Each year the book has been reaching the students at a progressively later date. The 1967 yearbook, for instance, will not be in the hands of students until late January 1968. This is the sad state of affairs which we are trying to correct this year. We, of the 1968 staff, feel that the University of Alaska must keep pace with the rest of the universities and colleges ' Down Below ' and show them the pioneer spirit that has made our state unique. For this reason we are bringing out a four section yearbook in a modified magazine style. This approach will help us explore the university and its many related areas in a more complete manner. Not only will the DENALI be a photo album that carries the activities of the year, it will, we hope, help you better understand the workings of our university. We, of course, realize that a proposal to change the standard yearbook to a magazine style four-sectioned yearbook was voted down by the student body last year. However, we believe it was voted down because the proposal also carried the misunderstanding that this approach would eliminate class photos. This will not be the case. We will include these pictures in our fourth section. You will also receive a yearbook style cover in which you can put your magazine sections. The four sections and the binder will be in your hands before you leave in May. No longer will you have to wait almost a year and a half to receive the yearbook that you paid for in September. By changing our format we have been able to impose stricter deadlines and our staff has responded to the pressures admirably. A standard yearbook imposes no such pressure and the result is a mad rush to complete the book at the end of the school year. This rush not only delays the yearbook, but gives the book a sloppy, thrown-together look. We hope our new format will help eliminate both these faults. We want the students to be proud of our university. We want to give you a quality yearbook that you will be able to show your friends and not feel ashamed. We hope you accept this new format with an open mind and with a true Alaskan individualist approach, and that you will give us a chance to show you what we can do for you. We will appreciate any constructive criticism of this our first issue and hope that you will come in and talk with us so we can make our second issue an even better one. Richard R.

OUR From Tlingit Country to Eskimoland Wien Air takes you there WIEN ' AIR ALASKA When we talk of the University of Alaska we think of a hill in Col- lege near Fairbanks on which there are some buildings. But a closer look at our university will show that it is a vast complex organiza- tion with a campus that extends the breadth of the state. The University of Alaska spreads its influence throughout the state both physically and spirit- ually. We have research centers in agriculture, Arctic research, marine science and other centers which are scattered from Ketchikan in southeastern Alaska to Point Barrow, the northernmost town in the world. The university is a leader in Arctic environment research in the United States. It is vitally interes- ted in the physical and mental problems posed by the difficult and, at times hostile, living conditions that man faces in the far north. This is a vital field of endeavor since Alaska and its vast areas may have the potential to support some of the world ' s teeming popu- lation. The university is also spreading its academic and vocational influ- ence throughout the state. The six community college branches of the university are beginning to expand into fullfledged junior colleges. New buildings are slated to be con- structed in Anchorage, Juneau and Ketchikan. In the near future most young Alaskans will have the EXPANDING 9 AKTMENTOF j our Nausm ■ opportunity to live at home and attend two years of college before going on to continue their educa- tion. The Extension Services is also expanding its scope in the ur- ban areas in Alaska. The university ' s influence even spreads outside Alaska.

It is the end of the frenzied confusion of registration and orientation. A good-bye to high school and " teeny-bopper " days and congratulations on a successful ent- rance to college. Now begins the serious studying and real college days. AVMM WVWWV STEP INTO THE UNKNOWN ' 9 Margaret Walsh, better known as Maggie, arrived at the University not knowing quite what to expect. Of course all Freshman everywhere face that prob- By SANDY MOOR lem when they go to school, and Maggie had been to Fairbanks before quite often. But she had never received any official word of acceptance. Fairbanks had just suffered its worst flood in history, and at last word refugees were still in campus buildings. Her Aunt, Ann Walsh, who teaches in the University Home Ec. Dept. had to confirm her acceptance by telephone. The writ- ten acceptance must have washed down the Chena. Maggie had been accepted at Seattle Pacific University, but is Alaska born (Nome) and bred. Her grandfather was on the Board of Regents for the U of A, and Walsh Hall is named after him. She decided to stick to home. " I don ' t like Seattle, the big crowds scared me off. FRESHMAN... Though she has lived in Seattle as well as other poi nts South includ- ing Wake Island, she prefers the small town. Kotzebue is her home town. She went to boarding school in Copper Valley her last three years of high school, so leaving home and dorm life are nothing new to her. Nevertheless she felt completely lost on her first night here. " None of my old friends were around and I hadn ' t met anybody. " Just Maggie alone in a little room in a big dorm. ' People are friendly and helpful on campus, " Maggie says so it didn ' t take long to get acquainted. Maggie enjoys campus life and the new and different people she can associate with here. " Its re- markable, there are girls from the villages as well as from California in the dorms. I think talking with these different people broadens your horizons, but I ' m still not used to the hippies. We just don ' t have, anything like them in Kotzebue. " Registration was confusing, but she got through it without too much trouble, considering " I didn ' t know the profs or the buildings. " Her classes don ' t start until 10:00 or noon, depending on the day. Says Maggie " they should be earlier in the morning though, so .1 can get something done in the after- noons, I ' ll know better the next time. " As yet she is having no trouble with any of her courses--15 credits worth. She has no complaints about her professors and has talked with most of them out of class. " The 10:30 nights are fine with me, be- cause if I ' m in the dorm I ' ll study. " Maggie was a little disappointed in Frosh initiation. " I thought there would be a little more partici- pation from upper classmen. " She lives in Moore Hall and the few Freshman girls living there were kind of forgotten and passed over. " Preparing for the bonfire was fun, making the dummy and keeping it from the Sophomore girls, but nothing happened at the bonfire. I expected singing or yelling or something, but everybody just looked at it. " Maggie admits she still doesn ' t understand ASUA, or who or what Senators are for. Nor does she know what organizations exist on campus or their purposes. Physical therapy is Maggie ' s major, so she must transfer to Seattle Pacific University to finish her last two years of school. When she was in grade school, a close friend was accidently shot. As a result he was paralyzed from the waist down and went outside for therapy treatments. Maggie then thought about physical therapy as a vocation. But as time went by she sort of forgot about it, and considered other occupations in- cluding teaching. Just recently, however, she read ...MERRY-GO- ROUND an article on the number of men injured in Viet -Nam who must undergo physical therapy. Now that she has decided on physical therapy, she doubts she will change her mind. " I have a lot of patience with child- ren and would like work with them. " Maggie, who enjoys working with her hands, would also like to take a few home ec courses if she can find the time. Four years ago she started to make jewelry from Alaskan jade, ivory and gold. Some of the gold she uses she panned herself in Nome. She has several pieces of jewelry she made herself. She also sews animal skins in her spare time. She learned at high school by helping make a girl ' s muskrat parka, and has made muk- luks, sealskin purses and baby booties of calfskin. Maggie says she " loves Alaska " and will probably settle down here after she has finished school. Campus Views The University took on a new look this year with the const- ruction of roads from the Sub to the BioScience building. Often they worked late into the night to have the roads com- pleted before winter set in. Sidewalks were also a welcome new feature this year. II DO THEY COME New professors at the University of Alaska are con- fronted with many questions. One most often asked them is: " Why did you come up here? " PAULETTE SMALLWOOD They give many answers. Some came to savor the challenge and adventure of this relatively virgin land. Still others said that they just wanted to see what Alaska was like. Many others said that they just wanted a change from the hectic pace of stateside living. One new professor had an amusing answer. He said he had read all about this place, how cold it got, the hunting, and the high prices, that he couldn ' t believe it, so he came to try it out. Another professor said that when he was deciding where to apply, he happened to read of the University of Alaska and since it sounded interesting he sent in his application. This same professor said that he and his family were surprised to find it in the high 80 ' s and low 90 ' s in Fairbanks when they arrived in June. He had heard that it stayed cold here all year around. He also said that despite the fact that his new home was destroyed by the flood, he and his family have fal- len in love with Alaska and that they were determined to stay in Alaska. 13 Brody ABSTRACT INSIDER This is William Brody ' s first year as a teacher as well as his first year in Alaska. He has always more or less been interested in art, and started paint- ing in oils when he was fifteen. " I still can ' t handle a brush very well, " he says. " I work for pre- cision, and oils are good because they can be redone until perfect. " He had intended to graduate from Harvey Mudd College in Clairmont California with a math degree. By working in this field until he was about thirty, he could make some money, retire at that age and turn all his efforts to painting. " I felt I could wait that long because the great painters didn ' t paint their best works until they were older anyway. " Brody realized he wasn ' t as inter- ested in math as he was in art and teaching, so he went to two years of graduate study at Clairmont Graduate School and University Center. " You have to go to grad school to teach, so I went, " he said. He received his Master of Fine Arts in June, 1967. Of 150 some places he applied for teaching positions, Brody was particularly interested in the Uni- versity of Alaska. A friend who had been stationed at Eielson AFB had first told him of the U. of A. He had wanted to be in a new place and was especial- ly interested in teaching University level students. " The students are better, and once you teach at a state university level, it is pretty easy to continue at that level. " As far as an artist is concerned, stressed Brody, if you aren ' t in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, or San Francisco, it doesn ' t matter where you are. He enjoys the Alaskan country side even though he is not an out- ' door man-- " I ' ve only been fishing] twice in my life. " Though he likes to look at them, " The idea of painting glacier covered mountains bores me, " he said. " Some of the colors and shapes of the hillsides, the rounded ones, reminding me of the backgrounds I use for his paintings. " Brody is a teacher because he likes to work with people and enjoys giving his knowledge for others to use. His style is one which he says is not popular now and " may or may not be in five or ten years. " Brody feels his paintings while " not exactly didactic " do teach. They will be a good experience for Alaskan students. He leaves the door between his office and class- room open so students may feel free to come in, look at his work, and talk if they wish. He instructs classes in painting, print making and drawing here at the Univer- sity. Brody does not know how long he will remain in Alaska. He is in- different towards the coming winter. " My interests are inside, reading, music and of course painting, and if you ' re inside, once again it doesn ' t matter where you are. " 14 Yousef NEED NO CAMEL Mohamed Yousef came to the University of Alaska from the University of Missouri where he received his Phd in environmental physiology, June, 1966. He drove the Alaskan Highway with his wife and daughter this summer. Yes, it was quite an experience, and he admitted frankly ' It scared me to death. " In 1959, Yousef received his BS degree in biology from the Univer- sity of Eimshem in the United Arab Republic. He first heard of the U of A while in the U of M environmental physiology research department. The Arctic biology research depart- ment here at the University is well recognized in the field of en- vironmental physiology. While in Missouri, Yousefstudied the affects of heat and hot weather on animals. Here he will do the reverse, studying the affect of cold on reindeer and caribou as well as the affects of radiation. Questions he will face here are: How much cold can these animals really withstand. The temperature may drop to -50, but do these animals actually live in it, or do they migrate to warmer areas? The results of his research are then used to help man survive in cold climates. Can reindeer be raised as a meat animal sucessfully? A Russian scientist claims that reindeer can not subsist on hay as can a cow. Yousef explained that environ- mental physiology is a relatively new field, started by the army to help enable survival and comfort in extreme climates. The National Aeronautic and Space Admini- stration still supplies many of the funds for current studies. Environmental physiology is applied science, or gives the engine- ers the information to apply to human beings. Yousef pointed out that if Environmental physiologists can discover the secret that slows down the metabolism in hibernating animals, the process can hopefully apply to astronauts when making long space flights. He is looking forward to spending the winter here. He intends to wait and see how he, himself, can best stay warm. Each person he talks to gives him different hints on how to stay warm. While watching a film on U of A winter activities, he noticed that " there is no stan- dard uniform for keeping warm. Each individual has his own method. " Because he is here for research purposes only, he has little con- tact with the students. He enjoys the friendly people on campus very much. Before leaving Alaska he would very much like to visit the north slope and the Arctic. When asked if he thought a camel might be imported to Alaska for research purposes, he only laughed and said " They hardly need a camel here. " 15 Brooks: JUST CURIOUS H en Hugh Brooks, who has re- placed Francis Pyne as Head of the Department of Health, Phy- sical Education and Recreation here at the University of Alaska said " Why does anyone come up here? I guess I was just curious. " Brooks first applied for the position in 1965, so he has been curious for a few years. Brooks is a Canadian who re- ceived both his Bachelers and Masters degrees in Physical Ed- ucation, Recreation and Athletics at Mount Royal Junior College in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, directly before coming to Alaska. Though interested in all forms of Physical Education from camping to basketball, he has excelled in track and field. In high school, he set the Canadian Juvenile Broad Jump Record in 1954, and was named outstanding District Athlete in 1951 through 1953. At Brigham Young University he was Skyline Broad Jump Champion in 1955, 56, and 58, set the Invitational Broad Jump Re- cord in 1958 and was awarded the Outstanding Track Athlete Award in 1958. Brooks and his family arrived in Fairbanks just a week before the flood. He was just taking over his responsibilities in the Patty Build- ing when he found himself house- father for several hundred refugees. He and his family had to evacuate their new hom e — a basement apart- ment in Fairbanks. The problem of a new place to live was solved when he and his wife were appointed the Resident Advisors of Skarland Hall. Brooks record at Mount Royal Junior College shows that he is a qualified man for the job he has taken. When he became Director of the Department of Physical Educa- tion and Athletics in 1963, it had only a $9000 budget. Whenhe left inl967, the department had expanded to 120 students with a budget of over $120,000 for 1967-68. 16 Rase he: FINE STUDENTS Dr. Herbert Rasche has been living in Alaska three years, but has just joined the staff this fall. He came to Alaska as a geogra- pher with the Army Research and Development Program for the Arc- tic Test Center. Rasche has known about the Uni- versity of Alaska ' throughout its history. " He has always been inter- ested in Alaska from a profes- sional as well as personal point of view. His first knowledge of the University ' s scientific aspects came to him through Army projects con- cucted in the late 1940 ' s. Rasche received his Master ' s de- gree in Geography from the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. During his military career the Army sent him to Harvard where he completed his Doctorate ' s in Geography and climatology. When Rashe came to Alaska in 1964 he was a retired officer work- ing for the Army project as a civilian. " Rasche became acquainted with the University ' s faculty during research programs which enabled a close relationship between the army research staff and the Uni- versity faculty. " Rasche was a teacher for ten years before beginning his mili- tary career, in the Milwaukee Public School System as well as at the University of Wisconsin. He taught at the state college in Cutztown , Penn. which is three times larger than the U of A, immediately before coming to Alaska. " The students here are fine, " says Rasche, " They have a greater seriousness of purpose here than elsewhere. " His wife, Gertrude Rasche, has been teaching in the English Dept. on campus for two years, and when a chance to join the staff present- ed itself, Dr. Rasche didn ' t hesitate. I ' m very happy and pleased to be associated with the University of Alaska, " he said. 17 N ' PiLOTs p toat c WISCONSIN L Ripoi Davenport] [INDIANA K ' RKsviuue |SSOURt TeRne ILLINOIsl « UTe 4 s OHIO KENTUCKY ARKANSAS MftbNOI TENNESSEE. MISSISSIPPI .LOUISIANA georotia m-abanna . v 19 Voctr AisA ♦ ♦ Late last spring three representatives of the Creative Writers Workshop from the University of Alaska flew down to Seward to present a one -hour session on poetry for the students of the Kenai School District. The three were Ken Warfel, Dr. Bob King and Dr. Ed Skellings. They thoroughly delighted the students with their presentation of their own poems and some modern poems. BY MARY LOU HELFRICH They " generated so much enthusiasm in their initial trip that it lead to a month long lecture series at colleges in the Southwest and Midwest this summer. The tour was financed by the Upward Bound headquarters in Washington, D.C. as a pilot program to acquaint college students with modern poets and poetry. The Upward Bound program, which is funded by the Economic Opportunity Act, is meant primarily to give students from poverty stricken areas a chance to experience a college atmosphere. The " flying poets " allowed these students to meet specialists in the Arts with the hope that this con- frontation would stimulate them to continue their education. Two other members Dr. Donald Kaufman and Professor Lawrence Wyatt, of the University ' s English department joined the three original fliers on their trip. Ken Warfel was the only student among the five. Ken is well known for his poetry at the university and has published a book of poems, " Fow and other Finger Prints " . Dr. Skellings was the driving force behind the tour and acted as program director for the group. The poets chartered a six-passenger plane and flew it from school to school on their tour. Each visit began with the poets giving the students some idea of their background and an explanation of their own interest in poetry, fiction, and drama. They encouraged student participation and each of them met with smaller groups of students after the program. They also held conferences with indiv- idual students who showed an interest in writing. 20 Experience Each student was invited to send his best work during the next year to the Alaska Workshop for criticism by the student writers here. Dr. Skellings said that the theme of the talks was the " relationship between the facts of an indiv- idual ' s life and the process of artistic creation. " He went on to say that they tried to show the stu- dents that literature is a living process and not " the Museum of the printed page. " Their trip took them from Chadron State College in Nebraska to Indiana State College at Terre Haute. In all they visited 11 colleges, including the Univ- ersity of North Dakota in Fargo where they spoke to a group of Indian students. Dr. Skellings considers the personal contact be- tween the poets and the students as the most im- portant facet of the tour. In many cases the stu- dents invited the poets to dances and to readings of their own poetry after the program and helped both the poets and the students to communicate on a very personal level. Ken Warfel feels that there was a good and very satisfying response from the kids. He added that they chopped down the image of teachers by showing students that teachers were also human and capable of mistakes. He said that they accomplished this by becom- ing a part of the students they talked with by re- cognizing their values and by showing them that poetry involved them. Dr. Kaufman feels that there is a general gap between parents and youths. He says that today ' s generation is brighter and more hip than their par- ents were and that today ' s youth will take honesty and nothing else. If you turn phony you turn them off. He said that during their trip they tried to be as honest as possible with the students they met and that the trip fulfilled one of their own ideals, " Honesty for the sake of Honesty. " He added that it worked that they got turned on and the students got turned on and " the Upward Bound finally found its name. " The flying poets hope to make their lecture series a continuing program. They plan to visit high schools in Alaska during the coming year and tour Scandinavian countries next summer. Skellings said that if the Vietnam war does not curtail the present cultural thaw between the United States and Russia, next summer ' s tour will 21 • DR. KAUFMANN " I MISS YOU " Margaret Lucille Adams Laurel Hall San Marcos, Texas 78666 June 29, 1967 Dear Dr. Kaufmann, I am the Negro girl that was sitting by the window in the first group you talked to. I just wanted to thank graciously spent here with us. I can truth -fully say I love you all. You are the kind of people I wish I could meet or be around always. Please excuse my manuscript form but I am in a hurry. I have two tests to study for. I must say that I miss you all, although you were here one day and we are almost total strangers. I hold you 5 men very high in my hea rt because you all gave back to me what was fading away. My respect for myself, my ideas, and just plain me. I thank you very much. May God Bless and keep you all. Please write when you have time. Love Margaret My friends call me Sister. Will you, too? Love Sister 22 • " Let me explain that fourth word in the third line of the first verse. " 9 Oh really, you ' ve read my poem July 7, 1967 Indiana State University Terre Haute Dear Mr. Skellings, I ' ve been thinking about your visit today, and I don ' t believe you realize what you started. Mind you, it ' s all to the good, but you ' ve started a landslide, and I think it ' s great! All the students that are interested are thinking about seeing if it would be at all possible for us to enroll in college English courses for the second summer term. And had it not been for you, we wouldn ' t have even thought such things, let alone ask for them. But thanks alot! You started the ball rolling and we only hope we can carry it on through. Also a thing you said about short stories and poems got to a boy named Steve Skor jane and myself. So we ' re gonna go together and write a book of short stories, for you to read, if not for publishing, for fun. A lot of things you said about Univei jity of Alaska got to me and I ' d like to see if maybe you could send me some literature on it. That is, if it wouldn ' t be too much trouble. I hope you are able to visit us once again this summer. All the students thought you were really great, and you were WITH US. And to teens that means alot And your poetry made me sit up and realize it isn ' t all fuddy-dud some can be quite neat. At first, I must admit, we weren ' t too overly enthused, but once we met you, we didn ' t want you to leave. (As a matter of fact, I was gonna skip it, but one of the counselors caught me before I could get away. I ' m glad they did, though.) Well, once again, I want to thank you, for starting the college ball roUing and for opening lots of eyes on Poetry. If anything is said by anyone, all of students are gonna write you. Thanks for being so interesting. Yours truly, Linda Myers P.S. The girl with the emotional face. " You didn ' t really like my poem, did you? " Campus Views From the birch tree ' s point of view the University campus is one of changing sights from the old Eielson to the modern Terris Moore Hall. NEW TREE FOR A NEW DORM CAMPUS BUILDINGS TERRIS MOORE OPEN HOUSE FJ 1 MM - ' W r mi W : t GUESS WHAT? 24 o UofA MOUNT PALMOR PICK WICK DORM 25 Joe whispered " The stuffs all at my place, and Ron is bringing the acid. " It was really on, I had wanted to try pot and this was the night. Five people sat in a circle on the floor of the one room log cabin. Two guys smoked cigarettes they had rolled themselves. The rest of us were passing a pipe around. My first couple drags ended in coughing fits. The acrid smoke which smells something like sweet burning hair, rasped my throat and burned my lungs. I didn ' t know what to expect and secretly tended to agree with a girl who started yelling " This stuff doesn ' t work, nothing is happening. It doesn ' t work on me. " But slowly my surroundings took on a rosy glow. I felt a rosy glow inside and around me. The room rocked slowly back and forth, like a ship deck. A boy opposite me was grinning, and his face looked like it was all smile-a Cheshire cat! I started giggling and soon we were all laughing our heads off. The walls moved in and out- -pushing the ceiling skyward and then dropping it down almost on our heads. The wall opposite me moved farther and farther away until it appeared as a small square at the end of a long, long hallway. One of the guys was having an animated conversation with himself in the mirror, ine jazz band was inside my head--the stereo was coming out my ears and I could feel the drum sticks beating on the back of my nose. We ate dill pickles with sugar on them, and the more sugar on them the better. My face was so puckered I wondered if I would ever get it straightened out. Time was completely irrelevant. I had never felt so good or carefree. Life had never been so easy or wonderful. I finally fell into a deep sleep filled with vividly colored dreams. After careful contemplation upon waking the next morning, I found I was still the same persion of 24 hours earlier. No great earth shattering changes in personality or trends of thought. I was surprised to find that I had had no terrible hallucinations such as those pictured in magazines as the result of using any form of drugs. A confirmed drug user explained later that no matter what a person takes, Marijuana, LSD, Asthmadore or any of the innumerable other drugs, he will not blow his mind as long as a touch with reality is maintained. Subconsciously at least, you must remember that eventually you will return to reality. Otherwise incidents happen like the man who pictured himself as an orange and thought that if anyone touched him he would turn into juice. CAUTION: These cigarettes may be hazardous to your health 28 This same user admitted one time when he had almost lost touch. He smoked Hashish (Turkish pot, much stronger than marijuana) and almost forgot that he was a human being. My visions were so beau- tiful I couldn ' t or didn ' t want to come back. LSD takes much longer to work into your system. " You take a dose and then have to sit around for it to take effect. " For this reason it is not uncommon to take theacid(LSD) and then smoke pot to start the high out. When taking LSD, a buddy system is employed. It is best to go with someone even if you are an exper- ienced user, and it is imperative for the beginner to have an exper- ienced person to show him the " right way. Acid visions are muc h more vivid and wilder than those of pot. " For every noise I heard, a color simul- taneously flashed in my brain, and before. It was like having a screen inside my head on which these colors flashed so rapidly at times it mad me dizzy. " Though some experts on drug usage and in psychology disclaim the fact that masterpieces can be created during a high, users feel that it is entirely possible. " The thoughts you have and the colors you see and could duplicate while high would never occur to the normal mind. " A person can definitely become psychologically addicted to pot, just as to cigarettes or alcohol. However, there is no physical craving as In the case of heroin or opium. There are five or six known cases on campus of people who smoke at least four times a day and stay up all the time. Why? " You can function quite well while high, and why come down when things are better when you are up. " The University " in " group who use the stuff regularly are a tightly knit bunch. " It ' s not that we look down on the other students so much, but we have definite common inter- est which we must protect, so for safety and security we stick tegether. " Unless the interested or curious know someone who will supply them, it is almost impossible to get hold of the stuff. The pusher, or seller, as known in other places, does not exist on campus. There is more of a share and share alike society. " If I have a large supply, I ' ll sell it to a buddy, but I don ' t run around trying to sell it. " Word gets around as to who has it and who has a supply coming in. Interested parties know " who to see. " Once an " in " is extablished, it is easy to get hold of anything from pep pills to LSD because they are all present within the group. " They are all there if you want to try them, but no one cares if you just want to smoke and not try anything else. They may suggest a different high to you, but never force or egg you to take it. " Drugs do exist on campus, and in a greater amount than last year. Pot reportedly has been smoked in campus Johns, on campus lawns and in campus dorm rooms. " It ' s fine until some one with a good nose comes along said one smoker. A jar labeled " experiment --Do Not Touch " sat in a campus refrig- erator. Its contents--LSD. There are an untold number of " straights " on campus. These are the Joe College crewcut and tie people who try drugs a few times for an experiment, then give it up for various reasons. " I could see no future in it or " I had no reason to continue. These also include habitual users who don ' t associate with the " long haired crowd. " " Where they get their stuff is a pretty dark secret claims one co- ed. " I know pretty much what goes on, but I couldn ' t tell you. Either they have their own supply, or one of the bunch sells it quietly. " 29 Use of drugs is definitely not limited to the students. Reports from users list at least 25 faculty mem- bers who have or do use the drugs. Of which about ten smoke regularly at the present time. Few of the U of A drug users consider themselves hippies. A hippy is a self-proclaimed individ- ual. " Flower power--what a bunch of hogwash, " scoffs one girl, " I wear beads, sure, but I strung them my- self at a party when I took LSD, and I ' m proud of the fact. " One curly beard said " Some of the things Leary said hold water, but they don ' t affect me. I don ' t feel I ' m rebelling against society so much, I just like to go up. " There are numbers of drug users in Fairbanks proper, where the pusher is more prevelant, and on Ft. Wainwright with its migrant population. The college crowd, as a rule, does not associate with these other groups. One man related an incident when two high school girls were at a college party. " After we smoked a couple of joints one of the teeny-boppers just cracked. We couldn ' t quiet her down or make her sit still. All we need is for her to start blabbing to all her friends or, heaven help us, her mother where she went and what she did. It really ruined the evening. " In his book " Nightmare Drugs, " Donald Louria, MD claims that there is a definite lack of ambition and drive among drug addicts. Campus users admit this lack of ambition. " Few of us hold steady jobs. " A hippy (self-proclaimes) says " I ' m happy, why worry about tommorrow, and when I ' m up nothing seems too important or pressing anyway. " Some of the drugs are scarce in the Fairbanks area, mainly due to unavailability. Everything is here or can be gotten in a short time. " I don ' t know of any college people on the hard stuff right now, " says one acid head, " But there have been, during the summer, and I personally know of two fellows on base who use heroin. " Some pills are available locally " I can ' t tell you from where. " The rest are mailed in or brought in by travellers. Some LSD is manu- factured here. Marajuana is usually received in bulk form and then cut down here. The average smoker doesn ' t know what he is getting, nor does he care as long as it works. An indi- vidual once received some 12% pot. It is usually only 6% or so. He had to cut it down before using it or selling it. The user would smoke it like it was the usual stuff and could have endangered himself. 30 Pot is usually sold by the match- box full, or lid. The strength of the grass determines how many highs can be gotten from a boxful. Going prices here are about $15 to $20 a lid. This is about $5 more than West Coast prices. LSD may come in a liquid form, in the well-known sugar cube or as taken often here on a blue-dotter, which is a drop of acid on a tablet of methedrine. Methedrine is a stim- ulant or pep pill. Acid can run anywhere from $10 to $25 depending upon the amount and the kind. The best LSD is clear, but by degrees drops in effectiveness and the mild- est is light brown in color. Medical reports of the dangers involved phase drug users but little. " Many of the magazine articles today are very fear-oriented, " declared one user. " There is truth in what they say, but they never mention the pleasure we get out of it. That ' s why I ' ll take my chances. " One acid head also claims " Concrete proof that LSD is detrementas to the health will stop precious few who take it now. It may frighten off begin- ners and those who are thinking about taking it. " Police realize the problem exists, but need evidence to act upon. Martin B. Underwood, head of security and safety on campus, said that these problems can be expected on a campus as cosmo- politan as that of the U of A. " These problems appear latent on campus he said, " but reports or complaints would be followed by dis- creet investigation and action, de- pending on results of the investi- gation. " The last big problem was when several young boys took asthmadore during the flood. But of course these weren ' t campus resi- dents, " said Underwood. Officials also pointed out the trend for general attitudes toward drugs to be more lenient than a few years ago. Present efforts to ease up marijuana laws are a prime example. Though local officials have said nothing, the local underground re- ports two narcotics agents in the area. In fact the college crowd recently claims that there Is a Fed- eral agent on campus who they have spotted and have nicknamed •Narco. " Users are generally very cau- tious but realise they do get care- less. Most understand the chance they are taking and feel " If they get caught, they get caught.

The team will again attend the largest tournament in the nation at Kansas State. The University has scored bullseyes in the six years of attendance as they have placed every year. The best showing being in 1962 when the placed first. BY RONN RUSSELL The women ' s team, the best in the nation in 1966, has won the National- Women ' s Championship four times since 1961. The University champions are Eilleen Malone, Lola Oliver, Sharon Satre and Linda Harris. They competed in the section finals at Oregon State University where their scores topped 221 other women ' s teams. The ROTC team was at the top of the ladder in 1966, as the University gathered in another National Championship. WONDER IF MY FINGER ' S STRAIGHT SEVEN LITTLE SHOOTER ' S ALL IN A ROW WOOD FROM THE LEFT WE ' VE GOT HIM IN A CROSSFIRE JOHN S. WALKENS 4 TIME ALL-AMERICAN Sighting down the barrel of the past the team has produced 12 All- Americans. The latest one being Neil Eklund of College, Alaska. Eklund has been named All- American three times and is the University ' s best chance for the honor this year. There has been one other 4 time All-American. John S. Walkens who was named to the team in 1961-1964. The best shot into the future for All-Americans stated Sgt. Evans will be Barbara DeSpain, and David Schrieber. Sgt. Kenneth Evans, a " Dis- tinguished Rifleman, " is in his second year of team coaching and instruction at the University of Alaska. He won the honor of dis- tinguished rifleman in 1957 by being in the top ten percent of the shooter in the nation. Evans started shooting in 1955 with the U.S. Army Pacific Team. In 1956 he shot with the army team at the army sections. The major accomplishment of Evans was when he shot with the national record setting Infantry Trophy Team. While stationed in Europe he coached the United States European Team. In 1961 he placed third in the All -Service Team. 36 • BUSHUE FROM THE RIGHT Evans was assigned to test and handload ammunition for the 1964 Olympic games. During this time he was a member of the All -Army team. At the end of this time he was assigned to the University. Looking through the scope of the future. Freshmen likely to score bullseyes for the University will be Barbara DeSpain and Paul Bon- iface. Barbara will be one of the leading varsity members. Last year she lead Lathrop High School to a nation- al championship with a first place at Kansas State for high schools. Boniface who just shot well enough to break into the varsity is another hopeful. He was one of the top lettermen at East Anchorage High School. Like sights that must be lined for perfection the team is guided by members with a sight into the future. Officers for this years team are David Schrieber, captain of the varsity team, Eilleen Malone, captain of the women ' s team. Barbara DeSpain is secretary, and John Wood team historian. Poping off shots for the first time this year will be the P.E. department who is offering a course in shooting. Evans says that if he lives through the teaching that they may produce some varsity material. 37 Campus Views P R BALL Barbara Miller, daughter of Colonel Miller, Chief of the Alaska Military District was crowned queen at the re- cent P R Ball October 14, 1967. Part of Barbara ' s duties as queen will be official hostess at P R functions. She will assist in planning activities and attend all meetings. This year ' s theme for the ball was from the sea char- acter, King Neptune. f WOO WEE WHAT A BALL QUEEN ' S COURT 38 t I v wmtmm A SPIRITS RIDING E NIGHT " We may tell by the streams that look so bright, That spirits are riding the Northern Lights. " - " A Canadian Winter Sketch " by Ellen Todd The Aurora Borealis or " Northern Dawn " has interested men through the centuries. Many explana- tions have been given at different times for these lights that " dance across the sky. " ■ BY ANN KNOLL •aa ) v iiz v s z wsxw Some have seen these dancing lights as gods play- ing or as a sign from heaven. First mention of them in written history occurred in Italy as early as 503 B.C. Poets have used them for inspiration since Chaucer. Besides being mentioned in numerous folk litera- ture, scientists through the years have formed differ- ent theories about the Aurora. In the third century B.C., Aristotle theorized that the heat from the sun causes a vapor to rise from the earth ' s surface and collide with the element fire which then bursts into flame. In the nineteenth century it was believed that the Northern Lights were caused by a reflection of the sun off the polar icecap. Today a scientific account of the phenomena is possible. A shower of charged particles from the sun passes through the rare gases in the upper atmos- phere, causing them to glow. These high-speed par- ticles make an electric current which glows different colors when passing through different gasses. Rarefied nitrogen in the upper atmosphere causes reddish color and oxygen, yellow-green. This stream of particles from the sun usually is directed to the polar regions by the magnetic field. Sometimes this cascade in- creases suddenly because of disturbances on the sun. Usually these eruptions are accompanied by brilliant displays of the Northern Lights. There is record of one of these exceptional dis- plays being seen as far south as India. This is very rare since usually the only people to view the aurora are those living in or near the polar regions. The Aurora Borealis was the first concern of the Geophysical Institute on the University of Alaska campus. Since the founding of the institute in 1929, many varied studies have grown out of the original base. Today the staff of approximately 200 is also concerned with graduate research training. This autumn the Geophysical Institute received a grant to install special equipment in a research plane to be used for even more intensive study of the aurora. The building on the Alaskan campus is only a part of the huge complex of the Geophysical Institute which, although greatly expanded, is still concerned with the Aurora Borealis. A major factor in the growth of the Geophysical Institute has been its favorable location with respect to the auroral zone because different types of auroral studies have been conducted in Alaska. Over a time the height of the aurora has been measured in various places and 62 miles seems to be the average. It has been found by Dr. T. N. Davis that the max- imum incidance of the aurora in the vicinity of Fairbanks occurs near local midnight. Similarly, a seasonal variation in the frequency of displays has been noticed by many years of observation. The peak periods appear to occur close to the equinoxes, that is, during September-October and March-April. Some other fields of study have dealt with the possible sound of the aurora, the forms and color of the phenomena and the possibility of bouncing radio signals off the aurora. Besides contributing in words, the Geophysical Institute has contributed through Dr. Vic Hessler numerous beautiful pictures which are often seen in any article about the Aurora Borealis. This sight of wonder can best be appreciated by actual viewing. Men have marvelled down through the ages ... and we still are. No matter at what level we view this natural phenomena, it still is a source of wonder and delight. And fantastic shapes are moulding On the background of the sky. K.

Ans: Yes, was born in Cutoff, Alaska up on the Kayukuk Valley, approximately 250 miles north of Fairbanks on June 3, 1944. Ques: Did you go to school there? Ans: When I was six years old we didn ' t have an elementary school so I went to St. Mark ' s school in Nenana. Then after that we even- tually did get a public school. For high school I attended Sheldon Jackson in Sitka. I graduated in 1963, valedictorian in my class. By SUE MILLER jjjw5 55jjjjj 555j}5555jjJ55jj }JJJ$55% Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: Were you involved in any of the extra- curricular activities? I was very active in extra-curricular act- ivities like drama, student government and public speaking. In 1963 I won the state oratorical award and got a trip to Idaho. I came in second in the regionals--darn it! Where did you go after graduation, John? I went to Ohio University in Athens for one year. Then because of the expense of traveling so far and out of state costs I came back to Alaska. My main reason for going out was to see the other states and gain travel experience- - to see everything. What about your college activities? I never became very active in extra- curricular activities until after I ' d been here at the U of A for awhile. I came back here for my sophomore year. Then I was in the Young Republican club. Student Senate, Theata, Choir of the North and Alpha Kappa Psi--a business fraternity. I continued to be active in these for two years. I was treasurer of ASUA in my junior year and was also active in native affairs being vice president of the Fairbanks Native Assoc- iation. Later on I served as President of the Tanana Chiefs Association. The Tanana Chiefs is comprised of 32 villages throughout the Interior. Ques: John, tell us about your campaigning. Ans: At the end of my junior year the Young Republicans were becoming very active in state-wide politics and we tried, to keep up with political activities. We were having speakers on campus. I had thought of running for the legislature, however, at the time I was busy going to school since I was only 21 years old. Finally, it was 15 minutes before the deadline for filing for office in June, that I finally filed for myself. That semester at school was quite hectic- -studying and trying to campaign at the same time. Ques: How did you do your personal campaigning in the midst of school activities? Ans: I ' d go out with an airplane for maybe a few days --five -day periods --and miss classes. During that time I visited the villages. Then I ' d come back and make up tests that I missed and catch up on home- work. Then I ' d be off and running around the bush again. My instructors were very good about it and helped me a lot. Many of my friends here on campus were quite helpful in laying out my campaign materials. We used the ASUA office (laughter). My experience as treasurer of ASUA and on the finance committee in Juneau on the legis- lature helped me tremendously. In November " My goal is 45 more cultural programs • Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: of last year I finally won the election and I continued with my education. Then I left in January for Juneau to serve in the legislature. Where have your travels taken you recently? About a month ago I went to Europe for research on Greenland and the Greenland Eskimos and the Laplanders witn regard to their transition from one culture into another. I was going to spend six weeks but came back after 12 days because of the flood. Very short, I ' m afraid. I didn ' t know how bad the flood was. I heard that water covered everything and all was lost. How long have you been at the University of Alaska? This is my fourth year because of the semester I served in the legislature. O.K. I guess that brings us to your senior year. I was a senior last year but only part- time because of campaigning. This semester I ' m full-time. This summer I worked for A-67 and decided I ' d be a full time student and began in the fall. I enrolled for 15 credit hours. However, a special session was called and I had to study in between times the House convened. It was difficult, though, because serving on the finance com- mittee requires a lot of extra work. My goal is to graduate. If necessary I ' ll not run again until I graduate. What do you think of the University of Alaska, John? The University is relatively isolated- -that ' s both good and bad. It would be good for the University to take more part with the Univer- sities in the lower ' 48 ' . We need more cultural programs. Also, the University Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: Ques: Ans: needs to be careful that other cities will be trying to enlarge their community colleges which could grow to such an extent that many of our students would remain in their respective cities. However, the University has tremendous plans for expanding, although it may be difficult with all the other needs of the state. So much of Alaska ' s money goes to education but costs are high. The caliber of professors and curriculum is very good. What do you see in the future for the Univer- sity? It ' s going to grow with the state. Its future remains with research in the arctic and subarctic but I hope it doesn ' t occur to the extent that students are lost in the shuffle. What about your own future, John? Right now it only extends to the date of graduation and I may drop out of the legis- lature to finish. After that I may go on for my masters or study to take the CPA exam. John, since you are a senior and have so much experience behind you (he laughs) what is your advice to freshmen? Probably the best advice is to take advantage of all the free time you have so that you don ' t flunk out of college. There seems to be a large gap between leaving high school and entering college. There is only one way to overcome this gap and that is to study. Statistics show that so many freshmen drop out after the first year but this needn ' t be the case if they just keep their nosps to the grindstone (to use a cliche). Also, ii a person wants to Decome involved in extra-curricular activities he could do so easily after he learns how much he can do and still be able to get involved without his grades suffering. noses to the grindstone.

The pursuit requires only two participants who walk on opposite sides of the street scanning the scene for bewhiskered individuals. Upon spying one, the successful player shouts " Beaver! " For an ordinary beard he scores ten BY J.E. GODDARD aasaaaaaas gg ggccggsgggsc saa«»ca3ca3aa«»»is 3ss» points. A K ing Beaver, or a red beard, brings 50 points and the Queen Beaver or Red Queen Beaver rates from 100 to 500 points. Herein lies the challenge. Since the latter types must be worn by members of the fairer sex, they are a trifle more difficult to find. Even D. B.Wynd- ham Lewis, the British author, who invented the game admits this; but in his day beards were plentiful enough to make for a lively game of Beaver. Lewis wrote in the late 1800 ' s and more than a half century later we find ourselves in what appears to be a renaissance of beard-wearing. Particularly at the nation ' s northernmost university where every- where we look some variety of the chin fringe appears. The techinical term for beard-wearer is pogono- phile from the Greek ' pogonotrophos ' --a word that was also synonomous for philosopher. Both meanings counted for a particular Greek who staged a whimsical opponent, Socrates bet on the distance a flea could jump between them. Winner kept the most agile flea. This event may have prompted the Roman, Ammanius • QUEEN ' S MEN? some time later to comment, " A beard creates lice not brains. " Throughout recorded history beards have followed an on-again, off-again pattern. There were even periods when false beards were preferred. Great confusion is said to have been created. Business deals were falsified because a man ' s identity was unclear; lovers were scandalized when wrong partners were discovered and so on. Some analysts see a correlation between eras when a queen occupies the throne of England and when beards begin to bloom in profusion. Under Elizabeth the first, there were the famous beards of Drake, Raleigh, and Shakespeare. With the long reign of Victoria came a great beards revival including a strange variety of mustachioes, extended sideburns, and flowing full beards. The popularity spread to America and at the latter part of the century in the wild West and rugged Yukon, nearly every man sported a handlebar mustache. At the advent of modern shaving devices, the beard phased out in favor of the clean shaven look for status conscious young men. Usually during these times, social pressure was heavy enough to discourage any would-be pogonophiles. Statistics on the subject of shaving indicate that the average man, beginning at age 15 and continuing for a 55 year span, can expect to rid himself of 27 and one half feet of whiskers, thereby spending a total of 3350 hours or 139 days shaving. The figures are produced by Dr. Herbert Mescon, professor and chairman of the department of dermatology at the t Boston University School of Medicine. He also states that shaving is accompanied by a mild form of abrasion; the skin actually undergoes a slight traum since a number of healthy living cells are scraped off in the process. The average male has about 30,000 whiskers on his face, often as many as 700 to 800 to the square inch. Most hairs grow at the rate of .017 of an inch per day. This is true , of course, for Caucasians rather than persons of negroid or mongo- loid stock --races largely devoid of body hair. Also, if you are a woman, you can expect to have quite a few less than the average amount of whiskers. This is not always the case though. The story of the Spanish saint, Paula the Bearded, who prod- uced an " insta-beard " while trying to run from a rapist is an example . Unfortunately, legend did not record the rapist ' s reply when St. Paula turned around. The world of letters missed what undoubt- edly would have been an immortal remark. Now that another queen is on the throne of England, an increase in beards has been noted, whether the two are related has yet to be established. In the U.S., the revival was probably ushered in by the unshaven, bathless beats and continues as a different kind of protest by the hippies or flower children. These beards can be placed in the ' beard disident ' category where it is both a public and private symbol expressing " to hell with it all. " A second category and one that is probably much larger consists of men who grow beard as they say, it it is the easiest and most natural thing to do. In a capsule survey of bearded males on the U. of Alaska campus, we asked why they grew their beards, whether their beards had ever been a point of difficulty for them and their general attitudes on the matter. " Shaving is bothersome, " political science prof- essor Ed Webking asserts. " Five out of seven times that you do shave, you get a knick. " His trimmed light red beard is the product of about eight months growth and is the second he had worn. The original came off in order to insure the arrival of the next paycheck while teaching in a Cal- ifornia high school. Webking faced a stern school board-solicited resignation unless he removed the beard. Soon after that, Ed added, a similar case was carried to the California Supreme Court which ruled that " wearing a beard is a man ' s individual and inalienable right. " English professor Larry Wyatt explained, " I wear a beard for basically the same reason Hemingway wore one: Because it ' s the one thing that a man can do better than a woman. " 50 Wyatt added that " when the Flying Poets made a tour of several mid-western universities last summer, most people reacted to Bob King and myself as though we might be. „ . hippies or weirdos. " Ron Short, a graduate assistant in biology, who kept his experimental beard when friends told him that he was " less ugly " with it, described the feeling: " It ' s like being a Negro. To go into a place where a beard is not accepted, you ' re immediately identified as a liberal, an extremist... " " Fortunately, my accent saved me in difficult situations. " Short said. People say, " Oh, he ' s British . . . he ' s not one of them. " The former Londoner is currently in the fourth year of a ten year working trip around the world. In his travels Ron said that he felt that the southern U.S. was least receptive to bearded types. " They connect them with civil rights workers, " he reasoned. Short ' s buddy, another Englishman and a geology assistant here, Dick Swainbank, sports a handsome blond Van Dyke beard. " Looks like Robin Hood, " Short observed. When asked if he grew his beard for reasons of appearance, Swainbank replied, " Don ' t know if I ' m better looking but at least I recognize myself. " Strangely enough, Point Barrow is the community where Dick ' s beard met with adverse reaction. " People looked at me suspiciously and made comments like, " Wonder if he can walk on water.too? " Swainbank recalled. Don Rosenthal, a fellow who wears his beard because he like the locks of it, has in fact lost two jobs over this point. One was a darkroom position with a Boston firm that apparently felt appearances were important --even in the dark.

" A good case for functionalism can be made here, " Norton put it in scientific terms. The largest number of beard wearers at the U. of Alaska do it for purely practical reasons. Those being warmth, economy, and time saved. The un- trimmed face fur, oversized parkas, mukluks, and rugged environment just seem to go together. But more than that, today ' s young man under 35 exhibits an impulse to do things his own way. Less emphasis on conformity and less patronism to the establishment provides the option for being unshaven. And since society ' s reasons for beardlessness have always be construed in the vague area of " neat appearances " or " dangerous opinions " we say more power to the pogonophiles. Anyone for Beaver?

For eight years he has had a love affair with these birds of prey. His present love is a beautiful hunting hawk which he keeps on the muskox farm. Bill began taming and training hawks for hunting purposes about eight years ago. Bill s ' ays " You either are fascinated by them or you aren ' t. " He can ' t exactly explain his fascination. He traps his own birds locally and then trains them by taming them. After taming " it is a food re- sponse, that ' s the only real tie " be- tween the bird and the trainer. These hawks are definitely not domesticated pets. Hawks are not scavengers either. The difference between a scavenger and a bird of prey is that scavengers seek ani- mals that are not alive whereas birds of prey seek living rabbits, grouse, ducks and other small ani- mals. PHOTOS BY RANDY JACOBS 57 3 23332 twwwmtttf.t«ms The hawk knew the take off pad was the gloved hand of the trainer but he was a bit confused on where to land. It first tried the trainer ' s out stretched arm, finding it uninviting he settled for the trainer ' s back. Atm tuMtv... ... L ' .l ll When Bill traps these birds he uses an East Indian type of trap. " It is shaped like a dome, a chicken wire thing with monofilm loops of nylon. When the bird comes down, she ' ll be after the pigeon in the trap if she is hungry. She lands, walks around, and eventually she gets her toes caught in the slip- knot loops. " The trapper should check the trap every three hours so that the hawk won ' t hurt itself. After working with hawks for so long, Bill has observed that hawks have individual personalities. In fact, some hawks just won ' t hunt and have to be freed after a week. The males are faster but the females are larger and stronger. In conclusion, Bill says " Hawks are just like other birds up to a point. That point occurs when the hawk becomes hungry-then their whole nature changes. " That is what makes these birds of prey so fascinating and such efficient hunters. 59 N A N O O K S R E V T O P L A Y Stretching hands are what will be needed if the Nanooks hope to have a winning season. • 60 20 GAMES TO GO Coach Sees Rough But Stimulating Season Basketball is the biggest sport on the University of Alaska campus. This year the Nanooks are being led by a new coach, Al Svenningson. Coach Svenningson, a six foot- two bachelor, is a graduate of Winona State College in Minn- esota. Prior to coming to Alaska, he coached the basket- ball team at Wayne State, Wayne, Nebraska for eight years. During this time his win-loss record was 125 and 63. He came to Alaska be- cause he wanted to. When asked how the men turning out for the team here compared with the men at Wayne State, Coach Svenningson re- plied that the main difference between the two was the number of men who had previous ex- perience. There is a lack of men turning out who have had previous experience in either high school or college. He was impressed, however; with the cooperation he has received from everyone. When asked what he would like to have more of he replied as nearly all coaches reply, " more height and experience ' ' . This year there will be no Freshman team. The Freshman and Varsity have combined to take maximum advantage of all men. Since, in Coach Svenn- ingson ' s own words " this is the most demanding schedule ever " , one can understand the motives behind the move. With, schools like Idaho, Port- land State, Hawaii, and Cent- ral Washington State on this years schedule it will take all the talent of the team, the coach and the school to have a winning schedule. If the University is to attract good men from the high schools and other colleges, build state support, and streng- then school spirit " we must play good schools. " You can ' t attract anyone or build spirit if you play the so called ' Mickey Mouse ' schools. On the whole one of the most impressive things about the new coach is his optomism and en- thusiasm. He feels that if one doesn ' t think he can win, he won ' t. But if one thinks he can win, he will win some of the time. He hopes to impart some of his spirit to the school. He tells spirit is a vital part to having a winning team. Coach Svenningson hopes that by keeping the game fast and aggressive with fast breaks, sharp ball handling, and a gen- erally quick game the fans will be very alive and responsive. Coach Svenningson has high hopes both for the Nanooks and the school. By having a sch- eduled twenty-three games, fourteen home games and nine away games, this season bask- etball promises to be good and exciting. Coach Svenningson hopes that basketball at the University of Alaska will develop into the most spirited and interesting event of the school year for the entire state. But all this will take time. As Coach Svenn- ingson says when talking about the team, " it ' s like the state of Alaska, young and inexperien- ced " . Coach Svenningson urges his players to put more hustle into their plays during a practice session. 5W««« K !« C« W » »M « BY TOM RUTLEDGE agaaaasssssaaaagsactsgaswtassty Agressiveness is the key to the game and the Nanooks showed plenty of spirit during their practices. 61 r RUNS 62 Robin Fowler, the director, gets a feeling across to Paul Quist, who played J. B., in a rehearsal for the fall presentation of the Drama Department. Behind the scenes of any play stands a man who plays many parts and all of them well. He is the base... the spine of the entire production. He listens, watches, com- ments, questions, applauds, and, at the end, tears down the set, folds it up and begins to work on the next production. Our man this year is Robin Fowler. BY BETTY SCHUMACHER Originally from England, Mr. Fowler came to Alaska in 1957 after several years in Canada. His first two years in Alaska were spent mainly in the southeastern part of the state. There he gathered experience in theater work, and later used this exper- ience as he worked toward his first degree in drama at the University of Alaska. Mr. Fowler does not know exactly why he chose drama as his major field of study but attributes his interest in it to his mother, " who was quite active in a small community drama club in England. " Because of his mother ' s interest Mr. Fowler never felt out of place in theater work. He was used to props, lights, and the chatter of actors and actresses as they rehearsed their lines. S: : :;: : Foivler J. B. :%W::ftW:W? ¥ftW::SSiS:SSS-:-SS®SS- OVER WITH ENTHUSIASM In 1964 Mr. Fowler transfereed to the University of Hawaii at Honolulu to begin work on his Masters degree. There he took part in a wide variety of plays both as an actor and as a stage hand. Among these plays were Sophocles ' " Oedipus Rex and " Antigone. " Although his graduate work was not fin- ished Mr. Fowler returned to Alaska and accepted the position as head of the drama department here on campus. He hopes to finish the requirements for his Masters degree this year. His plans for the future are not clear. He has " stopped making plans. They are shattered too easily. You might consider me a leaf, I drift around to where lam needed. " To most of his friends and acquaintances, Mr. Fowler is not only a very fine person but also a top-notch director. Their words were proven by Mr. Fowler ' s work in the fall production of Archibald MacLeish ' s play, J. B. J. B. was chosen as the first major production of the year by Mr. Fowler him- self. Last year as a student at the University of Hawaii he played the leading role in a shortened version of MacLeish ' s play. He was greatly impressed by the theme of the play. " The theme is universal; it has meaning for all of us. The plot, of course, deals with a 20th century Job and is centered around his suffering. The entire play is applicable to our times. " He was slightly concerned with the play ' s acceptance in this area " because it deals with catastrophies and Fairbanks has just been through a catastrophy. But I think it shows that these things are universal. " The cast and crew ranged from students to faculty to families to soldiers. Each person had a specific job and a deadline and were expected to carry out their duties to the very best of their abilities. From the opening rehearsal to the closing performance the actors and actresses were alive. They were not just people; they were J. B„ Sarah, Mr. Zuss.Michols... they were the play. It takes a special kind of man to reach out to people and give them the ability to know the feelings of others. Mr. Fowler did this. He gave freely of his time, his ability, his feeling for the spirit in the human being. The result was a brilliantly polished product. Robin Fowler deserves our respect, our appreciation and our thanks for a job well done. 63 64 great!

SISSON TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY Dr. Wood JUST A MIDWESTERN FARM BOY By Jan Goddard I first saw Dr. Wood more than a year ago at the Fairbanks International Airport. The hour was late and he was shaking hands with some very athletic -looking young men. The president, in black Homburg and overcoat, was chipper and smiling I learned later the young men were bound for a basketball -playing tour of Europe, For some reason—perhaps that extra bit of personal attention he gave--I have always been somewhat impressed by the tall, greying president of the University of Alaska. To learn more of the man William Ransom Wood, we set out on a series of in depth interviews. Several lengthly chats gave us a good profile. Dr. Wood ' s day begins at 6:30 a.m. or earlier when he rises to share breakfast with his wife Dorothy Jane, a former nurse. Often he walks to his office and is greeted at 7 a.m. by his efficient secretary, Mrs. Kathleen Berry. The two review his schedule covering roughly the next 10 or 12 hours and important mail is answered. " I get more done in those early hours than I can for the rest of the day, " Dr. Wood confesses. Most of the day is an overly full period of meeting, greeting, thinking, talking, and deciding for the president of Alaska ' s largest institute of higher learning. In fact, one could describe Dr. Wood ' s walnut panelled office in the south wing of Bunnell Building as a sumptuous reception room for aides, guests, secretaries and students. " The topic is hardly ever the same, " he says and in the time we conversed four persons had stopped by to confer with him on the Navy Research Laboratory, discussions about marijuana laws, and educational fund sources for KUAC. Dr. Wood consults with his secretary, Kathleen Berry to start his day at 7 a.m. Dr. Wood ' discusses Alaskan problems with Will Rogers, Jr. A R T S L E T T E R Margaret Aamodt Cynthia Blissard Randy Lee Abbott Harold Arab Paula Charney rfnt rffifinecicitioK George W.

Over 400 students nominated 81 faculty members for the honor of being one of the Top Six Faculty Members. The Top Six contains a member from the Sociology Department, a member from thePsychology Department, and all four members of the Writer ' s Workshop. Faculty mem- bers who received honorable mention are: Walter Benesch, Edwin Webking, Jr., Philip Van Veldhuizen, Robert Smith, William Mendenhall, Greeta Brown, William Loyens, Gertrude Rasche, Elbert Rice, Gene Donner, and Paul Leary. Professor LAURENCE WYATT was both pleased and flattered at being selected. He stated that any evaluation is as valid as the next and since the university exists for the students, the students should be the ones to make the evaluation. It is his opinion that there is the danger that the students just might have voted for entertainment. The professor has a responsibility to the student which is not necessarily to entertain, but the stimu- lation of intellect may be the greatest form of entertainment. Professor DENNY MEHNER, who has resigned as of May 31, 1968, felt that the poll was a pure power thing based on class size; a popularity poll rather than an ability poll. He stated that he deserves the honor because of popula- rity rather than content (defining popu- larity as being one who puts on the best show in class; the best entertainer on campus.) 53 • Professor SARKIS ATAMIAN expressed humble gratitude mixed with some apprehension while wondering if being named was a compliment or left-handed defamation. He stated that he does not take being selected lightly and that he now has a greater sense of responsibility in trying to live up to and justify student confidence. He said: " I still feel that there are others on campus far more worthy of the honor. " Dr. ROBERT KING stated that he is gratified at being named and feels good. He believes that he was judged on what goes on in class. He stated that an instructor is aware of the students ' response in class but that the rating by the students of one instructor with another is a different thing. There is bound to be the feeling on the part of some faculty members that the poll was a mere popularity contest. He has the_ personal feeling that the poll is an honorary thing while ' at the same time believing that being named cannot be used as a quali- fication. In conclusion, he stated that the published re- sults do not change the attitudes of the students. • 54 Dr. EDMUND G. SKELLINGS stated that any faculty mem- ber, himself included, is delighted that his students ap- preciate him. But he doesn ' t think that any student opinion poll is the final assessment of a faculty member. The opinion of collegues both here and at other universities matters equally to him. A professor finds reinforcement for what he is doing in his own field through the publi- cation of work (this being editorial affirmation of his thought) and also through other professional honors. Stu- dent opinion polls are important in that a professor can expect more students to pay attention to what he is saying. He feels that the Tightness or wrongness of his words are up to the students to decide. A popularity poll is the term applied to any student opinion poll by faculty members who don ' t believe there are other reasons behind selection than entertainment. " Students don ' t take courses just for entertainment unless it is the entertainment of ideas. " It is Dr. DONALD KAUFMANN ' s view that both teaching and concern for the students are today on the bottom. He stated that the poll has value because most administra- tions do not appreciate teaching. It is his throught that other faculty members may think less of those chosen due to their thinking of the poll as a strictly popularity item. He said that he feels " neat " and is pleased at be- ing named, remarking that " it ' s nice to know that some- body ' s out there. " Story by: Leo M.

In a single week last summer, Dr. Wood welcomed an ambassador to the U.S. from India, another from Germany, and 100 mining engineers. Luncheons, special dinners, and escorted tours are part and parcel of this function. " A university president has little control over his time, " according to Wood. In an era of the multiversity this has of necessity become the case. Although a campus of 1,500 could hardly be described as a multiversity it is the center of higher education in a young and bustling state. As the president conceives of his job, it is really one of a disti nguished public relations man: " comminieating with the people the university serves ' ' which in this case means all the people of Alaska. It is Wood ' s biggest task to secure substantial financing for the school each year. The effort calls for careful preparation of an upcoming year ' s budget, frequent confering with the University ' s Finance Committee, meeting with the board of Regents, then packing off to Juneau to present it before the Legislature. The job of " seeing the budget through " while trying to convince skeptical legislators of its need is by far Dr. Wood ' s most difficult and challenging. " You see, when I travel to various parts of the state I feel I must visit with these people....or else when I am in Juneau with the budget, they might not be inclined to see me, " he explains. Accordingly, Dr. Wood feels participation in community programs is important. He is a member of the Fairbanks Hospital Committee, a select group looking for ways to finance the much-needed facility. The president also holds a seat on the National Advisory Council for General Medical Sciences and has discussed the possibility of a hospital -medical school complex built on campus. However, Wood believes the Fairbanks hospital will eventually be constructed nearer the city. The president also holds appointments to the Anchorage Regional Export Expansion Council, to the Advisory Committee for General, U.S. Army, Alaska and is chairman of the Alaska Committee on State Fullbright Scholarships, as will as a fellow in the Arctic Institute of North America. For the modest Bill Wood, the position of university president is his most demanding and at the same time most satisfying. The slot tops a steady climb up the professional ladder from public school teaching and athletic coaching in Lake Linden, Michigan to college professor at the University of Iowa and a public school administrator. He calls himself a midwistern farm boy. " There were 48 pupils in my high school and 13 in my senior class, " he recalls. " When I went to college there was the same sort of shift for me as there is for the native students here. " Young Bill, born in 1907, was the only boy in a family of four girls. The Wood ' s grain and cattle farm brought in $625 a year in the 1920 ' s. Ancestors of the family migrated westward to Morgan county Illinois, from Virginia over 100 years earlier and, strangely enough, Bill still has a trace of the broad southern accent. He received his bachelor ' s degree when he was 20 from Illinois College in Jacksonville, the same school which presented him with an honorary doctor of laws degree in 1960. Wood earned his doctorate in English from the University of Iowa, in 1939. During World War II, the doctor served as education officer for the Seventh Fleet Service Force in the South Pacific, and for a time led a training force of 1,000 in New Guinea and the Philippine Islands. He was given the rank of captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve in 1964 and still attends reserve training every summer, taking time out to follow correspondence courses. Dr. Wood pulled a sheaf a papers from a desk drawer. " Introduction to Space Technology " was the title of one of the booklets -- a little far out he indicated, but still the marks were high. Following the war, Dr. Wood joined the U.S. Office of Education, where in 1953 he became program planning officer and was the first to help develop the Community College program. A year later he worked in Libya trying to establish resources for higher education there. Six years as vice president of the university of Nevada preceded his current post. Energetic in these roles, Wood also keeps a host of civic and professional memberships. Never a man to waste a minute, Bill Wood keeps going full steam through the summers. What many consider priceless vacation time, Dr. Wood spent as instructor for summer sessions in English and education at Harvard, American University and others. During high school teaching years, the lanky bask etball pro upped his income as a salesman and buyer for a sporting goods company. Tucking away baskets for the teams Kelly Springfields and Michigan Mentors, he covered nine seasons playing in several midwestern states. " It took me a long time to grow up, " he laughingly admits. Only his height and verve indicate the man was once an avid basketball player ( " I only went to college to play basketball. " ) The same man maintains a consuming interest in literature and one of its most famous poets, John Keats. " One of his current favorites is " The True Believer " by the anti- intellectual longshoreman Eric Hoffer. He heartily recommends this book. An author and experienced editor himself, Wood says , " I ' m not a good writer, never was, but I am a good editor and sometime I want to get back to it. " The list of books he has edited and written hints at Wood ' s own outlook: " On your Own, " " Looking Ahead, " " From Here On, " " All Around the Land, " " Youth and the World, " and " To be an American. " An independent and resourceful individual, William Wood feels order is important and places great emphasis on the efficiency of wellformed policy. He is an attentive member of the Methodist Church which explains his distaste for strong alcholic beverages. He does, however, enjoy light wines and usually serves nothing more potent than a liqueur but, as one observer put it, " The Wood ' s just don ' t understand why people never stick around at their cocktail parties. " Dr. Wood ' s attitude regarding effective policy shows through clearly when questioned about the new university governaunce, where students and faculty will have a stronger voice in administration. " I think if the elected act wisely there will be no problem, but if not... I ' m just afraid. If they become wrapped up in managerial functions I feel it will be a waste of their time and talents, " he said. To controversy over the use of marijuana on campus Wood reiterated the regulations: the university is not a law enforcement agency. Even when pressed by an enthusiastic young legislator Dr. Wood stuck to the book and consequently earned praise form several of his most negative critics. When conversing, the president frequently removes his black, horn- rimmed glasses. Thought fills his expression with a furrowed brow that is soon followed by an encompassing and Dr. and Mrs. Wood enjoy one of the dances at the university entirely convincing if not altogether genuine smile. Most questions put to the man are followed by a reasonably lengthy answer, often tending towards the general. Indeed, to get the man to particularize sometimes is a challenge. Dr. Wood has a large gift for diplomacy, although he has never been active in party politics. " I am politically sensitive though, " he says, " You have to be if you are concerned for the university. " The president ' s goal from the time he arrived at the U of A eight years ago has been to build a modern campus. In that time expansion has been continuous. Two dormitories, an academic building have gone up with still another underway on the north end of the plaza. A university campus for Anchorage is in the first phase of construction and $10 million for a new social science building and student activity building for College has been requested. ■ ' I feel it is unfair for a university to seek new students without first being certain it can provide a learning program of instruction that would be meaningful to them. " Dr. Wood said. " We should offer everbroadening programs so we can legitimately attract a wide student interest. You can over- spread or be too narrow, " he continued, " and I kind ' ve like to be in the middle. " The future of this school as he sees it will probably find a burgeoning research center at College while the Anchorage campus assumes a larger student population. Until then, William Wood will keep up that round the clock schedule. Dr. Wood gets ready to dictate a letter to his secretary, Kathleen Dr. Wood puts in many hours of work at his desk each day m About Students Dr. Wood gestures in his unique style Dr. Wood comments on UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA students: " — Most mature and responsible groups of people I ' ve had the opportunity to work with. Part of it is due, I think, to the nature of their environment and their response to it. " ---They have no hesitancy to express their differing points of view. The students always seem ready to discuss the basic issues rather than minor matters. " -—I think we have a good many adjustments to make in our procedural relationship. I hope that we do not reach a point of self satisfaction which would most likely indicate a static condition. Alaska really demands a lively, growing university. " —-One thing I like is that the students are involving themselves in activities outside the campus. This results in an understanding of the mores of the community among other things. These discussions on marijuana were not very stimulating but they were participation and involvement in the problems of the community...helping to define problems more accurately and in terms more understandable. " ---I think we ought to develop programs for this particular environ- ment. We need to restructure a total program of instruction and activities to meet immediate and long term requirements of persons living in the last third of the 20th century with specific emphasis of living and working in the north.

Hao Ken Humphreys 1 2 I 3 I S5 S 6 All of the work was periodically inspected by $ Dr. Hosley and occasionally by visiting and well- |: known archeologists, such as Dr. Hans-Georg Bandi, g in the sun glasses, from Switzerland. g The first major task was to make a complete survey K| of the site and to connect the 1966 survey to the :$ 1967 survey. In the second photo Bill Hao records S the readings that Mike Aamodt got on the transit, :£ Ken Humphreys and Ed Milligrock aline and measure $ the distance between wooden stakes used to mark :•:•; the corners of the squares that were excavataed. g Aamodt checked the survey notes for possible •: error before the excavation began. After the survey the particular squares were chosen « for excavation, the bush and small trees had to :;|i be removed and this was done by (from left to :g right): Milligrock, Humphreys, and Hao. g Following the clearing, string had to be strung in j:;: the north-south and east-west grid system to make g it possible to locate the excavation on a map. jji; Once the string was strung and further clearing £: was done the two meter square was divided into j: one meter squares, as is shown by Mike Aamodt iji and Bill Hao. $ During the summer of 1967, three Uni- versity students, under the direction of Dr., Hosley of the Anthropology Department, conducted an Archeological excavation on the bluff over -looking the broad Tenana Valley next to the present location of the totem pole. The following is background material on the excavation site gathered from an unpub- lished article presented at the Annual Meet- ing of the Society for American Archeology May 4, 1967, at Ann Arbor, Michigan, entit- led " The Campus Site Excavation — 1966 " by Edward Hosley and Jeffrey Mauger. " The bluff is apparently river-cut, and doubtless the Chena River, now a mile dis- tant, or perhaps even the Tanana River it- self, butted against the base of the bluff. The view to the west and south is a command- ing one, and was undoubtedly chosen by its occupants for this reason. The site is situ- ated approximately 100 yards east of the present administration building on the Uni- versity of Alaska campus. " The Campus Site was discovered in 1933 and excavation was begun the following year by two students, John Dorsh and Albert Dic- key, under the direction of Mr. Childs Frick of the American Museum of Natural History. " The 1934 excavations began at the extreme brow of the hill and worked uphill. Appoxi- mately 1,500 square feet were exposed, and 70 cubic yards of earth excavated. Some 400 artifacts, including waste material, were re- covered, including " two dozen " worked im- plements, some hammerstones, a " possible hearth " and bone fragments. " Further excavation took place in 1935 and 1936, in part under the direction of Froelich Rainey. In 1939, Rainey reported that the total excavation ran along the brow of the hill for 30 meters and upslope for about 20 meters. Artifact material was found in all sections and in an adjacent field for a radius of 100 meters. Between 1936 and 1966, there were no further formal excavations aside from occasional test-pitting, mostly with negative results. " N. C. Nelson (1935, 1937) first noted the resemblances between material in the Cam- pus Site and Old World materials, particu- larly with respect to the microcores in the site. As noted by Rainey in 1939, and con- firmed by the 1966 excavations, the limits of the site have yet to be determined, and it is the largest single site in interior Alaska of comparable age. " By spring, 1966, the old excavations were hidden to the eye of the casual observer. Erosion and vegetation had blurred their margins. A parking lot covered the portion of the site north of the original excavations, and automobile and foot traffic, as well as exposure of the original excavations them selves, had resulted in a distinct erosion problem and threat to the site. " More importantly, the location of the Cam- pus Site had been chosen by the University Administration as the location of a Campus Lookout . .. and the summer of 1967 will doubtless be the last opportunity for excava- tion in this site before it is destroyed . . . the 1966 excavations were in the nature of - = f 8 1 11 27 The seventh photo shows the square, marked off in one meter sections and ready for excavation. Our tools consisted of shovels, rakes and an occas- ional ax used on stubborn roots. Humphreys brings the tools needed for excavation. In order to keep track of the location of any artifact found in the diggings, the method used was to remove a small section of sod, 25 centimeters square - and five centimeters thick, as is shown by Bill Hao in photos nine and ten. Once the sod section was removed, it was placed on the 1 4 inch sifting screen to be gone through in search of artifact material. : 93Sv » g 12 The next step was to break the section of sod 5: :| up and sift it through the wire mesh, keeping an ' $ :•£ eye peeled for possible artifacts. j-j: g 13 Once an artifact was found, it was quickly cleaned, | j and a notation was made on the record sheet as ' : $ to the location, depth and any other pertinent i g information. ;i| 14 The next step, usually at the end of the day when Sj g the digging and sifting was completed, was to 1 wash the artifacts. 8 m a salvage operation, and were conducted under less than ideal circumstances. The work was carried out under the direction of Professor H. Morris Morgan, utilizing three advanced majors of the Department of Anthropology and Geography of the University of Alaska. " The three students were Jeff Mauger, Dave Schimberg and Pete Schledermann. " Excavations were aimed at salvaging as much as possible of the site under strict controls, in an attempt to discern possible stratification and the true nature of the site. It was hoped that datable materials would be recovered. All excavated material was screened, and this plus the fact that the re maining site was more extensive than antici- pated led to a failure to completely excavate the remnants of the site. An estimated 25- 40% of the site remains unexcavated. All portions of the excavations were heavy in terms of artifacts yield. " The Campus Site appears to be a combi- nation look-out and chipping station, judging from the total artifact inventory; it is unstra- tified, and displays clear parallels with other interior Alaskan sites, notably Teklanika, Donnelly, and Tangle Lakes, ... as well as the lower bands of Onion Portage on the Kobuk River. " The 1967 Campus Site Excavation was con- ducted by Michael Aamodt, as the Senior Field Research Assistant, William Hao and Ken Humphreys as the Research Assistants, and several students attending the Upward Bound Program that had an interest in learn- ing the techniques of Archeological Research. Pat Nusunginya of Barrow, and Edmorris Milligrock of Nome were the students that assisted them as part of their course curri- culum. For two months, beginning the last week of May, they followed the procedure set up by Dr. Hosley and Jeff Mauger for the pro- per excavation of this particular site. The procedure is shown in the photos that have been donated by the University of Alaska Museum. The excavation and collection of these artifacts is only a segment of the long pro- cess of archeaological research. Further analysis of the material collected is carried on throughout the year under laboratory con- ditions. tt I 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 24 26 27 SW: Aiter the artifacts were cleaned they were ckecked $ over and, in rare instances, pieces were glued back •:•: together as is the case of the artifact pictured. :•:•: Finally the artifact was prepared for a permanent 8 marking and a side had to be chosen that would •:; not be exposed to the public in the event of even- ::•:■ tual display in the museum. $ Then the number was inked on the object and covered :•:•: with a coat of varnish to prevent the number from « accidentally being removed. 8 Daily records were kept of everything performed, :•:• everything found and even every photograph taken. :•:• The soil into which they dug was divided into :■:• distinct layers of soil with differing color schemes for each layer.

Such sports as tumbling, gym- nastics, water polo, ice hockey and volleyball are enjoyed by only a very small number of students. Although the intramurals program is well known, few students take advantage of it. These pages are dedicated to these activities and to the hope that more students will take advantage of the recrea- tional facilities offered.

The trips, however, are not the drug- induced kind, but are stimulated ascents to altitudes of 16 to 20 thousand feet in the Institute ' s high altitude chamber. A group of thirty volunteers has been accepted to participate in experiments to study the effects of lack of oxygen and low pressure. The project is financed by a grant from the Department of Defense which pro- vides an annual budget of over 200,000 dol- lars for the study. Subjects used in the experiements are paid $4.00 an hour, but to many of them the financial return is only a partial moti- vation to participate in the project. Results of the study will have ultimate practical application to mountain climbers. In fact many of the participants are mountaineers who are personally concerned with the work. The experiments consist of a variety of tests to determine the effect of high altitudes on physical and mental abilities. An electro - encephlograph (E.E.G.) records changes in brain waves. Changes in other physical characteristics such as heartbeat are checked periodically. Subjects perform tests of muscular co- ordination and also work out various pro- blems to measure mental ability. In this instance, students " taking trips " are a real contribution to scientific progress. Army Spec. 5 E.1 Freeland attaches electrodes to Dr. Schumacher prior to high altitude chamber experiment. Electrodes record pulse records and other bodily functions. Clarice Dukeminier (L) checks pulse rate of Dr. Jack Pettijohn (center) before simulated ascent to 16,000 feet. Dr. George Schumacher (R) waits his turn. Andy White stares intently at control panel gauges while bringing chamber pressure eq.ial to 16,000 feet for experiments. 48 Dr. George Schumacher, foreground, concentrates on mathematical problems while fellow researcher, Dr. Jack Pettijohn, peddles work simulating bicycle in high altitude chamber. Dr. Schumacher peddles work bike under normal conditions for comparison data. The project is studying physiological effects of altitude. Dr. Schumacher ' s performance will be quite different at 16,000 feet in the chamber.

Ronan Short points a finger at Mary Hughes, center, and her weeping companion. • During the Fine Arts Festival this year the UA Drama Workshop perfo- rmed its biggest and final production of the year...Bertolt Brecht ' s play, Caucasian Chalk Circle. The setting of the play was post World War II Russia and it dealt with the migration problem of a group of Russian peasants. True to Brechtian form, the play offered insight into the social, cul- tural and religious problems of to- day. Although many parts had to be dou- bled due to a lack of participation, the play was a great success. Hats off once again to this year ' s director, Robin Fowler.

EXPERIMENT • in i IN DANGER 55 After throwing a can at a 2nd story window From the old ways... Ginger collapses as glass fills the air. Ooops! Caught in the act! Maggie Sheehan, Ginger Bain and an unidentified co-ed are let in by Erica Keller. Just wait ' till Judicial! This year a campus wide experi- ment for second semester fresh- men women was put into effect. It involves eliminating all dormi- tory hours and issuing each se- cond semester coed a key. This had never been done before on our campus. Having hours did establish some sort of discipline in the first semes- ter freshmen women. However, many consequences resulted from their being late.. .just mention it to a Judicial Council member...she can relate many an unbelievable tale. Nevertheless many freshmen did find a way to beat the hours. They borrowed keys from upper class- 56 men, came in with someone who had a key, threw snowballs at a friend ' s window so that she could open the door, hoped that the door was left ajar or broken (as it was for a while), or even crawled in a window. Last semester all such worries ended, with the aid of the keys coeds, came and went as they pleased. However, other problems cropped up. Losing a key cost a coed ten dollars and keeping track of the keys was sometimes more of a pain than beating the hours. Many responsibilities also came along with the key. Wickersham and Skarland Halls rose to the oc- casion. Wick issued a statement to the effect that such a responsi- Story Uy : Maggie Sheehan bility would be well handled, while Skarland declared an edict which stated the following: 1. No women would be in men ' s dorms after hours. 2. Others could not, be let in with someone else ' s key. 3. No keys would be lent out. So far the tensions brought on by this experiment do not seem to have had any ill effects on the coeds. They go merrily along their way, hoping not to get caught in breaking any rules. Meanwhile, the administration is waiting to weight the results of the coeds ' GPA ' S to note any sub- stantial decrease as compared to the first semester. To the new!
