Academically USCS has grown from a single college of Nursing to a university housing five differ- ent colleges of academic pro- grams, including one in Interdisci- plinary Studies. ln 1978, USCS graduated her first class of seniors after becoming a four- year institution in 1976. The 1979 fall season of men's basketball saw USCS in the num- ber one position of the Dunkel ratings. With this top rating came an increased school spirit and an atmosphere of unity between the students that had been lacking before. How could any- one look at all these accom- plishments and say that this was going to be an unlucky year for USCS?

Students come to USCS from different ploces in hopes of trov- eling on ond redching their dif- ferent godls. They hdve vdried DOCKQFOUDGS, idedls, drnbitions ond their own peculior idiosyncrdcies. However, for these four short yedrs in their lives they shdre one thing in common-USCIS. Some who come to USCS do so with the prevoiling thought thot this is going to be just on- other four yedrs of educotion, merely d continuotion of whot hos dlreddy been toking pldce for the post twelve yedrs. The students who progress the most though, ore those who come to USCIS with on open ond recep- tive mind, reddy to tdke on new odventures ond encounter un- known risks. For these people USCS becomes whot they moke it. v -Y 1 1' . 1- 1 " 11 0' A . 'J 'V -Q.. I u 1 Mig. ' . A5 Q ' 5 ' l'x 1-9 'jfg - 5 O ,K . .sl l -li . rxx ' 'sw if ' 4 .5 my .5 ff xv..

Anyone who tries con find plenty to occupy their time ond energies. The clubs ond orgonizotions ore olwoys looking for willing souls to tdke some of the burden off their ol- reody overworked members. There ore othletics for both men ond women, ond for those who enjoy rivolry between them- selves ond their friends there ore intromurol sports. For the musicol- ly inclined there is the pepbond, the University Chorus or Sigmd Pi Mu. For the fortunote few who hove dll their moving ports in or- der there is cheerleoding or the donce teom. Those odventurous souls with Greek blood in their veins con join Pi Koppo Phi, o newly chortered froternity on compus. And for those who seek the ultimote chollenge there is the Student Government Associotion. Forewdrning though, os usuol the group thot does the most for the compus is the one thot receives the most criticism. However, the fittest survive. If this isn't enough to sotisfy your wonts, round up o few friends ond stort your own club-new chorters ore olwoys welcome. gl 41.55 ,wsxglf-,ig eq, 1-,g .

Spartanburg County Commission The University of South Carolina At Spartanburg traces its history to February, 1967, when an act of the General Assembly created the Spartanburg County Commis- slon for Higher Education. It was this group of clvlc-minded citi- zens who arranged for the facili- tles for what then was a two- year campus and contracted with the University of South Caroli- na for the academic services which were required. Today, the Spartanburg County Commlsslon for Higher Education serves as an advisory body for the USC Board ot Trusttees. It also plays an important role in continu- Ing to upgrade campus facilities, and devotes much ot its time to promoting USCS throughout the Upstate. The steadfast support that the group has given to USCS over the years ls obvious from the fact that slx of the seven charter members stlll serve on the com- mlsslon. With exceptionally strong leadership from Its chairman, Dr. G.B. Hodge, this commission wlll undoubtedly continue to play a key role In the development of the Unlverslty ot South Carolina at Spartanburg. Dr, G. B. Hodge 1-- l Grady 5. Brooks F7 C 6- if Louis P.

Smith Hubert Hendrix Ernest Kluffz Marlon Gramllng Carolina Piedmont As USCS seeks to reach out to the community, it does so with the realization that its future is closely linked to community sup- port. State appropriations meet most of the needs of USCS, but these funds cannot be used for many important projects, among them awarding scholarships to outstanding students or providing extra funds to recruit or retain outstanding scholars. Friends of the university may contribute these vitally needed funds to the Carolina Piedmont Foundation, lnc. Founded in 1972, this foundation is dedicated to as- slsting USCS in accomplishing its goal of excellence by soliciting and administrating private funds and providing other services for the advancement of the campus. The Carolina Piedmont Founda- tlon is a fully accredited non- profit organization. .t is governed by a board of directors consisting Foundation of prominent men and women pri- marlly from the five county area served by USCS. The Associate Chancellor for University Relations serves as the foundation's execu- tlve secretary. In 1979-80, the Carolina Pied- mont Foundation enjoyed its most successful year. Donations by alumni, friends, and businesses brought a record sum of money into the foundation's general fund, and a number of new pri- vately funded scholarships were made available to USCS students. A major step forward was the transfer of the Buchheit Nursing Loan Fund from the Spartanburg County Foundation to the Caroli- na Piedmont Foundation. The foundation's major drive during 1979-80 was the success- ful effort to raise 5500.000 in pri- vate funds toward the construc- tlon of a new building for the Mary Black School of Nursing. Ma- jor glfts included more than 5200, 000 from the Black family, 5100, 000 from the Spartanburg Herald- Journal: and significant contribu- tlons from Inman Mills, Jackson Mllls, Spartan Mills, and the Monsanto Fund. As part of the drlve, more than eight Spartanburg County physicians contributed in excess of 575,000 toward the building fund. Durlng the fall of 1979, the foun- dation also provided funding for USCS' Southern Politics course, which featured guest lectures by George Wallace, Wilbur Mills, George Bush, Frances QSissyj Farenthold, .lack Bass, Dr. George Tlndall, and others. These appear- ances and interviews with Profes- sor Ronald Romine have been taped for rebroadcast over the South Carolina Educational Televi- sion network. A - I '11 L . i ' 3 FLY ' . 5 so NA: li i Dr, JOhI7 E. Kelfh George MlICh6ll Fred M0fflfT John POQSIS In another slgnlflcant develop- ment, a memorial fund honoring Richard E. Tukey was established at the request of his wife after his death ln July, 1979. Mr. Tukey, Ex- ecutlve Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce of Great- er Spartanburg, was a member of the foundation board at the time of his death. During the 1980's, the Carolina Piedmont Foundation will turn its attention to the creation of an adequate endowment. These funds will be invested to provide an annual return sufficient to con- tlnue existing programs and launch some urgently needed new ones. One goal will be the creation of a S1 million endowment for faculty advancement. Funds from thls Investment would be used to provide sabbaticals, money for research grants, and cash awards to provide appropriate recogni- tlon for achievements. Another million dollars will be needed by 1990 to meet the goal of provldlng endowed chalrs In each of the four academic schools on campus. These chairs wlll allow USCS to reward out- standing teaching with recogni- tlon and increased compensation, and will permit the campus to broaden its faculty even more by recruiting outstanding scholars from all over the country. Other funds will be invested in endowed scholarships, which not only will be designed to attract outstanding students to the campus, but will bridge financial gaps that often exist between education and people. Of particiular concern is the need for scholarship, loan, and aid money for self-supporting stu- dents who face discrimination in today's government financial aid programs. In a broader sense, the founda- tion will assist the University to meet such commitments to the community as the Piedmont Re- glonal Sclence Falr and the Maggle's Drawer's Llterary Con- test. Foundatlon funds will allow USCS to continue existing pro- grams and to identify additional possibilities for service to the Up- state. Above all, the foundation is committed to serving the Upstate. One aspect of this service will be providing seminars and workshops on planned giving, demonstrating the tax advantages of gifts to the University, showing how stocks and securities can be transferred to the foundation, and outlining how bequests for the support of higher education can be made to USCS as part of intelligent es- tate planning.

The purpose of the trip was to discuss matters of reform in edu- cation and commerce with the Chinese. The South Carolinians spent 10 days visiting with nation- al and provincial leaders as well as university colleagues. The Chinese asked that USC es- tablish ties with a provincial uni- verslty, Shanxi. The Cultural Revo- lution left Shanxi and other universities in China devastated. Former leaders of China attempt- ed to destroy all aspects of edu- cation. Educators were persecut- ed. students were sent to labor in the flelds, and buildings and books were demolished. The new leadership in China is trying to re- store and expand educational opportunities in China. In hopes of making an agreement with USC for the exchange of faculty, students, research, and other academic endeavors, the Chi- nese urged the Carolinians to visit Shanxi. After meetings with univer- slty colleagues, USC established a working relationship with Shanxi Unlverslty. The businessmen from South Carolina attended meetings to discuss matters of commerce and tourism. They encouraged the Chi- nese to upgrade facilities and re- lax restrictions of purchasing goods. The attempts to improve conditions of China are a definite sign of progress. President Holderman describes the trip to China as exciting and rewarding. The Chinese were warm, friendly, and hospitable. They planned tours of their coun- try, polnting out historical sites along the way. The last night of their vlslt, The Chinese presented a concert to honor their guest. The Chinese and Western music was played and sung magnifi- cently. Everyone was stunned when the choir sang "America the Beautiful" in English. The trip turned out to be a suc- cess in every way. Both universi- tles gained through the agree- ments, a friendship was renewed, and the visitors had the exper- lence of seeing and learning about China. University of South Carolina President Holderman meets with China's Vice Premier, Chou Ling.

Gunter Assumes Role as Dean of Business Administration The School of Business Adminis- tration and Economics first began as a two year program with con- centrations in Accounting, Ma l- agement, and Economics! Finance. William Kisseli acted as the first chairperson with offices located in the old Regency Motel on I-85. The School accelerated to a 3-year program in 1974 and in May of 1975 the first seniors graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration. Dr. E.L. Menees was now the Chairperson and the offices moved to the Administra- tion Buliciling in 1977 with a fulltime to-. of nine and a part- time tact.-li'--' ln January of 1979 the tv?-.-'sl '-.f 4 GCEECJ Building was opened and the School of Busi- ness and classrooms was housed on the third floor. In 1979-80, Dr. John McAlhany served as Acting Dean until Dr. T.H. Gunter accept- ed the present position as the flrst Dean of the School of Busi- ness. A fourth concentration, data processing, has been added to the program and a Business Advi- sory Committee has been imple- mented. The committee consists of businessmen throughout the community who contribute to and make suggestions for the curricu- lum of the School of Business. Dr. Sami Abbasi, in the area of Man- agement, and Dr. Faruk Tanyeloglu, in the area of Market- Ing, are the most recent additions to the faculty, bringing the total number of full-time faculty to twelve and ten part-time. The School is in the process of recruit- ing faculty for the areas of Ac- counting and Operational Re- searchfFlnance. Goals for the School of Business are to be accredited by the AACSB and to Implement MBA courses in the fu- ture. Also to add to the curricu- lum the concentrations of Behav- loral Management, Production Management and Marketing and Finance within the next few years.

Dr. Gunter clwoys hos time to help students with speclol projects. 1:91 Excellence in teaching is the top priority for the School of Education. The School of Education faculty has been recognized for outstanding teaching during the past year. Most of the faculty have also been se lected by the USC Graduate pro gram to teach graduate courses in the Spartanburg area. One faculty member was recognized as Teach- er of the Year for 1979-1980. A child's education is dependent on the education of the teachersg and USCS strives fo prepare the best teachers. Our future society depends on the children. Education is an important and essential part of their lives. Q? f 'Yun 'r Heirs of Education The School ot Education is re- sponsible for teaching, public ser- vlce and scholarship in the area of Teacher Education. The school and Its faculty have had an ac- tlve year in all three of these areas during 1980-81. The past year has also been a very active year as well. The school received a flve year accreditation from the National Association of State Dlrecfors of Teacher Education and Certification QNASDTECJ and accomplished major program revi- slons during the year. The Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secon dary Education Programs were re vised following the accredidation reports and these changes were approved by the USCS Faculty Sen- ate. The additional area of Earth Science certification was also add- ed in the Secondary Degree Pro gram. The service functions of the school have centered around providing in-service instruction. The USCS School of Education worked with Spartanburg District 4 ln Woodruff to provide a year long curriculum development in- service course at the graduate level. The structuring of this course has been accepted by the University system as a model for ln-service delivery. Additionally, faculty members have provided in-service to all seven Spartanburg districts and dlstrlcts across the state. One ot the most successful was the Pal- metto Middle School Science Proiect greatly supported by USCS. PTGCHCOI 6XDeTl9nCe WOTklI'1Q with children is G l'l9C9SSlTY in lTGlDiT'lQ fUfUI'9 TSOCTTSTS.

Carolana: How have USCS students changed since you began teaching here? Are they as well prepared as they used to be? Davisson: The students at USCS have changed in the number at the University, their age, and the type of majors they are pursuing. I remem- ber reading last year's aver age age was 24 years and 9 months which is somewhat older than a traditional col lege age. We also have nine available majors at USCS and this is a definite increase. Whether a student is ade- quately prepared for college depends upon the student but I know that over 601 of all four- year colleges and uni versities in the United States have a department similar to the Department of Develop mental Studies at USCS. This means that many students need some preparation courses in order to be able to handle college level read Ing, English, and math "Until students get away from academics, they don't realize the importance of any subject." -Turner courses. l'll let you draw your own conclusions. Jillingz I don't think they have changed noticably one way or the other. It seems to run in cycles. Sometimes you have one that is not quite as good. At least in my classes I did not notice an ongoing im- provement nor a deteriora- tion in student ability or prep aration. l've had very good classes years ago and I have good classes today. At USCS the type of student has not changed. As you know many of our students are not new high school graduates: they graduated years ago. If with this question you are raising the nationally declining SAT scores, please keep in mind that the decrease from year to year is a small decrease in the average score. It does not rule out any increase in the scores. In any case, I have not noticed a decrease In student ability and prepara l 40 E' 5 Dr. Davisson fion. Turner: Ipersonally don't think that students change. I have not noticed any change in the six years I have been here. Each group of students are different. "Are they as well prepared as they used to be?" Personally ln my area, the students that want to be biology majors have been well prepared as they've come through high school. Carolona-Do you think the concern on the part of the students with the tangible payoff that he can take with him past USCS, usually in the form of a good grade on a transcript, has gone too far? Davisson:-Weli grades are the standard of measure we use to evaluate scholarship in all education settings. Grades are more important during the first job interview if the stu- dent hasn 't had any previous work experience, l do think once a person gets a job the grades are less important and the type of work exper- ience and job recommenda- tions become more impor- tant. Grades are competitive but l don't think we are over ly competitive since we are educating young people to be able to secure a job and perform the skills DSCSSSGIY to hold the job.

Every student would rather have an A over a B over a C. How far one should push grade consciousness is difHcult to determine. All stu- dents face time constraints to "My definition is H101 idecll GCIUCOHOD is CI DGIGDCG of for- ITICI Gnd iI'1fOflT1CIl SGUCGHOD CS O life-IODQ leCfDiI"1Q GXDSI- ience. " D -Davrsson say nothing of ability and mo tivation differences. I can see students who want to go to graduate school try to make higher grades, and l can un- derstand their grade con- sciousness because GPR is certainly a factor when it comes to admissions. You have to have a minimum when scholarships are allocat- ed. However, there is a cost associated with grade point maximization. An economist would say that the student should consider the opportuni ty cost of an additional hour devoted to a given subject. For married students or for stu- dents with regular jobs, the opportunity cost is often high. Certainly a broken marriage is too high a price to pay for a four-point average. Turner: The concern for grades in any student body, in any school, is about the same. l don't think USCS is any exception or ever will be. This is just part of the "game" that they played or that must be played in Univer sities. They'll be competing for jobs. Grades are an indi cation of how well they have learned what we think is im- portant. Carolana: ln your contact with students, have you found them, for the most part, to be doing the work because they really love learning or be- cause they are worried about the grade payoff Davisson: l think this ques- tion is basically whether there is really something called "love for learning." l would answer the question by say- ing "yes" for some people. l can think of many people who read and study because they are interested in many subjects, topics, and general information. However, this isn't true of everyone. Some stu- dents prefer playing the game of Hguring out what the "We have students who are in love with learning. They are not pretending: they are not trying to impress their instruc- tors. " -Jilling professor wants them to learn and only learning that infor- mation. l do think that good teaching creates a desire to learn. l can remember cer tain professors who really challenged and inspired me to work hard. l think I worked harder in order to actually learn something because l admired the professor and probably wanted to be more like that person. When we only talk about grades, l must say that grades serve as a motivator for some students and a frustrator for others. As a professor, i'd like to think that everyone learns for the love of learning but l know that my hope isn't realistic. Jilling: l think we have both examples. We have students who are in love with learning. they are not pretending,' they are not trying to impress their instructors. They are really in terested in learning and an al most automatic payoff for such individuals is an A, expecially if they are tallented. Others work hard but for them it is a pain. They would rather watch television, or they would rather have a date, or rather lie in the sun. But they have the discipline to apply themselves and ob fain essentially the same re suits. The only difference in my eyes is that the first group has more fun. The second group just works. But work well done can also be re- warding. Turner: Freshman and soph omore students typically in every institution are con- cerned about their grades. When they become more in- volved with departments, with faculty, when they mature into realizing exactly what they want out of an educa- tion, it's my experience that most of them are doing the work because they really love learning, "enjoy" learn- ing is a better word for that,' they enjoy learning. They wor- ry about grades, the payoff at the end of the tunnel. Whether you're 18 years old or 58 years old, it doesn't make any difference, every- body worries about grades. l think when they get involved, they really approach a course from the learning ex- perience rather than worrying about the grades. This games- manship maximizes the grade, minimizing the effort is usually found more in fresh- man and sophomore students and less in juniors and seniors. Juniors and seniors "I enjoy teaching through an individual approach which allows students to work on skills and materials according to what they need." -DGViSSOI'1 can see the light at the end of the tunnel. They have goals in mind, with goals, they look more towards learn ing the information. My exper- ience has been if they're looking at learning as a voca- tion that the grades come naturally. Carolana: Students who are not working for the sheer love of the subject frequently re sort to "gamesmanship" in or der to halp maximize the grade and minimize the effort needed to procure the grade. Such students take a course because they have the professor figured out, more than because they like the course. Do you perceive this as a concern at USCS? Davisson: No l don't I think life is full of all types of grades. Everything we do is evaluated in some way and grades simply serve as a sys- tem of evaluation. l'm sure that students take courses from certain professors, but l believe that they choose the ones that are good lecturers, fair, or because someone else told them to take a pro fessor. realistically, I 'm sure that some students take a professor because they feel that the grading system is easier but l don 't think that is the "rule of thumb." Jilling: Well, l'm sure it hap pens but I don 't want to de plore it. A college degree may well be just the means to a desired end i.e. prep arations for a highly paid pro fession. A high GPR may be perceived by some people as a ticket to get them there faster. So if a high GPR is im portant, if A's are very impor tant, either psychologically or for other reasons, l suppose l can understand why some- body may want to take a chance on the easy route and achieve that objective. lt happens on this campus and I would say it happens on any other campus. This is something that we as educa- 1 1 1 1 1 tors have learned to live with. Before we leave this question let me caution anyone who considers this approach that lt is risky. A high GPR may well be a ticket to gain entry into a desired profession or activity, but it will impress no one and be of no help in the long-run if an individual's per formance is not up to the lev- el implied by the high GPR. 1 1 1 7. -A? Dr. Turner Turner: This is not anymore a concern here than it is at any other institution of higher learning. You'll Hnd the same thing at Wofford, Converse, the Methodist College, what- ever. Students always feel that they've got the professor Hgured out. Until students get away from academics, they don 't realize the importance of any subject. Some of them learn a little faster than others but all of them like to think that they're playing the game of figuring out what the pro fessor will ask. Those are the questions they'll study and not worry about the rest of the information. Carolanax How strong is the sense of academic competi tion that students feel on this campus? Davisson: I think that l would start this answer by saying that life has a certain amount of gamesmanship to it. Life is also competitive. This competition starts at home for the love and attention of the mother and the father. lt can be found when two children are out to recess and when two people are seeking the same job. l personally think that competition is healthy, providing it stays in balance. When it becomes an obses- sion, then competition is not healthy. Jiilingz l would like to think that there is some competi tion on this campus. But based on my observations of our class attendance, format of the homework assign- ments, class participation, and preparation for exams, l don 't think that the competi- tion is all that intense-at least not for the general stu- dent body. There is more competition between three or four individuals in each class. The competition is usually friendly and constructive. The students know each other, they respect each other's academic abilities. This type of competition, l am sure, ex- ists in each class. Turner: lt depends upon the academic program and on the students. lf you get into select programs, or profes- sional programs, the students are more competitive. the competition for the pre-med "Maybe l'm old-fashioned, narrow-minded, or rigid, but I would recommend that we don't go overboard with 'fun and games' that promise to make it easier to teach, and to learn, demanding sub- jects." -Jilling student is a little stronger be cause they are competing for a limited number of posi tions. At a commuter campus like we have, the students are not around each other as much. Maybe they don't feel the same way. Carolanaz Many students feel at some point in their academic careers, that they are faced with two kinds of courses they know to be easy, where the tangible payoff of an A is readily ob tainable even though he may not have to learn as much. on the other hand, there are courses with more demand- i 31 ing professors, where the grade will not be as easy to get but the intangible re- wards of learning a lot are much greater. Students may want to pursue these chal- lenging courses, but feel that by doing so they run the risk of their GPR falling and when it comes time for mass evalu- ation, as in law school, that there is a dichotomy here, and if you were counseling a student, how would you re solve it? "I think they're USCS stu- dents as well prepared for life os we can prepare them." -DOViSSOf1 Dovisson: This question itself has a dichotomy for I am sup posed to discuss one student versus all students. l will sim- ply answer it according to my previous educational ex- perience. lf l had a choice of professors l took one that l had previously had and en- joyed. lf l had had the profes- sor and didn't enjoy the course, l avoided taking the same one. l would suggest the following ideas to any stu- dent trying to decide what professor to take for a course: aj ask other students whom you admire as a stu- dents, about a particular pro fessor, bj choose a professor who teaches like you like to learn, such as group discus- sion, paper versus mid terms, Jillingz Well, now that is a very good question. This prob lem really exists, but it begins to be a problem at the high school level. There you have the same situation. You have the student who would like to have a high GPR under the assumption that an A aver- age or a high B average from a high school will make it easier to get into college. However, in recent years, with grade inflation, too many people have come out of high school and out of col lege with high GPR's, with B averages or even with A averages. As a result, college admission officers at the un- and graduate beginning to the GPR. They want to say ex- other indicators dergraduate levels are deemphasize look-l don 't clusively-at of academic ability and per formance. For example, SAT scores for high school stu- dents, and GRE scores for col lege students headed for graduate school, are prob- ably more reliable and more important indicators than grade point averages. lt is desirable to have a high GPR, but if the SAT scores do not confirm that high grade point average, a college admission officer would devalue the grades. The same is true at the graduate school level. As a graduate admissions officer one really doesn't know how legitimate a 3.7 is because of the grade inflation l men- tioned. So by seeking out de grees and programs at the undergraduate level that makes A's easy, one is handi- capped when it comes to the GRE who seeks easy A's in college or takes so-called crip courses to get the A's has a high GPR, but will be scoring low on the profession al exams the graduate schools look at. lt is easy to 1 A 44 ' L 9 f K .

Having a good time on campus is something that is understood, but if someone has ambitions beyond col- lege and wants to go to graduate school or wants to learn something that easy route could back fire. Now that doesn't mean you should never, never lighten your load by selecting one or two courses that you are quite sure that the effort demand ed is low or the level of fun is hlgher. But certainly the em phasis should be on content courses. l would recommend that preference be given to the harder instructors rather than the easier if there is such a think as an easy instructor! Turner: l am the advisor for the pre-med students and they are the ones that are really concerned with GPR's. I try to impress upon them that though they may get a C in the course, for example, or- ganic chemistry, if they learn this subject well, that this shows up in the second exam that they take which is the exam to get into medical school. I try to impress upon the fact that GPl?'s is not the only thing to look at in courses. If they get a C in or- ganic chemistry or physics or math, which are really the courses that are very difficult than some of the beginning sociology courses, those are looked upon as courses that every student should have. lf they get a C in them and it does pull their GPR down a lit- tle, industrial people don't look on that with despair. They are more concerned that students have the infor mation rather than the GPR. Carolana: USCS courses fol low the traditional collegiate classroom structure Clecture, midterm, final examj. Can you as a long time faculty suggest an innovative alterna- tive to this structure? Davisson: Alternatives to the lecture system often de pend upon the size of the class. I enjoy teaching through an individual ap- proach which allows students "I think the obsession with A's is a normal thing . . . " -Turner to work on skills and materials according to what they need. This is possible for classes of 20 students or less but it becomes next to impos- sible with classes of 40 and 60 students each. Projects, group or individual, need su- pervision and individual in- struction which is also impossi ble for very large classes. My recommendation would be to "I would recommend that preference be given to the harder instructors rather than the easier if there is such d thing as an easy instructor!" -Jilling have smaller classes and then encourage faculty to use some of these tech- niques. We 'll have to talk to the 'powers that be" to see if the public would be willing to pay the price of increased tuition, more state support, etc., to support my ideas. Jillingi I think the best "inno vation" would be to use a proven approach correctly, instead of looking for new ways of doing the same things all the time. The teach- ing of algebra, the teaching of economics, the teaching of a number of other subjects is hard work, the learning is hard work and l'm not so sure time spent searching for inno vative methods that promise to make it easier to learn such subjects leads any place. Maybe l'm old- fashioned, narrow-minded, or rigid, but l would recommend that we don 't go overboard with "fun and games" that promise to make it easier to teach and to learn demand ing subjects. Turner: l give more exams because my subject matter is more lecture type material. lt would be great to take stu- dents on more Held trips. First off this is impossible to do within an hour and half time span. Many of my courses do have field experiences, but l'm not innovative enough to think up alternatives. One is to evaluate them on what they have learned 3 or 4 years down the line, will they perform a job that requires that kind of information? That would mean evaluation again through types of an exam or observation. Carolana: Do you think an obsession with amassing A 's has resulted in a fear of do ing anything other than regur gitating facts on paper, even in some courses where the material is open to interpreta- tion? Davisson: The question of learning facts versus interpret- ing information is a miscon- ception by some people. ln- terpretation is based upon facts and the students past experiences with the subject. When students have difHculty with interpretation, this often "The question of learning facts versus interpreting infor- mation is a misconception by many peopIe." -DGViSSOf1 means that they have had a limited background with the subject and the facts that re late to the subject. Yes, it is easier to memorize facts and give them to the professor, but I don 't think that many professors just ask facts. lf the professor asks interpretation questions, then the student must combine the facts with his or her past experience, and knowledge of the sub- ject and interpret the informa tion. This is where many stu- dents get into trouble and not that they are afraid to in- terpret. Jiiiingz There are different levefs of learning. The lowest level izii-enfvoisizing a particu- lar cancer? idea, or formula. This is a neciessary part, a first step. Many of our students, in some courses, more so than others, often think the only thing required of them is to attain this first step of learn- ing. They stop when they can memorize a concept or a for- mula. l would prefer that our Q. cf. Dr. Turner students attain a higher level of learning. That they not only memorize but also under- stand and better yet, apply what they have learned to analyze real world situations. This goes far beyond just putting down on paper what the professor said or what the book may have said. But it is more dimcult, it requires more intensive exposure to a sub ject matter. I would like to think that in my courses, to do consistently well, one would have to do more than just repeat what l may have said or what the book has said. My students don't have to interpret anything the way I may interpret it. But in their interpretations, they have to correctly apply the tools they have learned in my courses. Take inflation for example, there is no one right answer to the causes of or the solu tion to our inflation problems. Whatever solution or analysis they present me with, pro- vided the approach is theo retically sound, is accept- able. Shooting from the hip is not good enough. Thus, when l reject an answer, it is not because the student rejected my own view, it is more likely that the answer reflects no body's view not even the stu dent's-it may just be, par- don the expression, BS- which is often the case. Turner: I think the obsession with A 's is normal, although l know a lot of students who are content with C's. This ob session with getting an A in most cases is because this has been indoctrinated throughout the school system and it is really difficult to change this idea. Carolanaz How well does USCS meet the standards of the "ideal education?" Davisson: Before l can an swer this question "ideal edu cation." My definition is that "ideal education is a bal- ance of formal and informal education as a life-long learning experience." If we graduate students who never want to take another course, then I don't think we have provided ideal education. If our graduates don 't want to read novels, magazines, cur rent profession books, or the dally paper, then we haven 't given them an ideal educa- tion. We do produce students with a saleable profession as determined by the number of students who are employed since they graduated from USC5. The remaining part of my deHnition will be up to in- dividual student graduate- "life-long learning." Jilling: What is the "ideal education?" I don 't know. If you want to be an accoun- tant, for example, the ideal education may well be the one that turns you into a competent accountant and helps to assure that your num- bers balance when you reach the bottom of your bal ance sheet. ln a more serious vein, the "ideal" education probably differs from individ ual to individual. In all cases, however, it should include a core of liberal arts courses. Beyond the common core, the student should have a number of free electives and he should be encouraged to take such electives on an ex- perimental basis in diverse subjects. With respect to pro fessional educations, I think one can get as good or bet- ,f Dr. Davisson ter undergraduate business preparation on this campus as one could get at any insti tution in this area. To get a larger selection of business courses a student would have to go to Columbia or some other much larger insti- tution. But for a school this size I think one would make a good choice coming here to USCIS. lf I did not believe these things I would have left a long time ago. Turner: l'm not sure I know what an ideal education is. I guess an ideal education pre pares students for exactly what they want to do. lt doesn 't give them any less. Due to the fact that we don 't know ten years from now what the student who goes "A high GPR may well be a ticket to gain entry into a de- sired profession, but it will im- press no one if an individual's performance is not up to the level impIied." --Jilling out of here is going to be do ing, we try to hit as many of the high points in education as we can. I think they're as well prepared for life as we can prepare them. l l S E . S ,. ...AC 1 , I- 2 '29- uf"'AtT-Q75 Lu l .

With the approval of the Univer- slty of South Carolina Board of Trustees, the School of Nursing has officially been christened the "Mary Black School of Nursing." According to the latest estimates by Westmoreland, McGarity and Pitts, construction for the new School of Nursing will begin late this spring, with occupancy scheduled sometime in the fall of 1982. The plans call for a 124-seat classroomjauditorium, two clinical nurslng laboratories, a learning re- sources center, and classrooms, seminar rooms, and offices. The building design will allow tor eventual expanion of the structure to two stories if circum- stances warrant. The announcement of these new developments last July was only the latest in a series of ma- jor accomplishments that have characterized the history of nurs- lng at USCS. In fact, the Spartanburg campus may be unique in the country in that it is a four year full-service urban uni- versity which developed trom the need for a nursing program. The story began in 1967. To meet a potential critical shortage of registered nurses, citizens who were interested in health care created a committee when Spartanburg General Hospital closed its diploma nursing pro- gram. This committee requested the University of South Carolina to establish a regional campus in Spartanburg to help meet nursing education needs. The new institution opened its doors ln the fall of 1967, offering as one of its programs an Associ- ate Degree in Technical Nursing. Durlng USCS' first decade of ser- vlce to the Piedmont, more than 500 students graduated from this program and became licensed as registered nurses. The new nursing building will house a 124' seat classroomfauditorium, two clinical nurs- ing laboratories, a learning resources center, plus classrooms, seminar room, and offices. ?W' --......,,,.-.-4LNL- ."S EES' According to Dr. G. B. Hodge, Chairman of the Spartanburg County Commission for Higher Education, "This step is being tak- en in recognition of the many contributions made by the Black family to medicine and nursing in Upstate South Carolina and in ap- preciation of the generosity of Mrs. Mary Kate Black Phillips and the late Miss Rose Black to the nursing building project. Miss Black made the first pri- vate contribution to the drive for the construction of a new nursing building at USCS in 1978, and al- together the Black family has donated more than 5200.000 to the project. Student nurses must learn the human anato my and how the body functions. Student nurses begin their practical exper- ience with dummy patients and later work with people in local hospitals. 4-gc ,,..,.--f""""""""' Inception of a Rhodes Scholar A USCS student thls past De- cember was one of 32 scholars from across the Unlted States to recelve perhaps the most prestl- alous academic honor of all-a Rhodes Schotarshlp to Oxford Unl- verslty ln England.

Holderman said. "The fact that he comes from Spartanburg, a rela- tively young campus, shows that the etfort and investment that South Carolina has made to bring public higher education within reach ot all its citizens is worth- whlle, and is recognized as pro- ducing graduates of considerable ability and promise."

To receive this award, teachers must be nomlnated and reviewed by students and faculty. Letters of recommendation are one aspect which the teachers are judged by. The following quotes from some of these letters illustrate the oplnlons of people who know Dr. Jllllng well. "I have witnessed him in an ot- flce environment with students and think his availability and con- cern for students should rate high In his standards as a teacher. He ls one of the most dedicated and conscientious teachers l have had the pleasure of working with. He strives for excellence and understanding in his prepara- tlon for the classroom and ex- pects, rightly so, his students to reciprocate with their very best." Other letters of recommenda- tlon include statements such as, "l have found Dr. Jilling to be to- tally dedicated to education and to the improvement and upgrad- Ing of USCS." "Dr. Jilling is always readily available to the students." "He ls always more than willing to help in a course when it is needed, to offer advice in a course selection, and to offer a 'pep talk' when the student just needs a lift." "The student can- not help but be encouraged by his always positive attitude." "Dr. JIIllng's main concern is that the student learn and understand the material and that hefshe under- stand how the material fits into the 'real world' envlronment." "His lectures are clear and con- clse." "He strives to make stu- dents aware ot their full poten- tlaI."

For indi viduals in peopleoriented pro tessions, such recognition is also an important stimulant for even greater effort in the fu- ture.

Computing improve- ments ln South Carolina's public lnstltutlons ot higher learning have kept pace with these develop- ments. The Commission's Comput- er Advisory Committee, through Its studles ot computing needs and recommendations concerning hardware required to meet those needs, has had a major role in the achievement ot these im- provements. From a variety of largely incom- I E-. patlble and otten inadequate computer centers, each operat- lng independently, there has evolved since 1969 a first-class Statewide higher education com- puter network. This network pro- vldes academic and administra- tlve computing support to 12 public senior colleges and univer- sltles, five two-year branches of USC, 16 technical institutions, four non-public colleges, the hospital and clinics ot the Medical Univer- slty, and the central offices of the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, and the Commission. The three major centers that provide these ser- vlces are located at Clemson, USC-Columbia, and the Medical University. Millions of tax dollars are saved annually by avoiding the cost of hardward, application systems, and overhead that should be required it each institu- tlon and agency developed an Independent computer center. The major center providign computer ser- vices to USCS is located in Columbia. -5 . ,. Y. . I g l ounseling and r Development Center A functional division established to provide professional assistance to stu dents who have normal concerns related to their growth and develop menf. The Counseling and Career De- velopment Center was estab- llshed to provide professional as- sistance to students who have normal concerns related to their growth and development. These concerns might include such things as lack ot specific voca- tlonal objectives, difficulty in adapting to the University environ- ment, feelings of loneliness and depression, famlly problems, a need for assistance in finding em- ployment, or any of other personal or cerns. Counseling is a which students can more aware of themselves and others and deal more effectively with their concerns. Successful counseling should give students a better knowledge of themselves and their environment. All inter- vlews at the Counseling Center are conducted in privacy, without dlstractlon. All interviews are con- fldentlal, and no information is re- leased without the written con- sent of the individual. A fulltime placement coordi- nator is avaliable to assist stu- dents ln finding full or part-time employment. Listings of available labs are in the Center. The O number of famlly COD- process in learn to be coordinator :gel-fi -"l gisrovides assis- tance wittf r writing, job hunt tactics, and developing inter- vlew skills. A number of local and regional companies visit the Campus each year to conduct in- terviews with interested students on Campus. A major responsibility of the placement coordinator is the Career Carousel, an opportu- nlty for students from several area colleges, in addition to USCS, to Interview with a number of different companies. The Ca- reer Carousel is held each spring. Servlces offered by the center Include such things as individual and group counseling where one can discuss and explore, in confl- dence, any problems or feelings. The Career Exploration Service analyzes skills, values and inter- ests ln an attempt to select an in- dlvldually satisfying career. Appro- priate tests are selected when the student and the counselor de- clde that they might be useful in Increasing self-understanding and reaching educational and voca- tional decisions. The Center also admlnlsters the CLEP and ACT-PEP programs. The Occupational Li- brary, located in the Center, is a llbrary of educational and occu- patlonal material describing ca- reer fields, qualilications, and training opportunities are avail- able for use without an appoint- ment at any time the Center is open. In the area of consulting, Center staff members are avail- able to the University community as resource persons on the psy- chologlcal ancl developmental factors of college llfe. Staff mem- bers make ln-class presentations on requested subjects: when nec- essary, the Center may refer stu- dents to additional service cen- ters on or off campus. Anyone may drop in on their own or call the Center directly. An appointment is usually not necessary, but is preferred in cases where time is a factor. The Center is open in room 213 of the Media Building, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. Friday hours are from 8:00 to 5:00. The counselors are professionals trained in working with college students. They use a multi-dlscl- pllned approach to counseling rather than any one technique. Most importantly, they are per- sons who are interested in stu- dents and student development. Most of the staff also teach in an academic department on cam- pus. Center services are provided without cost to USCS students, fac- ulty, staff, and immediate families. ,sn "2'fw"'n'1 Bob Addleton invites businessmen to IIISHQTJ to discuss possible coreers with students Becky Edwards, counselor ot the Coreer De velopment Center, is responsible tor counsel ing students.

Because high quality educa- tlon should be readily available, USCS maintains low tuition and schedules courses at times that are convenient to both full-time and working students. Programs are designed to en- rlch the economic, cultural, and Intellectual life of the students and the community by combining career preparation with a founda- flon ln the arts and sciences. USCS, located in an area with a growing international community, recognizes the increasing interde- pendence among nations and seeks to expand the horizons of Its students by incorporating a global perspective into its pro- grams. Acknowledging that learning is a lifelong process requiring con- stant renewal, USCS also provides continuing education programs designed to meet the profession- al and personal needs of a vari- ety of people within the region. As a dynamic university, USCS wlll continue reflect and support lts unlque community needs and resources. The university intends to serve even more people in more ways and will consider, when appropri- ate, the introduction of new un- dergraduate and graduate pro- grams, the establishment of special lnstltutes, and the expan- slon of research actlvlties. The Unlverslty of South Carolina at Spartanburg offers equal op- portunity in its employment, ad- mlsslon, and educational activities In compliance with Title IX and other clvil rights laws. A highly qualified experienced faculty is the cornerstone to a quality academic program. The continued evaluation selection and placement of excellent teachers who not only teach in the traditional classroom but are also capable and willing to share thelr talents in public service roles will be a primary goal of USCS. Equal to an excellent faculty is the frame work ot curriculum used to meet the educational goals of the various programs. USCS will continue to strive for of- fering a baccalaureate degree that has the foundation of a di- versified general education re- quirement. Also majors will be of- fered that have an identifiable career objectives. USCS will seek the highest qual- Ity in each of its programs by seeking accreditation from the appropriate bodies. ln order to insure a quality pro- gram one must insist upon con- stant self-study. USCS will cotinue to analyze its various programs to determine if they should continue, be changed or remain the same. As a commuter campus with a definable student population, USCS must constantly be recep- tlve to new programs to meet the region and the states needs. All potential new programs go through a three step process of 19 feasibility study, 2y program development acceptance, and 33 Implementation. USCS has recognized its role in the community to offer a chance to all citizens the opportunity to pursue a baccalaureate degree. Many students Cover 5011 are "nontraditional" Many students were not exposed to the quality educational experiences neces- sary in secondary education to prosper or succeed in a post-sec- ondary program. Therefore, USCS wlll continue to offer developmen- tal courses in English and Math- ematics to help these students "catch up" and to insure the quality of graduates. USCS is a significant resource of the community and as such offers a variety ot educational and cul- tural opportunities to the pied- mont region of the state. The main vehicle for our community Involvement is continuing educa- tlon which is guided by several community based advisory boards. We will continue to re- spond to community needs that are within our talents and means. Graduation-A Sad Ending A New Beginning .Sin 0135 'Q ,snr"'wF A., B 'X x,, .Sl N . 2.-'-fswus-rqx . ..s..,,,x, , Graduation was an ending-the culmination of four years of classes, parties, and growing up. The college life had to be adapt- ed to, put up with, and eventual- ly, discarded. From those years, the remainder of the lives of the graduates were to be made. The ceremony was one of ex- pected pomp. The entire faculty, dressed in their respective col- lege robes, led the graduate pro- cession. Following the faculty, the graduating seniors entered wear- ing their black robes and mortar boards. The .,'. 1 .tfnimg oi collars, representing various alma rs'-oil--ar 'wed colleges of learning, is one ot the wr-'35 aspects oi commence ment.

Proud parents watched as their sons and daughters were recog- nlzed. The graduates expressed relief, sorrow, and everything in between as Commencement Ceremony proceeded. The ap- proach to the stage was possibly the only comical part of the ritual as students displayed various gaits: strolls, marches, and hops. The atmosphere was one of happiness and celebration as par- ents, faculty, and graduates emerged from commencement ceremonies. Mortar boards were thrown into the air as gowns and jackets were removed. Families dispersed over the campus as the four college years ended, be- ginning the new life for gradu- ates.

' ' 1 1 H '+ .31 lr CHAPTER II Student Life From the first week that stu- dents arrived at USCS to the last, the campus bustled with classes, parties, dances, studying and just run of the mill congregating among friends and professors. Freshmen being iniated to col- lege life found orientation and registration a prodigious ordeal- quite a different experience. However, anomalies changed into familiarities as students learned the ways of college life. A way that is singular, like no oth- er that these students will know in any other stage of their lives. Although a commuter campus college, USCS offered a great va- riety ot involvement for students. Publications sought help, the Stu- - ' .. ...g2z,Y,V -. 'Z U Q.. ' dent Government solicited for members, dances and concerts were held and occasionally a beer bust was held on the soc- cer field. For those not wanting to partici- pate in anything strenuous, there was always an empty fable in the Hodge Center to be used for ielaxing and conversing. An Introduction to Orientation at USCS is a once in a lifetime experience that all new students to this campus must en- dure. When a new student enters the doors of the Tukey Lecture The- ater, he will find that the orienta- tion at USCS requires much more than the registering for classes at high school did. Students may re- alize for the first time the impor- tance of a good college educa- tlon and that they are entering a program that will prepare them for a lifetime career of their choice. USCS: Orientation Usually orientation gives the new student what is commonly known as "collegitis." The some- times quite noticable symptoms of this phenomenon may include: irratic moving, fingernail biting, pencil chewing, butterflies in the stomach, and of course the con- tinuously looking for familiar faces. Math problems require a concentrated effort from most students. This student seems to be displaying an effort. These students seem to be a little battled and bewildered by their essay exams during orientation. Y lx QT-5 41 M' .. ,.,l -and -9 Anxiety and expectation levels run high. A new student attending registration may experience a sinking feeling when he hears the two words "placement test," of course, the idea of being "placed" is not so bad, it is the word "tests" that is so depress- ing. However, after the presenta- tions, examinations, and a guided tour of campus are over, the new student can be assured that he has indeed earned his place as a USCS student. Taking identification pictures gives these stu dents a short time to sit down after having to stand in long registration lines. These students seem to be suttering from a disease that's common to all students, writ- ers cramp. Registration A Short Course in Chaos For students who were not fortu- nate enough to register through CAR CComputer Assisted Registra- tlonj, the long lines and hours awaited at Packet Registration. Late Registration was held on Au- gust 28, 1980 for the fall semester and on January 14, 1981 for the spring semester. Packet Registration on August 28, 1980 processed approximate- ly nine hundred students during the hours of 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm. This large number was due in part from the increase of students enrolled from the prior year. USCS officially increased from 2424 stu- dents in 1972, to 2608 students in 1980. This reluctant student refuses to give up his summer vacation to register for tall classes. These loyal students braved the cold and nature's elements to register for the spring semester. D JE ' Q I -, all Students who wait to register durlng packet registration often find that courses they need or desire are closed. Still others wait in lines for hours only to find that their desired course has closed since the time they began to stand in line. This results in an- other trip to the advisor and still another long wait in line. Need- less to say, such an experience can be extremely frustrating. There is hope, however, for future registration, Director of admis- sions, Eric Jolley, states "The problems of . . . registration are being revived with an eye to- ward avoiding many problems in future registrations." According to the hare and turtle table, slow but sure is best. Does that mean we should be thankful for registration lines? As the lines wear on, students' patience wear thin. Although the accomodations aren'f terrific, it is better than nothing. Spirit at USCS is definitely unique. Both students and mem- bers of the faculty contribute to the excitement, noise, and elec- tric atmosphere that fills the gym- nasium of all Rifle basketball games. Directed by the cheerleaders, fans shout chants, and yell in sup- port of their favorite team-the USCS Rifles. Some people will go to any length to raise the spirits of fans that attend the Rifle Basket- ball games. This crowd snows their intent interest in the in- troduction ot the opposing team's players. 7 Q :inf at ,A Q -x .J R wt? haunqh. Y-' I.

Members of a "certain local fraternity" conduct their own cheering sec- tion while dressed in crazy cos- tumes. Other students paint their own slgns. Still others find the "reading of a newspaper" much more in- teresting than the introduction of the opposing team. Regardless of the form that spir- it at USCS takes, it is a feature that is unique to its students.

This col- lege enjoys a fine local reputa- flon. However, this reputation poses no threat nor inspires no awe in one particular university- USCS. The night of a USCSWofford bas- ketball game is guaranteed to brlng out the best in both teams and fans. This year was no ex- ceptlon. The Rifles bdllled the Terriers twice during the regular season, flrst Gt USCS Gnd ICS? at Wofford's new gymnasium. Without a doubt, both Qdmes were O "fight fo the finish." Record crowds and fans turned out to watch each team com- pete against their staunchest ri- val. The high tension games that ensued were a strain on every- one's emotions. Adrenalin levels rose as the scores continued to "see-saw" back and forth between teams. Lead by the cheerleaders, fans cheered wildly as noise levels rose to a deafening height. Unfortunately, USCIS had to ac- cept a marginal defeat in both games. The bitter defeat is not easy to swallow, but for the Ri- fles, there is always next year.

Renovations 8: Alterations As USCS rises in recognition of Its quality and benefits concern- ing higher education, the facilities continue to expand. Beginning at the Spartanburg General Hospital in 1967, the Uni- versity moved to its present loca- tlon in 1969 into Administration Bullding. The next building to arise was the Hodge Center, followed by the Library, Multi-Media building, and the Activities building. The latest construction at USCS began in the summer of 1979 in the form of an addition to the Hodge Center. The Hodge Center will be com- pleted and in operation by the Fall of 1981. This facility will con- tain handball courts, six new of- flces, two additional locker rooms, extra storage space, an auxlllary gym, and a hot food cafeteria. The auxillary gym will, accord- Ing to Dr. Olin Sansbury, USCS Chancellor, "take some strain off the present gym" by freeing the old gym from P.E. classes. This will make the full-sized gym more ac- cessible for intramural play in the future. The "hot food cafeteria" will be manned by Interstate United and provide students and faculty with an option to the vending ma- chines in the Hodge Center en- trance. Construction on the Hodge Center addition began in the Fall of 1979. The Hodge Center addition will be open and operating by the Fall of 1981. g . K . ' aa. : E mf' ' iv' .tj ff 'L 'Z 5-Lg!

Construction will begin in the Fall ot 1981. In years to come, a Humanities and Sciences building will hopeful- ly be approved and erected, pending action by the South Carolina State Legislature. The auxiliary gym will aid in making the full- sized gym more accessible tor intramurals. r .

That's EI'1fGl'1'CJiI'1I'TlSf1Tl During the tall semester, on a sunny POETS day, Hodge Center treauents were humorously enter- tained by Cyrus, Flip, Bounce and Company, otherwise known as Lo- comotion vaudeville. For the third year in a row, USCS students were entertained by this amazing group whose show included impressions, narra- tlves, comic skits, and juggling. The biggest attraction, however, was a seven toot unicycle. One thing that makes this group so special is the fact that they do special camps in the summer. These camps promote acrobatics, physical health and a real appre- clation for the classical Vaude- ville acts of yesteryear. Perhaps with the love for the art that these remarkable fellows have, Vaudeville may someday live again. Bounce soon finds that things sometime get a little hot under the collar if you can't rely on your skills. Cyrus, Bounce and Company display the art of mixing music and . . . poker? Cyrus and Bounce soon find that handling hot items is not always as easy as it looks. There's going to be a ham ln every crowd and Cyrus seems to be the ham in this one. I 1 9 gp.. ,xl -rf H..

Y Q 'N Walking in a Winter Wonderland South Carolina is the climatic melting pot of the south. ln other words, we get a little of all kinds of weather at all times of the year. The sun can be shining but the next hour may bring snow. Such was the case this winter. Students who had morning classes in either the library or me- dla buildings which have no win- dows got the surprise of their lite. Those who entered 8:30 classes to sunshine and the promise of warmer weather were astonished to flnd a fine layer ot snow on the ground at 9:20. Snow is still a rarity in this area and tends to affect people in sometimes bizarre ways. Snowball fights are a certainty as students scrambled to pack those first few flakes. The Hodge Center frequents were seen outside in their shorts and tee-shirts petting each other with snow. You have not lived until you have felt the chlll of a snowball melt down your back. Unfortunately, snow also brings to a commuter campus the dan- gers of driving home. This is com- pounded by the fact that South Carolina is not equipped with proper equipment in dealing with such weather. Snow scenes like this are not a common sight at USCS. Many students were surprised to see this "occurence" in a matter of a few hours. NTF- '--iA.5?'

Since the age of fourteen, Dr. Brown has had seven of her plays produced in University and community theaters. The idea behind "Bayou ReIics" was born in 1976 when Dr. Brown was doing volunteer work at a nursing home in Louisiana. "I read, talked, and played games wlth the patients and one day it dawned on me that nursing home residents are not at all like our image of them," she says. "Many people tend to think they are just slttlng around waiting to die, when in reality a lot of them are as spunky as we young folk. These senior citizens want the same thing we want-to love and be loved. According to Dr. Brown "the time was ripe" for this play. "Nursing homes have become a current issue, as evidenced by media attention. But more impor- tant than the popularity of the subject is the subject itself." The cast of Bayou Relics included Alta Snell, Dianne Jenkins, Debra Grant, Robert Doug las, Jr., Dewey Tullis, James Cheek, and writ- er and director Elizabeth Brown, an, Ni ' - 1 ,, - J..

Dedicated members met every Wednesday morning at 7:45 to discuss upcoming events and things ot interest and importance so the student body as a whole. 'his year the SGA presented pictures to all the Senators and Representatives in Columbia. These pictures were ot various campus scenes and were to act os a reminder that the students ot USCS wish to sincerely thank the people in Columbia tor all the hours they put in and for the tlne jobs that they are doing. The SGA also sent two resolu- tions to the General Assembly this year regarding the 71, cut back and to encourage the legislators to not let this cut back aftect the South Carolina colleges and uni- versities. This year as in the past, the stu- dent government was responsible tor such activities as Fall Sports Day, the Big Event, Miss USCS and various other dances and special events throughout the year. The SGA consists of an execu' tive president, vice-president, sec- retary, treasurer, parlimentarian, and a class president from each of the freshman, sophomore, ju- nior and senior class. Each year senate seats are determined by the number ot students enrolled In their respective classes. Expressing viewpoints and discussing difter- ent stands on issues are part ot the routine meeting. More often than not, members ot the SGA are notoriously known, but this publicity, be it good or bad, is all part of the game. As a poet once said, "lt something is controversial, or makes you think, you'll always remember it." Dedicated members met to discuss upcoming events and things of interest and impor- tance to the student body as a whole. Persuasive lobbying between members is used to influence the voter's decision on certain matters. The clock on the wall tells the story ot dedi- cation behind the Student Government Asso ciation. .: Mick"- gi if f ,I v-., ' 'I , L x4 -I'-.

As you can plainly see, this Pi Kappa Phi team member mastered this art years ago. Kind of like riding a bicycle, it all comes back.

An Now for Halfttme What is a Near Miss? A Near Miss ls a member of USCS' preci- slon dance team. The name is not o slight on any member of the squad, but Instead denotes a "near miss" on a target.

At that tlme, the mem- bers had no dance Instructor, so they were responsible for their own dance routines. For the past two years the dance team has been under the direction of dance instructor Kathy Thomas. The Near Misses perform during halftime at home basketball games, the Fine Arts Festival at Coastal Carolina and Spartanburg's Spring Fling. Al- though the team performs for both community and school, they have never been in competition. Tracy Easier, Jane Tillitson, and Clary Oglesby proudly display their skills as per- formers.

Q Around Town Spartanburg When USCS students get out ot class and find themselves with some spare time, they can do one of two things: aj stay on campus, or by run directly to their cars and leave without any knowledge ot where they are go- lng. Usually the later is the choice. Familiar sights around town Spartanburg in- clude such sights as the famous Spartanburg water tower. Such old sights are having to give way to new modern shopping centers leaving the Sights such as this only in the memory. s If you have a break l11:l.lf., fre morning hours, the subgefg breakfast always comes to rr-arid ln that area, there are several choices. lf you take the scenic route around Hearon Circle, most of your choices are in full view. The Waffle House and Wendy's are directly to your right. Farther on around brings Hardee's and Qulncy's into sight. Lunch time is consumed in try- ing to find yet another place to eat. A wide variety of cuisine in- cludes ltalian, American, Chinese and the well known Beacon, fam- ous for its tea. If you are a resident or live close by you can go to several different places for nightly enter- talnment. Cowboys, Brandy's, Scandals, Clancy's, Arthur's, Winks, and of course, O'Sullivans-home of the red Val- entines beer and the green St. Patrick's Day beer. If you're looking for a quiet evening for two, you may want to try Todd's, The Peddler, Four Seasons, Steak and Ale, LeBaron, A Touch Of Class, or the new Ad- am's Rib. For a dinner within a budget, Western Steer, Western Sizzlin' or Quincy's will fill your tummies and not deplete your wallet. After a game however, The Pizza Hut or Pizza Inn, King of Pizza, and Pafelli's are good places to meet and enjoy yourself. Whether one knows it or not, Spartanburg is a growing city full of shops and restaurants that can sult anyone's taste, and hopefully suit anyone's pocketbook. A touch of the old and new abound every- where around Spartanburg. The infamous ho tel Franklin reflecting the old and the Spartanburg clock erected in 1978 reflecting the new.

Deering-Milliken Corporation of- fers at their research center an area of relaxation, peace and a chance to be alone with nature, someone special, or your own thoughts. On a lazy, sunny, breezy after- noon, a peaceful rest on the bank of the pond can take you miles away and with the wind against your face, the ride there ls as beautiful as the place you are headed. A stroll around the well kept grounds provide an opportunity for a temporary escape from the presures of school. A spring breeze is a kite flyer'S deIIQhf. The different groups thot come to Milliken bring a variety of kltes in several shapes, colors, and slzes which make a beautiful aurora of color against a pale sky. Many students have exper- lenced a simple picnic lunch be- slde the pond. Other people come just for the enjoyment ot feeding the ducks and swans. Milliken is O Versltlle pIClCe which offers many people many different ways to spend their free afternoons. A silent tranquility is found in every niche of this unspoiled setting. Passing on to the next generation an appre clation for nature is something all parents need to take more time to do. l RQ- Q9 +I Lobbying for Progressive Legislation The Student Legislature had the 25th annual fall session in Novem ber. The USCS delegation traveled to the State House for the bi-camer- al legislature. The SCSSL had 101 proposals but only 67 passed the rlgld efforts of both Senate and House members. These legislators were assumed to be young and lib eral-minded. Their accomplish- ments proved them to be more conservative than their counter- parts. The 1980 SCSSL in a conserva- tlve movement passed legislation limiting state spending relative to both the progress of our state's economy and the ratio of infla- tlon. This year initiated Congressional dlstrlcts for the Student Legisla- ture. This movement hopefully will Increase the visions of the organi- zatlon as well as providing in- creased unity. The major objectives for SCSSL are lobby efforts for progressive legislation and recruitment of the uninvolved South Carolina campuses. The new officers for 1981 have great commitments for the upcoming year. The newly elect- ed Governor, Joey Hudson from Winthrop College, has made ar- rangements with Governor Riley for the officers to fly to Oklahoma to participate in a national con- vention. Chancellor Olin Sansbury was active in SCSSL during his colle- glate career. This year Dean Horton was appointed the Attor- ney General, he is responsible for coordinating all legislation and making committee assignments. Horton assists Governor Hudson in all state matters and traveled na- tionally representing South Caroli- na Including the Oklahoma Con- vention. This year's delegation from USCS has been our most success- ful. Charles Saylors is 4th District Chairman. Lynn Clemmons has served responsibly for two years as delegation chairman. Darin Newton was appointed to Co- Chairman of the Recruiting Com- mittee. Finance Committee re- sponsibilities were also given to Dean Horton. House of Representatives Mem- bers from our school were Rhodes Scholar Daniel Dreisbach, Darin Newton, Chuck Saylors, Lin- da McCown and Lisa Robinson. Senior Senators were Lynn Clemmons and Dean Horton. South COr0IinO Attorney General Daniel McLeod, center, was one of many available for information-seeking student legislators. INX P Introducing Lt. Governor Nancy Stevenson was one ot the more enjoyable tasks of SCSSL Governor Joey Hudson, Senators Clemmons and Horton discuss a bill on the Senate floor.

They pltted themselves against nature and its elements. Students found themselves sur- rounded by an abundance of trees, spiders, bats, wild insects and flowers. A miniature grasshop- per and bat were captured. Barn owls as well as many other ani- mals were observed. The students who strolled through the swamp found them- selves participating in life similar to the period of pioneers. This area of primitive, remote South Carolina was untouched by civil- lzatlon. This project is sponsored annual- ly by the Audobon Society and The South Carolina Society of Nat- uralists. Surviving without the pleasures of modern life was new for most of the participants. They discov- ered that living can be difficult without plumbing, electricity and the entertainment of television and radio. The trip taught the students to appreciate the wonders of na- ture.

Th reen Machine Spirit is Alive and Well Take twenty-six hundred stu- dents, add one pepband, danc- lng girls, one lively group of cheerleaders and what have you got? That's easy to answer. You've got a lot of splrlt, a lot of noise, and a lot of prlde-you've got USCS. The flnal score on the board ls dependent on the two teams that battle each other not only with bodles but with minds, but there ls something extra there when the battles are fought at USCS that has an Influence on the games. Some call it the home team ad- vantage, but it's more than that. First there's the student body, the group for which everything is done. Then come the cheerleaders, the most spirited group on campus. The cheerleaders are often taken for granted and sometimes even overlooked but still they are the nucleus of the spirited action. Along with the cheerleaders and their formations comes the pepband. Their dedication often goes unrecognized and support from the student body is usually lacking. But like the faithful mail- man, they stick in there through thick and thin.

Lord Carrington was in the Unit- ed States along with Prime Minis- ter Margaret Thatcher. The Britons were here to visit President Ron- ald Reagan. Lord Carrington expressed his vlews on several topics concern- Ing the United States and Britain. He stressed issues of the United States and Britain's alliances grow- Ing stronger and stated that British and American "policies will be pointed ln exactly the same di- rection." Carrington expressed his view that there is little hope of relaxing the tense relationship between the Soviet Union and the United States until the Afghanistan prob- lem is resolved. He also said that he found evidence of Russian and Cuban involvement in El Sal- vador very convincing. He stated that he believed that his country would do the same if faced with the problems of the United States. Lord Carrington said that his im- pression of the new administra- tlon's foreign policies is that it seems to be on the right path. He said that he thought that a powerful and intelligent team was surrounding Secretary Haig and that they are busy formulating an admirable American policy. USCS Chancellor Olin B.

Kelly is a Cadet Lieutenant Colonel in the ROTC. He is a senior at USCS, and currently commands the ROTC battalion based at Wofford College. He, like other USCS students, takes advantage of ROTC through a cross-enrollment program be- tween the two schools. "I've been interested in the mili- tary since high school," said Kel- ly. "l came from a small school, where spirit and discipline were Important. I liked that and knew that those some elements were essential in the military." The fact that Kelly's father and several of his uncles were military men also helghiehed his Oifrdciiort for the service. While Sitting in CICSS at USCS one day, Kelly noticed an ROTC shirt on a classmate. "I didn't even know what it was," said Kel- ly. "But when the cadet ex- plalned the program and its op- portunities for advancement, I decided to take a closer Iook." Kelly sat in on an ROTC class Gnd liked it S0 much ihdi he Cldd- ed a one-hour course to his schedule. "I wanted to go on a field training exercise right away, to See if I liked ii. But I hOdI"l'i been issued fatigues or equip- ment," said Kelly. "I went any- way-in jeans and a shirt-and my instructor rounded up a can- teen, pistol belt and rifle for me. After that first exercise, I knew I was hooked." From the beginning, Kelly set his slghts high in ROTC. "I knew there had never been a battalion com- mander from USCS and I decided to do everything within my power to reach that goaI," Kelly said. "I went for it and got it." Actually, it wasn'f as easy as Kelly makes it sound. He went through three and one-half years of training and several active duty assignments before becom- Ing battalion commander. Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Keith Kelly makes a last minute check of a rifle. And, accordlng to hls Instruc- tors, his performance ranked at the top of his class. Kelly successfully completed the U.S. Army airborne school, where he learned to parachute, and the alr assault school, where he learned to repel from a hell- copter uslng a rope. Both schools stressed physlcal fitness, mental alertness and leadership. But the accomplishment Kelly Is probably most proud of ls his completlon of the Speclal Forces candidate class. He was named dlstlngulshed honor graduate of that ellte group and was award- ed the black beret ln recognitlon of outstanding motivation, the will to learn and the ability to lead. Last summer, after becomlng a member of the Speclal Forces team, Kelly applied for and re- celved an active duty assignment wlth a U.S. Army Green Beret Team. "I learned a lot from them, because each team member was a top speclallsts ln his field," said Kelly. "lf was exciting duty, but hard work. The average team member was 6'8" fall and weighed about 215 pounds. I was, by tar, the smallest member of the team," he continued. "But I was deter- mined to keep up with them if it kllled me-and it just about did." Kelly wlll graduate from college and be commissioned in May. He Is gettlng out of Special Forces and golng into Armored Cavalry. Hls specialty will be aviation, and after an otflcers' basic course at Fort Knox, KN, Kelly will go to fllght school In Alabama. "Thls ls the first year cadets have been allowed to apply for fllght school rlght out of the ROTC program," said Kelly. "I was fick- led to get accepted. I feel so fortunate that l've been able to get everything I wanted out of ROTC. And now l'm gem . -I uct- ly what I want In active . Kelly is optimistic about iI1f-- fil- ture of our country's defame. "We have the knowledge and some of the best designs for equipment anywhere," he said. "I just don't feel like we have enough equipment in Inventory rlght now. But I think the situation wlll Improve, now that additional money has been allocated to de- tense." Kelly wlll probably retire from the Army one day. Although he admlts that a life in the military may not be right for everyone, Kelly feels that every citizen should serve in some capacity for some length of time. "After alI," he said, "what's two years out of your life, when you use lt to defend a country where you are free?" Kelly goes over the rules and regulations wlth hls Instructors.

Carter con- ceded and promised Reagan his "fullest support and cooperation" in the transition to the Republican rule. The polls were still open in the West when Carter acknowledged that his presidency was finished-an hour after telephoning Reagan in Los An- geles to congratulate him on victo ry. Ronald Reagan, a former California gover- nor, became the 40th President ot the United States by defeating President Jimmy Carter, "He graciously offered his cooperation on The transition and I accepted it," said president-elect Reagan, the conservative Republi- can who went from Hollywood to two terms as governor ot California, and had sought the presidency twice before. As his electoral vote total soared, Reagan said he certainly hadn't looked for such a landslide. "Listen, I was happy to get 270," he said. ThClt'S what it took to Win. President Jimmy Carter delivering his conces- sion speech after losing to Ronald Reagan. 4 So ended the longest cam- paign, in an electoral vote runaway that belied the forecasts of the president and the pollsters that it would be close. If never was, from the moment the first polls closed. With 57 percent of the nation's precincts counted, Reagan was gaining 50 percent of the vote, Carter 43 percent, independent John B. Anderson 6 percent. ln electoral votes, the competi- tion that counted, it was a Reagan runaway. He had won or led for 451 electoral votes, a comfortable cushion past the ma- jority he needed. Carter had led or won for 80. Reagan had 24.6 million votes, Carter 20.8 million, Anderson 2.9 million. "lt is now apparent that the American people have chosen you as the next president," Carter wired Reagan. "l congratu- late you and pledge to you our fullest cooperation and support in bringing about an orderly transi- tion of government in the weeks ahead." On Jan. 20, Reagan will be in- augurated the 40th president of the United States. At 69, nearing 70, the former California governor also will be the oldest man to take the office. Flanked by his wife and the high command of his vanquished administration, Carter told down- cast but applauding supporters at a Washington hotel: "I promised you four years ago that I would never lie to you, so I can't stand here tonight and say it doesn't hurt. The people of the United States have made their choice and of course I accept that decision, although not with the same enthusiasm I accepted it tour years ago." His concession statement had tl l it t I l been prepared by early evening, for the Carter inner circle knew it was over. Pollster Patrick Caddell was said to have informed Carter early on election day that the tide was with Reagan and that he trailed by 7 to 10 points in his own final soundings. Reagan's triumph was cement- ed with victories in the populous, usually Democratic states Carter needed most. Among them was New York, for 41 electoral votes the president ardently sought.

Riley, a longtime friend of the president, campaigned vigorously for him all year. campbell led Reagan's campaign to an over- whelming victory in South Caroli- na's March 8 GOP presidential pri- mary. Campbell challenged Riley in September to a debate saying each would act as surrogate for his presidential candidate. Riley refused, saying Carter could speak for himself. The two campaigns staged an intense and sometimes bitter fight for the eight electoral votes in South Carolina, one of two states in the nation where the voters cast their ballots for electors rath- er than candidates. Each side tried to outdo the other with last minute visits, sur- prising for a small state with so few electoral votes. Reagan came Oct. 10 and Oct. 23, Carter came Sept. 27 and again last Friday. November 4, 1980, proved to be a winning day for the Republican party. The Art of Studying Types of studying vary about as much as the types of students who attend USCS. Studying is nec- essary, however to maintain pass- able grades and stay in school. Each student has his or her own unlque way of learning required material. Some have tried the method of osmosis which involves sleeping on your notes in hopes that your brain will absorb them while you are resting. Another fa- vorite ploy is to convince yourself that studying is not necessary at least until final exams sneak up. The most popular way to study is stlll the "cram for exam" method which takes place a short time before major tests, mid-terms, and flnal exams. The Hodge Center coffee machine works over-time during this period. Evidence of this particular technique can be found at school by looking into the llbrary and the Hodge Center near the end of the semester. At home, many students resort to "burnIng the midnight oils". Some students prefer to study with a partner or in groups. Oth- ers seem to like their own com- pany and solitude. Some students confine themselves to a particular room. Sometimes we students have to find o shady spot to study. if we do a good job we get a good grade. Y ., . T ., ss K , -Q4 . 'WI s s M- .,.Nx,,.., . wx? ss T jp, Sir! . X . Q ...MN - , Ni' 'V N' ei F' as M.. ,Q Others take their notes and books to the great outdoors. When one sees a student chew- Ing gum furiously, or unconciously destroying the end ol his pencil with his teeth, he can be assured that the student is concentrating heavily. One of the best ways to study is to learn the material as it is presented, not by trying to ab- sorb it all in one or two days. But unfortunately, we never seem to learn. Solitude proves the best atmosphere. This student works diligently towards an "A" tor the semester. Dedication to school work is observed by studying as the sunrise burns away the frost. Tl., USCS Nature Trail- Campus' Best Kept Behind the tennis courts near the Burroughs Child Development Center, is the entrance to a little known section of campus-the USCS Nature Trail. Here the sounds and sights of nature are evident at their very best. The Nature Trail got its start in 1975 as an idea of the Science faculty of USCS. The USCS Student Government Association of 1975 agreed to help with construction under the direction of the Sci- ence faculty. Volunters working mostly on Secret weekends developed the trail in- cluding trails, tootbridges, and a complete outdoor classroom. The Science faculty contributed signs which were attached to trees, giving their latin and common names. After a few years of neglect, the 1980-81 Student Government Association allocated subsidies to the Outdoors Club for the restora- tion of the trail.

Cf' Although the Nature Trail is six years old, tew students at USCS realize that a wonderful section of preserved natural woodland exists so near. Picnic tables are even provided for students seek- lng a little solitude in a quiet sec- tion during lunch. Streams run throughout this enchanted, unspoiled part of the USCS Campus. For those seeking a tem- porary escape from the pressures of school, this is the place to be. This USCS student tinds the solitude of the Na- ture Trail perfect lor time to reflect.

A wheelchair, crutches or braces should not be the reason for the individual bot being able to enjoy a basketball game, indoor soccer or attend assemblies relevant and important to each student, including the handicapped. In the case ot the blind people, a cane and, usually, if the person is a student, another individual accompanies them. ln other situa- tions, a seeing eye dog is pro- vided. ln this case, the seeing eye dog is allowed in eating es- tablishments, everywhere the blind person needs to go. This is another way the law is met. Public Law 94-142 and Sections 501-504 of the Rehabilitation Act ot 1973 made it possible tor deaf people to have interpreters pro- vided for them. The interpreter accompanies them to all classes and conferences to act as their "ears." The interpreter signs what is said and says what is signed by the deaf person and does not interject hisfher personal opin- ions. Their iob is simply to be the communicator, not a counselor, or teacher, lawyer, or doctor. ln previous years, the School of Education has graduated certified teachers-deaf and legally blind-and both of these students are now employed. Meeting the needs of the handicapped is not only necessary, it's law. Not a counselor or a teacher, the interpreter's job is simply to be the communi cator. The ramps, elevators, wheel- chalrs, interpreters, and rails . . . lt's all necessary. And it's the law. Federal law: the handl- capped must be serviced and public buildings and facilities must meet accessability requirements. USCS is a public facility and is no exception. It's a sad misconception, none- theless true, that a handicapped person, physical, or mental, doesn't think, feel, or act like "normal" people do. "Normal," ln this connotation, simply means being able to conduct all five senses without added help. Handi- capped people deal with so much: imagine being stared at, talked about, whispered about, laughed at-all on a daily basis. Very few people are able to han- dle this once in a while: at a par- ty, in class-not to mention daily. A physically handicapped student must have total access to the facilities at USCS.

" In 1966, the Spartanburg Gener- al Hospital announced it would have to phase out its diploma nursing program. An already seri- ous shortage of health care per- sonnel in the Piedmont threat- ened to reach crisis proportions. A special committee was estab- lished to explore different means by which the area's nursing edu- cation needs might be met. The committee was headed by Mr. Charles R. Sanders and included Walter S. Montgomery, James A. Chapman, Jr., Benjamin O. John- son, Wyndham S. Clark, Grover Eaker, Robert L. Handell, Cleve- land Harley, Robert J. Loeven, R. T. Thomason, Jr., Charles Boone, Richard Tukey and Hubert Hendrix. The committee's findings led the Spartanburg County legislative delegation to propose the estab- lishment of a local commission for higher education that would bring a University of South Carolina re- gional campus to Spartanburg. In February, 1967, the commission was created with Dr. G. B. Hodge as chairman, and thanks to the strenuous efforts of many people, the campus was able to enroll its first class of 177 students that fall. Each year on the anniversary of the founding of the institution, USCS pauses to honor those whose help has meant so much to the campus and to rededicate itself to its mission of responding to the needs of our community. Receiving the award presented by the Spartanburg County Com- mission for Higher Education was Dr. John fJack3 E. Keith. Dr. Keith ls one of Spartanburg's outstand- ing surgeons, professional men, and civic leaders. His list of hon- ors and achievements includes the presidency of the Spartanburg County Medical Soci- etyp a directorship on the board of the Charles Lea Centerg the presidency of the South Carolina Orthopaedic Association, and a term as Chief of Staff at Spartanburg General Hospital. He has also been active as a Rotar- lan and an elder of the First Pres- byterian Church of Spartanburg. Because of his great interest in nursing, Dr. Keith's involvement with USCS came early and natu- rally. He was one of the first ap- pointees to the Board of Directors of the Carolina Piedmont Founda- tion, and he has been active on a number of advisory committees connected with the campus. Dur- ing the past two years, he worked tirelessly in the Spartanburg medical community to gain support for the Mary Black School of Nursing and to advance the entire nursing pro- gram. The award given by the faculty of USCS was presented to John M. Kohler, Jr. Since 1974, when he became plant manager of the Kohler Company-Spartanburg, John Kohler, Jr., has been one of the outstanding civic leaders of the Upstate. Dr Keith was res onsible for raising half of - D the funds for the new nursing school single handedly. According to John Kohler, Jr., the present position of USCS is a "reflection on original work by the original founders." W, ,. ,qv Y A past president of the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, he has just complet- ed a term as President of the Spartanburg County United Way. He also has been active in such organizations as the Palmetto Council of the Boy Scouts ot America, the Spartanburg Music Foundation, and the Appalachian Health Council. Mr. Kohler has made many contributions to USCS. He has served on the Advi- sory Council for the Spartanburg County Commission for Higher Education: the Advisory Commit- tee tor the USCS Division of Fine Arts, Languages and Literature: and search committee for the Dean of the School of Nursing. As a private citizen and member of the Appalachian Health Council, his support was instrumental in the successful project to con- struct a new building for the School of Nursing. Creativity, enthusiasm, organiza- tion, management, attitude and cooperation are the criteria for the Spartanburg County School District Three Teacher ot the Year Award. No better adjectives can be found to describe the current holder ot that award, a member of the USCS Class ot 1976, Mrs. Donna Lipscomb, the recipient of Mrs. Donna Lipscomb praised the "excellent faculty and staff that comprise this organiza tion." An avid basketball fan, Mr. Ted Conrad said he "enjoyed working with youngsters and USCS affords this opportunity." the Alumni Award.

Married to a past president of the USCS Alumni As- sociation, she has two children and is active in many of the civ- ic affairs of the Cowpens First Baptist Church, and has also worked as a volunteer for Heart Fund and Muscular Dystrophy drives. Ted Conrad, Jr., is one of Spartanburg's busiest and most successful businessmen, owning a Certified Public Accounting firm as well as serving as an officer and director of five other Upstate corporations.

O Ziiedicdtion Yields Fclme For many years organizations on campus have recognized those students who made excel- lent grades. However, a certain problem existed. Many students on campus were very active leaders in extra-curricular activi- ties: however, because of the ex- cessive amount of time devoted to these extracurricular activities, these students were not able to meet the high academic stan- dards of these honor societies. The HCII of Fame was proposed as a solution.

There ls an excellent bal ance between men's and women's sports and between spectator ap peal and lltelong skltls. Basketball has truly arrlved at USCS. When new coaches Jerry Wa ters and Andrea Morrison arrlved ln the summer ot 1980, they Inherited men's and women's teams whlch had won playott berths the pre- vlous year. Both squads are young teams which are on the threshold ol wlnnlng maturlty. Success on all tronts has brought a new sense ot excltement to be- lng a "Rltle Rouser" tor students, alumni, and trlends. The boosters plan to follow the Rltles to away games and, ot course, home games at the Hodge Center are al ways exciting, thanks to the cheerleaders, the pep band, and the "Near MlSS6S" drlll team. 0 1 -Hui 'fa i A Campus Phenomenon There is a certain phenomenon that occurs upon the USCS campus all during the year. This phenomenon is known as Riflemania. Riflemania is an obsession with the Rifles that occurs because the school spirit at USCS is so strong. Symptoms of Riflemanina include: yelling, cheering, jump- ing, laughing, and sometimes cry- ing. These symptoms usually hap- pen during a sporting event that involves one of the Rifles' teams. But Riflemania is not limited to USCS students, it also extends to the surrounding communities as well. Riflemania is seen by fans at men's and women's basketball games, soccer matches, ladies' volleyball games, tennis matches. women's softball games, cross- country events, golf matches. Riflemania is always predomi- nant at the basketball games. At any basketball games, a specta- tor can observe people shouting, waving banners, and cheering their team to another victory. The fans shout their players names over and over to urge the team to another victory. Cheerleaders show tremendous spirit in their support ot the basketball teams. Their ettorts and skills are unsurpassed throughout the whole game, they cheer with great detrmlnation and spirit. The jazz band, under the direction of "Doc" Lindsay, play pep songs during time-outs, before and after the game and at halftime. These musical Riflemaniacs lend tremendous support to the team. At halftime, the fans are treated to dance routines by the Near Misses. These ladies add extra ex- cltement to the game and pep up the fans even more. But the real spirited people at these games are the players them- selves. These men and women show great determination and skill on the court which urges the fans to support them even more with all the Riflemania showed at the basketball games. You iust can't say that USCS does not sup port their Rifles. And, it looks as though Riflemania is here to stay. nv' , J! 4' . riflemania . . lt's no wonder that the Rifles are always on target. Another big sports event on campus is soccer. The soccer team consists ol a group of men who know their game well. These players show skill making each and every game an exhilerating event tor the spectators. The soc- cer team exhibits Ritlemania on the field and the spectators are with them 1001. The USCS soccer team is another factor in the Riflemania at USCS. These men continue to uphold the winning traditions of the USCS campus. Women's volleyball is another reason for Riflemania. These Ia- dies play vigorously to make all their games exciting. Reggie Sheehan displays his tennis skills in o USCS match. Soccer takes great skill and determination as exhibited by USCS player Craig Bartosh. r,,Qf.!?!

Skill and timing are essential ingredi- ents for a winning team. And these two factors are exhibited in each match in which the USCS tennis team participates. Women's softball is another reason for the phenomenon called Riflemania. The women's softball games are fielded by la- dies who know their game wellg and they show tremendous skill on the playing field. Winning is also commonplace for the cross-country team. Cross-country track needs deter- mination, mental, and physical skllls to be a success. The golf team is another winner on the campus. They display con- centration and skill in every game. The golf team, with skill and positive attitudes, is another winner at USCS. Riflemania is an obsession with many of us here at USCS. But it is as it should be. USCS has arrived, and Riflemania is here to stay. Doug Brannon, Terrv O'Toole and .laimie Gib son lead the field at a crosscountry meet. Defending his goal, Fred LaRoche shows great determination. t af- 2-.' x -A. as P.-ga:-eloviltggq ' f + .- - X 1 -Q a+. was iw! g I ' 1- -f A .us --,:- sw' :soundca- -- Q., -- --U - ing-gp1'L1Q11.Y.ii'u.'3 ,iii vu u.s-,, '- q'.s-1,5 . ,tl ue., infernal Q' -J.-gk 1:-3 413 I 5 fe". ilk' . -ii wht.

This past fall, Coach Frank Kohlenstein com- blned his vast knowledge and the players expertise to sport a winning season. Even though the Rifles soccer team had never played together, Coach Kohlenstein aroused a feeling of unlty and team spirit all through the season. Coach Kohlenstein sald, "I feel we have gone from an individual concept to a team concept." Team unity proved to be the number one factor for the soccer team. The soccer team began their rookie season optimistically and determined. Playing at home proved to be a major advantage for the Rifle team. This year we can boast of significant victories over the NAIA District Six power house Winthrop! Also included in our statistics are victories over Wake Forest, Citadel, Florida Inter- national University and our major rival, the University of South Caro- Iina.

Mike Massey has led the Rifles four consecutive years and also has been named to the All-District the past four years. The District Six NAIA competition has been ap- praised as one of the toughest in the nation. For the last three years, USCS has faired second place in district competition. Our team has proven consistently that we are the team to beat. The Ri- fles were determined lo rank number one but finished second to Francis Marion in the district Experience meet. The Rifles had three members to make the All-District Team again this year. David Clary made the team for the third year, Massey has four All-District berths for himself and the newest member is Terry O'Toole. Terry wlll lead the upcoming season and should prove to be a strong contender in district meets. This season the Rifle team fin- ished with a 5-3 record. The amount of time and effort contrib- uted to cross country is extremely demanding. Many hours and thou- sands ot miles of dedication are necessary to maintain team sta- tus. Only the strong survive. USCS has been a strong con- tender for the District Six title for several years now. Hopefully, Ter- ry O'Toole can lead the other re- turnlng members, Doug Brannon and Jaimie Gibson to another wlnnlng season. Terry has been classified as a natural runner and hard worker, and has proven him- self to be a valuable asset in many of our victories. The starting Ilne for the District Six meet.

These attributes are important to each member ot the team and have been a positive factor in each of the wins that our cross country team can be proud of. Coach Kohlenstein was very pleased with the efforts of the team. Massey and Clary ex- changed the number one slot all year.

Coach Jerry Waters faced a terrlflc challenge in his first year with the Rifles. Coach Waters with great determination led his team to a tremendous victory over Lander to clinch the District Six ti- tle. Recrulfing proved to be instru- mental in Waters success. The biggest factor had to be UNITY. The team had individual superstars, real superstars, but most of all the Rifles were a team. Early in the year, Coach Waters classified senior Bill Weath- ers as "an exceptionally physical player." BilI's teammates tagged him "Physical alll." As the season pfOQl'eSSed Ghd the defel'fT'ilhCTiOh abaunaea, Bill aahtinuea to give 100'is. The Rifles atferea each oth- el' ehCOUfOQefT1eI'1f ih DTCCHCG. they iiyea together ana played fOQefheI'.

Each player gave 100 percent every practice as well as during each game. Opposite page-Oscar Mooney, always on target, holds a Ritle mark ot 59.8 percent shooting accuracy. "Phys" taps in two points.

Dwight G-aobarci was one of the most aggressive players on the Rifle squad this year. Dwight made many significant contribu- tions to the team. He sported a steady aim at the foul line this season, his mark was on target 50 percent of the time. Dwight, along with the rest of the Rifle team, knows that concentration is the name of the game. Coach Waters looked at his first season at USCS with great deter- mination. When Coach Waters commented about the upcoming years, he said, "The outlook for this season for the Rifles is spelled CHANGE. We'll have a new style, a new attitude, and a new begin- ning for all the players." Coach Waters continued by stating his plans to utilize a multiple offen- sive system that will concentrate on the fast break. His defensive strategy was pressure, by capital- izing on the press and the court traps. The Krouse Kount! An index used to measure the competition and the leader. Students con- stantly quoted the Krouse Kount. It proved to be a motivation for all the people experienceing Rl- FLE MANIA. USCS has definitely AR- RIVED. Many people in the upper Piedmont community express en- thusiasm when basketball is men- tioned. Riflemania spread across the state, opponents experienced the vigor and excitement that the Rifles had to offer. Many challeng- ers were forced to make the dreadfully long ride home after being defeated by the rapid fire of the Rifles. Dwight Gabbarz u the defense: his shot was an rr two more points. DWiQht has a :verage of ASB. When the Rftt this degree of ac curacy, it's no .r we are district champions. BS' mwpd The Rifle team had a precision- like ability to maintain their com- posure when it counted most. De- fense is half the game and too many of the Rifles' opponents un- derestimated foo many times the consistent efforts of the awesome Rifle attack. The rivalry between USCS and Wofford College is something to get excited about. This game went into double overtime.

Last year Doug was named to the All District Aca- demic Team. Doug plays superbly from the wing guard position, he contributed 149 points to the USCS team accumulations. Coach Waters commented on Doug's ability and devotion, "Doug is a great shooter and a very smart player." Doug is an all important asset to the Rifle team. The philosophy rendered this year by Coach Jerry Waters proved to be well prepared. The new coach provided his team with sufficient incentive to play their best and not any less. Moti- vation is something that coaches use on and off the playing floor. Coach Waters was capable of in- stilling unity into the players. The results, a winning team composed of men willing to sacrifice the spotlight for the sake of unity. Coach Waters added, "We have a couple of guys who could be averaging 26 or 27 points a game, but l didn't feel like that would help us win basketball games. There were quite a few hurdles to overcome-change of philosophy, and changing the player's minds to get them work- ing together." Once the Rifles sensed the uni- ty they really began to work to- gether. Team spirit increased. More competition was present in the practice sessions. The plyers felt more relaxed about playing hard against their own teammates. This competitiveness provided more perfection. Lightbody had a knack for shooting impres- sively when the points were needed mast and the pressure was on. C 5?3'+f,s.1, -4 4 5 . 4 'X' S I 1 "Kama .wp .M .

The men's golf team combined skill, determi- nation, and concentration to achieve the positive attitude which is essential for a winning team. The USCS golf team competed in several important tournaments this year. These tournaments in- cluded the Dunlop Invitational, the Augusta Invitational, the Edisto Invitational, the Pembroke Invitational, the Belmont-Abbey Classic, and the Spartanburg Methodist College Invitational. In the Dunlop Invitational, the USCS golf team defeated fourteen teams to win this important four- nament. ln a field of twelve teams, USCS came in third in the Augusta Invitational. Fifth place was captured in both the Edisto Invitational and the Pembroke Invitational competing against twelve and fifteen teams respec- tlvely. The winner was again the USCS golf team in the Belmont- Abbey Classic by defeating elev- en teams. A third place finish was achieved by the golf team in the Spartanburg Methodist College Invitational. In the District Six Playoffs, the USCS golf team took a fourth place finish in competition with eight other prominent teams. Tal Henry eyes the ball with concentration after an important swing. . . skill: SSSSFIHGI . . . ln match play, the golf team competed against such teams as Limestone, Erskine, Malone, West- ern Carolina, West Virginia, and Presbyterian. A win-loss record of 62-25 was completed by the men's golt team. The team was fielded by strong men who know their game well. Outstanding players included Rick Murray who was named Most Im- proved Player by golf Coach Tom Owens. Another outstanding player was Phil Jolley who was named to the All-District team. All in all, the USCS men's golf team had a very prosperous and successful year.

As USCS prepared trip to Kansas City and the NAlA playoffs, the fans prepared for their success. This basketball team was praised for their skill, determination, and effort. But the key to it all was their ability to play as a team and not individually. Back in 1967 when the Universi- ty of South Carolina at Spartan- burg was opened, who would have ever thought that the school's basketball team would be going to Kansas City to play in a national tournament? There is no case of an identity problem when a team has suc- cess and Coach Jerry Waters of USCS feels that it has probably helped the school when the Rifles qualified for the NAIA national championship being held at Kemper Arena. The veteran coach is no strang- er to success. He led Middleton Hlgh School of Charleston to the state 4A playoffs in the school's tlrsf year of existence and the Razorbacks won the state crown the second year. USCS, 21-11, reached the na- tlonal tournament by knocking off USC-Ai en, Charleston, and Lander. USCS scored the first ten points of the second half and 13th seeded Henderson State could never recover as the Rifles stunned the Arkansans, 61-50, in the opening round of the NAIA national basketball tournament at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mis- souri. USCS opened up a 47-29 lead with 12:45 left in the game and the Reddies never came any closer than nine points. A picture is worth a thousand words and so it is with this particular shot. . , . z.X ,' ,I A . I I l 1 .ntl-2 V, K. X I - - , l Q . V L x .'r H '-, 'l. - X .'tt?J'i 5 !f X 'YI s X . X . , l, .7 ,.'

USCS hit 47 percent from the floor as opposed to a poor 32 percent performance from Hen- derson State, making its second appearance in three years at the tournament. Waters admitted the Rifles didn't play all that well in the first half, but he said he was still confident that they could win. Henderson State Coach Jerry Klrksey, who won his tournament two years ago when he was the coach at Drury, Missouri, didn't have a lot to say. He credited USCS for playing a tremendous game. "A lot of teams could win this tournament and I thought we were one of them. Perhaps we left our game In the district playoffs." The USCS Rifles brought more than Basketballs and lf:I.,iii .woes to the NAIA national ialiiwfzmentg they also brought books. While other teams were carausv Ing around this mid-western city, the Rifles spent at least three hours a day studying. Coach Wa- ters saw to that. L.A. Hill shoots for two in Kansas City.

Waters sold he was told when he took the USCS job that ln the past, USCS teams had problems wlth players becoming academi- cally lnellgible. "So academics has been a high priority in our program. If these kids leave here without a good education, then they've been cheated." "Academically we've done well the last four months," he said. "All our players have improved their grades and you can see the pride they have when talking about that improvement. Just because we're in a nation- al tournament, I don't want them to lose that. The tournament will be over by the end of the week, but the academics won't be over until they graduate." USCS' bid for the NAIA tourna- ment title ended early with a 72- 60 loss to Hanover, Indiana. The Rlfles got behind early, trail- lng 9-2 before the game was four minutes old. But with Hanover leading 15-8 the Rifles went into their best stretch of the night. A stretch where USCS utilized its quickness and threatened to break the game open. USCS led three times in the sec- ond half, but never by more than one point. The Rifles' last lead was 36-35. Hanover scored eight straight points to take a 7-point lead. USCS pulled to within one at 43-42 only to see Hanover pull away again, this time for good. The Rifles hit 46.7 percent from the field and were perfect on their four trips to the freethrow line. "We are disappointed in the loss, not just because we didn't play well," said Waters, "I think we were tired," vvolers continued. "Playing so late every night drained us. We had to wait two days before we played our first game and then the next night, we played in the last game again. All that waiting took a lot out of us." USCS ended its season with a 22-12 record, the most wins in the schooI's history. The Rifles went to Kansas City to play ball and they did this well. Even their defeat in the sec- ond game did not bring the en' thusiasm felt by USCS' students and fans to a halt. Success comes to those who seek to achieve by giving their best. Therefore, success is spelled: R-l- F-L-E-S! Coach Waters takes advantage ot a time Out to tcllk to his fedm. inns- 6 Q 3...

The team consisted of six ot nine starters from last year that re- turned, two junior college trans- fers, and one freshman starter. Coach Joe Bowman led the Lady Rifles and, according to him, "The new people have definitely helped us," he said, "they have been the key people, with the adjustments that must be made any time you add new people its taken awhile, but they're coming along nicely." Coach Bowman achieved twen- ty wins last year and he estab- llshed even higher goals for the Ladies this year: thirty wins are predicted. The Rifles' record showed an impressive twenty- one wins against fourteen losses by the middle of October. This left three weeks remaining in the season. Coach Bowman said of his losses that, "l'm pretty pleased with our progress so far," he said, "our strongest point has been to play strong competition like Alabama and Winthrop close- ly. A few breaks and they could have beenwins, the talent is there." 1980 has been a successful year for the team and they look forward to the State Tournament and the Regional Tournament to be hosted by USCS. The Volleyball Team waits in defense posi- tion as the other team serves the ball. ,. we N 1' "We're really positive about the State Tournament," Bowman said, "our goal is to win our remaining games and do well at State, which will be the high point of the season for us. The Regionals should also be exciting with good teams and good competition." Women's volleyball is a strenuous sport as shown here by these two Lady Rifles.

Under the direction of Coach Jerry Baker, these women are supporting the statement that USCS has a young, but growing sports program in ef- fect. Last year, Coach Baker put to gether the first women's varsity softball team. This team finished thlrd in the state tournament and compiled a 13-6 win-loss record. This past year, the women's softball team compiled a 20-14 win-loss record. The Lady Rifles finished championship, and defeated Limestone in the USCS Invitational, loslng to Furman, Spartanburg Meth odist, and Winthrop.

Q-43,9 Netters Take to The Court The USCS Men's Tennis team un- der the direction of Coach Jim Newcombe is comprised ot a group of talented men who know the definitions ot words such as skill and concentration. These skill- ful players combine these two es- sential ingredients for winning re- sults. Tennis is a very competitive sport which requires much more individuality among teammates than most team sports. In addi- tion, a great deal of enthusiasm ls needed and the tennis team has plenty ot this among team members. The tennis team's regular sea- son was highlighted by important matches against such teams as Gardner-Webb, Erskine, Wolford, and Winthrop. The tennis team compiled a 3-9 win-loss record against outstanding competition with the opponents. Each player was advantageous for the team and showed good sportsmanship in every match. The team played well together and separately. Some of the players were rec- ognized for their outstanding abili- ty and these deserving men in- cluded Eddy Mosely who received the Hustle Award.

Women's Basketball: The Road to Success 4 'ww-. -yi LQ Women's basketball, under first year coach Andrea Morrison, is an enthusiastic group of women. The Lady Rifles are a growing team, and also a very promising one. These ladies have a good and a positive attitude, and they are will- ing to sacrifice in order to win. Coach Morrison's main philosophy in coaching is teamwork. She says, "The first priority of any player should be the team-individual concerns are second in my book." The Lady Rifles compiled a sea son record of seven wins and thir- teen losses under Coach Morrison. These women are a part of a very promising team who are destined to be very successful in the upcoming seasons. ln the season opener, the Lady Ri ties battled Newberry strongly and defensively to emerge the winner by a score of 6663. Other notable games included another victory for the Lady Rifles by defeating a very competent team from North Georgia. The final score in this game was 8478. Excite ment was also predominant at a game between USCS and Wofford. The Lady Rifles defeated an able Wofford team soundly by a score of 6746. The Lady Rifles are a strong team led by such outstanding players as Jackie Middleton, who received the Leadership Award. The best free throw percentage was gained by Lynn Thomason. Deborah Jack- son performed commendably as the leading rebounder for the Lady Rifles. An essential ingredient to any winning team is a good defense, and Boot Crawford was recognized as the Best Defensive Player.

The Lady Rifles are a growing team which should prove to be even more successful in the fu- ture seasons. These women under the strong leadership of the very competent Coach Andrea Morri- son know enthusiasm, as well as skill, is important to any success- ful team. These women have this enthusiasm and skill. USCS stu- dents and fans are looking for- ward to seeing the success of the Lady Rifles in the future, and we are confident that we will see this success. The Lady Rifles are enthusiastic, and their enthusiasm is shared by USCS students and fans alike. Ev- ery game is an exciting event where the Lady Rifles battle until the last buzzer is sounded, wheth- er they are down by twenty points or are ahead by twenty points. These women play iust as hard and as skillful as they possibly can. They give their best all through a game, and if they lose a game by points, they never lose their determination or zeal- ousness. These women play a game in which they are very competent, and even against their stitfest competition, they nev- er slack off, but continue to give their best.

I Graduation is a sad time for many, yet, at the same time, it is also a new beginning. We hope the future will hold for them all they seek. An ending is more than what it implies, tor the ending can only bring a new be- ginning. With the launch of the space shuttle Columbia, a new begin- nlng in aeronautics is launched. With the end of the Iranian Crisis a new beginning rises for 50 Americans-freedom, and the lu- ture ot our country. With the end of graduation, many people will lace the beginning ot an excit- ing, and hopefully prosperous, fu- ture. With the end of this semes- ter brings the next, which DFOQFSSSSS US toward OUT COITI- mOh QOOIZ, The end of OUI' COI- ISQS Cdfeef. Thefe is the old SCY- ing-"All good things must come to an end." However, we can add on-"The end is merely a new beginning coupled with new .Gnd exciting goals, Gnd DSW Gnd exciting reasons to begin once more to achieve." .nf .,.g 6 5 F i I F ,Eg-gi - 5 5, Z Q 2 E ' Q.-9' , 54.-.:.

At the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg, this was not the case during the past sever- al years. The person who held this responsibility on our campus was a truly unique individual-Mr. Earl Gor- don. Mr. Gordon did all the things that Deans of Students are supposed to do and did them well. If there was a student function or an athletic event, Mr. Gordon came. lt a stu dent was having trouble deciding about a major of career, he would get some sage advice in the Dean's ottice. There was no aca demic or personal problem a stu- dent had that was not important. A truly unique individual: Mr. Earl Gordon.

F sf t i X-Q Beyond all this, Mr. Gordon touched every phase of university lite. He recognized the potential of the University ot South Carolina at Spartanburg to serve this communi- ty and he worked tirelessly to con- vince others of that fact. He was a popular and dynamic instructor in the classroom. He personally assist- ed many students in their eitorts to continue school, to go on to graduate or professional school, and to keep their ties with USCS as alumni. USCS will have other Deans of Stu- dents but there will never be an- other Earl Gordon. His untimely death was a personal tragedy to every student at the university. Earl Gordon personally assisted many stu- dents in their eitorts to continue school. USCS will have other Deans ol Students but there will never be another Earl Gordon. A Celebration of Freedom Church bells peeled joyously from mightly cathedrals and finY churches, sirens waited and low- ered flags were hoisted back to the tops of the staffs as the word spread across a frustrated nation that the 52 American hostages were free at last. People watching the inaugura- tlon of Ronald Reagan as presi- dent broke into cheers and un- corked champagne when the news came that the freedom flights had finally left Tehran after 444 exasperafing days. "We can all drink to this one," Reagan said while Jimmy Carter, the former president, told report- ers upon his arrival back in his home state of Georgia, "I couldn't be happier." Officials at the state and local levels organized celebrations and observances in Florida, Idaho, Maryland, California, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan, and elsewhere. Streets were festooned with fresh yellow ribbons to replace those that had faded during the long ordeal. Many people simply offered prayers of thanksgiving. Three Algerian jets roared through the night skies over the Mlddle East late Tuesday, January 20, and landed to refuel in Ath- ens, carrying the released hos- tages, their belongings and the Algerian diplomats who served as go-betweens in the long and frus- trating negotiations tor the Ameri- cans' freedom. The "Freedom Special" craft flew west, Closing the final chap ter in a 1495-month hostage-hold- lng without precedent in modern diplomatic history.

The moment of triumph-1:20 p.m. EST April 14, 1981-belonged to astronauts John Young and Rob ert Crippen, who inaugerated a rev- olutionary space transportation sys- tem with a mission lasting two days, six and one halt hours. Columbia, two years delayed, a S10 billion question mark, a white and black ship with the American flag on its left side, landed precise ly as scheduled. "You can't believe what a flying machine this isl" Young exulted. "lt's really something special." As he left the shuttle, he looked over the ships iiiesavef thermal-tiles, and punched the air with gusto. Young iffitiflitllfi made history: They were the iifst ever to return from space without having to splashdown in water American-style, or bounce on the ground, as the Russians do it. Young and Crippen moved down the steps of the portable ramp with a bounce in their step and broad smiles on their faces. Young impul- slvely circled the front of the ship on a personal inspection tour. He liked what he saw, jabbed the air in delight and flashed a thumbs up to the recovery crew. "I think we've got a fantastic and remarkable capability here," Young said at a brief welcoming ceremo ny. "We really are not foo far in the human race from going to the stars and Bob and I are mighty proud to have been a part of this revolution." And Crippen, a space veteran at last, said that "as the rookie of the group, I can say that waiting twelve years to get my flight in space was really worth it. l'll go stand in line for another twelve years if that is what it will take, but I don't think it will. I think we're back in the space business to stay." The astronauts came out of a 15 minute communications black-out, the most danger-filled time, with a tension-breaking message for the shuttle team: "Hello Houston, Colum bla here." "You're coming right down the chute," Houston said. "You're com ing right down the track." They were and they stayed exactly on target. Down, down, the Columbia went, dipping first to one side, then an- other. From a hypersonic speed in space it went to supersonic and then to subsonic. Two sonic booms exploded over the Rogers Dry Lake. With the launching of the space shuttle the country is on the edge of a new pioneer spirit. .Q 55+ 'Ja . L b 'Erik-,ip " If Q. 'H-f, ,C X3 c nwtlt-W The ship rolled to a stop on the Rogers Dry Lake runway on the Mo jave Desert, right on the runway centerline. It had been aloft exact- ly 2 days, 6 hours, 20 minutes and 52 seconds. The astronauts had to remain in- side their cockpit for about 45 min- utes while the ship's remaining deadly fuels were cleared out and the hatch opened, the first recov- ery crew came away with a glad report-no problems. Columbia was untested no long er. America was back in space for the rest of the century with a brand new workhorse vehicle to ferry men and cargo in and out of orbit- someday, on a twoa-month sched ule. Columbia came into the atmo- sphere nose up to shift the brunt of the 2,750 degree heat to the tiles on its belly. Free and weightless in space, Columbia now became an 80-ton glider-the biggest ever flown. Astronaut John Young, right, passed the key to Shuttle Columbia to the new commander Joe Engle and Richard Truly. At the speed of sound, Columbia sailed east- ward over the runway, took a llturn to use up speed and energy and came down text- book style-with the nose up. s arding Society's Health On lvlay 15, the Mary Black School of Nuasrrlg held its Pinning and Capping f:.e:'emony at the First Presbyterlart 5Q:5'1f,ifC5'l in Spartanburg.

Wearing a pin or cap from another school of nursing would be like wearing a ring from a school from which you were not a graduate. After they had received their pins and caps, all the graduates recited, in unison, the Nurses' Pledge which states, "l commit myself to do all in my ability to make and continue the highest standards in this my chosen pro- fesslon of nursing. l will persist in enhancing my knowledge and abilities in order to maintain a competent level of practice. l will upheld the Confidentiality of my patients. l will be active and re- sponsible in promoting and sate- guardlng the health and welfare of society."

So It is wlth the lives one meets along llte's way. There are those who see an educatlon and gradu atlon as the termination of tour long years of tedlous hours of studying and dlttlcult examinatlons. Others see lt as a chance to embark on the road that leads to an even greater world ot learning. Some see jobs as ends that wlll produce means. Yet there are others who see opportunities to expand horl zons, lncrease knowledge and better themselves whlle becoming a wellrounded people. There are those students who vlew community In volvement as a frivolous expenditure ot time. However, others see it as a chance to repay society tor the many opportunities it has attorded them through formal educatlon. Some see friends and acquaintances as persons to be used only when a favor is needed or a benefit ls to be derived from the relationship. Yet there are those who cherish friendships for they realize they are the measure of a man's worth. It Is the pessimist who seeks only to gain and never to give of himself. It is the pessimist who sees the sun set. I hope it ls I who sees the sunrise. -ESfl'tel' LYDD Clemmons Edltorln-Chlet Yfvvvvg F 9- ff 1 ,gn 5- . -,,O rf 9"Q ',g,.
