A strong advocate of the collegiate model of decision making and student participation, Chancellor Cutler institutionalized the roles of the faculty and students in the policy and advisory funct- ions of the university. Believing in excellence and understanding, Chancellor Cutler has endeavored to promote quality education and has successfully kept in touch with the needs of students. He has said that institutional excellence is achieved by the demands students place on their instructors; he has given us this challenge. He is remembered best for his pioneering spirit and his enthus- iastic involvement in the university community. Expanding our ac- ademic community across oceans, he initiated the exchange progr- ams for students, faculty, and research. He has touched our lives; Chancellor Cutler and his wife, Enid, have warmly attended funct- ions in the dormitories, the commons, athletic games, at the bon- fire, and at many other social functions of our campus community. He has touched our minds; the Chancellor has spoken and listened at the fireside chats and has provided us an example for emulation. He has been, and shall be, a focal point of our memory of the univ- ersity. We owe him a great deal, but can only repay a little. Thank-you Chancellor Cutler.

During this decade UAF has grown physically with the addition of many buildings. Enrollment has fluc- tuated from year to year, with the Uni- versity experiencing a tremendous incr- ease in new students towards the end of the decade. The University we ' ve all come to know is truly unique. Despite being the farthest north of any school in the U.S., we lead an extraordinary way of life here in Alaska. From trudging off to class in down parkas and bunny boots at 40 below, we go to meeting the midnight sun with fervor. Many of us have expe- rienced the thrill of backpacking on the high- est mountain in North America, the majestic Mount McKinley. The one aspect that has not changed in ten years is the community spirit we possess here at UAF, Home of the Nanooks. History 5 m Dave Hall ' All that I have are these to remember you 6 H istory w Back in the days before Gruening, before Ras- muson Library, and before Wood Center, campus traditions which are still honored today tied this University together. " I ' ll always remember the night Mcintosh Hall challenged the rest of the dorms to a streaker ski. " Has anyone seen anyone clad only in ski boots behind Lathrop lately? Students throughout the decade express- ed their concern over administrative decis- ions. The dismissal of four English profess- ors without any stated reason in 1971 led 200 concerned students to an all-night pro- test in Bunnell Building. The Associated St- udents of the University of Alaska public- ally condemned their University bec ause of their feeling of isolation, and inability to affect social change. The Equal Rights Amendments of March 1972 had a strong impact on the women here at the Uni- versity. Teri Smith, former Polar Star editor cited that " the growing realization among women is that they had a right to expect more from the world than a sinkful of dirty dishes. " The Affair, Valentines Day dance. «£T TTf 1 lllllilllilllHIH History 7 II Take me back in time ... " Construction of the Fine Arts Concert Hall. 8 History Nanook squad on home turf. On the academic side, the Department of Jour- nalism and Broadcasting began to publish their yearly magazine, Alaska Today. Many other acade- mic programs found their origin during this time. Students were now given a wider range of academ- ics to choose from. The completion of Wood Center in 1973 marked the opening of a multi-recreation center on campus. Starvation Gulch, already long established, exhi- bited huge towers of junk, culminating in the trad- itional bonfire. With the threat of the draft gone, enrollment plunged later that year. Students no longer had to attend school to avoid being drafted. Approval of a 39.5 million dollar general oblig- ation bond by voters in November signaled the go- ahead for the construction of new buildings on all University of Alaska campuses. The initial funding for the 1,500 seat ice hockey rink came from this source. The completion of the Concert Hall in 1974 ranked it among the finest in the Northwest. The impact of the Trans-Alaska pipeline held enroll- ment down, when a light mixture of Goldrush ' 98, and Oilrush ' 74 came together. History 9 . . . we sure had a good time 10 History 21-gun salute for the opening of Rasmuson Library. Perhaps the alumni would remember the night Mac Hall, once again on the prowl, stole all the toilet seats from Nerland, only then to take a trophy case in which to display them. To this day that trophy case still remains in the lounge. Tra- ditional events such as the Equinox Marathon, the Affair, and Winter Carnival broke the monotony, and enhanced the spirit of UAF. On July 4, 1976, UAF not only celebrat- ed Independence Day, but also the 60th ann- iversary of the laying of its original corner- stone. Women students outnumbered males for the first time in UAF ' s history in I976- the Bicentennial Year. Alaska celebrated International Women ' s Year with a conference in May I977, and Angela Liston became the first female ASUA president in history. Later that year. President Neil Humphrey unex- pectedly resigned with this comment, " After three months of exeptionally hard work by my staff and me, I conclude that the financial and administr- ative policy of the University are not correctable at the present time. " Also during the year, the last known photogr- aph was taken of the Tradition Stone and its poss- essors. " Here lies tradition- 1957.

The Fairbanks campus remained the hub bub of activity with new developments in research at the Institutes of Agricultural Sciences, Arctic Biology, Marine Sciences, Social and Economic Research, and Water Resources. In 1979, in response to Title IX regulation of the 1972 Education amendments to the Constit- ution, UAF established a women ' s volleyball team, and locker rooms for the girls ' basketball team. For the first time, the womens ' basketball team budget equalled that of the mens ' team. Foster Diebold stepped down from the office, as President Jay Barton, fifth president in six years, took his position with the intention of " turning from the problems of the past, to the real business of our institution- Education. " A variety of events occured in 1979 setting a new pace for the University. Tim Burgess was appointed Student Regent, making him the first representative from the Fair- banks campus in many years.

With the donation of typesetting equipment to the Department of Journalism and Broadcasting from several newspapers around the state, the Nor- thern Sun was established. This provided the camp- us with two newspapers, and gave competitive spir- it to the long-established Polar Star. After a student referendum vote that year, a new ASUA Constitution was drawn up, replacing several parts of the old outdated one. Also in stu- dent government, the ASUA Legislative Council became very instrumental in getting the state leg- islature to fund a portion of the remaining debt on Wood Center. As a result, the student activity fee was lowered by $30 a year. ..■■■■ Geology 101 at the Permafrost Tunnels. " started way back when " ■mm The " original " Beluga. History 17 The first Associated Students of the University of Alaska presidential impeachment came in the Spring of 1980. Roy Geirsbach was ousted, necess- itating ASUA Senate President, Bill Zybach to fin- ish out the term of ASUA president. During this same period, the University ' s facul- ty retention policy was challenged. Students showed their displeasure with student rallys and several lett- ers to the administration against the non-retention of Journalism Professor Jake Highton. Despite stud- ent protest Highton was let go. The new University Museum on West Ridge ope- ned for the 1980 Commencement along with the long awaited opening of Patty Gym Ice Arena. As recent as this past Fall, UAF enrollment has exceeded the housing capacity of present dormit- ory facilities, forcing many students to live in dorm lounges temporarily. As a result, guest facilities once located in Bartlett Hall became permanent student housing. ( ttmC-S V Anything goes in Snoball!

The past ten years have indeed been those of great change, to the benefit of all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.

Presidents of the University during the past 1 years William Wood 1960 - June 1973 Robert Hiatt July 1973 - February 1977 Charles Ferguson Interim, February 1977 - August 1977 24 History Neil Humphrey August 1977 - December 1977 Foster Diebold December 1977 - July 1979 The decade of the 70 ' s began with the conclusion of William Wood ' s reign as President of the University of Alaska. As a Polar Star editorial said upon his resignation in 1973, " Wood will be the last great administrative autocrat and with him will go a big piece of the machine. " The financial controversy which surrounded the conclusion of his 13-year tenure as president left a haunting legacy for later presidents. During the last three years of his term, the students had only recently forgotten that he was responsible dissolving their only effective and powerful tool, their student corporation (1964). Students again found themselves subject to what appeared to be administrative fiat. After initiating a plan for a student union building in the mid-sixties, and securing a loan from the legislature in the early 70 ' s, students were dismayed to discover that their designs for the building were discarded, they had no effective voice in the administration of their Union, and that their building would be named the Wood Campus Center. Robert Hiatt was the next president of the university. In I974, after calling for cuts in a number of academic programs, students donned black armbands in protest. Under his administration the university ' s problems with millions of dollars in cash-flow became public. In the turmoil he resigned and Charles Ferguson assumed the interim position. Neil Humphrey was hired but soon resigned. " After three months of exceptionally hard work by my staff and me, I conclude that the financial and administrative problems of the University are not correctable at this time. ..the university has, unfortunately, been very poorly administered in recent years, " he stated. Foster Diebold was selected by the regents to serve a limited term. It was hoped that he would bring the university to a point of financial and administrative accountability. During his term a national search for a permanent president led to the appointment of Jay Barton. President Barton has labored to bring the university out of the crisis period of the 70 ' s and favorably into the new decade. He has reestablished the fiscal and administrative accountability. His planning process has integrated students in a way never contem- plated by his predecessors. By initiating policies of student and faculty participation and by developing good rapport with state authorities Barton has made the future of the university look bright.

This is exactly what Early Orientation for New Students was designed to do. Eighty incoming freshmen were involved in the Student Orientation Service ' s brainchild introducing them to college life and helping to get them through the rigors of registration . EONS is a pilot program aimed at helping rel- ieve the tension associated with first college exper- iences. A barbecue and various get togethers in the upper dorms gave the freshmen a taste of college life. Finally, a registration " dry run " he 6 in Wood Center helped prepare them for their stay at UAF. Activities 29 Hurry up and wait Remind you of the stock yards? Many students believe the rest of the semester is a breeze, once they survive registration. Being herded through the many lines to the various stations only to find out that the wrong card was stamped or they were in the incorrect line was too much to handle some- times. " We ' re sorry, you need to go to station G, but before you do that you must have your advisor ' s signature " or, " the line begins at the other end of the concert hall! " Student ' s experienced this process every sem- ester, and inevitably the complaints led to modifications in the procedure which were always supposed to streamline or take the agony out of it. However, it always seemed to get worse instead of better. 30 Activities BBQ The Chancellor ' s Barbecue began many years ago with former President Patty, and continues to be a popular early Fall event at UAF. The barbecue is now held at the Chancellor ' s home and serves to help students get acquainted with the faculty and administration informally. It ' s also a great place for lots of food, fun, and meeting new people. Activities 31 fA i msm •C Who do we follow????? « . ' Sue Regan warming up.

The annual Equinox Marathon continues to be a grueling test of endurance for several hundred runners and hikers each year. Stan Justice, 31, fin- ished this years ' run in a record time of 2 hours, 44 minutes and 59 seconds. Helen Dessinger was the first of the women finishing in 3:49:59. The Equinox, which began in 1963, is said to be the second toughest in the U.S., one step behind the Pikes ' Peak Marathon in Colorado. The diffe- rence in elevation throughout the course is 2,000 feet. The marathon, run in cold, icy conditions this past fall was supported by more than 190 runners and 150 hikers. Broken down into five classes: youth, collegian, junior veteran, veteran, and centurian, the marathon allows anyone to test their endurance. Awards are given to the top five men and women at a banquet following the race. Those who finish the race in less than 7 hours are given a presitigious Equinox patch, certainly something to be proud of. The Equinox Marathon is held each year on the Saturday closest to the autumnal equinox. See if you can recieve an Equinox patch - get out and join the crowd!

Activities 33 Battle of Tino Hitchcock Tina Hitchcock the Beef Tina Hitchcock Tina Hitchcock Grunt and bear it!!!!! The Battle of the Beef is an annual intramural event which attracts students from every dorm. In years past, the winners were treated to a steak din- ner in town. However, now everyone recognizes the winners by the brightness of their orange Intramu- ral Champion t-shirts The constant rivalry between upper and lower dorms adds a real competitive spirit to the festivit- ies. This years winners, Lathrop and Wickersham Hall can testify that this event is no bull!!!!! 34 Activities Starvation Gulch Starvation Gulch, the annual UAF carnival, beg- ins with a wood-gathering competition between the dorms for the traditional bonfire. This years ' bon fire award went to Mac Hall, in which a giant eff- igy of Ayatollah Khomeini burned in a blaze of glory. Later in the evening the assemblage moved to Beluga for the carnival events. Various booths in- cluded: a kissing booth, keg throw, assassins, mass- age booths, log sawing, food concessions and the introduction of the buck-a-tuck. Buck-a-tuck, a craze currently sweeping colleges across the nation, provides for a client of your choice to be tenderly tucked into bed with a story, a lullaby, a good- night kiss and even a teddy bear companion, for the measley sum of $1 .00! a 4 A w % Hk B rati H UA f ' , 4 . £Mr .» »i-iJPte: rm 2 !

The stud- ent association and other university groups have traditionally hosted political forums to better inform the students. This past year was no except- ion. " Self-styled liberal " or " arch conservative " , " conservationist " or " developer " . Two debates sponsored by ASUA and moderated by organ- izer Bill Zybach helped interested students and faculty gain a better perspective of the philosophies of state senate candidates Charlie Parr and Glenn Hackney, and U.S. Senate candidates Clark Gruening and Frank Murkowski.

He has been the only pres- idential candidate to visit the university. He spoke of the student ' s need to understand his party. Hosted by the Bartlett Lecture Series, Russian dissident Alexander Ginzburg spoke to over 800 people in the Concert Hall about his experiences in the Soviet Union. Appearing in March, Ginzburg captivated the audiance as he spoke through an interpreter about his efforts to promote human rights in the USSR. Alexander Ginzburg, exiled Russian dissident. Career The annual Career Information Fair, spon- sored by the UAF Placement Center, provides the opportunity for students to find out about career potentials within the state. Representatives from various governmental agencies and private corpor- ations set up tables in Wood Center to allow stud- ents to ask informal questions about the types of jobs they may be interested in pursuing careers in, or simply for summer employment. Sometimes the Fair becomes the starting point for a lifetime pos- ition, sometimes a helpful piece of advice for secu- ring a summer job. 38 Activities Chancellor ' s Fireside Chats Every Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 Chancellor Culter brought his open-door-policy directly to the students at his Fireside Chat. According to Cutler, student participation varied from zero to 200, depending on the particular issues facing the campus. This exercise exemplified Cutler ' s philosophy toward student involvement and interaction with the administration. From members of the faculty to the Governor of Alaska, many people participated in this forum provided to the students. Mark McCollum and his yoda. 40 Activities Bonnie Raitt Bonnie Raitt — commonly known as " the soulful singer of the blues " , performed in the Patty Gym on September 25, 1980 before a rousing Alas- kan audience. Raitt ' s repertoire included traditional blues tunes, jazz, calypso and many contemporary songs that brought her to fame. She is best know for her recent musical contribution to the movie Urban Cowboy. Bonnie Savage rolling out the red carpet? McCollum Mark McCollum — on his nationwide tour, McCollum entertained students at the Fairbanks campus in late 1980. The multi-talented enter- tainer highlighted his guitar and singing perfor- mance with impressions. From the seriousness of Led Zepplin to the comedy of Kermit the Frog, his imitations delighted the audience. E N T E R T A I N M E N T ■ s is O Rock and roll at its loudest!!!! The Elvin Bishop concert on April 16 ran neck-n- neck competition with Mac Hall and fourth floor Moore for bringing the loudest music to UAF in a long time. But the large crowd at the Patty Gym see- med to enjoy it to the hilt. The hog farmer from California gave the audie- nce their moneys worth in music ranging from rock- and roll to rhythm and blues to country. The combination of band solos. Bishop humor and audience participation lead to repeated encores. Even as the last power cord was pulled from the wall, the sounds of Elvin Bishop in Alaska probably still echoed in the ears of his fans.

' % t i a m$w $ K I L«. i i jU A 1 1 L Coffeehouse The evening unfolds as coffee and cookies are set out, a fire is lit in the fireplace, and people casually seat themselves around the dimly lit stage. One by one musicians arrive, some going off to a corner to finely tune their instruments, others to sit among the crowd of 70 now gathered. It ' s 7:00 p.m. and Roy Corral, student adviser for Student Orientation Ser- vices, steps up to the microphone to once again wel- come everyone to the SOS Coffeehouse. The Coffeehouse is a monthly event held on cam- pus in the lower lounge of Wood Center. The open mic hosts a variety of talent, from the soft sounds of Willowcreek to the zany antics of The Outer Mongo- lians. Alex, John, Charlie, Marshall, Kim and Roy The Bartlett Outer Mongolians. Activities 43 Cindy, Bill, Denise, Fred, Gene; 4 dwarfs and Prince Charming. Halloween costume winners. Kathy Desinger, " my next victim. Moore Night at the Pub. 44 Activities The Pub Robert George, Pub manager. " Let ' s go Pubbing " . Five years of vigorous student effort paid off in a new state law which permitted the opening of The Pub on November 8, 1975. The Pub has been more than a drinking es- tablishment, it has played the role of social center for numerous activities in the student union build- ing. Hosting concerts, dances, political and social forums, movies and a variety of entertainment, it also doubles as the Sir Walter ' s restaurant at lunch time. It provides a place for students to study, relax and socialize. For the past three years, Robert George, a former student, has creatively and dynamically managed The Pub. He has begun such annual traditions as: Cheapo-Sleazo-Flasher Night, Halloween Party, Marie Osmond ' s Birthday Party, The Nipple Sucking Contest. George ' s innovations have created many fond memories. Nathan Powell sucks. Activities 45 The Affair The sixth floor Moore gals with S.A. Meg Carney, added an interesting flair to this years event. The walls of the dining and dance areas were decorated with portraits of those gals attending The Affair en- circled by a red heart. The personal touch added class and maybe tradition to the matter.

" PLAYS The U of A Drama Workshop celebrates its 10th year in the Fine Arts Theater at the same time the Denali returns to campus to publish its decade edition. The drama workshop has been anything but inactive in those 10 years. They have put on scores of plays which have brought the Fairbanks and the university com- munities together for cultural entertainment. In 1971 " Man of La Mancha " opened in the finest theater in Alaska, and with the close of the 1981 season and technical upgrading which occurred over the decade, " Arms and the Man " was performed ' in one of the finest facilities on the West Coast . There were four productions this year. " Buried Child " , the I978 Pultizer Prize winner by Sam Shepard, opened the first semester. The cast included Richard Ussery as Dodge, Barbara Gorman as Haley, Ray Parshall as Tilden and T. Frady as Shelly. The second play was Oscar Wilde ' s " The Importance of Being Earnest " , which is a high comedy. It was effectively performed by actors Greg Gustafson as John, Ray Parshall as Algernon, Gene De Wilde as the Reverend, Jim Howard as Merrriman, Joel Mattson as Lane, Shelly Reed as Lady Bracknell, Paula Line as Gwendolyn, Tracy Johnson as Cecily and Nora Young as Miss Prism. The play ' s flip dialogue and witty manner was heartily received by the audience. ' A convincing human document of ' love in our time ' portrays the story behind the workshop ' s third play, " Two for the Seesaw " by William Gibson. The two person cast was Sam Skaggs as Jerry and Shelly Reed as Gittel. The final production was George Bernard Shaw ' s " Arms And The Man " , This, one of Shaw ' s most popular comedies, capitalizes on the man ' s most persistent follies, the romantic concept of war. Shaw used this theme and combined it with man ' s sen- timental concept of love to produce, for the com- munity, through the workshop, a hilarious and ironic comedy. The main characters were Maribeth Back as Raina, Pat Smith as Catherine, Paula Line as Louka, Greg Gustafson as the Captain, Thor Melchior as the Officcer, Jim Howard as Nicola, Bruce Rogers as Paul and Ray Parshall as Sergius. These two pages are dedicated to the apathetic majority at UAF. Susan MacEachern, Bartlett RA, at the Beach Party. Ron Burke Cleo Chernoff 50 Activities William Ransom Wood Center As the building opens at 7 a.m. the coffee and donut munchers head directly to the Snack Bar for their morning fix. It ' s then off to class or a leisurely morning of soap operas and napping in the lounge areas, or, heaven forbid, studying in the sun on the open balcony. Then, as the crowd rolls in for lunch at Sir Walters, a friendly game of pool, foosball, pinball or electronic wizardry can be seen in the games area. Those few lucky souls who have a break in their af- ternoon classes can wear off their lunch by renting skiis, ice skates or bicycles. Once classes are over, it ' s time to check out the campus happenings on the Information board or check to see what the student Senate and ASUA have been doing.

Returning to the Vatican after a 10- day Asian tour, the Pope ' s visit was termed a " technical layover " for refueling, but for the people of Alaska who had the priviledge of seeing the Pope, the visit was cause for celebra- tion. No official estimate was reported on the size of the crowd that gathered in the Anchorage Park Strip, but it was reported that it was the largest crowd to ever assemble for a single event in the history of Alaska. One hundred lucky Alaskans received communion from Pope Paul II during the open-air mass, and the 40,000 to 60,000 peo- ple listened intently during the service. The Pope was greeted by cloudy skies and cold temperatures when he arrived in Alaska, but the weather didn ' t seem to bother him or the thous- ands who saw him. He closed his service with an open invitation to all Alaskans to come see him at the Vatican in Rome, but added it might be a good idea to change clothes first. by Todd Paris Activities 55 1 981 Alaska Native Arts Festival Richord MonTagna Alaska Native artists and perfomers from across the state come to the Fairbanks campus for the ann- ual festival. One of the purposes of the festival is to provide a basis for cultural exchange. The performers dance and informally demonstrate arts and crafts. The festival is produced by Native students at the university and is also sponsored in part by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. 56 Activities HWMaWl SOS The key word at Student Orientation Services, located on the 5th floor of the Gruening building, is HELP. SOS is aimed at helping students, particularly those from rural areas of the state, adjust to college life at UAF. Early this year, SOS recieved a $114,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to further its programming. SOS includes both academic as well as social services for students. Popular activities this year included the Coffeehouse, community dinners, picnics, and dances. SOS also assists students with ac- ademic problems by providing a free tutoring prog- ram. Anyone familiar with the folks up at SOS can testify that the help they provide is truly character- istic of Alaskan neighborliness. Dorm N I Bartlett Hall Lathrop Hall Mcintosh Hall Nerland Hall Skarland Hall Stevens Hall Moore Hall Wickersham Hall Dorm Life What is it like to live in a dormitory? The story can be told by quickly looking at some of the things said about the dorms or by residents. Lets take a walking tour starting with Mcintosh and the ' lower dorms ' . You may run across one of the ' Clan of Mac ' attired in a T — Shirt saying ' Poker in the Front — Liquor in the Rear ' , or hear one of them refer to the tremendous dorm spirit which is promoted by the ex- cellent ' keggers ' in the basement. They consider themselves to be athletically oriented and many of the ' Jocks ' on campus reside there. You may also hear an occasional complaint because there are no women in the dorm. And what dorm is situated just west of the Clan? What can only be termed as typical university planning is the location of the dorm quaintly referred to as the old folks home, Norland Hall, the graduate facility which boasts ' no one under 24 ' . Unlike its neighbor which would appear to be less interested in the academic aspects of college life, many Nerland residents are rumored to leave the library or their research offices only occasionally, and then only to check on possible damage to the research project growing in their dorm room as a result of high decible noise coming from the Clan ' s stereos. Needless to say, there is occasional animosity between this studious environment and the slightly more rambunctious lifestyle at Mac next door. Moving West of Nerland we come to the land of the ' Family ' or Steven ' s Hall. You must be 19 to be a member of this family, and if you attended any of their parties you would understand why. Actually, these students do enjoy the pleasure of college, but at the same time manage to keep the academics in per- spective. Their parties always seem to be the best catered on campus. Simone Tiffony Nolan 1 B ll b s 60 Activities 4th Floor Moore- The Zoo Margaret Nelson Activities 61 Moving further west is the home of ' Sex Drugs and Rock Roll ' . Lathrop Hall is famous for its theme parties, specifically its unparalleled ' Toga ' parties. Everyone on campus knows of the Lathrop Ghetto and the wild animals that have resided there, some of the engineers and philosophy majors who have lived there will not soon be forgotten. Returning east and a little north, in the proximity of Mac ' s north 40, can be found the all — female dormitory, Wickersham Hall. If Mac is the Men ' s Jock dorm on campus, Wick is the female equivalent. Referring to themselves as the ' Wick— ed Women ' , these residents are said to contribute to, or even cause the high level of activity abounding at Mac. Their Esprit De Corps is unmatched among women on campus. Moving northwest from Wick we reach the ' upper dorms ' , the first of the three facilities is Skarland, a quiet coed dorm with older residents.

No one will argue that Moore has more than its share of enthusiasm, as the ' A ' book pointed out, it has strong traditions, and has been the home of several (in)famous student groups, the latest being the fourth floor ' Zoo ' which will probably hold the record for longest parties and the lowest GPA per floor for some time. However, Moore is more than the floor at 4. The sixth floor women have gained the respect of the campus by putting on the only floor sponsored annual dance, The Affair, which is a formal dinner and dance, one of the elegant annual traditions on campus.

Bartlett has only recently gained an identity, and that is due to the fact that until last year it was not filled with students and functioned largely as Hotel Bartlett providing space for campus visitors. However, with the large increases in enrollment during the last few year the dorm has filled, as with the others, to overflowing with students. Because of such conditions this ye ar some students found themselves living in the dorm lounges during the early part of the semester. Married Student Housing is a large component of the homes on campus offering 158 units which vary from three bedroom units in the New Married Housing facility to the efficiency Modular Units, better recognized by students as the train wreck.

Though varsity sports out of necessity must limit the number of participants, the intramural program offers such a variety of sports that almost anyone can find a particular sport they are great in and can play in. The activities begin early in the fall and continue right up to finals in the spring. To promote the competitive spirit on campus, every dorm resident, and off — campus student is encouraged to play in team and individual sports. The teams compete for the highest total points over the entire school year. Points are accumulated by student par- ticipation in the various scheduled events in either in- dividual or team events. Points from individual in- volvement can by attributed to team scores. Single competition includes activities such as Tennis, Cross Country Runs, Bike Run, Table Tennis, Racquetball, Handball, Table Tennis, Wrestling, Pool, Frisbee and Football Throw, Arm Wrestling, and others. Team sports include basketball, hockey, cross country skiing, track meet, volleyball, soccer, water- basketball, swim meet, bowling, softball, and our favorites Battle of the Beef which Nerland won his year and Snoball which was won by Lathrop. The Chancellor ' s trophy is awarded to the champions each year in both the men ' s and women ' s catagories. The 1981 winners were respectively for the men ' s and women ' s catagories: first place, Mac and Wick; second, Bartlett and Bartlett; third, Lathrop and Moore; fourth, Moore and Lathrop. There were 16 mens teams and 9 women ' s teams.

Student Education Association MODEL UNITED NATIONS Model United Nations is one of the oldest organizations on campus, dating back to the 1950 ' s. MUN is run in conjuction with the Political Science department to provide stu- dents the opportunity to participate in a United Nations simulation. Under the dir- ection of Gerald McBeath, Poli Sci depart- ment head, several students were chosen to represent the United States at the West Coast conference, bestowing a great honor to the UAF community.

Students use the facility for television, film and audio production courses. Student crews do work on the production of local programing ranging from the operation of cameras and audio, to directing the production. The station provides public service TV and radio programs throughout the local community and other parts of Alaska via satellites and transmitters. These includes ACCESS, JMT in Conversation and Town Forum which provides the opportunity for various political and social forums. The TV-radio station also provided a teleconference link between Fairbanks and the legislature in Juneau during this year ' s session. KUAC was the innovator of an idea to aquaint Alaskans from rural communities with the activities of public TV and radio in Alaska. The RSVP program brings people from the villages into Fairbanks for a one to two-week intensive training program about broad- casting. Jay Harris sets up KUAC programming. Clubs and Organizations 95 Northern Sun Two newspapers on campus? Yes! The Northern Sun seemed like an intruder when it was established through donations by Alaskan media in the fall of 79. Continuing with the effective editorial staff of Jamie Bryson-fall ' 80 and Bruce Scandling-spring ' 81, the paper has established itself on campus. There was a futile attempt this semester ) however, to merge the two campus papers. Termed the " more con- servative " paper on campus, the Sun covered a variety of campus events. Best of uck to Todd Paris, Northern Sun editor this fall. Under the expert instruction of Dr. John Turner, the UAF Fencing Club continues to be a popular activity for many people on campus. Fencing, sometimes ap- pearing a mildly active sport, requiring little physical endurance is quite the opposite as any fencer can testify. Long periods of intense concentration, coupled with extreme skill and timing make fencing at UAF one of the more physical sports. To get out and try the sport is to know what it takes. Fencing Club Fencing instructor John Turner observes practice ROTC Army. Navy. Airforce. Marines. No, our military program on campus is ROTC. This program provided at college level is to attract, select and prepare motivated students with potential to serve at a commission level in the US Army Reserve, regular Army or National Guard after graduation. Eight students earned their commissions this year. The progam provides training in a variety of areas in addition to academic training. The Outdoor Skills class provides adventure training in areas such as rappelling and mountaineering at Black Rapids, Arctic first aid training, orienteering, glacier movement, Arctic survival skills, marksmanship and tactical exercises. The cadets this year participated in intramural sports, rifle and pistol competition with other ROTC teams, and provided a color guard which performed at home basketball games.

Clubs and Orgs 99 ASUA Jason Kuehn, ASUA President The executive branch of the Associated Students of the University of Alaska was headed by President Jason Kuehn and Vice President Debbie Benson. Much of the administration ' s efforts and activities revolved around the development of internal systems for ASUA so it could avoid problems faced earlier in the decade. The Legislative Branch was lead by Senate President Bill Zybach, until his resignation in January, where he was succeeded by Tom Tilson. The Senate worked with the administration on the development of new budget procedures and worked to implement the new constitution. The Legislative Council under Jo Kuchle was the most visible political force in the organization. The council lobbied the state legislature and the university ad- ministration in conjunction with the new Alaska Statewide Student Association to successfully get funding for longer library hours, Patty building renovations, student typewriters and student jobs. The Supreme Court had a much less active year than in the past because of the new constitution, but the court was aptly guided by Chief Justice Martin Garrigues. The students participated directly through the new referendum procedure. They voted to pay their activity fee on the basis of credit hours, and voted against ASUA spending approximately $8,000 to purchase a computer. Students witnessed the opening of new ASUA offices which the legislative council lobbied for the previous year. The offices were dedicated by Zybach to ' student leaders who serve their fellow students in action rather than in rhetoric ' .

Rachel Meinhardt tried to get the paper going strong in the spring but had to leave for a full-time job. Finally, Kenny Hughes took over as editor after mid- term and finished out the school year. Termed as the " less conservative " paper on campus, the quality of the Star was erratic. But, we ' ll all be looking forward to a fresh start in the fall.

We made it up to the podium to receive our degree without tripping, but they pronounced our name wrong.

The University has been without a yearbook recording its activities for ten years now. The small group of interested students who had the idea and dream of reestablishing the DENALI as a tradition on campus to cover the many sp- ecial activities that we have here, worked hard and had to go through many bureaucratic ch- annels to get the go ahead to do it. A committe consisting of Debbie Benson, Carmen Kocinski and Bill Zybach was formed to get the wheels rolling and to establish a staff. The first meeting saw many interested students. But, as the project continued, many had to drop out to concentrate on their stud- ies. A group of nine students worked contin- uously throughout the spring semester, giving up many of their weekends and off-study times to gather the information and photographs to fill the book. After the semester ended, every- one went off to work, but three of us Caroline Collings, Nick Messina and myself. Each evening, after work, promptly at 7 p.m. until 10 or 10:30 p.m., we worked on comple- ting la youts, pasting up and writing copy. My special appreciation goes out to these two extremely hard workers, who dedicated their lives to the yearbook this semester. For without their constant good humor and imagi- nation this DENALI would never have been conquered. ffrlu U)oJ Advertising 143 ' All that we have are these . . . photographs and memories.
