USCS kept an attentive vigi-
lance as her population grew
from 177 in 1967, to its present
student body numbering 2600.
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

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
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

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
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
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-
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

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
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
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-
Above all, the foundation is
committed to serving the Upstate.
One aspect of this service will be
providing seminars and workshops

the tax advantages of gifts to the
University, showing how stocks

to the foundation, and outlining
how bequests for the support of

President Holderman lead a del-
egation of 21 representatives of
the University and state of China.
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
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

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

Our future society depends on the children.
Education is an important and essential part
of their lives.
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
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-

Words from the Wise
The following interview was
compiled from three separate
interviews with Dr. Jane Davis-
son, Dr. Michael Jilling, and
Dr. Jack Turner.
Jane Davisson, a professor

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

of our students are not new

that the decrease from year

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
to hold the job. Employers
need some tangible evalua-
in fact, possess the knowl-
edge and skills to perform
Jillingz-Well, there is some
thing to be said for good
grades. Every student would
rather have an A over a B
over a C. How far one should

difHcult to determine. All stu-
dents face time constraints to

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-
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-
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-
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

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

tion that the grades come
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-
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.

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
Carolanax How strong is the
sense of academic competi
tion that students feel on this
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
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

to learn, demanding sub-
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-
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
"I think they're USCS stu-
dents as well prepared for life
os we can prepare them."
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
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-
the GPR. They
want to say ex-
look-l don 't
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

fall into this trap as a student.
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 . . . "
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!"
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
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

Davisson: The question of

ing information is a miscon-
ception by some people. ln-
terpretation is based upon
facts and the students past

"The question of learning
facts versus interpreting infor-
mation is a misconception by
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-

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
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-
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-
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

Nursing Program Growth
Cited by University
The School of Nursing at the Uni-
versity ot South Carolina at
Spartanburg has a new name this
year, and ground-breaking for its
new building should take place in
the near future.
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

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
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.
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

Dr. Michael Jilling, Associate
Professor of Economics at USCS re-
ceived the Outstanding Teacher
of the Year Award tor the 1980-
81 school year.
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.
"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-

Graduation was an ending-the

The college life had to be adapt-

Students who wait to register

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.

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
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

Lesson in Love
"Bayou ReIics," the current play
of USCS' own Dr. Elizabeth Brown
is a lesson in love.
Since the age of fourteen, Dr.
Brown has had seven of her
plays produced in University and
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,

The Nucleus of a Student Body
The Student Government Associ-
ation has been an active organi-
zation on campus during the past
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

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
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."

Around Town Spartanburg
When USCS students get out ot

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

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

Lunch time is consumed in try-

eat. A wide variety of cuisine in-
cludes ltalian, American, Chinese
and the well known Beacon, fam-

If you are a resident or live
close by you can go to several
different places for nightly enter-

Lobbying for Progressive Legislation

rls. Michaels felt that "as every-
one became more and more suc-
cessful and got other offers, the
show was harder to do."
He was twice nominated for an
Oscar, but never won. Still, Peter
Sellers, who died at 54 after his
thlrd massive coronary, ranks
close to Charlie Chaplin among
the cinema's all-time-great bitter-
sweet comics. His technique was
to take "any given subject to an
illogical conclusion-and then
add my own twist."
When he learned he was dying

McQueen never gave up. "l did

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-

Realizing a Dream
The new Army slogan, be all
that you can be, must have
been written with men like Keith
Kelly in mind.
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

that those some elements were
essential in the military." The fact
that Kelly's father and several of
his uncles were military men also

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-

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-

schedule. "I wanted to go on a

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
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
"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

By the time you receive your
copy of the yearbook, all the
hard work is finished, and the
staff is at rest. For those who
spend a lot of time taking pic-
tures, typing, running errands, writ-
ing copy, making calls, biting
nails, and shed tears, there is a
certain pride that accompanies
the hard work, and the fun.
Countless hours are spent prepar-
ing the book, but it is done with
pride and a sense of accomplish-
ment. Photography is the main
concern of any yearbook staff,
for without pictures, the book
would be nothing more than
black words on white pages.
Copy writing is another major as-
pect, without words the pictures
would have very little meaning. A
yearbook staff is always interest-
ed in finding more people to
help in the progress toward pro-
ducing the best yearbook possi-
ble. lf you would like to see how
a yearbook staff works, just drop

Ronald Reagan won the White
House from President Carter Tues-
day night in a startling landslide
that changed the face of the
American government. 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

Carter 20.8 million, Anderson 2.9

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

The Art of
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

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-
Volunters working mostly on
weekends developed the trail in-
cluding trails, tootbridges, and a
complete outdoor classroom. The
Science faculty contributed signs

Although the Nature Trail is six

realize that a wonderful section
of preserved natural woodland

is a student, another individual
accompanies them. ln other situa-
tions, a seeing eye dog is pro-

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.

person, physical, or mental,
doesn't think, feel, or act like
"normal" people do. "Normal,"
ln this connotation, simply means

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-

ty, in class-not to mention daily.

Cr Fail Miserably . . . "
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
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-

presidency of the South Carolina

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-

Because of his great interest in
nursing, Dr. Keith's involvement
with USCS came early and natu-

pointees to the Board of Directors
of the Carolina Piedmont Founda-
tion, and he has been active on

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.

A Campus Phenomenon
There is a certain phenomenon
that occurs upon the USCS
campus all during the year. This
phenomenon is known as
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.
. 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
Soccer takes great skill and determination
as exhibited by USCS player Craig Bartosh.

The USCS tennis matches are
some of the best in the area. 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.

The first season for soccer, as a
varsity sport, proved to be a
great success. This past fall,
Coach Frank Kohlenstein com-

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

This year we had a spurt of scoring
that led to a four game winning

most braggard effort to record, we
shut them out with a great 18-0 vic-
tory. This year O.J. Chuckwu made

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.

Cross Country is one of the most
demanding lndivldual sports. Many
of our own team members run over
two hours every day, most of
whom belong to the prestigious
2500 Mlle Club. Mike Massey has
been a leader for the others on the
Cross Country team. Dedication
and self-determination have been
two major factors in Mike's success.
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. "Everyone knows the impor-
tance of the topslots," said
Kohlenstein, "But The other fmt? are
just as lmportant."

history. 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-

mental in Waters success. The
biggest factor had to be UNITY.

a new attitude, and a new begin-

Waters continued by stating his
plans to utilize a multiple offen-

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

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
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-
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.

Waters sold he was told when
he took the USCS job that ln the
past, USCS teams had problems
wlth players becoming academi-
"So academics has been a
high priority in our program. If
these kids leave here without a
good education, then they've
"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
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
"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

left three weeks remaining in the

"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."

The Road to Success
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
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
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 Shuttle HCIS LClnCled"
Space shuttle Columbia trium-
phantly passed her first trial by
spacefllght, sailing hpyersonic
through the heat of reentry to a
perfect landing on a sunbaked
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
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
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
"You're coming right down the
chute," Houston said. "You're com

Down, down, the Columbia went,

Mr. Phillip Massey then gave a
presentation of special music,
"You'lI Never Walk Alone."
Mrs. Juanita Patrick, Teaching
Associate, led the presentation of
the graduates. At this time, Assis-

and Ms. Carol Rentz, Sophomore
and Freshman Level Coordinators,
respectively, presented them with
their pins and caps.
Each school of nursing through-
out the U.S. has its own pin and
cap. On the pin is the name of

from another school of nursing
would be like wearing a ring from
a school from which you were

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." The ushers, Susan
Mattlson, Terry Robinette, Dean
Searsy, and Janice Thomas were
chosen from the Freshman class
to serve the 59 graduates.

A loneliness fGllS G5 GnOfn6f QOSS out.
Out Wffn if QOGS fne memory ot WnGf WGS
And fne hopes of what WGS to be.
Plans, faces, joys, smiles, Gnd the newfound love
fnfs loneliness yef is n6V9l' well fOOf6d
As while one rolls out, another fOlf5 in.
ln with if rolls depth, new being Gnd
A new beginning.
With sad loneliness, one wave rolls out to
return to the sea leaving only the paths
ot rolling, tumbling sea treasures.
With supreme joy, another will roll in
washing away the old paths, delivering
New treasures to be discovered.

If ls difficult to tell the difference between CI Sunrise
and a sunset from their appearances alone. 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
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
I hope it ls I who sees the sunrise.
