The University was sincere in its desire to up academic stan- dards. In the fall, a new core curriculum aimed at providing all students with a broad-based liberal arts education went into effect. On April 16, 1984, an anonymous donor contributed $8 million to The University with conditions that the figure be matched by private contributors and then doubled by The University. A $32 million endowment was successfully established for 32 separate chairs, half in the College of Engineering and half in the College of Natural Sciences. The administrative season climaxed in the spring with the ap- pointment of a new chancellor, Hans Mark, renowned physicist and NASA chieftan, to oversee and promote The University ' s academic integrity. In between these timeline events, college life at UT was alternately precious and cruel. Students learned to manage their time as well as their finances. Wednesdays were set aside for studying at the PCL and Sundays for fajitas at the Hyatt. And then there were tests - - endurance tests with roommates and B-law tests with Bader. University life tested our character and morals as well. These were often the most difficult to pass. There ' s nowhere else but The University of Texas.

Why did they enroll at The University of Texas at Austin? The University registered 25,960 men and 21,671 women in the fall. There were 38,565 in-state students, 5,838 out-of- state students and 3,228 foreign students. Ethnicity at The University included: 37,731 Whites, 4,053 Hispanics, 3,228 from foreign countries, 1,443 Blacks, 1,093 Asian Americans, and 83 American Indians.

These 47,631 students were individuals alike, yet different. They ex- perienced some of the same feelings and believed in some of the same values. They at- tended The University to gain knowledge, but also, to have fun in their pursuit. They learned from each other. They participated and gave each other support. Some of these students pass- ed by you everyday on the West Mall and some of them rode the shuttle bus with you to Riverside Drive. They were individuals.

Festivities began on Sept. 15, 1983 when The University commemorated the 100th an- niversary of its first day of classes. The Tower illuminated orange with a white number " 1 " and UT fever broke out across campus. University President Peter Flawn said in his Centennial Convocation address, " When an individual achieves the ripe old age of 100 years, it is socially acceptable to take it easy. But, for a university, it is an occasion to celebrate, as we have; take a deep breath, as we are going to do; and get back to work. " Other festive occasions celebrated by The University included: the Centennial Showcase on Oct. 1, Texas In- dependence Day on Mar. 2, and Round-Up on April 2-8. V t Cheerleaders yell at Round-Up.

MODERN NIGHTMARES wo of the year ' s major news events were remarkable for their promise of a world with no future. As NATO deployed new missiles in Europe, the specter was raised yet again of an apocalypse that threatened the destruction of modern civilization. And on Jan. 1, 1984, George Orwell ' s nightmarish tale of the ultimate totalitarian state arrived in title, if not in fact. Orwell ' s satirical novel described a state which invaded and con- trolled every aspect of a person ' s life. With its publication, the question was whether we would reach 1984 by 1984. But even with the examples of decay thrown about the West in 1984 was infinitely more free than in 1984. More threatening was the danger of nuclear war. After the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. fail- ed to reach an agreement reducing the number of Soviet missiles aimed at Western Europe, NATO went ahead with plans to deploy 572 new cruise and Pershing II missiles. In the midst of this, ABC-TV presented " The Day After " , a movie dramatizing the effects of nuclear war on the town of Lawrence, Kansas. Fortunately, the world wasn ' t paralyzed with a sense of impending apocalypse. After I all, we ' re still here. Brian r Zabcik In 7984, Big Brother was watching. JUNE JULY AUGUST JUNE 9 At 7:26 p.m., the lights go out across virtually all of Austin, Travis County and portions of four neighbor- ing counties. The blackout, caused when a station breaker between Austin and Bastrop blew, lasted 3 ' 2 hours. Those lucky enough to be on campus at the time are unaffected by the blackout since The University generates its own power. In a Daily Texan interview a few days later, the deputy director of Austin ' s electric utility department says, " A bird carrying some type of metallic material to build nests seems to be the most probable cause of the fault on the circuit breaker. " JUNE 9 Saying, " Isn ' t it wrong to have an editor who is also a politician? " Daily Texan editor Roger Campbell asks the Texas Student Publications board to reconsider the way editors are chosen. Texas is one of the few univer- sities in the nation that elects the editor of its student newspaper, but Camp- bell ' s proposal would change that. The plan would reduce student input to a preferential poll and have the TSP board appoint the editor. Although Campbell ' s plan on the sur- face seems innocuous, it meets strong opposition from several former Texan editors and Mitch Kreindler, Students Association president. Much of the op- position to the proposal is caused by the history of the paper ' s relationship with The University administration. Since the 1950s, Texan editors have repeated- ly clashed with administrators and regents, who have tried to exert greater control over the paper. Debate on the issue drags on through the summer, finally coming to a head at the TSP board meeting on Aug. 8. Mostly due to lack of support, no formal action is taken on Campbell ' s plan. A proposal by board member Isabella Cunningham, chairman, Department of Advertising, is unanimously accepted in its place. Cunningham ' s plan introduces a number of campaign reforms but re- tains student elections. That, so we thought, was the last of the issue. But it wasn ' t. On Sept. 20, the TSP board makes some changes in the roles of the Texan editor and managing editor. Henceforth, the editor will only be in charge of the editorial page. All major policy decisions and the day-to- day running of the paper are delegated to the managing editor, who, incidental- ly, is appointed by the TSP board.

This Fall, 9,783 people were admitted to The University as entering freshmen. So young. So innocent. So unaware of how unpredictable their relationship with The University would be. Having been expelled from the safe shelter of high school, they had made their first Real World decision. Faced with the prospect of immediate entry into the drudgery of the job market or four years of relative ease in academia, these people made the only sane, in- telligent choice. They came here. And for 5,064 freshmen-to-be, summer orientation was their first blind date with The University. The orientees arrived, usually on a Monday afternoon, in the lobby of Jester East, home for their 3 Vz day stay. Most had something to say about the dormitory and its cafeteria. " I heard about the food in Jester, and what I heard was right, " Najiyah Najieb of Houston said. " Jester ' s not as bad as people say it is. People make it out to be some kind of dungeon, " Kent Morrison of Austin said. Fact was, though, most of the people staying in Jester had little time to worry about the dorm when they were in the midst of a flurry of discussions, meetings and tours. John Ragle, orien- tation director, said the program had a variety of aims, including helping orientees learn their way around cam- pus. " People do worry that they ' ll get lost and never find their way back to where they started, " he said. The ses- sions also tried to familiarize orientees with academic requirements and available services. The main draw that brought many people to orientation was the chance to pre-register for classes. After taking placement tests for beginning classes, orientees mapped out a course schedule for their first semester at meetings with orientation advisers. " I thought I was going to have to plan out my four years. I really did, " Kimberly Faulkenberry of Lubbock said. " I thought we were going to sit down, go over my four years, and make sure I had all these hours. And I was going, ' Oh my God! ' We got in there and did one semester, and I was going, ' Phew! ' Semester by semester, I think I can handle that. " Throughout the orientation process, the OAs played a crucial role in helping future students adjust to The Universi- ty; they were the experienced veterans leading those young, innocent orientees through a collegiate jungle. As Ragle said, " They really are the heart of the program. " Chosen in the Fall of 1982, the student advisers had primary responsibility for running the sessions. For many of the freshmen-to-be, orientation was a first confirmation of whether they had made the right deci- sion in coming to The University. " It ' s either this or manual labor, " as one orientee explained. And most had dif- ferent expectations of what the highlight of their college careers would be. " Making it to class on time, " Faulkenberry said. Morrison said flatly, " Graduation. " Ah, if it were only that easy.

University students caught up in the perils of summer school found Town Lake was the place and August 5-14, 1983, the time to enjoy the 22nd Austin Aqua Festival, which brought water- sport competitions and musical enter- tainment to the third coast city. Ranked among the top 10 festivals in the nation, Aqua Fest expanded to 70 events, including ski tournaments, a Mexican market, raft races and parades. Organized in 1962, the Festival was sponsored by Austin businesses and run by an all-volunteer staff. Rusty Tally, Aqua Fest president, said, " The festival strongly supports local charities not only with events, but with revenues from those events. " KHFI-FM 98 and Budweiser cospon- sored the Great River Raft Race, which attracted over 3,000 participants in floating rent-a-cans, rubber rafts and helium-filled castles. UT students Larry Smith, Jim Nicar, and Roger Ludlow entered the race " just for fun. " " We decided to enter because it was something different and we thought it would be fun to do before the summer was over, " Smith said. Attracting a crowd of almost 50,000, the Night Lighted Water Parade and Fireworks Display featured floats on 40-foot-long barges. The parade was one I of the few in the nation that displayed j lighted floats on a body of water. Delia de Lafuente ABOVE: Group rowing helped this dragon float down the river to the finish.

Aquafest 25 INTERVIEW David Deming stands in front of Mystic Raven located at the corner of Ninth St. and Congress Ave. A Man of Steel " Actually I ' m one of the only people I know who will admit they ' re from Cleveland, " David Deming said about his hometown. He moved to Texas in 1970 to take a teaching position at the University of Texas at El Paso, but left after one year, explaining, " The men- tality of the people in El Paso essential- ly, in terms of buying art, was that they could get it cheaper in Juarez. You couldn ' t make a living there. " In 1971 he came to Austin to become an assistant professor of art at The University. Deming is also a profes- sional sculptor. His best-known work is Mystic Raven, the first major public sculpture erected in downtown Austin. The work was placed in front of the First City Centre in the Fall, 1983. The following is condensed from an interview with Deming in February 1984: " It seemed that sculpture was the answer to my physical needs. I was always an athlete and always doing something physical. And I tended to dent my paintings because I was always shoving the brush in them and bending the canvases. I eventually got into work- ing steel; steel was very much like wrestling. I loved wrestling; it was like you could push something that ' s going to push you back and then you push a different way and you finally win. Working steel was very much like that. " Once you get past the obvious that it ' s an. income, teaching enables me to do a number of things. One, it enables me to continually dialogue about art. School situations are like big magnets; they just pull faculties and students in so that you ' re constantly in a situation to talk about art. " It ' s a very positive thing, the dialogue and the critiques and watching people come in at a very undeveloped stage and bloom in a very short period of time. Artists really do bloom quickly. You can see things happen. You can see a spark ignite. You feel good just because you were part of that catalyst that helped it happen. " What happens in the discovery pro- cess in art is that you really get closely involved with the students, almost becoming a psychologist, sometimes a guru, sometimes just a friend. People have things they want to communicate, and at an early stage, they don ' t know how to say them, so they spew things out at you constantly. It can become a very close, emotional attachment be- tween faculty and student. " The comments I ' ve read and heard (about Mystic Raven) are, I think, very amusing, but some of them hit right on. " Somebody said they thought it looked like a series of wrenches, and it does. That ' s because I like tools, and I know those things come out. Somebody said it looked like a grasshopper. That ' s okay. I don ' t take that to be an offensive comment at all. " Most great art has a variety of input that goes into it, which the artist often never gets a chance to talk about or ex- plain. So I don ' t feel bad about loading a lot of imagery in my work at all, but yet I think when you approach that piece, it ' s a very simple piece. Structurally, it ' s a simple series of shapes, but it has a complex background. " Brian Zabcik 26 Interview UT PRIMER 1 ; : Late in the afternoon, a lawn sprinkler creates the illusion of a fountain in the planter between Goldsmith Hall and the Texas Union. The Fountain That Wasn ' t The University administration developed a plan in 1973 for the renova- tion of the West Mall. The proposal would replace the grassy expanse of the mall (a popular site for political con- gregations since the late 1960s) with planters of azaleas. Boxes would be built around existing trees, and a new fountain would be constructed at the west end between the Texas Union and Goldsmith Hall. On the surface, the purpose of the plan was to make the mall more accessi- ble to the heavy flow of traffic and achieve better security and conservation of electricity through the modification of the lighting system. But critics of the plan thought other- wise, as Paul Cullum and John Schwartz wrote in a 1980 issue of UTmost: " The regents claimed they had beautified the mall. Protestors retorted that the large boxes were a conscious crowd control since they effectively broke up large groups. The regents denied the accusations. " Students opposed to the proposed renovation formed the Ad Hoc Commit- tee to Save West Mall, and in July 1973, a student proposal was presented to the regents. Since, at the time, other foun- tains on campus were not being used to conserve energy, students called for the planned West Mall fountain to be replaced with a planter. The regents agreed to most of the stu- dent proposals, including turning the fountain into a planter. But they also approved installing the pipes and drains for a fountain should the original design plan be adopted anytime in the future.

All 269 crew and passengers aboard the civilian jetliner are killed, including 61 Americans. The U.S.S.R. insists all proper warnings were made, although the tape from the cockpit voice recorder notes only that KAL 007 was not responding to the International Friend or Foe signal, a code the jetliner was not equipped to receive. Soviet popularity reaches a new low as the international community expresses varying degrees of outrage. Sen. Edward Kennedy says, " The Soviet Union may regard life as cheap, but the rest of the world has a right to demand certain, minimum standards of human conduct among nations. " SEPTEMBER 12 Proving all comes to those who protest, The University administration expands the 1983 foot- ball cheerleading squad to 16 members. Traci Wilcots, a cheerleader in 1982, was not chosen for the ' 83- ' 84 squad during April tryouts. " There is no answer why I didn ' t make it. I don ' t know if it was personal or if it was racial, " Wilcots said. She protested to Ronald Brown, vice president of Stu- dent Affairs, saying that judging was unfair in the tryouts. A representative of the Black Students Association joined the protest when an all-white squad was selected for 1983. Before The University had reached a decision, protest started again when miniorities were not selected for the basketball cheerleading squad. Two days after results of the basket- ball tryouts are announced, Brown ap- points six additional members, in- cluding Wilcots, to the football squad. Brown says it is " important that a group such as the cheerleaders reflect The University ' s cultural diversity.

The Alumni Band and a 60-second fireworks display were also featured. 30 Centennial _ he contrast could hardly have | been more striking. On Sept. 15, I 1883, opening ceremonies for The University were held in an un- finished Main Building, centerpiece of a 40-acre campus fenced to keep out wandering cows. A century later, on Sept. 15, 1983, UT officials gathered for the Centennial Convocation in the $32.5 million Frank C. Erwin Center, one of the 10 buildings on the 337-acre main campus of a system with 17 branch in- stitutions. At least in terms of sheer size, The University had arrived as a na- tionally prominent school. The con- stitutional mandate for establishing a " university of the first class " had been met, Wales Madden, chairman of the Centennial Commission said. The Centennial observance lasted from Feb. 4 to Dec. 9. The following are the fall ' s major celebrations. Centennial Convocation. After three years of work, the Centennial Commission presented its report to the Board of Regents at the Centennial Convocation. " The University of Texas at Austin ... is now one of the truly great universities of this nation, " Wales Madden, commission chairman, said. Madden gave a synopsis of the commis- sion ' s report, which recommended strengthening The University ' s office of the president " to the extent permitted by law without creating an autocracy. " Other items the 175-member group endorsed included protection of the Permanent University Fund, valued at more than 2 billion, " against any dilu- tion, " and reservation of a significant portion of the Available University Fund solely to support " academic enrichment " at The University. Addi- tionally, the commission called for im- provement of the quality of the faculty. " The current faculty is generally ex- cellent but not uniformly great, " Mad- den said. " To be truly superior, " he ad- ded, The University " must provide a distinguished faculty in all fields. To at- tract distinguished teachers, you must offer salaries second to none. " Silver Spurs escort Bevo in the Centennial Parade which depicted ten decades of UT history. University president Peter Flawn also addressed the crowd of school officials, alumni, students and assorted dignitaries. " A distinction needs to be drawn between knowledge and inf orma- tion, " he said. " Today ' s students have more information, but maybe they have less knowledge. Information becomes knowledge when you know what it means; knowledge becomes wisdom when you know how to use it. " Flawn discussed the effects of an emerging tool of learning, the computer. " The vision of a student seated alone at a console hour after hour produces in me a certain unease, and I reassure myself by countering that vision with one of a student arguing vehemently in a small seminar room. We must not lose the human interaction, for computers cannot think, cannot feel. " " A public institution that aspires to greatness can never be satisfied with its condition, " Flawn concluded. " When an individual achieves the ripe old age of 100 years, it is socially acceptable to take it easy. But, for a university, it is an occasion to celebrate, as we have; take a deep breath, as we are going to do; and get back to work. " One of several Austin students in the parade. Centennial 31 On a warm September afternoon, the Union patio was the best place to enjoy I ' T ' s birthday cake. Texas Union Open House. In the warm afternoon sun, as people ate barbecue, drank beer and listened to live bands on the Texas Union patio, the Centennial took on a new perspective. Yes, the Centennial was an important landmark in The University ' s history, and yes, the Centennial was an oppor- tunity to reflect on 100 years of noble accomplishments, but most important- ly, from a college student ' s viewpoint, the Centennial was an opportunity to party. " I wish The University had more hundredth birthdays, " Nora Montez, mechanical engineering sophomore, said, adding Centennial celebrations should be held every Thursday. Mike McElhaney, architecture junior, echoed these sentiments, saying, " I don ' t think they have these celebrations often enough. " The Union held open house in the afternoon, after the Centennial Con- vocation. After the Longhorn Band marched through the patio, the Union served barbecue lunches while local bands played on the balcony of the Academic Center. An additional feature of the celebration was an 8 ' 2 -foot-tall birthday cake, a replica of the Main Building constructed by architecture students and the Union food services director. Slices of the cake, in the Union Ballroom, were served all afternoon. Even with the fun, food and music, some students were still able to reflect and meditate on the Centennial ' s larger importance. " To see all the changes and the different styles and attitudes people go through I ' m glad to be a part of it, " Angelica Bernhard, English sophomore, said. President Flawn joins in " The Eyes of Texas. " Centennial Time Capsule. Deciding how to fill a time capsule can be a dif- ficult problem. What items would you want a future generation to consider typical of today ' s society? The Austin Chamber of Commerce posed that ques- tion to the city ' s residents in a contest to determine what would go into the Centennial Time Capsule. The grand- prize-winning suggestion, a packet of bluebonnet seeds, was placed in the cap- sule with a pair of blue jeans, a microchip, a can of Coca-Cola, the 1983 Cactus, and Sept. 15 editions of The Daily Texan and The Wall Street Journal. The capsule was buried in the Centennial Park with an invitation for those celebrating The University ' s bicentennial in 2083 to examine its con- tents. Located on Red River St. across from the Frank C. Erwin Special Events Center, dedication ceremonies for the park were held on Sept. 15. Called Austin ' s gift to The University, the park was funded by almost 20,000 donations from local citizens and businessmen, ranging from 25 cents to $50,000. Longhorn Birthday Bash.

One hundred years after The University first set up shop in Austin, the city celebrated by throwing a Texas-sized birthday party on San Jacinto St. in front of Scholz Garten. s As with all good parties, food, drink g and music played an important part in 4 the success of this gathering. Plenty of beer was available to wash down fajitas, fried catfish and bratwurst available from food booths.

The eyes of Texas are upon you You cannot get away . . . Through Thick And Thin Greeks show their spirit at the OU pep rally. There. Not even one full verse and you felt it. The Longhorn Involuntary Muscle Reaction. The muscles of your arm strain as it raises itself over your head. Your fingers find their most comfortable col- lege position not holding a pencil or a calculator but holding the " Hook ' em Horns " high for every Sooner, Aggie and Razorback to see. As a freshman at orientation, I learned that knowing the complete version of " Texas Fight " was infinitely more important to college success than pre-registering for English 306. Finding the way to the library was not nearly as important as knowing where to draw tickets for the home games. As to the words to " The Eyes of Texas, " there is no doubt about it. They are unquestionably inherited in a Texan ' s genes. Simply UT DNA. This also accounted for an inbred desire to mutter " OU S ' under your breath whenever you walked down Commerce Street in Dallas, and also why you thought people looked funny if they were not glowing like a Gulf sign in orange and white. You also knew that during football season, no excuse justified a trip home to see Mom and Dad. Even if you had not washed clothes in eight weeks. Even if your roommate was a " fun kinda guy " who thought that putting cream cheese in your Kaepas and screaming " Hurry, your calculus exam started 15 minutes ago! " at 6 a.m. Saturday was a good practical joke. O.K., maybe if it was cream cheese. Then, and only then, did you miss a Longhorn football game, no matter what you had to give up to get there. " I found that I may have to give up my homework for Longhorn football, " Jeff Riley, accounting sophomore, said, adding, " It ' s tough to do. " So how else did we show our over- whelming devotion? We partied. Longhorn Style. For the Official Outline of the classic Longhorn Party System, we went to you, the student. " You gotta love them parties, " Mike Fisk, business freshman, said. " Party Friday night, get up about 11:00 a.m., Saturday, ready to party before the game, keep going through the game, don ' t stop when the game does, and Sunday you can use to rest. It ' s the same every game. Can ' t tell you any more or any less. " Of course, being a fan did take its toll in wear and tear on your body. And it wasn ' t just dead brain cells. David Mullen, English junior, explained, " The I only hindrance I can find is the large i bruise I get on my shin from carrying the flask in my boot. " And what student could say he hadn ' t missed the unbelievable touchdown pass of the season at least once while waiting in line for the bathroom? And here is where we come to the crucial question: when and how much to party. Should you run the risk of drinking during the game and missing a play? Do you drink before the game and see four teams out on the field for the entire first half? Or, do you party after the game and see Sunday only after the sun has already gone down? It was not always wise to attempt to keep up with the other people drinking around you, because you might find yourself slumped face down in Memorial Stadium long after everyone else had left, and in a state that even the orange light from the Tower hurt your eyes. Worse yet, you could have found yourself face down in a room with someone you didn ' t even recall meeting in a room you could not iden- tify. These were the classic cases of " Hook ' Em " spirit that peaked too early. Never discouraged by a temporary hangover, the search for the perfect combination went on. While conceding the " you always need the important pre-game warm-up, " Riley said, " I think most drinking basically occurs after the game. " Now being the Longhorns we are, we do not have much practice at partying after a defeat, and we were forced to adapt after our loss to Georgia in the 1984 Cotton Bowl. True to form, we rose to the occasion and did our best to drown our sorrows with style and class. I soon became aware that the entire student body of 48,000 did not rush to leap off the Tower because we missed a National Championship by one in- credibly insignificant point, and that I still could sing " The Eyes of Texas " with my arm loyally raised high in the air.

They wandered from bar to bar, caught a show at Sixth Street Live or Esther ' s Follies, or drifted into Jorge ' s for margaritas. On the last weekend in October, 1983, however, the street was transformed as people shed their everyday clothes for costumes which expressed their own fantasies, no matter how strange, perverse or silly those fantasies might have been. It was Halloween, and people came both to see and be seen. " The costumes were so bizarre. It was great because everyone acted out their parts, " Carie Oprean, a pre-med freshman from New York, said. " We just walked up and down Sixth checking out the costumes. My favorite was the guy dressed as a dinner table. " As the center of Austin ' s night life, Sixth Street provided a showcase of im- aginative Halloween costumes. Some men dressed as sorority girls, wearing Mexican dresses and espadrilles. Two loyal University fans dressed as the Tower. In a subtle stroke of inspiration, two men and a woman came to Sixth Street wearing dark glasses and white Venetian blinds over their heads and carrying tin cups. As they walked down the street, they held hands the blind leading the blind. For both the people in costume and those who came to gawk, Sixth Street on Halloween provided a different outlook for The University ' s students. Hidden under normally studious exteriors were June and Ward Cleaver, Micheal Jackson and Boy George screaming to get out. Bridget Metzger Halloween 37 ur NION ' S 50th Golden Years The Chuck Wagon is currently a dining room. s The University ' s Centennial celebration came to a close, the Texas Union toasted a land- mark birthday of its own. On Nov. 23, 1983, while most students hurried home on the highways for the Thanksgiving holidays, the Texas Union quietly turned 50 years old. The earliest traces of the idea for a student union dated to 1890, when some individuals expressed concern that special student needs were not being met. Thomas Watt Gregory, a graduate of the first UT law class, felt the greatest need of The University was for " a nerve center around which all stu- dent, ex-student and faculty activities should revolve. " A cooperative fundraising drive be- tween the Ex-Students ' Association and the Board of Regents in the midst of the Great Depression resulted in the con- struction of the Texas Union, which was officially opened Nov. 23, 1933. During the 1930s, dances accounted for 90 percent of the Union ' s revenue. The dances were discontinued, though, as the number of unattached males con- tinually outnumbered the couples. The stags cut into so many dances that some men had few opportunities to dance with their own dates. Toward the end of the decade, the Union experienced serious losses as students were drawn to the nightclubs of Austin. In an effort to stabilize the Union ' s financial condi- tion, a $1 compulsory fee was instituted by the Legislature in the 1940s. There was an immediate adjustment in the programming of Union activities to support the nation ' s effort during World War II. Military recruitment was also conducted in the building. After World War II, veterans returning to The University created a need for ex- panded facilities and greater program- ming. Consequently students voted overwhelmingly for a $5 compulsory fee in the mid-1950s to promote expansion. Even though the focus of Union pro- gramming seemed light-hearted in the 1950s, with the " Ten Most Beautiful " and " Best-Dressed Coed " pageants, im- portant social issues were sparking under the surface which would later catch fire with the unrest of the 1960s. Racial equality grabbed the attention of students and the Union became one of the first non-segregated facilities on Guadalupe Street. During the 1960s, the Union brought prominent public figures to campus, in- cluding Martin Luther King Jr., Caesar Chavez and Robert Kennedy. Shirley Bird Perry, Union director in 1973-76 and now Vice President for Develop- ment and University Relations, said, " We had a lot of speakers that represented the minority viewpoint. Philosophically, we were committed to racial integration. " There was that unfortunate incident when Eleanor Roosevelt was uninvited to speak at the Union because she was seen as ' too liberal and controversial. ' But that was not really part of my ex- perience just the opposite. When we had people who were enormously con- troversial, we had a tremendous amount of support from the administration. " Perhaps the most serious situation faced during the 1960s was the Chuck Wagon, a diner in the building. An editorial entitled " Non-Student Dope Pushers at UT " appeared in the Austin American-Statesman and spoke of the need to rid the Chuck Wagon of the " pot-smoking, non-student scum. " The Texas Union Board of Directors then barred non-ID bearers from the Chuck Wagon. On Nov. 10, 1969, non- students forced entry into the diner and staged a protest. The police were alerted and eight people were arrested. Disputes over what to do with the Chuck Wagon led to a its temporary closing. In 1974, the entire Union building was closed for an extensive remodeling program lasting until 1977. Gary Shelton, assistant director for building operations, was hired in 1975 to help with the restoration. " The Texas Union was literally two different buildings - the original built in 1932 and the addi- tion built in 1960, " Shelton said. " The renovation was an effort to marry the two different sections. " For 50 years, the Texas Union has fulfilled Gregory ' s dream of a " nerve center " on the campus to promote " oneness and unity. " President Franklin Roosevelt ' s announcement of declaration to the nation on Dec. 9, 1941, was heard by hushed UT students crowded around radios in the Union. Hours after President John Kennedy ' s assassination, students gathered in the Ballroom for a spontaneous memorial service. This past year, approximately 1000 students gathered in the Ballroom to hear Democratic presidential can- didate Jesse Jackson. As the Union began its 51st year, it remained secure in its role as a focal point for student in- terest.

The University communi- ty was composed mostly of young, white, middle-class college students, while East Austin was made up largely of black and Hispanic working-class residents of all ages. Though the two communities were close, contact be- tween them was rare. That situation changed two years ago, however, as The University began to ex- pand eastward yet again. In the Fall of 1981, real estate agents began buying land for an anonymous client in the area just north of Disch-Falk Field. In June 1982 an East Austin resident, suspect- ing the client was The University, leaked the story to The Daily Texan. A week later, The University unveiled its plans for East Austin. In Phase 1, the school was purchasing a 10-acre tract for construction of a new physical plant. In Phase 2, The Univer- sity would buy land as it became available in a 40-acre region bounded by Manor Road to the north and Martin Luther King Boulevard to the south.

The incidents sparked speculation that one or possibly several persons were car- rying out a grudge against the Greek system. But the Austin Fire Marshal ' s office ruled that the fires, which oc- curred during November and December and all on Sunday mornings, were unrelated. Two were declared arson while the other was ruled accidental. Tau Kappa Epsilon was hit first when their house at 2414 Longview went up in a two-alarm blaze on Nov. 20. The house had been vacated earlier in the semester and was unoccupied when the fire started at 4:10 a.m. Austin Fire Department investigators ruled arson when they found it had been started with a flammable liquid spread over a stairway and second-story hall. The worst of the three fires occurred 22 days later, on Dec. 12, at the Lambda Chi Alpha house. Margo Helen McFee, liberal arts sophomore, died of smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poison- ing and was pronounced dead at the scene. Ted Pastorius, English junior, suffered first-and second-degree burns in an attempt to carry McFee to safety. The four-alarm blaze, started by a smoldering cigarette in Pastorious ' room, was reported at 6:15 a.m. It quick- ly spread from his second-floor quarters to the rest of the house. Seventy firemen took more than 90 minutes to control the fire, which destroyed 13 of the 22 bedroom units in the house. Unofficial estimates put total damage at $125,000. One week later, a three-alarm fire heavily damaged the Alpha Tau Omega house at 2308 Nueces. The crew on a passing firetruck noticed smoke coming out of several windows when they drove by the house at 6:21 a.m. Thirty-six firefighters took more than an hour to bring the fire under control. Investigators ruled arson after they discovered a flammable liquid was used to start it. The liquid was poured on a first floor hallway leading to the stair- case to the second floor. With unofficial estimates from the Fire Marshal ' s office at $500,000, the ATO house received the most monetary damage, but no fatalities occurred as a result of the blaze. The fires prompted fraternities to hire security guards during the Christmas holidays and to invest in smoke alarms and fire extinguishers. ATO members had purchased these devices before their house burned, but had not installed them. Bridget Metzger 1 The ATO house was razed in early April to make way for a new home.

Frat Fires 46 -I INTERVIEW A Question of Tenure In the Fall ' s most controversial department decision, John Zammito, assistant professor of history, was denied tenure in his sixth " up or out " year. A professor facing this situation usually leaves The University, which Zammito did at the end of the semester. " The decision drew criticism from students and faculty. Consistently ranked as an excellent professor in stu- dent evaluations, Zammito fell to the law of " publish or perish, " not having enough work published during his stay at The University. Zammito was born in Massachusetts, but his family moved to Laredo when he was five. " I grew up in Laredo, which is not what you ' d call the most wonderful thing one has to do with one ' s life, " he said, adding, " I hated it. " Zammito came to The University in 1966 as an undergraduate in Plan II and returned as a professor in 1978. His two-semester survey class in European Intellectual History was literally a one- of-a-kind course at The University, covering Galileo to Kant and Heidigger to Heydiddle-diddle. The following is condensed from an interview conducted with Zammito in denial: " The man who has served as an exam- ple for me throughout my teaching career is Cliff Grubbs in the economics department here at UT. He was one of my first teachers, and he alone was able to make me believe that economics was the answer to everything. It took me three years of undergraduate school and a year of graduate work in economics before I figured out that it wasn ' t economics that fascinated me so much. It was him. " Cliff has a little bit of a Baptist preacher in him. He ' s a very dramatic lecturer and a dynamic teacher. He will make flamboyant and outrageous statements often just to get his students stirred up and thinking. He taught me how to be a good teacher. The secret, as he showed me, is really caring about your students. " I literally love teaching. I can walk into a lecture completely drained and come out with more energy than I had when I went in. " The ideal relationship between a teacher and a student is not an equal one. You must preserve a sense of educational differences in the relation- ship while not forgetting that you are both human beings. A good teacher must demand performance while main- taining concern for the students. " The Cactus also asked Zammito about the changes he had seen in The University since he was an undergraduate: " I think the answer is best summed up in a French saying which, when in- terpreted, says, ' The more things change, the more they stay the same. ' John Silber was the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences when I was here as an undergraduate. This was a time when many great professors were teaching on this campus, and he envi- sioned great things for the liberal arts school. Then, after Harry Ransom fired Silber, all the great liberal arts teachers were either chased out or found other jobs. " I see the same thing happening all over again. False starts. The College of Liberal Arts has a sad history of false starts. And this is why UT will never be the first-class kind of university that it wants to be. This school has become so complex that it will never be able to achieve all its goals. It will be impossible to satisfy the conflicting ambitions this school has set for itself.

Going Down Under For adventurous students, UT ' s utili- ty tunnels cramped, grimy, sometimes dangerous, mostly uninteresting - have always had a reputation as the campus ' forbidden underworld. Spreading a lineal distance of almost 30,000 feet, the tunnels carry steam, chilled water and compressed air to almost every building on campus. The tunnels are accessible from most buildings through machine rooms in the basements of the structures. The tunnel network is The Univer- sity ' s soft, vulnerable underbelly. Ex- cept for a few surveillance cameras under the Harry Ransom Center, they are essentially unguarded. Anyone planning a trip into the tun- nels should be forewarned that the penalty for any such excitement can be severe. Students may face academic suspension and a $200 fine; non- students can be jailed for criminal trespass.

It can happen anywhere: on the Drag, on 24th Street, " Kayla DeWees, Students United for Rape Elimination director, said while discussing the problem of campus rape. The Austin Police Department reported two rapes in the University area during the 1982-83 school year. Ac- cording to police research, however, the majority of rapes go unreported. To in- sure students that they would not have to expose themselves to such an attack, both the UT Students ' Association and the University Police Department operated nighttime escort services. SURE, a walking escort service, was started in March 1983 by the Students ' Association to provide men and women with a trained walking companion on late-night trips to the library, dormitory or other campus destination. From 8 p.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, any University student could dial 471- WALK to request an escort. Student senator Meg Brooks designed UT ' s SURE program, patterning it after a model program at Stanford Universi- ty. Brooks said she made some modifications in the system, such as allowing males to use the service and females to serve as escorts. Approximately 45 escorts and phone monitors worked for SURE on a volunteer basis. Escorts carried only flashlights and no weapons, and were trained by representatives from UTPD and the Austin Rape Crisis Center. The escorts were not trained in aggressive self-defense tactics, only to handle a troublesome situation. Students ' Association President Rodney Schlosser said SURE began as part of an association committee. " Now it ' s in a growth stage where it ' s larger than a committee but not quite an in- dependent agency. When it reaches that status, it will spin off from the associa- tion, " he said. Plans were made to hire a paid student director to oversee SURE beginning in fall 1984. The escort service averaged 10 to 15 calls per night, with a peak of 30 calls during fall 1983. " Our problem is get- ting people to call the first time, " Dewees said. " Once they do call, they ' re more willing to call later. " Usage is variable because SURE is not an institution yet, " Brooks said. " I think it will take a good four years for SURE to become an agency with high utilization. " Dewees and Brooks agreed that SURE ' s biggest problem is apathy. " The escort and usage levels are good. What we need most is a more intense in- terest on the part of students, " Brooks said. Dewees said, " With the publicity and public service announcements on radio and TV, I can ' t help but think SURE has done some good. If we can prevent just one rape in four years, then it ' s all worth it. " Another rape prevention program at The University was the campus escort van run by the UT Police Department. UTPD Sgt. W. H. Van Horn said an average of 400 people used the service each month, with the van clocking ap- proximately 1,100 miles per month. " The van has major pick-up points at Kinsolving, Jester Center, Perry- Castaneda Library, the Academic Center, the law school and the East Mall fountain turnaround, " Van Horn said. Callie Donaldson, a uniformed guard who drove the van in the winter and spring, averaged 25 to 30 riders per night. " We try to have the route confined to a 15-minute spread, " Van Horn said, meaning the van passed each stop every 15 minutes. The service operated from dark until 2 a.m. nightly. UTPD also presented a rape preven- tion lecture to groups which request such information. Van Horn said a film called " Not Necessarily Strangers, " which was produced on the UT campus, is shown in combination with a talk about rape prevention measures. " The film provides some scary statistics, " Van Horn said. " For exam- ple, one of every four women before the age of 18 will be sexually abused. And, 78 percent of all assault victims knew their attackers. " We try to put the threat of rape into perspective, " he said. " We briefly cover steps to take if an assault occurs and we urge women to report rapes even if they don ' t intend to prosecute. If you do nothing, you hurt yourself besides hur- ting other potential victims. " " Women tend to feel safe going short distances, say from the library to the dorm, and decide to walk alone, " Dewees said in talking about the need for SURE. " It ' s so simple to prevent that from happening. Just pick up the phone and someone ' s there.

It ' s only a few blocks away, within walking distance of campus. And every day UT students were among other state employees trekking to the State Capitol to work in jobs ranging from tour guides and messengers to interns. The Capitol and other state agency offices provided a learning center for students who came to UT seeking an " education " that focused not only on academics but on what it was like to live and work in Austin. Ann Ramsey, Capitol Guided Tours Director, said jobs at the Capitol al- lowed students to learn about Texas history while experiencing first-hand the functions of state government. " Many students apply for positions at the Capitol because they are interested in pursuing a political career and they see a job here as an opportunity to learn more about the State and more about government, " Ramsey said. " Others ap- ply for positions as a means of subsidiz- ing their schooling, or in some cases, to pay for their schooling, " she added. Tour guides and messengers are assigned to their four and a half-hour shifts after being interviewed at the beginning of each semester by Kelly Ar- nold, Senate Sergeant-at-Arms. Arnold said he looked for students who showed enthusiasm about working at the Capitol students who wanted to be in the middle of the action. " I want to know how they heard about the job, and what made them apply for a position as a guide or messenger, " he said. Senate messengers and interns were also seen around the Capitol complex running errands and delivering messages during the legislative sessions. Senate messengers were sponsored by Intern assistants Jonathan Naizer and Ann Wilkinson work at the State Bar of Texas. Responsibilities of House pages included running errands and delivering messages to legislators. their respective senators and selected to serve the Senate for one-year terms. And through internship programs designed by UT departments such as the Department of Journalism and the Department of Government which pro- vided students with course credit for working in areas related to their major, students learned campaign strategy, how to produce and publish legal publications journals and how to do case work. Ann Wilkinson, public relations senior who interned at the State Bar of Texas, said her journalism internship dealt with all phases of public relations, including work on a newsletter and a magazine and organizing a conference. John Linberg, Plan II senior and a Legislative aid for State Representative Sinfonia Thompson from Houston, began his job at the Capitol as an intern. Linberg was fulfilling the government internship requirement for his degree plan at The University. After com- pleting the internship he was promoted to the Legislative aid position. His job entailed coordinating legislation, doing research of various bills and dealing with lobbyists. " Very few students working at the Capitol are actually given that much responsibility.

He once wanted to be a pediatrician, and calls his own children, Erin and Johnny, his favorite hobby. But even a hobby can have its occasional drawbacks, Daly explained. " The mark of fatherhood is that you always have used food on your clothes. They always decorate you. " Daly was born in Indiana and spent most of his childhood in Washington, D.C. He received his doctorate degree in communication from Purdue Universi- ty, and has been an associate professor in speech communication at The University since 1977. He has done ex- tensive research in various fields of communication and currently edits Written Communication and Com- munication Education, both profes- sional journals. Daly explained part of the appeal of teaching by saying, " It ' s a neat thing to do, to take people and tell them new things and make them go ' oh wow, ' they ' re learning something. " The following is condensed from an interview with Daly in October 1983: " I was lucky; I fell into teaching. I did a lot of things I thought would be neat. I produced concerts in college, I worked on Capitol Hill. But once I did those things, they weren ' t as much fun as I thought they would be. So I went to grad school mostly for lack of anything better to do. I found I liked teaching. " Teaching is really a lot of fun. It also gives me all of the characteristics in a job that I really like, (such as) a lot of flexibility. I can choose to research what I want. It ' s relatively easy to set my own hours. " Teaching also seems to me to be kind of an ultimate responsibility trip. The only way I can explain this is, each semester you walk by the dormitories and you see these parents dropping their kids off. You want to hear the ultimate hook? I think to myself, with my little boy going to school, I would be so pissed if somebody did a bad job of teaching him. I guess I kind of feel that way about teaching kind of one parent to another. " Part of my enthusiasm comes from truly liking what I teach. If I had to teach some class I was not interested in, I ' m not sure I could do it that well, but I do think I would try. Every good teacher I ever had was extroverted and looked like they enjoyed what they were doing. As I got to know them, I found they did enjoy it. " I don ' t think I could be solely a teacher I need to do my research and writing, too. I ' ve done a lot of work on communication apprehension, which is shyness. Conversation processes, how people talk, ' affinity seeking ' - how people get people to like them. Public speaking anxieties, how people write, relationship expectations and neatness. " Teaching wakes me up and research makes me think. They play off each other in a really nice role. What I teach sometimes raises questions in my mind that I can do research on.

Bach spring since the 1960s book- weary college students have flocked to South Padre Island for sun, sand and drinking. " Breakers, " as they have af- fectionately come to be known, migrated to the island from all over the U.S., Colleen Carnevale, Port Isabel- South Padre Island Chamber of Com- merce promotions director, said. " This is a good break from the classroom, " said Jim Shelton, owner of a shop on Padre Boulevard, " just to get the hell out for a few days. It ' s like a release for (students) . . . from the snowstorms, from the classrooms. " Most breakers found their release in drinking, and activities on the Island reinforced the impetus to consume massive quantities of alcohol. Carnevale said spring break activities, sponsored by national companies and coordinated by the Chamber of Commerce, had a long history on the island. " Budweiser really got things going, and then Miller joined in and it ' s just grown from there, " she said. At the south end of the Island, Budweiser sponsored message centers and a WATS telephone line from which students could call anywhere in the U.S. for three minutes, free of charge. In an effort to keep the Island clean and pro- mote their beer, Budweiser sponsored a can exchange at which Frisbees, T- shirts and various other prizes were traded for a certain number of aluminum cans. The Stroh ' s promotion was located further north and featured a photo booth. " For $1, the kids get their pic- tures taken in front of an inflatable can, " Carnevale said. " They also get a T-shirt, a can koozie, a poster and a beachbag. " Skoal sponsored a tug-of-war in which losers were dragged into a giant margarita concocted in a sand pit on the beach. The margarita was chosen because Jimmy Buffett ' s song, " Margaritaville, " is considered the an- them of the island. Carnevale said sponsors do not make money on their promotions. Adding that, Budweiser lost a quarter of a million dollars on its performances. However, the opportunity to be exposed to so many young consumers is probably worth the loss, she said. Lisa Baker Austin ' s Joe " King " Carrasco and the Crowns entertain a spring break audience during a free concert on the beach sponsored by Miller Brewing Co. NIGHTLIFE El. Changing Scenes Now closed, Nightlife bares an empty marquee. __ he most significant musical 5 event in Austin in 1983 was neither a concert nor an album, but a casualty of the cruelest sort. A club called Nightlife, previously and popularly known as Club Foot, was forced to permanently shut its doors due to financial difficulties. Club Foot, which became Nightlife in June 1983, opened in 1980 but took several months before attracting any at- tention or building any momentum. But finally it did and over the next few years it hosted such national acts as the Go- Gos, R.E.M., Stray Cats, James Brown and the Motels. The Club constantly took chances, booking many of these acts when they were still struggling for national attention, only to lose them to larger halls when they returned to Austin for a major concert appearance at the Erwin Center. Many of the best local bands, including Joe " King " Car- rasco and the Crowns, the Judys and Rank and File also played Club Foot. Club Foot, however, was only the latest entry in a list of prominent clubs in Austin ' s music history. In the late six- ties, the Vulcan Gas Company was home to the psychedelic, country, and folk rock bands of its era. After folding in 1970, the Gas Company was followed by the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters. In the mid-seventies, the Armadillo was one of the most famous rock halls in the country. There, Willie Nelson first found an audience and pro- gressive rock was born. For a decade, Austin bands strove to perform at the club and usually did. By the time it closed in December 1980, however, the developing music scene had shifted to a small club on the Drag, Raul ' s, which soon became the hub of Austin ' s punk and new wave rock scene. Places like the Armadillo and Raul ' s were different from other local clubs because they attempted to nurture new talent. They also became the center of well-defined and easily discernable music scenes. With the close of Raul ' s, the music scene in Austin degenerated into a vir- tual state of limbo. Musical styles sud- denly came into constant conflict with one another, but without a dominant club, none reigned supreme. Although Club Foot was the most important club, locally, it was never as much an in- cubator for talent as Raul ' s and the Ar- madillo were. In the end, Club Foot ' s allegiance to a particular scene hurt it as much as it had helped in the beginning. Austin Chronicle music critic Margaret Moser said the club " had always been tagged with the punk rock emporium label and that tended to alienate a lot of people who otherwise might have patronized the club. In a desperate attempt to expand au- dience appeal, Club Foot made some changes, including a name change to Nightlife and the addition of video screens to accommodate the current music video craze. However, the changes came too late . On Dec. 3, 1983 Nightlife closed. Club manager Shirley Staples commented on the closing . . . " blame our sky-high operating costs . . . past bills, shrinking audiences . . . fatigue. " After Club Foot Nightlife ' s closing, many clubs still existed as venues for local performance. They ranged from Cardi ' s which featured mostly heavy metal groups to Antone ' s, Austin ' s home of the blues. The Continental Club did its best to provide a location for new talent and Soap Creek Saloon played host to many long time regional headliners. Yet a " hot " club in Austin around remained to be seen. What existed was Austin ' s staple musical style: rhythm and blues. Moser said, " My feeling is that every time there ' s not a scene in Austin, the focus falls back on rhythm and blues. And it ' s not so much a focus, but that the rhythm and blues scene is Austin ' s con- stant, even more so than country music.

ON STAGE Starstruck Students o you want to be a star. It ' s 1 a.m., you ' re still on stage and you have a killer physics exam in nine hours. For musicians in the Argyles and the Wait and local comedienne Romie Angelich, it was just another night. Balancing class work with club perfor- mances, these UT students were trying to become professional entertainers. Probably the best-known student band in Austin, the Argyles released their first album, " Picture In My Pocket, " this spring. " We ' re very UT- oriented, " lead vocalist Brown Cathell said, " because the very first thing we ever did together was a talent show in the Union. " Other band members were Bryan Anderton, Kyle Harvey, Ward Heiney and Jim Wheeler. Cathell added, " School parties and frat parties gave us a chance to play together and get to a certain proficien- cy. When we first played a club we freaked the club people out because we already had a following and we ' d never played a club before. " But was it possible to graduate and have a career in which screaming fans wanted to tear off your clothes? Harvey, bass player, graduated with an electrical engineering degree in December, but the band admitted it was not easy. " I could do better with the band and do better with school if I weren ' t doing one or the other, " Cathell said, but add- ed, " I don ' t think you really have to choose. I think you can do both if you just get in tense. " The Wait had something in common with the Argyles: both placed second in the Texas Union ' s Talent show (the Argyles in 1982, the Wait in 1983). Rob Templansky and Jerome Schoolar played together in a few bands when they attended high school in Temple; they found the remaining two band members, Mark McKenzie and Mike McLaughlin, through a poster in the Music Building. The band was asked back to the Union to play for the March 2 In- dependence Day Celebration and had begun to get bookings at fraternity bashes. In the process, the group re- ceived much-needed exposure and ex- perience. Schoolar said, " We ' ve gotten to the point now where we ' ve got the show down. Every concert, I feel we get a little better. " Though the Wait is a rock band members have had more diverse musica training. " I ' ve been playing (piano) since I was six years old. I ' d never played rock n ' roll. I ' d only playec classical. " Schoolar also had experience in classical music and sang with the UT Concert Chorale. McLaughlin said he " only started playing last year, " so he compensated for his limited experience with " theatrics. " Romie Angelich and Bo Smithson both UT students, were the first loca comics to perform at the Comed Workshop when it opened in August 1982. While Smithson left The Univer- sity to pursue a professional career Angelich pursued the same goal while staying in school. A communication sophomore, Angelich worked 40 hours a week at the Workshop and performec every Monday on local talent night. Angelich said, " For Bo, comedy was more important and he made that deci sion. I just tried to balance the twc (school and performing). " Still, late-night performances, writing: sessions, and social activities require that something be sacrificed. Angelich said one way she managed was by sacrificing sleep. Being a college student influenced her work, Angelich said, explaining that she! tended to make her material " somewhat literary. " A friend analyzed Angelich ' a problem as writer ' s conceit: " You write things to show how intelligent you are rather than how funny you are. It ' s be- ing clever rather than being funny. " Last summer Angelich went to New York City to visit Catch a Rising Star. Both beginning and well-established comics come to the club to develop their act, she said. She went on stage one night to perform a short set, but said, " went on very late and it didn ' t go ove very well. " Despite the problems of performing Angelich said she still wants to be a pro fessional comic. " I ' m getting paid (not whole lot) for gigs already, but it ' s no my profession yet, " she said. At present, Angelich must balance her professional goals with the realities of attending school, but for her, the tra work is worthwhile. She said, can ' t imagine myself just being a stu dent, it would seem so boring in com- parison to what ' s going on here.

CENTER OF ATTENTION ' n 1983-84, The University ' s Performing Arts Center attracted A scene from " War and Peace. the boards of its Concert Hall. The PAC was built at an estimated cost of $41 million in 1981. The complex consisted of the 3,000-seat Concert Hall, the 400-seat Opera Lab Theater, the Fine Arts Library and the 700-seat Bates Recital Hall. Boasting facilities comparable to the Lincoln Center in New York City, the PAC began luring big-name artists and Broadway touring companies previously find in larger cities. For the 83-84 season, the PAC brought national touring companies of " Oliver! " and " Fiddler on the Roof and artists like Marilyn Home, flutist James Galway and the Twyla Tharp Dance Company. The PAC ' s most ambitious endeavor came at the end of the spring semester when it housed the English National Opera Company ' s extravagant four and one-half hour produc- tion of " War and Peace " May 31 and June 2 at the Concert Hall. The opera company chose Austin ' s PAC and New York ' s Metropolitan Opera House for the only American stagings of the production. Former UT opera director Walter DuCloux said the pro- duction " will bring to attention the magnificent quality of (the , PAC ' s) performance facilities.

" Andy Tieman plays a Pharaoh whose send-up of Elvis Presley conies complete with greased hair Music Enhances Summer Theater What do you get when you mix a variety of musical styles ranging from rock and pop to country-western, jazz and calypso with a tale from the Old Testament? Audiences at the B. Iden Payne Theater found out when Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat kicked off the UT sum- mer theater season June 24. Based on the biblical story of Joseph and his 11 brothers, the musical was the first collaboration from composers Tim Rice and An- drew Lloyd Webber. After " Joseph " opened in London in 1968, the duo went on to create their smash success, " Jesus Christ Superstar. " Director Kathleen Conlin updated " Joseph " for the 1980s with new wave costumes, contemporary danc- ing and flashing lights. This ' 80s flair distinguished the UT production from the 1982 revival that was simultaneously running on Broad- way, in which " Joseph " was left firm- ly rooted in ' 60s culture. The result was an enthusiastic 90- minute production that resembled a rock concert more than theater. Cast members crooned into microphones while they danced on a set made of metal scaffolding and plexiglass. Perched atop pedestals throughout the show, Lannyl Kilchrist and Gene Cook musically narrated the story of Joseph and his coat. They sang about how Joseph, played by Rick Herbst, was receiving a great deal of attention due to his flamboyant coat. This fame did not please Joseph ' s envious brothers. Knocking him un- conscious, they sold him to an Egyp- tian slave trader. Joseph did not remain a slave for long. When his prophetic way of in- terpreting dreams was discovered, he became a favorite of the Pharaoh. With Joseph appointed economic ad- visor of the kingdom, his brothers begged forgiveness. After a moment of decision, Joseph showered his brothers with fraternal love and wealth. Having delivered the original Bible story ending with moral intact, the rock musical closed with the entire ensemble singing " Any Dream Will Do. " Dave Carlin Audiences in the Theatre Room saw humans transformed into horses when the UT production of Strider opened June 30. The play, combining experimental theater techniques with a short story by Leo Tolstoy, was first performed in the Soviet Union in 1975. An English translation was obtained in 1979 and " Strider " debuted in America as part of a cultural ex- change program. The production told its story from a horse ' s point of view, using music, drama, dance and mime. Calling for performers to play both horses and humans, " Strider " showcased a talented and versatile UT cast. The play opened with an elderly horse, played by James McWilliams, Wl MSS liy: S M ?$ i-t ' t$plgl S ik; ' x :-s4i about to be destroyed by a drunken stable hand. While his soon-to-be ex- ecutioner dozed, the old horse recounted his eventful life to the younger horses in the stable. In flashbacks the audience learned of the horse ' s traumatic youth and how he was shunned all his life for be- ing born piebald. The stallion reflected on his happier days as a colt with his one love, Viazapurikha, played by Becca Rauscher. An excellent racer, the horse was named Strider and won several cham- pionships for his master, the Prince Serpuhofsky. Strider ' s happiness did not last. The Prince, alcoholic after having lost his fortune, abused the horse. Strider was returned to his original owner, who did not recognize the animal. At this point the play came full cir- cle. Strider ' s owner ordered the stable hand to slit the horse ' s throat. In a riveting climax, the stage lights turned fiery red and the horse was killed. This abrupt ending shocked the audience into reflecting on what they had seen. With the actors making transitions from humans to animals without costume changes, the production had drawn parallels. Illustrating the trials and triumphs of Strider ' s life, the production ultimately asked the question, " Are horses and men really that different? " Dave Carlin The colt, Strider, meets the philly, Viazapurikha, with whom he has an unrequited love affair. The last installment of UT Summer Theater Series took audiences in the Opera Lab Theater on a musical voyage through the life and work of one of the theater ' s greatest composers. Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill opened July 8, and with narration and song, traced Weill ' s career from his early days in war-torn Germanyto his later life in America. Michael Montague and Blake Hammond sing a duet from Kurt Weill ' s early musical, " Happy End. " The set in Act I represented Berlin during the ' 20s. Lighting and scenery recreated the mood of the dark taverns and streets that played a ma- jor role in Weill ' s early musicals. Beautiful harmonies and solos brought to life Weill ' s best from " Threepenny Opera, " and " Happy End. " With lyrics by Bertolt Brecht, these works contained social commentaries and innovation. Between songs, Constance Hutchinson, Terri Easter, Micheal Montague and Blake Hammond narrated the events of Weill ' s life. Act I concluded with 1930. That year, Weill heard Adolf Hitler denounce his work, and fled from Germany. Act II marked Weill ' s arrival in New York and a change in his musical style. Instead of continuing as a musical theater innovator, Weill chose to emulate the style of American Broadway composers. With the set, lights and costumes more cheerful in the second act, the quartet closed out the evening with selections from Weill ' s Broadway triumph " Lost in the Stars. " Dave Carlin 1 Fall Plays Showcase UT Talent An ambitious production transported Theater Room au- diences to early 20th Century I reland, Oct. 4-5 and 13-15. The UT Department of Drama production of The Playboy of the Western World, through artful setting, costumes and lighting, recreated the mood of a rustic Irish tavern. In this setting, talented actors, mastering the language of John Millington Synge ' s poetic script, convinced au- diences they were actually watching Irish villagers in a small coastal town. The theater-in-the-round stage had audiences close to the characters and action of the play. The plot con- cerned an outsider named Christopher Mahon, played by Don Stroud, and his arrival in a small town populated by hypocritical peo- ple. The timid boy was on the run, fearing he had dealt a fatal blow to his overbearing father. His violent story of patricide impressed the townspeople, who saw it in exciting contrast to their own drab lives. The villagers proclaimed Christopher a " playboy " and exalted him to local hero status. The bar- maid, Pegeen Mike, played by Cam- bron Henderson, was particularly taken with the stranger. In the second act, the father everyone had presumed dead arrived in the town seeking vengeance. When the father publicly confronted Christopher, the son attempted to keep his image of bravery intact by attacking the old man once again. The townspeople were horrified to witness violence in its cold and brutal reality. Using Pegeen Mike to lure their fallen idol into a trap, the crowd prepared to hang Christopher for murder. The father, having once again survived a " fatal " blow, stag- gered into the tavern in time to prove his son ' s innocence. The father was amazed and pleas- ed to see that his son was not a spineless jellyfish and could stand up for himself. Christopher having shown true bravery in the face of death, had grown up. Christopher set out, leaving the townspeople and his father far behind, finally worthy of his title, " playboy of the western world.

Dink O ' Neal as Nandor and Kelly Korzan as his beloved spouse, Ilona, portrayed a feuding theatrical couple. Arriving at their six month anniver- sary, Nandor began to question the endurance of Ilona ' s love. He decided to test her virtue by masquerading as Ilona ' s " fantasy love, " a Russian guardsman. Disguised as a guardsman, Nandor attempted to seduce his wife. He suc- ceeded; Ilona was unfaithful to Nan- dor, the husband, with Nandor, the guardsman. Upon his questioning, however, she managed to convince Nandor that she had never known a guardsman. In fact, she spoke so convincingly, she even persuaded Nandor to believe he never portrayed such a man. However, at the prodding of the ever cynical " friend of the family, " Bela, Nandor revealed the farce to his wife.

This staging gave the illusion of be- ing in a London marketplace during the Elizabethan period. After this initial surge of merri- ment, the colorful production retold the classic Thomas Dekker comedy about two separated lovers and their attempts to be reunited. Despite their guardians ' efforts to keep them apart, Rowland and Rose found a method to achieve this end. Rowland, played by Randall Rapstine, disguised himself as a Dutch shoemaker while scheming a way back to Rose, played by Linda Pennington. Seeking a job with the town ' s shoemaker, Simon Eyre, Rowland helped his new employer seek great fortune by speculating on a ship ' s unclaimed cargo. Simon, played by David Baker, and his wife, Margery, played by Lannyl Kilchrist, grew in social prominence and were invited to the manor of Rose ' s guardian. At this party, Rowland was reunited with Rose. With Simon elevated to the posi- tion of Lord Mayor, he repaid the man who helped him attain his for- tune. He approved the marriage of Rowland and Rose and convinced their guardians into giving consent. The festivities were heightened by the appearance of the King, who granted shoemakers two market days a week to mark the occasion. Peggy Verkin Simon Eyre, center, observes Hans ' " shoemanship.

PAC Presents Touring Musicals Tradition. It was a notion as close to the hearts of students at the University of Texas this Centennial year as it was to the peasants of Anatevka in Czarist Russia of 1905. This theme of tradition brought Herschel Bernardi and the national touring company of Fiddler On The Roof to the Performing Arts Center Sept. 6-11. The story of a gentle Jewish milkman and the erosion of deep- rooted tradition was as fresh and heartwarming as when it opened on Broadway in 1964. As the story opened, the audience was drawn into the Jewish village, Anatevka, as Tevye explained the roles of the family. Papa was the pro- vider, Mama the homemaker. Sons and daughters were to follow their parents ' footsteps. Tevye ' s daughters, however, were to break tradition and follow their hearts. When they married and left home, Tevye realized that maybe tradition was meant to be changed. " I ' ve got the man for your daughter, " announces Yente the matchmaker in " Fiddler on the Roof. " 68 Drama m rH r u icals Elizabeth van den Berg as the compassionate Nancy sings " It ' s A Fine Life " to her cockney friends in " Oliver! " The play ' s moods varied from religious devotion in the moving " Sabbath Prayer " to rowdy in the amusing " If I Were A Rich Man. " Joy and celebration were abundant at the wedding of Motel (Charles Bari) and Tzeitel (Lori Jaroslow). Having played Tevye on Broadway for two years, Herschel Bernardi showed stunning resilience. With numerous asides to God, Bernardi mingled Tevye ' s respect with a touch of humor. Thelma Lee, who portrayed Tevye ' s wife, Golde, was appropriate- ly nagging and worried about her dauthers ' marriages. However, a gentler side of her shown in a humorous, yet touching rendition of " Do You Love Me? " As families prepared to leave Anatevka at the bidding of the anti- Semitic Czar, their hearts were heavy, but their faith remained strong. The townspeople found that love and God would always keep them together. They would always have their tradition, for, as Tevye said, " Without tradition, our lives would be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof. " Lynn Weaver Cold, stiff winds tackled trees and danced with leaves. People on the streets were wrapped up to their shiny red noses. Yet, in the heart of the city, at the Performing Arts Center Nov. 27, glowed the com- forting warmth of Oliver! Fagin inspects pick-pocketed merchandise. The flavor and spirit of early 19th century England survived in this modern stage adaption of Charles Dickens ' novel, Oliver Twist. Oliver, played by Zachary Stier, was an orphan, whose life channelled along the strict confines of survival and obedience. After devouring the few morsels allowed him, Oliver ex- tended his bowl and asked " Can I have some more? " All Oliver asked from life was a lit- tle more. However, just like food, he was denied it. Stier emulated this loneliness in a touching version of " Where is Love? " Oliver ran away and ironically found friendship among a group of pick-pocketing misfits. The artful dodger, played by Todd Louiso, ex- tended his hand to Oliver in " Con- sider Yourself and Nancy, played by Elizabeth Van Den Berg, lost her life for Oliver ' s salvation. Van Den Berg had exceptional stage presence and her voice emoted beyond the realm of mere performance in " It ' s A Fine Life " and " As Long as He Needs Me. " The finale, on the surface, seemed typical as Oliver was discovered by wealthy relatives, but profundity thrived beneath in Oliver ' s affinity for the contents of people ' s hearts rather than their pockets. Lewis Henderson Drama 69 UT Offers Classic Spring Drama When the UT Department of Drama decided to present a play with an unfinished script and only three weeks of rehearsal, nobody expected a great production. But when the unfinished script turned out to be the classic drama Woyzeck and the cast consisted of experienced junior and senior acting students, the result was one of the most compelling productions Austin had seen in a long time. " Woyzeck, " a psychological case- study of a man left mentally devastated by a cruel and ex- ploitative society, was the depart- ment ' s experimental bid for the season and played Jan. 20-Feb. 2 in the Theater Room. The story was based on the life of Johann Christian Woyzeck, a Ger- man soldier convicted of murdering his common-law wife, and later publicly executed in 1824. Playwright Georg Buchner began researching the case to bring Woyzeck ' s story to the stage. But Buchner died in 1837 before the play ' s completion, leaving behind a mass of unnumbered scenes. Each scene was short and self-contained. Like all of the previous directors of " Woyzeck, " UT director Lee Abra- ham was faced with the challenge of choosing which translation from Ger- man to use and how to place the 27 short scenes in cohesive order. The end result was a montage of scenes that effectively explored the workings of Woyzeck ' s mind. The intensification of his mental deterioration occurred when Woyzeck, played by Dink O ' Neal, discovered that his common-law wife, Marie, played by Christi Carafano, was cheating on him. Voices promp- ted Woyzeck to kill his sweetheart. In the depths of despair, Woyzeck gave in to the voices and, in a riveting climax, killed Marie. Abraham utilized the intimate sur- roundings of the Theater Room. To accommodate the play ' s quick suc- cession of scenes, the stage consisted of five bare platforms. This general acting area allowed the short scenes to unfold continuously without the interruption of set changes. The direction used modern ex- perimental theater techniques to il- lustrate the effect of abuse on Woyzeck. As Woyzeck gradually lost his sanity, the play made a transition from realistic to wildly expressionistic. Using experimental theater, the cast transported the audience to a lake, a carnival or tavern without the aid of props or scenery. To be expected from an unfinished play, the ending was abrupt and open-ended. But the play left memories of artful direction and superb performances.

An inspiration to people as diverse as Sigmund Freud (the Oedipal complex) and the Doors ( " The End, " ) Oedipus Rex and his plight has disturbed countless generations. For director Gordon Peacock, the challenge was to make Sophocles ' play, written in the fifth century B.C., come alive for the modern au- dience. Peacock was the guest direc- tor for the UT Department of Drama ' s production of Oedipus Rex, presented Feb. 21-26 in the Perform- ing Arts Center Opera Lab Theater. Emulating the masks of classical Greek theater, actors wore partial masks covering the upper halves of their faces. The production was innovative in the brightly colored costumes of red, green and blue, and in the massive pyramid-shaped set. The set sug- gested an unusual combination of palace gate and church sanctuary; its sheer size was striking. This proved to be a disadvantage at times since the set filled half the stage and tend- ed to cramp the actors ' movements. As a whole, the acting was compe- tent. Dink O ' Neal starred as the proud, almost arrogant king of the plague-infested city who is warned the pestilence will not end until the murderer of the king is expelled. The part of Jocasta, Oedipus ' wife, who begs him to cease his search before it reveals she is his mother, was played by Kelly Korean. Other key players were Timothy Greer as the seer Tiberius and David Baker as Creon, Jocasta ' s brother. Brian Zabcik Double double identity pro- blems confused audiences when the Department of Drama presented William Shakespeare ' s Comedy of Errors. This farce of mistaken identity played to capacity audiences in the Theater Room of the Winship Drama Building during a mid-April run. In this tale, Shakespeare spins a web of confusion around two sets of identical twins with identical names who are separated in childhood from their siblings and parents in a ship- wreck. The two sets of twins, each with rich merchants named An- tipholus and comic servants named Dromio, happen to meet and become mixed in Ephesus on the day the father of the Antipholuses was to be executed there. Director Paul Gaffney did an outstanding job changing the setting from Shakespeare ' s time to the 19th century, in costume if not language. Both sets of twins kept the au- dience chuckling with lines and ac- tions. Veryl Midler, as the Dromio of Syracus, was especially funny, taking advantage of the fool-like lines Shakespeare gave the part. His counterpart Antipholus, David Baker, carried off the confusion and comic haughtiness of his role. The production succeeded in catching the lightness of the play and the audience gave enthusiastic ap- proval. Thomas Trahan The twin brother Antipholus of Syracus makes a proposal to the confused and flustered Luciana. British Opera Group Brings Epic Production to Austin Opera fans from all over the country flocked to Austin when the English National Opera Com- pany presented its United States premiere of War and Peace at the Performing Arts Center May 31 and June 2. The opera, based on Leo Tolstoy ' s epic novel detailed Napoleon ' s 1812 invasion of Russia, was performed in English. Composer Sergei Prokofiev began writing the monumental opera in 1941 and continued revising it un- til his death in 1953. For the four and one-half hour pro- duction, the English National Opera utilized a company of more than 350 members and a tour budget ex- ceeding $3 million. The Performing Arts Center hous- ed the ENO ' s entire entourage of 60 principal singers, a chorus of more than 80, four conductors, 17 trailers of scenery, 10,000 costumes and 1,000 wigs and hair pieces. Although the British company toured five American cities, only two had staging facilities large enough to accommodate the grandiose " War and Peace " - the PAC and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City ' s Lincoln Center. In Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans, the ENO prersented other less extravagant operas. Negotiations to bring the highly ac- claimed British opera to the PAC began in 1982, when PAC director Clinton Norton first heard of the ENO ' s interest in touring the U.S. The U.S. Friends of the English Na- tional Opera was formed to guarantee the production. Janie Briscoe, University of Texas Systems Regent, was appointed to head the U.S. Friend ' s board of directors. Playing to a full house on opening night, the production was divided in- to two parts by a dinner break. The performance translated Leo Tolstoy ' s epic novel into 13 episodes. Lavish sets and colorfully detailed back projections enhanced each of the numerous scenes. The production ' s greatest strength was the music. The lyrical warmth of Prokofiev ' s score was conveyed through strong vocal and orchestral arrangements. The producti on served two impor- tant functions. Not only did the per- formance call national attention to the University ' s Performing Arts Center, but it helped to also further Austin ' s reputation as a cultural mec- ca in the Southwest.

Dance Groups Present New, Modern Works With all the grandeur perpetually associated with the ballet, Leonid and Valentine Kozlov began their premiere American tour accompanied by a repertoire of eight noted dancers. Presented by Austin Ballet Theater, the Kozlov ' s Oct. 4 appearance at the Performing Arts Center was nothing short of spectacular. The Kozlovs sought political asylum in the U.S. after leaving Russia ' s Bolshoi Ballet following the company ' s American tour in 1979. Since that time, the pair enjoyed numerous guest appearances with well known American companies. With a personal invitation from choreographer George Balanchine, the Kozlovs made their artistic home the New York City Ballet in the Spr- ing of 1983. Starring in their own company for the first time, the Kozlov ' s PAC per- Twyla Tharp and her company of modern dancers kept audiences spellbound at the PAC Nov. 8-13. formance proved a great success for the duo. Leonid Kozlov ' s original adapta- tion of the famous " Giselle " pas de deux featured the Kozlovs as Albrecht and the ghost of his lover in a touching scene at her grave. The program continued with an unusual and sensuous ballet, featur- ing Tamara Hadley and William DeGregory, titled " Under the Sun. " Inspired by a mobile sculpture by ar- tist Alexander Calder, the dance presented the pair moving seductive- ly under a fluttering sun structure. " Don Quixote " provided a colorful and poignant finale, utilizing the talents of all 10 dancers. Austin seemed happy that the Kozlovs had defected from the U.S.S.R. to bring them a performance donned with originality and arrayed with superb artists. Tracy Brown From Nov. 8-13, 1983, UT was pleased to welcome to both its stage and classrooms perhaps the most innovative choreographer of our time. Twyla Tharp spent her days in residency sharing her methods with UT dance enthusiasts and spent her nights thrilling audiences with a menagerie of her greatest works. In addition, Tharp unveiled two world premieres during her only residency of the season. Perhaps her most creative ideas were brought forth in an untitled premiere Nov. 11, 1983. " Untitled " did not resemble other Tharp works. The moves ranged from jazzy and ethnic to rigid and robotic. The dancers entered and exited the stage through a hazy mist on a blackened stage, as white lights shone into the audience. This scene was intensified by the colorful makeup of the dancers, which matched the 74 Dance I audiences with a of the the geometric patterns of their psychedelic bodysuits. The accompanying score was a combination of vocal chants and elec- tmnic instruments. This heightened the energy of the dance and added to the futuristic effect of the work. The second part, and the shorter of the two, featured the company ' s creator. In this dramatic scene, Tharp seemed to portray a sad woman bidding farewell to friends. Among only the male members of her troupe, Tharp stood out vividly as a bereved, departing woman. The scene moved poetically as the dancers glid- ed across the floor. Unlike the open- ing scene, this part resembled the same kind of classical style that characterized Tharp ' s earlier works. Following an intermission, Tharp ' s troupe performed " Baker ' s Dozen. " In this short piece, the dancers utiliz- ed modern ballet movements. This piece contrasted the style of " Untitl- ed " and demonstrated the versatility and talent of Tharp ' s dancers. Although her stay seemed brief, Tharp left students with a clue to her technique and left her audience with a taste of the future trends in modern dance. Marikay Norris North Carolina dance " In the Tropics. " The curtains rose slowly on an " Allegro Brillante " scene that opened the performance of the North Carolina Dance Theater at the Performing Arts Center on Nov. 18. Dancers Terri Wright and Richard Prewitt were spotlighted in the in- timate scene, which dissolved into lively merriment as other dancers glided around the couple. One of America ' s most respected young dance companies, the North Carolina Dance Theater was a profes- sional affiliate of the North Carolina School of the Arts. The visual high point of the even- ing came in the second number, " Resettings. " The dancers changed, stomped and clapped in the varying rhythms of modern dance. Using acrobatic movements, the dancers moved from the classical ballet of the first scene to an " art of the body " style of dance. The ballet team performed the third number, " A Night in the Tropics, " which, judging from the reaction, was the audience ' s favorite. " Opening Movement, " " The Tango, " " Guaracha " and " Conga " were performed in a series of solos, duets and ensembles combining Latin American dance with classical ballet. After a brief intermission, the dancers returned with a finale of " Pentimento. " In this intricate scene, they performed a series of dances wearing masks and wigs. Behind them was the reappearance, or penmento, on canvas, of images that had been covered by another pain- ting. Sheryl Conner Members of North Carolina Dance Theater use precision to express a modern dance style during their performance of " Resettings " at the PAC on Nov. 18. Dance 75 Dancers Explore Unique Themes %A ith finals breathing down the necks of most students, the UT Dance Repetory Theatre had engineered the perfect study break and an educational one at that. Nov. 30-Dec. 2 in the Theater Room, the UT dancers offered a primer course on the making of dance through Dance Works in Progress. A visual art, dance required some training of the eye to make sense of the complex, bizarre images on stage. Lectures by choreographer Sharon Vasquez and assistant professor of drama Barbara Barker com- plemented the showing of three un- finished works: " Untitled, " " Pas de Quatre " and " Variations. " Vasquez introduced her 1 -week-old piece, " Untitled, " by inviting the au- dience back in April to see the finish- ed product. Although the dancers were slightly uneasy with the new material, some interesting patterns emerged. For instance, the 10 dancers formed a circle and spinned. As their bodies gathered speed, female dancers flung their bodies into the air, creating a star pattern. Dance historian Barker put Leon Danielian ' s restaging of " Pas de Quatre " into perspective. She said the piece capitalized on the rivalry between four ballerinas of the Romantic Age Fanny Cerrito, Carlotta Grisi, Lucille Grahn and Maria Taglioni. Although the performance lacked the competitive fire the original dancers must have brought to their roles, the UT dancers hammed ti up with subtle sight gags. The final dance was Yacov Sharir ' s restaging of " Variations. " The com- pany had the appeal of a group of brooding Nadia Comenicis. One minute they performed frantic gym- nastic steps, and the next moment they became passive robots. In addition, the dancers formed geometric patterns resembling the style of Pilobolus, a modern dance company. However, the Sharir dancers have not mastered the fluid style of Philobulus dancers. " Dance Works in Progress " was a behind-the-scenes look at UT ' s thriv- ing dance program. For people with an open mind, the experience was in- formative and fun.

Dancers on skateboards, roller skates, a unicycle and a grocery cart opened the first scene of Dance Repertory Theater ' s All Things Past and Present. The piece, " Some Comments on Ending, " wa s one of six works per- formed in B. Iden Payne theater by the UT dance group on April 18-21. The second scene took 10 dancers into a silent " Journey " where they in- timately intermingled in a corner of the stage and then lured each other out to the center in a slow-moving, snake-like pattern. In " Interchangeable Parts, " the audience was humored as four male dancers used jittery movements. The atmosphere shifted to the scene of " Nice and Easy, " using classical music and six dancers silhouetted against a blue background. As the music turned to upbeat jazz, the background changed from blue to pink and climaxed with bright red at the end of the scene. In the last scene, the dancers used a taunt rope to pull two of the dancers in opposite directions. Using the rope to suggest emotional en- tanglement and stress, this intimate scene of " Lifelines " ended the perfor- mance. Sheryl Conner The finale to " All Things Past and Present " symbolizes emotional entanglement. Dane 77 MUSIC MINI Bowie Rocks Into The ' 80s The Erwin Center stage, set with three translucent columns towering from floor to ceiling, warned the crowd on Aug. 20 that they might be in for a bizarre evening. Certainly, bizarre was something to be expected from legendary musician-innovator David Bowie. But one thing kept the audience puzzled. Would this concert reflect the avant-garde Bowie of the ' 70s or the more mainstream Bowie of the ' 80s? Fans of Bowie ' s early flamboyantly-dressed alter egos along with newer fans of his 1983 album " Let ' s Dance " waited to find out. Bowie mounted the stage amid a dazzling display of computerized lights. Bowie played up his pop star image, running through recent hits like " China Girl " and " Let ' s Dance " early in the first half of the concert. During the second half, Bowie revisited his older material. To close the concert, Bowie brought the crowd back to the ' 80s with an en- core of " Modern Love " from the " Let ' s Dance " album. Dave Carlin Ross Excites Full House There are times when a star can become so overwhelmingly famous that the reality of the concert does not really matter. For the sold- out crowd at the Erwin Center on Sept. 10, it was simply enough that they were part of the experience that was a Diana Ross concert. Ross had been performing for over two decades now, and as might be ex- pected, she had learned to put on a fail-safe, guaranteed entertaining show. Her singing was technically ex- cellent, much like a well-tuned in- strument. She knew the right gestures to make it look as if she was expressing emotion in her songs. Opening with " Ain ' t No Mountain High Enough, " probably her best known solo release, Ross highlighted her concert with a pulsing upbeat rendition of her best-known hits from the ' 70s and ' 80s, including " Reach Out and Touch, " " Upside Down " and " I ' m Coming Out. " Overall, she did a better job with the romantic ballads, such as " Endless Love " and " Do You Know Where You ' re Going To, " the theme from " Mahoghany. " But for many people in the au- dience, it was the old Supremes hits that they were looking for. Ross ran through a medley of choruses from some of their 1960s Motown classics. But throughout the concert, she kept references about her former group to a minimum. In the end, Ross ' concert proved that the little girl from Detroit had indeed come a long way. Ross, who had started out as a secretary at Motown records and rose to stardom in the ' 60s with the Supremes, had won the hearts of Austin. As the crowd left the arena, they seemed grateful to have been part of the ex- perience that was the Diana Ross concert. Brian Zabcik COLIN HAY MEN AT WORK Fall Concerts Reflect Diversity As lights in the Frank Erwin Center dimmed, a silhouette appeared above the stage. The excite- ment soared as the music rose above the screams, and Rick Springfield descended upon his audience. This singer-songwriter-performer ' s " Af- fair of the Heart " with Austin had begun. Clad in black leather pants and open vest, Springfield took ad- vantage of his sex appeal and sultry voice to dispel his image as a " bub- blegum " pop singer. While pursuing a career as an ac- tor, Springfield signed a contract with RCA records in 1980. His musical talent and television ex- posure in the soap opera " General Hospital, " combined to produce million-seller appeal. This appeal was especially promi- nent Aug. 28 when Springfield, using special effects, smoke and an elevated stage, thrilled his audience with jumps, spins and his renditions of " What Kind of Fool am I, " " Don ' t Ta lk to Strangers " and " I ' ve Done Everything For You. " Springfield ' s electric " I Get Excited, " seemed to appropriately consummate the star ' s effect on his audience. Julie Del Barto It takes clever performers to turn the cavern of the Erwin Center ' s interior into anything resembling an intimate nightclub. But Elvis Costello managed it on Sept. 7. Costello offered what amounted to a full reinterpretation of his music. A sense of alluring mystery replaced the anger and misanthropy that characterized much of Costello ' s singing early in his career. The concert was broadcast live over radio, and therefore had an ins- tant attendance in the millions. This fact Elvis left understated, but it ad- ded an undercurrent of excitement to his performance. Michael Saenz The darkness enveloped the night as the steam rose languidly from the deck. Palm trees were silhouetted against the backdrop of the deep pur- ple eventide. Clearly, it was not " Business As Usual " Sept. 10, when Men At Work appeared at the Frank Erwin Center. They were energetic and brought with them excitement, freshness and wit. The band was novel in its perfor- mance due mainly to its lead singer, Colin Hay. He captivated the au- dience with his throaty warbling and amusing disposition. Chatting with a group of latecomers, he jokingly brag- ged, " We came all the way from Australia but we got here on time! " The lighting crew created an exotic show by flooding the stage in hues of purple and sunset orange. " The Men " incorporated a vivacious Australian personality into the music, making it highstrung and true to their recorded versions. They finished the show with their first stateside hit, " Who Can It Be Now? " The Erwin Center rumbled with the cheering of the crowd as they surged the stage, satisfied to be seeing Men at Work at play. Lisa Maddry Remember all the times Mom told you to come in from the rain? Well, they finally paid off - that is, if you came out of the rain and into the Frank Erwin Center Sept. 18 for an energetic concert by Supertramp. After an almost two- year hibernation from the concert cir- cuit following their " Breakfast in America " tour, Supertramp came alive before a slightly soggy but en- thusiastic audience. Supertramp gave an innovative show which included an oversized video screen, a tuxedo chorus and a circus of clowns. The crowd, too, displayed imagination as a sea of um- brellas flooded the floor when the band sang " It ' s Raining Again. " Fans also enjoyed the addition of two musicians to the band. Unfor- tunately, with additions came a sub- traction as founding member Roger Hodgson announced plans to leave at the close of the concert tour. The creative mix of video and in- strumentals on old favorites such as " The Logical Song " and new singles such as " Don ' t Leave Me Now " elec- trified the audience. The band animated the audience once more with a two-song, video- accompanied encore. The group left the audience with the hope of their return, saying, " When we ' re away, we always miss our breakfasts in America. " Marikay Norris A sovereign, purple light shone upon the Erwin Center ' s stage, Sept. 21. A near-capacity crowd knew one person was capable of glistening in that light, and he was Robert Plant. Plant seized the crowd ' s anticipa- tion by sliding into his opening number, " In The Mood. " Plant ' s voice, of undisputable Led Zeppelin fame, immediately brought the cheering audience to their feet. As the music flowed from melodic to such volcanic numbers as " Worse Than Detroit, " one ' s ear began to ap- preciate the rhythmic artistry of Plant ' s fellow band members. The crowd favorite, next to Plant, was none other than Phil Collins, the energetic leader of Genesis and an ac- complished solo performer. Collins ' presence on percussion was felt in the pounding, diversified tempo of Plant ' s tunes. The intensity flourished as Plant " ahh " ed and " oh " ed sensuously powerful renditions of " Through with the Two Step " and " Slow Dancer. " His musical boundaries stretched limitlessly from a mind- expanding synthesizer solo to the reg- gae rift of " Livin " Up Yourself. " " Big Log " magically highlighted the encore performances and lyrically typified Plant ' s supreme desire to en- dure, " For there is no turning back, on the run. " In the concert ' s aftermath, the crowd ' s anticipation was subdued by a strong sense of satisfaction. For in an evening, Robert Plant bridged the gap between past and present, establishing a path where he could experiment and innovate on his own. Lewis Henderson I Music Tours Keep Crowds Rocking At Erwin Center The crowd cheered as a projection of the " eliminator, " a fiery orange Ford coupe, zoomed at the au- dience from a screen on t he backstage wall. This explosive illusion captured the Erwin Center audience on Oct. 5, and proved an effective opening for the ZZ Top " Eliminator " tour. The " little ol ' band from Texas " was back in its home state, and judg- ing from the cheers as the band entered the stage, Austin was glad to have them back. Billy Gibbons, Dus- ty Hill and Frank Beard began a trilogy of songs from their 1983 album, " Eliminator. " The set began with " Got Me Under Pressure, " a pulsating account of boy chases girl. The follow-up, " Gimme All Your Loving " illustrated what occurred after the catch. The boy becomes a " Sharp Dressed Man " in the last number of the song threesome. This initial surge of songs showed the band moving away from its blues-rock roots and into ' 80s style synthesized struts coupled with a down-home rowdy drum beat. The similarities in ZZ Top ' s old and new material were the screeching guitars, heavy bass lines and raspy " down and dirty " vocals from Gibbons and Hill. Closing the concert with older blues-inspired numbers, the encore included such Texas rock classics as " Tush " and " Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers. " The concert closed to thunderous applause, with fans content to know that while the " Eliminator " transported the band to fans all over the country, it brought ZZ Top home to Texas for a fill-up. Peggy Verkin The audience was treated to a double feature Oct. 19 at the Frank Erwin Center, as the stage refused to rise for a vibrant and energetic " Mr. Roboto. " The crowd grew restless as the lights came back on and the video was rewound. The second take of " Kilroy Was Here " finally began the show. Styx opened the show with the stage set as Mr. Righteous ' Rock-n- Roll Museum, with Dennis De Young and Tommy Shaw in complete costume from the video. Singing " Mr. Roboto, " DeYoung and Shaw told the story of Kilroy ' s capture, im- prisonment and final escape from a world without rock-n-roll under the control of Mr. Righteous. " Rockin ' To Paradise, " from the " Paradise Theater " album, turned an anxious and waiting mob into a responsive audience, applauding the group ' s popular songs, " Lady, " " Too Much Time On My Hands " and " Don ' t Let It End. " Vocalist and guitarist Tommy Shaw exemplified spectacular voice control and guitar skills in " Fooling Yourself and " Crystal Ball.

The concert ended with De Young (Kilroy) and Shaw continuing the story of Mr. Roboto and Mr. Righteous. Without an encore, Styx left the stage performing " Mr. Roboto " once again. Anne Wilson When " Back in Black " hit the record stores in 1980, heavy metal fans wondered if the death of lead singer Bon Scott had changed AC DC ' s sound. Scott ' s alcohol poisoning death in February of 1979 sent the surviving members of the band in search of a singer who could match his sinister growl. They chose stout, curly-haired Brian Johnson to carry on the sound that took AC DC from Sydney, Australia, to international fame in 1976 with the release of the album " High Voltage " in the United States. " Back in Black " answered the doubts that Scott fans may have had about Johnson ' s right to the AC DC legacy. Two songs from the album, " Back in Black " and " You Shook Me All Night Long " became the band ' s first commercial hits. Johnson and maniacal fellow showman and lead guitarist Angus Young updated Austin on the state of heavy metal as AC DC shook the Frank Erwin Center Oct. 29. Young heralded the 90-minute frenzy with a mystical entrance atop a bi-level stage. With his skinny legs flailing like a rag doll ' s from his knee-length red shorts, Young joined brother Malcom, rhythm guitarist, and the rest of the band to crank out " Shoot to Thrill. " From the initial guitar barrage, Johnson took the forefront, bathed in green, red and purple lights for " Sin City. " His vocal predominance rang on through " Rising Power. " With the questions of the past aside, AC DC, with the release of " Flick of the Switch " in 1983 and a powerful concert to support it, show- ed Austin just how good a group of bad boys could be. Michael A. Sutter Running the gambit of rock styles through the years 1950 poo- dle ski rts, black and white oxfords and ponytails, 1980 striped pants, checkered tennis shoes and green punk haircuts fans flocked to the Frank Erwin Center, Dec. 10 to, as the group ' s newest album said, " Rant ' n ' Rave " with the Stray Cats. If the rockin ' threesome showed they were " Built For Speed " in 1982, they were even faster in 1983, when they hit the stage with a " purr-feet " performance. Fans howled for lead singer Brian Setzer, bass player Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom as they combined a variety of sounds similar to the 1950s " rock-a-billy " to per- form a classic concert. Listening to hits like " Stray Cat Strut, " " Too Hip, Gotta Go, " and " I Won ' t Stand In Your Way, " one did not have to be " Sexy and Seventeen " to enjoy one of the wildest and hot- test concerts of the year. If the Stray Cats set out to strut their stuff and " Rock This Town " when they stopped in Austin, they did just that. Sheryl Conner Easy Listening Stars Dazzle Fans The fans who gathered at the Frank Erwin Center could not have asked for a more " Close Enough to Perfect " performance than the one given by Alabama on Oct. 2. The fans were feeling " Love in the First Degree " as the lights went down and the four-member band from Fort Payne, Alabama, appeared onstage. Lead guitarist Jeff Cook initiated the country boy tempo as he fiddled his way into " Tennessee River, " a tune that roused the crowd to a clap- ping roar. The claps were replaced by screams when lead singer Randy Owen coaxed the ladies to, " Fly away with me tonight, " in the hit single, " Take Me Down. " He continued to seduce the audience, singing to his " Lady Down on Love " before jump- ing into the hit " Old Flame, " which lit up the FEC with sparkling flames from audience lighters. After introducing the band ' s new song, " I ' m Not That Way Anymore, " Owen seemed to enhance the feeling that the " girls fall in love with the boys in the band, " from the group ' s 1980 hit " My Home ' s in Alabama. " When the lights went down and Alabama took a bow, the crowd went wild and clapped for more. Screams echoed in the FEC when the band returned. Owen asked the crowd, " Are you feeling good tonight? " before they broke into a string of pro- gressive country and rock-n-roll songs. As the night ' s performance came to a close, and the good ol ' country boys left the stage, the atmosphere lingered with a harmonious mood - a mood that any country music lover would agree, " Feels So Right. " Sheryl Conner A baby grand piano sat in the center of a silver-framed stage. Bathed in a blue-white light, the piano rose up and tilted toward the audience and played the opening notes of " Truly " by itself. Amidst screams of delight from a predominantly female audience, Lionel Richie emerged from the shadows to entrance his fans Oct. 21 at the Frank Erwin Center. Opening for Richie was the LIONEL RICHIE RANDY OWEN ALABAMA energetic trio, the Pointer Sisters. Bouncing on the stage in colorful, ruf- fled costumes, they danced their way through popular hits such as " Fire " and " Slow Hand. " Richie showcased his balladeer style with such hits as " Still " and " Sail On. " As he reminisced about the organization of the Commodores, Richie performed a moving rendition of " Wandering Stranger. " Explaining his break with the group, Richie show- ed no animosity, praising the Com- modores as " the greatest band ever. " Richie even managed to perform his duet " Endless Love " with a life-sized video screen projection of Diana Ross. The screen moved across the stage as Ross ' image walked, giving the three- dimensional effect of a live performance. The crowd ' s thunderous applause brought Richie back to encore with " All Night Long. " One could not help dancing in his seat throughout the en- tire 10-minute encore. Lynn Weaver Where is Margaritaville? On Nov. 5, it was in Austin at the Frank Erwin Center. A large au- dience, slightly older than the regular college crowd, gathered to hear the mellow tunes and anecdotes of Jimmy Buffett. Carefree and easygoing Buffett us- ed a theater stage format to give a more personal effect to his concert. The atmosphere for the first half of the show was like the inside of an old bar. As Buffett sat on his stool, guitar in hand, a bartender on stage mixed and served drinks to the group gathered to listen. Buffett began with " Somewhere Over China " and continued with " Changes In Latitude, Changes In Attitude, " and " I Wish I Had A Pen- cil Thin Mustache. " Debuting his latest album, " One Particular Harbour, " Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band came out for the second half of the con cert, perform- ch hits as " Still ' Weed about tin f the Commodores, amoving rendition Danger.

" Not to be excluded from the per- formance was " Cheeseburger In Paradise. " Buffett once claimed he could write a song about anything, and was dared by Kenny Stabler in Stabler ' s restaurant, " Paradise, " to write a song about cheeseburgers. Buffett concluded the concert with " Margaritaville, " perhaps the most popular of all his songs. " Anne Wilson Asold-out crowd filled the Frank Erwin Center. Thousands of female voices screamed, " We love you " towards the stage. Teenybop- pers at a rock and roll idol ' s concert? No. It was the Dec. 3 performance of Neil Diamond. Though most of the crowd was in the 30-plus age bracket, one could hardly tell by their shouts of delight. Diamond opened the show with a dramatic rendition of " America, " - complete with exploding flashpots and a giant US. flag. Making sure that he did not ignore his fans located in the " cheap seats, " Diamond per- formed many of his songs to those who sat behind the stage. After he complained that it was not fair that the audience could see him but he could not see them, Diamond had the house lights brought up. The lights were left on throughout a rowdy cover version of " Dancin ' in the Streets, " much to the delight of his fans. Their shouts of approval convinced Diamond he should do the song one more time, and he willingly obliged. After that energetic outburst, Dia- mond settled down by sitting on the edge of the stage to sing some of his older hits, including " Sweet Caroline " and " Forever in Blue Jeans. " A medley of tunes from his debut movie " The Jazz Singer " followed, with Diamond crooning the romantic love songs " Hello Again " and " Love On the Rocks. " After being called back for two en- cores, Diamond closed his show as he began it with an effective display of laser lights and a reprise of " America. " It was clear that Dia- mond ' s versatile pleased his devotees. This older than average concert crowd, through their excited screams and applause, proved that exuberant and flashy concerts were not reserved for teens alone. Lynn Weaver While most students were keeping the hot pots hot and the pizza man running, the last Sun- day before finals, there were still those who took their study breaks with Dan Fogelberg on Dec. 11. The concert Fogelberg chose to br- ing to the Erwin Center was a bit out of the ordinary. Rather than a stage full of synthesizers, instruments and vocals, Fogelberg used a stool, a microphone, a guitar and a piano. Fogelberg explained he chose this style to let the audience " hear the songs as they were written before they got to the studio. " Fogelberg romanced the audience with ballads such as " Run for the Roses " and " Leader of the Band. " Fogelberg also rocked the crowd with hits off his " Twin Sons of Different Mothers " and " Phoenix " albums, proving, as he put it, " I can write more than just sad songs. " Though the acoustic performance was more low-key than his previous fully staged tours, Fogelberg definite- ly set the mood for settling down to the upcoming finals week blues. Marikay Norris 38 SPECIAL Esta blished Acts Rock in Spring In the beginning, there was darkness. Energy intensified with the passing of each second, finally achieving a tremulous height. Then there was a spotlight, and from this light, on Jan. 24, in the Erwin Center, came the harmonious music of Genesis. Tony Bank ' s keyboards sliced through the mind like a flashlight in a fog as he led the audience through songs like " Abacab, " " Mama " and " Home by the Sea. " These songs per- sonified the band ' s newfound will to produce music comparable to their lengthy ballads of earlier years. The lighter pop side of Genesis emerged as lead singer Phil Collins donned a leopard skin jacket, a thin, neon tie and Spanish accent for the upbeat " Illegal Alien. " The band reacned back to older material, assembling an inspirational medley of " Cinema Show, " " Afterglow " and " Los Endos. " This final selection was a revelation, with Mike Rutherford ' s acoustic guitar commendably replacing departed member Steve Hackett ' s. The encore, " Turn It On, " contain- ed inserted bits and pieces of Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Who music. The concert ended, leaving a numb- ing effect on the audience. Lewis Henderson Proving that true performers really exist, .38 Special presented a show which included the unique sound of southern rock enhanced with an excellent use of lights and non-stop action at the Frank Erwin Center on March 31. Originally from Jacksonville, Fla., .38 Special entertained the audience by using laser lights which astounded the fans. Green and blue beams bounced off the walls and ceiling in rhythm with the music. Vocalist and guitarist Don Barnes earned the audience ' s attention when he sang " Hold on Loosely " and " So Caught Up in You. " Introduced as the " hardest work- ing man in rock V roll " by Barnes, vocalist Donnie Van Zandt entertain- ed the fans with onstage antics. The crowd went wild when Van Zandt was suddenly lifted into the air by an invisible rope to swing out above the fans. Golden Earring opened the show with fast-paced rock before going in- to their old all-time hit " Radar Love. " The band finished its in- troduction to .38 Special with " Twilight Zone. " Sheryl Conner I :t was the rock and roll enthusiasts who swam to the Erwin Center March 4 amid the downpours that greeted Heart. Opening with their hit " Cities Burning, " Heart helped revitalize any rain-dampened spirits. The Wilson sisters, Ann and Nan- cy, cranked out familiar tunes such as " Crazy on You " and " Magic Man " while making new fans with their latest tunes such as " Jealousy " and Highlighting these was Nancy " allies. " Wilson ' s " Love Mistake. " After six years of touring, Heart was still in top rock form. Ann looked a bit funkier than last year, in her blue and black striped jumpsuit and a fluorescent pink stripe in her jet black hair. She coaxed the crowd to dance in their seats as she sang " Even It Up. " Nancy was dynamic on guitar, vocals and keyboard. In addi- tion, she played a harmonica lead-in to " Johnny Moon " from their new album, " Passion Works. " Her guitar performance in " Mistral Wind " was a fantastic display of her talent. White lights on stage reflected from mirrors, illuminating a scream- ing crowd which brought Heart back for an encore performance of " Allies " and " Barracuda " featuring Nancy on keyboard and Ann on flute. Once more Heart came through Austin with a provocative perfor- mance. Thrilling the crowd with old favorites while enthralling it with their new hits, Heart proved that they were still among the finest rock bands around. Marikay Norris The closest body of water was the Colorado, but it didn ' t matter April 14 as Hawaiian-clad moms and dads caught a wave to the Frank Er- win Center for the biggest beach par- ty to hit Austin in over five years - an appearance by The Beach Boys. Wearing clothing resembling bits and pieces of Redondo Beach, 30 and 40-year-old " teenagers " were the reason the frisbee and beach ball throwing before the concert and the picnic baskets all seemed so natural - all that was missing was the sand and the volleyball net. Appearing a little older and a little grayer, the Beach Boys opened with a powerful version of " Rock and Roll Music " on a plain platform concert stage. Had the audience been unaware of the orange-cushioned seats they were sitting on, they might have mistaken the evening for a night of beach blanket heaven. Only three of the original Beach Boys, lead singer Mike Love, Carl Wilson on synthesizers and Al Jar- dine on guitar still remained with the group, whose popularity rose with their " doo-wop " sound in the 1950s. During the first set, songs such as " Barbara Ann " made the FEC securi- ty personnel a tad upset when the au- dience began to rise from their seats, section by section, to dance. Love said, " The security people are a little over-zealous tonight it isn ' t a Frank Sinatra concert. If you want to dance, then dance. " The harmonizing tones of " Good Vibrations " kept the fans on their feet while the band sang in memory of longtime friend and founding member Dennis Wilson, who drown- ed in December, 1983. Love bopped on his surfboard for the final set of " Surfin ' Safari, " " Surf City " and " Surfin ' U.S.A. " The audience waited only a few minutes before the Boys caught a wave back on stage for an encore. " California Girls " and " I Get Around, " left the crowd guessing about what coast they were on and what year it was, because the Beach Boys still appeared to be the same " young, " fun-loving boys from California. Delia de Lafuente NANCY AND A NNWII. SON HEART Innovative Musicians Bring High-Tech Shows to Austin No other group in the age of video generated as much in- terest as England ' s Duran Duran. Not only did their music merit recognition, but their videos as well. They incorporated mystery, in- tensity and raw sensuality into minutes of audio-visual film. On Feb. 10, Duran Duran made its Texas debut. Their performance was magnetic as they captured the au- dience. It was a seduction, easy and electric, aided mostly by the giant video screen hanging above the stage. The screen added clarity to the concert, even for those in the " nosebleed " sections. The crowd responded excitedly to the close-ups of lead singer Simon LeBon. The band ' s five members centered themselves upon the risers, looking quite at home amid the concert fog, Grecian pillars and exotic hues of fuchsia, electric blue and tangerine. They started the evening off with the instrumental " Tiger Tiger " from their latest album " Seven and the Ragged Tiger. " The group ' s rendi- tions were studio perfect and accom- panied by synchronized lighting. The concert material consisted of songs from both of their U.S. albums. " Please, Please Tell Me Now " brought the audience to its feet in one unbelievable motion, and the crowd remained unseated through " Hungry Like the Wolf, " " Union of the Snake " and " Planet Earth. " The air was thick and hot, and the crowd hungered for more as they brought the band back for two en- cores, " Rio " and " Girls on Film. " The night came to a close, and the 11,000 spectators dispersed into the darkness, taking with them memories of a truly visual evening. Lisa Maddry The reaction of many audience members was " What ' s Up, Doc? " when the warm-up band at the Yes concert turned out to be a 1930 Bugs Bunny cartoon. After Berlin, the back-up group, cancelled, it was ' Looney Tunes ' to the rescue. Back on their first U.S. tour since 1980, Yes came to the Frank Erwin Center on March 17 with a show full of unforgettable sight and sound ef- fects. The band treated the audience to choice cuts from their new album " 90125 " as well as old favorites such as " And You and I. " The lighting effects were as outstanding as the magnificent acoustical effects, with their creative use of elaborate lighting boards, laser beams and video imagery. Reflective of the band ' s traditional music style, aggressive guitar playing was performed by Treavor Rabin and Chris Squire. The group also seemed to have developed a greater dependence on the keyboard sounds produced by original band member Tony Kaye. Although the new Yes music had a more structured sound, it still rang with the technical complexity for which the group became famous. When the band came back on stage to play " Roundabout, " transforma- tion found audience members clap- ping incessantly singing the lyrics of the most beloved song ever recorded by the group. Ann Wilkinson When the opening strains of " West Side Story " began playing, many of the people in the Apr. 7 audience may have checked their ticket stubs to make sure they weren ' t at the Frank Erwin Center on the wrong night. But moments later, when they heard a familiar voice ask, " Are you ready yet? " the crowd responded with a resounding " Yes! " and Adam Ant began his show. While the overture of " West Side Story " played, the band members bounded onto the stage, obviously enjoying the attention. Then the spotlight shone on the top level of the scaffolding where Adam Ant lounged before singing. The pace of the show never slowed as Ant seductively teased his female fans with his playful antics. Using a silver scaffold to climb onto and slide down, Ant raced around the stage. ' e opening strains i Side Stay " began I of the people in the e may have checked i YES s later, when they i voice ask, " Are you io. entire of " fc Side j the band the stage, the when Dancing with his band members in a slickly choreographed routine, Ant moved through his recent hits, " Desperate, But Not Serious " and " Friend or Foe. " He also included " Ant Music " from his earlier days with the more punk-styled Adam and the Ants. But the main mood of the evening was expressed through his latest album, " Strip. " Reminding the au- dience " what lips are used for " he slinked into a risque version of " Navel to Neck. " But the audience wanted more. After an encore of " Goody Two- Shoes, " Ant gave the crowd what they had been screaming for. Strut- ting around to a sleazy beat, he pro- ceeded to strip to a bathing suit and plunge into a large, clear tank of water on the stage. Emerging, he combed his hair, did a few bumps and grinds and left his fans screaming for more. Lynn Weaver The " Beast " of Judas Priest at- tacked Austin with its gut- wrenching heavy metal rock on April 29 at the Frank Erwin Center. Priest appeared from within a laser-eyed, firebreathing Metallion, the group ' s trademark, which rose 30 feet over the stage floor. The leather-and-chain clad men from Birmingham, England, focused on their newest and most successful album, " Defenders Of The Faith, " with songs such as " Love Bites, " " Freewheel Burning " and " Some Heads Are Gonna Roll " with fiery perfection. Lead guitarist Glenn Tipton and K. K. Downing thrilled the audience with their amazing speed and preci- sion guitar playing while trading solos during old favorites " Sinner " and " Green Manalishi. " Lead vocalist Rob Halford the " Beast " of the Priest iginited the crowd with his high-energy perfor- JUDAS PRIEST mance as one of heavy metals most talented vocalist, ranging from pierc- ing highs in " Victim of Changes " to raw power in " Grinder. " The performance was at peak level the entire time. The " metal maniacs " provided pure, hard-driving heavy metal throughout the entire show and three encores. The first encore was the familiar " Living After Midnight, " followed by the highlight of the show, " Hell Bent for Leather. " The audience went wild as Halford sang from underneath the giant Metallion riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle, another of the group ' s trademarks. During the third encore, Priest screamed through its " Another Thing Comin ' , " finishing in a fury of sparks, fire and explosions. Judas Priest ' s performance easily satisfied Austin ' s heavy metal hunger. Their promise to return to the FEC next year will be eagerly awaited. Craig Clayton CLASSICAL .. i- - Cm fc- p T Garcia Navarro conducts the Symphony. The violin section of the world -renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra played at the PAC Sept. 21. Performances Interpret Masters Guided by the artistic vision of guest conductor Garcia Navarro, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra returned to Austin for the first time in more than a decade. The Symphony ' s Sept. 21 Perform- ing Arts Center appearance proved to be a spectacular event, fully manifesting the talent that won them more Grammy Awards than any other orchestra. As guest conductor, Navarro was no stranger to the podium. He served as artistic adviser to the Manchester Festival in England and won first place in the International Competi- tion for Conductors in France. Opening the evening with Dvorak ' s Symphony No. 8 in G major, the or- chestra captured the audience with a three-part structure, opening with a trumpet solo, then resounding from the woodwinds and reincorporating the trumpet. Following a brief intermission, Navarro conducted the orchestra in a tragic, moody piece, Roy Harris ' Symphony No. 3. The musicians ' instruments created a delicate, chorale sound. The romantic flavor was dramatically climaxed by a brilliant, bold drum finale and a standing ovation for the maestro. Tracy Brown Billing himself as the music direc- tor who never directed, Richard Kapp brought the renowned Philharmonia Virtuosi to the Performing Arts Concert Hall Oct. 5. The ensemble, an association of the leading members of the New York Philharmonic, assembled to playing a varied repertoire, showcased a tremendous musical proficiency over the broad spectrum of styles they played. A Leo Janacek concertino began the program. The piece emphasized a series of solos. Moving to a classical piece, the company showed its broad range and precise playing in Beethoven ' s Septet Philharmonia Virtuosi ' s Richard Kapp. 90 Classical in K fiat major. A septet by Camille Saint Sat ' iis followed. Ragtime was the last style the Philharmonia Virtuosi attempted, playing the " Maple Leaf Rag " and " Tin- Entertainer " by Scott Joplin. The arrangement seemed too legitimate to pull off Joplin ' s nightlife music and lacked its intend- ed robustness. 1 - pite their extremely proficient playing ability, the Philharmonia Virtuosi rarely brought the audience above a polite appreciation of the music. More noticeably, they never played the 16th Century music by which they gained their notoriety. Thomas Trahan The auditorium was filled with thousands of well-mannered in- dividuals, frantically flipping through playbills, biting nails and loosening collars, all to alleviate some tense anxiety. This seemed the setting of a group therapy session, but such was not the case. At the Performing Arts Center on Oct. 18, this audience experienced the music of P.D.Q. Bach, the non- existent brother of Johann Sebastian Bach and the world ' s clumsiest composer. Peter Schickele, creator and ex- ploiter of P.D.Q., lowered himself from the first balcony and clumsily crawled onto the stage. This wild eyed, scruffy faced, mess-of-a-man resembled a criminal. By the show ' s end, Schickele substantiated the fact, for he did to sheet music what Al Capone did to the streets of Chicago. Schickele, impatient for the arrival of his keyboardist, David Oei, who had absent-mindedly forsaken the show for a brisk jog, proceeded to play " Abassoonata " in F Major. The result was an unmethodical display of how to play two instruments at the same time, in as many awkward posi- tions as possible. Oei arrived, just in time to con- tinue the musical massacre. John Ferrante, whose voice seemed the result of a horrible accident, also con- tributed to assure P.D.Q. ' s deserving historical stigma. Schickele utilized everything from a fog horn to a rubber hose to assassinate classical music in an ir- resistible style. He conquered the mountain few have dared to climb or even approach -- the accomplished imitation of bad art. Lewis Henderson Marilyn Home sings with style and precision. Outside, the night was cold and rainy. But for the people who packed the Performing Arts Center Dec. 1, the voice of the " greatest singer in the world, " Marilyn Home, was a soothing and warm refuge. Home, who received the Rossini Foundation ' s Golden Plaque award, proclaiming her the best singer in the world, captivated the audience with the precise technicality and richness of her voice. She sang selections from Handel and " Connais-tu le pays " from " Mignon, " by Ambroise Thomas, which left the audience so spellbound they hesitated to applaud. The evening ' s focal point came with the Gioacchino Rossini pieces, as Home took time to give background on the songs. In " Canzonetta Spagnuloa, " Home -told of the adventure of finding the words to Rossini ' s " Spanish Song, " the only Spanish piece he wrote. Previous research turned up only the French words. Home said after hundreds of calls to European museums and schools, the words were finally discovered. Home ended her performance with Rossini ' s " L ' addio di Rossini. " She explained Rossini would end his per- formances with this song, replacing the name of the river in the song ' s final line with a river in that city. Kathy Thornton Memben of P.D.Q. Bach hring their musical debauchery to PAC audiences Oct. 18. Classical 91 Artists Create Well-Crafted Music In the program, the listing read The Texas Chamber Or- chestra with James Galway, but in the minds of the large and en- thusiastic audience at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall, Feb. 19, the emphasis was the other way around. Serving as both conductor and soloist, Galway made the tone of both the show and the audience his own in a bright, primarily Mozart program. The energetic Galway led the or- chestra through Mozart ' s " Eine Kleine Nachtmusik " at such a frenetic pace that the ensemble seemed barely able to keep up. After intermission, the perfor- mance became more lively. Soloing in Mozart ' s Flute Concerto No. 2 and conducting Mozart ' s Symphony No. 29, Galway displayed a fervor that brightened the performance. Born in Belfast, Galway still delighted the audience with his Irish airs and accent. The Texas Chamber Orchestra played a strong and com- petent performance that was marred only by some tuning irregularities. But, after all, whether accompany- ing or following James Galway, it was the light and cheerful passages that sang out and were remembered. Thomas E. Trahan Galway ' s humor brightens his Feb. 19 show. Operatic maestro Sergiu Comissiona tries his hand at conducting symphonies 92 Classical 3 The Houston Symphony Orchestra played March 6 at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall. When the serious composer Sullivan worked with the comic lyricist Gilbert, the outcome was the most successful series of operettas ever. When the Houston Symphony Orchestra played at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall March 6, another unlikely success resulted from an unusual list of ingredients. During the evening, the orchestra brought together an operatic conduc- tor, a composer ' s first symphony at- tempt and another ' s only try at a trumpet concerto to make a quite solid, and at times, rousing perfor- mance. Led by Sergiu Comissiona, the orchestra began with Barber ' s " Medea ' s Meditation and Dance of Vengeance. " Then trumpeter John DeWitt joined the orchestra to play Hum- mel ' s Trumpet Concerto in E-flat Major a piece written before the modern trumpet was invented. Despite Comissiona ' s operatic arm- waving in DeWitt ' s face, unusual in concert productions, DeWitt was able to play a bright and dexterous perfor- mance that aroused the audience to its greatest enthusiasm of the evening. After intermission, Comissiona again led the orchestra in a piece where raw emotion carried the au- dience - Tchaikovsky ' s Symphony No. 1 in g minor " Winter Dreams. " Comissiona ' s dramatic style seemed to fit well in this im- mature piece that Tchaikovsky himself called " a sweet sin of my youth. " The orchestra derived more of its success from the musical depth and harmonica! ability of the ensemble than from the music or the style itself. Comissiona ' s limited range in symphonic work seemed to confine the orchestra ' s ability to parade its full potential. The audience ' s warm reception, however, showed apprecia- tion for a strong musical performance and an exhilarating soloist. Thomas E.Trahan With the combined forces of 70 instrumental musicians, a nearly 90- voice choir, 11 dancers, two narrators and a mezzo-soprano soloist having only a handful of com- bined rehearsals in order to coor- dinate their various activities, even the most enthusiastic concert-goers probably had their doubts as to how well the premiere performance of Earl Stewart ' s oratorio Al- Inkishafi would fare. There were just too many things that could have gone wrong. As it turned out, a few things did go wrong, but they were essentially inconsequential. The performance April 21 at the Performing Arts Center proved " Al-Inkishafi " to be a gorgeous work with leanings toward the lyrical. Despite the sizable number of performers, " Al-Inkishafi " had a surprisingly light touch. The use of multiple contrasting rhythms and haunting vocalizations resulted in a work of unpredictable diversity. And yet it was remarkably cohesive. No less praise is in order for con- ductor Sung Kwak and the members of the Austin Symphony Orchestra, who continue to impress audiences with both improving technique and increasing musical sensitivity. Not only were the technical demands ad- mirably met, but the orchestra demonstrated a solid awareness of the music ' s character and potential. The changing of the background colors behind the chorus was a nice effect. Narrator Moses Gunn was ap- propriate in his reading of the poem, imparting the qualities of the wise sage to the poet ' s words. John Inniss ' Kiswahili narration could have been longer. Last, but certainly not least was the radiant performance by mezzo-soprano and UT-ex Barbara Conrad. Nowhere was her talent so exquisitely displayed than in the beautiful " Meditation III. " The fate of Earl Stewart ' s " Al- Inkishafi " was uncertain. There were still the two sections, three interludes and overture that remained to be per- formed in the complete work, as well as the modifications that Stewart himself wished to make. If there is any justice in the musical world (and, unfortunately, there all too often isn ' t) the premiere of " Al-Inkishafi " was only the first of many perfor- mances to come.

The exhibition at the LBJ Library and Museum commemorates The University of Texas Centennial. Gallery Offers UT Treasures One of The University ' s main ex- hibitions during the Centennial included the stunning Treasures of the University ' s First Hundred Years. The exhibit, occupying 3,500 square feet of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library, displayed over 100 years of traditions, people and places. Among the memorabilia were items contributed by Lyndon Baines Johnson. Lady Bird Johnson, a member of the University of Texas Centennial Commission, toured the exhibit, call- ing it " a collection of romantic, wonderful and interesting things. " Works of art, maps, figures, books, photographs, letters and coins were among the 400 items shown. Five collections loaned materials to the Centennial exhibit: the Eugene C. Barker Texas History Center, the Ar- cher M. Huntington Art Gallery, the Nellie Lee Benson Latin America Collection, the Humanities Research Center and the Texas Museum. Many spectators marveled over the variety of items in the showcase. UT President Peter T. Flawn said, " It is our hope that visitors to the exhibit will become more intrigued by the sampler and will elect to visit and en- joy the five collections from which they come.

Art Exhibit Highlights A Renaissance City Art revealing the religious zeal of the Protestant reformation and the pre-Reformation movement was presented in the ex- hibit, Nuremberg: A Renaissance City, 1500-1618, which ran Sept. 2-Oct. 16 at the Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery in the Harry Ransom Center. Black and white prints comprised approximately two-thirds of the exhibition. Gold and silver portrait medals, paintings, bronzes and small wooden statues were also on display. The exhibit contained art taken from the period of Nuremberg ' s artistic flourish until shortly before the beginning of Europe ' s Thirty Years War. The style exemplified art from the late Gothic The detailed engraving " St. Jerome in His Study " is an Albrecht Durer work from 1514. Hans Schaufelein ' s " Portrait of a Man. " period to the early Baroque period in the time of the Renaissance and Mannerism eras. Pictorial designs il- lustrated Nuremberg revolting against the Roman Catholic church and becoming the first free imperial city to convert to Lutheranism. Great Northern Renaissance sculptors and goldsmiths such as Wenzel, Hans Schwarz, Pieter Flotner, Georg Pencz and Nuremberg ' s famous native, Albrecht Durer, were represented. The Department of Fine Arts sponsored a symposium studying 16th Century art and provided gallery talks and musical events in conjunction with the exhibit. Sujata K.

For the exhibition, 45 artists were chosen by gallery director Eric Mc- Cready. McCready praised the " hot " newcomers in a show he described as a " colorful, gusty exhibition. " The styles and textures of the pain- tings were varied and unique. Dif- ferent types of fabric were blended into a quilt-like patchwork in " Wonderland " by Miriam Schapiro. Other works seemed photographic, like April Gornik ' s " Divided Sky. " With the talent and originality displayed in this exhibit, one saw the collection continue to grow and delight art lovers.

A t the same time plans for the Performing Arts Center were ' agreed on in 1977, a decision was made to include an organ loft in the 700-seat Bates Recital Hall. In 1981, the search for an organ builder began. Forty builders were interviewed before Visser-Rowland Associates of Houston was decided upon in 1982. Their plans for a versatile tracker organ worth $487,000 won them the contract. Design and construction of the organ began in their Houston shop in 1982. The organ took its name from the " trackers, " long thin strips of wood connecting keys and valves which allowed com- pressed air to enter the organ pipes. The 5,258 pipes, 13 bells, 67 stops and about 100 ranks helped to make the largest tracker organ ever built in the United States sing. The 48,000 pounds of organ parts were shaped out of wood, lead, tin, copper and other metals into the pipes, which could replicate sounds of various instruments - brass, woodwinds and strings. Surrounding these pipes was a 38-foot-tall case made of Ap- palachian red oak. Other hard- woods used included walnut for the console, maple and | ebony for the pedals, and dark ebony and light Texas holly for the white-on-black keyboards. " I ' ve played 27 recitals in Europe - big cathedrals like Notre Dame - - and countless ones here and there ' s none finer anywhere, " said Frank Speller, UT associate professor I of organ. Julie Del Barto Kates Recital Hall is the construction site for the tracker organ. HIGH-TECH With the hopes of becoming a world-class university, The University of Texas at Austin joined with business and , government to welcome the Microelectronics and Com- puter Technology Corp. to Austin. Adm. Bobby R. Inman, president and chief executive of- ficer of MCC, and Gov. Mark White announced MCC ' s decision to establish operations in Austin at a May 18, 1983 news conference. White said MCC ' s decision to locate in Austin would prove to be a " turning point in the economic history of our state. " White announced that the research operations center would be located on a 20-acre tract of land at the Balcones Research Center. He also said that $20 million worth of of- fices and laboratories would be jointly funded by the UT System and the state ' s business community. MCC was created as a private sector, joint research ven ture to maintain the level of technology and international competitiveness of the United States in microelectronics.

An agreement by The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A M University to accelerate their development of advanced research programs was also a major attraction for MCC, White said. Fifty-seven U.S. cities were originally considered as sites for MCC, but the field was soon narrowed to four and final- ly, Inman said, " Austin was selected after an intensive, ex- haustive analysis. " Criteria for Austin ' s selection included its quality of life, with an emphasis on the quality of its three major industries electronics, state government and higher education all clean, non-polluting industries. " This is far more than just another industry to Texas, " said White.

The stone, the official gem of Texas, was purchased by The Univer- sity in 1968 for $3.25 per carat. Discovered in Brazil, the value of the Texas Topaz was estimated at $50,000 by Edward C. Jonas, curator of the collection and a professor of geological sciences at The University. Julie Del Barto Todd Curates Sports Collection Terry Todd really knows how to throw his weight around, 20,000 pounds to be exact. The former award-winning powerlifter returned to U T in the Fall, 1983, bringing with him approximately 20,000 pounds in books and magazines. A lecturer in the Department of Physical and Health Education and the curator of the Todd-Mclean Sports History Collection, Todd ' s materials formed the core of the collection. " My breakthrough in collecting, " Todd said, " came from Ottley Coulter, a retired circus strongman who had been assembling magazines and other publications for 60 years. " After the death of Coulter, his family sold the materials to Todd. The Sports History Collection in Gregory Gym would be made available to students, sportsmen and researchers. A desk in the reading room was reserved for Roy J. McLean, professor emeritus of physical and health education. The Roy J. McLean Centennial Fellowship in Sports History, was, in part, to fund the maintenance of the collection. Julie Del Barto Terry Todd sorts out the new sports collection. Runge Directs New Pulsatile Heart Pump Project Experiments on calves may lead to the adoption of a lifesaving technique for humans. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin were en- couraged with the results of tests evaluating the effectiveness of a new external heart pump. Directing the project was Dr. Tom lunge, medical director of non- wasive cardiology at Brackenridge [ospital in Austin and a faculty lember in UT ' s biomedical engineer- ing program. With successful lemonstrations of the pump on a 170- und calf, Dr. Runge believed that ' for us, this has been a point of en- couragement that the Texas Heart In- stitute has picked up on it. " The new Pulsatile heart pump was designed to improve on conventional pumps by reducing the damage done to blood as it travels through the ar- tificial device. This was accomplished by pushing the blood with a compres- sion action that drove the blood through the capillaries more efficient- ly. " These external valves are unique, " Dr. Runge said. " A researcher at the Texas Heart Institute described them as ' elegant, ' " he added. The major difference between con- ventional pumps and the new pump was the use of external valves in the UT device as opposed to the internal valves of the older devices. According to Dr. Runge, " These external valves are passive. They allow the tubing to be disposable and therefore, less ex- pensive, and they diminish clotting and hemolysis, the damage of blood cells. " With successful experimentation behind them, researchers believed that the new Pulsatile pump could be used in emergencies. Although further testing is planned, the pump was con- sidered a breakthrough in biomedical research.

Built in 1852 for John Milton Swisher, the classic Greek Revival home was designed by Abner Cook. When the Scotts acquired the house in 1925, they moved it from its original site on San Antonio Street, between 4th and 5th streets, to its current location at 2408 Sweetbrush Drive, overlooking Lake Austin. The center portion was moved brick by brick to its present site along with a surrounding fence that originally encircled the State Capitol. The present 1.42 acre site was mark- ed with a Texas Historical Marker. Following renovation, the house will be used as the official residence of the president of The University, and given a new name Scott House Sweetbrush.

HRC Acquires French Manuscripts Eighty-nine autographed music manuscripts by modern French com- posers Gabriel Faure, Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Albert Roussel and Paul Dukas made the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center ' s late 19th and early 20th century French compositions the largest in the world. " If one were to combine all the other modern French music collec- tions, public and private, throughout the world, they wouldn ' t begin to touch this one, " said Carlton Lake, executive curator of the HRC. Gathered over a period of four generations by a European family, the collection was acquired by the HRC in order to provide a world center for musicological research. " Manuscripts do often carry im- portant corrections that become a primary research source for the understanding of a given composer ' s elaboration of ideas or solution to technical problems. Questions of scholarly editing of scores can only be ascertained accurately with the availability of autographs, " said Gerhard Behague, chairman of the Department of Music. This extraordinary collection was be invaluable in study of 20th cen- tury music.

From there, he went on to marry Eden VanZant, The University of Texas at Austin ' s " most beautiful grad student, " now a prominent member of the real estate industry and a founding director of a local bank. Although very career oriented, Box and his wife have five children " want to remain current as a dean, I ' d have to also remain current as an architect. " some of whom have gone into profes- sional fields. Balancing between family and career, Box still took time out to pl ay his flute. " I take lessons every week and try to practice an hour every day, " he said. Since graduating from The Univer- sity in 1950, Box spent 20 years as a member of one of the five largest ar- chitectural firms in Dallas -- Part- ner, Pratt, Box, Henderson Part- ners, where he is still a consulting partner. In 1971, Box established the architectural program at The Univer- sity of Texas at Arlington, where he served as dean and professor for five years. With the resignation of Charles Burnette in January, 1976, Box left UT-Arlington to accept the position as dean of the School of Architecture at The University. " Continually refining our professional program, " Box said, was his job as dean. Box developed a post-professional graduate program. This program was set up for practicing architects who wished to come back to school to in- crease their skills and gain more sophistication in design and technology. " It ' s useful to me to con- tinue to practice because I ' m alert to the problems that students will be encountering. If I want to remain cur- rent as a dean, I ' d have to also remain current as an architect. " Traditionally, the great schools of architecture were located on the East and West coasts. " Now The Universi- ty of Texas is in a position to begin offering that kind of opportunity here, " Box said.

" The University was asked to become the Southwest component of the pro- gram " Harold Box, dean of architec- ture, said. " The plan is to have centers around the country for architectural study of the different regions, " he said. The Southwest Center was the first of its kind to devote an examina- tion of this region ' s architecture. The new center assembled a com- munity of scholars and practitioners in architecture, urban design, historic preservation and interior design. " The center, " Box said, " is intended to serve both scholars and practicing professionals and to attract scholars from a variety of related disciplines, including geography, art history and American studies, who will add dimension to the center ' s research and study. " A grant of $200,000 from the Meadows Foundation of Dallas established the Southwest Center. " This grant constitutes the largest single gift ever received by the school for Centennial teaching positions, " Box said. Incorporated into the center was the architectural library and the Architectural Drawings Col- lection housed in Battle Hall.

" I wanted to teach and get a Ph.D., " Cunningham said. " I often considered going into industry, but when I received an offer from the University of Texas in 1970 to in- struct, I decided to go with The University, and I ' ve been teaching and loving it ever since! " Receiving his undergraduate, graduate and doctorate degrees from Michigan State University, Cunn- ingham said he never got tired of at- tending school, although he did suffer from a minor case of senioritis his last semester in undergraduate school. " I had a lot of fun in college and I studied a lot and made good grades. I had a bad semester my last year, and I had to put myself into high gear to get back into shape. " As a dean and professor, Cunn- ingham was often asked by students to give advice on what courses and majors to pursue. " I don ' t approve of telling someone what to major in, " he said. " A person should major in what he is interested in, regardless of what major is hot at the time . . . For exam- ple, if accounting is hot, but a person does not enjoy it, he is going to be very unhappy. He should take at least the first two years in the business school to obtain a broad spectrum of the majors offered in the business school, and then he will be able to make a better choice. " Since his official appointment in June 1983 as dean, Cunningham has worked extremely hard to continue the improvement of the faculty, academic programs and the quality and quantity of students in the business school. " I think the business school is a very fine school, ranking consistently high in the nation, " he said. " However, there is no reason why this business school should not be ranked number one in the top business schools in the country. We need to make sure our programs are offering state of the art technology as well as state of the art problem solving. " Cunningham ' s favorite subjects to discuss about the business school, however, were the faculty and the students. " We are at the right place at the right time, with growing oppor- tunities and fantastic resources, such as faculty endowments and the great community support for our business school, " the dean said. " I ' m trying to get as many faculty and students in- volved in the business school and decision-making process as possible. I want people to feel they are a part of the business school.

The program was developed in recognition of society ' s increased technology and the need to integrate the computer in the areas of testing, product design, manufacturing and management. " A stimulant in the development of the Manufacturing Systems Engineering program, " explained Robert Sullivan, professor of man- Students learn to design and manage the computer-integrated manufacturing systems of the future. Charles Warlick, Computation Center director, works with an employee on processing data. agement, " was a request sent out by IBM to schools across the country to propose this kind of a program for the manufacturing sector; a program that would incorporate the designing and managing of factories of the future. " IBM offered $50 million in support of this program to 20 of 180 competing schools. A committee was formed of members representing the Graduate School of Business, the College of Engineering and the Department of Computer Science to draw up the proposal, which incorporated use of the computer to promote efficiency and quality in U.S. manufacturing. After several months of development, The University submitted an elaborate proposal and won a part of the IBM endowment. The grant con- sisted of hardware computer equip- ment worth over $2.5 million to be used to teach and research in areas of computer- integrated manufacturing. The management department within the Graduate School of Business would work directly with the College of Engineering in supporting the Manufacturing Systems Engineering Program. Within the department, the Produc- tion and Operations Management faculty was the chief link with the program. The Manufacturing Systems Engineering program was similar to another program linking the business school to the College of Engineering, the Engineering Route to Business. The fundamental goal of the Manufacturing Systems Engineering program would be to educate those engineers who would improve in- dustrial quality and productivity. This goal would be accomplished by two primary objectives; to provide a special educational opportunity for those persons who will manage and design the factories of the future, and to create an interdisciplinary pro- gram of development and research. Susan Edgley Business 107 ZL Communication Jeffrey Begins " Five Year Plan " The life channel of the informa- tion age is communication, " said Robert C. Jeffrey, dean of the College of Communication. To keep abreast of this rapidly changing field, the dean has kept the four departments of the college advertising, jour- nalism, radio-TV-film and speech in continuous change. Jeffrey established specific goals for his college in order to implement his " Five Year Plan. " The plan called for installation of new equipment, in- cluding computers that would enable the college to be more prepared for the future. Jeffrey also emphasized the pro- motion of research. With the help of " Parliamentary procedures are not rules; they are dynamic. They can be applied to different fields in society. " the Communication Research Center, he hoped to conduct an international research project which would ultimately help to centralize and coordinate ongoing research. In addition to research, Jeffrey said that he would like to see more courses offered in business and science writing to help journalism students learn more about the sub- jects of their reporting. Along with his duties as dean, Jef- frey also taught a course in parliamentary procedure. Jeffrey served as parliamentarian in the In- diana State Senate and spent much of his free time pursuing books on the subject. According to Jeffrey, " Parliamentary procedures are not rules; they are dynamic. They can be applied to different fields in society. " It was this interest in the numerous diverse aspects of communication and related fields that helped Dean Jeffrey keep the College of Com- munication on the threshold of the future. " In all, we are in rapid transformation, " he concluded. Lotte Chow Dean Robert C. Jeffrey believes the College of Communication is in " rapid transformation.

For The University, 1983 was the Centennial year; to the council, it was that first dawning of the light. The Advisory Council had its first meeting on Sept. 30, during which new officers and members of the ex- ecutive committee were elected. Robert C. Jeffrey, dean of the College of Communication and executive secretary on the council, said, " The aim of the Council is to promote and upgrade the well-being of the College of Communication. " The Advisory Council Plan and Objectives Task Force would be the principal force, Jeffery said. Its main function would be to determine long-range plans and objectives of the council. " Although guidelines ex- ist describing the role of the Advisory Council at U T, it is prudent for the College of Communication to work ahead for its own, " Jeffrey said. Other forces were geared to the benefits of the students and faculty, Jeffrey added. Student orientated task forces in- cluded the Quality of Graduates Task Force, the Student Professional Development Task Force, and the Recruitment of Outstanding Students Task Force. " We need to recruit more minority students, " Jef- frey said. " We could do that by set- ting college representatives to meet with high school counselors to in- terest them in the College of Communication. " " There are three other forces and they are of equal importance, " Jef- frey said. The Professional Develop- ment of Faculty Task Force was formed to keep faculty informed of the rapidly changing professional en- vironment. The force would organize research programs between faculty members and professionals and spon- sor seminars and conferences. The remaining forces were the Equipment and Facilities Task Force and the Public Relations Task Force. Looking forward to the University ' s bicentennial, Jeffrey said, " We are doing the best and hope for the best. " Lotte Chow The newly founded Advisory Council begins its first meeting. Communication 109 ZL Education Kennamer Stresses Public Affairs " The students who attend the Col- lege of Education have chosen to knowingly go into a field of service to adults and children, and they know they won ' t be gaining much financial reward, " Lorrin G. Kennamer, dean of the College of Education said. " Yet they still want to do it. They are choosing a tough way to make a liv- ing, but they realize there is no greater reward than that of helping our children. Although the trend is to ask which career will make the most money, education students are prepared to do what they like best, and their attitude of helping others is really marvelous. Kennamer, a professor of geography as well as an ad- ministrator, once had the opportuni- ty to work in a stockbroker ' s firm. However, he chose to pursue a career in education. " Monetarily, I made the wrong decis ion, but I ' ve been very happy and satisfied in what I ' ve done, " he added. " I think I would have had a lot of ulcers had I gone in- to the stockbroker ' s business. " " At one point in my life, " Ken- namer said, " I wanted to be a preacher. I came from a very religious family and had set my mind on atten- ding Pepperdine University in California to become a minister. I thought I wanted to be a real Bible- thumping preacher. It would have been fun to have been a revival or television preacher, but then I got drafted. " Kennamer eventually earn- ed a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt in Ten- nessee after serving as an ensign in the Navy, teaching high school students and attending two other universities. " I never did major to become an administrator, nor did I plan on becoming a dean, but I enjoy my position very much. Every day is dif- ferent. If I ever get tired of it, I ' ll get out. I still keep my hand in teaching, though; I teach a geography class every semester, " Kennamer said. Currently, Kennamer and the Col- lege of Education continued the work of the Human Resource Development Program, designed to teach people how to train others in industry and business. " This is a big field, " Ken- namer said. " In fact, there is three times more teaching and learning in industry and business than in all the schools and colleges put together. We are also continuing our involvement with the community because they are our laboratory where we student teach and where a lot of our faculty do their research. The community is our partner in our training program. " Kennamer, dedicated to The University since 1956, said his greatest accomplishments were writing such books as The Atlas of Texas and The History and Geography of Texas, his hobby, golf, and his position as dean of the Col- lege of Education.

This concept of the importance of play in a child ' s life was the basis for an international play conference held for the first time at The University from June 29-July 2, 1983, which at- tracted more than 500 participants. Directed by Joe L. Frost, chairman of The University ' s Department of Curriculum and Instruction, the play conference assembled the largest group of play researchers ever for such an event. Frost said, " The con- ference will explore research on play , the function and design of play en- viroments, and provide practical ideas for enhancing children ' s learn- ing through play. " The lack of safety standards for playground equipment was also emphasized. Along with the honorary sponsor of the conference, the Pacific Cultural Foundation of Taipei, Republic of China, and The University were 11 other sponsors. The Play Conference was divided into several sessions highlighted by such speakers as Jens Pedersen, chairman of the Planning Group for Children and Culture, from Copenhagen, Denmark; Shu- Fang Lo Chia, professor of child development at Fu-Jen University, Taipei; and other respected resear- chers from around the world. The conference included tours of seven Austin area playgrounds to evaluate the variety of equipment " Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood . . . " used. " Austin, " said Frost, " has the best playgrounds of any city its size in the country. " This was due in part to the work o f UT students. They designed play environments for various schools, churches and other groups requesting their ser- vices. According to Frost ' s records, approximately 60 percent of those environments designed had actually been built. Presented at the international play conference were 73 papers to be published in 1984 by the Association of Childhood Education International. According to Frost, the conference " exceeded all expectations. " With the success of this first play conference at The University, play has become serious business. Julie Del Barto Two young children enjoy the play environment designed by UT students at St. Martin ' s School Education 111 ZL Engineering WPCF Names Gloyna President Earnest F. Gloyna, dean of the Col- lege of Engineering, predicted that " within the next two or three years, we will have, in my opinion, the finest engineering teaching facilities in this country. " And so, the building boom continued with the construction of a new petroleum and chemical engineering facility. Gloyna also led his department through a massive ex- pansion in endowed faculty positions. Gloyna said, " The engineer of yesterday will not be capable of designing the manufacturing facilities of tomorrow. Therefore, if we are a world-class university, our engineering program should provide the leadership in the educational arena for this new industrialization of our country. " Our faculty must be ... well- grounded in the sciences and engineering technology, but also ac- tively involved in the cutting edge of research, " Gloyna said. They must, " above all, be interested in transmit- ting this new information to the stu- dent body along with the fundamen- tal principles of science and engineer- ing. " Second, he said, the college must provide " a teaching experience to the student body, both graduates and undergraduates, that is the very best that (it) can possibly deliver. " Finally, Gloyna said, " We must have the facilities that attract both (high quality) faculty and students. " The dean proudly stated that the college " ranks number six in the na- tion in terms of the number of Na- tional Academy of Engineering members among our faculty. " Gloyna said that being one of those members was his most prestigious honor. The dean ' s most recent award was the Venezuelan National Conservation Award. Gloyna was also elected 1983-84 president of the Water Pollu- tion Control Federation. Gloyna, dean of the College of Engineering since 1970, held the Bet- tie Margaret Smith Chair in En- vironmental Health Engineering. His many accomplishments included two books, 150 papers and 75 major reports, most on water supply and waste management. He was a consul- tant to the United Nations and World Health Organization, govern- ments of five countries, the U.S. Senate, and over 100 cities, industries and consulting firms since 1952. Dean Gloyna and the College of Engineering recently formulated the college ' s plan for the next six years. It was to guide the College of Engineer- ing ' s phenomenal growth and im- provement into the 1990s.

Petroleum engineering students would be studying the 13-inch diameter hole, which was filled with non-flammable liquids designed to simulate oil, gas and water. The well was designed to help pro- pel oil field operations into the com- puter age. Researchers hoped to devise computer applications in analyzing test wells. " It ' s a new area of development based on improved technology, " said Myron Dorfman, chairman of the Department of Petroleum Engineering. The laboratory accompanying the well would have " the latest digital meters, testing equipment and microcomputer capability so we can determine methods of stimulating oilfield operations and develop pro- grams to test and produce a well, " Dorfman said. " Say we have a well in a field that we want to test to see what it could produce, " Dorfman said. " Normally, we would manually divert the flow to a test tank and measure the oil, gas and water through a certain sized choke over a 24 hour period. In the future, we will do that entire pro- cedure with a computer. An automatic valve could be used to switch from one tank to another, and sensors could give a reading on the amounts of fluid on a computer on your desk. There might be a system to set the size of the opening by the push of a button, and automatic pro- tection to shut down the well if it overflowed. And if it can be done for one well, it can be done for 400. " August Podio, professor of petroleum engineering, said that courses dealing with surface produc- tion facilities, natural gas engineering and production will be conducted with the well. " The type of ex- periments we are concerned with in this vertical laboratory are those con- cerning flow of mixtures of oil, water and gas, " he said.

FineArts Dean Wills Stresses Improvements For many, the word " dean " con- jures up an image of a stuffy old bureaucrat hidden behind a desk stacked with papers. While one may have found J. Robert Wills, dean of the College of Fine Arts, behind his desk, one might as well have found him lecturing on acting techniques or directing a dramatic adaptation of Edgar Lee Master ' s Spoon River Anthology. While Wills called his school strong both academically and artistically, he stressed the need for continual im- provement. Wills and his staff were developing a five-year plan that would identify strengths and weaknesses in each department and then suggest programs and ideas to correct problem areas. Proposals to help meet the changing needs of the students included a music industry program, a jazz studies program and plans to offer an MFA in acting. One idea that came to fulfillment was an interdisciplinary class, which was offered this year after a two-year absence. The undergraduate class gave students the chance to combine and learn skills in all areas of the arts: art, music, drama and dance. Helping prepare and launch aspir- ing artists was the main intent of the school. However, Wills also stressed developing an appreciative audience as another aim. " We have a respon- sibility to create and nourish an au- dience that has a real understanding of the artistic world, " he said. Developing that understanding meant educating those who were not familiar with art. Wills proudly noted that 1983 fall enrollment figures showed that non-majors accounted for 44 percent of the school ' s total enrollment. The school ' s influence was not limited to The University communi- ty, either. It ran various art and art appreciation programs in cooperation with the Austin Independent School District and offered a number of pro- grams in dance, opera and theater for young people. Cooperation could also be seen in the reciprocating relationships bet- ween The University and Austin fine arts groups. The Austin Symphony Orchestra performed in the Perform- ing Arts Center, and conductor, Sung Kwak, also directed the UT Sym- phony Orchestra. In addition, many faculty and students played in the symphony. The University also reached the community through over 700 public performances the department spon- sored this year. Wills summed up the college ' s attitude when he said, " We see ourselves as not only a university arts group, but also as one that can serve all of central Texas. " Lisa Gaumnitz . .

" Cassandra Jackson obligingly bounced lower and lower in time to the piano. This was just warm-up. Before the class was over, instructor Yacov Sharir led Jackson and her classmates through a rigorous series of plies, jetes and leaps that would have humbled the non-dancer. The class ended as the last chords from the piano faded. For Jackson and a number of her classmates, this 9 a.m. class was the first in a day of several dance workouts that could well have stretched into the late evening hours. However, Jackson was used to the hard work and sacrifice her chosen field demanded. Along with nine ARTS winners, Betsy McCracken and Cassandra Jackson, warm up with graceful stretches. ARTS winner, Hollis Jones perfects her positioning under the eye of instructor Yacov Sharir. other UT students in the C ollege of Fine Arts, Jackson was identified as being among the most promising young artists in the country. The 10 achieved that distinction as seniors in high school after competing in the Achievement, Recognition and Talent Search, a program designed to identify 17 and 18-year-olds for their excellence in the fine arts. " I ' m very supportive and ap- preciative of the ARTS program and the scholarship offered through the President ' s Office, " said Coleman Jennings, chairman of the Depart- ment of Drama. " It ' s an excellent program and is going to help us in at- tracting superior instate and out-of- state students. " According to Michelle Kohoutek, the scholarship made attending The University of Texas an opportunity that was just too good to pass up. " I had been to the art department and was really impressed by all the things available to me there, " she said. " And, I didn ' t think I could find those things anywhere else. " Kohoutek added that the scholarship money made it possible for her to have top equipment and art supplies. The fine reputation of the fine arts faculty at The University and the scholarship lured Cassandra Jackson to The University. " UT was my first choice, " she said, " and, after I got the scholarship, it seemed to be the best choice. " For Ramona Jackson, whose talent and national recognition as a top young dancer brought her offers from schools all over the country, coming to Texas posed a personal challenge for her. " I had heard a lot of good things about The University dance program, " she said, " and when I at- tended a master class taught by Sharon Vasquez, I found the class difficult and challenging for me, so I decided to come to some place where I wouldn ' t feel comfortable, instead of a place where I would feel comfor- table and be able to do all the dance techniques.

Not content to rest on the laurels of the past, he sought to help build The University into " a truly motivated, academic institution. " " Since The University is a research enterprise, we need resources and support, and we have had it, " Liv- ingston said. What he was referring to was the support The University found in Texas. " We ' ve had great support from the constituency of Texas, " Liv- ingston said. " That includes the peo- " Recently, we have set up a staff that manages a far- ranging set of activities designed to recruit minority students with strong poten- tials for advanced study in the graduate program and the professional school. " pie of Texas and the Board of Regents. " One way the Graduate Studies Division reached Texas residents was through recruitment of minority students. In 1983, over 500 black, Mexican American, Puerto Rican and native American students from throughout the United States were enrolled in various graduate and professional programs at The University. " Recently, we have set up a staff that manages a far-ranging set of ac- tivities designed to recruit minority students with strong potentials for advanced study in the graduate pro- gram and the professional school, " Livingston added. Programs for qualified minority graduate students included the Graduate Opportunity Fellowship, which provided $5,000 for qualified incoming students. The Danforth Compton Fellowship was designed particularly for Ph.D. candidates. " These scholarships aim to attract and assist minority students, " Liv- ingston said. April 15-17, 1984, The University served as host for the first national Dorothy Danforth Compton Con- ference, drawing nearly 100 graduates from 10 universities across the country who held Danforth Compton Fellowships. It was through such concentration on minority educational oppor- tunities that Livingston had earned the respect for the Graduate Studies Division statewide. Lotte Chow Dean William S. Livingston pursues his long time interest in the history of British government. 116 Graduate Studies -il... . i A GraduateStudies l Disciplines Divide Graduate Work " Once you are there, the level of expectation is incredibly high, " Patty Wood said, describing her life as a graduate student. Wood, a photojournalism student, was among the many students who faced the stress and competition of graduate studies at The University. " People who went on to graduate studies were either talented in their fields or tough, " she added. At the graduate level, studies were divided into disciplines. These were normally associated with depart- ments. Some might be broader in scope, involving courses and research in several departments, while others might be narrower and composed of one department. It depended on the student ' s field of interest. There were three areas of study: course work, independent study and independent research. " That ' s why a graduate student and an undergraduate are so dif- ferent, " Wood said, " especially in terms of independence and respon- sibility. A graduate student has a lot more say in his or her own project. " For example, it was Wood ' s idea to go to Honduras to take photographs for news stories to familiarize herself with international news reporting. Her professor approved the idea, and Wood was soon on her way to Central America. Other forms of graduate study such as internships, field studies and pro- fessional training gave graduate students opportunities to practice while they learned. However, the most challenging part of graduate studies was research. Students had to do their own in- dividual research, and develop a thesis or dissertation based on that research. " Though it is hard, " Wood said of graduate life, " when you ' re out, there is a difference. For one thing, you are more marketable. " Lotte Chow Documenting daily life in Honduras is the research project of Patty Wood. GraduateStudies 117 ZL LawSchool 4 Sutton Delivers Resignation When John F. Sutton Jr. was nam- ed dean of the Law School in 1979, he told The Daily Texan: " In my judg- ment, this school is at an important crossroad. The next three or four years will determine whether this school ' s role of leadership, in the state or nation, will continue or decline. " Four years later, Dean Sutton felt that the prevailing quality of the students had increased, the quality of the faculty was excellent and the tenure standards were a little stronger. " We have gone forward, no question, " he said. " The school is be- ing recognized more and more as a strong national school. " Even though the Law School had progressed, innovations were still be- ing introduced, especially curriculum improvements. There were nine con- tinuing legal education programs in the fall, almost half of which were new. Conferences on new venue rules concerning the locality in which a jury is drawn and a case tried, cable TV, criminal law and new rules of evidence were among the offerings. A writing seminar for lawyers held in the summer, Sutton said was " getting a good response " for the fall. An aim of the Law School was to acquire faculty members valuable in both the classroom and in research. According to Sutton, some strived to stress teaching while others stressed writing, but, he said, " A top law school needs faculty composed of professors who can do both quite well. " The fine faculty acquired was one of the contributing factors to the Law School ' s excellent reputation. The UT Law School was ranked llth or 12th nation wide according to many surveys. Dedicated to making the Law School even better than its present standard of excellence, Sut- ton realized changes can not occur overnight. He felt the best thing to do was to " give the school direction. " Although he took the school this far, the Law School ' s financial pro- blems remained. When Sutton ac- cepted his position, he expressed the desire for the school to become more financially secure; it, however, had not become as secure as he would have liked. Anxious to return to teaching, Sutton relinquished his deanship and his " reserved parking space " as of Aug. 31, 1984. " I miss the time to do things like hobbies. At my back, " he said, " I always hear time ' s winged chariot near. " Christy Taylor . Having led the Law School to its present state of excellence, Dean Sutton relinquishes his deanship effective Aug. 31, 1984 to teach. 118 LawSchool LawSchool l 1 N V 1 Taylor Admission Process Proves Hectic They came from 148 undergraduate institutions across the nation, 508 students, 37.6 percent women and a minority representation of 20.7 percent.

An applicant had to earn a bac- calaureate degree from an accredited college or university and take the Law School Admission Test to be eligible for admission. Ninety credit hours, not including College Level Examination Program credits, with a minimum GPA of 2.2 were to be com- pleted before entering the Law School. The median GPA of the 1982 entering class was 3.54. The median LSAT score was 39 on a scale of 50, which lay in the 88th percentile. These and other factors were taken into consideration by the Admissions Advisory Committee, composed of faculty members and students. The committee began with the numbers, because those were con- sidered predictors of success in law school. But, they also looked at per- sonal information. Special criteria for admission included exceptional per- sonal talents, ethnic background, unique work or service experience and any history of overcoming ex- traordinary disadvantages. In the 1982 entering class, one of every three resident applicants was offered admission. Because of a UT System Board of Regents ' rule which limited nonresident enrollment to 10 percent, one of 12 nonresident ap- plications was offered admission. According to Michael Sharlot, associate Dean for Academic Affairs: " Virtually all surveys evaluating the relative standing of American law schools show Texas in or knocking the door of the top 10. " Because of this, competition was high when it came to admission to the UT Law School. Something important to remember was that the committee looked for a diverse student body consequently, classes varied each year. Someone denied admission one year might have been accepted the next, so an applicant should not get discouraged he or she might have what it takes. Christy Taylor LSAT Test and Admissions Forms are two processes followed by perspective law students. Law School 119 L PublicAffairs Sherman Accepts Dean ' s Position Max Sherman, dean of the Lyndon Baines Johnson School of Public Af- fairs, sifted through the contents of his desk drawer and retrieved a dog- eared pamphlet from its depths. Tur- ning to a well-worn passage written by Lyndon B. Johnson upon the opening of the school in 1971, Sher- man said, " This, I think better than anything else, sums up the philosophy of the school. Above all, I hope that as students master new techniques and disciplines to im- prove the machinery of government, they will still build their careers of service around a dedication to one of the most cherished principles of our democracy: the greatest good for the greatest number. " Training tomorrow ' s leaders to " improve the machinery " remained the guiding principle behind the LBJ School. " Those who enroll in the school, " Sherman said, " bring a great deal of optimism and a sense of giv- ing. These people haven ' t lost that spirit of wanting to make a difference. " That spirit emanated from Sher- man. A two-term legislator in the Texas Senate and former president of West Texas State University, he shared his considerable wealth of knowledge and experience with the School of Public Affairs ' 200 students. He also delighted in lending an ex- perienced voice in discussions with his students. " I think they are always interested in the experiences of so- meone who has held elective office, " Sherman said. That combination of theoretical politics and practical applications helped to distinguish LBJ as one of the top public affairs schools in the nation. " We have a very fine faculty with a lot of areas of expertise represented, " Sherman said. Such noted public figures as former congresswoman Barbara Jordan, former Secretary of Health Education and Welfare, Wilbur Cohen and former postmaster general John Gronouski " bring ex- cellent academic credentials and a full range of public policy to the school, " he said. While Sherman was pleased with the current status of the school, he was not content to let it rest on its laurels. " Our goal is to continue to enhance our national reputation, " he said. " To achieve this, the school will continue to recruit outstanding facul- ty for chaired positions and en- courage research and publication by faculty members. " Lisa Gaumnitz Max Sherman, dean of the LBJ School of Public Affairs, works " to enhance our national reputation.

" And this man ' s )) ' I ' ' - List I determination and his skill in the agonizing art of turning dreams into law worked the miracle when lesser men could only stamp their feet in frustration. " That man, Wilbur Cohen, professor of public affairs at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, was still turning those dreams into reality in 1984. At 71, Cohen had received many awards for public service, including the Rockefeller Public Service award and the Jane Addams award. Since coming to The University in 1980, Cohen remained highly visible in public concerns. As a research assistant to the committee that drafted the original Social Security Act, and then as staff member of the Social Security Board, Cohen was deeply committed to assuring the future of the program. In 1983-84, he served as cochairman of the National Save Our Security Coalition. " I think we, the coalition, were rather successful in defeating the ad- ministration ' s original plan to cut back drastically on the system, " Cohen said. " I am simply happy that it has been preserved and occupies a more important role in society than it did before. " Cohen managed to pursue active membership in a variety of organiza- tions. He was a member of the Gray Panther Advisory Committee, the American Economic Association and the National Wildflower Research Center. " Generally, " he noted, " my interests have been in and are in bridging the academic world with the real world. " In 1983-1984, Cohen taught a seminar dealing with research on medical indigents in Texas those who could not afford proper medical care. He was currently seeking a solu- tion to this problem. " In fact, " Cohen said, " I would like to develop a na- tional health care plan that would in- sure all Americans for all major health costs from birth to death. " Cohen still managed to find the time in his busy schedule for his favorite hobby, stamp collecting. An avid collector since childhood, Cohen had found a way to combine his stamp collecting with another of his interests, Texas history. As a member of the U.S. Postal Service Citizens ' Advisory Commit- tee, Cohen would have a hand in selecting the stamp that would com- memorate the Sesquicentennial, a celebration of Texas ' 150 years of statehood. The stamp, once selected, would be printed in 1986. " I ' ve been a stamp collector since I was about 10, and that ' s about 60 years, " he said. " I enjoy my work, and in this case, it fits in with my interest in Texas history. " Lisa Gaumnitz f Wilbur Cohen, professor of public affairs, works closely with students in group discussions. Public Affair 121 ZL Library AndlnformationScience IZ Graduates Enjoy Meeting People Specialists in the information field were needed everywhere - even in prison. UT graduate Carolyn Bucknall, assistant director for Collection Development at the Perry- Castaneda Library, had expected this for a long time. Among those who graduated with Bucknall in the early 60 ' s, many have found diverse jobs. The most interesting currently- employed UT graduates included the administrative head of the San Francisco library system and a prison system librarian. In fact, recent graduates from The University held all types of positions in information-related fields. They ranged from the direc- tor of the national library system in an Arab country to a coor- dinator of state library services to migrant workers to an owner of a children ' s book store. A lot of these professionals entered information science because they enjoyed organization and meeting people. The 1.6 million people now employed in the information- related profession made it one of the fastest growing fields in the United States. For UT graduates, 85 per cent found jobs within six months of graduation. The job of an information specialist - a librarian of the modern age was once the task of the eccentric few. With computer-based retention of infor- mation, though, the capacity for its use by science, business and academic fields broadened. Thus, the eccentric few evolved into elec- tronic many, and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science stepped in to fill the need.

Some people do. Ronald Wyllys, acting dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, said, " One of the best kept secrets of bird-watching, " he said, " is that you very often find the richest concentra- tion of aquatic birds around sewage ponds. " He explained, using a simple ecological model. The fish are found in the ponds because of the abundant nutrients, and the aquatic birds are present because they feed on the fish. Wyllys and his wife spend time at " One of the best kept secrets of bird-watching is that you very often find the richest con- centration of aquatic birds around sewage ponds. " the sewage ponds in East Austin, en- joying the aquatic birds. They also go to more scenic spots such as the Longhorn Dam and the hill country to observe other types of birds. Wyllys said he had found many species of birds because the area about Austin ig at the intersection of four different ecological regions and is also the flight route for seasonal mi- grations. So how did all this fit in with Wyllys ' s position as dean? He said it was enjoyable and definitely relaxing a chance to leave behind his loads of academic paperwork.

UT Expands as Regional Leader " When Athens finally wanted not to give to society, but for society to give to them when the Freedom that they wished for was freedom from Responsibility then Athens ceased to be free. " Prominently displayed on the wall of Thomas Hat- field, dean of the Division of Conti- nuing Education, this quotation sym- bolized the philosophy of the division. Continuing education ad- ministered programs and services to 40,000 people at The University last year and became the recognized leader for its professional programs in the Southwest. " The University has been prominent for three- quarters of a century in public ser- vice, " said Hatfield, " expressed by continuing education and extension. " Among the successful professional development programs offered by The University, several, including engineering, achieved widespread recognition. Hatfield said, " The Col- lege of Engineering set a clear goal to make UT Austin the primary place for continuing engineering education, and it is accomplished. This is the place that engineers in the Southwest, and increasing throughout the nation, want to come for their seminars. " He also cited the architecture program, the premier structure for updating architectural skills between the coasts, and the Petroleum Extension Service, as other examples of successful profes- sional education at The University. Personal development was the logical goal of continuing education when Cambridge University began the first programs in the 1850 ' s at- tempting to bring a liberal education to the working classes. " A major part of the service from a college or university is what that in- stitution does for adults that are not degree-seeking students the public service dimension of The University and my interest in that led me into a career as an adult educator, " Hat- field said. It was that very commitment to public service, the purpose of conti- nuing education at The University, that helped keep the fate of Athens from being repeated in Texas.

Above, a geologist testing core samples of this mixture for signs of oil and gas checks his results in a manual. The manual is from the Petroleum Extension Ser- vice, a subdivision of The Univer- sity ' s Division of Continuing Educa- tion and the world ' s leader in petroleum industry publications. Since 1944, PETEX produced training manuals for field level per- sonnel in the petroleum industry. Most of the publications were design- ed to be understood by even novice roughnecks. PETEX training manuals were available in many foreign languages and were used all over the world. The agency ' s profi- ciency in publishing, however, led to some problems. " Infringement of copyright is a major problem because we are so far ahead in this field, " said Dr. Thomas Hatfield, dean of Conti- nuing Education. Audiovisual production provided by PETEX included slide-tape pro- grams, movies and video productions. PETEX also offered special pro- grams, correspondence courses and short courses concerning the in- dustry, along with operating three petroleum technological institutes. By developing publications and audiovisual materials and by operating schools and special pro- grams, PETEX guided roughnecks and geologists from Odessa to In- donesia in t e search for the fuel and lubricants of the world.

" These are the opening lines of the translated prologue to Chaucer ' s The Centerbury Tales the original manuscript was written in a dialect unintelligible to most 20th century readers. For Robert King, however, the original would be quite clear. King, dean of the College of Liberal Arts, was an expert in the field of such developing dialects. In his work, King pursued theories of how languages Chinese, French, Danish and Spanish, among others have changed throughout history. " The principles of historical change seem to be universal, " he said. King originally became interested in linguistics through his knowledge of German and his work with IBM. In 1983, King was able to publish three articles on linguistics. Major changes were implemented by the College of Liberal Arts as it strove to comply with the recommen- dations of the Vick Committee, which stressed the importance of writing in collegiate degree plans at The University. " Every department is going to have certain courses in which, in addition to having tests or quizzes, " King said, " students are go- ing to have to write papers. " According to King, following The University ' s Centennial celebration, the endowment for Liberal Arts rose from $1 million to $12 million. The number of endowed chairs and pro- fessorships went from three to 60 positions. UT president Peter Flawn ' s Centennial Convocation speech, and much discussion during the year, focused on the value of a liberal arts education as opposed to one from a professional school. In the Spring, 1983, issue of Texas Academe, King summed his opinion: " I think it is im- portant for us to maintain a certain aloofness to the ' decline of the liberal arts ' that everybody thinks they see. Our job now is no different than it has ever been: to teach facts and ideas; to understand our world and its past; to show how things are related; to teach our students something about life and help them find their way in it; to show them that beauty lies in poetry and preci- sion of thought, and in the discipline of learning. " Thomas E. Trahan Liberal Arts dean, Robert King, pursues theories of how languages change throughout history. 124 Liberal Arts 71 LiberalArts ts are Humanities Afford Flexibility Smalltown schoolmarms have long occupied a place in American folk legend as the cultural leaders of their communities. Encouraging reading, directing plays and leading civic organizations, these single women played an important role in their societies. The study of that role shaped the senior project of a humanities major. This project was exemplary of the humanities program because it combined two major disciplines, education and sociology, into a single coherent thesis. " The Humanities Program, " said Larry Carver, director of the pro- gram, " while encouraging the in- depth study of a subject one receives in a traditional major, also affords students great flexibility in pursuing related subjects in a way structured by the students. " The introduction to the program explained that a student wishing to pursue a career in the foreign service might focus on the misunderstan- dings between cultures through a study of anthropology, government, foreign language and drama courses. Many similarly broad mixes actual- ly formed majors for students. One student interested in applied music and its uses in society combin- ed music, English and foreign languages. Another, interested in art collections, selected art history, French and English. Using German, modern philosophy and music, one student followed his interest in turn-of-the-century Ger- man philosophy and culture. Study- ing in South Texas, another student studied the ramifications of Mexican and U.S. law on oil exploration with Spanish, government and law. Upper division courses centered around such subjects as the great ideas and writings of Western culture. While humanities was not an honors program, students were ex- pected to have a 3.0 GPA to par- ticipate. The courses were open to students from any college. " The humanities program, " Carver said, " emphasizes the belief in the power of human beings to act a recognition that humans can make free choices that expand possibility as well as carrying responsibility. While all of this brings on a certain humility, we try to emphasize the op- portunities. " Thomas E. Trahan The study of the humanities is exemplified in Auguste Rodin ' s " Man with a Broken Nose.

" " Each department, " Boyer said, " was encouraged to have a group of anywhere from 10 to 20 persons, from alumni to people in industry, to peo- ple in agencies who are highly qualified in those disciplines, to visit the departments on a semi-annual basis. " Boyer was also proud of the Dean ' s Scholar Program, under the direction of Michael P. Starbird, which enroll- ed 41 students in 1983-84. " It ' s a pro- gram destined to grow, " Boyer said, " and will have a lot of impact in the sciences.

While computer sciences was one of the most alluring subjects, Boyer said, " The big emphasis in the life sciences is molecular biology. " The College of Natural Sciences is " mak- ing a premeditated effort to increase its recruiting thrust in molecular biology, " he said. " It ' s in many respects the future of the life sciences.

Byron D. Tapley of the UT- Austin Center for Space Research said the change might be compared to a rubber ball slowly regaining its shape after being squeezed. Tapley worked on the project with Bob Schutz, also of the UT center; Richard Eanes, a doctoral student in engineering; and three researchers from the California Institute of Technology. " Changes in the Earth ' s gravity field (caused) variations in the orbit of Lageos, " Schutz said. " Those gravity changes (reflected) changes in Earth ' s shape, the rebound of the planet ' s crust a long-term and previously undetected response " to the end of the last Ice A ge. The satellite was designed to be as dense and compact as possible to avoid atmospheric drag. Its aluminum exterior was spotted like a golf ball, with retro-reflectors which bounced back to the Earth pulsed laser beams sent from ground sta- tions. The time the pulse took on its round trip was measured with an ac- curacy approaching billionths of a second. From these measurements, Lageos ' s height above the Earth was calculated at various points. A number of applications were found for the data from the study. From analysis of the motion of the continents there came a better understanding of tectonic plates, the floating jigsaw pieces of the Earth ' s crust, Tapley said. The researchers also confirmed seasonal changes in the Earth ' s rotation which had ap- plications to meteorologists and oceanographers studying long-term climate variations. Tapley said that in the future, University researchers will continue to study the Lageos data, including an examination of an unknown force that appears to be acting on the satellite.

" I have two professions that I like very much, one is teaching and one is be- ing a pharmacist and I ' m able to do both. " As the Hoechst-Roussel Professor of Pharmacy, Doluisio taught classes on bioequivalency and physical phar- macy, his area of specialization. He also studied pharmacokinetics, which deals with absorption and elimina- tion of drugs through the body. Doluisio had written extensively on bioequivalency and drug absorption, biopharmaceutics, physical phar- macy and pharmacy education, pro- ducing more than 67 papers for various national and international journals, textbooks and conferences. Although proud of his ac- complishments in biopharmaceutics and physical pharmacy, he felt U T was was unique in its ability to affect society than he as an individual could be.

" the practice of our profession, not only in Texas, but throughout the country, " Doluisio said. And he found serving in such a program to be rewarding. Although concerned over the adversary role the Food and Drug Administration played in drug discovery, Doluisio said he believed " in the ability of good government and good regulation to be a powerful force. " Doluisio had served as a con- sultant to the Department of Health Education and Welfare, the F.D.A., and the U.S. Office of Technology Assess ment. In 1983-84, he was serv- ing as a consultant to the surgeon general of the U.S. Air Force. Doluisio was proud of the college ' s overall progress in recent years, citing the quality of teaching and research and better students as the primary reason for the program ' s success.

" We ' ve tried to develop an attitude in the college that ' s very pro- student, " Doluisio said. " And we believe in a responsibility not only to educate the person, but to develop them professionally. " At an all day orientation and lunch for incoming students, Doluisio said, " We just tell them: you may have come from a large program. Here we ' re a much more personal pro- gram. " This idea was reinforced through events such as the annual faculty-student Christmas party and some limited financial support for student pharmacy organizations. The faculty was an important in- gredient in the success of the college. Because of its ability to attract quali- ty teacher-researchers, the college was regarded as one of the five best in the nation. The quality of research done by faculty earned the college numerous grants and led to increased support from the pharmaceutical in- dustry, with the establishment of more than 24 endowed professorships since 1976. " As our program has acquired a na- tional reputation, the quality of students coming into the program has gotten increasingly better, " associate professor James W. McGinity said. " We ' re just getting to the point where we ' ll be able to go out and recruit the creme de le creme of prospective students, " he said. The past growth in college programs and student enrollment have stabilized, and the college will " be more depen- dent upon individual, people growth, " Doluisio said. Edward Peete Pharmacy 129 1_ I Nursing Attracts Male Students Texas nursing programs must at- tract more male and other non- traditional students into the nursing profession in order to keep a steady supply of nurses for the future. This was the conclusion of an 18-month study presented to the coordinating board of the Texas College and University System. The report, Nursing Education in Texas: Directions for the Future, predicted a shortage of 4,000 registered nurses in Texas by 1987 unless student recruitment efforts were improved. Because of the ex- panding career opportunities for women and a decline in the college age population, the traditional pool " Women are choosing other fields with higher income. " " We need to begin looking into other sources. " of recent high school graduates was no longer there. " Women are choos- ing other fields with higher income, " Yvonne Newman, director of health affairs for the coordination board, said. " We need to begin looking into other sources, " she said. Also shown in the report was the increased isolation of medical and nursing schools. Cooperation be- tween schools would improve the relationship between nurses and physicians and would decrease the high turnover rates among hospital nurses, the report said. Newman said, " This report is a recommendation that institutions study the various ways to increase enrollment. " Marcia Crook Nursing T. Billye J. Brown, dean of the School of Nursing, demonstrates proper syringe procedure. Doctorate Plan Offers Opportunities for Students Even though Billye J. Brown, dean of the School of Nursing, was kept busy with meetings, phone calls, presentations and other duties of her position, she always made time for tennis. With a tennis court in her backyard, Brown spent many hours enjoying her game, working in the yard and spending time with friends. These activities, along with her many professional duties, made Brown a multi-faceted person. As dean, Brown was interested in keeping up with changing policies and legislative activities in nursing. As president of the National Association of Colleges of Nursing, Brown said she was " quite involved " in legislation on the national scene. She was also involved in the National Advisory Council of Nurse Training. This council, composed of a 20- member panel, met two or three times a year to review grant applica- tions funded by the Nurse Training Act. Brown traveled to Washington, B.C., regularly to attend these na- tional conventions. Along with her participation in these national organizations, Brown was also involved with the many ac- tivities and changes occurring within the UT School of Nursing. " Our School of Nursing is one of only 25 schools of nursing in the country offering Ph.D.s in nursing, " Brown said. This plan offered a varie- ty of opportunities for returning students who had gained experience in the field. Training to be an administrator in a hospital, a nursing facility or in a school of nursing were just some of the choices available to returning nurses. Other options included specializations in research or in the teaching profession. With the additional programs and changes in the curriculum, the UT School of Nursing, directed by Brown, was adapting to constant changes in the nursing profession. Julie Del Barto 130 Nursing ZL SocialWork Social Work dean, Martha Williams heads the State Commission on Women. Williams Heads Commission Balancing the roles of wife, mother and student, Martha Williams, dean of the School of Social Work, took on still another task by becoming head of Gov. Mark White ' s State Commis- sion on Women. The UT Board of Regents approv- ed Williams ' appointment June 17, 1983. Only the fourth women ' s com- mission in the history of Texas, the SCW filled the void left by the disintegration of the Commission on the Status of Women under Gov. Bill Clements. " A lot is going on in Texas for women, " Williams said. " I ' ve seen great changes in the last 15 to 20 years. I am quite sure we will see in- creased progress and that Texas will take the lead in women ' s issues. " Williams believed her position on the commission was complementary to her job as dean of the School of Social Work. She said that, among other things, it added an alternative avenue of research for students. The public speaking she did for the com- mission was also a factor in helping the image of the school, she said. According to Williams, the UT School of Social Work had the oppor- tunity to be the best in the country. The faculty was excellent, she said, and this was a reflection on the image of the School of Social Work. " We have a particularly strong school in the sense of the students, " she said. " We get the best, in my opi- nion. The School of Social Work has a strong commitment to be unique in the sense of social services to the Southwest, " Williams said. " Being at The University of Texas gives us a big boost in the sense of higher education, " concluded Williams. " Those of us who were smart enough to come to The Univer- sity see that Texas is the place to be in the next century we are lucky to be here. " Christy Taylor Center Studies Child Abuse The number of single parent families and families with working mothers had been on the rise for the past 20 years. In the 10 years since 1973, Texas had experienced a 27 percent population increase com- pared to the national 11 percent average. The high percentage of movement into the state, coupled with changing traditional family roles, placed an added burden on relationships with children. Sadly, following in the wake of this was an increasing amount of child abuse and neglect. Michael Lauder- dale, associate professor in the School of Social Work, confronted this pro- blem as the director of the Resource Center for Children, Youth and Families. The center brought together skills from social work, law, medicine and psychology, with additional expertise contributed by individuals at state and community levels. The amount of child abuse and neglect, the kinds of families where it occurred, and how effectively the legal system dealt with abuse and neglect were the chief concerns of the center. It helped write and rewrite law and administrative regulations concerning family codes. Lauderdale said there was more volunteer activity dealing with abuse and neglect than ever before. And, he said, improvements were being made in legal codes protecting the rights of children and family members. In-depth studies were used to determine what could be done to sup- port family life, especially in rapidly growing cities. Day care centers as well as extended care programs of- fered by some schools, offered a few solutions. With centers such as at the School of Social Work, child abuse and other family problems were getting the at- tention they deserved. Christy Taylor Social Work 131 VICE PRESIDENTS The Whole is only as good as the Sum of Its Parts. " The whole is only as good as the sum of its parts " was an expression that could readily be applied to The University of Texas at Austin. The whole in this the case The Univer- sity was a fitting tribute to the ex- cellence of its parts the ad- ministration, faculty and students. One group in particular, six men and one woman, were instrumental in keeping this mammoth institution running smoothly throughout the year, though they remained largely unknown to the students. Each vice president oversaw dif- ferent areas of The University, yet they stressed the importance of com- munication between the seven of- fices. " There is an enormous amount of interaction between the vice presidents, " Ronald Brown, vice president of student affairs said. Brown was probably the most visi- ble of the seven. Not only did he teach a course on educational ad- ministration, but as the vice presi- dent in charge of student affairs, he was involved in all aspects of student life at UT. Brown said that admis- sions concerns took up a good deal of his time this year, as The University stepped up its efforts to attract more National Merit Scholars and more minorities to the school. William Livingston, vice president and dean of graduate studies, also represented a vital link between ad- ministration, faculty and students. Livingston headed the graduate studies program, which boasted a minority recruitment program rank- ing it among the finest in the country. Although students might not have known Gerhard Fonken in his capaci- ty as vice president for academic af- fairs and research, many have had the opportunity to meet him in the classroom. Fonken taught a course in chemistry when he was not busy with the process of hiring faculty or super- vising and encouraging research sponsored by The University. As right hand man to Flawn, Robert Mettlen became a master at handling presidential inquiries, com- plaints, informational requests and reports. Having served as vice presi- dent for administration since 1980, Mettlen devoted much of his time to the matching funds program for en- dowed faculty chairs. Under that pro- gram, the Texas Legislature pledged to match donations given for the Centennial commemoration dollar-for-dollar. Shirley Bird Perry, vice president for centennial affairs, also spent time on the matching funds program. She worked to establish public relations for the program and to develop fund raising for the cause. " The results so far have been substantially beyond our most op- timistic predictions of two or three years ago, " Mettlen said. Mettlen estimated that more than $50 million had been collected and that over 700 endowed chairs, professorships and other positions had been created. Another of the seven who played a vital role in The University ' s monetary affairs was G. Charles Franklin, vice president of business affairs, who oversaw the construction of the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Building. Franklin also oversaw the planned expansion of The University ' s power plant. One who worked closely with Franklin on all aspects of The University ' s business affairs was senior vice president James Colvin. Colvin also undertook a number of special assignments from the presi- dent, one of which was planning for the development of the Balcones Research Center. Lisa Gaumnitz FIRST ROW: Shirley B. Perry.

In a year highlighted by the climax of The University ' s Centennial celebration, the accumulation of top national rankings by University graduate programs and extensive coverage of The University in the na- tional media, University President Peter Flawn had much to smile about. Of course , the successful baseball, women ' s basketball, and football teams to name a few - didn ' t hurt, either. Flawn stressed two aspects of the Centennial celebration he believed would affect The University for years to come. First, he said, the tremen- dous increase of endowed positions created during the year would strengthen the ability of The Univer- sity to recruit and retain recognized faculty. Second, the report of the Centen- nial Commission was important because it affirmed The University as the flagship of the UT System, and because it contradicted the myth that the campus is overbuilt. " We ' ve been written about in Forbes, Time, The New York Times . . . " The dedication of Centennial Park exemplified the close relationship developing between The University and the city of Austin, Flawn said. Coinciding with the Centennial, Flawn said, there seemed to be a " year of the media. " " We ' ve been written about in Forbes, Time, The New York Times, and the Washington Post. The Smithsonian is going to do a story on us. Each of the reporters with whom I ' ve spoken seems to be aware that something is going on here that is more than a 100th birthday, and they want to know what it is, " Flawn said. Notoriety came to The University in other areas, also. In a rating of graduate programs across the nation, The University placed 18 of its pro- grams in the top 20 in their disciplines. The graduate botany pro- gram was rated first in the nation. The Humanities Research Center continued its rise to prominence as a major center for rare collections as it acquired a new collection of original manuscripts by French composers, including Maurice Ravel. Flawn also said The University was second only to Harvard in the number of National Merit scholars enrolled. Characterizing the students at The University, Flawn said that he saw two student populations. One, about 25% of the students, he said, were traditional, extracur- ricularly active students. He said that a larger portion were serious students with heavy loads, jobs and little time for outside activities. He said these students were not apathetic they have a great interest in their classes and were oriented to the serious con- sumption of education. A professor specializing in economic geology, Flawn had studied the applications of geology to mineral resources and environmental issues. Flawn was appointed interim vice president in 1972, and then was ask- ed to stay. He later served as presi- dent of the new UT-San Antonio. In 1979, Flawn was appointed president of The University by unanimous vote of the Board of Regents. Thomas E. Trahan President Peter Flawn sings " The Eyes of Texas " to celebrate UT ' s 100th birthday party. President 133 REGENTS The Board Sustains the Spirit of the Centennial Aspiring to become one of the top five universities in the nation, The University of Texas at Austin was fully endorsed by the UT System Board of Regents. The University ' s Centennial celebration came to a close in December, 1983, with the lowering of the flag and a pledge from chairman of the Board of Regents, Jon Newton, " to sustain the spirit of this keenly exciting Centennial year for at least 100 more. " " This University is much better because we celebrated, acknowledged and took the time to say, ' Happy 100th Birthday ' , " Newton said. By matching available Permanent University Fund dollars with gift funds for endowed positions for two years after the Centennial, the regents increased support for research and undergraduate pro- grams. The regents also established new policy guidelines. Recruitment of even higher quality faculty and tougher admission standards were part of these guidelines. A committee of regents was ap- pointed by Newton on June 17, 1983, to carry out the objectives of the Per- manent University Fund College Construction Fund Constitutional Amendment if adopted in November 1984 by Texas voters. " The setting of priorities, the allocation of resources, the definition " . . . to sustain the spirit of this keenly exciting Centen- nial year for at least 100 more. " of clear roles and missions for each System component and careful linkage of resource allocations to coherent long-term planning pursuit of academic excellence at each of our institutions always important in a theoretical sense to the proper execu- tion of regental responsibilities will become absolutely vital to enlightened decision-making by the Board of Regents under the provi- sions of the proposed constitutional amendment, " Newton added. The board approved a 1,000-car parking garage at a cost of $4.7 million, and preliminary plans for a football facility south of Memorial Stadium at $7 million. Until the debt is paid, the garage would be operated on a rate basis. The garage would replace a student lot near Simkins Hall and a faculty lot near the School of Law. Bond pro- ceeds would finance $3 million of the cost. The Penick-Allison tennis courts would be the sight of the new football facility, with modern dressing and training facilities and an artificial turf rooftop practice field. Anxious to face the challenges of remaining a first class university, the UT Board of Regents was dedicated to helping The University live up to its reputation of excellence.

" I am pleased to have the oppor- tunity to resume a career in the health field, " said Everitt Donald Walker, chancellor of The University of Texas System. On September 1, 1984, one year earlier than he had originally plan- ned, Walker retired from his position as chancellor to accept the executive director position offered by the board of trustees of the Hermann Hospital Estate. Walker planned to continue his association with the UT System, since Hermann Hospital was a primary teaching facility of The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. At the time of his resignation, Walker was completing an almost 30-year association with The Univer- sity. In 1955, he took the job of business manager and comptroller of hospitals of the UT Medical Branch in Galveston, and in 1964 was named associate director of the branch. In 1965, Walker joined the UT System Administration as director of facilities, planning and construction and later held the positions of acting chancellor, president and deputy chancellor before being named chancellor on Oct. 19, 1978. With six years behind him as chancellor, Walker felt the four most exciting things happening at The University were its move into the wine industry, its relationship with MicroElectronics Computer Technology Corporation, its ability to increase endowments and its abili- ty to raise private gifts. Walker said The University ' s in- volvement with the wine industry would not only benefit the school, " but it also could help establish a " am pleased to have the opportunity to resume a career in the health field. " whole new industry in the state of Texas. " MCC, along with the wine in- dustry, " will help broaden the economic base of the state as well as be a great advantage to The Universi- ty, " Walker added. The third most exciting develop- ment occurred during the Centennial celebration, Walker said. " I think our ability to increase the endowment for academic positions at The University of Texas at Austin can have one of the most significant influences on the quality of The University of anything that ' s happened in a long time, " Walker said. " I am pleased to have been with the Centennial celebration, " Walker said in announcing his resignation. " I ' ve enjoyed my time here and being with the growth of The University. " " We ' re sad to see Don leave his post as chancellor, " said Jon P. Newton, chairman of The University of Texas System Board of Regents. " He ' s going to be a hard man to replace. " Julie Del Barto Chancellor E. Don Walker finds it very hard to let go after his years with UT. Chancellor 135 Texas Vineyards: Grape Expectations More than a decade ago, The University of Texas System initiated a plan to utilize some 100,000 acres of West Texas land for experimentation in viticulture and enology. On this acreage, part of the 2.12 million acres of University-owned land, the Israeli drip system irriga- tion process was employed, since it was adaptable to both the quality and quantity of water available. This water was essential to the develop- ment of these lands with perennial crops, including commercial grape varieties. The results of years of experimen- tation indicated that many grape varieties could be grown and quality wine produced from them a prac- tice new to Texas. Wines with the greatest potential for success includ- ed light white wines such as chenin blanc and French colombard. In 1975, the first experimental vineyard was attempted near Van Horn, and following its success, additional vineyards were started in Bakersfield in 1976 and Fort Stockton in 1977. By 1981, The University of Texas had started its venture into the development of a commercial vineyard. The eight years of experimentation and study of the commercial feasibili- ty of growing grapes in West Texas led to a lease agreement with the Gill-Richter-Cordier Corp. for opera- tion of The University ' s vineyards and the construction of a commercial winery in West Texas. This new contractual agreement could " make up some of the in- evit able decline in revenues to The University from royalties from oil and gas leases on University lands, " said Chancellor E. Don Walker of The University of Texas Sy- stem. " It is one of the most ex- citing projects in West Texas and the pros- pects are almost un- limited in scope. " The University of Texas began experimenting with grape varieties a decade ago. The Israeli drip system is used on the experimental vineyards in Pecos County. 136 Grape Expectations inPeratxo A vineyard worker prunes the grapevines.

" We decided to invest in Texas instead of California or New Mexico because we felt the climate and the soil were conducive to quality wine production and, in ad- dition, this project presented an in- teresting challenge, " said Henri Ber- nabe, president of the 100-year-old Richter firm. " When we visited the UT Vineyards, we were impressed with the quality of the wines and the grapes, " he said. Following a meeting with Gill, Bernabe, " felt that he (Gill) had a good experience in " We decided to invest in Texas instead of California or New Mexico because we felt the climate and the soil were conducive to quality wine pro- duction and, in addition, this project presented an in- teresting challenge. " winemaking with his Llano Estacado operation, and that he was very com- mitted to the development of the wine industry in Texas. " These views were also shared by Lucian Viaud, vice president of production for Cor- dier. " I believe Texas is a good market, " Viaud said. " I was par- ticularly impress- ed by the ex- perimental vineyards and the dozen experimen- tal wines I tasted during a meeting with University officials. I was also impressed with the other partners in the project. Since there is no ex- isting tradition and methodology in place, we are able to start fresh. We are going to use some new methods and technologies for the production of quality red and white wines. " With the integra- tion of these new methods, Texas would further the land ' s development. Grape Expectation 137 Grape Expectations . Several specific factors were cited as to why West Texas was considered a favorable region for quality wine production. According to Bernabe, " The climate is dry, which inhibits the develop- ment of fungus and also permits the production of the best vinifera varieties. There is also a warm climate, which produces a high sugar content, and the cool summer nights permit slow maturation and the crea- tion of the flavors which give fruitiness and balance to the wine. " With the combined experience of 200 years in the viticulture and wine producing industry, " the corporation, though new to Texas, does have the depth and experience to produce high quality wines from the grapes grown in vineyards on University lands, " said Jon P. Newton, chairman of The University of Texas System Board of Regents, who signed the lease on June 30, 1983. The University of Texas agreed to lease the land for a period of 30 years at $1 per acre, with a renewal option and a percentage of the Gill-Richter- Cordier annual gross revenues. Beryl Buckley Milburn, chairman of the Land and Investment Commit- tee of the Board of Regents, was pleased with the signing of the lease.

The success of this venture emphasizes the need for The University to continue its plans to experiment with innovative ways to use the surface of University land. " In the culmination of these 10 years of experimentation, finalized plans were being made for the con- struction of a winery on University lands, to be completed and opera- tional by 1985, when the estimated number of acres of vineyards harvested would be increased by three times the current 1,000 acres. " We hope that will improve as the vineyards mature and as growing im- proves, " Gill said.

The 100-year-old Richter firm of Mont- pelier, France, experts in viticulture, exported plants for grape vineyards in 27 countries.

As the nation watch- ed, the third ranked Texas Longhorns dispatched the fifth rank- ed Auburn Tigers into oblivion, 20-7. The Horns had a freshman kicker, a sophomore punter, and three big question marks at quarterback. In- deed, as of the first of September, on- ly little known safety Jerry Gray had established his position on the squad. " There weren ' t too many stars at the beginning of the season, aside from Jeff (Leiding), " said All-SWC defensive end Eric Holle before the 1984 Cotton Bowl. " We didn ' t have a Johnnie Johnson or a Kenneth Sims. We went out there to make a name for ourselves, and I think we did that. " The rest is history, or destiny. The 1983 Longhorns, despite cons- tant injury, marched to an 11-0 season before fumbling away the na- tional championship, Jan. 2, 1984, at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The team produced four first team Ail- Americans: safety Jerry Gray, corner- back Mossy Cade, linebacker Jeff Leiding and offensive guard Doug Dawson. Walk-on freshman kicker Jeff Ward placed third team Ail- American, and sophomore punter John Teltschik and two other defenders, Tony Degrate and Fred Acorn, earned honorable mentions for their seasons. At the final awards banquet in February, linebacker Mark Lang would win the Most Tenacious Award, Dawson would receive the team Sportsmanship Award, and Gray, the squad ' s Most Valuable Player. In all, the team that thrashed Auburn was a team of undeniable talent and will. They easily dismissed NTSU, Rice, Oklahoma, and then peaked with a 31-3 hog slaughter in Fayetteville, Ark. At 5-0, Texas was the premier team in the nation, and once again, the promise of a national championship had returned to Austin. Though injuries and quarterbacks would have their say in the latter half of the season, the Horns of ' 83 marked their relentless climb toward the Cotton Bowl and destiny with the class and style, staying close to perfect until the end. And SWC Title TEXAS AUBURN 20 7 Fred Akers is the SWC ' s winningest coach. " I don ' t know if we put ' em in shock or if they didn ' t know what to expect, or what, " said coach Fred Akers after the Longhorns ' 20-7 vic- tory over Auburn, Sept. 17. In addition to a television audience, 73,500 fans at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala., watched as the Texas offensive and defensive lines dominated play the entire game to claim their No. 1 ranking. " I couldn ' t be more pleased with the way our football team looks at this point, " said Akers. " We had a very fine first game against a quality opponent. The ball handling and kicking game, which are usually suspect in a first ball game, were ex- cellent. If we can achieve normal im- provement, we can be a pretty tough outfit. " The Horns held the Tigers to play two first downs and 51 yards while amassing 11 first downs themselves, 264 total yards and a 20-0 half time lead. " The first half was an embar- | rassment, " said Auburn Coach Pat 1 Dye. " We weren ' t ready to play. I rj i don ' t know if we were scared or | what. " Special teams played an important role in the game. Jitter Fields return- ed three punts for a total of 97 yards. Rob Moerschell wasted no time in taking the Longhorns ' second possession 84 yards to paydirt. " That drive gave me all the confidence in the world, " Moerschell said. Akers alternated Moerschell and Rick Mclvor every two possessions. In the second quarter, Mclvor completed an 80-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Epps out of a quarter- back scramble. " That play was great for a guy with his kind of speed, " said Mclvor. " He didn ' t even make his break in the pattern until he was 25-30 yards downfield. " Texas scoring was complemented by 31- and 37-yard field goals by freshman Jeff Ward. Auburn was able to score late in the fourth quarter on a Bo Jackson 2-yard run. Steve Weed Football 143 Season of Promise The win was the Longhorns ' 80th opening victory in 90 seasons.

Reuben Galceran " We just weren ' t mentally prepared for this game, " said Texas Ail-American offensive guard Doug Dawson, referring to the inconsistent first half play of the second-ranked Longhorns in their home opener against North Texas State, Sept. 24.

" We were just flat to begin with, " said starting quarter- back Rob Moerschell. " Just when we ' d finally do something right, we ' d get a flag and have to go twice as far. " In all, 45 flags were thrown, resulting in a total of 256 penalty yards, with 13 of the accepted calls going against Texas. Patience and depth turned out to be the keys to UT ' s 25th straight non-conference win in Memorial Stadium. " In the second half, we decided this was our field, and we were going to start acting like it, " said running back Mike Luck, who scored the go-ahead touchdown on a two-yard run. The offense took the first four possessions of the second half down the field for scores, tallying 24 points, while the defense held NTSU to four first downs and -24 yards rushing. " It was nothing fancy, just three yards in a cloud of dust, " Luck said. " But that ' s our kind of game. " Steve Weed TEXAS RICE 42 6 Fullback John Walker nails over Rice defenders for a first down in Texas ' SWC opener. " I was sorry we lost the shutout, " said Texas head coach Fred Akers, " because the defense deserved it. We kept pressure on them all night. " The pressure, however, was enough to give the Horns a 42-6 victory over the Rice Owls, Oct. 1, at Memorial Stadium. The game, featured as the closing event of the University ' s day-long Centennial Showcase and Exposition, drew over 70,000. The game opened the Longhorns ' Southwest Conference schedule. The Longhorn defense, ranked first in the nation, continued its dominating ways. They held the Owls to only 149 yards, while the Horns offense gained 408. " This was our best game as a whole, " said Texas defensive tackle John Haines, who teamed up with tackle Tony Degrate for 19 tackles. The defense held Rice to 52 yards rushing, intercepted three Owl passes, sacked the quarterback seven times and held the Owls scoreless un- til Kerry Overton completed a five- yard touchdown pass with 23 seconds remaining in the game. " They knew we had to throw, " said Rice coach Ray Alborn, " and they just pinned their ears back and came after us. " Alborn resigned two weeks after the Texas game. Offensively, the Horns executed well, hitting pay dirt with three touchdown passes. A 52-yard bomb from Rob Moerschell to flanker Brent Duhon with 1:31 left in the half gave Texas a 21-0 lead. The return of quarterback Todd Dodge, who suffered a shoulder separation three weeks earlier, was highlighted by a nine-yard fourth quarter touchdown completion to Russell Hayes. Texas also hit the goal line with three touchdowns on the ground, in- cluding a 76-yard scoring run by freshman tailback Edwin Simmons. " We knew we couldn ' t stand with them toe-to-toe and slug it out, " said Alborn. " We gave them great field position early in the game, and you just can ' t do that to a great football team. They have a great defense, but that ' s not any great observation. " Reuben Galceran Football - 145 Football I Third Quarter Magic Offense Ignites to 28-16 Rout As Defense Halts Dupree In A.TlTilJiQ,l TEXAS OU For the 78th year, the states of Texas and Oklahoma focus- ed their eyes on the city of Dallas for the annual shootout bet- ween the University of Texas and the of Oklahoma. The Michael Buchannan catches Marcus Dupree. University weekend of Oct. 8 became more than a date for a football game state pride was at stake. Amid the State Fair, amid the Friday night parties and amid the annual walk down Commerce Street, the two schools declared war and the battlefield was a stadium with 76,000 witnesses at hand. And, for the fifth time in seven years, the second-ranked Longhorns upended the lOth-ranked Sooners 28-16 at the Cotton Bowl. " This was probably our most balanced win against Oklahoma since I have been at Texas, " said Longhorn coach Fred Akers. " We played fine defense, fine offense and our kicking game kept them a long, long way from our goal line. " The Longhorns once again had to rely on the nation ' s top-ranked defense to contr ol the tempo of the game until the offense got on track. The Horns held an explosive OU offense to 197 yards total and only two second half first downs. OU tailback sensation Marcus Dupree, who ran over the Texas defense in the 1981 game, was held to only 50 yards on 14 carries. " We just shut him (Dupree) down, " said Texas linebacker Jeff Leiding. " There was nowhere to go. He got outside one time and got 12 yards and he still got hit hard. " " We feel we can stop any running game, any passing game, " said Horn Mossy Cade who intercepted a third quarter Sooner pass. " I think we have the best defense in the country. We ' ve stopped Bo Jackson (Auburn) and now Marcus Dupree. " After the first half and four fumbles, three by Texas, the score was tied at 7-7. OU drew first blood in the opening quarter on an eight yard touchdown pass after recovering an Edwin Simmons fumble in Longhorn territory. Texas tied up the score on second quarter touchdown run by Simmons. " The hitting was fierce, " said Akers. " If we ' d been able to hit the ball with some of our tackles, we ' d have had some (fumbles), too. " " We felt in real good shape at the half, " said Texas offensive guard Doug Dawson. " We knew when we stopped making mistakes, we ' d be in good shape. It was a matter of time. " After a John Walker fumble, OU took the lead on a 28-yard field goal two minutes into the third quarter. Texas then came to life as the offense rolled over the OU defense for 21 third quarter points and finished the day with 335 total yards. " At halftime, we got ourselves together, " said Longhorn quarter- JD back Rob Moerschell. " A lot of credit | goes to the offensive line. We moved | the ball fairly well when we had it. " The turning point came on a third-and-one situation for Texas, then behind 10-7. Moerschell uncorke d a 32-yard one- handed completion to tailback Mike Luck. The pass set up a Ronnie Robinson two-yard touchdown run and put the Longhorns out in front of the Sooners for good. " It was a great call, " OU tackle Rick Bryan said. " I was looking for a quarterback sneak or the tailback. I sure didn ' t expect that. " " There were two or three plays that made a difference, " said Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer. " Their guy makes a one-handed grab of a pass on a third down and then Buster (Rhymes) tips a pass they intercept. If Buster caught the ball, he might have gone 80 yards. You never know. " Freshman tailback Simmons, who added the big play threat to the Texas offense, completed the game with 100 yards rushing on 14 carries and two touchdowns, including a 67-yarder which capped the Horns scoring. It was Sim- mons second straight 100-yard performance making him Texas ' leading rusher with 260 yards. " He (Simmons) gives them an extra dimension in the running game that they haven ' t had in a few years, " said Switzer. " He ' s going to be a great player. " Texas beat its fourth opponent and set sights on the Ozarks and the showdown with SMU for two key SWC games. Reuben Galceran Football 147 Season of Promise The Arkansas Razorbacks were for- mally introduced to the Texas big play offense, the nation ' s top defensive unit and the spectacular TEXAS 31 ARK. 3 Longhorn kicking game on Oct. 15, in front of 54,882 fans at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Ark. " You have to give Texas credit, " said the Hogs ' head coach, Lou Holtz, about the 31-3 defeat, the worst of his career at Arkansas to the Horns. " We had to come up with the big play to have a chance to beat Texas. We had six drives of 50 yards without getting any points. We never made the big play, and Texas did. " The second-ranked Longhorns turned in five big plays, four offen- sively for 40 yards or more. Two long touchdown passes to wide receiver Brent Duhon, a 56-yard reception by wide receiver Bill Boy Bryant and a 54 -yard touchdown scamper by of- fensive MVP Mike Luck provided the Longhorns with most of their season-high 430 total yards for the game. The defensive effort was " This was something special for us. We were playing this one for a little man who meant more to all of us than anybody will ever know, " said Texas defensive end Eric Holle of UT facilities supervisor Glen Swenson, who was killed in an automobile accident Thursday, Oct. 13. highlighted by a crucial third down in- terception deep in Razorback ter- ritory by cornerback Mossy Cade. The Texas defense held the Hogs to a miserable 132 yards rushing and a feeble 121 passing, as well as making an incredible goal line stand late in the game. " Texas is everything people said they were, " Arkansas wide receiver Mark Mistier said. Punter John Teltschik boomed eight punts for a total of 397 yards, in- cluding a career-long 67-yarder. Duhon ' s 54-yard touchdown catch was also the best of his career. " It ' s not like me to score a lot of touch- downs, " Duhon said. " I am glad to see it finally happen, and I hope there ' ll be a few more. " Steve Weed TEXAS SMU " This was an ab- solute street fight, " said Texas coach Fred Akers of his Longhorns ' 15-12 win over SWC runner-up Southern Methodist University, Oct. 22. The victory all but assured the Horns of a SWC Championship. In a contest billed as " The Game for the Cotton, " both teams found trouble handling the ball. Ten tur- novers were committed, with six by Texas. The turnovers and outstan- ding defensive efforts by both teams led to a 6-6 deadlock through three quarters. Texas ' Jeff Ward kicked field goals of 52 and 45 yards to I John Teltschik displayed fine kicking form by averaging 43.7 yards during the season. 148 Football place the Longhorns in position to break the Mustangs ' 21 -game winning streak. " We moved the ball well but we turned it over far too many times, " said Akere. " I ' ve never been around a game where we gave that many oppor- tunities to a good football team and still won, and SMU is a good football team. The win is due primarily to a super defensive effort. " Todd Dodge, who replaced quarter- back Rob Moerschell late in the third quarter, sparked a 62-yard, 12-play touchdown drive that culminated in a seven yard TD pass to Bill Boy Bryant, putting Texas up 13-6 with just under seven minutes to play. The Mustangs added their own drive late in the quarter. The score Mike Luck gained 85 yards on 17 attempts. stood at 13-12, with SMU setting up for a two-point conversion which would have put the Mustangs in the lead with 2:47 left in the game. When SMU quarterback Lance Mcllhenny took the snap, Longhorn destiny intervened. Richard Peavy, defensive back, and linebacker Mark Lang forced Mcllhenny outside, where his pass attempt to Reggie Dupard was batted down by UT defender Jerry Gray. " We went out there to win the ball game, not tie. Those were the three toughest yards in football against the best defense in the country, " said Bobby Collins, SMU coach. After a John Teltschik punt, SMU set up for the final drive from their own five-yard line. Ed Williams and Tony Degrate sack SMU quarterback Lance Mcllhenny for a safety which gave Texas the upper hand to be the Cotton Bowl hosts. Football 149 Season of Promise TEXAS TECH But the Mustangs who pulled out many late second half wins came up short as Mcllhenny was sacked by Texas ' Ed Williams for a safety. " The defense sort of put the icing on the cake, " said defensive tackle John Haines. " We ' ve kept this team together, and I think it was just fit- ting that the defense came up with the big play. " Reuben Galceran and Steve Weed For the second consecutive week, Texas had to rely on the backup quarter- back to spark the Longhorn offense to a 20-3 victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders at Memorial Stadium, Oct. 29, 1983. The victory left the Horns in sole possession of first place in the race for the Cotton, with a 7-0 record. " We got in the dressing room at halftime and knew we needed an 180-degree turn to come all the way back, " said quarterback Todd Dodge. After a sluggish first half and a 3-0 Red Raider lead, the Texas defense, with the support of 75,401 fans, came to life and shut down Tech ' s offense to only 54 yards in the second half. Texas coach Fred Akers sent in Dodge on the Horns ' first possession of the second half. Dodge led the Horns to an 11-play, 73-yard touchdown drive capped by a two- yard John Walker dive. " Early in the game, Tech was play- ing like they wanted it more than we did, " said Akers. " But we kept get- ting stronger and stronger. " In a first half that saw a lone Texas Tech field goal, the Texas defense tried to stop the Raider running game, which piled up over 100 yards before halftime. After Kelvin Epps fumbled the first kickoff of the second half on the Horn 18, the Texas defense shut down Tech and refused them a 45- yard field goal. The Horns, behind Dodge, put 20 points on the board while racking up 414 yards in total of- fense. Besides Walker ' s dive, two field goals from Freshman Jeff Ward Bill Boy Bryant finds no room to run as he catches a third down pass for a crucial first down. ' Anthony Byerly waltzes through Texas Tech defenders for a short gain late in the fourth quarter. 150 Football cram! fe:. - and a 12-yard bootleg from Dodge rounded out the scoring. Senior runn- ing back Mike Luck ran for 116 yards on 21 carries for his first 100-plus game as a Longhorn. " We were a little sluggish at the start, and Texas Tech was competing very hard, " said Akers. " It is good to get that behind us and out of our system. " Reuben Galceran TEXAS HOUSTON " This was the big- gest defensive game we ' ve had, " said Texas Coach Fred Akers of the Longhorns ' 9-3 con- ference win over the Houston Cougars, Nov. 5, in the Astrodome. Led by Texas standouts cornerback Mossy Cade and weak safety Jerry Gray, the No. 1 Horn defense held the Cougars ' league leading offense to just 209 yards while forcing four turnovers. Cade ' s interception return of 56 yards in the first quarter set up the first of kicker Jeff Ward ' s three field goals. His longest of the day, a 51- yarder, set the collegiate record for distance in the Dome. " Jeff Ward is our candidate for freshman of the year, " Akers said of his kicker. " I guess I ' m a veteran freshman now, if there is such a thing, " Ward said. " I ' ve been to all the places you could ever want to go - - Auburn, Arkansas, Dallas. Pressure? Hey, these games are fun. " The Longhorn offense, however against fired up defensive play - kept the game precariously close. Starting quarterback Todd Dodge completed only two of seven passes while throwing three interceptions, as the offense sputtered for only 98 yards, the lowest total in Akers ' seven seasons at the University. The offen- sive problems were compounded when All-American guard Doug Dawson went down with a severe ankle sprain, and running back Mike Luck was diagnosed as having a frac- tured ankle. " There were two good defenses out there, and they both played their hearts out. They stopped almost everything we tried, " Akers said. " We are getting used to teams playing like that against us. " Steve Weed Jerry Gray and Mossy Cade, first team All-Americans, break up a potential TD in the 4th quarter. Football 151 Season of Promise TEXAS TCU 20 14 The Longhorns hosted the TCU Horned Frogs to an afternoon of sensa- tional defense and give-away offense Nov. 12 at Memorial Stadium. The Texas defense improved its record to 9-0, as it once again overcame its Jekyll and Hyde offense, which not only was responsible for the Longhorns ' 20 points, but also spotted the Frogs 14 points in the second quarter. " We were a little frustrated at halftime, knowing we held them to 20 yards and one first down, " said UT defensive tackle Tony Degrate. " We feel like we (the defense) can score 10, 13 points. We ' re not cocky. It ' s just that our confidence is unreal. We got our first shutout of the year to- day, but no one will know it. " After a first half of playing musical chairs with quarterbacks Todd Dodge, Rob Moerschell and Rick Mclvor, Akers started Moerschell in the third quarter. With the defense providing four consecutive posses- sions in TCU territory, Moerschell sparked 17 unanswered points, featuring a 40 yard touchdown sprint by fullback Ronnie Robinson. In all, the Texas defense held the Horned Frogs to an ineffectual 133 yards and only eight first downs. " It seems like everybody plays us tough, " said Degrate, who led the team with eight tackles. " Like I always said, it ' s always better to beat someone when they ' re at their best, and I think TCU was at their best. " Steve Weed " This one gave us a lot of confidence, " starting quarterback Rob Moerschell said of the Longhorns 24-21 " great escape " against the Baylor Bears. " This was, " Longhorn left guard Kirk McJunkin said, " the finest that our offensive line has played since the Oklahoma game. " In fact, the of- fensive line played so well that TEXAS BAYLOR Texas ' s Ronnie Robinson rushed for a career-high 120 yards on 19 at- tempts, including a 69-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Once again, for the fourth game of the last five, the Longhorn defense had to pull out the victory. With the Horns leading 24-7 midway through the final quarter, Texas fullback Terry Orr fumbled on the Bear 15, and Baylor promptly marched 85 yards in 16 plays to make the score 24-13. After an onside kick recovery, the Bears scored again, and with just 2:14 left to play, the score stood at a perilously close 24-21. Then, with only 57 seconds remain- ing, after the Longhorn offense Jeff Ward, third team All-American, led all Texas scorers for the regular season with 76 points. 152 Football ii 85 - :e pulled a " one-two-three-kick " punt routine, the Bears had the ball and the makings of an upset firmly within their grasp. But Texas cornerback Mossy Cade intercepted Baylor deep in Horn territory to preserve Texas ' s undefeated record, and the fifth " great escape " of the year. " I ' m just glad the clock ran out when it did, " said UT linebacker Jeff Leiding. " It all boils down to we ' re in the Cotton Bowl. I ' m ready to go spend a month at the Hyatt and relax. " Steve Weed " This was our most complete game of the season, " said UT defensive tackle Tony Degrate, " but we were like a star- ting car. You have to get it warmed up at we did, our offense TEXAS A M first, but once started rolling. " No. 2 Texas rolled to 45-13 vic- tory over the Aggies before a crowd of 76,751 at Kyle Field and a national TV audience on Nov. 26, 1983. The Horns once again found themselves at the short end of the score in the second quarter. The Ag- gies, managed a 28-yard touchdown run and field goals of 37 and 46 yards before Texas ' onslaught. With the return of Doug Dawson in the second quarter, but since an in- jury in the Houston game, and the passing of Rick Mclvor, Texas found the offensive punch lacking in the last four games. Mclvor took to the air, and passed for four touchdowns and 170 yards. Mclvor passed to Bill Boy Bryant for a 12-yard TD and Texas ' first score of the game. The touchdown was set up after a busted Longhorn field goal attempt was saved by Rob Moershell, who threw a sidearm pass to up-back Terry Orr for a first down on the Aggie 12-yard line. In that situation, Moerschell said, " We got the momentum in our favor. " The momentum helped the Longhorns score on a 13-yard pass from Mclvor to Brent Duhon before the half for a 14-13 lead. The Horns continued their dominance by blocking an Aggie punt and scoring on the next play --a one-yard dive by John Walker. TD passes from Mclvor to Kelvin Epps of 38 and 60 yards, and a Bryant to Duhon 41 -yard touchdown hookup, set a new school record of five TD passes in one game. Jeff Ward added a 31 -yard kick to his string of 13 con- secutive field goals. The offense piled up a season-high 445 total yards, while the leading defense in the na- tion held the Aggies to only 98 yards in the second half. " (The Aggies) were two miles out of the comfort zone in the first half, " said Jeff Leiding. " It was just a mat- ter of time before they came down to earth and before we settled down. " Reuben Galceran Brent Duhon, Texas ' s leading pass receiver, catches a TD pass on a reverse from wide receiver Bill Boy Bryant. Football 163 154 Footba Almost Perfect COTTON BOWL So Close, And Yet So Far TEXAS GEORGIA 9 10 " We dominated the whole game, " said Texas linebacker Jeff Leiding. " Then tragedy strikes. They might as well have dropped a nuclear warhead. " For Texas, the defeat in the Cotton Bowl was a nightmare that was avoid- ed all season long on the road to an 11-0 record. The seventh-ranked Georgia Bulldogs handed the Longhorns their first loss and dashed Texas ' hopes for a shot at the na- tional championship. The 10-9 score reflected the defensive game that the 67,891 fans and a national television audience expected from two of the nation ' s top defensive teams. Despite being inside Geor gia ' s 35- yard line seven times, Texas ' offense, led by surprise starter Rick Mclvor, came away with only nine points on field goals of 22, 40 and 27 yards by Jeff Ward. " There ' s really no one person you can blame it on, " said Mclvor. " We had our chances to win, and didn ' t. " For 57 minutes, the Texas defense once again carried the load of the Longhorns ' battle. The nation ' s No. 1 defense held Georgia to 215 yards, three points and forced nine Bulldog punts. " We always thought we could stop anybody, anytime, in any situa- tion, " said Leiding, named the Most Valuable Defensive player. " We did. So they punted, and that killed us. " With 4:32 left, the Horns ' Craig Curry mishandled the punt and Georgia wound up on the Texas 23- yard line. Three plays later, Georgia found themselves in the lead, 10-9, on a 17 -yard touchdown by Bulldog quarterback John Lastinger. All Texas hope rested on one last of fensive series. But the offense could not put a drive together, and Georgia won the Cotton Bowl trophy. " Do I think we are clearly a better team than Georgia? " said Coach Fred Akers. " Yes, but Georgia stood in there and found a way to win. We didn ' t lose it: they won it. " Texas ended the season 11-1 and ranked fifth in the country. For 31 seniors, the Cotton Bowl was their last try for that golden ring. " All season long we ' d been playing a pressure-cooker situation, " said Tony Degrate. " I guess the pressure cooker finally exploded. The sad part is that no one will remember the 11 games we won. " Reuben Galceran Mark l-angand Ray Woodard make sure the Georgia offense is temporarily stalled as Horn Mossy Cade looks to add assistance, if needed. Football 155 The Texas Fanatics CHEERLEADERS fa nat ic adj. unreasonably enthusiastic; overly zealous - - n. a person whose extreme zeal, piety, etc. goes beyond what is reasonable. This one word described 26 in- dividuals who spent endless hours perfecting jumps, tumbles and part- ner stunts. This one word described five men who sacrificed their bodies spelling out TEXAS followed by backflips after each letter. Who would put themselves through that to inspire spirit? Spelling out " Texas " was only one of the traditions of the Texas cheerleaders. Usually, there were five couples who represented each letter in Texas, but beginning in 1983, there was a break in tradition. Ronald Brown, Vice President for Student Affairs, increased the membership by six, stating that, " The University is committed to affirmative action, and it is important that a group such as the cheerleaders reflect the Univer- sity ' s cultural diversity. " Brown also appointed Patrick Goudeau as the first assistant adviser coach the squad has had. Other traditions, however, remain- ed the same. " The March Gran- diosa, " the " Wabash Cannon Ball " and the crowd pleaser, " Texas Fight, " still cheered the crowds on. One of the biggest and most noticeable traditions of the football cheerleaders was riding into home games on a renovated ' 31 Chevy. Deanna Gilliam, communications senior, said, " The minute that you hear the beeping of the horn, you can just hear the uproar . . . you can hear 7 .T LJB Scott Ragsdill and Cara Garner drum up spirit.

" Prior to the first kickoff, the foot- ball cheerleaders attended camp at the University of Tennessee where they won top honors. They brought home a first place trophy for a choreographed partner stunt routine and were runners-up in the Award of Excellence competition. Scott Cole, co-head cheerleader, said, " It ' s hard to stay so spirited all the time when you ' re working so hard physically. Therefore, by doing so well in both competition and spirit, we had a very successful year at camp. " Stacey Beasley, co-head cheerleader, said, " On the field, it ' s a very good feeling, knowing that you ' re part of such a prestigious university. Trying to get all of those people to yell is a challenge. " Not only were the cheerleaders present at football games and rallies, but they also cheered at volleyball and basketball games.

Spikers Net 33-8 Record, SWC Championship " Volleyball is one of the most perfect of all games, " said Mick Haley, UT women ' s volleyball coach, " because you u sually don ' t win a point the other team loses one. It ' s a game of errors. You can only score when you serve, so if you can execute perfectly and the other team executes perfectly, then they get the ball back and you haven ' t lost a point. " Playing their " perfect " game, the Longhorns finished with a 33-8 record, led by setter Lisa Denker, SWC player of the year. Haley was named Coach of the Year for the se- cond straight year. The Longhorn ' s schedule included 15 of the top 20 teams in the nation. " To measure success in this sport, " Haley said at the beginning of the season, " you have to beat the Califor- nia schools. " At the Spartan Shops Invitational tournament at San Jose State on Sept. 22, 1983, the Horns did just that. They defeated San Diego State, Cal-Santa Barbara, and Cal-Poly-San Luis Obispo, only to receive a second place finish after los- ing to No. 3 Stanford. Because volleyball is a game of er- rors, teams competed in tournament play to gain experience, confidence and consistency. The Longhorns had a total of eight tournaments, four of which were at home. The team launched its season with a second place finish in the Longhorn Invitational at Gregory Gym Sept. 9-10. With easy wins over Wisconsin, UT-Arlington and Southwest Missouri State, the Horns went down in the final round at the hands of Northwestern. The Horns still could not get it quite right as they were upset by New Mexico in the finals of the Texas Centennial volleyball tournament Oct. 1. Texas took second for the third time, finishing the tournament at 3-1, including a victory over Southwest Conference opponent Rice. " We ' re getting pretty good at getting second place, " Haley said. " But I ' m getting pretty tired of it. " Middle blocker Kim Larson was the only all-tournament team selection for the Horns. Other outstanding Longhorns were outside attacker Diane Watson and Laura Neugebauer. Watson had 14 kills - another word for a spike and 10 saves, while Neugebauer collected 16 kills in the opening games. The first tournament victory for the Horns came at the LSU-Aspri volleyball showcase in Baton Rouge on Oct. 7. The team won five con- secutive games, including a win over rival Texas A M.

Volleyball -159 Game Of Errors Texas also defeated Penn State, Il- linois, Tennessee and host LSU to win the title. The Horns were led by the play of Larson and Sharon Neugebauer with 16 and 15 kills respectively. Larson was named MVP of the tournament. Neugebauer and Denker were named to the all- tournament team. The Longhorns ended the tourney with six players accumulating 25 kills or more. " They finally found out how to win a tournament at home, " said Donna Lopiano, director of UT Women ' s Athletics, as she presented the first place trophy to the team. The Longhorns defeated the University of Tennessee to win the Longhorn- Converse Invitational at Gregory Gym, Oct. 15-16. Larson led the Horns with 12 kills. " We played real- ly well as a team, " said Larson, who also had six blocks. Neugebauer had 12 kills and seven blocks. In volleyball, there are no points scored without the serve. Haley used the strategy of the serve to win the Horns ' first match with the Baylor Bears Oct. 17- Haley started the youngest lineup of the season, in- cluding freshmen Watson, Eva Mur- ray, Anna Marie DeYbarrondo and Jackie Cambell. The rookies pulled the team through as the Longhorns collected 13 service aces. On Oct. 19 in Gregory Gym, the Longhorns committed 30 errors. Houston, however, had more errors and the Horns prevailed in three games. " If we hadn ' t made any er- rors, " Haley said, " I wouldn ' t have expected Houston to score a point. " The win upped their record to 20-3 and helped them achieve their final Southwest Conference record of 10-0. Texas remained undefeated in con- ference play by beating Rice Oct. 24, Texas Tech on Oct. 26 and Nov. 9, Houston Nov. 2 and Baylor Nov. 14. The Halloween Classic, a tourna- ment held Oct. 28-29 at Gregory Gym, posted the third tournament victory for the Longhorns. Texas blasted LSU, 15-10, 15-3, 15-6 to win the championship. San Diego State also dropped games to the Horns. Texas was led by Larson and Sharon Neugebauer in the win over LSU, with six and seven kills respectively. As for the UCLA National Invita- tional tournament, " We just played badly, " Haley said. The Horns defeated Pepperdine, but fell in mat- ches with UCLA, Brigham Young and Oregon. " The Oregon match was the worst we ' ve played since our loss to New Mexico (Oct. 1), " Haley added. The next assignment for the Horns was the conference championship game with Texas A M on Nov. 16, 1983. Texas clinched its second straight SWC Championship with a 15-8, 15-12 sweep in College Station. The victory gave the Horns a perfect Anna Maria De Ybarrondo and Jo Beth Palmer exhibit superb defense as U T did in SWC play.

With the win, the Horns reached the South Regional semi-final game with Kentucky. The Horns lost to the Wildcats and ended the season ranked No. 7. A high point for the Horns was Denker who received honorable mention All American honors. The Longhorns achieved all the goals they went after with the excep- tion of the Final Four of the NCAA a goal sought by many.

California Dreamin ' at UT " I wish they all could be California girls " - so goes the Beach Boys classic lyric. And likewise, so went the dreams of most volleyball fans at UT. Freshman Diane Watson was one of four transplanted Californians who enhanced Mick Haley ' s second SWC championship team. Watson chose UT because the people were so friendly. But that was not all. " The players were more my style, " Watson said. " We support each other and have respect for one another. " Watson broke into the starting lineup during the San Jose State In- vitational. " She earned her starting spot, " said Haley. This was the first time that Watson had been able to Diane Watson goes up for the block. play in front of her family as a Longhorn. " I was still proving myself to my team and coach, " she said, " and I was determined to do it in this tournament. " Watson shined throughout the season and her efforts earned her the Newcomer of the Year award. Watson said the difference bet- ween California ' s and Texas ' pro- grams was that in California, volleyball drew a lot more attention. Texans did not have the same oppor- tunities to gain early experience in volleyball. " Experience plays a big role in volleyball, " Watson said, " and that might have got my foot in the door here at UT. " Pat Vires Volleyball -161 Keeping In Stride MEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY " We had an excellent season, " said coach James Blackwood of the UT men ' s cross country team and its se- cond place finish in the Southwest Conference. " I think the highlight this Fall was finishing so close to Arkansas, " he said, referring to the SWC Championship meet. " Nobody has done that in years. " The 1983 team combined leader- ship and talent with depth and youth to breeze to an undefeated season. Despite not finishing first, the team ' s close run for the SWC title qualified it for the NCAA national champion- ship meet at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. Led by senior All-American Sam Sitonik and freshman Joseph Chelelgo, UT ' s harrier squad over- came adversity, inexperience and graduation to race to a 21st place NCAA finish and national recogni- tion for a budding program. Throughout the season, varsity Longhorn runners Sitonik and Chelelgo placed first and second, backed by freshman Patrick Sang, sophomore Andy Trickett, senior John Helmick, freshman Jerry Wallace and junior Dan Bell. At the first meet of the season, the Baylor Invitational in Waco, the Horns had to do without Sitonik, who was recovering from an attack by a swarm of bees. Chelelgo placed first with a time of 24:59 on the 10,000 meter course. Texas won the meet by 19 points over Texas A M. Two weeks later, at the Sooner In- vitational at Norman, Okla., Texas took five of the top 10 places to finish first out of the seven teams. On Oct. 20, the Longhorns, heavy favorites of the 12-team field, hosted the Texas Invitational at the Georgetown Golf Course. On their home site, Texas blasted the second place team from Lamar by 50 points. Chelelgo took medalist honors, just 4 seconds ahead of Sitonik. The Southwest Conference Cham- pionship meet was held in Houston, Oct. 31, on a rain-soaked Buffalo Bayou course. Sitonik, the defending champion, set the pace throughout the race, but finished second behind Arkansas ' Tom Moloney after a tough sprint in the last 100 yards. The top four UT runners Sitonik, Chelelgo, Sang, and Trickett earn- ed All-SWC honors. " I thought we ' d have five in the top 10, " Blackwood said after the meet. " Four kids ran excellently. Of course, you have to have five clicking. " The Arkansas win was the 10th consecutive title for the Hogs, but the 13 point difference was an even greater lift for the Longhorns. " We ' re definitely closing the gap on them, " Blackwood said. At the Nov. 12 NCAA District VI qualifying meet, hosted again at Georgetown, the Texas runners had another shot at the Razorbacks. Sitonik captured his first win of the season. Arkansas won the meet, with the Horns placing a close second. A final push puts Patrick Sang across the finish line at the Texas Invitational cross country meet. 162 Men ' s Cross Country The nation ' s top 22 cross country teams gathered at Lehigh University, Nov. 21, to run for the national cham- pionship. In the end, UT-E1 Paso won the meet, Arkansas finished fifth, and although Texas placed 21st, Sitonik finished 19th overall with a time of 30:22.1, qualifying him as an Ail-American by finishing in the top twenty. " Just getting there was a big thrill, " said Trickett. " You work all season for it, and the fact that we made it makes it all worthwhile, " he said. The 1983 team boasted three freshmen, a sophomore, a junior and seniors Helmick and Sitonik. " We had a young team this year, balanced by the two older guys, " Trickett said. " I think that that ' s the best indication for next year. " Steve Weed Seniors Sam Sitonik and John Helmick practice on the grassy hills of the Hancock Golf Course. FIRST ROW: Brian Wiltshire Sharp.

Men ' s Cross Country 163 Setting The Pace WOMEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY " We can always depend on (Tara) Arnold winning the meet or placing first for the team, " Terry Anderson Jordan, assistant coach, said. " But the rest of the girls ' lineup always changes. Any one of these girls is capable of winning a meet that ' s how competitive they are. " The Texas women ' s cross country team thrived on competition. For the second straight year, senior Lori Nelson advanced to the cross country nationals. Her third-place finish at the NCAA District 6 cross country meet in Georgetown sent her to the nationals in Lehigh, Pa. Texas had four competitors in the top 20. This was the last confrontation between Texas and arch-rival Houston, in which Houston came out the victor because of Houston ' s one- two finishes. Arnold, the SWC cham- pion, led for much of the 5,000 meter race, but faltered toward the end and finished seventh. Arnold was struggl- ing with a hamstring problem. Tara Arnold pushes for first in the 5,000. -J - ' - Lori Nelson leads before taking a third place finish at the NCAA District 6 cross country meet. 164 Women ' s Cross Country " Houston ' s experienced runners made the difference in the meet, " UT coach Phil Delavan said. " We ' ve beaten Houston three times out of five this year. They just beat us twice, but they beat us in the two most im- portant meets. " Nelson was the lone Longhorn run- ner to qualify for the NCAA National Championships. " The weather was great and the course was great, " said Nelson, adding that she enjoyed run- ning the course, but did not enjoy coming in 83rd place. The women opened their season in a dual meet against Abilene Christian University in Georgetown, Sept. 17, 1983. The traditional meet for that date was the Texas A M Invita- tional. In the wake of the Longhorns ' four straight wins since 1979, however, A M opted not to invite them back. The ACU meet marked the initia- tion of freshman runners into college competition. Cindy Tolle led the freshmen with a second place finish. Other freshmen Karole Painter and Jennifer Naffziger also finished in the top 10. Nelson won the 5,000 meter race. On Sept. 24, Texas won the Rice Invitational, sweeping the top five positions to beat arch rival Houston. Arnold, who had to sit out the first meet with an ankle injury, took the top spot. The Longhorns then headed for Florida to compete in what would be their toughest competition all year. On Oct. 1, Texas knocked heads with three of the powerhouses in women ' s cross country Tennessee, Florida and Florida State. Tennessee took the meet with 23 points. Texas finish- ed third with 63 points. The Texas squad, with five freshman runners, was the youngest squad competing. " The lack of con- fidence, " said Jordan, " and the fact that everybody else had more ex- perienced runners s howed in our freshman runners. " Texas ' s highest- placing runner was Arnold, who finished fifth with 15:43.3, her per- sonal best in the 5,000 meter run. On Oct. 22, the Longhorns came back to Austin to compete in their own Invitational. The women were stunned by UT-E1 Paso even though Arnold took first. Houston beat Texas on Oct. 31 at the SWC Championships, making it two years since the Longhorns had won the SWC title in cross country. Arnold won her fourth individual crown, but Houston placed more athletes in the top 10 to run away with the title. Irma Ledesma FIRST ROW: Sally Chappell, Jennifer Joan Naffziger, Annie Schweitzer.

Women ' s Cross Country 166 Always Up To Par MEN ' S GOLF With three veterans returning from the squad which finished second in last year ' s NCAA championship, the Longhorns had high hopes of a pr0- mising year. First-team All-America senior Brandel Chamblee, from Irving, and second-team All-America senior Paul Thomas, from Manchester, England, were Texas ' s top veterans. Other returning players were senior Gary Webb, juniors Ronnie McDougal, Sam Susser and Steen Tinning, and sophomores Paul Earnest and War- ren Renfrew. Two junior college transfers, sophomore Mike Board and junior Petey Petri, along with two freshmen, Kyle Coody and Todd Franks, were the talented new additions to the team. The fall tournaments were used as a testing ground for the younger players. " The fall season is to us a lot like what spring training is to foot- ball, " said coach Jim Clayton. " Of;! course, we would like to win, but mostly we are wanting to give some of the young guys a chance to prove themselves and get some competitive i experience. " In September 1983 the men took third place in their first tournament of the year, the Southwest Con-|| ference Commissioner ' s Cup in Houston. Senior Ail-American Brandel Chamblee, Texas ' number one player in ' 84, enjoys a laugh with a golf supporter after a sudden death playoff loss. 166 Men ' s Golf Using mostly newcomers, the Horns finished eighth in the 54-hole Butler National Intercollegiate Tour- nament and the Louisiana State tournament. In November, the ' Horns hosted the Harvey Penick Tournament at the Morris Williams golf course. After two days of ideal playing condi- tions, the team was in second place, but the morning rains and gusty winds caused scores to soar on the final day. The ' Horns finished third behind Lamar and defending cham- pion Houston. In a sudden-death playoff, Lamar ' s Phillip Jonas beat Chamblee, parring the ninth hole, which Chamblee bogeyed. " He just kind of outlasted me today, " said Chamblee. " The wind came up today around holes 7 and 8 and it was very hard to score. " The Pan American tourney opened the 1984 season for the Longhorns. They placed fourth in the field of 20. " I had figured this team would peak later than last year ' s because of all the new people we ' re looking at, " Clayton said. Following that tournament, the team took another fourth place finish at the Henry Homberg tourney. In both tournaments, the three teams to finish ahead of Texas were ranked in the top five nationally. Texas was ranked seventh. At the Morris Williams Inter- collegiate in April, Chamblee won the tournament by taking the first hole in a sudden -death playoff. " I wanted to get a positive image of sudden vic- tory, " said Chamblee, " I was sick of losing playoffs. " Chamblee was the first Horn to win this tourney since Ben Crenshaw in 1973. The ' Horns placed second in the tourney behind Houston. Trying to defend their 1983 Southwest Conference title, the men ' s team shot a 912 to place third in the 54-hole tournament. Houston captured the championship with six among the top eight individuals, while Arkansas was second. Board finished at 266, placing ninth. Following a seventh place finish at the Sun Devil tournament, the team prepared for the NCAAs. After the first round, the Horns were in second place. UT slipped to 18th place, 13 shots back in the second round. In the third round, UT shot six over par on the 18th hole and failed to make the cut into the final round by one stroke. " We are obviously very disap- pointed, " Clayton said. " We let it slip away on the 18th and we usually finish strong. " Mimi Lintott Paul Thomas drives in the SWC tourney.

Men ' s Golf 167 Champions To A Tee WOMEN ' S GOLF Confidence the magic ingredient needed by the 1983-84 women ' s golf team to ensure a promising year did not elude the team for long. During the first tournament, coach Patricia Weis predicted, " If we get some confidence, we ' re going to do well this year. " Throughout the season, the Lady Longhorns proved they had both the ability and confidence to be winners. In September 1983, Texas started the season with a victory, capturing the team crown at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic in Norman, Okla. The ' Horns defeated the University of Tulsa in a sudden-death playoff. An outstanding performance by junior Sherri Steinhauer, who shot a 3-under-par 71 grabbed the second place title in individual play. Seniors Nancy Ledbetter and Kim Shipman finished the tournament in sixth and seventh places respectively. In October, the ' Horns finished fourth in the Memphis State Invita- tional Women ' s Golf Tournament.

At the end of the Fall, the team had won two of three events and was ranked No. 10 in the nation. " It ' s a good start and I expected to do that well, " Weis said. " I think we have better leadership on the course this year. " Sparked by the trio of experienced players Shipman, Steinhauer and Ledbetter the ' Horns moved on to a productive Spring. These three led a well-balanced team which included juniors Meredith McCuaig and Debbie Greiner back from the previous season, and the talented batch of newcomers. These newcomers included freshmen Donna Linder, a two-time district and regional champion, Karolyn Criado, a former district champion, and Lisa DePaulo, Southern California ' s 1983 top junior. Also in the lineup were junior Robin Moran, who transferred from Temple Junior College, and freshman Janet Robbins, who was 2A state medalist four straight years. After a trip in February 1984 to Gainesville, Fla., where the ' Horns finished fifth in the Lady Gator In- vitational, they prepared for the Bet- sy Rawls Invitational. This tourna- ment, held March 9-11 and hosted by the Lady Longhorns at Austin ' s Great Hills course, attracted 18 teams, including 10 of the top 20 teams in the nation. Despite extremely difficult weather conditions, the girls took the lead after the first round, with a one- stroke lead over Florida and South Florida. Taking advantage of their home course, UT won the SWC Tourna- ment by 27 shots over TCU, while Ledbetter took individual medalist honors with a three-day total of 216. Steinhauer and Shipman tied for fourth place with 228 totals. McCuaig finished sixth and DePaulo placed tenth. With that victory Texas set their sights on NCAAs, making it their tenth straight trip to a national tournament. After a team total of 322, UT could only manage 13th place in first and second round action, finishing llth in the tourney.

Three hours and 45 minutes after he took the big splash, McPhail crossed the finish line of Austin ' s Budweiser Light Triathlon Sept. 11, 1983. Since 330 others had beat him there, McPhail did not receive much of a greeting. But the satisfaction of finishing the triathlon was well worth the effort. Matt McPhail practices for the triathlon. McPhail decided to enter the triathlon because he wanted to see if he could do three events back-to- back and finish. " I ride my bike to school a lot, " he said, " and like swim- ming and running, so when I heard about the triathlon in Austin, I decid- ed to give it a try. " McPhail, a business senior, said he got hooked on the sport and would pursue it. " I enjoyed it and plan to seriously train for future triathlons in the Houston and Dallas areas. " Marvin Stone succumbs to heat exhaustion midway through the running phase. 170 Triathlon Completing the second leg of the triathlon, swimmers race to their bikes. The event was kicked off with a banquet on Saturday night at the Marriott Hotel in Austin. Two triathletes were on hand to give tips to those first time competitors. The speakers, Marc Suprenant of Center- ville, Mass., and Annie McDonnell, a Minneapolis native, also competed. The overall winner of Austin ' s triathlon was not Suprenant, the favorite, but Marc Thompson from Houston, who won in 2:34.02. In the women ' s division, the favored McDonnell won, finishing the event in 3:02. 19, 27th overall. Her closest challenger, Austinite Vicki Smith, finished in 3:08.05. Several UT athletes competed. There were representatives from both the track and swimming teams. Of all the athletes, Bridget Jensen of the track team came in first with a time of 3:25 .0, placing 207th. David Lindsey, a diver, was next, with a time of 3:43.08, placing 289th. Some of the other athletes competing were swimmers Joan Pennington, ex-UT All-American Clay Britt, who placed tenth in the swimming competition, All-American Becky Kast and Jenny Naffzinger.

Triathlon 171 Fresh From The Start MEN ' S BASKETBALL It was a season marked by fresh faces, early season spills and plenty of chances to learn. Youth was the theme of the 1983- 84 Texas men ' s basketball team. Of the nine players remaining at the end of the season, five were freshmen. And the growing pains they endured reminded everyone that the Longhorns were still in a rebuilding stage under second-year coach Bob Weltlich. But by the end of the season, the Longhorns ' youth had become not so much the handicap of the present, but the hope for the future. Weltlich ' s fledgling program took a step forward, despite finishing with a record of 7 -22. Texas won its opening game of the season the 63rd time in 78 years over Missouri Southern State University, 83-81 in overtime. What made that opening win even better than others in the past, however, was the fact that Texas came into the game from a 13-game losing streak from the previous season. The Longhorns played as if they were in- tent on proving last season was well, last season. " It ' s been a long time, " Weltlich said after the game. " But that ' s really irrelevant because it ' s under different circumstances different team, dif- ferent teams we ' re playing against, different year. " We ' re going to make some mistakes, " Weltlich added. " Boy, I mean we made our share of them and we really did some things that you can ' t do and be a good team. But nobody said that we were going to start out this year being a great team. " Texas forward Carlton Cooper started a trend against Missouri Southern that he continued throughout the season, scoring 38 points to lead both teams. Cooper ' s average hovered between 18 and 20 points per game all season and he was consistently among the top four scorers in the Southwest Conference. A Carlton Cooper dunk added to his 20 points; it wasn ' t enough, as UT fell to San Diego, 91-77. L: 172 Men ' s Basketball s= Als . his nine rebounds per game placed him among the top four in that category. Cooper ' s emergence had much to do with extra off-season work and Weltlich ' s decision to move him from center to forward. " I just think he ' s got to play out there, " Weltlich said. " To expect him to play inside which he can still play, but to go in there and log 30, 40 minutes, . locking horns with those 6-7, 6-8 guys - - I just think it ' s futile. " Cooper ' s improvement proved especially critical when the Longhorns lost much of what little experience they had early in the season. Forward-guard Mitch Parrish missed the entire year because of a knee injury. And senior forward Bill Wendlandt left the team in early December, citing health reasons and a business opportunity. Over the Christmas holidays, senior forward Don Ellis left the team, as did freshmen Mike Hess and Tom Nelson. The unexpected voids meant Weltlich had to insert freshmen perhaps sooner than he would have liked. By early January, three freshmen were starting for the Longhorns: guard Marcus Bolden, center Raynard Davis and forward Dennis Ferryman. Having such a youthful lineup caused problems. " We get caught up in the emotion of the game, " Weltlich said after a 74-47 loss to Texas Tech, Jan. 7. " We get caught up in running up and down the floor and lose track of what we ' re supposed to do. We see them running up and down the court and think we have to run up and down, too. We can ' t do that. We ' re not mature enough to back off and say, ' Hey, we can ' t do this. ' " The December defections showed in the Longhorns ' record. Texas had won four of its 10 non-conference games, but lost its first four con- ference games in January. Aside from Cooper, forward David Sietz, guard Karl Willock and walk-on guard Craig Carlton were the only players with previous playing time. The lack of depth hurt Texas against more ex- perienced SWC teams. " Cooper and Willock having to play 40 minutes really shows, " Weltlich said after the Longhorns lost 68-52 to Texas A M Jan. 25. " But we can ' t play without them in there. You can see what happens. They (the other team) keep running Karl Willock ' s 6 ' 3 " height couldn ' t beat UH. FIRST ROW: Greg L.

And when it did, it hap- pened explosively. Texas ' 67-47 vic- tory over injury prone Baylor Jan. 21 in the Frank Erwin Center broke a 17-game SWC losing streak for the Longhorns. Seitz scored 20 second - half points as Texas outscored the Bears 35-10 in the second half. The problem was, the Longhorns played well against the teams they weren ' t supposed to beat and not as well against those they should have played more closely. Texas Tech beat the Longhorns by a combined 56 points in two games. Texas lost to Rice 63-49, Jan. 14 four days after it lost to nationally-ranked Houston 69-58. Twice, Texas lost by 11 to Houston, ranked among the top five in the nation most of the season. The shocker, however, occurred Jan. 19, when the Longhorns down by 20 points in the first half surprised 19th-ranked Arkansas by pulling to a 68-66 deficit with seconds remaining, only to lose 70-66. " We need to learn how to start win- ning some ball games, " Seitz said. " We need to start beating some of the teams we should beat, not just playing well against teams like Houston and Arkansas, " he said. ,- ' Dennis Ferryman, tries to find an open man. Karl Willock recovers the ball as Texas sneaks an 83-81 win over Missouri Southern University opening the 1983-84 season. 174 Men ' s Basketball Texas did, however, catch praises from opposing SWC coaches as the season progressed. Defense in par- ticular was on Rice coach Tommy Suitt ' s mind after Texas beat the Owls 61-57, Feb. 15 in the Erwin Center, avenging the earlier loss. " They ' re especially sound on the defensive end, " Suitt said. " They ' re not going to have any breakdowns defensively. " Texas improved statistically from last season, especially its shooting. The Longhorns shot better from the field (.473 this season, compared to .456 last season), and much better from the free-throw line (.677 to .570). Perhaps most telling was the fact that their average SWC loss margin fell from 20.9 points in 1982- 83 to 12.1 in 83-84. The Longhorns closed their season by choppong 74-75 decision to Texas A M at College Station. The Aggies went on to upset SMU in the tournament, before losing 59- 57 to Arkansas in the quarterfinals. SMU, however, joined Houston and Arkansas as the SWC ' s represen- tatives in the NCAA tournament. Texas, meanwhile, remained at home. Although the team apparently played better in 1983-84 than it had Aggressive play leads David Seitz to a basket. the previous season, Weltlich still saw his two year record at The University fall to 13-43. " It was disappointing in terms of wins and losses, " Weltlich said of the 1983-84 season. " But it was still con- fident the team was improving. " Both Dodds and Weltlich were en- couraged because 6-11, John Brownlee, a transfer from North Carolina, would be able to play with the team next year. He was forced to sit out games because of a NCAA transfer rule. " It didn ' t show up in wins and losses as in the way the kids played, " Dodds said. " I think we ' ll see im- provement next year, but I ' m not go- ing to make any predictions. I ' ve never known anyone who could make predictions and be accurate.

(Hard work paid off for the Lady j Longhorns as they found themselves I at the top of the nation ' s top 20 poll. [it was the first time ever the ' Horns fhad sole possession of No. 1. " I was a little reluctant before we |got up there because it ' s a motiva- tional factor for our opponents, " said ihead coach Jody Conradt. " But now [we ' re there, we ' re not planning to [give it up easily. " And Texas held to that strategy [from that day forward, ending the Iseason atop the final Associated [Press poll, with a 32-2 record and a |(27-game winning streak. This was achieved despite the Iworst run of knee injuries for a single [season in the history of the team. The injuries made the road to the jNCAAs in Los Angeles questionable. Christmas signaled a break for I most students, but not for the [ ' Horns, as Texas excelled against a Itop 20 non -conference schedule. In a nix day period, the ' Horns defeated pthen No. 9 Kansas State, No. 4 Long iBeach State, and No. 1 USC, which would later go on to win the NCAA tournament. History repeated itself as Louisiana Tech was once again the immovable object in the ' Horns ' way. An 85-60 loss in (the Midwest Regionals put an end to the Texas season. Even though Smith ' s season ended March 2 with a knee injury which would keep her out of action she still impress- ed a panel of coaches to earn a spot on the Kodak All- America team. It was the first time a UT player had been selected to the prestigious squad. Smith ended the year as jthe No. 9 scorer in the nation, 1st team All SWC and SWC Player of the Year. Kamie Ethridge and Fran Harris were ialso All-SWC, while Andrea Lloyd was Newcomer of the Year. Conradt was the National Coach of the Year. Despite the disappointing loss in the regionals, the i future looked bright for the Lady Longhorns, as only Whaley and Smith would be absent from the roster in 11984-85. Everyone else should return. As the Lady Longhorns continued to excel, there was no doubt that in ; 1984, they were second to none. Pat Vires Annette Smith leads UT to a win over Houston. An opening night crowd of 2,970 at the Frank C. Erwin Jr. Center watch- ed Andrea Lloyd hit three free throws in an impressive 79-74 victory over the Hungarian National Team. The Longhorns took a 41-37 halftime lead and never looked back. " The Hungarians are the second best team in Europe, " said UT coach Jody Conradt, who had a 228-43 record starting her eighth year at UT. The 5-point victory gave the Horns a surge of momentum which led to their 82-56 domination of Alabama. Center Annette Smith led the team with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Crimson Tide never came closer than 16 points in the second half. In a hard fought battle, the Longhorns increased their record to 3-0 as they barely defeated the Ten- nessee Volunteers, 66-65. With a driving offense, the team flew past Cheyney University, 88-78. Smith was the game ' s high scorer with 34 points. The Longhorns had a great chance to upset the third-ranked Georgia Bulldogs, but fell short of victory, 67-61. Leading by 22 points in the second half, the Horns al- lowed Georgia to tie the score at 54 with 6:06 remaining. " The turning point was when they went to the zone defense, " said game high scorer Smith. " We didn ' t make the free throws. That hurt us. " After a win over Kansas University on the road after Christmas, the Longhorn women traveled to Iowa, where the unranked Drake Bulldogs shocked them, 87-81. The Longhorn bench got in- to early foul trouble and could never recover. Bouncing back into form, the Texas women slid past the Kansas State Wildcats, 82-78. They won despite commit- ting 30 turnovers to Kansas State ' s 25. The victory helped the ' Horns regain their confidence as they went on to upset the to p-ranked USC Trojans, 77-68. It was the first loss of the season for Southern California. Conradt got inspired efforts from Longhorn substitutes Cara Priddy and Audrey Smith. Priddy scored nine points in 24 minutes and Smith, Annette ' s sister, scored six points and had three assists. A key factor in the game was Women ' s Basketball 177 Second To None the Horns ' rebounding control, as they out rebounded USC, 44-38. In the second game of 1984, the women prevailed 73-72 over No. 4 California State-Long Beach at the Erwin Center. The victory gave Texas an 8-2 record, and Long Beach suffered its first loss. In an impressive victory, the Longhorns opened their 1984 Southwest Conference title quest as they blew out the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 85-62. After leading by only six at halftime, Texas coasted to a fourth straight victory and 64th straight SWC victory. In an 110-54 win over the Rice Owls, Annette Smith led all scorers with an overwhelming 46 points. " After I hit my first two shots, I felt my confidence growing, " Smith said. Even though three players fouled out, the Longhorns soundly defeated Baylor in Waco on Feb. 22. Texas finished with only five players as it won its 77th consecutive Southwest Conference game. Annette Smith scored 31 points by hitting 13 of 16 from the field. The Longhorns capitalized on this momentum at the Northern Lights Invitational Championship Tourna- ment in Alaska. After defeating Pep- perdine and Florida State, Texas got its running game going late in the first half of the final game and pulled away from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas to defeat them 82-60 and win the tournament. Smith was the tournament ' s MVP with a total of 67 points in three games. Lloyd and Kamie Ethridge also made the all-tournament team.

During a scrimmage to prepare for a game against TCU, leading scorer Smith suffered a knee injury which ended her season prematurely. She was the fifth Longhorn to be serious- ly injured this season. " I ' m just numb right now, " Con- radt said regarding the injury. " I had a very emotional reaction when it happened. " The Horns held together to defeat TCU by 40 points. Fran Harris led all scoring with 21 points and was followed by Cara Priddy with 20. The Horns finished the regular season with 23 straight victories, a record of 28-2 overall and 16-0 in the Southwest Conference. The season, however, was not over. At the SWC Tournament in Houston, the Horns soundly defeated Houston, 96-76, and Texas Tech, 83-73, to win a berth in the NCAA Midwest Regional. The first obstacle on the road to the NCAA finals in Los Angeles was Drake. Avenging an earlier loss, the Horns defeated Drake, 96-60 at the Frank Erwin Center. The team then dispatched Nor- theast Louisiana, 99-91. Andrea Lloyd, the lone Longhorn on the All- Tournament team, stole the show with a career high 29 points. The win earned the Horns the right to the rematch of the 1983 regional final with Louisiana Tech. Scott Wasserman FIRST ROW: Mary Camille Ethridge, Esoleta Whaley, Paulette Moegle, Debra A.

Women ' s Basketball 179 A Touch Too Late MEN ' S SWIMMING DIVING Before the season began, UT men ' s swimming coach Eddie Reese said he would be satisfied with a top five finish in the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. In that respect, 1984 was a satisfy- ing year for the Longhorns. But, for the third consecutive year, the team came back from the NCAAs wondering about the big one that got away. The Longhorns saw a narrow lead vanish during the final day of competition in Cleveland, finishing second to Florida. " We were as good as we could be, " Reese said, " You can ' t ask to have a better meet than we had. Florida did the same; they were real good, also. It was a great meet. We ' d like to have won it, but they were just too strong for us this year. " During the dual meet season, Texas proved too strong for its com- petition. The Longhorns rolled to a dual meet record of 7-2, losing only at Stanford and against Auburn at the Texas Swimming Center. Following the loss to Auburn, Texas swept through its final six meets without a setback, beating Houston, UCLA, Florida, Texas Tech, Texas A M and SMU. The dual meet highlights came during the double-dual with UCLA and Florida, then the season-ending showdown with SMU. The double-dual at the TSC featured the national champions from the previous three years: Texas in 1981, UCLA in 1982 and Florida in 1983. Texas raced to an early lead and never looked back. After resting many of their top swimmers against the Texas Tech and A M, the Longhorns traveled to Dallas to renew the Southwest Con- ference ' s top swimming rivalry. This time, it was no contest. Texas won 10 of the first 11 events and recorded a tie for first in the other en route to a rout of the 10th- ranked SMU Mustangs. The 400-yard medley relay team of Rick Carey, Ricky May, Chris Rives and Mike Ellison lowered itsl national-best time for the year to 3:19.14. " The medley relay was really good. It really quieted that crowd, " Reese said. " We knew we had to get on top early and not let up. " Earlier in the year, Reese had listed his team ' s top three goals asi FIRST ROW: Kris W.

Having ac- complished the first task, the Longhorns then set their sights upon their fifth consecutive conference championship. Texas got it, but not easily. SMU jumped out to lead after the first night. It was the first time in four years the Longhorns had trailed going into the second day. The Longhorns recovered 23 points during the second day, and then blew the Mustangs out of the TSC to take the conference crown. Reese had hoped the momentum gained in the conference meet would carry over into the NCAAs, but it didn ' t quite work out that way. At the SWC Championships, Mark Ragusa swims to fifth place in the 100-meter backstroke. Dave Swenson checks his time after his swim. World-record holder Carey defend- ed his two NCAA championships in the 100- and 200-yard backstroke, and led off the Longhorns ' 400 medley relay team which also cap- tured first place. Matt Scoggin also defended a na- tional title, winning the one-meter diving. But that wasn ' t enough. Texas ' young team (only two seniors were among the 19 Longhorns who went to Cleveland) did well, but could not overcome Florida ' s veteran depth. " We sure gave it a shot, " Scoggin, a junior, said. " We had some tough breaks, but that ' s the way it goes. " With such a veteran team return- ing, the top five probably won ' t be good enough for Reese and the Longhorns in 1985. Gaylon Krizak Men ' s Swimming and Diving 181 A Splashing Success WOMEN ' S SWIMMING DIVING = In the beginning, things looked good, but not necessarily great, for the Texas women ' s swimming and diving team. The team sent to the NCAA cham- pionships in Indianapolis was loaded with freshmen. Eleven of them, to be exact. The team ' s leadership was provid- ed by two swimmers, Joan Penn- ington and Dawn Kirchner, who quit competitive swimming when the Longhorns won the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women championship in 1981. Coach Richard Quick ' s Longhorns probably weren ' t among the top three teams in the nation going into the 1984 NCAAs. But Texas took the lead after the third event and never let go. Emily Sullivan dives at the SWC competition. The Longhorns outdistanced second-place Stanford, 392-324, to win their second national champion- ship, the first under Quick. The key? " The freshmen were great, " he said. " They did what we needed them to do. But we wouldn ' t be anywhere without the leadership of the seniors. " Texas rolled to a 6-1 dual meet record in ' 84. Even that one loss to top-ranked Stanford was far from a total loss, as the Longhorns finished qualifying swimmers and would send competitors to every NCAA event. Swimming the backstroke leg of the 200 individual medley, Joan Pennington sets a SWC record. 182 Women ' s Swimming and Diving 400 yard free-style relay members give the UT victory sign after winning the gold medal.

That strength made Texas the un- disputed leader among Southwest Conference teams. Even before the SWC Championships, Texas A M coach Mel Nash spoke of gunning to be " the best of the rest, " since no team entertained illusions of knock- ing off the Longhorns. Still, no one dreamed the Texas dominance would be so complete. The Longhorns annihilated the rest of the conference, breezing to a final margin of 525 points, 869-344, over second-place Houston. The 869 total was the highest ever in SWC competition. Along the way, Texas swimmers set 11 conference records. The Longhorns won each of the first nine events, led by Pennington, who set SWC records in the 200-yard backstroke and the 200-yard in- dividual medley. She followed those up with another SWC record in the 50-yard backstroke. Pennington shared meet high- point honors with Texas freshman Agneta Eriksson. Both swimmers won four individual events and par- ticipated on two winning relay teams. But before the NCAA meet, Quick realized the dangers of being the big fish in a small pond. He knew Texas could not fall behind at the NCAA meet and still have a shot at the na- tional title. " I think it ' s going to be a close meet, and if it ' s close and we ' re swim- ming well, we have a chance, " he said. Pennington and the Longhorns made sure of that the first day of competition. Pennington won the 100-yard butterfly, and her win was complemented by third-and fourth- place finishes by Eriksson and another freshman, Jodi Eyles. Pennington also participated in two national champion relay teams the 200-yard freestyle and the 400-yard medley also taking two second-place finishes in individual events. As with any championship team, the Longhorns used just the right blend of talent and personality to win the NCAA meet. " There were two or three teams that could have won it, " Quick said. " We just had the chemistry to do it this year. " Gaylon Krizak Women ' s Swimming and Diving 183 On The Rig ht Track TEXAS RELAYS When it was all said and done, 11 records had fallen in the 57th annual running of the Texas Relays. The highlight of the meet was a 303.1 -foot javelin throw by Texas ' Einar Vilh- jalmsson. The throw by the NCAA defending champion was the longest yet recorded in the world. Of the 11 marks set, two were in the high school division, four were in the collegiate division, two in the women ' s and three by junior college athletes. In the high school division, Dallas Roosevelt ' s 400- and 1,600- meter relay teams set new meet records, earning the team the Most Outstan- ding Team award. Roy Martin anchored both relay teams and won the high school 100- yard dash to gain the meet ' s Most Outstanding Athlete award. In both cases, 1984 marked the first time in the history of the Relays that the two awards had been presented to high school participants. The Texas women ' s relay team won the meet ' s Most Outstanding Women ' s Trophy on the efforts of UT sprinter and Most Outstanding Female Athlete Susan Shurr. Shurr anchored the Longhorns ' 400- and 1,600-meter teams which each pulled out wins for Texas. The men ' s Longhorn 400-meter relay team placed a distant sixth in the preliminary heat, eliminating them from the finals, while the 1,600-meter relay team was dis- qualified on the second leg. Finally, in the 800-meter run, Longhorn Donal Sheehan was the victim of a collision and failed to finish the race. Texas coach Cleburne Price, who was also meet director for the event, was understandably upset. " It ' s bad when you don ' t have your best people running in front of the home crowd, " Price said. " Some things you just don ' t have any control over.

Texas Relays 185 Individual Effort MEN ' S TRACK The 1984 track season was a rebuilding year for Head Coach Cleburne Price and the Texas Longhorns. However, the 18 new recruits represented " one of the best crews we ' ve gotten " since the new ad- ditions provided strength everywhere it was needed said Coach Price. " We ' ll be pretty strong in the field events, especially the javelin, " Price said. " But we ' ll be real thin in the sprints and somewhat thin in the middle distances. " The Horns ' strongest event was the javelin, as UT junior and defending NCAA champion, Einar Vilhjalmsson teamed up with rookie Peter Borglund to qualify for nationals. Vilhjalmsson, successfully defended his title as he had a throw of 293-1. Becoming only one of two athletes who had won an NCAA event more than once. Borglund finished sixth with a throw of 254-5. Another event which UT was strong in 1984 was the high jump, as James Lott performed throughout the season. Especially at the LSU In- vitational in which he leaped 7-5Vi, breaking the school outdoor record and tying the second best outdoor jump ever in SWC history. Lott, the UT indoor record holder at 7-3 qualified for both NCAAs and the Olympic Trials. At NCAAs, Lott placed second with a leap of 7-5 Vi . At the Sooner Indoor Relays, Ray Hutchinson (60-yard hurdles), George Collins (1,000-yard run) and Bjorn Johnansson (Long jump), all took second places to open the 1984 indoor season. At the LSU Invitational, the Horns finished first with 85 points to second place Nebraska ' s 61, as they prepared for the Baylor Invitational. Hosting the 69th SWC Champion- ships, the Horns had hoped to upset two time defending champion, Arkansas. The outlook was good after the 10,000-meter run, because the Horns led with 33 points on the first day of competition. Even with a 1, 2, and 4 finish in the steeplechase by Patrick Sang, Chelego and Jerry Wallace, respec- tively, the Horns were unable to hold off a strong Arkansas finish. In the 1,500-meter run, Arkansas had a 1, 2, 3, 4 finish en route to their third straight SWC Championship. Texas took second with 90 points. Besides winners in the steeplechase competition, Marty Davenport placed 1st in the discus while Lott tied for fourth in the high jump with a 7-1 3 4 leap. Vilhjalmsson placed second in the javelin. At the NCAA Championships, the men ' s team ended their season with a 12th place finish. Besides, Lott, Vilh- jalmsson and Borglund, Sang was the only other Horn to score finishing fourth in the steeplechase.

Men ' s Track 187 Going The Distance WOMEN ' S TRACK The indoor track season was a short one. It kept the teams ready for the outdoor season. There weren ' t many indoor meets and the season came to an end before the runners had a chance to think out a strategy. Normally, wherever the team won during the indoor season, it would either win or place high there during the outdoor season. The forecast for the 1984 outdoor season was indeed bright as Texas qualified eight to the indoor national track meet in Syracuse, N.Y., where they placed 14th overall on Tara Ar- nold ' s second place win in the 1,000 meter run. Texas took third in the Louisiana State University Invitational, where they competed against such powerful opponents as Stanford and Florida State. Arnold won the 1,000 meter run, while Teri Smajstrla surprised the veterans with a 6:97.60 meter dash, which qualified her for nationals. At the SWC Championships, Texas placed second behind Houston, but not before Flo Walker made up 60 meters in the two-mile relay to beat Houston. " I was worried and angry at the same time when I saw how far we were behind. I got the baton and took off as fast as I could to try to make up the difference, " Walker said. Defen- ding SWC champion Arnold defend- ed her title and qualified for nationals. Texas qualified both distance relay teams, the 1,600 (Walker, Susan Shurr, Teri Turner and April Cook) and the 3,200 (Walker, Arnold, Lori! Nelson and Karole Painter). Besides! Arnold and Smajstrla, Turner qualified individually in the 60-meter dash. While the team continued winning, head coach Phil Delavan resigned from the program. " My six years here have been thei happiest years of my life, " he said at a news conference, " But coaching at the Division I level is a young man ' s I game. " But before he stepped down, the) team continued to qualify individuals! to nationals. Before the NCAA meet, I Texas had qualified nine individuals for the events plus two relays.

The Drake Relays set the pace for the SWC Championships as Texas was favored to win against arch rival Houston. After the first day of competition, the favorites, Texas and Houston were tied. UT ' s advantage came in the discus as Dedi Kavanaugh, JoBeth Palmer and Dot Lane finished 1, 2 and 6, respectively. The setback for the Horns was when sprinter Juliet Cuthbert withdrew from competition because of a pulled hamstring. Texas had to settle for second once again.

Women ' s Track 189 Dedicated Service MEN ' S TENNIS The 1983-84 season marked the last time around for University of Texas tennis at Penick-Allison Courts, an intimate, green-fenced enclave where the Longhorns had played matches for 15 years. At the beginning of 1985, the ten- nis teams planned to move into a modern, 12-court complex near Centennial Park, which allowed The University to demolish friendly Penick-Allison, adjacent to Memorial Stadium, to make room for a new athletic complex. The ' Horns were ranked No. 12 in the nation in the Head Intercoll egiate Tennis Standings. Ail-American Jon- ny Levine was ranked No. 3 in singles. In addition to winning the gold medal at the summer Pan American Games, Levine defeated Victor Amaya and Peter Fleming at the U.S. Open. He was eliminated in the 3rd round by Ivan Lendl. Junior Tom Fontana was Texas ' No. 2 singles player. The new faces on the team included three freshmen, Royce Deppe, Doug Pielet and Charles Beckman. Gavin Forbes, a senior, was given an extra year of eligibility and held down the No. 5 singles position. The highlights of the season in- cluded upsets of two major college powers, Trinity and SMU. Texas ' 5-4 dual match win over Trinity on Feb. 21 was one of Snyder ' s biggest wins in recent years. Trinity entered the contest as No. 4 in the nation, with three singles players ranked in the top 27 and two doubles teams ranked in the top 10. Texas captured four of the singles matches, which included wins by Deppe, Pielet and Beckman. A fourth freshman, Fred Thome, teamed with junior Mike Brown in doubles to cap- ture the fifth and deciding match. On April 17, the Horns defeated sixth-ranked SMU, 5-3, in the final UT men ' s match in the history of Penick-Allison courts.

In No. 2 doubles, freshmen Deppe and Beckman upset the nation ' s 13th ranked team, John and Kd Ross, 7-5, 1-6,6-4. Levine put on one of his greatest performances at Penick-Allison, defeating John Ross, 6-2, 6-3, in No. 1 singles. " It was good tennis. I felt really good, " said Levine, who was sen- timental about Penick-Allison. " It was a nice favor for it to end this way. I have incredible feelings about this place. It ' s meant a lot to me because I ' ve played some of my best matches here. " Momentum was building as the Texas team found themselves solid contenders for the SWC champion- ship title.

Despite a victory from Levine, who became Texas ' first No. 1 singles champion in 18 years, and a No. 2 doubles championship from the freshman duo of Beckman and Deppe, the men ' s team came up five points short to Arkansas in their bid. With a record of 20-5 and a second place finish in the SWC standings, the Horns geared up for the NCAA championships in Athens, Georgia, After posting singles wins from Beckman, Deppe, Forbes and Levine, eighth-ranked Auburn was the spoiler for UT as they swept three doubles matches to edge the Horns 5-4. Second-seed Levine and Fontana, received bids in singles and were paired as a doubles team in individual NCAA competition. Fontana was eliminated in first round singles com- petition while his teammate, Levine, lasted until the semifinals round, los- ing to Georgia ' s Michael Pernfors. Together, the team advanced to the second round before losing a 6-2, 6-4 match to Rick Leach and Tim Pawsat. Natalie Guyton Men ' s Tennis 191 Added Advantage WOMEN ' S TENNIS Experience and enthusiasm were the watchwords for the 1984 edition of Texas tennis. Besides the addition of new faces, coach Jeff Moore ' s Lady Longhorns looked forward to the building of a new tennis facility. " We ' ve got the most talented women ' s team ever to play at The University of Texas, " said Moore. The ' Horns began their fall season with a No. 5 ranking in the Head In- tercollegiate Standings, the highest standing in the history of the team. The UT women were also represented in the individual stan- dings. Kathleen Cummings and Beverly Bowes were ranked fifth and 12th in singles, respectively. In doubles, the team of Bowes and Becky Callan ranked 10th and Cum- mings and Gen Grewie were 16th. At the start of the spring season, the ' Horns improved their record to 4-1 on the year, striving to stay ahead of Trinity, the nation ' s top-rated women ' s tennis team. " Trinity is one of the top two teams in the country this year, " said Coach Moo re. " Any time we play them it ' s going to take everyone play- ing their best to beat them. I think the main difference between Trinity and our team is that we don ' t yet really believe we can beat them. It ' s a confidence factor. " Three of the ' Horns ' five losses came at the hands of Trinity. The fifth-ranked ' Horns finished second of eight teams in the Catharine Sample Tournament, held in Miami, Fla., on Nov. 3; third of eight teams at the Brigham Young Invitational at Provo, Utah, Jan. 25- 28; and second of 16 teams at the Arizona Invitational held in Tucson on Feb. 16-18. The Lady Longhorns also took first place in the Longhorn-Kaepa Women ' s Tennis Invitational, ahead of such top-rated teams as UCLA, Trinity and Miami. Rebecca Callan slams an ace against Trinity.

Seeded third in the NCAA Cham- pionships, the Texas women opened play against South Florida, winning 8-1, only to fall to San Diego State 6- 3 in the quarterfinals. UT still had a chance in both singles and doubles play. Cummings and Bowes, seeded first and seventh respectively in singles competition, hoped for victory as did the doubles teams of Bowes Becky Callan, rank- ed seventh, and Cummings Robyn Fields, unseeded. Cummings advanced to the quarterfinals but was defeated 7-6, 6-1 by Lee Ann Eldredge of Stanford. Bowes fell at the hands of Stanford player Kate Gompert, 6-4, 6-2. Both doubles teams were defeated in the first round of play by San Diego State. Texas finished 5th in the ITCA final poll, with Cummings also at 5th in the individuals poll. Cummings and Bowes were named All-Americans as was the team of Bowes and Callan. As a fitting close to a fine year, Cummings received the " Senior Award, " given by the ITCA to an athlete who has risen to the top of collegiate tennis.

Women ' s Tennis 193 Making The Grade ACADEMICS UT Athletes Uphold Winning Standards in Classroom University of Texas athletes are they here to get an education or merely to play their chosen sports? Contrary to a belief that athletes were " dumb jocks " who expected a free ride, most of the athletes at The University chose the school over other schools for academic reasons as well as athletic reasons. Senior foot- ball player Ronnie Mullins came to Texas knowing that " A degree from UT is worth something. If you have a resume with UT on it, people are go- ing to notice. " His teammate, senior offensive guard Doug Dawson, decid- ed on the Longhorns after rating the petroleum engineering programs at various schools. He stressed that his decision was based on a " combina- tion of athletics and academics - and Texas came out first in both. " Another fallacy facing the Longhorns was the belief that a typical athlete ' s major in college was physical education. Sheila Rice, academic advisor for women athletes, corrected this misconception, stating that there was a diversity of majors among athletes. There were Lady Longhorns major- ing in accounting, psychology, nutri- tion, zoology and many other fields, including pre-med. Two of these women, Chris Harrison, a senior ten- nis player from Washington, D.C., and Terry Ebanks, a senior on the cross country team from Virginia, were both Plan II pre-med students. When asked why she chose Texas, a school so far from her home, Harrison said, " they offered me an athletic scholarship with a team who is in the top 20. Plus they offered me Plan II. " Athletes had to find time for study- ing. It is true that all students have to discipline themselves to study, but for athletes who have a hectic workout schedule, study time is hard to find. " You have to work it in, " Harrison said. " It ' s hard because you ' re so tired after practice. " Sporting some of the best GPAs in such majors as engineering, com- munication and business, athletes tried hard to prove themselves, but there was always that inevitable stereotype. Joe Eivens, academic advisor for male athletes, noted the Academic Ail-Americans at The University, whose GPAs had to be at least 3.2, which included Dawson and swim- mers Rick Carey and Eric Finical among others, as proof against this stereotype. Eivens lauded the men ' s swim team, which had the highest combined GPA of all the spor ts. Mimi Lintott Offensive guard Doug Dawson studies to maintain his 3.24 GPA in petroleum engineering. 194 Academics On To The Pros UT ALUMNI Carrying On A Texas Tradition From Coast To Coast The list of former Longhorns in the professional ranks reads like a record book of some of sports ' legends. In 1984, Texas ' pro athletes spanned three decades, from 1949 UT running back and head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Tom Landry, to the NFL ' s 1981 No. 1 draft choice, Kenneth Simms. Through this 30-year expanse, Texas athletic programs produced an impressive number of pros. In golf, three-time NCAA champion Ben Crenshaw excelled at Augusta, Ga., by winning the 1984 Masters, tradi- tionally golfs most prestigious title. Tom Kite, ' 72 NCAA co-champion ' and the top money winner on the PGA tour in 1981, placed sixth in the ' 84 Masters. Mark Brooks, who was ranked No. 1 at The University of Texas in ' 82, joined Crenshaw and Kite on the PGA tour.

World-ranked 1979 Longhorn ten- nis teammates Steve Denton and Kevin Curren were joined by ' 84 top singles player and All-American Jon- ny Levine. Levine, who compiled a 30-7 regular season match record in ' 84 at Texas, was one of the most in- tense and complete players in Longhorn history. " He ' s very unique, " said UT tennis coach Dave Snyder. " He moves as well on the court as any player I ' ve ever been around. He ' s faster than most players who play the game including the professionals. " Beginning with 1977 Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell, Longhorn football alumni have featured great athletes: Glenn Blackwood, Alfred Jackson, Russell Erxleben, Johnnie Lam Jones, John- nie Johnson, Kenneth Simms and Raul Allegre. The 1983 squad was ex- pected to be one of Texas ' strongest representative teams. " I think they probably have 18 or 19 players that will be drafted (by NFL clubs) or signed as a free agent, " said Gil Brandt, the Dallas Cowboys ' vice president for personnel development. Texas ' Cliff Gustafson, collegiate baseball ' s winningest coach, was responsible for most of the Longhorns ' professional players. Three-time All-America pitcher and ' 71 graduate Burt Hooton, Andre Robertson, Keith Moreland and Spike Owen were but a small samp- ling of the 21 Longhorns currently in the major and minor leagues. In all, the 30 years that spanned Texas ' winning tradition produced the few who made the cream of the crop just that the best. Steve Weed UT Alumni 195 196 Baseball Extra Innings BASEBALL Horns Silence Critics Capturing SWC Central Regional Titles, Gaining a Berth at the College World Series With the return of nine lettermen and one starter from the defending national championship team Head Coach Cliff Gustafson ' s 1984 edition of Longhorn baseball wasn ' t expected to make reservations for the College World Series because baseball critics claimed 1984 was a rebuilding year for the team. Missing the top 10 in preseason polls, Texas compiled a 57-12 record en route to their 57th SWC Championship title. By captur- ing that title and the Central Regional title, the Horns traveled to Omaha, Neb., for their 23rd CWS ap- pearance June 1-10. The returning players included Bill Bates at second base, the only return- ing starter, David Denny, third baseman who played outfield last year; designated hitter Doug Hodo and catcher Darren Loy, who both saw duty as designated hitters and outfielders in 1983. Also returning were Steve Labay, who pitched and played in the outfield both years; shortstop Jamie Doughty, who was a backup third baseman and pitchers Wade Phillips and Eric Boudreaux. Mike Simon, also returned but was injured in 1984. An ac- cident prior to the season kept Phillips and Boudreaux out of the lineup, but Boudreaux came back early to comple- ment the pitching staff and Phillips did not make his debut until the end of the season right before the SWC Cham- ionships. The pitching responsibility fell upon freshman reg Swindell who became the first UT rookie to win 14 a n 10 in a season. Prior to the 1984 season, the team lost five regular, as r ell as five top pitchers. Yet, the determination of the oung team defied the odds and found themselves in the mals of the World Series against Cal-State Fullerton. The youngest team that Gustafson had ever coached in is 17 years at Texas was also the youngest team at the ' WS series. Texas ' 42-man roster included 16 freshmen, 15 sophomores, six juniors and five seniors. However, the win- ning ingredient was missing June 10 when the Titans MA Steve Labay pitches a 5-0 shutout against Baylor. defeated the Horns, 3-1 to win the 1984 College World Series. " I kind of had a feeling something like this might happen, " said Labay, who along with Bates were the only returning starters from the lineup that defeated Alabama, 4-3, in 1983 for the title. " I just didn ' t feel we had the magic. Every step we kept taking, I was more surprised. " The Longhorns advanced through the double elimination bracket as the only undefeated team with three wins until they played Oklahoma State. The Horns defeated New Orleans in the first round, 6-3, before defeating Cal State-Fullerton, 6-4 and Arizona State, 8-4. Down by two runs in the first few innings, the Sun Devils seemed to be in control of the game. The winner would automatically advance to the finals. " We knew it was our time, " said David Wrzesinski. " Throughout t the year we ' ve had innings like that. " Wrzesinski was referring to the fifth | inning when UT came from 4-3, to take a 7-4 lead, which turned into an 8-4 victory. The only loss to top- ranked Arizona State was the injury to Loy ' s left hand which was hit by a foul. The win put the Horns into the finals against Oklahoma State. " I ' m surprised to be in the finals, " said Gustafson. " Arizona State has a great hitting ball club. The secret to stopping them? Greg Swindell. " Assured a berth in the finals, Texas took on Oklahoma State in what appeared to be a lopsided victory in favor of the Cowboys in the first two innings of the game, as they led 12-0. But Texas wouldn ' t give up. Normally, thirteen runs would be enough for a win, but not this time as the Cowboys added six more runs to their score, winning 18-13. The Horns ' run by Elanis Westbrooks in the first inning against Cal State-Fullerton in the finals marked the 32nd time this season and second time in the series that UT scored in its first at bat. This showed what a hitting team UT had, as they set several batting records in 1984. Baseball 197 I Extra Innings Texas placed two individuals on the CWS All-Tournament Team, Swindell, who had a 2-1 series record and first baseman Rusty Richards. In May, the Southwest Conference selections were announced in which five Longhorns were named to the all-Southwest team. Swindell was named to all three teams players ' poll, AP and UPI. Bates and Denny made the AP and the players ' poll. Cook was chosen as a utility out- fielder by the AP and Boudreaux was chosen by the players for pitching. Swindell was named newcomer of the year. In addition, Bates, Swindell and Denny picked up All America honors; first second and third team, respectively. The team that was not expected to win the SWC Championship title, finished second in the nation. With a preseason schedule which consisted of 36 games, UT took three of five games from then ranked No. 1 Arizona State and two of three from Cal-State-Fullerton. The Horns began SWC play by sweeping a three game series against the University of Houston, 4-3, 19-0 and 12-11 in Houston on March 25-25. Swindell picked up the win in the I Coach Cliff Gustafson waits for the base hit. I t Greg Swindell delivers a fastball.

On Sunday, the Horns led the Cougars 9-4 in the sixth inning and gained confidence too early when Houston pulled ahead by one run. Requiring four Houston pitchers in the ninth, the Longhorns were two outs away from a 10-9 loss when Bates lined a pitch into left field which started the three-run, ninth in- ning rally for Texas. The following weekend, UT hosted Arkansas March 30-31. Texas gained two of three wins for the Horns. On Friday night before a crowd of 4,500, Horns ' Doughty turned a magnificent triple play almost unassisted combined with a solo home run over the left field wall to lead Texas to a 5-2 win over the Razorbacks. UT split a double-header with the Razorbacks by winning the first game 7-5 and losing 13-4 in game two. The 13-4 loss in the night cap cut the Horns ' winning streak of 13 games. On a Friday afternoon, Swindell allowed only four hits and one run in four innings, leaving TCU hitless in the last five innings, to lead the Longhorns to a 12-1 victory in Fort Worth. Of Texas ' 15 hits, the biggest was a three-run homer by Cook. UT ' s Denny made amends for his three errors the day before, by tying a S WC and school record of three home runs, including a grand slam to send the Longhorns into a first place tie in the SWC. Labay contributed his best perfor- mance of the season with a three-hit shut out to win his first career SWC win, 5-0 against the Baylor Bears. Until Rusty Richards ' solo home run in the fourth inning, the game had been at a scoreless tie. After claiming 3-2 and 10-4 wins over Rice, the Horns pulled into first place in the SWC standings. Traveling to Lubbock the last weekend in April was almost a suc- cess for the Horns, as they took two games from the Red Raiders. Satur- day ' s double-header, 7-3 and 8-2, ad- ded wins for pitchers Swindell and Boudreaux. Sunday ' s game was postponed, but unfortunately, the advantage was Tech ' s as they defeated the Horns, 8-5. Returning home, the Longhorns had to win only one of three games against Texas A M to receive the SWC title for the sixth consecutive season. Before a crowd of 7,000, the Horns combined their hitting ability with superb defense to capture a 12-6 vic- tory over the Aggies. The runs batted in came with the help of UT ' s four home runs by Labay, Denny, Loy and a three-run shot by designated hitter, Hodo. With bases loaded and no outs in the ninth, A M ' s Rob Swaim flew out. A double play ended the inning and the Horns clinched the SWC ti- tle. A M won the first game, 10-7 with 13 hits off of three UT pitchers. The Horns ' 11 hits were not enough to stop the Aggies. Yet, in the night cap, Texas took advantage of A M ' s pitchers by totalling 13 runs three by Labay, two by Richards and three-run homer by Loy to end the series with A M and the regular season, 13-6. Taking the win for the Longhorns was retur- ning pitcher Phillips who made his debut on on the mound by throwing five innings striking out five hit- ters and giving up only four hits. Shortstop Jamie Doughty attempts to steal home plate against Arkansas at Disch-Falk Field. Baseball 199 Extra Innings Coming on in relief was Ruffin and Swindell. Swindell picked up the save to end the Longhorns ' SWC record at 16-5. For the sixth straight season, the Longhorns dominated the SWC tour- nament. With an 8-1 win over the Razorbacks and a 15-4 victory over A M, the Horns advanced to the finals, where they beat the Aggies, 9-5. UT contributed seven players to the SWC Tournament team: Cook, Denny, Doughty, Labay, Swindell, Vondenkamp and Wrzesinski. For the sixth year in a row, Disch- Falk Field played host to the Central Regional Tournament.

" Swindell pitched superbly, but then he has all year long, " said Gustafson. Besides, Swindell ' s pit- ching, the hitting highlights included a two-run home run and a RBI triple by Doughty. Denny also homered and singled in UT ' s first game of the regional to earn the right to play Nevada-Las Vegas. A Cook three-run homer and RBI single paced the Horns over the Rebels and put them in the finals. In a controversial call, Texas edged Lamar in the Central Regional, 6-5, to take their fourth consecutive trip to the College World Series. The play was at the plate with bases loaded and one out when Cook hit a sacrifice fly to left scoring Bates, who slid under Lamar catcher Dennis Dresden ' s tag. In this series, the Horns ' Cook was named the most outstanding player, while other all-tourney selections in- cluded Bates, Doughty, Denny, Labay and Swindell. With the win, the Horns reserva- tions in Omaha were confirmed. In defense of their 1983 national cham- pionship title, Texas was trying to ac- complish what had been done by only two schools in the College World Series history and win back-to-back titles.

Baseball 201 For The Fun Of It RECREATIONAL SPORTS Student Athletes Have The Opportunity To Participate Win or Lose Recreational sports enabled University students to unleash their anxieties through competitive sports, outdoor recreation and group exer- cise. University sports clubs, Open Recreation, Intramurals and the Out- door Program offered a variety of outlets for students. Sports clubs gave students the chance to participate in organized sports at a non-varsity level. Throughout the year, there were ap- proximately 1,500 individuals active in 40 clubs formed and run by students. The clubs ranged from highly com- petitive sports such as soccer and lacrosse to recreational activities in- cluding table tennis and belly danc- ing, and even instruction in sports such as synchronized swimming. The Open Recreation Program pro- vided a recreational, non-tournament form of participation. Facilities and equipment were available for all types of activities including badminton, weight training, basketball, even archery. Todd Weinert chose racquetball as his favorite activity. " With reservations, you ' re always assured of a court, " he said. Patricia Coffelt, a frequent swimmer, enjoyed the times she spent at the Texas Swimming Center. " After swimming competitively in high school, I am glad to have facilities to keep in shape, " she said. The Outdoor Program provided students with the equip- ment and knowledge necessary to fully enjoy outdoor ac- tivities: backpacking, camping, canoeing, bicycling and snorkeling. Additional activities easily accessible to UT students were windsurfing, rockclimbing, kayak pool slalom and horseback riding. Sharlyn Kidd joined a snorkeling trip down the San Mar- cos River. " Our guide instructed us before going into the water and continuously during the swim, " she said. " We went with a small group of people and had a great time. " Stephanie Hall enjoys rock climbing. Intramurals matched students of similar athletic abilities. " It lets us compete against each other like we did in high school, " said Bobby O ' Conor, who played basketball for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. " It keeps us active and is a lot of fun, " he said. O ' Conor ' s teammate, Blake Mas- sey, enjoyed the benefits of playing on an intramural team. " I get a good deal of exercise, have fun competing and like the girls cheering in the stands, " he said. Women also enjoyed participating in Intramural sports. " I ' ve played on girl ' s teams before, but coed is the most fun you get to play with the guys, " said Amber Calvert, a member of the coed softball team, Honking Geese. Calvert ' s roommate, Maria Pierson, said, " It ' s a blast playing on the team because we all have one thing in com- mon we ' re beer drinkers. We drink before our games for good luck, then again afterwards to celebrate win or lose. " Calvert added, " Beer is our mascot. " There were men ' s, women ' s and coed divisions in most of the sports, which included football, j fencing, table tennis and softball. The winners of each category received Intramural Champion T-shirts. Gary Vanderstope, who played on a coed softball team for the Longhorn Band, said, " I want to win an Intramural Champion T-shirt although I know I ' ll probably never get one. Even if we never win, we have a great time. " Kathy Gatton, another Longhorn Band team member said, " I play because I like the partying after the games. I think that is why everyone on our team plays. " To celebrate The University ' s Centennial, Rec Sports held some special tournaments and demonstrations as part of the Centennial Showcase. There were Outdoor Basket- ball Tournaments, various Sport Club demonstrations in- 1 eluding an exhibition by the Men ' s Soccer club and the lacrosse team.

Committee members celebrate the end of festivities honoring the Texas Union ' s 50th Anniversary April 13. 210 Student Leadership CELEBRATE THE UNION 1 xcept for Thanksgiving, the month of November passed with j little recognition. On Nov. 23, 1983, students passed through the Texas Union not knowing the Union was celebrating its 50th anniversary. To avoid conflict with The University ' s Centennial celebration, the anniversary activities were postponed until the Spring. " We wanted the Union ' s anniversary to be special, not just another Centennial activity, " said Cyndi Penberthy, Texas Union Anniversary Committee chairwoman. During the week of April 9-13, each decade of the Union ' s 50 years was celebrated. Events included 1930 drink specials, 1940 war ration food coupons, 1950 burger and shake specials and 1960 health food. At the end of the week long celebration, a ceremony ' com- memorating the anniversary was held at noon on the steps of the Union. Shirley B. Perry, Vice President and Coor- dinator of Centennial Pro- grams, Union Director Frank Bartow and Union Board Presi- dent Shawn Smith presided. The Longhorn Band played UT favorites as the crowd toasted the Union ' s 50 years. Brightly-colored balloons released at the end of the ceremony marked the end of the celebration and the begin- z ning of the Texas Union ' s next half century. Jeff Siptak Penberthy awaits balloon release. - Student Leadership 21 1 TEXAS UNION BOARD " The board made staffing decisions, set budgeting policies and monitored dining services. " 66 ur committees provide an J area where students and faculty can set a direction for the Union and see that it is accomplish- ed, " Shawn Smith, chairman of the Texas Union Board of Directors, said. The Operations Council, Pro- gramming Council and Board of Directors combined to govern the Union during its 50th anniversary. Six students, three faculty representatives and two former Union members comprised the Board of Directors. The board made staffing decisions, set budgeting policies and monitored dining and retail services. The board also oversaw an $8 million Union budget. The board also implemented policy changes. A new no-smoking rule was imposed in many areas of the Union. An advisory council was establish- ed to guide the Union with its ser- vices and finances. Alumni, Universi- ty administrators and students form- ed the council. " It ' s a major breakthrough which offers a good way to solicit funds, " Smith said. Greater financial stability enabled the board to focus on other priorities. " There is not a financial crisis this year, " Smith said. " The endowment fund we began last year helps sub- sidize a number of areas. Fee s will stay pretty stable for another year or two. " Students paid $17 per semester in Union fees in 1983-84. Expansion of the Union was a ma- jor goal of the board. Smith said in- creasing demand for dining services created the need for growth. Finance, public relations, dining and management subcommittees set policies for the Operations Council. Subcommittee chairpersons, their advisers, and members of the board represented the Operations Council. " Many of our projects are carried out through the Operations Council, " Smith said. " It gives us a way to ex- pand and involves a lot more students. " The Programming Council coor- dinated all Union programs and events. Twelve subcommittees di- vided responsibility within the coun- cil. " Programming works on effec- tively communicating with the stu- dent body, " Smith said. " This might be one of the only areas students are exposed to, so it ' s important for them to keep informed. " Student involvement was a key area of concern for Union commit- tees. " We offer a great opportunity for student input, " Smith said. " This is one of the few places on campus where their input directly affects what happens.

Operation and Program Councils 213 DINING SERVICES COMMITTEE You walk into the Union for a mouth-watering lunch of chicken cordon bleu and Yorkshire pudding, but to your surprise, it ' s nowhere to be found. So what do you do? You could settle for a chicken- fried steak and chocolate pudding. Sulking as you eat, you decide to get out your frustrations and write down your favorite menu, depositing it into a Dining Services suggestion box. What? You think your suggestion or gripe will go unnoticed? Well, ac- cording to Molly Fowler, Texas Union Dining Services Committee Chair, it won ' t. " The committee collects all the suggestions and discusses them dur- ing weekly meetings. Then each member takes them to the ap- propriate food station and discusses the committee ' s ideas on the matter, " said Fowler. Fowler also noted that nonsmokers had the efforts of the committee and the suggestion of students to thank for the " no smoking " areas in Dill- ingham ' s Pasture, the Battle Oaks " The committee was always on the move checking out other Austin restaurants, comparing prices . . . " Room, and a fourth-floor study area. Fowler said that the committee was always on the move, checking out other Austin restaurants, comparing prices and getting new ideas. When they were not checking out the competition, the committee worked on other activities such as the Union Reunion, the 50th anniversary of the Union and orientation for new members. " The committee offers a good background for any major. We are made up of nutrition, nursing, jour- nalism, business, and economics ma- jors, " she said.

" FINANCE COMMITTEE The Texas Union Finance Com- mittee introduced tough budget controls and research in 1983-84 in addition to fulfilling its stated pur- pose of keeping the Texas Union Board of Directors abreast of Union financial matters, committee chair Mark Mitchell said. Mitchell, finance senior, said the committee expanded considerably in scope during its three-year existence. Activities included research and development of possible new Union procedures, interaction with the com- mittees about budgets and informing the student body of the Union ' s financial condition. Neil Thorjussen, business soph- omore, said he joined other members in a feasibility study on a debit card system for purchases made at the Union. Under the proposed system, students would deposit funds in special Union accounts and would charge all Union purchases against the accounts. Mitchell said similar systems have worked successfully at other universities. Other members sought to analyze revenue and cost centers of the Union. Mitchell said the committee carried out its research in order to en- sure that the Union services were meeting student needs and conform- ing to budget. In an assessment of the Union ' s check cashing service, the committee determined that more space to write checks and more cashiers were need- ed. The Union accounting office then installed a portable counter and rescheduled cashiers to alleviate long lines. Mitchell said the committee not only prepared financial statements for the programming committees but also reported regularly to the Texas Union Program Council on the pro- fits and expenditures of each com- mittee, making sure that each com- mittee chair was responsible for the financial aspects of every program.

" PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE The Texas Union Public Rela- tions Committee was responsi- ble for " publicly representing the Union, " committee chair Monique Bordelon said. Besides representing the Union, the committee promoted good rela- tions among alumni, University students and Union personnel. Forty members divided into four subcommittees. The alumni relations subcommittee kept the alumni in- formed on Union events with an an- nual newsletter. The subcommittee was also responsible for sending in- vitations to all alumni for the Union Reunion, an April 1984 gathering of former chairmen of Union committees. To promote greater student usage of the Union facilities and programs, the outreach subcommittee held a student leadership party. All Univer- sity organization leaders were in- vited, and shown the advantages of the Union facilities as locations for offices, meetings and programs. The media relations subcommittee was in charge of promoting the Union itself. The in-house subcommittee plann- ed happy hours and parties to pro- mote friendship within the group. A new program introduced by the TUPRC, the CoSponsorship Pro- gram, was designed to let all Univer- sity organizations use Union facilities. " Many organizations don ' t use the Union because they can ' t afford to; this program will enable them the use of all the facilities, " Bordelon said. The program would pay the ex- penses of organizations who could not afford Union rates. " This way no one will be denied the right to use the Union, " Bordelon said.

" Special programming for The University ' s Centennial year and the Texas Union ' s 50th anniver- sary was planned by the Texas Union Centennial Committee. Committee chair Cyndi Penberthy said that the group planned a Sept. 15 barbecue for students and visitors in the Texas Union Ballroom. The members also served pieces of a giant birthday cake baked in the shape of the Tower by Texas Union cooks. The group organized the final lec- ture in its Distinguished Alumni Speaker Series in October, when forever Lyndon B. Johnson ad- ministration aide Liz Carpenter discussed the humor of presidents. The committee spearheaded plan- ning for the Texas Union ' s 50th an- niversary, April 9-13. The celebration for each day used as its theme the styles of one of the five decades of the Union ' s existence. Union committees provided music, film, food, theater and recreation corresponding to each era. Special seminars served as a backdrop to the development of the Texas Union and of the University during the previous 50 years.

" SPC sold flowers at the Cupid Connection SPECIAL PROGRAMS COMMITTEE The Special Programs Committee of the Texas Union packed its second year of operation with new programs along with projects it had introduced in its first-year agenda. The committee developed its green thumb in 1983-84 with a houseplant sale Sept. 29-31, 1983, and a sale of carnations, roses and balloons Feb. 13-14 for Valentine ' s Day. Committee chair John Hinze noted that purchasing flowers in bulk lowered prices for students and im- proved quality while netting a profit for the Union. Hinze said the purpose of continu- ing the committee was to provide ser- vice for the Texas Union and its com- mittees and to train members in planning programs. Members learned about the Union through cosponsor- ship of programs with other Union committees as well as through pro- grams undertaken by the Special Programs Committee itself. SPC provided manpower for the Theater Committee ' s Madrigal Din- ner and for Texas Union Informal Classes registration. The committee also sponsored, along with the Dining Services Committee, a Coffee Blowout, which consisted of refreshments for final exam study breaks in the Academic Cen ter lobby. Students lunching in the Ballroom Dec. 5-9 enjoyed visits from Holland ' s Father Christmas and France ' s Pere Noel. Holiday revelers representing Sweden and Mexico also demonstrated their yuletide tradi- tions to Ballroom patrons during this week. SPC promoted school spirit by in- viting University students to watch out-of-town Longhorn football games on the Tavern ' s big-screen TVs. Standing-room-only crowds com- peted for diverse door prizes, in- cluding cowboy hats and pitchers of beer.

Special Programs Committee 219 CULTURAL ENTERTAINMENT Bringing the " best and brightest " to The University, the Cultural Entertainment Commit- tee planned a calendar of events which would interest students and members of the Austin community alike. Committee adviser Carol Prior con- tacted New York agents, who provid- ed lists of touring productions that could be staged on campus. The membership, which committee chair- man Steve Bardin said was broad enough to represent the student body, chose the performances to be booked. Performances were often booked one to one and a half years in advance. The committee was divided into five subcommittees. The music, dance and theater subcommittees in- vestigated areas in their prospective fields to see what students thought was new, interesting or popular. The publicity subcommittee was in charge of publicizing upcoming events by distributing fliers, buying radio spots and putting up posters. The pre-registration subcommit- tee ' s job was to encourage students to purchase the CEC-PAC discount package when registering for classes. The package allowed students up to a 35 percent savings on tickets for all CEC events. " No special knowledge of the arts is necessary to become a member of CEC. Just enthusiasm and a desire to learn and work hard, " Bardin said. The visit of the nationally renown- ed Twyla Tharp Dance Company was the biggest event of the year. The dance group spent Nov. 7-19, 1983, at the Performing Arts Center. Another event sponsored by the CEC was the third annual " Great Waltz. " Students enjoyed the oppor- tunity to dance to the classical music of waltzes and polkas by the Austin Community Orchestra. Other performances brought to campus were the musicals " Oliver " and " Fiddler on the Roof and Ella Fitzgerald with her jazz ensemble.

" SPECIAL EVENTS COMMITTEE One of the many game show rooms at Friday Gras was Family Feud, based on the popular TV show. Where could UT students find relatively inexpensive enter- tainment that was close to home? Ac- cording to Keely Bishop, Special Events Committee chairman, the Special Events Committee was in charge of planning and overseeing a variety of creative parties for students at the Texas Union. " Our specific goal is to provide entertainment on campus, " said Bishop, " but our broader goal is to get students into the Union to see what it has to offer. " Thousands of students attended Friday Gras on Sept. 2, 1983, and the Horror Show on Oct. 28. Game show rooms at the events provided fun as students competed for prizes donated by local merchants and restaurants. The SEC also threw patio and theme parties. The Union restaurants and bars cooperated by offering specials during party times. Shelly Schwarz (try M) " " FIRST ROW: Susan L. Parker, Laura Ann Burnett, Jessica W.

Eileen Reinauer, committee chair- woman, said, " We are trying to pro- vide a diversity of recreational ac- tivities from sports, like the UT Runaround and the softball tourna- ment, to other recreational activities like the Haunted House. We provide students with a fun way to spend their leisure time. " The Haunted House, held Oct. 27- 28, 1983, provides thrills and chills for children and adults alike. The committee members transformed the Union Programming Office into a house of horrors. One committee member added a touch of authenticity by hanging from the ceiling. There were also witches with couldrens and the traditional recrea- tion committee chainsaw room. On April 14, 300 people par- ticipated in the UT Runaround. The course included a 3.8 mile run around a course designed by the committee. Trophies were awarded in men ' s and women ' s divisions, according to age groups. A wheelchair division was also included. During the fall semester, the com- mittee sponsored " Lunch with the Coach. " Reinauer said, " Every Thursday, Coach Akers would show films and talk about the big plays.

" Could students have found leisure time, they could have watched up to 30 movies a week, courtesy of the Texas Union Film Committee. The committee tried " to provide diverse films to satisfy the tastes of people, " chairman Michael Houston said. " We have made more movies available. Earlier, we showed around 16 movies a week. With the opening of Hogg Auditorium, we can now show 28 movies a week, " Houston said. The committee did not concentrate on any one genre, but rather, developed thematic presentations. On Nov. 2, 1983, the committee sponsored " Halloween Hangover. " " We showed old, tacky, Halloween movies in the Union Ballroom, " Houston said. During the fall semester, Westerns were shown every Wednesday. In the Spring, " The Ten Best Movies " were selected by a group of critics, who slotted " The General, " " 2001: A Space Odyssey " and " Citizen Kane " to be shown. The committee also held the an- nual Academy Awards contest. Before the awards ceremony, ballots were given to students. The person who guessed closest to the actual win- ners received a pass to see 10 free movies. Uzma Siddiqi FIRST ROW: Christine Marie Bailey, Carla Marie Matherne, Kimberly J. Neunlist, Jill H.

Was it impossible for a non- drama major to express those hidden talents that never had a chance to come out? According to Dave Steakley, presi- dent of the Texas Union Theatre Committee, it was. The Theatre Committee chose 30 non-drama students at the beginning of each semester. The fall Cabaret Show, the only dinner theater format in Austin, entertained the Capitol city crowd. Oct. 29-31 and Nov. 4-6, the group presented " Fleshdunce, " a satire of the hit movie " Flashdance. " the main characters of the spoof, however, were Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Guests were given a chance to ex- perience an authentic 16th century event with the Madrigal Dinner held from Nov. 30-Dec. 4. " The guests were entertained by jugglers, wenches, jesters, fencers and mimes as well as having a 16th cen- tury meal, " Steakley said. Also, on March 23-24, the Theatre Committee presented " The Elephant Man, " the famous play about the legendary John Merrick. The Theatre Committee had en- joyed a very productive year with its dinners and shows. The committee opened many areas to its members, whether they anticipated theater careers or not.

" University theater lovers crowd- ed the Texas Union ' s Santa Rita Room in November, 1983, to en- joy the opening performance of a precedent-setting show. The " Harlem Revisited " dessert theater showcased the music of 1930s legends Duke Ellington, Billie Holli- day and Dinah Washington, and was a first foray into the performing arts by its sponsor, the Texas Union Afro- American Culture Committee. " We wanted to tackle a new type of entertainment for AACC, " Jamie Watson, coordinator of the produc- tion, said. Plans for the show materialized the previous Spring, when AACC members decided to improve on an entertainment concept originated by students at Prairie View A M University. Choreographer T. Michael Rambo, music director Peter Williams and writer Valerie Cassel were chiefly responsible for the for- mat and content of the show, which included a cabaret finale. According to committee chair Dar- rick Eugene, the group was very pleased by the production ' s manifestation of the committee ' s purpose, which was " to highlight Afro-American culture and to pre- sent it to the campus in a positive light. " AACC observed Black History Month in February, sponsoring a candlelight procession on campus Feb. 23. The march ended at the Texas Union Ballroom, where the committee presented a program en- titled " Voices of Change. " The program consisted of a slide show by Austin black photographer John Greenlow, the reading of win- ning essays from a city-wide " Words of Blackness " essay contest and a concert by the campus gospel choir, Innervisions of Blackness. Other activities sponsored by AACC during the month included a semi-formal dance, black films featured at the Texas Union Theater and a forum on minority student retention at The University.

' " CHICANO CULTURE COMMITTEE Wat the here the itest and a Welchoii, i included i titj student it) ' . The Texas Union Chicano Culture Committee of 1983-84 continued its efforts toward greater public awareness of Mexican- American history, art and music. Since the committee ' s inception in 1975, the group maintained the Chicano Culture Room on the fourth floor of the Texas Union Building as an exhibit of Mexican-American cultural information. CCC compiled two special exhibits entitled " Urban Development " and " Voting Behavior in the Southwest. " The Chicano Culture Room also serv- ed as a meeting place for the commit- tee and as a site for forums on Chicano culture. The committee ventured into the world of art with an exhibit called " A Child ' s View of Life. " The display oc- cupied the Texas Union Art Gallery in early May, 1984. The committee observed several Mexican holidays during the year. A Sept. 16 commemoration of Diez y Seis, Mexico ' s celebration of its in- dependence from Spain, included a forum with speakers from the Mex- ican Consulate in Austin. May 5 marked the anniversary of the 1862 expulsion of French in- vaders from Mexico. According to committee chair Arturo Flores, the Cinco de Mayo observance was a traditional commemoration of Chicano lifestyles. CCC and the Texas Tavern co- sponsored Chicano Night every other week. Tavern patrons danced and listened to salsa and Mexican music played by local bands. Flores said the committee rescheduled Chicano Night from Tuesday to Thursday due to public demand.

Anne Bartlett, committee chair, said, " The participants are forming their own opinions on the material that we are presenting to them. " The committee maintained its for- mat of symposiums and panel discus- sions throughout 1983-84, the third year of its operation. Bartlett said the committee strove to provide educa- tional programming for The Univer- sity community on social issues. A panel of University professors joined a representative from the Center for Battered Women to lead an Oct. 6 discussion entitled " Scream Silently: Someone Might Hear. " Both panel and audience were en- couraged to contribute and develop their thoughts on the media ' s role in the promotion of sexual abuse. Bartlett added that such participa- tion at committee programs fostered communication between professors, who served as panelists and speakers, and the students in attendance. HIC conducted a week-long sym- posium on prevalent medical con- cerns entitled " What ' s Up, Doc? " on Oct. 24-27. Daily programs addressed the topics of herpes, AIDS, eating disorders and alcohol abuse. Two programs undertaken in early February were a discussion by John Daly, associate professor of speech communication, on " The Changing Nature of Love, " and an analysis of " Love: Emotion, Myth and Metaphor, " conducted by professor of philosophy Robert Solomon, who had published an important work on the subject. Committee member Aarti Jain considered the " 1984 " program, co- sponsored by HIC and the Ideas and Interactions Committee, to be their largest 1984 production. The pro- gram, held the last week in March, involved students and faculty in " The committee maintained its format of symposiums and panel discussions. " discussions such as the impact of technology on the working class, fear in America, and the nuclear age. Mike Tucker FIRST ROW: Dana Virginia Lech, Anne Margaret Beauregard, Anne Bartlett.

" IDEAS INTERACTIONS Controversial academic policies, technological breakthroughs and social issues fueled the drive of the Texas Union Ideas and Interac- tions Committee to keep University students abreast of new developments in current events. The committee strove to promote political awareness among students in 1983-84 by inviting presidential candidates to speak on the UT campus. Former Senator George McGovern spoke to an audience of over 700 on Nov. 4 in the Texas Union Ballroom. An estimated 1,600 packed the Ballroom Nov. 21 to hear a speech by another candidate, the Rev. Jesse Jackson. I I continued its involvement in the political arena with programs focusing on the race for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Texas ' s John Tower. A February debate, which included front-runners Bob Krueger and Lloyd Doggett, revealed the can- didates ' views on foreign policy and militarization. These same can- didates voiced their opinions on domestic issues during an April program. Panelists for an Oct. 5 debate en- titled " Controversies About College Admissions Testing " included Stanley H. Kaplan, founder and director of Stanley H. Kaplan Educa- tional Centers. Both programs were part of the committee ' s monthly Great Debate series. Wallace said interaction between panelists and students had always been a high priority for the commit- tee. He also noted that committee members attained experience in organizing programs from beginning to end. He emphasized the oppor- tunities for members and non- members alike to meet professors and other participants in I I programm- ing. Mike Tucker FIRST ROW: Laura Elizabeth Lyle.

" Striving to maintain ethical stan- dards, the Texas Student Publications Board confronted new issues as it tried to solve old ones. " It ' s an ongoing struggle for ex- cellence, " Steve Rudner, TSP Board president, said. The board consisted of three students from the College of Com- munication and two elected from the general student body. The TSP general manager, two faculty members from the College of Communication, one faculty member from business administration and two professional journalists were the remaining voting members. Non-voting members included editors of the Cactus, Daily Texan and UTmost; the Daily Texan managing editor; the Students ' Association president; and a representative from the Dean of Students office. The board referred to the TSP Handbook to resolve disputes. " The goals of the handbook are professional, ethical journalism prac- tice and servicing our community in providing high-quality information, " Nancy Green, TSP general manager, said. The TSP Board set policies for the Daily Texan, Cactus, UTmost, the Official Directory and the School of Law yearbook, Peregrinus. " The TSP Board is really like the board of a corporation, " Rudner said. " It ' s the largest student publications board in the world. " As in past years, problems with sexism in advertising were not as prevalent, according to Green. The board received few complaints con- cerning advertising. Powers and duties of the editor of the Daily Texan emerged also as an issue to the board. TSP members debated whether the Texan editor should be appointed or elected. Rudner said, " The TSP Board reached a pretty fair compromise. We tightened the qualifications for editor, assuring that any candidate has the journalistic and managerial qualifications to be editor. " Editor elections were just one priority of TSP. " The TSP Board also has an educational duty, " Rudner said. He added, " We try to provide the best facilities so that students that go into journalism will be as prepared as they can possibly be.

' ' 4 4 FT! he 1984 Cactus set the pace J_ for future editions during The University ' s second century, " Jerry Thompson, supervisor of non- daily publications, said. Michelle Washer, editor-in-chief of the book, said the 1984 edition con- tained twice the amount of color photography found in recent edi- tions, noting that on-the-scene action photography accurately represented student life at The University. Reporting by over 60 staffers ex- plored UT events such as the year ' s rash of fraternity house fires and the dispute over whether UT course credit should be given to student in- terns in political campaigns. Writers also strove to capture the daily spirit and activity at The University. Delia de Lafuente, one of three copy editors, said student organizations and events were ex- plored in terms of their contributions and relevance to UT students. A spinoff from the traditional Features section of the Cactus was Spotlight, which emphasized Erwin Center, Performing Arts Center and Department of Drama events. Dave Carlin, Spotlight editor, said the wealth of performing and visual arts at UT warranted major attention by the Cactus. The number of pages dedicated to coverage of entertain- ment and art on campus almost doubled that of past editions. As The University ' s yearbook ad- viser, Thompson was one of 13 media advisers in the nation to receive the 1983 Columbia Scholastic Press Association Certificate of Merit. The award commended Thompson for his work on Cactus and Peregrinus, the yearbook of the UT School of Law. Thompson received the award at the CSPA convention March 10-18 in New York, which he attended along with seven members of the Cactus editorial staff. Five staff members attended the Associated Collegiate Press conven- tion Nov. 2-5 in Chicago, where the 1983 Cactus was designated Ail- American, an award reserved for the top 7 percent of college yearbooks.

According to Lindsey, the Texan staff prided itself on its ability to produce a high-quality publication. " I think we are one of the top five newspapers in the country, con- sistently, " Lindsey said. Lindsey also stated the quality of the Texan challenged the Austin American Statesman. " I think we have a better presentation of the news as far as graphics, layout and at- tractivenness of the pages goes, " Lindsey said. " We do compete with the Statesman in the University area for several reasons, " Linsey said. " We do cover the University better because that ' s our concentration and people can pick up our paper free, " he added. The Texan won several awards from journalism orgaizations. The Texan received honors from Sigma Delta Chi - - The Soicity of Profes- sional Journalists, the Texas Inter- collegiate Press Association and the Associated Collegiate Press. The William Randolph Hearst Foundation also gave awards to the Texan for nationally outstanding stories and editorial . In addition to Lindsey, the Texan was guided by Roger Campell, editor; Kector Cantu, Tracy Duncan, Eddie Perkins and Herb Beneson, associate managing editors. Lindsey emphasiced the impor- tance of maintaining a sense of humor while working the Texan.

Gregor termed the magazine a " confidence-builder " for campus pencil pushers and photo finishers. UTmost ' s service to readers as well as writers earned it one of only two Gold Crown awards given to college magazines by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in 1984. The Fall 1983 issue included " A Question of Ethics, " an overview of The University ' s investments in South Africa. The article informed readers of the growing objection both at The University and nation- wide to South African racial segregation, apartheid, while outlin- ing student efforts to influence UT System officials to withdraw founds from companies supporting the government of South Africa. Other fall features were " It ' s Gon- na Take a Miracle, " in which UT- most explored the organizational structure catapulting UT Christian groups to political prominence on campus and " Reflections of a Washington Intern, " which described one UT student ' s Capitol experiences in the bureaucratic process. The spring issue of UTmost, edited by Flavia Ferrin, contained the an- nual roster of " Barbecued Bevo Awards, " which touted 43 of the year ' s most embarrassing faux pas for the amusement of the magazine ' s readership. Also offered was an ob- jective view of The University ' s Centennial celebration entitled " See- ing Orange, " which compared UT development priorities with those of other " first-class " American univer- sities.

Philip Barr, staff member and photographer for Peregrinus, said the book concentrated on activities outside the classroom. Photographers documented events from the " Fall Drunk " a Halloween costume par- ty to the re-enactment of the first UT School of Law class, which com- memorated UT ' s Centennial. The Peregrinus also featured the retirement of Associate Dean T. J. Gibson and Dean John Sutto n ' s return to the classroom. Gibson plan- ned to tour Europe at the end of his 30 years with the school, while Button planned to resume his research, writing and teaching. Foster said law school students took many more photographs for the 1984 Peregrinus than for past edi- tions, giving the book a distinct, very personal student perspective.

" Student government in general has been very effective, " said Mitch Kreindler, Association president. The year began with many changes in the organization ' s structure. " Three of the 10 original commit- tees were merged into existing com- mittees, " said Trevor Pearlman, Association vice president. Once committees were set, they tackled everything from shuttle bus contracts to a textbook exchange program. The Citizens Affairs Committee, headed by Ridge Miller, set up a voter registration drive during April on the West Mall. One of the Association ' s most ac- tive committees, Student Services, was led by Rodney Schlosser, liberal arts senator. Working closely with the Student Services Fee Committee and the Texas Student Lobby on Student Services, this committee was respon- sible for studying agencies funded by the student services fee. " We did in-depth research on agencies requesting money from the student services fee, and then made recommendations to the Fee Com- mittee, " Schlosser said. Shuttle bus routes were monitored in April 1984 as part of a study to strengthen the shuttle system. The SURE program was also a responsibility of this committee. Dur- ing the Spring, committee members proposed that the program become a separate agenc y - - funded by the Student Services Fee. LBJ School of Public Affairs senator Diane Friday chaired the Consumer Affairs Committee. Besides creating banking and hous- ing guides and recycling newspapers, they set up a student textbook ex- change program. Known as STEP, the program began in January 1984.

The Minority Affairs Committee, led by Leslie Piland, focused on issues such as recruitment and reten- tion of black, Hispanic and interna- tional students. Ed Scheibler led committee members in examining other issues dealing with The University, such as the parking problem, East Austin ex- pansion and academic affairs.

" We were able to plan projects with the ideas we got from the other schools, " Nancy Isaacson, cabinet vice president, said. Selecting UT students for Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities was only a part of the cabinet ' s responsibilities. For the first time, faculty and staff members, as well as the dean of students, were in- cluded in the choosing of the Who ' s Who students. In the past, only students were allowed to participate in the selection. During the Fall, the cabinet spon- sored a reception for new faculty members. As in the past, the cabinet publish- ed the Student Guide to Courses and Instructors. The guide, which ap- peared in the Daily Texan each semester before pre-registration, gained a new format, making it easier to use. The guide helped students to chose classes, professors and textbooks for courses. Waddell said in addition to the other programs, the cabinet, in con- junction with the Ex-Students ' Association, awarded the Texas Ex- cellence in Teaching Awards. The awards were unique because the students nominated, voted and presented the awards, Waddell said. In early May, 1984, TETAs were given to one person in each of the col- leges to " show them how much they are appreciated, " Waddell said.

During CBA Week, the council of- fered various seminars Feb. 13-17, 1984. One of the seminars was given by Sherry Lansing, a past president for 20th Century Fox. During April, the CBA Student Council offered an interview workshop which helped business students look for summer jobs.

Laughing, singing, and dancing ... is it the drama department? No, it ' s the Graduate Business Ad- ministration Student Council " put- tin " on the Ritz " and having a folly good time. On March 31, 1984, in Hogg Auditorium, the GBC presented the third annual Follies, a spoof and roast showing the humorous side of graduate students and f aculty members. Peyton Burch, GBC president, said the council was responsible for in- volving students and helping them meet their fellow students. Burch felt it was important students get to know each other through the dif- ferent social events and activities which the GBC planned. " Fireside Chats " with Dean William Cunningham, " Think V Drinks " and intramural team sports provided outlets outside academics. The GBC stressed academics. Stu- dent members maintained a 3.0 G.P.A. while taking an average of 12 hours per semester. Representatives from the council worked closely with administrators and faculty, discussing various re- quirements that could be added to admission applications. " The GBC would like to see some sort of essay on a topic such as life goals or why they are choosing graduate school, " Burch said. " This would give both The Univer- sity and the prospective student an advantage, " he added. If a student does not quite have the academic scores needed, then the essay would provide a way for the student to gain lost points. " " In another view the University would be able to tell if a person is really seriously seeking a graduate degree, " Burch said. The GBC organized symposiums with such notable speakers as San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros and Buck Rogers of IBM. Wendy Wilkins Graduate Business Council 247 COMMUNICATION COUNCIL ' Enriching the academic experience of students within the College of Communication. " The Communication Council raised $10,000 in 1983, making it the first UT organization to establish an endowed scholarship for communication students. The majority of scholarship funds were raised through support of com- munication council alumni and were matched by The University, Eleanor Waddell, council president, said. An advisory group, consisting of 30 members from various communica- tion professions, was formed to create academic advising guidelines and to provide student internships. The discovery of a 1972 survey assessing student opinions of the col- lege led to the development of a new survey. During Fall, 1983, a new Col- lege Attitude Survey was given to communication students to analyze current opinions of the college and the work of the council. A distinguished speakers series brought speakers, scholars and other media professionals to the campus each semester, Waddell said. To gain more recognition for " top talent coming out of the college, " Waddell said the council featured top names in the annual Communication Week, April 9-14. Karen Elliott House, a Wall Street Journal cor- respondent and Bud Mims, with Business Week, headed up the week ' s activities. Helen Thomas, a United Press In- ternational correspondent, received the 1984 DeWitt Carter Reddick Award, given to an outstanding com- munication professional each year. In addition to Communication Week, the 17-year-old council formed a professional network to help students obtain internships. The Communicator, the council ' s newsletter, abandoned its earlier feature style and printed college organization and administration an- nouncements on a monthly basis. Besides informing students about the college ' s happenings, the council provided a " more structured form of academic advising, " Waddell said. Information from the professional advisory group was compiled and published to let students know what communications professionals looked for, coursewise, from prospective employees.

" EDUCATION COUNCIL The Education Council believed in the buddy system and they proved it to education students and children alike. Council members beginning in the Fall, 1983, were paired with educa- tion students interested in a buddy program. Tommy Koog, council copresident, said the buddy system was one of the ways the council pull- ed all education students together. " It ' s hard to get to know other education students because of the fragmentation in education studies, " Koog said. " The different sequences have us spread out all over campus. " The 25-member council experienc- ed being buddies to children during Halloween. Through the Student Council Exceptional Children ' s pro- gram, members were matched with special education children from the community and guided them through the Texas Union ' s haunted house. In an effort to help all education students, the council handed out literature, answered questions and referred students to advisers during pre-registration periods. Coffees with Dean Lorrin Ken- namer and socials filled out the coun- cil ' s calendar. As a prelude to the new teacher competency exam being ad- ministered to graduating education students, the council sought to in- form students about it. Marvin Veselka, with the Texas Education Association, told students about the new requirement. He was one of the speakers brought to cam- pus by the council. In April, the council printed an idea booklet. For the first time, a booklet published by the council con- tained model lesson plans for all sub- jects and areas. " It was something useful for all education majors, " Koog said. " It showed them what kind of lesson plans were expected in upper division courses. " The council, chosen by an applica- tion and interview process each semester, was responsible for selec- ting outstanding teachers. The Outstanding Student Teacher award was broadened to accept ap- plications from the fall semester. Formerly, it was mainly a spring award, Koog said. In addition to the student award, the council also selected a professor for the Texas Excellence in Teaching Award in the Spring.

Education Council 249 FINE ARTS STUDENT COUNCIL " The purpose of our council is to make the accomplishments of fine arts students known On the east side of campus, the College of Fine Arts was striv- ing to make itself better known to The University ' s general populace. Helping to accomplish this task was the Fine Arts Student Council. " The College of Fine Arts is isolated from the majority of The University, " council president Amy Mohwinkel said. " The purpose of our council is to make the ac- complishments of the fine arts students known to students of other disciplines, " she said. The council was composed of and promoted unity among students from each of the departments of the col- lege: art, drama and music. One service provided by the coun- cil was " Faculty Firesides, " mixers open to all university students held at the home of a faculty member. The professors led casual discussions on topics of interest to students. Charles Roeckle, assistant dean of fine arts, talked to the students about erotica in music when he hosted a Faculty Fireside. Professor Bernie Engel opened his home to students and spoke about his experiences directing " The Guard- sman, " a Department of Drama production. Working on the idea that students do not often get the chance to know the dean, the Fine Arts Student Council also planned activities with the dean, J. Robert Wills. For instance, the council sponsored " Doughnuts with the Dean, " " Brown bag it with the Dean " as well as cof- fees and seminars. The council published a monthly newsletter, Fine Lines, which inform- ed students about happenings in each of the departments of the College. " It is hard for students to keep up because they are so busy. Their work is never finished; it can always be better, " Mohwinkel said.

' NATURAL SCIENCE COUNCIL voice-activated computer was one scientific innovation demonstrated at the Technology Fair, a Natural Sciences Council sponsored event held Nov. 10-11, 1983, in the Academic Center lobby. Representatives from science-related corporations including IBM, Texas Instruments and Motorola attended with their latest achievements. " We try to get companies in- terested in research to participate so students can see where science is presently, " said Harold Dodd, coun- cil president. Dodd said Austin was lucky to be a research-oriented community and home for companies such as IBM and Motorola. Natural Sciences Week was observ- ed April 11-13, 1984. The NSC in- vited the student body to visit their college and hear faculty members speak on topics exemplifying the relationship between science and to- day ' s society. John Wheeler spoke about " Risk in Society " and Les Kurtz gave his views on the " Nuclear Age. " The council, along with the Department of English, sponsored the Gordon-Mills Memorial Lecture, which focused on the similarities of natural science and liberal arts. The lecture featured Maynard Smith, who talked about " Science and Myth. " The Natural Sciences Council selected five outstanding teachers from a group nominated by students in the college. These teachers receiv- ed the $1,500 stipend of the Natural Science Foundation ' s Teaching Ex- cellence Award and the $1,000 Texas Exes award at the annual Awards Brunch on April 14. The NSC prided itself on its ability to interact with students, Dodd said. " The council has two seats on the College Course and Curriculum Com- mittee which have direct input on the requirements set for achieving a degree in natural science.

" is has been a year of look- ing inward, of trying to get more results with what we have rather than starting new things, " Liberal Arts Council president Coby Chase said. Chase characterized the group ' s procedures in promoting the liberal arts during 1983-84 as " in- credibly updated. " Recognition of the need for com- munication between faculty and students prompted the council to form a committee of the whole for faculty interaction. The council ' s monthly newsletter, the L.A. Times, emphasized high quality and newsworthiness for its 1983-84 articles. All members stepped up their in- quiry into The University ' s in- novative publications and research in the liberal arts. Stories describing the routines of each department in the College of Liberal Arts were replaced by news of academic breakthroughs. The October 1983 issue informed instudents of the success of a first- class journal of German literature published by Leslie Willson, pro- fessor of German at The University, and of the election of Janet Spence, Ashbel Smith professor of psychology, as president-elect of the American Psychological Association.

Pharmacy was not as over- whelming as my initial arrival at UT; I sensed the small college atmosphere and the close-knit feeling right away, " said Christine Schumacher, pharmacy junior. Schumacher, who transferred to The University in 1983, joined other new students in the pharmacy pro- gram for a special orientation to the College of Pharmacy Aug. 24. The coordinators of the program were members of the Pharmacy Council. They congratulated new students on their accomplishments to date and gave them a glimpse of pharmacy education. Council president Daniel Brown said the program was designed to enhance the unique esprit de corps among pharmacy students and facul- ty by integrating new students into the college as soon as possible. Associate Dean Victor Yanchick and Director of Professional Affairs Arlyn Kloesel briefed the students on the organization of the college. Representatives of the six preprofessional organizations within the college explained their purposes and activities. A group of professors performed skits depicting their specializations in pharmacy. The council sponsored its annual Parents ' Day April 7 to showcase the academic, professional and social aspects of the college. Brown said faculty, administrators and students welcomed over 300 parents. The council presented an orienta- tion program and slide show for the parents in Burdine Auditorium. Parents also witnessed pharmacy professors in action in a series of sam- ple lectures. Council members conducted tours of the old and new wings of the Phar- macy Building, including the Univer- sity Pharmacy, the college library and the learning resource center. According to Victor Canales, phar- macy senior, the Pharmacy Council served the college best by promoting student-faculty interaction. In 1983-84 the council held soft- ball, racquetball, golf and tennis tournaments for students and pro- fessors, fireside discussions at faculty members ' homes and a student- teacher picnic. The council publicized a student- faculty retreat March 22 with the Texas Pharmaceutical Association. Here the future pharmacists and their professors discussed current issues of the pharmacy profession. Brown said the retreat provided students an opportunity to offer their own feedback on pharmacy educa- tion.

ENGINEERING COUNCIL Everyone in engineering is always backstabbing, " said Patty Mueller, chemical engineering stu- dent, supporting the rumor that it was an extremely competitive field. But the purpose of the Student Engineering Council was to " en- courage engineering students to pur- sue it actively as a career, " Mike Cole, president, said. " As a study, engineering can become mundane. Through interac- tions with engineers and other people, we can become more sensitive to society and communicate our ideas to people in nontechnical aspects, " Cole said. The Enginneering Exposition, held Oct. 5-6, 1983, at Anna Hiss Gym- nasium, included 29 companies, such as Lockheed Missiles, Space Co., Inc. and Tandem Computers. Beginning Feb. 20, 1984, National Engineers Week and Convocation featured engineering activities. Speakers from industries such as Texas Instruments and IBM spoke to engineering classes. The group held fall and spring beer busts to give students and faculty chances to socialize. On Feb. 25, the group sponsored an Engineering Ball in the Texas Union Ballroom for all engineering and nursing students. In late Spring, the group held a pic- nic in Pease Park. About 650 students and faculty members enjoyed a chariot race for which each depart- ment sponsored five people in a chariot they had designed. " It ' s a nice end-of-the-year type of thing when finals are about to hit, " Cole said. Although engineering involved competitive students, the council pro- vided support. Regarding his speech at summer orientation, Cole said, " I wanted to go up there and make a point from the student ' s perspective. Yes it ' s tough, but you can make it.

Commuting from Georgetown daily, Ombudsman Kim Mickelson came for more than her 10-hour load in law-public affairs graduate work. She also concerned herself with 2,500 students ' prob- lems, including grade and final exam disputes and financial aid difficulties. " The idea in this office is that we ' re neutral -- not administrators or students, but since we are students, we have a natural empathy for them, " Mickelson said. Mickelson discussed the most cur- rent and common situations, such as midterm concerns and the misuse of ID cards, in her weekly column in The Daily Texan. The Outreach Committee sup- ported the Ombudsman by working as a fact-finding group. The 23 student members were composed of a " wide variety of majors and ages, " Outreach president Donna Zinke said. The group publicized the Om- budsman by making posters and giv- ing speeches to classes. They also researched problems. " From working on the committee, you get a good idea of how things work at UT and an insight to the ad- ministrative set-up, so if you yourself have a problem, you know where to go, " Zinke said.

" People think of UT as being impersonal, and orientation gives you the personal side, " advisor LeJuene Embry said. During orientation, advisors presented the play " Orientation to Orientation, " led nightly wing meetings to explain preregistration and campus life, and participated in a range of optional programs. " One of their most important tasks was academic pre-advising, " faculty advisor John Ragle said. Advisors counciled each student about the course catalog, degree requirements and class schedules. To be chosen an advisor, students participated in group interviews which determined who would be in- terviewed individually. Important traits included good communication skills, open- mindedness, common sense and assertiveness.

Orientation Advisors 267 FEATURE: FRANCES BRADY Frances Brady didn ' t have a dull moment in her 12 years as Kin- solving North head resident and an- ticipated none in her years ahead. Brady said watching Kinsolving girls learn and mature each year in the dormitory community was her favorite aspect of the job. Brady helped Kinsolving residents get involved on campus by arranging for many of them to usher at Perfor- ming Arts Center events and to sit together in the flashcard section at Longhorn football games. Brady, an Austin area native, honored family tradition by atten- ding The University, earning a B.S. in physical education in 1938. As a student she was active in the women ' s golf club, YWCA and the Littlefield Advisory. The UT campus was quite dif- ferent when Brady attended. The Texas Union, the Tower and Gregory Gym were brand new. Brady remembered strolling on the Tower observation deck in the late 1930s, since it was then open to the public. Brady said the Drag hadn ' t changed much, except for the absence of the Guadalupe streetcar and the YMCA. As head resident, Brady followed collegiate sports with great interest and kept up her own exercise regimen, which included swimming, bowling and golf. A consistent Longhorn fan and a permanent fix- ture at UT football and Lady Longhorn basketball games, she understated, " I go to the games when I can. " Her favorite memory of a Longhorn game was the football team ' s 14-12 victory over Alabama in the 1982 Cotton Bowl. Brady ' s spirit was evident in her role as sponsor of Phi Beta Kinsolv- ing, a scholastic honor society for Kinsolving residents, and Spooks, a women ' s service and spirit organization. " I like the Spooks because the girls are so spirited, or ' fired up ' as they say, " Brady said. Mike Tucker Kingpin of Kinsolving Frances Brady, Kinsolving ' s Head Resident, compiles the honor roll for Phi Beta Kinsolving. 258 Feature j ' URHA was the ideal link between residents and dorm councils. RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION Dust Hew as brooms swept wildly across the musty basement floor of the Men ' s Residence Hall recreation room. The largest student organization finally had an office. The University Residence Hall Association, formed in 1978, moved into the old Texas Union administra- tion offices in November. " We ' re relieved to get a place to work out of, " president Cheryl Stein said. All 5,300 residents of UT dor- mitories were automatically members of URHA, making it the largest stu- dent organization on campus. Representatives from each dorm made up the association ' s 36-member legislative council. The URHA Programming Com- mittee, responsible for scheduling guest speakers and workshops, spon- sored a Residence Hall Leadership Workshop in September. Speakers instructed dorm leaders in subjects ranging from planning a party to counseling residents. Burger burns, parties and dances filled the Social Committee ' s agenda. The annual Residence Hall Awards Ban quet was held in April, to honor outstanding residents and recognize the Residence Hall of the Year. In addition to planning fund rais- ing projects, the Finance Committee purchased two stereo speakers to rent to residence halls. Residents with complaints or ques- tions were channeled through the Policy and Procedures Committee, which served as the liaison to the Division of Housing. URHA members traveled to the University of Houston to attend the Texas Residence Hall Association Convention in February, 1984. Since the organization was fairly new, URHA printed a brochure and distributed it throughout dorms. Stein said URHA was the ideal link between residents and the dorm councils. She said the group ' s goal was to sponsor the state residence hall convention in two years. Kathy Thornton FIRST ROW: Cheryl Rae Stein, Robert Wallace Briscoe, Eva Rosanne Avelar.

But for others, " Andrews dorm has always been considered to be a hallway between Blanton and Carothers. It really didn ' t have an identity, " Andrews Advisory presi- dent Laura Sells said. This year, in an attempt to be recognized, the advisory cosponsored parties with men ' s dorms. At the Gangster Party held on Feb. 3, 1984, the walls were decorated with outlines of dead bodies in masking tape. Residents dressed in wide- brimmed hats and pin-striped suits and carried fake machine guns. Sells said, " The advisory serves as the dorm leaders and the dorm government. We do social programm- ing and make sure everybody knows about Andrews ' rules and regula- tions. We are responsible for enforc- ing them. " One of the most popular functions was the slumber party held at the beginning of the spring semester. The advisors rented video cassette recorder movies and made popcorn for the all-night television marathon. The dorm residents performed a service project for the Mary Lee Foundation, a home for abused children. They had a Halloween party with the children and a costume contest was held. At Christmas, the children made ornaments for the Andrews ' Christmas tree. They also crafted a latch-hook lion. At Easter, the residents and the children met again to play soccer and softball at a cookout. Sells believed that the advisory had accomplished their goals, and ad- ded, " I think we all functioned well together. Everybody helped everybody. " Uzma Siddiqi FIRST ROW: Regan Lucille Wilson.

" A " home-like " atmosphere was how Cindi Bynum, Blanton advisors president, described the special feeling shared by all Blanton residents. To help create this special feeling, the advisors provided many activities for the dorm residents as well as involving themselves with various service projects. The 25 advisors sponsored many activities for their residents throughout the year. A " School ' s a Beach " party, cosponsored with Brackenridge-Roberts, brought everyone out in their beach attire. To show their appreciation, the Blanton women planned a surprise birthday party for Mary Lou Dieterich, Blanton head resident. In addition, the advisors planned special visits to the Rebekah Baines Johnson Retirement Home once in September, 1983, and again during the Christmas holidays. There they played games, served refreshments and had a sing-a-long with the residents. " One of the main purposes of the dorm is to be involved in ser- vice projects, " Bynum said. Many fund raising events filled Blanton ' s calendar, including Daily Texan inserts, T-shirt sales and the Blanton Babe Auction, where the girls were " bought " by male residents from Prather and Brackenridge- Roberts dormitories in exchange for doing odd jobs. " The first slave sale was fun and it went over really well, " Bynum said. During the spring semester, 1984, Blanton women and their guests en- joyed a semi-formal dance at the Hilton Hotel in Austin. " Blanton feels like home, and we want to keep it special and small so that every girl who lives here feels im- portant, " Bynum said.

" Opening the door to see a lobby filled with girls talking and laughing, visitors at Carothers quick- ly felt the " welcome " atmosphere. " I think it ' s homier and the people are closer than at most dorms, " Julie Orr, social chairman, said. " The smallness of the dorm helped everyone get involved and get together. It would have been difficult to have done this in a larger dorm, " president Amy Hitter said. The five officers, 10 wing represen- tatives and two resident assistants promoted this close atmosphere. They began early in the year to welcome the 120 residents. " The officers come early and try to chat and help the residents feel at home, " treasurer Susan Martin said. The government members con- tinued to involve the residents throughout the year in activities from wing parties to guest speakers. " Carothers is really good with varie- ty. We show movies and even have educational activities, " Martin said. For Halloween the government members invited about 40 children from Austin ' s Big Brother-Big Sister Program to a party. Their Christmas party was an in- formal gathering for the residents. " It ' s just a nice time to sit around, chat and listen to Christmas music, " Orr said. Residents also ushered events such as " Fiddler on the Roof, " " Mass Ap- peal " and " Greater Tuna. " From sponsoring RASSL informa- tion to throwing parties, members of Carothers ' government kept the residents busy. " We have activities to get all the residents involved, " Mar- tin said.

" DOBIE RAs ounselors, cops and friends, " director Kathy Biggers said of the Dobie Center resi- dent advisors. From planning parties to settling the residents ' disputes, the 13 RAs worked to keep the residents happy. " The RAs are here to help in- troduce the residents to each other and to help them have a good time, " program coordinator Michelle Altman said. Major parties included a Hallo- ween party and Casino night. Casino Night was the highlight of the dorm ' s year. Held at the Sheraton Crest on Jan. 28, the event gave students a chance to gamble with paper money, dance and participate in an auction. Besides contributing to these larger parties, each RA was required to plan four functions each semester for their two floors. Themes included a pajama party, " Animal House, " and an assassin party. The RAs responsibilities extended to more than throwing parties, however. They also formed five com- mittees to improve life at Dobie. The food service committee consisted of a representative from each floor who gathered feedback about the food and reported findings to the dining council. The special events committee plan- ned outside activities for the residents, including- a trip to Wurstfest. The campus information committee made people more aware of events occurring on campus. The intramurals committee held Dobie-wide c ontests ranging from volleyball to backgammon. Besides carrying out these special duties, the RAs were simply there to listen and advise residents when needed. " I was surprised by how much people come to the RAs, " RA Judy Sachs said. Although being an RA required an abundance of time and dedication, according to Sachs, " the residents make it worthwhile. " Leah Fowler FIRST ROW: Janet Marie Miller, Jocelyn Wanda L.

Dobie RAa 266 CASTILIAN ADVISORS " RAs made an effort to entertain residents by providing a variety of activities. ' The Castilian, a dormitory at the corner of 24th and San Antonio streets, got a facelift in 1983. The 22-story dorm did not look any different on the outside the covered parking garage and swimm- ing pool were still there. The facelift came with major renovations of public living areas in the dorm. Head resident Bill Boschma said that along with those renovations came a new enthusiastic attitude among residents. " The new management is building a new image for the dorm and the residents are beginning to respect it more, " he said. More than $150,000 was spent remodeling hallways, installing modern lounge furniture and pur- chasing new equipment for the weight room. With all the changes taking place, the dorm ' s 12 resident assistants helped the 714 residents adjust to dorm living. Besides giving dorm tours, working the lobby desk and supervising residents on their floors, RAs also worked with maintenance and housekeeping staffs. In addition, RAs did most of the work on special events. One of the year ' s biggest special events was the Casino Night in February, 1984. Poker, craps, roulette and bingo games filled the evening, concluding with a 2 a.m. breakfast. Residents were given play money for the games and were able to buy prizes with that money at the end of the evening. In the same spirit, the first-ever Derby Night was held in November. Actual horse races were recorded, and residents bet on the races before the tapes were played. Prizes, in- cluding a color TV, were awarded at the end of the night. Boschma said the Derby Night was so successful it will be repeated again next year. Another of the special events plan- ned by the RAs was a fashion show. Cosponsored by Yaring ' s, the show was open to women from the Castilian and on-campus dorms. Twelve models were chosen to show two outfits each. Yaring ' s held a make-up clinic and offered a $200 door prize. Being a predominantly male dorm, the fashion show was designed to at- tract more women to the Castilian. A " best legs " contest in December raised funds for Operation Blue San- ta, an Austin program for needy families. Photos of the legs of one woman and one man per floor were put on jars in the dorm ' s lobby. Residents voted for the best pair of legs by putting money in the jars of their choice. Castle Watch, the dorm ' s monthly magazine, was another responsibility of the RAs. The tabloid printed stories helpful to residents while keeping them aware of upcoming activities.

Castilian residents play video games in the game room. Many of those who live in Castilian take advantage of having a weight room at their disposal whenever the need arises to get in shape. Castilian Advisers 267 JESTER STUDENT ASSEMBLY ' Jester Center should be everything a student needs within 10 steps of the dorm. " The idea that Jester Center should be " everything a student needs within 10 steps " of the dorm became the goal of the 1983-84 Jester Student Assembly, according to Ed Johnson, the group ' s president. The JSA worked toward that goal through various activities sponsored by four committees. The Special Events Committee kicked off each semester with cour- tyard dances. For the first time, a Halloween Courtyard Dance was held. Themes of horror and comedy fill- ed weekends with big-screen TV movies sponsored by the Film Com- mittee. Movies, such as " Flashdance, " " An American Werewolf in London " and " All That Jazz, " were free to the residents. Trips to San Antonio to see the ballet and to Magnolia, near Houston, for the Texas Renaissance Festival were planned by the Multi- Cultural Committee. This group con- centrated on giving residents oppor- tunities to see more of the fine arts. " They helped to bring more culture to the dorm, " Johnson said. In another first for JSA, they were freed from responsibility for food ser- vice. Instead, they focused on hous- ing. The Housing Committee made the dorm environment more har- monious and helped cut down on vandalism by sponsoring mural pain- ting contests and making alcohol awareness programs available. JSA had an identity problem in the dorm because residents did not know what purpose the organization serv- ed. " There are many things we did that students didn ' t even know were sponsored by us, " Johnson said. Even though there was an identity problem, Johnson said the group made progress in promoting the dorm. JSA strived to make Jester " a place students would want to live in, " Johnson said.

" LITTLEFIELD DORM ADVISORY On 26th and Whitis, a little com- munity lived at Littlefield Dor- mitory, sharing the frightening ex- periences of being a freshman at the University of Texas. Helping the freshmen in their first year away from home were the Lit- tlefield advisors. Advisor Wendy Listiak said, " One of the most rewarding things about being an advisor is getting to know the girls on my hall and trying to help them during their first year away from home. " The 17 advisors, when not advising or aiding, kept themselves busy with activities for both themselves and residents. To help keep their mind off work some of the time, the Littlefield ad- visors held a semi-formal in December and a formal in April. Also, during mid-terms and finals, the ad- visors had " Study Buddies " for themselves and the residents. " Study Buddies are secret pals dur- ing mid-terms and finals, " Julie McBee, advisor president said. " You draw a name and then send gifts to that person during the week. Then, at the end of the week, there is a party to meet your study buddy, " she said. To raise money for the dorm fund, the advisors sponsored car washes, dollar runs races to see which hall could collect the most money the fastest and newspaper stuffing. The dorm fund helped pay for parties for the residents during the year. During the fall semester, the residents and the advisors helped to start the Kim Coffin Memorial Fund, in memory of Kimberly Coffin, freshman chemical engineering ma- jor, a resident who was killed in an automobile accident Sept. 10. " Being an advisor is more work than I thought. I ' ve never been in- volved in such a close organization before. I ' m glad I am, " McBee said.

All the residents pitched in and helped with the festivities by decorating and of- fering goodies to all the goblins. " The party is the organization ' s biggest ef- fort of the year, " Eric Folkerth, dorm vice president, said. The dorm government was com- posed of 25 members, representing more than 350 residents. Besides organizing the Halloween party, they planned activities for the year, in- cluding their spring formal. In November, members helped organize a blood drive with other campus dormitories. Folkerth said the blood drive was very successful, with Moore-Hill donating the most blood. Wendy Wilkins RESIDENT ASSISTANTS: FIRST ROW: Paul Blaine Deschner.

Funds from the party were donated to Austin ' s Ronald McDonald House, a home for families whose children have cancer. During the year, workshops on time management and a cardiopulmonary resuscitation class were offered. Along with other residence halls, Prather donated blood during Blood Drive Week in November. Prather ' s biggest activity was " Wild Willie Week " in May. The festivities were a salute to former University president William L. Prather, the dorm ' s namesake. Prather had the highest return rate of all dorms on campus. The dorm ' s success was due to Prather ' s laid back atmosphere. The goal of the dorm government was to make living easier, and provide recreation and educational activities for the residents. Wendy Wilkins RO W: Marvin Wade Berlin, Rodney Wayne Sowar ds.

" Being the only UT dorm with its own creek, front lawn and parking lot, Simkins Hall residents believed they lived in " the off- campus dorm, " according to Tom Lux, Simkins resident assistant. Due to the secluded location of the dormitory building, Simkins gained a " country club " image in the eyes of non-residents. With a " C " parking lot convenient- ly located behind the dorm, " Don ' t walk drive! " became a dorm mot- to, Lux said. " Residents drive everywhere, " he said. The dorm council involved residents in community projects such as cleaning Waller Creek and raising money for charities. In the Men ' s Residence Hall blood drive Simkins had the highest percentage of residents donating. At Halloween, residents joined Littlefield Dor- mitory to sponsor a Haunted House for the handicapped. The eighth annual Casino Night drew 450 people, John Greytok, dorm president said. Participants bought tickets and received " roach bucks. " This play money, named after the dorm ' s mascot -- the cockroach was spent at the crap table, roulette wheel, poker and blackjack games. Following casino activities, winners cashed in their " roach bucks " and participated in an auction. Items for bid included beer, theater tickets, and restaurant dinners. The council, elected in the fall by residents, sponsored the annual " Roach Olympix. " The spring Olympix commenced with a torch lighting ceremony. Games included an egg toss and a balloon stomping contest. A burger burn followed the games, as well as the crowning of Miss Roach, a women ' s residence hall resident. Golf, Frisbee golf and tennis tournaments within the men ' s residence halls, as well as a road rally and formal filled the social calendar. The formal, held in early April, was the largest ever for the dorm. Residents celebrated at the Bradford Hotel to the tunes of numerous bands and flowing champagne to top off the year.

Instead of searching endlessly for a " C " parking space or timing their lives around the shuttle bus routes, many found on-campus living conve- nient. On the northwest side of cam- pus, many women found the Univer- sity Women ' s Co-Ops offering a uni- que way of life. " It ' s easy to get lost in a large university like this, " Laurel Ranck, co-op manager, said. One way to deal with this situation was the at- mosphere the co-ops provided. Ranck said the co-ops had many advantages over dormitories. They offered a personal touch because the 212 residents worked together to make the co-ops a great place tolive. Managers were elected to assign duties and conduct housing meetings once a month to keep the residents informed. Residents were required to work at least five or six hours a week cooking, cleaning and maintaining the building. On Oct. 16, 1983, the co-ops hosted their annual Chili Cook-Off. " They competed with off campus co-ops. The cook-off was a success, with a country and western band and danc- ing as the highlight of the event, " Ranck said. " The co-ops were a way in which the residents could live economically and semi-independent. Living in the co-ops presented new and memorable experiences for all, " Ranck said.

POLITICAL PURSUITS he San Antonio Light published an article in March 1984 charging that University of Texas System schools were " violating state law by allowing students to participate in in- ternship programs offered by candidates seeking public office. According to the article, state law prohibits state programs from being used to " affect the result of an election ... of a candidate or to achieve any other political purpose. " In response to the accusation, The University began an investiga- tion of Government 372N and 672N, semester-long courses requir- ing that students work on local political campaigns. Paul Begala, assistant and former press secretary to U.S. Senate candidate Lloyd Doggett, said students are excellent campaign workers because they are " aggressive, well-read, motivated, sincere and politically aware. " Students working on U.S. Senatorial campaigns for Doggett and Bob Krueger dealt with all aspects of campaign publicity. Marikay Norris, a UT stu- dent intern who assisted Dog- gett ' s campaign manager, said the campaign offered plenty of work to challenge the govern- ment students. " We ' re not supposed to be envelope-stuffers, " the govern- ment junior said. " We work with the media and sometimes research media audiences in areas of Texas Doggett plans to visit, " she said.

" There ' s not another organization like us, " said Anne Solley, AKPsi president. Professionalism was a key goal achieved through field trips, guest lectures and campus involvement. AKPsi was voted the No. 1 business organization on campus by the UT College of Business Ad- ministration Council. Members took out-of-town field trips to the Southland Corp. and Mary Kay Cosmetics in Dallas. In Austin, members toured American Bank, Investment Diver- sified Services, Ernest Whinney, Rotan Mosle and Digatext. Tours were split into interest areas of accounting, finance, management and marketing. Thus, AKPsi members received individualized job descriptions and run-downs of specific duties. Campus involvement was an im- portant aspect of AKPsi ' s activities. Centennial participation kept members busy. Some members ushered during the Convocation at the Frank Erwin Center, while others portrayed graduates in the mock graduation ceremony. Service functions were also on the AKPsi yearly agenda. On Labor Day, they took part in the Muscular Dystrophy Association Basketball bounce, Participants raised over $1,000 bouncing basketballs at shop- ping malls around Austin. AKPsi also visited the Center for Battered Women and repainted the living room, outside, and recovered floors. The Organization boasted strong alumni involvement. An alumni din- ner party attracted about 25 alumni. Guest alumni frequently spoke during weekly meetings. " Through diverse programs, we ' re doing more activities with concen- trating in professional fields. We have a lot of potential that we ' re beginning to tap into, " Solley said.

MCC ' s president. Bobby Ray Inmann, was a fitting speaker and guest of honor for the Data Processing Management iat ion ' s spring banquet at the Stephen V. Austin hotel. The 200 members and guests present that night enjoyed a successful finish to DPMA ' s year. Susan Kuhkle, DPMA president, said the organization had been suc- cessful in accomplishing its goal of giving members an opportunity to complement their studies through field trips and speakers. A field trip to Houston allowed members to view their future work firsthand. The Shell Computer Research Center allowed members to tour the building, watch employees and discuss jobs available to DPMA graduates with the Shell Corporation. With TGIFs every third Friday of the month at the Scholz Garten, members could become acquainted. Kuhkle said everyone benefitted from these casual meetings because they could discuss classes, instructors and the required certification testing for Data Processing Management students. " All we wanted to do is let each member be aware of the test and when the dates were, " Kuhkle said. Keeping members in touch with professionals was aided by monthly meetings.

Each Delta Sigma Pi pledge was re- quired to spend at least one hour each week assisting Joe Vorsas, direc- tor of placements for the College of Business Administration, in an effort to expose all of the fraternity ' s members to the realities of the business world. Weekly meetings and occasional out-of-town seminars were designed to supplement the group ' s awareness of opportunities in their respective business fields. Speakers encouraged members to sharpen their resume-writing and in- terviewing skills and provided infor- mation about careers in such fields as insurance and real estate. When members traveled to Dallas in November, 1983, they were treated to career presentations at DH S ac- counting firm, InterFirst Bank and Sanger-Harris. Delta Sigma Pi also worked with other organizations on service pro- jects. All members participated in a phone-a-thon to benefit the CBA Century Club, a business school sup- port group that provided funds for scholarships, speakers and CBA Week each semester. In December, the fraternity helped with the annual Salvation Army " shoe-in, " fitting needy Austin area children with sturdy shoes donated to the Salvation Army. " Little sisters " were chosen each semester as new members pledged. The " little sisters ' field day " provid- ed all members with good food and fun. The picnic was followed by a series of relays and games, including a race in which participants had to use their teeth to retrieve pieces of candy hidden under a pile of flour.

Delta Sigma Pi 283 ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT SOCIETY Q ociety Offers Career Events " The Engineering Management Society, because of its newness and diversity, has a good chance for being broadened, " said Becky Liebman, president. Diversity described not only the society ' s interests, it describ- ed its activities, she said. The society, which was organized in the fall of 1982, had been very helpful in providing a communica- tions network between engineering- management majors and potential employers. The organization reached that goal by providing various social and career opportunity events for members to meet other students in their major and learn more about careers available to them as engineering-route-to-business ma- jors. The degree plan combined engineering and business courses into a business degree qualifying graduates to hold management posi- tions in technological, engineering and scientific enterprises. Members participated in a field trip to Houston to tour the facilities of the Houston Area Research Center and the TRW Mission. Speakers from IBM and Tracer enlightened members about career opportunities and interviewing techniques. The society also helped its members with advising for registration and pub- lished a resume book for graduating seniors that was sent to approx- imately 100 companies nationwide. " Engineering Management Society unites a lot of people with diverse, yet similar interests. What we are stress- ing this year is providing students with a better understanding of career opportunities that are available to them as majors in engineering and management, " she said. Through their efforts, the Engineering Management Society helped make students feel more at home with what may have considered an unusual major. However, to members of the society, majoring in engineering-route-to-business let them enjoy the best of both profes- sional worlds.

I ' T Finance Associa- tion president. Alt bough the organization met for- mally only three times each semester, many other UTFA sponsored ac- tivities tilled out the year. The association, with about 300 members, was the second largest single student group at UT, surpass- ed only by the Longhorn Band. The association was open to all tudents interested in finance, but was mainly composed of business students. The UTFA Newsletter was published monthly and kept the members aware of current meetings, speakers and TGIFs. TGIFs occurred three times a semester. The associa- tion rented a private room at a club and provided an open bar for its members for two hours. Each semester, the group took a two-day field trip to large firms and banks. Sept. 22-23, UTFA traveled to Houston ' s Hughes Tool Corporation, American General Insurance Com- pany, Texas Commerce of Houston and Bank of the Southwest. Feb. 6-7, the association went to Dallas and toured Mercantile Na- tional Bank, InterFirst Bank, the Southland Corporation and the Federal Reserve Bank. Speaker s sponsored by the group included State Treasurer Ann Richards, Roy Saunders, president and chief executive of Northwest State Bank and Trust, who spoke to the association about independent banking, and stockbroker Carl Stewart of Rotan Mosley, who discussed a career in investments. Charles Frankle, vice president and chief economist of First City Bank in Houston spoke to the group about bank shares. However, not all speakers were brought in for formal meetings. In October, the association sponsored James A. Forese, IBM, Inc. treasurer. The informal discussion on corporate finance was open to the public. " We want students to see how it really is out there. Speakers discribe the average day in the corporate world, " Walker said. The largest event sponsored by the association was Bank Night on Feb. 15. Twenty Texas banks and Chase Manhattan of New York sent representatives to the Texas Union Ballroom, where each bank had a recruitment table. " A unique feature of UTFA is that we invite the faculty to all the func- tions. This brings the students together with the faculty and im- proves student-faculty relation- ships, " Walker added.

" We owe a lot to our alumni for all of their help, " she said. In 1983, 20 HBSA members, almost half of the organization, graduated. However, the former members remained interested and helped whenever possible. The members organized a network of alumni willing to speak to the group on topics in the business world. These former members also served as a link with the " real world, " Marissa Estevis, executive vice president, said. The association, named " Most Outstanding Organization of the Year " by the College of Business Ad- ministration for two consecutive years, worked to uphold its tradition of excellence. One of the major accomplishments of the year was the first annual Com- pany Night, at which representatives from several companies, including In- terFirst Bank, Ernst Whinney, and Peat Marwick Mitchell Co., met with members and discussed careers. In Spring, 1984, HBSA members ventured to San Antonio and Houston to visit some of the major business firms there. While in San Antonio, members visited the corporate offices of Data Point, Peat Marwick Mitchell Co. and United Service Automobile Association. The spring banquet was the final event of the year, when members were recognized for their ac- complishments during the year. This marked the ending of a year of hard work during which all members con- tributed to the rebuilding of HBSA. Sarah Duke FIRST ROW: Marissa Rebecca Estevis, Sanjlianita G.

" . Its founders, under the ' adviser Ruben McDaniel, .-ed the need to communicate the expectations and problems of black students in the College of Business Administration. ' The purpose of National Student Business League is to strengthen the next generation of black men and nen in the tasks of meeting new avenues for minorities in the American life and especially in the business and economic world, " presi- dent Dwight Jones said. nulating a two-way com- munication between black business lents, other organizations and bu community service was another purpose of the National Student Business League. " We try to promote a spirit of pro- fessionalism among black undergraduate students of business, " Jones said. To join NSBL, a student had to be enrolled at The University of Texas, but not necessarily in the College of Business Administration. Former members, faculty members and ad- ministrators interested in the active support of the NSBL were welcomed. In the Fall, the NSBL went to Dallas for a National Association of Black Accountants convention. At this convention, the members attend- ed seminars on topics such as listen- ing skills. NSBL also sponsored a convention in Austin. The group invited business professors from all over Texas to speak on different aspects of the business world. In the Spring, NSBL established a presidential scholarship. Sponsoring a roast for Earl Campbell, Heisman Trophy winner of 1977 which Fred Akers, Bum Phillips and former teammates attended NSBL hoped to raise $10,000 for the scholarship. The award was given to an outstan- ding upper-division minority student in the business school. With all these activities going on, NSBL still managed to throw some parties, mixers and picnics for the members. These get togethers let the members get better acquainted. Through NSBL, the members were able to share experiences with profes- sional business men and women. Members were also helped with setting up and having successful in- terviews. With these advantages, NSBL members were able to receive better insight into business. Livia Liu ' ..-Ison. .Iain.. Marie Mupre. I ' .ilnna Ann ' ' ht-ilc Hnkcr. Susan Diane IVrn I.

Six women formed Phi Beta Chi business fraternity out of concern for women planning professional business careers. Since the fraternity ' s beginnings in 1973, membership had grown to ap- proximately 110 members from every business field offered at The University. One way members met business of- ficials this year was by sponsoring cocktail parties with the other business fraternities. Held once a semester at the Lila B. Etter Alumni Center, the parties featured business men and women from all over Austin. " This is a great way to make con- nections in an informal atmosphere, " president Diane Flynn said. Phi Beta Chi also held weekly meetings with guest speakers. Employees from the Equal Oppor- tunity Commission and InterFirst Bank spoke on women ' s choices in business professions. Flynn said the highlight of the year was traveling to both Houston and Dallas, where they toured Merrill Lynch, Arthur Young, IBM and In- terFirst Bank. This year " big brothers " were add- ed to the group. Big brothers were students working toward their Master ' s in Business Administration who wanted to meet women in- terested in business. Phi Beta Chi also sponsored service projects in 1983-84. In the Fall of 1983, Phi Beta Chi held a party for children at the Extendacare Day Care Center in East Austin.

Phi Beta Chi 289 PHI CHI THETA S eminar Stresses Career Skills " To get ahead in the business world today, it ' s important to make contacts, " said Brenda Buckner, Phi Chi Theta president. Making con- tacts was one of the main goals members of the business fraternity pursued while participating in ac- tivities throughout 1983-84. " Knowing people already established in the business world can be helpful in finding jobs, and they can offer a wealth of information useful to anyone going into the local business community, " Buckner said. Through a carefully scheduled pro- gram of events, the women of Phi Chi Theta combined professional, social and service events into a program that helped promote the education and training of women in business. At the beginning of each semester, a rush week was held to attract pro- spective pledges. The group held a traditional Margarita Party at the beginning of the week and a Dessert Brunch at the end of the week. Welcoming all business majors to attend, Phi Chi Theta sponsored a career seminar Nov. 20, 1983. Among the speakers were Stanley Kaplan, who spoke about the Graduate Management Aptitude Test, and Sylvia Stearn from IBM, who spoke about " Games Mother Never Taught You to Play, " which focused on women in the working world. There was also a fashion show entitled " Dress for Success. " Actives, pledges, and alumnae celebrated Phi Chi Theta ' s Founders ' Day, Mar. 6, 1984. A candlelight ceremony and a coat-of-arms ceremony, were performed to honor the pioneers of Phi Chi Theta, who founded the fraternity in 1924 at the University of New York. Members provided service to the College of Business Administration and Austin by helping with the CBA Council ' s first phone-a-thon to help raise money for its Century Club Centennial Professorship in the business college, and by working at the Austin area Special Olympics. " We are trying to promote a net- work, " said Jackie Trojanowsky, treasurer, and a marketing finance senior. " Throughout the rest of our lives, we will be seeing these girls. We are all striving for the same purpose; professionally educating ourselves, " she said in conclusion.

We are a social group as well, " said Mindy Reiter, presi- dent of the University Accounting Association, which boasted some 250-300 members in 1983 and ' 84. Reitner emphasized that fellowship did, indeed, form the vital framework of the organization during the year. The University Accounting Association was open to accounting majors as well as to students possess- ing any interest in accounting. " We help members get better ac- quainted with faculty members and meet recruiters on an informal basis. We learn about the business world, " Reiter said. Weekly TGIF meetings and several field trips were notable items on the University Accounting Association ' s agenda. The TGIFs were designed to aid UAA students professionally by in- cluding various speakers, many of them coming from business firms. A special TGIF was set aside to honor faculty members. On Sept. 30, UAA members took a field trip to Houston, visiting various Big Eight firms, including Deloitte, Haskins Sells, Price Waterhouse, Coopers Lybrand and Seidman Seidman. The Big Eight firms, the eight most prestigious accounting firms in Houston, provided the group with an inside look at the profes- sional world. The UAA also visited Texas Commerce and InterFirst banks. The group took a similar field trip in February, targeting Dallas. The well-rounded activities of the University Accounting Association expressed its unique outlook: looking upon the group ' s professionalism with pride, while maintaining a firm grip on the " human touch.

Drive and dedication that is what it took to establish the second largest student organization of the College of Business Administration. If you put initiative, drive and dedication together, you have established the University Entrepreneurial Association. UEA was open to all university students with ideas to share one small business. Jimmy Enriquez, president, said the UEA " really got off the ground " since its establish- ment in October of 1983. Enriquez said that UEA worked hard and strove to higher limits to achieve a thriving membership of 200 by January 1984. Enriquez said one reason UEA became so popular was their pro- grams from which future en- trepreneurs could benefit. " Through UEA, some students were able to believe in themselves and their ventures, which helped them to succeed, " Enriquez said. One activity sponsored by UEA was a series of guest speakers, which included Gary Valdez from Texas Commerce Bank, Ralph Moreland from PedunkelV, Ray Smith from the Small Business Administration and Corky Logue, an Austin entrepreneur. Enriquez said one activity that members were extremely proud of was the entrepreneurial conference. Member Kevin McKinney said that hosting a successful conference after being in existence for only a short time was something to be proud of. Held April 28, the conference on " Opportunities in Entrepreneurship in Texas " allowed members to meet entrepreneurs. Topics included: " Venture Capital, " " Future Texas Trends, " " Legal Environment for Entrepreneurs " and " The Advantage of Computers. " The UEA ended the year by organizing a business network for members and their alumni. This net- work established contact between current and past members. Also, it was used for references on ideas or ventures that members and alumni wanted to develop or had developed.

The association was designed to in- tudents in legal careers. Since competition was high in legal study, the PLA served a very important function for these students by pro- viding closer looks at law schools and their admission standards. The primary goal of the group was helping students decide whether law school was the right step for them. The PLA met twice a month to hear speakers from different legal fields. Among them were District At- torney Ron Earle; assistant dean of the UT School of Law, T. J. Gibson, and Texas Supreme Court Justice Robert Campbell. The speakers told members about their jobs and how they attained them. PLA also provided members with a firsthand look at law school with a panel discussion chaired by UT law students. " That was a real eye-opener, " PLA president Noelle McAffie said. The organization sponsored Law School Admission Test reviews led by campus experts in logic and writing. As a follow up, the group held four mock LSATs. A mock LSAT was given one week before each official LSAT was scheduled. This gave students a chance to upgrade their test skills and decrease their anxieties. The PLA sponsored a Law Fair as well. Held in the lobby of Townes Hall, the fair brought representatives from Tulane, Baylor, St. Mary ' s, Oklahoma, Houston and South Texas, who provided information to students about their law programs. PLA members also devoted some time to fun activities, too. On Hallo- ween, they helped the United Cerebral Palsy foundation by work- ing in the KHFI-98 Haunted House on Sixth Street. " The Pre-Law Association offers students a chance to understand what law school ' s all about, with its challenges and costs before you ac- tually walk in the door, " McAffie said.

University Pre-Law Association 295 [ PUBLIC RELATIONS STUDENT SOCIETY OF AMERICA pRSSA Learns By Doing In the fast-paced and competitive field of public relations, students need all the help they can get. Public Relations Students Society of America tried to offer that help by providing opportunities for students to increase their professionalism through practical experience, seminars and establishing contacts with professionals. In October, several students went to New York City for the national convention of PRSSA. According to Jeff Hunt, president, the Big Apple was quite an interesting experience. Students attended several different workshops of their choice, ranging from investor relations for major cor- porations to public relations for non- profit organizations. Members spent one rainy after- noon in November learning the uses and applications of multi-media. By the end of the day, members had prepared an entire slide presentation including script, photos and art. In the spring, members held a second workshop. This time the subject was the role of computers in the public relations field. " The main purpose of the workshop was to get rid of the com- puter anxiety that most people have and give them some idea of the im- portance of computers, " said Beth Collier, vice-president. PRSSA ' s monthly newsletter was a group effort, with some members contributing stories while others prepared the layout and art, giving each person an opportunity to gain actual experience. During each meeting, members listened to speakers from different areas of public relations such as com- munity relations for Seton Hospital. Seton ' s public relations director explained that public relations is tak- ing much more of a management role and being included in deciding issues that will affect the hospital ' s image. She also stressed the fact that peo- ple in the public relations field must possess energy and flexibility. They must enjoy the job and be willing to let someone else take the credit. The Christmas party in December gave everyone a chance to relax and get to know some of the faculty from the public relations department. Everyone had one final fling before finals at the Arthur Page Lecture Banquet held in April. It was the third banquet named after one of the founding fathers of the public rela- tions field.

' i April. It ra aed after one of tit of the public reli rah Duke As competition grew fiercer in each professional field, many students wondered what was waiting for them after graduation. What kind of job opportunities awaited them and how to go about getting a job were ques- tions asked by many students. Answers to these questions could be found in many of the organizations on campus. One of these organiza- tions was the Radio TV Film Club. With 120 members, the RTF Club ' s main purpose was to assist the RTF department in a social advisory role. With lectures and guest speakers, the RTF Club informed undergraduates on what classes to take and what career opportunities were available to them in this field. Socially, the club brought together students and faculty with mixers and parties which enabled the to interact with each other on a casual basis. Some projects and activities in which the RTF Club participated were Communication Week and a semi-formal spring dance held in the Texas Union Ballroom. During Communication Week, the club assisted the RTF department during RTF Day. The members worked in the RTF booth informing and answering questions about their field. Lisa Bemel, president of the organization, said there were certain advantages for members in the club. Members were able to get more involved with the department and faculty while attaining more hands- on experience. Interests ran higher in the club than it might in a classroom, giving the student-members added insight into the field. Livia Liu Advisor: Dr. Robert E. Davis. K1KST ROW: Shari A.

Throughout the year, the UT chapter worked hard to maintain the organization ' s values of responsible journalism. " We try to offer programs for pro- fessional development, ethics and freedom of information, " Carmen Hill, SPJ ' s Fall 1983 president, said. During Communication Week in March, members distributed brochures on the importance of freedom of information. " We were trying to inform students about freedom of information and to en- courage them to fight restriction of in- formation, " Hill said. During the University Inter- scholastic League state contests in April, SPJ members provided coffee and doughnuts for the participating journalism students and gave tours of The Daily Texan newsroom and the KLRN studios. " We wanted to in- troduce the students to the facilities and encourage them to get involved in journalism, " Carol Peoples, SPJ ' s Spring 1984 president, said. Several professional journalists shared their experiences in the field at meetings throughout the year. John Taliaferro, editor of Third Coast magazine, enlightened members on the founding and opera- tion of the locally-oriented magazine. During one of the meetings, members discussed problems in the communication fields with a panel of members of the local media. Russ Stockton from KVUE and Larry Clark from KVET, along with Ed Crowell, city editor of the Austin- American Statesman, made up the panel. At the end of the year, members got together at Scholz Garten for a chance to relax. Sarah Duke FIRST ROW: Michelle Elaine Robberson, Karen Sue Reyes, Sara Leah Parzen, Debra Lynn Fetterman.

" Textbooks define it as the study of message sending and receiving in an organizational setting, but actual- ly it ' s more than just that, " he said. At every SOCS meeting, after regular business and announcements were finished, the group participated in " creative learning skills, " which were situations set up to help the students apply what they learned in their classes by solving a communica- tions problem they might encounter in the future. To increase the membership ' s awareness of jobs available to them, the group held two " Career Contact Day " programs in October, 1983, and March, 1984, featuring advice seminars by organizational com- munication graduates. In September, Nancy Warner, an organizational communication graduate now with Colour, Inc., spoke to the group about hair, skin color, and figure and the colors one should wear to look professional. " I can take my career any way I want to ... there are so many oppor- tunities available to me. SOCS is great because it helps you tune in to your own individual talents and skills, " said Jill Kelly. " Communications is a very impor- tant skill, and the Society of Organizational Communication Students is trying to promote awareness in the business community of what organizational communica- tions can do for business, " Batsche said.

Society of Organizational Communication Students 299 UT ADVERTISING CLUB A d Club Compiles Portfol ios Jt In 1984, the University of Texas Advertising Club helped its members gain insight into advertising by spon- soring field trips and films. Most meetings also had professional speakers, so members were constant- ly exposed to their prospective careers. Speakers came to the Ad Club from professional agencies such as Ogilvy and Mather, McCahn Erickson and Tracy Locke BBDO. Martin Torres, the club ' s presi- dent, said agencies that spoke to the Ad Club were interested in UT adver- tising graduates. Torres also said there were a limited number of jobs in the field and the competition was stiff. Ad Club speakers fired employ- ment hopes, though, saying openings arise when people move from agency to agency. Torres emphasized that speakers also gave students tips on how to develop ad campaigns and the impor- tance of a sharp, witty portfolio. The Ad Club gave members a chance to be together socially as well as professionally. Mixers were held at Scholz ' s and members often played volleyball together. One meeting was devoted to watching the Cleos, the world-wide awards given to outstan- ding commercials. Ad Club members also traveled to Dallas to visit the Richards Group and Tracy Lock. Twenty students went to New York City during spring break and visited advertising agen- cies such as J. Walter Thompson, Hearst Magazines and the advertis- ing offices of the Wall Street Journal. UT Ad Club also helped with the Austin Advertising Club ' s " Addies, " awards for Austin ' s best adver- tisements. Members assisted the pro- fessional club with setting up and striking down the sets for the ceremonies. Torres said the organization ' s two faculty advisors, Gary Wilcox and An- dy Hardy, both assistant professors in advertising, helped the group tremendously. " They helped link the advertising department and the Ad Club together. They also provided any equipment the speakers needed. Both encourage people to get involved by getting other faculty members to an- nounce meeting times in class, " Tor- res said.

Through forums and plant trips, tried to educate students about , the risks and benefits of nuclear technology. One such visit was to the ii Texas Nuclear Project. Forums and lectures covered topics such as electricity production, medical diagnosis and waste detox- ification. Linn Draper, vice-president of ANS National, spoke to the UT chapter on " The Electric Utilities i and Nuclear Power: What is necessary to change the image?

" People use a rubber band and propeller and whoever stays up longest wins, " he said. The contest was held April 7, 1984, at Zilker Park. Along with the model airplane contest, there was a hand- launched glider contest. " The gliders are just for fun, " Robert Soto, president of AIAA, said, " but people take those little airplanes seriously. Some people spend months working on them just to watch them crash. " Sommerfield said besides watching the contest, members played football, softball and enjoyed lots of barbecue and beer. Aside from picnics and model airplane contests, the organization tried to keep members up to date in the field of aerospace engineering and to provide them with a chance to make career contacts. During the year, members made several field trips to aircraft produc- tion plants throughout the state. The group visited the Moonie Air- craft plant in Kerrville on Oct. 14, 1983. Members saw the production process of private aircraft. On Oct. 19, members toured the General Dynamics plant in Dallas, where they watched the assembly of F-16 jets and talked with engineers about the design of the craft and career possibilities with the firm. On Oct. 28 and Feb. 23, members went to Houston, where they tour the facilities of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. " We ' re trying to get away from o reputation of being so defense oriented, " Soto said. " We ' re very in terested in the possibilities of spa- travel. That ' s going to be very impor- tant in our careers, " he said. Another way members kept up date with aerospace engineering was to have professionals speak a meetings. Among some of the sub- jects discussed were trans-sonic fluid flow, aerospace product liability and the space shuttle satellite program. As Soto put it: " What ' s important to us may not be important to anyone else, but we like it. " Sarah Duke i FIRST ROW: Ellin Amirali Hirani, Kirk Lynn Holub, James Phillip Russell.

In an attempt to reach its goal of omoting a professional attitude and increasing awareness of what life is like in the " real world " of chemical engineering, the group brought speakers from companies such as Fisher Control and Dow Chemical to its monthly meetings. Members also participated in in- tramural sports and sponsored their own pool tournament. Four " Firesides " were held throughout the year, where faculty members invited students into their homes to talk and get to know each other better. The organization also provided ser- vices for its members. Class advising was offered to underclassmen. Chemical engineering books were ordered in mass quanity to help lower costs for students. AICE also kept files on graduate schools. In the Spring, 1984, one of the group ' s major concerns was hosting the regional AICE convention April 12-14. Representatives from eight Texas and Louisiana schools attend- ed the convention, held at the Sheraton Crest Hotel. The theme of the convention was " Job Oppor- tunities for Chemical Engineers. " " We ' re trying to help prepare peo- ple to be good, innovative, creative people when they get out in the in- dustry. We try to make life easier for chemical engineering majors, " Bren- necke said. " Chemical engineering can take something that is not useful, and we have the skills to make it something very, very useful, and I think that ' s kind of neat, " Brennecke said.

American Institute of Chemical Engineers 303 -| AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS " A SCE Constructs Own Designs " Some people think all we do is put up bridges and buildings, " said Troy Reynolds, American Society of Civil Engineers president. " We ' re also in- volved in building ships, pipelines, large industrial facilities, water con- tainment buildings and sometimes structural aspects of nuclear project foundational design, " he said. Reynolds explained that the civil engineer ' s responsibility was to economize building design. " What we ' ll be paid to do is to make our designs work the first time, but we have to do things in an economical manner, " he said. " We have to figure ways to save people money. " The ASCE learned to apply the knowledge gained in the classroom by sponsoring projects and speakers for bimonthly meetings. At one meeting the ASCE heard a representative from R. J. Brown and Associates, a firm specializing in sub- marine pipelines. ASCE members also traveled to Dallas to attend the state ASCE con- vention in April, where they par- ticipated in a favorite event: the con- crete canoe race. " They really float, " said Reynolds. " We get the knowledge to design them in our courses, so we ' re able to apply what we ' ve learned. " Reynolds said that designing the concrete canoes required knowledge of mix design the water-to-cement ratio required to build a sturdy vessel - and reinforcement design, or the positioning of metal bars within the structure. ASCE members prepared The University ' s canoe entry. " The con- crete is placed and cured over spring break, " said Reynolds. Members sanded and painted the canoe after spring break. Reynolds said the UT canoe was usually suc- cessful in the contest. " Through computer application, we study hydraulic design and ce- ment mixtures to create the optimum canoe, " he said. " Crews train after spring break, " Reynolds said, explaining that the contest required all entries be accom- panied by an essay describing their design and strategy. ASCE also participated in the na- tionwide Model Span Contest, which required that entrants design and build model bridges with a ration of balsa wood and epoxy. " The designs determine the model bridges ' ability to withstand the weight of metal pieces, which are placed on either side of the bridge until they break, " Reynolds said. In February, ASCE sponsored a student paper contest. Essays dealing with civil engineering topics were judged by ASCE officers. Entrants were required to make presentations of their ideas. ASCE also sponsored several social activities throughout the year. Occa- sional beer busts for students and faculty provided diversions of frisbee, hacky-sack and touch football. Christ!

" The idea behind the organization is to let our members find out what engineers actually do, " Michael Parker, president of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, said. This idea came to realization when professional engineers spoke at meetings, and the group took field trips during the year. Speakers at ASME ' s meetings brought different perspectives about mechanical engineering. They ex- plained the roles engineers played in companies ' sales, technology and management. A representative from Folger ' s Coffee said that mechanical engineers were preferred for manage- ment positions in factories since they understood the technological aspects of the machinery. ASME offered engineering students a chance to get involved and be active with each other, Parker said. Moreover, it gave members a chance to work with professionals, he said.

Evaluating computer hardware formed only the professional aspect of ACM, a network of computer science students relying on each other for academic and social support in an otherwise solitary field. But time away from the keyboard called for Friday beer busts at the Texas Tavern. And with support came encouragement from speakers coming from Harvard and UC-Berkeley, whose inspirations pro- mpted the compilation of a group resume portfolio, the creators of the new technology and from fellow students in study groups.

A division of the UT Department of Civil Engineering, architectural engineering " deals with inhabitable buildings, " Rush said. " We treat our occupation as a pro- fession like medicine or law, " said Rush, who was one of about 100 ar- chitectural engineering students at The University. " We are builders, not designers, " he said. Rush said architectural engineers must " gain knowledge for knowledge ' s sake " in order to work with a wide variety of building pro- jects and building material. Architectural engineers must work with contractors who have taken on building projects. " When they show us a design, we have to be able to say ' I can show you how to do this ' in an economical way. It ' s part luck, part cutthroat to get a bid for a project. We can ' t let our companies go broke, " Rush said. " We consider ourselves the in- novative part of the civil engineering department, " he added. NSAE sponsored model-building contests and speakers from architec- tural firms throughout the year. Dwight Ureleus, a structural engineer, spoke on his work with the Austin branch of Datum Structures, a national firm employing many engineers. At one meeting, members heard about trends in general contracting and subcontracting from Walren Bellows, owner and president of Bellows Construction. The Bellows Houston branch built the UT Main Building in 1934. Rush said that there are three sub- divisions within architectural engineering: construction manage- ment, structural design and en- vironmental health. He said architectural engineers must work closely with the building ' s architect in order to determine the feasibility of a particular design. Engineers concerned with the structural design of a building work closely with their contractors to devise a " work-flow chart. " Rush described the charts " giant formats that determine what order things should be done in " as a building is constructed. " We figure the ' have to be dones ' with the amount of time construction is supposed to take " to create the charts, Rush said. The environmental health aspect of architectural engineering involves the construction of drainage sewage structures, wastewater treatment plants and nuclear power projects. Rush said architectural engineers in- terested in working with nuclear power plants should have additional knowledge in mechanical and chemical engineering. Although students were allowed to receive course credit for internships, four years of work under the supervi- sion of a professional engineer were also required beyond the college degree. After gaining work experience, the student appeared before a licensing board, where he was tested in a specific area of expertise.

National Society of Architectural Engineers 307 PI SIGMA PI roup Serves Others Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Pi Sigma Pi recruited and kept minority students in the engineering department. The group helped these students through workshops, preparing them for interviews and resume preparation. A summer high school program sponsored by Pi Sigma Pi, Minority Introduction to Engineering, enabled high school students to learn more about engineering at The University. The one -day program provided a workshop for the students. PSP members answered questions and gave advice about engineering. Sonia Gutierrez, the group ' s presi- dent, said, " Pi Sigma Pi tries to be a role model for these high school students. We try to help them in any way we can. " There were two sub-committees within Pi Sigma Pi: the National Stu- dent of Black Engineers Committee and the National Student of Hispanic Engineers Committee. These com- mittees sponsored job fairs, workshops and held regional meetings with other Pi Sigma Pi chapters in Texas. Even though PSP offered profes- sional guidance to the members, it also sponsored informal parties, pic- nics at Zilker Park and a banquet. " The only requirement to be in Pi Sigma Pi is that the member-to-be must be a UT student. That ' s all, " Gutierrez said. " The biggest advantage for members is our recruiting contact program. Companies come to our organization instead of the placement office, " she said. " We were able to make a list of what the companies are looking for. This way students can sign up for an interview without having to go to the placement office, " she said. The organization also published its own newsletter, which informed members on events in the College of Engineering and Pi Sigma Pi. " People serving people is what Pi Sigma Pi stands for, and that ' s what we hope to do, " Gutierrez said.

" c put classroom knowledge to practical experience, " said Acevedo. ike new students and teach them what we know, " Acevedo said. This year, the group concentrated 3 on the design of one car. In order to experience working with recently developed, high-tech plastics, members built a mini for- mula car that incorporated Kevlar, a material rated five times stronger than steel, into its body. This material was also used by racing boat manufacturers. Materials and money for SAE pro- jects were donated to the group by various large corporations, including Vaught Corporation of Dallas, Tex- aco, Shell and Budweiser. Then SAE members turned their mechanical talents toward fund rais- ing, selling car tune-ups to the public. The SAE ' s talents were not limited to construction and engineering. In the annual formula SAE champion- ship, established by the UT chapter, members ' driving abilities were tested in competition on a serpentine tract at Memorial Stadium. " Cars entered in the race must be student-designed, built and raced. They are judged for excellence in design and creativity, " Acevedo said. Acevedo said that the 50-member group was not very business-oriented. " We have our meetings, listen to our speakers . . . and we get together afterwards to have a beer or two, " he said.

Society of Automotive Engineers 309 SOCIETY OF WOMEN ENGINEERS Expand Outlook The Society of Women Engineers, although a professional organization, focused more on the personal aspects rather than technical aspects of women in engineering. " We do have different problems than men, like learning how to balance a family and careers, " SWE president Connie Vaughn said. SWE was open to male and female students from all engineering disciplines. " I ' d say it ' s more informal than other more technical societies, " Vaughn added. Because of competitive engineering markets, SWE sponsored several pro- grams to aid graduates in finding jobs. A resume book compiled by the group was sent to engineering com- panies expressing interest, through the Engineering Placement Center, in UT graduates. One SWE committee was available for anyone with a question about women in engineering, and a high school interaction program visited high schools and answered questions about the College of Engineering. Intramural sports competition was available to interested members. In the Fall, SWE competed in soccer with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and with the National Society of Architectural Engineers in the Spring. Also in the Spring, SWE started the alumni committee, which con- tacted female engineering graduates from The University to help graduates in the job market. Through female speakers such as Fara Brock of Hewlett-Packard and Mary Lou Gittleson of AT T, SWE focused on the behavioral and social aspects of jobs conditions. Sometimes the group acted as a support for women who experienced embarrass- ment or problems in the predominantely male field. SWE occasionally had male members and was always encouraging male engineers to come to the meetings. " SWE helps women to know what to expect in a male-dominated field, " Vaughn said.

" In fact, I think we have a better mixture than any other professional music group on campus, " she said. The coed music fraternity had than that mix to be proud of. Mu Phi Epsilon made an impressive recovery from a low that occurred about two years ago. " The chapter at UT was dying un- luple of years ago, " Currie said. " There were only about four members. We voted on wheter or not to continue UT ' s chapter. " The chapter not only continued, but it grew. During 1983-84, it had 18 active members. For a student to join Mu Phi Ep- silon, he had to take one semester of music theory or the equivalent. A 3.0 GPA in music courses and 2.5 overall were required. Yet Mu Phi Epsilon was not open to students alone. " With the permission of the na- tional organization, we may invite any strong musician professional or otherwise to become a member, " Currie said. Besides hosting a Christmas party for UT ' s music department, Mu Phi Epsilon gave several recitals. " We require each member to per- form in at least one of them. If any member needs to perform for so- meone informally, also, our weekly meetings provide an outlet for them, " Currie said. Members also helped within the community with music therapy for retarded children and senior citizens.

The male music fraternity celebrated the occa- sion on May 1 1 with a banquet at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The event also honored the retiring faculty adviser, Nelson Patrick, associate professor of music. Patrick also resigned from his position as director of music for the University Interscholastic League. Phi Mu Alpha also celebrated its 85th anniversary nationally in 1983. The UT chapter observed this by sponsoring a Founder ' s Day on Oct. 6. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia provided a musical outlet for men interested in promoting music, president Brandt Leondar said. It also created an at- mosphere for them to share their musical talents. Mary Whitehead OFFICERS: FIRST ROW: Oscar Romualdo Herrera, Avelardo Abel Soto, Jeffrey Lynn DuBose.

Indeed, this international women ' s music frater- nity stressed both professionalism and community involvement. As a national organization, Sigma Alpha Iota donated music and in- struments to foreign countries, ex- emplifying its commitment to the promotion of music worldwide. Its members, either majoring or minor- ing in music, must have maintained a GPA of 3.0 in music courses and an overall GPA of at least 2.5.

Also the large st interna- tional chemical society, ACS was re- established at UT in the fall of 1981. Membership in 1983-84 included 35 students from chemistry, biochemistry and zoology. ACS was not limited to chemistry majors, the only prerequisite to membership was an interest in chemistry. Scott Schorr, fall president, said " ACS is trying to reveal the many rewarding careers that chemistry has to offer. " Listings of job openings in chemistry-related fields were com- piled for ACS members. ACS also met bimonthly to hear lectures by persons working in set- tings ranging from the laboratory to the business world. Among their speakers were Don Carlton, president of Radian Cor- poration, who spoke on starting a chemical business and Dr. Alan Cam- pion, professor of chemistry, who spoke on the modern use of lasers in science. In the fall, ACS sponsored their largest annual event - - a seminar titled " You and the Chemistry World. " One hundred eighty students from UT and 15 other universities at- tended. The seminar focused on the advantages of working in chemistry fields. Participants learned to deter- mine whether graduate school was " right " for them and how to find jobs. " ACS is trying to create an oppor- tunity for communication between chemistry majors and the chemistry field, " Schorr said. ACS also held several fundraising events. For their major fundraiser members sold over 140 copies of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics to students majoring the technical fields At the University ' s Texas In- dependence Day celebration, March 2, ACS members sold used chemistry glassware because it was no longer in use and was a " a real novelty item, " Schorr said. ACS also sponsored occasional hot dog cookouts to provide students and chemistry faculty members an oppor- tunity to become better aquanited.

Students submitted boards detailing floorplans, color selections, furniture and accessories for three rooms in the Symphony League ' s house at 608 W. 22nd St. In addition to this contest, Student ASID sponsored at least one competi- tion a month for its 130 members. The society also took advantage of a number of tours pertaining to in- terior design. These included the Governor ' s Mansion in Austin and the Wilson Art factory in Temple. Gaither said involvement in ASID was as beneficial as the degree itself. He also said the design field was changing. " The wave of the future is that interior design and architecture will fuse - - interior designers will have more expected of them, " he said. " They will have a free reign with the interiors, designing spaces rather than decorating them. By applying these, Student ASID allows the stu- dent to participate in the design field, " he said.

" Our organization deals with all needs of Physical Education majors, with a professional attitude in mind always, " LPEA president Vicki , ' herty said. Professional, educational, social and service events were all part of LPEA ' s agenda for the year. Using UT physical education graduates as job contacts and spon- soring career seminars dealing with job searching and job interviewing was part of the group ' s professional program for its members. LPEA also kept its members in- formed about job opportunities as they came in to the College of Educa- tion ' s job placement office. Seminars on education topics were held throughout the year to give members information about physical education they would not normally learn about in the classroom such as newly developed teaching methods. At its monthly meeting on Jan. 25, 1984, LPEA created the Lynn Mc- Craw Award of Excellence, to honor its adviser, a physical and health education professor. The award was to be offered to physical education seniors throughout Texas who achieved a high academic standing and a high degree of community involvement. " Being a Physical Education organization, intramural sports are our main social events, " Tammy Rodgers, social chairman, said. The group held a " Spring Fling, " which was a picnic for physical educa- tion students and faculty. They played volleyball, softball and other games throughout the day. LPEA also participated in service projects, including an annual " Jump Rope for the Heart, " a jump rope marathon to raise money for the American Heart Association. Members also provided manpower to help with local Special Olympics and UIL state and regional track meets. To advertise their existence to other physical education students and to help unite the organization, members bought T-shirts with the group ' s name on them. " Our purpose at first was to unite physical education majors, " Jo Castillo, service chairman, said. " Then we wanted to promote a bet- ter image of physical education other than that of just running and jump- ing, " she said. Roger Grape Molina, Angela Beth Wear, Tammy Lynne KoOjcers.

Clmrlir Cm Longhorn Physical Education Association 317 MARY E. GEARING HOME ECONOMICS STUDENT SECTION tudents Encourage Unity Home Economics students agreed that Mary E. Gearing Hall ' s manicured courtyard and novel design made it one of the most beautiful buildings on campus. When Mary E. Gearing founded the College of Home Economics in 1912, the Home Economics Building was nothing more than a two-room shack. Gearing taught Domestic Economy and chaired the depart- ment until 1942 and served on the faculty until 1944. The University administration elected to honor her and her ac- complishments in 1932 by dedicating the Home Economics Building in her honor. Likewise, the Home Economics Club, founded in 1915, changed its name to the Mary E. Gearing Home Economics Student Section in the Fall, 1969. " Our purpose is to develop a pro- fessional competency and attitude in home economics, " said Sharon Cowherd, president of the organization. Home economics was composed of child development, nutrition, teacher education, interior design, fashion merchandising and general home economics. The organization was uni- que in its representation of members from each field. During the year, the group stressed professionalism and had a speaker at each of its monthly meetings. Patsy Gott, a wordrobe consultant from Casual Corner, spoke on maintaining a professional-looking wardrobe. Wilma Griffin, National Home Economics Association president, spoke on the future of home economics. The group also operated a coffee shop in Mary E. Gearing Hall 129, where members sold coffee, juices, granola bars and doughnuts. The profits from the shop went toward a scholarship a vailable to members of the organization, based on need and academic achievement. " We ' re unique because we bring together all of the specialized areas of Home Economics, and we want to keep promoting that unity, " Cowherd said.

Gearing Home Economics Student Section MICROBIOLOGY MEDICAL-TECHNICAL STUDENT SOCIETY ociety Hears Health Lab Reps til i " If you look through a microscope at a specimen of E. coli, you would think of the size of our organization, " said Micro-Med Tech Society presi- dent Debs Payne. Payne said the society was proud of the fact that they were not selective in their membership. Anyone genuinely interested in microbiology or medical technology was welcome to join the society any time during the year. The organization reached out and informed those students concerned with employment prospects and graduate study possibilities. The society also showed its interest in helping those in its organization by sponsoring speakers during each semester. The Methodist Hospital in Houston, the Health Science Center in Dallas and each state health laboratory sent representatives to speak to the society during the fall semester. " Having these speakers gave socie- ty members a chance to hear firsthand what it is like to be a microbiologist or a medical techni- cian, " Payne said. Since the organization consisted mostly of juniors and seniors, they were able to use the resources of their comrades in discussing their classes, instructors and future plans. Although the Micro-Med Tech Society was small in comparison to the Micro-Med Tech honor society, Tri-Beta, these two organizations worked together. Both organizations concerned themselves with establishing better relations with the faculty and staff in the Department of Microbiology. In order to facilitate better rela- tions, the two organizations spon- sored mixers during the fall and spr- ing semesters. " We were able to reach out and help one another, " Payne said. " Knowing that graduation is almost here, I feel I am informed enough to make my decisions for the future, too, " member Michael Schiller said. Payne said the dedication of the of- ficers, the faculty and the members ' contributions gave the society an outstanding year.

The organization was open to all petroleum and pre-petroleum land management students. Through activities sponsored by the group, members got acquainted with the oil business on a more per- sonal level than that taught in the classroom. Mixing business and pleasure made learning an enjoyable experience for everyone. At the three meetings held each semester, professionals were invited to speak and mix informally with members. Industry people also participated in annual golf tournaments, skeet shoots, and tennis and racquetball tournaments. A barbecue was held at the Copeland Inn in 1983. SLA kept a mailing list of about 350 people who were either UT alum- ni or interested in The University ' s PLM program and its graduates. Those on the mailing list were invited to participate in SLA events, and Collier said the response was excellent. In a more formal setting, seminars were given by professionals familiar with the UT curriculum. In the Spring, 1984, Hugh Scott, a Houston oil and gas attorney, held a seven part series on the PLM industry. Social interaction in very informal environments was also important to members of the SLA, which was why they could occasionally be found at the Scholz Garten. The association rented the hall and provided beer. Interaction with working landmen gave members valuable contacts which helped them in the job market. " Industry people recognize that when you ' re in the SLA, you ' re demonstrating your enthusiasm and desire to become a professional land- man. It really makes a difference, " Collier added.

In February, the groups went to Busta Monte Cave and Lost Maples in Kerrville, Texas. In addition, the v students traveled to Port Aransas to work on the Longhorn, a IT owned research boat, to collect water samples. ( )t her ventures included a raft trip down the Colorado River in April. Even the group ' s fundraisers were related to geological studies. One money-maker was the sale of field trip guidebooks. In 1984, the book ' s topic was the cretaceous and tertiary settlements of Central Texas. These guides were sold through the Bureau of Economic Geology, with the profits going to the USGS. Rich ardson said that the students relied heavily on their two advisors, Thor Hansen, assistant professor of geology, and Edward Jonas, professor of geology. Both were instrumental in helping the organization plan its field trips and programs. They also helped the field trips become more educational by sharing their knowledge with the group, Richard- son said. Richardson said the USGS and AAPG both aimed their efforts at enlightening members about their careers by providing the professional experience and practical experience essential to gaining the interest of potential employers. " You get a lot more experience and general field work with USGS, which is exactly why we sponsor field- oriented events, " said Richardson. Mary Whitehead M;irk Shflhurne. I.aura !. Hill.

Guest designers and speakers were the main emphasis of the group, as president Ruth Kapcia said, " We try to bring in people who are more up to date. It ' s more fun and per- sonal. It ' s interesting to see what peo- ple went through to become successful. " Meetings were open to all students, but most members were home economics, fashion design or marketing majors. At an October meeting, Dallas designer Martin Ames brought slides, clothes and an informal fashion show. Feb. 9, Sheri Fisher, personnel director for Palais Royal, gave the group tips on what companies look for in applicants and advice on how to land jobs. " In class, they teach you how to design, but not how to find a design job, " Kapcia said. The group took a Career Day field trip to the Dallas Apparel Mart on April 14. Participants attended eight workshops concerning such topics as department store buying, fashion manufacturing and designing and success stories. In Dallas, there was a fashion show and competition for student designers. Fashion shows were also a part of the group ' s activities. Using clothing and accessories from the Outlet Malls of America, UTFG produced fashion shows for the mall every two months. March 7, the group put on a cam- pus fashion show in Burdine Hall, us- ing fashions from stores such as T. Edwards, Dillard ' s and Al ' s For- malwear. Student designs were also featured in the show. " A lot of the speakers started at the bottom, and tell you their story, and it becomes more real, " Kapcia said. " By bringing more people in, we try to open up more doors of possibilities in fashion, " Kapcia said. Neysa Wissler Fashion Group member models at a show.

The TSEA, affiliated with the Texas State Teachers Association, pursued politically oriented means to help the TSTA lobby the Legislature on education issues, particularly teacher salary increases. The group formally endorsed Walter Mondale for president at its Sept. 21, 1983, meeting. On Oct. 5, TSEA invited State Sen. Lloyd Dog- gett to discuss his views on America ' s education system. The group also sponsored several social and service events, including a carolling party and a canned food drive for needy Austin families at Christmas. " We want education students to become good teachers, " Skelton said. " We hope that we can teach educa- tion students that they need to know more than just the basics of teaching, and that they need to involve themselves more in the profession of teaching, " she said.

Texas Student Education Association 323 ALPHA EPSILON DELTA Otudents Maintain Sanity " The most important thing we do as an organization is help our members keep their sanity while try- ing to get into medical school, " said Marion Starks, president of Alpha Epsilon Delta. Starks said the organization accomplished this by concentrating on the more in- teresting aspects of medicine rather than the purely academic aspects while still maintaining high scholastic standards. AED began the year with the Great American Smokeout on Nov. 18, co- sponsored by Circle K, a service organization. The two groups held a rally on the West Mall while pledges handed out literature and encourag- ed smokers to go without cigarettes. In March, AED sponsored " Pre- Med and Pre-Dent Day. " Represen- tatives from all of the medical and dental schools in the state talked about their schools. Several students from those schools explained what it was like and told about their own psychology of " how to get through medical school. " Also in the spring, AED sponsored a mock Medical School Acceptance Test to prepare members for the ac- tual test, which could cover anything the student had studied in the last four years at The University. Members participated in volunteer programs sponsored by local health centers. According to Robert Roye, AED vice president, the most popular program was at Brackenridge Hospital, where members accompanied physicians on their rounds and helped check pa- tients. A few of the members had a chance to actually scrub up and observe surgery firsthand. While remembering the evening he spent with a doctor on his rounds, Starks said, " It was sort of a morale booster. I felt like I had some reason for sitting through that biology lab.

" The allied health fields are grow- and becoming fiercely com- itive. Even among that competi- tion, these students are trying to help h other enter into their field, " said ira Brown, faculty adviser. Allied health encompassed areas of the health team other than medicine or dentistry that helped patients recover from accidents or il- lnesses. These included such fields as physician ' s assistant, physical therapist, occupational therapist and medical technologist. Members of the Allied Health .;.iiiization were committed to lear- ning more about those fields through i kers and volumteer programs. Local physicians discussed the problems of communication between doctors and therapists and possible solutions. Physical therapists from Brackenridge Hospital explained the new techniques of treating wounds through hydrotherapy. In September, members toured the UT Health Science Center in Dallas. Because allied health degrees were not offered at The University, members could complete their studies at the center after finishing their preprofessional work in Austin. Acceptance into UT Health Science Centers was not easy. The programs were small, with only 25 to 45 people selected from as many as 400 applicants. " We are sort of a support group for those waiting to see if they will be ac- cepted, " said Joseph Moreno, AHO president, Fall 1983. " A lot of times, people get to know each other through this organization who are trying to get into the same profes- sional school. Knowing someone in the same situation can be a real help, " he said. Members gained practical ex- perience through volunteer programs at Brackenridge Hospital and the People ' s Community Clinic. These programs allowed members to gain experiences ranging from birth con- trol counseling for teenagers to help- ing stroke victims do exercises to regain use of their muscles. " I was a little nervous when I first started working with stroke victims who were learning to walk, " said Marcus Trejo, AHO president, Spr- ing 1984. Trejo was a volunteer at Capital Area Rehabilitation Center. " I had to get over that pretty fast and I really got to know some of the pa- tients after working with them over a few months, " he said. In the spring, members worked with the children in the Special Olympics as race starters, ribbon givers and buggers. According to Trejo, the most memorable event was when the AHO Caretakers took to the volleyball court with their fearsome intramural coed team. Sarah Duke KIKSI KOU Susan i M i, rev Chandler, Tn-|o.

Because the transition from high school to college is such a drastic- change, we try to make that step as easy as possible, " said Kappa Psi regent Charles Best. Organized as a medical fraternity, Kappa Psi did not become a pharmaceutical fraternity until 1879. Kappa Psi performed hypertension screenings for the students on cam- pus and the community at shopping malls. In the fall, 1983, Kappa Psi participated in a health fair in Manor, Texas. Members set up booths dealing with over-the-counter drugs and hypertension readings. Members of Kappa Psi were able to work in the pharmaceutical profes- sion. This enabled them to learn more about pharmacy, gain poise and learn how to communicate and help people. With these advantages and the feeling of brotherhood, Best believed that the time spent in Kap- pa Psi was worthwhile. Livia Liu KIKSI K r, ' . K. Greenwood.

" We have what we call health checks, " Malouf said. " We go to nurs- ing homes and talk to elderly people about health care and their medications. " The LPA had a concern for the community that extended beyond professional care. After the December freeze that destroyed crops in the Rio Grande Valley, the group organized a clothes drive for Valley residents.

But in 1983-84, MAPS was open to all minorities. The group ' s prime ob- jective was a network of support among future pharmacists. " We ' re trying to meet the needs of minority students and promote phar- macy, " president Ruben Limones id. MAPS held parties during the year allow members to get better ac- uainted outside the pharmacy lool. Pre-pharmacy students got isual exposure to their up- irclassmen at orientation parties ;anized by MAPS. " As a minority, MAPS helps me to iate my goals to help com- lunicate with the Spanish speaking people and with other minority students, " treasurer Alma Gutierrez said.

Minority Association of Pharmacy Students 329 NATIONAL CHICANO HEALTH ORGANIZATION CHO Offers Support " What makes this organization dif- ferent is that our members are real close. We study together, go out together and take the same classes together. We ' re friends, " said Jorge Dominguez, National Chicano Health Organization president. Dominguez explained that many of NCHO ' s members were from small towns and some were away from home for the first time. Because of this, the group was more than a pro- fessional organization, sharing the same situations and helping each other adjust to the pressures of col- lege life and prepare for professional school. " We ' re more of a support group than some kind of honor society, " said Rick Benavides, NCHO member. " We don ' t have any restric- t ions on who can join. " Dominguez said, " We ' re a real in- formal organization. We don ' t have all of the little regulations that a lot of organizations have. " NCHO was made up of students planning to enter health fields. Dom- inguez said about 90 percent of the members were pre-medical students and the others were pre-dental, nurs- ing or allied health students. The UT NCHO chapter marked its 10th anniversary by having several professional development and com- munity service projects. In the Fall of 1983, NCHO members conducted blood pressure screenings for members of an East Austin church. " A lot of us are bilingual and we enjoy going out there, " Dominguez said. " The people at the church res- pond to us really well. They like hav- ing someone they can talk to in Spanish about their health problems. " During the Easter weekend, members spent a day with handicap- ped children from a local hospitals. Members went to San Antonio April 13, 1984, to tour the facilities at the UT Health Science Center, where some former members were com- pleting their training. Dominguez said the organization had strong bonds with its alumni. He said the alumni were always helpful in letting members know what the professional schools were really like and what undergraduate courses would be helpful at The University. NCHO members sponsored a seminar to inform students about summer programs held at medical schools. During these programs, rang- ing from six weeks to three months, students gained exposure to medical practices and took classes. Energetic members stayed healthy throughout the year by playing in- tramural volleyball, basketball and softball. In the Spring, NCHO entered a 400-meter relay team in the student organization division of the Texas Relays. On April 14, members had a spaghetti dinner to honor newly elected officers and to celebrate the end of the semester.

Phi Delta Chi celebrated its centen- nial in 1983. Because it was such a il year for Phi Delta Chi, the group decided to do some special for the school and community. 28, 1983, Phi Delta Chi an old tradition. For the last he Phi Delta Chi Hallo- v had been shelved, iibers decided to take the project ielf and put it into action. The Halloween party was held at the New Castle party room. " It was a gift to the school, " Leal said. A . in which the first place winner won $25, was included in the festivities. In 1982, Phi Delta Chi worked in the health fair at the University Presbyterian Church. Members pass- ed out stickers and information pam- phlets about poison control. In 1983, Phi Delta Chi planned something bigger. A year long pro- ject, aimed toward the elderly citizens in Austin, was organized. Phi Delta Chi sponsored " Geriatrics in the 80s. " Through lec- tures and displays, the group was able to inform the elderly about medication and health needs. A relatively small group, Phi Delta Chi was the only coed phar- maceutical organization at The University. Because the group was small, members were able to enjoy each other ' s company. " There ' s a certain kind of spirit and togetherness among the members, " Leal said. Not interested in the number of members recruited, Phi Delta Chi was looking for people who were in- terested in the group and willing to get involved in its activities. Before joining Phi Delta Chi, members had to complete the Phi Delta Chi initiation program and maintain a 2.75 grade point average in all classes undertaken at The University. Advantages that Phi Delta Chi members received included tutoring sessions with other members. Through Phi Delta Chi, members learned there was more to pharmacy than studying.

" This Oath of Office ended the Reserve Officer Training Corps, ROTC, for 42 graduating cadets and midshipmen and began their future as Second Lieutenants and Ensigns in the United States ' Army, Army Reserve, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Reserve. All graduating seniors took the Oath of Office May 18 in Bates Recital Hall before their families, friends and fellow students. They declared their allegiance to their country, vowing to support and defend the Constitution. Private departmental ceremonies and shoulder pin- nings were held before the joint commissioning ceremony. Admiral Bobby R.

Military -333 NAVY ROTC IDSHIPMEN ON THE ROAD Running across Texas was one of the activities that kept members of the Navy ROTC occupied in 1983-84. " Being in the Navy ROTC does not mean just wearing uniforms and go- ing to school, " said Gary Thomas, battalion commander. Striving to prepare men and women to become officers in the United States Navy and Marine Corps was the basic goal of the Navy ROTC program at UT. The program kept midshipmen busy both in and out of uniform. Since midshipmen had to pass physical fitness tests each semester, they played intramural football, soc- cer, volleyball, basketball and soft- ball. In most sports, the Navy had men ' s and coed teams. Each semester, Navy ROTC members held field meets including wheelbarrow races, human pyramid competitions and tug-of-war finales which, junior midshipman Alyson Headle said, were less rigorous and more fun than the physical fitness tests. The physical conditioning paid off for the midshipmen on Veterans ' Day, 1983, when a group of them car- ried an American flag to Fredericksburg, Texas, site of the Adm. Chester Nimitz Museum and a rally point for state Veterans ' Day marches, to honor armed forces veterans. " The worst part about the run, " Thomas said, " was waiting in the van to take your turn. " During spring break, midshipmen were again on the road, running this time for the Special Olympics Committee. The midshipmen ran in shifts, with a sup- porting van, from El Paso, along In- terstate Highway 10, to San Antonio and on to Orange, Texas. To showcase their activities, mid- shipmen published The Longhorn Log, the Navy ROTC yearbook, and The Naval Orange, a pamphlet con- taining stories about the midshipmen. The Drum and Bugle Corps trav- eled to New Orleans to march in a Mardi Gras parade during the first weekend in March, 1984. Early morning workouts prepared midshipmen for their physical fitness tests. 334 Navy ROTC NAVY ROTC Being in the Navy ROTC does not mean just wearing uniforms and going to school, " said Gary Thomas. The midshipmen cleaned up Memorial Stadi um after football games and stuffed inserts for The Daily Texan. The money raised from these projects helped fund the NROTC social schedule. Midshipmen met for Friday beer calls at local establishments. When warm weather arrived, members traveled to New Braunfels to float down the river. Each semester, the ROTC held a Dining Out, a formal military dinner. The Spring 1984 Din- ing Out was followed by the Ring Dance, which honored the senior mid- shipmen. The unit also held birthday parties for the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Navy birth- day, Oct. 13, was celebrated with a cake-cutting ceremony and music played by the Drum and Bugle Corps. The Anchorettes, a group who has supported the Navy ROTC throughout the semester, celebrated with the cadets. Midshipmen strive for perfection during drill practice at Memorial Stadium.

The midshipmen took three sum- mer cruises as part of their naval training, including a month after the sophomore year comprising one week with the Marines, one week on sur- face ships, one week in submarines and one week with aviators. Before Navy ROTC members began their senior years, they acted as junior of- ficers on Navy ships. " We each stayed with an officer and saw what they actually did, " Thomas said. Recreational sailing aboard the 41- foot sailboat, " The Spirit of St. Louis, " included a summer of 1983 trip to the Bahamas and a summer of 1984 journey to the Virgin Islands. After being commissioned, Navy ensigns and Marine Corps lieutenants continued their military educations at specialized schools across the country. By all of this preparation, Thomas said, " Navy ROTC members learn to prepare for a national crisis.

Mardi Gras trappings litter- ing the ground and clinging to the marching men served only to brighten the shining brass buckles and buttons, evoke respect and ap- preciation for the perfectly aligned hats, and cause all to wonder at the immacuately clean uniforms. They cause all to wonder, that is, but the cheering group of Anchorettes com- manding a choice view on a curve in the route. They did not wonder because it was they who had " dressed down " the Buccaneers before the parade. The Anchorette women pro- vide support and spirit for Navy ROTC, Marine Corps ROTC, and such groups as the marching Buc- caneers and Scabbard and Blade. The trip to Mardi Gras was but one of many ways the Anchorettes show- ed the military they cared. Their ac- tivities included picnics, cookie calls, beer calls, and T.G.I.F. parties.

SCABBARD AND BLADE RANCHES UNITED " This year Scabbard and Blade has excelled, and I think it ' s due to our fine corps of officers, " Air Force Corps Commander Brus D. Mess- inger said. The officers devoted more time trying to make the three areas of the armed services more cohesive, said Messinger. As a tri-service organization with members from Army, Navy and Air Force ROTC units, Scabbard and Blade ' s fundamental principle was " to unite in closer relationship the military departments of American universities and colleges. " One event that allowed members to meet and work together was the an- nual Scabbard and Blade Invitational Drill Meet, held in the spring. Drill teams from Texas high schools and universities attended the one-day meet at Memorial Stadium. " The thing that I like most about Scabbard and Blade is the camaraderie that the different ser- vices are able to enjoy, " said Scab- bard and Blade Captain Michael Snyder. " I feel the organization is more a professional than social organization because you ' re meeting people in the same line of business, and you really pull for each other even though there are some differences, " Messinger said. " You can help yourself, help your service, and help your country. " Sharlct Wagner I UT ' s military departments are united through tri-service organizations such as Scabbard and Blade.

Their war zone was usually a foot- ball field, their weapons were never loaded, and no blood was ever shed, but for members of the Buccaneers Drill Team, disorderly marching would have had the same results as for a fighting army defeat. Rather than the spoils of war for a victorious army, the reward for disciplined mar- ching was a trophy. But like the bloody battle, the trophy was never won easily. Team members met in front of Russell A. Steindham Hall in the afternoon for one hour, five days a week, to prepare for the four spring drill com- petitions. Besides attending the UT drill meet, teams competed at Texas A M, Tulane and Trinity universities. The annual meet at Tulane in New Orleans was the most popular of the four. The competition was held dur- ing Mardi Gras and featured 25 top teams from around the country. " If you do well there, you ' re nationally ranked, " Buccaneers commander Scott Hencshel said. According to an eighth century military saying, " One volunteer is worth 10 pressed men. " All 15 Buc- caneers were volunteers who were willing to dedicate time and energy to perfecting their skills. " The people that join Buccaneers usually have a little extra than what everyone else has, " Hencshel said. " It ' s a lot of hard work, and if you put that much in, you ' ve got something extra. We ' re competitors, " he said. Buccaneers showed their com- petitive spirit daily through their practice sessions. Members worked toward a common goal of perfection and formed lasting friendships. " Everybody gets marching in their regular ROTC activities, " Hencshel said. " These people have something more. They ' re the people I trust the most. " Sharlet Wagner l FIRST ROW: Maj.

But actually, these were also the names of jet aircraft which cadets of the Air Force ROTC would be flying. Flying in the Air Force was the ultimate goal for most of the cadets in the program, but other fields in the Air Force such as engineering, com- puter science and flight medicine also attracted cadets. The Air Force ROTC program entered its 36th year at The Universi- ty in 1983, boasting over 150 members. " To gain confidence, " Cadet Colonel Brus Messinger said, " to work with others more effectively and to get involved in more activities is the reason I joined. " To gain leadership and manage- ment skills and, of course, to fly in the Air Force, were other often- repeated reasons for joining the program.

AirKorrrKOK AIR FORCE ROTC The cadets participated in drills at Memorial Stadium every week but that was just a small portion of the many functions in which they par- ticipated. Daily morning workouts and active participation kept members of the Corps in fine physical condition. All of this conditioning came in handy in the Commander ' s Cup Competition. These monthly spor- ting events pitted the detachment staff and each ROTC class against the other. The class with the most points at the end of the year won the coveted Commander ' s Cup Trophy. Freshman cadets were taught how to correctly wear the uniform and perform the military customs and courtesies associated with it. The sophomore academic program taught the history of air power.

Air Force ROTC 345 AIR FORCE ROTC sophomore cadets took on more responsibility becoming flight sergeants and guideon bearers. Also, each sophomore cadet had an ad- ministrative job under the supervi- sion of a cadet officer. After surviving the grueling four- week field training camp in the sum- mer, the junior cadets finally became cadet officers, occupying positions from administrative officers to squadron commanders. Their academic subjects focused on the development of management and leadership skills. After three years, the senior cadets finally made it to the top. They were now cadet majors, It. colonels or top- ranked colonels. The senior academic classes focused on national security and world affairs, preparation for a second lieutenant commission in the U.S. Air Force. Selling programs and renting seat cushions at the home football games were major money makers. The money earned helped to pay for the Corps parties and the Corps yearbook. Weekly TGIFs, parties and picnics were some of the favorite social func- tions of the Corps. The Corps Dining In and the Military Ball outshined all the others. The long awaited formal banquet was complete with military tuxedos and witty toasts. Though their uniforms brought to mind military stereotypes, Air Force cadets broke the traditional image with lifestyles similar to the average student in all but one respect they sought different futures.

" To support the cadets, the Angels conducted their Secret Angel pro- gram during the summer of 1983. Secret Angels wrote letters and sent gifts to sophomore cadets attending summer camps at various Air Force bases across the country. The Angels also supplied baked goods for the cadets in a Drill Surprise. To help prospective members of the Arnold Air Society, an honorary group within the AFROTC, through their pledgeships, Angels were big sisters to Arnie pledges. Angels also showed their support by attending weekly TGIFs beer calls at local bars and restaurants, noon drills every Tues- day, the Corps Formal in the spring and each semester ' s Dining Out, for- mal military dinners during which Angel Flight and Arnold Air Society pledges were initiated. In February, Angels attended the Area Conclave in San Angelo, where area projects were discussed. In April they attended the National Conclave held in Tucson, Ariz.

Payne Squadron of The University ' s Air Force ROTC. To cap off the society ' s busy schedule, the Arnold Air Society, with its sister organization, Angel Flight, held its long awaited Dining Out. This biannual formal banquet included the society ' s induction and award ceremonies. After the Dining Out, everyone went home and chang- ed into a more comfortable attire and headed for the " After-Party. " This party welcomed the new members and showed them the fun side of be- ing a new Arnie. E. Corey West Maj.

Arnold Air Society 349 ARMY ROTC RAINING FOR TOMORROW From studying camouflage techni- ques to rappelling down the side of Memorial Stadium, to enjoying a for- mal dinner, members of the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps spent the year in training to become commissioned officers in the United States Army. Beginning with the freshman year, Army ROTC primed cadets for military careers. Military Science I ' s, as freshmen were called, were in- troduced to the basics of drills at weekly practices in Memorial Stadium. Two-hour classes laid the foundations for practical applications of military skills, while rappelling missions down the side of Memorial Stadium tested physical skills. A barbecue at the end of the strenuous week-long field training exercise held in the Fall, 1983, show- ed the Military Science I ' s that Army ROTC was not all work. Freshmen also had an opportunity to meet the members of Army ROTC at beer busts, stadium cleanup and the din- ing out at the end of the semester. Spring break gave second year cadets an opportunity to see the tougher side of Army life. While others soaked up the sun at the beach, Military Science I I ' s got more sun than they wanted on a survival trek around Big Bend National Park. Cadets studied survival techniques that moved them one step closer to an Army commission. Andrew Jackson, Military Science II cadet, said the year helped prepare him for becoming a commissioned of- ficer. " It helps us by watching other people trying to lead and watching how they turn out. It ' s learning from others, " he said. At the beginning of the third year, the Military Science Ill ' s had a big decision to make. They asked themselves whether they really wanted to continue in the program. If the answer was yes, they signed a contract agreeing to accept a commis- sion as a second lieutenant upon graduation. " It ' s an important time, " Military Science IV, Mike Neville, said. " You have to decide if you really want to go through with it. " The third year was devoted to preparation for the summer, when the Military Science Ill ' s joined cadets from around the country at a summer camp in Kansas. It was The University ' s policy not to send anyone to camp who could not pass the Army Physical Readiness Test. Cadets had to do two minutes of sit-ups followed by two I minutes of push-ups, ending with a two mile run completed in a certain | time. Exercises at Camp Mabry prepare AROTC cadets for conditions they may encounter as office 350 Army ROTC ARMY ROTC s Policy MI As usual, nothing goes as planned, and you ' re always having to make a decision on what to do, " Neville said. Ptysicil Juniors had weekly physical training exercises and took the test once each month. Since summer camp was at- tended by cadets from around the country, it gave the Army an oppor- tunity to evaluate the cadets in com- parison with their peers. The camp was geared toward leadership training and testing. Each day a new group of cadets was assign- ed to be cadet commanders. " As usual, nothing goes as planned, and you ' re always having to make a deci- sion on what to do, " Neville said. " You find you ' re relying on yourself and nobody else at that point. But in the end, you really feel like you ' ve done something. " With the beginning of their senior years, the cadets filled out " dream sheets " indicating which branch of the Army they wished to enter. Field maneuvers teach AROTC cadets how to handle situations in a real environment. MILITARY SCIENCE IVS: FIRST ROW: Anna Louise Jackson. SE- COND ROW: Daniel Joseph Warrick, Nancy Carol Burns.

" Just about everybody gets one of their top few choices, " said 1st Lt. Susan Healy. Seniors spent the year gaining the leadership skills necessary to make good officers. With guidance from the Army officers, Military Science IVs ran the Army ROTC program through the cadet commander and her staff. " The guidance the real Ar- my officers provide is extensive, " Healy said. " It ' s a good learning pro- gram. They pretty much leave us alone until we make a mistake, then we learn from our mistakes. " Leland Nichols practices camouflage techniques on Eric Mathison.

" This last year has been very important in that the whole crux of the material has been on the practical things you have to do on the job. The whole point of this year is to prepare us for being se- cond lieutenants, " Neville said. Military Science IVs also gained valuable leadership experience leading field training exercises for the freshmen, sophomores and juniors. This experience helped relate the classroom learning with the real-life situations they might encounter as officers in the Army. From a concealed position.

Army ROTC I ARMY ROTC At the three field training exercises held during the year, senior cadets gave instructions in combat techni- ques such as camouflage, defense positions and rally points. The field training exercises taught the Military Science IVs how to plan a large, in- tricate battle. " It ' s kind of neat in the end because you realize you have created something and it came together and it all worked out, " Neville said. Studying military science was not all that attracted students. People joined for a variety of reasons. " It has tremendously increased my leader- ship potential, " Neville said. " I used to be a kind of person who ' d sit back of the class and wish it would hurry up and be over. I ' ve gotten more and more aggressive, " he said. Cadet Matt Mines had different reasons: " Commissioned as a United States Army officer the ability to be a leader when you ' re 21. And you get to fly the best helicopters. " Sharlet Wagner Edgar A.

PRAETORIAN GUARD OLDING SUPERIOR OFFICERS " The Praetorian Guard produces better officers, " according to Jon Hall, commanding officer of the tri- service social and professional organization. The Guard, he said, had the same goals as the service, but was more intense in their pursuit. To properly prepare and test themselves for wartime conditions that they might later be subjected to, the Guard ' s members learned to act decisively when subjected to the high pressure of quick decisions made amidst flurries of commands from all sides. Guard members also learned to work as a unit through such activities as scavenger and treasure hunts. Most importantly, each member had to realize the essentiality of presen- ting a strong and positive appearance at all times. Hall reinforced that doctrine, say- ing, " No matter what situation you are in, military or otherwise, it is necessary to present the image of a stable, well-organized and function- ing group despite any problems or confusion. " Hall said of the program, " We don ' t make anyone do anything they can ' t do, but we do expect them to show special effort. " Of equal importance in molding superior officers was the promotion of tri-service interaction and understanding. The Praetorian Guard provided its members with an important orientation to the armed forces as a whole. For instance, Guards were taught how to address and salute members of each of the service branches. For a change of ; pace, fun activities such as the tri- service track meet helped to provide a closer and more relaxed atmosphere. To truly set themselves above the average officer, Guard members were encouraged to broaden their horizons. They were prompted to , take their college educations serious- j ly, branching out into other campus activities in addition to their military responsibilities. Hall said, " Because the military can be very restricting and often funnels one into a narrow area, we strive to make our members expose themselves to things outside of the military and to bring their military and civilian lives into a more healthy balance.

The Centennial flag will be lowered by an Honor Guard of the Reserve Officer Training Corps, ROTC, and will be presented to me for placement in The University ' s ar- chives. Gunnery Sergeant Arispe, please lower the Centennial flag. " These words, by University Presi- dent Peter T. Flawn, were the cue for the ROTC Honor Guard to lower the Centennial flag which flew over the Main Mall from Feb. 4, 1983 to Dec. 9, 1984. The Longhorn Band ' s drums rolled and bugles sounded as the Honor Guard lowered the flag. Then Mid- shipman Michael Hardebeck, representing the Navy ROTC unit, presented the flag to President Flawn. Jon P. Newton, chairman of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System said that the Centennial flag was a part of The University ' s history and symbolized a new unity for The University community. " The Board of Regents has, on many occasions, agreed that The University ' s Centennial observance has been expertly designed and ex- ecuted, and that it has been of great service to The University, " he said.

A ustin. Images of dedicated politicians, studious professors, clean- cut businessmen and sturdy construction workers, free-spirited artists and sports fans, ambitious students and swinging singles - an eclectic bunch, each person seemingly leading his own life. But not really. No man is an island, British poet John Donne once said. And so it was with Austin and its vital association with the generous students of The University of Texas. While Austin residents donated time and financial aid to both local and national charities, UT students provided a wealth of energy toward assisting with these groups; they became auxiliaries to the much larger whole. It was not unusual to be approached by the Posse at street lights as 3 they solicited change for cerebral palsy, or to watch Circle K ' ers roller skate with children from the Austin State School for the Deaf, or even to see APO blood drops asking for 30 minutes and a pint of blood. The motivation behind this activity was plain, simple love. A concern for fellow man. A desire to reach out and touch someone. The University and Austin.

LPHAP10 HEA VY ON TRADITION AND SERVICE Becoming a member of some cam- pus clubs did not require much effort from a student. Becoming a member of Alpha Phi Omega required much more than signing a name to a roster and atten- ding a few meetings. APO pledges completed 30 hours of service through 14 projects and passed three tests before becoming actives. " It ' s rough, " said pledge Kevin Smith. " You have 14 projects to do and you don ' t realize how much work you have until you start. " " It does take a lot of time, " said pledge Ann Gruszynski, " but after all that work you appreciate being an ac live more. " Service was divided into three areas campus service, community service and service to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America. The three divisions were a bit misleading considering the number of projects. Pledges formed their own opinions about the activities. " I enjoyed taking the puppies to the retirement home because the peo- ple appreciated it, and the puppies did, too, " said Gruszyski, referring to the Pet-a-Pup project. Rat Patrol, a community clean-up project where members combed neighborhoods collecting junk and trash, was " really gross, " Smith said, " but the people made it a lot of fun. " APO never had a shortage of peo- ple, which allowed the group to take a more active role in service projects. " When a club ' s not active at all, you have too many people and too lit- tle to do. In APO, though, you have a lot of people and more than enough work, " Smith said. The fraternity ' s size had different effects on the pledges. " I felt much more a part of UT, " said pledge Judy Engibous, " because whenever something ' s happening on campus, APO ' s a part of it. " " You make a lot of strong friend- ships, " Smith added. " If it wasn ' t fun, you ' d get bored quickly. " " I joined because I liked what it stands for service, friendship and leadership, " Gruszynski said.

Members or Alpha Phi Omega join to form a Rat Patrol to clean up Bast Austin by collecting litter and debris. Alpha Phi Omega 361 ALPHA PI OMEGA FROM FLAG RUNS TO FLAG DROPS . A 900-pound mass carried by 80 people dressed in orange and white stormed the football field prior to UT home football games. Was it three in- jured Longhorn players being carried by devoted medics? No. It was the largest Texas flag in the world being toted by members of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. The flag, which measured 40 by 22 yards an area of 880 square yards and covered one-fifth of a football field, was one of the organization ' s oldest and most well-known trademarks. Presented to Texas Gov. Price Daniel by the Mississippi band dur- ing the 1962 Dixie Classic (now known as the Cotton Bowl), the flag changed hands several times before coming to its final home with APO. Daniel placed it in the care of the Longhorn Band, which then turned it over to the athletics department, which, entrusted it to APO. The 1983-84 flag was actually the fourth edition. The first two flags, made of cotton muslin, had since disintegrated. The third, which was somewhat out of shape, was still in use at basketball games and parades. The most recent flag was produced in 1978 of extra heavy-duty nylon sail cloth and was bordered with heavy- weight rope in order to safeguard against its falling apart during the famous " flag runs, " when members ran the flag around the field in dif- ferent patterns to rouse the spirit of Texas football fans. Another football spirit special was the APO Spot Yell. This giant cheer took place on the 50-yard line at the end of every home game, when members formed a circle and moved in time to a chant. Following the president ' s lead, both active members and alumni would go through the motions which spelled out the word " Spot, " in honor of the unofficial mascot of the club ' s founding years. All were able to meet new people in the chapter and renew old acquaintances. Struggling three-leggers enjoy the APO picnic. APOers don ' t let the wind get them down as they fold up the Texas Flag after the March 2 Hag drop from the Main Building. 362 Alpha Phi Omega AMERIC W HEART APO sponsors a " Tub Pull " which enabled them to collect $1100 for the American Heart Association. The effort exemplary of APO is evident in the tug-of-war at the Pledge- Active Picnic at City Park. Alumni as well as new members could be recognized by their unique uniforms, which consisted of boots, blue jeans and embroidered white shirts. Deemed the " Shineboys, " these shirts became an official part of APO after their first appearance dur- ing the national convention in 1956. But the Shineboys were only one distinguishing mark of the UT Alpha Rho chapter of APO. At least once at every convention, certain delegates climbed to the top of the resident hotel to proudly hoist a Texas flag. The UT chapter also sponsored a breakfast for national officers of these conventions and was the only chapter in APO history to boast of two national presidents. Members were also known to drink a beverage called Alpha Rhozone at all major APO functions. The heavily guarded secret was developed on the way to a national convention from a bottle of fruit juice in the trunk of a member ' s car. After many hours in the hot sun of Long Beach, Calif., the captive juice under- went a " miracle transformation " (not to be confused with fermentation). The recipe was handed down from president to president. Elmer T. Zilch Jr. provided yet another tradition for APO. Zilch, a statuette, was the l ' 2 foot patron saint of the chapter. Born to Orange Jacket mascot Egyptianella soon after his father, Zilch Sr., was brutal- ly kidnapped in 1953 by evil engineers, Zilch Jr. earned his own reputation of reliability. Zilch attend- ed every APO function and closely followed his father ' s footsteps. Zilch was in constant fear for his life, as pledges were forever trying to steal him from the actives ' clutches in a never-ending attempt to imitate the engineers. For Zilch, an elaborate set of rules concerning when and where to steal him was created. The result was usually some sort of degradation and humiliation on the part of the losing opponents, but all was done in the spirit of friendly competition. Members also sponsored and ran the campus elections and served as ushers for all major University events, allowing Alpha Phi Omega to carry on its traditions alongside The University ' s tradition of excellence. Rachel Norrod Alpha Phi Omega 363 SPECIAL REASONS FOR EX-ISTENCE " Mark your calendars 25 years from tonight we ' re having a reu- nion, " John Stuart, Ex-Students Association member and reunion cochairman, said. Stuart was speaking to alumni from the class of 1958, who were celebrating their 25th anniversary. The class was the largest turnout of any reunion in the history of The University. A slide series, scrapbook style, was shown with popular 1950s tunes in the background. Jim and Laura Sadler recalled the regular jaunts to Scholz Garten and even their admis- sions to The University. " The toughest thing about getting in was finding a room; there was no SAT, " Sadler said. Al Cisneros and Bob Spann both said the most important thing they learned while attending The Univer- sity was self-discipline. " It ' s definitely one thing you ' ll rely on all your life, " Cisneros said. For some, this self-discipline paid off in the guise of the 1983 Distinguished Alumnus Awards, given each year by the Ex-Students Association. Respected as the highest honor given by The University, the DAAs were given to Jane Weinert Blumberg, Virginia Harris Cockrell, Joe Judson King and Sheikh Ab- dullah Tariki in 1983. Continuing the tradition which began in 1958, Bob Dorsey, president of the Ex-Students Association, announced, " Tonight ' s presentation draws sharp focus to the fact that this University ' s excellence is evi- dent in the accomplishments of its alumni. " The ESA offered numerous occa- sions for area Longhorns to gather. Most commonly seen were the pre- and post-game parties for all football games. Other activities included the " Fly- ing Longhorns, " which offered worldwide travel opportunities for in- terested members with international alumni. ESA also awarded com- petitive scholarships to outstanding UT students. Anne Eby For those athletically inclined, the Travis County Texas Exes offered 700 runners a three-mile course for the Forty Acres Fun Run Nov. 12. 364 Ex-Students ' Association COMMITTEE THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS Eight hundred people standing on one another ' s shoulders would pro- bably tower 3,300 feet above the up- per deck of Memorial Stadium. Although this may have seemed like an excessively large number of peo- ple, the Student Involvement Com- mittee boasted this number as the largest organization on campus in 1983-84. Being strictly voluntary, the SIC brought together students of many different persuasions and ideoligies. It was made up of seven subcom- mittees and an executive board. The seven subcommittees ranged from very large ones such as Athletics Committee to rather small ones such as the Scholarship Committee. The executive board consisted of the chairpersons of each subcommittee along with the presidents of 15 cam- pus organizations. The SIC played a major role in the Round Up parade and the March 2 celebration of Texas Independence Day by recruiting and coordinating the large number of groups par- ticipating in these activities. Concur- rent with many other Centennial ac- tivities, the SIC also hosted the Distinguished Alumnus ' Award Stu- dent Reception. On top of these large-scale ac- tivities, each committee worked toward specific goals. The Public Relations Committee sponsored the Freshman Fling in September and the Senior Send-off in December and May. The Athletics Committee held ac- tivities such as the Athletes ' Revue, a reception for all UT athletes, to sup- port intercollegiate teams. The Internship Committee provid- ed students with information concer- ning work as pages for the United States Congress. Even though the members of the SIC never tried to stand on each others ' shoulders, they did play an important part in The University by getting involved.

Student Involvement Committee 366 IT ISN ' T GREEK TO THEM Longhorn football fans had long appreciated the infamous Tejas flashcard section, but in 1983-84 the computer-processed art cards gained national recognition. In its Sept. 20 issue on college campuses around the U.S., Newsweek noted Tejas ' unique way of combining spirit and technology. This uniqueness, this difference between Tejas and other fraternities on campus, gave the organization its source of pride. The 35 Tejas members were not only involved on campus, but also concerned with the citizens of Austin. Tejas held Sunday afternoon picnics and a Christmas party with students of the Texas School for the Blind and the Texas School for the Deaf. On March 2, 1984, 75 staff and faculty members were invited to Te- jas ' s annual Texas Independence Day breakfast. Roy Vaughn, executive director of the Ex-Students Associa- tion, was the featured speaker. Lectures were also a part of Tejas activities. Every Thursday night for the past 40 years, Tejas members had gotten together for a combination of social and academic fun a lecture. " Since academics is stressed in our fraternity, we take great pride in this series of lectures, " said Tony Menghetti, president of Tejas. " The lectures offer members useful infor- mation in a relaxed manner. " All that was required to be con- sidered for membership was that one have interests in the fraternity and be a UT student. " In our fraternity, common in- terests are not so important as diver- sity, " Menghetti said. " We are made up of people from all different walks of life, all different races, creeds and religions that is what makes us unique.

The money rais- ed went to the American Heart Association. About 100 people par- ticipated in the six-hour dance. When asked if she grew tired of all the exercise, participant Chris Coffee replied, " No, we got five minute breaks every hour. It was fun. " On Feb. 15, 1984, the Orange Jackets threw a birthday party for the residents of Delwood Nursing Home in Austin. Pam Patterson, a new member, said, " It ' s nice for us to get together and do some good for those who are less fortunate than us. " In the fall, 1983, the group helped organize and decorate a " Thank you, Austin " party. United Way gave the party to thank Austin residents who contributed to the cause. Besides participating in communi- ty services, Orange Jackets hosted the Centennial Showcase, Engineer- ing Banquet and Dad ' s Day. Representing all areas of campus life and selected on the basis of leadership, involvement and service to the university, Orange Jacket members considered themselves of- ficial representatives of UT.

Circle K, don ' t you understand? " said Janet Miller, president of Circle K, at a meeting welcoming prospective members. " Friends, " she went on, " either you ' re closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge or you are not aware of the opportunity for service indicated by the presence of the Circle K club at this University. " Miller was astonished at the number of people who did not know what Circle K was. " People come up to us asking if we ' re a dude ranch or a creaky grocery chain, " she said, " when what we really are is the largest service organization nationwide. " Also an international group, Circle K enjoyed many leadership oppor- tunities. There were club, district and international offices to fill. And the district and international conven- tions in Ft. Worth and Milwaukee let members refine leadership skills and meet Circle K counterparts. Service was the club ' s purpose, and members worked with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Easter Seals and handed out Larry Hagman stop smoking " wrist poppin ' red rub- ber bands " on the West Mall during their Great American Smokeout ral- ly. Circle K ' s UT service projects in- cluded directing traffic at the Centennial Showcase and manning voting booths during student elections. Members skated and swam with the children from Austin state schools. And bingo was a favorite ice breaker at the Austin Manor Nursing Home. Because of the club ' s size, members spent most of their time with the children and senior citizens on a per- sonal basis. " We ' re people who mark the difference between helping the world and knocking it, " Miller said. Joel Alegria FIRST ROW: Angela Lenora Huff, Anne Reading Eby.

How could they choose Plan II, which had a well-rounded curriculum, while the rest of the students were trying to figure out what Plan I was? Enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts, Plan II majors took special courses such as World Composition and Literature, and Problems of Knowledge and Evaluation in addi- tion to regular liberal arts courses. In- tended as an honors program, Plan II offered many students a challenge while providing increased job availability after college. Admitted through application, Plan II students had to maintain a 3.0 GPA. Founded in the Fall of 1981, the Plan II Student Association provided guidance for and communication bet- ween the 550 members of the pro- gram. Due to its exclusiveness, Plan II was referred to as a small universi- ty within a large university. Made up of the Steering and Freshman coun- cils, the association gave Plan II members an opportunity to interact outside the classroom by meeting in a more social atmosphere. Weekly discussions on various topics such as Gothic horror novels and interrelations of art and literature were hosted by the associa- tion to give program members a wider knowledge of liberal arts topics. In these lectures, professors from different departments were asked to speak on topics that would initiate discussions. In this way, students could hear what the professors had to say, ask questions and even voice their own opinions. This was done to benefit the students through a broadening of knowledge on topics that may not be discussed in their various classes. It also helped to pro- mote more freedom of thought among the students. Sanjay Chandra FIRST ROW: Colleen Millhouse Smith, John Lawrence Stansbury, Mark Barr McClellan, Allison Cocke, Melinda B.

The program gave its students the opportunity " to get an Ivy League education at a public university, as well as exposure to faculty and materials on a more advanced level, " he said. By invitation only, admission into the exclusive program was based on the GPAs of freshman students as well as their SAT scores. Approx- imately 80 students out of the col- lege ' s 10,000 population participated and were required to maintain a 3.2 GPA. Students and faculty chosen for their excellence in knowledge and teaching got to know each other on a one-to-one basis. Each class had its own faculty adviser with whom they could discuss problems and turn to for advice. The fact that Honors graduates could attend graduate school with their first-year courses waived pro- vided an additional incentive for being a part of the program. The association itself sponsored all -class parties monthly, during which students and faculty could mingle, as well as a formal in Spring, 1984. The program ' s board of directors, which consisted of two directors from each of the three classes along with a student chair coordinated these activities. As compared to the larger Plan II program in the College of Liberal Arts, the business honors program limited its size to preserve quality. " We ' re as good in quality of educa- tion and may become as well known as Plan II in time, " McAuliffe said.

Founded March 2, 1983, SURE began in response to the increased risk of evening assault on the campus. Operating on a volunteer basis from 8 p.m. to midnight Sundays through Thursdays, escorts walked any student, male or female, to or from any part of campus. To qualify as a volunteer, one had to be a UT student and have at least two valid campus references. Even though calls were few and the budget low, those in the group felt their efforts were worth it. " We figure that if we ' ve been able to pre- vent at least one rape, we ' ve been able to justify our existence, " said Logan Tate, also co-director.

NIVERSITYLULAC LA TIN AMERICAN CUL TURE CL UB The University League of United Latin American Citizens this year had two members on the Government Affairs Committee of the state LULAC. During the state and local election campaigns, this committee research- ed issues important to the Hispanic community, such as bilingual educa- tion and employment opportunities. At the state and district forums, all of the candidates for a certain position were invited to discuss the commit- tee ' s stand on the prepared issues. To promote the advancement of Hispanics socially, politically and culturally on the UT campus as well as nationwide, the University LULAC was formed four years ago by UT students and members of the Austin chapter of LULAC, said Carla Valenzuela. The charter members hoped to boost the membership to ensure the organization ' s continua- tion, she said. " LULAC taught me everything from how to organize a group on cam- pus, how to develop and achieve goals and how to delegate authority, " Valenzuela said. Traci Graves foiUTtott. Judith A.

NO, GDE As Special Olympics participants struggled to reach the finish line, members of Gamma Delta Epsilon waited patiently to catch them. The competitors were not always sure when to stop running, so members were dubbed the official " buggers " to help bring the races to a close. This activity allowed the club to uphold its motto: " Friendship through service. " GDE ' s purpose was to provide aid to the mentally re- tarded and physically handicapped, create friendships and build members ' leadership qualities. This 30-member group was originally part of the sorority which branched off from Alpha Phi Omega. Now the only chapter left in the United States, GDE accepted both male and female members. Participants worked at Memorial Stadium clean-ups and Daily Texan paper stuffings to raise funds for their service projects. By holding an Easter egg hunt for the Austin School for the Deaf and sponsoring an aerobic dance class and fair at the Austin State School for the Mentally Retarded, the members kept busy. Even more of their time was spent trick-or-treating to raise money for UNICEF and cleaning out Littlefield Fountain. The club worked at the Texas Union ' s haunted house at Halloween and manned ballot tables at the University Co-Op elections. After winter break, members took time to relax at a welcome back party for themselves, as well as to give pro- spective members a chance to get a look at the club. They also held a banquet at the Marriott Hotel, where outstanding members received awards for their support and achieve- ment. " Letting people express themselves and their ideas, working as a group, " said club president Wayne Wang, " and just the joy of providing service satisfied me.

The festivities included a talent show, a cultural fashion show of Malaysian garments, a slide presentation and dinner for all guests. The group also participated in International Fairs held at Jester Center Oct. 29 and the University Baptist Church Nov. 10. The group also celebrated various other holidays, including Hari Raya, the Muslim New Year, Deepavali, the Indian New Year and the Chinese New Year. " Almost every weekend we have something going on: barbecues and dancing parties. Our functions are always open, " said Alex Chan, president of the group. There were no requirements for membership. All Malaysians were welcome to join the group, and others were encouraged to be honorary members. Twenty students did so, and the only restrictions placed on them were that they were not allowed to vote in the club ' s general officer election nor to hold office. Members had the opp ortunity to get to know other Malaysians, share experiences and help each other in academic work. In 1983, there was a large number of Malaysian transfer students atten- ding the University. Many of those students chose to attend the UT because of its low tuition and climate similar to Malaysia ' s. The group strived to make the University ' s 200 Malaysian students feel at home in a foreign country. This was accomplished by providing temporary housing in Austin and answering questions the new students might have had about their new environment. " The purpose of the group is to make Malaysia better known, help new Malaysian students to adapt and try to keep traditions and cultures of home, " said Chan.

Malaysian Students 375 YOU ' VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY Two Guatemalean women on a na- tionwide tour stopped in Austin to discuss the current events in Central America from a female point of view. They explained the political and domestic activities of Guatemalan women. Cosponsored by the UT chapter of the National Organization for Women, along with the institute of Latin American Studies Student Association, the program was one of many organized by the chapter. NOW was the largest women ' s rights organization in the country. The University NOW chapter was composed of 91 members, spanning from conservative to liberal, with students, faculty and even 12 men. " To eliminate sexism through the education of The University of Texas population and lobbying our elected officials to ensure that our perspec- tive is represented, was NOW ' s objec- tive, " co-coordinator Lynn Bacon said. Social and special activities were aimed at achieving this goal. Aside from two meetings a month, NOW had various other informative activities such as " brown bag lun- ches. " This lunchtime series involved films and speakers, including Meg Wilson of the Texas Political Caucus and Lillian Faderman, author of Scotch Verdict. Programs with films and discus- sions were also presented by NOW. Dina Testoni Schultz, a NOW member of Women Against Por- nography, gave a presentation on pornography which provoked a good discussion among the people who at- tended. Through these informative actions, NOW wished to bring change in the status of women. Unlike many campus organiza- tions, NOW wished to recruit and make faculty members more active in the group. Membership recruitment and a voter registration drive were two yearly events. At the beginning of the fall semester, University NOW held a " Let them eat cake " bake sale. Many found it amusing that a feminist group had a bake sale, but this bake sale raised money, consciousness and spirits. Desserts were sold in politically enlightening boxes statistics and facts about women ' s hampered freedom. Bacon explained how NOW was not a political organization. " NOW provides information from a feminist perspective. We realized there are negative stereotypes about the organization, but I feel that the positive things we do for women outweighs them.

Selected during interviews con- ducted by track coaches and ex- ecutive committee members, those selected to the Texas Relays Student Committee had their work cut out for them. According to Pepe Martinez, chair- man, the purpose of the group was " to put on the most efficient relays and get as many fans as possible into the seats of Memorial Stadium. " Atrtracting well over 1,000 top competitors from high schools and colleges across the nation, the relays were considered among the best in the state. Members were trained to mark throws, time races and set up equipment. The group split into five subcom- mittees, each handling specific areas. The campus activities committee promoted the relays throughout The University area by passing out balloons and flyers. The publicity committee generated fan support in the surrounding com- munity. The Fun Run committee organized a 5-mile race, open to the public. The entries, officials and declara- tions committee handled the paper work and organized the opening ceremonies, while the programs com- mittee sold ads to local and national businesses who served as sponsors for the relays. Before the relays, all got a chance to relax at a fish fry held at Bellmont Hall. Between 500 to 1,000 coaches attended as well as the organization members, who had the privilege of being the only students in attendance. Martinez said, " It was a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun, too. You get the chance to meet as well as work with a diverse group of people.

For some, however, the Saturday afternoon of the Nov. 19 Texas-Baylor game offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Thirty-five students from the Austin Association of Retarded Citizens sat in the north endzone with the Texas Cowboys. The spectators, aged 7-35, were shuttled to the game with the Cowboys. " The kids loved it, " said Janna Starr, executive director of AARC. " It was the highlight (of the year); kids that hardly get to go anywhere got to go to the game, " she said.

Kevin Poynter and William Huthnance enjoy refreshments during Harvest Moon. As a service organization for The University, the Cowboys devoted the majority of their efforts to the AARC. The commitment began in 1954, when Jack Holland, then dean of students, suggested that the relation- ship would be beneficial to all. Since then, the Cowboys have sponsored fund raisers, assisted at the Special Olympics and done con- struction and landscaping around the center itself. Money was raised during the Sept. 24 " Holdup, " in which the Cowboys collected $10,000 in a 10-hour period at Austin intersections. The Cowboys also hosted their semi-annual benefit, Harvest Moon, Nov. 10, with entertainer John Con- lee at the Meadows in South Austin. The Cowboys sold kegs as a donation and offered a barbecue dinner before the concert. Proceeds from the even- ing neared $13,000. Benefits from the Minstrel Show April 19 at Auditorium Shores also aided AARC. Every year, the club put $6,000 in- to a scholarship designed to benefit fifth-year seniors in men ' s and women ' s athletics. The program was initiated by former Cowboy, Howard Richards. During the parade, held April 6, the 95-member group marched along the parade route. Later that day, members hosted the annual Cowboy Barbecue in the Texas Union Ballroom. Outside of its dedication to The University and the community, the Texas Cowboys were proud to recognize three Honorary Cowboys at the Texas-TCU game Nov. 12. Nominated for 1983 were University President Peter Flawn, former Dean Jack Holland and Eddie Reese, coach of the men ' s swim team. The Cowboys presented a $100,000 check before the game to Flawn and The University to fulfill a lectureship started in Sept. 1981. The money, collected by Cowboy actives and alumni, would bring a visiting pro- fessor to The University. " Without the help of the Cowboy alumni, the lectureship would not have been possible, " said Todd Kissner, fall president. " Cowboys are very proud not only to benefit The University but AARC, which is self-satisfying as volunteer work, " Kissner said. Anne Eby Texas Cowboys 379 CONTINUING TO SPUR ENTHUSIASM The Silver Spurs October 1983 rodeo offered students a chance to play cowboy for a day. For $10, UT men and women tried out on Longhorn steers for the rodeo held at the Sheriffs Posse Rodeo Arena. Those who qualified participated in the rodeo along with professional riders. The day ' s events were topped off with a concert by Jerry Jeff Walker. All proceeds went to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. March 31, 1984 was the date of another of the Spurs ' fund raising events the annual chili cook-off at Auditorium Shores on Town Lake. Anyone who registered was allowed to participate in the team chili- making contest. The Bellamy Brothers entertained the guests. " Our main philanthropy, right now, is fund raising for MDA, " said Doug Snyder, Spurs president. Dur- ing the year the Spurs raised about $40,000 sponsoring charity events and canvassing for donations. The Spurs saw the results of their year-and-a-half long effort to raise money for the Bronze Bevo. It was unveiled in front of the Frank Erwin Center Sept. 24. UT ' s mascot, the flesh-and-blood Bevo, was also the responsibility of the Spurs. Members fed the 1,200 pound steer and transported him to football games and other functions. Bevo also made appearances at elementary schools. Kay Ghahremani FIRST ROW: George Shordon Duller, Stephen Edward Sirling, Steve McMahon Nolan, Ronnie D. Deyo, Joseph Wayne McDonald, Micheal C.

The statue was presented at the Frank C. Erwin Jr. Special Events Center, to ultimately be placed on the Little Campus upon its comple- tion in August of 1985. Maquettes, miniature replicas of the bronzed Bevo, were sold by members of both organizations to raise money for an undetermined charity, possibly a University pro- fessorship or scholarship. But donating a big Bevo wasn ' t all the Texas Wranglers did.

Members also helped out at the Dardin Hills Ranch for Boys by building a baseball diamond, and the Capital Area Rehabilitation Center for Retarded Children by making repairs and doing general handiwork. " It ' s great to see people of such caliber with so much going for them go sweat for a day to help people, " said Robert Cline, president. In addition to service projects, the EH Texas Wranglers also held social ac- tivities. The organization sponsored several mixers with campus sororities throughout the year. It also spon- sored a fall semi-formal dance at the Austin Country Club and a spring formal at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. At the end of the year, a camp out was held at the Pedernales River to introduce new members to the club and its members, and to discuss plans for next year. " It was gratifying for me to see good people doing good things, and I ' m really proud of the things they ' ve done, " said Cline.

Texas Wranglers 385 A HOLD-UP OF THE BEST KIND " Okay, kids, out of the station wagon and empty your pockets of change. This is a holdup. " The Posse was out in strength dur- ing their annual Holdup for cerebral palsy, soliciting at various intersec- tions along the Drag for donations. Although most commonly known for promoting school spirit by pain- ting the store windows along the Drag during football season, the Posse also hosted a street party each semester on 25th Street, west of campus. The Posse ' s " Fire Up for OU " street party attracted over 2,000 people. The Posse only accepted second semester freshmen as new members and allowed them to remain in the organization one year. Chosen primarily for leadership and spirit, the Posse claimed a wide representa- tion of the freshman group, which in- cluded three members from each Panhellenic and Intrafraternity Council group on campus, along with 20 percent independent representation. During the Centennial Showcase, Posse members ushered at bus stops and handed out programs. They also formed a committee to promote the " Check a Dollar for a Scholar " pro- gram. Social activities also rated high on the Posse calendar, with mixers throughout the year and a casual after Thanksgiving. Sanjay Chandra The object is to " round ' em off at the pass.

The Question: Name three things found in the UT swimmers ' locker room. Of course, Bevo ' s Babes were not a permanent part of the locker room, but they could be found decorating lockers before every meet. They could also be spotted at all meets, timing the races as an insurance against computer failure. But, these 60 talented women did not spend all their time clicking stop- watches and adorning lockers. Vice president Michele Avila, who organized parties, said, " We had everything from a punk party to a Christmas semi-formal. " The Babes ' agenda included a sub party for the women ' s team, at which six-foot-long sandwiches were the fare. The annual Thanksgiving feast also won the gratitude of the swim- mers. Undergraduate swimmers were surprised with Jester raids, during which the Babes plundered the fourth floor, bringing with them vast amounts of party food and an uproarious clangor. The Babes did not limit their ac- tivities to the campus, however. They cheered and entertained the children at the State Mental Hospital, delighting them with Christmas gifts. And, a banquet the Babes hosted for the graduate Texas swimmers, the " Wets, " earned the Babes a gift barbecue in return. Support and friendship were Bevo ' s Babes key words. " We got to know our swimmers, " President Lisa Martinez said. " Instead of doing things with strangers, we did things with close friends.

The group of 60 Angels played a vital role in the spring recruitment of prospective football players. While the future Horns were in Austin for a weekend of " football talk " with coaches, the women had time to show them the UT campus and take them out on the town. The free time " gives guys a chance to be more relaxed and enjoy the pro- gram, " said Sarah Sherman, Angels ' president. Yet, the women ' s job was not strictly promotion for The Universi- ty. The girls were also responsible for the preparation of a scrapbook for the senior members of the squad. Mike Buchanan was pleased with his gift.

' .: ' : Fayefe; u What do a fajita and margarita dinners and tennis match calls have in common? They were both productions of Matchmates, the women ' s organiza- tion which promoted the men ' s ten- nis team. Members sponsored the dinner; two mixers and biweekly get- togethers with the players for beers and burgers. In order to lift the team ' s spirits even more, the Matchmates filled players ' rooms with decorations, cookies and candy. Ellen Luce, co-president, said, " I just think it ' s a shame that our guys are so good and yet people don ' t take the time to watch. Since we know how frustrating that can be, we just tried to encourage the members and friends to go to the matches. " In order to promote that atten- dance, members competed to see who could recruit the most people to a match, the winner ' s reward being a keg of beer. In appreciation of the Matchmates ' work, the tennis team threw a country-western dance, barbecue dinner and beer chugging party at an alumnus ' ranch, capping off a year of service and social activities.

To The University of Texas, and to Austin, they were much more. The University was proud to have the Texas Stars as representatives at functions and competition as well as at the Frank Erwin Center. It was im- portant for the Texas Stars to " create and maintain an enthusiastic at- mosphere at the Frank Erwin Center during all the home basketball games, and also to support the team, " team director Barbara Loomis said. Having been a hit for pro basket- ball ' s Rockets in the past, on Oct. 20, 1983, the Texas Stars were invited to perform at a Houston Rockets home game. And, since the Texas Stars did not want to play favorites, they also performed during halftime for the Dallas Mavericks in February. Of course, the Longhorn basketball team benefitted from the Stars ' school spirit, too. Every weekend, the dance team was updated on the lives of the basketball players, including birthdays, injuries and whatever else might call for special attention. Cards, parties and decorations were then made to order. The Stars branched their activities in February, when the team hosted the HealthFest at Palmer Auditor- ium, greeting visitors and partici- pants with pamphlets and answers. Because the Texas Stars were such a disciplined dance team, they were invited to host the high school drill team competition in Sulpher Springs, Texas. As hosts, they performed for the high school teams, who could see firsthand the challenging choreography of college-level dance. In Austin, the Stars held a dance team workshop for high school girls interested in pursuing these more dif- ficult choreography steps. Each of the 16 members took three par- ticipants and showed them new routines. Although it was mainly a workshop to teach the girls new steps, it was also a chance for the high school girls to meet each other and get an idea of what college life had to offer them. Most of the Stars ' choreography was created by Loomis and team member Marissa McKinney. Through their direction, the Stars developed the entertaining charisma that let them be more than just a dance team. Stephen Kolander - : ..

I 390 Texas Stars MORE THAN A MEXICAN HA T DANCE When in Mexico, Michael Corona was not the average tourist searching for handmade crafts, artwork or li- quor. His shopping list included one thing in particular authentic Mex- ican costumes. Corona was the director for El Grupo Universitario de Dame y Atre Folklorico, a recreational dance group formed to promote Mexican culture and folklore. The main purpose of the group was to present culture from every region in Mexico in dance. " It was a pretty big job, considering Mexico ' s size, " Tami Townsend, the group ' s presi- dent, said. " Each region has a dif- ferent costume and dance. Right now, we have costumes from the predomi- nant regions, but we are still trying to get dresses from the Yucatan. " Reflecting a country ' s folklore was not one of the easiest tasks to under- take. With dances ranging from Norteno ' s revolutionary, western style to Jalisco ' s festive " Mexican Hat Dance, " concentration had to be intense. " When you ' re first learning, it ' s hard, " Townsend said, " but after a lot of repetition, it ' s no problem. " And with the change of style came a change of costume. Huasteca had its tight fitting dresses, while Veracruz brought a white lacy dress with embroidered aprons. In a single performance, the group may have presented three or four regions. Townsend said they were famous for their costume changes. They danced for churches on Christmas, for the Centennial Showcase, at the Hyatt, at the Texas Tavern for Chicano Night and on the West Mall on El Cinco de Mayo. Their performances took them on a tour of Austin high schools, and they even danced on Town Lake on a riverboat for a high school counselors ' convention. " It was the first time we danced on water and probably the last, " Townsend said. " It was an interesting sensation. " Practicing Monday through Thurs- day, group members tried to concen- trate on one region for two to three weeks. Hard practice usually led to relaxation, and the group often gathered for dinners and lunches. " We usually got together on our own, " Townsend said, though with their dancing shoes off for a change.

The group has become renowned as one of the finest choirs in the United States. The Chamber Singers ' traditional compact size, this year totaling 28 members, allowed them to " do uni- que programs -- sometimes all one composer or all one era, " said Nancy Casson, choir president. In 1983, the group made its debut at a fall concert on Oct. 30 in Bates Recital Hall. The concert included selections by Britten and Hindemith. " It ' s always the people that make the group special because no matter who you have, you always have a uni- que blend and you end up with a unified choral sound, " Casson said. " It ' s difficult, with the number of activities students have to choose from, to keep personnel at the level that we need. It ' s always a challenge to find the singers, " Casson said. " We hope we can maintain the tradition that Chamber Singers has had for 25 years.

The Concert Chorale and other UT choirs Christmas caroled their way around the city in an effort to raise money for the March of Dimes. In celebration of Christmas, the Chorale also participated in the annual all- choir Christmas Concert. Made up mostly of music majors who enjoyed singing classical music, the purpose of the organization, ac- cording to director Larry Guest, was to " rehearse and perform great music. " Ruth Starr, president, said that each performance was a chance " to entertain and educate its aud- diences in the classics of classical music.

One could relax amongst the bar tables, the beer mugs and the University Chorus - - well, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, anyway. The University Chorus, primarily a singing group, often enjoyed the pleasures of the Tavern after rehearsals. Friendly conversation and camaraderie cross- ed the tables, inspiring an at- mosphere of unity. But this attitude did not stop there. To insure a suc- cessful social life, the Chorus selected Bill Blureich and Shawn Kelly to serve as Party Czar and Czarina. They fulfilled their duties by lining the year with entertainment. One goal realized by the Chorus was bringing good choral music to the University, which they displayed with their fall and spring concerts. In addition, they were key components in the Christmas concert and per- formed on Dad ' s Day. Their singing skills also served as a fundraiser. " Singing Valentines " sent over the telephone did wonders for the treasury, and Christmas caroling at Highland Mall helped raise proceeds for the March of Dimes. Being one of the largest " classical " groups on campus, the University Chorus was comprised of students with different majors and diverse talents. This balance enhanced the musical team and created a number of benefits, the main one being that it allowed non-music majors to express their creative talents. The Chorus ' diversity made them easily identified with the University, an advantage while on tour. Their five day promotional tour in April in- cluded stops at Texas A M, Nicholls State University and Tulane Univer- sity. It gave the members a chance to renew old friendships as well as the opportunity to let people hear what a good intermediate chorus sounded like. President Charles Fay said, " With the kind of people in this chorus, Bourbon Street will never be the same. " Joel Alegria FIRST ROW: Ruby Ann Ramirez, Shawn E. Kelly, Leigh Anne Rives, Wendy E.

" The pur- pose of the Longhorn Singers, " Scott DeFife, public relations director, said, " is to give a student who enjoys music and singing, but who may not be a music major, a chance to do just that. " The group kicked off the year with its annual trip to Dallas on the weekend of the Oklahoma-Texas game. The group performed at local high schools and participated in a sing-off with the Oklahoma Singers. On Oct. 8, they voiced their Texas spirit at the Texas State Fair. Their numbers included " Big D " and their own version of " Grandiossa. " The group ' s fall show, Nov. 11, pro- ved to be a success as well as a sellout.

Combining their talents with those of other UT choral organizations, the Longhorn Singers caroled during the Christmas season and donated the proceeds to the March of Dimes. The group sang at the Zilker Park tree lighting. On March 3, 1984, the group was honored to be invited by the Houston chapter of the Texas Exes to sing in the Albert Thomas Convention Center in Houston. The show, at- tended by 200 people, was to raise money for scholarships. " This was a big break for us, " DeFife said. " This is helping us win recognition. " Spring time was vaudeville time for the Longhorn Singers with a Spring Show, April 14 in Hogg Auditorium. UT pride was important to the group, which ended every rehearsal with " The Eyes of Texas. " " Because our group is so diverse, " DeFife said. " Through our talent and hard work, I believe we represent UT in the finest way possible.

Longhorn Singers 397 OFBLACKN IN TUNE: VOICES IN HARMONY In existence since 1974, Innervi- sions of Blackness united black students in song. The group sang on campus and throughout the com- munity. They traveled to Houston, Dallas and El Paso, performing both contemporary and sp iritual songs. The gospel songs provided the attrac- tion, cohesion and impetus of the group. " People who were active in their churches back home can fill that part in their lives through the group, " Kitzy Burnett, president of the organization, said. The group was busy in February, 1984, during Black History month with several performances each week. On Feb. 20, they performed in Alpha Kappa Alpha ' s Black Arts Program. Also during Black History Month, In- nervisions sang at the Texas Union as part of an Afro-American Culture Committee event. In February, Innervisions attended the Black Collegiate Gospel festival in Arlington, Texas, along with other Texas colleges such as the University of Houston, Texas Christian Univer- sity and Bishop College. Spring was " a time for parents to come and see their kids perform, " said Burnett, in reference to Innervision ' s April con- cert on campus. The group also sang at the black faculty reception, spon- sored by the Afro-American Culture Committee. Every Thursday evening, the group met at the University Presbyterian Church. " It ' s uplifting and a good time to relax and get away from the books, " Burnett said. As advertisement for their group, Innervisions hung posters in dorms and around campus. They also adver- tised in The Daily Texan. Innervi- sions recruited members throughout the year. Every week, members voted on events to attend and learned new songs. Members sang two Sundays each month at Methodist and Baptist churches in the Austin community. Kay Ghahremani FIRST ROW: Monthra Rochelle Davis, Colleen F.

Ifflsvi- TO Sudan N ' S CONCERT CHOIR CHORALOGRAPHY LENDS A HAND " A new concept for the organiza- tion has been developed by our new director, Gayle Mottola, to include choralography, " Alecia Bishop, a member of the UT Women ' s Concert Choir, said. Choralography was much the same as choreography. The choir practiced hand motions and gestures with their numbers to enhance the effect. The choir brought classical music to faithful UT audiences throughout 1983-84. Pieces that were chosen to best utilize the women ' s voices in- cluded the works of Bach and Beethoven. During " International Week " at The University of Texas campus, March 22, 1984, the choir sang a popular Japanese folk song entitled " Sakura, " which means cherry blossom. They also sang Brazilian songs and a popular French tune en- titled " Ne Me Quitte Pas. " Events in the spring included the Women ' s Music Festival on April 6 at Baylor University in Waco, where The University, Baylor and Texas A M competed. The choir consisted of 30 members who practiced two days a week. The group was happy to receive interna- tional and graduate students into the organization. One of the eight graduate students, Wanda Farah, was completing her doctorate in music composition. The group hoped in future years to be able to sing some of Farah ' s compositions. The Women ' s Concert Choir also sang outside of University activities. On May 4, they entertained residents of a local nursing home. On Nov. 22, the choir sang for the Anderson High School women ' s choir. Social events included a dinner party on Dec. 4 for the choir ' s depar- ting director, Andre Thomas, who resigned at the end of the fall semester. The choir did not lose momentum when Thomas left, because as Bishop put it, " Gayle Mottola has done a great job with the choir, putting together a new program and a new concept for us.

Women ' s Concert Choir 399 THEY DON ' T PERFORM IN THE CAFETERIA " It ' s a diverse group that is unified by one thing - - music, " said Don Devous, president of the Varsity Singers, a UT " pop choir. " This year marked not only the Centennial for The University, but also the 20th an- niversary for the Varsity Singers. Over the past years, the Varsity Singers performed a great variety of popular musical selections. " Each of the members are required to go through a tryout which consists of singing, dancing and reading music. Then, we (members) are audi- tioned one by one in a mixture of the group, " said Devous. The Varsity Singers performed their annual fall concert on Nov. 4 in the Opera Lab Theater. Tributes to Manhattan Transfer and " The Wiz " were featured. The group ' s other con- certs included a holiday concert for IBM and a Christmas concert for the Friends of the Performing Arts Center, honoring Marilyn Home, the world-famous mezzo-soprano, follow- ing her Austin concert on Dec. 1. The Varsity Singers ' annual spring tour found them on the road to Dallas, and then on to New Orleans, perfor- ming concerts along the way. Devous commented on the year ' s ensemble, saying, " I think we were able to bring everybody closer together. We got lots of new ideas, lots of new blood and that ' s great. We ' ve got people from drama, finance, education, dance, art, pre- med and pre-law. It ' s brought more diversity to the group. " He attributed the group ' s success to its director, Andre Thomas. " Because of his talents, his abilities and his goals, he ' s been able to ex- pand the group to unknown limits, and I think it will continue to grow and expand under him, " Devous said. As for what Thomas expected from the group, member Rene Tamayo said, " He asks you to sell it (the music). You will have to have per- sonality.

Hell Week was the August training session for the band, during which up to 400 band prospects might be seen standing in Memorial Stadium learn- ing marching basics from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. " If anybody tells you that it ' s easy, they ' re lying, " said freshman Craig Boyd. " It was very hot and very long. And at the end of it, you have people who are pretty much devoted. " LHB prospects first attended music auditions held throughout the summer. Good performers were in- vited back for Hell Week. " There were a lot of people trying out, but it was the marching that really narrowed it down, " said Kasper. " They weren ' t only looking for good marchers, they wanted peo- ple who were enthusiastic and orange-blooded as well. " " The learning pace was very ac- celerated, " said freshman Dan Willis. " Being in the percussion section, we had to learn eight or nine cadences in a matter of days. " Though many prospects chose not to continue their LHB pursuit at the beginning of Hell Week, competition remained intense during the mar- ching auditions. " You weren ' t really competing against each other, you were com- peting against the LHB standard, " added Willis. " I had doubts whether I ' d make it or not, " added Boyd. " After going through Hell Week, it ' s pretty tough if you don ' t. " Competition, though, ended once members were selected. " You work more as a unit once you ' re a member, " Boyd said.

OURS IS BETTER THAN YOURS IS " In Fayetteville, Arkansas people were throwing things at us rocks, bottles, bricks. They were very hostile. But we gave them a very patriotic show and they ended up giv- ing us a standing ovation. " Memories such as those of Glenn Richter, director of the Longhorn Band, proved that competition bet- ween schools could become a delicate matter. Band rivals, though, were not necessarily the same schools as foot- ball rivals. " Oklahoma University is a matter of state pride, " said Richter, " but Tech, Rice and A M are the three that get our attention the most. " Texas A M University had a traditional military band. " We ' re not in the same category as A M, " Richter said, " but our rivalry comes from tradition the Longhorns and the Aggies. " " If we ' re going to A M, we ' ll play the traditional type songs ' American the Beautiful, ' the tap march - - things that are popular there. They have certain values that we want to capitalize on. " In contrast to the Aggies, Rice University had the wild Marching Owl Band. " We recognize their uni- queness, " Richter said. " They are heavily dependent on script and are pure enjoyment. Rice wants to make the audience laugh and they are very successful. " For Rice, we play lighter music. We try to stay away from the classical pieces since that ' s what they make fun of. " According to Richter, Texas Tech University was LHB ' s biggest rival in the Southwest Confe rence. " They want to be just like us, " Richter said. " They try to have a big- ger size and a bigger sound. They play similar music and they get very technical when it comes to marching. " I ' m very proud of this group. We have a very strong reputation among university bands, " Richter said. " I ' ve seen the West Coast, the Big Ten, the Big Eight and other conference bands, and Texas remains one of the best in the nation. " Richter said this distinguishing factor was due to their depth of power where the quality of the top half of the players will equal the bot- tom half. Competition for places was a factor for excellence within the band. With two-thirds of the band members returning, only 100 positions were left open to incoming freshmen. " With 200 people trying out, this gave us a chance to select the best players, " Richter said. " They join because they want to be part of a quality group. That in itself is the answer. " Joel Alegria Longhorn Band 403 LONGHORN BAND STILL NO TIME TO SLACK OFF During the off-season, the Longhorn Band was able to relax - just lay back and breathe. Well - sort of. The band marches were replaced by concert music. Four-hour rehear- sals took the place of early morning marches, and the band broke up into three concert bands. Some band members played with the Longhorn Jazz Ensemble, the wind ensemble or the symphony in- stead of one of the concert bands. The concert bands tended to be less time-consuming than marching season, so LHB members were able to carry heavier course loads. Even with the lighter practices, there was so much going on during the spring semester it was hard to believe that any LHB member could handle a heavier course load. The band played the Football Awards Banquet on Feb. 4 as well as the Centennial Flag Lowering Ceremony. During March, more of the same commitments were carried through. Council meetings were held every Tuesday to confirm and plan new ex- hibitions, parties and other business. Such other business included reviewing band members ' letter re- quirements, reminiscing about the LHB raquetball tournament and planning the next party. The band ' s kicker party, held at Shady Springs Party Barn on March 31, featured the country-western band Family Tradition.

One of the more enjoyable events during the off-season was LHB ' s ap- pearance at the rodeo and livestock show held at the new Texas Exposi- tion and Heritage Center. After their performance, band members were treated to food and drink in a special LHB tent. When their appetites waned, they returned to the rodeo grounds for a Willie Nelson concert, at which they were treated to an open bar. Not all of the fun was centered on special events in Austin. The band held pep rallies at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for the Rice and Baylor foot- ball games on Sept. 30 and Nov. 18, respectively, and in return the Hyatt lowered the fee on the ballroom reser- vations for the band ' s 1984 Annual Longhorn Band Banquet. Throughout the spring semester, freshman tryouts were held and cur- rent band members worked with the potential Longhorns to help them find a place in the band. Other engagements included the Texas Relays on April 6, the Honors Convocation on April 14 and com- mencement at the Main Building. The spring semester was the off- season for the Longhorn Band, but was it really a time for band members to lay back and take it easy? Stephen Kolander Band members hoot and holler after practice.

Longhorn Band 406 LONGHORNBAND WOMAN A T THE HELM OF LHB Women have been allowed to join the Longhorn Band since 1956, but it wasn ' t until 1983 that one was elected president. " I feel it was just a matter of time and being the right person for the job, " said Kathy Gatton, president of LHB for 1983-84. Gatton took on the jobs of treasurer and overseer of the LHB council, also acting as liaison between LHB members and band supervisors. " I got to know a lot more people than I have in my past years in LHB, " Gatton said. " You always meet people and the faces are familiar, but you never get to know them as friends. This year has given me just that opportunity. " Both semesters, Gatton held her position with pride. " I feel the coun- cil and I have accomplished a lot this year, " she said. " Our job is to provide the band members with a well- rounded social life, involving them in as many UT activities as possible. " Gatton and the council achieved this by getting LHB members involv- ed in the student activities commit- tees and the Interfraternity Council. " This has been the greatest year of my life so far, " Gatton said. " I have learned so much about people and myself. By being the representative of LHB, I have encountered people in all facets of The University. " In addition to being president of LHB, Gatton was leader of the mar- ching band ' s flag section during the fall semester. In the Spring, she played tenor saxophone in the In- strumental Ensemble Band. A graduating journalism senior, Gatton said she would like to be a reporter for a couple of years and then move into the limelight. Using her experience as LHB president, she hoped to get involved in the city council. Working with people was Gatton ' s primary interest. Besides her aspira- tions to become a reporter and a city council member, she expressed an in- terest in television and radio ad- ministrative positions. " This year has been so fantastic, " Gatton said. " I am so glad I was in the right place at the right time, with the right motivation.

Traditions were as important a part of the Longhorn Band as instruments. " Our University is setting its stan- dards high so that means our per- sonnel is changing also, " said Kathy Gatton, the first woman president of LHB. " It is the duty of the older peo- ple in the band to teach the tradi- tions to the younger ones. This is how traditions stay alive. Dawn Dodson twirls for her fifth year at UT. A total of 60 trumpets sound when LHB plays. " But I feel it is also very important to set new traditions and incorporate our generation into LHB. " Both older and younger students came together in LHB to create a new and refreshing atmosphere, and orientation time was a time for veteran band members to pass on traditions to new members. A noticeable symbol of tradition in the band was the beanie worn by freshmen for the first 10 weeks of school. Newcomers had to wear the beanies to all band functions, and whenever they were in the street of the Fine Arts Complex and Memorial Stadium. If one of these unfortunate individuals was caught " topless, " he or she experienced the tradition of being hosed down with water. " We were pretty proud since only about three freshmen this year were hosed down. This is great compared to the approximate 16 the year before, " said Wendy Hawkins. After those trying 10 weeks, the freshmen were formally initiated at a banquet. The new band members were relieved and proud to turn in their beanies for cowboy hats. These hats were hard to keep, however, since some rival schools sought them as collectors ' items. LHB was constantly hounded by hat thieves the worst being the Aggies and SMU. " When this happens, everyone yells ' Hat Thief, ' and all band members around drop what they are doing and t he chase is on, " Gatton said. " Let it be known not a hat is stolen without a fearless battle. " Perhaps the best-known tradi- tional fixtures of the band were the cowbells and Big Bertha, the sweetheart of LHB. Bertha, the 8-foot diameter drum acquired from the University of Chicago in 1955, had been housed in an underground storeroom of America ' s first nuclear reactor. Rumor insisted she was radioactive before coming to Texas. Other traditions include the pass- ing of the president ' s ring and the engraved belt buckle listing the drum majors since 1969.

Longhorn Band 409 LONGHORNBAND MARCHING TO THEIR OWN BEAT With a 4,000 square yard green turf canvas and over 300 moving orange elements, it might have taken several skilled artists to create a choreographed masterpiece. Or maybe just one Glenn Richter. Richter, director of the Longhorn Band, led the members of the mar- ching band across the football field again in 1983. But not in the usual marching fashion rather, with dif- ficult steps creating intricate designs. The first move in creating these performances was finding the right music. In order to decide which tunes would be best for the tone of the game, Richter allowed students to br- ing in songs. " Although the director always has final say, " Richter said, " the students ' opinions are most impor- tant. I trust their judgment because they ' re very self-conscious of music. " Traditional marches, classical, con- temporary, pop and country-western were included in the choices. From there, the real work the choreog- raphy began. The initial inspiration for the routines came from the songs themselves. The visual imagery the song created for Richter or his assis- tant Paul Crider had a direct bearing on the steps. Originality, however, was the key to the popularity of the routines. Richter tried to make The University a model for public schools by keeping the moves innovative and creative, avoiding trends. By steering away from popular steps and guiding toward the less common, more difficult moves, the students were subjected to a rigorous curriculum. In order to refine basic motor skills and gain a certain style, two-hour practices were conducted three nights a week. " The practices were really deman- ding but always fun, " said Cathy Liles, freshman band member. " They took a lot of time, but we wouldn ' t have been there if it wasn ' t what we wanted to do. " Finding students who were willing to give up precious study time was not that difficult, in spite of the fact that 80 percent of the band members weren ' t music students. " I believe that ' s part of the chemistry of the band itself, " said Richter. " Each school is well- represented by students who are try- ing to educate people about music being great musical ambassadors for The University while having other things going for them. " Students not spreading this love of music through marching had other avenues, such as the concert groups, the orchestra or the campus band. For those who were able to make all the right moves, there was a rewarding year of hard work and entertainment. The variety of shows from the chaotic Rice University Marching Owl Band imitation to the more conservative Centennial celebration show contributed im- mensely to each football game.

This was a sentiment sometimes felt by students who transferred to The University from junior colleges. In the mass of 48,000 UT students, there was an organization to help these people Longhorn Phi Theta Kappa Alum- ni Association. Most believed that The University offered the same basic curriculum as their junior colleges, but in a different type of atmosphere. " A lot of people are amazed at the size. I was amazed at the amount of in- formation offered by UT, " Sean Boerner, PTK president, said. To recruit members, letters were sent to various chapters of Phi Theta Kappa at junior colleges, inviting those interested in attending The University to PTK Day on Jan. 27, 1984. Information about The Univer- sity, housing and financial aid to the new students was presented. " The encouragement given to the caliber of people we attract benefits the community, " Boerner said. Unlike PTK in junior colleges, the alumni association was a social organization not an honors program. Meetings were held bimonthly, usual- ly in the Texas Tavern. " I was really surprised when I came here how relaxed the association was compared to the rigid chapter at my junior college, " Boerner said. " We are a part of a laid-back university, so we also are laid-back, " he said. Phan DeLaTorre it groups, itad e to make ire was a eotennial HKST ROW: Marilyn Carole M.

Of course, they had no mail to deliver, but making sure that the 350-member Longhorn Band was running smoothly kept them busy. They were also responsible for sew- ing on the Centennial patches design- ed for the band uniforms. Throughout the year, " survival kits, " stocked with culinary delights, found their ways to various band members. TBS members monitored for the high school band tryouts, hoping to recruit prospectives for themselves and LHB. Requirements for this honorary sorority included two semesters in the LHB, plus the qualities of leadership and showman- ship. A good attitude and willingness to work were also TBS prerequisites. At times, however, TBS couldn ' t handle the colossal band by itself, so it teamed up with its brother frater- nity, Kappa Kappa Psi. The groups also planned recreational activities. In April, the two organizations relaxed at their spring picnic. Also on the agenda was the " Steak Fry " at Paleface Park, where members sailed and skiied all afternoon. Each semester, the sorority retreated to nature to discuss the group ' s accomplishments. One of their goals was to begin a tutoring service for band underclassmen. " People don ' t stay in band as long because they find they have to devote more time to studying, so we ' re trying to help, " Vicki Moore, TBS presi- dent, said. Since TBS was a sorority, it tried to pay special attention to the women in LHB. New members were invited to mix at the birthday party for Big Bertha, the largest bass drum in the world. At year ' s end, they " roasted " their graduating members. " TBS adds another dimension to the LHB. It allows somebody to become more involved with the band by serving it, " Moore said.

Some of the most dedicated members were the brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi. Out of over 150 men in the band, this honorary fraternity chose seven to 12 pledges each semester. These pledges helped actives prepare water for rehearsals and serve barbecue to visiting bands. Of the 10-week pledging process, Scott Wiggins said, " The pledge pro- gram strengthens dependency, and trust in each other. " For each rehearsal, members took equipment onto the field and made sure it was taken care of properly. " We try to pick up the enthusiasm when people get burned out, " Wig- gins said. " We give a spark to rehearsals. " To be considered for membership, the men must have lettered in band. In other words, they must have at- tended all performances, made pass- ing grades and paid their social fees. From this group, Kappa Kappa Psi picked members based on leadership, good spirit in band and marching and playing qualities. " They are a bunch of good friends, " Wiggins said.

" We aren ' t fat, beer-drinking, sardine-eating slobs like people envi- sion a bowler to be, " UT Bowling Team captain Michael Smith said. In its sixth year of existence, the 12-member team was loaded with talented, enthusiastic players. The members, all from Texas, had gained experience from junior bowling leagues. The team competed against schools from the Southwest and around the country. The team ' s big- gest rivals were West Texas State and, naturally, Texas A M. A trip to Las Vegas for a tourna- ment in which 63 schools competed resulted in a top 10 finish for Texas. Traveling and equipment expenses were primarily handled by team members themselves. With the ex- ception of a small contribution made by Recreational Sports at the beginn- ing of the year, the only other money available to the team was raised through bowl-a-thons. Bowling was a game of inches. Though not noticeable to the un- trained eye, the game could be lost if the ball traveled down the nine board instead of the 10 board. Physics and technical expertise were a major part of the game. " I enjoy bowling so much, " Sands said. " There is nothing like mastering something that is technical in a recreational way. " Bowling involved intense competi- tion; the score could fluctuate bet- ween the two teams frame by frame. " You can throw a perfect shot and you can still not get a strike, " said Jerry von Sternberg, second-semester captain. " In that way (this sport) is unpredictable. But inevitably, skill always wins out. " It was not always merely talent or luck that won the game. " We have seen many talented teams crash and burn because they did not have chemistry, " von Sternberg said. " Our team has that chemistry that makes us the winners that we are.

Some 35 UT students, who had chosen a hobby requiring dedication and true love, set their boats, or shells, in the water for practice in crew team rowing. Byron Bullock, commander of the UT Crew Club, said, " This is an ex- tremely intense sport. You have to be in top physical shape. " " It is a true team sport. If one per- son is off-balanced or unsyncronized, it throws everyone off and can cost the team a race, " he said. At the end of the 19th century, students at The University decided to establish a crew club so " young ladies did not have to watch the violent sport of football. " They need ed a " cultured and civilized " sport. However, the varsity sport soon dissolved and was re-established in 1982. Since then, the crew club has com- peted in the Heart of Texas race in Austin and the Dust Bowl in Tulsa, Okla. " We spend a lot of time together. We are like a fraternity; we know each other so well. We have to. It takes time and dedication, and sure, some people get burned out, but the winners stay, " Bullock said.

Not exactly an everyday word, but the UT Judo Club showed spirit by yelling expressions such as this during competition to intimidate their opponents. The club began workouts with 20 minutes of warm-up exercises, in- cluding calisthenics and stretching. After warmup came uchikomi, when club members practiced throw- ing drills and worked on holding techniques, followed by randori, or free practice done in pairs. The club placed first and second as a team at the Texas State Collegiate Competition in 1982 and 1983. Debbie Lorin, won third place at the Senior Nationals the most im- portant tournament of the year. Lorin, who started judo at age nine, said she " likes staying in shape and knowing a unique sport. " Alvin Thompson, the group ' s presi- dent, stressed the positive aspects of the sport. " It ' s such a direct form of competition. Just me, with no team to worry about.

In- tercollegiate lacrosse, " said the advertisement. " Come out and watch the fastest and most exciting game on two feet. " Though unfamiliar to Texas spec- tators, lacrosse was " a game of brutal finesse, " goalie Ed Williams said. The UT team played both semesters, stressing fundamentals - endurance, stick handling and ball control. " With good fundamentals, a team can do anything, " team captain Walt Williams said. Fundamentals had to be a daily regimen, because about 75 percent of the team had little or no experience. " The older players help out the new guys, and you learn that way, " team member Mark Kellner said. " Two years ago, I saw them practicing and asked if I could join. It was great! I enjoyed it so much I haven ' t missed a practice since. Well, maybe a cou- ple, " he said. Though 1983-84 marked the team ' s 10th year, the support given to lacrosse by The University was minimal, as it was not recognized as a varsity sport. The school provided the practice and playing fields, but the team had to pay for travel ex- penses and no scholarships were given for lacrosse. Gaining recognition was a major goal of the team, depending primarily on word of mouth. " We need the sup- port of the University media, such as the Daily Texan, " Williams said. Both on and off the field, the UT lacrosse team " played like a team, " Williams said. " We enjoy each other ' s company we party well together. It is an elite sport. It is something dif- ferent and special to identify with. " Phan De la Torre Darric Knight signals " ready " to teammates. FIRST ROW: Mark Brian Kellner, John Evans Daniel, Walter V.

UT Lacrosse Team 417 NIVERSITY PISTOL TEAM MARKSMEN THAT AIM TO PLEASE A faceless expression, He looks straight ahead. His breathing controlled, He raises his hand. His pistol aimed true, His feet planted firm, He fires his pistol; The gunpowder burns. He looks at the target, His competitor ' s apalled. The Texas free pistol team Undefeated that fall. Taking first place in free pistol competition at Texas A M and Sam Houston State Universities and at home during the Fall, 1983, the spr- ing semester brought more of the same good competition for the Texas Pistol Team. During the spring semester, Na- tional Rifle Association Collegiate Sectionals were held at The Universi- ty. The competition included most schools from the Southeast. Winners of the competition were then sent to Colorado Springs to qualify for Na- tionals. Those who made it through Nationals advanced to the Olympic tryouts. Outstanding Texas shooters Keith Heugatter and Brian Hardestry were among those who qualified for the Olympic tryouts. Heugatter had qualified last year at the Pan American Games, while Hardestry was chosen Nov. 19, 1983. During the fall semester, 1983, Eric Vuljung, winner of three individual gold medals at the Pan Am Games, came to The University and spent the day coaching the team. Twice a year, the pistol team held turkey and Round-Up shoots open to the student body. The turkey shoot was held before the Thanksgiving holidays, and the Round-Up shoot was held during Round-Up week, 1984. This was the pistol team ' s fund raiser, and turkeys and prizes were given away. At the three-day Round- Up event, the pistol team kept records of the best shots. This was a time for the pistol team to promote safety and marksmanship to the stu- dent body. Pistol Team members watched Pistol Club practices to spot poten- tial candidates for inclusion in the competitive squad.

This was a to promote p to the ste- am in the Stephen Someone yells " Surfs up!, " and a mass of two-footed surfboards sud- denly race to the water ' s edge. There was always at least one member of the UT Surf Club at the coast every weekend between November and March, the Texas surf season. Free time at Christmas allowed short stops at various Gulf Coast beaches, and Spring Break offered a trip to Ixtapa, a resort north of Acapulco, Mexico. According to Stephen Simmons, club president, the organization was chartered for recreation, competition and instruction. Members taught the how to ' s of the surfing technique by giving lessons on a board set on a ball bearing. " You don ' t even have to get wet, " said Simmons. The real test, however, came in the water. " It ' s like riding a bike you can ' t really show anybody how, " said Simmons. Once out of the water, members dried off and organized T-shirt sales and distributed fliers to boost mem- bership and funds. The club spon- sored several parties at which fellow surfers could get together, sit around, drink beer and watch surf movies. Hanging ten and basking in the sun were primary activities for these otherwise fish out of water. And, as Dave Harvey, vice president in charge of fund raisers believes, the only other worry a surfer has is watching out for sharks.

UT Surf Club 419 T WATER POLO CLUB POLO PL A YERS PREFER THE WET LOOK The aroma of chlorine brought many images to mind. But for 30 UT students, staff and faculty members, the smell of chlorinated water at the Swim Center brought thoughts of long practices and a successful season. The game was divided into four seven-minute quarters that could drag on with dead time for penalties and kick-outs. Competition included local high schools and state universities. " There is no other way to say this water polo is a sport where you try to get away with as much as possible. These methods are even taught. It is a game of excitement, " Robert Albach, water polo president said. Sometimes the game reached such a strategic peak that players would end the game with their bathing suits shredded to pieces, Albach said. Diversity and some experience were tokens for this club team. Jim Dugan was an All-America water polo athlete in high school. Philip Archer was a goalie for the Mexican national team. " It is a challenging sport. I played in high school, in San Antonio. It was more organized, but I have a great time on this team. I love it, " said Bobby Perkins. " Our sport takes the best of strength, coordination, ag- gressiveness. It includes contact, team work. We stay in shape. It ' s ex- citing, good for the whole person.

Participating in several tour- naments with colleges and univer- sities around the state, the UT club brought home six victories from the nine tourneys. The club featured open, but not mandatory practices. " No experience is necessary, " said Martin Muller, president. " The club is mostly engineering, science, geology and business majors. No p.e. majors. " Muller stressed that The Universi- ty had a wrestling club not a varsi- ty team. " It needs some University backing, " he said. " I see no reason why it shouldn ' t be a varsity sport. " The club can be for the serious wrestler or for beginners with an in- terest, " Muller added. " It ' s a great way to stay in shape.

The club began 1984 fresh, with a new sponsor and coach, as well as a new format. Bob Welsh, who came to the team from a high school teaching position in McAllen, Texas, started hard workouts and competitions for the team. The competitions sent the women to San Marcos, Dallas and Odessa to compete against other college gym- nasts. Events included the uneven parallel bars, the balance beam and vault and floor exercises. However, not all members were able to compete. Welsh gave lessons at all levels of difficulty at weekly workouts. Individual members also performed for and taught gymnastics to pupils of the Texas School for the Deaf. " I enjoyed performing gymnastics and keeping in shape, " said member Elizabeth Cunningham.

It was the UT Fly- ing Club flying just about anywhere that a plane could go. The club flew to every out of town football game. And after the Auburn game on Sept. 17, 1983, they decided to spend the rest of the weekend par- tying in New Orleans. Members also took a flight to the mountains with a skiing trip on Dec. 24- Jan. 1. When the sun began to shine dur- ing the spring semester, the Flying Club flew to Matagorda Island April 28. Flying Club members enjoyed the lowest flying costs in Austin and took students for rides, splitting the air- fare of $32 or $42, depending on the plane. " We have the capabilities to teach someone to fly all the way to getting their commercial license, " Neal Na- tions, club president, said. A pilot ' s license required 40 hours of flying time and a passing grade on the FAA student examination. Half of the members had their licences and the rest were getting fly- ing time, Nations said. One of the Flying Club ' s objectives was to provide its members with the lowest flying costs. The club also exposed members to different aircraft. " It ' s great. The Cessna 152 is the best plane in the state, " Nations said. " It ' s been modified so it has more power than it ' s supposed to. It ' s fast. " In addition to all the benefits and fun the Flying Club was able to enjoy, members did not lose sight of their responsibility to the community. They sponsored a " Flight Around Austin " for Muscular Dystrophy on Nov. 22 and April 1. For $15, the club took people for rides over Austin, which included the UT campus, Town Lake, Barton Springs, Mt. Bonnell, the Capitol of Texas Highway suspension bridge over Lake Austin, and Mansfield Dam. When you look up in the sky and see a bird or plane, . . . look again. It might be the UT Flying Club with another bright idea for far fetched excursion.

University Flying Club 423 NIfflRSITY REACHING THE PEAK OF PERFECTION " Did you hear about the Aggie who put snow tires on his car? Next day they melted. " That was only one of the many jokes in Ian Bishop ' s joke file. The UT Ski Club got to hear a lot of jokes on the Thanksgiving ski trip because bad weather closed the roads overnight on the group ' s return from Keystone. But Chad Wilcott didn ' t mind. He thought the Cow Palace Inn was a beautiful place to stay. He said " par- tial salvation came from the hotel bar (the Watering Hole), the town movie house ( ' Never Say Never Again ' ), and Rocky, the wonder bartender, with his Kamikazes. " It was a night to sit around the bar and reminisce about the ski trip. Jason Griak placed second in the trashbag race and Bill Boschma won a set of Salaman 737 bindings, courtesy of Salaman and the Texas Ski Council. In spite of the 15 below zero weather, 1 1 UT skiers raced dow n the slopes against 10 other clubs in the Texas Ski Council. The UT skiers took home seven medals: five silver and two bronze. The Ski Club ' s favorite band, Pure Prairie League, provided the enter- tainment when the jokes weren ' t go- ing too well. The real fun came when 348 UT skiers got on 43 buses and headed for Steamboat Springs, Colo, to 1,000 acres of " champagne powder " snow. " Ski Hawaii style " was the theme of the club ' s annual Christmas break trip. After 50 days of snow and cold, the Colorado weather broke for a week of sunshine, warm temperatures and ex- cellent skiing conditions. The club members skied in shorts, picnicked at the club ' s wine and cheese parties and drank Lite beer at night parties. The club members swept both the men ' s and women ' s ski races from the rest of the clubs participating at the Collegiate Ski Week. The club also hosted a Pajama Par- ty, which promised to become an an- nual event. " Steamboat wasn ' t to forget the UT Ski Club for a long time, " said John Chumney. " It might not have been Hawaii, but it sure could have been. " The serious trip came during spr- ing break, when the serious skiers packed up for Vail, Colo. Sixty members spent six days and five nights enjoying the sun on the slopes and the drinks on the town, Vail style. " After all, the weather wasn ' t too good at the coast, " said Dee Davis.

Or was this someone ' s idea of a sick joke? No, it was no joke. The sign concluded, " be a UT official. " Recreational activities played a large part in UT students ' lives, especially in the area of Intramural Sports, a division of Recreational sports. A few brave souls who risked much to be UT officials made the in- tramurals what they were. Some of the sports that were blessed by their peace-keeping presence were foot- ball, soccer, volleyball, tube water polo, softball and basketball. Before any of these individuals were allowed to expose themselves to the inevitably forthcoming abuse, they were required to attend three clinics for learning and reviewing the mechanics of officiating. Every job has its rewards. Michele Voorhes, one of the few female foot- ball and basketball referees, com- mented on the advantages of of- ficiating: " It is an ideal job for an ac- tive college student, because we were able to schedule our own hours. There are not many jobs where I can meet and interact with all these peo- ple, be around the sports I love the most and make money on top of it all. " Besides officiating intramural games, UT officials served the Austin community by calling youth league games as well. Both the community and the officials benefitted from this service. The officials gained needed experience and worked cheaper than others. Ed Brauer, president of the UT Of- ficial Association, explained his reasons for being a referee: " For peo- ple who stick with it and are serious about their job, refereeing has endless advantages. It will build a person ' s confidence fast. Y ou are in a live situation and you have to stick by a decision you have made, even though some players may dispute your judgment. " I have made a lot of friends, not to mention some enemies, " said Brauer, " but the feeling I get after someone tells me I called a good game makes it worth it in the end.

AMF, of course. With " Bud not just a beer, but a way of life! " serving as their slogan, AMFers enjoyed " just getting drunk with friends and having a good time, " said Steve Pierce. When asked why they only had guys in the club, John Faulkenberry replied, " We ' re ready and willing to change. " No discrimination here. The 15 comprising the group which was formed in Fall 1982 held meetings once monthly for the sole reason of organizing the parties, which were thrown once monthly also. All chipped in for the " refreshments " used as the main entertainment at these get-togethers (i.e., drinking parties). Both parties and m eetings took place in members ' homes or apartments. If one happened to glance at an AMF officer roster, he would have seen a rather lengthy list of positions. Such traditional offices as president, vice president and treasurer existed alongside Secretaries of Controlled Substances and Sexual Affairs. There was even a High Priest of the Porcelain God. The best part was that any or all could hold these spots or create their own titles. A unique quality of the club was the fact that everyone knew each other well, although they had diverse backgrounds and interests. The value of the organization lay in the fact that, according to Don May, " Anything goes. You can do whatever you want. We don ' t try to clone one another.

Wow, Biff, it ' s the B.B.C.; those guys must be from the British Broadcasting Company. " No, wait a minute. It was the Blue Blazer Club, a service as well as social organization that strived to inform and educate students at The Univer- sity about different social, economic and political issues affecting our society and our ways of thinking. The club was formed two years ago, made up primarily friends who desired to be more active in the con- troversies of The University. The intent of the Blue Blazer Club was to be informative, but on rare oc- casions it endorsed candidates for Student Association elections. The club prided itself for having a perfect endorsement record. Trevor Pearlman, president of the club, said, " The advantages of being a Blue Blazer are twofold. One is to interact with other students socially; the other is being able to learn about campus politics. " The club was open to all interested students, and information about join- ing the organization could be found in the Campus News and Briefs in- cluded in the Daily Texan as well as by word of mouth. Pearlman said the club offered " enjoyment of social activities, as well as a challenge in terms of elections. " " There ' s a certain amount of shar- ing, and then there ' s always the pride of the victory, " Pearlman said.

Cisco ' s Kids 429 NEST FULL OF SEAMEN Traditionally on Dad ' s Day day, fraternity houses throughout that area displayed banners welcoming dads to The University. Above one house on Rio Grande, a banner read " Welcome Dads of Sigma Wang, Whoever You Are. " The house was not a frat house, but the Navy ROTC cooperative known as the Crow ' s Nest. Started in 1948, this house served as a social center for many mid- shipmen in the ROTC program. Fur- ther, it provided a cheaper alter- native for NROTC students choosing not to live in dormitories. Housing only 20 students, the Crow ' s Nest provided a place for the entire Naval battalion and the Anchorettes, a women ' s service organization in the ROTC, to hold their parties and other activities. As did fraternities, the Crow ' s Nest took in new pledges, whom they call- ed " pukes. " Pukes went through many initiation ceremonies such as " midnight muster " and " freshman follies " before becoming full " nesters " in February, 1984. Traditions at the Crow ' s Nest also included a special way of celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. The lucky nester, or puke, would be thrown into the swimming pool in the apartment complex across the street in a tactic known as the " pool offense. " Although the majority of Crow ' s Nest activities were social events, the members also performed service functions such as a canned food drive for the Salvation Army before Thanksgiving.

" The group of eight people had no requirements for membership. Members were unofficially required to drink beer namely beer manu- factured by Shiner Bock. Iota Phi Theta was adopted by Shiner, one of the last of the Texas independent breweries, who, on occasion, supplied free t-shirts and kegs to be floated. In addition to heavy partying with Shiner beer, IPT had another aspect that made them distinguished at The University. Members raised money for the Austin chapter of the Special Olympics by sponsoring a " Battle of the Bands, " which was held at the Soap Creek Saloon at 1201 S. Con- gress Ave. Participating bands in- cluded The Front, Joker ' s Waltz, American Express and PBS. IPT presented their donation to the Olympics when they toured the special facilities at Jerry MacClifton Center. Other funds were raised by work- ing on Daily Texan inserts, distributing the Cactus yearbook and University Student Directories and collecting dues from members. Three unpublicized but open- campus parties were held with Shiner playing its heroic role and Iota Phi Theta living up to its part as a drink- ing organization. The club ' s adviser, Peter Williams, UT building manager, was able to keep up with the club ' s drinking habits, so he helped form it and arrange a location for the band competition. Hernandez said being with good friends, reminiscing and partying made the effort worthwhile. Rachel Norrod and Steve Kolander Shiner rep and IPT officers enjoy a cold one. FRONT ROW: Henry Y.

Iota Phi Theta 431 HI DELTA SIGMA BUG-EYED ABOUT ACADEMICS Simkins Hall Dormitory was known for two things -- Phi Delta Sigma and cockroaches, but not necessarily in that order. Phi Delta Sigma was the honorary social organization for Simkins Hall, while the cockroach served as the dorm ' s mascot. Simkins also boasted one more item the highest GPA among men ' s residence halls. " That ' s the reason we wanted to recognize the people who live here. We accomplished something academically, " said Dan Leal, president. Phi Delta Sigma was an honorary organization because of its 3.0 GPA requirement and social because of the close friendships between members. And Phi Delta Sigma did know how to socialize. Simkins ' s flashcard section and the pre-game parties were popular activities in the fall. In its two-year existence, Phi Delta Sigma developed a service program. The project, cleaning up Waller Creek, was no easy task. " It was a crazy idea. It was dirty work, but we had a blast, and that ' s what counted, " Leal said. On Halloween, the group organized a haunted house designed to give mentally handicapped citizens an op- portunity to attend. Simkins donned a macabre look, with the first floor transformed into a horror chamber. " Not seeing much success in an honorary and social organization that could maintain a reputation of academics, Phi Delta Sigma decided to create a new organization Phi Delta Simkins, " Leal said. Members hoped that by basing its requirements on GPA, the new group would become a distinguished association of Simkins achievers. While Phi Delta Simkins would follow the guidelines of Phi Beta Kin- solving residents, Phi Delta Sigma would remain an honorary social organization.

Un-nozingly, the Royal Order of the N.O.Z.E. hit that quip, uh, . . . right on the noze.

Ima Noze, Little Snotz president, said, " We ' ve always been searching for a group of guys with the right breeding. I just noze we made the right choice. " Selection of the girls was a picky operation. " We nozed that we needed a ser- vice project to become a complete fraternity, so to beautify the West Campus area, we held the first an- nual Dragworn Wash, " Hoo Noze, publicity chairman said. " Even though we only cleaned one drag noze, we picked him from among the most nozitable on the Drag, " he said.

Royal Order of the N.O.Z.E. 433 IGMAP1NOT NOTHING CAN BE EVERYTHING Have you ever done something just because it seemed like the best thing to do at the time? Sigma Phi Nothing was formed in the Fall of 1982 for ex- actly that reason, said Lee Hill, president. Although there were no restrictions for becoming a member, all were good friends, most lived in Jester Center and some were handicapped residents of the first floor. " I get friendship out of the club as well as a better understanding of disabled people, " said Hill. " They make up for their disabilities through their personalities, becoming more outgoing and open. We can say almost anything to each other with no fear of offending one another, " he said. The group of 30 tried its best to eat three meals a day together at a " reserved table " in the cafeteria. " Those who try to sit at our table are made to feel unwelcome, " said Hill. Lunchtime activity included girl- watching and appropriate ensuing conversation. Sigma Phi Nothing provided a way for all involved to party in Jester. Whenever any member wanted a par- ty, he simply left a bowl on vice- president Isaac Avalos ' s desk as a col- lection plate to raise money for the refreshments kegs. Most of the members planned to move off-campus in the Fall of 1984, threatening the continuation of Sigma Phi Nothing. Hill, however, was optimistic. " We ' ve gotten some freshmen in this year and hopefully they ' ll carry on the club. As old members leave , new members will be there to replace them.

" When my dog found out he looked like me, he shot himself. " Perhaps Rodney ' s dilemma would have ended had he been a member of an established drinking club. Texas Cowgirls solved this problem for many UT women. Besides parties and meetings, the group held two major activities the fall casual and the spring formal. Cowgirl uniforms were required for the casual at the pier on Lake Austin. However, the attire for the spring for- mal was restricted to formal gowns, boots and bandanas. To be selected as a Texas Cowgirl, candidates were first nominated by a Cowgirl and then voted upon by the members. Two booms, or rejection votes, meant the end for a candidate. " We feel it ' s an honor to be a Texas Cowgirl. I ' m sure the tradition will continue, " co-president Susan Stillwell said.

Highlighting the event was the World Championship Armadillo Mud- wrestling Competition. 1984 marked the end of the four- year reigning triumvirate of Tim Thomas, Todd Moore, and Tad Hampton Jr., the founders of the Texas Tri T ' s. The three built the group and kept it going with bi- monthly visits to Jaime ' s Spanish Village for a little rest and relax- ation.

Now it seems like it ' s always been here, " Terry Mackey, Texas Lone Starrs president said. Formed in 1983-84, the Lone Starrs planned " to acknowledge outstanding faculty members as well as promote university participation in UT pep rallies, " Mackey said. The group ' s 50 charter members were chosen on individual attributes, contributions to the University GPA and UT spirit. A panel of the group ' s officers selected members. In future years, each member would invite one person to join the club. In this way, the application process would be phased out. The Lone Starrs held meetings once a month during the spring semester, at which time the faculty member of the month was chosen. For the fall semester, the group planned weekly meetings to prepare for the football pep rallies. Lone Star beer, the group ' s namesake, often supplied kegs at the meetings. " The Lone Starrs gives members the chance to meet others and to work together towards a common goal getting as many people as possible into the UT spirit, " Mackey said.

Among the horde of beachgoers was a small group from the UT Baptist Student Union, which organized volleyball games, provided first aid and showed films. The BSU, located at 22nd and San Antonio streets, was led by a full- time professional staff as well as stu- dent councils. The Executive Council was the outreach arm of the group, consisting of 14 members, each representing a different ministry of the BSU. BSU members participated in cam- pus intramurals and held the sixth annual Burnt Orange Bowl. The B.O. Bowl, which matched the UT BSU ' s men ' s football team against the Baylor BSU, was played prior to the UT-Baylor football game. For the second consecutive year, the UT BSU won the bowl title. " It ' s good that Christians from different schools can get together and have some fun. That ' s what the B.O. Bowl is all about, " said Steve Brazzel, in- tramurals chairman. Besides offering luncheons on Thursdays and a worship program on Tuesday nights, the BSU offered fellowships. Events from a Christmas hayride to a Valentine ' s " Dating Game " party filled the BSU ' s social calendar. Kathy Thornton BSU students entertain others with a skit.

Baptist Student Union 439 NMB ' MILLEL FOUNDATION PROMOTING JEWISH A WARENESS The B ' nai B ' rith Hillel Foundation knew how to begin a good semester by throwing an open-house keg party at the first of each one. New Jewish students not only met the officers and learned about Hillel ' s programs, but they also enjoyed a good time in an informal atmosphere. As a learning center for Jewish students, the Hillel Foundation, directed by Rabbi Gary Kozbert, reached a community of 2,500. Every Friday night, the center conducted religious services, many times led by students. After the services, students enjoyed social events such as wine and cheese parties or listened to special guest speakers. " We participated in several pro- grams sponsored by a new committee The Committee for Jewish- Christian Dialogue, " said Pam Gard- ner, president of B ' nai B ' rith Hillel Foundation, " including one on Jewish-Christian intermarriage. " Several groups within Hillel, such as Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry and Campus Friends of Israel, were united for political purposes. These groups were frequently visible on the West Mall. " Hillel is a cultural and educa- tional experience as well as a social, " Gardner said. " Hillel brings people together who like to discuss the same issues. It provides a diff erent point of view and variety in students ' lives. " Kay Ghahremani Diana Goldman picks up Israel information.

" Go ye therefore, and teach all na- tions, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. " This quote from Matthew 28:18 epitomized the goals of Campus Crusade for Christ, a non- denominational Christian organiza- tion for UT students, whose members strove to practice what they preached. Activities centered around the weekly Thursday night meetings. Singing test i .onies and Bible Study were the focus of each gathering. " It ' s a general meeting to encour- age students at The University to know Christ in a personal way, " said Marty Van Houten, head of the Women ' s Ministry. A notable fall event focused on " K.C. ' 83, " the national convention of Campus Crusade held in Kansas City, Mo., during Christmas break. The convention featured well- known speakers Billy Graham and Josh McDowall. Leadership training conference " ind Bible study seminars were also held. In the Spring, " Operation Sun- shine, " a four week series of meetings and activities attracted Campus Crusaders from all over the Southwest to South Padre Island. The ministry also sponsored framework for " affinity groups, " which involved athletes, dormitories and Greek organizations, as vell as " disciple groups, " which were open to any interested student. With all their activities, most members seemed to value their per- sonal relationships with God and others as the center of their lives. Campus Crusade " helps me to grow closer with my personal rela- tionship with Jesus Christ, " co- director Michael Tipps said. " It ' s taught me to share the most impor- tant thing in my life with others. " Susan Neidert ,.

Campus Crusade for Christ 441 ATHOLIC STUDENTS ' ASSOCIATION FAITH, FELLOWSHIP AND FUN " Good grief, Charlie Brown! " was the unifying slogan when the Catholic Students ' Association put on the play " It ' s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown " for the children of the Battered Women ' s Center in Oc- tober, 1983. In addition to staging the Hallo- ween play, the organization, formed in May, 1983, began its involvement at The University with a back-to- school dance, a retreat to Cedar Break and participation in in- tramural sports. The association was a broad based organization, with over 100 members. Through social, spiritual and service activities the group displayed a dedication to the community. Members met every two weeks for prayer and fellowship, t ook time off for birthday celebrations, held an overnight party in the Catholic Stu- dent Center known as a lock-in, and put on a talent show. The spring retreat in Castroville, Texas, was run on the theme, " The Body of Christ. " Manuel Oscos, vice president of the association, said that the retreat " focused on the talents and responsibilities we have as in- dividuals, which we can use to build community. " " We would like to be recognized and expand more, " Jerry Wesevich, president of the association, said. Wesevich also said that the club " takes a lot of energy and work, " but he felt the interaction and activities were worth it. Whether they sang together and celebrated mass at the Resthaven Nursing Home, attended the Texas Catholic Student Conference in March or observed Sederfeast at Easter, the students advanced their spiritual growth in church activities, by helping others and by just having a good time. Oscos said the club fostered " a greater awareness and realization of the presence of God in every member, which is revealed in different ways.

The play, which emphasized that one cannot escape Christ by going into the city, also concentrated on the " apathy of modern Christians, " said Jim Coupal, vice president of the group. The DSF, seeing that only 2 per- cent of the UT student population at- tended church, aimed at enhancing the religious atmosphere at The University. Meetings, led by Faye Lee, director of student ministry for UCC, were held every Sunday night. Students were encouraged to discuss their beliefs, Coupal said. " We don ' t have any set creed or doc- trine, " he said. " You can take it on your own from your initial belief in Christ. " A river trip on Sept. 25, a Hallo- ween costume party on Oct. 30 and a retreat to Aransas Pass March 12-14 all helped to promote friendship within the DSF as well as relieve tension. Cheering up the older children of battered women was also a main con- cern of the Disciples Student Fellowship. They filled stockings with gifts and were greeted with smiles as they gave them to the youngsters at a Christmas party at the Battered Women ' s Center. Through service and faith, the DSF strove to " provide a social and spiritual movement for friends as well as a place to build memories, " Coupal said. Traci Graves railways.

Disciple Student Fellowship 443 WHERE TWO WORLDS MEET The unique " Chicago Folk Mass, " led by Pastor Curtis Johnson " PJ " to students was celebrated every other two weeks by members of the Lutheran Student Ministries. The mass celebrated with song, guitar and flute was held at the Lutheran Center. Along with the music, the group also participated in discussion of the Bible. Although most of the members of the group were Lutherans, students of all denominations interested in fun and fellowship were invited to join. Church services were held every Sun- day at 9:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. in the chapel at 2100 San Antonio. Every Sunday night, the group met at the Lutheran Center for a home- cooked meal. After dinner, students listened to various members involved in business, service and other aspects of the Austin community who were invited to speak. Issue orientation talks were given on subjects such as violence in Guatemala and the nuclear development question. At the beginning of the year, members of the organization passed out apples on the West Mall to re- establish an old tradition. In the 1960s, members of the Lutheran Movement gave apples to protestors of the Vietnam War for their lunch. The apple was chosen because of its biblical symbolism. Not only was the group active on campus, but they also got involved with the Austin community. During their blood drive which was held at the Lutheran Center, the group col- lected over 25 pints of blood. Members held a spring clothing drive for indigents, worked with the elderly in Round Rock and developed valuable friendships as they visited the shut-ins of the Trinity Lutheran Home helping them with writing let- ters and surprising them with valen- tines on Valentine ' s Day. President Thomas Trahan said the Lutheran Student Ministries was established to " allow students to find fellowship in The University and its environment. " The group was one in which students could debate and ask ques- tions on political and religious issues as well as discuss personal matters. Members found new friends, serv- ed The University as well as the Austin community and had lots of fun doing so. Laura Stramler FIRST ROW: Judith I. Haeussler, Mist y Eileen J.

The lectures covered three topics: " Feeling Good in a Bad Relation- ship, " " Why Your Problems Won ' t Go Away " and " Living Together Alone A Personal Relationship. " Members also presented other material by Saunders through a series of lectures entitled " Feeling Good About Yourself. " Open to any UT student, the Stu- dent Christian Fellowship provided spiritual and social activities for its members. Supported by the Univer- sity Avenue Church of Christ, the SCF centered its activities around the Biblical Study Center located at 1909 University Ave. Throughout the day, members us- ed the center for studying, playing Ping-Pong or talking with the cam- pus minister, Rex Kyker. Led by a seven member steering committee, the SCF arranged 3 retreats during the year. Held at various state parks in Texas, the weekend retreats offered students keynote speakers, devotionals, discussions, a bonfire and an outdoor Sunday service. The fall retreat was held at Camp Hensel on Lake Travis, and the H.E.B. Camp in Leakie, Texas, was the site of the spring session. " SCF is a group where you can go, feel comfortable and know you have common interests and beliefs. You ' re a part, " president Charlotte Futril said. " You ' re not just one of the crowd. " On Oct. 30, members held a Hallo- ween carnival at the church to pro- vide an alternative to trick-or- treating for local children. The spring semester proved even busier, with the SCF hosting the Texas Bible Chair Seminar for members of different Bible chairs of 17 colleges throughout Texas. Also in the Spring, the SCF started a new program which they named HOPE Horns Offering People En- couragement. HOPE members spent a weekend with high school students in New Braunfels to talk about the SCF and The University. On April 27, the SCF held its an- nual Spring Banquet to honor all graduating seniors and " roast " several outstanding members by giv- ing gag awards, called the Golden Biscuits.

Student Christian Fellowship 445 TUDEN1 MINISTRY OF THE UBC SUSTAINING THE FAMILY CIRCLE " University Baptist Church is a fellowship committed to help you grow in spirit as you expand in mind, " John Shouse, pastor of University Baptist Church, wrote in a pamphlet mailed to UT students designed to inform all students of the upcoming activities of the Student Ministry of UBC. " Our emphasis is geared to a fami- ly atmosphere. Since there are just students, we try to integrate the stu- dent who has come to The University of Texas from outside of Austin with our regular church families, " Bruce Austin, associate pastor, said. " We encourage our families to take students home, feed them and pro- vide a family atmosphere for them while they ' re living in Austin, " he said. The program lasted for one month, during which students were invited to share spiritually with dif- ferent church families on each Sunday. " We provide a combination of be- ing a family as well as the spiritual feeding through Bible study and fellowship activities, " Austin said. " Every Thursday we have a chapel service at 10 p.m. just for students. The pastor then meets with them for prayer and Bible study, " he said. Some 60 students met every Sun- day for worship services and fellowship. Group activities included a September retreat at Highland Lakes Baptist Encampment for a spiritual emphasis weekend. Feb. 12, 1984, UBC and Student Ministry participated in a race rela- tions service at Ebenezer Baptist Church in which members " ex- perienced worshipping with another race, " Austin said. In Theater Ministry, students were able to act in works such as " Construction " in the fall and " Con- sider These Hands " in the Spring. " We try to tie the students to Christian teachers who happen to be members of the University Baptist Church, " Austin said. University Baptist Church had been serving the spiritual needs of UT students for 75 years. In continu- ing this tradition, Shouse wrote in his student pamphlet, " It is our prayer that you will meet in Christ a center to stay your life, and that you will find in our fellowship a genuine ex- pression of the family of God.

In the 1960s, the student fellowship had as many as 300 members and operated with a full- time director of campus ministry. So Morgan, a student intern from the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, directed all of his talents towards the reorganization. One ma- jor innovation was the Tuesday night dinner and Bible study. Advertise- ments in The Daily Texan described the offer as " the best free food since manna fell from heaven. And you don ' t have to eat it off the ground. " The Bible studies were noted by the members for being open and thought oriented. " We ' ve really been happy with the attendance, " Morgan said. " We ' ve had up to 40 people join in our study because it really is very interesting, " he said. Recreational activities included a weekend fall retreat to Lake Travis. " It was just a time for R R. We mostly swam and stayed up talking, " Morgan said. Over Spring Break, thirteen members traveled to Empalme, Mex- ico, where they delivered food and medical supplies to the residents through the program " Los Puentes de Cristo. " The fellowship was made up most- ly of students, although anybody associated with The University was welcome. " What makes us different from other organizations, " Mclntosh said, " is that we serve the community - like visiting nursing homes and hospitals. Austin is a hard town to get used to, and it ' s helpful to have a group to rely on. " " The fellowship is something that ' s touched a lot of people ' s lives, " Morgan said. " I think that this is the beginning of something that ' s going to be a challenge. " Joel Alegria FIRST ROW: Steven Richard Prichett, Lee Hunter Mclntosh, Ruben J Roman, Barbara E. Watson.

But for those who were in- timate with The University, such as the 1984 Goodfellows and Outstan- ding Students, there was much more to be said. Julie Unruh, Plan II senior, said, " The real quality to The University isn ' t that it is its dedication to fin- ding academically gifted students and outstanding instructors. " It ' s neat that UT has the finances to do things that other universities can ' t do, but to me, academics is the main part of it. " Steve Rudner, government senior, added: " Sure, I think The Univer- sity ' s commitment to endowed pro- As viewed by the 1984 Cactus Goodfellows and Outstanding Students fessorships and fellowships is ad- mirable, but the students are here because The University offers so much so many activities. College is more than a classroom. " " The facilities available here are like no where else I ' ve seen, " said Jewel Massie, accounting senior. " The University, " said Michelle Robberson, journalism senior, " is kind of a melting pot there are students here from all over. By meeting people from around the world . . . you learn about many dif- ferent places. " " I thought I was a well-rounded person when I graduated from high school, " said Angela Conley, organizational communications senior. " It really blew me away to have conversations with people with Angela Conley has lunch in front of the Tower.

" Now I go home and talk about things with my friends who didn ' t go to college world issues aren ' t that important to them. There ' s a fan- tastic opportunity for growth here, but the competition is fierce, " Conley said. " I remember when I first started out, " Massie said, " I thought the work was really hard I was going to " There ' s a fantastic opportunity for growth here, but the competition is fierce. " Angela Conley drop out. Now, here I am about to graduate . . . You just have to stick with it. " The University is diverse, that ' s for sure, " Conley said. " Things have happened to me that I never would have expected in college. I recom- mend UT to anyone. " " The students really seem to be in great demand, " said Massie. " So many companies come after the students. " " I think The University has done a good job of realizing weak areas, and acting to strengthen them, " Rudner said. " I think there needs to be less emphasis placed upon The Univer- sity ' s endowments and more on its achievements. " " Perhaps some of the money mat- ters get in the way of educating the students, " said Amy Mohwinkel, music performance senior. " A university of the world class? " asked Mohwinkel. " I think if we ' re not already, we certainly have the capacity to be of the world class. " Miles Fain and Lynn Fox share a quirk moment before finals in front of the Littlefield Home.

Rushees trekked to and from sorority houses and fraternity parties in hopes of getting a bid the final invitation to join an organization. But what justified the time, energy and money Greeks put into their system? " There ' s a certain bond -- I guess that ' s why we call each other brothers - - that doesn ' t just end when college ends, " said Mike DeAyala, Sigma Phi Epsilon member. Alpha Phi president Susan Daniel said, " You ' re bound to meet people and make friends. It ' s something to be proud of. " Described by rush captains as an overall learning experience, membership in a sorority or fraternity was helpful in get- ting to know The University. " You get more involved with The University through the Greek system, " said Cuatro McCartt, Sigma Chi vice president. Byron LeFlore, Beta Theta Pi member, said the Greek system was especially helpful to freshmen. j " Your adjustment to The University just happens before you know it, " he said.

Greek -499 u n_W_br With the growth of The University of Texas at Austin and the UT Greek system, membership in the Panhellenic Council skyrocketed in 1983 and ' 84. From the 10 members of the first University sorority, Pi Beta Phi, the number of undergraduate sorority women ' grew to 2,700. As a governing body for sororities, the Panhellenic Council regulated the rushing of potential members, the pledging and initiation of members, academic requirements and social activities. In February, new and old members attended the Panhellenic Retreat, a one day workshop on the structure of Panhellenic Council and the National Panhellenic Conference. Officers ' workshop was held in March and in- cluded a Sunday dinner with a guest speaker. The end of April was highlighted by the annual awards meeting. Awards for highest grade point average, efficiency in the keep- ing of Panhellenic records and most outstanding member were presented to deserving women. In addition, a $500 scholarship was awarded to a female student in the Continuing Education Program, and several $500 scholarships were presented to undergraduate women on the basis of need.

They managed to eat plenty of German sausage and knackwurst before loading on the bus for the trip home. Fully recovered the next day, they sang their hearts out with the Sigma Nu ' s at Sing Song. With the help of the Kappa Alpha ' s, A Chi O ' s collected thousands of dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation during the an- nual Shrine- Arama. The event got its name from the ancient days when A Chi O ' s shined shoes for money. Melissa Marlowe, an enthusiastic participant, said, " We were quite suc- cessful and look forward to another great Shine-Arama with the KA ' s and hope to raise mega-dollars for cystic fibrosis next year.

Projects! Even though Alpha Kappa Alpha did par- ticipate in social events in 1983-84, its main emphasis was on community service. Jena Bell, AKA president, said, " Our organization tries to pro- mote the community in everything we do. Our goal is to be a service to all mankind. " The year was very special to AKA members, because Jan. 28, 1984, marked the 25th anniversary of the UT chapter. The AKA members headed for the Cap Day Care Center on Oct. 28, 1983, where they sponsored a car- nival and Halloween party for the children. Candy and popcorn balls were prizes for games like " pin the broom on the witch. " For the Easter holidays, the members were again working with children, but this time at the Junior Helping Hands Center, where they organized an Easter egg hunt. Bell said, " The looks on the children ' s faces are worth all the work. " One of the main projects AKA par- ticipated in throughout the year was its adopt-a-grandparent program with the East Fair Nursing Home. Each member of the sorority chose a resident of the nursing home and visited him as often as possible.

Each member gave her adopted grandparent an individual gift. Bell said, " You wouldn ' t believe what a good feeling it gives you to see how much the residents respond to a visit from someone who cares. " On April 27, 1984, Alpha Kappa Alpha had a very special spring for- mal with Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity to celebrate their silver anniversary. During the formal, a slide presenta- tion was shown. Slides included were from the 25 years AKA has had a UT chapter. Their ball also served as a reunion for alumnae, such as Wilhelmina Delco, Texas State Representative.

This was possible during rush week at the Alpha Phi house. They began the 1983-84 academic year with a suc- cessful rush program, garnering 55 pledges. The members elected their big brothers, known as " Ivy Leaguers, " in the fall. The group included many campus leaders: Mitch Kreindler, president of the Students ' Associa- tion, Lance Watson, UT Yell Leader, and other outstanding young men from other organizations. Members of Alpha Phi were proud of their philanthropy program. They sponsored a service event to support Cardiac Aid at St. David ' s Hospital in the fall called " Cardiac Arrest. " Members kidnapped promi- nent elected officials, business people and fraternity and sorority presidents and put them in the " Alpha Phi Jail. " The money paid for their bail was donated to the hospital. In the spring, they sold lollipops to raise money to benefit the American Heart Association. Alpha Phi ' s promoted good study habits for their pledges with 20 re- quired study hours a week. They also helped girls having problems with classes by providing them with " study buddies. " The study buddy was someone with previous knowledge of the class and could pro- vide assistance in preparation for tests, assignments and projects. The Alpha Phi social calendar in- cluded a fall casual with a Sports Il- lustrated theme. During the Univer- sity ' s Centennial Showcase Celebra- tion, they sponsored a brunch and cocktail party for their alumnae. Alpha Phi grew into an organiza- tion providing girls with fun, friend- ship and lifelong memories just ask any one of those 55 new pledges. Angle Wesch )lkoti,JeiuL Marie Skepteil !

Alpha Xi Delta members held a Mystery Date Vacation Giveaway casual. Each girl ' s date was secretly chosen by another member of the sorority.

At the casual on Nov. 4, vaca- tioners enjoyed listening to music by the Condominiums. During the dance, at Lost Creek Country Club, Alpha Xi Deltas raffled off Acapulco vacation tickets. The vacation package included airfare on Mex- icana Airlines, accommodations at the La Palapa Hotel, meals and $100 spending money for each the winners, Glenda Fuentez and Scarlet Landry.
