Major events both on campus and around the world changed the way we will look at the world for the rest of our lives. Probably the one event that will stand out in every- one ' s mind the most from the past few years was the 1984 NCAA investigation of the football team. This football team went on to victory after stunning victory and won the SEC championship crown with the leadership of Galen Hall. After the victory over Kentucky, which earned the SEC crown, fans began celebrating across campus and in the streets surrounding the school. This celebration last- ed well into the night. The results of the NCAA investigation eventually took the crown away from the football team and imposed many other sanctions. However, the fans will always know the 1984 Gator football squad won the crown. Another long-lasting controversy was Gator Growl. Starting with Gator Growl in 1982 when Robin Williams performed much to the disgust of alumni, faculty, and staff — the controversy to continue to rage for the next several Growls. The question " Who is Growl for, the students or the alumni? " summed up the whole issue. In 1983, Bob Hope was signed to provide family entertainment for the alumni. By restaging his entrance for his TV special, reading off of giant cue cards, and singing with a virtual- ly unknown country singer, he alienated the students and recieved " boos " throughout his performance. The 1984 Growl was once again a successful show, with Bill Cosby using his talents to entertain the students and alumni. The Smothers Brothers were signed to perform for the 1985 show in the continued attempt to keep the alumni happy. Unfortunately, their sibling rivalry humor and duets did not please the students, many of whom had never even heard of the comedy team. As a result Gator Growl turned into " Gator Groan. " In 1986, the problem appeared to be solved once again by signing Billy Crystal. The production satisfied every- one involved. Another highly visible series of events was the nation- wide apartheid protests in the spring of 1985. Some thought it would be a return of the sixties student activi- tism, a change from relative political apathy, but this was not to be. The protests were generally intense but fairly unsuccessful and short-lived. — John Webster I) E. Cometz 2) K. Rotberg 4 Opening 1) Even without a musical act for the second year in a row, Gator Growl proved a tremendous success. This was due mostly to the talent of the headline comedy act, Billy Crystal. 2) Ricky Nattiel fights off a Tulane University defender during one of the many rushes leading to the Gators 63-21 victory in the 1984 season. 3) Bill Cosby, sporting his orange warm up suit, entertains the audience at Gator Growl 1984 by making the everyday hassles of family life seem funny. 4) Pete Self founder of SCAAR leads anti-apartheid demonstration on the Plaza of the Americas in the spring of 1986. 3) R. Davis Opening 5 1) The new Engineering Sciences Library, begun in the summer of 1984 and completed in the fall of 1986, provided the campus with a central location to combine many of its smaller specialized libraries. 2) Anyone unfortunate enough to get stuck in traffic around campus in midafternoon can expect a long wait to get anywhere. 3) The Alligator reports on one of the most memorable events of the year 1986. 4) Due to car trouble, these students arrived in New York several months after the tremendous 4th of July celebration for the rebuilt Statue of Liberty. However, their arrival did coincide with the U.F. vs. Rutgers football game in the Giants stadium, which they did manage to see. 2) J. Webster ti l EGYPT 3) J. Webster Make News The campus underwent several visi- ble changes. These included the addi- tion of an outdoor patio to the Orange and Brew and an ancient rock placed on a pedestal in front of Turlington Hall, still known as GPA to older students. The most noticeable change was the construction of a new engineering computer facility across from Hall. Along with the changing face of the campus, the university also changed presidents in 1984. After serving since 1973, Robert Marston left. Marshall Criser took his place and immediately pledged himself to making this a better university. In the real world, there were many important events and occurrences. The most shocking of these was the explo- sion of the Space Shuttle Challenger in January, 1986. The aftershocks of the explosion were felt for years. The rise of terrorism in 1985 and 1986 and the linking of Libya to the terrorist acts against the United States prompted President Reagan to launch a military attack against Libya in one of the first American anti-terrorist strikes. It was not, however, the first military activity President Reagan ordered dur- ing his terms in office. In the fall of 1983, US Marines occupied the small Caribbean island of Grenada, whose government had been overthrown by a dictatorial group. The summer of 1986 also saw one of the largest celebrations in the history of the United States to accompany the dedication of the rebuilt Statue of Liberty. — J. Webster 4) Unknown person in Liberty State Park, N Y Opening 7 Best Of Times, Worst Of Times Some of the most pleasant times students remember were the less intense times, maybe because there were so few of them. Times spent just talking with friends be- tween classes on a nice day of laying out in the sun on the Plaza of the Americas or the Union north lawn were favorite ways to spend extra time for many students. After the day ' s classes were over, many students en- joyed relaxing outside. Walking around in the afternoon sun, playing frisbee, sleeping on the benches around campus, and laying in the grass reading a good book were ideal ways to recover a little in order to study the night away. After studying far into the night, morning would come around much too soon. Mornings brought with them problems such as rolling out of bed, waking up and figuring out how to get to class. The single problem that almost every student driver experienced, and will probably never forget, was with parking. The University Traffic and Parking Depart- ment issued approximately three times as many parking decals as there were parking spaces. In the meantime, the University continued to destroy parking areas and reserve others. Long waits were inevitible for anyone who had to drive to school. Bicycle riders were also stuck with new problems. Beginning in 1984, city and campus police began crack- ing down on bicyclists in an attempt to curb the number of bicycle-related accidents. New laws were also passed in an attempt to prevent accidents. Students began re- ceiving tickets for riding on the wrong side of the road, riding without a light at night and even for speeding. No matter what students tried to do on campus or in Gainesville, they were usually faced with a line in the attempt to do it. There were lines for books, drop add, the phone company, the power company and the cable company at the beginning of each semester. Throughout the semesters students were faced with lines for football tickets, concert tickets and Gator Growl tickets. Trying to enter a dance club or bar almost always required a wait. It was even necessary to wait in line to get your money out of the bank machines in order to get in lines for these other activities. These are the memories which will shape the lives of all of us who have been in Gator Country for the past few years. After the moment of graduation, these will be all that is left of that fiercely different part of your life commonly called the " college experience " . — John Webster I) J. Webster 2) J. Webster 8 Opening I. U.F. is home to many non-standard activities and people. This skateboarder has found that the rock pedestal in front of Turlington Hall is a good place to practice his art. 2. The Plaza of the Americas was a favorite spot to relax between classes with a friend. 3. Although most students go to the library to study, some end up falling asleep in the peaceful, quiet atmosphere. Others simply go to the library to sleep and do not even take out their books. 4. A senior in aerospace engineering, Tina Lam- beth is not very pleased after receiving her first parking ticket. 5. Trying to get money out of an automatic teller at the Reitz Union usually requires a wait, and Friday ' s present a longer line than usual to the student in need of cash. 4) J. Webster Opening 9 I) E. Cometz Partying all night and playing practical jokes is the mental picture many people have of college students. Although this stereotype is somewhat of an exaggeration, it does imply some- thing about student life — college campuses are centers of con- stant innovation. In addition to the arts, impressive examples of innovation at UF can be found in the forms of Halloween Ball costumes, Homecoming decorations, student political campaigns, and even recreation. Prominent speakers, comedians and performing groups are also brought to UF every year because of the appreciation for novelty that exists here. That creative spirit is captured in the following pages, which testify to the fact that football is not the only reason why " it ' s great to be a Florida Gator.

Protheroe Gators Explore Mexico Last summer, 16 students participated in UF ' s newest foreign study program a six-week stay in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Centered in the city of Merida, the program offered students the opportu- nity to explore the ancient Mayan Indian ruins, relax on the Caribbean beaches, and learn about Yucatecan culture. Students stayed with Mexican families in Merida and studied Spanish and anthropology at the Autonomous University of Yucatan. Because of the strength of the American dollar, students found prices to be very reasonable. The exchange rate was gener- ally 650 pesos to the dollar. Relatively speaking, a city bus ride from Merida to Isla Mujeres cost $4.50. Field trips sponsored by the Autono- mous University of Yucatan included vis- its to the Maya ruins of Dzibichaltun, Ux- mal, Maya , and the Caves of Loltun. The students also spent some free time visiting the ruins of Chichen Itza and Ta- lum, two locations featured in the movie Against All Odds. Favorite weekend pas- times on the Caribbean islands included eating lobster and enjoying the cool sea breeze on Isla Mujeres, and joyriding on the Roads of Cozumel. In addition to practicing Spanish con- versation with their host families, the stu- dents attended classes four days a week in order to study Spanish grammar and Yu- I) M. Protheroe catecan anthropology. A study of the Ma- yan Indian culture, the Spanish colonial system, the War of Independence, the Caste War, the Hennequen Boom, and the Revolution of 1910 comprised the anthro- pology course. Half of the students who participated in the 1986 program were OF students. They were Mark Avera, Patrick Kelly, James Kissinger, Kathy McMahon, Scott Parker, Mark Protheroe, Barbara Ray, and Stacy Willits. The other eight students came from other schools. They were Be- verlee Anderson (Wright State Universi- ty), Naomi Despres (University of Michi- gan), Thomas Griffin (Santa Fe Community College), Mr. and Mrs. Ken- nedy (Florida Junior College), Alan and James Klasfeld (Emory University), and John Linstroth (Holy Cross College). — Mark Protheroe 1) Naomi Despres, a student from the University of Michigan, scales a large piece of driftwood in Cozu- mel. 2) Stacy Willits, Patrick Kelly, Naomi Despres, and Kathy McMahon pose in front of the Governor ' s Palace at Uxmal, a Mayan site. 3) The huge Cathedral of Merida, built in colonial times, faces the Plaza of Independence, the city ' s central square. 3) M.

Buckley during his speech at UF. Buckley spoke at the O ' Connell Center on September 10, opening a new season of speakers sponsored by Accent. Bill Buckley opened his speech by say- ing that American foreign policy should take into account the lessons of American history. He also devoted a lot of time to analyzing US-Soviet relations. " The declaration of a common purpose between the Soviet Union and the United States runs the risk of being deeply subver- sive, " Buckley said. " We both have huge inventories of nuclear weapons. We have nothing else in common ... To suggest otherwise is on the order of suggesting that the man who pushes the old lady into the way of an oncoming bus and the man who pushes the old lady out of the way of an oncoming bus are both to be designated as people who push old ladies around. " Buckley also said that it is pointless to expect summit conferences to produce any real nuclear disarmament because such disarmament would be disastrous to the Soviet Union. " Subtract from America all our nuclear weapons — every last one of its nuclear weapons and it would be re- duced merely to a huge east European state a Northern India, so to speak. " Speaking on the subject of the success of US-Taiwan economic relations was Dr. Fredrick Chien. His September 18 speech was sponsored by the China Study Group and the International Student Association as well as Accent. During recent years,. Taiwan had become a favorable market for American pr oducts. — Mark Protheroe 1) Buckley signs autographs and talks with students alter his speech. 2) Dr. Fredrick Chien comments on US-Taiwan trade relations. 2) E.

Cofer Religion And Politics Mingle A park-like area famous for political rallies and religious activities was a good description for the Plaza of the Americas. The images of Hare Krishnas, Protes- tant evangelists and rallies centering on the issues of Nicaragua and South Africa were a common sight to students walking through the Plaza. In the afternoons, the Hare Krishna devotees served free lunches and provided musical entertainment with Eastern in- struments. Not to be outdone, the evange- lists traditionally made the Plaza the site of their preaching. Jed and Cindy Smock were the most popular evangelists due to their frank discussions about sex. Groups calling for economic sanctions against South Africa could be found hand- ing out literature, while forums on the American involvement in the Nicaraguan civil war were held. At times, these activi- ties turned into shouting matches. Of course, the Plaza was ultimately the students ' favorite place to relax. Many dents took a break from their studies in order to throw a frisbee or lay in the sun. — Mark Protheroe 1) Cindy Smock, a travelling evangelist, warns OF students against the sins of promiscuity. 2) The Plaza is a great place to study and rest. 3) A student makes the mistake of arguing with Cindy Smock.

Webster 1 18 Jim Belushi With Jim Belushi 1) J. Webster 2) J. Webster 3) J. Webster Jim Belushi of Saturday Night Live fame lectured at UF on September 26. The comedian-turned actor had opened his film career this year with appearances in About Last Night, Jumpin ' Jack Flash and Little Shop of Horrors. Sponsored by Accent and Rock 104, Be- lushi ' s appearance had been preceeded with controversy. Associate Dean of Stu- dent Affairs Phyllis Meek had labelled the advertising as obscene. During his lecture, Belushi answered questions from the audience and talked about improvisational comedy. In addi- tion, Belushi presented an improvisational " workshop " with three UF students. The comedian ' s lecture was preceeded by a press conference, where Belushi talked about his education, his career and Phyllis Meek. The following interview was the Tower ' s portion of that press confer- ence. Tower: How did you come across the part for About Last Night? Belushi: I did the play in 1979, and the producers who produced the play pro- duced the movie. Basically, they got some money up and what they decided to do was to peddle it. For six years, they peddled it and Tri-Star Pictures decided to do it. Then, I came in, read for the director, did a screen test for the studio and I got it. Tower: Is this your first work with David Mamet? Belushi: Yeah, Sexual Perversity in Chi- cago was the play. Tower: What did you do before you went into comedy? Belushi: My father had a restaurant — a steak house — a very nice restaurant. I worked there from age 11 to 16 as a bus- boy, dishwasher . . . worked up to cook. Then, he sold it. If he didn ' t sell it, I ' d probably be serving dinner right now. In college, I painted houses to pay for school. Tower: What did you study? Belushi: In college, I studied speech, the- atre, education. Tower: What school did you attend? Belushi: I went to three schools. I went to a junior college called College of DuPage, I went to Southern Illinois University and I went to University of Illinois. Tower: Do you plan to do any more televi- sion? Belushi: At the moment, no. I ' ve done a lot of television. I did two prime time se- ries: Saturday Night Live, an episode of Lav erne and Shirley. So, I ' ve done it and it ' s a very tough thing to do, but I want to explore film a little bit. Tower: A UF administrator was offended by Accent ' s advertising poster of your lec- ture, which read " I Spent the Night with Jim Belushi. " Belushi: (Phyllis) Meek? Tower: Yes, but I would like to know your opinion of that. Belushi: Is it a woman? Tower: Yes. Belushi: Is she married? Tower: I wouldn ' t know. Belushi: Does she get laid? (Reporters laugh.) Belushi: It ' s fine. She can be offended by it. I ' m probably totally offended by her. Tower: You said you haven ' t done a uni- versity lecture circuit for quite a long time. What made you decide to go back with it? Belushi: Well, first of all, there was inter- est here. They approached me. Secondly, when you work in film and in television, you get very removed from the audience. One of the reasons I like doing these is because you ' re in front of a live audience and you get a feel for where their sensibil- ity for humor is . . . The other reason is when I was at college, there was a lecture series. I used to go to them all -- every one — and they really inspired me and the like. Now, I have something to offer and it ' s kind of like a repaying . . . I take the mon- ey that I receive from this and put it into a fund for my son for college. — Mark Protheroe 1) Jim Belushi listens to a question at the press conference that preceeds his lecture. 2) Belushi is 42 years old, divorced and has a six- year-old son named Robert. 3) Belushi grew up in Wheaton, Illinois, a city just outside of Chicago. Jim Belushi 19 Last year, students had the opportunity to see the prestigious Arthur M. Sackler Collection, a display of ancient South American Indian ceramics. Presented by the Florida State Museum, the collection featured the artistic achievements of Indi- an cultures that were located in what is now Peru. Cultures represented by the collection included Inca, Nasca, Moche, Chancay, Recuay, and Huari. The artifacts also col- lectively represented a large range of time from 300 B.C. to 1470 A.D. Included in the display were a large number of vessels with unusually shaped spouts. Upon being filled with water, these vessels produced musical tones or animal- like sounds. They, of course, represented one of the most intriguing examples of Pre-Columbian art. — Mark Protheroe 1) This large female figurine is from the Chancay culture, located on the central coast of present-day Peru, and dates from the 1000-1470 A.D. period. 2) The examples of Nasca pottery, dated between 250 B.C. and 250 A.D., depict animals and abstract designs.

He cer- tainly was no stranger on campus, as he lectured in classes like Juris Prudence, Legislative Drafting, and Taxation. On an average, Hart spoke to two to three classes per day in each area. He also spoke at informal seminars at the Holland Law Center which students and faculty attend- ed. His discussion at the O ' Connel Center, while on another visit to campus, included several topics from the importance of an education to speaking on political issues. Hart refused to comment on whether or not he would become an official candidate for the presidency in 1988. However, he did express how he stood on political is- sues. — JoLynn Drake 1) Gary Hart fields questions from the Gainesville media. 2) Although refusing to comment on his presidential candidacy for the 1988 election he spoke on several issues. 3) Gary Hart discusses his political convictions. 2) R.

The event was Rock Alike ' 87, a rock star look-alike lip- synch contest. Organized by Students Against Multiple Sclerosis (SAMS), the contestants impersonated their favorite rock stars to raise money to fight Multiple Sclerosis. " Rock Alikes " were competing at over 250 college campuses and the cam- pus raising the most money would be the site of a concert to be broadcast on MTV. The regional Rock Alike winners would compete in a national lip-synch competi- tion. The contest was hosted by Greg Wynters of Rock 104 and co-hosted by Suzanne Rowe, UF ' s 1986 winner of Rock Alike. The winner of the evening was Mark Minck from Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Kappa. Mark portrayed Tom Cruise in the " Danger Zone " and in doing so did his part to help fight Multiple Scle- rosis. — Chris Hughes and Anne Marie Zecca 1) Representing the Purple Porpoise is Wonton John Gillooly as Otis Day singing " Shout.

The 1987 Miss Black Student Union pageant was entitled " Ladies Of The 80 ' s In Control. " On the evening of February 14, four women entered the University Auditorium not knowing which of them would leave with the title of Miss B.S.U. During the night ' s activities, the contestants competed in the traditional evening wear, talent, swimsuit, and question and answer categories. Sharon Riley, the 1986 Miss B.S.U., handed her crown to her successor Pam Redfern. Pam said, " I wanted to cry, but I told myself no, I ' m not going to do that. " Miss Redfern is a junior majoring in Computer Science. For her talent she performed a skit entitl ed " Mary Had A Little Lamb. " When asked about any final comments she would like to make, Pam shared these thoughts, " I think it is a rewarding experience, and more women should get involved. Being in the pageant had a lot of positive points and Karen Miller (pageant director) made things run smoothly. " The other winners were Diane Tucker, first runner-up, and Jan Williams, Miss Congeniality. — JoLynn Drake 1) The 1986 Miss B.S.U.

We had to stand in a long line just so we could buy our tickets, we had to get up early on a (shud- der) Saturday, we had to make that long drive to Jacksonville, and we had to put up with about 35,000 loud and obnoxious Bulldog fans (that was, in itself, a gamble because the minimum recommended dis- tance between us and any Bulldog fan was fifty miles.) Lastly we had to put up with a massive traffic jam in order to drive back to Gainesville. Was it really worth making that road trip to the annual Florida-Geor- gia game? You bet it was! The Florida-Georgia game may no long- er be the " world ' s largest cocktail party " , but it was still THE game of the football season and the best reason for a road trip. The key to the road trip was preparation. First, our cooler had to be packed with the proper food and drinks. Next, we had to draw up our anti-Bulldog signs. The final step of preparation was attire: we had to be wearing our best Gator shirt and hat. We had to leave early on Saturday in order to get to Jacksonville and find a good spot to have our tailgate party. This was where we shared good times with any other Gator fans. The tailgate party also served as a time to argue about how many points the Gators would win by or to fur- ther insult any Bulldog fans. Once we were in the Gator Bowl and the game started, we had to make as much noise as possible. This not only served to inspire the Gators, but it also showed the Georgia fans that the Florida fans could be just as loud and obnoxious as they were. When the game ended with Gator vic- tory we chanted " It ' s great to be a Florida Gator " with the other Gator fans. The final stage of the road trip was the drive back to Gainesville. As we waded through the traffic jam, we had a final opportunity to insult the Bulldog fans. When we arrived home, we agreed that this had been a worthwhile experience. — Ed Cometz 1) Fred Brady, Ross Fleischman and Ken Rowland show off their anti-Bulldog signs. 2) Thousands of football fans crowd the Jacksonville expressways every November for the annual Florida- Georgia game. 3) Many students patronize fast food restaurants before taking the road to Jacksonville. 3) E.

They were the Lips Live cast and their performances added to the excitement of the audience participation that accompa- nied The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a midnight movie at the Oaks Mall AMC Six Theatre. Formed in November 1985, Lips Live started mimicking the actions of the Rocky Horror characters, but without the aid of costumes or props. Gradually, the Lips Live productions became more elabo- rate, and the weekly audiences also grew in size. Within a few months of the cast ' s formation, Lips Live was playing to sellout crowds. This year the activities of Lips Live con- tinued to grow. On February 14 the cast sponsored their second annual Miss Lips contest. Contestants participated in one of two categories: intimate female apparel and favorite Rocky Horror character. The cast had accumulated approximate- ly fifty props to complement their exten- sive wardrobe of costumes. They also pro- vided the audience with printed programs, complete with still pictures from the mov- ie. The cast credited Elise Wiestreich, a pioneer Lips Live performer, as the person who named the cast. She was inspired by the singing lips that appear during the opening credits of the movie. Publicity was solely the responsibility of Lips Live until this year. Don Murphy, the new theatre manager, agreed to finance 50% of the program printing costs. Also, since Halloween, the theatre ' s advertise- ment of Rocky Horror featured the invit- ing words of " Live Cast.

Even though it had rained previously that morn- ing, the weather cleared up just in time for the annual presentation of clowns, funny cars, bands and floats. Traditionally, awards are presented to the best floats and the 1986 parade was no exception. The float constructed by Sigma Chi and Pi Beta Phi captured both the Best Greek Float Award and the Best Overall Unit Award. Second place for a Greek float went to Lambda Chi Alpha and Kappa Delta. The American Society of Agricultural Engineers received the Best Campus Float Award and the College of Building Con- struction won second place in that catego- ry.

He chose his staff and began work immediately to make Growl fun for both students and alumni. The technical crew set up the stage the preceding week, testing the speakers, wir- ing and lights. The night before the show Growl had a dress rehearsal, perfecting the timing of each segment. The big night finally came and the show, pleasing alumni and students, went off as planned.

Crystal was also known for popularizing such expressions as " Dah-ling, you look mah-velous! ' and " It ' s unbelievable! " and he didn ' t fail to use them during his performance at Growl. In his impression of Fernando Lamas, the comedian lampooned the Hispanic producer ' s frequent use of the word " mah- velous. " Crystal had made a 45 record about Lamas the previous year. Crystal also presented a bittersweet character sketch of Ricky, a somewhat dullwitted New Jersey man, at his 20-year high school reunion. Ricky, like Lamas, had a favorite word that he liked to use frequently: unbelievable. The comedian even made fun of his own adolescent experiences. He particularly drew laughs when he comically explained what it was like to suffer from a changing voice and the overwhelming sexual urges at puberty. — Mark Protheroe 1) The comedian sets up an imaginary scene about cliches in old adventure movies. 2) Crystal ' s shirt was a gift from the OF Baseball team. 3) Billy Crystal, holding an imaginary rifle, employs student help in order make fun of old adventure movies. 3) J.

Cometz Whenever the weekend arrived, the Number One question on everybody ' s mind was: " Where are we going tonight? " Gainesville offered the answer to this fa- miliar question with its many night spots. If dancing was on the night ' s agenda, Gainesville could supply the place, no matter what the musical tastes were. For example, Rickenbacher ' s Lounge offered jazz and Stack ' s Eatery and Drinkery played Top 40 songs, while Dub ' s offered rock-n-roll and The Bar offered New Wave music. For the late-nigh t partiers, there was the Be Bop Cafe. If a student preferred just a few beers with friends, there were plenty of choices. There were, of course, the " standard " oys- ter bars, such as Calico Jack ' s and The Purple Porpoise. Then, there was always Danny ' s Eating and Drinking Establish- ment, Tailgator and Chelsea Street Pub for a quiet evening. For those people who wanted something different, there was The Park, which of- fered hot tub rentals, complete with cham- pagne. The Hippodrome State Theatre, on the other hand, showed classic films and also presented popular stage plays. The answer to the " Where are we going tonight? " question never had to be " I don ' t know. " Whether it was one of Gaines- ville ' s night spots or even a friend ' s party, there were plenty of places to have a great time — and a late-night breakfast waiting at Skeeter ' s to top off the night! — Ed Cometz 1) A waitress at Calico Jack ' s Oyster Bar and Sea- food House takes a break with her boyfriend. 2) The employees reflect the casual atmosphere of Beach-Nutts Beach Bar and Grill. 2) E.

Come on, say it, you want me. " That ' s what Sandra Bernhardt said to one student in the front row at the O ' Connell Center. Bernhardt is far from being known as having a " good girl " image. She is known, however, for her forwardness on stage. Embarrassing men with her risque com- ments as she did in her performance on January 23 has been her trademark for five years. Bernhardt who first began her career making appearances on HBO ' s Comedy Shop, recently has been seen on Honda Scooter commercials and on tour. As his eyes were closed, he wrote some- thing down and said, " Does the name, Leon mean anything to you? " The Amaz- ing Kreshkin ' s performance had begun. Kreshkin, Hypnotist and mind-reader, was another talent that Accent brought to campus with the help of the J. Wayne Reitz Union. His show on September 14 was astonishing. The 250 students who at- tended found themselves extremely recep- tive to what Kreshkin calls his " abilities " . His show consisted of hypnosis, trans- mitted thoughts, and post-hypnotic sug- gestions. Max Weinberg, drummer for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, whom Accent brought to campus on November 12 was a little out of the ordinary. His discussion " Max Weinberg And The Big Beat " was coupled with a demonstration on various drum beats. Weinberg discussed the different drum- ming styles that have been around for the past three decades in rock and roll music. When he talked about specific styles, he demonstrated it for the audience on his drumset. — JoLynn Drake 44 Aeeent Speakers Music, Magic And Comedy I) L. Alderman On September 11, Richard Valenza, the owner of Marketing Relations, spoke to OF students preparing to graduate. The seminar was designed to broaden their awareness and strengthen their confi- dence. He also discussed dressing in the business world. He went into detail about how important a neat physical appearance is. At 27, Mr. Valenza is one of the new breed of entrepreneurs establishing a trend across America. That trend is to take a good idea and make it work and Mr. Va- lenza seems to be doing just that. — Chris Hughes On the night of February 13, another prominent speaker arrived on campus. Don King, promotor of such things as Mi- chael Jackon ' s " Victory Tour " , the Hagler-Leonard boxing fight, and various other musical and athletic events through the years, talked to students about the pro- motional end of the entertainment busi- ness. He described the ups and downs that are involved with advertising certain shows.

The five man band — Eric Bloom, Donald " Buck Dharma " Roeser, Allen Lanier, Joe Bouchard, and Rick Downey — rocked the large crowd with their new material and some old favorites. The group ' s most popular songs included " Don ' t Fear the Reaper " and " Burnin ' for You. " However, the song that brought the audience to its feet was the head-banging favorite " Godzilla. " Homecoming 1986 featured a Saturday night concert as part of the weekend ' s fes- tivities. The October 11 concert at the O ' Connell Center headlined two bands, Honeymoon Suite and Starship. Another big crowd was on hand as both bands put on exciting shows. Honeymoon Suite was a five man band based in Toronto. They had been popular in Canada for years and were rapidly gain- ing popularity in the U.S. In the fall of 1986, they were on tour promoting their second album The Big Prize. The group ' s members were Johnny Dee, Derry Grehan, Ray Coburn, Gary Lalonde and David Betts. The crowd was " rockin ' " as the band performed its most popular hit " Feel It Again. " The band also played other fa- vorites, such as " New Girl Now, " " What Does It Take? " and " Bad Attitude. " Starship was a band with a long history of personnel and name changes as well as popularity. The band was first formed in San Francisco in 1965 as The Jefferson Airplane. In 1974, the band changed the name to The Jefferson Starship, and in 1985, the name was shortened to Starship. The latest members of Starship were Grace Slick, Mickey Thomas, Craig Cha- quico, Pete Sears and Donny Baldwin. Starship had many hit albums, and their latest, Knee Deep in the Hoopla, was no exception. The band opened with the al- bum ' s biggest hit " We Built This City. " Starship also performed the album ' s other hit song " Sara, " along with some of their older hits, such as " Laying It on the Line " and " No Way Out.

Webster Student Government Productions (SGP) presented several concerts in the fall semester, incorporai ng a wide variety of musical styles. These concerts ranged from some very well known performers to some previously unheard of groups. The Blues Busters and the Beat Farmers were presented at the bandshell for the Homecoming Weekend Kick-off Concert. The show was very energetic and present- ed listeners with a different brand of mu- sic. The Blues Busters were a blues rock oriented band, while the Beat Farmers had a distinct country sound. Two British groups, the Fixx and the Moody Blues performed at the O ' Connell Center on October 3. The Fixx performed many favorites from their previous al- bums, including " Red Skies At Night " , " Saved By Zero " , along with selections from their latest album, " Secret Separa- tion " . The Moody Blues were on tour in support of their latest album, " The Other Side Of Life " . They performed many of the album ' s more popular songs such as " Your Wildest Dreams " along with clas- sics such as " Nights In White Satin " and " The Voice " . This concert had a rather unusual audience. Half of the audience was young and was at the show primarily to see the Fixx, and the other half of the audience was significantly older, and were there to see the Moody Blues. Although not appearing at Gator Growl, much to the dismay of many stu- dents, Jimmy Buffet did appear at the O ' Connell Center on November 16. Jim- my Buffet performed many songs from his latest album, " Floridays " , but the audi- ence enjoyed his older songs the most. The crowd sang along as Jimmy Buffet per- formed " standards " such as " Margarita- ville " and " Cheeseburger In Paradise " . The only question left after the show was " when will he be back? " — John Webster — Ed Cometz 1) Jimmy Buffet enjoys his music as much as the audience does. 2) Dan Brown of the Fixx maintained a stoic appear- ance throughout the concert. 3) The Moody Blues ' Justin Hayward pays close attention to his instrument, while performing in front of a huge audience. 3) J.

Mr. Saied, who has been recreating Sousa Band performance since 1981, com- bined his physical resemblance to Sousa and his study of Sousa ' s conducting style in order to revive the Sousa phenomenon. Saied and the UF Symphonic Band, dressed in authentic Sousa Band uniforms, gave two performances on Feb. 15 due to the popular appeal of the President ' s Visit- ing Artist Series event. Both concerts drew audiences that filled University Memorial Auditorium to capacity. The concerts featured a diverse selec- tion of music, ranging from Offenbach ' s " Orpheus in the Underworld " to " Turkey in the Straw. " Mrs. Sousa, imperson ated by Mrs. Saied, also led the audience in the " Good Old Days Sing-Along, " which con- contained tunes like " A Bicycle Built for Two " and " Auld Lang Syne.

In addition to producing the September performances of The Foreigner, the Florida Players pre- sented three other plays in the fall. The following paragraphs are summaries of those performances. Extremities Marjorie was attacked by an intruder, and then she sought revenge. In the psy- chological drama Extremities, Marjorie went after the man who raped her in order to make him feel the torment she went through. Using the themes of rape and revenge, Extremities examined the hidden violence that lurked inside of every human being. 52 Florida Players 1) Courtesy of Florida Players 2) Courtesy of Florida Players Best New Play Hits Constans Carousel Star-crossed lovers, a carnival ride and the musical magic of Rodgers and Hammer- stein were elements of Carousel, one of the most famous musicals in the history of American theatre. Set in a small New En- gland fishing village, the play centered around carousel barker Billy Bigelow and his ill-fated romance with a local mill woman, Julie Jordan. The town ' s collec- tive fascination with Bigelow ' s carousel served as a link between the different ele- ments of the story. Unlike Shakespeare ' s Romeo and Juliet, Billy and Julie never found the words that truly expressed their relationship. The unforgettable songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein were woven into the fabric of Carousel and created a unique tapestry of words, music and im- ages. The Homecoming The Homecoming examined the battle of the sexes and its effects on a North Lon- don household. The comedy drama also took a symbolic approach to the subject by focusing on the struggle between the civil and barbaric sides of human nature. As the characters tried to keep their conflict- ing emotions balanced, they began to real- ize that the " war " between men and wom- en had no winners. — Anne Marie Zecca 1) The dance sequences of the Florida Players ' pro- duction of Carousel were choreographed by Lisa Martin. 2) The presentation of The Foreigner was one of eight productions the Florida Players featured during their 1986-87 season.

Scenes and Revelations The drama Scenes and Revelations dealt with the lives of four Pennsylvania sisters in 1894 as they prepared to leave America. While most of their peers went west, the four sisters planned to travel east to England. In flashbacks, Rebecca, Hele- na, Charlotte and Millie recalled a string of lost loves and hidden desires. Dance ' 87 Dance ' 87 was a collection of student choreographed numbers that featured a broad cross-section of artistic styles. Vi- brant jazz, free-flowing modern and avant-garde post-modern were some of the genres represented in the program. Selec- tions ranged from the spiritual " Praise Him in the Dance " to " It ' s Not Easy Be- ing Green. " Just as diverse were the musi- cal angles presented by artists like Elton John, The Eurythmics and Charlie Dan- iels. Slow Dance on the Killing Ground Guilt-ridden, tormented people strug- gled to survive a troubled decade in Slow Dance on the Killing Ground. Against a backdrop of a Brooklyn store in 1962, the principal characters Randel, Glas and Rosie sought to free themselves from their inner prisons. Through the course of this three-act psychological drama, the people confronted the memories of the Jewish Holocaust, abortion and the chang- ing face of the world around them. The Three Sisters Anton Chekhov was considered the greatest playwright of pre-revolutionary Russia. In his play The Three Sisters, created a dramatic comedy dealing with human destiny. The story concentrat- ed on the three daughters of an army offi- cer and their longing to leave the provin- cial wilderness for Moscow. The Three Sisters combined futility, optimism and lyric beauty to create a sense of transition between the sedate era of the Czars and the chaotic upheaval of the Bolshevik Rev- olution. — Anne Marie Zecca 1) Rusti Brandman and Jane Landers give visual form to the song " Points of Contact " in Dance ' 87. 2) The Florida Players closed their season with An- ton Chekhov ' s The Three Sisters.

Three years later, the Gainesville Post Office declared it second-class parcel in the Act of August 25, 1912 and in 1973 the Alligator became independent because of a dispute with the administration over censorship during the turbulent years of the 70 ' s. Now, The Independent Florida Alliga- tor has a circulation of over 36,000 and is rated among the frequently read newspa- pers on campus. During the fall and spring semesters The Alligator is distributed five days a week and two days a week during the summer.

" Yep, " said Russell Johnson, a UF re- searcher specializing in blood and immune system disorders. " Crack kills AIDS. " Johnson said the substance " first anes- thetizes the patient into a relaxed state, drains him of his inhibitory reflexes, stim- ulates him to seek unsecured audio compo- nents then attacks the HTLV-iii virus. " Johnson admitted that crack cocaine does have side effects, such as instant ad- diction and poor wardrobe selection. " But crack saves lives, " he said. " Just a hit a day will keep the doctor away, " Johnson said. A report released before the press con- ference showed that Johnson first infected 100 lab animals with the AIDS virus, and then cured 97 of them by forcing the ani- mals to " smoke massive quantities of crack cocaine. " Animal rights activists who attended Johnson ' s press conference immediately protested, dem anding to know the type an- imal he had used. Last year, the group stopped an experiment proposing to use 40 kittens and a high-speed blender to test the I) M. Protheroe effect of flesh demolition on personality development in human babies. The report showed that Johnson, a 56- year-old castaway from a deserted Hawai- ian island, had used bulldogs in his experi- ment. The protesters claimed after Johnson pointed this out, and some were even pleased and smiled gleefully. Near the end of the conference, UF President Marshall Criser came in wear- ing a stategically-placed derby. " This is nonsense, " he said. " What Gainesville needs is growth, not a bunch of postleftist Maoist professors trying to plant grass ev- erywhere. " AIDS patients should be paved, " Criser said. " People who try to help AIDS patients should be paved to increase the tax base. Pavement should be paved. Tax- es should be paved. Farm implements, but- tocks, pave them all. " Criser left the room, followed by several thousand Pharoah ants. " We need no longer fear crack cocaine, Johnson told reporters. " We should em- brace crack wholeheartedly. " In a phone interview later that day, United States Surgeon General C. Everett Koop said, " That idea is totally ous, but at the same time very exciting.

Webster Mardi Gras meant parades, wild people grabbing for worthless plastic beads and trinkets, intoxicated people walking around in highly decorated costumes and masks, and extreme decadence. This year it also meant the ultimate Spring Break road trip for many UF students. Most students left early Friday morn- ing, some blowing off classes to head to New Orleans and four days of non-stop partying. A favorite spot in New Orleans where UF students found other school members was Raul ' s, a bar on St. Charles Street with a good vantage point to view parades. The nice people met in front soon changed, however, as dubloons, trinkets and beads were thrown from the floats. Wrestling matches were often the result of too many hands grabbing for things at once. One place where UF students gathered was Pat O ' Brien ' s, home of the Hurricane drink. Gators soon started the Orange and Blue chant, and continued with anti-Geor- gia chants and Gator cheers. The last day of parades was the best for some. Girls on the floats accepted kisses from the crowds in return for trinkets. Students talked about Mardi Gras dur- ing classes for weeks to come and boasted of the treasures gained from four days of decadence. — John Webster I) Two participants in the parades walk by the crowds. 2) The floats of Mardi Gras are large and are deco- rated quite extravagantly. 3) The most common phrase heard by these two men is: " Hey mister throw me something!

He certainly became accustomed to the curi- ous tugs from small children and the atten- tion he gained from the ladies as the uni- versity ' s most popular celebrity — Albert. As a graduate of Advertising, Chris was asked how he felt about Albert and the tradition that went along with the mascot. He replied, " I think I ' ll take part of Al- bert ' s spirit with me when I go [gradu- ate]. " The university also added two more mascots to the roll during basketball sea- son.

Spring Break 69 70 Aeademics I) Sherryl Milton The University of Florida represented a variety of things to a variety of people. It stood for knowledge, learning, ties of friend- ship, sports and parties. It accentuated tradition by combining old with new ideas, old rites with new activities. The new Engineering Sciences Library showed the blending of necessity and utility as it applied the standards of the past to new ideas to create a pleasant addition to the campus. Academics continued to improve its already favorable reputa- tion by combining the knowledge and experience of distinguished instructors with the creativity and motivation of the students. Each was important to the university individually, yet working together they improved the high standards of the university more than either could have alone. Instructors have always evaluated students to establish records of academic ability and personal opinions. But the tables were turned and the students in each college were asked about their favorite instructors.

The college specialized in a broad scope of professional disciplines such as archi- tecture, building construction, interior design and landscape architecture on the undergraduate level. On the gradu- ate level, the college offered programs through the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, the School of Build- ing Construction and the Department of Architecture. The college ' s library and resource center was one of the larg- est collections of its kind in the south- east. The College of Architecture played a major role in the community as the de- partments of architecture, landscape architecture, and the School of Build- ing Construction celebrated over fifty years of service to Floridians. The col- lege also contributed to community, state, regional and national efforts to conserve and improve the quality of the natural and built environments through research projects. — Melissa Kroll College Of Arehiteeture 77 Market Turns 3) L.

Lauredo The university has been one of the most widely acclaimed research institu- tions in the country. It is most recog- nized for research in the fields of physi- cal, biological and social sciences and business. Marketing is the research branch of business and Dr. Richard Lutz has served as the profess or of Principles of Marketing since 1982. He defined mar- keting as " that aspect of a firm that has its sensors out in the community. " Lutz served as chairman of the mar- keting department; researcher in con- sumer behavior; member of the Editori- al Review Boards of many major business, marketing and advertising journals; Graduate Coordinator for the marketing department, and has written or helped prepare over 45 books, manu- scripts, and articles. Lutz said, howev- er, " This has been quite secondary. The most important thing in my life is my family. " His overall view of life: " Take your job seriously and not yourself. " Charac- terized and driven by this laid back phi- losophy of life, Lutz attended the Uni- versity of Illinois at Urbana where he was influenced by a Teaching Assistant he had in marketing. The experience made Lutz develop great admiration for his Teaching Assistants once he be- came a professor. One of Lutz ' s Teach- ing Assistants, Mary Weatherford, 4BA, said, " Dr. Lutz ' s enthusiasm for the marketing discipline inspired me to pursue it as a career. His insight and ability to get the message across to his students are his most powerful teaching tools. " Marketing was just one of the many aspects of the Business College, which strived to maintain high standards. The college tightened its admission stan- dards and raised the required grade point average for admission to a 2.8. The College also welcomed a new dean, Dr. Alan Merten. Dr. Merten was for- merly the associate dean of Business Administration at the University of Michigan before taking over for Dean Robert Lanzilotti who returned to teaching in July. Dr. Merten stressed a close link between the university and the business world whe n he became dean. — Carmen Fowler Business Administration 79 Dentists Prepare For Future 3) Courtesy of the School of Dentistry I) Courtesy of the Sehool of Dentistry 2) Courtesy of the Sehool of Dentistry 5) Courtesy of the School of Dentistry 6) Courtesy of the School of Dentistry 1) Dental assistant Karen Fischlschweiger helps fourth year student Randy Lane prepare to inject anesthesia. 2) Third year student Maria Gundian adjusts teeth with a mounted cast and articulator. 3) Orthodontics resident Tom Epps lessens a pa- tient ' s anxiety with humor. 4) (L to R) Second year students Tom Ward, Allen Williams, and Sergio Vallejo watch Dr. Clair Reitz demonstrate proper techniques on a patient model. 5) Third year student Bruce Evans observes while a dental assistant and Dr. Jim Rickleson work with a patient. 6) Dr. Jose Medina was recognized for his contribu- tions with many distinguished faculty awards. 4) Courtesy of the Sehool of Dentistry The college of dentistry, the only dental school in Florida, was founded in 1972. although a relatively young school, the college strived toward excel- lence by preparing its graduates to en- ter private dental practice, graduate programs, research activities, and a lifetime of continuing e ducation. Dental students earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree by completing a four year program. This program con- sisted of intensive studying and lab and clinical work. In clinical work, students worked on actual patients while faculty members obser ved and gave advice. An outstanding faculty member rec- ognized for his contributions within the school of dentistry was Dr. Jose Medi- na. Dr. Medina has contributed greatly to both dental education and the dental profession. He was one of two faculty members selected for distinguished fac- ulty awards and honored by Florida Blue Key during the homecoming weekend.

Since then the college has grown to in- clude five departments and over 100 faculty members. The college sought to remain among the top in the nation by maintaining innovative programs such as PROTEACH. This teacher educa- tion program required five years to complete and allowed students to grad- uate with a Master of Education de- gree. Students also gain extensive teaching experience under this pro- gram. A board consisting of faculty and stu- dents selected Dr. Samuel Andrews as the 1986 College of Education Teacher of the Year. Dr. Andrews, an assistant professor in the foundations of educa- tion department, received his PhD de- gree in foundations of education from the University of Connecticut in 1971. He has been a faculty member at UF since 1969. Born and raised in Canada, Dr. Andrews overcame early bi-lingual difficulties to earn his B.A. at Sir George Williams University and teach- ing certificate at McDonald College of McGill University. He began teaching in 1955, during which he earned his M.A. in Education from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Andrews chose to teach founda- tions of education because he felt that two few teachers had a grasp of their professional heritage. He decided he would do his best work helping to pre- pare teachers. UF attracted him be- cause it allowed him to teach in greater depth and in a variety of courses. Stu- dents and Colleagues, he said, " make the job most enjoyable. " Dr. Andrews was proud that he has always been able to immerse himself in his work; and his work as a teacher to him, is the most important in the world. — Hai Vu Edueation 83 I Engineers 0 1) J.

Dr. Vu Ngyen, an Agricul- tural engineering specialist, applied sci- ence to the most basic of life ' s needs; that of food production. Dr. Ngyen spent two years in the ag- ricultural country of Cameroon, on the continent of Africa, at the University Centre of Dschang, and helped those people begin development of a new Ag- ricultural Engineering department. Dr. Ngyen said, " Africa is quite an- other world, there were problems, but as a whole, it was a good experience and a need was fulfilled. " Dr. Ngyen ' s work demonstrated man ' s purpose for the sci- ence of engineering, to apply new and unique knowledge to overcoming life ' s oldest and newest problems. Agricultural Engineering was one of many highly technical engineering fields offered at the University. Being one of the largest schools on campus, the college of engineering worked hard to maintain and update standards. The department of engineering sciences un- derwent changes when Dr. Eisenberg replaced Dr. Knox Millsaps as chair- person. Also, the college of engineering gained new facilities with the comple- tion of the new engineering sciences lilbrary. — Carmen Fowler Pg. 84 1) John Green adjusts pressure tubes on a wing in the lowspeed wind tunnel prior to an experi- ment.

Established jointly with the college of Architecture in 1925, in 1975, it broke away from the joint college and became the college of fine arts. Since then, many fine teachers and dedicated stu- dents have developed it into the strong department it is today. One of many fine teachers who have shown students their side of the fine arts was Mallory McCane-O ' Connor.

The comple- tion of the law building in 1914 added to the permanence of the University and the College. It was later accredited by the New York State Board of Re- gents in 1917, admitted by the Associa- tion of American Law Schools in 1920, and recognized as an approved school by the American Bar Association in 1925. The college of law strived to achieve its goal to impart a thorough, scientific, and practical knowledge of the law, to- gether with an understanding of its role in a democratic society. One teacher who aided this goal was Dr. Alexis M. Durham. Dr. Durham graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a PhD in Criminology. He has been teaching and influencing students at the University since 1983. Christine Den- aro, 1UF, said " Dr. Durham is very knowledgeable in the field of Criminal Justice and his lectures mirror this. He makes the class very interesting and worth attending. " The college went on a selective ad- missions program due to the large num- ber of students who sought to enter the college in studies of criminology, crimi- nal justice, and the law at the under- graduate level. Admission into the law school was limited to those students who had a B.A. from a qualified institu- tion, and had both satisfactory under- graduate grade point averages and scores on the LSAT, the law school ad- missions test. — Melissa Kroll — Hai Vu 2) Courtesy of College of Law 1) The interest many students have expressed in the college of law have led to limited enrollment and larger classes. 2) Many Workshops inform students about the col- lege of Law. 90 Law UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LAW REVIEW UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LAW UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LAW REM 1k UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LAW R UNIVERSITY OF FLORID LAW REVIEW OE FLORIDA 01 FLORIDA LAY 4 OF FLORIDA sit UNIVE 1) The University of Florida Law Review was a valuable reference tool to law students who spent long hours researching cases. 2) Students benefited from the personal experience of such teachers as Jeffrey Lewis, Dean Associate Professor of law. 2) Courtesy of College of Law I) Courtesy of College of Law Law 91 I) L.

I) I The College of Liberal Arts and Sci- ences was a diverse and large college with many talented and praised instruc- tors. Dr. Sidney Homan and Dr. Mi- chael Radelet were two such professors praised by their students for their many successes. Dr. Sidney Homan, an English pro- fessor specializing in Shakespeare, has been teaching for 21 years; 14 years at UF. Homan has combined teaching and the theater. Homan said the basic principle of his " religion " involved see- ing the world as a stage. For him, litera- ture bound together English and the- ater. " For me, " he said, " literature reading it, teaching it, writing about it is the most practical and wholesome commodity we produce; and since Shakespeare is the tops, I decided to fashion myself as a " Shakespearean " . " Homan has had many achievements. He wrote a prize winning book on Sam- uel Becket that came out of a prison tour of his play Waiting for Godot; and taught Shakespeare at Jilin University in the People ' s Republic of China. Ho- man views his most successful achieve- ment differently. Homan said his only real achievement " comes at those mo- ments when I have the sense that I am a good husband and father, and, by ex- tention, a good member of this commu- nity. " Some of Homan ' s students seemed to think his talented teaching was still another achievement. Jerry Dyess, 4JM, said, " out of all my years at UF, Sid Homan is one of the finest teachers I have ever had. " Dr. Michael Radelet taught many different subjects. He taught sociology, criminal justice, psychiatry, and health- family medicine and medical ethics in the Medical department. Radelet concentrates much of his time and concern on justice issues. He said he selected to teach sociology and medical ethics, because of " strong con- cerns about injustice and inequalities in our society and a belief that most stu- dents want to do something about these problems. " Radelet has also worked with several men on death row and their families during his extensive research on capital punishment in the last years. Radelet takes pride in his work in jus- tice and in teaching. " I am very fortu- nate to have perseverence, and an abili- ty to make a committment and feel some compassion for those whom our society values least, " he said. Radelet had praise and respect as an instructor and a human bei ng. Jodi Dorn, 3FA, said Dr. Radelet was " by far one of my best professors. He has a great person- ality and he ' s an excellent teacher. " Liberal Arts and Sciences continued to manage undergraduates and the many upperclassmen within the many schools with dedication and efficiency. The school maintained the academic advisement center for students, provid- ing academic advisement to all stu- dents.

Residency programs were offered for physicians after their graduation. The Ph.D. degree in medical sci- ences was available with many areas of specializa- tion. The Shand ' s Hospital part of the J. Hillis Miller Health Science center com- plex was used as the teach- ing hospital for the college of medicine. Also, the col- lege of medicine was respon- sible for patient care, teach- ing, and research at the Veterans Administration Hospital, which is located next to JHMHSC. One of the many dedicat- ed staff members in the col- lege of medicine is Dr. An- nette Pashayan of Anesthesiology, who has taught at UF for four years. She has done a lot of re- search into anesthesiology, especially in laser surgery. Dr. Paschayan had her resi- dency and fellowship train- ing at the University of Florida after medical school at Dowman Gray School of Medicine in North Caroli- na. The anesthesiology de- partment has one of the highest reputations and is known throughout the na- tion, according to Dr. Pa- shayan. She said the depart- ment is " very supportive " and helps with research and training.

It was a dynamic interactive pro- cess to promote, maintain, prevent and treat human responses to illness throughout the lifespan. " Healthy peo- ple is the ultimate goal, " said Marsha Skinner, an assistant professor at the College of nursing " Nursing is the car- ing and helping arm of that maintain- able health. " The undergraduate had opportunities for supervised observation and practice in selected phases of health care. The student in the graduate program was provided with professional experience in many clinical settings, including hos- pitals, community health clinics, prima- ry service institutions and homes. Nurs- ing courses included extensive classroom activities, correlated with su- pervised observation and practice in primary, secondary, tertiary, restor- ative and continuing care settings. The doctoral program was the only one in the state and it prepared nurse scholars and researchers to be expert clinicians, teachers and administrators. Clearly, the nursing program was not only nota- ble but rigorous. As an assistant professor for the col- lege, Marsha Skinner was responsible for many aspects of the rigorous course work. She was not only in charge of the Learning Lab but also the Individual- ized Learning Center (ILC). In the Learning Lab, commonly called the skills lab, undergrads prac- ticed with real equipment on " dum- mies, " essentially providing students with the hands on experience needed to perform adequately in the field. The ILC was used for testing students both on practical applications and skills, and textbook material. — Carmen Fowler 1) These two nursing students proudly stand next to the display they just finished setting up. 2) The primary goal of nursing is to help keep people healthy.

The college of pharmacy offered a four year professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree and a three year program for a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree. Both de- grees were designed to provide a scien- tific and cultural background required for a successful practice in pharmacy. The college also stressed research and innovations. Many of the college ' s researcher ' s worked in new and helpful directions. Ralph Dawson, an assistant professor of pharmadynamics, studied amino acids and their role in brain ag- ing. Margaret James, also an assistant professor in medicinal chemistry, worked with crustaceans in attempts to metabolize and remove antibiotic drugs from its systems, thus making the sea- food safe for humans to ingest. The col- lege made innovative strides in its pur- chase of the $400,000 GC-LC-MS, the first gas and liquid chromatograph mass spetrometer in the health science center. The college offered information through the hosting of an open house which welcomed more than 100 stu- dents, interested in pharmacy, and their parents. The open house gave interested students a chance to find out about pore-pharmacy requirements, profes- sional curricula, admission require- ments, financial aid, career opportuni- ties, and student life within the college. — Melissa Kroll 98 Pharmaey And Innovation Successfully I) Photo eourtesy eollege of pharmaey 2) Photo courtesy of eollege of pharmaey 1) Dr. Michael McKenzie, assistant dean for student affairs and an associate professor, was honorably ap- pointed to serve on the college ' s distinguished Phar- macy Educator Award Committee for 1986 and 1987. 2) Smaller classes allowed for a better student-teach- er ratio within the college. 3) The college ' s annual career day took pharmacy students out of the classroom and gave them a look at real world opportunities. 3) Photo eourtesy of college of pharmaey Pharmaey 99 Building Bodies And I) A student tests his endurance in a raquetball game. 2) Many of the college of Human Health and Perfor- mance swimmers will compete in the olympics.

Stu- dents of the College of Health and Human Performance are expected to participate in extracurricular activi- ties. They can do so by joining one of the college ' s many clubs such as LEAPS, RCRA, or Sports Club. The college stresses extracurricular activi- ties in order to help students prepare for their careers. The college has many facilities available. Computer labs for example, house 8-10 computers under an in- structor ' s watch. The college sponsored many events for their students. Career Expo and College day were two such events. The department of recreation, parks and tourism put together the career expo, which invited city and county recrea- tion departments, military bases, and hospitals to explain their programs and recruit students. College day was hosted by the college council who hon- ored department teachers of the year, sold t-shirts and handed out literature to try to interest new students in the college. — Tammy Lundell Health And Human Performanee 101 Keeping Animals Healthy I) A.

Lauredo Veterinary Medieine The college of veterinary medicine was the newest of the six colleges mak- ing up the J. Hillis Miller Health Sci- ence Center. The college of veterinary medicine established five basic goals for students to meet. These goals in- cluded educating and training student veterinarians for the specific needs of Florida, performing research on sub- tropical animal diseases, and provid- ing an active referral and extension program designed specifically for the veterinary medical profession. The veterinarian curriculum con- sisted of an eight semester program. The first five semesters offered stu- dents the basics of medical sciences and also introduced students to physi- cal diagnosis, radiology, and clinical problems. There were three phases in the veterinary medical curriculum. Students studied normal animals in Phase I, the disease process and thera- py in Phase II, and clinical applica- tions in Phase III. The students last three semesters were spent gaining ex- perience through clerkships in clinical areas. The college of veterinary medicines main concern was the health of all members of the animal kingdom. Through unlimited opportunity in medicine, the college offered students the chance to directly affect the con- cern. — Tammy Lundell 2) A.

Furthurmore, the University was elected to the Association of Amer- ican Universities in July of 1985. President Criser ' s work at UF has been valuable in many ways, including his involvement with students. His fa- vorite aspect of this all consuming job however, is still the " interaction with students in an informal setting. " The students are part of what Criser likes best about UF. " The quality of the fac- ulty, the students, and the staff is what higher education is all about, " he said. — Melissa Kroll 1) As a student, Marshall Criser was involved in many UF activities, one of which was the UF year- book, then called the Seminole. Criser was the Busi- ness Manager. 2) Today, Marshall Criser takes charge of UF as its eighth president. 104 Spotlight All Gators I) Information Services 1) Criser ' s goal to make OF the best it can be and the best in Florida is a constant one.

Connor Over 5,000 Gators belong to the Greek community of nineteen sororities and 33 fraternities. Greek life provided the opportunity for community involvement, campus club and organization par- ticipation and many fun and exciting social events. Greek life supplied the campus with a variety of activities ranging from Slugfest, Twister and Anchor Splash, to field days, marathon races and softball tournaments. Fraternity and sorority chapters have earned honors, national and local awards and have brought the campus recognition of a highly active Greek system. By officially organizing Little Sister programs and taking a stand on drinking laws, Gator Greeks hoped to set an example for other schools in the nation. Houses planned fund raisers to support dozens of charities such as Amer- ican Heart Association, Muscular Dystrophy, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Gainesville. While the houses expressed what they can do as a whole, their individual members portrayed what the Greek experience had done for member ' s personal and academic growth. As members of various houses gained leadership and organizational skills, they put them to work for the university. The Student Body President, Pamela Bingham of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Student Body Vice- President, Russ Bergin of Pi Kappa Alpha were among the many Greeks who offered their time and talents to the school. Greeks had strong leadership in their Panhellenic President, Lisa Sotir of Kappa Delta and IFC President, Paul Faver of Pi Lambda Phi; both of whom were designated as outstanding graduating seniors. Homecoming activity and the parade in general were made possible through the joint efforts of Greeks in the form of floats, colorful banners and as actresses and actors in the annual Gator Growl production. Intramural action included fraternity, sorority and little sister teams in sports such as tennis, volleyball, flag football, and softball. Amidst their harried schedules the Greeks also found time for academic acceleration as competition be- tween houses for the top spots in grade point averages increased. Social life abounded with festivities like happy hours, socials, dances, formals, weekend retreats and road trips to Daytona Beach, Atlanta, and the Itchnetucknee River. Alumnae events were well received and attended as were special Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas celebrations and Parents ' weekends. — Holley Wilson Greeks 107 1 3) Flash Foto Top Row, L to R: Karen Gurley, Jennifer Dilcheek, Kim Wilson, Diane Kelley, Beth Moss, Nancy Whitmer, Nancy Penny, Maureen Smith, Kim McGurk, Lisa Ehlers, Laura Winslow, Sydney Debbie Daton, Tammy Patterson, Stephanie Fuhs, Kim Ragland, Monica Matthews, Lee Ann Retinger, Lynn Finora, Susan Jordan, Emily Hooper, Dana Ray, Karen Bonifosi, Shelly Vozzola.

Cometz 174 Basketball The Best Of Times The 1986-87 season saw the culmination of years of hard work head Basketball Coach Norm Sloan had put into rebuilding a basketball program that Gator fans could be proud of. Returning from their most successful season, which included a post-season final-four appearance at the NIT championships in New York, the Gators started the ' 86- ' 87 season with high hopes. The Gators had reason to be optimistic, they returned with 93 percent of their scoring and 88 percent of their rebounding talent from last year. Also the addition of top recruit 7.1 ft. Dwayne Schintzuis, in the position of center, gave them the extra edge on the inside they had previously lacked. For the first time since Coach Norm Sloan returned to Florida, six years ago, he had opponents casting a wary glance at the Gators when preparing to face them. Another welcomed change from years past was the increase in fan support, which was evident by games repeatedly being sold out, and crowds setting new O ' Connell center records. The new attention from the media and the strong fan support brought out the best in the Gators, as they were repeatedly named in the top 20 polls and continually near the top of the SEC throughout the season. If the ' 86-87 season was any indication of the future of basketball at the University of Florida it will nitely continue to be the best of times. — Donna Bartee ) E. E. Cornetz 3) E.

At the be of Coach Lynn Blevin ' s 6th season he said, " We be a yd and inexperienced team, but . . . we will be a team to be reckoned with.

The team opened the year at the LSU Invitational with a 5th place finish. Freshman Dudley Hart came in an amazing 3rd place in only his first college match. The next four tournaments were marked with the exceptional play of both Dudley Hart and Steve Lamontagne. The Gator ' s had an impressive showing in the Tenth Annual Gator Invitational.

With the youngest squad Weaver has coached in three years, the new recruits added not only citement, but also energy to the Lady Gator winning tradition. comer Janice Kerr enthralled crowds with her dynamic floor mances. " Kerr is probably one of the best gymnasts we ' ve had at Florida, " commented Weaver. We also saw exciting performances from man Amy Beispiel and Marni Rager on bars and vault. Karen Brennalt and Sharron Brown were also strong performers on the vault. Mindy Strombler rounded out the freshman Lady Gator lineup. Yet as the season progressed the team veterans once again proved that experience gives the winning edge. Senior Kim Hillner, juniors Anita Botnen and Tammy Smith and sophomore Melissa Miller led in the all-around effort in the 86-87 season. " These performers are solid, " noted Weaver. Miller and Smith had a strong vaulting season, despite Smith ' s pre-season knee surgery. Kim Hillner, along with Anita nen and Melissa Miller, led the way on the uneven bars, an event the gymnasts worked hard to improve on this year. The balance beam, a tional strong suit for Florida, was no different this year with Botnen head- ing the list of top beam performers.

The concern of finding a job led to the creation of the Career Resource Center around 1953, when it served as a placement office. This year the Center offered a variety of free services. Students met with any one of six advisors, attended a series of Career Education Mini-Sessions, utilized a computerized career planning program or browsed through a library containing literature on about 2,500 companies. The Center also hosted many Career Days each year, along with Career Expo in the Fall and Spring. The ultimate goal, of course, was to provide the student with a job that would develop into a lucrative career. Over 600 employers visited campus each year, and over 12,000 on-campus interviews were scheduled. " We get, on the average, 500-600 job openings per week throughout the year, " said Peter Aylward, Associate Director of the Career Resource Center.

Listed below are two of the questions and some of the most interesting responses to each. Graduation came much sooner than most seniors Time ran short and many projects and plans were quickly completed. Still, the idea of being out of school and on their own was bewildering. When asked if fearful or anxious about graduating, some seniors replied: Part of me wants to stay in college forever, and part of me wants to be done with the tests and get on with my life. Shari Beth Koenig — Business Anxious, all the men are too young. I feel like their mother. Michelle Wilcox — Engineering Both. I ' m anxious about my future life but afraid of the responsiblities and pressure of being on my own. Kathleen Copeland — Education Yes. I ' m scared I ' ll trip going onto the stage. Clea Macurdy — Liberal Arts and Sciences No! Graduation is the beginning of a new school, the school of life. Lizette Borreno Agriculture Yes and no. I ' m glad that the studying is over and I do feel its time to move on, but at the same time, uncertainty about the unknown is always a little unsettling. Andy Singer Business No, I am looking forward to financial independence and crediblity as a professional. Students are not respected. Anne Morely Accounting Anxious. I ' ve worked and worked hard for graduation day to arrive. I ' m ready to get " out there " and show the world what I can do. Connie Strickland — Marketing As happened every year, seniors graduated and the following semester UF to thousands of new students. These newcomers had the same experi- ences to look forward to and the same traditions to that the seniors had just finished. If anyone could have passed on advise or hints to make it here, seniors did. Are there any suggestions for those still enrolled at UF you would like to pass on? Get involved! Do as much as possible because there is so much oppor- tunity, it is a shame to waste it. Jeanne Machal Journalism I) E. Cometz 2) E. Comet, 3) W. Olson 7) J. Webster Study hard and party harder! Jonathan Kreider Business Do everything you can and don ' t let a day go by idle. Kevin Dunleavy Finance Do the best you can, but enjoy yourself at the same time because it doesn ' t get any better than this after graduation. Christopher Risi — Business Don ' t wait until year senior year to do all the things you wanted to do in college. There ' s never enough time, so start early. Pat Dauer — Advertising Suggestion: keep going no matter how much you want to quit. Mary Callahan Business Make the best of it. There are a few second chances. Richard Mudgett — Electrical Engineering. 5) E. Comet, 6) E. Cometz Seniors 282 Organizations It is not surprising to find that with over 35,000 students at UF, there are more than 300 officially recognized organizations. These organizations provided for social, academic, philanthropic, and athletic interaction between many students of various backgrounds. Not only did these societies present new ideas and alternative views to their members, many performed valuable service on projects to help the community. These organizations also provided opportunities for students to practice and develop their leadership skills. Organizations were based on many different interests, such as foreign languages, religions, politics, sports, hobbies, cultures, music, and special philanthropies. With this variety of organizations, there was something for everyone. — Cindy Kramer I) J. Webster Organizations 283 tower staff I) J. Webster 2) A. Lauredo We did it again! The 1987 Tower staff successfully continued the tradition. This is the fifth edition of UF ' s yearbook. Without the staff ' s devotion and determination the book would not have been possible. The past year, we had an easier time on our setions w e changed the delivery time back to August. Also, we had the help of the an Apple computer for writing copy. Just ask our editor-in-chief, who ' s well known for shouting obscenities at the printer. In addition, we extended our marketing techniques by order forms and coupons in the Alligator and the Florida Leader. As you look at our pages think about all the time and energy the staff contributed to workshops, meetings, and office hours to do what no one else wanted to do yeeaah, that ' s it, you ' d be crazy too!!! — Cindy Kramer 284 Tower Yearbook 3) R.

At chapter conferences and field trips, members talked to professionals face to face. Here they found encouragement, academic advice, and tips for success. ASCE members put their knowledge to the test — the strength test, when they built cement canoes and cylinders in competitions with other college chapters. Members participated in surveying contests and volleyball as well. The ASCE helped other engineering students too, by giving away coffee and doughnuts, and helping out in the computer room. — Cyndi Neto 288 ODK ASCE Accent Provides Educational In their efforts to enhance the experience of the student body, Accent brought a variety of speakers to These speakers ranged from politicians to comedians.

Throughout the year, the society provided members with academic counseling and career planning, regular chemistry review sessions, and provided private tutors. — Cyndi Neto 2) J. Webster COAR Educates The Public According to FBI estimates, one out of every three women would be sexually and one in ten would be raped at some time during her lifetime. These tragic statistics prompted a group of students to develop COAR, Campus Organized Against Rape, in 1982. After just five years, sixty men and women, who felt that the only way to combat the problem of rape was by educating the public, supported COAR. Members trained to speak on sexual assault made students in residence halls, sororities and fraternities aware of the misconceptions concerning rape, as well as some of the ways to prevent it. COAR expanded its reach on campus through SAGA. the Sexual Awareness Greek Association, which focused on educating Greeks. COAR Week, held annually, featured seminars dealing with sex roles and nonverbal communication, a revue of sexual issues performed by the Hippodrome Gait Players, and " Casting Shadows " , a movie filmed and produced entirely on campus. — Cyndi Neto Students To Bust MS Students against Multiple Sclerosis was a student run organization that enthusiasm and entertainment while educating and unifying the public to help bust MS.

The only requirement is one must have 12 hours and have a 2.0 GPA. — Heidi Schmidt 1) M. Potter Surf Club 2) S. Pardell The Gator Surf Club was an organization which liked to feel the sand between its toes and hear the waves dash on the jetties. Membership did not require the ability to surf, just the ability to have fun in the sun. Meetings occurred on Thursday nights in the Orange and Brew and offered social events to allow students to meet other students with similar beachy interests (particularly surfing.) They also planned for such activities as carwashes, parties, and group trips during meetings. Perhaps the most exciting part of membership was the travel. This past year the Surf Club went to surf contests in the Bahamas, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, while sponsoring their own surfing contests at St. Augustine. — Margaret S. Potter Cicerones Surf Club 293 NSSLHA Speak To Each Other The National Student Speech Language and Hearing (NSSLHA), worked in coordination with the university ' s Speech and Hearing Clinic.

Lauredo With a membership of drinkers and non-drinkers, BACCHUS promoted alcohol awareness and responsible alcohol use. They strived to educate themselves, their friends, and their community about alcohol abuse and the consequences of alcohol use. Besides education, BACCHUS also aided individuals with decisions concerning the use or nonuse of alcohol and helped those individuals become comfortable with their decisions. The BACCHUS philosophy stated drinking should not be the focus of social activities, peer pressure to drink should not be encouraged, one should recognize anothers right to drink or not to drink, and the laws governing one ' s right to drink should be followed. BACCHUS encouraged this philosophy in their meetings and presented it to the public by advertising ' A Safe Break ' 87 ' program with booths at the Reitz Union. The ' Safe Break ' required consenting students to sign a form stating they would not drink and drive. The group gave out buttons to those who participated. — Margaret S. Potter IHRA BACCHUS 295 engineers Politicians Too The Benton Engineering Council (BEC) was the only coordinating legislative body for the students within the College of Engineering.

Cofer AIAA Takes First Place 3) J. Webster The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics supplied many activities and projects to its members. Almost every other Wednesday, professionals from various companies and military bases in aerospace engineering came to the AIAA meetings with presentations displaying the latest technology and research in the field. The society also had many parties throughout the year, ranging from beginning of the semester parties, to a Halloween party, to end of the semester parties, to a superbowl party. Members also took several plant trips to such companies as Prat Whitney in West Palm Beach, Calspan in Tennessee, and Gulfstream in Savannah, GA. Members also took a trip to Cecil Naval Air Station just south of Jacksonville. They were able to see maintenance and repair of the Navy ' s newest fighter and attack aircraft. For the third year in a row, the AIAA won 1st place at the Annual Engineer ' s Fair held in the O ' Dome. No other society has accomplished t hat feat since the inception of the fair 25 years ago. Possibly the most anticipated event of the year, however, was the Southeast Regional Conference held in Atlanta this year. A good time was had by all and it was a chance to meet professionals from several major companies as well as to meet other students from around the southeast and to learn about current research in the field of aerospace engineering by listening to the many technical papers presented. — John Webster Golden Key Golden Key National Honor Society its non-profit honors on the university campus in 1979.

For the 10 years that followed, the University of Florida did not have a yearbook. The events of those years are lost to history. In 1983 a yearbook was again established, now called the Tower, thanks largely to over a year of work by Kerry Johnson and his staff. The continuation of the Tower since then has been possible through those staffers who returned year after year to share the knowledge learned from working on the previous years book. After a tenuous 5 year existence we have now finished the fifth edition of the Tower. This can be considered an important milemarker for the Tower staff when one considers the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that have been encountered and overcome throughout the last 5 years. Having survived the test of time for 5 years, I believe it is safe to say that the Tower Yearbook has achieved one of its goals in becoming a permanent tradition on the University of Florida campus. However, we still have a long way to go to become a well established part of every students life. The production of this year ' s book was possible only through the hard work and extreme dedication of the staff. In particular, the section editors and a few staff members from each section who seemed to live in the yearbook office for the better part of the last year, and the photographers who lived in the darkroom. — John Webster I would like to give a special thanks to the following staffers: Amy Muller — " I hate Peanut Butter " Darlene Vanderbush — " Hi!
