(Photo by MoUie H. McCutchen) hanging with the times can be a difficult task Often, we get tied up in a routine and forget tha change is usually for the better. The past yeeir saw mciny changes ciround the university but the majority of the changes were good and for the most par accepted. One key element that helped guide the change was tradition. No matter how much something evolves, there will always be a touch of the past remaining. Although grades are now processed in elaborate computer programs, teachers still evciluate students on a scale from A-F. Curricula have been updated, but we are still required to master the fundamentals of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. Social events and activities, such aj pageants and concerts, are now coor drnated through hi-tech equipment anc specialized choreographers, but thf new Miss UNA is still crowned even year by her predecessor and old-time rock and roll is still alive. Air conditioning has replaced olc fans, and central heat has replaced ok furnaces, but maintenance crews still have to repair the broken machines (Continued on next page} JON WATKINS awaits the throw at first base as Jose Mar- tinez tries to pick off a Jacksonville State runner in the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament.

Campus fraternities and sororities put together musical skits that began a year-long competition between the Greeks. Sigma Chi fraternity placed first in the men ' s division with songs like " Rockin ' Robin " and " I Want Her " leading the way. Sigma Alpha Epsilon took second place with a skit based on the movie, " Fame.

" Songs from their childhoods were performed, includ- ing a touching tribute to Mehssa Bond, a sorority sister who passed away over the Christmas holidays. Second place went to Alpha Gamma Delta as they performed songs on a " Sentimental Journey. " " Jailhouse Rock, " and " Staying Alive " were some of the more memorable tunes done by the Alpha Gams. Phi Mu ' s " Big Chill " and Zeta Tau Alpha ' s " Winter Wonderland " closed out the program before Bob Glenn announced the winners. According to Glenn, Step Sing was a great success and a perfect way to get everyone back in the mood for school.

McCutchen; beauties By Tonya Maples Shocked was the only way Patrice Kitchens could sum up her feelings about winning the title of Miss UNA. " I can ' t believe it! I didn ' t think I had a chance, " said Kitchens. Sondra Patrice Kitchens, a twenty- year-old sophomore from Cherokee, was crowned Miss UNA 1989 by Karen Kimbrell, Miss UNA 1988. Kitchens, who plays seven different musical instruments, played the piano solo, " My Tribute, " in the talent competition. There were ten girls vying for the title of Miss UNA, however, the con- testants were not the only reason for the large audience at Norton Audito- rium. Many flocked to see the ever popular Stephen Nichols. Nichols, who emceed the pageant, portrays Steve " Patch " Johnson on the daytime soap opera " Days of Our Lives. " He entertained the crowd with many comical remarks as well as donning his famous patch when answering questions about the show. Other entertainment for the even- ing included the Jazz Band featuring Karen Kimbrell on the piano. Kim- brell played " Tara ' s Theme " and " Kitten on the Keys. " A change in the pageant that was noticed by many was the beginning of a new competition, the career wear category. Career wear replaced the swimsuit competition. Although many were disappointed with the elimination of the swimsuit compe- tition, according to Bob Glenn, direc- tor of Student Activities, it was in the best interest of the contestants. " Since the Miss UNA Pageant is no longer a preliminary for the Miss Alabama Pageant, we were no longer required to have the swimsuit competition. Although the swimsuit competition was more entertaining to the audience, the career wear competition better suited the contes- tant, " said Glenn. Another change in the pageant was the addition of the question and answer segment during the compe- tition. Contestants were asked to comment on questions concerning their future careers. " Since many of the duties of Miss UNA require speaking extemporane- ously, we thought this was a neces- sary addition to the pageant, " said Glenn. Kitchens ' many duties as Miss UNA included performing at honors night, meeting with the Board of Trustees, and making several public appearances at Regency Square Mall. For winning the Miss UNA Pageant Kitchens received a one year paid tuition scholarship, mem- bership to the Courthouse Racquet Club, membership to Ron ' s Gym, a $1500 wardrobe from Regency Square Mall, a free portrait by pho- tographer Jim Frawley, jewelry from Best Jewelers, a Florida vacation at Tourway Inn, and a free cut and style from The Mane Place. Participating as judges at the pageant were Patti Stanford, Barbara Hurl, and Bob Baron. Lorraine Glasscock and Quinton Ivy served as pageant auditors. First alternate was Laurie Beth Livingston. Livingston, a senior from Muscle Shoals, won the talent com- petition and the career wear category. Second alternate was Rachel Dawn Trousdale, a junior majoring in social work. Third alternate was Paige Marie Plyler, a freshman majoring in fine arts.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) a ack ito the ' 50s By Tressy Peters and Anissa Palmer " Grease " was the word when the Department of Speech, Communica- tion and Theatre, in conjunction with the Department of Music, presented the " new ' 50s rock ' n roll musical " as its spring production. The book, music, and lyrics were written by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs. Robert Allen Holder, director and choreographer for the play, said, " I thought it would be the event of the year in the Shoals. The cast didn ' t disappoint me. It was a difficult show, but we had lots of fun, and it was all worth it. " " Grease " had a live orchestra conducted by Chris Sotelo. Sotelo played keyboards in the orchestra and was choral director for the play. Other members of the orchestra included Neil Gray, Rob Landry, Mark Morgan, Ricky Burks and Lloyd Jones. Dr. Edd Jones served as music coordinator. The production staff that worked behind the scenes was composed of 38 people. This included everyone from artists to stage managers. Patrick Flanagan, who played the cool " greaser " Danny Zuko, said, " I am really looking forward to future productions. Working with Mr. Holder was great. I learned a lot from him and the rest of the cast. " Amber Hunter played Sandy Dumbrowski, Zuko ' s on-again, off- again girlfriend. " I had the best time. Robert Holder is the best director and the cast was simply wonderful, " said Hunter. Many people who came to see " Grease " at Norton Auditorium had first seen the movie version. Though there were some similarities between the movie and the play, there were also many differences. Some familiar scenes and songs from the movie were replaced in the play- As always, there were varying opinions from the audience. Vicky Phillips, an education major, preferred the movie. " It was great. But it was not as good as the movie. " Others, like Veronica Ayers, had a different viewpoint. " I liked the play better because it was live. " Movie or play, an old favorite came to life again and rekindled many fond memories of yesteryear. " Greaste " is the word. PAJAMA PARTIES are a staple of the Pink Indies ' social schedule.

Flowers begin to bloom, bees begin to buzz, and everything begins to stretch out and shake off the winter cold. As predictable as the seasons, college campus life is hit with an epi- demic of Spring Fever. More stu- dents cut class or forget to do homework and simply sit around enjoying the weather. Others, however, have something else in mind. The annual Spring Fling gave stu- dents the chance to get out and have some fun. Student participation was higher than normal and so was the level of enthusiasm. " Spring Fling was a lot of fun, and REPRESENTING THE STUDENT BODY as Spring Fling Queen, senior Kay Davis pauses to enjoy the spring weather. Davis is a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) we ' re really looking forward to next year, " said Jill Bachman, a member of the women ' s division champion, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Spring Fling gave campus organi- zations a chance to get together and compete in a friendly atmosphere. " We had a lot of team spirit, and we were really excited about the togetherness we had with the other organizations, " said Eddy Garner, member of the co-ed division cham- pion. Baptist Student Union. Although winning wasn ' t every- thing, some had more success at it than others. Sigma Alpha Epsilon joined the Alpha Gams and the BSU as overall winners. The men of SAE won nine individual contests, the Alpha Gams won five, and the BSU took home six. " We were really excited abou ' winning and having fun just being silly, " said Garner. Senior Kay Davis, sponsored b Alpha Delta Pi sorority, was electee Spring Fling Queen by a student money vote as a culmination of the week ' s festivities. When all of the excitement was over and the awards given out, it was time to settle back down and prepare for the end of the term. For some stu- dents, like Garner, the small break at Spring Fling gave them just wha1 was needed to make it through. " I was almost studied-out. Spring Fling gave me the energy to make i1 through finals. It was great! " ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL EVENTS in Spring Fling is the SidewcUk Art competi- tion.

(Photo by Marcus Leach) a o drive or not to drive By Regjna Cralt Traditionally, colleges have been viewed as tree-covered campuses with old clocks chiming the hour to all below. The classic student lived in dorms decorated with photos from home and school pennants from the bookstore. Lately, however, the image has been changing. In the midst of our hustle and bustle world, more and more students have chosen to forego tradition and commute. Most of the 85 percent of UNA students that commute have discovered that their decision is not without its fair share of problems. Many students feel they lose time by commuting. " By the time you get up early, drive to class, and then drive home in the afternoon, half of the day is gone, " said Kelley Counts. Another problem encountered by commuters is the lack of parking places. Partially due to the rise in enrollment, parking has become a major campus problem. To avoid the long-distance walk, many students create their own parking space and risk the chance of getting a parking ticket. A great number of commuters have emerged from class to find the dreaded pink slip sitting ominously on their windshield. Despite these problems, commut- ing can have its advantages. Living at home gives students a chance to adjust to college. They avoid the ini- tial culture shock associated with leaving home and get their feet firmly planted in the classroom. For the other 15 percent of the school ' s enrollment who live on campus, life is much like the tales from parents who tell of their college experiences. It can be lonely at first, but soon the loneliness goes away. New friends are made, and the freedom from home begins to make an impact on everyone ' s life. Dorm rooms can be decorated to each individual ' s taste, and soon the " closet " that had been a prison becomes a home. Dorm residents also have the advantage of being on campus for all of the school ' s special events. Pep rallies, concerts, and campus productions are easily accessible for all residents. Dorrn life is not without its problems though. Noise, lack of privacy, and community bathrooms all seem strange at first, but even this becomes normal in no time. n " S NOT EXACTLY Mom ' s home cooking— but at least the new vending machines in Rivers Hall keep students like Jerome Roper from going hungry.

CoMmitling mpetitive involvement 3y MIe Ward For the many students who I enjoyed athletic competition, but - could not participate in organized I athletics, the intramural program - offered a chance for relaxation and friendly competition. " The intramural program supple- - ments the academic mission of the school. My job is to pick activities - that can help improve the emotional " as well as the physical well being of the students, " said Greg Engle, _ director of the intramural program. Sporting events offered by the " intramural department ranged from Softball to bowling to water basket- _ ball. Self-organized teams competed - against each other in individual events as well as the year long points competition based on rankings from the events. Members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity won the points competition in the men ' s division in a close battle with the Pi Kappa Alpha team. SAE took first place in volleyball, flag football, softball, bowling and free throws to secure their title. The women of Alpha Gamma Deha edged out LaGrange Hall for the overall title by a total of 116 points. Changes in the intramural pro- gram that Engle hoped to start soon were the addition of more water p l t! ) ! sports and some type of aerobic competition. " We have always had water basketball, but we hope to increase the number of aquatic sports, " said Engle. Additionally, Engle hoped to get more involvement from the faculty. The continued growth of the intramural program would help both faculty members and students enjoy the competitive nature of athletics. " The intramural program is for everyone, " said Engle, " and the more participation we get, the better the program will be.

(Photo by Marcus Leach) mall enough to care By Tammy Cox Smaller classes, a cozy campus, and a friendly atmosphere are just a few characteristics that describe small college life. A smaller college offers many advantages to students who want to stay clear of the hustle and bustle of a larger university. One such advantage is the exis- tence of small classes. Many times at a larger school, students are lost and forgotten in a class having 100 or more people. In a small college, instructors have more time to spend with individuals, and therefore stu- dents are able to learn more without having to do all of the work by themselves. " The classes are smaller and instructors have more time to spend with their students, " said Michelle Hodge, a transfer student from Ole Miss. Another advantage of a small col- lege is the closer environment that makes meeting friends easier. The campus is not spread over blocks and blocks of a city, and people seem to have a more friendly attitude than those at larger universities. " You get to become better acquainted with people of the same interest. All the people you meet usually live in the same area around the college, and after you graduate from college you get to stay in touch with those friends better, " said Sandy Creason. Along with the advantages of a smaller campus come the necessary disadvantages. At a small college there are not always enough sections of classes to fit everyone ' s schedule. " You may want a certain instruc- tor, but the class is already full. Then you have to take a different teacher in order to get the hours you need, " said Rodney Nelson. Another problem with a small col- lege is parking. Since the campus is not large, parking places are usually scarce. It is not unusual to see a stu- dent walking several blocks to class because there were no other places available. Despite its disadvantages, life at a small college is not at all bad. Educational opportunities are for the most part similar to larger schools, and, of course, there is the close-knit feeling that you always know someone. " Everyone knows you at a smaller college, " said Steven Mann, " whether you want them to or not. " SINCE SMOKING, eating and drinking are prohibited in classrooms, makeshift " smoking areas " spring up in the mpst unlikely places.

(Photo by Jana Stout) 34 enovating a classic By Midielle WalliRgsford and Tim Beavers Students returning to campus in the fall were welcomed by many changes in the appearance of the university as the result of a $1.5 mil- lion renovation project. According to Clyde Beaver, direc- tor of the Physical Plant, four major projects were undertaken to give the campus an " extensive face lift. " The first of the projects to be com- pleted was the roofing of Powers Hall and the Communications Build- ing. Also completed during the summer was the installation of new seats in Flowers Hall. The third major project, and probably the lar- gest, was the renovation of the resi- dence halls. When the residents of Rice and Rivers returned to the dorms in the fall, the changes that had occurred over the summer were staggering. Some of the many changes in the residence halls were in the down- stairs lobbies. The reception area of Rivers Hall now contains a gameroom, while Rice Hall houses a private exercise and reception area. " I think it looks very nice, and it is a great improvement on residence life, " said Rice resident Jennifer Lambert. Other improvements were made on the mezzanines. The addition of new vending machines containing juices, sandwiches and other snacks provided new conveniences for the residents. " The best part of the new equip- ment is the change machine because you don ' t have to constantly ask for change, " said Latonia Coleman. The final renovations to the dorms were made in the upstairs lob- bies. These areas were given a " modern look, " complete with study areas and reading corners. " The renovation provides a more studious atmosphere and makes better use of wasted space, " said Cat Buchanan, a Rice Hall Resident Assistant. Some othe r changes that added to the overall look of the campus were the new lights at the baseball field and the stained glass window in Bibb Graves Hall. The window was painted by a UNA graduate student. The renovations gave the univer- sity a nice, new, spruced-up look, while still allowing it to retain its classic beauty. According to Beaver, the changes were the first in a series of projects slated for the future. " This was the first time since 1967 that there have been major improvements to the buildings, " said Beaver. " We are really proud of the way they turned out. " KELLER HALL gets a new roof as part of the campus facelift. Keller houses the School of Business, as well as the Offices of Pubhcations, Information Services, and Continuing Educa- tion.

Popular television shows from the ' 60s and ' 70s emerged from syndi- cation and entertained many stu- dents with their old-fashioned comedy. The Brady Bunch, Gilligan ' s Island, and Batman aired daily on many dorm-room televisions. Along with the Vietnam Era tele- vision reappearance came the outfits that dominated the college scene in the ' 60s. Black was back, long hair was in, and the peace-theme music made its comeback on the Top 40 charts. " Today ' s music is like the music of the ' 60s and ' 70s because singers are remaking the old hits, " said Tammy Cox, a ju nior from Corinth, Miss. Ahhough the ' 60s style has returned, the attitudes of the people are much different from the past. Vietnam was foremost on everyone ' s mind in the ' 60s, but today the trou- bles range from illegal drugs to the AIDS virus. " There is a definite trend back toward the ' 60s, but it is a copying of the ' 60s style and not the atti- tude, " said Mark Casteel, a junior from Florence. Besides the trend toward the ' 60s, other distinctively new trends came in with the ' 90s. Skin tight bicycle shorts, iguana skin tennis shoes, and acid-washed blue jeans made their mark on cloth- ing style. Personalized car tags, com- pact sports cars, and band re-union tours also burst onto the scene. On the darker side, relaxed morals brought about more unwed mothers, sexually transmitted dis- eases, and drug problems that claimed many young lives. " These problems have always existed, but now they happen so much that they seem new, " said Diana Lewis, a sophomore from Elkmont. Trends seem to run in circles. What is hot one year may be laughed at the next. But a good piece of advice to follow is never throw any- thing away. Just save all of your out- of-style junk for your children — someday they will think it is great. THE PEACE SIGN, once the exclusive prof erty of the flower children and the Summer of Ixjve, has been rediscovered more than 20 years later by children of the ' SOs. Peace signs began cropping up in jewelry, on clothes, and in graffiti. Other legacies revitalized from the Vietnam era include paisley prints, well-worn jeans and tie-dyed everything.

Television stations were quick to jump on the band wagon and began running the old ' 60s series starring Adam West and Burt Ward.

Rhodes Controversy, as a general rule, is not something which people seek after for sport, but it definitely serves to make life a little more interesting. Both locally and nationwide, con- troversies ran rampant during the school year. It was a year which saw the government ban the import of foreign automatic and semi- automatic weapons, as well as a year in which that same government said it was an individual ' s right to burn the United States flag as a means of political protest. " The veterans I have spoken with consider it a personal insult, " said Butch Garner, Lauderdale County Veterans Service Officer. " Most of the people who would do this have never been out of this country and don ' t realize the free- dom that they have here, " said Garner. Another view, expressed by Wayne Nix, showed the other side of this problem. " A constitutional amendment against this action [burning the flag] would be like holding a torch to the Bill of Rights. It would be very easy to tack on a clause prohibiting the criticism of the President. After all, he is a symbol of this country, " said Nix. Other controversies that drew worldwide attention included the stu- dent protests in China, the ousting of Pete Rose from baseball, and the ever-present abortion question. During the heart of the Rose investigation, attention shifted to the local scene where two high school coaches were arrested on suspicion of betting on and fixing area football games. " If the allegations of fixing the outcomes of football games are tru( those involved should be prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, " sai Mollie H. McCutchen. " I can ' t believe that money i worth ruining the future of thes high school athletes. " Controversy surrounds us dail; The way we live, the way we dres: and the way we express ourselve; Without it the world would be dul and reporters would probably starv to death. But there comes a tim when enough is enough. Accordin to McCutchen, that time is now.- " We live in one of the mo; prosperous eras in history, yet coi troversies rule our lives. That is hard thing to accept when we ar living in one of the strongest nation in the world. " 28 ' •« ■7 .

It could bring happiness or it could bring disaster. We never know, but we can be sure of one thing — it is inevitable. The school year was simply that — a year of change. Students and members of the faculty, staff and administration who strolled the campus during the year witnessed the retirement of univer- sity president Dr. Robert M. Guillot, the retirement of executive vice president Dr. Roy S. Stevens, the ter- mination of Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Daniel R. Leasure, the planning of a multi-level parking deck to alleviate the problem of parking on campus, the appointment of an interim president and several campus protests. In November, university president Dr. Robert M. Guillot, who had served as president for 17 years, announced his resignation at a spe- cial meeting of the Board of Trustees. The resignation was effec- [ five December 31, 1989. Earlier in the year, UNA executive vice president Dr. Roy S. Stevens, who had been with the university for 40 years, announced his retirement, effective June 1, 1990. LOCAL PRO-LIFE ACTIVISTS protest in front of the University Center prior to Sarah Weddington ' s appearance on campus. (Photo by Mark Casteel) " There comes a time when you should do that [retire], " Stevens said. " I feel my time has come. " The November 10 Board meeting also gave way for the early stages of plans for a multi-level parking deck to be built on campus, and possibly spanning Pine Street, which accord- ing to Dr. Stevens, would not only help the parking problem on campus, but would also solve the problem of students crossing Pine Street. According to newspaper accounts, two students were struck by cars during the fall semester while crossing the busy street. A special meeting of the Board of Trustees approved the resignation of Dr. Guillot and announced the appointment of Robert L. Potts as interim president. The board also announced that a search committee would be formed to search for a per- manent president. " My decision to serve as interim president was prompted by my com- mitment to academic excellence and my desire to serve an educational institution whose growth and progress is so vital to Northwest Alabama, the entire state, as well as the Tri-State area, " Potts said. Potts said that he was depending on faculty and student input to help him do the best job possible as interim president. The dismissal of Dr. Leasure in October led to the filing of a lawsuit by the university when Dr. Guillot said that he had given Leasure the reasons for his termination and had offered him a chance to resign. Leas- ure said that he didn ' t know the rea- sons for his dismissal, according to newspaper accounts. A student group " Student for al Better UNA " formed to protest Leas- ure ' s termination. Several demon- strations were also held to protest the action. Protesters also formed lines in front of the University Center when Sarah Weddington, the attorney in the famed Roe vs. Wade abortion case came to campus as a speaker. Shoals Area Citizens for Life pro- tested Weddington ' s being invited as a speaker. It has been said that change helps ward off boredom, and perhaps it is true. Whatever you may wish to say about this year, it was anything but boring.

Wonl Hang up the oxfords for T-shirt attire. Step into a pair of thongs and pack the tennis shoes away for cooler weather. Don ' t even think about putting on jeans. You have to be comfortable to spend a semester at summer school. Summer school entails a number of different advantages for a student. First, the noise and traffic that exist during regular classes is lessened. Second, the professors seem to be more laid back and easy-going during the summer. And, of course, who can forget the wonderful wardrobes that people discover during the summer? Another advantage of summer school is the opportunity for students to take classes that they don ' t have room for at other times. " It is a quick and easy way to get through the more mundane classes. It ' s also a way to get out of school faster, " said Brian McWhorter. Other students find that summer school is not as easy as they hoped. The time span may be shorter, but attendance is more heavily stressed, and more outside class preparation is required. And then, of course, the idea of going to school year-round just doesn ' t sit well with some. " I just get burned out with to much school, " said Chris Miller. With enrollment figures up ov6 200 people from previous summer; it is evident that summer school i becoming more important t students. Summer school, for some, is a ke element in the college experience For others, it is just a waste of nic weather. Regardless of the way the feel, however, many students fin themselves enrolled and going t class in the summer at one time c another. 32 FINDING TIME to relax and practice his guitar licks, Mike Rhodes picks an unusual spot to wait behween classes during summer school.

There ' s an added advantage in the summer in that the decreased number of students on campus makes it easier to find a phone that ' s not cons- tantly in use. Julie Bums takes advantage of a few spare minutes to use the pay telephone near the Memorial Amphitheatre. (Photo by Charles Butler) Break from the routine Summer vacation brings to mind a time of more sleep, less pressure, and wonderful parties. While most student enjoy their time off from school playing around, others continue to work just as hard through the summer months as they did while in school. Many students use their summer to relax and travel. Robyn Carlisle, a freshman major- ing in social work, visited Hawaii with her parents. " Waikiki Beach was not as wonderful as I thought it would be, but I can ' t wait to go again, " said Carlisle. Other vacationers spent time with relatives and friends. Sopho- more Carol Abernathy took a mid- night canoe ride down the Tennessee River that she will never forget. " It was scary, but it was also lots of fun, and I met some new friends, " said Abernathy. Summertime isn ' t all fun for some students. Many work summer jobs while a few still manage to make it to class every- day in summer school. Communication art major LuEllen Newman gave up part of her summer to work as a coun- selor at Girl Scout Camp. Others, like senior Tonya Maples, use the summer to intern on campus. Combining work with school gives many students the advan- tage they need after graduation. Summer vacation can be spent in a number of different ways. Regardless of how it is enjoyed, however, summer offers a much needed break from the normal routine of college life.

(Photo by Wade Myhan) O r ny Concfris 35 lust the beginning By Anissa PatiDer Compare the high school experience with the college experience — we all know that there is a difference. To many high school graduates, the thought of college sends nervous chills down their spines. " I ' ll be a freshman all over again, " each one of them thinks. " I won ' t know where to go or what to do! " And consider transfers who come here from another college. They might also have their qualms about finding their way around a different campus. It was a little easier, however, for those beginning freshmen and trans- fers who attended SOAR, the Summer Orientation and Advanced Registration program. The first event of each SOAR ses- sion was the " ice breakers. " Activi- ties director Bob Glenn said, " The whole idea behind the ice breakers is to get them to let their guards down and meet people. Everyone is nervous when they first get here and suffering from the ' too cool ' syndrome. " After everyone was relaxed and had made a few new friends, they played the freshman simulation game. The game simulated the experiences and activities the stu- dents encounter during their first two semesters. The game included such activities as finding research books in the " library " and trying to get things done while " homecoming activities " were happening. The SOARees had a chance to do something different from those who had been through previous SOAR programs. They wrote down what goals they would hke to achieve THE 1989 SOAR COUNSELORS-Front Row: Danny Roberts, Ginger Blankenship, Karen Kinibrell (head counselor), Malaea Nelms. Back Row: Amy Brown, Missy Ricketts, Thomas Wallace, Regina Simpson, Lorri Glover. The counselors were selected for their individual abilities and by how well they work as a group. (Photo by Mark Casteel) during their first year in college. Glenn said that doing so would help the students choose what courses they wanted to take. After the SOARees had their goals in mind, they met with academic advisers to discuss what classes to take. The advisers not only provided information that would help the SOARees through their first year on campus, but they also discussed what the freshmen and transfers should expect later. Next, the SOAR counselors made a tentative schedule of classes for each SOARee. Since the purpose of SOAR was to cover all aspects of university life, the SOARees divided up into groups and listened to their counselors cover the rules and regulations of the dormitories. Later, the SOARees ate dinner in Towers Cafeteria then took a stroll to the Performance Center to watch the SOAR show. The show began with college graduation and two graduates think- ing back on their time in college, beginning with the SOAR experience. The typical SOAR ses- sion was assimilated in the show, including the SOAR dance. The SOARees were able to experience the SOAR dance them- selves after the show. Just as the ice breakers at the beginning of the ses- sion were to help the SOARees relax, the purpose of the dance was also to help them relax. " This dance was not just your standard dance, " said Glenn. " We did things that got everyone involved. Everyone had a great time. " Following the dance, the SOARees went to their dorm rooms to get a good night ' s sleep before th next day ' s activities. The second da began with breakfast then Glenn ' own version of " The David Lettei man Show. " The show was actually a studer life assembly, and Glenn said it wa useful in answering questions th SOARees might have had and i providing a source of humor. Finally, each SOAree had chance to talk one-on-one with hi counselor. Afterward was a campu tour of sorts, but luckily, th SOARees did not have to put o hiking boots for a trip acros campus. They were able to bypas such an experience because c another change: " tour on video. The SOARees were still able t become familiar with campus whil relaxing and watching a tape. The final meal of the SOAR se; sion (lunch) was served befor registration began. During registre tion, the SOARees had the advar tage of having first-grab at som classes that they might not have ha if they had not gone through SOAF What about the people wh helped the SOARees through thei two-day stay on campus? The nin SOAR counselors were especiall chosen so that they could help th freshmen and transfers as much a possible. They also had to take EI 295 (Human Relations Training) s that they could learn about counse ing skills, group dynamics, etc. Th class better prepared them for thei jobs as SOAR counselors. The SOAR program was mor than helpful; it was fun. And if th SOARees though SOAR was a fui experience, they will find that it wa just the beginning. 36 SOAR COUNSELOR Regina Simpson watches as Bob Glenn shows the SOARees the t-shirt each one of them will receive.

Fortunately, however, the SOAR Cabaret Show proved to be a refreshing element in the midst of chaos. The production was written and directed by Amy Gerding, a senior majoring in radio televi- sion film. Not only did the show provide entertainment for the audience, but it also informed the students about campus life and problems they might face in college. According to Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities, the purpose of the entire SOAR pro- gram was to give the students a consistent message that they can have fun at college, as well as get- ting an education. ' The show represented college life so well. It took work and some hardships, but it all came together. I ' d say it was worth it all to see the audience leave enter- tained and educated about UNA, " said Jay Webb, a sophomore who demonstrated his multiple talents as a Cabaret member. Although the SOAR Cabaret provided wonderful entertain- ment for the audience, some, like Amy Gerding, also got much more out of it. She said, " Directing the SOAR show has been a wonderful and valuable experience for me. The cast was the best. They worked very hard on the show from beginning to end.

The pur- pose of college, other than education, is to have a good time and mingle with other people. For many, that purpose is fulfilled after dark. The city of Florence may not be large, but the availability of fun is not lacking. With the use of a little imagi- nation it is amazing what one can find to do. " I suppose night life is what you make of it. A lot of people do the same things all the time. I prefer to do something totally unique, " said James L. Rhodes. Some students like to dance, while others prefer to relax to the sound of local bands. Clubs that have a mixture of both are easily found. For those who would rather challenge their friends in a game of pool, several billiard halls that offer food, drink, and music are not too far away. Cruisin ' is still alive and well. The hobby of driving around searching for members of the opposite sex will never end as long as cars and radios exist. Cruisin ' can also be the best time to check out where the cute girl or guy lives that sits next to you in class even if you don ' t have the nerve to ask him or her out. 1 -- , . % ' if 1 £ a 1 ilM — 2 . . a • ' - 1 :m - % .

And although the rain changed many activities scheduled during the soggy weekend, the weather didn ' t dampen the spirits of the fans gathered to watch the game. Of course the fans were dressed a bit differently than might be expected. Homecoming is usually an occasion for one ' s " Sunday best, " but most who attended the game opted for jeans and waterproof gear. Lion fans cheered for the purple and gold, but the weather seemed to be an omen of disappointment as the home team fell to the visitors, 19-17. But some Homecoming traditions were carried on before the weather spoiled everyone ' s plans. Wednesday night ' s bonfire drew a huge crowd of students to watch effigies of the Central Florida Knights being burned. Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity ' s entry took first place in the effigy-burning contest, and Sigma Chi won second place. All week long Greeks, residence halls and other organizations worked on their floats and campus decorations. But for the first time in 40 years, rain cancelled the tradi- tional Homecoming parade and organizations such as first place win- ners Alpha Delta Pi and Sigma Chi had to leave their floats in storage. One Homecoming tradition that was unspoiled by the rain was the election and coronation of the Homecoming Queen. Elected by i-j mL 1 1 — y :i - • i zzzj ' i =Y— -i -m m RAIN MEANS casual wear.

Held in the University Center at noon on Saturday, September 30, the Alumni Brunch welcomed many graduates and friends of the university. Alumnus and U.S. Representa- tive Ronnie Flippo was guest speaker at the brunch. Flippo, a popular congressman from north Alabama, announced his can- didacy for governor during the brunch. Three university graduates were honored as Alumni of the Year. Chosen were Robert Spain, a bishop of the Louisville, Ky., area of the United Methodist Church; Bobby Irons, a controller with the Reynolds Metals Alloys plant at Listerhill; and Dr. Marlon Priest, the assistant vice president for health affairs and director of emergency services at the Univer- sity of Alabama at Birmingham. Danny Killen, president of the Alumni Association, said the three men were picked for the professional, business and educa- tional categories, respectively. David Brown, director of Alumni and Governmental Affairs, said of the honorees, " The selection committee had a hard job because they had a lot of outstanding alumni nominees to consider. Their selections are cer- tainly a credit to UNA. " Several other individuals were honored at the brunch, including Executive Vice President Roy S. Stevens. Dr. Stevens was recog- nized for 40 years of service to the university and community. Killen presented Dr. Stevens with a plaque, and then gave both Dr. and Mrs. Stevens honorary life- time memberships in the Alumni Association. Dr. Robert M.

Dressed in a red suit and wear- ing a warm smile, Yazoo City, Mis- sissippi ' s own Jerry Glower appeared from his dressing room, ready to pose for pictures, answer questions, and even sign a few autographs. Though many people might say that Glower was born to do comedy, he " did not think [he] would ever make a career out of it. Glower said he " backed into show business. " Once a fertilizer salesman ( " and good at it " ). Glower had daily encounters with farmers. He col- lected a variety of humorous sto- ries, and people told him that he should try stand-up comedy. One person made a tape of Glower telling his jokes (with Glower ' s permission) and when the smoke cleared. Glower had a five-year contract with MGA records. Glower takes his career seri- ously, but he also takes his religion seriously. " The greatest tempta- tion of any Ghristian is prosperity, " he said, but he added that he does not let his success go to his head. Not only is Glower ' s religion important to him, but his marriage of 40 years is also. Ahhough Glower enjoys his comedy career, he said he would not let his work come between him and his wife. After The Fosters warmed up the audience with their music. Glower greeted the crowd in the auditorium with a smile and his sense of humor. Gollege campuses are not usual stops for Glower. " Most of my shows are rodeos and fairs, but 1 look forward to appearing on a college campus, " he said. Every comedian has advice for other aspiring comedians. Glower gave his advice in three words: " Keep it clean. " " Anyone can be successful in comedy without using profanity or being vulgar, " he said. Glower kept his audience laugh- ing throughout the show and he seemed to feel as comfortable here as he would in his own hometown. Glower summed it up when he said, " I ' m one of you!

According to Robert Allen Holder, assistant professor of communica- tion and theatre and the director of the production, this marked the first time a play was performed in the Center. In this production, cast members had a chance to show their range as each person played multiple roles in this enthralling drama. Students por- trayed dead village members who tell their stories of murder, jealousy and deceit. According to Holder, the Perfor- mance Center was so full on open- ing night that people had to be turned away. Viewers who were lucky enough to see the play on its opening night were treated to a brief talk by Dr. William Foster, head of the Department of English, about the background of the play. Holder said he was extremely pleased not only with the audience ' s response to the production, but with the actors and actresses as well. He felt the play was successful and thanked the actors for their work. To Holder, the play will be a memorable one because of the fact that " the students were seeing this for the first time and that they responded well to the ideas that were expressed 70 years ago with a feeling that things haven ' t changed much in the way people feel and act. The production recaptured the past, but made it seem today. " r BEHIND THE SCENES, Alex Newborn helps Jason Brown put the finishing touches on his makeup.

The Sixth Annual Writers onference was a little differ- it, however, and may have ;en the most successful one to ite. The main difference in the )ring conference was the ;pansion of the event into a eek-long series of meetings. r. Jack Kingsbury said the lange was made for several fferent reasons. " We started small deliber- ately because we didn ' t know how to do conferences, " he said. The addition of several events, such as the autograph sessions and the panel discus- sion, made it necessary to extend the conference a few days. The purpose of the Writers Conference changed slightly also. Instead of just bringing authors to campus for lectures, aspiring writers were encouraged to meet with and make contacts with the popular authors in order to find out how to become a successful writer. Sometimes what writers do is misunderstood. " Writing is a business. Writers don ' t just write books; they also do many other things, " said Kingsbury. The conference began with the usual conference preview at the Kennedy-Douglass Center, then continued with autograph parties at various locations around Florence. A sesion on how to be pub- lished followed the panel dis- cussion. James Whitehead ' s poetry workshop and Eileen Fallon ' s individual conferences concluded the special events portion of the conference. The remainder of the conference was devoted to readings and discussions with many of the authors present. The conference was a great success, and according to Dr. Ron Smith, the conference lived up to its potential and gave the community the opportunity to meet popular writers. " The purpose of our confer- ence is to make people aware of what is going on in writing, " said Smith. " It was probably the stron- gest conference we ' ve had yet.

Miss UNA Patrice Kitchens entertained the crowd with a piano solo before Honors Night committee members Leigh Ann Griswold, Steve Callahan, Lorri Glover and Jacqueline Wilson presented Outstanding Member Awards for 55 of the campus organizations. The University Awards, beginning with the Henry J. Wil- hngham Award, followed the Outstanding Member Awards. Senior Tammy Vernon received the Willingham Award based on scholarship, personality and leadership demonstrated in teacher education. Ken Collins, Jennifer Vick- roy, Karen Kimbrell and Stephanie Bearden were then recognized by Joe Wallace, director of University Events, as outstanding members of the Golden Girls and Ambassadors. Dr. Jerry Miley presented the Phi Kappa Phi awards to seniors Belinda Haddock and Kimberly Miller, who tied for having the highest overall grade point average. The Undergraduate Service Awards were presented next to Eve Elkins, Karen Kimbrell, Missy Ricketts and Donna McLemore. Dr. Daniel Leasure presented these awards as well as naming Polly Gartman, Anne Clem, Jeffrey David Cox and Ladd VanDevender to the Hall of Fame. VanDevender and Gartman were also recognized as Univer- sity Man and Woman of the year. The banquet closed with presentation of the Outstanding Service Award to Dr. William Foster, head of the English department. Dr. Foster was recognized by Dr. Leasure as " a craftsman, a molder of minds and materials. " " His approach may not be traditional or expected, but the result is worthy. He can con- verse easily on subjects rang- ing from the mechanics of the English language to the mechanics of an automobile engine.

The Collier Library Archives has a wonderful collection of photographs, maps, and other items that shape the history of the university, Florence, and Alabama. The archives room is equipped with a special air con- ditioning system that keeps the room at a cool, controlled tem- perature at all times. A system of double doors serves to make those entering the archives as dust-free as possible. The double doors create a sort of air vacuum that also aids in pro- tecting the materials. According to Linda Dot- zheimer, head of the archives, other precautions are also taken to preserve the materials. " The room is environmen- tally controlled to keep the humidity higher than usual. Some of the materials are stored on metal shelves because wood has too much acid that would eat the papers up. Some items are stored in fire-proof boxes as well, " said Dotzheimer. The materials in the archives came from several different sources, including Congress- man Ronnie Flippo, the Ten- nessee Valley Historical Society, the defunct Wesleyan Museum, and various individuals from the community. " Most of the material is donated by individuals. A lot of material came from the old Wesleyan Museum. When it was closed we couldn ' t find all of the people who owned the materials so we moved them into the archives, " said Dot- zheimer. The oldest verifiable items in the archives date back to the Civil War. Dotzheimer, who has been in charge of the archives since 1985, said that it has a valuable collection of letters from the Civil War. " One of the items in the Wesleyan Collection is a ph tocopied set of letters from tl Civil War. What adds to t! value of them is that it is bo sides of a husband wife c( respondence. Paper was short supply so she would wr to him, and he would write h back on the other side, " sa Dotzheimer. Dotzheimer said that t! archives gets a good mixtu re visitors. " We have students, facul community people, and peof from all over. We even h. some people from Japan come here to research Dr. E. Norton. Every student shoii visit the archives at least o: time. " By Janet Wallace STUDENTS FIND the UNACAT system more convenient than the old card cata- log. Becky Hays, a junior communica- tions major from Scottsboro, uses one of the terminals on the ground floor. Each floor has at least one UNACAT ter- minal, eliminating the need to return to the ground floor each time new material is needed. (Photo by Charles Butler) New catalog system more convenient Collier Library is now user-friendly. UNACAT, the new catalog system, was put into opera- tion in January. Circulation and catalog control of the library ' s materials is now controlled by a single com- puter database. Computers are located on every floor of Collier Library. If a call number is forgotten or more call numbers are needed, the information can be obtained without return- ing to the ground floor. Like the manual card catalog system, the com- puter database provides access to all library materials by author, title, and subject. Students who are not familiar with computers have no need to worry about operating the new system. Instructions for searching by author, title, and subject are displayed on the screen. The computer system actually leads a user through the steps to finding materials. And, as usual, the library staff is always available to help. By Janet Wallace KEEPING COMPLETE and accurate records of the historical data on file in the archives is a huge responsibility. Library student workers such as Greg Pigg, a freshman from Cypress Inn, Tenn., have duty in the archives to help keep the records in order and to assist library patrons in finding material. Because some of the material in the archives is irreplaceable, much care must be taken in the handling of the various documents. (Photo by Kim Berry) MAPS, PHOTOGRAPHS, LETTERS comprise some of the precious items in the archives collections.

As soon as it leaves the professor ' s mouth, one can literally see panic invade the classroom as tension fills the air. " Teachers must love to see us suffer when they announce a test, " said Jessica Thompson. Why the sudden horror one might ask? Because this one little word immediately implies several things. First, you must lock yourself in your bedroom all night long to study. While doing this, you must consume enormous amounts of coffee. Then, you finally settle down enough to catch a few winks of sleep, only to be awakened a short time later by the buzzing of your alarm clock. Everyone has experienced the pre-test jitters that seem to turn normal, happy college stu- dents into nervous wrecks. " There is just too much stress. We always have too many tests at the same time, " said Michelle Wallingsford. Perhaps the hardest part of taking exams is the knowledge that eventually the professor will return them. Students always visualize a pre-mature death on the day tests are given back. " The longest walk you will ever make is from your desk to the front of the room where teachers stand with a smile their face, " said Thompso Inevitably, exams come go, and college students continue to be plagued by t! throughout their coll careers. But like childh nightmares, they eventu fade away into memories. All one can do is make best of it — but a little stud; wouldn ' t hurt either.

Trying to find a job as graduation approaches is often difficult when students are con- centrating on grades for their last classes and are not looking ahead past college. " You want to get out so bad and then suddenly it ' s May, and you have no idea what you want to do, " said Lisa Rose, a 1989 graduate who now works in Dallas, Texas. Amid the chaos of seniors scrambling for jobs, the Place- ment Office stands as a refuge for those who use it. The Placement Office offers a wide variety of services that assist graduating seniors in finding a job or in meiking plans for further study in graduate or professional school. " There is something to help everyone. We have videos on choosing careers, interviewing and company information, as well as computer software for preparing resumes, " said Beverly Cheney, director of the Placement Service. Other services offered by the Placement Office include the coordination of the cooperative education program and the location of part-time and summer jobs for students. " The service is not just limited to seniors. We have lots of programs to help the under- graduates also, " said Chenej Preparation, according ti Cheney, is the most importar part of a senior ' s job searcl process.

Though not all student have to hold down a job while going to school, there are many who do, and for some, the task is not a simple one. There are several reasons why students choose to work. " Working gives me an opportu- nity to get experience in the field of work I ' m majoring in, " said Sandy Creason. Creason works in the economics finance department at the university during the week and on weekends she works at Pan- cho ' s in Corinth, Miss. " Working, " said Creason, " enables me to meet people with many different back- grounds. " Creason also said that work- ing teaches her to be more responsible. " Working helps me appreciate school because if I were not working I would not be able to attend college. " Rodney Nelson, a night audi- tor at Holiday Inn in Corinth, said that working while going to school is a vduable experience. " Earning your college degree is the first step toward a success- ful career, " he said, " yet rele- vant work experience is certainly no less important to a potential employer. " Since attending college costs a great deal, many students work to have extra spending money. Working students also make it easier for their parents financially. Beth Greene works in Ripley, Miss., on weekends at the People ' s Bank. She said, " Working on weekends gives me the opportunity to have more money to spend without having to ask my parents. " Sharon Kelley, who works at Wendy ' s in Florence, agreed with Greene. She said, " It is easier on the parents finan- cially and you do have a little extra money. " Kelley works so that she will be able to live in an apartment near campus instead of commuting from Huntsville. Although working gives a student extra money, it does make it difficult to find time to study. Study time is essential in order to maintain a good grade point average; however, when a student works he is some- times too exhausted to studj Nelson said that " a studei could work too many hours ar allow his grades to suffer, " an added that it is important fc the student to allow for time 1 study. He suggested that breal time during working houi could be used to study. Employers seek out goo employees with potentia experience, and a degree. The usually look for a person wit discipline and dedication, an they also look for a person wh can handle the pressure ( everyday life. Although it is hard to wor and attend school at the sam time, a student who works wi have a sense of pride in himse because he is able to cope wit both college and work.

(Photo by Marcus Leach) Preparing for a safe future Think about the last concert you attended on campus. What about the last ball game? Did you notice anything different? If you looked closely, you may have seen a security guard whom you had not seen before — a student security guard. Students are now able to work as security guards since a security guard program was added to the list of options for work study. The security guard program is for students who are enrolled in the law enforcement pro- gram. It gives them an opportunity to fulfill advance requirements for the police academy. As security guards, the students are under the instruction of full-time guards, and they patrol at ballgames, concerts and other campus activities. The program has its benefits for the stu dents who are enrolled; it provides on-the-jol: training and allows the students to experience many stiuations that law enforce ment officials face. What does it take for a students to qualify for the program? One must have a 1.5 grade point average and must be enrolled in th€ campus law enforcement program. In addition, the student must qualify tc receive work study and must meet certair physical requirements. Next time you are at a campus event, an eye out for your fellow students in s rity. They may be the law enforcement officers of the future.

For so me students, absorb- 5 information is a time- nsuming process. Others, wever, learn the material sily. Everyone is unique, so one way to study is good for ery person. Some people like studying in peace and quiet. The library offers students a quiet atmosphere while putting everything needed to study at their fingertips. " You always have easy access to books and other study materials. And you can always find someone to help you in the library, " said Blue Russell, a senior majoring in public relations. Another quiet place that many students visit is the picnic area at McFarland Park. Warm weather draws students out- doors, away from the cooped- up feeling of dorm rooms and apartments. Other favorite study spots include the University Center, the amphitheatre, and empty classrooms. " The University Center is so quiet and relaxing in the late cifternoon. I like sitting by the windows and watching people go by while I study, " said Fran Collier, a senior elementary education major. Everyone has their own spe- cial place to study. Whether it be a quiet corner or a crowded room, different methods work for different people. " I guess you just have to find a place that is comfortable and not distracting, " said Tammie Burlingame, a senior marketing major, " But the key thing is, it has to be right for you.

You have a class in 15 minutes, you got your homework, and ire is no place to park. Later the day you sit in the Univer- y Center staring at the red that adorns your biology t. Then you think, things re not that bad last year. Even with enrollment on the e, the fact remains that many oming freshmen will never iduate from this university, iny will transfer to other lools, but some will leave school completely and try to make it without a college degree. " A drop-out is someone who does not return to a particular school but who may or may not continue his education at another school, " said Dr. Fred- die Wood, director of Institu- tional Research. In the fall of 1982, 931 first- time freshmen enrolled at UNA. These freshmen were tracked for ten semesters. Many dropped out. " Many went to a junior or senior college near home after leaving UNA. How many even- tually finished is hard to say because we are unable to track students after they leave us, " said Dr. Wood. The main reason given for the number of drop-outs, according to Dr. Wood, is that most students come to college ill-prepared. " Students should take at least three years of math, three years of science, and have a good background in the social sciences and English, before leaving high school. Many do not, " said Wood. Dr. Wood also pointed out that some well-prepared stu- dents do not succeed because they don ' t know what they want to do. " If you don ' t have a goal in mind when you come to col- lege, you are going to have problems, " said Wood. " Those who know where they are going will not have to deal with the problems caused by uncer- tainty. They will make it through. " By Anissa Palmer 2W. OhI l?al, 67 What s in a name? The university community honored the executive vice president by renaming EJS Dr. Roy S. Stevens, executive vice president, was honored for his years of service to the univer- sity by the renaming of the Edu- cation Nursing Building to Roy S. Stevens Hall. The Board of Trustees named the building for the executive vice president who has dedicated 39 years of his life to the university. Dr. Stevens will retire (after 40 years service) on June 1, 1990. " It ' s an honor for me and my family to know our name will be a part of the university for years to come, " said Stevens. The dedication ceremony was attended by 200 educators and community leaders from across Alabama. University President Dr. Robert M. Guillot called Dr. Stevens a man " with staying power, with experience and with a long and distin- guished record of being a good example to colleagues, contem- poraries and even to com- petition. " Stevens, an Olive Hill, Ky., native, has risen from the rank of assistant professor of busi- ness to his present position, gaining in the process the respect of his peers in higher education. In 1988, the Association of Alabama Administrators named him the " Distinguished Leader of the Year for Four- Year Alabama Colleges. " His alma mater, Eastern Kentucky University, presented him with the " Centennial Award for Excellence in Teach- ing " in 1974. In 1964, UNA students voted him the " faculty member of the year. " He was the first chairman of the Council of Business Officers of the Alabama Com- mission on Higher Education. A member of Phi Kappa Phi, he is a member of both the National and Southern Associ- ations of College and Uruversity Business Officers. Dr. Stevens has distin- guished himself not only in education circles, but also in public service by serving in many governmental, civic and church posts, including the Alabama Air Pollution Control Commission, Shoals Industrial Development Authority, Flor- ence Area Chamber of Com- merce, Chamber of Comme of the Shoals, and the Flore; Planning Commission. A World War II veteran, Stevens received B.S. and N degrees from Eastern Kentu and an LL.D. from Livingst Stevens Hall is a five-st structure completed in 197{ houses the Schools of Edu tion and Nursing, the Dep ments of Social Work Sociology, the Learn Resources Center, Media £ vices and the Alabama Edu tional Computing Research ; Development Network.

" Programs in the School of Arts and Sciences are continu- ally being revised and upgraded to provide for stu- dents top academic programs. The Department of Art has now been accredited for the next five years by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, " said Dean of Arts and Sciences Jack Moore. Three other schools in the School of Arts and Sciences that are accredited or approved nationally are the music depart- ment, the social work depart- ment, and the chemistry department. " Other departments will hopefully be accredited soon, " said Moore. " The departments of com- munications and theatre, mathematics, and computer science are beginning prelimi- nary self-studies in preparation for applying for accreditation of programs in these departments. " UNA has several research laboratories in which faculty and students can gain valuable experience. " Faculty in the School of Arts and Sciences are active in funded research as part of t university. In addition, t School of Arts and Scienc has four research centers conducting research whi involves faculty and student: said Moore. The accreditation of t departments in the School Arts and Sciences and t development of the resear laboratories are proving tl the university is a good place receive an education.

Several instructors on mpus allow students to get olved in real-life situations to spare them for life after liege. " We simulate real-life situa- ns and then decide how we uld have done a better job, " id Bud Smith, assistant ifessor of marketing and the icher of one of the more usual classes at the iversity. Smith ' s Management 331 class, better known as " Happi- ness 331 " to former par- ticipants, deals with issues in human relations that affect managerial performance in the workplace. By allowing his students to perform group activities, Smith can more effectively show them how to deal with problems in leadership. Two of Smith ' s more interesting experiments include an egg drop contest and a skit production. In the egg drop, students must construct an object that will allow an ordinary egg to fall from the ceiling without break- ing. The catch is to build the object with six sheets of paper and a two foot piece of tape. Many eggs have been scram- bled on Bud Smith ' s floor. The skit performance requires students to write and perform a three to six minute comedy skit. The students are then judged on creativity, origi- nality, and presentation. This, according to Smith, makes stu- dents work together and learn to relate better with others. Another unusual class in the School of Business is Dr. Rick Lester ' s Labor Problems and Legislation (MG 371). In this class students learn about the laws that shape union- management relations, and then they put their knowledge to work in a mock bargaining session. " It is amazing what you have to go through to bargain a con- tract, " said student David Locker. Many other classes on campus allow students to face problems of the future before actually dealing with them. Home economics students, RTF majors, and chemistry scholars all practice in their chosen fields before taking their skills into the world. By offering students the chance to prepare for life while still in college, school becomes much more than simply books and tests. " I think it is my job to teach the students what they will be up against after college, " said Smith. " Xhere is only so much you can learn from a textbook. The rest has to come from experience.

(Photo 1 Charles Butler) From classroom to vork place Internships provide students with fre-graduation exfcrience Each year, many students have the opportunity to enhance their aca- demic curriculum through the utihzation of the university ' s internship program. Undergraduate students who undergo training in their major field of study are called interns. Internship positions are arranged through the depart- ment in which the student will work. These interns are required to work a specified number of hours, but they are usually not paid if they receive academic credit. Though some students choose internship positions on campus, man y students work at various jobs throughout the area. " A number of our interns turn those internships into full- time jobs, " said Dr. Eugene Balof, head of the Department of Communication and Theatre. Gayla Kilburn, a senior social work major, conducted her internship at the Lauder- dale County Juvenile Probation Court. Her job consisted of interviewing children who were referred to the court as well as sustaining her own case load. " I ' ve always felt that intern- ships greatly enhance what we learn in the classroom, " said Kilburn. Internships give students the opportunity to experience actual working conditions. Interns also make decisions that can only be simulated in the classroom. " Internships let students put into practice what they learn i the classroom, " said Dr. Mura Nair, director of social internships. wor The primary purpose of th internship program is to giv the student a taste of his carec choice. Former journalism studei James L. Rhodes said of hi internship at the TimesDaily, " gave me a chance to know whi I was getting into before I gc into it.

More than 300 students are enrolled in the ROTC program. The program is primarily divided into two major sections. One is a basic program, MSI and MSn. " This program is taken as an elective, " said Cap- tain Clark T. Boyd, assistant professor of Military Science. " This program is to identify people with the potential to progress into the advance pro- gram. Students enter this pro- gram to learn what the army is about and what the career pos- sibilities are in the National Guard, Army Reserve, and Regular Army. " The second part of the ROTC program is more advanced. Here, the course numbers are listed as MSin and MSIV. Those who sign a con- tract to be in this section will actually become officers upon graduation. These people are paid a stipend of $ 100 a month while in the advance program, and learn the fundamentals of being an army officer, tactics, and military law. ROTC awards two, three and four year scholarships to stu- dents in all academic dis- ciplines. The scholarships are awarded annually and pay for books, tuition, lab fees, materials in addition to the monthly stipend. Scholarships range in value from $3,500 to $14,000. If a cadet transfers to another university, he or she may take the scholarship to that univer- sity. Scholarship recipients may serve in the Army National Guard, Army Reserves or the Regular Army. Many cadets, in fact, are cur- rently serving in ROTC and in a guard or reserve unit as an officer trainee. This program is called the Simultaneous Mem- bership Program. Cadets who participate receive additional hands-on training in leadership and additional monies for col- lege of approximately $240 per month. Some of the activities the ROTC participates in are the Ranger Challenge Team, Field Training Exercises, and com- munity functions. The Ranger Team, accord- ing to Boyd, " is the army ' s var- sity athletic program for college students. " It consists of a nine- man team competing against other ROTC schools across the nation in such sports as one- rope bridge building, weapons expertise, physical fitness, and the 10-kilometer road march. The Rifle Team, said Boyd, " is not part of the ROTC pro- gram, " but it is coached by ROTC cadre and many cadets participate in the NCA matches. ROTC cadets volunteen their time for such communi activities as the air show. ROl cadets provided security for tl air craft and traffic control ai information service for tl show. ROTC is involved in tv social functions each year. Oi is the " Dining In. " This dat( back to an old tradition which soldiers of the regime would get together and soci; ize. It was known as a milita function that was closed to ju cadets and officers. The Military Ball w£ another social event th. anyone could attend. Tho? who attend wear formal attir The spring ball, held at tf Holiday Inn, had 1 50 people attendance. At this functic there is dinner, dancing, and guest speaker.

However, both fraternities were very supportive of their respec- tive candidate, " said Maner. " I really appreciate the sup- port I received. Many people stood out in the cold handing out flyers and but- tons in order to get more students to go to the Univer- sity Center and vote.

There are ose, however, who are ipped in the grips of a ght class, from which the ily escape is a passing ade. What do students have to y about these moonlight asses? A sophomore said, think it ' s fun to stay late night, but it gets boring. " hough some would agree at night classes are By Renee Sanderson boring, few would call them " fun. " ) Some students have classes at night because the particular class would not fit into their schedules at any other time. One of the most common reasons, however, is that the class was not offered at any other time. Some students do not feel that night classes are terrors to be avoided at all costs. One student ' s feeling about night classes proves the point — " They are won- derful because some people have to work and these are the only times they have for classes. There should be more night classes. " No matter how one feels about night classes, the fact remains that some people have no choice but to take them. So, when you are relaxing at home, just remember that it could be your best friend who is trapped in night class.

" What am I going to do er college? " is often a estion students ask them- Ives before they even iduate. Although they ly be majoring in a certain Id, it does not always ;an they will be able to d a job within their major. Students work long and rd to obtain certain goals themselves before and er they graduate. Tanya Beibers, a market- 1 major, has one more ir of college. She wants to able to use her marketing gree and " contribute to ;iety " with this degree, entually she says she nts to get married and irn do be a good memaker for her family, v-ear to an almost-senior ;ms hke a long time and By Tammy Cox things can change, but fo r the present Beiber ' s main concern is to graduate. People have different concerns when they gradu- ate. Beth Greene, a manage- ment major, said that she wants to find a job that she will enjoy and make her happy. After she gets estab- lished in her job she wants to be able to make enough money that will enable her to live comfortably. When she makes enough money she hopes to get her own home and eventually " tie the knot. " Many students look for- ward to graduating so they can get on with their life. College is just another " stepping stone of life " for many people. Sandy Crea- son, a senior from Corinth, Miss., said that she " wants to be able to use my educa- tional abilities to the fullest when I graduate. " " Having a college educa- tion will hopefully help me to find a job I really want so I will be able to continue with my life, " said Creason. Many students are not too concerned with life after college because they are trying to graduate first. Ahhough they have thought about what they want to do when they graduate, they do not dwell on the issue. Their main concern now is to graduate and worry about life ' s other ordeals later. Rodney Nelson, an account- ing major, said he had no comment on his concerns after college — he just wemts to finish. NOT YET CONCERNED with life after graduation, " Connie Rickard, Jeff Smith and Tony Bivens work part-time jobs so that they can get through school lo graduation.

Webb is a clown, better lown as Zero the Clown. 3 uses his clown act to ing smiles to the faces of lildren and adults alike. One might wonder how ebb chose the name Zero r his clown name. It came out in a very simple anner. " On my first few clown xursions, I was looking r a permanent name and icided on Zero because I .ed to wear a big zero ound my left eye, " he said. He liked the name and has used it ever since. Being a clown is not a common hobby, so how did Webb strike upon some- thing so out of the ordinary? He said his first influence was not a clown. It was the San Diego Chicken; however, Webb said, " I always thought I ' d like to do that sort of thing. " After he began high school, Webb had forgotten about wanting to be a clown. But the idea suddenly came back to him one day. " When I was a sopho- more, my school was look- ing for clowns for the Homecoming parade, so I signed right up. Ever since then, I ' ve wanted to be a clown every chance I could get. " It might be logical to think that Webb admired clowns when he was a small child. Webb said that that was not the way it was. " Every kid likes clowns, " he said, " but I ' d never had that fascination with clowns. " Actions speak louder than words, so Webb takes his clowning around seri- ously. He has his own " Zero GENUINELY a " class clown, " Jay Webb uses his crazy antics to make others smile. (Photo byjana Stout) the Clown " business cards, and he likes to keep busy. " I ' ve done grand open- ings and several parades, " said Webb. " I haven ' t done birthday parties yet, but I ' d like to do some before I ' m too old for this. Of course, who ' s to say when I ' m too old? " Webb is not just a clown who enjoys making a fool out of himself. He has a seri- ous side, also, and his philosophy sums it up: " I use this logic: The painter paiits, the writer writes, and the clown . . . falls on his face.

UNA is one of only a few campuses in Alabama that is equipped with an obser- vatory and planetarium. The observatory tele- scope was first put into operation in April, 1964. It is equipped with a fourteen- and-a-half inch diameter mirror. The normal magnifica- tion used when using the telescope is 100 times, but the telescope is capable of much higher magnification. According to Dr. David Curott, professor of physics, magnification is not what is important. " What a telescope is useful for primarily is to make things brighter, not bigger, " he said. The amount of brightness is determined by the diameter of the mirror. In the past year and a half, the observatory has been used for research in measuring the brightness of stars. According to Dr. Curott, this campus is well suited for this type of research, because large telescopes cost too much to run for long-term experiments. The planetarium serves not only as a classroom, 1 also as a built-in visual i for many astronomy class Many local school grou frequent the planetarium view the constellatio projected on to the dor shaped ceiling. The observatory is op to the public and groups i encouraged to ma appointments to visit t planetarium. There is no I for using the observatc telescope.

UTAs are required to itact their group mem- s once a week, contact Huddleston biweekly, en to the students ' infor- :tive and persuasive ieches, and provide help enever asked. The program is only two irs old. Though only one ;tion of the speech sses was staffed during first year, the program is istantly growing. Is the UTA program a type of tutoring service? The program is different from tutoring because the UTAs are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Also, the UTAs are required to attend all lectures so that the stu- dents will feel more com- fortable asking questions. In fact, most of the UTAs come from the sections which have been staffed previously. " If this trend continues we will hopefully have enough to staff all of the sec- tions next year, " said Dr. Huddleston. The program requires approximately 42 students to staff all 1 4 sec- tions of Speech 201. The only problem that the program currently has is that students can only do independent study once. Dr. Huddleston created this program to combat a major problem of the com- munication department. This college is one of only four universities that still has only two hours of class- room instruction. " I think the UTAs will help fill the spot that is missed by less classroom instruction, " said Dr. Huddleston. Veronica Ayers, a fresh- man from Minor Hill, Tenn., said, " I ' m afraid that this program will come between the student-instructor rela- tionship. The students talk to their UTAs instead of their instructor when they ' re having problems. " Dr. Huddleston, on the other hand, said, " I think it ' s great, because everybody benefits — the UTAs, stu- dents, and instructors.

When he kept buying rds and bringing them me to show everyone, I gan to worry. I could see the rest of my Tiily being mysteriously awn into this cycle of ying these " worthless " jces of cardboard and in talking about them :essantly. I, however, isn ' t going to have any- ing to do with such nsense. But then it happened. I IS in a checkout line at Wal-mart when I saw them between the candy bars and road maps: a box of Topps wax packs. My palms began to sweat, my head began to pound — I couldn ' t resist any longer. I grabbed a handful of the brightly-wrapped packs and threw them down on the counter with my hair- spray and shampoo. It was then that I knew I had it — " baseball card fever. " I probably con- tracted the virus through chewing the brittle strips of super-sugary gum that is included in Topps. Since there is no known cure for baseball card fever, I resigned myself to spend- ing money on cards instead of earrings and reading the sports page instead of Vogue. By the time spring training rolled around in March, I was actually enjoy- ing card collecting. However, at the same time I realized how odd this hobby was. I was talking with a couple of guys before class about rookies I thought had a lot of poten- tial when one of them asked " How do you know so much about baseball, anyway? " I replied that I collect baseball cards. If I had said that my dad was Tommy Lasorda, they would have probably been less surprised. From that day on, though, we always had something to talk about before class. In the long run, baseball card fever wasn ' t so bad. I was able to spend hours doing nothing but sitting in front of the television. I also made a little money (base- ball cards are said to be a better investment than the stock market). And, I even met some guys, all in the name of baseball. Maybe that ' s why they call it the " Great American Hobby.

If Big Hug is not a form of affection, then what is it? It is a " non-profit record- ing entity, " said its founder Bryan Simmons, " dedicated to the exposure of previ- ously unknown musicians who would otherwise have no means of exposure. " Simmons said he picked the name for a reason: " I just wanted a real positive sounding name. " Simmons and Williams are both musicians them- selves, and they said their style of music varies. Wil- liams described his tape " The Quizzical Elves of Time " as folk classical new age. " I never known what style of music my next album will be, " he said. Simmons described his " The Sanity Show " as " an experiment with techno pop. " He also said, " Every album ' s different. My music is based on my perceptions of different things, and when I write music, I try to put myself in a different character. " Though they try different styles of music, they do know who their music would appeal to. " My music has a Euro- pean appeal, " Simmons said. Williams felt his music would appeal to people who are musicians themselves. What musicians have influenced Simmons and Williams? Williams said Eddie Van Halen is his most important influence, but international music, espe- cially Scottish and Irish, has also had an effect on hi Simmons said his ma influences are musicians has played with, such Williams and another frie Scott Whitney. He also that Love and Rockets, B-52s, and Bauhi) influenced him. Both Simmons and V liams have goals for 1 Hug. They are mostly o cerned with the exposun the musicians on the lal " We just want peopk ' hear us, " said Williai " We ' d like different type.

" The Shoals claims for its m many famous personal- es from Helen Keller to !orge " Goober " Lindsey, it the Shoals is especially oud of its musical notori- . From famous residents major recording studios hit songs, the Shoals is a finite force in the com- arcial music scene. Students here have an tra advantage over other liege students because of e musical heritage of the loals and the university ' s cellent Department of usic. While preparing for musical career, students ay experience hands on traini ng while they attend school. Being in a band and play- ing for audiences has many upsides as well as down- sides. Matt Adams, a senior from Birmingham and drummer for " Messenger " (a contemporary Christian group) finds the downside to include " lots of hard work, late nights and sore backs from loading and unloading lighting equipment. " Adams also finds that he doesn ' t get to spend as much time with his girl- friend " because band time often cuts into ' our ' time. She ' s a real trooper, though, and understands that it ' s important to me. " One of the most obvious complaints is trying to find enough to study for classes. Adams finds that he often studies " between set-up and sound checks. " VanDevender finds one of the hardest hurdles to cross as far as being in a band is " being able to work together with a positive attitude. " " It ' s a give and take situ- ation and if you succeed in making it through this obstacle there are a hundred more waiting to trip your progress, " said VanDevender. One major obstacle includes money. Living on a student budget is hard enough. " Stretching that budget to include not only your personal gear, but a P.A. and lighting equipment can put you in debt for some time, " said VanDevender. Another obstacle includes finding a place to practice. Everything from old garages to rented ware- houses are used. Van Devender finds that " when you practice, most anybody in a mile radius is going to hear you and complain. " Another problem involves working with everyone ' s schedule. " I would say this is a major reason why bands break up, " said VanDevender. Even with though there are many obstacles involved in being in a band, the stu- dents also find many benefits. " Getting to play music with some very talented guys and getting to share my beliefs through the music " is a major advantage to Matt Adams. For Charles Van- Devender " there ' s no com- parison to the feeling of standing on a stage in front of people playing your own music. " THE LOVE YUPPIES includes students Brad Futrell, Mike Howar, Drew VanDevender and David Sanford. The band often opens for Stained Mecca. (Photo by MoUie H.

(Photo, by Mark Casteel) Getting out of the line Students who pre-register find that process a hit less intimidating (and a lot less time consuming) than mass registration By Tammy Cox Registration is a process that some students look for- ward to while other students dread. When students do register, however, there are many ways they can go through the process. SOAR (Summer Orienta- tion and Advanced Registra- tion), pre-registration, registration and late regis- tration are ways for students to sign up for the classes they want. For all incoming fresh- men and transfer students, registration is simple because of the SOAR pro- gram. It is through SOAR that freshmen and transfers become acquainted with the university and registration requirements. Each person is assigned an adviser who will help him decide which courses to take, whether he has chosen his major field or not. Beth Greene, a transfer student from Northeast Mississippi Community College, went through the SOAR program. " Going to SOAR during the summer gave me a chance to register early and gave me a chance to get the classes I needed, " said Greene. NOBODY SAID pre-registration eliminates all lines— just most of them. Ginger Richards searches for computer cards for Glenda Lovelace, who has made it to the front of the line during pre- registration for the spring semester. (Photo by Jana Stout) SOAR is not the only way for a student to register. Stu- dents who are currently enrolled at the university can go through pre- registration. Pre-registration has many advantages. Being able to pre-register enables a student to register early for the next semester. It also helps a student to get the classes he needs without having to pay tuition and fees at the time he pre- registers. Fees are usually paid several weeks after a student pre-registers. Pre-registration also helps students avoid the hassle of long lines during mass registration. Many stu- dents prefer to pre-register. A social science major said, " I prefer to pre-register because I hate to wait in long lines. " She also said that there are other advan- tages. " Being a senior, I need special classes for graduation and I am able to get them during pre- registration. " If a student does not go through SOAR or pre- registration then the student can go through mass regis- tration. There are many students who go through mass regis- tration. Registration usually begins a few days before classes begin. During regis- tration advisers and coun- selors are present to help students select their classes. Registration is a longer process than pre- registration. Students stand in line for several hours waiting on their trial sched- ules to be run through the computer. Vanessa Williams, a nurs- ing and education major, said that regular registration gives the student a chance to experience a lot of differ- ent problems. If the class one wants is full, the person has to go through the process again to find a class that is open. More problems can arise if the class one needs con- flicts with other classes on his schedule. Williams said, " The schedule you get during registration will be what you build your life around, so be careful. " Though registration can be a hassle, it can be help- ful also. Students are able to meet most of the advisers and counselors. Also, the long wait in line offers s dents chances to meet n friends who are also a ious to get to the end of i line. Another way to registe late registration. There i times when students dec to switch to a different c lege at the last minute, 1 it is too late to go throu SOAR, pre-registration, s registration; therefore, i last resort is late rec tration. Tanya Beibers, a trans student from Delta St University, decided to through late registratii She heard about SOAR 1 she wasn ' t able to regis during the summer. Beib ' said, " I like late registrat: because you don ' t have go through the chase 1 you pick what classes want. " Beibers also said tf while some of the clas; were closed, it was not 1 difficult for her to get ii classes. With four different wi for students to register, tl have the freedom to deci which registration methoc best for them.

JOLY Florence Knock on wood Some superstitions are hard to shake By Dawn Gustafson Superstition: an reasoning belief in an ten, supernatural agency. Many superstitions thrive campus. Most students, naturally, ny the fact: " Of course not superstitious! " wever, when questioned, 2n those people admitted it they blow out birthday adles for good luck. Nancy Tucker explained her superstition of " splitting the pole. " " If you are walking to class with a friend and there is a light pole in your way, you should never go around it different ways because this would split the friend- ship, " she said. For Cassandra Howton, who played softball in high school, superstitions played a role in athletics. If, for instance, her team won a game on one day, then at the next game she would try to do everything she had done before and in the same order. She said she did this to bring the team good luck. So, if you break a mirror, if a black cat crosses your path, or if you lose your good luck charm, then you should probably beware. According to many people, you are in for one heck of a week.

Student tutors are chosen I ch year by the university. :fore being chosen as a tor, the applicant ' s :ords are checked, and afessors who have taught 5 applicant are asked estions about that person see if he is capable of ing a good tutor. Once a student is hired as a tutor, his responsibility is to give assistance to other students in a particular sub- ject. Tutoring services are available three days a week in the evenings in the Stu- dent Development Center. Keith Amacher, a tutor in economics, finance and statistics, said that usually three or four people each night need his assistance. When it is test time for stu- dents, the number of those needing help increases. The mathematics tutor, Regina Yates, usually has the largest number of stu- dents needing help. When the number of people reaches about 20, Kathryn Cobb, university counselor, provides her assistance. Other tutors include Lisa Lindsey, accounting; Sherry Morgan, English and his- tory; and John Lehrte, biol- ogy, chemistry, earth science and physics. Both Lehrte and Yates have worked two years as tutors. The tutors themselves also benefit from their work. Amacher said that tutoring is rewarding for him when the person needing help learns to help himself. So, if a student cannot get his books to balance in accounting or if he cannot understand the concept of continental drift, a tutor is available to lend a helping hand.

The department obtained a tracker organ of historic design. The organ is a dupli- cate of the ones found in cathedrals in Germany during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This unique instrument was formerly owned by a private citizen in California. The instrument was shipped and reassembled by Charles Ruggles of Cleveland, Ohio. Ruggles built the organ in 1975. The organ is manually operated except for the elec- tricity needed to push air through the zinc and lead pipes. This in itself is unusual in the electronic age. There are some differ- ences between the tracker organ and the modern elec- tronic ones. The tracker organ has a flat pedal board, wheras the electronic ones have bowed pedal boards. Also, the keys of the tracker organ are smaller and moi sensitive to the touch. The staff of the mus department is proud of th special instrument, and wii good reason. Cathie Hop secretary of the musi department, said that tli organ is also for students use. " Dr. Eleanor Pietch giv( lessons on the organ, " Hoii said. While history is some thing dealing with the pas the tracker organ brings e dence of that past into th present. JUNIORS, Pr Rh STEPHANIE LYNN PRENTIS Counce, TN ROGER A.

(Photo by Brigitte Borden) Family affair The Walkers put a new twist on an old cliche By Bill Jarnigan When Leilus and Stephanie Walker sat down with their family to open Christmas presents this year, they had a present that no one else in the family had. Their present was a spe- cial bond that developed over the fall semester at the university. They turned the old cliche of " like father, like son " around to read " like daughter, like father. " Leilus Walker is following in his daughter Stephanie ' s footsteps by going to UNA. Stephanie, as a Golden Girl, often gives visitors tours of campus. The most special one she has given was one for her father early GOLDEN GIRL Stephanie Walker gives a special campus tour and introduction to her father, Leilus Walker. In the library, Stephanie demonstrated how to use the com- puter index filing system. (Photo by Mollie H. McCutchen) in the fall. Her father had scholar- ships to attend UNA and the Naval Academy 23 years ago, but he and his wife Betty had started a family. " All these years, I have felt incomplete without an education. I always feh like my family was cheated because I did not go to col- lege right out of high school. I haven ' t made the money I would have with a college degree. But maybe it has been a blessing. My chil- dren are very appreciative of what we have, " Walker said. Stephanie said, " I am real happy for him, to see him working toward his longtime goal. " Walker, a T.M. Rogers High School graduate, had to juggle his work schedule at his Leighton fiberglass plant, LaGrange Manufac- turing, Inc., to accommodate his 12 -hour class load. His daughter, a junior majoring in marketing, said, " He studies every night. He puts me to shame. " Walker already sees ways to implement what he studied in his management, marketing and accounting classes. " The classes are going to make a big difference in the future. I had learned the hard way a lot of what I am now studying, " Walker said. His daughter Stephai looks forward to the taking classes together the future. " That will probably pressure on her, becaus have nothing to lose Walker said. Walker said he was s prised to see the number older students attending t university. At least 20 p cent of the student body composed of non-traditioi (25 years or oldc students. He said he does i intend to stop with a B degree in marketing, " came to learn " all he c absorb. 24 JUNIORS, Ri Sm TONYA AUSA RICKARD Florence DANIEL LEE ROBERT LaPorte, CO LYNETTE D.

The first week and a half was spent in Paris, France, Chamonix, France; Geneva, Switzerland; and Rome, Italy. The group returned to France to the University of Nice. The students attended the university while Dr. Gartman taught beginners and helped with a methodol- ogy of teaching class. Classes were held in the mornings and evenings. Afternoons were spent relaxing on the pebble beach of the Mediterranean along the French Riviera or travelling to nearby cities. Eighteen students from the university ' s School of Business and the English department went to England and France. This trip began in London, England. During their stay, the group visited Oxford, Cambridge, and Stratford-upon-Avon. Their tour included the Royal Shakespearean Theatre, a shoe plant called Toetectors, Austin Motor Company, and the British Aerospace. After visiting England, the students toured Paris for a weekend. College has its advan- tages, but when it offers stu- dents a chance to study abroad, it becomes even more worthwhile. SOPHOMORES, Du Ga CHRIS T. DUKE West Point HARVELL C.

Some people enjoy fast od restaurants like Arby ' s, cDonald ' s, or Wendy ' s, tiile others have time to it at restaurants like inceton ' s. Cafe Continen- 1, or Stephano ' s. Everyone is his own favorite place to it, and where one eats ually depends on the nount of time he has for s lunch break. Krista Clark said that she ijoys going to Princeton ' s th her boyfriend. She lies to Princeton ' s because of the " good food and fast service. " Her favorite order is chicken. Tracey Wimberly said that she goes to Court Street Cafe often for lunch with her friends. She said that the restaurant has " good food, good service, friendly waiters and reasonable prices. " She enjoys the Blackened Lemon Ginger Chicken and usually orders it for lunch. Joe Ferrell has only 50 minutes for lunch, so he likes to go to Burger King because " it has very fast service. " He likes to order fries and a Whopper with no pickles, onions or tomato. Instead of going to restaurants to eat, Mike Brand usually cooks lunch at his house. Brand said that eating at his house is " much cheaper than eating out. " He said he usually eats sandwiches or soup for lunch. Everyone is different; everyone likes to eat various foods and prefers different places to eat. The places to eat off campus are numer- ous and they cater to the tastes of all students. LUNCHTIME at Trowbridge ' s (a popular sandwich shop downtown) is cilways busy. The menu is limited, but patrons (including many stu- dents) swear by their chicken salad sandwiches, hot dogs, and ice cream. The small restaurant, which has been on Court Street since the beginning of the century, is only a ten minute walk from campus.

This is a time for home cooked food, festivity, fellowship with friends and loved ones, and overall fun, fun, fun. Holidays are usually spent with family and friends. Sometimes, though, holidays do end up being a time to tackle all homework or research projects that were pushed to the side while in school. Students have their own views and ways of celebrat- ing each holiday. Labor Day — traditioncilly marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. " It ' s a time when there cire family reunions because the weather is just perfect, " said Tammy Cox. " Labor Day is one of my favorite days of the year. I do anything but labor, " said James Rhodes. Halloween — ghosts and goblins prowl the streets after dark. " It ' s a time for children to THE WHITE SANDS of Panama City Beach, Fla., are a familiar sight to students seeking a httle rest and relaxation during Spring Break. Panama City is about a seven hour drive from Florence. (Photo by Kim Berry) dress up and go trick or treating, " said Cox. " It ' s a time to be with friends and a time to get all the mischievousness out in one day, " said Sandy Creason. " I usually sit at home in the dark and lock the door, " said Rhodes. Thanksgiving — a two day break. " A time to be spent with family and be thankful for all the things we have, " said Creason. " A time to reflect on our blessings, " said Tanya Briedon. " I enjoy Thanksgiving because it is time for fami- lies to get together and have the annual turkey dinner, " said Cox. " It usually is the holiday that makes me realize just how lucky I am, I mean, I take a lot for granted, " said Rhodes. Christmas — the most sacred holiday. " My favorite one and the most important because it celebrates Christ ' s birth. " said Briedon. " It ' s my favorite holiday because it is a time people celebrate the birth of Jesus. It ' s a time to be with family and friends, singing Christmas carols, and exchanging gifts, " said Cox. " Christmas is my favorite holiday. The true spirit of Christmas may be disguised and diluted by the commer- cialism, but I personally think everyone still recog- nizes the magnitude of the events that took place at Bethlehem. We received the greatest gift imaginable, " said Rhodes. Maw Years Day ' s — the beginning. " I think of my dad, because he was born on New Year ' s Day, " said Cox. " A chance to cross our fingers and hope it will be better than the year before. Maybe it ' s a day to celebrate before the year falls apart, " said Rhodes. St. Valentine ' s Day — " A time for the cupids to come out and shoot their love arrows and a time for couples to get engage said Cox. " A worthless little pa for some romantic dribb said Rhodes. Spring Break — a w of freedom during Man " I ' ve never really ha spring break, because w I ' m out of school I usu work, " said Cox. " The perfect opportu to catch up on studie know that ' s so boring, bi my case it ' s usually nei sary, " said Rhodes. Easter — another spi break. " A time to celebrate resurrection of Chr Flowers begin to bloom trees blossom and a time children to get surpri from the Easter Bum said Cox. " This is the annivers of Christ ' s resurrectior also is a time to remem getting a new suit whc was little, " said Rhodes Graduation — a diffei sort of holiday. " The best vacation y said Rhodes.

Terrance Sykes and Stade Sledge meet in the Music Listening Room in the University Center to relcix and chat for awhile. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) Dating — who has time for it in college? Throughout the week, the common student attends classes, does homework, studies for tests, works, and still finds time to eat and sleep. Most of the time, the thought of having a social life seems like a dream. How do students juggle dating, school, and a job all at once? Some students don ' t have a great deal of time for dating. Carol Lynne Bevis, a sophomore, said it ' s hard to find time to go out and keep grades up. " It ' s hard because your parents expect you to do so well, and it ' s hard to work your social life around your schedule. I think school should come first right now, " she said. Sophomore Renee San- derson said dating is fine " if you can work your schedule around it. " Scott Pruett, a sopho- more, has time for a social life, but he does not actually " date. " He said, " You can go places and meet people without asking them out. " He also believes time is a factor in deciding whether to date or not. Brad Viall, a sophomore who married the girl he dated during his first year in college, said that finding time to go out was compli- cated. He played football, attended classes, and had to also find time to study and be with his girlfriend. Even though he had little time to spare, he said that she was very understanding. " both had busy schedules, we set aside time to together. " What does a student w dates someone who liv " back home " do? Crys Alsup, a sophomore frc Mississippi, maintains long-distance relationsh with her boyfriend. She s£ that he does not work weekends, so that is wh they get together. " I home on weekends; he ' s work; it works out pre well. " Everyone has differc views on dating while goi to school. Some find it ea; some find it impossib What is certain is that mt students agree that findi time for dating is a la within itself.

But many married stu- dents wish there were. " Time is very precious and Hmited, " said Harold Greene, a full-time stu- dent worker. Everything demands time and it ' s very important to put in the right amount with the important things according to Greene. Being able to devise a system that works and stick- ing to it seems to be a good idea for dividing up time effectively. " It ' s all about proper management of time, " said Mike Farmer, a full-time stu- dent worker (with a 3.0 GPA). Farmer is also a lieu- tenant in the Army Reserve and is involved in UNA ' s ROTC program. Support and understand- ing from the spouse is very important in all things for married students according to Kisha Cobb, a full-time student mother wife. " My husband is a major help. I couldn ' t do it without him, " said Cobb. To make sure everything is ta care of, Cobb said she her husband alternate st shifts. Unlike some single dents the very thought o outside social life, whet on or off campus, is aln impossible, said Grt " You just can ' t do it. " " That ' s not the rr reason for our being he said Farmer. " That ' s icing on the cake. If have time for it fine; if stick to the main cours studies.

Jodi Whit- worth, Laura Call, Nancy Cain and Melissa Bailey enjoy fellowship after a dorm Bible study. (Photo by Regina Craft) Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enter- prise are not the only people who are " beamed up " to other planets. So too are thousands of high school graduates who enter college each year. These entering freshmen are often away from home for the first time and college presents a whole new world to them. They have to deal with many new experiences, and fraternity life is one of them. Freshman Scott Cor- nelius said, " At first I thought I wouldn ' t like a small college, but since I ' ve pledged a fraternity, I have had the chance to meet many friendly and interest- ing people. " Dorm hfe can also be a new experience for first year students. " Right now I don ' t have a social life because of work but there is always some- thing going on at the dorm and somewhere to go. It ' s easy to get behind if you let yourself, " said freshman Shane Kirk. Although it is quite easy to get into too many clubs and organizations and neglect course work, many freshmen use these oppor- tunities to grow emot ion as well as intellectually the time they are senio Senior English and tory major Richard Mur said, " My freshman ye was very naive. The big change is that I ' ve lear how to study and I am m more confident. " Though college life i seem overwhelming, much hard work and ci tive planning, freshmen transform themselves i more confident knowledgeable people the time they beco seniors.

A successful businessman, Culver regrets that he did not get a college education. " If I had had a college degree, I may have been something greater quicker, " he said. " I had the desire. A college education will shove you 10 to 15 years ahead of the pack. A college education means everything. That ' s why I am helping the university. " (Photo by Mark Casteel) In today ' s economy it is getting more and more difficult to get a college edu- cation. Costs for the average student can range from $1,500 to $2,000 per semester, which adds up in a household of average income. Thanks to a new aca- demic scholarship fund instituted by Ezra Lee Culver of Florence, many students will not have to worry about the costs of a college education. " My aim and sole desire is to help the less fortunate to get an education, " Culver said. His desires will prove beneficial in the years to come for many students who could not attend col- lege without help. The one million dollar endowment to the university was established as a charita- ble remainder annuity trust. Upon the deaths of Ezra Culver and his wife Elizabeth, this money provide academic scho ships tb many students Having had to quit scf in the fourth grade, Cul appreciates the need c college education in tod; society. His generosity grow with the university . help students find the 1 ness of life that he ne did. " A college educat means everything, " Cul said.

Did you ever wonder what it takes io find a good roommate? Ginger and Sandy Hel- iums had a much easier time than most students when it came to looking for a roommate — they ' re sis- ters, and decided to move in together. One might think, " Sisters as roommates? That ' s worse than trying to find someone! " Fortunately for Ginger and Sandy, that wasn ' t the case. " We ' ve always gotten along pretty well, even when we were living at home with out parents. So it ' s only natureil that sharing an apartment together is an easy as living at home, " said Sandy Heliums, a freshman. But what about the problems all roommates have, such as expenses and personal possessions? Siblings have always had difficulty with these problems, even at home where Mom could act as referee. But according to Ginger Heliums, the older of the two, this has never been a problem. " We share almost everything — our clothes, our makeup, and even the groceries. And we always divide the bills equally. We have the same likes and dis- likes in a variety of things, so sharing and getting along together is easy. " This does not mean, however, that everything is perfect. Certain irritating habits that all roommates must adjust to can be a little trying for sisters as well. " The one thing that irri- tates me the most ab ' living with Ginger is 1 kitchen messes. She make a mess and w months about cleaning up, " said Sandy. " Seve dishes are now unusual because of her cleani problem. And I belif there is still some ci batter in the bottom of " stove that she spilled thi months ago. " It seems that even sibli roomies can have a f problems, but luckily for t Heliums sisters, none t ever too serious. FRESHMEN, Ri Sa CONNIE D.

SKIMEHORNE Waynesboro, TN Crossing the street Sometimes the simple act of walking across Pine Street can be a dangerous exercise By Leigh Ann Wilson Everyone, at one time or another, has been late for a class or a meeting because of the problem of finding a parking place on or near campus or crossing busy streets that surround the school. While there has been an enrollment explosion, the university has not been able to supply students with more parking and cross- walks. That ' s hardly the university ' s fault however — the school is centered between business and residential sections, which leaves no room for more parking. Fortunately, school secu- rity eases traffic congestion by directing traffic during busy hours. If a student is able to find a legal parking place, he should be ready for no more than a ten minute hike to class, if the closest parking place is that far away. (There is usually parking available behind Flowers.) Once parked, a student is now at the point of risking his life to get to class because of so few cross- walks to the campus. This lack, especially on North Wood Avenue and Pine Street, has cilready led to the injury of two students who were struck by cars on separate occasions during the fall semester while attempting to cross Pine.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) On October 16, Alcohol Awareness Week was offi- cially " kicked off, " but many weeks before clubs and organizations began prepar- ing for the events by filming videos and practicing raps. The theme for the week was " Get ABSURD " (Get A Better Start Understanding Responsible Drinking) and was carried out throughout the week through events such as the video contest. Many organizations spent hours upon hours preparing the videos which promoted drinking responsibility. Rice Hall residents prac- ticed all evening for an entire week trying to organize, choreograph and perfect their entry. Their hard work was rewarded with a third place finish in the competition for their entry titled " The Booze Brothers. " Other winners included first place place, Zeta Tau Alpha, and second place. Phi Mu. In addition to the video contest, Monday and Tues- day included an Alcohol Awareness Trivia T- shirt Button Giveaway. Students crowded the first floor of the University Center to near capacity as they made their best effort to walk away with one of the black shirts with the lavender theme logo. The Mock DUI trial held at the University Center attended by more tha hundred students. Ninet students participated. Many students felt Thursday night ' s Campus Mixer Rap Con in Towers Cafeteria was week ' s most entertair event. After hearing f the group Onyx and Ascending Voices, studi were treated to a contest.

McCutchen) Fraternities and sororities provide more than social opportunities By Michele Anders It ' s much more than par- s and prestige. Involve- !nt in a fraternity or ority can also provide lividual and community richment. In fact, involvement is the y word in the Greek item: involvement in the mmunity, in campus ants, and within the individual organizations. Many charities rely on Greek organizations. Each fraternity and sorority spon- sors a national philan- thropy, and Greeks can be counted on to help local charities as well. Greeks are a high profile group, dedicated to improv- ing school spirit and supporting university ath- letics. Can you imagine a pep rally or a football game without the Greeks in attendance? Individual members enjoy the fellowship of their brot hers or sisters. But at the same time Greeks benefit from involvement by gaining valuable leadership experience — experience that will help each member far beyond his or her college career. The Greek system is not for everyone. But for those who elect to pledge a frater- nity or sorority, the sense of commitment and the feeling of brotherhood (or sister- hood) can last forever. PANHELLENIC ACTIVmES include special keynote speakers brought in for lunch- eons. Susan Parker, the director of Student Activities at Athens State, speaks to the group.

The week was filled with inter-fraternity and sorority activities to get Greeks to work together and promote themselves on campus. Sponsored by junior interfraternity council and junior panhellenic, activities were planned every day. Monday started the week with brag boards in the Guil- lot University Center and Greeks across campus wore jerseys to class. Tuesday brought sus- pense and excitement as fraternity and sorority officers were put behind bars to help raise canned goods for United Way for the Thanksgiving holiday. Each chapter was responsible for 50 canned goods and a meat certificate from a local grocer. Wednesday was high- lighted by a lip sync compe- tition followed by relay races. Teams composed of members from each Greek organization competed against each other to help promote Greeks working together. On the fourth and final day of Greek Week the organizations made a single donation to United Way of all items collected from the " Jail Bail " on Tuesday. A group photo was taken and Greeks were treated to an ice cream party afterwards. Greek Awareness Week, the first held on campus, was such a success that a joint IFC-Panhellenic philan- thropy project for each year has been planned — which means that Greeks will be interacting more and work- ing closely together.

WJ, PI ALPHA PHI ALPHA ALPHA TAU OMEGA Members of these fraternities stress unity while retaining their individual identities By Jim Jones The Kappa Gamma Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity is very active in the community as well as on campus. They have several com- munity services they are involved in. One of APhiA ' s goals for the year is to spon- sor a United Way Poster Child. APhiA also helped in supporting the first place Cowboys in the Florence youth football league. Their goal in community work is " to be good role models and raise the moral character of all we come in contact with, " said Marcus Leach. The requirements to be an Alpha Phi Alpha are to be " versatile, scholarly, ambitious, gentlemanly, and possessed of tenacity, " said Leach. In pursuit of these quali- ties, they have made a goal of increasing their overall grade point average in their fraternity. According to Leach, the main purpose for APhiA is to " promote unity among blacks on predominately white campuses. The single most important aspect of APhiA is unity and respect. " The brothers of APhiA presented the annual Miss Black and Gold pageant in September. Entertainment was provided by the reign- ing queen, Sonya Loveless. The purpose of the Theta Eta Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega is to make men into leaders for the future. They desire to make college a positive experience for the members. They endeavor to help the community as a whole. They strive to make members be the best they can be. The single most impor- tant aspect of ATO is the oneness through the uniting of a group without sacrific- ing the special individuality of those within. ATO has a strong commitment for bro therhood. Building a new house is their primary goal, one they plan to begin implementing in the fall. They currently live off campus. The brothers of ATO also plan to do more work in the community and on campus. The ATOs have been busy this year. They held a fundraiser for the Red Cross Hurricane Hugo Victims Relief Fund at Lions football games. The ATOs also had a Dr. Seuss party for the chil- dren ' s ward at Helen Keller Hospital. The brothers had an open party at their house which featured the b " Stained Mecca.

They also strive to help the people outside of their fraternity to achieve their goals, and are active in promoting community improvement. Kappa Alpha Psi partici- pates in several community service programs. One of these is the local Big Brothers program. The Kappas take children in the program to home football games. The Kappas also partici- pate in relief programs for the underprivileged. They collect canned goods for the Salvation Army and present turkeys to needy families at Thanksgiving. This year they also spon- sored the Great American Smokeout for the American Cancer Society. They urged students, faculty and staff to quit smoking for a day. Each member " adopted " a smoker and tried to make that person aware that smoking causes cancer. They also passed out litera- ture on campus. The purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi is achievement. It is the promise of lifelong dedication to the ideals, pur- poses and high moral stan- dards of Kappa Alpha Psi. The Lambda Omicron Chapter of Kappa Sigma is more than just a social fraternity. Kappa Sigma is very active in community serv- ices such as the Tennessee Valley River Run for Humana Hospital, and rais- ing money for their philan- thropy, the American Diabetes Association. They also assisted Champion Paper in their Casino Night in cooperation with Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. The Kappa Sigs also had several internal achieve- ments. In the last year they reached their goal of increasing their member- ship 100 percent. They were recognized by the fraternity ' s national organization with several awards such as the District Grand Master ' s Award of Excellence, the George Miles Arnold Ritual Achieve- ment Award, and the Brotherhood Achievement Award. The chapter was named an Academic Commitment Chapter for setting higher- than-required standards in grade point averages. A brother must maintain a 2.25 (on the 4.0 scale) and a pledge must have a 2.0. The Kappa Sigs have also shown communi involvement. In Novemb they held a reception f Paul Hubbert, the Alaban Education Association tree urer since 1969. Hubbert, a 1959 UN graduate, was a Democrai candidate for governor. Th was the second consecuti- governor ' s race Kapj Sigma was involved in— 1985 they held a receptii for Bill Baxley. These activities he Kappa Sigma achieve i purpose of educating mc in the areas of scholarshi leadership, social grace and brotherhood not nc mally offered in the coUec environment. They felt this educatic improves the individu members of the chapter ar builds a stronger brothc hood. In Kappa Sign " Brotherhood is for Life.

The Fiji nd extraordinaire raised 000 this year for the bama Music Hall of ae and had over 3,000 ticipants. : ' heir most significant ievement this year was final house payment made in December. s makes them the first emity on campus to own ir own house and perty. ' urthermore, Fiji co- nsored an Easter Egg It vrtth Zeta Tau Alpha for underprivileged children this past spring. Of course like other fraternities, Fiji held sorority mixers to keep the actives and pledges in high spirits. The group also had many unscheduled weekend par- ties and socials that came up throughout the year. In the future, Phi Gamma Delta looks forward to installing new officers as the old graduate and take alumni status. The 19 brothers also hope for a strong retention rate of their pledges as they hope to grow on campus. The outgoing president Gann Bryan said, " We are a diverse group who strives for excellence academically and athletically, and who strives for strong character. " He added, " Our fraternity is based on strong friendship. " " Brotherhood is by far the most important aspect of being a Pike, " said Danny L. Roberts. " We don ' t speak of brotherhood in rush because the prospective members have never gone through an initiation. This term is not in your vocabulary. " Brotherhood is the bond of men coming together for a single purpose. " All the members of Pi Kappa Alpha, Theta Alpha Chapter, must maintain a C average and have gone through pledgeship. The 33 members and 27 pledges hold a " binding together of men from differ- ent backgrounds and character into men with high ideals and values, " said Roberts. " We stress to always be true, to love your brothers, and be the best friend you can be. " Some of Pi Kappa ' s goals for this year include a com- pletion of the landscaping in their yard (including shrubs and a fence), and to con- tinue the high standards that they have set. The Pikes participated in several events this year. They took first place in Homecoming events. They also organized " Pikes at 5 p.m., " a program designed to get Pike alumni to meet with each other and the chapter. " This was an informal meeting that has taken off well, " said Roberts. Pi Kappas established their biannual chapter newsletter, which goes out to their alumni. They were very involved in community and service organizations, and they also participated in the first annual Festiversity sponsored by the University Program Council. The brothers of Pi Kap ' pa Alpha suffered the tragic loss of one of their brothers, Robert Earl Phillips, this summer. " Bobola, " as they called him, was highly regarded by the brothers and his memory will live on. " We will never forget what Bobby meant to us, and we will go on building the traditions that he was so instrumental in develop- ing, " said Roberts. PHI GAMMA DELTA— Front Row: R.

" They also have mixers with all sororities. Over the last year the SAEs have received several awards. They have won the Dean ' s Cup the last two years and have set a goal of winning a third. They have also maintained an above campus average GPA for a chapter and a pledge class over the last year. They have also experienced their lighter moments. On one occasion someone lost the key to their house. Their guest speaker and brothers ended up having to crawl in a window (which had to be broken out) to get inside. The SAEs feel they offer men the opportunity to have the best possible college experience in community service, campus activities, and all aspects of college life. In doing so they develop leadership skills and maturity. " SAEs live the meaning of a ' true gentleman ' and have the closest brother- hood possible, " said Kevin Jones. The purpose of the Eta Rho Chapter of Sigma Chi is to provide a social outlet for its brothers, to promote brotherhood, and to get involved on campus. Sigma Chi considers brotherhood to be the most important aspect of their organization. The Sigma Chis maintain a very active social calendar throughout the year. Besides their mixers with cill the sororities, they also have some big theme parties. " Sigma Chi Derby Days " is one of these. Derby Days is a week- long contest between campus women. It involves a scavenger hunt, dance, swimsuit competition, banner and yard decoration constest, and a penny vote competition for Derby Girl. They contribute the money raised from this to their philanthropy, the Cleo Wal- lace Center (a center for exceptional children). They have also done well in campus activities this year. They won the Alpha Gam Man-Mania for the second consecutive year and they also won Step Sing. The Sigma Chis have also been active in commu- nity service. Besides giving money to their philanthropy, they also operated a haunted house at Forest Hills elementary school the last two years. They also helped students move into the dorms this fall. Sigma Chi maintains an interest in academics. In the past year they have had the highest chapter GPA as well as the highest pledge GPA. They have set high goals to repeat this in the coming year and to continue to par- ticipate in campus activities. But above all their most important aspect is main- taining a strong brotherhood. a. afienst .Jratrrnititi f79 ALPHA DELTA PI ALPHA GAMMA DELTA Members of these sororities stress individuality as well as sisterhood By Sheall Jones The Beta Eta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi consists of 28 members and 16 pledges. The members must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and be a full-time student. The sisters of Alpha Delta Pi stress their individuality. " We are not stereo-typed, " said Elizabeth Richcreek. " Our sisterhood binds us together. We can always depend on our sisters for anything and everything. We are a home away from home. " Some of ADPi ' s goals included a strengthening of sisterhood, being the best at whatever they undertook, maintaining their scholar- ship standards, and keeping their standards high. The ADPis received recognition and several awards this year. They won the Step Sing competition KNEELING IN a kiddie pool filled with flour, Alpha Ganuna Delta Liza Wright works hard to find all the pennies in the White Lincoln contest during Spring Fling. (Photo by Marcus Leach) for two years in a row. They won the Alpha Tau Omega Holy Grail three years con- secutively, third place in Fall Fling, and Spirit Challenge. Their most significant achievement was receiving the Diamond Four-Point, a national award for excellence. The ADPis also partici- pated in a phone-a-thon for United Way and a " Bowl for Kids ' Sake " for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Two social events included the Black Diamond Formal, held in Memphis at the Peabody Hotel; and a spring date party, " Beach Party Riot, " in the Shoals. The ADPis found time to devote to their philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. The sisters went trick-or-treating for canned goods and donations for this cause. They also support a foster child in India. " Individuality — we really stress it, and we support each sister in every endeavor she may attempt or achieve, " said Lori Brown, a member of Alpha Gamma Delta. To be an initiated member a pledge must be a full-time student with a 1 .0 grade point average. Sisters must maintain a 1.6 GPA. There are 37 members and 24 pledges. Alpha Gam goals include achieving top grades on campus, winning the Intramural Sports Trophy, and holding a successful " Man-Mania. " (The Alpha Gams were the first sorority ever to win the Intramural Sports Trophy.) The sorority also had an Alpha Gam Sweetheart Calendar with each frater- nity represented. The Alpha Gams won overall in Spring Fling com- petition; won the camp three-on-three basketb competition and advanc to the playoffs in Miss sippi; and won tennis a weightlifting competilioi The group was first runni up in Step Sing and fi runner-up in Homecomi activities.

Many Greeks find that living in a residence hall makes it easier to be involved in Gf ' iek activities. The Nu Omicron Chap- ter of Alpha Kappa Alpha promotes sisterhood and service to all mankind. The sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha hold as goals for this year to continue to be of service to the commu- nity and to campus. They stress unity on campus through their organization and other organizations as well. They value the projection of a positive image so that other women will want to join AKA. Requirements for mem- bership include a 2.5 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) and a desire for com- munity service. Pledges must be full-time students and must attend fall rush parties. The sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha have several achievements for this year. Several of their sisters are involved in campus activi- ties such as Golden Girls, the volleyball team, The Flor-Ala, and the University Program Council. AKA Regina Simpson was Homecoming Queen. The sisters of AKA worked hard all year long. They donated food to the Help Center, and they also DELTA SIGMA THETA— Sherry Brown, Cassondra Thompson, Lynn Humes, Dr. Felice Green. donated a number of neces- sities to SafePlace, a shelter for victims of domestic violence. The sisters also took baskets to a needy family at Thanksgiving. They visited several local hospitals in our area for Halloween, and always do something spe- cial for a needy family at Christmas. Often this involves taking food to the family and toys to the children. The sisters of AKA greatly stress their involve- ment in community service. " There are a lot of people in need that you never think of that are here locally in our own community. They should come first, for char- ity begins at home, " said Regina Simpson. The sisters feel that their most significant achieve- ment has been getting a group of women to work for a common goal: service. " The earthquake [in California] and hurricane [in South Carolina] made us realize how much we mean to one another, " said Simpson. The sisters do find some time for fun projects. They had a candy apple sale and several socials this year. They attended their regional meeting in Nashville in November. The sorority is composed of ten members. Alexis Suggs is adviser. " Even though we are a small number, we work hard to get things achieved. We want to keep the sorority going even after some of us graduate. We will continue to strive to be involved alumni for those who follow after us, " said Simpson. The Xi Phi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta is not only a social sorority, but also a community service sorority. They hold community service as a most important aspect of their organization. They strive to make the community a better place to live. Women who wish to become members of Delta Sigma Theta must be com- munity service oriented, must have good character, and must have an overall grade point average of 2.5. Some of Delta Sigma Theta ' s goals for this year include " an increase in membership and to con- tinue to work with needy children, " according to G sondra Thompson.

' We greatly stress ' idualism as well as aca- lics, " said Kim Jackson. 1 the spring Phi Mu ' isored the first annual I Bash Fundraiser for the dren ' s Hospital in Bir- Ijham. In the winter Phi sponsored a cam- vide fundraiser, the -a-Thon, also for the ital. the fall semester Phi worked with Festiver- sponsoring two booths raising money for 2d Way. Phi Mu made the Pan- hellenic Rush quota in their fall formal rush. " We are proud of this achievement, " said Jackson. Over the years Phi Mu has had many campus leaders, Miss UNAs, Homecoming Queens and other members that they are proud of. Phi Mu consists of 65 members and 28 pledges. They consider sisterhood their most important aspect. The Eta Rho Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha is com- posed of 47 members and 23 pledges. They require pledges to pass all their pledge tests and maintain a 2.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale). The pledge must be a full- time student and involved in two activities on campus during her pledgeship. The purpose of Zeta is to intensify friendship, to pro- mote happiness among its members, and in every way to create such sentiments. They strive to achieve such deeds and to mold such opinions. " Zeta strives to contribute to the building up of a nobler and purer womanhood, " said Cherie Garner. The Zetas held several service projects throughout the year. They had an Easter Egg Hunt with the Fijis for underprivileged children, a Tootsie Roll Drive for United Way, a Caddy Day for char- ity, a Panhellenic Christmas party for underprivileged children, and a sampler supper for their philan- thropy, ARC.

ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA OMICRON DELTA KAPPA PHI KAPPA PHI Members in these organizations are recog nized for tiieir scholarship, leadership, and service By James L. Rhodes The university chapter of ipha Lambda Delta is )en to all freshmen with a 5 grade point average, cording to adviser Dr. eanor Gaunder. " Alpha Lambda Delta is imarily to promote aca- :mic scholarship between ;shman and sophomore jdents, " said Gaunder. " he students themselves e sophomores by the time ey become officers, and by len they are encouraging e freshmen to do as well they can. They also icourage each other. " Gaunder said the single ost important aspect of pha Lambda Delta is aca- :mic excellence, both in gard to recognizing the complishment of the stu- nts and to encourage :oming freshmen. Gaunder said a lot of ' .shmen may confuse the ciety with a fraternity cause of the Greek name, t the intent of the group to make them aware it is jre and what it offers to )se eligible. " Every year I think the organization is becoming more involved in campus life, " she said. Gaunder said the organi- zation was considering an attempt to work with Phi Kappa Phi to sponsor aca- demic forums. Gaunder and Alpha Lambda Delta member Tammy Guyse attended the organization ' s national con- vention in San Antonio, Texas. The group held an infor- mation party for prospective members in October. The group also awards the JoAnn Trow award, which is a sophomore award of $100. This year ' s award went to Katie Cope. The winner is selected each January. The group also awards the outstanding senior award to the senior member with the highest GPA, as well as offering applications for 14 national fellowships to anyone who is interested. " It ' s a wonderful group to work with, " Gaunder said. " It ' s a chance to work with the best and brightest. " Omicron Delta Kappa, a leadership honorary society, stresses the recognition of high standards of efficiency in collegiate activities. They value the bringing together of students and faculty members on a basis of mutual interest and understanding. Membership is by invita- tion only. Juniors and seniors are recognized on the basis of exemplary character, responsible leadership, and service in campus life and superior scholarship. ODK tapped selected stu- dents in November. The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi (Chapter 132) offers its members a chance to associate and familiarize themselves with all disciplines on campus, according to adviser Dr. Patricia Chandler. " The contact on Phi Kappa Phi is on the highest basis, " Chandler said. " One of the nice things on this campus is you have faculty, staff and students from every part of the campus, they get to meet people from all disciplines, and it seems to give all of them a sense of purpose. " Chandler said that the honor society had an active core of membership, and at any given time may have as many as 240 members. Students interested in Phi Kappa Phi must be a junior or senior with a 2.5 grade point average and of good character, according to Chandler. Chandler estimated that about 10 percent of the junior class and five percent of the senior class would be inducted into the society. Chandler said the society inducts about 40 students per semester. These, she said, are inducted at the Phi Kappa Phi initiation banquet which is held each fall and spring. Chandler said that up to four faculty, staff or adminis- tration personnel could also be inducted in a year ' s time. Chandler said the main goal of Phi Kappa Phi is " recognizing superior scholarship in UNA stu- dents. " According to Chan- dler, this goal is met not only by inducting members, but also by offering a sopho- more level scholarship and a cash prize for superior stu- dent term papers offered through Student Scholar Forum. Chandler said a student is also nominated each year by the organization for a national fellowship award. " We recognize students with the highest GPA in their classes at Honors Day, " Chandler said. " We also have a distinguished member award given each year to the member whose scholarship service to the chapter or creative accom- plishments are outstand- ing, " she said. This year ' s initiation ban- quets were held on April 25 and December 20. The honor society was established at the university in 1971 when the existing honor society adopted the Phi Kappa Phi charter, Chandler said.

Under the leadership of Drum Major Regina Yates, the band played " Get Me to the Church on Time " and a " West Side Story " medley for the percussion section. The Pride of Dixie was the exhibition band at several local competitions. Dennis Diffie, band director of Pell City, said " Dr. Edd Jones is to be commended for not only providing an unparalleled musical presentation to a capacity crowd at the 9th Annual Pell City Marching Festival, but also for representing the University of North Alabama with such courteous and well disciplined band members. " Helping to give the band that polished look, are several student leaders: Head Lionette, Marnie Suggs; Head Majorette, Malaea Nelms; and flag corps captain Dawn Victor. These leaders, along with Drum Major Regina Yates and band director Dr. Edd Jones, help to field a won- derful band that gets better By Tressy Ayers every year. For the band students who excel, there is an honorary fraternity and sorority. Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma pro- vide support for all parts of the performing Pride of Dixie. The honors organizations provide service to the band and honor outstanding stu- dents while promoting the band and bringing a closer relationship between the band members.

Besides the marching band, there is a Concert Band which performs every spring. There is also a Jazz Band which performs on campus and around town. And the Pep Band performs at all home basketball games. " These bands are just as important as the marching band because they are important to the training of future band directors, as well as providing a different format, " said Dr. Jones. For all music studer who perform, there offered either a full schoh ship and waiver of out- ' state fee or a one-half one-fourth scholarship.

The Lionettes, made up of 18 women, is basically a Ijerformance organization that entertains during half- time shows, parades, and the Miss UNA Pageant. In order to become a Lionette, one must be a full- time student and must go through auditions in the spring. During auditions, prospective Lionettes must learn dance and kick rou- tines. Practice is a way of life for the dance team. The Lionettes practice five days a week with the band and also spend several hours practicing on their own each week. The Lionettes also prac- tice as a group at least two hours a week. During the summer, every other Sunday is set aside for group practice. Head Lionette Marnie Suggs thinks that the time spent together in practice helps the group to become good friends and a very close group. In order to keep this closeness, the Lionettes often do fun things after practice as a group. They have a Christmas party, go skating, and often plan slumber parties. According to Suggs, " This helps the Lionettes get close, and a group that is close works better together. " " To work with the band and add a little sparkle to the band " — according to head majorette Malaea Neims, this is the purpose of the Majorettes. The ten majorettes were chosen during try-outs held in the spring. During try-outs, the women must create and per- form their own dance rou- tine and twirling routine. They must also learn a march and twirling routine taught at the majorette clinic, as well as meet specific height weight requirements. The majorettes have faced hardships in the past couple of years. Last year, three majorettes were lost due to injury, and this year the line had eight new mem- bers, leaving only two returning majorettes. In spite of this, the line worked well together. This was due mainly to practice. The majorettes practice everyday at 2 p.m. with the band and on Saturday mornings. The majorettes usually perform a total of 1 2 to 1 5 hours a week. In addition to working with the band, the majorettes also performed at other functions, such as performing at a few of the basketball games. This year, the Pride of Dixie Marching Band ' s fea- tured twirler is Kami Sand- lin, a freshman from Cullman. She has been a member of the Southern Starlets, a group that com- petes and performs for the public, for the past seven years. Sandlin has won many titles including Miss Majorette of Alabama and Miss Majorette of the South. During tryouts for UNA fea- ture twirler, she had to per- form a routine which she created. Sandlin practices three to four hours a day. She enjoys twirling and feels she has gained a lot from it. Accord- ing to Sandlin, " performing in front of a crowd h helped me build se confidence. " Seven members make this year ' s Pride of Dix Marching Band Flag Corp In order to become member of flag line, oi must have one year of fli line experience or i interest in learning how handle a flag. According to Daw Victor, flag corps captai the flag corps has real pulled together. This year line included one memb who had never twirled flag. The others cheerful spent time teaching her. Working together as team helped the flag cori pull everything together. Victor said that the Fl; Corps adds to the band performance through tl choreography and color the flags, and their uniqi routines.

If that saying is true, then this university, with its Collegiate Singers, Ascending Voices, and Commercial Music Associa- tion, should be able to send a message to the world. The Ascending Voices, conducted by student Marcus Stewart, has 40 members. The only require- ment for membership is that a person be a full-time stu- dent or a faculty or staff member. What is the purpose of the Ascending Voices? Stewart said, " Our purpose is to promote gospel music throughout our campus and also to uplift the name of Jesus Christ. " The group of singers also feels that it is very important that the organization brings students closer together. Like most groups, the Ascending Voices has goals, but there seems to be one that is very important to them. Stewart said, " Our goal for this year, as for every year, is to become the best college gospel choir in the nation. " They also hope to achieve another important goal which Stewart said would be " to travel at least four days during spring break. We want to travel around at least all the Southern states. " Another prominent vocal group on campus is Col- legiate Singers. The 48 members were chosen through audition and were judged by their background By Anissa Palmer experience and vocal eibility. The new choral director, David Anderson, said that the Collegiate Singers ' pur- pose is " to perform the best in choral literature and to express meaning in a high level art form. " Anderson also said that Collegiates gives students the opportu- nity to experience the arts in a way few others are allowed or choose to do. Quality performances, the recruiting of qualified students, and the enjoyment of friendship by the mem- bers of each other ' s com- pany are only a few of the goals that Anderson hopes he and the members of the Collegiate Singers reach. He does feel, however, that his students have already made an accomplishment; a smooth transition from the retired director, Joe Groom, LED BY CHORAL DIRECTOR David Anderson, the CoUegiate Singers perform at the Homecoming Alumni Brunch in the Univer- sity Center.

The pur- pose of CMA is " to support and develop the commercial music program, to keep members informed of cur- rent events in the music industry, and to serve as a catalyst toward helping members reach profes- sional goals, " according to the CMA constitution. Membership is open to all students interested in commercial music. CMA vice president Jay Webb said that the organiza- tion " allows members to be in contact with other com- mercial music majors " so that they can discuss what their goals are for their careers in the music ind try.

I can do this by giving tours on campus to prospective stu- dents and also by talking to students outside of UNA about coming here, " said Jill Young. The Golden Girls and Ambassadors are the Tirst students seen by most visi- tors to campus. Their image and manner depict the style of the university they represent. Because of this, all Golden Girls and Ambas- sadors must meet certain criteria for membership. They must be single, have a grade point average of at least 1.25, have completed at least 12 hours of under- graduate work, and meet weight height requirements. They must follow a strict constitution which outlines their conduct in uniform, and which promotes high academic standards and university involvement. The Golden Girls and Ambassadors work directly for President Robert M.

Tucker said that one of le goals of the organization )r this year was to " start ut earlier and try to involve lore students. " Members of Circle K only ave to have an interest, pay iieir dues, and be willing to articipate in the projects to :iin. Tucker said. ' " We ' re basically a service roup, and giving to the immunity, and the satisfac- jn that comes in return, is hat keeps us together, " jcker said. ; Circle K worked on com- munity projects for Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital, Mitchell Hollingsworth Nursing Home, the St. Florian ' s Children ' s Home and the Red Cross during the year. The organization held a banquet on November 11 in the University Center. New members are inducted into the Circle K International organization in the spring and fall. " I feel that you learn more when you work with the community instead of within a group, " Tucker said. " We ' re trying to attract more people into the group so we can return what the community gives us. " By James L. Rhodes The service sorority of Alpha Sigma Lambda applied for its national charter with the Alpha Sigma Lambda Colony of Omega Phi Alpha. According to adviser Lor- raine Glasscock, the service organization will be known as Omega Phi Alplia instead of Alpha Sigma Lambda. Membership is by invita- tion, and members are required to maintain a 1.0 grade point average (on a 3.0 scale) and to put in a set number of service hours in four different areas, Glass- cock said. These areas are (1) university service, (2) com- munity service, (3) service to the organization, and (4) service to the nation. " We are not a social sorority, " Glasscock said. " Service is the underlying feature. " " The purpose of the sorority is to get students involved in order to encourage friendship among the girls, leadership, and to promote community, university and organiza- tional service, " Glasscock said. The sorority participated in projects which included the Bachelor Bachelorette Auction during Spring Fling week. Funds from this event were donated to the King ' s Ranch. Other activities the sorority participated in were a Halloween carnival for the children in Humana Hospi- tal, Florence; donating food to a needy family at Thanks- giving; participating in " Get ABSURD " week and the FUl- a-Stocking fund. " This year we ' re going to be spending a lot of time getting our national accredi- tation. That is one of our primary goals, " she said. Officers for the sorority were Cissy Egly, president; Donna Hudson, vice presi- dent; Lynn Fulkes and Andrea Sigle, secretaries; Debra Scofield, treasurer; and Layne Gobble, reporter. Advisers for the sorority are Lorraine Glasscock and Le Anne Wells. CIRCLE K— Front Row: Rewana Scruggs, Rick Phillips, Michelle Tucker, Trinda Owens.

The SGA serves as the tudent ' s voice to the idministration and pro- notes unity and cooperation imong students while trying 3 further worthwhile activi- les of student life. Membership in SGA is pen to all students, with lections held in the spring. The SGA provides serv- ;es to students such as anting refrigerators to resi- I ence hall students, provid- lig low-cost student tsurance, and co- I ponsoring the Student Dis- count Program. The SGA is involved in activities on campus and sponsors many events to get students to interrelate more on campus. Student voice their opin- ions to the campus through the SGA. " That ' s what we are, a voice for the stu- dents, " said Paul Foster, vice president. Several concerns of the SGA this year have included crosswalks for dangerous streets frequently used by students, lights at the tennis courts for night play, and parking probl ems. SGA holds meetings each Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in the By Scott Cecil University Center. The University Program Council (UPC) is embodied by representatives from every student organization on campus as well as interested individual students. The major purpose of UPC is to initiate, plan, pro- mote, provide and assist in providing social, cultural, intellectual, and recreational activities and programs for the university community. It is this group that is responsible for bringing at least one top name enter- tainment group to campus each semester. .IVERSITY PROGRAM COUNaL— Front Row: Jorja Harris, Lisa Downs, Donna Hudson, Trinda ' n.s, Suzanne Butler, Leigh Anne Tomerlin, Claudia Henao, Stephanie Malone, Lorn Glover.

Spring Fling, and Honors Night. Other events, such as triple feature movies on Saturdays, are planned throughout the year. UPC meetings are held weekly and are open to all students. College Republicans is open to anyone interested in politics. Its purpose is to promote, educate, and interest students in the ideals of the Republican party, as well as to interest all students in patriotism and their democratic rights.

Students interested in these fields have an opportunity to further their study through participation in three campus organizations. The Rho Beta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, with its 20 members, encourages the study of all fields of his- tory through recognizing excellence. The only requirements for membership are the completion of 12 credit hours of history, of which at least six are at UNA, and a grade point average of 2.0 overall and 2.1 in all history courses completed. One of the single most important aspects of this organization, according to Dr. Mary Jane McDaniel, faculty adviser, is to " recog- nize superior scholarship in history and to encourage the students to continue to strive for excellence. " The History Club is organized to stimulate interest in the field of history beyond the opportunities provided for in regular aca- demic courses. By Scott Cecil To this end, the club invites guest speakers to their monthly meetings. In October, William Mac- Donald spoke to the club during a meeting in the Wesley Foundation. MacDonald is the author of several articles dealing with the history of Lauder- dale County. He spoke to club members cibout Sweet- water, Alabama, a subject about which he has written a book. Throughout the year the History Club sponsors joint activities with Phi Alpha Theta, such as the spring picnic. Officers for the History Club are Jeff Taylor, presi- dent; James Ward Cobb, vice president; David Ballew, secretary; and Lorri Glover, treasurer. Their adviser is Dr. Lawrence Nelson. The Political Science Club is open to any student who is interested in actively participating in political activity. Practical political education is derived from guest speakers, group dis- cussions, and organizational instruction. One political science stu- dent had the opportunity to observe the political process in action during the sumr term. Mark Wayne Hall, senior, spent the sumr months as an intern in Washington, D.C., office U.S. Senator Howell Hef D-Alabama. Prior to his trip, Hall s; " I am excited to be gi opportunities to learn fi hand the processes in wh our government operate Officers for the Politi Science Club are Ed Swindall, president; Jan Kingsley, vice preside Ben McClure, secretary; i Ella Davis, treasurer. Dr. Frank Mallonee is club ' s adviser. raSTORY CLUB— Front Row: Kelly Cornelius, Anita Glover, Jeff Taylor, Jeanine Scott, Jennifer Spray, Kim Martin, Peter Barty.

There are many majors, however, that focus primarily on these things, and some majors have honor societies that recog- nize academic achievement. There is an honor society or students majoring or ninoring in the social iciences — Delta Tau i appa. To be initiated, a i-tudent must have at least a J average in all course work .ompleted and must be of unior or senior standing. The most important ibjective of Delta Tau appa is academic achieve- nent. That is the purpose nd the primary goal of the lub, said adviser H.S. vbdul-Hadi. The Geography Club onsists of about 20 mem- bers. The club is open to all tudents who are interested 1 geography, and the club as many purposes. Some of the purposes are to expose students to the onacademic aspects of eography including pro- rams presented by those orking in the field of ' pplied geography; and to rovide a forum for gradu- tes from the program to keep contact wih the depart- ment, " said adviser Frank N. Himmler. The most important aspect of the Geography Club is to expose the work of professional geographers to students who might be interested in such a career. Some of the club ' s goals were " to promote a depart- mental homecoming for past geography students as a part of the university Homecoming, to organize activities for Geography Awareness Week, and to invite past graduates to make presentations at club meetings, " said Himmler. The Geography Aware- ness Week was the club ' s most significant achieve- ment of the year, and one of their primary accomplish- ments was the fundraising for the creation of a scholar- ship in geography. In the spring, the Geogra- phy Club helped host the Alabama State Geography Bee. In the fall, the club held an open house during Homecoming for past geog- raphy students. After the open house and before the football game, a cookout was held. A physical education class is required for every- one before graduation. But for one group of students, physical education is more than a class — it ' s a way of life. The Physical Education Majors (PEM) Club was formed for this group of about 100 students to " broaden knowledge and experience by individually developing the objectives of PEM " and to " provide opportunities through professional growth in the local, state and national organizations " according to Kim Greenway, club presi- dent, and Don McBrayer, adviser. The club is also designed to promote sound public relations on all levels and to provide meaningful oppor- tunities for recreation. McBrayer and Greenway said that professional involvement is the most important aspect of the organization — so much so that the by-laws were changed this year to reflect a " more professional stand. " The club was awarded the Willis Baughman Award which is given to the out- standing PEM club in the state of Alabama, a goal which the club had set for itself. The club has won the award five out of the nine years it has been given. The PEM Club partici- pates in community services such as hospital visitation and " Bowl for Kids ' Sake. " The club raised $750 for the tournament and placed fourth overall in the Muscle Shoals area. When the university was selected to host the Southeastern Regional Clinic on Physical Fitness and Sports (sponsored by the President ' s Council on Fitness and Sports), the PEM club assisted in the planning. One member. Buck Wil- liams, even performed an aerobic dance routine at the Fintess Gala, a part of the program. He did not know the routine, had not prac- ticed it before the perfor- mance. But he danced anyway ... in front of 3,500 people. On Halloween, members went to the children ' s ward of ECM Hospital and presented balloons and other treats to the children. During Christmas the club " adopted " two angels from the Salvation Army Christmas tree in Regency Square Mall. In order to become a member of Psi Chi (the national honor society in psychology), a student must be of junior or senior status with a B average. The stu- dent must also be a major or minor in psychology with at least nine semester hours in psychology courses. The purpose of the Psi Chi organization is to " encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, partic- ularly in psychology; and to advance the science of psy- chology, " said Judy Pilu, secretary. Psi Chi is a relatively new organization on campus, having been established in April, 1988. A funny thing happened to the group this year. Pilu said, " In April 1988, the UNA chapter of Psi Chi was formed and ten members were initiated. All of these members but one graduated in May. In December 1988 five new members were initiated. All five became officers, and the last member of April 1988 graduated. So, until April of this year, Psi Chi consisted of five officers and no members. " Psi Chi has regularly scheduled meeting. In the fall, meetings are held every third Thursday in Wesleyan Hall and in the spring they are held every first Monday in Wesleyan Hall. The club adviser is Dr. Charles Joubert. tYSICAL EDUCATION MAJORS CLUB— Front Row: Mike Hall, Vicki Underwood, Kim Greenway, dinda Burcham, Ann Boyd, Don McBrayer.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) lit; 1 ..i ALPHA KAPPA DELTA PHI ALPHA SWO SOCIOLOGY These students are involved in a different sort of science By Scott Cecil and Tammy Cox What comes to your mind hen you think of science? ou probably see images of makers and dissecting kits; owever, science is not ways found in a labora- ry. The social sciences are roof of that. When the Theta Chapter t Alpha Kappa Delta held s annual initiation iremony, nine new mem- ;rs were initiated. The ganization honors those ho excel in sociology and iminal justice. The purpose of Alpha ippa Deha, only open to niors and seniors, is to omote an interest in the lids of sociology and crimi- il justice, research on dal problems, and such tier social and intellectual tivities as will lead to provement in the human ndition. Phi Alpha is the national cial work honor society. ' , imbers are required to have a B plus average in all social work courses and a B average overall. According to Dr. Murali Nair, the organization stresses excellence in aca- demic areas and encour- ages scholarship in its students. Students from the club present papers at both national and international conferences of the larger organization. Last spring Phi Alpha conducted an essay contest for area high school seniors. About 30 high schools par- ticipated in the competition. The club assists the Social Work Organization with Social Work Day each year. Phi Alpha also awards honorary membership to people in the broader area of helping others. Past winners of the award include Di Tyree, chairman of the United Way; Dr. Jack Moore, dean of Arts and Sciences; and Dr. Joseph Thomas, dean of Faculty and Instruction. The Social Work Organizaftion (SWO) has 38 active members. To qualify for membership a person must be a social work major currently enrolled. The SWO ' s purpose is to help social work students function more effectively within the environment and the community, while help- ing gain insight into profes- sional application of social work. The SWO provides scholarships to its mem- bers. The SWO awarded scholarships to students who presented papers at the National Undergraduate Research in San Antonio, Texas. Five students were awarded scholarships during the year. The goals for the SWO are to be more visible on campus through activities. The SWO participated in the first annual Festiversity. They also held their annual picnic at Veteran ' s Park. Also, every spring they sponsor Social Work Day Social Work Month. The day consists of a whole day ' s worth of activities including guest speakers and special awards. The awards are given to a stu- dent of the year, for recog- nition for highest academic achievement and for service in the community. The most important aspect of the Social Work Organization is that it ena- bles its students to socialize and to get more involved in different social issues that affect the university and the community. The Sodology Criminal Justice Club promotes interaction among the stu- dents and facuhy. Any stu- dent or faculty member who is interested in sociology or criminal justice can become a member. The club was organized to stimulate interest in the two fields. The club discusses issues of interest in the field. The students visit correctional facilities and other sites of interest. The members visited Wayne County (Tenn.) Correctional Center. Not only do they visit facilities, but they also view videos related to crime and delinquency. Guest speakers also talk to mem- bers on such topics as arson, religion and career opportunities. Activities for the fall include a cookout at McFarland Park. Other activities the club partici- pated in were doughnut sales and a canoe trip from McFarland Park. The Sociology Criminal Justice Club secured gradu- ate assistantships and let- ters of recommendation for student participants. It also furthered the professional interests of student par- ticipants. The club holds monthly meetings in Stevens Hall.

A newly formed organiza- )n, the Baha ' i Club has n members. The club is ised on the teachings of e Baha ' i faith which elude " the elimination of I kinds of prejudice, dividual search for truth, 3 equality of men and )men, the harmony of lience and religion, protec- n of cultural diversity, the eness of God, the one- ss of rehgion, and the eness of mankind, " said laron Holley, president of ; club. What are the require- ;nts for membership? ou just have to be erested in what our club about, " Holley said. The most important sect of the Baha ' i Club is ' . " promotion of the unity mankind, " said Holley. e of the club ' s goals is to 3in a series of workshops ich will reduce prejudice long mankind. The mem- " s have been working h Wesley Foundation, the Social Work Club, and resi- dence hall students to achieve this goal. Holley said, " They were enthusiastic about the idea . . . They have all been extremely helpful. " The Baha ' i Club meets monthly in various places on campus. The meeting location " depends on what we are meeting for, " said Holley. The adviser for the club is Jacqueline Osborne, who is a supervising teacher at Kilby School. The Baptist Campus Ministry experienced a name change during the year — it was formerly the Baptist Student Union. It has a membership of 250 stu- dents, with about 65 of those being new students. The one requirement for membership is attendance of the BCM functions. Every student is welcome to attend the meetings held twice a week. The purpose of the BCM is to help reach students and others within the aca- demic community so that they might grow spiritually through an understanding of God, the Bible, and the church. The BCM also strives to train members in evangelis- tic outreach, involve them in missions and ministries, and develop their leader- ship skills. Some of BCM ' s goals are " to share Christ with college students and faculty, to raise $3,000 for Summer Mis- sions, " and to send out mis- sionaries for the Summer Missions, said new BCM adviser Eddy Garner. Their most significant achievements were the Out- reach ' 89 Evangelistic Emphasis and also Missions Emphasis Week. BCM had several accom- plishments, also. During the summer they sent 12 summer missionaries out to places from Alabama to Alaska. Some BCM mem- bers also took a trip to South Carolina to help with recon- struction after Hurricane Hugo. The BCM was active in many campus activities during the year. In a Student Center Clean-up Day, mem- bers cleaned up the Robert M. Guillot University Center. They also held a Spring Luau and Talent Show which was catered by Rick ' s Restaurant, and were the winners of the Spring Fling Competition and the Homecoming Spirit Challenge in their division. During Welcome Week, the BCM organized various activities, from a Chat and Chew Progressive Dinner to a Ping Pong Tournament to aid Summer Missions. About 75 members make up the Christian Student Center, and membership is open to all who are interested in joining. Director Tim Stafford said that the purpose of the CSC is " to minister the word of Jesus Christ on campus and to help college students with whatever their needs might be. " He also said it is very important to members to be committed to Jesus as Lord and to have fellowship with other Christians. The CSC had several goals for the year. They were striving to " be of greater service to college students, to deepen faith in Jesus Christ, and to strengthen unity " among members, said Stafford. The CSC also made several achievements: they doubled the number of on- campus Bible studies, and raised over $ 1 ,000 for inter- national famine relief with a 36-hour fast-a-thon. The group also organized an evangelism campaign to Bethlehem and AUentown, Penn. During the Pennsylvania campaign, a funny thing happened to CSC ' ers. While doing door to door evan- gelism in AUentown, the CSC members were taken to the police station by local police and questioned about their activities! After the police learned the CSC ' ers intentions, they let them go. The CSC organized many activities themselves. They held three retreats and a hayride. CSC ' ers also had a chance to travel during a chorus trip to such cities as Mobile, Fair Hope, and Bir- mingham. With such organizations as the Baha ' i Club, the Bap- tist Campus Ministry, and the Christian Student Center, students have a var- iety of religious organiza- tions to choose from.

CCM EPISCOPAL ALTERNATIVE WESLEY FOUNDATION Campus religious organizations offer a variety of ways for students to get involved Who said fellowship uld not be fun? No one )u]d say that if he had ever perienced the fun one Ccin ive in fellowship with mbers of the Cooperative impus Ministry, the Epis- pal Alternative, and the jslev Foundation. Methodists, Catholics, d Episcopalians make up J membership of the loperative Campus nistry. The only require- nnt for membership is " a lingness to participate, " d member Lori Delano. The CCM ' s purpose is to ther together faculty and idents of different nominational back- unds. Most importantly, .vever, the CCM promotes ility of life programming students, faculty, and ff. Some of the goals for the M were to have a faculty nic and to develop stu- it study forums. The alty picnic was held and was successful, according to Delano, but the CCM also held a Christmas banquet and a student cookout. Other CCM activities were the construction of a Homecoming yard display, a student retreat, and a canoe trip. Another organization on campus is the Episcopal Alternative. Membership is composed of those who are either Episcopalian or want to learn about the Episcopal church. Those are the only requirements someone needs in order to join, said adviser Julia McCutchen. Though worship is the single most important aspect of this organization, the other purposes for the Episcopal Alternative are " to learn about our Chris- tian responsibilities in the world and to gather for fel- lowship prayer, and serv- ice, " said McCutchen. The members also hope that other people will By Anissa Palmer become interested in and join their organization, and they hope to do more serv- ice projects for the community. The Episcopal Alterna- tive ' s accomplishments were impressive ones. They hosted some Japanese stu- dents and helped host a Valentine dance for the Shoals Mentally Retarded citizens. They were also suc- cessful in obtaining funding for their organization. During the year, the Epis- copal Alternative ' s activities were many. They held a weekend retreat in Dubose, Tenn.; had an end-of-the- year picnic with the Cooper- ative Campus Ministry; and held a progressive dinner throughout the dormitories. They also sold brownies during Festiversity and held a study seminar. The Episcopal Alterna- tive has meetings three times a week; the " lunch bunch, " held twice a week, meets in the Rohjert M. Guil- lot University Center, and the other meeting is held at the Trinity Episcopal Church on Pine Street. The Wesley Founda- tion, meets three times a week. All UNA students are invited to attend meetings and become members. The Wesley Foundation is bound together by mem- bers who want " to enhance the quality of life— spiritually, physically, emo- tionally, and intellectually, " said treasurer Lori Delano. The organization worked to increase membership, visibility, and involvement in university and community activities. They have been able to increase member- ship and involvement in campus activities, but they also brought attention to themselves when they won first place in the Homecom- ing yard display contest for the fourth consecutive year. Among the foundation ' s activities were the Valen- tine ' s Day Chocolate Eating Party. This included blind- folded partners who fried to feed chocolate pudding to each other. They also held a dance for Japanese exchange stu- dents in coordination with local youth groups. Since none of the exchange stu- dents spoke English, they used music to fill the com- munication gap. Other activities included the homemade ice cream welcome party held the night following the first day of fall classes; movies, games, and pizza at the Wesley Foundation follow- ing all home games; a canoe trip; and a student retreat. When it comes to fun, the Cooperative Campus Minis- try, the Episcopal Alterna- tive, and the Wesley Foundation have a lot to offer; more importantly, however, they offer fellow- ship opportunities to every- one involved. riCIPATING IN A PANEL DISCUSSION on Sexuality and less, " Dr. Rod Morgan, director of the Wesley Foundation, joins .buck Lawrence and Ross Hudson in the Performance Center ibruary 28.

The group meets every other Wednes- day " to gain knowledge about the professional field of nursing, " said Sharon Holley, vice president. During the spring semester the members used their health care knowledge to benefit the community by giving blood pressure checks at no charge at Wal- Mart in Florence. The project was so successful that they repeated it in the fall. ANS also sold lightbulbs to raise money for members to attend the National Stu- dent Nurses Association in New Orleans. The Beta Zeta Chapter of Beta Beta Beta, an honor society dedicated to promot- ing biological research, scholarship, and dissemina- tion of scientific knowledge, has the distinction of being the first organization on campus to establish an endowed scholarship fund. The award will go to deserv- ing biology students. Tri-Beta has been involved in several fund- raisers. They sold programs at football games, sold toma- toes that they grew them- selves, and collected alumi- num for recycling. In addition to fundrais- ing, the group also held pic- nics, cook-outs, and attended the national con- vention in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. They also entered their scrapbook in a competition at the Southeastern Regional meeting and won first place. The most significant accomplishment of the Society of Physics Stu- dents in the eyes of presi- dent Robert Reid is " triumph over a lack of interest toward the club. " The SPS was formed to give interested students an " opportunity to increase their knowledge of physics and become directly involved in research in both practical applications of physics and in the real world and some of the more theoretical aspects of physics, " said Reid. The organization made plans to provide tours of prospective employment facilities, to provide a wide range of research opportu- nities, and to install a small computer lab library some- where in Floyd Science Building. The only requirement for membership to the cl whose adviser is Dr. 1 Allison, is an interest physics. The American Chcmi Society is open to any ; dent who shows an inter in chemistry.

Requirements for mem- 1 3rship consists of high aca- 1 2mic academic and moral landards and enthusiasm ! ward the group as a I hole. The purpose of ROTC is to further the profession of officers and to encourage continued involvement in the military. One of the prominent goals of the group has been to make the ROTC more of a force on campus, as well as to become more involved with student life. Though there is not a major offered by the ROTC department, many students take the lower level courses to fulfill basic requirements. Students who plan to have a military career are usually the ones who take upper level courses. Such students have majors that they pursue while they are involved in the ROTC program, and through the ROTC can com- By Leigh Ann Wilson mission into any service. (Most of the students go into the Army.) Upon graduation, a stu- dent can enter the armed forces as a second lieu- tenant working in his major field. The ROTC program offers career versatility for many students. Scabbard and Blade is an interservice fraternity for all branches of service. On campus the group has 45 members. Brotherhood to the frater- nity is initiated by a nomina- tion from a superior cadet. After review of all nomina- tions, selection for invitation into Scabbard and Blade is made by the military science personnel. Initiation into the frater- nity consists of a chase of the pledges by the brothers through the woods and ends with a formal ceremony. According to CPT Clark Boyd, the group ' s main function is to provide " brotherhood of officers within all branches of service. " The president of Scab- bard and Blade, Chuck Braziel, was also initiated into the Lion Battalion, which is the ROTC Corps of Cadets. The group is involved in two functions each year. They held a Military Ball in the spring, open for anyone to attend. Those who attended the ball wore formal attire and enjoyed food, dancing, and a guest speaker. The " Dining In " function is one that was only open to cadets and officers. Dining In is a social gathering that is a tradition with the organization. While social functions are important to the club mem- bers, they felt that it is the club ' s purpose to unite in closer relationship the mili- tary departments of Ameri- can universities and colleges; to preserve and develop the quahties of good and efficient officers; to spread intelligent infor- mation concerning the military requirements of our country; and to support non- profit organizations.

The dub exists to provide career development oppor- tunities in accounting. Its purpose is to promote professional interest and growth through study, lec- tures, and member discus- sion of recent trends and policies in practical accounting. The club expands its members ' accounting knowledge through lectures, plant tours, and field trips. The most important aspect of the organization is to provide career opportuni- ties in NAA (the National Association of Accoun- tants). An important goal is to get members acquainted with future employers. " We have a lot of local business people who origi- nated in the field job place- ment through Alpha Chi, " said Lorraine Glasscock, Alpha Chi adviser. The club participates in several activities. At the end of the year they have their annual awards banquet. In November, the club took a trip to Montgomery to the Jackson Thornton accounting firm. The mem- bers were able to tour the operation and then tour a couple of their clients ' oper- ations. The Jackson Thorn- ton firm is one of the largest in Alabama. Alpha Chi also does volunteer work. They are involved in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Pro- gram. This is done with the IRS at local malls. " Alpha Chi is a good way to get involved with other people in your own major, " said Johnny Simpson. The Computer Science Club consists of 15 active members. Any person who is interested in computers may become a member. Members meet twice a month in the Mathematics Building, Room 4. During the fall semester the Computer Science Club had several guest speakers, including one from Hunts- ville who works for IBM. He spoke to the members about " computer scientists in the real world. " Beverly Cheney, director of Placement on campus, spoke to the club on " How to Get a Job. " She told the members about the tech- niques and tactics used in order to get the job place- ment that would best suit them and their needs. The Computer Science Club ' s goals for this year were to work closely with the Computer Information Systems organization and have cooperation and a sharing of information between the two groups. Dr. Oscar Beck is the club ' s adviser. The purpose of the Com- puter Information Sys- tems Club (CIS) is to " provide opportunities for members to gain insight into the area as a professional and to provide information about employment opportu- nities, " said Bill White, CIS member. Any student who is interested in the field of computer informations sys- tems can become a member of CIS. According to White, the goals for the CIS club are to " increase club membership and increase charitable activities. " Some of the club ' s activi- ties for the fall included a trip to Montgomery, where club members were able to see the Super-Computer; a visit to Martin Industries in Florence; and the sponsor- ing of guest speakers. CIS has been CIS DPMA (Data Processing Manage- ment Association) for the past couple of years. DPMA is the largest organization representing information management professionals. In November, the mem- bers participated in the Data Processing Management Association Regional Con- ference in Birmingham. The CIS club presented two $100 scholarships to club members. Phi Beta Lambda is a non-profit education associ- ation made up of students pursuing careers in busi- ness or business education. Phi Beta Lambda is a national professional frater- nity whose general purpose is to encourage and assist the development of students who intend to make a career in the many areas of busi- ness. Its purpose is to bring business and education together in a positive work- ing relationship. The national organization offers programs and serv- ices that create a forum in which students, educators, and business people learn about one another. Membership is open to interested business students. ALPHA cm— Front Row: Lorraine Glasscock, Hill White, Kristal L. Collum, Ann Muse, Michelle Melson, Nicole Corfman, Sena Powers, Mike Brand.

In order to become a ember of Beta Beta, a stu- nt must major or minor in nme economics and must ive completed one mester at the university d eight hours of home onomics courses. A 2.0 in me economics as well as ) overall GPA (on a 3.0 lie) is also a requirement ' membership. Beta Beta meets the :ond Tuesday of each nth at the home eco- mics department Living nter in Floyd Science ilding. Beta Beta is under the visement of Dr. Jean nn. Its officers are iphanie Blakely, presi- it; Angela Hollimon, vice isident; and Glenna son, secretary. During the spring Inester, Beta Beta held lular programs each nth, a regional meeting, 1 a recognition dinner in rtl. This fall, the club organized a Club Kick-Off Dinner for the new semester for the Department of Home Economics. Beta Beta was also responsible for a skit on club membership. The club hosted the Region VI, East meeting in April. The program empha- sis was a workshop follow- ing the 1987-89 program of work, Commitment to Writ- ing. The meeting was attended by 25 people from five universities from Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. The club ' s most signifi- cant achievement for this year is its programs emphasizing Ethical Dimen- sions of the Scholar. Providing opportunities for members to help individuals and families maintain a meaningful qual- ity of life is the most impor- tant aspect of the Student Home Economics Associ- ation, better known as SHEA. Any student with a major or minor in home eco- nomics may join SHEA, which has 25 members. The purpose of SHEA is to pro- vide opportunities for developing home eco- nomics leadership among members, as well as provid- ing experiences to increase mutual understanding among people of all cultures. Being familiar with the history, the current trends and the future of home eco- nomics and AHEIA is also an important purpose of SHEA. SHEA ' S goals for this year include identifying and communicating home eco- nomics as a positive force in society, exploring career opportunities and promot- ing knowledge of home eco- nomics, developing professional educational interests which lead to active membership at the state and national level, and providing opportunities to meet people who have attained recognition in the profession. The club considers its most significant achieve- ment to be the professional development of each member. SHEA has had many accomplishments such as assisting the Department of Home Economics faculty members with student recruiting by helping with High School Career Day held on campus, providing learning activities and room decorations for four- and five-year-old children at a local mental health facility, and providing programs to help members become more familiar with local organizations that help individuals and families. This spring, SHEA attended the Alabama Home Economics Association meeting in Birmingham. The members met and inter- acted with professionals from across the state. This fall, SHEA attended the Student Leadership Conference at Samford University. The conference included a tour of the new facilities of Southern LMng. The club also assisted with a departmental activity for new students in home eco- nomics, and asked various professionals to speak at their local meetings. The executive council for SHEA meets at least once a month. Regular club meet- ings are held each month. SHEA is under the advisement of Dr. Kay Abbott, head of the Depart- ment of Home Economics. Its officers include Deidra Cummings, president; Melissa Flanagan, vice president; Angela Hollimon, secretary; Robert Burton, treasurer; Kristi Bennett, historian; Cheryl Collier, reporter; and Cindy Coan, parlimentarian. Any student interested in fashion or interior design is eligible to become a member of The Fashion Forum. The purpose of the club is to broaden students ' knowledge of interiors and fashion careers, to promote scholarship and to get better acquainted with other home economics majors.

Members of the Players helped with theatri- cal productions by acting in them, working backstage, and helping with the public- ity. They also serve as ushers for some of the productions. The Players present several dramatic productions each year. The University Players serves as a common ground of communication between Tau Epsilon Kappa, the technical theatre society, and Alpha Psi Omega, the theatrical honor society. Alpha Psi Omega, under the advisement of Jim Davis, is an honor society for mem- bers of the University Players who show special interest and ability in dra- matics. The honor group provides cast members for the spring and fall plays. According to Robert Allen Holder, assistant professor in the Department of Communication and Theatre, a student has to be in a certain number of plays before he can qualify for membership in Alpha Psi Omega. One has to be invited in order to become a member. Tau Epsilon Kappa is the honor society for technical theatre. The purposes of the organization are to recog- nize outstanding student participation in technical theatre, to provide crew members for plays and to handle the technical aspects of the productions. With Jim Davis as adviser, Tau Epsilon Kappa seeks to develop interest, skills and artistic abilities in the fields of theatre technol- ogy above and beyond regu- lar academic courses.

Organiza- tions within the dorms, such as the hall councils, try to make living away from home more tolerable. " When I first arrived on campus, I didn ' t know many people. I wasn ' t completely sure that I would like resi- dence hall life, but I know I ' ve realized how much like a big family it really is, " said Christy Nicholson, a transfer student. " Whenever I need anything I know that I can just go next door and borrow it. " Promoting unity by offer- ing more opportunities in hall activities and leader- ship is the purpose of the Rice Hall CouncU. The 20 active members of the coun- cil try to include all resi- dents in campus life, particularly recreationcil and social functions. The group was involved in Casino Night held in the winter for all resident stu- dents. The annual Tie-Dye Party, Valentines Day Ban- quet and Spring Luau were also major social functions. During the fall, the group was involved with Festiver- sity to benefit the United Way. Rice Hall also promoted a " South of the Border " Mexican theme party, a Homecoming lawn party, a Balloon Auction for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Custodian Appreciation Day, and Food For Finals, according to Abbe Fine, hall president. The Rivers Hall Council also helped make dorm life easier for its residents by promoting unity within Rivers Hall and by offering more opportunities for resi- dent participation in activities. Rivers Hall sponsored movie parties. Whodunit? Mystery Murders, and Food For Finals in the spring. Fall activities included a Sep- tember dance. Haunted House, Casino Night, a Christmas dinner and dance, and Food for Finals, according to Jeff Ferren, the group ' s secretary treasurer. All residents of Rivers Hall are members of the group. The Hall is divided into four houses consisting of two floors per house. Each house elects a presi- dent and vice president, an activities chairman and a quiet house chairman. Rivers Hall plans to get their own mailbox and four stamp machines this year. LaGrange Hall Coun- cil ' s purpose is to deal with matters of mutual interest to LaGrange Hall residents. The council is responsible for reviewing LaGrange and university policy. They also review and establish rules and regulations for LaGrange Hall, subject to the approval of the Office of Student Affairs. Many college students are fresh out of high school and live in the residence halls or just a block or two from campus. There are others, however, who were not able to attend college directly after high school or who were not able to finish college. Still other students have to commute to school every- day. There are two organiza- tions on campus for people like these: the Re-entering Students Association (RESA) and the Commuters Organization. The Commuters Organization is for stu- dents who have to drive a five-mile or greater distance each day to get to campus. Other requirements for membership are to pay dues and to attend the randomly scheduled meetings. Adviser Kim Mauldin said that the Commuters ' purpose is to serve as a " channel of communication to commuters, " and it is also for social purposes. The most important aspect of the organization is to provide a place for commuters to go between classes. Mauldin said that the Commuters hope to increase membership and awareness of the organiza- tion in the future. They have conducted the penny drop for the Spring Fling Queen as a way of drawing atten- tion to their club and have also held a Christmas Open House so that all faculty and students can see for them- selves what the Commuters Organization is all about. The Commuters have been working on a few projects over the months. They have reorganized their lounge in Guillot University Center and have been trying to find a more appealing name for the club. They feel the name change might help attract more members, and if so, they will have two goals accomplished at once. About 50 students make up the Re-entering Stu- dents Association (RESA). The dues-paying members are made up of students who are 25 yea old or older and who nee an organization devoted r their problems an concerns. RESA program directi Jean Ann Lawrence sai that most of the membei have families, and they joi the club to meet others wh share their problems.

The student newspaper is produced during long hours of work by a staff of student editors, writers, pho- tographers and business personnel. At the helm of the student staff is Linda East, executive editor. Associate editors Leah Holt and Wendy Reeves help with editing and pasteup, and sports editor Jeff Dickinson covers Lion athletics. A volunteer staff of reporters covers the campus to meet that Monday dead- line, and student pho- tographers (pciid, intern and volunteer) work to capture it all on film. But in order to pay the bills to print the paper, the newspaper has to have revenue. That ' s where Dan Reynolds, business manager, comes in. Rey- nolds sell advertisers space in the campus newspaper; Sally Harriss, ad artist, does the layout for the ads. The staff works closely with the members of the university publications office: Mary Beth Eck, direc- tor of publications; Donna Butler, secretary and type- setter; Karen Hodges, pub- lications assistant; and Brenda (B.J.) Hill, student publications adviser. By A.C. Burleson But the focus is on stu- dent participation, and coor- dinating the work of all those people is a big job — one that East relishes. " Some weeks I think we ' re never going to get finished — like the time we extended our deadline to cover a late-breaking story and the typesetter went on the bhnk. " Mary Beth was on the phone to a service represen- tative in North Carolina trying to get some help. (Apparently repairmen keep bankers ' hours.) Leah, Karen, BJ. and I were all peering into the guts of our poor HAL wondering what to do next, " East said. The five women managed to put the machine back together, but they never were able to fix it. A repairman had to come the next day to deal with the problem. In the meantime, East took the pasteups to the printer and had the typeset- ter there finish the copy. The Flor-Ala was on campus the next morning, on time. Members of the Diorama staff also use teamwork to get the job done. The yearbook covers life at the university from Febru- ary to February. It ' s a huge undertaking, and one that executive editor Michele Anders said would be impossible without the help of the yearbook staff. " Although Anissa [Palmer, associate editor] and I wind up doing more of the work than we should, we depend very much on the student writers and pho- tographers to help. I can ' t imagine where we ' d be without the staff to help with copy and photos, " said Anders. All type for the yearbook is set on the computerized equipment in the Pubhca- tions Office. " It ' s really so much easier that way, " said Anders. " We know exactly what our copy will look like in the book — including headlines — when we send it to the printer. We don ' t have to do much guesswork as far as copyfitting is concerned. " The staff is composed of a cross section of different majors and interests. " Each staffer brings in his her own unique quaities and attitudes to help develop a well-rounded yearbook that doesn ' t focus on one issue or interest, " said Anders. Longs hours and diligent work with little recognition are involved with the process of putting together the yearbook. SCJ— B.J. HUl, Karen Kimbrell, Linda East.

" It ' s really a shame that we don ' t have more mem- bers right now, " said Hill. " SCJ is the national honor society for student mass media, and it is really quite a privilege to be initiated.

' T UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT Dr. Robert M. GuiUot and Mrs. GuiUot Watching the Changes Dr. Guillot has seen the campus change during his 17 year tenure IliillH By Anissa Palmer i | The university has changed over the years, and President Robert M. Guillot has seen many of these changes. The campus has changed in many ways that are visible and in ways that are not as obvious, and Dr. Guillot ' s job has also changed. " When I came here in 1972, the college was still known as Florence State University. It had approximately three thousand stu- dents. From the academic standpoint, the university only had divi- sions and departments, " said Guillot. At that time, there was a School of Education, a School of Business, and a School of Arts and Sciences. In 1973, the School of Nursing was estabhshed, and the first nurses graduated in 1976. Guillot said that the university has broa- dened over the years. It is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges, and the Schools of Nursing, Education, and Arts and Sciences are also now nationally accredited. There has been a Small Business Develop- ment Center organized, and a new program in Industrial Hygiene is now offered. " The academic programs have been updated, " said Guillot, " but we still only offer a baccalaureate degree in nursing. " The physical aspects of the university have changed, also. The School of Business was moved from Wesleyan to Keller. Guillot said, " Both Wesleyan and Keller have been renovated, too. " The university has also seen the complete renovations of Floyd Hall and the Communication Building, which was once known as the Media Center. In the early 1980s, Flowers Hall received an addition. Over the years, the Education-Nursing Building (recently named Stevens Hall) was built, along with Collier Library. " The old library was changed to the computer center after Collier was built, " said Guillot. " We have one of the finest libraries which is com- pletely automated. " Other changes include the renovation of Bibb Graves and the construction of Braly " 1 enjoy seeing students graduate and seeing them achieve success. " Municipal Stadium. The baseball facilitie were upgraded, and Flowers Hall receive individual seats and a scoreboard. Powei Hall was remodeled for the use of the Pai hellenic group, and an active alumni offic was also set up to work with alumni and staf A very vital change which was made was th completion of the university center, whic was named after Dr. Guillot himself. " It serves the needs of the studenli faculty, staff, an alumni, " said Guillot. While the campus wa changing, the needs c the handicapped wer not ignored. Many buik ings, such as Wesleya and Floyd halls, have eh vators to transport th handicapped to higher floors. Bibb Grave and Collier Library have wheelchair Ufts t carry the handicapped up the stairs. Other changes have not been as obviou! " There has been a tremendous expansion c budget, " said Guillot. The budget expande from approximately three million dollars year to the current amount of twenty millio dollars a year. The increase in budget i " mostly because of the increase in students, said Guillot. While the budget is large, Guillot also sai that the tuition is lower than that of most stat universities. The money is mostly used t benefit students directly. ' This school spend a large amount on academics and academi services, " said Guillot. The university could not change througl out the years with Dr. Guillot ' s job as pres dent also experiencing changes. Guillc summarized the changes: " With an increas in faculty, staff, and students, I have mor calls on my time, more federal and stat agencies to deal with, and more demand from the community than ever before. My jol takes more of my time, but it is all a lot o fun. I enjoy seeing students graduate am seeing them achieve success. " Change is an essential part of growth, am the university has certainly grown, along witl President Guillot ' s responsibihties. 228 AT THE SUMMER RECEPTION for Col.

(Photo by Brigitte Borden) A Watchful Eye The Board of Trustees is responsible for many decisions affecting the university By Anissa Palmer Democracy is a part of the American way of life. One aspect of democracy is the checks-and-balances system, and while government uses this system, the university does, also. The university ' s Board of Trustees, composed of 12 members, utilizes such a system to be sure that no single person or group has a monopoly of power. The president ex-officio of the Board of Trustees is Governor Guy Hunt. He presides over the meetings and appoints the other 11 board members. The Senate approves Hunt ' s nominees before they actually become members. The board is only required to meet annu- ally to discuss plans and decisions concern- ing the university; how ever, because of the controversies involving administration, it was forced to meet more often than usual during the year. Besides Dean Daniel Leasure ' s termina- tion and President Robert M. Guillot ' s resig- nation, the board had other points of business. In the spring, members held a meeting during which they increased the undergraduate, graduate, non-resident, resi- dence hall, married student housing, student meal plan, and undergraduate special course fees. They also discussed the name change of the Education-Nursing Building 1 The president ex-officIo of the Board of Trustees is Governor Guy Hunt. to Roy S. Stevens Hall. The annual summer meeting of the boa; also brought its own topics for discussio The board recognized Mr. and Mrs. E. Culver for their one million dollar trust fur to be used for scholarship purposes, and th( also recognized Mrs. Jean Paxton Rogers fi her $ 15,000 gift t o the T.M. Rogers endowf scholarship fund. During the summer meeting, the boat continued its business it approved the budgi for the 1989-90 ac. demic year and tb university policy on AID and AIDS related cond tions. The board als removed the Masters i Fine Arts and Creativ Writing as terminal degrees for pay an promotional purposes. The fall was a season for board meeting: Various subjects were discussed at eac meeting, but there were a few very prominei ones. With increased fall enrollment, th parking situation worsened, causing mor talk of a parking deck. The board made proposal for a parking deck to be built. Th board discussed usual business, also, as increased the comprehensive fee and olhe fees for the 1990-91 academic year. Later meetings were held in the fall, wit campus controversies as the primary topic: (Continued on next page 230 THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES was the subject of much media coverage during the year.

(Photo by Brigitte Borden) North Alabama Interim President Named The Board of Trustees named Robert L. Potts interim president after Dr. Robert M. Guillot announced his retirement. Potts will assume all duties and respon- sibilities of the president of the university until a permanent president can be found. He resigned his position of General Coun- sel at the University of Al2ibama system and dropped out of the Supreme Court race upon accepting the position of interim president. He said that, although he fully supported a nationwide, equal-opportunity search for a permanent president, he would distance tiimself from it in order to serve effectively as interim president. Potts said he is " interested " in the per- nnanent presidency position but would not inake the decision of whether to allow his tame to be placed in nomination until ipring. " We ' ve got too many immediate things; hat decision won ' t have to be made until spring, probably, and I ' ll have no commit- Tient from the Board that I will be the per- nanent president, " he said. " I was called in o do a specific job because I hopefully possess those characteristics that would be helpful at this particular time. " Potts graduated from Coffee High School and attended college at Newbold College in England. He received a B.A. cum laude from Southern Missionary College in CoUegedale, Tenn. He studied law at the University of Alabama, receiving a Juris Doctor (JD.) degree in 1969, where he graduated third in his class. Following a judicial clerkship, he received a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree from Har- vard University in 1971. Potts has taught courses at Boston Univer- sity and the University of Alabama as well as UNA, and has served on the Board of Trustees at Alabama State in Montgomery and Oakwood College in Huntsville. He served as the attorney for UNA from 1973 through 1983 while he was a partner in the law firm of Potts and Young in Florence. Potts and his wife Patty have a son and a daughter.

He will leave as the executive ce president. Over the years, Dr. Stevens played a vital )le in the growth of the campus. He stimu- ted the growth of UNA irough projects of reno- ition and construction; le most recent achieve- lent has been the Robert . Guillot University enter.

This eluded being in charge of: financial affairs, e planning of various construction projects, the provision of support for financial aid, and the security office. Dr. Stevens believes UNA to be a good undergraduate university which offers the student more opportunity. " The university is student-oriented, " he said. Stevens said that over the years he had worked with a " great group of people, and the student body has been among the best — disciplined and attractive — of a univer- sity of this size. " Dr. Stevens has suc- cessfully encouraged the growth of the student body and left us with a lasting impression of his leadership.

The Turris Fidelis Award is made on the basis of outstanding service to the university and scholas- tic achievement and may be awarded to not more than two graduating seniors at spring commencement. (Photo by Jana Stout) By Janet Wallace Dr. Joseph C. Thomas, dean of Faculty and Instruction, beheves that quahty education should be the number one goal of everyone at the university. " Basically, the goals we have are to pro- vide quahty education, both in the regular classrooms and in non-traditional settings. That means keeping class sizes small and hiring outstanding faculty who have an interest in teaching as well as in research. Another area that we are concerned with is recruit- ment of excellent stu- dents, " said Thomas. Thomas said that the university is expecting a small rise in student enrollment over the next year. " Enrollment has been down for the past few years due to the fact that there has been a smaller pool of students. We are anticipat- ing a small increase in enrollment next year due to more transfer students and more recruitment, " Thomas said. The university is making two important changes that will help maintain the quality of education. The UNACAT system at Collier Library was put into effect recently and the grading system is being changed to a four point scale. Thomas said that the new four point grad- ing system will definitely take some getting used to. " Moving to a four point grading system will bring us into line with other universities that have a four point system. The new stu- dents enrolling this fall will be on the new system. We ' ve known we were going into the four point system for a while, but it was approved last spring. It will take some time to get the system completely worked in, " said Thomas. Thomas said that a lot of academic activi- ties will be taking place in the coming year. The university will be working to meet accreditation standards. " We ' re getting ready to start the process for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to be here. That will be a 10-year self study which will lead to the reaffirmation of accreditation for the whole university. Also, the School of Nursing and the School of Edu- cation both have an evaluation and reaccredi- tation coming up, " said Thomas. Thomas also said that during the past year, the Department of Art received an ac- creditation. UNA ' S Department of Art was one out of four departments in the United States to receive an accreditation. Besides being in charge of the four aca- " I ' ve always wanted to be a teacher.

The faculty also have researcl going on that is viewed nationwide, " saii Thomas. Thomas is also involved in several coir munity projects.

He is originally fron Indiana but he received his education in Ken tucky. He earned his undergraduate degree from Asbury College and his masters an doctorate from the University of Kentucky " I ' ve always wanted to be a teacher. Ever in high school I wanted to teach. I went tc college with the idea of being a teacher Since then, I ' ve taught at all levels, " Thomas said. Thomas began teaching at a high schoo associated with the University of Kentuckj and then moved on to the public count school system in Kentucky. He was a visit ing professor at the University of Kentucky and then he taught at Asbury College. Thomas taught chemistry and physical science at UNA and served as head of what was known as the science department. He became associate dean of Arts and Sciences and then the dean of Arts and Sciences. For the past two and one-half years, he has served as dean of Faculty and Instruction. Thomas has been at UNA for 28 years. AFTER SPRING COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES, Dean Thomas congratulates Keller Key winner Belinda Haddock and Turris Fidelis winners Polly Gartman and Ladd Van Devender.

Moore has a green and white 1955 Chevrolet and a 1965 pickup truck that he enjoys tinkering with at times. Moore said that by no means is he an expert on antique automobiles. " I don ' t go to antique car shows or any- thing like that. I have enough trouble keeping them running, " Moore said. Moore said that he never actually set out to collect the antique vehicles. " I just happened to come across them. I use the ' 65 pickup as a work truck. I also have a 1977 Scirocco. I just keep them around because I can ' t bear to give them up, " Moore said. Moore also likes to " dabble " with garden- ing. He has a small farm in Winston County and has a garden at his home. " I don ' t get to the farm in Winston County very often because it ' s so far away. I do most " I don ' t go to antique car shows or anything like that.

(Photo byjana Stout) Stan Hatfield, a new geology instructor, said he admires " challenged " students and profes- sionals who must reveal daily determination to ov ercome mental and physical obstacles. " There are very few professions that would exclude challenged people, " Hatfield sciid. " Blind people can teach, but there are parts of geology that would be very, very difficult for blind students. " Hatfield said he advises all disabled students to make their professors aware of their disabili- ties and their special needs. " Overall the university faculty and students have treated me well, " Hatfield said. " There have been isolated complaints from students that I am a little tough. I take that as a mirror of my per- formance. " Hatfield said he accepted a teaching position at this university because he liked the size of the campus and the personal atmosphere. " When I interviewed for a job here teaching was stressed, " Hatfield explained. " I like the fact that teaching is stressed above research. " Hatfield said he appreciated the dedication of his high school geology teacher, Paul Winters, who first encouraged Hatfield ' s interest in teach- ing and in geology. " Mr. Winters was very intelligent, energetic, eccentric, and he was a former hippie with shoulder-length hair, " Hatfield said. " He was a free spirit. Above eill, he was a dedicated teacher. " Hatfield mentioned his pleasure in having the opportunity to interact with students severd times each week. He said this interaction is what he likes best about the university. Hatfield said he enjoys the friendly people in northwest Alabama as well as opportunities to camp, visit scenic parks, and read historic novels. Hatfield explained how he enjoys the challenge of preparing his students for the real world, including life after UNA. " I encourage questions from my students which helps them make informed decisions, " Hat- field said. " I would like for them to think for themselves.

A professional team from throughout the state, approximately 13 individuals, will be here. They ' ll look at everything from our general education pro- grams to subject area fields and professional education. They will also be looking at the quality of our faculty and adherance to state guidelines, " Hattabaugh said. There are also two more departments in the School of Education that will be busy. " In addition to the reviewing, the home economics department will be continuing to work on criteria to make them ehgible for accreditation. Also, Kilby, the professional development school, will be preparing for a self-study that takes place every 10 years, " Hattabaugh said. Hattabaugh has two personal goeils as part of the evaluation. " My first personal goal is to become more " My second goal is to reacquaint myself with the realities of the public school classroom ... " familiar with operating the computer so ware that we have available in the Comput Developmental Laboratory in Stevens Ha My second goal will be to reacquaint mys( with the realities of the public school clas room by actually doing some teaching in tl pubhc classroom, " Hattabaugh said. There has also been a raising of standan in the School of Education. " We ' ve had a dramatic increase in tl enrollment in the Scho of Education. At the san time, we ' ve raised oi standards a good bit. V now require that our st dents keep a 2.5 GPA c a 4.0 scale to even 1: admitted to teacher ed cation, " Hattabaugh sai Hattabaugh spenc most of his spare time working with the Be Scouts, church, the United Way, and coacl ing little league baseball teams. His family very involved in education. " My wife is a primary school teacher. N. oldest daughter is an elementary educatic major. My youngest daughter is coming hei in 1990. My oldest son is in seminary — he going to be a minister. My youngest child just 12, so we have some time to find oi what he ' s going to be, " Hattabaugh said. Hattabaugh has taught at all levels, froi nursery school to graduate school. He saj that his all-time favorites are eight and nir year olds. Hattabaugh said, " They are able to fun tion very intellectually at that level, but th( still look up to aduhs so much. " Man of Firsts DR. WILLIAM GLIDEWELL joine d the faculty at the university in 1965. After more than 24 years of service to the univer- sity, professor of health and physical education Dr. Wil- liam F. Glidewell is retiring to travel and visit friends like novelist Larry King. Glidewell, a native of Birmingham, plans to spend some time on the Hollywood backlots in the next year during the filming of King ' s play The Night Hank Wil- liams Died. They hope to go to Africa together in April. They met while both were attending Texas Techno- logical College. The friendship developed when both wrote for the Midland (Texas) Reporter Telegram. That friendship enabled Glidewell to get King to UNA in the early ' 80s for the first Writers Conference set up by assistant professor of journalism Bobbie Hurt. Dr. Glidewell has been involved in other firsts at the university. He has organized and directed many clinics, such as weightlifting and athletics with Dr. Terry Todd, a former world record holder; gymnastics with Dr. Bill Crenshaw and Fred Martinez, of the Nissan Company, athletic training and conditioning with Jim Goosetree, of the University of Alabama; and basketball for women and power voUeybcill for women. The latter resulted in the first women ' s volleyball team at then Florence State University. In 1970, he was retained by the Shoals Area court systems to develop a DWI (driving while intoxicated) Clinic, which was the second such one in the state. He directed it for 1 1 years, giving up the reins two years ago. More than 15,000 went through that program during his tenure. Dr. Glidewell produced two shows for television ' last year on research and the human performance lab. He wrote a one-hour show for WOWL-TV concerning the DWI program. He will not leave the university entirely with his retire- ment. He plans to continue working with the Lions tennis team on a cardiovascular fitness program. By Cynthia Harris 240 DEAN JACK H.

Dean Conwill ' s office is in Keller Hall. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) Christmas in July The Conwill family enjoys a different holiday season By Janet Wallace Dean Lawrence Conwill is probably the only faculty member at the university who celebrates Christmas in the summer. " We have a family reunion each summer. We draw names and give each other gifts in the summertime. We decorate a Christmas tree with sand pails and toys instead of Christmas ornaments, " Conwill said. The summer Christmas celebration started when one of Conwill ' s family mem- bers suggested that rather than mail gifts at Christmas, it would be more fun to exchange them together. The tradi- tion grew into a full- fledged celebration. " The kids really enjoy it. They get to have Christmas twice each year, " Conwill said. Conwill also incorporates a special hobby of his into the Christmas-in-summer celebra- tion. He is a wood craftsman. " I ' m a woodworker. My nieces and nephews get wooden toys each ' Christmas. ' I made rocking horses for them this year, " Conwill said. Conwill also gives small wooden toys at Halloween instead of candy. Conwill is an avid gardener. Although he doesn ' t garden out of necessity, he grows a rather large garden. " I have all sorts of things in my garden. I used to garden because, with kids, we needed the extra food. Now, with just my wife and me, we don ' t really need so much. But I garden as much as ever, " Conwill said. Conwill came to UNA in 1958, and has been here ever since. " I came out of the service from Korea. I served in the Army during the Korean con- flict. Then I worked for a year and one half " We decorate a Christmas tree with sandpails and toys. . . " as a public accountant, " Conwill said. After working as an accountant, Conwi started back to school to further his educ. tion. He began teaching at Itawamba Junic College and taught there for two years. The he taught at Delta State College for two year " I ' m almost sorry to admit it, but if I cam here in 1958, and this is 1989, I ' ve bee here 3 1 years! Both of my kids were raise here and went to school here. I came her to what was known a Florence State CoUeg and been here eve since. I found my home, Conwill said. Of his time in Kore; Conwill said, " Folk • • don ' t believe it, but Kore was a fantasti experience for me. It taught me a lot c things, but especially to appreciate life more Korea is fairly modern now, but at that tim it was very underdeveloped. I couldn ' t hel] but think, but for the grace of God, I ' m ai American. " Conwill has another interesting hobby. H is an amateur writer. He keeps a book tha is full of anecdotes, letters, and politica spoofs. " I used to tell my kids about the depres sion. One of them said I ought to write al those stories down because we might forge them, so I did, " Conwill said. Most people would wonder how Deai Conwill has time to fit so much life into life Most would say they could never do all tha and their job, too. But Conwill says his hoh bies help his career. " I feel like you can do a much better jol in what you do for a living if you have lot of other interests. That ' s why I do all thi things I enjoy doing, " Conwill said. lfrf»-.- -! TW FACULTY DR M.

" Over the years, the image of the hbrary ind the librarian has changed. I think we ' ve jotten over the matronly " shh " image, and he exciting thing has been to see how library services have changed and are changing, ind to be a part of it. We could only have hanged so rapidly because of a good qual- ty staff, " Warren said. According to Warren, omputers are behind a ot of the changes in the ibrary. " Computers have nfluenced society. The ibrary is using com- [)uters to the best advan- age. It ' s good to see the library reflect the nany changes in society, " Warren said. Information is also an important aspect in tie library ' s changes, said Warren. " Efficient use of the library is important Dr college students and graduates to master, ou have to know how to get good informa- on in the society in which we live, " Warren aid. Some examples of the computers effect on ie library and information sources are the ard catalog, the reader ' s guide, the social cience index , and ERIC. They are all being laced on computer discs and are going to ersonal computers. " Responses to these changes in the library services have been positive. The students and faculty have moved to the changes easily, " Warren said. Dean Warren is especially proud of UNA ' s new card catalog system, UNACAT. " The paper card catalog system has been changed to an on-line system which means that students and faculty use a terminal rather than the paper cards. The catalog is available to students more quickly. The system has taken a lot of trial and error out of using the library. We named the system UNACAT to reflect on the university. One good thing is that you don ' t have to be in the library to use the catalog. We have the system in the offices of the deans of the university. As a personal goal, I would like to see terminals expanded to other faculty offices, " Warren said. Warren has been dean of Library Services since August of 1987. He was director of Library Services at Fort Hayes State Univer- sity in Kansas before coming to UNA. He received his undergraduate degree at Murray State in Murray, Kentucky, and received his masters and doctorate at Florida State. Before his stay at Fort Hayes State, he worked in libraries in Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida.

After graduation from UNA in 1982, Hodges began working for his alma mater the following year. He had previously worked as 1 sportswriter for the TimesDaily. Hodges said that he likes working in this area mainly due to the size of the own and the school. Working as a sports nformation director may seem like an easy job, |)ut Hodges has many ! esponsibilities through- Dut the school year. His main objective is to pro- mote the university through the athletic lepartment. This is accomplished in part by )ublicizing individual students and their iccomplishments. Hodges not only handles the statistics and )ublications for all of the university ' s sports, )ut works with television stations and lewspapers by getting them to run whatever hey can on the university sports. This may seem like a dream come true for " If you can make a living watching ball games, you can ' t beat that. " the avid sports fan, but the job can have its disadvantages. Long hours are not only common, but a rule of thumb for Hodges. He must work late hours, especially during the fall. During the summer he works preparing brochures for the coming year. The job is also not without its hazards. Hodges recalled a time at a Delta State game: he was in the pressbox when a tornado warning was issued. The stands were cleared, but the game continued! Since his job entails reporting sports coverage, Hodges had to sit in the pressbox and watch the football game knowing that there were tornadoes sighted in the area. Luckily, the game was delayed. He later found out that three tor- nadoes were witnessed in the area. When asked if there was anything about the university that Hodges would like to see changed, he said, " I would like to see more student involvement in supporting athletic events. " Hodges ' job isn ' t easy, but he finds dehght in it. " If you can make a living watching ball- games, you can ' t beat that, " he said.

" If we had not won le conference, we, )uld not have hosted the tournament. It as outstanding. There were over 2,000 2ople attending every game, " said Lane. According to Coach Lane, it was the first time that UNA had hosted the regional tournament. Though the season had a nice ending, there were times in the beginning that almost ruined the team. Three key recruits were lost in the fall, and the team dis- played many young, inexperienced players. " Many hours of practice, lots of hcird [work, and an inner spirit made this team competitive, " said Lane. Other factors that helped the team to the conference championship included the individucil performances of several players.

UNA, but the Lady Lions softball tecim often couldn ' t find the grip in the field as it finished 17-14 overall and fourth in the Gulf South Conference. Having won the GSC fast- pitch crown in 1986 and 1987, UNA had one of its most powerful lineups in 1989 as the Lady Lions posted a team batting average of .312 to finish 10th nationally among NCAA Division n schools. UNA was also ranked 14th nationdly in runs scored by game at 5.58. Combine those states with a 1.43 team earned run average and UNA would seem 1 unbeatable. But with 66 fielding errors, the . Lady Lions proved to be their own worst enemy, allowing an average of more than two unearned runs per game. It was an up-and-down seeison with win- ning streaks of five and six games placed around losing skids. But in the end it was a fourth place finish in the GSC Tourna- ment, although below standards set by past Lady Lion clubs, that clinched the GSC Women ' s All-Sports Trophy for UNA — maintaining the Lady Lions ' reign over the league ' s women ' s sports. .State DOWN In the GSC Tournament UNA downed West Georgia 13-0, dropped a close one to Livingston 4-3, then whipped Troy and Delta State before being elimi- nated by Tennessee-Martin. Monica Moran fired a five-hitter at the Lady Pacers in the losing effort. Senior pitcher Michele Logan of kPleasant Grove and junior catcher my Watkins of Decatur were named All-GSC, with Watkins placing fifth in the nation in hitting and 12 th in triples with five. Watkins, Logan and senior Lori Stock- sett of St. Paul, Minn., were also named Academic All-GSC Selections. UNA opened the season by dropping a 7-4 decision to eventual GSC champion Livingston, then fell 2-0 to Tennessee- Martin. But the next outing proved more successful cis UNA edged rivaJ Jacksonville State 1-0 behind the one-hit pitching of senior Michele Logan.

" Considering the fact that we had so many new people it basically was not a bad year, " said Head Coach Larry Thompson. Only four returning members of the previous squad remained for Coach Thompson, but the new players performed well enough to make up for the losses. The newness, however, caused problems early as the team dropped four of its first five matches. OOD " Our inability to play consis- tently as a team early in the season was a drawback. We couldn ' t get everyone clicking on the same cylinder, " said Thompson. A third place finish in the Gulf South Conference gave the team something to build on and proved that they could be competitive with almost anyone. The strong season and excellent players returning presented Thompson with a good foundation and something to look forward to next year. " We were not disappointed with last season. Due to the performance, it gives us hope for the future, " said Thompson. By Scott Cecil ANDY KNIGHT rips a two-hand backhand return.

According to head coach Brice Bishop, the season got off to a bad start and never really picked up. " We had a few injuries that set us back. Sherry Kennemer broke her arm and missed the first two months of the season, " said Bishop. " Unfortunately, she never really reached her potential. " Another problem that plagued the team all season was the weather. Rain poured down so much that some matches had to be eliminated from the schedule. " We had eleven rained out matches. When we rescheduled some of them it rained again and we had to cancel the makeups. Some of the matches were never made up, " said Bishop. Despite the bad luck encountered during the season, several bright spots emerged from the gloom. Besides the second place conference finish, five of the nine team positions advanced to the fmeils of the Gulf South Tournament, and fresh- man Yvette Butler received the Gulf South Conference Sportsmanship Award.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) 268 A new conference ruling forced the " A men ' s and women ' s cross luntry teams to set ftier goals for the )89 season. The ruling states that no con- rence championship will be varded in any sport which les not have at least six inference members com- iting. Therefore, with ily four men ' s teams id three women ' s ams competing, ere was no GSC lampionship this ar. The inspiration for the entire season IS winning the NCAA South Regional set. Prior to the season, UNA Coach Brice shop said, " We must set other goals and to set the best record of any cross coun- team at UNA and win as many meets we can. " Both the men and women fielded strong ims at the beginning of the season. Scott imble, who finished second in the GSC 3et in 1988, returned to lead the men ' s am. Susie Cook and Amy Heaps, all-GSC nners in 1988, figured to make make e women ' s team strong for another ason after leading the Lady Lions to two aight GSC championships. But because injuries and various other reasons, the ams were only able to compete for team mors in three meets. Tlie men ' s team weis led by senior Scott imble who was UNA ' s top finisher in ery meet. Steve Murray was on Trim- 3 ' s heels all season, finishing second on 3 team in cdl but one meet. Trimble and Murray started the season right by tying each other for first place the Hamilton Collegiate Invitational with 30:42 finish over the five-mile course, imble ' s fastest time of the season came th his second place finish at the UNA vitational where he turned in a time of .:30. In the two meets where the Lions com- ted for team honors, they finished third the University of the South and UNA ( itationals. ULE8 The Lions finished the season with a sixth place showing in the South Regional. Trimble and Murray com- pleted the course in times of 33:48 and 33:55, respectively. Their times were good enough for 1 1th and 12th place in the individual com- petition. The women ' s team was led by Amy Heaps who was UNA ' s top finisher in all but one meet. Heaps turned in two first place finishes, at the Hamilton Collegiate Invitational and the UNA Invitational, in times of 21:08 and 19:23, respectively. Susie Cook ran a close second all season but finished the season with her best time of the year at the South Regional meet. The Lady Lions finished the season with a fifth place showing in the South Regional meet. Cook and Heaps placed 10th and 11th in individual competition posting two of their best times of the year. Cook finished in 19:33 while Heaps com- pleted the three-mile course in 19:49. Both the men ' s and women ' s teams should be extremely competitive again next year as several top performers will return for another season. Coach Bishop will have the luxury of working with two of the top men ' s performers and three experienced returnees on the women ' s squad. Junior Steve Murray and freshman Chris Truelove, the number two and three runners on this year ' s team, will provide a good foundation for the men next season. Their experience and leadership should provide the Lions with another solid cross country performance. The women ' s team will also have a strong group of returning runners. Sopho- mores Susie Cook and Lisa Kennemer and senior Sherry Kennemer, three of the top four runners this year, will give the Lady Lions another talented team. Both the men ' s and women ' s teeims will possess experience cind leadership for the 1990 campaign, two qualities which should provide UNA with another out- standing cross country season.

The Lions had gone 2-8 in their litial season under Bobby Wallace 1 1988 but turned that into a 6-5 lark this fall, marking a four game mng — not a bad jump for a squad icked to finish eighth in the conference I a pre-season poll of league coaches And while a 6-5 record would have een a welcomed finish in most circles, the ions were close to a lot more. UNA lost vo games in the final minute and were ist 14 points from what could have been ' 9-2 finish. Despite those losses, the UNA program . well on its way to again contending for lie Gulf South Conference championship, ith just 10 seniors and seven juniors on le squad in 1989, the Lions knew to look ) the future as a sophomore quarterback id the way for an all freshman backfield. nd with few players lost from the 1989 sam, a GSC championship may again be lose at hand for the Lions. " We are still a very young football team lUt we matured a great deal this season, " aid Wallace. " We got great leadership om our seniors and this team worked xtremely hard for the things it accom- lished. We were just two touchdowns om being 9-2 but we ' ll take what we ' ve ot and continue to work hard and grow s a team. " Wallace made several coaching changes prior to the season and all paid off immediately in 1989. Offensive line coach Ikey Fowler was named defensive coordinator and former Lion assistant Mike Hand returned cjs offensive coordinator. UNA went from last in almost all defen- sive categories in the GSC in 1988 to third, giving up just 264 yards per game and 128 yards rushing. Offensively the Lions geiined 316 yards per game and picked up almost 200 per game rushing with freshmen finishing as the top three rushers on the team. UNA opened the season against Alabama ASM at Birmingham ' s Legion Field. The last time a Lion squad had appeared there was a 1971 loss to Jack- sonville State. But this trip to the historic stadium produced different results as UNA controlled the Bulldogs with a stubborn defense and rolled to a 19-7 win. The following week the GSC opener at Mississippi College loomed big for the Lions against the defending league co- champions, but seven turnovers, five of which led to Choctaw scores, devastated the Lions in a 34-0 loss. Back at Braly Stadium, UNA began to rebound and posted a 17-3 win over Albany State and followed with a 31-12 win over Delta State to move into the national spotlight with a No. 20 national ranking.

A 36-yard Mike Berry field goal gave UNA a 16-10 lead with just 2:43 left in the game and UCF got the beill back on its own 18. But 82 ycirds and 10 plays later, Sheme Willis found Shawn Jefferson in the end zone with a 26-yard touchdown pass to tie the game with just 58 seconds left. Franco Grilla ' s extra-point then provided the win- ning margin. The loss overshadowed the perfor- mance of freshman Tyrone Rush who gained 124 yards on 20 carries for UNA ' S first 100-yard rushing performance of the year. A 28-6 win over Tennessee-Martin put UNA at 4-2 cind pushed the Lions back into the Division II Top 20 at No. 19. The defense dominated, holding the Pacers to just two yeirds rushing and 136 total yards. The Lion offense rolled up 340 yards as Craig Bryant completed 11 of 17 passes for 145 yards and rushed for 38 more. The third ranked Jacksonville State Gamecocks rolled into Florence for the seventh game of the season and the pos- sibilities were great. After missing an early opportunity. Berry kicked a 32-yard field goal to give the Lions a 3-0 lead with just 1:53 left in the hdf. JSU fought back and tied the game on a field goal of its own just before the heilf to make it 3-3. In the third quarter Sedric Bamett reco- vered a fumble to stop one Jacksonville State drive but the Gamecocks fineilly got into the end zone with 1:06 left in the period to take a 10-3 lead. Rush returned the ensuing kickoff 32 yeirds, however, and in just four plays UNA was at the Game- cocks ' one-yard line. After two dives to the middle failed to score, UNA went outside andJSU forced a fumble to kill the drive. The only other score in the game came when Bryant stepped out of the back of the end zone trying to pass to make it 12-3. James Davis led the UNA defense with 23 tackles, just one shy of his own school record. UNA gave up just 208 yards rush- ing to the top ground gainers in the GSC and limited queirterback David Gulledge to only six yards on 15 carries. The letdown of the loss to the Ga cocks carried over the following weel a struggling Troy State team took a 23 win over UNA. The Lions got five ti overs from the Trojans but couldn ' t ber from them, rushing for just 98 yards ; getting hit with eight penalties for yards. With the record now at 4-4 with th games remaining. Coach Wall; challenged the Lions again and looket the possibility of a 7-4 finish with th straight wins. Livingston was first in line and U gave its most complete performance of season in a 30-0 win. LU gained just yards on the ground and 130 total ya while the Lions were rolling to 539 t( yards. Rush carried for 143 yards on carries and scored twice as the te gained 359 yards on the ground. A trip to Carrollton, Ga., to meet West Georgia Braves produced a 27 win cind a 6-4 record.

With only four experienced players returning and a wedth of in- coming talent, the Lady Lions volleyball team opened the season in preparation for a run at their sixth straight Gulf South Con- ference crown. " A lot of people would say we cire in a rebuilding yecir with only four people back with any match experience, " said Coach Ande Jones. " But we don ' t see it th at way. " We have good solid leader- ship returning and probably the best incoming group of players we have ever had. " UNA hcis won six of the seven GSC volleyball crowns presented since the league began sponsoring a volleyball champion- ship in 1982. UNA had won the crown five straight years in a row until this season. The Lady Lions began their season at the Troy State Invitationd by winning four out of five games. UNA score leaders were Wendy Skinner, Hellen Frazier, Dana Long, and Kristie Grant. UNA finisl second to Mississippi University Women. The Lady Lions went on to del Middle Tennessee State at home fo: tough test in its home opener game.

The Lady Lions held on to win a reserved spot against finalist Jeix State. The Lady Lions dominated the game to win the championship. Leading players were Hellen Frazier, Wendy Skinner, Kathy Lovell, Kristy Hunter, and Kristie Grant (who played with an extremely sore shoulder). The Lady Lions continued their winning streak until they ran into Mississippi University for Women. They rebounded with four consecutive wins until they met West Virginia. Then they suffered a small downride of losses until a match against Rollins College during the West Georgia Invitationeil (15-14). The Lady Lions next buckled in for a ride of wins and losses that brought them into the GSC tournament with a score of 17-16. The Lady Lions lost two of the first three tournament matches cmd were elimi- nated from further competition. The Lady Lions volleyball team finished the season with a heartbreaking 18-18 record. The seeison was certainly a rollercoaster ride for the Lady Lions. They worked extremely hard to hold it together with such a new group.

Additional leadership for the team is provided by Tim Gothard and Jeff Setch- field. Gothard serves as captain of the team and Setchfield as assistant.

UNA ' s team was Division II chan pion last season and hopes to do as we again this season. With only two returnees of the eigh members this could be difficult, b ut th ' members enjoy shooting and are workin; toward being the best.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) The golf team pulled hard this year, but they still were not able to capture any titles. The Lions golf team is actually composed of two teams — a fall and spring composite. Each team competes respectively in their acknowledged season. Despite having only three re- turning starters from last year, Head Coach Billy Gamble was very excited. ' The players we have return ing have some good experience, " Sciid Gamble. " Hopefully, they will be the real leaders of the team. " Gamble, who came to UNA from West Georgia where he served cis golf coach and assistant basketball coach inherited three returning players: John Cal- vert, a sophomore; Greg Lansdale, a sophomore; and Darrin York, a senior. The rest of the team is composed of Trey Jones, Jay Cleveland, Bubba Crump, Scott Glover, and Scott Burroughs. UNA opened its season at McFarland Park in September where they placed seventh. The Lions next travelled to Jack- son, Tenn., for the Goodyear Classic Invita- tional where they finished sixth. In October, the Lions finished 13th out of 20 teams at the Pickwick Classic Invita- tional at Martin. The Lions held a two-day total of 619, tying Bradley Univ sity. Trey Jones and Keith Ki were the low scorers for UNA. The Lions struggled at the Alabai Intercollegiate meet to finish 12 among state colleges. The Lions oi trailed leader Auburn by 32 strokes. Tr Jones and Mike O ' Malley led UNA golfc in the opening. The spring team managed to trim in 14-52 season. They came off a tough l season with several freshmen playii among the top spots. " We have a lot of young players bu think we have grown up a little, " sa Coach Gamble. At the Southern Intercollegiate tourn ment at Valdosta Country Club tl Lions finished 13th, with a total scoi of 968. Columbus was first with 894. Mai Dunn finished well for UNA with a tot of 228. In the Gulf South Conference UN finished seventh out of eight teams. Tl tournament was played at Guntersville " We really were down this secison, " sai Coach Gamble. The Lions were not expected to suffc a bad year, but two of last year ' s top fiv players were not eligible to compete.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) 286 TOURNEJfDREAMS Lion supporters never expected he stunning success the men ' ; )asketball team achieved this «ason. From the beginning, the ,ions have been full of. urprises, ccirrying off the First ' ederd Pepsi Tipoff Toumeiment rophy to fire a six-game winning utreak. After a few losses, they hen proceeded to beat the lumber one team in the nation, acksonville State, in a turnaround, (own to the minute game that hanged the nation ' s opinion of INA ' s powerhouse team. Kicking off their season with a first Jace win in their opening toumciment, the len ' s basketball team set a precedent for very successful seeison. UNA hosted the )umament, inviting three other teams, Jortheast Missouri State, Angelo State and lampton, to compete. After defeating lorthecist Missouri 80-58 in the first round f play, UNA returned to beat Angelo State 21-70 for the championship. Ranked sixth at the season opening, no ne, perhaps not even Head Coach Gary iUiott, was expecting such a stellar per- )rmance from his Lions. Asked his opin- )n of the game against Angelo State, illiott said, " What can you say about a per- )rmance like this? . . . This is one of those erformances that ' s one in a million. " After taking the tournament title, the ions went on to complete four more con- ecutive wins. These included victories ver Henderson State, Shorter College, ane College and North Georgia College. ;iter two minor losses to Athens State (87- 3) and Division I team Texas Tech (66- 0), they rebounded to breeze past Earl aulk Institute 97-82. Key players for the Lions include Steve lartin, Allen WUlicims and Ricky Johnson, lartin is the leading scorer cind rebounder for the team. Early on in the season, Martin became a member of UNA ' s 1,000 Point Club and is ranked in the five highest scorers of all time. Williams is the second highest scorer for the team, and Johnson is the second lest rebounder. Other important Lions include Floyd Macon and Todd Markham. After their win over Earl Paulk, UNA was narrowly defeated in a game with West Georgia Col- lege 69-71, a game in which Martin scored a heroic 30 points. The -ions then bounced back to beat Jackson- ville State in one of the most exciting gcimes of the season. The Lions fell behind in the first half and did not acquire a sub- stantial lead until well into the second half. Martin was again the leading scorer and the leading rebounder with 24 points and 14 rebounds to his credit. This exciting victory over the then number one ranked team in Division n catapulted the team on to three more straight victories. These began with a win at Alabama-Huntsville, with Martin again a valuable asset, scoring 37 points and earning 11 rebounds. Still on the road, the Lions romped to beat Livingston 72-64 with Williams the leading scorer with 18 points and Johnson the top rebounder, with 16 rebounds. John- son was also a credit to the team at Delta State where he, as well as Eric Davis, scored 16 points and earned 15 rebounds to win the game in overtime 85-81. The Lions then hosted fifth ranked Mis- sissippi College in a riveting game that saw Martin score 40 points and UNA wcilk away the victor.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) 290 OUTSIJIEPLAY The women ' s basketball team faced a tough schedule this season plus some team rebuilding as they lost at least two top players from last year. The schedule, consisting of 16 GSC games in addi- tion to six non-conference games at home and away, was grueling for the Lady Lions. The Lions also lost their top inside player which forced them to play more from the outside. Coach Wayne Byrd, in his eighth season at UNA, said early in the season that " the thing that will lurt us most this year is what has been )ur strength in the past and that ' s our nside game. Not being eible to get the help I ve need inside, we may end up having to )lay some wing people in the lane. " Despite these concerns, Byrd and his .ady Lions were able to pull together for ;ome impressive performances. Although the team began the season vith a loss to Belmont College at Belmont, hey bounced back to beat the University )f Alabama at Huntsville in their home )pener. They continued this with a lominating 76-54 win over Blue Mountain lollege. By this time Gwen Thomas, Teenia [arris, Tracy McCall, Marie Miller and kMeshera Coins had all estab- lished themselves as top players for the team. Harris scored 20 points in the season ' s opener and 24 points in the win over UAH. Forwards Miller and Thomas were powerhouses against Blue Mountain College with Miller scoring 14 points and adding seven rebounds and Thomas scoring 15 points and adding eight rebounds. The Lady Lions lost on the road to David Lipscomb in overtime 93-92 with Coins the leading scorer. At home again, the Lions scored 48 points in the second hcilf to sweep past Belmont College 87-81. UNA cilso beat Belmont in rebounds 5 1-37. Unfortunately, the Lady Lions lost momentum and went on a losing streak. All these losses were by five points or less, with two losses in overtime and two by a single point. In fact, in the Livingston geime, UNA led almost the entire game and lost in double overtime 84-82. Thomas scored 16 points and earned 13 rebounds in that game.

Their next two james on the road were not as success- ful, as the Lady Lions lost at West Geor- gia and Jacksonville State. The Lady Lions finished up with a win- ning season, 14-13, and were ranked at the season ' s end as fourth in the GSC.

The cheerleading squad is composed of both male and female students. They are chosen in the spring for the fall season. They practice regularly during the summer and travel to competi- tion at a cheerleading camp held at Middle I Tennessee State University. At the Universal Cheerleaders Associ- ation camp the UNA cheerleaders were awarded two second place trophies. The trophies, received in the fight song and cheer competition in their division, were awarded to the UNA cheerleaders over ilOO other squads in the same division. j Head cheerleader Kayron Henderson said that since the squad had been con- centrating on rebuilding, they did not expect to win any awards. " We went to learn, " Henderson said. " We were happy with our performance but we didn ' t expect any awards. " Henderson said the awards were based on crowd response, spirit and technique. The 11 member squad including the mascot Leo n appear at university football and basketball games. ! " Starting with this year, we will have one squad instead of two, " said Hender- son. The teams are normally divided into two sepcirate groups — one for football cmd 3ne for basketball. The cheerleaders sup- port the teeims and help to raise the teeims ' and fans ' spirits. Qualifications include maintaining height weight requirements, a 2.3 GPA, and attending all practices. The Athletic Hostesses, also chosen in the spring, work with the football team. They help in recruit- ment, the Sportsman ' s Club, and the hospi- tality room. The hostesses must be full time stu- dents and willing to help support the ath- letic department. The NCAA National Championship Game between Jacksonville State and Mis- sissippi College was held on December 9 at Braly Municipal Stadium. UNA hosted the event. During the week before the game a var- iety of events were held. The NCAA Hostesses went through an orientation trairung program to " allow the hostesses to become acquainted with one another and to help them feel more com- fortable with their responsibilities, " said Jennifer Tucker, NCAA Hostess chairman. The Hostesses were selected on the basis of a personal interview. They were r esponsible for greeting each team upon arrival. The group also hosted a theme party at Listerhill Credit Union, breakfast at Holiday Inn, and a luncheon at UNA for each of the two teams. " Being an NCAA Hostess provided me with the opportunity to make many new friendships with both the players and the other hostesses. I feel that working as a team with the other girls helped me to get to know each one of them. Everyone had a wonderful time, " said Alicia Kelly.

Home equity loans from The First National Bank of Florence You may have thought that you ' d lost any chance for interest deductions on your taxes. Not true. You can still deduct interest on any loan secured by your home. You can use that loan for home improvements, to take a vacation, buy a new car, pay existing accounts- whatever you want. And this is a good year for a home equity loan. Because most other consumer interest deductions are being phased out by Congress. In 1988 you can only claim 40 percent of consumer interest. It drops to 20 percent in 1989, 10 percent in 1990, and totally disappears in 1991. Now is the time to get started on your 1988 tax break. Our First Services Reserve Equity Line qualifies as an on-going interest-deductible loan. And you have the convenience of writing checks for major purposes, with just one payment per month.

EDITOR ' S NOTE Coming up with just the right theme was an effort of tremendous brain expan- sion with lists accumulated to include over 200 possible themes. Friends, rela- tives, life events and music all combined to deliver one drained, depleted editor utterly themeless. With a little sleep and a short convergence of minds the theme hit me. What are we trying to do with our lives, our selves, our world? We strive to live it in our own unique way. Whether we are tall or short, affluent or not is of no conse- quence, only that we deliberate and progress through life with our own unique classic touch. With this in mind, the selection of the ideal and appropriate theme for the 1990 Diorama was perfect. With unique style and hard work anything is possible. It certainly has been a worthwhile and memorable year.

President Potts will serve until the search committee finds someone to fill the permanent position. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) H ometimes tradition is misinterpreted a meaning stale. Change, on the other hand is often interpreted as meaning revolutiona Students at UNA during the year covered by the Dio rama (February 1989 to February 1990) may have formed these opinions. They may possibly have seen the year ' s events as progress, and of course, many simply chalked it all up as one more of step- ping stones on the road to the future. And life would, after all, be a lot less interesting without these two words: change and tradition. This year was no exception, but as someone once wrote " what a strange and wonderful " trip it has been. The year saw the retirement of 17-year president Dr. Robert M. Guillot. It was a year in which Dr. Paul Baird assumed the responsibilities of the dean of Student Affairs and Dr. Daniel R. Leasure was named the acting director of University Development. Over 5,600 students attended the university during the fall semester, which set an all time enrollment high, and the name of the Education-Nursing Building was changed to Stevens Hall in honor of Dr. Roy S. Stevens. New seats were installed in Flowers Hall and the Board of Trustees discussed the building of a student parking deck. The air was full of change. Robert Potts was named interim president after Dr. Guillot ' s retirement, and Baby Leo grew much too big to cuddle. Somewhere, however, in the meantime students attended classes, wrote term papers and gathered in the University Center to discuss plans for their college weekends. The squirrels which scampered from tree to tree were still a welcome dis- traction to the students attending classes in Bibb Graves Hall, and students still gathered at the Memorial Amphitheatre to study. But UNA didn ' t just look like a school, it felt like a school, and as the ivy tried to regain its grip on the towers at Wesleyan Hall, the chimes tolled the fate of every late student. It was a year which saw a few changes, but some things thankfully remained. The most important thing was that the year touched our lives. We lived it, and we ' ll remember it for many years to come. It was a year which set us apart from every- one else. It was classic year. We ought to know — we were there. DIRECTOR OF UNIVERSITY DEVELOPMENT Dr. Daniel R. Leasure addresses the media during a January press conference. Dr. Leasure was appointed to the office by President Potts.

" In another sense the university too, kin- dles a light— a light to brighten students ' paths to the future. (Photo by Mark Casteel)
