T " Nor will the benefits of the University and its branches be confined to the sons of the wealthy few. By no means will that be so. Place the facilities of a higher education before the people of the State, make it a reality, make it complete and cheap by a splendid endowment, and youths all over this broad land who catch the inspiration of high native talent . . . will adorn every sphere of life with their brilliant accomplishments and practical usefulness. So it has been in other countries, and so it will be here. " GOVERNOR ORAN M.

CREAMER Associate Editor JERRY R. THOMPSON Supervisor of Yearbooks STEVEN PUMPHREY Photography Supervisor ABOUT THE COVER Two primary factors were taken into considera- tion in designing the cover for the 1983 Cactus Yearbook. First, the cover had to reflect the dynamic spirit of The University during its Centen- nial year. Second, we were looking for a cover that would incorporate the best of both the old and the new University. The cover design includes a watercolor of a stained-glass window found on the third floor of the present Main Building. Encouraging the reader to come in and take a better look at The Universi- ty, the window is especially appropriate as the elements found within the University shield, the longhorn steer and the cactus, are all part of the University ' s past that are still alive today. The Old Main Building blind embossed in the cover ' s border of cactus is more subdued than the water- color, symbolizing a shadow of our past. r 2 Title Page KELLEY BUDD, PEACHES M.

THE CROWN INSTITUTION OF THE 14-MEMBER UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS SYSTEM, UT AUSTIN IS RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE NATION ' S GREAT UNIVERSITIES. IN PROMOTING THE CAUSE OF EDUCATION, THE UNIVERSITY HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DIFFU- SION OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE PROMOTION OF SCHOLARLY IN- QUIRY. PROVIDING PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND EDUCATION IN ALMOST EVERY FIELD, THE UNIVERSITY LEADS ALL INSTITUTIONS IN THE SOUTH IN THE NUMBER OF DOCTORAL DEGREES AWARDED. FOURTEEN C OLLEGES AND SCHOOLS AND 73 ACADEMIC DEPART- MENTS PROPEL THE 300-ACRE CAMPUS THAT ATTRACTS STUDENTS FROM THROUGHOUT TEXAS, THE FIFTY STATES AND MORE THAN 100 FOREIGN COUNTRIES. LIKEWISE, THE SOCIAL CLIMATE OF AUSTIN IS SUCH THAT IT EXPOSES STUDENTS TO A MULTI-COLORED CATALOG OF IDEAS, IDEOLOGIES AND LIFE EXPERIENCES THE SUM TOTAL OF WHICH CAN MAKE HIM A MORE CONSCIOUS PERSON. BEFORE ENTER- ING UPON A LENGTHY DISCOURSE OF THE UNIVERSITY DURING ITS CENTENNIAL YEAR, THE 7983 CACTUS REFLECTS UPON OUR UNIVER- SITY ' S FIRST CENTURY. THE AIM IS TO PROVIDE A FIRM POINT OF REFERENCE FOR UT STUDENTS THAT WILL SERVE AS A SOURCE OF UNIVERSITY FACTS AND REVERIE. Centennial handshakes are extended to Dr. Margaret C. Berry, from whose reference files, many of the entries were extracted and to Ralfh Elder and Lynn Bell of the Barker Texas History Center for their help in locating the photographs and flyers used in the opening section. " Hook-em ' s " are also extended to Barbara Allen, Rhea Burns, Maureen Creamer, Cynthia Darwin, Mike Godwin, Bill Kar- noscak, Jeanne Mixon, Jerry Thompson, Roy Vaughan and Judy Ward for all of their assistance in compiling the Centennial Section. 4 The University ' s First Century " Yes, sir, when these limbs of mine shall totter from the infirmities of age, I want to lean upon my boys, and be enabled, in the fullness of a joyous heart to say, these are Texas made, Texas reared and Texas educated . . . " Representative Pleasant Williams Kittrell Grimes, Walker and Madison Counties, Seventh Legislature, 1857 Sixty years before the cornerstone of the Main University Building was laid, Stephen F. Austin was pleading for the colonization rights of Texas which had originally been granted to his father, Moses Austin. Austin carried a document which he had written entitled " Project for a Constitution For the Republic of Mexico. " Modeled after the Con- stitution of the United States, the document reflected Austin ' s expec- tation that the Mexican government act promptly to establish " schools, academies, and colleges for the education of youth. " While the Mexican government did nothing towards achieving these goals, the Texas Declaration of Independence drafted in 1836 enforced Texas ' commitment to educating its youth. On March 17, 1836, delegates to the Washington, Texas, convention approved the constitution that declared " it shall be the duty of Congress, ... to pro- vide by law a general system of public education. " Working under the impetus of Texas President Mirabeau B. Lamar, the Congress in 1839 approved an act providing for the selection of a site for the permanent seat of government which was to be named Austin. A selection commission, appointed by Lamar, was also delegated the responsibility of partitioning sites for a capitol and a university within the selected area. On April 13, 1839, the commissioners reported that they had chosen a tract of 7,735 acres " adjoining and having a front upon the Colorado River. " Now, whenever the topic of establishing a university w ould come up in Congress, Austin could offer its appointed " College Hill " as an admirable location for the state institution. Blanketed by massive live oaks and elm trees, College Hill remained unoccupied for several years. In 1855, the Texas Know-Nothing Party celebrated its political victories on the hill with a barbecue. General Sam Houston, an early opponent of the University, made a speech during the festivities, making him the first guest speaker on campus. Houston harbored the belief that " the university idea " was " a project favoring the rich at the expense of the poor. " The sentiments of Houston and his like-thinking contemporaries very likely postponed the organization of The University for many years. Modeled after the U.S. Constitution, Austin ' s version contained an education clause. Stephen Austin, son of pioneer. Moses Austin, saw the need for a formal education. The University ' s First Century 5 " I am no advocate of the University system . . . Universities are the ovens to heat up and hatch all manner of vice, immorality and crime. " Senator James Armstrong Jefferson County, Sixth Legislature, An 1858 act of Congress provided for the establishment of the University of Texas but because of the Civil War, the act was never ac- tually implemented. Still, the groundwork for The University had been laid an endowment of $100,000 and grants of land continued to ex- ist in the form of a University trust fund. On Nov. 17, 1875, the Committee on Education issued a mandate in Congress for the establishment of The University which had been so long debated. Mr. J. E. David of Brazos, who was at that time director of the state ' s agricultural and mechanical college, introduced the following resolution: " The legislature shall, as soon as practicable, provide for the establishment of a State University, for the promotion of literature and the arts and sciences . . . The University lands and the proceeds thereof, and all moneys belonging to the University fund, and all grants, donations and appropriations that may hereafter be granted by the State, shall be and remain a permanent fund for the use of the State University. The interest arising from the same shall be annually Mirabeau B.

" In a March 30, 1880 letter to educator Oscar Henry Cooper, Gover- nor Oran M. Roberts expressed his eagerness to actually establish a physical plant for the proposed University: " I am opposed to waiting any longer, " he wrote. " The posterity for whom this bounty was donated forty years ago has come. We of the present generation are the intended beneficiaries, " he said. So effective were the efforts of Governor Roberts in pressing for the opening of The University that Senate Bill 98, " An Act to Establish The University of Texas ' " was passed on Feb. 12, 1881. Referred to the House of Representatives, it passed by a vote of 71 to 7 on March 28. Governor Roberts signed the bill into law on March 30, 1881.

" As to the location of this institution, I don ' t care three groats where it is located. " Rep. John Henry Brown Galveston County, Seventh Legislature, 1857 At their first meeting on Nov. 17, 1881, the Board of Regents ap- propriated College Hill as the site for The University of Texas, shown in the following excerpt from their proceedings: " The grounds set apart many years ago for a University, and known as College Hill, consisting of forty acres, and a magnificent site for a great institution for the increase and diffusion of knowledge, such as the people of Texas require that this University shall be. The executive committee of the board have been authorized to have this University ground surveyed and surrounded by a substantial fence for its protection. " A year later the cornerstone of the Main Building of The University was laid. Colonel Ashbel Smith, first president of the Board of Regents spoke at the laying of the cornerstone, saying, " The Universi- ty of Texas will not merely educate a vastly greater number of students than would otherwise obtain a high education; but there goes with it an advantage that is scarcely possible to overrate. It is a home education for the youth of our State. The youth who gets his educa- tion at home is in accord, in a sympathy, having the strength of an in- stinct, with the people of Texas, his heart beats in all its pulses with the heart of the great mass of his fellow citizens, with a common heart, if I may so speak of the people of Texas. " And so it came to be; The University of Texas was for real. One hundred years later, The University celebrates its Centennial year, a symbol of higher education and opportunity for more than 48,000 students. The next 87 pages outline the first 100 years they are in- tended to serve as a firm point of reference, highlighting the people and events that have painted our University ' s colorful past. Cold, damp weather kept many at home for the November 17. 1882 Old Main cornerstone ceremony. Few guests were attracted to the board and barrel benches. The University ' s First Century 9 CENTENNIAL CENTURY The Constitution of Texas directed the Legislature " to establish, organize and provide for the maintenance of a university of the first class, " and this is what happened next . . . While construction on the Old Main Building began in 1882, the structure was not actually completed until 1899 when the East Wing was added.

" It had hot and cold water and housed 42 students. 12 The University ' s Fjrst Century Tale of Proctor, first UT color bearer 1885 THE CHOOSING OF THE COLORS VENABLE B. PROCTOR, ' 85 It is a far cry from the present University, with its thousands of students, its hosts of alumni and its heritage of memories, to the University, as I knew it in the sessions 1883 to 1885, a University without history, without buildings, without everything, save a well- selected Faculty and a handful of students, who had selected themselves. Athletics were unknown; some sporadic scrimmages with the police, a much-uniformed, also uninformed, military company, and some crude boating on the river, being the gamut of physical endeavor. In the spring of 1885, however, there came among us one, who was heralded as " The only College Curve Pitcher in the State, " and around this asset we framed a baseball team, that rated high in brain power, low in brute force. Southwestern University, known to us as " Georgetown, " challeng- ed, and a game was billed to be played at Georgetown. We hired a special train and on the fateful day there gathered at the I. G.N. depot the team and the faithful, among the latter quite a number of co-eds. As is usual on small and great occasions, a woman spoke first. One of the young ladies insisted that a University must have colors. Up to that time we had overlooked everything except the curve pit- cher, but we were not lacking in common perception, and instantly realized that the young lady was quite right. Two of us, including the writer, volunteered to get the raw material, and hurried to the nearest store that looked ribbon-like. This was a small hole-in-the-wall shop, located on the east side of the Avenue about the middle of the second block above the present H. T.C. passenger station. The train bell was ringing and there was scant time for musing or debate. In tense tones we demanded ribbon, and when asked what color, answered, " anything. " " Anything " was perforce orange and white, for my recollection is distinct that these were the only colors in full bolts. I have always deemed this peculiarly fortunate. At that time I belonged to that lager class of low-browed persons who think red the only col- or. Only the mercy of chance, therefore, saves us from the bar sinister of A. and M. We brought some half dozen bolts of the ribbon and ran back to the train. On the journey to Georgetown the young ladies made the ribbon into badges and all wore these save Yancey Lewis, who had evolved a barbaric scheme of individual adornment by utiliz- ing the remnants. The rest of the story is in a minor key. It showered, the ball got slick, the college curve curved not, our outfielders ran weary miles on a rear perspective, and the colors were christened, as all true colors should be, on a dire and stricken field. I don ' t claim to be the first color-wearer of t he " Varsity " but I am the first color-bearer, for I " toted " the ribbon from the store to the train.

Feb. 18, 1911 HELEN MARK KIRBY Yor c; WOMKX STUDENTS are asked to remember that as far as possible they are to regulate thru own eon- duct, accepting the responsibility of self-government, and helping to es- tablish the success of co-education. They too often feel that since they are only " one of many, ' ' and are among strangers, their identity is in a meas- ure gone and that they are therefore divested of responsibility. At approved, boarding houses young women only are to be accommodated. Callers will be received twice a week, on Saturday and Sunday even- ings, from 8 to 10:30. Young women attending entertain- ments should return to their board- ing houses by twelve o ' clock. Sitting on steps or loitering with escorts is discountenanced by refined society, and should be avoided by Uni- versitv women. Sunday excursions, dining unchap- eroned at hotels or restaurants, and driving in buggies, arc altogether ob- jectionable. For the sake of proper order, as well as for the convenience of locating the women when necessary, they will, when going out, advise the lady of the house the hours of leaving and return- ing. After having made arrangements for the year women are expected, as a matter of simple justice to their landladies, not to change from one boarding house to another during the year, except at the close of each term of three months and that for serious cause. There is another reason for this understanding: The University must at all times have the exact ad- dresses of all students. In any event, women must not make changes with- out consultation with the Dean of Vo- men. HELEN M. KIRBY, KATE E. WHITI :. LULU M. BAILEY. House ( iiiitt c for o in 01.

Dec. 5, 1972 VENDOR CON The Drag vendors should be removed immediate- ly. Not only are they an eyesore with their shabby wares and shabby appearance, but they pose a threat to the legitimately established commerce of the area.

" Michael Hyde Liberal Arts freshman In its Centennial year, The University of Texas is not just a conglomeration of bricks and mortar. Students, statistics in college polls and assorted numbers games, are the heartbeat of the institution. The student population can hardly be labeled as a homogenous group; they are conservative, liberal, active, sedentary, goal-oriented, cynical, or composites that are as diverse as night is from day. And while the middle class mainstream runs deep, the people with Middle Eastern accents or purple hair wade right alongside the DARs and cowboys in Texas ' own environmental sink The University of Texas at Austin.

" Martin Luecke Journalism Junior School spirit was an intangible animal that lived in the dorms, co-ops, greek houses and apartment complexes. It was the impetus behind painting one ' s face orange and white for a televised football game: it walked on to the UT basketball team and it roared for the nation ' s top-ranked college baseball team. Spirit was not confined to the athletic fields. During registration, it encouraged us to check a dollar for a scholar; at mid-term it persuaded an RA to tutor a freshman in calculus and many times it spent sleepless hours with us on late night projects. Abstract as it was, the call of school spirit is what will keep us coming back. 100 Images of 1983 1 WIN SOME LOSE SOME " As an Oklahoman, I would like to remind my fellow students of one thing: 500NERS 28, LONGHORNS 22.

Played in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl, the annual grid match between the two schools goes back to 1900 when the Longhorns outscored the Sooners 28 to 2. The series record stands at 46 wins for UT, 28 for OU and three ties. COLOR ME BURNT ORANGE " Burnt orange runs through my blood. My mother and father were both Longhorns and presently, so is my older brother now so am I.

" John Denson Graduate School In the fall of 1982 UT students voted to reinstate the Students ' Association. A key to appreciating campus politics in the spring of 1983 was observing the curious blend of candidates and cynics and wondering what the potency of the new mixture would be.

LAYING THE GROUNDWORK " I found out who I am and what I want in my future. Only half of my education came in the classroom. UT showed me how to handle the world. " Bradley Saint -Laurent Communications Junior A flawless blue sky with the temperature hovering around 80 degrees it was a UT kind of day and students took to the outdoors to study. According to an institutional study, the fundamental role of The University was " to provide teaching and research programs that would enable undergraduates and graduate students to develop the human resources of our society to their highest potential. " In a practical sense, this meant attending lectures, reading texts, taking notes and studying. Then, there were moments during these mechanical processes when our curiosity would be sparked: when that we wanted to know overshadowed what we had been prescribed to learn. And, it was during times like these that we learned. A SPECIAL ATTACHMENT " Thank you UT for teaching me about: quasars, metaphors, derivatives, Lenin, enthymenes, FIFO, stared decisis, triangulation, fortran, etc. But most of all, thank you for teaching me the funny game called LIFE. " Douglas Burks Business Junior What did you get when you fell in love at UT? Well, one tended to find feeling in the campus routine. At sunrise, the breeze carried the scent of orange azaleas while not far away, two squirrels were competing for attention. At noon, the sun was high, the mall crowded and the clock chimed Happy Birthday for some celebrating student. While most any campus could have provided these essentials it was that special person you knew that made the University setting unique. A FUN TIME " It ' s campy, kicky, nutty, totally loose, totally wild, full of Ging. It ' s marvelous. The University of Texas, yeah! It ' s just plain big. It ' s more fun than humans should be allowed to have. " - Scott R. White Liberal Arts Freshman That Texas has at times been characterized as a social-business state is no revelation. Many a business deal has indeed been settled in the shade of a pecan tree during a ranch barbecue or pool party. While lying out by the pool may not mean that a major stock transaction is in progress, it is well within the guidelines some University students have established for having a relaxing time after class.

LIVE FROM SIXTH STREET " I was one of the beautiful people. " Ray Abelar Business Senior The revitalized epicenter of Austin, Sixth Street catered to the festive diet of University students. In addition to its regular fare of homegrown comedy and music, Sixth Street served students an appealing selection of restaurants, taverns and piano bars. Esther ' s Follies (right) remained a perennial favorite, while newcomers such as Speedy ' s and Sixth Street Live also gained loyal followings. 108 Images of 1983 PLEASANT DIVERSIONS " At first The University scared me, now it ' s home. I find myself hanging out at the Union and eating fajitas for lunch. It ' s great being here for the Centennial! " Suzanne Bremer Law Senior A pair of clowns trailed by a group of ghoulish characters from Kinsolving Dormitory clogged the aisle and blocked the path through the Texas Tavern. It was the annual Texas Union Horror Show on Oct. 30, the first of several Union " all-nighters. " Loud music and various degrees of raucousness gave the Union a carnival atmosphere and the colorific blend of costumes suggested that nobody would remain reverent for very long. There was always plenty to do after hours at UT, to be sure; Union activities and local night spots were only two options. The Humanities Research Center offered a pleasant alternative to the roar of the crowd. The renowned facility housed a comprehensive collection of art, manuscripts, collections and memorabilia, including a rare copy of the Guttenberg Bible. On the east side of campus, the Performing Arts Center and Art Building were constant wells of audio- visual stimuli. While the PAC offered a healthy mix of touring companies, which included The Pirates of Penzance and Evita, the Art Department stimulated gallery patrons by presenting numerous exhibitions. Images of 1983 109 OBTAINING KNOWLEDGE " The University has given me the wonderful opportunity to explore a variety of ways of becoming ' educated. ' In its facilities, programs, faculty and organizations, UT has proven that bigger is indeed better. By examining this broad range of opportunities, I am learning what it means to be ' educated ' . " Ed Schweinfurth Liberal Arts Sophomore From their day-to-day activities, UT students learned that their future would be what they would make of it. ATHLETIC ACHIEVEMENT " With the winning combination of athletics and academics, I can only say I ' m proud and honored to be a part of such a high class university. " - Mark D.

A FAREWELL TO PUSHBALL " On clear sunny days, I walk around campus, marvel at the grandeur of it all, and wonder how I will ever be able to leave it. " Susan Vuono Business Junior Our days at The University exposed us to a world of people, lifestyles, images and ideas. And, just when it seemed that we were really comfortable with the place, it was time to go. 110 Images of 1983 TEXAN RITUALS " The University Centennial has a special meaning for my family: It celebrates my first and my brother ' s last year at UT. Born of German parents who immigrated to Texas in 959, we are the first generation of the Domes family to attend an American university. The Centennial marks my family ' s new American heritage. Christina Domes Liberal Arts freshman The traditions of The University are tied to Texas culture. Because of the diversity of the student population, one might assume that the annual celebrations would have a way of becoming outdated and fall by the wayside. But, as with the value of a rare gem, some University traditions have been faithfully preserved and increased in value. The annual March 2 festivities and Round- Up week stand as symbols of UT ' s collegiate spirit. Celebrated in recognition of Texas ' independence from Mexico, March 2 was a testimonial to the independent spirit of Texas and UT students. Round-Up, just as in its early days, served as a way to gather all facets of University life. While 1983 was witness to a year of change at UT, some things stayed the same. ill A March 2 celebrant observes the spontaneity of the Main Mall festivities. f f " Tl If y years at Texas have given me incentive to strive for the Y _ best, to always improve, and to know all people well. Also, the realization that nothing is impossible. " Justine Eidt Business Senior Looking back at The University four months into our 100th anniversary, it appears that UT has taken the path that will lead to a better institution for our posterity. In 1983 there has been a move among University administrators to promote a more broad-based education focusing on the liberal arts. Quoting from a May, 1983 issue of Texas Monthly, " It ' s no coincidence that the ' liberal ' in liberal arts ' comes from the same root (and sense) as liberate. ' The liberal arts liberate the mind and spirit, and practically speaking, they teach the flexibility to adapt to new situations. " That The University of Texas is working on a new core curriculum aimed at providing a more balanced education for all of its majors, the Centennial year did indeed give us cause to celebrate. Images of 1983 113 FEATURES Edited by Cindy Sobel and Michael Sutler ' Hook ' em Hounds? ' Pig ' s Dead; Dog Gone ET NO SPIRIT OF LEVITY dominate this occasion ... A landmark has passed away. " Dean T. U. Taylor was philosophical as he addressed the huddled mourners, who braved the chill of Jan. 5, 1923 to pay their last respects to an honored member of The University of Texas community. Taylor went on to say, " His loyalty was not measured by the algebraic result of the score, and win or lose, . . . was always hurling defiance at the Varsity ' s enemies and always sending a vote of cheer to brave hearts . . .. " As the afternoon wore on, the gloom or irretrievable loss for UT ' s fallen compadre settled like choking dust over the campus that for nine years had turned to him for inspiration. This tribute was not to a University student or faculty member as one might expect, but rather to Pig Bellmont, a friendly bulldog who roamed the UT campus as an early mascot. Pig meant much to many at UT. He was as much of an everyday part of The University as Brackenridge Dormitory and the Littlefield House. Pig would make his daily rounds greeting students each morn- ing with his tail wagging, waiting for a pat on his head or a scratch behind the ears. At lunch time any small crumb was delightfully ac- cepted and appreciated by Pig so that he could keep up his energy. Pig spent his days delighting the students with pranks and tricks. When the last students returned to their dorms at dusk, Pig also returned to his home to rest under the steps of the University Co-op. Unfortunately, on Jan. 4, 1923, after nine years of loyal service, Pig was accidently run over by a car. He died instantly from the injuries he received. Pig ' s untimely death was grave news to all at UT. The very day that Pig died a proper funeral was arranged. The procession started at the Co-op. Four pallbearers carried Pig ' s casket which was draped in the orange and white of The University he knew and loved. A number of students followed the procession which ended in front of the old Law Building. Pig ' s body was then buried in front of the building with the grave clearly marked to enable students to visit and remember Pig fondly. The epitaph read, " Pig ' s dead, dog gone.

You bake a cake, buy a card and a gift, put a funny button on their shirt that says " Kiss me It ' s my birthday! " and depending on their sex, you can bestow a hug, a kiss or a hand- shake on them. It gets harder when your friend is 100 years old and is not a person, but thousands of people past and present spread out all over the world, and a collection of buildings and monuments, and above all, the physical result of an idea that Texas ' early leaders had a univer- sity for its young minds. You can ' t kiss a university. But you can ' t overlook the result of an idea that was loved so much by so many for so long. The University of Texas ' Centennial celebration in 1983 was the closest you could come to giv- ing The University a big kiss. The Centennial celebration, however, was not an impromptu peck on the cheek of The Universi- ty as it became a centenarian. The Centennial Program Office was established in 1979, with Shirley Bird Perry at its helm as Vice Presi- dent and Coordinator of Centen- nial Programs. " It is clear that we are planning much more than a J ' birthday party, ' " said Perry in an 2 issue of On Campus. " The Centen- | nial Observance is designed to have an enduring impact on The University and its future. " With the next 100 years in mind rather than thoughts of birthday partying, the Board of Regents appointed 175 distinguished persons not currently affiliated with The University to sit on the Centennial Commission. The Commission, which included such luminaries as Lady Bird Johnson, former Gov. John Connally and Vice President George Bush, studied every facet of The University its academic side, its lifestyles to make recommendations on what directions The University should take to improve every one of those facets. The Commission was scheduled to present the long-awaited report on Sept. 15, 1983, exactly 100 years after the first classes were held at UT. Just as the Stars and Stripes symbolizes the United States and evokes salutes as the banner is paraded on the Fourth of July and other national holidays, a symbol of the Centennial seemed a necessity. David Price, coordinator of University Publications, designed a logo to symbolize The University on its 100th anniversary. The logo was a line drawing that depicted the Tower of the Main Building in the center of two concentric circles. The shaft of the Tower and the circles represented the number 100. At the bottom of the Tower shaft was a small silhouette, that of the Old Main Building; a small seed that became the great plant of The University of Texas 100 years later. University officials took great care to make sure that the logo was not used overextensively or trivially. Perhaps memories of red, white and blue fire hydrants during the nation ' s bicentennial were the basis President Peter Flawn and Gov. Mark White enjoy the opening Centennial Ceremonies. of strict regulations against emblazoning the logo on such trivialities as orange toilet seats and beach towels. On the academic front, the Centennial Endowment Program (see pp. 186-7) was established to attract special gifts to The University and to establish endowed faculty positions and scholarship funds. The Centennial Teachers and Scholars Program had the Texas Legislature ' s approval to match donated funds for professorships with money from the Available University Fund. The students also participated in the fundraising. The Student Endowed Centennial Fellow Fund was set up so that students could contribute $1 at preregistration each semester toward bringing a distinguished scholar to UT a gift from students to future students. Usually, it ' s the one who ' s hav- ing the birthday that gets the gift s. But in reverse of that tradition, The University sent one volume of the two-volume Gutenberg Bible, one of UT ' s most valuable treasures, on a tour of 18 Texas cities during the Centennial year. Although the Bible ' s tour around Texas was a grand gesture of goodwill from The University to the state, it was the celebrations on campus that attracted the most attention from the students, facul- ty, staff and the media. Feb. 4, the official opening day of Centennial activities, saw masses of reporters and photographers come out, despite the cold, damp weather, to record the phenomena of hundreds of people gathered on the Main Mall (despite the cold) and the three groups of Longhorn Band members converging on the mall from three remote points on cam- pus. The Longhorn Band brass also played periodic concerts from the observation deck of the Tower. At the opening ceremonies, President Flawn addressed the huge crowd, as did Gov. Mark White, Mayor Carole McClellan and Chair- man of the Board of Regents James Powell. A stray dog enlivened the addresses by loping up to the podium as Gov. White spoke. Flawn ordered the Centennial flag raised by the hands of the ROTC cadets, everyone hooked their horns and the Texas Cowboys fired Smokey the Cannon at high noon. That afternoon, a symposium entitled " The Imperative for Ex- cellence in American Society " was held, its location changed from the LBJ auditorium to the Concert Hall after an overflow crowd became a probability. An enormous crowd did indeed turn out to hear Dr. John Wheeler, UT professor of physics; James A. Michener, best-selling novelist who was at UT to write a book about Texas; Barbara Jordan, professor in the LBJ School of Public Affairs and former U.S. representative; and Dr. Richard Lyman, president of the Rockefeller Foundation. Close at the heels of the opening day ceremonies was the Black Alumni Reunion, Feb. 18-20. The reunion was organized by Almetris Centennial Celebration 117 Thousands of students and exes crowd the Main Mall to celebrate The University ' s opening day of Centennial activities on Feb. 4. 118 Centennial Celebration Caught up in the spirit of the day, University cheerleaders, backed by the Longhorn band, add spirit to March 2 festivities.

An exhibit entitled " An End and A Beginning " included photographs and writing from Duren ' s collection and University records. Speakers at the re- union weekend activities included William Raspberry, syndicated columnist with The Washington Post and State Rep. Wilhelmina Delco. On March 2, another birthday was celebrated, Texas ' 147th, and students came out for the Orange Jackets ' U-Tea Toast, the giant birthday cake and to see the huge Texas flag that Alpha Phi Omega draped across the front of the Main Building. A division of the Longhorn band performs from the Tower. The Spooks lead the March 2 crowd in a round of Hook ' ems. Centennial Celebration 119 To commence March 2 festivities, Dean William Livingston, Jean Caspar, Ernest Harris and Denise Abend give a toast to UT Horns during the Centennial flag raising on the Main Mall. The Centennial was for all UT students, past and present, and the annual Round-Up of former students April 4-10 saw an extra large number of exes make the pilgrimage to Austin for UT ' s Centennial and a special series of reunions for former student leaders. Months of contacting thousands of former student leaders by mail culminated in a weekend of shared memories with old friends and colleagues from the Forty Acres. A grand finale, in true show-biz style, for the weekend was the Round-Up Revue in the Concert Hall. Distinguished alumnus Walter Cronkite served as master of ceremo- nies for the presentation of music, dance, film and photographs depicting 100 years of student life at UT. The Revue concluded with the special musical arrangement commis- sioned by UT for the Centennial. Morton Gould composed and conducted the piece. The end of the 1982-83 academic year was commencement for several thousand seniors and graduate students. For the Centennial commencement, the administration pondered long and hard and finally decided that graduates would leave The University in caps and gowns of traditional UT burnt orange instead of traditional academic black. Robes for those obtaining doctorates were black with bright orange velvet stripes on the front and sleeves. At the evening commencement exercises on May 21, there was not one commence- ment speaker, but four for the Centennial event. Representing the students was Julie Tindall, graduate student in business; Dr. Emmette Redford, Ashbel Smith Professor in the LBJ School for Public Affairs and a 56-year veteran of the UT teaching force, represented the faculty; Lady Bird Johnson, former First L ady, represented the alumni; and President Peter Flawn represented the administration. The new Centennial mace of brass and wood was also carried in the commencement processional for the first time. The Tower was lighted orange from top to bottom, and overhead, the Goodyear Blimp beamed a message of congratulations to the Centennial graduating class. But the Centennial wasn ' t over yet; the anniversary of the first day of classes was still to come. The closing ceremonies for the Centennial promised to be as landmark as the opening. As The University passed the century mark, the new crop of exes were ready to set out and prove to the world with their great feats that only " a university of the first class " could have molded them so well. - by Maureen Creamer ApQ mmbet his ho , d on Texas flag on Mifch 2 120 Centennial Celebration The University ' s crowning Centennial moment commencement exercises.

HhiUa. AT THE CAPITOL Morning jogs are usually calm and quiet, but Sunday, Feb. 6 was quite the contrary. On her routine lap around the Capitol building, Juli Bump, senior advertising ma- jor, was stopped in her tracks. Hundreds of people were congregated at the site of a disaster. " The police wouldn ' t let me by. There was so much confusion and some people told me the Capitol was on fire. They made it seem like a joke. " But it was no joke. The blaze that threatened to destroy the entire 95-year-old structure broke out in Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby ' s apartment at 5:19 a.m. By 8 a.m. the fire had taken its toll. One person had died, six firefighters were injured and three others had been hospitalized. Damage, though severe, had been confined to the east wing. 122 Capitol Fire . -: ' Mayor Carole McClellan contemplates the damage to the Capitol building as firefighter Mark Hair cools off. Firefighters look anxiously up toward the Capitol as they begin to ascend their ladder. Katherine Hobby, the 18-year-old daughter of the lieutenant governor, and three of her Houston friends were spending the night in the second floor apartment after attending the annual Texas Hunter and Jumper Association awards banquet. Hobby and Joan and Jimmy Waterman escaped unharmed with the Capitol security person- nel. Horse trainer Matthew Paul Hansen, 23, died of smoke inhalation, in spite of the at- tempts by officer Joel Quintanilla, 56, to kick down a door that trapped the man. " I got knocked down by the flames but I got right back up again, " Quintanilla said. " It was shooting all over the place like a flamethrower when I gave up. I hated to do it, " he said in an interview from his hospital bed with the Austin American -Statesman. He had been hospitalized for severe burns and smoke inhalation. According to the Austin American- Statesman report, Hobby said Capitol police officer James Mitchell woke her when he pounded on the door. " When I woke up I heard all these popping noises. It sounded like glass was breaking everywhere, " she said. She described the smoke as " so thick, it was like breathing soup. " Firefighters equipped with face masks fought the fire by peeling off the ceiling layers and putting out any fires they un- covered. Officials were certain that without that particular strategy, the fire would quick- ly have spread to every floor. The smoke and flames destroyed the col- lection of 15 photographs of former Texas senators, two oil paintings, antique furniture and a huge crystal chandelier. But thanks to the Fire Department, destruction of ir- replaceable historical items was minimal. " The Fire Department is deserving of a good grade, " said librarian Dorman Winfrey. " They got things off the wall and saved many of the composites. " Through the efforts of 100 firefighers, the historical structure survived the second fire to hit it since Nov. 9, 1881. That fire left the Capitol building a heap of blackened walls and ashes. Another state capitol was built on the same site and opened in May 1888. After the Senate worked without electrici- ty, Gov. Mark White called for the Capitol ' s renovation. The Legislature then passed an appropriations bill that would provide up to $7 million for repairs. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, sponsored a resolution that praised the Austin Fire Department. Doggett said the state " owes a monumental debt of gratitude to those fearless men and women who saved the Capitol this time around.

Computers ULIarh magic The 1982 Merlin could have been hunched over a keyboard, instead of a large, musty tome of in- cantations. Instead of deriving his powers from spells and wands he would use the input output devices on America ' s most evolved technological development computers. Foregoing conjuring up dragons, the nimble-fingered wizards of 1982 would have been able to conjure fantastic color images shooting across a screen and then with a magic touch be able to type commands bringing forth complex equations and answers. These machines have advanced so rapidly since the early 1950s, that if the car industry had kept up " a Rolls-Royce would cost $2.50, get 2 million miles per gallon and weigh half a pound, " according to an advertisement in Cwnputtrworld. The technological revolution hit The University in 1955 when the first digital computer was in- stalled. It was put into operation when, according to Bill Bard, associate director at UT ' s Computa- tion Center, computers were as experimental as nuclear fusion is now. " The computer was an IBM card programmed calculator (CPC). It was leased to the Military Physics Research laboratory, now the Applied Research Lab. It was " used in reduction and analysis of test data and the results were used to evaluate gunnery systems, " said Robert Baker, also an associate director of the Center. Banking on the philosophy that bigger is better, the MRL moved in an IBM 650 in 1955 and removed the CPC to the Chemical Building where it was put to work on non-contract research. These early computers were awkward and difficult to program. The programmer had to learn the machine ' s language to communicate. Modern computers are programmable in many languages such as basic, Fortran and Cobol. In 1982, elementary school children were being taught how to work with computers. Because of the difficult machine instruction language and the relatively slow computing time " the use of the first computers on campus was primarily for research in the physical sciences: mathematics and engineering, " said Baker. 124 Computers on Campus In 1959, the CDC 1604 was the " first computer on campus that was big enough and fast enough to permit instruction and research ap- plications, " Baker said. In the same year, UT ' s computer services began providing complete computation resources to the University community. From these in- auspicious beginnings, UT ' s computation facilities bloomed into an essential part of The University and " one of the most extensive academic computing facilities in the United States " according to the Center ' s introductory pamphlet. To house the advanced equipment, a building was constructed under the East Mall in 1961, creating the Computation Center. Wanting the best equipment available and trying to keep up with demand, UT purchased a new powerful CEC 6600 in 1966. Measuring approximately A feet tall, 12 feet long and five feet wide, the delicate 6600 had to have an artificially cooled, humidity-controlled environ- ment. The 6600 system was augmented and upgraded in 1971 with the addition of a CDC 6400, yet it still did not have the capacity to handle the rapidly growing load of research, computation and student use. In 1979, the 6600 6400 system was replaced with two CDC Cyber 170 750 systems. The system included a total of 8.3 billion characters of disk storage, which if filled to capacity, would fill 103,000 to 138,000 books. Even with these megasystems interconnected throughout campus and terminals located in numerous buildings, students still could not always access the system in time to do assignments, sometimes waiting until 5:30 a.m. to log on. This fact was not surprising since, even with more than $11,195,000 worth of hardware on campus there were more than 41,800 individual student user sub-account numbers, each with a three-letter secret password enabling the user to log on and use the system. Data processing and computer science classes filled to capacity. Ac- cording to a Computation Center pamphlet, " the diversity of com- puting activities crosses 122 different academic departments, research bureaus, and other offices of The University. " The Department of Slavic Languages used a microcomputer to teach vocabulary. Com- puters with graphics capabilities were used to simulate business deal- ings for business students. The Daily Texan staffers used the Digital 61 or 72 video display terminals to write and edit stories. So, write a little program, run it and be finished with your homework in time to meet friends for happy hour. Simple, right? About as simple as tying your shoelaces with your feet. A Data Pro- cessing 310 student of Dr. Laurence Seiford ' s, who was in charge of data processing, used up $1,200 in one program. Instead of punching three keys to abort her program and make the computer stop process- ing it, she just logged off the computer and left. The program was still running. It ran from 6 p.m. until midnight. To use a computer for ex- ecuting programs for one hour cost $200. She used up all the com- puter time and supplies allotted to her for the entire semester. She even went over the total assigned to her class. Her class of more than 285 students was in debt more than $800 and the semester had only begun. Such innocent mistakes could be caused by the dreaded, in- famous " infinite loop " known to so many campus users. It has been said that to become a good horse rider you have to fall off 1,000 times. To become a competent programmer do you have to carry home 1,000 pages of useless output, or sit helpless in front of a computer screen that is leering " error at 125 " while evilly snickering to itself and snidely spreading the news of its latest victim throughout the network of campus computers? by Sandra Willeke Itilizing one of many terminals on campus, a programmer solves a complex trigonometric equation on a computer in the Engineering Science Building. Computers on Campus 125 Twenty-three was the magic number at which University statisticians ar- rived when calculating the average age of the UT student body. For those who fell to the geriatric side of that figure, the law of averages meant more than a battle of numbers . True to the classic student-teacher relationship, the majority of col- lege students nationwide are younger than their instructors. Colleges and universities are, after all, designed for the continuation of the educa- tional process immediately following graduation from high school. Most fresh- men are 17 to 18 years old. At a university with enrollment as large as The University of Texas, however, seeing someone as old or older than the professors sitting in the front row. or walking across the West Mall was a likely possibility. Wandering among the small groups of people gathered at a social in the Texas Union was a 19-year-old journalist me. My age was significant only in the light that those in the groups were aged 23 and up. I was afraid I might not be able to mingle freely amidst the scrutiny of people who might think I was intruding on one of the few events designed exclusively for them. The fears proved groundless, however, for months of practice had made these Universi- ty students relaxed, even cordial, in dealing with their younger classmates. For these and many other older students, the passing thought of returning to school became reality. The standard chronological pattern of " education-work-retirement " had become outdated in the wake of a more competitive job market toughened by double-digit unemployment. Shifts in social mores concerning women on the job also led to the 1982-83 enrollment of more than 14,000 students over the age of 25 at The University of Texas. Out of that total enrollment, approx- imately one -third were undergraduates. It was in the undergraduate business and 126 Students Older Than Average computer science programs that most who had chosen to return to the classroom could be found. Planned career transition was the primary reason most older students returned to academia, said Maralyn Heimlich, coor- dinator of Returning Student Services. Returning to school meant sacrifices, par- ticularly for Carolyn Barram, who gave up her secretarial position with an Alaskan oil firm to pursue a degree in business. She had few regrets, because she considered a degree to mean upward mobility in her chosen field. For some older students, though, the strain of leaving a job, maintaining a family life and making the transition to student life was not so easily handled. The stress was shown by the number of student withdrawals. Dur- ing the fall of 1982 more than 50 percent of the students who left The University of Texas were more than 25 years old. To alleviate the frustrations of readjust- ment, Frances Plotsky, past director of Ser- vices for Returning Students, founded Students Older Than Average in 1971. SOTA provided students 23 and older with a unique opportunity to socialize with other older members of The University communi- ty. SOTA ' s coordinator and hostess, Noelle Hendricks Barren, herself a returning stu- dent, taught special education for 14 years in New York before coming to UT for a degree in information science. Barren ' s experiences at UT left her with the impression that " after the first three weeks, the age seems to disappear. " The only recurring problem she found in dealing with younger classmates came from ones who looked to her for mothering. " You have to let them know that you ' re in the same posi- tion they are. If I offered them some sort of motherly support, they might not develop Older Students Battle the Law of A verages N ' r i Noelle Barren, graduate student and director of SOT A the sense of responsibility that college is supposed to give them. " In the case of Peggy Offen, however, mothering a fellow student was a familiar responsibility. Offen and her daughter, Lydia Lovett, graduated from The University of Texas together in December of 1982, Peggy from the School of Social Work and Lydia from the School of Nursing. The saga of the older student was not altogether one of exasperating struggle. Many of their experiences in the so-called " real world " gave them a new perspective on student life. Civil engineering student Jeff Wethern spent five years as a disc jockey for a country station in Wichita Falls before coming to The University of Texas. Wethern decided an engineering degree would save him from spinning records for the rest of his life. " You have a lot more patience than you did the first time through. There are students walking through halls here thinking, ' Oh God! If I fail, it ' s the end of the world! ' That ' s not the case. " Several SOTA members repeated Wethern ' s sentiments, saying that college degrees would allow them to pursue in- terests they once had to neglect. Valentin Avalos ' duties as an army correspondent in Korea and Japan interrupted his pursuit of a degree in photojournalism. " I decided to earn my degree after I left the army. I ' ve always been interested in photography. " Returning students ranged in age from the slightly older-than-average mark of 23 to a monumental 83. Their presence on campus illustrated the ever-increasing demands of the working world for updated instruction to supplement the traditional college educa- tion. by Michael Sutter Students Older Than Average 127 While crossing campus between classes, I said hello to a girl I had met earlier in the week. She was so friendly then, but now, just a few days later, she gave me one of those you-think-you-know-me-but-you- really-don ' t looks. I was puzzled and a little hurt. Shaking my head and continuing across the South Mall I saw her again, in front of Batts Hall. She spotted me and ran over to chat. Noting my indignation, she asked me why I was upset. Reminding her of the cool manner in which she had just confronted me, she laughed and explained to me that I had just met her twin or " mirror image " as she called her. I had roomed at UT with a twin since 1982, yet in my experiences with her we never had such a mix-up. The reason I had never mistaken my roommate for her twin is she did not have a twin sister. Jan Davis, a senior nursing major from Sugarland had a twin brother. Her brother Jordy was a finance major, one of the few significant differences between the two. Otherwise, they both shared similar likes and dislikes and felt closer to each other than they did to their two brothers. " I feel closer to Jordy than to the other kids as we ' re at the same level in school, we ' ll graduate together and we are always seated next to each other at the table. My parents think of us as a unit ' the twins, ' " Jan said. Jordy shared Jan ' s feelings concerning the closeness involved in be- ing a twin and added, " I ' m glad Jan ' s a girl so I can talk to her about girl problems; those type of problems she ' d understand. " Jordy believed that looking after Jan was a responsibility that was delegated to him. He was born first and liked to fill the role of the domineering older brother while Jan was the " helpless " little sister. Also pleased that Jordy was older, Jan ' s biggest complaint about being a twin stemmed from their being born on the same day. " I hate sharing my birthday, having only one cake and vying for attention while opening presents, " Jan said. Both Jan and Jordy always wanted to be Longhorns and never con- sidered attending different universities. They enjoyed each other ' s company and believed that they would end up in the same city after graduation. Jordy summed up his feelings, " We ' ll probably keep get- ting closer when we are out of school than we are now. " While Jan believed that she would have hated having a female twin, Vicki and Debbie Forman, juniors from Miami Beach, Florida, would not have had it any other way. " We have mental telepathy feeling what each other is feeling, " said Debbie. Vicki also believed they were sensitive to each other ' s emotions, not only just feeling the same way but also knowing what the other was thinking. The Formans dressed differently, but to look at them was more than confusing. After studying themselves closely for years, the For- man twins had detected even the slightest differences between them. Vicki told of the minute differences she and her sister had discovered. " My face is rounder, my nose is flatter, and straighter, my eyebrows are thicker, my forehead is higher, my teeth are squarer and I have a dimple, " she said. These minuscule variations were invisible to most people and gave UT students and professors double trouble when they tried to tell the Formans apart. Sharing an apartment and similar interests kept the Formans close. Both Debbie and Vicki were in the College of Business Administra- tion and had taken many classes together. " We don ' t sit together in classes so we won ' t confuse the teacher, " Vicki said. The UT gymnastics team also played a large part in the Formans ' UT experience. As team members they spent time each day working Jan and Jordy Davis, Keith and Craig Cohn, and Debbie and Vicki Forman. 128 Twins out and believed gymnastics was a great sport for them because " you compete against yourself rather than against each other, " Debbie said. Competition did arise concerning grades between the Formans. With their IQs only one point apart, the Formans were evenly matched. Furthermore, they had scored exactly the same on their American College Test and their Scholastic Aptitude Test. " On a test we miss the same questions and teachers have thought we were cheating even though we sit on different sides of the room, " Vicki said. Debbie felt part of this telepathy stemmed from the fact that she considered herself and her twin to be " best friends. " Vicki added, " For girls it is harder to get really close to us as we have each other. " Yet, many people have gotten close to the Formans at UT. " We have a wide variety of friends including athletes, people from the business school and sisters in the sorority, " said Debbie. " Sometimes when I meet someone Debbie has met people look at me strange, " said Vicki. " They think I ' ve changed clothes. " As twins, Vicki and Debbie also had their share of confusion. " Dur- ing the summer we shared a job at a hotel in Miami Beach. We fooled everyone for an entire summer, " Debbie said. After each day the twins would brief each other on the day ' s events and the people to know and recognize. They felt confident until one day Debbie squirmed a bit when her boss told her to sharpen some pencils like she had yester- day and Vicki had not told her where the sharpener was located. Aside from this minor confusion, Vicki and Debbie did not have any real problems at The University. Yet, two other twins, freshmen Craig and Keith Cohn certainly had. During pre-registration Keith ac- cidently filled in Craig ' s social security number which was only one digit from his own. This error caused the computer to give Craig all of Keith ' s business classes which he certainly did not want since he was a biology major. Keith ended up with a blank fee bill. The Cohns, like the Davises, were really more alike than their ma- jors revealed. They shared a condominium, drove the same car and associated with most of the same people. " Even if Keith met the per- son first, he ' ll become my friend, " said Craig. As far as dating was concerned, Keith said they generally liked dif- ferent girls. " A couple of times we liked the same girl and had a big argument over who would ask her out first, " Keith said. Disagreements did emerge between the two, however. " Fighting brings us closer, " Keith said. The Cohns dressed in a similar fashion sporting polo shirts and jeans, disagreeing over who got to wear what first. " If I dress too similar to Keith he ' ll want to change, " Craig said. Even though they dressed nearly the same, the Cohns had never at- tempted to switch roles. Both had considered the possibility with Keith having a special purpose for the switch in mind. " I ' d want Craig to go to line up at my fraternity house in my place, " said Keith. The switch might have been pulled off since the twins were mistakenly identified each day while on campus. This was a problem according to Keith. " People confuse me with Craig and I don ' t know who these strangers are that are talking to me. " Talking to friends who were also twins helped Keith and Craig relate to the highs and lows of life as a twin. " We tend to talk to other twins about different things like how we feel when our twin is hurting, how we are alike and different and how twins get closer to others faster, " Craig said. Both Craig and Keith expressed a desire to have twins of their own some day. Because of the joys and discomforts of being his brother ' s mirror-image, Craig believed that he would be able to relate well to his own set of look-alikes. For the twins who attended The University of Texas in 1983, it appeared that college was just another step on an in- teresting mixed-u p life ahead. by Cindy Sobel Craig and Keith Cohn Twins 129 Six a.m. and the alarm sounds. A large lump under the quilt stirs. Reluctantly, a fumbling hand is extended to terminate the buzz. It ' s morning time to lace up the old Nikes, run out the door and brave the cold air. Donning a Sony Walkman, the runner jogs with Olivia Newton- John singing " Let ' s Get Physical " into both ears. For scores of Univer- sity students, getting physical was tops on their list of priorities. " The most important thing in the world is a healthy body, " said Danny Magnus, a sophomore public relations major and former Golden Glove title boxer. " I learned to be a health nut from my former boxing coach. He was 65 years old and going on 20. " For many students, a rigorous work-out included numerous and diverse activities. " I go to jazzercise four times a week, play racquetball whenever I can, ride my bicycle to campus and run a minimum of three miles a day, " said Mary Yarotsky, senior finance major, noting that if she missed a day of exercise, " I feel unsatisfied with myself and I ' ll make it up the next day. " Fitting exercise into busy schedules was a problem for some, but Mark Wood, senior international business major, offered a solution. " It takes me three minutes to do 35 push-ups every morning, and you get the same effects as rushing off to the health spas three times a week, " he said, adding that when time allowed, he played tennis. Although running was not a new sport it continued to have new practitioners. In 1983, approximately 16,000 runners participated in Austin ' s Capitol 10,000, the nation ' s second largest 10,000-meter race. " If this race is any example, the running craze is far from dead, " said Donya Andrews, director of the annual event. Another popular form of exercise was dance, including the newest fad of the ' 80s jazzercise. Suzie Finger, a junior organizational com- munication major, gave one reason for the popularity of jazzercise. " It ' s a fun way to exercise. You listen to the music and forget what you ' re doing. Before you know it, you ' re finished, " she said. For some, working out took on the ambience of a social outing. Tennis and running dates were common. Newsweek magazine even called health clubs the new version of singles bars. Elaborate running gear was not a major concern for all UT exercise fanatics. " All you really need are good running shoes, " said Danny Magnus. Mark Wood said that dressing for the occasion boosted one ' s ego. " Clothing is mainly important psychologically, " he said, ad- ding that " being healthy gives me a feeling of confidence. When you look good and feel good, you are good. " by Sheryl Lilly II UT Gets Physical I 130 UT Gets Physical. ' Food for Thought In 1983 many Longhorns fueled their athletic and intellectual endeavors with healthier diets. " Educated people are concerned with health and students tend to be trendy as well, " said Karen Saodeh, the manager of the Austin Whole Foods Market. The Whole Foods Market was a veritable mecca for the health food enthusiast. One could buy organically grown papaya and persimmons, or perhaps peruse the book section, which offered titles such as The Vegetarian Baby, The Vitamin Bible and The Spirulena Cookbook. Some students opted for vegetarian diets and other more exotic regimes such as the macrobiotic diet, in which one tried to achieve a balance between " yin " and " yang " foods, with fruits and vegetables generally being more " yin " than " yang " animal products. However, employee David Kaplan claimed that " health food munchies are popular among students. Carob-covered raisins, yogurt malt balls and trail mix are a typical selection, " he said. The typical students ' penchant for healthful sweets accounted for the overwhelming popularity of the " I Can ' t Believe It ' s Yogurt " Shop located on Guadalupe. Manager Sherrie Duncan described her typical customer as a " junk food junkie who wants something sweet which is good for them, too. " Frozen yogurt was a delicious, healthful sweet which had considerably fewer calories than ice cream. However, " no one hesitates to heap on high-cal toppings such as M Ms and Oreo cookie crumbs, " she said. In fact, Sherrie stated that there were a large amount of customers who came two or three times daily before and after class or for a study break. " In that amount, the frozen yogurt amounts to quite a lot of calories, " she said. The popularity of these health food haunts should not lead one to believe that UT students shunned pizza, Twinkies, beer and other junk food staples. Dorm lobbies bustled with pizza deliveries at all hours. Consequently, a " battle of the bulge " was waged by many. The Cambridge Diet swept the campus, exchanging meals for milkshakes. Three shakes a day made from Cambridge mixes of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry flavoring blended with ice comprised the diet. Another dieter ' s dream which proved controversial was starch blockers which claimed to block the digestion of starchy foods such as pasta, bread and potato chips. These starch blockers excited the interest of many weight-conscious students. However, they were removed from the shelves under an FDA ruling and were pending classification as a drug. Be it health food or sugary junk food students loved to eat. Sophomore Tracy Killin summed up the typical Longhorn ' s attitude " I love food! " by Kendall Curlee Food for Thought 131 P WEB PLAY In 1983, it appeared as if machines were going to take us over. Video games made a full-scale attack on our culture, our minds and, most importantly, our wallets. What ' s more, there was no escaping them, not even at The University. Supposedly serious and dedicated students spent endless hours in the Union recreation room or at ar- cades near campus, devoting their brains and quarters to watch little figures chasing each other across a cathode-ray tube. Video games were a relatively new trend from the early ' 70s. Since the late ' 70s they have become a multi-billion dollar cultural phenomenon. Still, it is difficult to remember how video addicts used to spend their spare time. When the first game, Pong, hit U.S. stores in 1973, few could have guessed video games would become so popular. Pong was basically a paddle game played on a black-and-white TV screen; while it was mildly entertaining, it became passe after only a few games. Video games weren ' t about to die off so quickly, however. The machines derived their power from the computer or, more specifically, the microchip. As that technology progressed the potential for com- plex new games was realized. In 1979 Space Invaders infiltrated American arcades and became the first mass-produced video game. Video games steadily grew into a major industry as manufacturers brought out noisier and flashier games designed to lure our quarters into the coin slots. The industry ' s astounding success was apparent in their annual profit of $5 billion. At UT, students had a varied choice of arcades. The Texas Union filled a whole room with video games in the Recreation Center. Dobie Mall had Power Play arcade, while the Drag featured Muther ' s arcade, restaurant and bar. Both off-campus arcades attracted a diverse crowd, from college students to workers and young children. Excluding some females, most people who came into an arcade did not plan to spend just one quarter on a single video game. Wes Hiatt, a Muther ' s bartender, observed player ' s habits. " Everybody averages at least $4 or $5 every time they come. I ' ve seen some people spend $25 to $35 in one visit, " Hiatt said. An average visit was $5 for most video game fans. Freshman business student Duncan Rhodes described that as " a reasonable amount to waste. " Freshman Khanh Bui was able to rationalize the expense of his video game habit. " An album costs $6 to $7, " Bui said. " Just $5 a week is not that much to spend. " Most players chose a favorite game and stuck to it until they had mastered it. An average fix was 15 minutes, but Hiatt said some people played Defender and Robotron as much as five hours non-stop. College students didn ' t seem as addicted to video games as teenagers. Senior Serge Goldberg, an employee of Power Play, admit- ted they were a waste of money, but said: " It seems that a lot of people who are making accusations about video games corrupting youth are probably the people who aren ' t prepared for any kind of change. " A common charge against video games was that the majority were of the " shoot-em up " variety in which players scored by annihilating alien creatures. Perhaps the best feature of the video game was it was an outlet for frustration, aggression and simply letting off steam. Students gave various reasons for their video habits, but they all were concerned with escaping from reality and punching extra energy into a neutral machine. " It ' s a way to get your mind off everything, " Rhodes said. You ' re able to get absorbed in a game and just forget about everything. " The challenge of mastering a game appealed to Shute: " I ' m very competition-oriented. When I do well, it lets me feel like I ' ve con- quered a machine, at least for awhile. " Of course, nobody has ever conquered a video game. The games have to make money, so they ' re programmed for profit. But like a prizefighter who ' s been beaten senseless, video addicts don ' t know when to quit. As the microchip ' s potential for storing information increases, the games will incorporate storylines and background videotapes. Weary video addicts, fear not! You have only your savings account to lose. In their attempt to conquer our minds and pocketbooks, the video game industry has won. by Brian Zabcik Muther ' s on the drag is a favorite hangout for UT video fanatics.

Video Games 133 As a new student at The University, you probably heard a lot about all " the places " that students had adopted to replace hometown favorite hangouts like Keller ' s Drive-In, J. T. McCord ' s, Pizza Inn and Little Mexico. Invariably, you heard of the UT hang-outs such as Jorge ' s, Scholz ' s Beer Garten, the Filling Station and Beans. But ultimately, you were drawn toward that cen- tral area that every university seems to have; that place of intrigue where all walks of life gathered. At The University of Texas, that mecca of activity was the Drag. I remember my first days at The University, and my first experience of the Drag. During orientation, I asked my friend, Sharon, a student at UT, to show me around some of the student hang-outs in Austin the places they omitted from the itinerary on the " welcome to UT " tours. When Sharon met me, one of the first things she said was, " Oh, I have to take you to the Drag. " The Drag. What the heck was a Drag? It sounded like a place where high schoolers raced pickup trucks or souped-up Chevys with oversized tires and hydraulic shocks. I decided that I would just have to see this place for myself. Sharon told me that the best way to see the Drag was to walk down the street, but since we did not have much time we would drive down it instead. I was from Dallas and there people did not walk down streets. Either you drove or rode with someone. I was to find out that such was not the case in Austin. When we drove down the strip, I realized that " the Drag " was actually Guadalupe Street from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to about 29th Street which ex- plained why I could never find it on a map! Since it was getting dark, I saw only a few things people milling around and places like the Varsity Theatre and Bevo ' s Bookstore which displayed a huge longhorn steer over the doorway. Sharon warned me about " dragworms. " These, she explained, were " those grubby looking wanderers roaming around the street. " The " street people, " as I was told, either lived on the street itself or in nearby alleys; some even slept in the doorway of the Baptist church located on the Drag. Many were alcoholics who begged for money to buy cigarettes or liquor. Others were enter- tainers who played flutes, guitars or bongos in hopes that passersby would drop money into their coffee cans. And still others seemed to be political activists left over from the ' 60s who felt that law and society were oppressive, and preferred to live " free " lives. The next time I saw the Drag was at the beginning of the fall semester. I confronted the myriad of students buying books at the University Co-Op. It was here that I first ex- perienced that feeling of being herded like cattle. I ventured down to the textbook level and made my selections. After braving the mass hysteria of purchasing books, I wandered for a while in the store. I was amazed to discover the variety of objects that the Co-Op had invented and stamped with the University emblem or Bevo ' s likeness. There was everything from the usual notebooks, pencils and shirts to drink- ing glasses, radios, telephones, blankets, baby bloomers and even toilet seat covers! After depositing my books on my bedroom floor, I wandered back to the Drag to check out some of the other sites. I notic- ed a huge building that stood taller than the tower Dobie Center. The bottom two levels were a shopping mall with restaurants and stores, while the upper 27 floors were private dorm rooms. There were other places Passersby eye handcrafted jewelry and leather goods marketed by the vendors at the Drag ' s open air Renaissance Market, located at 23rd and Guadalupe. 134 Cruisin ' the Drag to live on the Drag also, including Newman Hall for women and the Goodall-Wooten Dormitory for men. The " Woo, " according to Sharon, was a pretty wild place, " housing mostly freshman fraternity men who liked to party. The " Woo " men had a reputation for surprising passersby with bottles or water balloons aimed from their balconies. The Drag also featured a variety of eating establishments. In addition to the conven- tional franchises such as McDonald ' s, Whataburger, Burger King, Jack-in-the-Box and Taco Bell, there was the G. M. Steakhouse. From outward appearances it did not look like an appetizing place to eat. Inside it resembled my high school cafeteria with old formica tables and worn vinyl chairs. However, the service was fast and friendly, prices reasonable, and the steaks delicious. Reflecting the video game craze that had invaded area malls, pubs, pizza places and grocery stores, the Drag offered the Hole in the Wall Arcade and Restaurant. Although it was little more than a hole in the wall, the restaurant drew a sizable crowd. Students escaped to the casual atmosphere of the Hole to play the Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger video games. In front of the Co-Op, vendors sold such delicacies as eggrolls, sandwiches, barbecue and cookies. Buying food from a street ven- dor did not appear to be the healthiest habit to form, but students rushing from class to class found these outlets to be convenient and not unappetizing. Clothing stores were also popular along UT ' s mainstreet. For many UT students, Brittons and Ms. Brittons offered a good selection of the latest in preppy attire. Brit- tons first opened in 1967 as a men ' s clothing store for the more conservative student. In August 1979, Ms. Brittons opened in response to the popularity of the small women ' s section located in the rear of Brit- tons. Apparently preppy was " in " at Brittons long before it became a national craze. Not far from Brittons, a sign sporting a large pair of lips with a finger before them as if to say, " Shh, " decorated the entrance of The Bazaar. The place was amazing! It had everything from lingerie that looked like it came from Fredricks of Hollywood to vin- tage clothing that my mother might have worn in the 1950s. They also had an assort- ment of glasses that glittered, feathers, hair tints and costume jewelry that would even make Sammy Davis Jr. take a second look. For shoppers who wanted to impress or delight friends, The Cadeau and Special Ef- fects were different types of gift shops. They carried everything from posters and cards to glassware, kitchen utensils and candy for the man or woman who had everything. For the dreamers, unicorn and rainbow knick- knacks were plentiful. Cookies Confectionary, another store in the Brittons chain, opened in June 1982. They carried other interesting gift ideas with personalized items as well as popcorn, croissants and imported teas and coffees. Although the stores had a variety of gifts, another type of " store " had an even more in- teresting display of goods. At 23rd Street and Guadalupe, there was a fair-like atmosphere; this was the People ' s Renaissance Market. It was created in 1972 by a city election, as a place to allow artists and craftsmen to sell their goods. It included everything from paintings and leather goods to hand-crafted jewelry, pottery, wind chimes, t shirts and hand puppets. So that was the Drag. A section of Guadalupe from 19th (MLK) to 29th Street, stretching over blocks of theaters, arcades, novelty shops, drugstores, dorms and restaurants. The mid-morning traffic resembled a carnival atmosphere with cars, pedestrians, bicycles and even rollerskaters. The noises of people playing their in- struments, vendors calling out and preachers spreading the " good news " blended into a pleasant hum. It was hard to believe that at the turn of the century, this buzzing center was merely a dirt road between the UT cam- pus and a grocery store, lined by boarding houses and a building containing McFad- den ' s Drugstore, Wukosch ' s soda fountain and Wielbacher ' s " eating house. " My experience of the Drag was probably similar to that of most newcomers to the UT area. The Drag had become a part of my everyday life and the novelty had worn off. But in the fall, my sister, a future UT stu- dent, visited Austin. I told her about all the places to check out, including the Drag. " The Drag, " she said, " what ' s that?

Many UT graduates and former students went on to become prominent in their careers and The University shared the rewards of their successes in notoriety, respectability and publicity. The Ex-Students ' Association, established in 1885, just two years after UT was opened, has kept a close watch on UT exes. In 1958, the Association decided to honor its progeny by conceiving the Distinguished Alumni Awards. The coveted DAAs were bestowed to only four exes each year from among the thousands of possible reci- pients. The Association imposed a limit of four awards annually in the mid ' 70s to preserve the prestige of the DAAs. The first four recipients were Ramon Beteta, a former director general of Novedades, the na- tional newspaper of Mexico; Sam Rayburn, former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives; Walter Prescott Webb, distinguished pro- fessor of history at UT and Robert B. Anderson, former U.S. secretary of the treasury. To be considered for a DAA, a person had to meet the criteria set down by the Ex-Students ' Association. Nominees had to have excelled in their fields and received previous recognition from contemporaries. Likewise, continuing interest in The University of Texas and the Ex- Students ' Association had to be demonstrated by support and con- tributions to one or more programs which benefited The University. Finally, nominees had to recognize the importance of an education at The University, reflect that recognition and demonstrate pride and loyalty to their alma mater. The list of Distinguished Alumni included such luminaries as Walter Cronkite, Tom Landry, Fess Parker, John Conally and Lloyd Benson. Eleven women received DAAs including Lady Bird Johnson; Kathryn Crosby; author and editor Margaret Cousins; and columnist and former press secretary to Lady Bird Johnson, Liz Carpenter. A 136 Famous Former Students Recipients of the 1982 awards were Thomas Barrow, vice chairman of Standard Oil, who finished The University ' s 5-year degree plan in petroleum engineering in 2! 2 years; Preston Shirley, a Galveston at- torney and former Cactus section editor, whose first job as a soda jerk helped him pay his way through college; Joe Kilgore, Austin attorney, who along with his entire class, flunked first grade; and Robert " Outstanding Alumni had to recognize the importance of an education at The University, reflect that recognition and demonstrate pride and loyalty to their alma mater.

A visit with Dr. Berry in her home revealed a more casual person a soft-spoken, well-versed, modest woman with a deep-rooted love of the University. Berry ' s tenure with The University goes back to 1937, when she graduated with honors in history. A diligent student, she earned her master ' s degree from Columbia in 1943. Berry concluded her formal education by attaining a doctoral degree from Columbia in 1965. Over the years, Berry played an active role in guiding students at the University of Texas. Serving as Associate Dean of Women from 1962- 68 and later both Assistant and Associate Dean of Students, she gained the respect and admiration of the UT faculty and student body. Likewise, Berry taught a General Studies course titled " Self and the Campus Society. " The class compelled students to broaden their understanding of the University of Texas and how it worked. By bringing in lecturers from various leadership levels in the UT power structure, the class let students discover who these people were and how they worked for and with UT. Berry believed that her class was a valuable way for students to understand the University power struc- ture and the people responsible for its direction. Berry was also visible in university life outside the classroom. She served as an educational consultant to the Interfraternity Research and Advisory Council from 1975-78. " I attended their annual meetings and made a report on the current campus culture, which was published in the ' Proceedings ' of the council, " she said. In addition , she served as administrative adviser to five campus organizations, including the Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity and Cisco ' s Kids, a group dedicated to promoting " UTism. " In the words of one Cisco Kid, " Margaret Berry is to the University what Mother Goose is to fairy tales. " An all around enthusiast, she served as a judge for Greek Sing- Song, beauty contests, debates, cheerleading contests and the Austin Aqua Festival Parade. A life member of UT ' s Ex-Students ' Association and a charter member of the Foundation for Texas Excellence, Berry often ad- dressed campus, civil and professional organizations. " I wish she could talk to everyone like she talked to us. Everyone should know the true meanings behind UT, " said Suzie Finger, junior communications ma- jor, following a lecture Berry delivered to the Student Involvement Committee ' s centennial group. After years of research, Berry fulfilled her long-time desire to write a book. Published in 1975, UT Austin Traditions and Nostalgia preceeded other writings about The University and its colorful past in- cluding her favorite, The University of Texas: A Pictorial Account, published in 1980. " I lived that while I was doing it, " she said, smiling. A perfectionist, Berry wanted to include all aspects of UT history in her book. " I spent so much time trying to find a picture of a panty raid. I knew there had to be many taken, but no one seemed to have one, " she said, an impish grin marking her face. Berry described history as " surges of change. " " A big surge is taking place now under the leadership of Dr. Flawn, " Berry said, adding, " but good things happen in every administration. " " As for students, there has not been much change, but motivation has always been high. Fashions have changed . . . but the desire to achieve, make friends and be accepted are the same, " she explained, pushing her silvering hair from her face. " Students today are more at ease, more sophisticated, but we can attribute all these changes to the change in society itself, " she said. Of her many hobbies, music, art and reading rank highly. " Writing is my favorite, though, " she confessed, her eyes gleaming. And of course, her favorite subject was the history of UT. " UT was designed to be a university of the first class. Our founding fathers were kind enough not to define that for us, leaving it to our imagination. " Ac- cording to Berry, UT would never hit that goal. " You don ' t ever really arrive at excellence, you just keep striving toward it. There ' s always something needing to be done. " Christi Robertson, a 1982 graduate of The University of Texas and assistant for club activities at the Ex-Students ' Center, gave a typical Margaret Berry critique: " She gives a lot of time and is always willing to help anyone. She ' s a neat lady. " Margaret Berry is far from being finished. Based on her philosophy and another planned book, she concluded, " Goals are infinity. I don ' t think I ' ve met any. I just hope always to improve. There are so many things to do. " by Sheryl Lilly and Jeff Siptak Margaret Berry 139 HAVE YOU HEARD THE ONE ABOUT THE AGGIES AND THE HORNS? THE RIVALRY IT ' S NO JOKE. WAR Tension mounts as a faithful Longhorn and a rival Aggie meet face to face in verbal combat on the steps of the Capitol prior to the " real battle. " It was wild that night at the State Capitol. Lots of people were there yelling, fighting, drinking and just having a good ol ' time. The legislature wasn ' t even in session. Something more than politics was behind the ruckus. A M and Texas were playing their annual Thanksgiving Day football game the next day, and the Aggies were hav- ing a midnight yell practice on the Capitol steps. They were doing all sorts of typical Aggie things like crouching down on major yells (what they call " humping it " ), and chanting " BEAT THE HELL OUTTA 1 TU! " Most of the Aggies there were members of the Corps, and looked a little strange in civilian clothes. There ' s something about that stylish crewcut the cadets have been wearing for the past 100 years or so that just doesn ' t look right without a uniform. A number of Texas students turned out too, just to pester the Aggies and make sure they didn ' t have the Capitol to themselves. The Texas crowd was a little more varied. Frater- nity boys on their umpteenth can of beer were there as well as new-wave rockers. The Texas Cowboys also brought and fired Smokey the Cannon, which irritated the peo- ple from College Station. The cadets finally resorted to their superb military tactics and charged the cannon. In the interests of peace and harmony (and at the insistence of the determined-to-keep-order cops), the Cow- boys hauled Smokey away. The A M and Texas squads first met each other in an 1894 football game, and since then a passionate rivalry with a colorful history has developed between them. 1982 was the latest installment of the feud. However, interest at UT was subdued. Texas had discontinued having a regularly scheduled pre-game bonfire several years ago and since then there had been no real focus on campus. In 1982, Alpha Phi Omega sponsored two fundraising booths on the West Mall to build up spirit, but according to workers at the booths business had been slow. A pep rally at Palmer Auditorium the night before the game likewise attracted on- ly a few hundred fans. Junior Jim Kottwitz, one of the students who did turn out for the rally, had an explanation for the lack of in- terest in the game. " So many students go home for Thanksgiving, " Kottwitz said, " that it doesn ' t mean that much to them. " Another factor affecting the 1982 game was the weak season that A M had been having. Senior Margaret Ann Rose said, " I don ' t 140 UT A M Rivalry think the rivalry is as strong as it once was. And you want to know why? Because I don ' t think UT really considers A M a threat. " To the Aggies, it didn ' t matter that their football team had not been doing well, or that A M had won only 22 out of 88 games in the series against Texas. At College Sta- tion, pre-game interest was a good deal higher than at Texas, partly because the Corps acted as a campus-wide pep squad whipping up spirit. The Corps was also responsible for continuing the tradition of the bonfire before the game. For those who had never seen it before, the Aggie bonfire was an amazing sight. Not content to have a small pile of wood and assorted trash, the Corps every year built a massive, elaborate structure of logs towering between 80 and 100 feet high. Aggies get quite ecstatic when i the bonfire is finally lit by a solemn group of torchbearers. They whoop, they holler and they go wild when the administration pro- mises them a day off from class if they win. For Aggies, the bonfire was an end in itself; the game was almost anticlimactic. Fortunately for Texas, the bonfire did A M little good. On a cold and misting Thursday afternoon, Texas demolished the Aggies with a 53-16 defeat. The 1982 game was well-played, at least from the Longhorns ' standpoint, but it probably will not go down as memorable. In the first meeting in 1894, A M was not a scheduled opponent. Texas was in- itiating its football program and wanted to practice prior to an upcoming game against Tulane, so a scrimmage squad was organized at then A M College. UT won that first game 38-0. The schools did not play each other again until 1898 when Texas won 48-0, still the most lopsided defeat of the series. Not until 1902 did A M snap a seven-game losing streak with a 0-0 tie. In a second meeting that year, A M finally won, 11-0. In the decades around the turn of the cen- tury, college football was earning quite a reputation as a highly violent game. At the 1908 game, the violence took place among the fans. John D. Forsyth in his history of the rivalry, The Aggies and the ' Horns, described what happened: Texas rooters staged an " interhalf parade " on the field. While the band played, the rooters used brooms to demonstrate " a clean sweep of Texas A M. " The cadets, already irritated by the score, which showed them behind, rushed the field and a brawl ensued . . . After peace was restored, the Longhorns finished cutting out a 24-8 win. In 1917 one of the great legends of the rivalry supposedly took place. The following story of how Bevo, the UT mascot, got his name has alternately been reported as a true account and a myth over the years. Texas students were planning to brand the steer with the score of the 1916 game, 21-7, which Texas had won, and bring him to the Thanksgiving Day game. Some Aggies heard about the plans, however, and decided to do something about it. They got the necessary branding equipment, went to Austin, found the steer and branded him with the score of the 1915 game, 13-0, which A M had won. The handlers of the animal, once they discovered the prank, altered the characters. The 1 and 3 were made into a B, the hyphen became an E and a V was in- en When their football team makes points on the field, Aggies on the sidelines score with their dates. serted before the 0. The steer ' s new name, Bevo, was the brand name of a " near-beer " during that time. Bevo I did not enjoy a long life, however. A few years later he became a barbecue dinner for athletic lettermen of UT and A M. The rivalry continued at a fairly even pace for the next two decades. A M, for exam- ple, was national champion in 1939- In 1940 they were still undefeated and ranked No. 1 when they came to play Texas in Memorial Stadium. Head Coach Dana X. Bible would tell The Daily Texan in 1951, " All A M had to do was to beat us and the Rose Bowl bid was theirs. Because of this we wanted to win even more. " That proved to be the incentive the Longhorns needed. Pete Layden, Jack Grain, Noble Doss and the entire Texas team produced a spectacular series of plays in the first 58 seconds that led to the game ' s only touchdown. Texas ended with a 7-0 win in perhaps the most important game of the UT-A M rivalry. After the 1940 game the importance of the Thanksgiving Day game dropped con- siderably. A M had won only three games in the series from 1940 to 1974. Pranks before the game, however, reached new heights, as students of both schools used great imagination in devising stunts. There were always attempts to ignite th e other school ' s bonfire prematurely. Most original in this attempt was a Texas student who tried to bomb the Aggie bonfire from a plane in 1948. Most awkward were the Ag- gies who tried to ignite the UT bonfire on two separate occasions before the 1949 game. Four cadets had to go to the hospital to be treated for burns. Painting the buildings and statues at either campus was also a favorite prank. A M students poured maroon paint on Littlefield Fountain and other structures at UT, while the Longhorns used orange paint at College Station. Every year administrators reaffirmed a joint agree- ment made in 1954 promising suspension for any student caught doing mischief at either school. The statement did little to slow down the number of pranks. Even as recent- ly as the spring of 1982 a group of Aggies tried to steal a granite war memorial from Memorial Stadium for reasons known only to themselves. Questions about the importance of the rival ry and how much longer it will continue tend to arise since most traditions don ' t last forever. None of this mattered, though, at the midnight yell practice Thanksgiving eve 1982. To the crowd gathered on the Capitol steps that night, the rivalry remained impor- tant. Even 89 years after A M and Texas first played, each school still loved to hate the other. by Brian Zabcik UT A M Rivalry 141 Shortly after midnight on Dec. 16, University police apprehended two men breaking into the Department of Marketing Administration office of Dr. Robert E. Witt. The two were trying to steal exams and their case launched investigations by both a Travis County grand jury and Associate Dean of Students David McClintock. The investigations found a long-held rumor to be true. Since the fall of 1981 several University students had been involved in the stealing, selling and buying of exams, and the forging of identification cards. In March the two students and a third accomplice were in- dicted by the grand jury. McClintock ' s in- vestigation, though, was more far-reaching, pressing charges against 23 University students. By the end of the year disciplinary action had been taken against 12 of those charged. What The Universi- ty called student judicial services in- variably led to a lot of publicity, but Dean McClintock stressed that it was only one of several functions of the Dean of Students Office. Programs for disabled students and minority students, research on student needs and interests, c and summer orienta- 1 B tion were some other ? duties of the office. In J an interview with the Cactus, McClintock spoke at length on the two main areas with which he worked, discipline and student organizations. He chose his words carefully, using general terms like " interpersonal skills " and " support systems. " First, though, a little background on the dean of students office. As many people can attest, the University bureaucracy can work in strange and mysterious ways. Few things are stranger, though, than the fact that the dean of students position is not a part of the dean ' s office. After former dean James Hurst resigned in 1981, Vice President for Student Dean McClint Affairs Ronald Brown assumed the position, but not the title, of the office. Running the dean ' s office was left to associate deans Mc- Clintock and Sharon Justice. McClintock had worked in the Dean of Students Office since 1972 before being named associate dean in 1979. Working in the dean ' s office, McClintock frequently dealt with disciplinary problems. Some were highly publicized, such as the rash of hazing incidents that saw the Texas Cowboys and two campus fraternities put on probation in 1976-77. The majority of cases he dealt with, though, involved individual students; of these, about 60 percent were non-academic, while 40 percent were pro- blems of scholastic dishonesty, or cheating. McClintock said the most common of the non-academic cases were " public intoxica- tion, driving while in- toxicated, and things of that nature. " The most impor- tant case the dean ' s office dealt with in 1982-83, however, was the exam theft case. Adding another dimension to McClin- tock ' s probe was the grand jury ' s concur- rent investigation and the indictments it returned. Gregory Brown Wallace and Harry Hayden Fouke III, both members of Acacia fraternity but not enrolled at UT at the time, were charged with burglary of the building, a second-degree felony. James Marcus Brown, a junior in business ad- ministration and an inactive member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, was accused of acting as a solicitor in the burglary and was in- dicted as a party to the crime. McClintock said his investigation of the case was con- ducted independently of the grand jury, while the only help the dean ' s office gave to the district attorney ' s office was in turning over subpoenaed student records. As of May no further actions had been isciplinary procedures. 142 To Catch A Thief taken in the cases of Wallace, Fouke and Btown, but McClintock ' s office had already expelled two students and suspended three for one year. Final action taken against seven other students included a six-month suspen- sion and failing grades in classes in which stolen tests were used. Though many in- dividuals charged in the case were Greeks, McClintock said " not everyone was a member of a fraternity. " McClintock in- terviewed more than 65 students in his investigation, which also found evidence of ID forging. David Opperman, vice president of Acacia, credited the dean with handling the case properly. " He tried to handle it with as much integrity as possible, " Opperman said. " He handled each person on an individual basis. " When not handling disciplinary matters, McClintock worked with student organiza- tions; he had several comments on the values of student groups. He agreed that because of the size of The University, it was easy to become isolated in special interest groups that had little contact with each other. Some organizations did work to bring together students with diverse interests, and McClin- tock gave as examples the Union, the Student Senate, campus religious groups and the residence halls. He remarked, " A person has to want that enough to make themselves available to different activities. I think that it ' s extremely important to take advantage of the diversity that occurs at The University and to extend your friendships and activities as broadly as you can. " Taking a leading role in campus organiza- tions had many benefits for the individual, according to McClintock, who planned to teach a course on student leadership in the fall of 1983. Student leaders learn how to get along better with people, develop friend- ships, and build self-esteem through their ac- complishments. McClintock said likewise, working in leadership positions helped to reduce isolation and loneliness. McClintock concluded by saying: " The opportunity for students to come to The University is a privilege that they should learn to appreciate, because there are rich resources and many opportunities for personal growth, and I think that all creates a very exciting place to be. " by Brian Zabcik To Catch A Thief 143 DOBIE THE NAME LIVES ON It towered 29 stories into the Austin skyline, but no one knew what to call it. The mammoth, coeducational residence hall, shopping mall and parking garage, known today as Dobie Center, was still unnamed upon its completion in 1970. Only after the building company spon- sored a campus-wide " Name-that-Building " contest did a fitting title emerge. J. Frank Dobie, a colorful author and professor of English during the ' 30s, loathed tall buildings. Yet, in an article published before his death in 1964, Dobie realiz- ed the need for " progress. " In " Change, Change, Change, " he used mples like Dallas, Houston and Austin to show the powers of pro- gress. An enterprising UT student, who submitted this article and Dobie ' s name, won the " Name-that- Building " contest. Her prize was a one-year UT scholarship and free board at Dobie Center. This city within a building, " on the corner of 21st and Guadalupe streets, boasted that it was the ideal place for UT students to reside. From the two-level shopping mall to the 29-story dorm with 896 beds, Dobie constantly hum- med with activity. A prospective resident could choose from four different floor plans: a single room, double room, side suite or, if he was lucky, a corner suite with a spectacular view of the Tower, state Capitol and Memorial Stadium. In addition, Dobie kitchen had a varied menu and the cooks prepared quality food and festive dinners. But when the meals were not appealing, a hungry resi- dent could hop in the elevator and choose from a variety of eateries, from McDonald ' s and the SamWitch shop to Danes Cones. Dobie mall also featured contained a video arcade and two movie screens. Ironically, however, J. Frank Dobie got his name stamped on the 29-story dorm and shopping mall even though he believed buildings should spread out not up. When the UT Main Building, with 27 stories, was completed in 1937, Dobie wrote in the Alcade: " The offices in this Tower are all alike, like lockers in a steam laundry. The Tower would fit any university of the first class anywhere in America that aspired to be a huge factory for turning out degrees. " With all of the University land, Dobie never understood why UT insisted on building such a skyscraper. To top off this Professor J. Frank Dobie hated highrises and he inspired students. monstrosity with a Greek temple absolutely disgusted Dobie. Chancellor Harry Ransom, Dobie ' s friend, had an office tucked high in the Tower. While visiting Ransom, Dobbie said: " You know, after all these years, I ' ll ad- mit this Tower is a good place to look from, although I still don ' t think it ' s much to look at. " A native Texas born in Live Oak County in 1888, J. Frank Dobie was a Southwest historian and storyteller. Dobie got his master ' s in English from Columbia Universi- ty in 1914. Although he never received his Ph.D., he became the first UT faculty member to rise above the position of in- structor and become a full professor. He taught English at UT from 1914 to 1947. Dobie was often in rebellion against popular opinion. In endless campaigns for personal liberty, he confronted many power- ful Texans head-on. He began a bitter con- frontation with UT Board of Regents over the demotion of a faculty member and the firing of three others. Dobie saw the situation as " just another link in a chain of regental ac- tions designed to suppress freedom of speech, to get rid of liberal minds, and to bring The University of Texas to the status of fascist-controlled institutions. " Throughout his academic career, Dobie opposed the unequal educa- tions of blacks and whites. In a speech in Dallas, Dobie said he had grown accustomed to Negroes in his classrooms at Columbia. Later Lt. Gov. John Lee Smith spoke out against Dobie on the floor of the Texas Senate. " There is a definite move on foot to bring about social equality with the Negro race in the South. Dobie admits that Negro students alongside whites would not be objectionable to him, and thus Dobie must surely be fired. " Yet his eventual firing came over a less controversial issue. The Board of Regents refused Dobie ' s request for a leave of absence, firing him after he failed to teach the first day of class. James Frank Dobie was a prolific writer who did his research while riding around the state, loafing around chuckwagons, and gab- bing with trail drivers; his pen graced the pages of hundreds of publications. After UT fired him in 1947, Dobie continued to write and speak about the land he loved so much. Sept. 18, 1964, James Frank Dobie passed away in his sleep, leaving a deep unending pride in a land he taught Texans to love. Dobie 145 After winning the first presidential race of the returning student government, Paul Begala is held aloft by his supporters at the victory party at Scholtz ' s. 146 Student Government . PRETTY GCDD DEAL! THAT ASSASSIN ' S BULLETS UtNT RIGHT THROUGH ME! ...H COW.WVT, EVGVSEE ME! Resurrecting student government from its five-year burial, students voted by a 529-vote margin for the Students ' Association ' s return Oct. 6, 1982. The Students ' Association was reinstated during Nov. 10 elections in which a vice president, Jon McNeil, and 41 senators were elected . In the president ' s race involving liberal arts senior Paul Begala, business senior Pat Duval and second-year law student J. Wray Warren, Sam Hurt ' s cartoon character, Hank the Hallucination, marred the returns by his strong write-in vote. The Daily Texan hallucination finished first with 3,013 votes, forcing a runoff between Duval and Begala Nov. 17. Hank was not listed on the runoff ballot because his supporters did not file. Hank backers claimed their candidate had already won. Hank ' s campaign manager Steve Patterson said, " We finally have a student government here at UT that truly represents the students of The University. " The second-year law student added, " All the finest dreams and aspirations have been captured in the imagination of the majority of the student body. " However, those " dreams " were dashed in the Texan ' s Dec. 8 " Eyebeam " strip. A youngster, equipped with an inventive mind, shot and presumably killed Hank with a " loaded " index finger. Hank ' s creator, UT law student Sam Hurt, said this tragedy occur- red because " a vivid imagination was stronger than a powerful hallucination. " Begrieved students mourned Hank ' s " death. " shower- ing the Daily Texan offices with flowers. Hank returned, however, in the March 8 " Eyebeam " strip, claiming he was bored. Without Hank around, Begala won the Nov. 17 runoff election over Duval 2,374 to 1,863, garnering 56 percent of the vote. As Students ' Association president, Begala tried to establish student government ' s credibility through projects like student lobbying in the Texas Legislature and an escort service for students on and off cam- pus called Students United for Rape Elimination. Before these pro- jects began, Begala and the Senate organized a committee structure for the Students ' Association. These committees were Student Ser- vices, SURE, Academic Affairs, University Policy, Consumer Affairs, Legislative Affairs, Citizens Affairs, Communications, Rules and Con- stitutional Amendments, Judicial and Finance. The Senate faced a stumbling block when controversy arose con- cerning the salaries of the Students ' Association ' s president and vice president. At an earlier meeting in December, salaries were set at $669 a month for the president, equal to The Daily Texan editor ' s current salary, and half that amount for the vice president. Student senator Greg Surovic, second-year law student, filed a complaint shortly thereafter with the Judicial Commission calling the salaries unconstitu- tional. Surovic said the constitution did not provide salaries for the special four-month term. After several hearings, the Judicial Commission upheld Surovic ' s complaint, setting Begala ' s salary at $448 and McNeil ' s at half that amount. In this way, the salaries were adjusted to that of The Daily Texan editor in 1978, the year student government was abolished. Begala called the pay controversy a petty matter obstructing the Senate ' s work. He added that the pay controversy overshadowed Senate accomplishments made during the first term. Begala cited the work of the Legislative Affairs Committee that lobbied hard on several bills affecting students. Student lobbyists worked on bills concerning student control of student fees, tuition and the drinking age. Begala also cited other programs such as campus voter registration drives, Austin city council lobbying and the SURE service. Despite these programs, the approximately 45,535 students who did not vote at all in the student government referendum still viewed stu- dent government ' s return with skepticism. Observing the Senate ' s work, liberal arts sophomore Jeff Leitner said that student govern- ment ' s success would depend on how well the government involved the " average " student. " The Senate should do programs for the next four to five years that are visible to students, " Leitner said. " They need to set realistic goals and meet them. " Begala said students ' skepticism was valid. " We have to fight history. Chip by chip we hope to dissolve their doubts and convince students of the Student ' s Association ' s importance, " Begala said. Natural sciences senator Mike Hiller agreed with Begala ' s assess- ment, saying, " Communications with students has been a problem. We are working to get more student feedback. " Although he readily admitted there were flaws in the constitution, Begala said the Students ' Association ' s future was bright. " As long as we have an activist student government powered with selfless, dedicated workers, " he said, " the needs of the students can and will be fulfilled. Follow-up is crucial. " Begala chose not to run in the March 2 elections. On that day, 35 senators were selected while close races for both the presidency and the vice presidency forced a runoff March 9. In the runoff, business senior Mitch Kreindler defeated business senior Tom Dunlap by 384 votes. In the vice presidential race, liberal arts senior Trevor Pearlman beat liberal arts junior David White by 204 votes. Kreindler, Pearlman and the new Senate began work April 4, pro- mising to continue programs already initiated. Begala warned the new officers to be prepared. " For the next year, " he cautioned, " be ready to eat, breathe and sleep student issues.

While she lived a life of luxury she was sympathetic to the needs of the working people. She was labeled a non- person after the death of her husband, Argentine dictator-president Juan Peron. To- day her name has been erased from all public places and Argentine history. Yet Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, the master minds behind " Jesus Christ Superstar, " have revived her storybook life for Broadway. Their musical extravagnaza, " Evita, " played the Performing Arts Center, Jan. 12-16. The opera-like production began and end- ed with the funeral of Eva Peron. The scenes in between depicted her life in a series of sur- realistic images played out on stage. A massive screen in the background flashed documentary footage of the Peron regime. In his ascent to the presidency, Juan Peron (John Leslie Wolfe) was illustrated in a game of musical chairs. Continued on page 150 EVITA (cont. from page 149) Eva (Florence Lacey) rose above her poverty and illegitimate birth to become Argentina ' s first lady. She went to Buenos Aires as a young woman and worked her way into high society. She dated many rank- ing military men until she finally met and married General Peron. In contrast to the Perons ' political dominance was Che Guevera (Tim Bowman), whose antagonistic role resem- bled a Greek chorus. Guevara elaborated on the plot. For example, he described Eva in a song he sang to a tango dancer who first brought Eva to Buenos Aires: " Seems to me there ' s no point in resisting. She ' s made up her mind You ' ve got no choice Do alls of your one-night stands give you thj trouble? " Eva ' s excesses finally As she exploited ArgentinaMBi, she herself was corrupted. version of " Don ' t Me, Argentina " precluded her d T Yet, even from her death bed, she was able to manipulate. Her tragic death at 33 sent shock waves through the Argentine people. Guevara summed up the emotions, singing " You were supposed to be immortal.

Drama 151 s it true that children are born with a dislike for Shakespeare? Or do they acquire a distaste for the playwright after years of hearing older siblings disparage " Hamlet " and " Macbeth " ? In an attempt to answer this question which has plagued English teachers for years, the UT Department of Drama presented a series of Shakespearean plays designed for children. As a part of the Theatre for Youth Series, the department presented Shakespeare ' s " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " to a small au- dience of adults and children on Oct. 24. Not unlike the plots of modern soap operas, the plot of " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " featured several pairs of inter-related love affairs. The opening action found an odd troupe of men gathered at Peter Quince ' s carpentry shop in Athens to prac- tice their play, " Pyramus and Thisby. " Initial evidence of the young audience ' s approval of the production came when they respond- ed to Michael Harlin ' s pouty rendition of Bottom, a hopeless actor who wanted to play all the parts. The ungainly crew of actors delighted the youngsters with their slapstick humor as they prepared to perform at the King ' s wed- ding celebration. At the practice in the woods however, Bottom ' s head was transformed into that of a donkey ' s by Puck, a mischievous fairy whom Oberon the fairy king had sent to hex the queen. The carnival of events which followed found Titania, the queen, in love with Bottom because of the hex, only to be freed when Oberon felt remorse for his jealousy. Scenic elements like surprise entrances through trap doors and a frisky lion were in- cluded to guide the children ' s interest through the maze of Shakespeare ' s plot, but the adults present enjoyed it as well. Judging from the chattering youngsters mimicking their favorite characters as they left the theatre, it seemed that, at least for this group, the Department of Drama had suc- ceeded in bringing Shakespeare to the children. by Lynn Weaver Wood dwellers, costumes blending into their environment, plot new hexes in " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream.

' V- The Women, " a biting com- edy by Clare Booth, ex- plored the consequences that gossip can have on 1 peoples ' lives during its October run. Featuring an all-female cast, the play centered around the life of Mary Haines (Suzy Fay), whose husband ' s torrid affair with his New York secretary was known to everyone but her. Suzy Fay ' s adamant por- trayal of Mary, who rejected the advice of friends who suggested divorce, set her up as a martyr to the gossip of her snivelling friends, played by Lannyl Kilchrist, Becca Rauscher and Christ!

By the time the heartsick Mary met her husband ' s mistress, an arrogant wench played coldly by Maria Machart, her friends ' Jose Shenkner plays Don Giovanni. your mother didn ' t remember you, your rice crispies were silent, and your dog really did eat your term paper. And you think you ' ve had a rough day? Don Giovan- ni began his morning by first being rejected by his lover and then killing her father. His day and life ended when the statues of the man he murdered came to life, came to sup- per and pulled him into hell. Walter Ducloux directed the production of Mozart ' s tale of the unsuccessful, ar- rogant playboy " Don Giovanni. " The opera ran Oct. 21-24, featuring different performers in six of the eight major roles on alternating nights at the Performing Arts Center. Opening night, Stanley Norsworthy as constant banter had shattered her determina- tion to keep her infidel husband. The ten- sion created by Mary ' s bitter anguish loomed heavily in the theater. The friends had become enemies to the audience. There was an air of ironic justice, even elation, then, when two of the friends found their own husbands fooling around on the side. Mr. Haines and his mistress wed im- mediately after Mary got the divorce. Rather than feel relieved, though, Mary ' s regrets grew even larger. She retired from the Manhattan social life that had once kept her so busy. In the solace of her isolation, Mary ' s independence returned. So, when the new Mrs. Haines embarked on affairs of her own, the former Mrs. Haines knew exactly who she wanted. by Linda Jones Leporello, Don Giovanni ' s companion was the audience ' s favorite as he cavorted and cowered about the stage. Marjo Carroll as Donna Anna and Jose Shenkner as the un- fortunate Don Giovanni also gave fine vocal performances but could not match Nors- worthy ' s energetic stage presence. Long flowing dresses with intricate sleeves and revealing bodices lent an elegant air to the gentlewomen while the gentlemen were attired in willowy capes and ornate jackets. Matching the quality of singing and surpassing the acting, Gwendolyn Nagle ' s period costumes, Dennis Wakeling ' s transcendent sets and the UT Symphony ' s rich sound did an admirable job in trans- porting the Opera Lab Theatre back hun- dreds of years to castle courtyards, ballrooms, and brilliant starry nights. The play ended with Norsworthy, hiding under a table, cowering from shadows cast upon the high castle walls by candles in macabre holders made of maliciously grin- ning skulls. by Sandra Willeke Spirits were lifted high at the Performing Arts Center in De- cember by a delightfully sinful, updated version of " Scrooge. " " Ghosts Are People Too " was just one of the eye-catching numbers that made the stage literally come to life with the dazzle of scantily-clad dancing girls, the Ghostettes. Other numbers held such surprises as an enormous swan piloted by a wise-cracking Chandra Wilson and a lively group of glow- ing, tap-dancing skeletons. Tiny Tim, played by Kevin Cahoon, had not changed much for this play, but the boy did have a dream sequence visited by life- sized singing and dancing toys, including a few gift-wrapped boxes with legs that all joined together to do the can-can. Created and written by Jim Bernhard, " Scrooge " was performed by Houston ' s Theater Under the Stars. Throughout the evening, references made to current events kept the audience in tune as they moved to the edge of their seats. The younger members of the crowd were thrilled at the sight of familiar movie character " E.T. " as he was zipped across the stage in the basket of a boy ' s bicycle. Ebenezer Scrooge was brought to his hum-buggiest by veteran actor Charles Krohn. His portrayal of the cranky old character, Scrooge, was wonderful as he cripped about the stage complaining woeful- ly of the state of his character ' s affairs. The origin al three ghosts of the Charles Dickens tale were combined and played by Tommy J. Hollis. Hollis ' character was a neon-dressed spirit full of enough soul for six or more ghosts. His energetic tone and sure-footed dancing stole the show as Hollis led a cantankerous Scrooge through the various stages of his past life. F.xploding flashpots demanded the au- dience ' s attention during the graveyard scene where Scrooge was visiting the home he would occupy after death. This event came only after the grand entrance of Kerry Dur- din as the wailing, chain-dragging Ghost of Marley, whose grotesque figure and frightful purpose were revealed to the crowd with a loud blast and a billowy burst of smoke that expanded across the set. As the play came around to its climax, the entire hall seemed to be filled with holiday spirit. The biggest surprise came with the release of trained doves which swept over the audience then back to the stage for the grand finale. by Peggie Laser Drama 155 We bs ter Smalley ' s Shoestrings: Tying New Plays and Their Creators Closer Together Shoestrings get no respect. After weeks of securing the shoes of their masters, their fate is to be cussed when they break. The name has even been adopted as an adjective to describe anything not carried to its full potential. In football, there ' s the shoestring tackle. Thinly-sliced spuds are called shoestrings, but only when they can ' t measure up to french fry standards. In theater, though, shoestring inspires a sort of respect. There ' s something about pulling off a good produc- tion on a limited, nay, severely constricted budget that brings to mind the revered basics of drama the writer, the actor, the audience. These, the fundamentals of the Professor Webster Smalley and Cheryl Hawkins combined their talents and garnered an award for " Shattered Home. " 154 Shoestring Theater theater, can be lost in the artistic mire that sometimes accompanies a well-budgeted production. It was the value of the shoestring budget concept, its emphasis on the play rather than the production, that inspired Dr. Webster Smalley of the Department of Drama at the University of Texas to initiate Shoestring Theater in the spring of 1981. The program, a series of three production periods each semester, was designed to let playwrights see their works in progress, per- formed and directed just as they would be in the theater, though without the technical and costuming budgets afforded Major Series and MFA Thesis Series productions. Where a full production might have drawn upon the talents of up to 30 technicians, a shoestring play garnered five at the most. Plays for the Shoestring Theater series were chosen by Smalley. Drawing from the plays of his graduate student playwrights, faculty members and former students, he narrowed the 20-50 submitted plays to the nine or 10 he thought would benefit most from a live production. The production would be a living workshop for the play- wright rather than a showcase for the work itself. As Dr. Smalley said, " The program is not intended to directly launch a play. Its in- tention is to develop playwrights, not plays. " The p.. gram did, however, help to launch the award-winning " Shattered Home. " Writ- ten by master ' s candidate Cheryl Hawkins, " Shattered Home " was chosen the winner of the Second Annual Joseph Kesseiring Award by the unanimous vote of the National Arts Club of New York. According to Hawkins, it was the play ' s performance in the first Shoestring Theater cycle and the direction ov Smalley that helped her make the revi- sions in characterization and plot that led to a more refined product. .- - nna Miller confronts Suzy Fay in the tense drama " Born Again, " the story of a youn woman ' s adaptation to life in a Christian children ' s home. . : ::m a.; : ;.

Suggestions for im- provement came first from students, then from Smalley. The criticism stemming from the readings, however, was not a binding force in the refinement of the plays. " If I don ' t agree with the changes he (Smalley) suggests, then I won ' t make them, " said Van Watson, a graduate student specializing in playwrighting and author of " Born Again, " one of the nine plays performed in the 1982- 83 Shoestring Theater program. " In this case, though, I realized he was right. " A third act for the original two-act script was suggested after a classroom reading that left readers asking for a conclusion. The constant revisions and choruses of " but will this work " so characteristic of the playcrafting process stemmed from the fact that a playwright has so many factors to con- sider when writing for the theater. " The playwright, unlike the writer of fiction, has to deal with stage lighting, scene design, ac- tors and a director as well as the writing ele- ment the story, " said Smalley. As Mark Friesen, graduate student and author of " The Elisha Trials " said, " The reading (of the ' Elisha Trials ' ) helped me see places where : ' t Playwright Van Watson observes rehearsal. the actor had to go from one emotional level to another without enough transition to back it up. " Since many off-Broadway companies showcased new plays rather than rehashing the established ones, the demand for new material was there. The competition, however, was so great and the contacts so limited that a new playwright had little chance of landing a production. Shoestring Theater was one of the premier programs in the country that afforded playwrights the chance to improve their plays onstage before submitting them to theater companies or competitions. The Shoestring Theatre pro- gram soon gained nationwide attention, and the effect on the Department of Drama was encouraging. Smalley estimated that applica- tions to the graduate playwrighting program increased three or four times after the in- stitution of the series. Considering the alternatives a writer new to the production circuit faced in the Austin area, Smalley said that the Texas Union and the Capitol City Playhouse occasionally featured works by area playwrights, but there was little opportunity outside of that to market a new play in the city. While Shoestring Theater funding was limited, its resources were great. With the support of Drama Department Chairman Coleman Jennings, the vast array of stock costumes available, the talents of some 350 drama students and the aspirations of the playwrights at its disposal, Shoestring Theater proved to be a prince in peasant ' s clothing. Michael A. Sutter Shoestring Theater 1 55 Billy Bounces Back Fidgeting in their seats, a near-capacity crowd anticipated the return of Billy Joel, New York ' s favorite son, to the Frank Er- win Center Dec. 2. Back on tour after a recent motorcycle ac- cident which injured both hands, the 33-year-old balladeer turned rocker was back with all the same energy, charisma and casual humor that had brought him national recognition. Clad in a yellow blazer, black tie, jeans and sneakers, Joel bran- dished a flyswatter to ward off the bats he claimed were waiting for him in the rafters. He then opened his set with a poignant commentary on the situation of unemployed steel workers in Pennsylvania entitled " Allentown, " from his new album " The Nylon Curtain. " After charm- ing his audience with his contagious enthusiasm and playful ridicule of artists who play only their newest material in concert, Joel proceed- ed with his time-honored tunes such as his first hit, " Piano Man. " Adding to his catalog of romantic and upbeat rock melodies, Joel presented a new chapter in his career. The emotional impact of dedicating " Goodnight Saigon " to " friends who didn ' t come back " wrought a uniform sigh through the Erwin Center. His showy six-member band, which included a cocky saxophone player who shadowed Joel ' s every move, was assisted by the " Gay Caballeros, " Joel ' s stage crew, who snapped and sang with Spanish flair through " Don ' t Ask Me Why. " Joel lived up to his piano high-kick advertisements in performing his timeless hit " Bigshot. " Bounding back and forth across the stage, pointing an accusing finger at the audience and prancing atop his piano were all part of the showmanship that produced a mob of adolescent females screaming for his body at the apron of the stage. Billy Joel closed his unforgettable performance with a double encore, moving to an alternate set with an electric piano that freed Joel ' s feet to move to " It ' s Just a Fantasy. " For a " street kid " from New York, the evening was the fulfillment of a fantasy, and a chance for the au- dience to look beyond the " nylon curtain. " by Sheryl Lilly If 4 f.

Hanging to a more casual peach-colored flirt and white pants, Manilow settled down to perform old favorites such as " Mandy, " " Trying to Get the Feeling Again " and " I Write the Songs. " But the singer saved " I Can ' t Smile Without You " for UT Student Angela Conley, whose charming duet work brought her an " I Sang With Barry Manilow " T-shirt. Manilow ' s showstopping style, featuring songs that begin softly reminiscent and build to a passionate climax, was nowhere embodied more clearly than in " Looks Like We Made It. " Just as effective, however, was the finale, in which Manilow took audience participation to its highest plane as the UT choral groups joined him to make " One Voice " a reality in its inspiring message o unity. For Barry Manilow and those wh participated in his concert, that message rang true. by Cindy Sobel and Caryn Statman A " rough kid " image gave Joel ' s music meaning. Austin Greets Clapton " Cooder, Eric Clapton ' s warm- up act, told a story about two " Clapton fans whp had snuck into the rock and roll show that night and were " so excited " that they were finally going to see their hero. If those fans were really there, they would have been ecstatic over Ry Cooder in performance Feb. 13 at the Erwin Center. While the crowd came to see the legendary Eric Clapton, they were pleased by Cooder, who received a standing ovation following his opening act. Eric Clapton ' s stage show had none of the visual flair prevalent in Cooder ' s act. Songs ranged from his days with the Yardbirds and Cream to Derek and the Dominos, moving also to his solo efforts in " Slowhand " and finally, " Money and Cigarettes. " The audience remained quietly distant during the early part of the show. But when Clapton let loose the opening strains of " Layla, " the enthused crowd rushed the front of the stage, where they remained the rest of the concert. The most memorable moments came when Clapton played " Cocaine. " As the au- dience echoed the chorus, he launched into his trademark guitar solos. Although he has been known to solo uninterrupted for up to thirty minutes, his shorter efforts proved just as potent. by Linda Jones Guitarist Etic Clapton sttums " After Midnight. " iding the personal fitness wave of the ' 80s, Olivia Newton-John brought a polished " Physical " tour to the Frank Erwin Center Sept. 4. The tour ' s elaborate set featured an elevated video screen tracing Newton-John ' s life, starting from her British-Australian roots. The stage sported lighted tandem stairwells with a covey for horn master Tom Scott and his crew of jazz artists. Although Newton-John ' s black sequined mini-skirt and spiked hairstyle reflected her new image, the innocence in her voice rang through in her first American hits, " Have You Never Been Mellow " and " Sam. " At- tired in a deep red ensemble, Newton-John mesmerized the crowd with " Suddenly, " an uplifting duet with keyboard player Dennis Tufano. Newton-John ' s crimson attire soon reflected her incensed cardiovascular condi- tion in " Hear Attack " and " Make a Move on Me. " Moving to the music from her film debut in " Grease, " Newton-John went to the sizzl- ing " You ' re the One That I Want " with the dashing young Tufano. Then came the sug- gestive overtones of " Let ' s Get Physical, " and out raced Newton-John in white shorts and a Texas jersey to jog and stretch until she bade a winded farewell with " I Honestly Love You. " by Michael Sutter A cheerleader holding the audience ' s attention at the Frank Erwin Center was nothing new. But on Nov. 29, the cheerleader that held the crowd spellbound happened to be Linda Ronstadt. Dressed in boots and a red and white cheerleader ' s uniform, Ronstadt reaffirmed that she was the " Queen of Rock and Roll, " a title that she earned after entering the music business in the early 1970s. As the opening act, the Bus Boys set the tempo for the evening. The combination of their energetic antics and well played music brought the crowd to life for Ronstadt ' s ar- rival. After starting with two of her classics, " Tumbling Dice " and " It ' s So Easy to Fall in Love, " Ronstadt challenged the audience with the title song from her latest album " Get Closer. " It was evident that Ronstadt ' s voice had increased both in range and sharp- ness as a result of her Broadway debut in " The Pirates of Penzance. " During the songs " Blue Bayou, " " Heart Like a Wheel " and " Poor Poor Pitiful Me, " Ronstadt attained vocal heights that left the audience in awe, and they were brought to their feet during " I Can ' t Let Go. " After bur- ning through the first encore with " Heat- wave, " Linda Ronstadt closed out a night to remember with a tear-jerking rendition of " Desperado. " by Dan Yoxall c huck Mangione, " the madhatter of jazz, " and his quartet played more than just " Love Notes " for a near-capacity crowd at the Performing Arts Center on Nov. 3- The two-time Grammy winner, who wore his ever-present black hat, played a melange of favorites from his current album " Love Notes " and past recordings. After spending two hours with Mangione, one might have thought he was a Latin musician rather than an Italian native of Rochester, New York. His upbeat temoQ| conveyed distinctively Latino flugal sounds in a combination of spicy rhythms.

Bodies swayed to keep pace with the tempo as Mangione alternated play- ing his trumpet and keyboards. Chris Vidala ' s enthusistic mastery of the saxophone, flute and various percussion in- struments complemented Mangione ' s songs. The band earned its standing ovation with hits such as " Give It What You Got, " " Children of Sanchez " and " Chase the Clouds Away, " a song title which Olivia performs " Hopelessly Devoted to You. " Mangione ' s daughter inspired when she could not go outside and play because of rainy weather. When told she could not go outside, she said, " Oh, Daddy, chase the clouds away. " by Melissa Todd. Although fall finals loomed just around the corner, a moderately- sized crowd took time out for a little " High Adventure " with Kenny Loggins at the win Center on Dec. 12.

After playing of the more popular rock tunes such as " Keep the Fire " and Grammy nominee " I ' m All Right, " Loggins brought a stool and his guitar and sat center stage in a lone spotlight. From there, he mellowed out with tunes from his early days as a duet partner with Jim Messina, singing " House on Pooh Corner " and " Danny ' s Song. " Loggins con eluded with a ballad he wrote for his newborn son called " Only a Miracle " from his new album, " High Adventure. " Loggins ' encore lasted 20 minutes and in- cluded his Grammy-winning " This Is It " and the latest single " Don ' t Fight It. " Kenny us- ed his closing song, " Celebrate Me Home, " to give his talented band members each a chance to do a little solo jamming.

Playing a short 35-minute but neatly organized set, Survivor concluded with their big hit, the theme from Rocky HI, " The Eye of the Tiger. " When REO sped onstage, the crowd was on its feet and ready for a real musical ride. They got exactly that when the air was con- verted into harmonic wavelengths with " Roll With the Changes, " " Take It on the Run " and two of their best-sellers, " Keep on Loving You " and " Keep the Fire Burning.

The first signs of life among the crowd came when a glowing white spotlight reveal- ed Nicks in a flowing ivory dress and con- trasting black cape and hat as she leaped and twirled her way on stage. She was joined soon after by fellow members Christine and John McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham. Buckingham led the chant, " Can ' t help it ' bout the shape I ' m in. I can ' t sing, I ain ' t pretty and my legs are thin . . . " as he broke into " Oh, Well. " " Rhiannon " gave drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie a chance to complement Nicks ' vocals.

Featuring music from his album " No Control, " Money garnered enthusiastic audience participation for " Shakin 1 " and backed it up with " I Think I ' m In Love. " Closing with " Two Tickets to Paradise, " Money appeased the crowd with an encore before giving the stage to .38 Special. A darkened stage, a fanfare of trumpets and a blazing " .38 Special " logo signaled the entrance of the three-lead-guitar attack known as Southern rock-and-roll. Lead guitarists and vocalists Don Barnes and Donnie Van Zandt directed through hits from the " Special Forces " album. The band meshed old hits like " Wild-Eyed Southern Boys " with the fresher numbers like " You Keep Running Away " and " Love Is Gonna Find You. " The greatest audience response, however, came with " Hold On Loosely. " Ticketholders got the " show " they paid for as lead funnyman Donnie Van Zandt mounted a swinging contraption and swung into the arena as the .38 Special logo flashed in time to " So Caught Up in You " to cap an evening of exciting Southern rock. by Stacey Titens.

He ignited the crowd with his constant banter about sex and drugs. Musically, Van Halen performed most of their notables, including " Running With the Devil " and " Dance the Night Away. " The emphasis, however, fell on their latest album " Diver Down " as they sang " Pretty Woman " and " Dancin ' in the Streets. " Drummer Alex Van Halen banged out several solos and bassist Michael Anthony executed a flashy solo supported by a whirling display of red, green and blue lights. The highlight throughout the concert was the playing of guitarist Edward Van Halen. Van Halen reveals their brand of rock to Austin. Eddie ' s agile fingers brought to life the screeching, heavy-metal electricity generated in the band ' s early days. Hailed as the new messiah of the electric guitar, Eddie was voted the " world ' s greatest rock-and-roll guitarist " by a group of his peers which in- cluded Carlos Santana, Frank Zappa and An- dy Summers of the Police. The solos " Erup- tion " and " Spanish Fly " let the artist awe the crowd with two-handed fury. In the middle of their final encore, " You Really Got Me, " the band gathered at thj foot of the stage to sing a comic versic " Happy Trails, " with Roth humming tune while the other men sang Tones. Music 159 M usic expos- Silly Squier to figh school age au- Fiat greeted him Feb. 19 fie Frank Erwin Center. The video channel featured Squier ' s high-tech works from the album " Emotions In Motion " as a regular part of the play list. The Canadian band, Saga, opened the program with an hour of music from their first U.S. album, " Worlds Apart. " Their slick, theatrical style held true to their MTV showman- ship. Saga ' s inspired rendition of " On the Loose " brought a wave of flickering Bic lighters to the arena. For the crowd, Saga ' s perfor- mance ended much too soon, for the stage crew took an anguishing 50 minutes to prepare for Squier ' s entrance. The entrance, however, justified the wait as Squier appeared high atop a pile of center-stage amplifiers, bathed in the glow of a lone yellow spotlight. Stan- ding defiantly with legs apart, he began snapping his fingers to the racy opening of " Everybody Wants You. " In zippered black parachute pants and a cut-off T-shirt, Squier resembled a rubber band as he raced across the stage and jumped on and off piles of speakers. Among his most energetic numbers were " Emotions in Motion " and " My Kind of Lover. " Particularly memorable, however, was " Lonely Is the Night, " with a three note rest separating the first line of the song from the powerful downbeat pause sequences that followed. Squier turned the sug- gestive " Stroke " into an audience participation forum that saw emo- tions most definitely in motion, and everyone there, it seemed, wanted Billy Squier at least for another encore. by Lynn Weaver Energetic rocker Billy Squier puts a punch of emotion into " Lonely Is the Night. " Calling the fans his " per- sonal guests, " John Cougar said, " There aren ' t many of us here, so come on down. " As the opening act for Heart at the Erwin Center on Nov. 17, Cougar took full ad- vantage of the small crowd to present his unique brand of " raunch and roll. " The stage was decorated with colorful balloons, which seemed contradictory to his " Hurts So Good " image rein- forced by the raunchy moves of the female back-up vocalists. The highlight of Cougar ' s performance came when he dedicated ' Jack and Diane, " a song written about time he spent in Austin, to the sparse crowd. He closed by releasing the balloons while singing " I Need a Lover. " Heart presented a delightful mix of ballads and rock and were coaxed into three encores by the sparse, lively crowd.

Bream swept the audience away from the eloquent reveries of the concert with a romantic, passionate " Valses Poeticos " by the Spanish composer Granados. Bream interjected a personal note when he announced that the piece, " Sonata in One Movement , " had been written for him by a young composer, Michael Berkeley. The sonata was a rather bizarre piece that proved odd rhythms and ear-grating dissonance were not the sole province of rock guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen. Julian Bream surprised the audience yet again by deviating from the program on a whim. He substituted three pieces byjoaquin Rodrigues as a finale.

" He had transcribed the intricate piece for the violin from Geminiani ' s original Italian score. The transition from Geminiani ' s difficult " Sonata " toj. S. Bach ' s smooth " Chaconne " gave audience and performer a chance to relax. Milstein complemented the pleasant emotion of the piece with graceful sways of the violin in time with the flowing melody. As if to create a deliberate contrast, Milstein breathed life into the violent strains of Nic- colo Paganini ' s " Two Caprices.

Proceeding as if there were not a moment to lose, her three-piece band moved into the opening strains of " Both Sides Now, " a song written by Joni Mitchell that brought Collins considerable media ex- posure in 1967. At that point in the show, one might have smugly anticipated Collins would rely heavily on her greatest hits songbag, but such was not the case. She challenged her fans with a wide range of material. Some such as " My Father " and " Since You Asked " were her own composi- tions. Other such as " Salt of the Earth " by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and " In .

" by Bill Karnoscak On Oct. 10, surrounded by the plushness of the Performing Arts Center and charmed by the sounds of the Berlin Philharmonic Octet, classical music fans temporarily escaped the clamor of contem- porary rock, country and soul music. The octet sometimes soothed, sometimes excited the audience with three ensemble pieces from the Viennese period. Led by violinist Leon Spirer, the group was composed of principal, or first chair, players of the Berlin Philharmonic Or- chestra. Two selections by Wolfgang Mozart began the concert, " Divertimento No. 1 in D Major " and " Horn Quintet in E-flat Ma- jor. " Following an intermission, the au- dience was entertained by Franz Schubert ' s " Octet in F Major. " The fast paced, rousing end of this final piece drew a standing ova- tion from the crowd of approximately 1,300. Austin was only one of eight American cities to host the group. In existence for 50 years, the octet had been a regular at Euro- pean music festivals. by Steve Hamlett The Performing Arts Center Concert Hall :,: -....-. ,- . . ..,-,: ' : V. ! ' fa4!0oq .

On Oct. 13, the group played to a full house at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall. The symphony ' s playing was tight, expressive, and rarely failed to completely absorb the audience. Christopher Eschenbach showed himself to be a qualified, enthusiastic con- ductor. He conveyed to the audience a per- sonal sense of excitement about the music. The evening ' s program highlighted the music of two of Vienna ' s most famous com- posers, Johann Strauss Jr. and Gustav Mahler. The overture from Strauss ' " Die Fledermaus " opened the performance. This composition was a skillful collection of familiar melodies from Strauss ' finest most popular operatic work. It was a piece that set the tone for the Beethoven ' s " Triple followed the overture, ble and harder to follow dj Hffne of the composer ' s better-jj works, the concerto still proved to be a popular piece. Soloists were Heinz Medjimorec on piano, Michael Schnitzler on violin and Wahlther Schulz on cello. The three played especially well as an ensemble, letting the melody flow back and forth among themselves. Mahler ' s " Symphony No. 1 in D Major, " the final scheduled piece, was a beautiful, massive work. Still, somber chords sustair by the strings opened the music, melody coming in gradually, finaiiy i to a peak at the end of the tirst.irib plTent. The third movement was,,.

Once the forceful 51 movement came to an end, the crowd responded with a standing ovation. After four curtain calls, the orchestra came back for an encore. Once again it was a Strauss composition, this time his most famous ever, " The Blue Danube Waltz. " The piece worked well as a mental relaxant. It brought the performance down from the emotional high of Mahler ' s first to the serene banks of the Danube. The concert was a rare chance for Austin to see one of the world ' s great symphonies in an excellent performance. by Brian Zabcik M erging merriment and music, the Candian Brass traveled south Feb. 2, to play at the Performing Arts Center Conceit Hall. The ensemble ' s repertoire included a variety of music rang- ing from baroque suites to a jazzy Fats Waller medley. Amusement reigned during the show as the musicians interspersed their playing with musical trivia such as: " The trombone was invented 700 years ago and it hasn ' t been improved since! " The musician comedians were Frederick Mills, trumpet and ar- rangements; Graeme Page, French horn; Eugene Watts, trombone; and Charles Daellenbach, tuba. Performing portions of Bizet ' s opera, " Carmen, " they acted out the parts with wigs, hats and a toreador ' s cape. Only 13 years old, the Canadian Brass had played around the world and were the first Western ensemble to play in China.

" The quiet piece was not as flashy as the preceding one, and was perhaps an unimposing finale for the first half of the program. In the second half of the program, de Lar- rocha concentrated on the highly charged music of the impressionistic mode. She elec- trified the audience with Maurice Ravel ' s " Valses nobles et sentimentales. " De Lar- rocha ' s confident interpretation of the two pieces by Debussy which followed brought the audience to their feet in heartfelt ap- proval. The thunderous ovation prompted an encore, the Catalian " Song of the Birds, " a lyrical, melancholy work which provided an exquisite contrast to the impressionistic works which had closed the program.

Dazzling in a studded turquoise cape drip- ping with so many yellow and white feathers that one band member claimed it resembled something he wore in vacation Bible school, Mandrell gave Austin the gift of her voice on songs like " Country When Country Wasn ' t Cool " and " Sleeping Single in a Double Bed. " The giving continued when Mandrell shared the stage with a little girl named Julia, who played the harmonica for the singer through " Wish You Were Here. " Mandrell ' s musical talent blazed across the set as she treated everyone to a sample of instrumental expertise. During Willie Nelson ' s " Night Life, " she began with a sax- ophone and moved to the slide guitar. From there, she strapped on a banjo to deliver a rendition of " Foggy Mountain Breakdown " that would make any grandfather proud. For " Ghost Riders in the Sky, " Mandrell let the steel and electric guitars sing as she rested the voice that earned her gold records, Country Music Association Awards and a network television program.

I think I ' ll get a cold beer. " Joe Ely, Austin Musician In July 1982, Austin was the setting for the world premiere of " The Best Little Who rehouse in Texas. " The movie spectacle about the infamous Chicken Ranch outside LaGrange lured such superstars as Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds to Austin. The $100 tickets for the special screening at the Paramount Theatre for the Performing Arts raised money for the theatre ' s programming fund. Marvin Zindler probably flipped his salt-and-pepper toupee when he saw what Hollywood did to his controversial report, which broke more than a decade ago on Houston ' s Channel 13 " Eyewitness News. " Following a lengthy battle in and out of court, Zindler had the Chicken Ranch shut down by order of then Gov. Dolph Briscoe. In the movie, Burt Reynolds as Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd allowed the Chicken Ranch to remain in operation until pressure from Dom Deluise (as Melvin P. Thorpe of " Watchdog News " ) forced its closing. Named for the fowls Depression customers paid the women, the Chicken Ranch got national recognition following an article by Texas author Larry King. The parody of Texas stereotypes from good ole boy politicians to Aggies was the basis for the Tony award-winning musical " The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. " Following the entertainment industry ' s trend, the Broadway hit came to the movie screen with an all-star cast, including country singer Dolly Parton as Miss Mona, the Chicken Ranch madame. Although some of the filming was on location in La Grange and Austin, the real Chicken Ranch wasn ' t used since it had been moved to Dallas and converted into a restaurant. Scenes shot in the Texas Capitol attracted crowds who hoped they would appear as extras. While some people were insulted by the glamorization of a " house of ill repute, " most Texans enjoyed the media attention and the chance to chuckle at themselves. by Linda Jones Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds horse around at the Hyatt during the celebration.

Michener James A. Michener Celebrated Author Begins Book on Texas Michener was designated a visiting scholar to The University in 1982. " ... 7 don ' t have to work. I don ' t quit because I do have this compulsion to share ideas, to write powerful stories. " A literary phenomenon . . . America ' s favorite author . . . our most popular practitioner of the arts . . . All these modifiers were used by various national publications when describing James Michener, best known for his copious historical novels. Michener, creator of Hawaii, The Source, Chesapeake, The Covenant, Space and many other literary jewels, was designated a visiting scholar to The University in 1982. With the help of the vast resources at The University, particularly at the Barker History Center, Michener began research on his latest creation, a novel set in Texas. Michener wrote his first book when he was 40 years old. The result, Tales of the nuth Pacific, won a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1947 and was the basis for the popular Rogers and Hammerstein musical, " South Pacific. " " I was a slow starter, " Michener said. " I never had a burning desire to do anything. I have a burning desire to do things well, but anything I feel the same way about. There are no priorities in my life. And I was always that way, within reason. So I think maybe it was hesitancy more than anything else. " But once he started, he had " a terrific head of steam up. " Michener explained his practice of working 365 days a year. " With the unbelievable success that some of my things have had, I ' m in a posi- tion where I don ' t have to work. I don ' t quit because I do have this compulsion to share ideas, to write powerful stories. " " I don ' t think of myself as a driven man. I really don ' t. Other people have sometimes felt I was, but they see me only when I ' m working. When I ' m working I actually do work every day. When I ' m not work- ing, I really dawdle around and waste time and catch up with things. " ' But when you ' re a freelance, which I am completely, I ' m not employed by anybody. I have no guarantees of income. I don ' t get any paid vacation. I don ' t have any paid Medicare. I don ' t have any retire- ment. I do it or it don ' t get done. And that is a different experience. It s a perilous position, but it ' s a position of great honor. " Michener didn ' t exaggerate when he spoke of his " unbelievable success. " For Americans always on the lookout for shortcuts, the length of a Michener novel would seem to be a deterrence. Not true. " I get letters every day of the week, saying that the books are too short, that when they come to the last three chapters, they begin to ra- tion themselves. I think that these letters come from bookaholics, a wonderful breed of people that I like to encourage.So maybe we ' re talking about a peculiar situation. " But also, I get a great many letters from men in busy occupations who say that they find my books an investment. They want to spend the time on them. I don ' t know really. I think I ' ve stumbled upon something that I do moderately well that fills a need. " Michener was no stranger when he came to Texas as a visiting scholar. He wrote in- timately about the Bluebon- net State in the Centennial cattle drive. In 1937, he was the editor for a former UT professor, George Sanchez, who wrote books on the -i Spanish culture. And in | 1968, Michener and his wife, James Michener with wife Mari at home in Austin. Together they donated the HRC ' s Michene Collection. Mari, donated to The University their extensive collection of art, housed in the Harry Ransom Center. " This collection is a testimony to what a husband and wife did on their own, " Michener said. " Not with help, but just by going through museums. I ' d be crazy if I thought we ' d made no mistakes. " Author of five books on Asian art, Michener worked as a young man at Vanity Fair. He also dabbled in several paintings himself and said that various museums wanted to exhibit them. " But these are more personal, " he said. " I think you should par- ticipate on the amateur level to appreciate the professionals. " Michener spoke about himself as a professional. " I ' m 76. 1 have sur- vived. I have this moderately good record. We become valuable far beyond our merit, simply because we ' re here. I ' m still working; they ' re not working. It ' s just brute survival. " If I live to be 90, people will say, ' He ' s the grand old man of something or other. ' I won ' t be a damn bit better than I was at 30. But I ' ll still be here. " by Kelle Banks James A. Michener 16 9 iber 1942, Americans finally hail cause to cheer in the midst of World War II. Rexnt victories at Mid- way and Guadalcamil had nitned the tide in the Pacific theater. British General Montgomery was scoring victories over the German Erwin Rommel, in And in Europe, Hitler had been thwarte? his plans for an invasion of England. Announcers like Edward R. Murrow brought news of these and other events to Americans over the radio. Entertainment also came over the " wireless " in the form of mus ' C, drama and variety shows. The 1940s Radio Hour, presented in the Performing Arts Center on Feb. 5, was a combination of music and dance that recreated the radio variety shows of that era. The setting was the studios of radio station WOV in New York City ' s Hotel Astor. The musical began shortly before airtime, with the singers and musicians arriving at the WOV studios to prepare for the program. The live broadcast was a Christmas special featuring Johnny Cantone and his family of ars, who resurrected many songs from including " Chattanooga Choo Is Here to Stay, " " Ain ' t She Swee BONtever-popular " Boogie - Woogie Bugle BOy ot Company ' B ' .

" The audience, many of whom could appreciate the irony of the unfulfilled prophecy of the defunct auto maker, responded to the flashing " AP- PLAUSE " sign that might have prompted audiences in 1942. At one point, Biff Baker, a serviceman on leave and playing in the band, voiced his hope that the war would be over by Christmas of 1943. Following a rousing ver- sion of " Strike Up the Band, " Feddington concluded the show by reminding the au- dience of its patriotic duties: " Bye bye, and buy bonds!

The highlight was an acrobatic duet by two members of the company, Juy Auyang and Raul Trujillo. " Tensile Involvement " featured six dances during which long ribbons were attached at the top of the stage while the dancers, three on each side, held the ends diagonally across on the other side of the stage. The ribbons framed the dancers for solo performances. One dancer tangled his arms in the ribbons and struggled like a fly trying to escape a spider ' s web. " Count Down " was a busy dance. Five cardboard cylinders rolled back and forth across the stage, picking up and depositing dancers. The piece ended when the cylinders and dancers fell to the stage. Following two curtain calls, the comp was joined by Alwin Nikolais, the final call alone. by Linda fOnes " pening their fall season and the adoring eyes of those in atten- dance, the Austin Civic Ballet danced through a delightful program at the Performing Arts Center Oct. 9. The well- planned and enriching program consisted of a mixture of ethnic, classical and character 1701 A classic art more demanding than the punishing sport of football, ballet incorporates the tremendous strength, precision timing and explosive power of football, but directs it with style and grace into an expressive nonverbal communication. For one night only, Jan. 27, Austin was hit by a different kind of Canadian high than the north winds Canada ' s Royal Win- nipeg Ballet. The troupe ' s high energy and athletic prowess filled the Performing Arts Center with scintillating dance and a spirit of goodwill that seemed characteristic of rela- tions between the two countries. Ann Marie De Angelo and David Peregrine headlined the opening dance, the classical " Alegro Brilliante. " Displaying an expertise that comes from daily practice ses- sions, De Angelo and Peregrine laid rightful claim to their featured status. Though technically superior, their performance lacked the emotional sparkle that brought the other dances to life. Creating a smoky effect, dimmed lights bathed Julie Whittaker and Andre Lewis ly- ing together in the middle of the stage.

Wooley ' s fleet movements were lighter than air and breathtakingly precise. He demonstrated his polished skills with great success throughout the evening, becoming a at times expanded into leaps and lifts more indicative of the classical ballet style. Capturing the mood swings of family life, dancers expressed emotions of love, hate, envy, sorrow and sympathy in " Family Scenes " using supple bodies instead of dialogue.

Changing again, a dancing mime came onstage in the mini-dance, " Willie and the Hand Jive. " Willie, in white pants, bright suspenders and orange shirt was accompanied by a chorus of clapping rhythms. The troupe switched moods once more, this time to the sounds of " I Wanna Hold Your Hand.

The program continued with " Rhythmetron, " a powerful intermingling of classic and ethnic dance styles. Commis- sioned by the Dance Theater of Harlem, the three-part ballet represented an imaginative execution of a tribal ritual. Lighting effects and designs created by lighting artist Ed- ward Effron were effective as the set was splashed with pools of crimson lights in the shapes of flames. Sara Collier displayed her polished skills as a dancer, portraying the provocative priestess of the ritual. " The Rite " and the finale of the ballet brought out a large number of dancers all clad in flesh-toned leotards to perform a tribal dance of worship. The stage was ablaze with exciting hues of red, blue and green at different intervals within the number while the many dancing bodies, engulfed by the various colorful light rays, moved smoothly but at a frenzied pace to the stimulating musical score. The ballet seemed to please the audience as amazed " oohs " and " ahs " filled the Con- cert Hall. The special pride Austinites held for their own ballet company thundered forth as the curtain lowered. The reception was more than enough to prove that the Austin Civic Ballet ' s opening performance was a success. by Peggie Laser Dance 171 TROU The September air sparkled with the rhythm of the music, the beer and the celebration of Kappa Sigma ' s Texfest Blowout. Fiesta Gardens, with its two acres of fenced courtyard and bandstand, had pro- ved an ideal site for the event. Located just east of Interstate 35 and minutes away from Town Lake, the Gardens was eas y to find and was flanked by plenty of grassy park space in which to wander and escape the noise and crowds. So luring were the accom- modations that led to Kappa Sigma ' s choice of the Gardens for this party that President Jim Powell and the other members of the Delta Upsilon fraternity reserved the area for a benefit to be held on Oct. 1. All appearances indicated that an alter- native had been found for the typical Greek street party. Then the trouble began. As students began to file out from the Kappa Sigma party in the wee hours of Saturday morning, Sept. 24, the summer night was bristling with hostility. Rather than the crickets, the wind or talk from other departing guests they might have ex- in the GARDEN pected to hear, homebound partyers were greeted with racial slurs from groups of Hispanic males congregated in the parking lot. The heated talk turned into action, and the scene became what police described as a " large confrontation between whites and Hispanics " which required additional units on the scene. Four University of Texas students were treated and released from Brackenridge Hospital following the inci- dent, escaping serious injury after dangerously close calls. John Carpenter, liberal arts freshman, dove through the sunroof of a friend ' s car to escape his club and knife-wielding assailants, whom witnesses said were attacking in groups of five to 15. David Klendshoj, business sophomore, was " jumped from behind and dealt a three-inch gash to the head. " Yet, in the light of the attacks, police con- cern appeared negligible. Witnesses on the scene said officers did little to stop the beatings even though several arrived while they were still in progress. Speaking on behalf of the Austin Police Department, Sgt. John Cochran told Daily Texan reporter Jim- my McKenna, " Because of the large numbers involved, the probability of finding who assaulted who in this case is going to be slim to none. " Dissatisfied with the APD ' s handling of the situation, Delta Upsilon cancelled its planned garden party Fiesta style and filed instead for a street party permit. So much for Fiesta Gardens as an alternative. In addition to cancelling the benefit, DU President Powell addressed the Austin City Council during its Oct. 7 meeting. In his address, Powell criticized the APD for its apparent lack of concern and voiced his hopes that measures would be taken to make the Gardens safe for future use by campus organizations. Action taken by the council included a four-part proposal given by Parks and Recreation Department Director Leonard Ehrler calling for additional patrols and the presence of security guards during the cleanup period following activities. As the dust began to settle, the matter drifted from the campus consciousness. The Joe " King " Carrasco headlines on April 9 concert event at the Gardens. K-98 billed it " A Party Weekend. " . 172 Fiesta Gardens issues behind the outbreak of violence at Fiesta Gardens, however, weren ' t fully ex- plored by the media at the time. On the sur- face it was a matter of Mexican gangs beating whites. A racial issue. Violence for the sake of violence. The birth of that violence was much more profound. It wasn ' t just the issue of noise emanating from activities at the site, as APD community liaison Red Garcia had said. Perhaps City Council Member Larry Deuser hit closest to home when he said on-site parking " spills over for blocks and blocks and blocks. " Those blocks he mentioned in- cluded residential streets, driveways, even front yards. These East Austin residents, the majority of them Hispanic, experienced an invasion of their neighborhood, their homes, their privacy, each time a major event was booked at Fiesta Gardens. Though hardly justification for the September violence, the problem repeatedly created agitation among the residents. Accompanying each " invasion " was a measured amount of frustration and anger at the city administration. Purchased by the ci- ty in 1970 from private citizens who used the facility as a country club, Fiesta Gardens was made available, at a charge, for events rang- ing from company picnics to outdoor con- certs. This, according to Austin Parks and Recreation landscape architect David Turello, robbed neighborhood residents of what they considered to be a neighborhood park. " These folks have a very definite, strong sense of ' turf. ' When you try to put that many people in a residential neighborhood, it ' s like the cavalry coming in to occupy the reservation. There ' s bound to be some trouble. " As a " neighborhood " park, the Gardens ' Qd 4TH ANNUAL BEAT THE HELL OUT OF OU BAR-B-Q and BEER BUST Featuring Continuous Live Entertainment (Music) And Plenty of Cold COORS Beer And BAR-B-Q T.. kp: s or, Sale ALLEN S BOOTS SHEPLER ' S.

In its current state, the Festival Beach area ex- emplified the Germanic-Anglo concept of a park a passive meadowland environment. The Fiesta Gardens area, though, embraced the Spanish " plaza " idea, with the bandstand and surrounding concrete patio. Turello ' s suggestion for the alleviation of the park ' s problems came from his belief that an area be designed for the convenience of the citizens who use it the most. He pro- posed that the fence around the courtyard be removed to enlarge the plaza. Then, with the maintenance portion of the park con- verted to a Chicano cultural center, the area might become more exclusively a place for East Austin residents to meet. It wasn ' t until April that another major event was scheduled at Fiesta Gardens. Local radio station KHFI-FM (K-98) spon- sored a Joe " King " Carrasco Party Weekend there, featuring six acts and drawing a crowd that swelled to several thousand as evening fell and Carrasco played. Inside, with disc jockey Dave Jarrott handing out " Dumbutt Awards " for illegally-parked cars, that hot night in September seemed far away. Out- side, however, the cold stares of young Hispanics gathered around their cars couldn ' t help but elicit memories of the newspaper stories. To them, the issue was far from dead. by Michael A. Suiter Despite neighborhood tensions, University students enjoy the Fiesta Gardens festivities. Fiesta Gardens 173 Traditions Change, but the Spirit Remains While the " Horse in America " class has taken a back seat to computer science, curriculum is not the only change the years have affected at The University. For instance, what proper young lady of the 1890s would have ventured out in, ahem, sweatpants? Like I am sure. Bumping along in a squeaky buggy to the steady clippety-clop of a trusty steed as it plods over wooded trails near campus the perfect setting for a most pleasant outing in 1883. Since that time, however, dating habits of students at The University of Texas have undergone a dramatic evolution. Activities have changed, but there are some things that couples do in 1983 that their own grand- fathers and grandmothers did when they at- tended The University. Joe Saegert, who graduated in 1920, admitted that the greatest advantage of going on a date in a buggy was that the horses could always drive themselves. That allowed the astute gentleman to devote all of his atten- tion to entertaining the young lady with " brilliant conversation. " The main stumbling block, however, was the constant presence of a responsible chaperone. During UT ' s early years, couples would spend idle hours swimming in the chilly waters of Barton Spring, picnicking in the park or taking romantic rowboat rides on Lake McDonald. It was still like that in 1983 to some degree. If a student wanted to cool off in Barton Springs, he just had to make sure the water ' s bacteria count wasn ' t so high that the pool was closed. In 1911, Luther Stark had saved enough money to become the first student to have a car at school. Owning a car brought big changes in student dating habits. Young men lucky enough to own a car ex- perienced instant popularity especially among women students. Couples could travel around town faster and go farther on more secluded outings. Those who could not afford a car had the pleasant alternative of riding the trolley. A major streetcar line ran along the Drag and transported students on fun romps about town. Austin ' s streetcar made its last run in 1940. But for many years Trolley Parties had been a colorful, inexpensive way to throw a party. Around this time, many couples were seen walking hand in hand down the Drag to spend an evening either at the Varsity or Texas movie theaters. Of course, this was before the Texas Theater became the infamous X-rated film house. At movie theaters, students watched " moving pictures " and heard a " talkie " for a mere 10 or 20 cents. After the movies, couples walked down to Renfro ' s Rexall, a drugstore soda fountain at 2324 Guadalupe St. Throughout The University ' s first 100 years, sorority and fraternity activities played an important role in UT ' s dating game. The organiza- tions still have a system in which new pledges meet each other. Pledges also have big brothers and sisters to arrange their initial date. Although the Great Depression stifled UT social life and World War II put a damper on the partying mood, students in the early 1950s 174 UT Evolution reaped the benefits of post-war prosperity. Couples rocked around the clock at sock-hops in such local haunts as the Tower, located on the corner of Riverside and Congress. Mobility was not impaired during the ' 50s as dusty old Model Ts were traded in for shiny new hot rods. Greased back hair and cruising down the Drag were signs of a cool ' 50s dude. The ' 50s were supplanted by mini-skirts, long hair and the turbulant ' 60s. Students who were part of the " in crowd " often went to the hard rock clubs like New Orleans Club and the Vulcan Gas Company. That decade was also a time of drastic changes in young peoples ' dating habits. The women ' s liberation movement had filtered down to The University and young women began to ask men out. Some girls burned their bras publicly to protest sexual discrimination. As far as dating habits were concerned, " stayin 1 alive " in the 1970s meant partying away that " Saturday night fever " at clubs like Billy Shakespeare ' s on Sixth Street and the Greenhouse on Guadalupe Street. The repetitive disco beat became a ' 70s mania. But later on John Travolta shed his white " Saturday Night Fever " attire for the " Urban Cowboy " costumes that soon hit the nightclub scene. In Levi ' s and boots, UT partyers danced the traditional two-step and cotton- eyed joe. And some brave souls even dared to ride the mechanical bull. This bull bucked like a real bull, giving city wranglers a chance to display their machismo to the party crowds. Time has altered many dating habits. But a long-standing tradition remained. That was, every fall when classes began, students were struck by orange fever. Longhorn football games brought couples in droves to fill Memorial Stadium ' s student section. The day began with a UT football game and ended only after several post -game bashes. Sixth Street was a popular student hangout. Austin ' s own version of New Orleans ' Bourbon Street offered quality entertainment as couples played the dating game. Dating in the ' 80s ranged from taking a trip to Margaritaville at Jorge ' s, to a tour of the comedy world with the gang at Esther ' s Follies. Sports-minded couples also could enjoy sporting events via Madison Square Garden ' s big television screen as they drank the bar ' s delightful spirits. The variety of Austin music and dance steps made for many happy Longhorn feet in the ' 80s. Musical styles ranged from Cardi ' s earth- shaking rock ' n roll to Party ' s hot disco beat. For the New Wave crowd, Club Foot and the Continental Club were popular stops. Couples still gathered at Scholz ' s Beer Garten at 1607 San Jacinto to celebrate Longhorn victories or meet friends and relax after a barrage of tests. Couples also could still enjoy the tasty concoctions and spicy recipes of the Mexican village known as Jaime ' s. Since the days of horse and buggy and a UT campus patterned with quiet, tree-lined paths, the horse has become horsepower and the trails paved with asphalt. Time and places have changed. But UT students play the same old dating game. After 100 years of University history, romance hasn ' t lost its allure. by Peggy Laser UT Evolution 175 For clothes conscious UT students, every day began with a trip through a closet of " disposable personalities " in the guise of con- temporary fashion. The Izod and Polo shirts, leather Topsiders, colorful Mexican dresses and flashy warmup suits all helped her to achieve the " look of the ' 80s " comfor- table, versatile, athletic. Through 10 decades of campus life at The University, students have allowed clothes to do more than decorate their bodies. Col- legiate dress has reflected the attitudes of the era in which they appeared. At the turn of the century, women at the young University wore simple, masculine shirtwaists, ties and jackets freeing them from the corset and encouraging their participation in the bustle of college life. The men found baggy knickers and derby hats ideal for romping about the 40 acres. Unlike the weighty issues of nuclear disarmament and draft registra- tion which faced college students during the ' 80s, society of the teens was more concerned with preserving the sterling virtues of its young women. According to UT historian Margaret Berry, short, slit skirts and high-topped shoes, were condemned as indecent. Clothing made of silk and satin, as well as elaborate piled hairstyles, such as the pom- padour, were deemed inappropriate to the University lifestyle. During the ' 20s, women gained the right to vote, and celebrated by bobbing their hair and wearing tomboy skirts and men ' s shirts. It was many a UT woman ' s wish to be a naughty " flapper " and Charleston the night away with her favorite " sheik. " Male students showed the jazz age spirit by donning bellbottomed trousers and sweaters with friends ' autographs on them. And yes, a few men did wear raccoon coats to those ' 20s UT football games. Tight college budgets were not confined to the ' 80s. Students of the ' 30s were touched by the Great Depression and their attire reflected this economic lull. Women wore conservative hemlines which fell midway between their knees and their ankles ' while sturdy, flat shoes were favored. For fraternity dances and the popular " tea dances, " for- mals were long and tight-fitting, revealing every curve. Some men wore suits with suspenders and bow ties while others wore medium- width ties. As the Depression ended and WWII made headlines, UT students of the ' 40s walked to class in style. Skirt lengths were about the same as during the ' 30s, though not quite as tight. Most women wore shirts with ribbons or scarves tied around their necks and saddle, shoes which were practical and comfortable. The hair length had fallen to the shoulders for women while men continued to favor short hair. Evening gowns still fitted in the bodice but had full skirts. Men ' s suits consisted of baggy trousers and wild, colorful prints. During the ' 50s, Elvis was rocking and students were bopping around the West Mall. Stereotypical sex roles of the ' 50s were reflected by the exaggerated femininity of women ' s apparel. The lavish " southern belle " formal seen at school functions demanded an hour- glass figure, achieved by the use of waist cinchers, girdles and crinolines. The attempt at femininity was apparent in everyday apparel as well. Luxurious, cashmere sweaters were popular, as well as demure Peter Pan collars and pearls as a ladylike accent. Men ' s clothing was conservative, dominated by starched white button-collar shirts, ac- cented by thin ties. Men wore colorful Madras plaid shirts to class, as well as chino pants and buck or saddle shoes. The ' 60s was a decade of change and fashions reflected this change. In the early years, female students emulated Jackie Kennedy ' s simple elegance and males sported a crew cut, clean-cut appearance. Drug [Catherine Range ' s ornate earrings and punk hairstyle are examples of new wave fashion. experimentation, campus demostrations, peace marches and the sexual revolution ushered in the era of turbulence reflected by psychadelic or " mod " clothing. The anorexic " Twiggy " figure favored by women was best displayed by miniskirts in " groovy " prints and " far-out " col- ors. Teased, flipped hair and heavy eye make-up were in vogue, as well as turtlenecks and white go-go boots. Men abandoned crew cuts and adopted the " Fab Four ' s " longer locks look. Blue jeans, badge of the youth culture, were favored by students of both sexes. In the ' 70s, denim became high fashion and everything from purses to suits were made out of this durable fabric. Students on campus found that hip-hugger, big-belled jeans sporting " vote " and " peace " patches were comfortable to wear to classes. The unisex look was manifested by hair styles, long and straight for men and women. The beards and mustaches popular with men of the day aided in distinguishing between the sexes. Vests, hotpants, beads and head- bands were big. The ethnic look, Indian blouses and leather sandals, reflected the Eastern cultures and were easily procured on the Drag. The popular television series, M A S H, conveyed the cynical anti- military pacifism which prevailed at UT during the ' 70s. The late ' 70s ushered in the era of the Urban Cowboy on the UT campus. Wrangler jeans, boots and cowboy hats were common sights. Women wore " prairie " skirts when they were tired of their favorite pair of jeans. The natural healthy look seemed to be the ideal of the early ' 80s. The attire in Gregory Gym and in the classrooms became synonymous as students opted to wear their favorite sweat clothes to both exercise and learn. The " preppy " revival of the most conventional American style ' s of the ' 50s and ' 60s reflected the conservatism of the ' 80s dress- for-success crowd. As the social gap between the Greeks and non-greeks on campus continued, so did the battle between the Polo and the Izod shirts. Ralph Lauren polo emblems and Izod crocodiles were standard trademarks for both male and female Greek clothing. Women also wore Mexican dresses in many colors. 176 UT Evolution .v. To top it all off, a new clothing fad washed up with the " new wave " music trend. Mini-skirts reappeared, while safety pins, leather and nohawks allowed individuals to express themselves. During its first century, the UT campus had been an academic nicrocosm of the larger, changing real world. From the prim shirt- waist of the turn-of-the-century debutante to the straight laced -nonogrammed cashmere crowd of the ' 80s, UT students consistently eflected the attitudes of their times. Ranging from " Cicero ' s Tusculan Disputations " and " Cotton Marketing " of the late 1800s and early 1900s to " History of Rock and Roll " and " The Origins and Consequences of Nuclear Warfare " of the early 1980s, UT curriculum over the past 100 years had evolved to meet the interests and needs of its students and the times. In 1883, The University officially opened as a school of higher learning, providing for its 218 students the essentials of a liberal arts education in a single wing of one building. Students studied subjects that had been part of the college curriculum dating back to the classical age. As part of their core re- quirements, students took philosophy, Sandy Ferris was caught in 1948 wearing only bubbles at the AD Pi House The car was the ultimate tool for dating since its use became prevalent in the 1950s. Here one young man courts his young lady in the comfort of his convertible. UT Evolution 177 mathematics, English, history, a foreign language (ancient or modern) and a science. Students ' bookshelves were lined with such titles as Sweet ' i Anglo-Saxon Reader, Green ' s Short History of the English People and Plato ' s Pythagoras. After completion of these basic courses, students pursued their areas of interest, graduating from UT with either a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Letters or a Bachelor of Science. As The University grew in size, the number of colleges and courses offered increased. Over the next 30 years, The University added the College of Pharmacy (1893), the College of Engineering (1894), the School of Education (1909), the Graduate School (1910) and the School of Business Administration (1923). In the newly formed business school, courses of particular economic concern to the state such as cotton marketing were offered along with the more conventional business classes, like accounting and statistics. In 1935, in order to stem, as Arts and Humanities Dean H. T. Parlin put it, " the how-to-do-it aspects of college, " the Plan II program was created as an interdisciplinary studies program stressing the liberal arts. Plan II students never declared a major, instead taking a required set of liberal arts courses and then, like those first students at The University, concentrating in an area of interest. Two years later, the College of Fine Arts began, separating the departments of Art, Drama and Music from the College of Arts and Sciences. ROTC classes started at The University during World War II to help the armed forces. Over the last 40 years, The University has kept pace with the sweep of technology and social change by increasing and varying its curriculum. In keeping with technology in the 1960s, The University started courses in computer science (1966), and offered the latest study of radio, television and film, which was included in the School of Communication which opened in 1965. Out of the social upheaval of that era, ethnic studies programs like Mexican-American Studies and Afro-American Studies grew. Students were still able to take the traditional liberal arts courses offered 100 years earlier. Classes in Plato and the history of the Renaissance coexisted with courses as offbeat as " The Horse in America, " as technologically current as " Computer Systems Architecture " and as contemporary as " Nuclear Warfare.

' 178 UT Evolution The Silver Dollar had nickel beer night and Jorge ' s had its infamous margarita. Although these places had developed a reputation in re- cent years, some places like Mount Bonnell, Scholz ' s and Barton Springs had been fre- quented by Longhorns since the founding of The University of Texas. While " Happy Days " had Inspiration Point and West Point had Flirtation Walk, The University of Texas had Mount Bon- nell. The 775-foot peak had been the subject of many legends and a favorite haunt of trysting students for decades. General Sam Houston said it must have been the spot to which Satan took Jesus to tempt him. Many legends concerning the much frequented peak in- volved lovers leaping over the steep cliffside. A favorite University legend had it that when a young couple climbed the summit the first time, they would fall in love. When they climbed it a second time, they would become engaged and shortly after their third ascent, they would be married. A 1914 issue of the Alcalde carried an article by Robert Penn, a 1910 graduate, protesting the " cedar post fence " at the foot of Mount Bonn ell to keep people off the plateau. He said that Mount Bonnell was a necessity for any romance between UT students and offered some questionable statistics. He claimed that at that time there were 2,954 men and 1,443 women who attended UT but were still unmarried. In most cases their " single wretchedness " was because they failed to " properly propitiate " Mount Bonnell. He said he was unmarried because he failed to go trysting on Mount Bonnell. Univer- sity students of the 1980s did not need to fear such a fate because Mount Bonnell was given to Travis County in 1939 by Frank Convert Sr. with the stipulation that it always remain a public park. If visitors did not lose their breath climbing the 97 steps to the top, then the view of Lake Austin from one side and Austin, with the University Tower and the dome of the Capitol from the other would surely take it away. -- fl Bored Martyrs help preserve Scholz Garten ' s festive atmosphere. After making the descent from Mount Bonnell, a thirsty UT stu- dent might have visited Scholz Garten to whet his whistle. Scholz ' s, which claimed to be Texas ' most historic restaurant and beer garden, was established in 1866 by August Scholz, a German immigrant, on the 1600 block of San Jacinto, very near The University. The Scholz ' s of 1982 looked much like it always had. The original front dining room was decorated with a mural depicting the mountains of Ger- many. German stereotype characters of a short, paunchy " Herren " and a buxom, blond " Damen " decorated the men ' s and women ' s restrooms, respectively. The bar, dating from 1866, was crafted by im- migrant German craftsmen and was distinguished with a three-foot German beer stein. The north dining room, which contained pictures of all the UT football teams since the 1893 undefeated championship team, the back room and Scholz ' s biggest attraction the garden were added over the years. After the 1982 student government elec- tions, Hank the Hallucination, write-in candidate for president, held his victory party at Scholz ' s. On any given night, stateworkers, political officeholders, students and professors could be found drinking, eating and visiting at the famous restaurant and bar. Scholz ' s was designated a Texas historic landmark in 1966 and a national historic place in 1979. It was recognized by the 59th State Legislature as " a gathering place for Texans of discernment, taste, culture and erudition. " Another gathering place for students seeking refuge from the rigors of school was Barton Springs. On a warm spring day, the people mis- sing from their 2 p.m. English classes were probably at the 100 by 100 foot natural spring-fed pool located at Zilker Park. It was fed by 17 to 42 million gallons of icy water along the Balcones Fault, averaging a temperature of 69 degrees. When Austin came into possession of Bar- ton Springs in 1917, it was already a long-time swimming hole. Before the dressing rooms were built, swimmers would dress behind trees or in buggies. Around the turn of the century some of the first female swimmers braved barbed wire, mesquite and gunshots on their way to their first swim in the icy waters. Before World War II, the UT swim team held meets there. There had been many changes since the early days of Barton Springs. Flooding and improvements had changed the face of the water hole. Women ' s bathing suits had gone from skirts to the knee to bikinis to the occasional topless suit. Entrance fees had gone up, but Barton Springs still remained popular through floods, droughts and high bacteria counts. Students had affectionately named Barton Springs " the summer annex of UT. " After spending their days swimming at Barton Springs or hiking at Mount Bonnell, a student in 1980 dressed up and hit Sixth Street to enjoy Austin ' s best nightlife. Bars and restaurants lined the streets while street corner musicians and mimes entertained the crowds. Esther ' s Follies continued to offer hilarious comedy skits that used the Sixth Street crowds as a backdrop. Sixth Street has been compared to New Orleans ' Bourbon Street. Live jazz played at Balboa Cafe and Toulouse served the best Hurricanes this side of the Sabine. Maggie Maes catered to a different crowd and served imported and domestic beers. Sixth Street also had a unique shopping mall called Savoy Court where slinky lingerie and unconventional greeting cards were available. On the other side of Congress Ave., Katz ' s Deli offered New York-style gourmet food. No matter what activities UT students found enjoyable, Sixth Street had something for everyone. In 100 years there was bound to be a great deal of change in the students of The University of Texas. Clothes styles ranged from long dresses and suits to blue jeans, hair lengths had gone from short to long and long to short and dancing trends had gone from ballroom waltzes to the jitterbug to punk, but students ' appreciation for certain hangouts around Austin had not changed. There was no place like Barton Springs for swimming and sunning, no place like Scholz ' s for drinking and discussing and no place like Mount Bonnell for reflec- ting and romancing.

PERRY: THE FIRST BLACK EVER APPOINTED TO THE ACADEMIC RANK OF ASSISTANT PROFESSOR AT UT-AUSTIN, A FORMERLY ALL-WHITE UNIVERSITY. ISO Academics ACADEMICS Edited by Wesley Burress Ervin S. Perry, First of a Kind ' Ervin Perry was a brilliant builder who built with much more than material things; he was an effective builder of Christian brotherhood and race relations. ' aking a mark on The University that would never be forgotten, Ervin Sewell Perry was named to the UT faculty in September 1964. He became the first black faculty member of a formerly all white southern university. Perry, who died of cancer at age 34, was honored in 1975 when the Perry- Castaneda Library was named in his honor and Dr. Carlos E. Castaneda ' s honor. The library stands as a constant reminder " of The University ' s commitment to educational opportunities for all Texans. " Perry was born in 1936 on a farm near Coldsprings, Texas, an East Texas rural backwater where the Big Thicket met the old plantation country. Here, Perry and his twin brother Mervin were inspired by their father and mother to extend their education beyond the high school level. " Ervin Perry was born to a remarkable family which never complained of its color or condition, but moved from one op- portunity to another, " said Richard Morehead, a reporter for the Dallas Morning News. " Because they were black and poor, perhaps the Perrys had a more difficult time getting educated than do most children. Yet each became a leading citizen through perseverance and application of his talents and training, " Morehead said. All six children of Willie and Edna Perry ob- tained at least one degree from Prairie View A M. Perry received his bachelor ' s degree in civil engineering in 1956. Following graduation, he served as an officer in the U.S. Army for two years. After completing his tour of military ser- vice, Perry decided to pursue a teaching career at Southern University in Baton Rouge. In the summer of 1959, Perry entered graduate school at UT. The following year, Perry moved to Prairie View A M to become assistant professor of civil engineering. After marrying Jean Alfred, a registered nurse and faculty member in nursing at Prairie View A M, Perry resumed his graduate study at UT during the summer of I960. He received his master ' s degree in civil engineering in June 1961. After completing a dissertation in materials Young Perry participates science and structural mechanics, Perry received his doctorate in June 1964. In the fall of 1964, Perry ' s name made headlines across the state when he was named assistant professor of civil engineering at UT Austin. Although widely sought by other nationally ranked colleges of engineering, Perry elected to stay in Austin. A black man in Cold- springs joked about Perry rejecting a $14,000-a-year job at a university in another state to accept an $8,000 position at The University. " Man, that Ervin oughta go back to school, " he said. In a Dallas Morning News article, Morehead explained that " those who know the Perrys aren ' t surprised. This family learned long ago that it isn ' t how much, but what one does with his money and ability. " Perry ' s ability was reflected in his noteworthy contributions to The University of Texas and the Austin community. Perry devoted much time and effort to the Ebenezer Baptist Church. He was also active in the Austin Kiwanis Club, United Fund of Austin, Travis Association for the Blind and served as a faculty adviser for the campus organiza- tion, Negro Association for Progress. During the 1967-68 school term, Perry took leave of his UT posi- tion to serve as a Fellow in the prestigious Ford Foundation Academic Administration Internship Program. As a participant in the program, he was an assistant to the president of Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia. Perry was recognized for scholarship and research when he was accepted as a member of engineering honor societies Chi Epsilon and Tau Beta Pi. In 1966, Prairie View A M honored Perry with its Distinguished Graduate Award. In 1970, he was named the " Young Engineer of the Year " by the National Society of Professional Engineers. " Ervin Perry was a brilliant builder who built with much more than material things; he was an effective builder of Christian Brotherhood and race relations who built his own life according to God ' s plan as he understood it, " remarked the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church at Perry ' s funeral service. In less than 35 years, Perry built a pathway for bridging the gap between races and breaking racial barriers that would endure in the future. by Wesley Burress in a game of baseball. Academics 181 182 Permanent University Fund PUF: The Magic University Fund Carl Cromwell and his family lived deep in the desolate flat land of Reagan county. As the sole driller at the Santa Rita well, Cromwell had been drilling at the " Saint of the Impossible " for more than two years. But the well, owned by Frank Pickrell and Haymon Krupp of the Texon Oil and Gas Land Company, continued to hit limestone. Then one morning in 1923, Mrs. Cromwell was making breakfast when she heard a hissing noise outside. She peaked around the back door, expecting to find a snake, and saw oil and gas vapors spewing from the well. Santa Rita finally struck oil. At that time no one realiz- ed how much this " black gold " would affect higher education in Texas. " A university of the first class " began in 1836 with the constitution of the Republic of Texas. The republic then laid aside one million acres of land to go to UT " for the endowment, maintenance, and sup- port of said university and its branches. " In 1839, Mirabeau B. Lamar, president of the Republic of Texas, established the Permanent University Fund for The University of Texas and Texas A M, which was originally a branch of UT. In the 100 years that followed PUF ' s founding, however, only cattle grazed on the land covering 19 West Texas counties. Not until UT professor of geology, Johan A. Udden, submitted a 1916 report on the land ' s potential mineral resources, did the UT system Board of Regents think about speculating for oil. After drilling began in 1921, the Santa Rita No. 1 began spouting oil two years later. The original well was moved to the northwest corner of Trinity Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard in 1958. A more lucrative reminder of Santa Rita ' s success has been the Available University Fund. AUF was income from the investment of PUF. This " sacred dragon, " PUF, consisted in 1982 of an estimated $1.8 billion and 2.1 million acres of land. In 1982, The University received $90 million and Texas A M $45 million from AUF. As provided for in the constitution, PUF was divided between these two state universities, two-thirds going to UT, Permanent University Fund 183 and one-third to A M. In order to insure the future of Texas higher education, PUF could not be spent. PUF ' s importance was described by L. D. Haskew, a UT vice presi- dent during the 1950s, as an investment in the future of higher educa- tion. Haskew said, " If the University ' s Permanent Fund were ever to be spent, it would be like the father who carelessly spent all of the money out of his children ' s trust funds and left them penniless. " AUF was developed through the UT System ' s investment in both short and long term securities, like treasury bills, U.S. bonds and com- mon stock. Following a Texas Supreme Court ruling, the principle in- vestment of PUF was: oil, gas and water royalties; mineral lease rentals and lease bonuses. PUF ' s interest was computed by this total figure. According to the state Supreme Court ruling, only the return invest- ment of PUF could be spent. This return investment was the Available University Fund. In addition to paying for UT Austin and A M ' s education and operations, AUF financed construction, remodeling and improvements. This fund paid for university building programs since state law forbids legislative appropriations for such projects. Initially AUF mainly covered day-to-day operating expenses. But, as operating costs and enrollment increased, The University faced the dilemma of " robbing Peter to pay Paul. " When legislative appropria- tions were not enough, The University paid their costs of operations at the expense of building programs. The problem of inadequate funds was solved when both PUF and AUF grew as a result of bonuses, rentals and royalties in the West Texas property. The money with which oil companies paid for drill leases was called bonuses. Companies also rented leases that usually ran for five years. Another source of PUF ' s growth was royalties, made up of a certain percentage of the company ' s profit from its oil or gas holdings on this university land. As a result, the growth of the PUF en- dowments made the investment expand. For several years other state colleges and universities threatened to divide PUF. Not even the branch campuses of UT and A M had a share in the benefits of the PUF endowments. Then in 1983, the 68th Texas Legislature faced the problem of how to give these state sup- ported universities and colleges a part of PUF or a similar endowment. The legislators had to choose between extending PUF among UT and A M branches or allocating remaining funds for state colleges and universities not covered by PUF. An overwhelming majority of the House passed a resolution in February 1983, which gave the branch universities a share in PUF- generated revenue. As a result, Prairie View A M, a branch of the Texas A M System, would receive an annual $6 million from UT ' s share of the AUF. This would continue until 1993, when the Texas A M System would begin providing Prairie View A M its share. The House resolution also provided for an endowment fund of $75 million for non-PUF schools from state general revenues. Once the resolution had passed the Senate, then Texas voters would decide on the fate of non-PUF state colleges and universities funding. PUF was originally established as an exclusive fund for UT and A M systems because, as UT Chancellor E. D. Walker said, " Although the dollar amount of the Available Fund may seem large, it is actually not enough to adequately meet the demands of 37 schools of higher learn- ing. Over the years, the income from the Available Fund has enabled us to build graduate and research facilities at The University of Texas at Austin, which are attracting top scholars and researchers from around the world. The Available Fund is the foundation upon which a great university has been built. Destroy that foundation and you destroy the greatness as well, " Walker said. PUF, the magic university fund, has insured the future of Texas higher education by providing for the potential of academic ex- cellence at UT-Austin. by Wesley Burress and Julie Del Barto SCHLEICHER University of Texas land, stretching across 19 West Texas counties and comprising 133 ranches, has a surface area that totals 2.1 million acres. 184 Permanent University Fund Texas Blanco This is a Grape Story When the University of Texas System decided in the early 1970s to undertake a conservation and land utilization program of West Texas lands, the University Lands-Surface Interests Of- fice proposed to increase agricultural income from University lands and attempted to stabilize the area ' s agricultural in- come by diversifying the number of crops grown on those lands. Of the 2.12 million acres of land, more than 100,000 acres had suffi- cient water quality and quantity to attempt a perennial crop develop- ment using drip irrigation techniques. Crops such as almonds, apples, guayule, jojoba, kiwi fruit, olives and walnuts were planted, before the 12-acre experimental vineyard near Van Horn produced a viable crop in 1975. Additional two-acre experimental vineyards were planted near Bakersfield in 1976 and Fort Stockton in 1977. At the end of 1982, ad- ditional acreage had been planted in the Bakersfield area which resulted in a total of 29.5 acres of experimental vineyards and 320 acres of commercial vineyards near Escondido. The major objectives of the experimental vineyards were to deter- mine if commercial quality grapes could be grown in West Texas, what group varieties were best suited for the region and what cultural practices were most adaptive for each variety in the area. The results indicated that many vinifera varieties of grapes, those that yield wine, could be grown on University land in West Texas. An experimental winemaking program designed to determine if Crops such as almonds, apples, guayule, jojoba, kiwi fruit, olives and walnuts were planted before the 12-acre experimental vineyard near Van Horn produced a viable crop in 1975. commercial quality wine could be produced from University grown grapes and to learn what wine-making practices might be unique to West Texas began in 1978. Indicating that a quality commercial wine could be developed from grapes grown in Texas, the final results of the program favored a light, white wine such as Chenin blanc, French Colombard or Emerald Riesling rather than a red wine as having the greatest potential for success in the consumer market. The University of Texas System wanted an integrated vineyard winery development program. The System preferred to lease the vineyards on West Texas lands and to be a lessor of winery facilities. The UT System refused to be an operator of a winery or hold any interest in a winery operation. The System felt that the vineyard operator and wine company had to have a mutual interest in the vineyard and winery for the future success of the vineyard winery pro- gram. " The University of Texas System will consider any and all pro- posals for vineyard and or winery development and or operation on University lands and is willing to negotiate any and all details that are consistent with legal and financial constraints on the University of Texas System, " said E. D. Walker, chancellor of the UT System. With a 960+ acre vineyard winery development, the UT System had proven that it was ready to work with the private sector in developing a commercial grape and wine industry on UT land, -by Wesley Burress Texas Blanco 185 Centennial Endowments The goal was to create a university of the first class. Actually, it was more than a goal it was a mandate. Ashbel Smith, president of the Board of Regents, stated it in 1882: " Here are the words of the Con- stitution; they are clear in meaning and explicit; they command the Legislature; they express the will of the people of Texas . . . The peo- ple of Texas in the Constitution ordain the establishment of a universi- ty of the first class as solemnly as they ordain the establishment of the courts of justice, of common schools and other institutions of society. There is no open policy; the Constitution has decided the matter. " To carry out this mandate to create a university of the first class, UT need- ed to have quality faculty, students and resources. In order to get these, UT sought private gifts to create new endowment funds. Private contributions had always been an integral part of the growth of UT. In the 1920s, a fundraising campaign made the construction of Memorial Stadium possible. In the 1930s and 1940s, the construction of the Texas Union, Gregory Gym, Anna Hiss Gym and Hogg Auditorium were all assisted by private donations. In fact, since 1958, private gifts to The University had totaled more than $200 million, ac- cording to a University Development Office publication. On Sept. 1, 1980, The University of Texas at Austin began a pro- gram to acquire 300 new endowments divided under three programs: 100 for New Endowed Faculty Positions, 100 for New Endowed Scholarships and Fellowships for Students and 100 for New En- dowments Other Purposes. The endowments were to provide funds with which The University could attract and retain a quality faculty, enhance the quality of the student body and increase its resources in providing the best instruc- tion and research tools. Donations under the New Endowments Other Purposes program, for example, would assist in hundreds of areas of need, such as research, library and art acquisition, art exhibition, recreational sports, student activities and special equipment. The nam- ing and purposes of the funds were determined by donors in consulta- tion with The University. Donations for the Centennial Endowed Scholarships and Fellowships for Students would, according to the UT Development Office publication, " bring to Austin more of the best young minds and recognize them while they are students. " Under this program, a donor could establish a Centennial Endowed Presidential Scholarship by donating a minimum of $25,000. This gift would provide $1,500 an- nually to a deserving undergraduate or graduate student. Another type of scholarship, the Centennial Endowed Scholarship ($10,000) provid- ed less money but still filled an important need. The characteristics and name of the scholarship, according to Valerie Dunnam, assistant director of development at the UT Development Office, were deter- mined by the donor in consultation with The University. " For exam- ple, the donor may specify the scholarship to be based on need or academic achievement or both. He would also specify the particular field of study, " she said. The most exciting of the three Centennial endowment programs, was the endowed faculty positions that resulted from legislative ac- tion. This action of The University ' s appropriations bill of the 1981 Legislature greatly aided future funding efforts. According to the UT Development Office publication, the Board of Regents created the Centennial Teachers and Scholars Program, which became effective Sept. 1, 1981, and which set aside $20 million from the income of The University ' s Permanent Fund to match any private gifts that created new endowed faculty positions. Dr. Robert King, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, explained in concrete terms, " Until a year ago, a per- son could come and say, ' I ' m interested in economics and I ' d like to endow a professorship. Here ' s $100,000, ' and that was it. Now the regents have announced a matching program where they would match donations on a one-to-one basis, so they would match that $100,000 and set up another professorship. The University has been successful with this beyond its fondest dreams. Whereas in 1975, the Liberal Arts College had a total of three endowed professorships, totaling $300,000, we now have in excess of $5 million. " Sue Leander of the UT Development Office agreed. " What this matching has created, in ef- fect, is a two-for-one sale, so we are getting most of the donations in that area, " she said. What exactly does it mean to have an endowed faculty position? " In the case of all these endowments, " Dunnam said, " the money is in- vested and the income is spent, so that it exists perpetually. " The en- dowed income, in effect, was added to the teachers ' base salaries and functioned as a supplement, to be used for secretarial expenses, travel and publication costs. Recipients of endowments could be current members of the UT faculty or not. " Some of the endowments are given to people who are already on the campus, and some are used to bring people from other institutions, " said Dunnam. " So, you ' re rewarding people either on the faculty for outstanding work, or rewarding someone who has an outstanding reputation by being able to offer them more money, " she added. Dr. Kenneth W. Tolo, associate vice president for Academic Af- fairs, explained how recipients were chosen. " If the position is associated with a specific department, the chairman of the department would recommend a person to the dean who would then submit that to the President and Board of Regents. If the position was more general, say all-school, it would be the dean who would make the in- itial recommendation, " he said. Jn 186 Centennial Endowments The endowed faculty positions were established through the UT Development Office and appointed through the Office of Academic Affairs. There were five different types of endowed faculty positions. The Centennial Endowed Chair ($500,000) created a named chair in the scool or college of the donor ' s choice. According to the UT Develop- ment Office publication, it provided a significant supplement to the :ate appropriated salary of the holder of the chair. While the Centen- ial Endowed Professorship, ($100,000) was given to a full professor, ie Centennial Teaching Fellowship ($50,000) was given to outstand- ing but less senior members of the faculty. The Centennial Visiting Professorship ($50,000) brought distinguished scholars to UT for tem- porary residence, and the Centennial Endowed Lectureship ($20,000) was used to bring distinguished lecturers for brief but valuable visits to campus. Overall, the Centennial Teachers and Scholars Program had been progressing marvelously. " By the end of the Centennial, " Leander said, " we will have more than doubled the number of chairs at The University, doubled the number of professorships and more than doubled the number of lectureships.

' Box Commands UT ' s Renovation Projects " Since the beginning of the Centennial, we have endowed our first chair, first pro- fessorship, first visiting professorship and first lectureship. Now we have or are about to get 16 endowments and before the Centennial we started with nothing, " Dean Harold Box of the School of Architecture said of the anniversary year at UT. " We want to complete the endowments for our teaching positions that we have pro- posed and create scholarships and fellowships for study in architecture here and for our new European study program, " said Box. In its third year, the European study program was held only in the summer at Oxford University and Box hoped to be able to expand it into a year-round program. This program was just one of many pro- jects initiated by the school since Box ' s ar- rival in 1976. He was the impetus behind the renovation of Sutton Hall, which with Goldsmith Hall and Battle Hall comprised the School of Architecture complex. As of fall 1982, Sutton housed the school ' s ad- ministrative and faculty offices, classrooms and three design studios. More than $3 million went into the renovation which restored Sutton to its original condition. Renovators had the advantage of using designing architect Cass Gilbert ' s original drawings for Sutton, first completed in 1917. Gilbert also designed Battle Hall while Paul Cret designed Goldsmith Hall. Plans for renovation of both buildings were in the works and these restorations " will make it (the school) the finest facility in the United States, " Box said. Battle Hall housed the Architectu Library, one of the four largest in the coun try and growing rapidly. The newl established Southwest Center for the Stud of American Architecture and the Architec tural Drawings Collection were also house in Battle. Box said these were two project he had worked on that tied into othe centers at Columbia University, Tulane University and the Art Institute of Chicago " There is no architecture library to matcl it, " Box said. " This one is really special. " The School of Architecture was rated fourth in the nation in a recent survey " Everything is built toward our being a to] school. It ' s an inevitable position, " Box said. by Kristi D. Arnolc 188 Architecture : ARCHITECTURE UT Exhibit Features Texas Courthouse Although the name James Riely Gordon might not have been familiar to most Tex- ans, it was definitely well-known among ar- chitecture students. Gordon was renowned for his Texas courthouses which contributed greatly to 19th-century Texas architecture. Between 1889 and 1901 Gordon designed 15 Texas courthouses. He also worked on many public buildings, residences and commercial structures in Texas and in New York. On Jan. 21, 1983, an exhibit featuring Gor- don ' s courthouses opened in the School of Architecture ' s Goldsmith Hall. " This exhibit was generated as a Centennial exhibit, " said Susan Hoover, coordinator of the exhibition. " It ' s one of the first events of the Centennial year, " she added. The opening of the exhibition early in the Centennial year, marked the conclusion of a tremendous amount of preparation. A grant from Houston Endowment Inc. provided funds to buy Gordon ' s 12,000 to 14,000 drawings. The drawings had to be listed, dated, catalogued and verified. The exhibi- tion took almost a year to coordinate, with work beginning in April 1982. Lila Stillson, curator of the Architectural Drawings Col- lection; Molly Malone Chesney, guest curator; and Hoover spent many hours organizing the presentation. The major exhibit pieces in the show were Gordon ' s drawings of Texas courthouses. The drawings allowed " us to see the court- houses as they were first viewed by the coun- ty commissioners and presented to the public as an image for the future, " said Chesney. Gordon ' s courthouses were con- sidered outstanding examples of 19th- century architecture because they illustrated his mastery of composition and his ability to manipulate architectural details on a small scale, according to Chesney. Many were designed in the Richardsonian-Romanesque style, a major East Coast form. Of the buildings documented, 12 still served as courthouses in 1983. Some of the finest were the courthouses in San Antonio, Waxahachie, Decatur, La Grange and Vic- toria. In 1901, Texas suffered the loss of a great architect when Gordon moved to New York. Fortunately, many of Gordon ' s works remained. by Kay Ghahremani Tjie Ellis County Courthouse drawing is part of the Architecture Centennial Exhibition which features the works of James Riely Gordon, Texas courthouse architect. Atchitecture 189 BUSINESS Cunningham Assumes Business Deanshi " The business school has a great deal of momentum on a whole series of fronts. We ' ve got to keep that momentum rolling and continue on our march, so to speak, to greatness, " said William Cunningham, acting dean of the College of Business Administra- tion. " I ' m particularly proud of our achievements in accounting, " he continued. The undergraduate accounting program at The University was ranked No. 2 in the country according to a recent survey. Among the top 20 programs, LIT ranked behind only the University of Illinois and ahead of other institutions such as Michigan, Ohio State, Southern California, Penn State and California-Berkeley. A report of the survey appeared in the December issue of Public Accounting Report, a monthly newslet- ter of the profession. A new Graduate School of Accounting was approved by the UT System Board of Regents. The proposed graduate school would not offer a new degree program but would provide an integrated degree track so that a full-time s tudent who performed ade- quately would receive both the Bachelor of Business Administration and the Master of Professional Accounting degrees at the end of five years. The dean of the Graduate School of Business would serve as dean of the Graduate School of Accounting. " As our experience with accounting shows, the business school is unique in that it is large enough to take on many missions at once, " Cunningham said. Cunningham became acting dean of the College of Business Administration and the Graduate School of Business on Sept. 1, following Dr. George Kozmetsky ' s resigna- tion in August. Previously, Cunningham served as associate business dean, guiding the MBA program. He was a recognizei leader in the area of multimedia instruct! in marketing and had received four teachin excellence awards. He also held the en dowed Foley ' s Sanger Harris Centenni Professorship in Retail Merchandising. Prior to joining the faculty in the Department of Marketing Administration in January 1971, he served as an instructor in the marketing department at Michigan State University, where he received his bachelor ' s, master ' s and doctoral degrees in marketing. " When I came here 12 years ago, I felt this would be the most exciting place to be if the next decade and beyond, " Cunningham said. " I was right.

To continue to conduct organized research on the relationship between business and society as well as the future of Texas in- dustrial infrastructure makes it desirable to forego the time-consuming administrative duties of the deanship, " said Dr. George Kozmetsky when explaining his reasons for resigning as dean of the College of Business Administration and the Graduate School of Business after 16 years in that position. Kozmersky relinquished his day-to-day duties as dean in August 1982 to devote more of his efforts to furthering the academic excellence of The University. In this regard, he continued as director of the Institute for Construction Capitalism (1C 2 ) and reported directly to the president ' s of- fice. As director of the institute, Kozmetsky established IC 2 ' s mission as subjecting capitalism to the objective scrutiny of academic research and providing ideas about ways in which the private sector might res- pond more effectively to help solve the pro- blems and concerns of American society. Before becoming involved with 1C 2 , Kozmetsky had provided challenging and effective leadership for the college and the graduate school. Under Kozmetsky ' s leader- ship, enrollment had grown from 3,600 undergraduate and graduate students in 1967 to more than 11,000 students in 1982. The 1982-83 edition of The New York Times Selective Guide to Colleges recognized the College of Business Administration as outstanding among UT ' s colleges. Also during Kozmetsky ' s deanship, privately endowed and funded chairs and professorships increased from two professor- ships in 1967 to four chairs, 51 professor- ships, 39 faculty fellowships and five lec- tureships in 1982. After his resignation, Kozmetsky con- tinued his association with the college and graduate school as a professor of manage- ment and as an ex-officio member of the College of Business Foundation Advisory Council. He also occupied the J. Marion West Chair of Constructive Capitalism and served as executive associate for economic affairs to the UT System Board of Regents. He entered the business world in 1952 as an assistant controller and member of the technical staff in the advanced electronics laboratory of the Hughes Aircraft Company. He joined Litton Industries in 1954, se rving for five years as director of the computers and controls laboratory in the electronics equipment division and for one year as vice president and assistant general manager of that division. He and another Litton associate founded Teledyne, Inc. in I960, an enterprise which became a major diversified company in the electronics industry. A native of Seattle, Washington, Kozmet- sky received a bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Washington (1938) and master of business administration (1947) and doctor of com- mercial science (1957) degrees from Harvard. In August, a building complex at The University constructed for the use of the College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Business was named the George Kozmetsky Center for Business Education. The complex included the new University Teaching Center, still under con- struction in May 1983; the Business- Economics Office Building and the Graduate School of Business Building. The UT System Board of Regents waived its rule regarding the naming of campus buildings which stated that any person after whom a campus building was to be named had to have been deceased for more than five years. UT President Peter Flawn requested the name change to recognize the outstanding contributions Kozmetsky made to business and research at UT. by Lynn Berat George Kozmetsky. former dean of the College of Busine: further academic excellence.

Jeffrey, Dean of the College of Communication. Having served as dean since 1979, Jeffrey also ex- pressed the satisfaction he received from " being in a position to offer encouragement in terms of financial assistance and finding ways that other people in other colleges might be able to cooperate with the faculty to achieve these goals. " Focusing on enrollment, Jeffrey stated that enrollment in the college had increased steadily in the past five years at a rate be- tween 9 percent and 14 percent a year. " We had to do something about that, " he com- mented. " The University has helped us with its stricter admission policies and this year the college actually saw a decrease in major enrollment by about two-tenths of 1 per- cent, " he added. " We are at a maximum. There ' s no doubt about that. We cannot grow and provide the quality of education we ' d like to provide with the amount of faculty we have and the number of facilities that are available, " he explained. According to Jeffrey, all the departments of the college were feeling pressures. The most rapid enrollment growth had been in the Depart- ment of Advertising. This had caused pro- blems because the Department of Advertis- ing was the newest and consequently had the fewest faculty members. In the college there was a total of approximately 4,000 students, approximately 3,500 undergraduates and 500 graduate students. " So the hope of the col- lege is to cut back to around 3,200 undergraduates and 400 graduate students, " Jeffrey concluded. Jeffrey felt proud reflecting on his association with the college. In the 1981 survey of graduate programs in communica- tion, UT ' s Department of Radio-TelevisiorJ Film ranked second while the three division! of the Department of Speech ranked bei ween second and eighth nationwide. In th Feb. 2, 1981 issue of the Wall Street Journa UT ' s Department of Advertising was name one of the top three advertising programs i the country. The College of Communicati was also one of only five colleges in the n tion with five accredited sequences in jou: nalism. Jeffrey claimed one reason for t college ' s excellence was its outstandinj faculty members. " I don ' t think there anyone who c an deny the principle that college is only as good as the facul members hired to teach in the areas i: volved, " he said. Jeffrey felt confident th; the College of Communication had the rig combination of faculty and resources to coi tinue a high standard of excellence in coi munication education. by Dave Carli 192 Communication COMMUNICATION Clinic Provides Training for Students dent Cathie Britt test psycho-acoustics lab equipme dents Vicki Danna and Elizabeth Stinnett test the hearing of a younc client The University of Texas Speech and Hear- ing Center, part of the Department of Speech Communication of the College of Communication, celebrated its 38th anniver- sary during the 1982-83 school year. The clinic was founded in 1945 to provide two important functions: to serve as a training site for future speech pathologists, audiologists and deaf educators, and to pro- vide assistance to the residents of Austin and to University students with speech, hearing and language disorders. Clients treated ranged in age from less than one year to the 90s. Students were given an opportunity to treat a wide variety of disorders, ranging from fluency difficulties, such as stuttering, to complicated disorders like those caused by neurological diseases. Approximately 300 students worked for degrees in the various disciplines that made up communication disorders. Approximately 50 students worked within the Hearing Center facilities in a semester, while other students completed supervised clinical work in outside training sites. Training sites in- cluded state hospitals and private practices. The program enabled students to acquire the 300 clinical practice hours required by the American Speech and Hearing Association before becoming a certified speech pathologist. According to Dr. Thomas Mar- quardt, director of the clinic, the students enjoyed their work despite long hours of planning and research. " Most of the students do more than their required amount and have in the order of 350 clinical practice hours upon leaving the program, " he added. Clients and students benefited from the expert supervision and quality research equipment that were available at the clinic. Close supervision of treatment and facilities that included a laboratory for audiologic and physiologic research, 10 therapy rooms with two rooms equipped with video cameras for student observation and evalua- tion, and an elaborate master control center, were resources of the clinic not readily available in private practices. Alice Richard- son said, " It ' s a well-rounded program. " She cited the main advantages the clinic had over private practices and concluded " where else can you find access to so much expertise and research facilities in just one place?

Kennamer has spent his career educating and teaching others to educate. Because of the shortage of teachers, Kennamer believed that the Col- lege of Education had a responsibility to produce quality teachers. He was confident the college could meet this demand because of its excellent faculty and The University ' s high admission standards. Kennamer has been the dean of the col- lege since 1972 and prior to that was the associate dean of Arts and Sciences and pro- fessor of geography at UT. Kennamer was a recipient of the Edward S. Noyes Award, a member of the Governor ' s Council on Career Education and listed in Who ' s Who in American Education. As dean, Kennamer has tried to keep the curriculum up to date so that it reflected current trends in education. In this vein, he introduced microcomputers to the Learning Resources Center in the College of Educa- tion. Microcomputers were being used in public schools across the state, according to Kennamer. The faculty taught students to use the computers so they could incorporate them into instruction in the classroom. At- testing to the popularity of computers, Ken- namer said, " Children and adults like the idea. Look at the success of Pac-Man. " The graduate study program in human resource development was introduced in 1981 at the College of Education and was the first of its kind in the country. This trained " people to be trainers in industry, " Kennamer said. With this degree, graduates could branch out and work in industry and business with personnel training programs. The dean described his duties as " taking an overview of the whole college and being a peacemaker when certain factions get upset with each other. " Kennamer had to in- sure that resources were divided so that each department got its relative fair share. " It ' s a people business, " Kennamer said. by Kristi D.

UT Elementary Education Students Make a Lasting Impression on Children A kindergarten classroom where 5-year- olds made discoveries every minute was far removed in time and space from the massive lecture halls of UT. Student teachers oc- cupied a tenuous position of authority be- tween the children and their parents, and between UT and the elementary school. Mary McCarthy, a senior majoring in elementary education, occupied that posi- tion in the 1982 fall semester. Her student teaching took her to Wooldridge Elemen- tary School in North Austin. McCarthy had chosen to major in elementary education because younger children " are still very creative and eager to learn, " she said. First impressions were just as important with children as with corporate recruiters. For her introduction to the class, McCarthy carried a large teddy bear that played " The Eyes of Texas, " and the children came to associate her with that song. Whenever she said, " Let ' s sing my favorite song, " two dozen little " hook ' ems " appeared. McCarthy ' s assumption of the teaching role was gradual. " The first thing I was allowed to do in the classroom was to read stories, which involves doing a ' transition, ' " McCarthy said. Sandy Briley, a UT doctoral candidate, explained that a transition was a short activity such as a finger play or song that led the children from one activity or place to another. To quiet the children, the student teacher could lead the class in " Grandma ' s Glasses " : These are Grandma ' s glasses (make spectacles with fingers), This is Grandma ' s hat (pat head), This is the way she folds her hands, and lays them in her lap (fold and lay hands in lap). 194 Education EDUCATION ' Children in McCarthy ' s class associate her with the song " The Eyes of Texas " and the " hook ' em horns " sign. McCarthy considered student teaching a learning process for everyone involved. Her classroom supervising teacher had to learn how much leeway to give the beginner and to let the student teacher make mistakes, without jumping in to take control of the situation. " As they (the children) got to know me ... they tried to see how far they could go. I expected them to be sweet little angels, " McCar- thy said. Finding that her students were not exactly angels, McCarthy had to exercise her disciplining skills and " show them who was boss. " Briley said many of the activities led by the kindergarten student An elementary student in McCarthy ' s class paints a turkey for the Thanksgiving holidays teacher employed a great deal of motion, or " experiencing. " McCarthy ' s classroom con- tained many learning centers where the children could learn by playing. In a corner labeled " Earth, " children could experiment and discover concepts like weight and mass by weighing corn in a balance scale. The children who strung beads together were not just developing play habits but were also developing fine motor skills. Kindergartners also had many art activities. " You can tell how children are developing through their artwork, " McCarthy said, showing how a child who drew a turkey with a set of large tailfeathers on its stomach did not have as clear a concept of a turkey as a child who had placed them on the tail. Looking back on her semester in the kindergarten classroom, McCarthy believed that the most difficult part of student teaching was trying to satisfy her own teaching goals in addition to satisfying her super- vising teacher. " The best part is interacting with the children and putting the theory you learned at UT into practice, " she said. " Still, I think they (the children) | definitely know their regular 1 teacher is the top person . . . but I think they liked me yes, " she said with a smile. Kindergarten teaching may have sound ed elementary to those geared for " high-tech " careers, but people like McCarthy who were involved in the education of young children knew that it was far more than child ' s play. Dealing with young minds was a complete science. by Maureen Creamer Education 195 ENGINEERING Gloyna Revitalizes Academic Programs " During the next academic year, we will closely review our accomplishments and chart a course of action for the next decade. The faculty, with the help of our alumni, can attain our goal of excellence in all engineer- ing teaching and research programs, " said Dean Earnest Gloyna about the revamping of the College of Engineering ' s programs. " Our mission is to provide a superior educa- tional experience for men and women of the state of Texas, to help develop professional academic leadership for this region of the country and to establish a nationally recognized center for academic excellence in teaching, research and professional develop- ment, " he added. Gloyna said a revitalization of the college meant developing facilities to accommodate the recent increase in enrollment and a reduction in the student-faculty ratio. New requirements, along with a rigorous drop policy, are only two of the many innovations designed to make the engineering program stronger. The stiffened drop policy would require that after the fourth day of classes, no drops would be allowed in any course. A graduate of Texas Tech University, The University of Texas at Austin and John Hopkins University, Gloyna has led the Col- lege of Engineering since 1970. Gloyna has shown exemplary leadership in the engineer- ing profession, not only as a teacher at UT Austin since 1947, but as a leader in private sector employment. He has held several con- sultantships, has written several books and papers pertaining to environmental engineer- ing and has held numerous non-teaching assignments with commissions and boards during his tenure as dean. Gloyna wanted to make use of his many years of experience in engineering and management. Becoming the backbone of the revitalization of the engineering pro- gram, he initiated a critical evaluation of the college ' s role in serving the engineering pro- fession. In the coming years, he would lead the college in its quest for education ex- cellence at UT. by Kellye Crittenden c tttK fUtt. - IkCoo - College of Engineering Dean Earnest Gloyna is revitalizing the engineering program.

The Cooperative Engineering Program filled this demand with a well-structured program of education and training with industry. Since its inception in 1966, the Co-op pro- gram had proven beneficial for students, their employers and The University. The Co-op program enhanced the educa- tional and professional development of par- ticipating students. Selection and placement r Graduate student Mark Peterman works on improving the stress factors in structure such as bridges and overpasses. of the best qualified engineering student candidates was accomplished competitively. Students had to have at least 28 semester hours of credit and a 2.5 GPA to be allowed into the program. Other requirements in- cluded eight hours of calculus credit, eight hours of physics credit and a basic engineer- ing course in any discipline. Co-op students spent three semesters away from campus employed by industrial firms such as IBM and Exxon for fulltime, on-the-job training. Students secured an ear- ly start on their careers and began to develop important professional relationships with their future colleagues. While they acquired valuable work experience which would give them a definite edge over their peers when the search for post-graduate employment began, students earned attractive salaries sometimes up to $2,500 a month. In addition to expanding educational op- portunities for selected students, the Co-op program demonstrated to prospective employers the high caliber of engineering students at The University as well as the high quality of education those students received. Students became important " ambassadors " for The University and demonstrated a sense of cooperation with employers, interacting within the " world of engineering. " Employers found participation in the educational development of future engineers especially valuable because it offered them an early look at prospective members of their staff. They also appreciated the oppor- tunity to inform other University personnel about their companies ' technical endeavors. Early development of placement ties bet- ween top quality students and prospective employers made career assistance programs offered by the college more efficient. Ernesto Moralez, a Co-op student, said his hands-on computer programming ex- perience, gained as an employee at NASA, was invaluable. " I learned a lot at UT, " Moralez said, " but the personal guidance given to me on my job taught me more than computer knowledge. I learned how to han- dle myself in a professional capacity, " he ad- ded. " The Co-op program aids in the transi- tion from student to employee, and I gained insight into the working world as a Co-op participant that I normally could not have gained, " he said. by Kellye Crittenden Peterman stacks drying concrete cylinders to use in a project for the Texas Highway Department Engineering 197 FINE ARTS Contributions Enhance Arts Program Comparing his college to others at The University, Dr. J. Robert Wills, dean of Fine Arts said, " We are like most other colleges on campus because we have an academics mission that encompasses all the things they do. " He added, however, that the College of Fine Arts was unique in the sense that so much of what was done there was public. " Our students gain both their great suc- cesses and their great failures on a stage, in front of an audience, and our public laboratories really set us apart from what is happening elsewhere in The University. " That, he said, was one of the things that made the arts unique. Beginning in October, the College of Fine Arts took over publication of a children ' s newspaper called Artsploration, which was published jointly by the Kennedy Center for the Arts and The University. Wills said the tabloid was published eight times a year, Oc- tober through May, for children in the fourth through sixth grades. In the summer of 1982, another program instituted by the College of the Fine Arts was the Dean ' s Associates. Annual contribu- tions from the Dean ' s Associates were used to support academic programs within the college. Wills said the contributions would " enhance the character of day-to-day life in the college " without having to rely solely on inadequately funded state appropriations, and would allow the college to respond to " spur of the moment opportunities. " Regarding his role as dean, Wills said that he was very interested in program develop- ment and that he saw his role as an ad- ministrator supporting the faculty and students, " and whatever programs they see as significant. " He added, " I also see my role as an administrator as a creative one, rather than a mechanical one, in terms of helping people carry out ideas that seem to be good ideas, and seem to be worthwhile. " Wills said that he was intrigued by the fact that " no one person makes plans or goals " in the decision-making process within the College of Fine Arts. Wills sounded optimistic about the future of his college. " Academically, we are well- respected, and we recognize that there is an enormous opportunity for us to grow into even greater excellence, which is our honest goal, " he said. by Fatima Argun Dean of the College of the Fine Arts,J.

Kennedy Center. In October, the College of Fine Arts at UT Austin began publishing the tabloid which was previously published for five Northwestern states Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Montana by the Arts Coalition Northwest, a regional pro- gram of the Kennedy Center and the Seattle Center, a city-owned cultural center. When the Kennedy Center ceased fund- ing for Arts Coalition Northwest because of budget cutbacks, a decision was made to continue the Arsploration program by awarding the UT College of Fine Arts a $15,000 start-up grant for printing, mailing and the editor ' s salary. " The grant must be renewed on a yearly basis for the college to continue publishing the newspaper, " said DeanJ. Robert Wills. With The University providing a national marketing distribution center for the arts - ?.

Salisbury, a former resident of Seattle, Washington, original creator and three year editor of Artiploration, had come to The University of Texas at Austin to edit the in- novative children ' s newspaper. Artsploration was published eight times during the year from October to May. In- dividual yearly subscriptions were $4 and subscriptions of 20 copies or more were $3. Urban and rural schools, classroom teachers, children and libraries were subscribers. With a total circulation of 8,000 copies in 1981, Wills hoped that a national marketing campaign for the publication would increase the current circulation. The cover page of each issue included the verbs, " imagine, explore, create, invent and solve " as explanation of what children were expected to understand when reading Art- iploration. Each 16-page issue, which includ- ed a different cultural theme, included such sections as " Arts Connect, " which showed the relationship between school subjects and the arts. The section called " Kids Publish " included artwork, brief stories and poems by children while the " Project Page " challenged youngsters to perform a special design or drawing assignment. " Kids in the Arts " focused on a child who had created something special in the arts. " Cultural Roots " spotlighted the arts of a foreign country or ethnic group. " Parent ' s Page " suggested several family oriented art ac- tivities and " Clever Endeavor " provided the readers with a page of games. In the past three years, the publication received acclaim from students and teachers, according to Salisbury, because " Artsplora- tion is really different. It tries to infuse the arts into the rest of the curriculum. It tells about the arts for their own sake, but it also shows how it relates to other areas of the curriculum. " Whether Artsploration is con- necting to science or connecting to math, it tries to make art an integral part of learn- ing.

Fine Arts 199 GRADUATE STUDIES Competition Leads to Higher Standards As a boy growing up during the Depres- sion, Dean William S. Livingston had dreams of someday becoming a politician. Instead, he became a specialist in British and Commonwealth government, comparative federalism and comparative political systems. " Instead of being a participant, I became an observer of the political process, " Livingston said. " I have no regrets about that, " he added. He received his bachelor ' s and master ' s degrees at Ohio State Universi- ty and his doctorate from Yale. In 1949, he came to LIT to teach government. Thirty years of dedicated work at The University made Livingston a prime choice for vice president and dean of Graduate Studies in 1979. In keeping with competition from other universities, Livingston was pressured to keep the standards and quality of faculty and students high in the Graduate Studies Program. " The reputation of The University is typically based on research and graduate studies. And if we ' re going to com- pete, these things are going to have our first attention, " he stated. In keeping with this commitment, Liv- ingston oversaw research assistance pro- grams for graduate students. Since 1979 he had presided over the University Research Institute which supplied research support money for faculty members. Livingston sup- ported and encouraged the recruitment of minority members at the graduate level. " The University is committed to a very elaborate plan for minority recruitment, " Livingston said. As part of the program, faculty members were sent around the state and the country interviewing and recruiting minority students. Fellowships for minority recruitment had been set up, including an award from the Danforth Foundation. Chairman of the interim committee that planned the development of the LBJ School of Public Affairs, Livingston had seen graduate studies at UT improve immensely over the past few years with improvement in programs such as classics, the Germanic languages and botany. To keep standards high, UT had always required a score of 1,000 on the GRE and a GPA of 3.0 to be considered for admittance to the graduate program. Under the guidance of Livingston, UT ' s graduate studies program continued to achieve quality. by Kay Ghahremani u . - .-. I William S.

J 200 Graduate Studies iards a GRADUATE STUDIES Graduate Faculty Exemplifies Quality In 1982, jobs were growing more scarce, times were getting tougher and more students looked to graduate school as a necessary step in the pursuit of a career. For- tunately, some of the best graduate pro- grams in the country were located on The University of Texas campus. With a required score of 1,000 on the Graduate Record Ex- amination and a 3.0 GPA, UT ' s graduate program was tough and competitive. Several UT programs, including classics, botany and Germanic languages ranked among Larry Schrenk and Christie Spell listen as classics chairman Karl Galinsky discusses " A Boxer. ' the top five in their respective fields and helped exemplify the quality UT was achiev- ing in its graduate level programs. What made each of t hese three depart- ments so good? When the departments ' chairmen were asked this question they all replied, " The quality of the faculty. " With 22 faculty members, the botany graduate department at UT was one of the largest in the country. It had consistently ranked among the top five programs in botany and boasted many internationally ac- claimed faculty members. The Department of Botany included a wide range of academic disciplines with emphasis in research and teaching. Topics from cell structure and function to forest ecology were studied by the 50 students in the graduate program. For those who wanted to study plant chemistry, the Department of Botany had one of the strongest depart- ments in the world. Also with 22 faculty members, the Department of Classics was the largest of its kind in the country. Included in the depart- ment were courses in classical languages, literature, art, archaeology, history, philosophy, religion and linguistics. " If anyone comes in here and says ' I ' d like to know about this aspect of Greece and Rome from 3000 B.C. to 500 A.D. ' there will be so- meone in this department to handle that, " said Dr. Karl Galinsky, chairman of the Department of Classics. Overall, Galinsky felt that " the department is very well known. It has a lot of visibility nationwide. " The Department of Germanic Languages had a well established faculty whose com- bined efforts with graduate students had produced a journal called Dimension. This literary magazine featured modern German works translated into English. Dr. Walter D. Wetzels, chairman of Ger- manic languages, stated, " What distinguishes this department from most is that it has very good representation in all fields from very early literary history to very modern German literary history. This depart- ment has always tried to be good and well represented in all fields, " he added. Dynamic, imaginative faculty members and bright students helped create a graduate school that took its place among the best. by Kristi D. Arnold and Kay Ghahremani Douglas Gage.

Graduate Studies 201 LAW SCHOOL I Law School Produces Quality Graduates I] " Legal education is such that it has to change along with the times, " said Dr. John Sutton, dean of the School of Law. " If you stand still, you ' re losing ground. " Sutton said his plans in the continuous process of improving the Law School in- cluded, among other things, revision of the curriculum, especially for second- and third- year law students, " so that we can get around the charge of boring our third-year students with repetition. " Sutton was refer- ring to complaints made by many third-year law students concerning the monotony of their studies. He considered graduate place- ment, admissions standards and funding for various Law School-related activities, such as the Texas Law Review, a student edited jour- nal, to be high priority items on the 1983 academic agenda. Unlike other colleges and schools on campus, the School of Law was not ex- periencing problems with post-graduate placement of its students. Rather, Sutton maintained that his school was having pro- blems with firms " fighting over " its students. He explained that the student body of the Law School had improved so dras- tically in the past few years that he made no distinctions between graduates in the lower . . . The School of Law was ranked in the top five percent of law schools in the nation . . . and upper half of the class. Administrators have always received pressure concerning admissions because of the large number of students applying to the School of Law each year. Sutton explained that with roughly 4,000 applicants vying for approximately 500 seats in the first year class, 1983 was going to be a competitive year. Of the more than 4,000 applicants who applied to the School of Law, half were out- of-staters. Sutton attributed much of the in- terest in the UT School of Law to its low tui- tion. The School of Law was limited by legislation to accept no more than 10 per- cent of its applicants from outside the state. Since becoming dean in 1979, Sutton had maintained his feel for instructing. He jok- ingly said that he hoped he would be pro- moted back to the classroom soon, admit- ting that his real love was teaching. In his 25 years of teaching at the Law School, Sutton said one of the problems that he en- countered most was poor writing skills. He hoped that the tighter admissions standards imposed in 1982 would produce graduates who were more skilled in writing and com- position, since, he said, many first-year students had problems in that area. Sutton said that the School of Law was ranked in the top five percent in the nation, and of that five percent, it was his belief that the School of Law would, in time, be ranked among the top five law schools in the na- tion. A lack of funds, especially in the area of research, was one reason the Law School was suffering from what he called a " lag in reputation. " He claimed that the reputation was changing slowly, while admitting that the process would be gradual, since UT was competing with institutions like Harvard, Columbia and Yale. Committed to improving the student body and the faculty, Sutton believed that these goals were necessary to make a good school great. by Fatima Argun Dr. John Sutton. dean of the School of Law. hopes to revise the curriculum to alleviate boredom and repetition. 202 Law School LAW SCHOOL Clinics Give Students Courtroom Time " What we are trying to teach the students, " Professor Bob Dawson explained, " is to take the knowledge and analytical skills taught in law school and to translate those into results that thei r clients can live with. " Dawson oversaw the law school ' s Criminal Defense Clinic and was describing the goal of clinical education programs at the law school. " What we ' re also trying to teach them and this is perhaps the most difficult thing are the judgments that have to be made in dealing with a case, " Dawson continued. " How do you evaluate a case? Should you demand a jury trial? Try to settle at all costs? What is a good settlement? What is a resonable cost? A reasonable offer? How do you try to persuade a client to take an offer that he doesn ' t really want to take? All these judgments go into being a lawyer. You ' re not only a lawyer, you ' re a counselor. The client expects you to give honest, and if possible, wise advice, " Dawson said. Although the law school had offered some sort of clinical experience since 1940, the modern format which combined academic understanding with practical train- ing, did not evolve until 1969. The earliest clinic was housed in the law school. A downtown attorney would drop in once a week to sign petitions and supervise the students, who received one hour of pass-fail credit for their work. In 1966, the federal government started funding legal aid for indigent clients. A legal aid office opened in Austin, one of the first in the country. The law school made some initial attempts to have students work in cooperation with the federally funded com- munity program, but the arrangement proved unsatisfactory to both parties. In 1969, local lawyer Barbara Kazen negotiated with Dean Page Keeton to open an outreach clinic in East Austin. That clinic became something of a rival to the federally funded Community Legal Aid office. When Pro- fessor Jack Sampson joined the law school in 1970, his purpose was to provide faculty input to the clinical program and to organize a classroom component to be taught in con- junction with the clinical experience. When students enrolled in a clinic, they were not so much taught a particular body of law (which could change dramatically within years), but a wealth of skills which were transferable to any area of litigation. The student who participated in a clinic learned to interview clients, investigate cases, interview witnesses, conduct discovery con- ferences with prosecutors, plea bargain with prosecutors, file documents, examine and cross-examine witnesses and argue before a judge or jury. In 1982, there were seven clinics, each of which had a classroom component to aug- ment the courtroom experience. In Samp- son ' s Clinical Legal Services Program, students represented indigent clients in domestic relations cases. The Education Law Clinic, directed by Steven Gode and Erica Black Grubb, focused on the educational rights of students and parents with emphasis on the rights of handicapped children to a free, quality education. In Bob Dawson ' s Criminal Defense Clinic, students learned the skills, tactics and values necessary to provide quality represen- tation of persons charged with violating state law. In Michael Rosenthal ' s Juvenile Justice Clinic, students interned either with the public defender ' s or district attorney ' s office to work on delinquent conduct and child-in-need-of-supervision cases. Supervis- ed by Professor Mike Churgin, students in Mental Health Legal Services represented persons confined at the Austin State Hospital in cases concerning the issues of civil commitment. Mike Sharlot, overseer of the Prosecutorial Clinic, placed no more than five students each with the county at- torney ' s office and the district attorney ' s of- fice to focus on legal problems often en- countered in the trial of criminal cases. In the Children ' s Rights Clinic, students under Cynthia Bryant ' s supervision were assigned to represent children in cases of alleged child abuse or neglect. All clinics required extensive field work (roughly eight to twelve hours per week) and one weekly classroom meeting. Course credit varied from three to six hours on a pass-fail basis. Most clinics required a $20 malpractice insurance fee and state law re- quired that a student have 42 hours of credit before representing a client. Law school did not provide the finishing touches for the legal profession; it just pro- vided a background. The purpose of the clinics, Sampson explained, was to allow the student to function as a lawyer under the protection of an educator. The practical ap- plication of law gave greater coherence to the student ' s academic curriculum. " Students don ' t leave here as lawyers, " he said. " They take the bar exam, they pass the bar, they ' re sworn in, they ' re admitted to the bar and they are nominal lawyers no more than nominal lawyers. All we can really give them is a base to build on, " he concluded. by Lynn Berat Bettye Jewel Taylor, second-year law student and participant in the Criminal Defense Clinic, prepares a brief. Law School 203 PUBLIC AFFAIRS Exhibit Features Texas Courthouses " Those (students) coming out of here will have a commitment to public service. They will have that commitment in the public in- terest and they will begin to make a dif- ference. We just need to get enough of them out there. And it ' s going to turn. When? Say within the next 10 years we should be able to see some of the contributions of these students coming to fruition. It ' s possible, " said Barbara Jordan, professor of national policy, in a 1982 Daily Texan interview. Jordan was responding to a question con- cerning the contribution her students would make when they, as graduates of the Lyndon Baines Johnson School of Public Affairs, became public administrators. Jordan was the first person to hold the LBJ Centennial Chair in National Policy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. Demonstrating her commitment to minority recruitment at the school, Jordan par- ticipated in special conferences and pro- grams such as the " Summer Program in Policy Skills " and " The Public Sector, " a weekend conference on graduate prepara- tion and career options for minority students. Because of these programs and other efforts by the school, minority enroll- ment had increased markedly over the years since the school opened in 1971. Although Jordan supported affirmative action, she had " never been a supporter of special favors being granted to minority students simply because they have a certain background, or simply because there are cer- tain natural facts about their lives which they cannot overcome and appeal to the govern- ment. I believe that minority students or minority people ought to go as far as they can go without being interfered with and without seeking a handout and being on a dole or whatever bad word you can think of, " Jordan said. Jordan ' s efforts in minority recruitment were representative of the school ' s commit- ment to becoming the best institution for graduate study in public policy, public management and public service. The school developed in response to government ' s growing need for administrators with a broadened range of skills on policy develop- ment and analysis, said Dean Elspeth Rostow, whose resignation as head of the LBJ School of Public Affairs went into ef- fect May 31, 1983. Under Rostow ' s leader- ship since 1977, the LBJ School was ranked sixth in a nationwide survey of schools with an emphasis on public affairs. The school had grown from an initi enrollment of 13 students in its first year to a student body of 202 in 1982-83. As dean of the School of Public Affairs, she led a prestigious 20-member faculty, which in addition to former Congresswoman Jordan, included former Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall and former Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Wilbur Cohen. Two new professorships in urban policy were added in 1982. The LBJ School of Public Affairs trained men and women of exceptional promise for professional careers in government, business and non-profit institutions. Students were trained to work mainly in state and local governments, but graduates were employed at all levels of government and a variety of public-sector related firms. The school also offered joint degree programs in engineer- ing, business and law. by Kristi D. Arnold and Kellye Crittenden Barbara Jordan ' s objective is minority recruitment.

Wyllys believed that these three fields were closely related because they were all characterized by structure. " Music deals with patterns of pitch, harmony and rhythm, and the repetitions and subtle varia- tions of these patterns, " he said. Math, likewise, was a study of abstract structure, patterns having to do with proper use of numbers and operations; language had syn- tactic structures. The idea of structure was also important to the field of information science itself, where it was essential to organize information for later retrieval, to " try to anticipate the enormous diversity of future needs for information. " Wyllys had an optimistic view of his field. " We are, I believe, at the forefront of one of the most rapidly growing fields over the next decade or two, " he said, pointing out that there was always a need for librarians and handling information. The specific purpose of his school, he said, was to " train people to handle the intellectual analysis and the in- tellectual management of information, mak- ing use of technological tools such as com- puters, computer software and new equip- ment in areas like communication. " What the dean liked most about his school was the students. He enjoyed having contact with young people, helping them to learn and seeing them go out in the real world and succeed. " I have been teaching here at The University for 10 years, " he said, " and as a result, almost anywhere I go in Texas, I will meet former students. Usually most of them tell me they ' re glad that I was one of their teachers and that they went through this school, and that they ' re enjoy- ing their work. There ' s a great deal of satisfaction in that. " by Andrea Peroutka Ronald Wyllys, dean of the College of Library and Information Science, says his students make his job rewarding. Dean Thomas Hatfield strives to meet people ' s needs. Hatfield Foresees Commitment To Public Service Continuing education began at UT in 1909 when the Board of Regents created the Department of Extension. In 1982, the Ex- tension Division was an essential part of the University ' s identity. It meant more than overseeing correspondence courses, schedul- ing seminars in various subjects and pro- viding credit or non-credit classes for per- sons seeking part-time college training. " The Division of Continuing Education, which encompasses the extension division, is con- tinually shifting forward to meet the needs of many people, " said Dr. Thomas Hatfield, dean of Continuing Education. Hatfield worked to increase the offerings of that part of The University by strengthen- ing all of the continuing education programs because he felt a university ' s obligations were to the society it serves, and times have demanded greater development and expan- sion of these programs. Hatfield foresaw a recommitment to public service and that the Department of Continuing Education would characterize The University in the coming years. He felt that continuing education was a high priori- ty of UT in the decade of the Centennial and that the school " will endeavor to make its resources available to the citizens, agencies and institutions of Texas at the times and the places and in the forms most useful to them.

LIBERAL ARTS King Approves Vick Recommendations " I am fascinated by language, " Robert King, dean of the College of Liberal Arts said. King acquired this interest in linguistics through an unusual combination of events. King was employed as a mathematician and computer programmer by IBM in Cape Canaveral, Florida, during the early ' 60s. At that time there was a great deal of interest in foreign languages. " Sputnik had just gone up and we didn ' t think the Russians were even close to sending up a rocket; but they got theirs up before we did and there was a great panic in the country that we were los- ing the race to the Russians, " he explained. " What resulted was a great emphasis on beefing up the natural sciences courses and foreign language because the Russian scien- tists could read English, French, German and our scientists couldn ' t read anything. " At that time IBM thought it would be ad- vantageous to use computers to translate from one language to another. King was put to work on the project because he knew computers and because he had lived in Ger- many for several years as an exchange stu- dent and spoke German like a native. " I soon realized that while I knew computers and knew German, I had no idea how to sit down and write a program to translate one language to another, " he said. Consequently, King went back to school to learn something that would help him with his assignment linguistics. However, he did not return to IBM. He preferred to remain in the academic world because he enjoyed exploring the theoretical aspects of linguistics. King also had definite goals for his col- lege. " The major goal this year in terms of the undergraduate experience is to imple- ment the recommendations of the Vick Committee and to, secondly, look afresh at what the BA degree in the College of Liberal Arts should look like, what sort of courses a student should take, " King explained. The curriculum changes that would take place in the college to meet the Vick Committee ' s recommendations included adding six hours of English writing classes to the nine hours of English already required and adding three hours of mathematics to the 15 hours of natural science requirement. The dean ' s favorite aspect of the College of Liberal Arts was the Plan II Honors Pro- gram. " Plan II is one of the oldest continu- ing honors programs in any major public university. It ' s the diamond in the crown of the educational experience in this college, " he said. Plan II was considered a diamond because, as an alternate route to the BA degree, it was not limited to a single depart- ment or school. Its core was a high quality liberal arts curriculum combined with re- quirements in various academic areas. Plan II featured year-long courses, small group seminars, independent studies, special pass fail options and flexible major concen- trations. Its goal, according to Dr. Ira Iscoe, chairman of the Plan II program, was to give students " the type of education on par with the Ivy Leagues. " With a program such as Plan II and changes generated by the Vick Committee, the College of Liberal Arts joined UT President Peter Flawn in his " war on mediocrity.

Liberal Arts 207 NATURAL SCIENCES Boyer Addresses Departmental Problems In addition to fulfilling his duties as dean of the College of Natural Sciences, Dr. Robert E. Boyer began his first term as presi- dent of the American Geological Institute in 1983. Boyer said he enjoyed the challenge of overseeing the operation of AGI, a 50,000 member federation created to provide infor- mation and services to geologists worldwide. Boyer also approached the completion of his book, Geology and Resources in Texas. Ac- cording to Boyer, when published, the book would be the first single reference to infor- mation on the broad geological features of the entire state of Texas. The year was highlighted when Boyer was named the first holder of the Robert E. Boyer Centennial Professorship in Geological Sciences. Focusing on the college during the 1982- 83 school year, Boyer claimed the major concern was the rapid growth in the Depart- ment of Computer Sciences. Increased enrollment had resulted in the need for new faculty members, a larger number of com- puter terminals and additional space. The problem was compounded by the growing need for other disciplines to have service courses in computer sciences. " The cure lies in a gradual growth in our capabilities, " he commented. " We cannot effectively address the problem of the needed space and faculty until computer science is relocated in its pro- jected home, the renovated Taylor Hall, " he added. Conversely, there was a decrease in enrollment in the geological sciences as a consequence of the scarcity of jobs available in the oil and gas industry. A change in the pattern of exploration for hydrocrabons and less employee turnover in both the larger companies and the smaller firms were two factors attributed to the slowing down of employment. " This means there will not be the opportunities for competitive offers the students had three years ago. This is going to have an impact on registration in the geological sciences, " Boyer stated. Boyer felt proud of the college ' s associa- tion with projects like McDonald Obser- vatory, the future home of the proposed 300-inch telescope. Boyer was particularly pleased with the Industrial Liaison Program, describing it as a " very high class placement program. " The program offered companies an opportunity to visit departments within the college. Faculty and industry represen- tatives were given a chance to interact and students obtained interviews with companies interested in hiring science graduates. Boyer felt the continuing success of programs like the Industrial Liaison contributed respec- tability to the college. by Dave Carlin Dean Robert E. Boyer says enrollment in the Department of Computet Science is mushrooming, whereas the geology department is undergoing serious enrollment problems. : 20H Natural Sciences NATURAL SCIENCES ames Greene, research manager for the Institute of Fusion Studies, and William Drummond study fusion power William Drummond. director of the Fusion Research Center, operates the Texas Experimental Tokamak Tokamak Promises Unlimited Energy " Fusion has been called the most difficult scientific challenge of the 20th century. At the same time, it ' s been called the most critical element of an e nvironmentally attrac- tive society in the 21st century, " said Dr. William E. Drummond, Director of the Fu- sion Research Center (FRC). Drummond, who came to The University in 1965 following his graduation from Stan- ford in 1950, considered UT ' s Fusion Research Center to be one of the best such programs of any country in the world. " To be lucky enough to come out of school and get involved in the beginnings of a research program was indeed a unique opportunity, " Drummond added. The Fusion Research Center, established at UT in 1966, has become a " major partici- pant " in the national programs of the Department of Energy, where the funds for its operation were generated. Initially, however, the Texas Atomic Energy Research Foundation, composed of several Texas- owned utilities funded major FRC programs. " They foresaw the current energy shortage in the 50s, and began to support fusion research as a partnership with The University of Texas shortly afterwards. " In addition to its work with experimental research, the FRC operated the Texas Ex- perimental Tokamak, (TEXT), a national facility for research on fusion plasmas. Began in the 1970s at a cost of $20 million, the TEXT was built and operated by the University of Texas for the Department of Energy. The basic function of TEXT was to conduct experiments in the areas of atomic and molecular studies needed to interpret plasma data. Plasma is an " ultra hot gas " which has been heated to a very high temperature, then confined " for a time long enough for the fusion reactions to take place. " Hence the name " plasma physics, " which is the discipline related to the efforts to produce controlled fusion power. Drummond said that the acquisition and development of the Fusion Research Center and Tokamak were instrumental in not only bringing talented people from all over the world to Texas, but that they " were just one part of a large quilt of a University which is trying to provide the kind of graduate school that will keep the best young Texans here.

Williams, dean of the School of Social Work. After reading her extensive resume, one knew that that bit of philosophy fit Williams. Since getting her bachelor ' s, master ' s and doctorate at UT, Williams has written or co-written more than 29 books and articles, more than 39 reports and monographs and published nine inservice training manuals. The topics she has covered ranged from conformity behavior in children to decision-making and personality factors in accident causation. All the topics related psychology to the social sciences. Williams has always been interested in psychology and she became interested in how organizations work when she worked as a secretary. " As a secretary, you get involved in how organizations work, " she said. Williams was glad she got into the organizational field because she had always liked administrative kinds of jobs. In 1967, Williams got a job in the College of Business Administration developing courses in the curriculum that would introduce the social sciences into that college. From there, Williams went to the law school and worked on management training development pro- grams for correctional people such as judges and probation officers. She became involved in social work when one of the professors from the School of Social Work attended one of her programs and asked if she would like to teach there. " Social Work is very much an applied science, since its focus is solutions of social problems through the work setting, through delivery of services and through organizational and institiutional change, Williams said. " So it was a nice tran- sition into an area of application of all those social science areas that I was interested in, " she continued. Experience with taking care of a family while maintaining a job led Williams to con- duct research concerning the problems that women faced while trying to juggle the responsibilities of home and work. Williams felt that it was an organizational problem how to take on many tasks at one time. She researched how the working life and family life affect each other, how the job can be structured so that the two are not in conflict and what service organizations can provide to facilitate better family-work coordination. Williams said that, in her own life, the key to balancing family and work had been get- ting her priorities straight. " Besides, " she said, " you can do more than you think you can. " by Andrea Peroutka Martha S. Williams, dean of the School of Social Work, believes in getting your prior ities straight when balancing a career with a home and family. 210 Social Work SOCIAL WORK Julie Thomas, Larry Applewhite, Diane Booher, Barbara Addington and Nancy French discuss social service organizations at Shoal Creek Hospital. El Paso Project Offers Idea Exchange " The purpose is to develop social workers who can work in the multicultural settings of the border, in Texas-Mexico type social service agencies, " said Dean Martha Williams of the School of Social Work about the El Paso Project. The project, involving The University of Texas at Austin and El Paso, was established as an extension of the degree pro- gram for graduate studies in social work. Dr. George Herbert, associate dean of the UT School of Social Work, said, " The ar- rangement will enable students in El Paso to earn master ' s degrees in social work from UT Austin. " He further explained, " There has been in El Paso a concern that there are no facilities for graduate social work educa- tion. UT El Paso has an undergraduate pro- gram, but students must go quite a distance to attend a school with a master ' s degree program. " The closest possibilities were Our Lady of the Lake University in San An- tonio, the University of Arizona and the University of Denver. UT Austin faculty members Dr. Ruth McRoy and Dr. Guy Shuttlesworth alternated traveling to " After completion, the students will be able to work on either side of the was aimed at persons involved in direct ser- vice to individuals, families and groups. " After completion, the students will be able to work on either side of the border, " Williams said. " We hope to atract students from Mexico, " she added. In the spring of 1982, the in- itial program was held to ex- plain and develop the El Paso El Paso each week to teach courses there on Thursdays and Saturdays. In the fall of 1982, there were 26 students enrolled in the program. The part-time pro- gram enabled students to work full-time as social workers in El Paso and complete their degree in a little more than two years. The master ' s program in El Paso offered a concentration of courses in an area called " interpersonal helping. " That concentration 1 i Project more fully for El Paso UUIUCl. residents.

Fonken, vice president for Academic Affairs and Research at UT Austin, noted that the cooperative program between the institutions would also offer op- portunities for field work by UT social work students attending the School of Social Work in Austin. by Julie Del Barto Social Work 211 NURSING = UT Nursing School Enrollment Declines Enrollment in nursing schools all over the United States was dropping, according to Billye Brown, dean of the School of Nurs- ing. Although 100 new nursing student spaces were filled each semester in UT Austin ' s School of Nursing, student applica- tions for admission into the program had declined by more than 50 percent since 1977. According to Mitzi Dreher, Assistant Dean of the School of Nursing, " whereas in 1977, we had almost 400 applications, this past year for the fall semester, we had only 150 applications. " Brown, recipient of the La Quinta Motor Inns, Inc. Centennial Pro- fessorship in Nursing, said that enrollment in the nursing program at UT had declined because " we have maintained our standards for enrollment and there are fewer high school students graduating. " She added that " there are more schools of nursing, so we are not getting a large share of those applicants at the undergraduate level. " One of Brown ' s accomplishments as dean of the School of Nursing has been the ac- quisition of private funds for the school. The fully endowed James R. Dougherty Jr. Centennial Professorship allowed a " new person to come on board " for the start of the Nursing Service Administrator ' s program at the doctoral level in the fall of 1983. Nursing education reflected the changes in the profession by stressing the importance of the four-year baccalaureate nursing pro- gram with two years of liberal arts and science courses and two and one-half years of professional nursing courses which in- cluded Computer Assisted Instruction. In the CAI program, a student learned and im- proved skills in a particular nursing pro- cedure or technique that was required for practice in hospitals or with patients anywhere. Working before a computer ter- minal with a specific computer program, a student progressed through the program by answering questions to learn or improve nur- sing skills in a particular procedure or technique for the nursing profession. " Com- puter Assisted Instruction allows for a great deal of individualization to the students as they are learning, " Brown said. With a rapidly changing profession, UT ' s School of Nursing had to adapt their cur- riculum accordingly. " We (nursing) are more a reacting profession than we are a proacting profession. We are beginning to be somewhat proactive in initiating some of the changes in nursing care, but because our profession does not initiate many of the changes in medical care we still will continu to be more reactive than proactive. We an trying to teach our students to recognize the fact that nursing is not a static profession, " Brown said. by Wesley Burress . . .. . r . ' .

The College of Pharmacy started in Galveston in 1893 and was moved to a basement in the Chemistry Building at the UT Austin campus shortly before World War II. From there the college was moved to a location directly behind the Student Health Center. In 1981, the school moved into its new building sandwiched between Burdine and the Experimental Science Building. Construction had not been completed in 1982, but the new facilities housed the Student Health Center Phar- macy, classrooms and laboratories. In June 1983, James T. Doluisio had served as dean of the college for 10 years. Doluisio was the chief elected officer of the Pharmacy Association in 1982, which con- sisted of 50,000 practitioners. During the Centennial year Doluisio received an honor- ary doctoral degree from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. Doluisio ' s primary areas of interest were in pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics. Pharmacokinetics is the study of how quick- ly drugs are absorbed into and eliminated from the body. Knowing this allows a phar- macist to understand how often a drug should be administered to a patient. Biopharmaceutics uses this type of data to develop the best drug dosage forms, such as tablet or capsule. Seven people in the Chicago area died between Sept. 29 and Oct. 2 after taking Extra-strength Tylenol capsules that had been laced with cyanide. In the early stages of the crisis, it was feared that the cyanide had been slipped into the capsules at McNeil Laboratories and had been distributed throughout the nation. Later it was deter- mined that the poisonings were the actions of an independent individual. Doluisio was a consultant to McNeil Laboratories when Tylenol was developed and had done various types of research with the product. During the Tyleno l crisis, Doluisio ' s confidence in the product and McNeil was never shaken. He commented on his actions the morning the story broke. " A reporter for the Austin American- Statesman called and talked to me about the matter. I talked about the need to make this thing (the Tylenol product) more tamper- proof, but everyone was still trying to deter- mine whether McNeil had fouled up and let cyanide slip into their production. " Doluisio believed that this incident did not harm the integrity and professional view of pharmacy, but caused a needed focus on a major flaw in society. He also stated that " there ' s hardly a product that you have, drug product or food product, that can ' t be tampered with. " Swift action, initiated by Doluisio, was taken in the Student Health Center Phar- macy the day the story of the Tylenol poisonings broke. Any product that could be tampered with was removed from the open shelves. A display area was set up with the available products which could then be provided from a secured area behind the counter. The pharmacy was to be arranged like this until the majority of the products were rendered tamper-proof. The College of Pharmacy planned a series of activities for the Centennial. In February, a Centennial Symposium held at Lakeway resort village was attended by representatives from about 10 countries. As part of the distinguished speakers series, Jere Goyan, the immediate past commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, was scheduled to visit UT on April 15. Doluisio added that " we have developed a matching funds drive to endow professorships and fellowships for the Centennial which has been very successful. Our alumni have been very good to the college. " by Kathy Wright James T. Doluisio reflects on his 10 years as dean of the College of Pharmacy at The University Pharmacy 21} VICE PRESIDENTS Centennial Observance Evokes Teamwork The goals of the Centennial observance were to reflect on The University ' s first cen- tury, to focus on The University in 1983 and to chart a course for The University ' s future. Vice President and Coordinator of Centen- nial Programs Shirley Bird Perry was respon- sible for overseeing the development and in- itiation of these goals. According to Perry, the success of the Centennial Observance would not have been possible without the cooperation and commitment of The University ' s vice presidents. Each vice presi- dent worked on a Centennial Commission JL task force which corresponded to his depart- ment. For example, Vice President for Stu- dent Affairs Ronald M. Brown sat on the Student Life task force. Besides the business of coordinating the Centennial programs, the vice presidents were never far from their delegated duties of running The University. Besides Brown and Perry, the other vice presidents included Senior Vice President James H. Colvin; Gerhard J. Fonken, Academic Affairs and Research; G. Charles Franklin, Business Af- fairs; William S. Livingston, dean of Grad- uate Studies and Robert D. Mettlen, Ad ministration. These administrative office were responsible for the policies that govern the internal operation of the University. Parj ticular attention was devoted to developing and maintaining an excellent team of ad ministrators. This team was chosen to givJ dynamic, positive leadership to UT. Perry described the working relationship! of the team of vice presidents as a " rare and beautiful phenomenon. I think it ' s a conj fluence of ... the right people at the righi time, " she said. by Julie Del Band FIRST ROW: William S. Livingston, Shirley B. Perry, Gerhard Fonken. SECOND ROW: G.

' - ' ; ..: PRESIDENT Flawn Expresses Pride Over Centennial :, ' ,; The functions of a chief executive are quite often misunderstood. And so it was with The University of Texas president, Peter T. Flawn. While some likened his posi- tion to that of a ceremonial centennial figurehead, such was not the case. Upon assuming the presidency of The University in 1979, Flawn was anything but a Igurehead. Involved in planning, budgeting nd making decisions concerning academic nd business affairs, Flawn was responsible or representing The University in state and ederal organizations and at public func- tions. Also, Flawn ' s job dictated that he in- teract with alumni and students, and raise funds from private sources. Flawn said he found his job rewarding because he liked to solve problems, and that universities were critical to society in that respect. " I think that a society that does not invest in the development of its own human resources will inevitably fail, " he said. In response to charges that student government was ineffective because of apathy at The University, Flawn maintained that the prob lem was the result of a lack of interest, not the result of apathy, which he defined as " lack of interest in anything. " He explained that " students today are more focused on their studies, their careers, their own personal academic development than at any other time that I can remember in the past. " Regarding Hank the Hallucination ' s victory in the student government presiden- tial race, Flawn said he thought it was " sym- bolic of the attitude of the times, " and of no great importance. A character from The Daily Texan comic strip " Eyebeam, " Hank the Hallucination forced the race for student government president into a runoff. Flawn hoped that the newly elected student government would be successful, adding that " inevitably, the quality of the effort will depend on the people involved. " A significant program instituted to com- memorate the Centennial was the Centennial Commission, which was to provide a review, evaluation and assessment of The University to be used for future generations. Flawn called the Centennial Commission a " plan- ning exercise " and said that it would " set the directions for The University for many years to come. " One of the planning exercises in which The University engaged in 1982 concerned expansion into East Austin. Several protests were staged during the course of the year, in- cluding a rally on the West Mall to express student dissatisfaction with the proposed University physical plant facilities to be built in East Austin. Even though the expansion was responsible for displacing East Austin residents, The University maintained that it was acting in accordance with state law by acquiring land through eminent domain. " It is our best judgment that the public interest is best served by acquiring that land, " Flawn said, adding that " I know this means that some individuals are inconvenienced, but we have to think of the long term. " Regarding his role as administrator of The University, Flawn said that he was for- tunate to be in his position at this particular time. " It is gratifying to me that this par- ticular time in history finds me sitting where I sit, " Flawn said. " The Centennial is a great opportunity to assess where we are and where we are going. We have come a very great distance in the last 100 years, " he con- cluded. by Fatima Argun I President Peter T. Flawn stands committed to insuring another 100 years of excellence at The University. ' President 215 CHANCELLOR Walker Examines UT ' s First 100 Years " Basically we all hope that 100 years from now, The University would continue to achieve what I think that it has achieved in the first 100 years, and that is to become a major or outstanding university with a very high degree of excellence in its programs, " Chancellor E. D. Walker said after reflecting on UT ' s anniversary year. " I would hope that we didn ' t lose sight of that in the next 100 years, and we continued in whatever development that education takes in this country, " he continued. Walker has been associated with the University System for nearly three decades, beginning as business manager and comp- troller of hospitals of the Galveston Medical " When The University was established, it was established as a ' university of the first class. ' I certainly hope in 100 years from now, it will be a ' universi- ty of the first class, ' and one of the best universities in this country. I think we see the vision. " Branch in 1955. In 1964 he was associate director of the Medical Branch and one year later joined the UT System administration as director of facilities planning and construc- tion. Walker served as acting chancellor, president and deputy chancellor of the University of Texas system before being named chancellor in 1978. " When The University was established, it was established as a ' university of the first class. ' I ce rtainly hope in 100 years from now, it will still be a ' university of the first class, ' and one of the best universities in this country. I think we see the vision. I think people have vision of what they wanted in this state, and I think we ' ll see that develop in The University, " Walker said. When the crude oil blew out from Santa Rita No. 1 in 1923 on University lands in West Texas, the income from its sale aided The University in becoming an integral part of the development of the entire state of Texas. To continue such traditional develop- ment, The University developed the Centen- nial Scholars program, which provided a ma- jor contribution to the future of this institu- tion of higher education. The program began in 1981 after the legislature had ap- proved matching funds for private gifts that created additional endowed academic posi- tions. A portion of the Available University Fund, which was derived from investment of the Permanent University Fund, was ap- propriated to provide the matching funds. When a private gift for a professorship was given to The University, another professor- ship was created by the matching funds. Ac- cording to Walker, " We thought we would have a substantial growth in the endowed academic positions, but nothing like what has happened. " During the Centennial period, 1981-83, Walker anticipated that $li million in matching funds would be needed for the program over the two-year period. At the end of 1981, $18.5 million had been used for matching funds. " I think the opportunity there is probably that we will need at least $75 million for endowed academic posi- tions, " said Walker. " We will probably have the largest number of endowed positions of any university in America by the end of 1983, " he added. With the additional Centennial endowed positions providing academic excellence, " The University would continue to be one of the dominant leaders in the nation, ' remarked Walker. " The thing we want most of all is quality, to build more quality in all the institutions in the UT system, " he added. Quality was not to be the exception, but the rule at The University as it remained " one of the best universities in the country, " Walker concluded. by Wesley Burress n all the institutions in the UT system. " says Chancellot E. D. Walker 216 Chancellor REGENTS egents Nurture Expanding UT System Declaring the Centennial Teachers and ! Scholars Program as the greatest achieve- ; ! nent of the UT Board of Regents during his enure, Regent Jess Hay was reappointed to :he Board on April 5, 1983 by Gov. Mark ' White. Robert Baldwin III and Mario Vzaguirre were appointed to fill the seats vacated by Sterling Fly and Jane Blumberg Dn January 11, 1983. In line with The University ' s Centennial Celebration, Regents adopted the Teachers ind Scholars Program which matched privately endowed academic positions with ositions endowed by UT System funds, he program went into effect in August ' 1981 and as of February 1983, a total of 422 endowed faculty positions had been created, according to Development Office Records. The Board of Regents, appointed by the governor and approved by the state [legislature, oversaw the 14 universities which constitute the UT System. Making appoint- ents of faculty to endowed chairs, for- mulating policy decisions and handling finances were their main functions. The Regents approved a $1.4 billion budget for the UT System in 1982-83. UT Austin ' s total all-funds budget was more than $380 million, reflecting an 11 percent increase over the previous fiscal year. The most salient actions by the Board concerning the Austin campus were the ap- proval of amendments to the student government constitution, which gave the campus its first Students ' Association since 1978 when students voted to abolish it. Students would be affected by the decision to increase rental rates for student housing, slated to go into effect in 1983-84. All residence halls, family student housing and women ' s cooperative housing fees would go up by five to seven percent in response to higher operating costs. Acting upon their concern with the decline in the quality and quantity of public school teachers throughout the state, the Board strengthened teacher education stan- dards across the system. A decision affecting the UT Austin staff was the acceptance by the Regents of Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) as health care options for the UT System employees. HMOs offered an alternative to traditional insurance plans using their own physicians and clinics and charging a regular monthly fee for these services. One of the Board ' s more controversial decisions was its authorization of a $12.5 million physical plant facility to be built on a 10-acre tract of land located in East Austin. East Austinites protested the decision (which was based on The University ' s right to emi- nent domain) because they would be forced to sell their homes and relocate. To symbolize the partnership between UT and Austin, the Regents approved the dedication of three acres of land east of Waller Creek extending along Red River for a Centennial Park. by Kristi D.

Regents 217 .- i !..: -- Jaafey fa? v , a .- ? Space Q Program itsiders to the University environment may have thought UT ' s only space program consisted of the star-gazing dome at McDonald Observatory in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. Such was not the case. UT was also involved in another extensive space pro- gram. UT ' s other space program began in 1923 when black gold burst from the depths of University-owned land in Reagan County. UT ' s first gusher, Santa Rita No. 1, initiated additional revenues for the Per- manent University Fund in the form of oil, gas, water and royalties and rentals on mineral leases. These dollars contributed directly to the principal of the PUF. With the interest revenue on short and long term investments from PUF, UT ' s building program grew rapidly. The face of the University of Texas campus changed steadily dur- ing the 60-year period as the original 40-acre campus was transformed from nine buildings to 116 buildings. Through continuous renovation, restoration and new construction, The University evolved from the sparse, dilapidated structures of the pre-Santa Rita era to the plush, well-equipped edifices of the 1980s. When the Board of Regents authorized the project for initial design development, a project architect worked with the administration and with the future users of the facility to develop detailed plans for new building construction or renovation. These plans were reviewed and approved by the Regents at a preliminary-plan stage and a subsequent final-plan stage before the project was carried out by a contractor. If funds for the new buildings were acquired from the Available University Fund, Legislative appropriations or bond sales, the Regents authorized the advertisement of the project for contract or bids. Bas- ing their decision on the return and receipt of bids from all interested contractors, The Regents awarded a construction contract. " From that point then the work for most of the projects we are talking about may go on from 12 to 30 months depending upon the extent of the work, " Walls said. Before accepting the project, The University required an A photogrammetric survey, taken at an altitude of 10,000 feet, displays the various renovation, restoration and new construction projects on the UT-Austin campus. UT ' s Other Space Program 219 I BUTTON HALL The renovation of Sutton Hall, the home of the School of Architecture, cost approximately $3.2 million and was completed in July 1982 inspection of the facility before occupancy to determine that the pro- visions of the construction contract had been properly executed to The University ' s satisfaction. " Part of the problem with renovation projects is that we have a lot of buildings in need of renovation. There were a lot of buildings built here in the early ' 30s and these buildings are now 50 years old. Typical- ly, a building of that age requires some attention, " Walls said. Because many old buildings on campus were not originally built to meet the demands of electrical power required by electronic instrumentation, computers and audio-visual media equipment, building renovation usually required the replacement or upgrading of utility systems. Although renovation projects interrupted the use of buildings on campus, classes were never cancelled or stopped. As a result, schedul- ing was a major obstacle for the planning office since buildings were full of people. " It is very difficult to renovate a building while the oc- cupants are there, " said Walls. Illustrative of this space problem or " surge problem, " was the difficulty encountered by the Office of Plan- ning Services when work on the Kozmetsky Center for Business Education began. After the advertisement of bids for a contractor was announced for the Kozmetsky Center project, Walls had to find tem- porary surge space for the occupants of the buildings. According to Walls, " It is a logistical nightmare. " Plans were developed which temporarily relocated the business and economics faculty largely in the Graduate School of Business at the expense of some areas that were previously used for other purposes. The Institute for Constructive Capitalism was relocated in the RGK Foundation Building on San Gabriel, and some of the lounge and study facilities in the business building were eliminated. A major consideration involved with the building construction process was the decision to raze a building or renovate the facility. According to Walls, " Those of us who have some interest and involvement in these matters make recommendations, and present those arguments, pro and con, for a particular decision, but ultimately 220 UTs Other Space Program Emmett Hernandez mans his station as a wrecking ball destroys Robert E Lee Hall it is the president who decides these issues. " The important factors considered in determining whether a building would be razed or renovated were the prominence, significance and character of a building. The classical Italian Renaissance architecture and the long- time relation of Sutton Hall to the UT campus dictated that it be preserved rather than torn down. The renovation project cost approx- imately $3.2 million and was completed in July 1982. The cost of the renovation was eight times more expensive than the cost of the original building construction in 1918 which was only $462,549. Battle Hall was another building that was prepared for restoration work rather than torn down. " In the judgment of most people, Battle Hall is the most architecturally prominent building on campus or ar- chitecturally important building. We would be judged out of our minds if we proposed to tear that down and build something else in- stead, " Walls said. The Regents authorized restoration of Battle Hall in 1981. The Spanish Renaissance style which had been used by Cass Gilbert for many buildings on campus was exemplified in Battle Hall when it was built in 1911 at a cost of $325,000. An even more costly renovation project began on Little Campus, located at Martin Luther King and Red River, in 1982. On Oct. 23, 1980, the Board of Regents authorized the initial process for restora- tion of the two buildings, Building C and H, with a total project cost of $3,458,000. The Custer House, Building C, was constructed in 1858, as an asylum for the blind. In 1865-66, General and Mrs. George Armstrong Custer occupied the building for three months during the federal I ' he vaulted entrance to Sutton Hall is restored to its 1918 grandeur. itruction begins on the University Teaching Center, a general purpose classroom building, which will replace the demolished Robert E.

The structure was vacated in 1977 when the Division of Ex- tension was reorganized and moved from the site. The Custer House, which was renamed the Arno Nowotny Center, was particularly expensive to restore since the project was largely a restoration of the building to its 1860 grandeur. " Actually what will be built over there, in the case of Building C, the Custer House, is nothing like what has appeared for a long time there. The present building is a three-story building, and in 1860, it was only two stories, " said Walls. Upon completion, the Arno Nowotny Building would be used as a Visitors ' Information Center. The Little Campus Building, known as Building H, was a boys ' dor- mitory in 1888 and existed as part of the Asylum for the Blind. In the case of Building H, the exterior would be restored to its original condition while the interior would reflect a more contem- porary design. " In that particular case, the various historical groups, in- cluding the State Historical Commission, presented very well their case for wanting the building saved, " said Walls. Upon completion of this project, the 20,376 square-foot building would provide facilities for a satellite Admissions Center and Employee Relations Center. Unlike Sutton Hall and other renovated facilities, Robert E. Lee Hall was not of historical or architectural importance. According to Walls, the " building was not designed really to meet the needs of The University. " Lee Hall was purchased by The University of Texas in 1947, after it had been constructed, and it served as an apartment building for a number of years.

" Commenting on the effects if society ' s increasing emphasis on electronics and technology, Acker said that such demands required architects and engineers to design [detailed and specialized space facilities in the new buildings. (Illustrative of the phenomenon were the research-oriented academic ' programs that required specialized laboratories, classrooms and other support facilities. The Engineering Teaching Center II, was planned to be completed |!n 1983. Costing $25 million, the 10-story building would provide a mew home for the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering would ' ilso find a home after relocation from E. P. Schoch Laboratories and the Petroleum Engineering Building. Located adjacent to the [Engineering Teaching Center II, the Chemical and Petroleum (Engineering Building would provide much needed space for The University ' s top-ranked College of Engineering programs. Another facility which would provide needed classroom space was ' :he University Teaching Center, authorized by the Board of Regents in December 1981, which had a construction contract of almost $14 million. The total project cost of almost $18 million provided the College of Business Administration with 26 major instructional and lecture-theater style classrooms to accommodate 3,500 students in a general purpose classroom building. Another construction project was completed in Memorial Stadium for the beginning of the 1982 Longhorn Football season. A one million dollar Longhorn Centennial Booth, the renovated top level of Bellmont Hall along the west side of the stadium, was paid for with the $3,000 annual membership dues of the 200 Texas Longhorn Education Foundation members. Furnished with the best food and drink, the Centennial Booth gave Exes, their friends and families the opportunity to attend the football game in the comfort of their own enclosed festive environment. In addition to the abundance of new building projects at the main UT-Austin campus that were under construction, several new construction projects were also approved by the Board of Regents for the Balcones Research Center in Northwest Austin: $8.9 million repository and mineral studies laboratory building; a $10.8 million research administration building for the Bureau of Economic Geology and a $14.7 million laboratory facility for the Center for Electromechanics and Center for Energy Studies.

During the 100 years between 1883 and 1983, The University of Texas built one of the most outstanding athletic programs in the country. Over the years, old-timers have accumulated a tremen- dous repertoire of sports stories. Many recall the year that the men ' s and women ' s swim teams won the national championships, or when the baseball team won the 1975 title. Others remember the year Texas won the na- tional golf championship with Crenshaw and Kite. But the event that UT sports fans love to recall more than any other is the 1969 grid-iron battle between the Longhorns and the Arkansas Razorbacks. Several salient factors caused this col- legiate game to stand out as the game of the century. In a year in which college football celebrated its 100th birthday, this game became an important event, not only to the respective universities, but to college foot- ball and to the nation. The game itself was played under the most dramatic of conditions. A battle be- tween two state schools who were bitter Southwest Conference rivals, the game pit- ted the nation ' s number one and number two teams in the contest that would end up determining the 1969 national champion. It was a game of evenly matched teams, big of- fensive plays, strong defensive stands and a dramatic comeback. As then Longhorn head coach Darrell Royal put it, " In just about every way this game typifies why American college football holds such fascination for fans, for players, and even coaches. " For The University of Texas or the Uni- versity of Arkansas, a victory meant the Southwest Conference crown and the prob- ability of wrapping up the national cham- pionship. Giving college football national attention, the game would attract 44,000 spectators to Razorback Stadium in Fayet- teville, Arkansas, including then president of the United States Richard M. Nixon and 50 million television viewers. " Not only was this game good for the respective schools of the Southwest Conference, " said Arkansas head coach Frank Broyles, " it was a showcase for college football. " Said Royal, " The 1969 Arkansas game capped America ' s first century of college football. " The game opened with an invocation from evangelist Billy Graham. Finally, the game that Texas, Arkansas and the nation had been awaiting was under way. No one could have asked for a more exciting contest than they would see on this Dec. 6. Texas fans and the nation saw the Longhorns turn the ball over five times and fall behind 14-0 by the end of the third quarter. Forced to play catch-up ball, the Longhorns elected to go to the air in the fourth quarter, but with a second down and nine yards to go, Longhorn quarterback James Street did not find any receivers open. Street did however, see daylight on the sideline and took off on what would become a 42-yard touchdown run. It was then that Texas decided to gamble and go for a two-point conversion that would ultimately decide the game. The conversion was good and the Longhorns put together the " drive of the century. " On a fourth and three from the Texas 43-yard line, Street 1 CELEBRATES unleashed a 44-yard bomb to tight enJ Randy Peschel. On the next play, halfbaclj Ted Koy powered his way to the 2-yard HnJ setting up Jim Bertelsen ' s game-t touchdown run.

Horns of the conference championship and a berth in the Cotton Bowl against Notre Dame. Texas made another winning come- : ack in that exciting 21-17 game that en- abled the Longhorns to capture its second national championship. The ' Horns ' win over Arkansas also car- ied some tragic overtones. The Tuesday fter the game, Freddie Steinmark, a junior defensive back, found out that his left leg was cancerous and would have to be am- putated. He made a courageous return to the football field at the Cotton Bowl, just three weeks after his operation, to cheer for his teammates from the sidelines. Steinmark bat- tled cancer until his death in June of 1971. When The University built the Scoreboard that currently stands in Memorial Stadium, it was dedicated to his memory. The drama that this game generated has been the topic of many conversations for Longhorn sports fans for years and would be for years to come. As Broyles said, " I speak sincerely when I say I will never forget the 1969 Texas game, and I feel safe in saying that the people of Arkansas and Texas and the many throughout the nation who watched the excellent game on TV will also long remember this spectacle. " Despite the continued excellence of UT ' s athletic pro- grams, this game would always be known as one of the best athletic events in The University ' s history. by Debbie Havis Athletics 225 Why Not the Best? Donna Lopiano talks candidly on one of the nation ' s top women ' s athletic programs As the Victorian era ended and the 1900s began, females started getting out of the drawing rooms of University-area residences and onto the athletic playing fields and courts. Although sports clubs focused primarily on leadership training, they provided athletic activities for women on " play days, " once a week. Occasionally, the women traveled to a tournament at another school. The UT Sports Association, a board com- posed of elected student supervisors, governed these sports clubs. Each club had to have a faculty sponsor. Anna Hiss advised UTSA in its early years. Hiss joined The University in 1918, and later became the director of the Department of Physical Education and women ' s intramural sports. The women ' s gymnasium, later renamed An- na Hiss Gymnasium, was designed with all facilities smaller than competition regula- tions. Hiss did not want the women to com- pete in intercollegiate sports. The late ' 50s and early ' 60s saw the begin- ning of the end for UTSA ' s influence on col- lege athletics for women. Interest in the sports clubs waned as intercollegiate athletics for women began. In 1966, a group of women basketball and volleyball players asked UT for money to start athletic programs in their respective sports. The first year of women ' s athletics on g 5 an intercollegiate level began with an alloca- u tion of $700. The following year produced three new teams: golf, gymnastics and bad- minton. Swimming joined the program in 1969. In 1974, the Department of Women ' s Athletics was formed as a financially independent entity. Dr. Donna Lopiano was hired as the director in 1975, and has guided the program toward success through 1982-83. The new athletic director faced many uphill battles, and still manag- ed to come out ahead. At the start, Lopiano had to deal with finding funds for the fledgling department. Some supporters of the men ' s athletic program were afraid of the women ' s department, and thought that they would sink both programs in a deathly funding merger. The takeover of women ' s athletics by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) from the Association for Intercollegiate Ath.etics for Women (AIAW) in the early ' 70s was another major headache for 226 Women ' s Athletics at The University Dr. Donna Lopiano, women ' s athletic director. Lopiano, who fought the takeover on a nation-wide battlefield fro her position as president of AIAW in its last year. The University of Texas proved a definite commitment to women ' athletics even before the Title IX controversy. (Title IX, among ot effects, made sexual discrimination in collegiate athletics illegal.) T women ' s program germinated under President Steven Spurr in 1972. The m president of UT, Dr. Lorene Rogers, con tinued giving support to the women, morall and financially. Rogers assigned all funds ac cruing from the 1977-78 blanket tax increa: to the women ' s program. This upped the share of the new $26 tax to $8. The men ' : athletic program received the other $18. President Rogers also asked the men department to give $150,000 to the women ' : athletic department, and then matched th men ' s contribution with $150,000 in unallocated University funds. These dona tions upped the women ' s budget, from $229,969 in 1976-77, to $421,147 in 1977-78. In 1977, President Rogers agreed to t special order that enabled women athletes to light up The Tower in the event of a victory. And light it up they did, as golf and tennis both won state championships within foud days of each other. For almost the entire decade preceding 1982-83, UT was honored as having the most outstanding wom en ' s athletic program in Texas, in winning the Mildred " Babe " Didrickson Zaharias All-Sports Trophy. In 1981-82, UT women lit up the entire Tower three times, for win- ning national championships in volleyball, swimming and diving, and track and field. Basketball and golf finished second in the AIAW na- tional championships. Following is a conversation held with Lopiano in the spring of 1983 which covered a few bases including the NCAA takeover, what it was like to be the first women ' s athletic director at The University of Texas, and the details of recruiting and funding. CACTUS: What was it like to be the first women ' s athletic director? LOPIANO: The fact that I ' m still here after eight years is more amaz ing to me. Actually, it was pretty smooth. Texas made a commitment to women ' s athletics in 1972, when Steven Spurr started the Women ' s Athletic Department. Everybody got caught up in the Title IX Whaley steals from the Razorbacks and gives to the ' Horns .. kfi I Ldy Longhorn Tara Arnold fights for the lead at the Texas Relays. business, which was unfortunate. Texas committed itself to women ' s athletics before Title IX ever came about. One thing that happened in the first year illustrates the times pretty well. I went into a store to buy a stereo and some components. The sales rep asked me if I wanted a two or three year warranty extension, and I said I wasn ' t sure. He ask- ed me where I worked, and when I told him I was Texas ' new Women ' s Athletics Director, he said I wouldn ' t need an extended warranty! CACTUS: What has been your greatest satisfaction? LOPIANO: This is so hard to answer, because most people expect me to say ' the first national championship, ' but that ' s not really it. Not that it was anticlimatical, but the challenge was starting those sports that weren ' t yet established. I ' d say the most rewarding ex- perience was going out and getting Jody Conradt (women ' s basketball coach). We spent the money to get the best coaches and establish scholarships. Then, when we hired Paul Bergen (women ' s swim coach), in one year, he took the swim team to the top 20. That ' s really a greater achievement than going from No. 2 to No. 1. CACTUS: What is your greatest priority? LOPIANO: Our priority is the athlete herself. When we are looking at a prospective coach, we tell them that we are not only interested in a winning program, but an educational program. Ninety-three percent of all female athletes who have completed four years of athletic eligibility (at Texas) have graduated. In nine years, five scholarship athletes have left due to academics. Because we care about our student athletes as humans, as people, our graduation rate is very high. Take any class of incoming freshmen, and 50 percent won ' t make it. Ninety-five percent of ours do. CACTUS: How has the NCAA takeover affected your program? LOPIANO: Drastically. Just to switch over to NCAA (from AIAW) cost us $153,000. That includes telephone bills, postage, summer school financial aid, recruiting visits and the coaches ' expenses. I ' m bothered by the increased stress for the coaches. Now, they spend long hours recruiting that they didn ' t under AIAW. Our coaches haven ' t let recruiting take away from coaching, though; they still spend quality time with the players. . . . President Rogers agreed to an order that enabled women athletes to light up the Tower . . . and light it up they did, as golf and tennis both won state champion- ships within four days of each other. The athletes are hurt, too, especially the economically disadvantag- ed ones. Under AIAW, athletes could get a full scholarship for their school expenses such as tuition and books, and they could also get a needs-based Pell Grant, and a job if they needed it. Under NCAA, they can ' t work except for Christmas, Easter and summers. We are on- ly allowed to give them $400 for living expenses above their school expenses. CACTUS: One of your major concerns about the switchover was that recruiting wars would develop. Has that happened? LOPIANO: Yes, and the sad thing is that they ' re to no advantage. Under NCAA, we spend all this money, and everybody gets the same players they would have gotten under AIAW. (Note: Under AIAW, no one could talk to players; players had to pay Women ' s Athletics at The University 227 their own way to campus; coaches were not funded for scouting trips where all they could do was watch the players scrimmage, or films of the players.) CACTUS: How important was it that Lorene Rogers was president of The University, and Darrell Royal head of men ' s athletics at the time? LOPIANO: Lorene Rogers takes a just amount of credit for the UT women ' s athletic program, as she should for all the support she gave us. Lorene wouldn ' t limit the money we needed to offer salaries high enough to get the best coaches. I was able to pay what I wanted, within reason. Actually Darrell Royal has been maligned in the press. He ' s never been against women ' s athletics, per se. Rather, he wanted women ' s Mark Dcschenes athletics to get off to the right start. Royal did the right thing in refu ing to fund women ' s athletics, because if he hadn ' t, both department would have gone under. There just wasn ' t that kind of money. If 1 hadn ' t acted as he did, The University of Texas wouldn ' t have gon looking for alternate sources of money, and women ' s athleticl wouldn ' t be where it is today. CACTUS: How are you funded now? LOPIANO: We get $500,000 from the optional student athletic tax Another $250,000 is our own earnings from gate receipts and progran advertising. We also get a $250,000 slice of the interest on the foott option seating program, and $850,000 comes from the interest of th auxiliary enterprises account.

CACTUS: In 1975, two weeks on the job, you said, " We don ' t want to become big business like men ' s athletics. " Is that still true? I ' m looking at a pretty hefty budget, plush offices, several national cham- pionships . . . LOPIANO: I think to answer that, I need to define what I meant by " big business. " Men ' s athletics are often geared to the profit motive. We are aiming always at educational athletics, with an ancillary public interest factor. Many business people go to the men ' s athletic func- tions for the social and business aspect of being a season ticket holder. Our fans are at our games because they care about our players and our program. That ' s why they go to the games. That ' s why we ' re here. Dr. Donna Lopiano came to The University to develop a first-rate women ' s athletic program. She led the Longhorns up every step of a long ladder to the top. The amazing thing is not that she has been here eight years, but how much she has accomplished in only eight years. " Our fans are at our games because they care about our players and our program. That ' s why they go to the games. That ' s why we ' re here. " The women ' s athletic program began in 1966 with a budget of $700, and has since grown to one of more than $1 million. While the men ' s athletic budget still far surpassed the women ' s in 1983, laurels won by women ' s teams have reflected the success of their program. Through all the budget battles, the arrivals and departures of coaches, the individual aches of athletes, and the lighting of the Tower, it has been the diploma in the hands of an athlete that has meant the most to Donna Lopiano. by Tammerie Brotzman Women ' s Athletics at The University 229 i 230 Football Football 231 Utah on Sept. 18, the Memorial Stadium crowd of 70,158 was anxious to see if ' 82 would be a year to remember, or if they would have to rely on memories of ' 81. Texas 21 Utah 12 It took the Longhorns just over a quarter to get their first points of the season. After a Ute field goal, Texas responded with a touchdown drive capped by a 5-yard run. Orr added another score, from 22 yards out, shortly before halftime to give the ' Horns a 14-3 lead. After a failed 2-point conversion, Texas clung to a slim 14-12 lead. Utah had scored on a 44-yard field goal and a 15 -yard pass. The ' Horns responded with an impressive 75-yard, 10-play drive, behind the power run- ning of senior tailback Darryl Clark, who finished with 162 yards rushing, and senior fullback Carl Robinson who swept right for a 9-yard TD which turned out to be the clin- ching score. by Jeff Berger Texas 21 Missouri The Missouri Tigers invaded Memorial Stadium Sept. 25 expecting to meet a relentless Texas offense and to romp on a troubled Longhorn defense. Instead, the ' Horn defenders did the romping all over Missouri ' s third-ranked offense, holding them to only 13 yards rushing on 40 carries, and allowing just eight first downs, as Texas rubbed out the Tigers, 21-0. The Longhorn defenders even rang up a touchdown of their own when, with 2:37 re- maining, defensive tackle John Haines stripped Tiger quarterback Marlon Adler of the ball and end Ed Williams, subbing for injured Eric Holle, fell on the wayward pigskin for his first collegiate touchdown. Texas struck first, in the first quarter, when flanker Herkie Walls, took a reverse handoff and zipped down the right sideline for an 80-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead. From then on, until the fourth quarter, the ' Horns ' defense took over. The hustling ' Horns caused four fumbles and one in- terception, broke up five passes and killed everything Missouri tried. The ' Horns ' offense woke up again in the fourth quarter for an impressive 51 -yard drive, capped by an 8-yard scamper by junior tailback John Walker. by Ed Lambert Sooner Johnny Fontanette and Longhorn K iki DeAyala point accusing fingers after an offsides penalty. Kiki was right. 1 232 Football Texas 34 Rice? On Oct. 2, after lying dormant for most of the first quarter, the Texas Longhorns ' of- fensive attack finally took advantage of several Rice turnovers, erupting for four straight touchdowns before the half to defeat the Owls 34-7 in the first Southwest Conference game for both teams. Texas head coach Fred Akers had decided before the game to play the second-team of- fensive at the start of the second quarter to give the alternates a chance to play in a pressure situation. They responded well, as sophomore Todd Dodge fired a completion over the middle to the only starter in the lineup, Herkie Walls, who scampered 64 yards to the Rice 6-yard line. Two plays later, running back Mike Luck swept around the right side for two yards and a touchdown. Minutes later, Dodge himself scored from the two for his first touchdown as a Longhorn. Brewer and the first-teamers got back in the game and promptly drove 59 yards to set up a 1-yard Carl Robinson touchdown, stretching th ' e Longhorns ' lead to 28-0 at halftime. When he offense was not on the field, the ' Horns so-called " young, inexperienced and suspect " defensive was doing an ex- cellent job containing quarterback Philip Money and the the Owl offense. Kicker Raul Allegre scored Texas ' only points of the second half, connecting on field goals of 22 and 23 yards. As a result of this win, the Longhorns moved from 15th to 13th in the Associated Press poll and braced themselves for their annual bloodbath in Dallas with the Oklahoma Sooners. by Jeff Berger Texas 22 Oklahoma 28 Despite a heart-wrenching offensive show that included 235 yards passing for Texas quarterback Robert Brewer, the Longhorn football team suffered its first loss of the season at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners, 28-22. In the traditional Dallas showdown on Oct. 9, the Sooners rambled for 384 yards to beat the Texas Longhorns for the first time since 1978. Robert Brewer set four school passing records in ' 82. Junior tailback John " Sky " Walker takes to the air while attempting a first down during the Longhorns ' 34-7 defeat of the Rice Owls. " We played a good football game, with a lot of scratching and clawing, " A kers said, after losing his second game to OU in six years at Texas, adding, " I think we treated the fans to a hell of a football game: unfor- tunately, the other team won it. " In the first quarter, OU freshman tailback Marcus Dupree, who started in place of in- jured senior Stanley Wilson, faked a reverse handoff and raced untouched around the right side for 3 yards, a touchdown, and a 7- Sooner lead. Texas struck back in the second quarter with an 80-yard drive to tie the game, 7-7. Brewer pitched left on an option to Mike Luck for 11 yards and on the next play scampered himself for 11 more. The Longhorns scored when Brewer rolled right and threw to a tumbling Herkie Walls in the right edge of the end zone. On OU ' s next possession, a 25-yard pass play, a three-yard TD run upped the score to 14-7. Texas added a 32-yard field goal just before the half to close the gap to 14-10. OU fullback Weldon Ledbetter caught the Texas linebackers edging to the outside in the third quarter and broke up the middle for a 59-yard touchdown run, stretching the Sooner lead to 21-10. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Brewer led Texas on another long scoring drive, throwing passes to Brent Duhon and Bobby Micho. Tailback John Walker soared over the goal line from the three-yard line to bring Texas within four points of the lead. After the score, Texas attempted a two-point conversion, but failed when a pass from Brewer to Carl Robinson was broken up. The Sooners stretched their lead to 28-16, then Ledbetter scored on a 15-yard run. The drive had been set up by fullback Fred Sims ' 51-yard run. Brewer took Texas on one more scoring drive. Passing on almost every down to con- serve time, Brewer finally found Herkie Walls, this time for a 27-yard touchdown, cutting the Sooner lead to 28-22. Texas got the ball back one more time, with enough time to score, but the drive ended when a lunging Sooner deflected a third down Brewer pass to Duhon. After Texas punted, OU quarterback Kelly Phelps picked up a first down on a 12-yard bootleg and the Sooners ran out the clock. Texas had lost to OU, but the Longhorns quickly forgot the chants of " Poor Texas " as they looked toward their most important oppo- nent: SMU. by Douglas Johnson Texas 17 SMU On Oct. 23, fate favored the fourth- ranked SMU Mustangs in week eight of I SWC football, SMU ' s Heisman Trophy can- didate Eric Dickerson led SMU with 118 yards to gallop over the 19th ranked Longhorns. The game got off to a sluggish start with the first quarter ending scoreless. The sec- ond quarter lit up the Scoreboard as Dicker- son ran for a touchdown, and a successful kick put the Mustangs ahead, 7-0. Third quarter action brought the Mustangs still further ahead of the ' Horns when SMU ' s | Jeff Harrell kicked a 30-yard field goal. The ' Horns did not give up; they still had gusto in the fourth quarter. Only a few minutes into the final quarter, Robert Brewer completed a 51 -yard pass to Bobby Micho and Raul Allegre successfully kicked an extra point. The ' Horns mounted a drive, but SMU cut it short and the ' Horns settled for a 41- yard field goal by Allegre that left the game in a stalemate.

Minutes later, SMU ' s Lance Mcllhenny threw a pass to Bobby Leach which tipped Longhorn Jitter Fields ' fingers and landed in Leach ' s hands, giving SMU a 17-10 lead. With 49 seconds left, Mcllhenny com- pleted a pass to Craig James, ending the game in SMU ' s favor, 30-17. Center Mike Reuther was named offensive MVP with eight pins and graded the highest score of action during the game by any offensive lineman in UT history. by Sharlyn Kidd Texas 27 Texas Tech Texas quarterback Robert Brewer engineered the Longhorns ' comeback from two straight losses, giving Texas Tech an ap- propriate Halloween nightmare in the form of three touchdown runs, the first coming just before halftime on a tense fourth-and- goal from the Red Raider two-yard line. " We just played our game, " said UT defensive end Kiki DeAyala, who recorded two quarterback sacks. " It was a brutally basic running attack and sound, aggressive defense. We just needed a couple of breaks to go our way, " he said. The Red Raiders provided several of those breaks, fumbling the ball away three times, two on errant quarterback pitches. The Texas defense took advantage of Tech ' s mistakes, limiting the Red Raiders ' offense to 33 yards in the first half and only 134 yards for the game. On their first possession in the third quarter, the ' Horns scored after driving 80 yards in 15 plays, 14 of those on the ground. Later, Brewer scoied on a five-yard bootleg and Allegre added field goals of 33 and 37 yards in the fourth quarter. A last Tech drive died at the UT seven when reserve Michael Feldt recovered another Tech fumble. The defeat of Tech was Texas ' first shutout of a SWC team since a 13-0 muffling of Baylor in 1979. by Douglas Johnson Texas 50 Houston On Nov. 6, the Texas Longhorns opened up their offense in sheer razzle-dazzle style, full of delayed draw plays, bombs and fake reverses, defeating the Houston Cougars 50- 0.

Texas never let up as they bullied their way to their biggest win since a 72-15 victory over Rice in 1977. With the crowd screaming for the ' Horns to run the score up, Texas capitalized on seven Houston turnovers for 26 of their 50 points. Using a trailing wind, Brewer hit receiver Herkie Walls, the lead receiver for the day with three catches for 96 yards, at the Houston 30-yard line with a 67-yard bomb, for Texas ' second touchdown. Shortly after Walls ' score, Houston donated a safety to the ' Horns ' cause when punter Lonnie Stokes fumbled a snap and was chased out of his end zone to give the ' Horns a 16-0 lead. A pair of interceptions on deflected passes by UT ' s Jitter Fields and Craig Curry, put the ' Horns in easy range for an 11-yard touchdown by Ervin Davis and a 1-yard scoring sneak by Brewer, giving the ' Horns a 30-0 halftime lead. After hitting five of 13 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns, Brewer left the game for good, with 6:46 remaining in the third quarter. Raul Allegre kicked two third quarter field goals of 30 and 42 yards which raised the ' Horns lead to 36-0. Two fourth- quarter touchdowns on a 6-yard run by John Walker and a 1-yarder by Davis finished off the UT scoring blitz. by Melanie Wilson Texas 38 TCU21 On Nov. 13, the Texas Longhorns, com- ing from a 50-0 win over the University of Houston, rolled into Fort Worth to defeat the TCU Horned Frogs 38-21. Trailing 21-17 at the half, Texas struck for three second- half touchdowns, averting an upset. Led by tailback Marcus Gilbert, TCU took the opening kickoff and mounted an impressive drive to the Texas 5-yard line, where Ken Ozee kicked the first of his three field goals. Texas took the lead late in the first quarter when quarterback Robert Brewer hit a wide-open Herkie Walls in the end zone for a 31-yard touchdown. The Texas defense came up with a big play when deffensive end Mike Buchannan blocked a TCU punt and returned it 27 yards for a Longhorn touchdown. A 41 -yard Raul Allegre field goal extended the ' Horns lead to 17-3 early in the second quarter. The Frogs quickly countered with another field goal. Soon afterward, TCU linebacker Darrell Patterson intercepted a Brewer pass at the 30-yard line. On the Frogs ' next offen- sive play, a 70-yard touchdown pass cut the Longhorn lead to 17-12. Texas safety Jerry Gray intercepted the 2-point conversion. TCU ' s defense stopped the ' Horns at mid- field and after a short Texas punt, the Horn- ed Frogs needed only four plays to take the lead. After another missed 2-point conver- sion, TCU held an 18-17 lead. A fumble from Longhorn fullback Ervin Davis gave TCU an opportunity to stretch their lead. Ozee Darryl Clark (33) signals the touchdown as Robert Brewer (16) follows the block of Mike Reuther (57) for 6 of Texas ' 50 points against the Houston Cougars. Football 237 added a 52-yard field goal with nine seconds to play in the half. Texas took the lead back for keeps in the third quarter, when Brewer directed a 72- yard drive, with Darryl Clark sweeping left for the final seven yards. The Houston senior added another touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, capping a 44-yard march, with a score from two yards out. Late in the game, John Walker outran the TCU defense for a 61 -yard touchdown scamper, giving the Longhorns a 38-21 vic- tory. The ' Horns ' third straight win gave them a 6-2 record heading into the Baylor game at Waco. by Jeff Berger Texas 31 Baylor 23 On Nov. 20, 17th-ranked Texas defeated Baylor, 31-23. The ' Horns scored 17 points in a wild fourth quarter, piled up 454 yards of total offense for the game, and stopped a determined Bear offense on a fourth and one from the UT 6-yard line with 46 seconds left. The ' Horns scored first, after a 71-yard drive on a 2-yard run by freshman fullback Ervin Davis to lead 7-0. Baylor tied the score with a 23-yard screen pass play from quarter- back Mike Brannan to Mike Lively. The Bears then went ahead 10-7 on Ben Perry ' s 53-yard field goal, the longest of his career. But only three plays later, Brewer found Walls open for an 80-yard scoring bomb and a 14-10 halftime advantage for the ' Horns. In the third quarter, Baylor regained the lead with a 10-yard touchdown on a faked pitch to the right side by Brannan. Texas began the fourth quarter with a 34- yard Raul Allegre field goal that tied the game, 17-17. The ' Horns then surged ahead 24-17 when Brewer threw to Walls for a 52- yard TD. Baylor countered with an 80-yard scoring drive of their own, 44 yards of which came on a bomb from Brannan to wide receiver Bruce Davis. The score came on a 7-yard pass to McNeil over UT ' s right cor- nerback Fred Acorn. But Baylor still trailed 24-23 when Mossy Cade broke up Brannan ' s two point conversion attempt. After Baylor ' s last touchdown, Texas was trying to run down the clock, but Clark was not about to quit. He popped through a huge hole over the left tackle at the Bear 38 and sprinted all the way to the two before being pushed out of bounds. Two plays later, Davis bulled over for his second touchdown of the game and a 31-23 lead; but ironically, Clark ' s effort left Baylor with enough time to mount one last attack.

' .-I On a cold, drizzly Thanksgiving Day, the Longhorns rolled up their fifth straight win of the season, stomping the Texas Aggies, 53-16. The ' Horns notched up seven touchdowns, six extra points, a field goal and a safety in piling up their biggest win over A M since a 52-14 drubbing in 1970. " This may be the best effort club we ' ve had. They keep humping it, " said Akers. Tailback Darryl Clark started the humping early when on the ' Horns ' first offensive play, he took a pitchout to the right and lofted a pass to flanker Herkie Walls for an 87-yard touchdown and a quick 7-0 lead. Three Ervin Davis touchdown runs of 2, 3 and 27 yards put Texas on top with a 27-0 first quarter lead. The Aggies came back in the second quarter. Billy Cannon returned a punt 57 yards to set up a short drive that ended with a 3-yard TD pass from quarterback Gary Kubiak to tight end John Kellen. On Texas ' next possession, tailback John Walker fumbled, setting up a 39-yard Aggie field goal. UT ' s lead had been shaved, 27-10. Texas then took the momentum back when quarterback Robert Brewer threw a 6- yard scoring pass to tight end Bobby Micho for a 34-10 halftime lead. Texas kicker Raul Allegre upped the lead to 37-10 in the third quarter with his longest field goal of the year a 51-yarder. The defense then got into the scoring when end Kiki DeAyala and tackle Tony Degrate sacked Kubiak in the end zone for a safety. Not much later the rout increased to 46-10 with a 32-yard bomb from Brewer to Walls. The two teams traded touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Texas ' running back Mike Luck scored on an 8-yard run and the Ag- gies ' second quarterback, John Elkins, passed eight yards to flanker Tommy Sugg with about a minute left. The Longhorn offense had a balanced at- tack, shredding the Aggies for 279 yards rushing and 222 passing. The defense held A M to 50 yards on the ground and 166 through the air. by Dougjohnson Texas 33 Arkansas 7 Before 68,000 in Memorial Stadium and millions more watching on national televi- sion, Texas remembered and revenged the 1981 " Humiliation in Fayetteville " with a 33-7 defeat of the Razorbacks.

But after a 46-yard touchdown pass from Arkansas ' s Brad Taylor to Gary Ander- son tied the game, the ' Horns dulled the Razorbacks and dominated the next three quarters both offensively and defensively. After a 37-yard touchdown pass from Robert Brewer to Herkie Walls on the first play of the second quarter, the ' Horns never looked back. They subjected the Hogs to their 48th loss in the 64th meeting between the universities. Turnovers stopped six Hog drives three lost fumbles and three pass interceptions. The Texas defense sacked the Hog quarterbacks six times, each ending a potential drive. The Texas offense continued its scoring output with 137 yards rushing and 181 yards passing. Running back Darryl Clark gained 97 yards to become the first Longhorn since Earl Camp- bell to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a single season. Teammate Brewer broke a school record with 12 touchdown passes in a single season. The ' Horns ' final test of the season would come on Christmas Day at the Sun Bowl in El Paso against the Atlantic Coast Conference ' s North Carolina. by Reuben Galceran Texas 10 North Carolina 26 The ' Horns managed to shake off two mid -season losses and win six contests to earn a bid to the Sun Bowl in El Paso. UT led early with a touchdown coming from a blocked punt which Ronnie Mullins fell on in the end zone. The teams traded field goals in the second quarter and at halfttme, the ' Horns had the upper hand, 10-3. Despite that lead, the game as a whole was one of missed opportunities for Texas. Three times in the second quarter, the Longhorns got control of the ball in North Carolina ter- ritory, but achieved only a lone Raul Allegre field goal. After the half, the ' Horns twice took possession in the Heels ' end of the field, but the two series faltered. The first ended on a fumble, and the second died when a swarm- ing Carolina defense twice stopped powerful ' Horn fullback Ervin Davis at the one-yard line. The Heels plunged onward for 23 fourth quarter points, taking the lead on three field goals, a touchdown and a fumble recovery in the end zone. by Jeff Berger 1 Texas cheerleaders brave the snow to sing the " Eyes.

Texas lost 26-10. 240 Football The Spirit J.t took an incredible amount of gymnastic ability and many long hours of practice to develop the distinctive Texas style that defined the cheerleading team as one of the top squads in the nation. By competing in contests during cheerleading camp at the University of Tennessee in August, the squad qualified for the National Cheerleaders Association Championship in Dallas on Jan. 8. Memphis State won first place at the championship contest while the ' Horns tied for second place with the University of Florida. Although the ' Horns tied the Gators for second place, they were still rather disappointed. " Memphis State had 34 members on their squad and Florida State had 14, while Texas had only 10. I don ' t think the judges were quite ready for that. It was a little unfair, " said Longhorn cheerleader Martin Luecke. Five of the 1982 cheerleaders had been cheerleaders in 1981. These were Garry Day, Pepe Martinez, Scott Cole, Susan Fumic, DeeAnna Gilliam and Patrick Goudeau. Other members of the cheerleading squad were Douglas Mercer, Martin Luecke, Traci Wilcots, Stacey Beasley, Dee Carter and Lance Watson. Six alternates were chosen to help the cheerleaders during the rigorous basketball season. These basketball cheerleaders were: Joe Ford, Tracy Brannsford, Joe Center, Leslie Scott, Cara Garner and Goudeau. Fumic and Martinez were elected as head cheerleaders to lead the squad throughout the athletic seasons. Many of the Longhorn cheerleaders had had previous gymnastic experience and training before making the UT squad. Long hours of practice went into perfecting new and traditional yells and routines. The total number of hours spent cheering, practicing and attending various functions like alumni parties and parades amounted to approximately 20 hours per week. In spite of all the work involved, the squad enjoyed representing UT wherever they went. by Melanie Wilson FOOTBALL CHEERLEADERS: FIRST ROW: Susan Marie Fumic, Deeanna Gilliam, Dee Ann Carter, Stacey Diane Beasley, Traci Siobhann Wilcots.

But that ' s going to have to be the nature of this team their understanding that for us to get better, they are going to have to keep playing harder, " said Texas head coach Bob Weltlich. The season saw the departure of players, some on their own initiative, others as the result of prompting by Weltlich; the arrival of several walk-ons and in the midst of this unrest, the setting of a school record of 22 losses in a single season. At one point during the season, walk-ons numbered seven. The team returned five lettermen, but only two survived the season. Mike Wacker, who had not played since his 1982 knee injury against Baylor in Waco, was redshirted for the year to let his knee recuperate further under therapy. James Booker injured his finger and ended his college career missing the last eight games. Only Bill Wendlandt and Carlton Cooper manged to endure the season. " I certainly don ' t feel cheated, " said Wendlandt. " I ' m honored to play for Texas. What happened to us is unfortunate, but everybody has problems. " The ' Horns started the season Nov. 27 against North Carolina Wesleyan. The 53-42 win was Texas ' 63rd season opening victory in 77 seasons. The win was also one of the few the team would encounter. The non-conference schedule brought five of the Longhorns ' six wins. Besides beating North Carolina Wesleyan, the ' Horns beat Biscayne College, Harvard and Missouri Western State in Austin and North Carolina-Charlotte in the consolation game of the Cable Car Classic. Heading into SWC play with a 5-5 record, the ' Horns faced the Frogs of TCU on Jan. 3. The Frogs left Austin with a 70-54 win. " Against TCU we appeared disorganized a lot of the time and we weren ' t nearly as competitive on the backboards as we needed to be, " said Weltlich. " Whatever the reason, and I ' m sure immaturity had a lot to do with it we just didn ' t have the poise and patience we needed to have. " The ' Horns did not taste victory again until the meeting against the Rice Owls Jan. 19 in Austin. Texas had lost to Kansas State, Texas Tech and Houston. Texas won its only SWC game over the Owls by the score of 47-45 in which the ' Horns only had eight players suited out. " It was a critical game for us because of all the adversity we had undergone in the previous two or three days, " said Weltlich. " We threw three new kids in there and had a couple come off the bench. I can ' t say enough about the performance of our players. It wasn ' t a well played game but it was a game they won with character and pride, " he added. Texas experienced a shuffle of personnel before the Rice game when letterman Jack Worthington decided to leave and trans- ferred to Southwest Texas State. Injuries to freshman Karl Willock and junior Don Ellis left the team with two starters. " When things don ' t go well, we sit back and say, ' Here we go again, ' " said Weltlich. " That happpens when you lose a lot. " k - . F, lew;; ' FIRST ROW: Bubba Simpson, Spanky Stephens, Jimmy Carlson, Mitchell J. Parrish, Karl J. Willock, Brett D.

Texas headed into the SWC Basketball tournament as the cellar team March 7, to face the Mustangs of SMU. It was the sec- ond meeting in three days between the two teams. SMU beat Texas 95-67 in Dallas March 5, ending conference play and send- ing the two teams into tournament play. SMU was projected to repeat its 28-point victory of two nights earlier over Texas and advance in the tournament. But the Longhorns showed the Mustangs what to expect in years to come by taking SMU to a last second tip-in play by Texas ' Cooper. The basket was ruled invalid and SMU squeezed by with a 49-48 win. " I heard the buzzer when I was on the [ground, " said Cooper. " I saw two refs under i the basket say it was good, but the other one I was waving his hands. " The Longhorns finished their 77th year of basketball with only six wins. But the die- hard play of the squad members on the court showed the crowd that they would not lose without putting up a fight. " When two guys start out even, our guy falls a step behind, he ' d better dive for it, because that ' s the only way he ' s going to get it, " said Weltlich. " It ' s (the season) been wearing on the team for some time, " said freshman David Seitz. " We ' ve kept a decent attitude. We ' re not going to quit.

One month later, Bob Weltlich, head basketball coach from the University of Mississippi, became the 24th Longhorn basketball coach. " I think Bob Weltlich is one of the best coaches in the country, " said Athletic Direc- tor DeLoss Dodds upon hiring Weltlich. " I haven ' t even thought about this program failing. Before Bob was hired, I personally talked to many, many basketball people across the country. There ' s no doubt in my- mind that he ' ll produce a winner, " he said. Weltlich brought to the University his discipline, a team-orientated system which relied on a strong man-to-man defense and a patient offense. He learned this system from Indiana coach Bobby Knight when he was an assistant there from 1971-1976. The next six years, Weltlich spent at Mississippi where he built a winning program. Upon his arrival in Austin, Weltlich encountered a Texas program that had experienced the departure of several lettermen. Numerous injuries plagued the program and several walk-ons in the fall had to be trained to accommodate for the small number of scholarship players that remained. Weltlich ' s program consisted of an off- season training program, a curfew and a no- interview policy which forbade players from interviewing with the media without his permission. Weltlich knew what it took to produce a winner at Texas and it was going to be done his way, or the player had to go. He made his point when Robert Hughes was released from the team in the middle of the season. But other players knew that Weltlich ' s system could produce a winning j program at The University. " I think that learning Coach Weltlich ' s system h as made me a lot better player, " said I junior forward Bill Wendlandt. " I have a i mental discipline now that I don ' t think 1 1 had before. " A major concern of Weltlich ' s was the I recruiting of players onto a team-oriented program. " Our program is going to center around good people, good athletes, good workers, and it ' s going to be in that order, " Coach Bob Weltlich (far right) and his coaching staff watch the Longhorns suffer another loss, this one at the hands of SMU. The ' Horns lost 22 games, setting a new school rec 246 Texas Basketball said Weltlich. " We only recruit those players that we think can adapt to our program. " But recruiting would take time to yield prac- tical results toward a successful program. Recruiting is very important, even then you ' re talking about dealing with freshmen that are inexperienced, " Weltlich said. Weltlich ' s 1983 high school recruiting ef- forts netted what he believed would be four team-oriented players: Raynard Davis, Mar- cus Bolden, Jerry Holmes and George Davis. In spite of the Longhorns ' dismal showing in 1982, all four of these high school blue chip- pers had elected to play their college basket- ball at The University in 1983. Weltlich ' s first season at UT ended with a 6-22 record. The 22 losses broke the school record of 20 games lost in a season in 1955 and 1959. " I think it ' s to the team ' s credit that they play like they play. That ' s what the tragedy is. You ' re not always rewarded by the efforts, " Weltlich said. " When I was at Ole Miss, they averaged only about 2,000 (fans) a game, " said Weltlich. " I guess it is the American way of life to be intolerable of losers. And what ' s wrong with that? That ' s just the nature of the beast, " he said. " We ' ve made a lot of progress, " said sophomore center Carleton Cooper. Next I year we ' ll turn it around. If we work hard, we, can have a great season. " " We ' ll have our injured players back and maybe (Mike) Wacker will be back, " said Wendlandt. " I think things are already look- ing up. We ' ve just got to keep learning and our attitude is already improving, " he added. But how long would it take Weltlich to revive a program that had taken a beating worse than death 22 times over? " It could be next year, it could be three or four years, I don ' t know. But we ' re striving to be competitive. And I feel confident we ' ll get there, " said Weltlich. Persius, a Greek philosopher, said, " He conquers who endures. " Weltlich had more than endured the 1982-83 season. He was waiting to conquer and bring a winning pride to the Drum. by Reuben Galceran 1 Wendlandt gets an elbow from a Tech player.

" I help us, " she added. think this one made it one for the giant and The ' Horns also returned seniors Nancy one for David. " Walling, Cathy McDonald and Cheryl Texas coach Jody Conradt had just seen her ' Horns fall to Louisiana Tech in the Midwest regional final. The game ended Texas ' 25 -game winning streak and was only the third loss of the year. The 1982-83 basketball team entered the season as the fifth-ranked team in the nation ' s preseason polls, marking the first time the women ' s basketball team had made the Top 10 preseason poll. In addition to being ranked, the Lady ' Horns returned all five starters from the 1981-82 campaign. Returning were Annette Smith, Terri Mackey, Sherryl Hauglum, Esoleta Whaley and Joy Williams. " It doesn ' t matter who starts for us the best thing is that we have 14 players who can play, " Conradt said. " We have more depth and competition for playing time this year than we ' ve ever had. It ' s an interesting Hartman. Hartman returned to the team after recuperating from a knee injury. Entering her seventh year at Texas, Conradt had won more than 28 games in each of her six pervious seasons. The 1982 season ' s 30-3 record brought Conradt ' s Texas record to 228-43 and an .841 winning percentage (345-106 career record). Conradt had also led her teams to four consecutive national tournament appearances. " When I came here, we built our program around ' technique ' players, not necessarily the most athletic, but they worked very hard in structured programs learning the necessary skills, " Conradt said. " Now we ' re seeing the athletes emerge. These players may not be very strong in technique, but they possess raw talent. " Because of this " raw talent, " Conradt considered the freshmen as the " most offensively skilled group " ever recruited. " Their shooting and ball-handling skills are quite advanced. They will help us right away, " Conradt added. After finishing second in the AIAWl national championships in 1982, Texas entered the season under the NCAA banner. To earn the automatic bid berth to the NCAA Tournament, a SWC conference tournament was held with the SWC winner | receiving the bid. Before Texas entered conference play, the I ' Horns faced the toughest non-conference schedule in their history. The Lady I Longhorns faced several top-ranked teams | within three weeks. In their first 12 games, the ' Horns lost two! games but beat powerhouses Tennessee, I Kansas State and California-Berkeley by an I average score of 20 points. Texas also beat I Indiana, Oregon State, Oregon, Drake, Iowa | State and Stephen F. Austin. " It is enjoyable being ranked and pub- 1 licity has been positive, " said Conradt. " The! 248 Texas Basketball first two games have brought us down to earth. The players everyone tends to believe what they read in the newspapers . . . that we are a great team. But we can ' t forget how we got here with hard work. If we ' re ready to buckle down and take that respon- sibility, then we ' ll be all right. No matter who we would be looking forward to play- ing, we still have work to do, " she said. The team ' s two losses came against Nebraska in the finals of the Nebraska In- vitational and against defending NCAA champions Louisiana Tech at the Giusti Tournament of Champions. The tournament fielded an elite collection of teams that included second-ranked Loui- siana Tech, seventh-ranked California State- Long Beach, in addition to Portland State, Oregon, Oregon State, Colorado, Washing- ton and Texas. Texas won the tournament in 1979 when they upset the Bruins of UCLA. " The first year we won the tournament and became the favorites of the fans and people out there, " said Conradt. " We ' re excited to be going back. " Entering conference play with a 10-2 record, the Lady Longhorns were facing a much improved conference. The SWC had set up the first official conference schedule for women which was based on a single round-robin format. Even though the teams play each other twice, the games that counted in conference standings were the games played at the field that corresponded to the SWC football schedule. " It ' s hard to play anyone just anywhere. " Coach Jody Conradt has led the team to four consecutive national tournaments and seven 28-game winning seasons. Cheryl Hartman blocks an A M shot.

Texas Basketball 249 Conradt said. " It ' s just a problem of us being mentally prepared. I ' m not going to feel comfortable about the conference race until it ' s over. It ' s going to be a hassle the rest of the way, " she added. The Lady Longhorns waltzed through the remainder of the schedule with little opposi- tion. The closest score in the next 15 games came against Texas Tech in Lubbock. Texas not only had to hold off the Red Raiders but were also victims of a 2-day snowstorm that dropped 17 inches of snow in the Panhandle area. Neither the snow nor the Red Raiders could stop the ' Horns as Texas won 75-71. The Lady Longhorns finished the season with a 25-2 record, an 8-0 SWC record and as the top seed in the SWC Basketball Tourna- ment held March 11-13 in Austin. " I wouldn ' t have put money on it if so- meone would have asked me if we would be 25-2 at this point in the season, " Conradt said. " But I must have been the only one in town who thought we had a tough schedule. You bet I am pleased with our record. " Statistically, the Longhorns outscored op- ponents by 21.4 points per game, were a 51 percent shooting team, averaged 83.6 points per game, forced opponents to turn over the ball 28 times per game and had 202 more steals than opponents. " We don ' t have the size to dominate op- ponents on the boards, " Conradt said. " We will continue to rely upon our defense and quickness to make up for any lack of height in the middle, " she added. Texas entered the SWC tournament rank- ed third in the country. The ' Horns con- tinued to roll and defeated Arkansas in the finals to claim the conference championship and an automatic bid to th e NCAA tourna- ment. Three Texas players were named to the 1983 All Southwest Conference team. Texas center Annette Smith and point guard Terri Mackey made the first team while guard Esoleta Whaley was named to the se- cond team. Smith was also named the Women ' s Basketball Player of the Year by the SWC office. " She (Smith) has great athletic ability, great quickness, and the sweetest Til-do- anything-you-ask-me-to ' attitude that any coach could ask for, " Conradt said. " When you combine her type of talent with a great attitude well those two things can make an athlete unstoppable. " The NCAA pairings put No. 3 ranked Texas in the same bracket as No. 1 ranked Louisiana Tech. Both schools in addition to Louisville, Illinois State, Kansas State, Missouri, Auburn and Middle Tennessee composed the Midwest Regional.

The regionalization forced teams into re-playing conference opponents and put two of the top three teams in the na- tion in the same bracket. Texas defeated the Cardinals of Louisville 84-55 to advance to the Midwest Regional Semifinal in Ruston, Louisiana, against Kan- sas State. The Wildcats had hoped to avenge an earlier loss to the ' Horns but the Lady Longhorns defeated Kansas State. The win put Texas in the final against the Lady Techsters of Louisiana Tech. Ruston was the homecourt for the Techsters and they went on to beat the Longhorns 72-58. " The world is not always fair, " Conradt said, referring to the bracket setup which put two of the top three teams in the same bracket. " I learned that early in life. I just hope these 18-, 19- and 20-year-olds can learn that because I don ' t want to be the one that teaches that to them, " she added. The ' Horns finished the season at 30-3, and sat home while the NCAA Champion- ships were being played April 1 and 3. The national championship had eluded one of the most successful teams in the nation. " That ' s always in the back of everyone ' s mind, " said Conradt.

Texas Basketball 251 TEXAS AQUATICS Too Little, Too Late JL ed by backstrokers Rick Carey and diver Matt Scoggin, the 1982-83 Longhorn swimming and diving team finished the season with an impressive, but disappointing third place at the NCAA championships. Texas arrived in Indianapolis for the national meet as the pre-season favorite to win the NCAA title. At the meet, however, the Longhorns found themselves in a three-way battle with Florida and conference rival SMU. When the water had settled, Longhorn fans were disturbed to see their team third in line behind first place Florida, and second place SMU. Two overwhelming bright spots that came out of the meet were Rick Carey ' s two American records in the backstroke and Matt Scoggin ' s first place finish in thf one- meter diving event. Carey, who came into the NCAA meet after just having set a new American record in the 100-yard backstroke, in the SWC meet, saw his record fall in the preliminary heats of the NCAAs and then retaliated by breaking the new record as well as setting another American record in the 200 yard back-stroke in the finals. Scoggin also became a part of diving history when all three judges at the Texas Swim Center awarded him perfect 10s on a dive he performed during a triangular meet with Arkansas and Ohio State during the season. Scoggin ' s championship efforts at the 1982-83 NCAAs was indicative of many outstanding performances put on by eight- year diving coach Mike Brown ' s divers. Brown also earned honors as he was selected the nation ' s diving coach of the year. Scoggin ' s 96 point total on that dive was the highest ever recorded. Joining Scoggin with outstanding performances in 1982-83 were junior David Lindsey and freshman Mike Wantuck. During the season Lindsey and Wantuck consistently gave the ' Horns some much needed diving points. During the regular season, the Longhorns earned a 5-2 dual meet record. Texas had a slow start, losing to Auburn 55-58, but came back to defeat eventual champion Florida, 68-45. The Longhorns went on to win their other duals: Texas A M (64-45), Houston (64-57), Texas Tech (73-40). The only other dual was a highly com- petitive season-long contest with the SMU Mustangs. Over the 51 years since the SWC began competing in swimming, the Longhorns won 24 conference championships and SMU won 24. Once again it became apparent that the conference winner would be decided between these two teams. They met on four different occasions during the season. SMU showed its strength early by coming out on top of Texas in the SWC Invitational in Houston on Nov. 26-27 and then in the Dallas Morning News Invitational on Jan. 28-29. With this 0-2 deficit, the Longhorns prepared for one of the most intense rivalries in college swimming. Before a standing-room-only crowd in the Texas Swimming Center, the Longhorns showed their dominance in one- on-one competitions by defeating the Mustangs 69-42. The next time the two met it was to determine the 1983 Southwest Conference champion. For the third year in a row the Longhorns proved to be the best in the conference as they outscored second place SMU 648-549. by Debbie Havis FIRST ROW: Kris W. Kirchner, Edwin C. Reese, John M.

Texas Aquatics 253 New Coach Brings Quick Relief ... .T or the University of Texas women ' s swimming and diving team, the 1982-83 season was marked by an array of arrivals, departures and returns. As the school year began, the 1982 AIAW champions welcomed the arrival of top freshman recruits: Jodi Sterkel, Kirsten Wengler, Connie Wright, Claire Sanders and Cynthia Woodhead. The day after classes began, however, on Aug. 31, Coach Paul Bergen, who had coached the Longhorns to AIAW national championships the previous two years, announced he would leave Texas to take a coaching post in Toronto, Canada. Shortly after Bergen ' s announcement, the Longhorns ' top recruit, Woodhead, said she too would leave Texas. Woodhead, a world record holder in the 200-meter freestyle, said that Bergen ' s departure was part of her reason for leaving. " I thought it (college swimming) would be just like swimming for a club, and it really isn ' t. I want to concentrate totally on swimming for the next two years, and feel that I will be able to do that by returning to AAU club swimming, " she continued. On Oct. 3, Texas ' search for a new head man ended as the Longhorns announced that Richard Quick of Auburn University would be the new Longhorn coach. Quick, who grew up in Austin and began his own swimming career with the Austin Aquatics Club, was also named to the U.S. coaching staff for the 1984 Olympic Games. One person glad to see Quick take the post was former UT All-American, Joan Pennington, who returned to the team after Quick arrived. The arrival of Quick and return of Pennington brought new optimism to the team. As senior Jill Sterkel put it, " We ' re really excited to have Richard Quick with us. It has generated a new type of freshness on the team. And to have someone like Joan come back . . . well, it brings back a lot of memories. " After a smooth coaching transition, and the team personnel set for the semester, the Longhorns set out to prove that they could continue as a national power in the NCAA. The Longhorns had risen to the top in 1981 by defeating a full field of division I schools to take the national championship under the AIAW. In 1982, however, the Longhorns remained under the AIAW, while many of swimming ' s top teams changed to the NCAA. After that 1982 season the AIAW folded and the Longhorns too became part of the powerful NCAA. Texas ' first month of competition saw the Longhorns down conference foes Texas Tech 86-63 in Lubbock, and Southern Methodist University 64-49 in Austin. : V :.- :..- Coach Quick gives UT swimmers their lap count.

Texas won the meet. 254 Texas Aquatics At the Southwest Conference Invitational in College Station Dec. 3-5, the Longhorns proved their dominance over the rest of the I conference by capturing first place, outscor- | ing second-place Arkansas 1,153-982. In the spring, junior All-American distance freestyler, Kim Linehan returned to | Austin after spending a semester in Sarasota, Florida. Canadian breaststroker Lisa Bor- sholt also rejoined the team after a semester I away from Texas and the newcomer was diver Emily Sullivan, a transfer student from | Austin Community College. The Longhorns carried a 5-0 dual meet 1 record into Gainsville, Florida, on Jan. 22 to face the Florida Gators. Texas had just [ downed Miami University the day before by a score of 89-56 in Miami. Now they would have to defeat the No. 1 -ranked Gators in order to remain undefeated. Texas ' swim- mers captured four of nine individual events i and both relay events, but the divers, facing [some of their toughest competition of the year, managed to score a combined total from both the three- and one-meter events of only four points. Texas suffered its first loss of the season in this close meet, 55-58. After downing Houston 90-59 in Houston, the Longhorns came home and set out to upset the No. 2 ranked Stanford Car- dinals before their largest Austin crowd of the year. Any shortcomings Coach Mike Brown ' s divers may have committed in the dual against Florida, they more than made up for in their 14-point effort against Stan- ford. With the help of the divers, the Longhorns were tied with the Cardinals go- ing into the final event, the 400-yard freestyle relay. Texas captured the event and the meet by five-tenths of a second, breaking a school record in the process. Just a few weeks before the SWC meet, the Longhorns were blessed with yet another All-American returnee. Carol Borgmann returned to the team in time to try to qualify for NCAAs at the SWC meet. Texas had no problem capturing the SWC title beating second place Houston 799-444. In the conference meet, the Longhorns won four of the five relay events, 13 of 19 in- dividual events, and set 18 conference records. More importantly, they managed to qualify three more swimmers for NCAAs in- cluding Borgmann, making 13 total who would be going to Lincoln, Nebraska, for the national championship. Prior to leaving for the big meet, Quick expressed his optimism, that the Longhorns did have a chance at capturing the title. Texas fell in the first event, the 400-yard medley relay when they missed making the finals and placed seventh. The Longhorn divers did not place in the meet. Those fac- tors along with the strong depth displayed by first place Stanford and second place Florida gave Texas a strong but disappoin- ting third place finish. Nevertheless, the 1983 ' Horns proved to those who questioned their ability to com- pete against NCAA powers, that despite all the changes, Texas is strong enough to com- pete against anyone. by Debbie Havis FIRST ROW: Wendy Lynn Wells, Connie Marie Wright.

" -James Blackwood, assistant cross country coach The University of Texas men ' s cross coun- try team started its season at the University of Texas-San Antonio Invitational meet Sept. 17. The Longhorn men tied UTSA for the team crown with 33 points each. The first place tie gave the harriers a sprinting start in- to the season. Senior Sam Sitonik was the team ' s top runner and finished in second place overall. Sitonik ran the four-mile race in 19:41 and finished the race one yard behind the in- dividual champion Roger Soler of UTSA who ran the course in 19:40. Four other ' Horns finished in the top 10: freshman Carlos Quinones placed sixth, freshman Andy Trickett placed seventh, junior John Helmick placed eighth and sophomore Roland Resales placed 10th. UT suffered a setback the next week when they were supposed to compete in the Baylor Invitational meet at Waco. Due to disciplinary reasons, the ' Horns missed the meet, which was traditionally one of the toughest of the season. After their disciplinary vacation, UT trav- eled to Little Rock, where they finished second to Arkansas in the Arkansas In- vitational. Sitonik breezed through the flat track to wind up in first place in the individ- ual standings. UT harriers Quinones, Hel- mick and Resales each placed in the top 10. Next, UT hosted the Texas Invitational on Oct. 21 at Southwestern University ' s Kurth- Landrum Golf Course in Georgetown. The ' Horns ran away with the title in the 10,000 meter race with 36 points. Sitonik placed se- cond in the individual standings, Helmick placed third and Quinones came in with sixth place honors. Texas then prepared for the SWC cham- pionship meet in Georgetown. Arkansas ' Tony Leonard and Texas ' Sitonik were ex- pected to finish first and second respectively. This time however, Sitonik pushed a little harder than Leonard and captured the SWC individual title. " Sam just blew them away, " said James Blackwood, assistant cross coun- try coach. Arkansas, however, still managed to capture their ninth straight SWC title with the ' Horns coming in at second place, as predicted by area sportswriters. The ' Horns ' next challenge was the NCAA District VI meet where Helmick and Sitonik managed to qualify for the national meet in Bloomington, Indiana. Only Sitonik was able to place in the na- tional meet, coming in with a 35th place and a time of 31:05. The 35th place finish was also good enough to earn Sitonik All American honors. by Sharlyn Kidd 256 Texas Track ' , i Sitonilc ' s smile says it all as he wins the Southwest Conference Cross Country title in Georgetown against a tough team from Arkansas. Texas Track 257 Women ' s Final Ranking Hurt Due to Injuries and Bad Luck With six veterans returning from a 12th place finish in the 1981 women ' s cross coun- try nationals, it seemed that head coach Phil Delavan had little reason to worry about the 1982 team. However, plagued by various in- juries throughout the season, the UT women competed to finish only second in the District VI meet despite the talented runners that comprised the team. Two Longhorns, Lori Nelson and Tracey Wong, qualified to compete individually in the NCAA Division I championship. Tracey Wong, the lone senior on the team, was joined by five other returning run- ners: Tara Arnold, who led the ' Horns at the 1981 national meet; Terry Ebanks; Bridget Jensen; Dede Lawless; and Lori Nelson, who returned stronger than ever after severing her Achilles tendon during pre-season training. Freshman Tara O ' Neill brought impressive credentials to the team after winning two district championships in high school. O ' Neill, together with Lori Norwood, Mag- gie Salinas and Mary Jaqua Montoya, these 10 women comprised the 1982 Longhorn cross country team. The first test for the team was the Texas A M Invitational on Sept. 16. The Lady Longhorns came away with first place, edg- ing out the second-place Aggies by 10 points. Nelson finished first for Texas and second overall with a time of 18:30 in the three-mile course. Next on the schedule was the quadrangular meet in Raleigh, N.C., with fourth-ranked North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Penn State. For the second consecutive week, Nelson finished as the ' Horns ' top runner. Nelson came across in 18:01, good for eighth place. Arnold placed 10th for UT in 18:15 and Jensen edged Wong for 13th place. Ebanks, the team ' s most valuable player, continued to be hampered by a leg injury. As a preview for the Indiana University Invitational, Delavan took his harriers to the San Antonio Invitational. There, the ' Horns easily swept past other teams and placed in the first five positions. In the IU Invitational on Oct. 9, UT finished in ninth place and Nelson once again led the ' Horns with a 29th-place finish of her own. Ebanks was able to run in the meet although she was still bothered by her injury. " I was very pleased, " Delavan said. " In that kind of competition and still not 100 percent, we performed well. " At the North Texas State competition, Texas rode a strong performance by Wong to the team ' s third invitational victory of the season. Wong finished first with a personal best 17:45 and her five teammates finished within 40 seconds of that time. Following five consecutive meets on the road, the ' Horns returned home to host the sixth annual Texas Invitational on Oct. 21. Ranked 19th, UT finished in second place behind Abilene Christian. Nelson missed the meet because of illness. Because of injuries to Ebanks and Nor- wood, the ' Horns prepared for the SWC meet on Nov. 1 not knowing whether they would have the mandatory five runners to participate. By the day of the meet, all run- ners were well, but Arnold had to drop out due to cramps, thus disqualifying Texas. Still, Nelson easily won the women ' s SWC championship with a time of 17:45.5. Again hampered by injuries from Ebanks and not sure who would be able to run, UT prepared for the District VI meet in Georgetown on Nov. 13. " We ' ve had a good season and to see it end because of injuries is a real shame, " Delavan said before the meet. Yet the ' Horns pulled together and finished second in the meet, only seven points behind first-place Arkansas. Nelson again won the 5,000-meter race, posing a time of 17:20. Wong finished third with a 17:31. Although Texas failed to qualify for the national meet in Indiana, Nelson and Wong attended as individual runners. Nelson finished 62nd and Wong 70th. Even though the ' Horns did not fare as well as had initially been predicted, they stuck together with hopes that they would live up to their potential the following season. by Melanie Wilson FIRST ROW: Theresa Lynn Ebanks, Bridget Lois Jensen, Tara Lane Arnold, Lori Nelson, Lori L.

" You always need a little luck along the way, but we ' ve got good people and we could have a good year. But so much can happen, it ' s too early to tell at this point, " he added. The University of Texas thinclads retired several lettermen making the Longhorns a preseason favorite to garner with his eighth SWC title. " We ' ve beefed up a little in the 5,000 and 10,000, " said Price. " We ' ve got to get more points there, " Price said. In 1982, Texas placed third in the SWC meet going on to a 19th place finish in the NCAAs. Three returning ' Horns, shotputter Oskar Jakobsson, javelin thrower Elinor Vilhjalmsson and distance runner Sam Sitonik, earned All-American honors in 1982. Texas entered the 1983 indoor season hoping to improve its 31st place finish in 1982. The ' Horns ran in the Arkansas Invita- tional, LSU Invitational, and the Zia Classic in Albuquerque, placing fourth at Arkansas and second at LSU and at Zia. The ' Horns approached the SWC Indoorr championships hoping to qualify several people for nationals. UT came away with a fourth-place finish and three qualifiers for the NCAA Indoor Championships March 11-12 at Pontiac, Michigan. Carlos Quiones won the 1,000-yard run with a school record of 2:09.17. The two-mile relay was the only other SWC event champion for Texas. On March 20, the ' Horns traveled to UCLA for a triangular meet against UCLA and Tennessee. All three teams had placed in the top 10 at the 1982 NCAA outdoor cham- pionships. Texas won eight of the 18 events for a second place finish. At the LSU invitational, the ' Horns raced to a first place finish with a total of 100 points. Texas outscored second place Arizona by 42 and turned in their strongest performance of the year. Sitonik won both the steeplechase and the 5,000 meters while Vilhjalmssons ' 276-03 4 javelin throw was the second best throw in SWC history. His throw of 279-3 earlier in the season was a Southwest Conference record. The following week, Texas was named the Outstanding Team at the Baylor Invita- tional recording five wins, four second place finishes and three thirds. The ' Horns had qualified people in seven individual events and two relay teams for the NCAA Cham- pionships May 31-June 4 in Houston. " We have been running well all year and have some of the best times in the nation, " said Price. " We just hope it carries into the conference meet. " The ' Horns came out of the SWC meet May 13-14 with a second place finish. At the NCAA ' s, UT placed 9th for their third top ten finish in the last four years. Elinar Vilh- jalmsson highlighted the meet by setting an NCAA record in the javelin with a throw of 295-2. by Reuben Galceran FIRST ROW: Leo Sayaverda, Gary Roberson, Greg Watson, Karl Smith, Oskar Jakobsson, Sam Sitonik, George Collins.

The ' Horns dominated the LSU meet by winning four events: 60-yard hurdles, 600- yard run, two-mile run and the long jump. UT outdistanced second-place Florida State, scoring 51 points to the Gators ' 41. " We really had a good meet at LSU, even though we had first-meet jitters, " said Texas assistant coach Teri Anderson Jordan, ad- ding, " You don ' t run as well as you ' re capable of in that first meet. We wish we had one more meet before Southwest Conference. " The first official Southwest Conference indoor meet saw Texas leave Fort Worth with a second-place finish behind the University of Houston. Freshman Terry Turner won the 600-yard run while sophomore Tara Arnold won the 1,000-yard run. The UT two-mile relay also claimed the SWC event title. " I had us a pretty poor third on paper before the meet, " said head coach Phil Delavan. " The girls went out and did a great job. We surprised a few people, " he added. Juliet Cuthbert and Terry Turner both qualified for the NCAA Indoor Champion- ships in Pontiac, Michigan, on March 11-12. Cuthbert qualified in the 60-yard run while Turner qualified in the 600-yard run. The Longhorns opened their outdoor season Feb. 26 at Memorial Stadium by win- ning 10 of 16 events. The meet featured teams from Baylor University, Texas Chris- tian University, North Texas State University and Abilene Christian University. " We have good depth in the throws and in the sprints and middle distances, and our athletes were ready to compete outdoors, " said Delavan, adding that, " Our strengths are evident outdoors, rather than in. " The following week, the ' Horns traveled to Laredo, Texas, to participate in the Border Olympics Invitational. Texas won the meet with 178 points, which was 117 points ahead of runner-up Abilene Christian. The ' Horns won eight events. During the next three weeks, UT went up against powerhouses Nebraska, Tennessee, Florida State and Arizona. Focusing on quali- fying people for the NCAA championships, UT qualified people in eight individual events and five teams in relay events. " We had a whale of a meet against Ten- nessee and Nebraska, " Delavan said. " We qualified our best people for nationals and a few misses. " The llth-ranked Longhorn tracksters traveled to College Station for the SWC Out- door Championships held May 13-14. UT finished second behind the Cougars of Houston. The ' Horns qualified a few more members to the National Championships in Houston May 30-June 4. The Longhorns broke five school records during the year. Austin product Susan Shurr broke her own record in the 20-meter run with a time of 23.4 seconds. Arnold ran a j 4:19.25 in the 1,500-meter run which broke I her own record of 4:21.88.

One of the premier track events in the nation, the Relays saw more than 2,000 athletes representing some 200 schools participate. The 55 events included competition at several levels including high school, col- legiate, and open division. In 1983, the Texas Relays awarded its first women ' s heptathlon championship. The hep- tathlon and decathlon opened the Relays. The two-day heptathlon consisted of several running and field events, four the first day and three the second. As in the decath- lon, point tables were used to award points according to the competitor ' s individual performance. National collegiate record holders Kieth Commor of SMU and Mitt Ottey of UT-E1 Paso added an air of excellence to the Relays. Conner was ranked No. 1 by Track and Yield Magazine after he recorded five of the 10 best leaps in the triple jump in 1982. His winning jump of 57-7 ' 34 " at the 1982 NCAA championships set the collegiate record and put him second on the all-time world list. Ottey, also ranked No. 1, lost only once in 20 competitions in 1982. His high jump of 7-7 ' 4 tied the collegiate record and t l -:-.. : . , . - .:.

Texas Relays 265 TEXAS TENNIS ' Horns Received NCAA Bid Coach Dave Snyder hoped to improve on the 1982 season ' s No. 13 ranking, and he started 1983 with a step in the right direc- tion. At the San Marcos Chilympiad, Texas won the singles, and the doubles title. The Longhorns then took the singles and doubles titles of the Texas Invitational. Texas defeated Oklahoma State Universi- ty and Oklahoma University to trounce all Okies, and then proceeded to smother con- ference rival SMU. Snyder then sent his players to three different tournaments. UT captured the singles title at the LSU Invita- tional, lost in the finals of the Texas Sec- tionals Tournament, and won the consola- tion bracket at another tournament. Splitting the team up again the following weekend proved fruitful as Texas gathered Craig Kardon stretches to hit his serve during his match against SWT. victories in Los Angeles and at Texas A M. The final tourney of the fall season saw Texas tied with Trinity for the team title at the Westwood tournament. The start of the spring season found the ' Horns still at No. 13, but they climbed all the way to No. 6 before ending the season at No. 12 with a 16-11 record. After sweeping two dual matches against UTSA and Southwest Texas, Texas traveled to California for the ITCA Tennis Team Championships where the unseeded ' Horns faced third-ranked, third-seeded USC in the first round. Texas pulled an upset victory and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they pulled another surprise victory against sixth-seeded California. In the semifinals, Texas lost to Pepperdine. The following week, the Longhorns played in the Minnesota Showcase Classic as defending champions. They lost their crown to Harvard by a slim margin. Texas picked up a victory from Pan American University, but dropped the dual match against Trinity. The ' Horns managed to bounce back to trounce Baylor. Texas jumped six places on the ITCA poll en route to the Corpus Christi Invitational, where they began the tournament by win- ning all six single matches, but fell back to take sixth place. Texas shut out NTSU in a dual match before they went on the road during spring break. Texas lost to Southern Illinois- Edwardsville, and then faced Clemson and Miami again, and lost to both again. Texas Johnny Levine concentrates on returning a backhand in his win over South Alabama. ended their trip in South Carolina by defeating Furner University. The ' Horns came home from spring break to face another loss to Miami, but then swept a dual against Southern Alabama. SMU was just one of the three tough SWC matches Texas had in one week. SMU, the second ranked team in the nation, dominated Texas in the singles. Texas kept the match close by winning two of the three doubles. Texas then hosted TCU for a tough dual match. TCU led Texas 3-2 after five singles matches, and picked up another one as TCU won the dual. The third match of the week was against No. 11 Arkansas. The ' Horns could do no better than another loss, but their slump ended as Texas slaughtered Texas Tech, and pulled out close ones against Texas A M and Houston. The season ended with a shutout of Rice and a win over Lamar. To get a NCAA bid, Texas had to stay ahead of TCU, with whom they were almost tied. Texas came close but could only manage one single division title and sixth place overall in the SWC tournament.

Texas Tennis 267 Women ' s Tennis Team Captures SWC Crown When the University of Texas women ' s tennis team won the Southwest Conference tournament, they also won the right to be the first SWC women ' s tennis team to get a bid to the NCAA championships. Texas began their quest for the NCAA bid by winning the Westwood Inter- collegiate Tournament doubles. Texas then went on to beat OU in a dual match. The ' Horns closed out the fall season on the road. Playing in Coral, Florida, Texas won two of three matches; they defeated South Florida and Mississippi before losing to Florida. The Rice Invitational introduced the ' Horns to their SWC competition. The sur- prise of the tournament was Mary Jo Giam- malva who won her flight (section) of the tourney. Gen Greiwe and Jane Johanson both made it to the semifinals. With an llth place ranking on the UTSA preseason poll, Texas traveled to the BYU Invitational. After a first round victory over BYU, Texas came up short against San Diego State and Northwestern, capturing fourth place. After Texas defeated Texas Tech 9-0, in their first SWC dual match, the Longhorns traveled to the Arizona Invitational. Texas had its best tournament of the year, captur- ing third place out of a field of twenty. Texas then came up against second- ranked Trinity in a dual match, but didn ' t fare too well, as Trinity won all six singles matches en route to an 8-1 victory. Texas re- bounded with a 9-0 stomping of Baylor. During spring break, Texas traveled to California for four dual matches. The Longhorns won two of the four matches played. After losing to first-ranked USC 9-0 (with six of nine matches going to three sets), and to Pepperdine 7-2, the Longhorns came back to beat the University of Califor- nia at Santa Barbara 5-4, and defeated number five San Diego for the first time in three outings against them. The No. 14 ranked ' Horns, with a 9-6 record, came back from spring break and won 10 of their remaining 12 matches. When Texas routed South Alabama 8-1, Moore got a look at a few of his other players, Louella Seymour, Daren Wilson, and Martha Garza. The ' Horns won their second SWC dual match by slipping past Rice 6-3, and then went on to crush Illinois and TCU by scores of 9-0 in both matches. Kirsten McKeen, Mary Jo Giammalva and Stewart all won their matches in straight sets for the singles. Texas ' next match was against number three Trinity. The ' Horns entered the match with upset on their mind, but could not pull it off. Trinity was just too tough, winning the first four singles matches en route to tak- ing the match 6-3. However, UT ' s doubles teams of Harrison and Greiwe, and Ellis and Stewart, both took their doubles matches. Texas hosted the Longhorn Invitational with second-ranked UCLA and third-ranked Trinity among the contenders. Texas ' first match was against the Hoosiers, ranked No. 11. The ' Horns took that first round 5-4, but then lost to UCLA in the semifinals 9-0. Texas ended the conference season with victories over Arkansas, Houston, SMU and Texas A M; they entered the SWC tourney seeded number one. Texas took a 14-point lead into the final SWC tournament for women and wrapped up the championship after the first day. " Gen Greiwe and Vicki Ellis probably con- tributed most to their try for NCAA bids, " said Moore. Greiwe, Johanson, Stewart and Giammalva contributed to the champion- ship effort by making their flights. Texas finished the tournament with a 24- point victory over Rice, who took second place honors. Texas ' victories in five of the nine individual titles assured the ' Horns of a bid to the NCAA team championships. Gen Greiwe hits a backhand in her win at Westwood.

Coach Jimmy Clayton, senior Mark Brooks and juniors Brandel Chamblee and Paul Thomas led the ' Horns to a 6-2 record and a SWC Championship. The ' Horns took first place at the Columbia Lakes Intercollegiate on Feb. 6-7, the Pan-American Invitational on Feb. 10-12, the Homberg Invitational on Feb. 25-27 and the Border Olympics on March 5 and 6, giving them a 4-0 record. The winning streak ended when UT took fifth place at the Rafael Alarcon Invitational on March 10-12 trailing 11 strokes behind the leader, Oklahoma State. The ' Horns bounced back to win the Morris Williams Intercollegiate held in Austin on March 25-27 and hosted by the Longhorns. Finishing in third place, 18 strokes behind Oklahoma State and 14 behind Houston, the ' Horns received their second defeat at the All-American Inter- collegiate played in Houston on April 6-7. UT entered the SWC Tournament with a 5-2 record and came out on top finishing nine strokes ahead of second-place Houston. Texas had not won that many tournaments in one season since the days of Ben Cren- shaw and Tom Kite in 1972 and 1973. In addition to good team showings, Texas also boasted outstanding individual perfor- mances. Senior Mark Brooks finished first in the Homberg Invitational and the All- American Intercollegiate; he placed third at the Columbia Lakes Intercollegiate and tied for fourth at the Border Olympics. He fin- ished 10 over par in the SWC Championship and took fifth place. Junior Brandel Chamblee became SWC champion with a three over par finish. He also took first at the Rafael Alarcon Invitational and the Pan- American Invitational. He finished second at the Columbia Lakes Intercollegiate and tied for seventh at the Morris Williams Inter- collegiate. Junior Paul Thomas and sophomore Steen Tinning also made good showings in 1982-83. Thomas tied for se- cond at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate and tied for third at the SWC Championship. Tinning tied for fourth at the Columbia Lakes Intercollegiate and tied for sixth at the Pan-American Invitational. After the SWC tournament, the ' Horns went to the Sun Devil Intercollegiate in Scottsdale, Arizona, on April 29-30 where they took third place to complete their 5-3 tournament record before the NCAA ' s.

Texas Golf 271 Women Gain Fourth in SWC Tourney After a second place finish in Nationals last year, UT ' s women ' s golf coach Pat Weiss expected nothing but good things to come in 1983. After the first golf tourna- ment, in the 1982-83 season, Weiss was already looking forward to the 1983 Na- tional as the ' Horns raced to a second place finish at the Susie Maxwell Bering Classic in Oklahoma City in September. Sophomore standout Sherri Steinhauer and Senior Jackie Daiss were Texas ' top finishers coming in at fourth and eleventh respectively. In October, the ' Horns traveled to Mem- phis for the Memphis State Invitational. Before the tournament, Weiss gave her team some encouragement by reassuring them that there wasn ' t a team in the 16-team field that they couldn ' t beat as long as the veterans played with some consistency. As it turned out, consistency, or the lack of it, hurt the ' Horns as they finished a disap- pointing seventh. " I hate to lose tournaments shooting poorly if you shoot well and lose, there is nothing you can do about it, " said Weiss. Steinhauer was UT ' s top finisher at Mem- phis coming in seven strokes off the med- alist pace, which was good for 15th place. With hopes of improving, the ' Horns traveled to Tulsa for the Nancy Lopez In- vitational. " The Lopez Invitational always has been a difficult tourney for us, " said Weiss. " We usually run into bad weather up there and the course is especially difficult. " The course proved to be a bit ornery for the ' Horns as they struggled for a seventh place finish. Nancy Ledbetter was the ' Horns top finisher with a three day total score of 237 for 72 holes. Texas completed the fall season with a sixth place finish in the Universitario Femenil de Golf in Monterrey, Mexico. Weiss looked forward to the spring, still in search of some kind of consistency from her golfers. " Our seven scholarship players should not score in the 80 ' s, but that is what ' s been happening. We just can ' t be competitive if that continues, " said Weiss. Next, the Longhorns tried their luck at the Lady Gator Invitational at Florida State University. Even though the tourney was shortened by rain, the ' Horns were able to finish in second place. Steinhauer broke out of a slump to finish first with a score of 145 in 36 holes. With her women playing the best golf of the season, the linksters descended on San Jose State for the Lady Spartan Invitational in Feb. It was apparent that all the bugs hadn ' t been worked out of the lineup as the ' Horns first day total swelled to an embar- rassing 320. Although the ' Horns second day total of 308 vaulted them to a fifth place finish, Weiss wasn ' t very happy about her team ' s performance, " We just can ' t keep messing around the first day of a tourna- ment, " said Weiss. " An occasional bad day for our caliber of player should be in the 81- 82 range. That has been the first day norm for us. That is just totally unacceptable. " In their next three outings, the ' Horns re- mained unsettled. Finishing second in the Betsy Rawls Invitational in Austin. Next the women fell to a seventh place finish at the Lady Sun Devil Invitational in Phoenix and at SMU ' s Lady Mustang Round-Up. The ' Horns ended the year with a fourth place finish at the SWC tournament. Daiss was the top finisher for the ' Horns with a tenth place finish. s nw p r Jackie Daiss checks to see if she has the right angle to sink her putt on the 17th hole of the Betsy Rawls Invitational Golf meet hosted by The University in March. : fcr,:-. 272 Texas Golf Steinhauer follows through on a long drive.

Texas Golf 273 Ga playw . We will with this group and we won ' t stop working toward our original goal the national tournament, " said Mike Haley, UT women ' s volleyball coach, following earlier season in. juries. Despite injuries to senior players, the University of Texas women ' s volleyball teaiA won the 1982 Southwest Conference Volleyball Championship and reached the. NCAA Regional Championships. Finishing with a 31-15 season record, tie team had to replace injured seniors Nell Former and Katrina Dornseifer early in the, season. BOniplayerswd helped the team t ; an AIAW National |pmpiotship in but Fortner had to K t PPF BWPBW " - " " V the first game of ' 82 when she broke her elbow during practice. Dornseifer, who was team captain, was lost for the season follow- ing an injury sustained during the Houston match in October. " Last year, we proved we could play with any team. At Texas, it ' s a matter of team ef- fort. We do not have the ' big guns ' some other schools have, but the guns we do have- fit awfully well in our sy stem, " said Haley. The system was plagued by injuries in 1982, but the team pulled together and s new members were worked into the starting six. Freshmen Laura Neugebauer and Ava Mercer overcame their inexperience and with senior Beth Coblentz, gave the team the stability needed in -{in- ference play. " Our freshmen have ' -j-ecn working hard and saw some playing time. Haley said. " They have to come out respon- sible, though, as Fran (Teeter) and Jo B -:h (Palmer) did two years ago as rookies. Vi- ' e put them in the lineup and they played qtn;r well, " he added. M Texas won their first seven matches of the season. They entered conference play.i however, with a 13-10 record and lost 10 of the last 16 matches they played. During this period, the Longhorns played in two Califor- nia tournaments that featured the top teams in the country. Haley knew he had to find combination that would get the ' Horns to " jell as an unit " in a conference that was im- proving each year. " We have a much improved conference and the round-robin, home-and-away schedule is bound to result in a few upsets, " Haley said. " The caliber of play in the South is quite high and our conference will be one to reckon with rather quickly in the NCAA format. " Haley said. The ' Horns won 14 of their next 18 mat- ches, proving that they had found a suc- cessful combination with hitters Mercer, Coblentz and middle hitter blocker Laura Neugebauer. This trio and the rest of the starting lineup used aggressive net play and fundamental passing to gain the requisite momentum for conference play. Three of those four lost matches were to nationally ranked teams. That 18-match series brought the ' Horns an 8-1 SWC record. On Nov. 20, the Horns beat A M 15-12, 15-10, 8-15, 15-11, to take the first official SWC championship in volleyball and a berth in the 28-team NCAA Tournament. Avenging an earlier season 13-15, 15-17, 15-9, 6-15 loss in College Station, the Longhorns defeated the Aggies in front of 3,000 people, the largest home crowd ever to ttend a Texas women ' s volleyball match. Both teams entered the match with iden- tical SWC records, thus setting up a winner- nke-all situation. Texas repeatedly fought vrr.ou A M attacks. The Longhorns worked the : ' :ojs net to their advantage, leaving A M ' s . , --Hxr defense in disarray. In the fourth and final game, Texas racked up four points after the i- . :;j. : score was tied at 11-11 to give the ' Horns the ,- :.! championship. " They (the team) fought off just about ' erything you can fight off this season, " ley said. " They deserved this win. " Entering the NCAA tournament on Dec. , as the 13th seed, Texas hosted Southwest issouri State University in the first round, he Longhorns defeated SW Missouri 15-10, 15, 15-7, 15-13. The win put Texas into the igional tournament against fourth seeded Stanford. That team proved too much for exas and with the match ended the season or the young Longhorn team. Stanford used [uick offensive plays and its past playoff ex- tience to offset the Longhorns ' ambitious lay. The Stanford Cardinals defeated Texas four matches with effective hitting and uperior net blocking. " I really liked this team. They really lieved in themselves. They were always lapping hands and having a good time, " aley said of the Longhorns. Playing in a football-oriented state, Haley idded one more winning volleyball season md consequently drew a following of fans establish Longhorn volleyball as UT ' s ther fall sport.

Volleyball 275 TEXAS BASEBALI i L Travis Spradlmp i Texas senior Bryan Burrows dives for a TCU line drive over third base, where he found a home after working first at second base and shortstop! ' Horns Ride Rollercoaster Season ] To Capture Fourth National Title n 1983, Texas head baseball coach Cliff Gustafson found himself in a familiar position replacing almost all of a team that had been decimated either by graduation or the major league draft. Of the team that finished third at the 1982 College World Series, the only returning starters in the field were catcher Jeff Hearron and centerfielder Mike Brumley. Gustafson went to the junior college ranks to sign six new Longhorns. " Our criteria for selecting a junior college recruit is whether he can come in and contribute immediately, " Gustafson said before the season. Luckily, all four top pitchers (Roger Clemens, Calvin Schiraldi, Mike Capel and Kirk Killingsworth) returned, to give the ' Horns a solid base in pitching. Because of the mound experience and the quality of the newcomers, UT was once again favored to run away with the Southwest Conference title, and was ranked No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball before the season began. After crushing Midwestern State twice on opening day, Feb. 18, behind the 6-for-9 hitting of left fielder David Denny, the ' Horns dropped two of four games with UT-Arlington. In that series, Clemens and Capel both suffered losses in their first outings of the season. In the two games UT took from the Mavs, Steve Labay took matters into his own hands, hitting an eighth-inning grand slam to win one 7-6, and pitching a 6-0 shutout to win the other. On Feb. 23, Texas Lutheran, which had a career record of 0-46 against UT, received a 13-2 pounding. The rout featured another grand slam, this one from first baseman JoseTolentino in the second inning. Somehow, the Bulldogs managed to break their jinx in the nightcap, hitting a ninth- inning home run off Clemens, who had pitched eight scoreless innings, to win 3-2. Hearron ' s bat came alive to help UT come from behind twice to sweep three games from Louisiana Tech. His two-run double in the first game helped Schiraldi to his first win of the season, 6-4, and his two run triple sent the final game into extra innings, which Texas won in the llth, 7-6. Top-10 Oral Roberts hit three home runs but still lost twice to Texas, commencing UT ' s muggings of nationally-ranked teams Clemens struck out 10 ORU batters to pick iH v-. up his first win of the season, 4-1. In the first game against perennial powei Cal State-Fullerton, Texas fell behind when the Titans took a 4-0 lead off Capel in th( first inning. The ' Horns battled back ane eventually won 8-7 in 10 innings. UT wenl on to sweep Cal State in the two remaining games, 3-1 and 10-3. Ex-Longhorn pitcher Bobby Hinsor returned to Disch-Falk Field and led his neW teammates, the Lubbock Christian Chaparrals, to a 4-2 win. KillingswortH surrendered a two-run homer in the eightrj for the first loss of his UT career. The ' Horns woke up in the second gama however, blanking LCC, 8-0. Texas began its " Spring Break " (21 game:| scheduled over an 11-day period) by twict lUU ' - [ 276 Texas Baseball in i Longhorn junior shortstop and preseason Ail-American Mike Brumley throws to first against Arizona State. blanking Dallas Baptist en route to an easy four-game sweep. The ' Horns got solid pit- ching performances from Schiraldi and Clemens, who in the two shutouts, gave up only 6 hits between them. Killingsworth and Wade Phillips also had good efforts in the remaining two games. UT hadn ' t lost to St. Mary ' s since 1978, but good pitching squelched the ' Horns 5-1 in the first game of a doubleheader. Texas bounced back in the second game to stomp the Rattlers 12-2 behind the hitting of Tolen- tino, and the home runs of Killingsworth and Alan Brown. The next victim on the ' Horns ' hit list was Emporia State University of Kansas. Clemens and Schiraldi combined for a 4-0 win in the first game, and the UT bats ex- ploded in the second, roping ESU pitching for 14 runs on 14 hits. In the next day ' s doubleheader, freshman Eric Boudreaux pit- ched Texas to a 9-4 win over the Hornets Longhorn .basketballer David Seitz got his first starting pitching assignment in the nightcap, with the ' Horns coming from a 4- run deficit in the seventh inning to win 9-5. Second baseman Deron Gustafson got the big blast on an eighth-inning triple. Old nemesis Arizona State came to Austin March 18 for one of the most highly an- ticipated series in Texas baseball history. The Sun Devils brought their long baseball tradi- tion to Disch-Falk, but not much else, as the Longhorns walked to an 11-2 win. Texas got all the runs it needed in the first inning when ASU pitchers walked six straight UT batters, for a 3-0 lead. The Devils did all their scor- ing for the series, two runs, in the second in- ning, which was countered by a Hearron home run in the third. Leading 5-2 in the eighth, Texas came up with six more runs thanks to five more walks, three intentional, by ASU pitching, plus two hits by the ' Horns. The score was ironic in that ASU had beaten Texas in the 1981 College World Series by that same 11-2 count. The following night, Clemens extended his string of scoreless innings to 27, becom- ing the first pitcher in 55 games to shut out the Sun Devils. Mike Trent doubled twice to help the ' Horns to a 6-0 win. " We get up for the tougher teams and have a tendency to slack up against the easier teams, " said second baseman Bill Bates after the game. That statement would never be more true than two days later. After taking two games from Texas Wesleyan, including a 7-0, one- hitter for Capel, the ' Horns fell apart the next day against the same TWC team. UT lost to the Rams, not once, but twice. The 3-0 score of the first game marked the first shutout in 130 games, and the 6-5 tally in the next contest completed Texas ' first home doubleheader loss in four years. " I ' d have to think long and hard to think of a worse performance, " said Gustafson after the dismal showing. The lone bright spot of the day was the emergence of freshman designated hitter Doug Hodo, who had a 4-for-4 game in the nightcap. In 1982, Texas ' 34th game of the season was its first loss. This year, after playing 34 games, UT had now lost seven. The 1983 team was not weaker, as evidenced by solid wins over three highly-ranked opponents. But all seven losses had come to weaker, unranked teams and most of the games could just as easily have been won. It was time for a mercy killing. Texas took the field with a vengence on March 22, by destroying Southeastern Oklahoma in a twin blowout, 14-2 and 15-3. On a very cold, wet and windy night, the ' Horns rocked the Savages for 25 total hits, including five more for Hodo, and a 5-for-5 performance by Denny in the second game. Labay withstood the weather to go the distance in the early game. Texas began Southwest Conference play the weekend of March 25 in cold, wet Little Rock by sweeping Arkansas three games in a rain-delayed series, 9-4, 6-1 and 11-9. Clemens dominated the Friday game, strik- ing out 11 Hog batters to raise his season record to 6-2. Schiraldi took over in Sunday ' s first game, improving his record to 5-0 with a 3-hit, 7- strikeout showing. Designated hitter Kill- ingsworth led the Longhorn hitting attack by crashing a 370-foot home run to left. Relief pitcher Killingsworth picked up the win in the second game, in spite of giv- ing up four runs. Hodo hit two doubles to drive in three runs, and Hearron gave the ' Horns their final margin with a 450-foot homer that would have landed in the middle of a nearby highway had there not been a 50-foot retaining screen. April Fools ' weekend saw the ' Horns take 2 of 3 from TCU in a series that saw three different personalities of baseball. Texas Baseball 277 Although the Lubbock Christian runner is safe, first baseman Jose Tolentino displays his excellent stretch. Texas struggled by the Frogs, 6-5, in the Friday-night sleeper with Clemens picking up his sixth win of the season. Saturday ' s doubleheader was a display of schizophrenia. TCU ' s Jeff Shafer won the first game, 1-0, ruining Schiraldi ' s no-hitter and perfect season record with a last-inning home run. Texas fell behind 9-0 in the se- cond game as TCU batters pounded both Capel and Labay. Phillips came on in relief to shut the Frogs down for 3 and two-thirds innings until the ' Horn bats finally woke up. The ' Horns scored one run in the third in- ning and 7 in the fourth four of those coming on a Brumley grand slam. Kill- ingsworth came in to pitch in the seventh, Tolentino tied the score with a solo homer down the right field line, and pinch-hitter Brown hit a short sacrifice fly to score the winning run. With the series win, Texas raised its SWC record to 5-1 and moved into first. After taking a Tuesday night off to dispatch Hardin Simmons, 7-1 and 10-2, the ' Horns traveled to Waco where they swept three games from Baylor by a combined score of 24-4. Clemens threw a 5-hitter in the Friday game while Longhorn batters pound- ed out 13 hits to win, 9-2. On Saturday, Schiraldi came back from his TCU loss to pitch a 4-hit, 7-strikeout shutout in the first game. The performance lowered his SWC earned-run average to a league-leading 0.43. Offensively, Texas scrat- ched out nine more hits, scoring five runs in the fourth inning and three more in the seventh to complete an 8-0 pasting. Capel and Killingsworth combined in the second game to pitch an easy 7-2 win. The game had been scoreless and practically eventless until the ' Horn half of the fifth inn- ing, with Denny stepping up to the plate. As if to commemorate the Bears ' futility even in a close game, the outfield water sprinklers kicked on mysteriously, much to the delight of the Texas throng. The ' Horns went down in order but went on to score in each remaining inning. Tolen- tino led the hitting with two doubles. Texas returned to Disch-Falk the weekend of April 15 to face Rice, a team coached by one of Gustafson ' s former players, David Hall. The Owls came close, but missed out on the cigar all three times, 4-3, 7-6 and 3-2. Killingsworth got the win Friday night in relief of Clemens, who gave up nine hits. Texas jumped out to a quick 7-1 lead ii the first Saturday game when Brumley hit a 3-run triple and both Killingsworth ani Tolentino smashed home runs. The Owls chipped away slowly unt Brumley slides home to complete a double-steal in the third inning of Texas ' 14-2 win over Southeastern Oklahi 278 Texas Baseball .T! trailed only 7-6 in the last inning, with he tying run on third base. A failed suicide ueeze and rundown later, Texas had sur- ived both the threat and the game. In the second game, with the ' Horns ding 3-1 in the top of the eight, Trent ef- ctively killed the Owls ' last hopes by mak- ig a spectacular sliding catch in center field fa sure triple. Capel nailed down the Rice batters on Ive hits in eight innings, and the ' Horns had on all three games of a series that could ily have gone the other way. Texas ' ord moved to 42-8 overall and to 11-1 in onference play, virtually assuring them of n SWC Tournament berth, while Rice slip- d to a disappointing 9-9. The ' Horns stayed home again the next kend to host Texas Tech in what was illed as a face-off between Texas ' league- ading pitching (3.60 staff ERA) and Tech ' s onster bats (.324 team average). The three ' Horn victories of 12-3, 9-1 and 2 proved the old saying that good pitching ops good hitting. At the same time, the Horns raised their team batting average m .270 to .287, to prove that moderate hit- ing can murder bad pitching. In the Friday night game, Tolentino tied a :hool and conference record by cracking hree doubles. Not to be overshadowed, earron went 4-for-4 with two triples and o singles. The Saturday twin-killing saw Schiraldi id Capel again muffle the same Tech bats :hat had pounded second-place Houston, 21-4, two weeks earlier. The three-game iweep raised Texas ' overall record to 45-8, id its conference record to 14-1. Baylor wept all three of its games with Houston, hereby guaranteeing the ' Horns at least a hare of the SWC title, with six games left. Needing to win only one game to clinch heir 56th SWC crown in 68 years, UT losted the slumping Houston Cougars the weekend of April 29. Coog pitchers Doug Drabek and Rayner Voble handcuffed the ' Horns on six hits Fri- iay, while Houston scored three runs in the h inning to postpone Texas ' celebration, 3. Clemens took the loss, his third of the :ason, and second in a row to Houston. In a sense of de-ja vu, Noble went the istance in Saturday ' s opener to once again ' ad UH to a 4-3 win. Gustafson, always the ister strategist, tried everything to beat ouston, even alternating Killingsworth and bay between pitcher and right field in the ite innings, but the ' Horns fell just short. In a Centennial celebration between games, the Texas baseball program honored ill present and former lettermen. Included Pitching ace Roger " Goose " Clemens lets fly his 90-mph fastball against UT-Arlington. Texas lost the game, 10-6. Calvin " Nibbler " Schiraldi makes his 6-foot-5 stretch.

The ' Horns won the game 11-2. were nine s urviving members of the 1918-21 teams, legendary coaches Bibb Falk and Cliff Gustafson, and more than 250 ex-baseballers. Falk, near the end of the ceremony, quip- ped, " We ' ve seen enough of this, " implying UT better win the next game. They did. The ' Horns clinched their championship and the top seed in the SWC Tournament by battering five UH pitchers for a satisfying 12-2 finish. In the fourth inning, Hearron launched a long, high shot that carried over the 20-foot high section of the 400-foot wall in straight center, to become the first UT player and only the fourth player ever to ac- complish that feat. Not to be outdone, Tolentino smashed a low pitch over the fence in right center. After he touched the plate, Tolentino pointed and smiled at some fans who were holding up his native Mexican flag. The Longhorns lost two games to Oral Roberts in Tulsa, then closed out SWC play by sweeping a meaningless 3-game series with last-place A M. Texas finished its regular season at 49-12, and 15-3 in conference play, winning the title by five full games. In the SWC double-elimination tourna- ment, which the ' Horns hosted in mid-May, Texas snoozed its way past Rice 4-3 in the first round. All-SWC selections Schiraldi and Tolentino proved their worth, with 5-hit pitching from the former, and a double and home run from the latter. Chapel shut down Arkansas on a 5-hitter in the second round, striking out seven. Of- fensively, Texas scored in four of the first five innings to coast to a 9-2 win. Hodo knocked in 3 runs and Tolentino smacked yet another home run. Arkansas beat Houston before facing Texas again, and this time the Hogs came out on top, beating Clemens 5-4 on a 3-base ' Horn error in right field. Finally, the two teams met a third time, for the champion- ship. Texas bludgeoned the Pigs 14-0, behind a grand slam from Tolentino, who was named tournament most valuable player. After sweeping four practice games from Lubbock Christian, the eventual NAIA na- tional champion, Texas hosted the 6-team Central Regional, beginning May 26. Against Northeast Louisiana, Clemens] allowed 2 hits and no baserunners past se- cond base. Hearron was the leading hitter,, going 5-for-6. His double in the 5th innin, tied the team season record for doubles wit 128, and his double in the 7th broke thi record. Loy socked a triple and a homer, an Labay went 3-for-4. In all, Texas pound out 18 hits, a season high, in a 15-0 laugher. r ' u 280 Texas Baseball The laughs turned to groans as the ' Horns et Mississippi State in the winners ' bracket and lost 6-2. Schiraldi ' s record fell to 12-2 and the ' Horns found themselves needing to win four straight games just to win the tournament. Texas began its assault by eliminating Tulane 7-5. Capel scattered eight hits, and the ' Horns went through three Green Wave Ftchers, with Bates and Labay each collect- g three hits. That same day, Texas also sent Pan American home with a 6-1 score. Kill- ingsworth went the distance, giving up only four hits and no earned runs, and was backed by Tolentino ' s 3-run shot. The ' Horns then needed to beat MSU twice in one day. They did it by pitching Labay in the afternoon game. The Angleton |junior shut down the strong Bulldog attack a 5-hit, 7-0 victory. Outfielder Johnny Sutton, who had spent most of his three years at UT riding the bench, went 2-for-3 with 3 RBIs. For his per- formance he was later named MVP. Clemens and Schiraldi combined in the nightcap, scattering 11 MSU hits while the Longhorn bats roared. Brumley, Tolentino, Sutton and Burrows each had 3 hits, while Brumley and Tolentino each had 3 RBIs, and Sutton and Burrows each scored three runs to win the game 12-3. So with a 61-14 record, Texas traveled in June to the College World series in Omaha to claim the national championship that had eluded Coach Gustafson since 1975. In an opening-round game that could be labeled a mismatch, Texas took on Eastern Regional champ James Madison. With Texas batting in the 3rd inning and the bases loaded, JMU pitcher Justin Gannon fell off the mound, walking in Trent, who scored 4 runs, tying a CWS record, in the ensuing 12-0 rout. First -team Ail-American Schiraldi picked up his 13th win. Texas ' next opponent, Oklahoma State, was a team UT had beaten in Omaha in both 1981 and 1982. Trailing 4-1 in the 7th, Texas came up with three straight singles, a double by Trent off the right field wall, and Brown ' s sacrifice fly to tie the score. The ' Horns won the game in the llth, when Jamie Doughty drilled a double to right center, scoring Trent for a 6-5 win. In a matchup for the only two remaining unbeaten teams, Texas faced the Alabama Crimson Tide. Schiraldi, pitching in relief of Labay, led Texas to a 6-4, 10-inning victory. The Westlake junior survived two rain delays and a solo homer by ' Bama ' s David Magadan, the nation ' s leading hitter, to strike out 11 batters in 5 1 3 innings, in- cluding Magadan in a 9th-inning showdown. Bates doubled in the winning run to send the ' Horns into the finals. Before the final game however, UT eliminated Michigan 4-2, with Brumley ' s 5th inning grand slam, backing up Capel ' s 4- hitter. ' Bama knocked Arizona State to set up a rematch for the title. Tide pitcher Rick Browne checked Texas on one hit through 5 innings, but the ' Horns played " Gusball " in the 6th, scoring twice on two singles, a hit batter, a walk, and a groundout to knot the score 2-2. With two outs in the 7th, Killingsworth tripled to deep center, scoring Brumley. Tolentino then shocked everyone in Rosenblatt Stadium, including Coaches Gustafson and Bethea, by dropping a drag bunt past the pitcher and beating the throw to drive in another run. It broke Keith Moreland ' s school record for RBIs with 73. Clemens gave up another run in the 9th, but sent Alabama back home by retiring the last two batters to win 4-3, and set off celebrations at both the Holiday Inn in Omaha and on the Drag in Austin. The CWS win was the fourth national title for UT in baseball, and the second for Coach Gustafson, the winningest coach in college baseball, during his 16 years at UT. The ' Horns placed Hearron, Bates, Brumley and Schiraldi on the All-Tournament team, with Schiraldi named MVP. " The talent isn ' t as good as some of the talent we had on other ball clubs. That ' s what makes this one so sweet, " said Gustaf- son. by Jeff Berger and Douglas Johnson ir JW1A .ft FRONT ROW: Eddie Day, Michael Ray Trent, Joe Bob Cooper, Johnny Keane Sutton, Michael Anthony Brumley, Darren Jon Loy, Jamie Lloyd Doughty, Alan Brown, Jose Tolentino, Deron Carl Gustafson, William Bates, Tommy Paul Allen.

In 1983, there were more than 600 basketball teams in the Intramural basketball tournament. Time Out for Intramurals I ijtudents who were not recruited by Fred Akers, could not steal bases for Cliff Gustafson or hit an outside jumper for Jody Conradt, but still enjoyed the exercise and competition of sports, found an outlet in the intramural sports program at The University of Texas. The Division of Recreational Sports conducted more than 100 tournaments in 25 different sports, ranging from football to eight-ball and then some. Fifty-six percent of the student body was involved in Rec Sports, and 20,000 participated in at least one of the four major team sports: football, volleyball, basketball, and the most popular IM activity, Softball. In all divisions combined, 675 teams competed in the 1983 Softball tournament. UT received national recognition over the holidays when the Bombers, a women ' s IM football team, won the national championship in New Orleans, by defeating UT-Arlington 19-6. Texas also sent a men ' s team, The Bases, to the national meet. They had a strong showing before losing to a team from Southeastern Louisiana. The winners of all team and individual tourneys were rewarded with IM champion T-shirts, one of the biggest status symbols on campus, especially around Greg Gym. " The administration supports us and realizes the importance of Rec Sports, " said assistant director Bob Childress. " In terms of the larger universities, we are respected. I ' d say we ' re definitely among the top three programs in the nation. " Also under the jurisdiction of Rec Sports are the sport clubs. Many of the clubs, such as folk dancing and surfing, were purely recreational. Other clubs, namely lacrosse, soccer and gymnastics, competed against other universities on a non-varsity level. More than 1,500 students participated in the 39 active clubs, all of which were organized and run by students. " Rec Sports is a student-run program, and the student involvement makes the program go, " said Childress. Students with a penchant for hiking, biking, or kayaking had available to them the Rec Sports Outdoor Program. Outings were scheduled to areas in and around Texas, either for single days, weekends, or long trips over Christmas and spring break. All trips were attended by an experienced guide, and most were very affordable. The most popular trips included visits to Yellowstone, Purgatory ski resort, Big Bend and the Yucatan Peninsula. Regardless of one ' s favorite recreational pastime, chances were good that the activity could be found within the Division of Recreational Sports. by Jeff Berger 282 Texas Intramurals c ha ' " ltd fa: ' - b: wo Intramural Softball teams compete in a regular season game.

The dress caught on fire And burned her entire Front page, sport-section and all. - The Texas Ranger, December, 1938 The Age of Enlightenment he University did not realize what it created. During its 49 year existence, the Texas Ranger annually groomed an im- petuous staff of Rangeroos that published a magazine that ridiculed and pranked the in- stitution that had conceived it. They were troublemakers and amusement was their top priority. The Rangeroos were creative journalists who sometimes got a lit- tle carried away with suppressing the forces of authority The University of Texas. They meant no harm. There were some bad puns and several sexual innuendos, but the Rangeroos were dedicated to enlightening their readers, the students. In 1923 the Texas Ranger became the of- ficial humor magazine of UT. The cover of the debut issue featured Hairy Ranger, comic mascot of the publication, prancing with an attractive senorita. A fuss was made because in those years it was considered immoral for even cartoon angles to mix with Mexicans. Through the years, the Texas Ranger became notorious for printing " unfit material, " including a detailed description in a 1947 issue on how to cheat. The University was perturbed with the article ' s claim that 66.8 percent of UT students cheat and they promptly disproved it with research data that only 55 percent of UT students cheat. The editor, Johnny Bryson, retaliated by selling the entire story to Life magazine and its millions of readers. In 1961, A. Y. McCown, dean of students, declared that the Texas Ranger was " beyond the pale of good taste and decency " and it was a storehouse of " gutter level " humor. The Rangeroos took revenge by publishing Dean McCown jokes. The Texas Student Publications Board, the governing body of all official student publications, frequently refused to approve Ranger material, in- cluding three pages of the " Girl of the Month " pictures in 1964 which were deemed " too risque " for student eyes. The 60s were a traumatic time for the Texas Ranger. The Vietnam conflict erupted and suddenly the student body was more serious; the Ranger became irrelevant. The humor magazine lost its satiric edge and began to focus on more topical subjects. And so in 1972 an age of enlightenment came to an end and the Texas Ranger was put to sleep. 290 Student Leadership CT or POLLS COMM. THE COVER OF THE MARCH 1940 TEXAS RANGER EXPOSES THE " BUSINESS " OF RUNNING FOR OFFICE Student Leadership 291 TEXAS STUDENT PUBLICATIONS BOARD " . . . Green noted a ' great deal of concern about sexism in advertising ' during a dilemma faced by the Board in the fall. 1 The Texas Student Publications Board began 1982-83 with " a little bit of new blood " when Nancy Green, former student publications adviser at the University of Kentucky, replaced Loyd Edmonds upon his retirement and became the new general manager of TSP on Sept. 1. In addition to Green, the Board consisted of four elected undergraduates from jour- nalism or advertising and two students-at- large elected from the student body. Two faculty members from journalism or adver- tising, one faculty member from business ad- ministration and two professionals com- pleted the count of voting members. Non- voting members included editors of the Cactus, Daily Texan, and UTmost; the Daily Texan managing editor; and a representative from the Dean of Students Office. The TSP Board faced another year of controversy and decision-making, using the TSP Handbook as their guide. According to Green, " The responsibility of the Board is to ensure that the policies and procedures of the handbook are adhered to. It has the power to change policies and procedures of the handbook with the approval of the presi- dent of The University. " Green noted a " great deal of concern about sexism in advertising " during a dilem- ma faced by the Board in the fall of 1982. To resolve the debate surrounding several ques- tionable advertisements which appeared in The Daily Texan, the TSP Board referred to the advertising code of the handbook. The first of these advertisements was for Tecate beer and pictured three women clutching cans of beer. The captions " Pop, " " Squeeze " and " Shake " appeared under each, respec- tively. The second was a promotion for Car- ta Blanca beer which featured a model in a revealing bathing suit. The Advertising Review Committee ruled that the adver- tisements were " sexist " based on the hand- book restriction that no advertising would be accepted by any UT student publication that subjugated either sex to an inferior role. A second duty of the Board was to decide the fate of UTmost, which had been judged the best college magazine in the nation in 1981-82. Because of the magazine ' s failure to overcome a deficit, the Board was uncertain about its continuance. Green observed that UTmost was a " high-quality product, " and " We ' ll try to continue its publication. " Green expressed admiration for UT and the TSP staff. " I like it very much. I am pleased with the facilities. They ' re excellent. We have dedicated full-time people as well as student staff members. by Traci Graves FIRST ROW: David Warren Burkett, Isabella C.

Texas Student Publications 293 CACTUS " . . . the Centennial edition Cactus provides a lasting image of The University of Texas in its 100th year. " The 1983 Cactus provides " a firm point of reference what The University used to be and what it ' s like today and how it got that way, " said Brian Vanicek, editor of the 1983 Centennial edition Cactus yearbook. The first 96 pages in the 1983 Cactus focused upon the first 100 years of The University. The section ' s content was based on Vanicek ' s research during the summer and fall of 1982. Much of the information on The University ' s history he gathered from the Barker Texas History Center, and past editions of the Daily Texan and Cactus. Unlike many yearbooks, the Cactus was not just a picture book. Each photograph was accompanied by copy that answers the who, what, when, where and how. Copy also complemented photography by elaborating on the photo ' s subject. The 1982 edition of the Cactus was recognized for " outstanding achievement in the writing, editing, design and production of a superlative student publication " by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. For this, the book received Columbia Univer- sity ' s Gold Crown Award the highest honor awarded to a college yearbook. The 1983 C actus was a collaborative effort of the entire staff. The close-knit staff represented a cross-section of University life, including members of various student organizations and academic disciplines.

" In December 1899, Col. W. S. Simkins, one of the most beloved UT professors of law, asked a student in his equity class to identify the word " Peregrinus " (the name of an ancient Roman official). The student was Jim Livingston McCall, the star center of the Longhorn football team. McCall replied drowsily, " Wai, I don ' t know, Judge, ' less it could be some kind of animal. " Russell R. Savage of Corpus Christi drew a picture in class of an animal and labeled it a Peregrinus. It was later copied in plaster and the statue became the idol of the School of Law. With detailed body features from a fox, donkey, eagle and stork, the beast ' s ap- pearance represented symbolic meanings of the legal profession. The small orange and white figurine, nicknamed " Perry " was also the symbol of a feud between the lawyers and the engineers. The School of Engineer- ing and the School of Law were rivals on the UT campus and Perry was captured several times by the engineers and taken for a ride. The reigning Perry in 1983 was said to be the fourth edition of the original. The title Peregrinus was thus fitting as a name for the School of Law ' s yearbook. The 1983 edition of the Peregrinus was the 33rd volume. It was approximately 140 pages in length and represented all aspects of the school: students, organizations, activities, faculty and honors. Eric Behrens, the editor of the Peregrinus, said that the yearbook sold well. During the 1982-83 school term, ap- proximately 800 of the 1,500 law students purchased a copy. Not only was it a wonder- ful keepsake, but a handy reference book, too. Former students found the yearbook helpful when they began practicing law. It aided them in recommending other lawyers suited for their clients ' problems. Behrens, along with 12 other law students, worked on the Peregrinus during the 1982-83 year. The Peregrinus was an excellent book, in that all aspects of the School of Law were shown, from the Texas Law Review to the Chicano Law Students Association. As it had for nearly 40 years, the staff produced a year- book of high caliber. Thus, they helped to carry on another of UT ' s great traditions in the Centennial year. by Ilene Breitbarth : ;:::::. ...l il taws: -:: " . taobw :.r Of :.:::.-- k tan of PEREGRINUS STAFF: Scott Glenn Camp, Lynn Berat, Eric Gerard Behrens, Lisa Lynne Bagley.

For its bold editorials, creative fiction and superb verse, UTmost won national and campus recognition in 1981-82. " " In order to beat the red tape at UT: . . . Never, under any circumstances, give The University your correct address. It ' s suicide. . . . Make friends with the janitors they can let you into anybody ' s office. . . . Learn to lie. " The above advice and much more was located in the " Underground Guide, " an ar- ticle appearing in the fall edition of UTmost, the student magazine of The University. For its bold editorials, creative fiction and superb verse, UTmost won national and cam- pus recognition in 1981-82. Sigma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalists, rated the quarterly publication the " Nation ' s Best Collegiate Magazine. " UTmost staffers received a plaque at Sigma Delta Chi ' s regional conference in Milwaukee in November, 1982. In the same contest, UTmost staffer John Schwartz won the " Best Magazine Non- Fiction " award for his article, " The Chair- man Steps Down. " In his article, appearing in UTmost ' s winter 1981 issue, Schwartz discussed the era of the late Frank C. Erwin Jr. As chairman of the UT System Board of Regents and a University lobbyist, Erwin was a controversial figure known for his temperamental nature. In the Columbia Scholastic Press Associa- tion contest for college publications, UTmost received the Medalist award. CSPA said UTmost was " interestingly written, in- telligently edited, and superbly conceived. " UTmost editor, Mark McKinnon, believed the awards " reinforced what we ' ve thought all along that we are doing a good job. " UTmost ' s success was characterized by its very broad scope of coverage. McKinnon explained that " this year I ' ve tried to change it (UTmost) away from the UT center. " While the magazine became more oriented to an Austin audience, it still related to UT students. For example, in the winter publica- tion of UTmost, staffer Debi Martin inter- viewed Sharon Vasquez, assistant professor of drama, who was responsible for the birth of the UT Dance Repertory Theater. A per- forming arts club founded in 1979, DRT allowed dance majors to gain performing ex- perience through two annual shows. In addition, UT ' s hidden past was re- vealed through investigative reporting that lambasted the shining chronicles of UT FIRST ROW: Richard Usher Steinberg, Kathryn Lynn Gregor, Mark David McKinnon, Michael Waynne Godwin.

Crane. history, which appeared in University publications throughout the Centennial year. " 100 Years of Ineptitude, " compiled by staffer Jeanne Mixon, presented more than 100 discriminating facts about UT. For example: " 1876: The Texas Constitution calls for the creation of ' a university of the first class. ' Creation of a separate college for ' colored youths ' was also ordered but the legislature is forbidden to fund it. " " Sept. 30, 1928: Hazing? What hazing?

" Many mini-features within " 100 Years of Ineptitude, " included " Hirings and Firings, " " Sweatt vs. UT " and " Radicals, " epitomized UTmost ' s tell-all coverage. " Hirings and Firings " showed how politics often blocked UT ' s drive for academic excellence. For example, in 1940 Gov. W. " Pappy " Lee O ' Daniel ordered former UT President Homer Rainey to fire four professors because, O ' Daniel explained, " he was giving the faculty too much freedom. " " Sweatt vs. UT " depicted the barriers Heman Sweatt faced as the first black admit- ted to UT Law School. And " Radicals " ex- amined the conflicts between administration and students, which often resulted in student protests. For example in 1969 students pro- tested the removal of trees for the construc- tion of Memorial Stadium. Following the " 100 Years of Ineptitude " article, UTmost used humor and sarcasm to peer into the future in " UT; The Next 100 Years. " This feature from the winter ' 82 issue predicted the news of 2083 to read: " UT launches a media blitz, using the UT Advertising school ' s popular slogan: " You ' re never alone with a UT clone. " As off-the-wall as the magazine was, the 1982-83 UTmost had a purpose. By acting as a catalyst for controversial people and issues, UTmost gave readers a broader insight into UT. by Monique Bordelon UTmost 299 THE DAILY TEXAN " . . . Politics remained a focal point . . ., and The Texan jumped into the arena on the local, state and national levels. The Daily Texan and liberalism went hand in hand, according to popular sentiment voiced by UT students and faculty. Texan editor Lisa Beyer said the paper tended toward a more liberal stance in its 1982-83 editorials because the Texan editorial staff used them to express their personal points. However, Beyer stressed that all news ar- ticles and features were as objective as " humanly possible. " Beyer said " What I ' ve done is carried on the tradition of the Texan, hopefully for the better. " This journalistic tradition included producing an informative daily newspaper for University students. Beyer, along with her editorial staff, ex- pressed progressive political views and at the same time brought tremendous im- provements to the Texan. In January 1983, the paper ' s entire typeface was redesigned. The type became cleaner and crisper, follow- ing a trend among most U.S. newspapers. The sharper lines made the paper easier to read and was less strain on readers ' eyes. The paper switched to a typeface often used in textbooks called palatino. The graphic design editor also systematized the paper ' s headlines style. Only two bold typefaces were used The result was a more contem- porary look. Politics remained a focal point for students and faculty, and the Texan jumped into the arena on the local, state and national levels. Their coverage of the fall general elec- tion of 1982 was lauded across the state. In 1982-83, The Daily Texan also featured an unprecedented interview with Barbara Jordan. The former U.S. representative joined the faculty in 1979 as the Lyndon Baines Johnson Centennial Chair in National Policy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. However, in that four-year period Jordan had never spoken to the Texan. The Oct. 7, 1982 article was carried on both the Associated Press and United Press Interna- tional wire services. A reading of banned books featuring Texas folklorist John Henry Faulk, was sponsored by the Texan in reaction to Mel and Nora Gabler. The ultra-conservative couple from Longview continued to lead a crusade in the Texas Legislature against books they deemed " unsuitable " for Texas schoolchildren. To attract a more diverse reading au- dience, staffers added the following sections: the Monday " Sports Journal, " a business page called " Money, " a Friday section called " This Weekend " and " Soapbox, " a student opinion section of the editorial page. While Beyer pledged she would fight to abolish sexist advertising, ads such as the suggestive Feb. 25 spring break supplement for Budweiser beer still appeared. Beyer said, " Suggestive ads should be eliminated because they are sexist. They perpetuate the stereotype of women as playthings. " Beyer explained that it was the Daily Texan Display Advertising department ' s respon- sibility to review the content of all advertis- ing and to either refuse " questionable " materials or refer them to the TSP Review Committee. " It ' s a matter of if they (the advertising department) catch it or not. They are not as sensitive to the issue as I am, " Beyer said. by Ilene Breitbarth Mark Barren, Lisa Beyer, David Teece and Lynn Easley meet for the daily budget meeting to determine what stories will appear in the following day ' s Ttxan. j 300 The Daily Texan THE DAILY TEXAN DAILY TEXAN STAFF: FIRST ROW: Gary Layne Warren, Tracy Ellen Duncan, George G.

The Union celebrated its 50th anniversary and was a continual success because of the amount of student input through the years. The Union ' s Programming Council, Operations Council and Board of Directors all combined their efforts to govern the Texas Union. The Operations Council dealt with the daily operations of the Union and was divid- ed into four subcommittees: Finance, Public Relations, Dining Services and Manage- ment. Each chairman, their advisers and board members served on the council. The Board of Directors oversaw the $8 million budget which took care of program- ming, business, dining and sales. They also made staff appointments and decisions con- cerning building use expansion. Coordinating all Texas Union programs and dedicated to establishing quality pro- grams was the Programming Council. The chairman of each student committee sat on the Council and coordinated the programs sponsored by each committee. The objective was to make the Union the best it could be.

The Texas Union Finance Committee, established in fall, 1981, was the Union ' s budget review and analysis team. " The Texas Union Finance Committee, established in fall 1981, was the Union ' s budget review and analysis team. Although the committee had no input in the budget ' s formulation, it analyzed the Texas Union ' s costs and revenues and reported its findings to the Texas Union Board of Directors. Sug- gestions for more efficient operations were presented along with the financial report. The Finance Committee consisted mainly of liberal arts and business majors. Members explained one of the Union ' s 50 cost and revenue centers through a budget exercise. In the budget exercise each member mon- itored a " particular center ' s fluctuations through a computer summary of its daily business. " The Finance Committee, com- prised of 30 members and guided by chair- man Doug Hoy, analyzed the data in order to predict revenue increases and their causes. As a self-supporting organization, the Union only received University funds to cover 15 percent of its utility costs. The ma- jority of Union revenues was generated through student fees and Union services. In fall 1982 the Finance Committee studied the Union budget. It provided infor- mation on the fee referendum that helped students understand the referendum ' s significance. Later, in March 1983, the com- mittee held a question and answer session called " Everything You Wanted to Know About Union Finance But Were Afraid to Ask. " Through this program, the committee encouraged students to find out about the Union ' s finances. by Ann McCoy : FIRST ROW: Donna Marie Liana, Julia Kathleen Barrett, Janice Lynn Scott, Ann Catharine Smith.

The Texas Union Public Relations Com- mittee was formed in order " to com- municate with outside groups, " said vice chairman Tom Forestier. The TUPRC had 50 members, " each representing different majors and back- grounds, " chairman Shelley McElroy said. McElroy explained that the committee worked " toward a common goal pro- moting and expanding the Union ' s com- munications through four subcommittees. " The Alumni Relations Subcommittee sought to improve communication with former students who were involved with the Union through a reception and newsletter. To promote greater Union usage and to forge stronger student-Union ties, the Outreach Subcommittee sponsored a stu- dent leadership party March 28 in the Union Ballroom. Delegates from more than 100 UT organizations learned about available Union services. Student leaders discovered services like catering, copy services and meeting rooms offered at little or no charge. A Student Survey Subcommittee polled students to determine their needs. Sample questions were: " Do you think there is a need for more computer terminals on cam- pus? " and " Do you think there is a need for more student parking areas? " Questions calculated to define Union gripes were: " Are you satisfied with the din- ing services on campus? " and " would you like to see more study rooms and or music rooms on campus? " The completed survey was presented to the Texas Union Board of Directors, who used the survey to determine what changes or additions they needed to make. The results then were forwarded to the Universi- ty Board of Regents. " Most importantly the survey showed students ' needs. Hopefully, the Regents will use this input in deciding how to use land, specifically the land on east campus, " said McElroy. The Media Relations Subcommittee was designed to promote the Union itself. Their largest project was a logo contest to publicize the Union ' s 50th anniversary. Students, staff and faculty submitted logos to honor the anniversary. The winning logo was published along with the original Union logo during the anniversary year. At the end of its first year, the Public Relations Committee had successfully strengthened Union ties with the University community. by Monique Bordelon FIRST ROW: Howard Miller.

' COMPLAINT: 10-26-82 " My friends and I would like to have pizza offered at dinner also. " COMPLAINT: 12- 14-82 " The Texas Union Forty Acres Room should have smoking and non- smoking areas because some students like myself do not like to eat in smoke -filled rooms. " The above complaints were actual student suggestions reviewed by the Texas Union Dining Services Committee members. The committee was designed to improve and enhance Union food services. " The committee ' s primary goal is to ade- quately serve the students, " said chairwoman Sabrine Bordelon, " and the most effective way is through direct student input. " The committee members gathered input from student surveys and from a suggestion box located in the Forty Acres Room. When a suggestion or a complaint reoccurred, the members discussed remedies and took ac- tion. The students who submitted the above complaints got permanent results. Pizza lovers could get their favorite food. at lunch and dinner, and the non-smokers received their own section of the room. Menu reviews and a Food Price Com- parison survey were other projects that the Dining Services Committee undertook to improve the quality and selection of Union foods. The food price survey compared the price of food offered at local food establishments to the price of the Union ' s food. Committee members discovered that most of the Union ' s food prices were lower than other food establishments ' prices. Also, from the food price comparison survey, the committee learned that the Union could of- fer their pizza at a more reasonable price if the cooks prepared the pizzas themselves in- stead of buying them pre-made. The satellite food services the Varsity Cafeteria, the business, engineering and art buildings ' cafeterias, the Townes Hall and the Performing Arts Center cafeterias were also evaluated to determine the demand for new and different kinds of food. In its second year, the Dining Services Committee, had made real progress. Besides improving food services, the committee had managed to put a lid on the trash that ac- cumulated in the eating areas. The positive relations fostered between the Din ing Ser- vices Staff and Dining Services Committee reinforced that old saying that there is in- deed strength in numbers. by Monique Bordelon FIRST ROW: Frederick Brooke Shields, Jennifer Goad, Sabrine Yvette Bordelon, Jacqueline Ruth Mudd, Alice Jamie Paul.

Dining Services Committee 305 TEXAS UNION " ... The Management Committee helped with the April Union Reunion in conjunction with Round-Up. " " We changed our name because our duties changed. We want our name to reflect the fact that we are now more of an um- brella committee, " said Tom Trahan, presi- dent of the Management Committee. In August 1982, the Building Policy Com- mittee of the Texas Union became the Management Committee. Its new respon- sibilities included not only operational policies of the Texas Union Building, but also policies concerning reservations, designation of office space for student organizations, and also the making of guidelines for subcommittees of the Texas Union Board of Directors. These subcom- mittees included Dining Services, Finance and Public Relations. The Management Committee was also in charge of designating " No Smoking " areas in the Union and establishing new facilities. For example, in 1982 they considered purchasing a satellite dish which would allow the Union to offer cable television. The Afro-American and Chicano cultural rooms became a topic of discussion when the Management Committee presented its proposal to the Union Board of Directors in December. The Board of Directors had ask- ed for a proposal from the Management Committee which would allow a wider usage of these two rooms. The committee pro- posal stated that any student group would be allowed to use these rooms but that cultural minorities would have priority use. In a compromise proposal, it decided that any group could use the rooms provided they were planning a project which involved culture. The Management Committee helped with the April Union Reunion in conjunction with Round-Up. Committee members gave Texas-Exes and former members of Texas Union committees tours of the Texas Union Building. In the spring, the Facilities Research Com- mittee researched the feasibility of a new stu- dent Union Building on the east side of campus. by Kathy Jones FIRST ROW: Michael Shawn Smith, Sandra Elaine Willeke, Karen Jo Cox, Thomas Erwin Trahan.

" The University of Texas planned to for- mally recognize its 100th anniversary with a birthday bash on the West Mall on Sept. 15, 1983, the same date that classes began a cen- tury ago. The West Mall was to be closed off so that a live band and barbecue buffet could be set up. The Centennial Committee helped plan UT ' s birthday party in addition to festivities for the Union ' s 50th anniversary. Committee chairman Carol Cetera said their main pur- pose was to " coordinate the Union ' s par- ticipation in the Centennial and anniversary celebrations. " The anniversary celebration in winter 1983 would mark the Texas Union ' s 50 years of serving the University community. The 12-member committee developed most of the plans in spring 1982. Later the group grew to 20 students who carried out these plans. Applicants were selected by Cotera and her two assistants Kathryne Bennett and Mollie Crosby. Along with the Centennial office in the Main Building, the committee planned the leadership reunion held April 8-9. Former campus leaders and Texas exes reminisced about their college days and were entertain- ed by variety shows. A Texas Union exhibit at the reunion showcased campus sights and student activities. To spur interest in the celebration, a Centennial member sat on every Union com- mittee. These liaison members in this way brainstormed ideas for projects. Among the results of this cooperation was Washington Post columnist William Raspberry ' s Feb. 18 speech on " The Role of the Educated Black in Contemporary Society. " The Afro- American Culture Committee and Ideas and Interactions Committee sponsored Raspberry ' s appearance as an official Centennial speaker. On Feb. 23-28, in recognition of the Centennial, the Union Film Committee saluted Texas films and filmmakers in a film series called " Texas: the Third Coast. " In ad- dition, the Union Theater Committee plan- ned to sponsor in fall 1983 " Texas Trilogy, " a play about a teenager ' s " coming of age " in a small Texas town. The committee had also planned several Union-related activities to take place in fall 1983. Included were a night of partying and discount food at the Union, an updating of the video tape about the Union, and a study in which students from other universities would evaluate the Union ' s service and pro- grams. Cotera said this study would " give us a direction to go for the future. " She also hoped students would have gained a " better sense of The University " once the 1983 celebrations were over. by Traci Graves FIRST ROW: Michael Shawn Smith, Mollie Susan Crosby, Karen Mary Benz, Carol Ann Cotera.

To herald the annual Friday Gras set for that evening, guest star Joe stood on the Union steps autographing T-shirts and showering his fans with colorful plastic beads. Friday Gras, an " all-nighter " party spon- sored by the Special Events Committee, drew a record crowd of 4,500 and featured popular bands like Carrasco and the Crowns, Rank and File, The Lift, The Argyles, and Masterpiece. The All-Nighter also had a casino and New Orleans-style food in keep- ing with the Mardi Gras spirit. In October, SEC members donned monster outfits and distributed flyers on the West Mall to pro- mote the Halloween Texas Union Horrow Show, which the SEC sponsored. The show included a haunted house, three dance bands, and a Cabaret Theatre production of " Beach Blanket Bimbo. " Later in the fall, 1982 talented student musicians and come- dians took part in the All-Campus Talent Ex- travaganza, sponsored by the SEC. " This year we had lots of serious music and good talent, " said Trisha Pitchford, SEC chairman. Winning acts such as the band Sporty Plaids were scheduled to perform for audiences in the Texas Tavern in the spring. In the spring SEC chose to throw a M A S H Bash instead of a funeral for the long-running TV series Feb. 28 in the Texas Tavern. M A S H fans arrived wearing ar- my fatigues and watched the final episode on big-screen television under pitched tents.

CEC members determined the who, what, when and where of what performing artists were to visit the campus The Cultural Entertainment Committee, in the opinion of many students and faculty at UT, pulled off a memorable year of enter- tainment. Sam Boswell, chairman of this Texas Union committee, said that the most unique aspect of CEC was " the students ' role in deciding what performers can come to The University. " The 40 or so members determined the who, what, when and where of what performing artists were to visit the campus. They also promoted these events through advertising, ushering, ticket taking and hosting hospitality parties for the artists. The CEC ' s main intention was to provide a wide variety of culture to the University community and the city of Austin. " By ac- complishing this, " said Boswell, " the students and Austin citizens were exposed to different types of performing arts. " Boswell said that CEC enabled him to keep up with his favorite form of entertainment music. He was most proud of two things that CEC accomplished in 1982-83. First, students with the CEC-PAC discount package were able to buy two tickets at discount prices with only I.D. showing proof of the special rates. Se- cond, the discount on ticket prices was in- creased from 25 percent to 30 percent. Before this policy became effective students could only buy one ticket at the discount price, which prevented students from pur- chasing " date tickets. " Among the musical stylists who per- formed for full houses were Earl Klugh, a jazz guitarist; Spyro Gyra, a popular jazz group; the Berlin Philharmonic Octet; the Vienna Symphony; the Vienna Choir Boys; and Heinz Hollinger, renowned oboe player. Such dance troupes as the Nikolais Dance Theatre, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Les Ballets Trockadero danced their way into the hearts of UT students and Austinites. Bringing the essence of Broadway to the University of Texas were the productions of " The Pirates of Penzance " and " Evita.

" " We try to expose the campus and Austin community to various aspects of the fine arts including art, music, drama, dance and literature, " said Britt Brookshire, chairman of the Texas Union Fine Arts Committee. The FAC plant, poster and holiday craft sales proved popular among students look- ing for decorating ideas or for the " perfect " gift for a discriminating friend. The FAC in- vited potters, glass blowers, weavers and other artisans to participate in the holiday sale, which gave shoppers the opportunity to observe the creation of their purchases. The Fine Arts Committee encouraged the talents of local artists by sponsoring art ex- hibitions and contests. Winners of the November photography contest were featured in the Texas Union gallery and in UTmost magazine. In April, the Committee planned something new: an open hanging sculpture and kite contest to herald the com- ing of spring. Contestants were eligible to win cash prizes and gift certificates for art supplies. The entries hung from the ceiling inside the Union, creating a display of color. In another " flavorful " FAC art contest, entries were disqualified for using glue. On April 27 the Fine Arts Committee sponsored an Edible Art Contest, emphasizing not only beauty and uniqueness, but also taste. All ex- hibits were required to be totally edible and after being judged, all art was . . . eaten. " Masterpiece Matinee, " an ongoing week- ly performance of small ensembles and soloists debuting in March, entertained Union audiences every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Presi dential Lounge. Faculty, staff and students comprised a variety of acts performing music, dance, poetry, drama and mime for lunch crowds. In celebration of The University ' s Centen- nial, the FAC allotted two weeks in April for a symposium on Texas artistry. Instructors of the Union ' s informal classes worked with the FAC in preparation for a quilting exhibi- tion and performances of folk musicians and square dancers. " We ' re a hard-working committee whose members have become good friends, " said Britt Brookshire. " We encourage students interested in the arts to join us. We ' re not a bunch of Beethoven-brains.

Projects included The Madrigal Dinner, cabaret din- ner, theatre performances, and the musical revue " Side by Side by Sondheim. " A record number of patrons journeyed back to the days of jolly old England during the five presentations of the 1982 Madrigal Dinner. The Texas Union Ballroom was transformed into a 16th-century banquet hall, complete with royalty, serfs and authen- tic Renaissance fare for dinner. Tastebuds were treated to an unusual combination of chicken and anchovies, sirloin steak, cin- namon apples, flaming rum cake and all the black bread and butter they could eat. Likewise, wenches, jugglers, wandering minstrels, a magician, a story teller and other players mingled with the guests. The king and court presided over the banquet, lending their operatic voices and boisterous shenanigans to the evening ' s magic. " Beach Blanket Bimbo, " " Side by Side by Sondheim " and " Nancita " were the year ' s dinner theater presentations. " Beach Blanket Bimbo, " a spoof of the ' 50s, featured a soap opera skit and musical numbers from " Stor- my Weather " and " The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. " Professional director Susan Dillard headed " Side by Side, " a musical revue showcasing the life and music of Broadway composer lyricist Stephen Sondheim.

The Film Committee brought ' a wide range of films to UT and tried to maintain diversity through cultural films. ' When was the last time you saw a good film for less than $2? The Texas Union Film Committee not only charged cheap admis- sion, but also provided UT students on- campus screenings of such Oscar-winning classics as " Casablanca, " " A Raisin in the Sun, " and " To Kill A Mockingbird. " Trivia questions, like " Name the two most suc- cessful films produced in 1939, " were flashed on the screen before each feature presenta- tion. The Film Committee brought " a wide range of films to The University and tried to maintain diversity through cultural films, " said committee president Kent Hughes. " Sometimes we pull our hair out trying to make sure everything goes right, " Hughes said, referring to the Texas Union National Student Film Competition held during the spring semester. Press releases were sent to film schools nationwide to solicit entries. In March, the Film Committee narrowed the entries to 25 films, which were then judged by members of the Texas film community. The judges represented the production, ar- tistic and critical aspects of filmmaking. For the contest ' s first year, each film was criti- qued on its individual merit. After the win- ners were announced, the top films were screened in the Texas Union Theater. The grand prize was $400 and the four runners-up each received $100. In 1982-83, programs were developed representing various film genres. For Feb- ruary, in tribute to the Centennial, films made in Texas were shown in the program, " Texas: The Third Coast. " The films included " Giant " and " The Last Picture Show. " A spr- ing program featured films from the 1950s. Committee member Josie Nericcio said the program dealt with " the time in the ' 50s after World War II. The Cold War was coming up and there was a lot of paranoia about com- munism, the red scare and McCarthyism. " We wanted to show how it was reflected in Hollywood ... in the movies they made at that time. " The program focused on science fiction and featured biographies on blacklisted screenwriters and actresses. By the way, the two most successful films of 1939 were " Gone With the Wind " and " The Wizard of Oz.

Contestants paid a $5 entry fee and receiv- ed a T-shirt stamped with the UT Runa- round logo. Trophies were awarded to all first place winners in each division: 12-17- year-olds, 18-29-year-olds, 30-39-year-olds, 40-year-olds and over, and wheelchair. " This year ' s Rec Committee worked ideal- ly together, " said Jim Roach, committee chairman. " Everyone worked really hard and everything turned out to be such big suc- cesses. " The Rec Committee scored its big- gest financial success at two casino nights. The first casino night occurred during the fall Friday Gras, a Texas Union all-nighter. Participants paid a $3 admission and receiv- ed $1,000 in Bevo Bucks. These bucks were gambled on blackjack, roulette, craps and poker. At the night ' s end T-shirts, glasses and dinners for two at Austin restaurants were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Proceeds from the auction went to the general Texas Union programming fund, which financed Union activities. The second casino night was modeled after a wild west saloon. At the April 22 event in the Texas Union Ballroom, gamblers again paid $3 and received $1,000 in Bevo Bucks. However, this time all players could bid on a grand prize a video arcade game. Donated by the Texas Union ' s Recreation Center, the arcade game went to the bidder who had the most Bevo Bucks. In the fall semester the committee design- ed a haunted house depicting the made-in- Texas classic horror flick, " The Texas Chain- saw Massacre. " Staged in the Texas Union ' s Programming Office, the Haunted House was a horrific success. Later, the Rec Committee held a hacky- sack demonstration in the Texas Union Ballroom. This game was played by a group of agile people who kicked a tiny bean bag around with their legs, feet and heads. " The Rec Committee worked really hard in the planning and performing of the ac- tivities and we improved each semester, " said Roach. by Michele Lehman Recreation Committee 313 TEXAS UNION " . . .

Fashions of local designers and lines carried by Austin merchants were modeled. Another AACC function in January was a concert by " Sweet Honey in the Rock, " a women ' s a capella group. Their activist music expressed political and social themes. To commemorate the struggle for civil rights in the ' 60s, AACC led a candlelight march from Jester to the Texas Union. Ap- proximately 40 students, mainly Jester residents, took part, Cash said. The climax of Black History Month was William Raspberry ' s speech.

CCC hosted Chicano Night every other Tuesday in the Tavern. Salsa, polka, and Mexican music were featured. " I To " step up community involvement bet- ween the students and the minority com- munity of Austin " was the main objective of the Texas Union Chicano Culture Commit- tee in 1982-83, according to committee chair Sylvia Ramirez. Strictly on a volunteer basis, the 20-member group tackled this goal by hosting cultural and social events. CCC began 1983 celebrating the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Feb. 2. The treaty, signed by the United States and Mexico, en- sured Mexicans the right to keep their land, language and culture. CCC hosted Chicano Night every other Tuesday in the Texas Tavern. Salsa, polka and Mexican music were featured. Par- ticipants came to dance, sit back, enjoy a beer and listen to the music. I Dancing is the main attraction at Chicano Night. An April 29 dance on the Texas Union Patio was sponsored by CCC, along with La Amisted, Phi Kappa Theta, the National Chicano Health Organization and the Hispanic Students Association. The highlight of the 1983 spring semester was the Cinco de Mayo celebration. In recognition of the Mexican army ' s victory over an invading French force on May 15, 1862, CCC sponsored a fajita sale and lec- tures by UT professors on Mexican culture. Another highlight was " La Honda de Los Chicanitos at UT, " a play written by CCC member Armando Villafranca, which depicted the Chicano experience at UT.

The Human Issues Committee . . . designed programs which created awareness and understanding of social issues. " The Human Issues Committee, relatively new among Texas Union committees, designed programs which created awareness and understanding of social issues facing students at UT. Members believed that their committee was unique in that its low budget created a need to do much of their advertis- ing by word-of-mouth. Because of this, chairman Geoffrey Wurzel and assistant chairman Ann Bartlett worked to instill ex- citement in committee members, encourag- ing them to be creative with their ideas and at the same time, financially astute. " When we finish a program, we feel that we have done an in-depth study of that topic. " Geoffrey Wurzel said that the com mittee chose two major subject areas to work with and held week-long symposiums on each subject. The first topic, " How Do You Spell Belief; 1 " dealt with various religious beliefs and helped students decide for themselves what they believed. The se- cond program, sponsored in February, was entitled " Opening The Closet Door. " This symposium dealt with various respectives on the social issue of homosexuality. By offer- ing as many as 13 separate programs on each topic, the Human Issues Committee believed it had covered each subject thoroughly. Other important issues were dealt with on a smaller scale and with a more personal focus. In a program called " Catch the Facts Not The Virus, " the committee worked in conjunction with the Health Center and Counseling Center to make students aware of the facts concerning herpes. Among other small scale programs were a hunger briefing held in November which dealt with the pro- blem of world hunger; a program called " It ' s Never Too Late To Get Involved " which was designed to help students become in- volved in University activities; a roommate mixer held in the Texas Union Ballroom in April to help students find roommates for the following fall semester; and in May, the committee sponsored a " Sanity Fair " to teach students to deal with the stress and strain of Finals ' Week. by Kathy Jones FIRST ROW: John David Robertson, Kimberlee Gildon, Amy N.

" Pauley ' s speech ended a five-day lecture series on the TV media. Earlier that week, 12 College of Communication professors spoke on such topics as career opportunities in broadcasting, TV as a communicator and TV sex and violence. " The purpose of the I I Committee is to stop students ' ignorance in world issues by bringing knowledgeable individuals to cam- pus to speak on current events to UT students, " said chairwoman Ellen Mathias. " The I I Committee feels that it is necessary for students to educate themselves bookwise and worldwise, " Mathias said. President Reagan ' s policies were address- ed by former New York Times correspondent and Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh who spoke on " Foreign Policy and Jour- nalism " during the fall symposium entitled " Reagan: Midterm Evaluation. " Another forum, this time on " The New South, " featured Andrew Young, United Nations delegate in the Carter administra- tion. Young addressed the problems of the South ' s population and industrial growth. Along with Austin ' s former Mayor Carole McClellan, Young was part of a panel which discussed growth of the Southwest. I I also sponsored a contemporary fic- tion symposium for UT students March 7-8. Author John Hawkes spoke on the use of comical symbols about sex and death in modern literature. Another author who spoke at the symposium was John Earth who stressed the need for more parodies of the American history through literature in order to " come into terms with our reality. " Students could speak with guest lecturers via a question and answer section at the end of speeches. Students thus expressed their opinions and talked to the speakers. Student interaction resulted from " College Bowl, " sponsored by I I. Mathias said the " battle of the brains enabled students to interact with each other through a contest of their knowledge. " Questions ranged from historical facts to mathematical formulas. by Monique Bordelon Ideas and Interaction Committee 317 UNIVERSITY OMBUDSMAN " . . . More than 1,500 students come to the Ombudsman with problems ranging from grade disputes to registration bars. " " Bring us your beef if you have one! " pro- claimed the unofficial slogan of the Om- budsman Outreach Committee. Kimberley Mickelson, the University Ombudsman, described the committee as the " preventive arm " of the office. New to her office, Mickelson succeeded Deborah Stanton, who graduated from UT Law School in December 1982. The 10 members of the Outreach Committee undertook research for the prevention of student problems at The University. To prepare themselves to handle the responsibility of such research, commit- tee members trained for a weekend with the Ombudsman. They worked to develop their negotiating and interviewing skills so that they would be able to work more closely with students and advisers. More than 1,500 students come to the Ombudsman each year with problems rang- ing from grade disputes to registration bars. According to Mickelson, the complaints most commonly handled by the Om- budsman arose from University grading pro- cedures, which varied from one college to the next. Since policy did not require that professors distribute syllabi to their classes, the Ombudsman often found herself acting as a mediator for students confused about their professors ' expectations. Other pro- blems that Mickelson also faced regularly in- cluded dormitory contract disputes, registra- tion bars and scholastic probation policies. Mickelson became excited about writing a column for the Daily Texan as a student service. " Hopefully, the Ombudsman ' s col- umn will someday become regular. If the Texan likes it on a trial basis, we may be able to arrange for a weekly or biweekly col- umn, " Mickelson said. Established in 1969, the Ombudsman ' s of- fice ad ded staff, operating hours and addi- tional services as students became accus- tomed to utilizing the Ombudsman ' s powers of negotiation and advice. In 1969, the Om- budsman worked part-time and served ap- proximately 500 students. In 1983, the Om- budsman ' s office helped simplify life at The University of Texas for 1,500 students, more than ever before. by Christi Ball KB Iff At I iJmlbodi .:-- : .

" The election was over and the ballots were tabulated. UT ' s student government, named the Students ' Association, gained stu- dent approval on Oct. 6, 1982. The task of the first administration was clear: to lay the groundwork for a credible and vital body and thus ensure student government ' s enduring success. This foundation was laid by a committee system. Each committee consisted of ap- proximately five student senators. Commit- tee chairmen were chosen by SA President Paul Begala by application and interview. Each committee set specific goals and pro- jects to attain. University Policy and Academic Affairs, in conjunction with University Council and Senior Cabinet members, tackled issues like teacher evaluations, grading policies and minority recruitment. They also looked into The University ' s expansion policy in East Austin, available parking space and the lack of adequate childcare for students and facul- ty. Joe Salmons and Diane Friday chaired these committees. Trevor Pearlma n and Jim Smith jointly chaired the Student Services Committee, which kept tabs on how efficiently the Stu- dent Health Center and shuttle bus system used student funds this year. Students United for Rape Elimination, chaired by Meg Brooks, developed an escort service for students to feel more secure walking home at night on campus or in the West Campus area. Legislative and Citizen Affairs established a voter registration drive and lobbied the State Legislature on student issues like a pro- posed tuition increase. On April 6, 1983, more than 500 students jammed the House visitor ' s gallery to protest a bill calling for a rise in the drinking age from 19 to 21. Tom Dunlap chaired the Rules Commit- tee that revised the Students ' Association constitution and bylaws. David White was in charge of the Finance Committee, which ap- propriated funds from the $40,000 budget taken from student services fees. Consumer Affairs, chaired by Rebecca Rhyne, compil- ed a student housing guide and began a roommate search. The Communications Committee, under the direction of Margaret Ann Rose, handl- ed the SA ' s public relations. They designed the SA logo and produced Texan ads to publicize student government programs that affected UT students. by Robin Toubin FIRST ROW: Paul Edward Begala, Jon Curtis McNeil.

Students ' Association }19 UNIVERSITY COOPERATIVE SOCIETY " . . . The major issue for ' 82- ' 83 was whether or not to change the name of the University Co-op to University Bookstore. " " A lot of times students think the Co-op is overcharging for books, " said Martin Tor- res, student member of the University Cooperative Society. " That ' s just not the case. They wouldn ' t do that because their purpose is to serve the students and faculty. " The Co-op carried textbooks for all courses at UT. Once class enrollments were estimated, UT professors submitted lists of their required textbooks and ordered them in time for the beginning of classes. " Most university bookstores aren ' t finan- cially sound enough to run on their own so they are university-owned, " said Roy Har- ris, chairman of the University Cooperative Society. He added, " The University Co-op is still running strongly independently. " Ac- cording to Harris, if the Co-op ever failed to function as a bookstore, the remaining assets would be turned over to the regents of UT, as stated in the store charter. The Co-op ' s success in large part was due to its organization and efficient manage- ment. Partly responsible for this success was a 10-member panel called the University Cooperative Society. This board had four UT students elected by students: Walden Swanson, graduate student in economics; Cindy Lou Swope, student in the School of Nursing; Michael Owens, College of Business Administration; and Martin Torres, student in communications. The four faculty members, who were chosen by the UT Faculty Senate, were Robert Hamilton, pro- fessor of law; Charles Clark, professor of statistics; Robert Witt, chairman of the Department of Marketing, and Thomas Griffy, chairman of the Department of Physics. There were also two employees of the Co-op on the board: manager Jerry Mat- thews, professor in UT Department of Management. He was responsible for setting personnel, wage and inventory policies, and for hiring and firing employees. The Co-op Society ' s board meetings were held once a month at the Faculty Center on the corner of Guadalupe and 25th streets. Budget, employee or managerial problems were discussed at the meetings. The major issue for ' 82- ' 83 was whether or not to change the name of the University Co-op to University Bookstore. Since the primary function of the bookstore was to supply students with textbooks, the name Universi- ty Bookstore would focus on this point. However, in keeping with an old tradition, the board decided not to change the name leaving it University Co-op. The meetings were open to students and faculty, but few attended. In executive sessions the meeting was limited to board members. Linking the Co-op to The University was chairman of the board, Roy Harris from UT ' s Department of Management. Harris ' s primary job was to give reports on the finan- cial status of the Co-op at the board meetings. Being the financial supervisor, Harris recommended to the board the amount of rebate the Co-op gave back to the students at the end of the year. University Professor Battle founded the store in 1896 in the basement of the Main Building. Then as now the Co-op served the students and faculty as a non-profit organization. Although no profit is made in the textbook department, any profit from the card, candy, novelty or any other depart- ment is returned to students at the end of the year as a percentage of the total receipts each student possesses. The percentage varied according to the Co-op ' s profit. Legally, the Co-op was not obligated to re- fund anything, but did so as a service. The University Co-op bookstore had no individual owner. The owner of the store was the board of directors of the University Cooperative Society, which was elected by the students and faculty of The University. Therefore, the Co-op was owned by the students and faculty of UT indirectly. For 87 years the University Co-op has simplified the complicated business of buy- ing textbooks for thousands of people in the UT community. As Roy Harris said, " You can ' t have a first-class University without a first-class bookstore. And you can ' t have a first-class book without a first-class Univer- sity.

' " The Senior Cabinet ' s fundamental charge, according to chairperson Julie Tindall, was " to allocate and administer our portion of the Student Services Fee to each school " on the campus. The Cabinet was composed of 17 college and school council presidents, in- cluding all graduate and law programs at UT. The Senior Cabinet was allotted $35,000 of the Student Services Fee during the 82-83 school term. This amount was only 2 percent of the total fee over which students had direct control. The Senior Cabinet decided how, where and why this money was spent. Although the Cabinet ' s duty was to ad- minister a portion of the Student Services Fee, it participated in many programs. There were three specific projects that the Cabinet worked on. The publication of the Student Guide to Course Instructors, the familiar orange booklet found in college advising locations during pre-registration, was one of their projects. The Guide was a reference book that aided students in selecting the " right " professor. Another project the Cabinet handled was the Texas Excellence Teaching Awards. These were sponsored by the Ex-Students ' Association and were " unique because they were chosen solely by students, " said Tin- dall. The Cabinet helped solicit nominations for the 14 $1,000 awards that were given. Each council president selected a committee to review and make choices. Choosing students to represent UT in Who ' s Who Among Students in American Col- leges and Universities was another Senior Cabinet responsibility. Council presidents and faculty members rated prospective students on academic excellence, leadership, service and future potential. Up to 50 students could be selected each year. The Senior Cabinet also tried to enhance the " excellence " of The University. Tindall said that the body was not structured to con- stantly develop programs, but was con- cerned primarily with good teaching and providing a beneficial environment for learn- ing. According to Tindall, it was the Senior Cabinet ' s aim to promote " a climate of friendliness and respect between faculty and students in colleges.

Since 1927, CBA Student Council has provided students with programs, information and a voice in their college. " " This CBA Centennial Week promises to be the best and biggest The University has ever seen, " John Danielson, chairman of the Council of Business Administration said. During Centennial Week the council ' s theme was " Business: Past, Present and Future. " During the week of Feb. 28-March 4, four seminars developed this theme: " The Role of Women in Business, " " The Petroleum Industry: Boom or Gloom, " and " The Banking Industry in Texas: What is its Future? " The climax of the CBA ' s Centen- nial Week came March 4 when Charles Kallestad, president and chairman of the board of Kallestad Labs, delivered the keynote address. Since 1927, CBA Student Council has pro- vided students with programs, information and a voice in their college. CBA sponsored several pre-business seminars and a " How to Pick a Major " workshop. Through " Spend a Day With an Executive " program, juniors and seniors paired up with executives from IBM, Texas Commerce Bank, Deliotte and Haskins and Sells.

Students and faculty could get acquainted through ' Donuts with the Dean ' and fireside chats by UT professors. 1 Culminating all the year ' s efforts into one week, the Communication Council spon- sored Communication Week, April 18-23. Distinguished keynote speakers, depart- mental exhibits and an honors day made Communication Week " the best it had been in years, " said President Eleanor Waddell. Opening Communication Week was the Honors Day Program on April 16 for the college ' s scholarship recipients and their parents. Washington correspondent for the Wall Street Journal Karen Elliot-House was the keynote speaker. Other speakers during the week were: Leonard Maltin from Enter- tainment Tonight; Frazier Purdy, senior vice president of Young and Rubicam; Dr. John Miller from the University of Wisconsin; and Lyle Denniston, the Supreme Court reporter for the Baltimore Sun. Closing the week was a faculty student mixer in the Texas Union Quadrangle Room. At Parents ' Day April 23 the council presented the DeWitt Carter Reddick Award to Joe M. Dealy, chairman of the board of A. H. Belo Corp. and former publisher of the Dallas Morning News. Dealy was the ninth recipient of the award since 1974, when Walter Cronkite was selected. While most of their work this year was aimed at Communication Week, the council sponsored other activities. Students and faculty could get acquainted through " Donuts with the Dean " and fireside chats by UT professors that took place on the Communication Building ' s patio. At these mixers students and faculty had time to discuss various issues in communications. A TV trivia quiz in November was a suc- cess. Working with the Ideas and Interaction Committee of the Texas Union, the council sponsored a " spelling bee " hosted by Austin TV anchors Tim Ross and Kate Kelly. The council made money by using the college ' s logo created by graphic designer and associate professor of journalism Bill Korbus. The logo was stamped on T-shirts, glasses, belt buckles and backpacks. The Communicator, the college ' s newslet- ter, was published four times and covered events within the college and its organiza- tions. Articles on the college ' s budget cuts and new professors were featured. 324 Communication Council FIRST ROW: Stacy Lynn Sperling, Sheila Wilk, Paula Faye Dombrow, Sheldon Evan Good, Janet Ellen Brochstein.

Composed of ap- proximately 25 students, the council was dedicated to enhancing students ' educa- tional experiences and their professional development. " The main thing the Educa- tion Council wants to do is help the students, " President Jana Ferguson said. The Education Council kept students up- to-date on changes taking place in the education field at the University, and on the state and national level. Students were in- formed via newsletters, meetings and bulletin boards. Stricter standards were imposed on educa- tion majors and the Education Council helped relay these changes to students. Within the college, curriculum mandates from the dean ' s office brought changes in degree plans. The National Council of Ac- creditation of Teacher Education evaluated the new program and made recommenda- tions. Education majors should take five method courses instead of the three current- ly required, the report said. Another report prepared at The University by the Vick Committee which adjusted curriculum for all UT colleges required education majors to take an upper-division writing course in their junior year, although that conflicted with their student teaching. Vick Committee also imposed a foreign language requirement for education majors. On the state level, new teachers faced restrictions in obtaining certification. By 1986, UT graduates must meet Texas Educa- tion Agency ' s new mandates. The Council focused on familiarizing students on education issues, in addition to engaging in such outside events as the Centennial celebration, the return of student government, and their own statewide and national election on Nov. 2. Ferguson said the council ' s main interest was aligning the various educational groups. To help close the distance between the groups, the council began publishing a bi- monthly newsletter, which informed educa- tion students about upcoming organiza- tional activities. Ferguson believed getting groups to cooperate would eventually strengthen the whole education program. The newsletter ' s first edition had a survey to solicit student opinions about activities that would interest them. The survey also asked students to specify convenient times to hold symposiums and workshops. April was Education Month and the council sponsored activities to aid students. Among them was a panel discussion con- sisting of professors and deans from the Col- lege of Education. Education majors who came to the discussion received first-hand information on the college. Also in April a wine and cheese party recognized members of the College of Education Honor Society. As part of the Centennial celebration the council in concurrence with the Student Leadership Reunion planned a reception for past UT leaders. Both alumni and students were invited to this reception. To honor distinguished professors, the Education Council sponsored the Texas Ex- cellence Teaching Award. The council presented the award to an outstanding pro- fessor and a student teacher, who were selected by a committee. This committee in- terviewed and selected the winners for their work and dedication. by Kathy Jones FIRST ROW: Mary Elizabeth Aniol, Helaine Frances Englander, Marilyn Inez Adje- mian, Debra Fay Frankel, Maria Elena Gutierrez, Judi Lynn Wallace, Jana Elizabeth Ferguson, Terri Elizabeth Spriggs, Thomas McKinnley Koog Jr., Allison Good, Charlotte Lynn Hengst.

Education Council 325 LIBERAL ARTS COUNCIL " . . . from physics to foreign affairs, LAC hosted lectures and brown bags by professors and professionals. " " Instead of talk, we ' re committed to academics, " said Beverly Reeves, president of the Liberal Arts Council. " Our main em- phasis is toward academics and promoting quality education. " The Council sponsored an Electives Expo once a semester just before preregistration. The expo showed the electives available in the arts and other departments, and also reminded University students that they really could take the so-called basket weaving course or delve into Hegel ' s " Infinite Spirit. " Giving students a chance to discuss cur- rent topics from physics to foreign affairs, LAC hosted lectures and brown bag lunches by professors and professionals respected in their field. After visiting Nicaragua three times in 1982-83, associate professor of economics Michael Conroy spoke on the " reality warp " in Nicaragua. Nobel prize winner and LIT regental professor of physics Steven Weinberg unraveled a mystifying, mathematical dilemma in his Feb. 9 talk, " In Search Of Symmetry. " LAC showed their commitment to academics in their fundraising for scholar- ships. At their West Mall dunking booth April 5, government Professor James D. Austin and liberal arts Dean Robert King were among the faculty members who sub- jected themselves to the mercy of eager stu- dent patrons. This money backed a $200 scholarship fund to recognize two outstand- ing undergraduate scholars in the college. LAC also recognized teaching excellence at an appreciation dinner on April 25. This dinner honored faculty members who had worked with the council during the year. The council ' s presentation of the Ex- Students ' Association Teaching Excellence Award topped off the evening. Through its " Career Expo, " LAC showed career options available to liberal arts ma- jors. The expo was Feb. 28-March 3 in the Texas Union Sinclair Suite, and included representatives from government, publishing and retail management. Among the speakers was retiring dean of the LBJ School Elspeth Rostow; managing editor of Third Coast David Stansbury, and Texas Monthly publisher Michael Levy. The only literary magazine on campus, Analecta, was published by this council. Stu- dent volunteers did the magazine ' s writing, artwork and editing. The 180-page March issue of Analecta featured UT students ' stories and poetry. In addition, The L.A. Times was a monthly college newsletter that had articles on the council and college hap- penings. by Michele Lehman FIRST ROW: Shessy Sara Thomas, Jane Hathaway, Paul Edward Begala, Melinda Baldwin McFarland, Beverly Gayle Reeves, Rebecca Teresa Cabaza, Carolyn Ruth Myrah, Laura Elizabeth Fisher.

' ' We tried to keep the students informed about what was happening in the college, ' said Sarah Kim, president. " , ' In their effort to educate and involve students, the Natural Sciences Council hosted such activities as faculty mixers and graduate school seminars. " We tried to keep the students informed about what was hap- pening in the college, " said Sarah Kim, president. NSC sponsored graduate school seminars for graduating seniors. Graduate students and faculty advisers from the College of Natural Sciences spoke at the programs. NSC also hosted Beer Busts in the spring and fall for students and faculty to mix and converse on the happenings in the natural science field. Held throughout the year, these mixers were in the Texas Union. As students continued to flock to com- puter science courses, the council tried to tackle the problem of overcrowded classes. Sponsoring a forum at the end of the spring semester, the council investigated the reason for the lack of computer science classes. FIRST ROW: Micheal Scott Millet, Hediliza Otda Parafina.

They also took steps toward establishing a bachelor of science degree in computer science. The council cancelled the Tech Fair this year because such problems as a " stale " economy and financial cutbacks led to low recruitment by engineering firms. The coun- cil, however, planned to revive the fair next year during the 1983 fall semester. A unique aspect of NSC was they were the only college council with two non- voting student representatives on Course and Curriculum Committee. This committee, composed of student and faculty represen- tatives, reviewed degree requirements, new classes and academic policies for the College of Natural Sciences. What made student representatives a very important aspect of the committee ' s work was that student input was reviewed and considered before faculty members made their final decision. The Catalyst, the council ' s publication, in- formed students on what was happening in the college, what honors students and facul- ty had received and upcoming events. The Catalyst was the main current of com- munication for students and faculty. Natural Sciences Week, April 11-16, had a slate full of speakers and films. Among the keynote speakers were: L.Joe Berry, UT pro- fessor of microbiology, who recently became a member of the American Society of Microbiologists; Marye Anne Fox, UT associate professor of chemistry; Frank Bash, UT professor of astronomy; and Neal Evans, UT associate professor of astronomy who taught a class on extraterrestrial life. The week ' s highlight was the council ' s presentation of its teaching awards at an April 16 banquet in the Texas Union Ballroom. Prior to the Honors Day Program, the council presented two teaching awards and a $1,000 Ex-Students ' Association Teaching Excellence Award to outstanding faculty members in the College of Natural Sciences. Dr. James Vick, assistant dean of the College of Natural Sciences and UT pro- fessor of mathematics, was presented the Ex-Students ' Award. The council ' s active year was testimony to its dedication. " We did the best that we could do and we used all the student input we had, " said Kim. by Michele Lehman Natural Sciences Council 327 PHARMACY COUNCIL " . . . The Pharmacy Council enhanced the practical side of their field with projects like the cancer center . . . " Cancer just the mention of the word brings to mind the horrors of chemotherapy and radiation with continuous nausea or the loss of hair. However, the disease is not as fatal as it is believed to be. The probability of contracting a terminal form of cancer depends upon many factors such as age, eating habits, family history, physical factors and whether the person smokes or not. In the fall, hundreds of people in the Bar- ton Springs Mall area had personal data punched into a computer at the Cancer Screen sponsored by the Community Outreach Committee, a subcommittee of the Pharmacy Council. The computer digested the data, momentarily searched its circuits, then posted an individual ' s probability of getting cancer on the screen. While students manned the computers, registered phar- macists advised shoppers how they could decrease the odds of getting cancer. The same committee also set up several blood pressure screening booths around campus and at Highland and Northcross Malls where blood pressure screenings were taken free of charge. These blood pressure readings served as helpful sources of infor- mation to the patrons as a warning or relief concerning their health. The Pharmacy Council consisted of representatives from each of the Pharmacy School ' s organizations: Kappa Psi (all-male professional service organization), Kappa Epsilon (all-female professional service organization), Phi Delta Chi (co-ed profes- sional service organization), Rho Chi (academic organization), Longhorn Phar- macy Association (student branch of the American Pharmacist ' s Association) and the Minority Association of Pharmacy Students. Each semester students selected one or two candidates from their respective groups to represent them in the Council. On April 15, the Pharmacy Council par- ticipated in the UT Health Fair held on the West Mall. The group manned a Drug In- teraction Information Booth which gave general information to the public about commonly-used household and over-the- counter drugs. Students were informed, for example, that Tetracycline should not be used by pregnant women or young children who do not have their permanent teeth, as it stains those not yet grown. Before the coun- cil made decisions about future activities and services, Council President Noel Oliveira presented them to Kathy Griffis, who worked with the group as their adviser. After advising the council on the feasibility of projected plans or ideas. Griffis then presented them to James T. Doluisio, dean of the College of Pharmacy. Supporting the Council ' s service projects and other ac- tivities, Doluisio believed that pharmacy students should experience by doing. The Council enhanced the practical side of their field with projects like the cancer center and blood pressure screening booths. " If the future of pharmacy depends on the quality of people on the Pharmacy Council now, " said Noel Oliveira, " it looks very promising.

' to disseminate information about the college and the profession, and to plan and coordinate activities . . . ' When construction began on the Taylor " T " Room in 1952, the Student Engineering Council was just beginning to organize. The student engineers had united to press for a student lounge for Taylor Hall, located on 24th and Speedway streets. With building charter in hand, the engineering students constructed their own lounge and study hall beneath Taylor Hall. Current SEC president Robert Mechler said the excavation project was nicknamed " Operation Gopher. " Their 8,000-square foot room remains the only per- manent construction on campus built by University students. SEC included two representatives from each of the college ' s professional, honorary and minority student organizations. Two freshmen-at-large representatives also sat on the 45-member council. Mechler said that the main purpose of the SEC " was to disseminate information about the engineer- ing college and the profession, and to plan and coordinate activities for the college. " One such activity was the Engineering ex- position Oct. 20-21. this two-day event in- cluded technological displays on computers and jetfighters by IBM and McDonell Douglas. The council invited these corpora- tions ' representatives to inform students of their ongoing projects and what they were looking for in employees. The SEC hosted the Engineers ' Ball, reportedly (according to the council) the last remaining college-wide dance at UT. Ap- proximately 200 people attended the Nov. 13 dance at the Sheraton Crest Inn. An offshoot of the Engineering Council was the Order of Alec, established in the spring of 1982. The Order strived to keep its engineering traditions, history and sentimen- tal songs alive. Its primary concern was the preservation of the first shovel of dirt from the " T " Room back in 1952. Paintings of T. U. Taylor, the first dean of engineering, and anatomical parts of a previously lost statue of Alec, patron saint of engineering, were also hoped to be retained. In 1902, the engineers fabricated an imaginary engineer and named their mascot Alec after Alex- ander Frederick Claire, a character praised in the song " Hi Ho Balls, " brought by Edward Connor to The University in 1902. A five- foot statue spotted by the student engineers of 1908 in Jacoby ' s Beer Garden appeared to embody Alec perfectly. These students bor- rowed the statue and praised it as saint of engineering. However, in 1916, University of Texas law students accused the engineers of stealing Alec. Later, the law students went back to Jacoby ' s, bought the statue and presented the bill of sale to the engineers. The students had to give the statue to the lawyers who then put Alec in the city jail. In 1916, T. U. Taylor, the dean then, contacted Gov. James Ferguson and received a pardon for Alec. In 1972, the statue was placed in the Richard W. McKinney Engineering Library where it remains in " protective custody. " by Traci Graves FIRST ROW: Robert Carl Mechler.

Student Engineering Council 329 ORIENTATION ADVISERS " . . . As Mr. Ragle so aptly put it, Tor someone new here, this is it. It ' s a whole new learning experience. ' " The student orientation program which began in the early 1960s as a volunteer organization of the student staff has grown immensely. To serve as an orientation ad- viser in 1982, a student had to first attend a group interview with four to five other ap- plicants. As a group, they worked together to solve a problem presented to them. Observers judged each person ' s communica- tion skills. The judges, a Dean of Students office staff member, a former adviser, and a member of the Student Committee on Orientation Procedures (SCOOP) then gave their results to SCOOP and the orientation staff who decided the finalists. The Student Com mittee on Orientation Procedures was a steering committee of 10 selected by previous SCOOP members to serve as volunteers for the program. They designed and presented training sessions for the advisers and developed the programs used at summer orientation. Advisers had to attend workshops and an educational psychology class. These helped prepare them for their summer orientation duties by polishing their public speaking skills, developing their ability to work together and informing them of the academic requirements of individual schools at UT which aided them in pre-advising. Advisers aided in the pre-registration for fall classes, pre-advised in particular aca- demic areas, hosted a program that informed worried parents of student services and academic life, conducted tours of campus and the Union, and answered questions. Their importance to confused and frustrated freshmen and transfers was evident. When asked his opinion of the advisers ' performance, Ragle said, " Really outstand- ing. The program wouldn ' t run without them. They set high standards for themselves to give accurate information. " In the summer of 1982, SCOOP developed a catchy slogan for the program " THIS IS IT. ORIENTATION. THE REAL THING. " Lyrics were set to this Coca-Cola jingle and used as a theme song for all orientation sessions last summer. As Ragle so aptly put it, " For someone new here, this is it. " by Traci Graves : . ' : .

' No dormitory should be isolated. Each residence hall should be considered part of a system Park said. " " This organization should serve as a go- between for University dormitor y residents interested in meeting others, " said Doug Park, president of the University Residence Hall Association. In its third year, the URHA established a reputation as an effec- tive liaison between " the administration and the residents themselves, " according to Park. URHA was the only campus organization that had representatives from all University dormitories. While it represented more than 5,000 dormitory residents, the URHA at- tempted to increase communication among the 11 residence halls. Since few campuswide functions had been planned for dormitory residents, URHA tried to encourage new friendships. Approximately 30 represen- tatives of the organization met every other week to plan cross-campus jogs and parties. In the fall URHA sent four represen- tatives to the annual Texas Residence Hall Association Conference in College Station. Park said it was " a good learning experience for us. It ' s impressive what other universities ' dormitories have accomplished. " At the con- ference URHA heard about Texas Tech University whose URHA had an annual budget of more than $70,000. Tech ' s budg et came totally from fundraising activities. In addition, video game arcades were set up in each Tech dorm, according to Park. " As we become more active we ' d like to learn to provide recreational opportunities for the dormitories while turning a profit for par- ties, " Park said. " That ' s what we can learn from attending URHA conferences. " The Association foresaw fall 1983 as a " turning point, " as they planned an exhibi- tion: " Resident Halls Past, Presdent and Future. " The displays in University dorms were meant to attract attention to the organization. Also a spring banquet recognized outstanding representatives. Most of all, the URHA tried to bring University Residence Halls together. " No dormitory should be isolated. Each residence hall should be considered part of a system, " Park said. by Christi Ball FIRST ROW: Douglas W. Park, Cheryl Rae Stein, Judy Myers, Joyce Diane Inman, Randall Scott Studdard, Stephen L.

Women students get ' the best deal at UT by taking part in important decision-making with other women. " Many people expect to have everything handed to them on a silver platter. Such was not the case for the students living in the University Women ' s Coopera tives at 2610 Whitis who had a developed sense of responsibility and independence. Twelve women kept the co-ops operating smoothly by working at least 20 hours a week. The co-ops were home for all women students from freshmen to graduates. As long as they did chores like cooking, clean- ing or taking out the garbage, the women could stay. In return they got a warm, friend- ly, economical home. House managers, past residents and full- time students, collected rent, paid utility bills, supervised menu planning within the allotted budget and handled home repairs. Veterans also organized house meetings to discuss house business. The managers held a courtyard " get acquainted " barbecue at the beginning of the school year. In October their first annual chili cook-off celebrated National Co-op Month. To mark the UT Centennial, the co-op participated in the Student Leader Reunion April 9. At a buffet Dorothy Gebauer, Dean of Women who started Women ' s Co-ops in 1936; Margaret Peck, former Dean of Women; Jane Halstead, the first Co-op house manager; and Almetris Duren, who helped desegregate UT housing, spoke on the history of UT Women ' s Co-ops. Once residents interested in becoming house managers served as manager for a week, each house held elections at the year ' s end. In return for their work, managers received free room and board. Managers had the expert guidance of Frances Ferguson, coordinator of Women ' s Co-ops. Ferguson kept them aware of budget limits and han- dled the Co-ops ' paperwork. " At $184 a month for older, partially air-conditioned rooms, and $207 for newer, fully air- conditioned rooms, the Women ' s Co-ops are the most economical housing for students in Austin, " Ferguson said.

What do you do when you and 2,800 other people have nothing to do? You have a party! That ' s what the Jester Student Assembly sponsored for Jester residents the weekend before the fall semester began. The annual Courtyard Dance held in the Jester courtyard welcomed students back to The University. The exciting music and lights were provided by Deja Vu, an Austin band. The Jester Student Assembly was a stu- dent dormitory government which pro- grammed various activities for residents and served as a liaison between the residents and staff. " Everyone who lives in Jester is con- sidered to be in JSA, but the elected representatives just serve as coordinators, " said Melanie Kroll, president of JSA. JSA was broken down into four subcom- mittees which planned and executed various activities throughout the year. In October, the Multi-Cultural Committee offered free bus rides to the Texas Renaissance Festival in Magnolia, near Houston. Many students enjoyed the chance to experience the Elizabethan life: minstrels, jousts, music and crowds. The Housing and Food Committee found through a survey that residents prefer- red whole milk over chocolate and skim. On weekends, the Film Committee members could be found trying to usher in students who came to view the free movies provided by the Assembly. " Caddyshack " and " Young Frankenstein, " for example. But if the films were not enough, the JSA sponsored other parties and activities. Dur- ing the fall semester people could be found attired in bathing trunks, ski masks and down jackets, and costumes representing their favorite decade for the Beach Party, Ski Party and Flashback party. The week before the Texas A M football game, an " Aggies Joke Night Contest " was held on the first floor of Jester West. The first weekend in March, Jester residents were kept partying by the big turnouts of the second annual Talent Show and Casino Night. With everything from the theme parties to the usual study breaks given during midterms and finals, the JSA had an eventful year. They provided Jester residents with pleasant diversions that could rejuvenate them for another stint with the books. " I ' ve enjoyed this year, " Kroll said. " It ' s been the best.

RAs strived to provide an atmosphere conducive to both academic and social development for 714 residents. 1 Who had the best looking legs at the Castilian? This question was put to a vote in December when 13 anonymous male residents of the off-campus residence hall competed in the " Legs Contest. " Each con- testant was photographed from the waist down. Residents voted by donating money to the best looking pair of legs. Proceeds from the " Legs Contest " were donated to needy families through Blue Santa, a project operated by the Austin Police Department. As active participants in the University community since 1967, the Castilian RAs strived to provide an atmosphere conducive to both academic and social development for as many as 714 residents. The Castilian provided its residents with a convenient location and a caring environment. While the atmosphere at the Castilian was less than paternalistic, residents continued to feel that someone cared. The combination of freedom and concern provided many residents with a springboard for in- dependence. Eleven resident assistants were employed by the Castilian to organize parties and other activities in addition to serving as a campus information source. The 22 floors of the Castilian provided dining and recrea- tional facilities, living quarters and covered parking for the residents. Residents of the Castilian lived on one of 11 coed floors, each floor was equipped with a television lounge for the residents ' pleasure and convenience. Seasonal parties sponsored by the Castilian provided opportunities for residents to meet one another. The Castilian ' s largest and most dynamic social event was Casino Night. In March, residents and their paying guests tried their luck at blackjack, poker, roulette, craps and chuck- a-luck. Live entertainment from musicians, belly dancers and magicians provided a live- ly Vegas atmosphere. After the tables closed, residents spent their winnings bidding for gifts up for auction. by Ann McCoy FIRST ROW: Elizabeth Marie Monroe, Natalie Dreymala, Ulonda Evette Shaw, Alan Frederick Larkin, Claire Valerie Christy.

Events consisted of study breaks, birthday parties, a talent show, and a tree decorating party at Christmas time. 1 " What I like most about being an adviser is contributing to the homeyness of Blanton Dormitory, " adviser Donna Zinke said. The home-like atmosphere was a quality that Blanton ' s residents found most appeal- ing. But who was responsible for initiating and maintaining that atmosphere? Chair- woman Julie Cox explained that " the ad- visers played a large role in welcoming and helping new residents. " To introduce newcomers to the dorm and to other residents, Blanton advisers spon- sored a number of activities. Events con- sisted of study breaks, birthday parties, a talent show and a tree-decorating party at Christmas time. The advisers even sponsored a " Come-as-your-roommate party! " Mixers with various men ' s dormitories also filled the Blanton girls ' calendars. Christmas caroling, eating out, frequen- ting Water Works hot tub rentals, and celebrating were favorite pastimes. " Advising requires a lot of hard work, but working with my friends is very enjoyable, " said Jennifer Giles, an adviser. The hard work of which Giles spoke were various fundraisers for big events. In spite of the tedious Texan paperstuffs, candy sales and T-shirt sales, the advisers remained cheerful as they strengthened their friendships. " Starry, Starry Night, " Blanton ' s semi- formal, was the biggest adviser-sponsored event of the year. In keeping with the party ' s theme, the Texas Federation of Women ' s Club was decorated with flowers, candles, plants and celestial facsimiles. As all good things must come to an end, the Blanton advisers ended their year by tap- ping in new advisers for 1983. Old and new advisers camped out at McKinney Falls, near Austin, building campfires and roasting marshmallows. As the new advisers became acquainted with each other, the advisers of 1982 said " adieu " to a busy but fun-filled year. by Monique Bordelon " . ; FIRST ROW: Lori Ann Goodley, Elizabeth Ann Ussery, Edith Ann Surtees, Eva Rosannc A velar, Julie Marie Cox.

" Being the first women ' s dorm to form a dorm government makes us better, " boasted the president of Carothers Dorm Govern- ment, Lisa Belli. The former Carothers Advisory Council transformed itself into a more efficient rul- ing body at the end of May 1982. As an ad- visory council, the leaders of the dorm " had done little more than make paper name tags for the residents ' doors, " Belli said. The Ad- visory Council had become a popularity con- test, but the government put an end to that. A constitution was drawn up by the Ad- visory Council members and elections were held. Girls were chosen not because of popularity, but because of their campaigns for the offices they sought. By modeling their new system after the men ' s dorms, Carothers was able to improve dorm life immensely. The residents of Carothers were given the right to help decide what did or did not go on in the dorm. They were encouraged to attend the government ' s meetings, during which they were allowed to voice their opinions, air complaints and make suggestions. " Our whole system is bet- ter organized due to the fact that our com- mittees, executives and residents now know exactly what to do in questioning situations because it is spelled out for them in our con- stitution, " Belli said. The officers of Carothers Dorm Government hoped to lead the way for other women ' s dormitories. The residents of Carothers spent many long hours on various fund-raising projects during the year. At Christmas the residents delivered " candygrams " to people, with a message of the sender ' s choice attached to a candy cane. One of the most memorable fund-raising activities they sponsored was a " paper stuff, " which involved spending the wee hours of the morning stuffing fliers into The Daily Texan. Although the residents spent a lot of time working, they also found time to play and make new friends. For example, they ex- changed " tuck-ins " with residents of the men ' s dorms. " The guys from Prather Dorm would come over to Carothers one night and tuck all of us into bed and then the next night we would go to Prather and tuck them in, " Belli explained. They had " loads of fun " and also formed a friendship between the residents of the two dorms. In the spring Carothers hosted an honors dinner. At this event, the residents who had received scholarships or excelled in any way in any event throughout the year received special recognition from the head resident, residents and administration of Carothers. At the end of the 1983 school year, thej residents of Carothers reaped the benefits OB their industrious year. All of the money thafl they had made through fund-raising ac-j tivities had been saved for the special evenn of the year a party, otherwise known as the Spring Extravaganza. The Extravaganza was held in the spacious courtyard I Carothers. They decorated the courtyarc festively with a web of Christmas lights anc many colored balloons. Ed Volkman, a dis jockey from K-98, was there to add life td the party with music. The Spring Ex-) travaganza was a perfect ending to an even better year. by Kathy Jones 540 Carothers Dorm Government KINSOLVING ADVISERS KINSOLVING NORTH: FIRST ROW: Susan Marie Byanski, Caroline Lenoir Cozort, Alice Arleen Arechiga, Jo Dale Carothers, Kimberly B.

Kuenstler said ... ' I could help them gain confidence about being in college. I let them know they were not alone. ' A student ' s first year in college can be ex- tremely frustrating with money manage- ment, academics, finding a place to live and various other new responsibilities. But, if you were one of the few freshman females fortunate enough to secure residency at the Littlefield Dormitory located on 26th Street and Whitis, counseling was available to you from the Littlefield advisers. These infor- mative, friendly and sympathetic soph- omores were the best friends the freshman residents had to help them " learn the ropes " around The University. Always available when they were needed, the advisers understood many problems freshmen faced since they themselves had experienced the same or similar problems only one year before homesickness, academic worries and social problems. Bernadine Kuenstler, chairwoman of the Littlefield advisers, said, " Having experienced many of the same academic and social problems, I really understood the girls ' viewpoints, and I could help them gain confidence about being in college. I let them know they were not alone. " More than problem solvers, the Littlefield advisers organized social activities to help the girls meet other students and make their first year a memorable one. One of the ac- tivities was a fall semi-formal dance held Dec. 3 in conjunction with Prather men ' s dormitory. In comfortable Christmas attire, students danced to popular music in the festively decorated Littlefield living room. Twenty-five elderly ladies from the Austin State School for the Mentally Retarded received Littlefield hospitality for Christmas when a party was held especially for them where Santa Claus dropped in to deliver gifts to each of them. On Feb. 24, the advisers held the annual Col. George Littlefield Birthday Party. Residents and advisers dressed formally for this special dinner of cold cuts and chicken. Each year the residents nominated 18 of their peers for dormitory advisers. The 18 girls with the most nominations had the op- tion to return for another year to live in the freshman dormitory providing they main- tained a 2.5 GPA. According to Kuestler, this was an honor since the advisers were considered by many to be the " backbone " of the whole dormitory. by Tracy Duncan V FIRST ROW: Lydia Marie Jacobson, Delia Bustamante, Suzanne Gamboa.

Later in the evening, Moore-Hill residents turned out to enjoy the annual Monster Bash party. Moore-Hill housed approximately 404 residents including 12 RAs and 12 governing officers. The Council was adept at planning recreational escapes for residents. The an- nual Tippy Hat and Show Me parties drew crowds, as did the four Burger Burns, popular fundraisers and mixer picnics. The Moore-Hill Olympics featured an egg toss, jalapeno-eating contest, tug-of-war and other events in which all floors competed. At Christmas, a group of residents visited the Whitestone nursing home for an evening of caroling and visiting with senior citizens.

" In honor of William Prather, Prather Dor- mitory benefactor, the residents had a festive week known as Wild Willie Week. Besides having a good time, they tried to spend the money they had raised during the year through dorm projects. These events includ- ed cleaning up Memorial Stadium after home football games, stuffing advertising supplements in The Daily Texan and charg- ing cover for their parties. During Wild Willie Week, the residents sponsored pizza parties and movies and hosted a variety of speakers, among them cartoonist Sam Hurt and Coach Fred Akers. The week ' s grand finale was Casino Night in Prather lobby. Prior to Wild Willie Week, officers of the Prather Dorm Government went to radio stations and restaurants to solicit prizes. When patrons entered the lob- by " casino " they received fake money to gamble away on games like blackjack, craps and roulette. At the night ' s end, prizes were auctioned off and patrons could buy them with their bogus bucks. by Kathy Jones PRATHER DORM GOVERNMENT: FIRST ROW: Terence Patrick Connell.

Besides burger burns and dorm dances, the council sponsored Casino Night and mixers ... " " We ' re different from other dorms. We distinguish ourselves, " said Fred Gore, presi- dent of the Simkins Dorm Council. " Our purpose is to make Simkins a better place to live, and we do that by promoting our mascot, the cockroach. We try to maintain our traditions. " For the past 26 years the Roach Olympix has honored the Simkins mascot. At the April 1983 Olympix, 190 Simkins residents were host to other University dorm residents. In the ancient Greek tradition, Gore said, " A masked guy in a diaper ran across the Simkins lawn with a torch and lit the flame symbolizing the beginning of the games. " Five nominees from women ' s residence halls were escorted across the dorm ' s front lawn, and the winner was crowned " roach sweetheart. " Games such as the egg toss and the carrot poke were popular in 1983; however participants prefer- red relay races like the izzy-dizzy in which coed team members compete by running around upright baseball bats until they became " very, very dizzy, " Gore said. In another relay, participants crawled along the ground blowing ping-pong balls. " The games really aren ' t very competitive, " Gore said. Simkins residents wore " roach-ods, " a takeoff on Izod knit shirts. The council ' s major interest was recrea- tion for residents. Besides " burger burns " and dorm dances, the council sponsored Casino Night and mixers at the dorm for freshman dorm residents. Casino Night " was a real winner, " said Gore. Streamers, balloons and playing cards covered the walls of the dimly-lit Simkins lobby. Gamblers were able to bid play money in games of roulette, craps and blackjack, while council members worked as dealers and " Roach Bunnies " from the women ' s residence halls assisted. Winners won such prizes as plants and meals at local restaurants. The populari- ty of Casino Night assured that it would re- main an annual event. " Many of our parties are done in conjunction with other dor- mitories, " Gore explained. " Also, we have participated in service projects, such as stadium cleanups and can drives.

" - William McGill, April 1Q, 1930 HE OPENING DECLARATION ISSUED BY WILLIAM MCGILL, PRESIDENT OF THE EX- STUDENTS ' ASSOCIATION, TYPIFIED THE UN- BRIDLED ENTHUSIASM SURROUNDING THE FIRST ROUND-UP CELEBRATION, WHICH WAS TO BECOME A FIXTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY. ACCORDING TO A TEXAN ARTICLE, IT WAS TO MARK " THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA IN THE successful existence of The University of Texas. " In its inception, Round-Up represented the first attempt at gathering and uniting all segments of University Life. Though the actual celebration occurred the weekend of April 11-13, 1930, laying the groundwork for the event began far in ad- vance. Rampant enthusiasm and excitement charged the campus, particularly surrounding the election of the " Sweetheart of Texas. " Photographs of each candidate were displayed in the Co-Op window, causing quite a stir; the Texan reported that " a heavy line of grease runs the entire length of the windows where the University boys have rested their heads wistfully, " smearing their hair oil. The Sweetheart election rally held in front of the Women ' s Gymnasium on the evening of March 29 peaked the curiosity of all co- eds as the final vote was tabulated and the winner announced. Voting privileges related directly to the price of the ticket students purchased for the weekend ' s festivities. Those with the 50 or 75 t ticket were allowed one vote each for Sweetheart. In a move that would make any good ol ' Texas politician proud, those purchasing the expensive $2 ticket were allotted five votes. Master of ceremonies for the sweetheart rally was Tiny Gooch, an ex-student and champion hog-caller from Ennis, Texas. At 10:00 p.m., Myrle Daunoy, a member of Alpha Delta Pi, was declared Sweetheart with 1,916 votes. Her highest honor would be representing The University in the " Round-Up Revue and Ball, " which would also feature the sweethearts of several other Southwest Conference schools. Meanwhile, final rehearsals continued for the two productions that would highlight the Round-Up weekend the " Round-Up Revue and Ball, " and " Through the Years at Texas. " Featuring a cast of 1,000, Texan ads claimed that " Through the Years " would be " The most remarkable production of its kind ever offered the people of Texas. " Friday, April 11, began with a Longhorn Band procession from 24th and Guadalupe to the new Gregory Gymnasium, where the official opening of Round-Up commenced. Members of the Texas Cowboys and Orange Jackets served as ushers at the celebration; Gov. Dan Moody spoke. Classes were dismissed from 11:00 to 1:00 to allow all students to join in the event, conforming to McGill ' s mandate that students " talk Round-up, think Round-Up, ROUND-UP: be in Round-Up. " Later that evening, the gymnasium stage was transformed into a dude ranch for the " Round-Up Revue. " The Texan commented that " Arizona, Wyoming and Texas ranches would frown with envy should they have been able to see the wealth of beauty and charm that was gathered on this one ranch. " After the presentation of Daunoy and the sweethearts from Texas A M, Rice, Baylor and Texas Christian University, the real 546 Special Interest Organizations UP DURING A ' 50S ROUND-UP, STUDENTS NOT COMPLYING TO THE WESTERN DRESS CODE SUFFERED THE CONSEQUENCES.

Highlights, according to a Texan article, were " a Mexican ballet . . . an Indian adagio number . . . and a Negro tap turn. " Afterwards, the audience was invited to stay and " Dance to the tuneful strains of Steve Gardner and his Hokum Kings. " After a full Saturday of Ex-Students ' Association functions a nd Dads and Mothers day luncheons, the undisputed pin- nacle of the weekend was experienced when " Through the Years at Texas " was presented. Spotlighting the history of The University, the pageant was divided into three parts " the prologue, " " The passing of the years, " and " The University at play. " " The Passing of the years " was climaxed by a World War I scene in which the University Cavalry Troop appeared. " The University at Play " featured scenes depicting students of the day. The Texan referred to " Through the Years " as " stupendous, " a " monster stage show, " and an event which produced " a shivery thrill up and down one ' s spine. " After the sun had set on that first Round- Up celebration, more than 700 guests had of- ficially registered at The University to join in the celebration. Reflecting on the event, McGill said that The University had " ... succeeded in bringing many members of our great family back home, succeeded in a com- munity effort that has caused them to know one another and to love one another the more; suc- ceeded in inaugurating a tradition that will go down through the years the Texas Round- Up. by Judy Ward Special Interest Organizations 347 SPIRIT TEXAS COWBOYS If EEPERS OF THE CANNON The good guy. s in the black hats The Texas cowboys of old could be found around the chuckwagon, which pro- vided chow for the round up crews on dusty trail rides. At The University of Texas in 1983, the Texas Cowboys enacted a different version of the old western scene. On April 8, the Cowboys participated in a Round-Up. During this time the Cowboys held their annual barbecue at the Texas Union. The Cowboys served approximately 2,500 people in three hours. The purpose of the barbecue was to raise money for the Austin Association for Retarded Citizens. Almost $5,000 was made from the affair. " That amount of money is not bad for one day ' s work, " said Jim Woodmansee, treasurer. Money raised from the Texas Cowboys Minstrels Show, another annual event, also went to AARC. The show, held at the Run- nin ' R Ranch on April 14, featured singer Jerry Jeff Walker as the special guest. The Minstrels Show, which originated in the ' 40s and provided a satirical view of campus life through skits and musical entertainment. It was not until 1970 that the format of the show changed from the Cowboys perform- ing to featuring top-rated entertainment. The Poke Open, a golf tournament spon- sored by the Cowboys, generated additional funds for the AARC as the group donated a percentage of the earnings they received from sponsors to the charity. In 1982, the Cowboys paid for more than half of the AARC ' s Community Training and Activity! Center, an ongoing project that they had! sponsored since 1962. " Now the CowboyJ donations would fund improvements on the building, " said Woodmans ee. The Cowboys also gave their time to help the AARC. On Sept. 18, Cowboys escorted] citizens to the Utah football game and in the spring they sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt. On April 16, the Cowboys sponsored one of their most recognized projects the Special Olympics. With contestants fron Central Texas, the Olympics was an all-day event filled with activities ranging from Softball throw to track events.

As in the scene from Richard Pryor ' s movie " Stir Crazy, " contestants in the " hard money " competition of the Silver Spurs ' Rodeo battled each other and a wild bull for a pouch of money tied to the bull ' s horns, winner take all. The proceeds from Bevo ' s Birthday rodeo, at the Sheriffs Posse Arena on Oct. 14-16, were donated to muscular dystrophy. Country and western singer Johnny Duncan entertained a crowd of 3,000. In addition to regular rodeo events, spectators were treated to the University Steer Ride. Organizations from campus, including Fijis and SAE ' s, entered 10 teams in the event which required each team member stay on the bull ' s back for a minimum of eight seconds. On April 23, 150 teams gathered at Auditorium Shores on Town Lake to par- ticipate in the Spurs ' annual chili cook-off. For those who were not involved in prepar- ing a special brand of chili, the Spurs offered a tobacco-spitting contest, egg toss, and music from Rusty Weir and Moe Bandy. Money collected from this event and the fall and spring semesters went to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In September, Silver Spur Andy Heinz traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada for the na- tionally televised Labor Day Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy to present Jerry Lewis with a check for the more than $25,000 that the organization raised.

Silver Spurs 351 SERVICE TEXAS WRANGLERS .QERVICE is THE REWARD Rounding up spirit is the key The Longhorn has long been a symbol of the independent Texas spirit, calling up vi- sions of long, dusty trail rides, the cattle that were driven and that special breed of men who drove them. In line with The Univer- sity ' s Centennial, the Texas Wranglers planned to erect a bronze statue of a longhorn in the East Mall culdesac. The Wranglers, in a joint effort with the Silver Spurs, raised money for the project by selling replicas of the statue for $2,000 each. The Austin community showed strong in- terest in the project; midway through the spring semester, 130 replicas had been sold. Although the Centennial Longhorn was the group ' s main concern, the Wranglers in- itiated several other projects and social ac- tivities. An ongoing project of the organiza- tion was the Capital Area Rehabilitation Center. The center served as a school for physically handicapped children. Because the school was privately operated, the Wranglers offered as much financial assistance as they could. The Wrangler foun- dation was set up with an initial grant of $25,000 to pay monthly supplements to the center. Members offered several Saturdays to serve as handymen for the center. The Wranglers also sponsored a team from the center for the area Special Olym- pics. The participants were rewarded with T-shirts and the entire school was treated to a pep rally conducted by the group to ignite spirit in the team. Children from the Texas School for the Blind also benefited from the Wranglers ' community service. " These kids live at the school, so they ' re deprived of normal paren- tal relationships, " Service Projects Chairman Jay Munisteri said. " The best thing we d for them is play and talk to them. They love 1 to play with you hours on end. They love to be invited places. " A Halloween party was also given for t children in conjunction with the Delta Gam mas. Each child was escorted through thi sorority house for trick-or-treating. In addition to the many service projects the Wranglers engaged in, time was still rollers u; reserved for social events.

' ::.A? I .:::OH -a Detain Lop A statue of a longhorn had been pro- posed several times in the past but had always been rejected by the Board of Regents for various reasons, including the fear of vandalism. For this reason the 1.5-ton bronze Centennial Longhorn measuring about nine feet from the bot- tom of the base to the top of its shoulder with a horn span of approximately eight :et, has been designed with special ' eatures to help prevent tampering. Its the part most likely to be broken off, was joined to one hind leg, and the horns were equipped with stainless steel ' rollers inside so that if someone tried to cut one off, the horn merely rolled off. The Wranglers also promised to keep a 24-hour vigil during the weekend of the Aggie game, considered a particularly dangerous time. Doug Jacobson and John Harkey present Vice President Ronald Brown a Centennial Longhorn replica.

" In con- trast, The University of Texas Posse did just the opposite they raised hell. One of the largest spirit and service organizations on campus with 120 members, the Posse claimed a cross section of Greeks and independents. Panhellenic and IFC sororities and fraternities each selected three members for Posse while independents oc- cupied 19 slots. While leadership and cam- pus participation were considered in the selection process, outstanding spirit was the quality most looked for in new members. Posse was a unique group because all members were second semester freshmen at the time they were tapped in. Instead of following a fall-spring academic schedule, Posse members served on a two-semester schedule, beginning their membership in the spring at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house and ending their tenure the following spring at the Sigma Alpha Mu house. The Posse followed the uncommon time schedule because during the fall, freshmen often pledged sororities or fraternities. John Siegel, Posse president, explained that this permit- ted the Greeks to select the most active and spirited members for the Posse. Best known for painting the store fronts along the Drag during football season, Scott Creel, 1983 pledge trainer, said that Posse also supported United Cerebral Palsy through various collection drives. Funds raised from their street parties on Oct. 7 and March 25 went to UCP. " We chose UCP because it was one of the charities not being supported by any other University organiza- tions, " said Creel. Commenting on the street parties, Creel said that they were " fun " but they did not generate the amount of funds that the Posse wished to contribute. Positioning themselves at busy intersections to solicit contributions, their annual " hold-up " netted a $2,400 con- tribution for UCP. In conjunction with the Silver Spurs, Posse participated in another " hold-up, " but this time for Muscular Dystrophy and the Austin Association for Retarded Citizens. The group also found time to socialize at mixers, although it was difficult for a group as large as Posse to party together. In the spring, Budweiser sponsored a mixer for Posse at their distributing plant. Schlitz sponsored another mixer on Oct. 6 at Nasty Habits. Each Posse member was allowed to invite two people outside the organization to their casual at the Westwood Country Club on Nov. 18. " The purpose of this was to let others get to know what Posse was all about, " Creel said. Entertainment for the get-together was provided by Wynnd, a popular local band. During the weekend of April 8-10, Posse joined the Spooks to participate in the Round-Up parade and carnival. Marching in the parade together, the two organizations joined forces in manning a pie throwing booth which gave Posse the opportunity to present themselves to incoming freshmen. Posse also distributed flyers and stickers publicizing the March 2 celebration, and pencils and pamphlets at the Texas Relays. 354 Posse i Posse members raise money for Cerebral Palsy at their spring street party while enjoying the music of the Condominiums and Jnnking beer provided by Coors The Posse ' s Centennial contribution in- cluded disseminating information about the Centennial Student Endowment Fellow Fund. At the Texas-Arkansas football game, Posse collected contributions to the fund outside Memorial Satdium. They also operated phone banks, calling students and encouraging them to " Check a dollar for a scholar. " " While our main interest was in the charity we supported, we helped participate in the Centennial fund drive because it was important to The University, so that made it important to us, " said Siegel. by Pat Vires Upholding tradition, Amy Williams and Risa Turken enjoy the benefits of free beer at the spring street party.

Posse 355 SPIRIT SPOOKS ROC m Weenies an OO-STING UT ATHLETICS Weenies and their ghoul friends scare up spirit In November 1941, a social organization composed of members from each sorority on campus was formed in response to groups such as Ownooch and Nu Upsilon Tau Tau, which limited their membership to two or three sororities. Outlasting those organizations that it had formed in protest of, Spooks went on to become one of the largest groups on campus. Originally, the membership was secret with members dressed in sheets sporting the skull and crossbones and ruby eyes. Meetings were held in dimly lit restaurants or in sorority houses. The group showed its enthusiasm for campus events by decorating for and attending athletic events and guard- ing the Aggie bonfire. In 1982-83, Spooks ' membership had in- creased to 95 freshmen and sophomore women who were interested in supporting UT. Spooks were best known for their ef- forts to boost all UT athletics. Some of their activities included painting storefronts along the Drag each Sunday preceeding a football game and decorating the players ' lockers and dining hall. During baseball season each woman became a secret pal to a baseball player and supported him throughout the season by decorating his locker and leaving notes and goodies. On April 12, the women revealed their identities to their baseball bud- dies at a mixer. Supporting University athletics was only one of the projects in which Spooks were in- volved. During the fall, they prepared " Care packages " full of goodies for the Longhorn Band ' s out of town trips. They aided APO with their blood drive by encouraging and supporting donors. They also manned poll- ing booths during school-wide elections such as Students Association and Daily Tex- an editor elections. In addition, the organiza- tion hosted Dads ' Day. Like most campus groups, Spooks con- tributed their time to the Texas In-| dependence Day ceremony and planne something special for the Centennial. March 2, the group released hundreds balloons in the air and held up t " Celebrate March 2 " banner. In accordan with the Centennial, former Spooks fr every decade since the group was forme were invited back to give speeches during Round-Up weekend, April 8-10.

Spooklets were required to meet every Fri- day morning at 7 a.m. for pledge training. Each pledge was assigned a big sister known as a Ghoul Friend. On each day of initiation week, Ghoul Friends presented their little sisters a gift. by DeAndra Logan Casperella, a doll, served as a mascot to Spooks. She was kidnapped and ran- somed by the Orange Jackets in 1962. Each year, Casperella was hidden in an unusual place on campus by the actives, and the pledge classes were required to find her. Once a week clues were pro- vided regarding her whereabouts. Clues got more specific each week that Casperella was not found. The pledge that found her was awarded a credit toward her service requirement. OFFICERS: FIRST ROW: Patricia Ann Harris, Patti Lynn Turman, Elizabeth Anne Mudd, Shari Nicole Kalmaln.

The girls spent all year gathering articles and other memorabilia to fill the pages of a scrapbook for graduating members of the football squad. The leather-bound books, provided by The University, documented each senior ' s final year as a Longhorn gridiron player. The group was formed in 1978 to serve as a spirit organization for graduating members of the football team. Although the hours were long and most ot the glory unrecogniz- ed, 400 girls turned in applications for 25 positions in 1982. The girls were chosen on the basis of interviews conducted by Angels President Nancy Adams and members of the Ex-Students ' Association. Many people misunderstand what the group ' s purpose was, said Jodi Williamson, vice president. " They think that we ' re out to get dates with the recruits, but what we are Senior Robert Brewer described the Angels in glowing terms. " They ' re a plus to the athletic department. No question about that. It ' s special that they take the time out to put together a scrap- book that will last a lifetime. It ' s a special, cherished memory. They really help in recruiting too, " Brewer said. trying to do is be a friend, so that the recruit can decide to attend UT and know that they ' ll have friends when they get there. " The Angels also served as hostesses before the home football games at the alum- ni center and acted as tour guides to pro- spective Longhorns during spring recruiting. The group ' s sponsor, Lynne Niemiec, said, " We look for outgoing people who are friendly and can think on their feet, so they can really help recruits who feel their lives ride on their decision to attend LIT. " In appreciation of their time and service, Coach Fred Akers presented each Angel with an orange jacket with their names and the slogan " A heavenly tradition " printed on the back. by DeAndra Logan FIRST ROW: Stacy Jean Rodgers, Ann Misayo Furuta, Bonnie Marion Prosser, Pamela Ann Wiley, Laura Elizabeth Simmons, Judy Kay Jones.

However, that was not to say they were deprived ot a turkey dinner. B evo ' s Babes, an organization dedicated to pro- viding spirit and support for the swim team, served a complete Thanksgiving dinner to the swimmers at the home ot Melissa Fuller- ton, Babes vice president. In December, the group shared a " family " Christmas at Jaime ' s Spanish Village by exchanging gag gifts among swimmers and Babes. Manually timing the meets by stop- watches in case ot computer failure was the most important of their activities par- ticularly the SWC meet. Other support in- cluded decorating the swimmers ' lockers, meeting the team at the airport after out-of- town meets and throwing victory parties. Party themes included a punk night and a Halloween costume ball complete with a pumpkin-carving contest. In September, more than 300 girls tried but in hopes ot joining the 12 veteran Bevo ' s Babes. The prospective members had to go through two interview sessions where they were judged on personality, enthusiasm. time commitments and general interest in swimming. Final selections were then made by the four officers: Gina Phillips, president: Melissa Fullerton, vice president; Hilde Moore, treasurer; Laura Wallrath, secretary; and the senior men swimmers. The Babes were also responsible for greeting recruits, handling public relations for the program and spirit activites for the women ' s teams. " We tried to unify the various men ' s and women ' s teams into a complete swim pro- gram, said Gina Phillips. by Ann Eby They couldn ' t go home for the holidays, hut the Longhorn swimmers did get a hearty meal thanks to Bevo ' s Babes.

The Longhorn Luvs, at the request of the athletic department, became the Texas Stars. " The name change was just part of the new program under Bob Weltlich, " said Marissa McKinney, Texas Stars ' president. She said the name was suggested by the basketball administration and it was a choice of either bringing back a past name or creating a new one. " It was believed that the Texas Stars were formerly an organization within the band, " added McKinney. The name of the group may have changed but their efforts to increase spirit for the struggling 1983 basketball team remained unchanged. " We want to show spirit for the team and our way of doing this is by danc- ing, " McKinney said. The women also performed pom-pon, jazz, novelty and character routines. The Stars entertained Longhorn basketball fans at the Frank Erwin Center during halftime. Besides their halftime appearances, the Stars ran out onto the court during time-outs urg- ing the crowd to show spirit. Jazz tunes as well as country and western sounds provided the aural backdrop for the Stars ' performances. The Stars ' activities extended beyond the FEC to the Reunion Arena in Dallas to in- clude a performance for the Dallas Mavericks. On Feb. 15, the Stars participated in a fashion show for Austin media per- sonalities. Sponsored by the Junior Forum, the show featured a western theme. The Stars entertained Kate Kelley and Ben Storey of KVUE Channel 24 and Cactus Pryor of KTBC Channel 7 among others with routines to " Texas Fight, " " March Grandiosa " and " Orange Blossom Special. " The Stars also held a one-day camp for drill teams on Jan. 22 at Crockett High School. During the camp the Stars split up into pairs to give tips on a particular type of routine.

However, when confronted with the in- evitable defeat, it is always nice to know there is someone who still supports you. Unlike other athletic teams at The Universi- ty, the men ' s tennis team had the support of a group of 50 women who cheered them through every game no matter what the out- come. Matchmates were the most active group of tennis supporters in the SWC. After interviewing 120 women who wanted to support the team, Coach David Snyder and his players selected 30 new members to accompany 20 Matchmates returning from 1981-82. Matchmates ap- peared at all the team ' s matches to keep score, call net and offer encouragement. The University allocated funds to the group which were used to purchase decora- tions for the players ' rooms and buy Gatorade and apples to distribute during practices. Matchmates composed playful songs for the team and telephoned or called on each player to sing them. When the team was preparing to travel to Corpus Christi, Matchmates used a Beach Boys tune, showing up at practice in shorts, Hawaiian shirts, bathing suits and sun glasses to sing for the team. At the begin- ning of the season, players were surprised when the Matchmates kidnapped them at 6:30 a.m. for breakfast at Cisco ' s Bakery. For all of the girls, Matchmates was a great experience because they became ac- quainted with the players and got involved with something besides school. " Match- mates is fun and a break from school, a chance to get away and get close to some great guys, " said Rita Nicastro, president. Michelle Travis met some of the players and decided to apply to become a Matchmate. After being selected as a Matchmate and participating in the group, she said " I love it, it ' s fun to do and makes you feel good. The guys are real appreciative of everything you do. I have met lots of people through it. " To conclude the year, the Matchmates treated the tennis team to dinner. Later, the group had dessert at Coach Snyder ' s home where they presented each player with a per- sonalized scrapbook filled with memories from the past season. by Risa Turken FIRST ROW: Dcnise R.

Matchmates 361 SERVICE Y EX-STUDENTS ' ASSOCIATION OU CAN ALWAYS GO BACK Once a Longhorn, always a Longhorn During the football season, mobs huddl- ed under the press box. The possessors of large amounts of orange and white parapher- nalia boasting the name " Texas, " they were a devoted bunch. They have been known to clap the loudest, sing the fight song with the most vigor and the alma mater with the en- thusiasm of eager freshmen. They hosted parties before and after each game, and followed their Longhorn team to out-of-town games. Throughout the year, they showed students that the active Univer- sity life does not have to end with gradua- tion. Beginning in 1885, the Ex-Students ' Association had been as much a part of The University as the Tower. Also known as the Texas Exes, ESA extended financial aid to students and promoted fellowship among friends and former students. " The main reason for the Ex-Students ' Association ' s being was to promote The University, " explained Ernestine Wheelock, ESA staffer and editor of the alumni magazine, Alcalde. " It provided money for scholarships and encouraged scholars to come to The University, " she added. The largest program sponsored through ESA concerned financial aid. 1983 marked the second year that five $10,000 Texas Ex- cellence Awards were given to outstanding high school graduates. Also in its second year was the presentation of the 14 Teaching Excellence Awards given to UT professors. Funded primarily through membership dues, ESA offered another $175,000 in various stu- dent financial aid throughout the year. The Texas Exes remained a diversified association, including 40,000 dues-paying members around the world. The state of Texas alone had 133 individual clubs. Advantages of Texas-Ex membership varied. Members qualified for everything from discounts on Texan subscriptions to season ticket priority for football games. Away from The University atmosphere, the " Flying Longhorns " ran several expedi- tions such as a " Jamaican Adventure, " " South African Trip " and even an " Orient Express Train Trip. " Guest lectures were scheduled by ESA throughout the year to cover pertinent issues from " The Eyes of Texas: A Look into the 300-inch new Texas Telescope Project " to " Time Management: Time for Your Life. " Ex-Students ' also sponsored Dads ' Day, the 25-year Class Reunion, the Half-Century Longhorns Reunion and a week-long sum- mer program, Alumni College. Centennial activities for the Texas Exes included a special Texas Independence Day celebration, Centennial Round-Up and Parade and a Centennial Honors Day on April 16. by Anne Eby Mayoral candidate Lowell Lebermann and UT Vice President William Livingston were among the guests at a reception for 14 Texas Excellence Teaching Award recipients on April 27 362 Ex-Student: ' Association SERVICE G STUDENT INVOLVEMENT COMMITTEE ET A PIECE OF THE ACTION Tilling a bumper crop of committee projects SIC, One of the major criticisms that students level against The University is that it is too big and that students get lost in the shuffle. The Student Involvement Committee sought to relieve that situation by connecting students to alumni through the school. The composed of representatives from 13 ampus organizations, 11 members-at-large and a student intern who worked at the Alumni Center, was divided into 10 subcom- mittees which ranged from Athletics to Round-Up. All of the subcommittees were open to any student who wished to join. One well-known SIC committee was the Washington Internship Program Committee. Each year UT and other major universities around the country each sent approximately 50 students to Washington, D.C. to work as Congressional aides for the summer. The In- ternship Program Committee ' s job was to provide information about the program. With this goal in mind, the committee held seminars which gave stud ents tips on how to apply for a position or whom to contact for an interview. Once students were selected by a Congressman ' s office, the committee helped them locate housing in Washington. Although the Career Contacts Committee was not as familiar as the Internship Program Committee, it served an invaluable function by matching UT students with a professional in their field of study. The professionals aid- ed the students by advising them of the specifics of that profession. ft . ' Like many other organizations on cam- pus, the committee ' s main project in 1982-83 was celebration of the Centennial. Centering activities around Texas Independence Day on March 2, the festivities began at high noon with the traditional Texas Tea Toast on the Main Mall. Immediately following the toast, students, faculty and alumni mov- ed to the Texas Union Patio for a happy hour barbecue sponsored by the Travis County Ex-Students. The West Mall was alive with a carnival coordinated by the SIC which featured a face painting booth, a cake decorating contest, and a Vic Jacobs look- alike contest with Jacobs himself serving as judge. Jacobs was a zany sportscaster for KTVV Channel 36. By DeAndra Logan FIRST ROW: Julie Ann Tindall.Jo Kathryne Lewallen.

Student Involvement Committee 363 SOCIAL w TEJAS CLUB EST CAMPUS WARRIORS Cornering the market on student involvement In conjunction with The University ' s 100th anniversary, the Centennial Committee organized a Student Leader Reunion for April 9- Campus organizations were en- couraged to invite their alumni to visit the campus and meet current members. Along these lines, the Tejas Club decided to update its activities by showcasing memorable moments from the past 50 years. Compiling memorabilia from club scrapbooks, members outlined the changes that had taken place both on campus and within Te- jas. Pleased that the Student Leader Reunion coincided with Round-Up weekend, Tejas member Kevin Brown said that it was " a good weekend because it allowed everyone to reflect on the past as well as the future. " Also in April, Tejas co-sponsored its an- nual Capital Area Honors Day with the Orange Jackets. For this program, four stu- dent representatives from 13 Austin-area high schools were collected for a com- parative study of university lifestyles. The theme of the program was " UT as an exam- ple of the opportunities that a large universi- ty affords its students. " Tejas member Dar- rell Gurney said: " It was not a propaganda offer for UT but a program designed to give students an idea of what they ' re looking for in a university. " Guest speakers included Shirley Bird Perry, Dr. Michael Stoff and Mitch Kriendler citing their views as ad- ministrator, faculty member and Students ' Association president, respectively. Another Tejas activity was the March 2 Faculty Staff Breakfast designed to kick off the Texas Independence Day celebration and recognize distinguished members of the University community. After a brief speech by Regent Howard Richards, the breakfast ended with a champagne toast and " The Eyes of Texas. " Brown said that " the breakfast gave us a chance to recognize con- tributions of outstanding individuals while encouraging them to keep it up as well.

Austin communities. Although the 34 members exhibited characteristics of leader- ship, scholarship and service, club president Charley Montero saw Tejas as more than a service organization. " We consider ourselves an on-campus fraternity; however, we ' re pro- sably more of a social men ' s club. " Club activities ran the gamut from mon- thly parties after football games to Trevor Pearlman ' s victory party after the student government elections to the club ' s weekly ' Friday Bar. " Montero elaborated, saying, ' We would get together over at the house on Friday afternoons, sit around and talk, cut-up and watch the wrecks at the corner of 26th and Rio Grande. " Community concerns were equally impor- tant for the Tejas Club. Most noted were the parties for the children at the Texas School for the Deaf each semester.

" There are still charter members around and Shirley Bird Perry issued a challenge to bring back one fourth of the alums, which would be 300 out of 1300, " said Margot Brito, president. At the traditional brunch, usually sched- uled during the fall, the organization official- ly recognized 27 tappees as Orange Jackets and installed the newly elected officers. The date of the installations was switched with the Mother-Daughter Brunch in order to correspond with Centennial activities. Ron- ald Brown, vice president of Student Affairs and Shirley Bird Perry, vice president and coordinator of Centennial programming, ad- dressed the convocation. They were fol- lowed by a panel of six women representing each decade since the 1920s, who discussed the " Changing Role of Women in Society. " The Mother-Daughter Brunch coincided with Dads ' Day Weekend and was held on Nov. 7 at Fonda San Miguel. Dr. Margaret Berry, UT historian and a former Orange Jacket, entertained the mothers and daughters with anecdotes from their past. The Orange Jackets worked with seven other groups to make the Student Endowed Centennial Fellow Fund dream a reality. Formed in 1979, a study group composed of Orange Jackets, Mortar Board, Friar Society, Omicron Delta Kappa, Silver Spurs, Spooks, Texas Cowboys and Texas Posse, had set a goal of $100,000 to enhance the oppor- tunities and activities of students. This fund would enable individuals of national stature to visit The University and give students ac- cess to the men and women whom they may not otherwise have had the opportunity to meet. The Orange Jackets also were represented in the Student Life Exhibit at the LBJ Library where they had a display por- traying scenes of Orange Jackets ' history. Serving as student representatives from UT for United Way, Orange Jackets held a carwash on Oct. 29 to raise funds. Brito cited the composition of the group as their strong point. " We ' re a diverse group of people with members representing dif- ferent councils, colleges as well as extracur- ricular activities, like the Longhorn Band, " said Brito, adding " This way we can repre- sent The University in different capacities which is our main goal.

" We encourage community amongst those who identify with Lutheran ideals of hope, freedom, grace and paradox, " ex- plained the group ' s president, Doug Mains. Standing by this paradoxical theme (giving without expecting anything in return), the Lutheran Campus Ministry gathered and distributed food to those in need in the Austin area. They also went to a nursing home in Round Rock, a Lutheran affiliate, and read and wrote letters for the elderly. The Lutheran Campus Ministries also spon- sored a clothing drive on Palm Sunday. In conjunction with UT ' s Centennial celebration, the Ministry helped out by sponsoring a reunion with Texas Exes who were members of the Lutheran Center. A ser- vice at the Union, followed by dinner, led up to the main program featuring Walter Cronkite on April 9. The purpose of the Ministry ' s involvement in the Centennial celebration was to get others involved when they came back, Mains said. " Membership selection is on a voluntary basis ... all who attend qualify, " Mains said. New students at The University were en- couraged to attend activities at a beginning- of-the-semester luncheon given by the direc- tors of the Lutheran Center: the Rev. Charles Born and the Rev. Curtis Johnson. " When I first started going to the center, I was really impressed with the attitude of openness there, " said member Dink O ' Neal. " That ' s why I kept coming back. " The University Lutheran Center was built near campus in 1971 one block from the Drag at 21st and San Antonio streets, and it offered opportunities for students to gather throughout the year for retreats with other Texas and Arkansas university Lutheran groups, for weekly Bible studies and Sunday night meetings. by Miles Fain FIRST ROW: Elaine Marie Jacobson, Kenneth Wade Hartfiel, Lynn Mary Ulzheimer, Wendell Lars Peterson, Sandra Kay Mickelson, Brian Helmer Warner, Kimberly Sue Murray.

Lutheran Campus Ministries SERVICE F UNIVERSITY STUDENT ATHEISTS REEDOM OF CHOICE Separating Church and State As part of their 19 82-83 speaker series, the University Student Atheists welcomed Mark Plummer to campus in April. Plummer was an attorney in Australia who handled cases which paralleled situations that concerned atheists in the United States. " They ' re sprouting atheists over there (in Australia), " said Robin Murray-O ' Hair, president of University Student Atheists. She said that in large regions of Australia where relatively few people lived, the atheist move- ment was strong. However, Murray-O ' Hair said that the Australian parliament had passed a parochial scoool aid program that American atheists feared would be a model for the type of government aid U.S. fun- damentalists want for parochial schools. Murray-O ' Hair said the purpose of University Student Atheists was to support the separation of church and state. Other issues which got the attention of the Student Atheists included the textbook adoption proceedings in Texas. Murray-O ' Hair said the Student Atheists wanted to " protest the protest " of the people who sought to impose their fundamentalist beliefs on society through textbook content. The group also stressed dissemination of information. " We ' re not here to convert, " Murray-O ' Hair said. " We ' re here to say ' this is what an atheist is, ' " she said. University Student Atheists had a booth on the West Mall to provide information to interested students. All meetings were open to any stu- dent interested in attending. Other speakers who addressed the group during the fall and spring semesters included Dr. Madalyn Murray-O ' Hair of the American Atheist Center, and Dr. Grayson Browning of the UT Department of Philosophy, who discussed theocentrism (having God as the central interest and ultimate concern). Frank Marlow, who hosted the Austin Community TV " Alter- native Views " program, spoke to the group and gave a video presentation. University Student Atheists held parties on the natural holidays like the Winter Solstice. They also had several socials with the national office of the American Atheist Center. by Maureen Creamer FIRST ROW: Douglas Henry King, Robin Eileen Murray-O ' Hair.

" University LULAC was Council No. 358 of the League of United Latin American Citizens, the first and only niversity-based council in LULAC history. This unique chapter was an extension of the 154-year old league that was formed to lend a hand to Latin American citizens throughout the country. The UT chapter met twice a month in the Texas Union to discuss how he group might help obtain equal oppor- tunities in education, employment and hous- ig for Hispanics. During November and December, the :ouncil participated in a " Get Out The bte " campaign in cooperation with the her five Austin-area LULACs. Represen- ives from the administrations of Mark ite and Bill Clements presented the bernatorial candidates ' views on current isues of Chicane interest. According to Nellyn Diaz, the council ' s president, " We ' re j non-partisan group, we try to represent the views of both major parties fairly and we jiever endorse a candidate. " During the week of Feb. 13-19, the club celebrated LULAC ' s 54th anniversary. ULAC Week began with the dedication of i war memorial honoring Chicanes from [lexas who died in World War II, Vietnam d Korea at the Benson Latin American Collection in the Sid Richardson Hall. A col- ection of LULAC presidential papers dating jack to 1929 were placed on exhibition in he Rare Books collection at the LBJ library n conjunction with the week ' s activities. " Involvement " was the main thrust of alks given throughout the week by Chicano eaders from the Austin community. Chicano students were advised to get in- olved in the political parties and goings-on f the community in order to help each ;her as a people. Speakers including Michael Gonzales, Ferdinand Luna and Cathy Villalpondo, encouraged s tudents to ronsider what they could do in 1982-83 to setter prepare for life in the 21st century. The council offered a scholarship in 1983 vhich was provided in part by the LULAC National Council. University LULAC llocated $500 and the National Council Hatched this amount, granting a UT student $1,000 academic scholarship to be 3resented in the fall of 1983. -by Miles Fain Michael Gonzales, president Dallas Ft.

University LULAC 369 SERVICE J LONGHORN PHI THETA KAPPA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION UST LIKE STARTING OVER UT spells change for transfer students While gazing at the Tower, the transfer student felt humbled at such a large universi- ty. This was the big step inside, she believed that junior college had been only an accelerated version of high school. To help ease her mind, the Longhorn Phi Theta Kappa Alumni Association sponsored PTK Day on Nov. 12 to allow students from junior colleges who were members of the PTK honor society to see The University. Seminars and guided tours given by former members of this honorary society for junior college students with grade point averages 3.5 or higher, helped ease the tension and anxiety experienced by many. PTK Day programs allowed students to talk directly with representatives of such of- fices as Admissions, who would aid them in their transition. Besides setting up appoint- ments with deans, the PTK Alumni members gave potential transfer students a campus tour. By sponsoring PTK Day, it allowed members to help the junior college transfers to begin to " adjust to University life, " said Teresa Rodgers, president. Admission into the alumni chapter re- quired a student to be a member of a PTK chapter at a junior college. If requ irements were met, they were inducted formally in a candlelight ceremony on Sept. 17. Four Phi Theta Kappas received $500 scholarships. They were Renee Jordan, Mike Nepveux, Frank Noyola and Christine Ta. Joining the ranks at UT was not the end of a transfer ' s relationship with PTK. " It ' s really important that at a school of 50,000, you know you have a family, " Rodgers said. " Our group tried to find activities that everyone could become involved with, " she added. Besides working on the University Centennial through the Student Involvement Committee, PTK members helped the UT Office of Admissions during the spring with recruiting paperwork. The UT chapter also sponsored a leadership conference in September for the purpose of training the of- ficers for practical duties and conducting a research project. In addition to attending the holiday par- ties held by the UT PTK Alumni chapter, they joined the PTK chapter at Austin Com- munity College for a picnic on Oct. 24. The group also formed a bowling team which competed at the Texas Union. by Pat Vires Discussion at Longhorn Phi Theta Kappa Alumni Association meetings is a main soutce of ideas for service projects I IKS I ROW: Teresa Jane Rogers, Trang-Thuy Thi Ta, Leticia Leonor Garcia, Tracy Lynn Snead, Frankie Oliv Noyola.

In light of difficult economic times, liberal arts majors recognized that networking could be valuable to them, too. With the development of their new Career Orientation project, the Plan II Student Association provided the opportunity for those students in the Plan II program to make such ties. " Two students put together a file of Plan II alumni and what they ' re do- ing today, " said Nancy Novelli, the group ' s director of public relations. " It gives Plan II people an idea of what they can do with their liberal arts degrees, " she added. Enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts, Plan II majors could also gain practical ex- perience from the program. " It is a way for students to get internships with alumni who are in their field, " said academic adviser Ellen Jackusch. The Plan II program, which was founded in 1935, was designed so that each student could have considerable control over his or her own academic career. In addition to regular courses, those in the program took classes designed especially for Plan II students, and had to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA to remain in the degree plan. The organization, which was formed in the fall of 1981, was not meant to represent all Plan II students, but it did provide " a lit- tle more cohesion in the group (of Plan II students), " Jackusch said. " We see each other repeatedly in classes, " said Novelli, " and we thought it was impor- tant to see each other out of class, too. " The group accomplished this in several ways. Upperclassmen served informally as peer advisers for incoming freshmen and helped them find ways to get involved at UT. In addition, they published a Plan II director, listing the names and addresses of the 530 Plan II students. by Judy Ward FIRST ROW: David Edward Myers. SECOND ROW: Jodie Kathleen Labowitz, Angela J.

Plan II Student Association 371 SERVICE I TEXAS RELAYS STUDENT COMMITTEE T ' S ALL IN THE TIMING Promoting the Texas Relays is a running commitment How do you please sports fans, art en- thusiasts and those people who still have a soft spot for pageantry? The Texas Relays Committee organized a Fun Run, sponsored an art show and selected a queen. These events helped the committee accomplish its goal, which was to promote and publicize Texas ' annual spring track meet, the Texas Relays, held April 6-9. Beginning at noon on April 9, the five- mile Fun Run started on the southeast side of Memorial Stadium and wound its way around the campus. The entry fee entitled participants to an official Texas Relays belt buckle and T-shirt as well as a pass to all Relays events. The race was open to all. The Relays Committee also sponsored the Cowboy Art Show and auction on April 9. The proceeds went to a scholarship fund for athletes who had run out of eligibility, but were still in school. One of the Relay Committee ' s most im- portant functions was the selection of the Texas Relays Queen. The queen was selected from a field of applicants by two members of the queen selection subcommittee, several track captains and a member of the coaching staff. The 1983 queen was Elaine Kartalis, a Communications sophomore. The Texas Relays Committee also helped the meet run smoothly by helping process all entries and by preparing the track and field for the different events. Likewise, Commit- tee member s helped officiate the decathalon. In addition to overseeing these projects the Committee was also in charge of organizing the program for the Relays. Each member was required to sell at least two $50 sponsorships. Sponsorships, from companies like Nike, were solicited from Austin-area businesses, as well as state-wide corpora- tions. by Laura Flores FIRST ROW: Jose Agustin Martinez, Curtis Wade McKinney, Kelley Rene Smith, Alison Patricia Williams, Robert Wesley Noel, Susan Leigh Harmon, George Weldon Newton, Bert William O ' Malley.

P. Schoch, a UT professor of chemistry. Because of his love for music and his deter- mination to see a musical group at The University, Schoch arranged for " The band " to be formally organized in 1900, and for Dr. H. W. Baxter, a coronetist and director of ability, to be brought in as official director. Schoch continued to manage the group and sat in to play bass and clarinet. He was the official director from 1905-1910. The first instruments were bought in a local Austin pawn shop, and were soldered and repaired for the band ' s use. New in- struments were purchased in 1901 with receipts from special attractions and public concerts that the band staged. Additional in- struments were acquired after World War I from remnants of military bands. Before settling in the modern confines of the Music Building East, the Longhorn Band erved time in facilities all over campus. Its first home was a shack located under UT ' s water tower where the Biological Laboratories stand. From its first shack, LHB graduated to T Hall, a wooden struc- ture. Finally, the band occupied its own of- ficial Longhorn Band shack, ' located north of Memorial Stadium, until 1969. During the Longhorn Band ' s first perfor- mances, members wore whatever they could locate until they acquired their first uniforms, which consisted of white dusters, white caps with black bills and black trousers. This was the LHB ' s uniform until 1929 when the Athletic Council, prompted by the Students ' Association, purchased new uniforms. These official uniforms consisted of white trousers, coats and capes, all trimm- ed in orange, and tall plumed " busbies " (caps) to match. They made their first ap- pearance in the new garb at the 1929 Texas A M game in College Station. While Burnett Pharr held the band ' s directorship from 1917-1930, it was under Col. George Hurt (1937-1952) that the LHB grew to a peak of 250 people. Afterwards, the band grew steadily to the present 300- plus member organization. It was Vincent DiNino (1955-1975) that introduced the Texas Stars, the band ' s drill team, which fad- ed after he left. It was also during Vincent DiNino ' s years as director of the group another milestone occurred in the history of the Longhorn Band the admittance of women. The first females were initiated in 1956, although they were not allowed to march at that point. It was only at the Oklahoma game of the following year, when many of the men in the group were stricken with the Asian flu, that they performed at a football game. Along the way, several other traditions which were to endure throughout the years were instigated. One of the more solemn oc- casions for LHB members is the " Passing of the President ' s Ring, " which takes place at the annual spring banquet. The ritual began near the end of World War II, after Curtis Popham, then the drum major, was killed in combat. His parents gave his University ring to the Longhorn Band to be passed down among future drum majors. Perhaps better known is Big Bertha, who made her debut in 1955. Fifty-four inches wide and 10 feet tall, she originally served the University of Chicago. After that univer- sity dropped its football program, Dr. Harold Byrd purchased her for LHB ' s use thus she became the " Sweetheart of the Longhorn band.

As hook-em signs and gazes reached toward the sky, the UT populace saw the glittering instruments of the LHB brass swaying in harmony as the hands of the Tower clocks moved slowly toward UT ' s next 100 years. The first student visitors to the Tower since it was closed in 1975, LHB members proclaimed the beginning of a new and pro- mising period of UT history. This impressive event was only a part of the LHB ' s participa- tion in the Centennial opening celebration. Around noon, hundreds of people gathered on the Main Mall for the Centen- nial opening day ceremonies. Exuberant sounds of " March Grandiose " echoed across campus as three divisions of the LHB converged on the Tower from the Com- munications Building, the corner of 24th and Speedway and the Perry-Castaneda Library. Taking their place in front of the crowd, band members raised their instruments with their classic military precision and began to play " The Eyes of Texas. " As an ROTC honor guard raised the Centennial flag, a group of LHB members located on a South Mall terrace played an in- spiring trumpet fanfare. Photographers and television cameramen panned the Mall try- ing to capture the Centennial spirit. In 1981, members of the LHB formed a Centennial committee whose job was to plan LHB Centennial activities and submit them to the Centennial office for approval. One of the most impressive contributions planned by the committee was a special musical com- position to commemorate the Centennial. Written by well-known composer Martow Gould, " Gala for Band " had four movements and lasted approximately 21 minutes. The band planned to debut the piece on April 9 for the Round-Up Review and include it in Bandorama, the LHB Spring concert on April 10. Designed to be one of the most im- pressive shows ever performed by LHB, the special Centennial halftime show, planned for Dads ' Day during the 1983 football season, was charted during the preceeding summer. The show featured a slide show of LHB ' s past and members dressed in the uniforms worn by the first Longhorn Band. In conjunction with the Student Leader Reunion held during Round-Up weekend, LHB invited alumni to visit campus. The LHB also decided to present a historical pro- gram, give tours of the new music facilities and give a grand reception for their alumni. Andy and Andre Silvestre, members of the LHB Centennial Committee, described what the Centennial meant to them. " In the past years, we haven ' t been keeping up with our history (LHB ' s) and now in this Centen- nial year, we ' ve come upon a time for greater interest in what we ' ve done in the last 83 years.

Longhorn Band 375 LONGHORN BAND: Presenting the Showband of the Southwest It ' s the middle of an exciting football game; you and thousands of other fans are screaming wholeheartedly because the Longhorns are in the process of pounding the opposing team into the ground. Sudden- ly, the halftime gun sounds. Time to go get a hot dog, popcorn or a Coke? No way, folks, the fun was just beginning. The sea of orange in Memorial Stadium roared with pleasure as the announcer cried, " Ladies and gentlemen, the Showband of the Southwest, The University of Texas Longhorn Band! " And once again LHB thrilled their au- dience with eight minutes chock-full of entertainment. They always played current hits like the themes from " ET " and " Star Trek " as well as old favorites like " Wabash CannonbaU " and " Yellow Rose of Texas. " " Versatility is a strong suit. We must always be aware of changes that need to be made as well as traditions that are a part of The University. If we restricted ourselves to just one style, we would not be reflecting a ' University of the first class, ' " said Glenn Richter, LHB director. Work for the upcoming football season began during the preceeding spring when Richter solicited ideas for music to be used for halftime shows. Students in LHB recom- mended themes from their favorite movies, or TV shows, or even songs from the Top 40 Charts. They also considered songs that had fared well before audiences in the past. From these suggestions, music for the halftime and pre-game shows was selected. Many factors were taken into considera- tion when Richter and his associates chose LHB music. Was it a strong, catchy tune that an audience would enjoy? Could it be adapted well to the band? Was it just the right level of difficulty? Were the tempo and rhythm good? When all these questions were answered, Richter chose the songs that would be performed throughout the upcom- ing football season. The songs were then sent to one of LHB ' s arrangers, who adapted a version of the song for the band ' s ose. The arranger had to be sympathetic to the musicians, making sure that the arrangement was not so difficult that it made the simultaneous marching and playing of the piece impossible. Once the song had been arranged, Richter devised what he called " a musical sketch. " Analyzing every measure of the song so as to choreograph appropriate movements to the music, he mapped out the movements of every person on a chart which to the uneducated eye looked like a page of tiny circles with numbers in them. " We are trying to get the strongest interpretation of the music, " said Richter of the drills he devised. By the time LHB reached this stage in their preparations, fall had rolled around and football fever swept the University com- munity. Students passing by Memorial Stadium on weekday evenings heard whistles, toots and a variety of musical sounds emanating from within. Rehearsals for the LHB were fast-paced and vigorous in view of the excellence expected from each band member by the audience and Richter. TEXAS! - TEXAS through its halftime performance strategies in Memorial Stadium, one member is planning strategy to retrieve the missing piece of unifi 376 Longhorn Band e admitted that " they ' re more critical of hemselves than most organizations on cam- us. If they ' re wrong, they know it. " In order to be at their best for their Satur- ay performance, LHB members practiced ,ong and hard to get their drills perfect in very respect. Richter looked at every detail over and over to ensure that all mistakes were ironed out before the big game. " I look especially for lack of symmetry. It is especially important for both the left and the right sides of the band to look exactly like Tiirror images of each other. I also look for he feet being in synchronization, posture, horn carriage and effort, " Richter said. " This s also important because the amount of ;nergy a musician puts into the performance be detected by the audience. And once :he music deteriorates, so does the mar- hing, " he continued. Within the band were people who con- ributed a special part to halftime. One of hese was the LHB drum major, Doug akenhus. He and Richter coordinated practices so that problem areas could be given attention. If a section was having a problem, Bakenhus discussed it w ith the sec- tion leader so that it could be corrected. But this was not the only duty of the drum major he also acted as a " field general " to LHB during each show. " He must be aware of the music and understand the tempos. He must be a good musician and most of all a com- petent conductor, " said Richter. Probably the most popular portion of the show to the males in the audience was the LHB feature twirler, Dawn Dodson. Richter had total confidence in her talent, saying " I ' ve seen many, and she ' s definitely the best. " He said he gave her total control of her routines and she prepared them herself. The Longhorn Band is now making their exit from the field, marching enthusiastically to " Texas Fight. " You and other Longhorn fans are singing the words right along with them. Soon the game will be over and LHB will be preparing yet another show for your enjoyment. by Laura Flores Band member prepares for halftime show. J Although Longhorn Band members practiced their music and marching for many hours, they needed no lessons in firing up for the Texas-OU game. Longhorn Band 377 LONGHORN BAND " A Sun Bowl! " protested Longhorn Band member Susan Finder, concerning the weather at the UT North Carolina game held in El Paso. " More like a Snow Bowl! " A 75-member squad of the Longhorn Band equipped with instruments, cowbells and mittens was sent to support the football team in its last game of the season as they battled the North Carolina Tarheels on Christmas Day. " It was the first white Christmas I ' d ever had. Most people that have lived in Texas all their lives aren ' t used to that kind of stuff especially if you ' re from Port Arthur, " ex- plained six-year band member Hal Klein. " I ' ve never been so cold at a football game in all my life, " he continued. " My feet were numb to the bone. " In addition to performing at El Paso ' s Civic Center for the press and for both teams, the group played in Town Square amidst a flurry of Christmas Eve snow, and again at the dinner held for the teams that night at their hotel, marching around the banquet hall in true show band style. Because their departure flight was delayed on account of icy conditions, and because high holiday spirits became even friskier due to the cold and thoughts of a long Christmas break, a rousing snowball fight was in- evitably in order. " Man, I don ' t know how that snowman got in the pool, " snickered an anonymous LHB member. " I ' ll never forget our trip back. It surely was an exciting ride I ' ll tell you! " " First of A trumpet player performs during the Rice game. all the cabin was filled with smoke that wouldn ' t have been so bad except for the turbulence. Not just little bumps either! Let me tell you, it ' s really comforting to hear your luggage bumping around and to look back and see your stewardess bumping her head on the roof, " said Finder. Although the members who went were absent from their families on Christmas, few regretted ringing their cowbells and cheering beside their fellow band members at this snowy Sun Bowl, Christmas of 1982. Even though there were no more football games after the Christmas holidays, members did not simply pack up their pic- colos and put away the cowbells. After foot- ball season the Longhorn Band " broke up into eight smaller bands, " said LHB cor- onetist Danny Stewart, listing them as " the LHB, Texas, and Orange regular ensemble bands, the brass band, two jazz bands, and The Symphony and Wind Ensemble. " Dur- ing their band classes, members dispersed and practiced with their respective bands. On Sunday, April 10, the divisions per- formed together in the Performing Arts Center for LHB ' s Band-A-Rama, a series of individual concerts given by each of the eight bands followed by an all-band finale. In addition to their dedication to these small concert ensembles, band members per- formed at the Texas Relays April 6-9, the Fiesta Flambo Parade in San Antonio April 23, and at baseball and men ' s and women ' s basketball games. by Miles Fain . _jj.

Longhorn Band 381 SERVICE B KAPPA KAPPA PSI RQTHERHOOD IN THE BAND But more was shared than orange blood On the UT campus there were the usual collegiate subcultures the groups of peo- ple who seemed to " relate " to each other like the Greeks, geeks, jocks, and of course, the band. With retreats and reunions, the Longhorn Band has long proved that orange blood is thicker than water. Some of the closest members of the clan were un- doubtedly the brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi. Tommy Mathis, secretary, said Kappa Kappa Psi strived " to serve the band, but to also build a brotherhood. " This promise was fulfilled at every oppor- tunity by members of Kappa Kappa Psi. Their traditional duties included refreshing both the LHB and visiting bands with soft drinks and fruit during each football game. They also provided barbecue for the hungry musicians at each home game. Service was not limited to the LHB, but was extended to members of the UT com- munity as well. Kappa Kappa Psi pitched in to help the residents of Hardin House dorm move in at the beginning of the school year. Within Longhorn Band circles, selection to Kappa Kappa Psi was considered a great honor. Members were chosen on the basis of musical and marching prowess, leadership and service to the band. Tradition dictated that each pledge class have a class name which was secret to all but the pledge brothers. The class also worked together to plan the pledge project which would ultimately serve the LHB. In 1982-83 the group endeavored to refurbish the speaker boxes which the group used when traveling, as well as the hat and poncho boxes. Kappa Kappa Psi also participated in many activities with its sister organization Tau Beta Sigma. Together they sponsored the LHB spring picnic, and hosted a supper for new band members. by Laura Flores FIRST ROW: James Alan Nyfeler, Steven Randall Lozano, Wilberto Perez, Stephen Victor Hatch, Alan Neal Stevens, Alan Christopher Wayland.

No It ' s Tau Beta Sigma to the rescue again as they bring ater to the tired and thirsty members of the nghorn Band during practice. The purpose of Tau Beta Sigma, an norary service organization for women in college bands, was to serve the band, esides delivering water at rehearsals, the vomen also altered uniforms and sold T- birts. At all home games they distributed da and apples to members of LHB and the siting band. They also packed sack lunches 3r games played away from Austin. In addition to their service endeavors, TBS sponsored a number of social events. During Dads ' Day weekend in November, they hosted a reception for their fathers. Members held their alumni brunch in the band hall, located in the Music Building. Donna McCormick, one of the founding members of Tau Beta Sigma, was the guest speaker for the brunch. Tau Beta Sigma ' s Mother-Daughter brunch was held on Feb. 27. Together with Kappa Kappa Psi, the Longhorn Band fraternity, the women had a steak-fry at an Austin park and a spring picnic at Zilker Park. Breaking with traditional university dating habits, Tau Beta Sigma held a Sadie Hawkins Dance on Feb. 12 where the women of Tau Beta Sigma escorted the men of Kappa Kappa Psi. In addition to this party, the group spon- sored several other annual parties. They also gathered for retreats at lakes around Austin during the summer. To be considered for membership in Tau Beta Sigma, a woman had to have lettered in Longhorn Band at least two semesters. Members were chosen based upon marching and playing performance, spirit and involve- ment in the band. Prospective members were selected twice a year and proceeded through a series of formal ceremonies and pledging processes before becoming members of Tau Beta Sigma. by Laura Kruegger (FIRST ROW: Vivian Lynne Moore, Leah Fisher, Valerie Summers Taylor, Diana Lynn Oxford, Stephanie Jill Reich, Deborah Jean Kubacak, Denise Lea Dinsmore.

Tau Beta Sigma 383 SERVICE D ALPHA PHI OMEGA OING WHAT NEEDS DONE Always ready with a helping hand. On a cluttered bulletin board in room 4.402 in the Texas Union hung a small piece of pink paper with a message written in pur- ple magic marker that read: 11 10 82 Dear A.P.O. I liked Badge Day. It was so good I ' m going to come back. I hope I get the badge soon. Love, Kristin Troop 17 This was just one of the many letters of appreciation posted in the Alpha Phi Omega office from Girl Scouts like Kristin, people in the community and officials of The University who benefited from APO ' s ser- vice projects. Promoting " Badge Day " to assist boy and girl scouts in completing the work necessary to earn a service badge was one of these service projects. According to Jim Nicar, APO ' s director of guided tours, APO members also " gave tours throughout the school year. " Conducting ap- proximately 1,200 tours in 1982-83, members were trained during their pledgeships to give the one to three-and-one- half-hour tours around the UT campus. " Most tours began and ended at the Main Building, " said Nicar, " but everything in bet- ween varied according to what the people were most interested in. Most of the tours we gave were for high school students from the Dallas, Houston and Corpus Christi areas, but we gave some special tours, too, like the trip around campus for the class of ' 35 and tours for Spanish speakers, " he added. Another of APO ' s services to The University was their help in manning polling booths and counting ballots for campus- wide elections. Seated behind tables located in strategic places around campus, members of APO handed out ballots to registered students and recorded each student ' s vote b punching their ID card. Catching the eye of Texas students w; not a problem for APO members as th demonstrated during their annual fundraise for the Heart Association, the " Tub Pull. ' Members placed a bathtub on wheels and pulled it around campus asking fellow students for donations. During their annual blood drive APO representatives dressed v- A referendum to establish seats in the Student Senate for minority students attracted a small voter turnout at the booth manned by APO members Mitch Noel and Sally Reaves)) 384 Alpha Phi Omega giant drops of blood and walked through ster cafeteria encouraging students to give ood. Ballons, T-shirts and a public mouncement on Channel 24 kept students vare of the week-long drive. Approx- lately 1,600 pints of blood were collected. Perhaps one of their least known, but just noteworthy service activities was the :ginning-of-the-semester APO " Rat itrol. " Students in APO converged upon ist Austin in City of Austin dump trucks icre residents had lined up rows and rows garbage and junk for the " rat pack " to ad up and carry off. In addition to these service projects, the 5 actives and pledges of APO helped with enormous ticket lines and registration r the OU Texas football game, ushered all ustin Sympony Concerts and other special ents, such as the Centennial Revue at the rforming Arts Center. They spent time aying with the fifth through 10th grade kids at the Texas State School for the Blind. They landscaped and painted the Center for Battered Women, in addition to preparing a Thanksgiving dinner for the Center. Their projects accumulated a total of approx- imately 6,000 hours of service on campus and in the Austin area. by Miles Fain Members of Alpha Phi Omega had not one, but two mascots a " patron saint " for the pledge class, Seg, and one for the active members, Elmer T. Zilch Jr. Made of plaster, Seg was approximately one foot high and was dressed in the uniform of a minor naval officer. Elmer, also made of plaster and a lit- tle taller than Seg, was a " Chow Hound " (a spirit club in APO). " Chow Hounds " were created in 1952 by APO on the premise that " all men are created eaters, " according to APO senior John Devenport. Membership to this special society was restricted to those people who generally " make pigs of themselves, " said Devenport. After two weeks into the pledge period actives and pledges had to be on their guard as both Elmer and Seg become open game. Pledges attempted to kidnap Elmer and the actives attempted to kidnap Seg. If either group was successful, tney tried to hang on to their captive until the end-of-the-semester banquet. At this time, the conquering group released their hostage through some in- genious prank. In the past, actives had returned Seg after presenting a slide show that depicted the patron saint performing various unseemly acts. During one banquet, Elmer surprised the actives by returning to them from the depths of a cake shaped like the Tower. ' PO member John Pozzi distributes information about the times, locations and dates of the Blood Drive. It also mentioned who the Blood Drive benefited. ._ Alpha Phi Omega 385 APO Like the world ' s largest Texas flag spread out across the field in Memorial Stadium during Longhorn football games, so were the caretakers and paraders of the flag, the members of Alpha Phi Omega, blanketed across the 40 acres during The University ' s Centennial celebrations. " We were all over the place, " said first- year member Kathryn Hooper. " We helped out with just about every event going on. I really feel like we made a positive contribu- tion to the celebration, " she said. Members voted in 1982 prior to the com- mencement of the celebrations to select which of the Centennial events APO would help out with. " The president ' s office re- quested that we might become an arm for that office to reach out to the students dur- ing this time and gave us a list of events where help was needed, " explained Alpha Phi Omega President Bill Hollister. " We had to be very selective, though. We would rather say ' no ' to a job if we know we can ' t do it. We took on as many assignments as we could handle, " he continued. Mary Riley, the group ' s secretary, ex- plained how APO acquired manpower to lend a hand with Centennial events. " Sign-up sheets were posted for members to assist in walking the flag in the Round-Up parade, registering alumni at the Special Events Center, ushering the Centennial Review, helping ready participants in the Texas Relays Fun Run, giving campus tours and manning the APO information booth located at the Union. It was a job, but we did it! " she said. Perhaps there was an added enthusiasm and fervor to complete the task before them due to the excitement of 100th year anniver- sary festivities, but the driving force for APO members was not celebration, but service. " That was one of the main reasons we invited back our APO alumni, " explained Steve Var- tanian, APO member. " We wanted to show them that we ' re still showing love to our fellow man and carrying on the gooc work of brotherhood they began. " Ex-APO members arrived in town April amidst the celebration surrounding t Centennial Round-Up weekend. They wi treated to a " Blast from the Past " reunio: party where party-goers dressed in tl fashions from past eras of UT student attire In addition, alumni saw service-minde APOers involved in the other anniversary celebrations during the weekend. This in eluded the Centennial Review, where Alpha Phi Omega members served as ushers for the presentation of 100 years of student life at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall. " I loved being a part of the celebrations, ' Vartanian said of the Round-Up festivities, " It was neat the way we could participate a! over campus and see the students getting i volved and excited about the Centennial, " b added. by Miles Fai Texas Independence Day festivities served as a showcase for Alpha Phi Omega ' s display of the world ' s largest Texas flag over the southern portion of the Main Buildu 386 APO a FALL PLEDGE CLASS: Julie Ann Adams, Adriana Arce, Melissa Diane Arms, Bana Denise Ashley, Nancy Nierth Bartsch, Valerie Bell, Deborah Lynne Biegler, Catherine Ann Bonet, Byron F.

" " Hold on just a minute, please . . . What in the ding, dang world does an armadillo chase story have to do with Circle K? " " Just because they ' re the world ' s largest collegiate service organization, doesn ' t mean they don ' t chase armadillos like the rest of us! And in fact, some of them did at their Fall Training Conference Oct. 29-30 in Kerr- ville, Texas. " " Aw, come on. " " They did! And the same weekend, three of their members dressed up as Hershey ' s Kisses to win first place in the Halloween costume competition. " " Yeah? " " Yeah, but some people think the five M Ms had it for sure. " " Well, I thought Circle K was a service organization! " " They are. " " What do they do ... run around in can- dy bar outfits making the world safe from the terrors of the armadillo?! " " No, they do a lot to serve the Austin Community. They ' re the only young group that visits the Austin Manor Nursing Home on a regular basis. They sing carols and throw a big party for ' em at Christmas. And for the past three years, Circle K has given a dance-a-thon to raise money for the kids at the Austin State School. In 1982, the funds raised are going to the ' pet program. ' " " What in the heck is a pet program? " " Well, a couple of folks in Circle K had seen the idea for giving mentally ill and retarded kids the chance to take care of animals on the television show ' 60 Minutes. ' So with cooperation from the school, they ' re going to buy some cats and dogs, which the kids will get to help care for, and even begin to work on stables! " " What do you have to do to be in Circle K? Put in a bunch of hours scrubbing the floors at Jester or something before you get to be a ' real ' member?

Two hours and many ravaged muscles later the fountain was spotless. This endeavor was a regular semester project; it had become a tradition of the service organization. GDE was also very active in community services. Several of them took members of the Boys Club of Austin on a free roller skating outing. The group conducted garage sales for two organizations: the Austin State School and the Settlement Club. " A Day with a College Student " was a program GDE held for Johnston High School: they invited high school students to UT classes and campus activities for a day to give them a taste of university life. The residents of Cresthaven Nursing Home had a Thanksgiving party, courtesy of Gamma Delta Epsilon on Nov. 20. University activities included manning campus elections booths and counting votes, cleaning the stadium after the Utah and Arkansas games, gathering in the Union to greet the weekend with a TGIF, playing intramural sports, going on an overnight retreat on Nov. 12-13, and presenting awards at the banquet each semester. In order to become a GDE member, one had to complete 18 service hours, meet at- tendance requirements and be a student in good standing at The University. Initiation took place during the after-the-banquet par- ty at the end of each long session. GDE Vice President Silvester Peiia Silvas expressed the rationale behind GDE when he said, " It makes you feel good inside; that certain feeling that you ' ve brightened someone ' s day.

The tour was especially exciting for the Chamber Singers because they were among the feature groups at the American Choral Directors Association National Convention in Nashville. They were chosen to perform in conjunction with a lecture given by Dr. Morris J. Beachy, who founded the group in 1958 and was also the choir ' s director. The first stop on their itinerary was Con- way, Arkansas, where they performed for students on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas. The singers performed for various churches and university choirs in Jackson, Tennessee; Huntsville, Alabama; and Jackson, Mississippi. All of the music that the Chamber Singers performed came from the same program, ac- cording to President Lorin Wingate. However, he added, they did not perform every song at every concert. The pieces of music included selections from the Roman- tic period such as Brahms along with Mora- vian duets by Dvorak. Their show also in- cluded pieces from composers Ralph Vaughan Williams and John Gardner, and Welsh composer Hoddinot. On April 1, the Chamber Singers performed their tour music for an audience at The University. After a week-long bus ride across five states, the Chamber Singers became a united and dedicated group. " It ' s been the most im- portant part of my educational experience, " said Jimmy Wrotenberry, Chamber Singers vice president, of his work in the ensemble. " Seeing new places for the first time with a group of close friends is sharing a very special experience, " he added. At Christmas, the Chamber Singers per- formed for Austin area clubs such as the Austin Women ' s Club, the Rotary Club and the Symphony League. " We didn ' t do or- dinary pieces of Christmas music, but dif- ferent selections, " said Wingate. These selec- tions included " Lullaby My Liking " and an unusual rendition of " Deck the Halls. " On Sept. 29-30 and again on Nov. 3-4, the Chamber Singers, in conjunction with the UT dance department, performed " The Unicorn, The Gorgon, and the Manticore. " This was a madrigal dance (a musical story in which the action was danced while the text was being sung) based on the legend of the riddle of the Spinx. " It was a rewarding experience on both sides of the spectrum, " Wrotenberry said. " It was very interesting to us to be working with dancers, and for them to be working with singers, " he added. Wingate explained that neither group had ever done anything similar to the madrigal dance. It is rare that dance and singing come together in a classical sense. In order to per- form to the best of their ability in " relating a story in words, " Chamber Singers had to become comfortable with dance, just as the dancers had to become used to the song. The singers also observed another special occasion during the season. Celebrating his 25th anniversary as director, Beachy helped the group win numerous choral awards and travel all over the world. " I ' ve been with Beachy since I was 19; we have grown up together, " Wrotenberry said. " Beachy is a perfectionist who has taught me to strive for goals and reach heights I never thought I ' d reach, " he concluded. by Laura Flores FIRST ROW.

Entertainment was provided by ountry artists Roy Clark and Janie Fricke .nd The University ' s own Concert Chorale. The Chorale was hired to perform opening lumbers for the show. Two months later, 10 Concert Chorale members worked with the Chamber Singers on background vocals for Jarry Manilow ' s song " One Voice " during lis January concert at the Erwin Center. Chorale President Michele Carlson ex- gained, " We like to sing, and we like to sing or money. " This year, Concert Chorale was ffered many opportunities to do both. The PAC hosted two of the Chorale ' s ampus concerts which featured all of the hoir ' s musical works for each semester. The oncerts gave the group a chance to sing for ellow University students. Off campus, the ingers performed for the Austin area on pril 9 in a high school symposium. After- wards, Concert Chorale was off to Houston jor another choral production, this time with church organization. Carlson was most excited by the group ' s erformance of Brahm ' s " Requiem " with the ustin Choral Symphony in April. " It is simply a gorgeous piece of music, and we were really proud to do it, " she said. Concert Chorale originally began as an Acappella Choir, and later expanded into four- and eight-part harmony with concert piano and orchestral accompaniment. The new director, Larry Guess, broadened the group ' s repetoire to include arrangements by modern and pop contemporary composers. The 70 Chorale members auditioned twice for the choral department during the registration weeks of the fall and spring semesters. The singers were mainly music majors although anyone was eligible to audi- tion. All Chorale singers received two credit hours for each semester ' s membership. Having been a part of the University tradi- tion for 11 years, Concert Chorale offered students and the surrounding community fine choral works for entertainment and education. As Michele Carlson noted, " Everyone comes together to make music and enjoy it too. For that, we have a real good time. It ' s a blast!

Concert Chorale 391 CHORAL A LONGHORN SINGERS WINNING FIRST QUARTER Twenty -fifth anniversary is celebrated with music from Beatles to Braodway Strains of nostalgic music, such as Beach Boys and Beatles medleys, filled the air at the Alumni Center on April 23. This reunion show was the final performance of the Longhorn Singers commemorating their 25th anniversary in 1983. The audience, com- posed of alumni Longhorn Singers and the general public, helped in the celebration. In conjunction with The University ' s Centennial, the choir inaugurated a weekend of activities, beginning with a cocktail hour on April 22. Former and current choir members used this time to get to know each other and exchange experiences about choir times. On April 23, alumni and current members combined talents with a group rehearsal before the Reunion Show. During the first half of the show, Longhorn Singers entertained alumni with music from the past. Selections ranged from " Declaration of Independence " to " Sen- timental Journey, " including a medley of commercial jingles written exclusively for the Longhorn Singers. The second half of the show consisted of Broadway music. These selections included pieces from " Mary Poppins " and " Sound of Music. " The group also choreographed many numbers. Singers made up jazz and tap dances, presented them for approval and taught them to the other choir members. While choirs generally sing as a group, Longhorn Singers frequently divided into units when performing. The group had soloists, duets and quartets in addition to the entire choir performing. A major production for the Longhorn Singers was the Cabaret Show, a first of its kind for the Singers. Held on March 29, the show ' s proceeds helped cover expenses for the Reunion Show. Held at the Alumni Center, the Cabaret Show featured many specialty songs from Broadway musicals, such as " Hello Dolly " and " Grease. " Besides performing, the longhorn Singers were also waiters for the show. The Fall Show was held in Hogg Auditorium on Nov. 5, and rather than focus on traditional Broadway hits, the singers featured spirituals like " Same Train " and " Have a Little Talk with Jesus. " There were also barbershop quartet numbers which in- cluded " How are You Going to Keep Them Down on the Farm? " and " Maw, He ' s Mak- ing Eyes at Me. " The group frequently entertained at ban- quets or meetings, usually receiving compen- sation. The Singers performed for the IBM Corporation on Jan. 22 and 28. In December, the Singers collaborated with other UT Choral organizations and sang at the Christmas show at the PAC.

" Allen said, " We did specialty numbers I like those because people wouldn ' t stand ( still too long. " She explained that the upbeat I music typically performed by a group such l as Longhorn Singers, kept the attention of I people in the audience longer. The Longhorn Singers, observing a tradi- t tion dating back to the ' 60s, closed each rehearsal and performance by singing " The Eyes of Texas " and extending an open in- vitation to members of the audience, friends and family to join them at Scholz ' s Beer Garten. by Pat Vires During one of the group ' s regular practice sessions, Director Cindy Couch leads the Longhorn Singers. A busy season in their 25th year of concert-giving, including their Reunion Show and Cabaret Show, kept the Longhorn Singers busy practicing throughout the spring. Longhorn Singers 393 Ilk CHORAL I INNERVISIONS OF BLACKNESS N PERFECT HARMONY Teaching the world to sing " Don ' t worry if it ' s not good enough for anyone else to hear, just sing, . . . sing a song. " Singing was a pleasant task to the In- nervisions of Blackness choir, as well as for those who listened to their music. The choir was a way for black students who sang in church choirs at home to be in- volved with singing and church activities while at The University. With membership open to anyone, the choir drew attention with posters, personal recruiting and " besides, our reputation speaks for itself, " said member Valerie Thompson. In its ninth year, Innervisions was also a way to meet people with common interests. Throughout the year the choir sang in community churches. On Feb. 26, 10 choirs from colleges around the state of Texas met at the University of Texas at Arlington for a " Innervisions is more than just a choir. I joined my freshman year, in 1980, and met most of my friends there; it ' s social as well as musical. There ' s a deep spirit of brotherhood and camaraderie. There aren ' t many blacks at The University and this is our way of getting together and celebrating our culture. Music is our cultural tool, " said Eddie Reeves. choir rally and a series of informative workshops which included such topics as how to record one ' s own music and how to go about obtaining a copyright. Each choir presented their own material and later joined for a spectacular grande finale. Along with the local performances and trips to other schools, this talented group performed on Dec. 4 for the National Association for the Advancement of Col- ored People at the Bradford Hotel. They also had a series of small fundraisers such as bake sales and a cookie sale to help sponsor their trip to Arlington. In April, the Innervisions of Blackness Choir held their annual spring concert for UT students and faculty.

I could write a book on how you ' re making me feel. I know I ' ll never find another who could match the love you ' ve given me. This is for the lover in you I ' ll always be true, " sang the Universi- ty Chorus over the telephone in their annual fundraiser: singing telegrams on Valentine ' s Day. With someone special in mind, students chose a love song they liked from the chorus ' repertoire. Quartets then sang the song over the telephone to the specified loved one. The University Chorus had an ear for everything from singing telegrams to opera, and Christmas carols to classical music. The chorus started the year with a fall concert featuring sacred music by George Handel, Franz Schubert and other classical artists. Joining other University choirs, the chorus presented a Christmas concert that brought old favorites to all who attended. The choir tried something different in the spring they performed an operetta. Giving the operetta Macbeth was " more than just singing, it was acting also, " said Julie Weaver, " and that made it different and ex- citing. " For the operetta, the performers got to change their regular long dresses and tux- edos for costumes depicting the early Britain of Macbeth ' s time. To reward themselves for all the hard work they put into their music, the members had a big party after each concert. The par- ties became so popular that the group decid- ed to continue the festivities every Thursday after practice at the Union. The chorus wasn ' t all made up of Sinatras-to-be. On the contrary, students from all walks of life could audition. Sixty- five were chosen. The major requirement was simply a desire and ability to sing. An informal concert during the spring consisted of pieces from various musicals which helped to end the year on a good note. by Natalie Wyrick FIRST ROW: Mary Esther Daves, Marianne Alouise Brain, Sarah Lynn Guyton, Lisa Kay Sawyer, Elise Anne Smith, Leticia S.

And what ' s more, they dance too The Varsity Singers performed a variety of musical selections. From moving songs like " Impossible Dream, " from " Man of La Mancha " to the funny " Comedy Tonight " from " A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, " their musical selec- tions ranged from spiritual to jazz and pop. The 18 members of Varsity Singers were chosen based upon the results of a rigorous audition process. Applicants had to sight read, read scales and even dance. Unlike most choral groups, Varsity Singers in- tegrated dancing into some of their routines. When they performed music from the movie " New York, New York, " the singers incor- porated jazzy movements complete with a grand finale of chorus line kicks. Varsity Singers president Donald Devous felt that the group was special because " one is able to express their feelings about the music in- dividually, thus getting a lot of self-satisfaction. " In addition to entertaining the University community with concerts this year, the Singers also provided entertainment for ban- quets in the Austin area. They sang and danced for the Cattleman ' s Club on Nov. 9 and for the Texas Tax Assessors on Jan. 19. The group was especially busy March 23- 28 when they toured West Texas and New Mexico. Their itinerary included stops at San Angelo State University, Midland High School and Eastern New Mexico University. During the tour the Singers took time to ski the slopes of Taos. " We ' re a pretty close group to begin with, but touring definitely brings us closer, " said Devous. Under the direction of Dr. Andre Thomas, the members of Varsity Singers formed a close bond while working to main- tain high standards of musical performance. " I would give a lot of credit to Mr. Thomas, " said Karen Crawford.

According to choir members, there was no competition where music was concerned, unlike football. The combination concert with UT and A M was the second of its kind under the direction of Andre Thomas. " We want to involve as many women ' s choirs from different colleges as we can for more combined concerts, " said Thomas. Composing the choir was a group of 40 women with a wide range of interests; some music majors, some not. However, they all had one thing in common. They enjoyed singing and were willing to put forth special effort to perform concerts. Thomas felt that the members of the Women ' s Choir joined because it gave them " a sense of belonging. " " It provided an op- portunity for girls from small towns to become close friends, " he added. The repertoire consisted of music varying from classical pieces such as " Stabat Mater " by G. B. Pergolesi and pop songs such as " Send in the Clowns " by Steven Sondheim. " The important thing is that the girls simply like to sing, " said Thomas. The activities of the choir included con- certs for two local high schools, McCallum and Westlake, and a performance in the choral department ' s Christmas show, Dec. 5. Before preregistration at the Texas Union, the choir put on a short concert in efforts to recruit members for the fall semester. " This exposure to other students might spark an interest and then they might decide that they, too want to be a part of the choir, " said Thomas. The group also held bake sales and calendar sales to raise funds. Their social ac- tivities included a Sunday barbecue get together and a reception after each of their concerts. by Laura Krueger FIRST ROW: Kimberly Klein, Tamara Lynne Hedge, Debra Dee Steele, Sally Virginia Cassell, Haeyon Kim, Anastasia Marie Soltys, Elizabeth Ann Koplar, Marilyn Elaine Munj-er, Melissa Jane Miner, Debra Jean Lanius.

Women ' s Concert Choir 397 DANCE R COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM EACHING FOR THE STARS But keep one foot on the ground For dance enthusiasts who grew up emulating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers or being spellbound by Busby Berkeley musicals, all roads to fame and fortune led to one place: Hollywood. Although in most cases their ultimate goal was not to star on the silver screen, members of the Com- petitive Dance Team did travel to the West Coast to fulfill a dream competing in the U.S. Amateur Championships in March. Although entering that competition was important to team members in itself, they had another reason for wanting to enter. " We entered because it is the champion of the American contest that represents the U.S. in the World Championships, " said Susie Thompson, the manager of the group. The World Championships were held in Germany in late 1983. To prepare for the competition, in which any interested dance team could enter, they began practicing at the beginning of the spring semester. The team performed two main styles of dancing. " We did ballroom dances, which are more to Latin music, and we also did modern dances, which are done to things like classical music, " Thompson said. In general, the group competed in two different categories: couples and formations. Three pairs of dancers competed as couples, while the majority of the group composed the two formations. Formations, in which a group of 20 dancers performed a series of dances without stopping, took the team an average of one month to learn. In addition the team also entered the Texas Challenge in November, where they claimed first place. by Judy Ward D Ife ' tori - - Iq run Ac iitsoti- Tin fclklonco {ht kind to Dancers rehearse for couples competition.

The symbolism behind that undulation, however, was far more somber than the bright colors. The move- ment depicted the ocean waves that slaves saw on their way to Mexico. The flowing skirts of the Ballet Folklorico, then, were derived from African influences. The cultural origins of Mexican folkdance were a melange that produced distinctive regional styles of dance and costume. El Grupo de Danza y Arte Folklorico de la Universidad de Tejas sought to keep those traditions of dance alive and to promote an awareness of Mex- ico ' s rich culture as represented in dance. Mexican dances and costumes were characteristic of regional origins and they bore the influence of outside factors. For ex- ample, dances derived from the jota showed the strong influence of the Spanish flamen- co, which involves a great deal of footwork. In the area of the Texas-Mexico border, the polka and schottische movements were adapted to the music of the acoustic guitar and the cowboy style of dress resulted in the laced boots and simple fabrics. The area around Guadalajara produced what was considered the most popular form of the Folklorico. Lace, fitted dresses and full, colorful skirts represented the colonial era under Spain in Mexico. The costumes also represented the Mex- ican tradition of honoring some aspect of the environment by embroidering a picture of it into a costume. The colorful em- broidery of birds and flowers on Folklorico costumes were examples. El Grupo performed numerous times dur- ing 1982-83. They gave a Centennial perfor- mance May 2 in conjunction with El Comite Estudiantil Pro Centenario. They also per- formed a spring recital. Membership was open to any UT faculty, student body or staff who had an interest in promoting and preserving Mexican culture through dance. by Maureen Creamer Tess I.imon, Julie Ann Cruz, Teresa Maria Barren, Thomas Estrada, Norma Patricia Haynes, Michael Raye Carmona, Santa Catalina Yanez, Michael Estrada, Tami L.

Kegg added that all members of the ski team took advan- tage of the Aspen nightlife, which " tended to drain everyone ' s energy as well as pockets. " Everyone returned with great " Malibu beach " tans and with anxious an- ticipation of the spring break trip to Copper Mountain, Colorado. by Pat Vires R SKI CLUB OCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH Achieving that " Malibu Beach " tan Atop Snowmass Mountain in Aspen, Col- orado, members of the UT Ski Club ex- perienced their " most successful ski trip " when they brought home the Texas Cup after the Christmas holidays as a result of their finish in the Nastar races. Sponsored by the Texas Ski Council, the contest allowed 381 UT students to take advantage of the af- fordable ski package. The $250 package in- cluded a six-day lift ticket, accommodations for a week along with other freebies from the sponsors. The package did not include food, ski rental or transportation to Col- orado. So many people were interested in the trip that officers of the UT Club approached other ski clubs in Texas and bought the places that they had not filled. To achieve first place, the team ac- cumulated 3,838 points while their nearest and biggest competitors, the Space City Ski Club from Houston, had 2,985 points. The Texas Cup found a permanent home at the University of Texas in 1983 when the team earned the right to keep the trophy by win- ning the contest for the third consecutive year. Each skier accumulated points by finishing the course without knocking over any of the flags. The number of UT skiers that finished the race helped determine the winner of the Texas Cup. UT won five silver medals and 22 bronze medals, which con- tributed to the team ' s overall point total. The purpose of the UT Ski Club was to offer the fun of skiing and social interaction between members, and provided the chance to attend ski trips at a reasonable rate. Since any UT student or faculty member could join during the spring or fall membership drives, the only requirement this club had was " the love of a good time, " said Terry Kegg. From freshmen to faculty, the Ski Club had them all. Kegg considered this a probable reason for the club ' s standing as the largest organization on campus. On Oct. 12, the Ski Club held their annual Ski Fest, a sign-up time, in which more than 250 people signed up for the Christmas trip. In addition, the 40 openings were filled for the Thanksgiving trip to Keystone Moun- tain in Colorado. Fellow skiers also swapped ski stories, drank beer and competed for door prizes that ranged from goggles to sweaters. At the Roommate Party on Nov. 30 in the Coors Hospitality Room at the Coors Distributing Plant, the Aspen-bound skiers got acquainted with the individual who would be sharing their room in the con- dominium for the week. After the ski club reflected on their trips, Kegg said they considered the most memorable trip the one to Snowmass. Not only did they ski competitively, but the UT skiers enjoyed the Coors hospitality daily, Skiers Ed Prato and Fred Becker take a break to sit back, catch some rays and sip on a cool drink 400 Ski Club Ski team members Larry Schubert and John Chumney hold high the 9-liter bottle of Charbaut Fils champagne the team won at the Nastar races in Aspen, Colorado The Rocky Mountains paint a beautiful backdrop for the UT Ski Team as they take time out of their busy day of skiing at Snowmass Mountain, Colorado Ski Club 401 SPORTS F UNIVERSITY FLYING CLUB LYING THE WRIGHT WAY Soaring high with the UT aces " Ooo . . . aah! " " Everything looks like ants from up here! " " It ' s beautiful I can see the whole campus! " These comments reflected the awe of UT students and faculty who accepted the in- vitation to soar through the Austin skies in planes piloted by members of the UT Flying Club. Made available to all interested UT people, a $10 fee was collected for the 30- minute flight as a means for raising funds. Any member of the student body, faculty or staff, whether a beginner or experienced commercial pilot, was eligible to join the club on a first come, first served basis. Although some flyers were qualified pilots, some had never seen the inside of a cockpit before joining the club. Membership was kept below 60 to insure availability of the club ' s three airplanes located north of Austin at Tim ' s Airport off Dessau Road. " Right now we have one new plane, " ex- plained UFC president, Todd Garrett. " But we hope to replace the two older ones with brand new planes by the end of this year. " Among area tournaments the club attend- ed, the UFC met with A M on Dec. 5 in Hearne to compete against Aggie pilots in " spot landing " and " flour bombing. " In each event, a designated target was agreed upon. In spot landing, a pilot had to land his plane as near the target area as was possible. In flour bombing, a team of two went up. One team member maneuvered the plane, while the second member released a sack of white flour over the point marked below. " The most popular trip we take all year is our annual ' beach party weekend. ' We all fly down to Port Aransas for a weekend in the middle of March, " said Garrett. In addition to monthly meetings which featured guest speakers, films and seminars of UFC interest, the club trained students for certification as private pilots, commercial pilots and flight instructors. by Miles Fain FIRST ROW: Todd Gerard Smith, Cary Don Lindley.

A warm breeze ruffles your hair as the sun shines down upon Lake Travis. As you sail over the gentle waves, the cool spray splashes on your face. Sounds inviting, doesn ' t it? The L ' T Sailing Club reinacted this blissful scene every Saturday at Lake Travis in 1982-83. Through rain or stormy weather, the club persevered and sailed on. The Sailing Club (UTSC) was founded in 1970 by a handful of interested students who had only one boat which had been donated to The University. Since then the club has grown to include more than 200 members and a fleet of 20 boats. A common devotion to sailing and camaraderie bound the members of the UT Sailing Club together. The goal of these sailors was to teach all interested students, faculty and staff members of The University the skills and rules involved in sailing. This instruction was conducted in a zany manner by club members themselves using a card- board sailboat and a teddy bear. Club novices were taught basic skills by the First Rear Commodore, the club ' s second-in-command. After passing a written and a skills test, the novices were promoted to the rank of crew. The crews were then tested for seamanship on one of the club ' s sailboats. Passing the test resulted in a pro- motion to advanced crew. Subsequent tests propelled members to the rank of seaman, and finally enabled members to achieve the coveted rank of skipper. Club members (according to rank) had the privilege of taking out one of the club ' s sailboats during the week (weekends were reserved for club activities). Every Saturday was devoted to a sailing trip or campout to Arkansas Bend on Lake Travis. Partying and social get-togethers were also a major part of the Sailing Club agenda. The club hosted approximately four parties per semester, culminating with a formal Commodore ' s Ball in the fall and a theme party in the spring. The Commodore ' s Ball was held on Dec. 4 at the Old Pecan Street Cafe. Spring officers were announced and plaques were presented to the fall officers. UTSC also bused its members to Elgin for a club picnic and barbecue. Club members planned to continue prac- ticing their sailing skills during the summer through more sailing trips and campouts. The Sailing Club believed that its most important service to the University com- munity was the sailing lessons it gave to new members. Both the proper instruction and the lasting friendship provided by the club gave all the sailors many rewarding ex- periences. Patty Murphy, a Sailing Club member, said " The UT Sailing Club was a terrific organization. It ' s a great opportunity for all of us outdoor lovers to get together and spend the day at the lake and enjoy the excitement of sailing. " by Laura Flores FIRST ROW: Howard Joseph Murphy.

Sailing Club 403 SPORTS JUDO CLUB PEOPLE IN WHITE SUITS With contrasting belts " You ' re choking me! " " Tap out! " " Never! " " Tap Out! " Thump, thump, thump. Any health enthusiast on his way to work out in Bellmount Hall might have heard such thumping as this as he hurried past room 966 between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m. any Monday, Wednesday or Friday when the University of Texas Judo Club worked out. Kicking and hitting are both aspects seen in karate however, these are not allowed in judo. " It ' s all in ' leverage ' ... the object is to get the person off balance, " explained Judo Club President Ed Burbach. " Op- ponents can perform various kinds of throws and choke holds. You can also go to the mat and pin your opponent to win the match you can ' t do that in karate, " he con- tinued. Once in a choke hold, an opponent has the option of " tapping out, " (signaling to the referee that he cannot break the hold), and forfeiting the match, or the opponent can struggle. Since a match could be won in a matter of seconds when a " perfect " throw was ex- ecuted, learning and practicing judo techni- ques in throwing were of key importance. If the throw was performed with flawless form and followed with the desired impact, the official might have stopped the contest and Members of the Judo Club had a special way of celebrating the heritage from which their sport came. At each out- door gathering they would raise their saki cups high and toast each other and the 100-year-old " gentle way " judo. declared a winner. Otherwise, the winning contestant was the one with the highest total of the number of points assigned to each in- dividual move by the official. Students of judo were rewarded for their progress by a ceremony promoting them to a higher rank. Beginners wear white belts and are presented with " higher " belts of dif- ferent colors until they reach the expertise required to merit a promotion to black, the most prestigious belt. In addition to their fall social on Sept. 25 and the spring social on Feb. 4, when members cooked out, played volleyball and got to know each other better, the club sponsored the sales of judo books, club pat- ches and judo gis (uniforms). The club also provided the co-ed University community with judo techniques that could be applied to self defense in other areas. In 1981, the team claimed the Texas State Collegiate Championship in competition with other college judo clubs in Snyder and sent two of its members to the U.S. Col- legiate Championships in 1982. Debbie and Aaron Lorin, sister and brother, won first and third place titles, respectively. Although there were seven black belts and other title holders in the club, beginners were welcome, and could often be seen working out with the team during one of their regular practice sessions. They were en- couraged to participate along with the other 10 to 15 belts that began on the team every semester. by Miles Fain FIRST ROW: Melissa Kay Long, Aaron Ernest Lorin, Lorel Margaret Scott, Susan Mary Roberts, Deborah Jean Lorin, Kamal S.

FUN . . . till the oil slicks come in from the sea The ocean seems to go on forever with nothing daring to disturb its peaceful rhythm. Yet in the distance, one spots a lonely soul walking on the water. Skillfully maneuvering every trick that the oversized body of water displays, he tries to master the tide and claim victory. It ' s that thrill of cat- ching a wave and hanging on to it that gives people an incredible high and keeps their great passion for surfing alive. Reveling in the mystique created by the television drama " Dallas, " and stereotypical characters like Matt Houston, Texans were proud of their western heritage. If you had ventured down south to the Texas coast dur- ing the 1983 spring semester, you could have observed University of Texas students toss- ing off their hats and exchanging their tradi- tional western wear for flower-print tops and surfer baggies. Attired in this fasion, they manipulated sleek surfboards over the Gulf Coast waves. Collectively, these were the water nymphs of the University of Texas Surfing Association. A 50-member group with academic in- terests ranging from education to law, the Surfing Association held meetings every two weeks on Wednesdays at the Texas Union and during the meetings they discussed fund-raising projects. Selling Texas T-shirts and jackets on the West Mall helped their group pay for their " surfing safari " to Mex- ico in the spring. The " safari " was when the group members got together and it was like " taking off on a long trip, " said Paul Hatridge, the club ' s president. Selling the wearing apparel also gave members an opportunity to recruit new surfers. Members brought pictures and home movies of surfing from all over the world to meetings for the entire group to view. The Association sent a team of surfers to Corpus Christ! for competition or traveled to Port Isabel for a day in the waves as often as it possibly could. The Association was organized in the spring of 1981 by Dan Parker and Steve Lacy. Steve Simmons, club treasurer, said the Association " provides a means for those who grew up in a surfing atmosphere to maintain that atmosphere while still pursuing an education. " Hatridge believed the club was a " good outlet for everyone in Austin to get into the surfing scene. " by Risa Turken FIRST ROW: Paul Eric Hatridge, Robert Hale Oden, Stephen Barclay Simmons.

Surfing Association 405 SPORTS F WATERSKI TEAM ISH CROSSING AHEAD Just slaloming around It was 6:30 a.m. and 50 outside as a UT student pulled on his wetsuit and slid into the water. A slightly choked voice yelled, " Hit it " to the boat driver and they were off to a morning of skiing. This was a daily routine for some members of the waterski team. It took not only skill, but also a lot of dedication from members to be part of The University of Texas Waterski Team. The team worked year-round promoting and practicing skiing. They attended tour- naments on the weekends during the ski season, which ran into both the fall and spring. Ending with the national tournament in Montgomery, Alabama on Oct. 16, the main competitive season was the fall and it ran from September to mid-October. Begin- ning in March and lasting through May, the spring competition was primarily for prac- tice. The season ended with the All-Star Tournament at Tri-Lakes, Louisiana, during which only top skiers from each conference in the United States were eligible to ski. Baylor, Southwest Texas State University, Southern Methodist University, Texas A M, North Texas State University and other schools from Oklahoma and Louisiana provided plenty of competition for the waterski team during each season. The waterski team faced the challenge presented by these schools, scheduling daily practices and workshops at nearby lakes. They combined their daily practices with dedication, skill and enthusiasm and came up with a winner. In the 1982 season, UT took second place in the Southwestern Con- ference Regionals in Monroe, Louisiana, on Oct. 2, enabling them to go to the Inter- Collegiate National Tournament. Only two teams from each conference were allowed to go to nationals. In the history of inter- collegiate waterskiing, there had been only four national tournaments and The Universi- ty waterski team had qualified and skied in all four. UT placed fifth at the Fourth An- nual National Tournament. The University ' s team membership was built up through tryouts held at the begin- ning of each semester. New members were required to be registered as full-time students and to have had some previous ex- perience. The three areas of competition were slalom, trick-skiing and jumping. A person could ski any one to three of these events. For tournament purposes, individual team ranking was determined by weekly tryouts held during practice sessions at Lake Dunlap in New Braunfels. To the waterski team, waterskiing was not a seasonal sport. The team kept busy year- round. Its main emphasis in the spring was the Annual Spring Tournament on Town Lake which was sponsored by the UT water- ski team members. The tournament was held during Round-Up weekend. The team was responsible for setting up all of the activities, plus providing the entertainment. The tour- nament consisted of all three events and at- tracted many skiers and spectators. The revenue gained from this tournament, along with semester dues, enabled the team to sup- port itself throughout the year. Since the NCAA did not recognize water- skiing as a varsity sport, the waterski team was registered with the Recreational Sports office which limited the funding from The University. Team members supplied their own equipment. by Christie Lambert FIRST ROW: Cynthia A.

(preferrably dub- bed, " Killer " ). " Our goal is to strengthen the team and to find better competition, " explained Wrestling Club President Martin Muller. " Without the varsity status that ' s hard to do, " he said. When asked how he compared late-night wrestling with collegiate wrestling, Muller said " Oh, no, no ... I wouldn ' t even call that wrestling really. If you were to pick someone up in the air like they do and slam ' em down on a real mat, not one with springs under it, you ' d probably break their back. You can ' t do crud like that in real wrestling. " In addition to slamming, the collegiate style of wrestling also forbade stalling for time, pulling hair and isolating a single finger for manipulation of an opponent. " Sleeper holds " and metal folding chairs used as aids in obtaining dominance during the late night television matches were strictly off limits. An official match consisted of three rounds, each scored by a referee who as- signed positive marks to a wrestler for well- executed escapes and offensive moves, and who penalized for violations incurred during the match. The first round began with opponents facing each other in a standing position. The second and third began with both men on the mat, each having his opportunity to start out in the on-top position in one of the two rounds. Once the referee blew his whistle, the goal of each wrestler was to gain com- plete control over his opponent, or " pin " him, and keep him in this position for one to two seconds. The winner of a match was not necessarily the one who pinned his oppo- nent, however, but the one who ac- cumulated the highest score.

Apparently, not many members of the UT Wrestling Team aspired to enter the profes- sional wrestling arena after the 1983 season but who could tell what the future held for these young athletes? by Miles Fain Although several team members had wrestled as many years as he had, one member of the wrestling team surged forth with extra determination in spite of his handicap. Stephen Breedlove, senior, was not only " something else to watch wrestle, " according to a team- mate, he also had to keep in contact with his opponents more than other wrestlers. Breedlove enjoyed wrestling despite the absence of his sight. The referee raises the hand of Dave Genecov to signal his victory to the crowd.

They didn ' t realize that bowling was another competitive varsity sport. But it was and the Longhorn bowling team found themselves in the Sectional Tournament in Ft. Worth on April 8 and 9. Sectional was a tournament where six schools competed for a spot at na- tionals. UT qualified two teams for the 16- game tournament by winning the Texas In- tercollegiate Bowling Conference. This conference was organized so that UT bowled against teams in South Texas: Texas A M, University of Houston, Rice, Southwest Texas and Texas Southern University in a league format during the fall. In a series of meets, each school bowled against each other twice with the winner determined by point totals. In the men ' s divi- sion, the UT white team placed first, SWT placed second and the UT orange team placed third. The UT women ' s team also placed first. According to Robert Golden, president, only one team per division could represent The University at Sectionals. " We ' re one of the best teams right now, but we ' ve got to prove it, " Mike Sands said. The bowling team was able to prove this with a win at Sectionals which advanced them to Nationals, where a field of 12 teams competed for places from across the coun- try. Texas was ranked in the top 20 because of their standings in conference play, team averages and tournament finishes. Their rankings, determined by a commit- tee of sportswriters, were based on each team ' s statistics. Their first and third finishes in TIBC and their showing in the Walt Peabody Invitational in Las Vegas, Nevada, during Christmas helped in the rankings. At the Las Vegas tournament, UT ' s white team placed eighth and the orange team placed 28th out of a field of 63. While some considered bowling a varsity sport, it did not receive the funding and sup- port from the University that other varsity sports on campus received. The University viewed the team as a sports club, said Golden. To alleviate traveling expenses, the team held a bowl-a-thon on Dec. 5. Members received pledges from sponsors and then they were paid according to their bowling scores. They also had a 50 t ticket raffle for a bowling ball. by Pat Vires FIRST ROW: Arthur Ray Morton, Guy Matthew Lindberg, Jerry Christopher Von Sternberg, Robert Herman Golden, Robert Joseph Glaser, Michael Charles Sands.

In the tunnels that run across the Univer- sity campus and through the foothills of Austin, " the giant armadillo of Texas " was believed to have roamed. Convinced that the armadillo ' s waste deposits were responsible for the huge natural gas sources in Texas, several students decided to pool their efforts and locate the giant armadillo. They called themselves the Dinosaurs Underground Natural Gas Sources or DUNGS. Realizing that it could take years to find the giant armadillo, the DUNGS concen- trated their attention on completing their degree programs without losing their sanity and went on armadillo safaris in their spare time. " We are all good friends with common interests. We help each other out, sponsor parties and have fun doing so. We formed a club that would provide us with these social and academic qualities, " President Daniel Small wood said. In order to keep the group functioning as a study aid, all members had to be enrolled in Petroleum Engineering 430, drilling and well completions. This require- ment provided members with group study sessions during which they helped each other with the assignments for the course. Excellent character and leadership were fur- ther requirements for membership. To enhance the DUNGS ' partying and socialization, monthly meetings were held at Uncle Nasty ' s during happy hour. Upholding the DUNGS spirit, a barbecue- waterski party was held in April on Lake Austin. The party provided members with an action-packed day filled with fun, skiing and socializing. Although DUNGS was a new group at UT, members had aspirations of making it a state-wide organization. The officers were successful in promoting the DUNGS organization at the University of Houston in the fall of 1982 when a former DUNGS member transferred to the school. The grueling coursework of engineering and the considerable amount of partying the group did, did not allow much time for their original purpose. However, in years to come members planned to continue the search for the giant armadillo which had captured their curiosity. by Christie Lambert FIRST ROW: John Barton Harris, Alan Lee Roberson.

EARLY TO RISE Campus political gather for mi gas and amigos Shivering in their PJs, teddy bears in hand and bunny slippers on their feet, Cisco ' s Kids struck out for their first morning rendezvous of 1982-83 at Cisco ' s Bakery on East Sixth Street. Boudoir fashion was the theme and it ranged from the traditional designer drop-bottom pajamas complete with feet, to lacy black satin negligees. But Cisco ' s Kids walked boldly through the front room of the Mexican bakery while businessmen who had stopped in for a cup of coffee looked on in amazement. The scene changed from Thursday to Thursday, when students from every part of University life came together to " promote fellowship at UT while increasing en- thusiasm for campus events. " After in- troductions and viewing of costumes, the Kids discussed upcoming events or issues. Before students departed for th e library or classes, they chose a theme for the next Cisco ' s. Themes ranged from the traditional Beat OU Cisco ' s to the bizarre Punk Rock Cisco ' s; members dressed accordingly. One might wonder why these students sacrificed their precious sleep for huevos rancheros and migas at 7:00 a.m. every other Thursday morning. " Sometimes I think I ' m crazy, but I enjoy it enough to make it worthwhile, " said Trevor Pearlman, a Cisco ' s Kid. " It ' s stimulating and creative to interact with an incredible variety of students, " he added. Julia Dykes liked to go " to be with spirited Longhorns.

Inside, one finds a group of students " releasing their tensions about school. " Yet, this was no ordinary group of students. It was the Texas Tri Ts. Although sipping one of Jaime ' s margaritas was a regular occurrence to a Tri T, the idea for the Texas Tri Ts originated over a drink at Chelsea ' s Street Pub. The founders, Ted, Tim and Todd, were drinking Texas teas (a concoction of rum, tequila, triple sec, vodka and Coke), when they decided that they would form a club. The first letter of each founder ' s name and the fact that they were drinking Texas teas provided the group with its name. The group was formed to give them " a good excuse to drink. " With a membership of 55, the Tri Ts selected pledges for this " funternity " based on their knowledge of the basic principles of drinking etiquette and social appeal. Prospective Ts were nominated by actives with their pledgeships lasting one semester. Highlights for the pledge included frequent margarita mixers with actives at Jaime ' s. The Tri Ts had " little sisters " who were better known as the T-spoons to the men of Tri Ts. Selected according to the same re- quirements as Tri Ts, 10 new T-spoons joined the veteran T-spoons for the weekly margarita festivities dur ing the fall of 1982. The Tri Ts started off their social func- tions of the year with a " goodbye to sum- mer, welcome the fall margarita party " at Jaime ' s. Besides their biweekly happy hour functions, the Ts decided to " try to go out and do something different " according to Greg Boegner, president. So, they grabbed some six packs and went horseback riding on Oct. 27. The Christmas plaid formal was the highlight of the fall semester. The only requirement the Ts enforced was for every member to wear plaid. This theme, ex- plained Tim Thomas, was a chance for the Ts to continue to " try to be different. " Founder ' s Day, which was held on Jan. 25, and the Spring Florida Frolic kept the Tri Ts busy during the spring semester. During the summer, the Tri Ts assembled in Sweetwater for the second annual West Texas Cowchip Extravaganza. This get-together allowed Tri Ts a chance to celebrate during the summer months and watch the activities during the annual event. Adding " new dimensions " to social rela- tionships, the Tri Ts saw themselves as " UT ' s new tradition.

" These chants could be heard coming from the Bored Martyrs as they held the final round of their presidential election. That the Bored Martyrs chose their president based on the results of a beer chugging contest was not unusual since the club was conceived by a group of drinking buddies a generation ago when they decided to create a formal drinking club. Composed of women from six campus sororities Kappa Alpha Theta, Pi Beta Phi, Chi Omega, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Delta Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha the group chose new members by democratic vote each semester. Each soror- ity was limited to five inductees in the fall and 10 in the spring. While a certain skill in drinking was re- quired for membership, leadership skills were also considered by the group when voting in new members. " You ' re not going to be tapped in if you don ' t drink, " said Bonnie Baker, president, " but you ' re not go- ing to be tapped in if you don ' t participate in your sorority, too. " When tapped in, however, group members were required to chug " several pitchers of beer, " according to Baker. " You can ' t just drink it, though, you have to chug it. " Named as a spoof on Mortar Board, the senior honorary society, Bored Martyrs represented a rebellion against those people who spend all of their time studying, ex- plained Baker. Bored Martyrs met on the first Wednesday of each month at Scholz Beer Garten, the organization ' s original meeting place. This was the night out with the girls and their favorite brew. The group highlighted their spring for- mal, to which they came dressed in blue jeans and casual blouses. After the girls and their dates got together at their apartments for a few drinks, they went out for dancing and a little more drinking. by Risa Turken FIRST ROW: Sheila Thcrcse Parro, Barbara Louise Towne, Stephanie Marie McLaughlin, Frances Callan.

' - ' 414 Bored Martyrs SOCIAL TEXAS COWGIRLS NDEDBYTHELITE Flashing is only a state of mind " Heifers, what ' s a heifer? " In traditional cowpoke language it is a young cow, especially one that has had a calf. However, to the Texas Cowgirls, the term t ook on a different meaning. " Heifers " were their pledges which were chosen in the fall. To be eligible for membership, a candidate had to be at least a sophomore, be nominated by another Cowgirl, have at least a 0.00 GPA and drink massive quantities of beer. Finally, they could not get two or more " boom " or rejection votes and above everything else they could not flash. Flash? This was the Cowgirls ' term for passing out after consum- ing the average of two sixers in one evening. In 1982, there were approximately 140 Cowgirls with two presidents, Tessa Gusemano and Susan Stillwell. The only other officers were " corral leaders " from each sorority whose job was to notify other Cowgirls in their house of upcoming events. On Oct. 21, 70 heifers were tapped-in at the Mustang statue. Heifers were called down to claim their bandanas, which were the trademark of their membership. After this ceremony, the herd mosied on down to the Posse where Miller Brewers sponsored the beer for t heir celebration and spirits. The Cowgirls rounded up for two main functions during the year. They held their fall casual at the Figi Club on Nov. 20. They also had a Spring Formal. At the formal they were decked out in the finest cocktail dresses adorned with all the trappings of true cowpokes: boots, bandanas and hats. The Texas Cowgirls has grown rapidly after independents became involved in 1980. For Gusemano the greatest enjoyment deriv- ed from the group was " being able to drink, raise hell and have a good time with the peo- ple that we ' re with.

SOT was officially declared a University club that month. " It started out as a joke and people thought it was really cute, " Stearns said. " Since there were three letters in the word, we decided to go ahead and put it to Greek letters, " she added. " We have a loosely organized sorority. There are no dues, no meetings and no special initiation. We ' re just a group of girls that likes to have a good time. We ' re just a party sorority, " said Kendall, SOT president. Unlike some other organizations, Sigma Omega Tau remained a small group of women. Numbering 14 in 1982-83, member- ship fell after many members graduated and moved away. " We ' re happy being a small group, " said Kendall. " It makes for a lot more close friendships. " New SOT members Amber Calvert and Holly Webster ap- preciated the club ' s size, saying women benefited from the close companionship. " A small group enables everyone to get to know everyone else, " Calvert said. Another advan- tage for prospective members was the group ' s casual organization. Instead of an organized rush period, admittance into the group was informal. In search of good food and plenty of fun, the women traveled to Quihi, Texas in the summer of 1982 for the annual chili cook- off. Although SOT was competing against more experienced groups, the women managed to win first place. A change in their recipe from the summer before was the key to their victory. " Last year we put beer in it and it didn ' t go over too well, " Kendall said. " So this year we left it out. " The first semester all-nighter came early in the fall. A Welcome Back Pajama Party hail- ed the start of school for members and friends at the Kingsgate Apartments party room. The SOTs managed to make the even- ing anything but boring. " It started out as a regular pajama party, " Kendall said, " but it turned into a swim and dance party. " During the spring semester Sigma Omega Tau held its annual banquet for members only. Following tradition, the gathering was at Jorge ' s on Sixth Street. The evening began with the women indulging themselves on Mexican food and margaritas to celebrate the year ' s conclusion. Throughout the year, the SOT ' S were unable to participate in too many of the club ' s favorite activities, parties. However, they did manage several " spontaneous " par- ties whenever possible. Amber Calvert ex- plained, " We would just call up the members and agree to meet over at Kathy ' s to just sit and gab a lot. " As for general Sigma Omega Tau activities, " This year was pretty dead we decided to study instead, " said Stearns. " Since we ' re supposed to be graduating soon, we figured we ought to get working, " she concluded. by Anne Eby . " ,:.

Bet you ' re as glad to be back here at ol ' Simkins as I am, aren ' t you? " he said with a chuckle. " ' Home sweet home, ' " he said as he put some of his prized possessions on the shelf. " Well, how was your summer? Did you go anywhere interesting or did you just sun and surf at Padre? You sure are lucky to live close by there! " " I guess I am. It was an average summer, partied and went to the coast a lot. " " Well, that sounds like a lot of fun, but nothing beats being back here and preparing to hit the books, huh? " " No, it sure isn ' t. I ' m already anticipating spring break. " " Anyway, how did you end up doing last semester? Did those later-nighters we pulled do any good? " " Yeah, they helped. Ended up with a 3.0. " " I got a 3.5, isn ' t that a miracle? You know what? We should organize an honor society here at Simkins. " " That ' s not a bad idea, let ' s see what everyone else thinks. " So, a group of 13 residents of Simkins Hall formed Phi Delta Sigma. Patterned after Phi Beta Kinsolving, Phi Delta Sigma ' s purpose was to recognize academically outstanding residents of Simkins Hall and to serve as a social organization, according to Thomas Trahan, vice president. The criteria for membership required that a resident achieve a semester GPA of at least a 3.0 and then, be approved by two-thirds of the members. After initiation, members must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Included among the activities for the year was a Christmas party held in the home of Dean Thomas Hatfield. Hatfield, who served as dean of Continuing Education, became the sponsor of the organization. Since Phi Delta Sigma was a new organization on campus, they were " just get- ting started and attempting one thing at a time, " said Trahan. One accomplishment was choosing little sisters. After a nomina- tion process, Phi Delta Sigma members selected nine little sisters, who were chosen primarily from Kinsolving and Littlefield dorms. Each little sister had a single rose delivered to her from the president, Brian Powell, upon acceptance as a Phi Delta Sigma little sister. by Pat Vires FIRST ROW: Todd Jason Kibler, Carlos Duane Salinas, Brian Hill Powell, Stephen Rodriguez Flores, Phillip Craig Keslin.

HAIL: WE ' RE ALL HERE Proper young scholars yearn to escape reality In 1974, several students felt a need to escape from everyday life, a need to " get away from it all. " This need led to the for- mation of a group who appropriately chose to call themselves " The Getaways. " The Getaways were composed of active and inactive members of Sigma Alpha Mu social fraternity. Founded by Kenny Baum and Joel Denbo, the original two member " party group " had grown to a membership of 24 by the fall of 1982. Qualification for membership was based on several factors involving scholastic stan- ding and personality. Members had to be enrolled in the University and had to main- tain a GPA of .69 or above. New members, were required to par- ticipate in an initiation process known as " Hell Minute. " Hell Minute was devised as a solution to overcome the hassles of hazing while still allowing an initiation process of new members. They decided that one push- up, one sit-up and one jumping jack would provide strenuous physical activity without harming their pledges. Over the years the Getaways had started a few traditions unique to their group. One was their sacred handshake used to greet members and another was the fact that they always parked their cars backwards to insure " quick getaways " whenever necessary. The major social events for the year in- cluded both a casual and a formal. The theme of the 1982 casual was " Suppressed Desires, " allowing members to do whatever they desired. The formal was a Hawaiian luau and " formal " meant flowered Hawaiian shirts. by Suzy Schroeder V.

Members of the Crow ' s Nest, a cooperative house started in 1948 for selected Navy ROTC men, would pull a prank by sitting around in the parking lot and showing X-rated flicks on the restaurant ' s outside wall. They would then riot with laughter at the expressions of the shocked passersby. Freshman in Navy ROTC who were look- ing for a less expensive alternative to Univer- sity housing would pledge to the Crow ' s Nest. But they weren ' t called pledges; they were " pukes. " Not only were they subject to verbal abuse, but the pledges also had to sur- vive a tough spring initiation, the details of which were known only to veteran members. The Crow ' s Nest had three main annual parties which were open to members of the Crow ' s Nest and friends, other Navy ROTC men, and the Anchorettes, which was a women ' s social and spirit organization for the Navy ROTC unit. The parties were the Beginning of the Year Party, the Christmas Party and the Vernal Eqiunox Party. Birthdays were also special occasions at the Crow ' s Nest. They were celebrated with a " pool offense. " The honored Nester was dragged to a nearby swimming pool and dumped in, usually with a puke or two. In a superficial sense, the Crow ' s Nest was not what most people would consider a textbook example of military life. That was because these men, when they had a chance, showed their lighter side. But deeper sen- timents were expressed by Crow ' s Nest Vice President Craig Turner. " The best thing about the Crow ' s Nest since it is a Navy ROTC co-op, is that it is better acclimated toward Navy ROTC life. You get extra training. People have a better feel for the Navy and ROTC program in general. The serious side is learning to adjust to military life learning to give and to take orders.

The single thread that ties these works together is actor Slim Pickens. Members of " The " Slim Pickens Fan Club believed that Pickens ' per- formances demonstrated a versatility and depth that few actors could equal. The club formed in the fall of 1982 when Pickens was hospitalized for a brain tumor. Concerned students sent him get-well cards and gifts. A friendly correspondence sprang up between Pickens and the students. As the number of devoted Pickens fans began to grow, interested students formed " THE " Slim Pickens Fan Club. Pickens recovered, but the Fan Club went on. They got together whenever the mood hit to " watch his movies, drink Lite beer and talk Pickens, " said Vice President James " Lumberjack " Dowdy. With some 40 vice presidents and no secretary, treasurer or president, " The " Pickens Fan Club felt that this type of leadership eliminated any feelings of in- feriority or superiority among members. The requirements for membership were also for- mulated with this attitude in mind. A taste for Lite beer was one of the " rigid " requirements. Other requirements were having at least $5 to pay for the Lite beer, and of course, a love for Pickens. GPA requirements were strict: you had to have one. Members were allowed 12 million black marks which were accumulated by saying something nasty about Pickens, before they were shown the door and their names were never spoken again. If you were poor, you were only allowed three million marks. Early in the year, the club submitted a name for a new building on campus to the Board of Regents. The name was " The Slim Pickens Teaching Center. " Apparently not appreciative of the qualities of Pickens, the Board of Regents threw the suggestion out. Slim Pickens may not be a Humphrey Bogart or a John Wayne, but to his fans he was j ust as special. by Natalie Wyrick % . - D.E LEY 6 FIRST ROW: Loman D.

After the graduation of Gill in May 1982, 35 residents established the Glen- neddie Fan Club as a tribute to Gill and his deeds at UT, which were not only for himself, but for others. Serving as an RA for two years, Gill had " the power to motivate " said Shawn Smith, one of the organizers. According to Smith, Gill could get people to realize that they were not just a number, but that they could play an important part at UT. Through a floor newspaper, Gill would let everyone know what was happening such as campus elections, membership drives in organiza- tions such as the Texas Union, and he en- couraged them to get involved. Many peo- ple that Gill influenced became ensconced in different aspects of University life. Because the Glenneddie Fan Club was still in the initial stages of development, the group only managed a few social activities during the fall semester. In October, the group had a " Welcome Back Glenn Eddie " party when Gill returned from his new job at Ogilvy and Mather, an advertising firm in New York. As the word spread over Jester that " Glenn ' s coming back, " both curiosity and excitement filled the air. At Christmas Glenneddie members planned a fan club mailout. Their goal was to " send massive amounts " of mail to Gill. Because his new advertising job was so demanding, members wanted him to know that his friends at The University were still thinking about him. During the spring, the club held a " Glenn Eddie Tribute " party. The major theme of this mixer was the Glenn Eddie look-a-like contest. Smith explained that Gill liked to dress " preppie " he was the preppiest skoal dipper they ever knew. Looking toward the future, Glenneddie members planned to change the group ' s em- phasis from social to honorary. The club would recognize leadership skills of people who would not normally be recognized, the " out in the middle crowd, " which Smith said Gill represented. by Pat Vires FIRST ROW: Matthew Wade Welch, James Edmund Baum, Timothy Lee Pujol, John Murray Greenwood III, Sheryl Inger Koester.

In October, ADS members rented a room in a cheap hotel, donned tuxedos and tennis shoes and danced the night away at the an- nual ADS Phony Formal. Like the Stoics of ancient Greece, ADS ridiculed the conven- tions of society. In November, ADS held a dinner banquet with a simulated UT Board of Regents. The group, organized in 1980, climaxed 1982-83 in May with a " Joan of Arc Weenie Roast " at Bastrop Park. ADS members did not spend all their time in such playful parodies of social con- ventions. " We emphasize the importance of having a good time together, " said President Buddy Francese, " but we also promote University and community service. Doing things for others is fun for us, too. " Ever mindful of the unconventional, ADS set out to help the people others seemed to overlook. One such group of people was the students at Casis Elementary, a bilingual elementary school in Austin. On Halloween, the group dressed up in costumes and played games with the children. They brought a pinata filled with candy which the children enjoyed breaking. ADS went back to the school prior to Christmas vacation, this time dressed as Santa Claus and his merry elves. Santa Claus held each child on his knee and asked them what they wanted for Christmas.

The in- tention of the group to give their contest a unique emphasis was evident in the name, Jamilla, which was Swahili for " beauty. " As club member Gail Anderson said of their purpose, " It is intended to show beauty beyond the concept of what is considered the ' traditional American beauty. ' " This year marked the fourth annual Miss Jamilla Pageant sponsored by the Jewel Club and the Jester Student Association. Black women competed in areas of talent, sports, formal wear and impromptu questioning for the beauty title. Along with the traditional roses and crown, the winner also received a trophy and a dinner certificate for two at the Magic Time Machine. Afterwards, a recep- tion was held in the Jester Piano lounge to honor all of the contestants and recognize their talents and achievements. The Jewel Club originated in 1977 as little sisters to the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. The women had since separated from Greek af- filiation, forming a club designed for the promotion of brotherhood and sisterhood among the black students at UT as well as for providing service in the community. President Sikini Lee explained, " The group is small and so as sisters, we have all benefited from the close friendships. " A predominantly black organization, the club held a two-week initiation period in which rushees were required to organize a university project such as an open-campus, informal discussion. The initiates also ar- ranged a dance show for the club actives. As Jewel members, the women were expected to strive for excellence in womanhood, education and longevity of sisterhood. In October, the Jewel Club worked with the Black Student Alliance and campus fraternities to sponsor a Halloween carnival. Centered in the Jester piano lounge, 20 children from the Texas Baptist Children ' s Home in Round Rock were invited for a day of games, prizes and trick-or-treating on the second and third floors of Jester West. Other community service projects includ- ed a March of Dimes collection in the fall and a clothing drive in November to benefit area churches. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the club participated in a Jester- wide food basket campaign to aid needy families during the holidays. Empty boxes were placed outside many resident assistants ' doors for wing members to fill with canned goods. Club vice president Janet Owens commented, " Donations went well. I just wish we could have done more. " A red-letter day on the Jewels ' social calendar was the spring semi-formal for all club members and their guests. Laura J. Randell described the group ' s special purpose: " . . . to promote unity among black students, as well as all minority students, to work together towards serving the community.

While AMF didn ' t play in front of thousands of people or hold title to a Heisman Trophy, they nonetheless par- ticipated in the traditional Longhorn wor- ship of football. As an intramural football team, AMF ended the regular season with a 6-2 record and was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs. The group did not take the loss as seriously, as they accomplished what they set out to do. " We were just out to have fun, and that ' s what we did, " said Todd Larsen. AMF evolved when member Mike Petty wanted to put together an intramural team. " People I knew, people they knew, basically was the outcome of putting together a team, " said Petty. Most of the members of the group, who began playing competitively in the fall of 1982, became friends when they attended Humble High School near Houston. Although most were not jocks, they shared an interest in football. Anyone who was in- terested could join, however, just as long as they pitched in $10 a month for parties. In addition to their athletic endeavors, the group often gathered for purely social occa- sions. At the condominium of one of its members, AMF held monthly parties where they " drank, listened to music and shot the bull, " said Larsen. Whatever the activity, AMF members tried to fulfill their original purpose which was to " form a closely knit group of in- dividuals. It ' s a group where you can be yourself and have fun, " said Larsen, " and not have to worry about the pressures of having to conform to any standards. " AMF members engage in off-season activities.

In fall 1982, a handful of students noticed a group of vultures hanging around campus. By spring, the number cited had increased. No real damage had been done by these alleged birds of prey just a few raided refrigerators and stolen six-packs. Some students did complain of loud noises during the night. The noises sounded mysteriously like the music of Joe Ely, Buddy Holly, the Stray Cats and other rockabilly groups. Students also thought they heard the sounds of loud laughter interspersed with the sound a beer can makes when the tab is pulled, but they could not be sure. It turned out that the students were cor- rect. The sounds they heard came from a vul ' ter (vb) 1. to get something you want for free from someone who doesn ' t want to give it to you. party, a Vulture bash thrown by the Vultures. " We ' re just a group of party animals and dancin ' fools, " said member John Jay Thorpe. Thrope organized the group back in high school. He and friends from St. Thomas High School in Houston started by bum- ming homework from friends. They kept up the custom of bumming when they all came to UT, only in college it was beer and food instead of homework. The Vultures involved themselves in more than just vulturing off people. They liked music and loved to dance. New wave and rockabilly were among the favorite kinds of music played at Vulture bashes. Also demonstrating an interest in campus political life, the majority of the Vultures ran for of- fices in student government, besides supporting candidates in public elections. The Vultures planned to sponsor a train- ing seminar in 1984. In this seminar they would educate students in the art of suc- cessfully being named the sole heir in old rich people ' s wills, borrowing cars for ex- tended periods of time and amassing large collections of beer cans. by Natalie Wyrick John orrest S.

From April 16, 1962 until March 13, 1981, Cronkite anchored the CBS Evening News, breaking both good and bad news in a low- key, forthright, " old shoe " narration that reassured the audience that everything was under control. Most recently, Cronkite returned to The University of Texas where he spent three years as a student from 1933 until 1936. His return visit was marked by ceremony when Cronkite served as master of ceremonies at the Centennial Roundup Revue on April 10. Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. was born Nov. 4, 1916 in St. Joseph, Missouri. As a child, he moved to Houston, where his father joined the faculty of The University of Texas Den- tal School. Cronkite decided that he wanted to be a journalist when he was in junior high school, having become intrigued by the experiences of a foreign correspondent in an " American Boy " short story. He was further encouraged by his English teachers. At Sanjacinto High School, Cronkite was involved with the yearbook and newspaper. He was also active on the track team. After his graduation in 1933, Cronkite entered The University of Texas at Austin, where he studied journalism, political science and economics. Likewise, he was ac- tive in intramural sports and the Curtain Club, The University ' s drama organization. Cronkite also worked part-time as a campus correspondent for the Houston Post, as a sportscaster for a local radio station and finally as a state capitol reporter for the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain. In his junior year, Cronkite left UT to work for the Houston Post full-time because he found that " covering the state capitol was a lot more exciting than studying political science in school. " " Besides, " he said, " I never went to classes, so I got awful grades. " Cronkite worked for one year at the Post as a reporter, religion editor and assistant amusements editor. He left the Post to work as a news and sports editor at KCMO radio station in Kansas City. He also worked for a time as a football announcer for WKV in Oklahoma City. In 1939, Cronkite became a United Press correspondent. After serving as battle correspondent dur- ing World War II, Cronkite covered the Nuremberg war crimes trials and became UP bureau chief in Moscow. When Cronkite returned to the States, he worked briefly for radio stations in the Midwest, until the Korean War erupted and he received an offer to cover it for CBS. In- stead of covering the war, however, Cronkite was delegated to set up CBS ' s new television news department in Washington, D.C. Cronkite began his television career nar- rating a series of nationally broadcast public affairs programs, including a long-running documentary series that presented historic events as fast-breaking news items called " You are There. " In 1952, Cronkite covered his first presidential election campaign for CBS. In 1962, Cronkite anchored the first " CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite, " a 15- minute news summary. In 1953, the show was expanded to 30 minutes and eventually passed NBC ' s popular " Huntley-Brinkley Report " in the ratings and reigned as the most watched newscast during the tenure of Cronkite ' s anchoring days. Cronkite always considered himself a newsman rather than an entertainer or TV personality, lamenting that " this generation just wants to be stars. They ' re more familiar with a hot comb than with an idea. If there had been no TV for me, I would have gone into print. These people would go into ac- ting. " He rejected sophisticated flashiness and sensationalism and believed instead in straightforward unbiased reporting. In 1981, Cronkite semi-retired to his Up- per East Side Manhattan home and his yacht at Martha ' s Vinyard, Massachusetts with his wife Mary and their three children: Nancy, Mary and Walter, Jr. In 1982-83, Cronkite hosted a prime-time show called " Walter Cronkite ' s Universe, " and hoped to be the first journalist to fly to the moon on the space shuttle. Meanwhile, he remained a special news commentator.

Among the alumni invited were C. R. Smith, former president of American Airlines, and State Sen. Lloyd Doggett, who spoke to the group during their fall rush activities. Although AKPsi was kept busy with their Centennial functions, they found time to participate in several community service pro- jects. Several members participated in the Muscular Dystrophy Association Basketball Bounce Sept. 1 at Highland Mall. Members took pledges for each hour they bounced a basketball. During October, AKPsi took the children of the Junior Helping Hands or- phanage out for a day of roller skating. AKPsi ' s major service project in 1982-83 was their beauty pageant which was held during October. Local celebrities, including KTVV-36 sportscaster Vic Jacobs and KVUE-24 weatherman Tim Ross competed in the event. All proceeds went to the Austin Autistic Society. Alpha Kappa Psi was the first professional business fraternity. The UT chapter was founded in 1915. " Alpha Kappa Psi is not just a club; rather, it is a professional fraternity. The fraternity is stressed through brotherhood that develops among our members. A large percentage of our members owe their pre- sent business connections to associations fostered by the fraternity, " Stewart said. In 1983, there were more than 100,000 members of AKPsi nationwide. This number included more than 3,500 faculty members at various colleges and universities. Although the fraternity stressed profes- sionalism, members did kick back and enjoy some social events. Every week the fraternity met at a local " watering hole " and relaxed in preparation for the weekend. These social meetings at various clubs and restaurants gave members a chance to get acquainted in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition to such weekly functions, the fraternity sponsored two costume parties each semester. In November, AKPsi members held their fall formal at the Bradford Hotel. AKPsi was unique in that it was the only coed professional organization in the nation. In the changing business world, members found it very important that they learn to in- teract on a professional level with members of both sexes. Our purpose is to assist in career guidance by helping our members develop a profes- sional outlook that will benefit them in their future business careers, " concluded Stewart. by Linda Sheinall FIRST ROW: Patricia Ann Jacobs, Mary Jennifer Baron, Ellen Lynne O ' Brien, Theresa Lynn Sparks, Malia Dunham, Laura Gail Summers.

Alpha Kappa Psi 429 SIGMA DELTA CHI Journalists Strive for Professionalism R Sigma Delta Chi expected prospective members to be intent upon becoming pro- fessional journalists and to give evidence of having some journalistic ability. The Society of Professional Journalists strived to foster professionalism in the field by preparing their members for the outside world. Dr. Martin L. Gibson, adviser for the group, spoke to members about his teaching fellowship in New Zealand. Senior editor for Texas Monthly Paul Burka and Bruce Might, president of the Austin professional spoke to members on separate occasions. Founded at DePauw University in Indiana on April 17, 1909, Sigma Delta Chi was originally a men ' s honorary fraternity. At the national convention in Columbia, Missouri, in 1916, members elected to become a pro- fessional organization. SDX has served as a stepping stone for many professional journalists. Some members like columnist James Kilpatrick, pollster George Gallop and Texas-ex an- chorman Walter Cronkite, have become leaders in their field. by Linda Sheinall Like many Sigma Delta Chi members, Daily Texan managing editor Roger Campbell works for student publications.

According to Jeffrey Ray, president, the club ' s activities were geared toward students in the RTF department, and their main ob- jective was assisting the student. The advising aspect of the organization operated on two levels: one catering to the needs and interests of the underclassmen and the other to those of the upperclassmen. Emphasis was placed on giving the under- classmen information about what courses they should take, how to enroll in the m and what kind of course work to expect once they were in class. For the upperclassmen, weight was placed on placing students in their respective fields after graduation. Nick Cominos, a lecturer in the RTF department, and a respected member of the film industry spoke to the club in the fall on what sort of background RTF majors should acquire before they graduate. Com- inos also said that students should be ver- satile that is they should know something about film, television and radio. Monthly student-faculty mixers were characteristic of the RTF Club. Parties were held to give faculty and students of the RTF department the opportunity to become bet- ter acquainted and to increase faculty and student interaction. Ray said that his hope for the future of the RTF Club lay in gap- ping the bridge between students and facul- ty. He also hoped for increased visibility and membership for the organization. " We are dedicated to our philosophy and joining the RTF club is encouraged because it would be a reflection on how much you care to become involved in the RTF depart- ment.

Radio-Television-Film Club 431 AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS Engineers Get Off to Concrete Start And they ' re off! Crowds cheered as canoes skimmed the clear waters, fighting against the wind and racing against each other. Four-member teams paddled swiftly, cutting the water with each stroke. From the sidelines the canoes appeared to glide ef- fortlessly. Actually, they were molded con- crete. Odd? The American Society of Civil Engineers didn ' t think so. During the spring meeting in Corpus Christi, March 27-29, the Texas section of ASCE competed in the con- crete canoe races. Teams built canoes which weighed approximately 115 pounds and then raced against other teams from across the state. The University men ' s team won the finals against A M and UT-Arlington while the women ' s team beat A M and Houston. The American Society of Civil Engineers began as a professional organization in 1852. University civil engineering majors joined the Texas section of ASCE in 1923. As a pro- fessional and service organization, ASCE had been particularly helpful to its student members. President Chuck Haley explained: " ASCE helped students meet people in their department as well as professionals in their ' Member Robert Harris added, " It has given students contacts with engineers kind of like a go-between. " At the fall Engineering Exposition held in the Union Ballroom, booths were set up by companies from different engineering fields. Interested University students were en- couraged to talk with the representatives about the companies, particular projects and even the job outlook. Other activities included the monthly ASCE meetings where members listened to guest lecturers such as University professor Dr. John Breen, a Fellow member with the American Concrete Institute. He spoke to the students about the investigations concer- ning the Kansas City Hyatt Regency hotel collapse in the summer of 1981. ASCE also challenged students to match wits against field professionals in the Univer- sity ' s 16th annual Model Span contest. On April 11, professionals competed with students from such schools as A M and Houston in building balsa wood bridges. In the basement of Ernest Cockrell Jr. Hall, each team was given a kit containing balsa wood and glue all the materials necessary to build a bridge that weighed approximate- ly 20 grams but could withstand the pressure of possibly 1,500 pounds. Using a loading machine, increasing weight was applied until the bridge cracked under pressure. The results were measured as a load to weight ratio with the highest ratio winning. The winning team received $100 prize money. The fall brought a service project for the engineering students. ASCE encouraged its student chapters to participate in projects away from their school in order to keep the students active in their fields. Consequently, University ASCE members were commis sioned by the Young Men ' s Business League to build equipment for the Sunshine Camp at Zilker Park. Monthly beer busts were a prominent part of the society ' s socializing. The group would purchase six kegs with the money obtained through club dues and T-shirt sales. But of course, no beer bust would be complete without the presence of the engineering pro fessors. " Of course they came! " exclaime Haley. " That way students got a chance t know their profs outside of the lecture at mosphere. The social affairs were very relax ing for all, " he added. by Anne Eb FIRST ROW.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers 433 STUDENT LANDMAN ' S ASSOCIATION Landmarks Members Among Elite As one of three universities in the country offering a degree program in petroleum land management (PLM), the University of Texas provided students with opportunities to take advantage of the oil industry through the Student Landman ' s Association. Petroleum land management the legal and business management of land that oil companies predict will contain oil in- volved researching land leasing and finding the owners of mineral rights. Throughout the year SLA worked towards maintaining an open path of com- munication with industry contacts by having dinner with their guest speakers before the monthly meetings to discuss new trends and business processes in the oil industry. " Hav ing dinner with our speakers was something we considered to be very special, " said Rhonda Frazer, Student Land- man ' s Association secretary. " To facilitate even more of a business attire to our meetings at the Joe Thompson Conference Center, was highly encouraged, " she added. During the spring semester, SLA members attended several seminars, in- cluding the Houston Association of Petroleum Landmen Seminar, the Southwest Legal Foundation Seminar and the Oil and Gas Seminar. With these contacts, PLM students in the Student Landman ' s Associa- tion were well ahead of students not associated with the group. Another service that the SLA provided its members was the availability of a Merit Scholarship award made possible by the Department of Petroleum Land Manage- ment. To be eligible for the scholarship, students had to be active members of the Student Landman ' s Association. Like many UT organizations, the SLA catered to their members in a business sense as well as in a social sense. Toward the end of the fall the group traveled to the Coupland Tavern for a barbecue. In the spring they completed their calendar with a golf tournament and skeet shoot. by Delia deLaFuente SLA loads up with barbecue at December party .1 -::, Ah Members of the Student Landman ' s Association and their guests take a break from the festivities during a barbecue party held at Coupland Tavern in DecembelH ' 434 Student Landman ' s Association ie; ' f OFFICERS: FIRST ROW: Keith C.

The credibility of this statement was proven when LPhA attended the Texas Pharmaceutical Association Council ' s meeting which was held on Nov. 5. L PhA members held all three of the student delegate positions of- fered by the TPA. Chris Horsley sat on the Council of Public Affairs, which arrived at a resolution concerning pharmacy crime legislation. The legislation required mandatory sentencing, restrictive bail and no bail for repeated offenses in phar- maceutical related crimes in Texas. Also, the Council of Public Affairs discussed whether individual states or the federal government should have control over the packaging of drugs. Martha Gardner, LPhA correspon- ding secretary, was a member of the Council of Organizational Affairs at the Nov. 5 conference. This council discussed the low level of participation in the TPA by faculty and encouraged student input con- LPhA members and other pharmacy groups edited Tht PharmadiUo. cerning improvements in the Texas Phar- macy Journal. In addition to participation with the TPA conference, LPhA sponsored a Health Check test designed as a safety aid for people on medication to help recognize and classify their medicines. The test was given to incoming pre-pharmacy students by LPhA. LPhA published The Pharmadillo, a newspaper written by pharmacy students. The paper included letters tc the editor, pharmacy news and ran- dom features. In another show of their active con cern for the health profession, LPhA members took the opportunity tc learn cardio-pulmonary rescusitatior and sponsored a raffle to aid the Spins Bifida research fund. " We have a good succession ol leaders, " Horsley said, adding that " LPhA president, Rita Hegei negotiated LPhA admittance to the TPA council meeting; member Scott Sabrusla was a National District office holder and held a permanent part-time position with TPA; LPhA Pharmacy Council representative Elizabeth Ley planned to run for national vice presi- dent and president-elect Eileen Ley was elected regional delegate at the mid-yeat meeting held at Northeastern Louisiana State University, Nov. 5-7.

NATIONAL CHICANO HEALTH ORGANIZATION NCHO Brings Medical World to Light me: anc r, Biology, anatomy, physiology and other urses were required for those bent on ceiving a health professions degree. Some tudents interested in such careers occa- sionally needed a helping hand in moving from one educational system to another and eventually into their profession. The Na- tional Chicano Health Organization provid- ed assistance needed, plus adding extracur- ricular activities which eased the pressure of the tough health professions curriculum. Founded in the 1970s, NCHO aided its mbers by providing them with contacts and information from medical schools. The group toured the UT medical schools in .lias, San Antonio and Galveston, the Texas Medical Center in Houston and the Baylor College of Medicine. NCHO was open to any UT student with an interest in the health professions. It work- ed to help students with studies by providing opportunities for group study, note sharing and assistance from graduates. " Our organization is unique in that we have eliminated many of the competitions so often associated with students in the larger pre-professional organizations, which many people join just for the prestige, " said Bet- tina Vaello, president. " The members share notes and their ex- periences. We have realized that our full potential will not be utilized unless we work together for common goals, " she added. NCHO also helped sponsor the World of Engineering program in November and they participated in such service projects as tak- ing children from the Junior Helping Hands home on outings to movies and restaurants. Fundraising projects were held to help reduce the cost of activities. Members did stadium clean-ups, held fajita sales on the West Mall and nacho sales during the Cinco de Mayo celebration. " The activities are one important aspect of NCHO, but our organization has three advantages. It offers friendship, a source of information, and the best of all motiva- tion, " Vaello said. by Cindy Johnson RST ROW: Dora Josefina Romo, Julie A.

AIChE participated in many other ac- tivities. In September, AIChE members took a trip to the Monsanto chemical plant in Texas City. The tour gave J students a chance to see what they had s ffl learned in school applied in a professional situation. Members were given detailed instruction on the plant ' s operation and maintenance. Members also attended national and regional AIChE conventions. Three UT representatives were chosen to attend the na- tional convention in Los Angeles. They took part in various workshops and technical seminars. Other members participated in regional AIChE conventions. Once a semester, AIChE invited visiting committees made up of representatives from the chemical divisions of several companies to speak at UT. They answered audience Among the lecturers that spoke at AIChE monthly meetings in 1982-83 were Dr. Margret Maxey, chairman of the Chair of Free Enterprise and adjunct professor in engineering. Two NASA representatives also talked to members about the space shuttle and a representative from Merrill-Lynch talk- ed to students about investments and the economy. Most of the social activities were geared to giving members an opportunity to get better acquainted with UT engineering instructors. In September, AIChE held the first of their semi-annual student-faculty picnics. Another picnic was held in the spring. Four " fireside " programs were held during the year as in- formal discussion groups between pro- fessors and students.

The society was an organization dedicated to publicizing the need for women engineers and encouraging young women to pursue an engineering education. In their capacity as an information center, SWE introduced members to women in the field of engineering through guest lecturers. Speakers featured by the society included Brenda Britt from the Exxon Corporation, Susan Corley from Stauffer Chemicals and Margaret Maxey, director of the chair of Free Enterprise at UT. The society got a hands-on look at women in the engineering field as well as in- struction on maintenance and operation of the plant when they toured the Radian and Texaco chemical plants. Social events for the organization includ- ed a dinner party at the home of the adviser, Dr. Ned Burns. The dinner party gave the members an opportunity to meet each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
