Should 1 major in art or biology? Will I ever get my fall schedule just the way I want it? These are ques- tions that many college students ask themselves as they begin their long road to higher education. The transition to college life is not so difficult, especially for those beginning freshmen who attend SOAR, the Summer Orientation and Advanced Registration pro- gram. There were nine sessions during the summer, and each ses- sion lasted two days. There were also SOAR counselors on hand to guide the SOARees through the program and introduce them to the various aspects of college life. The SOAR counselors were Danny Roberts (head), Jackie Allen, Lori Brown, Paul Boone Foster, Carmella Miley, Stephanie Moore, Malaea Nelms, Kristie Rivers, Holly Ratliff, and Dawn Victor. Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities, said that the group of counselors was particularly strong this year. " I am very pleased with the SOAR counselors, " said Glenn. " Every year, they are a little bit different, and instead of picking individuals, we pick a team. " Though the SOAR program is not the same from year to year, it SOAREES have a number of chances to make new friends during SOAR. The Performance Center provided a place for the groups and their counselors to get to know each other. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) does not change drastically each time. Sometimes only slight adjust- ments to the program are neces- sary, Glenn said. " There have been no big changes, " said Glenn. " There are refinements. We look carefully at what we ' re doing and we try to do it better. " Many people think SOAR is for beginning freshmen only; however, transfer students are also entitled to some help while they adjust to a new campus. Because of this, a few SOAR sessions are set aside for transfer students exclusively. By attending SOAR, transfers can adjust to a new campus and a new way of doing things before the fall semester begins. Though the SOAR sessions are very informative for the SOARees, they are also entertaining. Skits per- formed by the SOAR counselors and Glenn provided humor and information simultaneously. Another highlight of SOAR was the SOAR Cabaret show. The SOAR Cabaret cast and crew consisted of students. Cast members auditioned in the spring, while crew members applied for their positions. The SOAR Cabaret cast mem- bers were Amber Hunter, Anissa Palmer, Alex Newborn, Amy Lock- hart, Jay Webb, Jeff Hairrell, Jason Crandall, Leneda Burton, Leslie Gant, and Scott Weaver. Robert Allen Holder, associate professor of communications and theatre, directed the show. Kevin Robison, who is also a student, was the music director. Cast members Leneda Burton and Jeff Hairrell said they enjoyed singing and dancing in the SOAR show. Burton said that it was some- thing she had always wanted to do. " When I went to SOAR and saw the cabaret, I knew 1 wanted to be in it, " said Burton. Hairrell, who had performed in SOAR Cabaret shows before, said there are several rewards to it. " The thing that has always stood out in my mind is that the best friends I ' ve had I ' ve met in the SOAR Cabaret, " he said. " And Robert Allen has really helped me a lot. He ' s a real professional. 1 learn a lot from him. " A show cannot be possible without a technical crew, however. The SOAR Cabaret crew, under the supervision of Alice Gross, techni- cal adviser, consisted of Susan Stuart (assistant to the director), Brad Grissom, Moore Hallmark, Chris Faxton, Daniel Babb, Brett Kelly, Tammie Burlingame, and Myles Ryder. They were responsi- ble for props, lights, and other tech- nical aspects of the show. College may be an overwhelm- ing experience for many people, but with the help of everyone involved with the SOAR program, the tran- sition can be a rewarding experience. 8 4W ItT filBiiiililiiiiitt DAVID 1 ITTERMAN did not make tt to any ot tn« bOAK sessions, but Dkwdor of Student ActMUM Bob Glenn did.

These people are SOAR Coun- sebrs. and though it may app ear that they arc always having fun during the SOAR sessions, all of them will admit that it is also a kjt of hard work Why does anyone choose to be a SOAR counsckjr? There are a number of reasons, and each response varies from one counselor to another. Jackie Allen enjoyed her first yammer as a SOAR counseter this - and she sakj that it is a thrill " «ig a counsebr Tm getting to help those stu- dents who otherwise woukl be k st in the fall, " Allen said. The chance to serve the univer- sity was one of the reasons that Paul Foster wanted to be a SOAR coun- sek)r. He also wanted to become acquainted with the other coun- seksrs and find out what they wanted to do to help the SOARees. Foster does not believe, however, that involvement in the SOAR pro- gram should stop with the counsebrs. " Other students should also get involved with the SOAR program, " he said. Two ways of doing this are by being a member of either the SOAR Cabaret cast or the crew. Carmella Miley, who was one of the cast members last year, sakl that she wanted to be a counselor because she wanted to help the new students so that they coukd be well- adapted when they come back in the fall. What was niost worthwhile for Miley, however, was " getting to know the other SOAR counsebrs, " she sakl. Lori Brown said she became a SOAR counselor because she wanted to be involved on campus. She also said that she wanted to help freshmen start their first year off right. Most importantly, she wanted to be able to help the SOARees after SOAR was over. " Getting to know the freshmen on a personal level wiD also be help- ful, " Brown said, " because if th«»y need help throughout the year, they will know who their SOAR coun- sek r was. " Though the reasons for being a SOAR counsebr are many, all of the counsebrs will agree on one thing: it is worthwhile for everyone who is involved.

April 14 was the birth date of the original mascot and the university continues the tra- dition of honoring Leo on or around that day. Joe Wallace, director of Univer- sity Events and Recruiting, is also the trustee and trainer of Leo II. He explained that it is a common prac- tice for monarchs to celebrate on the birthday of their predecessor. Wallace said, " Over the past few years the celebration of Leo ' s birth- day has become an all day event. This year we had 800 children from local elementary schools and day- care centers attend the party. The focus of the party is the opportunity for the university to honor the com- panies which sponsor Leo. " Showbiz Pizza and Wal-Mart of Florence are the major spon sors. Each of these companies donate ■Nkt.- wS Im UONS GET THIRSTV loo. especially after the excitement of a birthday party. Leo II takes time to quench his thirst In his water trough. (Photo by Mark A. Casteel) $1,000 a year to the Leo fund. UNA honored both of these com- panies with a plaque at the party. " Pepsi Cola is also a sponsor and donated drinks for the party. The Printer ' s Cove company donated ' Leo ' tee-shirts which we sell in order to raise money for the Leo fund. " Sadonna Collier is Leo ' s keeper. She played a large part in Leo ' s birthday party. " I was responsible for buying Leo ' s birthday presents, " said Collier. Some of his presents included a frisbee, bowling pins, a Pepsi barrel and several balls. " All of the presents were wrapped and Leo unwrapped them all. He managed to pop one of the balls before he got it unwrapped, " said Collier. Collier was also responsible for assisting the Ambassadors and Golden Girls who decorated the lion ' s cage. GOLDEN GIRLS Lori Brown and Angle Evans serve as hostesses at Leo ' s birthday party. The Golden Girls and Ambassadors also help Leo throughout the year by taking up donations, the primary source of income for Leo ' s upkeep. (Photo by Mark A.

Potts, University Relations Director Bill Jarnlgan and Chuck Worley made an appearance at the royal gala. (Photo by Mark A. Casteel) Golden Girl Co-Captain Lori Brown said, " There was a tent in front of Leo ' s cage in which we served drinks and cake. The cake was huge and had a big lion ' s head for decoration. President [Robert L.] Potts made a speech thanking the companies which sponsor Leo and presented plaques to these companies. " Melissa Cameron, also a Golden Girl, said, " I remember that the Chucky Cheese mouse from Show- biz Pizza was at the party. Teachers from many local schools brought children to the party. " The children ask a lot of ques- tions about Leo. Some of them ask what kind of food Leo eats. I enjoyed answering all of the ques- tions for the children. " For everyone who loves the mascot, Leo ' s second birthday celebration was a way of showing their appreciation. 12 ALT 1 X)GH LEO en)oyt chewing on barreb. hit actual dM b more nutrllious.

After the cast lists were made, rehearsals began Most directors agreed that tt was hard to schedule practice time. Most cast members had classes to contend with, some cast members worked and some attended other schools. Theatre major Beth Day said, " h was a bt of fun working with student-directors, but it was hard work I was in two one-acts, three days apart, and it was difficult find- ing the time to rehearse for both of them. " She performed In Krtstie Rivers ' one-act, " Sony, Wrong Number. " and " The Great Ameri- can Cheese Sandwich. " directed by Angie Gresham. During this time, directors began to help their performers learn hncs and show them blocking or move- ment. The set and properties were optional to consider. Some had elaborate sets, and others chose to use just actors. Director Susan Stuart brought in her own furniture and used many props in her play " Reasonable Circulation. " On the other hand, director Amanda WhitfieU chose not to use properties or a set. She chose to use a black stage with a spotlight. Whit- field ' s play. " Feminine Trilogy " was a combination of three short scenes from female plays. Costumes were another factor for student directors to consider. Senior Chris Wooten ' s play. " On Shiloh Hill. " was about the Civil War. He had to use certain costumes that he borrowed from a theater in his hometown. Jason Braly. a cast member from Wooten ' s play, said, " Chris did an excellent job in finding the appropri- ate costumes and props for his one- act. The Lunch Box Theatre is a good opportunity for students who enjoy the theatre, but have tight schedules. " In between rehearsals and set buikiing the student directors took time out to try to promote their plays. They had posters printed which they hung on bulletin boards and also posted a sign on each table in the University Center with each director ' s name, play, and date. All of the plays were held in the Per- formance Center and students, faculty, and guests were invited and encouraged to bring their lunches. Tabitha Adcock, one of the actresses, said, " I believe that the Lunch Box Theatre was a very enjoyable experience for the audience as well as the performers. I personally had a very good time working with my group. Most of the plays were comedies and most stu- dents and adults seemed to enjoy themselves. Being student directors gave them a chance to see if they would really like to direct plays. " PARTICrATING IN " On Shfoh HW m Patrtcfc Flanagan. Jaton Ciandal. Jaaon Bcaiy.

You have even con- sidered submitting your poetry to a magazine. Why not do it now? There is an abundarKe of organi- zations, activities, and events on campus for students to get involved In. Many students enjoy spending their time getting involved, but a countless many would rather do their own thing Why do some students not get involved? They certainly have their reasons Bryan Simmons, a com- mercial music ma)or. is busy prepar- ing for his next project, a home recording studio " Fve got other things to do. " said Simmons " I ' m starting Mega Hug. a business that will hopefully sup- -! me and other musicians for the ;;.-: of my life. " Kim Stephens limits her involve- • nt to Collegiate Singers, though ■ says she wants to become more mvoK ed in the future. She says campus involvement takes time and dedk:ation on behalf of the student, however " I think to be involved, you really have to be willing to be committed which would require a lot of time and energy. " sakl Stephens. " When you ' re limited to extra time, it ' s hard to choose between responsibilities and extracurricular activities. " Renee Sanderson has been involved with several organizations on campus such as the Commercial Music Association and the Univer- sity Program Council. She thinks that getting involved is an asset to the student. " I think it ' s great because it helps give the student some sense of direction. " said Sanderson. Involvement on campus ranges in degrees from one student to another. Marcus Stewart is one stu- dent who is on the far end of the spectrum. He is a member of Ascending Voices, Collegiate Singers, Chamber Choir. Vocal Jazz Ensemble, the Pride of Dixie Band, the Black Student Alliance, and his fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha. " The reason why I get involved is that I consider myself one of few minority leaders on campus, " said Stewart. " 1 feel like if I get involved, other minority members will get involved. " Mike Ward shares the same views as Stewart. Ward has been involved as a writer for the Diorama and as Student Government Association secretary, the head resi- dent assistant, a member of the university daycare committee and student organization committee, the debate club, Spanish Club, and Pi Beta Sigma. But Ward sees campus involve- ment in a different light, extending it far beyond joining organizations. He feels that involvement is impor- tant in supporting such things as campus elections and events. " I vote in any electkjns that come up. " said Ward. " I attend any con- certs if I can. As an SGA officer. I feel like I have to be a role model and attend events and vote in elec- tions if I expect other people to do so. " Getting involved on campus— a rarity among students or not?

(And more importantly, where does it go?) BY LEIGH ANN WUSC c . For most students, money is usually their biggest concern. While some students are lucky enough to receive money from their parents, others take jobs on or off campus to have extra money. Some students even take out loans in order to pay tuition expenses. According to Jo McGuire of the financial aid office, there are two types of loans that are readily avail- able to students in need. The most common, the Pell Grant, is based on financial need, and is granted to the student through the govern- ment. This type of loan does not have to be repaid. The Stafford Loan or Guaran- teed Student Loan, is administered through commercial banks to the student. All students are eligible for this loan, but it must be repaid, along with interest, to the bank. McGuire also adds that the Work 1 THE FINANCIAL AID OFFICE is a popular place for students who need to apply for vari- ous forms of financial help. Angie Evans pays a visit to the office and gives her forms to Carol Bucklns, secretary. (Photo by Anissa Palmer) WHILE STUDENT WORKERS are trying to make money for college expenses, they are an Important asset to the university. Allison Harri- son, a worker from Student Activities, helps out by running errands and photocopying materials. (Photo by Regina Craft) Study program is a very large source of money for students. This program, which employs between 400-500 students on campus, gives students a job that will work around classes. In order to be considered for work-study, students must first apply for financial aid by the April 1 priority deadline. After this dead- line, students can still apply and be accepted for on-campus work, but jobs are given on a first come, first served basis. Student workers are paid an hourly wage and are expected to work a minimum of twelve hours a week. While most students have various sources for money, where and how they spend it is just as widely varied. Sophomore Susan Stanley said, " My parents give me an ' allowance ' for my expenses. I find that I spend most of my money on entertain ment— things 1 want to do on the weekends, like cookouts, camping and boating. Second, 1 guess the rest of my money would go for clothes. " Junior Patricia Thompson said, " Most of my money comes from my part-time job on campus. 1 spend most of my money on entertain- ment, clothes, and occasionally manage to save some for school tuition.

Other activities students enjoy in their spare time include playing sports, spending time with a special person, or doing nothing at all. " I enjoy playing racquetbaD and football and working out with my friends. " said sophomore Doug Sul- Bvan.

Or how I J to advertise for a roommate? ■ Or where a fraternity party is being thrown? Or who is typing term papers this semester? Or what types of student services are availa- ble on campus? Look around. The answers to all these questions and more are right at your fingertips. Each Thursday, the circulation manager of The Flor-Ala unloads stacks of the student newspaper in racks all over campus. There is no charge for the newspapers, which cover campus events, sports, opin- ion, entertainment and more. The " news brief page " (usually page three) provides notes about club meetings, officer elections and other short announcements, and classified ads are free to students. On the way to class, check out the sign in front of the University Center. You can always catch infor- mation about upcoming events like concerts, ballgames, club meetings and fundraisers, or seminars. At the Information Desk, located in the University Center Atrium, you can pick up a copy of " The Lion ' s Tale, " a campus newsletter sponsored by the Student Govern- ment Association . Students can also call the Information Desk switch- board, which has a complete list of campus phone numbers. Or check out the ever-popular bulletins scattered around campus. Students can find information there on just about anything. From frater- nity rush information to cars for sale, bulletin boards are great sources. Live in the dorms? The residence halls have their own newsletter, " The Live-In Lion, " which is put out twice a month and is posted on the bulletin boards and elevators in the dorms. Leanne Wells, Rice Hall coordi- nator, said direct communication is a very important part of residence hall life. " We encourage the residents to come directly to staff members when they have questions or con- cerns. We do our best to keep staff and residents well-informed. " A useful guide to student services available on campus is the Help Services Directory. The direc- tory is distributed by the Student Affairs Office, located in the Univer- sity Center. Kathryn Cobbs, a counselor a the Student Development Center said the Help Services Directory i a good way for students to familia rize themselves with the differen types of services available. " The Help Services Director lists just about any type of assistanc students might need, from caree counseling to physician referral. W also list information about seminar for study skills and personal o educational development. " However, probably the moj popular form of communication oi campus is word of mouth. Right o wrong, rumors and gossip are hov the majority of students gather infor mation about campus happenings Rice Hall Coordinator Wells sai( word of mouth can be powerful ii providing information. " Probably word of mouth is th most effective means of communi cation. You ' re going to generat more enthusiasm for an event c activity by people who know abou it and who are interested in talking to students about it.

For th« first ttme in America, it became iBegal to sing a song. U.S. District Court Judge Jose Gorualez. Jr. . mled that the afcum " As Nasty as They Wanna Be " by 2 Live Crew was iih ene, and therefore not pro- 1 by the First Amendment ijuarantee to free speech. In CiiKinnati. Ohio, the district Momey ' s office indicted the Con- temporary Arts Center and its direc- tor Dennis Barrie on misdemeanor obscenity charges for displaying a photography exhibition by the late Robert Mapplethorpc The jury acquitted Banie and the galery. stating that the photographs wore artistically valuable and there- fore could not be classified as obscene These two prominent events have ignited a debate over the state of censorship in America The First Amendment of the Constitution stales, " XMn ess shaD make no law abridging the freedom of speech " With this in mind, many people are strongly opposed to the idea of censorship. Allen Voss, a junior from Lawrenceburg. Tenn., said. " Our country is based upon the idea that we are free to do whatever we choose as long as we don ' t interfere with the rights of others. No one forces people to buy or listen to music such as that performed by 2 Live Crew, so they should be able to sing about whatever they choose. " English major Brooke Perry agreed, quoting the time-honored maxim. " That government is best which governs least. " According to Jay Webb, the issue is not so easily resolved. " Many people have different ideas on what censorship is Some say it is not selling the records, while others see not playing a song on the radio as censorship. " Further complicating the issue is the matter of record labeling For years the Parents ' Music Resource Center, headed by Tipper Gore, has lobbied Congress for mandatory labeling of records containing sex- ually explicit and or violent lyrics. While the PMRC has not found success in the form of national legis- lation, many record companies have begun voluntarily placing stickers reading " Parental advisory, explicit lyrics " on many recent releases, such as Prince ' s " Graffiti Bridge " and Warrant ' s " Cherry Pie. " Even scattered record labeling has caused dissention. Sophomore Ashley Savage said, " I don ' t think it should be up to some bureaurocrat or the PMRC to decide what is offensive and what is not. That decision should be left up to each individual. " However, Webb said that, when It comes to record labeling, censor- ship isn ' t the real issue. " Many artists don ' t care about the Constitution: they just care about their record sales. It all boils down to money, not morals. " The debate over censorship will cool in time, however. Americans will find some other issue to grap- ple over and they will forget about nasty records and dirty pictures. But not for long.

' ,v CRISIS IN THE GULF Yhe biggest U.S. military buildup since Vietnam sparked concern for peace in our time BY MIKE WAi ■■fi ' Jfi-Y 7r- -m I his will not stand; this will not stand, this aggression against Kuwait. " These words, spoken by President George Bush in response to Iraq ' s invasion of Kuwait, officially signalled the beginning of the American military buildup in the Persian Gulf. In early August, Saddam Hus- sein, president of Iraq, invaded Kuwait, a small country that lies on Iraq ' s borders. Afraid that Hussein would attack other countries in the Persian Gulf region and thus con- trol a large percentage of the world ' s oil, President Bush acted quickly. He amassed United Nations support as well as the support of other coun- tries and implemented his military stragegy known as " Operation Desert Shield. " When President Bush ' s military operation went into effect the week of August 13, 50,000 American servicemen were sent to Saudi Arabia as blockades were organized to stop most import and export ships from doing business with Iran. With these military buildups. President Bush quickly drew his " line in the sand. " The military buildup has been the greatest since PHOTOGRAPHS of ASN Michael Spencer, Danny Williams and Lance Corporal Timothy Bradford adorn a table a Southside Baptist Church Church members set up the table to recognize the three of its members who are In the Gulf (Photo by Mark A. Casteel) the Vietnam War. Many students who serve in a Reserve or National Guard unit found that the Persian Gulf Crisis was a threat to them. How did stu- dents feel about the crisis? Junior criminal justice major Molly McHen- ney, a former sergeant in the U.S. Army and a member of the National Guard, did not see it as a threat. " If my Guard unit was called, I would go. It would also make me proud to serve the U.S. because I made a decision to join the Guard. " Some students feel that war is frightening, no matter how pre- pared we are. Tim Price, a junior criminal justice major and a second lieutenant in the Army National Guard said, " War is something that we have been trained for, but if war broke out, we would be scared because we ' ve never been in that situation. " However, all students are not in agreement that the U.S. is correct in their reaction. Alex DeJarnett, a junior, said, " They are calling it a crisis. I really don ' t see that it is a crisis right now. I don ' t feel that we are justified in our action. The only reason the U.S. is there is to pro- tect its money interests. " Tommy Martin, a sophomore and a Spec 4 in the National Guard took an all-or-nothing approach tc the situation. " We need to exert some military force in the Gulf or get out, " Martir said. Faculty members join students ir their feelings about the Gulf Crisis Dr. Clark Mueller, associate professor of history and politica science, said, " Saddam Hussein ' ; action is unacceptable and his rea sons are not valid. In this instance our presence is justified but w should move out of the regior when this conflict ends. " Dr. Jimmy Riser, associate professor of English and a Vietnan: veteran said, " I know we must pro tect our oil interests but I can set some parallels to Vietnam. W( might be trapped into staying in th( region for an extended amount o time. " The cold war is over but there an new threats to peace. With Presi dent Bush ' s " Operation Deser Shield, " along with support, it is tc be hoped that Saddam Hussein ' ; actions will discontinue and peac« will linger.

Potts was destined to be the president of our university. Certain parts of his life story seem to signify that, and his first connections with the university were here even before his birth— his parents. " My mother and father met at UNA, " said President Potts. " They met in 1941 in the media center, which was once a gym. " In 1943, his father joined the war effort in World War II because of the draft. His mother went back to Jackson County, then he was born in January, 1944. When the war ended, the family moved back to Prospect Street. President Potts ' s second con- nection with the university began when the family moved to 1016 North Wood Avenue. " My first memories when I would ride my bicycle or tricycle were of this big campus, " he said. " I lived only a few blocks away from Wesleyan Hall. " Living close to campus was not all that brought President Potts to the university. While he was in high school, he began HELPING TO PRESIDE over the All Campus Relays, President Potts Joins the fun at the Memorial Amphitheatre during Spring Fling. (Photo by Regina Craft) DURING A FALL RECEPTION for new faculty and staff, President Potts talks with David Brown, director of Alumni and Governmental Affairs. (Photo by Rob N4artindale) working at Wilson Painting Com- pany on 1157 North Wood Avenue. Once again, he came in contact with the campus. " I worked on painting crews on the construction of Rice and Rivers Halls and Floyd Hall, " he said. President Potts met his wife Irene in England and married her in Sweden. In the summer of 1966, he returned to Florence to work for Wilson Paint Company once again. By 1970, Potts became the attorney for the university. Once more, however, it was time for Potts to leave. In 1984, he joined the University of Alabama System and held several positions there. But when President Robert M. Guillot retired last year. Potts returned to the university to serve as the interim president. In August, he filled the position per- manently. " It is a wonderful feeling to be able to come back to where I grew up and contribute to it, " said Potts. Though his job required him to work seven days a week ai attend functions most every d, and night, Potts is very thankl for it. " I never dreamed I ' d get come back as president, " 1 said. " When I got the call and t! invitation, 1 just couldn ' t say nc But will President Potts just passing through once again? says he does not think so. " I obviously want to stay he as long as I can make a cont bution, " Potts said. " A univers prospers with stability in t administration. 1 consider it solemn commitment to stay reasonable period of time. Potts also feels that havi spent most of his life in Floren will help him to be a bet president. " I hope I ' m more effecti quicker than I would have be otherwise had I not been rais here, " he said. No matter how often Potts I or how far away he went, always came back to tl university. Could it have been fate? 32 A Brief Look At: Robert L. Potts Occupation and Position: University President, University of North Alabama Past General Counsel. The Univer- sity of Alabama System.

" There were very few times we came home without some- thing, " he said. Are there any talcs for Dr. Thomas to tell about his fishing trips? Though he did not attempt to imply that he caught " the big one that got away, " he did say that he and his father were quite good with the sport. " We were fishing up in Michi- gan one time and we knew we were having pretty good suc- cess, " said Dr. Thomas " We did not realize it, but we had filled up the fish sack hanging over the boat. We threw some back. We had a few more than the hmit. " After spending years fishing with his father, Dr. Thomas was familiar with several good fishing spots. The fact that his father, a Methodist minister, moved arourxl a k t also prompted them both to find new fishing spots every time they found a new home. " It also meant we could go back to where wc were familiar, " said Dr. Thomas. One reason why childhood memories are so special is because children actually have time to do more than work. Adults find that they have little time to enjoy the activities they once enjoyed, and Dr. Thomas can sympathize. " The unfortunate part is that with my job here I don ' t have much time for fishing and hunt- ing, " he said. Dr. Thomas said that he and his father did more fishing than hunting. " GeneraDy. we were fairly ck)S€ to lakes, " he said. But when they did go hunt- ing, their primary prey was rabbit, squirrel and pheasant. Dr. Thomas ' s busy schedule has not allowed him to enjoy these bouts with nature in several years. He fondly recalls the camping and fishing trips he would take with some friends. ' There ' s a group of us that used to go to Lay Lake, but we haven ' t done that in several years, " he sakl. " We used to camp out and fish.

With new responsibilities, there is even less time to concen- trate on how to get the " big catch, " so Dr. Thomas directs his attention toward his job. As provost, he has to be prepared to take over for University Presi- dent Robert L. Potts when he is out of town. " I feel a commitment to the university to try to keep up with these things, " he said. He also feels a commitment to the university ' s academic program. " I kx)k at this whole area of academics as being the heart of the university, " said Dr. Thomas. " Anything that relates to aca- demes funneb through this office. " More than anything. Dr. Thomas wants to help provide the students with excellent educational opportunities. " We ' re trying to provide the best possible academic program to the students of the University of North Alabama. " he sakl. " and we ' re trying to provide the best possible faculty to those students. " fKttr 35 Out of the classroom Dean of the School of Alls and Sciences Jack Moore misses teaching by Linda East DEAN OF THE SCHOOL of Arts and Sciences Jack Moore and Dr. Michael Moeller, chairman of the Academic Senate, confer before a board meeting. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) Dr. Jack Moore, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, said the school ' s major assets include location, small classes and the personal contact students have with their professors. This personal contact, accord- ing to Moore, is due to a large degree to professors ' established office hours which give students a " great opportunity " to interact with their instructors. But he also gives part of the credit for the school ' s success to the students. " Overall, we have very good students: very polite, hard- working students, " he said. Dr. Moore said being dean of the School of Arts and Sciences " involves being available to assist academic department heads and faculty with program development. " Which is a big job considering there are 15 department heads and approximately 100 faculty members. But, he said, " I attempt to work within the normal work- day " and sometimes he succeeds. When the work day is through, Dr. Moore said he enjoys yard work and gcirdening. He has a small farm in Win- ston County and said he likes boating in nice weather. He said he would " love " to teach again. " I miss the interaction with stu- dents, " he said. The major changes he said 1 has seen in the school since 1 became dean are the accredit tion of the art department ar the re-establishment of the crin nal justice major. But, he said, he only play a minor role in these change and he gives credit to C Elizabeth Walter, head of ti Department of Art; and Dr. Bi T. Lindsey, head of the Depa ment of Sociology. Moore first came to UM (then Florence State) in 1972 a biology professor, a position 1 held for ten years. He thi served as head of the bioloi department for eight years befo being named dean. lUls and Sciences Faculty HASSAN S. ABOUL-HADI Professor, Sociology DR. D.

(Photo by Mark Casteel) fsat, 39 picture perfect day The presidential portrait of Ethefoert B. Norton, a man billed as the " great educator, " was unveiled Sunday, November 11, at 2 p.m. in the University Art Gallery. Dr. Norton served as presi- dent of the university from 1948 until he retired in 1972. He had previously been on campus for two years as a student at Kilby Training School. The Jefferson County native had, by 1948, already established an illustrious career in education. A graduate of Birmingham- Southern College, Dr. Norton began his career as a teaching aide in Montgomery County. Three years later, he was a rural school principal in Coving- ton County. After seven years in that role, he became the county superintendent of education. He then spent four years as the state superintendent of education. Dr. Norton was eventually appointed deputy commissioner of education in the U.S. Office of Education. He left that posi- tion to organize the secretariat of the National Council of Chief State School Officers in Washington, D.C. In 1946, Dr. Norton was among a U.S. educational mis- sion of 27 Americans invited by Gen. Douglas MacArthur to establish an education program for the postwar occupied coun- try of Japan. After Dr. Norton ' s arrival in Florence, the school began one of the largest, if not the largest. building programs ever on the campus. During his 24-year tenure, the school ' s name was changed from Florence State Teachers College to Florence State College and then Florence State University. Two years after his retirement FSU became the University of North Alabama. The portrait was painted by local artist Dorothy Carter McDonald. McDonald studied art at Kilby Training School and is an alumna of the university, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree in art education. McDonald has taught at Desh- ler High School in Tuscumbia and Coffee High School in Flor- ence. She enjoys donating her By ArUMriUti paintings to public and churcl causes. The portrait will hang in it permanent location in Norto: Auditorium. The performin center was named in Dr. Noi ton ' s honor after its completioi in 1968. According to publishei reports. Dr. Norton still support the university by keeping track c trends, breakthrough, develop ments and setbacks in th nation ' s education programs although he has been retired fo 18 years. Dr. Norton said, " Educatioi will never be perfect. It ' s simpl too important for us to ever thin it can ' t be improved. It needs ti keep getting better all the time. STANDING NEXT TO his official presidential portrait, the 88-year-old Dr. E.B. Norton acknowledges an ovation from the crowd gathered for the unveil- ing of the picture. President Robert L. Potts presided over the unveiling ceremony. (Photo by Hank Houke) 40 Arts and Sciences Facuny OR aiZASETM WALTER Head. Oepartnani ol M noMun 01 WT OR PAUL YOKL£Y. JR HMd.

ConwHl maintains an open door policy by Linda East As dean of the School of Bus- iness, Lawrence H. Con will says the most delightful aspect of his position is interaction with stu- dents, especially seniors who stop by his office to share their occupational objectives and job possibilities with him. It is the students, as well as the faculty, that are the school ' s big- gest assets, according to Conwill. It is his open door policy that allows such a free interaction with these assets. " Students are in on almost a regular basis discussing any problems they have, sharing ideas, " he said. As dean, Conwill is " respon- sible for all of the activities of the School of Business. " This covers a broad range of activities including teacher and student recruitment. Conwill, despite his many responsibilities to the university, says he tries his best and is very successful at not worrying about his job when he heads home in the afternoon. " If you use the time you have on the job adequately, then you should be able to accomplish what you need to accomplish, " he said. Another section of his depart- mentalized time schedule is spent on a variety of activities. Conwill is an avid woodworker and gardener and is active in a vari- ety of church and civic organi- zations. He is the author of Just Ram- bling, a book dealing with changes that have taken place over the years. Conwill ' s two young grand- sons also claim a certain amount of his time and his son and daughter are both graduates of the university. He said the highpoint of hi career as dean of the School o Business is the establishment o a graduate program and th( development of new under graduate majors. In 1958, when Conwill firs began at the university as ai assistant professor of accounting there were six faculty member with only two majors offered - business administration an( accounting. In 1964, he was named hea( of the business department an( when the School of Business wa formed in 1973, Conwill wa named dean. Today there are seven major and 38 faculty members. That ' s a big accomplishment But, for Conwill, success in eaci " department " of his life i imminent. Business Facuny PAULEHE ALEXANDER Assistant Professor, Computer Infonnation Systems CHARLES L.

Faculty, empk yees and stu- dents completed a survey In the fall of 1989 Other data came from the university business office and kxal government offKials Alexander said that 51 per- cent of the students and 41 per- cent o f the empbyees woukl move elsewhere If the university were to " suddenly not exist. " This coukl cause a drain of $56 million on the economy of the Shoals area. The total impact includes direct expenditures of all the empbyccs and students of the university as well as the direct expenditures of the university for goods and services. Also Included is the indirect impact caused by the respending of those funds In the local area. According to the study, the university employs 472 people full time: creates an additional 4,200 jobs; expands the credit base of deposits in bcal institu- tions by $27 million; generates $6 million in revenue for the k cal government through taxes; and acts as a " talent magnet, " attracting people with special skllk and knowledge The university ' s major expen- diture is salary, whk:h accounts for two-thirds of the institution ' s $21.4 million total spending. Housing is the major expenditure for students and employees, accounting for 17.4 percent of total spending. ly UaiilM The university ' s 5,581 stu- dents spend $31.8 million annually. Alexander said, " The findings of this study do lead us to believe that we are conrect in stating that the university is a vital p art of the economic well-being of our area and makes a significant differ- ence, in terms not only of the quality of life in general in our area but also in terms of the eco- nomic prosperity of our area.

Despite the higher admission standards, the number of stu- dents in the teacher education programs have increased signifi- cantly. Students now are required to have at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale to gain admission into the school. Hattabaugh said his position entails taking responsibility for the overall teacher education programs. " The vast majority of our stu- dents are in teacher education programs in the School of Edu- cation; however, we do have non -certification programs, " he said. Many programs involve work with the Kilby Laboratory School, the Northwest Alabama Regional Inservice Center and the Educational Computing Research and Development Net- work which designs computer software. Hattabaugh said most of his family activities are related to teaching. His wife is a primary school teacher and one of his daughters is an elementary education major. His younger daughter also attends the university and his oldest son is in the seminary. Hattabaugh said he enjoys par- ticipating in Boy Scout activities with his youngest son who is 13 years old. Hattabaugh came to the university in July of 1986 after serving as dean of the School of Education at Henderson State University. Originally from Indiana, he attended school in Illinois and received his doctorate from the University of Illinois. For Hattabaugh, education is not just a job, it ' s a way of life.

Mike Hall, instructor of health and physical education, is in charge of the program, which began with 15 volunteers from Hall ' s water safety classes. In the fall semester Hall had more than 50 student volunteers from across campus participating in the program. Kilby parents are extremely supportive of the program, Hall said. To show the volunteers their appreciation, Kilby parents have provided each group with a token of thanks. The first year tee shirts were given. Since tfien, the parents have given the volunteers sweatshirts, sweat- pants, etc. " The students who volunteer really make our program what it is, " said Hall. Each swimming class has about 18 Kilby students and is about 30 minutes long. The classes are tailored to suit the needs and talents of each individual Kilby student and are similar to the Red Cross " Whale Tales " program. The instructor-child ratio in the Kilby swimming program is close to one on one. This asjaect of the program is one of its many By Jennifer i unique qualities. " The program benefits t university students in that encourages volunteerir teaches commitment a responsibility and allows t volunteers to experience the j of teaching, " said Hall. The Kilby Professior Laboratory School contains k dergarten through sixth grac and provides laboratory traini experiences for School of Ec cation majors.

Wilson, dean of the School of Nursing, said people can only be one person at a time and that that person can do two things at a time but not three. " Don ' t have guilt because you let one go, " she said. " We have to juggle our roles. " Wilson assumed her role as dean of the School of Nursing 14 years ago and said her mission as dean is trying to reach the university goals. One of these goals was to be reaccredited by the National League of Nursing. Another goal Wilson strives to maintain is to provide the work- force with quality nurses. To do this, Wilson said, it is important to limit the number of students in the nursing program. " We turn out a very good beginning professional nurse, " she said. One reason for that, said Wilson, is that the small number of students allows nursing instructors " to know the students as individuals. " She said in order to be a good nurse, students " have to want to work with people. " Most people expect that. However, Wilson said that, besides interpersonal skills, students must be prepared to enter a high-tech field because nursing is becoming more and more high-tech every day. Wilson, who has two daugh- ters (both of whom are UNA graduates), said she enjoys working with students and said that professors and advisers should be concerned with more than just a student ' s class sched- ule. They should help them real- ize their full potential. Wilson came to the univers from Northwest Alabama Juni College in 1976. She receivi her undergraduate degree Honolulu, her masters from t! University of Idaho and her dc torate from the University Texas at Austin, where si worked as a research associal In her spare time , Wilson sc she enjoys reading. " I ' ve always appreciated iit( ature, " she said. Her favorite types of boo are science and " a lot of pop lar reading. " Her current passii is Agatha Christie. Although she is a Clarksvil Tenn., native, she said she committed to the Shoals area which is a big asset to the ar if she is as committed to it as s! is to the School of Nursing.

Then pay a visit to Dean of Information Technologies Garry Warren. His hobby is woodwork- ing, and though he probably would not lend you his supplies either (a wise move), he could give you a lesson or two in his area of interest. Why did Dean Warren choose woodworking as a hobby? It was actually an alter- native to something that involved a lot of grease and grime. " I used to work on cars, " he said, " but after you have car parts laying around, it gets messy. This is much cleaner! " Dean Warren ' s hobby also has its advantages. " Having a hobby such as that makes it easy for people to get me Christmas and birthday gifts, " he said. (Hint, hint!) But do not misunderstand the meaning of it all. Dean Warren ' s idea of woodworking involves more than a stick, a pocket knife, and wood shavings falling at his feet as he whittles. " I ' m in the process of complet- ing a hobby shop in my back yard. I ' m also very much into remodeling my house, " he said. By spring, Dean Warren hopes to have the hobby shop completed. His new shop will also benefit him in the process of house remodeling, since it will be easily accessible. " We ' re knocking walls out and putting walls in, " he said of his remodeling project, " but we will remodel every room in the house. We ' re really just redoing everything.

" And once you complete a project, it is something in front of you and a source of pride. " He also describes it as " a way to use my hands in creativity.

This is a busy world that we live in, but Dean John Paul Baird has a very busy world of his own. After a somewhat chaotic year for the administration because of several changes in personnel, things are finally looking up. And Dr. Baird, who is now the dean of students and the director of the Student Development Center, also feels that there is finally stability at the top. He has also found that holding down two very important jobs at once can be time-consuming. " It ' s been a pretty busy year, " said Dr. Baird. " I ' ve tried my best to maintain the services in the Student Development Center while maintaining my duties as dean. " He also feels that the changes in administration could benefit the university. " With a new administration there are always a lot of new ideas and new deci- sions to be made, " said Dr. Baird. Though he has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. Dr. Baird works with a suppor- tive staff to help him accomplish his goals. " We have an excellent staff, " he said, " and what I ' ve tried to do is support them in every way possible. " While his staff helps him. Dr. Baird also strives to help them in return. " My main goal is to be an enabler, to enable my staff to do the best job that they can do. " What does Dr. Baird do in the small amount of free-time that he has? " You ' re likely to find me down at the soccer field cheer- ing on my ten-year-old son, " he said. Dr. Baird is also a scout den co-leader for his son ' s troop. Besides having a son. Dr. Baird and his wife Beveriy have a three-year-old daughter with whom he also spends his time. Once a year. Dr. Baird als engages in a hiking expositior " 1 lead an exposition of bad packers into the Great Smoke Mountains, " he said. " I ' ve bee doing it anywhere between 1 and 15 years. " His fellow hikei range from his college roommal to his high school footbe teammate. But while his work does nc leave much time for such hoi bies. Dr. Baird is proud of h jobs and the university he serve " We have some good studei leaders here, " he said. " The role is very important in makir UNA even better than it alreac is. " He continued by sayin; " There are really a lot of goc things about UNA. And there ai a lot of good things that we ecu improve on, too. " " I ' ve seen a lot of positiv steps. We ' re destined for muc greater things. " Support Personnel J. HOLLIE ALLEN Interim Director, Admissions JANICE W. ANDERSON Music Librarian J.R. ATENCIO, JR. Director, Computer Center CLYDE R.

John Rokosny, Beth ' McConnsck and Simon Archambault (along with lellow t and members Daden Youmant and Joe Aldanese) etedrlfied some tans into a head-banging frenzy. _ The concert was sponsored by the University Program Courtcil. (Photo by Mark . i V George Carlin brought his stand-up routine to Flowers Hall in the spring Laughing all the vay Flowers Hall became the stage for comedy when Grammy Award- winning comedian and actor George Carlin and his special guest, Dennis Blair, brought laughter to the campus. The University Program Council spon- sored the spring concert, Blair warmed up the audience with his impersonation of musicians, rang- ing from Bono and Prince to the Traveling Wilburys and the Jackson family. Blair continued with his musical theme by pointing to the differences between modern concert audiences and the concert audiences of the past. Blair ended his show with a musi- cal rundown of the ' 80s with imper- sonations of Bruce Springsteen, Jim and Tammy Bakker, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Manuel Noriega, and Ronald Reagan. A brief intermission between the acts didn ' t interrupt the flow of laughter but allowed members of the audience to breathe before they were launched into the comedic realm of comedian By Michele Anders George Carlin. Carlin, who performs more than one hundred concerts a year, assumed the stage as an old pro. Carlin began his sketch with a introduction of what the audience would not be hearing during his concert. After his explanation of his language policy, Cadin began to discuss " those moments in life that seem to last forever " — life ' s little embarrassments. Afterward, Carlin wittily discussed " suggestions for keeping people alert. " Carlin left no group unattacked during his act. He expressed his ideol- ogy that humor is what makes us human and that anything can be laughed at. Carlin is not only a comedian; he is also an actor. He has played charac- ter roles in " Outrageous Fortune " and " Bill and Ted ' s Excellent Adventure. " He played the title role in Blake Edward ' s television movie, " Justin Case. " Carlin has always wanted to be performer. " Like a million other kids, I sat i movie theaters and saw myself on th screen. In my case it was Danny Kays Red Skelton, the Marx Brothers, an half a dozen other movie comediar who inspired me, " said Carlin. During the early 1970s Carlin ha four gold comedy albums after his in tial exposure in clubs as a stand-u comedian. The next medium for Carli was television, specifically Home Bo Office. Carlin did seven line-ups fc HBO, the most recent being " Doin ' Again. " Cadin said that he sees little mor to accomplish in the stand-up field, bi will continue to tour and work in fror of audiences because, as he puts it, ' love creating and developing ne material, and the direct immediat response from a live audience is lik nothing you can explain. " " YOU CANT PLEASE everybody " is a common phrase that applies to George Carlins performance While many people were offended by his humor, diehard Carlin fans knew what to expect from the come dian.

" ' he orchestra revisited its days of Band fame when the members ormed such hits as " Stardust " and mmer Rklge Drive. " Only three days later on September 27. the Smithereens proved to an enthusiastic crowd in Norton Audito- rium that they do not have to wear tight spandex pants and have bng. blonde hair to rock and roll. The natives of New Jersey also brought with them their opening act. Carry Nation, who made a huge impression on some audience members. " I was really surprised at the quality of the opening act, " said senior Ken Vickers. ' I really was impressed by their musical style, " said sophomore Ashley Savage. " It was almost haunting. " The Smithereens equally impressed the audience with such songs as " Blues Before and After, " " Cigarette, " and " Green Thoughts. " The Smithereens ' s style was refresh- ing for some fans. " It was relieving to finally have a band come to UNA that played music I could relate to, " said Tom Piper. Music dominated the season, but comedian Lewis Grizzard brought laughter to Ftewers Hall on October 4. Though he spoke to a packed house, Grizzard ' s performance received mixed reviews among the audience members. " I am an avid reader of his books and his column, " said Robin Gann, " but 1 was disappointed by his lack of new material " " 1 enjoyed it, " said Debbie Duquette. " He has a lot of funny material. " Music returned to campus on December 7 when the R B act Today performed the final concert of the year. The four-man vocal group and the band originate from Englewood, New Jersey. The group is " the hottest act to come out of Motown in years, " some critics say; however, it seemed that Today had not yet become a house- hoU word (or anywhere near it) . They performed to a small crowd of approx- imately 500 people, according to Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities. Glenn also said that the concert was by no means a failure. Many of the audience members found it to be one of the best of the semester. " I enjoyed the show because it was good, " said sophomore Jude Robedeau. " They have a nice mix of rhythm and blues with just enough pop thrown in it. " " 1 spoke to several people 1 knew at the show and they all enjoyed it a loi, " she said. " It was obvious that everyone enjoyed the show because of their response to the group.

" — the spring production was a delightful exploration of the comical aspects of lovi Fairy tale theatre Star-crossed lovers and magical fairies brought the spring production of " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " to life. " The fact that it is a comedy sets the play apart from other works of Shakespeare, " said Jim Davis, direc- tor of the play. " It isn ' t the usual tragedy typical of Shakespeare. It is a fun play, a kind of happy Romeo and Juliet. " The play, set in Athens, opens with Theseus, Duke of Athens (Brian Bran- scome) talking with his future bride Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons (Libba Hill). Enter Egeus (Brooke Perry) with an argument for the Duke to settle. His daughter Hermia (played alter- nately by Amber Hunter and Kristie Rivers) is supposed to marry Demetrius (Doug Young) , but she is in love with Lysander (Jason Braly). Demetrius is beloved by Helena (Jude Robedeau), a woman for whom he shows no affection. The Duke rules in favor of Hermia ' s father so Lysander and Hermia run away to the enchanted wood followed By Ashley Savage by Demetrius and Helena. Meanwhile, in the woods the King and Queen of the fairies, Oberon (Richard Welborn) and Titania (Missy Ricketts) are having an argument over a changeling boy. Oberon orders his henchman Puck (Mark Wells) to put a spell on Titania. The spell causes her to fall in love with Bottom the Weaver (Paul Evans) who is in the forest with a group of tradesmen practicing a play to perform at the Duke ' s wedding. Alex Newborn portrayed one of the tradesmen. He said, " The most fun was in the rehearsal scene for the play within a play; the physical aspects. " Continuing with the play, Puck and Oberon have also decided to use this spell to help Lysander with Hermia and to help Helena with Demetrius. " My favorite scene was the one where Demetrius and Lysander are arguing over Helena. It was a chance for us to almost do slapstick, " said Doug Young. After a few mistakes with the spells, the lovers are together at last and Oberon and Titania stop their fightir At last, the Duke ' s wedding takes pie followed by a truly comical perf( mance of the tradesmen ' s play " Pyi mus and Thisbe. " The play required a large ca Other cast members were Patr Flanagan, Chris Wooten, Jason Crc dall, John Gamer, and Tommy E. S lins who played the mortals. Beth D Regina Lucius, Veronica Andersc Mary Beth Crafton and Ant Gresham played the fairies. The play ran April 2-7, playing large audiences at each performan( Davis and his student crew put a gri deal of effort into the play. " The cast really pulled togethe said Doug Young. " Every rehear and every performance w« different. " Jude Robedeau probably b summed up everyone ' s feelings saying, " The cast and crew work together like clockwork and the e result was a magical fantasy brought life and enjoyed by children and adi alike.

Do you wonder who built the sets or made the costumes? Do you realize all the thought that goes into the actor ' s movement? Probably not, and that is because you are not supposed to. The polished perfor- mance is all the audience is usually allowed to see. Most do not realize the weeks of hard work that make opening night such a success. The process of bring- ing the Department of Communica- tions and Theatre ' s fall production, Arthur Miller ' s " The Crucible, " to the stage began even before the start of the fall semester. " This play was picked before the semester began. We had auditions as soon as the semester started, " said Jim Davis, the play ' s director. Once the cast is set, the long period of rehearsals and set construction begins. For the actor, a connection to the character being portrayed is the first step. " Finding out about the character is important. There are certain charac- teristics you have to find out about your character, " said Brooke Perry, who played Deputy-Governor Danforth. MAKING SURE pari of the set for " The Cruci- ble " is secure are Myles Ryder and Kerrie Killen. Set coTistructlon Is an essential in preparing for a play. (Photo by Hank Houke) AS PART of the set construction team, Tammy Burtngame paints one of the props. The set con- Mructors try to make the props as realisttc as pos- sible (Photo by Hank Houke) By David King Davis agreed, " You have to do the history of the period. You discuss what the characters are after. Then you have to go out and do it. " Amber Hunter, who played Mary Warren, knows all about the doing. " An average rehearsal lasts from about 6:00 to 11:30 p.m. When you ' re not on stage, you ' re outside doing home- work, " she said. " There ' s a lot of backtracking and refinement, " Doug Young added. " You may spend three or four hours on half a page of dialogue. You have to get everything exactly right. " After the actors have memorized their lines they begin the method of blocking. " Blocking is coordinating the lines with where you ' re supposed to be. That process is the hardest, " Young said. Davis believes it is also the most important aspect of rehearsal. " It would be chaotic if you had 12 people on stage who didn ' t know where to move, " he said. While the actors worry about their lines and actions, there is another group of people preparing the techni- cal components. " The hardest job of any produc is the technical end. For this partic show, we only have three d between rehearsal and opening n to put in all the lights and sound eqi ment, " said Norton Auditorium tc nical assistant, Alice Gross. The crew had already worked hours just building the set. The sets planned in advance, but there always small changes. The fact that play was performed in the Per mance Center didn ' t make it , easier. Davis said, " On this stage you h to be very careful. You can ' t do a thing to the floor. We are also liml because it is smaller. " However, he likes the smaO intiin feeling of the Performance Center, added, " For this particular play, I it better than Norton [Auditorial because this play deals so much v relationships. " With all the work involved, a pen might wonder why anyone bothen work on a play. Amber Hur summed it up best. " I ' m a thea major and it ' s something I just enjoj do. All the long hours are wort when you get your final product. ' 66 -ml.iM milsis f «,4;; J■•y:yAm ' A ' ANYONE WHO BUU S • Ml mtMl UM 9MI pivcMon.

Well, okay. Winning is important, but so is having a good time, right? Freshman Tim Rhodes was among those who understood that the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat were insignificant compared to the sense of togetherness Spring Fling inspired. " It ' s a great way to meet other stu- dents and make new friends. " Rhodes also said, " Spring Fling is great because it brings all of the UNA organizations together. " Sophomore Rodney Stansfield, who competed for Baptist Campus Ministries, agreed. " It was lots of fun and I felt a lot closer to the people 1 played with. " Of course, he was talk- ing about the Twister competition! Everyone seems to have a story to By Chris Creel tell about Spring Fling. One might say that freshman Chris Graham ' s experience left a bad taste in his mouth. " After Spring Fling, I decided that Butterfinger candy bars are the worst food ever created by man, " said Graham. " I participated in the All- Campus Relay and I had to eat a But- terfinger and sing the Alma Mater. " " I also participated in the video com- petition, " said Graham. His group chose Van Halen ' s song " Jump. " However, there was one small problem. " We did not have a guitar, so I had to play air-guitar during the entire video, " said Graham. Freshman Judy Creasy ended up running around in circles during Spring Fling— literally. Creasy participated in EATING A CANDY BAR can be an enjoyable thing to do. however If lost Its appeal for Michael Yambrek during Spring Ring.

It s weD organized and we doubled r money raised over last year ' s ount " Festiversity not only raises money the United Way but it also gives w students and new organizations an portunity to meet new people and get acquainted with other organi- kxis. By Mike Ward Anthony Brooks, a freshman, said, " I feel very fortunate to have helped set up Festiversity because it has helped me meet many new people. " Jennifer Lambcr, first vice president of the Residence Hafl Association, said, " As a new organization, getting involved in Festiversity helped us come closer as an organization because it gave us a goal to work towards. " " Festiversity also gives faculty and staff the opportunity to meet one another socially, " said Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities. Will any improvements or changes take place in next year ' s program? " I think Festiversity was quite successful, " said Dawn Huntzinger, University Center assistant " We want students and faculty to give us suggestions on how to make the program better because we want to improve each year. " GriswoU said, " We want to improve our advertising of Festiversity in the community because we want to improve the community turnout. " Festiversity gave everyone a sense of pride. The people who helped make Festiversity a success are proud that the university is able to help other people. " The best part of Festiversity, " said Griswald, " is that we are helping other people through giving half of the pro- ceeds to the United Way. " Di Tyrec, director of the United Way of the Shoals said, " I think it is really extraordinary for students to realize that other people in the community need assistance. " By working with Festiversity, the students realize the meaning of the slogan, " The United Way, thanks to you, it works for all of us.

" Nelms is a senior majoring in public relations and radio-television-film and minoring in marketing. As one might expect, Nelms was excited about winning the pageant " Actually. I ' m speechless. " she said. " The pageant has been so exciting. 1 never thought I ' d ever get to this point. " Nelms had certainly been yearning for the title; this year ' s pageant was the third one for her. In 1988, she was third runner-up to Miss UNA Karen Kimbrell. and she has continued to participate in the pageants ever since. The Miss UNA pageant is something that most everyone anticipates, from students and university personnel to the parents and contestants them- selves. It is very important that the pageant runs smoothly, and according to Bob Glenn, director of Student Activities, this year ' s pageant did. " 1 was very pleased with the pageant this year, " Glenn said. " Everything went as planned. " For the third time, a master of ceremonies was chosen from the popular daytime soap opera, " Days of Our Lives. " Past pageants were hosted by Charles Shaughnessy ( " Shane Donovan " ) and Stephen Nichols ( " Patch Johnson " ) . This year ' s pageant was hosted by Michael Weiss ( " Dr. Mike Horton " ).

He b a regular contributor to the Oioramo and The FhxAJo. ! started taking pictures out of boredom when I was fourteen. I have always had an Intvtst in opticai tools and devices like tele- scopes, magnifying glasses and cameias. " said Casteel. " The klea of capturing an image whkh represents a piece of time seemed real neat. The attitude surrounding photographers seemed to be free spirited. " Being a photographer seems Ike a safe Job. but Casteel recalls an event that couM have easdy discouraged him. " I remember seeing a reporter shot during a live news broadcast. The reporter died, and I was so shocked by the ex| erience that I coukJ not go to sleep that night The reporter ' s death seemed so pointless and unjustified. There was no reason for him to be shot. He was not in a combat zone. I have not seen anything since then which has been as shocking as that event. " Casteel was busy loading several rolls of film into a development tank as he spoke of his future. " I would like to start my career at a newspaper and work my way up to some type of travel- ing position . Most of all I just want to be a serious news photographer. I want to be a honest photographer and make a living, " he said as he finished rolling the film. Casteel has been an active member of the campus photography program throughout his college career. He traveled to Europe with the first Radio Television Film group to participate in the " UNA In England " program. He has also been active In video production. " During the summer of ' 89 I had the opportunity to make a video for a rock band I was an Advanced Video Production student and I wanted to make a rock vkieo as the class project. One day when I walked out of class I ran into a friend of mine who was boking for someone to produce a video " We spent two days shooting and three days editing a video for his band. Apul Stacey Richter and Mark Wells were my assistants for the project. They ran the cameras and helped with the editing. We used the Chrome-a-kcy equipment In the video, and that made Dr (Edward) Foote happy because we were the first group to use that equipment.

PARKER, Detroit Sociology FITTING IN tness Fitness is a goal that many students attempt to achieve. between work and classes, physical as well as mental fitness is diffic to maintain. When thinking of physical fitness, most people imagine Ja Fonda workouts and picture Adonis- type figures. They equate phi ical fitness with physical beauty. This is what motivates most peoj to exercise. Appearance, however, is not the only factor that inspires peoj to exercise. Many simply enjoy the feeling of well-being that stayi fit gives them, " I feel better when I diet and exercise, " said Alicia Hamilton, Tl healthy attitude spills over to other aspects of life and can also ere; an atmosphere for better mental fitness. Once a student realizes that fitness is important, he must th tackle the problem of working it into his schedule. One solution obvious, as well as necessary— physical education classes, Taki a semester of aerobics tfeeC BETlrt WHEN I DIET AND EXERCISE. swimming, for example, r only couples exercise w convenience, it fulfills univi sity curriculum requiremei as well. Another necessary yet ni so-obvious opportunity i exercise is in the hills ai steps around campus, " Hiking " to the math building, climbing the third floor of Bibb Graves and then surviving the trek back your car is quite a bit of exercise in itself. Another way to stay in shape is to participate in university at letics. Like physical education classes, athletics require a student be physically fit and then allow him the time necessary to mainta that fitness. Joe Don Finley agreed, saying, " Participating on the school ' s tra team is the perfect way for me to stay in shape. " Students like Finley are not exceptions to some rule stating th college students have no time to exercise. They just prove that i ting in fitness can be done. Whether it means getting up 30 minut earlier every morning or squeezing that tennis class into your alrea( full schedule, finding the time to keep in shape is not impossibl Giving up free time may seem like a large sacrifice, but when tl reward is health, most students will realize that staying fit is well wor the trouble. BY CAROLYN MCALISTER TONISE A PARTRIDGE. Florence Elementary Education WHEN A STUDENT cannot work fitness around his schedule, he can work fitn into his schedule by taking physkal education courses.

If you answered " no " to any of these questions, please keep read ing. If you answered " yes " to any of them, keep reading anyway The university provides a mail service to all students. Upon enroll ment and registration, it gives each student his own mailbox numbei and combination. Resident students are able to receive all their mai through the University Mail Room, while commuters are only sup posed to receive campus mailings and flyers. Some students have managed to hold on to their box assignmen cards. Some have even managed to memorize their combinations However, knowing that all-important three-number series does no always insure easy access to your box. It seems that there is a sadis tic mathematical law guaranteeing that the time required to oper a box is directly proportional to the discomfort experienced whik trying. The shortest people on campus are almost always assignee boxes on the very top row. gr r, g f Bottom row boxes are no tite SriOrtCSt people any better. A student with on« ON CAMPUS of these will have to crouch ir ARE ALMOST ALWAYS front of his tiny mail recepta ASSIGNED BOXES ON cle until the blood supply tc THE VERY TOP ROW ' ' 3 ' completely divertec and he can ' t walk for the res of the day. Some students, out of frustration, end up sitting on th« floor, risking soiled clothing and trampled limbs. For resident students, campus boxes are a life line to the outsid world. Many commuter students have mixed feelings over th University Mail Room. " I ' ve only gotten two important pieces of mail the entire time l ' v( been here, " said David King, a junior from Sheffield. Birmingham native Dana Lardent agreed, saying, " It ' s really a pair because I have to go check my mail in the University Center all th time to make sure I ' m not missing anything. It would be so mud simpler if the university would send mail to my apartment. " The campus mail system is not all that bad, however. " It is inconvenient, " said Shane Howard, " but I think it ' s really a good idea. If it weren ' t for my mailbox, there are a lot of event; on campus like Festiversity that I wouldn ' t be aware of. " Like anything else on the planet, the campus mail system ha; its good points as well as its bad points. After all, if it was perfect the university would probably have to raise tuition to pay for it. BY TARA WHITTLE A STUDENT never knows if there will be mail awaiting him in his campus box. Denisc Wilson found some mail when she took a peek through the box window. (Photo by Rob Mar- tindale) 100 seniors sm tu TARA W SMTTH. Mouhon Econofnlo KAY SPARKMAN.

I probably should not say finally, because I am managing to gradu- ate one semester early. Attention juniors: graduation is not an easy task. Preregistration for the last semester will be a blur of green " please allow [your name here] to register for this class which is closed " cards. I have heard all along that I should not push myself; I should enjoy being young and carefree, etc. However, I am not going to college to fulfill myself, find myself, or broaden my horizons. No, I had one very simple purpose in mind when I went through SOAR: 1 want a job, and the board of education does not usually hand those out to just anyone. Do not misunderstand me. I may have only one purpose for being here, but that does not mean I have not had fun along the way. 1 have participated in just about every campus activity for which I am eligible. I have even humiliated myself at a couple of Spring Rings. the ob search IS PROBABLY THE ONE COM MMON ELEMENT AMONG SENIORS. WORKING HARD throughout the coDege years pays off when a student reaches the final year. Senior Leah Hoh works dlbgently on a term paper, knowing that it will be one of her last. (Photo by Rebecca West) What has kept me sane, and also contributed to my insanity, has been The Flor- Ala. I wrote my first Flor-Ala newspaper story before 1 attended my first class. The next year I was hired as an associate editor, and before I knew it I was executive editor. There is always someone in the publications department to talk to, laugh with, or yell at when the stress of college life gets to be too much Squeezed into a tiny maze of offices on the third floor of Keller Hall are the most interesting people on campus. Some are weirder than others, but all are lovable. The newspaper is what I will miss most next semester as I student teach and search desper- ately for a job. And search I will. The job search is probably the one common element among seniors. I have been filling out quite a few applica- tions lately, but it will be worth it when I get that perfect job.

IT WAS GREAT AND I CAN ' T WAIT TO DO MORE ! LIGHTS, CAMERA action How many times have you passed up the opportunity to be on Itievision? Chances are. you have never had the opportunity at ail. But what would you do If you had the chance to be in a television commer- daP Would you take it? Then are some students on campus who did not hesitate to audi- tion when they heard that some advertising agencies needed col- lege students in their commercials. In the fall, three commercial opportunlttM appeared. The comnterdais were for a local Chevro- let deaiers)4). Fhat Federal Band, and the NCAA Championship game. Robert Leon Dewberry grabbed the chance to appear on the tube when he heard about auditions for a commer- cial for the Chevrolet dealership. " I always wanted to be in I the entertainment industry, " Laid Dewberry, " ami when I was told about the auditions being held p thought it might be fun to go see what it was ail about. It turned but to be a lot of fun, and I got the job. " The next audition was for the First Federal Bank and NCAA Championship commerciids. Several students appeared at the cast- ing call and all of them were able to play an important part In the malting of the commerciab. either as talent or as crew members. Sherry Prurtt became interested because of a radio television film Jass she was taking. Soon, she found the camera focused on her. " I paitidpated in the NCAA commercial because I feh that It wouW me a chance to apply the skills I learned in RTF 226, " sakl Pruitt. Other students found that appearing in a commercial was an excit- ng experience, especially for students who were taking RTF courses. 3arbara Phipps, who is also a member of Alpha Epsilon Rho, the Broadcasting Society, was especially enthusiastk. She was one of he many AERho members who participated in the commercials for 1 specific purpxise. A Tomlinson Advertising agreed to contributL o the AERho fund in exchange for the help of the student mem- )er5 in the bank and game commercials. " The NCAA commercial experience gave RTF students a chance o work with a professional company. " said Phipps. The idea of being on television sparked enthusiasm in many stu- lents. and that spark turned into great expectatk ns for future oppor- unities for some students such as Dewberry. Al in all. it was great and I can ' t wait to do more! " BY ANISSA PALM ER NO TELEVISION COMMERCIAL can be compiale wIlKout a camera- nun Biikiy mtt acton.

(Photo by Rebecca West) 108 It is three o ' clock in the morning in Rivers Hall, the male rei dence hall. The fire alarm is rhythmically making an excruciating loud buzzing noise. Upon hearing this alarm, the residence hall stc jumps into action and begins clearing students out of the buildin Fire alarm drills constitute only a fraction of the work done the residence hall staff. Rivers Hall, along with LaGrange Hall ar Rice Hall (the two women ' s dormitories) , each have a staff consis ing of a building coordinator, head resident assistants, house RA ' and assistant RA ' s. The RA ' s job consists of counseling residents when necessar keeping order in the hall, and serving as resource people for tl residents. What are the benefits of serving as a house RA? Scott Mashbum, a house RA in Rivers Hall, said, " I like tl experience gained through managing people as well as helping tl students through their collet years. " Hannah Woodard, house RA in Rice Hall sai " Personally, I like the oppc tunity that I have to get know the residents on a pe sonal level and to help tl freshmen students adjust college. " A key aspect of the resident assistant ' s job involves developir programs for the residents. " Since we are considered resource people, we are benefici because we can provide information for residents, " said Mars! Frederick, a LaGrange Hall house RA. " We also provide entertai ment and educational programs for the students. " The job of an RA can also be difficult. Clay Herring said, " It tough when I must do my job and discipline a resident because son of them take it. personally. " Mashburn also finds that the job has its disadvantages. " It is also difficult when we must deal with childish and destru tive behavior from the residents, " he said. Being an RA can be difficult and time consuming but it is « extremely rewarding job for the many students who take tl challenge of the job every year.

I want to get out of here and find a real job and start making money! These are just a few of the thoughts that went through my mind every single day of my junior year. I had really looked forward to my third year of college. My basic requirements were behind me and I was ready to focus on my major. After five changes, I was actually happy with my major and excited about my classes. This excitement lasted until the first class of the semester began. After that, every day was a struggle to stay focused on school. I kept thinking, " I ' m a junior. I ' m almost through, " but that did not make going to classes and studying for tests any easier. I soon realized that I had fallen victim to the myth that college gets easier when you know what you want to do. Sure, I knew where my life was going, but I realized that I had between 60 and 70 hours of difficult, upper-level courses. Tests got harder and the grading was more stringent. It became occtiement LASTED UNTIL THE FIRST CLASS OF THE SEMESTER BEGAN. £■ « • . - J. obvious that 1 was going to ttUS C CCliemettV have to remain focused and think straight, no matter what. There was one thing that helped me overcome my anxiousness and anxieties. I had watched my older brother go through the very same problems during his junior year. However, my brother dropped out of school and went to Texas. He realized his mistake and went back to school within six months. No matter how bored or frustrated I got, I was determined not to follow in his foolish footsteps. My junior year wasn ' t a complete nightmare, however. There were a few bright spots that made the time go by a little more easily. The advantages of being a junior were obvious at registration. No longer did I have to take leftover classes at odd hours. Registering earlier finally allowed me to make my school schedule fit the rest of my life. I also began to become more involved with university activities. I finally went to my first football game, my first school-sponsored concert, and 1 even joined a few clubs. The last 24 months prior to graduation seem like an eternity. Looking back over the last 12, I realize that the time goes by more quickly than I realized. With the confusion of my junior year finally behind me, all 1 can do is look ahead with excitement to my senior year. BY DAVID KING JERRY GOOCH, Pulaski, Tenn.

Athens 112 T A K I N Q over When last sumiiMT began, I was bkstfuOy unaware of how tmpor- int my supnvtoor Karan Hodges ' )ob was. However, I soon had te chance lo find out exactly how important tt was— the hard way Maybe I should start from the beginning (If you ' re a child of the age, this Is when the screen ripples and clouds over.) In the of my freshman year, I became photo coordinator for the Dlo- . My duties IrKkided kaeplng up with campus events, working dariaoom and filng photographs. Sounds easy enough, right? The )ob required a lot ol footwork when photographers In pictures without identifkatton; the names of the people photo hod to be found. Sometimes I feh quaMed to be a detec- fer theFB! An in aO, it was not really bad. I started getting into the swing things and found that 1 enjoyed my job. That ' s when the bomb pped. Over the summer. Kwen, who is the university ' s publica- Dns assistant, told me the " good news. " She was expecting a baby. I was very happy for her. ifiinqs were SORT tJF CRAZY. AND EVERY NOW AND THEN WE ALL GOT A LITTLE CRANKY. Then she toU me I would be taking over her duties while she was on maternity leave. I was not so happy. I panicked. Karen always had a seemingly endless amount of work. I kept won- dering how I could do all of lat on top of nm job and school. I worried the entire summer about taking over for Karen. When te dreaded day arrived I walked quietly in the office expecting the ■orst Like Murphy ' s Law says, expect the worst— because it will robably happen. In addition to being photo coordinator for the yearbook. I had i assign photography shots to the various photographers, record pch shoot in a bgbook. and make sure aO the needed photographs )t the Diorama and The Fhr-Ala were taken. I also had to check ke mail for the Publications office and run various errands. The moment I started working, things started to snowball. Things lere sort of crazy, and every now and then we all got a little cranky. t other times we dkln ' t know whether to laugh or cry. Sometimes leh I wouki belt the next person who said, " I need ... " These feebngs of confusion continued until Karen returned. I had pver been so happy to see anyone in my entire life. I The result of all that madness was that everyone in the depart- ent gained a few gray hairs from stress, k st their temper once in while, and little Jeffrey Dillon Hodges came into the world. I never used to think much about how much responsibility Karen IS Remember the okl saying about never judging someone until xi ' ve walked a mile in his shoes? It is true. Taking over for Karen •ly made me realize how important she is to the university. BY REGINA CRAFT .

PRETTY woman What comes to your mind when you hear the words, " beaul pageant contestants " ? Do you think of a group of attractive yet cor ceited and shallow females who don ' t know how to do anythin except put on make-up and hot roll their hair? If so, you have not met many beauty pageant contestants, an you definitely have not met Leneda Burton. She does not get h( beauty tips from Tammy Faye Bakker, and there is definitely not! ing shallow about her. Most of all, she is very humble about her sui cesses in beauty pageants. Unless you ask, she never mentions then however, she is no amateur when it comes to pageants. Burton began entering pageants as early as first grade. When sh reached fourth grade, she placed as fourth alternate in the Sumitc Elementary pageant. She continued to enter pageants through h( sixth year in school, then something happened. " After sixth grade, " Burton said, " I just gave up. " Several years passed before she entered another pageant, bi everything changed when she became a junior in high school. " 1 got second alternate : t paid FOR [ y first TWO YEARS OF SCHOOL WITH BEAUTY PAGEANT SCHOLARSHIPS. the Junior Miss Pageant, " sa: Burton modestly. Burton ' s senior ye arrived, and she found ev€ greater success. " I won Miss Walk County, which was a prelim nary for the Miss Alaban- pageant, so I went to the Miss Alabama pageant, also. " Burton ah won the swimsuit competition in the Miss Walker County pagean As Burton entered more pageants, she never lost her ability 1 dazzle the judges. She placed as third alternate in the Miss Co Country pageant, also a preliminary for the Miss Alabama pagean and she was first alternate and swimsuit competition winner in th Miss Brlndley Mountain pageant. She also won the title of Mi Walker College, a junior college she once attended. Burton ' s most recent pageant was the Miss UNA pageant. In tf February pageant, she placed third runner-up, and she found it 1 be a wonderful experience. " I was excited, " she said simply. After years of beauty pageants, Burton has probably been askc often, " Why do you enjoy participating in pageants? " One reasc is for the scholarship money, she said. " The preliminary pageants offer scholarship money, " said Burtoi " I paid for my first two years of school with beauty pageai scholarships. " Burton said that she does not get very disappointed if she dot not place in a pageant. " I ' m just excited to get anything, but when I ' m in a pageant an don ' t place, it doesn ' t bother me because I know I ' ve leame something.

It involves studying aqxcis of flying such as flight safety, aeronauti- cal charts, aviaflon wathar syriams. radio communication, and aoss country flyir g. Th« aviation course is taught by Dr. Marlon Rico, professor of marketing. Dr. Rico has over 5.000 hours of flight time, including over 3.000 hours of inflight student training He is a commercial pilot, flight instructor and instrument flight instructor for both single and multi-engine airplanes. D r Rico is also an FAA certified basic, advanced, and Instrument ound instructor. His flight instructor rating displays the prestigtous Ck kl Seal According to Dr. Rico, this aviation course was offered once before. " I believe that during World War II they used to teach flying courses here at the university, " said Rico. Dr. Rico decided to offer this course again to interested people. There were many people in the community interested in flying. I feh there was a need to offer it, and since I have taught it before, I thought many people would be interested in taking it, " said Rico. The biisic pibt training course will be offered each February, and she instrument flying course will be offered each October. Tuition for the course will be extra and will not fulfill any college requirements The pilot training course was a very unusual one to teach for Rico, " h ts very different, " he said. " The students do not see me as being on one side of the fence and them on the other. I don ' t make up the tests; the FAA does The students sec me as someone there o help them pass these tests, not as the enemy that most college Istudents do " The classes are limited to 25 people, so if you are interested, con- tact Dr. Rico or be alert for informatkjn. If you arc one of the lucky iew who can take the course, you may be flying high in no time. BY TONYA MAPLES jumors Ro Ru ERIC ROSAR.

MM Black students on campus came together In the spring to hold he Black History Program. The organizattons who participated were Mpha Kappa Alpha. Alpha Phi Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and appa Alpha Psi The Ascending Voices hosted the program. The program consisted of Greek organizations talking about the lilstory of each particular organization and the contributions each (las made in Black American History. Some students read poems by famous Negro poets and did nterpretations of works by famous Black Americans. I One student wrote a paper entitled " A History in the Mklst of b Struggle. " This paper dealt with the advancement of Black Ameri- ans since slavery and through the f er od of segregation . The p ap er ' s luthor pointed out that Black Americans made many contributions o history king before the emergence of Martin Luther King, Jr. and 3ther famous Black Americans. The Ascending Voices per- formed a play entitled " I ' m Free. " This drama dealt with the freeing of slaves and how they overcame the rule of their masters. Many students feh that the program helped reach those who were not aware of the rcat achievements Black Americans have accomplished. There are nany Black Americans that became famous doctors, writers, and octs. and the program introduced students to these famous people. Marcus Stewart, director of Ascending Voices sakl, Tm very glad hat students were able to get together and share their knowledge W their cultural heritage and history. " Dr. Felice Green, associate professor of education, said, " Black tudents shoukl be very proud of their history. We have a history hats very rich In culture. " The pro-am concluded with the Ascending Vokres ' presentation i several Negro spirituab and other songs. Tammy Jackson, president of Ascending Voices said. " I ' m very lappy with the way the program turned out. I ' m glad to see the tudents taking part in their history. " BY JOHN WILLIAMS THE BLACK HISTORY PROGRAM portrayed black pride, and tt also demonstrated the talent of several students Members of the Ascending Voices showed their acting ability in their play.

I am thankful that I was onl ; average. When I entered college, I was still operating on the assumption hat a person declares a major, takes all of his classes, graduates, jid lives happily ever after. So I took the first step and declared a major. It never occurred to It nei er OCCURRED TO ME THAT I WOULD FIND OUT THAT I HATED WHAT I WAS DOING. me that I would find out that I hated what I was doing. It wasn ' t until the fall semester of my sophomore year that I decided I liked the two politi- cal science classes I had taken enough to major in the sub- ject. So I made change number one. By mid -term, however, I realized I had become very interested 1 my Honors Literature class, and since I ' d always bved to read rtd write, I thought it was only ksgical that I become an English u or. 1 went to the English department and in less time than it takes find a parking place. I had made major change number two. The final change in my major took place during pre-registration x the spring semester. I realized that my interest in political science «M still as strong as ever, so I signed up for two more courses in le subject One thing led to another, and by the end of the week, was a political science major and an English major. What has come out of all of this chaos besides two majors that M lengthen my stay in coOege? Now I am not only a political science rtd English major, I am also an expert at paperwork and an " avkl lader " of the University Bulletin as well. I still have one problem.

I finally found a topic i wanted to write an entire theme about. The room became silent as each one of us concentrated on writing, clearly and con- cisely, trying to remember every rule of grammar that we had ever learned.

Casteel) Many people dream ot acting in plays. There is the glamour o the leading role and the attention a person receives from thi audience. Acting can be the ideal way to gain notoriety. The first step to getting a part in a play is to audition. Many people even professionals, get nervous before they audition. Afterward however, the nervousness wears off. Alex Newborn is familiar with the nervousness that accompanie auditions. " The hardest th ing about auditioning for a play is not wanting t( go first and then regretting going last, " said Newborn. One of New bom ' s roles was in the play " Little Shop of Horrors. " Actress Beth Day said, " No matter how many times I audition I still get nervous. " Day, who performed in " The Crucible " an( " Spoon River Anthology " also said, " No matter how big or sma a part you get, it is the most incredible feeling when the lights g( down and the applause begins. " Doug Young, whose play experience includes " A Midsumme Night ' s Dream, " knows abou tAe most difficuh THING ABtniT HAVING THIS HOBBY IS BOUNCING FROM SCHOOL TO WORK TO REHEARSAL. the long hours and weeks c practice but still enjoys thi limelight. " All of the preparation and hard work really pay ol the minute you get on stage, said Young. Sometimes " hard work means more than learning lines for a play.

After experiencing the sometimes awful task of finding a parking (pace, the student has to go to class and listen to a teacher talk for in hour. Even if he has an interesting professor, this can really grow fcesome unless the student has an enormo us attention span. I h aD makes a person wonder. " Why do I go through this every lay ' " All abng he knows that this is a typk:al day in the life of a oOege student. For the common student, the day can be teng and tiring because « has to run to this class, keep up with notes, and try to be on me for all of the appointments he has scheduled. Many students k1 that a day in the life of a college student can be very stressful ecause of everything there is to remember such as, " Did I get the Ight book for this class? " or " Did I bring the right notebook? " [ " Many students have a schedule that they go by, " said Andrew Bagous, " and if they mess up that schedule then their whole day is off. The biggest thing is you have to run all over the campus and you have to be prepared or you will not be able to function well. " Some students say that after running here and there nd taking notes they just want to relax and have some quiet time, rtousiy. for many students the typical college day can be nerve ndng. h must not be too overwhelming, however.

She agreed, and now we ar roommates. Being roommates with Linda is fun. We are both so busy th; we barely catch each other coming and going. We have found that we share a lot of common interests. Neither one of us care to touch the stove too much. We both enjoy a good Rook game with friends. We both like swimming, hiking, grilled food, and going to concert The only things we don ' t seem to agree on are Sam Elliott an Jim Morrison. But all and all, I wouldn ' t change a thing.

But I was a full-fledged aduh now. I couldn ' t worry about something as trivial as my sister ' s feelings. Two days later I was moving in. 1 had no living room, dining room, I kitchen or bedroom furniture. " movirig in " was really not a very big job. h consisted of a dresser, ome shoes, and my teddy bear. Fortunately Michele, who had been through this before, was a lit more prepared than I and brought a couch and a table with her. h was a pleasant 95 degree day when we moved in. But the heat vas no problem, we decided, until we couldn ' t figure out how to let the air conditioning turned on. It was almost embarrassing. We vere two practically intelligent, college educated women, and get- Ing the air conditioning on is not supposed to be an incredibly com- llcated procedure, a fact we realized only after two hours of flipping he same three switches off and on It was the fourth switch we were lot yet aware of. But our brains kicked in, the air conditioner came on and " our iace " was nice and cool in a matter of three days. 1 Things did get better, and I like to think it ' s because we ' ve fol- C ed a few simple rules. 1. Like your roommate ' s boyfriend. Chances are, he ' s going to spending some time around the place (especially the couch) and i you cringe at the sound of his vok:e, it coukl cause problems •ecause most boyfriends do speak occaskjnally. ; 2 Don ' t spend every second with your roommate. In my case, I saw Mk:hele more before we became roommates, and having our ham little lives gives us something to talk about when we pass each Wier in the hall 3. Be nice (no problem for me). I 4 Do not leave three week okl pizza laying around the house, . spedaDy when your roommate ' s mother k planning to visit.

In the demonstration room of the Guillot University Center, th oldie-but-goodie " Shout " was playing, brightening the drear atmosphere. The music was not coming from a dance, but from th faculty aerobics class which meets two nights a week. Instructor Kim Mauldin feels the class is convenient for most facult members because they can come straight to the aerobics class afte work without having to wait around campus for a very long time The faculty aerobics class came into existence because of the efforl of Greg Engle, director of Intramural Sports and Recreation. Engl provided the radio, tapes, and mats for the floor exercise and pei suaded Mauldin to instruct the class. The class, which started in January, is a low-impact aerobics class which means one foot must be on the floor at all times. It usuall consists of a ten minute warm-up, twenty minutes of aerobics, fiv to ten minutes for coolin down, and twenty minutes c floor exercise. Several faculty membei are regular in attendance an feel that they have greatl benefited from the class. Staff member Donn Howard said, " I feel a pang of guih if I don ' t attend the class. " Vanessa Williams ' ballad " Dreamin ' " played softly on the radi while Mauldin watched her students as she led the class through floe exercises. Mauldin said she has learned to watch the class very cart fully. She recalled a time when she was leading floor exercises an the class was groaning in pain as they counted along with Mauldir As she turned around to encourage the class members, Mauldi realized that even faculty members know how to " fool the teach. The entire class was sitting very still as they were counting off exe; cises and groaning in mock pain! BY REGINA CRAFT A IF fed PANG OF GUILT I DON ' T ATTEND THE CLASS.

I was scared because I knew this campus would seem huge corn- ered to my Loretto. Tenn.. high school. More than that, however, was excited because, somehow. I knew that college would change « for the better. Let me clear up one point, first of all. I was not the stereotypical «shman who remains tost and confused for at least two complete imesters Instead, I am happy to say, I was prepared for this Bmpus I had been on two tours (one on Senior Day, one during OAR), attended college-preparedness discussion sessions in high :hool, and thoroughly read the student bulletin. Most of aD, my half-brother Chuck Bamett " coached " me on iverai things He woukl say, " The St. Fbrian route is the best way ) get to campus. " or. " Be sure to aDow enough study time for this istofy class " And he knew what he was talking about, too, mostly because (1) he attended and graduated from this univer- sity, and (2) he was my high school history teacher and knew well that history is not my favorite subject. I am willing to admit that some typical freshman traits did show through. I often ate inch in my car, being the semi-recluse that I was, but I soon over- imc that problem. Other than that, I had it all together. I am a junior now, and 1 often think about my freshman year. I coukl do it over again, 1 wouU not change a thing. I suddenly r»d mysteriously became more outgoing, joined several organiza- 3ns. made new friends, and decided on a definite major. I also ared to do thtrigs I woukl have never done before, and I am glad did. I only hope that aD freshmen will make the most of their college Bars Be confident and go for whatever you want. Make good rades. Think about your future and decide on a major. Meet new lends and have a good attitude about everything. If you do these ings. you have a k t to kx k forward to now. Whatever you do, make your college years worth remembering, •nee they are over, you can never go back in time.

Many other upperclassmen seem to feel the same way, though this change in the grade point average scale only applies to students W ho have enrolled since the 1989 fall semester. James thinks that the new 4.0 scale has many advantages. I " The chartge to the 4.0 scale is definitely a plus. One of the advan- Bges of the 4.0 scale is that the number of quality points received for grades has shifted upward and Ds actually have a quality point k alue now.

" I feel that the 4.0 scale is an advantage for the students it will effect because, generally, this s the scale that is accepted. As for the students graduating under Ihe 3 scale, employees do not take into consideration that a 2 85 average is not a C but actually a high B. Also, the school does not :larify this fact to companies, either. " Since so many other colleges have k ng-since used the 4.0 scale, ihe university ' s change now seems to be an inconvenience for those iwho arc still on the 3.0 scale The remainder of the students do, " lowever. have the advantages that the 4.0 scale provides.

Alright, admit it. You skip over eveiything in search of the comics " Garfield, " " Peanuts, " " The Far Side, " you will take anything yoi can get your hands on. You are addicted to those two-dimensione figures, and you know it. The campus newspaper. The Flor-Ala, has taken advantage c your addiction by employing its own cartoonist. His name is Ale: Newborn, and his cartoons always take a comical look at campus life How did Newborn become The Flor-Ala cartoonist? " It was a stroke of luck, " he said. Newborn took one of his cartoons to Linda East, the 1989-91 Flor-Ah editor, and she liked it. She asked him if he would tak the job full-time, and he agreed. " The opportunity for self-expression can ' t be beat, " said Newbon of the cartoonist job. Being a newspaper cartoonist is not anything new for Newborn He also drew some comics fc his high school newspaper and he has an amusini recollection of the experience " 1 had one or two cartoon printed, " he said, " that m one else got but me. " Not unlike most car toonists. Newborn has a styl of his own; however, he says he did not actually learn how to drav by taking art lessons. " I went to this art class for two or three weeks, " he said. " I decide( I already knew how to draw boxes and fruit, so I quit. " It is possible, however, that Newborn learned to draw cartoon by taking interest in those drawn by his influences. He says that hi likes the work of such " comic-strippers " as Gary Larson ( " The Fa Side " ), Bill Watterson ( " Calvin and Hobbes " ), Charles Schul ( " Peanuts " ), and Jim Davis ( " Garfield " ). He also admires the worl of Warner Brothers cartoonist Chuck Jones, whose autograph New born possesses. Not only is the cartoonist job an enjoyable experience for New born, but it is also a learning experience. " After I got the job, " he said, " it forced me to find out more abou what ' s going on on campus. " Sometimes the subjects of Newborn ' s cartoons take the humo too seriously, but he explains his motives. " 1 was told to draw things about what was going on on campus then all these peo ple complained about me picking on them, " h( said. " I told them that the cartoon was supposed to be about th( campus. " Despite a few complaints from the subjects about the content o his cartoons. Newborn says that the job is worth it. " I kind of enjoyed the notoriety, " said Newborn. " It was bette than the money. " BY AN ISSA PALMER CARTOONIST Alex Newborn works on a drawing for the stu- dent newspaper, The Flor-Ala.

The options are living on-campus in the doi mitory or living off-campus in an apartment or with parents. Whil the advantages for either are evident, students usually prefer on over the other. Sophomore Suzanne Grissom prefers living in a dormitory. " Driving every day is a hassle, " said Grissom. " Dorm life prevent the daily problem of trying to find a parking place. I enjoy the wal to class from the dorm, and it ' s also a lot more convenient to com to school functions. " Others, like sophomore John Garner, enjoy the comforts c home— a home-cooked meal and more privacy than dorm life ca allow. Gamer said, " I enjoy commuting. I think, though, that parl ing could be improved. There is also less privacy living in the dornr I like having my own bathroom and television. " Sophomore Vicki Duk agreed. " 1 like living o campus and being a con- muter, " said Duke " However, the one disadvar tage I have is the limite amount of parking. " For students who live to far from Florence to have choice between living at home or in the dorm, there are few option; Senior Tonise Partridge said, " I prefer living in an apartment to don life even though I ' m in the dorm now.

Potts attended the group ' s rehearsal the night before the band left for Selma. " This is a great educationa opportunity, " Potts said. " It i beneficial to ail whenever we can broaden the scope of the learning experience for e university student with hands on association with professionals. " " I was honored that I was chosen to take part in the movie, " sale Eric Casey. " 1 really enjoyed being in the movie.

Sheri Kramer faces the result of more classes: more time spent in the library. (Photo by Herb Stokes) A D E D With the awakening of a new semester, most students are read for new classes. We all look forward to graduation day, and som push it more than others. Do you remember when it was 7:45 on a Friday morning? Yoi studied all night and still did not have your homework finished? Man students have experienced this pain; yet, graduation is but a clas load away. While many students spend time with friends, enjoy pep rallies and hit the town, some students are trapped inside four walls am chained to an unleashed number of books. While many student have large class loads, excessive amounts of homework, and a gree deal of stress but little time, most of these students are also workini part-time or full-time to pay their way through school. Can more responsibility, plus devotion, equal motivation? Wendy Gowder said, " When I take 19 to 21 hours I seem to d( a lot better because the pressure is so strong. It just makes you wan to do better. " While Gowder took thi excessive amount of classes she still made the Dean ' s List Marilyn Callaway said, " have 18 hours, plus two part time jobs and two pre schoolers. In one class 1 havi tests weekly and loads c research in the library, plus I am engaged in a practicum. " What about Callaway ' s social life? " What social life? " she said. Sandra Locker took 18 hours of classes, has two children, anc works part-time. " I am very pressed for time, " said Locker. " Yet, it keeps me bus; while my husband is on sea duty on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln. Taking a large class load has its ups and downs. Graduation da; comes faster when a student takes a large load, yet time with fami lies and friends is limited. Perhaps, students with smaller class load: should use their time more efficiently by studying harder anc appreciating their friends and family members. Our time as students is limited, so we should buckle down anc appreciate our school and the small amount of time that we hav( here.

Who says that is such a bad thir g? But in fact, some good bargains can be found at these places. For instance, a friend of mine found a genuine Giorgio Armani jacket that had never been M •M M ' 4«.mA worn. When he checked on one man ' s lunk , i p , « h ISANOTHER over $400. A good bargain . ' A N S TREASURE. for $4. Today ' s fashion is influenced by the style of the ' 60s. At these stores you can purchase an article of ctothing that is actually from the ' 60s and pay much less than what a similar article wouki cost at a department store. The things you can find might be fuD of surprises. " 1 had a relative who bought a jacket that had a hundred dollars sewn into the lining, " said Leah Hoh. " You haven ' t found fashksn or style unless you have found your local dig stores, said Scott Weaver, a feUow digger. " To experience the fuD effect of these stores, you have to have a good imagination to sec what something can be. After aD. one man ' s junk is another nvan " s treasure.

" I think we really need to find out what inspires us to great things . . . what keeps us on the cutting edge and then go about creating those stimuli in our lives, " he said. He stressed the importance of interpersonal relationships. " We can ' t trample over people on our way to the top and expect to have any satisfaction when we get there, " he said.

Do you get shaky and nervous while waiting for the test to be handed out? Does your mind sometimes go blank when you see the test? If you answered " yes " to these questions, you could be a victim of text anxiety— commonly known as " test stress. " Test stress can be a real problem for some students. Tommy _ Sanders, a ' M3 i Z « % • " " ' ° ' ' ' ° ' I B I m ■ 1 Tl C?

The worst thing is to study and study, then go in for the exam and your mind goes blank. " Kathryn Cobbs, a counselor at the Student Development Center, said the best way to beat test stress is to visualize the test-taking process. By Deborah Menders " After you get finished studying for the test, visualize yourself goii through the process of taking the test — seeing the test being hand( out and then taking the test. Most important, visualize yourself doii well on the test and having a good feeling about it. " Cobbs, who gives seminars on improving study skills, said pi ing all-nighters and cramming for tests does more harm than goo She said studying well in advance for a test is the best way to rete information . " The brain can only remember seven to nine items at a time, students tend to forget a lot of facts that they crammed into oi night of studying. Start studying well ahead of time so you can absc all the material. Also, pick your ' up ' times to study, when you energized and can concentrate better. " Cobbs also said students need to carefully read and understai the test directions. She said students need to take time to look ov the test before starting it. " A lot of students blank out when they see the test. I recommei taking two or three minutes to look over the test and plan a stratec Start with the part of the test you ' re most comfortable with.

This year ' s Writers Conference had an unmistakable Southern accent. Three of the Conference participants are natives of Alabama and one is a Mississippi native. Larry Brown, whose first novel Dirt i Work was named one of 1989 ' s best novels by USA Toda j, is from Oxford, Miss. Brown ' s short fiction stories have appeared in a number of literary magazines, and a collection of his short fiction, Facing the Music, received the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters 1989 Award for Literature. At the Conference, Brown gave a reading from his upcoming novel about a quick-tempered detective named Gash Riprock, who gets his kicks from teasing criminals he has gotten off the street and into jail. Brown describes his new novel as " black comedy. " Pam Long, a former Miss Alabama and a UNA graduate, is the head writer for CBS ' Guiding Light, television ' s longest running dra- matic series. Long credits her success to being prepared for oppor- tunities and not being intimidated by any situation. She also gave aspiring writers iW B — 1 . B_ _ some advice. X AC1.xV.xXJ. IXXv has to feed the g writing, not the write moves allow that to Aspiring authors find encouragement and advice happen, bum- out is inevita- ble. Do the work, write the story and let the writers look at it. If they like it they probably will use it. " " Write every day, " Long said. " Half the work is done when the pencil meets the paper. " Writer Vicki Covington, who resides in Birmingham, was recently By Deborah Henders featured on Alabama Public Television ' s series on Alabama writer Alabanna Bound. Covington ' s short fiction has appeared in The Ne Yorker, Southern, and The Boston Globe Magazine. Her secon novel. Bird of Paradise, was released in May. Covington gave a reading from Bird of Paradise at the Confe ence, in which the main character, Honey, describes the day h( sister died. Conference participant Eugene Walter is a novelist, short sto: writer, poet, editor, lyricist, artist, actor, and film-maker. Walter, native of Mobile, lived in Europe for many years, where he helpc create The Paris Review. He is currently working on a novel, Adarr House Cat. Eileen Fallon, a vice president of the Lowenstein Associates Lite ary Agency in New York, conducted individual publishing confe ences and spoke on the role of the agent in writing. The Conference was sponsored by the English Club and Sign Tau Delta. English Club vice president Amy Masterson said the Co ference was a good opportunity to introduce students to the litera world. " The Conference gave students interested in writing a chance talk to the writers one-on-one and find out how they begn, and ho they got to where they are now. " The Conference consisted of writing seminars, individual publis ing conferences, readings of the authors ' works, and a public rece tion and autograph session. The purpose of the Writers Conference was to encourage wr ing, professionally or as a hobby. It gave students a chance to loc inside the writing process. Christie Smith, a senior majoring in English, said, " I liked the Pa Long series of lectures. 1 felt it was easy to relate to. She is a sma town southern girl who made it big in New York. That was an ince five to people; it made it seem possible to achieve a high go achieve the ultimate.

They 11 never know the excitement, the turmoil, tfie carnage that if registration. The very word ' regtatratton " sounds like something ■ ■■ ' .ti)p«!i)s just before rigor mortis, h will not kill you. though it pire murderous thoughts ak ng the way. It al begins with a giwwir g anxkxisneas in the pit of your stomach. " How crowded is it going to be. " you wonder. " What If all my dastes art- ck)Md. ' ' you fret. You know, though, that all the worrying in " i-worid wiB not help. All you can do is cross your fingers and hope ything wd work out. A good luck charm certainly woukj not hurl, either! The next obstacle between you and higher education is the watt- : game which goes something like this: sit down, listen for your name, stand in bne. sit down again. You will repeat this pattern kifinNdy or until everyone leaves and Security throws you out of Norton Auditorium Make it through the waiting game with most of your sanity intact, and you are halfway through. Next, you must face the actual act of registering for the classes you sdwted eariler and prayed you woukl get. The process is like lonwbtan , chaotic pilgrimage, tf you can just make it to the English tri ie and get into the third section of Western Literature you need, ou will be saved. By the time you finish wandering from table to table collecting hlMB placennent cards, you will probably be more than happy to sit lown in one of the cushioned auditorium seats and play the wait- ng game again. Once your name is called, you turn in your class cards, have your ichedule typed in a computer, and shell out your tuition money. Now it doesn ' t sound that tcnible. does it? Fine Arts major Scott By Tara WhUtie Weaver sakl. " I went through registratk n once and I hated It! It was like some academic purgatory aeated to punish me for not pre- registering. " Sophomore Ashley Savage offered some optimism. " I ' ve never been to registratton before, but I don ' t really see how it coukJ be as bad as everyone says it is. " Then, of course, there is drop add. Compared to registration, it can be a piece of cake. All you have to do is decide what you want that you do not have or what you have that you do not want, or even both. Then you just wait in line for your drop add card, sit around until they call your name, teD a computer operator what you need, and wait for your new schedule to be printed. Professional writing major Patricia Biyant said, " 1 was surprised the first time 1 went through drop add because it wasn ' t as bad as everyone said it woukl be. 1 got the class 1 needed and it really didn ' t take long at all. " Registration and drop add are like most other unpleasant things in life. You can go into them expecting the worst and that is most likely what you will receive. Or, you can adopt a good attitude and avoid the stress that most people must face. The choice is yours. So if you have to go through registration or drop add, just grin and bear it. Things could be worse. You might have to go through late registration! Along those same lines Registration takes more than a hit of patience NOT AiX STUDENTS wiio were al drop add were there to ad their tchedula.

Will it change drastically or remain the same? Let us find the answers to these questions from a source other than ourselves. Take a good look at the elementary school of today, such as Kilby Laboratory School. There are crayon drawings of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the hallways, and small children are either playing games, eating lunch, napping, or learning their multiplication tables. Now, take a look at four third-graders who will be college fresh- men before they know it. They think they know what lies in store for them, but do they? Meet Christy Rouse, Julie Rowe, Michael Friesen, and Luther Davis, II. Though they are only third-graders now, they think they are the experts on what college will be like in ten years. The first question to ask any child is, " What do you want to be when you grow up? " " 1 want to be a teacher, " said Christy. " I don ' t know what 1 want to be, " said Julie. " I want to be an astronaut, " said Luther. " I want to be a scientist, " said Michael. These may be common answers from kids, but their ideas about college are a bit unusual. What will college be like in the year 2000? " A lot of work! " said Luther. " We ' ll probably have ten million papers to do in about ten years. " " College will be hard, " Julie said, in a matter-of-fact way. " We will only have an hour to do a twenty-page paper. If we don ' t finish, we will have to eat dirt. There will be tons of homework, too. " Michael had his own ideas about college, also. " 1 think college is going to be sort of weird because we ' re going to be using robots, " he said.

The;, will be playing Nintendo games, of course. " We ' re going to Nintendo College, " said Michael. " Maybe we ' l have better Nintendo games by then. " Not only will the academic programs change within ten years, but according to these four youngsters, even the campus will change " The buildings on campus will be as large as the Empire Stat« Building, " said Christy. " There will be buildings on the moon. " Julie said, " There will be colleges on other planets, and there wil be roads connecting the planets so you can drive on them. " Even teachers will change, but not necessarily for the better. " Teachers will be really, really mean, " said Luther. Christy and Julie agreed, but Michael took the opposinc viewpoint. " They ' re not going to be mean, " he said. " They ' ll let you plaj and play and play. " Michael certainly thought that the look of teachers will change however. " I think teachers will be wearing spiked hairdos and sunglasses, ' he said. With no stone left unturned, these children thought the textbook: will be different. " They are going to be thick, " said Luther. " And we ' re going tc have to read all of the pages in two days. " " The writing in the books will be so small we can ' t see it and we ' l have to use a microscope, " said Michael. The children also thought computers will be a great asset ir colleges. " Computers will be teaching, " said Julie. " We ' ll get graded or computers, and we ' ll have computers instead of books. " " There will be computers on everyone ' s desk, " said Christy agreeing with Julie. " I don ' t think computers will be that important, " Luther said " They ' re old! " Is Luther out of touch with the future or will computers really gc out of style? Robots, punk teachers, extra-thick books ... do these third graders know what they are saying? The future lies in the hands of the young . . . 170 WORKING AT A MAIH BOOIH, Christopher Lambert and Patrick McKin- ney help each other complete a ladybug puzde by solving malhemalics probleiru Kilby School serves as a teaching station for student teachers majoring in early childhood and elementary education, as well as physical education majors (Photo by Mark A Casteel) ANSWERING QUESTIONS is a fuB- time job for third grade teachers— because third -graders have a million questions Margaret Lawler helps Jube Lawier understand her assignment.

Each of us has a different opinion about the first day of school. Some may be eager to return. Other students dread the end of the summer vacation. Kevin Johnson, a senior, said he was very enthusiastic about the new school year. " I was excited about another year of sports. The athletic program has greatly improved since Coach Bobby Wallace has become the head [football] coach. " Johnson said he also enjoyed the first of school because there are no tests or exams to worry about. The end of the school year can be a disap- pointment because of ail the stress which exams can cause. Johnson also said the most exciting thing about the first day of school is all of the opportunities the new school year pro- vides to share Christ with new people. Sheri Drummond, a junior, said she was not excited about the first day of school. " 1 did not want to come back to school but my dad made me, " Drummond said. " I really do not like to study but I love my major. My major is secondary education, and 1 cannot wait to get out and start a job. " are no tests or exams to worry aoout. i ne ena o Getting back on track The first day of a new scfiool year is exciting, nerve-racking and yes, fun ONE OF THE PRIMARY GOALS of THE FIRST DAY of the fall semester students on the first day of the semester Is to catch up on the latest news with friends.

Potts began his new position as the permanent university president. (Photo by Hank Houke) By Chris Creel Blake Beverly, a sophomore, had a mixed reaction to the new school year. " 1 was not really overzealous about starting school, but as with anything I would like to do well in, 1 was a little anxious. 1 registered the day before classes began and my pickings were slim. 1 did not get exactly what 1 wanted, but the classes 1 did get will probably be interesting. " Beverly seemed to be more enthusiastic about the end of the semester. " The break between semesters is always nice especially in the summer. It is also necessary! I believe we would all go insane without it, " he said. Jason Brown, a junior, said, " 1 was unprepared for the shock of returning to school because I was tied up in my summer activities, the results of which are not yet evident. Of course, compared to last year, 1 had no idea what 1 was doing. All in all, I feel better because 1 have dire ction now. " Bill Godsey said, " 1 was looking forward to seeing all of my friends and going through registration. 1 was also eager to continue my work in the art program. " Godsey did not have an easy time at first, however. " I had an unexpected experience with financial aid this semester. I found out a few days before classes began that I had not received a full tuition scholarship. 1 consequently spent a lot of time in the financial aid office trying to figure out how 1 was going to afford to go to school. " I The first day of school is an experience which we all share. Yell for each of us it is a unique and personal landmark in our lives. 172 DORMITORY RESIDEIYTS make use of the bearing d a semester by decorat- ing their rooms.

" Depending on the class, someone could skip one day if he or he can afford to and keep up with the work. " said one student. k all really depends on the individual and the class. " Of course, sometimes a student ' s nerves get a bit frazzled and w only cure is to take a break. One student said, " Everybody needs I break. If you take a day off it might help you keep going and do ittter in your classes. " Another student said. " It is alright to skip I class. especiaOy if you have other things to do and not enough Ime to do them. " On the other hand, is skipping classes really a good idea? " 1 think it is a bad kdea. " said one student, " because, personally. I miss a day— I ' m lost " One student pointed out that " sometimes Mchers count attendance toward your final. If you skip, you get By Ashley Savage points taken away. " What causes students to skip classes in the first place? " I had never skipped a class until one semester I took 20 hours of classes and worked 13 hours a week. " said one student. " Skip- ping classes was not my style, but I just started doing it in order to give myself time to do things I needed to do. " Another student said there is no good excuse for skipping classes. " No one should be that irresponsible. " she said. If skipping classes is such a big problem, what can be done about it? " Don ' t overload your class and work schedule, " one junior said. ' Take time to do the really important things, such as going to classes, and don ' t let any- thing get in your way. " Skipping classes— it is undoubtedly a problem on any college campus.

Their continuous involvement on campus and in the community prompted a university-appointed committee to bestow the honor upon them. A member of Order of Omega and Phi Beta Lambda, Tammie Burlingame has also served as the treasurer and president of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Burlingame has made a significant contribution to the university. " The past four and a half years to UNA is my contribution, " she said. " There were times when I consi- dered another school, but friends, faculty, and staff at UNA showed and Thirty-one students were honored proved to me by inclusion in a national publication is vyhere I should be. Mechelle Carter has been very active on campus. Some of her greatest honors include being president of the Omega Phi Alpha ser- vice sorority, vice president of the Political Science Club, and reporter for Phi Beta Lambda. Carter is also a member of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority and Omicron Delta Kappa honor society. " I believe my most significant contribution to the university has been through service projects, " she said. Homecoming Queen Katie Cope has also served as a captain and commander for the Golden Girls. She belongs to Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, is the treasurer for Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society, and is a senator for the Student Government Associ- ation. Cope also received such honors as the Undergraduate Ser- vice Award for 1989-90 and being named Golden Girl of the Year for 1989-90. Cope says the university has greatly influenced her. " My profes- sors at UNA have given me the personal attention and encourage- ment so rarely found at a larger university, " she said. " It is mainly due to their influence and their confidence in me that I have the motivation to continue my education next year on the master ' s level. " Receiver of the American Political Science Association Scholar- ship to the Ralphe Bunche Institute, EUa Davis is another well- deserving student included in Who ' s Who. Davis is also a member of Outstanding College Students of America and has had an editorial published in Christian Science Monitor. She is a member and a research paper nominee of the National Conference of Black Politi- cal Scientists. Davis says that the education she has received at the university has influenced her life.

Lori Ann Delano serves the university through her membership in Phi Kappa Phi, Kappa Delta Phi, and Circle of Omiaon Delta Kappa. She has also served as the vice president and treasurer of the Wesley Foundation and has appeared on the Dean ' s List since fall 1987.

" By Anissa Palme Tammie Eggleston, a member of the University Judicial Boan and vice president of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, is also a Goldei Girl and a senator for the Student Government Association Eggleston also has her special memories of the university. " The special memory that I consider the most important is thi time that I served as an RA [resident assistant] for LaGrange, " shi said. " I was not only a time manager but also a problem solver, had to deal with various attitudes and take on various responsibili ties that I feel will help me in the worid of business. " The university ' s Alumni Association presented Angle Evans witl a four-year scholarship. But Evans has time for more than academics She has been a Golden Giri; a member, recording secretary, an( chairman of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority; and a member and presi dent of Omicron Delta Kappa honor society. She has also servei as treasurer of the Order of Omega and has received variou scholarships. With all of her honors and involvement, it has not been difficu! for Evans to contribute to the university. " My most significant con tribution to the university is really two-fold, " she said. " First, it ha been my involvement in such student activities as Golden Giri am Alpha Gamma Delta. My second contribution is and will be my stron feelings for being a lifelong supporter of the University of Nortl Alabama. " Paul Boone Foster is also a very deserving member of Who Who. Having served as vice president of the Alabama Studer Government Association President Council, as an ex-officio membc of the university ' s Board of Trustees, and as president of the Stt dent Government Association, Foster has plenty to be proud o: Being SGA president, along with being a SOAR counselor, ha brought great memories to him.

She is also a member of Alpha Epsilon Rho, Ascending Voices, Circle K, and the Spanish Club. She has served as a LaGrange Hall activities chairperson for one year and an NCAA Division II Foot- ball Championship Hostess for two years.

She has also served as first vice president of the Physical Education Majors Club and is currently second vice president of the organization.

A jazz band guitarist, a tuba player in the marching band, and a member of the concert band, Robert J. Landry, IH, is very much a music person. " Through my participation in the UNA jazz band, I beBeve I have helped to maintain the jazz band ' s reputation of excel- lence, " he said of his contribution to the university.

She has served as the treasurer and president of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority and has also been a Golden Giri and Student Government Association senator.

" She is also a member of the Order of Omega. Golden Girl Rhonda Maxwell is pleased to say that she has con- tributed to the university. " I think serving as a Golden Giri has been my most significant contribution to the university because of the responsibility I have to represent UNA in a positive and professional way to prospective students and other visitors, " said Maxwell.

She is cui rently the Diorama ' s executive editor. But Palmer ' s college memorie include more than being the yearbook editor.

" UNA is a university where everyone has a chance to g« involved, " she said. " It ' s not the color of your skin that gets you i an organization or activity. It ' s what the person has on the insid which will reflect on the outside. " Simpson has also been involved in the Student Govemmer Association, as treasurer of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, and as hea resident of Powers Hall. Karen V. Stewart says that she did not limit her activities o campus, but she became involved as much as she could.

And he has spent the past two years of his life with the Ascenc ing Voices, once a well-known organization on campus. " I was abi to have an input in reorganizing it, " said Stewart. " It Is now carryin the reputation that was once given to it. " Tracey Wimbcrly cannot say that her achievements have bee few and far between.

However, sometimes organizations are able to broaden their horizons by attending out- of-town conventions and seminars. ALPHA CHI Adding up the Miles The members of Alpha Chi, the campus account- ing club, were responsible for adding a little more color to homecoming fes- tivities by holding the annual sale of the tradi- tional yellow chrysanthe- mum corsages. The money raised from this activity helped pay for the group ' s trip to Atlanta, Ga. Like many other organi- zations. Alpha Chi annu- ally takes a trip to increase member interest. This year, the group travelled to Atlanta. Adviser Earl Evans said, " The trip was very educa- tional. The students visited two or three places of interest to accountants. " The group also visited the accounting department of a local manufacturer and planned a spring trip to Chicago.

PH I BETA LAMBDA The Business of Success Enthusiasm fills the room anytime Phi Beta Lambda adviser Donna Yancey talks about the organization designed for business students. It is no wonder, either; the group has had a very successful year. Like many campus organizations, Phi Beta Lambda was continuously busy with various projects, such as welcome back pizza parties at the start of each semester and a well- attended Personnel Manager ' s Panel in the spring. The most notable accomplishment for the group, however, was its great success at the state competition where aU eight participants placed either first, second, or third. " We also carried five first place winners to Washington, D.C. and won first place in the nation in impromptu speaking, " said Yancey. Phi Beta Lambda ' s members are not strangers to success, either. " We have won every year that we have attended state competition, " said Yancey, " and we have entered it at least the last six or seven years. " What makes the group ' s success even more impres- sive is the fact that the competition is over- whelming. " They are competing against other colleges and universities in the state, even larger ones such as Auburn and Alabama, " Yancey sakl. " Despite this, we still had the most first place winners in the state.

However, two groups on campus held activities hit could hardly be con- ridered average. ALPHA E PSILON RHO On the Air The broadcasting sod- My of Alpha Epsilon Rho dedicated to promoting InceleiKe in broadcasting, , and joumabsm. The society participates in the same type of activities that most other organizations do. such as sending delegates to conventions and honoring outstanding members at awards ceremonies. However, AERho has the distinction of aUowing student ' s actual hands-on experience in their field of study, something few dubs are able to do. This is accomplished through " station take-overs. " " Station take-over really sounds ominous, " said adviser Dr. Ed Foote, " but it isn ' t. Students go in [to a radio station] for a day or part of a day and run the station. They seD advertise- ments, run programs, and fill In for the DJs. " Dr. Foote added that the broadcasting students learn a lot from the experience. " In theory, it sounds difficult, but actually, we get bts of support from the station personnel. They help write commercials and they ' re always stand- ing by to do whatever they can to help, " Dr. Foote said. AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY Chemical Action According to American Chemk:al Society Student Affiliates Presklent Teresa Frazier, the group " strives to increase the knowledge and interest of its members by utilizing a wide variety of sources to present infor- mation that lies outside the realm of normal course work. " She added that organi- zation " is designed to bring students together for enter- tainment and encourage- ment. " Keeping this in mind, the Student Affiliates set out to become more involved with the campus and community. One of their goals was to present a program for the community about " a chemical issue of current public concern, " said Frazier. Abo, in an effort to pro- mote inter-organizational activities, the Student Affili- ates challenged Beta Beta Beta, the science honor society, to a volleyball game. ACS Adviser Dr. Michael Moeller sakl, The picnk: went wonderfully. Tri-Beta supplied the food and dkl the cooking for us. " As for the volleybaU match, Moeller said, " It was a hard -fought battle, but we managed to take two out of three games. " ip 3. isirk .UnM», . Val«teH«niy. - 1V«f». ■;rphy. ack Row.

President Kim Weems explained, " Alpha Lambda Delta ' s officers are sopho- mores and are therefore better able to assist our incoming freshmen and encourage them to do their best. " Alpha Lambda Delta is a comprehensive honor society open to students in all fields of study. In order to encourage students of all interests it offers the Jo Anne Trow Award, which recognizes sophomore scholarship . The society also offers a Book Award to the gradu- ating senior with the highest cumulative GPA. Junior Adviser Leah Holt said of Alpha Lambda Delta, " It ' s one of only two honor societies you can be a member of before your junior year, so it gives you recognition early in your academic career. " Best of the Best PH KAPPA PH I The honor society of Phi Kappa Phi has one of the largest memberships of any organizatio n, with 150 active members on campus and another 250 members in the Shoals area. The society, according to President James Bumey, aims to " promote the pursuit of excellence in all fields of study. " " Phi Kappa Phi is the only organization on campus that is dedicated to promoting scholarship that cuts across all content areas, " said Bumey. The society induci members twice a year o the basis of good charactt and outstandin scholarship.

HONORARIES S u n f riiing; and riiftmetic Two honoraries are working to promote the three Rs By Tara Whittle and Ashley Savage Kappa Mu Epsilon and Sigma Tau Delta are doing more than just recognizing academically superior stu- dents in the math or English field. Both of these societies are working to promote their studies as much as possible. KAPPA M U EPSILON Adding Interest One of the primary pur- poses of Kappa Mu Epsi- lon is to instill in its members " an appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics, " according to adviser Dr. Pat Roden. THE SOFT GLOW of candles helps illuminate the room In the Kennedy-Douglass Art Center as Sigma Tau Delta Initiates its new members. The society inducts qualified students each fall and spring. (Photo by Rob Martindale) The group is also devoted to recognizing outstanding students and increasing faculty-student interaction. Roden said that the group attended a regional convention and the officers travelled to the national convention at Winthrop College in Rock Hill, S.C. However, the bulk of Kappa Mu Epsilon ' s activi- ties have involved prepar- ing to host the society ' s national convention in 1991. Everything from arranging for hotel accomodations and ban- quet facilities to printing tee shirts and planning a proper Southern menu must be done to prepare for the convention. Roden said, " This is the first time the convention has come to the Deep South, so we ' re really going to try to make a good impression. We ' re expecting from 225 to 250 undergraduate math honor students, along with some faculty, to attend. " s TAU G M DE A LTA Literary Ambition According to adviser Dr. Patricia Chandler, " Sigma Tau Delta ' s purpose is to promote and reward high academic achievement in the study of English lan- guage and literature and to foster a sense of collegial- ity among students specializing in, or otherwise interested in, the study of literature. " During the year STD participated in activities on and off campus. In the spring STD was a co-sponsor of the UNA Writer ' s Conference. This event brought writers and publishers to the campus to speak to students on careers or publishing. During the fall, mem- bers participated in the Florence Renaissance Faire. Members took on roles of the " Fair Damsel in distress " and the " Evil Knight. " Disguised as Geoffrey Chaucer, the also sold Coins of the Realm. Also in the fall, Sigma Tau Delta members served as ushers and ticket-sellers for the performance ol Shakespeare ' s " Corned;, of Errors, " performed oti campus by the Nortli Carolina Shakespeare Festival. An annua! tradition ol Sigma Tau Delta is the Silver Pen Award. The award is named for the long-time sponsor of STD, Professor Emeritus Lind- sey Stricklin . It is awarded to a freshman whose research paper for English 112 is best written. V 190 AUTHOR LARRY BROWN turns to answer a reacWt quMdon wMc fellow writer Vicky Covington autographs books for (mw.

These four honor societies are dedicated to recognizing this scholastic achievement. ALPHA KAPPA DELTA Socially Aware Dr. Jerry Miley said of Alpha Kappa Delta, " It ' s an academic honor society designed to promote an interest in the fields of sociology and criminal justice, research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition. " Dr. Miley, the society ' s adviser, added that to be eligible for initiation, which takes place each spring, PHI ALPHA THETA-Front Row; Damon Manders, Deona Lindsey, Sandra Ellis, Allison Sigler, Leah Holt, Shem Dicus, D avid Bcnry, Krisd Chandler.

Students must " be at least a junior with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and have com- pleted at least four courses in sociology and criminal justice. " DELTA TAU KAPPA Social standard Hassan Abdul-Hadi, professor of sociology, is the adviser to Delta Tau Kappa. DTK is the interna- tional social science honor society. Abdul-Hadi listed the society ' s primary purpose as the promotion of aca- demic achievement. Membership in the soci- ety is by invitation only and is decided on the basis of scholastic standing. Abdul-Hadi said, " A student must be a major or minor in one of the social sciences, must be a junior or a senior, and must have a " B " average in all course- work completed. " PHI ALPHA Social Success The central goals of the Xi Chapter of the Phi Alpha National Social Work Honor Society are to enrich social work excel- lence and encourage research in the field of social work. Obviously, the group is doing something right. Dr. Murali Nair, the group ' s adviser, said that in each of their past two years, a local Phi Alpha member has received one of only three national scholarships given by the society. A chapter remains active nationally in Phi Alpha. In recent years, the chapter has had more stu- dent research papers accepted for presentation than any other university. In the past year alone, five chapter members presented research papers at international confer- ences in Peru and the Netherlands. One member, Brenda Hicks, received recognition outside the society ' s ranks. Hicks won second place in the National Social Science Association with an essay written for Dr. Nair ' s Social Policy class. Her paper is to be published in the " National Social Science Review. " PHI ALPHA TH ETA Historically Honored Rho Beta is the campu chapter of Phi Aiphi Theta, the history bono society.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA The Play ' s the Thing Promoting acting in a theatre setting is the pur- pose of the Zeta Rho chap- ter of Alpha Psi Omega. President Jason Braly said, " I feel that Alpha Psi Omega is growing stronger and will soon be a rein- forcement in the expansion of theatre at UNA. " Adviser Jim Davis listed participation in university productions as the group ' s primary purpose. Apparently, the group has worked hard at fulfill- ing this purpose. They per- formed in " The Crucible, " which Braly said was " a success, " and " A Midsum- mer Night ' s Dream, " which was performed to full houses. Davis said that in the future the group plans to not only participate in theatre productions, but in Step Sing as well. TAU BETA SIGMA Sound of Success According to Tau Beta Sigma President Amy Nelson, membership in the society is " limited exclu- sively to those persons affiliated with the Univer- sity of North Alabama Band. " The society works to " promote the existence and welfare of collegiate bands, honor outstanding members, develop leader- ship, and provide a meaningful and worth- while social experience, " said Nelson. The members of Tau Beta Sigma have kept themselves busy with projects like rewriting the organization ' s constitution, catering receptions for the band, and raising money by holding the State Band Competition and Solo and Ensemble for high school TAU BETA SIGMA— Front Row: Kristy Morrison, Julie O ' Brien, Trade Champion.

TAU EPSILON KAPPA Behind the Scenes When people attend plays and other types of performances, they always notice the artistic aspect of theatre. What they rarely realize is that there are technical people behind the scenes that make it possible for performers to render their art. Many times, these people are members of Tau Epsilon Kappa. Tau Epsilon Kappa is the national honor socie that recognizes excellenc in the field of technic theatre. According to Presidei Myles Ryder, members Tau Kappa Epsilon wei responsible for the techr cal aspects of the pla; " A Midsummer Night Dream " and " The Cruc ble, " as well as the Mi UNA pageant and Stt Sing.

Ml SetchfieU 195 HONORARIES Honorable efforis Two groups are doing their part to make the world a better place By Tara Whittle and Ashley Savage All honor societies pro- mote excellence in aca- demics or leadership, but how many of them can say that they are actively work- ing to make the world a better place to live? The members of Beta Beta Beta and Kappa Omicron Nu can be proud to say that they are doing just that. BETA BETA BETA Protecting the Future Not only does Beta Beta Beta promote interest in biology and stimulate interest in research, they also are trying to help the environment. Tri-Beta was involved in recycling the aluminum cans around campus. " We have collecting containers in several loca- tions for cans and recycle- able aluminum, " said adviser Paul Yokley. " This project has been going on for two years and we think it is useful in several ways, including developing the habit as students to recycle rather than add to solid waste volume. " Beta Beta Beta sold football programs at all regular home games. Money from this was used for the scholarship endow- ment fund. Tri-Beta has established a scholarship fund in excess of $12,000. Three scholarships are offered each semester: one of $250, one $150 and one $100. " Beta Zeta Chapter of Beta Beta Beta has been an active group since being chartered in 1953 on this campus, " said Yokley. " Several hundred students who were members have distinguished themselves as physicians, dentists, Ph.D.s and professional people. We are very proud of our history and hope to continue to be active in many ways here at the university. " KAPPA OMICRON NU Matter ot Ethics The society of Kappa Omicron Phi merged with Omciron Nu last spring to form Kappa Omicron Nu. The group, which recognizes excellence among home economics majors and minors, listed as one of its goals to " follow the national pro- gram of work. " Dr. Jean Dunn, the organization ' s adviser. said, " Last spring oi national project was ' Wri Across the Curriculun This was a program develop writing skills.

We also held a voter registration in the University Center. " We received speakers at our meetings from the campaigns of Bud Cramer, Paul Hubbert and Senator Howell Heflin. " Wilson explained the goals of the Young Democrats. " Our goak include the promotion of a politically active and conscious com- munity. There is always a certain amount of apathy involved in the publfc ' s association with politics, " he saki.

" 203 INTEREST Qaining ground Two new organizations iiave found their places on campus By Tara Whittle and Chris Creel Getting recognition as an organization takes hard work and time. This year two groups took the time and worked to become new organizations on campus.

Once the year got into full swing, however, the BSA picked up speed. " Just getting organized and becoming an official campus organization was an accomplishment, " said DeJarnett. Before the group was even reorganized as an official campus organiza- tion, it raised over $250 in the Big Brothers Big Sis- ters Bowl for Kid ' s Sake. Since receiving official recognition, the BSA has participated in almost every campus event from Festiversity to the Homecoming parade. All of this is done " to unite not only African- American students, but UNA students as a whole, " said DeJarnett. The BSA hopes to form the Council of Black Stu- dent Organizations. According to DeJamett, this would give black organizations on campus a more collective voice. STUDENT ADVENTURE G A M E R S ' ALLIANCE Off and Running The Student Adventure Gamers ' Alliance is one of the new student organiza- tions formed in the fall. According to SAGA President, Doug Young, " SAGA is an umbrella organization for individuals interested in adventure gaming. " Young said that the process of becoming an officially university- recognized organization was much easier than he thought it would be. " Everyone at th university was extremel helpful, " said Young " Since this is our fir; semester we are still in a: embryonic stage but w have accomplished ou main purpose. We hav established a means c contact for all of th gamers on campus. " Alex Newborn, thi SAGA public relation officer, said, " I ' m glad w finally got organized. W wanted and needed a clul for gamers for a long time so I ' m glad we have oni now. " 204 y BSA MEMBER Greg Waddm tiku part in the rap conteH diahiB Alcohol Awareness Week.

Two organizations on campus are helping their members make some deci- sions on careers. This year these groups are giving members some ideas by taking field trips and spon- soring guest speakers. FASHION FORUM Fashion Conscious " The Fashion Forum is an organization to provide fashion merchandising and interior design students an avenue to broaden their knowledge base by means of educational speakers and workshops, " said President Jennifer Hill. " We promote scholarship and Ccireer choices in the fashion and interior fields. " CIS— Front Row: Melissa Gean, Christi Borden, Brian Killen. Back Row; Chanel Williams, Tim Tankersley, Sydney Rutland, Hilary Hurley, Charles Briegel. Membership, however, is not restricted only to fashion or interior design majors. Anyone who is interested in the activities and functions of the club may join. Members were involved with all departmental activities such as Career Day and the SHEA Fall Leadership Conference, both of which were hosted by the university. " This year we concen- trated on careers, " said adviser Jane Wilson. " We had executives from Paris- ians talk to the club about the different careers offered in the fashion world. " In October, interested members of the Fashion Forum went on a market trip to Atlanta to visit Southeastern Fabrics. This trip provided interested members with experience through visiting profes- sionals. COMPUTER INFORMATION SYSTEMS CLUB Computer Literate The purpose of the CIS club is to introduce new and existing members to a programming environment through seminars on programming and employer needs. Also, the club took field trips to surrounding busi- nesses to get a first hand look at computer hardware and software types being used in the real world. Any student who is interested in the field of computer information sys- tems can become a member of the CIS Club. According to Tim Tankersley, public relations officer, the goals for the CIS Club are " to visit some of the surrounding compa- nies and let members see that many different types of programming applica- tions being used; also, to send programming teams to the DPMA student con- ference in Nashville. " Tankersley said, " We hope, with alumni support, that we can start a CIS scholarship to be awarded to beginning freshmen majoring in Computer Information Systems. " Some of the club ' s activities for fall included visiting the Super- Computer Center in Huntsville. Six members of the group went to Nash- ville to compete in a programming competition at the DPMA Student Conference. The CIS club also joined other business clubs tc design and enter a yard decoration for this year ' s Homecoming exercises. Some of the specific activities that the CIS cluh organized included con- ducting a seminar on the mainframe ' s operating system and commands in the computer lab. The club also organized a pizza party for members and a golf tournament a1 Sky Harbor Golf Course. To promote scholarship and participation in club activities, the CIS Club gives a $100 scholarship each semester to club members who fulfill neces- sary requirements, such as attending 60 percent of all meetings and outside activities. The scholarship is good for books and supplies a1 the campus bookstore. 206 PROPER COSMETKS vf a tan can be the best accestoiy (cr any outfit.

" said Mauldin. adviser to the group. The group encourages closer ties among students who have to drive five miks or more to get to campus. After a period of inac- tivity, the group was re- established again in the faD. During the September SGA Leadership Retreat, a group of interested stu- dents got together and reorganized the Commuter Organization Another purpose of the Commuter Organization is to provide a place in the University Center for com- muter students. " We try to provide a home away from home, " said Mauldin. " It ' s a place for them to go and relax in between classes. We also have a kitchen that Is con- nected to the commuter ' s bunge that we share with the Re-Entering Student Lounge. " RESA Adults Only " We provide a support group for people re- entering the educational system, to alleviate anxi- ety, and provide needed information and compan- ionship, " said Gladys Allen, president of the Re- Entering Student Organization. RESA is made up of about 100 students who are 25 or older. One goal of the organi- zation is " to become more visible on campus, " said Allen. During the spring semester, RESA partici- pated in the United Way drive to help tornado vic- tims in Huntsville. RESA, in cooperation with the Student Devcbp- ment Center, hosts Re- SOAR every year. " We found that the needs of the aduk students are different from the needs of the 17- or 18- ycar-old student, " said Dr. Paul Baird, adviser of RESA. " We felt that they needed a different type of orientation program where they can get information and meet other adults. " The orientation pro- gram lasts for only one night and both advisement and registration for the upcoming semester are completed at it. " RESA hosts a recep- tion at the orientation, " said Baird . " This gives the new students the opportu- nity to hear experiences from the current students and to ask questions. " In September, members attended the SGA Leader- ship Retreat. Also in the fall, the group hekl an open house. RESA also provides a lounge in the University Cente r for members. It provkdes a place for stu- dents to relax or eat lunch and to meet with other students. RE-ENTERING STUDENTS ASSOCIATION -Front Row Gcnene Farley. Gladys Allen, Brenda Bales. Bonnie Raddm.

Keller is home to stu- dent publications, and everyone from the year- book editors to a Flor-Ala sports editor can be found running through the hails, searching for a photograph or preparing a layout for a deadline. These unsung heroes are not the cool, calm, col- lected characters viewed on campus. Behind the scenes there is enough chaos to put registration to shame. DIORAMA Deadline Madness includes eight people working with a small volunteer staff. During the fall and spring semesters this group gets together and manages to put out a newspaper every week. Compared to the Dio- rama, The Flor-Ala has about four times as many deadlines. The staff can be found, during the weeks school is in session, work- ing Monday through Tues- day night laying out the paper that will be released on Thursday. " It is a lot of work, but it is also fun, " said Execu- tive Editor Leah Holt. " We ' re always teasing each other and trading insults, which gets us odd looks from students passing through the hall on their way to class. If we were serious about half the The Diorama consists of things we say, we ' d be at be found working in their office every day, and when deadlines are pending, on weekends and even nights. Deadlines are the most chaotic times! Everyone is searching for the perfect photo to accompany a story or finishing a story that had to be written at the last minute. In fact, if it weren ' t for caffeine-filled soft drinks, not to mention coffee, deadlines would probably not be met. " I ' ve become addicted to soft drinks again since I started working here as executive editor, " said Palmer. " I found out that I ' m not the only person who is slowly but surely losing her mind since I started on the yearbook, " added Whittle. having so many responsi- bilities and doing a job I enjoy have really made me grow up, " explained Arthur Kirkby, associate editor for The Flor-Ala.

The executive staff of Executive Editor Anissa Palmer, Associate Editor Tara Whittle and Assistant Ashley Savage can usually THE FLOR-ALA All in the Family The Flor-Ala news- paper ' s executive staff each other ' s throat. Working on either the Diorama or The Flor-Ala enables students to gain first-hand experience in the world of mass communica- tions. " Meeting deadlines. Excellence in Communications The Society for Collegiate Journalists is an organiza- tion that encourages excel- lence in mass communi- cations. Membership in SCJ is open to students who have a superior grade point average and who have served at least one year working with either the Diorama or The Flor-Ala. The national journalism honor society ' s main activity is the publication of the SOAR newspaper in the summer for incoming students. The local SCJ chapte yearly awards a joumaiisn plaque to a member of on ' of the student publication; staffs. " Actually, Dick Biddii from WOWL-TV here ii Florence first got in touci with us about the establish ment of an award. Mr Biddle very generoush provides the plaque to bi awarded (at our sprin; initiation ceremony) to th( outstanding student jour nalist from the year, " saic Brenda J. Hill, SCJ am student publication adviser. The recipient at thi spring initiation was thei Flor-Ala Executive Edito Linda East. " It ' s nice to have some thing tangible to give on( of our student journalists, ' said Hill.

However, two groups have Mtr own ways of promot- giaith. ASCENDING VOICES Snging Praises Marcus Stewart, direc- »r of the Ascending bices said, " Our purpose to spread gospel music noughout the campus m1 community Most of we want to up lift the name of Jesus Christ. " Besides adding three new advisers (Dr. Lisa MirK r, Jacqueline Winston and Lori Woods), the Ascending Voices added the Reverend Ccdric Per- kins to serve as spiritual leader. " We brought Reverend Peritins In to help us accomplish our goal of becoming a more spiritu- ally oriented organization, " said Stewart. They also added Joseph StaDworth as keyboardist. In the spring the group travelled to Courtland to appear at a gospel music festival. The program was taped and televised by TBS. During the fall the Ascending Votees travelled to Tuscaloosa to sing at the Bama Theatre. Many renowned choirs from around the country also performed. The group also visited Mitchell Hollingsworth, an area nursing home. BAH A ' I CLUB Keep the Faith For many, the ideas of work! peace and unity conjures up images of tong-haircd fbwer children and the ever-popular ' Td Like to Teach the WorW to Sing " soda commercials. However, to the mem- bers of the Baha ' i Club, world peace means work. The club promotes world peace by making the com- munity a more caring place to live through activities such as sponsoring prejudtee reduction work- shops and programs during Women ' s History Week, and participating in the area Martin Luther King Day celebrations. One event that the club members are most proud of is the candlelight vigil held in the amphitheater in observance of the World Summit for Children. Club sponsor Jacque- line Osborne said, " The candlelight vigil went won- derfuDy. We had some- where between 50 and 75 people participate. We asked for contributions and donated the money to UNICEF. " The event was truly far- reaching. Osborne said, " The vigil took place aO over the world that even- ing. About 85 countries participated. " The vigil was heki as a precursor to the WorU Summit for Children meet- ings that took place at the UN the following week. " The purpose was to call attention to the needs of the children. We want the world leaders to make the children their priority, " said Osborne. ICES— Front Row: D«wn Johnwn. Kim Hal. Cats Croon . C«lMlha Gay. Shtnl AltMna Shipiay. Badi Ram: Hanut SHwM t.

Sharon 213 RELIGIOUS aiififuiiy aciivc Three religious groups stay busy spreading the gospel By Chris Creel and Tara Whittle No one can deny that religious organizations are among the most active groups on campus. These three groups are definitely working to uphold this reputation. BAPTIST CAMPUS MINISTRIES Belief Oriented The Baptist Campus Ministries Building is a dominant sight near campus. Most students probably pass by it a couple of times a day on the way to class. There are lots of activi- ties which take place at the BCM and BCM Campus Minister Eddy Gamer said he wants everyone to stop by and get involved. BAPTIST CAMPUS MINISTRIES-Front Row: Eddy Gamer, Jennifer Spray, Kim Martin, Melissa Rains, Kala Weathcrby, Bill Tate, Gary Duck- etle, Ghad Grisham, Paul Orton, David Ballew, Michael Layfield, Jeff Taylor, Dcbra Jackson, Vicki Underwood, Amy Jon Bamett, Tonlse Partridge.

Back Row: Dana Winter, Missy Bailey, Laura Call, Chris Frye, Ron Hickman, Michael Rains, Dennis Willing- ham, Brian Forbes, Jeff BeD. Amy Lee, Sonya Lee. One activity the BCM is proud of is their moving service. " We helped stu- dents move into the dorms at the beginning of the semester, " said Gamer. The BCM also spon- sored a new student orien- tation dinner at the beginning of the semester. " During the fall semester we had a lot of activity during ' Welcome Week. ' These included a Coke Bust, an Ice Cream Fel- lowship, a Progressive Dinner and a Dinner Con- cert. We also participated in the Homecoming float and yard decoration con- tests, " said Gamer. The BCM is not all fun and games. The primary purpose of the BCM is to act as a missions organiza- tion, and members of the group take part in missions activities on campus and in the Shoals community. " We participate in jail ministries, nursing home and children ' s ministries and the Habitat for Humanity Program. We attempt mission activities through summer missions programs, local missions, short term mission projects and financial support. We also sponsor Bible study and Discipleship Leader- ship training groups, " explained Gamer. CATHOLIC CONNECTION Revitalizing Faith The Catholic Connec- tion is one of several groups on campus that have recently reorganized in response to student interest. Adviser Dr. Patricia Chandler said the Catholic Connection is designed to " promote the spiritual and social development of the students. It provides con- nections between Catholic students and St. Joseph Church, among the stu- dents themselves, and between the students and God. " Chandler added that " Catholic students have opportunities to know and support each other and they grow deeper in their relationship with God " because of the organization. CHRISTIAN STUDENT CENTER Spread the Word Amy High, one of tl 75 members of the Chri tian Student Center, sa that the group ' s purpose " to spread God ' s wo: through campus ministr through students ar activities. " The CSC, which Hie said is not a " run-of-th mill organization, " wants involve as many studen as possible in the campi ministry. Some of the activitii they have planned accomplish this year a retreats, performances the Life Singers ar Drama Troupe, and smj group Bible studies. High said, " Ar achievement in the spree of God ' s word would I considered an accor plishment. " 214 AS A GUEST SPEAKER.

EPISCOPAL D LTERN ATI VE Fun with a Cause When most people link about having fun, Ity think about parties at lake and getting )getheT for lunch. The Episcopal Akema- ve has fun doing those things, but according to Julia McCutchcn, sponsor of the group, they also have fun singing Easter hymns at MitcheD HoDings- worth Nursing Home, Bowling for Kids ' Sake, participating in Festiversity, and having Biblical dis- cussk)ns. The organization, which is made up of about 15 members, meets each Tuesday night at Trinity Episcopal Church. One major event of the year, however, took place on a Saturday morning. The group ran a Christmas gift shop for charity. Children couU buy gifts, By David King donated by members, for their parents and even have them wrapped. Each gift cost between five cents and 25 cents and ranged from candle holders to placemats. The profits were used to sponsor two children on the Salvation Army Angel Tree. " The Episcopal Alterna- tive sponsors the shop every year and we look forward to working with the children and helping the underprivileged, " McCutchen said. WESLEY FOUNDATION Winning Beliefs Who won the Homecoming yard display from ' 87 to ' 89 and finished second in the most recent competition? The Wesley Foundatkjn is proud to say that they did. However, according to Lori Delano, treasurer, they do a lot more than just decorate yards. The Wesley Foundatton wants to promote Christian friendships, spiritual growth, and daily commu- nity involvement. They meet every week for Bible study, and according to Delano, they have been having some very uplifting WESLEY FOUNDATION - Front Row: Joy Muse. Sl eri Sanders. Denlie Harden.

" " We want to get away from all the ' sweetheart stuff and get down to what Valentine ' s Day is really aU about— chocolate! " Delano said. This year the event was special because Bill Engle stuffed a record 13 giant puffed marshmalk)ws into his mouth, according to Delano.

The Arts Commit- tee will write and direct plays among other things. These plays are open to all university students. The Disabled Students Committee was also added. This committee addresses the specific needs of the disabled stu- dents on campus. The Volunteerism Committee was formed to foster community volun- teerism among students. The ultimate goal is to generate more interest in the SGA as well as having students get involved in every area of university life. " Governor Hunt has a board called the Student Volunteer Board, " explained SGA Secretary Mike Ward. The governor wants all the universities in the state to start their own volunteer boards. We are even looking into the pxjs- sibility of starting a class on volunteerism. " The SGA co-sponsored the second annual Leader- ship Retreat. A diverse group of 60 students attended the meeting. The purpose of the retreat was to foster stu- dent involvement on campus. Topfcs ranged from a Day Care Center to park- ing to unity among stu- dents. " This year ' s retreat went real well, " said Ward. " The retreat really gets us (the SGA] started on the right foot each fall. " PI BETA SIGMA Politically Aware Pi Beta Sigma is open to students who attended Boys State while in high school. Its purpose is to promote leadership and patriotism among the members as well as campus wide by promoting voter registration among students as well as com- munity service. During election years. Pi Beta Sigma holds voter registration drives. The purpose of these drives is to urge students to partk:i- pate in national and state elections.

" Our delegates attended planning sessions to work with students from other universities in organizing educational and social pro- grams for resklents, " said Bell. Bell added, " Response has been pretty good so far. There are still a lot of people who don ' t know what we ' re here for, but we ' re working on that.

University Players adviser Jim Davis said of the organization, " All people who are involved in campus theatre produc- tions are automatically members. " The purpose of the organization is to promote the theatre and participate in all aspects of the univer- sity ' s theatre program. " We had a large number of participants this year because of the nature of the productions, " said Davis. " We did two large cast shows. " The shows included " The Crucible " by Arthur Miller and " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " by William Shakespeare, both of which were directed by Davis. Some other activities the group has planned are to participate in Step Sing, in more productions and in student one act plays. COMMERCIAL MUSIC ASSOCIATION Mal ing the Music The Commercial Music Association, an organiza- tion for commercial music majors and students with an interest in the music business, has been plagued by periods of inactivity. However, the group was reorganized in the fall. President Jay Webb said, " There was a lack of interest [in the club] within the commercial music majors. " It was this lack of interest that caused the group to become inactive last spring. However, according to Webb, " New students came in and found the there was a need for som sort of group that the could be involved in t possibly enhance the commercial musi education. " When this happenec " we began to have mee ings again, " said Webb. In the future, the Con- mercial Music Associatio hopes " to become active i university events an establish a reputable imag in the eyes of the schoc and its administration, said Webb. 220 HELENA AND HERMIA (Jude Robedeau and KrisUe Rivers) get in a tangle during the spring production of " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " Both Robedeau and Rivers are members at the Univer Players by vMuc of p r- tidpatlng in univenlty theablcal produdtons.

" We are the only student organization with such a training program. " Aside from visiting high schools and giving tours as an aid for recruiting stu- dents, the Golden Girls and Ambassadors are involved with many activi- ties on campus. During the spring they hosted a birthday party for Leo II. They also served as escorts for the Supreme Court Justices who visited the campus for the Alabama Supreme Court Session. In the fall they hosted Discovery Day for visiting seniors and Dr. Roy S. Stevens ' farewell recep- tion. At the home football games, the Golden Girb and Ambassadors helped guests find their seats and passed around banks to raise money for Leo II. " Besides the many activities and events we host, each member of the group donates one hour each week to the Office of Recruitment, " said Cope. " During this ' on-call ' hour, we are available to give personal tours to visitors to the campus. " This year two big changes occurred for the Golden Girls and Ambassadors. Their adviser changed from Jennifer Tucker to Kim Mauldin, and since they are officially the presi- dent ' s organization, their " big boss " changed from Dr. Robert I . Guillot to President Robert L. Potts. PH I MEGA ALPHA Serving the Community The service sorority. Omega Phi Alpha, enjoys helping the community. " We provide the com- munity and campus with friendship, leadership and service, " said Andrea Sigle, recording secretary. In the spring, the group held a cbtfnes drive for the Lauderdale Colbert County Attention Homes. In February, they spon- sored a Rock-A-Thon which was held in the University Center. The members also went to Lucy ' s Branch Resort and Marina to plan their rush. During the fall, Omega Phi Alpha distributed yellow ribbons throughout campus and wrote letters to the soldiers in support of the troops overseas. The group also donated $25 to the Fraternal Order of Police, and members held a candlelight vigil on campus for under- privileged chiklren. During Thanksgiving Omega Phi Alpha adopted a family and provided a holiday dinner for them. At Christmas, the mem- bers adopted an angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree.

One aspect of the pro- am is the Jazz Band, lis is one of several ccialized off-shoots of t barKi that alow student usidans a wider range of jrfomiance experience Other groups that per- this function are the Percussion Ensemble, the Brass Ensemble, and the Woodwind Ensemble. Each is composed of select students and is directed by a faculty member with experience and interest in that particular area of music. Another segment of the band program is the Con- cert Band. This organiza- tion strives to present the finest in performance of both traditional and con- temporary music. The final facet of the university band program is the " Pride of Dixie " March- ing Band. It is comprised of not only musicians, but the Majorettes and the Lionettes dance team. These groups work together to present the uni- fied show that everyone sees at football games. Band director Dr. Edd Jones believes this kind of cooperation is necessary. " For a successful band program you need musi- cianship first. Then you need dedication and cooperation. This march- ing season was a huge suc- cess because we met those criteria. " During the summer, marching band members were given the opportunity to perform in the Jessica Lange movie " Blue Sky " which was filmed in Selma. " There was a need for a military band in the movie, " said Dr. Jones. " The young lady in charge of casting was a UNA graduate, so she thought of us first when casting the extras. About half of the people used were current students and the other half were UNA alumni.

These groups are glad to lend a hand or a heart-felt cheer By Chris Creel and Tara Whittle Picture a football game without anyone to lead an encouraging cheer when the team is trailing behind in the score. Or imagine how an out-of-town foot- ball fan would feel as he searched the unfamiliar Braly Municipal Stadium for his seat. Luckily, these scenarios are only figments of the imagination, because the cheerleaders and the NCAA Division II champi- onship game hostesses ensure that they never happen. CHEERLEADERS Sporting Spirit According to Coach Larry Thompson, the cheerleaders ' purpose is " to promote total university spirit. This is not limited to athletic events but includes the university as whole. " The cheerieaders partic- ipate in all of the football games and ail home basketball games. They are also always a contender for NCAA Division II regional and national honors and recognition. The cheerleaders were also affected by organiza- tional changes on campus. They were moved from the Office of Student Affairs to the athletic department. Coach Thompson became the adviser for the cheer- leaders in July. Each summer the cheerleaders attend the United Cheerleaders Association Camp at Middle Tennessee University.

The camp is held for one week each July, " Thompson explained. " The camp includes sections on all aspects of cheering. This includes technique, group perfor- mance, and stunts. Each summer the UNA squad has been chosen as one of the best groups at the camp, " said Thompson. NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP HOSTESSES Serving Spirit The City of Florence has been fortunate to have hosted the NCAA Div ision II Championship football game for the past few years. Every year, the Cham- ber of Commerce holds interviews on campus to select women between the ages of 19 and 23 to serve as hostesses for the event. Hostess Coordinator Virginia Gilluly said, " The girls were chosen on the basis of personality, enthusiasm, sincerity, lan- guage usage and persua- sion, willingness to serve, and attractiveness. " By attractiveness, I don ' t mean we picked only the cutest girls. We looked for things like neatness, posture, poise, and just an overall outgoing attitude. " The 43 hostesses had a full schedule of activities the week of the game. " The girls ' official duties included serving as the offi- cial hostesses for the garni welcoming the teams ; they arrived, attending social held for the playe and participating in tf Florence Christmas parac to promote the game said Gilluly. Hostess Tabitha Adcoc said, " It was a lot of hai work, but it was worth i This was my third year i serve as a hostess, and think it was the best ye; ever. " Adcock hopes to woi as a hostess again ne: year. " We all worked ext hard as a group to help g the contract for Florenc again.

Casteelj 230 BEING GREEK Cht ties that hind Fraternities and sororities provide a bond By Angle Gresham that will last a lifetime The Greek Alphabet— do you live by this alphabet or is it just " Greek " to you? According to Panhcllcnic Adviser Kim Mauldin, X)r»ly ten percent of stu- dents on campus are Greek. There are approx- imately 5,600 students tnroOed and an average of SOD are Greek. " That means 90 percent t not associated with the Greek system. Most faculty and students are aware of Iw Greeks on campus, but many do not fully under- hand what their purpose is. Because of stereotypes found in movies about col- lege Kfe, it is easy to get the wrong impressions of sororities and fraternities. In movies and television shows, fraternities and sororities appear to be groups of wild college stu- dents who party and never study. Many people also believe that Greeks are just social cliques and do not associate with anyone else. But what people fail to realize is that being a Greek is much more than joining a club— it is a way of life The Greeks are leaders on campus. They are a group of individuals who are involved in clubs, honor societies, student government, athletics and the fine arts. Behind many organizations and events is a group of enthusiastic Greeks. Charities and fund raisers are also popular with Greeks They support such groups as United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ronald McDonald House, American Cancer Society and the Retarded Children ' s Association. The Greek System maintains an outstanding reputation on campus. It helps its members devekjp high standards, leadership skills, and true friendships that last forever. Wcndolyn Thomas, a member of Alpha Gamma Delta, said, " The Greek System gives me the opportunity to meet a var- iety of people. It is also a great way to get involved in other campus activities. Sisterhood, in a sense, means someone is always there for you, whether it is to talk or to go places. Being Greek is a terrific way of life. " But sororities and frater- nities aren ' t just all work. There is time for fun, too. Being a Greek gives a person an opportunity to meet many more people and to be involved in many more activities. Even though the Greek organizations vary in their names, they all have a common bond— being Greek. It is a bond that will last a lifetime.

During the next 75 tars. 80 other sororities nd fraternities became stabbshed throughout the tnited States. h wasn ' t until 1972 that |ie Greek system came to r campus. Former Panhellenic dviser Barbara Morgan id. " The university ed to open its doors the Greek system arxl nt several nation al chap- rs an invitation. Four rities and seven fratcr- s accepted. " The groups petitioned nationak for charters, and after they were granted, they had formal instaOatton banquets. " The first sororities were Alpha Delta Pi. Alpha Omicron Pi. Phi Mu. and Zcta Tau Alpha, Immedi- ately a PanheDcnic Coun- cil established itself and the sororities became a success on campus. The fraternities also started in much the same way. Alpha Tau Omega led the pack, then Phi Gamma Delta. Pi Kappa Alpha. Kappa Sigma. Lambda Chi Alpha, and Pi Kappa Phi foDowed in line. After they received their charters, the university provided a room for each fraternity in O ' Neal HaD where Guilkjt University Center now stands. The number of sororities on campus continued to grow, as Morgan explained. " A couple of years later, a group of about 25 girls wanted to start another chapter. They were not By Angle Gresham interested in the other four, " Morgan sakl. ' That ' s when Alpha Gamma Delta was brought to UNA. " In 1984. the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority began to have trouble with their membership. They did not have enough members and by mutual decision of the university administra- tion and National Chapter of AOPi, their local chap- ter was dissolved. A few fraternities had the same problem. Pi Kappa Phi and Lambda Chi Alpha lost their national charters simply because of a deaease in the number of members. " All folded because of membership reasons. " Morgan said. " It had noth- ing to do with behavior problems. The numbers were down as well as funds, so these chapters were just dismissed. " It wasn ' t long until a group of young men expressed interest in start- ing a new fraternity. The new fraternity was Sigma Alpha Epsilon. In 1985, when plans few- O ' Neal to be torn down and the new University Center to be built were in progress, a decision for the sororities to move to Powers Hall became final. " Not any of the Nationals would let the sororities build a house due to the small enrollment at UNA and the size of the chapters, " said Morgan. Alumni members of the groups met with the university administration and agreed to make a down payment on Powers Hall if the members would furnish and decorate the rooms. Fraternities, on the other hand, wanted their own houses. At first, they all rented or leased houses from the city. Then the university decided to estab- lish Fraternity Row. Kappa Sigma, the Pikes, and Sigma Chi buih new houses. Fiji, ATO, and SAE bought old homes near campus. This fall, Sigma Alpha Epsilon leased a different house across the street from Norton Auditorium. In 1980, the first black sorority, Delta Sigma Theta. came to campus, foIk wed by Alpha Kappa Alpha. A group of alum- nae started the new sorority. All that they had to do was to come to the campus and recruit new girls. The black fraternities started In the same way with a group of university alumni. Alpha Phi Alpha and Kappa Alpha PsI are the black fraternities that currently exist on campus. In 18 short years, the Greek community has become a very important part of campus life. " As young as it Is. It has produced a strong Intcr- fratemity Council and Pan- hellenic Council, " sakl Morgan. " I also think that the Greek system, even though in its early stages, speaks well of our students.

On his day. rushees visit aD our sorority rooms. The Kxxi was friendly, the wee was fast, and the tress was casual. When a group of ttshees enter a room, •ch girl expects to meet a member by whom she will be guided through the room. The purpose of the party is to acquaint the rushees with ail the members. Throughout the party, the members will cheer and sing sorority songs. Like all sorority rush par- ties, informal parties are timed to the exact second and no men or akoholic beverages are albwed. The second day was the Ice Water Tea, and each girl attended all four par- ties. The purpose of this day is for members to boast to the rushees about their sororities. Scrap- books, trophies, and jewelry decorate the rooms. Again, cheers and songs are heard from each room. The next evening is Theme Night, which many girls say is the most fun. Each girl can only attend three parties. At each party, members entertain the rushees with song and dance numbers. After this, each rushee nar- rows her choice of sorori- ties down to two. Meanwhile, each sorority makes decisions and chooses the girls that wouU benefit its chapter. The last evening was Preference Night. It is a very serious night for everyone. Rushees can only attend two parties. The members talk about the closeness they share with their sisters and all the things they do together. Everyone sings sorority songs, and there is a ceremony that explains the meaning of each sorority. After the rushees leave the last party, they write down their preference and go home, cross their fingers, and hope that their bids will be matched. Matching of bids, which are formal invitations to pledge a sorority, takes place on Bid Day. The alumni compare each girls preference to the sororities ' preference, and If they match, the girt receives a bid. Rush was very success- ful, according to Pan- hellenic Adviser Kim Mauklln. " It was the best rush ever! There were so many girls that went through, " Mauidin said. " The sorori- ties had to be more selec- tive. They emphasized high grades and high stan- dards over just a pretty face. " She also said that she was pleased that the Pan- heDenic Council worked so hard to unify the Greek system. " Everyone was rushing Greek Instead of just rush- ing sorority. " The day before fall classes began, a " Back to School Bash " came to the Memorial Amphitheater.

Cdking the fhdge All Greeks must go through a learning process By Mike Waid When frashnMn and fer students enter the (Biiv«iity each year, many ■ thtm look for opportu- ilBn to get Involved in kntvenMy and community itles. Some of these ..jents chooae to get ivolved in thest acttvMtes y going through the Qorous pledge process in wder to become a lumber of a fraternity or Qiority Each fall hundreds of ludents attend various mtemlty or sorority rush ries hoping that they receive a bid. Sarah Adkins, a sopho- member of Phi Mu, lid, " The bid process is omplicated. but each Mority and prospective pbdgt has a chance to get to know one another. " The pledge process nor- mally runs one semester k}ng for white fraternities and sororities; however, black fraternities and sorortttes have a somewhat dncient process for admit- ting new members. As of August, there is a new membership intake process among the predominantly black sororities and frater- nities. There will be no actual extended pledge process: instead, there will be ten days of educating the pledges about their prospective Greek organi- zation. After this period of time, the pledges will become members through initiatx}n. Exactly what is the pledge process? " The pledges undergo a learning process of the fraternity. " sakl Scott Mashbum. Inter- fraternity Council adviser. " They learn duties of officers and how to relate to other Greeks on campus, the university, and the nationals. " During the learning process, both fraternity and sorority pledges participate in university and commu- nity activities. The pledges also must keep study hours each week. Mashbum said, " It is very important to both fraternities and sororities that pledges keep their grades up. We realize that the pledges ' first pri- ority is to their academics. and we don ' t want their grades to suffer during pledging. " Pledges list many rea- sons for wanting to join a social fraternity or sorority Monica Robinson, Phi Mu pledge class treasurer, said, " I wanted to join a sorority when I came to UNA because I wanted to meet people and get involved. " Chuck Graham, a freshman pledge with Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, was caught by surprise. " When I came to UNA I hadn ' t planned on pledg- ing a fraternity, " said Graham, " but I met the brothers of Phi Gamma Delta and I liked them.

" I like the fact that during the pledge process there are certain activities bke ' Man-Mania ' that only the pledges get to do. We are able to meet more people by partkipating In these projects. " Although the Greek members of the eight fraternities and six sorori- ties only comprise about ten percent of the student population on campus, their many campus and community activities greatly enhance the well- being of the university. 237 GREEK WEEK yj king fun worthwhile Greek Week combines having fun with helping others Fraternities and sorori- ties have the reputation of only wanting to have fun and party. However, in addition to their other community activities, the Greek organizations get together each year during Greek Awareness Week and gather food for needy families. Paul Foster, a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, said, " Greek Awareness Week was held during the middle of November this year. The GREEK WEEK unites many sororities and fraternities as they compete as teams in relays on the baseball field. Representing Pi Kappa Alpha, Alpha Gamma Delta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon were Kenny Morris, Beth Rey- nolds, Nelson Graves, Pamie Evans and Steven Kilpatrick. (Photo by Scott Roberts) junior IFC and junior Pan- hellenic members sponsor it. " During Greek Aware- ness Week, the organiza- tions sponsor an event called Jail Bail. Alpha Delta Pi member and Pan- hellenic president Stephanie Moore explained exactly what Jail Bail is. " With Jail Bail each officer must bring canned food to get a member of their fraternity out of ' jail, ' " said Moore. By Mike Ward Kevin Jones, president of the Interfratemity Coun- cil, said that Jail Bail was successful. " We raised about 1,000 pounds of canned food for Safe Place, which is a United Way Agency. " Greek Awareness Week is also a time for the vari- ous Greek organizations to foster a spirit of togetherness. Scott Mashbum, Inter- fratemity Council adviser, said, " Greek Awareness Week benefits others less fortunate people, but it is also a time when the Greeks can get together and have fun. " The Greek organiza- tions also competed in mixed relays during the week of fun. " The rela y teams are mixed between the differ- ent sororities and fraterni- ties, " said Moore. " This activity fosters togethemess and unity because the fraternities and sororities are not competing against one another. " Will any activities hi added for next year? Mashbum said, " 1 arr not sure of the specific activities, but we will have the same ones as this yeai and a few others. " Being Greek is more than attending a few par- ties. During Greek Aware- ness Week each year the fraternities and sororities effectively combine having fun with serving the community. 238 lM U Inua % WAmNG PATIENTLY for a fraternity brother lo " bad him out durtr Jail Bail.

Sororities and fraternities alike put forth special efforts each year to help people with special needs. Two of the sororities that take part in philantropies and other special causes are Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Gamma Delta, joined by the Panhellenic Association. PANHELLENIC Taking Care of Others It would be correct to say that the Panhellenic Association is always taking care of others. Not only does the org anization serve as the governing body for the sororities, but it also reaches out to help others in many special ways. The philanthropy for Panhellenic is aimed toward fighting illiteracy, and the members raised the money in a romantic way during their LoUi- Gram Sale. " We did it the week before Valentine ' s Day, " said Panhellenic adviser Kim Mauldin. " Students went in the atrium of the Guillot University Center and paid $1.50 for a big lollipop. Panhellenic went through and distributed the lollipops to the campus boxes. " The students who bought the lollipops filled out cards specifying the names and campus boxes of the lucky recipients. Those who received the lollipops were girlfriends and boyfriends, secret pals, and best friends of the senders. According to Mauldin, the Southeast Panhellenic Conference which meets every year chose the philanthropy. All of the proceeds from Pan- hellenic ' s LoUi-Gram Sale went toward the fight against illiteracy. By Anissa Palmer ALPHA DELTA PI Doing Good with Canned Goods The sisters of Alpha Delta Pi waste no time when they know they have a cause to work for. The philanthropy for Alpha Delta Pi, chosen by the national organization, is to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides living quarters and food to eat for families of hospital patients. The sisters of ADPi collect money and canned goods for the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham that serves the Birmingham Children ' s Hospital. During Halloween, the ADPi sisters went trick-or- treating for canned goods and money for their philanthropy. " We got 500 cans of food, and with the help of McDonald ' s we raised 650 dollars, " said ADPi presi- dent Dawn Victor. The money goes to the nationals and then a lump sum check goes to the Ronald McDonald House. The canned goods, however, go directly to the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. " The main thing is that the people who run the Ronald McDonald House have to stock it with food, " said Victor. " We get tons of stuff they can use. " ALPHA GAMMA DELTA High Hopes Every year at one of the home football games, the Alpha Gamma Delta sis- ters send a number of helium-filled balloons into the sky. These balloons benefit their philanthropy. Juvenile Diabetes. How can balloons benefit Juvenile Diabete It is all a part of Alp Gamma Delta ' s Ballo Derby Days. j " They sell raffle tick« to people in the comm nity, " said adviser Jc Lumpkin of the Alpl Gam sisters. " Half of tl ticket goes in a balloon When all of the tick halves are inside th prospective balloons, tl Alpha Gams release tl balloons. " The balloon that go the furtherest wins, " sa Lumpkin. " The perse who finds the baiioc writes in to Alpha Gamn Delta and wins a prize ca: award. The person wl bought the ticket also gc a cash prize.

What did the sisters of AKA think of the outcome of the event? Eggieston spoke on behalf of her sisters. " It was fun for our sorority. We wanted to get people on campus involved, " she said. Though the fall presen- tation of the talent show was the first for Alpha Kappa Alpha, they hope to continue with the show every semester. DELTA SIGMA THETA Debonair Flair Whde the AKA ' s had their fun by watching talent, the Delta Sigma Theta sisters had their fun by watching men. And this time they had a very good reason. Delta Sigma Theta brought the opportunity upon themselves in April when they heW the Mr. Debonair contest in the Robert M. GuiUot Univer- sity Center. Just about every male on campus had the chance to enter, too. " We sent out flyers to different male organiza- tions, " said Dr. Felice Green, Delta Sigma Theta ' s adviser. The various categories In the contest included poise, evening wear, casual wear and sports wear. ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA— Son)a Quinn, Rcgina Simpson. Tarnmit Eggksion. Stacte SMgt. There were approxi- mately ten contestants, " said Dr. Green. " 1 think we had more Independents than fraternity men. h wasn ' t dominated by fraternity people. " If you are currently assuming that the presence of women dominated the audience, you are correct. " The men had their cheering section, " sakl Dr. Green, " but there were more women than men. " When the men stopped posing and the women stopped cheering. Free- dom Woods became Mr. Debonair. Most of all, the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta found another good way to have fun. 243 CHANGES -booking for a change Change— it is a vital part of growing and progressing. Everyone has to make some changes sometimes, and Greek organizations are not left untouched. The sisters of Phi Mu and of Zeta Tau Alpha have found change to be advantageous and necessary. PHI MU Going Through Changes The Phi Mu sisters know what change is like. They have changed the places where they live and These sororities are not content with the status quo By Anissa Pahner the by-laws that govern their way of life as Phi Mu members. Jonanna Owings, Phi Mu ' s treasurer, has seen and has become involved in these changes. " Over the past five years, we ' ve raised enough money to redecorate our chapter room, " said Owings. " The chapter totally redecorated the chapter rooms. " With the changes also in the by-laws, the Phi Mu sisters are getting back to their roots. " We ' ve worked with our national offices to bring back a lot of rituals that have been lost and tradi- tions in the way that chap- ter business is conducted, " Owings said. The longing to get " back to basics " has the Phi Mu sisters working harder than ever on making changes. " We ' ve tried to improve on the chapter, " said Owings. ' We ' re just work- ing really hard to get back to a lot of old tradittons that we have lost over the years. " ZETA TAU ALPHA Seasons Change, People Change Not every organization, Greek or independent, experiences changes very often. The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, however, is an exception. Like Phi Mu, Zeta Tau Alpha has made some changes in living quarters and in by-laws. " We ' re going to paint our room this summer, " said Zeta Tau Alpha ' s Pan- hellenic representative Stephanie Reed. " We ' ll revise the by-laws in the spring. We ' re not sure what it ' s going to be, but we ' ll make revisions, " Reed said. She also said that it is common to update the by-laws about every two years. Probably the larges change that the Zetas have experienced is an almos total change of officers foi the 1991 year. " Only three of the people from this year have returned from last year, ' said Reed. Reed herself is one oi those returning officers] She will take over the posi-i tion of first vice president] Though change is a fad of life, and sometimes an unwelcome fact, it often proves to be very advanta- geous for those who experience it. The Phi Mui sisters and the Zeta Tau Alpha sisters take it all in stride. ZETA TAU ALPHA— Front Row: Cheryl Long, Karen Thatcher, Tammie Burlingame, Alicia Kelly, Stephanie Reed.

Everything and everyone serves a purpose on campus. The Greek organiza- tions are included, since they too have their individual purposes. The Interfratemity Council and Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity strive continuously to fulfill their purposes. INTER- FRATERNITY COUNCIL Doing it all on Puipose The purposes of the org anization are to allow the fraternities as a group to meet together and com- pose new ideas and also to allow for members to develop themselves as leaders. Have the members of the Interfratemity Council fulfilled this purpose? " I feel they have, " said Scott Mashburn, IPC adviser. " The guys have had the opportunity to plan programs and carry them out, and I think they have been successful. " The IPC is always look- ing for ways to present new ideas to the fraternities. Two ways in which the members do this are to make changes in such things as by-laws and rush procedures, and " by evalu- ating past programs and activities and seeing what the strengths and weak- nesses were, " said Mashburn. Building leaders is another purpose of the IPC, but how does the organization do this? The primary way is to allow the members to all take responsibilities upon themselves. " It ' s put the guys in a role where they ' re han- dling day-to-day business of IPC, " Mashburn said. The IPC ' s association with the Southeastern IPC Conference also helps the VS K H I II j flu jjmif A V— i JA Q » l Bmv- mii mBi Xti ' members to become better leaders. " It enables them to get the knowledge and training they need to work here on campus with other frater- nity groups as well as with nationals, " said Mashburn. By continually carrying out the purposes of the IPC, the members have gained a wealth of experience that they can take with them, said Mashburn. ' It has helped them to learn teamwork and has taught them time management. " ALPHA PHI ALPHA A Purposeful Union The purpose of the organization is to promote unitij on campus, as well as in the communitii. Unity on campus is a huge undertaking for one organization, but Alpha Phi Alpha has accepted the challenge. " Alpha Phi Alpha frater- nity has taken part in many events on campus, " said A Phi A vice president Marcus Stewart. He said that they worked hard to get acquainted with as many other organizations as possible. " We participated in Pes- tiversity, Leadership Retreats, IPC, Greek mixers, displays, open campus dances and a Pounder ' s Day program, " said Stewart. Unity off campus is also very important to the members of A Phi A. With the help of their national organization, the brothers have served this purpose. " Our national fraternity organization has taken part in a service project called ' Project Alpha, ' " said Stewart, " and this particu- lar chapter has been active. Project Alpha is to serve the youth of our commu- nity and show them tha we are concerned abou them. " Kappa Gamma chap ter put together a shor program for about 85 kin dergarten students on Ha! loween Day. The progran consisted of Halloween customed entertainmen and a short message to th kids about life. " The brothers of A Phi will continue to work fo campus and communitv unity in the future wher Atlanta mayor and forme United Nations securitv adviser Andrew Younc visits the campus, saic Stewart. " Mr. Young is member of A Phi A frater nity. This event will attrac state-wide attention as we! as community attention, ' he said. With a year of sue cesses, the members o IPC and Alpha Phi Alphc fraternity have found theii purposes in life. A MEETING is a good Hme to plan the year ' s activities.

Or do think of plans for the The brothers of Alpha au Omega. Kappa Alpha •nd Kai M Sigma know that their boab are what they work accomplish each year. ALPHA TAU OMEGA Reaching for the Goals Alpha Tau Omega had htk sites set on several oak during the year. They sought to start bonstruction on a new KHise. to have another Eissful rush, and to }ve their relationship the university and aJl rf the other Greeks on Binpus. Fkst of aO, constructing I new house is a large goal reach for. and the ATOs ound out all of the irobiems involved. " ATO was not able to construction on our r house this year due to al problems. " said the goaUseekers These fraternities set their priorities early in the year ATO membership educa- tor Drew Van Devender. " t we are striving to overcome these problems in the near future. " The success of rush greatly encouraged the ATOs, however. " I believe ATO rush this year was very successful due to the fact that we tried a few new approaches. " said Van Devender. [)id the ATOs improve their relationship with the university and other Greeks? " I think we did improve somewhat. " Van Devender said, " but when you are working with a growing chapter you have a limited time to distribute between university rela- tions, fraternity relations, and scholastics. " Though goals are often difficult to achieve right away, the ATOs still have some accomplishments to be proud of and a bright future to k)ok forward to. KAPPA ALPHA PSI Goal-Oriented Helping underprivileged By Anissa Palmer children on hobdays, get- ting involved in campus activities, purchasing a fraternity house, and achieving higher grade point averages are the goals that the Kappa Alpha Psi brothers set for themselves. Kappa Alpha Psi treas- urer Bennie Jennings feels that the fraternity has been quite successful in reaching their goals. They have made plans to work with the Big Brothers Big Sisters pro- gram in the spring to spend time with the children in the program. But the Kappa Alpha Psi brothers have already accomplished other goals, such as campus involvement. " We have social events with the other fraternities, " said Jennings. The fraternity also par- ticipated in Step Sing. Jen- nings said, " We did a step with canes and sang a song. " The song was " Cool or School, " and the brothers sent a message to every- one that an educatton is important. The Kappa Alpha Psi brothers also stressed academics. Jennings said. " None of us are on probation. We ' ve all maintained at least a C average. " Jennings also lays to rest the belief that Greeks do not have time to keep up with academic pursuits. " 1 think the Greek com- munity does a good job of keeping up with it. As far as studying, you ' ve got to keep your priorities straight, " he said. The only goal that the brothers could not reach right away was to purchase a house, but they feel that they will reach the goal in the future. KAPPA SIGMA A Year for Goals " For growth and development of the chap- ter, to make us better stu- dents, and for personal growth, " arc the reasons that Kappa Sigma vk:e president Rk:k Cobb gave for the fraternity ' s choice of goals. One of the goals was for the chapter to be ritually proficient. How dkl they reach for this goal? " Everybody has to be motivated individually to push himself more within the fraternity, " said Cobb. The Kappa Sigs also used mandatory study halls and self-imposed aca- demk: probation to stress accademk:s. " If a person is having a problem with his grades, he is automatically required to go to study halls, " Cobb said. The Kappa Sig brothers also hope to double mem- bership by the spring. Cur- rently with approximately 25 actives and six pledges, according to Cobb, they have quite a goal to accomplish. " We started working on it, but it will be spring before we can achieve that goal, " he said. Goals are easy to set but often diffk:ult to achieve; nevertheless, the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Alpha Psi, and Kappa Sigma are not afrakj to try. Bcnni Jcnmngi. K«vtn What. H«qult Ridtt.

Phi Gamma Delta and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternities have accomplishments that anyone would want to boast of. PHI GAMMA DELTA A Household Name Almost every fraternity dreams of owning its own house. Phi Gamma Delta did more than dream about it; they did it. Eddie Paseur, Fiji presi- dent, said that the brothers paid off the house in March. Though it took ten or twelve years, very proud the Fijis of their are accomplishment. Paseur said that a great deal of work went into the house. " The house is an old Victorian style house. It was completely redone when we moved into the house in 76. " He also said that the fraternity did not rely on ments are the past. " We still make pay- ments for the construction of a new fraternity house, " said Paseur. For the Fijis owning a fraternity house is not only an accomplishment of the present, but it will hope- fully be an accomplishment of the future. Pikes ' past record prompts such a conclusion. The Interfraternity Council tournament is strictly for the fraternities on campus; they do not compete against fraternities from other colleges, according to Pike alumni relations officer Danny Roberts. " We ' ve got a lot of good th: outside sources to help athletes, " said Roberts. them make the payments. " The fraternity paid it off itself by paying on it a little each month with the dues. " The house, located on 523 Oakview Circle, is material proof of one of the Fijis ' greatest accom- plishments. The Fijis arc not going to stop there, however, and house pay- THE FIJI ZETA Easter Egg Hunt is zdways a successful Intetfratemtty activity.

It is not a lucky guess; instead, the ' Everyone participates in athletics all throughout the year in intramurals. " The Pikes not only work hard to improve their soft- ball game. They also work hard to improve their house. " We put a new floor in, " said Roberts. " We put in a couple of pieces of furni- ture, we put in a back patio, we painted ho use, and we put in new stereo system. " In the future, the Pike hope to finish the parkin; lot and back landscapin; along with trying to com ' plete the furniture inside The Pikes also estab lished a loyal alumn chapter. " We send them severa invitations to the houst every year, " Roberts said The Pikes did so in orde to gain a good relationshif with and support from th( alumni.

Are there certain requirements that prospective members must fill? There certainly are membership requirements, like those for Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Sigma Chi, but they vary from one organization to another. SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON Setting High Standards Having and maintaining a 2.25 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) and being a true gentleman and brother— such are the requirements for Sigma Alpha Epsilon members. But why did they choose such standards? Daniel Rosser, SAE cor- respondent, explained the purpose of the GPA requirement. " We feel that this GPA is the minimum standard requirement to be a brother in our fraternity, " said Rosser. " We feel that this requirement is the minimum to win grades. " How do the SAEs know when a prospective member is " a true gentle- man and brother " ? " Pledges are given the opportunity to show their qualifications through par- ticipation in all fraternity activities, through learning the history of our fraternity, through involvement with brothers, and through showing initiative, " said Rosser. The SAEs feel that having such requirements benefit their fraternity. " I believe that those require- ments have an obvious effect on our fraternity, " By Anissa Palmer Rosser said. For the past three years, according to Rosser, the fraternity has won the Dean ' s Cup for strong brotherhood and high standards. The Dean ' s Cup is the highest award given to fraternities. It is no mystery why the SAEs have such high membership requirements; it all pays off in the end. SIGMA CHI Membership Status In order to be a member of Sigma Chi fraternity, a man must have all of the personal characteristics that make the Sigma Chi man. He must be of good character, a good student, ambitious, congenial, honorable and also responsible. The Sigma Chis have a special process that pledges go through to prove themselves. " We have pledgeship for a whole semester. We have rush in August. If they make it through pledgeship, they get initiated next semester, " said Roger Presley, a Sigma Chi member. Pledgeship is not so unusual for Greek organi- zations; however, potential Sigma Chis have to show the members that they meet all of the qualifi- cations. " They have to pass tests, and we look at them really closely as to if they ' ll be beneficial to us and help the chapter, " Presley said. Why did the Sigma Chis choose such requirements? " We consider ourselves to have high standards, said Presley, " and if person comes close t these requirements the we fee! like he can be good addition to Sigm Chi. " Presley also said the these qualification produce quality membei ship because one mu« earn the honor by himsell Such membershi; qualifications also give th Sigma Chis a goo reputation. " We like for people t look at us as being gentlt men and having high stan dards, " said Presley. Membership require ments definitely serve purpose for Sigma Alph Epsilon and Sigma Chi- they allow the fratemitie to have quality membei ship and quality repu tations.

(Photo by Herb Stokes) BACK IN THE HIGHLIGHT After a couple of disappointing seasons, the football team bounced back- By Greg Seitz In two seasons at the Univer- sity of North Alabama, Bobby Wallace had revived a once powerful football program and brought it back from the edge of obscurity. A turnaround from a 2-8 season in 1988 to a 6-5 finish in 1989 placed the Lions back on respectable footing. But after let- tering 57 freshmen and sopho- mores in 1989, no one expected or predicted what would happen in 1990. No one, that is, except Wal- lace, who did both. He expected the Lions to win and contend for Gulf South Conference and national honors and he predicted it at the Lions ' annual Media Day in mid -July. " We won ' t be satisfied going 6-5 again this season, " Wallace said. " We want to be going into the last game of the season con- tending for the conference cham- pionship and the national playoffs. That ' s where I expect us to be. " And there the Lions were. Finishing the regular-season with a dramatic 26-10 victory over Valdosta State to go 8-2 overall, earn an NCAA Division 11 playoff berth and tie for second place in the GSC. A season made even more remarkable by the fact that the Lions had only six seniors and weren ' t expected by most t challenge for such honors unt 1991. But a young offense under th direction of Randy Campbell, i his first season as offensive cooi dinator, led the GSC in tot; offense and scoring offense Combined with a defense th led the league in rushing defens and ranked nationally in scorin defense, total defense and pass ing efficiency defense, the Lior had the right ingredients to cor tend in 1990. A disappointing 38-14 loss t arch-rival Jacksonville State i the opening round of the NCAi playoffs did little to dampen stellar season that once agai placed the Lions in the nationi spotlight. " There weren ' t any miracles, said Wallace. " We were succes ful because our players an coaching staff worked hard, froi the first day of practice right o through. 1 think we made grei strides and it was the most fu season 1 have had coaching. " It was fun to watch us gi better each week and watch th players work hard to make th; happen. 1 think we have bee able to put the program bac where people can be proud of again.

The Lions rolled to an impressive 25-0 win over visiting Alabama A M before 14,683 fans and set the tone early for the 1990 season. North Alabama then hosted the defending NCAA Division II National Champions, the Missis- sippi College Choctaws. After UNA built a 10-0 halftime lead, Mississippi College gave the Lions their first loss of the young season, 21-10, scoring three second half touchdowns. The Lions then pieced together three straight wins to push their record to 4-1 mid-way through the season and move into the Division II national rank- ings. UNA defeated Albany State 37-23 on the road, then went on to pick up its first Gulf South Conference win by defeating Delta State 15-13. Freshman Brad Stepp kicked three field goals, including a 34- yarder with 2:08 to play to lead UNA to the win. The Statesmen drove to the UNA 16 as time expired but couldn ' t get off a possible game-winning field goal attempt before time expired. That win marked the third time that the Lions had faced a nationally ranked team in the first four games. Alabama A M was ranked 12th, Mississippi College was ranked first and Delta State was ranked 20th. And the momentum con- tinued as UNA finally celebrated a Homecoming victory for the first time since 1985 with its second shut-out of the season. UNA blasted GSC rival Tennessee-Martin 49-0. The Lions defense excelled again as they held the GSC ' s top scoring team to no points, just 15 yards rushing and 133 total yards. And with the win, the Lions were in the national rankings for the first time in the season at number 17 in the country. The North Alabama Lions faced the Division II nattonal runner-up and defending GSC Champions Jacksonville State the following week. The Lions entered the game ranked 14th and the the Gamecocks had suffered two straight losses. For the first time since 1986, UNA was not the underdog in this game with Jax State and was in a position to take another major step toward regaining national prominence. UNA led early and the Lions ' offense rolled all day but the defense couldn ' t stop the JSU option as the Gamecocks pulled out the 41-25 win. UNA gained 428 total yards as Ricky Gandy rushed for 125 yards on 15 car- ries and Brian Satterfield rushed for 78 yards and scored twice. The Lions surrendered 381 yards but was still in the game at 34-25 late in the fourth quarter when a pass was picked off by JSU ' s Darrell Malone and returned for a touchdown to seal the JSU win. The Lions dropped out of the National rankings with the loss and stood 2-2 in the conference. " After the loss to Jacksonville, I knew we were at a crucial point in the season, " said Wallace. " With four games left, we could win four and make the playoffs, or we could finish mediocre or go downhill and finish 7-3 or 6- 5 or worse. It was very important that we played every game down the stretch one at a time and not look back or ahead, and we were able to do that. " The Lions rolled up four straight victories to close out the regular season and earn their first playoff berth since 1985 and the fourth in school history UNA ro lled over Troy State 17-6 as defense shined, allowi only 72 yards rushing. Mich. Jackson was named GJ Defensive Player-of-the-We with 18 tackles and an int ception. The Lions scored the seco most points in school history a the most ever in a GSC gai the next week as they drill Livingston 54-10. Troy Nels was dazzling, scoring on a S yard kickoff return and two lo passes as UNA piled up 4 yards overall and 304 throu the air. After the win, the Lie jumped back into the natioi rankings at 18th. The Lions rolled on another easy win over visiti West Georgia 45-7 as Nels again scored three times, on on a punt return and twice TD passes, giving him six touc downs in two weeks. But UNA saved the best pi formance of the regular-seas for the final half. Trailing 10-9 at intermissic UNA allowed the Blazers just offensive plays in the second h and VSC managed just one fi down, with that coming with ji 17 seconds left in the game. UNA, meanwhile, picked 16 first downs, ran 50 offensi plays and held the ball for 25 the final 30 minutes. " I have never seen a team completely dominate a half o football game the way this tee did against Valdosta, " said W lace. " They made up their min that they were going to take cc trol of things and they did. " UNA emerged with a 26- win over Valdosta State, ai learned the following day it h earned a return to the Divisior playoffs and chance to perha play for the national title on home field at Braly Municif Stadium. Despite 278 yards passii from Bryant, which was the t( performance by any quarterba throughout the 1990 playof UNA fell at JSU, 38-14, to do the year at 8-3.

THE WINNING ATTITUDE High hopes and an excellent record filled the men ' s basketball season By An ssd Palmer The Lions began in Novcm- r with high hopes for a suc- •ssful season, and the year has lOt been a di sappointing one. Iiough early -season success is necessarily an indicator of well a team will continue to iby, it very often serves as ncouragement But for the .ions, the season was no less lan successful; even 17 games mo the 28 game schedule, their •cord was 15 wins to two —nothing to complain fcout. Holding such an impressive •cord near mid-season was lefinitely an encouraging bought to Coach Gary Elliott, xxuidering the difficulties which e team once faced Early in the year we were not ibyir)g weD offensively. " said Elott " Since Christmas, the fferue has been more con- istent ■■ The strengths of the team were abo evident to the men ' s XMch. " We ' ve been very consis- in our defensive efforts and •bounding. " he said The mens basketball team nnsisted of Elbott Beal, Tony orsey. Darryl Hardy. Mark tnt. Ricky Johnson. Eric Lacy. Lilcs. Kevin Simmons. Eric Fred Stafford. Allen Wil- aixl Carl Wilmer. Ten of players were eligible to play. two were " red-shirted. " What does it mean for players be red-shirted? As Coach explained, these players sit the season out by their own choice; they practkre but are not eligible to play. " They play next year. " said Elliott. " They arc going to sit out this year. " The coach felt that the ten eligible players made up a fine team. " They ' re playing excep- tionally well as a team, " he said. " Everybody has accepted his role this year. " The Lions found that it was important to play as a team if they wanted a good chance of winning their 15 home games and 13 road games. Seventeen of the home and away games were also conference games. But almost every team has its star players, and Fred Stafford ' s name was one that often appeared in newspaper headbnes. " Fre d has dedicated his senior year to helping UNA have the best team it can possibly have, " said Elbott. " He ' s very unselfish and plays with his bmitations. " A strong team can often find its best-kept secrets on the berxrh, also. The biggest surprise of the seetson was Tony Dorsey. ' Tony has been a pleasant surprise. " said Elhotl. " He ' s come in here and played like a vete- ran. He ' s been one of our most consistent players. " As the team continued through its season, each player ' s goal was to make it to the Gulf South ConfererKe.

Thir- Mn of these wins were at home Mh only two home losses. The Md record included ten wins nd two losses, while there was ne neutral win. The men also oasted a 12 to four record for iSC games. A $core of 119 to 71 against tiViy Institute was the top-score ■ne of the season. Simmons sored 23 of those points while tonsy made 15 rebounds. The Kond-b«st aeaaon game was gainst West Geor The Lions tfeated West Georgia 111 to S. In this game. Dorsey was the adir g scorer with 25 points and Vilmer was the leading (■bounder with ten rebounds. Dorsey and Wilmer played a htal part in the Lions ' efforts Houghout the entire season. Mkner scored 33 points in a ante against Troy State, more oints than any other individual cored for the men ' s team this Bason Dorsey came in second rtth 30 points against Jackson - iDe State. Dorsey was also the len ' s top rebounder in a game gainst Virginia Union; he made 7 rebounds Each game began with the me five starters: Williams (guard). Simmons (guard), Stafford (forward). WUmer (for- ward) . and Johnson (center) . In a home game against Livingrton, however. Hardy took the place of Williams. Toward the very end of the season, the Lions found themselves without a top player. Coach Elliott and the Lions were in turmoil as they neared the Livingston game. Williams had suddenly disappeared from school. When he did not show up for practice one afternoon, the coach went to look for him in his dorm room. Williams had completely moved out and returned to his Clearwater, Ra.. home to be with his infant son and the mother. " He didn ' t tell anybody he was leaving. " said Wilmer during the time of confusion. " From a personal standpoint, he must feel he needs to be at home taking care of his family. " Another concern that the Lions faced was that they found themselves hurting in depth. Wil- liams was a leading scorer in five games and was a very vital player to the team. Only a few days passed, however, before Williams rejoined the team. One night before the home game with Livingston, he called the coach " He called and said he wanted to come back and that he realized he had handled the situatton in the wrong way, " said Elliott. The other team players met with the coach late that night and decided that Williams could return to the team. Everyone seemed to accept him back wholeheartedly and with under- standing. " The reasons he gave were pretty strong. " said Elliott. " And I had a little more compassion after hearing the different pres- sures that were on him . . . you can ' t judge someone until you walk in his shoes. " Though Williams returned In time for the Livingston home game, he did not play. Hardy took his place as a starting point guard. Coach Elliott had a great deal of confidence in Hardy. " We ' ve got a great point guard in Darryl Hardy who can play the point and take up the slack. " said Elliott at the Living- ston game. " He ' s really been like a starter to us all year long. " " Darryl is a smart player and he can handle the ball, " said fellow teammate Wilmer. Hardy had started eight games when he was a freshman in the 1987-88 season. Red- shirted in the next season, he did not play but was a backup to point guard Tony Clanton last year.

Allen [Williams] opted for more shots, but I try to get everybody else included in the offense instead of worrying about my own scoring. " While the Lions lost the game against Livingston, the score was close: 75 to 78. There were other good games and bad games during the season, as anyone might expect.

You aren ' t as sharp and you ' re sluggish after making that long of a trip. " The Lions could be very proud of their road record, however. Only two losses on the road means that the men can play good basketball anywhere, anytime. Overall, Elliott is happy with the season. " It ' s been a great season and I couldn ' t be prouder of a group of players, " said Elliott. " They gave a great effort every night this year. " The season full of hard work paid off. The Lions received an invitation to the NCAA tourne ment. Only one thing dampene this success, however. The Lior were hoping to host th tournament. " I ' m very excited about gettin into the tournament but I ' m ver disappointed that we ' re not ge ting to host, " said Elliott. Though the Lions is the to ranked team in the South regior Troy State will be hosting th tournament. " We turned in our bid and Ft surprised by what happened, said Athletic Director Bill Jone; " We made a pretty good bid, bi Troy must have a better one. Elliott would not let the bi loss spoil his happiness however. " I ' m pleased we ' re i and 1 think we deserve it. " The Lions began the scaso with an excellent record an ended the season with an exce lent record. That is what a tear can accomplish with a winnin attitude. r » 266 (.

Some teams have high hopes for the conference title, while others only see the GSC crown as a dream. The championship was very much a possibility for the Lady Lions. How did the women ' s team rate at the beginning of the season? " We were picked seventh, " said Wayne Byrd, the coach for the Lady Lions. And seventh was not a rating to be disappointed about, since it gave the women and Byrd something to strive for. It is not an easy task to be able to win the GSC title. A team ' s season record has to be very impressive before such a title is possible. " You ' ve got to lose one less than the number two team, " said Coach Byrd, " but the team that wins the conference will have no more than three conference losses. " All of Byrd ' s faith for the con- ference title depended upon the individual team members and how well they contributed their playing abilities to the overall efforts of the team. While one can see that he felt good about the team at the beginning of the season, he also had reason for such enthusiasm at mid-season. " We ' re playing as well as we ' ve played all year. The players have done what we ' ve expected them to do, " he said. " Everybody is doing a great job defensively. We ' re probably one of the better defensive teams. " Much of the offensive strength belonged to the two star players Patrena (Trena) Scruggs am Tracy McCall. According to thei coach, the two women " ar having outstanding years offcn sively. " But there is more to , team than the star players, am the Lady Lions were fortunat enough to be blessed with a tean full of talent. Cheryl Herring and Vict Brown were two players who according to Byrd, were ver strong offensively and defen sively. Tonya Baker was also • strong offensive player, whil Allison McDonald and Jeanieo Slater were strong defensively One could say that Mesher Goins added her own specie touch to the team as a strong rebounder. Linda Parker and Kim Scott along with McDonald, Slater am Brown, left their places on thi bench to greatly benefit th- team. " They ' ve done a good job fo us, " said Coach Byrd of hi bench team. " There have beei atuations when they have tume( the game around for us. " Overall, Byrd was vcr pleased with the Lady Lions. " A of our players have played well, he said. As the season came to ( close, Byrd found himself think ing back on the women ' s GSC competitors. He said that all o the competition was fierce, an( that no game was particularl| easy. " All our games have bcei pretty close, " he said. " Thcy ' n all tough. " (Cont. on next page 268 A PU YER MUST BE very agile to b able to dribble the ball down the court quickly toward the goal.

This included an 1 1 B thrae home record, a nine to we road record, and a ten to six ecord for GSC games. Otm d the Lady Lions ' most uccessful games was an away IBine at UT-Martin. The women Ideated UT-Martin with a 99 to 13 score McCall was the top corer in the game with 35 lOints. and Scruggs was the lading rebounder with 15 itbounds. A 20-win season is one which t Lady Lions can be proud of. is only the fourth 20-win in the Lady Lions basket- history and is the most wins tat the team has had since the 983-84 season Other success- ul seasons include 1979-80 with 22 to ten record. 1980-81 with 22 to 1 1 record, and 1983-84 vtth a 25 to five record. Coach Byrd has had his fair hare of successes. Now in his linth season with the Lady Jons, he has a 142 to 103 ■cord. He also has a two to two aoord in NCAA regional touma- Itents. SirKe his coaching career first began on campus, he has had seven wbming seasons and three NCAA tournaments. The Lady Lions have previously appeared In NCAA tournaments in 1984 and 1985 The 1990-91 season was one for record-breaking. McCall broke several records on her own. For example, she scored in double-figures in 38 straight games. The past record bek nged to Deborah Benson who scored in double-figures in 25 games. She also scored in double-figures in 74 times in her career and became the leading scorer in Lady Lions history with 1.408 points. Other records include one set by Coins. She set the career blocked shot record with 54. Not everyone can be in the spotlight during a season, but every player contributes to the success of the team. The Lady Lions have plenty to boast of. too. They swept Delta State, thus becoming the first GSC team to ever do so. They also spoiled Delta State ' s 48-game home win streak when they defeated the team on its own turf. Herring, a four-year member T.iko a closor look at TRACY McCALL of the women ' s basketball team. was extremely impressed with their success at Delta State " I ' ll akways remember that, " she saki. " We stopped their win streak at home when nobody thought we had a chance at beating them. " The Lady Lions were very lucky that they defeated Delta State in the final game with a 73 to 61 score.

The baseball crew had another outstanding year, finish- ing with a record of 37-11, and beating tough competitors like Mississippi State, who advanced to the NCAA National Tourna- ment; runner-up NAIA National Champions Auburn University at Montgomery, from whom the Lions took three of four games; and Division III runner-up National Champions Aurora University, whom UNA swept in a three -game series. The Lions finished with a record of 11-5 in the Gulf South Conference to win the GSC Western Division and host the GSC Tournament at Lion Field, but a valiant effort by UNA to repeat as GSC Champions was spiked as they fell to the Jack- sonville State Gamecocks and Troy ' s Trojans by 9-4 scores in GSC Tourney action. Going into the season with a lot of turnover, the Lions were unsure of how potent their attack would be; however, UNA was able to add more punch to an already impressive lineup featur- ing Ali-Americans Mike Burns and Dan Bock, All-Region Rusty Smith, and shortstop Craig Bryant, and bolstered their run- producing ability with speedy, heads-up baserunning. " We had the combination of a great speed and power team, " said Coach Lane. " We stole a lot of bases, thereby producing a bt of runs. " Lane added that the pitching staff was instrumental in making the most of the runs scored by the Lions. " There were games we won where we didn ' t score a lot of runs, because we didn ' t need to, " Lane said. " Our pitching came through. " The Lions ' pitching staff led the nation in earned run aver- age, giving up only 2.66 runs per nine innings. According to Lane, the most important factor in the development of the Lions as a team was the performance and maturity of the UNA moundsmen. " Although there were a lot of questions about our pitching at the beginning of the season, the development of the pitching staff had a lot to do with our success, " said Lane. " They matured into an outstanding pitching staff. " " Kenny Head had an out- standing year on the mound, " Lane added, " as did Robbie Lamar, Joe Martinez, and Billy Sullivan. Those four guys were there when we needed them. " Another staffer, Rodney Busha, was drafted and signed to a lucrative contract by the Texas Rangers after the season ended. Busha and fellow hurlers Lamar, Russ Cleveland, and Paul Ragland made up the Lions ' ' 90 " K-Club. " Busha fanned 40 opposing hitters in 39 innings, while Cleveland was fourth in the nation with 61 strikeouts in 50 innings pitched. Lamar, mean- while, had 72 " K ' s " in only 66 innings, while Ragland nailed 22 batters in 21 innings. Another factor in the Lions ' success was their excellent relief pitching. " Sullivan and Martinez did the bulk of that, and did an outstanding job, " Lane said. Sullivan went 7-2 and had an excellent 2.09 ERA; bullpen pal Martinez was 4-0 with an incredi- ble 1.41 ERA and 10 of the Lions ' 12 saves. For the most part, Head an Lamar were the starters for tY Lions. They performed vei well, with a combined 14- record. Head ' s 8-2 mark an fine 2.51 ERA earned him a sp( on the All-GSC Western Confe ence team with Lamar, as w( as on the All-South Centr Region team with Martine Lamar also made the All-GS team. The Lions had what Lar called a " good mix, " with a equal distribution of playe making valuable contribution And, UNA continued to sho fans an exciting brand of basi ball. As one supporter declarec " They kept me on the edge ( my seat all season. " " He did win a lot of ballgamt in the six or seventh inning Lane said. " The guys cam through with some good clutc performances. " And not all the clutch perfo mances came on the pitcher mound, either. Third baseman Burns had pretty good year for UNA, as b drove in 42 runs, hit .336, sto 10 of 12 bases, and had eigl homers. Second sacker Mai Moziejko had a .324 averag( was successful on 12 of 14 stole base attempts, and joined Bum Head, Martinez, and outfield( Greg Bowles on the All-Soul Central Region team. Bowles " had a great year said Lane. The UNA outfield( made All-American, with a .36 batting average, 30 walks, and phenomenal 48 of 51 stea (second in NCAA Division rankings) . First baseman Jerry Mitchui hit .314 and drove in 36 runs fc the Lions and joined Lamar an Bowles on the All-GSC tearr Catcher Mike Weems hefted .309 average and made the Al GSC team with Mitchun: Bowles, Lamar, and Head. Bock and Smith cam through for UNA at the plat( too. Bock hit .412, stole 21 ( 24 bases, and slugged six triple: Smith hit .275 with seve homers, made it safely on 20 ( 23 stolen base attempts, an drove in 36 runs. Though UNA combine power with speed to develop a explosive offensive. Lane sai there were differences in th Lions ' play during last seaso and 1989.

UNA had a very respectable |310 average last season, and lariy doubted their opponents ' Ixtra base totals. 139 to 77. The Lions ' propensity for sto- m bases also continued, as JNA runners swiped 150 bases 1 176 attempts UNA starters lere caught stealing only 17 Imes in 149 attempts, for an J76 theft success rate. The Lions have reached the »SC playoffs during four of the ist five seasons, an impressive tat considering UNA was rebuilding ' during two of those ears " Well, you know, at this ivel— the level we ' re at— we try ot to rebuild, we try and ebad. " said Lane. But. considering the fact that e Lions returned only eight layers, their home record be- omes truly outstanding: UNA inished with 24 wins in 27 ome games. As far as turnaround goes. .ane said that particular aspect tf the game didn ' t apply to the Jons in 1990. " Last year I voukin ' t say that was the case, the year before- 1989—1 M uM say that [applied]. Last ear we played pretty much at steady pace, and won some ig games all ak ng. " The Lions sure did. including 10-3 defeat of the Mississippi itate Bulldogs in May UNA Jso played exceptionally well gainst AUM and Monte vallo. both of whom had pretty good • n clubs, especially Monte val- Lane said. They had a pod team, and we beat them. " " We played consistently weD ' ' .rou iout the year. " he added. Then it came down to the last uekend. and the conference hampionship was hanging by a hread between ourselves. Jvingston. and Deha State, not ly to see who would win ft. ut who woukl host the [GSC] oumament. " The Lions traveled to Uvlng- lon during the last weekend. and needed to split with the Tigen to clinch the West and host the GSC Toumey. " We bst the first game, but came back to take the second. " sakl Lane. " We had to win that second ballgame, and we did, " he sakl. The Ltons ' consistent play was definitely a major determi- nent in their season, and com- bined with their strong pitching, speed, and power to help ce- ment the team into a tough, fighting ballclub. But Lane noted that another crucial part of the Lions ' efforts was the players ' handling of a situation which they had no con- trol over: the weather. " Playing with consistency was very difficult to do. because last spring we had a tremendous amount of rain. There were stretches during the season where we didn ' t get on the field for three or four days at a time. In baseball, " said Lane, " it ' s im- perative that you get out there on the field and get that [prac- tice] time in, and there were lots of times we didn ' t get to do that. " The Lions may have lost a chance at a 45-47 win season because of the rain. Lane said. He added that he was partk:u- lariy proud of the team because of their level of consistent play, considering some of the adver- sities they faced. In addition to weather problems and turnover in per- sonnel, the baseball squad had another problem to beat: aca- demic woes. " Last year was an unusual year for the Lion baseball team. as we suffered some grade casualties and disappoint- ments. " Lane said. " But we ' ve had a bt of players graduate from [UNA] through this pro- gram, throughout the years, and traditionaDy the baseball pro- gram has always done well with grades. " Lane said that an important part of the success of the base- baO program goes on behind the scenes " Underneath the public view of winning ballgames. and championships, there ' s an awful tot of work and effort that goes into study halls, monitoring grades, and fundraislng, that al- bw the baseball program to be successful. " Lane said that fundraislng " te something that ' s very important, bikI something we have to do to be successful That albws us to pay for all the games we play, and to pay for our umpires and for the trips, as well as our room and board. " He noted, too, that fundrais- lng activities help pay for the team bus, lets the baseball pro- gram recruit, and helps to pay for equipment, as well. Lane said that the support that comes from the administra- tion and fans is equally impor- tant. " The support and recognition that have aided this program during the past few years is incak:ulable, ' ' saki Lane, " both in an academic fashion and financially. " Lane said that he wanted to present an example of the type of support that has come from the university administration. " We have added outstanding lights to the already much- improved Lion Field, and I credit that to [former UNA Presi- dent] Dr. Robert Guillot, [new] President Robert L. Potts, [former Executive Vice Presi- dent] Dr. Roy Stevens, Athletic Director Bill Jones, the trustees, and our advisers. " Lane said that the improve- ments to Lion Field, including the work done by players, coaches, and university staff, have helped to increase the potential of the baseball team in both performance and recruit- ing, as well as in fan suppor t. " Players and staff help to keep the field up, and the coaches have erected an out- standing fence around the out- field to complement our [new] sod, lights, scoreboard, and building, " Lane said. " We ' re very proud of their volunteer work and sacrifice, too. " Lane said that a recruit can visit the university and see that people care about the universi- ty and its facilities " We have an excellent reputation for an educatk nal facility, as wel as for our athletic programs, and our atmosphere. " Lane noted. " We feel we are on a level par with any Division II school in the country, recruiting-wise, and some higher-ranked schoob. as weO. " he sakl.

But considering the fact that the team was basically a young and relatively inexperienced squad, composed mainly of sophomores and including seven first-year players (many of whom were experiencing their first taste of fast -pitch competition), a 7-19 mark isn ' t quite as disappointing as might otherwise be the case. Despite having only one returning senior, a frosh pitcher, and a weak hitting attack, the Lady Lions managed to finish fourth in the Gulf South Confer- ence race, and missed advanc- ing in the GSC Tournament by mly one run. Coach Ande Jones said. Due to our youth and inex- )erience. we bst a lot of really close games. One-half of our k sses were by only a run difference. " Jones added that she was " pleased with the progress of the team. They were hard-working girls, a good squad with a good work ethic. They played like they wanted to win, and [that] showed towards the end of the season. " Though 1990 was a rebuild- ing year and a learning experience for the Lady Lions, there were some bright spots in their performances which coukl pave the way for success during the next few seasons. The conversion of outfielder Amy Slaughter to catcher at mid- season solved UNA ' S catching problems and helped to solidify the defense, said Jones. " Amy did a really fine job for us back there (after the switch). " Jones said. Another pleasant surprise for the Lady Lions was the play of frosh shortstop Kristy Hunter, " h was her first time in fast -pitch, and she played beautifully, " Jones saki.

" Having Monica out there Mching for us slowed us to let opposing teams] hit into our trength. which was our ieferue. " 2Klded Jones. Part of the strength of the ..ady Lions ' defense came as a result of thie play of Mollie McHenney at third base. McHenncy combined with AD- GSC second sacker Kristie Grant, shortstop Hunter, and catcher Slaughter to give the team a solid defensive infield. " MoDie dkl a good job at third base. " Jones said, " and that was crucial In thie rebuilding process. We knew we had to devek p our defense. With no ' strikeout pitchers ' (per se), but having good sobd pitehers, and a weak- hitting team, we relied on defense to help us win, " she sakl. Ahhough the Lady Lions were sub-par at the plate as a group, with only a .172 team average, there were some nota- ble exceptions. Grant contributed a very respectable .292 average, and led the team in doubles, triples, home runs, and RBIs. " Kristie came through for us at the plate, " said Jones. " She was there when we really needed someone to get the big hit. " The tone senior on the squad, Ursula Goodner, tallied a .284 at the plate despite a knee injury. " That hurt us, Ursula being injured, " Jones saki. The maturity the Lady Lions gained over the 1990 season shoukl help them to stage a run at respectabifity in 1991 and ' 92. " h was an ' almost there ' kind of year for us in 1990, " saki Coach Jones. " But you can kx k out for us in the next two years, because with the experieiKe we gained last season and the devetopment of our team that we ' ve seen, we shouki be in great shape to contend with the best.

He noted that both players were selected to compete in sin- gles and doubles play, and said that the honor of being selected for competitk n was " a good reward for them, because the toumament only selects the top players in the country. " Both Hagan and Nilsson played well, with Nilsson becom- ing only the second Division II Ail-American from UNA (former UNA Women ' s Tennis and Cross-Country Coach Brice Bishop was similarly honored in 1985) and joining Hagan in eaming a ranking as one of the top 17 doubles ' pairs in the nation.

Although you are never sure f development, there is always great deal of excitement and Kpectation involved. " Thomp- n said He added that UNA " played i tough a schedule last year as t ' ve ever played, and I think ai helps a lot We found early the year that we could com- w with opponents . and V was a tremendous confi- ■ ce booster. " By competing with tough v . sion I teams. Thompson Ki the Lions become better repared (or Division and GSC id ' . We will be playing much the ime in ' 91 . as we have a tough :hedule once again. But. " Ided Thompson, " we wiO be lying with good people. " He said that he expects agan to orKc again have a od year, and that, " I ' m lased the guys are eager and ady to play, and anxious to get jing " UNA will continue to have an ittmational flavor " in the Men ' s ennis squad. Thompson said. A ' e feel that the international hietes add not only to the nnis program, but to the mosphere (in general] at UNA. ■ € interaction and exchange etween cultures is good for the hietes. as well as for the other udents. and the staff. " Thompson said that consider- ing the calibre of opponents that UNA faced in 1990, he felt t hat the team performed well. He said that the GSC will again be highly competitive, with the Lions battling Valdosta State, University of Tennessee-Martin, and Troy State for the title. Although the Lions were rela- tively injury -free in the spring season, the fall season, during which UNA plays exclusively in Toumament play, has been a different story as four of the team have been injured in one manner or another. " That ' s where the importarKc of conditioning plays such an important role, " Thompson said. " Conditioning helps the athletes fight off little nagging injuries and devebps their stamina. " He said that conditioning also helps the players learn discipline and develop a good attitude. " Through conditioning, they learn the importarKe of hard work. " Thompson said he feh that the key to the Lions ' successful season was the combination of " a good team of good guys " combined with the lineup change he implemented at mid-season " We were bsing matches we shouM have been winning, " he said. " I don ' t know why. but that change seemed to help the team to ' jelT; after the change, winning 12 of 14 came as a pleasant sur- prise. I knew we were capable of that kind of play. " Thompson added, " but I didn ' t expect that Ibneup change] to trigger it. " Playing good competition cer- tainly contributed to the Ltons ' season erKiir g streak, too. as the UNA netsters went 8-2 in regional play. k sing only to Jacksonvdle Stats and Abilerie Christian. That was the tuming point in our season, that lineup change. " Thompson noted. " We came back stronger after it was implemented, winning the next six matches in a row. Before the change, we were 4-8. " The 12 of 14 winning streak was a major factor in UNA ' s No. 18 National ranking, and helpe d uphold the Lions ' traditional spot as one of the " Top 5 " Men ' s Tennis programs in the Southern Region. " We like to be considered as a program to be reckoned with, " said Thompson, " and it ' s very nice to be in that position. " Scholastically, the Men ' s Tennis program is one of the most successful on campus, graduating over 95 percent of the athletes. " We ' re very proud of that— the fact that our players not only get to play but earn a degree. And, " Thompson added, " most all of them graduate on time, as well. " He said one thing about the Lions which puzzles him is the fact that the team does not enjoy a home court advantage. " We seem to play as well on the road as we do at home, " Thompson said. The Lions ' penchant for adaptability served them well during the stretch run, as UNA came through with some crucial conference wins, including a 5- 4 defeat of Valdosta State in what Thompson termed " a very good match, and a big win for us. " Thompson said that support from students, faculty, and the administration plays a key role in the success of the program. " We have one of the finest facilities in the conference. " he said, " and that ' s something that makes us appreciative. " " After aD, " sakl Thompson, " playing as a team is important, whether you ' re talking about tennis or education.

But the Lady Lions ' 10-10 belies the fact that the team on a positive note, nar- ly missing advancement to Nationab, as they were out by GuK South Con- e rival University of ■ lessee -Martin by only two lints in the GSC Tournament. GSC Champion Jacksonville te. an extremely strong team, with 26 points while UT- rtin squeaked by UNA 11-9. " We certainly dkln ' t miss by uch. " said new Coach Kevin ford, who has succeeded rmer Lion ADAmcrican Brice shop as the Lady Lions ' entor Bradford noted that the imecocks won seven of the le conference positions in the umcy. and were joined in the itional rankings by UT-Martin . " Both finished in the Top 15 the country. " he said. A really tough schedule. lich saw the Lady Lions play three of 20 matches at home, helped to quash their chances for a better season. " The team dkln ' t win as many matches because of playing on the road, " Bradford sakl. " A kjt of their matches went three sets; and (everyone knows that) play- ing on the road is different, and more difficult, than playing at home. " The Lady Ltons were also hurt by the fact that Jefferson State transfers Sherry Kennemer and Mk:helle Wood were beset by problems. Kennemer suffered a wrist injury whk:h skielined her for the season, while Wood had diffkruhies adjusting to UNA. But the main factor that hin- dered the Lady Lions ' chances was the killer schedule which fea- tured Division 1 schools such as Mississippi State and the Univer- sity of Mississippi, as well as UAB, the University of the South, and Wofford College. " All of those have strong women ' s tennis programs, and when you add them to the GSC. whk:h features pretty close com- petitk n. too, well, that says a bt about the character of this team that they played to a 10-10 record and finished third in the GSC, " sakJ Bradford.

" There were three returning ' ..en and three newcomers on team in 1990, " [The team) an interesting mix. made onger because there were rce or four juniors and two competing for spots. " Brad- rd said. Heather Quandt played iNfo. 1 d for UNA. compiling a 9- 11 ari- " That ' s a pretty doggone good record when you think out tt, " sakl Bradford, " con- sidering that she got a k t of the tougher matches. " Wood finished a 8-10. but is expected to rebound now that she has some Division I and II experierKe. " Many of the schools (UNA faces] have )ust as tough players in the No. 2 seed position as are playing No. 1 seed. " Bradford noted. " Mk;helle shoukl play better (in 1991). " Yvette Bolen. the only senior, led the team with a 14-4 record playing No. 3 seed. " Yvette played pretty good, and became the anchor of the team. ' said Bradford. Bradford added that while most every team has good No. 1 or No. 2 seeded players, the majority of collegiate matches are won by the play of the tower- ranked players. The Lady Lions were in better than average shape there, as Lana Yocum went 12-8 playing out of the No. 5 spot and Hope Putnam had a 12-9 slate playing No. 6 seed, while Lori Lovelace achieved an 8-12 taDy in the No. 4 seed stot. " Lana played tough. Hope worked reaDy hard and made the Top 6 as a walk-on. and Lori played pretty good for a frosh athlete, " Bradford said. While the squad finished with a 60-62 record in singles compe- tition, they performed much better in doubles play, winning 31 while k slng only 24. Again the lower-seeded players provkled the difference. at Bden and Lovelace had a fine 12-4 record from the No. 2 dou- bles seed, and Yocum and Putman went 9-6 from the No. 3 seeded team position. Quandt and Wood had an 8- 10 record as the No. 1 seeded doubles pair. Bradford said he is proud of the Lady Lions ' efforts on the court, considering the adversity they faced during the 1990 season. But he added that he is even more excited about being in charge of the " top academk: sports program at UNA. " " They had a combined 3.26 grade point average last spring, and that ' s really impressive con- sidering the time they spent on the road, " he said. Bradford added that the women ' s tennis program has a 93 percent graduation rate, and said he is happy to have the chance to work with such a qual- ity program. He noted that when athletes perform that well in the class- room, while playing on the road so much, sometfiing has to give. " We don ' t want that ' give ' to be in the classroom. " Bradford said, " and we don ' t want to take away ' quality ' study time, so well be doing a tot of training and conditioning, like playing sets and running every day (to better utilize) what time we have. " Bradford said, " (Fve inherited) a young team, but a good team, from Brice. Last year they played a tot of schook on the road. 1 hope we can catch— and beat- more of them at home in " 91.

Casteel) ALWAYS ON THERUN The men ' s cross country team overcame injuries to continue competing By Anissa Palmer ' 1 :« If— 1. Eight members made up the men ' s cross country team— Cole Huffman, Ashley Robinson, Brian Hagood, Chris Truelove, Dwayne Montgomery, Keith Nix, Andy Bussell, and Brian Hall. That seems to be quite a team capable of a season of suc- cess, but injuries suffered by two team members often caused the team to be at a great disad- vantage. Truelove and Hall were the men who suffered injuries. For some of the meets, the team was not able to compete as such; instead, the team members com- peted as individuals. In order for a team to score as a team, five runners must compete. With the loss of Truelove and Hall, the team sometimes only had four available runners; Montgomery and Nix joined the team late in the season, only then raising the number of available runners from four to six. " Hopefully, we can stay in a little better shape, do a better job stretching, " said Coach Kevin Bradford of next season. He said that running every day could help the team prevent injuries. The injuries changed the choice for the most valuable runner, too. Truelove was the star runner until he suffered a pulled groin muscle and was not able to compete in severed meets. The next choice, according to Bradford, was a runner who was always optimistic and greatly encouraging to his fellow teammates— Cole Huffman. The coach said he chose Huffman " not just because of his running but because of his leadership. " Bradford said that new ath- letes are always welcome and encouraged to join the team. To get on the team, he said, " You can just try out for the team " by making a timed run. " If they (stu- dents who try out] have goo enough time, that ' s fine. The make the team. " But there is still a good oppoi tunity at hand for someon whose time is not goo enough— he can still join th team, run at practices, and po! sibly improve enough to con- pete at the meets. A college education comt first, said Bradford, and a perso has to make the grade before h can make the team. " If you ar going to be a student athlete you ' ve got to be on the ball. Yo should put more into school, £ far as I ' m concerned. " As with all athletes, the croi country members also have pre-season health check-up to h sure that all is well before the make those long, hard runs. Since this was his first year i the coach of a team that is on! six years old, Bradford and th CTOss country members can grc together in the season to com " I ' m hoping it ' s going to be a k different, " he said. Since the NCAA is cuttin down the length of the croi country season by limiting it t seven events, Bradford hop this will be advantageous. Rui ning later in the fall could brin more comfortable weather anc hopefully, many victories for tli team. Bradford docs not plan I change the training schedule however. The team will contini to practice in the next season f( two practices a day— one at s o ' clock in the morning with a fiv to nine mile run, and the oth( at two o ' clock in the aftemoc with a shorter run or runs f speed or on hills. In the meat time, the runners should be trail ing on their own, said Bradfon " I think everyone will C015 back in shape ...

Susie Cook was a prime example of what a woman on the run can do. Cook, having won her third straight Gulf South Conference individual champi- onship, was the star runner for the women ' s team. " Susie has definitely been the backbone of our team, " said Coach Kevin Bradford. Bradford felt that Cook helped to make the season a successful one, but he also said that the other women, including Jeanice Slater, Missy Cook, Wendy Bartig, and Sherry Kennemer, were not far behind. " All our women on our team were pretty close [to Susie], " he said, and this proved to be beneficial to the team as a whole. They " ran closer together " which is important when the team receives a score. When team members finish early and finish close together, the team can receive the best score possible. The team was very fortunate that two of the members were also athletes on other teams. Slater played basketball and Kennemer extended her athletic abilities on the tennis court. While the women themselves were the team ' s strong point. injuries caused the team to ha ' a weak side, too. Slater twist( her ankle and Kennem suffered from shin splints and tl flu during the season. " That hurt us because v couldn ' t score as a team, " sa Bradford. Five women had to 1 able to run before they cou receive a team score. Obviously, it takes a great dc of hard work to be able to run f any length of time. When do tl cross country runners begin trai ing for the competitive seasoi " Most runners run ye round. In the summertime o bunch should be picking up little bit, " said Bradford. He sa they should be running about ( to 70 miles a week. Putting extra mileage on tl feet is not the only way that the athletes can be successful at tl events. Bradford gives all of tl runners a little extra advice. " You just have to tell the before the meet not to go too f too soon, " he said. " The key to try to get everybody to pa themselves. " Though coaches usually gel lot of the credit when a tea wins, Bradford feels that the at letes deserve to be in tl limelight. " If you have great ru ners, they ' re going to win, " I said.

Perhaps that explains the atti- tude of Golf Coach Billy Gamble, who said, " We had a very disappointing fall, consider- ing our talent. Our talent was much better than how we played. " That the Lions failed to win any tournaments during the fall season was a bitter pill for Gamble to swallow. " We recruited well, practiced well, and had players who could have done the job for us when it was crucial to winning, " Gamble said, " but they just didn ' t come through. " Gamble said that the golf team ' s problems didn ' t seem to stem from any particular problems, such as illness, grade troubles, or attitude. " We just didn ' t play well enough to win, " he said. " We should have done better, and that ' s the fact of it. " " I ' m not pleased at all, " Gamble added. The university ' s schedule " was great, " noted Gamble, " and for us to perform so poorly with as good a schedule as we had was very disappointing. " The Lions will once again play a tough schedule during the spring season, with the Troy State Tournament first on tap for UNA. " The Troy tourney will be a HEAD GOLF COACH Billy Gamble watches as Trey Jones steps forward with his putter to finish a hole at An-owhead. (Photo by Brigitte Borden) good test for us, " Gamble said. " We need to find out how well we can play early on. " The UNA Invitational is next, then the Lions go on to face all the Gulf South Conference schools, including fall champion Jacksonville State University. " They won everything in the fall, " Gamble said, adding that he thinks that the Gamecocks will continue to remain a tough adversary. Gamble said that he also feels that the Trojans and Valdosta State are just some of the other division schools which could stand a chance to compete in the Nationals. " It could be any one, or several, of the GSC schools that show they ' re out on the course to win and will make the effort to do so, " said Gamble. " I hope we ' ll be in that category; with the personnel we have, we should be, " he said. Golfers who could play a key role for the Lions this spring include Clay Brock, Greg Glover, Andrew Smith, Juan Leon, Pablo Goycoolea, Bill Hux, and David Perry, accord- ing to Gamble. " If we have a team leader, it ' s probably [returning senior] David Perry, " Gamble said, " who shot no. 2 for us behind Chris Lemley last year. " " (Others, such as Juan, Pablo, Bill, and Jerry McGaha, shot well for us at times, but just couldn ' t perform consistently, " said Gamble. UNA began the fall seaS ' playing in the UNA Pizza h Classic, as the Lions ' Purj Team led by three strokes af the first round at Arrowhe Country Club, sparked by Lee two-over par 72 clip. But the Shorter State G squad came from behind to ta the tournament with a fin round 289, while UNA, w had achieved a first round 3 score, could manage only a 3 tally. The winning Shorter St; team finished with a combinati 601 score. Second place Tt nessee Tech came in one stro back, with a 602, while the Ur Purple Team finished with 6 and the Gold Team charted in 307. McGaha of UNA ' s Pur) squad made the All-Toumam team, finishing with a 148 sco In other tournament actic the Lions tied for fourth place the UT-Martin Tri-State G Classic, and settled for fifth pie in the Shorter State Invitatioi in Rome, Georgia. " We just didn ' t play up to c ability, " said Gamble. " Thou we practiced and play hard, didn ' t get the job done. " Gamble said that the play the Lions might be helped more intense motivation, orti the key might be te; leadership. " We didn ' t play well ai where, and that has to chang Gamble said, " if we want win. " " The bottom line is to play facets of the game well, and be a team player, " he said. " A in the desire to win, and the a ' ity, and you should have a vj ning team. " " But, " added Gamble, refl tively, " it ' s like [Gamble ' s fom mentor and Alabama] Coe Bear Bryant used to say, ' Y can coach ' em, and you c motivate ' em, but you can ' t out there and play for ' em.

ConneD went 4-0 to take the urnamcnt, while Brown lished at 3-1 . Ten competitors ied for the championship nors. but ConneD prevailed, itching her opponents with old tennis skiQs and daring play. In the men ' s division, Brian reen of Pi Kappa Alpha ntshed with a 6-0 mark to nip jnner-up Todd Arrowsmith of hi Gamma Delta. Arrowsmith had equaled reen ' s unbeaten streak before ibig to Green in the finals, and losted a 5-1 record. Rain caused the cancellation two scheduled doubles natches and finally the doubles ompetition was non-existent. Weather played a huge in the spring intramurak. " Bid Intramurak Director Greg Lnglc. " e had a very hard time letting the matches in, due to ainouts " n co-ed doubles play, the esidence hall team of Katherinc Juchannon and Lewis Harris, lubbcd " Beauty and the Beast. " lefcated the opposing Christian itudent Center representatives anie Oaks and Jeff Henderson 3 capture the doubles champi- if onship title. Engle sakl that the men ' s divi- sion was particularly hard -fought, with 31 entrants going for the crown before Green claimed it. " We hope to have a larger field in many of our events in the spring, and that the weather will be nice enough to aUow compe- tition, " sakl Engle. In the men ' s singles divisk n of the Intramural Table Tennis Tournament, Bryon Gibson of Sigma Chi defeated David ChanneD to cknch the men ' s title. Gibson finished with a perfect 5-0 record, while Channcll, an independent, had a 4-1 record. The women ' s singles winner was Alpha Gam Christie Maples, who edged out Melinda Burcham. Maples ' taDy was a 4-0 mark. Runner-up Burcham, also an independent, was 3-1. In men ' s doubles action, independents Steve Miller and Keith Harris claimed the cham- pk nship with a 5-0 clip to take second -place Sigma Chis Mark Brown and Roger Picdey. Brown and Presley charted a 4-1 record in the tournament. Women ' s doubles saw Alpha Gam teamnuites Maples and Bridget Connell emerge as vic- tors over Holly Wilson and Angela Butler of Phi Mu. Maples and Connel achieved a 3-0 record, while Wlkon arul Butler were 2-1 in tournament actk n. Engle sakl that there were 34 entrants in the men ' s doubles division, and 12 competitors in women ' s doubles, while singles play saw 10 women and 41 men vie for the respective titles. " We ended with a two-day event in the singles competltton, " said Engle, " although we dkl manage to get the doubles in on a Sunday afternoon. " He added that next season ' s Table Tennis Tournament will likely include several more ping- pong tables, due to the unex- pected number of entrants. The competition was tough, and will probably be again, next time. " Engle said. " When word gets around about the level of the table tennis competitk n, we may have more entrants than we anticipate. " he said. Engle said that this woukl be welcome because it woukl result in better competitton and added, " The way we k ok at it. the more the merrier. " Intramural Flag Football finished with a flurry during the last week of the fall semester, with Rice Hall claiming the women ' s division title and the men ' s team " The Silver Bullets " coming out on top in men ' s divi- sion competition. " The Silver Bullets " outlasted 29 other men ' s division squads to take the champkinship, while Rice HaD proved to be the best of six women ' s division teams. The teams had a maximum number of 20 players on the roster, with a limit of seven com- petitors on the playing fiekj at any one time. " We had a very good turnout in flag footbaB during the faO season, " sakl Engle. There were many organizations and other groups which fielded learns, with the result that we had a very good schedule arKl saw some reaOy good playing, in true intramural competitive fashton.
