Embassy Pictures unveiled plans to produce " The Bear, " the life story of the late Coach Paul " Bear " Bryant, and the film was completed by the end of the school year.

The areat Skydivers thrill to 9,000 feet plunges They sat huddled in the rear of the small plane waiting for the pilot to give the " go " signal. They had b een up for about 15 minutes, rising to 9,000 feet above the earth. There vi as little talk, some thinking of the planned ma- neuvers, others reflecting on the sensibility of what they were about to do. For most of the jumpers. it was nothing new. Several had registered hundreds of jumps. Yet. they still exper- ienced the anxiety, still felt the rush of adrenaline. " After you ' ve been jump- ing for a few years, the mind doesn ' t suffer from mental anxiety anymore, but the body can ' t be fooled. " Jack Alford. a chemical engineer- ing graduate of the Universi- ty, said. " It knows it ' s about Richard Washburn to fall. SO it pumps just as much adrenaline as ever. The experienced jumper leaps conscious that ever- ything ' s going to be all right but laughs at his own weak body for being afraid. " Alford and about 15 other students and graduates of the University were mem- bers of the Bama Skydivers, though not offically char- tered by the University, the Bama Skydivers had been affiliated with it for over 10 years. The Bama Skydivers met every Sunday at the small Eutaw airport. Because of the size of the plane, only about five could go up at one time. The preparations for the jump were considerable. The parachutist had to re- pack his parachute, line up at I the lead cords to the canopy and check his equipment. Most wore a special jump suit that had less wind resis- tance and allowed for a smoother fall. Then, the divers planned the sequence of maneuvers they would later perform in the air, going over and over the sequence in what was called " dirt diving. " A wide variety of formations, in- cluding stars, snowflakes, and doughnuts were per- formed. It took between 15 and 20 minutes for the plane to reach the desired altitude. After a signal from the pilot, the jumpers lined up on the plane ' s strut, hanging in the air as the wind tried to force them free. At the designated time, the divers broke their grip Richard Washhii Gathering up her parachute.

By arching their backs, the jumpers were able to " fly " toward each other and begin the forma- tions. At 2,500 feet the divers broke apart, " dumped " their parachutes and began the descent back to earth. And though many think it is a dangerous sport, the people who skydive regular ly argue that the fatality rate is low, and that the adven ture greatly outweighs the risk. " I guess it seems like a very insane sort of thing to do, " Alford said. Richard Washburn But Alford, who was also a certified skydiving instruc- tor, said he thought safety was a " relative term. " " Is it safer than jumping off a bridge or driving drunk back from a football game? It ' s safer than that, " he said. Skydiving is also a very social activity. " You build up a lot of friendships with other skydivers, " Bill Gar- rett, a former Bama Sky- diver, said. " Skydivers are considered by most to be crazy ... I guess you kind of stick to your own kind. " Sandra Medlock, a junior in advertising, said the pec pie involved in skydiving was one of the reasons she liked the sport so much. " It opens up a lot of opportuni ties for meeting new people and traveling, " she said. Before the prospective skydiver actually jumps from an airplane, he must go through hours of instruction on the ground. Then, he usu ally takes his first jump from a lower altitude. Alford said that although a lot of people try skydiving, less than 5 percent continue to jump. " Everyone ' s family gets worried and starts putting pressure on them to stop jumping, " he said. " It ' s one thing that when your par ents sent you off to college they hope that you don ' t do. " D — Lynn Rollings There ' s no turning back for Jack Alford and Bill Garrett, who left the airplane at 9.000 feet to descend to a small field near the Eutaw airport runway. In order to ensure a smooth fall to the earth, skydivers must use cords to " put on the breaks.

Julie .Andrew and Terri Carter; and four freshmen, Holly Whidby. Jennifer Bearden. Marjorie Rogers and .Michael McKee. Whidby was asked to have her polaroid ' taken when Seventeen spotted her in a dance class. " I ' m not the type that is usually inter- ested in that sort of thing. 1 was so surprised when they asked me because modeling has never entered my roind. " she said. " It was a great exper- ience. " Whidby continued, " but it hasn ' t affected my life at all. In fact, most peo- ple didn ' t even recognize me. " But for Bearden, who was chosen from 200 applicants, it was a different story. " I ' m doing some modeling jobs because of it. " she said. " An agency in Birmingham called me. and I did a fashion show at Parisian and I am now working with their fash- ion coordinator. " , s for future modeling. Bearden said. I ' ll probably do some modeling after school. It ' s good money and a lot of fun. Right now though. Ill just do jobs on the weekends and keep do- ing it as long as 1 can. " Hansen, unlike Whidby or Bearden. had his own unique way of getting cho- sen by Seventeen. " I met them Sunday when they came down. " he said. " A cousin of mine in Mew York called and told me they were coming so I met them and showed them around the campus. " A van was ordered for the Seventeen staff to tour the campus in, but when it nev- er materialized, Hansen took them around in his own car. Afterwards, he was asked to pose.

" And that fun showed through in the magazine. Is- sues went fast as students came back to school for the fall semester. Many were impressed with the spread, but others had less favorable impres- sions. " It was good, but I had to wonder if all the hoopla was deserved. " Christine Sparks, a junior in psychology, said.

Everything else was $25 worth of floor wax, some tuna fish and a makeup mir- ror. " Just what every man dreams of, " Long said. Just what did Long do to deserve this? He, along with Denise Sniff, Stacey Hutch- ins and Gary Brown, ap- peared on the game show " Wheel of Fortune " in De cember, representing the University during the show ' s College Week. Long also won $1,400 in cash on the show. But Hutchins and Brown were the big winners, each raking in $1,400 in cash plus nu merous prizes. Hutchins re turned with a motor scooter a sailboat and a Gucci bag Brown won two bikes, a mo tor scooter and two pairs of leather Ray-bans. ( " My roommates claimed those, " Brown said.)

The whole adventure be- gan when the University was chosen by the show to par- ticipate in College Week. Over 75 students auditioned for the four spots. After the four were chosen, plans were made to fly to Califor- nia December 1. The stu dents were responsible for paying air fare and any other expenses, paying an average of $600 each. Once they arrived in Cali- fornia, the students spent a whirlwind weekend of taping shows and seeing the sights. Sniff said the most excit- ing part of the trip for her was taking part in the film- ing and learning how a game show is put together techni- cally. " It was fascinating for me to watch the stage crew and to see the cue cards, which is how the contes- tants really bought prizes, " Sniff said. She said the crew lists the prizes the contes- tants can choose from on cue cards, and they pick from that list. Sniff said she enjoyed playing tourist as well. " I hung off the Rodeo Drive sign, " she said. " I thought if I had to do something to be a tourist, it would be to hang off the Rodeo Drive sign. " Hutchins said she also en joyed watching the crew put the show together. She said she and Sniff sat in the audi- ence and watched the stu- dents from the other schools play. " When they messed up, we ' d cheer, " she said with a smile. " It was hilarious. " Hutchins said she liked to play tourist also. " We saw Hollywood and Vine, and the Hollywood sign hanging off the mountain. But Universal Studios was the biggie.

Contes- tants In the annual RHA Spring Fling were forced to bundle up warmly to keep out the cold, biting wind as they competed for coveted first place trophies. More than 300 people gathered on the Quad that frigid Sunday as 23 teams, each with 10 enthusiastic members, jumped, ran and dodged their way to victory in the dormie Olympics. The games ranged from " Sit on It, " a balloon pop- ping game, to wheel barrow races, frisbee throws and a " Penny Dive.

" There was flour ev- erywhere! In my shoes, down my shirt, all over me! " In the event, contestants were given a three-minute time limit to locate 50 pen- nies hidden in a massive vat of flour. Tutwiler gathered 23 coins to win the contest. Other events included an egg and spoon race, a three- legged race and a bat twirl. " The bat twirl was by far the participants ' favorite event, " said Larry New- some, residence hall admin- istrative assistant. " The team members placed their heads on a bat and ran around it 10 times. When they were so dizzy they could barely stand, they went on to tag the next member. It was hilarious! " An obstacle course, a two person egg toss and " Musi- cal Water Buckets, " a vari- ation on musical chairs, completed the crowded slate of events. In the bright afternoon sunshine, many contestants shed their sweats and coats as temperatures rose. " Be- sides, we were doing too much running around to stay cold, " said Tom Niko- dem, a Paty resident from Buffalo, N.Y. Newsome felt that the event " went well. " " Everybody had a won- derful time. We did have problems with scheduling too many events. We didn ' t even get to the tug-ofwar. The Spring Fling started at 1 p.m. and ran until 5:30 p.m. The events were closely spaced, so I don ' t think we wasted any time having fun! " When the final tallies were completed, Paty Hall placed first in the men ' s division, while Mary Burke won the first place trophy for the women. " We were elated, " said resident assistant Deedie Dowdle, a senior from Char- lotte, M.C. " We worked hard and we deserved it! " Mary Burke also won spe- cial awards for showing the most spirit and for being most cooperative with the judges. Even with the cold tem- peratures and lack of time to complete all of the sched- uled events, students still enjoyed the chance to relax, get a little dirty, meet fellow dorm residents and have an end-of-year fling in the chilly, hidden spring.

Junior April Martin from McCalla concentrates on completing the obstacle course for the Sommerville Saints II team. Fewer games didn ' t mean less fun for the participants of the an- nual Spring Fling event sponsored by the Residence Hall Association on March 31. " Last year it was hard to get all the events finished in the time allotted because there were so many teams playing, " Terri Farmer, chairman of the Spring Fling, said, " so this year we had fewer games to make sure there was enough time for everything. " " It was a blast, " Deedie Dowdle, a senior who played for the women ' s team of Mary Burke Hall, said. " I really look forward to it ev- ery year. " The bat twirl, sit on it and the tug of war were some of the games that weren ' t tak- en out and the students en- joyed the most. " The best thing was the tug of war, " Rachel Ward, a junior who lived in Fitts Hall, said. " We had some injuries and at the end of the day there weren ' t many who could still play. So every- body had to pull together and work hard to win. " Fitts Hall, the women ' s honors dorm, produced two teams that dominated the women ' s competition. Fitts I won first place and Fitts II placed second. The Saints 1 team of Sommerville came in third overall. " This year ' s games were better, more organized which made more fun, " Jen- nifer Grundy, a junior from Montgomery who played for Fitts I, said. The men ' s competition was spiced by a rivalry be- tween the Paty Knights, re- presentatives of the 2nd floor of Paty Hall, and the male representatives of Mary Burke Hall. Although the Spring Fling didn ' t give points toward the All Sports Trophy that was awarded to the team with the best results in in- tramural sports during the year, the Knights and the Burke team used this competition to prove who the best team was. " We won the bat twirl, the wheel barrow race and the sack race and the egg toss, " Paty Knight Mark McLellan, a sopho- more from Illinois, said, " and we had a lot of sec- ond place wins. " " We won first place overall, " O.K. Bryant, a Paty Knight from Las Ve- gas, Nev., said, " and they placed third. " The Paty Bengals won second place in the divi- sion. " There was a lot of competition but every- body had a good time, " Bryant said. " It was all fun and games.

It was a celebration of a new tradition. The Bama Days Jambo- ree brought students, pro- spective students from local high schools and the com- munity together to honor new head football coach Ray Perkins. After receiving the key to the city during a Thursday night banquet, Perkins was honored when the Mayor ' s Advisory Council pro- claimed April 16 " Ray Per- kins Day " during the Jambo- ree.

With hands poised to raise the bottles, Jon Lancaster, Ken Borchardt and Brad Duncan, prospective students from area high schools, anticipate the Mello Yello drinking contest. Borchardt was the winner. " I am deeply honored, " Perkins said, " for such a tre- mendous outpouring of sup- port. " Perkins also entertained questions from the audi- ence. " It was great to be able to talk to him on a one-to-one basis, " said Brad Duncan, a visiting prospective student from Moundville. " He has some good ideas about the football team. I ' m sure he ' ll do very well. " Before the Perkins presen- tation, students and commu- nity members climbed a greased pole, consumed massive amounts of pizza, tossed frisbees and drank bottle after bottle of Mello Yello in a series of field games.

When Stevie Nicks and Joe Walsh came to Memori- al Coliseum October 29th, it was proof that High Tide could bring In real talent after a rocky year in 1982. Around 10,000 fans filled the coliseum to hear Stevie sing. Walsh opened for Nicks, and by all accounts, he put on an energetic show. " He was a good opening act, " High Tide Chairman Bud Finley said. " The show was good. " But the crowd came to see Nicks, and she didn ' t dis- appoint them. " Stevie had the crowd mesmerized, " Fin- ley said. " As far as her per- formance was concerned, I think it was the best show we had all year. " It took six limousines to bring Nicks from her Bir- mingham hotel to Tusca- loosa for the concert, ac- cording to Finley. The Satur- day she performed was a home football game week- end, and hotel rooms in T- town were non-existant. " She brought her dog, too, " Finley said. " It stayed back- stage during the show, though. " The dog was definitely comfortable in Nicks ' dress- ing room. According to the terms of her contract, High Tide provided Broyhill furni- ture, a piano and balloons to make it just like home. Home must have been some- where in the tropics, be- cause two four-foot palms, two two-foot palms and two small ferns were also speci- fied in the contract. Nicks ' crew ate and drank well, also. She asked for Remy Martin cognac, arti- choke hearts (which were out of season), Stolichnoiya vodka, St. Emilion wine and avocadoes, not to mention fruit salad, Dannon yogurt, Gatorade, cold pasta salad. and tossed salad for 40. And that ' s just part of the list. The concert had the high- est attendance since Charlie Daniels came to the campus in 1980, and gross receipts totaled over $110,000. " The promoters were impressed, " Finley said. " They ' ve been talking about shows here ever since. " The main thing, " Finley added, " was to prove that we do have a viable rock and roll market here. And we proved that Nicks was a real success story. " " It was a success.

A sound system, lights and a stage were enough for nine bands on April 12 during the Air Guitar Contest sponsored by the Union Programs Films Division. " The Air Guitar Contest provides a musical outlet for students who appreciate rock and roll, " Tom Rima, director of Union Films, said. " It gives the student body a chance to fake it to the top. " ' The bands " faked it " us ing reinforced cardboard and aluminum foil for guitars, trash cans for drums and ashtray lids for tambourines. The bands could not use real instruments in the contest.

Johnson played guitar for The Beast, the group that won the award for best dra- matic interpretation. ' Two of our guitarists have played guitars before, " Craig Ploch, the lead singer of The Beast said. " They looked like they were really playing. " Most of the bands didn ' t practice very much to keep as much spontaneity in the act as possible. " We practiced about three hours before the show to get a routine, " Plock said. " We had a routine to avoid getting in the way of each other. The least amount of preparation made it more fun. " Most bands also came to- gether without much prepara- tion. " We just messed around in the room before we came, " said Mark Myers, a freshman in aerospace engineering and key- board player for Mark and his Nuts, said. " Our band got to- gether in about five minutes, too. One guy said, ' Well, if you ' ll do it, then I ' ll do it, ' " Myers said. " Then another guy said the same thing and we got about five members quick.

Grider designed all the costumes for the band as exact duplicates of those worn by Culture Club. " The resemblance was un- real, " said Lisa Winter. " They could have passed for the real thing.

Topping off the concert was the per- formance of " All Night Long, " complete with break dancers. The encore was the best part of the show, according to Susan Mansfield, a senior in math. " It brought everyth- ing together — both danci ng and singing. It was unbeliev- Frank Morgan able how they (the break dancers) could dance with their whole bodies. " Robert Hoelscher, director of Union Programs, agreed that the show was a suc- cess. " Obviously, we feel good, " Hoelscher said. He added that the concert grossed over $170,000, a " few thousand " of which would go to High Tide, the concert division of Union Programs. A promoter brought Richie to Tusca- loosa, a system that Hoelscher likes. " It allows the promoter to make mon- ey, so he will come back. We want to bring shows in where no student funds are risked, " Hoelscher said. Hoelscher said Richie was a success because he at- tracted a broad audience.

Jerry Fal- well told a group of students he was concerned with inter- national problems and the virtual disappearance of Ju- deo-Christian ideas. Outside Foster Audito- rium, members of the Uni- versity ' s Gay Student (Jnion and the Tuscaloosa Femi- nist Alliance carried signs and handed out anti-Falwell literature. Falwell delivered his speech without serious inci- dent, though hecklers plagued him throughout its entirety, especially during the question-answer session. " I just don ' t approve of some of his statements and I wanted to state my case, too, " said one girl. The leader of the moral majority said he was con- vinced the moral decay of the past few decades was taking a turn around. He said the country was " on the threshold of moral rebirth. " " Two-thirds of our young people have escaped from the shackles of the past two or three decades, " he said. Addressing what he con- sidered a problem with the government, Falwell said the country was founded on Christian beliefs and the Su- preme Court made decisions which contradicted those be- liefs, citing the legalization of abortion. " Why are we ashamed in our courts that we are a na- tion under God, " he said. " In the past few years, the judi- cial system has determined not only to interpret the law but to legislate. " Falwell also discussed the country ' s military defense, saying the shooting down of the Korean commercial jet- liner in September was " typical behavior of the Bol- sheviks. " He said he believed the passengers " accomplished more in death than they did in their lives because Presi- dent Ronald Reagan will get his defense budget through Congress easier. " Falwell said he was also in favor of the American par- ticipation in El Salvador. " We can stop them (the So- viets) in El Salvador or we can stop them in El Paso. " After the speech, Falwell opened the floor for ques- tions, most of which were centered around the Univer- sity ' s recognition of the Gay Student Union. " I don ' t believe in giving credibility to something per- verted, " he said. However, Falwell said he agreed with University President Joab Thomas ' decision to " not make the University a battle- ground and let the courts de- cide it.

On October 30, Kelly Grider, a junior from Huntsville, donned a braided wig, covered his face with white pancake ma- keup and a star was born. Grider became Boy George, or, more accurately, " Boy Kelly, " for what he thought would be a costume for Halloween only. " I would have never done it again if it hadn ' t gone over so well, " Grider said. " But everyone liked it a lot. " In fact, the look was so popular that Grider and his " band " " Sweet Culture, " were approached by an agent after winning second- place at an air band (lip synching) contest at a local bar the night after his party debut. The group accepted bookings at bars in Mont- gomery and Pensacola, Fla., and began travelling down the not-so-long road to pseu- do-superstardom. Since those early perfor- mances, Grider, sometimes alone and sometimes with " Street Culture, " performed (in one of his six self-made costumes) in lip synching and look-alike contests and exhibitions in Atlanta, Flor- ida and at several places in Alabama. He was ap- proached by Double-Take, a look-alike agency in Mew York, to do commercial and video work during his sum- mer vacation. Boy Kelly ' s popularity was like a real rock star ' s. During a performance at Midfield High School in Bir mingham, the stage was mobbed with screaming young girls. Grider had to have a police escort. " I felt lucky at first, " he said. " In the early days, I didn ' t know if I looked like Boy or not. At first it was just putting on makeup, but now it ' s gotten to the point where I have to restructure my face and reshape it to get the real Boy look. It takes about two hours. Boy Kelly ' s look was so convincing that he was able to get into the V.I. P. Lounge at Studio 54 in New York during Spring Break. Here he was photographed with Dianne and Egon von Fur- stenburg by RPM, the pho- tographer for the Village Voice. " It was great, " Grider said. " Everyone was asking me if I was doing a duet with Dolly Parton. " Grider said he didn ' t know how long he would keep per forming. Til do it a little while longer, " he said.

Whether it was the neurotic com- panions and nutty psy- chotherapists in " Beyond Therapy " or the framed and murdered " Bully, " the Uni- versity ' s theater season defi- nitely had its share of memo- rable characters and unique characterizations. The theater season began with the Stage II production of the Christopher Durang comedy " Beyond Therapy " in the A.B. Theatre. " I had never been in that theater before, " said Mindy Thompkinson, a junior from Mobile. " It ' s small but in a way it adds to the intimacy of a production. Being so close to the actors in " Be- yond Therapy " made me feel really involved in the show. " " Beyond Therapy " in- volved the courtship of Pru- dence and Bruce, two off- beat New Yorkers who, on the advice of their psychoth- erapists, meet through " per- sonals " in the newspaper. The production starred Laura Nettles and Jamie Lawrence. " They worked very well together. They were very funny and excellent actors, " Marie Wilson, a freshman from Huntsville, said. Sidney Michaels ' " Dylan " was the first main stage pro- duction in the Marian Gallaway Theatre. The play attempted to represent the wild behavior and creative anxieties of British poet Dy- lan Thomas who came to at- tention in the mid-1930 ' s. The production was di- rected by Brad Myers, assis- tant professor in the theater department, who described the play as a " raucous even- ing " of theater on the large Gallaway stage. This University Theatre production won the Ala- bama section of the Ameri- can College Theater Festival competition, and four actors were cited for their work. Theresa Carver and Drew Tombrello received nomina- tions for the Irene Ryan Award. Dianne Teague and Jeanna Ray were presented with " Acting Commenda- tions. " On Dec. 7-10, David Stor- ey ' s " In Celebration " was presented at the A.B. The- ater. The Stage 11 production marked the debut of Jamie Lawrence as director. Law- rence, a veteran actor with University Theater and a graduate student with the theater department, chose this British play which con- cerns a couple celebrating their 40th anniversary. Their three sons come home for the occasion and the family goes out to din- ner. Through the conversa- tions before and after the dinner, the family handles certain problems. Lawrence said the play ' s broad message was " how all the people view the exper- ience of family, the respon- sibilities of parents and sib- ling respect for parents. It makes a valuable statement about families. " Completing the construction of the steps for the round plat- form in " Dylan. " shop foreman Ron Stoffregen drives nails into the set constructed to the specifi- cations of Bradley J. Myers, direc- tor of the play. Before The Box Office Opens After two years of planning, construction, practice, sewing and preparation, the University Theater pro- duced a year of plays on subjects from " Bully, " a world premiere at the Marian Gallaway Theater, to " Much Ado About Nothing, " an oft-produced Shakespearean clas- sic. " The real preparation for a play begins at least two years before the play is on stage, " said Dr. Edmond Williams. Chairman and Associate Professor of the Theater and Dance Department. " The number of man hours involved is incredi- ble. Nobody would believe us if we told them. " The plays to be produced were chosen the September before the season began at the Marian Gallaway Theater. The directors were assigned and plans were made about possible scenery and costumes. On the main stage at the Gallaway Theater, faculty of the theater department became the directors of the productions. On Stage II. the directors were chosen from the Masters of Fine Arts Program. " The Stage II directors are chosen from the second and third year graduate students in the MFA Program. " William said. " The three-year program produces some excellent di- rectors. " Student Life: Theater 39 Character " I read the play for a class before I transferred here, " said Rhonda Ballard, a trans- fer student from Mississippi State. " It lived up to my ex- pectations. " The cast included Drew Tombrello, Ginger Pierce, Gary Wise, Zander Brietzke, John Erlanger, Laura Net- tles and Greg Babb. Zander Brietzke directed the first Stage II production of 1984 which featured two one-act plays by British play- wright Harold Pinter, " The Lover " and " The Dumb Waiter. " Jamie Lawrence and Barb Gerardo starred in the former while James Li- gon and David Klein ap- peared in the latter work. On Feb. 13-18, the theater department presented " Bul- ly " as part of its " New Play- wright ' s Program. " Paul D ' Andrea concen- trated on the relationship be- tween the bully Clayton Ba- liss and his love, Sally Faye Redmond. The main stage produc- tion was directed by Sara Gable-Krauch, assistant pro- fessor in the theater, and fea- tured Jeff Jeffcoat, Kathy Morgan, Lisa Melendez, Jeff Wilson and Jamie Holland. " It was moving, very well crafted, " said Cecelia Mitch- ell, a journalism senior. " D ' Andrea is an excellent writer and the play is great. " Jamie Lawrence ' s second Stage II production of the season was Ed Graczyk ' s " Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, " Feb. 22-25 in the A.B. Theatre. The complex play which earlier proved the basis for a Robert Alt- man film, was concerned with the reunion of " The Dis- ciples of James Dean " 20 years after Dean ' s death. " I was surprised to see this play presented, " said Chip Bounds. " The movie version never got near Tus- caloosa. I thought the idea was interesting. I was glad I came to see it. " The Stage 11 production starred Laura Nettles, Tricia Rogers, Diane Teague, Mark Womack and Theresa Carv- er. A resetting of Shake- speare ' s " Much Ado About Nothing " provided a chance for members of the cast to work on changing one type of play into another. The show was set in the early 1900 ' s with slight alteration of Shakespeare ' s dialogue to make the play fit the time period. A working fountain highlighted the set, which was designed to be taken on the road. " That was the first time I ' d been in the Gallaway The- atre. I haven ' t seen too many plays in my life and it was amazing to me that ev- eryone did so well, " sopho- more Beverly Guindon of Fairhope said. " It ' s a great relief to be able to bring out on stage lots of emotions and feelings that you don ' t get to let out in normal social situations, " graduate student Laura Net- tles of Brewton said.

Chip Cotipe Box office After the directors were appointed, the search for actors was on. " Of course, there is a fight among the directors for ac- tors, " William said. " That ' s inevitable every year since some of the plays either have practice or are produced at the same time on the two stages. " " Really, the rehearsal and the actual production is just the tip of the iceberg, and nobody realizes it, " Williams said. The stage preparation was as important as the direction of the actors. The stage had to be conformed to the small size of the A.B. Theater or the largeness of the main theater at Marian Gallaway. " The set designers prepare the sets and scenery to the director ' s specifications and what can be done within the limits of the stage, " Williams said. The set designers got to work with different types of stages during the theater department ' s pilot run of the Uni- versity of Alabama Theater on Tour. Shakespeare ' s play " Much Ado About Nothing " was performed in the high school auditoriums of the small cities of Athens, Gunters- ville and Selma. " 1,600 people packed into Guntersville ' s high school auditorium and we had to do the play on a small stage, " Williams said. " That becomes a real test for the actors and the stage crew whose largest audience was 338 people in the main theater. " D — Tara Askew Chip Cooper Student Life: Theater 41 Past perfectly preserved Gniversity ' s ' biography ' documents institution ' s liistory Not too many people write epics nowadays — at least, not like Homer and Milton used to write. But Suzanne Rau Wolfe could almost say she has produced a work of epic proportions. Actually, two epics: University lost (up to Civil War) and University re- gained (1865 to present). Un- like Milton, she didn ' t tell the story in iambic pentam- eter; she told it in pictures. To the naked eye, the fin- ished product is a 256-page, 8 ' 2-by-ll-inch book of around 600 photos, docu- ments, letters and such. But The University of Alabama: A Pictorial History, is also much, much more. To begin with, it is a fairly comprehensive history of the University. " I was not in- terested in simply collecting a lot of old pictures and sup- plying captions for them, " said editor Wolfe. " I tried — as far as is possible in a pic- torial study — to supply the reader with a running text which would at least men- tion the most important is- sues of the day, the major challenges each president faced, and the methods he used to address those chal- lenges. " She tried to show, as well, " how the University developed and how the deci- sions made by one genera- tion affected, for better or worse, the options available for succeeding generations. " It is a very factual and honest history, according to Guy Hubbs. who did much of the research for the vol- ume. " I can only say I was left alone to follow the evidence wherever it led me.

" However, added Hubbs, if anyone ' s heroes become tar- nished " it will be because people are not aware of the facts " He and Suzanne men- tioned a number of tradition- al stories about the Universi- ty that may not be entirely factual. One Civil War legend says that the guardhouse (also called the Roundhouse, lo- cated next to the library) which was the only building on campus constructed ex- clusively for military pur- poses, was, ironically, not burned. That story may or may not be true. In their re- search, they discovered that the roof of the guardhouse had been extensively burned, and a new roof con- structed in 1867. " Maybe they did burn it, " said Su- zanne, " but it is stone, and maybe the fire just didn ' t go very far. " Suzanne also deals can- didly with campus contro- versies, often letting local newspapers help her tell the story, so the reader can see what the public was hearing about a particular episode. For example, there was a murder on campus — one student killed another dur- ing an argument — in 1858. That incident even made it into The New York Times. She also included the major subjects of discussion de- bate between students and faculty, faculty and adminis- tration, administration and alumni, alumni and trustees, trustees and legislators, and so on. This history provides the comforting knowledge that the University has sur- vived and prospered despite many periods of controver- sy and discord in its 150 years. Although it is not a whitewash job or a purely 42 Student Life: Pictorial History Pictured in 1927, Clarlt Hall was painted yellow in 1913, as were Manly and Garland Halls.

Student Life: Pictorial History 43 Perfectly public relations piece, the pictorial history should in- spire loyalty and pride in Alabama alumni and stu- dents. Besides showing how many storms the institution has weathered successfully, it points out, as well, many positive reasons for pride. The antebellum campus ' s scientific community was " really extraordinary, " said Hubbs. Barnard, Mallet, Tuo mey, Nott and other mem- bers of the pre-war faculty were among the intellectual and scientific elite of their time. The observatory, which was designed by F.A.P. Barnard, was then the best in the South. J.W. Mal- let was a member of the Royal Society of London. Mi- chael Tuomey, a geologist, and somewhat of a sooth- sayer, disclosed enormous coal reserves in the state, and even predicted that a spot between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa would be- come the site of major indus- try. Academic he- roes at the Uni- versity were not limited to the antebellum pe riod. though. Between 1913 and 1930, Alabama had eight students who became Rhodes scholars. One of these, Robert Jemison Van de Graaf, became interna- tionally known for his Van de Graaf generator. The pictorial history should definitely interest alumni and students. But it also has a much broader ap- peal. In some ways, the Cini versity has been a micro- scosm in which the large po- litical and social issues of the day could be seen on a smaller scale. " I came away with the sense that this Uni- versity has often been an arena for the state and the South to play out political issues, " Wolfe said. The burning of the campus dur- ing the Civil War and George Wallace ' s stand in the schoolhouse door are two examples she noted. " For preserved Showing off fiis stripped down Ford automobile. Lindy Hood, an All-American basketball player for the Tide, carries his car for a spin near Denny Field sometime in 1932. D that reason, it is a very interest ing history. " The Reconstruction peri- od is another example of the University as a microcosm. History professor Sarah Wig- gins, who served as Wolfe ' s consultant on that period, re- counted that, in 1869, a Tus- caloosa newspaper " ran a series of violent, partisan cartoons attacking the facul- ty and president. " who were Republican or appointed by Republicans. " The newspa- per here had a vitriolic editor — he was head of the Klan in Alabama. He carried on an extensive attack that ran on for years, " Wiggins said. Two or three of these car toons are included in the book with explanations. The newspaper ' s " vitriolic prose and scathing cartoons so an- noyed the Republican gov- ernment in Montgomery, " the book reads, " that in Au- gust 1869, the regents " (trustees) " " voted to move the University out of Tusca- loosa. " The editor, however, " notified the board that he was " determined to establish the Monitor wherever the University may be located. ' " The regents changed their minds. Attacks on faculty mem- bers because of their con- nections with the Republi- can Reconstruction govern- ment " were absolutely a mi- crocosm of what happened as Democrats attacked Re- publicans throughout the state and the South, " said Wiggins. " It was not unique at all. " In a sense, the pictorial history is all things to all people. It can be read for both fun and profit. The book has some of what might be called hard-core history, which is necessary for continuity and depth. It includes a series of maps of campus, prepared by art his- tory professor Robert Mel- lown, which show the cam- pus in various stages of growth (and of destruction t orm rooms were decorated to reflect individuality even in 1910.

Wolfe also used pictures of the current build- ings while they were under construction. " You can drive around and look at the buildings today, " she said, " so it is much more interest- ing to see the buildings un- der construction and to see the old cars outside.

The pictorial history was published by The University of Alabama Press, and hence " was put through the regular routine of the Press, " said the author. " From the beginning, we felt that this should be a Univer- sity Press book. It should meet all the requirements of the University Press, and the Press committee should de- cide whether or not it should be accepted. " preserved The pictorial history did, in fact, pass the test, and was met with en- thusiasm. " This is one of the biggest projects we ' ve ever undertaken, " said Daniel Ross, marketing manager at the Press. " There has never been a one-volume history of the University published. J.B. Sellers ' history went up to around 1900; and he nev- er published part two. " The book is not just a big job in terms of quantity, ei- ther. " A book of photos, of course, is more expensive to produce than a book of words. Since, to a degree, the pictures tell the story, " said Ross, " quality is so im- portant. " The fact that it was pub- lished by the University Press, rather than a trade press, means that it is a bet- ter product. " We publish on acid-free paper, so it lasts longer. If it isn ' t left out in the rain or something, I ' m told it should last 300 years. " Many will prefer The Uni- versity of Alabama: A Picto- rial History to Paradise Lost; it ' s certainly shorter and ea- sier reading. Milton fans, though, should not despair. Like all good history, this book has its themes and its message, whereby the read- er may learn from his mis- takes and from the victories of his forebears and hence better himself and his soci- ety. However, the lessons don ' t dominate — they are interspersed with novelty, humor and lots of pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. And The University of Ala- bama, it seems, is really quite photogenic. _ Anna Kathryn Chism ll ' I S fA Originally known as the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Memorial Li- brary, this building, constructed in 1925. housed the library until 1939 and administrative offices until 1970.

Student Life: Pictorial History 47 Musical cheers Students sing praises of music Stephanie Williamson couldn ' t study without it. Mark Goodson couldn ' t sleep without it. Ace Johnson couldn ' t live without it. Whatever its form, music definitely had an impact on college students ' daily lives. " For me, music didn ' t be- gin until Kiss released its first album, " Ace Johnson, a senior in radio communica- tions from Greenville said. " Music just didn ' t exist be- fore then. People kept telling me I ' d outgrow Kiss. They were right. I outgrew Kiss. I found Motley Crue, " the self-proclaimed " metal- head " (heavy metal music lover) added. Mark Goodson, a senior in advertising from Memphis, said his tastes were a little softer, but his love for music was just as strong. " It ' s great to drive down the road with the radio blast- ing and singing along. Then at night, a little soft music makes it much easier to get to sleep. " Stephanie Williamson said music helped her com- prehend difficult classwork. " With the radio on in the background, it ' s easier for me to concentrate to study for a test, presentation, or whatever, " the sophomore from Tampa, Fla. said. " I can ' t study in total silence. It ' s too loud " To whet their appetites for music, students went to concerts, bought albums, lis- tened to the radio, or created a world of their own by lis- tening to a Sony Walkman. " Getting to class is not so monotonous when you can pop a tape into your walk man, " Jeffrey Beanes, a freshman from Sweetwater said. " Besides, if you have a good tape with you, and the lecture gets too boring, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the music. " " I like dance music, " Le Kita Johnson, a freshman from Tuscaloosa, said. " Mi- chael Jackson and Prince are the best. " For those who preferred heavy metal to pop. Ace Johnson had his own heavy metal radio show on WVUA- FM, the campus station, ev- ery Friday night. Johnson became known for his taped promos for the show, which featured sound effects depicting ripping out the tongues of pop stars Hall and Oates. Another of Johnson s pro- mos featured vomiting noises in response to the mention of groups like Cul- ture Club, the Jacksons and Spandau Ballet. □ Jacksons tease Birmingham The on-again off-again Bir- mingham stop of the Jacksons ' Victory tour was officially " off " by early August, ending months of speculation that be- gan when the Jacksons stopped in the city for a week of rehearsals in late June and early July. Birmingham had been a " possible " site for the multi- million dollar show since (JSA Today announced the group ' s intention to open their tour in the city. Although publicity and man- agement officials handling the tour refuted statements an- nouncing the Birmingham site as the tour ' s opening date, speculation was high when Mi- chael and his brothers stopped in Birmingham to rehearse in the Birmingham-Jefferson Civ- ic Center for the upcoming tour. During the group ' s week- long stay, rumors flourished that a performance had been scheduled for Sunday, July 1. Tour officials would not com- ment throughout the week, but The Birmingham Mews learned that the group did, in fact, plan to perform before leaving town. The illness of the band ' s drummer, however, forced a cancellation of the show before it had even been officially an- nounced. Just when it seemed that Bir mingham and the rest of the state wouldn ' t be able to see the famous brothers, the group finally appeared Friday, July 29 from a patio at their hotel during a rally organized by a Birmingham video program. " My brothers and 1 would like to thank you for treating us so nice, " Marlon Jackson told the crowd of about 2,000. " We love you very much. God bless you. " He said the group had indeed planned to perform in Birming- ham and confirmed the cancel- lation due to illness. After Marlon ' s appearance. Michael appeared briefly, wav- ing his sequin-gloved hand to the crowd for just a few sec onds before being whisked back into the hotel by secuity personnel. Rumors about a perfor mance in the city died briefly after the group left town, but were rampant again when a Bir mingham concert production firm, Ruffino Vaughn produc- tions, announced it was " about 90 percent sure " the Jacksons would perform at Birmingh- am ' s Legion Field Aug. 16, 17 and 18. The deal fell through, howev- er, and the Jacksons were final- ly booked into the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich, on the dates originally hoped for Birming ham. " Birmingham was seriously considered, " a representative from the Howard Bloom organi zation, the firm handling the tour ' s publicity, said. " But sev eral factors, including the be ginning of football season which would tie up the stadi um, made booking the tour there difficult. But the tour isn ' t over yet. There ' s still a chance, I guess.

As Circle K members scurried around the Quad on December 1 1 to set up the annual " Luminaries on the Quad " festival, dark purple clouds hung ominously in the balmy 60 degree air. A tornado watch had already been issued. Suddenly, it began to rain. Thunder, lightening and hail followed as a powerful cold front prepared to turri the deep South into a deep freeze. In the next few days, temperatures plunged to zero and below as Alabama faced its coldest Christmas in over 50 years. Students trad ed windbreakers for heavy winter coats, scarves and hats during final exam week as winter ' s grip tightened. Christmas shopping time was juggled to fit into exam sched- ules as students braved the cold, biting wind to pick up last minute items for family and friends. Spirits were the only thing warm about holiday parties and religious services as the cold snap became an abrupt intruder into almost all holiday activities. On Christmas Day, portions of the northern part of the state received a light dusting of snow, making it the first semi-white Christmas since the 1930 ' s. The snow, however, did not reach far enough south to affect Tuscaloosa. " It seemed more like February than December on Christmas morning, " said Fran Woods, a junior from Valley Head, a small town in northeast Alabama. " Snow flurries and a -9 tempera- ture really made it seem like a real old-fashioned Christmas, though. " " It may have been my best Christmas ever, " said Jane Seizmore, a freshman from Tupelo, Miss. " I always wanted a white Christmas. For me, it ' s a double treat. I w s born on Dec. 25.

What could have been a typical scene in New York or Los Angeles was actually oc- curring in Tuscaloosa, where the breakdancing fad had finally arrived. Brown, along with his brother Kevin and several other locals, discovered the street dancing by watching television and going to mov- ies and then taught them- selves the moves. " We ' re completely self- taught. We learned by imi- tating and then improving. We learned popping, moon- walking and stuff like that first, " he said.

" We ' ve been popping and moonwalking since tenth grade, " Ken said. " After Flashdance ' came out, we started actually breakdanc- ing.

Richard Sar- afin ( " Vanishing Point, " " The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing " ) was named to di- rect the film and Michael Kane, writer of the then un- released " Jaws III " and " The Deep II, " was named to write the screenplay. Bry- ant was to have final approv- al of both the script and the cast under terms of the con- tract. In December of the same year, Bryant announced he would retire from coaching after the Liberty Bowl. He died less than a month later. Spangler announced Bryant ' s death would not af- fect his shooting schedule. He also said the end of Bryant ' s life would be in- cluded in the film. Bryant ' s daughter Mae Martin Tyson was given the final approval rights Bryant had reserved for himself. Sometime in early 1983, the Bryant family received a copy of the script and ob- jected to several different things, namely profanity, and suggested changes. " It ' s hard to pinpoint an exact time that the family objected, " said family attor- ney Sam Phelps. " Sometime during the spring of 1983, the family made a number of corrections on the script, it was passed back and forth between the family and Mr. Spangler many times. Many of the family ' s suggestions were incorporated in the script to make it factually and historically more cor- rect. The family was still not completely happy with the script, however. " Early reports that the family might try to sue Spangler for breach of con- tract to prevent release of the film were apparently wrong. Phelps said he knew of no plans to file suit. The script was not the only objection raised. Spangler announced that early plans to use two ac- tors, one to play young Bry- ant and a second to play an old Bryant, had been scrapped. He said Gary Bu- sey would play the title role. Busey had played several roles, including the title role in " The Buddy Holly Story. " That performance earned him an Oscar nomination. Soon after Busey ' s selec- tion, Tyson said she had not been allowed to approve the actor, although she never actually said she objected to the choice. In September 1982, the Alabama Film Commission, which had been working closely with Spangler, was ordered by Gov. George Wal- lace to withdraw from nego- tiations. Phil Cole, executive director of the Commission, said his office had spent " a few thousand dollars " to- wards making the film in Alabama. Cole said he did not think what happened with the Bear film had hurt Alabama ' s chance with oth- er films. ■it hurt that film, " Cole said. " But every film is a dif- ferent project. Our long range goal is to bring a film facility to the state. It was the Bryant family ' s objec- tion that stopped that film. " Cole added that the Com- mission was currently nego- tiating with " the private sec- tor " to bring a film studio to Alabama. Such a studio would guarantee two or three films would be made in Alabama each year. Spangler moved his film from Alabama to Georgia. The film commission in Georgia was recognized as one of the best in the nation. More films were made in that state than any other, ex- cluding California. Since its establishment in 1972 the Georgia Film and Videotape Office was responsible for bringing more than 200 fea- ture length films to that state, said Lynn Foster, pub- lic relations and information specialist for the office. That was roughly 10 times the number of films made in Ala- bama. " They ( " The Bear " movie crew) were here about six weeks around Christmas, " Foster said. " They hired about 1 15 people to work on the crew and some extras. They filmed in Atlanta, Americus and Athens. " The film crew also filmed at Agnes Scott, a small col- lege that played the role of The University of Alabama in the film, she said. The col- lege was also used in the Alan Alda film " The Four Seasons. " After filming in Georgia was completed Spangler planned to come to the Uni- versity to film background scenes. University officials said they had no way of pre- venting Spangler from film- ing there. " Our position had been all along that if Mr. Spangler obtained appropriate per- mits to film in Tuscaloosa, we would not interfere with that, " said University Presi- dent Joab Thomas. " We are prepared to cooperate with Mr. Spangler and his produc- tion company as long as his request relates to the filming of exterior locations. We have advised the Bryant family and their attorney of this, and they understand our position. " But on the day Spangler and Busey were to go to Ala- bama, Busey reportedly re- ceived two death threats and did not make the trip. Spangler did take a camera crew to the University cam- pus but poor weather condi- tions prevented him from filming. Things were finally start- ing to look up for the film in February. Embassy Pictures had signed to distribute the movie. Joe Sugar, executive vice-president in charge of distribution for Embassy, said an agreement had been reached with Spangler to distribute " The Bear. " Spangler ' s office was all smiles about the film. Spangler was out of town, but his assistant, Bonnie Bla- zak, said everything was " great. " Blazak had no doubts about the film ' s success. " Oh yes, the movie is defi- nitely a hit. Gary Busey cap- tures the essence of the Bear. It is a powerful perfor- mance. It is a wonderful film, you ' ll love it; there won ' t be a dry eye in the theater. " Blazak refused to say if Spangler exceeded his $6 million budget, but she said she had one other thing she wanted to add. " We felt like through the whole production that Bear ' s spirit had been with us. We shot a scene in a mill- town for two days in Georgia in the middle of the winter. It was supposed to be spring and we thought, ' Wouldn ' t it be great if it were warm and sunny like spring? ' And it was 70 degrees for two days. And we shot a scene in Ken- tucky on a horse farm and we said, ' Wouldn ' t it be great if there was just a little snow? ' That night it snowed. It was like Bear said, God, let it snow ' . " " There was a lot of love in the project. It was more than just a movie to us, " Blazak said. By the beginning of the fall semester, the film was already booked into theaters across the state, including Tuscaloosa ' s Fox Six. D — Andy Norwood Embassy Pictures Alone in his office.

Student programming per- sonnel had difficulties in en- couraging the average stu- dent to take a chance on an unfamiliar band. Barely a hundred people showed up in 1979 to see The Police in the Bama Theatre, but thou- sands claimed they were there. Taste in music was not al- ways the pr oblem, although the sad state of commercial radio in the area and the re- luctance of the local cable system to offer MTV did not help things. Rather, much of the contemporary student body preferred alcoholic re- freshment, either at a favor- ite bar or at home, and was reluctant to come to cam- pus except for classes. That couch at home was more ap- pealing due to technological advances in home entertain- ment. However, High Tide Pro- ductions defied student apa- thy in the fall of 1983, and in three instances, attempted to offer students alternative music. Country Punk Jason and the Mashville Scorchers performed as part of " Bama Fest " activities on Sept. 16. Oingo Boingo and a new Memphis band, The Breaks, played for the Homecoming pep rally on Sept. 29, and a Los Angeles punk band was joined by the Extras, for the Dec. 1 " Beat Auburn " pep rally. Each of these acts gave solid performances, but only a small, however ecstatic, crowd was present to hear them. Oingo Boingo gar- nered the most people, ap- proximately 500. The Scorchers were not an easy pill to swallow. Their shifts from country ballads to frantic rock proved unsettling to those spoon-fed on routine FM rock fare. Many of the stu dents who hung around the Ferguson parking lot that evening were more anxious to see the scheduled show ing of " Stripes " rather than experience brave new coun- try. Oingo Boingo was a cagey New Wave ensemble whose manic music demanded movement, dance, or at least, salivation. Their songs such as " Private Life " and " Wake tJp, It ' s 1984 " had been heard on FM and their videos seen on MTV. Oingo and X ' s appearance at pep rallies was a mistake, however. Mew Wave parti- sans and Crimson Tide sup- porters didn ' t necessarily mix. Many students who showed up for the pep rally did not linger long enough to size up the band. X albums were praised by most major rock critics in the country, and at the time of their appearance on cam- pus, their singles, " Breath- less " and " New World, " had received considerable radio airplay. Still their literate brand of punk rock had found only a small following here. For most campuses in the country, it would have been a real coup to book X, however on this campus, it was only a curiosity. It was hoped that Union Programs would persevere, and double their efforts to educate their audience. The campus newspaper and stu- dent radio station could only do so much. High Tide need- ed to commit to a long-term program and not be discour- aged by initial disinterest. Only a limited number of coliseum shows were going to be available for this cam- pus, and Lionel Richie and Kool and the Gang could only play here so many times. Union Programs was en- couraged to make a concert- ed effort to build a market for small, not necessarily commercial, concerts.

" Every- body ' s in the same boat. You don ' t have to look very hard to find someone to talk to about it. Everybody feels the same way. " Making it easier to ' tough it out " for some was the telephone. " My telephone bill for the first couple of months I was at school was a little bit too much, " said Tina Simmons, a junior from Hollywood, Fla. " But like the commercial says, long distance is the next best thing to being there " Writing letters to friends served much the same purpose.

Members of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority re- leased 5,000 balloons as a part of their annual Home- coming Balloon Derby. The Balloon Derby raised $2,200 for the American Cancer Society, a figure over two times bigger than the previous year ' s derby, according to Cathy Zaden. Zaden, who was in charge of the event, said the girls ar- rived at the stadium at 5;30 a.m. to start filling the bal- loons with helium. " While they (the (Jnion Programs) were taking down Bama Blast, we were blow- ing up the balloons for the game, " she said. Zaden said a ticket was attached to each balloon with the name of the pur- chaser and a message to whomever found the balloon to send it in with his name and address. The balloon that went the farthest trav- eled to South Alabama, around Jackson, Zaden said. " We had a south wind, " she said. " Last year, it went all the way to New York, but we had a north wind. This year they went straight to the Gulf. " Zaden said the man who sent the ticket from Jackson won $50, as did Tom Owens, the student who pur- chased the balloon. Much bigger than the Kappa ' s balloons but fewer in number, were the huge hot air balloons that floated above the campus Friday of Homecoming week. Coca-Cola and WJRD sponsored the event, giving $750 each to bring 11 bal- loons to campus. Most of the balloons came from a balloon club out of Georgia, according to Homecoming Chairman Paul Compton. Compton said the money went to give the pilots pro- pane for their balloons, mon- ey for motel rooms, Bama Blast tickets and a $100 allowance. The Tuscaloosa commu- nity enjoyed the colorful hot air balloons, Compton said. " We tried to promote the balloons as a community event, " Compton said. " There were a couple of thousand people there. While preparing for the event, Compton discov- ered several peo- ple inside the state who were interested in bringing their bal- loons next year. " It may get to be a big- ger event, " Compton said. One of the hot air balloons " had a problem. " Compton said, though it was just a mi- nor one. The balloon dipped down " for about two min- utes " near Mary Burke be- fore it regained altitude and joined the other 1 1 high above the campus. The event began late Friday afternoon on the Quad, and one pilot stuck around for the Homecoming bonfire that night to give adventur- ous students rides above the activity-filled Quad. — Susan Cullen Richard VAoshbum Floating in the strong upper air currents, an orange, red and yellow balloon is blown off course.

Sororities, fraterni- ties, and dorms worked long, hard hours preparing elaborate lawn decorations. " We started about two weeks ahead of time, " Kelley Kitchens, an Alpha Chi Omega, said. Kitchens said her sorority divided into committees to plan the lawn decora- tions and to prepare the house for in- coming alumni. " It ' s fun, " she said. " It brings a unity in the house. " One aspect of Homecoming that was sorely missed, according to Kitchens, was the choreography contest between sorority pledge classes. She said there just wasn ' t enough time with the Octo- ber 1 date to prepare for the contest. The early date was a strain in plan- ning the event, Paul Compton, Home- coming co-chairman, said.

Four 30-foot tele phone poles from South Central Bell held the structure together. Alsup said this year ' s bonfire was the biggest ever. " Most years, it burns until well after midnight, " he said. " The fire department put it out this year at 8 o ' clock Saturday morning. " Alsup said the Rangers camped out next to it to protect it from eager cele brators who might want to light it early.

The show sounded impressive: la- sers, " dancing water, " fireworks, routines by the cheerleaders, and of course the music. Hank Williams, Jr. and Jerry Lee Lewis performed at Bama Blast, the pep rally extraordinaire held the night before Homecoming. But it just didn ' t work out that way. Robert Hoelscher, director of Union Pro- grams, said that " in terms of what its goals were, no, it was not a success. " As a matter of fact, the event lost approximately $70,000. Around 25,000 people attended the show in Bryant-Den- ny Stadium, a number " much less than expected, " according to Hoelscher. Nicknamed " Bama Bust " by many students who attended the show, the event ' s future looked dim, and in Febru- ary, the Alumni Association decided to ax plans for a 1984 Bama Blast.

The Derby, with the theme " Salute to the Big Bands, " pitted the Universi- ty ' s sororities against one another as " Mad Hatters " to capture points through com- petitive activities. The big event began Wednesday, April 6 th and ended Satur- day, April 9th. The sorority that garnered the most points throughout the event won the overall competition. Alpha Chi Omega won the event. The Derby began Wednes- day afternoon with a car wash. The Sigma Chis pro- vided the raw labor, but the sororities had the tough task of luring in cars to get washed in the pouring rain. Each car was worth two points in the contest, and the Alpha Chis pulled in the most cars to win the event. Talent abounded Wednes- day evening at the Gong Show competition, in which each sorority entered its most talented members to capture the points for the event. Once again, the Al- pha Chis pulled off a victo- ry. Also on Wednesday night, a group of sororities participating in the spirit competition kidnapped the Sigma Chis and took them to a party at the L N Club. A band party greeted the fraternity brothers Thursday morning as another group of sororities took part in the spirit competition. One group threw a mud slide par- ty Thursday afternoon to try to convince the fraternity that it deserved the points for most spirit. Coors sponsored a band party at the fairgrounds Thursday night, featuring Momentum and the White Animals. The event was crowded, according to Al Hill, a Sigma Chi. " It was packed, " Hill said.

Friday was the big day: the day of the Golden Derby Hunt. Clues to the where- abouts of the golden derby were given out every few minutes, and sorority mem- bers frantically tried to deci- pher the clues to find the precious derby. Finally, the Phi Mus realized that the derby could only be in one place: in the middle of Marrs Pond. Resolutely, the girls wad- ed into the water, pulled on the string attached to the derby, and ... it broke. No derby. It eluded dive after dive into the muck of the pond, but the Phi Mus were given the credit for discover- ing its hiding place. The Derby Snatch was also on Friday. Each Sigma Chi wore a black derby to class, and beginning at 2:30, all of the derbys were fair game. Enterprising sorority members snatched the derbys off of the heads of the Sigma Chis to gather points for each hat. Only school buildings and the Sig- ma Chi house were off lim- its. The Alpha Chis snatched the most derbys to win the competiton. Field events were the highlight Saturday after- noon. Sorority members par- ticipated in an egg toss, a limbo contest, a tug-of-war and a greased pig chase. " The pig got loose from the fence, " Jim Wall, former Sigma Chi treasurer, said. " Everybody went after it. " Chaos, in other words. A sign contest was also held Saturday. Each sorority tried to best illustrate the theme of the Derby, and the Pi Phis snagged the victory. Saturday night was the grand finale of the Derby: the dance competition. Some sororities practiced for six to eight weeks before the contest, according to Wall. The sororities were judged by faculty and com- munity members on creativ- ity, timing and how the dance related to the theme of the Derby. The Phi Mus were the victors of the dance competition, and the 1983 Sigma Chi Derby was over. Part of the proceeds of the event went to the Wallace Village for Children, Wall said. The Village is a center for the treatment and reha- bilitation of children with minimal brain damage. The other half of the funds went to Panhellenic. and the mon- ey was divided equally be- tween the sororities. U — Susan Cullen afe at the Sigma Chi house.

The Upperville, Va. student was just one of many students that was af- fected by the flu or flu-like symptoms during a six week period in January and early February, according to Dr. Robert Sinclair, Director of the Russell Student Health Center. Sinclair said that in Febru- ary, there were 5,443 outpa- tients treated at the health center, a 9.9 percent in- crease over the year before. " A large number of these were attributable to these flulike problems the stuoents were having, " he said. Unfortunately, the health center did not have the per sonnel to do a total break down of the students treat ed, so it was not known ex actly how many were affect ed by the illness going around. " There ' s a lot of lost time for students, " Sinclair said. " We didn ' t fill the beds up- stairs (in the health center) because a lot of students have apartments now, but a few years ago something like this would have had the beds filled. " There were usu- ally 18 or 19 students ad- mitted to the health center on any given day, he said, but most were sent home to bed. " The home-to-bed lists we send to each department were really long during that six-week period, " Sinclair said. The general consensus of the staff of the health center was that most of the stu- dents did not have true influ- enza, because it generally lasted only three or four days instead of the usual seven or eight, said Sinclair. Nationwide, however, thefe Richafd Washburn was a slight increase in the total number of type A influ- enza cases during that peri- od, he stated. " Mostly, the students were prescribed medicines such as Tylenol or cough medicines to alleviate the symptoms of the infection, though a few with upper res piratory problems were giv- en antibiotics, " Sinclair said Students were not the only ones encountering problems. Dr. Sinclair was himself infected, as was chemistry professor Cliff Hand. " The first day I spent in bed, I had hallucinations, " said Hand. " 1 didn ' t know where I was or really care. " " The worst thing was that I didn ' t feel like doing a thing, " Amy Kilpatrick, a journalism graduate stu- dent, said. " I kept feeling hot and then cold. It seemed as if I couldn ' t get enough to drink. Of course, they could only give me the usual medi- cine and advice at the health center: drink lots of fluids, eat well, and get lots of rest.

Beyond Denny Denny Chimes aren ' t really chimes at all It seemed as if class would go on forever, but then Denny Chimes rang three times, signaling that the end was near. Students uncon- sciously waited for the sound of the chimes, but most didn ' t realize that the sound they heard was not the real thing. Inside the Denny Chimes was a complex electronic carillon that imitated high bells weighing tons, much like an electronic organ imi- tates a pipe organ. Warren Hutton, professor of music, was caretaker and player of the Chimes since the carillon was acquired in 1966. Hutton said the mecha- nism inside Denny Chimes was originally chimes, which were long bars that were hit with a hammer. The chimes could not play a melody or tune, according to Hutton, but did signal the hour. But the original chimes were not always reli- able. " I was here in 1954 and they weren ' t working then, " Hutton said. " In 1966 when Frank Rose was president, the alumni donated money for a special project, " Hutton said. " And he thought this would be good for the mo- rale of students. " Hutton said he played the carillon himself on special occasions such as Home- coming, Christmas and Inde- pendence Day. He said stu- dents often wondered who lived in the " little house " and played the chimes. On those special occasions, he said, " I ' m the little man in here playing. " The carillon had an elec- tronic keyboard, but most music programs heard were created by roll music inside the machine. The first few phrases of the alma mater were programmed to play at 1 1 p.m. The carillon had five octaves and 61 notes, ac- cording to Hutton. He said the range was from the low- est C on the piano and up five octaves from there. " This is a very sophisti- cated system, " Hutton said. " Many churches in town have similar systems that play hymns, except this one is more sophisticated. " Five speakers amplified the sound of the carillon, ac- cording to Hutton. He said the sound of the chimes car- ried farther in wet weather. The direction of the wind also affected the sound, he added.

" Ladies ' Delight, " a group of five male dancers, per- formed several times at Papa Joe ' s, a downtown Tuscaloosa nightclub, much to the dismay of the more conservative segment of the community. The controver- sy prompted the city to con- sider an ordinance restrict- ing audience participation in the show, and Poole said he ' d fight for the toughest ordinances possible. " They can have their fun while they can, because we ' re go- ing to stop it sooner or later, " Poole said. Women who attended a March 30 performance by the group expressed dis- pleasure with Poole and the ministers who protested the return of the dancers.

The show brought in 500-1,000 girls each night, according to " Rocket Rod, " owner and originator of the five-year-old show. Rod said his group worked 80 hours and trav- eled 2,000 miles each week throughout the South. The troupe was chosen as the best male dance group in the South, and was named " cleanest and classiest. " " We are not strippers, " Rod said. " We are profes- sional male dancers. We were all taught by profes- sionals. " " Our show is a top class act, " Rod said. " We wear European bathing suits. We don ' t wear g-strings. We nev- er have and we never will. What you see here is noth- ing you wouldn ' t see on the beach. Or on Solid Gold, and that ' s on national televi- sion. " Rod said Rep. Poole would change his mind if he saw the show. " I think the major prob- lem is that he ' s never seen the show, " Rod said. " It ' s in good taste, it ' s very fun and very entertaining. We do nothing gross. " Poole said he ' d seen a vid- eotape of a previous perfor- mance by Rod ' s group. " It was the worst thing I ' ve ever seen, " he said. " Women sticking their hands in their European bathing suits ... " The rules of the show were that women could tip the dancers by putting dollar bills in the sides of the danc- er ' s bathing suits, but not the front or the back, ac- cording to Rod. Rod said the group often performed for charity at nursing homes, hospitals, and children ' s homes. " We don ' t strip, we just dance, " he said. He added that the group made consid- erable donations to Jerry ' s Kids. Rod, an Anniston native, was a former disc jockey. He had a degree in business from a Florida college. He said he didn ' t find it difficult to dance in front of hun- dreds of screaming women. " The more women there are, the easier it is. It ' s like football; when you ' re prac- ticing before the game you ' re nervous, but once you get there and hear all the screaming fans, everything ' s okay. " Rod said he had some- thing to fall back on when he could no longer dance. " But I want to do this while I ' m young and single. " Tony, 26, left a $30,000 job four years ago to dance with Ladies ' Delight. He had a degree in electrical design from the University of South Carolina and was from Spar- tanburg, South Carolina. Tony added that he had also taught ballroom dancing and runway modeling. " I feel more comfortable on that dance floor than I do right now, " Tony said. " It ' s charisma. But you have to have the professional train- ing. " I ' m going to do this as long as I can. Every year it gets better and better. I con- sider myself very, very for- tunate because not many people my age are (making a living) doing what they want to do, " he said. John, 20, had been danc- ing with Ladies ' Delight since May, when Rod saw him dancing at a club in Daytona Beach. " For the first month, I was scared to death, " he said. " But 1 got used to it. It ' s something even your moth- er can get used to. Just now, almost a year later, she ' s getting used to the idea. She is the last person I thought would — I was raised in a strong Catholic family — but now she asks me things like ' How much did you make tonight in tips? ' " No males were allowed in the club during the show, other than waiters hired es- pecially for the perfor- mance. John Colucci, a 21- year-old University student, waited tables at both Papa Joe ' s and Adam ' s, another local club that hosted a male dance group. " We get pinched a lot, " Colucci said. He added that the aggressive women " don ' t intimidate " him. " In that environment, it ' s expected, " he said. " It ' s business. Actually, it ' s kind of flattering ... an ego thing. " Colucci said the crowd at the March 30 performance was " tame " compared to previous audiences. " (Jsually we get our shirts taken off, " he said, adding that that didn ' t bother the waiters because they get more tips. " Older women tip better, " he said. " I hope they come back, " said one 37year-old house- wife after the show. " I en- joyed the night out. It ' s not often women get such a spe- cial treat in this town.

" 78 Student Life: Evening Of Dance t The chance to dance ' Evening Of Dance ' lets dancers get footloose The flash of color, the beat of a drum, and the sound of ap plause scored the opening of the University Theatre ' s Pro duction of An Evening of Dance. The production, a product of the work of three faculty members of the dance department and their students, for the first time included a piece performed by Danscape, a troupe from the University of Alabama in Birmingham in an effort to increase the stu- dents ' exposure to other types of dance. " Outside Inside After, " the first piece of the pro- gram, used percus- sion music that was improvised during the performance. " The musicians watched the dance many times before playing the music to get a feel for the dance, " said Lou Wall, director of the program. " We de- signed the dance and then decided to use the live music to add di- mension to the piece. " The sound made by a piece of paper created the setting for " Bits and Pieces. " serving to not only provide music for the piece but to also act as props for the dancers. The students did part of the choreogra phy, showing how paper could serve in different ways. " Most of us are in several dances, so we spend about three hours a night rehears- ing, as well as working in our dance classes to come up with a program, " Kathleen Howard, a performer in three of the pieces, said. The dancers must begin working with the instructors at the beginning to create a dance because " it really can ' t be put down on paper.

We first thought of using Copland, but after hearing some native Ameri- can folk music, we decided to use it instead. " Asked about her reasons for being in the program, Howard said, " I plan on dancing in a company and then later perhaps open a dance school. I ' ve been in touch with a lot of people, not just from here but from New Orleans and California, among other places. It real- ly adds a lot to our education. Besides, we get to show off what we ' ve been do- ing during the year, and we ' re very proud of that year- long effort. " — Stephen Lomax Rn hdi.l Vv.i hbum Coming out of a pirouette.

Mark Miller takes a photo of two aston ished children. Mlllen shot 20 rolls of film during his trip to Nicaragua. Stell Simonton A moving experience Graduate spends 18 days helping war-torn Nicaragua Most students like to travel right after they finish their college education. Mark Miller de- cided to travel, too. Only Miller did it a little different- ly than most others. He spent his vacation in Nicara- gua as part of a labor force organized to help stabilize the country ' s economy by working the harvest. Miller was in Nicaragua for 18 days, from Feb. 15 to Mar. 2. " I was out of school. I was at loose ends. I had a chance to spend three weeks in a foreign country for $500 — you take what you can, " he said. " We thought we were go- ing to be picking coffee beans, but we got down there and it was cotton. 1 had to go from Alabama to Nicaragua to pick cotton. " Miller said he worked about four to six hours a day on two different farms. " We started about five in the morning, there was no shade, and by noon it was about 90 degrees. I thought I was in pretty good shape. We had to drink about a quart of water every couple of hours. " They put us in a differ- ent field than the Nicara- guans. We would have just gotten in their way. They picked about 150 to 200 pounds (of cotton) a day, we could only pick about 30. " Miller said the Nicaraguans were getting paid about $7 for 100 pounds of cotton. He said he and the 39 oth er members of his group worked on two farms. He slept on bunks made of wooden boards with feed sacks draped over them. The Nicaraguans slept on feed sacks on the floor. Miller said the people in his group were very differ- ent. There were several peo- ple from the Northwest. Cali- fornia and Europe. " There was one guy there from New York that had originally lived in Puerto Rico, but he had to leave, he said it brought back too many bad memories. " Conditions on the farms are much better now (than several years ago). The peo- ple don ' t worry about get- ting shot. They used to find dead bodies in the fields. You could hear machine gun fire at night. They told us how to get down on the floor when we heard it, and to just stay there. If it got bad they ' d come and tell us where to go. " Miller said some of the people in his group got sick from the food — primarily rice, beans and tortillas. There was a McDonald ' s in Managua, he said, but they didn ' t have any of the McDonald ' s cups or bags since there was very little paper industry in the coun- try. He said drinks were served in plastic cups and takeout orders for drinks were put in plastic bags and the end was cut off to drink out of. " If you broke a glass in a restaurant, it would cost you more than the meal. " he added. " The people were real helpful. A lot of the trip was to show you around and to show you they (the Nicara- guans) didn ' t hate you — 1 would have hated me. " The buses are all con- verted school buses. On the buses you have to get on the front and get off the back. There is no door on the back and a guy stands back there to make sure no one gets on. The buses are real crowded. As soon as you get on the bus. you have to start weav- ing your way through the people to be at the back to get off. ' " One day 1 was trying to get off at my stop and there was this knot of tremen- dously fat people in my way and they couldn ' t move. I was trying to get through them. I was down like I was on all fours, and the bus driv- er was yelling ' Any more? ' and I was screaming back at him and at the people to move. Then the guy on the back sticks his arm out to me and 1 grabbed it and he pulled me through the peo- ple like an eel or something and swings me out of the bus and sets me down " Miller said he ' d like to go back. " I got back (to the (Jnited States) on Friday and started a new job in Atlanta on Monday. I had to fight the traffic and a new job. I want- ed to go back. There was no pressure there. If you were an hour late, it was okay, everything was an hour late. It cost about a dollar to go anywhere in the country. " 1 thought 1 knew what poverty was. There are some pretty poor places in Alabama, but these people have absolutely nothing. Not a thing in the world. They take nothing for grant- ed. When 1 went 1 was really primed to write about it. 1 took a lot of notes and shot about 20 rolls of film. But for about three weeks 1 couldn ' t even think about it. I went to a bar with a couple of friends when I got back and was telling them about it. " There were these little kids. They lived downtown in some buildings that had not been built back after the earthquake in 1972. They just lived there all alone. I had a few beers and I real- ized I was starting to cry. People were sitting all around throwing away mon- ey and watching MTV. I ' m still afraid of thinking about it too much. It was weird. Very weird and very much unnerving.

But the weather could not dampen the spirits of some 3,455 stu- dents as the class of 1983 filed into Memorial Coliseum for graduation ceremonies. Dr. Lewis M. Bascomb, vice president and chief sci- entist for IBM, told gradu- ates not to mistake high technology for an end in it- self in his commencement address during the 9 a.m. ceremonies. " The computer has changed contemporary life. We cannot do without it, but it is still only a tool. " Quoting Adam Smith in the book Paper Money, Bas- comb recalled " how an old friend used to say, in his af- fected, backwoodsy way: " A good dawg is wonnerful for huntin ' ; cant do without him, but you don ' t give the gun to the dawg. " The internationally re- nowned physicist felt that high technology ' s " true im- portance to our economy is not its own growth; it is the productivity -transforming power of these new tools in every walk of life. Indeed, a successful high tech econo- my will require that all jobs be performed in a smart, effi cient and fulfilling way. We must have high-tech laun- dries, barber shops and gro- cery stores, too. " " A high-tech society has to be a feeling, as well as a thinking, society. Americans must restore the balance off altruism and practical achievement in our personal goals, " Bascomb cautioned. " Altruism without achieve- ment is the path to unful- filled expectations. But the search for personal material security in the absence of the other elements of a hu- mane society is a false goal that leads to social conflict. " Once Dr. Joab Thomas, president of the University, had pronounced the stu- dents graduates, the tears and laughter sprang anew, as students went to their in dividual schools for the awarding of diplomas, pre- paring to face a new world of high-technology, changing times, and rapid growth and progress.

" I was happy and sad, ner- vous and confident, afraid and brave all at the same time, " the senior from Char- lotte, N.C., said. " I wondered what life had in store for me. " Allen said Dr. Marston told the 153rd graduating class to " find dreams, goals and opportunities for service above self as you enter a world likely to become more, not less complex. " Speaking at the 9 a.m. commencement exercises at Memorial Coliseum, Mar- ston reminded the class of 3.539 graduates that, " This is a day of well-deserved joy and pride and of great grati- tude. Yes, it comes at a time when the world is full of problems of considerable magnitude, but it is also a time full of remarkable op- portunities that we as indivi- duals and as people can ful- ly grasp only when viewed in light of moral and ethics. " The address touched on several issues relating to higher education. Marston, in his tenth year as president of the University of Florida, said that despite problems in today ' s world, he was encour- aged by some recent events.

" The combined efforts of the group resulted in a report that " neither group could have made in self-serving isolation. " Marston told the gradu- ates to treasure their associ- ation with " one of the great public universities of the land. " " The quality of any uni- versity is determined by the quality of the students, of the faculty and of the re- sources available to them, " he added. Marston ' s address preced- ed the conferring of doctoral and honorary degrees by UA president Dr. Joab Thomas.

Richard Washbu Student Life: Graduation 1984 89 Original city facelift City plans restoration of downtown area Although downtown Tuscaloosa didn ' t look it, the original city was having a facelift. The look of a deteriorating city would be changed to a new look of a thriving business district through the efforts of the Original City Revitalization Program. " Right now, most of the revitalization is in wiring and plumbing, " Eric Strong, pro- ject director, said, " things you can ' t see. " The Original City Revital- ization Program was putting $7 million into the original city of Tuscaloosa. The area was bounded by the Black Warrior River on the north. Queen City Avenue on the east, 15th Street on the south and 32nd Avenue on the west. The area existed from about the time T usca- loosa was incorporated as a city on Dec. 13, 1819, one day before Alabama was ad- mitted to the Gnion. " Our city concept of Tus caloosa is not to be a retail center, but to be a govern- mental and office district for the city, " Strong said. " We can ' t compete with the malls. " The first visible changes were to come in June when the streetscaping plans were to be put into action. Streets and sidewalks were to be re- paved. Medians with trees and grass were to be planted in the new streets over a two block area. New street lights modeled after those used during the turn of the cen- tury were to be put up. But the revitalization was just beginning. The long range plan for Tuscaloosa was to build a hotel and con- ference center to serve the West Alabama area. The city would buy the block of 24th Avenue and University Boulevard where Mr. Ho ' s Chinese Restaurant was to build the hotel conference center. " The building will not be taller than the First National Bank which has twelve sto- ries, " Evan Williams, com- munity planner, said. " " We don ' t want the structure to clash with the old-fashioned buildings. " " Merchants are trying to copy the malls to the point where the architecture is fighting each other, " Betsy Hayslip, executive director of the Heritage Commission of Tuscaloosa County, said. The Heritage Commission worked to have the original city entered in the National Register as a historic dis- trict. Each structure had to be researched and the archi- tecture had to be document- ed. The Commission then recommended to the state that the structure or area be designated a historic dis- trict. The government gave a 25% tax credit for the amount spent on actual re- habilitation costs of a pro- ject. " This would be an eco- nomically producing devel- opment because of the tax incentives involved, " Hays- lip said. $250,000 was put into the restoration of the Bama The- ater, one of the last 1920 ' s atmospheric theaters in the state. The Bama Theater sign was restored to its origi- nal look of bright red neon and screaming blue back- ground. " " Everybody says the sign is just the gaudiest thing they ' ve ever seen, " Williams said, " but that ' s the way the marquees looked during that period.

Boy, do we need them now Just as every closet has its skeletons, every town has its ghosts. And the University and Tuscaloosa were no exceptions. Fraternity houses, churches, bridges and class- rooms were all subjects of gruesome tales of the maca- bre and supernatural. One of the most interest- ing was narrated-and indeed believedby members of the Chi Phi fraternity. According to Todd Whi- senant, a Chi Phi active, the house on fraternity row was plagued by peculiar noises and unusual images. The supposed ghost, re- ferred to by Chi Phi mem- bers as LaDonna, originated in the old Chi Phi house on Thomas Street. According to fraternity legend, two members were playing with an Ouija board and decided to investigate a story they had been told about their house. The story said a man and his stepdaughter had lived in the house before the fraterni- ty ' s occupancy. One night. after a bitter argument, the man became enraged with the girl, raped her, then cut her to small pieces and buried her in the walls of the basement along with the knife. The fraternity brothers asked the Ouija board if the story was true. After show- ing " yes " on the board, it also responded that she was buried in the northwest cor- ner of the house. The Chi Phi brothers went to the designated corner, started digging, and found the knife. They supposedly tried to put the knife back, but the grave had been disturbed. It was said LaDonna would not rest until a member of the fraternity died a violent death. According to Chi Phi Mike Raney, a fraternity member was killed in a violent car crash in March of 1980. LaDonna moved to the new Chi Phi house several years ago, according to Whi- senant. During Hell Week, pledges were required to go to the old house and get a bucket of dirt from beneath the house. The bucket was acci- dentally spilled in the new house, and LaDonna ' s spirit came to reside there Farther across campus, a ghost was supposed to in- habit eerie Smith Hall. Several geography and ge- ology students maintained that the spirit of a former geography professor could still be heard lecturing after midnight. Footsteps had also been heard on the sec- ond floor stairway. " I would never go near Smith Hall after dark, " said Millie Watterson, a sopho- more geology major from Little Rock, Ark. " My broth- er went to school here in 1975 and he and his friends told me all about Smith Hall. I ' m not sure 1 believe the sto- ry, but I don ' t see any reason to take chances. " Woods Hall, near the Fer- guson Center, also had a midnight apparition. The building was once a men ' s dormitory, and ac- cording to campus legend, the dorm was once the site of an argument that resulted in a student ' s death. The story said two room- mates got into an argument over a girl and one stabbed the other in the heart. The ghost was supposed to roam the area around Woods and the old Quad seeking revenge on those who passed by. " I ' ve been in Woods very late, " said Lane Grisham, an art student. " 1 just don ' t be- lieve in ghosts. Besides, when you have a project due, there ' s not much you can do. 1 have to come here to sculpt so I can ' t let some fantasy disrupt my grades. ' " Well, I know I ' ve at least heard the ghost because I couldn ' t find what was mak- ing noise when I walked home one night, " Jake Wil- liams, a business major from Opp, said. Not far from campus, the Southside Baptist Church provided what was perhaps the area ' s most famous ghost story. Rirhdrd Washhurn Light fills the entranceway to the room where Catherine Drish hung herself after her father prevented her marriage to a dis- reputable Tuscaloosa man. A room formerly used as a Sunday school classroom at the Southside Baptist Church now stands empty, populated only be sunlight and dustmotes. Student Life: Ghosts 93 ES Ghostbusters The story of the old Drish house, now Southside Bap- tist, had numerous versions. According to " 13 Ala- bama Ghosts " by Katheryn Tucker Windham and Mar- garet Gillis Figh, Dr. John Drish built the original struc- ture in 1836. Drish fell down the steps and broke his neck soon after the completion of the house. It is said that ser- vants could hear the falter- ing footsteps and the doc- tor ' s agonized cry as he fell to his death resound through the house for many years. Mr. Drish ' s wife also haunted the house because a wish she made on her deathbed was not executed. Mrs. Drish had requested that the candles used during her husband ' s wake be placed around her casket. However, the candles could not be located, and though she was given a proper bur iai, her spirit still walks through the house searching for the funeral candles. Catherine, the Drish ' s daughter, later joined her mother and father in spook- ing the house. To her parent ' s disapprov- al, Catherine had fallen in love with a Union soldier. Mr. Drish drove the man from town to prevent a mar- riage, and Catherine lost her mind and hung herself in an upstairs bedroom. Catherine ' s spirit roamed the house looking for her lost lover. Another community story concerned the old Gyldwood Bridge just off University Boulevard past the strip. According to area ghost hunters, the bridge was called the " crying bridge " because a young girl tossed her baby on to the railroad tracks below when her lover jilted her. Some said the baby ' s faint cry could be heard late at night. Others maintained the mother could be seen walk ing the tracks on foggy M Richard Washburn ysterious dark corridors and narrow rooms, some as small as four feet wide, are com- mon throughout the musty loft of Southside Baptist Church.

Maxwell ' s crossing, near Moundville, had a similar heartbroken mother story. The mother was driving over one of the area ' s many narrow bridges when she saw a figure in the middle of the road. Swerving to avoid the image, her car left the road and crashed into a small stream. She was killed instantly. The baby was nev- er found. It was rumored that if one parked his car on the bridge at night, left a piece of can- dy on the windshield and wandered away from the car, the candy would be gone when he returned. A phantom also haunted a farmer ' s silo near Maxwell ' s Crossing. A slave, after being falsely accused of raping a local landowner ' s daughter during the Civil War, was beheaded near the silo. His spirit sup- posedly walked around the silo at night to avenge his unjust death. An image in a window at Tuscaloosa ' s Capital Park prompted another Civil War ghost legend. A woman waiting for her son to return from the war was said to sit and look out the upper left window of the old tavern in downtown Tus- caloosa. The woman ' s son was killed in action, but she re- fused to accept that he would never come home again. Her spirit, in the form of an image in the window, awaited his return forever. Though most of the sto- ries may not have been true, several of them were based on historical fact. But one thing was certain, sharing experiences of unusual noises or unnatural occur- ences always made a chill- ing evening of goosebumps and shivers. — Lynn Rollings t 94 Student Life: Ghosts The Queen City Bridge was the site of a murder in the early 1900 ' s when woman tossed her in- fant over the edge after her fiance left her.

" For all. the time was one of questioning, decision-making and exploring. Career choices, financial concerns, social rela- tionships, political ideals and religious beliefs were all exam- ined as each person grew and made plans for the future. But life wasn ' t completely serious. Going out on the town, playing a game of Triv- ial Pursuit, seeing a movie or spending a simple afternoon on the Quad smoothed out the rough edges. And individuality was the key. Whether greek or inde- pendent, or black or white, students were unified, but still distinctly distinguished. Working together as one giant unit, the goals, pursuits, thoughts, actions and feel- ings of some 15,000 students comprised a year of unparal- lel outreach and discovery — a year of taking the wraps off.

" Peabody said he was an ex- pert on the sport of dryer-rid- ing. " It ' s not a good idea to shut the door, " he warned. " Then you can ' t stop. Have someone hold the button in. Also, if you ' ve got a weak stomach, don ' t eat before you do it. " The dryer daredevil added that upper body strength is beneficial. " Otherwise, you ' ll let go and fall on your head and really get tossed around. That ' s not good.

Thunderstorm warning. These words became familiar in the spring of 1984; familiar, but never comfortable. The tornadoes seemed to oc- cur more often than normal in Alabama, whipping through trailer parks, bringing down trees and scaring a lot of peo- ple. Dick Pierce, director of emer- gency management in the county, said this spring was an especially active one for torna- does. Between April 26 and May 9, 303 tornadoes swept through the country. In Tuscaloosa County before Feb. 1, there were 10 tornado watches, three tornado warn ings. one severe thunderstorm watch and three severe thun- derstorm warnings. " This has been the biggest outbreak of tornadoes in years, " Pierce said. " There ' s no rhyme or reason for it. " A watch is " nothing more than atmospheric conditions being favorable for tornadoes or severe thunderstorms, " Pierce said. A warning is a visu- al sighting of a tornado or thun- derstorm or their detection on radar, he added. Mo major damage occured in the county. Pierce said, with most damage being falling trees, damaged power lines and blown off roof tiles. " There have been a little flash floodings with the storms, " Pierce said. A tornado is " a column of air with circular motions moving from 100-300 miles per hour, " according to Pierce. A tornado occurs when warm moist air from the gulf meets a cold front from the north. Pierce said. The tornado season runs from March through May normally, he said. " It may run a little longer this spring, " he said. " We ' re still having cold air from the north. " " I ignore those warnings, " Jeff Bleeker, a freshman from Greeneville, said. " Nothing ever, ever becomes of them, never. I just don ' t waste my time worrying about it.

She said that she received " everyth- ing from porno to business cards to books on how to man- age your money. " Some days she found slips in her post of- fice box to get the rest of her mail from the desk because there wasn ' t enough room for it all in her box.

Inspection for the fiber, which had been linked with lung cancer and other respira- tory ailments, was conducted in late September. About a month later. University Hous- ing presented a master-plan for asbestos removal to University President Joab Thomas. The fifth floor of Paty Hall was the first on the priority list because it contained the most hazardous concentration of the fiber, according to a survey conducted by Safe State Test- ing Organization. Residents moved before Christmas break, most to Saf- fold Hall, so the clean-up could begin. After the fifth floor was finished, the asbestos was re- moved from the second floor of Paty during the summer. " It ' s gone real smoothly, " Dan Goeres, second floor R.A. at Paty, said. Goeres added that the fifth and second floors were refurbished and ready for occu- pation. The two floors received new light fixtures, carpeting and windows. The master plan called for the asbestos to be removed from all of Paty first, then from the other affected residence halls and then from any aca- demic buildings. University officials informed Union Programs that no more concerts could be held at Me- morial Coliseum until the as- bestos was removed. The sound at the Lionel Richie Con- cert loosened asbestos fibers, according to Union Programs Director Robert Hoelscher. It may be a long while before a concert is held at the colise um, because the residence halls and academic buildings have a higher priority, Hoelscher said. " I didn ' t mind moving, " dorm resident Paul Garrison said. " Asbestos is dan- gerous. I ' m glad to have it re- moved. I feel safer. " D — Susan Cullen Discarded panels. Asbestos-coated panels from the fifth floor of Paty Hall await removal by the maintenance department. Paty was the first building to have asbestos re- moved, with other residence halls to follow.

Both had footprint ceremonies to honor special people. Walter Lewis, quarterback for the football team, and Ran- dy Edwards, defensive tackle, placed their hands and feet in wet cement at the foot of Den- ny Chimes during an April cere- mony. The tradition began in 1947 with Harry Gilmer, the most outstanding player, and John Wozniak. the captain of the 1947 team, according to Wayne Atchison, the sports in- formation director of the Clni- versity. " It changed from coach to coach over the years, " Atchi- son said, " but when Coach Bry- ant came to the University, he had the players vote for the team captains at the end of the season. " Randy Edwards, a senior in finance from Marietta, Ga., was honored to be voted co-captain with Walter Lewis. " It was a pleasant surprise. " Edwards said. " All the seniors earned the respect of the team but it was a real honor to be consid- ered along with Lewis as the co- captain. " " It didn ' t really hit me how important it was until I got out there. " he said. " I saw names like Coach Perkins. Joe Ma- math and Billy Neighbors. They were all players I used to follow in Alabama football when I was little. " I remember Coach Bryant saying what great players and great leaders they were and I was just very proud that I was included. " Edwards signed with the Se- attle Seahawks. an MFL foot- ball team, during the draft.

The concept of the paper be- gan with Allen Meuharth of the Gannett newspaper chain. He " felt that the time was right " for a comprehensive national newspaper, Robert Dubill, man- aging editor of the news section of USA Today, said. The paper was so successful that a task force was studying an idea for a world edition to be distributed in Europe and Asia. Dubill said. Circulation was up to 1 ,4 million, which was above projections, he added. Dubill said the packaging of the paper — the color and graphics — made it easy to read and attractive to readers. He said USA Today tried to " give an overview of practical- ly every news story of the day. plus depth.

" I use Estee Lauder makeup because it ' s a quality product that lasts longer, " Maggie Hennessey, a freshman from Tuscaloosa, said. " It ' s really worth the extra price. " " Most girls buy Estee Lauder and Clinique makeup, " Allison Norton, a junior in speech pa- thology, who sells cosmetics at Parisian, said. " Estee Lauder is the glamourous makeup and Clinique has a full skin care treatment that is simple and not too expensive. " The skin care products were a big sales item for the cosmet- ics companies. After Clinique spread their treatment through the department stores since 1968, many companies tried to emulate their success. Estee Lauder had a beauty treatment, but was more for an older age group. One group that would have been traditionally slighted in the makeup and skin treatment area was the male sex. Clinique began a full line of products for men in 1972, according to Cin- dy Clay, a graduate student in education, and employee of Parisian. " You ' d be surprised how many guys buy the Clinique products for men, too, " Norton said. " They are so vain.

Bear memorabilia descended upon Tuscaloosa and all of Alabama since the legendary coach ' s death in Jan- uary 1983. Clayton Carper, owner of Bama Fever, a store in Univer- sity Mall, said that through last Christmas, sales of Bear me- mentos were tremendous. " We couldn ' t keep them in stock, " he said. Sales have slowed a bit since then, he added, but he still sold 2-3 Bear pictures every week and about the same number of battery operated clocks with the coach ' s picture on them. Sales were down to one-fourth or one-fifth from last fall, he said. Carper said he sold 20 clocks in the shape of the state of Ala- bama with Bryant ' s picture on them to a local company who gave them to visitors from all over the U.S. Carper said that he didn ' t be- lieve the memorabilia cheap- ened the coach ' s memory. " These are people who adore the man. He was an important part of their life. They need something to remember him by. " The bestselling Bear me- mento was a picture called " The Last Game " of Coach Bryant at the Liberty Bowl, Carper said. Why? " Because that ' s the last thing they re- member of him, " Carper said. " That was the last time they saw him. " Most people spent between $20 and $30 for a Bear memen- to, Carper said, although he has sold " a number " of $200 pic- tures. Between 60-70% of the purchases were gifts, he said. " In a lot of ways, it ' s good, " John Bolus, a senior from Bir- mingham, said. " People want some way to remember Coach Bryant. But when it gets past a certain point, you start to see his image commercialized and there ' s no reason for that, real- ly.

Just for the record, Ton- to ' s horse was " Scout, " and 007 means " license to kill. " Trivial Pursuit swept the country, .with people lining up in toy stores to buy the game. Several versions existed, in- cluding one for the Baby Boom generation and an all sports version, but the most popular version was the " original " one. There were six categories in the first version: arts and litera- ture, sports and leisure, enter- tainment, science and nature. history and geography. The set sold for around $35, according to Tom Aureden, manager of Spencer ' s in University Mall. Aureden ' s store received its first shipment of the game in late April, and the nine games were sold in three days. " I think the main reason it became so popular was be- cause of the story on 20 20 about it, " Aureden said. " There ' s also a lot of trivia buffs around. " The game was even more popular in larger cities. People waited in line for hours to get a game when a shipment arrived, and stores couldn ' t keep it in stock, despite the price. CW Editor Ed Howard first played the game in April, when News Editor Dan Condra bought a set. Howard said his best category was art and Lit- erature.

Suddenly, you and your roommate look up at each oth- er at the same time with a gleam in your eyes and a rum- ble in your stomachs. There ' s Dnly one thing to do. Order a pizza. Pizza was the American col- legiate sustenance. If you asked 100 students to define college, odds were the words " pizza, " " beer, " and perhaps " education " would be the three most common words used. Lisa Mullinax, a junior in of fice management from Jasper, said she and her roommates or- dered pizza during exam week in May. " We got the biggest Canadian bacon and pepperoni pizza from Bama-Bino ' s at 2:30 in the morning. " she said. Fran Viselli, owner and founder of Bama-Bino, said he sold 250,000 pizzas every year. At least one-third of those were sold to University students, he said. Why was pizza so popular among University students? " Pizza is still considered the number one fast food, " Viselli said. " But if you think about it, it contains all the food groups — fruit, meat, cheeses, bread. " Viselli said that the cheap cost and delivery are the big gest factors among college stu- dents, though. " If four people are eating a pizza, it ' s cheaper than a hamburger, " he said. " It ' s the cost factor students look at more than anything else " Kendall Nutt, a senior from Hope Hull in communicative disorders, said he ordered his last pizza of the semester dur- ing finals week at four a.m. " " We were studying for a biol- ogy final, " Nutt said. " " We or- dered a 16-inch pepperoni and sausage pizza from Bama- Bino " s. Bama-Bino is the Clni- versity " s pizza parlor. Their piz- za is the best.

D O College Can Be A Time Of Questioning Sally (a ficticious name) went to church every Sunday while growing up. The first sun day at the (Jniversity arrived. Did she go? Most students from Sally ' s sort of background didn ' t, ac- cording to Father Fallon of St. Francis Catholic Student Cen- ter. " Many students go through a time of questioning, " Fallon said. He said it was often ex- pected by the family to go ev- ery Sunday, and being away at school was a good opportunity to examine one ' s beliefs. " At home they go through the motions sometimes, " Fal- lon said. " Questioning is often healthy — a time to examine oneself. " Fallon said students who did continue to go to church every Sunday after they got to col- lege didn ' t fit any particular mold. " Each person is unique, " he said. " Some maybe don ' t go through that period, or they went through it in high school. Sometimes they don ' t go through it until after they get out of college. " A campus ministry differed from normal parishes in that it dealt with younger people, and they showed more flexibility than some in a community par- ish, Fallon said. " The campus ministry is a ministry of friendship, " Fallon said. " To share sorrows and celebrate new accomplish- ments. " Johnny Dancy, a freshman in hospital administration, said he attended church regularly since he entered college. " I was raised in the church, " Dancy said. " " I like going, to learn more about God ' s work, and to fellowship with other Christians. " D — Susan Cullen Afternoon devotional. Sitting on the steps of the main li- brary.

" The University instituted a new curriculum designed to give students " certain skills and concepts to think intelli- gently about the world around them, " giving students a broader view than would be provided in the narrow confines of their major. According to the Core Cur- riculum Supplement furnished to freshmen, " the purpose of the core curriculum is not to return to the past, but rather to establish a balance among le- gitimate interests in the present so that professional education, general education, and freedom for electives are balanced in proportions that the University community deems appropri- ate. " To some students, what the University deemed appropriate was not what they deemed ap- propriate. " I think that a lot of the courses that are now required are irrelevant to my major at the University. I don ' t feel that I will ever have to rely on geogra- phy or biology in my account- ing major, " Jeff Gray of Homewood said. Others were not bothered by the requirements. " It has not affected my major because in computer science you are basi- cally required to take most of the things the core requires, " said Laura Francis Schomberg, who elected to take computer science through the College of Arts and Sciences. " However, if I had chosen to be in comput- er science in the School of Engi- neering or C BA, I would have been overloaded with classes. " Students were required to take courses in advanced com- position, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, mathemat- ical principles, laboratory sci- ences, and two semesters of a foreign or computer language. The language requirement caused the most problems for students. Often those in com- puter science were forced to go to the computer center late at night in order to find an open terminal. " There were nights when I had to go to the center at two or three in the morning to find a place to work, " Elizabeth Den- ham said. On the whole, students who entered the University before the implementation of the core were not concerned with it. For some it was a headache, for others just another set of rules to follow, but for ail, the core served to bring a little spice to their lives and a chance for expanded education development.

Joe Barger, owner of the Morthport restaurant, said he was not sure how long it had been around, estimating " about 50 years, but I really don ' t know. " Why was City Cafe so popu- lar among University students? " Well, " Barger said, " they seem to like vegetables, and that ' s what we serve. " Vegetables, and a whole lot more. City Cafe specialized in home-style cooking. Customers had a choice of six meats and 10 or 12 vegetables. Barger said. A regular plate offered the dinner one of the six meats and three or four vegetables, he ad- ded. All this sold for only S2.40. City Cafe regular Karl Fattig, a junior majoring in French and German, said he dined at the restaurant " probably once a week. " " The nice thing about City Cafe is the later you go, the more food you get, " Fattig said. He said he liked the res- taurant because " it ' s like home. You get it quick and it ' s home-cooked. It ' s plain and simple. You ' re not paying for the service, but that ' s certainly good, too.

Hard to be- lieve, but it was true. The food was yogurt and a restaurant, The Yogurt Place, opened in December offering more than the regular fast-food fare — different flavors of yo- gurt and toppings and yogurt sundaes. " Yogurt is an all-natural health food that does relieve tension and stress, has no su- gar as an ingredient and only has 37 calories per ounce, " Rhonda King, manager of The Yogurt Place, said, " and it tastes great, too. " Each day four different fla- vors were offered to create a variety for customers. Flavors of the yogurt ranged from basic vanilla to green pistachio. Toppings for the different fla- vors included chopped walnuts and pecans, strawberries and raspberries. " Yogurt is really a fun food. Everybody comes in in a good mood, " Petra Klemmack, a freshman from Tuscaloosa, who also worked at The Yogurt Place, said. " It ' s really a nice atmosphere and we have a great variation of toppings to offer. " For some yogurt lovers, it took convincing at first that the yogurt really tasted good. " I thought it was going to be hard to work here, because I never liked yogurt, " King said. " But after I tasted it I changed my mind. This yogurt tastes as good if not better than ice cream. In some cases you can ' t tell the difference. " " The yogurt we sell is differ- ent from that sold in grocery stores in the way we produce it, " she said. According to King, The Yo- gurt Place buys a liquified form of yogurt and freezes it in a special machine. The yogurt is of a better quality and consis- tency then. The Yogurt Place was the first store of its kind in Tusca- loosa. The owner, Bruce McAI- phin, planned to build others in other college towns. There was a demand for a healthy but ice cream-like product in these areas. McAlphin also planned to create a yogurt-slush drink for a cool drink in the hot sum- mer months.

" Some days we run as high as 10 vehicles, " he said. Gregg said the CI.P. ' s only wheel lock unregisterd cars that receive three parking tick- ets. " We don ' t wheel lock cars that are registered, " he said. The unfortunate owner had to go to Gorgas Hall, where the police station was located, and register his car before the wheel lock was removed, ac- cording to Gregg. If a wheel lock was placed on a car in the morning and the owner didn ' t show up by 3 p.m., his car was towed, Gregg said. Greg Tyson, a junior from Selma, said he knew exactly where his car was when he couldn ' t find it in the Ferguson parking lot. " Yeah, I knew where it was, " Tyson said. " I ' d gotten two tickets and I kept putting off getting my parking sticker. I was just praying they wouldn ' t tow it. Oh well, I guess it was bound to happen.

Roommates Can Be Either Friend Or Foe They may have come in pairs, but they weren ' t neces sarily two of a kind. " They " were roommates, a thing most students encountered at some time during their years at the University. Some people were lucky and found some one they could live with (and who could live with them) without going through several other roomates first. But many students wer- en ' t so lucky. " I ' ve had five roommates in the three years I ' ve been at the University, " Bonnie Sanders, a broadcasting student, said. " I think my worst roommate was the one who poured a pitcher of water on my desk for no real reason. " " He liked to bring girls in the room without asking me first, " Scott Rupp complained. " That usually meant that 1 would not get to go to bed until very late, and I had to get up early. " A complaint many students had about their roommates was their choice in music — or its volume. " 1 didn ' t really mind that he played rock all the time, but usually I could hear it in the other halls of the floor at Paty, let alone in the room, " said Kurt Hulme, a senior from Montgomery. " Classical! That ' s about all she ever played! I think it would be impossible to get her to listen to anything else, " Bar- bara Butcher said of her music major roommate. " Somehow I just don ' t think I could be as perfect as he want- ed me to be, " said Richard Ben- son. " It seemed like I was al- ways doing something too loud, even turning a page in my book. It really got to me that there was a double standard in his ideas about our behavior — he could do what he wanted, but 1 could not. " Tom Nikodem, a sophomore in business, said his roommate " was drunk when I came home from the Air Force Ball and tried to get me to order a pizza with him, but I had to go out. He got all mad and ordered one anyways. When I came back home. I found him asleep — on top of his pizza, with one of the Cokes spilled all over the bed. " Some students even had good roommates. " Briann and I have been roommates since I came here, " sophomore Beth Owings said. " We get along ex- tremely well, which makes us lucky, I suppose. " They wore your clothes, messed up your desk, read your mail; they didn ' t speak to you, or talked too much; or they were just plain different. But they were a neccesary evil for most students, and with the right amount of work, a little understanding, a lot of toler- ance and mammoth doses of luck, a roommate could even become a friend.

The Bama Theater served the Tuscaloosa community from the 20 ' s. For the present, the theater was used by the Tuscaloosa Community Play- ers for their productions of plays and musicals. Clniversity groups used the Bama Theater for concerts, speakers and beauty pageants. The City Revitalization Pro- gram of Tuscaloosa donated money for the renovation of the Bama Theater. " The theater will be restored to its original look as an atmo- spheric theater of the 20 ' s, " Evan Williams, community planner of Tuscaloosa, said. " We ' ve already put $250,000 into the restoration of the build- ing. According to Williams, the main visible result of the ren- ovation was the Bama Theater marquee. The theater originally had a bright red neon sign that said " Bama " and a blue back- ground with white lights flash- ing. The exterior of the theater was restored to its look with the new sign. " It looks like it did originally, ' Williams said.

Bill Sponsor Sen. Chip Bailey attempted to bring the bill up for consideration twice during the last week of the session, but was thwarted each time. He said it would be " hopeless at this point " to introduce the measure. " It would be an exercise in futility, " Bailey said. " All the Senate would do would be to adjourn. We ' ll try again next year. " The Senate eventually decid- ed to vote to adjourn without considering the proposal. " It will be introduced again next year, but it won ' t pass, " Bill Whatley, a third-year law student who was present at the session in Montgomery said. " Now is not the time to push this thing through. " Whatley said that since Mothers Against Drunk Driving succeeded in getting DUI laws passed, rais- ing the drinking age would be too much at once. " They ' re fixing to see a se- vere backlash if they ' re not careful. There are going to be a lot of people without licenses; fine upstanding citizens, not drunks. And they ' re going to alienate young people, too. " Whatley said he didn ' t think the bill would do the job its pro- ponents believe it will. " If teenagers want to drink bad enough, they ' ll get it any way they can, which is very dangerous. " " It wouldn ' t stop drinking, " said Chip Seizmore, a freshmen from Gadsden. " People will drink, no matter what. Especially college kids. " — Susan Cullen Checking up.

People: Drinking Age 139 n Students Work It Out To Stay In Shape The fitness fad continued in 1984, with many people oh sessed with getting in shape, while others just " played " at it. One thing was for sure: Ameri- cans were much more aware than they were 10 years ago about the shape their bodies were in. Scott Holcombe, a senior in business from Montgomery and manager of 21st Century Health Spa in Bama Mall, said exercise was " very important for your health. And it makes you feel good about yourself. It ' s a must. " Holcombe said only about 10 percent of 21st Century ' s clien tele were University students. He said he thought most stu- dents stayed in shape by run- ning or working out at the Rec Center. Holcombe said a diet and ex- ercise combination was the most effective way to get in shape. " All you ' ve got to do is starve yourself to get skinny, " he said. " You ' ve got to eat a bal- anced diet. Being overweight is unhealthy, but being under- weight is not healthy, either. There ' s a big difference be- tween being skinny and being in shape. " Gary Brown, a senior in New College, said it was " vital that a student be in great shape, not just good shape, but great shape.

As of April 5, the University had received over 400 more ap- plications than last year. " These (application figures) are the first positive signals we ' ve had in a couple of years, " Thomas Davis, student director, said in April. " I ' m ex- cited and very confident — much more so than I was just two months ago. " Davis said that applicants seemed to be better students this year, because they were denying admission to fewer de- spite the stricter admission standards. The University accepted 3,492 applicants in 1983 and as of April 5, the school had ac- cepted 4,108. Davis said the improved reputation of the University and the uplift in the economy, as well as a better recruitment program begun in the fall 1983, increased enrollment. " We ' ve been telling every- body how good we were, but no one has believed it, " he said. " But now people are starting to believe because of our consis- tent studies toward quality. " Davis said the school ' s core curriculum, higher admission standards and recent good pub- licity about the University ' s partnership with General Mo- tors all helped to improve the University ' s reputation. " I ' ve been incredibly pleased and impressed with the support we ' re getting from students, faculty and alumni. Their sup- port is definitely a large factor behind our expanding applica- tions, and increased enroll- ment, " Davis said.

" With the coming of warm weather and bright sunshine in the spring, heavy coats and long pants gave way to tanl tops and shorts as students greasedup, laid out and tried to get a tan. While a rich, healthy glow was the optimal end result, red parched and peeling skin was of ten times the outcome. " The first time I lay out ev- ery year I burn, " said Elizabeth Minn, a freshman from Bir- mingham. " After the first time I ' m okay, but I have to put up with a lot of burning and peel- ing. I dread it because it usually happens during spring break while I ' m trying to rest at the beach. " While " laying out " was the natural way to get a tan, the impatient sometimes spent money instead of time to get their tans. Tuscaloosa ' s three tanning salons provided a synthetic al- ternative to the pains of soak- ing up the rays naturally. While some actually enjoyed laying out, there was also plea- sure in observation of the tan- ning process. " It ' s nice to drive behind Tutwiler on a warm spring afternoon, " said Ed Howard, a junior in journalism from Bir- mingham. " The view is terrif- ic.

Lebanon. 239 servicemen died when terrorists drove a truck containing two tons of explo- sives into the four-story Marine compound and detonated the contents, commanding student attention during a school year which saw months of world un- rest. Families waited days for news of survivors. One family learned their son was alive as they watched the live reports on Cable Mews Network. The parents watched their son wave " to the camera and say " Hi. Mom! " After the bombing, Ameri- cans questioned President Ron- ald Reagan ' s ideas on military- presence in foreign countries. Troops were stationed in Beirut to act as an intermediary dur- ing the war between Israel and Lebanon. In October Reagan also sent 6.000 soldiers to invade the country of Grenada to prevent a " a brutal group of leftist thugs " from seizing power and to restore democracy. Over 20 American medical students studying in Grenada were trapped in a dorm while war raged in the streets. A short-wave radio operator in Huntsville received messages from the students and contact- ed officials. Eventually the stu- dents were rescued and brought safely back to Amer- The Americans were suc- cessful in this conflict and most of the troops returned within a week after the take over. 1.200 Marines stayed in Grenada to restore the country to its status before the war.

A local Soviet military command- er was suspected as " just fol- lowing orders " to intercept any craft that entered Soviet air space. The United States and sever- al other nations banned Soviet air planes from landing in their airports as a measure against the Soviets ' action.

McNiff, a Massachusetts na- tive, studied Chinese and want- ed to continue his studies in China. The Catholic Student Center held services in McMiff ' s mem- ory after his presence on the plane had been confirmed. The Rev. John Fallon presided over the ceremony.

ABC aired The Day After " as an idea of what would happen after a nuclear war occurred. After " The Day After " aired, experts in foreign affairs and science discussed the movie ' s implications and what would actually happen. Carl Sagan, famous scientist and author, said the film did not show the reality of a nuclear war, for if there was a nuclear war of that magnitude, there would be no sunlight, sub-zero temperatures and snow caused by the parti- cles of debris falling back to earth None of these conditions were shown in the movie.

" I think the biggest parking problem is along Magnolia Drive and the sorority row area. " SGA President Ray Pate said. " This was confirmed by Bartholomew Consultants, an outside, unbiased consulting firm. " Pate said he was still waiting for the complete results from the firm, but " from what we understand, there is a strong possibility that they will recom- mend a parking deck behind Old Union and the student ser- vices building. " The SGA would push for its construction if it was financial- ly feasible. Pate said. He said the results of a Capstone Poll of students said that two-thirds of students surveyed were willing to raise parking sticker fees to build the parking deck. In the same survey, three-fourths of those surveyed were dissatis- fied with the number of parking spaces on campus. " If for some reason we cant do it, we ' ll push for construc- tion of the Barnwell parking lot, " Pate said. " I think extra parking is nec- essary along Magnolia Drive. " Jeff Bailey, a freshman in elec- trical engineering, said. " But I believe a lot of times, people are lazy and won ' t park in the lots behind the biology building or ten Hoor. " — Susan Cullen The opposite problem. Although most parking lots are filled to over flowing, the new lot behind the biology building is never filled, as Mark Williams, a senior from Ft. Wayne.

Although rent for apart- ments went up to $300 in the Tuscaloosa area, students dou- bled and sometimes tripled up to escape the confines of the campus. " I had to get out, " said Ray- mond Johnson, junior from Tampa, Fla. " It was fine as a freshman. You ' re unsure of yourself anyway, you need some structure to meet friends and learn your way around. But it ' s not necessary once you ' re established. " Leaving the dorms meant as- suming new responsibility for upkeep of residences as a trade-off for privacy, which sometimes could be a problem. " My roomates in my first apartment were very abusive and destructive in our apart- ment, " one senior said. " We had to pay a $150 security de- posit when we moved in. When we moved out, the apartment was such a mess that we not only lost the deposit, the land- lords wanted us to pay more. I know it needed a new paint job and new carpet. There were even cigarette burns in the car- pet. He was so furious. We moved and never went back. He never did anything, but he could have if he had known where we were. " But although students had a somewhat negative image in the eyes of landlords, some landlords were " a pain in the neck, " according to one junior from Gadsden. " I lived in a pretty nice apartment complex, " the ju- nior said, " but maintenance was more than just terrible. One morning water began to flow in by the gallon from my upstairs neighbors ' toilet, shower, whatever, I don ' t even know. The water spilled on the floor and seeped out into my living room and bedroom. It took them three days to come out and fix it. — Clay Brooks and Vivian Del mar Amy Kilpaln a u CO I- D " O C D (0 CO Belly Saunders 84 Vernita Saudners 84 Cindy Savage 84 Darrick Savage 87 Rene Savelis 86 M Akle Sawada 85 Lynn Sawyer 85 ATA Maurice Sawyer 86 Susan Sayles 87 HB Monica Scarbrough 86AAn Stuart Schablow 84 AX Beth Schaffer 84 Michael Scherb 84 Jamie Schmidt 85 S E John Schmidt 84 John Schmidt 85 Ben Robert Schmidt 64 Timothy Schmitt 64 Dawn Scholl 87 AOIl Laura Schomberg 87 AHA Terry Schrimscher 87 X«l Aimee Schulman 86 iiAT Barry Schultz 87 ZBT Ray Schulti 85 ATii Jennifer Schuiz 84 AZ Jack Schutzbach 86 Julie Schutiback 85 ZTA Elissa Schwartz 86 AHA Michael Schwartz 84 A.XA Suzy Schwarz 86 rCAT James Schweer 87 WILIiam Schweer 84 Don Scivley 84 KI Stephen Sclafani 87 X Ann Scott 84 David Scott 87 ATA Denise Scott 85 Donna Scott 84 Keith Scott 85 Lisa Scott 85 flB Melinda Scott 85 Tammala Scott 85 Wanda Scott 84 Gina Maree Scoville 84 X9 Joe Scrip 84 160 People: Apartments l AetIT««TSl(KaKCHXiI Taking it home.

Magni said the big yellow bird was meant to attract chil- dren. " We sometimes send him to elementary schools, and he ' s done a few charity functions, " Magni said. " We try to involve him in anything to do with chil- dren. " Magni said the chicken had no name. " He ' s the Bojangle ' s chick- en, " Magni said. " He ' s just our chicken.

" Some of my employees don ' t like to do it at all. " Magni said he thoroughly en- joyed playing the chicken. " It ' s awfully hot in that suit, though, " he said. The chick- en ' s role is to stand near the road and dance and wave at the children. " There ' s a thing in his ear with a radio playing mu- sic, " he said.

Sometimes it was one nut butter, to name a few. of those fancy air poppers, but, Steve Copeland, owner and more often, it was a regular old popcorn popper, slightly tat tered and usually a little greasy. Popcorn ranked second only to pizza as a late-night colle- giate snack. Its popularity grew so much that a franchise of popcorn stores that sold 32 dif- ferent flavors of the snack be- gan. The Corn Popper arrived in University Mall in November of 1983 with flavors like butter rum, pina colada. chocolate, taco, sour cream and onion. manager of the store, said the most popular flavor was cara- mel and the least popular was either mint or rootbeer. " We still sell a good bit of plain popcorn, though, " Cope- land said. Copeland said a large portion of his customers were Universi- ty students, and they like it be- cause it was " something new, and the prices are reasonable " " People like popcorn, " he said. " Once you expose the customer to the different fla- vors, they like them, but the popcorn sells itself. " Mark Stewart, a senior in fi- nance from Trussville, said he liked to eat plain popcorn with a medium amount of butter and lots of salt while watching a late show on television. Why popcorn? " It ' s something to sit and eat, " Stewart said. " And it ' s better than potato chips. " " I got my first taste of a dif- ferent popcorn at work one day, " Mary Stultz, a senior business administration major, said. " It was peanut butter and it was real good.

The Pratt Family Cemetary, established just twenty years after Alabama gained state- hood, is dwarfed by the huge round biology building, remain- ing unnoticed — its story for- gotten. The cemetary was begun in 1839 after the death of a Uni- versity student made the board of trustees aware that, in a day of poor transportation and inad- equate embalming processes, a University burial ground was a necessity. The trustees decided that the student should be buried on campus instead of sent home and designed the ce- metary. The group appropriat- ed $100 for a metal fence to surround the grounds. After the burial of several students, the small plot be- came a private burial ground for the Pratt family of Tusca- loosa. In 1854, the board of trustees gave the family the title to a plot 42 feet wide and 28 feet long and relinquished its claim on the plot. In 1971, when construction began on the biology building, the plot was left untouched, bordered by an ornate cast iron fence to protect the Pratt fam- ily ' s privacy.

Baier took office June 4 and began work on his goal to im- prove University residence halls. " I would like to have the best housing in the country, " Baier said shortly after his se- lection. " Then when students decide to come to the University of Alabama, they ' ll know that in addition to a quality faculty and good academic faculties, " Baier said, " it ' s going to be a great opportunity to live in those residence halls for a year or two years, however long they want to live there. " Baier said the most obvious problem that student affairs has responsibility for is Hous ing. " Right now I don ' t blame stu- dents for not wanting to live in our residence halls, because some of them are not very good, the faculties are not very clean, they ' re not well man- aged, they ' re not a good hous- ing alternative. " Baier also said the greek sys- tem needs work. " We ' re probably going to es- tablish an identifiable greek af- fairs unit somewhere within the Campus Activities area, and we ' ll probably beef up the num- ber of people we have working with them, " he said. " I don ' t feel that fraternity or sorority living is necessarily de- trimentel or bad, " he said. " But I think that perhaps we ' ve got some of the same problems go- ing on in our greek houses as we have in our residence halls. " D _ Susan Cullen Welcome aboard. On his first day in office.

Republic airlines closed its doors, packed up and moved its planes to Indianapolis on May 31, according to Susan Laskowski, Republic station agent. " The company feels it would be more profitable to move the two DC-9s and the Corvair air- planes servicing this area to In- dianapolis, " Laskowski said. " With the three planes here, we served about 40 people a day. " Republic Airlines opened their offices in Tuscaloosa a year and a half ago with flights to Atlanta, Memphis and the Golden Triangle (Columbus, West Point and Starkville, Miss). " Our busiest time was the morning flight to Atlanta, " Las- kowski said, " and the busiest seasons were during Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays and spring vacation servicing the college students. " The last flight of Republic didn ' t have a big fanfare or fare- well from the city of Tusca- loosa. The employees just had a quiet picnic by the terminal two days before final depar- ture. A regional airline. Sunbelt Airlines, and two commuter services replaced the national airline. The two airlines allowed Tuscaloosa passengers to make connections with major airlines in Memphis and Atlan- ta and to most major cities, na- tionally and internationally. □ — Tara Askew 170 PeoDle: Republic Airlines B Jissmsf s;-j ' .

For Just $1, Pitcher Show Offers Flicks, Suds Just what could be better than sitting in an easy chair watching a movie on television and having food and drinks by your side? Watching a movie on a big screen and having a waitress serve you the food and drinks. " People can wait a little long- er for a first-run movie and pay a lower price — just a dollar — and have a better atmosphere to relax in if they come to the Pitcher Show, " Jeff Burson, manager of the theater, said. The " beer " theater served beer, wine, colas, pizza, deli sandwiches and nachos during the movie. Waitresses served the food to the customers dur- ing the presentations. The Pitcher Show opened on the Strip on Ciniversity Boule- vard after the renovation of the old Tide Twin Theaters was fin- ished in October. The Pitcher Show was only the second of its kind in Alabama and the first twin beer theater in the Southeast. " We saw ' All The Right Moves ' there and really en- joyed it, " Cindy Kenney, a sophomore from Jasper, said. " It was real nice, " Randy Watts, a senior in public admin- istration, said. " In fact, I think we should go back real soon. " The Pitcher Show also had the largest television screen in the Southeast, according to Burson. There was free admis- sion for the televised football games, the Academy Awards presentations and the winter Olympics. " I loved watching the Acade- my Awards there, " Jenny McCollum, a freshman in me- chanical engineering, said. " I don ' t have a television in my room and that was the best way to see it — in 15 x 10 living color. " " We got a lot of eaters and drinkers during football games, " Burson said. " We ' re never out of beer here. " Groups could also rent the theater and have private par- ties. Sororities and fraternities held swaps or parties. The most popular movies for the groups were " The Big Chill, " a movie concerning old college friends who come together after one of their group com- mits suicide, and " Against All Odds, " a movie of love and my- stery in the tropics, according to Burson. For Burson there was a cer- tain formula to determine how much food and beverage the Pitcher Show would sell during the movies. " If it ' s an action violence movie, people will eat a lot more, " Burson said. " I sold a lot of food during ' Scarface. ' " If there ' s a lot of sex in a movie and if a group like two couples come in, they will drink a lot, " Burson said. " During horror movies, you don ' t sell that much food at all, " Burson contiued. " During comedies, it ' s about average. " a — Tara Askew new look.

But when pockets were empty, anytime tellers came to the rescue. At Ferguson Center alone, three anytime cash machines, one each from First Alabama, First Southern and Guaranty Federal banks provided a solu- tion to lackof-cash despera- tion. " It ' s so easy to use that I use it more than checks, " said Lisa Muliinax, a junior in office man- agement from Jasper. " Getting a check cashed can be a has- sle, but this is simple. " The simplicity of using a cash card sometimes created a problem. " I should tear mine up or give it back to the bank, " said Robert Mullins, a junior in mar- keting from Atlanta. " It ' s just too easy to get money. " Most cash machines operat- ed by inserting a plastic card with a metallic strip on the back into the machine. After punching In a security number, the anytime teller allowed cus- tomers to withdraw or deposit cash or check account bal- ances. Cash cards were available for about $5.00 per month with most checking accounts for students with good credit standing.

Greeks Dress With Distinctive Style The look was classic: starched button-downs, khakis, conservative suits, a consider- able amount of plaid. The col- ors sometimes changed and the animal on the pocket lapsed from favor every few years, but the basic look was perennial. Who wore it? The greeks on campus, mainly, although al- most everyone owned a white button-down. Greek garb in- cluded everything from top sid- ers to polos, but despite its classic air, the greek look was subject to trends. Twisty beads, for example. They were the rage last spring, with the long strands coming in every color imaginable. " I like them because you can get a lot of different strands and make a lot of different necklaces, " Kathy Sofie, a freshman in communications from Tuscaloosa, said. " You can mix and match. " Ray-ban sunglasses were an- other popular item among greeks last year. Sofie said the glasses were popular " just ' cause they ' re cool " Other eyewear that attracted a greek following were the " Risky Busi- ness " sunglasses. Most traditional clothing popular among the greek com- munity was well-made and du- rable. " A good pair of topsiders will last for years, " Darrell Thomas, a junior from Birmingham, said. " And if you starch your shirts, they ' ll last longer, too. Sure, a lot of this stuff is expen- sive, but it ' s quality clothing. " Sofie said greeks don ' t dress similarly on purpose. " It ' s just that they ' re style-conscious.

Spread across 325,000 quare feet in an unas- jming brick building on auloosa Ave., the Roch- 5ter Products Plant, a di- islon of General Motors, scame an unusual fac- Dry laboratory unit hich provided an eco- Dmic boost to Tusca- losa, an unparalled op- ortunity for applied re- ;arch for the University, id a " factory of the fu- jre " for GM. A joint agreement be veen Rochester GM lanagement, Gnited uto Workers, and (Jni- ersity officials saved the lant from closing with lis unique arrangement etween industry and ducation. The plans ere finalized late in Jan- ary 1983, but the wheels ad been in motion for sveral months. In the summer of 1982, ochester Products an- ounced that the plant ' ould be closed unless 2 million could be arved from the facility ' s early operating ex- enses. The plant was ble to trim SI. 5 million Trough layoffs, by cut- ng back from two work- hifts to one, and by re- ucing travel — but find ng the additional 500,000 was nearly im- possible. " We just couldn ' t find anything else, or find any- one else to help, " said Lawrence Barnes, Tusca- loosa plant manager, " un- til we thought of the Uni- versity. " Through detailed re- search by students and faculty, the University hoped to develop cost- cutting programs that would save Rochester $470,000 yearly for the next three years, thus making it cost-efficient. In September, within eight months of the begin- ning of the project, the cost savings were real- ized and the 200 employ- ees at Rochester received the money they contribut- ed by Christmas. A joint task force com- posed of three representa- tives from the University, GM and UAW would have final approval of all pro- posals for cost cutting, making sure program costs didn ' t outweigh benefits. Membership on the task force changed as specific projects were completed and new ones began. Barry Mason, professor of Commerce and Busi- ness Administration, was appointed head of the task force. He comment- ed that the opportunity was a " dream arrange- ment " for the University. " There ' s never been a chance like this before for faculty and student s to become so fully involved with a business, to apply classroom theory to on the job practice, " he said. If the University ' s plans were not realized and Rochester ' s costs were not reduced, the University would have to pay $470,000 yearly, mi- nus the savings generat- ed. But all those involved were very optimistic. " We feel it ' s not a gam- ble, " said Roger Sayers, University vice president who helped work out the agreement. " We don ' t an- ticipate any net cash out- lay because we are confi dent of our ability to meet or surpass the $470,000 a year level of cost savings. " In fact, in the final analysis, we see the bal- ance in our favor because of the benefits of using the facility and a number of other considerations we ' ll receive. " In addition to allowing the University use of the facility, the agreement also provided for GM- sponsored scholarships, fellowships, and other such support for the Uni versity, and it gave the in- stitution an advantage in competing for research contracts and grants chard Washbu from GM. " The University of Ala- bama is naturally pleased to participate in an under- taking that has the poten- tial to benefit the local economy and industry in general. " Sayers said. " But we are most excited about the educational op- portunities this offers our faculty and students. " Researchers in chem- istry and biology, for ex- ample, are accustomed to doing their work in a laboratory set up accord- ing to their specifications. Business and engineering colleges, on the other hand, rarely have the lux- ury of a highly realistic work environment in which to carry out their studies — but that is ex- actly what this applied re- search facility will pro- vide. " This is, without exag- geration, a model pro- gram in this country in- volving key elements in contemporary society — industry, organized labor, and higher education. It is only with this sort of coo- peration that this nation can regain a position of leadership in productivity and high technology ad- vancements. The Univer- sity of Alabama is proud to be a part of this pio- neering endeavor.

" We realized that we could not only save jobs, but could actually create a factory of the future through applied re- search, " said Robert Le- Fauve, Rochester Pro- ducts general manager. Edward P. Czapor, GM vice president in charge of the Electrical Compo- nent Group which in- cludes Rochester Pro- ducts, described the agreement as " establish- ing a new relationship be- tween GM, the (Jnion, and the educational commu- nity. " The success we achieve with the factory- of-the-future model devel- oped at Tuscaloosa will make a significant contri- bution to the specialized knowledge necessary for survival in the highly complex world of busi- ness and economics, " Czapor said. tJAW Local 2083 Shop Chairman Grady Cook hailed the arrangement as " the best possible solu- tion " for all concerned. " Our members will keep their jobs, GM will learn how to save money through improved tech- nology and management, and the University will collect a significant body of research in a vital area, " he added.

The union voted 143-19 to donate $55.20 from each weekly pay- check to establish an op- erating fund for the Uni- versity to use in the plant. The agreement guaranteed full repay- ment of employee contri- butions when the trust fund was terminated. Owen Bieber, the vice president in charge of United Auto Workers ' GM department, said the in- ternational union ap- proved Local 2083 ' s par- ticipation in the project " because we need to ap- ply the resources of the academic community in addressing the needs of the industrial sector. " He said the union would make a terrible mistake to allow a facility such as the Rochester Plant to close " when the kind of expertise which could po- tentially save it exists within a nearby universi- ty- " Cooperative research projects at the facility in- volved almost every divi- sion of the University in some way. The faculty of the College of Communi- ty Health Sciences pro- posed a wellness pro- gram for plant employees that could lower health in- surance rates and also, through preventive tech- niques, decrease usage of the existing insurance package. Richard Washbi Dr. Everett Brett, direc- tor of the University ' s Natural Resources Cen- ter, and Lee Richey, UA campus energy manager, worked with Dr. Walter Schaetzle, Professor of mechanical engineering, on some unconventional energy-saving measures. An aquifer system to cool the plant, similar to the one that cools the Univer- sity ' s new Student Re- creation Center, was part of the group ' s plan. In ad- dition, plans were to con- solidate work areas into one area of the building so that the whole struc- ture would not have to be cooled and heated all year. There was also talk of using sodium lighting instead of flourescent and utilizing skylights to trim energy costs. Representatives from the College of Commerce and Business Administra- tion brought up the idea of employee involvement circles, or quality circles. Quality circles increased productivity and employ- ee morale by establishing a positive relationship be- tween labor and manage- ment. Dr. David Miller and Dr. Rae Mellichamp, both management science pro- fessors, and T. Allen Hen- ry, an engineering profes- sor, began looking at the plant ' s inventory control practices with their stu- dents. The group hoped to develop more accurate forecasting of demand for inventory and would pur- sue other production planning improvements. Dr. William Formby, assistant professor of criminal justice, pro- posed analyzing the plant ' s security system for potential cost reduc- tion. Electronic security systems were suggested. High technology com- puter systems were also in Rochester ' s future. The implementation of CAD CAM (Computer Aided Design Computer Aided Manufacturing) and robotics were topics being examined by the mechanical engineering department. Several student teams, such as one that pro- duced a Rochester orien- tation film, became in- volved in the project. Ma- son stressed, " We are taking seriously this mis- sion of using the plant as a ' laboratory ' for the teaching and training of students and for faculty research. " " I learned a lot about working with the people that actually do the work at a plant of that size, " Maureen Meadow, a hu- man resources manage ment major from Atlanta, Ga., said, " It ' s been a valuable experience and a real help in the future, I ' m sure.

This sight came not from a science fiction movie, but rather from one of the three electron micro scopes located in the basement of the biology building. According to Dr. Harri- ett Smith — Sommer- ville, head of the electron microscope division, there were two types of electron microscopes — the transmission scope and the electron scope. These microscopes oper- ated by sending powerful electron beams through specimens that had been sliced to a thickness of 1 24,000 of an inch with specialized diamond knives that cost SI, 800. Since the images dis- played on the screen were two dimensional, the scopes were primarily used to observe cells, cry- stals and other minute specimens that did not re quire a three-dimensiona view. The two micro scopes were used primar ily by biologists to investi gate cell structures and their relationships. The scanning electron microscope was used for examining specimens with large amounts of surface contour that re- quired three-dimensional viewing. With the use of liquid nitrogen and various oth er chemicals, the speci men was freeze-dried and coated with gold or plati- num. This coating al- lowed the electron parti cles to reflect evenly from the surface of the specimen, projecting the bigger-than-life image on a screen. Both the transmission and scanning units had the capability of magnify ing subjects up to 200,000 times their natu- ral size, allowing exten- sive research with minute specimens.

" We try to show what will make significant con- tributions to the commu nity and the students, " he said. Partially funded by a donation from Sarah Moody and remodeled by University maintenance, the gallery opened in Gar- land Hall in February of 1967 after being in Clark Hall for a number of years. In 1981 the gallery was dedicated to Moody by the Board of Trustees of the University. According to Granata, the gallery was compara- ble to those at other uni- versities similar in size to Alabama and endeavored to bring in original works of art from outside the area for the benefit of the students and community. " It ' s similar to the con- cert and visiting lecturer series that other depart ments have, " he said. Some of the artists who have had exhibits in Moody Gallery include Lee Krasner, Conrad Marca-Relli, Picasso, Dorothea Lange, and Al- ice Baber. Granata said, " We try to have a variety. It ' s not an easy job and it takes a lot of time to put an exhibition together. " The exhibits were se- lected by the faculty, who tried to select works dealing with a wide vari- ety of media, including Chinese Woodcuts, Brit- ish Painting, American Il- lustration, and Construc- tivist Tendencies. " It ' s al- most a microcosm of a museum, " said Granata. " Our procedures follow accepted museum proce- dures. " For an area the size of Tuscaloosa to have a gal- lery of its caliber is really amazing, " Ken Adams, a senior art major, said. " They had an exhibit last semester — the Mazi drawings — that were ex- cellent. I picked up tech- niques and ideas that I want to try. The faculty exhibits add another di- mension to what they tell you in class; you get to see if they practice what they preach. " The gallery tried to sponsor between 12 and 15 shows during the year, including those of gr adu- ating seniors, masters de- gree seekers, and faculty members. Other students were able to hold shows in the Ferguson Center gallery if they felt they had enough material to do so. Asked how he felt about this, Adams said, " 1 think most of the students in the department agree that their stuff is not yet worth exhibiting there. They can show in Fergu- son where there ' s a nice gallery for student work near a student pathway.

Bailey, designer uu For future pilots, guiding tiie fligiit simulator through obstacles is almost Like the real thing The loud hum of the spinning rotors filled the small CIHl helicopter cabin as the machine awaited takeoff. With the help of the flight instructor, the pilot eased the craft from the ground on a course that took him by T.V. towers and buildings that threat ened to pluck the ship from the sky. Mission completed, the pilot stepped from the cockpit and onto the first floor of Hardaway Hall The flight simulation that took place was made possible by professors James Dudgeon of the Richard Washburn electrical engineering de- partment and Earl Bailey of the aerospace engi neering department. The two men designed and put together the flight simulator from scratch. One of the remarkable things about this ma- chine was how economi- cal it was. " Were doing what a $4 million com- puter can do, and we ' re doing it with a $40,000 computer, " Bailey said For this reason the CI.S Army has shown consid erable interest in the sim ulator, and has even giv en the University a grant to carry on its experimen- tation. The heart and brains of the simulator were five main computers which handled up to eight mil- lion computations per second in actual flight. The pilot simply moved the directional controls and the computer flashed up a graphic picture of where his ship was head- ed. These computers also placed in digital form the necessary instrumenta- tion readings and plotted flight patterns. Another unique feature of the simulator was the ability for the student to program the computer to fly an aircraft of his own design. This was primar- ily used by the students in aerospace engineering to see just how their cre- ations flew and how they could possibly be im- proved aerodynamically. Other machines devel- oped by Dudgeon and Bailey that have stemmed from the origi- nal simulator were a sim ulator for the U.S. Army missle lab in Huntsville and a prototype flight computer for Boeing Air craft whose home base was located in Seattle, Wash.

Two wells designed to lump water out of a coal ed methane well were lut in operation near the Itudent Recreation Cen- sr to begin supplying atural gas to heat water t the center and to even- ually supply the energy eeds of a number of ampus buildings. " The primary purpose if the University ' s meth- ne wells is to evaluate he resource, " Dr. C. Ev- rett Brett, director of the atural Resources Center aid. " We will evaluate he technologies used in Irilling the wells. The re- earch will prove benefi- iai to the University be- ause of the profit it will eceive from the natural |as. " According to the direc- or of the Gas Research JChafd aihburn institute, John C. Sharer, the Warrior River Basin held a potential of 40 to 60 trillion cubic feet of coal bed methane that could be worth $160 bil- lion to the area. The system worked with two pumps designed to remove the water in the coal bed, which lowered the pressure and allowed the gas to escape from the coal and collect in the areas where the wa ter had been pumped out One well used a conven tional pump, pulling wa ter up the shaft and de positing it in the sewer system. This pump re- moved approximately 75- barrels a day, while the other well, using an un- derground electrical pump, removed around 1,100 barrels a day. Both wells were drilled over 2,000 feet under ground to reach the aqua- fier stem, located in a nar- row belt near the Recrea- tion Center. A third test well drilled on the hill near the center found that the amount of water varied greatly within a few hundred yards. According to Dan Thompson, a technical program assistant in the Mineral Resources Insti- tute, the quality of the gas extracted was very good. " It ' s about 98 per cent methane, and it has a heating value of 1,000 BTGs per cubic foot. " he said. The University was also chosen as the site of the placement of one of 40 experimental fuel cells. These cells were similar to a large chemi- cal battery, with the only difference being the oxy- gen hydrogen fuel mix- ture that the cell used, ac- cording to Brett. The system was in- tended to heat the Stu- dent Recreation Center, providing hot water for the showers, one of the main energy uses at the center. The fuel cell was essen- tially pollution free, since its hydrogen source was the methane generated by the wells to the coal bed. The oxygen for the cell came from the air. Brett said. The contractors and sponsors of the project in- cluded Southern Com- pany, SOMED, Kaneb Services, the Matural Re- sources Center, and the Gas Research Institute as well as the University ' s School of Mines and En- ergy Development.

The class required ss discussions, written ies, oral presentations i participation in the nputer game. ' This class brings ev- thing together in the siness school, " said Dr. nnie Strickland, co- ter of the Tempomatic game. " It sharpens analytical skills and develops the students ' confidence in their abilities, " he said. Classes were divided into teams of three or four students who be- came the chief executive officer, the chief accoun- tant, the plant manager and the marketing direc- tor of their own company. Each company made clock-radios that were produced, distributed to markets and sold based on the decisions made by the teams. Each class be- came an industry of clock-radio producers. How much to produce, where to distribute the clock-radios and when to build a plant were some important decisions made. Students entered their decisions into the computer each week. " There are about 75 variables to consider when making the deci- sions, " Dr. Arthur Thompson said. Thomp son taught GBA 490 and also helped Dr. Strickland develop the structure of the class. " Our biggest decisions each week are what the price and the sales alloca- tion of the product should be, " Pam Martin, a mar- keting major from Deca- tur, Ala., said. " We ' re 14th out of 15 but it ' s just because of stupid mis- takes. We ' ll get better though. " " The students consider their own internal produc- tion, marketing and finan- cial objectives, " Thomp- son said. " Other varia- bles to be considered are a direction of the overall economy, competition within the industry and the growth rate of de- mand. " " Our strategy right now is to maintain our current position at 7th out of 14, " Debbie Ad- ams, a human resources management major from Birmingham, said. " ' May- be other teams will fall below. " " This course gives an overall picture of what it takes to make a busi- ness successful, " Dr. Thompson said. " It has an emphasis on what a student needs to be a suc- cessful manager, too.

The machine converts almost any common type face to synthetic speech. p ,j 194 Academics: Reading Machine Donated to the (Jniversity, the Kurzweil Reading Machine becomes An eye for the blind When (Jniversity law student Buddy Gray went to the library to study, he didn ' t search for a quiet corner. Instead, he head- ed for the Kurzweil Read- ing Machine, where he placed his book face- down on the machine ' s glass top, pressed a few buttons on the adjoining control panel, and. within seconds, was listening to an electronic voice read- ing the page aloud. For blind students like Gray, the new machine was a major break- through. It signaled an end to slow Braille read- ing and reliance on re- corded tapes and human readers. Its potential for breaking down traditional barriers to blind and visu- ally-impaired students and workers was almost limitless. The reading machine, made by Xerox ' s Kurz- weil Computer Products, could scan and convert to synthetic speech almost any book or typewritten page printed in English. It could also be used as a talking calculator, per- forming and announcing aloud both simple arith- metic computations and complex logarithmic, trigonometric and expo- nential functions. In the future, it could possibly even be able to scan and describe maps, charts and photographs. The University ' s Kurz well Reading Machine, valued at $30,000, was one of 200 such ma- chines given by Xerox Corporation to colleges and universities around the country, and one of two in Alabama. Recipient institutions were selected from some 3,000 colleges and univer- sities on a variety of crite- ria including number of blind students enrolled; existence of an active program of support for blind and visually im- paired students; ability to provide a good, accessi- ble location for the ma- chine and maximum hours of availbility; will- ingness to promote use of the machine; and an ac- tive job-placement pro- gram for the blind According to Patricia Renn-Scanlon, acting head of the reference de- partment at the main li- brary, the machine was intended for both student and community use. At present. Gray and one other student were learn- ing to use the machine and two women who work in the community were expected to begin training soon. " The machine requires from 10 to 18 hours train- ing depending on the indi- vidual, " Renn-Scanlon said. (Jpon completion of the training program, a user received a card au- thorizing him or her to use the machine when- ever it is available. Renn-Scanlon learned to operate the machine and to train others at a two-day training session at the Kurzweil com- pany ' s home office in Cambridge, Mass., short- ly after the (Jniversity re- ceived the equipment. " I was blindfolded throughout the training. I had to learn to trust the machine and to listen to what it was telling me, " she said. The machine was pro- grammed to tell the lis- tener exactly what opera- tion it was performing, its current position on the page, if it was waiting for a command and much more information. " The reading machine offers the blind and visu- ally-impaired great inde- pendence in reading, be- cause the operator has complete control over it, " Renn-Scanlon said. Its 38 controls allowed the user to speed up or slow down the reading rate, repeat the previous few lines or words, spell out words, announce punctuation and capitali- zation, and mark words or phrases for later refer- ence. For Gray, mastery of the machine would mean the chance to read his law school assignments for himself. He relied on recordings of books (when they were avail- able) and on his wife and others who read to him. He did foresee a day when he would be able to use a Kurzweil machine in a law practice. The machine had an omnifont optical charac- ter recognition system that scanned and recog- nized printed characters. A small computer within the machine found the lines of text on the page, recognized the letters and grouped them into words. Another computer deter- mined the correct pro- nunciation of each word and also added the appro- priate intonation pattern to each spoken sentence. Experienced users could learn to read as much as 250 words a minute. ! — Linda Hill Working with the blind or visu- ally impaired.

The students, each ma- joring in petroleum or mining engineering, de- scended into the dark, dusty coal mine some- times several times a week. Under the guidance of Park, they collected rock samples, studied mine structures, mea- sured pillars and took readings from gauges in the walls and ceiling. Park said the study was aimed at measuring the stresses of rock at ex- treme depths to develop a plan that would enable industry to extract as much coal as possible without risking mine fail- ure or collapse. At Jim Walter, where 3,000 employees working around the clock extract about 6.5 million tons of coal annually, officials said safety and efficiency were their primary con- cerns. Bill Carr, president of the mining division and vice president of Jim Wal- ter Resources Inc., said he welcomed the univer- sity researchers inside the mines. " We ' re interested in upgrading the talents and experience of students that eventually will be out in the field, " Carr said. " They will be that much more qualified and the industry will be that much better served. " Carr said the benefits of this " cooperative ef- fort " were two-fold. The University was an actual underground laboratory to conduct research and Jim Walter Resources had access to its findings. The students agreed. " When you ' re in a classroom and you see it all on paper, you don ' t get perspective of what a mine is really like, " said Aubrey Wilson, a senior from Tuscaloosa. " A lot of people may under- stand it in a classroom, but when you put them underground, they ' re lost. People may think of a miner as having a pick and a shovel and carrying a bucket of coal, but to- day it ' s all automation. " The automation was noticeable when one first steps on the elevator to go into mine. Descending 900 feet per minute, the ride down was made uncomfortable by blasts of frigid air 196 Academics: Mines Watching a demonstration of the work processes explained by Dr. Park, Aubrey Wilson, a junior in petroleum engineering from Cottondale, gains practi- cal experience by working in a mine.

The 2-by-3-mile had to be ventilated well to guard against the possi- bility of an explosion due to gas buildup. Each miner was outfit- ted with safety glasses, an emergency respirator, rubber steel-toed boots and a hard hat equipped with a powerful intensity- adjustable light. Stepping off the eleva- tor into the mine was like walking into an under- ground city. Flood lights illuminated the immedi- ate area near the shaft, where the wind gusts of up to 30 miles an hour persisted. Nearby, work- men maneuvered equip- ment and supplies to and from the shaft. A woman — her face blackened by coal dust — worked alongside them. Transportation was a low-lying, open-car " bus " powered by battery, equipped with spotlights at either end and guided by tracks running throughout the mine. The vehicle was more like a train but miners called it a bus. The ride toward the " face " (where the prima- ry mining activity is tak- ing place) was bouncy and noisy. The track snaked its way around narrow corridors, up and down geologic faults and through swinging iron doors purposely put there to control ventilation. At some points along the way, lights from min- ers ' hats could be seen in the distance as workmen went about their busi- ness. A blast of dynamite rocked the air momentar- ily and those under- ground could feel the pressure change in their ears. At the face, curtains sealed the area where a blade-equipped machine lumbered along a 650- foot track, carving coal from the wall and shoving it onto a nearby convey- or. Giant hydraulic sup- ports, costing $40,000 each, lined the track and protected the miners from a possible roof col- lapse. The air was thick coal dust and miners here had to wear goggles and respi- rators. Their faces were as black as the coal they were extracting. Meanwhile, Dr. Park and his crew seemed oblivious to the work go- ing on behind the curtain at the face. The students read the gauges and measured the stress changes that had occurred since the face was relocated. Their calculations would be used by Jim Walter Resources, Inc., to determine where and how much coal could be ex- tracted without risking a roof collaspe. Once above ground, they had to cleanse the coal from their eyes, ears, face and nose, Aubrey Wilson described the stu dents as looking like a " grease pit " when they came out. !

" We made shoe boxes that had a small hole on one end that projected the sun ' s image into the box and a person could look through another hole to see the shadow of the moon covering the sun. " The museum also had 12 telescopes on the Quad and placed cards under the scopes to show the image reflected by the sun. This was the most common way to see the eclipse.

There ' s only one profes- sor I know of that makes you stand up and answer questions in front of the class. " Sharon Hindman. a third-year law student from Hodges, said. " But there ' s no difference in that there ' s a lot of pres- sure to be prepared for class. " Pressures that were ex- perienced in undergrad- uate school became easy problems to solve com- pared to the stress that was experienced in law school, according to Tim Burson. a third-year stu- dent from Atlanta. Ga. " It ' s not like under- graduate school, and many are not prepared for It. " Burson said. " Some come in not now- ing what they want to do in law and it becomes es- pecially stressful for them. " The first year could be the most stressful be- cause of the initial uncer- tainty of the law school surroundings — classes, professors, higher expec tations and curriculum in- volved, according to Bur- son. " The first year is the most stressful because the student is learning a new language and a new lifestyle, " he said. Other students agreed that the first year was the worst. " That was the most ir- ritating part of law school at first because you don ' t know how to approach the material. " Katherine Mclntyre. a second-year student from Birming- ham, said. " You don ' t know if you ' re doing any- thing right, until the next semester when the grades come.

" I ' m a little ner- vous now. but I ' m more worried about what ' s coming up because I know what Will went through " " The orientation before law school started that first semester was a great help. " Hindman said, " be- cause you get to know the people that you are going to be spending a lot of time with for the next three years " " There are a lot of older students — some are married — and going to law school does take up a lot of time, which can create a stressful sit- uation with a spouse, " Burson said. " You really have to learn to be flexible abou t each other ' s time and keep a good attitude, " she said. " Last year, my husband went to law school and I took care of our baby. Mow, we share the duties. " " You can ' t say. " Well. I ' ve got more to study than you do. you take care of everything while I study. ' " she said. " You have to be considerate of what the other person is having to study or pre- pare. " But were the stressful three years really worth the work? " I think it will be worth it. I ' ve enjoyed it overall, " Hindman said, " but I ' ll be more qualified to answer that in about a year when it ' s all over.

Dr. Zarl Ferguson, director of the Zenter for Business and Eco- lomic Research, makes plans with Ed Rutledge. associate di- ector. Dr. Carl Ferguson, CBER director, said the center handled more than 1,000 requests a year, which broke down to one request every hour and a half. And much of the in- formation was provided free of charge. " The University has a mission, and organiza- tions like ours in the Uni- versity need to support the state, " Ferguson said. " We are a service agency of the University. " CBER officials said the center was one of the Uni- versity agencies giving meaning to the service and research words in the University ' s motto. CBER would some- times require payment if substantial requests were made, but Ferguson said even in these instances, the cost was subsidized by the center. Ed Rut- ledge, CBER associate di- rector, said one reason the center does not charge for much of its in- formation was that so much was put to multiple uses and usually was needed for more than one request. CBER ' s work was more simply stated: " to acquire, maintain, ana- lyze and disseminate so- cio-economic data on the state and region, " accord ing to Ferguson. Determining data about the future — eco- nomic forecasting — was a complicated, highly speculative matter. And CBER officials knew of the caution necessary when making such pre- dictions about the future. " We have been right many more times than wrong. But you can be wrong in each forecast, really wrong, " Ferguson said. Some agencies used the center ' s forecasts as the forecast. However, Ferguson added, econom- ic and revenue forecast- ing was a " game anybody can play and you are only setting yourself up for a fall if you say you are the definitive source. " Data and analytical techniques were in the public do- main. He suggested that pub- lic and private agencies looked at other economic numbers before making decisions. " We don ' t rec- ommend that people only look at our numbers, " he said. There were some other agencies in the state making economic forecasting. But CBER, in operation since 1930 was the primary source. The State Department of Revenue was general ing some revenue esti mates and the University of Alabama in Birming ham published a quarter ly overview of the present economy and not a fore cast. " Both the public and private sectors tend to be skeptical of any agency that says it knows what ' s going to happen, " Fergu- son said. " We try to avoid this. We try hard to come up with the best test. You know you ' re going to go wrong in estimating, but you try to minimize your error. Forecasts were a prod- uct of historical data and assumptions about future conditions, combined with observations about the structure and role of the various facets of the economy. They were a " product of our view of where we ' ve been, where we are now and how we got there, extended into the future, " he explained. In other words, you took an understanding of the past and applied it to the future. The economic struc ture could change over a longer period, thus mak ing long-range forecasts very difficult. Factors such as technology and major recessions were not easy to guess. Short range forecasting were al ways updated as factors change. Rutledge said he " projects, not predicts " in forecasting. He knew he would be in the direc tion of the economy in his forecasts, but not right on it.

" Part of the collection s housed in the basement of Smith Hall and part here in the osteology lab, " Dr. Kenneth Turner, associate professor and director of the Laboratory for Human Osteology, said. " We don ' t have Preparing for an anthropology :lass. Dr. Turner collects the jlastic casts of the rSeander- ihal and progressive Neander- thal men. The casts were repro- Juced from actual 70.00-year- Jld skulls found in Africa and the Galilee region. enough room to house all the bones at the lab. " The collection held the remains of more than 5,000 people, mostly American Indians, ac- cording to Turner. " The bones were col- lected during the depres- sion years. To give men jobs during those years, the government set up excavation sites and the men would work at digs, " Turner said. Most of the bones were found around the North Alabama area and primar- ily the area around the upstream of Seven Mile Island and around the Moundville area, 20 miles from Tuscaloosa. The collection was so famous that anthropolo gists around the country came to Tuscaloosa to study the bones for spe- cialized research in differ- ent areas of bone re- search. They studied sub- jects such as prehistoric bones and tendon lesions. " I ' m studying the health and disease pat- terns of the Indian popu- lation in Moundville as part of my dissertation, " Mary Powell, a physical anthropologist and gra- duate student from Northwestern University, said. " This is a famous col- lection because of its large size and also how well kept the bones are, " Powell said. " I ' m finding that the In- dians of that period, from A.D. 1,000 to A.D. 1,500, were relatively healthy, " she said. " In that climate there was always food growing, either wild foods or what they planted themselves. " " We also hold anthro- pology classes at the lab teaching skeletal and den- tal anatomy and another class that studies fossil- ized human remains, " Turner said. " And we have classes in the sum- mer that go to Moundville and excavate the areas for new specimens. " But it wasn ' t just an- thropologists that learned something from the col- lection of bones. Geral- dine Skipper, associate professor at the Capstone College of Nursing, took her folklore class to visit the lab and talk to Dr. Turner. " I learned a lot about how much bones can tell you about how the people in the past lived and what they ate, " Jane Sanders, a junior in nursing from Tuscaloosa, said. " Dr. Turner showed us the skull of a person who had a cleft palate. The person was old when he died because the skull was large. That means the family or the people in his town must have taken care of him or he would have died. " " I was impressed by how you could also tell a person ' s ea ting habits by looking at his teeth, " she said. " If his teeth were filed down, he had a lot of grain or dirt in his diet.

" It ' s a nice quiet place to take a snooze, all right, " Todd Bradford, a freshman from Jackson, Miss., said. " But tonight I ' ve actually got to work. My research paper is due tomorrow and I haven ' t really started yet. " For the serious grad- uate researcher, as well as for the last minute, panicked freshman, the Gorgas Library contained a wealth of books, gov ernment documents, ref erence materials, periodi cals and indexes to sup port research in the hu manities and the social and behavioral sciences. Departmental libraries across campus had simi- lar research materials to cover their particular sub- ject areas. " I always begin my search here, " Amelia Powell, a junior from Leeds, said. " Sometimes I have to go to Bidgood, too, but usually I can find just what I ' m looking for right here. " " It is a very complete and impressive library, " Chip Wilson, a transfer student from Troy State said. " It is kept up to date and is well organized. It makes research a lot ea- sier. " In addition to offering books and periodicals. the library offered several special services. On the fourth floor, the special collections de- partment housed rare books, manuscripts and materials relating to Ala- bama history. In addition, a music lis- tening area, a collection of records and tapes, a calculator loan program, display cases, xeroxing areas, a computer-assist- ed search for reference materials and a machine that read to the blind all were offered. " The whole librar y is a really nice place to study, sleep, socialize, or what- ever, " said Melanie Wil- son, a junior from Bir- mingham. — Morene Melson Tom Ledbette Taking advantage of the xerox room, William Garrett, an elec- trical engineering major from Montgomery, photocopies magazines articles to carry home for further examination. A very special collection History was being made, or at least being preserved, on the top floor of Amelia Gayle Gor- gas Library. On the fifth floor, Jo- seph Moudry, biblio- graphic assistant of the acquisitions department, restored old books that had been either donated to the department or bought for the collection. " We concentrate on the leather-bound books and try to restore them to their original look, " Moudry said. " These books are really very beautiful under all the buildup that has accumu- lated on them. " Some of the oldest books the University owned were a 1550 ser- vice book of a Spanish monastery, a 1590 Italian geography book and The History of the Cam- paigns, concerning the battles of King George Ill ' s army during 1780 and 1781, written by Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton. " The maps in these books are beautiful. Peo pie had to sit and paint all the rivers and roads with watercolors, " Moudry said. " The binding on the books is phenomenal, too. There is such intri- cate design on the covers and our main job is to re- store the covers to their original look. " Because the covers were made of leather, de composition was com- mon. " Leather dries out over a period of time and sul- phur from the air creates an acid and eventually eats through the cover of the book, " Moudry said. To prepare the surface for treatment, Moudry used a fine powder that cleansed the small bits of dirt off so the acid neu- tralizer could be applied. As the powder was rubbed on the surface, dirt particles were raised up from the crevices and grain of the book and then brushed off. Potassium lactate, the acid neutralizer, was pat- ted carefully on the leath- er areas so as not to touch the wooden boards that were the basis of the covers before cardboard was used. The neutralizer removed the brown resi due created by the acid. ' It ' s a little like polish- ing the book, " Moudry said. " I ' ve taken a book that was totally brown, that didn ' t even look like it had a design on the cov- er at all, and I have un- covered the original intri- cate design. " " Right now, we ' re working on an extremely large book written in 1763 by John Smeaton about the Edystone Light- house in Scotland, " Moudry said, " This is very satisfying work. It ' s rewarding to see an an- tique come back to life to be experienced again. " . — Tara Askew Academics: Library 209 Checking on the laboratory Taking a photo of a blood mice in a lab room.

Studies were per- formed under strict sani- tary conditions and hu- mane rules through the direction of Dr. James Neville, consulting veter- inarian for the animal care facility. " The animals are not tortured or abused in any- way, " Neville said. " They are well taken care of by all the doctors in their areas. " " We use strains of the animals that are bred spe- cifically for laboratory work, " Dr. Ron Hood, pro- fessor of biology, said. " The strains have been bred over the years to stress characteristics that are necessary in studying different sub- jects. " Dr. Carl Westerfield, chairman of Health Edu- cation and associate pro- fessor, studied rats " to determine the effects of a vasectomy on blood and the instances of athero- sclerosis possibly caused by a vasectomy. " The different strains of animals were bred for dif- ferent characteristics — physiological and genet- ic, according to Wester- field. " There is also a com- mon outbred strain of mice that is not bred for its characteristics, but used in laboratory experi- ments, " Dr. Hood said. " This mouse has the ad- vantages of being hardy, easy to keep and not very expensive. " The animals were kept in a very controlled atmo- sphere, according to Dr. Neville. Purified air was circu- lated in the laboratories seven times every minute to insure sterilization. Bottles and cages were cleaned and sterilized in a large restaurant-type dishwasher every day. Outsiders could not touch the cages or the animals for fear of con- taminating the animals with any outside germs or disturbing their metabo- lism. " You don ' t want tc contaminate a colony with a germ from the out side because it could pos sibly ruin the whole ex periment, " Westerfieic said. " The animals art very susceptible to dis ease because they have always lived in a con trolled environment. " " If you let the rabbits loose in the woods, they would die, because they have never learned ho to collect food or protecl themselves from othei animals, " he said.

Built in 1930, the build- ing, then known as the Alabama Union, was once the center of atten- tion on campus, housing the Student Entertain- ment Committee and oth- er student service organi- zations. However, in the early ' 70 ' s those offices moved to the new Fergu- son Center. Since its inception in The once dilapidated 0 d Union building stands completely ren- ovated after an extensive $4.5 million facelift and a change in occupancy from Student Union to School of Communication. 1973, the School of Com- munication sought a building to house all its departments. For a few years, there were plans to build an annex to Carmi- chael Hall, but then it was decided that the Old Union was the best choice. Plans were drawn up, and approximately $4.5 million was secured to renovate the main build- ing of the Old Union com- plex in three phases. Phase one was com- pleted in December, 1982 with the improvement of the ground floor which housed the offices and studios of University Television Services and television studios for the Department of Broadcast and Film Communica- tion. Phase two was com- pleted in the fall of 1983 with the upper floors re- modeled. The majority of the School of Communi- cation took over the rest of the building with the journalism department fi- nally moving from Carmi- chael Hall in the Spring of 1984. Phase three of the ren ovation would involve the improvement of the an- nex building which housed WVUAFM, the student radio station, communication school services and the Universi- ty Bands. S2 million will be needed for the annex, and once it is completed, the remaining sections of the School of Communi- cation, Speech Communi- cation and public radio station WUAL-FM will be moved there. The renovated main building featured faculty and administrative of fices of the communica tion school and its depart ments, the Communica tion Research and Ser vice Center, seminar rooms (including the Mel Allen Room) and teaching labs. Also, the production fa cilities of the Med ia Plan- ning Board and The Crim- son White, which were shared with the journal- ism department, were moved in May to separate areas in the main building and annex.

Larry Shaffield Academics: Communication Building 213 For students in the metallurgical lab, making the grade was the same as Making an impression Students completing classes in the metallurgi- cal lab were left with an ironclad impression. In the special cast alloy procedures class, stu- dents learned how to de- velop molds for industrial produ ction purposes through lab experience making ashtrays and ele- phants from 2,800 degree pig iron, according to Dr. Doru Stefanescu, associ- ate professor of metallur- gical engineering.

Hatcher, acting dean of the chemical engineering de- partment, operates a high pres- sure catalytic reactor. The equipment was donated to the University in 1978. Operating ttie controls of an in- dustrial furnace, John Hendrix. a metallurgical engineering ma- jor from Tuscaloosa, prepares to melt 60 pounds of metal into a mold to make a cast. the ' equipment for the metallurgical lab was " relatively new " and qualified the University as one of the top engi- neering schools in the country, Stefanescu said. The facilities made it possible for students to practice processing metal from ore extracted from the earth. Students learned how to make their own casts by creating a pattern, an exact replica of a subject, usually made of wood or metal. The pattern was used to make the mold from which the cast was Chip Cooper made after being filled with hot melted iron. At 2,800 degrees, the students melted the pig iron in an industrial fur- nace. The furnace could melt up to 60 pounds metal at one time. When the metal was prepared, it was poured into the mold and cooled. " That ' s when the stu- dents get dirty. I don ' t have to do that anymore because I did that when I was a student, " Ste- fanescu said, " and now I ' m a professor. " " I don ' t mind working in there, " David Stillman, a mineral engineering ma- jor from Birmi ngham, said. " I know I ' m learning something that will put me ahead in the future. " " Our foundry is also unique because it is run totally by students, " Ste- fanescu said. " We teach the students the theory behind the metal casting and the metallugical in- dustry and provide them with actual experience. " " I really enjoyed the class when I took it, " Wanda Kresal, an indus- trial engineering graduate from Huntsville, said. " I still have my ashtray and elephant from two year ago. I wouldn ' t part witi them. That was the mos fun part of the class. " There isn ' t any wa; that you can learn how i foundry works and get ac tual experience befon you graduate unless yoi actually work in one, an( there aren ' t many founc ry jobs for women.

They learned the skill of riding, jumping and taking care of a horse during the class that gave them a one hour credit. " This class is not just hopping on a horse and riding, " Johnson said. " The students learn to distinguish the different breeds of horses, how to groom the horses and the different styles of riding, for example. " The students start at their own level of riding. If a student has had ex- perience with horses be- fore, he or she could learn another style of riding or go on to jumping horses. " I worked in a camp for about five years and I got used to being around horses. " David Bishop, a freshman in mechanical engineering from Rich- mond. Va., said.

" The class provides just a general back- ground, " Dr. Jeremy But- ler. BFC 140 instructor, said. " The knowledge is very basic. " To get an overview of the whole process, stu- dents spent the first weeks of the course with selected readings and watching excerpts from classic films before being guided through outdoor Super-8 exercises by But- ler. " We shot long shots, medium shots and close- ups of Denny Chimes at first, " class member Rick Richard Washburn Dowling said. " Then we moved on to more chal- lenging things. " As the course pro- gressed the class filmed simple action sequences and attempted in-camera editing and special ef- fects. For homework and six- ty percent of the semes- ter ' s total grade, the would-be Spielbergs had to write, direct and pro- duce a fiveto-15 minute film. But what chances did the student-directors-writ- ers-producers have of joing the ranks of Lucas and Coppola? " I can ' t guarantee a job, " Butler said. " The film industry is very com- petitive. There are a lot of people to fill only a small number of jobs. It ' s next to impossible to break in unless you have some sort of major connec- tion. " But despite the odds, some Alabama graduates had at least one foot in the door. Alumnus Clay Harrison was a producer- cameraman for Allen Lensberg Productions, re- sponsible for " Those Amazing Animals " and " That ' s Incredible! " tele- vision programs while Frank Paris was an asso- ciate producer of " Guns- moke " and finally a sen- ior editor at Walt Disney Productions. " Also, I think there is some guy who is a porno director. " Butler said. " But you ' d better check with Knox Hagood (an- other BFC professor) on that, though. " " Yes, there is a major porno director from Ala- bama, " Hagood said. " But he didn ' t graduate from this University. " And even though stu- dents could take film classes, there was no film major. " You have to major in BFC with an emphasis in film, " Butler said. " That means you have to take television courses, too. We want students to be well-rounded.

" That ikes it easier on us be- jse we could be in a jgram that puts the idents on call every ler night. " The Capstone Medical Center offered a three year residency program that included both outpa- tient and inpatient train- ing, according to Dr. Riley Lumpkin, assistant dean for Continuing Education and Professional Rela- tions, and the College of Community Health Sci- ences. " We interview over 80 resident candidates every year and choose 12 of that number to work at the center, " Lumpkin said. " When chosen, the residents are assigned their own patients and confer with the attending physician if there is a serve problem or a ques- tion about a diagnosis. " It ' s an excellent pro- gram because we get to spend time in all of the major disciplines. " Ar- thur said. " Especially in the first year, when you spend two months in in- ternal medicine, then two months in psychiatry, etc. " As a first-year resident, Arthur was liscensed to practice under the super- vision of the faculty of the medical center. According to Arthur, the most stressful times could be during internal medicine cases, when the resident dealt with adults in the majority of cases.

" ne physical examiner ained the plans of the ition as " a tremen dous goal each year. Through the dedication and love of its workers, and many hours of toil, the health fairs are suc- cessful. " For two non consecu- tive weeks, residents of Section in Jackson Coun ty. Sand Rock in Chero kee County, and Fork land in Greene County under the direct supervi sion of a licensed physi cian, received " physical examinations, lab tests, eye tests, speech and hearing tests, and well water testing ... all giv- en at no charge to indivi- duals, " explained another physical examiner. In re- turn for the services, the communities housed and fed the Coalition staff and provided a health fair site and volunteers. Lab worker Jo Ann Bu ford, a junior in nutrition, said, " The families I lived with made me feel very much at home and I feel as if I ' ve made friends for a lifetime. " One student felt that " it wasn ' t just the people of the communities that made ' the summer, but also the 24 people who worked together as the Coalition team. " These workers included medi- cal, nursing, optometry, speech and hearing, and various undergraduate students. A health fair held in Section in 1977 created the enthusiasm which led to the development of a clinic. The Coalition ' s previous commitment and responsibility to the community brought a health fair back at the resident ' s request — to promote the clinic. " The health fair was a way to show off the facilities they have to the towns- people, " according to one physical examiner. In the last week, the pa- tient load had tripled as to th e number of patients who came before the health fair. " We also had a lot of new people re- quest that we send their records to the clinic for future use, " explained Section community work- er Karen Alexander, a senior in social work. A total of 659 people were screened. About 983 residents from Sand Rock and the surrounding areas partici- pated in the health fair, making it the largest in Coalition history. Through the health fair, " Sand Rock realized that every group in the com- munity could take part in a successful, total com- munity project, " reflect- ed Sand Rock communi- ty worker Therese Baker, a senior in special educa- tion.

Academics: Coalition 223 i hand A health fair held in Forkland in 1980 motivat- ed residents to strive for a self-sufficient clinic. The community had gradually raised money and begun rennovation of the build- ing. " To assist in this chal- lenge the ' health team ' became the construction team ' for a week, " ex- plained one student. During the second week, 22 residents par- ticipated in the health fair. " We rekindled Inter- est and enthusiasm in a group of people who are willing to work for that clinic, " said a physical examiner. According to co-coor- dinator Suzanne Enlow, a senior in New College, " The Coalition ' s defini- tion of health is broad and encompasses social, po- litical, economic, environ- mental, and educational factors, not simply free- dom from disease. " The coalition service in the form of a health fair serves as a " stepping stone to community awareness, " explained a lab worker. Of the 27 towns which hosted health fairs in the nine- year period, nine devel- oped clinics, one con- ducted a town beautifica- tion project, one rebuilt a washateria, one started a community-based educa- tion program, one devel- oped a library and a fire department, and several organized health coun- cils. Complete control over decision making made the responsibility for the success or failure of the health fairs solely that of the students. The desire of students to have a vo- cational and learning ex- perience which could give them perspective on their classroom exper- ience, help prepare them for their careers, and teach them about the state proved to be strong motivation for good work. The structure of the health fairs allowed stu- dents from various disci- plines to learn from and support each other. " I learned to rely on me, on my few tools, on my edu- cation, on my interper- sonal skills — on my co- workers, " said physical examiner Mark K. Ad dison, a second year medical student at the University of South Ala- bama School of Medicine. The fairs gave students a chance to think about their personal values, their society and their own ability to make and follow up serious commit- ments. " INot only have I learned about quilting, canning, and knife col- lecting; but I have also reexamined my beliefs in God and my knowledge of my religion, learned about organizing and mo- tivating, and learned about health, " said Mary Beth Hauswirth, a senior in special education. During the 1983-84 academic school year, improvements in the Co- alition were discussed and implemented, new members recruited, the 1983 Final Report was completed, and prepara- tions for the 1984 health fairs were begun.

" And Huttenstlne ' s teaching influence was evidenced by former stu- dents who were practic- ing media law or shared her enthusiasm for the subject. " Most of us don ' t spend much time think- ing about how precious the First Amendment rights are and how impor- tant they are to all of soci- ety, " she said. " It ' s very easy for us to be enthusi astic about protecting the rights of the person whc agrees with us. It ' s c whole lot more difficul for us to protect tha same right in those tha disagree with us. But i we don ' t protect everj one ' s right to free expres sion, we limit not only thf dissemination of ideas but we limit our own abil ty to think, reason, learn and understand. " — Amy Kilpatricl Prentice-Dunn He ' s Involved With The Mob A crowd develops out- side the White House late at night. Chants are heard and the crowd eventually becomes an uncontrolla- ble mob. The mob tries to pass the guards and storm the gates to reach the President. A loud bull- horn goes off and guns are shot into the air by police. A helicopter flies overhead and shines a bright flood light. The mob disperses and leaves the area. According to Dr. Ste- ven Prentice-Dunn, assis- tant professor of psychol- ogy, authorities do not have to resort to violence to control the people in incidents like the one de- scribed above. " Instead of using force to control a mob or any type of crowd violence, police should be able to use a loud noise or lots of light at night to break the people up, " Prentice- Dunn said. Prentice-Dunn studied what types of situations created crowd violence and what would control or stop people in those periods. In simulating a mob sit- uation in a lab atmo- sphere, Prentice-Dunn discovered that under certain circumstances people would end up in a great state of suggestibil- ity, almost like hypnotiza- tion. " For example, listen- ing to loud rock music stimulates people to act dfferently if listened to for 45 minutes or more, " Prentice-Dunn said. " That just doesn ' t h ap pen when a person listens to slow, calm music. " " People in mobs feel a strong sense of cohesion, a we ' feeling that makes them very impulsive, " he said. " In interviewing a group after experimenta- tion, the individuals say they felt energetic, thought differently than they normally did and they realized that they were getting in over their heads but they didn ' t wor- ry about the conse- quences. " This is a new area — studying mobs scientifi- cally, " Prentic-Dunn said. " It ' s called deindividua- tion — individuals go into a group context in certain circumstances. In study- ing crowd violence, ways can be found to control the people without resort ing to violence, too. " D — Tara Askew Mob violence can be controlled, according to Dr. Steven Pren- tice-Dunn, who believes crowds become " hypnotized " and be- come violent as a unit. Chip Cooper 226 Academics: Faculty Staff Magazine B a 1 d e s A Real Storyteller There weren ' t many classes where you could sit down and hear a good story or two, but Greek and Roman mythology was an exception. Dr. Richard Baldes, as- sociate professor of Ro- mance Languages and Classics, told, or taught, myths of the days of an- cient Greece and Rome. The mythic theories also made the stories more interesting for the students, according to Dr. Baldes. " The myths were more than just stories to people in later time periods, " Baldes said. " People in- terpreted the myths and these interpretations could be studied and the social mores and spiritual beliefs of those people could be found. " During the Middle Ages, the people didn ' t know what the stories meant so they interpreted them to their time, " Baldes said. " Take for example, the story of the man that chased the girl and when he got close to her she changed into a tree, " he said. " The people during that time period interpret- ed the story as a search for the Virgin Mary, " Baldes said.

" I didn ' t know this when I came here, but Alabama and Japan do a lot of trade, " Shishido said, " and they know very little of each other " Through the program, the University supported economic and cultural ties with Japan. The program contin- ued with support from a grant given to the Univer- sity in the fall of 1983. The Japan Foundation, a non-profit Japanese orga- nization which promoted international cultural ex- change and mutual un- derstanding between Ja- pan and other countries, gave a S54,000 grant to support a full-time profes- sor of Japanese language at the University and at Tuscaloosa Academy, a college preparatory school.

" We had to do testing by flying samples on jet planes that, when flying high enough and fast enough, developed a 30 second period of time in which there would be zero gravity in the plane, " Stefanescu said. At zero gravity, it could be possible to produce cast iron with a high graphite content, accord- ing to Stefanescu.

" Before a project like this can begin a report has to be filed with the Corps of Engineers, who is responsible for chan- nels and their projects, " Raney said. " The report is an environmental im- pact statement that pre- dicts the type of changes that could occur if the bay is deepened. " According to Raney, if Mobile Bay was dredged, the current of the wat er could change and cause either more salt water from the Gulf of Mexico or more fresh water to en- ter the bay. " This could cause the salinity level (amount of salt water compared to the amount of fresh wa- ter) to ' change and the oysters in the bay may not live in their natural habitat, " Raney aid.

As thousands of students filed through Ferguson Center during " Get on Board Days. " there was definitely something different. While the well-established service and social groups were present, there were others. Very special others. The lesser- known groups present, oddly expressing individuality through affiliation, suddenly gained attention for their unique special interests. As Uni-jugglers executed a delicate balancing act by jug- gling and riding a unicycle si- multaneously, members of the fencing club were on their guard for tournaments. And as the Jasons dashed their new members with cold, rousing buckets of mud, the Yoseikan Budo club studied and practiced the far-Eastern art. The added spice of these special organizations and honoraries, combined with the efforts and concerns of equally hard working others, made the year one of special unity and distinct individual- ity — a year of taking the wraps off.

You could put the band in the middle of a cow pasture and we ' d still have a good tirne with everybody, no mat- ter what. " There were 325 people in the band in 1984, but the group still shared a sense of " family. " " You get pretty close. " Hoven said. " When you all work hard for the same goal, everybody gets close. You can ' t help it. " When the band packed up their instru- ments in December after the last game, the closeness didn ' t end. " A lot of the band members have band stickers on their cars, " Odom said. " So when you ' re out of town and see someone with a sticker, you wave even though you don ' t really know the person in the car. It doesn ' t matter because you have a com- mon bond. " Hoven agreed. " The band is a great big family, even though it ' s obviously too big to know ev- eryone really well, " she said. " When 1 came as a freshman, I didn ' t know anyone, " Tracy Leopard said. " But after that first week of practice before school starts, I got to meet a lot of people and become friends, it helped break the ice. " While the band remained close through- out the year, one member of the musical family left the fold. Dr. James S.

When a " hit " was made on the opponent, a buzzer would sound and a light would flash, signifying the score. " We try to do it in French. In the upper levels you have to know it to know what ' s going on, " Hendrickson said. The club was open to anyone interested in fencing, and usually attracted a number of people during the beginning of the se- mester. But there was a significant drop- out rate, according to Hendrickson. " It takes a little dedication in the first three months to go through it. If you can ' t move your feet, you can ' t fence, " she said. Often 75 percent of the students who joined the club would drop out in the first few weeks. In addition to their practices and match- es, the group did demonstrations of fenc- ing techniques. Several members per- formed on the Tom York Show, a Birming- ham morning talk show. They also did per- formances of fencing techniques during " Get On Board Days " in Ferguson Center. " Fencing is about 75 percent mental, " said Hendrickson. " You don ' t just run around and kick a ball. It helps develop coordination and thinking skills. " Each member wore the traditional fenc- ing outfit of a white tunic and knickers as well as the mask for protection during matches. The uniforms gave them their own special look on campus.

" Bully " indeGraff played tackle for the Crimson de in 1915. The Crimson White was cele- ating its 21st year of publication then, cording the triumphs, failures and close lis of the Tide and the whole University immunity. And while Bama ' s football fortunes ded and brightened for the next 70 years, le CW mirrored the academic gains and lins of a University in search of itself and football team destined for glory. As the Crimson Tide piled up victories, lampionships and accolades during the Ds and ' 80s, The Crimson White began illecting awards of its own. Since 1974, The CW has garnered 12 All- Tierican ratings from the Associated Col- ge Press. Given semi-annually, the All- Tierican rating rewards journalism excel- ice and achievement. And in 1977, the •wspaper took the coveted Pacemaker I ' ard. But the many awards that lined the walls of The Crimson White newsroom told only part of the success story of the University of Alabama ' s 91-year-old student newspa- per. " Working at The Crimson White is an exhilirating experience, " Lance McKerley, CW editor for 1983-84, said. " Watching a story grow from bits and scraps of facts into front-page news is something that only a handful of University students can do. " We appreciate the responsibility we have to the University community, " McKerley said. " We realize that the trust students and faculty place in us is some- thing we must earn every day we hit the newsstands — three times a week. " 1983-84 Managing Editor Ed Howard thought the people who worked with the CW were unique. " We are the students ' eyes and ears. They come to us for information, entertain- ment and thought-provoking opinions that concern them and our University, " Howard said. " They can ' t find that in any other newspaper, so it ' s our job to deliver. We give it our all. " " Reporting the events that shape the re- lationship between students and adminis- trators, " Jerry Underwood, news editor for the 1983-84, said, " We help fill the void between the students and the administra- tion. " Sometimes what people read in The CW makes them mad. But that only serves to force them into action, and when posi- tive change results, we all benefit, " he said. The newsroom was only part of the award-winning CW team. Working endless hours behind the scenes were the advertis- ing and production departments. Nearly all of CW ' s revenue was generat- ed by the advertising sales team headed by Advertising Director Joel Mask. The adver- tising representatives were essential to the newspaper; without their help, The CW probably would have ceased to exist. H — Clay Brooks _. M a H i m m . ' M ' - . } • ' M k ' m ' 1 i ; i .

Yelps and cheers broke occassionally from the combatants ' lips as the spectators looked on. Soon the battle was over, and a new king was crowned, to rule over the members of the Mediev al Interest Society for another year. The Society, associated with the Society for Creative Anachronism, was devoted to recreating the Middle Ages, in everything from cooking and clothing to fighting, mu- sic, speech, and government. The mem- bers designed clothing, armor, and weap- ons to fit the period, and, during weekend retreats, lived the lives of Medieval citi- zens.

" We ' re all interested in the Middle Ages, so it ' s a good way of learning about them. " One aspect often emphasized was the fighting. The weapons were swords made of rattan blades with pommels attached with duct tape. Shields were usually made of wood, and armor consisted of every- thing from carpet to leather to full steel, which could weigh as much as 50 or 60 pounds. The helmets were required to be of a certain thickness of steel, with regulat- ed opening sizes. " It ' s very safe, " Hartman said. " I ' ve nev- er seen anyone get hurt with anything worse than a bruise. " The members would often fight for any number of reasons, but usually for the women. " It ' s not exactly antithical to the wom- en ' s movement, but we do fight for our ladies, wear their charms, write love songs to them, and so on, " Hartman said. INames were also created for each mem- ber, who tried to create a persona for the period. Hartman was known as Athalwolfe von dem Rhein, or Noble Wolf of the Rhine. They also designed a coat of arms, as well as a history for their character. During the year the members attended several feasts and tournaments held by clubs in their kingdom, which included Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, parts of Arkansas, and Bowling Green, Ky. They were involved in the lists, which were double elimination one-onone tournaments to pick their ruling classes, cooking, dancing, and learning more about their time period. If you should happen to hear the sounds of battle and smell the scents of cooking one foggy morning in the woods, it ' s only the members of the MIS once again re- creating a time long lost.

Tom Ledbetter It ' s Bama ' s Loudest Voice The " voice of the University of Ala- ama " was not the voice of a high-ranking niversity official, but that of WVUA, the :udent radio station, 91.7 on the FM dial. Advertised as the " voice, " the non-com- lercial station was used as a training round for students majoring in broadcast- ig with an emphasis in radio. " " We ' re getting experience as dee-jays so e can get our feet in the door, " Brian ellum, a junior broadcast major from ance, said. " " But the great aspiration of a erson in radio is to be a station manager r program director. " Working for the station for three semes- ;rs was a requirement of a broadcasting lass, according to Kellum. The student dee-jays had to work two or Tree shifts of three hours each during one leek. " The class was easy and hard, " Kellum aid. " " It was easy because you enjoyed ' hat you were learning, but hard because f the three hour shifts at the station. ' " WVCJA was known for the different pes of music that it played, especially as ompared to stations in town that featured either country music or CHR — contempo- rary hit radio — music. The station could have been classified as an AOR-album ori- ented radio-station that didn ' t have to stick to the top 40 pop hits. " It ' s probably the only station that any of us will ever work for that won ' t have to worry about revenues or ratings, " Kellum said, " and it ' s better that way because you don ' t have to play the contemporary hits over and over again. " The non-commercial station was known for its hard rock and heavy metal sound that may have turned some students off, but there was still an audience for that type of music. " We listen to ' VCIA in the warehouse at work, just turn it up loud so everybody can hear it, " Jim Singleton, a Tuscaloosa resi- dent, said. " They really do play some good music, better than that Lionel Richie stuff on other stations. " The " " voice " ' also tried to diversify their music offerings with regular theme shows every week. Every Sunday morning there was the " ' Gospel Train " during which contempo- rary religious music was played from 9:00 a.m. to noon. " Breakfast Rock " ' greeted listeners from 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. Led by Kellum and his partners, Jennifer Lee, Jimmy Meighbors and Jeff Jones, the show tried to motivate students to make it to class on time. Dr. Jeremy Butler, assistant professor of the broadcast and film department, and George Hadjidakis, proprietor of The Vinyl Solution, played the sound of the future during " Progressions. " The music, billed as ' " punk, reggae and rockabilly, " was a different fare than what would be expected in a small Alabama town. " I listened to ' Progressions ' because they played the oddest music but it still sounded good, " Todd Becker, a business administration major from Athens, said. " The Heavy Metal Experience, " starring Ace Johnson, a senior broadcasting major from Greeneville. was the station ' s most controversial show. Such diverse hits as " Balls to the Wall, " " Bang Your Head " and " Shout at the Devil " were the show ' s sta- ples.

" It ' s more personal for us to go one-on- one with people to share our faith. " Mike Williams, the director of the group, said. The members often met in small groups in an appartment or dorm room to conduct Bible studies or just to talk, according to Williams. After explaining her beliefs in God to clarify her interpretation of the Bible. Alesia Nelson, a sopho- more in business administration, asks for Mike Wil Mams ' ideas on her viewpoint. Several members were involved in spreading the Gospel through speaking to students outside campus buildings or on the quad. " Generally there are a few people who disagree with what we do, but I ' ve usually seen pretty good feelings about it. Most people aren ' t bothered by it, " Williams said. " We do preach some. If I ' d seen some- one doing that before I became a Christian, I ' d have thought they were nuts. We ' re just sharing what we feel about God with oth- ers. " The organization brought several speak- ers to campus, including Rosy Greer of the famed Seattle Fearless Four and Rice Brooks, another famous speaker, who both spoke to interested students. Several mem- Richard Washburn Crowds gather in front of Ferguson Center around lunchtime to hear Mike Williams discuss Maran- atha ' s program and its ideas of how a successful Christian lives his life. Sharing the word with students gathered in front of Ferguson Center, Mike Williams, director of Mara- natha. tries to " bring people to a closer relationship with Christ. " bers also attended a conference in Colum- bus. Mississippi, where members of Mara- natha groups at a number of southern uni- versities met, including Mississippi State, Southern Miss, and the University of Ten- nessee. " It was a chance for us to hear some of the internationally known Chris- tians, " Williams said. Members often got together for cook- outs, to play volleyball. Softball and fris- bee. and " just to have a good time. " " If you found something very precious and valuable to you. would you want to hide it, or would you share it with others?, " Williams said. " That ' s the way we feel about it. Our main desire is to serve God and the University in any way we can.

" Our biggest accomplishment was the jdent loan program, " John Bolus, presi- nt of the SGA, said. The program was t up using monies left in excess in the serve fund at the end of the semester, le Alumni Association provided match- 3 funds of S25,000 to help provide loans those students nearing graduation who ight not have enough money to continue eir studies. " 1 think it is very worthy of jdent money, " Bolus said. Another project of the SGA was con- uction of the amphitheater. The SGA cured a site in the area around the out- lor swimming pool near Paty hall for con- ' uction, winning the support of Dr. lomas, president of the University. An chitect was secured and groundwork as done to allow construction to begin in e summer. " That ' s a facility that I think the stu- dents will enjoy for years to come. I think it will bring back the outdoor entertainment we ' ve been missing for the last few years, " Bolus said. The Academic Misconduct and Griev- ance policy was implemented with the joint efforts of the SGA and the faculty to provide a (Jniversity-wide procedure for students to use. Previously each school had different rules, leading to a great deal of confusion, according to Bolus. " We have a fair policy which everyone will use, leading to less confusion, " he said. Other projects included implementation of the Escort Express, a van service for students stranded on campus at night, ere ating block seating for the Birmingham games, and implementation of the SGA Report, a publication used to provide infor- mation to students about activities in the SGA. The Bolus administration came to an end with the election of Ray Pate, a junior from Tuscaloosa, in January. — Stephen Lomax Walking away from the podium in the Ferguson Center Ballroom, Ray Pate and Tate Watson, a ju- nior from Ft.

" Anyone with a college ID and a driver ' s license could enter, " David Gayle, chair- man of the trials, said. " There were a lot more people there the second day after they f ound out it was a lot bigger produc tion than they thought it was. You have to try it once to get it started on the campus. " The top three winners of the trials were given Dodge Daytona leather jackets and the overall winner was given an all-expense paid trip to Daytona, Fl. to compete against the winners from 69 other college campuses that had sponsored the events also. There, they each had a chance to win part of a $20,000 scholarship. Using one of two specially equipped Dodge Daytona Turbo sports cars, each participant was required to negotiate a course outlined with pylons. The cars were fixed in first gear to prevent going faster than 35, and had kill switches to stop them by radio control if one of the drivers should lose control of the car. Making last minute checks, David Shaw, a senior physical education major from Hamilton, waits for the all clear signal from race officials before starting his engine. tnlering his car to begin the race.

This increased the turnout of people watching, according to Gayle. 7-(Jp and free posters were given to both participants and specta- tors as part of the promotional effort. " The man that got us started gave us pointers on how to handle the car, like keeping constant pressure on the gas ped- dle and not hitting the brakes, " said fourth place finisher Richard Washburn. " I think I could have done better, but I hit the brakes on the last turn and the back of the car fish-tailed a little. " " My helmet was a little too tight, so that was uncomfortable, but I really enjoyed it, " Cynthia Curtis said, " it went by so fast, but it was fun. " " I was very nervous about driving in front of all those people, but it all went fine once 1 got started, " John Wallace said. The cars were accompanied to each campus with a full pit crew and two former drag racing drivers to help the students. Each was required to wear a safety helmet as well as a seat belt. " The trials were sanctioned by the Na- tional Safety Council and we were striving to promote safe driving practices and drunk driver awareness. I feel like we were ' fairly successful in our efforts, " Gayle, a mathematics major from Montgomery, said. The money from the event was used by Omicron Delta Kappa for its philanthropy projects and to help secure a room in Fer- guson Center for the club. The senior hon- orary planned the event with help from Campus Dimensions of Pittsburg, Penn., and planned to make it an annual event on campus.

The organi- ion ' s most fundamental purpose was to nulate interest in and mobilize support the betterment of the whole University, rhe Association presented 75 scholar- ps totaling more than $200,000 (not in- ding individual chapter scholarships), ese included 30 Honors scholarships of 150 each for four years, 35 Leadership lolarships of $1,150 each for one year i 10 Junior College scholarships of 150 each for two years, rhe Association also sponsored the adership Honors Seminars in the fall, ich attracted more than 600 high school ident leaders to campus in 1983. Parents ' Showcase ' 84, held in Febru- ary, was attended by more than 1,000 par- ents, current students and prospective stu- dents. Parents had a thorough, but lighter, look at academics, campus life, housing, financial aid and other important aspects of life at the University. The Alumni Association honored four University faculty members every year with the " Outstanding Commitment to Teaching " award. Other awards presented were the Distinguished Alumna and Alum- nus awards and two Outstanding Student awards. The Association worked very closely with the Office of Admissions in recruiting students to the University. Acting as a link between the alumni and their University, the Alumni Association maintained records on some 125,000 alum- ni and mailed more than one million pieces of information annually to members. There were more than 20,000 active members, most of whom were involved in some 65 in- state and 55 out-of-state chapters. For the first year after graduation mem- bership in the Alumni Association was free. For a tax-deductible contribution of $20 per person and $35 per couple each year thereafter, graduates could be mem bers of the Association. Some benefits of membership included receiving the awarding-winning Alabama Alumni News magazine, the Alabama Alumni Bulletin, alumni football ticket or- der blanks, discounts at the University Supply Store and full use of the Ferguson Center facilities. The Alumni Association sponsored ac- tivities such as Homecoming, class re- unions, and football weekend and bowl package trips. Local alumni chapters all across the na- tion sponsored speakers such as Universi- ty President Joab Thomas and Athletic Di- rector and Head Football Coach Ray Per- kins. The chapters also sponsored events such as golf and tennis tournaments to raise money to fund local scholarships to the University. D _ ■ ' — Tommy Ford Organizations: Alumni Association 261 Nothing To Yawn About As the clock inched slowly past 5 a.m., six Corolla staffers yawned in unison and decided to call it a night . But the year was nothing to yawn about as the yearbook saw a change from spring to fall delivery and a revision of the book ' s editorial policy. " When last year ' s book was finished, we put it on the shelf and forgot about it, " said Editor Ricky Emerson. " We wanted noth- ing to be the same. We didn ' t want to depend on the past. " To make sure plans for a different look were carried out, Emerson and Shannon Hurt attended the College Yearbook Work- shop in Columbus, Ohio in August. " We learned a lot, " said Shannon Hurt, a freshman from Florence. " The main lectur- er was Col. Chuck Savedge, the nation ' s foremost yearbook expert. He was great — always brimming with enthusiasm and new ideas. " After Hurt and Emerson returned, an on- campus workshop with Savedge was held. " It was the highlight of the year, " said Tara Askew, managing editor. " There ' s no way we could have known how to do the book we wanted to do without Col. Sa- vedge ' s help. He was so helpful. " Based on ideas from the workshop, the staff formulated different design styles for each section and planned to upgrade the greeks and organizations section, " usually the worst section in the book, " according to Emerson. " Our coverage of greeks and groups has been shameful in the past. Greek photos were weak and group shots were so monot- onous, " Emerson said. " We tried to change all that by sending our photogra- phers and reporters out to each greek house and to select organizations. The end result is much better coverage, a much better section and definitely a better book. The workshops helped us bring proper coverage for these sections into focus. " In November, Emerson and Photo Editor Rick Washburn attended the Associated Collegiate Press convention in Chicago and made " the most drastic alternation " to the book, according to Emerson. " While we were at the convention, I was talking to a friend of mine, Gary Lundgren, two-time editor of the award-winning Gem at the University of Idaho, and we began discussing the possibilities of fall delivery. The more we talked, the more it made sense. We needed to have a fall delivery to have time to adequately cover our cam- pus. Doing a 500 page book for spring delivery doesn ' t give a lot of time for qual- ity, so I thought fall would be best. Luckily, the Media Planning Board agreed. " The change improved the quality of the book, according to Tara Askew, managing editor. Rick Washburn " When we were doing the 1983 edition, it was a constant, round-the-clock battle to churn out 120 pages per month. There was almost no way to do highest quality work in this time frame. Our book was well- received and won several awards in ' 83, but there was no way we would do what we wanted to do in the ' 84 book on the spring schedule. " In March, the 1983 edition was present- ed with its first-ever Medalist rating from Columbia Scholastic Press Association and nine Gold Circle Awards, including first place awards for cover, copy, sports spread and student life spread. Emerson and Washburn attended the convention in New York City during spring break. With a change of delivery date and change in editorial policy came a change in printers. " We were so happy to be with Josten ' s American Yearbook Co. in Clarksville, Tenn., " said Askew. " Their color and black-and-white printing is second to none. And they ' re the nicest people. It was such a welcome change. We couldn ' t ask for more.

They were all compo- nents of the (Jni-Jugglers club. The organi zation was formed during the spring semes- ter by a group of students who were " inter- ested in learning more about the two sports from other people also interested in them, " according to Junior Dave Privett of West Palm Beach, Florida. " I saw them juggling on the Quad one time and stopped to talk to them . I joined up to see if I could help them out or if they could help me, " John Gomolka, a graduate student in Geology, said. Since its formation, members of the group have performed on a number of oc- casions, including during basketball half- times, Spring Fling, Parents ' Day , at Uni- versity Mall, and in the Birmingham Jeffer- son Civic Center for the Admissions office while recruiting. Members spent about two hours a week practicing together, as well as a lot of time working on their own. Most were learning to ride the unicycle and juggle at the same time.

It ' s not extremely difficult — it just takes time and practice, " Privett said. " My roommate and I learned (to ride the unicy- cle) when we were freshmen, on the fifth floor of Paty, riding down the hall. " The group also purchased uniforms for their performances, but were unable to re- ceive them until April. " We couldn ' t use them very much before school let out, " Privett said. Mot all the members both rode and jug- gled. " I plan to learn to ride a unicycle this summer, " Gomolka said. " I ' ve been jug- gling since undergrad school, but 1 think it would be fun to learn to do both " According to the members, the sports were relaxing as well as entertaining. " I use juggling as a study break, " Go- molka continued. It was a strange sight to students when a member would ride up to class with only one wheel underneath them, but to the members of the (Jni-Jugglers, it was just another way of getting around.

The group was set up as both a team id a club to allow students to compete jainst other schools, or to just have fun viing if they didn ' t want to compete, ac- Drding to member Brad Brascho. " It is a ay to give students a twoforone opportu- ty to ski for pleasure or to compete, " he lid. The ski club was one of the most popu- r recreational sports provided at the (Jni- irsity, according to Brascho. " Boating and water skiing are the two ip leisure sports in the world, " he said. During the spring semester, the group moved from it ' s old practicing spot on Lake Tuscaloosa to the new Tide Waters Resort, a private lake rented to the team. Correct Craft at Tuscaloosa provided the team with a boat for promotional pur- poses. The team competed in four tournaments each semester, including events in Mariet- ta, Ga., and in Tennessee. " We ' re rebuilding the team, since a lot of our members graduated or went to schools that give scholarships to skiers, " Brascho said. Members also attended the South Atlan- tic Conference Championships, but were unable to attend nationals. " We receive very little money from the SGA or the University to attend these com- Tom Ledbeller petitions, so we had a lot of raffles to raise the money to go. We ' re trying to get more funding, since we do pretty well, but so far we ' re not having much luck, " Brascho said. " One of the things we do is have Ski Days, " Brascho said. " This is where we let the members of the ski club come out and ski with the team members, just using the boat all day. It ' s a lot of fun for everyone. " In addition to its fund raisers and ski trips, the group also had a number of social events including cookouts at the lake. Brascho said, " Many people were in- volved. We have an equal share of Greeks and Independents. That says a lot for us. " r — Stacey Tennimon, Stephen Lomax On a hot afternoon.

Nobody realized this more than the leaders of (Jnion Programs, the campus entertainment factory. The five divisions of Union Programs — Films, Variety. Emphasis, Horizons and High Tide Productions — worked closely to create an atmosphere that stimulated the mind, inspired the soul, and made the feet start tapping. The highlight of the year was an October concert that featured Stevie Nicks, who was riding high on sales of her hit album " The Wild Heart " that featured two popu- lar singles — " Stand Back " and " If Any- one Falls. " Union Programs hoped the success of that Memor ial Coliseum concert would reestablish Tuscaloosa as a profitable mar- ket for entertainers and promoters, said Robert Hoelscher, assistant director of stu dent life for campus activities. With a successful concert of Stevie Nicks, Union Programs proved they could promote and put on a concert for a big name performer in Tuscaloosa. Nicks performed in October with Joe Walsh before a crowd of over 10,000 in Memorial Coliseum. " That was our most successful concert and will hopefully bring bigger concerts here, now that promoters know we can pack people in like Birmingham does, " Hoelscher said. Capturing almost as much attention was Moral Majority leader Rev. Jerry Falwell, who spoke to a Foster Auditorium audi- ence during the fall semester. While heck- lers interrupted Falwell ' s speech, outside the auditorium members of the Universi- ty ' s Gay Student Union and the Tusca- loosa Feminist Alliance marched with signs denouncing the reverend and distrib- uted anti-Falwell literature. University students also got a chance to hear Coretta Scott King, widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In an event that was called very successful by Union Programs officials, Mrs. King told students not to allow her husband ' s dreams to die.

Everyday residence hall life. Why would nyone want to live here? " Well, there ' s always something going n, " said three year hall resident Pam Alii- on, a psychology major from Prattville. lousing said it so often that it became a liche: residence halls were more than just place to sleep. From the time that residents showed up in August until they packed up everything and moved out in May, something was always going on. Each hall ' s council planned movies, fashion shows, parties — always parties. Any excuse would do. Tutwiler ' s Pajama Party had become an annual tradition. Residents of Paty Hall ' s fifth floor were forced to move to the pre- viously closed Saffold Hall when their floor was closed for asbestos clean-up. They threw an " Asbestos Fallout " party to cele- brate the move. And there were parties at Mary Burke, Summerville and Palmer. Par- ties were fun and a chance to get to know some people in the hall besides the ones who lived next door. Competition between the halls was al- ways taken seriously, especially in intra mural sports. There seemed to be some- thing for everyone. Would-be stars played volleyball, football, and softball, or com- peted on the hall ' s swim or water polo team. Less glamorous sports were just as im- portant, since teams received the same number of points for entering each cate- gory. Aspiring athletes were able to play badminton, ping-pong, or racquetball. An overall count of the points was kept to determine the winner of the All Sports tro- phy, as well as to award the first place in each category. Those whose specialities were the more off-beat sports had their chance to shine at the annual Spring Fling held on the Quad.

The reward for a day ' s hard work: a tee shirt. Housing was forced to close Saffold Hall and several other small halls during the summer due to a decrease in enrollment in the University. Residents who had applied to live in those buildings were sent notices that they were being relocated, or they could withdraw from Housing without pen- alty, though the processing date had passed. " It was a little disappointing to not be able to live where I had wanted to, " Jerry rSolan, a senior from Pleasantville, New York, said. Plans of requiring freshmen to live in the halls or to convert the closed buildings into classrooms were kicked around, but things were left as they were until Paty Hall ' s fifth floor moved into Saffold during the spring semester. There were problems that came with residence hall life. You could ask any resi- dent; they probably had a long list of com- plaints written down between their Spanish homework and yesterday ' s chemistry problems. Such things as washers and dry- ers that ate money (or a sock or two) often drew complaints, as did leaky faucets. Stu- dents often found themselves stuck in the elevator or climbing the stairs in several of the halls. But housing began a serious ef- fort to improve the quality of hall living and to draw more students back into the halls. Changes were made in the administra- tion of University Housing to bring it in line with University president Joab Thomas ' s plan to make housing one of the best in the country.

" It gets a little hectic at times with peo- ie coming and going all the time outside he door, at any hour, " Pamela Eddins, a ophomore from Denver, Co., said, " but fter avi hile you get very used to it, and ou even get caught up in it so that you ' re 1 and out all the time too. " For most students the advantages of liv- ig in a hall outweighed the disadvantages, lany found that living in a hall proved to e convenient. " Meals are easy — you don ' t have to fix lem after getting back from a long day of classes, and you don ' t need to buy ail those groceries all the time, " Eddins said. It was also convenient for many stu- dents to attend classes. Residence halls were located on campus, within easy walk- ing distance of any classroom. For those who didn ' t have a car, the halls provided a good chance of finding someone who did who would be willing to take them to the mall or, if they were really lucky, would lend them the car for a date. Hall living required some adjustment, but close friendships could be and were formed. After all, for most students the hall became more like home than the place they left. " I got to know a lot more people than I ever knew back home, because I was a lot closer to them than at home. When your neighbors are a half mile away, you don ' t run into them that often! " Tony Harris, a freshman in Arts and Sciences, said. The rooms usually had paper-thin walls, so it was easy to overhear when your neighbors were having an argunent, but it all became part of the experience of hall living for students. " I lived in an apartment my first year here, " Patty Macready, a junior in broad- casting, said. " I didn ' t know anybody, so 1 moved in the dorm. Sure, it got noisy, but it was nice to know you could find some- one to talk to when you needed them or to do something when you were bored. You could always ask your friend to turn down the stereo. " " The worst part about it, " said Robin Short, a senior from Detroit, Michigan, " is having to move all this stuff in here in August and out again in May. And in again in August. " D — K.L.

The in- duction ceremony involved a complex pro- cess of throwing mud over the men select- ed for membership by a vote of the mem- bers. " 1 did the dumping this year, " Jim Dunk- lin, a senior in psychology from Greenville, said. " Last year it was very cold. I remem- ber that. Of course I was thrilled to death because 1 feel it ' s a great honor. " Because the honorary was only for men, it was not allowed to conduct formal induc- tion ceremonies with the rest of campus honoraries on Honors Day in April. Instead the mud was used to let those men induct- ed know that they were a part of the orga- nization. Formerly the group inducted its mem- bers with a shower of cold water, which slowly progressed from ice water to mud- dy water to a bucket of pure mud. " Last year it was pretty bad mud on us and we just decided to get them (the new inductees) better, " Mike Sillers, a Biology major from Gadsden, said. " We know them pretty well anyways. I think they like it. 1 know that I certainly did! " Each member of the organization was able to nominate as many junior and senior men as he wished to be voted on for mem- bership. The officers selected one or two faculty members to nominate for selection as advisors for the group, and then each person was put to a general vote for mem- bership. " Most of us are out there (on the Quad) anyways for induction into other honorar ies so it ' s not difficult to get people out there, " Sillers said. " The inductees don ' t know they ' re go- ing to get in. We decide the day before what order we ' re going to throw the mud in to keep them in the dark, " Mobile senior Edward Weed said. The group began work to renovate the Shrine by purchasing a bronze plaque for the side of the shrine. They also prepared to replace the window frames and paint the building. " It was our 70th anniversary, so we tried to make it look a little better, " Dunklin said. Head coach Ray Perkins was also induct- ed into the group. " Nobody wanted to throw the mud on him, " Dunklin said. " We were all standing around looking at each other saying you do it. ' Finally some- one threw the mud and then we all did. " Many students found it humorous that Perkins was brandishing a large stick be- fore he was hit. " It didn ' t really help much against mud, " Brenda Price, an onlooker at the ceremony, said. For an onlooker who stood too close, it proved to be a little frustrating, but to those that were inducted, it was a real honor. " You don ' t often get mud dumped on you when you ' re in a coat and tie, " Weed said. D — Stephen Lomax Richa-J " Aashburn With careful aim.

Fidel Castro ' s invasion was designed to divert American defenses to its own bor- ders while his Soviet bosses gobbled up the plains of Western Europe. Just as Cuban troops leave the shores of their island na- tion bound for the American Gulf Coast, one million Soviet-bloc troops and 10,000 tanks have poured into Western Europe.

This was the briefing received by mem- bers of the University ' s Army ROTC Rang- er Division on a November field training exercise (FTX) at Anniston ' s Ft. McClellan Army Base. Their mission was to perform tactical operations against the sparsely defended Cuban positions which included base camps and refueling pads for the Soviets. While the scenario, the objectives and sometimes even the enemy were fictional, the training exercise took on a degree of realism when Huey transport helicopters and M-16 rifles were thrown in to give the feel of a real battle. My participation in the scenario was that Rirhard Washburn of journalist covering what looked to be a regular feature story for the Birmingham Post-Herald. Personal interest in the Ranger program and the FTX grew after talking with ROTC instructor Maj. Charles Alsup about tag- ging along on the next outing. The FTXs were very important to the cadets in the program. It finally gave them a chance to practice what tactics they had studied in the classroom of Toumey Hall and the corner of the Quad where they practiced drill marches, physical training tests and compass and map reading. I knew that if I was to get any decent story out of it at all, I ' d have to get along with the group as well as possible.

The AROTC Ranger Division was a vol nteer organization open to any student at ie University enrolled in Army ROTC. he group practiced tactical maneuvers nd skills that might not be offered in basic OTC courses. Rangers also gave students considering a career in the armed forces a better idea of what military life could be like. The weekend long excursion began for the Rangers with a visit to the Ft. McClel- Ian Post Exchange (PX) where consumer goods were sold at next to cost to U.S. servicemen and their families. The cadets then dumped off their gear at a remote barracks in the compound and headed for the Officer ' s Club. This is where I met up with them after driving a battered Ford through the base searching in vain for the right barracks block. The Officer ' s Club was a posh bar com- pared to what I ' ve been used to with the student bars around town. The beer was cheap, (75 cents a bottle for Budweiser) and you didn ' t have to stand in an inch of water to use the facilities there as patrons of some of the (shall we say) " earthier " bars in town have become accustomed to. The last stragglers staggered into the barracks around 3 a.m., but the place was a zoo.

We were all up and dressed by 04:30 the next morning and the Rangers drew their rifles, blank ammunition and C-rations and were briefed on their day ' s mission before busing off to the mess hall for breakfast and then to the helicopters at the airstrip. The Rangers mock missions that day were similar to the search and destroy tac- tics deployed by American forces in South- east Asia more than ten years before. Four Vietnam-era Huey helicopters transported the Rangers in groups of eight from home base to a landing zone in enemy territory. Once on the ground, the squads then moved in to destroy their objective. The Rangers divided into two groups; the senior members of the group acting as the Cubans, or the aggressors and the ju- nior members acting as the American forces. The aggressors were flown by chop- per to their positions first while the " good guys " divided into two patrols and pre- pared plans for their assaults. I hitched up with a patrol that was sup- posed to attack and neutralize a Cuban mortar position. The choppers picked us up and flew at the nap of the earth (15 feet above tree level at about 90 mph) to our landing zone (LZ), spilling us on the ground, running for the bushes on the edge of the clearing. Shouts from the officers could barely be heard above the thunder of the chopper blades.

The bridge was actually no more than a platform built over a drainage ditch over which crossed a dirt road. A firefight began as our patrol walked into an ambush set by the aggressors.

Ruhard Washbufn Organizations: Military 287 ■on ' Admiral ' Without An Ocear It may have been 300 miles to the near- est ocean, but the (Jniversity still had its own " admiral. " Senior Chief Ted Jones, sometimes af- fectionately called " admiral. " directed the Navy enlisted officer program and aver- aged 15-17 recruits a year, " which is excel- lent for a college, " according to Jones. " Our program was the first of its kind in the Navy, " Jones said. " This program is used by the Navy as an example of how to start a recruiting office on a college cam- pus. " The Naval office opened its doors in Fer- guson Center on April 4. 1980, and there were 25 college recruiting programs across the nation within four years with more to come. " I ' m a placement officer, too, " Jones said. " I place people in their careers and on campus, I ' m available to everyone — from doctors and nurses to business students. " " It ' s really convenient having Ted there on campus, " Jon Rouse, a junior in indus- trial management from Birmingham, said. " Ted is always there to help with any ques- tion. " Rouse returned to school to become a Navy pilot, his goal since he was eight years old. " 1 wanted to be a Navy pilot ever since my mother handed me two bobby pins and said, ' Look, Jon, an airplane, ' " Rouse said. " I started getting away from it after I dropped out of college and started to work, but then I decided I wanted to go back and graduate and be a pilot. " The first step in the Navy program was to pass a test with sections on topics such as math, engineering and Naval oper- ations. " The test was real hard, " Johnny Per- rett, an ensign now stationed in Athens, Ga. said. " It really tested your knowledge. It ' s hard because they want the best people they can get. " " Ted only deals in ' quality people, ' Rouse said. " He ' s strictly by the book and he gives it to you straight. If he doesn ' t think a person could make it, he tells him or her, so they won ' t make a waste of their time. " " Some of my kids say I ' m subtle as a baseball bat and just as honest, " Jones said. " You ' ve got to be if you want quality and I can get quality students at the (Jni- versity. " Jones advertised the Navy and his ser- vices but felt the best advertisement was word of mouth. " I get referrals from a lot of places John Sofie at the Career Placement Office professors and deans from all parts of car pus, " Jones said. " I don ' t have to work i hard that way and I can concentrate moi on my kids. " Johnny Perrett, a corporate finance gn duate from Bay Minette, left for a thre year stint in the Phillippines in June. " 1 saw an ad in the Crimson White an ' talked to Ted and got interested, " Perrei said. " The $17,000 a year salary helpec too. " After graduation, Perrett left for office candidate school in Newport, R.I. " They really put you through it that firs week, " Perrett said. " It ' s just like that mc ie " An Officer and a Gentleman ' . " Perrett would use his college degree I his work in the Phillippines as a suppi corps director. " I ' ll be working on the business end c the trip there, " Perrett said. ' " I ' ll be detei mining inventory disbursements and carg( transports.

They also have become interested in dif- rent martial arts styles, including several at previously were practiced only in the rient. One of the lesser known martial arts in e nation is Yoseikan Budo, but its roots n deep in Alabama. Yoseikan Budo is a modern martial art ised on the fighting techniques of Ja- m ' s Samurai warriors, and includes kick- g, punching, grappling and throwing, as ;ll as use of the sword and other weap- is. It was founded in Japan in 1951 by inour Minoru Mochizuki, in an effort to ing the best of several martial arts styles gether to form an angle style which em- lasized strength and effectiveness in imbat. It is also a philosophy which emphasizes scipline and individuality. Yoseikan eans " the place where what is right is ught, " and, according to instructors of e art, what is right differs from person to :rson. While Yoseikan Budo is a fairly well- lown martial art style in Japan, it is just ming in close, quick contact to ttie floor is com- )nplace during this club ' s meetings.

The largest Yoseikan Budo club in the nation is led by the hus- band-wife team of Glenn Pack and Pat Saiz in Tuscaloosa. Pack. 35. a clinical psychologist at the University ' s Student Health Center, formed the club 10 years ago. while doing gra- duate work at the University. Now a third degree black belt. Pack instructs the 25 members of the club and serves as faculty adviser to the group. Pack is also the sec- ond highest ranking practitioner of Yosei- kan Budo in North America, topped only by Patrick Auge of Canada. Pack ' s wife. Pat Saiz. is president of the United States Yoseikan Budo Association, with chapters in Birmingham. Florence. Huntsville, Mobile and Aiken. S.C. Pack said Yoseikan teaches self disci- pline and builds confidence in those who practice the art. " Yoseikan teaches you to go with the challenges of your life and not to fight everything around you. " Pack said the art enables people to keep calm in any situation. " The most stressful situation one can deal with is a physical attack, " Pack said. The physical training in Yoseikan Budo " Ichi. ni. san. shi. " To the count of four in Japanese, club members Mark Boazman. Nick Crowe and John Mosely do kicking exercises. Japanese is used whenever possible in instruction. builds confidence and this confidence natu- rally is transferred into other situations, he said. Yoseikan Budo is primarily geared to- ward stopping a fight rather than starting one. Pack said, and members of the group believe in trying to avoid a fight if at all possible. Both Pack and Ms. Saiz traveled to Ja- pan to study the art with Mochizuki. who at 78 still instructs. " I ' m short and was unathletic and used to get picked on. " said Troy Hester, a 22- year-old engineering student who is in the group. Hester said he joined the club to be able to defend himself but now has found that the discipline and self-confidence built by the study has helped him in other situa- tions. Richard Moncrief. 31, a photographer with Baptist Medical Centers in Birming- ham, was Pack ' s first student when the club started, and now instructs a club at Southside Community School. Stell Simonton, 27, a recent graduate, said she got interested in the martial arts mainly for self-defense. Now a brown belt, she admits she at first felt pressured by some male members to perform up to their standards. " Sure there ' s pressure, " said Saiz.

Organizations: Honor ' s Day 293 BP Who ' s Who And Why A goal of many students during their college years was to gain some sort of recognition for their efforts. Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities provided this recognition on a national level for those students who showed superior ability in leadership, scholarship, and service. According to Melford Espey of Campus Activities, the students were selected by a committee of six members appointed by the Student Government Association Con- stitution. An open nomination form al- lowed those students who felt they were eligible to fill out an application, or they could be nominated by campus groups. The national Who ' s Who gave the Universi- ty a certain number of slots to fill based on the enrollment of the University. Running from members of the Jasons honorary who are trying to douse him with more mud, Mike Bur- num, a senior from Birmingham, runs across the Quad to escape his pursuers on Honors Day. Scottie Marshall, a member of the 1983 Homecoming Court, said she decided to apply " after looking through Corollas in the past and seeing people I looked up to and admired. " She learned through a girl in her sorority that applications were being accepted and was selected by her house to apply. " I guess there ' s a certain self satisfac- tion through working hard with organiza- tions on campus, " Marshall said. " I feel I ' ve made some slight contribution to the University and this is how they have recog- nized my efforts. " Some students had been working toward the goal for a long time. " I knew about it from high school and wanted to get into it. It ' s kind of a presti- gious thing, " said Andy Norwood. Thrilling the sell-out crowd in University Park, Pa., during the Penn State game, quarterback Walter Lewis (10) dodges Nittany Lions defenders to gain five yards and a first down. " I felt like I was one of the leaders c ' campus, " said Susan Woodlief, " and have done a lot of hard work. It was national recognition of a lot of years i hard work. " The motivation for others to apply wc the thought of future careers. " It goes c your records, you ' re distinguished amor your peers, " said Stephen Bradford. " It something a lot of people apply for, and lot of famous people were in it. " After the students were nominated b the University, they received a letter fror the national organization telling them ( their selection. A list of their achievements in collec was printed in a book along with othc students nationwide as recognition of the selection. " I think it ' s a great honor for them. The have really worked hard to achieve this Espey said. D — Stephen Loma Richard Washbi Richard Washbur Charles W. Allen Michael G. Allen Mary Beth Blalock John Norman Bolus Stephen W.

It was more than a stereotype. While parties and social activities definitely had their place in greek life, service, brotherhood and sisterhood became more than lifeless dictionary definitions to the thousands involved in the greek system in a year of very special accom- plishments. The Sigma Chi Derby raised money for the Wallace Village for children through a week of special events, including a sorority car wash and a greased pig contest. Alpha Chi Omega mem- bers, in their quest to win the Sigma Chi Derby, delved deep into the murky waters of Comer Pond to rescue the much sought after derby after its string broke and the hat sank to the bottom. Tradition played a part in each group ' s year. The Kappa Alphas, for example, led the South ' s secession from the Union during their traditional Old South party. The special efforts of brotherhood, sisterhood, ser- vice and understanding among the students involved in the greek system made the year unique and full of personal discovery — a year of taking the wraps off.

" We had a lot of fun but it seemed to go on forever, " Sta- cey River, a junior broadcasting major from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, said. The girls won by discovering the location of the coveted gold derby, but were unable to pull it from the water in Comer pond after the string attached to it broke. Members were involved in a number of swaps, including the Pi Kappa Alpha Street Gang swap, the Theta Chi Let ' s Get Physical swap, the Alpha Tau Omega Dinner swap, and the Herforming in the Miss G of A pag- eant at the Bama Theater.

The Alpha Gamma Deltas spurred interest through parties for poten- tial members and the Alpha Omicron Pis worked for the national chapter in Texas. High school girls from around the state were invited to a " Go Overboard " party at the Alpha Gamma Delta house to introduce them to the campus and the house. A party at Lee ' s Tomb and various projects at the house allowed the girls to learn more about the house and to become acquainted with the members. During April, the house spon- sored a charity dinner for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, the philanthropy project for the Alpha Gamma Deltas across the nation. " We accepted donations for the foundation before serving the dinner, " sophomore Julie Barranco from Clearwater, Florida, said. " We gave the money to the group in Birming ham after the dinner. It turned out to be a real success. " New sisters together The sorority worked hard to have a successful rush, too. Eli- zabeth Payne, a senior and president of the sorority, said, " We are a very close house and we believe our skits, songs and smiles help make rush a spe- cial and fun time for both ru- shees and Alpha Gams. " Members of Alpha Omicron Pi helped colonize a new cam- pus when they were invited by the national chapter to go to Texas Women ' s University in Dallas. " It was a real honor, " Patty Lavin, a senior in Public Relations from Mobile, said. " We performed on serious night and helped in the selec- tion process. Mow their AOPi is the largest sorority there. " The sorority was third largest on this campus, according to La- vin. On Labor Day, the sorority sponsored a flag football tour nament between the fraterni- ties. Proceeds from the tourna ment were used for the soror- ity ' s philanthropy project, the Arthritis Foundation. " Kappa Sigma won and then we had a band party with The Extras and Telluride, " Mary Beth Hood, an Atlanta, Ga. senior in advertis ing, said. The sorority also held par ties, including a Crush party, a Pledge Retreat, a Halloween party and a Christmas Cocktail party. " There was a lot of remodel ing done to our house this year, " Lavin said. " We redid the dining room and foyer, " Hood continued. " We also have a new house mother, Ms. Betty Schipp. She ' s great.

Alpha Tau Omegas scaled walls of sorority houses to pick up dates for their annual Viking party and Alpha Xi Deltas held their " We ' re Not Allowed to Leave Town " formal in Tuscaloosa. Although both parties were diverse, they were indi- cative of the elaborate social events that character- ized the greek system. From frivilous to formal Despite memories of he last Viking Party, the Alpha Tau Omegas went on with this year ' s party and made a suc- cess of it, according to John McCune, a senior in advertising from Atlanta, Ga. During the last Viking parade in the flat bed truck, several Alpha Tau Omega members and their dates fell off the back and were injured. This year ' s parade was better because the fraternity used safer trucks to pick up their dates, according to McCune. " This Viking party had to be the best because we were all ready to party, " McCune said. " The funniest part was Ray Schultz walking around in a dia- per all day. " The Alpha Tau Omegas also spent a weekend with the Boys ' Club. Members of the club spent Saturday playing base- ball and having a cookout at the fraternity house. " That was a lot of fun, too, " McCune said. " We enjoyed get- ting to know the boys and play- ing kid games again. " The " We ' re Not Allowed to Leave Town " formal of the Al- pha Xi Deltas did at least leave the campus.

For the Generic party, the fraternity nnembers and their dates dressed in white with black identifications. But, like all fraternities, so- cial activities weren ' t the only part of the Beta Theta Pis ' lives. Some of the fraternity nnem- bers focused some of their spare time on intramural activi- ties participating in several sports, enough sports to put them in the running for the All- Sports Trophy. Beta Theta Pi won the All- Sports trophy in the crimson division of the campus-wide competition for the fifth time in the last six years, according to Brad Green, a junior industrial engineering major from Town Creek " We don ' t practice that much for as good as we do, " Green said. " It just works out that we win. " The fraternity ' s philanthrop- ic projects included sponsoring local little league teams and purchasing their uniforms and having a Christmas party at their house for underprivileged children from the Tuscaloosa area. The Chi Omega sorority was also active in charity work throughout the year. The sisters collected toys and monetary donations for the Tuscaloosa organization of " Operation Santa Claus. " Other groups profiting from the sorority ' s philanthropic ac- tivities were the Tuscaloosa chapter of the cerebral palsy organization and the American Cancer Society. For the Cancer Society, the sorority organized a bike race for bike enthusiasts on campus and in the Tuscaloosa area. Traditions played an impor tant part at Chi Omega along with charity work, according to Caria McEwen, president of the sorority and a public relations major from Mobile. " Each year, we have events that are traditional and expect ed. Without them the year just wouldn ' t be complete, " McEwen said. The traditional events includ- ed Parents ' Weekend when par- ents of the sorority sisters vis- ited the Chi Omega house and met their daughters ' new " sis- ters. " The senior banquet and the Owl Hoot, where big sisters and little sisters met for the first time were big events of the year. In addition, a Christmas par ty, a blind date party and a Car- nation pledge formal were spe- cial events for everyone and would not be forgotten.

The Chi Phis did well in intramural sports, especially in football. The Delta Chis had an Indian party complete with a Mohawk Indian and also a Halloween party for retarded citizens. Dead men and red men Even though their theme party was dubbed the " Rigor Mortis Reunion, " the Chi Phis couldn ' t be classified as cold or stiff. Fraternity members were in- volved in several areas on cam- pus, with a growing interest in intramurals. " Softball is the fraternity ' s sports specialty, " according to Jerry Melton, Chi Phi vice president. The fraternity also made it to the semi-finals in football. " It ' s the first time in ten years that we did so well, " Mel- ton said. Chi Phi traditions included the Chi Phi calendar, with pro- ceeds going to muscular dys- trophy. The fraternity also held a Halloween party for Partlow patients. Other parties included In the spirit of the Delta Chi Indian party, brothers Benny McConnell, Tim Rohrer, Greg Ritchie, Alan Batson and Dan Thompson wreak havoc on an old car. The car cost S200 and was paint- ed black for the occasion. the Champagne Party that ac- companied the Chi Phi calen- dar distribution, several swaps, and an alumni banquet during Homecoming. The " Rigor Mortis Reunion " was a spring extravaganza, with the bands Pegasus and Sidewinder performing. The Delta Chi ' s spring party was also extravagant. The fra- ternity house became an Indian reservation as members donned feathers and body paint to go on the warpath. Keith Redman, a junior in en- gineering from Tuscaloosa, had his hair shaved in a Mohawk hair cut for the party. Redman had a problem explaining his hair to his parents until he showed them a picture in an old Corolla of his uncle who had a Mohawk haircut for the Indian party, too. The fraternity also spon- sored the Miss University of Alabama pageant, with all prof its going to the renovation of the Bama Theater. The pag eant was the largest prelimi- nary in the state for the Miss Alabama contest. Caria Car- ruth was crowned in the Febru- ary event. Other philanthropic activi- ties included a Halloween party at the Tuscaloosa Area Retard- ed Citizens Center and sending 20 handicapped children to see the circus with the Tuscaloosa Jaycees. They also held a Val- entine ' s Day party for the La Rocca nursing home in Alberta, complete with cake, punch and entertainment, according to ju- nior Gary Addicott. 71 — Susan Cullen Richard Washburn 308 Greeks: Chi Phi Richard Washbi v-hosen to represent the Chi Phis ' idea of a Homecoming queen, Garrett Jacl son, a human resources manage- ment major from Mobile, rides the float in drag with his Chi Phi escorts during the Homecoming parade.

Any undergrad- uate woman could apply for the scholarships according to Lucy Hirs, philanthropy chair- man. " We were very lucky to make enough to give two $500 scholarships this year, " Hirs, a sophomore in special educa- tion, said. " Leona Russell from Mobile and Jane Gomiilion from Andalusia received the scholarships. " The sorority also supported the St. Jude ' s Children Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. at Christ- mas time with Sleigh Bells. " Sleigh Bells is our annual Christmas luncheon at the Yacht Club. We charged one dollar to attend and the money went to St. Jude ' s, " Hirs said. The sorority also had a Mei Kong Delta swap with the Del- ta Kappa Epsilons. The frater- nity organized the swap as a Vietnam party. " The Delta Kappa Epsilon swap was fun, " Hirs said. " They fixed their house like a jungle. It ' s like you ' re in a real swamp. " " We decorated our party room in camouflage and dressed like soldiers, " Trent Boozer, a senior AKE in adver- tising, said of the party. " The best party, however, had to be the Undertaker ' s Ball, " Boozer said. " We started on Friday night when we had a wake and chose the dead man. " John Lyon, the dead man, got to choose his demise, ac- cording to Boozer. " He decided to be shot, " he said. " We have a eulogy where the preacher (a Richard ' ashbufn brother) tells stories, good and bad, about the dead man on Saturday and the dead man rises from the dead then. " " The next morning we take him away through the streets and mourn his loss. His date dresses in black with a veil and mourns, too. " " Our cook is a gospel singer and he and his group sang at our wake, " he added. The Ball is held every two years and is the " event of the year, " accord- ing to Boozer.

The Delta Tau Deltas also made a name for themselves as they went to the finals or semi-finals of all the sports events they participated in. First Place achievements They said they ' re number one and they had the awards to prove it. The Delta Sigma Phis placed first in the Pi Kappa Phi Bed Race, the float competition in the Homecoming parade and in the SGA campus beautifica- tion contest, according to Mike Jacobson, a senior from Sarato- ga, Ca. Bill Nally and Wai Ng, both sophomore engineers, built their own bed to race in the Pi Kappa Alpha bed race and won the event. " The Tide ' s Catching the Spirit " was the theme of the winning float during the Home- coming parade. On a flatbed truck, the fraternity construct ed waves that flowed over a Memphis State Player. The grounds of B.B. Comer Hail were prettier after the Del- ta Sigma Phis got their assign- ment for the SGA campus beautification contest. The fra- ternity worked on the land- scape around the building and received the award for the best job done by an organization, ac- cording to Jacobson. The pledge class of the Delta Tau Deltas made the year suc- cessful for the fraternity, ac- cording to Kevin Powell, a freshman engineering major from Memphis, Tenn. The pledge class built a bar in the basement and planned to finish a party room in the sum- mer. " The basement was just a storage area before, " Powell said. " Now we will have a stage for the bands and a party area with a bar. " The fraternity placed well in sports as they went to the fin- als in every sport they entered. The team lost in the semi-finals in football, and in the finals in soccer. The brothers sponsored a successful basketball team, the PARA Troopers, a wheelchair team.

" We celebrate Old South for a whole week with old-fa- sfiioned parties and traditions, " said Mike Sillers, a junior from Gadsden. The fraternity had a mint ju- lep party where the members and their dates watched the movie " Gone With The Wind. " They also held a sharecroppers ball.

The fraternity raised two truckloads of food for NOVA, a service organization, who dis- tributed the goods to local fam- ilies. Lambda Chi Alpha members also worked at the Canterbury Cathedral, cleaning up the church for Rev. Wooson before holiday services, according to Richard Mitrisin, vice president and a sophomore in marketing from Huntsville.

The Lambda Chi Alphas be- came known for their success- ful band parties. The band Ca- ruso from Atlanta, Ga. played after the Homecoming football game. " That band was fantas- tic, " Mitrisin said. In the spring, the band Little Saints played for the Luau par- ty. The fraternity also built a pond and put up a tower and decorated the house and back- yard with tiki torches. For the Phi Delta Thetas, the party of the year was the Hell ' s Angels theme party. " It was by far the best of the year, " Govan White, a senior in finance from Nashville, Tenn., said. " It ' s the only theme party we have. We don ' t believe in that theme stuff. " According to White, some people in past years have dressed as real Hell ' s Angels with pierced noses and shaved heads. Other important parties were the spontaneous Mudd Room parties that started " late one night and last until early the next morning, " according to White. Partying was not the only ac- tivity for the Phi Delta Thetas.

While the Phi Gamma Delta house became an island, the Phi Kappa Psi house became a historic landmark of the city. As one of three remaining fraternity houses from the ear- ly 1900 ' s, the Phi Kappa Psi house was entered in the Na- tional Register of Historic Land- marks.

As the sorority across the street from the fraternity, the Phi Mus had a quieter year in com- parison, winning best Homecoming decoration. Life on Colonial Drive Walking down on Squeal Day could have been danger- ous, especially if you walked past the Phi Signna Kappa house. Squeal Day was the day of the fraternity ' s annual TV drop where members tossed old tele- visions out the windows of their house. " This year we threw four out, " said Tony DiPasquale, a sophomore chemistry major from Merritt Island, Fla. " We do it mostly for attention. There are a lot of girls out that day running up and down the street. " The fraternity ' s " Colonial Drive Binocular Society " was also formed for girl-watching. " We look forward to spring rielping the Phi Mus with their Home- coming decorations, Timmy Cox, a ju nior in industrial management, and Dennis Fairchild, a senior in mechan- cial engineering, hang the airplane for " The Sky ' s the Limit with Bama Spir- it. " the Phi Mu theme. and the sunbathing season, " DiPhsquale said. " The roof of our house is covered with guys with their binoculars then. " The house wasn ' t all fun and games, however. The fraternity sponsored a Boys Club lunch for 25 under privileged area children in the spring, topping off the day with a visit to the University ' s aquat- ic center. In sports, the fraternity placed second in All-Campus golf. While Phi Sigma Kappas were tossing TV sets down- ward, the Phi Mus, their neigh- bors across the street, were sending a hot-air balloon up- ward for celebral palsy. " One of our sisters is a balloon- ist and she got her sister ' s bal- loon from Birmingham and we gave rides all afternoon, " said Susan Woodlief, a senior in cor- porate finance from Birming- ham. " It was a lot of fun an d profit able, too. The Theta Chis helped us with it. We usually do a Rock-A-Thon rocking chair marathon, but we thought this would be more profitable. " The sorority also won first place for their lawn decoration during Homecoming. " We had two airplanes on the front lawn, " Woodlief said. " One had Coach Perkins in it and the other had the other coach in it. And then there was a banner streaming over the porch saying ' The sky ' s the limit with Bama Spirit ' . " At Christmas time, the soror- ity hosted a Christmas dinner for boys from the Big Oak Boys Ranch. The sisters provided dinner complete with turkey and dressing and presents for each of the boys. Woodlief also read the Christmas story from the Bible to the girls and boys. " When it ' s all over, the boys don ' t want to go. They hug us goodbye and it ' s so sad, " Woodlief said.

Supporting groups like a settlement school in Tennessee and the Big Brother organization, both worked to raise money for the needy. Distinctly distinguished Could you spot a Pi Beta Phi from a mile away? Probably not. because membership was " based on individuality, " ac- cording to Anne Folger, Pi Beta Phi activities chairman. " Ev- erybody does their own thing, " she said. Pi Beta Phis " did their own thing " in a wide variety of orga- nizations on campus, from the Anderson Society to Tide Teammates. Academics were important as the sorority estab- lished an academic excellence committee. But, like all greek organiza- tions, the sorority made time for social activities. During the fall, a pledge formal was held at the L N Club and Halloween and Christmas parties helped celebrate the holidays. The sorority supported its national philanthropic projects, including a settlement school in Gatlinburg, Tenn., for Appa- lachian mountain children and the " Arrows in the Arctic-Cana- dian, " a philanthropy that es- tablished libraries in the Yukon and Northwest territories. Also lending a helping hand, the Pi Kappa Alphas helped in the Big Brother Little Brother program by holding a golf tour- nament and band party to raise funds for the organization. The fraternity was " instru- mental in chartering the local Big Brother Little Brother pro- gram, " according to Scott Brown, vice president of the fraternity. 1984 was a landmark year for the Pi Kappa Alphas as they celebrated their 60th anniversa- ry. The Garnet and Gold Ball, an alumni event, coincided with the anniversary celebra tion. The alumni helped break ground for the new two-story party room addition to the Pi Kappa Alpha house during the summer. " This is our biggest project in a while, " Brown said. In the spring, the fraternity held their annual bed race. " This was our most success- ful race ever, " Joe Parker, a junior in corporate finance from Eufaula, said.

Neighborly pursuits Pushing for their project, the Pi Kappa Phis held fund raisers for their national philan- thropy, Project P(JSH. Project P(JSH placed play units for the severely handi- capped in hospitals. In 1980, the Pi Kappa Phis supplied a $10,000 play unit for the pa- tients at the Partlow State Men- tal Hospital in Tuscaloosa. The fraternity had a window wash at University Mall where an area of the parking lot was blocked off and the windshields of the cars were washed by members. " As the people left the lot we asked for dona- tions, " Bob Summers, a junior in mechanical engineering from Birmingham, said. The annual Pi Kappa Phi Softball tournament was rained out twice, but the fraternity ' s spirits weren ' t dampened for they sold raffle tickets for prizes from Albertson ' s Grocer- ies and Pizitz. The Pi Kappa Phis donated $1,000 to Project PUSH. The big event of the spring semester was the Showboat weekend, according to Rodney Allison, a freshman medical technician major from Tampa, Fla. " The casino party on Friday night of that weekend was real successful, " Allison said. " Prizes were auctioned off with the chips won during the night as money. " The party of the fall for the Sigma Alpha Epsilons was the Stockholders ' Party. On Friday night, there was a black tie af- fair with a seven-piece swing band and casino playing for fake money. " We had to discontinue our ' Mo Regard ' Party of last year because the University didn ' t approve of some things that happend one year, " Pat Cope, a senior in political science from Montgomery and vice presi- dent of the fraternity, said. " We decided to have a Stock- holders ' Party to develop a positive image. " The pledges raised money for muscular dystrophy, when they ran with the Kappa Kappa Gammas from Bessemer to Tuscaloosa. The members ran in shifts of one mile and raised $3,000 through outside spon- sors. The fraternity also supported the Boys Club of Tuscaloosa. The members painted the club house in Alberta City and also had the boys over for lunch at their house once a year. " — Tara Askew Richard Washburn l!

" It ' s really a good feeling knowing everybody when you come back to school in the fall, " Reader said. " It ' s not like living in a dorm where you ' re not sure who ' s going to be where. " Across campus, the Sigma Chis raised money for the Tus- caloosa Bibb County Parks and Recreation Association. The fraternity sold tickets for the Wheelchair Warriors, a bas- ketball team for physically handicapped people. The big charity event was the Sigma Chi Derby, held ev- ery other year. Fraternities and sororities paid for participation in the Derby ' s activities and the proceeds went to the Wallace Village for Children.

The fraternity was about to begin renovating the house. Arson was not ruled out, but no cause for the fire had been determined by April. The fraternitymem- bers said damage from the fire and water made the house a " total lo ss. " Suddenly, homeless Arson was not ruled out as a cause of a fire ttiat almost destroyed tfie Sigma Phi Epsi- lon fraternity house early Tues- day morning, Feb. 28. Fire Marshall Leonard Robin- son said the house had been vacant for almost a year be- cause of the fraternity ' s plans to renovate. The electricity and gas had been turned off the en- tire time the building was emp- ty. No injuries were sustained by firefighters. About 5 a.m., the Tusca loosa Fire Department was called to the burning house by University Police when a patrol- ing officer spotted the fire, Rob- inson said. The firemen had the blaze under control soon after they arrived and extinguished it completely by 8 a.m., he ad- ded. Robinson said he was ham- pered in his investigation be- cause the basement was flooded from the water used to extinguish the fire. There was six feet of water in the base- ment when the fire was put out. and there was still two feet by T.xld Whispn.inl the end of the day, Robinson said. The cause of the fire had not been determined by mid-April. " Any time you have an emp- ty building with no juice hooked up to it, arson is going to be suspected. " Robinson said. Morris Painter, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, said the fra- ternity was almost ready to be- gin renovation of the building. He said their national organiza- tion was " behind them all the way, " and the loans for the pro- ject were almost secured. Joel Whitman, director of educational media and advisor to the fraternity, said renova- tion on the house was about to begin. He said the fire was the worst thing that could have happened to the fraternity. " The base- ment was renovated, as well as the wiring in the house. All the wiring was brought up to code, " he said. The basement ceiling and floor, as well as the rest of the walls, had a flame retardant, he added. " Everybody seemed to be getting their act together, " Whitman added. " We have to think about this as an opportu- nity to go on. This will show how much character we have or we lack. 1 think Sigma Phi Epsilon will come out of its ashes and be strong again. " Whitman does not know if the house was insured. " We transfered all the cocu ments to Richmond (Va., Sigma Phi Epsilon ' s national headq- quarters) because we planned to renovate, " Whitman said. " I ' m sure there ' s some sort of insurance on the house. " " Right now, we ' re meeting at Ferguson Center, " Robert Mer- kle, treasurer for the fraternity, said. " We ' re working with the contractor and architect to de- sign a new house. It should be big enough to hold 40 mem- bers. " " It ' s inconvenient, " Merkle, a junior accounting major from Faunsdale, said. " We were go ing to move in the house in the fall. Now we ' re going to have to wait.

These sterling achieve- ments, based on the drive, determination and will to suc- ceed and to be the very best possible, marked a very spe- cial year — a year of taking the wraps off.

That was the day Paul " Bear " Bry- ant stepped down as football coach of the Crimson Tide and Walter Ray Perkins stepped in. Perkins, a Petal, Miss., na- tive, was the coach of the NFL ' s New York Giants before he came back to his alma mat- er, 16 years after being one of " Bear ' s boys. " During Perkins ' playing years under Bryant, 1964-66, Bama won two national cham- pionships and compiled a three- year record of 30-2-1. Bama won the Southeastern Conference championship all three of his playing years and Perkins was selected All-Ameri- can and SEC Player of the Year in 1966 for his repeated acro- batic catches as a receiver for the Tide. Perkins, 42, played five sea- sons for the Baltimore Colts of the NFL, participating in two Super Bowls, before a knee in- jury shortened his career. From the pros, Perkins en- tered the coaching profession as receiver coach at Mississippi State in 1973. One year later, he became receiving coach for the New England Patriots. After four years (1974-77) with the Patriots, Perkins be- came offensive coordinator for the San Diego Chargers. In his only season in San Diego, the explosive Chargers led the NFL In passing yards and points scored. He became head coach of the New York Giants in 1979, and in three years led the Gi- ants to its first playoff berth in 18 years. The man with all the acco- lades accepted his biggest chal- lenge ever when he accepted the head coach position at Ala- bama. But as the 1983 season began, everyone wondered if he could be successful once again, whether he could replace " Bear. " " I ' m not chasing a legend, so It doesn ' t bother me when peo- ple say that, " Perkins said. " It was an honor to be considered for this job and a double honor to follow him. But I don ' t con- sider myself as filling his shoes or taking his place, and I ' m not dumb enough to try. " Many coaches would have preferred to be the " guy after the guy after Coach Bryant. " Coach Perkins accepted the challenge and it could quite possibly be many years and many Bama victories later that someone would prefer to be the guy after the guy after Perkins.

Sports Magazine 341 RSI A newly implemented, mandatory urine test for athletes was part of Athletic Director Ray Perkins ' Drug Crackdown It came as a surprise to many. Buck Johnson, one of the Tide ' s top basketball players, was suddenly sus- pended as the Tide entered the home stretch in a race for the SEC crown. Coach Wimp Sanderson was tight-lipped on the mat- ter, but when starting guard Eric Richardson was sus- pended right after Johnson rejoined the team, an expla- nation was needed. The reason — drugs. Both Johnson and Rich- ardson failed urine tests, in- dicating that they may have been taking some form of drugs. The testing was part of a new rule put in effect by Athletic Director Ray Per- kins requiring all athletes to submit to urinalysis testing for drugs. Perkins explained that the MCAA would most likely take steps in the near future to curb the alleged growing drug problem among ath- letes. Many pro athletes had been caught with drug prob- lems stemming from their newfound wealth and the pressures of pro sports. Many believed tendencies toward drug use began in college or even as early as high school and that the ear- lier action was taken to dis- courage the use of drugs, the better off students would be. With that in mind, Perkins implemented the testing pro- gram to show that Bama had nothing to hide and the process might serve as a model for the MCAA, should it ever decide to impose a testing program of their own. n — Kevin Hogencamp 342 Sports Magazine Chip Coopei h( foday Bama, Tomorrow The World The University made its irk on the international athle- world as 23 athletes and 3ches were to participate in ' . 1984 summer Olympics Id in Los Angeles.

Its importance in college athletics was enormous, and baseball, basketball and football coaches alike realized this importance. Strength coach Al Miller was the Tide ' s conditioning expert, presiding over the program for the University ' s whole athletic program. The third year coach tutored Tide athletes in musu- lar and flexibility development, a subject he researched exten- sively when not in the weight room. Miller, an El Dorado.

They traveled to Japan to the Tokyo Bowl with the basketball team, cheered on the football team at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, and last but cer- tainly not least, won the 1984 Ford College Cheerleading Na- tional Championship in Hawaii. Undoubtedly, coming home with the title of national champs was the highlight of the year. After the preliminary competitions and finals were over, Bama had topped 105 other squads to be decared " best in the nation. " The squad ' s three-minute routine consisted of a one-min- ute cheer, which featured a pyr- amid and a two-minute dance. Mascot Big Al also took part in the routine. The competition, a part of the festivities associated with the Hula Bowl, was sponsored by the Ford Motor Co. along with the Universal Cheerlead- ing Association. Schools first entered video tapes of their routines in pre- liminary competitions. Eight squads, four regional winners and four at-large teams, were then chosen as finalists and in- vited to Hawaii. Second place honors went to Louisiana State and the Univer- sity of Kentucky placed third. Kentucky beat Alabama in the Southeast Regional competi- tion to qualify for the nationals. The Alabama cheerleaders were chosen as an at-large team. Although many may have been surprised when the Tide was announced as the national champions, the squad was con- fident about their abilities. " We knew if we could hit everything right in our routine, we had a really good chance to win, " cheerleader Doug Rug- gles said. Ruggles said the feeling of wining was " indescribable, " and that all of the practicing " paid off. " " We practiced two or three hours a day from October, until the competition in January, " Ruggles said. " It was worth it. " Unlike other schools in the competition, Alabama had no outside help in choreography or composition. Cheerleader Julie Smelser made up most of the routine along with help from other squad members. One of the outstanding features of the winning routine was its smooth transition from cheer- ing to stunts to dancing. After winning the national championship, the squad re- laxed in Hawaii for a few days sightseeing and a visit to for- mer television star and Ala- bama alumnus Jim Nabors on his Hawaiian ranch.

Eleven Years And Still A Winner Success was the best word to use in describing Don Gam- bril ' s 11 years at the helm of the Bama swimming program. Alabama ' s swim mentor reaped some of the rewards of his illustrious career. After leading Bama to a 12-0 dual- meet record in 1983, Gambril was selected as coach of the 1984 United States Olympic swim team. Gambril ' s international ex- perience didn ' t begin in 1984.

" These were the words gymnastics coach Sarah Pat- terson used to describe the 1983-84 season. The year was a time of rebuilding for the team as five seniors were lost to graduation in 1983. Injuries during the year to sophomore Patti Rice and freshman Amy Hering provided set- backs. Despite the problems, howev- er, the team was able to finish sixth in the nation. Team captain Barbara Mack and Penney Hauschild led the team in the NCAA competition. Hauschild earned All-American status in the all- around with a fourth place finish, in bars with a second place finish, and in beam competition with a fourth place finish. Mack also earned All- American honors by turning in a sixth place showing in the beam with a 9.30 final score. Mack said that she became very -nervous during the MCAA finals when she had to compete against people she had looked up to and ad- mired. " I almost felt like I didn ' t belong there, " she said. The Tide had gone into the NCAA championship seeded tenth out of a field of ten. Coach Patterson said she had never anticipated a finish as high as sixth, and was quite pleased with the final ranking. " For our team of four freshmen, two sophomores, and one junior, it ' s an outstanding accomplishment, " Patterson said. Patterson said she felt the sixth place showing was a result of a uni- fied team performance. " We performed solid as a rock, " she said. " As a team, we hit more routines and gave better overall per- formances than any other squad on the floor. We were very proud of our effort and our talent. It was a very good year. " To qualify for the NCAA finals, the Tide captured first place overall in the regional competition held in Mis- souri. Freshman Julie Estin earned her highest score of the season and captured first in all-around with a 37.35 mark.

Julie Estin set a new individual floor re- cord in a meet against Missouri. The team bar record was broken in the final home met of the season. Penney Hauschild also broke the individual bars record of 9.65 with a mark of 9.75 in the same meet against Au- burn, Jacksonville State and Georgia College. Hauschild credited her record- breaking score on the bars to her ear- lier poor performance on the vault. " I got mad about the vault, " she said. " I compete really well when I ' m mad. " Hauschild went on to win first place in all-around in the meet. Julie Estin garnered second place in all- around honors and Barbara Mack earned third place. Patterson called the team ' s show- ing against Auburn, Jacksonville State and Georgia College, the best performance of the year up to that time. The meet was an important win for the Tide as Jacksonville State was ranked first among Division II schools. Meets on the road against Missouri and Louisiana State followed the fi- nal home meet and geared the team up for the regional and national championships. After the season was over, Coach Patterson said that 1984 was " two times more rewarding than last year " for her as a coach.

There were a few sad faces in the crowd at first as fans stared at the goalpost and realized that Paul " Bear " Bryant wasn ' t there, but Per- kins had them cheering in the end as the Tide began " a new era in Ala- bama football " with a 20-7 win over the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech. Bama struck early as Emanuel King hit Tech quarterback Stu Rog- ers from behind on the third play of the game. Rogers fumbled the ball as he was hit and Randy Edwards recov ered it at the Yellow Jacket 20 yard line. Three plays later, Walter Lewis hit running back Joe Carter with a 15-yard pass and the Tide had a 70 lead. Van Tiffin, a freshman walkon, got the nod as starting placekicker and scored a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter and tallied a 45- yarder in the third quarter to put the Tide up 13-0. The defensive unit closed the Tide ' s scoring for the day late in the third quarter when linebacker Todd Roper broke through the line and blocked Ron Rice ' s punt. Stan Gay scooped up the loose ball and scam pered 32 yards to put the score at 20- late in the quarter. K nOiQifiQ in to put the pressure on Georgia Tech quarterback Stu Rogers (4) is Bama tackle Jon Hand (78). Rogers rushed his pass attempt and left it incomplete and the Tide defense shut down the Yellow Jack- ets 20-7 in the season opener in Birmingham. The Yellow Jackets avoided a shutout when Robert Lavette slanted into the end zone on a one-yard run early in the final period. After the game, Perkins, who had been trying to downplay all of the hoopla surrounding his debut, looked relieved as he talked with reporters. Tm glad to get this first game under our belts and I ' m glad it was a victory. We can get on with it now; we can go from here with a chance to get better each week, " Perkins said. As for his feelings as he ran onto the field for the first time as head coach of the Crimson Tide, Perkins said, " They were the same as when I got on the bus coming up here last night. I was in his seat and today I felt like I was walking out on his field. I wanted to win this game more than any I ' ve ever been associated with " A week later the Tide made its debut in Bryant-Denny stadium and the Southeastern Conference as it downed the Ole Miss Rebels 40-0. The shutout was the first by the Tide since 1980 when it blanked Ten- nessee 27-0 in Knoxville. The shutout was even more surprising to Ole Miss, for it snapped an SEC record 70-game scoring streak. The Rebels hadn ' t been shut out since Oct. 30, 1976, when the LSCI Bengals won 45- eight years earlier. Bama started its scoring barrage on its first possession, paced by the running of Linnie Patrick and Joe Carter. It took the Tide only 10 plays to drive 67 yards for the first TD, with Carter getting the score from one yard out. Bama added touch- downs by Craig Turner on a one-yard run. Carter on a 20-yard pass and Walter Lewis on a five-yard run as well as a 45-yard field goal by Van Tiffin to take a 31-0 lead at the half. The Tide added two more points in the third period when Rebel tight end Greg Walker fumbled the ball in his own end zone and fell on it for the safety. Freshman Greg Richardson capped the scoring with a thrilling 62 yard punt return touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the 40 point rout. Quarterback Walter Lewis turned in one of his most impressive perfor- mances of the season as he connect- ed on 13 of 15 pass attempts for a team record .867 percent completion rate. That broke Ken Stabler ' s record of 16 of 19 or .842 percent set in 1966 against, oddly enough, Ole Miss. " We were more relaxed today, " Lewis said. " We still have room for improvement and we ' ll have to work to get ready for Vandy now. Our de- fense was excellent though. We like those goose eggs on the scoreboard. The other guy can " t get the upper hand. We can ' t let that happen if we win. It ' s going to catch up with us sooner or later. The fourth quarter has to be long to us or we ' ll pay the price by losing.

The Tide rallied, though, to tie the score at the half and then chipped in 27 more in the second half to take home a 44-24 victory. " All week long.

Bama got the ball once more in the half, and Lewis used it to tie the score on an 1 1-yard run with only :05 remaining. Linnie Patrick, Joe Carter and Ricky Moore each added TDs in the second half and Tiffin booted two more field goals, tying Bill Davis ' re- cord for most points k icking in a game with 14 (set in 1973 against, ironically, Vanderbilt), to give the Tide its 44-24 win. " We told the team at halftime that there were 30 minutes left in the game and that we would have to go out and play all 30 minutes like the University of Alabama football team, " Perkins said. " Give them credit. It was a great second half for our squad. " Having survived a scare in Nash- ville, Tenn., the Tide returned to the friendly confines of Bryant-Denny Stadium for what was expected to be an easy Homecoming game with the Memphis State Tigers playing the patsy. The Tigers had other plans, though, and took a 10-3 halftime lead before being pounded in the second half as the Tide stormed back for a 44 13 win. Memphis State drew first blood with a 27-yard field goal in the first quarter and then went up 10-0 in the second quarter when Ricky Spark man caught a four yard TD pass from Tiger quarterback Danny Sparkman. The restless Tide fans finally got something to cheer about when Tif- fin hit a 42-yard field goal with 1:31 remaining in the first half to pull the Tide within seven. On the second play of the third quarter, Randy Edwards hit Tiger fullback Joel Woods, forcing a fum ble which was recovered by Mike Rodriguez at Memphis ' 11 -yard line. Three plays later Lewis found Joey Jones crossing through the endzone for a seven-yard scoring strike to tie the score at 10-10. Bama added 14 points in the third quarter on a one-yard run by Lewis and a two-yard plunge by Linnie Pat rick to take a 24-13 lead. Lewis then contributed two touch- down passes — the first a 36yarder to Greg Richardson and the other an eight-yard shot to Joe Smith. Tiffin added two field goals, in- cluding a school record 51 -yard shot with 31 seconds remaining, to give the Tide a 44-13 victory. Tiffin ' s field goal broke the old record of 50 yards set by Buckey Berry against LSCl in 1975. Some fans questioned Perkins ' de- cision to let Tiffin kick the final field goal with only seconds remaining and the victory already assured, most notably Tiger coach Rex Dock- ery. " I hope they got enough points, " Dockery said in the lockerroom after the game. " There ' ll be other days down the road. They ' ve got to come to Memphis in two years. " Perkins defended his decision, say- ing " We were planning to run the clock out at the end of the game but we had a chance to kick a 51-yard field goal and I wanted to let Tiffin kick one from that distance. He might have to kick one next week from that distance to win the game with three seconds to play. " As Perkins explained how the Tide scored so many points in the second half, the players were trying to figure out why they didn ' t score more in the first half. " It was like a slap in the face, us being behind to them, " Mike Rodri guez said. " We don ' t like getting slapped in the face by anybody " Hardy Walker echoed Rodriguez ' s comments, adding " we have got to quit this getting behind early.

Patrick, who had 51 yards in the first half, recorded 17 yards as he set up the Tide ' s first touchdown. The Lions roared back, however, and chalked up a 34-28 victory for the Tide ' s first loss of the season. With nowhere to go but up, freshman Kerry Goode (35) dives over Lion defensive back Ray Isom (22) early in the fourth quar- ter to give the Tide its second touchdown of the game to cut the Lions ' lead to 20. Bama scored two more touchdowns, but fell short in its comeback bid, losing a heartbreaking 34-28 decision to the defending [National Champions. Richard Washburn 358 Football: Penn State, Tennessee Kf v rT f (Jnfortuately, getting behind caught up with the Tide as Penn State ' s Nitany Lions grabbed an early lead and then held on through a tor- rid attack in the fourth quarter to record a controversial 34-28 win in University Park, Pa. The defending national champions came into the game with a 1-3 record but a record crowd of 85, ' 614 crammed into Beaver Stadium to see the game. It looked as if Penn State ' s prob- lems would continue as Bama drove 88 yards to take an early 7-0 lead. On the next play, however, Lion quarterback Doug Strang hit his tight end for an 80-yard touchdown pass and the first seven points of a 34 point onslaught. The Lions led 17-7 at halftime and then doubled their score in the third quarter to take a commanding 34-7 lead into the fourth quarter. " You think of ways to get back in it, " Lewis reflected. " You ask your- self, " are you going to give up or fight to win? ' We put ourselves into that situation and we had to bail our- selves out. " So, with the Penn State fans al- ready celebrating, Lewis started bail- ing. Lewis led the Tide 87 yards for the Tide ' s second TD, a one-yard run by Kerry Goode. The defense held and Lewis teamed with Jesse Bendross for three passes, the last being a 24-yard touchdown shot, to bring the Tide within 13. The defense again held the Lions to three plays and Bama had the ball back at its own 22. Lewis passed and ran 78 yards with Bendross taking the eight yard scoring pass to bring the Tide within six with 5:32 to play. The Lions regrouped and drove to the Bama 26 where, faced with fourth and 13, they chose to try a field goal. Stan Gay, senior cornerback, broke through the line and blocked the kick. Bama recovered the ball at its own 49 yeard line with 2:56 to complete the comeback. The Tide drove as far as fourth and goal at the Lion ' s four and then disas ter struck. Lewis spotted tight end Preston Gothard cutting across the back line of the endzone and fired. The pass was high but Gothard pulled it in, landing on his back in the endzone with what appeared to be the game tying touchdown as time expired. Back Judge Walter Lucas signaled the pass incomplete, however, and Gothard ' s catch was taken away. The Lions were called for an off- sides penalty, and although no time remained on the Beaver Stadium clock, Penn State was penalized two yards and Bama had one more shot at the win. Perkins called a play, toss — 28, in which Lewis pitches to a back who then attempts to go around the right end, a play which had gained six yards per try that day. This time, Goode took the pitch, but was met at the line by two Lion defenders and Penn State claimed a 34-28 victory. A disappointed and rather tense Perkins was reluctant to discuss the controversial play that cost the Tide an apparent win. " From where I stood it looked like he had it. Our players said he had it. The referee said he didn ' t have it, " Perkins said. But the players couldn ' t sit by and think about what could have been. " Last year the loser of the game was the national champion. We have to go out and work at practice and get ready to outhit Tennessee next week, " senior Randy Edward s said. That didn ' t happen, however, as the Tennessee Volunteers outhit the Tide 41 34 in the highest scoring Ala- bama-Tennessee game ever. The Tide struck first, driving 80 yards on its first possession to take an early 70 lead on Joey Jones ' re- ception of a 31 -yard Walter Lewis pass. Tennessee roared right back to tie the score on an 80-yard pass from Alan Cockrell on the Vols ' first play from scrimmage. Both teams added touchdowns in the first quarter, Bama ' s coming on a three yard run by Ricky Moore. Tennessee pulled ahead 17- 14 on a 28 yard field goal but the Tide added 10 points on a touchdown by Lewis and a 25-yard field goal by Tiffin with one second on the clock to put the Tide ahead 24-17 at the half. Both teams scored twice in the third period, with the Volunteers get- ting two touchdowns to the Tide ' s six yard touchdown run by Moore and 26yard field goal by Tiffin and the Tide clung to a 34-31 lead entering the fourth quarter. Tennessee blanked the Tide 100 in the final period to take a 41-34 upset victory. " " We ' ve been playing a lot of young people — a lot of freshmen, " Perkins said. " " I still think we have a fine foot- ball team. It ' s a matter of bearing down as a team. We will find out what we are made of. If we ' re made out of something good inside, we will react in a good, positive way. " " I just don ' t know what hap- pened, " quarterback Walter Lewis said. " We should have won, but something just didn ' t click. We ' ll get it together, though. We ' ll pull it out. But we ' ve got to get control early and keep it. We must dominate all the way through to win. " " They ' ve got to get it together, " said Tide fan Gene Barson of Bir- mingham. " They can ' t keep letting the other fellow get the upperhand at all. They ' ve got to be the bosses. " SLXJQy in intense concentration, freshman nose guard Curt Jarvis (85) pre- pares to take on Lion center Nick Haden (58).

Sports: Penn State, Tennessee 359 Faillag Having given up 75 points in two games, the Tide defense was pre- pared to tighten up as Emory Ballard marched to Bryant-Denny Stadium with his Mississippi State Bulldogs. Just as doctor Perkins prescribed, the Tide limited the Bulldogs to only one touchdown as it triumphed 35- 18. Tide center Wes Neighbors was keyed up prior to game time, insist- ing that the game was an important one. " We need to get the confidence back we had at the beginning of the season, " he said. " Our number one objective from a defensive standpoint was to stop giv- ing up 80-yard plays, " Perkins said. " We did that, now we can go on to step two. Offensively, we executed some things pretty well. I think when we go back and look at the films we ' ll see that we were close to having an outstanding day. " What Perkins saw on the films was a Tide explosion offensively as it racked up 460 yards total offense. The Tide defense outplayed State ' s defense, but still relinquished 403 yards. Thanks to first half touchdowns by Bama fullback Ricky Moore, and halfback Linnie Patrick, the Tide en- tered intermission with a slim 14-12 lead. In the third period, Moore slammed for four more of his game- leading 106 yards for his second six- pointer of the day, and the Tide led 2112. Junior end Preston Gothard countered another Cosby field goal with a 25-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Walter Lewis to put the Tide comfortably ahead 28- 15 after three quarters. Lewis became the first Tide per- former to reach 5,000 yards career total offense, as he chalked up 229 yards throwing and 20 rushing yards against the baffled Bulldogs. Perkins was obviously pleased with the Tide effort and optimistic about the future. " I ' m happy for the players and proud to have an oppor- tunity to work with a great bunch of individuals, " Perkins said in the dressing room. " I can ' t imagine a greater group of young men to work with anywhere. The LSU Fighting Tigers and an appearance on regional television were on the agenda as the Tide trav- elled to the Bayou for their annual revolution the next weekend. When the dust cleared and the- players were pulled apart, 58 points had been recorded — the most ever in a single game between the schools — and Bama had secured its sixth victory of the season against two losses with a 32-26 triumph. The Tide once again was plagued with the big-play disease as the Ti- gers struck early on an 80-yard bomb from Jeff Wickersham to Eric Mar- tin. Later, freshman outside lineback- er Cornelius Bennett crashed through the Tiger front, blocked a punt, scooped the ball up, and scam- pered 48 yards to score his first colle- giate touchdown and tie the score 7- 7. The Tide scored once in the sec- ond quarter, capping a 69yard drive with a four-yard Lewis-to-Moore touchdown pass. Juan Betanzos ' 36- yard field goal trimmed the Tide lead to 14-10 as the teams entered inter- mission. The pace slowed in the third-quar- ter, gearing up for a nail-biting fourth period, as Van Tiffin ' s 25-yard boot provided the only points. Early in the fourth stanza, corner- back Stan Gay intercepted a Wicker- sham pass at the LSG 32. Eight plays later, Joey Jones snatched a 4-yard pass just inside the end line in the end zone and Bama led 24-10. The Tigers plunged right back, however, with a touchdown and a two-point conversion and trailed by only six points before Bama ' s Ricky Moore took control. With the help of an angry offensive line, Moore ran and caught the foot- ball for 39 yards in the next series and the Tide scored a game-clinching TD on Kerry Goode ' s one-yard plunge. LSG struck back for another touchdown and two-point conversion but by then it was too late.

A special victory it was as the Tide notched win number 600 in the school ' s 89-year football history. One year earlier. Southern Miss had paraded right into Bryant-Denny stadium and snapped the Tide ' s 57- game Tuscaloosa winning streak. Tide running back Joe Carter remem- bered the game vividly. " They broke the streak that we and all of the teams in the past had going, " he said. " 1 think that is the biggest revenge factor. " The Tide ' s senior-led defense over- came a game-opening 96-yard kickoff return by freshman Vincent Alex- ander and stifled the Eagles on the next four plays. Southern Miss couldn ' t budge the much-maligned defense as the Tide once again notched one of their patented goal line stands. " The defense set the tempo of our game with Southern Miss in the first five minutes, " Coach Perkins said in the post-game interview. " I thought it was a big series when we kept them out of the end zone from inside our five-yard line. It gave us a big, big boost. " Senior defensive tackle Randy Ed- wards, leader of the Tide stand, Richard Washburn echoed Perkins ' sentiments. " In the first series, their offense was saying, ' Hey, we ' re gonna kill you. ' But talk is cheap. After we stopped them, they stopped talking. If they had scored in that first series, it would have definitely given them the mo- mentum. But instead, we shut them up. " Following the Eagles ' misfortune on their first possession. Bama im- mediately drove 95 yards to score. Junior fullback Ricky Moore, en route to his third consecutive 100- yard-plus game, capped the drive with a one-yard surge and Bama led 7-0. Following Sam DeJarnette ' s 7- yard second-quarter dash into the Tide end zone, tying the score 7-7, Bama took the lead for good 14-7 on an 11-play, 57-yard drive. Running back Linnie Patrick leaped one yard to climax the Tide march. Two straight third-quarter field goals by the Eagles ' Steve Clark closed the gap to 14-13. A 32-yard TD scamper by Kerry Goode, howev- er, set the remaining pace, and the Tide cruised to a 28-16 victory. Foxboro, Mass., was the site of the next Tide struggle in the form of Li- berty Bowl bound Boston College Ea- gles. Turnovers, cold winds, and icy rain plagued the two teams and 19th ranked Boston College survived with a 20-13 victory on national television. " We handed them the win, " a dis- appointed Coach Perkins said, after the Tide fumbled twice in the fourth quarter, leading to two Eagle touch- downs and a 20-13 BC triumph. The two teams played evenly through the first half, with Bama con- necting on two Van Tiffin field goals and the Eagles adding a touchdown but no extra point. Tiffin broke the single-season scoring record by a Tide place-kicker with his 79th point of the season when he notched a 28- yard field goal, his second of the game. The old standard was held by former Tide star Alan McElroy. In the third quarter, Alabama re- gained the lead when defensive back Paul Tripoli broke through the Eagle line and blocked John Mihalik ' s punt. Outside linebacker Anthony Smiley promptly scooped the ball up and motored 58 yards for the first touch- down of the game. Consecutive fourth-quarter touch downs by Boston College fullback Bob Biestek following Tide fumbles gave the Eagles a 201 3 win. Bestiak ' s five-yard reception from quarterback Doug Flutie at 6:29 tied the game and his three-yard run with 5:06 remaining gave Boston College the fourth quarter victory in their own snowy Massachusetts back yard home stadium in chilly Foxboro.

The win was the first bowl victory for Coach Ray Perkins. Filling The season was drawing to a close and, as always, the " Iron Bowl " was the only thing between the Tide and a bowl appearance. The Iron Bowl, however, featured the 7-3 Tide as the underdog as 9-1 Auburn was riding high in the national polls. One of the hardest deluges to ever hit the Birmingham area didn ' t stop Plainsman running back Bo Jackson as he crushed, dodged, and sprinted for 256 yards on only 20 carries, two touchdowns, and a 23-20 Auburn vic- tory. The Tigers scored first after a scoreless first quarter when Jackson, a sophomore AllAmerican, reversed his field to the right after being stacked up by the Tide defense and slashed 69 yards for a 7-0 Tiger lead. Bama marched back immediately as senior quarterback Walter Lewis and Joey Jones connected on a 20- yard touchdown play. Following Tiger Al Del Greco ' s 29- yard field goal, the Tide migrated 80 yards in 12 plays as Lewis threw for his second touchdown of the after- noon. Forty-six seconds remained in the half when running back Joe Carter grabbed the Lewis pass and Bama grabbed a 14-10 lead. Two more Del Greco field goals early in the third period (26 and 34 yards) gave the Tigers a 16-14 lead. But Alabama fullback Ricky Moore, on his way to his fifth straight 100- yard-plus contest, broke the Tiger de fensive front and galloped 57 yards on a draw play which caught the Au- burn defense in a blitz. Freshman Kerry Goode put on a show of his own, scampering for 142 yards. Goode and Moore became the first backs to crack the 100-yard bar- rier against the Tigers all season. " We ran the play perfectly, " Moore recalled. " All I had to do was run through the hole. The offensive line did a g reat job all day long. " One play later, Jackson scored his second TD on a 71yard run, giving Auburn its first SEC title since 1957. The rains hit hard in the fourth quarter, neither team could penetrate on the mud-ridden field and Auburn hung on for a narrow 23-20 decision. " I was proud of the way our play- ers fought and battled even though we came up short and lost, " Perkins said. " They played their hearts out. " We played a fine football team and lost. Give credit to Pat Dye and his staff for what they ' ve accom- plished over the three years they ' ve been there. They have a lot to be proud of. " Senior defensive tackle Randy Ed- wards was voted Alabama ' s " Most Valuable Player " by ABCTV in the " Iron Bowl " classic. An invitation to the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, to play 101 Southern Methodist, marked Bama ' s record 25th consecutive bowl appearance. It was Bama ' s fifth television appear- ance of the season and its third straight game played in miserable weather. Twenty-four degree weather and 35-miles-per-hour winds set the scene in the usually mildweatherd Sun Bowl. Coach Perkins ' first bowl appear- ance as a coach was important as a loss would give Bama its worst re- cord since a 6-51 showing in 1970. The determined Bama squad more than redeemed its four last minute losses in 1983 and shellacked the Mustangs 28-7. The Tide offense struck the SMG defense for four first-half touch- downs as Bama built a 280 lead. The Bama offensive line dominat- ed the Mustang front, providing " Most Valuable Player " Walter Lewis plenty enough time to throw the foot- ball. The Tide senior engineered drives of 59, 51, 91 and 72 yards. " I had a real great feeling going into that game, " senior split end Joey Jones said. " We had a great offense. Ricky Moore ran well, the offensive line played great. Every- thing clicked. " Lewis sparkled statistically, com- pleting nine of 12 passes for 148 yards, leading the Tide to 303 first half total yards. In the second half, the Tide coach ing staff switched to a strategy of ball control. The usually air-minded offen- sive attack threw the ball only twice in the final 30 minutes. " I felt we could run the football, but I thought we threw it well when we had to, " Perkins said. " The first half was about as good a half as we have played all year. " Some SM(J players had made it known that the Sun bowl invitation with the Tide was a letdown, as the Mustangs carried a 6th-place nation- al ranking to El Paso. Tide cornerback Sammy Hood, however, said the Tide attitude was the difference between the two teams. " I think we performed better today than we had all year. We had a lot of intensity, " Hood said. " Today was an old Alabama team playing in the old Alabama form.

On April 14, the annual A-Day game, only Steak Avas at stake p rior to coach Ray Perkins ' sec- ond A-Day game, fans poured onto the field for autographs and pictures, all part of Fan Day, yet another Perkins ' innovation at Bama. Perkins was naturally the most popu- lar figure at the event. Perkins played spectator and let his staff do the coaching. Assistant coaches Rockey Felker and Sylves- ter Croom headed the Red and White teams, respectively, while Perkins observed from the press box. At stake for the winners was just that — steak. The losing team re- ceived a puny portion of chopped beef and the embarrassing responsi- bility of serving the winners. The in- centive to win was therefore enor- mous. The White team, composed of Ba- ma ' s first-team defense and second- team offense, prevailed 7-3 in a de- fensive-minded struggle oversha- dowed by spring injuries to several key players. Before the White team could get the " beef, " however, an old-fa- shioned goal-line stand was in order. With less than a minute remaining in the game, the Red team, com- Frank Morgan prised of the Tide ' s first team-offense and second-team defense, had man- aged a first and goal from the three yard line. The drive began at the White 31 -yard line following a John Lombardo interception. Sophomore Kerry Goode, the prin- ciple ground-gainer in the drive to the three, got the call once again on first down. He gained two yards and the Red had second and goal from the one. Red coach Felker called the same play, a dive, on second down, but the White defense had steak on its mind. The crowd was on its feet for the first time in the game as the Red team lined up on the third down. Goode made his dive once again but this time the football was jarred out of his hands before Red quarterback Hugh Smith recovered it at the sev- en. " We were trying to create a new line of scrimmage, two yards on the other side, " White leading tackier Jon Hand said. " We ' ve been working hard all spring, and this was a chance to prove it. " On fourth down they did prove it as the White defense batted down a Smith-to-Preston Gothard pass. The goal line stand, all in the final minute of the game, was of course not the only action of the contest. Both defensive squads, however, pro- vided most of the action as they re- peatedly stifled the offensive teams. The Red and White offenses com- bined for only 248 yards, 14 pass completions, and 1 17 passing yards. The glory (that is, the steak) went to the White defense. Junior defen- sive tackle Brent Sowell earned the annual Dixie Howell Memorial Award as the game ' s " Most Valuable Play- er, " Tackle Jon Hand received the honor in 1983.

But that was somewhat deceptive as Bama lost 15 points when the 400 meter relay team of Calvin Smith, Emmit King, Walter Monroe and Lamar Smith were disqualified for an ex- change game violation during the race. Prior to the meet, they were the top ranked relay team in the nation. Part of the reason for their success was the running ability of sprinters RKhar.i Washburn Smith and King.

Smith ran the race in 9.93, shattering the old mark of 1.95 set by Jim Mines in the 1968 Olympic games. Right behind Smith was former SEC 100 meter champion and All- American King. King and Smith of- ten finished one-two in races and such was the case in the SEC and NCAA championships. While Smith nailed down the SEC title.

But it took a lot of hard work and dedication, with each team member contributing and giving moral sup- port throughout the season. There were five others who de- served much of the praise that came with success, including assistant coach Roger Smith and graduate as- sistants Steve Fleming, Jones Tubb and Dick Wiggins. But it was head coach Barry Shol- lenberger who directed the team to- ward its winning season. Shollenberger came to the (Jniver- slty in 1980, and except for his first year, the coach was able to put to- gether winning seasons. In 1981 and ' 82, Shollenberger ' s teams went to the Southeastern Conference play- offs. Both years Alabama was sent packing after only two games. But things changed in 1983. The third time proved to be the charm, and the Crimson Tide sent the others home. What made this team different from the others? Mo one really knew, but Shollenberger said if he had writ- ten a script for the season, the team couldn ' t have followed it any closer. When one of the characters was going through a batting slump, some- one else got hot and took up the slack. If a pitcher seemed to be inef- fective, someone else found his fast ball moving better, his curve sharper and his slider breaking harder. The right strings were pulled at the right time.

" Physically, we had a good team. We knew that. We started off well, and we never felt we were so good we became overconfident, " he said. The fifth year coach credited Mis- sissippi State with much of the Tide ' s humility. MSG managed to stay ahead of Bama throughout the season until it finally stumbled at the SEC playoffs and lost the title to Shollenberger and company, 10-9. It was the first title for the Tide since 1968.

Sports: 1983 Baseball 373 Road The season got under way Feb. 24 with a victory against North Ala- bama, it was the beginning of a five- game winning streak that included an 8-2 victory over South Alabama, also an NCAA regional contender. Bama had several winning streaks. Perhaps the most memorable was the 15-game streak that began April 30 and continued until the first loss to Texas in the College World Series on June 9. This surge came at a very opportune moment — the end of the season. " Early in the season we weren ' t pitching like I thought we would, " Shollenberger said. " But our pitching came around at the right time. " He said it wasn ' t anyone in particu- lar, but " it was all the way across the board. " At season ' s end, the Tide basically had three starting pitchers: Rick Browne, Alan Dunn and Dean Hayes. The bullpen proved to be tough with Tim Meacham and Troy Brauchle leading the way. It amassed 18 saves, breaking the school record of 14 which was set by the 1981 team. Brauchle sported a 5-4 record and had 12 saves, setting a school record in 32 appearances. His ERA was 2.64.

Intensely studying the pitcher, catcher Mark Edwards awaits his turn to in- flict more damage as the Jaguars of South Alabama were crushed 1605, upping Bama ' s record to 8-2. " Troy was the best pitcher on our team from day one to day end. He was the most consistent, " Shollen- berger said. " We only used him when the game was on the line. " The other bullpen ace, Meacham, made 22 appearances and main- tained an undefeated record of 7-0 with four saves. His hard work earned him an ERA of 2.39. But Browne, Dunn and Hayes were the Tide ' s real strength on the mound. Hayes, a senior, had a sparkling 1 1-2 record even though his ERA was slightly high at 4.95. Hayes was the winning pitcher in the Tide ' s 6-4 vic- tory over 1982 defending champs Mi- ami (Fla.) at the NCAA regionals. Browne also had an impressive re- cord of 11-2 with an ERA of 3.80. This average earned him a free agent contract with the Cleveland Indians. The Tide also lost the services of Gadsden ' s Dunn. The native Alabam- ian was drafted in the fourth round and signed with the Detroit Tigers. Dunn and Meacham combined their services to record a shutout of Arizona State in the College World Series. It was probably the most un- usual game of the year for Alabama. Dunn, who in his freshman year led the nation in strike outs per inning, had a lot of trouble controlling the ball. However, it didn ' t seem to hurt as the Tide won 6-0. Dunn threw either definite strikes or obvious balls. In all the commo tion, the sophomore went over four innings, faced 20 batters, threw 102 pitches and walked eight men. He gave away only one hit and didn ' t allow any Arizona batters to cross home plate. State batters said they had gotten too complacent and sat back and waited for ball four. Usually though, Dunn reached back and threw strike three or got a ground out. While the Tide ' s pitching seemed to be the main topic during the play- offs, Alabama did not have problems in the batting department either. At the end of the season, the Tide had not been shut out of a game. Indeed, they never scored less than two runs in a game. Offensively, Bama was led by Da- vid Magaden. The junior from Tampa, Fla. practically rewrote the entire Alabama record book. He was tops in the nation, batting at a .525 clip.

Magadan was a vital influence on the team at the SEC playoffs where he was selected as the MVP During the tournament, Magadan went 10-11 (a .909 average) knocked in 12 runs and was walked intentionally three times. Although Magadan did have an ex- plosive regular season, his bat was quieted at the regionals. That ' s when Ted McClendon stepped in. McClendon ' s outstanding batting performance in the title game against Miami earned him the MVP award. His regional stats showed nine home runs (one more than he had hit dur- ing the entire regular season), and a four for five game against Miami. Two seniors, Rob Skates and Bret Elbin, played a big part in the Tide ' s success story Shollenberger described Skates as " a tough cookie, " and it was not an undeserved description The Huey- town native was known for hustling and putting his all into his perfor mance in the outfield. Skates also helped the team with a lively bat, averaging .342. Elbin, the Tide ' s third baseman, was lead-off man. He averaged .339 and broke two school records, scoring 88 runs and 66 walks. And still another leader emerged from the ranks of the Tide. Frank Vellagia, whom Shollenberger called the " vocal leader, " batted .324 while taking care of the catching duties. Listed as a senior. Vellagia found out at the end of the season that because the NCAA made the re-shirt rule retroactive, he had another year of eligibility and elected to stay with the Tide instead of signing with the New York Mets. " When I was being recruited out of high school, I kept getting letters from Alabama, " Dunn said. " No one knew Alabama had a baseball team then.

" That ' s the ulti- mate goal every year — to go to the World Series on Omaha " . The Tide certainly had that goal in mind when the team travelled to Georgia Southern March 28 and came home with several NCAA re- cords and a massive 35-11 victory over the Eagles.

The following day the Tide was eliminated in a 10-inning thriller by familiar foe Mississippi State and thus the season was over. " Inconsistent offensive produc- tion " is the phrase Shollenberger used to sum up the 1984 Crimson Tide baseball campaign.

The Tide ' s only setbacks came to Texas, who was ranked as the num- ber one team nationally heading into the NCAA tournament, and St. John ' s, who took a 75-72 squeaker. The women hit a slump, dropping four straight, before they collected themselves and bounced back to win seven of their last nine games. One of those losses was to SEC champ Georgia. At the end of the year, sophomore Carol Smith was named to the 1984 All-SEC Coaches Team. Senior Cas- sandra Crumpton was selected the most valuable player in the SEC Championship. Crumpton was named to the All-Tournament team at the Queens College Holiday Clas- sic and survived into the second round of the U.S. Olympic trials. Senior Terri Hillard completed four years on the Tide team and left the record book in shambles. She lead in four career statistical categories, in- cluding points, rebounds, steals, as- sists and most games played with 122 consecutive performances. Commenting on the fine individual performances. Weeks said Cassan- dra Crumpton was " one of the finest shooters in the SEC. " Weeks said he planned to keep scheduling tough teams in the future.

The Tide also lost by three points or less to Georgia Tech, Vandy, LSU, and Illinois State. The Tide roundballers finished the year with a respectable 18-12 record and came within a dozen points from having a banner season. The NCAA selection committee recognized the Tide ' s potential and extended Alabama an NCAA Tourna- ment invitation. The Tide ' s problems began before the season with the unexpected loss of dazzling guard Ennis Whatley. Whatley opted to trade his college shoes for those of a professional, after only two seasons with the Tide. Freshman guard Terry Coner, What- ley ' s eventual replacement, averaged 5.8 points and 2.4 assists a game.

During a stretch beginning with a 65-60 home victory over Geor- gia and ending with a 74-65 home victory over Ole Miss, the Tide was 9- 2. The stretch included two victories over Tennessee and a 69-62 whipping of eventual SEC champ Kentucky. After opening the season with five consecutive home victories.

Sports; Swimming 393 While the women struggled with a young squad, rookie men ' s coach Tommy Wade and his 1983 players were Raising a racket If first impressions are really the most important, first year tennis coach Tommy Wade should be a very happy man. In Wade ' s first year at the helm, the tennis team finished second in the Southwestern conference with an 8-2 record and a 20-4 record overall. The Tide ' s only SEC losses came at the hands of the LSCi Tigers, 2-7, and the Tennessee Volunteers, 3-6. One of the reasons for the teams ' success was sophomore Andy Solis. Solis, who was ranked as the top player in Florida in the IS-year-oid and under category prior to his sign- ing with the Tide, was rated for a strong backhand shot, according to Wade. Solis played in the number three position all season, compiling a 33-7 record, and advanced to the semi- finals of the SEC championships be- fore he was eliminated. Another netter that gave oppo- nents fits was junior transfer Mark Wilder, who chaulked up a 33-9 re- cord playing in the second position. Wilder, who earned All-America honors In junior college at Tyler, Tex as, and was the 1980 Alabama High School singles champion, also ad- vanced to the semifinals at the SEC tournament before being knocked out. When the action shifted to doubles play. Wade looked to his two letter- men from Sweden, Stefan Olssanand and Hans Carlssan. The Swedes, who recorded a 23-9 record in the number one position, attributed their compatability on the court to their long acquaintance and friendship to Sweden prior to their arrival here. " We understand each other and anticipate each other ' s movements, " Olsson said. Carlsson, who had a blistering serve which was clocked at 120 miles per hour, and Olsson came in second in the SEC, losing in the fin- als of the championships. While Wade was carving his niche on the second year coaching men ' s circuit, Peter Hefferman and the woman ' s team were trying to dupli- cate their 1981-82 27-17 record, the best of any Tide women ' s tennis team. Their goal, however, was left unat- tained as the squad of seven fresh- men, one sophomore, one junior, and one senior finished with an 18-17 re cord and a 2-6 mark in the SEC, good for ninth place. Freshman Lynn Cleary posted the best record of the women with a 19- 16 mark. Cleary, who attended McGill-Too- lin High School in Mobile, was the 1979 State High School Champion and Hefferman considered her to be " the best athlete on the squad. " Emily Duke, a freshman from De- catur and the team ' s only lefthander, was right behind Cleary with a 19 15 record. Despite their difficulties Heffer- man felt with a year of experience behind the team, the women netters would be a strong force in the SEC. — Margaret Johnson and Jim Smilie K bSCkhdnd down the Une was all Greg Hahn needed to polish off Brigam Youngs Mark Souza 6-3, 7-6.

That was not the case, however, as the players performed well, but the team results seesawed. " It was the most disappointing team of my career, " said head coach Conrad Rehling. " Despite the great individual record, the team didn ' t de- liver at critical times. " The season started with the Tide finishing eighth in both the Gater Invi- tational and the Seminole Classic. The team rebounded to win the Pan Handle Invitational and posted three second place finishes before an eleventh place finish at the Chris Schenhel Invitational. The team rallied at the end though, and captured second place at the SEC tournament. Individually, Steve Lowery led the way with a 73.1 stroke average In eight tournaments. Lowery won the Southern Intercollegiate and finished under part in seven of the eight tour- naments in which he played. Lee Rinker was next with a 73.6 stroke average in eight tournaments, and he finished under par in six of his appearances. Rinker also won the New Orleans Classic. The women ' s season was even more frustrating. " The talent was there, but the players didn ' t perform well as a team, " according to senior golfers Shelly Babb and Susan Ladd. The lady golfers ' best outing came at Troy State where they beat 10 other teams for the title. But aside from that match, the Tide ' s best fin- ish was fourth. " We just didn ' t have an aggressive enough attitude, " Babb said. Ladd was the team ' s best player, appearing in six tournaments and sporting a 77.9 stroke average. She received an at-large bid to compete in the NCAA championships at the (Jni- versity of Georgia, but was unable to compete due to injuries suffered in an auto accident. Babb was the team ' s second ranked golfer with a 79.1 stroke aver- age in six appearances. The lady golfers were unable to compete in the SEC championships because they were unable to field a full five-member team after two play- ers, Frances Dunn and Anne Helms, both freshmen, were injured in a car accident on the way to the game.

For head coach Tommy Wade, it was a tough season marked by close losses and injuries. The Tide compiled a 2-5 mark in the SEC, dropping heartbreaking 4-5 losses to both Tennessee and Ole Miss, two of the SEC ' s top teams, on the road. The Tide ' s top seeded players dur- ing 1984 were Andy Solis and Greg Hahn. Solid finished 25th and Hahn 38th in the final intercollegiate tennis standings. Rounding out the list of the Tide ' s top six players in 1984 are Mark Wilder, Stefan Olsson. Hans Carlson and Tripp Gordon. Hahn had the best record among Tide players with a 22-9 mark. Fol- lowing Hahn with the best individual record was Carlson (21-10), Solis (20,11), Wilder (19-12), Olsson (11- 12), Henner Lenhardt (10-12), and Gordon (7-10).

The doubles team of Solis-Hahn finished the 1984 campaign ranked No. 24 in the intercollegiate tennis standings. The records were somewhat mis- leading, however, as the SEC was one of the toughest leagues in the nation as six of the 10 men ' s teams in the conference were ranked in the top 17 nationally at the end of the season. In two seasons at the Capstone, Wade, formerly the tennis coach at h ' ichard Washbi Kentucky, has composed a record of 39-17.

Karen Gaiser replaced Hefferman by serving as interim coach, and led the Tide to a 22-16 overall record and a disappointing last place finish at the SEC Championships.

Morth on the Tennes- see River in Scottsboro, Saltpeter Cave once served as an Indian shel- ter. Later it became the first court room in Jack- son County. During the Civil War. Confederate soldiers mined saltpeter in the cave to use in mak- ing gunpowder.

The center sec- tion was built in 1851 after a disastrous 1849 fire the de- stroyed the original center structure. Plummeting 110 feet into the bottom of Little River Canyon located in DeSoto State Park near Fort Payne the DeSoto Falls is only one of the beauti- ful scenic sites. 1 Community Catalogue 403 « wajK COMMUNITY CA¥AL©(iyi 404 Community Catalogue It ' s Alabama The Beautiful And Alabama had more than just a " pretty face. " The state was a gold- mine of natual resources which encouraged and supported industry. Coal, iron ore and li- mestone were all found in most portions of Ala- bama. The area around Bir- mingham was especially rich in iron ore, supplying the city ' s steel industry. Most coal beds were lo- cated in the north-central part of the state, with most coal strip-mined. The mining areas were carefully restored after the mineral was removed to insure that nature was preserved. In Mobile, Escambia and other counties around the state, oil was becoming a more and more important natural resource as reserves were discovered, especially in the Mobile Bay area in the South. James Romza Other natural re- sources found in the state included barite, clay, do- lomite, graphite, marble mica, natural gas, salt, sand and gravel, sand- stone and talc. Almost 70 percent of the state was forest. The most common trees were pines, cypress, red cedar, hemlock and southern white cedar. Hardwood trees included oaks, sweet gums and yellow poplars. Manufacturing in the state accounted for over 75 percent of the value of goods produced in Ala- bama. Most of Alabama ' s manufacturing involved metals, chemicals and textiles. Blast furnaces, after several years of being closed during the reces- sion, were reopening to produce iron and steel again. In the Tri-Cities area of Florence, Shef- field and Tuscumbia, Reynolds Alumninum re- called employees to make alumninum pro- ducts again after their plant had been closed for several years. Most of the state ' s chemical production was still for farm use, espe- cially fertilizers and insec- ticides. Several textile com- panies maintained mills in the state — some to manufacture fabric and some to assemble gar- ments. Farming was still a ma- jor industry. Livestock, daily products and poul- try accounted for more than 80 percent of Ala- bama ' s farm income. Cotton, once " king " of Southern farming, ac- counted for an almost in- significant part of the state ' s farm income. More land was planted in corn and soybeans than cotton. The cotton that was planted was harvest- ed by mechanical pick- ers. Other farm crops in- cluded potatoes, wheat, hay, oats, beans, cab- bage, sweet corn and sweet potatoes. Fruit cr ops include strawberres, peaches, ap- ples, pears, plums, canta- loupes and watermelons. Mining and fishing were also important. Coal, petroleum, iron ore, and stone accounted for more than five percent of the total goods produced in Alabama while Ala- bama fishermen caught more than 25 million pounds of fish in the Gulf of Mexico. Shrimp, oys- ters, crabs, red snappers in salt water and catfish, mussels and buffalo fish in freshwater were the major catches. In the north, the Ten- nessee River, dammed by Guntersville, Wheeler and Wilson dams, provided much of the electricity for the area by the TVA.
