The secret to staying aUve is to keep moving. But where the hell are they? All hell should be breaking loose any moment now, unless the chopper put me down way off target. it didn ' t. Something that looks like a grey metal pineapple comes tumbling through the humid air, gleaming dully in the tropical sunlight. I throw myself to the side, scrambling frantically for cover, as the jungle erupts into shrapnel. Then ifs as if someone has switched off the sound. Deaf, numb, bleeding from a dozen minor cuts and bruises, I stumble forward, knowing I ' m damned lucky to be ahve. Before I can congratulate myself on my surv ival, I see the Sandinistan guerilla, winding up like a big league pitcher. But if he ' s Ron Guidry, I ' m Dwight Gudden, and my grenade is in the air before his has even left his hand. I don ' t bother to watch his limbs go sailing high into the foliage; I ' ve got company. Three of them burst from the undergrowth, fir- ing Russian-made AK-47 ' s. The boll of a tree two feet from my head opens like a splintered wound as I duck, tuck and roll, and come up shooting. The impact of the steel -jacketed rounds sends two of my attackers flying, rag dolls with red flowers blossoming from their chests. But where ' s the fourth guerrilla? Too late, I see him crouching under a half -fallen log, and before I can bring my weapon around to bear on him there ' s a spurt of flame from his own. I feel as though I ' ve been hit by a truck. The sky seems to roll overhead, painfully blue, and then I ' m lying on my back m mud and my own blood. Everything starts to turn red, as if the sun is set- ting, then the crimson haze fades to black. Game Over flashes on the screen, and I release the sweaty joystick. Not a very good score, I think, as 1 give the Commando game a solid kick. Okay, now that the Rambo in my soul has been exorcised, I decide to try something more peaceful. An attractive young woman is practicing her shots at one of the pool tables, and I once again regret not being able to play that game. Oh. well; too bad I don ' t have the nerve to ask her to teach me how. Well, how about the Video Trivia game? I ' ve always been good at College Bowl, and the only per- son who beats me at Trivial Pursuits with any kind of regularity is a female friend who has the unfair advantage of having memorized the answers on practically every card. This should be a cinch. I insert my quarter and pick a category. Enter- tainment. I always was good at movies and the theatre, though radio, pop music, and pre-sixties television are more problematic. Lamont Cranston, wealthy ymmg man abend town, was the secret identity of what vintage crime fighter? No sweat. I press the pvsh to play all button rather than wagering points, and the three possi- ble answers appear on the screen. It is, of course, number three, The Shadow, and not Batman or The Green Hornet. I ' ve got 24,000 points. Boris Karloffs real name was (1) William Henry Pratt (2) Archie Leach, or (3) Marion Michael Mor- rison. Hah! (2) and (3) are, respectively, Gary Grant and John Wayne. And anybody who grew up reading Famous Monsters of Filmland knows that Karloff was Pratt. Again, I ' ve bet all, and I have 48,000 points. Uh oh. What English group scored a hit in 1966 with " Wild Thing " ? And then my clumsy finger betrays me; I press play all when I want to wager points. If I miss the question, my score goes back to zero. All I can do is guess, and so I pick (2), Her- man ' s Hermits. Wrong, fool. The answer is (3), The Trogs. C ' est la guerre. I walk away from the game and out of the game room without bothering to answer the fouth question. The halls of E.U.C. are fairly empty. Feeling hungry, even though I had supper not more than an hour ago, I bound up the stairs to the Sweet Shoppe. 1 like the Sweet Shoppe, even if the short- sighted people running it didn ' t see fit to hire me last summer when I was looking for an on-campus job. Their frozen fruit bars are delicious, especially the lemon-lime. It tastes just like a daiquirri. It would taste even better if it could be dipped in rum and refrozen, though. I then go downstairs and exit through the soda shop. There ' s nobody outside sitting around the fish pond, even though it ' s not dark yet and it ' s been the warmest, driest day we ' ve had in over a week. I haven ' t been back here in almost a year. I ' m relieved to see there are no dead goldfish floating on the surface of the pond; that last time I was here they seemed to be dying off in droves. But are there any live ones? I peer into the green-scummed water. Yes, down in the algae-ridden depths, I can barely make out faint orange shapes. On the other side of the pond they float near the surface, but when I ap- proach they dive like miniature submarines. 1 don ' t blame them. If they aren ' t cautious of humans, they may end up being netted and swallowed by drunken frat boys. I walk back around the building, back towards the library, the knowledge that I have over 200 notecards to do for my English 601 class draws me towards that building like some horrible magnet. A girl is swinging by herself on the swing set, as the shadows of the tree lengthen around her. The Segal setting sun makes her long red hair gleam. When she reaches the arc of her swing her dress billows up, reveahng tanned, trim legs. She looks happy. I trudge on, my studies calling. Sometimes I wish I wasn ' t a grad student. Ian McDowell Most of our Fall events have come to pass with Family Weekend w e doubled attendance to 350 last! We brought Bella and Abba and heard them speak on topics varied and unique. Homecoming ' 85 has come and gone with a number of activities all week long. " Feats in the Streets " brought students to compete the Pep Rally and Block Party made it all complete. Our cheerleaders were great and left us in awe to the spirit generated in what we saw! Our Parade featured 26 wild entries decorative cars and original floats students, alumni and even a boat! The Homecoming Queen, Kim Nash, was crowned her court— Laura Boyd, Wendy Crews, Kimberly Phillips and Brenda Volpe became campus renown! Students boogied down to the tunes of " Fresh Air " and had enough energy left to spare. Alcohol Awareness Week brought information we seek connecting the link on how to drink. After all of this, you can still expect yet a few more programs to end the Fall set. Loveboat (Nov. 6) in November Lovefeast (Dec. 2,3) in December are programs that you will want to remember. Our EUC Fellows number twenty-six, where our young freshmen leaders are learning very quick to be... all that they can be while at good ole UNC-G. A celestial phenomenon which happens every 76 years will be the talk of all campuses from far and near. Steve Danforth will give an ole subject new kick (Nov.20 Dec.4) " Halley ' s Comet " will be quite a star gazer ' s trip! UCLS will feature the UNC-G Dance Company (Nov. 22) and Horacio Gutierrez (Nov. 24) be ready for a spectacular evening mi amigo, que te diviertes! Travel on the Orient Express (Nov. 7) and then to Alaska (Nov.30) try not to miss this wonderous extravaganza! Well, this is the end of our update and contribution to this newsletter... at Aunt Harriet ' s we ' ll keep trying to make life at UNC-G just a little bit better! Submitted by: Joanna M. Iwata Assisted by: Bruce J. Michaels Elliott University Center Correspondents SUNBATHERS: Participants in UNC-G ' s Largest and Most Popular Spectator Sport mm And at each body rare The saintly man disdains; I stare, oh God. I stare: My heart is stained with stains. This scrap of verse lingers in my mind, though I can ' t for the life of me remember who wrote it. And casting down rny holy Uymes. I turn my eyes to where The naked girls with silver combs A re combing out their hair. Well, these women aren ' t actually naked, of course, and relatively few of them would seem to possess silver combs, but I can empathize just the same. On those warm days in the early Fall, late Spring, or Summer when the swimsuit-clad young women emerge from their old cocoons, stretching langorously like gorgeous insects drying their damp new limbs in the warm sunlight, it is very hard not to stare. Naturally. 1 am writing from a minority perspective, but there are male limbs as well as female ones browning beneath Phoebus ' s golden rays, and I suppose the significantly larger female portion of this campus ' s population ogles the former with as much fervor as the happily out-numbered male portion ogles the latter. However, I can only write from my own sexual outlook. And so it will continue, as they spread their blankets and towels on the lawns and rub themselves with oils and lotions, and the young men walk or drive past, heads surreptitiously or not so surreptitiously turned, pretending not to look or openly gawking. These are the Rites of Spring, for all that they may take place in any season of warm weather. A final thought; just who is the girl in the striped one-piece bathing suit, anyway? Mike Read, our Photo Editor, pleads ignorance. Life ' s like that. Our glimpses of the sublime tend to be fleeting and second-hand. Ian McDowell The Library, a quiet place to study Coming up Walker Avenue, one ' s first glimpse of campus is the library tower, plain and squat, an immense grey slab hulking against the sky. We enter the monolith and are transformed, attaining a higher state of being. Or such is the theory. Inside, the police woman smiles, heels click against the tile floor, a computer beeps electronic protest as a punchcard is crammed into its gaping maw, the shelves in the card catalog stick and slide, the elevators hum and lurch, and one emerges into the arid modernity of the tower stacks. Everything is clean and bright and spacious, with little of the dark catacomb-like quality that characterizes such edifices as the old graduate library at Chapel Hill. It is impossible to imagine anyone getting lost here, of being accidently lock- ed in for the night. There ' s no need of a hotline or whatever to call for help from when you look up from your desk and realize the overhead lights are turned off and the doors are locked. This school does not have that rite of passage. On the fourth floor, a pale and disheveled film stu- dent curses softly when he finds that the photos of Sophia Loren undressing for Marcello Mastroian- ni have been torn out of Eroticism in the Cinema, and curses ever louder when the chapter on Russ Meyer proves to be even more severely mutilated. In the microfilm room another communications ma- jor, lanky and unkempt and resplendent in his bright red tie, pauses in his perusal of the Playboy inter- view with Ted Turner to ogle a centerfold or two. On the seventh floor some members of the soccer team snicker over a copy oiKnave (not the library ' s). And on every floor young men and women look up from their thick books and exchange furtive glances and even shy smiles. Yes, even here, sex rears its not-so-ugly head. But this is not a " meet market " like the undergraduate library at Chapel Hill, and no one dresses up or puts on make-up to come here. Scholarly pursuits take pre cendence. The hours tick by, the pages turn. Love and Death in the American Novel. Hitchcock: The Dark Side of Genius. Marx and Freud. New Theories of Quantum Physics. The Komodc Dragon and the Lesser Sumatran Monitor Lizards. Ar- chaeology and the Anglo-Saxon Conquest. The Devil Drives: A Biography of Sir Richard Francis Bur- ton. Who among us would be reading these if we weren ' t here? It is good to think we are richer for the ex- perience, though, and perhaps we are. The hours tick by, the pages turn. Ian McDowell An Introduction Almost every university in the United States has a playground— Chapel Hill has its Franklin Street, Florida State has its Tennessee Street. Our version, though, is somewhat more modest. Tate Street and College Hill; both have a quaint, unspoiled, uncommercialized charm. Some are quick to compare our rather small playground to other, larger, perhaps more famouns playgrounds their friends at other universities have told them about. They speak of real excitement, of rock clubs and nightclubs that rival coliseums, of loud music and bright lights and the ability to do all your heart desires. Ours is by necessity a different, more understated approach to collegiate recreation. Despite the fact that a major university is no more that a few feet away, the Tate Street College Hill area doesn ' t reflect any of that hussle or bustle. And that ' s probably a pretty accurate reflection of UNC-G. We don ' t have a football team here and probably never will. The rabid excitement that goes along with a Division One powerhouse stomping the precious bodily fluids out of a Big Ten rival simply does not exist in our small part of the world. No matter how much we try to tell ourselves to the contrary, most of us aren ' t real party animals. We ' re artists, scientists, and professionals, capable of understanding all of the subtleties of our respec- tive crafts, and while we may leave the classroom behind, we seldom leave the academic discipline we learned there. It follows us even into our favorite taverns and coffeehouses. So begins the Pine Needles ' profile of Tate Street and College Hill, an enigmatic suburb of an urban university devoid of the mass hysteria that usually accompanies college life. Right now, in 1986, you may not know this cultural institution at all. But, fifty or so years from now, this section may serve as a link to the beginnings of your adulthood— a way of rekindling old and happy memories of those simpler days gone by. —David Pugh New York Pizza Driving down Tate Street, looking lazily at the various shops that line the street, one quickly notices one establishment that is unlike any other. Even to the casual passerby, something definitely seems amiss. At the corner of Walker Avenue and Tate Street is a squat, white building so stuffed with peo- ple it seems on the point of bursting. Through its large smoked glass windows, hundreds of silhouet- tes can be seen undulating m the hazy darkness. It ' s Tuesday, and this madness is part of the week ly routing for the crowd at New York Pizza, It is hard to communicate the overall ambience of an extremely crowded university tavern if you ' ve never experienced it. The air as thick as Vanilla pud- ding with the smells of stale cigarette smoke, perspiration and alcohol all mingled together for a unique olifactory sensation; loud pop music oozes through the atmosphere from the juke box in the comer that ' s busy cranking out the latest chart top- pers; the lights are soft and low. making everything from the clientele to the tavern itself more attrac- tive. From the kitchen comes a piping hot pizza; with it ' s fresh baked aroma, it creates attention as it glides over the heads of patron balanced atop a waitress ' s steady arm. Then there ' s the veritable river of beer that flows from the bar, pitcher after pitcher of the frothy gold stuff —sixteen kegs on an average Tuesday. Only it can wash away the stress that arises from too many hours in the library or too much time staring at a textbook. There, in the perfect darkness, with the din of a serious party all around, deals are made, relation- ships are forged, and nerves unwind. Many seem to consider this the very pinnacle of collegiate ex- istence and perhaps it is. The Animal Hoicse mind- set is a real thing and if indulged in strategically can be very rewarding, at least in the short run. Which is what going to New York Pizza on a Tues- day night is all about. Truly, it ' s a zoo, but usually we ' re ready for it. NYP is for the harried, neurotic beast that hides behind the academic facade, and tonight this is one beast looking to get wild. College Hill Sundries It ' s an unassuming little tavern, perched on the corner of Mendenhall and Spring Garden. Plants obscure your view as you peer in and try to check out the action. When you approach the entrance door, a strange sensation washes over you; it ' s like stepping into a movie. The sounds of old Motown rattle the frosted glass in the door. Turning the brass knob, you push the door open and step inside. The walls are of dark wood and the lighting is indirect. The mustacheoed man behind the bar slowly turns to the cash register, revealing the motto on his T-shirt: " Located in Greensboro ' s most prominent ghetto. " Welcome to College Hill Sundries, home to the greatest jukebox in this part of the civilized world. While most jukeboxes do little more than provide irritation for the vast percentage of patrons of any tavern, the one at College Hill is different. It doesn ' t have any current pop music. That ' s what radios are for. Here, things are different. Consider the names. The Talking Heads. Gene Pitney. The Beatles. Marvin Gaye. The Rolling Stones. Van Morrison. Aretha Franklin. Creedece Clearwater Revival. This kind of atmosphere is not for people look- ing for a congested good time; folks wanting a chest- to-chest rub through a meat market are advised to go somewhere else. Those who frequent this little tavern do so often, which pleases the management just fine. The beer is cold, the music is lively, and the people are upbeat. What has endeared this lowly beer bar to a small but loyal following is its atmosphere. Here, the fragrant aroma of cold imported beers mingles with the soft smell of burning tobacco, creating a uni- que but comfortable ambiance. Music form the 50s and 60s helps to carry us back to another time which, and that ' s all to the good. At a time in our hves when all we do is expand the limits of our short- term memories, it ' s sometimes nice to think back a little farther than last week. Friars ' Mr. Jackson Mr. Jackson doesn ' t give interviews anymore. He says that every so often for the last decade, another student comes by from yet another student publica- tion and asks him for yet another interview. Sometimes, two students from the same publication come by during the same week and ask him the same question; " Mr. Jackson, I ' d like to interview you for my story in the... " You certainly can ' t fault him. Three interviews a year, every year for the last ten, would tend to sour one towards talking to cub reporters. And you can ' t really fault the aspiring writers either; they are just trying to seize on a good story idea. Mr. Jackson is an interesting character and has been selling fine wine and gourmet coffee for about as long as anybody can remember. And his place is quaint and quiet, filled with the sort of com- fortable clutter that can captivate even regulars for hours. Sure, Friar ' s is the kind of place that we as students keep coming back to because it ' s so much more fun than a regualr convenience store. It ' s a place that feels good, like an old pair of slippers. Mr. Jackson has even seen fit to paste the conser- vative and commonsencical sayings of Calvin Coobdge on the wall, clipped from the various times Newsweek has honored his homespun philosophy for doing business and getting things done. This lit- tle collection of his wisdom is taped to the wall next to the tables where patrons nibble on bagels and slurp down expresso. And the way Mr. Jackson runs Friar ' s is just as satisfyingly unpretentious. Everything is very much up-front. ' There is no question about how fresh the coffee is; you grind it yourself. If tea is your bag, it ' s his too, with more that seventy-five flavors sit- ting on the shelf. In fact, almost all the little things that make life pleasant can be found in Mr. Jackson ' s little store. So it ' s okay if you don ' t want to do interviews anymore, Mr. Jackson. We still love you anyway. Sav-Way On the surface, it may appear strange U) celebrate a supermarket in a college yearbook, but in a very certain sense it needs to be dune. This is no ordinary supermarket. This is the Sav- Way. This is where we buy toothpaste and beer and munchies and beer and hot dogs and beer and sodas. And beer. They sell a lot of beer at the Sav-Way— ventable mountains of twelve packs. It ' s reasonably priced and most college students are on a very low budget, and we all know what that means: Schaefer or Blatz or whatever ' s on sale. A l)eer supermarket is very convergent. Of course they sell all the other necessaties that make life worth living— toilet paper, toothpaste, roach bombs and such. They ' re open late, so if you run out of something at the proverbial last minute you can still run to the Sav- Way. Just be sure to slip in before they lock the door. But convenient store hours and good prices on beer are not the reason we are devoting space to this establishment. Instead, consider this; during a four year stint year at UNC-G, it ' s almost impossi- ble to have not gone to the Sav-Way at least once a week if not more often. So when you look back on your college career years from now, think that you may have only had two semesters in an English classroom, just on year, but you ' ve spent four going to the Sav-Way. ' The place used to have a reputation all over the city as a place you shouldn ' t be after dark. It was kind of dark and sleazy and people worried a lot about getting mugged or just hassled. There ' s not too much of that left now - and that ' s a shame. " - a ' ' Tate-streeter " Last Act It ' s a sleepy Wednesday night at The Last Act, a small, rather unobtrusive restaurant and bar on Tate Street. Scattered clumps of people huddle in quiet corners, sharing a drink and a moment. Time slips by and early evening becomes late evening. As another midnight approaches, something happens again as it has happened dozens of times before. Almost directly across the street, a show lets out of Aycock Auditorium. As it does, this sleepy tavern fills with boisterous theatre patrons stopping for a nightcap and a long talk about the production they ' ve just seen. But as time slips by an interesting change occurs. The theatre-goers are gradually replaced by performers. Soon, the back porch is in- vaded and occupied by actors and technicians, all gesticulatmg wildly as they rerun the show they ' ve just performed. They laugh and crack endless in- jokes. talking about the insanities and inanities they ' ve had to endure druing the course of putting on their show. It seems this particular nightspot fulfills two pur- poses for us at UNC-G. It gives those in the per- forming arts community a chance to blow off a lit- tle steam and it provides the rest of us a chance to see them as real people doing the things real peo- ple do. ARA Herb Eats Here (And So Do We) When many of us first came to UNC- G, the spectacle of the ARA cafeteria in- trigued us for reasons we could never really comprehend. The food wasn ' t par- ticularly good; not bad for institutional fare but certainly nothing to alert the media about. It isn ' t much in terms of restaurant atmosphere, either, resembl- ing a barn more than a place where civilized people would gather to break bread and share the end of the day. Still, we come back, meal after meal, year after year— drawn for reasons we can never really figure out. Even when we eventually move off campus, establishing our own places, we return like salmon swimming upstream to our birthplace. Maybe that analogy is a little heavy and sounds a bit strange, but it ' s certainly no stranger than some of the goings-on in either of the four dining halls. Consider the people dressing up in the latest fashions— straight out of Rolling Stone or Glaynour— just to eat a cheeseburger in ARA. And let ' s not forget the sight of an entire freshman hall marching to the cafeteria to eat en masse, looking more like a platoon of lost Marines than college students; well- dressed girls clamoring for the highest profile spots in State, the Scope-i-teria; entire tables in North filled with actors dressed in the bizarre working costumes of the day. Then there ' s the Mausoleum- Spencer— the quiet room in the back. Complete with vaulted ceilings, it possesses a hushed atmosphere that feels more like a church than a college cafeteria. What is the attraction? What are we looking for ' ? If it ' s not the food or the at- mosphere, what is it that brings us back time and time again? Perhaps, it is the " us " in the last state- ment. Maybe, just maybe, the cafe is a familiar stomping ground where we can be comfortable; a place where the strong bonds of friendship are formed again and again. Chances are, some of us will marry a person we met in the dining hall. Others may start a business or create a partner- ship lasting for decades over " just one more cup of coffee " at lunch. Home is where the heart is, or in this case, where the stomach is. The cafeteria, like the kitchen table of our parents ' homestead, is where plans are drawn and dreams are realized. Man does not live by bread alone. In the case of the ARA cafeteria, that homily is definitely true. —David Pugh From the simple to the philosophically intricate, from good- humored to obscene, graffiti is alive and well at UNCG. And students seem to like it that way. Starting from the " Rock " in front of the cafeteria (where crudely painted slogans have long been tradi- tion), grafitti artists have spread their sometimes artful, mostly awful, messages across the UNCG campus. From " TKE " spray-painted on grass and sidewalks to the proverbial writing on the (bathroom) walls, very little of UNCG has escaped the touch of pen or paint. " We have rules about graffiti, " said a UNCG Residence Hall director. " But people don ' t seem to take them seriously. " He pointed to the scrawl- ed " Dork " which has adorned the back of North Spencer Hall for more than 5 years now as evidence of his claim. Campus Security is working ti crack down on graffiti and prevent further defacement of school proper- ty, citing the money wasted each year in repairing damage done by graffiteers. But for the people who found " heaven on the 7th floor " of Cone Hall, thought Bill the Cat should run and win as a presidential candidate, or thought TKE and Alpha Delta Pi were important enough to tattoo a sidewalk for, graffiti can be a form of honest self-expression. And while that energy might possibly find better outlets, it is, in itself, a very impor- tant and precious quality, one that UNCG should hang on to. —Mark A. Corwm 5 ' foo " t ' ' r : K- H " .. ' ' . ? " V w • C ,y -o Making Changes: Spencer Is Renovated " Yes, we will be renovating both Spencer halls this year, " said one Residence Life official. But most students were skeptical— after all, they ' d heard about renovations beginning there for the last two years with nothing materializing. When so many female students enrolled that North Spencer had to be kept open for the fall most people gave up on even slim hopes. " Maybe next year, " was the consensus. But spring semester brought a new story. Students arrived back from the Christmas break to find fenced off like a prisoner of war camp and fronted by large semi-trailers filled with construc- tion parts. Within days even more evidence began to surface— tons of plaster carted away by trucks, holes smashed in outer walls, tiny one-man bulldozers running in and out of base- ment doors with load after load of crush- ed cement and dirt. Peering in through blindless windows, students no longer saw cozy dorm rooms, but packs of workmen who peered back with just as much interest. It wasn ' t long before everyone realized this time, the renova- tions were for real. And, just as suddenly, they were forgotten— becoming little more than an oddity to glimpse on your way to and from class. Beyond the edge of the cam- pus proper, across from McNutt Center, half a block of houses and an old church were leveled as just another part of the university ' s Master Plan for expansion. And only high rise residents glimpsed the clearing of a large part of the woods behind Cone Hall to make way for another parking lot. In all, very little fuss was made about the whole affair. Accor- ding to Residence Life, that made them very happy. Now finally started, renovations and building will be a part of the day to day life of UNCO students for years to come. As the new Physical Activities Complex and Art Center begin construction and other projects are brought up to speed, there is only one thing for certain— the campus of the future will never be quite the same as it was in 1986. Mark A. Corum The Miss Neo-Black Society Pageant 1985 A standing room only crowd packed Cone Ballroom October 4th for a chance to see what posters and other advertisements had billed as " Crystal Images of Class. Elegance, and Beauty. " What they came away with were memories of a Miss Neo-Black Society Pageant notable for both enter- tainment and quality. And, for many members of the audience, there was a clearer understanding of the NBS as an organization made up of people rather than just people of a single race. Because the Miss NBS pageant is not just a " black " event, but an event of people. The talent, enthusiasm, and feel- ing shown there each year transcends petty racial bounds - and for that reason it is, as one audience member put it, and " eye opening experience for anyone who hasn ' t ever come to one before. " Eight contestants vied for the covented Miss NBS title in competition through several different categories. A reception prior to the pageant itself gave judges Bettina Shuford, Pat Bethea, Emory Rand, Brenda Cooper and Mike Stewart and chance to meet the contestants and judge their interper- sonal skills. The actual pageant began with an in- troduction by NBS president Antonia Monk, the singing of the Black National Anthem, and the in- troduction of emcees Cynthia Moore (a former Miss NBS and UNCG Homecoming Queen) and Robert Bryant, a member of UNCG ' s basketball squad. They introduced the opening event of the pageant, a dance involving all the contestants to the song " Rhythm of the Night. " The real competition began after the dance and situational dress segments were done - and after a break provied by the NBS ' Ebony in Motion Dance Company. When it came time for the talent com- petition, the contestants launched into it with in- credible vigor. An original monologue by freshman Telia Hand began the segment on a very positive note as " To- day ' s Black Woman, " and sophomore Sabrina Butler kept it in motion with a dance performed to the song " Prime Time. " A more classical chord was struck by freshman Rojulyanne Finch, who played the piano, and another freshman, Audrey Barbour, who perform- ed a spoken piece by Nikki Giovanni. Following them was Angel Strong, who performed a vocal ren- dition of " The Greatest Love of All " that brought the audience to its feet. But not failing to continue the momentum was Qwanda Loftin. whose tribute in music and words to Billie Holiday was another audience favorite - but the hit of the talent competition was Viveva Williams, whose rendition of " Amazing Grace " on the flute was absolutely electrifying. Following this very hard act to follow in fine form was Kathy Gates, who sang " He is My All " to end the competition.

There, they answered questions pulled at random from a glass bowl which asked their opi- nions on issues, how they would behave in certain situations, or what they would if given a special op- portunity. Of all categories, this one served up the most cheers and the most heartbreaks as they voted their opmions of their favorite contestants ' words. Unlike may pageants where such questions are simply wmdow dressing, judges were told that one of the main attributes they were to look for was how well the future Miss NBS could express herself in public and think on her feet. The results showed this markedly. Miss NBS 1984-85. Angel Chavis. took a final walk onstage prior to the crowning of the new win- ner to music and a taped farewell message. And as she sat by and watched from the back of the stage. the presentations were made. To the approval of the audience, Viveca Williams beat a path to and from the podium as she recieved awards as Miss Congeniality, Most Talented, and as second runner-up. Qwanda Loftin was then nam- ed as the first runner up. After a tense moment, Kathy Oates was finally named as the new Miss NBS 1985-86. After hugg- ing her predecessor as Chavis placed the crown on her head, she made her way up the center runway to wave tearfully to the audience amidst a blaze of flashbulbs. Mark A. Corum Living Learning: UNCG ' s Residential College R.C.— A Combination of Philosophy Fun 7:30 a.m. The alarm screams at you. Your body sleeps on as your brain registers the fact that you have a nine o ' clock class. No sweat. You slap the snooze button with satisfaction and roll back over into slumberland. Your bare feet finally hit the floor at ten till nine. While most would panic at such a tardy awakening, you yawn. Everything is under control, for your class does not meet in some God for- saken wasteland such as the B E Building, but right in your own living room. So you head downstairs with your cup of Java, and you don ' t care about your tousled appearance, because this is the Residential Col- lege, where it ' s the stuff between your ears that counts the most. Peo- ple around here are more impressed with statements of intellectual rebellion than Calvin Klein jeans or perfectly arranged eyelashes. There ' s too much to THINK about, too many UNRESOLVED and VITAL ques- tions to answer for once and for all: what is the purpose of cheesy poetry? Just who did actually kill that folded dog? Can ear-wax statues be con- sidered art? Did Socrates have his head screwed on straight, or was he crazy like the rest of us? Inquiring minds want to know. Murray Arndt, director and guru of the Residential College, will advise students to put aside for the time be- ing their professional money- grubbing aspirations, and instead to experience life and learning as " amateurs. " An amateur partakes in a venture not for money, but because it brings a joyous intellectual satisfac- tion. Therefore, an amateur student is fascinated by Walt Whitman, not burdened. This intellectual environ- ment, embodied by the Residential College, will ideally create an in- tuitive, reflective and sensitive student. Ideology aside, living in Mary Foust can be one hell of a lot of fun. There is always some sort of craziness go- ing on somewhere, whether it ' s tur- ning the second floor women ' s bathroom into a steamroom or a for- bidden " tea-party " on the roof when the R.D. is out of town. Futhermore, when you live in Mary Foust, you are liable to know just about everyone elsethat inhabits the place. Sometimes this fact can drive you crazy, but it usually promotes a real sense of family. Everybody ' s family drives them a liitle crazy, right? At R.C., however, it is a constructive craziness, an intellectual intensity, a philosophical free-for-all that makes its participants look at the world, not as it is, but as it ought to be. Mike Read Art On Paper The 21st Annual Art On Paper Exhibit and a suc- cession of visiting artists highlighted the Weathers- poon Art Gallery ' s twenty-fifth year at UNC-G. The various MFA thesis exhibits in the spring semester had welcome company with a combined faculty show in April. Fall 1 985 got off to a positive start with the news that the North Carolina state legislature voted to match gallery funds to build a new art center here at the school by 1990. This, of course, will mean ad- ditional space, space that is vital if the gallery is ever to show many of the pieces that are part of the permanent collection. The collection is predominantly 20th century American art and is valued at around 15 million dollars. The Greensboro community provides most of the financial support for the gallery. Many of the works have come from private donations. A retrospective on B.J.O. Nordfeldt, an early 20th century American expressionist, was the year ' s first exhibit. During his eclectic career Nordfeldt work- ed in virtually every major style of this century. Thret ' visitmg- artists came in the Fall through the support uf the HerLtert and Louise Falk Visiting Ar- tist Endowment. Gary Burnley showed his unusual spherical sculptures and colorfully designed rugs that visitors were encouraged to tread on. Michael Zwack, a fairly successful artist living in New York City, displayed his " Golden Warriors " portraits and " History of the World " landscapes. These works transformed photographs from National Geographic into earthy, timeless pieces. Mike Smith entertain- ed everyone with his performing character known as Mike Smith. He domostrated new possibilities for video, performance, and Moon Pies. Arrangements for the visiting artists were made by Donald Droll and Sue Canning. The highlight of the year was probably the 21st . nnual Art On Paper Exhibition, sponsored by the Dillard Paper Co. and the Weatherspoon Guild. It impressed viewers with its variety, much expand- ed from past years. Included in the show were works by several vi ' ell-known artists from the present and works on paper by artists from the first half of the century. The Art department faculty was well represented. Many of these works were high points vf the show. Galler - director Bert Carpenter show- ed, as did John Maggio, who ' d already had a one- man show earlier in the year, " My Wilderness " , an unusual black and white illustration created by Marc Eisenberg out of paper, acrylic, and sand, was chosen to become part of the Dillard collection of the gallery. Two works, " Fire and Rain " by Elizabeth Mur- ray and " Open Air " by John Marshall, were donated to the gallery by various donors in honor of Assis- tant Director Donald Droll, who had died shortly after the show opened. The works have in common a free painterly style with no focal point. A memonaJ service was held in the gallery area, a sad postscript to an exciting year of visual fine art. —Cary Wilson % ' 1 Mf- 4% ■ X e TA nH® ' ,d ' f V o . v ■A o .v3 v .0 GV3 -4- V ' 9 -O Q- ' %.

Writing Program " Raise your hand if you want to be a writer, " says prize-winning poet and novelist Fred Chappell. Chap- pell ' s face, sometimes so grimly sinister that one reviewer described him as looking like he just knocked over a gas station, struggles to retain that facade and suppress his characteristic shy grin. Most of his beginning fiction class raise their hands. " All right, " he says, abandon- ing the struggle, " who just wants to ivriteT ' The chagrined many mentally kick themselves as the clever few smile and nod. Lee Zacharias, the author of Help- ing Muriel Make It Through The Night and Lessons, tries to tactfully tell a young woman in her advanced fiction workshop that her long novella is, well, hopeless. She decides to begin with the question of background details and overall verisimilitude. " I don ' t mean to nitpick, but if you set a story in Manhattan you ought to be able to spell the borough ' s name cor- rectly, especially if that ' s your title. And I can ' t help noting that the heroine is supposed to live in a posh, upper-class neighborhood, but you ' ve given her a Forty-Second Street ad- dress that would put her over an adult bookstore or peep show. This reads like you ' ve never been north of Virginia. " The author looks like she ' d like to crawl under her chair; mer- cifully, she leaves at the break and doesn ' t come back. It ' s a difficult business, trying to teach people how to write. In fact, it ' s sometimes impossible. Oh, natural talent can be amplified through ap- plied discipline, but if that talent ' s not there to begin with it ' s a lost cause. The faculty of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program here at UNC-G would be the first to admit that. " Of course the workshop can ' t turn anyone into a writer who isn ' t already a latent one, " says Fred Chappell. " WTiat it can do is give him a disciplin- ed avenue in which to exercise his talents. You have to produce a certain amount of work, work that is read and criticized by people much like yourself. If you ' re lucky, that helps you get better. " It helped me get better. I entered the program in August of 1981 and received my MFA in May of 1983. The longest and best of my handful of published stories was written to help me meet my requirement of fif- ty pages a semester. Well, actually, it was written to keep me from being bored during a seminar in Shakespeare ' s Greek and Roman plays, most of which I dislike, but I then submitted it to the class. If I hadn ' t taken heed of what the visiting lecturer, novelist Mark Smith, and the more perceptive students said about it and revised it accordingly, it would not have been saleable. Of course, if I had not ignored the less perceptive students, like the fellow who com- pared it to, so help me God, Poe ' s " Cask of Armadillo " [.sic], I would not have even attempted selling it. As with any kind of feedback, you have to pick out what ' s really valuable and disregard the rest. The MFA Writing faculty consists of Fred Chappell, Lee Zacharias, Tom Kirby-Smith, and Robert Watson. Zacharias specializes in fiction, Kirby- Smith in poetry; Chappell and Wat- son teach both. There are also classes in playwriting listed in the Graduate School catalog, but that ' s deceptive, as there ' s not been a seperate workshop in that discipline taught in the English department in many years. Watson and Chappell have been known to do individual tutorials in it, but both would readily admit it is not their specialty. These four people have different teaching methods. Some are active participants and don ' t hesitate to tell a student to ignore everything everyone else said in class and then launch into a lengthy critique of what works in a poem or story. Others prefer to act more as referees, monitoring the give-and-take of class discussion but letting the other students supply the principal feed- back. Both approaches work. Some have their students run off photocopies for everyone in class. Others prefer to read the students works aloud. Both methods have their advantages and drawbacks. Both are preferable to what we had to do when I studied Creative Writing as an undergraduate at Chapel Hill, where we had to carefully type out our stories on sloppy ditto sheets and crank them out on the department ' s cantankerous duplicating machine. Our hands would be stained for days. It ' s nice to know we ' re ahead of Chapel Hill in some things. In fact, UNCG has what is widely regarded as one of the finest creative writing programs in the country. The pro- gram is also affiliated with The Greejisboro Review, one of the more prestigous literary journals. Works from the Renriew are often anthologiz- ed; two years ago, John Updike selected a piece entitled " Morrison ' s Reaction " for the annual Best American Short Stories. I still remember how impressed I was when Fred read the story, by then-MFA candidate Stephen Kirk, aloud in the workshop. " That should be published somewhere, " I thought. I can ' t speak for Steve Kirk, but I do know this. If I hadn ' t entered the program here I might still be a writer, but I ' d be a much worse one. As with everything else, we should be grateful for any improvement. —Ian McDowell The MFA " WvtV UNC-G a public I! E. L.

Ian McDowell r » » A look at some of the students, administrators, and faculty members who make UNC-G what Dr. Chris Anderson English Dr. Chris Anderson, of the UNC-G English Department, clearly loves to teach, an attitude that many might find refreshing in a decade when so many professors seem to value research over classroom instruction. " I got into this business because 1 wanted to teach, " says Dr. Anderson; " I went to a very good liberal arts college and fell in love with the life of a teacher. Even to this day I feel most like myself when I ' m in the classroom. Writing is harder for me, perhaps more of a challenge, but teaching is what comes naturally. " Which doesn ' t mean that he is completely without interest in publication. When Pine Needles inter- viewed Dr. Anderson in the Fall he was putting the final polish on his first book. Reporting the Apocalypse, the Rhetoric of Contemporary American Nonfiction, a study of the prose styles of Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, and Joan Didion. At the same time, he was just beginning compar- ing Mailer ' s Of a Fire on the Momi and Wolfe ' s The Right Stuffmth Michael Collins ' book on the Apollo moonshot and the more recent autobiography of Chuck Yeager. These may seem odd subjects of study for a man whose dissertation was titled " Rhetoric and the Limits of Language; A Study of Coleridge, Carlyle and Emerson. " " What I ' m interested in is style— how words and sentences work in non-fiction prose. I ' ve been able to move from English Romanticism to Contem- porary American non-fiction because I ' m not real- ly tied to any one historical period; a rhetorician can afford to be a generalist. " Despite his being trained primarily as a Roman- ticist, Dr. Anderson ' s classroom interests have in- deed moved him more and more in the direction of rhetoric and compostion since he came here three years ago after receiving his Ph.D. from the Univer- sity of Washington. His main responsibilities now include such Composition Theory classes as English 322 and 522, where he describes his job as one of " teaching teachers to teach, " and English 661, the graduate-level course in the history of Rhetoric. " I think of myself as a writing teacher more than anything. I teach writing on all levels. Indeed, that ' s where the time I spend in the classroom and that spent behind the typewriter feed into each other. Half of the articles I ' ve published have come directly from various classroom experiences. " I very much like my students here— particularly the older ones. They ' re very bright, but unpreten- tious and down-to-earth. I have a very low threshold for preppiness, and UNC-G has relatively little of that. This place is unpretentious. " That distaste for pretension may have been a fac- tor in Dr. Anderson ' s decision to settle here, despite his being courted by a prestigous Northern univer- sity. " UNC-G just seemed like a sane, comfortable, reasonable place to teach. People do a lot of good work here, and it ' s turned out to be a very good place for me. I ' ve grown intellectually, and been able to develop in ways I wouldn ' t at other places. " I don ' t miss the ivy on the walls. This place is like one of the really good Greensboro restaurants— Harry ' s for instance. Good food and no decor. " Ian McDowell Dr. Randolph Bulgin English With his grave and reserved demeanor and general air of scholarly dignity, Dr. Randolph Bulgin seems the archetypical professor of English literature. Certainly, it does not take a visitor to his classroom very long to discover that his air of calm formality does not detract from the intensity uf his committment towards his field and his students. Dr. Bulgin received his Ph.D. from Princeton after previously attending Davidson, and he has also studied at the University of Bristol. The subject of his dissertation was T%e Way We Live Now. a work that, while having gradually been recognized as TroUope ' s best book, is not the one by that author that even English Majors are the most likely to have read. In the Fall of 1964 Dr. Bulgin began his teaching career here at UNC-G. where he is one of the English Department ' s specialists in Victorian literature, teachmg the 19th Century English novel. Yet his expertise and interests extend well beyond that particular area; anyone who has taken Enghsh 549 (Literary Criticism: The Major Texts) under him soon realizes that he is a bit of a neoclassicist and a definite adnurer of Samuel Johnson. At first he seems reluctant to accept the former designation. " Well, I suppose that I am, but I ' m not sure that the old distinctions between Neoclassicism and Romanticism really mean that much. I think that all really great works of literature have a foot m both camps, no matter what the larger period to which they belong. But 1 do have a real dislike of extreme emotionalism, and I don ' t especially ap- preciate the kind of literature in which the writer spills his guts out onto the page. If that makes me a Neoclassicist, so be it. I do know that I generally prefer understatement to overstatement. Dr. Bulgin feels that students may not always ful- ly realize the opportunities that are open to them at an institution like UNC-G. " Students really do have an excellent education available to them here. Still, I might wish that hey would pay attention to still. I might wish that they would pay attention to the fact that some classes are necessary, as well as disciphne like English, it all fits together in the building of a body of specialized knowledge, and there are certain subjects you definitely need. " I favor a balanced, comprehensive, historical ap- proach to English studies— one that covers enough material to give you sufficient background to feel at ease with any branch of literature. What literature ought to do in the end. is to free you. and this may include freeing you of your own time and place. There are problems in the world other than the problems of young people, and it ' s not going to hurt them to rfead works that were written before 1800. " Another of my real convictions is that Literature is an art first and foremost, that it is only inciden- tally psychology, sociolog ' . or history. And though it may remind you of what you are, it should remind you of what other people are. too. " —Ian McDowell Mary Helms Anthropology Anthropology is the study of man and his culture. But to really appreciate the unique lifestyles of other races, one must live another life. Dr. Mary Helms, Anthropology professor and department head at UNC-Greensboro, has lived many lives through research and field study in Central America. Twenty years ago, when Dr. Helms first began field work among the Miskito Indian tnbes, she gained a better understanding of what it is like to live in an unusual environment and participate in an alien culture. The expenence was fascinating and fnghtening but also special. It isn ' t an everyday oc- curence for a person to be privileged to travel and live in an unpredictable culture, learning the rituals and beliefs that bind a society together. Dr. Helms was naturally curious as to what awaited her when she left the United States for Nicaragua. Once she reached the village where she would spend a year living and learning the customs of its people, she says she " became a walking source of fun. " The first lesson Dr. Helms received was on speaking the Miskito langTiage. She acquired the rudiments of the tongue within six weeks. " I couldn ' t understand what was being said to me, but I did learn the vocabulary and speech. I began to think in Miskito before I would in English. Even- tually, I began to dream in Miskito. That ' s when I figured I was submerged in it. It was strange go- ing back and dealing with English. Sometimes to- day I ' ll think o f a Miskito word or concept before thinking in English. " Her second lesson was on building a fire, a practical skill she insists she wasn ' t successful in attaining. While studying in Asang, the natives ' village. Dr. Helms learned firsthand some of the hazards plagu- ing the villagers. One day, while measuring fields for cultivation, she almost stepped on a coral snake, a highly venomous species. However, the dangers involved were few and constituted another adjust- ment to the indians ' daily lives. " I had a job to do. I don ' t remember feeling scared; I felt uncertain. There were so many things to cope with moment to moment. " " I was highly visible. I didn ' t know how to behave. I knew it was important for me not to goof! I had no idea of what would be considered right or wrong behavior. You have to perform but you don ' t know what to do. There was a sense of being without a culture. I had a hard time keeping my identity. I remember sitting on the porch outside in front of my house I lived in and saying, ' My name is Mary Helms. I ' m and anthropologist and I ' m hving in this community for a year. " After her stint was up, Dr. Helms returned to the States and began teaching Anthropology. But twen- ty years after her original study in Nicaragua, she returned for a visit. " It was a reaffirmation that I really cared, that I came back, " she said. On her trip she was asked to inspect an Hondurian refugee camp. Traveling up the tropical river, she experienc- ed a close association with the river, the villages and the dugouts, and realized that it was a unique but good life. " I felt very priviledged to be there. It was back to basics, something I found very satisfying. I enjoyed meeting people I met earlier, and I was welcomed like a long-lost relative. I felt I was in a time warp and had a sense of coming home again. " These trips have carried Dr. Helms to vastly con- strasting countries and peoples. She has traveled to Nicaragua, Europe, The Hondtuas, Columbia and Canada. While on these excursions she suffered from malaria, hookworm and exotic foods. Nonetheless, as an anthropologist. Dr. Helms is more aware of the many ways ideas can be initiated. By exchanging diverse solutions, she insists that new channels open to change and tolerance, especially as the globe continues to reveal itself. Currently, Dr. Helms is writmg her fourth book. Her other literary works mclude journal articles and monographs. A member of the American An- thropology Association, The Southern An- thropological Society and the American Society of Ethnohistory, she is also the Anthropology representative to the American Association of Ad- vanced Sciences, which is the parent organization presiding over the independent fields of science. Nan Leuns «si«P-«« ' 1 mk Dr. Jerry Meisner Physics " I ' m not a good spectator, " is how Dr. Jerry Meisner describes one of the driving forces behind both his professional and personal life. " We, as Americans, just love to be spectators— and there ' s something wrong with that. When kids are little they want nothing more that to climb in themselves— but we ' re just content to watch. " " In Europe, people argue over dinner— and it ' s expected for people to disagree. Here people seem more and more willing to take what some authori- ty figure, like Ronald Reagan, says and just accept it blindly, " says Meisner. As a physics instructor. Meisner sees thmgs from a different perspective than do many of his peers. In an age of word-people and numbers-people. Meisner would like to " find a way in which people can include more science m a liberal arts education. " He thinks the key to this is getting students doing something. We ' re all egocentric— we all want to be in charge— but if all a teacher does is have his students read what others have said it can be pret- ty meaningless. " Known for his involvement with the nuclear freeze movement, Meisner still believes that people who see science as dangerous are misguided. " Learn- ing is not good or evil But science can ' t work in a vacuum— the Manhattan project brought that home. I think physicists have learned their lesson better than some others—chemists, for instance, who sometimes don ' t even think about what they ' re doing to the environment. The University should work to teach students so they won ' t go to work for some company on abstract chemical problems and wake up ten years from now thinking ' My God, this stuff is killing people. ' " This urge for teaching is reflected in the collec- tion of cartoons which adorn Meisner ' s office. " I admire the cartoonists ' efficiency in making something interesting and funny so that people can see things they would normally overlook. " Dressed in professorial attire plus runnmg shoes, Meisner evidently takes his own advice about do- ing rather than observing. " My wife and I have been involved in folk music and dance for years now- learning and performing dances from the British Isles, the mountains, and all over the world. It ' s allowed me to meet people and get involved with some of the international students on campus. Dance and music are everywhere and they ' re something you can share in. Whether it ' s learning a Bulgarian folk dance or pipe music, I think it ' s better to do that to just read about it. " I think it ' s important to keep the thinking in education along with activities. Doing helps me clear my head— and I think that diversions that let you operate in a slightly different dimension can help you see things from a different point of view. " With a teaching philosophy concentrating on get- ting students to work actively, Meisner plays to a mixed house in the classroom. " I ' d rather be remembered by students. " he states emphatically. Favorably or not, as someone who was demanding. Some people respond to that— some don ' t. Some think it ' s a waste of time. Too many people think of universities as trade schools rather than places which generate and act as repositories for knowledge. I don ' t believe in that. " Mark A. Corum Dr. Thomas Tedford C ommunications " These are depressing times for people interested in civil liberties, " says Dr. Thomas Tedford. As a UNC-G communications professor who has devoted much of his life to teaching the value of those liber- ties both in class and the outside world, he would seem to be one qualified to make such a judgement. Tedford has become known over the years for the classes in semantics and Freedom of Speech and Censorship he teaches at UNC-G and his unusual way of teaching them. Outside the university, he is known across the state as one of the founding members of the North Carolina Civil Liberties Union (the state affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union), which is dedicated to helping peo- ple whose rights have been violated fight back within the law. His knowledge in the field has allow- ed Tedford to be called, as one lawyer put it, " One of the most, if not the most, knowledgeable non-lawyers on the subject of the first amendment I have ever met. " That lawyer added " I ' d hate to meet him in court on the opposing side. " After having his textbook on Free Speech in America published in 1985, many feel this reputa- tion will spread - though Tedford himself would rather be known by the company he keeps in the NCCLU and as a member of People for the American Way - an anti-censorship group founded by Norman Lear that is very active in the South. Ironically, he sees himself in one of the places where the first amendment is at worst risk and cites the 1985 NC Obscenity Laws as " just another exam- ple of how far some people will go to censor. " Ted- ford is adamant in feeling that " We can only hope for a change in the Supreme Court if we ever want to have the full freedom guaranteed us in the Bill of Rights again. " And while this would seem a very future-oriented view, Tedford thinks we often have to look to the past for answers and precedents. " Sometimes peo- ple don ' t know what they want at any one minute - but looking back at precedents can often tell you if something is good or bad before you do it. " Go- ing along with this view is Tedford ' s hobby of col lecting political memorabilia - a hobby that brings students and former students to his door during each new election with buttons, posters and other remembrances to add to his collection. " I think you have to educate people, " is what Ted- ford sees as most important in seeing the freedoms of speech and press maintained. " People don ' t like admitting they were wrong, so its a lot easier to educate them before they make mistakes than after. " Through his classes and out of class teaching, Ted- ford is giving people just this kind of education. And in a field where the worst enemy is often frighten- ed ignorance, education is sometimes the only weapon which works. Mark A. Corum Anita Straugn Firefighter Flames leap and converge. Swiftly, the fire guts a burning house, searing through a foundation that seems too strong to be shaken. In the distance, a shrill siren penetrates the night, signaling that emergency help is on the way. For a city as large as Greensboro, it is necessary that an adequate number of fire stations be available to render service during such a disaster. Qualified personnel are also on call to serve as first aid techni- cians as well as to combat fires. Anita Straugn, a tirewoman from Precinct Five on Friendly Ave., has served as a firefighter since 1979, completing her basic training in the second class of w omen to graduate from the fire training program instituted in 1978. At 7:45 in the morning a typical day at the sta- tion begins. On goes the impressive uniform, con- sisting of a coat, tie, long sleeve white shirt, black pants, socks and shoes. Within fifteen minutes, that uniform is in place. " Doesn ' t take long to get dress- ed at all, " said Anita. " Before you know it, I ' m ready. " The morning is spent checking the equipment to guarantee that everything is in running order and cleaning the station house and all the vehicles. Each day is set aside to launder each component in the living quarters, such as the kitchen, bathroom, and the yard. The afternoon is filled with practice drills in which Anita says there are new things to learn all the time. Leisure time follows, giving the workers time to do what they want to. Anita spends her two hours working out with weights and limbering up with stretching exercises. The evening hours are utiliz- ed for study. Anita is also currently working on her major in Physical Education at UNC-G. Anita ' s decision to become a firewoman was nur- tured by her father, who also worked with the fire department. " My father was recruiting back in ' 79. I put in my application. I went through all the steps and got accepted. " she said. All those steps included a Ust of requirements that accounted for three months in training. The pro- gram consisted of a battery of tests, a game where pegs have to be placed in a hole within a specified length of time. It is indicative of how well the sub- ject can manipulate objects. After passing the in- itial stage, an eleven week instruciton period begins, where firefighting tactics and principles are stress- ed. A three week EMT course ends the practical. The outline of the training agenda sounds routine but it really isn ' t. A physical agility test is administered at the train- ing center. Push-ups. sit-ups. chin-ups and leg lifts are not all that ' s required for passing. A fifty yard dash carrying a thirty-one pound Scott air pack is part of the exam, as is holding on to the window- sill on the second floor of the fire tower by the elbows. " That was fun, " says Anita. I would like to do that again. They tie a rope around you so you won ' t fall. " She had to hang there for ten seconds. " It ' s not long, but it seemed long doing it. " Another task evaluates how well the students listen. Seven hoses are disassembled and have to be picked up by piece-by-piece, placed on the fire truck, assembled, and in place within twenty minutes. Anita recalled that it was raining when she did it. She said it was a test of endurance, strength and stamina. Some of the hoses are in six fifty-foot- long sections. But Anita accomplished the task in less than the demanded time. " ftTien the training ordeal was over, Anita passed. During her years of serving in the fire depart- ment. Anita has worked quite a few precincts, enabl- ing her to gain more experience working in the field. In all, Anita has contributed to four stations. " It ' s kind of nice getting switched around from station to station. Get used to one place, then they move ya. Just seems that ' s the way it works. " " I ' m considered a relief driver. " Anita said. Her duties consist of driving an engine pumper which carries 500 gallons of water and a variety of hoses. But Anita fights fires too. She recalls her very first encounter with an inferno. " The first fire I ever went to was in a shed-like thing; down on a dead- end street. Caught the hydrant, turned the water on. That thing was rockin-n-rollin! Fire was com- in ' out everywhere! We watched it burn. We put it out, of course. They said some kids had been drinkin ' and smokin ' . It was one that ' s engraved in my memory. " Nan Lewis Rich Schlentz Goalie It is a special kind of person who is able to achieve success even when the qualities necessary for at- taining it are not innate gifts. Rich Schlentz, a goalie for the L ' NC-G Spartan Soccer team, knows the dedication and persistance required for perfecting a somewhat limited talent. " Physically, I shouldn ' t be a goalkeeper. I have small hands and can ' t jump high. A lot of it is bet- ween the ears. I usually have a headache and a sorethroat from yelling and thinking. Ninety minutes is a long time to put the brain on overload. " Yet Rich, who didn ' t start until his Junior year, has established an impressive career, posting 1 .0 goals against average twelve shutouts. Intense preparation and his sincere Christian at- titudes helped Rich continue placing even when he wasn ' t participating in a lot of action on the field. The first year he totaled about 300 minutes in the goal. Last year he accumulated 1,300 minutes. What kept him going through that inactive period? " I hated the bench. I thought I might as well give up playing. I tried to be positive about it. I tried to learn as much about it as I could. I would use it as motiva- tion in practice. I had to really bust in practice. " A goalkeeper has a lot of responsibilities to fulfill. Not only is he required to keep the opponent from scoring, he also commands his team on the field, guiding the player ' s strategy. His daring stems from courage. He is definitely a breed apart. " I like the challenge. It ' s exciting for me to make a save; to shut a team out, denying them a chance to score. I like to be a denying figure. It ' s unique. No other position is like it. I enjoy where I am. I ' d rather have someone else play field. You take a lot of abuse. You ' ve got to love the abuse. I enjoy the pressure. " Rapid action calls for extremely quick reflexes and acute vision. A goal is usually executed at very high speeds, often occuring in the blink of an eye. " It ' s like slow motion, yet it happens so fast. I can ' t even remember what happened. It ' s instinct. So many things go through my mind about what I should do. " It ' s a very anxious, heart -stopping moment for the one man who at that particular time controls the game, virtually by himself. The outcome rests with him. It can be a tremendous burden, especially if the game is lost. Along with the physical and mental challenges, a goalie also deals with repetitive scoring threats and goals scored. Rich abhors the violation of a goal in his net. " It ' s horrible! I hate it! I hate being scored against. Even if we blow someone out, if I let goals in it can really ruin my day. But I ' m working on that. I try to use that goal in a positive way, " he said. A net is a goalie ' s home, an area that is precious and therefore guarded from attack. Rich is par- ticularly careful of his visitors. " It ' s definitely my home! Anybody who comes into it has to be aware! If you try to come in my box, it ' s like trying to come into my house and steal my furniture, murder my wife and kids. It ' s definitely my place. " The implica- tions speak for themselves. Christian ideals gave Rich a new perspective on his abilities and attitudes toward the game of soc- cer. It began his freshman year in college. Since that time, his faith has motivated and strengthened him, a force that inspired him to continue playing as well as understanding that his college playing days wouldn ' t last forever. " When I became a Christian, Soccer was no longer important. That helped me realize that there were more important things than kicking a ball around. I had my priorities wrong. I was always disappointed when I didn ' t reach my goals in Soccer. " The opportunity to play collegiate Soccer was a dream Rich harbored since he began playing four- teen years ago. His plans for a career revolved around playing professionally. However, he realiz- ed that demands would be too much and the enjoy- men t would be lost when the mtrinsic values became dominated by a paycheck and the need for a con- sistently high performance level. The reason why Rich came to UNC-Greensboro, he jokes, was for money. But he laughingly admits that he didn ' t get any. In truth, he is more than satisfied with his playing experience, the opportuni- ty to meet people, and the chance to travel throughout the nation and overseas. Rich also feels he has matured as a player, gaining a confidence that prepares him for the future. Nan Lewis Emily Adams Dance To desire a career as a performer means to forego a great many things the rest of the world considers necessary and normal. The pressures of perform- ing demand great sacrifice and very few of even the most successful performers manage to balance the schizophrenia of performance with a traditional home life. Emily Adams is an instructor of Ballet and Modern Dance at UNC-G and is a survivor of the struggle between the desire for security and the desire to perform. Emily now has a young son nam- ed Dustin and a husband and a degree of security which she has not known in many years. But this is not to say that, like many female performers, she simply smiled and turned her back on performing to be whisked away in the arms of a gallant young man who rescued her from the insecurity and relative depravity of the world of dance. Emily Adams is committed to her craft and if anything, her committment has grown stronger since she made the trnsition from performer to teacher and choreographer. Emily is originally from Kernersville, N.C., and anyone who lived in Kernersville in the early and middle sixties will tell you that it was not the most enlightening place in the world, especially where the fine arts are concerned. She grew up in the Mora- vian Church which prides itself on its music and musicians. From the beginning, artistic expression was a very spiritual thing to her. She began danc- ing at age six with Barbara Mahon of Greensboro. Through Mahon she met Margaret Craske who had danced for Diagheleo when he came to this coun- try from Russia. Craske helped her technically but also encouraged her spiritual growth in dance. She went to the new North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem for college. NCSA in the mid-60s was like a carnival filled with the most outrageous sorts of people. " It was stimulating, " recalls Emily, " so stimulating it was dangerous. We were all very hyper. " NCSA offered her many friends and good contacts, but as she puts it, " The training had definite pros and cons. I never felt appreciated. " So before finishing her degree she made her first trip to NYC. She danced there for Norman Walker, who gave her leading roles and " helped, but was the worst tyrant. " Emily returned to NCSA but was not allowed to dance there. Because she had work- ed in New York she was not discouraged. Under the tutelage of Ben Harkarvey, artistic director of the Pennsylvania Ballet, she returned to the northeast and worked for the Harkness Ballet. For a short time she considered going to Holland with the Dutch Ballet, the company with which Harkarvey was associated before Penn- sylvania. In Harkarvey, Emily found another teacher whose directions were as spiritually oriented as her own. She began to move away from ballet because of its brutal training regimen and teachers who did not think about dance as she did. Her career was interrupted for a year because of ligament damage in her ankles. Ironically, when she return- ed to dance she was hired by the American Ballet Theatre to dance for ABTII where she soloed for three years. Although she was working, the emotional and spiritual conflicts were even stronger. New York City was not her sort of place. " I had major claustrophobia. I wanted to scream on subways. The city was ugly and the people were very rude. New York City in the early seventies was a human sewer. " Emily ' s next stop was up-state New York and the short-lived Chamber Dance Company. She was soon back in NYC. This time around it was Broadway, and Emily toured with the road show of Oklahoma! starring John Davidson. This sort of dancing was not to her liking at all. To get away from things she went to Radford University to teach, and in teaching she found what she had been searching for. Her performance days were over and to this day she does not regret stop- ping when she did. " I had many glorious moments, but dance is all giving and very little getting back. You never know if you ' re going to make it. " Emily had always wanted a family but performing left no room for that, due to what she terms " professional prejudices " against performers who have or want families. She would change nothing that happened in the years she performed. " I knew, more or less, what I was getting into, but once I was in, there was no way back— I had to carve a way for myself. " Emily Adams has definitely not turned her back on her craft; she has found a better way to approach it. She hopes her perspective will help the dancers she trains. " In teaching you can sometimes make a difference— saying the right thing at the right time, but students have to find out things for themselves. " Mark March An eleven year old girl is staring goggle-eyed at the television screen as Diana Ross plays an influen- tial fashion designer in the film Mahogany. This film portrays a cosmopolitan, glamorous life within the fashion industry. This eleven-year-old girl decides then and there that her life will be devoted to work- ing towards the goal of making it as a professional model. Today, that mentioned little girl is a sophomore at UNC-G. Her name is Kimberlee Phillips, and her aspirations to make a splash in the fashion industry have not lessened at all. " If fate and destiny allow it, and if the door is open, 1 hope that I can make modeling a life-long career, " Kimberlee says, admitting that the pro- spect of becommg " rich and famous " is one of the most appealing aspects o f a modeling career. (Not to mention the men, the excitement, the parties, the fast life...) It would be unfair to say that Kimberlee was in the busmess only for fame and fortune. She claims that being a professional model is very good therapy for her. " You have to overcome a lot of nervousness and misgivings about your ability before you can confidently model pajamas in front of 200 people. Things like that have really increased my confidence in myself. " Kimberlee was once somewhat dubious about her ability to really make it as a model. Then she won second place in the Miss N.C. Teen U.S.A. pageant last March, and began to think that just maybe she had what it takes to be a successfiil model. Since then she has gotten an agent and put together a portfolio, and has begun to do her first professional jobs. Her childhood dream has been fulfilled, and she feels a great sense of achievement. " It feels so good to know that I have really moved towards my professional goals in a very concrete way. How may college students can say that? " Mike Read Kimberlee Phillips Model Sue Canning Art Movement produces illusions of shapes and shadows, feeling and emotion. Sue Canning, an Art History professor at UNC-G. is fascinated with the expression of change captured in motion photograpy. Much of her work contains images and reflections where the fig lres and objects never look the same twice. At each glance, the picture takes on a new configuration. For Ms. Canning, art and photography are a means of satisfying both her creative and rational instincts. " It ' s an absolute necessity for me to do it. It ' s very personal. I ' m a creative person. " Ever since Ms . Canning was a child, she loved to dabble in art. In college, she majored in history and realized that art history would allow her to combine her creative impulses with an intellectual bent. With an Art History degree. Canning found that there was more to do in this area that not only satisfied an interest she harbored but allowed for flexibility in an academic sphere- It was during her graduate studies at California State, that Ms. Canning took up photography through an assignment for print making. Ms. Can- ning used photography to make drawings. It was a professor who prodded her to continue with this new toy. To her it was magic. She said, " When you stick it in the developer, you don ' t know what you ' re going to get. " Through this medium, Ms. Canning is experimen- ting with the transformation of movement. Much of her work deals with speed, spins, leaps, and what she terms " blurred and ghostly images. " She describes the sequence as a three part dimension of motion. The addition of color further adds to the obscurity of the vision so that objects are seen that might not ordinarily be shown in the usual and predictable camera snapshot. The use of a lens and other photographic devices further distort and ex- aggerate the perception. The purpose for this ef- fect is to make the viewer respond empathetically with the vision. Ms. Canning ' s desire to teach is to instruct students on what to look for and appreciate in art. " People don ' t know how to look. They expect quick fixes and instant gratification. They don ' t have the patience for it. " Being a teacher gives Ms. Cann- ing a venue for her creative abilities. " I feel the need to visualize certain ideas. But history allows me to talk about artists understanding what they go through in terms of development and formulating ideas. I can relate to that. Teaching is a complex thing. I couldn ' t explain why I got into art. It was a gift I had to talk about things that abstract. I see myself as a medium through myself. I take my knowledge and what they see and make it come alive for them. I pull it out to make it understandable. " A new dream project for Ms. Canning is currently in the works. She was granted a Fulbright Scholar- ship to compile an exhibition of the works of James Ensor, and Artist of the Belgian avant-garde who was active at the turn of the century. James Ensor was a member of an art movement called The Twenty. Ms. Canning became intrigued with the ar- tist after she learned abuot his individual struggles and his concerns for issues affecting Belgium at the time. Curating the show will require large amounts of time. During the run of the exhibit. May through June, Ms. Canning will reside in Brussels. In order to get the program together, Ms. Canning has been collecting art work throughout Europe. She even managed to discover four or five unknown works. The show will include eighty paintings in all. The most time-consuming effort for Ms. Canning will be organizing the catalogue that details and sum- marizes each piece in the collection. Although Ms. Canning has many professional undertakings in productions she continue to accept more responsibility. " I don ' t want to do one thing, " she contends. She is now in the process of design- ing several shows at the Weatherspoon Art Gallery on photography. She also writes criticism for the Spectator and teaches full time. Not only does she teach, but she writes and has been published. " It ' s hard as hell to write, " she said. She claims that studying art history is quite dif- ferent from being an artist. " In art history you work twice as hard. It ' s ironic I ended up where I did. " Naji Lewis Missy Young Barrel Racer Rounding the barrels and stretching to the finish Hne. Missy Young edged her horse on faster. Within seconds, IVIissy crossed the finish line, beating out her opponent. " I was ecstatic, " she says. " I had waited ten years to win a National title. I just didn ' t believe it was happening. It was my last youth nationals to compete in and I had decided if I was going to win, it would be now. I didn ' t have much of another chance. " " I cried, " she continues. " I was just so determin- ed to win the class, I was a different person. You couldn ' t hold me back. I was on a high; all I could think about was winning. I had won my first, I had won my second. After that, nothing held me back! " And so, when the bout was over. Missy Young ac- complished her dream; she won her first National Barrelracmg championship. Barrelracing is one type of riding in what are known as the game classes. The games are divided into age divisions, and Missy competed in the fourteen-to-eighteen bracket. " The arena is arrang- ed circularly with one set of barrels at each end of the ring. If one rider knocks a barrel over, the other rider wins the heat. The two opposing horses run in opposite directions. A whistle blows. Five seconds elapse and then a second whistle pierces the air. The race is on and it continues until the winner crosses the line in the center of the ring. Missy, like all riders is especially attached to her own mount, Luther Little. " He ' s white. He has a mane and tail. The first time I saw hime, he was in Albequerque, New Me.xico in 1981. and a little six year old girl was running him in the barrels and she won the class. I always dreamed of having a horse like that who was calm and collected and didn ' t jump around like most of the others do. I just never thought that horse would be mine one day. He just catches your eye when you see him. He ' s a crowd pleaser. " That first meeting with Luther Little held another special suprise for Missy. " I won the National Cham- pionship in Albequerque four year later in the same arena. " she said. Some can call it luck, but Missy ' s had to work hard to train her horse and herself to ride him so that they both will work together to the best of their abilities. " He had the abilities, it was just a matter of me learning how to ride him. We won a lot and did well but I didn ' t do as well as I could. This past year, we really got used to each other. We won con- secutively all year long! " Indeed, Missy has been very successful all through her career as a rider. She holds several distinctive honors other than this year ' s National champion- ship. For the past five years, she has reigned undefeated as the N.C. State Appaluso Association High Point Y ' outh in the fourteen-to-eighteen year old division. At the N.C. State Fair, Missy won eight nut nf twelve classes and received a trophy. Family support has provided Missy the encourage- ment and incentive to continue riding. " A lot of sports you see parental pressure, but my parents have been very supportive and they ' ve invested a lot of money. The ultimate goal we ' ve had was hav- ing a good time. If we ' re having a good time and enjoying ourselves, it ' s worth their money. " The events that Missy participates in carry her and her family throughout the country. However, unless it ' s a really big show, the Y ' oungs prefer to com- pete regionally in the Southern states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. Along with the love for riding comes the personal pleasure of setting a goal and reaching it. " I love it and it gives a lot of satisfaction. The satisfaction we get from winning was because we earned it and nobody did it for us. " Missy said. When Missy turns nineteen, her eligibility for the fourteen-to-eighteen class will no longer count. In- stead, she will progress to the nineteen-and-over category. She presently is planning to enter the amateur division which stipulates that a rider can- not receive cash prizes for a win and must provide her own horse. Missy is ready and set but at this point feels a little trepidation at starting over in a unit that consists of some very experienced veterans. " I ' m moving up into a division where there are a lot of professionals. The competition is tougher! There are more people in the class. Y ou have to be tougher and get more out of your horse. " Missy also realizes the road ahead is going to be rocky at first but she also knows that it is better to keep moving forward. " Y ' ou learn you ' re capable of doing it. You can ' t stay at one level all the time. Y ' ou gotta keep moving up! " Nan Lewis Lorenzo Hines Songwriter Lorenzo Hines has the gift of music. As a small child he would watch his father make music for au- diences who always responded in a positive and upbeat way. " I was about nine. I guess most kids want to be like their father. It was more than a phase, it was an obsession. On a scale from one to one hundred, it was eighty-nine to ninety percent of me. It ' s a very big part of my life. It ' s become more intense since age eighteen. That ' s when I started writing. " Beginning on August 13, 1982, Lorenzo was laid up for almost a year as a result of a cut tendon in his hand. He missed his sophomore year in college and, due to his infirmity, started tinkering with a piano. Being cooped up, bored and lonely, he found an escape through music composition. Darryl Hall and John Oates; Holland. Dozier and Holland; Steely Dan; Billy Joel, and Smokey Robin- son were Lorenzo ' s celebrity mentors and informal teachers. " I was exposed to rock music. In the en- vironment I was raised in, I was exposed to that. The black influence I got early in life. That ' s always been there but I ' ve discovered a new venue. " When Lorenzo composes, he has to have a clear mind and no pressures. " I ' ll go a couple of days- bam. Oh man, bang, bang, bang! All kinds of ideas come from nowhere. It ' s an iffy sort of situation. It ' s not an assembly line sort of thing; ' Yeah I ' m going to sit down and write a song today. ' You don ' t find a song, it finds you. The year I was off, I turn- ed out quite a few songs. I had nothing to think about except life itself. " All in all, Lorenzo produced about fifty songs, most from personal experiences. " I think about tell- ing stories or talking to someone who ' s having a problem like " Walking on Empty " , which has a moral saying: treat your friends right or you ' ll be alone. " Another song Lorenzo wrote is " Living, " which he describes as being very rock-oriented and loud, depicting his growth from a boy to a man. He also writes about situations and experiences he dislikes. " Tough Boys " is such a song he wrote after overhearing tough talk from a bunch of " macho assholes. " Basically, Lorenzo ' s songs are alike in that they deal with loneliness and lost loves. " I pret- ty much deal with today. I guess I have average tendencies in me. Pain is the best topic; we can all relate to pain. One of the first songs I wrote was about sitting at home on Saturday night alone writing love songs. " Presently, Lorenzo is acquiring addresses to managers of popular bands such as Don Henley, Chicago, and Hall and Oates, all of which he con- siders to be very good writers. He said, " You have to be aggressive, you have to go after these guys. If there ' s no response I ' II make a few long distanc e phone calls. I have numbers, too. " By next year Lorenzo anticipates he ' ll have established contact. " Hopefully, I ' ll be on the brink of something. It ' s a trip to get into. That ' s the hard part. Life ' s not easy! " I ' ll put my music against any one of these guys on radio today. I ' m serious about that. You ' ll never find a modest performer today. You have to have confidence in yourself to get up in front of people and do what you do. You have to believe in yourself. I ' ve always wanted to be a performer. It was a craft I wanted to learn. I ' m still learning. Simply, it ' s what I do best. There will always be a need for me to express myself: sometimes rather embarrassingly. " Lorenzo is proud of his musical versatility. He feels that really good songwriters are capable of dabbling with any type of style. He says his own mode ranges from classical to country to rock. " I ' ll fool you, " he says. " That ' s what I like. As soon as you think you got me figured out, I ' U fool you. That ' s my philosophy on life, too. " Right now, Lorenzo is cleaning up and polishing his material for release. He has contacted several radio stations and is expectantly waiting to hear them being debuted on the air. Of the impending strug- gle to be discovered, Lorenzo said, " I think my music is strong enough and continues to get stronger, and if I don ' t make it, I surely will have tried. " " Everything about the industry fascinates me. I haven ' t tried to get in yet. From what I ' ve heard, it ' s not the easiest quest in the world. You ' ve got to get people to believe in you. That ' s where my business classes come in. You ' re selling a product. You have to know how to sell yourself. I ' m half logical, half creative. They work together. I ' ll sell myself as a writer first. I want to be known as a writer more than a personality. Personahties come and go. A writer will stay. " —Nan Lewis John Sterling Arnold Theatre John Sterling Arnold is a bit of an anomaly in the world of acting. In a profession filled with off-beat, outspoken, rebellious sorts of people. John Arnold is more off-beat and definitely more out-spoken. He is the rebel ' s rebel, the " rugged individualist " so many American authors, from Emerson to Ken Kesey. have made famous. This image is not con- trived, not forced, it simply is the way he is. And if for some unfathomable reason his career in theatre ended tomorrow, or next week, after work- ing steadily for over twenty years, there would pro- bably not be an extreme amount of remorse. If that sort of thing occurred, he might possibly just pack up his two Labrador retrievers, several cases of Molson Golden or Budweiser or whatever he ' s drink- ing this week, and head to Canada to fish for Nor- thern Pike for a while. Obviously, he doesn ' t need the dogs to help catch fish, but after talking to John about his Labs- General Yeager and Tank (how about those names)— it becomes obvious that the dogs are more like children than pets. Well, maybe they are more like his best friends, because the man would not be inclined to taken his kids to his favorite fishing spot. He does in fact have a dog named General Yeager, after Chuck Yeager, the man ' s man, the legendary devil-may-care Air Force pilot who was made so famous in The Right Stuff. More anomaly: how did a man like John Arnold wind up teaching acting at UNC-G? Would Chuck Yeager approve? John was born in Buckhanon, West Virginia and spent the first seven years of his life on farms. His family then moved to Richmond where John became very interested in sports. His father was a high school teacher and John remembers that one of his first strong urges was " the environment of learn- ing and learned people always around the house. It annoyed me. I rebelled totally against teaching. " His first exposure to drama, the " important mo- ment " in his life came in the seventh grade when he was allowed to play Marc Antony in a class play. This drama class was his only exposure to drama until age twenty-three. John spent one boring semester at Davis and Elkins College and dropped out to join the Army. The Army never had so hap- py a soldier. The Army was the major influence on John ' s life and he planned to be a career soldier. He served during some very tense moments in American history: the Cuban Missile Crisis and Berlin Airlift to name two, but he loved the discipline, the esprit de corps, and most of all, the traveling that the Ar- my offered. After four years he left the Army, " to try and remember civilian life for a while " and he never went back in. The Army days are still so much a part of him— from his " U.S. Army " belt buckle to a copy of the New York Times from December 7, 1941. John retuned to college at what is now Virginia Commonwealth. He became a drama major because during the first days of classes, the head of the drama department had time to speak to him while the head of the law school did not. He was always working in school plays primarily because he was older than most of the students and could play older roles. Upon completing undergraduate work, he liv- ed and worked in New York for several years do- ing dinner theatre and working off-Broadway. He took his MFA at Wayne State in Detroit. Before coming to UNC-G, John taught acting at West Virginia University. What John Arnold brings to teaching is a rich, varied background coupled with a great deal of legitimate stage experience on both coasts. He is a highly valuable asset to the Acting Faculty because of his strength and dynamic personality. His spirit is contagious and no doubt will serve him very well as a teacher of young actc-s. MarK Marcti Steve Davis Actor Steve Davis. Steve Devo. The man, the myth. The Once-and-Future Sound Effect. The endless Even- ing at Improv. Hide the children and old people, he ' s here. Well no, let the children out, they ' ll want to see him. Steve Davis is an actor at LTNC-G, and a musi- cian, and a photographer and he is graduating in th e Spring of 1986 with a BFA in acting. He is from Murfreesboro, N.C. and if you ' ve been there, you don ' t have a lot of company. All performers take a long, winding journey to get where they ' re go- ing, so in that sense Steve seems quite normal. But only in that sense. He managed to avoid small-town life a couple of different ways. First he was president of a high school club that traveled all over the southeast. Se- cond, he and his rock band spent as much time as possible in near-by Virginia Beach and Norfold play- ing gigs. He was a member of the " counterculture " of Murfreesboro, and managed to avoid boredom. In high school Steve played in the jazz band for quite some time. But as his teacher explained, " Cats don ' t miss gigs, " and when Steve did, Steve was out of the jazz band. When that happened, Steve did what anyone in his position would do, he went and auditioned for the school production of the musical Oklahoma. ' He had discovered his addiction to being on stage and simply couldn ' t resist. The audition he credits to the woman who headed the drama department. " She is the closest person in the world to me. No one knows me better than she does. " After coming very close to attending UNC-G right out of high school, Steve took a two-year degree in Photography at Chowan College. He transferred to Greensboro in 1983 and has loved every minute since. A lot of the minutes, at any rate. The actor-training at UNC-G fit Steve very well, and he has obviously fit into the program. In the Fall of 1984, his performance as MacHeath in Three- Petiny Opera got him nominated for the Irene Ryan Award, a prestigious, nation-wide scholarship com- petition. He advanced to the regional finals before being eliminated. Currently he is working on his comedy and comic timing, all the while yearning for some dramatic, heavier sorts of roles. The future for Steve Davis holds more photography, music, and drama. Steve sees himself " either on one side of the camera or the other. Ac- tors need photographers, photographers need ac- tors. " He is also a drummer and would like nothing more than to be a " rich and famous musician. " Even though his father still wants him to be a photographer. Mark March Gary Pitt Basketball Player " The refrigerator, " he isn ' t. A legitimate 6 ' 5 " , stomping through life in size IIV2 shoes, Gary Pitt is more likely to be compared to the Empire State Building. It seems Gary ' s been blessed with height since he was young. By now, he has learned how not to suf- fer from acrophobia. In fact, he enjoys the higher altitude. " You get to look down on everybody and you get the feeling that everyone looks up to you. I ' ve been tall all my life; even in kindergarden. I just started out tall and gradually kept getting taller. It ' s not that hard. You can still talk to women unless you ' re eight feet (tall). " Gary ' s unusual growth pattern and inordinate elevation made him a prime candidate for the game of basketball. It was due to the encouragement ol his brothers that he began playing. He ' s been hon- ing his skills ever since. Gary says his primary support comes from his family and fourteen brothers and sisters who live in Bel Air Maryland and manage to attend as many of his games as possible. He adds that he has his mother to thank for prodding him into staying in school when he reached the point of giving up and leaving. And it seems to have paid off. Gary plans to graduate at the end of Spring semester of ' 86. " I ' m getting ready for an occupational career, " he explains. " ! figure after this year my basketball career is over, so I ' ll be looking for a good job in the computer field to make money. " Before leaving UNC-G, however. Gary hopes the basketball team will be the conference tournament champions. " I fee! I should at score at least twelve points a game and average ten rebounds. We ' re im- pro ' ing and by conference time we should be ready to go. " The basketball team offered Gary a family setting which stressed interpersonal relationships and togetherness, which are things he grew up with. Budgeting his time is crucial but not only does Gary manage to juggle classes, play ball, and visit Hooligan ' s once in a while ■ he also works in the library bindery putting books together. Basketball provides him an extracurricular outlet for the pressures of academics and a chance to play the game he likes best. " Besides, " he says. " It ' s fun. " Nan Lewis Aubrey Garlington Music If you ask any music major who ' s been around his or her department long enough just who the most feared and detested music professor is, you ' re liltely to hear the name " Aubrey Garlington. " Dr. Garl- ington ' s reputation is legendary among the graduate and undergraduate music students who have somehow managed to survive a Music History course under his critical eye. For this reason, we at Pine Needles have decided to profile this enigmatic and somewhat controversial man, if on- ly to find out his opinion of his own reputation. Dr. Aubrey S. Garlington, Jr. received his Bachelor of Music decree in Piano Pedagogy with minors in Applied Voice and English Literature from Baylor University in 1952. In 1956, he was awarded a Master of Arts degree from the Univer- sity of Chicago in Music History and in 1965 he received his Ph.D. in Musicology from the Univer- sity of Illinois. From 1961 to 1977 he held three posi- tions at Syracuse University, first as an Instructor, then as an Assistant Professor, and finally as an Associate Professor. In 1977 he joined the Music faculty here at UNC-G as a full professor of music history. Dr. Garlington has been published in many prestigious music journals, including The Journal of the Avierican Musicologieal Society and Musical Quarterly. His specialties include Romantic Opera and Florentine librettos. Dr. Garlington is well aware of the fact that some students may consider him not only tough and demanding, but unreasonable and possibly even un- fair. This writer was at first a bit leery of raising this possibly delicate subject, but it soon became evi- dent that any such qualms were unfounded, for Dr. Garlington was quite willing to comment upon the reputation he has acquired. " I think I am demanding, but I don ' t think I am unreasonable. Being tough is not the issue here. I have always expected people to be interested in what they are doing and I make no bones about the fact that I am bored when they aren ' t. I think my demanding nature is best understood in two parts: (1) I demand that the student think, and (2) I de- mand that the student do his or her best. I am never satisfied unless both demands are met. And in this way I obviously alienate some students and rarely win friends and influence people! Yet, I think I am ' true ' to this reputation of being a ' demanding pro- fessor. ' Why aren ' t we all ' demanding? ' " I suppose the only issue here is the responsibili- ty I have to make a judgement upon the ' best ' ef- forts of my students, but is that not the professor ' s charge? We all make mistakes, of course, but in the long run, our demands will cause those who wish to learn to at least face up to the challenges. " —Steve WilliaTns Betty Jean Jones Theatre Her perspective, her ideas, her voice, even her eyes suggest " temps perdu " , times past. Not the distant past, for her youthfulness and exuberance could easily mistake her for an older undergraduate. But there was a time, about fifteen years ago. when a revolutionary consciousness prevailed around this country and institutions that could not stand up under the scrutiny of sharp questionmg and new ideas were either changed r discardt-d Dr. Betty Jean Jonns is a product vi that period, m part, and she still reflects the spirit and the prac- tice of that time. It is important to note that the ' 60s consciousness is only a part of what makes up Betty Jean Jones, because there are other facets to her which exert just as much influence over the course of her life. She was born in Albany, Georgia and if a childhood could ever influence one ' s later thinking, imagine being a black female in the deep South thir- ty years ago— before integration was an accepted fact, before whatever liberation came for Blacks in the late ' 60s, before the Women ' s Movement. In light of that, what Betty Jean has done with her life seems rather miraculous. From Albany she came to Bennett CoUeee in Greensboro where she ma- jored in Journahsm and Theatre. Once out of Ben- nett she worked as senior writer for a national public relations fu " m, a job that gave her the chance to travel all over the country. She missed work in the theatre, however, and came to UNC-G for an MFA in Directing. She wanted to direct profes- sionally, but was " courted " into going for a Ph.D. She took this degree at the University of Wiscon-_ sin at Madison which has the finest program in American Theatre anywhere. " I really didn ' t know roads would lead back to Greensboro, " she said. " I wanted to have access to major theatre center, like New York, and also be able to promote the film aspects of drama. " UNC- G is one of the few schools to offer the MFA degree in Film Studies. Because of the emphasis placed on film here, she returned. " There was some apprehension— but I was accepted as a colleague and a peer. For that I am eternally grateful. I am com- mitted to this place for an extended period. We ' re moving in very positive directions here. " Dr. Jones ' primary task is that of professor in the department of Theatre. She teaches a variety of courses, including Directing, Criticism and Theory, and Modern Theatre Styles. " I feel that my area of emphasis is relating historical, critical, and creative process to the drama. " It is the notion of a process, of beginning with one idea, pursuing it, and finding the related ideas that Dr. Jones em- phasizes in her teaching. She has certainly lived ac- cording to this principle. " My own education reflected a steady growth in numbers— from 500 at Bennett to 5,000 at UNC-G to 40,000 at Wiscon- sin. There were different value systems at each place. I experienced tremendous growth at each place, but my family is where it all began. " A Black family in Georgia in the late fifties had little to count on except one another, and Betty Jean ' s speech, in class and out, is punctuated with tidbits from her family, especially her grandmother. Her family she describes as " very close-knit, but believing in personal ex " pression. We supported each other ' s ideas and desires. We ' ve all done very dif- ferent things with our lives, and my parents are as- tounded and pleased with the results. " Her family instilled in her the value of the individual as well as the strength and unity of the larger whole. These are also ideas she tries to pass on in her teaching. " To be a part of a small thing that comes together to form a large thing. That is America, " she says. She emphasizes that this idea goes beyond na- tionalism, that we must be aware of our position HI the world community. Since leaving Bennett she ha travelled extensively and she sees travel as in- valuable to her teaching because it has afforded her a much broader perspective. For the current generation of students she has rather pointed advice, although this advice is given with a slight smile. " Suddenly, I ' m teaching the next generation. I was the next generation. That ' s very sobering. " This of course refers to the impact the generation of students in the sixties made on the world, as if there might never be another genera- tion after it. " Students today are losing sight of what It means to be human. They want the bottom line education— whatever will get the job. That frightens me. Tunnel vision is extremely frightening. " The student radical of the sixties co-exists with the small-town Black girl from Georgia in this suc- cessful woman of the eighties. Her comments should not go un-heeded for they reflect a great deal of ex- perience and many diverse places. There is value in the lessons of our history, both on a personal level and in the realm of the larger group. This is one idea Betty Jean Jones has learned to live by and one from which we can all benefit. Mark March Mark Thomas Poet Mark Thomas, a talented poet completing his Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing degree at UNCG, is in trouble. Too many landers have turned into mutants and a cluster of swarmers is heading his way. The battle has been valiant, but it ' s almost over. " Not quite high score, " he says with a sigh as he straightens up from the Defender game. In his striped tie, cardigan sweater, and tweed jacket, he looks very out of place in the arcade. Nor does he really blend in with his surroun- dings at Parker Brothers Chicken and Fish, sipping iced tea and discussing his educational career. It ' s been a long one. Mark took nine years getting his B.A. in English from N.C. State. " I dropped out for four years. It was the usual ■J want to experience the real world ' routine. I worked construction, tended bar, painted houses, the works. I was so precious I hate to think about it now. One of the lies I told myself was that I could write more once I was out of school. Unfortunately, I wrote almost nothing for those four years. School helps, as I found out when I returned to State, if only because you ' re around pens and paper all the time, items you just don ' t have when you ' re toting steel. " It was after returning to State that he found out he wanted to be a poet. This was largely due to the influence of Lance Jeffers, who taught there, and Gwendolyn Brooks, whom he met when she came to State as a visiting artist. They introduced him to the work of other black poets, an important revelation. " I was struck by their emotionalism, their hones- ty, the real sense they have that poetry mat- ters in the real world. " " Lance Jeffers made me feel I was reading poetry for the first time. Before, I could read someone easily accessible like Pope, where everything ' s there on the page, but more obli- que stuff was beyond me. In Jeffers ' class, I saw for the first time that poetry is a different medium from prose, how everything is so much more intense, how every word weighs mure. " After graduating from State, presumably with a long sigh of relief, Mark earned an M.A. in English Literature from William and Mary, where he wrote his thesis on the poetry of Malcolm Lowry. While there, he met Kim Fields. " Kim was the person who had all the right answers— she worked for the depart- mental office, and always knew when courses met, when paychecks were issued, all that. " She must have known the right answer to a more personal question, too. for they were married in 1984. Now, Mark ' s finishing his M.F.A. here and looking ahead. Pressed about the role of the Poet in society, he looks embarassed. " Now how can I answer that without sounding pom- pous? But I do think there is something to be cherished in the idea that poets are out of step with the everyday world. If we don ' t believe that about ourselves, we might stop writing. " —Ian McDowell Fred Chappell Creative Writing " When you teach it means that you have to think about literature all day long and you can ' t ever get away from it— and it makes sure you have to write everyday because you just can ' t put down your pencil and forget about it, " says Fred Chappell, a member of the UNCG MFA Creative Writing Program. Chappell says he works every day with two kinds of students; those who want to be writers and those who are or will be. And r ltt_ ' _ ' there is, according to him, a big dif- ference. " Yeah, people who want to be writers are not serious about it. People who want to write are different— they turn out to be writers. And it ' s easy to distinguish the sheep from the goats in class— not by looking at them, but because the people who want to write turn in writing, and those who just want to be writers, well, they don ' t turn in much. " Of course, the idea of a writing class as a place to teach a person to be a writer is one he scoffs at. " You don ' t even attempt to try to teach a person to write. You can teach a few things about how not to write, and a whole lot about how to read in a helpful man- ner, There are a lot of people who think about writing who haven ' t read very much— but they ' re really not writers at heart. They ' re often really rock stars or movie stars in their secret heart and they ' ve taken up writing because perhaps that ' s an adjunct or some en- trance into the other, more glamourous field. ' ' While he will say that he teaches to support his writing habit, it is clear that Chappell is at heart a teacher dedicated to education in general rather than just the teaching of writing. " I ' d rather teach film classes, 18th century literature, science fiction, freshman comp, or almost anything rather than a writing class— partly because writing classes take up so much time. They really are com- position classes and you ' re reading enormous amounts of composition all the time. But there is also a lot of personal give and take in writing classes that I find, well, a little em- barrassing, a little uncomfortable. I ' m willing to do it— that ' s part of the job, it comes with the territory— but its not an easy thing for a shy person to do. And most writers are shy, sort of hermits at heart. " " When you critique someone else ' s writing you are saying, in effect ' you didn ' t think very well at this point ' or ' you didn ' t express yourself very well at this point ' — and one ' s thoughts and manner of expressions are the most personal things about him. Writers, over time, have to learn to accept criticism and learn from it. If you find a writer who has never recieved a rejection, for example, (and there are writers like that) he ' ll probably get bad reviews that he ' ll have to accept. Or his mother may not like what he writes. Once you commit yourself to paper you ' ve made yourself a target. " An self-professed " Appalachian writer " from his roots in the North Carolina moun- tain town of Canton, Chappell made himself more of a target by choosing to write the Ap- palachian story long before it came back into vogue in the seventies. When asked about whether the popularity of such mountain books as Foxfire has changed the way people recieve his stories, Chappell answers " Yes, in a way it has. And that ' s strange. I wrote for years without people realizing I was an Ap- palachian writer. I suppose they didn ' t think very much about Appalachian writers. And after a few years, when the Appalachian writer did enjoy some sort of vogue, people seemed to forget or not to know that I was still writing about that material. " He laughs. ■ " It doesn ' t bother me, I mean, that ' s not a I complaint. Its just that I kind of got lost because I didn ' t come along at the right mo- ment. That happens to a great many writers all the time. " But the greater popularity of the Ap- palachian story doesn ' t always change the willingness of people to accept or understand the dtories. " For some, yes, for most people no. For most readers it doesn ' t really matter where a story or poem is set. They ' re in- terested in the narrative itself, the characterizations and so forth. There are cer- tain readers and editors and critics to whom setting is very important. They dislike anything that can be tagged as regional right off the bat. There are others to whom that ' s I very important and they will approve of I something simply because its reg ional. Then you hope for those intelligent readers in there who will take the region as part of the sub- ject matter but don ' t let it influence their judgement about the worth of the work. " Chappell is seemingly even more reluctant to talk about the work he does instructing poets in the MFA program. " In some respects its easier to teach poetry than fiction because its easier to teach the mechanics. Its easier ■ to teach meter, what stanza forms are, the I whole technical side of poetry. I could teach that forever because its an endless discipline and its endlessly fascinating to me. What makes it more difficult to teach than fiction IS that the lyric poems are often quite per- sonal, that is, you don ' t have a personna separate from the poet speaking as you always do in fiction. You can find yourself talking directly about someone ' s naked feelings and emotions and that can get a little bit sticky. " The outlook for poets today is the same as its always been, says Chappell. " They share the common human condition— just death at the end of it and whatever you can get in bet- ween. It hasn ' t changed, so far as I can tell, in the four thousand years that we know of I poetry existing. It ' s not quite so popular now I as it was, say, in the 19th century when several poets became very famous. But that was an abberation in the history of poetry. Mostly poets have made their way by going door to door and getting pots flung at them. " Despite this, he will cheerfully admit he would " rather write poetry than anything else. The challenge (in poetry) is always there from word to word and pause to pause, wher as in fiction you have to worry a great deal about things that aren ' t absolutely necessary to the theme you ' ve developed. You have to do lots of housekeeping in fiction— you ' ve got to put clothes on people, empty the ashtrays, raise and lower the window and a lot more detail work to convince people that it ' s a solid world there for the story to take place in. Poetry, with its wonderful genius for compression, gets rid of a lot of that kind of stuff for you. " Poetry brought Chappell what most would consider his greatest literary honor in 1985 when he was awarded the Bollingen prize for poetry by Yale Library. The award brought him into the spotlight, yielding countless in- terviews, calls for readings, and even a televi- sion appearance on the UNC Television net- work with UNC President William Friday. Winning awards, however, is not something Chappell sees as any measure of long term success. " It ch anged things quite tumultuous- ly for about six months with a lot of publici- ty, a lot of correspondence, some requests for material— but then it blows over. Ours is a media society, and unless you ' re on the front page every other day people tend to forget about it, as they should. I ' m not in favor of poetry prizes myself at all. There are reasons one has to accept them— mostly because it would be churlish not to accept. But they are no gauge of the worth of a product itself and they ' re as much a matter of luck as anything else. " Luck not withstanding, Chappell ' s winning of the Bollingen was no fluke, but rather part of a distinguished literary career that has spanned five novels, several volumes of poetry, and numerous works in literary magazines around the world. He won ' t talk about it much, but this isn ' t unexpected, because perhaps he is best described by his own description of a writer as a shy person not interested in fame, but, rather, interested in writing. Mark A. Coram Clarence Vanselow Chemistry Clarence Vanselow of the UNCG Chemistry department pauses to consider his students. He readily admits that not all will do as well as one might hope, that some are less motivated or simply less intelligent than others. Still, he remains philosophical. " It ' s kind of an intangible thing. I ' ve got seventy students in a class right now. Perhaps one-third simply don ' t belong there. Another third might be able to muddle through if they really work at it. But the remaining third always includes seven or eight people who will do really well, whom it ' s a pleasure to teach. They make it worthwhile. " " After all, it ' s the students who make the job. not the salary or the hours. " Not that that ' s the only incentive to con- tinue teaching at UNCG. " This area has a lot going for it. When we interview people for positions we often get our first choices, because they like the school, they like the area, they like the chmate. You don ' t have to tell native North Carolinians about that, of course. " Dr. ' Vanselow is not a native North Caroli- nian. Originally from New York State, he recieved his Ph.D. from Syracuse and taught at Thiel, a small Lutheran college in Penn- sylvania, and then at Colgate, before coming here over twenty years ago. Since then he has seen the transition from the old Women ' s Col- lege to the current co-ed university and has watched three changes in administration. Ask- ed if the university has changed much since that time, he shrugs. " It ' s twice as big, of course. " Unfortunately, that ' s not the only change. " Students are entering the university less well-prepared, less motivated. Some seem uninterested in learning. For too many of them, college may have become an extension of high school. Part of the problem may be that college is too cheap, that it costs so lit- tle, and it is so easy to drop classes. Nothing is really at stake. At any rate, if those students ever become the real majority, we ' re all in real trouble. " Not that he ' s a complete pessimist. " I think we ' ve got a pretty good school here. It really does have a lot of solid aspects. Most of the problems I ' ve mentioned would show up at almost any school you went to. At least peo- ple here are addressing the issue a little more. " Vanselow usually teaches the general science major chemistry course— the first year course aimed at pre-med students, engineers, and the like— and the senior course aimed at Chemistry majors. And he doesn ' t think that chemists or other scientists are the only ones who can benefit from a basic chemistry class. " We have a history going back to the mid- dle ages. It ' s perceived as a hard discipline. of course, but that ' s because there ' s been so little preparation for it compared to what you get for English or History or whatever. It ' s good for a student to know what matter and structure are, even if it just helps them read labels on bottles and paint cans. " When asked for some sort of parting ad- monition. Dr. Vanselow ponders the matter. " I ' ve been in this racket for a long time. I think about this a lot. I often wonder what you can tell a student that he ' ll believe without pontificating. I do talk in the first couple of days of each semester about the importance of not deceiving yourself, about believing you ' re here in school for a reason. Maybe I ' m not inspiring, but I find that their values have pretty much been set by not having had rigorous demands made on them in the past eight years. " " Still, this is a good place. I think you can get a decent education here. It ' s the best deal around, for the price. " Ian McDowell Marian Franklin Education Marian Franklin believes in the future of the counseling program at UNCG. She started the program in 1959 by teaching one course in guidance for school teachers. " My job was to write a Master ' s and Educa- tion Specialist program, " she explained. " Now we ' ve developed to the point where we are accredited. " UNCG ' s counseling program is the only ful- ly accredited program in the state and one of iinly 32 accredited programs in the nation. ■ We meet national standards, " Franklin said proudly. " We have a program that prepares students for three settings: school counseling, community counseling, and higher education. I )ur alumni have been able to get outstandmg jnlis, and they contribute to the state and nation. " Franklin ' s life changed in 1965 when she saw an advertisment in a magazine for a book called Reality Therapy, which was touted as " a new highly controversial book by the world famous psychiatrist William Glasser. " She decided to give the book a try and dropped a check in the mail. " No one in college before 1965 had ever heard of Glasser, " Franklin explained. " He said that anyone who could understand sim- ple, simply communicated processes could counsel others. " After reading Reality Therapy, Franklin knew she ' d found a counseling approach she believed in. She began taking classes from Glasser in 1966 and was one of the first peo- ple to be certified as a Reality Therapist. Not only did she believe in Glasser, Glasser believed in her. He has personally recommend- ed her to teach classes for him in Europe, Canada and the United States. Franklin is one of the busiest people in the School of Education. She teaches a variety of classes, including Helping Relationships, Counseling Theories, Counseling Adolescents, Student Development in Higher Education and Reality Therapy. She is finishing her se- cond term as vice chairperson of the School of Education, and she is a member of 13 School of Education Committees. Working with students is another thing she enjoys, and she is advisor to the graduate students ' organization, the student alumni organization, and Chi Sigma Iota, the honor society for counseling students. Franklin has the highest praise for her fellow-professors. " I am proud of the seven faculty in our department. I have outstanding scholars for collegues. " Her enthusiasm for the program she found- ed bubbles out whenever she talks about it. " Students can come into our program from any major— they don ' t have to be psychology or education majors. And our graduates have strong research backgrounds. We can offer so much. " Dawn Ellen Nubel Mel Shumaker Hugh Hagaman Instructional Resources As students, we get to know our teachers and even a few administrators along the way if we take the time. We ge to know them because they ' re the people here that we meet every day. On the other hand, students on the whole tend to forget there are other people out there whose work, even if not directly noticed, is what allows those same teachers and administrators to do their jobs. Like the chefs back in the kitchen, they ' re the ones who do a lot of the work that doesn ' t get noticed. Dr. Hugh Hagaman and Mel Shumaker of the Instructional Resources Center are two such people. They deal in futures, making plans. And every student here has benefited from their work. They ' re the ones who, each day, have to make sure that films and equipment like pro- jectors, tape recorders, and VCR ' s are delivered to departments all over campus for the day ' s classes. Besides sharing their workspace, Shumaker and Hagaman share an avid interest in cameras. They ' re forever bringing back photographic relics from auctions and even yard sales to the point where their collections fill large portions of their homes and quite a large part of their offices in McNutt Center. " It ' s really a strange sort of hobby— but our interests aren ' t exactly alike, " ex- plains Shumaker. " Yes, " she specializes in miniatures, small cameras, and things like that while I go in for these ... " Hagaman adds, motioning to a wall of large view cameras that look like the photographic apparatus from a Three Stooges film rather than anything from this day and age. " And while this hobby might seem a bit strange, it does have its attraction. When they take the time to put certain of their cameras on display around McNutt, you ' re sure to see students clustered around the showpieces trying to figure out the oddities. In a strange way, everyone is interested in pictures and how they are made. Indeed, if a picture paints a thousand words, the collection of this pair must have been the seed of many libraries. Mark A. Corum Paul Courtright Religious Studies Dr. Paul Courtright keeps strange company. His office is crowded with elephant-headed gods, strange goddesses, bizarre and mythical beasts, all guaranteed to make any student in the Religious Studies department pause in wonder when coming in to ask him about a homework assignment or some point in his lecture. But perhaps strangest of all is the fact that these creatures are a large part of his life ' s work— the study of non-western religions— a field few people understand. " My interest began when I graduated from Cor- nell and was awarded, along with four or five other students, a scholarship to go and teach in India at a college. I taught conversational English, and basically, the reason for the program was to bring some Americans there to give the students a chance to work hands-on with them, so to speak. I travel- ed in almost every state in the country, met people from all sorts of contexts: Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Jains. And since I wasn ' t at that time committed academically to studying India I wasn ' t doing research, so my year there was very unfocused. When I got back to the states I went to Yale Divinity School, but after a year of theological study I decid- ed I wanted to find some way of following up on my interest in India. I seized on the idea of teaching religion in college at about the time a lot of univer- sities were forming religious studies programs- back in ' 65— so there were openings for people with my interest at an unprecedented rate. I didn ' t want to be a missionary or a minister or a theologian, so I went to one of the faculty and he told me if I was serious about it I should go down to the graduate school and study Sanskrit. That was my right of passage. After slogging my way through that I went to Princeton, did my graduate study there, and then back to India for more study. " Courtright ' s recently published book Ganesa: Lord of Obstacles. Lord of Beginnings, has already attracted much notice. But even as it was being published, his research interests had moved on to subjects that Americans might find even stranger. " In the last few years I ' ve been working on another project which I hope, with a research leave, will get finished. That ' s a study of the Hindu goddesses— particularly the goddess Sutee, one of the forms of Parvati, the wife of Shiva. In her incarnation as Sutee she commits a sacrifice in defense of her hus- band in which she immolates herself (throws herself onto a fire). And this has been related to a practice in traditional culture, which in remote areas of In- dia still takes place, and seems to be increasing. Widows will burn themselves aUve on the funeral pyres of their dead husbands. In the early 19th cen- tury the practice was banned in the areas of India under British rule. What I ' ve been working on is taking two tracks. The first involves texts and folk traditions and what they take for granted in the In- dian religious universe, which includes such things as rebirth and karma; and, secondly, trying to reconstruct a case for why this represents an heroic effort. The second track is about how westerners saw this, why they were at first fascinated with it and now find it abhorrent and representitive of everything in India they don ' t like. So coming down on Sutee was a way of flexing their political muscles, so to speak. " " What people fail to understand is that this ritual sacrifice is heroic, exemplary on the part of the woman— in fact, that it was on the same level or strata of heroic sacrifice as the male warrior ' s sacrifice of his life to the community in battle— so much that these sacrifices are celebrated together on the same traditional memorial stones. " As for the rigors of working in a field where so many other researchers are hard at work, Cour- tright thinks there is more than enough to " go around. " " I think there are two kinds of scholar- ship, " he says. " One is trying to show people something that hasn ' t been seen before— being the first in and sort of mapping the territory. That ' s what I did with Ganesa and, to some extent, with Sutee. The other kind of scholarship, and it is equal- ly important, is trying to get right what others have misread. In that kind of scholarship you really have to review all that has been done before, pick your way through all that secondary research like a scholar of Shakespeare, because the texts aren ' t go- ing to change. Its like Biblical studies: its very doubtful there ' s going to be another Dead Sea Scroll discovered. It ' s a matter of figuring out new ways to look at the data we ' ve got. " But working within an field like Religious Studies does have one drawback; it is often misunderstood by those who think it is " teaching religions to students. " Courtright thinks that this is not the case. " We have events to allow not only students to get involved, but to involve anyone who wants to learn. And if that makes people think we ' re pro- selytizing for some Oriental religion, or any religion, I just wish they ' d come and talk about it or just listen for a moment. It ' s sad to watch people write off fascinating things just because they don ' t understand them. " Mark A. Corum Cliff Lowery Dean of Students Cliff Lowery wears many hats. Dean of Students, one of the prime movers of the LINCG University Concert and Lecture Series, lay counselor, arbiter, chaperone for student trips to England, Russia ... his is an interesting and varied resume. But the role he plays day in and day out— the closest link the average student has the the university ' s administration— is one he won ' t admit to. He ' d much rather talk about art and travel, two of his greatest loves. " I ' m very proud of my involvement with the arts at UNCO, " says Lowery. " Especially UCLS. We ' ve had the fortune to be able to bring some of the finest traditional and young artists to UNCG during the existence of the program. I think we ' ve been especially suc- cessful with looking ahead. For example, when we brought Ihtzak Perlman here in 1977 the public was largely unaware of who he was. When he came back in 1983, he was a sellout. " But Lowery ' s involvement with student ac- tivities goes much deeper than bringing artists and lecturers to our schools. Traveling with students is another route he takes— because, he says, students need to be " concerned about international concerns as much as they are about local ones. " Actually taking students to other countries is what Lowery sees as the most important step in giving them a rounded view of the world. " I ' m very concerned about the pro- paganda our government puts out about China and the USSR. " says Lowery. who returned recently from a student trip to the So iet Union. " While I was there I met a number of people who are now close friends and who I both admire and respect. They don ' t have the freedoms we do. but they are very concerned about the state of the Global Community. It is frustrating so see that they think we ' re at fault because of their own propaganda. " " It is imperative that all of us, and especially students, see the interdependence of people. We have to understand the sheer humanity those people represent. They are very good, just as we are, and as frustrated as we are as w-ell. I am convinced there will be a revolu- tion in the USSR soon— one of a religious nature— because they have such an interest in religion and the personal conscience. " I personally favor the idea of exchanging thousands of students w ' ith Russia each year, " says Lowery. " But I am afraid the conser- vative tide of the nation may get in the way. A sense of nationalism can be dangerous— because you must be proud of what you have, but you must learn to co-operate as well. " According to Lowery. this is only one thing our university should be teaching. Others im- portant subjects include trying out roles, get- ting feedback from peers about their actions and learning life-long planning skills " so that when they get to be 3.5 they ' ll be ready to be president or anything else they want to be. " Mark A. Coram Dean Johnson, a senior Biology major. IS a man of many talents. As president of Elliott University (- ' enteK. lie is responsible for keeping the students of UNC-G entertained. " I pro- vide the students with a socially, academically and culturally stimulating environment, " he says, laughing. While in high school in New Jersey, Dean disc -jockeyed for parties and high school proms. At UNC-G he became in- volved in EUC ' s Goodnight Charlie, which provides music for student dances. He also plays several keyboard and per- cussion instruments and enjoys all kinds of music. " One More Night " by Phil Col- lins has been his favorite song for over a year. The Martial Arts are another of Dean ' s interests— he has studied Tae Kwon Do, Shotcikan, Kung I " u. Tang Sudo, Okinawan Kenpo, Kobudo and Goshuru— and he is director of the Stu- dent Escort Service. " I was disturbed during my freshman year when I heard aliout rapes on campus, " he says. " An in- fiirmal escort service was started, and it kept growing. " Aftei- graduation. Dean hopes to teach high school math. " My goal in life is to be happy, " he says. " At UNC-G I ' ve learned how to deal with people in any circumstance. I ' ve learned so much out- side the classroom. It ' s priceless. " —Dawn Ellen NvJbel Dean Johnson EUC President Greg Brown Carolinian Editor " A university newspaper should function as a kind of writing lab, " says Greg Brown, the editor of the Carolinian. " It should be an educa- tional experience, a training ground for people who want to write in order to get some experience anc " get some clippings. " Obviously, some practical problems intrude. " I want to make it as fair as it can be, but you can ' t involve 10,000 students in an eight page weekly newspaper. You can ' t use everybody, and you ' ve got to find a diplomatic way of turning down the ones you don ' t have space for. Still, for right now, my maior problem is recruit- ment. I ' d like to get more people from the journalism and publishing classes in the English department involved. " As of this writing. Brown has only been in office for a week, but he clear- ly has long-term plans. " I ' d like to run more investigative pieces. I ' d like to see how Student Government spends our money, how student activity fees are spent, how the university allocates money to the various depart- ments and divisions, to see if some areas are getting slighted. There ' ll always be room for features, and a school like this demands a lot of arts coverage— but I come from a hard news background and would like to see more of that done, too. It would be great to be able to train people to look and see what ' s going on around them. A campus newspaper should be like a microscope focused on the university. " Brown is not the typical college newspaper editor. Thirty-two years old, he has undergraduate degrees in Journalism and History from Chapel Hill and is working on his Master of Fine Arts Degree in the Broad- cast Cinema division of the Com- munications Department. A former VISTA volunteer. Brown names photography as his main hobby and readily admits to enjoying the music of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Jethro Tull, and (the early) Neil Young. When asked what else distinguishes him in the way of quirks or habits, he smiles. " I ' m always broke. " The smile broadens when he is ask- ed if he has any words to live by. " Always expect the worst and you ' ll never be disappointed. " Ian McDowell Mark A. Corum Pine Needles Editor Mark A, Corum is blunt about why he came to UNCG from Boone, North Carolina. " It was in-state, it was cheap, and it wasn ' t Ap- palachian, where I ' d been taking afternoon classes while going to high school during the morning. I knew practically nothing about UNCG when I came here. " Although Corum has worked for all three of UNCG ' s student publications, has recent- ly completed the first draft of a novel, and is applying to Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program, it was not the UNCG Enghsh Department that first attracted him. " I wanted to be a movie or television direc- tor, but experiencing the Broadcast Cinema department changed my mind about that. " After flirting with studying physics, he is now almost ready to graduate with a double ma- jor in Enghsh and Communications. Corum worked his way up through the ranks of the Carolinian, becoming production manager, the copy editor, and, for the the 1984 85 academic year. Editor. He also serv- ed as Associate Editor of the Coraddi for two years running. When Dawn Nubel had to seek a medical withdrawal in September of 1985, he became editor of the Pine Needles. He is proudest of his association with Cor- addi. " It ' s the most important medium here. It ' s been the longest lasting and the farthest reaching. I ' ve met people from all over the na- tion who ' ve heard of it. You can ' t say that about the paper or the yearbook. " He is plainly reluctant to talk about his novel, which he is currently redrafting. This writer has seen it, however, and found it more impressive than many MFA theses. He does acknowledge the advice and assistance of Fred Chappell, acclaimed poet and novelist and a member of the writing program. " The first thing he told me was to lose the title, but it got more positive after that. " " Fred Chappell has been a tremendous help. He ' s the only person writing ' Southern Fic- tion ' today who I ' d really like to be able to write like. And that ' s strange because my style is almost the exact opposite of his. He ' s one of the three faculty members here who have really inspired me. The others are Jim Clark and Thomas Tedford. I ' d add Eddie Bowen to that list, but certain imbeciles in the Communications Department got rid of him. " Aside from Chappell, Corum likes to read Clifford Simak, Harlan Ellison ( " his essays more than his fiction " ), and Walker Percy ( " The Moviegoer especially " ). His favorite movies are The Road Warrior, Amadeus, The Terminator, Taxi Driver, and Breaker Morant. His musical tastes are eclectic, rang- ing from top forty to rockabilly, and stopping only at heavy metal. " I like almost anything with a good beat— fifties stuff. Buddy Holly, Vivaldi, Mozart, and Weather Report, especially. " When asked if he has any final comment to make, Corum grins. " Nothing I haven ' t already been quoted on. " Ian McDowell Michael Stewart SG President Michael " Mike " Stewart can cope with the pressures of being president of Student Government. He has a motto: " When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. " Mike has been busy this year rewriting the constitution of Student Government. The new document will change the name of the legislative branch from the " Senate " to the " Student Governing Counsel. " Representitives will be elected from the freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, and graduate classes. Mike sees the Counsel as ideally being in- volved in the policy-making network of the university. Mike is a creative person— so creative, in fact, that he designed his own major. Arts Administration. His studies combine Business Administra- tion with performing arts courses. He ' s also minoring in Political Science. His interests include movies and the theatre (he prefers serious drama) and reading for pleasure. He wants to get involved in community action for the less priveleged. " I really need to give something back to the com- munity, " he says. " Whether it ' s working in a soup kitchen of as a big brother, that ' s what I really want to do. " Mike says he eventually would like to head the National Endowment for the Arts, but he ' ll settle with work- ing for a local arts council after graduation. " I could get a MBA and a big job, " he said. " But I ' m not in it for the profit motive. I want to love what I ' m doing. " For relaxation, Mike enjoys socializ- ing with his fraternity brothers. He ' s vice-president of the UNCG chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon. " I don ' t always get to mixers and happy hour, " he says. " Sometimes I find myself working more on the business end. But I enjoy it— it ' s a group of friends to grow with. " When offered an opportunity to give any final opinions, Mike grins, " ! think everyone should go Democrat! " Dawn Ellen Nubel Ian, Sheila Dariush UMB Representitives Ian McDowell enjoys reading Swamp miiy comics and watching Godzilla movies. Sheila Bowling likes to play jokes on her friends. Dariush Shafagh likes to play jazz on his guitar. These three seemingly different peo- ple all have one thing in common: they were elected the student at-large representatives to the University Media Board. And for the first time in recent memory, all the at-large representatives performed well in their posi- tions, attending all the meetings and carry- ing out their committee responsibilities. Ian has a M.F.A. in Creative Writing and is now busy finishing his M.A. in English. He is already a published and anthologized writer. His stories have appeared in Ares. Fantasy Book, Isaac Asimov ' s Science Fiction Magazine, Asimov Presents: Fantasy, and Coraddi. Ian says he ran for a position on the UMB because " I wanted to raise hell. I think 1 succeeded moderately well. I wanted to do something to improve the media rather than just sit around and bitch. " lan ' s varied interests include fishing ( " which I haven ' t done in a while " ), Mexican fried ice cream, lox, sashimi ( " and other raw things " ), exploitation movies, Shakespeare, Yeats, horror ( " Ramsey Campbell more than Stephen King " ), Speckled South American Tegu lizards and the plays of Tom Stoppard and Peter Shaffer. Sheila Bowling, a junior English major, was the highest vote-getter in the election. " I decided to run because I thoughtl could be ob- jective in making decisions, " she explained. " Media is important— we need to know what ' s going on. " Sheila especially enjoys music and reading. Her tastes in music run from country pop to rock, and she lists Styx, Boston, Starship, Elton John and Alabama as favorites. In reading she leans toward F. Scott Fitzgerald, Robert Browning and Jonathan Swift. " I love to read columns too, " she laughed. " Ellen Goodman and Jerry Bledsoe especially. I ' d like to write a column one day. " Sophomore Political Science major Dariush Shafagh serves as v ice chairperson of the UMB. " Basically, I find media very in- teresting, " Dariush explained. " I wanted to get involved. I enjoy administrative things. " Studying is one of Dariush ' s main interests. " Really! " he exclaimed as his roommate scoff- ed in the background. " I love going to school and academics. " Dariush worked as a staff writer for The Carolinian this year covering Senate and political science lectures. He also speaks two languages in addition to English: German and Farsi (the language of Iran). Daum Elltn Nubel Gary Cerrito UMB Chairperson Even though he ' s only a sophomore, Gary Cerrito has helped the University Media Board reach a long-time goal— the adoption of a new constitution. " As chair of the Media Board I try to facilitate information and work as a liason between student and faculty board members, " Gary says. " I set up agendas and try to keep the board moving in a positive direction. " Gary also enjoys being a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon. " I really like the guys, " he explains. " The organization isn ' t looking for what it can get out of you, but how we can join together and all get something. " For Gary, being in a fraternity involves more than parties. " We try to help others. Last year we had a keg roll to raise money for St. Jude ' s Children ' s Hospital. " Gary, a Finance major, plans to keep working with the UMB and improving student media. " I was a sophomore when I ran for this position, with no real prior experience. At this university students can get involved and make a difference, contrary to popular belief. " —Dawn Ellen Nubel Ellen Bryant, president of the Residence Hall Association, wants one thing understood; students who live on campus here at UNCG don ' t live in dorms. " Dorms are temporary, like a barracks— someplace you sleep, not someplace you live. A residence hall, though, is a place where you live while you ' re at school. That ' s an important difference. " Ellen is very enthusiastic about the Residence Hall Association, and more than willing to explain her organization ' s function. " We have representatives from each of the residence halls. They give us input about criticisms, complaints, and ideas that come from the people who live there. From this information, we can form committees to address certain issues and ideas. We ' ve formed a commit- tee to review designs for the new cafeteria, for instance. We have a com- mittee to help pick out the new furniture for North and South Spencer. These are just a few examples. We also participate in campus activities like the team walk for the March of Dimes and getting a memorial for Dr. Warren Asby. " Ellen is an economics and modern political science major from Wilmington. A sophomore, she enjoys working with people, playing the piano, being with children, and politics. While she has not chosen a definite career, this doesn ' t mean her future plans are vague. " I ' m not going to be a person who sits beside a desk all day. I want to be with people or work with people. Law school or graduate school are possibilities. I don ' t want to stagnate. I want to grow as a person and be challanged. —Ian McDowell Ellen Bryant RHA President Andy Snider enjoys a challenge. As president of the senior class and chairperson of the Class Council, he ' s helped organize events ranging from Spring Fling activities to a senior class beach trip to Senior Day. Andy came to UNCG from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. " I thought about transferring to Chapel Hill after two years, but I liked the pro- gi ' am I was in— so I stayed. " His major is Organizational Com- munications. " I like the people in the department, and I like the blend of studying communications and psychology. " Obviously his studies paid off— he has been offered a posi- tion with People ' s Express after graduation. When Andy isn ' t studying or work- ing with the Class Council he enjoys taking road trips. " Winston-Salem, Boone, and Raleigh are my favorite places to go, " he explains. He also runs, and he likes to eat out " just to get off campus. " Andy can be described as a " peo- ple person. " His long range plans in- clude attending seminary. " I ' ve enjoyed my senior year. I ' ve been faced with a lot more challenge. I ' m seeing things grow and come in- to fruition. I ' m seeing how everything I ' ve learned fits together— and I ' m us- ing it. " Dawn Ellen Nubel Andy Snider Senior Class President Stuart Smith WUAG General Manager Stuart Smith loves to talk about WUAG, 106.1 Stereo FM. When he came to UNCG he had no broadcasting experience. Now he ' s serving his second year as General Manager of the campus radio station. " I just went to the organizational meeting my first semester. I started out in news and production, and even- tually got a job on the executive board as traffic director. The following year I was elected General Manager. " WUAG ' s format is Progressive New Music, which emphasizes newer artists and new releases. " We aren ' t pressured into playing what is popular, " says Stuart. " College sta- tions are instrumental in breaking new artists. Record companies use college stations as a test market. " If you ask Stuart what his other in- terests are besides WUAG, you ' ll most likely be met with a blank stare. " I do a lot of things at the station, " he laughs. R.E.M. amd U2 have been popular on the station this year, according to Stuart. So was ' Tom Petty ' s new album and several local artists such as One Plus Two. A survey this fall showed WUAG ' s format to be quite popular with students. " 379-5450, " says Stuart. " We take requests.

When Antonia is not working or study- ing, she enjoys listening to music (her favorites range from Michael Jackson to Wynton Marsalis) and playing the flute and piano. Her future plans include graduate school at UNCG and breaking into broadcasting, hopefully on a major television station. " People seem to think the Neo-Black Society is just for blacks, " Antonia said. " It is an organization with new black ideas, but it ' s for everyone. Now we just have one white member and two foreign members. We want to convince the students the NBS is for everybody. " —Dawn Ellen Nubel Ed McLester is a busy man.

" I came to school with a prefabricated notion of what fraternities are from the movies, " Chris explains. " It ' s not like that. " His goals this year were promoting Greek unity, educating the campus about the Greek system and increasing membership. Before leaving office he ' d like to use some IFC funds to make an alcohol awareness video to show in local high schools. Chris, a junior public relations major from Miami, joined Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity as a freshman. " There are a lot of leadership skills to be gained; it ' s not like Animal House. " This year IFC went from an inactive, " token " organization to a vital part of Greek life on cmapus. Under Chris ' leadership the group printed a fraterni- ty handbook, planned a structured Rush without alcohol, set up smokers, started a file of franternity clippings and rosters, worked to improve relations between all fraternities on cmapus, and planned Greek Week and fundraisers. Chris describes himself as a " people person. " " I look at life as a set of ex- periences. How many and how good they are constitutes your life span. I ' m for the Greek system because it opens new doors and can only improve your life.

" —Dawn Ellen Nubel Bernetta LaChelle Ghist SG Vice-President Dawn Ellen Nubel Coraddi Editor Dawn Ellen Nubel is from Shallotte, a town on the North Carolina coast that she grudg- ingly admits was named after a high-faluting French onion. After receiving a B.A. in Religious Studies and English from UNCG, she returned here in the summer of ' 85 to pur- sue a M.Ed in Counseling. This is her third year as Editor of Coraddi. the university ' s much-respected magazine of art, literature, and photography. " I didn ' t expect to be doing it again, " she explains. " I started out the year as editor of Pine Needles, but I had to take a medical withdrawal from school. When I came back in January I expected to continue working on the yearbook in some capacity, though not as editor. But when the editorship of Coraddi became vacant and it became clear people weren ' t lining up to apply, I volunteered to do it again. " It is obvious that Nubel is passionately com- mitted to the magazine. " I think it is the most important medium we have here. Now I know that sounds awful, that people will think I ' m just saying that because I ' m editor— but think about it. This school has such a great creative writing program and such an outstanding art department and those students need a forum for their work. And if other students, even in different fields, like to write or draw or take pictures, and if they happen to be good at it, they need an outlet to be published in. It ' s really vital. " " People don ' t always realize just what a great tradition we have here. Cora ddi has published Flannery O ' Connor, James Dickey, Randall Jarrell, and many others. And, for every year up until the mid-sixties, there was a great arts forum held on campus— the Cor- addi Arts Forum. During that time we invited many famous artists, writers, and even musi- cians to speak here. People as disparate as Robert Frost and John Cage came. " Nubel ' s unimpeachable intellectual creden- tials do not make her a snob, however. Her tastes are very catholic. She likes bunny rab- bits, listening to music, going to art galleries, and reading ( " everything except class assignments " ). Her list of favorite things would have to include Sylvia Plath, Prince, Bloom County (she leans more towards Opus than Bill), Wallace Stevens, Hindu Mythology (especially anything to do with Kali, the dark goddess, or Krishna), Sherlock Holmes (the original canon, not blasphemous re- interpretations), T.S. Eliot, Emily Dickinson, Sting, E.L.O., Chaim Potok, Flannery O ' Con- nor, Wang Chung, Milan Kundera, and gothic cathedrals. This last passion once led a friend to buy a stone in her name in the Washington Cathedral for her birthday. Her favorite place in the whole world, however, is the National Gallery of Art. One of her favorite people is her cat Colour, " the world ' s most brilliant fehne. " Ian McDowell SET A few of the opinions, thoughts, and reasons that shape UNC-G. A Disturbing Trend Ian McDowell, Copy Editor Like many graduate students, I have a teaching assistantship. Mine involves teaching Freshman Composition. Recent- ly, I read an essay by one of my students, an essay in which the writer explained his decision to join the Republican party. " Many people have called the Republican party the party of the Big Guy against the Little Guy, " he wrote. " But that ' s okay with me. I plan to be a Big Guy myself someday. Besides, the Democrats lose more ground each year; by the turn of the century it ' s possible we will have a one party system. I don ' t know about you, but I want to be on the winning side. " Such cynical opportunism shocked me. I started attending college in the late Seventies, when the tide of Sixties ac- tivism was still receding, and I saw enough of it before it was gone to realize that many of the cherished myths about the generation just preceding mine have a precarious foundation in reality. So don ' t mistake me for the typical former flower child who continually attacks to- day ' s young people for a presumed lack of idealistic altruism. Normally, I would hate to become such a cliche. Still, the attitude voiced by the writer of that essay seems more prevalent among my students now than it did when I started teaching in 1983, and there ' s no way I can pretend it doesn ' t disturb me. Every reason that young man gave for joining the Republican party could have been used by a Nazi in the waning days of the Weimar Republic. In fact, it is dif- ficult for me to consider him morally superior to the typical Klansman. However twisted, ideals are usually behind a deci- sion to join the Klan, rather than a self- serving desire to be on the winning side. And that ' s what I find disturbing about some of today ' s young conservatives. Philosophically, they seem to have little in common with the great conserative tradition. Indeed, they seem to define their conservatism in terms of a party line, a series of set positions on key issues, rather than any particular moral and ethical stance. And that scares me. Democracy depends upon a certain amount of belief in the common good. That belief, however, must be an organic part of a culture, rather than the creed of a ruling party. If we become a nation of me-firsters, of selfish opportunists adopting a callow set of beliefs because such beliefs are fashionable and make it easier to get ahead, our national character will change radically. I don ' t want to be around when that happens. Women ' s Studies Program Fills a Need that Still Exists Lana Whited and M. Katherine Grimes, English Department It might surprise those of us who think of Women ' s Studies as a new phenomenon to know that courses in the field have been offered at UNCG since our current freshmen were four years old. The program began on an experimen- tal basis in the spring of 1972 with forty- one students in three courses. The original committee, chaired by Jane Mat- thews (History), consisted of five faculty members and four students. The commit- tee for the 1985-86 and 1986-87 academic years is chaired by Jacquelyn White (Psychology) and includes Jodi Bilinkoff, Kenneth Caneva, and John D ' Emilio (History); Mary Ellis Gibson (English); Margaret Hunt (Political Science); William Markam (Sociology); John Scan- Eoni (Child Development Family Rela- tions); Patricia Spakes (Social Work); Rebecca Taylor (Nursing); Mary Wakeman (Religious Studies); Susan Canning and Patricia Wasserboehr (Art); Karma Ibsen-Riley (Communication and Theatre); Judy Jounson (Business Ad- ministration); Marilyn Haring-Hidore (Education); and Kathryn Moore (Jackson Library). Student members are also ap- pointed to the committee. The Women ' s Studies Program cur- rently offers courses in the areas of an- thropology, child development and fami- ly relations, english, history, nursing, physical education, psychology, religion, sociology, political science, and women ' s studies. Besides committee members, the Women ' s Studies faculty includes Rebec- ca Adams (Sociology), Pearl Berlin (Emeritus, Health and Physical Educa- tion), and Robert M. Calhoun (History). The program schedules about six courses a semester. During the most recent semester accounted for by the program ' s self-study, over 200 people were enroll- ed, with an average of over thirty in each course. Psychology courses have been the most popular, and the Department of History has consistently offered the most courses. The College of Arts and Sciences currently recognizes a minor in Women ' s Studies consisting of six courses in the program, with no more than three from one discipline. With permission, a student may substitute a course such as Charles Davis ' ENG 534-Modern Southern Fic- tion by Women. The University has never offered a major in Women ' s Studies. The Women ' s Studies Program also sponsors and co-sponsors extra-curricular ac- tivities such as lectures, films, and a lunch-time series, " Conversation with Women Faculty. " In addition, Jackson Library has an outstanding Women ' s Studies collection. The UNCG Women ' s Studies Program has encountered many difficulties com- mon to such programs. One major pro- blem is governance; the interdisciplinary nature of the field makes its position in the administration nebulous. A fun- damental suggestion made by the Women ' s Studies Committee in a 1985 self-study is that the program be housed under the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs to give it stability and visibility. The administration of the University has quite recently (January 1986) ap- propriated an office, 25 Foust, for the Women ' s Studies Program; Jacquelyn White ' s administrative duties will be con- ducted from this office. A pervasive problem is lack of releas- ed time for Women ' s Studies faculty, par- ticuarly for the committee chair. Some department chairs are reluctant to release faculty from commitments. Thus, the success of any Women ' s Studies pro- gram is usually the result of individual generosity, conviction, and dedication. Students in the field must be willing to make similar investments, as no scholar- ship or financial aid is available. A particularly problematic situation at present is the departure of Judith White, former Director of the Women ' s Resource Center. Her duties had ranged beyond the Center to include many of those of Coordinator of the Program, a position eliminated in the late 1970s because of lack of funding. Student opinion and the Academic Self- Study have indicated a need for a broader curriculum. The most expansion is ex- pected to come from the Department of English; considerable international atten- tion is currently focused on women ' s literature, as evidenced by the 1985 publication of The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women, edited by Sandra Gilbert and Suan Gubar. Much interest has been expressed in a course on Women in the Arts (music, theatre, visual arts, dance). Other possible additions are courses in the departments of Com- munications, Education, Home Economics, Romance Languages, and the Natural Sciences, and in the schools of Health, Physical Education, Recrea- tion and Dance and of Business and Economics. The primary controversy surrounding Women ' s Studies is whether such a pro- gram is as divisive as the society it at- tempts to improve. Critics feel that Women ' s Studies programs can be self- serving and polemical. But supporters would remind us that the traditional tendency to minimize or exclude the con- cerns of women creates an imbalance in scholarship that must be recitified, even if for a while the correction creates its own imbalance, just as affirmative action for a time will seem to create its own inequities. In a perfect world, as the English Department ' s Mary Ellis Gibson says, there would be no need for such a pro- gram. But as long as the need exists, UNCG is particularly suited for Women ' s Studies because of the resolve of its founders to educate women and its con- tinued dedication as a liberal arts institu- tion to humanistic concerns. Success of the Home Economics School Based on Deep Roots Michelle Dosier, School of Home Economics People are surprised when they hear the founder of Home Economics was the first woman to graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Back in the 1800s, MIT graduate Ellen Richards was restricted to addressing social issues rather than science because she was a woman. Resolute and deter- mined, she applied scientific principles to the rugged living conditions of her day. A discipline based on improving quality of life was born and given a name— Home Economics. Today, controversy over the name con- tinues; yet, students still bring the same energy and determinatio n characteristic of Richards to their studies in the UNCG School of Home Economics. The dif- ference in the programs today and in the past is the focus— the students, mostly women, prepare for exciting, dynamic careers outside the home. Why do students from all over North Carolina, the nation, and the world choose the UNCG School of Home Economics as their place of study? What is it that draws them here? Jacqueline Voss, Dean of the School of Home Economics, says the school ' s history has much to do with its reputa- tion. " For the last 25 years, our pro- grams hav2 been involved with ' cutting edge ' issues. There ' s not a social problem anywhere that we don ' t have response to in our academic programs. " The UNCG School of Home Economics was the first program in the nation to receive funding for research to study the effects of daycare on infants. The pro- gram was also first to study daycare as an alternative for handicapped students. Today, the research continues, cover- in current topics like changing sex role attitudes, excercise, nutrition, and physiology, and the effect of television and computers on children. The UNCG School of Home Economics is one of 18 universities in the nation to offer a Ph.D. in every subject matter area of Home Economics. The subject matter areas include Clothing and Textiles, Child Development and Family Relationships, Food-Nutrition Food Service Manage- ment, Interior Design, and Home Economics in Education and Business. The impressive graduate program here also attracts outstanding, nationally recognized faculty to the school. Among them are Dr. Hyman Rodman and Dr. John Scanzoni, both noted for their research cntributions and publishing in Child Development and Family Relations. Dr. Manfred Wentz, new chairperson of the Clothing and Textiles Department, and Dr. Barbara Clawson, an interna- tional leader in Home Economics, are just a few of the others. The blend of prominent professors and current research promises for outstan- ding alumni. UNCG Home Economics alumni hold prestigious positions all over the country in business, academia, and government. Many students are attracted to the school by the reputation of specific pro- grams under the Home Economics um- brella. UNCG is the only school in the state to offer an M.Ed, in Interior Design. The Master ' s program in Dietetics and Nutrition is the largest in the country, boasting a built-in consor- tium. The consortium is a unique intern- ship placement plan with contacts in 25 hospitals and clinics across the state. Ninety-four percent of all dietetics students pass the American Dietetics Association exam which certifies students for professional practice. In 1985, the Department of Child Develp- ment and Family Relations was rated sixth in the nation in a study conducted by the National Council on Family Relations. The achievements listed here are only a few. The combination of outstanding research, faculty, and departmental pro- grams in every subject matter area has made the UNCG School of Home Economics an easy target for respect and national attention. From all indications, it appears the reputation will stick in the future. Dean Voss agrees. " I just think we ' re in on the action everywhere. " A Lack of Activism is Not the Same as Apathy Michael Stewart, Student Government President Apathy. Webster defines it as a noun meaning a lack of interest or concern. It has been the word I have most often heard used to describe our generation. Are we apathetic? Well that depends on the area in question. Take extracurricular activities at this school, for example. During my four years at UNCG I have often heard peo- ple say we need to combat student apathy. The concern has been that we need to get more students involved in school activities, whether it be a meeting of the Student Senate or a dance in Cone Ballroom. As I asserted in my State of the Cam- pus Address last Fall, I don ' t believe that there is much apathy in this area at UNCG. After all, we have over 100 stu- dent clubs and organizations, including an active Student Government that has worked to restructure itself this year in order to more fully participate in the overall framework of university gover- nance. We also have a social programm- ing board, four different student media organizations, and many social, service, and educational clubs. With all of this, we can hardly be called apathetic. It might be nice if we could achieve more involve- ment or enthusiasm from time to time, but clearly the students at UNCG do not wholly lack interest or concern in the area of extracurricular activities. As I see it, it is more a matter of diversified and scat- tered interests, which don ' t happen to center around one major theme or con- cern. If anything, this ought to strengthen our sense of community, because we try to address and meet the needs of many various interests, and not just a few. So where does the conclusion come from that the students of the ' 80s are plagued with apathy? Easily enough, the answer lies in a comparison between the students of today and the students of the ' 60s and ' 70s. It is certainly true that the generation preceding ours seemed more involved, and vocal activism was found on many campuses, but a major difference between then and now is that years ago American students were threatened with going to war; today, we are not. Although much of the activism of the recent past was a product of the self- interest of staying alive, there was an elevated social consciousness that arose then which seems to be less prevalent to- day. A decade or two ago most college students were proud to call themselves progressive, and those who were conser- vative were often embarrassed to admit it. Now the opposite is true, and some are concerned that we may be dangerously close to becoming a Darwinian genera- unambiguous problems in 30 to 60 minutes, and we become conditioned to expect the same out of real life, and have a difficult time dealing with more am- biguous problems over the long haul. One might also suggest that there is less ac- tivism today because we have achieved many of the social and political goals of the past, at least in writing if not com- pletely in actual practice. Personally, I believe that a major part of the problem is that we recognize that " a major difference between then and now is that years ago students were threatened with going to war; today, we are not. " tion with a primary concern not for equality, human rights, or our fellow man, but for materialistic values and our targeted income level ten years from now. Perhaps this is where we seem apathetic, not in the area of extracur- ricular activities, but in the area of sociopolitical activism. It is important not to confuse the two, which may seem ob- vious enough, but all too often these two areas are interchanged in discussions on the subject at hand. Several reasons have been suggested as to why today ' s youth may not be as concerned or responsive to social and political issues as past generations have been. Aside from the lack of a war, which is a significant factor, a lack of respect for and faith in government has also been suggested. For example, we grew up after the deaths of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., who led efforts of social and political change. Instead of witnessing their idealism, we grew up watching government leaders defrocked in various criminal investigations. Or, as has also been suggested, perhaps we equate politicians with negative cam- paigning, slogans, and flashy commer- cials, instead of being honest and upfront about their stands on the issues. Another possible reason might be that we are a television audience who is accustomed to watching T.V. programs where the good guys fight the bad guys and settle major. our world, national, and even local pro- lems include a vast array of issues often older than ouselves, that even if we wanted to understand them, we wouldn ' t know where to start. And day after day the newspapers report so many tragedies that we become coolly indifferent to the problems around us. One need only look at the ongoing problems in the Middle East to know what I mean. And how do we sometimes respond to such problems? Perhaps too often we throw our arms up, resign ourselves to wondering, " What ' s the use? " , and are content to ignore problems and do our best to " look out for number one. " Obviously we do not always take this approach. The college movement against apartheid and investment in South African business operations is testimony that students do take up the placards from time to time. But even apartheid is an easy, risk-free cause that does not re- quire a tough or well-thought-through stand on an ambiguous issue. After all, there is only one morally acceptable stand on aprtheid, and that is to oppose it. But we must be willing to address the tough, ambiguous issues as well; ones that re- quire well-thought-out stands after we educate ourselves on the issues. At the university we are surrounded with in- dividuals and information on nearly every subject, and we ought to avail ourselves of these resources, both while we are enrolled and even after we have left as registered students. Education does not end at graduation, and I believe that the university can and should be utilized more often by society at large in helping it to address its needs and concerns. Also, we need not give up on govern- mental activity because it is confusing or imperfect, but instead, as just stated, take on the civic responsibility of democracy to educate ourselves on issues and work to improve their status. And we need not give up on politics because it has become commercialized, but instead in- stist that our representatives level with us about their stands and not simply espouse clever slogans. And finally, we need not give up on our fellow man because his problems are complex or because administrative efficiency of public relief is imperfect, but strive to im- prove our systems of assistance and be willing to share of ourselves and our resources. Finally, I believe that we musn ' t be willing to so easily give up on the pro- gressive spirit that was prevalent on col- lege campuses just a few years ago. (This doesn ' t mean that I advocate confronta- tions, pickets, and protests, because such channels are often meant to force one- sided change. There are more diplomatic ways to address issues so that all sides can be considered.) We need to ask ourselves if we are really content to go along with the current conservatism, and do things such as address our nation ' s fiscal deficit by cutting domestic pro- grams while building military spending and opposing taxes. Can we so easily overlook the fact that were it not for some domestic programs, such as student financial aid, many of us would not even be in college right now? If we so easily give up, then we will deserve to be called both apathetic and selfish. And we will have to ponder what there is to be proud of, and what would be worth protecting. In fact, America has so much to be proud of, and our nation has worked too long and too hard for us to go backwards now. I believe that our generation has the capacity to care and become more involved in the continual ef- fort to improve our society. We do not lack the necessary energy, as is demonstrated by our activity in other areas of interest. Individually, we may not have the answers to the world ' s pro- blems, and even if we did we might not be able to implement them. But we should do our part, individually, whether we become the leading politicians of tomor- row, or simply search our souls before we vote in an election, or think twice about buying a $20,000 sports car. This is not meant to be as much inspir- ing as it is meant to be challenging, because inspirational highs too easily run out of steam when confronted with the nitty-gritty work and tough decisions and sacrifices involved in not just espousing our values, ethics, and ideals, but in tru- ly living them out. Our challenge is to be concerned about our environment, to take interest in one another ' s welfare, and act upon our convictions. Only then can we claim that we are not apathetic. students Should Accept the Challenge of Understanding Dr. Cliff Lowery, Dean of Students Each of us must find challenges to enrich us if we are to be truly human in the 20th century. Recently our challenges have been found at the University, but upon graduation you must seek new challenges if you are to apply your univer- sity skills to life. Recently I completed my third tour of the Soviet Union and was forcefully reminded through these travels and new friendships that a continuing challenge of our time is to develop mutual concerns for community. Community must come to mean more than these people we see everyday— it must include a world view of community. This new vision ought to be built on mutual concern, not the na- tional fervor that so often blinds us. Such a vision may be the only hope for world peace. But peace alone is not suf- ficient, we must require justice for others, including those we do not know and who may be very different from ourselves. Justice therefore requires a vi- sion of service that demands complete commitment to those we would serve. We must share their feelings of powerlessness and must resist the urge to rush in for a moment of euphoria and then return to our overly comfortable life style. I hope you will accept this challenge. It can guide you in your search for an im- proved quality of life that relies on a mature understanding of justice and peace that represents far more than legal order in the community. Justice is more than obediance to the law. It is a call for action that invites reflection upon our motivations and insights. It is a call to critically evaluate our capacity for being compassionate. As a student at UNC-Greensboro you have hopefully acquired the discipline of a scholar— the vision to know what to do and to know when to do it. Discipline im- proves our own sense of community and with serious contemplation permits us to share new insights. I believe these new- insights become our expression of hope— hope that the future can be better than the past. As you leave the University, I trust that you will find another caring com- munity where you will help to build open- ness and trust and sensitivity to others; continue your spirit of inquiry and seize opportunities to get to know others both at home and abroad. Over the years I have come to cherish close friends and to savor those special friends from my travels to the USSR, People ' s Republic of China, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hungary, Austria, Germany, England, Denmark, and Finland. Norman Cousins, (who visited the cam- pus a few years ago) former editor of Saturday Review and author of Human Options, has invited Americans to res- pond more to the challenge of compassion than that of adventure; and to respond to the challenge of the human spirit rather than scientific intelligence. He has identified a very real concern for our na- tion. Each of us must reflect upon the role we can play in reordering our per- sonal and national priorities. In conclusion, I offer the following toast and challenge to your spirit: May your University ex- perience give you greater insight for success. May your success give you the vision for future challenges. May you have both hap- piness and humility. May you have friends and friendships for warmth and comfort. May you be faithful and courageous to high ideals. May you be filled with love and caring. May your sorrows be great enough to enhance your character. May your challenges in your life and work bring you the joy that many of us have experienced while ser- ving you at UNC- Greensboro. Why People are Ignoring the Real Roots of Censorship Mark A. Corum, Editor In this state, and this year, there ' s pro- bably been no hotter subject for discus- sion or protest than the decline in the right to free speech. The new North Carolina Obscenity Law, statements by politicians cutting at reporters ' rights, and even Ted Turner ' s attempted takeover of CBS all worked to bring free speech to the front pages of newspapers and the lead stories of TV newscasts throughout 1985 and early ' 86. There were columns and articles churned out by the hundreds about the necessity of some censorship, how rights needed to be guaranteed, how dangerous censorship was as well as how necessary it had become. And, yet, for all this talk about censorship of opinions, members of the print and broadcast press alike failed to admit to themselves a simple truth— that they have done as much as a group to threaten free speech as has any outside force. The idea of the media as its own worst enemy on the free speech question is far from new— but it was new this year com- ing from some of the nation ' s most liberal idealists. While conservatives like Jesse Helms have attacked the rights of jour- nalists to report stories for years as be- ing counterproductive, dangerous, or tlatly " un-American, " it is the journalist who seeks to use his first amendment rights as a battering ram rather than a shield that have lessened its effectiveness and reputation at a much swifter pace. Sure, people look up to journalists like those who cracked the Watergate case or who write about other factions in a crook- ed government to help the nation at the risk of their hides. But when your basic National Enquirer type uses his " first amendment rights " to defend his libeling and abuse of innocent people to make a headline, the public as a whole has learn- ed to turn its collective head and murmur " oh, hell, not again! " Indicative of this is a remark a journalist friend of mine made recently. " It ' s gotten to the place that ' taking the first ' (amendment) to protect a source from harrassment or defend publishing something shocking to people makes you as guilty in their eyes as ' tak- ing the fifth ' does when you ' re on the witness stand. " America ' s media has had its day of blind trust— and it had better begin the slow process of winning back people ' s trust with a voice of truth and reason before that voice is simply cut off. The case of the NC Censorship law points this out better than almost any other. When news of the law first became known, it was the media that responded first with attacks that pro-censorship forces easily turned into ammunition in favor of the law in pointing out how the media was working, as it always had, only for its own interests and not for the people it " pretended to serve. " It was only when " people " became involved that legislators began to take notice. Protests, lawsuits, petitions, all became weapons against censorship when the media itself couldn ' t handle the issue. There ' s a reason for all this, and it ' s not the excuse given by so many journalists that " the conservative tide has turned against us. " The reason is a lack of care and a lack of self-discipline within the media. After years of faking shocking stories, letting people read about 10 year old heroin addicts that were figments of a Pulitzer prize-winning imagination, and not working to stop the publication of in- nacurate and damaging stories, people in 1985 continued the trend of turning their backs to the media as a reliable source or setter of trends. As one former newspaper editor put it " we acted like children, so we ' re being treated like children. " The final outcome of this trend is what is most frightening today. Because when a medium writes off the ethical reasons behind its freedom of speech in search of better headlines, they also help write off the rights we all have to free speech. The pro-censorship forces have learned the lesson of the seventies and don ' t go after journalists directly. Now they go after easy targets like pornography as a way of whittling away at our rights because people aren ' t so quick to defend por- nography as they are to defend news ar- ticles or editorials. But once a person has participated in one form of censorship, I have to ask— won ' t it make it a little easier to sit idly by when those same peo- ple go after rights like free speech in newspapers. ..or the classroom. My point is simple— we need the media. The problem is we need media that are trustworthy and honest enough to be of any help in defending our rights. In 1985 and ' 86 the media were to busy defending themselves to be of any real help in fulfill- ing that role. And, if the trends of the day continue, they may not have the chance. hetical " gazine UNC-G ' s ALTERNATIVE NE ontro V e r s y EWSPAPER f The Year In Review " " Fire in Reynolds Page 152 Explosion ' 85 Page 154 Homecoming Page 162 Dorm Life Page 174 WUAG Page 178 Luminaires Page 182 Spartan Soccer Squad Team Wins 3rd National Title Page 186 Orientation; or a first step out of the frying pan Excited, anxiety-ridden, weather-beaten new students came pouring onto LINC-G ' s campus Satur- day. August 17. splashing rain everywhere. Some brought multiple carloads of belongings. Some brought moving vans and truckloads. Some new commuting students brought themselves with the intent of staying for an hour or two. But almost all of them were either laughing, crying, or just plain screaming! One freshman Business major said she was frightened. " When I saw the rain and all my dren- ched belongings. 1 thought this must be a sign from God. I knew He was trying to tell me something. " Orientation Leaders (O.L. ' s) were there to assure the new students, by helping them move in. that the rain was not a sigh of divine displeasure. The O.L. ' s reminded them of the O.L.— student meetings starting at 3:00 that afternoon. At the three o ' clock meetings, the O.L. ' s attempted to give the new students an informative, one-hour crash course on everything one ever wanted to know about UNC-G and more. They were trying to create an informal, friendly atmosphere for their groups. They even mentioned the orientation dance taking place in EUC that night. And what a dance it was! Cohacus energized Cone Ballroom with ubeat top-40 sounds mixed with their own unique style that sent everyone rocking, twisting and smoothly jamming. The band charm- ed the crowd with liits like " Purple Rain " and " Fresh " while UNC-G students m.ingled. After the music stopped at 1:00 a.m., everyone went home in the rain. " I really had a good time at the dance, " said Michele Twaddell. a freshman P.E. major. " Everyone seemed so excited. It made us feel more comfortable with UNC-G. " The rain changed Sunday ' s afternoon orientation program slightly. Instead of taking students on the originally planned Piney Lake excursion, buses carried UNC-G students to Four Seasons Mall and then back to campus. Piney Lake would have to wait until Wednesday. Sunday evening ' s orientation schedule was not drastically changed, however. The evening started off with the Chancellor ' s convocation held inside Aycock Auditorium, followed by the almost tradi- tional O.L. skit that revealed a few UNC-G survival techniques. After the skit, the O.L. ' s led the au- dience to the semi-annual outdoor block party which was held in Cone Ballroom, this year because of (sur- prise!) more rain. But moving the block party in- doors did not make it any less fantastic, not when there were UNC-G students ready to get down! Disc jockey Goodnight Charlie kept everyone mov- ing by playing a variety of music from the funkiest soul to the hardest rock. Cone Ballroom was pack- ed with new students, along with early-arriving up- perclassmen and a few potential future students from Greensboro ' s high schools. The weekend ' s parties were fun, displaying a sam- ple of irNC-G ' s social life, but reality should have been dawning on the new students Monday morn- ing. The orientation program began preparing them for Thursday ' s classes. O.L. ' s were seen giving their groups campus tours at 9;00 a.m. Students went from their tour groups to a mandatory study skills workshop. Students who had not preregistered learned where and how to register to avoid being totally lost in Wednesday ' s registration lines. Monday afternoon, O.L. ' s, with volunteering faculty members, gave their orientation groups a sense of how classes would be Thursday and Fri- day. Monday evening, students hiked out to the log cabin above the golf course to the Games Fair where they played games like soccer, volleyball and even had sack races. Then they headed towards Cone Ballroom to see the movie Footloose. The O.L. ' s met their groups one last time to answer any last-minute questions. Students then met with their faculty advisors and went to select workshops. UNC-G bookstore lines seemed miles long, filled with people rushing to get their books before Thurs- day. The entire misty Tuesday afternoon was spent getting ready for the next three days. But students were able to relax or party— indoors— Tuesday night. That ' s right; it rained that night. Wednesday ' s class registration process ran fair- ly smoothly. Students had most of the day free to enjoy the few remaining hours left before Thurs- day officially started. The Piney Lake excursion had been cancelled because of rain, but the campus was still full of on-going parties and activities. The people who had been active in directing the orientation program were able to breathe a sigh of relief, their task done. They would never really know how successful they had been in welcoming and preparing the new students. Michele Twaddell commented on how she felt dur- ing the transition from orientation to the first week of classes. " When we first got here, everything was easy. It was like one big party. But when classes got here, boy, were we surprised. Those classes hit us hard. " One wonders how many other new students shared Twaddell ' s reaction and how many had the •opposite reaction, and w ' ere prepared. One also wonders how crucial that reaction was to their success. Sheila Bowling The Fire in Reynolds: A Near Tragedy that Became a Big Headache for Residents It was Sunday evening, September 8, at approx- imately 10:50 p.m. Sherri Leonard, a junior Interior Design major, had come from the second floor of Cone Hall to visit Wendy Helms, a junior Medical Technology major, on third floor of Reynolds Hall. They were watching the pilot for ABC ' s new prime- time series. Lady Blue, when the fire alarm sounded. Wendy and Sherri were more annoyed than alarmed when they heard the noise. After all, Reynolds had had several fire alarms go off the previous week. So, after Wendy and Sherri descend- ed the fire escape, they went to the front of Reynolds instead of the back. In order to do so, they crossed over the patio under the building. Wendy explained to Sherri that if there had been a real fire they should not have crossed the patio, because the fire could cause the dorm to fall on them. However, Wendy and Sheri soon found out that there was a real fire. As soon as they reached the front of the building, they saw a few people poin- ting up. As they walked closer, they saw an orange glow four stories above them. When molten glass splattered down from the window towards them, Wendy and Sherri ran. " I was scared to death! " said Wendy Helms. " I had never experienced anything like this before. " WTien the initial shock of the fire died down, Wen- dy and Sherri stood by and watched the flames flicker past Reynolds ' roof. The flames were pur- ple. They were amazed at the speed and intensity of the fire. The people in the crowd around Reynolds were filled with mixed emotions as they observed the police confirm the fire ' s existence and then notify the fire department. " Wendy thought it took the firemen forever to arrive on the scene and extinguish the fire. She was worried about her belongings, " said Sherri Leonard. There were other people who felt the same way, but it took the fire trucks a relatively short time to get there and only about four minutes to extinguish the fire. I went to Cone to get my camera right after they got there, and when I came back, the fire was out. " After the fire department left, Wendy and the other Reynolds residents numbly trailed into the cafeteria, where they were provided with Itza piz- za and hot chocolate. Residence Life officials also distributed blankets to all of them. Wendy went back to Sherri ' s dorm room and camped out. She felt fortunate that she could go to Sherri ' s room when she considered that some of Reynolds residents spent the night in the cafeteria. Later Wendy and Sherri found out the fire was sparked by a candle. Wendy ' s room did not receive any of the $25,000 worth of damage that the fire caused. She was lucky. She got to go back to her room the next day. Others were not so lucky. They did not go back to their rooms to live until two months later. Sheila Bowling Fall Election Enthusiasm Brings Hope to Apathy-ridden Campus 5he-ilaL SHEILA sheila. Sheila Sheila Powhn boulinQ ■the nftwe for UhB represerthVivej September ' s fall elections were a sur- prise to nearly everyone involved. Nor- mally a boring affair with only a few senate seats being contested, the fall elec- tion became a hotbed of contention with the elections of freshman class officers yielding half the action. Freshman class president candidates had their posters up the day campaign- ing began. Michelle Saito, Catherine Con- stantinou, and a pseudonoymous " Fred " blanketed the campus witli flyers featur- ing everything from Garfield to Mr. T promoting the presidential hopefuls. Many student government members were frankly amazed at how " they ' re do- ing more work to be freshman class presi- dent than the student body president had to do last spring. " For the first time in some years, students put up posters to campaign for the University Media Board at large posi- tions. Dariush Shafagh, Sheila Bowling and Ian McDowell won the three board seats while Gary Ceritto cruised to an unopposed victory as UMB chairperson. While the vigor shown in the increas- ed campaign effort boded well for future elections, it alone is not enough, said SG president Mike Stewart. According to Stewart, getting students involved and active in a meaningful way was one of the main reasons behind the new SG constitution. t. o . In many ways, UNC-G ' s Explosion ' 85 shaped up as some sort of bizarre mix of a party and an audition, as participants in many of the university ' s student organizations lined College Avenue with tables, posters people promoting their activities to passuig students. And while a festive mood was created by laughter, pranks, and even a juggling group, there remained a serious side to the event as many of the gr(jups realized they needed those students they were conversing with to become involved with more than just talking. So while balloons passed out by members of Elliott Center Council sail- ed away to catch in the trees overhead and people hammed it up for photographers, some very serious deal- ing was going on. The mastermind of Explosion, Student Affairs ' JoAnna Iwata, organized the event just a year before but found the se- cond Explosion to be " very successful. " She added that " I would have like to see a few more groups represented, but I think the ones we have out here are a good cross section. " Indeed, a quick glance down the rows of tables revealed everything from Greeks to Baptists and Political Science to Science Fiction. Seated behind the Student Government table at the event, UNC-G Senator Denise Wallington took time out from ex- plaining Senate to interested students to say, " I think it ' s a good example of how things should go. ..with people actually getting involved. " As for the students who took the time to browse the tables on the way to and from class, their reactions ranged everywhere from " pretty ridiculous " to " very enlightening " and " I can ' t believe I just saw Charles Davis walk by with a balloon. " Standing at the EUC and Stu- dent Affairs table set up by the EUC steps. Dean of Stutlents Cliff Lowery said he was happy to " see so many students and so many faculty taking the time to stop by, " as he helped hand out buttons Ijromoting the event. In all. the participation in Explosion ' 85 made it a major mark in kicking off the new school year on a positive note. Ac- cording to at least one student " it lets you know that at least some of the people who say there ' s nothing to do here aren ' t real- ly looking. " —Mark Corum IfflB m ' mrw .i ,,T m When your car disappears My car isn ' t there. I ' d just walked halfway from Cot- ten Dorm to the gym parking lot, on- ly to realize I ' d left my keys in my room. So, I ' d trudged back through the late November rain, gritting my teeth in the face of the chill, wet wind. Then, just as I was leaving the dorm, I decided that I really ought to lock my room, so I went charging back up the steps. A little too fast, it turned out, for I slipped and bruised a knee. My room secured, I limped back downstairs and out into the in- hospitable weather. Five minutes later, I find myself searching the parking lot where I thought I ' d left my car. O.K., I ' m getting old and the memory is becoming hazy. I probalby parked beside the library. No, my Starfire isn ' t in any of the " B " spaces there. Only two other possibilities. If I were somebody else, I ' d punch myself in the face, I think as I trudge off to the Mclver parking lot. Nor is my temper improved by what I find; two Starfires, but neither of them is mine. Wonderful. Of course, you imbecile, I think; you parked up in the Aycock overflow lot, and now you ' ve managed to get just about as far away from it as you can get and still be on campus. Fifteen minutes later, I find out I ' m wrong. The lot contains a nice Thunderbird, a Volkswagen, and a battered Ford, but no Starfire. Ouch. It dawns on me that my car has either been stolen or towed. I almost hope it ' s stolen; that way I can just report it to the police and not worry about it for a while. I really didn ' t need to go out to Ki ' oger ' s anyway. When I check the gym lot again, I notice the single state-owned vehicles place. Now that wasn ' t there last semester, was if? How long has it been there ' . ' More importantly, did I park there last night, when it was foggy ' ? I walk up to the space. The restricted parking sign is atop a very tall post. If you were actually parked there, it would be above your line of sight. And I ' d been used to parking there for all of the fotu ' previous years I ' ve been on campus. I ' ll bet I pulled in there last night without thinking. The woman in the campus police of- fice cheerfully tells me that I did, and gives me my ticket, towing invoice, and the address of the tow lot. " They take MasterCard and VISA, " she adds helpfully. So does the Mafia, I feel like saying. —Ian McDowell 1963 - 1986 UNC-G ' s Hyphen Takes a Hike Its the kind of thing we tend not to think about until its gone - something so basic and everyday that it becomes a part of the wallpaper. At UNC-G, we began 1986 with something our university will probably never have again - a piece of our history from 23 years ago when our school became co-educational and drop- ped the " Woman ' s College " moniker it had so long and proudly held. History will record 1986 as the " year we lost our hyphen. " UNC-G was no longer UNC-G - it was now UNCG follow- ing a proclaimation in January. Needless to say, the news made the front page of the Greensboro Daily News even though it was ignored by our own campus newspaper. Only Residence Life ' s Today cm Campus newsletter an- nounced the change to the students, who seemed at first to take it in stride. Then, as one residence life official put it, " the radicals latched onto it. " Im- mediately rumours about " save the hyphen campaigns " began to circulate and people began drafting letters to the Chancellor waxing poetic about the shame of " losing one ' s hyphen at such a young age. " Whether those campaigns or letters will ever get anywhere - or even just get off the ground - is academic. UNCG ' s hyphen was caught in the wave of the future - growth and modernization. Administrators say the reason is con- sistancy, since the official UNCG logo hasn ' t ever contained the hyphen, and be- ing current with trends. Other North Carolina universities, it seems, don ' t use their hyphens anymore. That goes for UNCC, UNCW, and UNCA - and, as of 1986. UNCG. So, with the passing of our old friend the hyphen, we should reflect for a mo- ment on just why it disappeared. Its banishment is, at once, a statement on the minimalism of our day and the lack of importance we place on history. Its loss was not sudden or unheralded, since our own bookstore had been selling UNCG shirt sans hyphen for almost three years. But the student body seemed strangely apathetic on this matter - choosing to wear the newfangled shirts without once thinking they were part of an ongoing conspiracy. We passed them everyday until UNCG became as much a part of the scenery as our old UNC-G. At that point the battle was lost. History will record 1986 as the year we lost our hyphen, this is true. It is only sad that such an event did not carry with it a sudden maturation or change in outlook towards the world on the part of the new L ' NCG. Once all the UNC-G shirts, UNC- G team uniforms, and UNC-G stationery are gone, our hyphen will fade into history - a dim memory from the past to be puzzled over in the future by the same sort of people who wonder who the Mclver statue is " of " and who the Jar- rell Lecture hall is named after. The hyphen will hopefully be remembered as a bridge to our past - a bridge which has now been burned once and for all. Mark A. Corum Registration: The Joys of Standing in Line " In Hell, " says the balding graduate student in front of me, " you have to stand in line. " Maybe so, maybe no, but you cer- tainly do have to do it dm-ing registra- tion. Even if you ' re not actually get- ting registered; I just want to pay a traffic fine in the cashier ' s office, but I have to wait on all the people pay- ing off their tuition. I do notice, though, that the line for deferred payments is very short, almost non- existent, even. Good, I think; when I register tomorrow afternoon and sign my deferrment form, I won ' t have to wait. Wrong. The next day the cashier ' s line doesn ' t extend outside of the room, but the deferred payments line extends out through Mossman and twists back on itself like an arthritic snake. A few not-so-quiet obscenities escape my lips, causing the waiting parents of some hapless new freshman to frown at me. I should be embarassed, but I ' m not. Sod them, I think uncharitably. Registration brings out the worst in people. Lines bring out the worst in some people. " Whenever I ' m in a line like this, " says one fellow waiting near the end, " I begin to sympathize with the maniacs who go up on tall buildings with high-powered rifles. Put me in a room and make me wait behind a lot of people, and I start wanting them all to die. Painfully. " Right. Surrep- titiously, I edge away from him. Two other students, both bespec- tacled, male, and stocky, have a theory. " The Russians are behind all this, " says one with a pronounced Jersey accent. " Think about it. You stand in line for hours in hours. Final- ly, you end up face to face with some petty clerk or bureaucrat, who humiliates you for a few minutes before sending you to stand in another line for another four or five hours. We ' re being indoctrinated. This way, when the Soviets actually take over, we won ' t notice; we ' ll already be used to living under their system. " The scary thing is, I think he ' s right. —Ian McDowell H O M E C O M DANCIN ' IN ■ OCTOBER 23 (WEDNESDAY) 700.900pm " Feats in the Streets " Activities College Ave. All organizations are invited to participate in an evening of fun and frolic on College Avenue.

V Coming up the stairwell, I notice that there ' s a hole in the wall where the third floor extension used to be. Puzzled, I ask the summer R.A. what gives. He sighes ruefully. " Didn ' t you hear, man ' ? They ' re taking out all the phones in the dorm. By the time the fall semester starts there ' ll just be the one at the desk, and it will only have one line. The receptionist won ' t even be allowed to page you unless it ' s an emergency. " I am genuinely dumbfounded. " Why on earth did they do that? " He shrugs. " Maybe the university ' s taking kickbacks from Southern Bell to make us all buy private phones. I don ' t know. It just seems like every semester there ' s one more inconvenience. " Those sentiments were pretty much echoed by all the returning students last Fall. Many were irritated by the inconvenience; even more were angered by the fact that the univer- sity did not tell them about the changeover until they returned, even though some residence hall staff members had evidently known about it since the first summer session. Residence Life ' s side of the story was given prominent coverage in the Carolinian during the first few weeks of school. The reasons for their ac- tions were not unexpected; rising costs of university telephone service, plus the expense of wiring all dorm rooms for private phones, had created the need to save money somewhere, and this option was considered to the least of several possible evils. And so, the upshot of it all is that I have a phone in my room for the first time in four years. It ' s more con- venient, I suppose, than running downstairs for pages or going door to door borrowing quarters for the pay phone. The monthly bills aren ' t all that much, and at least the universi- ty was able to convinc e Southern Bell not to charge the usual exorbitant deposit. If I wasn ' t spending fifteen or twenty dollars a month on a phone, I ' d probably be spending it on alcohol and pizza, and my waistline doesn ' t need that. I haven ' t actually reached out and touched anyone yet, but anything is jMissible. —Ian McDowell Picking A Bone About the Phone Raisin Bran Scores Touchdown In Varsity Sport of the Mind With a 345 to 175 victory over the Pi Kappa Phi team, Raisin Bran, con- sisting of Mark A. Corum, David Pugh, Ian McDowell and Tim Blankenship, became the 1985-86 Col- lege Bowl champions. Wearing red ties as a symbol of solidarity, the team managed to keep their cool in the face of heated com- petition. Unlike the final matches in previous years, the contest was con- ducted in a polite and dignified man- ner. No blows or obscenities were exchanged. Questions in various fields, ranging from Jacobean revenge tragedy to quantum physics, helped Raisin Bran maintain an increasing lead after a tight first half. Captain McDowell and team member Blankenship had both cap- tained winning teams in previous years. It was a first victory for Pugh and Corum, but without their combin- ed knowledge of recent American history, movies, physics and astronomy, Raisin Bran would not have fared so well. The team went through many names, including The Flying But- tresses, Four Characters in Search of Cocaine, and Large Bloody Chunks. Each name had its partisans, and the final choice was arrived at in a spirit of disgusted compromise. After the match. College Bowl coor- dinator and game moderator Bruce Harshbarger presented the winners with offical championship polo shirts. Team member Corum said, " That was truly excellent, I must say. " Dawn Ellen Nubel Ian McDowell Home Sweet Home or Hovel Sweet Hovel Two Views of Dorm Life UNC-G has been called a " suitcase college " and a " commuter school " for as long as people can remember. And, with more than half its students liv- ing off campus and a large number of dorm students going home each weekend or travelling to party havens like Chapel Hill for a good time, those are monikers destined to hang on for a long time to come. Still, our cam- pus does have 22 dorms (though two, North and South Spencer were both closed for part of the year for renova- tions) that house literally thousands of students. For some of those students, their dorm room is a home away from home and for others their only home. Student ' s views on their own dorm life vary almost as widely as concepts of heaven and hell. For Linda, a freshman hoping to major in home economics, her room in one of UNC-G ' s high rise dorms was a Godsend. " I was scared to death coming here, " she says. " But since a lot of the other girls in here are new too we kinda got it all together at the same time. Me and my roommate put up curtains and posters and it (her room) came out even nicer than my room at home. Really, when I went home to my own room I thought of getting back to school to my ' real ' room. " At the other extreme, a sophomore in Guilford Hall (who asked not to be named) had stronger feelings about his dorm. " This place sucks, " he said as he made his way one Saturday morning down a hallway strewn with broken beer bottles and skirted a pool of vomit ju st outside the bathroom door. " People talk about dorms being homey— but I ' d hate to see any home like this. " Between the mess, the often deafening roar of stereo war- fare, and the frequent fire alarms in the wee hours of the morning, he found only one reason to stay in the dorm after living there his first semester— " If I get an apartment they won ' t give me my housing deposit back at Residence Life. " While Residence Directors and Assistants (RD ' s and RA ' s) hoped for Linda ' s experience to be the norm, the actual life in dorms usually fell between these extremes. Few students didn ' t have days when they wanted to kill their roomate, move out and never come back, or hang the idiot who pulled off a false fire alarm that got them and their friends out of a warm bed and into a freezing driz- zle at 2 am. On the other hand, dorm life gave most people at least a few li rT ' v K J B B t i j H fi l H ' m m w ■ ■ J Robinson close friends within a couple of doors down to talk with, watch TV with, or just beg from for change for the washing machine. According to many RA ' s, students in the dorms took the time to come to them with their problems and get help because ther e was someone available right " down the hall. " The amount of counseling being done by RA ' s and RD ' s has even prompted some to think that people with that kind of background should be given those jobs— especially in light of the number of students who expressed as a major complaint that their RA ' s and RD ' s always seemed to be out doing something else when they were needed. On the whole, the view of dorm life held by residents varied not only from person to person, but from dorm to dorm. Guilford and Strong maintain- ed their " hell dorm " status, high rise dorms gained a reputation as sorori- ty havens, and Coit as the " porn palace " after a strip show was held in their basement. The almost patriotic dorm na- tionalism instilled in residents by the RD ' s in some dorms led to outright wars. The Guilford Mary Foust Con- flict that went through stages of threats, theft, toilet papering, and even the hanging of an innocent pic- nic table by guerilla Guilfordites was perhaps the most visible— but the much shrewder battle between graduate dorm Gotten and co-ed Coit was also notable. One Coit resident put in blunt terms - " all they are is a bunch of stuck-up bookworms that spend all their time in their rooms and the library. So we blast our stereos just to wake ' em out of their coma. " The Gotten response was simply to " call up campus security and have them turn in down for us. " This route was taken more than once. The monotony of dorm existance was broken by controversy over the new telephone system, a fire in Reynold ' s Hall, an unprecedented rash of false alarms following it, and Residence Life sending notes to all students saying that they had decid- ed to hike their rent halfway through the fall semester. However, the places remained the same and only the peo- ple provided tiny moments of light. Mark A. Corum STUDY HALL OR TOMB? Charley, a short, acerbic EngUsh Ma- jor who hved in Gotten last year, had the theory that graduate students were just waiting to die. " We ' re different from the undergrads, " he used to say. " They ' re still capable of hope. We know better. " His mordant outlook may be unique, but many of the residents would agree that life in Gotten is different from that in other dorms. It ' s even quieter than last year, " says one small, ruddy-featured guitar major. " Last year, we had Party-boy Pulley and Pughman the Subhuman and the God- father and the other crazy foreigners. Those were some real party animals. Even then, though, it was the quietest dorm I ' ve ever seen. Now that all those guys have graduated or gotten apart- ments, it ' s almost a tomb. " The appropriate place, really, for peo- ple who are just waiting to die, Charley would add if he were present. Actually, there is some life in the place from time to time. That sometimes sur- prises undergraduates. I still remember the happy occassion three years ago, when we discovered some dorm funds re- mained unspent in late April. Some peo- ple suggested we buy a computer ter- minal; Charley circulated a petition sug- gesting we spend the money on a horse and chainsaw (the reason for those two items being paired remained unclear). Eventually, cooler heads prevailed, and we decided to have a pig picking and blowout hot tub party. At that time, the graduate dorm was South Spencer, and the party ended up being held in back of the dorm, not too far from Spartan din- ing hall. As we gorged on steaming pig and lukewarm beer, only to immerse our bloated bodies in the huge tub, we were greeted by envious stares from people entering the dining hall. " Hey, you guys aren ' t supposed to have fun, " someone yelled, " you ' re grad studentsl " Even then, though, the dorm was pret- ty sedate, and it ' s become even more serious-minded each year since, especially after everyone was relocated to Gotten. Which isn ' t always a bad thing. Not too long ago, I was visiting a friend in an undergraudate men ' s dorm. Ratt and AC DC seemed to be having a battle of the bands from opposite ends of the hall. Pizza cartons and gnawed crusts lit- tered the floor. Someone seemed to be managing the difficult trick of screaming and laughing at the same time. It was in- vigorating for the short time I was there, but I could imagine it all getting very old fast. Sometimes tombs aren ' t such bad places. If the place seems quiet, it ' s because a lot of the students have to spend most of their time elsewhere. Most have assistantships; few Master ' s degrees or doctorates are financed by mom and dad. The residents tend to get up early and work most of the day and then, if they don ' t have night classes, and most do, spend the better part of the evening in the library. Also, the students tend to be older. Last summer, the average age was pro- bably thirty-five. During the regular academic year it probably comes down to twenty-seven or twenty -eight, but that ' s still a decade older than the average in some dorms. All of which means that people tend to be responsible and considerate. Good qualities, those; they make up for the sometimes oppressive calm. Sometimes only the fact that you have to trudge down a public hallway to get to the bathroom reminds you you ' re in a dorm. —Ian McDowell Life in Gotten Hall: The Graduate Center a • • 1 1 Day and Night at the Music 106 Indies are burning brightly in dorm rooms across campus.

" I didn ' t know what do expect, " said Todd Green - an eight year-old brought to his first Lovefeast this Christmas season. " But I think its pretty. " As general as Todd ' s impression may have been, it is indeed one of the mainstays of the Lovefeast. Fighting against outside claims that the feast - in its presentation of a Christian message and hymns - violated the spirit of the separation of church and state, administration members asked those giving the " message " at the two nights of ceremonies to look for a more " universal focus " in what they said. As Rev. Ron Moss (of Wesley- Luther House) led the Monday festival and Father Jack Campbell (of the University Catholic Center) the Tuesday event, it became evident that the festival was indeed swinging to the " universal " more than in years past. With song as a major portion of the feast, the contributions of the groups who led in the singing were very im- portant to the success of the enter- prise. The Neo-Black Society Gospel Choir, the UNC-G SjTnphonic Chorus, EUC Council, Inter-Fraternity and Intersority Councils, the Residence Halls Association all deserve special notice for their efforts - as well as Hillel, the campus ' Jewish students ' group, who were what many saw as both an unexpected and important part of the " unity " of the festival. A staple at UNC-G since 1963, the Feast in reality had its basis in the Moravian church, which adopted the Festival stressing the breaking of bread and unity in 1727. Thus, the " Moravian star " figured prominent- ly in the ceremony. It was, however, the lighting of the candles by each participant during the ceremony which was the climax of the solemn occassion. And as those participants wandered out on the campus to return to their dorms, cars, and homes while trying to keep the wind from snuffing out their candles, they foreshadowed the Reading Day Luminaires display that would soon follow. Those candles moved out, tiny lights along the sidewalks, until one by one they disappeared from view. " When I came to the Festival I thought it would be just a social or something - or maybe a church ser- vice, " said one student as she hurried back to the library after the Festival. " But it wasn ' t. It was just a lot of peo- ple getting together to enjoy something beautiful. Sure, I heard people talking about how it was wrong, and how it violated students rights, but I can ' t help but think that something as beautiful as that was couldn ' t have done anything but help. " Mark A. Corum The Luminaires: Our Festival of Lights n § i i • J NNi Mi BP ....v ' iy lie nil « ' Nt%i aSifH - k Nine floors of the library amounts to little more than a hundred-and-fifty feet - but from the roof it might as well be the view from another world. Especially at night. The occasion was the December 10th Luminaires display when various campus groups worked together to literally blanket the campus with small candles placed inside white paper bags. The result, once the lights of the campus were extinguished, was astonishing. Because from the top of the library they are all you can see. The familiar landmarks of the campus are reduced to a connect-the-dots puz- zle of lights with barely visible, almost ghostly figures of people wandering around among them like small creatures caught in a maze. It makes one wonder to see such a sight, even once a year. Even when it is expected, even scheduled, it isn ' t expected. Not when you can ' t hear the bustle of people walking around kicking the bags over - or the horns of the cars tracking slowly through campus carrying parents, local families and other sightseers. There are no drunken songs, no loud boom boxes, no mischevious news reporters trying to turn candles in bags into a live feed for the 11 o ' clock news. On- ly lights stretching out in patterns that are familiar and yet unrecogniz- ed in the light of day. In the midst of the blazing lights of Greensboro, our campus is for one day a year an island of sanity. At least it seems that way from the right perspective. Only an occasional flame from a burning bag that has been ' iK » ' ; »r - Hy i ar :• iv- ?r H ' = I.HI , ,„ «H ; kicked over tells otherwise. On the way down from the roof I see there are lines of people on the 9th floor waiting to press their faces against the glass and look out for a moment before being pushed back out of the way by more eager lookers. They don ' t know what they ' ve missed. On the ground, the same is true. Loud music from the dorms fills the air, people run around like skiers slaloming around the candles until they mis-step, and only an few isolated couples seem to be enjoying the event in the spirit inwhich it was intended. The crowds of dusk are thinning, heading back to dorms and homes to study for the first round of exams the next day, as a sudden mass of faculty and administrators comes out of the alumni house the the recep- tion there to catch the last of the show. Already, the four-hour candles are burning out and holes abound the carefully wrought patterns. At eleven, the lights come back on and the show is reduced to a jungle of sand-filled paper bags strewn over the campus. As students go about their studies in lighted dorms, the same volunteers from Alpha Phi Omega, EUC Council, the Neo-Black Society, and Gamma Sigma Sigma take to the streets and stack the re- mains into piles that can be picked up by the cleaning crews in the morning. So many good things seem to end up that way, it seems. Here and gone before you ' ve noticed. Mark A. Corum i 9 :e i i Victory in St. Louis: Spartans win Championship Saint Louis on Sunday, December 8, 1985 saw the realization of a UNC- G soccer fan ' s dream. Saturday ' s practice had been unpromising, as the players stumbled about on a cold, hard, and slippery field, but the temperature had risen that evening, held all night, and now the sun was burning off the patchy cloud cover. It turned out to be a perfect day for both the fans in the stands and the Spar- tans on the field. By game time, for- ty banner-wielding, hand-clapping, and cheer-shouting Spartan sup- porters were surrounded by approx- imately 2,100 others, all of whom ex- pected a close and tense game. The Spartans gained control of the ball immediately with the first shot on the Washington University goal in under one minute and the first ball netted, by Andrew Mehalko, in less than ten minutes. This early score psyched the Spartans for more and pressured the Bears to be prepared. UNC-G continued to dominate play and Mehalko scored a second goal with 22.29 remaining in the first half. According to the Bears ' coach, Joe Carenza, this was the critical goal. " We were also starting and then they were up by two goals. " Coach Parker had also anticipated this to be a one- goal match, but the Spartans had on- ly begun. Following a tripping violation on the Bears, Mehalko scored a spec- tacular number three off a direct kick from twenty-two yards, over the heads of six Washington University defenders, and beyond goalkeeper John Konsek ' s reach. Willie Lopez scored the final goal of the half with less than two minutes remaining. The Spartans were well on their way to the title and to the pages of the record books. The first half excitement quieted during the second half, as Bears fans sat in awe or in silent meditation and the Spartan fans began to lose their voices. The Spai ' tan players, however, would not quit. Though there had been some arm waving interaction between the Spartan players and their support group during the first half, the second half brought a lot more as the outcome became more and more predictable. The Spartan defense had held the Bears to two shots during the first half and they continued to do so throughout the second half. The Spar- tans proceeded to dominate play against a very discouraged but deter- mined Washington U. squad. Washington U. did not have as bad luck in the first half, but Steve Har- rison did score goal number five on a high arching shot with 12:20 left in the game. The final score, 5—0, gave UNC-G its third Division III national cham- pionship in four years. Mehalko ' s three goals enabled him to secure the record of most points scored in the play-off games and to tie the records for most goals scored in a game, most goals scored in a tournament, and most points in a career. He was nam- ed Most Valuable Offensive Player. Doug Hamilton earned the award for Most Valuable Defensive Player and goalie Rich Schlentz tied the record for lowest number of goals allowed in a tournament and in a career. Yes, December 8, 1985 in St. Louis was a perfect setting for the realiza- tion of dreams. Many records were set, a title was regained and I was able to watch the last UNC-G soccer game of my college career result in a victory. Now that was worth travel- ing 800 miles in a car! —Jennifer Cornell Spartans Bears . . ieM k ' « M S v B ' wp ' r ■R V H9H w i ' ;.M Bt %v 1 rT jp . ' v VH ( - .

BSU offers many programs and ministries through which students can become a part of and serve the campus, community and state. A few of their programs are The New Beginnings Choir which performs for churches and nursing homes. The BSU also sponsors a clown and puppet troupe. Spring and Summer mission programs provide BSU members volunteer work to minister to youth groups and needy organizations. In addition to these services the BSU manitains the " Campus John " , a newsletter which is distributed through the dorm bathrooms around campus. Fellowship is a tradition the BSU is proud to uphold. Family groups, prayer partners, covered dish suppers, movie nights, student-led worships as well as the weekly program on Thursday evenings, give students a time to come together in Christian reverence and service. BSU was established in 1922 through the auspices of College Park Baptist Church under the direction of Mr. C.A. Williams. The BSU program at UNC- G was the first initiated in North Carolina and one of the first in the nation.

The goal of the organization is to provide a support group for in- dividuals who have encountered racial bias and seek to understand why these biases exist and how they can be changed. The group meets monthly in an in- formal setting with individuals knowledgeable in the area of race relations. Over the years. Identity has worked on forming and implementing a black studies program, educating students in the area of race relations, in- volving international students in programming, and providing a forum for individuals encountering racial problems. Although some people believe that discrimination is no longer a current issue, the members of Identity have discovered disc nmi nation, like the Loch Ness Monster, is alive and well but below the surface where it can not be readily observed. University Democrats This was the charter year for the University Democrats of UNC-G. However, the organization ' s origins lie in the campus Young Democrats organization which was founded in 1981. The University Democrats are members of the North CaroUna Young Democrats and the North Carolina Federation of College Democrats. The University Democrats serve as a forum for Democratic leaders and candidates to speak to students, but they also serve a forum for students to speak to and influence the Democratic party. They are a voice for the young people. They discuss issues, debate ideas and pass resolutions, thereby educating and involving their student members in the political process and arena. Finally, they work to see that Democratic candidates are elected to positions of inlfuence where they can put Democratic values into policy. Their meetings and lectures are open to any student who chooses to come and be involved in the issues that impact their lives. Featured at University Democrat meetings and receptions this year were various Democratic of- ficials and candidates. Among these visitors were Congressional Candidate Robin Britt, Former Can- didate for Governor Tom Gilmore, Guilford Party Chair Jim Van Hecke, Guilford County Commis- sioner Dot Kearnes and N.C. Young Voters Coor- dinator Harry Kaplan. " lnjlv£nce the Decisions That Influeyice You! ' " Join the Best Party in Town!

Beyond such commitment, St. Mary ' s House spon- sors many activites during the year, some in con- juction with other religious organizations on cam- pus. These include the Thanksgiving celebration with the Catholic Center, the Christmas trip to Old Salem with Presby House, and the annual Seder with Hillel.

The game of rugby is a rough cross between soccer and football. It is compared to soc- cer in that it is a continuous game and related to football because of the way the players handle the ball and tackle. As a result, the players need a great deal of strength and endurance while risking injury. The purpose of the Rugby Club is to provide an organized team sport and to be tke most socially ac- tive organization on campus. Most of the unex- perienced players are looking for fun when they start, but as they become more involved with the team the sportsmanship becomes important. The Rugby Club is proud to be the North Carolina State Champions this year. Declared champs in the Fall, they also played the same teams in the Spring. The team hosted two tournaments during the 1985-86 season. The first was the season opener sponsored by Ham ' s Resturant. The other was the UNCG invitational sponsored by Michelob. The Spring semester was an eventful one for the Ruggers. The team traveled to the Mardi Gras in New Orleans for fun and to compete in the Loui- siana State University tournament that conisted of 32 teams. The team also toured Florida for Spring Break to play Georgia State, Florida State and others.

He also realized the importance of social interaction and a close community of friends. Thus ne formed the first social fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa. In doing so, he opened the door for the development of leadership skills and an opportunity for personal development. The Greek system at UNCG is on- ly five years young, but a firm foun- dation has been established by the dedication of the present leadership. The male social organizations consist of Sigma Tau Gamma, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Lambda Chi Alpha, Alpha Phi Alpha, Sigma Nu, Kappa Alpha Psi, and Tau Kappa Ep- silon. The female organizations in- clude Alpha Chi Omega, Chi Omega, Phi Mu, Delta Sigma Theta, Alpha Delta Pi, and Alpha Kappa Alpha. The fraternity system seeks to develop well-rounded individuals with a wide varity of interests. This is ex- hibited by the many areas that Greeks contribute to the University com- munity including Student Govern- ment, the Carolinian, EUC Council, Residence Life, Orientation leaders, and Intramural sports. Another contribution Greeks at UNCG make is to their fellowman and the less fortunate. Fundraisers for philanthropy and research include the March of Dimes, Play Units for the Severely Handicapped, Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic Fibrosis, Project Hope, Easter Seals, Ronald McDonald House, Sickle Cell Anemia Fund, and the American Cancer Society. Fraternities are also fun and an ex- citing avenue to meet people and develop communication skills and con- tacts that can help later in life. Join- ing a fraternity is a lifelong member- ship and gives one a permanent link to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The fraternity ex- perience is one that can help one grow as a person, develop character, and provide opportunities for social involvements. —David Nance Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity was founded at Boston College by Warren Albert Cole to promote the ideal of perfect brotherly love and personal, academic, and social development among its members. Since its beginning in 1909. Lambda Chi Alpha has grown to be one of the largest general fraternities with more than 145.000 members nationwide. The Phi Theta Chapter at UNC-G colonized in the Spring of 1981 with a solid group of nine men who desired to establish a system that surpassed the " typical fraternity " stereotype. From there the col- ony grew in number and enthusiasm and went on to receive its charter in the Spring of 1983. Other achievements since then include hosting the 1985 Colonial Conclave (an annual meetmg of all the chapters in the region) and acquiring the chapter ' s first house. Every semester, the Lambda Chi ' s participate in a number of service projects for the campus and community such as the annual " Casino Club Lamb- da " . The fraternity also holds fundraisers and social events. This Fall ' s " Throwdown " for the Muscular Distrophy Association raised over $2,500. President: Vice-President: Secretary: Treasurer: Fraternity Educator: Rush Chairperson: Ritualist: Scholarship Chairperson: Social Chairperson: Alumni Chairperson: Neil Nissim Matt Middlebrook Kent Jordan Lynn Maclntyre David Core Eddie Taylor Mike Johnston Mike Lattanzio Chip Olsen Parker Lynch " We believe in Lambda Chi Alpha, and its tradi- tions, principles and ideals. The crescent is our sym- bol; pure, high, ever growing, and the cross is our guide: denoting service, sacrifice, and even suffer- ing and humiliation before the world, bravely en- dured if need be, in following that ideal. " May we have faith in Lambda Chi Alpha and pas- sion fur its welfare. May we have hope for the future of Lambda Chi Alpha and strength to fight for its teachings. May we have pure hearts that we may approach the ideal of perfect brotherly love. " Delta Sigma Theta Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1913 at Howard University by 22 women who pledg- ed to serious endeavors and community service. The tradition begun by those 22 women has been continued through the years. Delta Sigma Theta is a public service organization dedicated to communi- ty and university service, academic achievement and cultural enrichment. The sorority is involved with the March of Dimes, the Negro College Fund, the Cancer Society, the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, and Adopt-a-Grandparent. A scholarship is also given out each year to a deserving student at UNC- G. Some annual events which Delta Sigma Theta is involved with include the Cnmson and Creme Ball, Founders Day Week, and the raising of scholarship funds. " Intelligence is the Torch.

Pi Kappa Phi Frater- nity enriches the lives of its members by develop- ing leadership skills, encouraging excellence in scholarship, promoting mutual fellowship, and in- stilling the highest ideals of Christian manhood and good citizenship. Every other summer. Pi Kappa Phi conducts a leadership seminar called Pi Kapp Col- lege where members are gjiven extensive seminars involving education, finance, scholarship, alumni relations, public relations, singing, ritualistic work, and recruiting, to name a few. Among the many events hosted by the Pi Kapps are the Fall Christmas Semi-Formal where Brothers gather to celebrate the end of the semester and the beginning of the holidays, and Founders Day held on December 10 m honor of the founding fathers of Pi Kappa Phi. During the Spring Semester, the extravagent Rose Ball, is held as is a celebration on January 17 of the founding of the local Epsilon Iota Chapter. Pi Kappa Phi is proud to have its own unique philanthropy as well. In 1977. project P.U.S.H. (play units for the severly handicapped) was adopted by the Pi Kapps. P.U.S.H. units combine simple motivators and other activities to create learning environments for institutionalized children. Money raised by individual chapters is used to build these units at a cost of approximately $10,000 each.

It is the world ' s oldest college-based sorority found- ed by black women. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is to encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and alleviate problems affecting girls and women, to promote higher education and to be of service to all mankind. The Nu Rho Chapter at UNC-G was established on January 15, 1981. The Chapter pursues its ob- jectives through people-oriented programs such as Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, Project Destiny, Adopt-a-Family, and our annual Tea Rose Ball with proceeds going to various needy organizations and scholarships. The Nu Rho Chapter is also involved in many activities on campus such as the Christmas Luminaires, Lovefeast, voter registration, Family Weekend, and World Hunger Day.

For the enduring purposes of Chi Omega give meaning to life; and life with pur- pose and meaning gives rich satisfaction. Throughout the history of Chi Omega, six great pur- poses have been stressed: Friendship; High stan- dards of personnel; Sincere learning and creditable scholarship; Participation in campus activities; Vocational goals; Social and civic service. Through the purposes, Chi Omega encourages and stimulates the members to develop the following: Appreciation of the things in life that contribute to a finer culture and to the development of qualities that make for a well-balanced, well-adjusted per sonality; Habits of responsibility, orderliness, ac curacy, effeciency; Attitudes of understanding kindness, service, and of steadfastness in suppor ting principles that protect the freedom of the in dividual, and that are essential for mamtaining a free society; Interest in learning and in the kind of things that will create appreciation, fine attitudes, good standards and service in the community.

Georgia. The sorority pro- vides the opportunity for young college women to unite in sisterhood— a lifetime comittment of friend- ship. Members develop communication skills, leader- ship abilities, and time management skills among others. Scholarship is highly emphasized and is a major requirement for membership. The Zeta Psi Chapter, here at UXC-G. provides service throughout the community as well as on campus. On Valentine ' s Day. the Sisters sell Balloon-A-Grams which are delivered by members of ADPi. Proceeds from the annual sale are sent tu the Ronald McDonald House. The sorority also holds an annual Faculty Windshield Wipe where members wash the car windows of faculty and leave a friendly message on the windshield. Other annual events include, during the Fall, the Adelphean Semi- Formal and a Pig Pickin ' at Ring Ranch; in the Spring, the ADPi ' s have their Black Diamond For- mal and Parents ' Day. The members of Alpha Delta Pi feel that their sorority is unique in the fact that all members are individuals yet posses a quality that bonds them in sisterhood. " We live for each other.

The colors of Alpha Chi Omega are scarlet and olive green, while its badge is the lyre and its flower is the red carnation. With a Christmas semi-formal, a Spring formal,, and other mixers, Alpha Chi Omega is a social sorority which is also civic minded. The Sisters have volunteered time for other organizations besides their own altruisms, which include Easter Seals, Cystic Fibrosis, the MacDowell Colony, and the Self- Help Toy Project. During the Fall semester. Alpha Chi Omega holds its well-known " rocksit " for one of its philanthropies while the annual roadblock is held in the Spring to raise funds. The philosophy of Alpha Chi Omega is " To offer lifetime membership, experience in self-governing living, and encouragement to develop to the fullest potential as an educated woman.

Although it is the largest social fraternity in the world, our colony at UNC-G is fairly young, and our numbers are still growing. Because of our relative size, and because we cherish and respect the uniqueness of every individual, each member is allowed to more fully pertioipate in our planning and activities. Tekes are never expected to simply conform within the group, or get lost in the crowd. Different fraternities stand for different things, but TKE simply stands for friendship. We are a group of men who share common goals and ideals, and enjoy living, working, and growing together. Whether it ' s at a mixer with a sorority, a football game with a rival, or a beach trip just for the brothers, Tau Kappa Epsilon offers a unique social opportunity that fosters friendship, broadens out- side interests, promotes cooperative living, and develops perspective. . s the Greek system at UNC-G continues to grow, TKE plans to grow with it, and to contribute as much as we can to the UNC-G social environment.

It was born on the desires and aspirations of seventeen young men who believed that all men are social creatures, and that friendships made during the col- lege years are lasting ones. This March 31st mark- ed the eighth anniversary of UNC-G ' s Delta Delta Chapter. The Brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma strive toward their six basic principles which include Value, Lear- ning, Leadership, Excellence, Benefit, and Integri- ty. It is the purpose of the Sigma Tau Gamma to use these principles in a brotherly bond to acheive the most from a college education both socially and academically. The fraternity has a goal to hold at least one an- nual charitable fundraiser. In 1984, the Delta Delta Chapter was presented with the National Charitable Projects Award from the National Foundation of Sigma Tau Gamma.

UNC-G students spent a good deal of time in area movie theaters. The fact that none of those theaters are particularly close to this campus did not prove to be the obstacle one might have expected. We drove up High Point Road to the Four Seasons Mall, over to Friendly Center to the Terrace, down Aycock to the Janus, and even all the way across town to the Circle Six. Buying popcorn and Milkduds, soft drinks and malted milk balls, even fresh cookies and Italian ice picked our way down sticky aisles and hunkered down in wheezing seats, alone in the crowed dark, dreaming with our eyes open. And what did we dream about? A glorious vin- dication in Vietnam, for one thing; we were just as gung ho for Rambo as everyone else. Oh, some of us sneered and some of us snickered and no few of us just stayed away in disgust, but on the whole the film did almost as well with us as with the general audience. Freshmen even wrote papers for their English 101 classes about how the movie had given us back our national honor, much to the increduli- ty of some of their instructors. We also turned out in droves for Stallone ' s other crowd-pleaser, the inevitahie Rocky fV ' , though here, at least, our sentiments were not quite as political- ly correct; as of this writing, a few " Ivan Drago Fan Club " T-shirts have appeared on campus, proclaim- ing their wearers ' admiration for Rocky ' s tower- ing opponent. Older or more intellectually-inclined students were not left entirely in the cold by the movie in- dustry, fortunately. Plenty and Agues of God pro- vided strong roles for Meryl Streep and Jane Fon- da, respectively, and were much admired, par- ticularly the latter. Students familiar with New York city got a good creepy laugh from the com- ically paranoid After Hours, which one critic called " the lighter side of Tcu:i Driver. " And those with an interest in South American politics and literature were intrigued by Kiss of the Spider Woman, and most applauded the performances of William Hurt and Raul Julia. The big summer movies of ' 85— Back to the Future, Pale Rider, and Mad Max Beyond Thunder- dome, played well into the Fall and after, either at first-run houses or dollar cinemas. UNC-G con- tributed its share to these films ' local audiences. Horror fans got their chills from Fright Night. Day of the Dead, the ambitious Return of the Living Dead, and Nightmare on Elm Street II: Freddy ' s Revenge, which last, judging from the clipped-out newspaper ads festoon ' .ig the walls, proved especially popular in Guilford Dorm. We viewed older movies, too, in Jarrell Lecture Hall and on dorm-party VCRs and elsewhere. A lucky few of us from the Broadcast Cinema depart- ment even participated in the making of a film or two, down in Wilmington. All in all, celluloid dreams proved to be an important part of our inner lives. And so it will probably go for the foreseeable future. —Ian McDowell Rambo Jewel of the Nile The Color Purple A Chorus Line Out of Africa Enemy Mine White Nights Agnes of God Commando The Gods Must Be Crazy Rocky IV Weird Science Real Genius My Science Project Fright Night Young Sherlock Holmes To Live and Die in LA Jagged Edge St. Elmo 8 Fire Maxie Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome Beverly Hills Cop Spies Like Us Pee Wee ' s Big Adventure 101 Dalmations Clue Invasion U.S.A.

But what are UNC-G students reading? Cartoons, for one thing. Bloom County and The Far Side were neck-and-neck, with Doonestmry and Garfield vying for second place. Then there were the books in which the words were in printed type rather than hand-lettered balloons. Under both his own name and the less royal sobri- quet of Richard Bachman. Stephen King reigned supreme. In the unlikely event that a student ' s bookshelves contained any new hardbound fiction at all. they probably contained at least one thick volume with King ' s face displayed on the back cover, grinning like some backwoods New England rube who ' d just taken a boy scout hatchet to his mother-in-law, and now had her pickled away in forty-seven separate mason jars hidden behind the piled Nati07ial Geographies in the attic. And then there were the paperbacks. By the time this year- book comes out, one should be able to walk into every dorm on campus and find at least one or two receptionists whiling away their boredom with a dog-eared copy of Skeleton Crew. The TaXisrinan, Thinner. The Bachman Books or old favorites like The Shttmig and The Stand. If Big Steve (as Joe Bob Briggs and Fred Chappell like to call him) looked smug in his dustjacket photos, it was with good reason. Many other items on the New York Times Best Seller List turned up on students ' shelves and night tables. Garrison Keillor ' s Lake WobegoneDays was one such favorite, as was Jean Auel ' s latest neolithic soap opera. The Mammoth Hunters. However, not everything that sold well to the general populace was a hit with students. Few here at UNC-G show- ed much interest in James A. Michener ' s latest in- terminal history lesson. Texas, and even Kurt Von- negut ' s most recent exercise in sentimental cynicism, the typically coy Galapagos, was not as popular here as it might have been ten or fifteen years ago. Maybe there ' s hope for us yet.

The Plug-in Drug. The Idiot Box. The Vast Wasteland. The Glass Teat. The names writers use to revile this centry ' s most popular entertain- ment medium are legion. Yet we still watch, even those of us who are allegedly literate, even me and thee. But what do we tune in to here at UNC-G? Most of the same things that people tune in to everywhere else. Oh, there are some differences. Fewer of us have cable, for one thing, and don ' t have the luxury of seeing the same recently popular bigscreen blockbuster uncut and uninterrupted twelve times a week. Hill Street Blues hasn ' t declin- ed quite as much with us as it has nationwide, and while The Cosby Skow may be in our top twenty, we don ' t value it ' s tidy homilies enough to place it in the number-one viewing slot the way the rest of the population has. We adore Miami Vice, though, and when the weather ' s warm a few of us even try to dress like Crockett and Tubbs, though thankful- ly that influence seems to be on the way out. The highly-touted anthologies failed about as bad- ly with us as they did with everyone else. Few UNC- G students even watched Spielberg ' s Arnazing Stones, let alone found it amazing; more regrettaby, not many of us tuned in to the generally superior revival of The Twilight Zone on CBS. (Perhaps our contingent of SF and Fantasy fans were content to stick to Dr. Who.) Hardly a single student watched even one episode of this season ' s most refreshingly original new pro- gram, anthology or otherwise, the delightful George Bunts Comedy Week. Our tastes didn ' t always reflect the nation ' s, but there were parallels. Th Golden Girls, while popular, did not score quite as highly with us as with the over-thirty set, nor did we get particularly work- ed up about Charlton Heston ' s decision to forsake the Republican Party for Dynasty II: The Colby ' s, but we eagerly tuned in Apollonia ' s debut on Falcon- crest. Dallas did not regain its lost ground, but the original Dynasty retained its throne. Like everybody else, we laughed at Larry, Darryl, and Darryl on Newkart. David Letterman did well, of course, and the new Saturday Night Live fared better with us and the rest of the viewing audience than with the critics. And there was always a heartily rowdy audience for football. Walking through the women ' s dorms in the afternoon, or passing the big TV up on the third floor of EUC, one could always catch a glimpse of one ' s favorite soap opera, while in the men ' s dorms G.I. Joe and The Transformers proved popular in that hour or two between the time classes ended and the cafeteria opened for supper. And as always, some people even watched Divorce Court and Wrestling, both fascinating glimpses into the baser side of our cultural subconscious.

SHING UCHES High Point Road: Fast Food Urban Zombies From the air, it looks like the main artery of the city, or perhaps a gian circuit cable plugged straight into a sprawling complex of asphalt rectangles and multicolored fiberglass buildings. On a more ear- thly level, it can be a motorist ' s nightmare, crowd- ed with traffic jams that freeze any kind of progress for what seems like hours. It ' s High Point Road; a dream come true for those who seek it as a destination and a genuine purgatory for those who just wish to drive through it to someplace else. It ' s easy to look at High Point Road and say you hate it. But let ' s face facts; this is one of the few- places in Greensboro where you can eat anything that really can be called fast food. As we creep towards senility we can anticipate the time when we won ' t eat much of the stuff because our insides have been replaced with plastic and aluminum, but right now we can still shovel down bags of burritos, handfuls of hamburgers and platters of pizzas. Ah, the sweet folly of being young. But High Point Road is more than just a series of manufactured food outlets, much more. It ' s Greensboro ' s new post-interstate highway shopp- ing district. Here you can buy manufactured hous- ing, manfactured musical instruments, manufac- tured social atmosphere, manufactured ceiling fans, manul ' actured dates. At night, the sky glows in sur- real oranges and reds, reflected in the glazed retinas of passing motorists who have been transformed in- to urban zombies by this avalanche of garrish commercialism. This is not place for subtlety. After-high school hangouts choked with teenagers add little to the ambiance. Hard guys cruising with the chicks in daddy ' s car can made a simple drive across town a borrowing experience. But when the nmnehies strike and you are sober enough to drive. else du yuu go Datnd Pugh nk » FEB. :« -. Ino raaNHUN Bivc A Look At Campus Issues Apartheid. The new obscenity law. Choos- ing a new Carolinian editor. Passing the new Student Government and Media Board con- stitutions. Martin Luther King ' s birthday. These were just some of the issues that con- cerned segments of the UNCG student population this year. At best, they helped some of us redefine our values, brought us to passionate new committments. At worst, they at least provided some distraction from the eternal problems of standing in line for registration, passing our finals, and trying vainly to find a convenient parking place. The delicate question of what to do about U.S. economic ties to South Africa was brought home by the fact that UNCG itself has investmen ts there, a revelation that made many students acutely uncomfortable. Indeed, South Africa quickly eclipsed Nicaragua as a litmus test of one ' s political allegiance. Stu- dent Government president Mike Stewart became very involved in the issue, sharing his findings and opinions in a Carulmtan commentary. Judging from papers written for English comiiosition classes and letters submitted to The CaruUnian, many students feel that this university should recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. ' s birthday as a holiday, dismissing classes and holding special events in his honor. James Shealey, a sophomore, was one of many students who criticized what he called the university ' s " lackadasical " attitude towards the questiun. The entire letters columns of two successive issues of Tlie Curolinian were fill- I ' d with letters from individuals and organiza- tions expressing similar views. The issue gradually receded, but is sure to come up again next year. North Carolina ' s controversial new obsceni- ty law generated a surprisingly large amount 111 ' c. ' uiipus intti ' St. Much of this can be trac- ed ti. Ur. Thonui Tedford ' s freedom of speech class. Though it was never his intention, Ted- ford was the defax:to inspiration for the for- mation of the Citizens Against Censorship organization on campus, for it was after they heard about the new law from Tedford that students like Roger Harts and Dan Pearson helped get the group off the ground. " Dr. Ted- ford is so inspiring, " explained Melissa Melton, a senior Broadcasting major in- terested in the organization. " He really makes you realize how precious our freedoms are. " Such inspired zeal led the C.A.C. to organization a benefit concert called First Aid in early February, with all profits from the event going to aid the A.C.L.U ' s drive to get the law repealed. Local groups like The Graphic, the Right Profile, and the Other- mothers performed to an enthusiastic crowd. " It really came off well, " said Dan Pearson, the C.A.C. ' s new ' ly-elected president. " We raised some money and we got a lot of peti- tions signed. " Other issues were more localized, and perhaps of less interest to the campus popula- tion at large. As of this writing, it looks like both the Student Government and Universi- ty Media Board will have new constitutions, though they will not be called that, as the ad- ministration seems to prefer the term " charters " for reasons that have so far re- mained obscure. One advantage of such documents is that they will clarify procedures fur replacing editors and other media heads when they leave office before their term is up. And in the case of the media, the new charter will replace the controversial election process with a carefully chosen selection committee. The Media Board as a whole had to select new editors for The Carolinian, the Coraddi, and the Pine Needles, long before their new charter was ratified. First, the previously chosen Pine Needles editor had to withdraw from school for medical reasons during the fall. Then, at the end of that semester, the elected editor of The Carolinian resigned after several months of conflict with the Media Board and numerous absences from that Board ' s meetings. Although he claimed that his troubles largely lay in a personal conflict with the editor of another medium, at least one faculty member on the Board indicated that the situation was more complex, and im- plied that The Carolinian editor would have faced some harsh scrutiny if he had remain- ed in office. At any rate, the Board first ap- pointed an acting editor, then, after accepting applications from various candidates, selected Greg Brown as the editor for the r emainder of the semester. This decision proved un- popular with some staff members, who quit, declaring their intentions of starting a paper of their own. Only time will tell whether their abilities are equal to their ambitions. If all of this wasn ' t turmoil enough, the elected editor of the Coraddi failed to produce a single issue during the Fall semester and then did not return to school in the Spring. Fortunately, Dawn Ellen Nubel, who had suc- cessfully edited the publication for two years previously, was persuaded to step back into that position, greatly increasing the magazine ' s chances for longterm survival. No doubt other issues will arise before the Spring semester is over. Despite UNCG ' s reputation for apathy, some students do take notice of what goes on around them, and there are always a few who can be depended upon to get worked up over almost anything. Which is a good sign, really. Whether it ' s local legislation or foreign relations or manuever- ings in the university media, any concern that takes us outside of our limited self interests is to be commended. -Ian McDowell Cheerleaders Spread Excitement You are sitting in your room, when you hear them yelping outside your door. You see them hysterically jumping around, running through the hall. And they are screaming " Let ' s go! Let ' s throw down! Let ' s gol " They are the 1985-86 UNC-G Spartan cheerleaders. Charging through dorms was just one of the unusual stunts the cheerleaders created to seize students ' attention. Holding pep rallies (even for the Homecoming soccer game), wearing bright gold sweatsuits on basketball game days, performing be-boppy and jerky cheers, and incorporating dance routines and gymnastics into their pro- grams were all ways in which the cheerleaders showed they cared about- UNC-G athletics and that they wanted all UNC-G students to express the same spirit. And it worked! " This year ' s crowd is different from last year ' s crowd, " says captain Ann Bryant, sophomore Communications ma- jor. " Last year we had problems getting people to come out to the games and " then to participate with us. Sometimes we would get discouraged and half-heartedly do a cheer. But this year, more people have been coming out. Everyone seems so excited, and we get tremendous feed- back. That helps us put over our one hun- dred percent into our cheers! " Putting their one hundred percent in- to the squad meant putting in more than just enthusiasm. It also meant each cheerleader contributing her own in- dividual style to the squad ' s routines. Since Ann was the only cheerleader who had previously cheered for UNC-G and Captain Lynne Gates, junior Business Home Economics major, was the only up- perclassman, a variety of styles was us- ed in the squad ' s programs. Most of the cheerleaders were coming from different schools and still used the same techniques they had used then. According to Ann, the variety of cheering styles came in handy when they had great crowd par- ticipation. The more creative their moves were, the more ways they had to direct the crowd ' s enthusiasm. Not only did the cheerleaders con- tribute energj ' to the squad, so did the coaches and assistants who helped the cheerleaders strengthen their technique. Katherine Knapp put as much spunk in- to coaching the cheerleaders as she did into recruiting new UNC-G students for the admissions office. Assistant coach Nancy Spiver used the knowledge she ac- quired from cheerleading camps to help the cheerleaders work on their precision. And Jack Panyak on, freshman Pre- engineering major and North Carolina ' s 1984 champion gymnast, helped the cheerleaders with their gymnastic and building stunts. " The coaches and captains are really good at working with us, " says Leigh Good, freshman Math major. " WTien they critique us, they point out what needs to be worked on as well as what looks real- ly nice. " The friendly atmosphere that the squad shared was what Lynn Gates claims she liked most about being a cheerleader. " There is so much I enjoy about cheerleading: the excitement I feel when the crowd is participating, the honor in representing UNC-G. But the relation- ships that I establish with the people I ' m working with are what ' s most valuable to me. " Not only did the cheerleaders try to spread team spirit into the crowd and amongst themselves, but also amongst the athletes. The cheerleaders and athletes worked as a team. One of the things the cheerleaders did to promote that team spirit was to have " secret " basketball players. On game days the cheerleaders sent notes of encourage- ment letting the players know they sup- ported them. The UNC-G cheerleaders support an idea— the idea of people getting excited about UNC-G. And UNC-G ' s athletic teams are deserving of that excitement. Sheila Bowling There goes one past the water fountain. Hurry, catch that tennis ball before it runs in- to the person coming from room 220... Watch out! A near miss. That flying tennis ball came from the ten- nis racket of Jackie Mitchell. It was Friday night, and there was the second floor resident assistant thumping tennis balls with one of the four girls on her hall who hadn ' t left for the weekend. Not what one normally pictures an R.A. doing while " on duty. " Two freshmen girls on her hall certainly did not envision having such an R.A.; they were less prepared for the shocking reality of Jackie being president of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. " I was at this party at the beginning of this school year, " said Jackie. " And it was as if I were the maid, the grandmother who stays up and makes sure everyone ' s tucked in. They said, ' You go to parties? We didn ' t think R.A. ' s were allowed to leave the dorm. ' I couldn ' t get over it. " Jackie said that the girls later went to par- ties with her and her friends. They realized what Jackie hoped all the people on her hall would soon understand, that she was human and loved to have fun. Jackie also wanted them to know that she was a friend they could talk to when they needed one. Jackie says an R.A. ought to establish a feel- ing of mutual respect among the people on her hall. She said that she had to let them know that she wasn ' t some creature put there to take their priveleges away, but that she did want to be treated with respect. She says she treated the girls on her hall the same way. " I did not give one reprimand on my hall. I didn ' t need to, " Jackie said. " But if the oc- casion had arisen, I would not have hesitated to hand one out. That ' s important to an R.A., letting the people on her hall know how things stand. That way there ' s no surprises for either side. " Every job involves certain disadvantages that balance the corresponding advantages. With the job of being president of Alpha Delta Pi, for instance, came the tons of paperwork that are part of any business. However, Jackie says that the experience and the friendships make it more than worthwhile. And although being an R.A. meant knocks at her door in the middle of the night, the satisfaction of help- ing someone solve her problem more than compensated for the inconvenience. Jackie says this year was the best one she ' s had during her three and a half years at UNCG. She started off at St. Mary ' s Junior College where she received her two-year Associate of Arts degree before entering the design program here. Since she ' s been here, she ' s worked with two design firms from which she says she ' s gained enormous experience. Jackie won ' t be here when the 1986-87 school year begins. She graduates this spring. But she says that if she were going to be here next year, she ' d gladly be an R.A. again. It ' s a job she recommends to anyone who enjoys working with people. The rewards she claims to have recieved from the job are " irreplacable. " Sheila Bowling Jackie Mitchell: R.A.s Are Human Too Studying: The Horror The day of exams creeps closer, but your progress is slow. You ' ve read over a hundred pages already, but that ' s taken you almost two days, and you ' ve still got another two hundred pages to familiarize yourself with and less than twenty-fours hours to do it in. Stimulants become necessary; hot coffee, No-Doz, Vivarin, and even less legal substances. It becomes so easy to become distracted. Someone calls to ask you if you have so- and-so ' s phone number and makes idle conversation for a good twenty minutes. You turn on the TV for background am- bience and get caught up in the plot of Attack of the Crab Monsters or the sub- tle theological implications of Dr. Gene Scott ' s sermon, ' i ou start noticing in- teresting patterns of peeling paint on your ceiling. Giving in to the impulse to doodle, you find yourself decorating your notebook with intricate miniature draw- ings of cars and weapons and animals and grimacing faces. Nor does it help to seek refuge in the library or EUC. There, you notice the people around you, all hunched over books and notebooks of their own— all their faces stamped with the same mark of harried desperation. If the hour is par- ticularly late, and your mind particular- ly frazzled, you may find yourself imagin- ing you can pick up their thoughts like some kind of psychic receiver being jammed by random foreign signals. The notes or the textbook page in front of you blurs and becomes someone else ' s, as you momentarily see through their eyes. Then reality, such as it is, reasserts itself. And the deadline gets nearer. And the grind continues. Ian McDowell The Year In News It actually happened in early 1986, but for many the explosion of the space shut- tle Challenger seemed to be a tragically appropriate coda to all the tumultuous events of 1985, a year rife with disasters. The deaths of New Hampshire schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe and the six crew members are yet another reminder that we live in an uncertain world, one in which annhilation may catch us in a heartbeat, a ball of fire and cloud bursting from a painfully blue sky. And while most of the tragedies of 1985 were less spectacular, the pain was equal- ly real. It was the worst year ever for air disasters, and the threat of hijacking and terrorism added the element of human malevolence to the ever present dangers of mechanical failure and pilot error. The hijacking of TWA flight 407 by Palesti- nians in June, the November hijacking of an Egyptian airliner and the airport massacres in Rome and Vienna all made the skies seem far less friendly. Nor were the waves much safer, as the seizing of the Achille Lauro and the murder of Leon Klinghoffer proved. There were all the usual wars and rumors of wars, and famines, and plagues. Panic over AIDS spread faster than the disease itself, and the death of Rock Hudson gave the illness a human face, increasing the sense of public iden- tification with its victims. The discoveries of the remains of the Titanic and of Joseph Mengele were grim reminders that the cruelty of chance disaster and the greater cruelty of man have always been with us. Not all the news touched so close to the bone, of course. Events such as the ar- rest of Bhagwhan cult leader Rajneesh at the Charlotte airport seemed of less emo- tional significance, except to his followers. Some of these concerns were dwarfed when viewed against the larger perspective afforded by the arrival of Halley ' s Comet, either an inspiring exam- ple of God ' s celestial fireworks or a sym- bol of human inconsequence in the clockwork scheme of universal mechanics. Yet we were able to take heart from a lonely whale ' s slow passage to the sea and have our conscience stirred by rock musicians crusading against starvation, poverty and injustice. And if Reagan and Gorbachev ' s first Summit was greeted by a certain amount of skepticism and uncer- tainty, there was no small amount of relief over the fact that they were at least talking. As long as the men who control so much of our world are doing that, the final awful fireball is a less likely possibility. Ian McDowell Springtime at UNCG The UNCG campus is grim during the wintertime. Except for an occasional snow, the atmosphere is gray and depressing; shards of dirty ice He in frozen mud like pieces of broken glass. The interior land- scape is just as gloomy. Peoples ' spirits get as dingy and trodden as the frost-singed grass. Tests, papers and assignments are ever-present threats, and finals loom like storm clouds on the horizon. Then, just when students think they can ' t take it any more, the campus t lms...pink. Suddenly, the crabapples along College Avenue begin to bloom. Daffodils and dogwood blossoms emerge like a but- terfly ' s wings unfurling from a cocoon. The days warm up and winter begins to slough away. Sun- bathers take their towels and books and become Wordsworthian scholars, with nature as their study hall. Frisbees cut the air like miniature UFOs. Squir- rels jealously proclaim their rights, defending their turf from marauding gangs of mockingbirds. Like all seasons, this one too shall pass. Land- scapes, both physical and psychological, can only change. However, transient moments such as springtime ' s first budding make hope possible. Ian McDowell Daum Ellen NuJ)el A Walk On the Wild Side " They ' re out there, waiting for you in the shadows, " said a young man to his girlfriend as a nearby bush rustl- ed while they walked back from a late date. But he was wrong (or maybe he meant to be wrong)— that rustle was just evidence of the abundant wildlife population that makes UNCG ' s cam- pus home. Throughout fall and spring, it is almost impossible to walk more than a hundred yards after dark without seeing a rabbitt, squirrel, or one of the less frequent chipmunks and possums that live around the high rise dorms and the Mary Foust-Guilford area. And over the years, many of the animals have even adopted some semblance of domesticity. There are squirrels near EUC and in front of Weil-Winfield that will take food from passers-by, and squirrels and chip- munks alike have been known to scale the outside walls of buildings and take food left unattended on window sills. According to a Guilford County animal control official, " The campus is one of the better areas of the city for the animals. " She cited the near- by woods behind Cone and Reynolds as a primary reason for this, along with the amount of food thrown away by students. " You set ' em a feast of a table every day. " One UNCG grad student has a special affection for rabbits. " I like chasing them, " he said. " It keeps themon their toes. We wouldn ' t want our wildlife to get complacent. " And while campus security discourages students from chasing any wildlife they might see through the bushes because the chasers can be mistaken for " peepers " or muggers, they ' re more concerned about drivers doing likewise. " People going through campus need to watch out for squirrels and possums, " said one officer. " They have a right to be here too and peo- ple should watch for ' em. After all, they make the place nicer and more liveable. So, it seems, the safest place for a squirrel or bunny may have been rustling a bush after dark. That way, they at least add to the ambiance of the evening. —Mark A. Corum The Light Fantastic Science Fiction Fans at UNCG Members of i ' NCG ' s Science Fiction and Fantasy Federation, otherwise known as SF3, are gathered in Alderman Lounge, watching a videocassette of the first episode of Showtime ' s Robin Hood series. " Look how pale she is, " says one young woman about the actress portraying Maid Marion. " She looks like a real medieval lady. " " Nah, her teeth are too good, " sneers Larry Robinson, another SF3 member. " You ' d have to have lived back then like I did to know about stuff like that. The good old days weren ' t so good, just old. " Robmson may not have actually been around quite that long, but he ' s been coming to the organization ' s meetings for a long time, even though he hasn ' t been a UNCG student in years. That ' s one of the unique things about the organization. Members who either are no longer or never were students keep coming back year after year. One thing they keep coming back for is Stellar- con, the annual science fiction and fantasy conven- tion held in Elliott University Center. Every spring, the halls of EUC fill up with something stranger than sorority pledges of Student Government senators. Robots roam the corridors, aliens amble down the stairs, barbarians battle outside in the " L " . Actors from little-known and not so little- known TV shows wander about escorted by their entourages. Successful and not-so successful authors get together for forum debates of subjects like " Science Fiction and Drugs " and " The Logic of Fantasy. " And a merry time is usually had by all, even the passing students who pause to ogle the strangely constumed throng. " Either come join in the fun or just get over it, ' -says Juliette Hatel, Vice-President in charge of the iy86 Stellarcon. She is proud of Stellarcon ' s long tradition at UNCG. " We aspire to show the general public what it ' s like to be an SF or fantasy fan, to get people interested in what we do. " And what do they do? They show films and have speakers at their weekly meetings, hold medieval banquets (many of their memlsers also belong to the Society for Creative Anachronism, and there are close ties between the two groups), play SF and fan- tasy games like Car Wars and Dungeons and Dragons, and put out their own fan magazine ( " fan- zine " ), Beyond the Third Planet, which includes amateur fiction and poetry written by members. And there ' s always the next Stellarcon to plan. As of this writing, the 1986 Stellarcon is several weeks in the future. Still, it looks to be an in- teresting one. The Guest of Honor is to be L. Sprague de Camp, de Camp, an excellent science fiction and fantasy writer in younger days, is now probably most famous for rescuing Robert E. Howard ' s Conan the Barbarian stories from the mouldering oblivion of 1930s pulp magazines like Weird Tales. Starting with a series of hardback edi- tions in the 195 0s and, even more importantly, with a paperback line in the late 1960s, de Camp began arranging the scattered Conan stories in chronological order, finishing uncompleted ones, rewriting some of Howard ' s non-Conan stories in- to the series, and even creating entirely new ones, eventually at novel length. This literary resurrec- tion made the barbarian swordsman famous and paved the way for Arnold Schwarzenegger ' s film career. It also made de Camp rich. Other guests scheduled for the convention include Tracy Hickman, a role-playing games designer on the staff of TSR hobbies (creators of Dungeons and Dragons) and co-author of The Dragonlance Chronieles. a paperback series based on several ex- istant D D modules. There will probably be several local authors in attendance, as well as the usual quota of films and television episodes shown on various monitors and screens in EUC. " Fans are special people, " says one longtime SF3 member. " By living in both a possible future and several imaginary pasts, we are able to see beyond the illusion of the present. We ' re less short-sighted than non-fans, whom we sometimes call ' mundanes ' . We look forward to something more than another Saturday night at New York Pizza, and look back at more than just the last time some sexy guy or girl went out with us. We know there ' s more to life than that. I wish some of the people who call us strange did, too. " —Ian McDowell Black History Month February 2, 1986, kicked off Black History Month at UNCG. For three and a half weeks, various rooms, lounges and auditoriums in EUC, the Presby House, Curry and Mclver Buildings were given over to almost nightly explorations and celebration of our nation ' s Black heritage. There were art exhibits, poetry readings, a " soul food " dinner, dramatic performances, movies, and guest speakers. For twenty-five days at least, this university gave more than lip service to this important part of America ' s ethnic legacy. Speakers included Carolyn Coleman, the NC State Field Director of the NAACP; city councilman Earl Jones; Assistant District Attorney Thomas Johnson, who spoke about Malcolm X; Larry Bowman of the Human Relations Commission, whose subject was Black History; and H. Rap Brown, the renown- ed civil rights activist. Films shown in- cluded The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, Black History: Lost, Stolen, or Strayed (a documentary narrated by Bill Cosby), I Have a Dream (a documentary about Martin Luther King), and Raisin in the Sun. There was also a poetry reading by Constance Lane and a perfor- mance by the NBS Drama troupe. " It was very inspiring, " said one par- ticipant. " Everyone who came learned a lot about who we are as a people, about where we came from and where we ' re go- ing. I just wish some more attention could be paid to Black History the other eleven months of the year. " Ian McDowell •. •»«. DAK SAFETY FILM 50o y tv; i Firming the Flesh The health craze hasn ' t left us; anyone passing by EUC ' s Cone Ballroom on a Tuesday or Thursday night between five and six-thirty will see plenty of evidence of that. Limbs sheathed in day-glo leotards churn the air with rhythmic precision to the tune of an incessantly throbbing boom box; young women of every im- aginable physical configuration con- tort, twist and thrust; as the gyra- tions increase in ritualistic fervor one can practically smell the burning fat. Certain male EUC employees and media officials have been known to forsake their offices and duties for the third floor TV room during these hours, where they can be found star- ing down at the young women below through the glass door to the ballroom ' s balcony, their faces beam- ing studies in beatific rapture. Perhaps they realize they they are seeing acolytes of a new religion, vestal celebrants in the temple of the healthy body. Or perhaps they watch them for the same reasons that such young men have always watched such young women, especially when such young women are wearing tight or revealing clothing and are moving in a quick and rhythmic manner. At any rate, those engaged in these calorie- destroying activities have taken steps towards making their efforts less public, and newspaper barriers have been taped over the glass as a way of preserving the sanctity of the shrine. Which is understandable, though one might argue that the ogling young men are no more voyeuristic than the women who gather to watch lithe male athletes tumble about on the ahtletic field. Be that as it may, the women in the aerobics class are to be commended for trying to im- prove themselves in some manner. In the land of couch potatoes, those without cellulite are queen. Ian McDowell " At least its good clean fun, " said one grad student as she stood in front of Mary Foust dorm, just beyond the war zone. Under the streetlights surrounding Guilford scores of students were doing battle with shaving cream, water guns, buckets and even forty-gallon trashcans full of water that dumped on unfortunate females from Guilford ' s third floor. Near- by, campus police sat idle, just watching, knowing from experience that trying to break it up would just mean a respite un- til the next evening. " We ' re just trying to let them get it out of their systems, " said one officer. The " systems " he was talking about turned out to include those of half the students in the Grogan-Cone-Mary Foust- Guilford corner of campus. What " it " was, other than sublimated boredom and frustration with the first weeks of school, no one really knew. But one thing was for certain, for a week no one got very much sleep. " Dorm wars, " as they came to be call- ed, seemed to start with Guilford Hall; or, more specifically, with certain Guilford residents who decided to take a run " au naturale " down the sidewalk to Grogan Hall one night in early February. After a couple of nights, the windows of Grogan and Guilford began to fill up with people watching for the " boy wonders " or the girls from Grogan to repeat the perfor- mance. Meanwhile, one GuUfordite listen- ed on his police scanner and blew a whis- tle whenever a patrol car was ap- proaching. Guilfordites soon became frustrated with the Grogan girls ' refusal to " bare all, " while the police waited to grab those guilty of indecent exposure, and the onlookers ' energies turned elsewhere. That day the words " War Declared on the High Rises " appeared in Guilford ' s front windows. And pretty soon the war had escalated to include Mary Foust as well. Midnight water fights and mass moonings became the normal state of af- fairs. Cone and Guilford residents trad- ed verbal barbs and water raids across the street where police kept their cons- tant vigil. Those officers appeared stumped. " If we try and stop it now, " one said, " we ' ll have a riot on our hands. " They shouldn ' t have worried. A February cold snap ended the unseasonably warm weather overnight and reduced the dorm wars to a few scat- tered banners and a weekend of snowball fights. But as spring approached, rumours flew about what was " coming up. " " At least it won ' t be boring, " said Guilford R.D. Dave Ritter. Mark A.

Ian McDowell was always ready to write any articles that needed to be written, and Sheila Bowl- ing ' s enthusiasm for the project kept our spirits up at times when it looked like the book would never be finished. Our account representative, Harry Thomas, was willing to give us advice whenever we needed it. These people helped make the book possible. It is important to be able to look back, both as individuals and as a university, and see where we were in 1985-86. We hope this book reflects something about the year: the soccer team ' s national championship, the pro- fessors and students that contributed to the life of the university, the organizations and events we attended. I especially hope students will enjoy the Pop Life section, which tries to capture some of the fads and fancies of the year. But then, I hope students will enjoy all the sections: Campus, the Arts, Mindset, Controversy, Organiza- tions, Sports, Greeks, Classes and Finishing Touches. The articles in each section reflect the opinions of the writer. Organizations were responsible for providing us with any copy used with group shots. And last, I need to thank my mom who said, " Dawn, you know you want to go back to school. Gol " Dawn Ellen Nubel Pine Needles. 16 February 1986 P. S.— This book is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Dr. Warren Ashby. P ENS
