developing attitudes. Towards people.
Towards years. Towards a school.
Spending your mornings circling
Westark in hopes of finding an empty

Arkansas' fifth largest college, Westark Community College,
began the 1975-76 school year with two new trustees, Conaly
Bedell and Sam Sicard. Bedell and Sicard joined the seven other
Board of Trustees members to form a nucleus of policy making
which is ultimately responsible for the operation of the school.
One of the most important duties of the Board is to establish the
"philosophy" of Westark, Evidently, "growth" was included in
the trustees' 1975-76 philosophy as construction of a new fine
arts building and the remodeling of the existing structure were
begun this year as well as the addition of a hothouse to the
science building, a new technical wing and a hot food line in the
student union and the rebuilding ofa welding shop which was
destroyed by fire during the summer. Total cost of the projects
was 51.75 million. Each trustee was elected by the voters of
Sebastian County to serve a six-year term. All of the trustees were
natives of Ft. Smith with the exception of Woodson Holbrook
who lived in Mansfield.
During his visit to Westark's Vietnamese Education Project
at Fort Chaffee, trustee Conaly Bedell pauses to chat with a
young Vietnamese boy.

selected as w. c. c.'s
On May15, 1975 came the announcement that the intensive eight-month
long effort by the Westark Presidential Search Committee had ended with
the selection of a Minnesota man as Westarlds fourth president. Dr. William
Klusmeier, Board of Trustees President, ended speculation as to who would
occupy Westark's top administration position by stating that Dr. James M.
Kraby of Grand Rapid, Minnesota had accepted the Boards offer to come to
Ft. Smith. Dr. Kraby was chosen from among 175 applicants for the job. On
May 22, Dr. Kraby talked with the local news media and said that although
he has never been in Ft. Smith before, he was very impressed with what he
had seen and especially the college. His former college administrative
experience included being the Dean of Instruction at Grand Rapids' ltasca
Community College. According to the new President, he had no major
changes planned for Westark although he said that he would work for a
women's athletic program and a hot-food line in the student union. Dr.
Kraby's duties were primarily to serve as the liaison between the state
government and Westark and to see that the Board's directives were carried
out. Dr. Kraby assumed his position July 1. He believes that the community
college is the place to be education wise because in the future less
emphasis will be placed on bachelor degrees and more on vocational areas
The first major objective of Dr. Kraby's administration was to find a new
conditions on campus

After four weeks of research and interviews
conducted by a search committee, Dr. James A.
Shane was nominated to become Westark's new Dean
of Academics. The position has been vacant since
early July. Dr. Shane's nomination was consid-
ered and approved by the Board of Trustees in a
meeting on August 21. Dr. Shane arrived in Ft.
Smith on September 15 to assume his new duties.
ln 1973, Dr. Shane received his doctorate in
higher education from Ohio State University.
Before coming to Westark, he was the Dean of
Academic Services at Edison College, a two-
year institution located in Piqua, Ohio. Dr.
Shane had also served as Dean of Occupational
Services at Lamar College, Lamar, Colorado. He is
responsible for all of Westarks academic areas.

Many people think of summer as being a time for vacations
and relaxation, however, for Harold Cameron, it was the
beginning of what he would later label "the biggest thing that
has ever occurred in my life," Last lune, Cameron, Westark's
Dean of Students, traded his campus office for converted
army barracks and the title of Director of the Vietnamese
In accordance with the community college philosophy,
Westark responded to the education needs of the Vietnamese
located at the nearby Fort Chaffee Refugee Relocation Center.
Under conditions of a contract with the Department of Hous-
ing, Education and Welfare, Westark provided courses in sur-
vival English and American culture to Vietnamese who volun-
tarily enrolled in the program.
Cameron, who was the project's director until the program
closed December 22, began his first weeks as director forming
a staff of both professional and volunteer instructors,
developing a curriculum and securing the needed education
materials which included a closed-circuit television system.
The following weeks were used in implementing and super-
vising the program and visiting similar programs in California
and Pennsylvania. The last weeks were spent closing the
facility and deciding what to do with the tons of equipment.
Cameron reassumed the Dean ofStudents position in lanu-
ary in which he was responsible for all non-classroom in-
struction including guidance and counselling, health pro-
grams, the athletic program and student activities and

affirmative actian plan
Arkansas' Department of Education's ruling that
all state colleges and universities adopt
affirmative action plans added a new twist to
Chris Corbin's duties for the year. Dr. Kraby
appointed Corbin to serve as Westark's first
affirmative action officer. lt was Corbin's task to
formulate a plan that would insure equal rights in
employment and education for those minorities
and women on campus. Designing this plan,
however, did not occupy all of Corbin's time as
he simultaneously held two other positions in the
administration structure. ln his capacity as
Assistant to the President-Federal Programs,
Corbin helped Dean Harold Cameron negotiate
the second contract with the Department of
Housing, Education and Welfare for the second
phase ofWestark's involvement with the
Vietnamese Education Project. Corbin, also,
worked to obtain additional Federal grants for
Westark. As Athletic Director, Corbin supervised
Westark's interscholastic athletic program. Earlier
in the year, Corbin announced that he would
retire july 1. He had been with Westark since

Have you ever felt like you were juggling three
things at once? If so, you'd understand why
Sondra Waldrop, Westark's Director of Public
Information, is seldom idle. Mrs. Waldrop serves
as the official liaison between Westark and the
community. During1975-76 Waldron worked to
maintain good relations between Westark and the
area news media. This relationship allowed
Westark to publicize its events through fifty area
newspapers, radio and television stations.
Waldrop made several trips to KTCS-radio to tape
Westark's public information programs in
addition to appearing on local television talk
shows. Developing a large scale advertising
campaign also figured into Waldrop's work with
the media. Springtime brought work on the
1976-77 Westark catalogue and plans for a
brochure designed especially for graduating high
school seniors. Plans for a Westark basketball
brochure were also formulated. Waldrop's tasks
for 1975 also extended into the Vietnamese
Education Project. lt was her duty to prepare
reports on the project for the Governor's Office,
the Arkansas Department of Education and the
Community!Junior College Journal.
New Materials and
to Update LRC
If textbooks were the only study material available at Westark, students'
exposure to other viewpoints would be narrowed and instructors would
be handicapped in varying their presentations. However, through audio-
visual aids, books, recordings, magazines, pamphlets and papers,
Westark's Learning Resources Center added another dimension to the
academic process. "We're here to serve students and to correlate their
needs with material the faculty recommends," explained Max Burns,
Director of the Learning Resources Center.
To keep the LRC's material current, Burns had monthly meetings with
his staff, worked with the faculty to determine what materials were
needed and then supervised the purchasing of the materials.
Attempting to make the LRC's material more accessible to its users,
Burns and his staff worked on plans to completely catalog and classify all
of the audio-visual kits and cassette tapes which would allow them to be
integrated with the LRC's books.
In state-wide affairs, Burns served as the chairman of the Arkansas
Library Association Scholarship Committee and was the Community
College Representative to the Department of Higher Education Budget

Four years of research and writing about post-secondary
education culminated this summer for David Landsburg as he was
awarded a doctorate degree in higher education. Dr. Landsburg
received his degree from Michigan State University where he
earned his masters degree.
Returning to Ft. Smith, Landsburg began work on his third year as
Director of Community Services. Among priorities for the year was
the hiring of two assistants: Frank Prosser, Assistant Director of
Community Services and Iudy Cook, Assistant Director of
Community Services for the Sixty-Plus Program.
Landsburg's responsibilities as director included developing new
community service courses, maintaining previous ones, hiring
instructors and publicizing course offerings.
A responsibility out of the ordinary came during November as
Landsburg headed the 1975 Student Congress at Little Rock.

Westark opened the 1975-76 school year in
a unique situation: it had a new President and
Dean of Academics and an Acting Dean of Stu-
dents. The latter of the trio was Dr. Sue Kincan-
non, Director of Guidance and Counselling,
who was called upon to serve as Dean of Stu-
dents until Harold Cameron returned from the
Vietnamese Education Project. Reflecting on
her additional duties assumed August 18, Dr.
Kincannon stated "lt has been an exciting
semester which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I
think that the plans made for Westark will help
it become a more effective college within the
community." During the fall semester she
worked with a committee which made recom-
mendations concerning student personnel
needs to the State Appropriations Committee.
The registration procedure became more
streamlined due to the work of Dr. Kincannon
and the other counselors to give more struc-
ture to the process.
Counselors became active in instructing
career development courses designed for the
students' personal growth and development in
their career areas. Associated with this was the
formation of the Evaluation Center headed by
Gordon Watts. This center used evaluation and
career materials to help students learn about
their needs, goals and abilities.
Veterans received special counselling from
Cheryl Peters who became Westark's Veteran
Counselor during the fall semester. For the first
time, counselling services were available to
night students with Dr. Lee Mynatt as coun-

caslr: fall and
set new records
lf there is one person on campus who has
felt the results of Westark's growing
student body it is Dennis Cash. As Director
of Admissions and Records, Cash is
responsible for determining the number of
students enrolled at Westark. Last fall,
Cash announced that the fall enrollment of
3247 students established a new record for
Westark. The spring enrollment of 3000
plus also set a new record. When he wasn't
counting the students already on campus,
Cash was visiting every high school within
a fifty mile radius of Westark recruiting
students for the school. Once a student
enrolled at Westark, Cash was responsible
for maintaining that student's transcripts
and updating his academic records. When
a student decided to transfer to another
school, Cash supervised the transfer of his
transcripts and records to the new

How many times in a year does a person
sign his name? For Leo Olsen, it was at
least ten thousand times, that figure being
the number of purchase orders he
authorized. Olsen, Westark's Purchasing
Agent and Superintendent of Building and
Grounds, was one the few officials who
occupied dual roles in the administration
structure. As Purchasing Agent, Olsen's
duties included determining the validity of
requisitions, receiving bids, supervising
contracts and purchasing requested
materials. Once the ordered material
reached Westark, it came under Olsen's
jurisdiction as Superintendent of Buildings
and Grounds. ln this capacity, Olsen was
responsible for the replacing, maintenance
and inventory of Westark's supplies and
equipment. He was also responsible for
Westark's maintenance staff who, along
with routine upkeep of Westark's facilities,
converted two classrooms in the Business
Administration Building into needed office

Much of America's basic operations are
being done by machines: and, one machine
which Westark is increasingly relying on is
its computer. The computer which often ran
from seven in the morning to nine at night
was supervised by Ray Sparks, Director of
Data Processing. Spark's duties included
coordinating educational programming for
data processing students, overseeing day
to day production of reports and planning
new applications for the computer. Some of
the projects for administration purposes
included maintaining comprehensive
records for all Westark students, figuring
the college payroll, and helping with the
campus and book store inventories as well
as faculty evaluations and institutional
research. Sparks and the data processing
department used the year to formulate
plans which will ultimately result in a
planning and budgeting system. This
system will give Westark administrators
immediate information of students,
personnel, the physical plant and budget
records when the need arrives.

ever thought that
you'd get paid
while you learned?
Many students work their way through
college, and seldom receive anything from
their labors except a paycheck. However,
some Westark students discovered that a
paycheck and college credit could be earned
from the new Co-Operative Education
program initiated this year. "Co-Operative
Education is a way for students to get a
college education and job experience at the
same time," commented Allen Doss. the
program's director. ln essence, a student
participating in Co-Operative Education
went to college. worked at a job relating to
his major, received college credit and
obtained on-the-job experience.
Approximately 30 students participated in
the program each semester. The number of
students was purposely kept low so that
"bugs" could be worked out in order that the
program could be expanded next year. Most
of the jobs this year were in technical areas
such as electronics and automotive
mechanics. Doss worked during the spring
semester to develop a system where
students participating in the program could
leave their resumes permanently on file in
three new items to

Ann Graue, the job was more of a challenge.
With her new position, Ms. Craue became
sponsor of the cheerleaders and the Campus
Activities Council as well as directing
Westark's intramural program.
A typical day for Ms. Graue began around
seven in the morning with arrangements for
coffee and doughnuts for students in the

contracts with a rock group for a dance.
purchasing student tickets for the Broadway
Theater, publicizing upcoming activities

of financial aid
in westark history
As Americas economic situation tightened,
more college students found themselves
applying for financial aid than ever before.
Westark's students did not buck the trend
according to Zachary Hodges, Director of
Financial Aid and Placement.
Approximately one-third of Westark's
students received Veteran's benefits.
Another 30-40U70 received some other form
of financial aid. Forms of aid available were
the Basic Education Opportunity Grant,
various other grants and loans and the
worklstudy program as well as the new
State Scholarship program which offered
first-year students scholarships ranging
from S100-300. The total aid received by
students, excluding Veteran's benefits,
totaled nearly three-quarters million dollars
Hodges supervised the screening of
applicants and helped to determine the
amount of aid they needed. He was also
involved in the Co-Operative Education
program, Veterans Affairs and the Career
Development program. Counseling, serving
as the career development instructor and
planning long-range financial aid programs

Fine Arts Complex
Nineteen seventy-five was to be the year that
Westark's Humanities Division would operate from a new
fine arts complex. However due to the rise in building costs during I974
groundbreaking for the construction of the facility was delayed
until the summer ot' 1975. Work on the fine arts complex consist-
ed of two parts: the renovation of the existing structure and
the building of a 400-seat auditorium with additional
classroom and office space. The music department was
temporarily located in the Business Administration Building.
The remodeling ot' the old Fine Arts Building
was completed during the spring semester
with the completion of the auditorium expected by
the fall of 1976. During October 2-4 Westark's English department
hosted the Southwest Regional Conference
on English in Two-Year Schools.
Joy Lowe was the chairwoman of the event.
Kathleen Skeen served as co-chairwoman. Barbara
Bartlett was the Conferenceis Registrar: and,
Nancy Dover was responsible for the event's arrangements.
The topic of the Conference was "The Beast in the Jungle."
Westark and the Sheraton Inn served as "bases" for the group.

Preparations for box packing, and desk cleaning began during
the spring semester for the Social and Behavorial Sciences
Division due to a classroom utilization plan which called for
the Division's transfer from the Science Building to the
Technical Complex. One department which didn't have far to
travel was the Child Development Center, already located in
the Complex. The Center served a two-fold purpose: providing
day and night child care for Westark students and providing
practical leaming experiences for the Introduction to Education
Work on new facilities for the physical education
department was completed during the fall semester. The "L"
shaped addition to the gym included locker rooms for both gym
classes and athletes, a weight room, store rooms and offices.
Three new instructors joined the Division's staff this year.
They were Pat Porter, sociologyp Linda Gibbons, psychologyp
and, Dan Butler, history.

IT IS BECOMING A TRADITION that the Technology
Division's enrollment increase by one-third each year.
The Fall '75 enrollment totaled 743 students making it
the fourth consecutive year that enrollment increased
by approximately thirty-three percent. This continued
increase was partly responsible for the formation of
two new courses: General Industrial Maintenance and
General Electrical Maintenance. Both courses dealt
with training repairmen for highly specialized
industrial systems. Students completing these courses

received certificates. Certificates were, also, awarded
for auto mechanics, welding and drafting. Two-year
degrees were awarded to students who completed

enrollment, consideration was given towards offering
many of the night-time only classes during the day.

Recognized by Society
Westark's automotive technology department breathed a little easier
this year as the new automotive wing ofthe technical complex was
completed this fall. The new structure doubled the department's
class space and included three electronic auto lifts valued at S20,000.
The department added Dwight Mason as a full-time instructorp yet,
part-time instructors still outnumbered full-time instructors.
Close to the automotive buildings were the machine shops.
Westark's machine shop program was officially recognized this year
by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The SME sponsored a
scholarship competition awarding first, second and third place
prizes for projects submitted by first year students. jarvis Tipton of Ft.
Smith captured the first place prize of one semester's tuition. Cecil
johnson of Muldrow, Oklahoma and Robert Rogers of Alma placed
second and third respectively.

Conversational Spanish Class Takes
Field Trip-to Mexico City
The pyramids of Teotehuacan, Xochimilco Floating Gardens, the Shrine of
Guadalupe, bull fights and horse races of the world's fourth largest city,Mex-
ico City, awaited members of Weslarlds beginning conversational Spanish
class on their April 10 trip south of the border. The trip headed by Nancy
Zechiedrich, Westarlds Spanish instructor, was the first of its nature for the
Community Service program and Westark, and, hopefully, it gave the stu-
dents a chance to put their newly acquired language to use.
While some of its students went to Mexico City, the Community Service
program went to others. Community Service classes were established in the
area towns of Booneville, Greenwood and Alma. Extensions were also lo-
cated in local nursing homes for the Sixty-Plus program.
The Sixty-Plus program continued to grow this year with over 800 senior
citizens enrolled in the spring courses. The program offered classes to senior
citizens sixty years or older in health, physical fitness, arts and crafts and per-
sonal development. Westark offered these courses free of charge to the pro-

It was a cold, rainy day outside, but, inside,
Westark's gym was warmed by the vibrations of
twelve girls seeking to become one of the three
freshman cheerleaders. The competition, held Sep-
tember 12, resulted in Regina Christian, Debbie
Congour and Lane! Shoen being chosen as freshman
cheerleaders for 1975-76. The girls then joined the
groups five sophomore cheerleaders to make plans
for the upcoming basketball season.
During the summer, the sophomore cheerleaders
participated in the National Cheerleaders Associ-
ation sponsored clinic at Southern Methodist
University. Westark's representatives won three
superior and one outstanding awards for their work
at the seminar.
The girls shared what they had learned at S. M. U.
with their own clinic designed for area junior and

days during july and generated money to offset the
expenses of road trips for Westark's cheerleaders.

Pulling their feet out of tubas and sidestepping tympanies, the 1976 Collegian
staff organized to produce eleven campus newspapers during the year. The
staff room was a tight fit as Ft. Smith Symphony equipment was stored in the
publication's offices until the renovated Ballman-Speer Building was opened
during the Christmas break.
The newspaper staff, operating for the second year without a sponsor, began
work on the forty -eighth volume of the Collegian in September. Approximately
500 copies of each four-page issue were distributed free to students.
Most of the staff members viewed the Collegian as an opportunity to gain
practical experience towards their joumalism degrees. Emphasis was placed on
reporting news of the college in feature stories as well as in editorials.
Patricia Dickinson served as the Collegian's editor.

saleg carolling at Christmas: and, benefit concerts. One ofthe
biggest money raisers was a citrus fruit sale held over the winter
months. The mayors of Ft. Smith, Van Buren and Greenwood lent
additional emphasis to the drive by jointly proclaiming "Westark
Choir Week," November 16-22.
Singing appearances for the year included performing
'tRequiem" with the Ft. Smith Symphony, December8 and a tune-

w. c. c. delegation takes
awards at congressp
Westark's delegation to the Arkansas Congress of
Human Relations may have arrived in Little Rock un-
noticed, but after three days its mark was certainly left on
everyone involved with the event. The eight member
delegation accounted for seven awards. The Student Con-
gress, modeled after the U. S. Congress, was held Novem-
ber 16-18 at the State Capital building. Arkansas high
school students occupied the House of Representatives
while Arkansas college students served as Senators. The
affair was designed to give students first-hand experience
in a constitutional government.
Westark students collected four of the seven bill writing
awards and authored two of the four Senate bills which
passed both the Senate and House. Those winning bill
writing awards were Doug and Jo Carson, Suzanne Har-
mon and Gail Whitlock. Jo Carson and Guy Nelms were
responsible for the two successful Senate bills which
were later submitted to Governor David Pryor for con-
sideration by the Arkansas Legislature. Nelms missed
nomination by the Democrats tor President ot the Senate
by one vote. Doug Carson won additional awards for floor
speaking, committee and caucus work and parliamentary
Upon returning to Ft. Smith, the group organized a
speech society and entered various competitions during
the spring including the State Speech Festival, March 6,
held in Little Rock.

P. T. K. Members
One hundred and twenty-seven students, the largest
number in Westark history, received invitations to join the Phi
Theta Kappa honor society this year.
Phi Theta Kappa, an organization which yearly recognizes
students who demonstrated academic achievement, held its
initiation ceremonies March 9 in the Fullerton Union. The
initiation was a candlelight ceremony in which inductees
recited the organizations pledge and signed the official
register. Membership requirements were a 3.5 grade point
average and full-time student status.
Westarkis Zeta Epsilon chapter was organized in 1948
making it the second oldest Phi Theta Kappa chapter in the
state. Students cited for the honor were accorded the three
Greek words of phronimon, thuemos and katharotes which
are interpreted as wisdom, aspiration and purity.
Phi Theta Kappa served exclusively as an honor society
having no activities otherthan the initiationg however,
members were recognized at the annual Awards Day
ceremony. Faye Jones was the group's president. Patricia
Dickinson and Deborah Boone were the vice president and

Back to the parkinn situation. . . Any ideas
as to what brought all of the cars to Westark? The
lure of free oarkino? Possibly. But more likely
they came with the students. For the first time
in w.C.C.'s history. enrollment topped the 3000
mark- for both semesters. These fiqures made west-
ark the fifth largest college in Arkansas. Howeven
there was a hitch--nearly one-third of the campus'
nonulation was receivino Veteran's benefits: and
durino the year Uncle Sam decided to curtail many
Veteran education nroorams. Understandably, the
news concerned westark administrators as they face
ed the oossibility of smaller revenue for the com-
ino year just as many camous construction projects
were beqinnino. There were no solutions to the
nroblem, just time to wait and see how many Veteran
made it hack for '76-'77, Among the major projects
was the new wino for the technical Complex, a cafe-
teria in the Student Union and the new fine arts
comnlex. The fine arts complex posed a oroblem
of it's own: with the building came a construction
crew. Construct:'n crews are noted for their obse-
ssion with wnistlino and calling to members of the onoosite sex who hannen ss by
the ouildino site. This narticular crew oossessed some particularly
excellent whistlers leavinn many Westark females crimson with
embarrassment as they walked by the buildinn- but theied,f
were some females equally crimson because they fail-
ed to attract a whistle.
Of course you need ontimal conditions to
whistle your best. The construction crew, westark and
Ft. Smith were the beneficiaries of an Indian Summer which

were you aware that the Supplieg of the watermelon, or the Cipagog
Activities Council, was in the midst of yet another representation change during the
year? In accordance with the near tradition that the structure of the organization
be changed each year, the Council adopted the third form of representation in as many
years. In 1973-74 it was decreed that the Council would be a duly elected body. How-
ever, this plan was scrapped when only SZ of the students participated in the election
Last year and continuing into the first part of this year, it was a Ucome, if you pleae
aseu organization with anybody who was anybody deciding how the Council's money was
to be spent. This structure brought people into the organization, but it hit a snag
last October. The Speech Society, then a newly organized club, was in need of funds
to attend the Student Congress in Little Rock. The society went before the Council
to ask for a loan. The Council turned down the request reasoning if the society re-
ceived money from the Council then every other organization on campus would be entitlm
to Council funds. Fair enough. But, later at the same meeting, the Council consid-
ered spending several hundred dollars purchasing flags to decorate the circle drivei
on special occasionsfthe flags used on Patriotic Day were borrowedl. This struck a
sour note with Speech Society members who thought this to be a gross perversion of
priorities and they pressed the matter with high officials. The situation was
investigated and it was found that the Council was operating without even a constitu-
tion. After several meetings and discussions, it was decided that Council members
should be responsible to someone other than themselves. The
new structure called for one representative from each campus
Mpitifil organization with a president and a secretary to be elected
tgggffil from within the group every three months. work was begun on
jjggggi' a constitution. The Speech Society got its money and went
to Little Rock. The flags were furled for a mom-
ent and most people seemed to the satisfied-- at
least until next year. But credit where credit is

fmministrators saw the changes as benefiting the

hours to fifty minutes. Also, the students would

Students objected to the change believing that
since the time for exams would be shorter it would be
possible to have as many as three final exams C3 hours
of testingl in one day. what many students failed to ilil
realize was that under the old system many students had
three exams C6 hours of testingl anyway. Perhaps, what
students feared the most was that they would be respon-
sible for regularly assigned material up to the last

Friday giving them only one day to study. Whether
these reasons were the basis for students hard feelings

MORE ON THE JOY OF SIMPLE THWGS. ..
Do you remember once
reading that it's the
usimple thingsn which
make life enjoyable?

we'd like to enlarge
on that hypothesis.
what could have
been more pleasing
to the simple senses
than a working clock
in the Union? After
an entire year of
ing two minutes and
nineteen seconds be-
fore one o'clock, the
clocks in the Union
were fixed. Of cou-
rse, it was two weeks
before anyone noticed
the change, but for

And what about the holidays?! A white Thanksgiving and a white Christmas in
the same year! In Ft. Smith, Arkansas, no less! where it had never snowed on Christ'

white stuff fell on Christmas Day. The good wet kind that makes soc? eicellent snow-

Sadly, many people evaluate an institution solely
on its athletic department's success. Happily,
Westark has a successful program. Baseball.
Basketball. Golf. Intramurals. " It's not whether
you win or lose, it's how you play the game."
Sounds good if you aren't participating. But when
it's 65-64 with 30 seconds left in the game-
winning seems to become everything. Westark
fields more than five or nine players in a game-it
fields the whole school. Students. Faculty.
Administrators. They all want the Lions to win. For
themselves. For the players. For the coaches. For

Crowder Seeks 350th Vic-
tory With 19 6 Lion Team
lf collegiate baseball has an advantage over basketball it's that the
baseball team has seven months to prepare for the season opener.
With this in mind, Lion baseball coach Bill Crowder planned an off-
season program to prepare his team for the March 8 opener against
Arkansas Tech at Russellville.
The team, composed of 20 freshmen and nine sophomores, began
practice with a series of September scrimmages against area college
teams which included John Brown University, Carl Albert Community
College and Bacone College. These practice games gave the players
a chance to work with each other and Crowder an opportunity to see
in which areas the Lions needed improvement. Between the practice
games and the season opener, the Lions worked out in the weight
room and on the practice field.
When the season began, Crowder hoped to improve on his ten year
record of 325 wins and 112 losses, seven All-Americans and eighty
scholarships from four year colleges to Westark players. Competition
for the year included three four year colleges: the University of Arkan-
sas at Little Flock, Arkansas Tech and the College of the Ozarks. New
additions to the schedule included Northark Community College of
Harrison and Paris Junior College of Paris, Texas. The Lions com-
peted in the Bi-State Conference and worked towards a berth in the
Region Il National Junior College Athletic Association baseball tour-
nament held April 28-3O and May 1-2 at the University of Arkansas at

Questions. Speculations. Comparisons. lf there's
anything negative about a 32-4 record, it's knowing that
a year must pass before you can prove it wasn't a fluke.
That's the situation Lion head basketball coach Gayle
Kaundart and company found themselves in. Would the
1976 Lions matchup with the 1975 version? The answer
was a quick and decisive "yes." The Lions reeled off
eight straight victories at the season's beginning and
registered a 12-2 mark before the Christmas break. The
Lions began the season with the First Annual Westark
Classic and impressive victories over Kansas powers
Cowley College Q70-671 and independence Community
College tranked fourth in the nationl 83-67. Despite
lndependence's obvious height advantage, the Lions
controlled the backboards tallying 24 more rebounds
than the Pirates. The Lions chalked up another home
victory over non-conference foe Eastern A8tM before
travelling to Southern Baptist to whip their opponent
86-68 with Mickey Meimerstorf's 19 points leading the
way. Westark earned its second Ozark

Bebee 82-81 at Bebee. Six foot-seven
freshman Art Cook led the attack with 28
points. In a return match at Wilburton, the
Lions defeated Eastern AGM 63-58.
Returning home, Westark met Eastark and
dominated 86-61 hitting 55 percent from
the field. John Raybon tallied 24 points
while Cook and Randy Curl each had
eleven rebounds. Westark's bid to repeat
as Bi-State Conference Champions began
on a winning note as me Lions defeated
the St. Gregory Cavaliers 72-63. The Lions
came from an eight point deficit to capiu re
their eighth straight win of the season.
Cook connected for 19 points and Curl
grabbed 14 rebounds in the contest.

for their only loss of the season and suweeded by downing the Lions
76-62 in a hotly contested game in which the Pirates were assessed
seven technical fouls, Two days later, the Lions lost their second
game of the season to a rejuvenated Carl Albert Community College
team 67-63. The Lions led their Bi-State foes by three at halftime but
fell behind as all of the Trojans starters hit for double figures. Cook
again led the Lions with 16 points. Hoping to salvage something from
their three game road trip and, perhaps, regain some confidence, the
Lions traveled to the Muskogee Civic Center to play Bacone College.
The Lions held a one point lead at the half, and scored eight
unanswered points at the beginning of the second half to coast to a
70-53 victory. John Raybon and Cook combined for 40 points. Before
the contest it was announced that Westark was ranked 17th in the
National Junior College Athletic Association basketball poll.
December 15 brought the Seminole Trojans, the 1975 Region ll
basketball oharrpions, to town. Seminole eamed a berth in the 1975
national finals by defeating the Lions in overtime. A capacity crowd
watched the Lions explode from a six point deficit deep into the
game's final stages to a 72-76 win. Freshman Craig Harrington,
making his first start, led all scorers with 24 points.
The Lions celebrated the near-end of finals week and defeated their
third straight Bi -State foe by downing Oklahoma City Southwestern
66-55. The score was knotted at halftime, but characteristic of many
Lion victories, the Lions blew the game wide open with their return
to the court. This time they were aided by Raybon's 24 points and a
successful night at the free-throw line. Before disbanding for the
Christmas break, Westark traveled to North Little Rock and downed
Shorter College 79-70. Five Lions, Cook, Raybon, Harrington,
Meimerstorf and Wallace Gamer hit for double figures Cook led all
scorers with 24 points.

There's More to
a Book Than
Twice a week for four months a year, the Westark
Lion basketball team takes to the court to entertain
the people of the Ft. Smith area. For the past two
years, Gayle Kaundart and Jim Wyatt's teams have
succeeded in giving their fans their rnoney's worth.
But, undemeath the exterior of any successful team
lies an abundance of hard work-both on and off the
court. At the conclusion of last year's 32-4
campaign, the coaches concentrated on recruiting
players for the 1976 team The Lion program was
strong enougw to attract topnotch players from
states like Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio as well as
Arkansas. During the fall semester when the players
are together practice begins. Mudw time is spent on
conditioning and fundamentals before "polishing"
begins. About a week before the season starts, the
news media is introduced to the team and on the
day of the first game the team is introduced to the
student body at a pep rally. From then until the final
game of the year it's road trips, anxiety, butterflies
and hopes that hard work will result in a winning

Left-Off in '75
Returning from the Christmas break a week before classes
resumed, the Lions got the new year off on the right foot-but
not without some difficulty. The effects of the two-week lay-off
were evident as the Lions trailed Ozark Conference rival
Garland County 11-4 with eleven minutes left in the first half of
the January 5 tilt. However, within two minutes Cook,
Harrington and lvleimerstorf brought the Lions within one point
of the Lakers and at half-time the Lions led by a 36-29 score. Six-
foot sophomore Raybon continued the Westark blitz inthe
second half as the Lions broke the game open with five minutes
remaining and coasted to a64-50 victory. Raybon led the .Lions
with 17 points while Garner collected 11 rebounds.
The Lions continued their three game homestand with a 71-68
win over surprisingly tough Central Baptist. The win kept the
Lion's Ozark Conference record in tact at a 6-O mark.
Returning to Bi-State action, the Lions hosted the
Northeastern Norsernen. January 12. The game was filled with
suspense for both the crowd and the teams as the Lions came
back from a ten point deficit late in the game to take a 56-48
verdict. The game was decided at the free-throw line as the
Lions scored 20 points in 28 trys in foul situations. Cook led the
Lions with 12 points, but close behind were lvleimerstorf and
Harrington with 11 and 10 points respectively.

Crimps Lions' Hopes
for Bi-State Title
Cold shooting continued to plague the Lions as they began their
second Oklahoma roadtrip-only this time they couldnlt count on clutch
performances. The roadtrip was a pair of games with potent Bi-State
contenders Seminole and Oklahoma City Southwest. The Lions entered
Seminole with a 5-1 Bi-State mark and left with theirworst defeat of the
season. Midway into the second half, the Lions held a 42-41 edge over the
Trojans but were victimized by a punchless offense for the next six
minutes while Seminole scored 15 points, By the time Westark again
found the basket Seminole's lead was too much to overcome and the
Lions fell 75-58. Wallace Garner led the Lions with 18 points.
Four days later, the Lions traveled to Oklahoma City Southwestern to
face the sixth best junior college team in the nation. The Eagles floor play
and the Lions' cold shooting combined to send the Lions to their
lockerroom16 points down at halftime. The Eagles returned to quickly
enlarge their lead to 20 in the early stages of the second half. Mickey
Meimerstorfand lohn Raybon then found the basket and between them
cut the Eagles' lead to seven with eight minutes remaining. However, the
Lions again went cold and found themselves behind 72-49 with two
minutes remaining. The final score was 75-53. Raybon and Meimerstorf
led the Lions with 15 and 12 points respectively, in a game which saw
Westark commit 19 turnovers.
Rebounding from the two conference losses, the Lions regrouped to
smash St. Gregory, january 24. The three game road trip ended on a bright
note as the Lions held a12 point lead three minutes into the second half.
Good defense and a prudent offense kept the Lions ahead till the buzzer
when Westark collected the 58-43 victory. Art Cook led the Lions with 20
points in a game which set the stage for january 26's match with league-
leading Carl Albert Community College.

One year ago, Westark was the Cinderella team
in the Arkansas-Oklahoma basketball world as it
climbed from near obscurity to national promi-
nence. l-lowever, in nearby Poteau things were
starting to bubble. January 26 saw the perennial
Bi-State doormats. the Carl Albert Community
College Trojans. come to Ft. Smith with a 7-O Bi-
State record. The Westark gym was packed with
Lion and Carl Albert supporters, as well, making
this the first intense rivalry for W.C.C. in a long
time. The contest proved to be the evenly fought
contest which most people had expected. The
lead changed 16 times during the gameg but,
there was one big difference-while Westark
shot 47.2 percent from the field, the Trojans hit on
70 percent of their attempts. This discrepancy
was negligible until the final ten minutes of the
game when Carl Albert pulled out to a 56-49 lead.
From then until the buzzer, the Trojans went into
a stall game which proved fatal to the Lions. John
Ftaybon led the Lions with 19 points in the 75-65
loss. Mickey Meimerstorf followed with 16 points.
The game was the Lions' first home court loss in

but it went for naught as NEO scored a basket
with five seconds remaining in the second over-
time to take a 75-73 victory.
Down but not out, the Lions returned to Ft.
Smith to play the Bacone Warriors. Westark
finished Bi-State play on awinning note as all five
starters scored for double figures in the 72-52 vic-
tory over Bacone. The win put Westark in third
place of the Bi-State Conference with a 7-5 re-
Finished with the Bi-State, Westark turned its
attention to the Ozark Conference in which the
Lions possessed a perfect 6-O record. Westark
began the defense of its title against powerhouse
Phillips County Community College. However,
the Lions number one Ozark Conference
challenger fell 24 points short of upsetting the
Lions. Mickey Meimerstorf led the Lions with 19
points in the 71-47 victory over the Ftidgerunners.

Lions Continue Nlarch
After disposing of Phillips, the Lions continued on the eastern
Arkansas roadtrip meeting Eastark at Forrest City. February 7. In con-
trast to their first meeting, the Jaguars kept the games outcome in
doubt until the final rninutes. Wallace Garner's 14 points in the first
half kept the Lions in the game, but they went to the locker room at
half down by three points. Eastark returned and stretched their lead to
five points, however, behind Garner and John Raybon the Lions took
a seven point lead with fourteen minutes left. Westark never relin-
quished the lead and won 71-63. Garner led all scorers with 26 points.
Six days later, Westark maintained its perfect Ozark Conference re-
cord despite hitting only 4O percent from the field against Southern
Baptist. The Eagles scored the first two points of the game, but found
themselves down 22-4 after eight

The season was fall. Most thoughts about
sports were directed towards football. With
this in mind, what better way was there for
Westark's 1975-76 intramural program to be-
gin than with events revolving around the
pigskin? Competition in this area included
individual sports skills and flag football
for men and women teams. ln action at Kimm
field, Jerry Glidewell won the punting cham-
pionship: Eddie Blythe captured the extra
point kick championshipg and, Joey Holden
claimed title to the longest pass and long-
est field goal. Men's flag football play end-
ed November 7 with DaIly's Whackers named
winners. Women got into the football fever
3 with several powder-puff games played at
l-lunt's Park. In non-football activities, Ed-
mond White won the archery title and Jerry
Glidewell and Johnny Faires captured the
horseshoe doubles tournament.
Coming down to earth, Eddie Blythe watches the

serves dual purpose
"A sport for everyone and everyone in a sport" has
become the trademark of Westark's intramural program.
This year, more than twenty-five individual and group
competitions brought hundreds of students into the
intramural program. The expressed purpose of the
program was to provide recreational activity for
students which would enable the student to participate
in athletics as well as facilitating his social

certain winter days, nevertheless, tee shirts designating members of a
championship intramural team were wom throughout the year. The
shirts, awarded by the lntramural Program, which bore the name ofthe
particular competition were given to each member of a championship
team. In some events, members had a choice between a trophy or a shirt.
Photos of each competition winner were posted on the intramural score
board in the gymnasium. At the end ofthe year, an lntramural Athlete of
the Year was announced during Awards Day ceremonies.
ln later winter action, Masons captured the three-on-three basketball
title in round-robin play. A double elimination toumament featuring all
three-on-three teams began March 8. A free throw competition for both
boys and girls was held in conjunction with the three-on-three finals. A

It wasn't the Miss America Contest, or the
Boardwalk of Atlantic City, New Jersey, but
on November 8, Westark's Student Union
became the campus' center of interest as the
Miss Westark Contest began. Prior to the
contest, Westark's organizations nominated
fourteen girls to vie for the title. As the girls
arrived that morning, they posed for portraits,
filled out forms and got to know each other.
At lunch they met the judges Polly Crews,
Phoebe Wilcox, Bill Hayes and George Glover
and encountered their first problem: whether
or not to eat the chicken with their fingers.
After lunch each of the girls was interviewed
by the judges. Judging was based on poise,
appearance, scholarship, leadership and
community service. The names of the winner
and finalists were announced at the Christmas

A lot of things can happen in a few months, and since the 1975
NUMA's final deadline fell in February of last year, we weren't
able to tell you about anything that happened after then. And
what with W. C. C. getting a new president, the arrival of the
Vietnamese refugees, a visit by President Ford and all, it was an
eventful spring and summer for Westark and the Ft. Smith area
You might remember quite clearly now a lot of things that

The month of May usually brings one
thought to the minds of college students-
VACATIONS! Providing they don't flunk
their finals and have to remain for summer
school. Keeping this in mind, most students
bear down for serious study during the week
preceding finals. Officially kicking-off the
'fstudy week" and simultaneously ending
the Hfun and gamesi' part of the semester
was the Spring Dance sponsored by the
Activities Council. The dance was held May
2 in the Student Union. The turnout for the
dance was one of the best attendances for a
dance that year. Timberline, a band from
Lincoln., Nebraska, furnished the music and
their mixture of rock and roll and bluegrass
was well received by the students. As usual,
the students' dress was a hodgepodge of
formal, semi-formal, casual and less than
casual wear. For the time thoughts about
semester finals seemed to take a backseat to
having a good time. However, when the
clock struck twelve, the dance was over but
the finals week hadn't even begun.

Oscar Rose Junior College scored six runs in
the first two innings of a NJCAA Fiegion ll
Baseball Tournament semi-final game with
Westark and went on to defeat the Lions 8-4.
This May 6 loss coupled with a loss the
previous day to Connors College eliminated
the Lions from the tournament held at
lVlcAlister, OK. The twin losses capped a year
in which the Lions were ranked as high as
ninth inthe U. S. and gave Westark a 35-8 final
record. The second-seeded Lions began the
double-elimination tournament by defeating
Northeastern behind the pitching of Barry
Cann. Westark then dealt Oscar Rose its first
loss of the season, a 1-0 defeat, which
combined the pitching of David Rhodes and
Brad Cauthron. Connors beat the Lions 3-1
and Oscar Rose gained revenge in the semi-
finals by capitalizing on four Lion errors.

A Visit to Chaffee . . .
raeviisii ii eo
fEd. Note-During the spring of'l975, North Vietnamls Communist forces staged a
massive military offensive against South Vietnam. As South Vietnam's provinces fell
to the enemy one-by-one, the U, S. managed to evaculate i 30,000 Vietnamese.
Most of the refugees were destined for America, ln late April, it was announced that
nearby Ft, Chaffee would serve as a refugee relocation center. The following story is
an account of a visit to Chaffeei
Every sign in sight was printed in two languages. The spoken language resembled
something heard occasionally in a World War Il movie. Incense could be faintly
detected emanating from a Buddist Temple. From my position, I could see
hundreds of white barracks in neat rows and thousands of brown-skinned
people milling about them. Some of the people wore the latest Western fashions,
others wore the traditional dress of their Far Eastern homeland. The stares of the
people about me made me feel like a tourist in a forei n land.This was strange
considering that I was standing in my home state of Arkansas at the time.
The people were 25,000 South Vietnamese refugees. The place was Fort
Chaffee, a military installation near Ft. Smith, which was serving as a refugee
relocation center. The time was mid-May only a few weeks after the first plane-
Ioad of refugees landed at the Ft. Smith airport. I thought that such a significant
event in Ft. Smith's history should be recorded' in Westark's yearbook. So,one
Thursday afternoon Harold Cameron, Westark's Dean of Students, and I plodded
around the base seeking information and pictures. Icarried the camera and Mr.
Cameron carried the case containing its equipment. My first two picture subjects
were uncooperative. One turned his back to me and the other put his hands to his
face screaming that "they" would kill him if his picture were published. I
supposed that the refugees were beginning to resent the news media's
exploitation of their faces and situation. The camera was relinquished to Mr.
Cameron, who knows no inhibitions when it comes to taking pictures, and the
results came immediately. We met Mr. Pham Van Lien who noticed our camera
and asked if we would take a picture of his family. We gladly complied and
promised to forward a copy to his new home in Los Angeles where he would
serve as a B'hai priest. Our next subjects gave us a surprize. Mr. Cameron had
been talking with a young Vietnamese woman named Nancy Grace when Miss
Grace introduced us to her sister Karen. Karen, about ten years old, had features
so distinctly Caucasian that she could have walked down Garrision without
causing a stir. Obviously, empty Coca-Cola bottles weren't the only things
Americans were responsible for leavingin Vietnam. The more we took pictures,
the more apparent it became that adults who spoke English were less reluctant to
pose for us. Of course, we had no trouble etting children into pictures. Our stay
at Chaffee was cut short by rain. As we wasted to our car, the Vietnamese ran
with great haste for shelter. Our military escort explained that the Vietnamese
were unaccustomed to our cold rains and sought to avoid them as much as
We felt that an afternoon's visit to Chaffee wasn't sufficient to survey the
situationp so bright and early Friday morning, we were roaming the installation
again. This time Mr. Cameron brought several old NUMA's to distribute among
the Vietnamese. The books were accepted with polite nods and smiles that
reflected their confusion. Yearbooks must be too American for most Vietnamese
to understand. As far as general observations went: There were more oranges
than people at Chaffee. Everyone was carrying oranges. The children seemed to
adapt to the situation well, finding a strange land adventurous and exciting.
However, adults, for the most part, seemed bored. There was very little for them
to do. There were lines everywhere-at the P. X., at pay telephones, the Salvation
Army stand. At ten o'clock Friday morning, lines were forming at the mess halls
for the noon meal. As we were leaving Chaffee, Mr. Cameron said that there
should be something that Westark could do for the refugees. Neither of us had
any idea of the role Westark would assume at Chaffee within a few weeks.

"While the refugees are located at Ft. Chaffee, they are a part of
Westark's community," stated Harold Cameron, Westark's Dean of
Students. "Westark wants to be able to help each refugee as much as
possible. This is why we have the English classes and other activities.
These people cannot survive without our help. We have got to provide
as many positive experiences as we can," he added.
Westark's newest role in providing positive experiences began on
june 20,1975 when the college signed a contract with the Department
of Health, Education and Welfare to provide "surival" English language
instruction and American cultural orientation for the Vietnamese
refugees located at Chaffee. This initial contract ran from June 23 to
September 15, 1975. A second contract was negotiated in September
allowing the education program to run through December 21,1975
The cost of the program, which was headed by Harold Cameron,
totaled nearly one and a-half million dollars.
Bottom: Refugee Education Project Director Harold Cameron explains
the techniques used at Ft. Chaffee to Dr. C. B. Garrison, Superintendent
of Ft. Smith Public Schools. Right: A young prospective student goes
through the procedures of applying for admission to Westark.
On luly1 classes began with eighty-two teachers, thirty classrooms
and three hundred head sets and tape recorders awaiting the 7000 to
12,000 refugees who would attend classes daily. Classes were divided
into three groups: beginners tlittle or no knowledge of Englishl, inter-
mediate tsome knowledgel and advanced ta good working
knowledgej. Children attended the morning classes which began at
8:00 am and adults attended the afternoon and evening classes which
ended at 8:30 pm. Each student attended classes for two hours per day
during the weekdays. lf a student encountered problems with his
lessons or wanted additional study, he could enlist the aid of a volun-
teer worker or read in one of the eleven Y. M. C. A. libraries at Chaffee
which were supervised by Westark. The volunteer effort was coordi-
nated by Phyllis Tyler and lean Dana and was composed of people
who gave their time to help the Vietnamese learn the English language.
The Refugee Education Project gave Westark something more than
newspaper headlines and national attention because it allowed
Westark to pointedly demonstrate the community colleges' purpose:
to provide for the educational needs of the members of the com-
munity-for the needs of all members.
