Time is the factor which compels a nursing student to utilize each moment wisely, for she must learn all the necessary skills to practice in only five short semesters, where hours are long and study concentrated. 30 In the freshman year, learning begins with what is proper dress for a nurse. " Get that hair off your collar! " " Was that YOU in the drug store with your cap on? " Once properly attired, activities are recessed to the college nursing laboratory where our beloved Mrs. Chase keeps her constant vigil. Rumor has it that Mrs. Chase is, in reality, a sophomore posing as a dummy and doing a good job of it. In groups of two we began learning basics. . . it ' s not everyday you can give a friend a bath. Somehow this program has the ability to complicate cleanliness. As one student was overheard remarking " I had to overcome seeing so many naked bodies! " 31 In the freshman year, many found the smiles of the elder- ly sufficient motivation to keep pace. Varied assignments presented opportunities and often frustrations. Summer sessions provided each student with an insight in- to the miracle of birth. " Did you see the look on her face when she saw her baby? " " I can ' t believe I heard that baby ' s first cry! " " It IS the miracle of birth! " As the sophomore year starts, the student senses the bond which exists whithin the class - a special feeling. The Stu- dent Nurses ' Association is busy planning the year ' s activity. 32 iS Work becomes more complex, and realization comes of liow short time is and how little one knows. A particularly proud moment is wlien the green strip is added to die cap signifying the sophomore level. Two years seems long, but before you realize it, orders are being taken for class pins, caps, and gowns. $25.00 to take State Boards????? Dear to each student is the memory of those many hours necessary to write the patient care study on someone with eight definite diagnoses. New experiences bring new reactions . . . " The first day at East Annex I felt physically ill with fear-now I had rather be there than any other area. " " I had no idea isolation was so complicated! " No one can describe how it feels to hold a sick child while a weary mother rests - neither can it be understood how different it is to give an infant an injection - until you have had that experience. " One little boy smiling his appreciation to me - that one moment removed all doubts. " The Associate Degree Program attracts the recent high school graduate, the young married woman, the middle- aged woman, the grandmother, and an occasional male. Because there is a common purpose, no generation gap exists. Friendships develop because we all need each other and we believe others need us. These two years require everything you can give BUT it gives in return. 1 33 SCIENCE AND MATH Dr. John Harrington, Convocation: " The wasness of the is " Dr. Eugene Odum, Convocation: " Ecology for People " Mr. Robert Harvey Mr. David Taylor, Co-ordinator Mrs. Betty Howard Mr. Charles Stavely Miss Sally Snyder Mr. Guy Jacobsohn Mr. Dennis Roberts [ Dr. Lawrence Moore £.. Dr. Ross Clark No! We don ' t spend much time on homework. Why, I only spent 7 or 8 hoia-s on " thermo " last night. I would have spent more, but I had to get to my physics and calculus. Mr. Gray said he would tell us when to start worrying, but we ' re advanced students; we started early. E N G I N E E R I N G The engineering faculty and students have a close relationship that is reflected inS.E. S., their society. In between the statics and thermodynamics classes, the stu- dents in the Engineering Society somehow managed to offer their observations of what it ' s really like to be a student. Their com- ments appear as captions for these pictures. Under the Society sponsorship, USC-S had its own " greasy spoon " as engineering students successfully sold hot dogs at regis- tration. Their field trips to such places as Lockheed Aircraft, Duke Power ' s Marshall Generating Station, and the Computer Sci- ence Building were truly enjoyable. Though tliey claim their courses are so hard they must cut out such luxuries as sleeping and eating, most students would not give up their studies in the area. After two years in their courses, tlieir books are still called " elementary " , or " an introduction to. " Sometimes they wonder if they ' ll ever get to the advanced studies. " But as sure as the sun rises, that blackboard will be full when we get to each physics class. It ' s not so bad being a full blackboard behind when coming to class, but I sure wish I understood the first one before the second one goes up. " ' t3 y ; . m Mr. Wimberly can completely go through two blackboards of highly com- plex formulas before we can catch our breath. When I get a chance to take some of my electives, I ' ll take it easy and enroll in a " crip " course like chemistry or topology or something. ? The Engineering Society feels that to become a good engineering student one must possess a deep desire to learn, a devotion to hard studies, and a definite background of schizophrenia. So says Steve Fowler, president. 39 a riddle wrapped in a m ster inside an enigma. ' — W.

Before you are past is- sues of the USC_S newspaper known as the CAROLIN- IAN. The future of this publication is in grave danger, for all past staff and advisors have departed. Your mis. sion, should you decide to accept it, is to revive the CAROLINIAN and if possible innovate vast improvements in its publication. " Mission Impossible? Maybe, but without knowing the dangers that lay ahead the challenge was accepted by unsuspecting freshman Bill Cox. Under the advisor- ship of Mr. Charles Winston the mission began. First a staff had to be found. On TV a beautiful girl is usually enlisted, but The CAROLINIAN had to settle on Marcia Powell for assi- tant editor. Various other staff members were drafted some lasted; some didn ' t. Newspaper work is incredibly dangerous, and the casualty rate is high. Transfers and drop-outs took their toll. Unfortunately, some stayed on to produce exciting, informative, entertaining, or at least space-filling copy. Included among the brave regulars were Pearson Cooper, Howard Shanker, Paulette Davis, John Howard, Susan Jim Coates, Donna Hammett, Lee Brown, Susan Turner, and others whose names have been omitted to protect the -such as an inside report on elevators Grimes, guility. The CAROLINIAN brought much needed stories to news starved USC-S students- and on outside report on outhouses. The impossible mission force survived such calamities as the case of the missing publication room (no one bothered to tell even the editor about the secret). Thus, until the new building is completed, the CAROLINIAN will be created in the halls, in closets, in dusty overlooked corners, in crowded stairwells and anywhere else unsuitable. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor dark of night, nor dogs, nor exams, nor nothing will halt the publication of the CAROLINIAN. Better luck next time. The CAROLANA Tucked away in the corner of the bookstore is an as- sortment of unknown persons slaving hard over the type- writer and desks. Fear not, student body, this is the annual staff at work! Only they know what it ' s like to meet a deadline- or miss one. Taking pictures, mak- ing layouts and then re-doing them , and running down to the first floor to sharpen pencils are only some of the exciting jobs available. This year the annual staff is truly fortunate in having the artistic talents of Pam Copeland, who did most of the artwork throughout this book. Under the leadership of Sandi McMillan, and advisors Mr. Knight and Mr. Crosland, workers Joe Shelton, Paulette Davis, Mar- jorie Floyd and Marilyn Hughes strove to meet their deadlines. Carrie George, Myra Ramsey, Linda Allen, Jim Coates and Danny Sullins contributed their talents. But only the student body can decide whether their ef- forts were worthwhile. 46 AND LANGUAGE Comparing voices in the language lab can damage the student ego. Mr. Lithard would contend that the South Carolina accent is a difficult obstacle to overcome. At any rate, people who take a language leave the course with a common experience: those earphones hurt like hell! Miss Wynn allows no such lan- guage in her classroom.

Coughing, she pulled her linty sweater closer around her and buttoned it all the way up. The heat waves distorted the girl ' s features as she stood beside the big bo y reaching for the coal bucket. A burnt wisp of paper floated out when she chunked the coal in. She stopped to shake the grate and watched the coals fall glowing and die among the ashes. The girl settled in the comer of the couch, propped her tablet on the ann and waited. The house was quiet except for the creak of the old woman ' s rocking chair and the noises the big boy made. Even the ticking of the wall clock was audible. Outside the rain was falling steadily. " Turn on the light so you can see. " The woman looked back at the girl. " 1 can see , A ' nt Mag, " the girl said. " No, it ' s too dark in here . Don ' t be straining your eyes, girl. " The woman rocked in thought. All the while the girl toyed with the pen, clicking it in and out. " You ready. Child? " The woman spoke at last. " Dear son, " she began, " just a few lines to let you hear from me ... . " The girl stood akimbo behind the rocking chair while her aunt looked at the letter. The old woman held it in her hands for a while, then took off her glasses and laid them so that their shadow fell on the paper. " That ' s good, " she said smiling. She touched her fingers to her tongue and creased the letter carefully before handing it to the girl. She watched as her niece ' sealed the envelope. " Well, that ' s your cousin Paul in Philadelphia. " The old woman shook her head sideways as she leaned back in the chair. The wind whistled and rattled the window panes A gmnt of thunder fell in the distance. And the rain pelted the ground. Her head thrown back, her body pressed against the slatted back of the chair, her big- veined hands gripping its arms, the old woman hummed an old church song while she rocked. Then she began to talk about her boy Paul. Paul did this and Paul did that when Paul was a boy. She talked about Paul ' s new house in Philadelphia, and the six children be had. " I ' m going to have to go see my grandchildren one of these days, " she said and lapsed into silence. " Can 1 turn on the radio? " " It ' s lightening ain ' t it, girl? " " No ' m, not around here. " . lready the girl had started for the box. The news of the hour was on. The old woman remarked upon the growing awfulness of the world, so many people getting killed. She shook her head The clinking oi the piates and the rattling of the pajis stopped. The sink made sucking noises that sounded oddly loud in the quiet house. The old woman had fallen over sideways in the chair in her sleep. The girl shook her softly and called out. " You got anything else for me to do before I go ' The rain ' s slacked up now. " The old woman looked up at the clock on the wall. " No. . .No. You better go ' head, " she said. She pushed her- self up and walked to the door behind the girl. They exchanged goodbyes, and the girl ran out into the drizzle. The woman stood shivering in the doorway and watched until the girl had disappeared around the comer. Slowly, she closed the door and turned off the light and the radio. Then she went back to her chair and rocked in the dark. ; B. Kerns tw: Sienna How generous of Humanity! The Sanctuaries, Reserves.

Baby, please don ' t walk in my dirt. It ' s so odd, I can remember my own Mother yelling the same thing at me. And now I ' m doing it and she will yell at her children. This house-funerals take up so much time. The church had a nice carpet, wish we could get one. Mommie, what is the floor doing? Nothing Baby, just getting clean or trying to. Now I sing my ABC ' s-my child genius, at t ' 0 she can say her ABC ' s in the correct order. Where is air? How do you explain that-it ' s all aroxmd, everywhere? No, that ' s really not a very good answer. Death, that will be hard to explain. She learns too much from television; gives her the wrong attitude. Like that little boy that cried so when he saw the corpse, they said he watches " Dark Shadows. " I ' m so glad that I didn ' t take the baby. He was trouble enough. Neither of us expecially agree with the fakey funeral idea, but how can you say to them that you won ' t go. They hurt so easily. The food, I still feel stuffed. Seems as if we do an awful lot so they won ' t get hurt. She was a God-fearing woman. She could recognize her sons by touching their hands. Many times she held mine, rubbing it-the minister spoke on. Hands have a lot of feeling, but does a senile hand understand that feeling? I really don ' t understand why we are supposed to fear God. Grandaddy sincerely believed and preached in the " Great Fear, " but he was a moonshiner too. Of course, mountain people tend to be that way. Sometimes, I miss them. It ' s hard for people, especially him, to understand about feelings for mountains. I wish the baby could learn to love and know their strength. This funeral was very much like my Grandma ' s funeral. I was so little and had never seen Mother cry. This was the first one that I ' ve been to since then and they were so much alike. Both of the women were aw- fully old, lived hearty ' , and were buried in a small country church. At least I didn ' t get hysteri- cal at his Grandma ' s. Controlled emotions, could that mean being matured? Mother has gone to be with Dad and our brother. The oldest son ' s memorial speech. Of course, her children were upset-but he hasn ' t known his Grandma for the last four years. He ' s been that way since he was discharged. Not nervousness, just something that he brought home with him. I wonder if malaria would have been worse? At least we now have each other, it is so much easier to comfort someone near rather than try to in a letter. All this we go through to end up like them. They mourned for about two hours and the rest was eating and visiting. -Rejoice, we are here to celebrate a victory. I wonder if the minister really believed what he said. For myself, I like to be able to feel and to be aware-she doesn ' t. -Mommie, are you through? Sit down, read me " Appleseed Johnnie. " What ' s on his head? -Just a minute, Little One.

A serene view greets this hiker at Linville Gorge in western North Carolina. Club sponsor Mr. Jacobsohn shows the correct rapelling technique. A rock climbing enthusiast must carry other equipment such as pitons, carabiners, and a heavy hammer. Once up there, there ' s an intense re- laxation that overcomes, and survival is the only thing to think about. Although only picturing climbing, it is hoped that bicycling, snow skiing, and canoeing will also be included in the list of activities for the Outdoor C lub . TENNIS TEAM Through rain, hail, sleet, and hopefully, no snow, the match must go on. A wet court is difficult to play. Blow harder, boys, we start in fifteen minutes. The first rule of tennis is to keep your eye on the ball--tsk, tsk, some- one isn ' t paying attention. A smashing serve fromYar- borough shows good form. Notice rabid chipmunk scars on right thigh. (Who says tennis is dull?) Are they frogs (ribbit, ribbit)? No, just the tennis team doing exercises to strengthen legs and wind. All this facilitates quick movements on court, necessary to a net play- er. Coach Spong demonstrates the correct way to serve as he tells player to " Hit the ball at the top of your reach. " Pleasantly surprised by the large turnout as opposed to other years, Coaches Spong and Davis stand with their team: Left to right: T. Hindman, J. Coates, J. Kenne- dy, D. Anderson, K. Bailey, Second row: D. Yarborough, R. Montgomery, P.Kim- brell, S. Loftis, B. Meder, Absent: B. O ' dell. 72 m mmm m mm ' - 73 BASKETBALL The 1971-72 basketball season was to be both the beginning of a new era and the end of an old era. In place of the red and black Bantams, a new team of purple-clad Spartan Rifles would take the court to represent USC- Spartanburg. For the first time there would be an official conference to compete in, consisting of nine regional campuses of bothUSC and Clemson. The new look also was accompanied by new enthusiams to become the first champions of the Palmetto Athletic Confe- rence. The odds were against the Rifles and many obstacles loomed in the future but throughout the year, the enthusiasm remained. Problems began while the first game was still far away. Several key players that were expected to carry much of the load would not be among the new Spartan Rifles. A lack of height now posed another obstacle and even more pressure fell upon 6-5 returning center Mike Hollifield. Coach Joe Bowman turned to a largely freshman group to begin molding a team. " We want to place emphasis on the players we ' ve got now and not count on anybody that ' s uncertain, " explained Bowman of the players that probably would not be able to compete. The Rifles would concentrate on defense and try to take advantage of the team ' s quickness in offsetting the lack of ex- perience. Hollifield and Greg Fowler, a freshman guard, were named co-captains for the year and with Steve Wood, Jerry Camp, Art McMahan, Andrew Hodges, Tim Conner, Rick Stone, and others all fighting to take up the slack, the Spartan Rifles set out to open the year. Bowman predicted at the onset that USC-S would win more than it would lose. Unfortunately the Rifles established a pattern that would not accomplish the goal if it were not broken. For the first 12 ball games, they would win a game only after losing a pair. The first loss came to Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte by a 91-78 score after trailing by only three at halftime. As a small consolation, Bowman ' s freshmen began to show that they were ready for college basketball as Steve Wood fired in 22 points followed by Fowler ' s 16 Palmer of Columbia greeted the Rifles a week later and had an easy time in taking a 107-70 victory before it was time for a victory. Spartanburg ' s first win, like several, served to avenge an earlier loss as the Spartan Rifles battled from behind to whip Central Piedmont 79-69. The game marked the return of center Max Elliott who was one of the many question marks at the beginning of the year. Fowler tossed in 20 points but it was Elliott who sparked the win with 23 points. Unfortunately for the Rifles, his return would not last long. Coach Joseph Bowman with his basketball team: LEFT TO RIGHT. G. Fowler, J. Camp, R. Dodd, J. Turner, C. Erwin, M. Hollifield, R. Stone, a. McMahan, A. Hodges, S. Wood, D. Pack, T. Conner 74 Now it was time for USC-S to enter PAC competition and the first opponent was USC-Aiken. The Rifles fell be- hind early and were unable to make up the difference in the second half. The comeback attempt ended with a rash of fouling resulting in a 79-57 loss. Palmer again completed the first cycle of the pattern by handing Spartanburg a 122-82 loss in a game that was never in doubt. At least it was time for a win. The Rifles, now 1-4 and tired of losing, took out their frustrations on USC-Salkahatchie and produced their first conference win by a whopping 85-65 score. " We ' re improv- ing steadily, " reported Bowman. " Our freshmen are coming around and I think when they start playing good ball we ' ll be all right. " The next test would not be an easy one as a return match was scheduled with USC-Aiken, who by this time was leading the Palmetto A thletic Conference standings. Spartanburg trailed 33-30 after the first 20 minutes, Aiken could gain no ground and barely managed to escape the upset-minded Rifles by a slight 65-62 score after watch- ing USC-S hold the lead several times in the closing min- utes. " It was the best team effort we ' ve had, " lauded a pleased Coach Bowman. Aiken had been averaging over 100 points per game but were held to 65 by the Rifle defense. " Our improvement has been so great it ' s almost unbelievable. One less mistake and it could have been the other way around. " The enthusiasm could not be boosted as the Rifles had another game to lose before tasting victory again. USC- Lancaster gladly co-operated with the unfortunate pattern and handed Spartanburg an 80-62 loss. The Rifles took their scheduled win against USC-Union by a 94-83 score, then continued the cycle with losses to USC-Coastal and Lancaster. Spartanburg traveled to USC-Beaufort for a victory and then it happened. The pattern was broken and in the Spartan Rifles ' favor. Clemson-Greenville visited Evans gym and found it- self the victim of a 73-44 demolishing as USC-S rolled to its fourth PAC win against five losses. Now there was a chance to draw even in conference play and enhance the Rifles ' place in the standings. For the first time all year, USC-S had a winning string, albeit only two games. It was not meant to be as Spartanburg traveled to Clem- son- Sumter only to return with a 73-59 loss. It looked as though the old 2-1 jinx was returning with USC- Coastal, a previous victor by 22 points, lined up for the next game. This time Spartanburg was behind by four instead of two at the half. But it was homecoming, and the Rifles had some cele- brating to do. They did it by outscoring the visitors 42-29 in the second half and producing a 69-60 revenge win with Hollifield, Wood, and Conner leading the way. The pattern was definitely broken, but a new one seem- ed to be settling in. The ancient Greeks might have deemed it fate and proclaimed the jinx as the will of some Olympian god. Against USC-Union it was undecided until the last three seconds if the new scheme would continue. The score was tied with only seconds remaining, and it looked as if Union would ice the game on a pair of free throws. But something went wrong. The shot was missed. Spartanburg hauled down the rebound, and the game seemed destined for overtime. But the ball was funibled away, or maybe the fleet- footed Mercury kicked it. At any rate the waiting hands of a Union player layed the sphere through the net with 0:03 left on the clock. Now it was win one, lose one. Better than the first pat- tern, but still not good enough. The win came right on sched- ule with a victory over USC-Beaufort. A loss in the next game would not do. The Rifles needed the win for a chance to tie for fourth in the PAC standings. Defeat would mean sixth. By this time Sophocles was standing by with a modern- day classical tradgedy in mind. Were the Rifles a victim of fate or was some tragic flaw spelling disaster? In the pivotal game against Clemson- Sumter the tragic flaw came in the way of inumerable inissed layups. Spartan- burg controlled the rebounding but rebounds without points don ' t win too many games. When the final layup was missed the string was preserved with an 84-73 loss. The other era had now come to an end. It was marked with a mock funeral but the mourning was far from the truth. Spartanburg had lost its last game in the old Evans Junior High gym. Next year the Rifles would be greeted by a brand new gym. A friendly place to call home. Only two regular season games remained and all chance of finishing in the top half of the standings vanished with the loss to Sumter. The Rifles were now 7-11 overall. They would not win more than they lost, at least not in the regular season. Coach Joe Bowman still believed that the team was vastly iinproved over past years, but so was the com- petition. There was still a chance to turn a good season into an even better one. The Palmetto Athletic Conference lay waiting a- head. )« a pmam wmmt HOMECOMING 72 Mary Easier was crowned homecoming queen for the 1972 school year during halftime festivities of the USC- Spartanburg versus USC-Coastal basketball game to high- light hom.ecoming activities Feb. 12. The roses and crown were presented to Mary by Dr. N. A. Stirzaker, USC-S Director, with assistance from David Anderson.

Prior to the scheduled game was an exhibition contest pitting the USC Bantams against the USC-S faculty. A party and dance at the Ramada Inn followed the games and festivities, which were held at Evans Junior Hig School. 78 sia»i iiiit:f -a 79 s P vC; y USC-S Rifles Score 85-65 Cage Victory o USC-S Loses First Game USC-S Handed 67-45 Defeat ' • t Spartan Rifles Are Downed .

Baseball is new to the Spartanburg Campus this year. With a brand-new competitive sport with no experience to fall back upon, it is difficult to predict the outcome, but Coaches Boswell and Mack have hopes of a good season. Out of thirty boys who tried out, seventeen were chosen to re- present the University against several high schools, regional campuses, and Spartanburg Junior College. Working on bat- ting averages and outfield, and physical fitness exercises at the City Recreation Park, the team hopes to compete in the PAC Conference held at Lancaster in April. .a LEFT TO RIGHT: FRONT ROW, J.

According to Coach Bowman, the roster of games will in- clude such varied schools as N. Dakota, Marshall, Brandeis, Saginaw, and a number of local colleges. Also new in the PAC Conference Tournament to be played at Gastonia. With high hopes riding on their talent, the team is com- posed of Tom Caldwell, Jim Brunson, Maurice Turner, Randy Humphries, Jack Turner, Tom Shropshire, Kent Edwards, John Bridwell, David Moore, Mike Moss, Jim Young, Steve Wilson, Jim Page, and Gene Rudisill. :,¥Ti»Kt;iK» ' S! 83 84 5- " St » :?.?$ f ., 0 " ' ;e 85 86 4 £aJMJ 87 Slol olS«w1«i Carolina APTUCATION FOR KOISTRATtON Datad I. , S.C. -6ar t. .I» ht «by appty for rvgiltrofion o» an • ««lor ond c«ftify wnd«r oottt Itiot tH« foNewtnf » -!,«- Sodol SMirity N».

Any student may come in and voice his opinion on any is- sue. Not only will he be heard but his ideas will be considered as much as those of anyone else. Unfortunately, not many students have taken advantage of this opportunity. In spite of the general feelings of disinterest, we have had activities where students were, on a whole, very active. The dances were our biggest events. Another successful endeavor was in the area of minority and low income student recruitment in which the SGA actively worked with the faculty, administration, and members of the community. Various other projects were begun, such as Student Volunteer Services, National Student Lobby, and official publica- tion, rap sessions, and film sessions. It has been the policy of the Student Government at USC-S to carry the involve- ment of the student further. Voter registration on campus was part of this effort. 89 SGA SECRETARY Valerie Henderson SOPHOMORE PRESIDENT Mike Lowe SGA VICE PRESIDENT Mary Ann Fore 92 SGA TREASURER Kaja Henderson FRESHMAN PRESIDENT John Howard SGA PRESIDENT Paulette Davis 1 ■ SENATOR Steve Wood SOPHOMORE VICE PRESIDENT Susan Grimes 93 Becky Adams Joe Adams Karen Allen David Anderson Terry Atkins Vickie Atkins Karan Bailey Freda Baker Gary Baker Lacy Ballenger Susan Ballenger Jimmy Ballinger BillBamette Larry Barnette Frank Bamhill Marian Bearden Thad Beck Steve Bell Ricky Benton Ray Billings 94 Joanne Bishop Phillip Blackwell Jan Blalock Becky Blanton Rick Boozer Debbie Bradley Ollie Bramlett Kathy Brannon Emily Brasheari Steve Brewington John Bridwell Janet Brock Elizabeth Ann Brown Jayne Brown Lee Brown Ronnie Brummett James E.

It is also an important milestone in the develop- ment of one of the state ' s most important in- stitutions of higher education. The Spartan- burg campus of the Universit - of South Carolina has increasingly become reflective of the type of approach and philosophy our state needs. Today there are 600-700 students on cainpus, students from this region of the state whose special needs are met by this in- stitution.
