We feel that his influence will continue to benefit our school and the com- munity as we continue to grow. SANSBURY Dear USC-S students: The University of South Carolina-Spar tanburg reached an important milestone in 1973-74, ful- filling the enrollment requirements for ad- ding junior level coursework. All signs indicate that next fall, USC-S wai achieve the necessary en- rollment for adding sen- ior level coursework, meaning that many of you now enrolled will be able to earn a bac - cal aureate de- gree on this campus. In addition to an expanding academ- ic program, USC-3 is also developing a stronger and more varied array of extra- curricular activities, seeking to create a rn complete coUe community. Although this is sometimes difficult on a commuter campus, thanks to your efforts, and the efforts of a talented faculty -staff, our goal is becoming a real- ity, is an excitin time to be a ' part of thei USC-S comr munity anc we hope thai you will al- ways feel a sense of pride at being dt. member oP this com- munity, now and in the future. Sincerely, Olin B. Sans- bury, Jr. Director UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION Dr. Thomas F. Jones President Dr. William H. Patterson Provost The university administra- tion keeps close contact with the regional campus- es. These officials ad- minister to USC-S and co- ordinate our activities with the university in Columbia. USC-S appreciates their presence and involvement in such activities as the Palmetto Athletic Confer- ence Tournament, Dr. Sansbury ' s permanent ap- pointment as director of the Spartanburg Regional Campus, and graduation. Dr. H. Willard Davis Vice Provost Dr. Reginald Brasington Assistant Vice Provost Dr. John J. Duffy Associate Vice Provost Spring ' 74 registration brought an enrollment of 915 under- graduate students and 530 graduate students. Plans to in- troduce junior level courses in the fall continued as a result of acquiring over 700 full -time - equivalent students in the fall. This plan operates under the 1972 legislation which states that when a post secondary ed- ucation school reaches an en- rollment of 700 students, jun- ior level courses may be add- ed, and that when the school reaches an enrollment of 1,000 students, senior level courses may be added. .-1. n.. ' k TT 10 The problems of a com- muter school are many, and the Spartanburg Regional Campus has its share. But the adminis- tration, faculty, and stu- dents worked hard this year in solving some of them. Car pool lists and recruitment activities are two good examples of this kind of effective cooperation. At the end of first semester, car pool lists were made available in the Hodge Center Lobby. Covering a ten-region breakd own of Spartanburg and surrounding areas, these lists of names helped students know and contact other students as possi- bilities for forming car pools. Recruitment activities in- cluded committee meet- ings, visits to high schools, a " Send a Friend to College " ad, a recruit- ment rally, letters to high school seniors, and television and radio pro- grams. We thank the com- mittee for its service to USC-S, and the results of its work will be seen not only in 1974-75, but also in the many years ahead as we continue to grow. 11 THE PURPLE KEG econd semester brought many new activities and deas at USC-S.

Michael Blythe, a USC-S freshman, is a member of the band. He Flies ' Through The Air Testing New ' Bat-Glider ' One spectator joshed, " It ' s a bird, " another observer said, " No, it ' s a plane " Actually, it was just mild-mannered, BiU Barnes test flying his new hang- glider. Barnes was airborne tune after time, as he dashed dtmn the side of a gentle slope. clutching a 75 foot cable at- tached to the bumper of a speeding car. Hanging like a gigantic , transparent dragonfly, he stood silhouetted against the gray, afternoon sky, ready to swoop down in his self-proclaimed " twtrglider " and conquer the world stretched out beneath him. Conquer he might and fly he muit, but Monday morning he ' ll be back in the classroom leaching physics and engineering to students at USC- Spartanburg In fact, the UKO served more 26 tlian just satisfaction for an adventuring spirit It was a class project designed to demonstrate the laws of physics and aerodynamics The " bal-glider " is, iu reality, a RuguUu wiug, named for a NASA engineer in search of a mettiud tu land low-speed, re- entry vehicles on the earth ' s surface, rather than in the oceans. For the wing ' s frame, Barnes used sturdy pieces of bamboo, cut by his students in a ttucket near Woodruff. The bamboo was covered with tightly wrapped sheets of thick plastic and bound with heavy tape. The pilot supports himself by draping his arms over two poles which run parallel to the keel. The dimensions are about 20 x 23 feet, and the craft weighs nearly 80 pounds. Barnes and seven uf his students built the glider last week in the lobby of the Hodge Center in about eight hours for less than )25. Testing began last Monday afternoon on the USC-S campus when Barnes judged the winds to be right. He says a 20 mph wind IS ideal, pernutting the wing to glide between five and 10 feet off the ground. Two students help to guide tlie glinder during takeoff, and then It ' s up to the pilot to control the flight altitude by shifUng his body weight from one position to another. If there is uncertainty about going up, there is none about coming down. Barnes admits that landing is Uie hardest part, " bf ause your U ' g!i buckle and } our knees turn into skids.
