Students came from all over Texas, the United States and the world. Figures showed that 82 percent were from Texas, 1 1 percent from out-of-state and seven percent from other countries. All of them came to get an education at the University, but they left with something more. UT had a way of leaving its unique mark on students. Once a Longhorn, always a Longhorn. After all, the Ex-Students ' Association was one of the largest and most active alumni groups in the country. With over 48,000 members, Ex-Students ' clubs could be found in every state and overseas. The New York City and Alaska clubs were some of the most active. Former students were also great sources of monetary support. The University was second only to Harvard in the amount of endowment funds. Why did so many students continue to be affiliated with the University long after graduation? Perhaps they realized what being a UT student really meant and they did not want to forget it. It meant relaxing on the South Mall in the shadow of the Tower, football games at Memorial Stadium, Round-Up, and departmental exams. It meant Adds and Drops at the Erwin Center, traffic jams on Sixth Street, and studying on the third floor of the Union. Everyone had their own unique experiences while at the University, and that was what truly made them part of the UT family. For them, college was not just a place to get a degree. Rather, it was a place to learn and grow, knowing that they were doing it at the best possible place of all: The University of Texas at Austin. by Amanda Youngblood 2 Uniquely Texas [ohn Foxworth Memorial Stadium .JET 5 Shuttle bui boding down Red River 4 Uniquely Texas Daniel By ram First-class education Michael Stravato tudents at the University of Texas knew that they were attending a great school a university of the first class. Since its opening in 1883, the University established itself as one of the eminent institutions of higher learning in the United States. It was only one of three southwestern members of the Association of American Universities and boasted of a number of excellent academic programs. The accounting department was rated in the top five in the nation for quality of faculty and programs. The graduate program in law ranked fifth in the nation among public schools, while graduate programs in education and business were in the top 10. In addition, the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs was rated sixth nationally for quality among both private and public institutions and third among state- supported schools. Naturally, these qualifications enabled the University to attract many top scholars. Data showed that nearly 88 percent of entering freshmen were in the top quarter of their high school class, while 42 percent ranked in the top 10 percent. Over 900 National Merit Scholars attended the University during the 1987 school year. Much of this reputation was due to the outstanding faculty, which included four Nobel Prize winners, 153 endowed chairs and over 400 endowed professorships. The University also excelled in intercollegiate athletics, having won more Southwest Conference championships in all sports than any other school in the Conference. Without a doubt, the University had a special quality that made it stand out from all the rest a quality that was uniquely Texas. by Amanda Youngblood Uniquely Texas 5 Cultural enhancement University dorm system Michael Stravato tudents did more than just study at the University. The campus provided many extra- curricular and cultural opportunities. It was just a matter of deciding how to spend one ' s time. No one could have done all there was to do during their stay at the University. In fact, many students were not even aware of the possibilities. There were over 800 registered student organizations in which to participate, ranging from anti-apartheid groups to David Letterman fanatics. Student publications and the new student radio station provided ways to gain experience in those fields. As far as entertainment was concerned, the University had it all. The Arts Complex had numerous offerings throughout the year, such as the Austin Symphony, Austin Ballet, Broadway shows and concerts. Student productions, such as plays and sym- phony concerts, were almost always available at fairly reasonable ticket prices. The Texas Union was the perfect place for fun and cheap recreation. Students could always be found in the movie theater, bowling alley, billiards room and video games room. At night, the Tavern hosted local musicians and was a popular spot for drinking and dancing. For the cultural appetite, several art museums were located on campus. At the Texas Memorial Museum, one could see huge dinosaur footprints, discovered not far from Austin. At the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, one could see the world ' s first photograph or one of the few copies of the Gutenberg Bible. The Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery, located in the Art Building, featured changing exhibits of national importance. Obviously, there was no shortage of opportunities for students to get involved at the University of Texas at Austin. by Amanda Youngblood 6 Uniquely Texas 8 Uniquely Texas !

Where else could one find such a strange mix of scholars, legislators, business people and just plain Texans? It was a city constantly on the move, growing to meet the demands made by life in the 1980s. Since I960, Austin ' s population doubled and continued to grow in 1988. The technological field was partially responsible for this growth, especially with the addition of Sematech to the number of high tech industries based in Austin. In addition to the University of Texas, the city was also home to St. Edward ' s University, Huston-Tillotson College, Concordia Lutheran College, the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest and Austin Community College. Culturally, the city had much to offer students. Attractions included the State Capitol, the Laguna Gloria Art Museum, the Austin Symphony and the Zachary Scott Theater. The UT campus was also the site of several museums and concert facilities. Austin ' s natural resources made it one of the most attractive, livable cities in the state. The picturesque Hill Country and nearby Town Lake, Mt. Bonnell and Lake Travis were popular getaway spots. On sunny days, students could be found sun- bathing at Barton Springs or at any of the city ' s numerous parks. The ever-popular Austin music scene became well-known when such artists as Timbuk 3 and Omar and the Howlers broke onto the national scene. The " Third Coast ' attracted Hollywood as well. Several movies such as D.O.A. and Heartbreak Hotel were filmed here. Clearly, Austin was an exciting place to be. Many students found that four years here was not enough and decided to stay. Others moved on, but memories of their time here would last a lifetime. by Amanda Youngblood Uniquely Texas 9 HILD ' S PLAY Ashley C.usU-T is intrigued by the snap bubbles she celebration has been held every simr 1 ' , ' Co treated while en|i yiri an .iltenioon of tun and troli . ai n-lebraie the sad donke s birthday. : : .

HROW ARTY Not just another spring theme party . . . wenty-five years ago on May 8, two UT students, Lloyd T Bird well and his girlfriend Jean Graver, needed an excuse to ' involve his fraternity and her sorority in a spring party. The theme of this small get-together came to be known as Eeyore ' s Birthday Party. The following year, 1964, the two students asked a UT professor, James Ayres, to help them sponsor their annual party which was traditionally held at Eastwoods park. In its 10th year, 10,000 people attended the " little get-together. " L Eeyore ' s Birthday Party has since moved to Pease Park due to the large quantity of people. In 1977 Ayers retired from his position as sponsor. " The event had grown too large for me to handle and the behavior of participants got out of hand, " he said. The YMCA took over sponsorship soon after Ayers ' resignation. Eeyore ' s celebration then became the YMCA ' s main fundraiser and even brought the organization out of the red. " Eeyore ' s is " The Moneymaker ' for us. We are one of the few YMCAs in the country that uses the sale of alcohol for money making purposes, " Les Karnes, fundraising coordinator, said. When people first heard of Eeyore ' s Birthday Party, many were confused by the whole idea of a party for a fictional donkey. " When I first heard about Eeyore ' s, I wondered, ' What is the deal with Eeyore ' s Birthday? ' Then I realized its just an excuse to party, " Tonia Carlisle, history senior, said. For others, Eeyore ' s party reputation spread far and wide. " I ' ve never been myself but I hear it ' s fun as hell! " Tim Cunningham, engineering sophomore, said. Even Texas alumni continued the tradition and sponsored their own Eeyore ' s Birthday Parties in Houston, Dallas and even Los Angeles. But while the gigantic celebration went on at Pease Park, another simpler version also occurred. Ayres continued the tradition of a spring fling every year on the last Saturday in April. His event took place at Winedale, a University historical and social studies center. " My Eeyore ' s Birthday Party is geared mainly towards the children ' s activities. I just wanted to continue the original idea of Eeyore ' s to have good, clean fun, " Ayers said. by Sonia White FEATURES EDITED BY SONIA WHITE Features 1 1 AX12 AAH AJ A has Us special KA SAT They have a tale to tell. The story began in May 1965 and has continued through the turn- ing point which occurred Jan. 27, 1988. The characters involved were the sororities of the University and the turning point was their reg- istration with the University. With their registration, the sororities were officially recognized by UT as an organization and gained access to the benefits which all other University organizations enjoyed. " They had the same rights, the same responsibilities, " Sharon Justice, Dean of Students, said. To register, a group signed an anti-hazing pledge, a nondiscrimination pledge, and a membership and solicitation affidavit. " Just like everybody else does, the sororities sign that piece of paper, " Evelyne Bennett, Director of the University Panhellenic Council, said. Like other registered organizations, sororities could participate in leadership workshops, set up West Mall tables, purchase yearbook pages and sponsor on-campus activities. According to Justice, the president of Pan- hellenic could also sit on the President ' s Board (composed of presidents from a number of organizations). " It provided a link for the Pan- hellenic representative to discover what ' s hap- pening on campus and for the Universtity to discover what ' s happening in the sororities, " Justice said. There were benefits specific to the sororities as well. Open Rush (open invitation to anyone interested in attending ) became a reality, as opposed to a closed, formal Rush (invitation- only). " For Panhellenic it was a benefit because we got a reduced rate on the Performing Arts Center, which is where we conduct Rush, " Panhellenic Council President Christine Yura, accounting junior, said. " I think that it (registration) creates an at- mosphere where all the students are working together. It helps the University and makes us a more complete network, and it changes the perception that they weren ' t registered because of some racial issues, " Glenn Maloney, Assistant Dean of Students, said. According to Sigma Delta Tau president Randi Shade, Plan II senior, students said a lack of variety in ethnicity of members, in addition to drinking and hazing, were all negative aspects associated with sororities. However, Shade also said that more of the student population would see the positive qualities as the sororities became more involved on campus. " I ' d say that registration probably is good because it helps project a more positive image, ' Alpha Phi member Chrissi Noyd, accounting! senior, said. One may wonder why the sororities had n registered before. " That ' s a long story, " Benn said in recounting sorority history. According to Bennett, between May 196 and March 1968, several decisions were made by the University and by the Panhellenic Coun- cil which led to the sororities ' independence. In 1965, the University had limited jurist diction over off-campus housing; the sororiro houses were no longer accepted as University property. Therefore, the Sorority Alumnae Ad- visory Council was formed so that " the eighteen sorority houses would be properly supervised under a common set of rules, " Bennett said. The sororities grew to function independently of the University. In 1966 the Panhellenic EGE Council gained jurisdiction over its social affairs and in 1967 the Panhellenic Coucnil and the ' Interfraternity Council moved off campus. Lat that year the Panhellenic Council became t sponsible for all rules and regulations of t houses and members. The sororities chose not to register in 1967 when it became a requirement for student or- ganizations in order to use campus facilities. Their reasons included not wanting to be undei the jurisdiction of the Committee of Studem Organizations or the Students ' Association control and regulation. " So, on March 5, 1968, all 18 Nationa Panhellenic Council sororities voted not to reg- ister with UT-Austin as student organizations, ' Bennett said. In response to the registration which finall; occurred, Jan. 27, 1988, most sorority member had positive feelings. " I think it ' s great. I wa absolutely ecstatic, " Shade said. Time will tell how the registration of so rorities will affect changes in campus involve ment and influence and in the minds of th University population. " Certainly we hav problems, but this is hopefully a move in th right direction. A great beginning, " Shade said by Joyce Inman 12 Sorority Registration Janice Jacobs RULES AND REGULATIONS: Chris Curran, marketing senior, and Laura Kauachi, business senior, look over the new rules and privileges that come with registering with the University.

FINAL JUDGEMENT: Lawyer, Tom Kolkel leads mem- bers of the UT 16 into the courtroom for sentencing, Sept. 24. Pictured are Bill Kern, James Oliver, Latin American studies junior, Justin McCoy and Kathleen Kern. " Whites lie! Blacks die! Set them free! Stop funding murder! Death to White Su- premacy! " Signs of protest held aloft in fervent de- termination images of the 60 ' s come to mind burning draft cards, billy clubs, a solitary black student against a sea of white, the peace sign, and the American flag sewn into the seat of a pair of jeans. Upon closer examination, it is evident the year is not 1967; the date is Sep- tember 25, 1987. Several hundred students protest the school ' s involvement with companies operating in South Africa as well as the judge- ment handed down to the " UT 16 " . Approximately one year after their shortlived takeover of President Cunningham ' s office, the " UT 16 " had their day in court. The sen- sationalized trial caused much controversy es- pecially when the court handed it ' s judgement down. Judge Leslie Taylor sentenced 12 of the 16 to jail terms ranging from three to six months. The group also was instructed to pay a maximum fine of $200 and their portion of court costs. Many in the UT community said the judge had been exceedingly severe, that the group was sacrificed as an example to others. Others be- lieved the sentences were appropriate because the students should have tried more legitimate channels of expression, not violated the law. The reactions of the UT students and faculty varied. Professor Mil- licent Marcus, an Ital- ian instructor, said, " As a whole, non- violent protesting is admirable. I believe in civil disobedience as a valid form of political protest. " She felt the jail terms were " ... exceedingly harsh and inappropriate. " In disagreement, Ed Sharpe, vice-president of administration, said he does not look at it quite the same. There is nothing Gary Kanad|ian WTOng with frCC speech, " ... as long as it is within the bounds of the law. " Most UT students said they admired their dedication to a cause, but disagreed with their methods, primarily the lock-in. " They went about it the wrong way, but they should not be forced to go to jail, " Curt Croshaw, finance junior, said. He also agreed with the Unl versity ' s right to refuse divestment. On the other hand, Annette Camino jour- nalism freshman, agreed with the sentencing. " Their punishment was fair it wasn ' t very. stiff, yet they also didn ' t get away with too easy a sentencing. They pretty much got what they deserved. " Charles Wolford, advertising junior, said if he had lead the protest movement he would noe have taken the office hostage. " I respect their idea, but I have to disagree with their meth- odology they could have protested in a different way. " But the protestors themselves said they did not feel this way. Beverly Burr, Plan II senior, said when normal channels have proven in- effective, the activists start having protests, many times illegally. " We need to express our- selves in a way that shows our dedication. " Sentenced to five months in jail, Daniel Gohl, physics graduate student, was not at all happy with the convictions. " I will go if I have to, but I ' m not sorry about what happened. I ' m willing to take my punishment, we have to abide by the laws we are trying to change. " He pointed out a 1975 incident when anti-apartheid protestors also occupied the president ' s office, but received no punishment; they were given amnesty. Kathleen Kern, government senior, was also convicted to a sentence of three months. She was " ... surprised at the judgement it ' s very rare to exceed the prosecution ' s recommended sentence. " She said she wished President Cun- ningham " ... would stand up for the students ' I view and take it to the regents. " President Cunningham was unable to issue a comment since he will be held responsible for helping UT decide disciplinary measures against " UT 16 " and must remain non-biased. While creating controversy, the UT 16 exv perience made people examine the divestment issues and evaluate their own feelings about how far a protest should go. The UT community got a taste of conflict, for some it was simply a radically theatrical event; for others,, it was a legitimate effort to further a worthy cause. I by Theresa Framing CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE: Austin resident Stuart Graharr chants with ralliers, Sept. 27, in protest to the sentencing ol ' the UT 16 and to the University ' s investments in South Africa. 14 UT Sixteen Demonstrations reminiscent of sixties by Theresa Froming The many protests and rallies seen at UT caused some people to open their eyes and wonder if this was unique to the university. Most students had heard about the anti- Vietnam and civil rights protests of the 60 ' s, but felt such radical activism had died out. As recent examples showed, nothing could be farther from the truth. Schools across the country saw a resurgence of noble causes and student activists. Most of the protests fo- cused on fighting in Central America and divestment from South Africa. University of California-Berkley: In the spring of 1985 and 1986, numerous protests against apartheid disrupted the cam- pus. There were over 1,000 arrests. Hamilton College: Twelve students, September 1986, participated in a sit-in for divestment. All were suspended for the fol- lowing semester. University of Wisconsin-Madison: On Saturday, Oct. 24, 1987, in the largest rally since the Vietnam protests of the 60 ' s and 70 ' s, 19 people were arrested for pro- testing planes used in Nicaragua. Cornell University: Demonstrators organized a sit-in at the University Ad- ministration building to protest the school ' s African involvement. The local police ar- rested over 1,000 protestors. Texas campuses were not exempt from these activities either. Southwest Texas State experienced intense divestment protests. The University of Houston responded to pressure from the university populus and broke eco- nomic ties with South Africa. At Texas A M University, students were arrested for passing out literature at an apart- heid march. The University of Texas at Aus- tin also felt the turmoil caused by the " UT 16 " movement. At many colleges, the protests evoked results. Schools such as The University of Wisconsin, Columbia, Vassar and the Uni- versity of California-Berkley responded to anti-apartheid cries and severed relations with South Africa. At countless others though, the movements marched on, fueled by vision and ideology. UT Sixteen 1 5 Stud early c Big D, b foi aqk up dad to hit thf y travel game Imagine the unsuspecting metropolis of Dal- las; all is quiet in the " Big D " everything runs smoothly, silently humming along. But (gasp), what ' s this?!!? . . . thousands of crazed UT students descending upon the city in fiend- ish hoards, all with one thought in mind, one twisted goal, one unifying bond . . . (gulp) PARTYING!! Was this a scene out of an old Godzilla movie? Not at all. Actually this invasion hap- pened every year when the University of Texas and the Oklahoma football teams met to go head-to-head at the Cotton Bowl. While rough- ly 38,000 students and faculty traveled to Dal- las, October 9-1 1, to see the game, many turned the weekend into a three-day party. As a diverse city, Dallas offered many means to satisfy everyone ' s tastes. People hit a variety of spots including West End Marketplace, Calientes, Fat Tuesdays, The Stark Club, Sparx and the State Fair. The most popular theme among the partyers was cruising Commerce Street on the Friday before the big game. Texas and Oklahoma fans mingled on the busy down- town roadway. Kim Doyle, fashion design sophomore, said, " The best part was going down Commerce Street on Friday. The worst parts were the hangovers, the game, and seeing my old boy- friend. " While it was enjoyable for most, some stu- dents said it was not all it was cracked up to be. Many football enthusiasts were not in the celebrating mood after losing to Oklahoma, 44- 9. Andrew Phillips, advertising freshman, said he partied on Commerce Street, Friday. On Saturday, he went to the game and then tore it up at an Alpha Phi Omega party. " It was okay, but it wasn ' t the highlight of my life, " Phillips said. Mauricio Castro, finance junior, said he felt differently. He thought the 1987 OU-UT showdown was just as good as previous years. " This one was a lot better because everyone was so fired up. Being in Dallas with all my UT pals was so much fun! Probably the worst part of the weekend was the second half of the game it would have been better if we had won and OU hadn ' t had so many people there. " Many, new to the University, had never seen an OU weekend. Transplanted Aggie, Deborah game and " ... was attracted because of the hype made by everyone at UT. I want- ed to see what the OU-UT game was really like, I knew it was ... MORE THAN JUST A FOOTBALL GAME! " Ing " ..had a choice time.. " at the game and at Sparx, a. new wave dance club. " My worst experience was when I got sick on some of the fans in front of me. My best moment of the entire weekend was when I found out they were from OU. Overall, the weekend was incredible, but it drained me financially, mentally and physically for the rest of the month. " While everyone who went might not have enjoyed such extreme experiences as Ing, most agreed it was a weekend that lived up to its reputation. So as Sunday drew to a close, Dallas said " good-bye " to the pooped, but pleased Longhorns as they drove homeward. She breathed a sigh of relief and began her wait until next year ' s happenings. : by Theresa Framing I 16 OU Weekend , MOliTHAN ; Daniel Byram CRUISIN ' : Gearing up for the game, students drive up and down Commerce Street supporting their favorite team.

OU Weekend 17 18 Vietnam CONCEPTUAL PLAN SOLEMN MOMENT: Pat Bennet, ex U.S. Marine, par- ticipates in the pledge of allegiance at the Texas Association of Vietnam Veterans meeting, Dec. 10. PLANS IN PROGRESS: The Vietnam Veterans Bouldin Creek Park was unveiled in September. The park was to serve as a recreational facility for all veterans and community residents. IN REMEMBRANCE: Special ceremonies occured at the State Capitol Rotunda for all veterans of war, Nov. 1 1 . Vietnam. The word silences some, evokes curiousity in others and embitters many. Eighteen years had passed since the capitol city of Saigon fell to the communist North Vietnamese, yet the Vietnam War emerged in 1987 and 1988 as one of the most talked about subjects in American history. With the 1982 dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. (a wall inscribed with names of those killed or missing in the war) and the recent release of films such as Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and Good Morning Vietnam, and award- winning books like Pace ' s Story, and even a television series, Tour of Duty, the generally avoided topic of Vietnam surfaced. Riding the wave of media attention and discussion about the war, Austin Vietnam veter- ans, residents and university students worked to keep the memories of those killed, or still con- sidered missing, alive. Plans for a " living memorial " in South Aus- tin were unveiled in September as part of this effort. The Vietnam Veterans Bouldin Creek Park Foundation was developed to serve as both a meditative place for veterans of all wars, and as a community recreational facility to remember those still living, Don Dorsey, vice president of the project, said. " Vietnam veterans, " Dorsey said, needed in- volvement, as with the community park. " We help the community, and that helps the vets. " Activity of Vietnam veterans was low until recent years, when media attention turned to- ward the war, according to Dorsey. " Platoon opened the door for Nam vets, " Dorsey said. He and members of Texas As- sociation of Vietnam Veterans, of which he was the 1987 treasurer, were part of a special screen- ing of the movie at the Arboretum, when it was released in Austin early in 1987. Counselors were present to discuss any anger and pain the film evoked because of its realistic quality. " Platoon, " Dorsey said, " isn ' t about what ' s right; wars aren ' t right people get caught in the middle. " A pharmacy major at UT from 1966 to 1968, Dorsey said he joined the Marine Corps because he ran out of college money, and wanted to be an infantryman fighting for his country. " After Nam, though, I wanted to do more drugs than sell them, " he said. The war was different from anything he could have imagined, Dorsey said, and once there, he found he disagreed with what was happening. " I never agreed, I just knew once I got there it wasn ' t the place to protest . . . You see what you ' re made of, " he said. " You didn ' t know anyone very long; you just marked those days off that calender. " Returning to UT after the war, Dorsey re- ceived an an degree, which he has used to design products for his Vietnam veterans- oriented company. As chairman for the awareness committee of TAW, which began in 1985 as a non-political, community involvement organization, Dorsey, with other members, visited Austin high schools, describing the Vietnam experience in an effort to " dispell the myths of Rambo. " Dorsey also said university students seem to be showing more interest, " but, young kids are more enthusiastic than the college kids two years ago. " Lack of interest about the war by college students may have been because the contro- versial subject was avoided in high school ed- ucation until recently, Thomas Philpott, UT history professor, said. Vietnam 19 Although many years have passed, a new awareness of the war has emerged " Platoon certainly made a difference, though, " he said, on the amount of questions and interest he received when lecturing about the war in his classes. " (Current) students were born at the height of the war in 1967 and 1968, and have no memory of it, but keep hearing about it, " he said. " They now realize they don ' t know any- thing about it. " Philpott, who had been teaching at UT for twenty years, said in the past, students seemed to have opinions, both positive and negative, about the war, yet did not have substantial knowledge about the subject. That is why he covered Vietnam in class. Vietnam veterans spoke in some of his class- es, Philpott said, and at one time, the Gov- ernment Department offered a class on the war. With the recent interest in the subject, Philpott said the possibility of again offering a course dealing exclusively with the war existed, but, " whoever teaches it would have to prepare for it (because) it is so controversial . . . and so explosive. " Media attention, movies and books did not encourage enough understanding about the Vi- etnam War, according to some who had de- voted themselves to veteran issues. Members of Angel Flight, the sister organ- ization to Arnold Air Society of the UT Air Force ROTC, dedicated themselves to a Prisoner of War Missing in Action project, making it the group ' s national ongoing issue, according to fall Angel Flight commander Tonia Carlisle, history senior. During the last week of September, members of Angel Flight and the UT Air Force, Army and Navy ROTC participated in a candlelight vigil in which members spent hour-long shifts for 24 hours manning a booth in front of Russell A. Steindhan Hall, in memory of POW ' s and MIA ' s of the war. " Not many people think about MIA POW issues, " Carlisle said. " It ' s been so long they feel, why think about it? " When the organization was present on the West Mall to offer information on POW MIA issues, response was generally low, or anti- military, Carlisle said. " If they ' re not involved in the military, they don ' t seem to really un- derstand. " Besides signing and sending petitions to the Vietnam government for the release of POW MIA remains, Carlisle said Angel Flight and Arnold Air Society members purchased bracelets, each with an MIA ' s name and de - scription on it, to be worn until he is found. Although the company from which the bracelets were ordered reported a much greater than average request for them during the year, Carlisle and Angel Flight member Barbara Frazar, psychology sophomore, said other stu- dents ' responses to the bracelets had been mostly of confusion. " Students ask, ' Did you know him (the name on the bracelet)? If not, what are you wearing this bracelet for? ' " Frazar said. The bracelets, Frazar said she told people, were a symbol for those who are still missing; that they have not been forgotten. Keeping alive the Vietnam War and veter- ans ' issues was the focus for certain groups nationally and locally since the war ended. In 1987 and 1988, their cause achieved a height- ened awareness because of spotlighting by the media; however, as with various subjects in the past, the risk of losing the public ' s interest existed.

They are " It ' s the most fabulous place to be in the world on Halloween. There ' s only, like, two p laces in the world where people go crazy like this. One, I hear, is Southern Illinois and then there ' s Austin, Texas, " Scott Roan, Texas A M graduate and Dallas resident in the guise of " Opus, " said. Transformed into one grand party, October 31, Austin and its nightlife attracted thousands of people ranging from students to locals to out- of-town visitors. It was, simply put by one Halloween reveler, " a totally radical party. " The excitement felt by all heightened and changed the atmosphere to turn Austin into a unique locale for Halloween. People and ac- tivities formed this once-a-year distinction. One could mix at a sorority fraternity parry New Year, Elvira, Freddie Kruger, Spuds McK ' enzie, the Noid or the Living Dead. The rangt was enormous, the atmosphere was alive, and the experience was . . . unique. The spirit did not end in the street, but! seeped into nearby clubs and bars as Halloweer partiers danced from one location to the next Clubs such as Flamingo ' s Bar and Maggie Mae ' ; contributed to the occasion with special prep- arations ranging from costume and pumpkin- carving contests to additional employees Although 203 Austin police officers and 28 Department of Public Safety troopers mingled with the 100,000+ partiers, problems were scarce. A few fights broke out during the eve- ning but basically the crowd brewed fun, not trouble. " I ' m not controlling the crowds, " one i or a host of other parties, dance to the beat of Javelin Boot or the Wayouts at the Union ' s Texas Tavern Showroom, experience " Phantom of the Opera " at Bates Recital Hall, get spooked at Phi Gamma Delta ' s hauntingly decorated house, bowl a strike at the Union Rec Center ' s Moonlight Rock ' n ' Bowl ... or, one could go to Sixth Street, an experience in itself. Sixth Street was, by far, the most distinctive quality of Austin ' s Halloween. It was " Austin ' s version of Mardi Gras, " Deanna Lester, ac- counting senior, said. What other description came close? More than 100,000 people, dis- guised in a fantastic array of costumes, joined in the celebration. " They were there for the wildness of the night and for the unique experience of Hal- loween on Sixth Street. Main attraction? All the people. And the costumes too, " one participant said. The crowd, en mass, circulated through the street in an enormous loop from Brazos to Red River as the roadway had been barricaded from Congress Avenue to 1-35. Out of this crowd rose a massive roar of voices, engulfing the street. Everyone seemed animated and united de- spite the overwhelming diversity of people and costumes the " varied species of humanoids, " as classified by one participant. Others defintely " let it all out " (some quite graphically), forgetting all usual inhibitions. Af- ter all, it was the only night out of the year to be a completely different person, whether as Baby police officer said. " Lots of crime going on down here. That ' s why I ' m down here. To fight crime. All I can dc is watch right now. With the help of the fellow officers we hope to round the crime up, " Bat- man (alias Mike Guire, a UT graduate) said. Halloween in Austin was definitely a ' ghouling ' fun time. A Texas football victor) over Texas Tech that afternoon added to the celebration and set the tone for the holiday. The enormous number of people involved created ar incredible array, filtering into parties, dances but especially onto Sixth Street. " It was really really a sheer ecstasy ol social gathering, " Christopher Johnson, archi- tecture freshman, said. by Joyce Inman 22 Hallum-cn y J ' McHALLOWEEN: Austin resident, Pete Hausmann peers through his Mac Tonight costume while working his way through the mob on 6th Street.

Is this a clip out of " Saturday Night Fever " a memory of the glory days of disco, of the " Me " generation, of polyester and gold me- dallions. It could not be 1988, not with the massive Safe Sex and AIDS campaigns. Yet, student interviews and Health Center statistics showed students participating in safe sex tech- niques was a modern myth. The days of " Free Love " were over, but safe and responsible sex practices had not yet found their way to UT. Most students were aware of the sexual malices. Their education began at childhood; they formed sexual attitudes in the days when herpes was as bad as it got. Now not only did students have to deal with communicable mala- dies such as syphillis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, in addition to pregnancy, there was something that could kill. During 1988, society ' s misconception was that the conservative trend was making people more responsible. Marriage and monogamy were back in full swing, and the sexual ex- perimentation of the 60 ' s was no longer in vogue. Yet, it seemed that most University heterosexual students had not changed their behavior accordingly. According to the Health Center, most of the changes in sexual behavior occurred within the male homosexual population primarily because they were the group with the largest number of AIDS cases. Dave, liberal arts senior, was a former ho- mosexual. He altered his sexual conduct because there was a question in his mind as to whether he had contracted AIDS. " I ' m not intimate Jeff Hod I FRIENDLY, BUT CAREFUL: Curtis Croshaw, finance junior, attempts to make a good first impression on his new I acquaintance, Deborah Ing, advertising junior. with anyone now because even though I tested negative, there is still a slim possibility I can infect another person. " But what needed to happen before hetero- sexual behavior was modified? " Rising numbers of heterosexuals with AIDS and personal contact with an AIDS victim are the two most realistic factors that would do it, " Scott Spear, Health Center physician, said. When asked if their sexual behavior had changed due to recent Safe Sex campaigns, an alarming 90% of those interviewed said they had not undergone any modifications. Monogamy was not popular among students. Peggy, marketing senior, gave a typical answer. " I usually have frequent partners interrupted by periods of monogamy, " she said. John, finance junior, also was intimate with several partners. " It ' s kind of worrisome, think- ing of all the implications you can ' t ignore what ' s out there. It could be a fatal mistake. " While this was not alarming, the percentage of condomless intimacy was. Based on student interviews, a prophylactic was only used in 15- 20% of all liaisons. Purchasing these contra- ceptives made females embarrassed and un- comfortable, while males thought there was nothing wrong with the concept of females handling that detail. The Student Health Center ' s statistics mir- rored the view that UT students were not af- fected by the Safe Sex trend. During the fall semester, hundreds of tests were run for sexually transmitted diseases (STD ' s). In addition, most students did not know that the Health Center could test for AIDS. A test (costing $17) could detect the HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Vi- rus) antibodies which show up when the AIDS virus is present. If the results were positive, the ELISSA test, a much more specific screen, was administered. Costing about $77, the ELISSA could tell with certainty if it was actually HIV and not a random virus. Two STD ' s which increased significantly in frequency were genital warts and chlamydia. According to the Health Center, there was a sudden surge in the number of warts cases, as was true with chlamydia. Sherry Bell, of the UT 24 Sexual Evolution .:JM : IT _..... Ji dm fa " ' HE BIRDS AND THE BEES..AND THE SQUIRREL: With a friendly rodent chaperoning, Brenda Cardenas, ology junior, and boyfriend Haracio Lau, electrical engineering senior.-share some time together between classes. Health Education Office, said, " It ' s the most widespread STD and since there are no real detectable symptoms for chlamydia, 80% of women can ' t tell they have it. " Over the fall semester, UT ran 1,295 tests. Roughly 12.7% of the students received positive results, which was an increase from the previous semester. While there was an obvious lack of students practicing safe sex, various organizations worked to combat this dilemma. Internationally, the World Health Organization held a global sum- mit in the spring of 1988 to combat the spread of AIDS. This summit was the first of its kind and many in the health services community applauded the symposium as the medical es- tablishment finally recognizing the seriousness of the disease. No longer was it " that ho- mosexual disease " . Various telephone " hotlines, " both national and local, helped to clear up AIDS confusion. The Health Center was also a valuable source of information for students and faculty. Mul- tiple programs such as Noon Talks, AIDS work- shops for UT personnel, Resident Advisor train- ing, newsletters in student grade reports and personal counseling all confronted sexual ques- tions and combated ignorance by teaching safe sex behaviors. Bell defined UT ' s objective. " We need to remove the barriers either through education or other means (such as availability of con- doms), so safe sex practices are as easy as pos- sible for students to achieve. " While UT students were immersed in sexual information, many failed to make use of it, choosing instead to continue in their reckless habits. Through the programs of the Health Center and media information, it could only be hoped that students would eventually realize the importance of Safe Sex.

But, it ' s a dream I have to make it to the Olympics. " According to Texas and U.S. swimming coach, Richard Quick, there were many reasons an Olympic hopeful would wish to train at the University. Aside from the school ' s " academic greatness and tremendous facilities, " Quick said, " the school shows commitment to its teams. " Three-time Olympian and two-time gold medalist Jill Sterkel, who competed in the swim trials for her fourth time in 1988, said she came to the University as a student in 1976, and has remained as an assistant swimming coach be- cause it is a " top university. " " I think the swimming center has the best pool in the country, " Sterkel said. Besides state of the art training facilities, academic opportunities, and guidance from Olympic coaches like Terry Crawford, women ' s track, Stan Huntsman, men ' s track, and Rich- ard Quick, swimming, UT athletes stressed their strong, competitive team backgrounds as an advantage for the summer trials.

" I go out and have a normal life, but a pure normal life: no drinking or smoking. " However, some UT athletes who prepared for the summer trials expected their normal routines to change drastically as the trials approached. Keith Wheeler, business freshman from Troy, Michigan who had been running since fourth grade, said conditioning would even- tually take its toll. " The training hasn ' t yet affected my social life, but later it will. I ' ll be too scared to go out. I ' ll be too obsessed, " he said.

It would be a welcomed sacrifice, since competing in the games would mark the pinnacle of success for the athlete. by Kim Stanick John Foxworth 26 Olympic Hopefuls -a: on UP AND OVER: Pan American Games gold medalist, Winthrop Graham perfects his hurdling technique during practice at Memorial Stadium.

Students from the University Catholic Center joined the 855,000 Catholics and non-Catholics in San Antonio for the papal celebration. Seeing the pope was an important event to Catholic students because " he is a living symbol of the faith of our religion and what our church is all about, " Father Paul Raspond, of the University Catholic Center, said. In his first tour of the Southern United States, Pope John Paul met with Jewish and Protestant religious leaders, denounced depri- vation of minorities, stood firmly by Catholic discontent at Catholic doctrine in the form of riots and protests during the pope ' s tour of the U.S. " The silent majority of American Catholics no longer associate with the Church because it has moved too far to the right, " Daniel Maguire, Marquette University theology pro- fessor said to People magazine. " The Church has attempted to silence people but the age of silencing is at an end. " Generally, students attending the mass dis- agreed with the national move to change Cath- olic doctrine. " The pope is trying hard to keep church values in our society, " Valerie Martinez, pharmacy freshman, said. Martinez also said that the Catholic doctrine the pope adheres to brings people closer to the church, and if these rules were abandoned or bent, the religion have no impact on his views, " Leonard Swidlei a Roman Catholic theologian at Temple Unt versity, said. Stenson said conflicts between some Amer ican Catholics and the pope sprang from dif ferent cultural views. " The American publi finds the pope ' s stable stance on Catholic doc trine difficult to accept because the Unitei States views Catholic issues as they do polictica ones, " Stenson said. " When individuals disagree with the pop) and his teachings, the American people believ ' that they can simply change the laws, but th Catholic church is not set up in a democrat! way, " he said. The discord created by the pope ' s visit ben efited public awareness, according to Joan Horn T lSrX A S doctrine and prayed for world peace. The pope ' s visit provoked national contro- versy concerning the pontiffs rigid stance on Catholic teachings such as prohibition of abor- tion and artificial contraception, refusal to or- dain women as ministers and rejection of ho- mosexual relations. Despite instances of dispute within the American Catholic Church, the students at- tending the papal mass said the controversies were subordinate to the " inspirational and the- ological uplifting experience, " Jennifer Alex- ander, communications junior, said. In response, students who attended the mass said they support the pope ' s opinions on abor- tion, homosexuality, artificial means of birth control and women ' s position in the church. " I support the pope on all issues. If I did have a disagreement with one of the issues, I would try to suppress it and support the pope, " Al- exander said. Nationally though, many Americans voiced would break apart. Concerning church policy, John Stenson, pe- troleum engineering graduate student, said that church doctrine is based on the Bible. " The Bible is not changing so there is no reason our church doctrine should change. " Some, however, disagreed with the church ' s objective. They said the church should help support the congregation, and alienating those who disagree was unfair. " In my mind, issues like divorce and abor- tion are consequences of underlying problems and people need the support of the church in times of crisis, not to be abandoned by it, " Elizabeth Caldcleugh, international business sophomore, said. Although the pope heard this dissent during his visit, policy changes supported by many Americans were unlikely to come about, na- tional theologists said. " It is pretty clear to me that he has not listened at all to what people are saying. They administrator of the University Catholic Centei " The fact that the issues have life to then conveys that the people aren ' t complacent abou the role of religion in their lives and that they beginning to think about that role, " she said. Since the Catholic doctrine raised controversy some students ' beliefs incurred problems. Fathe Raspond said, when counseling students whc disagreed with specific Catholic doctrine, th importance was to focus on the central Christiai belief. " Students need to understand that the; can disagree with the church in theory, but the; must understand and accept the consequence from this freedom of conscience, " he said. Although national dissent arose during thi pope ' s visit, curious onlookers and faithful wor shippers alike joined in the once in a lifetimi celebration and were entranced by the charism; and renown of Pope J ohn Paul II. by Michelle Moon Pope ' i Visit 28 VADRE Itrf . - ' ' ,,a John Mootv WAVING BLESSINGS: Mamie Lara of Victoria cheers as the Popemobile drives past.

One San Antonio priest collected 97 varieties of souvenirs including the pope scope which allowed worshippers to see over crowds, pope masks, comic books and papal paper dolls. Button mania also swept the crowds as spec- tators displayed the pope blessing baseball teams and even reciting movie themes. One button quoted the pope saying, " Go ahead, bless my day. " And for those worshippers who wanted to relive the visit on videotape, a 60-minute ver- sion was produced, filled with " the grandeur and pageantry of the visit ... " The tape, which cost $35 per copy, came in English, Spanish and Polish. The award for tackiest popepourri went to the pope lawn sprinkler featuring the pope in white robes with his hands extended. A hose connected to the device emitted water from the pontiffs outstretched arms. Also for sale, solid silver papal commem- orative coins displayed Pope John Paul ' s profile on one side and the Alamo on the other. Along the parade routes of San Antonio, vendors set up booths for food, drink and homemade souvenirs. Selling everything from porcelain busts of the pope to posters, coins and fans, entrepreneurs watched people attending the mass and parade stream by but without stopping, browsing or buying. Merchants with drinks and food for hot and hungry parade watchers faired better than souvenir peddlers. Soft drinks and snow cones, costing up to a dollar, were bought without complaint. Although vendors in San Antonio prepared to profit from the heavenly sales of pope souvenirs, worshippers attending the mass and along the parade route did not fulfill the monetary hopes of entrepreneurs. There was plenty of merchan- dise to choose from, yet fans of the pope seemed content to simply view the real thing. by Michelle Moon Pope ' s Visit 3 1 The Austin Marathon keeps participants ON THE RUN In the dark of morning several thousand athletes were poised behind the Arboretum. The lines were drawn and Mayor Frank Cooksey and City Council member George Humphrey stood beside the National Guard cannon. The athletes stood at attention anticipating the gun, syn- chronizing their watches. Boom! They ' re off! This was not the site of a local north versus south-Austin Civil War. This was the second annual Austin Marathon and Council member Humphrey just fired the starter ' s gun. The Austin Marathon had little to be desired as far as race conditions were concerned. High humidity, gusting wind and an above normal temperature dominated the race, Nov. 1 5 . Nev- ertheless, an estimated 2,250 runners partic- ipated in the marathon with three-fourths of the runners entered in the shorter half-marathon. The marathon route started at the Arboretum in northwest Austin and extended south on MoPac to 45th Street where the runners were then directed south on Guadalupe. The race continued downtown to Barton Springs Road and finally ended at Zilker Park. Before the race, Sam George, from College Station, was more than nervous. The night before, " I had nightmares about that hill up ahead (the one behind the Arboretum), " George said. For most runners, a hill was not a devastating encounter, but try that same hill while confined to a wheelchair like George. George had " wheeled " in 1 1 previou s marathons. Later that morning he won the wheelchair event with a time of 3: 14:09. Winners in other divisions included Jason Shear, men ' s full marathon with a time of 2:35:27; Rose Garcia, women ' s full marathon, time 3:25:52; Dwayne Allen, men ' s half mar- athon, 1:09: 1 1 and Sherill Webb, women ' s half marathon 1:26:30. Race director Marc Beers organized the entire event and was aided by Humphrey who cleared the race through bureaucratic channels and won the city council ' s support for the marathon. Unavailable for comment, Beers was praised by many runners for his organization of the race. Winner Jason Shear said the race was organized well and he particularly liked the reception offered to the runners at the finish line. " I thought the many volunteers (from Gold- en Life Family Fitness Center) who helped run- ners recuperate after the race was handled well, " Shear said. Tents, cots and blankets were set-up to administer first aid, massages and advice to the weary runners. With the apparent success of the marathon the city still needed to address one problem to insure the marathon ' s future success the lack of prize money. Without prize money, the marathon stood little chance of attracting world-class runners. In comparison to race times at a Dallas or Houston marathon which offers prize money, Shear ' s winning finish was about 20 minutes slower. However, the Austin Marathon was still a relatively new event to the city. Given more time and prize money, the race could attract more world-class, competitive runners. Humphrey ' s optimism and the city ' s organ- ization were among the reasons that the mar- athon attracted so many out-of-town runners. Humphrey estimated 1500 participants were from outside of Austin. For its first two years the marathon achieved great success. Council member Humphrey was even more optimistic. " The race has done so well that I forsee it becoming a top marathon in the country, " Humphrey said. " It ' s well or- ganized and it takes a heck of a lot of effort.

Jason Shear, chemistry senior, had set out to run a good time and hopefully finish in the top ten. He not only accomplished that but won with a time of 2:35:27. Although the Austin Marathon was his great- est accomplishment so far, his inexperience in marathon running was not evident during the race. His first two marathons were in St. Louis. " My first race was terrible because I wasn ' t prepared, " Shear said. In his third and fourth marathons. Shear did not finish. The Austin race was Shear ' s fifth try at a decent running. Shear said his performance suffered because of the weather, but that also helped him com- paratively to other runners. " Others went out real hard and burned out early, " Shear said. " I set out to just improve myself and it worked. " Shear ' s strategy began to pay off at the 25th mile of the 26 mile race. " At the 23rd and 24th mile I could see the race leader stop and jog, " Shear said. He termed this as " hitting the wall. " At the 25th mile, Shear passed the leader and he knew he could win if he kept the same pace. Shear ' s crosssing the finish line also came as a surprise to the race announcer. As Shear fin- ished, the announcer mistook his long hair and slender build as that of a woman. For a short time the crowd could not believe a woman had won the marathon. Shear managed to train for races while con- tinuing his studies, and found running actually aided his studying. " I ' ve learned to manage my time. In fact, if I don ' t run, I can ' t concentrate as much, " Shear said. Shear ' s marathon training seemed a rigorous challenge to most people. He alternated between " long " and " off weeks. His long week con- sisted of running 1 20 miles per week. His off week included 70-80 miles per week. This training was a Swedish method know as " Fartlek " training. Ironically, this Columbia, Missouri native was not alone among previous Austin Marathon winners. Last year ' s winner was also from Co- lumbia. So while Missouri had a monopoly on the Austin marathon for the past two years, this relatively new event to Austin could prosper with increased competition from area runners.

" Francis Woomin Wu New friends, new school, new way of life. Leaving one ' s homeland to continue an ed- ucation in another country is a big step for a foreign student. With so many universities to choose from in the United States, why pick the University of Texas at Austin? Feeling the education system was better in America, Victor J. Steiner Jr., came to UT from Salvador at age 17 to major in business finance and management. His father had received in- formation about UT and encouraged Steiner to further his education in the United States. The University was chosen not only because of its reputation, but also since some of his relatives lived close by. " My first few days were horrible and tough, " Steiner said. " I didn ' t realize what was going on; I felt alone and homesick. " For foreign students who might have prob- lems or who just needed a friend, they do have a place to turn. " The International Office helps students from other countries, " Sonia Martenco, advertising senior, said. " They treated me really well and I was very pleased that this service was offered. " The Brazilian lived in Mexico City with her parents where she attended an Amer- ican high school. After graduating, Martenco got " in the American mood " and chose the University because it was less expensive and close to her parents. In some cases, students came to UT to take advantage of the numerous specialized programs offered. Nurat Ozsunay, a law graduate from the University of Istanbul in Turkey, came to work on his master ' s degree after receiving a law degree in Turkey. " I ' m here at UT in the MCJ (Master of Comparative Jurisprudence) program, " Oz- sunay said. " To be in this program, you must have a law degree from another country. " Along with a partial scholarship, Ozsunay came to UT because of the MCJ program and the law school ' s reputation. Not only does the law school have an out- standing reputation, but the engineering school by Debbie Wolantejus is also well-known, as Andres Forero, engjtj neering junior, said. When Forero applied 11 UT from Bogota, Columbia, he was informed 11 a fair tuition which directed him in his choidjj " After I was all set to go, " Forero said, " I fourijl out the cost was actually three times as much || I was told. Apparently, they sent me the oi ' price list! " He still chose UT and found everything dif ferent from what he expected. " Wow! This the real thing! " Forero said. Tuition for foreign students was always important factor to consider. Samuel Aten Roberts obtained his bachelor ' s degree in gineering in Sierre Leone, Africa in 1982. Aft working for two years, Atere-Roberts decided work for a Masters degree. " One of the mai reasons I chose UT, " he said, " was because i Texas ' economy.

From naval bases ross the oceans to Inependence Hall in Phil- lelphia to Zilker Park in Austin, Americans immemorated their Constitution ' s 200th rthday, September 17, with musical concerts, lest lectures and the sounding of " Bells Across merica. " " It ' s pretty impressive that our constitution is ic oldest one in the world, " Ethan Wiener, Deral arts sophomore, said. Two hundred years the day after the signing of the document, the itionwide festivities were more spectacular tan rhe one that first greeted the Constitution ' s .tification in 1788. At Zilker Park, a gathering of city officials mmemorated the event as Mayor Frank Cook- y reminded approximately 200 spectators Dout the document ' s role. " It is because of the institution that we are able to enjoy the free- om we have today, " Cooksey said. Texas Supreme Court Justice Raul Gonzales mphasized that educating children about the vent will insure the document ' s preservation. )ther judiciary officials of the Texas State Su- me Court, the Austin Court of Appeals and ne Texas Court of Criminal Appeals shared in be celebration in a formal, fully-robed joint ionvocation at the Texas Capital. President Reagan, in his address to an es- iimated 1 10,000 listeners outside Independence ia i, highlighted the ceremony by leading the ;udience in the Pledge of Allegiance. Former hief Justice Warren Burger then capped off he parade of floats and marching bands by inging a replica of the long-silenced Liberty Jell, which started a similar tolling of other bells icross the country. National Constitutional events on September 1 7 inititated an outpour of concern and aware- less on campus. The Young Conservatives of Texas sponsored a West Mall rally to remind Spectators of the right to free speech. One spectator, Louis Fernandez, architecture- ;ngineering freshman, said it made him ap- preciate the " founding fathers who made this country democratic so we could be free. " Amid the nationwide pomp and parade, ts and fanfare, was a timely reexamination of United States ' values and institutions due to nanticipated events of the past year. One of these events that focused attention on the limits and abuse of presidential power was the Iran arms scandal. " I watched the Iran-contra investigations. Just seeing Oliver North plead the first amend- ment showed the Constitution at work, " Kim Brown, Russian junior, said. Renee Schmeling, psychology sophomore, re- PERSONAL oOlVlut HC HC REVACPOIEL REV D HARRISON REV SETH DELEERY 209 I 27TH ST Frank Ordonez lated her views on the affair ' s examination of the relationship between Congress and President. " I think the implied powers clause has been used more than the framers of the Constitution in- tended it to be, " Schmeling said. Additionally, Bork ' s unsuccessful nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987 brought to mind fundamental questions about the responsibilities of both the Senate and president, about the interpretation of the Constitution by the Su- preme Court, about the nature of future laws and even of the nation itself. In widely publicized antiapartheid move- ments on campus, again the role of the courts and preservation of rights of the accused, as well as the freedom of the press in its coverage, were exemplified in a highly visible manner. Tim Weltin, government senior, recalled a past incident. " During the spring of ' 86, I was involved in the antiapartheid movement which SUNDAY GATHERING: All Saints Episcopal Church on 27th and Whitis offers many the opportunity to exercise their right to worship as they please. resulted in many arrests, " Weltin said. " The administration had failed to recognize our rights guaranteed in the first amendment. But once observed, they apologized for their oversight. " For the most part, September 17, 1987 marked the climax of the good humored Con- stitutional celebration. But in terms of the recent events that helped illuminate the present role of the Constitution, Weltin had this to say: " I am a fan of the constitution, but I wish it was observed more on campus, today. " Weltin was not alone, for President Reagan in his Capitol gala speech reminded his listeners of the same. " For almost 200 years we have lived with freedom under the law, and perhaps we ' ve become complacent about it. " In light of these events, both festive and thought-provoking, " We the People, " from students to government officials, were reminded of the historical and significant impact of the United States Constitution. by Michael Trust Constitution 37 af- THE RACE TO THE WHITEHOUSE The race began with many runners but soon dwindled to only a few as the final stretch neared. Scandal. Adultery. Mudslinging. Cheap shots. These topics, usually covered by national scandal sheets, seeped into the mainstream po- litical spectrum and the 1988 presidential race. The race featured many players, many at- titudes and many unexpected turns. However, these players their actions and attitudes were important to America ' s political and eco- nomic future and the unexpected turns, in some cases, were shocking. In many ways, keeping up with the Dem- ocratic presidential candidates was like reading a scandal sheet. Gary Hart, the party ' s front run- ner in the fall, was a recognizable and electable candidate. One of Hart ' s aides said in April of 1987, " It will take some time, but people are going to recognize a lot of things in Hart that they didn ' t see before. " The irony of retrospect aside, Hart was caught having an affair with model Donna Rice A TEXAS HOWDY FOR THE DUKE: Michael Dukakis, the front runner for the Democratic nominaiton, campaigned hard in Texas and visited Austin trying to capture the Hispanic vote. PRESS HANDS: TV cameras and reporters gathered around Gary Hart during his visit to UT asking him about his record and his hopes for Super Tuesday. after challenging the press to find out anythii derogatory about himself. Hart dropped out ol| the race only to re-enter in December, drawi more attention to his private life and causi: other Democratic candidates to criticize his ac tions in terms of what would be best for t party. The brief appearance of Senator Joe Biden a Democratic candidate weakened the party political analysts said. After the press plowi into his past, it was found that Biden had committed plagarism in several instances and had been in academic trouble in college. Biden dropped out of the race almost immediately in order to save his position in the Senate. Jesse Jackson, also running for the Dem- ocratic nomination, showed growing support from blacks and whites. Coined as the mosi controversial candidate because of his policies and his race, Jackson said, " America is more colorblind than it was four years ago. I can scrutinized like others. " Not so, said his opponents. Jackson, the opposition countered, was not asked the tough questions, his background was not researched thoroughly, and he could not be a serious can- didate because he had no elected experience. However controversial and unelectable Jackson 38 I9H8 Presidential Campaign may have been, his number one position with blacks and his growing force as a Democratic candidate could not be ignored. Senator Albert Gore Jr., if nominated, would have been the youngest candidate for president. Although he did not campaign in Iowa and aimed all his efforts toward the South and Super Tuesday, his moderate stance on issues attracted voters and gave him strength to be a serious and powerful voice in the race. His wife Tipper drew more media attention early in the campaign due to her book, Raising PC Kids in an X-Rated Society. Tipper ' s commitment to abolishing por- nography and drugs in American society put Gore at slight risk in his pursuit of the pres- idency. " I worry about an America where dreams don ' t come true, " Representative Richard Gephart said during his race for the Democratic nomination. Gephardt, who emphasized trade and economic policy especially trading with nations that produced automobiles, had to wor- ry about an America where his dreams did not come true. Because of his changing policy views and the success of his moderate counterpart, Gore, he withdrew from the race in April of 1988. A brief and nondescript appearance by Bruce Babbitt was also a characteristic of the Dem- ocratic race. Unable to break out of the single digits, Babbitt was forced out of the race early. Supporters as well as critics said Babbitt would get nowhere because he " is selling reality unpleasant choices for complex solutions. " These unpleasant choices centered on raising taxes that no amount of " standing up " would sell to the American people. Michael Dukakis, the strongest candidate coming out of Super Tuesday, ran primarily on the " Massachusetts Miracle. " In a dead heat with Jackson, party analysts said Dukakis must capture other minority votes and do well in the Northeast. This task seemed easy because Dukakis ' base of strength was the north. The man with the bow tie, Paul Simon, was also in the running for president, at least for a while. Deciding not to concentrate on the South and Super Tuesday, Simon committed political suicide after doing well in early primaries. In April of 1988, he declared he would no longer be an active candidate even though his name would appear on the ballots. OPTIMISTIC BUT NOT SUCCESSFUL: Gary Han, Democratic candidate who dropped out of the race shortly after Super Tuesday, spoke to UT students on March 7. " WE WANT JESSE! " : UT students stood outside Hogg Auditorium in anticipation of Jesse Jackson ' s speech Jan- uary 28. Micharl Stravaio 1988 Presidential Campaign 39 . . . WHITEHOUS Although the Republican race for president had less players, both sides had its own character tests and name calling. Former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, saying he was running solely to oppose George Bush ' s economic and foreign policy, dropped out after only two primaries. Reverend Pat Robertson, running on a moral message, said early in the campaign that " we must return to the old fashioned concept of moral restraint and abstinence before marriage. " Robertson ' s eldest son, however, was born a mere 10 weeks after his marriage. After fin- ishing second in Iowa to Robert Dole and capturing 17 delegates, Robertson in April de- clared he was no longer an active candidate for the presidency. He did say that he had a man- date from God to run again in 1992. The man who declared he was " ... in the race to the end, " Jack Kemp, also fumbled his dreams for the presidency. Unable to win the moral extreme right or emerge between Dole or Bush, Kemp was forced out of the race. A man said to be the Republican counterpart to Bruce Babbitt, Pete Du Pont also stressed taxation. The realistic solutions proposed by Du Pont were shot down by the American people when he could not capture more than 10 percent of the vote, and dropped out after the New Hampshire primary. Senate Minority Leader Robert Dole, Re- publican hopeful for presidential nominee, was in a dead heat with Vice President George Bush for the nomination until Super Tuesday. Step- ping down his campaigning in Texas, Dole estimated a big victory for Bush in Bush ' s home state. Bush did, and swept the state and the South. Although Dole ' s wife, Elizabeth, re- signed from the department of transportation to help with his campaign, it did not cure his sense of fatalism about Super Tuesday. The 1 1th commandment for the Repub- licans, thou shall not partake in mudslinging or name calling, was broken by Dole and Bush during the campaign when the race got com- petitive. After Bush had soundly defeated Dole in the New Hampshire primary, Dole respond- ed by saying to Bush " stop lying about my record. " For Dole, his campaign had taken a turn for the worse and he dropped out in April. One of the few Vice Presidents that made a bid for the presidency and did well, George Bush had the Republican nomination sewed up by April of 1988. Bush dispelled " the wimp factor " after his confrontation with Dan Rather during an interview on CBS News. Rather, who wanted to question Bush about his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair, received only rebuttal and hostility from the Vice President. One of the most monetarily sound cam- paigns, Bush emerged from Super Tuesday a clear winner and nominee of the Republican party. President Reagan, after a long silence, finally endorsed his Vice President for the Re- publicans. Although all the votes had not been cast and the delegates had not attended the conventions, the presidential race was both eventful and historical. The candidates, in success and failure, faced pressure from the media, the public and their own sometimes clouded, backgrounds in their bids for the highest office in the country. by Michelle Moon 40 1988 Presidential Campaign FORUM CONFRONTS CANDIDATES by Michelle Moon It started as an abstract idea discussed over margaritas but turned into the first national political torum of college editors. The Student Primary Forum, held in Dallas at Southern Methodist University in February, did not begin in the minds of television ' s cor- porate giants, but as a project of the Students ' Association at The University of Texas. With the help of Kathleen Jamieson, G.B. Dealy Regents Professor in Communication, and many SA volunteers, Robert Nash, Young Conservatives of Texas President, put together a program that featured students directly ques- tioning presidential candidates. The forum was presented in conjunction with the Texas Debates televised through the Public Broadcasting Sys- tem and the College Satellite Network. While PBS televised only the debates, CSN, a closed circuit television system that served 500 cam- puses, televised the student forum. Originally, Nash had hoped that the forum would be carried by a national broadcasting corporation and into the homes of students across the country. " The idea isn ' t totally cost effective, but if someone like Bill Cosby, who did the Vote America campaign, decided the idea was worthwhile it could have been televised nationally and had more political impact, " Nash said. " With CSN, students had to make a real effort to go out and see the forum. " The student forum drew college editors form 55 schools including Princeton, University of Washington, and Yale. " Even though the fo- rum wasn ' t nationally televised, the fact that we could ask questions directly to the participants in the debates made it worthwhile, " said one college editor. Michael Stravato PUSHING HARD FOR VOTES: Young Con- servatives of Texas and the University Democrats worked to raise funds for their favorite candidates by selling t-shirts and buttons, and encouraged students to vote on Super Tuesday by posting signs and handing out fliers.

" Length of time off like if it ' s a -day weekend and also money available transportation, because I always have to take ' lane, and al so how much work I have to do the next week, " he said. ; or others, the decision to go home was much pier.

Home is where the hot tub is ... my cats, and Christmas because the cats ys tear up the Christmas tree. Sneezing fits that ' s home, " Joel Irby, electrical engineer- g sophomore from Denton, said. But what made everyone ' s home different? " hat ' s really tough. The atmosphere. My Dm ' s always there for me. I have a really good ationship with her, " Scarlet Robbins, psy- ology senior from Corpus Christi, said. Again, everyone had different opinions, jming from varied backgrounds provided for fffering perspectives and realities. " Well, I tme from a divorced family. I don ' t know. I jink my family gets along better when we n ' t all live together. I think there are times we all get together and laugh at silly things, " Jennifer Head, English junior from Austin, said. Once home, new priorities arose. Many stu- dents had specific activities in mind to delve into upon their arrival. " Crash and watch T.V., " Peter Shen, electrical engineering soph- omore from Houston, said. " Well, God, I always give my parents a real big hug, and then my dog jumps all over me and licks my face, " Suloni Sood, art freshman from Houston, said. While away from home, students missed objects, people, activities. " I miss the polish on my hardwood floor, " Ray Kerlick, Plan II fresh- man, said. " I miss the support group. I have my family and friends there. Those are the most important things in the world to me . . . That support group feeds into my artwork. It ' s so vital. Be- cause you ' re a product of your environment; and at home it was warm and reassuring. I fed off of other people ' s strength and their belief in me helped me believe in myself. " Sood said. " I guess I miss the most just being able to dump all my problems on my mom real late at night, " Gryder said. Even though students looked forward to vis- its home, a number of them also enjoyed it at school, and for many reasons. " Freedom. Sense of being on my own. It ' s good practice for the real world, " Wendy Kautz, marketing soph- omore from Corpus Christi, said. " I don ' t have to eat my grandmother ' s cook- ing, " Eva Maza, journalism freshman from La- redo, said. For one individual in particular the inde- pendence did not have as much significance. " I don ' t think about it much. I guess it used to be a big thing, but now ... " Danny Gonzalez, astromony-geology senior from Laredo, said. In lieu of the number of students who trav- eled home on weekends or holidays, one might think traffic patrol would increase a great deal. However, according to Sargeant Stalder of the UT Police, this was not true. " Not particularly. We have our units on the roads, and if there ' s a problem, we go to it. " The amount of additional traffic varied. " It actually depends on activities going on over the weekend. If it ' s the fall and there ' s a football game, students stay on campus. " Stalder said. Although student travel did not affect the Austin area a great deal, weekend vacations meant much more to students. Whether home was haven, get-a-way, retreat or laundromat, each student realized the importance of family while at school. by Joyce Inman Whether just visiting to do the laundry or to relieve a case of homesickness, students could count on family and . . .

There ' s no greater feeling when " all the presents are opened and all the food has been eaten and you can sit back and relax, " Watson said. While most students travel home to spend Christmas, many included Austin festivities in their annual holiday customs. At The University of Texas, December brought eggnog parties, concerts of both sacred melodies and contem- porary carols and imaginative, if not bizarre, dorm decorations. The crown of Christmas decor on campus was the Littlefield Home. The festive theme centered around a tremendous tree covered with strands and strands of lights, and the actual lighting ceremony was a festive party with live seasonal entertainment and captivated crowds. But what would Christmas be without SHOPPING?? Local malls were first to herald the " buying season. " It took teams of 12-15 people working from 9:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. over 3,000 man-hours to construct Barton Creek ' s " Colossial Christmas " exhibit. Giant toy soldiers and teddy bears frolicked around a 30-foot tree, covered with rocking horses and bears. Children and adults alike squealed with delight to find the 8-foot " Teddy P. Barton " truly chat with them (actually, the conversations were possible via an employee hidden within one of the larger presents). The real star of the show, as it should be, was Santa. Nothing else could suddenly turn tots from " naughty " to " nice " for months prior to the 25th. When the crowds made shoppers feel more like sardines, myriads of folks escaped in their cars to roam Austin looking for the Christmas spirit. Hundreds drove through suburban neighborhoods, down 6th Street and Congress, past the tree decorating the Capitol to end up at Austin ' s all-time favorite tree: the Zilker Park tree of lights. Celebrating its 20th year, the electrical tree stood 175 feet and was composed of 3,393 lights. Suprisingly, it only took one day to erect. Santa ' s Village, a newer attraction, was nes- tled under the huge holiday beacon and in- cluded Santa ' s House (equipped with a real-live Mr. and Mrs. Claus), a post office where chil- dren could actually drop North Pole requests, a stage with live entertainment and a Yule log pit filled with monstrous burning trees. Other holiday sights could be found in the Botanical Gardens, which served hot chocolate while visitors gazed at the lighted trees, and the Trail of Lights, designed for drivers. Because of the wide array of Christmas fes- tivities, there was something for everyone. For students caught in the midst of the final frenzy, Austin ' s holiday festivities provided an essential getaway. by Theresa Fronting Christmas 45 Football and Texans a combination that goes together better than beer and pizza. From the Rio Grande to the Red River, the sport is considered to be the state ' s second religion. Yet, this uniquely Texas heritage was shared by the whole nation one Sunday each year. Skeptics, bookworms, young and old alike gath- ered ' round the television with pretzels, popcorn and " other edibles to commemorate a famous American tradition Super Bowl Sunday! Super Bowl ' 88 was the force that halted all other activity on the 31st of January, providing plenty of reasons to gather together, partying with friends being the most common. This popular notion rendered a string of parties dur- ing the " Super Bowl Weekend. " The Castillian sponsored a " pre-Super Bowl " party two days before the event, while the Texas Union held their annual " couch-potato " party in the Texas Tavern for all local spudsters. Recreational Events Committee chairperson for the Union, Sharon Christian, elementary education junior, expressed her reasons for co- ordinating the event. " I ' ve always loved Col- orado which has had good teams and I wanted to see them celebrated, " Christian said. " There are more Broncos ' fans here, but they ' re all quiet ' cause they ' re losing, " Tim Sabo, advertising senior, who organized last years " couch potato " Super Bowl bash, said. Local hot spots also joined in the spirit. One popular spot for students, Jeremiah ' s, had " Refrigerator " Perry over that Sunday to host its Super Bowl celebration. Additionally, Mag- gie Mae ' s advertised over the radio weeks prior to the event. Their celebration included three extra color televisions, a free buffet and one . . . Just For Kick VCR raffle prize. " Unfortunately there were many Bronco fans, so the crowd was kind of dead, especially when the one Skins fan there won the VCR, " a worker at Maggie Mae ' s said. As for those who were unfortunate enough to miss all the fanfare, there were still opportunities to catch the game in most dormitory TV rooms provided a seat was still left. If not, many private parties were available. For some however, the books did not close even while the game went on. With a heavy text on his lap in front of a TV airing the game, Jester resident Robert Halen, electrical engi- neering freshman, said, " Studying came first before the Super Bowl, and besides I don ' t like the Broncos or the Redskins. " A Moore Hill resident said he was still in- terested in the Bowl even after missing half the game to weekend travel. " I ' m still rooting for the Broncos. I ' d never root for the Redskins ' cause they ' re against Dallas ... no way! " Mar- tin Castillo, RTF freshman, said. Other reasons added to the list by party hoppers were mostly in reference to the fringe benefits. " Free food and little noise makers and candy in a bag that ' s great! " Ted Wood- ward, computer science senior attending the " couch-potatoes " party, said. Another partyer commented on her true rea- son for attending another party. " Because they have a color TV and we don ' t, " K.D. Cockburn, government sophomore, said. Lest one forget the reason for this social gathering, the Washington Redskins dominated the game with new records and a stunning upset over the Denver Broncos. The final score, 42-10 symbolized a game meant for the history books. Redskins ' quarterback Doug Williams h ed the startling team performance. " I ' m roc I for Doug Williams because he ' s the first b quarterback, and he ' s doing a fine job, " Mo Tave, psychology freshman, said. Her Super Bowl party mate agreed.

Another surprising Skins personality rookie Jimmy Smith who first opened the tory gates while setting some new records, only did he make his first NFL touchdown a memorable 59-yard run in the second qua but also went down in history as the first rot to score two touchdowns in the Super Bowl Bronco quarterback John Elway was without support though. Referring to the aln instantaneous losing battle, Steve Gonzalez, ondary education senior, said, " Well, it ' s g to be a long uphill battle, but if anyone car it, it would be Elway. " Other Denver fans shared his optimistic : timents. " They lost the Superbowl last yea they deserve our support . . . and I like J Elway, " Margaret Ashley, history sophom said.

Though the Seeberger family filed a lawsuit in September 1987, seeking $40 million in punitive damages from the UT and national chapters of the fraternity, the University stood behind its obligation to deal with the problem of hazing. " The threat of a lawsuit is with you all the time, " Sharon Justice, Dean of Students said. " We decided we were going to take that risk . . . We decided the benefits (stopping hazing, developing student leadership skills) were worth it. " Yet, in light of all this, there were still hazing incidents by groups such as The Texas Cowboys and Silver Spurs. According to the commission ' s report, " both organizations continue to permit hazing in some of its most blatant and offensive forms. " Commission Chairman John Ratliff ... a willful act done for the purpose of humiliating a student or causing indignity, either physical or mental. recommended that the two groups be prohib- ited from representing the Universtiy at official UT events. Additionally, the Alpha Zeta chapter of Gamma Phi Beta sorority was investigated for hazing violations in early February. The national office of Gamma Phi Beta gave instant alum status to each active in order to re-establish the sorority with new members in the future. Students ' reactions to the problem of hazing were mixed. " Once the authorities have de- termined what ' s hazing, then it ' s up to the organizations to follow through. And if they keep on doing it, then it ' s their prerogative. And if they get caught, then they have to face the consequences, " Steven Livity, business soph- omore, said. Though the strong attitudes of the admin- istration, and students about hazing became apparent, President William Cunningham said the whole campus should cooperate to eliminate hazing. " So long as there is a conspiracy of silence, so long as no one is willing to come forward and testify to the alleged assaults, so long as young men and their relatives place fear of social ostracism above fear of injury or death, the public should realize that the University will not be able to totally eliminate hazing, " Cunning- ham said. by Michael Trust If actives are going to be physically or mentally abused then they shouldn ' t do it it should be limited. Renise Favor, business freshman Surprising enough, everything they did had a pur- pose, and I didn ' t see it until later on . . . but what we did was not hazing. Gardner Randall eco- nomics junior.

No after what day of the week, or what hour of day, a person could choose from a wide ion of amusements. Austin was long recognized for its high pality, local music. In just about every loky club or crowded bar, a live band was k rforming. Whether it was at the Texas nion on campus, Antone ' s on Guadalupe the Back Room on Riverside, local bands ere given plenty of exposure. Another live entertainment source was ustin City Limits. This nationally aired luntry music show was taped in Austin uing UT facilities. Names such as The Oak dge Boys, Randy Travis and Kathy Mattea ade appearances on Austin City Limits, .pings were open to spectators on a first j me first served basis. I The University itself provided excellent icilities for entertainment as well. For big |wne concerts such as U2, George Strait and ting, the Frank C. Erwin Center opened its oors. The Erwin Center also hosted Long- orn basketball games and the Harlem rlobetrotters and Sesame Street Live. The Performing Arts Center housed a icert hall that ranked as one of the largest the country. Such touring shows as " Cats " nd " La Cage aux Folles " graced the stage. " he University drama department celebrated :s 50th year and continued its tradition of fine theater with performances of Sam Shep- ard ' s " Buried Child " and a special con- glomeration of jazz and modern dance titled " Mirrors. " The Archer M. Huntington Gallery and the Harry Ransom Center provided art en- thusiasts a chance to view art at its best. The Huntington Gallery hosted faculty shows, doctorate candidate shows, and touring art exhibits while the HRC housed one ot the finest cast collections in the country and an extensive photography exhibit. For natural history buffs there was the Texas Memorial Museum that housed Texas artifacts. Those whose tastes could be satisfied with just popcorn and a movie also had many choices. For those who felt seeing a movie should be an experience, The Arbor provided just that. One of the top-grossing theaters in the country, it exuded a rich, impressive atmosphere to accompany its fine sound sys- tem and first-run movies. The Dobie Twin and Varsity, although short on luxuries, showed less mainstream movies at bargain prices. From art exhibits to concerts to Broadway productions, entertainment abounded in Austin. Everyone ' s taste could be satisfied with minimal amounts of effort. Catering to the University much of the time, Austin activities seldom left students bored. by Sonia White CONTENTS Local Bands 52 Erwin Center Ushers 54 Concert Calendar . . 56 Austin City Limits . . 58 Arts Complex 60 Art Museums 62 Student Productions 64 Movie Theaters . 66 Spotlight Introduction 51 LOCAL BANDS by S. Mychael Ferris tudents keep bands alive In a fertile and diverse atmo- sphere, Austin music expanded and thrived. Students contributed incomparable and inextinguishable applause for live music and in- fluenced the rise and fall of local artists. Throughout the year, Austin ex- perienced the sinking and surfacing of bands and clubs. With the in- evitable closure of the intimate Continental Club and the Southbank, the establishment of Big Mamou arrived a South Congress attraction with an invit- ing Cajun appetite and bookings such as Glass Eye, Wild Seeds and Do Dat. Other enticing locale included Liberty Lunch on Second Street with its weekly reggae offerings, Antones on upper Guadalupe a blues landmark, the Cave Club, Black Cat Lounge, Maggie Maes, Hole in the Wall, Country Palace and, of course, the Texas Tavern and Cactus Cafe. " The Tavern books fantastic shows at good times, " Laura Crawley, liberal arts sophomore, said. " Because the sets start and end earlier than most, there are usually a few valuable hours of nightlife left to spend. It ' s quite convenient. " Not only did the Tavern provide students with live entertainment several nights per week, but it also created supplementary au- diences and University community exposure for local artists. " There are over 60,000 young people in the city; it ' s a very fertile environment in which to build an audience, " John Croslin, guitarist for Reivers, said. " The campus crowd contributes a lot to our success, and it did even more so before the drinking age was raised. " Austin was unsurprisingly impressed by Reivers (formerly Zeitgeist).

In addition, many bands catered to the campus crowd directly and relied on this audience for their primary personage. Mem- bers of Javelin Boot, nine-year veterans of Austin ' s music circuit, enhanced such col- legiate events as Friday Gras and the Tav- ern ' s Halloween festival. With spring tour- ing plans, Javelin Boot was able to introduce their sound to more people. " We ' ve received the majority of our sup- port through the U.T. crowd and our friends there, " Blake Patterson, bassist and alum- nus, said. " Keep the students coming to the dubs! That ' s what keeps the scene alive. " Then there was Bad Mu Goose and the Brothers Grimm intense funk dance band t emerged in the last two years pick-of-the-crop.

" It ' s important that we maintain access we have in Austin to live music; w one of the few cities in the country that claim an outstanding and accessible m circuit!

Excuse me, can you help us find our seats? " This was but one of the many questions asked of an usher at The Frank C. Erwin Jr. Center. Ushering seemed to be the ideal part time job. After ail, ushers at- tended the shows, yet are paid to work them, right? But the glory was offset by crowd control and long hours. Tearing tickets at the door or working a backstage as- signment were two jobs that re- quired an usher ' s full attention. Dealing with large crowds, es- pecially during concerts, could also jeopardize an usher ' s safety. When thousands of people were focused on the performer on stage, safe conduct seemed to be the last thing on their minds. " During a Bryan Adams con- cert, Adams urged the crowd, twice, to rush the stage, " six-year usher Walter Toole, ar- chitecture graduate student, said. Yet it was the usher ' s and security ' s job to hold off the thousands of charging fans and protect the sound equipment. During an Ozzy Osbourne concert, people started ripping the seats out of the mezzanine section and tossing them down onto the floor and arena sections, Toole said. " Once someone threw me down the stairs in the arena during a Def Leppard concert, " two-year usher Laura Tatman said. Tatman would not allow the patron onto the floor because he did not possess a ticket that allowed him floor access, so the patron got mad. The ushers, comprised mostly of students, provided assistance to insure an event ran smoothly and spectators were treated cour- teously. SERVICE certain that Charles Nitschmann WITH A SMILE: Kellye Kimball, studio art sophomore, makes this couple produces the correct tickets. It was this courtesy, combined with a professional staff that made the Erwin Center ushers a unique group. The level of pro- fessionalism was maintained by the way the ushers were contracted, as the Erwin Center was one of the few nationwide arenas to employ a permanent ushering staff. Most arenas recruited a new ushering group for every event, yet at the Erwin Center, some ushers had worked four, five and even six years. This allowed the man- agement to become acquainted with each member of the group on a more personal level. For many reasons, working as an usher could be the perfect job for a student. With a staff of 450 people, an usher was free to work whatever event he wanted. " An usher is not required to work if they don ' t want to, " Dave Lannon, assistant events director, said. " This allows ushers to work around class schedules and select events they ar interested in. " During most events, about 9( ushers were needed. Large concerts required 120 ushers or more. Sign up sheets for concerts were postec on the first day of ticket sales, anc sporting events and banquets wer posted a month before the event. A typical evening for an ushei began at 5:30 p.m. with check-in At 6:15 p.m., ushers attended i briefing which included a rundowr on ticket sales and what type ol crowd to expect. Safety rules anc Erwin Center policy were reiterated followed by work assignments. Work assignments included tear- ing tickets at the door, seating peo- ple inside the arena, providing se- curity around the stage and manning the fire EMS room. Another job outside of working an event was issuing Visa bands before tickets go on sale. The as- signment involved the battle of the scalpers.] " Scalpers have recognized my car and I think Visa bands are going out for an event I and try to be the first at the door, " Tatman I said. " Scalpers have been mad at me before! because they saw my car here but I wasn ' t] issuing Visa bands. " Most concerts ended around 11:15 p.m. I After the Center was cleared of people, a I debriefing discussed problems encountered and how to deal with them. The debriefing also included a well-earned word of appre- ciation for handling thousands of concert-] goers. According to 1987 figures, the Erwin I Center was one of the top 20 grossing, multi- purpose arenas in the country. Dean Justice, Director of the Erwin Center, said the center felt this honor was due, in part, to its usher | staff. 54 Erwin Center Ushers Charles Nitschrrunn COMING AND GOING: Allison Spitzer cuts off a visa band from Cark Smith at an exit door.

" As we still favor Austin artists, we have branched out and have become more diverse. This diversity makes Austin City Limits a popular alter- native to other country music shows. " The show ' s popularity was not solely based on the types of bands featured as the series was also highly regarded for its high quality production. " We don ' t tell the artists where to stand or what to sing. We respect the artists and their craft and fea- ture music which is unchanged, and that makes for a good show, " Menotti said. Students from the College of Communication ' s radio, televi- sion and film department could intern with this nationally- known television series. Austin City Limits chose ap- proximately seven UT students per semester for internships in the areas of public relations and audio and visual production. Interning with a national se- ries was an experience not many universities could offer. UT stu- dents working with Austin City Limits said their experience would be instrumental in get- ting a job. " Not only have I had a good time at the job I do, but there ' s nothing I couldn ' t handle now, " Mary Hawkins, RTF se- nior, said. " This job has taught me not to make mistakes that I might have done in a job out of college. " Dwayne Feuerbacher, RTF senior, said he would like to see himself at KLRU and Austin City Limits one day. " The series is so well produced and everyone loves their job so much, someone would have to die before I could get a job here, " he said. Quietly popular, Austin City Limits strove for quality and innovation rather than glitz and popularity. If Austin City Limits was really the city ' s best kept secret, no one was telling.

You don ' t see productions of this scale anywhere else in town. " Most of the professional companies who performed at UT were used to the most meager of facilities. According to Weisman, the performers were often " overwhelmed and amazed " by what the UT Arts Complex had to offer. Barbara Fisher, Costume Shop Manager, said the Cos- tume Shop was " one of the bet- ter ones in this country " sur- passed only by similar centers in New York and San Francisco. Many UT students who trained at the Arts Complex later found themselves working profession- ally in facilities much less flex- ible or luxurious than those at UT. Fisher said ex-students have told her that the Univer- sity did not " know what it had " in regards to the Arts Complex. There was a danger that the University was truly unmindful of what it had, when early last year, the Arts Complex an- nounced it lacked the funds to continue with scheduled pro- grams. There was talk of can- celing future shows due to lack of funds. Only 40 to 50 percent of the money needed to run the Complex was generated through ticket sales, and until 1988 the Complex had never had an endowment. However, in the face of letting such an incredible facility go unused, the University provided the necessary endowment. The Complex continued with its scheduled 1988 season. Although the University of Texas was famous for many as- pects besides its Art Complex, that facility served to truly make the University unique among the nation ' s colleges. As Fisher said, the Arts Complex was an " incredible facility which the staff and the people of Austin are fortunate to have . . . the money spent on the Complex has proven to be a wonderful in- vestment " .

Dorothy Young, Education and Public ;lations Coordinator, said she believed the Museum was dedicated to the study and Interpretation of the natural and social sci- Ijces, with emphasis on Texas artifacts. " I ink it is a wonderful resource to use for tertainment as well as research, " she said. Of course, dinosaurs did not just walk into e museum. Some exhibitions were either rchased or generously donated. Others ever, were simply lucky finds. Like most ijputable educational institutions, the Texas iemorial Museum consisted of a profes- staff of archaeologists, as well as UT logy students. They searched for such ures as rare birds and butterflies, pre- ius stones, and even the mosasaur, which found near Austin in Onion Creek. One :her museum acquisition was the famous issil tracks of dinosaurs found in a Texas mestone bed and the first of its kind nown to science. Additionally, Texas Memorial Museum housed over four million artifacts relating to these fields which were not displayed, but used solely for research by students and pro- fessors. The museum indeed contributed to the campus through its internationally-known research collections and laboratories, and through its exhibit, education and publi- cations programs. " I really do think there ' s something here for every age, " Young said. Just down the street was a museum of a different kind, the Huntington Art Gallery. In March, the museum celebrated " The Huntington at 25, " commemorating its 25th anniversary with displays of recently selected acquisitions from 1983-1987. One of the ten best university art museums on an American campus, the Hun- tington also grew under the supervision of a professional staff, trained in art history and knowledgable of the art market. Aside from the famed William J. Battle collection of plaster casts, which was the world ' s largest and best pre- served assemblage of Greek and Ro- man sculptures, the institution spe- cifically highlighted 20th century American and Latin American art in the largest collection in the country. Attention not only focused on ancient European art, but medieval, Renais- sance, baroque and rococo styles as well. In the past ten years, the collection increased by 3810 objects. Of those, 1 140 were new works of prints and. drawings, Latin American art, Amer- ican art, European art and the dec- orative arts. The collections were split into two locations on campus: the Art Building at 24th and San Jacinto and the Ransom Center at 21st and Guadalupe. " We have one of the strongest mu- seum educational programs in the country, " David Willard, Public Relations Coordina- tor, said. The Huntington sponsored lec- tures, symposia, films, concerts and other special events relating to its exhibits. Such programs led to the museums recognition as " Museum Education of the Year " as well as numerous national awards. Beneath the surface of show pieces and exhibitions, the primary goals of the mu- seum remained: collect, preserve and protect. " When all is said and done directors and curators have moved on, public programs are over, research and publication have been completed what remains is the very heart and soul of an art museum, the works of art themselves, " Eric McCready said. And though McCready spoke for all museums, Young also had some thoughts about the practical purposes of visiting these institutions. " What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon . . . it ' s free!

From acting, to cos- tume production, to set construction, to innovative special effects, " Space Pandas " offered students on hand ex- perience in their desired field. " UT has a huge department with a broad range of classes that offer spe- cialized skills needed in a technical production such as this, " Holden Hansen, master candidate in Theatre for Children and Youth said. In the few weeks leading up to the first performance, talent, skills and in- ventiveness came together to create the product of first hand learning experiences. November 3 (10 days to opening night): With characters like colorful space pandas, a punk rock planetary ruler and a rapping court jester, the play provided plenty of room for fun and silliness. It ' s a real MTV kind of Cyndee Lauper play geared toward what today ' s kids are watching and exposed to, " Tammy Borin, drama junior said. November 4 (On stage at the Opera Lab for the first time): " Opening night doesn ' t seem as close as it is. I am nervous, though, whether I will grow into my character . . . into what I ' m sup- posed to on time. " Paula Baker, drama pro- duction senior, said. Only now did the actors work with actual props. Most props, however, were still being constructed by the department ' s prop shop. " The University has one of the largest prop shops in the United States, " stage man- ager, Jennifer Nichols, theatre productions senior said. Weeks before the rehearsal process, both the set designer and director decided on a Michael Siravaro BEHOLDEN TO HANSEN. Master candidate, Holden Hansen gives last minute encouragement before showtime, Nov. 12. " Space Pandas " was the drama department ' s 501st student production. " look " in this case, a science fiction, rock and roll fantasy. Next, sketches of the set were drawn up and approved by the director. Then, floor plans and models were made and given to a technical director who engineered construction plans. Technical director Jon Ortega, drama jun- ior, said the work is well worth the effort. " I like the job of ' T.D. ' because I am able to see a show go from just a design and idea all the way up to the stage. " Ortega said. November 9 (first dress rehearsal): " Tech rehearsals are always . . . ' tedious ' is the only word I can think of. But for the actors, it is the most boring time in the world. If it weren ' t for them, however, the show wouldn ' t run smoothly. " Sonja Parks, drama senior said. Like the set designer, the sound designers collaborated with the director early in the semester and are then given a musical score for production use.

But movies were not what they used to be and neither were movie theaters. Shows in Austin, at least some of them, were high-tech, high profile and high budget, and most theaters were showy, elegant, elab- orate and fairly expensive. A few decades ago the big choice for someone wanting to see a movie was what time to go and whether to go to the drive-in or an indoor theater. All that changed, and that change directly affected the Uni- versity populus. College students were one of the largest markets in the movie industry and in a city greatly influenced by UT it was obvious that theater owners and managers payed attention to that market. UT students had many choices in de- ciding on a movie. Location, price, film genre and presentation all factored heavily when students chose this form of en- tertainment. Consequently, theater cir- cuits utilized various methods to attract students and make them feel they were getting the most for their money. The key, according to Pat O ' Donnell, city manager for A-3 Presidio Theater, was to get movies with well-known actors and directors, interesting storylines and large grossing potentials. After that, the theater relied on advertising, presentation quality and its atmosphere to draw people to the theater. The trend in theaters it seemed was to make " movie-going an event rather than just a means of seeing a movie, " O ' Donnell said. Upon entering the Arbor Cinema IV ' s lobby it was obvious what O ' Donnell meant. From the plush car- peting and track lighting on the floors to Michael Monri BUDGET ENTERTAINMENT: The Union Theater offers students a chance to inexpensively and conveniently view popular movies. the clouded ceiling and European village atmosphere, the Arbor exuded show business class. " When you walk into the place, " Amy Foss, marketing freshman, said, " you feel like you ' ve entered a movie set. " A debate raged within movie theater cir- cles. What brought people to a certain the- ater? Most theater operators believed it was the quality of the presentation and the at- mosphere of the theater that made people willing to pay five dollars or more to see a movie. A big question in Austin was whether this philosophy worked for UT ' s population. Traditionally, poor struggling college stu- dents were still one of the largest markets for the theater industry. According to some stu- dents, theaters achieved their goal of bring- ing in the students. " The Arbor is more expensive, but I don ' t mind because of all the extras, " Carol Yoon, business freshman, said. " They have a right to charge more since it ' s a lot nicer and more entertaining. " Seeing a movie at the Arbor IV, i of the top grossing theaters in nation, " is a much more impress? date, " Cindy Tsai, RTF sophomii said. " The atmosphere is genenj better and so is the quality, especiJ the sound, and if my date is paying don ' t mind the extra expense. " For students who did not need| make an impression, did not owil car, or just did not have much mon! there were other options. The Tel Union Theater showcased a wl range of movies including art filij cult films, classics, and an occasiol first-run film as a special sneak pi view. Numerous ' dollar ' theaters gi| students the chance to see some of ' movies they might have missed earl in the year but at a cheaper price. Cl of the better-known alternatil theaters for students was the Do| Twin Theater. " We are one of the few theaters | the country which shows midnighters se nights a week, " Scott Dinger, manager of i Dobie Twin screens, said. " We try to of something to students who tend to have v good and really sophisticated tastes regardi movies. " Again, the theater ' s decor aptly reflect Dobie ' s philosophy. Not your average lobl Dobie overflowed with everything from ' 5 couches to contemporary artwork. Because Dobie showed unique films tl did not always find their way to a first-r theater, the management could charge a tic et price of around $2.50 or $3.50, more line with the student budget. In the age of the VCR some might thi that movie theaters were on the way 01 O ' Donnell and Dinger disagreed, saying tr movies were made for the big screen and r a 13-inch TV as well as citing the soc aspect of going to see a movie. As Brian Moreland, business freshms said, " Without movies, where would y take a date?

A lot of things are accidental . . . but there is a possibility of creating fine art. A hree hallways, two flights of stairs and four well-placed T % questions may get you to the location of the University ' s lone weaving class. Then again, maybe not. But a unique class deserves an unusual setting: an isolated hallway in the annex of the Art Building lined with 20 looms. Each loom was reserved by a student in either 320K, 320L, 330D or 330E. The wooden machines were lined against a half-wall overlooking a foyer. Students wandered L about the " classroom, " looking at each other ' s designs and sharing ideas. Dahlia Cavazos, psychology senior, was weaving a tapestried eye onto the green background of her sampler. Each student ' s first project was to make a sampler piece incorporating weaves such as flossa, chaining and Swedish knots. " A lot of people make gifts; one girl made about 20 scarves for her entire family, " Debbie Netting, art education senior, said. " I don ' t have anybody to make things for, so I decided to do one big project. " She gestured towards the mass of strings stretching the length of the loom that would eventually become a decorative wall hanging. Kathy Mayhall, natural sciences graduate student, had designed a loose weave of thin, white cord that closely resembled lace. The finished product was so stunning that she was repeating the design in a dark blue. " A lot of things that come up are really accidental that is part of the excitement, " Mayhall said. The actual weaving was done in the hallway, due to the bulk of the looms. However, a lot of preparation was required before reaching that stage. The wool, yarn or cloth was first measured and cut in a classroom off from the central corridor. Laura Knots, anthropology senior, was measuring out many skeins of yarn on a five-foot tall wooden frame, wrapping the wool back and forth on protruding arms. " You can never tell how many yards to buy; there are many variables: the tightness of the weave, the texture of the material used, the dimensions of the eventual project, " she said. The next step, stringing the cut pieces onto the loom, was a long and tedious process. " Weaving is not for wimps, " Fisher said. " Things can always go wrong when you have 250 threads to pull through. " After the loom was strung, thread was pulled back and forth through the strings with a hand-held instrument. The interlacing was slow but sure. " By the end of the semester, every student has something that ' s truly incredible and beautiful, " Mayhall said. " There is a possibility, after mastering the basics, to create what is considered fine art. " Throughout the semester much variation came into play: colors, textures, sizes and intricacies. This class provided a mix of students with a chance to carry out their individual ideas. by Donita Robinson ACADEMICS EDITED BY DONITA ROBINSON Academics 69 The mezzanine of the Performing Arts Center was decked with boughs of holly and a festive Christmas tree not the standard setting for a business lunch. Nevertheless, it was where the academic deans of the University held their monthly noon meeting in December. Each month the 1 5 deans of colleges met at an informal luncheon to share information, ex- change ideas and solve problems. On occasion national or state issues were discussed. The meetings were hey at different locations on campus. Items of agenda were collected and compiled by Dr. James Doluisio, senior dean. " There are hundreds of professors yet only 15 of us, " Doluisio, dean of the College of Pharmacy, said. " We like each other ' s company because we ' re 15 people who do the same things. The meetings are excellent because we Feast Fit for a Dea can discuss issues of common concern in a comfortable setting. " The meetings had taken on a new level of responsibility over the years when there were several critical issues that had faculty going one way and administration another, Doluisio said. The tradition of holding informal luncheons started in 1973 under President Stephen H. Spurr. The collegiate heads felt a need for a meeting among themselves, apart from that with the president. The noon gatherings were thus timed to occur before the monthly ad- ministrative meetings with the president. President William Cunningham was dean of the College and Graduate School of Business before his appointment to presidency. Dr. Rob- ert Jeffrey, dean of the College of Commu- nication, said that this helped Cunningham to better understand and appreciate the need for a separate dean assembly. By getting together each month, Max man, dean of the Lyndon B. Johnson School j Public Affairs, said, " We can keep up what ' s happening around campus outside own schools. " The social setting was beneficial to nevl installed deans. Waneen Spirdusio, dean of tl College of Education, said, " [The luncheons] .1 a good induction period for new deans; the ok| and more experienced deans can advise them what or what not to say. " Doluisio added, " No one writes a manual how to be a dean you learn it by experience I Gathering regularly seemed to help in t| sharing of that experience. by Donita Robinson John Foxwonh MEETING OF MINDS: Regular communication among the deans al- lowed for the comparison and collab- oration of academic interests on campus.

Like any artist, the greatest challenge an architecture student faces is learning to trans- form creative ideas into physical realities. To help students meet this challenge, the School of Architecture organized a series of guest lectures that centered on the many ways of approaching this problem. The speakers who were highlighted in the program came from various backgrounds; many were visiting professors while others were au- thors, historians and photographers. The lecture series covered a broad range of topics, from material uses to classical design. This enabled students to listen to a subject specifically interesting to them. Andrew Bennett, architecture junior, said every lecture was a learning experience, but visual aids made the difference between an interesting presentation and one not as inter- esting. " Architecture is very visual; without slides or pictures for back-up it is hard to talk about architecture, " Bennett said. " The weak- ness of some lectures is there is too much talk- itechture . " Guest speakers Paul Kennon and John Rud- quist invited students to visit one of their build- ings under construction in the Austin area. Since the building belonged to 3M, a major American production company, the students were able to see the increasing development in the Austin construction business. By witnessing the ac- tualization of an architect ' s ideas, the students learned the practical importance of architecture. Bennett said that Rudquist, an architect for 3M, typified the role architects often played. A company would often hire an architect to work permanently with them. In this way, every time a new structure was designed the architect made sure his employer ' s needs were filled. According to Steve Templet, architecture jun- ior, professional architects were interesting be- cause their ideas were actually finished and used by the public. " Construction is a sign of suc- cess, " said Templet. " People in the professional world are at the cutting edge. " Bennett said the architect must know a little about everything. " It is important to know about how people think and work. Architecture must be worldly-wise. " Luke Sheridan, assistant to the dean of ar- chitecture, said the lecture series was open to all students, but was aimed specifically at the stu- dents of architecture. He said that these stu- dents had a special interest in what occurs in their field of study. In addition to sponsoring the lecture series, the School of Architecture also presented ex- hibits in Battle Hall. Andy Vernooy, assistant professor of architecture, curated an exhibit con- taining work done by second year students in architecture; however the exhibits were not lim- ited to architectural topics. One exhibit, " Dance of the Universe, " was sponsored by the College of Natural Sciences. Templet said the exhibit blended art with scientific theory. The subject of the exhibit was not necessarily important if it was visually stimulating to the architecture student, Templet said. " Architects have a memory of everything they see. These exhibits add to your visual memory. " The extra events offered by the school gave the students different avenues to look at prob- lems they encountered in their own studies. " I look for things pertaining to what I am doing, " Bennett said. by Greg Perliski Architecture 73 For one week students have the chance to learn directly from the veterans of the marketplace Success Storie At an institution the size of the University and in a college the size of the College of Business Administration it would have been easy for students to think that their education consisted of simply going from class to class. Some activities in the college, such as Business Week, were designed to provide other learning opportunities for students. The Business Week program was initiated so that students could learn outside as well as inside the classroom. The program, which had only one speaker for the whole week when it began, expanded to include more speakers and additional features, but was held at the same time, the last week of February. Business Week 1988, entitled " Window to the Future, " made it possible for professional business people to inform students of their career options in the world of business. The college arranged for one keynote speaker to come to the University each day during the week. The speakers came from all over the United States and also from foreign countries. Among the speakers who participated were Marvin Womack, vice president of Purchases and Quality for Proctor and Gamble, and Wil- liam Dillard, chairman of Dillard ' s Department Stores. Keynote speakers provided students with success stories and with an opportunity to hear about the real business world from experts. These sessions were informational and they also boosted the morale of doubtful business stu- dents, Betty Walsh, business senior and pres- ident of the Business Council said. Scott Slobin, business junior, said, " The speaker inspired me to go out and buy a Wall street Journal , do my best at my job and earn as much money as possible. " All students were urged to attend the talks, and in some courses participation was required. " We encouraged all business faculty members to put this event on their syllabus, and some- times they even test students on the speeches, " Walsh said. Student business organizations also sponsored receptions following these talks to which all University students, faculty, and Austin res- idents were invited to attend. Business Week also involved visiting exec- utives. Prominent speakers holding positions at the president or vice president level in cor- porations came to speak to students in business classes. " This was not free advertising or part of a recruiting procedure, but an educational ex- perience, " Walsh said. About 200 executives participated in order to share their experiences with future business ex- ecutives. " The visiting executive program dur- ing Business Week is often overlooked. This program really has the greatest impact because there is a captured, and usually captivated, audience, " Walsh said. The school also established a career network for Business Week. Business representatives dis- tributed information to students, and offered services to all UT students. " This was not a method of recruiting, but a source of infor- mation and motivation for students, " Walsh said. The Business Council and all other student business organizations played a prominent role in the formation of Business Week 1988. The council helped to recruit speakers and each organization sponsored a reception for a speaker, depending on its area of interest. Students were also responsible for making hotel arrangements and for organizing the re- ceptions. " More people get involved every and the event just gets bigger and better, Walsh said. The college limited the amount of moi spent on Business Week activities to $2,50 " We don ' t pay for any travel expenses because of that we lose some potential speake each year, but if they are really interested helping students, it won ' t make a differen Walsh said. by Glenda Robertson HANGING AROUND: Royce Barton, finance senior, u Cindy Comeaux, business sophomore, put up a poster f upcoming events in the College of Business Administratio 74 Business Administration Michael Monti ONE AMONG MANY: Julie Griffin, business soph- omore, hangs yet another poster advertising speakers and seminars in the College of Business Administraton.

For all of those who looked to the University of Texas Speech and Hearing Center, the search was over. The center provided clinical practice for students, speech and hearing services for the public and a re- search center for faculty. The center was a training site for speech majors who were concentrating in communi- cation disorders. Most students involved with the center were graduate students working to- wards certification, there were also undergrad- uates involved. " All of our students have to earn at least 100 hours of clinical practicum here before they can get another internship, " Dr. Alice Richardson, director of the center, said. In addition to their required hours at the center, students also had to spend time on outside preparation. " When I first started see- ing clients, I put in about six hours of outside work for every hour of therapy, but I learned that I just couldn ' t spend that much time. I managed to cut it down to about two hours, " Becky Doering, a graduate student in speech language pathology, said. The required practicum covered many dif- ferent areas. Among these were observation, participation in faculty research and specialized projects and client therapy. " The clients at the center range from infants to the elderly. The problems of the clients are also of a great variety from minor articulatory problems to very serious hearing defects, " Richardson said. Various professionals served on the faculty of the clinic, including speech pathologists, audi- ologists and a psychologist. Each student ' s train- ing was supervised by one of these faculty members, depending on the specific area of study. After a required amount of practice in one area of study, students rotated to another area with another supervisor. Because of these ro- tations, students also changed clients from one semester to another. The client ' s treatment was, however, continued as long as necessary. " Each client spends two hours a week in therapy and one additional hour with a su- pervisor. Clients do pay for services, but there is financial assistance available, " Richardson said. Students also participated in faculty reseat | projects. There were four different lab areas ! research. These covered areas of study such I hearing science, interactive video lip-readil and speech science. The other area involv) individual student experiments. Additionally, students worked on specializl projects. One such project was the Augmel tative Communication Project, which was c| signed to aid in the communication of thil who were non-vocal by using pictoral aicl Another special program was the Bilir Speech Pathology program.

For those involved, the hours at the cen 1 were sometimes long and hard, but very v uable. " I feel like I live at the center, but i definitely not without its rewards. The exr. rience is really preparing me for a job situation Doering said. The center not only provided a learning e perience for students, but it also provided the with the greater experience of helping others. by Glenda Robertson TESTING, ONE, TWO, THREE: Michele Marion, gn uace student in speech communication, performs a sam hearing test on Susan Saxon, speech communication d j orders junior.

The creation of a centralized study abroad office, announced by President William Cun- ningham in January, marked the first step to- ward a long-awaited expansion of the Uni- versity ' s study abroad programs. In the past, students wishing to study in another country had only three types of pro- grams from which to choose: exchanges offered through the International Office, department- sponsored trips or a wide variety of study op- portunities offered by other schools, rather than by the University. One departmental program, sponsored by the Departments of English and Geography, offered a summer stay at Oxford University. Partici- pants attended classes at Oxford, but were also able to travel or tour on weekends. Cheryl Jones, a drama junior who partic- ipated in the program, attended Shakespeare classes with Oxford teachers and with actors and directors from groups like the Royal Shake- speare Company. She also went to performances by these groups in London and Stratford. " It was invaluable, " Jones said. " Getting on a personal level with the English students was more of a life-learning experience, for me, than a purely academic one. " To provide students with information on overseas programs offered by the University and other schools, the Liberal Arts Council spon- sored the Study Abroad Fair each spring and fall. Tables manned by program representatives displayed brochures on study and work op- portunities. HOME AWAY FROM HOME: St. John ' s College is one of the Cambridge colleges where participants in the Uni- versity of Texas Cambridge Program live and study for two to three weeks However, the Council felt the University ' s study abroad program was insufficient. Council members wanted to see improvements such as a centralized Study Abroad Office, an increase in the number of programs, the development of University-sponsored study abroad programs and an increase in financial support for students 78 Study Abroad interested in studying overseas. " When they asked for a centralized off my understanding was that students wanted have financial aid transferable, " Ivy McQuid study abroad adviser at the International Offi said. According to McQuiddy, having a wide riety of programs available through otl schools rather than through the University coi actually be a benefit. " I think students need have the options and find the programs tl best suit them, " she said, " and I think it woi be doing a disservice to students if we had o one program that they could go on ... or if had 10 programs that they could go on . . . 25 programs that they could go on, and tl couldn ' t do anything else. " Cunningham ' s announcement at the Jan. University Council meeting met the first of i Liberal Arts Council ' s proposals by designati the International Office as the location of i study abroad office. This office would hav full-time staff and provide a central location information on the University ' s programs well as those offered by other universities. There were still several problems with sm abroad that needed to be considered, and sevt of the Liberal Arts Council ' s proposals had yet be met. To this end the Council wished to the creation of a policymaking board to mi further decisions on study abroad ' s future. Still, the creation of a centralized stu abroad office showed a new commitment to i idea of a study abroad program here at i University that would match the programs other world-class schools. by Robin Mayhall SO MANY CHOICES: Debbie Zapata, French freshman, browses in the Study Abroad library at the International Office.

If you had hoped to be done with school and structured education once you received your diploma, you will prob- ably be disappointed. For graduates entering business, engineering, medicine, public affairs and other professional disciplines, at least, that was the message hand- ed down by the directors of the continuing education programs in each of the professional schools. Pursuing the same goals as the University ' s Division of Continuing Education, these pro- grams provided ongoing training and education to individuals working in their respective fields. They were, however, independent of the Uni- versity ' s program and of one another. In fact, the individual programs were completely iso- lated, both financially and academically, even from the graduate and undergraduate programs in their own departments. Nevertheless, the importance of the programs was clear. " The half-life of an engineering de- gree today is about seven years, " Mike Jackson, director of the continuing education program in the College of Engineering, said. " An engineer has to keep learning throughout his professional life in order to keep up. " Jackson and his counterparts in the other departments worked hard this year to meet the needs of such professionals. The College of En- gineering alone offered some 45 conferences and seminars for 1988, ranging from general survey courses like Introduction to LISP (computer language) and Microelectronics Fabrication to highly specialized topics such as Airport Pave- ments and Flood Plain Hydraulics. Jackson had to choose which courses from previous years to keep in the curriculum and Micheal Lyon STOP ME IF YOU ' VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE: Andre KJein-Szanto asks a question about dermal car- cinogenesis at a Texas system conference. which ones to drop. " We have a local group of about 20 to 30 industrial contacts who help us assess the demands of the engineering com- munity, " he said, adding, " Because the Uni- versity allots no money to these programs, each course effectively has to pay for itself. " The engineering program as a whole was designed to target two distinct groups of pro- fessionals. Survey courses were geared toward the person who found himself changing from one area of specialization to another, or perhaps entering the workplace for the first time. The more specialized courses were intended for the individual who either needed to know more about a particular area in his field or wanted to learn of the latest advances in his field. In order to stay in business, Jackson had to make sure the entire program was kept as up-to- date and varied as possible. " We ' re constai looking for opportunities to diversify. Ab one-third of our courses each year are new, " said. The 13 courses just added included s subjects as Management of Hazardous Wa Water Demand Forecasting, and Technique Nuclear Radiation Shield Analysis. In addition to gaining new knowledge i skills from the various courses, participants the program could expect an additional bent the chance to meet other people in their fii Jackson said, " Interaction within each grou| important.

" Although the professional continuing e cation programs primarily served the Austir, Texas community, some, like the engineer program, attracted participants from all over nation. " We have now a course on offshore oil p forms that ' s known to be about the best in country, " Jackson said. " In fact, we ' re j about the only ones who offer this course. " indicated that a third of the people he ser were from out of state. Most of these programs were begun in 1950s or 1960s, and they consistently grew size and scope over the years. Thomas Hatfield, dean of the Division Continuing Education, said, " People should leave college with the mistaken notion t they ' ve finished. In fact, they ' re just gett started.

Ademas, imagine que tiene dificultades incluso para leer. Translation: Imagine not being able to read this because you do not know the language. Additionally, imagine having difficulty just be- ing able to read. The students in the Bilingual Special Education Program in the College of Education were trained to help children in this situation. " The certificate that undergraduates receive upon completion of their training is a generic one which enables them to work with children who have learning disabilities or mild emotional problems, " Dr. Alba Ortiz, associate professor of special education and director of the Bilingual Special Education Program, said. In addition to undergraduate training, the college also provided master ' s and doctorate training. The courses and experiences which students confronted in their training were aimed at preparing them to work with mildly hand- icapped students who were not able to function efficiently in English. This training included learning the methodology of teaching English to someone who was not proficient and observing in a bilingual special education class. Students also got an opportunity to tutor in their fields and do student teaching. " I really find it interesting. I ' m doing volunteer work at a junior high school and by applying the things that I ' ve learned in classes, I can see more clearly what is right and wrong and where mistakes are being made. I ' m using everything that I ' ve learned. The concepts aren ' t abstract anymore, they are very concrete to me, " Trecia Long, a secondary education senior concentrating in Spanish and special education, said. The students, aside from taking the required courses for their degrees, also attended seminars three times a semester. The subject of the sem- inars varied. Some featured guest speakers who gave students information on specific fields within bilingual special education. Others fea- tured group activities to actually involve stu- dents in the methodologies they were learning. The first requirement for students who en- rolled in the program was that they be bilingual. " Our program deals primarily with Spanish- speaking students, so those who enroll must pass a Spanish proficiency exam, " Ortiz said. " Our greatest problem is finding students who are really bilingual. The recruitment pool is primarily Hispanic, and is an area to which we pay great attention. " Ortiz said that the graduates of the program had very high career prospects for the future. " Our interest in this area is that the population is changing. In Texas the minority has become the majority. Spanish speakers are the fastest growing population. Our graduates have very marketable skills.

Kreisle, professor of me- anical engineering and the director of the ogram, called the course " the capstone of the lents ' education in which they use every- ing they have learned up to this point. " Kreisle began the program in 1974 with the ea of using industry as the source of design blems to give students experience in real job nations. " Our main objective is to give the idents confidence and develop their abilities decision-making, information-gathering, king with other people and selling their leas, " Kreisle said. About two months before the start of a mester, industrial companies such as IBM and racor, Inc. were contacted by mail and asked to id descriptions of projects they would be terested in sponsoring. During the first week classes, students organized into teams of three four and chose a team leader. A project was assigned to each team by a computer igram which tried to give each team its erred project. During the second week, teams contacted their company sponsors by way of two world- wide telephones. Plans were then made to fly the students out for a plant site visit to see the actual project setting and to discuss the project with an engineer representing the sponsoring company. Upon their return, each team wrote a prob- lem statement and a design proposal which was mailed to their sponsor. This was to ensure a dear understanding between both team and company of what was desired. From this point, it was up to the teams to contact their sponsors if problems arose. Stu- dents did receive instruction in the lecture ses- sions which met twice a week, but these dealt mainly with general topics concerning the de- sign process. Dr. Steven P. Nichols, lecturer in mechanical engineering, said, " Naturally, there are too many different projects to discuss each one in class. " Instead, he said, the lectures covered such subjects as safety and liability, organization and management, and ethics. Help on specific problems was available to students through meetings with teaching as- sistants twice a week and through faculty ad- visors. A group ' s progress was also monitored by the submittal of periodic reports throughout the semester. Otherwise, the students were on their own to perform the work which their project required. Finally, the course culminated with an oral report given by each team to representatives from their sponsor company. This report took place on campus. A written report was also required and was sent to the company about a week before the oral report. According to Kreisle, about 98 percent of the projects were used by the industries with no changes, which indicated a very high success rate. He went on to say that the American Board of Accreditation for Engineering and Technical Colleges (ABET) had indicated that the De- partment of Mechanical Engineering had one of the top senior design programs in the country. " The course emphasizes innovation and cre- ativity, " Kreisle said. Kreisle added that the fresh approach taken by students on their first real design problem offered more of an attraction to companies. It was quite common for job offers to result from the association of students with their sponsors. The ME senior design program appeared to be a very effective means of breaking down the division between the academic and working worlds.

This piece, Ifich premiered March 4, was performed by 0 ' Jazz Ensemble and the Dance Repertory Bieatre. Some well-known graduates of the University re featured in the celebration as well, aturday night [Mar. 5] Barbara Conrad is ming in from New York to give a recital, " J Francis, associate dean of the College of Fine ts, said. Conrad performed as a mezzo so- ano with the Metropolitan Opera. One especially unique contribution to the tivities was made by a group led by Per- ming Arts Center Assistant Events Manager .phne Hodges. This group put together a ilt commemorating the history of the College Fine Arts. " That quilt was made by faculty, faculty ves, staff, alumni who live here in town, and a real clever history of the college. It ' s very " ferent. It has things that a lot of students nowdays don ' t even know about. They used to have the Texas bells that led the Longhorn Band on, and then there ' s the drama theatre and the opera lab all of that is in that quilt, " Francis said. The reason for the celebration was, of course, this colorful history. The history of the college actually began in 1937. A special committee of the University faculty recommended the es- tablishment of a separate college of fine arts to fulfill the need for classes in art, music and drama. The Texas legislature took up a bill to create the college that same year, and on April 29, 1937, the bill passed. The amount of $64,000 was appropriated for the development of the University of Texas College of Fine Arts. Dr. E. William Doty was appointed dean of Frank Ordonez PIECES OF THE PAST: Mavis Dillon, Alizy Zaced and Jane Spivey work together on a quilt commemorating the golden anniversary of the College of Fine Arts, one of the more picturesque contributions to the celebration. the new college in March, 1938. According to Dory ' s written history of the college, " At this point, [Doty] faced the employment of a fac- ulty, the writing of a catalogue, purchase of basic equipment for art and music instruction, preparation of a budget, and organization of curricula and class schedules, in addition to making all the other necessary arrangements for the first class of the new college which was to arrive in September. " Doty accomplished these daunting tasks and until 1973 ran a College of Fine Arts whose three departments not only worked individually but also cooperated on such projects as Marco Millions, a production presented in the college ' s first year. Many former students of the University ' s College of Fine Arts attained national fame in their fields. Broadway actor Tommy Tune, movie star Rip Torn and costume designer Joe Tompkins (Coal Miner ' s Daughter) all attended the University. " One very few people think about is Robert Benton, who was a graduate of the Art Department, and he ' s the one who won the Oscar for Kramer vs. Kramer , " Francis said. The college itself held a high national rank- ing. Francis said of the fine arts program, " I think nationally it ' s considered in the top 10, 15 at least, and in some areas it ' s in the top two and three. " Apparent in the College of Fine Arts ' an- niversary celebration was a hope for 50 more years of such excellence. by Robin Mayhall Fine Arts 87 The sky is the limit when originating and organizing programs for graduate studies New Horizons Scientific and academic endeavors rely heavily on research to increase available knowledge. As new discoveries are made, fields of study grow and change, creating the need for a greater number of specialized programs in universities. The Department of Graduate Studies met this need by proposing new doctoral programs for the University and by guiding those proposals through the approval process. Dr. William S. Livingston, vice president and dean of Graduate Studies, said that often de- velopments in research evolved which combined the efforts of several different disciplines. " At one time, for example, there were the separate fields of chemistry, biology and botany. Re- cently, though, the field of molecular biology has come about which cuts across all three, " Livingston said. He also said that as a field developed, the faculty of a particular college or department would see a need for continuing studies on the graduate level. They would then contact the Department of Graduate Studies to propose either a master ' s or doctorate program in the field. This would set in motion the approval process. The Department of Home Economics began a doctoral program in the Division of Child Development in the fall of 1987. Dr. Hal Grotevant, the division head, said that before a proposal for the program could be written a core of interested faculty had to be formed to support the program and to help establish its position in the University. " This degree cuts across psychology, edu- cational psychology, education, sociology, speech communication and social work, " Grote- vant said. For this reason, it was important to secure the interest of the other colleges involved. The fac- ulty then had to decide on the goals and scope of the program, propose new courses if needed and establish entrance requirements for those seek- ing the degree. This preliminary phase ended with the submittal of the written proposal to the Department of Graduate Studies. Dr. Audrey Slate, assistant dean of the Office of Graduate Studies, helped faculty members with their proposals. In explaining the rest of the process, she said that next the vice president and dean of Graduate Studies decided if all the requirements were met. If so, the proposal was then sent to the Academic Committee of the Graduate Assembly which would review it and bring it to the next assembly meeting. Slate explained that the Graduate Assembly was a 28-member legislative body which met four times a year to vote on various proposals. " If the Assembly votes to recommend the proposal, a summary of what was approved is then circulated among the faculty of the De- partment of Graduate Studies by the dean, " Slate said. Time was allowed for faculty protests. If there were none, the dean sent the proposal to the president. If the president approved, it was sent to the vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. " An external review by experts from other universities also takes place at some point in the approval process, " Slate said. Upon a favorable review, the proposal was then sent to the System Board of Regents for a vote. From the Board of Regents, the proposal went to the last step of the approval process, the State Coordinating Board. Here, the new pro- gram had to pass two main criteria. The boa had to decide that there was a need for t program and that there was no duplication another program elsewhere in the state. At t same time, the board would determine the o of the program and make sure that it w economically feasible at the time. If the proposed program satisfied these i quirements and was approved by the board, t new doctoral program was installed at the Ui versity. Livingston said it was very important that t University be able to keep up with the chanj that occur in the various fields of research. T lengthy approval process was necessary to ensi that the new doctoral program was relevant the time. This in turn, helped to ensure t relevance of the education offered by the Ui versify to the world outside of academia. by Mike Barry 88 Graduate Studies fat to Joe w i KB) fc A PROGRAM IS BORN: Dr. George B.

Graduate Studies 89 ERVETRACKIN An interdisciplinary team of researchers use genetic analysis to explore physical and psychological processes Imagine a world free of disease. Imagine a world in which aging takes place so slowly that the average human life span might be 120 to 140 years. Humankind has probably always dreamed of such a world, but only in recent years have these incredible advances seemed within reach. A group of professors from the colleges of Pharmacy, Engineering and Natural Sciences, among others, formed the Institute for Neu- rological Sciences Research. Their work, togeth- er with that of similar groups across the country, was expected to help eradicate most of the diseases that plague humanity and to extend the human life span. Dr. Creed Abell, director of the Institute ' s cellular and molecular program, explained that the first step towards accomplishing these goals was to map parts of the structure of DNA, the blueprint for the body ' s chemistry. " There has been considerable discussion at the national level about sequencing the entire human genome (DNA), " Abell said. " We would then know the genes responsible for every function and dysfunction in man. " He also said, however, that since DNA is made up of some 3.5 billion pieces, called base pairs, a great deal of time and money would have to be spent on such a project. Abell predicted that the scientific community would eventually settle on an alternate approach. " What we ' ll probably end up doing is to se- quence the genome at regular intervals to get some landmarks. " He indicated that, as an initial step, only 20 or 40 million base pairs would be identified. The second step in the process, the phase in which Abell was most interested, would be to label those parts of the genome which leave a person open to various diseases. Abell stressed the importance that recently developed tech- niques in recombinant DNA and cloning had in his work. " We can apply these techniques to various proteins in the nervous system, cloning enzymes which interact with neurotransmit- ters. " By creating these molecules in the desire shapes and sizes and observing where they ai each themselves to the DNA molecule, Abe had hoped to " mark " the sites responsible ft the vast majority of known diseases. He felt th with this information, scientists would ult mately be able to make adjustments in th genome structure which would eliminate SU) ceptibility to such afflictions as Alzheimer ' s di ease, Parkinson ' s disease and schizophrenia. Chemical markers were also important to tr. work of Dr. Steven W. Leslie, director of tr Institute. His goal was to pinpoint the ur derlying cellular mechanism behind aging. " Why do people age? In large part, it because the brain grows old, and that cut tributes to the aging of the body, " Leslie said One of Leslie ' s first projects in this connectio was to be a study of the effects of alcohol on tr nervous system. " Alcohol has detrimental effec on the nervous system and aids in the same kin of tissue degeneration as seen in aging, " he sail It was expected that once the sites of tr degeneration have been identified, the process aging would be better understood, and thereto! methods of slowing the process would follow. The doctors were reluctant to estimate ho ' quickly human ailments could be conquerei But they were agreed that phenomenal progre was in the offing. by William Boyce 90 Institute for Neurological Sciences Research HOW DRUGS AFFECT YOUR BRAIN: Jody Dildy, teaching assistant in pharmacy and toxicology, adds chem- icals to brain tissue samples.

CROWDED HOUSE: Students discover new friends during freshlaw orientation. 92 School of Law he Welcome Mat Student ' s participation rejuvenates freshlaw orientation program by - adding personal touch In the back of the law administrative offices in vnes Hall was a small inauspicious office. In room, better suited for storing office sup- law students Russ Sullivan and Ann Gill vised an impressive change in school policy: : reorganization of the School of Law ' s fresh- orientation program. During the summer and fall terms of 1985 both Sullivan and Gill endured an orientation program for incoming freshman law students. For them it was a program in need of change. " No upperclassman were involved, just fac- ulty and staff. I felt we could welcome students in a better way. " Gill said. Sullivan had the same impression about the orientation process. " My goal became to involve students more, " he said. In the fall of 1986 the two formed the Student Recruitment and Orientation Commit- tee, designed to encourage student involvement in welcoming new students. Gill decided that the purpose of a student- sponsored orientation program would be to find students interested in the study of law and introduce them to the School of Law. This required setting up new activities as well as adjusting ones already existing. Orientation programs of the past were centered around academic life at the University. There was a need for a " student life orien- tation, " Sullivan said. " We needed a way to get rid of the ' me versus the system ' feeling, " he said. Gill and Sullivan set up topic seminars cov- ering areas like married life and minority issues. IS BRENHAM REALLY HEAVEN?: Bruce Wieden, third-year law student, and Professor Mike Sturley, assistant professor in the School of Law, enjoy ice cream and con- versation during an orientation mixer. They also mixed second and third year students with the freshman to create a more interactive spirit, Sullivan said. In the summer and fall of 1986, 30 to 40 students volunteered to help the administration greet incoming freshmen. " We said, ' Glad you ' re here! ' " Sullivan said. " The school became a much happier place. " By the spring of 1987 things became easier as the number of volunteers increased, Gill said. In order to do something different in the spring, the Student Orientation Committee formed Spring Prospectus Day. Unlike the fall program that invited all students interested in law studies, the Spring Prospectus Day invited only those students admitted to the University ' s School of Law. " The committee members tried to specifically sell the Austin campus rather than law school in general, as they do in the fall, " Sullivan said. " More than 70 people volunteered to host 200 guests, as it became a cool thing to do among law students, " Gill said. " Law and fun came together. " Sul livan said the committee had eyes on the future, with plans for a big brother big sister program to continue increasing that " personal touch.

Though people came from all over the world to study and teach at the University of Texas, Soviet emigre Yuri Druzhnikov, who began work in January as a professor in the College of Liberal Arts, was truly unique. Druzhnikov spent his first college years at the Philological Institute of Riga University in the Soviet Union. He studied Russian classical lit- erature, Slavic language and history. By grad- uation, he was attending the Second Moscow, also known as the Moscow State Phililogical Institute. After his schooling was completed, Druzhnikov held many different positions. He was the principal of a high school and the director of seminars for young writers. His Soviet journalistic career included writing for a Moscovian newspaper, publishing chil- dren ' s literature and penning various plays and short stories. After almost 20 years of writing, Druzhnikov received the Golden Pen Award from the Soviet Journalistic Union. The award recognized his book In Quest of Archemides, a book of essays about parents and upbringing problems with their children. But Druzhnikov ' s Soviet career ended in 1977 when he applied to emigrate from the Soviet Union. He had gradually become dis- enchanted with some contradictions of Soviet policy which tended to glorify many ideals of the Stalin regime, even though Stalin himself had long been discredited. He chose to immigrate to the U.S. because " I had both relatives and friends in the U.S., and the country guaranteed rights to its citizens. " Druzhnikov was removed from the Soviet Writers Union after six years of membership. His literary works were banned and he could no longer be published. " Obedient Soviet writers love their country and do not want to emigrate, " he said. " I became a non-person. " It would be 10 years before Druzhnikov was Robert Kirkham Yuri Druzhnikov finally allowed to leave the country. In the meantime he resorted to ghostwriting to support his wife and child. After two years, he began to smuggle his writing to the West. After seven more years had passed, the KGB began to threaten Druzhnikov in order to stop his " anti- Soviet " behavior. However, Mikhail Gorbachev ' s entrance on the political scene along with his doctrine of " glasnost, " or openness, indicated a change in the nation that would affect Druzhnikov ' s sit- uation. His American friends lobbied fi Druzhnikov, leading 83 representatives and sei ators to write Gorbachev asking for his en igration permit. Druzhnikov was granted permission to leai in 1987. He and his family traveled first ' Vienna in September and in January arrived i Austin. He accepted an offer to teach at U which he had received before he immigrated. As a professor at the University, Druzhnikc taught two classes: a creative writing class fi cusing on children ' s literature and a Russu culture class. In the writing class, the professor led ti students in discussions of children ' s literatur " He presented the material in a way which w; easy to understand. After starting the discussioi he gave us free reign to explore our own ideas. Curtis Bludworth, English sophomore, said. The contemporary Soviet culture clai presented Russian literature, language and sc ciety. " Two-thirds of the time we spend le turing and discussing, and one-third of the tirr we spend answering questions, " Druzhnikc said. " The cultures and politics are so differei everything. It is sometimes hard to explai the realities; it takes time. " Druzhnikov seemed to be satisfied with h life in Austin. " The teaching process is ev more than I expected, " he said.

Students concerned with retaining knowledge of past generations learn methods of library preservation Saving Memorie The deterioration of storage materials has long been a problem for those interested in preserving information. Older books begin to crumble because of sulfuric acid. Magnetic au- dio and videotapes become distorted when their plastic bases begin to deteriorate. Old movies made on celluloid film tend to shrink and crumble due to nitric acid. " There ' s more and more information to be stored on more and more different media, and the problem of making sure that that infor- mation is kept somewhere is rapidly becoming a much more serious problem, " Ronald E. Wyl- lys, dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, said. A new course offered by the Graduate School of Library and Information Science taught this important aspect of library and archive ad- ministration: the preservation of storage media. " Conservation of Archival and Library Ma- terials, " taught by David Gracy, professor of library and information science, provided stu- dents who hope to beco me library or archive administrators with an overview of the issue of conservation. Covered in the course were such topics as why storage media deteriorate, how the decay can be prevented or repaired, and how a library administrator can provide a good con- servation program for a collection. The course looked at the reasons for physical decay of storage materials, such as the presence of acid in paper from chemical processing and John Foxwonh SEE AND SEW: Conservator Bruce Levy utilizes the wooden sewing frame in a conservation laboratory to restore the back of a book by sewing it with unbleached Irish linen. from air pollution. It covered ways of preventing these problems or repairing them to some ex- tent, like the housing of collections in envi- ronments of low temperature and low humidity. The course dealt with the overall organization of a conservation program and the issue of disaster prevention and preparedness: how to deal with, for example, water leaking from a broken pipe. The course did not, however, deal as much with the technical aspects of treating deteri- oration as with the idea of conservation as a whole. " We ' re aiming not so much to tr;| people to actually repair damaged material, I to educate people as to how to provide the m I effective preservation for all holdings that unilcr their care, " Gracy said. Students also discussed the problem of kno I ing when conservation is truly necessary. " course the final question ... is how mul conservation is enough. Where is the line 1 1 tween doing everything possible to save l| item, and as little as necessary to maintain 1 1 meaning communicated by its present comj tion, " Gracy said. He felt that the medium | sometimes more meaningful in its aged, orig form than a photocopy of it might be. The issue of conservation is such a broad c I that no one course could possibly deal with I entirely. Gracy ' s course attempted to give si] dents an overall understanding of the impi I tance of conservation and its general framewc I rather than its technical details. Still, studei gained a knowledge of how vital archival a library preservation is in saving informati both from the past and from our time. Wyllys said of the course, " It ' s really aim I at trying to deal with the problems of insuri that information that is being stored will stored as long as it is humanly possible to keep I stored.

Research in color shows how shades affect us Analyzing Colo What effect does color have on the work- place? This was just one of the questions researched by Dr. Nancy Kwallek, assistant pro- fessor of home economics and head of the Division of Interior Design. In her research, Kwallek studied the effect color had on the worker ' s mood and productivity in different colored environments. The study was set in three office spaces in the primary colors of blue and red, and neutral white as a control. The participants in the study, half men and half women, consisted of three age groups: 18 to 25, 26 to 35, and 36 years and older. The subjects were asked to type business forms and then either moved to a different colored room or remained in the original room to repeat the task. The data compiled from the participants re- vealed that room color did affect the perfor- mance of the women in the study. " Women made significantly more errors when moved from the blue room to the red room than did men, " Kwallek said. In the final mood questionnaire, subjects re- ported that they felt more anxious in the red room and depressed in the blue room. Kwallek planned further studies using dif- ferent colors and office tasks with subjects from the Department of Psychology. " Color is a field that has not had enough consistent research, " Kwallek said. For example, she found that the original study concluding that red is exciting and blue is depressing was done over forty years ago. " The study used three to five handicapped people and was conducted without using sci- entific research methods. " Kwallek ' s research used 300 participants and consistent research methods. " By using a true environment an office the research has more accurate data than, say, swatches of fabric or paint, " she said. " Through this research a data base of information can be built. " The National Aeronautics and Space Ad- ministration expressed an interest in using Kwallek ' s findings for the interior of a planned space capsule. The craft was to orbit the earth on 90-day missions. After contacting NASA, Kwallek visited the Johnson Space Center in Houston to consult with their scientists and submitted her proposal for the colors to be used based on her findings. " [The] scientists are very interested in psychological response to color; we hope to investigate NASA as a future source of funding, " she said. Kwallek was also interested in getting fund- SEEING RED: Sitting in the experimental red room.

" According to Denise McGinty, assistant cordinator for the Learning Skills Center, the answer was test anxiety, a strong fear resulting in an inability to cope with the stressful situation at hand. It was most often ( CJ v f ' r {2) a conditioned reponse, meaning that similar stressful situations had occurred before and the ability to cope had been hindered. Test anxiety could also cause physical reactions such as shaky hands, nausea, or headaches, she said. " I can ' t do this. I studied it and now I can ' t do it. I ' m blowing my whole grade ... " Such negative inner thoughts provoked these situ- ations, creating more anxiety and stress. This made it even harder to concentrate, McGinty said. " Where can I go to get help? " The Learning Skills Center in Jester Center had the resources to help students battling stress. Over 12,000 students used the center ' s staff and materials every year for the problem of test anxiety as well as other student-related problems. The coun- selors at the center met and talked with anyone who wanted help, trying to pinpoint why the student had test anxiety and to find ways to deal with the problem. Often, McGinty said, a student was anxious PULLING A LATE NIGHTER: As midterms and finals approach, many students take advantage of the Under- graduate Library.

" The Center offered a four to six week self-paced program to help students with stress and test anxiety. This course contained a packet of ex- ercises to determine the situations that provoked the anxiety, questionnaires on feelings and tips for improving mental attitudes during stressful situations. By learning what caused these feel- ings students could adjust their attitude toward the situation and begin to improve.

" According to Stn Sanity and Survival by Dr. Frank Richardsc associate professor of educational psycholon the key to coping with stress was to chan negative thinking.

Wartime nurses were also remembered in the collection through a display of nurse uniforms, medals and pins. A large part of the display was the memorabilia of Margaret Ann Raffa, a re- tired Air Force colonel. Dr. Crowder ' s most prized materials were her older textbooks and documents, most of which were donated by organizations like the Texas Nurses Association, the Occupational Health Nurses Association and the Texas League for Nursing, as well as by prominent Texas and national nurses. She had the original mem- bership ledger from the Texas Nurses Asso- ciation and several photographs of prominent nurses of the past.

Those who found their way to the phar- maceutics division of the college did not have an easy road ahead of them. In addition to course work, students were encouraged by faculty members to participate in research work, which required several hours each week in the lab- oratory. This research concentrated on either conven- tional drug delivery systems, such as tablets or capsules, or novel drug delivery systems, such as transdermal patch systems. Dr. James McGinity, division head of phar- maceutics and professor of pharmacy. Dr. Ro- land Bodmeir, assistant professor of pharmacy, were faculty members who offered students an opportunity to work on pharmaceutics research. " This experience answers many questions for undergraduates, " McGinity said. " As a result of working with a professor in a specific area, the student may decide that research is not for him or her. " Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows also worked on pharmaceutics research in the laboratories. The University made a special commitment to developing the graduate program in phar- maceutics and encouraging graduate students to participate in research. " Graduate students have a big decision when they choose a topic on which to work. Usually by the second semester, a research topic has been chosen and progress has been made, " McGinity said. " Right now I ' m working with acrylic poly- mers that are used in tableting. I am testing the tablets for various physical properties, such as strength, brittleness and bonding, " Mark Schultz, graduate student in pharmacy, said. Students conducted their research using some of the most modern laboratory equipment in a U.S. university. " We have close to $1 million worth of equipment both analytical and manufacturing. We are continually adding and updating our equipment in order to stay ahead of the competition, " McGinity said. Some graduate students spent at least one summer of their doctorate program in a phar- maceutics company either in the United States or in Europe. After a student ' s research on a specific topic was completed, the results were presented both at national and international meetings. Annually, 25-30 papers involving research results were presented at these meetings and at pharmaceutical companies. McGinity said, " This not only advances the reputation of the C ollege of Pharmacy, but also the reputation of the University. " Manufacturing companies also occasionally asked for feedback on their products from stu- dents using them in research. In March, seven research patents were either issued or pending, and several applications were being made for foreign patents. " Other tech- nologies are under investigation, and I can fore- see more patent applications in the future, " McGinity said.

Even though there were many available treatments for cancer in 1987, about 25,500 people died of cancer in Texas. It seemed that many Texans simply did not know where to obtain infor- mation about cancer and this probably pre- vented the early detection of many cases which may have been curable. The School of Public Affairs helped to combat this ignorance problem through its involvement in the Texas Cancer Network Program Project. The Texas Cancer Network Program was started by the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs in June of 1987 at the request of the Texas Cancer Council, a state agency es- tablished by the Legislature to reduce the num- ber of cancer-related deaths in Texas. The Coun- cil contacted Dr. Lonna Milburn of the LBJ School of Public Affairs about starting a pro- gram to inform the Texas public of cancer prevention. " The TCC representatives told me their goal was to cut cancer deaths in Texas in half by the year 2000, " Milburn said. The jjroject was the focus of a graduate course taught by Milburn in the School of Public Affairs. The 14 graduate students enrolled in this course were responsible for the actual im- plementation of the project ' s activities. The Network consisted of six county councils in central Texas whose purpose was to inform communities about reducing the risk of cancer and obtaining the treatments available to cancer victims. Milburn said, " The goal of the Texas Cancer Network is to bring together providers of cancer services with those who need cancer services. " The first step in accomplishing this goal was to conduct a survey of central Texas commu- nities to find out what the public knew about cancer and which groups needed information. The questions on the survey were developed through meetings between the Center for Com- munity Research and the members of the Net- work project at the School of Public Affairs. The survey yielded some surprising results. " It showed that only 42 percent of the people surveyed knew where to get cancer services, " Milburn said. " We found that rural areas were especially ignorant. " Although chapters of the American Cancer Society existed in most communities, the study showed that only 28 percent of those surveyed would turn to them for information on cancer. A major problem in fighting cancer, then, seemed to be making the public aware of the help that was available. With this in mind, the Network members at the LBJ School of Public Affairs set up and organized councils in Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Limestone and McLennan counties. It was the responsibility of the graduate students in the Network to visit these counties to recruit people interested in working with the local council. Greg Ferland, public affairs graduate student, said, " We actually get out and knock on dooi to get support. " Ferland said that student would contact community service groups such a the Senior Services Center. Students also worked in the county council- organizing health fairs and screening program and setting up cancer awareness booths. In thes ways, the students helped the county councils t implement cancer education and preventio programs for their communities and organiz collaborative efforts between health care pro Do you believe that cancer is sometimes cureable?

A group of Austin social service agencies wanted to prevent the elderly from being overlooked in this manner. In November of 1986, these agencies took action. Coordinating their services on behalf of older adults and their families, they formed Austin Groups for the Elderly, or AGE. The AGE building housed the organizations which made available services such as coun- seling, daycare for the elderly and family out- reach programs, along with other benefits. Interns from the University gained experience in their fields by working throughout these agencies. Among these were students from the UT School of Social Work. The graduate students in social work who were involved at the center localized their efforts in either clinical direct practice or adminis- tration and planning. However, students were encouraged to gain extra experience by working outside their particular areas of concentration. " Exposure to a network of human services is a major objective of social work, " Eunice Garcia, field specialist in social work, said. In order to complete the master ' s program, students must have accumulated 990 hours of practicum in an internship program. First-year students participated in academic classes as well as an internship program. Second-year students worked full-time at internships of their choice. Students working at the AGE center were often involved in the work of more than one agency. In 1987, five interns held positions with agencies at AGE, and one intern also worked with an agency that was not affiliated. " As a group, many of the interns work together on projects for different agencies, " Cathy Staul de Hey, graduate student in social work, said. " AGE tries to bring together a group of agencies which cater to a certain group of the population. It is a good place for students who are concentrating in administration and plan- ning to get experience because of all the different agencies involved, " de Hey said. Because the AGE project was relatively new, administrators were still experimenting with different approaches to problems. This offered students some unique benefits. " This program is one of the very first of its kind, and we are very excited about it. It gives interns good exposure and a futuristic outlook, " Garcia said. One of the greatest benefits, from a learning viewpoint, was the lack of regimentation usually found in older programs. The center ' s senior staff did not attempt to control the efforts of the interns. " The supervisors are there not only to oversee, but also to help them link what they have learned in the classroom with what they experience with the clients, " Garcia said. The AGE administration planned changes to improve the efficiency of the program in the future. " Eventually we want to have a central coordinating mechanism in place at AGE so that we can direct people to specific agencies for specific services, " Garcia said. Participation in the AGE program not only provided interns with realistic experiences but also offered valuable attention to the needs ; problems of Austin ' s elderly. De Hey " Society must realize that there are differer among older people, and that there are m services necessary for their health and ha| ness.

" Ironically, in the shadow of this lofty pement, scholastic dishonesty in University oms increasingly worried both admin- ation and students. Approximately 50 students were formally ac- of cheating during the fall semester. This iber did not include students with whom I professors dealt personally or those who were discovered. Increasing concern for the continuing prob- of academic dishonesty prompted a group students to form Students for Scholastic In- Irity.

Students for Academic Integrity planned var- ious activities to inform students of the extent of the problem. One was writing informative pam- phlets to be distributed to incoming freshmen during the summer orientation process. Other activities were held to increase the group ' s visibility around campus. The members sold t-shirts espousing the academic excellence of the University in an effort to support ac- ademic honesty. The organization used the money to fund projects such as printing posters to hang around campus. In order to help organize the campus pro- gram, Assistant Dean of Students Gage Paine served as faculty advisor for the students. Through this connection with her office the students were able to receive money in order to launch their fund-raising efforts. Schweizer said the group considered plans to work for an honor code, a measure that had combatted cheating with some success at other universities. For example, at the University of Virginia the honor code prescribed students to report any unfair activities that they observed. Failure to report would result in the same pu- nitive actions used against those who actually cheated. Tom Smith, alumnus of Rice University and auditor of Russian classes at the University, said that the honor code employed at Rice was " very effective. " It entailed writing " On my honor I have neither given nor received aid " at the top of each test or paper. However, Schweizer said he felt that an honor code would not be effective. " Due to the size and diversity of the University, it just seems too impractical, " he said. Active support of professors would be needed to carry out any form of action. " Too many of the professors either don ' t care or are too trust- ing. Unfortunately the students are betraying the trust of their professors, " Schneier said. Group member Karen Starns, business jun- ior, said the organization ' s work helped faculty members to feel they had student support in carrying out penalties against those caught cheating. In order to secure a long-term effort against cheating, members set up a selective process to recruit new members. Through applications and interviews the group hoped to establish a net- work lasting far beyond their stay at the Uni- versity. by Greg Perliski Academic Integrity 111 Chancellor Hans Mark Chairman Jack S. Blanton Senior Vice Chairman Shannon H. Ratliff Vice Chairman William F. Roden Regents RaeSt; From student radio to added optional fees, the UT System Regents routinely faced issues that had far-reaching effects on si and school policies. Two of the issues that dominated the 1987-88 were the toughening of admission requirements for entering freshmen a tuition increases in the Graduate School of Business and the Sch Law. The Board began the 1987-88 year with the election of three n officers on June 11. Former Chairman Jess Hay and the other rege unanimously elected Jack S. Blanton as chairman, Shannon H. Ratliff senior vice chairman and William F. Roden as vice chairman. Blanton of Houston was the chief executive officer of Scurlock Company and a graduate of the University, receiving his Bachelor of A degree in 1947 and his law degree in 1950. He held the title Distinguished Alumnus and president of the Ex-Students ' Association Ratliff, a partner in the Austin law firm McGinnis, Lockridge a Kilgore, received his B.A. and law degree from the University.

Although students asked more questions than before, their reaction was generally rable, Paver said. Tie Board unanimously voted to raise tuition in both the Graduate of Business and the School of Law. In the Graduate School of ess the tuition doubled to $32 per semester hour. Out-of-state tuition increased from $120 to $150. The school accepted these changes without any protests registered by the students. In the School of Law the changes called for an increase from $48 per semes ter hour to $75 in 1988-89 and up to $90 in 1989-90. Non- resident tuition also increased from $150 first to $165 and then to $180 in 1989-90. Law students were visibly upset by the vote, which was called with very little warning. Mary Wynn, second-year law student, said, " The tuition for the law school is already in- credibly disproportionate to that of the rest of the Uni- versity. The recent hike will make it even more difficult for the self-supporting students to continue to pay for school. " The law school increases were denounced by the Student Sen- 1989 90 ate 3 ' - em 8 to harsh and lack- ing student input.

Who kept the University of Texas running smoothly on a day-to-day basis? Who coor- dinated and oversaw the business dealings, the intercollegiate sports, the cultural events, the public relations, the research institutes and the student affairs of our community? You probably never even thought about it, but President Cunningham ' s tightly-run staff of six vice presidents handled all this and more. Working individually, yet constantly conferring with one another, they efficiently ran the mas- sive administrative machinery of this city within a city. For a city it was. Serving the needs of well over 50,000 students, faculty and staff, the University generated its own electric power, administered its own postal system, its own shuttle b us network and its own police force while also managing its own housing system, health center and even an auto clinic. " None of us can understand how big the place is, " Vice President for Business Affairs Charles Franklin said. " There are research centers and projects here I ' ll never know about. " In point of fact, however, most of the Uni- versity ' s business eventually found its way to Franklin ' s office. Because he was in charge of accounting, purchasing and budgets, his area of responsibility was in some sense the most com- prehensive of all the vice presidents. " All pro- grams have personnel and budgets and con- tracts; that ' s all Business Affairs, " Franklin said. Franklin ' s office also operated with remark- able efficiency most on-campus services, in- cluding the shuttle bus program and the util- ities. " We generate all the steam and electricity we use here. We save about $1 million a year over what we would pay if we bought our power from the City of Austin.

Livingston ' s area of responsiblity included University of Texas Press publishing house and all the campus libraries. " The research of grad- uate students should be published. That is one function, perhaps the basic or even sole function, of a graduate program, " he said. Executive Vice President and Provost Gerhard Fonken also considered research pro- grams his primary responsibility. His office ran many of the University ' s research facilities, in- cluding the McDonald Observatory, the Bureau of Economic Geology, the Center for Energy Studies and the Marine Science Institute. Fonken was also responsible for the Center for Teaching Effectiveness. " It is important to en- sure that the University faculty stay active and well-informed, so they will be more capable of training graduates and undergraduates, " he said. Funding for all this activity was a chief con- cern of Vice President for Development and University Relations Shirley Bird Perry. Al- luding to the ailing Texas economy, she in- dicated that efforts to solicit private financial support had been redoubled. Perry used the UT News and Information V Service and the university publications depl ment, both managed by her office, to reach to people and corporations in Texas. " We h|| a responsibility to inform the public about goings-on, " she said, adding, " How much 1 1 understand is related to how much they s I port.

Approximately 150 students were sitting on chairs, couches and the floor, attentive as the president announced, " This is your show. " The occasion was the Fall 1987 Student Tea with the President, organized by the Dean of Students Office. It was only one example of how Cunningham stayed current on student issues. " Dr. Cunningham has seen many more stu- dents than his predecessors, " Mary Mayes, ex- ecutive assistant to the dean of students, said. His direct contacts with students each semester in- cluded teas, open forums hosted by campus or- ganizations, pep rallies and group dinners. " I have worked very hard to maintain ex- tensive and meaningful interaction with stu- dents, " Cunningham said. " This is an important priority for me. " Tea for Two Hundred Approximately 200 undergraduate and grad- uate students were randomly selected by a com- puter to be invited to each coffee; 50-60 stu- dents attended. " Most average students just don ' t get the opportunity to meet the president, and this provides for that chance, " Mayes said. The student teas with the president were initiated during President Stephen Spurr ' s ad- ministration and had continued through two presidents to Cunningham. Mayes, coordinator of the functions, said, " Each president gives the coffee a flavor from their orientation. " The meeting was designed to help the pres- ident stay in contact with what goes on in the student body. " Cunningham primarily answers students ' questions, while Presidents Flawn and Rogers asked questions of the students, " Mayes said. " I have continued the student teas because I have found them to be a very interesting and important avenue of communication with stu- dents, " Cunningham said. Cunningham initiated special coffees which were organized once a year for minority stu- dents. These invitations were also randomly selected from the black and Mexican- American student populations. Questions From the Floor Each semester var- ious student organiza- tions, such as the Cab- inet of College Councils and the Of- fice of the Ombuds- man, sponsored stu- dent forums with the president. Admission was open to any stu- dent, providing an- John Fo other opportunity to ask questions of the pres- ident. " The questions range from apartheid to why there are not enough courses in zoology or enough racquetball courts, " Cunningham said. Direct Line to Students Cunningham reconstituted the President ' s Advisory Council, comprised of 20 student leaders across campus. " I sought the advice and counsel of the Dean of Students Office, " Cun- ningham said, " and they said that these were the organizations which had a broad repre- sentation across the University. " The group met with Cunningham approx- imately every six weeks. " When we have hac particular student problem on campus, I ha invited the advisory group to meet, brouj them up-to-date and sought their advice a counsel in a very swift manner, " Cunninghi said.

When you ' re used to sitting on a plateau of excellence, why take a step down? OMING tli 9 Texas football returns to prominence . . . - T " he groundwork was laid for another disappointing football J season in 1987-88. The Longhorns were off to an ugly 0-2 start, struggling to adjust to a new coaching system. Ad- ditionally, like a dark cloud, the memory of recent un- satisfactory seasons lingered over Memorial Stadium. It would be premature to give up on any team after just two games, but still, this was the University of Texas, where gridiron losses ranked right below dentists ' drills. The Horns rebounded with two wins, over Oregon State and Rice, but these were to be expected. Ironically, the game that turned around the feelings of students, alumni, and even players, was a loss a loss to those annoying Sooners who enjoy rubbing salt in Longhorn wounds every chance they get. Yes, Texas left the Cotton Bowl a 44-9 loser on the Scoreboard, but that ' s where the losing stopped. The game was expected to be ugly Oklahoma rolled into the contest a 31 -point favorite. Longhorn students traveled to Dallas, but not with confident attitudes. Many donned shirts saying " I ' m just here for the party " hardly an expected attitude of Texas supporters. Admittedly, Oklahoma won, and won big. A 35-point victory margin was satisfactory enough for Boomer Sooners to dance in the streets of " Big D " Saturday night, but there were no " Burnt Orange Blues " in Dallas either. A strong first half against the nation ' s No. 1 team was just what Texas needed. The Horns actually led 3-0 after one quarter, and the halftime deficit was only seven points, 13-6. The game shifted in OU ' s favor after a Stafford interception on the second half s opening drive, but the Horns posted an effort strong enough to have fans saying, " If only we had ... " David McWilliams ' bunch never looked back. Texas won five of its final seven games, including an impressive Bluebonnet Bowl victory over Pittsburgh. Gridiron magic in Austin was back. Or had it ever left at all? When excellence is the standard, it ' s easy to fall below expectations. A few off years were not enough to quash decades of Longhorn pride. A unique winning aura existed around Texas athletics nowhere was that more apparent than on the football field, in front of 70,000 pairs of supportive eyes. Off season recruiting successes were found in 1988. Top-notch athletes again decided on Texas as their future home. The groundwork was laid for the upcoming season, but this time the foundation consisted of dominance and not disappointment. After all, when you ' re used to sitting on a plateau of excellence, why take a step down? by John Pilati ATHLETICS EDITED BY JOHN PILATI Athletics 121 R OUGH START PREPARES HORNS Texas goes a dissappointing 1- 3 against non-conference opponents. Texas ' 1987 non-conference schedule includ- ed three nationally ranked teams with Auburn as the season opener and BYU as the home opener. The games were testing grounds for new head coach David McWilliams ' team. " To tell you the truth, I was worried going into the season, " sophomore offensive tackle Stan Thomas said. " We had a whole new system new coaches and new techniques. But I was glad we had those first two non-conference games to rebuild. " A highly-touted Auburn defensive front dominated the Horns ' offensive line in the sea- son opener, as senior quarterback Bret Stafford completed only 16 passes out of 34 attempts. Texas ' most explosive weapon, junior tailback Eric Metcalf, was confined to 79 rushing yards in the Horns ' 31-3 losing effort. " 1 believe that the Auburn game was the only one we should have lost, " Thomas said. " We were implementing a new system and they were a nationally ranked team. " The loss to Auburn did not dampen spirits as the Horns met BYU, Sept. 12. Leading 7-0 in the first half, Texas looked to be on its way to victory, but UT wasted opportunities for touch- downs during the second and third quarters. Sophomore kicker Wayne Clements was forced to kick a 46-yard field goal as the first half ran out. In addition, halfway through the third quarter Metcalf fumbled on BYU ' s 16, which led to a Cougar touchdown. Midway through the fourth quarter Coach David McWilliams substituted junior quarter- back Shannon Kelley for an injured Stafford. With one minute to play, Kelley handed off to junior tailback Darron Morris for a touchdown, yet only in vain as BYU won, 22-17. Against Oregon State, Sept. 26, McWilliams steered the Longhorn offense away from its previous passing strategy and established the running game as Texas gained 334 on the ground. Metcalf scored on a 5 3 -yard run on the Longhorns ' third offensive play to make it 7-0 Texas. He finished with a career-best 145 yards on 20 carries. Texas went on to rout the Beavers, 61-16. With the Oregon State victory and a con- ference win over Rice under their belts, the Longhorns focused their attentions on the un- defeated Oklahoma Sooners, Oct. 10. Texas kept a 3-0 lead through the first quar- ter. Not even two OU touchdowns in the second quarter could calm the Longhorn spirit in the Cotton Bowl. UT was actually holding its own at the half, even though the Sooners led 13-6. After opening the third quarter with a 54- yard drive to OU ' s 14-yard line, the Longhorns had a chance to tie up the game. That chance was stifled when Sooner cornerback Ricky Dix- on intercepted Stafford ' s pass deep in Okla- homa territory. The game shifted after Dixon ' s interception. " We almost had them on that play, " Thom- as said. " They were about to fold and give up, but the turnovers killed us. " A staunch OU offensive effort eventually wore down the Texas defense. During the third quarter the sight of OU fullback Lydell Carr dragging UT senior cornerback Tony Griffin the final 15 yards of his 3 2 -yard touchdown run symbolized the end of a Texas upset bid. The Sooners finished 44-9 winners in a game that truly was much closer than the final numbers indicated. " After the loss to Auburn I did not think we could beat OU because I considered OU to be a better team than Auburn, " Thomas said. " But we played better than the score indicated. We were playing 100% better, except for the turn- overs. " The Longhorns finished 1987 non-conference play with a 1-3 record. by Beverly Mullins 122 Football ubum 3-31 Brighiim You ii 7 7-22 Oregon State 6 -J6 Rice gpi 4 _v, Oklahoma Wj f.

Football 123 REGAINING POWER IN swc A 5-2 Southwest Conference mark means first-year success for David McWilliams. After finishing 4-4 in conference and 5-6 overall last season, the Texas Longhorns needed a fresh start and a new outlook. Enter 1987 and David McWilliams. Although the Horns failed to achieve a Cotton Bowl berth, they stayed in the hunt until the end and along the way rewrote several Longhorn and Southwest Con- ference marks. The Horns ' SWC slate started, Oct. 4, at home against the Rice Owls. Texas ' ground game led the charge as junior running back Darron Morris scored three rushing touchdowns of 58, 34 and 38 yards. On the second possesion of the third quarter, freshman running back Chris Samuels sprinted 57 yards for his first collegiate touchdown on only his fifth carry as a Longhorn. Junior tailback Eric Metcalfs 159 rushing yards as well as Norris ' 123-yard output com- bined to push Texas ' offensive totals to 539 yards the best in 10 years. Texas easily won this conference opener, 45-26. When they rode into Little Rock, Oct. 17, for a showdown with the 15th-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks, the underdog Horns knew this conference game would not be as easily won. Senior safety John Hagy gave the Horns an early edge though when he intercepted and returned the ball 50 yards to Arkansas ' 3-yard line. Redshirt freshman tailback Eric Williams took it from there and scored as the first quarter ended. Sophomore kicker Wayne Clements booted the extra point for a 7-0 Horns lead. The Razorbacks owned the second quarter though as they racked up 222 yards rushing. Late in the quarter the Hogs were poised to score on Texas ' 29 yard line, but the stubborn Texas defense buckled up and forced the Hogs into a 50-yard field goal attempt. The Hogs held on to a 14-7 lead at the half. The defense kept their rigid composure in the second half as they held Arkansas to 66 yards of total offense. Unfortunately Texas ' offense sput- tered also as a Clements field goal was the only score of the quarter, closing the gap to 14-10. With less than six minutes to play in the fourth, McWilliams decided to go for a critical fourth down and three. Arkansas ' pressure was too much though as senior quarterback Bret Stafford ' s pass, intended for Jorrick Battle , was batted away. The Hogs took over and looked to run the clock out, but the Texas defense stiff- ened and allowed only one first down. With 1 :48 remaining Stafford led the Horns on " The Drive. " With 14 seconds left and a fourth and ten situation on the Arkansas 32, Stafford lofted a pressure-packed 19-yard com- pletion to Metcalf for a first down. Two plays later Stafford stepped back and fired an 18-yard touchdown strike to sophomore wide receiver Tony Jones as time expired and 54,902 Ar- kansas fans stared in disbelief at the final score: Texas 16, Arkansas 14. The fire of this victory burned strong in the Horns as the Texas Tech Red Raiders rolled into Memorial Stadium on Oct. 31, in front of a burnt orange crowd of 74,984 the largest of the season. A blocked punt threatened Texas ' hopes early as Tech recovered in the endzone and led 7-0 before their offense even touched the ball. Stafford, fresh off a Longhorn record of 21 completions in the Arkansas game, marched Texas 80 yards and climaxed the drive with a 33-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Gabriel Johnson. Five minutes later Hagy intercepted a pass on the Arkansas 19 and scored his second in- terception return for a touchdown and UT ' s fourth overall for the year. A 52-yard Clements field goal with no time left gave Texas a 17-13 lead at the half, but the best was yet to come. In a third quarter that rolled like a Longhorn highlight film, the defense shut down the con- ference leading Tech offense to a mere ten yards and two first downs. The Longhorn offense outscored the Red Raiders, 24-0, in the quarter en route to total domination.

On a third and one at Tech ' s 19, the tailback swept wide right, then abruptly pulled up and lofted a touchdown toss to Jones. The Halloween massacre continued as junior linebacker Lee Brockman, who made 1 2 tackles to lead the Horns for the second consecutive game, sacked Tech ' s quarterback on the Red Raider three, forcing them to punt from the end zone. Hagy caught the line drive kick and ran the ball in 33 yards for his second touchdown of the day. Texas ' ground game rolled for the rest of the game as Norris racked up 110 yards on 14 carries while the Longhorns cruised to a 41-27 victory. The high scoring continued as the Horns ventured into the Astrodome for a shootout with the Houston Cougars, Nov. 7. The Horns outplayed the Coogs in every facet of the game except the final score. Texas ' total offense was a bulging 60 1 yards and the offensive machine rolled in the first half as Stafford completed 15 of 23 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns. Jones caught four of these for 1 54 yards and two touchdowns. After Metcalf hit freshman split end Keith Cash for his second halfback touchdown pass of the season to give UT a 34-20 lead, Houston started their flurry of scoring. After returning an NCAA record four interceptions for touchdowns and taking advantage of eight Longhorn turn- overs, the Cougars pulled away with a 60-40 victory and their first win over Texas in the Astrodome. The Longhorns returned to Memorial Sta- dium, Nov. 14, for a critical SWC game with the Texas Christian Horned Frogs. After setting all-time UT marks against Houston with seven kickoff returns for 129 yards, Metcalf followed with the best game of his career. His 36 carries for 206 yards were the second and ninth best respectively in UT history, while his 280 all- purpose yards were the third best in school history. Brockman ' s 43-yard interception return for a touchdown was the fifth such score for the Longhorns in 1987 and enabled the Horns to hold off the Frogs, 24-21. The Baylor Bears charged into Memorial Sta- dium the following weekend looking for their first victory in Austin since 1951. They didn ' t find it as Texas never trailed during the course of the game. Texas ' staunch defense overpow- ered the Bears, holding them to 30 yards rush- ing and three third down conversions, and ad- ding a total of seven sacks plus an interception by defensive back Fred Stromile. Metcalf rushed for 131 yards on 27 carries and scored three touchdowns including a 59- yard punt return in the second quarter. In the second half, touchdowns by Stafford and John- son completed the scoring as the Horns closed their 1987 home slate with a 34-16 win. " I think the key was putting pressure on the quarterback. The defensive line, especially the tackles, played really well against the run. That forced them to pass and we really never let them have time, " senior defensive end Thomas Al- dridge said. While the Baylor game solidified Texas ' hopes of a bowl bid, the Orange and White went to Kyle Field on Thanksgiving night look- ing for a Cotton Bowl berth. The Texas A M Aggies o nce again stood between them and a date in Dallas on New Year ' s Day. A first quarter Clements field goal gave Texas the early lead and a 50-yard Metcalf touchdown burst completed Texas ' scoring in the first half as the Horns stayed even with the Aggies, 10- 10. Clements added another field goal in the third quarter, but ten fourth quarter points by the Aggies were too much for the Horns as A M won, 20-13, and captured the Southwest Conference title. Texas finished the regular season 5-2 in con- ference and 6-5 overall and for the second time in three years accepted a bid to the Bluebonnet Bowl. According to junior defensive tackle Steve Llewellyn, the coaching change mirrored the change in players ' attitudes for the 1987 season. " Coach Me Williams brought a winning at- titude to the team and brought fun into the game. I think we showed that this year. We have a lot of people with a lot of experience returning next year and we have nowhere to go but up, " Llewellyn said. by John Picacio 126 Football Gary Kan I CLEARING THE WAY: Freshman offensive guard C McMillan floors a Baylor Bear defensive lineman to creati opening for junior fullback Darron Norris.

IMS F IRST-YEAR COACHING SUCCESS David McWilliams returns to Austin, where he says he belonged all along. Longhorn head football coach David McWil- liams led Texas to a 7-5 record in 1987, in- cluding an upset over favored Pittsburgh in the Bluebonnet Bowl. The following is from an interview between Cactus sports editor John Pi- la ti and McWtlliams one month after the season ' s conclusion: 1. How would you evaluate the Long- horns ' 1987 season? " I think we probably accomplished more than we might have at the start of the season. As you know, there were a lot of question marks and a lot of places we weren ' t sure about po- sition-wise. Then you lose the first two games and I think we showed a lot of character when we were losing because nobody panicked. That said a lot of our coaches and players. They stayed positive. The fact that the coaches didn ' t get down or lose their enthusiasm carried over to the players. We had a rash of injuries and those guys who came in did a real good job for us. It was a real fun season. One of the big things we wanted to do was finish the season strong, which Texas hadn ' t done in a while. We ended up with a great bowl victory and so I think we ' re ahead of where we thought we might be. " 2. What areas provided you with the most pleasant surprises last year? " The leadership our seniors gave us was a key area. We didn ' t have very many seniors but they continued to pound our young guys. You know those kids are going to follow that lead. The way the team pulled together was pleasing too. We had some games with a lot of turnovers and there ' s no more discouraging way to lose than that. The team got tighter though and elim- inated the turnovers. They played as hard as they could at all times and never gave up. " 3. What are Texas ' main areas of con- cern for 1988? " Like every year, you lose people and I think the major area of concern is in the defensive backfield. We lost three starters in the secondary so I ' d say that ' s the major area. Also, we start over at quarterback. Anytime you do that, there ' s the question not so much of ability, but of leadership in the position. " 4. Why was 1988 such a strong recruit- ing year? " For one, there was a lot of excitement about Texas coming back. We were on TV several times and even when we lost, the effort was positive. We showed we could be a good team. Finishing out the season strong helped too. Recruiting coach James Blackwood did a good job getting our coaches on the right track. We got a good early start and some early com- mitments so I think that helped us too. " 5. Is there a specific level you require to gauge your team ' s success? " I ' ve never had a point to where I feel satisfied. If we do well, I tell the team. If we play poorly, I let them know that too. All I try to do is convey the idea that if better is possible, then good is not enough. I really don ' t set levels of wins. We want to win every game but no one game makes a season. " 6. What makes coaching at the Uni- versity of Texas different? " Probably being such a large university with such a diverse campus. And with so many alumni, we deal with people from all over the world. Anytime you deal with that many peo- ple, you get a lot of input. You ' re working with a conglomerate of all types of people and you wear a lot of different hats. Also, the expec- tations of the program here are different. I understood them coming in, and hopefully I was a part of them previously. I ' m proud to be where people expect so much. I wouldn ' t want to be somewhere where it doesn ' t matter. There ' s no other job I ' d take in the country but at the University of Texas. This has been my home for 26 years.

After a winning season and an upset win in Ihe Bluebonnet Bowl against Pittsburgh, the onghorns felt they were right where they be- nged in the Southwest Conference: at the top. Early recruiting successes indicated that many nigh school seniors felt the same way. As of Jan. 27, Texas had 14 commitments from highly- touted seniors, including Paul Moriarity, a blue- chip offensive tackle from Conroe McCullough, and quarterback Peter Gardere from Houston e, one of the state ' s top 25 high school srospects. UT recruiting coordinator James Blackwood aid that recruiting is a never-ending process. iBlackwood explained that his nine coaching (assistants begin to speak with prospects face-to- Iface in December. This enables the players to be [rated physically and emotionally. " You ' ll find players that say they weigh 240 [pounds when they really never even weighed 220, " Blackwood said. After preliminary meetings with coaches, the recruits choose where they will make their of- ficial visits. Each student is allowed to visit up to five schools during January and February. The visits enable recruits to see various schools ' programs and to familiarize themselves with the coaching philosophy of each staff. For some students though, the atmosphere of each school off the field is just as important as the on- field heroics. " Texas is the place to be because the spirit of Texas is like nowhere else. They have high academics, the best facilities, the excitement and social opportunities of a large campus, " fresh- man offensive lineman Chad McMillan, who was recruited in 1987 by Blackwood, said. " There ' s a sense of pride playing for the school that really represents the state of Texas. " McMillan also said that the Longhorns ' rep- by Kris Crenwelge utation was evident even at other schools. " At Notre Dame, (head football coach Lou) Holtz said that if I didn ' t want to play for Notre Dame, then I should go to Texas. They will always be the best program in the Southwest Conference, " McMillan said. Head football coach David Me Williams plays an integral role in recruiting activity as well. McMillan said that McWilliams ' honesty as- sisted him in making his decision to come to Texas. " He is so open and caring, a great man. I really respect him. Coach McWilliams told me straight out what to expect and he made no promises he could not fulfill, " McMillan said. McWilliams ' attitude, combined with a re- juvenated program and a big bowl win in Hous- ton on New Year ' s Eve, enabled the Longhorns to again dominate in recruiting top-notch pros- pects.

Football Recruiting 133 CONTINUED DOMINATION IN THE SOUTHWEST CONFERENCE Another undefeated conference effort paves the way for post-season success. The Lady Longhorn Volleyball team proved that last year ' s NCAA Final Four appearance was no fluke as they once again dominated Southwest Conference play and reached this year ' s Final Four. A young team, with only two returning start- ers and three seniors, the Horns fared well in their season opener against Southwest Texas State 15-3, 15-5, 15-11. Southwest Missouri State, Memphis State and Kansas, other op- ponents on the grueling four-match, five-day road trip, also fell to Texas domination by a combined game total of 9- 1 . Returning to the Frank C. Erwin Center, Sept. 12, Texas faced the defending national champion and No. 1 Pacific for two matches. After taking Pacific to the limit in the first match 8-15, 15-11, 8-15, 15-10, 12-15, the second match proved to be a straight game victory for Pacific 13-15, 9-15, 12-15. " At times we played very well and at other times we played very poorly, " head coach Mick Haley said. " We just need to continue to work on the rest of our defense. " The next stumbling block was No. 6 ranked UCLA. The Lady Longhorns could not over- come the strong serving attack of the Bruins and lost the first match 9-15, 13-15, 3-15. With adjustments that included a more potent Texas serve, the Horns pushed the second match to four games, but UCLA still prevailed 11-15, 18-16, 12-15, 7-15. Coming into SWC play 5-4 after a month of facing No. 1 Pacific, No. 14 Pepperdine and No. 6 UCLA, the Horns were able to regroup amid conference rumors of instability and weak- ness. They opened the SWC season with a win over Baylor 15-3, 16-14, 15-7. " Winning the conference means a lot to us. That ' s our first goal of the season, " senior outside attacker Angie Albrecht said. With that goal in mind, Texas dispelled all doubts by proceeding to build a 33 conference game winning streak and cruising to their sixth by Watson Fung consecutive Southwest Conference tide. Despite a long, late season road trip whic included losses to new No. 1 Hawaii and No. 10 Illinois, the Lady Longhorns complied a 22-9 overall record and a perfect 10-0 mark in the conference. Seeded No. 1 in the region, Texas | marched to the Final Four with wins over Flor- ida, Florida State and Kentucky. Only in the Final Four match against Stanford did the con- ference champs falter by a score of 15-11, 12- 15, 15-8,6-15, 5-15. Although the Lady Longhorns were denied the national crown after a second Final Four appearance, the players ' accomplishments were not overlooked as junior middle blocker Dawn Davenport, junior setter Sue Schelfout, senior middle blocker Karen Kramer and Albrecht received all-conference billing. In addition, Kramer, who broke several UT volleyball records, ended her collegiate career with All- American status and was named the Southwest Conference Player of the Year.

Years of success follow Longhorn coach Haley Trace the development of most collegiate coaches and you ' ll find deep-rooted experience in their sport. Coaching success represents the ultimate goal of a lifetime of commitment. In Mick Haley ' s case though, his 273-74-1 life- time coaching record has its roots in an accident. While playing basketball at Ball State Uni- versity in Indiana, Haley threw a temper tan- trum which, strangely enough, started him on his way toward volleyball. " The coach got irritated with me and started lowering my grade from an A to a B to a C, so I went out for volleyball to show him, " Haley said. Haley ' s interest and skill in the sport grew and the setter position became his. " I could get the ball right away, and I liked the idea of seeing if I could be perfect at putting the ball in certain spots. " After several conference championships at BSU, and later, stints with the U.S. national men ' s training team, Haley began his coaching career. Soon, Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Mich., became just as famous for its breakfast cereals as for its men ' s and women ' s volleyball teams, which under Haley ' s guidance won several conference titles. A veteran of coaching circles for 1 5 seasons, including seven at Texas, Haley said he wel- comes the recent changes in the game. " There have been tremendous changes in the rules and the quality of the athletes playing the game. It ' s becoming a very significant sport in this country. It ' s getting good ratings on tel- evision, " Haley said, " and that ' s a good in- dicator that the sport is going to be around for a while. " On the 1987 Longhorns, Haley said he was most impressed with the team ' s total deter- mination and preparation toward winning. " They ' re probably the best group of indi- viduals from top to bottom who ' ve been as conscientious about their training, skills and eating habits. It ' s been, quite frankly, the most fun team I ' ve had. I ' m probably being spoiled because they take good care of their coach and each other, " Haley said. by Watson Fung Gary Kanadjian Conference Volleyball 137 MARCHING TO FINAL FOUR Back-to-back Final Foi seasons give Longho championship feeling. After reaching the NCAA Final Four for the first time ever in 1986, the Lady Longhorn volleyball team made a return visit in 1987 with the hope of going one step further, the national championship match. Texas eased through the conference schedule, losing only one game in winning the SWC title. According to junior middle blocker Dawn Dav- enport though, the Horns did not quite match their pre-season expectations as they, " fell short of our goal of going undefeated during the regular season by losing a game in the Texas Tech match. " Entering the NCAA tournament, the Lady Longhorns hoped that the difficulty of the reg- ular season schedule would help them return to the Final Four. " We had a lot of growing up to do during the regular season. Playing teams like UCLA and Pacific well told us that we could play with any team in the Final Four, " Davenport said. In the Longhorns ' first round victory over Florida State, Texas fell behind early in the match but fought back to win in three straight games, 15-6, 15-11, 15-9 and advance to the South Regional. " We were down at the first of the Florida State game, but we knew we were the better team and we started to play aggressively and dominated. It helps to start off in the playoffs strong but it would have helped if we were challenged more, " Davenport said. For key freshmen reserve Quandalyn Harrell, the adjustment to college volleyball and the playof fs was a learning experience. " As we got further along in the season, I began to relax and play like I know I can. Things got easier as I received more exposure to the college game, " Harrell said. In the South Regional, Texas whipped Flor- ida 15-9, 15-4, 15-3 before defeating Kentucky in the regional final in four games, 9-15, 15-12, 15-9, 15-4. After coasting by the Gators, the Horns found things a little more difficult in the Ken- tucky game, which assured Texas of their 13th straight season of 25 or more victories. " Kentucky took us by suprise, " Davenport said. " Luckily we have a close team and we were embarrassed by the way we were playing. We absolutely refused to lose at home and not go to the Final Four. " According to Davenport, the Horns made the trip to Indianapolis, Indiana with a different by Todd Wills attitude than the 1986 Final Four team. " Last year we were really excited and just gli to be in the Final Four. This year ' s team was! different because we had been here before and I we took it more seriously and really wanted to [ win it all, " Davenport said. In the semifinal match against Stanford, the I Horns took the second and fourth games, but I that victory in the second game proved costly as I team leader and senior middle blocker Karen | Kramer injured her ankle. " Karen ' s ankle injury occurred at a moment I when we were on a roll and it slowed us down I because we were worried about her, " Harrell I said. " We were determined to win and we gave our all for Karen. " But the Horns could not hold back the I Cardinals who won the final game and the match, 11-15, 15-12,8-15, 15-6, 15-5. The match ended the college career of | Kramer, but for the younger players the trip to Indiana provided a winning incentive for com- ing years. " The younger players like Quandalyn and Dagmara contributed so much and the trip to the Final Four should help them grow, " Dav- enport said.

Ending the season at number 18, the mens cross country team finished in the top 20 nationally for the fourth consecutive year. As an added bonus, all but one of the seven Longhorn com- petitors will return for next season. Junior Harry Green gave Texas its first in- dividual title since 1973 with a time of 23:29.26 in the men ' s five mile race at the Southwest Conference cross country meet in Fayetteville, Ark. The team entered the Ar- kansas meet with an 11 -meet winning streak and took third place overall. Green, a two-time All-American, went on to a third place finish in the NCAA national championship meet, Nov. 23. This was Texas ' best individual finish since 1956 when Walter McNew finished first. Green joined McNew as the only other two-time All-American in the history of UT cross-country. Green said he was as pleased with his team ' s finish as with his individual finish in 1987. " Sure, I was happy with my season. The team was fairly young this year which meant we had a lot of improving to do, " Green said. " We did improve, and I think next year we ' re going to have a fantastic season. " This was the first year since 1982 that the Longhorns had to go without Patrick Seng and Joseph Chelelgo, two world-class runners from Kenya who concluded outstanding careers in the fall of 1986. Instead, the Horns used the year to rebuild, giving experience to the freshmen and sophomores. Sophomore Shaun Barnes said the team ' s inexperience this year should prove beneficial for coming seasons. " At the beginning, people were saying we had nothing to compete with, and were de- pending on Harry, but we made a good showing at the NCAA meet in Virginia, " Barnes said. " We surprised a lot of people and they began to take notice. Next year we ' re coming back with more experience, and we ' ll be a team to contend with. We ' ll be shooting for the top five in the nation. " He said that team unity was especially strong this season as the majority of the team came from Texas. by Laura Munoz TRAFFIC JAM: Junior Harry Green moves toward the lead and an ultimate win at the NCAA District VI Meet, held at Georgetown, Nov. 14.

For the Lady Longhorns basketball team, the 1987-88 campaign began with a home game against the USSR National Team. The contest with Texas was the Soviets ' final game of an eight-game swing through the United States. The Soviets held off a late furious Longhorn rally to post a 90-88 victory. After trailing by as much as 18 points, the Horns battled back to cut the margin to seven points with just over one minute remaining. Texas tied the Soviets at 88 with 17 seconds left, but a basket by Irina Gerlipz with six seconds remaining proved to be the difference. " It was two different ball games. We were terribly impatient, " Coach Jody Conradt said. " It was mostly individual play on the offensive end in the first half. " The Horns ' pre-conference schedule was one of the nation ' s most difficult. Texas faced de- fending national champion Tennessee, NCAA semi-finalist Long Beach State and highly- regarded Auburn in addition to the Soviets, one of the top teams in international competition. Texas met 13 of the previous year ' s 40 NCAA Tournament qualifiers during the season. From the first practice early in the year, Conradt praised her team ' s concentration. " I told them before practice started that every time they stepped on the floor this season, whether in a game or practice, I wanted to see intensity. If the first practice was any indication, they ' ll be intense, " Conradt said. The Horns traveled to Tennessee to face the Volunteers, Dec. 9, and Texas came home 97- 78 winners. The team was led by junior Clarissa Davis ' 45 point effort. Conradt though, was most pleased with her group ' s defensive effort in the ball game. " I asked them to go out and play with confidence, with poise and be tough on the by John Pilati boards, " Conradt said. " Two out of three is not bad (Texas tied Tennessee with 39 rebounds). " Conradt also said the game was crucial for!] team unity. " This was a really big win for us. || Not because of the ranking, but because of how | we came together as a team. The bench came in and did the job for us. We fought through some foul trouble, " she said. " The players nevei doubted that they could win and I think they showed what type of potential this team has. " During their non-conference games, the Horns averaged nearly 8,000 fans at the Erwin Center. The road battle with Tennessee was witnessed by 24,563 fans, a record for atten- dance at a NCAA women ' s collegiate basketball game. The Longhorns posted several other impres- sive non -conference wins, including a 79-62 romp of Southern California and a 108-50 crushing of Western Michigan.

Women ' s Basketball 145 ORNS POUND TECH IN SWC TOURNAMENT FINALS Texas ' conference dominance carries over into post-season action. The Lady Longhorns came into the 1988 Southwest Confetence Post-Season Classic never having lost a tournament game, and the team left the tournament with that streak intact after victories over Texas A M and Texas Tech. Texas ' 88-61 defeat of Tech, March 12, was the 500th career win for Coach Jody Conradt. She now stands with Fresno State Coach Bob Spencer as the only two women basketball coaches to reach that milestone. Conradt down- played the significance of the feat. " It really touched me when they presented me with the game ball, " Conradt said. " Today was a good day all around and it was special for a lot of reasons, mostly because we came out playing good basketball. " Senior forward Doreatha Conwell led Texas scoring with 24 points. Conwell, who scored 34 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in the team ' s two tournament games, was unanimously named the tournament ' s Most Valuable Player. The senior said she was glad to be playing at all, after a serious knee injury suffered last season. " I didn ' t doubt that I could come back and concentrate. But I ' ve been amazed myself. The more I play, the better my knee feels and the better my knee is handling it, " Conwell said. In addition to Conwell, senior guards Yulonda Wimbish and Beverly Williams were named to the SWC All-Tournament Team, which was selected by the conference coaches. Wimbish led scoring in the A M game with 21, and Williams had 34 points, 15 assists and five steals in two games. Texas paved the way to t he win with an aggressive defense that limited the Red Raiders by John Pilati to only one inside basket in the first half. The defense, combined with the scoring of Conwell and senior forward C.J. Jones (18 points) was enough to seal another tournament champi- onship, the sixth straight for Texas. The Horns advanced to the finals by routing A M, 72-56. Wimbish paced the scoring with 21, and Conwell had 12 rebounds. The Lady Longhorns extended their streak of consecutive SWC wins to 101 with the two victories. Texas last fell to a SWC opponent, Jan. 23, 1978, in a 59-52 Texas A M victory. After the weekend, the Horns prepared for the upcoming NCAA tournament and a contest with South Carolina.

Texas was eliminated from the NCAA Women ' s Basketball Tournament by Tech for the second consecutive year, March 26, as the Horns fell 83-80. When the regional pairings were announced in early March, UT and Tech drew the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the Midwest Regional, and the course was set for a rematch of last season ' s 79-75 Final Four semifinal Tech win. " I ' m not surprised at out draw, " Conradt said March 15. " I think we ' ve been married the whole season. There were questions about both teams. How we ' d play after we lost Clarissa (Davis), since most of our important wins against top teams came before she was hurt. For Louisiana Tech, the strength of their schedule came into question. The selection committee could only speculate. The best way if you can ' t decide is to put the two schools together and let them play it off. " Play it off they did, and this was a contest Texas had several opportunities to win. The Horns climbed back into the game late in the second half, outscoring the Lady Techsters 8-2 over the final three minutes of regulation play. With eight seconds remaining in overtime and Tech leading 81-80, Texas got the ball back by John Pi aft after a Tech turnover. Sophomore guard Lyssa McBride dribbled to the right of the lane and went up to shoot. At the last second though, she dished the ball off in the direction of senioi forward Doreatha Conwell. A Tech forward came up with the ball, and after two free throws made it 83-80, Texas ' season was over. " It ' s always difficult to live with missed opportunities, " Conradt said. " Lyssa had a shot. I wish she would have taken it. But if she hadn ' t taken and made the ones she did before, we ' re not even in the game. " McBride finished with 12 points on 6-7 shooting in one of her best efforts as a Longhorn. Texas finished the season with a 32-2 mark.

Women ' s Basketball 149 SECOND HALF OF SEASON KEYS SURPRISING TEXAS SUCCESS Horns win nine of last eleven to post winning record fo 1987-88 efforts] Considering the way the season began for the Longhorn men ' s basketball team, the finish was not so bad. The team tied with Houston for fourth place in the Southwest Conference race while SMU won the 1988 conference title. The Horns headed into the Post Season Clas- sic at Dallas ' Reunion Arena with a 16-11 season mark, 10-6 in the SWC, a record better than most experts predicted. Texas became the surprise team in the SWC race, as the Horns still had a chance to win the conference. The Horns opened the season with a loss to Iowa State in the National Invitational Tour- nament. One week later, the team rebounded for a 84-72 victory over Tennessee State at the Erwin Center. Junior Jose Nassar led the scoring with 2 1 points. This contest marked the be- ginning of the " new Longhorns, " as the team changed from its conservative offensive style to a wide open, less-controlled offense. " We were kind of helter-skelter, " Coach Bob Weltlich said. " We didn ' t have a lot of di- rection on the court. We never seemed to lock in a combination offensively. " The Horns overcame 28 turnovers against Tennessee State, due in part to a 52 percent shooting effort from the floor. The Christmas break meant tournaments for Texas, as Weltlich searched for a combination that would carry the team through conference play. Reserves saw extended action as the Horns searched for a solid core. " We hope to continue to show improvement, and I would like to get a set five to eight-man rotation that I can count on. That is what we are looking to do during the break, " Weltlich said in December. The low point of the Horns ' season came during the Apple Invitational Tournament in Palo Alto, Ca., as Texas fell to lowly Brown, 80- 77. After that loss, rumors abounded about Weltlich ' s future at Texas. Conference play began, Jan. 2, at the Erwin Center against Houston. Led by sophomore Travis Mays ' 24 points, Texas shocked the visiting Cougars 65-53. Mays was named SWC player of the week for Jan. 4. Any celebrations after the Houston win en- ded quickly with humiliating back-to-back loss- es to Arkansas and Rice. The Horns were smothered by the Razorbacks, 91-62. After another loss at Texas Tech, 64-55, Texas went on a tear, winning 9 of their final 1 contests. A four-game win streak began, Jan 31, at College Station with a 52-49 upset of th Aggies. Continuing their winning ways, the tean returned to Austin to defeat Baylor, Arkansa and Rice. Finally, Houston avenged its earlie loss to the Horns with a 62-51 home com victory. Mays was outstanding during the Horns ' ho streak with scoring efforts of 25, 22, 15, 22 ani 24 points. He also led the team in reboundin, in five of the eight final games. His lowest scoring output of the season carm March 5, against Baylor. The Horns fell in thei season finale, 84-60. Mays was held to 1 1 point in a disappointing performance for the team. Obviously, he said, a 24-point loss was not at effective building block for the team going inc the tournament, but he said he hoped the tean would remember certain areas of the Baylo game. " Now we have to put it all together for tW tournament, " Mays said. " We can ' t forge about this game. There are things that have t be corrected that we did wrong.

After six years of coaching, head basketball coach Bob Weltlich was dismissed of his duties, March 14. The decision was announced by Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds just three days after the Longhorn ' s disappointing loss, 57-72, to the Houston Cougars in the first round of the Southwest Conference Post Season Classic. In mid-season, Weltlich ' s job seemed to be in trouble after Longhorns losses to Rice and Texas Tech in mid-January. Although these losses dropped their record to 7-9, 1-3 in the con- ference, Texas finished the year 16-13, for Wel- tlich ' s third winning season. Weltlich said the negative publicity which occurred during his years at Texas affected his ability to obtain good recruits. However, after a winning season and a conference co- championship in 1986, Texas signed some highly-recruited players. Weltlich said this proved that the recruits who signed on had to believe that the negative reports from the press about Texas were untrue. Early in his coaching career, Weltlich joined Bobby Knight ' s staff at West Point as an as- sistant and then followed Knight to Indiana to become his assistant for five years. Signed by Ole Miss as head coach in 1976, Weltlich found success in the program and was named South- east Conference Coach of the Year in 1981. He was also chosen as the NCAA District XI Coach of the Year by both Associated Press and United Press International. Weltlich started coaching at the University of Texas in 1982 when the previous program lost 1 1 of its last 13 games. As Weltlich took on the Texas challenge, he instilled in his players strong beliefs for his program: hard work, fundamen- tals, emphasis on defense, and an offense that takes the high percentage shot. After two years of rebuilding, Weltlich ' s 1985 team finished the season with a 15-13 record. His 1986 team finished with a 19-12 season record and a SWC co-championship. In 1986, Weltlich was named the Southwest Con- ference Coach of the Year. The decision to fire Weltlich was announced by Dodds, who said Weltlich did not fit into plans to move ahead with the basketball pro- by Gloria Martinez gram. Weltlich had a history of disagreements with players. Less than one week after the an- nouncement, freshman Steven McTavish said he was considering rejoining the team. McTavish quit in December, saying he did not want to invest four years into the current program. Weltlich refused comment outside of a brief written statement issued shortly after his firing. " With the current recruiting and improved play and the prospects for next season, I ai dissappointed at the decision to relieve me. I sure the people involved in the decision di what they felt was in the best interest for the program, " Weltlich said. In addition to his collegiate coaching, Wel- tlich worked in international competition. He coached the United States National Team which won the silver medal in the 1982 World Am- ateur Championships, losing to the favored Russian team, 95-94, in the finals. He also served as assistant coach at the 1984 United States Olympic Trials as well as coaching the South Team to a silver medal at the Na- tional Sports Festival in Syracuse. urn. jos ) ! b,AMS - ' l T B ( KIV ' 152 Men ' s Basketball Peter Rene .

Texas entered the NCAA meet two weeks after winning their sixth consecutive Southwest Conference title in Fayetteville. The Horns won easily in Arkansas, finishing with 1,063 points to second place SMU ' s 575. Arkansas finished third with 504. At the SWC championship, 17 Longhorn swimmers and divers qualified for the NCAA meet, including four new sprinters. Seniors An- nette Cowley and Colleen Griffin, junior Peggy Meagher and sophomore Jeanne Doolan all qualified as sprinters. Texas qualified a swim- mer in every event, 14, except the 100 butterfly. Two swimmers though, freshmen Kelley Davies and Kristi Kiggans, qualified in the 200 but- terfly. After Thursday, March 17, the first day of competition, Texas held a slim lead of 37 points. Florida was right behind, and Longhorn Coach Richard Quick had good reason to worry. After Friday ' s competition though, the Horns ' lead swelled to 93 points (474 to 381) and the loss of senior Tracey McFarlane would not come back to haunt Texas. McFarlane strained a groin muscle during her win in the 100-yard breaststroke and she was unavailable for action beyond Friday. Her time of 1:51 in the 100 breaststroke broke the U.S. Open and NCAA meet records in the event, as well as the American record. McFarlane is a Canadian citizen, so she was ineligible to add the American record to her titles. " The worst part is that this was the last tiirl I ' ll ever swim the 100 breaststroke, " McFarlarl said. " I ' ll never have the American record. I alii wanted to be the first to break a minute. I can | do that either. " Despite McFarlane ' s injury, Texas won thnj of eight events Friday night.

We set lots of lifetime best times in this meet. " Senior Betsy Mitchell won the 100 and 200 backstroke events on Saturday en route to set- ting pool records in both events. She credited past disappointments in meets for her success in 1988. " I think I was a little more hungry. I ' ve had some major setbacks, as well as highlights, and I ' ve learned that whatever happens, you just have to come back, " Mitchell said. She posted the strong backstroke times after a sub-par showing in the 200 individual medley. Texas went into the meet expecting just what they received tight competition from second- ranked Stanford and third-ranked Florida. Both squads entered the NCAA Championship fresh off the heels of conference meet championships. The Horns entered the meet with a young squad that included five freshmen and these freshmen were being counted on to produce. Fetter, Da- vies, Kiggans, Susan Johnson and Kelly Jenkins would have to finish well for Texas to surge past the Gators and the Cardinal. They did produce and the end result was another Longhorn wom- en ' s national championship. " It has been a tremendous effort throughout our lineup, " Quick said. " Florida swam well, and they had a great meet. We ' re just glad there weren ' t more of them.

The Horns used a strong second-day effort to win the competition held in the University of Indiana Natatorium. Texas finished with 424 points, while USC was second with 369.5 and Stanford third with 276.5. Despite critics ' doubts about the team, Texas swimmers remained confident and optimistic about their chances at Nationals. " I think we did (expect to perform well). It just took the right spark from the right people to get everybody rolling, and we got that, " sophomore Doug Gjertsen said. The Horns believe their 1988 success lays the groundwork for dominance in the next few years. The team loses only two seniors, Chris Jacobs and Spencer Martin, so the immediate outlook is quite positive. " All our relays were basically the same. It ' s looking pretty good from that aspect. We just have to keep our heads on, " sophomore Kirk Stackle said. Texas overcame a sizable USC lead to move in front after two days. Strong performances included the 400 medley relay team of junior Andy Gill, sophomores Keith Anderson Stackle and Jacobs, which won the event, was expected to be a difficult race for the Horns, but the surprise win led to an eventual sweep of all relay events. " It was real important that we won the one that we had the most question about, " Gjert: said. " We started saying, ' Well, we won the we didn ' t know about. ' So we thought, ' Wh don ' t we win them all? " Other Texas first place swims included t 400 freestyle relay team of Jacobs, freshman Shaun Jordan and Anderson, and Stackle ' s win in the 200 breast stroke.

Consisting of three sophomores and two freshmen, the 1988 Lady Longhorn diving team may have been young but they were certainly a force. Head diving coach Mike Brown said, " This is easily the most talented diving team top to bottom that we ' ve had in some time. " Sophomore Lisa Hallee had already qualified in both one-meter and three-meter diving events when the team faced its first real chal- lenge of the season, meets with No. 8 USC and No. 9 UCLA, Dec. 4-5. With victories over both, the team crossed its first obstacle. The men ' s diving team qualified two swim- mers to the NCAA meet. All-American senior Kurt Bubnis qualified for the NCAAs in both three-meter and platform diving. He did well in the SWC Championships, placing third in plat- form and fourth in three-meter to qualify. Jun- ior Christian Styren competed in the NCAAs in the one-meter and platform events. He captured fourth place awards in both events at the SWC meet as well as a sixth place finish in three- meter diving. The entire women ' s diving team qualified for the NCAA zone meet, the qualifying meet for national competition. At the SWC Champi- onships, the Lady Horns blew away the com- petition. Accumulating 1,063 total points in by Watson Fung swimming and diving, Texas once again cap tured the meet as they have since the first one ii 1983.

" It takes so much out of you, but it ' s great t be a part of this team.

Texas began the third and final day of com- petition with an eight-stroke lead, and by day ' s end, the Horns broke a SWC record for the widest victory margin in the tournament. Fresh- man Michiko Hattori won top medalist honors with a three-day, 54-hole total of 2 13. She won five of the team ' s nine tournaments during the year, including the Horns ' host tournament, the Betsy Rawls Classic. Coach Pat Weis saw her team score a three- day score of 900, well below second place SMU and TCU ' s 928. Weis was named SWC Coach of the Year for the second time in 1988, but she was quick to return the credit to her team. After Texas ' victory at Betsy Rawls, Weis knew the team was headed in the right direction. " It sure was fun to win one at home, " Weis said. " We ' re a good team. Sue (Ginter) and Ginger (Brown) are playing well as seniors and showing leadership. Kate (Golden) has really been improving and practicing a lot. " Texas placed four team members on the All- SWC team, including Brown, Ginter, Golden and Hattori. Golden, the defending SWC champion, finished eighth with a 235. Fresh- man Annette Stott placed seventh with a 234. Hattori though, was the key to this, and most of this season ' s tournament victories. At Betsy Rawls, Hattori rebounded from a slow start on the final round to score a one-over 73. She won the individual title at that tournament and led the Horns to a 28-stroke victory over Georgia. It was Texas ' first victory in the tournament in 13 years. Hattori said she learned over the course of the year to concentrate on her game, and not how her opponents were doing. " When I lost to Tracy (Kerdyk, the nation ' s No. 1 player at the Mustang Roundup April 10), I was worried about her score. I didn ' t concentrate on my own game. I learned a lot from that tournament, " Hattori said. After the SWC victory, Texas ' attentions turned toward the NCAA Championships, May 25-28. Last season the Horns finished 17th at nationals.

Tennis, of the likes of Martina or Ivan, may seem like an individual sport. But for the Long- horn Women ' s tennis team, teamwork produces victories and wins trophies. Together the Lady Horns overcame injury and stiff competition to win their fifth Southwest Conference Cham- pionship in six years. Both Texas and SMU went into the post- season tourney, April 22-24, with 7- 1 records in conference play. In the early rounds of match play at Penick- Allison Tennis Center, Texas and SMU prevailed as expected, setting the stage for a climactic final. Texas breezed by Arkansas, 5- 0, and Texas A M, 5-0, and then inched by the Mustangs in a 5-3 upset. Sophomore Diana Merrett led the Horns with wins in the 2 singles spot and w ith freshman Stacie Often in the 2 doubles spot. Solidifying the conference title for the Horns, senior Michelle Carrier and sophomore Lanae Renschler captured the 3 doubles crown while Carrier beat SMU ' s Claire Evert at 3 singles. At the NCAA Championship tournament, May 1 1-19 at UCLA, 17th-seeded Texas lost in the early rounds to West Coast powerhouse and I6th-seeded Pepperdine. This was the sixth consecutive year that the Lady Horns competed in the NCAA Championships. Three-time All-American, senior Anne Grousbeck joined Merrett in the NCAA in- dividual singles championship, also at UCLA. It was expected that Grousbeck would be seeded in the top ten for this all-important tourney. Merrett was ranked in the top 35 during the year and entered NCAAs as the 28 player in the country. Not only did Merrett receive All-American and All-SWC honors at year ' s end, but the young player from Richardson also earned the distinction of being the only woman player to go by Jennifer Stephens undefeated in both singles and doubles in the SWC in the past season. Despite injuries, Grousbeck maintained a t five national ranking in singles throughout the year. An All-SWC player, she compiled an impressive 19-4 slate at the 1 slot for Texas. In addition, Grousbeck won the singles title at the fall USAir ITCA All-America tournament. She credited her success to both overcoming injuries and receiving team support. " It makes it a lot easier to work hard and to be disciplined and devoted because you have nine other people who are counting on you, not just yourself, " Grousbeck said. In regular season play, the Lady Horns com- piled an overall 13-10 record. On the road, Texas was only 3-6 in dual matches, facing such top-ranked teams as Florida, Miami amd Southern Cal. Home matches were different as Texas went 10-4 at the Penick- Allison courts.

The Longhorn men knew that, in order to receive the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, they would have to win the SWC Championships, held April 22-24 in Aus- tin. Texas met TCU in the semifinals, but even the home-court edge was not enough to stop the Frogs, who advanced to the finals after a 5-4 victory over the Horns. Texas Coach Dave Snyder, who has seen his team advance to the NCAA playoffs each of the last four seasons, had a realistic perspective about the SWC tournament. " I knew it would be a longshot (to win). I told them that an NCAA bid might be at stake. I still think we have a 50-50 chance, " Snyder said. Texas opened the tournament against Baylor, and the Horns responded well by not losing a match. No. 1 singles player senior Paul Kos- cielski defeated Baylor ' s Robert Henderson 6-4, 6-2. Sophomore Patrick Flynn won his match over Reich Chandler 6-0, 6-3 in No. 3 singles. Freshmen Aaron Gross, Mitch Michulka and Hubert Karasch also won their singles matches. Michulka felt confident after the Horns ' victory over Baylor. " I lost some of my confidence earlier this season and it snowballed. Once I won a few, 1 regained the confidence I have now, " he said. Against TCU, Koscielski was matched against the nation ' s No. 27 player, Clint by John Pilati Banducci. Koscielski held an early 4-1 lead in the first set, but it was not enough, as Banducci went onto a 6-4, 6-4 win. Koscielski again fell with doubles partner Michulka in the decisive top doubles match. Texas finished the regular season as the na- tion ' s No. 13 team. The Horns posted a 1-1 dual match record against TCU during the regular season. Arkansas received the automatic NCAA bid after defeating TCU in the finals. Controversy surrounded the bid though, as coaches were unsure whether the new format designed by the conference called for the regular season cham- pion or tournament champion to advance au- tomatically. Either way, Arkansas would have ended with the top spot. INTENSITY: Senior Paul Koscielski eyes the ball as he prepares to punish it with his forehand.

In 1987, Texas finished second to high-point leader Alabama, but the NCAA ruled that Alabama used an ineligible athlete so Texas was crowned national champs 1 1 months after the meet. In Oklahoma though, Texas left no doubt about who would be victorious. Texas estab- lished an early lead and held it, despite a good showing by Villanova. The team picked up four individual titles, more than any team in the meet ' s six-year history. Additionally, the Horns won the 1,600-meter relay. Texas amassed 71 points, also an all-time high, to the delight of Coach Terry Crawford. " That ' s what I ' m most pleased with, " Crawford said. " It shows it was a balanced team effort. That ' s the kind of program I want to have. We don ' t have to rely on any one event. " Nine Horns were named All- Americans and each finished no worse than sixth at nationals. Freshman Carlette Guidry had an incredible meet, winning two individual events, placing second in another, and also contributing to the relay victory. Guidry set school records in the 55 meters (6.72), long jump (21-0 3 4) and 200 meters (23.25). She was recognized as the top performer in the meet, and she became the first woman to win two individual events at an NCAA meet. Confidence, she said, was the key to her success. " Well, I had a little butterflies before the start. But the majority of it was confidence. I have to have it to run with the people I had to run against, " Guidry said. Crawford said Guidry ' s success laid the groundwork for the team ' s success in the meet. " It is very satisfying to have an effort like we had. Obviously, Carlette set things up for us, " Crawford said. " But everyone came through with great efforts. We ' re a very balanced team. " Senior Karol Davidson won the 800 meters, clinching Texas ' championship. Freshman Angie Bradburn won the high jump with a record breaking jump of 6-2 to grab the Horns ' other two individual championships. Crawford, who decided at year ' s end to re- main at Texas and reject a coaching offer at her alma mater Tennessee, has led Texas to four national track championships in four years.

Women ' s Track 173 Ai RKANSAS TAKES SWC AS TEXAS PLAYS SECOND FIDDLE Men ' s track team uses conference tournament as tune-up for NCAAs The Longhorn men ' s track team felt a Ra- zorback breathing down their necks throughout the 1988 Southwest Conference Track and Field Championships, and Texas had more than one reason to glance over its shoulder. By the meet ' s end, Arkansas found itself victorious with a 155-149 edge over Texas. The second place finish meant the end of a two-year conference reign for Texas, and the difference was in the field events, where the Razorbacks made a 5 1 -point improvement over their 1987 second place effort. Arkansas dis- tance runners also showed strong, producing 77 points. Texas won five events on the meet ' s final day, including a school record in the 400 relay with a 39.39. Junior Winthrop Graham set a meet record in the intermediate hurdles with a 48.87 and senior Rusty Hunter won the decathlon in the first year the conference has included the event. The Horns had high hopes in the long jump, where NCAA qualifier Eric Metcalf was ex- pected to show strong, but Metcalf arrived min- utes before the event after returning from a family emergency. He placed fourth in the event with a 26-3. Senior Jay Cashman won the discus with a throw of 182 ' ,0 " , living up to high pre-meet expectations. Texas Coach Stan Huntsman was pleased with his team ' s showing despite the second place finish. " We had a good meet. I ' m real pleased, " Huntsman said. " Arkansas had some major reverses in the long jump and triple jump from last year. Their jumpers were ready, as ready as I ' ve ever seen them. " Senior long jumper Johnny Washington was also expected to score well for Texas, but his disappointing 25-4 3 4 was only good enough for sixth place. The Horns finished with eight points in the one event they most expected to dominate. Senior Pablo Squella had an outstanding sea- son capped off by a successful SWC tournament showing. Squella won the 800 meters with a season-low time of 1:47.84. Junior Harry Green placed third i n the 10,000 with a 30:29.07 and junior Jon Shelton won the high jump with a 7- 3 1 2. The victory for the Razorbacks was the school ' s fourth. Texas remains far ahead of the conference in the tournament with 40 titles. After conference, the Horns set their sights on the NCAAs, held later that month.

Coach Cliff Gustafson started the season with 10 returning lettermen including senior first baseman Brian Cisarik and junior catcher Brian Johnson. St. Mary ' s was the first victim of the Horns ' 1988 season, as they were swept in the season opening doubleheader. Gustafson needed only seven more wins to reach the 1,000 win mile- stone in collegiate games as a coach. The 1,000th win occurred in the first game of a doubleheader on Feb. 2 1 against Texas- Arlington. A home crowd of 4,968 was on hand to witness the feat accomplished by only two other coaches in college baseball. " It is good to get the 1,000 wins, " Gustafson said immediately after the game. " There have been a lot of distractions for this team because of all of the publicity around me and that is really not fair. The credit shouldn ' t go to me it goes to the team this team, and the ones before it. It is a great thrill. When I started, I never expected to win 1,000 games. " Third-ranked Miami proved to be a for- midable opponent on Feb. 27 and 28. Riding an 11 -game winning streak, the Horns beat Miami 8-5 in the first game, becoming the first of the two teams to win a game as a visitor in the history of Texas-Miami series. Junior pitch- er Eric Stone got the win to improve his record to 4-1, and Texas was content to split the series with Miami. A nationally-telecast home game with Mich- igan featured the debut of Sullivan Award win- ner, Michigan ' s Jim Abbott. The left-hander, who was born without a right arm, was pound- ed for five hits and seven runs as UT coasted to an 1 1-2 victory. Texas was led by sophomore outfielder Scott Bryant who stole the limelight by driving in four runs with a double, two sacrifice flies, and a solo home run. Freshman pitcher Kirk Dressendorfer added to the win column for the Longhorns by de- feating Pepperdine 8-1 on March 6. The right hander improved his record to 4-1 in a re- markable season in which he earned SWC Play- er of the Year and SWC Newcomer of the Year honors. Pitcher Eric Stone helped wrap up the non- conference schedule with a record-setting per- formance against Southwestern Louisiana. The Texas hurler struck out 19 batters for the all- time UT record in a nine-inning game as UT outlasted USL 2-0. In the best outing of his career, the junior from Mesquite was one baserunner shy of a perfect game, walking only one batter in the one-hitter. Texas scored in the third inning when Brian Cisarik advanced on a wild pitch. The Horns scored the only other run in the game in the seventh inning on Chimelis ' second successful suicide-squeeze bunt to give the Texas left-hander some added insurance. After a two-game sweep of Cornell March 22, Texas was ready to open SWC play boasting a 32-5 record before a road series against Texas Christian. 176 .

Baseball 177 TEXAS ROLLS THROUGH swc WITH USUAL GUSTAFSON SUCCESS Horns clinch conference title with key home sweep of Texas A M The Texas Longhorn baseball team began the 1988 campaign with much concern about pitching. Coach Cliff Gustafson wondered whether his young staff could gel quickly enough to keep the Horns near the top of the Southwest Conference race. The staff responded well in pre-conference competition, and the final week prior to conference play saw four starters have quality outings. Texas was now ready, in all areas, to dominate conference play. The Horns opened in Fort Worth March 26, for a three game set with Texas Christian. Texas pitchers allowed only five runs in the first two games as the Horns scored 3-2 and 10-3 vic- tories. The series finale was a slugfest, but Texas escaped with an 11-10 victory. Junior pitcher Eric Stone got the win in two of the three games. Texas then faced Baylor April 1, for the first of three games. Gustafson proved he was no fool on this day by again starting Stone, who re- sponded with a shutout. A crowd of 5,227 watched Texas ' conference home opener, an 8-0 laugher. The Horns went onto 4-1 and 14-0 wins to sweep the Bears. After a non-conference series split with Okla- homa, the Horns took their 6-0 record into Houston April 8, to face the spirited Rice Owls. Stone pitched the opener to get his 1 2th win of the season as Texas rolled 15-2. On Saturday, Texas dropped its first conference game and fell into a first place tie with Texas A M. Rice won the first game of a doubleheader 6-4 on the wave of a six-run fifth inning. Texas errors on back-to-back bunt plays keyed the Owl rally, along with a bases loaded walk by losing pitcher freshman Kirk Dressendorfer. Gustafson didn ' t mind the loss as much as the way it came for Texas. " When you ' re on the road and a team wants to beat you as badly as Rice wants to beat us and then we hand it to them, that ' s no surprise, " Gustafson said. The third and decisive game was won by Texas 1 1-9, but not before the Horns tried every possible method to give away the contest. Texas botched leads of 5-1 and 10-7, but winning pitcher sophomore Curry Harden hung on for the Horns. The team returned to Austin with an 8- 1 SWC record, and mixed emotions about the series. " We wanted to come out of here 9-0 in the conference, but I guess taking two helps, " soph- omore outfielder Scott Bryant said. Texas would not lose again in conference play. Sweeps of Texas Tech, Texas A M and Ar- kansas followed the Rice series. Only a tie against Houston in a game suspended due to darkness prevented a sweep of the Cougars. The A M series, played April 22-23 in Austin, was the key series of the year as the two teams battled for SWC control. The Aggies came in with a 44-7 overall record, 11-1 in conference. They were ranked No. 5 in the Collegiate Base- ball ESPN poll prior to the series. The Horns would face their biggest test of the season in the Aggies, and Texas pitching would have to be raised a level to match the strength of Texas A M ' s hurlers. The Aggies looked to rely on pitching to win the series, but Texas had other thoughts. After Friday ' s 10-2 Texas win, the Horns began to smell a sweep. " They said a lot of stuff that they might have the best pitching in the nation and one of their pitchers said they were going to take two out of three, but we weren ' t about to let that happen in our own yard, " junior third baseman Craig Newkirk said. Texas rolled to 1-0 and 7-6 victories Saturday to insure at least a share of the conference title. The Horns finished the regular season with a 51-8-1, 21-1-1 record as Longhorn attentions focused on their first round Southwest Con- ference Tournament battle with Baylor.

Robert Kirkti.iiu Baseball 179 T AKING THE LONG ROAD TO ANOTHER SWC BASEBALL CROWN Texas rebounds from an opening- round loss to Baylor to win tht SWC crowi You had to expect to see the Texas Longhorns win their second consecutive conference baseball title May 19-22, in Fayetteville, Ark. That part was understood. The mystery would be whether the Horns would lose a game en route to their goal. Well, they did, and it only served to make Texas mad mad enough to roll to four straight victories and the league ' s crown. The Horns exhibited a less-than-spirited ef- fort on May 19 against Baylor. Texas fell to the Bears 4-2, and immediately the pressure of survival would be felt. Texas rebounded to defeat the host-team Razorbacks May 20, set- ting the stage for a rematch with Baylor. The Bears fell to Texas A M Friday night, and thus fell into the loser ' s bracket. Texas looked to be an unlikely victor over Baylor. The Bears had never fallen to Texas in post-season action, and they were coming off a victory over the Horns just two days earlier. A three-run eighth broke a 5-5 tie, and Texas held on to end an unwanted string of tournament defeats at the hands of Baylor. Texas Coach Cliff Gustafson had kind words for the Bears after the game. " Baylor is one of the most improved teams you ' d ever want to see. (Coach) Mickey Sullivan and his staff deserve an awful lot of credit, " Gustafson said. Texas didn ' t make it easy, stranding 12 run- ners and losing leads of 3-1 and 5-2. Longhorn pitcher Curry Harden was rocked in the seventh inning, as Baylor came back to make it a one- run game. Winning pitcher Steve Cantu came on for some effective relief though, and Texas moved on to face the Aggies. Baylor ' s season ended after the defeat, and Sullivan wished his conference rivals well in their quest for a NCAA title. " I hope Cliff goes to Omaha and wins the whole thing for the conference. I think Texas and A M will advance right up the ladder, " Sullivan said. " They and Arkansas are three of the best teams we ' ve had in the conference in a long time. " Texas faced the Aggies later that evening, and the Horns responded with a 10-0 rout. Junior pitcher Preston Watson had a career-best show- ing as he two-hit the Aggies to insure a final game Sunday. The Horns pounded out 1 3 hits, but the talk centered solely around Watson ' s 12-strikeout effort. On Sunday, Texas again defeated the Aggies to take SWC top honors. Freshman Brian Dare got the win, his first as a Longhorn, in a 12-7 slugfest. The Horns had dodged a major bullet by winning three games in 24 hours to again lay claim to a conference championship, Gustaf- son ' s 18th during his 20-year tenure at Texas. After the SWC Tournament, Texas was seed- ed No. 1 as the host team in the NCAA Central Regional Tournament. The Longhorns ' first test was Southern University, and Texas set the course for its remaining contests by falling be- by John Pilati hind early 3-0. A tough Longhorn rally in late innings bailed the Horns out though, as Texas posted a 7-3 victory. Dressendorfer got the starting nod in th Horns ' next battle with New Orleans. Tru young freshman pitched in and out of trouble, but hot Texas bats bailed him out for a 16- 1C win. Craig Newkirk led Texas with two home runs as the Horns blasted Privateer pitching foi 16 hits, six for extra bases. The win set up a showdown with California, the tournament ' s only other unbeaten team. A RBI double by Cal ' s John Kuehl in the ninth inning gave the Golden Bears a 8-7 victory and Texas found itself in a deep hole. Pitching again gave Texas fits as Cal received nine walks on the afternoon. In order to advance to Omaha, Texas needed three wins without a loss. The first step would be Michigan, a team Texas defeated soundly earlier in the season. Newkirk again added some offensive spark with an eighth inning homer, giving the Horns a 5-4 victory and new life in the Regional. Dressendorfer came on in relief ol Stone to get his 15th win of the season. Texas would need two straight victories ovei Cal to stay alive, but a 6-5 Golden Bears ' victory in the first game sent California on in the tournament, and Texas packing. The Horns finished the season 58-1 1-1. 180 Baseball (il bt -j I MMnr if i M Tta lidonj so Vtir, a. CiiWM o St. Mary ' s 2-1. 10-5 TCV . . . 3-2, 10-3. 11-10 Anzntia State 2 F " - ?

Thousands of fans left Memorial Stadium after Longhorn home football games in 1987 with hoarse voices, a condition indicative of a renewed spirit among students at UT. The primary responsibility of the ten Texas cheerleaders and one yell leader was to bring this spirit down onto the field. According to the cheerleaders their efforts paid off more in 1987 than in recent years. " The optimism was a whole lot easier to see, " junior cheerleader Candace Emig said. " It was easier to cheer, and the students were more willing to cheer. They made our job much easier. " She said that the return of a spirited student body was not a surprise, considering the proud history of the University of Texas. " This year there were a lot of things. Texas has always been a traditional and proud school. Coach McWilliams is great. We all had so much faith in the team. This is Texas; Here we believe in ourselves, " Emig said. This year ' s squad was especially happy, Emig said, with the successful results of several pep rallies held throughout the course of the season. The group circulated information about the rallies through several routes. " Most of the cheerleaders are active in other campus organizations, so that ' s a good foot in the door. We ' d also go into classes and write about the pep rallies on the chalkboards. We ' d go to dorms too. We tried every way possible to get students to these pep rallies, " Emig said. She also explained that the cheerleaders ' re- sponsibilities were not just to the players. " We have obligations to the crowd too, " Emig said. " We watch what ' s going on on the field and the players are affected on the field. We get the students going and then the players start waving their hands and the fans get louder and louder. " The squad ' s success did not stop with the Bluebonnet Bowl. They went to the National Cheerleaders ' Association championships in Dallas and returned with a second place finish, behind only Oklahoma State University. " We were very honored to even be selected last year when we placed third. We were just as honored this year but we believed in our rou- tines and ourselves and it worked for us. It really went very well, " Emig said. As she looked toward 1988 Longhorn com- petition, Emig said she hopes that the student spirit will keep rolling. " I saw more spirit this past season than all the time that I ' ve been here. You can really see it and I just hope it keeps going. This is a great school with so much going for it, " Emig said. by John Pilati CIRCLE OF SPIRIT: Longhorn football cheerleaders clown around before the outset of the Bluebonnet Bowl in the Astrodome.

Cheerleaders 183 Supporters ensure in athletic success With so much athletic success at the Uni- versity of Texas, it became easy to forget any- thing or anyone outside of what was seen on the field, court or track. For each athletic accom- plishment though, the behind-the-scenes con- tributions of trainers, managers and student volunteers could not be forgotten. Students teamed with faculty members to provide medical to moral support for all Texas varsity athletic programs. Spirit clubs supported the football, basketball, baseball and swim teams, just to name a few. Students volunteered to coordinate and run events ranging from the Texas Relays to tennis matches. Before the first jump, run or vault, volunteers placed the mats, hurdles and starting blocks. Trainers were always there for the athletes before, during and after injuries. And who could forget the fans. Each Longhorn victory was sweetened by the roar of the friendly crowd, always willing to express its appreciation for effort, no matter what the result. A busy non-athletic community operated within the larger athletic world. Each depended on the other, and each was an integral part of what we knew as the magic of 1988 Longhorn athletics. by John Pilati STOREKEEPER: Matchmate Connie Niemann keeps track of the score of a UT- Texas A M men ' s tennis match.

IP ASKITORCF. If only more could be done . . . ainting the house, picking up garbage and babysitting. Those were things parents could not pay their children to do, yet April 23, over 900 University students fanned out across Austin and did those tasks and more, all in the name of Project Outreach. The idea for this school-wide volunteer day came from a small group of students who knew of people on campus who wanted to give their time but were not sure how or where. These founding students approached President Cunningham with the idea in December and received a positive response. The com- mittee members then submitted a budget proposal to the Dean of Students Office and received funding. The beginning of the spring semester found these students sending information and questionnaires to area non-profit organizations. Organization directors were asked about projects that could be completed in one day. " We received volunteer requests from almost 300 agencies, " Project Outreach intern Karen Parker, first year law student, said. " And what ' s even better is that we have almost every single position filled. " Project Outreach was modeled after similar events that had occurred at Baylor and Texas A M. " This gives our students a chance to get a taste of volunteering. They can continue with it after this day or they can participate just this once, " Parker said. " Any time that someone is able to give to a needy organization is time well-spent. Everyone involved benefits from volunteering. " The day ' s projects ranged from painting and yard work at the Austin Family Center courtesy of the Plan II Students ' Association to the Leadership Board ' s cleaning of the Littlefield Fountain and taking down old tree signs on the South Mall. Other organizations cleaned up Austin parks and greenbelts through KLBJ ' s Clean Sweep and collected and boxed food for the Capitol Area Food Bank. Liz Blevins, pre-med senior, organized the Texas Union Campus Entertainment Committee to paint the Paramount Theatre. The building had been spray-painted with graffiti and the committee spent their afternoon painting over it. Business Council members enjoyed the beautiful weather by participating in outdoor activities such as picnics and kite-flying with residents of Travis State School. " Our motivation for founding Project Outreach was to show people how easy it is to perform this work. All each project requires is a willingness to give of yourself, " committee member Paul Tobias, first year law student, said. by Bridget Metzger STUDENT LEADERSHIP EDITED BY BRIDGET METZGER Student Leadership 187 CHANGING FLICKS: Cynthia Salazar, fashion mer- chandising freshman, and Valerie Lopez, secondary ed- ucation sophomore, change the film sign in the Jester West Lobby.

Mostly because two east went with us and we made so many good friends, " Charla Long, mechanical engineering freshman, said. On Saturday afternoon they hiked and fished and in the evening went swimming in the frigid waters of the Pedernales. While Long and three others were in the water, the rest of the happy campers sat on the bank and sang TV tunes. " But one of the best parts was playing truth or dare late that night, " Long said. One camper said she had to perform an exotic dance around the campfire and though that was embarrassing, she preferred it to telling the truth. Another who preferred to keep her secrets to herself had to desc ribe herself in 20 adjectives. " We cooked and ate and cooked and ate. We FRONT ROW: Mary Michelle Hernandez. Antoinette Garcia.

John Foxworth Advisors promote comradery North and South combine forces to launch dollar run = ogetherness shared through experience is E what makes Kinsolving special, " North ad- " visor Joy Chevalier, aerospace engineering sophomore, said. The Kinsolving North and South Ad- visors who represented residents were com- bined into one central government. The advisors handled the funds for programs planned by floor resident assistants. The Resident Assistants, in turn, planned study break parties, outings with Moore-Hill men, and door decorations for the holidays. " Kinsolving keeps residents informed and involved, " Kinsolving South advisor Grace Hu, bio-chemistry senior, said. The resident assistants and the advisors planned several projects for involving Kinsolv- ing residents. One of these activities, the dollar run, helped raise funds for the University Seal, a project of the Student Involvement Committee. The dollar run which had only been done in the past by Kinsolving South residents, became a joint effort during both semesters. The girls ran door-to-door through the dorm, collecting money from residents. The floor that had collected the most money at the end of the race won prizes such as cakes and other baked goodies. The money collected helped the SIC raise funds for a giant University Seal to be placed at the bottom of the south steps of the Main Building Tower. Another project, the Faculty Fellow proj- ect, helped the girls get to know faculty members better. Each hall chose a professor who offered advice on college life, and shared lunches and dinners with the residents in the Kinsolving cafeteria. Other projects planned by advisors and resident assistants were the annual Whites- tone Christmas Party .with the Moore-Hill men, a food drive for a battered women ' s shelter, a Halloween party and the Spring formal. . by Christine Heart HIT ME!: Janet Lafnear, chemical engineering sophomore, strikes it rich at the University Residence Halls Association ' s formal.

We were very pleased with the out- come. " It was not all fun and games at Andrews, however. The dorm received a computer lab during the year, and also ordered an in-house copy machine so residents would not have to walk to the Union after dark to make copies. Funds for these study aids were earned through projects such as Ghostgrams which advisors sold at Halloween.

Ghostgrams were glass tumblers enscribed with the recipient ' s name, filled with candy and delivered to the recipient. " It was really a lot of fun to deliver the Ghostgrams, " Holland said. " It really got me in the spirit of the holiday. " In addition to these events, Andrews advisors supervised the entertainment for the Surprise Your Roommate (SYR) party, participated in flashcards at football games and joined with Prather Hall for V alPal activities.

To promote interaction within Blanton and with the men ' s dorms the Advisors held ad- ditional activities including Sunday dinners, t- shirt exchanges, Halloween boo buddies and SYR (Surprise Your Roommate Party).

Children of the residence hall ' s staff and of residents of the Austin Women ' s Shelter were the guests for the ghostly evening. Parading through the halls trick-or-treating, they went by different rooms to collect candy and surprises and then were led through a haunted house. " It was a lot of fun for us and I think the kids really enjoyed it, " fall advisory president Terri Pinney, government sophomore, said. The evening event was a tradition for Carothers residents and, the advisors said, ben- efited everyone who was involved. The advisors ' goal was making the dorm a home-away-from-home for residents. Through social events and community activities, the ad- visors provided a friendly atmosphere in the dorm. " We make tags for everyone ' s door each month, have movie nights and roommate ap- preciation parties, " Pinney said. " We try to establish a community atmosphere here for the residents. " Carothers advisors stood out from other women ' s residence hall advisories in their manner of electing their advisors. Each floor had a senior advisor who had been chosen the pre- vious spring while two additional advisors were elected in the fall. According to Pinney, most dorms held their elections in the spring. By utilizing the two- semester system at Carothers, new residents be- came involved and the amount of newly elected advisors who dropped out during the summer was reduced. " We ' re the only residence hall that does it this way and I think it works better, " Pinney said. " The other dorms will probably be chang- ing to our method sometime in the near future. That ' s just one of the things that sets Carothers apart from the rest.

Littlefield dormitory was built because Major George W. Littlefield wanted every first-year student to live on campus for protection and camaraderie. A strong financial supporter of the University of Texas, he designated the land for the dorm and dedicated it to the " Freshmen Class of Young Women " in memory of his wife, Alice Tiller Littlefield. Seven sophomore advisors who had previ- ously lived in Littlefield Dormitory during their freshman years, were inducted, Feb. 25, 1988, after a celebration for Major Littlefield ' s birth- day. These advisors provided a homey atmo- sphere and entertaining activities to help stu- dents in the all-freshmen dorm adapt to their new environment and lifestyle. Rumors of Littlefield hauntings echoed through the dorm halls, Oct. 31. On Hal- loween, Littlefield women gathered in the dorm living room where ghost stories were told to begin an eerie evening.

This event called for roommates to find dates for each other and included dancing and casino games. " The girls get excited because they get to meet people for their roommates and them- selves. It ' s a lot of fun to be able to set your roommate up with someone, " Advisory Vice President Carol Sufcazage, biology-pre-med sophomore, said. Throughout the year, the Littlefield women kept busy with projects including the Christmas party for the school for the deaf, a luau with Roberts Dormitory, secret pals, study buddies and peer counselors.

In the past few years residents did not know what the dorm council did or thought they did nothing at all. " We are trying to change our image so that the students realize we are here not only to help out with morale, but also to voice opinions and problems about Moore- Hill, " hall representative Joe Boyer, liberal arts sophomore, said. Movie Night, which occurred every Tuesday, was the most popular event sponsored by the council. Directing dorm basketball and football tournaments was also a means for the council to help students and improve their image among fellow dormitory residents. Parties were thrown periodically and encom- passed everything from a back-to-school party to a Halloween casual to Sunday afternoon bur- ger burns. " The last burger burn was great! I went and the hamburgers were totally scrump- tious, " Phillip Mallory, pre-med freshman, said. Moore-Hill council members were also in- strumental at the Resident Hall Association Formal, as they set up casino tables and acted as dealers at the event. Along with parties and recreational activities, Moore-Hill embarked upon a year-round in- formation campaign. Speakers came to the dorm and discussed problems with the students about everything from contraception to smoking to stress. Posters found in the halls reiterated facts about these same matters. To pay for all these services, students were charged a one dollar fee upon registering with Student Housing. Dorm council also earned money by ushering at the Erwin Center and sponsoring a spring aluminum cap drive. by John Metzger I HOOPIN ' IT: Joe Boyer, liberal arts sophomore, prepares to pass the ball during the basketball tourney. Moore-Hill Hall Council- I Resident Assistants in world ' s largest co-ed dorm make University life easn Many students call them ' Cruise Directors i ome called them Jester Vice. To others j-s they were known as cruise directors, sex " therapists, career counselors and personal confidantes. The Jester Resident Assistants became these and a whole lot more. Balancing student individuality and dormitory unity, RAs strove to create a home-away-from-home. Carl W. Deo, RTF-American Studies junior, was an RA for two years. " Jester RAs have a greater sense for individuality yet understand the need for a family community on their floor. " This unity was promoted through social events such as the Beach Blanket Bingo Party that Deo and his residents sponsored, which featured a Burger Burn and a giant Bingo raffle. Along with progam planning, much of an RAs time was spent on a one-to-one basis. Many hours were devoted to counseling residents with personal and academic problems as well as fill- ing out contact sheets and goal-setting forms. Deo said one of his hardest tasks as an RA was to try and change the Jester image. " Jester can be one of the best or worst places to live. It all depends of what you make of it. " To prepare for the fall, students cut their summers short in mid-August to attend the annual fall workshop. At the week-long event, RAs attended seminars and programs that in- SOUNDS LIKE: During a game of charades with other Jester RAs, Eric Gould, psychology senior, conveys " scary.

The RAs started off the fall semester with Welcome Week activities including a Jester- wide tubing trip down the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. Throughout the year, RAs of- fered numerous programs ranging from study skills and time management to a Methods Contraception workshop.

" According to Julia Kanellos, finance junior, the Council in its second year served its purpose well. " A system of committees is set up for all aspects of the job, to make jobs better, to improve working conditions, " Kanellos said. The Council was divided into eight com- mittees: banquet awards and recognition, res- ident assistant selection, professional develop- ment, policies and procedure, newsletter, social, campus community service and fundraising. The RA selection committee chose the new resident assistants for the following year to re- place outgoing staff. The banquet awards and recognition committee recognized the outstand- ing work of fellow RAs at a dinner, May 17. The policies and procedures committee improv- ed the working conditions affecting the ef- ficiency of resident assistants. One of the most important committees on the Council was the professional development committee. Because of their efforts, RAs were able to plan their own workshops, a function formerly held by the Division of Housing and Food Service. The campus-community service committee supplied volunteer workers for the Special Olympics, and finally, the fundraising com- mittee sponsored a stadium cleanup and a Tex- an cleanup for funds to send staff members to the Southwest Association of Resident Assis- tants, SWARA. Kanellos said she " would like to see the Council continue to grow and be a positive influence for resident assistants.

The WRH, one of three branches in the Division of Housing and Food Services, su- pervised five residence halls Kinsolving, Lit- tlefield, Carothers, Andrews and Blanton. Involved in many activities, WRH helped residents whether they were incoming freshmen or outgoing seniors acclimate to the University. " We invited faculty to our pre-registration fair which we held at the beginning of the fall semester. The faculty helped by answering ques- tions about classes and even suggested classes to take, " Lottman said. " We also had the Ombudsman ' s office talk with graduating seniors who are moving out to an apartment for the first time by showing them how to read a lease and what other things they might expect when they go out on their own, " CHECKING IT OUT: Ombudsman David Cook speaks to Kinsolving residents about signing a lease.

" We ' re hoping that this will become an annual event. " Along with social activities, the Women ' s Residence Halls offered a wide range of ed- ucational services for its residents.

' 98 Women ' s Residence Halls IN Dorms celebrate ' A Night in New Orleans ' Association combines dorm formats into one evening at the Texas Union Ballroom Michael Stravato s-s ne of the biggest dorm-wide events spon- = = sored by the University Residence Hall Association, A Night In New Orleans, gave dorm residents one huge semi-formal in- stead of the several smaller ones sponsored by each dorm. The semi-formal was the Asso- ciation ' s most ambitious program to date as over 5000 students were invited. " By com- bining the semi-formals, we hoped to increase turnout and decrease the expense of these par- ties, " Diana Martinez, business junior, said. The Association was an umbrella organization that provided a vehicle for dorm leaders to get to know one another and plan activities among the dorms. Next year however, the Association will be an integral part of dorm life in a new way. Representatives of both the men ' s and women ' s dorm governments relinquished con- trol of dorm funds to the URHA in a move by the Student Housing Division to provide more muscle to the Association ' s efforts. " This new policy requires dorm governments to go to the URHA with their budgets for approval, and provides the organization with an additional source of income from the surplus funds dorms usually carry over to their fall budgets, " David Stevens, drama sophomore, said. The Association also tried to assume a more dominant role in dorm policy through attempts to change some dorm regulations such as vis- iting hours. " The changes we wanted take too long to implement unless they ' re backed by Housing, " Stevens, whose efforts died in com- mittee, said, " but the new influx of capital and influence may change all that. " " The Association will be better able to plan events and programs for the residents with the new budget requirements, " Martinez said. by John Edwards DANCING THE N IGHT AWAY: Dorm residents and their dates enjoy each other ' s company and the music during ' A Night in New Orleans, ' March 4.

According " to Rhonda Dupras, advertising junior, it ' s described as " a place just like home. " " They " are the University ' s Women ' s Co-op houses across from Kinsolving. The 12 houses, six of which are newer and more modern, have a maximum of 20 girls living in each house. Each house is headed by an elected student who lived there the previous semester and is known as the house manager. The house manager ' s duties included col- lecting rent checks, paying bills and monitoring the budget, holding various types of meetings, picking new applicants and serving as liaisons. In exchange for these services, the house man- agers were allowed to live rent-free for their term of office. " Living in the co-ops is better because it allows the girls to be completely responsible for themselves, " Beth Marinucci, government jun- ior, said.

One of the co-ops, Century, hosted a Thanksgiving dinner as the girls took shifts cooking for their friends and boyfriends. Other co-ops sponsored various social and holiday par- ties and gatherings.

Head RA Julian Evans, RTF senior, said, " The Olympics were a real success. It helped people meet others on different floors and to get to know the people on their own floors better. " These activities helped RAs recruit participants for intramural sports as well. Stakes ran even higher at the year ' s big social event, Casino Night, in the dormitory cafeteria, March 4.

It was " something different, not your typical summer job, " Mary Stoops, speech communication junior, said. In the nine-week, eight-session program, the OAs attempted to leave enrolling freshmen with a positive, but realistic impression of their next four years. The program stressed that at a uni- versity this size there is a lot to offer. " We wanted to give them a place at the University, " Stoops said. The future students were not the only ones who needed a little reassurance. Often the orientee ' s parents asked more questions and had the greatest fears. The parents who wanted to stay attended a reception and were introduced to representatives from the student health center, financial aid office and each of the different colleges. The OA ' s discovered more about themselves and the University in the process of helping out the orientees. They learned to adapt, to handle spur of the moment decisions and to deal with different types of people. According to Stoops the friendships were the biggest gain. The OAs spent three days a week with their Orientees and had the next four days for them- selves when they would take road trips to Padre Island or New Orleans. There was one part of the job that the ad- visors didn ' t like moving. After each session advisors had to move to a different room in Jester. According to the OAs, they felt a sense of accomplishment in helping others benefit from their experiences at UT. Referring to the orientees, one permanent staff member said that " what you say is gold to them, they really listen to you. " Stoops recommended applying for the job. She said, " What you put in is what you get out for both orientees and OAs.

THE EYES OF TEXAS: Spirited UT fans turn out for the rally on the Main Mall after the Torchlight Parade October 7. Laura Darby Student board restores the ties that bind University spirit and traditions revival brings campus closer together Si eviving old University traditions and start- s ' ing new ones keyed the work of the Spirit and Traditions Board. Founded in the fall of 1986, Board members brought back lost traditions to boost Longhorn spirit. " Everyone has UT in common, so we try to bring campus closer together, " Board President Jim Nicar, natural sciences senior, said. " A lot of our traditions were lost in the 1960s, " he said. " Student attitudes were di- rected towards rebelling against the ' establishment ' and traditions fell under the establishment. " One of the most popular events returning to campus was the Texas Hex rally. Hundreds of students carrying candles gathered at 11:45 p.m. on the South Mall, November 24, for a pep rally to " hex " the Texas A M Aggies. The ceremony orignallly began in 1941 when a for- tune teller told a group of students that by hexing the Aggies with this rally, A M ' s win- ning record in that series would end. Sure enough, Texas won that game. Reinstituted this year was the Torchlight Parade. On the Wednesday night before the Texas-OU game a group of torchbearers led students from 26th Street and Whitis, along the Drag, down 2 1st Street and then up to the steps of the South Mall. Once there, the cheerleaders led a pep rally. In November, when the Longhorns ' chances of going to the Cotton Bowl began to brighten, Board members began a new tradition. They HOOK ' EM!: Football cheerleaders lead Longhorn revelers in the Texas Fight song on the South mall after the Torchlight Parade. The pre-OU event was revived by the Spirit and Traditions Board. wrapped many of the trees around campus with bright orange ribbon. " We wanted people to show a lot more enthusiasm at the games and to start ' thinking cotton ' , " Board member Nick Sarantakes, history junior, said. They also sponsored rallies for football and special basketball and swimming events. " To find many of the lost traditions, " Nicar said, " we use a couple of different methods like reading old Cactus yearbooks and files at the Barker Texas History Center. Also, University historian Dr. Margaret Berry wrote a book a couple of years ago that has many of the dif- ferent events in it. " Students, faculty, staff and administrators were very receptive to the Board ' s work. " We had a lot of people turn out for our events last year, " Board member Melinda Willis, adver- tising graduate student, said. " But this year even more people knew we existed, so turnout was even better.

In addition to sponsoring the traditional Main Mall fair, the SIC March 2 Committee organized the formation of a giant longhorn on the evening of March 1 . It was formed on the football field by various committee members and stretched for 40 yards. " We thought we would do anything to pro- mote awareness about Texas Independence Day, " Chairman Dean Carter, speech senior, said. " Our main concentration was getting other groups to celebrate Texas Independence. " The Presidents Board, an off-shoot of SIC, was made up of the presidents of various cam- pus organizations. The presidents met regularly with President William Cunningham to discuss campus issues. " Presidents Board has become a good arena for the presidents of groups and a sounding board for President Cunningham, " Carter said. The Washington Internships Program Com- mittee, another SIC group, promoted intern- ships for interested students. The committee expanded its program to cover internships in Austin as well as Washington, D.C. " We ' ve really increased publicity and aware- ness on campus, " committee chairwoman Christine Schaulat, business honors sophomore, said. " We ' ve increased the number of oppor- tunities. " The committee also worked on setting up activities in Washington for UT interns, cre- ating a " Life in DC " pamphlet and establishing a Student Intern Scholarship, which would help fund expenses in Washington. by Nick Saratakes Michael Srravatu PRESIDENTS BOARD: FRONT ROW: Michelle Yvonne Anderson, Shdlie Dawn Hoffman.

We were getting over 1 hard times, namely the budget cuts, " Jerry Thompson, yearbook supervisor, said. " To help us overcome those problems, we tried to find out what was unique about Texas, both the University and the state. " On each page and in every section, from Features to Organizations, staffers tried to dis- cover what made students ' experiences unique this year. " " We began by focusing first on the students themselves, then moved up to the University as a whole, Austin and then to the major cities in Texas: Houston, San Antonio and Dallas, " Steve Engler, advertising senior and yearbook editor, said. " The Cactus was very successful this year in recruiting staff members, " Engler said. " The largest number of students in ten years 28 applied for the 15 available editorial positions. We had a larger pool of applicants to choose from so we ended up with a very qualified USER FRIENDLY: Lisa Moyers, marketing sophomore, practices her TypeVision programming skills in the Cactus office. editorial staff. " In September over 85 students were selected to staff the various sections. Due to its greater capability, the large staff eased the workload for the section editors and ensured a higher quality book. Several different colleges were represented on staff, including liberal arts, business and natural sciences. " When recruiting staffers, we didn ' t target just communications students. We invited other members of the various schools because it ' s the University ' s book, " Engler said. Lisa Moyers, marketing sophomore, said working on the Cactus was a new and interesting experience for her. " Yearbook is something I haven ' t done before, something new to learn. I cover organizations that I ' m interested in like many of the business groups. Organization page sales increased as well. By contacting every student club registered with the Student Activities Office, many groups that had not been represented before bought pages. The importance of teamwork and the ne- cessity of increasing the number of staffers and page sales were among the items presented at the annual editorial workshop held the first weekend of September at the University-owned Winedale Historical Center near Round Top.

The Texas experience " It (the setting) made us more comfortable with each other and it put us in the right frame of mind to face the year, " Tracy Peeters, Plan II sophomore and yearbook copy editor, said. Outside activities including intramural sports, a staff picnic and section editor scavenger hunts gave all members of the staff a chance to break away from the stress of spending many hours in the office. Taylor Publishing Company enabled the staff to make an important change during the year in the way that copy was processed. Eight com- puters, provided by Taylor, used the TypeVi- sion program which was designed specifically for yearbook copy production. Thompson said the computers provided a different and more effective way of producing pages. " The program made it possible to trans- mit to Taylor, by disk, instead of on paper, as before, all characters for each page. This lessened the possibility of human error which was so important because we strived for accuracy in every aspect of the book.

KTSB rides the Austin waves UT radio goes on-air after a long, two-year struggle 55 s his has been like running in a very long = marathon, " KTSB station manager Kevin " Tuerff, organizational communication se- nior, said. " You ' re excited that you were able to finish (the race) but you ' re also really tired. " Tuerff and many others finally saw their dream of having a student-run radio station at UT become a reality. On Monday, April 11, KTSB officially went on the air at 7 a.m. from a small back room in the old Varsity Cafeteria. " It was incredible, " Tuerff said of the sta- tion ' s first day, " no hitches, no problems the whole thing was very smooth. The dee-jays played music, sports and newscasters did their thing, but the most exciting moment for me was on Friday (before the station went on the air) when 1 heard the first signal come over the air; I went outside my house and jumped up and down in the street. " " This station is unique, " KTSB sports di- rector Rob Stevens, business junior, said. " There ' s an enthusiasm here that ' s unparalled by any other group on campus. " " It ' s a great way to get experience right in my own back yard, " executive producer of sports Chrisann Parr, broadcast journalism junior, said. " It ' s also unique to be a charter member in something like this. I was there when the ' cast ' went on the air ... this is something I ' m really going to enjoy watching grow. " Parr said that team work, as with all new organizations, was the cause for the station ' s success. " We have staff members calling in all the time to give us updates on news and sports we don ' t ask for that, our own people just initiate that kind of action, " she said. The station also provided alternative music for its listeners. As Parr said, " A lot of people like KTSB because we provide an alternative to the Austin music and college underground rock. A lot of people called in and said, ' Hey, that ' s great! We never hear that kind of music on other Austin stations. ' We are going to focus on the Austin artists and since we ' re in Austin, why not? " Parr said the station ' s first day was both exciting and almost ' error ' free. " At one point, some old guy came wandering in thinking our studio was still the Varsity Cafeteria and wanted to know where the donuts were, " she said. " That was all people talked about for the rest of the day. When people stop coming in and asking ' Is this the Varsity? Has it reopened? ' we ' ll know we ' ve finally been established in Austin.

" You just do the best you can . . . if you have a lot of things to do, (that interest you) you can always find the time, " Cotton said. The yearbook covered many events through- out the school year from the traditional Fall Drunk, held either the weekend before or after Halloween, to improvements within the law school to the annual Mock Trials. One of the most important aspects of the yearbook featured the many distinguished speakers that lectured throughout the year. " Speakers are a big deal, " Cotton said, " because JJ m m i 7 Traci Graves Cotton, Anna Margaret Brooks John Fox won h most law organizations are interested specifically in one area of law. " After all the yearbook aspects were covered and following all the descriptions of the book, one question remained. What exactly is a Per- egrinus? According to Cotton, the Peregrinus is the law school ' s mascot and a combination of many symbolic animal characteristics. " Its sharp beak is used to penetrate the mysteries of the law while the arched back represents the ability to spring forward to pro- tect justice. The hind quarters of a dog indicate that the law is man ' s best friend, " Cotton said. Peregrinus wears boxing gloves on its hind quarters to show legal power while worker ' s boots on the front feet represent legal protection to the common man. The bushy tail clears away any legal technicalities that impede the progress of justice. After the lengthy description of the Per- egrinus, Cotton summarized the animal ' s fea- tures.

Giving them away for free Utmost distributes promotional issue to gain readers s 5 tmost Magazine did something a little dif- s ferent this year. To promote readership, especially among incoming freshmen, 2000 copies of Utmost were printed during the summer and distributed at adds and drops and on the West Mall. Editor Beau Barton, English junior, said he hoped that the special edition would pay for itself over the long run and help decide whether printing three magazines a semester, instead of the current two, would be feasible. According to Barton, the special issue was designed to show students what Utmost was about so that they would be more likely to buy it when the first regular edition arrived in October. The magazine was something staff members wanted students to discuss on their way to class, " and we believe that ' s just what will happen, " Barton said. Geared towards incoming freshmen, the spe- cial 28-page edition featured stories listing the ten easiest classes at UT, " The Ten Command- ments of Freshman Survival " and a history of the student magazine at the University. It in- cluded regular fare as well such as personal sketches, feature articles and notes about area politics. TSP also tested the feasibility of issuing the magazine six times a year, instead of the stan- dard four. By producing additional issues Bar- ton said that the magazine would run more smoothly, would be of a higher quality and would have a higher visibility. Though it was unlikely that three issues would continue to be printed a semester due to costs and time consumption, Jean Pietrobono, TSP marketing director and magazine super- Michael Sttava TAKING A BREAK: Utmost Editor Beau Banon, Englis junior, looks through a past issue. visor, said that there did seem to be an increas in subscriptions, though it could not be at tributed directly to the promotional issue.

No, these words did not describe firemen, drug smugglers or Australian Rules football players, but were meant for TSP Photographers. Comprised of 1 5 hardy men and women, members of the photography department found themselves in minor scrapes about as often as they processed black and white film. For Jeff Holt, over exposure to a ceiling fan was just part of the job during one assignment. He was shooting group candids at a local club and, in order to picture the whole group, climbed on top of a bar. As he climbed down, an irate ceiling fan requested a personal photo session and broke his nose. It was " definitely the most painful " photo shift tor Holt. On assignment in Central Mexico for Utmost, Michael Stravato, photojournalism junior, dis- covered that what could have been a vacation was actually somewhat dangerous work. " It was a straightforward trip, but I got brushed by a car in a dark tunnel, " he said. For Tom Stevens, photojournalism junior, a night in a Dallas jail was the result of an assignment gone awry during OU Weekend. Stevens was trying to get pictures for The Daily Texan of people being arrested for public in- toxication on Commerce Street. When police- told him to move on down the road, intrepid Stevens kept the film advancing. He soon found himself on the other side of the lens. Although he had consumed only one beer a couple of hours before the assignment, he was arrested for public intoxication. According to darkroom supervisor Danny Byram, RTF senior, the police mistook Stevens easy-going attitude for intoxication. " He s a real low-key guy, " Byram said. After a night in jail, Stevens was bailed out by other photographers. He took the case to court, and in April all charges were dropped. Not every shift resulted in such drastic action. Although photographers could expect bruises from mob-like rallies on the West Mall or filthy clothing from local fires, most assignments were ordinary group shots, parties and candids. But there were also the memorable times. Holt covered the Pakistani Students ' As- sociation banquet and was " taken aback by the different costumes " worn by the women. He said their outfits looked wonderful on film. The students would not let Holt leave until he had dined with them. " They served tra- ditional Pakistani food which was delicious, " he said. Echoing the feelings of most photographers, Stravato said that even though his job did not involve constant adventure, everyday " I ' m glad I ' m doing it. " He questioned further, " I work for a college paper and a goofy yearbook, how close to death could I get? " by Jennifer Stephens Jeff Hull, Frank Rey Ofjunu.

Predominant changes occured influencing the Student Radio Task Force and the TSP Hand- book of Operating Procedures. The panel adopt- ed KTSB into TSP and renovated membership requirements for board positions. A handbook revision committee created and presented these changes to the Board which then reviewed the requests. The Board adopted many of the changes and sent them to the Board of Regents for approval. Changes within the TSP handbook affected students who wished to join the Board in the future. The revisions expanded the field of students who could be elected. " No longer will the elections to the TSP Board be restricted to journalism and advertising majors. These re- visions will allow more students to join the TSP Board, " Board member Kim Baker, journalism senior, said.

After meeting individually with task force members and looking over surveys, the voting members of the Board officially passed the proposal and accepted student radio. A change was necessary in the Declaration of Trust to include electronic media and was of- ficially accepted at the December 3 Board of Regents meeting.

Staff members supported these publications by paying the bills through advertising sales. Faced with declining business and a tighter economy, the staff changed to more resourceful and aggressive business practices to increase sales. To increase the sale of advertising, the staff closely monitored the local business picture for grand openings of new stores. Then they con- tacted the corporation headquarters and presented the advantages of being in University publications, advertising representative Eliza- beth Kay Carpenter, advertising and marketing graduate student, said. Once customers were found, the staff pro- fessionally aided their customers by providing well-designed ads to a large reading audience. " The group worked hard in addition to going to school, " Bill Brown, retail advertising manager " ' said. Composed of 18 to 24 students, the staff included communication and non- communication majors. Chris Wilson, adver- tising senior, said working in advertising sales was " a convenient and great opportunity to gain experience while getting an education. Anyone who needs to learn salesmanship can get it because this is direct selling. " The diverse backgrounds of the staff helped to add interest and creativity to both the work and the group. According to Carpenter, the different backgrounds broaden staffers ' views in many areas. " The backgrounds can be negative on some points but it just depends on how dedicated and motivated the staff member is. At the same time it helps to bring in different perspectives, " she said. by Christine Heart FRONT ROW: Elizabeth Kay Carpenter, Kristen Denene Gilbert, Betty Anne Ellis, Deborah Lee Bannworth, Zachary Steven Sherman, Michael Dean Eachus SECOND ROW: Virginia Marie PadUla.

Gary Kanadjian John Foxworth Business office promotes team philosophy A concentrated group effort spells success for publication management teams - verseeing the business aspects of Texas = Student Publications, the TSP Business " Office utilized a team approach to best carry out their many duties. Functions such as business production, cir- culation, marketing and promotion required concentrated group efforts. According to Gen- eral Manager Richard Lytle, TSP management teams met periodically depending on the issue frequency of each publication. Teams were made up of key individuals from the various publications. Members looked over their particular publication from every angle to see if everything was running smoothly. Any problems were then solved according to the team ' s decisions. Using the team approach, all key persons of the editing and non-editing staff joined to share new ideas, make concensus decisions and give advice without sacrificing each other ' s authority. " We manage TSP together, " Lytle said. " It is important that everyone talks to each other. " TSP was affected by outside problems as well. According to Lytle, " The state ' s economical slump and the increase in taxes had a deletarious effect on the sale of Cactus Yearbooks. " In order to deal with the economical prob- lems, TSP surveyed the present economical en- vironment and attempted to adjust to it. This adjustment occurred by reassigning responsi- bilities, cutting the budget and buying a new in- house library system to avoid the costs of con- tracting this service. Although TSP publications were sometimes criticized for lack of coverage on certain issues, Lytle said, " We need to appreciate what we have. " " It may be true that certain issues are skipped due to lack of space or interest. Some- times we get isolated and don ' t realize what we do have because we have nothing to compare it to. The Texan is probably one of the top three to five student newspapers in the country. The same can be said of the Cactus Yearbook and Utmost Magazine.

The Student Health Center Peer Instructors, though, were organized to possibly answer students ' questions and provide accurate information. The Alcohol Awareness program, founded in the spring of 1986, consisted of workshops and informal discussions. " We saw that many stu- dents were not getting either enough or the right kind of information concerning alcohol and its effects, " peer instructor coordinator Sherry Bell said. " The workshops don ' t preach abstinence or the use of alcohol. They prompt students to think about how and why they use alcohol, " she said. Teams of two instructors gave presentations in residence halls and at fraternity and sorority houses. They coordinated an education outreach program during National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week and participated in the Stu- dent Health Center ' s annual Health Fair. Each workshop included the pros, cons, myths and facts about drinking, the formula for pacing intake and a group discussion about what constituted responsible alcohol use. According to some peer instructors, the pro- gram did effect students. " After presentations, some students came up to us and wanted to discuss individual problems they have with al- cohol. They open up because they see that someone is willing to help them, " peer in- structor John Pilati, journalism junior, said. In the fall, instructors taught more than 50 classes reaching over 800 people. A second group of instructors focused their efforts on informing people about methods of contraception. " The basis for the class is to help students make informed decisions regarding contraception, " Bell said. Classes were taught at the Student Health Center and by request in the residence halls and greek houses. One class was geared strictly to- ward women and another was co-ed. Instructors discussed all available methods, the positive and negative aspects of each and the reliability of the different methods. Instructors also served as guest lecturers in selected ac- ademic classes such as Human Sexuality. They presented the lectures in an unbiased way so that each student could make his or her own decision based on all the available facts. They had a variety of reasons for becoming peer instructors. Many were pre-med students and used the program to gain clinical experience while others wanted to develop their presen- tation skills. " I read about the program on a flyer. It appealed to me because of my involvement with my fraternity, " Pilati said. " I ' ve seen people misuse alcohol and I thought it was a great approach to educating students on how to be responsible with alcohol, " he said. " Bad habits that form in college have a tendency to continue later. " " I attended a presentation in my dorm and I was so impressed. It was factual and totally unbiased. They strictly gave information with- out preaching.

The Cold Clinic was set up to shorten patients ' waiting time and educate them on preventive measures. The Cold Clinicians were volunteers who assisted the doctors and nurse practitioners with the process of diagnosing and counseling the students who came in. The juniors and seniors who staffed the clinic were predominately pre-med students who worked to gain experience in clinical medicine and health education. " I became a volunteer to get some experience dealing with patients, " Robert Hoang, biochemstry senior, said. Before they began their work, the student volunteers attended a week long workshop and then staffed the clinic the following fall and spring semesters. The main responsibilities of the volunteers were to take the blood pressure, temperature, respiration and pulse of patients. Hoang said the staffers rarely caught in- fections from the ill students. " It ' s not a prob- lem if you wash your hands frequently and then keep both hands from your face and mouth, " he said. The students with serious cases were routed to a doctor or nurse practitioner. Nurses sug- gested over the counter medications for students with uncomplicated respiratory infections and then the clinician counseled him or her on preventive measures and ways to recognize the symptoms. " It gives our volunteers really good experience and saves a lot of time for the stu- dents who come in, " Bell said. by Bridget Metzger Student Health Center 217 oil tics B = anning phones, distributing flyers, hang- s ss ing signs and recruiting voters, Univer- sity of Texas students were active in Austin politics during the 1987-1988 election year, helping such local candidates as Lee Cooke (Austin Mayor), Jeanne Meurer (98th District Judge), and Sam Briscoe (County Commis- sioner). Getting students involved in local cam- paigns was a primary goal for the various po- litical organizations on campus during the busy election year. " The best way to get folks involved is to make them realize that there is definitely a payoff for their work, " Chairman of the Young Conservatives of Texas Patrick O ' Daniel, busi- ness-accounting junior, said. " If you have twen- ty people sittting around and they are able to talk and work, it ' s a good way to make friends and learn about ' grass roots ' politics. " The University Democrats and the Young Conservatives of Texas, two of the most po- litically active organizations on campus, strove to involve their members in local campaigning. Both organizations worked together to register voters prior to Super Tuesday. The University Democrats targeted 20-25 precincts around campus and distributed 20,000 door hangers and flyers. The group also worked for two weeks at a phone bank to enlist support for the two UD-endorsed candidates, Jeanne Meurer and Sam Briscoe, both of whom were involved in the Super Tuesday run-off. Student political involvement was not con- fined to the campaign headquarters of students ' favorite candidates, however. Candidates were brought to campus to speak, allowing students to form their own opinions about issues. Dem- ocratic speakers included Jim Hightower, Jesse Students stay close to horn Political involvement in 1988 election extends to more than just the presidential candidates Robert Kir Drawing from a broad base of over members, the University Democrats and the YCT were important factors in the drive to increase student awareness and involvement in area elections.

" The Young Conservatives will continue to focus on issues and the education of the student body, " O ' Daniel said. " We are pleased with the level of activity this year and we feel it will continue. " Working for a local candidate had its ad- vantages too.

" We continued to promote funding for higher education, " TSL director James Aldrete, Plan II senior, said. " We promoted favorable financial aid bills in the special session. " TSL, formed when the Students ' Association was abolished in 1978, lobbied members of the legislature on issues concerning state higher ed- ucation, Aldrete said. " Our credibility is the reliable information that we provide, " Aldrete said. " Most members of the legislature were re- ceptive to TSL, " lobby member Mark Strain, Plan II junior, said. " Representatives, regents and all the like, surprisingly welcome input from students. " When the special session was over, members of the TSL formulated a list of " Top Ten Friends of Students " in the Texas Legislature. The ten included only one republican and was divided evenly between senators and representatives. Senator Gonzalo Barrientos (D-Austin) was listed for his efforts on anti-hazing bills while Representative Wilhelmina Delco (D-Austin) was mentioned for her work on comprehensive education reforms. " The TSL chose members who went out of their way to protect student interests, " board member Siva Vaidhyanathan, history senior, said. Strain said most of the time legislators only see students when they were protesting some- thing. " Constructive input on policy decision involving students was readily accepted. " According to Aldrete, many members of the legislature knew what it was like for TSL mem- bers. " A lot of representatives were student activists, " he said. Past successes of TSL, as Aldrete said, in- cluded helping to pass the anti-hazing bill, establishing the installment plan for tuition pay- ments and keeping the power to raise tuition in the hands of the legislature, Aldrete said. f i y I ON BEHALF OF STUDENTS: State Senator Gonz- Barrientus, D-Austin, was lauded by the TSL at the end the 1987 special session for supporting student issues.

" A lot of conservative students are deciding to be vocal and are now expressing their be- liefs, " O ' Daniel said. Although a suprising number of YCT members were graduate stu- dents and came from the College of Liberal Arts, there was no clear cut majority among those reverting to conservatism. In regard to the rise in numbers of con- servatives, O ' Daniel said that " conservatism is a populist movement in that it appeals to ide- alistic college students who want to get active and change the world.

Young Conservatives of Texas 22 1 Volunteers, program specialists make the difference SHARE increases retention tudents Helping Admissions in the j-s Recruitment Effort, SHARE, was an " active campus presence for nearly 1 5 years, with success evidenced by the increasing num- ber of minority students admitted to UT. " Although our program is completely funded and supported by the University, " program specialist Stephanie Goodman, liberal arts se- nior, said, " the real success of SHARE is de- pendent upon our volunteers, program special- ists and the enthusiasm of the minority students that we contact for recruitment. " According to Goodman, SHARE ' S primary goals were to introduce and recruit blacks and Hispanics to the University. " Through minority recruitment programs such as UT Day and UT Bound, SHARE program specialists and student volunteers are able to introduce minority high school students to the University on a first hand basis, " she said. The main thrust of the recruitment effort occured when high school students visited the campus. However, efforts to attract students began well before the admissions deadline as SHARE workers made up to 200 calls per week to targeted students. Telephone contact was the mainstay of the SHARE effort, but Goodman said that during the 1987-88 recruitment year SHARE extended their reach to high school freshmen. " We ' ve found that actual contact between a University student and a high school freshman provides the freshman with an impetus and a goal, " Goodman said. Once contact was established, SHARE work- ers extended invitations to attend UT Day and UT Bound. " Programs such as these, " Patricia Parker, SHARE director, said, " enable pro- spective students to experience University life by being housed in dorms for a weekend, taking tours of campus and attending fireside chats with various faculty members and mentors. " According to Parker, fireside chats provided a comfortable environment for students to ask questions and for SHARE workers to dispel anxieties students may have had about UT. Parker also said SHARE played an integral role in recognizing blacks and Hispanics cur- rently enrolled at UT. " Our T.A. Day is a minority awards program for those students who have received the Texas Achievement Hon- ors Award for Academic Excellence, " she said. Although the number of SHARE workers was near 160, Goodman said that their presence " is not very well known on campus, " but that " campus recognition isn ' t important. What ' s important is that we ' ve affected the lives of minority students from across the nation by letting them know that we ' ll always be here to better their educational opportunities.

CAMPUS INTRODUCTION: Lcadinj; a campus tour Roger MefcadOi honors business sophomore, answers ques lions from visiting high school students Nov. 13. SHARK 223 Proposal makes Cabinet Chair SA executive officer Senate changes constitution = he news issue of the year for the Senate E involved the proposed Students ' Association " constitution. A rather rapid adoption was started at the Student Senate meeting, Jan. 26, by SA President Randi Shade, Plan II senior, and Cabinet of College Councils Chairman Mi- chael Cohen, Plann II senior, when they in- troduced the new constitution. The constitution called for several changes in the Association, the most important involving the Chairman of the Cabinet. At the time, the two bodies were parallel but separate forms of student government. By making the Cabinet Chairman a Students ' Association executive of- ficer, both groups increased their power bases. " The move gives the Cabinet legitimacy and effectively creates one student government, " Shade said. During their meeting, Feb. 9, sen- ators voted 25-8 to place the new constitution on the ballot. There were other significant changes resulting from the adoption of the new constitution. To better imply the offices ' responsibilities, the senators became known as representatives and the Student Senate was to be called the Student Assembly. In regard to special elections, the Assembly would designate a date each semester for these elections to be held, rather than hold- ing one each time a seat became vacant. " The old way was just too expensive, " Shade said. When these changes were finally placed be- fore the students during run-off elections, May 9, 88% of students voting approved the new constitution. In other senate business, the SA approved funding for a variety of student activities. KTSB, a part of the SA before joining Student Publications, received several thousand dollars for studio construction and their FM frequency search. Association members pledged both funding and their time for the Think Loud spirit campaign for the football team, the (LAC ' s) Schlafly-Weddington debate, The UD ' s Jesse Jackson speech, NOWs Rape Awareness Week, and GLSA ' s Gay Lesbian Awareness Week. by Nick Sarantakes GETTING STARTED: SA members mingle before the opening of the Senate meeting, March 8.

Normally the Stu- dents ' Association holds only one election |in the Spring. This year was different. A special election was held, Nov. 18, to fill [five empty seats in the Student Senate. Like any ther student elections at the University this one iid not occur without controversy. On Nov. 13, SA Attorney General Martin Siegel, Plan II senior, concluded a GPA check and found two senators were below the constitutionally man- dated minimum GPA of 2.5; both were dis- missed from the Senate. However, neither vacant seat was filled dur- ing the special election. SA Judicial Chairwom- an Lisa Brown, second-year law student, told The Daily Texan that it was a matter of timing. " The bottom line is, we can ' t fill a seat in an election when there ' s only two days notice to the student body that the seat is open, " Brown said. In the special election, Patrick O ' Daniel, hon- ors business-accounting junior, was elected to fill the open business seat, and graduate students David Ritchie, second-year law and public af- fairs student, and Meg Brooks, second-year law student, were elected to fill two of the open seats for the graduate school. Less than one semester later the Association held its regular spring elections. The campaign lasted two weeks and students voted March 2 and 3. A runoff election was forced in both the presidential and vice-presidential races.

SA representatives on the Student prvices Fee Committee supported the new |iuttle bus contract with Capitol Metro, whose uses would be equipped with wheelchair lifts. Alcohol Awareness Week was its biggest yet li over 50 student groups participated. Various impus organizations did their part to educate their members about alcohol. In conjunction with the nationally-televised Super Tuesday Debate, the SA funded the Stu- dent Primary Forum in Dallas. Students from all over the country went to watch the debate from an adjoining studio and were able to directly question candidates. After registering over 13,000 people during the Voter Registration Drive, the SA was rec- ognized by the Texas Voter Action Project as the organization that registered the most voters in Austin. One of the " best kept secrets on campus " came closer to being fully revealed as the SA worked in conjunction with the Liberal Arts Council and other organizations to centralize the three existing Student Abroad branches into one main location in the International Office. Groundwork was laid for the Minority In- formation Center, an office that would be de- voted to concerns of minority students. " One of the reasons it ' s been created is out of our concern for the low retention rate of minority students at UT, " engineering senator James Ray, electrical engineering senior, said. " We ' re on our way to fiscal independence, " Polis Magazine editor Gail Levine, Plan II soph- omore, said. The staff printed two issues and made plans to publish on a regular basis during the 1988-89 year.

After surmounting hardships, red tape and much waiting, KTSB looked forward to air time in the spring semester. " It was students who initiated it and backed it, " SRTF vice chairwoman Sara Beechn er, RTF senior, said. Aiding in the radio quest, the Texas Student Publications Board of Operating Trustees voted unanimously, Sept. 17, to bring the station, then a Students ' Association agency, under the wing of TSP. KTSB planned to broadcast on Austin CableVision as audio background to a com- munity access station until an FM frequency became available, while members planned to apply to the Federal Communications Com- mission for a frequency. SRTF chairman Kevin Tuerff, organizational communication senior, estimated the start-up and first-year costs for the station would be $29,000. In September, AT T granted SRTF $5,000 which would help alleviate these costs. MAKING HIS POINT: SRTF Chairman Kevin Tuerff, organizational communication senior, addresses group members during the December 8 meeting. After waiting and delaying the broadcast date, the Board of Regents met Dec. 3 to decide if the station fit the definition of a publication. After the Board determined that KTSB was a publication, Task Force members began new projects: studio construction, a frequency search and the purchase of broadcast equipment. Studio construction involved renovating 900 square feet of the old Varsity Cafeteria. Com- pletion was originally scheduled for Dec. 23 but P ' jrL marajrxn : ing, " Lk tp Iw was pushed back to early April.

" The 1 1th Annual L ' adership Institute was a e day seminar, No i. 7, designed for in- dividuals interested in developing leadership skills. Workshops, presented by Leadership Board members in 20-minute sessions, focused on such topics as " Idea Generation and Group Motivation, " and " Motivation and Delega- tion. " Special Advanced Sessions were offered for college students already in leadership po- sitions. The three and one-half hour workshops covered " Leadership Style Analysis " and " Position Dilemmas: Problems Leaders Face. " The day ' s keynote speaker was Sarah Wed- dington. She spoke on the importance of de- veloping leadership skills at the college level. Throughout the year, the Board worked with various University organizations to help them function more effectively. The group existed solely to help University organizations enhance leadership skills. " If a group thinks they are having problems with their meetings or if they feel they aren ' t as organized as they should be, we sit through one of their meetings and then provide them with feedback, " Wood said. " Our Board members are highly motivated and enjoy helping others in leadership positions, " Wood said. Board members also developed a program aimed at high schools.

Rivalry between the SA and the Cabinet in past semesters had rendered working together virtually impossible. " This is the first year both groups have worked effectively together, " Chairman of the Cabinet Michael Cohen, Plan II senior, said. In a joint project with the SA, the Cabinet expressed its unanimous support of a revised constitution, a move by both groups to better working relations between members by means of a more formal link between the two student government bodies.

Cohen said the chairman had the necessary ties with the administration to bring important issues to the attention of students. Some of the problems addressed by the Cab- inet included those issues of concern to the University ' s graduate students. Comprised of about one-third graduates, the Cabinet held monthly meetings to address such complaints as the lack of graduate housing near campus and the possibility of tuition hikes by the University for graduate courses.

Comprised of the presidents of each of the College of Business Administration ' s student organizations, the Assembly served as a forum for brainstorming and feedback for the organ- izational presidents. During the fall, the Assembly inked a formal and historic committment to exposing student views and becoming a more powerful voice within the College. " We ' re unabashedly committed to making the hierarchy of the College of Business Ad- ministration more cognizant of student views, " Assembly president Adam Goodman, manage- ment sophomore, said. With the creation and submission of a For- mal Statement of Purpose, the CBA Presidential Assembly moved ahead to what Goodman said would be a better representation of the CBA student body. " We ' ve become quite controversial through our opinions and involvement with CBA pol- icy, " Goodman said. " Because we directly rep- resent over 2000 students, P.A. is working to become a stronger representative voice to the administration. We will have a representative on the Undergraduate Policy Committee who will report directly to P.A. This will open our lines of communication to the deans. " " However, " Goodman also said, " after the initial transition process of exposing our cred- ibility as a voice of the college, the CBA student body will see an alternate and more repre- sentative force than what is currently in ex- istence within the college. " A dean ' s roundtable in which the Presidential Assembly met with the CBA administration was held i " n the home of one of the deans, Dec. 8. It was the primary source of direct and open communication between the Assembly and CBA policy makers, but Goodman said that the creation of the group ' s Formal Statement of Purpose would also increase relations between the two bodies. " Besides representing students ' interests, P.A. will act as a coordinator for all the activities of all the organizations, making sure that there are no conflicting times and no duplication of effort, " Goodman said. " This year has marked a significant and dramatic move on the part of the CBA Pres- idential Assembly to create a greatly improved link between the organizations, student body and administration of the College of Business Administration.

Anticipating the competition ' s moves to strive for the top required an extra edge. The usiness Council did just that during the ar, trying to aid business students in their iest for success. The council ' s main objective was to serve as a ik between students, faculty and the business Immunity. " People on the council regardless of |ieir strengths and weaknesses are very effective providing a service for the students, " council Jpresentative Brad Guest, honors business jun- fr, said. These services ranged from keeping students liformed with the bi-monthly newsletter, Pro- vectus, to bringing employers and executives in |jie business community to campus. To help students drive for success, the council s $ litiated BMW, Business Majors Workshop, hich brought together business faculty from each department and undergraduates to discuss requirements and job opportunities. According to Guest, the program was very beneficial to underclassmen. " One of the coun- cil ' s weaknesses was that it tended to focus on programs more for upper division rather than freshmen, " he said. Turning their attention to graduates, the council sponsored Graduate Week in a joint venture with the Liberal Arts Council and the Pre-Law Association. More than 50 graduate and MBA schools, set up on the West Mall, provided graduate information to UT students. Included in the week of events were mock GMAT, GRE and LSAT exams. Representatives from the Stanley Kaplan Testing Center hosted a workshop on getting into an MBA program and thus encouraged students to ask questions and receive tips on application procedures and interview tech- niques. Continuing to give their students the edge, the council sponsored its biggest project, Busi- ness Week, during the spring. The theme, Win- dow to the Future, brought 100 executives into classrooms to talk with students about the busi- ness world and featured keynote speaker Hugh Liedek, Chairman of Pennzoil. Students could meet with other executives outside the classroom at several receptions host- ed by the council. Business Week also allowed students to interact with the business com- munity, while establishing contacts and future job opportunities. Providing multiple services, the council con- tinued to live up to its motto: Business is our Business. by Randy Adams Business Council 233 Council members ' clean-up efforts bring in the dough teSB== = HiniJPfil i =i Day in the sun raises money 5 = = arm weather is perfect for a car wash, but ssss for the Communication Council it was perfect for making money, too.

Several mixers were sponsored throughout the year by the Student-Faculty Committee to bring students and faculty together in a social setting. The committee also initiated " Faculty Pals " which matched each council member with one or more faculty members. Students were responsible for bringing their faculty pals to mixers, informing them of upcoming council events and recognizing their birthdays. The council ' s biggest event of the year was Comm Week. Held during the second week of April, each day was devoted to a different department in the college: journalism, adver- tising, radio-television-film and speech. Stu- dents could attend speeches, workshops and panel discussions, as well as mingle with pro- fessionals in their chosen fields.

Panel members Mario Benitez, Chairman of Curriculum and Instruction, Roger Williams, Assistant to the Dean and state legislator Terri Heller participated in the debate which at times became quite heated. Not only beneficial to students, the council was also well-respected by education faculty. According to Benitez, the council gave students and faculty a voice for their ideas. " If we did not have the Education Council, we would have to create one, " Benitez said. " The members of the council are not at all shy about voicing their concerns. This is important for us as faculty, so we can ensure that their UT diplomas really have meaning to them.

Students question two liberal arts representatives at the Liberal Arts Council ' s Study Abroad Fair, March 9. Over 4,000 students attended the event. Robert Kirkham Schlafly, Weddington clash Debate ensues over women ' s employment opportunities ss wo of the nation ' s most vocal women ' s E activists, Phyllis Schlafly and Sarah Wed- " dington, came together in a two-hour de- bate, Nov. 23, to discuss the feminist move- ment ' s past effects on women. Sponsored by the Liberal Arts Council, the discussion, followed by a question and answer session, drew listeners from all over the city. The Performing Arts Center was filled to near- capacity for the event. Schlafly, a syndicated columnist and author of several books addressing conservative issues, discussed the effects and problems of affirmative action and comparable worth. She called af- firmative action an unnecessary program that gave jobs to women who may not have been qualified for those jobs. Weddington, a senior lecturer in government, was well-known for successfully arguing for GO AWAY! Edward Ziomkoski, Syracuse University rep- resentative, speaks with Tracey Boone, communications freshman, about various Study Abroad programs available through his school. Both were taking part in the Liberal Arts Council ' s Study Abroad Fair in the FAC lobby, March 9. The council had a large role in centralizing the offices on campus which advised students on the different study abroad opportunities. abortion in the 1973 Supreme Court case, Roe vs. Wade. A supporter of both affirmative action and comparable worth, Weddington said they benefitted women in the long run. She said that affirmative action helped change employers ' at- titudes regarding the hiring of women and minorities. Perhaps in some instances, she said, the plan did give jobs to under-qualified applicants, but that may have been necessary to reverse previous hiring discrimination. The two women were brought together as the highlight of the council ' s " Directions in Wom- anhood " series. " It was our most important event this year, " chairwoman Kim Monday, pre-med senior, said. " The women sparked con- troversy and encouraged people to think about the issues presented. " During the year, the council also established a more complete placement office for liberal arts students. " We ' re the largest college on campus. I think we should be able to help our future graduates more with finding a job, " Monday said. by Bridget Metzger Liberal Arts Council ; GETTING IT TOGETHER: Two Pharmacy students participate in a skit during the Pharmacy Follies held in Burdine Auditorium at the end of Parents Day, April 9.

And it ' s true, the parents had a blast, too. For the benefit of parents wondering about their childrens ' futures, Parents Day began with a general assembly as the Assistant Deans of the College discussed placement, working condi- tions and job opportunities in the pharmacy profession. Then the parents trooped from class- room to classroom, attending 20 minute mini- lectures given by pharmacy professors. " We wanted the parents to get a feel for what their sons and daughters go through in college, " Jenkins said. Most of the parents left with a new view of their student ' s school work. Over 300 parents showed up for the Day and stayed on for special events such as Pharmacy Follies, a talent show presented after Parents Day. The council could successfully organize special events like Parents Day because of the wide range of members in its ranks. The council also sponsored the First Semester Party. Every organization participated in an extended orientation for new pharmacy stu- dents, guiding these fledgling pharmacists into the social world of their new college. " The Pharmacy Council is not like other college councils, " Jenkins said. " We bring to- gether the students with the faculty and the student organizations. " Most of the council members are the presidents and leaders of other pharmacy student organizations in addition to several elected rep resentatives. The cohesiveness achieved by this type of organization brought the pharmacy students together in what was already a close-knit college. by John Edwards 2 48 Pharmacy Council Tech Fair takes students into the business world Council gives helping hand larmacy,- Janice Jacobs or natural science students, the Natural Sciences Council was there to help.

Composed of 70 to 80 members, the Council was grouped into eight standing committees and was one of the largest student councils on the University of Texas campus. As one of the largest committees on the Council, The Tech Fair Committee sponsored the highlight of the year, Tech Fair, an event which the council would like to further develop. " We would like to see this grow, as it was new this year, " Shalini Reddy said. The Tech Fair invited several companies to speak about their operations and job oppor- tunities. The committee also collected resumes from students, serving as a placement center for students interested in programs highlighted at the fair. Although the Tech Fair required a great deal of time and effort, this event represented only a fraction of the activities sponsored by Council BROCHURE PLEASE?: Students examine what com- panies have to offer at the Tech Fair. committees.

The Study Abroad Committee en- couraged overseas programs by creating a cen- tralized data base of study trips for quick ref- erence. The Constitution Committee attended to amendment or reconstruction of the council constitution. Twice a year, the Catalyst Committee pub- lished the Catalyst, the newsletter of the council and the college. Like similar programs in other college councils, the Big Brother Committee matched lower division students with upper division students who provided invaluable in- formation on university life.

Natural Sciences Council 239 Job fair eases seniors ' pre-graduation anxieties Expo ' exposes ' opportunity ss here is a period of anxiety, uncertainty and E sometimes confusion during one aspect of college life job interviewing. The Stu- dent Engineering Council sponsored the En- gineering Exposition during the fall semester to help reduce problems students faced preparing for a career before graduation. The Exposition was a career fair which 46 different companies attended. According to Council president Danielle Sanborn, petroleum engineering senior, the program was so popular that the group had a waiting list of other companies wishing to attend. The expo sition allowed companies to show students what proj- ects they were involved in and to develop name identification with the students. " These are basically the same people who will be coming back to recruit later in the semester, " Sanborn said. " They (students) are not pres- sured at all, it ' s not at all like an interview. " More importantly, the Exposition allowed students to develop contacts with the com- panies. Company representatives also promoted programs for students who were not graduating seniors. These included summer jobs, co-op programs and internships. Extra space was provided for companies to make special presentations which included slide shows and videos. Representatives used these tools to show interested students the kind of work done and the various types of engineers the company utilized. In addition to the booths that companies set up in the Union Ballroom, student engineering groups could also recruit new members at the Exposition. " The Exposition really provided a good change of pace for recruiters, " Sanborn said. " Recruiters like to see people at outside events. " The council also tried to involve engineering students in community service projects and ser- vice organizations. Volunteers helped elemen- tary and high school students through Uni- versity-sponsored programs such as Discovery Hall and Operation SEEE. by Nick Sarantakes POLISHING THE " BENT " David Santiago, engineering junior, polishes the symbol of Tau Beta Pi, Feb. 22.

None of them fits the mold of what we think homeless people are like. " The Plan II Service Committee planned ad- ditional projects which included helping res- idents of the Austin State School send Christmas cards to their families, sponsoring a scavenger hunt at the Thurman Half-Way House and participating in Project Outreach. During this campus-wide volunteer day, April 23, Plan II members painted the house for the Austin Fam- ily Center and assisted with yardwork. " We had two specific goals this year. One was to get Plan II students more involved in the UT community and also to get them involved with the Austin community, " president Will Woodruff, Plan II senior, said. By working on various community projects, the officers of the association hoped to help Plan II students get to know each other and build enthusiasm for the programs. " Service was an element of our program that was lacking, " Cramer said. " It clearly turned out to be what our students wanted to do. " Association members also worked for Plan II students. They began development on an in- ternship program especially designed for Plan II students, instigated Plan II career planning and contributed to the Study Abroad curriculum.

" We need to change the image of the Un- ion, " Board Chairman Jaime Vela, bilingual education senior, said. " We basically want it to be a home away from home. " According to Vela, the board ' s major project was overseeing the renovation of various parts of the building, particularly those areas of the facility which hold historical significance. The Sinclair Suite, which originally was re- served for women, and the Governor ' s Room, which in years past was the men ' s smoking room, both underwent major structural changes. Included in the renovation was the addition of a Mexican food outlet, " Tavern ' s " in the bar area. Vela said the the new establishment " should provide students with a place for sub- stantial food during a study break. " In addition to these tasks, the board dealt with problems that the Texas Tavern incurred when the drinking age was raised to 21. The income for the bar went down drastically after the change and hours had to be shortened to compensate for the loss of income. Also, minors were forced out of the area during serving times. The board compensated by dividing the room into two sections. The bar area restricted access to minors after 4 p.m. while the Tavern Showroom allowed all ages in with those over 2 1 being permitted to move between the two. The Showroom housed a majority of table space and showcased nu- merous bands that performed in the Tavern. Vela said this was done to allow minors to see the bands that perform. The old Varsity Cafeteria gained the attention of the board. Beside housing the Micro Center and KTSB Student Radio, the space was also allotted for Informal Classes and check cashing. " It ' s (board membership) a great learning experience for everyone involved, " Vela said. The board ' s 14-person membership consisted of two staff members, two coordinators, the Dean of Students, three faculty members and six students. Voting membership of the board in- cluded the student and faculty members. by Nick Sarantakes DID YOU KNOW?

Both Ray Meyer, doc- ral candidate from Minnesota State and Bill ing, Stanford Student Union Programming irector, spoke to council members during the fall semester to broaden their knowledge of multiculturalism. Chairwoman Alison Littlefield, finance and marketing senior, said, " We wanted to promote and improve the understanding of multicul- turalism itself and between races. " Improving communication and interaction between council members was another goal of the council. To accomplish this, the council met weekly, attended training retreats and functions and utilized the Texas Union newsletter. The TUOC Public Relations Committee published the newsletter, " Union Exposed, " to keep Union committee members informed of the latest Union news. " Any member can con- tribute to the newsletter, " Littlefield said. " It contains information concerning current pro- grams, spotlights members and reports infor- mation that members need to know. It really is an aid to smooth communications. " The council consisted of four sub- committees: finance, management, public re- lations and dining service management. Each committee had approximately 25 members and was headed by a chair. By researching and INTEREST AND ENTHUSIASM: Union committee members listen attentively at the retreat, Feb. 7. monitoring budgets, the committees provided information to help the council make proposals to the Texas Union Board of Directors for improved Union efficiency. " This year has been a success for TUOC. We ' ve had a great group of leaders, " Littlefield said. " Moving our orientation to the West Mall this year increased our number of recruits.

The committee ' s primary purpose was to research and present recommendations regard- ing use of Union facilities to the Union Board of Directors. The committee acted as the research arm for the board and probably worked more closely with board members than any of the other Union committees. One of their tasks was to allocate office space in Union facilities. Because there were only a small number of spaces available and over 500 organizations were registered, acquiring office space in the facility was tough. Committee members also checked and main- tained the suggestion boxes in the Union. The suggestions were discussed at meetings and those that were viable were put into practice. Once a semester, the committee monitored traffic through the Union. Members from var- ious Union committees were posted at the dif- ferent entrances to take a tally of people moving through the building. Counts were taken every 20 minutes during three-hour intervals. Members later used a sta- tistical equation to determine the approximate number of people moving throughout the building. Despite being involved in all these duties the Management Committee further strived to im- prove Union facilities. TURNING HEADS: Management Committee members listen attentively to a suggestion during the Feb. 16 meet- ing. They recommended that a deck be construct- ed outside the Tavern to give people a place to sit and enjoy music " al fresco. " " The deck will be installed.

The University ' s student radio station was set up in the old Varsity Cafeteria upon the rec- ommendation of the Management Committee. Even though the Varsity was not part of the Union, the building still fell under its juris-f diction.

When a pop- ular band played in the ballroom or an activity such as the Sports Trivia Contest needed pub- licizing, the PR Committee took over. One way the group advertised events was by manning booths on the West Mall. PR mem- bers dressed up in costumes at Halloween and the rest of the year they offered balloons and popcorn to attract students going to and from class. At the booth, people could pick up pam- phlets and other information or discuss coming attractions with a PR committee member. " We are an integral part of the Union, " committee chairwoman Jennifer Horan, pre-law junior, said. " We hope that by our efforts more students realize that they can come to campus not just for class, but to party also. " To pass along additional information, the committee issued a bi-weekly newletter to members of all Union committees. In the Jan- uary 25 issue, the " Rock ' n Thru the Night " party and Spring Orientation were highlighted. Along with providing information, the news- letter profiled a prominent Union member. During Round Up, tours were given through the Union. It was a time to show prospective students what could be found at Texas other than academics. New students were also in- formed about Union activities when they ar- rived at orientation. Each student was given a calendar publicizing events and trivia about the University.

Membership recruiting pays off for Union Orientations on West Mall encourage more active participation from UT student. T? his year the Texas Union Program i Council emphasized recruiting freshmen for committee membership. Special orien- tations, aimed at introducing students to TUPC and its causes, were held on the West Mall in the early fall and spring. Other mediums of advertising for recruiting this year included buttons, balloons and ban- ners. Chairwoman Heidi Torres, journalism se- nior, said, " We have done very well this year. We have made more advances, more programs, better enthusiasm and much better recruiting. " TUPC consisted of 1 1 committees which had special interests such as minority and inter- national awareness, art education and film and political issues. Using these topics, programs were planned to create more social and rec- reational activities. In the fall, Caesar Chavez, leader of the United Farmworkers of America, was invited to cam pus to give a speech on the treatment of minorities. The TUPC also worked to build camaraderie and openness among the members of the coun- cil. According to Torres, the council stressed communication and working together as a group. " To accomplish our goal we emphasized vol- unteering for other committees when they need- ed the manpower and to help each other with advertising by handing out other committee ' s flyers, " Torres said. " On a higher level we encouraged communication among committee chairs. " To achieve this communication, each chair was asked to attend one program of a different TUPC committee and announce other com- mittees ' programs at their own meetings. Other activities promoting better relations, Torres said, included a spring party attended by all TUPC committees. The increased communication paid off. Ac- cording to Torres, the TUPC ' s biggest activity of the year Friday Gras was a huge success. " I ' m sure it was because the whole committee worked together, " Torres said. Hun- dreds of people attended the annual Union- wide SLAYING THE DRAGON: As part of the celebration for the Year of the Dragon, the Asian Culture Committee held a banquet, Feb. 16 in the Union Ballroom.

It was a fascinating ex- " " perience to watch people from so many cul- tures being drawn together, " Ruth Polzer, French junior, said. In order to bring people together, the Texas Union International Awareness Commit- tee sponsored a mixer for UT students, faculty and staff at the beginning of each semester. To induce conversation, as students entered the fall mixer in the Union Ballroom they were given pins which they used to mark their place of origin on a world map hanging on a nearby wall.

" Some people danced to the international mu- sic which filled the air while others munched on the snack food that was available. Mostly, how- ever, the diverse cross-section of 700 inter- national students exchanged insights and ideas on various cultures, both American and foreign. " It was really fascinating to be in a room where so many different countries were represented, " Polzer said. " It was like spending the night in a different country. " To draw attention to another international committee event, Octoberfest, an eight foot beer stein was displayed during the last week in October on the West Mall. The 200-300 people who attended the event in the Texas Tavern, Oct. 29, listened to German and Austrian music played by an authentic Bavarian music group, Oma and the Oom-pahs from New Braunfels.

" Activities such as Blackfest, the MLK Celebration and the dedication of specially commissioned artwork combined to educate and expose the UT cam- pus to the African American culture, " TU A- ACC chairperson Franchelle Boyd, zoology-pre- med senior, said. The committee ' s events and programs in- creasingly fostered black awareness to students of all races. " Our efforts are intended to create recognition and support for Afro- American cul- tural advancement on campus, " Boyd said. One significant landmark for the TU A-ACC was the dedication of an important painting depicting historic black UT students Heman Sweatt and John Hargess. The painting, to be located in the Union, was the fifth in an ongoing series of privately commissioned black art. " Much of the old Union Artwork was lost in renovations during the early 80 ' s, " Boyd said, " as a result, the committee saw a need to instill what is annually becoming a rich tradition of combining art and black expression.

One of the more popular events sched- uled by the committee, Chicano Night at the Texas Tavern, routinely attracted several hun- dred students for an evening of Mexican music. " Power and the Mexican- American Woman " was perhaps the most informative event spon- sored by the committee. The activities began Thursday, Nov. 12, as the committee sponsored panel discussions on a wide range of subjects which highlighted the problems and challenges of successful Mexican-American women in Tex- as. The following day, speakers addressed His- panic attitudes towards a variety of topics in- cluding politics, education, careers, family and double minority social barriers. The speakers represented professional Mexican-American women and included Amalia Rodriquez Men- doza, Director of Voter Registration in the Travis County Tax Office of Austin, and Anna Martinez, Anchor Reporter for KVUE-TV. The Fall of ' 88 Noche Tejana Dos, the second annual Tejana night, April 16, featured Chicano Culture at its best in another committee ex- travaganza. The Travis High School Ballet Fol- klorico, Julio Casas y Mariachi Continental and Gary Hobbs The Hot Sauce Band were just some of the performers who entertained stu- dents in the Union Ballroom.

The committee sponsored several other pro- grams including Asian Day an exposition on Asian countries, Jungle Bash, Cultural Talent Night and a speaker series, " Japan Beating the US at its own game. " Committee head and Year of the Dragon coordinator Janice Chen, electrical engineering graduate student, said that the committee had gotten off to a good start. " The Jungle Bash Mixer, for example, had an attendance of over 500 students. The Day of the Dragon was a real hassle to organize but it was a great success. I think we have had an excellent response, " Chen said. During February, the committee held The Year of the Dragon Celebration in co- sponsorship with Alpha Chi, Chinese Students and Scholars, Hong Kong Students Association and Malaysian Students Association. Activities during the Year of the Dragon Celebration related to the Chinese New Year, Feb. 17, 1988 of the lunar calendar.

The Wigglies and the Way Outs brought their shows to the Union under a new program showcasing Austin bands sponsored by the Tex- as Union Campus Entertainment Commit- tee. The 25 member committee paid for the advertising and provided the manpower for the organizing, set up and clean up of all their projects. The bands received both free exposure during the off seasons and a chance to play their music, while the students got a free show. " The Austin Late Night is a new program that ' s turning out pretty well, " chairwoman Elizabeth Blevins, psychology senior, said. " The students like it so we do it " . Because of the CEC ' s nonprofit status, spon- soring such cultural events as the Gary Grants ' one man show and the Broadway play " 42nd Street " were almost too successful, drawing many students away from the Performing Arts Centers ' money making events.

" And if the attendence at Austin Late Night was any reflection, the students were respond- ing.

Fri- day Gras was by far the largest event the Texas Union Campus Interaction Committee planned. Every year on the second Friday of the fall semester, the Union turned into one giant party. " It started off as a free admission, free beer, drunken brawl, " Termina said, " and even though the drinking age has gone up, there are certainly many things to do for everyone. " Those events included laser tag, the dating game, casino games and armadillo races. Six bands, highlighted by Austin favorites Omar and the Howlers in the Ballroom and Killer Bees in the Texas Tavern, performed throughout the night. According to Termina, mapping out Friday Gras was a year-long process. The major plan- ning for the party started in the spring semester around March and continued through the sum- mer until September.

In the spring the committee sponsored, along with radio station KHFI-FM (K-98), " Rock ' n Thru the Nite. " " We had over 2000 people show up for this. In the past, the party has attracted only 200-300 people, so it was quite a success this year, " Termina said. The Ballroom ' s opening band was Dr. Pat- terson and the Associates. Headlining the night was a local favorite Bad Mutha Goose. The Texas Union Film Committee showed free Beatles movies in the Union Theater. " In April, we had a quarter party. The theory behind this was that everyone in college is poor, so this parry was going to be as cheap as possible. " Termina said. " The admission was free with everything else being a quarter even beer. " CIC also presented a spring concert series on West Campus in which several bands played.

Affiliated with the Union Program Council, TUSIC sponsored debates, guest speakers and forums on campus as part of its effort to educate and encourage decision making by concerned students. " Campus Crossfire, " one of the committee ' s most successful events, promoted free student debates over such issues as politics, gay and lesbian rights and abortion. Their biggest event, " CIA: Recruiting for National Security? " was a three-day focus, March 22-24, on college re- cruitment by the CIA. It featured Arthur Hulnick, CIA Academic Coordinator, a film documentary, " On Company Business, " and high ranking CIA official, John Stockwell.

Speakers were selected based on their knowledge, experience, influence and po- sition in public office, foreign affairs, private industry and history. Because it lacked funds for continuous lec- tures with well-known figures, the committee concentrated on smaller events but planned one or two lectures with renowned speakers. In November, the committee sponsored Arkady Shevchenko, who, when he came to the United States in 1978, was the highest ranking Soviet diplomat to ever defect. Author of the best-selling novel Breaking with Moscow, he spoke of U.S. Soviet relations on the eve of scheduled talks between President Reagan and Premier Gorbachev. Over 300 students attended the lecture en- titled " War and Peace. " He had been a strong supporter of communism, but lost faith in the system when he was Undersecretary General of the United Nations. This led to his defection in 1978 and his U.S. citizenship in 1986. Shevchenko said, " I don ' t miss the power element of Soviet politics. " What he does miss, he said, are the Russian culture and his family. " Of course you miss your own country, the environment there. It is difficult to adjust, but I don ' t regret leaving, " he said. The committee dedicated itself to providing the University with elite lecture programs. A debate on the government ' s role and regulations in toxic waste began the lecture year in Feb- ruary. Dr. Peter Bowman of the Sierra Club and Karen Shewbart of the Dow Chemical Company headed each opposing side at the debate. In April, Harvard teacher and renowned economist, John Kenneth Galbraith, presented his views on U.S. and Japanese economic com- petitiveness at the committee s symposium. His lecture included views on the world trade scale and projections of the future for the two coun- tries, socially and culturally.

College students could certainly relate to juggling; classwork alone was more than enough to occupy their minds. Yet attending a world-class university opened pos- sibilities for pursuing other non-academic interests. With as many as 500 student organizations to choose from, many students did not limit themselves to one particular group. Sports enthusiasts could participate in everything from riflery to water skiing to volleyball. Minority groups met for fellowship and promotion of cultural awareness on campus. Community-conscious groups assisted local charities and social service in- stitutions while other organizations gave performances in both dance and song. While all this activity seemed impossible to those outside UT, it was the norm for University students. As jugglers concentrate to keep their pins afloat, students found an equilibrium between their schoolwork and their own unique interests. by Zuriel Loera SPECIAL INTERESTS EDITED BY LISA BREED ZURIEL LOERA Special Interests 26 1 THE NEED FOR SPEED an you imagine driving as fast as you want with no radar detection systems looming over the next hill ... no cops, no stop signs and no holds barred? " Club Autosport is a good way to drive like a maniac legally no speed limits, " President Glenn Grossenbacher, said. Club Autosport offered members the chance to participate in autocrosses sponsored by two large, local sports car clubs, Spokes in Austin and North Texas Sports Car Club in Temple. An autocross involved timing a car ' s speed in completing a course marked by pylons. All types of cars were represented at the autocrosses, both foreign and domestic models. Cars competed on the same course but were judged according to different classes: stock, street-prepared, prepared and modified. Stock cars are " straight from the factory, " street- prepared and prepared are cars that have been upgraded to improve handling and increase speed, and modified cars are specifically built for racing. " It doesn ' t matter how fast or modified your car is, it all comes down to superior driving skills, " Mike Linnemann, finance senior, said. Many members agreed that the club was highly competitive. " You get into it and want to be the fastest, " Nick Huppler, radio-television-film junior, FRONT ROW: David T. Lu, Timothy Ronald Gee. Glenn T. Grossenbacher, Benjamin Frank Chan. BACK ROW: Nicholas David Huppler, Mickal Todd Vlasak, Mike Ernst Linnemann said. Members enjoyed certain privileges such as entry fee discounts at local autocrosses, discounts at specialty stores such as Autosport Motoring Accessories, " detail " sessions and racing in- struction videotapes at Mr. Gatti ' s. " Detail " was just a fancy word for " cleaning " . Specialized car care products were provided by Autosport Motoring Accessories for free trial by club members. " You don ' t have to have a sports car to be in the club just enthusiasm for sports cars, " Grossenbacher said. Members prominently dis- played Club Autosport banners on their car windshields. " People didn ' t ridicule me when I slid around the course my first autocross because everyone messes up.

The trip, en in two planes Nov. 6-8, provided mem- ers with valuable flying time. " It was a great learning experience, " club easurer Craig Boyd, government senior, said. We got caught in bad weather and had to stop efore we got to Houston. We all learned a lot xmt flight planning, to say the least. " Members also attended the Wings Over louston Air Show on Sept. 26 and took a trip Kerrville, where they toured the Mooney .ircraft Plant. " We had access to about 10 airplanes and we ew to all of our destinations, " Mark Whittum, srospace engineering junior, said. " We had ight instructors in the club who offered flight istruction to members. " " You don ' t have to have any flying qual- ications to be in this club, " said Eric Polei, resident and aerospace engineering senior. The club helps to cultivate aspects such as jfety to help make our members better pilots. " " The club provided the lowest cost of flying i Austin whether it was for the joy of it or for flight training. Some members flew themselves home for weekends and then flew themselves back, " Polei said. The members also held their annual flight around Austin in the spring. They leased planes and for $ 1 5 a person, flew the public over downtown Austin and Lake Travis, donating the money earned to charity. " We are an organization where students in- terested in flying can get together and learn from each other, " Polei said. by Ruth Blumenthal - Laura Darby FRONT ROW: Eran Hami, Ron Leo Witrenberg, Cymhia Jo Hib- l r.l.

To begin their quest for the Southwest Con- ference championship, they added six or seven new players, who remained with the team throughout the year. " As rookies they really helped the team out, " Stuart Buchanan, biology junior, said. To get to the SWC Championships, Texas Lacrosse put in many long hours of practice at the Intramural Fields. In the fall the team held two practices a week, and in the spring as the championships approached, they held practice every weeknight. " The team really came together as the season went further along, " Buchanan said. Before gaining a berth to the SWC playoffs, Texas Lacrosse competed against other teams in their division, the Southwest Lacrosse Asso- ciation. Teams in this division included Texas A M, Sam Houston State, Rice, Southwestern and Louisiana State. The opposing division was the West Di- vision, which consisted of teams from Texas Tech, Baylor, Southern Methodist, Texas Chris- tian, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. By building a record of nine wins and one loss in division play, the Texas Lacrosse team qual- ified for the SWC playoffs. The Championships were held at Texas A M on April 23-24. Texas Lacrosse defeated Oklahoma State by a score of 16-5 before falling to Texas Tech in the final. " Tech was an extremely strong team and they deserved to win, but next year we ' ll be out to get them, " Buchanan said. " Despite the upsetting loss in the final, I thought it was an extremely good year.

The club, organized by Giddens, was playing ror its second year. According to Giddens, the 1EADING HOME: In a scoring attempt, Michelle Gid- iens, marketing senior, takes control of the ball and crosses I he field at Zilker Park. team had about 20 members, although 1 1 played at one time in a game. " This is strictly a recreational team. We all love field hockey and really like to get together to play for fun, " Giddens said. Giddens, who coached the team, said that experience helped, but was not a requirement of the club; she was willing to coach anyone with equipment and the desire to play field hockey. The biggest obstacle for the club was trying to obtain enough equipment. Most of the women already had hockey sticks of their own, but they borrowed goalie pads and other equipment from St. Stephens. Field hockey, a combination of soccer and ice hockey, was popular primarily in the eastern countries of Pakistan and India. Although it was considered a women ' s sport, Giddens said that some of the men on campus expressed interest in playing. However, because St. Stephens re- stricted their women ' s team to playing only other women ' s teams competitively, the men were content to just cheer at the team ' s games. by Andrea Hood Kifc!

Yet, un- daunted, they began their second season playing Tulane in New Orleans on Sept. 14. " It was a competitive match. After two days the tie could not be broken. We went on to play nationally ranked Texas A M, " Jerry Murad, English junior, said. " We lost the first match but we won the second match at the Texas Exposition and Heritage Center [on Nov. 14]. " ' " The other teams had a string of horses and we exchanged them halfway throughout the match so as not to provide an unfair advantage for either team, " Murad said. The men reached the Central Regional In- tercollegiate Tournament where they played top ranked Colorado State, losing only in the last few seconds. As a result, they placed sixth overall in the tournament. The members were close-knit and were high- ly dedicated and competitive players. " In spite of an upset at regionals, we had a great fall GIVING CHASE: With Matthew Smith, liberal arts soph- omore, in pursuit, Robert Gerry, government sophomore, goes for the ball during practice.

We ' re up against teams that practice weekly, and we still manage to pull off a victory now and then, " Murad said. At the other end of the spectrum, the women of the polo team enjoyed access to training facilities as well as horses at the Retama Polo Club in San Antonio and at the privately owned club of their ex-officio coach, Rachel Smith. Practicing weekly in San Antonio, the women played Texas Tech on Feb. 13 and challenged SMU at the regional matches held on Feb. 27. " We had a great second season. Attending the nationals was a great help, too. With more practices and games next year, we will hopefully qualify at the nationals instead of just being spectators, " Renee Harvey, liberal arts fresh- man, said. by Kristi Shumaker 266 Texai Longhorn Polo Association NOT HORSING AROUND ' . " t -, cmbership in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association was not easily attain- ,ble, but through outstanding results in several jmping and gait competitions, the Texas iquestrian Team proved that they were wor- hy of the privilege. " We ' re the first school in Texas to be ac- epted into the IHSA. Our region consists of rennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and Texas, " Kim Hasselmark, chemical engineering senior, said. Membership in the IHSA entitled the Texas Equestrian Team to compete in shows against teams from other universities who were also MAKING A JUMP: Kristi Cheldelin, chemical engi- neering freshman, practices jumping on Smiley, her horse. members of the association. The team competed in jumping and gait competitions in the Regional Horse Show spon- sored by the IHSA in Missouri on March 5-6. On the second day of the show, they were awarded the highest amount of points, or " high point team, " out of 15 colleges participating in the competition. " It was our first regional show, and we came back victorious, to say the least, " Hasselmark said. The team also went to the Bexar Creek Horse Show held April 1-3. Even though it was a show of the highest level, they still performed well. " It was a difficult show, but our school spirit permeated throughout the show, and we ended up doing really well, " Roxie Hayes, finance- international business senior, said. Membership on the team was open to all University students and faculty who owned or leased a horse and were willing to go to the stables to ride at least three days a week. " It takes a lot more time to be a part of a competitive equestrian team than just going to something like swim practice a few days a week. There is a lot of extra work involved, like taking care of a horse and maintaining equipment, but we all love it, " Hasselmark said. The group was unique because they com- peted at both public shows and those at the intercollegiate level.

Coaches and gymnastic equipment were available for the students to work out safely at their own pace. " You get out of it what you put in it. You can come in and work out, but you have to want to improve yourself to get results, " President Eric Schroeder, microbiology-pre-med senior, said. Some dub members were also on the men ' s gymnastics team. The club helped sponsor the gymnastics team as they hosted the UT Open Gymnastics Meet on Jan. 30 and placed second out of six teams. " We have to organize our own meets and do everything on our own. It ' s a good experience, but it ' s hard, " Schroeder said. " We should have placed first, but we didn ' t have our mental game together.

Jeff McClanahan, electrical engineering se- nior, said that after placing fifth in the Polar Bear Open, which was sponsored by Texas A M, the team decided to put all of their efforts into winning first place from then on. " We showed a lot of improvement in the Mis- sissippi College Invitational Tournament on April 16-17, to say the least. We took first in women ' s competition, .first in men ' s and first overall, " he said. Thirteen teams competed in the Mississippi College Invitational Tournament. The skiers were judged for slalom skiing, tricks and dis- tance jumping. On May 14-15, the team competed in the National All-Star Tournament at Middleville, Ga., where the best skiers from the Southwest Conference teams formed one team to compete against other college conferences. " The National All-Star Tournament was re- ally different because we were skiing on the same team with those people that we usually competed against, " McClanahan said.

The Martial Arts Club, composed of students and faculty members, had the format of a class rather than that of a club. The club met three rimes per week, practicing martial arts tech- niques for a total of four and a half hours. Members, who ranged in experience from white belts to black belts, were divided into groups for instruction according to their individual skills and experience. Rodney Brown, instructor of the Martial Arts Club, described martial arts as an art, which, hen properly taught and intensely practiced, could be beautifully performed. Borden, who had instructed martial arts for years, said, " Martial arts is not fighting, it is longing to an honorable brotherhood. It is a nion of the mind and the body, and when intertwined with humility and philosophy, it could be a powerful weapon as well as an art. " Borden had club members concentrate on conditioning to increase their flexibility and strength, placing emphasis on memorized form routines. He also taught some defensive and offensive techniques, including the joint-locking defense, which manipulated the opponent and caused pain without injury. The group also trained with traditional weap- ons such as swords. The goal of the 50-member group was to increase self-discipline. This discipline, mem- bers believed, distinguished martial arts, a method of self-defense, from fighting .

Club members learned various marksmanship techniques and skills. The head coach, retired Army Col. George McKennan, provided instruction along with as- sistant coaches Caroline Roberts and Phillip Winsborough at the rifle range adjacent to Steindam Hall. The coaches also hoped to dispel the myth that rifle competition was a male-oriented sport by encouraging women to join. Although the club persuaded only five women to join, they did succeed in teaching the responsibility that comes with handling a rifle. The club was very safety-oriented, and care was taken to supervise new and inexperienced members. " Above all, rifles are not toys and great care should be used with them, but one shouldn ' t fear them either, " club president Juan Chen, astronomy senior, said.

One of the main tournaments in which the club participated was the Collegiate National Championships, sponsored by the National Ri- fle Association and held Feb. 6-7. The club had hopes of repeating as national champions. The club also traveled to Colorado Springs, Co., to the U.S. Olympic Training Center for an open tournament March 19-20. Varsity teams from across the nation competed along with independent competitors. " Our goal is to preserve the winning tradition of the rifle club, " Chen said. " Although NCAA teams usually score higher in team competitior we ' re confident we ' ll finish in the top thre places. " Originally the club was sponsored nationwk by the Army.

" It was really great to get a break from school and enjoy the outdoors for a few days, " Goodson said. The club held its annual Fin and Feather Banquet on Oct. 17 at Zilker Park. Chicken from Kentucky Fried Chicken and fish from Long John Silver ' s served as the entrees for the meal. " They call it a banquet, but it ' s really just a picnic and a time for the members to get together.

" As a team, we weren ' t very experienced at the time, " Kathy Riggs, fashion design junior, said. This was the second time the two rivals had met in competition. North Texas won 2-0 in the first game of the season. This time would be different, however. " We were flying when we came out on the field. The first half of the game was a standstill. After halftime, though, we popped out one goal and then held them off the rest of the game, " Kathy MacKay, data processing and analysis junior, said. " It is always gratifying for a club team to beat a varsity team, " added MacKay. The victory boosted the team ' s confidence helping them win in a game against Baylor. The club only had 1 2 players available versus Baylor ' s 30 uniformed players. UT won 1-0. The club celebrated victories with the men ' s soccer club or went to Chuy ' s to " hang-out " . At the beginning of October, the club had a party with the Texas A M soccer club team to wel- come them to Austin. " Unfortunately, ankle and knee injuries plagued the team throughout the fall semester. As a result, some of the top players had to sit on the sidelines, but people seemed to come out of the walls eager to play and we recruited players from the city league soccer team in the mean- time, " MacKay said. " The absence of some of our top players actually taught the team to work together more instead of depending on those players to lead the team, " Sara Bennett, kinesiology sophomore, said.

The club practiced from two to five times a week and usually played matches against university clubs on Saturdays and city league teams on Sundays. " We ' re probably the most competitive team in Austin, " MacKay said. City league coach Efrain Loyaza often helped the team during matches and practices, but the team lacked an official, full-time coach. The team was nevertheless a close-knit group that welcomed new members and fans. " Whoever comes out can play, " Macl! said.

" We play volleyball for enjoyment, not to die. In other words, competition without all the stress, " Debbie Daley, physical education jun- ior, said. The club practiced every Tuesday and Thurs- day night for their tournament season in the spring. The first tournament they played was on April 7 at Gregory Gym. Teams participating in the tournament were from Texas A M, Uni- versity of Texas at Arlington, and Stephen F. Austin State University. Although the volleyball - ' j Magdafena Zavala club did not qualify for the finals, the team was in good spirits. " Even though we didn ' t win every time, we still went out and tried, " Donna Boyne, math- ematics senior, said. The club was open to anyone who was in- terested in playing volleyball. Ruben Reyes, physical education junior and former member of the UT Men ' s Volleyball Club, led the women in practicing and working out. " We are lucky to have such a great coach, but boy, does he work us hard, " Daley said. The club was sponsored by Rec Sports and took pride in having membership in the United States Volleyball Association (USVBA). " Membership in the USVBA enabled us to play against other collegiate teams who were members, so the competition was better, " Sue Peters, business sophomore, said. Peters said that the aspect of the club that intrigued her the most was the variety of dif- ferent people from various high schools in the group. " I play with some of the people that I used to play against in high school. That ' s the really neat thing about it, " she said. The club was dedicated to playing volleyball and having a good time while doing it. " Loving to play volleyball was what we had in common.

UT Women ' s Volleyball Club 275 M DEDICATED DANCERS J he UT Dance Team concentrated on repositioning itself in the University com- munity as well as throughout Austin. Sparked with determination for being recognized as a serious dance company, the group took the necessary measures. Ronda Hughes, a pyschology sophomore and head of public relations for the dance team, said, " We are finalizing a transition that started a few years ago and the last aspect of it is to get our name as a serious dance team. " The team moved from concentration on com- petitions to more performances in the hopes of gaining name recognition. The members per- formed group routines at the Baylor and Texas Tech pep rallies and also during Pre-registration in October. On Dec. 1 the dance team per- formed at the Castilian for the enrichment pro- gram at the dormitory. At that event they danced six routines and selected members of the audience to join them. At the end of November members spent four days with the Johnston Senior High School drill team teaching the group new jazz routines. All of these events helped the dance team to reach the goals it had set out to achieve. Monica Barrientos, a marketing junior and manager of the company, said, " This year was most mem- orable because we immediately assessed our strengths, emphasized these strengths in our choreography and as a result came out with dances that showcased our talented members. In the process the UT Dance Team received the recognition it deserved. " The demanding auditions additionally proved the seriousness of this dance company. Auditions were held in the fall and spring. For each semester 12 to 15 dancers were chosen from 90 students. The auditions, open to all students, consisted of two-day tryouts in which members spent 30 to 40 minutes teaching the dancers two routines. The dancers were allowed 20 minutes to practice the routines by them- selves and afterwards they joined an assigned group to perform the dances. Although only one of the dancers was a dance major, the dance team was not for amateurs. Some had up to six years of dancing experience. The dance team gave those students with the love of dancing an opportunity to work with others with the same dedication.

" Since many people who quit smoking tend to sit around and eat instead of exercising, we wanted to give them an alternative to smoking and help them keep in shape at the same time, " Carty said. The project began on Nov. 18 with a rally in the West Mall with a speech by Earl Campbell, ponsoring an aerobic class to help those who had stopped smoking and wanted to art exercising enabled UT Aerobic Dance to et involved in the American Cancer Society ' s ireat American Smokeout.

Another rally was held at the UT Sys- tems building with The Fabulous Thunderbirds opening the show. " They wanted us to perform a preview of the aerobic dance we would be performing the next day, " Carty said. The club was also involved in another char- itable activity, the Dance for Heart for the American Heart Association in the spring, along with other fitn ess clubs in the Austin area. They did aerobics for as long as four hours and later collected pledges for each hour they danced. While members of the club participated in these charitable events, they were also able to tone up their muscles and get into shape. " Our aerobic dance classes are a fun way to achieve fitness. Our instructors and members are ded- icated to having safe yet fun ways to work out, " Carty said. The instructors choreographed the dances themselves and taught high impact aerobic classes several days during the week on a vol- unteer basis. The classes lasted approximately an hour and were aimed at an intermediate level. High impact was a fast-paced style of aer- obics that involved many high intensity move- ments while working at a target heart rate. " If a beginner is having trouble keeping up with the pace in my class I would assist them in modifying the dance routine to a lower impact level, " Sophia Conde, co-president and physical education junior, said. An estimated 400 people were registered in classes, including about 30 men and 10 faculty members. " Our members are people who are motivated to stay healthy by devoting time to a regular exercise program. They realize the benefits of exercise and are determined to be the best they can, " Carty said. Membership fees for each semester were $10 and allowed members to come as frequently as they wished during the semester. The money collected was used to buy music for the routines, stereo equipment, to send the instructors to workshops and to pay for their certification. by Andrea Hood UT Aerobic Dance 279 LESSON IN FRIENDSHIP or students wishing to learn about some- thing other than typical classroom subjects, the basement area of the Texas Union was the place to visit. Sometime between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. al- most any day of the week, members of the Rec Rats occupied several tables between dart boards and the control desk. Members explained to curious onlookers how to play bridge, Dun- geons Dragons, pool or darts. The newly formed organization also taught valuable lessons in other areas such as time management. " It forced me to incorporate a social life with an academic life, " John Wilson, advertising senior said. In addition to the time budgeting lesson, members and inquisitive spectators participated in well-rounded discussion periods about such topics as religion, politics and the latest news in the daily papers. " Just be fairly open, willing to listen to any viewpoint on any subject, " Scott F. Kelley, president and education senior, said. " Walk in, and there will be a conversation on science fiction, politics ... " Members agreed that perhaps the most val- uable lesson the Rec Rats provided was a lesson in true friendship. " They say college is where you make friends for life, " Wilson said. " I ' ll definitely fill my autograph book before graduating.

For the ideal ' acation and the ultimate challenge, 450 mem- bers of University Ski Club traveled to Crest- d Butte, Colorado Jan. 2- 1 1 for 10 days of fun, neeting new friends and getting down the nountain any way possible. " I didn ' t even know how to ski when we .rrived at Crested Butte, but after the Wine and Iheese Party, I was daring to try anything, " Lisa illedge, government junior, said. The Wine and Cheese Party held Jan. 8 on he mountain was just one of organized ac- ivities, but it was one of the most fun for the kiers. " We terrorized the mountain after that arty, the Ski Patrol couldn ' t even catch us, " )avid Norton, business junior, said. Teresa Garcia, advertising senior, said, " The unniest part was drinking wine and watching brave few do some crazy skiing. " But the fun wasn ' t over when the ski lifts stopped moving. " After a long day of skiing, we would unwind by having parties in the hot tubs and then in our condos, " Juan Rivara, mar- keting senior, said. The Plaza Condominiums where the Ski Club stayed provided the perfect atmosphere for a vacation in the mountains. " It was a small quaint town, but we could party hard there. Our group occupied the entire Plaza condos, " Social Director Teri Thompson, fashion design senior, said. The Ski Club also organized a pajama party and happy hours at local bars during the year to keep members informed abou t upcoming ac- tivities. " The whole idea behind the club is to have a great time, meet lots of new friends and, of course, to ski some of the best mountains, " Thompson said. by Crisney Lane ON THE WAY DOWN: University Ski Club mem- ber heads down the slope feet first after a fall.

HIGH ABOVE THE TREE LINE ANYONE FOR TENNIS? ith greater involvement and more activ- ities, the UT Tennis Club could have been called " new and improved. " " Now we ' re a good club next semester we ' ll be a great club, " President Solomon Liu, electrical engineering route to business senior, said. New aspects of the club included the Travel Committee which arranged trips to observe pro- fessional tennis events and exhibitions in Texas such as the World Championship Tennis Tour- nament in Dallas. Practices held on Tuesday, Friday, and Sun- day afternoons at the Intramural Field courts attracted large groups of 15-20 players. A new automatic ball machine was available for those who wished to use it. For those who wished to improve their tennis skills, club officers organized clinics for be- ginners and drills for intermediate players. In addition, Robert Haugen , assistant coach of the women ' s tennis team, conducted a tennis clinic during the fall and spring semester. " The club was better organized, the people running the club were more sincere in putting in time and membership more than doubled, " Howard Jeng, chemical engineering senior, said. Tournaments organized by the Tennis Club attracted a large number of players. The first two, the Longhorn Championship held Sept. 18-20 and the Fall Tournament in October, involved 130 and 150 participants, respectively. At the Fall Longhorn Championship, a wom- en ' s doubles team consisting of Susan Bryson and Robyn Field, two ex-varsity Tennis Team players, was victorious over an advanced (A division) men ' s doubles team. " The turn-out was the best I ' ve ever seen, " Jeng said. The Longhorn Doubles Championship, Spring Open and Spring Classic tournaments were held during the spring. " Tournaments gave all members the chance to improve their games, " Liu said. The club helped tennis team Coach David Snyder organize and publicize both Longhorn Cha mpionships by posting signs on trees around campus. Tournaments usually lasted a weekend. " It always rains on tournament day it ' s a tra- dition, " Liu said. In spring, the club played matches against the Austin Tennis League, a group of Austin res- idents interested in quality competition and practice. The Tennis Club offered people interested in playing tennis the chance to play or, practice with others. " The club is a group of students who enjoy playing tennis. If you are just starting out, or just interested in playing, it ' s a good way to find partners, " Jennifer Stephens, American studies junior, said. " I was impressed there ' s nothing like tbj at A M, " Carol Safe, math-French freshma| said. L by Lori Seto MUSCLING IT: James Bui, electrical engineering seni 1 delivers a powerful return.

The group hoped to break previous atten- dance records for the event after three days of fair weather on Wednesday, Thursday and Fri- day. That goal was cut short, however, as some spectators decided to stay out of the rain that appeared Saturday morning. " I can ' t believe the meet went so well with the rain. The stands were filled under the over- hang. Every other year when it rained nobody showed up, but this year the committee really came through and showed up with their smiles. It was amazing, " Program Subcommittee Chairperson Boni Hamilton, advertising- marketing senior, said. The first two days of the relay consisted of the Decathlon and Heptathlon Open Invitationals and individual events. Committee members working on the decathlon planned and ran the entire event. According to the Relay ' s program, this was the only student-run decathlon in the Deborah Ann Flaherty, Carol Diane Levin, Kira Lee Meissner. Elizabeth Lee Roberts. Donna J. Tattnan, Robin Elizabeth Thompson, Joal Cannon. Friday ' s events included running prelimina- ries that concluded on Saturday ' s finals. The Texas Relays Student Committee was separated into subcommittees to divide the heavy workload necessary to promote, organize and publicize the meet. Much had to be done even before the athletes arrived. Processing ap- plications for schools and their athletes, selling advertisements for the Relay ' s program and creating general interest were only a few of the responsibilities of the committee. " The work we do is hard and you have t give a lot of time and energy, " Chairman Kir Launius, economics senior, said. " It ' s as muc fun as it is work, and since it was an Olymp year, we were able to be within feet of Olymp athletes.

Texas Relays Student Committee 287 FACING THE CHALLENGE J t was a year of transition for the Texas Stars. In the past, their performance sched- ule included all Longhorn basketball games at home; however, this year their performance time was cut back to include only six halftimes. " At first we were upset with the change and it hurt our pride, " Michelle Anderson, eco- nomics junior, said, " but it ' s been a pretty good year. " Accepting the change as a challenge, the Stars worked harder to make their routines more special and exciting. " Because our dance time was cut down we have more time to get into the games and get the crowd going, " Anderson said. The Stars also had more time to give the Longhorns supportive parties such as a fajita dinner at the home of their director, Barbara Loomis. The Stars, with three new members plus the nine returning members, kept busy giving spe- cial performances at such events as The Future Homemakers of America Convention in San Antonio on Jan. 30, and Healthfest the fol- lowing weekend at Palmer Auditorium. Other performances included those at the Greek vs. Independent football game, and Dallas Mav- ericks and San Antonio Spurs games. In addition to all of their activities during the year, individual members served as judges for various high school drill team tryouts, and also worked as dance instructors at different summer camps throughout the nation. " Being a Texas Star is a full time com- mitment, and going to the camps is how we stay in shape. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to develop our own unique style to perfection, " Anderson said. " It ' s worth it knowing that you have given a part of yourself to UT and really been a part of it, and that leaves me with a good feeling , " Belinda Matteson, speech-health education se- nior, said. by Keith Praesel GO HORNS.GO: Toni Lamb, pre-business sophomore, performs at the Texas Tech game on Feb. 17.

" They are tremendous. We take a lot of pride them, and they are a vital part of our or- .nization, " Coach James Blackwood, recruit- g coordinator for the Longhorn football team, id. Each weekend during the football season, the amen performed a wide range of duties as ficial " hostesses " to the University ' s football cruits. The Angels greeted the high school ayers during their unofficial visits to the Uni- rsity and showed them around the Neuhaus- oyal Athletic Center where the Longhorns orked out. Then the visitors were taken to the Jelines at Memorial Stadium to watch the am practice. Members also helped with recruiting players jring the spring, and assisted the coaches jring the summer orientation session. Furthermore, the group acted as a spirit or- mization for the football team, decorating the otball cafeteria in Jester before games and eating scrapbooks of the careers of all the nior players. The Angels additionally served as hostesses at the Texas Exes Alumni Center sev- eral hours before football games, welcoming back former students. Rodney Davis, vice-president and business management senior, said that football was the common thread among the members, who wanted to do something to get actively involved with the program. Cristen Colangelo, broadcast journalism se- nior and secretary treasurer, agreed. " I enjoy sports, and have a love for football. I wanted to be a part of UT, " she said. Each member in the group was carefully selected. Early in the school year the Angels accepted just 20 new members out of about 325 applicants, chosen by interviews on the basis of personality, extracurricular activities and grades. No nominations were allowed. Members were required to earn points through activities to be able to return to the group the following year. The Angels were almost evenly divided be- tween sorority members and independents, Jill Coleman, president and pre-med-microbiology junior, said.

" " There ' s so much emphasis placed on the football team, and we feel like the swim team deserves more attention than it gets, so we got more involved this year and set up more ac- tivities and goals.

They also centered more attention on promoting the dif- ferent meets to be held in the Texas Swim Center by posting flyers around campus. A major addition to the organization was a system of big sisters and little brothers between returning members and freshmen swimmers. " The whole idea was to help the new team members feel more comfortable because some of them are far from home. It made the other swimmers a little jealous, but after a couple of years all the swimmers will have big sisters, " Moyer said. Two new activities were a volleyball picnic at Deep Eddy Park on Sept. 26 to start the year with a splash and a Valentine ' s Day party at the home of two members. The Babes also hosted a party with tl Matchmates in honor of the swim team, tenr team and the golf team on Jan. 23.

" Most of this year ' s team members are new, " Joyce Wilkenfeld, liberal arts sophomore, said. " The purpose of the pasta party was to get acquainted with the new players. " Matchmates cheered on the tennis team by decorating their locker rooms and the Pennick- Allison Tennis Center with streamers and post- ers. Before important matches, members would also garnish players ' dorm or apartment doors. Other perks included surprise pizza or ice cream and banana split parties after team practices to boost morale among the team members. " They like to be noticed because they don ' t draw the crowds that football or basketball teams do, " Tally Leighton, finance sophomore, said. " They really appreciate our support and show it by winning matches, " Wilkenfeld said. Matchmates consisted of about 60 members who were each interviewed by tennis team members and chosen on the basis of enthusiasm and their tennis background, according to Pres- ident Michelle Weber, broadcast news senior. " Matchmates range from social to state-ranked players, " Weber said. " I joined because I like to watch tennis and didn ' t want to lose touch after playing varsity tennis in high school, " Leighton said.

SUPER FUNDRAISER lot of campus organizations hold dances for social reasons, but the service fraternity pha Phi Omega sponsored Super Dance for additional purpose to raise money for lildren with muscular dystrophy. It was held n Feb. 20 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel with lusic provided by disc jockey Hollywood Har- from radio station K98. Refreshments and ecorations for the event were donated by local stores. As many as 300 invitations to participate in the fundraiser were sent to campus and com- munity organizations by Super Dance com- mittee head Torro Burch, early childhood and kindergarten education junior. About 130 peo- ple attended the dance and contributed a total of $3,000 in donations. " You dance all night for money, " Kathi Bottner, psychology senior said, " and [The Muscular Dystrophy Association] is a good charity to help, and that ' s why we are going to keep doing it over and over. If it only raised $100 it would be worth it. " Although Super Dance was a very worthwhile charitable event, it was only one of the services that APO provided during the year. Other projects included Rat Patrol, in which members picked up trash in East Austin, and the Adopt- A-Highway Program in which mem- bers cleaned litter off the roadside near Highway 290 twice a semester. They also gave an Easter egg hunt at Austin ' s Deaf School on Mar. 26, and an Easter dinner at the Center for Battered Women on Mar. 31. Members also volunteered to take part in the SURE Walk program on campus, to help in the student elections and the University blood drive, and to distribute UT directories. Once a week APO participated in a project such as clearing brush for the Boy Scouts at Lost Pines Camp and the Girl Scouts at Tex Lake Camp. " It ' s real manual kind of stuff, " Brent Harding, aerospace engineering junior said. " That ' s what I like about APO, getting in there and working hard. " " Being a member is very fulfilling, " Harding said. " It gives you a chance to do things that you couldn ' t do on your own, like helping with the Special Olympics. " At the Special Olympics, which took place on March 26 at Memorial Stadium, APO ran the giant Texas flag on the field, cheered the kids on and met them at the finish line to give them a hug. " When you see a smile on a kid ' s face there ' s nothing like it in the world, " Bottner said. by Keith Praesel HEALTH FOOD: APO volunteer Scott Harris, aerospace engineering junior, hands Virginia Koblizek, finance senior, cookies and soda to help her recover after donating blood. Alpha Phi Omega 293 FRIENDS FOR A CAUSE ellwether is not just a name, it ' s a concept of leadership, scholarship, friendship and community service. " We ' re a group of friends, " said Cynthia Havelka, government senior, " who got together for the same reasons and got to know each other better. " The group ' s objectives during the year were service projects aimed at children and the eld- erly. On Oct. 30, Bellwether sponsored a Hal- loween party for some of Austin ' s abused chil- dren. The group went to the Rest Haven Nursing Home on Nov. 21, to provide companionship and play games, such as dominoes with the residents. " We always have a good time with them, " Renee Barren, data processing senior said. Members also visited other nursing homes in the Austin area. Bellwether ' s big project was a combined ef- fort with the Community and Schools Organ- ization sponsored through the Austin Independ- ent School District.

" Despite the fact that the membership of Bellwether was all female, men were encouraged to join. Bellwether, however, had a subsidiary group of members ' boyfriends and friends called " Bellwether Beaus " . Bellwether had their annual group picnic at Zilker Park and participated in the flashcard show at all Longhorn home football games. The group maintained that although social- izing events were involved, the primary goal remained community service. Bellwether met every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in Jester Center.

A group formed to provide service to the ommunity, campus and other students, Gam- la Delta Epsilon participated in activities rang- ig from cleaning Memorial Stadium after foot- all games to helping with the Austin Humane ociety Cat Show. For the first time, Gamma Delta Epsilon losted a " fun day " with Youth Advocacy, an rganization for 8-14-year-old children from roubled families. Members of Gamma Delta jipsilon and children from Youth Advocacy got ogether on Oct. 9 to play football and other ;ames and enjoy refreshments. " The kids needed someone to talk to. We howed them that someone out there could take ime out of their busy schedule to share with hem, " Melissa Olivarez, speech pathology se- lior, said. President Rolando De La Rosa, architecture enior, said, " The Youth Advocacy project stood ut in my mind as the most effective project hat Gamma Delta Epsilon participated in. The cids were receptive, and I think that we really ouched their lives. We are planning other ac- ivities with them in the future because we mjoyed our time with them so much. " On March 5, the organization dressed as leprechauns and played music at an early St. Patrick ' s Day party for the elderly at Holy Cross Hospital. " We made up the oddest group of leprechauns that could ever be seen, but the smile on the people ' s faces made it all worth- while, " Rene Garzoria, pharmacy senior, said.

Gamma Phi Alpha held its annual Initiation Banquet on Mar. 1 to welcome new and re- turning members to the organization. After the dinner, which was provided by the UT Division of Food and Housing, President Linda Buccino, honors business junior, spoke about the history of Gamma Phi Alpha and the purpose of the organization. " The purpose of Gamma Phi Alpha is to encourage the women of Andrews, Blanton, Carothers and Littlefield women ' s dormitories to exhibit a desire for knowledge through scho- lastic achievement and to honor their numerous individual accomplishments, " Buccino said. One by one, old and new members alike were called to the podium to add their signatures to the official Gamma Phi Alpha scrapbook. Upon signing the book, new and returning members received a certificate of membership and a yel- low carnation. " It ' s really a great honor and a privilege to be recognized as a member of Gamma Phi Alpha, " Angela Pence, accounting sophomore, said. " And this flower is going to look good in my scrapbook. " The 126 members had only to achieve a 3.! grade point average to be considered for me: bership to the organization. Inductees were r tified of their eligibility for membership in t organization by mail after a confidential lection process. " We weren ' t that active this year.

Each Thursday night Circle K members sort- ;d, packaged and labeled food for the needy at he food bank. Between 90 and 100 organ- zations within a 14-county area spent their time n preparing a ton of food to be given to the icedy each week. " Instead of wasting our spare time watching TV, we did something worthwhile for other people. That ' s what Circle K is all about, " Charles Youngs, RTF junior, said. Circle K International put in a total of 153 1.25 hours of service for the community and campus. Weekly projects included playing bin- go with retired adults at Austin Manor Nursing Home, serving as escorts for SURE Walk on campus and ushering at performances at the Performing Arts Center. " We ' re all really good friends, and we have something going on every day of the week. There is never a dull moment in Circle K, " Membership Chairman, Jennette Rush, biology freshman, said. In March, Circle K held a Basketball Bounce on the West Mall and raised over $300 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They also par- ticipated in the Bowl for Kids Sake along with the Texas Cowboys, Silver Spurs and Child Development Organization in the Texas Union on March 5. " We prepared for the Bowl for Kids Sake Bowl-A-Thon for four months and it definitely paid off. We raised approximately $21,000 for the Big Brother Big Sister Program of Austin, " Youngs said. In March, Circle K was inducted into the Diamond Club at the District Convention in Houston. This meant that they had 50 mem- bers with over 90 percent participation. " It ' s a big honor to get the Diamond Club Award. We started in September with 12 mem- bers and ended up with 53 members. It ' s only getting better, " Youngs said. Besides regular Monday night meetings, the club planned social activities often, including trips to Steve ' s Ice Cream and the dollar movies.

The organization adopted Maplewood El- mentary School in north Austin, sending mem- ers every week to serve as big sisters to children n kindergarten to sixth grade who needed utoring and special interaction. " The teachers pick students who need a little xtra help academically or emotionally, " Pres- dent Molly Dunscombe, elementary education senior, said. " Taking the time to work with the kids is fun because it gives us a chance to break out of our routines as college students to help children who need extra love and attention so that they may possibly become future Long- horns. " The Orange Jackets ' services at Maplewood ranged from tutoring to honoring groups of students with good behavior with a picnic. Helping the PTA with the Spring Carnival on April 23 by working in booths and activities such as the cake walk was another one of their projects with the Adopt-A-School program. " It ' s been neat to have adopted a little sister and have the chance to help her when she needed it. Each week you could tell that the kids were doing a little better with your help, " Cecelia Kane, Spanish pre-med senior, said. The Orange Jackets also acted as official hostesses of the University. They were called on to usher at campus activities like Honors Day on April 9, which recognized juniors and seniors with a grade point average of 3.5 or above. Other events they hosted were the 50th Re- union for Liberal Arts Exes in the spring at Littlefield Home, and the dedication of Little Campus to Heman Sweatt on Apr. 15. They served tea at the salute to Texas in front of the Main Building on Mar. 2, Texas Independence Day and helped form the world ' s largest Long- horn at Memorial Stadium. On Nov. 15 during Dad ' s Day weekend, the Orange Jackets hosted a Parent-Daughter Brunch at the Four Seasons Hotel with guest speaker Shirley Bird Perry. Here the organ- ization ' s tappees were first introduced. The new members were officially initiated and presented with their orange jackets at the Reunion Brunch at the Hyatt on Apr. 10, which was also at- tended by Orange Jacket Alumni. The tappee project for the new members was to serve as huggers on the finish line at the Special Olympics on Apr. 16 at Memorial Sta- dium. Although the Orange Jackets had a wide array of activities to which they gave their time, Dunscombe said, " We ' re always looking for new ways to help out on campus and in Aus- tin.

" We have made an effort to brighten and turn our reputation around, " Tal McAlister, economics junior, said. The Spurs attempted to increase independent enrollment as well as improve their image with the student body. For the first time, the Uni- versity helped the Spurs by sending letters to various organizations on campus to encourage people to attend mixers planned to acquaint members of Spurs with other students. " A lot of people thought that they couldn ' t get into the Silver Spurs unless they knew someone already in. We wanted to show guys from different groups on campus what we were all about and encourage involvement from them, " Bryan Albract, zoology senior, said. The Silver Spurs took part in many activities, from taking care of Bevo to helping out at voting booths during student elections. New men, called Rowels, participated in " hold-ups " where money was collected at intersections for various philanthropies. The Rowels also were active in pep rallies and passed out flyers on West Mall for Texas Independence Day. " We tried to help out the University by passing out flyers for different activities going on and participating in various campus events, " McAlister said. A project hosted by the Silver Spurs was the Chili Cook-Off on April 23 at Auditorium Shores behind Palmer Auditorium. Money was I raised by selling ads to local businesses and! selling tickets to the event to students and I Austin residents. The cook-off took place during i the day with almost 200 teams judged for their chili. T hat night, the Charlie Daniels Band performed for the crowd. " The cook-off was a lot of fun, but in the midst of all the fun, we raised over $ 10,000 for the Austin Boys Club, " McAlister said. by " Lisa Breed REMEMBER THE ALAMO: Silver Spurs members talk to each othet as they pass out flyers to students on the West Mall in order to encourage student involvement in the Texas Independence Day festivities.

" Our major purpose is to assist in money-raising efforts and provide whatever service we can for the local Cerebral Palsy Foundation and its center in Austin. " To raise money for the Cerebral Palsy Foun- dation, Posse held a bowl-a-thon at Highland Lanes on Nov. 14. The bowl-a-thon, organized by Adam Rosenthal, pre-business sophomore, jnd Joseph Dubrof, pre-business sophomore, brought in $650 and was considered the group ' s most successful fundraiser. Posse also helped organize and took part in activities at a picnic with the residents of the Austin Cerebral Palsy Center at Pease Park on April 17. " Being in Posse gives you a sense of re- sponsibility to the community and a really good feeling of accomplishment, " Kyle said. " It truly is a great experience for everyone involved. " Posse was an honor service organization made up of about 115 freshman and sophomores, 100 of which were Greeks and 15 of which were independents. Members were selected at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters according to their scholastic achievement and service to the University and or their frater- nities or sororities. " We provide a group where members of the Greek community and independents get a chance to mix amongst themselves and everyone gets a chance to meet people from other so- rorities and fraternities, " Kyle said. Posse held some social events, like their casual on Mar. 3 1 , in addition to their service-related projects. Posse also created the Round-Up theme, " Hail to the University, " for the parade on April 9.

" Our organization gives each member the opportunity to meet without being classified according to their sorority or independent sta- tus, " Suzanne Scares, president and advertising- marketing junior, said. The Cowgirls held Tap-In Oct. 1 to induct new members. Members included sorority members and independents. Each sorority spon- sored three of its members and one non-member for induction consideration. The newly ' tapped- in ' members were called " heifers " until the next year ' s Tap-In. " Tap-In is a lot of fun for old and new members. When new girls are ' tapped-in, ' it ' s not like you ' re above them, everyone is on the same level as everyone else in the organization, " Lois Slocomb, music education junior, said. Cowgirls enjoyed many social events includ- ing the casual, which took place on Oct. 25 at the Loft, a dance club off Sixth Street. The cowgirls and their dates rode to the casual in ' Dillo buses, which resembled trolley cars and operated in downtown Austin. " This was the first opportunity many of our old and new members had to talk and get to know each other, " Scares said. " Being a Cowgirl is a great way to meet other girls in a relaxed setting where no one is ex- pected to conform to a specific mold. Getting involved in this organization gives members the opportunity to let their true personality shine through, " Ra ndi Shade, Plan II senior, said. by Susan Forth INCREASED INVOLVEMENT j growing service organization must look constantly for ways to expand their serv- ices to benefit those at the University and in Austin who are less fortunate. The Texas Wranglers took on several new service projects in order to fulfill their desire to help others. One of the new projects, held on March 17, was a day of kite flying at Zilker Park with patients from the Austin State School. Flying the kites enabled the patients to enjoy the out- doors and to interact with other people. " We wanted to get them out in the sunshine and give them the attention that they needed. It was a lot of fun for both groups, " Wranglers President Mark Bate, third-year law student, said. Another new event was a holdup for the Capital Area Rehabilitation Center (CARC) on April 23 in which members stood in the busy intersections of the streets of Austin to obtain donations from drivers. They presented a check for $6,800 to the center. " The money will be used for anything from buying a child a wheelchair to paying for med- ical services while they are going through re- habilitation, " Bate said. The Wranglers also added to their list of charity events by giving a barbeque and bingo for the senior citizens at Northwest Mediplex Nursing Home on April 17. Besides engaging in new service pursuits, the Wranglers also remained active in their tra- ditional service projects. Among these service projects was a day of cleanup at CARC on March 6. " We spent a good five or six hours doing general repair work, planting grass and painting the place, " Bate said. Each semester the Wranglers also volunteered their time at Dardin Hills Boy ' s Ranch where they helped build horse stables. They also took the boys to a Longhorn basketball game against Texas Tech. " The main thing we provide foj them is friendship and interaction, " Bate said. I The Wranglers promoted spirit for the men ' l basketball team by attending all home games! They also showed their support by hosting I barbeque for the team at the beginning of thl season, and presenting the Texas Longhorn Bas I ketball Award to senior point guard Alex Broad I way at the UT Basketball Banquet on March 81 Being a member of the Wranglers was de manding, Bate said, but the rewards were well worth it.

Texas Wranglers 305 STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART Ithough many people knew that the Texas Cowboys took part in football season ac- tivities such as firing Smokey the cannon when- ever the Longhorns scored, the truth was that the Cowboys, also a service organization, did much more. " We did quite a bit of work in the com- munity, " John Rutledge, undetermined senior and foreman of the Cowboys, said. Their " number one project, " according to Rutledge, was collecting money for the Austin Association for Retarded Citizens, or AARC. Between the two benefit dances the Cowboys held, the Harvest Moon in the fall, and the Spring Music Festival held on April 15, over $15,000 was raised and given to the AARC. For the Spring Music Festival they brought in two rock and dance bands to draw more of the student population. In the past, the group had brought in some big name country-western bands. " We had gotten away from the campus life, and we wanted to get back to the Uni- versity, " Bob Heintzelman, marketing senior and straw boss of the Cowboys, said. Other benefit projects included a Valentine ' s Day party for the Rosedale School for Retarded Children, and a bowl-a-thon with other groups CLOWNING AROUND: Drew Cozby, Tim Marron and Chad Love share a laugh with a student at the Rosedale School at the Valentine ' s Dance on Feb. 12. in March to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Austin. They also helped in the local Special Olympics which drew children from all or- ganizations for the retarded in the Austin area. One of their traditional fundraising activities was curtailed due to a new law enacted by the Austin City Council. Under this law, practices such as the Cowboys ' " holdups " were banned. Because they could no longer solicit money froi motorists at street corners, they planned to tal their crusade to the local shopping malls. " We ' ve tried to get a lot more into the servid aspects for the community, " Rutledge said. by Michael Grabois V FRONT ROW: Scon John Brymct. Cynthia Lynn Mackintosh, Chanse Lane McLeod.

The Texas Cavaliers had hopes of becom- ing a support group for the UT Baseball Team. Since another group, the Disch-Falk Diamonds, had already assumed this role, the Cavaliers planned to work for the team next year, possibly with the Diamonds. " Our goal was to organize interaction be- tween students and the baseball team. We could ' drum-up ' interest by distributing flyers at West Mall for home games at Disch-Falk Field and generally promote the team, " Ivey said. Ivey also said that, due to their outstanding performances, the baseball team merited more support. " We feel there exists a need for more fan support at Longhorn home games. Their high ranking among other college teams merits increased student support. Hopefully all future Longhorn home games will be sold out. " The 25-member organization held bi- monthly meetings for planning and discussing goals for the following year, once they gained the opportunity to officially support the team. Also in the long-range plans were efforts to increase membership of junior and senior men. " We want to redirect our organization ' s ac- tivities next year to include working with the baseball team and establishing a mutually ben- efitting relationship, " Secretary George Ivey, economics junior, said. The Cavaliers also sponsored several group activities for both social and community pur- poses. They attended football games togeth and volunteered at the Delwood Nursing Cent on Dec. 12.

The Tejas Club , a social and jonorary organization, celebrated some holidays | ' ith a truly original flair. Since 1979, the Tejas Halloween fest took llace at the " Teepee, " the club ' s house. Three |r four jack-o-lanterns decorated the house I rounds. Tradition dictated that, as the party drew to a close, these pumpkins were thrown off the roof. " We . . . score the throws for creativity and the biggest explosion, " Nick Sarantakes, history se- nior, said. Some members, designating themselves " club seers, " studied and interpreted the ar- rangement of the pumpkin seeds that scattered on the ground and predicted the future from the C- r m patterns. The next celebration was the Christmas party, at which club members played out a prohibition legacy. Tejas members voluntarily divided into two groups, the " Lily Whiters " and the " Southern Colonels. " The Lily Whiters tra- ditionally wore white and did not drink, but the Colonels were in staunch support of alcohol consumption. Sarantakes said that the Lily Whiters made a " righteous " attempt to convince the " evil " Southern Colonels of the errors of their ways. The result was a mock debate that lasted ap- proximately a half an hour. " It ' s most fun to add religious overtones to the debate like ' Rum is the devil ' s drink! ' , " Matthew Hughes, finance senior and member of the Lily Whiters, said. The party actually started a day before the debate when the Lily Whiters hid the rum for the party. After the liquor was concealed, the Colonels had 24 hours to find it or they were not allowed to spike the eggnog. The Colonels found the rum in a plastic bag inside a German chocolate cake. The cake had been hollowed out, the rum was inserted, and the cake was capped and frosted. Joseph O ' Driscoll, finance junior, said, " Actually, this was the first time in three years that the Southern Colonels found the rum. It was a really good hiding place. " The last holiday honored was Texas Inde- pendence Day on Mar. 2. The Tejas Club kicked off their traditional celebrations with a cham- pagne breakfast. About 100 distinguished fac- ulty members and graduating students were invited. " This breakfast involves lots of time and effort. It is our special tribute to Texas In- dependence Day and the University, " Sarantakes said. by Lori Seto BREAK TIME: Mark Dawson, business sophomore, takes advantage of an opportunity to get a quick bite after assisting at the breakfast.

The Spooks worked with organizations such as Alpha Phi Omega to promote school spirit and to encourage students to " stay with the school. " " The different spirit organizations coming together has helped raise participation at school activities like pep ral lies and sports events, " Edmonds said. During the fall semester, orange and white ribbons were tied around all the trees to further encourage student involvement. " Our organization has existed since 1941, and we try to encourage new organizations to help keep the traditions going, " Edmonds said. Showing their desire to preserve traditions at the University, the Spooks changed the color of their formal uniforms worn to the football games from red and black to burnt orange. The organization participated in various ac- tivities such as decorating lockers and painting windows of buildings on the drag before sports events. " The coaches of the athletic teams offered support and appreciation of the encouragement we gave to the teams. Coach McWilliams wrote us a letter last semester thanking us for our hard work, " Edmonds said. New members were nominated by resident advisors or Spooks members. After acceptance into the organization, pledges were required to attend a retreat. " We hold a retreat each semester so that our members can get acquainted. It is important for our members to be able to work well together on all of our service projects, and the retreat helps all the members to feel more comfortable around each other, " Edmonds said. by Shelli Smith ARTISTIC CREATIONS: Jeni Logan, communication freshman, and Jennifer Piskun, psychology junior, wash the windows of the University Co-op before painting new slogans for the Texas A M game.

" Our group has a lot of continuity, " Pres- ident Elizabeth Gibson, history-pre-law senior, said in explaining the success of the group. The award, given each year to a person or group exemplifying extraordinary service to the community, came as a reflection of the group ' s willingness to give of themselves to make an- other ' s life more complete. Sundays found members holding church services for residents at the Travis State School. The group had always visited the school, usually on Wednesdays, when members gave dinners to the residents and provided them with the opportunity to talk to a willing listener. Members also had weekly meetings to discuss world issues as they affected the church. In the fall, a parish deacon from Capetown, South Africa came to speak to the group about apart- heid. Another meeting allowed members to listen to Dena Harrison, the new associate rector of All Saints ' Episcopal Church, discuss her views on women and their role in the church. The All Saints ' Episcopal Church, located on 27th street, had funded the group since its beginnings. The church saw the University group as important to the parish since polls taken among its parishioners indicated that many members entered the Episcopalian church during their college years. Gibson said that the group offered students SPREAD THE WORD: Rev. Harrison leads students in a weekly group discussion on international events and their relationship to church issues.

" We do have a chapel open 24 hours, " Gibson said. " Lots of people use it just because they need a quiet place to be. " Members also had access to a large student center complete with pool table, TV and VCR. Student-run Bible studies were also a part of the year ' s activities. The current events discussions dealt with what Gibson called " Co-Dependencies " : peo- ple ' s dependencies on those things harmful to their lives such as drugs, alcohol and destructive relationships. " We just want to give people who want friendship and faith a place to be open and accepted, " Gibson said. WORDS OF WISDOM: Rev. Dcna Harrison speaks to Canterbury Association members on Nov. 1 1. 314 Cantebury Association of Episcopal Students FUN AND FELLOWSHIP erving as an alternative to the Greek sys- tem, Beta Upsilon Chi provided a fra- ilrnal atmosphere for young Christian men who muxl to get together with others like them- llves and participate in activities related to jiristian fellowship. I The fraternity was similar to other fraternities I some ways, but altered some typical Greek lltivities to fit its purposes. They had Rush and a pledgeship each semester. They also enjoyed performing surprise pranks such as waking brothers for a 2 a.m. breakfast. They chose an alternative to the Greek fra- ternity tradition of " Hell Week " by creating " Heaven Week " during which they sent in- spiring notes to pledges. If a brother happened to see another brother on campus, he would delight in challenging him to recite the scripture John Fox worth that had been selected for that particular week. The fraternity sponsored service projects such as helping to renovate the Austin Community Nursery, which was a nursery for under- priviledged children. They painted and redec- orated it to make it a brighter place for the children to play. " The Bible says that by helping others like the children of the nursery, one serves Christ, which is our group ' s only desire, " Daniel Dil- lard, organizational communication senior, said. Fun was also a big part of the group ' s ac- tivities. They sponsored three parties each se- mester to work towards reaching other people interested in fellowship. One of the favorites was the Valentine ' s Day party held Feb. 12 at the Texas Alumni Center. Beta Upsilon Chi was the only men ' s Chris- tian fraternity on campus but they kept in close contact with other men ' s fraternities around the nation. They discussed the probability of start- ing an interfraternal council. " There are no formal plans to create a council, but we are excited that there are other Christian organizations around the nation collaborating to provide alternatives to the Greek system, " Dil- lard said. By creating a group where men with the same involvement with Christ could meet and discuss their experiences through their religion, the group felt as if they were able to " build up each other in the Lord, " Dillard said. " Our members have realized that all they simply have to do is say yes to God about Him dying for our sins.

The pastor of the Lutheran Church near the University bought apples and passed them out to hungry war protestors congregated at the West Mall. Every year since, members of the ministry gave apples to students during the Organization Fair held on the West Mall every September. The appl es were handed out while members repeated their unique motto, " Lutherans understand sin so have an apple on us. " The apple tradition became so popular among members that the Lutheran Campus Ministry decided to call the group ' s newsletter A Peel. Aside from the apple tradition, the Lutheran Campus Ministry promoted unity by seeking to involve members in different activities. The ministry was open to faculty and students and began its year with a Fajita Fest on Sept. 13 for members to become better acquainted. The ministry helped students " seek ways to incorporate faith in the classroom, relationshi and decision-making, " Aus said. The group held Bible studies every week invited guest speakers who discussed such topi as world peace and poverty. The ministry w; particularly concerned with the issue of peact and planned to form a group within the Lu- theran Campus Ministry called APPLE, As- sociation of People Propelling Lutheran Excel- lence. ,;..

Pakistani Students Association 317 FROM ACROSS THE SEA jj n the spirit of the friendly rivalry between Singaporean and Malaysian students at Tex- as universities, the Singapore Students As- sociation traveled to College Station over Spring Break to take part in the annual Spring Games Competition. Singaporean and Malaysian students from University of Houston, Texas Tech, Texas A M and the University of Texas joined together on March 12-13 to compete in such sporting events as volleyball, badminton, basketball, tennis and captain ' s ball, a Singaporean version of bas- ketball in which no dribbling is allowed. " Singapore used to be a part of Malaysia, but in 1965, the two countries split over political differences. Both peoples are still friendly with each other, and the spring games are our chance to come together and have fun here in Amer- ica, " Barry Chua, marketing senior, said. " Unfortunately, our team came in second place overall, but everyone had a great time. " The associations also took " Austin Revisited " trips in and around Austin, visiting Barton Springs, Zilker Park and Pedernales Falls. " Singapore is about two-fifths the size of Houston, so there isn ' t much room to travel around. We like to take advantage of the wide open spaces in the United States, " Chua said. The group held a potluck dinner for grad- uating seniors on May 7. Everyone brought a dish typical of their home region in Singapore. " A Singaporean ' s favorite pastime is eating, " Gerard Chan, graduate student in mechanical engineering, said. Chua said that many Singaporeans studied at American universities because they were not admitted to Singapore ' s national university, which only accepted about 6,000 students per year. " The government has sent an increasing number of students to America on scholarships for a broader education and because the col puter science and engineering programs are v| good. Many Singaporeans feel obligated to hard because their family is counting on and students are eager to ' prove themselv because they were not admitted into the ui versity at home, " Chua said. Before coming to America, some Singapoii ans were under the impression that all Amj icans were " party animals. " " I was surprised that they study so much I Hong Im Tan, graduate student in advertisirj said. Referring to both Americans and Singapoil ans, Chan Seng, mechanical engineering sop I omore, said, " The golden rule is not to gel eralize.

To preserve the literary traditions their native culture, the Vietnamese Stu- lents Association published Dae Sun, a jour- containing poetry, art, stories, opinions and nessages in the Vietnamese language. The journal was organized and printed by the association, and distributed free of charge to members at the final meeting of the year. " The Vietnamese language is often forgotten. Dae Sun encourages Vietnamese to learn and speak the language, " Thuong Nguyen, me- chanical engineering senior, said. To raise money to publish Dae Sun, the association sponsored several parties at the Un- ion, during which both American and Viet- _ namese music was played. " It seems like all 400 Vietnamese students at the University show up at our parties. Of course, anyone is invited and the crowd usually overflows into the hallway, " Renee Ton, French graduate student, said. The association sponsored other events to keep the Vietnamese language and culture alive at the University such as the annual picnic at Zilker Park in March, and brown bag lunches throughout the year. " Unfortunately, most of us speak English with each other. Meeting for lunch gives students the chance to speak and listen to Vietnamese, " Ton said. On Friday nights, association members prac- ticed basketball and volleyball for the annual sports tournament held among Vietnamese stu- dent teams from 24 universities in Texas, Okla- homa, Kansas and Louisiana. The weekend in- volved competition in a variety of sports ranging from basketball to swimming, and took place over spring break week at the University of Texas at Arlington. The UT Vietnamese basketball teams made it to the " final four " out of the 24 teams. " It was really exciting. We lost by only six points in both games and took third and fourth place, " Hiep Nguyen, actuarial science senior, said. by Lori Seto ALL SMILES: Kiet Nguyen, physics junior, enjoys the annual picnic held at Zilker Park in March.

Vietnamese Students Association 319 PEACE THROUGH SERVICE veryone has an inherent need to do good things, " Brian Stott, regional director of the Collegiate Association of the Research of Principles, said. " We try to provide a dual focus for University students: providing internal and external growth through encouraging dis- cussion of values. " To encourage students to examine their val- ues, CARP sponsored a semester-long essay con- test for undergraduate and graduate students. Participants could choose from three topics: Absolute Values and Their Embodiment in (role) Models, Overcoming the Separation Be- tween the Natural Sciences and Humanities, and Merging Cultures and the Brotherhood of Man. Entries were judged according to orig- inality and creativity as well as the content of the essay. The top three entries received cash prizes of $100, $75 and $50, respectively. " The lack of values is a condition becoming prevalent among college students, " Hong-Yu Kovic, continuing student in liberal arts, said. " Society has placed enormous pressure on to- day ' s students to achieve material wealth, most- ly at the expense of values and morals.

" Through our efforts, we hope to encourage discussion and thought on the importance of the quality of human re- lationships and values, " she said. Films, guest speaker engagements and " cultural nights " were some of the events that CARP sponsored to help all interested students and members develop universal values. Food drives for East Austin Community Center and painting houses for elderly Austin citizens helped develop a sense of community. CARP members felt that developing discipline helped meet the need for inter peace. To help members increase their discipline, CARP offered a class in Won : Do, a form of martial arts, to anyone who interested. The class, which was instructed CARP staff member Hidetoshi Aota, met Anna Hiss Gym from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesc and Thursday afternoons. by Zuriel Loera JcffH 320 CARP AWARDING EXCELLENCE ' ervice begets service, and serving the Uni- versity ' s students and alumni was one of the ain concerns of the Ex-Students ' Associ- tion. With the help of its volunteers throughout state, country and even other nations, the xes coordinated UT scholar recruitment drives, jisisted in student-alumni relations, and pro- lided more than 225 academic scholarships to outstanding incoming UT students. It was hoped that scholarship recipients and the UT students at large would benefit from the hard work and dedication of alumni volunteers. " The Exes do everything for the students, to help them come to UT and help them once they get here, " 1987 scholarship recipient Susan Clark, graduate student in aerospace engineer- ing, said. . -; Ex-Students ' Association Associate Director Susan Kessler said, " We ' re there for both the students and the alumni, and we try to help. Communication and involvement is what we ' re all about. " According to What We Do And Why , an Ex- Students ' publication, " Attracting top scholars to UT is one of the Associaton ' s oldest pri- orities. " To that end, the Exes awarded the Texas Excellence Awards for Scholarship and Lead- ership to eight entering freshman in the top five percent of their high school class on Sept. 9 at the Alumni Center. Additionally, the five 1984 recipients of the award were honored at the dinner, which marked their senior year at the University. " In my speech I was able to thank the generous sponsors of the Texas Excellence Award and to describe the motivation to excel which the award has provided me, " Kirk Launi- us, economics senior, said. Much of this leadership, community involve- ment and service embodied in scholarship re- cipients were qualities found in the Ex-Students.

YOU CAN NOT GET AWAY: Ending their performance with the finale of " The Eyes of Texas, " the Longhorn Singers show their enthusiasm to the crowd. J22 Longhorn Singers BIGGEST SHOW EVER p - V j urviving for 30 years at the University of Texas has never been easy for anyone. But the Longhorn Singers have managed to do just that and much more. The Longhorn Singers held their 30th An- niversary Show on Apr. 16 to commemorate their 30th year in existence. Invitations were sent out to all alumnus of the group and the entire campus was invited to the presentation. " This was the biggest show that the Long- horn Singers have ever done, and we wanted everyone to join in the festivities with us, " Christina Melton, government senior, said. Activities were planned for the entire week- end of the show. The Radisson Plaza and Waller Creek Plaza hotels sponsored receptions for the members and alumnus, and a bar-b-que took place at noon before the evening show. Kathryn Neal, international business junior, attributed the success of the show to the strong alumnus program. HITTING THE HIGH NOTES: Longhorn Singers sing a song at the Dad ' s Day festivities on Nov. 14. " There is a lot of continuity between the old and the new members. The alumnus have really been helpful in planning the show along with us, " said Neal. " The show featured songs from musicals of the past 30 years, ranging from " Oklahoma " to " Phantom of the Opera. " Special costumes and elaborate staging were also preparations taken to highlight the show. Another aspect of the 30th Anniversary Show that set it apart from other performances of the Longhorn Singers was t he use of " specialty numbers. " These were solos done by individuals in the group ranging from comedy excerpts to love song ballads. " We aren ' t like all the other choral groups on campus. We like to sing popular songs that a younger audience can identify with instead of classical songs, and we also choreograph dances to be presented along with our numbers so the audience will enjoy a more exciting perfor- mance, " Melton said. by Lisa Breed !

Longhorn Singers 323 ONE BIG, HAPPY FAMILY f inging, devotional services and spreading the gospel, that ' s what we do, " Vanessa Jefferson, education junior, said. Jefferson, president of Inner-visions of Blackness Gospel Choir said choir members were serious about their love for singing and spreading the gospel. " But we manage to have fun doing it, " she said. lola Taylor was an informal advisor for the group and acted as a liaison between the choir and the churches. Taylor viewed the choir as an effective organization run by students. " The choir is a chance for students to gain oppor- tunities in leadership and inspiration while re- taining a part of their heritage, " Taylor said. " The group ' s members are united through a love of music and a desire to participate in a common cultural tradition, " Taylor said. Most members were not music majors but were in- volved in church choirs in their hometown. Innervisions gave them a chance to continue singing in a choir. Innervisions participated in many events over the semester. The choir traveled to churches all over Texas to perform. They also participated in choir festivals and church retreats as well as choral workshops. The choir received several awards at these events, many of them for first place. The group also gave contributions to churches for the needy in the congregation and performed charity concerts to raise money for the church. Innervisions received much of its funding through members ' dues paid each semester. " However, some funds came from private con- tributions, parents and former members, " Tay- lor said. " I enjoy interaction with people I have some- thing in common with, " Ronald Nesbitt, liberal arts sophomore, said. " My love for singing is what drew me to the group. " Jefferson said the group was more than just an organization. " We ' re like a family, " she said. " It ' s nice to be around people who love what they are doing and to do it so beautifully.

The relaxed conver- sation between the members gives no indication that in less than an hour their formal fall concert will begin. When the clock struck eight, the group of friends filed into Bates Recital Hall dressed in formal black attire and ready to sing. And that they did. The enthusiastic group performed a variety of pieces ranging from a spiritual to a traditional German song. Although the 68 members came from various backgrounds, they all had one thing in common they loved to sing. Scott Sullivan, engi- neering freshman, said, " I like the chorus, the people are fun, and we get to sing that ' s my favorite part. " Carla Fraga, a music senior and three-year member, said, " The diversity is the best aspect of this chorus. University Chorus attracts people with different interests and gives both music and non-music majors a chance to sing. " After the performance, the group celebrated their hard work at a party complete with camer- as and the remaining treble clef-shaped cookies. " The concert was a success because every- thing went smoothly and there weren ' t any major mistakes, " Lynn Surles, music education junior, said.

Muhael K.ipniu 326 University Chorus MUSIC REACHES TEENS 11 Delaying a message through music is an age- old practice, and Ensemble 109 used this method of communication to teach young peo- ple to avoid using drugs. In February, Ensemble 109 performed a " Just Say No to Drugs " concert at Porter Junior High School. With a reggae-type song titled Just Say No, written by their director, Gary Powell, the group felt that they chose the right way to tell young people not to do drugs. " It was really a great idea. Gov. [Bill] Cle- ments ' wife Betty spoke to the kids, and then an ex-addict told his story, but when we performed our song, we could tell that the kids were really listening to what we had to say. I saw some of the kids around town after the presentation, and they would say, ' There ' s one of the people who sangjaj Say No at our school, ' " Jeanie Runion, RTF senior, said. The group dressed " hip " for the presentation TAKE NOTE OF THIS: Ensemble 109 Director Gary Powell arranges a song for the Spring Concert on Apr. 8. to show the kids that they could be different and still be " cool. " " We go out of our way to be different from one another. That ' s one of the main reasons we attract a young audience, " Runion said. The group also performed small concerts for area businesses and organizations. In October, the group performed at the Southern Medical Convention in San Antonio. " Our group is different because we aren ' t a show choir. We are oriented to today ' s music, " Runion said. Many of the songs performed by Ensemble 109 were written by Gary Powell, who was a local record producer and visiting lecturer in music. Powell trained the members for studio work and the music business. " There was only one music major in the group. Music majors were welcome, but we didn ' t study classical music. We ' re not your average college glee club, " Runion said. by Lisa Breed FRONT ROW: John While, Thom- as Hale, Fredrick Allen Thomas, Dana Gail Gam, Christopher Alan Wright. Rebecca E. Penbenhy.

They majored in engineering and Eng- lish, business and biology, music and math. They came to Austin for one reason: to be in the nationally renowned Showband of the South- west. They were the Longhorn Band. " They are all a bunch of very talented stu- dents, " Band Director Glenn Richter said. Each one had to be talented to pass the auditions held at the beginning of each se- mester. No one was exempt from tryouts, not even an " old man " who had spent time in the band during previous semesters. Everyone was required to audition to be in the band, and competition was fierce: 500 students competed for only 350 spots. Tara Bernhard, LHB pres- ident and graduate student in speech pathology, said that the term " hell week " took on a literal meaning as students marched and played in the sweltering August heat. But for those who made it, hell week later became Heaven. Recruiting for band members just coming out of high school was just as competitive as the recruiting of football players. Current and for- mer Longhorn Band members returned to their former high schools to try to convince seniors : audition for the band. Virtually all of those who eventually did joiij the band were from within the state, although few hailed from other parts of the country. ThJ band even boasted a " Yankee " or two. Thl Longhorns ' reputation drew prospective march! ers. " Most other bands are just not as serious a| Texas, " Stacy Beall, advertising junior, said. The band was a true cross-section of Unij versify life.

A freshman coming into the Longhorn Band had the op- portunity to make 350 new friends. The band also offered the thrills of playing to a capacity crowd of 80,000 at Memorial Stadium or per- forming in San Antonio and Houston. The " Bandorama, " a concert usually held in Austin each April, was held instead at the Wortham Center in Houston on Valentine ' s Day to help the Houston chapter of the Ex- Students ' Association. The band also played in the Galveston Mardi Gras celebration, led the Fiesta Flambeau Parade on the last night of Fiesta in San Antonio in late April, played at the football banquet and at the basketball games. After the football season was over, there was still much for the band to do. The spring bands were composed of three concert bands and a jazz band, all of which were open to those who might not have been in the fall marching band. In the meantime, there were parties and picnics to help hold together the social unity of the band. Along with Assistant Director Paula Crider and Assistant to the Director Bill Haenel, Di- rector Glenn Richter guided the band with the help of 36 section leaders. They taught their sections on the field, grouped according to in- struments, and acted as the liaison between the students and the directors. Richter just completed his eighth year with the Longhorn Band, coming from the Uni- versity of Michigan where he was also band director. He came to the University, his alma mater, because he had " an opportunity to build a better program. " Indeed, the Longhorn Band won the prestigious Sudler Trophy in the 1986- 87 season for having the best college band program in the nation. " One of the greatest strengths of the band is the academic achieve- ments of its members: the average grade point average in the band is about 3-2, " Richter said. He was also proud of the fact that for the first time since 1984, the Longhorn Band had been able to attend every football game away from Austin. Beall said his reason for joining the Longhorn Band was simple. " It was just the most awe- some band I had ever seen before. The energy they put into everything was just amazing. The band does so much for the University, and I liked being a part of every victory and eve- rything that happened here. " SIXTH ROW: Cassandra Raeanne Smith, John G.

Longhorn Band 331 PARTY ON THE PATIO: The Longhorn Band plays on the Texas Union patio during the Dad ' s Day festivities. HUP, TWO, THREE, FOUR: Under the direction of John Julian, graduate student in applied music, the march- ing band rehearses at Memorial Stadium. Mithael Scravaio 332 Longhorn Band . . . and exhilaration Officially formed in 1900 by a chemistry I professor, the original Longhorn Band consisted of just 16 men who bought their instruments at a pawnshop in downtown Austin for $ 1 50. Women were first allowed to march during the Oklahoma game in 1957 when many of the men came down with the flu, and have been an integral part of the band ever since. Other traditions also dated back decades. Big I Bertha, " the Sweetheart of the Longhorn ! Band, " was obtained from the University of Chicago in 1955, where she had sat unused in the room where the atomic bomb was de- veloped. Rumor had it that Bertha was ra- dioactive. Bertha was seen at all home games and at the Oklahoma game in Dallas. Another symbol of the band was the cowbells members rang during games. The cowbells, Beall said, were " the band ' s most deadly weapon. When we ring those bells, we ' re letting the team know we ' re still behind them, even when we ' re in unfriendly territory. " The tradition most visible to the rest of the campus is the wearing of the beanies by new band members. The freshmen wore their beanies for a period of five weeks at the be- ginning of each school year. Three special cer- emonies marked their transformation to " old men " this year: the first, before the Auburn game, when they were allowed to wear the Stetson and jacket for the first time; the second, when they heard of the Alumni Band ' s ex- periences in the Longhorn Band; and finally, at the formal initiation when they were allowed to remove their beanies. These caps had to be carefully guarded, as they are also coveted by members of other Southwest Conference bands. According to Bernhard, the wearing of the beanies tied the freshmen class together, and they were worn with pride as a symbol of unity. It also helped the " old men " learn the names of the new members. by Michael Grabois STAFF FRONT ROW: Jodi Elise Drake, Michelle Marie Martin. SECOND ROW: Lee McCormick Womble.

Duties of Tau Beta Sigma included painting the flags, repairing broken cowbells, mending band uniforms, providing water to band mem- bers after rehearsals and at games and assisting in loading and unloading travel buses. They also delivered " survival kits " to Longhorn Band members on Dead Day during the fall semester. These kits included cookies, candy, soup, juice and Pop Tarts. " We ' re always here for the band, and willing to do what we can to make things run smooth- er, " Vice President Mary Kaigler, psychology senior, said. The sorority also generated all the revenue that was needed for band services. During Band Week on Aug. 23-29, Tau Beta Sigma mem- bers made over 500 sandwiches for sack lunches which were sold to students trying out for Longhorn Band. The women were also respon- sible for selling records and tapes and other Longhorn Band paraphernalia. " The money we made all went back into the band to cover expenses during the semester. We work to break even, not to make a profit, " Michelle Ruhlman, music education senior, said.

" " Anywhere we re needed, we try to help, " President Stephen McMillin, history senior, said. " Unlike other chapters at other campuses, we are dedicated entirely to band-related ac- tivities. " Group members provided refreshments for band members at halftime of football games and passed out the cowbells that band members used to cheer on the football team. Loading equipment, building band props and providing transportation to band functions were other services the members provided. " Our goal is to ensure the success of the fall marching band and spring ensembles, " Mike Korte, computer science senior, said. " We help with the materials necessary for rehearsals, pro- vide water for rehearsal breaks and sponsor social events for the band. " The fraternity sponsored a party for the band on April 8 and co-sponsored other parties with other band groups throughout the year. Kappa Kappa Psi, along with its sister so- rority Tau Beta Sigma, hosted a regional con- vention on Jan. 22 for other Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma chapters from around the area. Over 125 people from as near as Southwest Texas State and as far away as Central Arkansas State came to listen to seminars and lectures on band activities and other social functions.

" We play a lot of funk and a lot of rock-n-roll to boost the spirit of the crowd, " Band Director Bill Haehnel said. Tunes like The Joint Starts, Jumping and Pinball Wizard revived the crowd and fired up the players on the court. " Anything we can do in good taste to help keep the crowd in the game we will do, " Haehnel said. Megan Randolph, magazine journalism jun- ior, said that the highlight of the season oc- curred on Feb. 6, when Texas hosted Arkansas. Members of the rhythm section of the band spontaneously played a couple of measures of melodies like Louie, Louie , Tequila and others after each Texas score or steal. The rhythm section went a step further and played an orig- inal song entitled Fried Chicken at key moments to cheer on the team. " The song its lyrics and music was composed entirely by the rhythm band section, " Randolph said. " At the end of the piece, band members would shout ' Fried Chicken. ' Soon the fans behind us, the Texas Wranglers and the cheerleaders joined in the act. " The efforts of the band to rally the fans and the team prompted praise from UT basketball coach Bob Weitlich. In addition, a new group composed of band members and cheerleaders formed to increase fan support of the basketball team. " The Arkansas and SMU games were great, but the SMU victory was sweeter, " Randolph said. " The fact that SMU was ranked first in the conference helped the band and the fans become more involved and made the upset more ex- citing. " According to Haehnel, other Southwest Con- ference basketball bands took notice of the UT band, considering it the best in the conference. by Zuriel Loera TOP BRASS: Melanie Pace, Ronald Fries and Conan Burnes rehearse at the Frank Erwin Center on Feb. 17.

Members were carefully selected from the ighorn Band by the founding members liemselves for uniqueness in their personality, lothes and even the way they played their instruments. " Our personal philosophy is to accept people for who they are and to simply enjoy ourselves, " Timothy Mohle, pre-business freshman, said. Originally, a majority of the members were drummers, but the group expanded to include YOU DON ' T SAY: Richard Hung, Paul Bieraugel, John Hinojosa and Paul Scully exchange wild stories at a Delta Gamma Eta party on Feb. 26. John Foxworth players of other instruments. Out of the 29 members, eight of them were women, or " Gourdheads. " The students responsible for founding the fraternity were John Hinojosa, music senior, Steve Pittman, English senior, and Dan Willis, an alumnus. " We wanted to form a group that would promote individuality and uniqueness, so we called ourselves the Gourdheads, " Pittman said. " We got the idea while riding a crowded el- evator at our hotel. The three of u s were hungover from the New Year ' s Eve celebrations the night before. The door opened on the second floor and someone yelled ' Take the stairs! ' But the person needing to use the elevator was an old woman in a wheelchair. She said, ' Y ' all just gourd head I ' ll wait. ' And the name stuck. " One of the biggest functions of the year for the Gourdheads was the Tag-Team Kamakazi Race on Oct. 31. " This was a volunteer event in which a team member drank a kamakazi every five minutes. He then tagged his partner, who drank five minutes later. The winner was the one who was left standing, " Pittman said. The Gourd-a-Rama Bash Party was held during Round-Up weekend, after the Band-a- Rama, an all-day performance held at the Per- forming Arts Center. The Fiesta del Gourde was held on April 23 after the band marched in the Fiesta Flambeau Parade in San Antonio. The group also enjoyed sponsoring nightly parties during " Hell Week " for the band dur- ing the summer, though everyone was required to be at practice at 8 a.m. " It was an op- portunity for us to introduce the freshman to our Gourdhead traditions, " Hinojosa said. by Andrea Hood FRONT ROW: MK had Thomas Mills.

In winter, basketball season took over, and baseball was the game for springtime. Students and Austinites alike came out by the thousands to cheer on the University ' s three most sen- sational varsity teams. But hidden in the shadows of Texas ' re- nowned varsity program were dozens of in- terscholastically competitive, non-varsity teams which yearned for the same kind of status. From soccer to water skiing, from horseback riding to lacrosse, such teams devoted a good deal of time and energy not only to their games, but to their very survival. Lacrosse team President Jerome Crowder, an- thropology junior, expressed the wipespread frustration among these teams. " We consider ourselves varsity in the way we practice, in the way we coach, and in the way we play. We comply with all the regulations of the Varsity Association. We ' re just not varsity in the eyes of the University, " he said. The issue was in part a question of prestige. UT Soccer Club member Craig Langston, Rus- sian senior, said, " We ' d like to play some of the schools where soccer is big, out on the West Coast or the East Coast. But a lot of schools don ' t want to play against a soccer ' club. ' They want to play other varsity teams. " Far more important in a practical sense, how- ever, was funding. " Cost is the most significant hurdle, " Dr. Jim Vick, chairman of the UT Athletic Council, said. " When you start a var- sity team you have to pay for equipment, coach- ing, travel and scholarships. " Without varsity status, the teams had to shoulder most of the financial burden them- selves. The Division of Recreational Sports did contribute, upon request, a small portion of each team ' s travel expenses, but the lion ' s share was paid with membership dues and other fun- draising activities. Kristen Cook of the UT Water Ski Team said, " This year we held a water ski marathon for the Big Brothers Big Sisters group. We raised about $2,000, which will be put toward our expenses. " Several of the teams expressed an interest in seeking outside sponsors, but the administration frowned on such efforts. " The University makes it hard to get sponsors, " Cook said, " They ' re very concerned about whose name will appear on the shirts of a University of Texas team. " All the teams vying for varsity status agreed that the best way to achieve that goal was to catch and hold the University ' s eye. Thus the water ski team said that the Olympic Com- mittee ' s decision to include that sport in the 1992 games was a big step forward. Also, Cook said, " The American Water Ski Association took us in last year, and that helped our stand- ing. " Winning competitions was an obvious way to attain visibility. Annie Burwell, zoology junior, head of the equestrian team, took her 12 mem- bers to Tennessee in March to compete against 18 other schools. " We cleaned up, " she said. " We took the whole thing. " Burwell argued, as did many of the rep- resentatives of other teams, that public interest in her sport was strong enough to warrar attention from the University. She cited hors competitions in Dallas and Houston which dre- crowds of 8- 10,000. Some of the other teams tried to increas public interest by helping to start teams i schools across the state. The UT Soccer Club, fc instance, ran a soccer camp each summer fc high school students, while the Lacrosse Tear sponsored a lacrosse clinic to teach the basics c starting up a team. Langston and Crowder in dicated that there was a great deal of talent fc their respective sports in Texas high schools an that by cultivating it, they hoped to recrui many strong players in coming years. But even with such planning and determi nation it would be an uphill climb all the way " I don ' t think the future looks bright for in creasing the number of varsity sports, " Vicl said. " This year the athletic budget is reall struggling, partly because the Texas economy i soft. " Even in a robust economy, Vick said, basebal and football were the only sports that generatec revenue. No other team made a profit fron their operations. " What we make on footbal finances the entire varsity program, " he said. In spite of these problems, the teams ' hope ran high. The soccer team, Langston said, hac asked for varsity status three times in the 2( years of its existence and, he said, " we ' ll keep or asking until we get it.

The tapes wen- among the many describing job titles and listing potential employers at resources available to students in search of a can. 340 Profesiionali EARCH Only 20 percent of all jobs are advertised. The hidden job market offers many unknown opportunities. 1 Your career may not be in the classifieds . . . he toughest decision each college student had to make was f L deciding on a major that would become a life-long career. y Luckily, the Career Center offered assistance to find the answer to this perplexing question; one source was the Career Opportunities Directory. The C.O.D., first compiled over the summer, was an extensive set of notebooks cross-referenced by job title, re- quired skills, company and city. The black notebooks, al- though less than one year old, were tattered and torn from use. The binders overflowed with sought-after career facts. J " The information was summarized in the notebooks so that students could access it easily, " Coordinator of Library Information Kathy Strawser said. To compile the book the Career Center sent mailers to over 5000 Texas companies and requested information on entry level positions for college graduates, methods for students to contact the company and summer employment. " The C.O.D. was initially established as a means for us to know what was going on with Texas employers. It was also designed to get information from where most of the jobs were going to be, that is, in smaller to mid-size companies. Most people thought that more jobs were in large companies and that was just not true, " Strawser said. " We initiated the C.O.D. because there was talk about the hidden job market for graduates. Of all the jobs only 20 percent are advertised, that means finding a job is the result of who you know, being in the right place at the right time, or creating a position for yourself, " Coordinator of Job Search Services Eileen Mahoney said. " Rather than just put our graduates in touch with recruiters who represent big corporations we needed to give them some kind of tool to show them who the small businesses were and give them names of people within Texas who they could contact, " Mahoney said. According to Mahoney, the greatest growth in business occurred in companies with fewer than 100 employees. " There was no way for students to get in touch with those businesses unless they did it on their own. That is why we started the Career Opportunities Directory, " she said. Although the exact success of the Career Opportunities Directory was yet unknown due to its new status, Career Center personnel all agreed that it was an asset to any student looking for career answers. According to Mahoney, the center discovered small problems with both students and employers. First, even though the C.O.D. made job hunting easier, students were wary of the self-placement message because it required extended work. Also, the Career Center did not advertise the C.O.D. as much as it planned due to lack of company response. " We are currently working to get more surveys returned by working with the Chamber of Commerce very closely so that they can encourage the businesses to respond as well as provide us with a more targeted mailing list, " Mahoney said. respond t by Christi McCord PROFESSIONALS EDITED BY CHRISTI McCORD Professionals 341 Dallas trip enlightens ad students The Richards Group and Tracy-Locke, the two largest advertising agencies in Texas, welcomed UT Advertising Club members to Dallas on their annual field trip Nov. 12-13. " I had a great time learning about the agen- cies and their national clients. The most im- portant thing I did learn, though, is what I did not want to do in advertising, " Matt McCutch- in, advertising senior, said. McCutchin, previously interested in the " high-pressure " account management aspect of advertising, decided that an account executive ' s position in a large agency meant " stress from 18 different directions " after watching the Richards Group ' s executives operate during a normal work day. " Seventy-five hours per week was just not my cup of tea. I have decided to go a different route of advertising, but don ' t ask me what, " McCutchin said. Members toured the agencies, spoke to ex- ecutives and learned the intricacies of the ad- vertising industry. They visited the research, media, creative and account management de- partments according to their particular interests. " One account executive showed us a new product the agency was working on that hadn ' t yet been test-marketed. He informed us how they might market and position the product and FRONT ROW.

Although members worked four or more hours a week in the office and handled clients from the Austin community, they were not previously given credit for J377K, the public relations internship. The students had to work for other companies in order to fulfill this re- quirement. Under the new policy students were able to fulfill their internship requirement and get valuable experience through work with Cre- ative Communication. " We think that by interning in an organ- ization structured as much as possible like a public relations agency, students get much more out of it, " Administrative Director and Account Executive Jennifer Kay, public relations senior, said. " It ' s a very productive atmosphere. " The organization represented a number of clients, including the Texas Medical Associ- ation, the Austin Child Guidance Center and the Heritage Society of Austin. " We serve them in a variety of ways, " Kay said. " We maintain media relations, send out press releases, write feature stories, provide graphics for brochures. We model ourselves after a professional agency as much as possible. " In return, clients provided scholarships for the members of the group and also paid a $75 fee every month. The scholarships enabled some students to choose Creative Communication over other paid internships, and the monthly fee was used to pay office costs. Each member represented a client and met with that client at least once a week. While the opportunity to earn internship credit was an incentive to join the organization, most students were attracted by the chance to work in a student-run public relations agency. " When they go out into the job market, they can say that they did more than just internship, " Kay said. " They can say that they worked in the context of a real agency.

The students were attending a workshop that MISTIC organized to interest young minority students in communications careers. Local pro- fessionals such as Magic 95 disc jockey Darlene Lewis and Channel 36 anchorwoman Tonya Cooke spoke to students about opportunities in the Austin media industry. " The students were really interested because we had people who were actually in the field that they could identify with, " Treasurer Belvolyn Smith, journalism senior, said. " These were people they ' ve heard on the radio and seen on television. It really made them think about careers in communications, and that ' s what our goal is.

" We need to get minority students oriented toward communi- cations at an early age, " Smith said. " By high school, their plans are pretty well set. Also, many television and radio stations have workshops for younger students, and they need to find out about them. " Members of the organization found that local newspaper, radio, and television professionals were very supportive of the workshop. " They were very willing to work with us, " Smith said. " Being in the field, they know that there ' s a real need to recruit minority students. " Smith also said one of the most valuable things the students gained was an understand- ing of what it takes to have a career in com- munications. " They think that being a news anchor is just for pretty people, " she said. " They don ' t realize that those people also have to write. They learned that if they can write and they can speak, they can do that too.

" The panel was arranged so that students would have the opportunity to meet profes- sionals in the Austin area and to get a better idea of what public relations specialists do before they actually do it, " group President Natalie Barreiro, public relations senior, said. The professional advisors represented three sectors of the PR field although originally four sectors would have been represented. Larry Springer of Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners represented an association, Chris Taylor of Todd McCorkle and Taylor represented an agency and Jim Goodwin and Dave Lopez of Southwestern Bell represented a corporation. A representative from the non- profit sector had to cancel at the last minute. With the president and vice president acting as mediators, questions concerning the differ- ences between typical days in agencies, asso- ciations, and corporations and the " flack image " of public relations services were discussed. " This was the first time we have done the panel and it worked really well. Maybe next time we will add media representatives from newspapers or radio to see what they expect from public relations, " Barreiro said. Other programs that the Public Relations Student Society of America sponsored so that students could meet professionals in a non- academic environment were the mentor pro- gram and the professional mixer. " Our meetings in classrooms are a little for- mal so we sometimes have gatherings in a more casual atmosphere. In the mentor program the professionals help the students with resumes, portfolios and interviews. Maybe they will even take them out to lunch, " Barreiro said. The professional mixer was a riverboat cruise for both students and professionals. It allowed students to network and make new friends. The group ' s most notable achievement was winning both Outstanding Newsletter and Out- standing Community Service awards at the Na- tional Public Relations Convention Nov. 7- 1 1 in Los Angeles, Ca. " It is very unusual for a chapter to win two national awards in one year and this is our second year in a row to win two, " Barreiro said. PRSSA won the community service award for developing a program of Public Service An- nouncements, which were free radio spots, and a program to get more volunteer teachers for the Texas Adult Literacy Council. by Christi McCord FRONT ROW: Amanda Kane Youngblood, Michael James Palenchar, Gerard Joseph Haddican, Christopher Raymond Bjornson, Paige Nicole Porter.

Laura Darby Public Relations Student Society of America 345 Class teaches TV camera techniques In an attempt to help members master important skills that would aid them in their future radio-television-film classes, the RTF Club offered a class that taught members how to use camera equipment. The class was especially valuable to RTF club members because once members completed the course, they took a test to obtain certification in order to use camera equipment at Austin Access Television. Certified students were allowed to go to Aus- tin Access TV, a local cable channel, and use the station ' s camera equipment to produce shows of their choice. " Students have been known to produce eve- rything from documentaries to even soap oper- as, " President Jackie Cannon, RTF sophomore, said. " But since ATV did not edit or censor the programs the variety of productions was very diverse. " Student productions were made under the condition that they would be given to ATV to be aired on public access television. " This class was especially helpful to lower- division students because they became familiar with the uses of sophisticated camera equip- ment and when they reach upper-division class- es they will be that much more prepared, " Treasurer Valerie Ahern, RTF sophomore, said. Along with the camera class, the RTF club offered members the opportunity to take a screenwriting class.

M Workshops give women the edge Defeating sexual discrimination in the workplace has long been a goal of career women; thus, Women In Communication attempted to prepare its members for this com- petition by arranging workshops throughout the year that were designed to strengthen job skills. W1C1 held two workshops that were par- ticularly helpful to its members, a resume- writing workshop on Feb. 24 and an inter- viewing workshop on April 6. The workshops gave members an idea of what was expected of them from potential employers when they began to look for a job in their career field. The resume workshop, conducted by Mindy Johnson from the Career Center, helped mem- bers assemble their resume effectively. Members learned to draw from their experiences and find skills that pertained to their selected career when writing their resumes. " It is difficult for our members to write about themselves concisely and positively, " President Debbie Dalton, advertising junior, said. " But with Ms. Johnson ' s help our members learned to do this effectively. " Members also got tips on the length of their resume and what to include and what not to include when writing it. Members were allowed to bring their own resumes to get advice and ideas from the work- shop. " The size of the workshop allowed me to get individual help on my resume, " Lanette Varnacloe, advertising junior said. The interviewing workshop was designed to give members a chance to get advice from communication professionals. The professionals gave members tips on how to dress and ques- tions asked as well as how to answer them.

They earned points by participating in group ac- tivities, meetings and social functions. The more points earned, the greater their chances of being included in the resume book. The book consisted of the resumes of the top point earners in AMA.

The organization was divided into commit- tees. This enabled more students to become involved in AMA.

Harvey Ray Madrigal 348 American Marketing Association Honors Business Association ssociation increases its horizons f After spending several years primarily rep- resenting honors business students, the Honors Business Association expanded to become more of an active student organization. Regularly scheduled meetings, social activities and guest speakers all helped members become more involved with the organization, while the officers continued to represent the students ' academic concerns in the college. " The Honors Business Association represents the students as far as who we want for teachers and what we want for policies, and we ' ve con- tinued that this year, " President Bryan Finley, honors business accounting junior, said. " Before we represented the students before the Business Council and policy making com- mittees, but now we ' ve established an active organization where honors business students can interact. We ' re more of a social organization than last year. " The organization also invited guest speakers to provide members with information on post- graduate studies and employment. " We ' ve es- tablished monthly meetings at which guest speakers inform students of opportunities for post graduate studies in such areas as law, business administration and accounting, " Finley said. " We ' ve also brought people in from the working community. " At first, it was difficult getting members involved and interested in coming to monthly meetings because of their busy schedules. " HBA people are extremely active on campus, " Finley said. " The majority are involved in other organizations, and many of them are officers. It ' s hard to arrange meetings when people have such different schedules. " This was further complicated by the intensive nature of the Honors Business Program itself, but the HBA gave members an opportunity to socialize as well as the chance to form a support group. " The classes are taught at the same level as the MBA program, so that makes it really tough, " Finley said. " This year we provided honors business students with an organization where they can interact with each other and learn about opportunities.

The conference, which took place at both the University Teaching Center and the College of Business Administration atrium, allowed stu- dents to interact with 10 companies, Bill Oliver, liberal arts junior, said. " We had companies such as Arco, Alcoa, Mobil, Procter and Gamble, State Farm In- surance and HEB attending the conference. They were handing out information on intern- ships and jobs as well as conducting informal interviews, " Oliver said. Ten companies participated in the conference, which began at 8:30 a.m. with workshops which covered developing professional skills. Next on the agenda was a luncheon at which Herb Miller, an IBM employee visiting the University, delivered the keynote speech. " We are lucky in that we get an increase in companies that attend every year. We ask each company that attends to pay a $200 registration fee. The money we raise every year goes into the University Scholarship Fund so that we can establish a scholarship for business majors, " Oliver said. The NSBL raised $7,500 over the five years that the conference was held, covering three- fourths of the $10,000 they wanted to raise. The money was put into the scholarship fund. The scholarship, tenatively named the NSBL Endowed Scholarship, was to consist of a $1,000 award to an upper-division student in the College of Business Administration. The scholarship recipient was to be selected by a faculty board, Oliver said. by Robert Shofner A POPULAR CHOICE: National Student Business League members Hope Guidry, speech communication jun- ior, and DarreU Groves, engineering route to business junior, vote on next semester ' s officers at their final chapter meeing of the year on April 13.

" In its first year of existence, the mentor program has been overwhelmingly successful, " David Wilson, finance junior and HBSA career chairperson, said. The corporate mentor program allowed HB- SA members to interact with the people in their field of interest and to broaden their perspec- tives on the corporate world in general. HBSA members contacted various businesses in Austin and asked them to participate. HBSA then assigned interested members to companies that suited their selected field. The program began with an office visit at which time the HBSA member became aquainted with his or her mentor. After this first visit, students were encouraged to meet with their mentors on a monthly basis. Among the companies that participated in the program were M-Bank, Foley ' s, Peat, Marwick and Main, Price Waterhouse and the AT T finance department. " Being members of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce here in Austin allowed us to call upon our fellow members, although we were not limited to chamber members, for assistance in this project, " Wilson said. HBSA held member and mentor mixers to promote interaction between students and their mentors but most interaction occurred because the student took the initiative. " Being a part of the mentor program has exposed me to people in the business envi- ronment, " Martha Barboza, finance-real estate senior, said. The program allowed members to establish a one-on-one relationship with a professional. " My mentor and I established a long-term re- lationship and she gave me advice about school and my career, " Barboza said. by Laurie Hernandez FRONT ROW: Gilbert R. De La Rosa. Raul Abe!

Hispanic Business Student Association 351 Real Estate Society Land developers sponsor field trip Afield trip to Dallas proved to be the " best in several years " for the Real Estate Society, providing members with the oppor- tunity to meet executives from three of the top real estate companies in the country. The Society took 40 members to Dallas on Nov. 19 and 20 for a seminar sponsored jointly by Lomas and Nettleton, Trammell-Crow, and Lincoln Properties. The companies provided tours of their sites and spoke to members about marketing, investment finance and leasing on a national level. " With the hard times Texas has been having with real estate, we were fortunate to be the guests of three of the most successful developers in this part of the country, " President Rick Fogelman, real estate and urban land devel- opment senior, said. The group went on several other field trips throughout the year, but Fogelman rated the Dallas trip as the " best in several years. " Trammell-Crow took the group to their new Texas Commerce Bank Tower development where the architect and construction supervisor gave them a guided tour of the site from lobby to rooftop. Lomas and Nettleton allowed the members to review plans for their Vista Ridge project, a thousand-acre business and residential commu- nity. Finally, the organization looked at financial models of recent Lincoln Properties projects and were given background on what makes for real estate successes and failures. According to Fogelman, field trips such as these provide members with valuable real-life experiences. " From our standpoint, you can only learn so much from the textbook and classroom environment, " he said. " When you get away from that, you get away from the theory and are exposed to real lite aspects within the real estate industry and are able to put some of that textbook knowledge into use. by Barbara Neyens Chic; s : . i HOW MUCH?: While at Jaime ' s Mexican Village Feb. 4, Mary Triece, real estate junior, recruitsjulian Foster, graduate business student.

" It was more fun than I can even remember, " Executive Vice President Chris Ladoulis, honors business senior, said. In planning the trip the Finance Association used personal contacts such as University grad- uates and members ' friends to gain access in the businesses they toured. " We started with an idea of what city we wanted to go see. We chose Chicago because, after New York, it ' s the biggest financial center in the U.S. It has three of the exchanges. " Ladoulis said. " It ' s a chance for UTFA members to not only see the city but also to get an idea of the industry. They found out what the company was like and what it might be like to work for them. We also found out about their training programs and recruiting, " Ladoulis said. The group toured First Chicago Bank, the largest bank in the Midwest, and three stock exchanges, the Options Exchange, the Board of Trade, and the Mercantile Exchange. " We got to see behind the scenes how parts of portfolios are traded and how options and commodities are traded. It was a real learning experience, " Ladoulis said. The members also went sightseeing while on their four-day excursion. They stopped by Mother ' s, the club where parts of the movie About Last Night were filmed, and the Hard Rock Cafe of Chicago. Members ate in Greek Town, a popular place for Greek restaurants. " On Saturday we all went to Second City where the Belushi Brothers started and the Museum of Science and Industry. We also toured the Sears Corporation and went to the top of the Sears Tower, " Ladoulis said. " We try to go on several field trips a year to get an idea of what it will be like our first couple of years out of school, " Ladoulis said. by Christi McCord Peter Rene A CORNY GAME: Rebecca Noelke, business admin- istration senior, braces for a popcorn toss to an eager Steven Jones, business senior, at the UT Finance Association ' s happy hour at Uncle Nasty ' s on Feb. 2.

" ... if only I knew my interviewer personally ... " the student thought. Such opportunities were made possible through the University Accounting Asso- ciation ' s recruiting field trips as members be- came acquainted with recruiters from various accounting firms. " I went through three years of field trips, recruiting, and had lots of contact with different firms. I learned more and more each time and eventually, knew at least one recruiter from each firm, " President John Wessman, honors busi- ness-accounting senior, said. With a membership of approximately 300, UAA took 100 motivated students to Dallas on their bi-annual " recruiting " field trip on Oct. 15-16. During the two-day affair, members visited the " Big Eight " public accounting firms such as Arthur Andersen, Price Waterhouse and Peat Marwick, as well as several industry-related firms.

John McConnico firms operate in their own environment, as opposed to their always being in our UT en- vironment, " Executive Vice President Kristy Kaptchinskie, accounting senior, said. The participating firms welcomed the stu- dents with a presentation that included in- formation on company history, job opportu- nities with the firms, internships, recruiting procedures and an office tour. Several firms also treated UAA guests to lunch at their private company restaurants. The trip ' s events ended with a large reception at the Dallas Fairmont Hotel sponsored by all the participating firms. " It was a much more laid-back and personal atmosphere, a one-on- one type of recruiting, " Wessman said. Aside from offering an informative and pro- fessional experience, the field trip also helped some members to decide where to begin their careers. Wessman, who had been offered a po- sition at the Houston office of Coopers and Lybrand, felt that the trip was " the deciding factor " as to where to work upon graduation. UAA ' s recruiting field trips were beneficial in helping members establish contac ts and locate available opportunities well ahead of their grad- uation date. " It was important to get involved early and get to know as many people as pos- sible. These field trips were the best way to do this, " Don Knapp, accounting sophomore, said. by Patty Perez Allen Brook FRONT ROW: Janet l Cotton. Sally Ann Walker. Kriity Mae Kaptchinskie.

University Accounting Association 355 UT Management Association Speakers provide valuable network Guest speakers are often invited to a group ' s meetings to enhance members understanding of a topic of current interest. Such was certainly the case with the UT Man- agement Association. President Mark Bate, marketing senior, said the group " is a business organization which is truely dedicated to informing students about the world of management and the career oppor- tunities that are available. " " The UTMA also serves to help students establish and develop contacts with professional personnel and other executives, managers and labor officials. " Bate added that scheduling guest speakers aided in helping members reach that goal. One such speaker was David Harrell, a mem- ber of the training and development staff of the Motorla Corporation, who spoke Sept. 9 to the UTMA about the new age in the training and development of employees. " Speakers come in and talk about relocating companies and the human resource problem that accompanies that, " Bate said. " We ' ve also had a hospital administrator come in and talk to us about management problems that come up as well as how hospitals have changed as far as moving to fitness programs and such. " The bi-weekly meetings were not the only place members could hear guest speakers; the group also attended a luncheon for the Amer- ican Society for Personnel Adminis trators on Oct. 7. " We were made a student chapter for the ASPA, our parent organization, and the faculty advisor at UT, Joe Culver, spoke at the lun- cheon. It was a big honor, " Bate said. Bate said that joining the ASPA helped " provide a networking tool for management majors who want to interact with other pro- fessionals in their field as well as potential employers.

Held April 23 at the Four Seasons Hotel, the dance included dinner, a disc jockey and an awards ceremony. " The semi-formal was to honor the grad- uating seniors. We dedicated the evening to them and gave them a champagne glass with ' Phi Chi Theta ' engraved on it, " Historian Cindy Saifman, international business and mar- keting junior, said. The semi-formal was planned and promoted by the banquet committee within Phi Chi The- ta. " It ' s a more professional gathering than most dances but we all had a great time, " Saifman said. " The semi-formal was a memorable event, especially for the seniors who had to say their farewells. It was emotional, " Saifman said. During the dance, serious and gag awards were also presented. " We awarded such honors as Most Active Active, Most Active Pledge, Best Dressed, Most Professional and Mr. and Mrs. Phi Chi Theta, " Saifman said. " The spring semi-formal was the final cul- minating point when Phi Chi Theta got to- gether in one united group of friendship, " Ad- ministrative President Donna Zaruba, accounting senior, said. Phi Chi Theta also held several rush parties at the begining of each semester. One of the spring parties, held Jan. 28 at Mr. Gatti ' s Pizza, was " very crowded and a huge success, " Saifman said. " Our main goal was to make everyone feel welcome and it worked because we had people flowing over into the next room.

Advance symbolized " A Day Visiting Nearby Corporate Executives, " a project that brought members to various businesses in Austin for a one-on-one visit. Students majoring in accounting, finance, in- vestment or other areas of business could get a taste of the working world by spending an afternoon with a professional company, such as IBM or Dillard ' s. Members met with recruiting officers, took tours of the company, talked with people in different departments and saw first- hand how their future careers might look. According to Angela Gallagher, accounting senior, business recruiters were eager to ac- commodate the future professionals. " Alpha Kappa Psi attracts goal oriented and ambitious people, " Gallagher said. " Companies use the opportunity to meet with us not just to show us the business, but for possible future job placement. " " In-town Out-of-town " gave members an- other chance to see the business world in action. Groups of students visited accounting firms, banks and retail stores around Austin to take tours and learn more about available oppor- tunities the company offered. Fun and business were combined when the group had an " Out- of-town " in Dallas over OU Weekend. The group visited Hall Management, a real estate firm, and the Dallas Cowboy Management firm. " Business covers more than just finance and accounting, " Gallagher said. " We try to visit other types of businesses, like the Cowboys, to widen our perspectives. " Members also helped to instruct even younger future professionals in a program called Business Basics. Each semester during a four-week pe- riod, members spent time teaching fifth-graders in Austin elementary schools about fundamental business ideas. by Christina Dacey THE WAY IT IS: President William Cunningham speaks to members, pledges and rushees at an Alpha Kappa Psi rush function on Jan 26.

Alpha Kappa Psi 359 Phi Beta Chi 1 Group mixes business with pleasure Professionalism one of the main aspects of Phi Beta Chi. Over 30 members of this women ' s business fraternity learned about professionalism in the " real world " through a field trip to Houston on Nov. 11-13. The group visited various business-related firms in Houston such as Arthur Andersen Co. accounting firm, gaining insight into busi- ness practices in real-life situations. They also obtained valuable information on internships and business etiquette. Of course, there can ' t be business without some pleasure, and social events were an im- portant part of Phi Beta Chi. Masquerade Ball, the fall formal, held Nov. 21, was the largest social event of the semester. " The formal is a time when we can all come together and let our hair down. Everybody really gets to know everybody, " Historian Laura Pe- ters, management-marketing junior, said. Members showed how well they really did know each other at the award ceremony held on the night of the formal. They voted on each other and on their Big Brother organization, giving out awards such as " Miss Phototech, " A QUARTER FOR A CUP: Accounting sophomore Ricky Phillips, a Phi Beta Chi big brother, waits patiently for his beverage to be served at a Phi Beta Chi Mixer Nov. 13.

" Phi Beta Chi members gave their president, Lynne Sweeney, finance-real estate senior, the honor of obtaining the " Miss MRS degree " because of her engagement. " We like to reward the girls and our big brothers for their efforts, achievements and out- standing personalities, " she said. Peters said that membership in Phi Beta Chi was not restricted to business majors. " The b] part of Phi Beta Chi is that we look for any who wants to learn about what ' s going on in II business world, regardless of their major | feel everyone needs to know about business matter what their career may be.

With a turnout of 400 people and $ 1 500 worth of proceeds, Delta Sigma Pi, a business fraternity, could have had a very successful event and it did. After collecting $1500 in contributions from their 2nd Annual Campus-Wide Round-Up Party, Delta Sigma Pi donated it all to the Arthritis Foundation. With approximately 400 people in attendance, the party, which was held on April 8, turned out to be the most successful fund-raising event of the year. " Everyone had a great time and, in the process, helped out a worthy cause, " President Russell Wager, marketing senior, said. Also helping out with the event was the " Little Sister " organization, which consisted of 15 women. " They contributed substantially to our functions, " Wager said. To help members tune in to what was taking place in the business community, Delta Sigma Pi invited a variety of professionals to speak at their chapter meetings. On Oct. 12, Glen West, president of the Austin Chamber of Commerce, gave his viewpoint on the movement of the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport and its im- pacts upon the surrounding community.

" According to most of the schools taking part in our fair, we have the largest law school fair in the nation, " President Audrey Teagarden, gov- ernment junior, said. Thirty schools came from all over the country to take part in the fair, among them Yale, the University of Chicago, Pepperdine, American University, the University of Nebraska, Okla- homa State and Vanderbilt. " Yale is rated second out of all of the law schools in the country, and the University of Chicago is right behind them. Harvard, who is number one, was going to come but they had a scheduling conflict, " Teagarden said. Texas schools were not excluded from taking part in the fair. Baylor, Texas Tech, Southern Methodist University, the University of Hous- ton and St. Mary ' s University also took part in the fair. " Texas Tech and Baylor called to make sure they were scheduled for our fair because so many students take ' part, " Teagarden said. The UT Law Fair was the largest in the nation for a number of reasons, Teagarden said. " There is a real trend to recruit students from the state of Texas right now. A good example of this is a scholarship Vanderbilt offers to students from Texas called the Alamo Scholarship. Its purpose is to get students from Texas to go to Vanderbilt law school, " Teagarden said. " Also, Texas students tend to go to UT law school. UT only picks the very best students in Texas and the other schools want to get in here and try to recruit the very best students away from The University.

University Pre-Law Association 365 I Student Landman Association I Preparation essential for landmen In a year-long effort to prepare members for their careers in the oil industry, the Student Landman Association invited in- dustry representatives such as the Mobil Cor- poration to their monthly meetings. The association, headed by Dr. Keith Carter, Fellow in Petroleum Land Management, en- couraged professionalism and the highest ethical standards in land practices while allowing pe- troleum land management majors to meet and confer with alumni and industry representatives. These industry professionals discussed many aspects of the industry with the students, from the history of the oil industry in Texas to independent work as a broker to bidding for government leases for a major oil company. Because many of the industry representatives were University of Texas graduates, they were able to give students an opportunity to discuss the many aspects of petroleum land manage- ment on an informal, personal level as well as give them insight into what being a landman actually involved. " Inviting industry representatives to our monthly meetings allows us to gain insight into our careers from professionals and know what to expect when we enter our field, " Secretary Kathy Valek, petroleum land management se- WHAT A DAY: Petroleum land management seniors Claire Hardy and Lynda Radrord socialize with their friends across the table at an after-meeting gathering at Stholz Garten on Nov. 19.

" We are the only business organization which allows exposure to the petroleum in- dustry, " President Ronnye Leech, petroleum land management senior, said. In addition to helping members pursue their career goals, the Student Landman Association also hosted several social activities. The largest of these activities was their annual barbeque. Oth- er activities included bi-annual golf tournaments which allowed the association members an op- portunity to take a break from their studies. At the year ' s end, the Student Landman Association celebrated their accomplishments with an end-of-the-semester party. This allowed the members and their dates the opportunity to relax and enjoy one another ' s company. 366 Student Landman Association Praetorian Guard Competition awards timed-precision Praetorian Guard gave their members the opportunity to develop military lead- ership skills through their annual collegiate drill meet held March 5 at Clark Field and Memorial Stadium. The meet involves schools from across Texas and from across the country, including Texas A M Fish Drill Team, Alcorn State Army ROTC and Prairie View A M Navy ROTC. The competition was broken up into three phases: inspection, basic drill and precision drill. The teams competed for first prize and runner- up positions at each phase. The judges for the event were experienced drill instructors from Camp Mabry, a National Guard base in Austin. Along with winners at each phase the judges selected one overall win- ner. " This year the competition between UT and A M was very intense because last year we lost by four points to the Aggies, " President Paul Acker, liberal arts senior, said. Texas A M Fish Drill Team came out on top again this year but not without a fight from the Texas NROTC. In all three phases the com- petition " was down to the wire, " Acker said. A M took first in the basic and precision drill phases but in the inspection phase Texas NROTC was victorious. This phase was the most heated; Texas NROTC and Texas A M were tied and the winner was selected by having the commanders come foward and answer ques- tions about standard regulations. The A M commander incorrectly answered the question in the second round and Texas NROTC was victorious. Texas A M won the overall competition but Texas was not far behind. " Once again we will be looking foward to next year ' s competition since this year was a repeat of last year ' s event, " Acker said. by Laurie Hernandez FRONT ROW: Lutimer James McKenna, Dv,d Paul Dulevirj.

Janice Jacobs Jacobs Praetorian Guard 367 Flights compete in drill sequence Entering any new organization can be in- timidating for new students trying to find a niche at the University. Air Force ROTC promoted unity and friendship among new members through competitions and teamwork. Underclassman were divided into flights of 15 to 20 cadets which were each led by an upperclassman. The flights engaged in many intracompetitive activities that helped to unify the cadets. One of the major events in which the flights participated was a drill competition held Nov. 20 in Memorial Stadium. Each flight performed a 54-drill command sequence and was judged on precision, execution and completion within the time limit. The 54-drill commmand sequence was a se- ries of marching commands repeated by flights every semester. Cadets learned the four-minute drill during the semester and worked on it to increase their competency. The group judged best at the drill competition was recognized as the best flight. " Marching isn ' t the only important thing being judged during drill competition. " Linda Wolf, data processing-marketing senior, said. " Flights are also judged by their unity and the amount of flight spirit they show. " The competition brought together upper and underclassmen, as many upperclassmen came to the stadium to watch. The cadets spent a lot of time mastering the command sequence drill during the semester, practicing every Tuesday. Cadets spent their freshman and sophomore years working toward the drill competition while taking general mil- itary courses. The first two years were important for train- ing cadets and helping them decide if they desired a career with the Air Force, for in the third year they had to sign a contract if they wished to continue with the ROTC program. by Christina Dacey CLOSE SCRUTINY: Johnathan Scilken, a biology soph- omore and David Pastore, a prebusiness sophomore, review the cadets during drill competition Nov. 20.

Serving Air Force personnel is only a small part of being in Angel Flight, " President Tonia Carlisle, history senior, said. On Oct. 29 Angel Flight sponsored a tri- service blood drive at the rifle range, obtaining donations from Air Force, Army and Navy ROTC members. Each person that took part donated one pint of blood. " Those who were able to give blood did. Forty-eight units of blood were donated, which is good because not many people knew about our drive, " Carlisle said. " It ' s after the Alpha Phi Omega blood drive so we lose some people because of that. " Carlisle added that the members of Angel Flight gave blood and worked in hour-long shifts to talk to the people giving blood and keep them comfortable. Angel Flight Public Relations Officer Christi Keller, an organizational communications se- nior, said there was " a real congenial attitude because people were only giving blood if they wanted to. We also gave a local anesthetic so when the needle was placed in someone ' s arm they wouldn ' t feel it. We also gave out t-shirts that said ' Deep In the Heart of Texas ' to everyone who gave blood. " A competition was held between the groups to see who could bring the most people in. Carlisle said the Army group won the contest and were treated to refreshments, made by Angel Flight, after one of their drill practices. Other activities Angel Flight took part in were the Special Olympics Muscular Dystrophy Telethon and the Young Astronaut Program. The Young Astronaut Program was the group ' s national project that emphasized the sciences and math to fourth through sixth grade children. " It ' s a busy job but it is a lot of fun. We are a tight-knit group and I think it shows in the amount of projects we do each year and the care we put into those projects, " Carlisle said. by Robert Shofner EYEING THE NEEDLE: Rosie Ortiz of the Central Texas Regional Blood Center withdraws blood from the arm of military science sophomore Thomas Chandler Oct. 29.

Navy ROTC, a force of highly motivated men and women, was an especially competitive program with one important purpose in mind: to educate and train qualified young men and women for active service as commissioned of- ficers in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. " ROTC is very demanding because all mem- bers must maintain certain grade standards, work toward and obtain a college degree, and fulfill their Navy ROTC obligations and re- quirements, " Battalion Commander Audrey Means, government senior, said. All ROTC members were required to take demanding naval science courses along with their regular academic classes at the university. These included weaponry, naval history, nav- igation and ship system engineering. BATTALION: Joseph McKnighr Thompson. John Randolph Craig, Audrey Denise Means, Sergio Posadas. Wallace George Lovely.

Many of the ROTC members were quickly promoted to leadership positions within the student-run unit although the group did have several advisors. " There are as many different reasons for joining Navy ROTC as there are Navy ROTC members. They come for scholarships, because they grew up in a military environment or for the advantages of training as an officer, " Means said. Although many civilians see military life as too stringent, ROTC members seemed to enjoy their rigorous training schedule. We are specially trained to be leaders and to make important, high-level decisions while at the same time maintaining our composure. If we learn to keep a high level of pressure we can do everything well, " Means said. by Christi McCord PROUD OF THE COLORS: Navy ROTC members Grant Lawton, William Avery and Todd Hinkel perform their daily duty of taking down the flag.

" Every semester, early October in the fall and late February in the spring, after we get our new pledges, the sophomore through senior guys adopt a pledge and the sophomore through senior Anchorettes adopt a freshman in Naval ROTC, " President Danelle Draehn said. Draehn added that neither pledge nor fresh- man knew who their big brother or big sister would be, nor did the older members know who their freshman were. " We find out at the picnic who belongs to whom, " she said. At the picnics " everybody plays games in order to find out who everybody belongs to. Everyone brings a present to give to their friend and we take pictures also, " Draehn said. The big brother big sister system provided a r Anchorettes basis for close friendships. Anchorettes or ROTC members and their little brothers or sisters often went out to movies or dinner to- gether and they kept each other informed as to parties taking place around town. " It ' s also nice to have someone to talk to in case you need any help with problems con- cerning UT. The older people who have been here can help the cadets and pledges who really don ' t know their way around, " Draehn said. Friendships that were formed at the get- together often continued even after the members graduated. " We send letters to the cadets that have graduated and they write back. It gets lonely for the guys that are serving so we try to keep in touch by sending them letters and food. That ' s the reason we are here to provide friendship for the cadets, " Draehn said. by Robert Shofner John Foxworth FRONT ROW.

This decline continued into the 80s and seemed to have the greatest affect on minority groups. The Black Health Professions Or- ganization helped treat this problem by con- ducting a Health Fair at Holy Cross Hospital of Austin on Saturday, Nov. 14. BHPO presented the fair for children be- tween six and 1 1 years of age who had shown an interest in the health professions. The coordinator of the Health Fair was Dr. Sandra Bell, whose AISD Project Teach and Reach assisted mainly minority children from low-income families, children with whom Black Health Professions was most interested. The Health Fair featured a number of ' stations ' where the children listened to talks from professionals such as family practitioners, dentists, lab technicians and pharmacists. Res- piratory equipment, CPR methods and the skel- etal system were a few of the demonstrations provided to stimulate the children ' s interest in health careers. In addition, the event offered fairgoers a screening for various blood diseases. According to BHPO President Edith Whar- ton, biology-pre-med senior, the Health Fair was aimed at low-income children from Project Teach and Reach " to encourage them to think of future career plans and consider medicine as an option. " Members of BHPO were on hand at the fair to guide the children through the learning sta- tions and help stir a little enthusiasm in the crowd. " Not only did the fair provide valuable ex- perience for us in working with children, but we also benefited from contact with the various health careers as we assisted the practitioners and technicians in the demonstrations, " Whar- ton said. BHPO participated in quite a few other activities to guide medical students through the many steps toward their careers. The group organized trips to preprofessional and profes- sional schools, as well as the Southwestern Pre- Med Conference in Dallas on Feb. 27, which was conducted for minorities. " Many of our members come into the or- ganization with their major in mind, " Wharton said. " We try to keep them on gear and help them decide if they ' re making the right career choice.

Med- L ical College Admissions Test -- was a ource of worry for students who desired to get IKO medical school. Delta Omicron Chi, a ire-medical pre-dental fraternity, tried to al- :viate that worry by helping members prepare or the test. The group sponsored several speakers to lec- ure at their meetings on various aspects of lifferent health professions and offer advice and ips to doing well on the M.C.A.T. Dr. Leonard Lawrence, the associate dean of students from the University Health Science Center in San Antonio, gave counsel on nec- essary preparation for the exam on Jan. 27. Other speakers included doctors who specialized in emergency room treatment, oral surgery and orthodontia. " Students often have a great amount of dif- ficulty with the test that they didn ' t expect due to lack of preparation, " Micheal Parisi, ed- ucation junior said. " They don ' t realize how difficult it will be. " The fraternity also helped the members by preparing a mock M.C.A.T. They worked in conjunction with the Kaplan Testing center, which administered and proctored the test. All health professional students were invited to take the test. Afterwards, Kaplan graded the tests and showed the students where their weaknesses lay. The test took four hours, only half of the eight hours the actual test required. Alpha Epsilon Delta, another pre-med pre-dent fraternity, also helped the fraternity to organize the test. " We try to give members a little knowledge about all the areas they need to know to be successful on the exam, " Parisi said. " There are six different areas to be familiar with. " The group was open to all students interested in a field in health professions, not just aspiring doctors and dentists. " Ail types of people come to learn from the speakers we have. Delta Omicron Chi gives people a chance to get together and compare similar interests, as well as meet their future competition, " Parisi said. by Christina Dacey FRONT ROW: Maria Lynn Durr.

Summer school credit, professional experience and preparation for future careers in a health profession were just a few of the benefits Har- vard and other major medical and dental schools had to offer members of the National Chicano Health Organization. NCHO Co-president Carlos Trejo was one of five students accepted to the Harvard program from the state of Texas. " I felt very confident after being selected as a participant because it showed how I stood na- tionally among other college students, " Trejo, a biology senior, said. NCHO members applied to various medical and dental school programs such as Cornell and the University of California at Los Angeles,, as well as to Baylor, Texas A M and the Uni- versity of Texas Health Science Centers of Hous- ton and San Antonio. Applicants competed with other students in Texas and across the country for a chance to participate in the prestigious eight-week summer programs. On Nov. 4, representatives from Baylor Col- lege of Medicine, Texas A M School of Med- icine, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine of Fort Worth and UT Heath Science Centers of San Antonio and Houston spoke to NCHO members about their respective training pro- grams. One aspect they focused on was the extreme need for Hispanic physicians and how their medical programs aimed to find potential qualified applicants. " Encouraging us to apply, they gave us an overall view of what medicine was all about and which aspect of medicine their respective pro- grams emphasized, " Julie Sanchez, biology-pre- med junior, said. Sanchez was also a summer program participant and attended the Univer- sity of Texas Medical School at Galveston. Each university sponsored specific programs such as MCAT preps, clinical observations or academic preparations. NCHO ' s objective was to get its members into the schools. Among their 40 active mem- bers, NCHO had a 95 percent acceptance rate into medical, dental, pharmacy, physical ther- apy and nursing schools over the previous two years.

Students plan commemorative statue More than 10 years after the end of Amer- ican involvement in Vietnam, and some 30 years after Korea, the American Society of Civil Engineers wished to express the feelings evoked by those wars: they helped to build a monument to those who fought overseas during these conflicts. The Texas House of Representatives chose a site near the State Capitol for a monument to those who fought in Vietnam and Korea. The site was in the middle of a walkway that had settled in recent years, causing the pavement to warp and crack. A utilities tunnel ran underneath the area, and these ominous factors posed possible threats to the stability of the monument. The mon- ument committee needed hard-working vol- unteers to take soil samples and design a foun- dation that would minimize these hazards, so they contacted President William Cunningham. With the help of Dr. Lymon Reese, professor of geotechnical engineering, ASCE took on the project. " We ' re designing a very conservative, solid foundation that won ' t settle one bit, " Treasurer Jonathan Buckingham, civil engineering senior, said. Jeff Hole FRONT ROW: Monica Suzanne Blansen, Kirk Allan Kisinger, Claudia Elena Dial SECOND ROW: Becky Lynn Petenon, Ouiiy Ann Schlutet. BACK ROW: Fred Johnson Burreu. Jonathan C. Buckingham, David Wayne Fnnzen. Members researched records of the area and took soil samples to ensure that the foundation design would be solid. After they presented their findings to the committee, the committee estimated the cost and hired contractors to build the foundation. The experience the Society gained from the pro ject was invaluable, Buckingham said. Al- though the veterans ' monument would not be dedicated until May 1989, the members were able to learn the entire engineering process from stan to finish. " It ' s given me the engineering experience you don ' t get from school, " Buckingham said. " Coming back from a meeting my professor told me, ' What you just experienced is some- thing 50 percent of your career will consist of dealing with the public and presenting your ideas. ' This whole experience is just invaluable. " The Society also considered important the opportunity to do something for the general public. " This is not for the benefit of ASCE and its members, " Buckingham said. " It ' s for the community. It ' s for the veterans.

Every Saturday at the Engineering Teaching Center, members met in the mechanical en- gineering shop to work on rebuilding parts for the automobile. I ' ve spent lots of nights in the basement at the shop, sleeping only a few hours, then getting back to work on the car, " Marc Jacubec, me- chanical engineering senior, said. The goal of all the hard work was the For- mula S.A. event, an annual intercollegiate com- petition held May 1 9-2 1 at the Lawrence In- stitute of Technology in Detroit. The event offered several different areas of competition, including judgment on design and cost reports, 100-yard sprints, skid pads and a four-hour endurance test. " It ' s very difficult for any of the cars to pass through all the events, " Jacubec said. " There are many limits on engine size, and all the drivers are trying to get the most they can out of their tar ' s performance. " 9 pvt t : t i Ml - ' by Christina Dacey READY TO RUN: Matt Crankor.

" The outreach programs gave new students in idea of what to expect at UT, as well as giving us a chance to see who the upcoming academic stars might be, " David Jones, chem- ical engineering senior, said. One of the most popular programs was the World of Engineering sponsored by the fra- ternity and the College of Engineering in the fall semester. Over 900 high school students from all over Texas were invited to spend a day at the University learning how the College of En- gineering operated. They had a chance to talk with engineering students and faculty members, take tours of the labs and facilities, and learn about the cur- riculum and workload. In addition, Pi Sigma Pi performed skits on finanical aid, housing and university life to help lessen the students ' con- fusion about these areas. " I went to World of Engineering five years ago, and it caught me as a UT student. The day is a very successful way to get new students here, " Jones said. During the spring semester the fraternity held a career fair. Over 40 companies were rep- resented, including Mobil Oil, IBM, Frito-Lay, Shell Oil, AT T company and GTE. Rep- resentatives gave students information on the benefits and expectations of their firms and helped them to decide where the best career for them might be located, Jones said. " The fair gives members a chance to learn new aspects about their careers and professions, " Jones said. " Many students get jobs or work- study programs after talking with the company representatives. The fair is a more relaxed and informal way to interact with a company.

Feb. 20 marked one of Mobil ' s significant contributions to the Society of Petroleum En- gineers a sponsored field-trip to the West Ranch Oil Field. Located along the Gulf Coast in Davenport, Texas, West Ranch was an oil field operated by the Mobil Corporation. Twenty-five members, along with 10 Mobil Petroleum engineers, participated in the day- long event which consisted of speakers and field tours. Various Mobil engineers spoke on oil- related topics such as the West Ranch Oil Field ' s history, technology, production and gas plants. Dave Fedder, Mobil production engineer su- pervisor, spoke on the technological aspects of the field. " He explained the development of West Ranch ' s current equipment line and what the underground petroleum reservoir was like, " President Bill Hardham, petroleum engineering graduate student, said. Because Mobil was eager to help the Society of Petroleum Engineers chapter at the Uni- versity, they volunteered to sponsor the trip. The all-expense paid event included transpor- tation and a picnic lunch, as well as favors from Mobil and West Ranch. Breaking up into smaller groups, Society of Petroleum Engineer members toured the oil fields. They were able to see drilling rigs, gas plants and satellites in operation.

Mobil pkyed a large part in the Society of Petroleum Engineers ' success in 1988. Aside from the West Ranch field-trip, Mobil held annual " chicken seminars, " in which they bought students lunch and held recruiting pres- entations to benefit both the University or- ganization and the elite corporation. by Patty Perez PKnRene 380 Society of Petroleum Engineer Society of Women Engineers Panel reviews womens ' career needs Students in The Society of Women En- gineers took part in a discussion of the status of women in the engineering profession at their Nov. 16 meeting. " Some of the subjects we discussed were how women fit into engineering with men; life after graduation; family life, especially family life when your husband is also an engineer; and their experiences in those situations, " Suzanne DelRosario, petroleum engineering senior, said. DeLRosario said that a panel made up of members of the Society of Professional En- gineers talked on subjects ranging from how to deal with men in the workplace to how to raise a family and work at a demanding job as well. Mary Bakatsa, chemical engineeering junior, said everything the panel discussed was in- teresting because it helped members learn how to deal with any situation, good or bad, that could arise on the job or at home. " They told us that men are fair to women overall on the job and they also told us the down side to the job, such as divorces due to their work, " Bakatsa said. Bakatsa said she was impressed with the women who took part in the discussion and added that they were positive role models. " I could relate to th em and their experiences and learn from them. They told us about their experiences in college and what we should try to do while we are in college, " she said. Bakatsa said the panel gave examples such as getting involved in outside activities so that members would become well-rounded, and thinking about graduate school before they be- came locked into a work or family situation. " They gave us all kinds of examples as to what activities to get involved in. They rec- ommended learning a foreign language or get- ting involved in volunteer work and were quick to tell us to do whatever we liked to do now because we may not have time later, " Bakatsa said. by Barbara Neyens John Foxworth FRONT ROW: Ruth Elizabeth Harris, Linda Ann Rickard.

Gearing Home Economics Section Baked treats provide scholarships Throughout the school year the Sweet Shop, run by the Mary E. Gearing Home Economics Society, not only provided delicious treats for customers but also provided the funds for MEG ' s scholarship fund. The Sweet Shop, operated from a Mary E. Gearing Hall classroom, stocked such goodies as cookies, brownies and cakes which were ail made by MEG members. " Most all of our profits came from the baked goods which members and sponsors provided but we purchased other refreshments such as coffee and tea, " Regina Walton, child devel- opment senior, said. " It was easy to get members to bake because they understood that it was all for their benefit, " Melissa Smith, child development sophomore, said. The proceeds from the Sweet Shop went into the scholarship fund and the money was award- ed according to members ' financial need, ac- ademic achievement and amount of partici- pation in the club. " We awarded 22 scholarships this year. Each scholarship ranged from $100 to $500, " Wal- ton said. " The scholarship provided an incentive for members to be active in MEG, " Smith said. To promote the Sweet Shop MEG held a bake sale to let people know of its existence. The bake sale was held during the first week of the spring semester in Mary E. Gearing Hall. In addition to the bake sale, MEG members advertised the Sweet Shop through word-of- mouth and posters in MEG Hall. " The Sweet Shop did really well despite the fact that MEG used no major form of ad- vertising, " Smith said. " Not many people knew that the Sweet Shop was there, but those that did such as interior design majors who worked all night on projects or faculty and staff in the nearby buildings really appreciated having the Sweet Shop, " Walton said. by Laurie Hernandez Janice Jacob FRONT ROW Ruby Ru-yih Su.

Gearing Home Economics Society Sigma Alpha Iota hips Musicians work behind the scenes he members of Sigma Alpha Iota, an international women ' s music fraternity, worked hard to bring benefits to the Music Building and music students. " We ' re not a highly visable group, but we ' re very active behind the scenes, " Amy Mansfield, music education senior, said. The fraternity provided numerous piano, vo- cal, instrumental and theory composition schol- arships for University of Texas music students. In June, members sold patches at the state solo and ensemble competition, held every year for Texas high school students. The group had traditionally raised funds at this event to finance the scholarships. A new tradition was started in December when the group donated a huge Christmas tree to the main lobby of the Music Building. Mem- bers held a decorating party and invited stu- dents to help make seasonal and creative or- naments out of simple art supplies for the tree. Other groups also donated decorations. " It was a big success, " Mansfield said. " We hope to continue this project in future years. " The group also had many activities to em- phasize their professional musicianship aspects. Each semester, they invited students to a free, informal recital at the Music Building audi- torium. Members ' talents ranged from playing the piano, to trombone, to singing, so all types of music were represented. During meetings, members also had an op- portunity to improve their musical skills by performing in musicals, " mini-recitals " in which members performed either in a solo or an ensemble. Participation in at least two musicals per semester was required. This allowed mem- bers to help each other on style and technique, as well as providing additional experience. " This group brings together women of dif- ferent ideas, lifestyles and backgrounds and unites them by their common love for music, " Mansfeild said.

Sigma Alpha Iota 383 f Texas Student Education Association Future teachers learn at conference! Careers in education are built solely on dedication a fact that says something special for education majors. The Texas Stu- dent Education Association provided these students with a number of experiences to ease them into their profession. At the National Education Association Stu- dent Program Leadership Conference held Feb. 26-28 in Dallas, TSEA members were intro- duced to both the Texas State Teachers As- sociation and the National Education Associ- ation as potential resources. The conference attended to matters of great importance such as how to organize the group and recruit new members. Also confronted were issues of political con- cern to the teaching profession of which House Bill 94 was most important. TSEA President Paula DeShazo, early childhood and kinder- garten education junior, said, " The bill is going to lower the effectiveness of teachers. " She said that despite the setbacks Texas faced because of the bill, Texas education was rel- atively innovative. " Whenever Texas adopts an education policy, other states are usually right behind us. We are a pioneer in a lot of fields. " TSEA members automatically became mem- bers of the Texas State Teachers Association, from which they received many benefits enjoyed by full-fledged teachers. These included five professional education journals, an excellent placement service and $1000 liability insurance in case of accidents in the classroom. TSEA members also attended many in mative workshops that responded to the n of future teachers. The workshops covered tc such as child abuse, teacher burnout and terfacing the special child into the regular c room. DeShazo said that some of this informa was essential. For instance, students learned teachers are required to report child abust law. She said, " A teacher needs to know behavioral clues to look for and how to deal ' them " when abuse is apparent. by Larry Rowe Michael Stravaio FRONT ROW Deborah Jean Summers, Pamela Sue Greenwood, Rosalinda Marie Estrada, Laurence Calvin Jacluon.

The show, held Oct. 14 at the Four ___________ __n Festive and Christmasy " were the words that Ana Luisa Valdez, design senior and president of the UT Fashion Group used to describe the fashion show the group put to- gether in the Texas Union Ball Room on Nov. 20. With a wall of snow as a backdrop, winter and holiday fashions from casual to the finest in party dresses, tuxedos and furs came down a runway skirted with snow. The pieces came from various stores in Austin such as Koslow ' s, Benetton, Yarings, After Hours, and The Cadeau-Bon Chic. The show also included orig- inal high-fashion student designs from the De- partment of Fashion Design. The disc jockey, Phil Owens of the Cave Club, played a mix of music from contemporary upbeat to slow and jazzy while the emcee, Mary Henneburg, a communication senior, com- mentated. Behind the scenes, Avant Hair sculptured hair and the makeup artist, Judy Farmer of Mary Kay Cosmetics, made models " glamorous and beautiful, " Valdez said. The Texas Wranglers and other students modelled in the show. The whole purpose of the event, aside from showcasing new fashions, was to raise money for the group ' s scholarship fund. These scholarships were awarded on the basis of scholastic ability and finacial need of members. The Fashion Group co-sponsored another fashion show with the Textile and Clothing Division of the Department of Home Eco- nomics. The show, held Oct. 14 at the Four Seasons Hotel, displayed a collection of student designs. On Feb. 18 in the Texas Union Ball Room, a third show, organized by the Fashion Group and co-sponsored with the Student Issues Com- mittee, also showed student designs.

The program was called Rent-a-design- student. Through the rent-a-design-student program, interior design firms such as CA Cor- porate Furnishings and The Bommarito Group, both out of Austin, hired interior design stu- dents involved on ASID for several days at minimum wage. The wages earned during these few days benifited all ASID members. The main function of the program was to allow members to interact with professionals so that they could supplement their education with practical experience.

" I was very intrigued during my short visit at Riley Brown Inc., because I sat in on a client meeting with Patty Brown and I observed how she dealt with the client in a professional man- ner, " Stacey Thompson, interior design junior, said. The proceeds of the program were used to pay for speakers, door prizes, and food for the meetings. ASID attempted to attract more members to their meetings and through the the Rent-a- design-student program, their attempt was suc- cessful. With the program ' s proceeds, AISD made its meetings more worthwhile to mem- bers. " The program allowed ASID members to meet the members ' needs both as individuals and as a group, " Mosely said. Some of the design students who took part in the program also gained permanent employ- ment with firms that participated.

Yuk " became a significant symbol tc many school children as they learned to associate him with dangerous poisons. Kappa Epsilon ' s annual Poison Prevention Programs taught elementary students from kindergarten to second grade to stay away from " yukky " and deadly poisons. March symbolized " Poison Prevention " month and, for over 10 years, Kappa Epsilon had participated in the event. The womens ' professional pharmacy fraternity visited Austin Independent School District elementary schools and hosted up to two programs with 70 stu- dents per program during each day of March. The core of the program was an animated slide show in which a child accidently overdosed on poison. " We tried to make the kids think that they were smarter than the film; we made them feel important and responsible enough to prevent any accidents from happening, " President Don- na Rogers, pharmacy senior, said. Aside from the slide show, Kappa Epsilon members held question-and-answer sessions with the children, taught them how to " poison- proof their houses, and passed out the popular " Mr. Yuk " stickers to place on poisonous products. " The children were very receptive and asked lots of questions, " Rogers said. Elementary schools such as Cunningham, Walnut Creek, Andrews, Widen and Mathews also made Kappa Epsilon ' s Poison Prevention Program an annual event for their students. " We requested information on Kappa Ep- silon ' s program after we read about it in the AISD memo; they suggested we take full ad- vantage of it, " Deann Glover, Andrews El- ementary School teacher, said. " The health and safety factors benefitted the children as they grew, and they retained the knowledge and awareness of the program, " Glover said. Since 1988 marked the 45th anniversary of the University chapter, Kappa Epsilon worked extra hard in making the year ' s program suc- cessful to benefit both the elementary schools as well as Kappa Epsilon members. " We enjoyed interacting with the younger children because it prevented us from being college students all the time, " Rogers said.

Members constructed a pamphlet called ' Street Wise " to give information and alleviate the nationwide drug problem, as well as achieve recognition for their UT chapter. " The pamphlet was originally put together for local pharmacists and included all illicit drugs and their trade names, " Wes Vanderhoofven, pharmacy senior, said. " We knew it would be especially helpful with direct student input. " The pamphlet contained a series of student- written articles which gave the street names, medical terms, symptoms, hazards and effects of the more common drugs. " Many parents were lost when it came to the current drug scene. Now, since ' Street Wise ' has been distributed, the parent could call his local pharmacist, tell him the street name of the drug they heard about, and find out the potential danger his son or daughter may be in, " Dawn Naberhaus, pharmacy senior, said. In hopes of gaining chapter recognition and achievement awards, LPhA presented " Street Wise " at the National Convention on spring of 1988 in Atlanta, Ga. At the convention, the American Pharma- ceutical Association, the parent organization of the University chapter, said they were " pleased " with the informative " Street Wise. " They de- cided to distribute 1,500 pamphlets to phar- macists nationwide. After being interviewed by the Journal for Pharmacy Students, a national publication, Naberhaus said, " the publicity of ' Street Wise ' surprised us; it went way past out expectations.

" Never-the-less, for completing service proj- ects and community work such as blood pres- sure screenings and fundraisers for charities, Phi Delta Chi received an achievement award, the Prescott Scholarship Cup, a third place Brother- ship Award and the Emery W. Thurston Grand President ' s Award. The achievement award recognized efficiency in reporting chapter activities to the national office of Phi Delta Chi. Instead of filling out annual or quarterly reports, the fraternity was asked to make several reports each month to keep the national office informed about local activities and events. Out of the 47 chapters throughout the country, the UT chapter was one of only eight chapters to merit an award for its efficiency in complying with this policy.

The organization also took second place in the competition for the Emory W. Thurston Grand President ' s Award, missing first place by only one point. The award went to chapters who promoted the science of pharmacy and the ideals of Phi Delta Chi. To qualify, the chapter needed an efficiency rating of 90 percent or better. Other criteria included service projects, chapter publications and scholarships. In addition to winning the awards, the fra- ternity also became more active. " We ' re stream- lined now, " Wang said. " We ' ve got everything organized. We have excellent leadership and have all the right people in the right jobs. Everyone has a talent, everyone has good points and we try to pick those out.

Peter Rene 390 Phi Delta Chi Kappa Psi Elderly help prepare pharmacists Pharmacy majors in Kappa Psi pharma- ceutical fraternity made friends with se- nior citizens and prepared themselves for service in the public sector by spending time with the Austin Groups for the Elderly. President John Zaiger, pharmacy senior, said that helping the elderly was the pharmacy stu- dents ' way of getting ready for the service role they would assume when they graduated as well as becoming friends with the elderly. The students helped the nursing home res- idents play bingo every Thursday from one to 2 p.m. Kappa Psi sent five people at a time to help run the bingo games and to interact with the people at the nursing home. Zaiger said that sending a greater number of people at one time was not necessary since bingo was played every week, giving everyone in the group ample time to participate in the project. Zaiger said one or two of the Kappa Psi members ran the games for those wanting to play while other members talked with senior citizens not interested in playing bingo. " We ' ll sit around and talk to them, because they like to sit around and talk. I think they enjoy the time we spend, " Zaiger said. " We set this up as a service project. It ' s really something we wanted to do for the community. We are dealing with people and it gives the people in our group experience in working with other people, especially the elderly, " Zaiger said. Zaiger credited Pepe Gutierrez Rocca, phar- macy senior, the special projects committee chairman, in initiating the idea for the project. by Robert Shofner B-l-N-G-O: Kappa Psi members assist the Austin Groups for the Elderly at a weekly bingo game in order to become more service-minded.

This old-fashioned structure was the New York Stock Exchange Trading Post Num- ber Five, which held a position on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange from 1929 until 1981. Thousands of stocks were exchanged at this post on Wall Street, including such stocks as Hupp Motor Car Corp., Eureka Vacuum Clean- er Corp., Bon Ami Co., Pure Oil Co., and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures. " I like to see the post when I come through the GSB, " Lisa Moyers, marketing sophomore, said. " I think that Wall Street activities and the stock market are a vital part of the business world, and the trading post represents all those things it ' s a good symbol for the business world. " The University obtained the valuable tradii post through co-operation with the Stock change Post Preservation Program.

" The stock exchange represents American ingenuity and innovation in the financial world.

Other trading post owners included such prestigious schools as Harvard University, Uni- versity of Chicago and American University. " I saw the trading post during a tour of the campus when I first came to the University, " Marion Keith, education-French sophmore said.

TV QSERTOOK Beyond the stereotypical mold . . . If a student needed information about the Greek social scene, he could plant himself on the West Mall and read the many t-shirts advertising upcoming events. T-shirts publicized many Greek parties, and as a result, students did not realize the extent of Greek involvement in other activities. " We are fighting a stereotyped image, " Kelley Kenney, business senior and Alpha Phi member, said. " I think that people don ' t look past the letters to see who the person is and what the person is involved in. " " Greeks have been working hard to improve their image on campus and to inform the public that we are more responsible than they give us credit for, " Kevin Jessing, bio-chemistry sophomore and Delta Sigma Phi member, said. Due to the competitive rush system at the University, Greeks comprised only about 10% of the student population. Despite their small numbers, Greeks were active in many organizations. " We have members in 105 different student organizations on campus, " Joal Cannon, government-pre-law junior and Alpha Delta Pi member, said. " Independents don ' t think we are very visible since many of our big projects are done for our own philanthropies in the community and not always on campus. " " I ' ve been here eight years, and it ' s my impression that Greeks are not particularly active in organizations outside of their own, " Jeff Hunt, graduate student in history, said. However, Greeks could be found in virtually every student organization. Many Greeks were members of honorary organizations as well as academic honorary groups, and 30 fraternity and sorority members were selected as Outstanding Students or Goodfellows in 1988. " We have someone on almost every committee, " Cliff Vrielink, Plan II sophomore and Delta Sig member, said. " Most of us join a club together as a group and, because we have fun in it together, we continue to participate in it. " Upon discovering Greek involvement, some students changed their pre-conceived opinions. " The perception I had of the Greek community coming into this job was incorrect, " Mike Fannin, Daily Texan News Editor and communications sophomore, said. " Greeks are active in the community and that was suprising to me. " " I ' d say that there is a definite trend toward more involvement in student organizations due to the recent increase in interaction between the University and the Greek system, " David Ruth, English-finance junior and Tau Kappa Epsilon member, said. " Greeks are becoming more visible to UT as a whole.

After 20 years, the sororities registered as campus organizations. Some people perceived the move not to register in 1968 as an avoidance of the anti-discriminatory clause on the reg- istration form. However, that clause was only one of five requirements, including the stip- ulation that campus organization membership be limited to students, faculty and staff, thus posing a problem for sorority alumnae. Another obstacle was finding a University advisor who had been initiated and could attend meetings as required. According to Panhellenic Advisor Evelyne Bennett, since the main point of registering was to gain use of University facilities, and since the sororities had gradually moved off campus and become self-governed, Panhellenic chose not to register. Panhellenic continued to enjoy a friend- ly relationship with the administration. But Bennett said campus registration was talked about off and on for the next 20 years. On Nov. 17, 1986, President William Cun- ningham appointed a commission to study the goals of student fraternal organizations, includ- ing the status of the off-campus sororities. As a result of the commission ' s report, issued on Oct. 9, 1987, Panhellenic, backed by a united alumnae group, decided it was in the best interest of the organizations to register. But even before that decision was made, Panhellenic decided to implement an open rush program. Closed rush had been a tradition fairly unique to the University since 1904. Open rush would allow any girl who registered with Pan- hellenic to attend all sorority houses during first round without regard to specific invitations. The closed rush program required that a rushee have an invitation to attend a particular house. According to Panhellenic Council President Christine Yura, accounting junior, many people thought that registration with the University would make open rush inevitable. " The two steps appeared to go hand-in-hand, but they were very separate issues, " Yura said. " Open rush was a Panhellenic Council issue, discussed since October and approved in De- cember. The University registration was voted on in January but had been talked about for over a year. It was talked about strictly with each sorority president and advisor. " Council registers with L7] after a 20 year absenc lr n " It was a good thing that we made the open rush decision ourselves before we even reg- istered. It looks better be cause we did it for ourselves not because the University suggested it. " Yura said one of the main reasons open rush passed was the declining number of rushees. However, the number was not expected to fluc- tuate in 1989 simply because not enough girls, especially small town girls, would be informed about the new opportunities provided by open rush. Similarity, immediate results in integrating the sororities were not expected. " Honestly, I think we ' ll get bad press after rush because some people think sororities will be integrated now, " Yura said. " The intentions are to eventually reach that but they, the people outside the system, have to see it realistically. We ' ve been the same for so long, and we just took two big steps. We ' ll just take it slowly and not expect too much too soon. " by Beverly Mullins 396 Pan) cllrnic Council Muh.icl Sir.

In addition to its annual philanthropy project and regular social functions, the University chapter also partic- ipated in Alpha Chi Omega ' s National Chal- lenge Program the Challenge to Excellence. " Each year the National directors choose six of the best chapters to participate. The idea is to pick a few areas that we feel could possibly be better and then set goals, " Kristi Warren, eco- nomics senior, said. National chapter provid impetus for improvemei Two years ago, a National officer was sent to meet with the sorority. This officer recommend- ed some broad categories to work on, such as scholarship, and helped the chapter set up spe- cific guidelines for improvement. Upon completion, the chapter sent a report to the National Council which then met in July to review the report. If the Council approved the report, the chapter received a trophy for meeting the Challenge to Excellence. " It ' s considered a great honor to be chosen and an achievement to meet the goals, " Jennifer Piskun, psychology junior, said.

It was a phrase often used to characterize the infamous attitudes of the Eighties. But was also the feel- ing Alpha Epsilon Phi had when volunteering with first grade students at the Blackshear El- ementary School. " That place puts me in the best mood, " Michelle Swango, interior design junior, said of the school. Blackshear received support from the sorority through the Austin Adopt-a-School Program. Under the direction of the Austin Independ- ent School District, volunteer groups first adopt- ed a class, then a grade and finally an entire school. The program targeted drop-out pre- vention, incentives for grades and attendence and morale boosters for teachers as well as for the students. Starting in the spring of 1988, AE Phi mem- bers spent time each week with their first grade class at Blackshear. Children were visited one- on-one by their " listening friends, " who brought them lunch and read and played with them. Some AE Phis were also matched with older children at the school. The sorority helped the children prepare for standardized tests and then threw a party for them after the tests. Additional activities included organizing a pic- nic and an Easter Egg Hunt. " It ' s enabled us to have more than just par- ties to think about, " philanthropic chairwoman Kim Oster, marketing junior, said. " Everyone loves the little kids and wants to go to the school. " AE Phi president Susie Berkowitz, finance junior, said working on projects for the children brought the sorority closer together. Blackshear Elementary, a priority school of AISD, had many children from economically distressed and broken families. Marilyn Rau, education junior, said of the children hunting eggs, " They are so needy, the first thing they thought about was eating them, not saving or playing with them. " " You don ' t realize how lucky you are until you see these kids, " Stacy Bennett, marketing junior, said. " It makes you want to give.

Yet, philanthropic activities also gave the girls a chance to work together while supporting a good cause. All sororities choose a national beneficiary, however, Alpha Gamma Delta was the first sorority to establish a national philanthropy. In 1979, they focused their attention on children and adopted the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation as the official beneficiary of their financial support and service. At the University, the Epsilon Delta Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delt a supported Juvenile Diabetes through two different activities. During the fall semester, the chapter vol- unteered their time to help organize the Austin JDF Walk-a-thon, held at Town Lake. Alpha Gams cheered on the walkers, registered and checked in participants, collected money and distributed t-shirts. " It was neat to see all the people there to help Juvenile Diabetes, " Kristen Aston, organiza- tional communication junior, said. In the spring semester, Alpha Gam held its first teeter-totter-a-thon for the JDF children. The Alpha Gams built their own teeter-totter and kept it going for 48 hours. Each girl teeter- tottered for an hour with a male partner. Alpha Gam wanted to have children particij in the event, yet for the present, each girl we continue to ask a guy to be her partner.

After a 17-year absence from the University, the Beta Alpha Chapter returned in 1965 under the direction of Alpha Xi Delta alumnae and collegiates from other chapters. The chapter celebrated with an anniversary dinner at its house, April 25. " We invited the team that recolonized 25 years ago and all the alumni we could, " Janet Mallory, international business junior, said. . The chapter was especially anxious to show off the redecoration renovation of their house to visiting alumnae. Improvements to the house included new landscaping, interior design, fur- niture and a swimming pool. " In the 25 years since our recolonization, Alpha Xi Delta has really grown. We ' re really excited to have alums come in who haven ' t visited in some time, " Mallory said. In addition to the usual mixers and matches, Ipha Xi hosted several theme parties through- out the year. Their fall casual entitled " Under the Big Top " featured a circus-type setting, with concession vendors and live animals. The spring semester was full of activities including the Annual Pink Rose Party which utilized a New Orleans theme and was subtitled " Party Gras. " In April, a full weekend of fes- tivities honored mothers at the annual Mom ' s Day celebration. The chapter went all out by throwing a wine and cheese party on Friday night and concluded with a brunch and fashion show on Saturday.

People bugged her, but she wouldn ' t say that ' s what made it fun, " Storey Blankenship, speech communication jun- ior, said. " When we got on 1-35 going south, everybody was trying to guess the whole way down. " But the mystery did not last long. As the buses drove closer to Selma, Texas, people start- ed to figure out that the unknown destination was Selma ' s famous Bluebonnet Palace. The evening was filled with country and western dancing and watching the in-house rodeo. However, not all of Delta Delta Delta ' s ac- tivities were such a mystery.

The University ' s Epsilon Beta Chapter set aside Monday, Feb. 29 through Sunday, March 6 to celebrate their Founders Week. Activities began on Monday, with a symposium composed of prominent guest speakers, and ended with a Founders Day Observance Program on Sunday. Highlights of the week included the annual volleyball tournament between Greek organ- izations, Ladies ' Night Out and the Delta Sig- ma Theta Talent Show. " We are very proud of the participation we have had in our Founders Week activities. We would also like to thank all those who par- ticipated in our celebration of 75 years of ex- cellence, " Hazel Jones, biology-pre-pharmacy senior, said. As their founders did before them, the Epsilon Beta Chapter played an active part in serving the community. " Delta Sigma Theta has displayed excellent service in the community for many years. This year we have done such things as donated blankets to the Salvation Army, cooked Thanks- giving dinner for a needy family, helped with the student elections and worked on the Jesse Jackson campaign. We strive to be more than just a sorority. With the honor of being a Delta also comes a willingness to work hard, " Cas- sandra Ragland, chemical engineering sopho- more, said. by ReShonda Tate j .n V K Kimberly Baker Paula Baty 1 John McConnico I Karan Breaker Gwendolyn Campbell Rhonda Davis Kimberly Gee Hazel Jones Helen Newsome Sandra Phillips Rosalyn Shaw Mona Shirley Jeane Simmons Jean Simpson Belvolyn Smith Veronica Thrash Sharon Watkins Delta Sigma Theta 423 DELTA GAMMA Anchor Splash suppori Texas School for Blin As the warm summer days came to an end and school began, the members of Delta Gamma sponsored their second annual Anchor Splash. Held at the Lost Creek Country Club in Austin on September 26, the event helped the sorority raise funds for their favorite charity, the Texas School for the Blind. " The main purpose of Anchor Splash is to raise money, but it was also a lot of fun to watch, " Julie Hicks, business freshman, said. Anchor Splash was a series of water events in which various male organizations participated with the sorority. Events at Anchor Splash in- cluded inner tube races, medley relays, syn- chronized sw imming, a spirit contest and a mystery event. The mystery event this year was the " Wet T-shirt Relay, " where each member of a four-man team put on a wet t-shirt, swam a lap, took it off, and passed it to the next swimmer. " It was funny to see all those guys dog- paddling and splashing around, " Tracie Broth- ers, business sophomore, said. According to Anchor Splash chairwoman Tracy Morris, marketing senior, the participants seemed to enjoy the synchronized swimming best. " At first the guys thought the sjnchro- DINING IN STYLE: Andrew Boutotc, Leann Adams and Kristen Sanders help themselves to the buffet dinner at the Delta Gamma formal.

The money was raised through entrance fees and the Mr. Anchor Splash contest. Each group who entered Anchor Splash chose a represen- tative to participate in the Mr. Anchor Splash contest. Delta Gamma set up a booth in front of the University Co-op where the entire student body could vote. However, votes were not made by ballot, but through donations. In the end, the entrant with the most money in his name won the title of Mr. Anchor Splash. This year ' s Mr. Anchor Splash was Marty Shellist, a mem- ber of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity. After all of the events were over, Phi Kaj Pi fraternity emerged as the overall winner the competition.

The chapter became the first to register in the fall as a campus organization and held an open rush for women of non-Jewish origin for the first time since its founding 7 1 years ago. " Segregation had gone on long enough, " Alison Spitzer, journalism senior, said. " There was some opposition . . . but it ' s been good for the sorority. " A major concern was that the chapter would lose the cultural and religious cohesiveness that bound the women together. Traditions such as prayer in Hebrew before dinner and the re gular observance of Passover, however, did not deter the pledges from integrating themselves into the Delta Phi Epsilon fold. " We share our Jewish lifestyle now, " Spitzer said. At the Chapter Retreat following the winter break, the women, both Protestant and Jewish, shared their thoughts and discussed what re- ligion meant to themselves and the chapter. " It was a moving experience that brought us to- gether in a way we didn ' t expect, " Spitzer said. Delta Phi Epsilon ' s newest tradition, how- ever, did not involve women or culture. D Phi E ' s Diamond Dudes was a group of men honored by the chapter for their support. " The little brothers came through when we needed them, " Spitzer said. The sorority also kept up its standards in other ways. Delta Phi Epsilon had the highest grade point average among registered sororities at the University. The chapter ' s philanthropic activities includ- ed Balloon Ascension, a lofty program held every year at the begining of Round-Up. Par ticipants buy a balloon for a dollar which goes t Cystic Fibrosis. Over 3000 were set free at th Parade, and the owner of the balloon whic travelled farthest received a prize. The real spirit of Delta Phi Epsilon was bes summarized by Spitzer who said, " We stud hard, party hard, and, man, are we tough!

The Gamma Phis hosted a Greek Fall Festival, Nov. 7, to give all Panhellenic collegiates and alumnae a chance to mingle and raise money for their respective philanthropies. Each group sponsored a booth and sold any- thing from the Gamma Phi parents group ' s baked goods to the Kappa Kappa Gamma alumnae group ' s caladiums. However, sorority alumnae, actives and par- ents were not the only participants. Three com- mercial artists and a jeweler came to sell their work as well. Among the artists was Mary Curtis, a designated Texas Sesquicentennial Art- ist whose work sold upwards of $ 1,500. The Gamma Phi booth raised over $1,000 which was allocated to the sorority ' s philan- thropy, Camp Seshelt in Columbia, Vancouver, and to the Annie Hill fund. The Hill fund was named after the first house mother at UT ' s Alpha Zeta chapter of Gamma Phi Beta and was established to help collegiate members with financial difficulties.

" The com- mercial artists were even impressed, " she said. " They said it was the first time they had ever seen an event like this ready before the doors opened. " Booth said the alumnae, parents and col- legiate members began planning the festival in February 1987, and met at least once a week until the festival was underway. The Alpha Zeta girls also worked as host- esses, set up booths and sold advance tickets to UT sororities, alumnae and parents of Gamn Phi Beta members. Heather Haynes, RTF junior, said, " Tl alumnae could not have done it without tl parents. They worked closely, putting up poste and cooperating with community ties. " " Alum-wise the re was a strong Panheller feeling, " Haynes said. " It was nice to see finally come together for the first time, and nc we are planning for the future.

The year was filled with philanthropic activities but this event left a strong emotional impression on all members. Amy Gough, public relations junior, said, " It was really fantastic to help out with the Special Olympics. It made me realize how fortunate we are to have our health. " During the events, the Kappa Alpha Thetas made certain the participants were at the right place at the right time, presented some of the awards and provided manpower and encour- agement wherever it was needed. Service chairwoman Julie Murrell, English junior, said, " It was so rewarding to work with these children. They have such a drive to win and although they are physically handicapped, inside they are people just like everyone else. " In addition to the Special Olympics, the sorority also tutored at Ortega Elementary School, participated in the Break the Cycle of Child Abuse Bike-a-thon and, with Phi Gar ma Delta, hosted a Halloween haunted hou for underprivileged children.

Sororities have two primary func- tions. The first is social involvement and the other is an annual philanthropy project. Kappa Delta discovered a creative way to combine the two into a social extravaganza that raised money for the prevention of child abuse. Every year the chapters of Kappa Delta planned Shamrock Project to raise money for the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse. Each chapter had a different approach, and the projects consisted of practically eve- rything from posting banners around cities to an annual tug-of-war, as they did at the University. Public relations chairwoman Dena Stapleton, communications sophomore, said " We chose this because it is something that will be suc- cessful and that will grow year after year. Once the teams do come out, they ' ll come back next year. " For the second year in a row, Kappa Delta sponsored their games at Survival Hill Country in Northwest Austin. Approximately 20 teams signed up in an attempt to wrestle the title of Kings-of-the-Mud from the reigning champs, the Fiji ' s. " It ' s definitely our biggest event of the year, as far as PR goes, " Stapleton said. " We wanted to involve the entire Greek system. " The tug-of-war included teams of 10 from fraternities and independent organizations, al- though fraternities made up most of the en- trants. " We do have mostly Greeks, but this year we had the Cowboys, Spurs and other independ- ents, " assistant chairwoman Karen Kettleman, finance junior, said. " Each year we ' re going to try to get more people involved, like maybe next year we can get guys from the dorms and the ROTC to come out and participate. " The cost to enter a team was $75, with all proceeds going to the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse. The victors received gift certificates from local businesses such as Mad Dog and Beans, Lone Star Cafe, Trudy ' s Texas Star, and Jack Brown ' s Cleaners. by Christine Cotte Kappa Delta - 435 DELTS GO DOWN: The team of Delta Tau Delta goes for a dip as the referee signals their loss.

The Pickers con- sisted of approximately 1 5 members and uti- lized three-part harmony and two guitar players. The group performed at an assortment of functions: Dad ' s Day, retirement homes and, most importantly, rush. " There is a sense of feeling more involved in Kappa by being a member of the Pickers, " captain Ana Quattrochi, journalism junior, said. The Pickers revised old songs such as " Day by Day " and " Sand Man " and added a Kappa flavor. The girls developed a Kappa sound by gathering all the songs and brainstorming to create catchy tunes. " All of us really tried hard to harmonize our voices in order to sound united, " Quattrochi said. " Sometimes we worked for hours on end for it to sound perfect. " They also composed their own songs in- cluding " Sixteen Hours, " which captured the reality and humor of dealing with college life. Jenny Johnson, advertising sophomore, said, " There is such a good feeling about singing when I realize that all the other Kappas are enjoying our performances and appreciating our hard work. " Pickers were chosen through an initial fall try- out which required the ability to blend voices within the group. The girls had two obligatory practices a week and constant rehearsals before each performance. When performance time ar- rived they were well prepared and impeccably dressed in cotton-picker uniforms to suit their name. The other sorority members strongly su ported The Pickers and often times, such during rush, joined in to sing with the group] Michelle Gibson, English sophomore, sail " We get constant support from our chapter, makes us really feel good with such strong bacl up from everyone.

Rather than going through for- al rush and joining an already existing so- rrity, the girls wanted to begin their own jganization. " We thought it would be a neat experience to lart our own, and after talking about it we got liore and more excited, " Perez, an elementary jluoation junior, said. The idea to begin the primarily Catholic lirority was suggested by a close friend of Perez, lid on Oct. 21, 1986 the decision to organize lie chapter became final. From that day forward lie three girls worked together so that their (ream of founding their own sorority could come true. They decided to base the sorority on Catholic principles and the bonds of their own friendship. " We wanted to share what the three of us had with other girls, " Greenfield, an organ- izational communication junior, said. " We also wanted to choose girls who were willing to put as much into the sorority as we have. " The process of starting a new sorority was a long and difficult one. The constitution had to be written, rituals had to be established and traditions had to be formed.

Office space was donated to them by the Center, as well as the use of their facilities and supplies for meet- ings and social functions. The sorority gained its first pledge class in the fall of 1987. Alcocer, a marketing-finance junior, felt that the dedication she helped put into the founding of Mu Epsilon Theta paid off when this pledge class was initiated in the spring.

This party to end all parties was an annual rite practiced every year since the founding of Pi Beta Phi in 1867. Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma celebrated Monmouth to com- memorate their foundings at Monmouth Col- lege in Illinois. President Janie Dunne, Plan II junior, said the party was an opportunity for the entire sorority to feel more united as a group. The honoring of Monmouth was not only commemorated by Texas Pi Phi ' s, but by Pi Beta Phi chapters throughout the country. " You take a certain pride in knowing you are part of something larger than UT tradition, " Cathie Jurgensmyer, Plan II sophomore , said. Yet there is another feeling of closeness shared between the Pi Phi ' s. In preparation for the Monmouth formal, each pledge class planned a pre-party, consisting of dinner or a picnic in various parks in Austin. A " high stakes " scavenger hunt was held before the party began the weekend of activities. " If you do not find all the placed clues, you do not get to go to the party, " Ann Rittlemeyer, economics-history senior, said. Most of the time the clues were found by the pledges, and eve-] ryone was able to attend the gathering. The Pi Phi ' s not only observed sorority tra-J ditions but helped the local community byl volunteering their time and effort at Brack- 1 enridge Children ' s Hospital. Dunne said the Pi Phi ' s visited the hospital S monthly and provided different activities for? patients to enjoy.

In this instance it was child abuse pre- |ention which roused their spirit and support. Since the chapter ' s founding in 1939, the I omen of Sigma Delta Tau had raised monetary lapport for their national organizations ' list of Ihild abuse centers and charitable organizations. April 30 saw the kickoff of one of the most Iriginal of the years ' fundraisers. Held at I SAY ' CHEESE ' : After arriving at the Sigma Delta Tau I formal, Martin Segal, Sharon Lee Weinberg, Renee IShoenberun and Paul Danziger pose for photographer I Misael Saucedo. Westwood Country Club, " Here Today, Gone to Maui " attracted over 250 members and their dates. After partying the night away, the women raffled off two round-trip tickets to Maui. Project Outreach also received the support of the chapter. Over 50 members took part in the campus-wide project designed to marshall the support of service organizations for a variety of campus and community projects. " The chapter has a tradition of support for service since its original founding at Cornell in 1917, " Sheri Eizenbaum, economics junior, said. " One of our pledge requirements is to work service projects at child abuse centers. " The main focus of Sigma Delta Tau, how- ever, was not philanthropic but rather more internal in nature. Carrying on tra- dition, specifically the Jewish lifestyle and religion, and providing a basis for Jewish wom- en to share in the culture of their race bonded the women of Sigma Delta Tau. The chapter also took high honors as their national organization awarded them Most Out- standing Chapter and Most Outstanding Pledge Retention Awards.

According to service chairwoman Bergan Morris, advertising soph- omore, turnout was so large that participants were entered on a first-come first-served basis. The tournament, held at the Morris- Williams Golf Course, April 22, attracted various campus organizations. While the teams, made up of both fraternities and independents, played rounds of gol f, the girls registered golfers, cad- died, kept scores and supervised. " Caddying was the best job, " Norris said. " All the girls thought it was a blast. " The top individual was awarded a grand champion trophy, and awards were given to first, second and third place teams. Profits from the tournament went to Zeta Tau Alpha so- rority ' s national philanthropy, the National As- sociation for Retarded Citizens. Christin Williams, business junior, said, " The golf tournament was a really neat way to make money because you got to meet a lot of people and still raise money for our philan- hropy, plus all the guys love it! " A second activity designed to raise money for the sorority ' s philanthropy was " Comedy Night, " a competition among aspiring campus comedians held at the Laff Stop. Zeta Tau Alpha raised additional funds for the National Association for Retarded Citizens when the ac- tives sponsored their first pool tournament. The University chapter was recognized for its active participation in community projects wh | it received the " Best in Province " award " Zeta Days, " the sorority ' s annual state coi| vention, in Dallas. . 448 Za Tau Alpha FRONT ROW: Rebecca Jean EUiolt.

Thou- sands of shirts were sold and several other uni- versities began selling the shirts also. " Many people asked the meaning of the slogan. There is no specific meaning. However, its connotative meaning is simply the promotion of unity and pride in the black community, " Stanley Lewis, biology-pre-med junior, said. Part of the proceeds from the t-shirt sale went toward Alpha Phi Alpha ' s scholarship fund. Scholarships were awarded on the basis of ac- ademic achievement and need to area high school seniors planning to attend the University and to qualified undergraduates. Alpha Phi Alpha also sponsored voter reg- istration and education drives and its annual Founders Week Celebration. Tutoring programs, study-skills workshops and ' PSAT SAT workshops were projects they par- ticipated in to " reaffirm their strong committ- ment to the academic health of the commu- nity, " Lewis said.

The Acacias and their dates met at the fra- ternity house at 4 p.m. on Feb. 13 and began a small " bon voyage " celebration. " It was a def- inite mood-setter, " President Alan Krockover, government sophomore, said. After the party, the group boarded a Grey- hound bus and headed for San Antonio, arriving at about 7 p.m. " All the loving couples then went off to the fine restaurants that the Riverwalk has to offer, " Krockover said. Many of the couples ate at the Lone Star Cafe near the Riverwalk. After dinner the Acacias mixed, mingled and enjoyed the sights of San Antonio. Some of their activities included paddleboating and horse- carriage rides.

According to Krockover, " The excursion was very easy to plan and both the planning as w as the trip went very smoothly.

The name brings visions of stars, gambling and gorgeous beaches to the minds of many ... or at least it did to those of Alpha Epsilon Pi members. All of these dreams and more were represented at the annual AEPi Hollyw ood parry Nov. 21-22. The bash was six weeks in the making and lots of hard work went into its success. The largest and most dramatic decoration was the 20-foot Hollywood Hills sign adorning the front ot the house. Adam Aronin, liberal arts junior, was re- sponsible for the Walk of Fame wall depicting caricatures of such stars as Groucho Marx, Rod- ney Dangerfield and Sammy Davis, Jr. An open party featuring the band Third Language ignited the festivities for the week- end-long extravaganza. The Playboy Club, re- sembling a Hollywood casino, provided the opportunity for mock gambling and a chance for rushees to win prizes as well as enjoying the antics of the blackjack dealer Matt Kades, com- munications freshman.

Plans for the improvement had been in the making for about ten years. At the end of the ipring ' 87 semester, work on the project finally began with major funding provided through the Texas Beta Student Aid Fund and substantial inancial contributions from Beta alumni. " Since the Betas have a hundred and one years worth of alumni, we were able to collect funds to have our house totally redone, " Trey Franklin, liberal arts sophomore, said. Through precise planning the house offered more possibilities. Six additional new rooms made it possible to accomodate 48 residents. The refurnished basement was by far the fa- vorite of the Betas.

After its reopening in 1986, Delta Chi was able to hold its first organized rush in 1987. Working hard to attain the 60-member goal to become a full-fledged fraternity, Delta Chis realized the importance of rush activities for the success of their chapter. " Rush is not just something that ' s held once a year. It ' s a continuing activity that goes on BARTENDING WITH STYLE: Gary Barrows, business senior, takes a drink order at the Halloween party. throughout the year, " Rush Chairman John McElwain, government sophomore, said. " Sure we have a formal rush in the spring, but we work on expanding membership all year long. " Formal rush peaked with the " Last Night in Pompeii " party during Round-Up weekend in early March. " The Round-Up party wasn ' t just for UT Greeks. It was open, so we attracted lots of different people. It ' s our big chance to show off to the community. We are working on creating our own traditions and showing what we have, " Kris McKinley, accounting senior, said. In addition to attracting new members to expand the chapter, Delta Chi stressed the im- portance of retaining current membership. Events that helped the members function as a fraternity and experience brotherhood includl the Dad ' s Day barbeque on Nov. 14, a H;l loween party with the Texas Tech chapter, ] Christmas party, Round-Up and a road trip Norman for a party with Delta Ch i chapt | from the University of Oklahoma, Oklahorj State University, Texas A M and the Urj versify of Kansas.

The Wranglers and Delta Sigma Phi :d off for the final round and after a grueling 1 exhausting 30-minute match, the Wran- rs secured the pushball championship title. The tournament was an annual event for Ita Sigma Phi since the mid ' 70s and many ternities and other organizations looked for- rd to participating in it. " We ' re here to beat the steroids out of the Wranglers, " Delta Tau Delta member Mike Whittaker, geology senior, said. Eleven teams of 35 members each from fra- ternities, independents. Cowboys, Wranglers and Spurs paid a $100 entry fee to compete in the event. Groups who entered more than one team paid only a $50 fee for each additional team. The net proceeds from the entry fees, about $600, went entirely to the March of Dimes. " Since all the proceeds go to charity, we don ' t award big prizes to the winners. Just winning the title for the year is a big enough reward, " Tim Sexton, civil engineering senior, said. While participation on the teams was vol- untary, most teams encouraged the biggest and strongest group members to help in the struggle. " It ' s brutal, " Delta Sig Vice President John Emmett, finance junior, said. " It ' s ba- sically a test of strength to see who ' s the meanest and toughest out there. There are no rules except that you can ' t openly hit someone. If you do, and you get caught, then you ' re permanently removed from the game. " In addition to providing support for the March of Dimes, the tournament also offered an opportunity for the many groups at the Uni- versity to work together towards a common cause.

" On stage were The Spaces, a group of Deke alumni who rocked the night with their unique- blend of psychedelic Halloween music. Even though the band quit at 1 :00 a.m. and the beer was gone by 3:00 a.m., the place was still packed with people partying until sunrise. President Dimitri Zgourides, liberal ar ior, explained the reason for the success of the party.

Yet some children do not have an opportunity to share in the ex- citement of this holiday. Members of Delta Upsilon helped to make the season merrier by hosting a Christmas party on Dec. 4 for children who were sponsored by Child Incorporated of Austin, a child development program geared towards low-income families. " This is the first year that we held this parry, " President Paul Miller, English junior, said. " The chapter as a whole chose the project. " About 50 children, each accompanied by a parent, gathered at the DU house to watch the movie The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. After the show they enjoyed refreshments. The main event of the party was a surprise visit from Santa. Santa, portrayed by Miller, entertained the children from his sleigh. The children took turns sitting on Santa ' s lap and telling him what they wanted for Christmas. They were then presented with large bags filled with fresh fruit, candies, coloring books, bal- loons and other surprises. The gifts were do- nated by Austin merchants including Safeway and McDonald ' s and Wendy ' s restaurants. " It was hard to say who had the merriest time, the children, the chapter members Santa, " Miller said. " The Christmas party was a great success ai everyone enjoyed it. There was a horse-dra carriage there which also really excited the ch dren. We worked hard to spread our joy others and the children seemed very pleased DU little sister Leigh Anne Quebedeaux, . ementary education sophomore, said.

Parents, friends and alumni as well as Delta Tau Delta members participated in the tournament. " The tournament paired up fathers and sons with other fathers and sons. This really gave the fathers an opportunity to meet other parents as well as fraternity members, " Vice President Tim xiogan, business junior, said. Dad ' s Day, a tradition honored campus- wide, was held to invite parents to visit students in order to get a taste of their daughter or son ' s involvement on campus. Student associations at the University, including fraternities, planned special events geared towards allowing the par- ents to have fun while spending time with their University students. Coogan considered Dad ' s Day not only a family occasion but also a time to show parents what the Delts actually do. " The guys like to have their parents see house. It ' s a weekend to show the parents j exactly where their money is going, and it ' s also a good chance for the parents to come and ' catch up ' with their old friends who they don ' t get to see very often, " Coogan said. The festivities proceeded with a casino night for the parents. Participants bought chips to play with and the money raised was then used to pay for prizes that were auctioned off for the chips at the end of the evening. The following evening an awards banquet was held at La Mansion hotel. Awards such as " Best Pledge, " " Best GPA " and " Best Athlete " were given as well as scholarships to members meeting a variety of qualifications. Five $1,000 scholarships were awarded to meritous upperclassmen who were judged ac- cording to academic standing, contributions to the community and fraternity and financial need.

" We would like to thank all the groups and organizations that participated to make this one of the largest Greek Shows in Kappa ' s history. We also want to thank the spectators who traveled across Texas to see this event, " Pres- ident Kent Montgomery, advertising-marketing senior, said. While Kappas might have been known for their social activities, they also provided out- standing service, especially to the Black com- munity. Their service projects included working at the Salina Rest Home and their Youth Inc. program. This tutoring program took Kappa members out to Pierce Junior High School every Wednesday afternoon to tutor young under- privileged children. Other projects included sponsoring the an- nual Miss Black UT pageant, and the Kappa Spring Scholarship, which was awarded to an outstanding University-bound Austinite in fi- nancial need.

" Over $25,000 and one week of continuous labor went into preparation for one night of fun at the Kappa Alpha house, the Kappa Alpha Christmas Formal. The party was held Saturday Dec. 5, with over 300 mem- bers and guests attending. " It is one of the most incredible parties at UT, and it has been ranked as one of the top college parties in the country, " Social Chairman Walt Reynolds, marketing junior, said. The 45 pledges were responsible for building the various rooms and decorating the house with the help of active members. " It was a fun party because how it turned out was all up to us, " pledge Guy Hallberg, eco- nomics junior, said. Members and their dates entered the party by walking under a 30-foot tunnel strung with colored Christmas lights. Once inside, the guests d a choice of rooms to visit. " The rooms were extended outdoors with tarps enclosing the party; tunnels made of chick- en wire and cedar connected the rooms to- gether, " Reynolds said. To the left of the foyer a piano bar awaited the KAs and their dates. Further on was " The COME AND GET IT: Kappa Alpha members and their guests load up their plates at a KA burgers and beer mixer Feb. 19.

" We even had a running river down in the basement, " Reynolds said. " Guests had to cross a bridge to get to the bar on the other side. " The dance floor and rock band, The Business, was located in the main part of the house. A mariachi band was located in the backyard where four smaller rooms had been constructed. These rooms, called Butthuts, were designed so that guests had to crawl into them. " Each room had its own theme. One roo I the Coors Light Room, was constructed entirl out of beer cans with over 1,500 cases of b] lining the ceiling and walls, " Hallberg said.

However, members of Kappa Sig- a believed that none of these traditions had ore of an intense impact than their Texas Independence Day Celebration, March 2. To commemorate Texas Independence Day, Kappa Sigs filled the week of Feb. 29-March 5 with impressive activities in ' which all students re encouraged to join. Activities included a renade, an open mixer, a road trip to Mexico, campus-wide party and a closed party for ppa Sig members and their dates. The Monday night serenade was one of a different breed. The members donned Mexican attire, complete with scrapes, sombreros and exican flags. Accompanied by a mariachi ,nd, the members wandered to sorority houses singing traditional Mexican songs and announc- ing their open mixer scheduled for Wednesday night. " It ' s definitely a little different than the typ- ical serenade. At some point, we got kind of loud and obnoxious, but the sororities did not m to mind too much, " Alan Taylor, eco- omics senior, said. On Wednesday night, Kappa Sig entertained embers of different sororities. The fraternity members furnished their guests with music and margaritas served with a " Mexican flair. " ursday night was highlighted by a traditional road trip to Mexico for both pledges and actives. President John Savardi, honors finance se- nior, said about the trip, " It ' s traditional and a good chance for actives and pledges to get together and enjoy the week ' s festivities. It provides a very realistic touch to our Mexican festival. " The campus-wide party was held on Friday evening. The fraternity furbished their house with a stylish Mexican setting. There was a $5 admission charge through which the treasurer collected almost $600. The collection went to- ward the door prize, an all expense paid trip for two to the beaches of Mexico. The remainder of the proceeds from the party was donated to Texas Society for Autistic Citizens. " The open party is getting bigger and beil We have a good time and it ' s for a good cau:| Chris Kroeger, marketing senior, said.

Approximately 1,500 people, including UT ludents and other university students from |:ross Texas, attended the event. Fraternities lid sororities from the University and various Irher schools " stepped " across the stage in lopes of keeping their dream of black achieve- jient alive at Huston-Tillotson College. " Years ago, Martin Luther King had a dream ' - the dream that someday the black struggle I ' ould be over. We feel that the only way to liake this dream possible is through a quality plication. If the students attending Huston- Tillotson can ' t get their books, that ' s just one more barrier in their plight for that quality education, " Michael Anderson, physical edu- cation-psychology senior, said. The Omegas donated over $1,500 from the Greek Show proceeds to a book scholarship fund. Members of Omega Psi Phi purchased the textbooks from local bookstores and Huston- Tillotson students were allowed to check them out, free of charge, and return them at the end of the semester. " A lot has been done to help black students succeed in college, but so much more needs to be done. By sponsoring this book scholarship fund, the Omegas are giving back to the black community. Had it not been for the struggle of past black college students, blacks would not ! have been in the University today, " President Clarence Hill, print journalism senior, said. The scholarship fund was one of many proj- ects Omega Psi Phi participated in yearly for the benefit of the Austin community. " We have done such things as adopted a needy family for Thanksgiving, sponsored a Halloween party for underprivileged and hand- icapped kids, donated our services to Big Broth- ers Little Brothers of Austin and donated to the United Negro College Fund. We also sponsor an on-campus scholarship to a qualified UT un- dergraduate, " Hill said. by ReShonda Tate MOMENT OF SUSPENSE: Omega support- ers nervously await the announcement of the April 9 Greek Show winner.

" We help out nursing patients as well as the infirm elderly that are living in their own homes, " Don Kloster, English junior, said. Kloster, chairman of the Greek and Student Organization and Lambda Chi Alpha member also said that this program would be expanding into a major force to combat this social problem. " Eventually, we hope to have offices in the city where the elderly can call if they need help. These offices would act as ce nters for the eld- erly, " Kloster said. About twice a month, Lambda Chi members provided activities for the elderly. Projects in- cluded taking the citizens out to dinner and to Longhorn basketball games, sponsoring a casino night for them and decorating their doors at Christmas. Some funding for the projects was to come rom a special benefit concert in the spring given by country music star George Strait and a grant provided by the Hogg Foundation. " We plan to build this organization into a self supporting group that will eventually pro- vide transportation, a hotline whatever the elderly need, " Dan Schmidt, economics junior, said.

A group of rowdy men crowded around a small table, laughing and joking. These were some seniors of Phi Delta Theta. After quite a while, they came to an agree- ment on a story topic. " We want you to write about our trip to Boys ' Town, " they said. About 150 Phi Delts and their dates loaded into four buses for a road trip to Nuevo Laredo on April 1 and 2. " This was the first time to have other mem- bers go besides seniors. It makes it a lot more fun to have more people come with us, " David Holt, history senior, said. The Phi Delts arrived in Nuevo Laredo late on Friday, April 1, and were entertained at the Cadillac Bar by a band called The Male Men. " Alonzo ' Lonnie ' Francis Harrison was the M.C. He ' s the Phi Delt porter. He ' s great! " Jeff Barnett, prebusiness junior, said. After a late morning recovery in the hotel, Saturday saw them watching, as well as betting, on a couple of rounds of mud wrestling outside the Papagallo Bar. " In the past, things have gotten pretty out of hand. The crowd cheers the girls on. Some guys get up and participate, " Holt said.

Phi De T PHI GAMMA DELTA Halloween shrieks of horrc bring squeals of delig Screeech, Hissss, Booo! The sounds of Halloween came alive Oct. 30 at the Phi Gamma Delta Haunted House at 300 West 27th Street. The Fijis ' house was opened to the invited organizations on Halloween eve from 7:30-9:00 p.m. The invited organizations brought in kids of all ages from around Austin and included three churches and a number of elementary schools in Austin school districts. Other groups such as the Mary-Lee Foundation and Big Brothers and Sisters, who had come to the event in past years, were invited but unable to come this time. The Turman House, a juvenile half-way house, attended the event for the first time. Fiji member Paul Schweizer, liberal arts junior, vol- jnteered at Turman House two mornings a week and extended the invitation to the group. " We took about 14 of our boys over to the house, and they really appreciated it, " Lori Westfall, community coordinator at Turman House said. " These boys were teenagers, so the members gave them an extra-scary show. " With about 1 50 children passing through the grand tour to be pleasantly terrified with its thrills and chills, Michael Ellington, Fiji public- relations director and Haunted House coor- dinator, said that the haunted house was very well attended. The outside of the house had been decorated to resemble the graphic face of a night-stalking werewolf. The 8-10 minute indoor tour in- cluded a wax museum, a man-eating monster, and a special effects room which, with the use of black paper and strobe lights, presented the illusion of a spinning room. Along with all of this excitement were skits and music through- out the tour and refreshments provided by so- rority Kappa Alpha Theta. The Fijis, pledges and actives both, worked 30-50 people at a time and 1 5 hours a day for a week to complete it in time for the big day. Michael Ellington said, " The important thing was that we were all together when we worke it and we did it for the public of Austin, for kids who have nowhere else to go. " Overall, the evening was a huge success. I Croft, a sixteen year old boy from the Tun House, said, " It was all very unexpected unusual and well-worth the visit. " The Haunted House was not the only project. The members also took an active pai the MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driv carwash held Oct. 24 and in the PUSH (!

" But we still managed to pull everything together and get to the playoffs, " David John- son, computer science junior, said. " Sports helped us to learn to rely on each other. We got to know each other better and depend on each other as a team. " We ' re not a very large fraternity we like to do a lot together, and that includes having a good time, " David DeMarco, liberal arts junior, said. The smaller size of the group not only con- tributed to their success in intramural sports, but also created a sense of security among the members. Paul Wyandt, business sophomore, said, " We ' re all able to act more like ourselves, because we know each other so well. Phi Kap also said that their close- ness made the members more cooperative when accomplishing goals, such as planning and carrying out social events. Matt Comstock, lib- eral arts sophomore, said, " We couldn ' t get anything done without this closeness. It takes a shorter amount of time for us to do things because people around here are willing to help. Whether they were throwing a brunch and party for their parents during Dad ' s Day, host- ing a fajita and margarita mixer with the Spooks, or scoring a touchdown, Phi Kappa Sigma used its team effort to achieve success. by Deborah Chung Vic Akorta III Keith Allen Daniel Austin John Bahr Christopher Block Craig Boyd Ronald Brooks Michael Broussard Kevin Brown Ramon Burdeos Jason Burr Bryon Chesley Daniel Deans David DeMarco Dan Devereux Greg Devereux Willcm Dicke Jerry Dollar Jeffrey Evans Houston Foppiano John Frazier Phi Kappa Sigma 489 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRONT ROW: Matthew H.

They helped the needy during the holiday seasons, but primarily concentrated their efforts on vis- iting the elderly at the Eastern Hills Conva- lescent Center (EHCC). Throughout the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays the Phi Raps gave their time so that the hungry in the Austin area could have food. Five complete Thanksgiving dinners were do- nated to St. Ignatius Catholic Church and then dispensed to needy families in the parish com- munity. The Phi Kaps also helped serve a free Thanksgiving meal for the hungry at the Capitol Grounds sponsored by the Austin Food Bank. " It was fantastic; it took something of them- selves to give to someone else and that ' s rare these days, especially in young people, " Max Earl, community service coordinator of St. Ignatius Church, said. In addition to their Christmas and Thanks- giving projects, the Phi Kaps and their little sisters spent one Sunday of each month during the fall semester with the senior citizens at the EHCC. On each trip, 15 to 20 members went to the center to visit with residents, play games with them or just to listen to their stories. " The guys seemed glad they could make someone else happy and bring some sunshine into their lives. Knowing that it meant so much to them made our guys feel good about them- selves, " President Robert Ayala, real estati finance junior, said. Besides visiting the center, Phi Kappa Thei decorated its hallways at Christmas time an assisted the staff when minor repairs were neec ed at the center. " We hope they continue their involvemen They are a very enthusiastic group of kids, Sigrid Gentle, EHCC community liason, said. " We plan on escalating the project in years t come, " Ayala said.

PUSH - - Play Units for the Severely Handicapped was a pyramid-shaped structure designed to provide interaction for the disabled. It was up to each chapter of Pi Kappa Phi to raise the $10,000 needed to purchase a play unit, which was donated in their name to a city or hospital which needed it the most. The University chapter ot Pi Kappa Phi incorporated the idea of using Adventure Games of Austin to meet their $10,000 goal The tournament took place Nov. 7-8. Eight fraternities entered 10-member teams that were Timothy Atkinson Warren Becht Patrick Dillawn required to pay a $ 1 50 entry tec. Darren Stroud, petroleum engineering junior, said, " The tournament went great. It was very organized. All the teams had a great time-. " The game itselt was played with guns that shot paint pellets. The object ot the game was to capture the other team ' s flag. The game was based on a point system in which points were given for " hits. " Once a player was " hit, " he was out of the game. After each game, the players were required to go through a check station, where he was inspected for " splats " ot paint. The tournament was played on two fields, round robin style. Playing on two fields enabled four teams to play at one time, thus allowing each team to play three times. Phi Gamma Delta took first place, while Delta Sigma Ph ancl Tau Kappa Epsilon took second and thin place, respectively. When asked what it took to win, Warrei Willey, business sophomore, said, " Teamwor! plain teamwork. " " The tournament games can only get biggc and better.

" Big John was our porter for many years and we started giving him birthday parties a few years ago to show our appreciation for him, " John Drouilhet, biology-pre-med senior, said. " He died three years ago and now the party has evolved into a kind of memorial for him. " The celebration began Friday afternoon and lasted until 7:30 p.m. A second party started at 10 p.m. and attracted a much larger crowd. " There were about 2,000 people at the eve- ning party, " Drouilhet said. " The line to get in was about a block long. I ' d say the first party was mostly Greeks, but the second one was probably an even mix. " " I think the night crowd was the biggest one we ' ve had in years. It was crazy, " Kyle Moore, economics junior, said. " We had 60 kegs of beer on reserve and we only had two left when it was over. " Partygoers paid a $3 admission fee for the afternoon party and donations were taken at the door for the evening party. The proceeds from the parties went to Cerebral Palsy. Entertainment was provided in the afternoon by the reggae group Panmasters, rock group Neptune and a special appearance by Joe Ely. The Main Attractions took the stage for the evening music. " We were sponsored by J.D. ' s Pub and MAKE THAT TWO, PLEASE: Guests at the March 25th Porter Party pitch in their tickets in exchange for a glass of beer. Birthday bash keep memory of Big John air . Grub. They let us use their liquor license at our house and they bartended at the afternoon party where we sold beer tickets since you can ' t sell beer without a license, " Collins King, economics senior, said. Although the party was given to honor Big John, several groups have protested the event in past years. " People have said that it ' s racist because our old ads depicted a black man in a servile po- sition. That ' s not what this party is about. We ' re just trying to show people that we really appreciated all the things Big John did for us while he was here, " King said. " Big John was the biggest fan of the panl Kyle Moore, economics junior, said. ' thought it was great that we threw a party for him. " Besides commemorating their own porterl Kappa Alpha took the opportunity to honoij other fraternities ' porters, too. " We always invite all the porters to the pal but this year we sent a limousine to all houses to pick them up. It made the party stl more special to them, " King said. by Chrissi Noyd Keith Beckman Andrew Bentley Dan Berggren William Borchers Phillip Braithwaite David Clifton Bentley Craft Ralph DeShong HHi MI HHI I HIHB I rr. r 496 _ Pi Kappa Alpha David Gore Matt Green Vean Gregg III David Hooker James Hubbard Derek Irish Gregory Kocian ARRIVING IN STYLE: Rihner, Andrew Medlen and John Drouilhet pose with a porter after he arrives at the March 25 Porter Party in a limousine provided by the Pikes.

I Since about 50 percent of the pledges were Im out of state, they were asked to collect liations mainly from their hometowns during Christmas holidays. Locally, the actives and pledges worked toward publicizing the event to the media around the Austin area in an effort to maximize the outcome. Letters were sent prior to the event to businesses and alumni requesting donations for their cause. Feb. 1 was officially designated as " Bounce for Beats Day " by the mayor of Austin and at noon the pledges started to bounce. Their object was to bounce a basketball continuously for 100 hours. The bouncing started at the Sammies ' house where each pledge took two-hour shifts to get all the hours in. " It gave me a good feeling to know that I could contribute to a good cause, " Jeff Silver- stein, aerospace engineering freshman, said. In addition to bouncing at their house, mem- bers also performed exhibition " bouncing " in Austin area shopping malls and on the campus West Mall in an attempt to collect donations from shoppers and from students. The bouncing marathon received television coverage and also included celebrity bouncers such as Dave Cody the sportscaster from tel- evision station KTBC news. " Our efforts to raise this large sum of money may eventually help with breakthroughs in heart cancer research.

You walk through the en- trance way, greeted by a strobe light. Smoky dry ice fills the air. Bamboo stalks and leaves hang thickly everywhere. Through the greenery, the lake and waterfall glisten in the dim light. The banana plants abound. Festive partygoers, clad in camouflage, dance to the music of the Killer Bees. This is not a description of the wilderness, but the yard of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house at their annual Jungle Party, held Nov. 7. " LIT SAE is known nationally for their Jungle Party, " President Chris Nichols, petroleum en- gineering senior, said. " All SAEs have them, but everyone says ours is the best. " No jungle scene would be complete without live animals. Included in this jungle were snakes, a caged lion and leopard, and a leashed tiger cub that walked around during the party. " At the party, you really feel like you ' re in the jungle. You can ' t see the house at all. My date had never seen anything like it, " Lance Mcln- nes, finance senior, said. Pledges worked about four hours a day tor the six days prior to the event, which was held outside. Three senior actives were responsible for design and overall supervision. The pledges also had help from actives who were already familiar with the building process. An SAE pledge, Judd Lowe, liberal arts fresh- man, said, " We saw pictures of what it was supposed to look like and knew it ' d be a lot of work. It was very rewarding because it looked good and the party was great. We all had a lot of fun building it. Pledges were given the task of finding the needed materials for the jungle. They rented and borrowed equipment, and Austin residents al- lowed the SAEs to use bamboo from their own trees. Pledges saw their hard work pay off with the success ot the party, and then had a week ! tear it clown. " It was a very big undertaking, and tl pledges saw it as a challenge. They did a real good job, and we told them, " pledge trair.j Todd Greenwood, finance senior, said. In addition to hosting social events, the SA j raised money for Junior Helping Hands Austin, a home for children of broken housj holds. The money paid for clothing, food, mel ical care and house repairs. The choice of a kx| group allowed members to see the results their work. A Hold Up was planned for the fall, and t! traditional 48-hour basketball marathon in tl spring. Members hoped to reach a goal $10,000.

" Comments like these came as a result of the efforts of Sigma Chi to suppress their party image and to project a more positive image through their various charitable activities. Reilly Elementary School was targeted tor Sigma Chi ' s participation in the Austin Adopt- IS IT STRAIGHT?: Eric Dmsmorc, Mike Blalixk and Chris Dkkson admire their preparations fur the New North party Nov. 20. a-School program. This program was imple- mented and organized by pledge trainer James Shivcs, speech junior. " We sent at least five guys a day, five days a week out to Reilly, " Shives said. " We helped children in the first through third grades in various subjects like English and math. " " It was unreal how many hours they ded- icated, " said Choate. " They even came during finals. " The fraternity also donated a locking filing cabinet to provide storage for the school ' s con- fidential special education records. Money to purchase the filing cabinet was obtained from the proceeds of a basketball tournament in late October. The tournament was open to members of all fraternities and required a $3 entry fee. To show their appreciation and thanks I Sigma Chi ' s help and dedication, the stucler made Christmas decorations for the fraternip winter formal Dec. 5.

SIGMA NU Renovation projeci results in ' Nu ' house The members of Sigma Nu had a busy fall. After putting in an entire se- mester of inconvenience and hard work, the members finally had something to show for it a brand new fraternity house. The original Sigma Nu house was construct- ed in 1952 and was desperately in need of major repairs. The $400,000 house renovation project finally began during mid-summer 1987 and was completed by the end of the fall semester. Renovation of the house required that it be completely demolished down to the studs and two-by-fours it was made of, and everything was replaced. Funding for the massive repair job came mainly from Sigma Nu alumni. Members con- ducted a type of telemarketing operation with the alumni to gain large amounts of monetary support. " Between about $80,000 and $100,000 was pledged by alumni members, " President Victor Longo, finance junior, said. Alumni played an important role in the ren- ovation by contributing not only money, but also their business talents. Alumni lawyers do- nated their services to manage the paperwork, an alum banker negotiated the best terms pos- OFF1CERS: FRONT ROW: Kevin Jamei Kebodeaux. Jeffrey Grant Pass- mote.

Rush Captain David Pratt, accounting junior, said, " We had amazing alumni support. We couldn ' t have done it without them. " The Sigma Nu Mothers Club also strongly supported the project. Donations from the fami- lies included a pool table, blinds, wood paneling and tiles and some of the actual landscaping. " It was really neat to see how whole families rallied together and were included in the work, " Pratt said. Due to the construction, most of the se mester ' s activities were conducted in a separat study hall.

[The evening began as an ordinary night on town, with Warner waiting for the Re- I cements to start playing at Liberty Lunch. Iwever, it was the opening act, The Way Its, that caught his attention. They were a hell of a lot better than the placements, they just blew them away. If they II not played, the night would have been a llCERS: Hud Strain Ln disappointment. I paid $9 and expected to see a show, and The Way Outs came through, " War- ner said. Warner was not the only one who appreciated the band ' s performance. As social chairman of Sigma Tau Gamma, he promptly booked the group to play at one of their parties, and the partygoers became fast fans of The Way Outs. The Eveready Party Cats party was a casual affair held Nov. 20 in the back yard of the Sig Tau house. Here the band made its party debut. " Their music is very danceable, but not top 40, " Susan Embs, accounting senior and White Rose queen, said. " They don ' t play a lot of ' Twist and Shout, ' they are more like a party version of REM, " Peter Link, rush captain, said. The band ' s unique style was so well- received, the Sig Taus created a party in order to invite the group back. The " Just Say Yes " party on Jan. 23 was built on basics alone: the band, beer and hot dogs were all the Sig Taus needed for a great time. " The Way Outs don ' t take songs from other bands, they play their own music which is better. They don ' t bring flashing lights or wear costumes or makeup, the band just comes out and plays the music. The Way Outs are a pleasing change from the norm, " Warner said. by Karen Starns Philip Drake Karl Esstnger Carlos Flores Eric Freeman Erik Harris Kevin Heineman James Hopf Donald Horsman David Kennedy Thad Leeper Peter Link Jeff Lockiear David Read John Rolater Mike Shepard Steve Warner Greg Warner Sigma Tau Gamma 511 SIGMA PHI EPSILON Hard work, ' boo run produce night in Dixi Taking part in a long-standing UT tradition, Sigma Phi Epsilon turned Dad ' s Day weekend into a three-day extrav- aganza. The Sig Eps filled Nov. 13-15 with events that enabled parents to catch up on their sons ' activities and get to know other members. The weekend kicked off with the formal Red Garter Party. The setting of this black-tie oc- casion, which attracted over 1,000 guests, was constructed to provide the illusion of New Or- leans ' French Quarter. " Basically, we just made the whole back yard into a lake, " President Matt Mitchell, mar- keting junior, said. " The pledges constructed a platform with two piers extending out from it that people could walk out onto. In the middle we had a floating paddleboat bar. " " It took the whole pledge class approximately three weeks to build the decorations, " Red Garter Chairman Greg Smotherman, business junior, said. " It also gave the pledges a chance to show the actives what they could do. " Guests were entertained by the sounds of Dixie Land jazz as well as progressive rock on the two dance floors. To provide acoustics for the party, members surrounded the dance floors and oyster bar with bamboo donated by an Austin business and a few Austin residents. Gathering the bamboo was a tradtional task which earned the name ' " boo runs " . " We helped paint and do little things, but the best part was the ' boo runs, " Leigh Colquitt, secondary math education senior and Sig Ep little sister, said. " We made about 20 runs out to Amtrak late at night to get enough bamboo for the party. " After a late evening of partying and dancing, members arose Saturday morning to prepare for a pre-game brunch at the house. After the brunch, buses chauffeured the parents, mem- bers and dates to the Texas-TCU football game. Saturday night was open, allowing parents and sons to spend some time together. " We have so much going on all weekend that it ' s nice to have a chance to just relax and show your parents around Austin, " Mitchell said. On Sunday, the Sig Eps put on a barbeq for their parents. The president addressed t parents and told them what Sigma Phi Epsil stood for and what the fraternity expected frc each of its members. " Dad ' s Day weekend is a fun weekend. It li| the parents get better-acquainted not only wil the members of Sigma Phi Epsilon but also t| values, traditions and policies which it hold; I Mitchell said. by Cbrissi Noyd Lynn Butler Michael Carter Michael Chaiken Ike Claypool James Cowan Darren Crosbie Michael Curran 512 Sigma Phi Epsilon OFFICERS: FRONT ROW: Christopher McKee Denison, Andre C.
