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. fi? .gg . .? F..

Board of Trurteu CQ CQJ Q S 21-J K.: Q dr. james m. kraby selected as w. c. c.'s fourth president 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 Academic Dean. 22 KRABY conditions on campus Left: With his wife, Pat, athis side, Dr. Kraby answers the media's questions during an interview held in the upper level of the student union.

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 Education Project. 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 publications.

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 1972. IMUIL Right: SONDRA WALDROP, Director of Public Information.

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. BURNS New Materials and Procedures Used 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 Committee.

Returns as "Dr." 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. Landsburg coordinated the three day event which included overseeing all activities of the Senate and the House of Representatives assemblies. Above: DR.

A 'ali z V ,.,, hx X' I s t K W iliihl as ls 'L t J iili EIIEBBEMJIRE 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- selor. Counselors Develop Evaluation Center ,441 ll" ' itil 30 GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING ii..

GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING 31 caslr: fall and spring enrollments 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 institution.

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 space.

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.

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 his office.

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 Union progressing towards signing contracts with a rock group for a dance. purchasing student tickets for the Broadway Theater, publicizing upcoming activities and culmination at midnight chaperoning the Homecoming dance.

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 were also included in Hodge's work for the year.

At the end of the fiscal year, the L. R. C. had in excess of 32.000 books making it the largest community college library in the state. A first for the L. R. C. was the allocation ofa part of its budget to each Division for study materials. This allocation was based on the number of students and credit hours carried by a Division.

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.

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.

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.

COLLEGIAN 67 Packing up a few clothes, some leftover oranges and their voices, the Westark choir left April 30 for a week of sightseeing and work in Washington, D. C.-provided that 311,000 had been raised to meet expenses. The trip was in conjunction with the Bicentennial celebration and Arkansas Day, lVlay 3, when the choir performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Their selections for the performance featured songs written by Arkansas composers. The road to the Kennedy Center was not an easy one, though, since the choir had only a few months to raise the needed money. Money was raised through donations and fund raising activities. Projects included cleaning up a barn and the Fullerton Union after Westark dancesg two smorgasboardsg a chili supper: a candy 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- up for Kennedy Center at the State Bicentennial festivities, April 3.

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 procedure. 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.

Prior to October. any student could participate in Council decisionsg after November Council decisions were made by representatives of each Westark student organization and seven representatives at large. A president and secretary were elected every three months from within the group and work was begun on a constitu- tion. ln addition to working on internal matters, the Council sponsored a variety of activities for the students throughout the year. The opening week of the tall semester was marked with a watermelon feast and a stu- dent mixer. October included a Patriotic Day celebration and a Halloween costume dance. The search for Miss Westark was begun November 8. The advent of the holi- day season was observed with a Christmas dance. Decem- ber 12, which featured revealing the identity of lVliss Westark. The Council sponsored a special week of ac- tivities including a waterballoon throw and a tug-ot-war precluding Homecoming. February 21.

CAMPUS ACTIVITIES COUNCIL 71 P. T. K. Members S mbolized Phronimon, Thucmos and Katharotes 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 secretary, respectively.

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 it l lasted into November. WESTLIFE Ms. ll WATER MELON F EAST s Y L 1 In contrast with iast vear. the weather co-operated with Nestark's nlans for outside activities deiayinq a rainstorm on Patriotic Day and providing a baimv day for the Activi Counci1's watermelon feast. The water- meion feast featured soft, green drass to sit on, a two-piece blue qrass band to lis- ten to, sticky fingers, hundreds of flies and soiled shirts. The interesting thine about a watermeion feast, thouoh, is that it tends to be remembered for some time. Not because it's that spectacular but because it's hard to pick un all the seeds. and if the birds don't get them, there's a good chance that westark miqht have a watermelon market when the SUmm9Y' COHWES . oo get 5 .v ,ggi 850 . J Q., .u P WESTLIFE 79 I JY Lo op T etoU U ll' f ffff dl Hes ivvalienh--Q 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.

Wes tark's.Faculty, admin istration and student body have for the mon part learned to live in peaceful coexistan ce. However, for a few days last fall, R appeared that the abd ve mentioned parties seemed destined to re kindle the flaming ton ches of the mid-60's and rally around the R.0.T.C. building. Many experts believed that the only reason why this didn't happ- en was that westark y didn't have an R.0.TL l building. The culprh resoonsihle for the commotion was the administration's decision to abolish exam week. Q Many students and faculty than one day there was an exam week two things were evident: CID there stration and other parties.

Amid all the confjsiom,, was a communications breakdown between the admini- one had bothered to consult students on such an important curriculum change. The change in question was that the traditional special what for final exams would be replaced with final exams occuring during the regularly from two last scheduled class meeting. fmministrators saw the changes as benefiting the studenttNEfAshortening the time allowed for semester exams hours to fifty minutes. Also, the students would Qynot have tc wake special arrangements at work, with baby- sitters, etc. since they would be taking the tests during '-.the regular class periods. 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 - wednesday of the Semester and then have the final on tm Friday giving them only one day to study. Whether these reasons were the basis for students hard feelings - or not, students were quite bitter because no one had g consulted them about the matter and that the adm nista- 'iii tion had announced the policy just a few weeks be ore final exams..................

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 the school. 88 SPORTS SPORT SPORT SPO RT SPORT SPORT V 'QEVEA-"EH"X:Q .V H' ,. VTYQ: 'Sf' L5?:"".

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 Fayetteville.

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.

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 progress of his punt during intramural competition. F55 QQ. 151224--.g i gm' ry ,sg fr sf if fi- 5 . ff ss. ., ff- rs. sst W Us .t.s.. ..

INTRAMURALS 1 15 intramural program 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 development. Before classes dismissed for the semester break, the Gutter Busters tied Spanky's Gang for the first-half bowling title. Returning from the break, Geren's Gorillas ran and shot their way to the five-man basketball title.

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.

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 Dance. 122 MISS WESTARK Debra Reatlrer Dana Aydelatt Chair Music Guild Betsy Nigh Terry Daugan Vicki Price Cheerleader, Publications B.

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.

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. Outfielder Bobby Hartoon ended his Lion career by stealing 39 bases during his sophomore year. The Lions surprized many four-year colleges in '75 by taking seven of eight contests waged against the senior teams. ti s.

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 possible. 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. -Stephen Wood 166 SPRINGISUMMER '75 A contrast in the Vietnamese welcome.

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.

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. 35? 3-.
