According to Dr. Fred Heath, dean of Library Services, the catalog system will be updated to computer terminals. in tne classroom, in iaministmnqn, on the playing field, and around campus, changes were ma4 in the process througJiob l e ( ws the yesi With limited space for growth, a uni- versity of 5,000 plus can only expand so far until the growth must happen within. In that process of filling the gaps there are additions and adjustments, along with renovations and reorganizations to com- plete the cycle of modification and create a system that can make a working difference. The gaps that are filled come in as many different forms as the things that fill them. For a 26-yeai-old blind student it took the help of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and the Lions Club to fulfill his need. The organizations sent Max McKinney through Leader Dog School where he obtained his constant companion Weston. With the help PHOTOGRAPHER EDWARD THOMAS completed his photo-design with two students emerging from the Floyd Science Building stairwell. Students find that the stairs may be great for exercise but are horri- ble for students who are late for class. of his German shepherd, Max has been able partially to overcome his handicap. Bringing an international plea a little closer to home was the hope of the locally- sponsored record, " We Are The Shoals. " Several university faculty and students, in- cluding Cissy Ashley (the reigning Miss CINA) sang on the record. Proceeds went to USA for Africa and to the local " Meals on Wheels " program for feeding the needy in the Shoals area. Also in the spotlight were two universi- ty students, Gina Magazzu and Kevin Ham- mond, as they lessened the gap between North Alabama and Hollywood. The pair worked as extras in the major motion pic- ture " Space Camp " that filmed many FOR A CHANGE of pace Dr. John Thompson took a break from the classroom to enjoy the April weather. Lucky for the class, they were invited to attend if they could overcome the spring distractions. The class Edward Thomas scenes at the Space and Rocket Center iq Huntsville. The Student Activities Board was ad vertising for talent when they came up witl] " Nightclub Night " in the Student Buildinc Since the building has been remodeled, ihi snack bar (which was once known as Fri- day ' s) has been revamped into the popular " Pub-ln-The-Sub. " It is now equipped with a new television and several additions to the menu. Renovation was a popular concern on campus with the completion of Project Courtview. It took four years to complete the work on the three-story antebellum mansion. The historic building now houses the university Placement Center, Gniversity (cent, on page 5) fulfilled their promise and were very studious in their notetaking. Dr. Thompson is an associate professor of English. CHEERING THE HOME TEAM on as they play the semifinals of the Division II Mational Championship, the crowd was overwhelmed at the 34-0 victory. The team went on to the finals and ended up first runner- up in the NCAA. Eric Ross HAVING AN AFRICAN LION as a mascot means keeping Leo happy and healthy. Director of Universi- ty Events Joe Wallace, who acts as the lion ' s trainer, assists the veterinarians as they give slightly sedat- ed Leo his yearly physical. PREPARING FOR the homecoming festivities, resi- dents of Rice Hall, Karen Weems and Robyn Fohner, put the finishing touches on their yard decoration. Introduction 3 O ' NEAL HALL, home of the commuter lounge, is a place where students can relax and socialize between classes. While Claudia Wear and Jamie Thigpen en- gage in a conversation, Edward Thomas finds time to relax. BECAUSE THE CAMPOS has its share of hills, stu- dents find that climbing stairs is something that can- not be avoided. Mike Clay DURING PRE-REGISTRATION Chris Chandler re- ceives assistance with his schedule from Carolyn Austin and Shirley Bailey. For most students the new system of registration was less time consuming. o • • • (cont. from page 2) Events, and Alumni and Governmental Af- fairs. Powers Hall received similar attention. The dormitory once housed the football team but now its four wings are divided among the four National Panhellenic Coun- cil sororities. Twelve members of each so- rority (Phi Mu, Alpha Delta Pi, Zeta Tau Alpha and Alpha Gamma Delta) make Pow- ers a home during the regular term. But even more space was made of use; 268 spaces as a matter of fact. When the old Appleby Elementary School burned, the university purchased the property with the students in mind. A new parking lot was created to make parking a problem of the past. Along with the extra spaces, four new tennis courts were added to the facility. Highway 157 took a name change in order to honor the university when it be- came the University of North Alabama Highway. The road is located between Flor- ence and Birmingham. The campus bookstore has not had a change of name but it has changed owners. The main reason for the Barnes Noble takeover was the enhancement of services provided for the faculty, staff and students by the bookstore. The bookstore, which is located on the ground floor of the Student Union Building, now offers much more than text books and school supplies. For some students, school supplies were the easiest thing to find. College fresh- men were usually the first to get lost but they were getting some special attention to make the adjustment into college life as painless as possible. SOAR (Summer Orien- tation and Advanced Registration), a pro- gram to aid incoming freshmen in becom- ing familiar with the university, was ex- panded to include counseling beyond the original two-day program. CAP, the College Achievement Program for freshmen, was a continuation of the academic and student life counseling provided by SOAR counsel- ors throughout the first semester. A new major was added to the sched- ule when the Alabama Commission on Higher Education approved the proposal of a public relations degree program. The political science department also made progress with the addition of PS 425. THE CHEERLEADERS race through the tunnel lead- with the buyer ' s name attached.

The soror- ity sold tickets for the balloons and set them free BobCi found the balloon and returned the attached card from the farthest distance was the winner. The indi- vidual who bought the ticket and the person who found the winning balloon both received $50. The course, " Middle East Past and Pre- sent, " was taught jointly by a political sci- entist and a historian. Several academic and administrative personnel changes took place in various departments on campus. The changes came as a part of a " Cam paign for Excellence " that Dr. Eugene Jabker, dean of Faculty and Instruction, started after coming to the university last year. Among the changes was the addition of a full-time director of Continuing Educa- tion. The department was previously the responsibility of the Dean of Arts and Sci- ences. Filling the position as director was Bill Matthews. In the shift of positions in the School of Education, Dr. Azalia Francis was named acting dean of the school, pending a nation- wide search to find a permanent dean. Dr. Stanley Beans, whom Francis re- placed, returned to a tenured teaching posi- tion. Sue Wilson was another new member of the administration, filling the registrar position. Wilson began working on a new (cent, on page 7) BAND MEMBER Duke Cowan practices on the steps of Rogers Hall for the band ' s spring concert.

Jayne Anne Miller PHOTOGRAPHER BOB CRISP was a little late meet- ing his wife, SueBet, for a cinema society movie at the Visual Arts Building. When he did arrive he no- ticed how bright the campus lights were. So, camera ready on tripod, he shot himself apologizing for his tardiness. Filling the Gaps 1 1 I n I I iiiiiii [cont. from page 5) registration process from the first day of her employment on October 1. Along with the new registration sys- tem, a student advisory system was set up to aid student in selecting courses. The ad- [visory system provided a benefit that stu- |dents have not had in the past. I Other things were offered to the stu- dents that had not been there before. In the Art Department, the senior exhi- bitions became more publicized than be- Fore. The new acting head of the depart- ment. Dr. Elizabeth Walter, saw to that. In the Speech, Communication and Theatre department, assistant professor of theatre Jim David took a troupe of actors and technicians to Hartselle, Alabama to perform " Romeo and Juliet. " The experi- ence not only gave the students a chance to :ake the show on the road but it offered a " irst glimpse of Shakespeare to a coliseum ■ull of grade school children. Located in Florence, with the tri-cities Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, and Tuscumbia) lust across the river, the university often secame a point of interest in the Shoals area. The Values Colloquium was open to :he public and involved a great deal of com- Tiunity participation. The theme of the col- oquium was " Self and Others in the Ameri- FHE RAINY ACJTCIMN of Nortfi Alabama often nakes the sfiort walk from one class to another an ;nlightening experience in learning to dress for he veather. an Society in the 1980s. " Author of the best-selling book, " The Culture of Narcissism, " Christopher Lasch spoke on " The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Ex- pectations. " While several members of the faculty and a few students joined panels for differ- ent topics of discussion, area businessmen joined the ranks to round out these discus- sions. Actor Will Stutts brought Mark Twain to life in the thought-provoking pan- el, " Huckleberry Finn: Mark Twain ' s Young Man of Integrity. " Later in the semester, Drs. Clark Gregg and Gary Swinger addressed a standing- room-only crowd in Flowers Hall. The AIDS Symposium was set up to better inform the college and community about the disease. The community was working with the university in many ways and President Rob- ert M. Guillot released this statement: " The University of North Alabama is one of the 12 largest employers in the Shoals area and has a total economic impact of $79 mil- lion. " The gaps were being filled on all scales by individuals and organizations alike. The university was proving that it could contin- ue to grow within its own boundaries. TEARING DOWN the goal post seemed the thing to do after the football team defeated Bloomsburg Uni- versity. The win sent the team to Texas to play in the NCAA Division II finals. ANITA WALLACE finds the library just right for her studying. When Collier Library was remodeled last year several new study areas were added to the facili- ty. Introduction 7 University Life If they weren ' t ready for Fall Fling, maybe they were into Shakespeare— but there was always a way to kill some time. Students were entertaining students from Step Sing to SOAR. And the Pub-in-the-Sub was open for " Nightclub Nite.

STEP-SING is a popular competition of various campus or- ganizations. Student spend much of their spare time prepar- ing their entries. Rice Hall ' s " Tribute to Musicals " was the winning entry in the residence hall category. MARIEBELLE VILLALOBOS. Cathy McKelvey. and Kim Dear- mond find that a cool spring afternoon of baseball with blankets and sunglasses is a good way to unwind after a day filled with classes and study. Student Life 9 men dressing in drag, uncontrollable cravings for Big Macs and coeds spinning around baseball bats are all symptoms of a weeklong epidemic by Brenda Grisham It tantalizes our senses. The sound of bluegrass mu- sic, the sight of brilliant col- ors chalked on sidewalks, the smell of Big Macs, the taste of a picnic lunch, the feeling of a warm, gentle breeze . . . spring is in the air and Spring Fling is in our midst. Spring Fling was co- sponsored by McDonald ' s and Miller High Life. Partici- pants in competitions and re- lays wore official Spring Fling T-shirts, furnished by the co-sponsors. Leo the Lion held the honor of kicking off Spring Fling as he celebrated his thirteenth birthday on an April Monday morning. Approximately 500 chil- dren came from all over the area to wish Leo the best and TUESDAY NIGHT at the amphith- eater. Claudia Wear(nominated by Phi Mu) was given the honor of Spring Fling Queen. " I was so sur- eat devil ' s food cakes and or- ange punch, supplied by McDonald ' s and served by Golden Girls and Ambassa- dors. There ' s no better ex- cuse for indulging in two Big Macs in less than six min- utes than for the good of your fellow fraternity broth- ers or sorority sisters in the " Big Mac Attack " eating contest. Lora Lester gulped down a couple of hambur- gers in an astounding five minutes and se ven seconds, swallowing first place for Zeta Tau Alpha. David Haw- kins did the same for Sigma Chi, but four seconds faster. Chalking up points for Rivers Hall was Steve Bur- roughs, who won first place in the sidewalk chalk art con- prised, " Wear said.

His masterpiece was a portrait of a girl whose mirrored sunglasses reflect- ed palm trees on a sandy beach. Kevin Hammond, possi- bly better known as " Edna, " represented Alpha Tau Ome- ga in the " Ugly Walk. " He she dazzled the judges, capturing first prize. The amphitheatre was the spot for entertainment on Tuesday night of the Spring Fling. " Southwind, " a local country gospel band made up of three students, Jeff, Chris, and Greg Black, and a fourth member, Royce Bailey, held a concert after a fun-filled day.

Staggering in with firs place in the Dizzie Izzie rela; were Rice Hall and Kappi Sigma. This required si; team members to run thirt] (cont. on page 12 (cont. from page 10) yards, place a bat to their foreheads with the other end to the ground, and run around it six times. This was Sigma Chi ' s Chris Cobb ' s fa- vorite relay. " We were so far be- hind, " Cobbs said. " I fell down three times. When I got up, I went to the wrong line. When I got back I felt so dis- oriented. " That was just what ev- eryone needed to prepare themselves for " Football: Jax State Style. " A blind- folded quarterback might consider himself handi- capped, but the Geography Club and the Physical Educa- tion Men had no problem as they outscored everyone in this unique sport. Alpha Gamma Delta and Rivers Hall would prob- ably think tossing an egg is easier than tossing a football Bob Crisp any day. They proved their hidden talents with first place in the Egg Toss. Another favorite was the Amoeba Race. Four blindfolded team members formed the " cell wall " with clasped hands. Surrounding this wall were thirty-four el- bowtoelbow other team members forming the " cell nucleus. " On the signal " amoeba " they verbally guided their cell wall in the obstacle course. Inching their way to a ten point victo- ry were the Geography Club and Alpha Tau Omega. On all fours and on each other, Zeta Tau Alpha and Al- pha Phi Alpha proved to have balance, coordination, and sisterly brotherly coop- eration as they topped all other groups in the People Pyramid. Loosening up after four WEARY, WORN-OUT AND WET, Lisa Rogers does her part for Zeta Tau Alpha in the Water Relay. MAKING THEIR MARKS on the sidewalk In front of the Student Union Building were twenty organi- zations in the sidewalk chalk art contest. Tripp Storm placed second for Alpha Tau Omega. " It was very Impromptu, " Storm said. " I just picked up my chalk and went at it. " days of flinging, students found themselves dancing in Flowers Hall at the Purple Party, featuring Celebrity Ball. The Alpha Sweethearts and the Football Fraternity both placed first in the dance contest. The Air Band competi- tion consisted of contestants imitating their favorite bands. The Alpha Sweethearts cap- tured first place with " Glamor- ous Life. " The judges pon- dered over Rice Hall ' s " Pointer Sisters, " but decided to give them second place. The Football Fraternity outshined all other men with " Ernie and the Cripples, " while Alpha Tau Omega came in second with " Bee- thoven ' s Fifth. " As the festivities were dy- ing down, the Amphitheater hosted a Bluegrass Festival open to the entire communi- Bob Ci ty. People brought their lawn chairs, blankets, and sack- lunches and sat back to en- joy bluegrass bands, featur- ing the " Foster Family Strincj Band. " The Football Fraternitj placed first overall in thr men ' s division. Alpha Tan Omega was second, Sigme Chi third, and Alpha Phi Al pha fourth. Overall, in the women ' s division, the Alpha Sweet- hearts placed first. Rice Hall was not far behind in second place. The Geography Club was third with Alpha Gamma Delta trailing in at fourth place. Bob Glenn, Director of Student Activities, was more than satisfied with the week ' s events. " It went very well, " he said. " We had a large attendance. 1 felt very positive about the whole week. " THE FIJI ' S pull their way into the ■Hig-of-War finals. They placed sec- ond to ATO in the final competition during half-time of the Purplen- Gold intra-squad football game at Braly Stadium. In the ladies ' finals the Alpha Sweethearts won in a quick seven seconds over Alpha Gamma Delta. CONNIE BRIDGES devours a juicy hamburger, capturing second place in the " Big Mac Attack " eating con- test, and contributing to Alpha Gamma Delta ' s overall fourth place TWENTY-YEAR OLD junior Cissy Ashley, a commercial music major, enjoys her moment of glory and joy as the new Miss UNA. She received a $1,500 wardrobe from Regency Square Mall and a full tuition schol- arship as well as numerous other prizes and opportunities. MAKING THE MOST of her time in the spotlight is first runnei up Be- linda Sue Lewis. Lewis was one of the seven contesta nts who chose to sing for judges and the audience of almost 1200 In Norton Auditorium. L beautiful tradition Miss UNA Alvssa Ashley loins an impressive list [ lovely and talented women with a history of success by Suzanne Tidwell and Richard Welbom Dver the years the Miss pageant has earned a reputation as more just a typical collegiate jty parade. " Instead of ng of pretty girls posing itty dresses and winning leir smiles alone, the ant has evolved into al intense days of inter- 5, talent competitions performances before :s alone as well as be- jn audience. The once simple proce- has become an extrava- y prepared, planned, eographed and prac- showcase of some of nost beautiful and tal- I girls on campus. Pageant director Joe ice said that the change progress of the pageant le he is very pleased " I feel that much of the sss is owed to the artis- irector of the pageant, rt Allen Holder, " Wal- said. " Every year, he ;s up with better and better ideas and material. " The theme of this year ' s pageant was " Tradition. " The idea was chosen be- cause of the tradition of suc- cess of past students at the Miss Alabama pageant. The University has had four Miss Alabamas in a nine year period. In the twelve- year history of the state pag- eant, a UNA student has placed every year except three. " Tradition " was the title of the opening number of the pageant. The song was writ- ten by Holder and performed by Miss tJNA 1984, Amy Beth Jones, and the nine con- testants. Jones was also featured along with the orchestra in rousing renditions of " The Last Blues Song " and " If I Should Love Again, " which received cheers from the crowd. The orchestra was composed of students under the direction of Edd Jones. The spotlight wasn ' t just on the contestants. Many in the audience came to get a glimpse of the hosts, CBS daytime drama stars Jay Hamner and Susan Pratt. Hamner and Pratt, both from the popular soap opera " The Guiding Light, " were a hit with the audience as they emceed the show and fielded questions from the crowd about the future of their soap characters. Hamner had a more per- sonal interest in the pageant in that his wife, who is the head writer for " The Guiding Light, " is former Miss UNA and Miss Alabama Pam Long. Walking away with not only the title of Miss UNA but winner of the talent com- petitions as well, Alyssa " Cissy " Ashley ' s tears and " thank yous " were sincere and heartfelt. Ashley performed the vocal selection " Kiss Me In the Rain. " The audience re- sponded with applause throughout her perfor- mance. First alternate was Be- linda Sue Lewis, a senior so- cial work major from Hamil- ton, Lewis sang " Woman In The Moon. " Lisa Rogers, a Homewood sophomore who performed a self-choreo- graphed dance to " The Ag- gie song " from the musical " The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, " was second run- nerup. A dazzling rendition of the contemporary gospel song " We Shall Behold Him " won sophomore Dedra East- land from Florence her place as third runner-up. Patti Elaine Cox, a sophomore from Pinson, danced her way to fourth alternate with a jazz routine to " Le Jazz Hot. " The Miss UNA program is considered one of the most important and best run Miss Alabama preliminaries in the state. The extraordinarily high number of winners who go on to shine at higher lev- els is a tradition that prom- ises to continue. GIVING JUDGES one last look be- fore their final decision are contes- tants Terr! Franks, Darnee Case, Lisa Rogers, Pamela McCormack and Cissy Asfiley. The event, held February 21, marked the llth anni- versary of the Miss UNA Pageant. Miss UNA 15 SCOTT ADAY FINDS that a suitcase isn ' t quite enough to move his belongings home for the weekend.

Kaye Bunch, a resident of newly restored Powers Hall, said, " I go home to get money. 1 love the visit with my parents and sisters, yeah, but the only time I do go is when I ' ve run out of money. " Jan Morrison, of Cor- inth, Mississippi and a resi- dent of Rice Hall, had her priorities lined up a little dif- ferently. She said she went home frequently " mainly to see my boyfriend.

Announcers Alan Au- ust and Noel Gartman romised the crowd at Nor- ton Auditorium a " strange and wonderful show, " and the performers didn ' t let the audience down. Weeks of hard work and practice paid off for Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Their pol- ished performance pleased the crowd, impressed the judges, and won the Step Sing Best Overall Trophy. The Zetas ' salute to " Music Through The Ages " included a ' 50s medley and solos by Cissy Ashley on " Ain ' t No Mountain High Enough " and " I ' m Proud To Be An American. " Winning in the resi- dence hall category was the team from Rice Hall, whose " Tribute to Musicals " edged out LaGrange Hall ' s " Tribute To Residence Hall Life. " In the male Greek divi- sion. Kappa Sigma fraterni- ty ' s performance, " Our Fa- vorite Pastime — Lovely La- dies of CINA, " won out over the Pikes ' salute to " Sorority Girls. " Paying homage to " Love, " the Phi Mus tri- umphed over stiff competi- tion in the female Greek cate- gory. Other sororities vying for the trophy were Alpha Gama Delta ( " Spring Break " ) and Alpha Delta Pi ( " Rockin ' Roar " ). Everyone put a lot of hard work into Step Sing, starting long before March. " We started working on ideas for it in the fall, " said ADPi Kellie Little, a partici- pant in Step Sing ' 85. While popular songs comprise most of each per- formance, some original lyr- ics must also be included. Each group is responsible for its own original lyrics and choreography. Traditionally, contes- tants strive to keep the con- tents of their shows under lock and key until the big night. " Each group has its own little secret place to practice, " Little said. " Then, the night before Step Sing, each one is allowed to prac- tice in Norton Auditorium for 30 minutes. And that ' s all the experience you have with the stage. " At least they didn ' t have to build their own stage — in the barn — like Judy and Mickey and the gang.

Billy Crystal helped pull " Saturday Night Live " out of the ratings basement with his " Fernando " routine. " You look mahvelous " became a new byword with college stu- dents and other nightowls. And of course MTV was always there when there was nothing worth watching. The recent availability of 1-95 from Birmingham on FM translator 103 has caused a dramatic resur- gence in radio listening. The Boss was the hot- test act going. Six top ten singles from " Born In the U.S.A. " introduced Spring- steen to a new generation of fans as well as never disap- pointing the old ones. British pop idols Wham! released their second album, " Make It Big, " which did. Phil Collins was still hot, as were Tears for Fears, ' til tues- day, Sade, and a revitalized Tina Turner. Bob Geldof was prob- ably the biggest name in mu- sic. His behind-the-scenes with Band-Aid, GSA for Afri- ca, and Live-Aid made him a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. The hundreds of artists who contributed their time and considerable talents to the sell-out singles " Feed The World Do They Know It ' s Christmas " and " We Are The World " and the all-day concerts in London and Philadelphia will go down in rock history with their ef- forts for famine relief in Afri- ca. There is doubtfully so much as one dorm room or student-occupied apartment without a stereo, tape deck, or at least a radio. Marti Philips, an em- ployee at Record Bar in Re- gency Square Mall, estimat- ed that six or seven out of every ten student customers are university students. Philips added that col- lege students seem to buy mostly top 40 rock and pop albums. When students chose to (and could afford to) go out for entertainment, their first choice was usually the mov- There are thirteen mov- ie theatres in the Quad Cities, including the Martin, which has changed to 99 cent movies at every feature. The Martin is a few weeks behind the first-run movies at the other houses, but stu- dents don ' t mind the delay when it saves them up to three dollars. David Read, manager at the Capri theatre, said that almost half of the customers at the Martin were university students. Read and Jeff Kelsey, an assistant manager at the Hickory Hills Cinemas, esti- mated that on regular week nights, three or four custom- ers out of ten are students. On weekends the figure goes up to maybe five out of ten, most of whom are couples on dates. The number of students is also high on Tuesdays, when ticket prices are up to $2.00 cheaper. According to a market- ing survey done for the Flor- Ala, the campus newspaper, at least 43% of the students questioned saw at least one movie per month, and 17% saw between three and sev- en. " Beverly Hills Cop " be- came The Movie That Would Not Leave, playing some- where (on and off) for almost a year.

AFTER HIS FATHER ' S DEATH an inexperienced Pippin (Mitch Florer) assumes the crown. He dealt with the military aspects of office in receiving Field Mar- shall Tim Day ' s messages from the front. MEMBERS OF THE COMPANY Lisa Rogers. James Hannay and Tonya Russell don exagger- ated military costumes for the song " War is a Science. " Casting a J g the cast of Tippin ' worked magic that lingered with performers and viewers alike by Suzanne Tidwell e ' ve got magic to do just ■ you ; ' ve got miracle plays to »y ; ' ve got hearts to warm rts to perform ... " The opening song of the ephen Schwartz musical ippin " issues an invitation the audience to join the tors in a magical world of Jnance, war, religion, hu- 3r, and intrigue. The Department of eech Communication and heatre spring production tended that same invita- n and took the audience a journey of excitement, icovery, and theatrics at finest. This was accom- shed by director Robert Al- 1 Holder and 60 of the uni- rsity ' s most talented ac- rs, dancers, singers, sicians and technicians. The play concerns the gn of King Charlemagne d his youngest son, Pip- 1, in the Holy Roman Em- eof 780 A. D. The title role Pippin was played by ju- )r Mitch Florer of Gadsden, veteran of university pro- ictions. The portrayal of a ung man eager to try ev- thing, searching for fame d glory and ultimate hap- ess, come naturally to rer. " Pippin is me, " he said. Sut he ' s more than that — •t s everybody. Pippin is the jljrt of every person that kpnts everything that life r s to offer. " Of the production itself, fbrer said that the cast was uality all the way. I am so proud of it. It ' s the best show I ' ve ever done. It was a dream that I saw come true. " The charismatic Lead- ing Player, the narrator who guides Pippin through his ad- ventures, was played by ju- nior Richard Welborn. The Leading Player is a flashy song-and-dance man, and Welborn has had enough experience in both fields to shine in the role. " It was perfect, " said Welborn. " It was a really ex- citing show — ' Pippin ' is pure theatre. " " Just as there is a Pip- pin inside everyone, search- ing, there is a Leading Player inside everyone urging him on, saying ' Go for it! ' " said Florer. King Charlemagne was played by Dan Caine. Junior Tripp Storm appeared as the obnoxious, arrogant son Lewis. Cissy A shley made her theatrical debut as Char- lemagne ' s vampy wife Fas- trada. " It was the first time I ' d ever done anything like that, " Ashley said. " There ' s a lot more involved than I ever would have thought. I learned a lot about perform- ing that can carry over into other areas of my life. " Elizabeth Ragsdale, a veteran of major roles in both university and community productions, was a member of the company of players in " Pippin. " The players stepped in and out of small roles and served as the chorus. " It was much different than other shows I ' ve done, " said Ragsdale. " In the chorus you were a member of a troupe without a specific as- signed role. Robert Allen Holder gave us complete freedom to create a charac- ter on our own. We designed our own costumes, our own make-up, our own personal- ities. " She added that each performance was different for the cast. " We never did the same things the same way twice. We were very free to create and respond within the feelings of the particular scene. That freedom felt great. " Another member of the troupe, Tonya Russell, agreed that the show was dif- ferent from most others she had done. " The finale gave me chills every night, " Russell said. " When we reached out to the audience to draw them into the show, I felt a real closeness, real contact. I ' ve never felt that before. There was a unity, a oneness be- tween every person on the stage and every person in the audience. They weren ' t just blurs in the dark — they were people. It was special. " Russell admitted that she is usually a very nervous person on stage, but with " Pippin " she wasn ' t as scared as usual. " ' Pippin ' felt so good. Everyone had really worked and we were close. We reached out and we touched those people out there, " said Russell. " Pippin " is also differ- ent from many more tradi- tional musicals in the sheer amount of music involved. There are many more songs than a typical " Oklahoma! " — type musical, and almost all the dialogue is under- scored. This was the first pro- duction for transfer student Kevin Robison, an applied pi- ano major who served as re- hearsal pianist and choral di- rector for the show. " It was very difficult music, " Robison said. " It was definitely a high point in my life. " Director Robert Holder felt that the play filled a very important need on campus. " Musical theatre is Ameri- ca ' s contribution to the world ' s stages, " he said. " It is vital for students ' of the theatre to experience and understand the musical. It ' s equally important for mu- sic students to work with an aspect of musical perfor- mance other than bands and recitals. We ' re both perform- ing arts, " he added. " We need to understand and sup- port each other. " As for the specific expe- rience of " Pippin, " Holder said, " With Pippin ' we ' ve proven that we don ' t have to do Rogers and Hammerstein all the time. We took a fanta- sy, an avant-garde allegorical piece of magic and commu- nicated it to an audience. We were successful. " Perhaps an audience member expressed it best when he said " " Pippin ' com- pletely carried me away. I was totally caught up in it — it was magic. " DURING A " 20 minute semester, " SOARees Lance Thompson and Christa Garner work diligently to complete a " class assignment.

" We have made a few changes this year in our pro- gram and the response from our incoming freshmen has been overwhelming, " said Mr. Bob Glenn, Director of Student Activities and SOAR Director. SOAR (Summer Orien- tation and Advance Registra- tion) is a two-day introduc- tion to a college student ' s next four years. The whole concept of SOAR is to prepare a person for the transition from high school to college life. Pre- sumably if a student knows what to expect from the uni- versity and what the univer- sity expects in return, the college experience will be a successful one. " So many students leave the university after their first semester because they just didn ' t know what to expect and had no direction. If we can help them to make it through that first year, odds are that when they do leave the university it will be with a diploma, " said Dr. Daniel Leasure, Dean of Stu- dent Affairs. Cinder the direction of ten upperclassmen SOAR counselors, the SOARees be- gan their 48 hour adventure by checking into the dorm and meeting their temporary roommates.

SOAR counselor David Shelley (right) and his arm-locked team struggle to stand up, a feat requiring trust and teamwork. The first morning ' s schedule consisted of pro- grams such as Counselor ' s Skits, portraying different situations that may occur during a freshman ' s first se- mester, and New Games Mix- ers among the freshmen to build trust and teamwork. Lunch enabled the freshmen to continue to in- teract on a one-to-one basis. The afternoon consisted of small discussion groups which allowed the freshmen to ask questions regarding every aspect of college life. That evening, the SOARees were treated to din- ner theatre in the Great Hall. The SOAR Cabaret, which delighted its audience with singing, and dancing, and skits, also made the fresh- men feel more at home. The Cabaret began with several members of the show doing solo numbers which included such songs as " And I Am Telling You 1 Am Not Going, " and " In My House. " The entire Cabaret then joined for several original songs, all with the SOAR theme in mind, and a special song for the incoming fresh- men by Cissy Ashley, Miss CJNA. After the show and din- ner the festivities were by no means over. The stage was cleared and dinner tables moved to make room for the SOAR Dance. (Cent, on page 26) (Cont. from page 25) The freshmen spent the next two hours dancing and splitting back up into their groups to participate in a lip sync contest which, al- though some freshmen ad- mitted was a little embar- rassing at first, seemed to be enjoyed by all. The second and final day of SOAR was composed of group tours of the campus followed by the Freshman Year Simulation, a game in which the freshmen set their own goals for their first year in school. The simulation included classes, study time, tests, and every once in a while, a student would be given an " emergency card " which may require someone to modify his goals. Fun things like Home- coming, Christmas Break, and Spring Fling were includ- ed in the simulation. After the game the last requirement of the fresh- men ' s day was registration for Fall classes. Under the direction of their counselors and faculty advis ors, students picked their classes, had their IDs made, and prepared for the trip home, having had a two- day tour of college life. They had also gained better under- standing of what their next four years were going to be all about. DEVOTING TWO NIGHTS a week during the summer to the entertain- ment of incoming freshmen, the SOAR cast recruits yet another group of SOARees with the original song " We ' ve Got It All!

Star-crossed Covers the universal appeal of the ill-fated Romeo and Tuliet made the fall production a popular theatre event for campus and community by Terry Pace Shakespeare ' s " star- crossed lovers " relived their tragic romance in a lavish fall production. Director Jim Davis se- lected " Romeo and Juliet " because of its universal ap- peal and his own predilection for the drama. " It ' s a tragic love story about young people, " he ex- plained. " It ' s extremely time- ly, even today. One of the big- gest issues in this country right now is teen suicide. " The cast and crew of " Romeo and Juliet " faced the age-old challenge of bringing a fresh approach to familiar material. " It ' s been done so many times by so many people, " Davis said. " But you can ' t concern yourself with that. You simply have to commu- nicate the story with feeling and excitement . " The production was based on a condensed script that cut more than an hour out of Shakespeare ' s period and language. The set, cos- tumes and interpretation rang true with the Elizabe- than era. " I ' m rather a traditional- ist in some respects, " Davis continued. " I didn ' t want Ro- meo to be a Martian or Juliet to be from Pluto. " Mitch Florer played the pivotal role of Romeo, and Elizabeth Ragsdale assumed the timeless guise of Juliet. Other principal players included Dan Caine as Mer- cutio, Cathy Jackson as the Nurse, Terry Pace as Friar Laurence, Tripp Storm as Ty- balt, Clark Perry as Paris, and Kevin Hammond as Ben- volio. Patrick Hood The " Romeo and Juliet " scene design was based on The Globe, the London the- ater where Shakespeare ' s plays were first performed. " The concept was the same, " Davis said. " It ' s as close as we could come to what The Globe actually looked like. " Authentic Elizabethan music provided another in- gredient of the play ' s period flavor. The production ' s live music was played onstage by the Baroque Recorder So- ciety. The group includes three university professors — Dr. John Roth, Dr. David Curott and Peggy Wade — as well as Dawn Hardy and Kathy Rader. The musicians had to decide which musical period would best suit the mood of " Romeo and Ju- liet. " " We decided to keep it all in the 16th century — noth- ing later than that, " Roth said. " " It was the kind of mu- sic that would have stirred Shakespeare ' s imagination. " The group selected songs that would correspond with the basic themes of the play — love, fate and joy. The primary selection, " The Earl of Essex, " became the love theme for the young protagonists. The song was based on the ill-fated love af- fair between Queen Eliza- beth and the Earl of Essex. " " There ' s a certain paral- lel there, " Roth said. " The sound has the love intensity, but with a strain of melan- choly fatedness. That motif was repeated whenever Ro- meo and Juliet were together onstage. " Frank Williams FORMERLY STRICKEN with love for the fair Rosaline.

CAPULET CROMIES Sampson (Brett Davis) and Gregory (Jeff Furno) confront representatives from the house of Montague in a fateful scene. J re fChan Jitney students who need financial assistance for tuition and books (or just to subsist) find help and support in the Financial Aid Office by Suzanne Tidwell " You may not be able to go to school this fall. " Those words are possi- bly the worst thing to say to a person preparing to start his final year in college. The thought of postponing that long-awaited degree any longer can seem unbearable. And perhaps the worst possible reason for this post- ponement, the one with the least number of reasonable, legal alternatives, is MO MONEY. Paying tuition and fees; buying books, notebooks, and pens; and somehow coming out with enough money for those little luxu- ries like rent and food has for- ever been the chief trial of college students. Many students and their families could not afford a college education, even with the student living at home, if it weren ' t for the miracle of Financial Aid. Fifty-two percent of the students at this university re- ceive some type of financial aid. For many it is a necessi- ty if they are to stay in FINANCIAL AID COUNSELOR Charlotte Hill offers advice to stu- dent Frank James. Hill handles most of the students who receive Federal Pell grants. school. Types of available assis- tance vary from federal and state grants and guaranteed student loans to academic, athletic, and activities schol- arships, as well as donor-ad- ministered scholarships from local civic organiza- tions and industry. These sources combined to total $4 million in financial aid to stu- dents of the university in 1984. This fall the scene in the Financial Aid Office (and in those offices at practically every university in the na- tion) was a little different than usual. " Chaos " is how Financial Aid Director Billy Mitchell described the situa- tion. The Federal Depart- ment of Education was eight weeks late in delivering pay- ment and award guidelines and new validation proce- dures to the universities. When the materials fi- nally arrived in July (instead of May as is usual), there were numerous changes in the forms. Approximately 60 percent of the work done up to that point had to be re- done. These delays caused the university to be behind schedule in notifying stu- dents of their financial awards. The students in turn grew anxious about their money and large numbers of students began to call the Fi- nancial Aid Office. " I can ' t blame them, " said Mitchell. " For many stu- dents it makes all the differ- ence in getting to go to school. " The almost constant phone calls put the already overworked staff under an even greater strain. However, the office never refused the calls of students, as other universities were reported to have done. Nor did they close their doors to the stu- dents three or four days a week, as did the University of Michigan for example. " We stayed open, " said Mitchell. " It was hectic, but we were here for the stu- dents. " Mitchell said that his staff put in many extra hours and dedicated themselves to helping students get in school. The delayed reception of Federal Pell Grants forced many students into last min- ute attempts to borrow mon- ey from relatives, banks and the school before the close of late registration. Mitchell said that he and his staff did a lot of what he laughingly called " cre- ative financial aid " to solve the difficulties of as many students as possible. " There would be a lot more students not in school this fall if it had not been for the care and concern of my staff, " he said. Some students waited to receive final grants for over a month after registra- tion. Then they could repay parents and uncles or the university for their tuition. They couldn ' t repay, however, the assistance and concern that helped many students get into school this fall. That ' s worth a lot more than money. ilvesto aetin iksand hat he jfwhal i " m 3 solve many ealol school een for of my Its for FILLING OUT the numerous finan- cial forms required to receive assis- tance is a tiresome, nerve-wracking job.

At the SOAR Freshman Year Simulation, incoming freshmen practice that necessary quality of patience (as well as building strong leg muscles). Aaising the Aoof off Norton Auditorium, the Romantics rolled into town to plug their latest album ' Rhythm Romance ' by Clark Perry The week before fall se- mester finals gave students a chance to unwind and have some loud fun before hitting the books. The Romantics, a popu- lar Philadelphia-based rock group, played to an enthusi- astic crowd in Morton Audi- torium as they swept through the South on a tour to promote their latest al- bum, " Rhythm Romance. " Clad in white snakeskin suits, boots, and black cot- ton shirts, the quartet filled Norton with their brand of rockabilly-style dance music for over an hour. Students stood on the arms of chairs (and often on each other) to show their excitement. The group had been on the road for over two months by the time they hit Flor- ence, playing gigs all along the East Coast. With two new videos out and generally favorable reviews, it was clear from the first shatter- THE THREE ORIGINAL members of the Romantics (Coz Canler, Wal- ly Palmar, Mike Skill) and drummer David Petratos (not shown) break into their hit single, " Talking In Your Sleep. " ing note that The Romantics liked to keep their audiences happy. Lead singer guitar- ist harmonica player Wally Palmar led the group through such hits as " Talk- ing In Your Sleep " and " What I Like About You. " With their hair piled high in pompa- dours, they were energetic and musically accurate in their delivery. Guitarist Coz Canler let his guitar do the singing for him. His leads on such songs as " Rock You Up, " " Love Me To The Max, " and " One In A Million " were electrifying and kept the audience dancing. The group also an- nounced the release of their newest single from the al- bum, " Mystified. " In a backstage interview only moments before the show began. Palmar said he had heard of the musical reputation of the Muscle Shoals area. " There have Bob Ci been some excellent record- ings done here, " he said. " I wanted to get over today and check out their studios, but there wasn ' t time. We had to go straight into a sound check. " While Palmar ' s har- monica became somewhat of a staple of Romantics ' hits, he said he didn ' t know why his sound was toned down for the new LP. " I never really noticed that before, " he admitted. " I ' ll have to go back and listen to the album again. " Drummer David Petra- tos and bassist Mike Skill proved their musical abilities as well that night, along with an unnamed keyboardist the band added for a few of their newer songs. Director of Student Ac- tivities Bob Glenn said a rock concert has not been held in Norton for many years. " The switch saved us about $7,000 because every time we put on a show in Flower Hall, we have to assemble i stage. " Some earlier cor certs held in Norton havi been Kansas and Billy Joel both in the early 1970s. Acoustically, the switcli was a wise decision. Indeed if sound is what the audienci wanted, that is what the; got. Most students agreec the show was one of the loud est ones they had attended Even though many stu dents grew restless durinc the hourplus wait betweer opening act Gary Jenkin; and the Romantics, mos stayed around for the only concert of the fall semester After the Florence gig Palmar said, " We ' ll be doinc a few more shows, then we ' l be going back out on the road again, touring well into 1986. " If the university audi! ence was any indication, the Romantics had a lot to lookl forward to. LEAD SINGER Wally Palmar ' s de cision to wear snakeskin instead of their traditional black leather suits came only minutes before the con- cert.

" plastic pta the convenience of using credit cards for anything from gasoline to clothing to food (and almost everything else which can be purchased) has been reaUzed not only by v orld travelers but has proved to be a tempting and sometimes dangerous spending escape for college students by Cathy Jackson " Don ' t leave home with- out it " has been shouted by the menacing American Ex- press agent at every good American who buys hot dogs, Chevrolets and does not carry cash. Surprisingly, credit card history did not begin with au- thor Stephen King who thinks it necessary to flash his plastic card while quiz- zing innocent bystanders — " Do you know me? " Diners Club was the first company to arrive at the concept of plastic money in 1950. The trend has been in- creasing steadily since, and has worked its way into col- lege campuses. Jeff Furno, a twenty- two year old senior, has accu- mulated a total of twelve credit cards but admits to us- ing only two now. " At first 1 used them all; now after a $1,500 debt, I ' ve learned otherwise. You have to get burned, then you know better. " Furno is only one case of credit card crunch. A survey done by Good Housekeeping in 1981 showed that consumers spend 23 percent more mon- ey when they are able to use a credit card rather than pay in cash. The reason for this excess expenditure is two- fold. First, there is a delusion which plagues many card holders — that there is more money to spend than actual- ly exists. It is a matter of prestige: when the clerk at Parisian to- tals your exorbitant pur- chases, an air of self-confi- dence surrounds you, not be- cause you remembered your deodorant spray, but be- cause you have Mastercard to protect you. Second, the fact that payments can be spread out over a matter of months pro- vides a false security to the buyer who spent fifty dollars over the budget. " I don ' t think people, es- pecially young people, put enough thought into the re- sponsibilities which the use of a credit card entails. I have friends who are one thou- sand dollars in debt month- ly, " said twenty-seven year old Debbie Prestridge. " I think someone needs a thor- ough understanding of the advantages and disadvan- tages of such a commodity. " A fear besieges many students who are aware of their addictive spending hab- its and therefore they avoid the plastic plague. Others appreciate the convenience of the easily concealed 3i 2 inch by 2l inch card, the opportunity to build a credit history which is a necessity when taking out a loan, and the ability to spread out pay- ments. Local department stores are waging their credit card campaigns in search of lucrative spenders. Many of the chains such as Pizitz, Sears, and Castner Knott fo- cus their green beam on the college population offering a wide variety of free gifts: uni- versal wrenches for the fu- ture plumber, place mats and steak knives for those lean- ing towards a career in the culinary arts, and of course, the trusty all-purpose flash- lights (not including batter- ies). The requirements of be- coming a card holder vary according to the store or bank. Beside the main factor (an access to funds), there are few other barriers. Bank Americard and Visa both have no age restrictions as long as a parent is willing to co-sign for a child (under the age of 18) claiming financial responsibility. The typical college stu- dent credit card application is a simplified form primarily interested in your name and monthly income. As senior Courtney Jagoe said, " They make it (credit card applica- tion) as informal as possible so as not to deter a potential customer. " The newest trend in the credit card industry is called the " debit-card. " Visa has a version on the market as does Mastercard (cleverly termed Mastercard II). The concept is the same as the traditional credit card but with an additional " spending control " device. It works on the same principle; as if using a checkbook with- out running out of checks. The deductions will ap- pear on a monthly checking statement, or in some cases the debit-card can be used to remove money from a sav- ings account. " Credit cannot be ig- nored, " said Mervyn ' s credit manager L. A. Hansen. " You ' re going to encounter it anyway. The whole econo- my of our country is based on credit. " What does this mean to a student in Florence, Ala- bama? When asked which free gift you would like, choose the T-shirt — it may be the only thing you ' ll own after an intimate encounter with your newly acquired plastic friend. Plastic Money 41 speeding Cifne. almost on schedule and usually at least three times l ■ a day the urge to eat strikes most students. When and I where and how do hungry students satisfy their urges? by Elizabeth Ragsdale and Jennifer Vickroy i The human body has been referred to as a temple and should be nourished with a well-balanced diet. The average college stu- dent ' s body, however, could be better known as a garbage disposal. Student eating habits are thrown off-balance by rig- orous schedules and a tempt- ing array of dining facilities. If hunger strikes on campus one may venture into the newly renovated Pub-in-the- Sub. The Pub ' s tasty new menu (coupled with a more pleasant atmosphere) has in- creased patronage over 50%. Towers cafeteria is also a dining choice offered on campus. " A well-balanced meal is offered, but students can alter the menu to fit their own distorted eating habits, " said senior football player Steve Rogers. Florence harbors an infi- nite number of mealtime pos- sibilities. If a sandwich tick- les your lunchtime craving, Trowbridge ' s, Chicago Sub- way and the Court Street Diner are within walking dis- tance of campus. Florence Boulevard is the home of Fast Food Para- dise. " Each of us has a drive- thru window that we hold close to our hearts, " said se- nior Michele Thomas. For late-night starving study-buddies, Tourway Inn is a delightful break, but if certain exams demand undi- vided attention. Domino ' s Pizza delivers! The well-pre- pared student, however, stocks up on popcorn, pre zels, Doritos and other an munition for late night mui ' chies. Upon entering colleg eating habits become ver poor. But the universal desir to be thin has triggered massive weight loss wave and this desire may eventua ly cause an overall chang — for the better — in sti dents ' diets. GRABBING A QUICK BITE is the nam of the game for Tracy Pool as he has sandwich in the Commuter Lounge. a In IT ' S PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to decide between tfie chicken sal- ad sandwich and the chili-laden hot dog at Trowbridges, so most hungry students opt for both. Paige Rhodes and Blair Thornton enjoy their lunch at the downtown restau- rant which is almost always packed. The sandwich shop is a fa- vorite with businessmen, as well as university students, faculty and staff. MEALTIME FINDS MAtSY STO DENTS who can ' t get off campus eating at the remodeled Pub-in-the Sub. Catherine Lewter, an eight year veteran of the snack shop kitchen, serves breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner to her wait- ing customers. SOMETIMES THERE ' S NO TIME for a real meal, and students must depend on the good old Tom ' s snack machines located all over campus. Barry McFall. a sopho- more from Waterloo, eats his pota- to chips in front of the Student Union Building. CHICAGO SUBWAY is another downtown eatery which caters to the university crowd. The Subway is one of the many restaurants which support the SGA Flor-Ala Student Discount Program — of- fering a ten percent discount to stu- dents, faculty, and staff. A BIG MAC ATTACK is less serious since (not one but) two new McDon- ald ' s restaurants have opened in the Shoals area.

" L Puh in the S h a new project sponsored by the SAB in the SUB brings Uve entertainment back on campus by Cathy Jackson The sounds of Foreign- er, Lionel Richie, Bruce Springsteen, and Toto mes- merized the student audi- ence. No, Live-Aid is not touring Alabama universi- ties, but Anthony Little and Bill Russell were able to bring a little music magic to the newly created Pub-in-theSub live entertainment project. Russell and Little were chosen along with Richard Welborn, Dedra Eastland and Jennifer Felton to perform weekly in the Pub-in-theSub facilities. Each student possesses unique style which sepa- rates him her from the oth- Russell described his music as a cross between enny LeBlanc and Phil eagy, while Little prefers ilads which tend to be writ- en around the piano. Russell opes to perform contempo- ary Christian music in con- ert, eventually, and do ome recording. Little ' s ambitions are ust as high. " I want to per- ' orm as an artist and write nusic, " he said. Thanks to he new project, each musi- cian is able to begin ap- proaching his dreams. Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities and the mind behind the Put -in-the- Sub concept, thinks that the live entertainment will high- light campus talent which before was hidden behind classroom doors. " We hope to begin offer- ing the campus a variety of events versus one or two ex- travaganzas, " he said. " The key is to keep it simple and fun and avoid losing money. " Concerts have proven to be disappointments; not only has Student Activities suffered a monetary deficit, but there are no facilities on campus with a proper acous- tical structure in which to have concerts. How do students feel about the new idea? Paula Blackwood, a freshman, is enthusiastic. " I think it ' s a great idea. " she said. " For some kids, it ' s an opportuni- ty to relax on campus and forget about exams. " Sophomore Mark Nar- more hopes that potential artists will now have an out- let for their skills. He demon- strated his support by ac- companying Anthony Little on piano for performances of Toto ' s " Hold the Line, " Mi- chael McDonald ' s " I Keep Forgetting, " and Doobie Brothers ' " Minute by Min- ute. " Regardless of the obvi- ous talent, the student body seems to be apathetic. Audi- ences tend to be small. The reasoning behind this lack of interest seems to be two-fold. First, the adver- tising of the Pub-in-the-Sub is not reaching the student body or the community. " What advertising? " said senior James Bell, the sound engineer for the Pub. " You need more people with bigger mouths. " Tim Moore, the chair- man of the Student Union Committee which sponsors the talent, realizes that peo- ple are not being adequately informed. He thinks that this issue will be dealt with as the unexpected problems of the new project are solved. There is no " last call for alcohol " during the Thurs- day night entertainment, since it is illegal in Alabama to serve alcoholic beverages at a university related func- tion. Would this social ele ment improve attendance? James Bell thinks it would. " College students are confronted with the choices of penny beer at Patricks; free drinks at Adams; or good talent, easy access, and ONE OF HIS WANY ORIGINAL compositions, " Flew Away Like a Dove. " is performed by Anthony Little during the Sub cabaret. A ju- nior from Decatur. Little also per- formed other artists ' work such as Foreigner ' s " Head Games " and Lio- nel Richie ' s " Still. " no cover charge if they come to Pub-in-the-Sub; we ' re do- ing something wrong, " he said. Others believe that if this element was added, the original concept of " clean fun " would be defeated. Bob Glenn said the Pub could be a viable alternative to area night clubs. As the project becomes established, people will get into the habit of at- tending just as if it were pen- ny-beer night. It becomes a herd instinct — " go where the crowd is. " Are there hesitations about live entertainment in the Student Union Building? Tina Phillips thinks the con- cept is wonderful but " the plastic uncomfortable chairs need to go. " The addition of an emcee, according to Tim Moore would add unity to the acts and, with a touch of comedy, could maintain crowd energy. Among other sugges- tions were a professional lighting system, visual ef- fects, and better P.A. equip - ment. Mark Narmore would like to see a grand piano add- ed. Bob Glenn has great plans for the Student Union Building. By late spring or early summer of 1987 he hopes to have completed a fifty thousand gross-square- feet addition to the building. The goal is to make the re- modeled complex the center of 24-hour activities. Put ir Sie SOB 45 Comic Aelmf David Brenner was a welcome break after weeks of ice (IDINGHA dJileieH ' l ' thai i " ' jKiJtStW by Brett Davis and Clark Perry The house was packed and ready. " I always knew my career would end in Flor- ence, Alabama, " quipped David Brenner, whose Nor- ton Auditorium concert was postponed twice by severe ice storms. Brenner took it from there and played the March 7 show as if it really were his last performance. In random manner, Brenner parodied certain aspects of the South he had noticed, like the Stuckey ' s restaurant chain. " My God, all those signs that tell you how close you ' re getting to it . . . you ' re really expecting something! Then you take the exit and you see a roadside shack sell- ing canned nuts to quench your thirst. " Brenner ' s comic deliv- ery was never off the mark, even when he was dealing with such non-related topics as fat people: " Scary! When they ' re riding a moped, you can ' t even see the moped! " And da ting: " I save up for it all week and the bitch blows it on double-cheeseburgers and large fries! " Brenner also displayed a Rodney-Dangerfieldtype of self-deprecating humor. When he took his jacket off early in the show, he hung it BLOOD WILL TELL, according to this Second City skit. At a confer- ence with their children ' s teacher (Madalene Malato), a group of par- ents exhibit the same classroonn behavior exhibited by their kids ev- eryday. TOPPLING POPULAR CULTORAL ICONS is a Brenner specialty. Re- ferring to the recent workers ' strike at Disneyland, he said, " They ' re hiring illegal aliens! Yell ' Border Pa- trol! ' and see Mickey and Minnie go over the wall! " over the microphone stand looked at it, and said, " Here. This is me as a kid. " Referring to himself as " David Brenner ' s foreplay, " Gary Jenkins delighted the audience with funny and ac- curate imitations of such singers as Bruce Spring- steen, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. The heart of Jenkins ' show, however, was his mov- ing rendition of a song he wrote called " Suzy Q. " The song was dedicated to his friend Suzy Eckles, a univer- sity cheerleader who died in February. Jenkins admitted that he had never performed the song before, but said that it meant a lot to him. The emo- tional performance brought him a huge ovation, and he took a few minutes to regain composure before going on. But it was regained, and in the spirit of Pete Town- send, he made way for Bren- ner ' s lunacy by smashing two guitars on stage. Relaxing after his show, Brenner told reporters that his seemingly-random joke delivery really was random. He said that he has about 23 hours worth of ma- terial to choose from for his one-hour 20 minute shows. OLDING HANDS.

" For a tango contest. Isn ' t it great? " The Second City Players learned a long time ago that " keeping the energy up " is a vital factor to their performances. " We have to, " said Player Carey Goldensberg. " If any one person out of the troupe is even a little out of it, it hurts the whole show. " The stage is literally electric when the Players take over. Short skits and acts are rapid and seem- ingly spontaneous, the laughter from a previ- ous scene often over- flowing into the fol- lowing one. The show demands constant innovation from every member, whether it is pianist Laura Wasserman adding an unexpected melody to underline a skit, or two bums sit- ting on a park bench discussing politics. " We never talk about the same thing twice, " said Rick Hall, one of the bums. Twenty second costume changes. Quick knowing glances at the skit roster. Good-natured jokes to keep everyone in the mood. And every now and then, a pat on the back for a job exceptionally done. No jealousy or cliques. The Second Players are an efficient family, each one knowing exactly what is expected of them. " I ' d love to stay and chat, " Goldensberg said during a brief backstage interview. He walked toward the spotlight and his thin face suddenly assumed the regality and determination of the best of the Holly- wood swashbucklers as he declared, " but there are college stu- dents that need to be entertained.

" The Society entered the festival $10,000 in debt and doubtful about its financial future. But the public response to the " 85 event pulled the Handy Festival out of the red and onto the 1986 calendar. " Everyone wants to sound the death knell of our community, " said Peggy Clay, a past president of the Society, " But the music of W.C. Handy can still pull people together. " The festival offered 23 free events, a decision which allowed more people to enjoy the colorful array of activities. Admission was charged to only four events. BIG SOUNDS.

Mi fih 4fl s e Muscle Shoals Sound Musicians from diverse backgrounds find that ' certain magic ' in the recording studios across the river -L he music industry ' is alive and well and rockin ' in Muscle Shoals. Since the late 1950s, Muscle Shoals has become a mini-center of major pop music recordings. The trend w ' as started by the Phillips brothers— Sam and Judd— of Florence. Those enterprising producers opened their own studios, in Muscle Shoals and Mem- phis, Tbnn., and gave birth to the magical mid-50s sound known as rockabilly. By the end of the decade, the Phillips-owned Sun Records company had introduced Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Charlie Rich to the music world. Over the past 30 years. Muscle Shoals has branched out into one of the leading producers of hit rhythm and blues records. Classics like Percy Sledge ' s " When a Man Loves a Woman " and Aretha Franklin ' s " R-E-S- PE-C-T -both produced in Muscle Shoals studios- paved their way into music history. Diverse artists like The Osmonds, The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams Jr., Liza Minnelli and Andy Williams have scored hits in Muscle Shoals studios. Bob Dylan even picked the Shoals for his first contem- porary gospel album, " Slow Train Coming. " " There ' s a certain magic here, " said one veteran Muscle Shoals producer. " It ' s hard to describe But you get a certain tj-pe of sound out of these studios. Maybe it ' s the mixture of different styles in this part of the country. We ' ve got country, gospel, rock, blues, jazz— a little bit of everything. " The famed " Muscle Shoals Sound " was epitomized by two potent studio groups which deve- loped in the 60s. The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Sec- tion and the Muscle Shoals Horns continue to influence the sound of modem popular music Muscle Shoals returned to the music spotlight in 1984 when Julian Lennon, the talented young son of slain Beatle John Lennon, recorded his debut album at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. Produced by music guru Phil Ramone, the album and single " Valotte " became No. 1 millon sellers on the national pop charts— proof of the dura- ble appeal of the " Muscle Shoals Sound. " Diversionary Tactics INightlife in the Shoals offers a variety of entertainment alternatives on both sides of the river. The area provides a vari- ety of diversions to relieve the grinding pressure of college education. Since Florence and Colbert County both went " v et, " a mul- titude of lively night spots have opened at strategic locations across the Shoals. Each establishment offers — in various combinations— dining, dancing and beverages. The clubs fall in and out of favor as crov d migrate from one late-night shelter to another. Patrick ' s in Muscle Shoals is the biggest, loudest and most colorful disco in the area. The facility remains a perennial favorite of the college crowd. Calico ' s Restaurant and Tavern in Sheffield offers a nostal- gic, leisurely atmosphere with its striking antique charm and live jazz and rock music. Some of the area ' s best musicians- including leaders of the " Muscle Shoals Sound " — entertain under the stars at Calico ' s outdoor courtyard. Rennie ' s Southern Touch, another highlight of Sheffield ' s night life, also provides live music and a distinctive atmosphere. Rennie ' s also features a sportive touch in its popular billiard room. The top after-hours attraction in Florence is Plum ' s. The nightclub offers vintage ' 50s rock music, a popular buffet and a small dance floor. Plum ' s proximity to the college makes the club a musical oasis for UNA students. MEET THE MEDIA.

" We ' ve got a reputation for bringing in world- class performers, " said Dr. Wayne Todd, chairman of the series board. " This year was no exception. " For nearly half a century, the series has imported top quality entertainment from across the globe. In 1985 alone, Norton Auditorium became the local showcase for the Prague Philharmonic Symphony, " The Mikado " by the Gilbert and Sul- livan Players, soprano Marvis Martin, the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society and the Annapolis Brass Quintet. " It ' s amazing that a city this size can have a concert series of this caliber, " said Robert Beck, a member of the board. " Excellent concerts are a tra- dition in this area. " The most popular attraction of the season proved to be the lavish, colorful production of the " Mikado " operetta by New York ' s prestigious Gil- bert and Sullivan Players. The tour marked the company ' s 100th anniversary of " The Mikado. " In conjunction with the performance. Dr. John Roth of UNA ' S English Department conducted a special forum on the composers. Dr. James Simp- son of the UNA Music Department held a special forum on the Chamber Music Society ' s appearance. " UNA has always pitched in with these forums, " Dr. Todd noted. " The professors have so much expertise in each of these areas: literature, drama, dance, music. It helps break down the barrier between the audience and the material.

The Kilby Concert Series, now in its 24th season, is the major fundraising project of the schools Parent-Teacher Associ- ation. The laboratory school is located on the UNA campus and provides a training ground for education majors. " The series has always raised money for Kilby programs, " said Mrs. Dewees Crocken. PTA president. " The PTA then uses the money for equipment that ' s not funded by UNA or the state. " The season featured compelling performances of " The Snow Girl " and " The Wind in the Willows. " Funds from this year ' s ticket sales will be used to buy stage curtains and expand the auditorium ' s potential as a multi- purpose facility. " We also use some of the proceeds to buy tickets for under- privileged children. " she said. For the first time in the series ' history, the Kilby shows were held in the school ' s auditorium. Past seasons were held in local high schools or in Norton Auditorium. Daie Ganis CHOPIN-LISZT.

" The art center gives them an outlet to the rest of the public. " This mecca of visual and performing arts can be found a scant few blocks away from campus. Located on Tus- caloosa Street, the art center faces Wilson park and covers two World War l-era houses donated to the city by Hiram Kennedy- Douglass. The historic complex is often used for piano and voice recitals, drama classes, audi- tions, crafts displays, lectures, films and art exhibits. " We cover all the dis- ciplines, " Kimberlin said. " Whenever we see a void, we try to fill it with a new program. " Banishing Boredom I ou ' re never too old, as the saying goes. An intrepid entourage of senior citizens gathered at the univer- sity in July for the offbeat Elderhostel program. The exceptional program, now four years old, lured senior citizens from eight states to campus. " It was a hoot! " one elated octagenarian proclaimed after a trip to the Coon Dog Cemetery. " It ' s given us a different perspectiva " The Elderhostel group travelled to several of the Shoals ' historic hot spots. Shoals natives and out-of-town visitors revelled in the flashy song and dance of the dazzling SOAR show. They listened 1 to the foot-stompin ' bluegrass sounds of the Foster Family String; Band. " Elderhostel is a marvelous program, " said 73-year-old NeUie ' , Nicholson. " It ' s educational, thrilling and fun.

" As a crowning achievement, the center provided the impe- tus for the budding Shoals Symphony orchestra. An out- growth of the Tennessee Valley String School, the full-scale community orchestra utilizes professional musicians, stu- dents, faculty members and all manner of music aficionados. " The area has a wealth of talent, " said Betty Dardess, director of the orchestra. " We have the musicians and the music lovers to support a full- scale orchestra. It ' s something people want, and it ' s some- thing the area needs. " The orchestra is co- sponsored by the university, the Tennessee Valley Art Center and the Kennedy- Douglass Center for the Arts.

The truest way to judge a uni- versity, however, is through its students themselves. This year 53 students were chosen to appear in the 1986 edition of Who ' s Who Among American Universities and Col- leges. Each of these students has demon- strated certain leadership capabilities and distinctive traits that are worthy of this honor. " College has given me an understand- ing of the real world, " said Alan Benjamin August. " 1 feel I have developed leadership abilities through my campus involvement. " August, a senior majoring in manage- ment information systems and finance, feels that his fraternity, Phi Gamma Delta, encouraged him to become involved on campus. James Bell is a senior and was a SOAR counselor during the summer of 1985. His advice to incoming freshmen is " Learn to budget your time and attempt to balance your life socially and academically. " A mar- keting and management major, Bell claims that the Sigma Chi fraternity has affected his college life the most, giving him the chance to " work and have fun with people who are all individuals. " " Attending college has changed my life by placing me within a different group of people as compared to my high school friends, " admitted Sandi Berryhill. a junior majoring in sociology of corrections. " UNA gave me the opportunity to get a quality education and get involved in many extracurricular activities, " she said. A senior from Florence, Laura Leigh B roadfoot is majoring in accounting. After a successful tryout for the Lionette squad, she chose UNA over other schools because " It is large enough to be well-known, but small enough that you can meet the major- ity of people. " Broadfoot said her parents have been the greatest influence while she has been at college. Stephanie Burleson is a senior major ing in radio, television and film. She said that although being from Muscle Shoals had a lot to do with her college choice, she would recommend the college to anyone " interested in a small school that can serve your academic needs. " Burleson plans to own an advertising business in the future. Her advice to incom- ing students is " Learn how to manage your time so you can do as much as you want to. " " I chose UNA because I felt that it was a good school and that it was small enough that an excellent teacher-student ratio could be sustained, " said junior finance ma- jor Alan Bush. " UNA is a school where you can have fun and receive a quality education, " he said. He stressed the need for studying, es- pecially to freshmen. " Being a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority has affected my college years the most, " said Elizabeth Ellen Cagle, a senior from Bridgeport majoring in interi- or design. " Being a member has enabled me to meet many wonderful people and to do many worthwhile things. " Other than her family, Cagle said that Leon " Bud " Smith and Dr. Elizabeth Walter have influenced her the most. " They have helped me to become more confident in my- self, " she said. Senior Kimberly Renea Darby plans to pursue her Ph.D. in geography after gradu- ating from UNA. Her career goal is to work with the government in international rela- tions and travel. " College has made me see situations through other people ' s eyes, " she said. " I am much more open-minded and I never want to quit learning. " " UNA should revamp its curriculum and definitely should adopt a four-point grade system as soon as possible, " said ju- nior Brett O ' Neal Davis from Florence, a journalism and photography major. " Getting involved with more activities than I can handle has affected me th most, " he said. " It has made me think mor clearly of my own goals and, hopefully, ha brought me a little bit closer to realizin them. " " Upon graduation, I will be commi; sioned as a second lieutenant in the U.5 Army, " said Gerald O ' Neal Dorroh, a junic majoring in biology. " I plan to spend severe years on active duty. " Being a brother in Phi Gamma Deltc Dorroh feels that his association with th fraternity has helped him socially and schc lastically. " 1 wouldn ' t say UNA has change my life, " he said, " but it has let me see m potential. " " I now know that you must work han to make your dreams come true, " admitte( Dedra Michelle Eastland, who performei in the SOAR cabaret which she describee as a mental boost to her career in singing A junior majoring in political science her advice to freshmen is to get involved ii all phases of college life, and to get to knov the instructors on a personal basis. Senior Sharon Lynn Elliot would rec ommend UNA because of its student anc faculty intimacy. " The students get tc know the teachers and can go to them fo3 advice, " she said. Sharon is majoring in early childhood education. " College has made me more open to new ideas and given me the confidence tci question something that may not seem right, " explained Dewayne Eubanks. " Ii has taught me not just the answer to a ques; tion but how to arrive at that answer. " Eubanks is a senior majoring in biol) ogy and plans to enter medical school. Senior Jeffrey Scott Furno is a majoi in broadcast communications and has been neavily involved with the theatre depart ' ment. Through his role as SGA Supreme Court Chief Justice and many other cam- pus activities, Furno feels that anybody with " a little drive can go all the way to the top at UNA. " " Being away at college has changed my life in that I am now more responsibl I iiimn iffijlyre k ' said I io, tele " k not s ' K id col Anjif iogyan. iitottieO jsasecoi Asa rority, an apply het " Coll ingme j tes, " sh met and tl Swnmei eitShawi fte oppo sltengthei myselMi sibility; t fiom the echa t»ce. « and more apt to make decisions concerning my future and what I believe in and stand for, " said Mark Edward Hess. A senior in radio, television and film, Mark ' s values " are not shifted by circumstances around me in college. " Angle Hilton, a major in professional ' ™ biology and physical education plans to " go into the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps as a second lieutenant. " As a sister in Alpha Gamma Delta so- rority, an athletic trainer for the football team and a member of Leo ' s Ladies, Hilton feels she has gained a lot of patience by ' " working with such a diverse group of indi- viduals. Tonya Michelle Hollis, a junior from ™ ' ' Haley ville, has her goals set for a larger city after graduation where she can hopefully apply her nursing skills. " College changed my life by present- ing me with a broader range of views and ideas, " she said. " The new people 1 have s ' " met and the knowledge I have acquired has given me a more educated and open mind. " ' I would not say that college has changed my life or values, " said senior Rob- 1 ' ert Shawn Hausmann. " Instead, it gave me the opportunity to build my character, strengthen my leadership abilities, work on my self-discipline and handle more respon- ¥ sibility, " he explained. A native of Toledo, Ohio, Hausmann " was initially attracted to UNA because of its reputation for turning out quality teachers from the education department. He has since changed his major to computer sci- " s ' ence. Sharon Yvonne Horton, a senior ma- joring in accounting and marketing, hopes to work for a diversified accounting com- pany someday. " Living in the dorm probably affected me the most, " she said of her experiences in college. " It gave me the chance to become acquainted with a great many people. " " Coming from a liberal town in New Hampshire, I underwent a severe culture shock by moving to the Bible-belt, " said Cathy Jackson, a sophomore double-ma- joring in radio, television and film and Eng- lish. " CIMA ' s small setting allowed me time and space to gain a foothold and retain an identity as an individual. " Sandra Marie Jackson, a junior major- ing in broadcasting, feels that extracurricu- lar activities have helped shaped her char- acter. " These activities give you the chance to put what you learn to work and the re- sults are very tangible ... no classroom gives you that total experience. " After graduation, Jackson plans to at- tend graduate school. Tialisa Lynn Jackson, a junior major- ing in prelaw and accounting, said " The independence of being on my own for the first time and having to discipline myself " affected her most while she attended col- lege. A native of Russellville, Jackson plans to go to law school and pursue her career as a lawyer. " I originally came to CIFHA on a football scholarship, " explained Gregory Xavier Law from Jacksonville. " But after playing two seasons, my interests turned to other aspects of the campus. I wanted a complete Alan Benjamin August James Bell Sand!

" Law is a senior majoring in Broadcast- ing. Randy Lee, a junior from Hamilton ma- joring in Spanish said, " Your college years are your most memorable. " With a minor in military science, he plans to go into active duty in the G.S. Army in his near future. " The three greatest forces in my college career have been God, cheerleading and the college fraternity that has molded me, " he said. George B. Long, a senior majoring in political science, will be pursuing graduate studies at the University of Alabama and will use them to enter a law practice. " College has shown me that I am not always right. It has also shown me that I must respect the other person ' s opinion as much as I respect my own, " said Long. " I would give an incoming freshman this advice, " said senior Anthony Scott McCorkle. " All parts of college, academic and social, are a part of the learning pro- cess. It is possible to have a high academic standing and be active in organizations on campus. " McCorkle ' s career goals lie in the field of environmental biology. Cathleen Erin McGee, a senior from Madison, felt that " without college, I would not have had the many opportunities to strive for so many personal goals and ambi- tions. " Cathleen ' s parents have been the greatest influence on her college due to their support of her endeavors. She is ma- joring in commercial music. Tonya Michelle Mollis Sharon Yvonne Morton Cathleen Anne Jackson Sandra Marie Jackson Tialisa Lynn Jackson Gregory Xavier Law Randy Lee George B. Long Anthony Scott McCorkle Cathleen Erin McGee Marcus Gerald Michael Jayne Anne Miller Top Flight Marcus Gerald Michael, a senior from Cullman, said that although he had many relatives attend this college, " I also knew they had a solid business department which I felt would give me the education I needed for a successful career. " Majoring in accounting and finance, Michael hopes to go into the fie|d of banking or possibly ac- counting. " A teacher in high school told me once that college would be the best time of my life, " said senior Jayne Anne Miller. " I went to class, I studied, 1 worked, I didn ' t under- stand. I took exams, I thought she was crazy. " " But one day I was sitting talking to some friends — debating some issue on art or philosophy or something like that and I remembered her. And I knew what she was talking about, " she continued. Miller has a double major in speech communication and theatre (option II) and stud io art (option II). Charles Raymond Montgomery, a se- nior majoring in journalism, feels that the Sigma Chi fraternity was the most influen- tial factor during his years at college. " The emphasis on scholarship, fun times and brotherhood has made college meaningful and fun, " he said. Montgomery is a participant in the ROTC program and will be serving with the U.S. Army after graduation. Sheri Anne Moore was influenced the most during her college years by her father. " He always encourages me to do my best, but is not judgmental, " she said. A senior from Huntsville majoring in finance and marketing, Sheri plans to attend graduate school to obtain her MBA. " College has changed my life by mak- ing me more aware of possibilities, " said senior Sharon Melissa Morphew. " Every- thing may not be within my reach but there ' s no harm in grasping for it. " Morphew plans to travel overseas to find employment in England. She is major- ing in elementary education and hopes to one day get her master ' s in English. " Culturally, Florence is not as bad as one might think, " said Michael Clark Perry, a junior majoring in professional writing. " It is low-key and convenient, but it does need to raise its admissions standards. " Perry eventually plans to write for a living. " Being a UNA Golden Girl has affected me the most, " said Margaret Allison Pride, a junior from Florence. " The activities I have been involved in as a Golden Girl made me realize my interests in people and has prompted me to pursue a career in com- munity relations. " Her ambition is to work as a public relations agent for the Chamber of Com- merce in Gulf Breeze, Florida. " I plan to go to Washington, D.C., in the summer and intern in the Senate, " said Lisa Gayle Reeder. " I will then pursue my paralegal degree. " A senior double-majoring in political science and office administration, she feels (JNA has instilled in her a vote of confi- dence she feels will lead her through the high-pressure G.S. political system. Lisa Rena Rogers received a scholar ship from the Miss Alabama Pageant to at tend UNA. When the junior frorr Homewood took a tour of the campus, she was sold. " UNA is unique in that it allows fresh men to be as involved as anyone else, " she said. A major in public relations, she is a Golden Girl and a member of Zeta Tau Alpha. " I would like to find a job in industry with my computer science major, " said se- nior Melanee Celeste Sanders of her after graduation plans. " I hope to eventually goi back to school and get certification to teach. " Sanders ' advice to incoming students would be to make the most of their first year. " Don ' t leave college wishing you hadt done something different, " she said. Mark Sanderson, a senior double-ma-a joring in political science and sociology, plans to be working full-time after gradu-J ation in a political campaign until the fall ofi 1986. He then hopes to enroll in law school.l " Serving in the capacity of SGA Presi-i dent has affected me the most at UNA, " he said. " I have learned to work with all types of people. " Jacqueline Elaine Scott, a senior from Florence, plans to pursue a career in broad- casting and its many facets of the media world. " Professors I had three years ago still know my name, " she said. " You ' re not just an insignificant number here trying to get a degree. " I " Attending college has given me the opportunity to mature and set goals while being around other young people with high expectations, " said senior Lisa Gail Sharp. She is double-majoring in accounting and computer information services. " Originally I had not intended to go to UNA, but an injury received in a car acci- dent prevented me from going to West Point, " explained junior Graham Lansford Sisson. " However, since I am here, I have tried to make the best of my education at UNA. I feel it will adequately prepare me for law school. " He is double-majoring in accounting and English. Christopher Adam Smith, a history and political science major from Florence, has learned the value of honesty through his experiences at UNA. " The need for intel- lectual honesty has become very important for me here at UNA, " he said. " I ' ve learned how to think and to never accept things at face value. " David Tyrone Smith, a senior from Arab, came to UNA because of its small size. He feels that this factor allowed him to get involved with all aspects of college life. Smith is a commercial photography major and hopes to one day own his own photography studio. " My being a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity has without a doubt affect- ed my college life the most, " said William Edward Smith, a senior majoring in politi- cal science. " It has allowed me to make friendships that will last a lifetime and it has helped me better prepare myself for life after college. " Larry McRae Sparks is a senior major- ing in computer science. A native of Rus- sellville, his parents attended UNA, which influenced his decision. " It is the perfect mixture of a quality education in a small school setting, " he said of UNA. " Don ' t expect to party all the time, " is the advice from junior Tripp Storm of Rus- sellville. " Don ' t push yourself into a major you ' re not certain of. Wait a year if you ' re not sure. " The commercial art and theatre major said that the most important part of his college experience was " gaining broth- ers in the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, and the love and concern we share for each other. " " College has given me a broad spec- trum of interests and goals, " said William Craig Tankersley. " It has taught me how to budget my time and set goals for myself " Tankersley is a double major in mar- keting and management. Marcla Jo Waldo is a senior from Somerville who is majoring in math educa- tion. " Organizations I am involved in have affected me the most. I stay busy and have many friends that I would not have met otherwise. " She is a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. " I came to UNA to get a quality educa- tion at a school that is not only student- oriented, but community-oriented as well, " said Anne Leslie Warren, a senior from Florence.

His advice to freshmen is to " set their goals early and go for it! " Who ' s Who 71 Five year plan More students have begun to take a little extra time before meeting the demands of the real world by Suzanne Tidwell and Wendy Woodfin m Where are all those eager, ready-to- meet-the-world students who take twenty- one hour semesters and go to summer school every summer in order to graduate in three years? Becoming a thing of the past, it seems. Mow there are more students who opt to graduate a year later rather than a year early. The " five-year plan " for college edu- cation is more popular than ever. Why would anyone want to spend an entire extra year in school? There are as many reasons as there are five-year stu- dents. Financial problems, family situa- tions, and transferring to another school (and possibly losing hours in the process) are frequently cited reasons. More common, perhaps, is a change in majors. Suddenly, after six or seven semes- ters, some students decide that they are not happy with their chosen field. " I tried to finish but I hated my major, " said junior Paige Cantrell. " I came back to school for me and I ' m really enjoying what I ' m doing. " One student who had completed a ma- jor in psychology realized during what would have been her final semester that she was very dissatisfied with her field. " One day I was stricken with panic at the thought of spending the rest of my life being miserable in my job, " said Suzanne Tidwell. " I have always been involved in theatre and had taken several classes just for enjoyment, so I just changed majors. " She has also added a second major in Eng- lish to her five-year program. Adding a major is probably more com- mon than changing fields completely. Stu- dents faced with the national unemploy- ment figures and horror stories about forty- year-old college graduates working in grocery stores have become very job-orient- ed. Second and third majors are particular- ly popular with those in the education field. Why would any school hire a mere English teacher when they could hire a person capa- ble of teaching English, French and histo- ry? As for paying for that extra year, direc- tor of financial aids Billy Mitchell said that students who need financial aid for more than eight semesters can usually get it with- out extra problems. " The money is there, " said Mitchell, " it is now limited to those who qualify. " Many five-year students are people who have returned to school after dropping out for a while. Music major Donna Gregg, a fifth year senior, said that she quit school to work but returned after six months. " I found out that you just can ' t get a good job without a degree, " she said. Academic Dean Eugene Jabker doesn ' t necessarily recommend a five-year program to all students, but it might be right for some, and it doesn ' t hurt the school. The university is trying to provide more services for non-traditional students — more night classes for those with full- time jobs, for example. And there is the Re-entering Students Association (RESA), an organization for stu- dents returning after a considerable ab- sence. Also in the planning stages is a coun- seling system for better guidance in select- ing a field of study. Earlier and more thoughtful selection of a major could pre- vent (or at least lessen) the number of changes in majors. The extra course wo rk entailed in the five-year plan might not be such a bad thing. More courses usually mean more in- formation and experience. And, as the sometimes frightening future grows larger and less distant, many students have decid- ed that every little bit of extra knowledge and training helps. FOR SOME STaOENTS college offers job training as well as education. Sandy Jackson, associate editor of the campus newspaper decided to get as much experience as possible while she is in school. " I ' m just not in any hurry to get out. " Jackson said. CHIEF JGSTICE of the student court Jeff Furno found that college responsibilities are sometimes more than just making the grades. Because of his extracurricular activities, Furno has extended his col- lege career beyond the " normal " four-year schedule. " I ' D ALMOST COMPLETED a psychology degree and decided I didn ' t want it, " said Suzanne Tidwell. " Working on theatre productions takes a lot of my time. I just switched to something that I enjoy.

Brian Williams fills up his car on the way to class. A big business Results of a Small Business Development Center survey prove that the university has a considerable economic impact on the Shoals area by Michele Savage People tend to look at a university only in terms of its academic and cultural contri- butions to the community. But college is not just caps and gowns and ivy-colored halls. College is big business. " A university such as UNA creates a greater economic impact on the surround- ing area than a business of comparable size, " said Marketing and Management head Dr. William S. Stewart, director of the Small Business Development Center on campus. " This is because of the heavy ex- penditures by any university for salaries, supplies and local expenditures. A universi- ty produces educated people and not pro- ducts. Therefore, the benefit continues be- cause people spend money. " According to a survey done for the Small Business Development Center by Stewart and staff consultant Sandra Car- penter, the university ' s total economic im- pact on the Shoals area is $79,025,500. University president Dr. Robert M. Guillot announced the results of the study at a late October press conference. " Money creates jobs and with $79 mil- lion, you can create a lot of jobs, " said Guil- lot. " The University of North Alabama is one of the 12 largest employers in the Shoals area. " The University employs 444 faculty and staff. Through direct employment and indirect effects of in stitution-related busi- ness activities, the school creates 3,831 jobs, according to the survey. Stewart explained that the study was a conservative one measuring the universi- ty ' s net impact on the local economy. It did not include tuitions paid by students to at- tend school or expenditures by the universi- ty ' s food service, ROTC, or most campus organizations. The $79 million figure was derived from university-related local expenditures, purchases from local sources by local bu- sinesses in support of their university-relat- ed business, and local business volume stimulated by the expenditure of university- related income by local individuals other than faculty, staff, or students. " If we increase our enrollment by 1000 students, it would be the same thing as bringing in a major industry, as far as im- pact, " said Guillot. Bringing student enrollment up to 6000 would require the university to hire about 40 more instructors and 10 more staff people, according to Guillot. This year, the university hired for the first time three full-time recruiters to help the Office of Ad- missions achieve the 6000-enrollment goal. Stewart predicted that this goal will be attained in the next five years but that the increase will be accounted for by reentering and junior college students rather than by high school graduates. The local talent pool benefits from the university ' s presence in the area just as much as the local economy, Guillot said. " Besides the money flowing into the Shoals area through UNA, there is another inflow of significant, though less measur- able, economic importance — the inflow of expertise, " he said. " UNA acts as a talent magnet attracting to the area teachers, scholars, and administrators with finely honed skills and specialized knowledge. " The presence of UNA has, through the years, helped create an environment in which knowledge, religion, health care, business, industry, government, and the arts are not only nurtured, but encour- aged. " STODENT PHILIP OLIVER gets some mechanical assistance in class from his typing instructor. Linda Sims. If the university achieves its 6.000-enrollment goal, at least 40 more instructors would be hired. Economic Impact 75 A healthy outlook In the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department students and instructors share a common interest in fitness and SA ellness ' by Suzanne Tidwell When " no pain, no gain " entered the American vernacular and decided to stay, memberships at gyms, fitness centers and exercise classes increased dramatically. The fitness craze that has been grow- ing steadily over the last five years has con- tinued and is continuing to grow. People are now willing to sweat in public. The most convenient and least expen- sive way for students to join the national health kick is in the Department of Health. Physical Education, and Recreation. Aero- bics classes are offered in multiple sections and filled quickly. Activity courses such as Weight Training, Tennis, Basic Movement and Swimming also fill up very rapidly. Department Head Dr. Mike Livingston said that in the last five or six years the department has moved toward individual activities such as aerobics and racquetball and away from team sports. " It ' s what the students want, " Living- ston said. " People just want to exercise. Students in particular are aware of their bodies and themselves. They want to feel good and look good. " Livingston said that the number of non-majors taking courses beyond the re- quirements has increased dramatically in a five-year period. The department ascribes to the " Well- ness " concept: that is. the idea that the individual is responsible personally for his own health and makes daily decisions that affect his life and fitness. Livingston said that physical fitness is definitely moving away from the " dumb jock " image of the past. " Intelligent people understand the importance of the totality of mind, spirit and body, " he said. Several (JNA faculty members are well known for their health-and-exercise con- sciousness. Sophomore Emily Clemmons and freshman Rosemary Speegle are both non- majors who take P.E. classes for enjoyment. " We get a lot out of it, " said Clem- mons. " I might get sore, but I always feel great when 1 leave. " Clemmons and Speegle had both tak- en aerobics classes outside the university and said that the department ' s classes were much better. " The instructors were very concerned about their students, " Speegle said. " They want to make sure that you ' re getting a good workout but that you don ' t do too much. They tell you the right way to do everything and explain about heart rates and want to know if you have any problems that should be watched. They ' re very care- ful. " Clemmons added that the instructors are very particular about stretching and warming up before working out to prevent torn muscles. " I ' ll probably keep taking P.E. classes as long as I ' m here, " she said, " just for me. " Activity courses are not the only thing that the P.E. Department has to offer. There is also the professional component which provides training for teachers, coaches, health instructors, recreation experts, and in the future, fitness specialists. The Fitness Specialist is a new con- cept that the department is developing. A person in this course of study would be trained for work in health clubs, cardiac and surgical rehabilitation programs and indus- trial fitness programs. Studies have shown that a healthy, fit- ness-oriented worker is more productive and fitness programs in industry are big business. The reputation of the department is known statewide. In the last three years not one Physical Education graduate has failed to pass the state teachers competency ex- ams. " Our individual scores are above the state average, " Livingston said. He does not see any sign of an end to the physical awareness trend in the coun- try. Livingston said that people have begun to see health and fitness as part of their everyday lives. " Every indicator shows that wellness is here to stay. " PUMPING THAT IRON in his weight training class.

Physical Education 77 to school Area educators continue to learn about new teaching tools and strategies by attending Northwest Alabama Regional Inservice Education Center workshops at Kilby Lab School by Wendy Woodfin It is a dedicated teacher who is in school willingly on a Friday afternoon at four o ' clock. About 40 such teacher consul- tants registered at Kilby School on Friday, Sept. 6, for a teacher training program sponsored by the Northwest Alabama Re- gional Inservice Education Center (NAR- lEC). In her welcoming address. Dr. Azalia Francis, Dean of the School of Education and NARIEC project director, cautioned participants to watch for " tangible, specif- ic " methods used by the speakers in drama- tizing good and bad teaching methods. Dr. Lou B. Marshal, Aerospace Educa- tion Specialist from NASA ' s George C. Mar- shall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, il- lustrated her warning. He hesitated be- tween speaking from the stage or the floor, began with some " daffynitions, " about the teaching consultant ' s job, dawdled with a box while discussing attention problems, and repeatedly changed subjects. " It is so easy for some teachers to keep the light of understanding glowing in stu- dents, but some teachers unintentionally defeat their own purpose, " he said. " Statistically, teachers ask a question then wait only seven-tenths of one second for an answer when three full seconds gives more time for insight. And if your mind doesn ' t question itself, you can ' t learn. " After dinner, humorist and essayist Charles Mullenix of Tupelo, Miss., enter- tained the teachers with some down-home style stories to teach the principal of caring for others. " To enjoy living teaches more about life than any money you could spend, " he said. Concluding the workshop was a dis- cussion, led by Dr. Francis, of different teaching tools and methods. " Teachers must combine talent, enthu- siasm, practice, and extra preparation to convey their message, " said Dr. Francis. " " And their message is concern for others. " Several other teacher training work- shops were held throughout the year by the In-Service Center, a product of the Alabama Education Reform System instituted two years ago by the State Legislature. " We feel that we are setting the pace for in-service centers and that we are taking the lead now, " said Dr. Earl Gardner, In-Ser- vice activities coordinator. During the summer, about 5500 teach- ers from 15 northwest Alabama school sys- tems attended the newly established NAR- IEC Teacher Training Center on campus, according to Gardner. " The comments have been over- whelmingly positive, " he said. " " The main comment is, " Give us more of the same! ' " WORKING on his alphabet, Rob Gardner, a student at Kilby Elementary School, is aided by Rob Sparkman, a student teacher at the lab school. After graduation. Sparkman and other area teachers can continue their education in educating through the In-Service Center on campus.

McCammon told a large audience of students and community guests. " Most people think the most important writers lived hundreds of years ago. That ' s not true. " The purpose of the second annual Writers Conference was to shorten the gap between writers and readers. Tackling the theme " Why 1 Write And How " were best- selling authors McCammon, Jesse Hill Ford, and Wayne Greenhaw. Ford, the author of the 1960s hit " The Liberation of Lord Byron Jones, " delivered the conference ' s keynote address. " There ' s a world of talent out there, " he said of aspir- ing writers, " but it also takes determina- tion, encouragement, and a lot of hard work. " " Lord Byron Jones " was a controver- sial novel illuminating racism in the New South. " It was like living in a war zone, " Ford said of that decade. Ford said his inspi- ration for the book came from an unso lved murder in Tennessee, where he presently lives. While several white friends of his were angered by the book, " 1 didn ' t lose a single black friend. " The movie version of the novel was shown as part of the conference and drew a large attendance. Investigative reporter Wayne Green- haw, an Alabama native and current editor of ALABAMA magazine, summed up his feelings about writing: " It ' s one thing to think a lot and talk about writing. But actu- ally writing is a different matter. " Greenhaw ' s credits include " Elephants in the Cottonfields: Ronald Reagan and the ALABAMA MAGAZINE Editor Wayne Greenhaw (with writer Robert R. McCammon) responds to a question on his controversial bool " Flying High: In- side Big-Time Drug Smuggling. " " It ' s like a mystery story, with a detective going from lead to lead to lead. " said Greenhaw. New Republican South, " and his controver- sial " Flying High: Inside Big-Time Drug Smuggling. " The latter took up over four years of his life as he investigated all as- pects of drug smuggling, from the distribu- tors to the DEA men. Greenhaw ' s field of expertise is non- fiction, but the journalist occasionally turns to fiction for exercise. " I ' ll always consider myself a reporter, " he said. " But writing fiction can be the best practice for writing non-fiction. " Birmingham-native Robert R. McCam- mon has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the field of horror. Three of his novels, " They Thirst, " " Mystery Walk, " and his recent " Usher ' s Passing " have sold millions of copies. McCammon defends the genre with re- ferences to Edgar Allen Poe and the Old English tale of Beowulf. " Horror touches an elemental part of all of us, " said McCam- mon. " Horror may be the literature of the 80s. You can use the trappings of horror to say something about human nature. " McCammon illustrated his point by reading the prologue to " Usher ' s Passing, " where Edgar Allen Poe appears in a pivotal flashback. " By and large 1 don ' t like horror mov- ies, " McCammon said in a question-answer session following the reading. " The slash- and-splatter movies do a disservice to true horror. To me, shadows on the wall are far more frightening. " The Writers Conference was con- ceived tiiree years ago to stimulate and en- courage teachers of writing as well as professionals and aspiring writers. Sponsored by the English Club and Sigma Tau Delta, under the auspices of the Department of English, the conference is planning to grow more and more each year. Judging from this year ' s guests and popu- lar turnout, the Writers Conference will have no choice but to expand in the future. A PRESS CONFERENCE for writers Jesse Hill Ford, Wayne Greenhaw, and Robert R. McCammon gave area media an opportunity to interview the speakers at the English Club Sigma Tau Delta English De- partment sponsored Writers Conference. University English professors Brynda Musgrove and Jack Kingsbury were also on hand at the media event. Ushers Passing ANoivlknkAukrdMuitayMik Robert R.

" To most people, it can be a very misleading word, calling to mind im- ages of fat ladies in Viking lielmets bran- dishing swords and shields, shattering glass (and eardrums) every time they open their mouths. But there is another side to opera. Thanks to Dr. Sue Ellen Teat and he r spring Opera Workshop class, many people are learning to appreciate and in some cases, actually like comic opera. The second annual Opera Workshop presented a double bill of comic operas Sunday afternoon, March 31, and Monday night, April 1, at Kilby Auditorium. The production of Mozart ' s classical one-act " The Impressario " centered on the competition between two prima donna so- pranos for top billing in an opera company. Playing the leading roles of Madam Qoldentrill and Miss Silverpeal at the Sun- day matinee were Linda Young and Melissa Richie. Karen Casey and Kathleen Holley took over these roles at the Monday night performance. Rounding out the cast of " The Impres- sario " were Vicki Pike, Larry Sneed, Mark Hall, David Russell, and Jeff Gilbreath. Twentieth-century American Compos- er Marc Bucci ' s jazzy version of the folk- song " Sweet Betsy from Pike " was the sec- ond comic opera presented. Leading the cast as Betsy and Ike werf Melissa Glaister and Richard Welborn or March 31 and Shelia Ledbetter and Larr; Sneed on April 1. Also included in the cas were Richard Welborn, Kayle Hardin, anc Donna Gregg. As a finale the entire Opera Workshop class joined for " The Grasshopper, " a com ic opera for children. All proceeds from the performances plus donations by area businesses, wer« given to the university ' s Opera Scholarship fund, which annually awards scholarships to deserving campus artists. SENIOR JEFF GILBREATH watches a costumed re- hearsal and waits for his turn to perform. Gilbreath, an applied voice major from Mt.

With a stage for a classroom and applause for the finals, Theatre 410 is an out-of-the-ordinary class experience. Preparing for that final means weeks of planning and blocking and designing a set and rehearsing and finding just the right props and costumes and furniture and sound effects. It means directing a one-act play complete with set, lighting, make-up and audience. It means choosing a play and reading it over and over until every line and movement is as familiar to you as your own name. Casting the best people for the roles no matter how badly your best friend wants the lead. The directing class also experienced rushing from " Pippin " rehearsals to their own rehearsals at midnight or one a.m. and squeezing precious rehearsal time in be- tween classes and work schedules and oth- er productions and obligations. It meant work. The class is offered in the spring to theatre students who have completed coursework in acting, lighting, set design and production. The semester ' s work cul- minates in a performance that is open to the public — the final exam. Anna Eastep ' s production of the Sam Shepard play " Fool For Love " opened the One-Act Festival. The play is a disturbing tragedy of a young woman caught in a pas- sionate love hate relationship with her half- brother. Jayne Anne Miller gave a powerful performance in the lead role of May. Clark Perry made his university debut with his excellent interpretation of her brother Ed- die, while Richard Welborn supplied a com- ic counterpoint as May ' s confused date. Bill Cofield served as both a narrator and a char- acter, as Eddie and May ' s father. The use of a simplistic set and Springsteen music car- ried out the motif of despair in this first-rate production. Jennifer Katechis followed " Fool For Love " with another controversial piece, " The Dutchman. " Written by the radical Imamu Amiri Baka, the play is a strong interracial portrait of a bizarre white wom- an whose favorite pastime is provoking, se- ducing, and murdering young black men on the subway. Tonya Russell was the crazed Lula, who harassed an unsuspecting John W a Harris as Clay. The second night began with director Kevin Hammond ' s adaptation of Mary Shel- ley ' s classic, " Frankenstein. " Terry Pace . was the mad Dr. Victor Frankenstein and ;■ Grant Lovett his unwilling accomplice Hen-!.- ry. Gary Jenkins ' interpretation of the crea-l ture avoided the inevitable cliches of theB role. Tim Day appeared in the famous butW all too brief role of the old blind man who befriends the monster. Elizabeth Ragsdaleii_ was the scientist ' s doomed financee. The final play was a cutting from Neili Simon ' s " God ' s Favorite. " Directed by Tony) Holzer, the play is the story of a modern-day) wtfl ' Job, Joseph Benjamin, played by Jim AM len. Joe Dress was Sydney, the none-too-) adept messenger from God, and Mikei Green was Benjamin ' s uptight son. Preparing for final exams usually; means hours of organizing scribbled notes,; studying with friends until the librarians run ' you out, and cramming until dawn the night before the test. That ' s the typical exam week pattern for most students — unless you happened to be a member of Theatre 410. ALONE IN THE DESERT.

Students who take the three-hour test, which assesses their abilities and offers insights into what fields they are best suited for, are also fur- nished with a complete list of graduate schools offering programs in those areas. Another service that was added with the new space was the university ' s free tu- toring service. Once located in Flowers Hall, the program was moved to Collier, where the atmosphere is more conducive to studying. Other library resources on campus outside of Collier include the Learning Re- source Center on the first floor of EMB, which contains curriculum materials and a children ' s literature collection.

College professors can be formidable creatures at times, but don ' t believe everything you hear— tough teachers are human, too by Michele Savage Sometimes, I wonder if college profes- sors spend as much time talking about their students as students spend gossiping about their professors. Any student can testify that there is an extremely efficient grapevine flourishing on campus, and teachers are a favorite top- ic. Really. We talk about them before class and after class, over lunch and over home- work, during exams and at registration. Es- pecially at registration. " Don ' t take Cain for aerobics. They don ' t call her ' Killer Cain ' for nothing! " " Don ' t take Crawford for promotion. He puts trick questions on his tests. " " Don ' t take Dr. Foster for English. He ' s tough. " it ' s almost as if there is an unwritten list of " tough teachers " circulating through- out the student body, a self-perpetuating list that passes from one class to the next. Any freshman who has been in school for only a few weeks can recite at least part of the litany. While there are some constants, the list of tough teachers varies from one per- son to another. Such variations are prob- ably accounted for by individual exper- iences and opinions. Judging from the rea- sons students give for calling certain instructors " tough, " the word means differ- ent things to different people. " Ask any accounting students — Aar- on Lynch is the toughest teacher on cam pus, " senior Mike Mashburn, an accounting major. " He picks out the most trivial things to test you on instead of the really impor tant things. " " Dr. Allen (math) is the hardest teacher I ' ve ever had, " said Bryan Hill, a junior so- cial work major. " He gives the hardest cal- culus problems on his exams, things he doesn ' t even go over in class. " " Mrs. Powers in English is real sweet, but she ' s a hard teacher, " said Rhonda Hay- good, a junior in fashion merchandising. " She gets really picky when she grades pa- pers. " Many students talk about their tough teachers the way marines in boot camp talk about their drill sergeants. Some people get downright paranoid and develop acute cases of that-nasty-old-art-teacheris-just- jealous-of-my-awesome-talent-and-that ' s- why-he ' s-being-so-tough-on-me syndrome. Certainly there are cases where instructors allow personal feelings against students to interfere in their professional relationships with them, but such instances are surely (hopefully) rare. In some circumstances, people don ' t seem to mind tough teachers. " I don ' t mind a class being tough as long as I ' m learning something, " said junior Brett Davis, a photography and journalism major. " But I don ' t like teachers who go out of their way to make things seem difficult just on principle. " There are even a few students with a completely different perspective. Cathy Saint, a senior majoring in CIS and manage- ment, actually prefers tough teachers. " A lot of times, you learn more when you make a bad grade in a tough teacher ' s class than you learn when you get a good grade from an easy teacher, " Saint said. " Tough teachers are usually good for you because they ' re the ones who really make you think. " A LINGUIST and folklorist of national renown. Dr. C. William Foster, Head of the English and journalism department, is renowned on campus as a tough teacher. Students are known to study for weeks for his historical linguistics exams.

Tough Teachers 93 No simple task The Values Colloquium encouraged people to be aware of their values and to keep examining and reaffirming them by Michele Savage The focus was on choices. For four days in the midst of a busy semester, people made time in their sched- ules to attend lectures and seminars and to participate in panel discussions. It was all part of " Choices, " the university ' s second annual Values Colloquium. Subtitled " Self and Others in Ameri- can Society in the 1980s, " the colloquium ran from Sept. 30 through Oct. 3. Over 4000 people from the campus and the Shoals area took advantage of this " framework within which the university and community can meet and exchange ideas, " according to professor of English Dr. Patricia Chandler, Convocations Commit- tee chairman and convenor of the Values Colloquium Steering Committee. Late in 1984, an advisory board of over 100 members from the campus and the community was formed " to let us know what people wanted to hear in the area of values, " Chandler said. " What kept coming up was the issue of finding our real selves and finding out what our values really are. " Sessions dealt with such diverse to- pics as heroic medicine, drug and alcohol abuse, the American work ethic, education trends, male and female sexual identity, U.S. foreign relations, corporate narcis- sism, and Mark Twain ' s " Huckleberry Finn. " Chandler said that the purpose of the " Choices " programs was " to encourage ev- eryone on campus and in the community to be aware of the values that they hold and to keep examining and reaffirming them. " In the colloquium ' s keynote address, Dr. Christopher Lasch discussed " The Cul- ture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations. " Lasch, a history professor at New York ' s University of Rochester, is no strang- er to this topic. He is the author of the best- selling " The Culture of Narcissism " and several other books. " I try to describe society by trying to characterize the sense of self it tends to produce, the beliefs it lives by . . . the val- ues that seem to be present in that world view, " Lasch said to the packed Norton Auditorium crowd. He expressed concern about the feel ings of disconnection with the past and un certainty about the future that seem to pre vail in our society. According to Lasch Americans indulge in an " orgy of escap ism " and " stand aloof from the rest of the world, but it won ' t last forever. Sooner or later there will be a confrontation. " Although primarily funded by Convo- cations, many colloquium sessions and speakers were co-sponsored by area busin- esses and public institutions. " This is a reflection of the tremendous community support we ' ve had, " said Chan- FORMER ADVISER to President Reagan and first black graduate of the university, Wendell Wilkie Gunn appeals to students in the " Ethics of Success " audience not to believe that every great thing has already been done. " The opportunities are there, " said Gunn. " It ' s up to you to take advantage of them. " Other panel members included moderator Bud Smith, university marketing professor; area banker Charles Peery; and local executive Emerson Priest. dler, " There are other values colloquiums in the nation, but ours is unique, " she said. " Most others stay on a philosophical l evel . . . but we also provide an opportunity for the expression and observation of deeply personal values. " It was an opportunity that many peo- ple seized, an opportunity to consider and to question, to listen and to discuss. " Nobody ever said forming your own values would be easy, " associate editor Sandy Jackson said in an editorial in The Flor-Ala that week. " Everyone is constant- ly trying to renovate and revamp his values, and discussing it serves the sole purpose of making you aware of the choices you have. " SUCCESS is determined by the individual as well as society, according to local business executive Emer- son Priest, member of the " Ethics of Success " panel. " Society views success as power, money, and title, " he said. " But if you call success happiness, those three things probably won ' t provide it. GItimately. it has to do with self and family.

Time, dedica tion, responsibility, and last but not least, money, go into the making of a university and its policies. The Board of Trustees, ap- pointed by Governor Wallace, combines their time, talents and ideas to keep the university in order. The board meets annually on the sec ond Monday of June with special meetings held occasionally upon the call of Governor Wallace, who serves as president ex officio. Gene Sanderson serves as president pro tempore, residing over the meetings in Gov- ernor Wallace ' s absence. In a special meeting held in the fall. Dr. Guillot said that although the university is not out of its " vestiges of segregation " law suit, he saw no reason for the university to be found guilty. " The University of North Alabama has scrupulously avoided any vestige of dis- crimination on the basis of race in any of its functions or activities, " said Guillot.

Guillot ' s statement said that the uni versily had " been appropriated operational funds at a much lower level than the rea- ligned plaintiff institutions even though its enrollment was much higher. " At this meeting the board also consid- ered Vice-President Dr. Roy Stevens ' 1986- 87 budget request to the executive and leg- islative branches of the Alabama state gov- ernment. Several things were covered in this budget proposal besides the usual fur- niture, equipment, building and grounds im- provements. Included were new lights and dimmers for Norton Auditorium ( " to bring that [Norton] up to what it should have been, " said Stevens). Also included in the request was the long awaited installation of elevators in both Keller Hall and Floyd Science Build- ing, and chair lifts in Bibb Graves to aid the handicapped. But the major allotment of funding, reaching an estimated $849,970.00, will go toward a new campus telecommunications system. Stevens said that the current switchboard is full, and that a technician would visit the campus to examine the fea- Bob Crisp sability of establishing a new telephone sys-l tem. " We hope we can become the tele- phone company for the students, " said| Guillot. One of the campus improvements I soon to be completed, is a " university cen- ter " that will be adjacent to and join the] present Student Gnion Building. The board! passed a resolution authorizing the expend!- 1 ture of the 1 985 bond monies for the center. " I think this is a fine way to use it [the] bond money], " said Guillot. " This is going] to belong to everybody. " Members of the Board, in addition to | Gov. Wallace and State Superintendent of Education Wayne Teague, include The Hon. Billy Don Anderson, Sheffield; The Hon. Charles L. Beard, Jr., Sheffield; The Hon. John T. Bulls, Jr., Florence; The Hon. Lon- nie Flippo, Florence; The Hon. Alex Nelson, Jr., Florence; The Hon.

Board of Trustees 99 Executive Status Expanding and improving the academics and the physical facilities of the university are the goals of the man who sits in the big chair Dr. Robert M. Guillot, president of the university since April 1, 1972, has endeav- ored to provide a center for individual im- provement. Dr. Guillot, commonly known on cam- pus as " Clncle Bob, " has proven himself as a capable leader and has become a father figure to the students. Dr. Guillot and his wife Patty were mar- ried on September 1, 1947. The couple has three children. " Patty has been very supportive to me and the university by hosting dinner recep- tions, arranging school activities and ac- companying me at school functions, " said Dr. Guillot. In addition to maintaining a strong sense of family cohesiveness. Dr. Guillot has helped pave the way to curricular and extracurricular expansions. " Some of my current goals are contin- ually improving academics and physical facilities, " said Dr. Guillot. Dr. Guillot also plans on the expansion to the Student Gnion Building, the renova- tion of Wesleyan Hall, the installation of ele- vators in Keller Hall and Floyd Science Building, and a chair elevator in Bibb Graves Hall. Dr. Guillot cited the expanded FIELDING QUESTIOMS during press conferences is only one of the many tasks Dr. Robert M. Guillot must carry out. Here t e is stiown at an announce- ment concerning the establishment of a scholarship from the Northwest Alabama Press Association. by Charlie Montgomery; academic ofference as his most significant achievement since his first semester as the president. The university, under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Guillot, now has the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Nursing and the School of Business. Also added into the curriculum were commercial music and photography. " The wider variety of education has allowed growth in the university and we want it to keep growing, " said Dr. Guillot. " The expansion of men ' s athletics and the inception of women ' s athletics have fos- tered highly competitive athletic programs at UNA, " said Dr. Guillot. The Greek system has been a very suc- cessful accomplishment during Dr. Guil- lot ' s term. Dr. Guillot related his success to past experiences as mayor of Vestavia, a lawyer, an insurance salesman, and a World War II and Korean war veteran. " These experiences have helped me evaluate, analyze and put into perspective what I should do as Chief Executive Officer of the University of North Alabama. They have given me the ability to deal with teach- Robert Lawler ers, students and the constituents around the state, " said Dr. Guillot. Dr. Guillot enjoys the air of August ex- citement when students and teachers begin a fresh start on academics and extracurri- cular activities. " I enjoy watching students mature through their years here and living on cam- pus affords me the opportunity to remain closely involved with the students and staff, " said Dr. Guillot. " I would like to see the students gain a high sense of ethical conduct towards fam- ily, church and business while they are here, providing them with a basis to com- pete effectively in the real world, " said Dr. Guillot. Dr. Guillot has been concerned with people and academics during his fourteen years as president. The achievements and goals of the university have been possible through Guillot ' s leadership and strong character. " I think the university slogan should be changed to read ' UNA, where the educa- tion of students comes first, ' " said Dr. Guillot. i " PATTY HAS BEEN very supportive to me and the university. " said Dr. Robert M. Guiilot of his wife for 39 years. ADMIMISTRATIVE ASSISTANT to Dr. Guiilot. Nan- cy Trowbridge has proved her worthiness several times over in planning meetings and special ceremo- nies. PRESIDENT DR. ROBERT M. GOILLOT is presented with a book and a pictorial map of Sheffield. England, by the Lord Mayor of that city, the Honorable Mrs. Dorothy Walton. Walton was in the area to help cele brate the Sheffield (Alabama) Centennial. Dr Guiilot 101 Administrative Decisions The administrators consider the sum that makes up the whole in catering to the needs of the university Just as the university caters to the needs of a large number of students who are all going in different directions, its adminis- trators cater to the needs of the university. And UNA seems to go in many different directions too. There are three key administrators who report directly to the president and take care of different aspects of university life. Dr. Roy Stevens is in charge of finan- cial affairs: the planning, construction, and renovation of campus buildings, and sup- portive services such as the office of finan- cial aids and the security office. " I have nothing to do with the aca- demic side or the student affairs side, " said Stevens. " The general administration of the university is my responsibility. " Stevens was a professor here for 14 years before taking his present position, and said that he has enjoyed both facets of his experience on campus. " I enjoyed them both, they ' re both nec- essary and both make a contribution to the university, " said Stevens. " They ' re differ- ent. I enjoyed teaching and I ' ve enjoyed do- ing what I ' ve been doing for the last several years. " DR. ROY S. STEVENS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT bi Brett Davis As part of what he ' s been doing, Ste vens serves on the university executive committee with the president and the other administrators, where they keep each other advised on the happenings within their de- partments. " We ' re not a university of several parts, " said Stevens. " We ' re a university of several parts that make a total and if you deviate from that, you become less service oriented to the students and to the clients of the university. " As the comparative " new kid " in the administration. Dr. Eugene Jabker has al ready made his presence felt. Jabker, the dean of faculty and instruc tion, came to the university in 1984 from Illinois State, where he also served as an administrator. As the head of faculty and instruction, Jabker is in charge of " everything that is related to academic programs, " matters of curriculum, personnel, classroom instruc- tion, and faculty affairs. " Most of that, somehow or another, comes to this office either as a form of information or for some kind of decision to judicate matters that perhaps were not han- dled at those various levels, " said Jabker. DR. EUGENE JABKER DEAN OF FACULTY AND INSTRUCTION Jabker said that because he is " new or relatively new, " he has given himself an- other " job. " " I guess it ' s self imposed, and that is to be a kind of critic of the university and to look at things as I can and to make judg- ments about what I think should be changed and what shouldn ' t be changed and how, perhaps, they should be changed, and then pass those suggestions on. " Since coming to the university, Jabker has said that one of his goals is to improve scholarship among both faculty and stu- dents. " I ' m convinced that students, upon leaving here, will spend most of their lives communicating, and if they can ' t commu- nicate well, it makes no difference what their discipline is . . . they won ' t do a very good job. " And, because CJMA is " where students come first, " Dr. Daniel Leasure, the dean of student affairs, has a lot going on to keep him busy. Leasure, who is in his third year at his post, said that his office deals with every student organization on campus, and most student activities. Leasure said that he works with the DR. DANIEL R. LEASURE DEAN OF STUDENT AFFAIRS Student Government Association and the Inter-Fraternity Council on a day-today ba- sis, and with other student organizations as the need arises. " On a day-to-day basis I spend time making decisions about student activities, " said Leasure. Leasure works with campus groups not only as an adviser, but also as a planner. He works on student programs with such groups as the Placement Center, the Stu- dent Development Center, the Student Ac- tivities Board, the Student Health Center, and the recreation department. Leasure said that a lot of students and community members view his position as a sort of " super campus father, " and as a way of access to the university. " There are just a myriad of things that come into this office because it ' s a place to go when you don ' t know where to tap in (to UNA), " said Leasure. " I talk to any student who comes into the office. " As part of his campus planning, Lea- sure said he keeps his eye on national trends, and tries to relate them to the stu- dents to keep their activities up-to-date and safe. But above all, being the dean of stu- dent affairs involves working with students. " It ' s dealing with people, and resolving problems, " said Leasure. " That ' s about it in a nutshell. " WHEN THE BROADCASTING Club nimed the video " We are the Ones. " (their take-off of " We are the World " ), faculty and students weren ' t the only ones with something to sing about. Dr. Eugene Jabker also made a musical appearance in the video. DR. DANIEL LEASURE speaks to a crowd gathered for the Powers Hall ribbon cutting ceremony. Powers has been remodeled recently to house the National Panhellenic Council sororities. Bob Crisp BEING IN CHARGE of the financial affairs of the university is only a small part of Dr. Roy Stevens ' responsibilities. " The general administration of the university is my responsibility. " said Stevens. Supervision Plus lit anil c have alio duced. " 11 ' " so we ' ll I Maintaining the attitude of ' where students come first, ' the five deans not only supervise their respective schools, they take an active part in their improvement b ; Clark Perry Along with the usual responsibilities of supervising student curriculum, the univer- sity ' s five deans each undertook new duties in efforts to better the campus atmosphere. Dr. Joseph C. Thomas, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, said the new- ly-introduced preregistration system pro- vided a major challenge, especially since the school is the largest — composed of nearly 60 percent of the student body. " It was a gigantic task to try to put together programs in such short a time, " said Thom- as. " But our people accepted the chal- lenge and did extremely well, " he said. Without exception, every student en- rolled is exposed to the Arts and Sciences curriculum at some time in his education. " A broad liberal studies is basic to all stu- dents, " he explained, " and the establish- ment of advisement for students is the most significant thing that has happened. " There are 16 departments within the school, each with many majors and options — a massive collection of varied courses to keep track of. " We ' re constantly striving to improve, " Thomas said, " but we already have an excellent program. " In August Dr. Azalia Francis became acting dean of the School of Education. After undergoing several accreditation re- views and reorganizing, Francis said the school " is reclaiming the leadership role the college once enjoyed in the state and nation. " Implementing a broader sociocultural program is just one of the tasks Francis has been involved with this year. " We ' re also involved in many research projects, " she said. " Our goal is to produce the best possi- ble teachers we can — people who know their theory and can teach students from six to 16. " The School of Business concerns itself with preparing the student for a career in the business world, but it also aids the busi- ness world through the Small Business De- velopment Center. Dean Lawrence Conwill supervises the Center along with his usual duties. " We offer services on a no-charge basis to small businesses in our service area, " Conwill said, " consulting with any- where from 300 to 500 businesses per year. " The SBDC is hooked up to a statewide computer system that keeps up with all government contracts that open in the area. " We notify businesses of opening con- tracts so they can bid on them, " he said. There is also an international trade repre- sentative who assists in developing con- tracts for overseas trade. Dr. Frenesi Wilson, dean of the School of Mursing, said her school still boasts its 100 percent employment record. " Recruit- ers say they ' re talking to more and more people who are interested in the program, " she said, " so we ' ll continue having a quality program. " DR. JOSEPH C. THOMAS DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF ARTS SCIENCES MR. LAURENCE R. CONWILL DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS DR. FRENESI P. WILSON DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS The School of Nursing has added eight continuing education courses, and its flexi- ble and creative scheduling capabilities have allowed Saturday courses to be intro- duced. " It ' s been successful, Wilson said, " so we ' ll be looking at what the students are interested in as far as scheduling is con- cerned. " Dr. Fred Heath, dean of Library Ser- vices, said his staff is learning to fill their new Collier Library complex. " One of the most sweeping things we ' re w orking on is switching from a man- ual service system to an automated one, " said Heath, which means soon books will be checked out with machines that use a laser system similar to that in many supermar- ket checkout lines. Putting a bar code on student l.D. ' s will aid the staff " in telling us which sections are being used so we can respond to the needs of the university. " Heath also said the library ' s catalog system will soon be upgraded to computer terminals that can be placed anywhere on campus such as in dorms. An increase in funding has allowed the library to acquire more subscriptions to many journals and periodicals, and a music library has been created in the Fine Arts Complex. " In our collection, you can find any- thing you want, " Heath said. " We have a very good, if not excellent, library. " IN A SHIFT of positions in the School of Education, Dr. Azalia Francis has been named acting dean of the school. Francis will continue direction of the North- west Alabama Regional inservice Education Center, which this summer held a Teacher Training Center for Northwest Alabama school systems. According to Francis the Inservice Centers are " to help teachers become better teachers. " DR. AZALIA FRANCIS DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AT A LONCHEON MEETING for Geography majors and minors.

A carnival atmosphere is present in the beautiful city and for the 18th year, so is Dr. Max Gart- man. Gartman, head of the Department of Foreign Languages, has given many stu- dents the opportunity to tour Europe since 1967, the year of his first trip. By schedul- ing classes, tours and hours of free time carefully, he gives his little band of tourists a most enriching European experience. The 1985 group was made up of stu- dents from Jacksonville State, Vanderbilt, Auburn, Montevallo, Sanford and UNA. The agenda gave them four days in Paris, weekend trips to Spain, Italy, Switzerland and a chance to visit Holland and Belgium on the way back. After attending French classes during the morning, the students were free to relax on the gorgeous beach of the French Riv- iera. Nightfall found them enjoying tours of the surrounding city. Students toured the old portion of Nice, and found narrow streets filled with romantic outdoor restaurants and a multi- tude of musicians. The train carried them into Monte Carlo for an evening. There, the firework competitions, bands and casinos gave them yet another taste of European night life. " We had no serious problems this time, " said Gartman. " There was, however, a funny train experience one night. " Gart- man said that an elderly lady on the trip had decided to sit in another compartment, away from the excited students. She fell asleep and awoke in northern Italy the next day. She returned to Nice and told the oth- ers, " Well, I did learn a little Italian any- way. " While in high school. Max Gartman ex- perienced a summer on the French Riviera as an exchange student. After graduation he attended Samford University on a tennis scholarship and graduated with a major in French. He received his masters in French and a Ph.D. in romance languages from the University of Alabama. He taught at Samford for 17 years as head tennis coach and later as head of the French department. Gartman said that the European trip is a valuable changing experience. " Most stu- dents who go look back on it as something that changes their lives. It ' s not just an ex- perience, it ' s a profound experience, " he said. He talked about the number of people he ' s met over the years. His desk harbors an address book containing people from 30 dif- ferent countries that he corresponds with. Speaking French is not a requirement for Gartman ' s yearly trip. The group rate is inexpensive and the tour guide is obviously experienced. Nineteen hundred eighty six will bring even more beautiful nights to the French Riviera, and without a doubt, Max Gartman and his American gang will be there too.

Nursing Academic Gypsy b ; Elizabeth Ragsdale Through the worldwide travel and ex- periences of Dr. Thomas Thompson, stu- dents learn about human social behavior. " I ' ve led the life of an academic gypsy, " said Thompson, associate professor of soci- ology. Thompson received his B.A. from Fair- mont State College and his M.A. from West Virginia University. His three years of mili- tary service included active duty in Fort Knox, Kentucky; Fifth General Hospital, Stuttgart, West Germany; and Second Field Hospital, Orleans, France. The army gave him valuable exper- iences that helped mold his career and also paid for most of his education. After a mas- ter ' s in sociology and demography was in his hands, Thompson plunged into a teach- ing career. His first positions were at small private universities. Thompson said that UNA has a special quality in which the others were lacking. " Students are noticeably polite, re- spectful and very inquisitive in the class- room, " he said. Students, after completing a course with Dr. Thompson, seem to have a great respect for his witty intelligence and effec- tive teaching method. " I have never thought so much about our society and its problems. " said sopho- more Melody Bishop. " He really has made me think. " Student participation is a major factor in his classroom and heated discussions de- velop into a great learning experience. Stu- dent Martha Tate said, " By determining your opinion on a certain topic you learn about yourself as you teach others. " The well-liked professor, when not in class, enjoys traveling with his family and working in his garden. He also practices the dutch art form, tile painting, as one of his favorite hobbies. Through extensive research and an evident gift for teaching college students, Dr. Thomas Thompson has made a great contribution and lasting impression on GNA. The university is lucky that this " aca- demic gypsy " has decided to settle in Flor- ence, Alabama. ARTHUR PETTUS JAMES Assistant Professor, Economics CHARLOTTE W.

LEE Supervising Teacher Kilby School High Flying by Clark Perry Dr. Marlon Rico may teach marketing classes, but his head is in the clouds. Rico instructs the Flying Ground School, the stepping stone for people who wish to become aviators. The six-week course, part of the university ' s program of Continuing Education, concentrates on class instruction for beginning pilots. Rico has taught the course for a num- ber of years. He is an FAA certified basic, advanced, and instrument ground instruc- tor, and he was awarded the Gold Seal for outstanding flight instruction. With over 4,500 hours of flight time, Rico has been noted by aviation officials for his flawless safety record and his outstand- ing flight training methods. Rico said that the students in his classes come from varied backgrounds — everyone from plumbers to lawyers. The one thing the students share is a yearning to fly. While the Flying Ground School may not give them the chance to sit immediately in the cockpit, it is a necessary first step in that direction. Course material covers radio commu- nication and navigation, cross country flight procedures, medical factors of flying, and weather conditions, among other things.

(After Hours by Jan Maxwell and Susi West Rick Thomason is a good example of a person burning the candle at both ends — successfully. Besides teaching fifteen semester hours and maintaining a family life, the CIS instructor finds time to make the six-hour drive to Middle Tennessee State University to take night classes each Monday night. He will graduate this spring with a Mas- ter of Science degree in Accounting Infor- mation Systems. In addition to his regular duties as a teacher, Thomason ' s activities on campus range from judging the womanless beauty pageant at Fall Fling to being an adviser to Phi Beta Lambda and the CIS organization. Being an adviser includes giving sup- port and leadership, plus helping the [groups with ideas for money making pro- ects. He is now working on getting the CIS club affiliated with the Data Processing Management Association. Thomason, who lives with his wife Shirley and daughter Tara in Russellville, enjoys his hectic schedule. Most of all, he enjoys teaching. " Any time a professor can see pro- gress in his students he naturally feels that he has made a contribution. When you first take a classroom of students who do not know how to program a computer, and at the end of the semester see them using a computer productively, you see the accom- plishment, " said Thomason. His advice to students is simple. " To boil it down to a few words — dependability and responsibility. Plan your time and be responsible for what you ' re supposed to do. " JAMICE G.

Livingston is active as a guest lecturer for many university, civic, and community organizations. Well Aware by Elizabeth Ragsdale The genius of physical fitness com- pletely enthralls an audience as he lectures on wellness. The speaker is Dr. Michael Liv- ingston, head of the department of Physical Education and Recreation and professor of health and physical education. Livingston joined the university staff in 1969. In addition to his teaching obliga- tions on campus, Livingston works as an adviser for the cardiac rehabilitation unit — located in the mental health center, near Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital. Livingston is a respected authority on exercise programs for heart patients. These patients, just recovering from heart sur- gery, need guidance when planning an exer- cise program. Livingston studies each case and prescribes a suitable fitness workout for the cardiac patient. He also presents different lectures on wellness to different organizations. He has spoken to such groups as Tennessee Valley Authority employees and contractors on nutrition and weight. " The man describes problems of fat people and skinny people and by the end we ' re all laughing and asking questions, " said one Livingston fan. " He made us real- ize that everyone has minor health prob- lems, and we shouldn ' t be ashamed to seek help, " he added. In his limited spare time, Livingston enjoys golfing and running. " I run at least 15 miles a week and hit the golf course on Saturdays, " he said. He also enjoys spend- ing time with his family and being active in his church. All of us need a little educated guid- ance on nutrition, weight and exercise pro- grams. Dr. Michael Livingston is doing his part to make the Shoals a more health con- scious and physically fit community. DR. GEORGE H. ROBINSON Head, Dept. of Psychology Professor, Psychology PATRICIA L.

The presentation took place during Richardson ' s retirement party in Keller Hall. ENJOYING AN EARLY SUMMER ' S DAY. Hob Richardson talks with senior Tammy Owens in the amphitheatre. Owens said that Richardson is known on campus as a person with a friendly smile who always has an extra moment to chat for awhile. Young at Heart b ; Bill Jamigan Affectionately known as Hob, " Cor- poral Henry Hobson Richardson retired this summer. The GNA security officer hung up his badge and holster Friday, June 28, after 14 years of service with the university. Two factors have kept him young, Richardson said. " In this job, we have to think like the kids are thinking. But the best thing has been the walking on this pretty campus. It kept my body built up, " he said. Richardson does not plan to go home to Greenhill and sit down. " I will stay busy. I don ' t have time to do all I want to, " he said with a smile. Busy is not going to be the word for it. For starters, he has two antique vehi- cles (a rare ' 57 cab-over Jeep and a ' 62 pickup truck) to restore and the work on a third (a 1949 Plymouth) to complete. He has already restored a 1951 Volkswagen bus. Besides restoring cars, he plans on buying and selling a few. Probably the most intriguing of his re- tirement plans is a hope to develop a new breed of small horses. He is on his way to this accomplishment with previous cross- breeding of a quarterhorse and a Shetland pony. If he cannot be found outside the house, he will likely be closeted away in his train room, where he has nine layouts of 60 sets of trains, from the largest to the small- est miniature trains. " I have got to clean those trains. It will take me a year just to clean and oil them, " he said. However, despite all Richardson ' s plans, it seems Geneva, his wife of 33 years, has a few plans for him. " She said I have to do KP now while she works, " the veteran of military kitchen patrol said with a laugh. DEBORAH K. LINDSEY Publications Assistant LEAWAIIA DENISE LITTLE Secretary.

The Army ' s evaluation concluded that this extraordinary staff member has gone far beyond the expectations of a normal secretary. " I love my work because I ' m not only a secretary but an adviser, a mother, and a friend to the cadets, " said Jones. Jones enjoys the atmosphere of her office, because it is relaxed and, as she said, the students and faculty in the department are " unusually interesting. " " I feel like I have travelled all over the world just listening to them tell stories about places they ' ve been stationed, " she said. Jones received a degree from Florence State in 1965 and later married a local resi- dent. She began part time at the university in 1969 and eventually became the first full- time department secretary on campus. She is the mother of two children. Holding the position of ROTC secre- tary demands an extra effort and immense loyalty. But, Patricia Jones has proven to her country, herself, and the Florence com- munity that she is indeed a woman of supe- rior performance. A RECEPTION honors Mrs. Patricia Jones as she receives a special commendation from head of the military science department, LTC Lester W. Rooker. The reception was held in the ROTC offices in the Wesleyan Annex. Well-wishers in attendance includ- ed Lisa Cochran, CRT Miguel Perez, MAJ Frank Green, and MSG Michael A. Mooney.

" Now is the time to create memories for the rest of your life, " said senior Anne LesHe Warren. But for some students the goal is much closer at hand. For Brett Davis, executive editor of The Flor-Ala, it was a matter of meeting weekly deadlines. For Alex WUhite, a deaf student, it was relying on an interpreter to assist him in his studies. And for others it was simply to have a passing GPA. But whether they were trying to communicate or trying to make the grades, they were Filling a Gap in their Hves.

" At 21, the Lawrenceburg, Tenn. senior is already on her way to accomplishing that childhood dream. Last March, Morphew traveled to the Hackney Literary Awards ceremonies in Birmingham, where she met and mingled with hundreds of poets and fiction writers from across the country, and where she was awarded a third place $100 prize in the national competition. " I keep thinking. ' They ' ve made some kind of mistake, ' " Morphew said, smiling and shaking her head. The only Southeastern writer to re- ceive a prize in this year ' s Hackney poetry contest. Morphew placed third behind a Florida Rhodes scholar and a member of the University of Iowa ' s prestigious writers ' workshop. Two of her winning trilogy of poems, " Mother " and " Walking in Winter, " were published in the campus literary magazine, " Lights and Shadows. " Also appearing in the magazine was " The Fruit of Knowl- edge, " Morphew ' s short story, which won third place in the university ' s literary con- test. N ft m Is 4 MIKE CORNELIUS.

Her goal is to teach in Europe, where she did her student teaching with the Consortium for Overseas Teaching in England this spring. How do her talents relate? Morphew wrote a novel for children and hopes to have it published. Her experience as book reviewer for The Flor-Ala, the campus newspaper, should give her an inside track on what publishers are looking for. Her experiences with the Hackney competition and " Lights and Shadows " have given Morphew a boost of self-confi- dence. " 1 don ' t think I ' ve ever felt so good as when I found out I was published. " she said.

Not long after Sandy Knight had asked herself this ques- tion, she had packed her bags for the sum- mer and was headed to the island of Guam. After two years of summer missionary work in Florida and Wyoming. Sandy again applied for mission work through the Bap- tist Student Union. After in-depth applica- tions and " interview weekend " in Shocco Springs (the Baptist Student Assembly of the state), she was pleased to learn she had been assigned to Tamuning. Guam. Sandy was the only student from the local BSG who was assigned to a foreign country. Her friends promised support and prayers and even gave her a nickname. " Guama Mama. " To learn more about her destination. Sandy made several trips to Collier Library searching for anything about Guam she could find. She spent a weekend in Rock- ville, Virginia at the Missionary Learning Center where she was given helpful infor- mation and even talked to someone who had recently been a missionary in Guam. So, with much preparation and prayer, Sandy headed out to Guam, the largest is- land of the Marianas Chain — a hot and humid island, made up of jungles, moun- tains, and beaches. In Tamuning Sandy served as a youth director at Calvary Baptist Church, whose members were mainly military Americans. She also worked with Bible school and backyard Bible clubs. " Being half way around the world made me realize that people are people wherever they are and they all have the same needs, " Sandy said. " One is the need for love. God taught me how to push myself aside and love with the only love He can supply — uncondition- al love. I saw how His love breaks down every barrier man could ever think about putting up. " — Brenda Grisham SANDY KNIGHT, a social work major from Florence, wears her " island dress " to show her friends what wom- en in Guam wear to fiestas. Her purse is a common purse in Guam made from the coconut tree and the walking tree.

" Clarence Johnson has just broken the Gulf South Conference record for ... , " cries the man in the pressbox as the crowd drowns him out with their cheers. This is a common occurance at Lion football games. " Something magic seems to happen when Clarence Johnson touches the foot- ball, " says a player on the sideline. The senior from Huntsville is contin- ually in the spotlight breaking Gulf South Conference as well as university records. Clarence holds QSC records for: average gain per rush in a game, touchdowns and points scored in a game, and most touch- downs in a season, as well as most points in a season. Included in the university records he holds are those for rushing and number of touchdowns scored. His stats seem even more impressive when it is noted that he has even out-scored other teams in the GSC by himself, and that he has averaged more points per game some opponents the team has played " Clarence has been a big cog in ouiil offensive machine, " said Head Coach Wayne Grubb. " He has the speed, quick- ness and cutting ability to be a great back and he is a threat from anywhere on the field, anytime he touches the football. " " Our offensive linemen know he ' s as quick as anybody in the country anc they ' re confident that when he touches the football, good things are going to happen. ' In a game where the outcome coulc mean the difference between making the NCAA playoffs, winning the Gulf South Conference championship and moving up in the national polls — or sitting at home at the end of the regular season — it ' s nice tc know we have a Clarence Johnson on our side. — Cathy Saint SYRENIA JONES.

Florence The students ' voice " Now that I ' ve been elected, I intend to see that my campaign promises are ful- filled, " said newly-elected SGA president Mark Sanderson. According to Sanderson, his platform centered on four issues: the student ' s voice to the administration, the services of the SGA, fair university funding, and apathy. Sanderson said that the Student Gov- ernment Association is the students ' voice to the administration. He also said that this voice needs to be made stronger. According to Sanderson, he meets pe- riodically with the administration to discuss and back up legislation passed by the SGA. As SGA president, Sanderson said that he is committed to striving continually to meet the students ' needs by providing such services as the Student Discount Program, Student Loan Program, Insurance Program, and the Refrigerator Rental Program, as well as other much-needed services. " No one is more concerned than I about the unfair state appropriations com- ing to UNA, " Sanderson said. He said that he fully intends for th«| SGA to continue to work with and supporT the lobbying efforts of the university. One of the major campaign issues seems to be student apathy. Sanderson saicJ that one of the best ways to combat studenil apathy is to develop a better mode of comf munication between the student body anc| the Student Government Association. Two things that Sanderson considers! instrumental in the fight against apathy arel the Vice-Presidential Task Force and thel newly-established House of Representa ' tives. The Vice-Presidential Task Force is el communication line developed for the sole] purpose of better communication between | the SGA senators and the student body. Sanderson said that he is in a goodi position to help the new House of Represen T tatives because he was instrumental in es| tablishing the House. — Melissa Grayl CORNELL RAMDLE, Florence RANDY RATLIFF.

Tuscumbia Highest honors " Being named Mr. UNA is the liighest honor I ' ve received. It makes me proud be- cause the students elected me, " Rich Wil- son said. Seniors Rich Wilson and Frances Beas- ley were named Mr. and Miss UNA in an April 23 election. Wilson, a business management and marketing major from Huntsville, has been president of Rivers Hall, a Student Govern- ment Association Senator, and a member of Who ' s Who, Phi Beta Lambda, and Sigma Chi Fraternity. Beasley, an accounting major from Athens, is president of Panhellenic Council, secretary treasurer of the SGA House of Representatives, and a member of Alpha Chi, Phi Beta Lambda, and Zeta Tau Alpha. " It ' s an honor to represent UNA as Miss UNA. I was very surprised because all the other nominees were very deserving, " she said. Glenn said only 300 students voted in the election, despite the attention the elec- tions received after a controversy arose concerning election procedures. " There should ' ve been a large turnout ... it certainly had enough attention, " he said. The elections were postponed after an SAB committee nominated 12 candidates for Mr. and Miss UNA instead of the usual 10. A question of procedure was brought before the Student Court, who then decided the SAB had violated its own rules and de- clared the nominations " null and void. " As a result, the SAB was forced to select a new nominating committee and a new group of candidates. The other candidates for Mr. UNA were: Terry Bentley, Red Bay; Greg McCor- mick, Athens; Terry Pace, Muscle Shoals; Tom Pilgreen, Warrior; and Craig Tankers- ley, Florence. Nominees for Miss UNA included Beth Holloway, Florence; Deborah Johns, Flor- ence; Lisa Keys, Muscle Shoals; Marl Mat- teis, Los Angeles, Cal.; and Shelia Walker, Huntsville. — Sandy Jackson MISS CJNA Frances Beasley is a senior from Athens.

In spite of this, Alex Wilhite and Cathy Doughty get along just fine. Wilhite is a junior majoring in studio art and art history at UNA, and Doughty, though she is not enrolled, accompanies him to nearly every class. For Alex Wilhite has been deaf since birth and Doughty volunteers her time to lact as interpreter for him in his courses. It is ia symbiotic relationship that has grown into quite a unique friendship. IN ATHIRDFLOOR Art Building studio, Alex Wilhite puts the finishing touches on a drawing for his class portfolio. Because he was born deaf, Wilhite attends most of his classes in the company of his friend and sign language interpreter, Cathy Doughty. A life-long art lover, Wilhite is majoring in studio art and arts history. He plans to attend graduate school in New York. Doughty, who has been involved with many deaf schools, said, " I ' ve always loved deaf people. They ' re very special. " in class she aids Alex in communicating with in- structors and students. For him it is a blessing. Educated in Kuwait and at the Gallaudet University in Washington, a liberal arts school for the deaf, Alex has always loved art. Through gestures and expressions, and often through his companion, he tells of his ex- periences as a deaf person. " Most deaf people do not like being surrounded by other deaf people, " he said. " Deaf culture is different. " So Alex enrolled at UNA and spent an entire summer term without any interpreter. Doughty has been with him for over a year. " As long as he needs me, I ' ll be here. " She and Alex have been together so long " that we talk without ' signing. ' We have total communication. " Alex said that in class more students watch her interpret than the instructor. " We do have different ideas about things, " he said. " But she smiles a lot. It ' s a good rela- tionship. " " Alex is very curious, " Doughty has noticed. " He tries many different things and understands himself better when he gets involved with different environments. " Indeed, his love for art has taken him to the Smithsonian and to SoHo in New York, where he plans to go to graduate school. But for now, he is busy preparing work for his senior art exhibition.

Avid Peanuts fans have been keep- g up with the capers of Charlie Brown and loopy for years. Mowadays, working men id women start their day with a cup of )ffee and Garfield. Students love to feel sorry for Floyd, a artoon character Tripp Storm brings to life Geek World " each week in The Fior-Ala, e weekly student newspaper. Floyd is a geek, one of those ridiculous THE HALLOWEEN episode of " Geek World. " yd was kidnapped by a UFO. His adventure has him captive in a one-inch cube. Travelling with his rtoon character through time and space, Tripp orm is no longer limited by the confines this world creating for Floyd. And no matter how cramped the leinch cube may get. Floyd will continue his jour- y through issues of The Flor-Ala as Tripp continues S education. people whose clothes never coordinate, whose hair looks weird and who is too eager to make a fool of himself. " Everybody ' s a geek in one way or an- other, " Storm said. " They shouldn ' t try to hide it. In ' Geek World ' I try to express what everybody else is going through, it ' s pretty much me too. I don ' t mind the burden. I ' m here to make people laugh and think. " Floyd has faced the long registration lines every college student dreads. Floyd has played the role of " Idaho Jones, " sur- viving the elevator of doom at the men ' s dormitory. Floyd has spotted mosquitoes in the night sky and mistaken them for Hal- ley ' s Comet. And most recently Floyd was kidnapped by a GFO. " He ' s been beamed aboard a CJFO trav- elling through space and time, " Storm said. " Floyd will get to go back In time to Shake- speare and the cave man. I ' m not bound to our time anymore. I have a whole new uni- verse to create in. " Storm is a junior majoring in commer- cial art and theater with a minor in broad- casting. On campus, he is widely known for his creativity and extracurricular activity. Besides being the cartoonist for The Flor-Ala, he serves as a senator on the GNA Student Activities Board and is a member of Alpha Tau Omega social fraternity. Storm has also been initiated into Omicron Delta Kappa for his leadership attributes. He has lived in Chattanooga and McKenzie, TN, Americus, GA, Bristol, VA, Newton, KA, and Shelby. NC. His parents currently reside in Russellville. " I ' m from no place in particular, but everywhere, " Storm said. One day Storm would like to see " Geek World " syndicated. In the meantime, Floyd will be hanging around in The Flor-Ala offices to let stu- dents know it is okay not to be perfect. Underclassmen 161 UNDERCLASSMEN NANCY COPELAND, Muscle Shoals.

" Life is like riding a merry-go-round, " said Butler. " While you ' re on the ride, you .an only see 180 degrees of your world. Sometimes you need to get off the merry- go-round and look at the complete 360 de- grees. And the Peace Corps provides this opportunity. " While in Africa, Butler worked as a ;echnical teacher in metal work. He also — lelped to introduce counseling and sex edu- ration in the schools in Swaziland. He also worked with several rural women ' s groups vho are trying to gain some rights for the rWO VOLUNTEERS compare notes on their exper- ences away from home. Junior Bryan Hill, of Lexing- :on, has served as a summer missionary in Nevada ind New York representing the Baptist Student Union ■or the past two years. Charles Butler, a sophomore rom Florence, recently returned from a Peace Corps our in Swaziland, Africa. African woman. He joined the U.S. Peace Corps for sev- eral reasons. " I was fascinated with travel, " he said. " I had always wanted to go overseas. I wanted to experience different cultures and gain another perspective of the world. 1 also needed some space to do some serious soul-searching. " Butler said that he gained many things from his experience in Africa. He has grown as a person because of his volunteer work. " 1 have achieved a growing awareness toward Africa as a whole, " he said. " I have learned to appreciate and understand many things that we (Americans) take for grant- ed. I feel that I can now look at situations from more than one perspective. " He shares the philosophy of the Peace Corps, which is " to exchange cultures and not to force your values on others. " " Within every man, there is something I can learn. " said Butler. The Florence sophomore said he is try- ing to get in the groove of being back in school and back to the American way of life, but he is suffering slightly from " cul- ture-shock. " Butler ' s intentions are to return to Afri- ca, but he would like to earn an income there, not just the Peace Corps living allowance. UNDERCLASSMEN LISA FINLEY. Florence. JR ANITA FISHER.

Hammond and Magazzu were among those chosen to play extras in the motion picture " Space Camp, " which wrapped up on-location filming in Huntsville. The pro- ject, from ABC Motion Pictures, spent over three weeks shooting at the Alabama Space and Rocket Center. Auditions were held in August. " I first heard about the movie over the radio, " Hammond said. A friend supplied him with information about audition dates and " I de- cided then and there I was going. " Magazzu, who has an active back- ground in theatre, got in touch with the film ' s casting director and soon landed a part. " I just wished that I could do it, so I did it. And I ' d do it all over again in a second, " she said, although she and Hammond faced quite a few harsh realities on the movie set. " It was a big letdown, " Magazzu said. " There is such a big difference between film acting and theatre. " " Being theatre-trained was my down- fall, " Hammond said. During his auditions, the casting director told him to tone it down. " Doing things for an audience is to- tally wrong. The camera is on you tight. " Working twelve-hour days like every one else on the set, the two commuted to Huntsville and back every day. " The first hours on the set were total magic, " Ham- mond said, " but then it got quite boring and tedious. But it was still a great experience to kick back and watch the professionals. " The filming began when the movie ' s stars appeared on the set. Actors Tom Sker- ritt (Alien. The Dead Zone). Kate Capshaw (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), and Leah Thompson (Red Dawn. Back to the Future) were " too normal, " according to Magazzu. " The y ' re just people. " " I liked sitting down and talking to them about the craft of acting, " said Ham- mond. Magazzu and Hammond play counsel ors at the Space Camp, where three rela tively unknown young stars come to learn: to be astronauts. Skerritt and Capshaw run the camp, which was based upon the actual Space Camp at the Rocket Center. " Wee were outfitted in red NASA jumpsuits and ran around in the background looking offi cial, " Hammond said. " We missed over a week of school,! were mentally and physically exhausted,! but we ate it up, " said Magazzu, smiling. " ! ' loved it. " Do the two consider acting a viablet career?

" This is how Max McKinney, a 26year- old blind student, describes Weston, the huge German Shepherd dog he obtained upon graduating from the Leader Dog School this summer. With the help of the Tuscumbia Lions Club and the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. McKinney was able to attend the Rochester, Michigan-based school. During his 26 days away from home, McKinney learned various commands and spent two weeks " getting acquainted " with his dog. " Basically, we learned how to handle many different situations, " McKinney said, ad ding that the students and their dogs practiced crossing streets as well as walk ing through malls, into elevators and along country roads. " We also worked without dogs around a practice course (using harnesses) to get the ' feel ' of a dog " Before Max and his Leader Dog School classmates received their canine compan- ions, a group of trainers spent 16 weeks working with the dogs. McKinney said that the dogs take on much of their trainers ' personalities. Fortu- nately for McKinney ' s sake, " the trainer was very friendly. " Lions Club President A. W. McKinney observed that Weston was " pretty well- trained for lots of people. " Since the stu- dent returned for classes here this fall, it has been necessary only that the dog become adjusted to large crowds. Max, who has attended the university since January 1984, stresses to dog lovers around campus that Weston needs as little distraction as possible while he is working, or rather, leading. " Do not pet the dog! " Max strongly urges. Upon returning from Rochester, Max almost immediately began to teach his dog the city of Florence, particularly his daily route around campus. " He goes where includes classes. Lions President McKinney and Phi i Gam Hayes Ellis, who helped to arrange the fraternity ' s part in paying for McKinney ' s transportation expenses, both agreed that : their project went extremely well right from the beginning. The Leader Dog program, which is in- volved with Lions across the country, be- gan in 1939 and is recognized as one of the largest and most accomplished dog schools ; in the world. Since its inception, the school has in- structed more than 7,000 guide dogs. This year alone, 338 more people have been able to partially overcome their blindness by graduating from Leader Dog School. A special " welcome home " party was thrown in McKinney ' s honor at the Chris- tian Student Center. Speaking on his experience as a whole, McKinney said that he was " very grateful for this opportunity. " ROBERT JAMES. Florence. FR TAMMY JAMES. Russellville. JR BRIDGETT JARMON. Leighton.

JR Political Asylum by Tom Wilemon Keresh I letun to hf Shesa " My name is on the list, if I go back to Iran, I ' ll be imprisoned for my religious be- liefs, " Kereshmeh Anvar said, as she sat in the lobby of the student union building. The pin she wore proclaiming " Wage Peace " and her t-shirt which read " One Planet One people . . . Please " apparently attracted little attention on the campus. Kereshmeh has lived in the United States since she was 17. Her parents, mem- bers of a religious minority called Baha ' i, sent her to live with an aunt in New York in 1979. She came over on the last commer- cial flight to leave Teheran before the Iran- ian Revolution. " They knew it was going to get worse. That ' s why they sent me out, " she said. " Baha ' is have always been discriminated against in Iran. When I was a little girl in school, 1 once had a teacher tell me, ' Ker- eshmeh, you ' re a smart girl. It ' s too bad you ' re a Baha ' i. ' " Now after the Islamic Revolution, things are worse than ever, she said. " In June, 1983, six young Baha ' i wom- en were hanged simply for practicing their faith. One was 17 years old, " said Keresh- meh. " When my parents phoned and wrote me from Iran, they never said anything about the situation over there. They couldn ' t because the phone was tapped and the mail was censored. Neighbors were spying on neighbors. " Kereshmeh ' s father, a very visible Ba- ha ' i, was discharged from his job as a petro- leum engineer. His bank accounts were fro- zen and his properties confiscated. When he received word he was wanted by the Revolutionary Guard, he and his wife went underground. After two years of hiding, they sold personal belongings to raise enough money to buy their way out. Kereshmeh said her parents were ferried through several check-; points where they had to be alert for incon-i spicuous signals and messages " just like in the spy movies. " Three years after their daughter left they made it to America, and the family was reunited. (Kereshmeh has a sister w has lived in the United States for over 1 years.) Her parents now live in Florence. As a Baha ' i, she believes in the unity of all religions and the oneness of mankind. " Islam is really a beautiful religion. It ' s: a shame what Khomeini and his followers are doing to it, " Kereshmeh said. Formed 141 years ago when Iran was still known as Persia, the Baha ' i faith is a relatively new religion, compared to Islam. Kereshmeh said the new Iranian Con- stitution gives Christians, Jews, and Zoras- tians the right to worship, but not the Ba- ha ' is who are the nation ' s largest religious minority. •ay It was. ' Most I Solten man them and i ;Wems, " i lowaid bet When ho aiilserv 2; ' ishtMwl ' ' uture goal " end who I an ; erstude ' • " ssijBdl,, ■ ' SHIB St: Kereshmeh longs for the day she can eturn to her homeland. She said, " The situation in Iran wil ventually change. When it does, I ' d like to |o back and visit. I like to think it will be the l§ ay it was. Most of my best friends (in Iran) have lotten married. I still keep in touch with hem and talk about old times. They ' re Moslems, " she said. Kereshmeh plans to continue working III Dward her nursing degree. ' When I graduate, I want to be able to o and serve in some third world country, light now I ' m thinking about going to Afri- to put my nursing skills to work, " she Kereshmeh stopped talking about her jture goals long enough to chat with a " lend who walked by. Suddenly she was no )nger an Iranian exile. She was just an- ther student. ELAXING BETWEEN CLASSES, Kereshmeh Anvar nds a comfortable spot on campus to catch up on Co sr assigned reading. Kereshmeh moved to the Unit- (jj 1 States shortly before the Iranian Revolution in J79 and now lives with her parents in Florence. She a nursing major. jlOJ LOLA MANN. Hackleburg, JR RICHARD MANSEL.

SO n His Own Write by Jayne Miller " I got 50 rejection slips before my first piece was accepted for publication, " said Clark Perry, a 21yearold junior majoring in professional writing. Clark got his first big break this year when his short story, " STUMPS, " was in- cluded in an anthology entitled Bringing Down the Moon — 15 tales of Fantasy and Horror. He sold the story two years ago to " Space and Time " magazine and was told that it would run about a year later. " Six months later I received a letter saying that they were putting together a book, a best of " Space and Time " sort of thing, and they wanted to use my story even though it had not appeared in the magazine yet, " said Clark. Perry was given a last chance to re- write before the book went to press. He took the publishers up on the offer and made what changes he felt were needed. " After that, I let it go. it was written and sold and I just tried n ot to think about it. " In mid-October the book was released. " There are some good pieces in it. Mine is probably the shortest story in the book, " Clark laughed, but added that the story would make a good black and white epi- sode of " The Twilight Zone. " " It just so happens that it was a horror story that was published. My next piece could be anything. " Perry is cautious about limiting him- self. " I ' ve been broadening my reading, try- ing to be more well-rounded by exposing myself to more kinds of literature, " he said. " Writing is the only real thing that I want to do, " said Clark. " I ' ve gotten about 200 more rejection slips since the first 50, and 10 more accep- tances, " he said. " If I get enough rejections on one piece I ' ll look at it again to see what the problem is and work from there. But the way I see it, people say " no " to you a million times in your life — is that going to stop you? No, " Clark smiled and returned to his typing. BRUCE NETHERTOM. Florence. JR DIANA NEVETT.

JR Technically Speaking by Syrenia Jones Junior Linda Cromeans squeezes time in tier busy schedule as a college student, housewife and medical technologist to edit a professional journal and a hospital news- letter. Not only has Cromeans managed to handle her busy lifestyle, but for the past two years, she has edited " Ala-Tech, " the official journal of the Alabama State Soci- ety of American Medical Technologists. She is also co-editor of the Humana Hospi- tal-Florence newsletter, " HHF-Dateline. " Cromeans became interested in techni- cal writing when she began updating techni- cal procedures manuals in the hospital lab where she has worked for several years. " 1 really hated the way the manuals were originally written, " she said. " 1 wanted to change some of the more technical terms to simple words that are easy to under- stand. " The initiative has paid off. Cromeans received a first place journal award from the American Medical Technologist National Publications Awards. In 1983, her work won honorable mention and distinguished achievement awards on national and state levels. A registered member as a lab techni- cian of American Society of Clinical Pa- thologists and American Medical Technolo- gists, Cromeans won the exceptional merit and technologist of the year award in the state society last year. Through her writing and organizational work, Cromeans hope to show the public what a medical technologist does. " We ' re really unknown by the pa- tients, " she said. " The only time they see us is when we take blood samples and they do not particularly like us. 1 would like for peo- ple to realize how much responsibility Is Involved with our work. " Responsibility is certainly the key to medical technology. The medical technoloj gist ' s job Is ranked the third most stressful occupation in the United States. Cromeans believes the stress result: from having to make decisions so quickly and perform duties so rapidly. " A patient ' s life may be hanging in the ' balance, so we have to do things automati cally, almost mechanically, " she said. Since medical technologists are re- quired to know all the answers Immediate- ly, they must keep up with the latest Inno- vations and technological methods, she said. Most lab procedures have been auto- mated, or at least, semi-automated. " The field changes so often you have to continue your education, " she said. " I spend much of my time reading journals just to keep up with all the new methods and products. " When Cromeans started college here she had planned to major In biology. Howev- er, she has come to enjoy writing so much she is considering changing her major to English and journalism. " I never want to get out of the medical technology field, " she said. " I enjoy doing technical writing for a medical publica- tion. " Although she had her doubts about re- entering college, Cromeans is glad she over- came her fears. She said, " I worried about not fitting in with the younger crowd, but I find they treat me the same as anyone else. " A medical technologist since 1968, she originally began her college career in nursing. However, she soon realized she had chosen the wrong occupation for herself. " I was really unhappy in nursing, " she said. " But I liked the hospital atmosphere and I began to look for alternatives in the medical profession. " Her search led her to a summer job in the medical lab of a Mississippi hospital. " I worked as a collector, getting speci- mens for the medical technician and be- came very interested in the lab operations, " she said. The lab work impressed Cromeans be- cause she found it had an air of mystery about it. " When you do tests and work to figure out the results it ' s like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together, " she said. Cromeans laughingly compares her lab work to playing detective. For the past few years, Cromeans has been employed at Humana Hospital-Flor- ence. Her husband Larry also works as a registered nurse at Humana. " Although we work the same shift we don ' t see each other often while working. " she said. " As a matter of fact, we had been working at Humana for quite a while before the other staff members realized we were married. " Three years ago, both Cromeanses de- cided to go back to college to further their education. " My husband kidded me at first, he didn ' t think I could handle being a house- wife, student and career woman, but I ' ve shown him I can handle my schedule. " ••STREAKING A PLATE. " said medical technologist Linda Cromean. is one of the first steps in " inoculat- ing a culture medium. " In her daily routine at Hu- mana Hospital-Florence, she receives various speci- mens in which she must isolate and identify bacteria.

Unlimited by Jan Maxwell and Susi West Suppose you were the top student in your high school graduating class and were ready to attend West Point with your twin brother. Suddenly, an automobile accident makes this virtually impossible. Most peo- ple would simply give up all hopes for the future at this point, but Graham Sisson did not. As a matter of fact, he has emerged as one of the most active students on campus. He currently serves as treasurer of the Stu- dent Government Association and is presi- dent of Sigma Tau Delta, the National Eng- lish Honor Society. His almost endless list of activities also includes the honor societies Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Alpha Theta, Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Lambda Delta; and Who ' s Who Among American College Students. A junior, Sisson is an active member of the university Parking Traffic Committee, which deals with problems concerning parking, and has the distinction of being named Worthy Sentinel of Alpha Tau Ome- ga Fraternity. Majoring in English and accounting, grades are an essential part of Sisson s life. He never misses a class and maintains a perfect 3.0 grade point average. Recently Sisson received Phi Kappa Phi ' s scholar- ship award for academic excellence. Upon graduating in 1987, Sisson plans to attend the University of Alabama Law School, where his campus involvement and pursuit of excellence will hopefully reach new heights. VICKIE STULTS.

JR Small Business Boon by Tom Wilemon Senior accounting major Vanessa Flakes attended her small business organi- zation class only once all semester. That day she was handed a sheet of paper which read " You have been selected to do field consulting with local businesses who have indicated that their firms need managerial expertise which they do not have or do not have time to give. " The class never met again. Flakes was assigned to work at a year- old manufacturing firm called Star Plating and Fabrications which employs six per- sons. The firm had asked the university ' s Small Business Development Center for as- sistance in setting up a general accounting system. " When I first started working I didn ' t know exactly what was required of me, " she said. " It was the first time I had ever been challenged this way. Accounting in a real life environment is different from what ' s in a book. " In the books at school you have a controlled situation with all the ledgers al- ready set up and the innovative thinking taken care of. Once I realized exactly what I had to do, I was able to plow into it. " Flakes puts in ten hours of work each week for three hours college credit, but she thinks the tra de-off is fair in the long run. " I pretty much operate in an accountant ' s role. I have to make adjustments to what the company needs. I would have to say that small business organization has been more beneficial to me than any other ac- counting courses I ' ve had. After I graduate and get a job, I ' ll know what to do. " Vanessa Flakes ' zeal and expertise have made quite an impression on James Allen, owner of Star Plating and Fabrica- tions. " She has really been good for us, " he said. " She has made us aware of account- ing systems and shortcuts I didn ' t know existed. We ' re lucky to have her. " Allen first learned about the universi- ty ' s Small Business Development Center from James Jerkins, a plant manager for a larger industry with which the small busi-i nessman had a contract. How did James Jerkins know about this unique program? He, too, was once a university student consultant. ON THE JOB TRAINING would have been a better course title for small business organization. Senior accounting major Vanessa Flakes Is proof of that as she earns her three hours credit by working for a small local business. The challenge of this class is not just to get a good grade but to help set up a general accounting system for the firm. At this point Vanessa Is not only taking regular courses to preparei her for her career choice, but she is also gaininq valuable experience which will be beneficial in app ing for similar jobs.

FR f fl t J When Kevin Robison walked into assis- tant professor Robert Allen Holder ' s office and volunteered to be the pianist for the upcoming production of " Pippin, " he began a cycle of events that has made him one of the busiest music majors around. Robison, a transfer student from Vir ginia, became rehearsal pianist and vocal coach for the spring musical. His work with Holder on " Pippin " led to his position as musical director for the SOAR Cabaret dur- ing the summer. For the (November production of " God- spell, " with Holder directing for the Zodiac Playhouse, Robison served as musical di- rector. His job entailed both putting togeth- er a band as well as rehearsing the cast vocally. " Godspell " was, according to Robison, " the best thing I ' ve ever worked on. The experience of putting together the musical numbers with both cast and the band has been invaluable. " Despite his continuous involvement in theatre, Robinson considers himself a seri- ous pianist. He is majoring in applied piano and studies with Dr. Celia Grasty Jones. " Dr. Jones is the best thing that has happened to me since I ' ve been enrolled here — maybe even ever, " he said. " She is the perfect teacher for me, but she is more than just a teacher. She understands me as a friend. " As a pianist, Robison has been accom- panist for the Collegiate Singers and the Chamber Choir. He has played for numer- ous university recitals. However, piano performance is not his first love. Robison ' s main musical interest lies in the area of composition. He has had two major choral works performed, " As the Sun Doth Daily Rise " and " My Home is in the Mountains. " Another of his major works has been a solo piano piece, " Prelude and Toccata. " The piece has been published in a (National music magazine and won the college-level composition contest of the Alabama Music Teachers Association. The piece will go on to the district and national competitions. For the SOAR show Robison wrote two songs and he performed his " Prelude and Toccata. " He has done several arrange- ments for two pianos that have been per- formed by the Piano Ensemble. At present Robison has two major works in progress: a song-cycle for a capella choir, " And in the Autumn Are the Tears of God, " and a full " Mass " for choir, organ and brass. " I know most people don ' t begin with a mass, " he said. " But I ' ve been very inspired to write it. I ' ve gained so much practical experience working on it and learned things that no composition class could have taught me. Everything that I write from now on will be easier and sound better be- cause of what I ' ve learned doing it. " Graduate school is a definite part of Robison ' s plans, but composing works and having them performed will always take priority. " I want to write serious choral music, " he said, citing much contemporary com- posers as Benjamin Britten and John Rutter as favorites. " But I don ' t want to totally ignore the possibility of writing for musical theatre. Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Web- ber have proven that a serious composer can write Broadway musicals without sacri- ficing integrity, and 1 think I can do the same. " OrsCE AGAIN through the chorus, Kevin Robison works with cast member singer Sherry Smith on one of the numbers in " Godspell " . Robison worked as musical director on the community production.

TENNIS by Matthew White FREEZING THE SWING, photogra- pher Eric Ross caught Eddie Pearce as the racquet was just about to meet the ball. d heir performance is an indication of the fact — the tennis team is one of the better . . , teams in the GSC. The team had some very fine in- dividual players such as Calvert Bibb and the GSC men ' s singles champion for the second straight year, Brice Bishop. The team ended the season with a perfect 6-0 conference mark and an overall tournament record of 25-10. Mot bad considering that last year they had an overall of 16-14 and a 4-1 conference score. The improvement according to Coach Larry Thompson is that " We had a more solid line-up one through six than we had last year. " The record is also impressive because it was the toughest schedule ever. The Lions as a team had an 11-0 winning streak and Brice Bishop at one time possessed a 13-0 game streak. The Lions dominated nearly all the conference foes and some Divi- sion I schools fell prey to the team ' s Eric Ross high caliber brand of tennis. Possibly their finest perfor- mance came on a stretch when they defeated Division I power Alabama- Birmingham and followed that up with stellar efforts over conference foes like a 9-0 sweep of Alabama ASM and a 9-0 blanking of Valdosta. In the Gulf South Conference tournament, UNA again finished sec- ond behind (JT Martin who claimed their 4th straight GSC crown. The stand-out note is that CIMA ' s number one singles player, Brice Bish- op, became only the second number one player in the GSC history to win backto-back conference titles. The only other player to accomplish this feat was GT Martin ' s Chris Brady in 1982 and 1983. Two other players, Gary Thomas and David Hammond, also made it to the finals but they were defeated. In doubles action Bishop and Bibb Won their match to claim the only doubles crown for UNA. The pairing of Tim Miles and David Ham mond almost had it in a strong match against (JT Martin ' s opponents. Another highlight to the season was senior Brice Bishop gaining a bic to the NCAA championship. Bishop: was overlooked last year after post ing a GSC championship and a 24-S record. But after receiving the GSC crown for the second straight yeai and a 29-9 record and three tourna ment victories, he received a bid. He is the first UNA player ever to com pete in the NCAA Division II champi onship. Bishop also became the first UNA player to be named into the Divi sion II All-American team. MOVING INTO POSITION, Calvert Bibb pre- pares to return the incoming ball. The tennis team practiced in the spring in the tennis courts by Kilby Laboratory School. When the, team starts up for next season, the team will have four new courts to play on. CALVERT BIBB watches as senior player Brice Bishop prepares to return the serve. Bishop captured the GSC crown for the sec- ond straight year. He was also the first UNA player to be named in the Division II All- American team.

[ though the lady netters had a successful season, they finished just short . . . Matches throughout the season in- cluded decisive games with the Mis- sissippi University for Women, Cal- houn Community College, Delta State and the University of Alabama in Birmingham. The Lady Lions lost a 5-4 deci- sion to Hope College, but rebounded to post three straight wins. GNA won over the MUW 7-2. Four single matches and three dou- bles took the win for the Lady Lions. Then GNA took 9-0 victories from both Jefferson Davis College and Calhoun in Decatur. The Lady Lions did not lose a game in either match. Number one singles player Lori Brandt and number two Kathy Arnold helped get the Lions off to their good start. Lisa Mills, Karen McCollum, Tina Hovater, Pam Hamlin and Melis- sa Beasley were also key players dur- ing the season. " We had a team that worked well together and good attitudes helped in our successful season, " said team | member Tina Hovater. The Lady Lions finished the sea- son tied for third in the conference | with Valdosta and Delta State. Jack- sonville State came in first with UT- Martin as runner-up. Lori Brandt, who was seeded number one on the Lady Lions ladder, made it to the GSC finals losing to GT- Martin 6-4 in the third set. TENNIS TEAM — Front Row: Lisa Mills. Pam Hamlin. Kimi Jergens.

Coach Mike Lane, in only his sec ond year at the helm, has clearly tak- en a struggling program and made it into a powerhouse in the GSC and a threat nationally. The 1985 Lions shattered their 1984 mark of 28-24 overall with an awesome 46-11-1 record. Although the Lions came close to repeating their success as Gulf South Conference champions, things just didn ' t happen for them as expect- ed, and they were eliminated in the GSC tourney. The Lions started off well with a crushing 11-1 decision over rival Jax State in the opening round, but things just seemed to fall apart as they were upended by a surprisingly tough Ten- nessee-Martin squad which put UNA in the comeback seat of the loser ' s bracket. In a must-win situation, the Lions appeared to have their second victory in the GSC tourney wrapped up, but an impressive late-inning rally by Delta State with two outs in the ninth proved to be the downfall for UNA. Delta State eventually won the event. Coach Lane made no excuses. " We are a better baseball team than we have shown, " he said. " Things just haven ' t gone our way in this tour- nament. " As for the possible NCAA bid, " I don ' t see how they can keep us out, " Lane said after the GSC tournament loss. " We ' ve got too good a ball club. " The UNA Lions were expecting great things from this year ' s Central Division Regional tournament, but once again seemed jinxed as they fell to Troy State 7-6 in the opening round. A second loss in the double elimina- tion tournament to Grand Valley Stati of Michigan prematurely ended the! dreams of becoming National Charr pions. After such brilliant play durin the regular season, errors at crucia times cost the Lions the right to ac vance further than they did in thi Central Region tourney. " To go ou like this is pretty hard to take, " sai( UNA star Cedric Landrum. In compiling their best recon ever and being ranked as high as sec ond in Division II polling, the UN men ' s baseball team accomplished re markable feats, including a 16-gami winning streak.

As a team, UNA broke the old stolen base record of 204 set by Cen- tral Florida in 1983 in Division 11 with a total of 253 for the season. Individually, there were several Fine contributors for the Lions during the season, such as Ben Cregeen and Mark Shrout. The stand-outs were se- niors Rick Chavez, Robert Lopez, and edric Landrum. All three were con- dered for All-America second team. Shortstop Chavez, a 1984 Ail- America selection, batted .443 this season with 66 hits and a team-high 52 RBl ' s. Pitcher Lopez at the end of the regular season boasted a record of 11-1 and 10 complete games in 12 starts and ranked as one of the win- ningest pitchers in the QSC. He was also named to the All-Central Region baseball team for the NCAA Division 11. Landrum, Lopez, and Chaney were named to the All-GSC team in their respective positions. All three Diayers are potential prospects for the Dros. Cedric Landrum had a stellar performance this year despite miss- ing 10 games due to a mid-season in- iury. He closed his career at UNA by stealing a Division II record 69 bases. Landrum ' s stolen bases destroyed the old GSC single-season record of 37, and his 79 runs scored was also a league record. Landrum completed his career with 150 stolen bases, which more than doubled the former GSC mark of 66. In addition, he led the Number two nationally ranked Lions in hits (72), runs scored (79), walks (40), dou- bles (15), homeruns (8), on base per- centage (.526), and slugging percent- age (.688). Landrum also tied for the team lead in triples with four and is 416 for the season, while driving in 43 runs. He also led the squad in fewest strikeouts with nine. The keys to the Lions ' success- ful season were their pitching, speed, and consistency as a team. Landrum, the " master thief, " Lopez ' s terrific arm, Chavez ' s excellent defensive abilities will be sorely missed. But be- sides the talent, another important el- ement will be lost with these graduat- ing seniors: the leadership role that brought the players together as a unit and produced one of the best baseball teams in the country.

Either you are a runner . . . THE PRERACE warm-up is vital to a runner ' s perfor- mance. Gail Nichols does several stretches to prepare her muscles for the run. or you are not. Cross Country runners are the people you see running along the side of the road in January when it ' s 20 degrees outside. You will also see them on the roads in the pouring rain of March or the 95-degree heat of Au- gust. They are fiercely competitive, self-disciplined, and motivated from within to push themselves to the lim- it. They run because they are runners. It is that inner drive, along with the dedication to train year-round and the mental toughness to endure the grueling workouts, that led the CINA men ' s and women ' s cross country teams to impressive second place fin- ishes in the Gulf South Conference in only their second season of competi- tion. " We got a lot out of our runners this season, " said Head Coach Eddie Rivers. " The entire team worked very hard all year. " Rivers said the season was an improvement over last year when the GNA runners finished third in the GSC in their first season of competition. " We had more depth and talent than in our first year, " said Rivers. " But we ' re still a young team. Many runners were young and still learning about running against collegiate com- petition. Overall, it was a success compared to last year. " The men ' s team finished the sea- son with an overall record of 45-20. They had an 11-8 record against Divi- sion I teams such as Vanderbilt, Geor- gia Tech, and Memphis State. The women ' s team was even more successful, running to a 45-1 1 record and a very impressive 13-3 re- cord against Division I schools. Rivers said that kind of season earned the respect of many well-es- tablished teams and added that it ' s only a matter of peaking at the right time of the season to become a cham- pionship team. " We have shown the teams in the conference and the region that we have quality runners, " said Rivers. " It ' s just a matter of coordinating ev- erything so the team is at its physical and mental peak at the end of the season. " The cross country season begins in September and runs through mid- November. The teams run six to eight races during the season, with the most important being the conference and regional championship meet at the end of the season. That race in- cludes teams from Virginia to Texas and determines who will go to the na- tional championship meet. From August through October, both the men ' s and women ' s teams have predawn runs of three-five miles in addition to regular afternoon work- outs. A typical training week for the men is about 70-90 miles. The women run from 35-60 miles per week. While that may sound outra- geous to those not familiar with cross country. Rivers said anything less won ' t prepare the teams for the strong competition. " That ' s the kind of training it MEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY TEAM — Front Row: Gordy Wallace. Don Broome. Brian Dillard.

Rivers pointed out the leadership of Teresa Steele, All-Conference per- formers Carol Franklin and Leigh Ben- net, and the steady performance of senior Regina Pride as a key to the women ' s successful season. The women will lose Pride and senior Carrol Steakley to graduation, but have seven runners returning from this year ' s team. The men ' s team was led again this year by two-time all-conference performer Barry Fitts. Fitts is a senior and will not return next year, but Riv- ers expects the returning six runners plus new recruits to continue the posi- tive team performances. The key to the teams ' success and improving over this year ' s perfor- mance is getting the most out of the offseason. Rivers said. " The team that trains to their ma ximum all year round will do we he said. " Our winter and spring work- outs are going to make or break us in the fall.

Another exciting game took place the next day against Delta State with a final score of 7-5 in the favor of the eventual winner of the GSC, Delta State. Gul ' South Conference third place was worth all of the preparation as well as the perspiration. This was really quite unexpected since, as Coach Ande Jones put it, " This was a rebuilding year, there were only four people returning from last year ' s team, I really wasn ' t expecting much from them but they really did a lot of gutsy playing. " This young, rather inexperi- enced team finished third in the GSC as opposed to last year ' s returning players. " I was really pleased with the fin- ish we had. Our record didn ' t end up that well, but the team peaked at the end and played their best at the GSC tournament, " said Jones.

INTRAMURALS by Wayne Smith Intramural director Eddie Rivers I said that the key to this success is the Ivariety of sports being offered. " The objective of the office is to I increase the number of people in- Ivolved and the way to do that is by [having something for everyone, " Riv- lers said. In trying to get more feedback I from students, the Intramural Sports Council was introduced last fall to al- low students to communicate what they want in intramurals. Although the council is still in its beginning stages. Rivers thinks that it is a good sounding board for the students. Another booster to the intramu- Iral program was the introduction of the point system for the All-Sports Trophy. The PE Men took the men ' s division over the Pike ' s and LaGrange claimed the women ' s trophy over Lady BSU in 1985. At mid-year for the 1986 All-Sports Trophy, Athletes in Action and the PE Women were the leaders. Five-man basketball champion- ships went to the PE Men and to the PE Women last spring, as did the vol- leyball titles. Tony Parks claimed the mens one-on-one basketball championship and Sherry Parker was the women ' s winner. In the floor hockey event, DISH (the CIMA tennis team) ran away with the title. A bench press competition was also held with six different categories. Winners included Tony Parks (126 pound division), Andy August (140), Alan Welch (155), Mark Gates (175), Stacy Seals (385), and Benji Parrish (varsity athlete). Rich Williams won the singles tennis tournament and Pam Hagwood was the women ' s winner. In doubles play. Bob McCurry and Mark Layne claimed the top spot.

The PE Women took the championship in the women ' s division in both basketball and in water volleyball. Athletes in Action knocked off the PE Men for the men ' s water volleyball champion- ship. In flag football play, the Intellec- tual Conspiracy won over Pike in the championship game, while LaGrange won over Lady BSU. Racquetball win- ners were Jeff Owens and Sherri Hipps.

RIFLE TEAM Advis- er Major Frank Green coaches as team members Johnny Blackwell and Chip Thompson shoot from kneehng posi- tions. Your gloved hand grips it securely, and your finger comes to rest on the trigger. A small twitch or shudder could mean that the tiny target fifty feet away will be missed entirely. About the size of a half dollar, it is the focal point for every member of the rifle team. According to Major Frank E. Green, coach to the team, shooting is a very difficult sport to pursue. The shootists fire twenty rounds in three positions: prone, kneeling and stand- ing, for a total of sixty shots. Since the sport became affiliated with the NCAA in 1980, the rifle team has provided admirable competition with other schools. UNA opened the season against (JT Martin, however, with a 1960-21 15 loss. Member John- ny Blackwell led the team with a score of 514. The team fired seven dual matches against other colleges, in- cluding a brilliant win over Florida State. The marksmen boasted a 4 3 record for the season. CINA also hosted the Gulf South Conference championships in the spring, with the Lions placing third behind (JT Martin and Jacksonville State. The third-place ranking was more than adequate considering the college did not have a scholarshi program this year. The team ended the last regulc season match at Jacksonville Stat where Johnny Blackwell made th AII-GSC team and member Hayes E lis captured the kneeling trophy fc division B. Other members include captai Robert Evans, Debra Ann Duke, an Theresa Gray. The Lions will return to the regi lar season next year with Ellis as cap tain.

Aiter several years of good (but inconsistent) play the golf team is getting closer to par . . Although the team lost a couple of seniors, they had an excellent re- turning group that led GNA to their second consistent season with a mark of 31-26. The Lions posted their first tournament win in a long time at the Delta State Invitational with a low team score of 579. Medalist for this event was Scot- tie Stephens with a terrific effort of 67-69 for a two day total of 136. The Golf team also finished a strong second at the always tough Jacksonville State Invitational, losing by only a few strokes on the final day. The rest of the matches noted the team as always in the front and a group of young men with a lot of po- tential — yet somehow they just couldn ' t quite pull it all together. In the prestigious Junior-Senior Invitational, UNA took ninth against the likes of strong competition in the always powerful Troy State and other Ty Smith outside teams such as Air Force and West Florida. In the Alabama Intercollegiate a respectable sixth was placed behind winning team Auburn, GSC rivals Troy State and Montevallo, and both the red and white teams of Alabama. In the big tournament of the year, (the Gulf South Conference) UNA again placed fifth. Even though sever- al fine rounds were turned in individ- ually, as a group the Lions were just off the mark. The GNA golf team is starting to gain in caliber in the GSC. It has been a long climb coming. With the graduation of two of their finest seniors, Robert Tyree and Robert Davis, the team will have to hold its own. However, Coach Gary Elliot is optimistic. " We are still a young team with a lot of potential and talent, " said Elliot. Elliott thinks that the team just has to work more on the consistent which is already progressing.

FOOTBALL by Wayne Smith as his 1985 University of Mortti Ala- bama football squad. This desire, mixed with an incredible defense and a capable offense, led the Lions to the final game for the Division II [Rational Championship. This was a team that had to over- come adversity to get to be first run- ner-up in the race for the champion- ship. One of its top defensive linemen was seriously injured in a boating ac- cident a month before practice began. The number one quarterback quit a week before the opening game, leav- ing the position up in the air. But Head Coach Grubb and his coaching staff pushed this team to where no one had expected. Coming off of a 7-1-3 mark in 1984, the Lions were given slim chances of capturing their third Gulf South Conference title in five years. But they accomplished that goal, and more. Here is the story- book account of an unbelievable fall. A 40-0 win over an outmanned Miles College team opened the sea- son for UNA. As would come to be expected throughout the season, the Lions ' defense dominated as they held the Bears to 16 yards total of- fense. An old face — Clarence Johnson — returned to score the Lions ' first touchdown. But even with the large margin of victory, Grubb was con- cerned. He said, " The first win is al- ways a good one to get down, but our offense is going to have to grow up. " Unfortunately, the Lions ' offense did not improve in time for Mississip- pi College as UNA suffered a 17-13 setback in its GSC opener. The Choc- taws scored the winning touchdown with just three minutes remaining to mar what had been an outstanding effort by UNA ' s defense. The offense could not produce a touchdown and this opened the door for the critics. " We didn ' t lose our poise and we fought hard, but two or three mis- takes cost us the game, " Grubb said afterward. After two open dates, the Lions came home to Braly Municipal Stadi- um to record an important momen- tum win over Savannah State, 43-22. " We didn ' t do things as well as we would like to, but any kind of win is important to our program right now, " Grubb said. Two UNA records fell in the win as Clarence Johnson became the school ' s all-time leading rusher and James Knowles became the school ' s career scoring leader. A return to conference play saw the Lions record a 12-3 win over Delta State in another defensive struggle. Kicking also played an important part in the win. Knowles set the GSC scor- ing record with a field goal and a mis- handled Delta punt set up the Lions ' winning touchdown. Johnson also rushed for more than 100 yards for (cont. on page 219) ON THE SIDE- LINES, Center Kevin Nauman enjoys the action in the season opener against Miles College.

But more importantly, the win gave (JNA confi- dence that they could still win the conference title. A non-conference battle with Alabama ASM followed and GNA continued to show its reliance on de- fense. Knowles provided the only UNA points with field goals of 49 and 39 yards as UNA took a 6-3 decision. The win helped UNA to move Into 11th place nationally and they also were ranked in the top 10 nation- ally in every defensive category. The much maligned offense had turned its leadership over to a new field general, as Tim Garner was replaced by Dallas Metcalf as quarterback and led the Lions ' winning drive. " We knew coming into the sea- son that defense would be our strong suit, but we didn ' t think the offense would have trouble putting the ball in the end zone the way it has, " Grubb would say. But the offense did start to repay some of the debt it owed when the Lions destroyed Tennessee-Martin, 38-7. The win improved UNA ' s mark to 5-1 and 21 in the GSC. Johnson scored two touch- downs as the Lions raced to 21 first quarter points. The defense held Mar- tin to 22 yard rushing and also scored when Bruce Jones would recover a blocked punt for six. Jones and blocked punts would become a famil- iar combination in 1985. " This was just one of a string of games that we must win to accom- plish our goals, " said defensive coor- dinator Bill Hyde. " If we can go 10-1 on the season, it would be hard for us to stay out of playoff consideration. " Hyde would be right in his assess- ment. Game number seven would see UNA host its top rival, Jacksonville State. The Lions survived a late scare to hang on for a 23-10 victory. UNA built up a 16-3 lead as John son rushed for 133 yards and fullback Glenn Ivy rushed for 150 yards. But a mental letdown in the final period al- lowed the Gamecocks to get back in the game and have a chance to win. But David Smith would intercept a Gamecock pass and return in 41- yards for the game-clinching score with just 40 seconds remaining. " It shouldn ' t have been such an exciting game, but our defense rose to the oc- casion for us again, " Grubb said. A dramatic win over Troy State followed as Knowles kicked a 44-yard field goal with 37 seconds remaining to lift UNA to a 9-7 win over the de- fending national champion Trojans. The win, coupled with Mississippi College ' s loss to West Georgia, placed the conference race into a deadlock. Metcalf once again came off the bench to direct the Lions ' game-win- ning drive. " We knew following that game that we had a chance to control our own destiny, " said Metcalf, who would later get the chance to go home to Texas in the championship game. Continuing its move up the na- tional poll, sixth-ranked UNA would post a 17-0 homecoming win over Livingston. " We ' re not a flashy team, but we scratch and claw to get enough points to win, " Grubb said. UNA didn ' t need a lot of offensive production when it had the second ranked defense in the nation. Johnson rushed for a GSC record 37th career touchdown and for 110 yards. Knowles also kicked a new UNA record 51-yard field goal.

Freshman Larry Webb was the offensive star as he rushed for 161 yards. " It was a tough victory, but we hung in there and won by the skin of our teeth. Our defense keeps coming up with the big plays when we need them, " Grubb said. The win gave the Lions a 9-1 re- cord with one game remaining against Valdosta State. First place in the GSC was still shared by both Mississippi College and GNA. There was talk heading into the last game that if the conference race should end in a tie, the title would be given to Mississippi College. This would have knocked GNA out of a playoff bid and " would be a disgrace " according to Grubb. The Lions put forth their best ef- fort of the season and took a 45-0 win over Valdosta in what was expected to have been a defensive battle. Then came the good news. Delta State had played Mississippi College to a 14-14 tie giving the Lions sole possession of first place in the GSC and a national playoff berth. In the win over Valdosta, Charles Johnson rushed for 163 yards as the Lions had their best offensive output of the season. The defense also re- corded its third shutout of the season. Knowles also established the all-time Division II scoring record with a sec- ond quarter extra-point. " We knew that sooner or later we would have a good offensive showing and today was the day, " Grubb said. Advancing on to the playoffs, the Lions ' first opponent would be the Fort Valley State Wildcats. Fort Val- ley boasted the top defensive unit in the country, while (JNA was second. UNA managed 14 fourth quartei points to escape with a 14-7 com from-behind win over the Wildcat ' ! " Thank goodness for defense, " said : relieved Grubb afterwards. " We wer able to convert a couple of miscue into points and that was the diffe ence in the game between two gree defensive teams. " The Lions scored on a touct down pass from Metcalf to Michae Ricks and after David Smith had n turned an interception. On to the semifinals — The set ond-ranked Lions would meet thirc ranked Bloomsburg of Pennsylvani to decide who would advance to th Palm Bowl.

With CINA losing just 16 seniors from that team and having a taste of what it ' s about, Grubb could be right.

Vicki Mesplay dives to block the smash with Fran Orlando and Julie Jones ready to assist. Mes- play is considered a valuable asset to the team in provid- ing strength to the UNA attack as mid- dle hitter to the overall defense with her blocking and backrow play. □lo win, they have to work together and communicate, Coach Ande Jones explained . . . " I think volleyball is the epitome of team sports. " The words " setters, " " hitters, " and " defensive player, " may not mean much to those who are not vol- leyball fans, but these terms were a part of the lives of 13 students and their coach, Ande Jones. The number 13 seems to have had no III effect on the team; their final record was an impressive 35 to 14. Among their victories, UNA won the Gulf South Conference which they went into with an undefeated re- cord of 15 wins. Earlier in the season UNA com- peted in the Florida Conference at Florida Southern, where they played against nationally ranked teams such as Mississippi University for Women (MUW) and Sam Houston. After two days of testing their skills, UNA has ranked third out of eight teams. This year ' s female combination consisted of three freshmen recruited from high school volleyball teams, three sophomores, four juniors, and three seniors. The seniors were con- sidered by their teammates and coach as top players; each one was chosen to play in the Gulf South Con- ference which is the highest honor re- ceivable at UNA. Starting in mid-August, Coach Jones began daily drills in preparation for the four month playing season. Practice would last roughly three hours and consisted of a warm-up jog around the gym, handling the ball, spike drills, defensive moves and per forming blocking techniques. These skills were put into practice as the girls played matches against one an other. Workout would conclude with a one-mile run. Conditioning started from day one until the last day of the season; Tuesday and Thursday evenings were usually spent on the road, and tourna- ments were on the weekends. " Every once-in-a-while Coach Jones would give us Sunday off, " said ball player Pamela Pruitt. In order to acquire the technical refinement which makes a winning team, according to Jones, there must (cent, on page 226) GETTING DOWN when necessary to get the point, Audrey Porter returns the ball as Julie Jones looks on. Porter, a freshman hitter from Barnhart, Mo., is a transfer from Jefferson College. A SENIOR HITTER from Lexington, Ren- ita Allen is a two year starter for the Lions. She was a key part of the defense because of her strong blocking and backcourt play. Allen, who was named to the GSC All-Con- ference team, is an elementary education major. COACH ANDE JONES ENCOURAGES her players during a break in the action. Jones has been at the university for four years, and in that time has succeeded in strengthening the foundation of an already successful volleyball program. A native of Florence. Jones was an athlete at both Bradshaw High School and at UNA. She earned her master ' s from the University of Alabama. c SERVING THE BALL, Renita Allen sho good form. Allen had greatly improved off ' sively at the onset of this season, according Coach Ande Jones. John How ommunicate (cent, from page 224) be continual practice during which six girls learn to work as one without trying to play the game in which one person is the star. Regardless of the time require- ments, Jones stresses the importance of academics. " Many times we would be riding to a match in the van with the inside light on so everyone could study. " Having been a previous volley- ball player, Ande Jones realizes the pressure of the " academics and sports " combination. When she was playing for UNA in 1973, she felt that her team had a very competitive schedule, but nothing like this year ' s season which consisted of ten addi- tional matches. Being the coach for both the soft- ball and volleyball teams. Coach Ande Jones recognizes the various elements which differentiate volley- ball from other team sports. A volley- ball match has no time limit; depend- ing on the competition, a match can last between 20 minutes and two and " A GOOD HITTER with outstanding court sense " Is how Jones described Audrey Porter, No. 14. Porter is used primarily as a defensive specialist, but is called upon to make a major contribution to the squad both offensively and defensively. Porter is an " excellent backrow player for strong side defense. " a half hours. During regular season, (non-tournament games), to claim the match the team must win three out of five fifteen point games. Also, the space in which six girls are confined is much smaller than a football field or baseball diamond. In addition to these factors the game re- quires a great deal of concentration on the part of the players. " It is a psychological sport, a mental game, " said Coach Jones. Montevallo is a prime example of this year ' s success in mental strate- gy. Montevallo has grown to be one of UNA ' S arch-rivals. This past October UNA was victorious over its oppo- nent both at home matches and on Montevallo ' s floor. " I get discouraged with the lack of recognition which the team gets, " admitted Coach Jones. " UNA has a program they can be proud of, but we lack the publicity and people lack an understanding (appreciation?) of the game. 1 know if a person comes to see one game he will be addicted. " John Howard MMIlib A NATIVE of Hillsboro. Mo., Vicki Mesplay is majoring in sociology and corrections. The 5 ' 9 " junior is a transfer from Jefferson Col- lege, Mo., where she played on a NJCAA top five finisher team for two consecutive years. Jones called her an " outstanding player with a great attitude. " FRESHMAIN HITTER Shea Lindley returns the ball to the Middle Tennessee side of the net in a match in Flowers Hall. A versatile athlete, Lindley was a four sport participant in high school athletics at Haleyville. Basketball 227 BASKETBALL by Wayne Smith AN ATTEMPT to gain control of the ball causes a clash of wills between freshman Steve Mar- tin and his Tennes- see Wesleyan oppo- nent. toach Bill Jones was very optimistic about his team ' s chances of returning . . . to the national spotlight. The Lions were returning six letter- men from a somewhat disappointing 15-12 squad, along with what was considered to be one of the best re- cruiting crops in school history. Among those returning were Greg Epps and Sam Logan, leading scorers from a year ago, and guards Mitch Gholston and Tamp Harris. Transfers Anthony Reid and Luther Tiggs, along with freshmen Steve Martin, Barry ' Buck ' Williams and Daryl Royster, left the Lions loaded with talent. But it took a while for the Lions to learn to play as a team. The talent was certainly evident, but a 10-7 re- cord at the halfway point had placed GNA ' s post season hopes in doubt. With only the top four teams in the conference qualifying for the GSC tournament, UNA was in trouble sit- ting in sixth place at 3-5. The season began back in Novem- ber as UNA coasted to home victories over Tennessee-Wesleyan (76-64) and Bethel College (76-55). The Lions showed sparks of brilliance in each game, but could not put together a consistent effort. The Executive Rivermont Classic provided GNA with an opportunity to compete with one of the best teams in Division II, Kentucky Wesleyan. UNA opened the tournament with a onesided 84-61 win over Brescia Col- lege. The Lions scored 54 second half points to take the win. The Senior Lo- gan led the way with 16 points. That put the Lions in the final against host Kentucky Wesleyan. The Panthers have won four Division 11 championships and had a 41 game home winning streak. The Lions, be- hind a brilliant 28-point performance from Martin, fell just short in a come back attempt losing 69-67. " We ' re go- ing to be okay, " Jones said. " We ' ve got to learn from this loss. " Over the Christmas break, UNA upped its record to 9-4 and also dis- covered a new offense that worked to its advantage — the three point shot. The Lions recorded wins over Ten- nessee Wesleyan (64-62) and Athel State (53-45), but lost a chance to g | some momentum before the bre when Athens State knocked off t| Lions 74-68 in double overtime. Martin led the Lions to a 77-55 n(| conference win in the first game 1986 with 14 points and nine bounds. Conference play then begj at home against UT-Martin with t| Lions losing 80-71. UNA shot only percent from the field in the loss. Then came the incredible. In tj next game against GSC foe Valdos State, the Lions came from 16 poirl behind to claim a 81-74 win. Tj spark came as Clements freshm. Barry ' Buck ' Williams came in to i| leash a three-point assault. Williar| scored 18 points in five minutes, eluding five three pointers, in one the most memorable Flowers H,j games ever.

(cont. from page 228) The three-point basket also helped (JMA to a near upset of conference leader Delta State on the road. The Lions came from 11 points behind, only to lose 87-85. Logan led GNA with 20 points, while Williams and Terry Patterson had 18 points each. Jones suddenly liked the wide open offense. The 19feet, 9-inch three- point line, along with the 45 second clock had helped to change Jones from his conservative offensive phi- losophy. A 86-84 win over Troy State brought Jones his 300th career coaching victory. Center Epps tossed in 23 points to lead the Lions, who were also aided by eight three-point bombs. Jones said of win number 300, " I feel good about it, but the play- ers and the administration ' s support should get the credit for a fine pro- gram. " The CIMA program really appeared to be back in shape for national con- tention when the Lions posted a thrill- ing 95-90 win over defending national champion Jacksonville State in Flow- ers Hall. The UNA win ended a 22- game GSC winning streak for the Gamecocks. Ten three-point baskets, including four from Martin, helped UNA to open things up against the more physical Gamecocks. Martin and Epps led UNA. with 18 points apiece and Tiggs added 16 points. " It ' s a great win and could well be the turning point for our season, " Jones said. " But we ' ve got some tough road games coming up and we can ' t afford to let up. " Unfortunately, the Lions next three road games would turn things completely around. Beginning in Valdosta, the Lions turned in their worst performance of the year in losing 113-93. The loss was the Lion ' s worst conference de- feat since a 106-77 loss to Jackson- ville in 1980. Logan led the way in the losing effort with 25 points. The next game turned out to be another back breaker for the troubled Lions. UNA lost an early lead to fall 69-66 at Troy State. Jones blamed: missed opportunities and mental lapses for his club ' s defeat. " We ' ve; got to pick it up from here because; [ the conference is gradually wearing away from us, " Jones said. But instead of turning things around, the Lions fell deeper in a hole. On the final game of a three-game GSC road trip, UNA was blown out by,| West Georgia, 102-79. The Lions were 0-4 on the road in the GSC and Jones was calling his team ' s defense its " worst ever. " The fact that the Lions had given up 100 points or more in two of the three games helped to back up his feelings. The Lions were finally headed back to the friendly confines of Flowers Hall to try and straighten things out.

The Lions shot just 40.8 percent from the field in an unimpressive BO- SS win over GAH. Epps led (JMA with 22 points and nine rebounds. Against Livingston, Charles Patterson came off of the bench to toss in 17 points and electrified the crowd with his pat- ented slam dunks. Williams led UMA with 18 points as the Lions strolled to an 82-68 win. " We need to put a string togeth- er, because it is desperation time, " Jones said. " It would be nice to start that string at Jacksonville. " Indeed, the Lions next game was at rival Jacksonville State. GNA, de- spite fighting from 17 points down, lost 84-81 to the Gamecocks to crip- ple further its tournament hopes. The loss overshadowed brilliant perfor- mances from Logan, Harris and Wil- liams.

It was the three-point shooting of Williams and Harris that spurred the Lions ' comeback. The loss left Jones fuming after- wards. He said, " They whipped our butts on the boards and we just seemed to stand there flat-footed. Our kids played hard, but we needed a win and didn ' t get it. " Three nights later, the Lions suf- fered another heartbreaking loss at the hands of CITMartin. This would be the team that would knock out GNA for the final tournament spots even though both teams finished 9-7 in the GSC. After holding a seven posing halftime lead, turnovers caused CIMA to drop the 80-75 decision. Logan did have the best perfor mance of his career against the Pac ers with 31 points on 14 of 16 shoot ing. Williams contributed 16 for UNA Instead of giving up on the sea son, UNA came back home to post a satisfying 86-78 win over West Geor- gia. " We were very unselfish and we also came together as a unit, " Jones said. " And as a result, we beat the best team in the league right now. " Epps and Logan led the way for UNA with 22 and 17 points, respec- tively. Williams again added 16 for the Lions. UNA then put together its first GSC road victories with wins over Mississippi College (62-60) and Liv- ingston (70-60). Steve Martin sank a three-point shot with just eight sec- onds remaining to lift UNA to the win at Mississippi College. Logan led a balanced scoring attack with 12 points. At Livingston, UNA controlled the contest most of the way behind Epps ' 21 points as the Lions im- proved to 15-9. The Lions then came back to Flowers Hall for the final three games of the season. There was suddenly a battle for the fourth spot in the con- ference and two GSC wins by UNA would keep its hopes alive. First up in the crucial home- stand was non-conference foe Fort Valley State. UNA ran the Wildcats down to earn an 89-68 win. Tiggs tossed out 14 assists, a new UNA re- cord, and Martin led a balanced at- tack with 12 points. Martin put on a basketball dis play the next night against Mississip- pi College. The freshman scored 22 second half points to finish with 26 as the Lions took an 85-74 win. But then came the bad news. UT- Martin had won its final game to clinch the fourth spot in the GSC tour- ney on the basis of sweeping two games from UNA. The Lions ' final game, a make-up with co-conference champion Delta State, would be for pride only. This left senior Mitch Gholston, who became the school ' s all-time as- sist leader in 1986, thinking about the end of his career. " It hurts to think that Delta will be my last game to play here. But we ' ve got to get ready for a game that we seniors will always remember. " That night did turn into a night to remember for the three UNA seniors. Coming back from an eight point defi- cit, the Lions took a thrilling 67-64 win over the nationally ranked States- men. The UNA victory prevented Del- ta from winning the GSC title outright as they shared the title with West Georgia. Anthony Reid led the UNA come- back with 16 points in the second half, including 12 straight. Tiggs wrapped up the win by sinking two free throws with ten seconds remain- ing. Martin had 17 points for the Lions. " I ' m proud to see the seniors go out as winners and I ' m just sorry that we could not make the playoffs, " said Jones. " Our guys deserve to keep playing. We have won our last six games and we certainly have the mo- mentum going for us, but we ' re prob- ably just one win away from the NCAA playoffs. " That opening conference loss at the hands of UTMartin had come back to haunt the UNA players. COLLIDING WITH an Athens State player Greg Epps hustles for the ball.

BASKETBALL by Wayne Smith from the previous year ' s Gulf South Conference championship team which had advanced to the finals of the NCAA South Region. GNA got off to a fast start with wins over Blue Mountain (72-65), and Cumberland twice (72-70 and 73-66). But Byrd was not happy with his team ' s pe rformance. He said, " We have a lot of areas where we need to improve because we are playing so many new people. I ' m glad we didn ' t get anybody hurt or any equipment torn up so far. " Three straight losses would plague UNA heading into the Christ- mas break. The Lady Lions lost at Tennessee Wesleyan, UAH and Blue Mountain to even their mark. Carmen Riley helped UNA get back on the winning track with an 88- 74 decision over Tennessee-Wesleyan as she tossed in 36 points. Deborah Benson, an AII-GSC performer who had missed the earlier part of the sea- son, added 20. But another three-game losing streak would follow with losses to UT- Martin, Valdosta State and SEC pow- er Alabama. After the embarrassing 85-54 de- feat at the hands of Alabama, the Lady Lions bounced back to blast Troy State, 87-64. " This team is confusing. We ei- ther take the night off or play hard, " said Byrd. " With what we have, we j have got to play hard every night. " j A big 94-59 win over rival Jack- 1 sonville State followed and it looked ; as if things could be turning around for the women ' s team. Tina Rood had 21 points and 15 rebounds for the Lady Lions and Benson added 20 I points. A 69-60 loss to another SEC pow- er, Vanderbilt, would drop the Lady Lions to 6-7. Two consecutive losses on the road to GSC foes Valdosta State and Troy State were helped by the fact that the club carried only six players on the trip. " We were short- handed, but the ones who made the trip played hard, " said Byrd. The 75-73 overtime loss to Troy State was particularly heart-breaking after the Lions had fought back to tie the contest. Leigh Bennett had a ca- reer high 32 points to lead UNA and Rood added 21. An 82-78 win over Mississippi University for Women got the Lions back on the winning track. A 58-54 loss to UAH further con- cerned Byrd about his team ' s effort. But two important GSC wins followed over Livingston and Jacksonville State. Jana Killen scored 19 points and delivered several clutch baskets late to help UNA to the 70-64 win over Livingston. Then at Jacksonville, Jacksonville native Bennett poured in 27 points as the Lions posted a 77-65 road win. Continuing through February, the Lady Lions built a five game con- ference winning streak. Bennett and Rood scored 27 points each to pace UNA ' S 99-82 win over UTMartin. The hot Lions then shot 69 percent from the field in an impressive 106-71 vic- tory. The win streak continued with another decision over West Georgia and MUW. But back-to-back GSC losses severely hurt the Lady Lions ' chances for the four team GSC tour- nament. Livingston beat UNA on the road 71-66 and Delta State left Flow- ers Hall with a big 74-61 win. " We had people that were ready to concede defeat before they even went out on the court, " said Byrd, re- ferring to the Delta loss. " It was obvi- ous that we weren ' t ready to play to- night. A non-conference 95-74 win over Fort Valley State prepared UNA for its final show-down at Delta State. Ben- nett scored 20 points and Benson add- ed 19 to help the Lions get past Fort Valley. The season had come down to this. A win over Delta and the Lions were in the tournament. A loss meant the season was over. Unfortunately, UNA was forced to take the latter al- ternative as Delta took an 82-61 win. The senior Benson scored in dou- ble figures for a school record 25th time with 15, but that would not be enough. Benson, who averaged over 19 points per game, also finished her career as UNA ' s all-time leading free throw shooter, eighth leading scorer and fourth in assists. The season brought Byrd ' s four year career record at UNA to 74-37.

" Although the ten university Cheerleaders and four alternates re- ceive no credit hours or scholarship money for their hard work and dedica- tion, they put everything they have into each cheer, chant and dance rou- tine. It is a full time job. Tryouts were held in April, which not only required that the men and women be physically fit, but also that they have a 1.0 grade point average according to the Student Government Association ' s code of laws. Three to five unbiased off-campus judges (and one on-campus judge) selected the cheerleaders based strictly on skill. Shortly after tryouts, the group began to practice. In the spring they sponsored a clinic for area high school cheering squads. The summer ' s main focus was on preparing themselves for a trip to Memphis for a cheerleading camp, sponsored by the Universal Cheer- leaders Association. There the squad topped all other Division II groups as DIAMOND GIRLS — Front Row: Rebecca Aldridge.

Jeff White, Tim Causey. they were the only group to bring home three trophies for the week. They placed first with their fight song routine, and second with cheers and sideline chants. This enabled them to compete with 150 other squads by video cas- sette. They were ranked a close fourth, one place short of going on to national competition. Then came football season. Cheerleaders were faithful to every pep rally and game. They even trav- elled to McAllen, Texas to support the Lions in the MCAA Division II national finals in the Palm Bowl. They let the football players know that they were behind them 101 percent with encouraging posters on the practice field and ice water, snow cones, banana splits, or watermelon after practice. This was not a require- ment of the squad, but something they did because they wanted to. They didn ' t stop after they re- turned from McAllen, Texas, but went straight into basketball season, cheer- ing at all home games and pivotal away games. In March, when the basketball season drew to a close, the cheer- leaders began to concentrate on tryouts for the upcoming year Considering the playoffs in foot- ball and the large number of basket- ball home games, it is no wonder why Intramural-Recreational Director Ed- die Rivers described the squad as " a hard working group, who really put time and effort into what they ' re do- ing, and who has cheered more than any other group I ' ve had. " In their third year of service, the Diamond Girls have become an inte- gral part of the baseball games. Ac- cording to Coach Mike Lane, " They have made a significant contribution to our baseball system on campus and have helped tremendously with recruiting. " In the fall, the girls are selected. Their number one qualification is re- sponsibility. They must also be attrac- tive, outgoing, and able to represent the university well.

That is the question. Many college stu- dents have their minds made up even before they enter into their first se- mester of school. Those who do " go Greek " find themselves in a world of new friends, great parties, and loads of work. While the old " Ani- mal House " image of fra- ternities is fading, many refuse to acknowledge these organizations for anything other than " beer frats. " But the Greek sys- tem, installed 14 years ago on campus, has ll proved to be much more. Of those first founded, (seven have remained and flourished, becoming inte- gral parts of many stu- dents ' lives, as well as ac- tive voices on campus. From these organizations have come leaders who have taken the initiative and helped mold, not only the Greek system, but the university as a whole. The members of Kappa Sig- ma, Alpha Phi Alpha, Sig- ma Chi, Alpha Tau Ome- ga, Kappa Alpha Psi, Pi Kappa Alpha, and Phi Gamma Delta are proud of their many contribu- tions and accomplish- ments. The Lambda Omi- cron chapter of Kappa Sigma proved them- selves to be a success, both academically and so- cially. Many hours of hard work and a great amount of determination go into every endeavor undertak- en by the chapter. The Kappa Sigs took top honors in the male Greek division of Step- Sing with a rousing salute to the " Ladies of UNA " . According to Presi- dent Gary Grisham, much of the chapter ' s continued success lies within each member. " Our ties of brotherhood and friend- ship seem to inspire all of our members to pull to- gether and put 110 per- cent into everything we do. " Grisham added, " PHo matter how small or insig- nificant it may seem at the time, if it is important to one of us, it ' s important to all of us. " One of the Kappa Sigs ' main activities is their fight against diabe- tes, which they support with their annual Dribble- A-Thon. It is one of their biggest projects and in- Bob Crisp ALPHA PHI ALPHA — Front Row: Harry Shelton, Terence McLin. Back Row: George B. Long, Gregory X.

The Kappa Sigs raised around $1500 for the Diabetes Association and have set a goal of no less than $3000 for the next Dribble-A-Thon. Bahama Mama 1985 was one of the hottest so- cial events of the season. Over 500 students and faculty members attend- ed the event, which fea- tured the popular band, " Chase. " Tonya Russell was chosen Bahama Mama 1985 with Andrea Williams as first runner- up. Holding true to their long standing tradition of compassion and concern for others. Alpha Phi Al- pha continues to thrive while helping others along the way. Campus and community activities throughout the year re- flect the fraternity ' s dedi- cation toward these goals. Underprivileged chil- dren are, and always have been, a deep concern with the chapter, which always holds fund raisers and overall fun events to raise money for the area kids. Another endeavor which has come to be a proud tradition of the chapter is the annual Miss Black and Gold pageant held in the Great Hall. Kathy Parker was crowned, not only local winner at the p ageant, but state winner as well. Alpha Phi Alpha member George Long re- presents his fraternity well, holding the SGA of- fice of vice-president. KATHY PARKER beams after being named Miss Black and Gold.

Thomas, the national Worthy Grand Chief, visited the Theta Etas as part of a tour through Alabama. Thomas met with campus officials and was given a reception at the ATO house. He said he was already familiar with UNA, having helped found the Theta Eta chap- ter in 1971. Thomas said he had noticed several changes for the better. " I have seen a school grow from a non-Greek en- vironment in the early 70s to a visible Greek environ- ment, " said Thomas. Contributing to a community service, the ATOs helped raise ap- proximately $ 1 300 for the Muscle Shoals Rehabilita- tion Center and Safeplace by working together with the Kappa Rho Chapter of ESA to host a dunking booth at the North Ala- bama State Fair. The ATO pledges also did clean-up and yard work around Safeplace as part of their initiation dur- ing ATO ' s " Help Week. " The Theta Etas didn ' t forget about the university, however, as several members were ac- tive in campus affairs. Mark Manush, the ATO president previously served as the president of the IFC when that group initiated dry rush. Todd Gatewood, the ATO keeper of the exche- quer, served as the IFC vice-president. Tripp Storm, the ATO scribe, served as the SAB Publicity Chairman, and has his cartoon series " Geek-world " published weekly in the Flor-Ala. Brett Davis, the keeper of annals, served as the Executive Editor of the Flor-Ala. Graham Sisson, the ATO sentinel, served as the treasurer of the SGA. These activities, and the usual parties, did not get in the way of studying, however, as Manush said that the Theta Eta ' s gradepoint average was above the all-men ' s aver- age. " This has been a good year, one of our best, " said Manush. " And we ' re looking forward to even better things.

B ROTHERLY BOND ,con.inue., Pi Kappa Alpha Kappa Alpha Psi Service projects and hours of unselfish work are two things the mem- bers of Kappa Alpha Psi can relate to. Always for the benefit of others, its members continue in their longstanding tradi- tions of campus and com- munity involvement. Area children who come from needy or un- derprivileged homes can always count on the mem- j bars of Kappa Alpha Psi I for a helping hand. The j group organizes service I projects such as trips for those children to Florence ballgames. Kappa Alpha , Psi also supports the Christian Children ' s Fund and sponsors a child over- seas. Through such acts, each member seems to grow and gain a little something out of each ex- perience. The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity was founded on Sunday evening, March 1, 1868 at the University of Virginia. Pike has always stressed brotherhood as one of its main ideals. This feeling survives to- day in the Theta Alpha chapter on campus. The completion of the second house on Greek Row was a major accomplishment of the Pikes. The fraternity held several fundraisers to col- lect money for the ground breaking. According to President Gary Hayes, " It was hard doing without a house, but it was well worth the wait. " Pike had a great in- tramural season with the capture of the second place trophy in football. They also reached the fin- als in intramural basket- ball championships. The fraternity broth- ers showed their potential for leadership by having several members in Fresh- man Forum. Members were also present in the ranks of the SAB repre- sentatives and the SGA senators. Pike little sisters have done their share of work by helping with the fund-raising for the new house. Little sister Claudia Wear was elected Home- coming Queen. Willa Kay Duncan was chosen as Dream Girl and was fea- tured in the annual Dream Girl Calendar.

B ROTHERLY BOND (Continued) Phi Gamma Delta • Interfraternity Council Another Greek letter organization who believes in campus and communi- ty involvement is the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. The Phi Gams, better known as the Fijis, take pride in the fact that many of their members are prominent campus fig- ures. Some include SGA president Mark Sander- son, Mark McCormack who is Leo II, and cheer- leader Randy Lee. The Fijis held their annual " Fiji Island " party which proved to be a huge success. The evening fea- tured several live bands, including Chase. But the Fijis were also proving themselves worthy of their letters as they pitched in to help ob- tain a seeingeye dog for student Max McKinney. Academic excel- lence is an accomplish- ment for the members of Phi Gamma Delta in that their chapter average has exceeded the All Men ' s Average for the past four semesters. Anyone can attempt to pioneer new areas, but it takes hours of careful planning and competent leadership to carry out ideas, making them a re- ality. The Interfraternity Council is known as one of the state ' s top pioneers in many facets of Greek life. A successful " dry rush " program, the pro- motion of college Greek life, and dozens of new ideas have proved to keep them busy. Under the leadership of sponsor Dr. Daniel Lea- sure, the governing body for the campus ' s fraterni- ties has once again prov- en that with hard work and cooperation any orga- nization can flourish. — Richard Welborn THE AMPHITHEATRE was the spot for banners promoting Greek Week.

" Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi, the band fraternity and soror- ity, work handinhand to serve the band and pro- mote spirit. " Without them (Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi) we would not function, " said drum ma- jor Gen Gen Martin. Halftime shows are a challenge. According to Bill Redding, the band plays music that at- tempts to please the crowd rather than them- selves.

The band has hosted the Alabama Bandmaster i Association State Compe- tition and a solo and en- semble contest for high school students in north Alabama. Jeanna Aycock, head majorette, sees more motivation in the Major- ettes and the band as a i whole than ever before. " We feel close to the band. We ' re not just an outside segment, but a part of it, " she said. The majority of the Lionettes had never marched before. Head Lionette Elaine Cox re- calls playing members helping the Lionettes to learn to march. That help reinforced to her that the auxiliaries have a good re- lationship with all band members. Alda White, head of the flag team, believes the Flag Corps is the best it has ever been. " We have new uniforms, " she said. " We feel good about our- selves, and it helps us do a better job. " The Concert Band ' s major objective is to per- form major band work. They practice the same amount as the marching band and most concert band members are in the m arching band as well. They perform two concerts a year on cam- pus, playing anything from twentieth century Sousa marches to clas sics. The purpose of the Jazz Band is to educate its members on jazz litera- ture and jazz style. This is the first year it has been active all year long and there are hopes of going on tour.

M USICALLY INCLINED by Kellie Little Collegiate Singers IPS Music Educators National Conference What organization practices nearly every day, Is yelled at, humiliat- ed, and praised by their " coach, " and has a better record than the number one team In the Gulf South Conference? Ask Joe Groom and he ' s likely to answer, " My Collegiate Singers. " Meeting four days a week for an hour, these students work hard for the one hour ' s credit they receive. " It ' s fun, " said one student. " He yells but he ' s a good conductor. " Another student said, " Practicing the same music every day can get old, but It ' s worth it. " The choir opened their season with a splen- did contribution to the half-time show of the Liv- ingston game. They per- formed " Battle Hymn of the Republic " and were accompanied by the Pride of Dixie Marching Band and a fireworks display. The group also per- formed a medley of hits from the 1920s and 30s at the Homecoming Alumni Luncheon. Their biggest perfor- mance of the semester however, was their fall concert held in Norton Auditorium. " It ' s really what we ' ve spent most of our time preparing for, " said veteran member Me- lissa Glalster. Backstage at the per- formance, she said, " It ' s definitely our longest per- formance. " Most members agree that being a Collegiate Singer is worth the daily practice, the yelling, the heat during performances and any other frustration involved. " Oh, it ' s not that bad, " said member Angle Dorough, " Really he ' s (Mr. Groom) pretty funny. He lets us know he ' s particu- lar about things and says, ' Serious! You ' ve got to be serious! ' " The Music Educa- tors National Conference (MENC) provides stu- dents with an excellent opportunity through cam- pus activities of the chap- ter and participation in state and national meet- ings. According to spon- sor Dr. Sue Ellen Teat, the club helps Its members by allowing them to contact leaders of their profes- sion. Activities include selling coke cans to raise money to support a mu- sic scholarship fund and sponsoring local and state band contests. " Inches per second " is a term commonly used by commercial music ma- jors. It refers to tape speed and Is the basis for the ti- tle of the commercial mu- sic students ' organization, the IPS. " We ' re not yet recog- nized as an organization on campus, " said vice- president BUI Russell. " But we ' re working on It. " The purpose of the commerical music pro- gram is to keep members informed of current events In the music Indus- try, support the Muscle Shoals music industry. and serve as a catalyst to- ward helping members reach professional goals. Working toward their goal of wide recognition, IPS made their first entry in the Homecoming pa- rade. " Amateur Jam Night, " better known as " Am Jam, " has become a tradition for the group. Commercial music ma- jors and other talented musicians meet at Ren- nie ' s Southern Touch in Sheffield just to enjoy each other ' s music. Don Palmer served as president.

" Postero spoke to the group gathered at the Florence Executive Inn. The Broadcasting Club is composed of all those interested in the television and radio me- dia, whether they be a stu- dent or an anchorman. For most Radio Te- levision Film majors, Al- pha Epsilon Rho is the link between the class- room and the industry. The national broadcasting honorary expects mem- bers to promote profes- sionalism and excellence in the broadcasting indus- try The 26 member AERho chapter has earned national recogni- tion for its student pro- ductions and projects, and many local busin- esses utilize the talent by hiring students to coordi- nate and produce public service announcements or short documentaries. In addition, students participate in all aspects of television production in various classes, and most AERho members have completed internships in the industry or currently are employed in some area of the media. " We are not interest- ed in getting big crowds to see recent blockbuster films with Sylvester Stal- lone or somebody, " said Dr. Thomas Osborne, as- sistant professor of histo- ry He was speaking of the UNA Cinema Society, a campus organization that is dedicated to bring- ing historically significant films to the campus. " We try to show films that are not avail- able to students any other way, " said Osborne. " The Cinema Society ' s selec- tions are not likely to ap- pear on TV or in the movie theaters.

" The Cinema Society, which is supported by the Student Activities Board, spends about $100 on each film. Admission is free with a student I.D., but other admission money goes for such expenses as UPS shipping charges and the projectionist ' s salary. " We never pay for our films with the admis- sions, " said Osborne, who said that the society often loses money on the films. " It ' s a fact of life for film societies in most schools that they don ' t break even, " Osborne said. But that doesn ' t seem to stop the Cinema Society. The technical theatre fraternity, Tau Epsilon Kappa, is an extremely active organization. Mem- bers have been participat- ing in projects ranging from the SOAR show to the university production of Romeo and Juliet. Tau Epsilon Kappa is open to students who are interested in the study Alpha Psi Omega and operation of the tech nical half of theatre pro- duction. " Such a large part of a production is the lighting, scene design, and execution of a play, " said member Penny Lin- ville. During Romeo and Juliet TEK members put in hundreds of man hours preparing for the show be- fore the actors even got a chance to set a foot on stage. " When we did Ro- meo and Juliet it was de cided that a performance of the show would be done in Hartselle, Ala- bama for the local school district. This required the technical crew to go down a day early to do set ad- justing. It was a great learning experience for everybody, " said Linville. TEK is also responsi- ble for some of the changes in the Miss UNA pageant which featured a new stage and lighting de- sign. In its second year since being reactivated on campus, the Zeta Rho Chapter of Alpha Psi Omega continues to grow. Alpha Psi Omega is the national dramatic arts fraternity for university theatre students. To be considered f( membership each studet must serve in at least tw university theatre produ tions and acquire a mir mum number of points " We ' ve got a lot talent in Alpha Psi th year and we ' re looking fc ward to being able to put to use, " said presider Jayne Anne Miller.

The afternoon quiet of the EducationMursing Build- ing is broken suddenly by the sound of voices lifted in song — " Aliens, en- fants de la patrie, le jour de gloire est arrive ... " French Club presi dent Julie Martin credits club member Polly Gart- man with the idea of be- ginning each meeting with the French national anthem, " La Marseil- laise. " The rousing spirit of the song seems to have affected the organization. " There was a lot more participation this year than in the past, " said Martin. " People real- ly seemed to enjoy them- selves. " Weekly meetings are " more of a learning expe- rience than just a get-to- gether, " according to Mar- tin. Through guest speak- ers, slide shows, and reports, members learned about such diverse topics as French painter Tou- louse-Lautrec, French Canada, and the exper- iences of fellow students who studied at the Univer- sity of Mice last summer. The annual Christ- mas party was held at the home of French Club ad- viser Dr. Max Gartman. The Great Hall was the scene of pre-Lenten revelry last February as the German Club and its guests celebrated Fasch- ing, the German equiv- alent of Mardi Gras. Mem- bers of the organization demonstrated German folk dances while tradi- tional German music played. Later, everyone sat down to an authentic German meal. The Fasching festivi- ties were just one activity of the busy German Club. " It ' s an exciting club to belong to, " said Joe Roper, German Club trea- surer. " There is some- thing for just about every- one interested in Ger- many or German culture. " In the fall, members celebrated another Ger- man festival, Oktober- fest. The German Club sponsored the series of German-made classic films shown throughout the year in the Media Cen- ter. Among the films shown were " The Blue Angel " and " The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. " The weekly " Kaffee- Klatsch, " or club meet- ing, gave members an- other opportunity to learn about German culture outside of class. At the annual Span- ish Club Christmas party, held at the home of advis- er Paul Jones, club mem- bers mingled with native speakers of the language. " There are many Spanish speaking people living in the area, " said Jones. " In meeting and speaking with them, stu- dents are able to put to use what they ' ve learned in the classroom. That ' s very important. " A similar opportuni- ty is available to students each Wednesday after- noon. Informal " rap ses- sions " , supported by the Spanish Club, are con- ducted entirely in Span- ish, led by Colombian- born student Jenny Ham- mond. Open to all persons, the Spanish Club meets once a month for more formal programs. One fall meeting featured a slide show and lecture on the Mayan and Aztec civiliza- tions presented by Dr. Bill Strong of the geography department. " I try to incorporate as much Spanish civiliza- tion as possible, " said Jones.

" It was a little bit out of our realm, but the stu- dents wanted to do it, " Jones said. The amount of po- ems, short stories, and es- says submitted for the an- nual student writers con- test, which awards nearly $200 in prizes, grows ev- ery year. Many people don ' t realize that the prize money comes out of the English Club ' s treasury. " We hope we ' ll be in a secure enough financial position to increase the awards next year, " said English Club president Tamsie Weems. Winning manu- scripts are published in Lights Shadows, the university ' s national award-winning literary art magazine, co-spon- sored by the English Club and the art department. " We really wanted to make Lights Shadows more visible this year, " Weems said. " To promote it, we distributed it at lo- cal bookstores and ar ! museums and gave ou j copies at senior day. " The second annua campus Writers ' Confer; ence in May was co-sponj sored by the English Club i and members took an ac tive part in the event They hosted an auto graph reception for the guest authors, sole books, and promoted the conference in the commu nity. In October, English Club members joinec forces with Sigma Tau Delta National English Honor Society for their an nual used book sale. The English honor-i ary ' s campus chapter in creased in size this year when the national organi- zation decided to open its membership, previously confined to English ma- jors and minors, to all stu- dents who meet the other requirements. " Anyone who has completed at least one 300-level English class, has a B-average in Eng- lish, and ranks in the top 20 percent of his class is now eligible to join, " said Sigma Tau Delta presi- dent Graham Sisson. " It ' s good recognition for ex- cellent English students. " Edward Thomas ENGLISH CLUB — Front Row; Jack Kingsbury. Jessie Wha len. Brett Davis, Michele Sav age, Mary Phillips, Melissa Mor well.

D EADLINE DUTY by Keith Brooks Flor-Ala Diorama • Lights and Shadows • SCJ • Photographers Club Experience is the best, and worst, teacher. Meeting deadlines comes as second nature to exper- ienced writers. On the oth- er hand, last minute changes in an edition of the paper can cause con- siderable anxiety. The members of the Flor-Ala newspaper staff understand changes, and it is their job to keep stu- dents informed of current campus issues. Some re- cent stories include in- depth coverage of class cancellations and the new advising system. " i don ' t think of the Flor-Ala as just a campus newspaper, " said execu- tive editor Brett Davis, " it is a newspaper in its own right. " The Flor-Ala is a weekly publication, aver- aging 15 editions per se- mester. In recent years The Flor-Ala has been consistently classified as " All-American " by the As- sociated Collegiate Press SOCIETY FOR COLLEGIATE JOURNALISTS — Front Row: Michele Savage, Bob Crisp, Bryan Hill. Back Row: Brenda J. Hill, Clark Perry, Brett Davis. DIORAMA STAFF member Mark Hester copies a practice layout sheet onto its final draft. Being a staff member often re- quires many late nights in order to meet deadlines. and the paper has gar nered awards from many organizations including the National Society for Collegiate Journalists. Associate editors for the campus newspaper are Clark Perry and Sandy Jackson. Executive edi- tor Davis is a junior major- ing in journalism and pho- tography. " Most of the mem- bers of the Flor-Ala staff are journalism majors or minors, " said student pub- lications adviser Brenda J. Hill. " But, this is not a requirement and in fact we encourage students from all schools of study to become involved in stu- dent publications. " Members of the Dio- rama staff do come from many different back- grounds. Gnlike the news- paper staff, most are not journalism students. Jayne Anne Miller, executive editor of the yearbook, is a senior ma- joring in technical theatre and studio art. According to director of publications Mary Beth Eck, Miller ' s background in studio art ■gives her an eye for a well-composed book. " Brenda Grisham, a ju- nior majoring in secon- dary education with con- centrations in mathemat- ics and speech communication and the- atre is associate editor. Brenda Hill is adviser. Members of the year- book staff represent every school on campus and most are active in several clubs, fraternities, and honorary societies. Staff members usually are as- signed to cover stories ac- cording to their interests. The Diorama consis- tently wins top honors from ACP and SCJ. " We ' re very proud of this book, " said Miller, who has worked on stu- dent publications for three years. " But awards aren ' t what we ' re really about. I just hope the stu- dent body will pick up the book and appreciate it. " Another award win- ning publication is the campus literary art mag- azine. Lights and Shad- ows — a yearly publica- tion sponsored by the de- partments of English and art on campus, in cooper- ation with the English Club. The publication con- tains prose, poetry and artwork. Fall literary and spring art contests are held to determine what works will be featured in the publication. Other written works are selected for inclusion by a student editorial board from the English Club. The magazine is stu- dent edited. This year ' s staff included Robert Cox, art editor; Vicki Bates, graphic designer; and Mike Clay, photographer. Faculty advisers for the publication are Mary Beth Eck, publications di- rector; John Kingsbury, English faculty adviser; and Ron Shady, art facul- ty adviser. The honorary organi- zation for students in- volved in campus publica- tions is the Society for Collegiate Journalists. As its service project SCJ publishes the sum- mer issue of the Flor-Ala for incoming freshmen. " We try to include ev- erything that a freshman would need to know about campus activities, organi- zations, and academics. We include a summary of the past year on campus so they ' ll know what they ' re in for, " said Mi- chele Savage, SCJ vice- president and associate editor of the SOAR news- paper. President of SCJ is Brett Davis. Brenda Hill is adviser. One of the newest or- ganizations on campus is the Photographers Club. The club was formed in IS spring and according (president John W. Mow- ed, the organization will sonsor field trips and pvide a forum for stu- (Ht photographers to ex- (ange creative ideas and trhnical knowledge. " Another club goal is I help beginning photog- rjhy students who don ' t iilly know what ' s going t, " said Howard. " We try tgive them tips on how t mount and present tiir photographs, for ex- nple. " The organization Eonsored a show in the hdia Center on Senior [y. The show featured »)rks from club mem- trs in various genres in- ciding photojournalism ed fine art photography.

Preprofessional ac- countants in Alpha Chi meet monthly to provide professional information that pertains to their cho- sen field. Meetings, orga- nized with the help of Mr. Paul Holley, may feature a speaker from the " nine to five " world, a field trip to the office of a local ac- [countant, or a discussion if the specialized prob- ems of changing tax laws. Alpha Chi is not all Iwork and no play, howev- T. The organization en- Itered a float in the home- [coming parade and held n awards banquet in the ispring. In affiliation with the iNational Association of ccountants. Alpha Chi wards the Outstanding ccounting Majors Achievement Award to the most deserving stu- dent. The CIS (Computer Information Systems) Organization is designed to standardize a difficult test to obtain a Certified Data Processing Certifi- cate. The certificate will soon become the national criteria for the computer profession. Members join the CIS organization to become the best in their field. They use their learning experiences to help them- selves become self-as- sured and self-reliant wage earners. With the help of Mr. Phillip Jones, the organi- zation is taking steps to become affiliated with the Data Processing Manage- ment Association. The CIS Organiza- tion and the Economics Finance Club plan a ski trip together in the fall and a Picnic Best Party in the Spring, which they call " the best of the spring semester. " The Economics Fin- ance Club, under sponsor- ship of Mr. Arthur James, has its own informational meetings to impress upon members the successful careers available in eco- nomics and finance. The members make field trips to places like the local Merrill-Lynch of- fice and the District Feder- al Reserve Bank in Bir- mingham. They have or- ganized special fund raisers for such philantro- phic endeavors as taking fruit to the local nursing homes. After a small lapse, Omicron Delta Epsilon, sponsored by Dr. Leonard Rychtanek, has been reor- ganized to promote honor- ary business majors who completed four business courses with at least a B average. Members of ODE have the privilege of writ- ing a research paper in the area of economics to be presented at the Conven- tion of Mid-South Aca- demics of Economics. Open to all business majors and minors is the largest business club on campus. Phi Beta Lamb- da, a national business club affiliated with the Fu- ture Business Leaders of America. PBL has an average of 80-100 mem- bers. Phi Beta Lambda and Alpha Chi alternate years conducting homecoming mum sales, putting their business training into practice. In April, with the help of sponsors Mrs. Donna Yancey, Rick Tho- mason, and Miss Brenda Massetti, Phi Beta Lamb- da members attended and competed in various areas of business in Mont- gomery at the state con- vention for all state uni- versities. They returned with a better knowledge of what their fields are all about as well as continu- ing to hold an excellent re- cord in the competition. To become better qualified in the " real world " , students in the Marketing Club, spon- sored by Dr. Keith Absher and Leon " Bud " Smith, have a specific program to guide their way. The purpose of the Marketing Club is to determine, de- velop, price, and promote a certain product. " Getting to know one another better " at Bud Smith ' s home got the Mar- keting Club off on the right foot. Other meetings in- cluded a guest speaker from a radio advertising company and a discus- sion about " real world " situations and how to han- dle them. In the spring, a se- quence of monthly meet- ings showed how diversi- fied the field of marketing can be for each individual taste or aptitude. Among these speak- ers were an industrialist, a representative from the Red Lobster manage- ment, and a television ad- vertising agent. Business students who are actively involved in an organization in their field of study, are serious about accomplishing the goals of their organiza- tions. ON A BUSY HOMECOMING and Vickie Doyle.

Still new to the SGA is the House of Represen- tatives, taking the place of the inter-president ' s Council and making the university ' s SGA one of the few bicameral SGAs in the South.

The SGA has stressed improving tradi- tional services such as the Student Handbook, Student Directory, Loan Program, and Refrigerator Rental Program. However, many new programs have been started also. The university had its first ever " Get on Board Day. " This allowed campus organizations to set up information booths in the Student Union Building to give students, as well as the community, an opportunity to see what campus organiza- tions are doing. The SGA also spon- sored the university ' s first student faculty Christ- mas party, which had al- most 100 people in atten- dance. In the fall, the base- ment of the SGA lounge was renovated, creating offices for the Chief Jus- tice, Speaker of the House, and Prosecutor. The SGA has also been involved in many community services, in- cluding assisting in mak- ing people more aware of the Safe-place Home for Domestic Violence, the campus blood drive and raising approximately $1000 for United Way. " There have been so many people who have STUDENT ACTIVITIES BOARD — Front Row: Pam England. Alan Bush. Chris Dobbs. Val Trimble. Elesia King. Back Row: Alan August. Tonya Mollis. Lisa Jackson.

To Becky Narmore, Alicia Smith, and numer- ous other students, the terms " Republican " and " Democrat " signify more than the two words which occupy spaces on a vo- ting ballot. The College Republi- cans have concentrated on supporting a candidate for the gubernatorial race in the fall while striving tc get Jeremiah Denton, i resident of Mobile, a seai in the U.S. Senate. " Vk e want to get stu dents involved in stat( politics, " explainec Becky Marmore, the presi dent of College Republi cans. " We want them tcl be proud of their countrj) and to show their sup port. " I Dr. Frank Mallonee the faculty adviser for tht Young Democrats, sale that student political con cern varies according tc the extent that the issue; affect them directly. The student loan cut was e very heated topic. " We (the Younc Democrats) try to stimui tintefi H acqiii tiewofki licant f cial syst! jovemitif cBlbeca Ihe Yo jivemon lolheai late interest in politics among those who are dennocraticali y oriented, " said Dr. Mallonee. " This objective is accomplished by acquiring speakers from both the regional and national level. " The democratic phi- losophy concentrates on the needs of humanity, ac- cording to Mallonee. The party doctrine states that the working man is a sig- nificant figure in the so- cial system and justifies governmental services. " I became a Demo- crat because I felt I bene- fited from the party ideo- logies, " said Alicia Smith. " The Young Democrats give more than lip-service to the art of politics. " Who controls the dial which tunes in live cam- pus concerts featuring John Cougar, Jefferson Starship, and The Roman- tics? The credit belongs to the Student Activities Board which tries to schedule two concerts each semester in addition to the other entertain- ment events which they offer to the student body.

" But when we have support from the student body, namely through the purchase of entertainment cards, we can have moderately big name groups.

The monetary factor involved in any entertain- ment project is not the only restricting element to be dealt with; the SAB is limited to the groups on tour in the area during the time frame that is avail- able. Th e most frustrating factor which they must continually battle is the fight against student apa- thy; the " suit-case col- lege " complex hangs like a heavy cloud above the heads of the Board as they spend long hours search- ing for a solution for mak- ing this campus a seven- day home for its students.

Organizations 269 D AWN TO DUSK by Elizabeth Ragsdale Commuters • RESA • Martial Arts • HaU Council Officers • Resident Assistants It ' s seven o ' clock on a weekday morning and the streets surrounding the campus are relatively calm. The multitude of empty parking spaces are occupied only by the fresh morning air. As the peaceful hour progresses this tranquil scene is sud- denly invaded by " them. " It ' s now the morning of the living dead. They emerge from all directions with " kill " on their lips and sleep in their eyes. A blaring horn is the most popular weapon, as the fight for the precious parking spaces begins. The living dead, the commuters, make up about 80 percent of the university ' s student body. Once the dreaded task of locating an avail- able (and legal) parking space is over, the fiends transform into smiling university students. " Trying to find a parking space is the worst part about school, and it puts me in a rotten mood, " said junior Penny Linville. While on campus. the commuters have a se- lection of locations to spend their spare time. Many of them use the Commuters Lounge locat ed in O ' Neal Hall. The Commuters or- ganization offers a list of activities designed to get students interested in Uni- versity affairs. The lounge sports a new pool table, foos ball, cards and a group of friendly universi- ty students. Joey May, as- sistant adviser said, " The lounge is opened to all uni- versity students. " Kevin Broadfoot said that the at- mosphere is " fun and re- warding. " O ' Meal Hall houses a room for another unique group of students known as RESA (Reentering Students Association). It is a group of adults seek- ing higher education for the second time. The members range from ages twenty to fifty who are mainly education, busi- ness, and nursing majors. The room provides a place for RESA students to relax and chat between classes, allowing the RICE HALL COUMCIL — Front Row: Pam Jones. Christine Kunhart, Sharon Nunn. Sheri Moore. Susan L. Weaver.

" Being parents, hav- ing jobs, and being older separates us from the average college crowd, " said Sandra Baskins, RESA president. She has a husband, three children, and carries an eighteen hour load. " It ' s comfort- ing to know that there are others like me struggling to maintain good grades and caring for a family at the same time. " Regardless of age, education is available for those willing to work for it. And the students of RESA are a shining exam- ple that it is never too late to learn. As the day turns into the evening, three build- ings stand overlooking the campus, storing pre- cious memories that no other building on campus can boast. Their walls see students grow and change, hear their inner- most secrets, but can tell no one what they know. They are LaGrange, Rice, and Rivers Halls. Before the fall family moved in, the rooms were bare, small, and unappeal- ing. But the eager " dor- mies " rushed in and tried their first unadvised tal entsat interior decorating. The results were fascinat- ing. The rooms developed into unique extensions of each individual student that Mom might never al- low at home. After the resident birds had settled into their college nests, they ven- tured into the halls to get acquainted with their sur- rounding neighbors: neighbors who grew into college pals and perhaps lifelong friends. Rice Hall houses a majority of independent students, due to the ren- ovated Powers Hall, which now houses soror- ity members. Shcrri Moore, Rice Hall presi- dent, said that " the girls, regardless of age, major, or social affiliation, inevi- tably grow closer during the semester. " The male residents occupying Rivers Hall sur- prisingly strive to give their assigned room touch of home. " I think that the idei of ' suitcase college ' I out, " said Steve Rogers Rivers Hall resident " Most all the guys hart around over the weeken to be with friends or sirr ply to relax. " " A family atmc sphere fills the halls of L Grange, " said presider ' Lisa Reeder. An array c appealing activities are o fered to the LaGrange res dents which bring th girls closer together. Aerc bicizing on Monday nigh or sharing a Thanksgivin dinner, the girls contini ously work together t form lasting bonds o friendship. The hall council i constantly arranging events to unite the thre ' dormitories. Festive occe sions such as Halloweei and Homecoming allov the residents to work tc gether. Other unitini events include food fo finals, step sing, intrami- ral sports and fall ano spring flings.

" One new policy that iiJ has benefitted the resi- eft dents this year is includ- ing the activity fee in the total room rent price. This enables the students to enjoy all resident activi- ties which are offered without worrying about an extra payment. The dead of night on campus, like anywhere else, is not always safe. If a student were attacked by a crazed person, that student might wish he were a member of the Martial Arts Club. The club is a group of defense-conscious indi- viduals who practice the hi art of Tang Soo Do. Martial Arts requires letlan intense degree of con- loi centration, along with It strength and flexibility. These characteristics are : ' !obtained through hours of practice and self disci- Ipline.

QPECIAL STUDIES by Wendy Woodfin El W American Home Economics Association • Fashion Forum Association of Young Children KOPhi Council for Exceptional Children • ' PE Majors Club KDPi • MENC All teachers need to know more about their specialized fields of study than what is taught in the classroom. That is why the Physical Education Majors Club traveled to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, to learn to snow ski and why the Council of Exception- al Children worked to ob- tain clothing for needy mentally retarded chil- dren in area public schools. The Student Home Economics Association, sponsored by Dr. Kay Ab- bott, works closely with the American Home Eco- nomics Association to form an umbrella group that teaches ways to be most effective in home economics. Majors spe- cializing in everything from fashion to nutrition learn to help others by promoting family unity and how to help them- selves by coping with fu- ture job opportunities. With about 30 mem- bers, the club meets at least once a month to plan service projects such as the Halloween bake sale. During Easter, they held a service project for an area nursing home. The state convention of American Home Eco- nomics Association was held in Birmingham where local student Cindy Campbell was elected state parlimentarian. Preparation for em- ployment in the world of fashion demands first- hand experience as well as classroom instruction. Fashion Forum provides the opportunity to ex- plore the fashion industry and supplement what stu- dents have learned in the classroom. Members travelled to Atlanta to learn from the Atlanta Home Furnishing Market how the future market will be shaped. After presenting a local fashion show at the Ritz Theatre in March to pro- mote community spirit, the Fashion Forum went back to Atlanta and toured the Atlanta Fash- ion Market. During spring break, members of the group ventured to New York City and discovered the heart of their intended field. They toured Macy ' s, Bloomingdale ' s, and other famous department stores while visiting the " Big Apple. " " The trip made me realize that I definitely made the right career choice, " said Andrea Wil- liams, fashion merchan- dising major. The honorary home economics organization. Kappa Omicron Phi, pro motes scholastics, leader- ship, and service, accord- ing to sponsor Dr. Jean Dunn. They work to main- tain the Mary D. Huss Scholarship Fund and support the Crossmore, North Carolina, Under- privileged Children ' s Fund by having a Christ- mas bazaar. They also promote home economics skills by giving out bumper stick- ers which read " Life Skills for Lifegiving. " KOPhi members constantly strive to live up to their motto: " Prove all things, hold fast to the truth, and the truth shall set you free. " The Association of Young Children, under the leadership of Dr. Rob- ert Foster is a club that deals with developing the individuals who will be in charge of America ' s chil- dren. As they begin their professional careers, members learn what op- portunities are available and how to choose the best for them as an indi- vidual. As a part of the Shoals Association for Young children, each member is provided pro- fessional training oppor- tunities and social occa- sions to help make deci- sions into a most challenging and reward- ing career. According to spon- sor Dr. James Burney, the Counci l of Exceptional Children is the only chap- ter in Lauderdale, Colbert, and Franklin counties. This provides a good framework around which any student interested in exceptional children can get quality answers in their field. The council spon- sors programs that fea- ture speakers of area insti- tutions for handicapped children. They sponsored a Christmas party for the mentally retarded at Allen Thornton Trade School in Lauderdale County. Kappa Delta Pi is an honorary education club for undergraduates, but includes graduate mem- bers. Dr. Jack Crocker sponsors this group to help the excelling stu- dents of education. The meetings are in- formative or social to pro- vide the best ways of communicating excel- lence in education. They schedule program work- shops to help all area teachers and student teachers be the best they can be. The most physically fit club on campus has to be the Physical Educa- tion Majors Club, co- sponsored by Don McBrayer and Kathy Price. It provides mem- bers with aspects of their chosen careers. The club stays busy while enjoying camp-outs and all-nighters. Dr. Mike Livingston treated PE ma- jors with a cookout at his home. In November, the club had a Thanksgiving dinner with almost 70 people in attendance. They also sponsored a dance for the American Heart Association to em- phasize the importance of health. THE WILLIS J. BAUGHMAN AWARD is given annually to the outstanding physical education majors club in Alabama, and the UNA club has won the award for four of the past five years.

The scientific organizations on campus allow students to apply this knowledge in situa- tions which will be helpful in their prospective ca- reers. Even though spare time for socializing is near extinction in student nurs- ing, the Student Nursing Organization members develop lifelong friend- ships among themselves. " When you ' re work- ing to save lives you natu- rally become extremely close to everyone work- ing with you, " said Willie Mae Jackson, adviser of the organization. The stu- dents strive together to maintain good grades and lend a hand to those who have problems with a par- ticular subject. The group treated the children of Eliza Cof- fee Memorial Hospital with Halloween goodies. They also sold Care Bears to raise money for local health units. The Astronomy Club enjoys studying the solar system and some- times discovering celes- tial bodies unknown to them before the course. The group partici- pates in such activities as the Variable Star Search program and the Nova Search. Membership has in- creased drastically over the last four years. The hybrid tomato plants grown in the cam- pus greenhouse is one project of Beta Beta Beta. one of the oldest organiza- tions on campus. Another fund-raiser for the group is the foot- ball programs sold in the fall. The group uses funds raised each year to send members to the national convention, and prepara- tions for a scholarship fund are being made. An interest in phys- ical science is the only re- quirement for joining the Society of Physics Stu- dents. The organization promotes interest in the science of physics on campus. Through special speakers and films the so- ciety develops scientific skills which aren ' t learned in class. The American Chemical Society in- volves chemistry stu- dents in learning activities such as a planetarium shop on Halley ' s Comet and lectures from area chemists on their work fields. The November meet- ing was called " Home- coming 1985 " and the group enjoyed two speak- ers who are alumni of the university. One special event sponsored by the club is the High School Chemis- try Contest. Members of ACS test the young chem- istry students; the stu- dent earning the highest score is invited to the yearly banquet held in the spring. The activities of the scientific organizations on campus make it clear that the university harbors a group of determined stu- dents, our scientists of to- morrow.

Stu- lents applying newly ch- ained knowledge outside he classroom have an ob- ious " edge " over the sst. The social science lubs give students the pportunity to observe heir chosen fields of tudy in real-life situa- ons. Sociology is the tudy of the world and its ■eople. Through monthly neetings, discussions nd guest speakers, the iociology Club magnifies HARLES MOORE talks to the listory Club about prehistoric idians in the Shoals area. He ■poke during the club ' s tour of -le Indian Mound Museum in lorence. situations that have been merely " touched on " in class. The first meeting this fall was a " get-to-know- one-another " cookout held at McFarland Park. This traditional gathering gave the group a chance to plan the semester of events while enjoying hot dogs by the river. The second sched- uled meeting was held at Miss Pauline Gravlee ' s home. H.S. Abdul-Hadi en- lightened the group with slides from the Middle and Far East. Rick Thompson, Florence chief of police, was the guest speaker at the November meeting. Thompson shared his knowledge in the field of criminal justice and opened the floor for dis- cussion. The final meet- ing of the semester was a Christmas feast at the home of Dr. Jerry DeGre- gory. Whether visiting the Indian Mound Museum, or the Joe Wheeler Home in Lawrence County, the History Club strives to make history come to life. In addition to these historical field trips, the club has heard such speakers as Henry Wallis talk about The Forks of Cypress and Charles Moore help shed light on the Indian Mound Muse- um. For the spring semes- ter the club plans to visit Vicksburg and Ole Miss. For the first time in its history, the Geography Club entered a 40 foot float in the homecoming parade. The huge float. carrying a globe, a bridge, and a model of Wesleyan Hall, brought a second place trophy to the proud members. The club also sponsored a homecoming celebration for their graduates. The group enjoyed fellowship when touring the Jack Daniels Distill- ery and the Saturn Plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Social work involves working closely with peo- ple and helping them make life easier to deal with. The Social Work Or- ganization sponsored a puppet show concerning child abuse. The demon- stration urged the chil- dren to speak out if abuse or neglect was present in their lives. The club also spon- sors a help group for vic- tims of SIDS (Sudden In- fant Death Syndrome). By raising funds through projects such as selling Christmas wreaths, the club helps families of the infants born with this con- dition. Students who are po- litically oriented make up the Political Science Club. This organization, led by Dr. Frank Mallonee, helps the students start volunteer internships with local, state and feder- al government bodies. " The students are learning while getting job experience at the same time, " said Malonee. After graduation, stu- dents find that " on the job " in the real world is somewhat different from the sheltered classroom. The social science clubs on campus give students experience outside the classroom and prepare them for life after college. POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB — Front Row: Becky Narmore. Alicia Smith. Henry J.

" Let the love of learn- ing rule mankind. " The motto of the 88-year-old honor society causes the members of Phi Kappa Phi to realize more fully their own special skills and potentialities. At a Thursday night banquet sixteen students and four faculty members were initiated into the so- ciety. Those attending were privileged to listen to the speech of East Cen- tral Region chapter vice president. Dr. John W. Warren. A key point brought to the attention of mem- bers during Dr. Warren ' s " Locus of Excellence " speech was " We have per- sonal freedom to gain through learning.

T HEY ' RE THE TOPS by Cathy Saint Alpha Lambda Delta • KME • ODK • Scabbard and Blade • Phi Eta Sigma A letter arrives in the mail, an invitation. You answer it and pay your dues, becoming a mem- ber. That sounds simple enough. What ' s so special about being in an honor society? The process sounds easy, but it comes at the end of a long hard journey through stacks of books, battalions of teachers and hundreds of tests. It in- volves studying when you had much rather be at the latest movie with friends. The mailboxes of truly dedicated students wait with precious contents while the boxholder keeps late hours in Collier Li- brary. The Kappa Mu Epsi- lon member spends his time in Collier getting cozy with his math books. The mathematics honor society plans quite a few events during the year to encourage closeness among students in the mathematics fields. Spring Initiation was also the setting for the fif- tieth anniversary celebra- tion of the Alabama Beta Chapter of Kappa Mu Ep- silon. Dr. James L. Smith, national president of KME, was the speaker for this March event in the Great Hall. Mew officers were elected at a May picnic where members enjoyed volleyball games and Triv- ial Pursuit games togeth- er. The courtyard of the Math Building was the scene for the Fall " re- union " reception held by KME for student mem- bers and teachers to reac- quaint after a summer free of KME events. " I have gotten to know the teachers better through KME, " said KME historian Beth Henderson, " and I probably would have only known half as many otherwise. I also have closer relationships with other students in my field. " Another reason KME membership is advanta- geous to a mathematics student was summed up by Kim Whitt. " Being in Kappa Mu Epsilon en courages me to strive for excellence. " The freshman opens his mailbox to discover his 2.5 or better grade point average has paid off. Inside is an invitation from the freshman honor society Phi Eta Sigma. What else does mem- bership in Phi Eta Sigma do, besides reward aca- demic excellence? Ac- cording to member DeWana Compton, " It lets freshmen feel they ' ve be- come a part of the univer- sity through their mem- bership in one of its orga- nizations. " Phi Eta Sigma shared an April 16th initiation banquet with Alpha Lambda Delta. The dean of faculty and instruction. Dr. Eugene Jabker, was guest speaker. Phi Eta Sigma and sister honor so- ciety for freshmen, Alpha Lambda Delta, overlap quite a bit, since the re- quirements for member- ship are almost identical. Alpha Lambda Delta " advertises " itself in a fall reception which encour- ages incoming freshmen to work hard to attain a high GPA, the distinctive characteristic of the dedi- cated student. Sophomore member, Lana Downey said, " It gives freshmen some- thing to work for, an in- centive, and (as fresh- men) we knew if we kept our QPAs up we could be- come a part of it (Alpha Lambda Delta). " Connie Hayes Faulk- ner was the graduating se- nior member with the highest grade point aver- age of the year. She was recognized during the May graduation ceremo- ny by Alpha Lambda Del- ta for her maintenance of a 3.0 GPA throughout her college career. Walking into the chapel among the black- robed figures was a sol- emn yet festive occasion for initiates of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society chapter of the university. The figures robed in black were ODK officers and members, each of whom had been through the same procedure as initi- ates only a year previous- ly. i Omicron Delta Kappa is quite an active society. Included in their year of events was the set- up of a refreshment booth used in conjunction with Coca-Cola during Spring) Fling relays, an end-of-the III year May picnic at the s " ' ' ' ' home of Billie Thomas, il« and attendance of the re- gional convention hosted in Montevallo Attending the con- vention were Dr. Daniel Leasure, Dr. Bill Strong, Lisa Keys, Cliff Wright, Lisa Sharp, Tamsie Weems, and Regina Ruth- erford. According to ODK! President Cliff Wright, the purpose of the organiza- tion is " to recognize and promote leadership, ser vice, and scholarship. " Wright said people! should be encouraged to work to join because, " Itl is one of the most presti gious organizations on campus. You have to: jeyeat meet three qualifications! lesinfr instead of one, as most ip old tii other organizations. " A visitor to an ODK initiation ceremony will agree, Omicron Deltaijl( rs.

Organizations 281 H ELPING HAND by Cathy Jackson Alpha Sigma Lambda • Circle K • Ushers Club • Golden Girls Ambassadors How would you best describe a service organi- zation? " A service organiza- tion is composed of peo- ple who care about those less fortunate than them- selves, " said Jerri Ewell, president of Circle K. " People in Circle K are willing to give time to make someone happy; just to do things that most people won ' t do without pay. " In comparison to Cir- cle K and Alpha Sigma Lambda which frequently work in conjunction with national benefits, the uni- versity Gshers, Golden Girls and Ambassadors are primarily restricted to campus service. Members of the uni- versity Ushers work at Norton Auditorium activi- ties, football and basket- ball games, and gradu- ation. Their main responsi- bility is to maintain order and organization during situations which other- wise might be chaotic. University Usher Jeff Furno stressed the fact that membership is by faculty invitation only. Another helping hand is offered: their offi- cial titles are " hosts and hostesses of the universi- ty. " As Dr. Guillot ' s aides, the Golden Girls and Am- bassadors act as recep- tionists and tour guides for important visitors and attend VIP luncheons as representatives of the stu- dents. Each member of the organization is required to work one hour per week in the administration of- fice during which time he or she is on-call. Golden Girl Lisa Rogers explained the responsibilities of be- ing on the team. " We must know the history of the school and all aspects of university life, " said Rogers. There is a yearly retreat for all Golden Girls and Ambas- sadors to give the group a thorough understanding of the university. Each applicant must be a sophomore with at least a 1 .25 GPA. An inter- view is conducted by both faculty and community leaders to screen appli- cants. The Golden Girls and Ambassadors collect money at home football games for Leo ' s mainte- nance. Branching into the community. Alpha Sigma Lambda represents the university as service lead- ers. Pam McCormick, the president of Alpha Sigma Lambda, takes pride in her 40 members and the contributions they have made working with Safe- place (a home for battered wives), the Salvation Army during Christmas and Halloween, and the Heart Association. " Many people don ' t know we exist, " said McCormick. " But I feel we are looked upon highly by those in the communi- ty and campus that are aware of our abilities as a service organization. " " Many of the ser- vices we provide enable families to have a touch of happiness they wouldn ' t have felt other- wise. " A genuine love and concern for others prompted Jerri Ewell to join Circle K. He has since become president of the Kiwanis Club affiliate or- ganization. When not at the Chil- dren ' s Home in Kill en, at Mitchell-Hollingsworth Nursing Home playinc bingo with its residents, participating in the March of Dimes Telethon, spending time with the women at Safeplace, Cir cle K members are put ting forth some type of ef fort to aid their fellow man. The club is deter mined to enlarge its mem bership and invites any one able to spare somel time to join the organiza tion and help the campus| and community better it self. In a society of comi petition, pressures, and discouragement, it isl comforting to know that there are groups of people who want to help and sup port those in need of a helping hand. I T : .l •- ' .

It is evident as people on cam- pus and in the community are excited about stiaring tiieir faith. The Baptist Student Union is more than just a place to relax and more than just another campus organization. The BSU has a purpose on campus, and BSCIers are con- cerned with others around them. The BSa sent out summer missionaries throughout the country and one overseas to " serve the Lord by serv- ing his people. " Sandy Knight spent the summer in Guam while Bryan Hill, Jeff Gil- breath, Beverly Harlan, Kelly Garner, Donna Trousdale, Cindy Ed- mondson, Sandi Berryhill, Dana Hudson, Gina Brown, Pam Davis, and Michelle Lillard stayed in the states. " Outreach " week proved to be a success ac- cording to a BSG spokes- man as many made per- sonal commitments to Christ. BSUers were en- couraged to bring people in to hear testimonies of Christians while they en- joyed free meals supplied by area Baptist churches. The BSG added t o its list of programs " Discov- ery. " Each Thursday night, BSGers gather in the chapel for a special time of devotion, praise and singing. Mark Hester, BSG men ' s intramural director, sees his position as a way to reach out to other peo- ple. " We don ' t play only to win, " he said. " The vic- tory we are concerned with is winning others to Christ. We wish only for others to see Jesus in us. " " A Common Love " is the theme adopted by the Christian Student Fellow- ship to express the spirit of caring shared by Chris- tians. " We ' re trying to make ourselves known on campus, " said president Gary Pannell, " who we are, where we are, and what we are about. " The Christian Stu- dent Fellowship, spon- sored by the Churches of Christ, is growing more than ever. Along with the tradi- tional weekly devotional and luncheon at the Chris- tian Student Center and the devotional and singing at Mitchell-Hollingsworth Nursing Home, they have formed a chorus which sings to churches in the area. In November 40 Christian Student Center members spent the week- end in Hamilton at Camp Maywood for a retreat. Along with sessions and devotionals, Jim Martin (from International Bible College) spoke to the group. According to Pan- nell, this gave the stu- dents " a chance to get to know one another better and get closer to God. " The admission was one canned good. The oc- casion was the Thanks- giving mass and supper sponsored by the New- man Club. The food went to a collection center at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Florence and from there needy people in the area. In the fall, the New- man Club sponsored a re- treat called " Search " in Birmingham at St. Thom- as Catholic Li fe Center. " It was a spirit-filled weekend, " said vice-presi- dent Brenda Hollman, " and a chance to get away from the books. " Father Albert Fisher is the campus minister and Sandra Fries is the president. Weekly training meetings to help people understand basic funda- mentals of Christianity is an integral part of the Main Event, a campus outreach program. Its two main pur- poses are to " help stu- dents understand what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ and to help Christians on campus make progress with their relationships with Christ. " Seven hundred stu- dents from the Southeast gathered at Christmas in Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the GT85 conference. Fifteen of these were Main Event students from the university. Joel Chatham, Main Event campus director, said that since our univer- sity is largely a commuter school that Main Event students not only reach out to campus students, but to the community through their local churches as well. " The Wesley Foun- dation is a place where students are welcome to come between classes to relax, listen to music, or visit with friends, " said Buddy Freeman, campus minister. But, the Wesley Foundation is much more than that. It also offers weekly discipleship groups and prayer groups for campus and communi- ty The Wesley Founda- tion held a concert in the fall, featuring " Tom Page and Friends, " a Christian folk music band from Nashville, Tennessee. In February, students headed out to Camp Tay- lor in Lawrence County for a weekend retreat. Freeman said that their intramural teams have served as a way to bring people in and get them involved in the Wes- ley Foundation. Gib Finch, a junior from Tuscumbia, is Wes- ley Foundation ' s presi- dent. Jim Maples is vice- president, Pam Surles is secretary; and Greg McGuire is treasurer.

The Cooperative Campus Ministries spon- sors the weekly Horizons luncheon, which involves a home-cooked meal and a program. A Christian Work- shop was something new for the Cooperative Cam- pus Ministries. First Meth- odist Church, First Bap- tist Church and First Christian Church, all of Florence, held sessions on week-nights and the Wes- ley Foundation and Bap- tist Student Union held morning sessions. " This organization al- lows people to come to- gether and become stron- ger spiritually, " said Mark Hess, president of the Al- pha-Omega Ministries. The Alpha-Omega Ministries is an interde- nominational organiza- tion. The university ' s chapter was formed in 1982, but faced disband- ment because it was inac- tive and was put on proba- tion for one year. Several members at- tended the Maranatha World Leadership Confer- ence in Fort Worth, Texas during the Christmas se- mester break and made ef- forts to sponsor a Chris- tian concert on campus. The officers are Mark Hess, president; James Howard, vice-presi- dent; Gayla Mewton, sec- retary; Mark Weems, trea- surer; David Jacobs, pub- lic relations and Twyla Weeks, SGA representa- tive. Lorraine Glasscock is the adviser and Christ Chapel is the sponsor. The Alpha-Omega Ministries meet every Monday night in the SGA lodge for a time of devo- tional study and singing, accompanied by a band. The Alpha-Omega Ministries held a Rock and Roll seminar, led by Bob Duvall, pastor in Mara- natha Campus Ministries. Duvall presented facts and discussed the " meanings and the intent of rock and roll music in our society. " According to organi- zation president Hess, these weekly meetings of- fer a chance for people to take a deep breath and prepare for another week of reaching out and wit- nessing for Christ. Ads " A university such as UNA creates a greater economic impact on the surrounding area than a business of comparable size ' said Dr. William S. Stewart, head of the Depart- ment of Marketing and Management. According to a survey done for the Small Business Development Center, the total economic impact of the university on the Quad-Cities area is $79,025,500. The Student Goveriunent Association and The Flor-Ala sponsor a student discount pro- gram with many of the local businesses.
