The capital of the State of Texas offered its residents: 167 parks, 25 miles of hike and bike trails, the Colorado River, modern skyscrapers, historic landmarks, and a plethora of museums and theaters. But located in the heart of Austin was another " city " the University of Texas. Situated directly north of downtown, the UT Tower dominated the skyline. In the same way, the University made itself felt throughout the city, using its influence to help Austin become a technological, scien- tific and cultural center of the Southwest. Patrick Humphries 2 Local Slant Hannes Hacker 1 1, nines Hacker Patrick Humphries - lannes Hacker Carrie Dawson ne way the University kept Austin in the news was through the athletics departments. All year round Austinites came to the athletic field to support Texas, cheering the teams on to district or regional titles, and sometimes on to national tournaments. Fans exuded a spirit of pride in UT and its winning tradition. Organizations such as Bevo ' s Babes and the Disch-Falk Diamonds existed to encourage one of the athletic teams, and they consistently rallied support throughout the season. The UT spirit and pride definitely extended past the campus borders to Austin at large. Local Slant 5 Carrie Dawson U he state capital was in national news in its own right as the po- litical center of Texas. Rallies held on the capitol steps when key leg- islation was debated drew protest- ers from all over, and UT students joined right in. Off the capitol steps, an ecological issue arose when Treaty Oak, a 500-year-old landmark in downtown Austin, had been poisoned and a year- long vigil began to mark its progress or decline. The University, of course, had its own fuel for rallies. Graduate students protested a major pay cut throughout the entire year. America watched on national news as problems with racism and subsequent marches and protests flooded campus. And to top off the year, President Bush gave the commencement address. Hannes Hacker Carrie Dawson Hannes Hacker Local Slant 7 n? U he nickname UT City implied that stu- dents never need leave the campus area. Medical serv- ices, restaurants, clothing stores, bar- Carrie Dawson bers and more were all within a two-block radius of UT. The Texas Union offered movies, bowling and pool. Students also ventured off into the big- ger city. Sixth Street hosted an array of cl ubs in which much of the famous Austin music scene took place. The culmination of this club scene occured every Hallow- een as all of Austin showed up to parade down what was once Pecan Street. r Campus Cru Hannes Hacker 8 Local Slant Hannes Hacker Local Slant 9 I and in hand with the Austin music scene came the splashy creativity of the art scene. Murals appeared on any campus or downtown building with a blank wall. Renaissance Square, a courtyard on the Drag, became an open-air store for local artists vending their wares. Student life at the University was not a self-contained experience it became an Austin experience. Carrie Dawson Haunts Hacker Local Slant 11 photo by Charles T. Walbridge Independence meant different things to different people freedom of speech, freedom from political suppression, or just freedom from parents. These liberties played a special part in life at the University; with Austin being a political, cultural and academic center, students faced these and other issues daily. Students rallied together to support political issues, whether nationally or locally, and as 1 percent of Austin ' s population, they formed a powerful voting bloc. From protesting the Tiananmen Square massacre to reviving Treaty Oak, students became aware of the situations around them. Through confronting problems with roommates, registration and shuttle buses, students dealt with campus events in a public spotlight. edited by Mary Helen Huye CP 12 Student Life 10 the city ! taut tkk i iiinenulliarifc ji at school.

It ' s August and you just arrived back at school. You and your friends feel like catching a few summer rays while you still can. After all, by the middle of September it ' ll be too cold for shorts. You all pile in the car and head for the only lake within a 50-mile radius. You spread out the blankets and pass around the sunblock. Too bad it ' s so polluted or you could swim. Better to be safe than sorry, you reason. No telling what you might catch in that water. . . Hey, take it easy! For- tunately for you, this was only a fictitious scenario. If you were an Austinite, you could enjoy Travis County ' s abundant lakes and waterways seven months out of the year. From Barton Springs to Lake Travis, there was surely something for everyone. Barton Springs, a spring-fed natural swim- ming pool, was located in Zilker Park and was the size of a football field. Being so large, it drew hundreds each weekend. " Barton Springs is relaxing and enjoyable, " said Megan Moorman, government sophomore. " A real change of pace. " After taking a dip in the chilling 68 degree water, one could stretch out on the vast lawn and soak up some rays. Town Lake and Lake Austin were both within the Austin city limits. Town Lake was lined with more than fifteen miles of hike and bike trails and a public park. Swimming and motor boating were prohibited, but sailboats, canoes and electric boats were welcome. Twenty-two-mile long Lake Barton Creek Road Bridge over Barton Creek Austin began at Mansfield Dam and wandered through hous- ing developments and parks in Austin and West Lake Hills. Popular Lake Travis was home to more than 20,000 peo- ple in residential and lake communities and was a hot spot for scuba diving, sailing, waterskiing, swimming and camping. On almost any weekend, members of the UT Sailing Club enjoyed a day on the water at Lake Travis. Other relaxation-seekers preferred to stay ashore. " Going to the lake is so peaceful and restful because there aren ' t any interruptions and you can read or do whatever you want, " Amy Jennings, lib- eral arts sophomore, said. Six public parks provided room to stretch out. The new boating law may have had an effect on the attitudes of boaters. Texas Senate Bill 276, passed in spring 1989, ruled illegal the operation of a boat or similar water vehicle or device while in- toxicated. " We are preparing to strictly enforce the boat- ing safety laws this spring, " said Captain Dexter Harris, Boating Laws Admin- istrator with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. " The key to this lies in the training of our officers. We hope to be able to determine that someone is intoxicated before the accident occurs, but unfortunately that has not been the case in the past. " The administration hoped the new law would reduce the number of boating accidents in Texas. So, you see, you had rest and relaxation in your own backyard. With Barton Springs, Town Lake, Lake Austin and Lake Travis just a short drive away, who could complain? Unless you were hydrophobic, that is. . Austin on the Water 15 The Price of Picture a darkened movie screen. Fade in to a wide shot of a crowded city square. It is evening; flickering fires cast red light over the students who flee in every direction or attempt to stand their ground. Bodies lie in scattered heaps amid crushed bicycles and charred buses. At the east end of the square, tanks lumber slowly but relent- lessly toward the crowd. Fade to black. Fade in to another square, 100 days later. It is evening; the fragile glow of many candles lights the faces of stu- dents who sit silently, wearing black armbands. The three-quarter moon ' s silver light and the glaring white eyes of TV cameras give an unnatural bright- ness to the solemn scene. Sound of a high, sweet girl ' s voice singing, " Light a little candle, hold it close to your heart .... " Sound of many voices joining soft- ly in the singing. The first scene was Tiananmen Square in Beijing, where on June 4, 1989, Chinese government troops killed thousands of pro-democracy ac- tivists, mostly students, who had been protesting in the square for several weeks. The second was the West Mall, where on Tuesday, Sept. 12, 1989, both Chinese and American students, faculty members and Austinites gathered for a Candlelight Vigil meant, organizers said, to keep June 4 ' s events from fad- ing out of memory. " The 100th day for me is like an anniversary, " Ying Tang, public affairs graduate student, said earlier Tuesday at a West Mall rally. " I think we want to bring some reminiscence to campus, to bring the memory back. " Tang was a member of the Associ- ation for Freedom and Democracy in China, formed in summer 1989 imme- diately after Tiananmen Square. " When the massacre occurred, a story by Robin Mayhall photos by Hannes Hacker and John David Phelps group of Chinese students gathered to- gether on this campus to talk about what they could do to express their an- ger, " AFDC member Pat Wong, pro- fessor of public affairs and a Tiananmen Week organizer, said. The success of the group ' s July 2 sym- posium generated the idea for a me- morial on the 100-day anniversary of the Tiananmen Square killings, as the 100th day is a traditional day of re- membrance in China. As members came up with more and more ideas, the proposed one-day event grew into a week filled with lectures, rallies and benefit concerts, Wong said. Former U.S. House Speaker Jim Wright and Ruan Ming, former Chi- nese Communist party official, spoke at the Monday opening ceremony. Tues- day, the actual 100th day after Tiananmen Square, was marked by sev- eral events, including a rally, the Can- dlelight Vigil and a memorial rock con- cert in the Texas Union Ballroom. The noon rally on the West Mall drew both interested Chinese and American stu- dents and passersby. Lisa Ayala, a broadcast journalism senior who stopped to listen to a speak- er as she was walking by, said she was interested because she had followed the summer ' s events in China. " When the massacre in Tiananmen Square and in Beijing started, I was pretty much glued to the TV set, " Ayala said. " I think most of America was interested, as well as the Chinese students. I think it ' s something that cer- tainly won ' t be forgotten soon. " Wong said the interest displayed by non-Chinese students was an encour- aging result of the week. " I was very encouraged by the number of Amer- ican students who showed up, " he said. In addition, Chinese students from three traditionally disparate areas Taiwan, Hong Kong and mainland Chi- na worked together for the first time in organizing the event, Wong said. On Saturday, the group held a ben- efit classical concert in Bates Recital Hall. Chinese musicians, some of whose names and backgrounds were withheld to protect their families in China, per- formed both Western and Chinese vo- cal and instrumental pieces. Lin Zongti, who was chief musician with the Beijing Opera for 20 years, received a standing ovation for his passionate performance of the Chinese folk song Lantern Fes- tival on the banhu, a two-stringed fid- dle. Throughout the week, students could examine an exhibit outside the Flawn Academic Center. Pictures from Tiananmen Square, transcribed eyewit- ness accounts and stories from various newspapers worldwide were mounted on large stands. Visitors viewed the ex- hibit and left their own comments on a poster board provided at the end. Wong said he believed Tiananmen Week was a success. " I was really happy with the outcome. " In addition, the week when con- sidered along with similar memorials worldwide could have an influence beyond just reminding UT students of June 4 ' s events. " When you look at the entire picture, when you look at what happened all over the world on Sept. 12, it sends a very strong signal to the Chinese gov- ernment, " Wong said. " I think we are in this for the long haul. Nobody ex- pects China to be transformed into a democratic nation tomorrow. I think we are looking at a 20- to 30-year ex- perience here. People need to be con- cerned about this because . . . human rights and human dignity are the con- cerns of humanity. " Wong said the Association for Free- dom and Democracy in China plans to hold other events to promote awareness and support of the pro-democracy movement among both Chinese and American students. As the speaker who ended Tuesday ' s lOOth-day rally said, " The only way to remember them is to fight on. The only way to live is to be free.

Her victory represented the downfall of a regime the U.S. had opposed for years through funding for the contras. Chamorro, shown here campaigning in Managua, was elected fairly, ac- cording to international observers that included former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

They awoke in the afternoon and be- gan their shifts at sundown. They worked all night long, until bedtime at first light. This routine may remind one of po- lice officers on a graveyard beat or stu- dents studying for final exams, but in fact it occurred far away from the bright lights of Austin. It was a typical night ' s work for astronomers at McDonald Observatory. The professors and students who came and went at the West Texas site were housed at the transient quarters. This facility served as a place to sleep and eat during ob- serving runs that could last days or even weeks. Because of the night schedule, sleeping and eating patterns were re- versed, with dinner often being the first meal of the day. " I usually get up at two and then have a bowl of cereal, and that does me till dinner, " Scott Kleinman, graduate student in astronomy, said. After dinner, the telescope domes were opened an hour before twilight in order to equalize the interior and ex- terior temperatures. If a dome ' s inte- rior were warmer than its exterior, ris- ing air could adversely affect observation quality. After calibration, astronomers spent the rest of the night collecting data. If it was too cloudy, they would wait until morning if necessary for the skies to clear. Telescope time at the observa- tory had to be reserved three to four months in advance, so astronomers used every available moment until dawn. Dedicated on May 5, 1939, McDonald Observatory had served as a leading center of astronomy research for fifty years. The observatory was built on a bequest from prosperous Par- is, Texas, banker and amateur scientist " It ' s easy to be a good astronomy teacher, because all of us are very evangelistic about astronomy. We all love it, and we all want to convey our love of it to other people. " Frank Bash, director William Johnson McDonald. The West Texas site had a number of features which endeared it to the orig- inal builders. Harlan Smith, professor of astronomy, who completed a 26-year tenure as director of the observatory in August, 1989, said, " McDonald has vir- tually everything you would want in an outstanding telescope site. " A number of factors contributed to the observatory ' s excellent viewing con- ditions. First, the cloudless skies over the Davis Mountains allowed viewing on about two-thirds of the nights during the year. The calm air that typified the weather at the obser- vatory meant that light from distant stars was distorted very little by atmos- pheric turbulence, a condition astrono- mers referred to as " good seeing. " The site ' s 6,800- foot altitude kept the telescopes above most of the obscuring atmosphere, and the relative remoteness of the location ensured that the skies were not illu- minated by city lights. This problem, called " light pollution " by astronomers, plagued most U.S. observatories due to encroaching cities. Lastly, the observa- tory ' s latitude allowed for viewing of most of the southern sky. The list of instruments atop Mount Locke near Fort Davis included 107-, 82-, 36- and 30-inch optical telescopes. The size of a telescope determined how much light astronomers could gather. Smith used the analogy of people in the desert making a rain collection of a poncho. " The bigger the poncho they can spread out to catch the raindrops and funnel the water down through a hole in the bottom to a bucket, the more water they collect, " Smith said. Sim- ilarly, the larger telescopes were able to detect more of the photons arriving from space. story and photos by Hannes Hacker TAKE A CLOSER LOOK: Scot Kleinman, grad- uate student in astronomy, makes an adjustment on the 36-inch telescope.

The Spectroscopic Survey Tele- scope would combine 85 smaller mirrors to produce a total mirror diameter of ten meters, becoming one of the three largest telescopes in the world. It was designed specifically for spectroscopy, the science of analyzing light spectra. Optical astronomy was not the only area of interest at the observatory. " [McDonald] includes much more than that mountain in West Texas, " Frank Bash, new director of the Observatory and professor of astronomy, said. A millimeter wave telescope used to measure radio radiation not visible to the human eye and laser ranging equipment used to measure the distance to the moon to within inches were also included on the mountain. In partnership with the California Institute of Technology, University radio astronomers also op- erated a radio telescope in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. They previously had access to the two-mile radio telescope 40 miles south of Mount Locke in Marfa until it was dismantled later in the year. The astronomers ' work consisted of more than simply gazing though telescopes. Teaching played an important role in the Department of Astronomy, which served more than 6,000 students a year. Bash estimated that he had taught astronomy, mainly freshman level, to between 5,000 and 10,000 stu- dents since his arrival at the University in 1967. The observatory also was accessable to the public, hosting about 100,000 visitors a year. With the ex- ception of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year ' s Day, the W.L. Moody Visitors ' Information Center conducted tours every day of the year. In addition, the observatory hosted regular solar viewings and star parties. The only event at the observatory for which ad- mission was charged was the monthly public veiwing night at the 107-inch telescope. McDonald was the only observatory in the world to open its largest telescope to the public. The astronomers on Mount Locke contemplated such things as the age and size of the universe, and they relished the prospect of public interest in their work. Bash summed up the attitude best. " It ' s easy to be a good astronomy teacher, because all of us are very evangelistic about astronomy. We all love it, and we all want to convey our love of it to other people, " Bash said.

McDonald Observatory 23 Capitol It Wort No more yellow dogs for this university! Capitol Metro ' s high-tech buses in 1989 replaced the older Laidlaw school buses, causing mixed emotions on campus. Fall 1989 began the contract signed between the Uni- versity and Capitol Metro for shuttle bus services. The mass-transit buses were larger, air-conditioned and be- lieved to be more effective people-movers, badly needed for the growing number of students who required the shuttle services. However, the new service had disadvantages as well. The University signed a five-year contract and paid Cap- ital Metro $3.2 million a year or $32.84 per student in student services fees. Many students protested the fees since Capital Metro waived city bus fares through 1990, making UT students the only Austin residents paying for bus service. Students sought City Council support and attended meetings with Capital Metro in an effort to have the money refunded. Their efforts to get a full or partial refund from Capitol Metro continued into the spring semester. While the UT Shuttle Bus Committee claimed that Metro ' s free rid- ership program left students footing the bill for the entire transit system, Metro claimed that students were paying for all-student routes such as West Campus and 40-Acres. As for the quality of the Metro service, student reactions were mixed. RUSH HOUR: The noon crowd gathers to board the West Campus bus in front of the PCL. This was a peak time for the shuttles as some students went home to lunch and others arrived for their first classes. 24 Shuttle Buses ' --Metro ' s udla school etro: Is the Wait? The new busses came equipped with stop indicator cords and air-conditioning, and they had an increased rider capacity compared to the older models, allowing for more passengers to be accommodated comfortably. Although most students claimed that there was less seating room than in the Laidlaw busses, there was more room to stand. " Sure the buses are larger, but they ' re still overcrowd- ed; they need to provide more busses, " Christine Gerheart, computer science sophomore, said. Regardless of the day of the week, bus aisles were usually jammed full of people. One had to be quick to grab a seat. Students often filled the bus stairwell past capacity so that the doors literally seemed to be close to bursting. Gene Souza, a West Campus bus driver, said that on one par- ticular day his bus was so overloaded with students that one girl was injured when she fell out of the rear side door. The accident was not serious, but Souza was quite con- cerned about the safety of his riders. By spring, the controversy still had not been resolved. And as the financial disputes threatened to linger well into summer and even the next fall, once again the students were left waiting on Capitol Metro. story and photos by Carrie Dawson RED LIGHT: Waiting for the light to change, bus driver Gene Souza talks with weary West Campus riders. Shuttle Buses 25 Under Construction Why do people have face-lifts? Is it because they are getting uglier, or do they just want to become more attractive for their peers? Whatever the case, Dobie Center was an aging structure that needed a face-lift, although some residents ' lives were disrupted in the process. Most agreed that the construction was needed to maintain the building ' s integrity. " Dobie needed repairs because the bricks were cracking and pulling away from the building, " resident director Lance King, pharmacy junior, said. " There were things throughout the whole process that could have been done better. " Construction started in spring 1989 and persisted through the summer and well into the fall semester. " Construction was irritating because it hampered the studying atmos- phere, " Tom Stilwell, economics pre-law junior, said. " The dorm life was still normal, though. We had parties and plenty of opportunities to meet people. " Controversy arose during the construction. Students living in Dobie during the spring 1989 semester filed a lawsuit claiming that the construction unduly restricted their use of Dobie ' s facilities. Others claimed that they were exposed to the allegedly toxic chemical Sarabond. " I would really like to know more about this chemical, since I have to live here, " story by Jim Cinocca photos by George Bridge Craig Meyer, pre-med biology freshm Articles about construction problem local newspapers almost every day. things were handled poorly, Dobie undue bad publicity, " King said.

Dobie Construction 27 PQ or A Seasons An explosion of style, texture and color paraded down the runway: green mohair, fuchsia dresses, black crepe, antique satin and sky blue jackets were just a few of the clothing varieties modeled at the Student Designer Show- case ' 89 Fashion Show. Held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Nov. 1, the show was sponsored by the Texas Food and Fibers Commission, the UT Fashion Group and the Division of Textiles and Cloth- ing at the University of Texas at Austin. The annual show, run by students, gave hands-on train- ing and design experience to those who hoped to enter the fashion industry. " It ' s a trial run, much like the real world. It gave us valuable experience, " Cathi Riggs, fashion de- sign senior, said. The designers not only created their own outfits, but they also sewed their own creations, and some even pro- duced their own fabric. After the show, most students kept their works for a portfolio to use in the future. The show included clothes for all occasions and seasons. There was both summer and fall apparel, wedding dresses, formals, suits, jackets and jumpsuits. Floor-length dresses and skirts were predominant in the collection of 58 items. Velvet, mohair and rayon in shades of black, white and blue were popular combinations. The award for favorite garment of the show was given by judges to Sara Jones, fashion design senior, for her full- length mohair coat with a black braid design. " It was the first show I had a lot of garments in, and the first coat I ever made. I expected to do well, but there was a lot of competition, " Jones said. Gerardo Cantu, textile clothing senior, won designer of the year, the highest award a fashion student can achieve. Behind the scenes, the production staff kept the show running. " We kept everything together, helped with the setup, and also helped people find their seats, " Kristin Ellington, fashion design sophomore, said. " It was hectic, but it was fun. " With more than 300 people in attendance, the showcase was a success with both designer participation and public turnout. All participants in the show were given the op- portunity to work in an atmosphere that was like that of professionals.

UT Fashion Show 29 TREATY OAK The Poisoning of a Landmark story by Elizabeth DeWitt LJ photos by George Bridges Over five hundred years old. A na- tional landmark. Pictured in the Hall of Fame of Forestry in Washington, D.C. Called the most perfect tree in North America at one time. Its name was de- rived from the legend that Stephen F. Austin signed the first treaty in the state between white men and indians beneath its 120-foot canopy. Austin ' s Treaty Oak. In May, 1989, it was discovered that the tree had been poisoned with Velpar, an herbicide manufactured by DuPont. The act was rumored to be part of a cult ritual. The poisoner was still at large. The tree might die. This was the sad news Austinites received during the summer of 1989. Sad but true, someone had wanted to kill the famous Treaty Oak and may have succeeded. We didn ' t know. It was estimated that a gallon of Velpar was poured around the base of the tree, several times the amount needed to kill it. Top priority was given to saving the sacred tree. A task force of national and Texas experts assem- bled and recommended above-ground treatment to reduce the stress of pro- ducing new leaves. An above-ground irrigation system was installed to spray the tree daily and a dark 55-foot screen was erected around the tree to reduce heat stress. The poisoned soil was removed PRESS CONFERENCE: The Austin Police Department an- nounces the arrest of a suspect in the poisoning of the Treaty Oak while behind them a crew works to remove the poison. and replaced. No one could guarantee that the tree would live. The community became concerned. Cards, poems, flowers and various oth- er get-well gifts were placed in front of the helpless tree. Psychics visited and prayer vigils were performed. DuPont officials offered a $10,000 reward for the conviction of the person or persons guilty of the poisoning. Some felt the issue was blown out of proportion. Alyce Adams, government sophomore, said, " I drove by it every day on the way to work. Hardly anyone knew it existed until this happened. All of a sudden, everyone was out there taking pictures, chanting, and reading its vibes. Once there was a tour bus in front of me driving by Treaty Oak filled with peo- ple taking pictures of it. " A suspect was found. He was 46-year old Paul Stedman Cullen, who worked in a nearby feed store and read occult books with fervor. The poisoning may have been one of his rituals. Before he could be charged with a crime, the tree had to be appraised. Since the ap- praised value came out to more than $20,000, the suspect was charged with felony criminal mischief. " He had no right to poison that tree. It ' s a part of our history and our com- munity. I think he deserves punishment for what he did, " Shannon Maxwell, liberal arts freshman, said. The jury in Cullen ' s May trial agreed, finding him guilty and sentencing him to nine years in prison with a $1,000 fine. Community reaction was mixed, as the crime allowed for a sentence of up to life in prison. Because Cullen had been in jail since June 29, 1989, he could expect parole in just a few months. In the meantime, about two-thirds of Treaty Oak was declared dead. 30 Treaty Oak AT THE ROOTS: A worker digs out soil from under the Treaty Oak in hopes of re- moving the majority of the poison. Treaty Oak 31 of Austin ' s Eateries story by Catherine Schlech photos by Kirk J. Crippens From small, dimly-lit Mexican cafes to elaborate steak houses, Austin of- fered a wide range of restaurants local hangouts where UT students gath- ered to feast. Social aspects were often more important than entrees; atmos- phere sometimes mattered more than cuisine. A favorite Mexican establishment was Jalisco Bar. Located on Barton Springs Road, this restaurant featured slam- mers, large shots of tequila which the waiter or waitress would slam on the table after first drawing attention with a loud shout. As everyone else watched, the customer would drink the the shot in one gulp. " Jalisco is a cool " place. The food is . . . OU good, especially the chicken It fajitas. It has awe- some mixed UJVtAof drinks and an in- teresting mariachi band. All in all, it ' s well worth the long wait, " Herb Schreib, psychology sophomore, said. Another student-frequented Mexican restaurant was Chuy ' s. " It has weird, fluorescent fish hanging all over the place. It winds up being a fun atmos- phere to eat great food, " said Terri Titus, physical therapy sophomore. Another restaurant noted for its sce- nery was the Magic Time Machine. Pa- trons could choose the setting i n which they ate, from Cinderella ' s pumpkin to Noah ' s ark to a simple hut. Anthony Speca, physics astronomy freshman, described the Magic Time Machine as " a delicious exercise in the anachronistically surreal. " Mike Har- ren, natural science freshman, said, " I thought it was silly with all the wait- resses in outfits, but the shrimp was good, so I ' ll give it credit. " Captain Quackenbush ' s Espresso Cafe on Guadalupe also enticed Long- horns to come drink coffee and eat bagels. " I go to Quackenbush ' s to get cappuccino because I drank it all the time when I was in Europe, and Quack- enbush ' s is the only place I can get it for a dollar. All other places it costs $2.50, " said Cassandra Ring, Spanish senior. If students were in the mood for a flame-broiled bur- ger, Player ' s on Martin Luther King Boulevard would well suit " their needs. Play- er ' s stayed open until 4:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, providing an op- portunity to catch a midnight snack or early morning meal. " It is a great place to wind down at 2 o ' clock in the morning after partying on Sixth Street, chasing women and having fun, " Mark Scott, computer sci- ence freshman, said. Restaurants satisfied the need both to eat and to socialize. Dining with friends, meeting people at happy hour or en- joying romantic dinner dates, UT stu- dents preferred restaurants with special scenes as well as delicious food, and nowhere but in Austin could they find such a variety. 32 Austin Restaurants p V " Ait fe- ;..

Austin Restaurants 33 Psyches for Sale " They put me in an arm chair, strapped an electrode to my arm, and turned up the voltage on the shock unit until it felt uncomfortable and hurt, " Ellen Hines, music junior, said about her experience with a Psychology 301 experiment her freshman year. " The experimenter turned out the lights in the room, and then flashed slides of mushrooms, flowers and men stabbing each other on a screen. After each slide one of three things happened: nothing, a loud beep or a shock. The researcher stopped flashing slides on the screen, and asked me if there was any corre- lation between the shocks and the slides. I said that there wasn ' t a cor- relation, and I was right. " Students from all over campus had similar stories of their experiences in Psychology 301. During the fall semes- ter each Psychology 301 student was required to spend 4 hours doing actual research studies for the Department of Psychology and 5 hours during the spring semester. Each student had to fulfill these requirements in order to get credit for the class. Sandy Clark, research coordinator for the department, estimated that the total number of student Psychology 301 hours for fall 1989 was 12,000. With the hour requirement increase in the spring, the number rose to 24,000. Some students actually got compen- sated. " When I took Psychology 301, I participated in an experiment involving the use of money as a motivational tool. I was given some puzzles to complete, and if I correctly completed them dur- ing the alotted time, I was given about $1.25 for each puzzle, " John Klocek, psychology senior, said. Other experiments dealt with the emotional characteristics of their sub- jects. Gwen Enstam, English French senior, participated in an experiment testing leadership abilities. " I played a board-type game against an imaginary computer, and the experimenter recorded my responses to the comput- er ' s actions. When the computer did one thing, the experimenter recorded story by Kenton Dee Johnson photos by John David Phelps whether I acted aggressively and tried to win, or retreated and let the com- puter win. " Another experiment involved the re- lationship and compatibility of room- mates. Richard Calderon, music junior, and his roommate answered about 250 questions about each other ' s habits, and whether or not those habits were really bothersome. " We answered questions like ' How much time do you and your roommate spend together? ' and ' Does your roommate snore at night? ' " Calderon said. The Department of Psychology also ran some experiments on such current hot topics as AIDS, rape and racism. " Each student read a story about a char- acter that got stuck in a dead-end job. The main character ' s race and sex were the only variables in the experiment that changed, and depending on the race and sex of the student reading the story the results were interesting. They indicated that people went out of their way to show that they were not racist at all. Blacks and women were rated sig- nificantly higher than white males by the majority of participants, " Julie Be- lasco, psychology senior, said. Students also participated in exper- iments outside of the University. Pharmaco Dynamics Research Inc. hired many UT students to participate in testing for drug manufacturers. The testing was part of the procedure used by the Food and Drug Administration to determine whether or not a new drug could be distributed in the U.S. over-the-counter market. Sean Parker, French senior, participated in a 12-day experiment testing a anti-depressant drug already distributed all over Eu- rope. For this experiment he spent the entire time at Pharmaco, a fully-housed facility with separate sleeping quarters, cafeteria and recreation room. " They gave us one dose every six days, and took various blood samples over the next six days to find out the rate at which the drug entered the blood stream. After the experiment was over, I received $1200 in the mail two weeks later. ... I get my homework done, get paid for watching TV, and don ' t have to work for the rest of the semester. It ' s great, " Parker said.

She had no in- terest in shooting until her husband introduced her to the sport, but she quickly became a force to be reckoned with on the range. 36 Black Powder Shooting Black powder shooters came from all walks of life; but when it came to a match, they were all ... BIG SHOTS You had to be tough for this sport. On a Thursday night in February a cold norther was rocking the trailer. Luck- ily, Norman and Linda Williams were comfortable inside; they had brought their heater. They had driven out to Brady, Texas, for a black powder shooting contest. In this old-fashioned way of shooting, every single bullet had to be stuffed down the barrel with precision a lot of work for one shot. The Williamses had enjoyed muzzle loading competi- tions for years. What was it that made anybody give up a cozy weekend near the fireplace in order to go into the wilderness, where the wind blows so cold that you can hardly get a grip on the rifles, ear- blasting noises shake every bone and the pungent smoke gets in your eyes and nose continuously? " I love it, " Linda said with convic- tion, pointing out the good fellowship of her mostly male competitors. Linda and Norman worked for the UT College of Engineering. Norman, a technical staff assistant in the Depart- ment of Mechanical Engineering, was an acknowledged " technical wizard, " and Linda had worked as an admin- istrative officer for the Dean of En- gineering for more than 20 years. Sitting around the tiny breakfast ta- ble in the trailer with a cup of tea, Linda told her " first time " story. " Guns really didn ' t mean anything to me, " she said. " But then Norman took me to the range one day. I remember the black powder got all over my sleeve and on my nose. But I got to like it because I ' m competitive by nature. " Linda ' s ability became apparent when Norman listed the trophies she had won. " She is in the Powder Hall of Fame, won the Shooter of the Year Award and shot the best score in three consecutive matches. Not even the men could ac- complish that, " Norman said. No more time to talk. There was work to be done. Norman wanted to place some 200 shots that weekend. That didn ' t seem too hard; what was the hurry? Actually, the Williamses couldn ' t hurry too much. Loading a black powder rifle was a science that took patience. Also, knowing technical details about flintlocks, percussion locks or wheel- locks demanded the effort of one who took it seriously. And serious they were, especially about safety, because black powder was explosive. " Rule number one is never leave your powder can open, " Mel Weaver, range officer, said. " And absolutely no smoking on the firing line. " He didn ' t tolerate violation of the rules or fooling around. Former UT photojournalism instruc- tor Russ Young had come all the way from New Mexico especially for the event. He went about fixing posole and beans, a New Mexican dish that he brought deep frozen, on a gas burner. " I like black powder shooting be- cause these are the best people I have ever been around in my life, " he said. There were many reasons to join the black powder people, Norman, Linda and Russ agreed. Having a good pas- time, learning some old crafts such as woodworking or blacksmithing, catch- ing up on history, having fun in a group, enjoying competition and being out in the countryside were just a few. But first and foremost, the shooters ex- perienced a sense of extended family. " When I was sick, actually it was for life or death, " Norman said. " People all over the state wanted to know how I was doing. " Perhaps one of the secrets of the at- traction in the exotic sport of black powder shooting was that everybody was equal. The shooters cast off their social roles and slipped into buckskins. Some were rich, some were famous, most were not, but at a shooting match they all felt special. " They treat me royally, " Linda said. She was handicapped because she had polio as a teenager. She shot from a wheelchair, but on the range she was better than the men. story and photos by Annelies Schlickenreider Black Powder Shooting 37 t k m i - WALKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND: The American students walk from building to building while touring a monastery in downtown Moscow.

" 38 Texas-Soviet Exchange im SPRING BREAK ON ICE story and photos by Donita Lynn Robinson Spring 1990 marked the secon d year that the University participated in a student cul- tural exchange with the State University of Irkutsk in the Soviet Union. Sponsored by the Texas-Soviet Exchange Council, the UT delegation consisted of 14 students and two faculty. 9 March, Friday Overnight stay in Helsinki. I lost my gloves. 1 1 March, Sunday Moscow Some of us rode the subway system for the first time. The Metro is laid out in a radial plan there is a circle line en- compassing the inner city area, then other lines crossing it like spokes on a wheel. Roughly. There are 141 stops, all with long Russian names. No matter how they ' re laid out, it ' ll be confusing, in my opinion. The Kremlin wasn ' t open today because the Congress was in session. 12 March, Monday Moscow Most of us went to the Arbat today, an old Moscow street which has been sectioned off into a pedestrian way. The old buildings were beautiful. Small shops and street vendors lined the street. The mist of half rain, half snow really added to the atmosphere of the famous district. One popular item the vendors offered was the matrioshka doll the Russian folk art doll within a doll within a doll. Hot off the presses were Gorbachev matrioshka Gorby on the outside, complete with birthmark, then Brezhnev, Khrus- chev, Stalin, and finally Lenin at the heart. The doll sold for approximately 300 Rubles, but most vendors would cut you a deal at $25. At the formal exchange rate, $25 equaled 150 Rubles; on the black market, it could be as much as 400. 13 March, Tuesday Moscow We were in the airport, ready to go through passport control to the airplane, and what happens? Marisa doesn ' t have her passport the hotel registration in Moscow still had ill There was no time to go back and get it, as the hotel was 90 minutes away and our night only 20. Out comes her UT ID and presto! it was enought to let her through. Those orange and white cards really are good for some- thing don ' t leave home without it. 14 March, Wednesday Irkutsk Last night we arrived in Irkutsk after a seven-hour flight across five time zones. All the Soviet students who would be coming to Austin in April were gathered at the airport to meet us. They were all very friendly and learned our names much quicker than we learned theirs. The next morning we had a tour of Irkutsk. One of our stops was the Znamyenski Monastery, which housed a functioning Orthodox church. Outside were the usual famous graves. But inside the church was gold and red, the walls covered with icons. A small, bent old lady was moving from one painting to the next, kissing it and crossing herself. We found out the hard way that it was rude to hide your hands in gloves or pockets while in the church. After lunch we went to the university, where the rector formally welcomed us to Irkutsk. Each of us received a book on Irkutsk and a souvenir key to the city. Rita, one of the Soviets, arrived late because she had gone before a committee to join the Communist party. She was accepted, the only student of their group who was a party mem- ber. When I asked her why she joined, she only said that she wanted to help in the nomination process. Later some of us went to Lisa ' s house for tea, where, as always, we were shown hospitality at its best. Her family was the opposite of the " Soviet stereotype " - they had two color TVs, two VCRs and a video camera. These weren ' t Soviet products, but Sony and Magnavox. How do Soviet families obtain such things? Through Western connections. 17 March, Saturday - Baikal This morning we started the trek to Baikal. We actually drove to a very small town on the edge of Baikal, then wait- ed around for our " other transportation. " That turned out to be a Toyota van and an army van. We started our drive down the loading dock, onto the wa- ter ice, rather. The ice was about two meters thick; we wern ' t afraid of breaking ice, but we were afraid when the drivers went 50-70 miles per hour, fishtailing and bumping all the way. Yankees have always said that we Texans don ' t know how to drive on ice. The cabins we stayed in were toasty near the wood stove, and cold by the windows. Snow sur- rounded us a foot or more thick. The outhouse there was no plumbing was a very cold two- minute trek in the snow. Yet another dubious addition was the fish soup served at dinner either a tail, mid portion, or head was in every bowl. It was hard to eat soup that stared back at you. In spite of all this, we had a good time. Snowball fights were inevitable, and the sleigh rides were exhilarating. Just walking on the ice of the lake was memorable the water was so clear that you could theoretically see to the bottom only there wasn ' t any light there to see by. 19 March, Monday Irkutsk and Angarsk Oleg first distinguished himself in our eyes by being the first Soviet vegetarian we met. He was actually the only one we met, as vegetarians were practically unheard of in the U.S.S.R. This afternoon Oleg invited Tina and me to his parents ' apartment in Angarsk, a town outside of Irkutsk. The trip was pretty hush-hush, as are most illegal things. Angarsk was a town " closed " to tourists it was evidently located near a factory, supply store or something else that the state didn ' t want foreigners to be seeing. Oleg was showing us his English books, when I noticed a bright red Bible on the table. It be- longed to Dan, an American student studying in Irkutsk for a year. Oleg wanted to get both an English and a Russian Bible in Texas. Although Bibles were tolerated now, as well as practicing churches, Christians seemed to be few and far between in the U.S.S.R. In light of the fact that all the students hosting us were atheists, Oleg ' s in- terest in the Bible was exceptional. 21 March, Wednesday Irkutsk After lunch Chris Bell and I went shopping with Oleg and Scott, another American at the university. We bought five-foot laminated maps of the Soviet Union for 30 cents, books for 50 cents and post- ers for five to ten cents. We decided to get some ice cream, which was always extraordinarily creamy and delicious. We went to a cooperative cafe right as it opened, and in spite of a throng of people, we were lucky enough to get a seat with- out waiting. Cooperatives were more expensive than state-run restaurants and stores, but they were very popular. Tony told us once that many Soviets had sizeable cash reserves, simply because there wasn ' t much to spend the money on. 23 March, Friday Bratsk Even though earlier in the week we unanimously voted not to go to Bratsk, a city north of Irkutsk, we were overruled. It wasn ' t that we didn ' t want to go as much as it was that we would rather stay in Irkutsk or go to Moscow. We arrived yesterday and went straight to the hotel. Today we went to the main at- traction, the world ' s second largest hydroelectric station in other words, we saw a dam. Next we went to our second wooden archi- tecture museum. This was actually very inter- esting, as there were many examples of bark and skin teepee-like structures of a historically no- madic people indigenous to the area. It was un- canny how much like American Indians their culture was, until we realized that American In- dians probably came from what is now the U.S.S.R. Finally we looked at an Olympic-training bob- sled run. No one was even using it. We then went to the airport, three hours before our flight would leave. It was too bad that we couldn ' t have just stayed in Irkutsk with our friends. 24 March Irkutsk and Moscow We ate our breakfast and said our goodbyes at the airport. Even though we would be seeing most of the students in three weeks when they came to Aus- tin, the goodbyes took an awfully long time. 25 March, Sunday Moscow After a day of the Kremlin and the Puskin Museum, we gathered at the hotel for dinner. Our host Alexander, one of the professors from Irkutsk, bought champagne and toasted us, the exchange and our nations. We did the same in turn they really were ex- tremely hospitable and generous. We have a lot to match up to when they come to Austin as our Texas-Soviet Exchange 39 DOWN THE DRAG The infamous Drag what would stu- dents do without it? The Drag provided supplies for classes, cl othes for parties, food for hunger pangs and the late-night munchies. The variety of businesses along Guadalupe welcomed the students who graced their doorways. For music lovers there was the Sound Exchange and Hastings. The Sound Ex- change, a small shop on the corner of 2 1 st and Guadalupe, allowed old heavy metal fanatics to sell their Anthrax tapes and buy used Bob Marley albums. " The Sound Exchange has used tapes which you can buy for a lot less than the full price. My friend and I went up there and got five tapes for about five bucks each, " Liisa Rudduck, accounting fresh- man, said. The Sound Exchange offered an extra novel feature for local bands. Upon re- ceiving three dollars and three tapes of the band ' s music, the store sold the tapes to the public. Thus the store offered a va- riety of local music from the youngest punk band to Bouffant Jellyfish. The clothes stores held a major share of the market. The Gap, Yarings, the Bug- aboo and the Bazaar sent out flyers and advertised specials, thus capturing student dollars. One unique store, Dressed to Kill, sold vintage clothing. Dressed to Kill re- ceived antiques and unusual clothing from vintage wholesalers and people who brought articles in the resale. Halloween made sales rise for the Ba- zaar because they sold theatrical make-up. Manager Debbie Barela said that the uniqueness of this store was due to the care the employees took. Many items were hand-picked at market and the clothes were tried on previously to being put out on the floor. The Renaissance Square added flavor story by Catherine Schlech photos by Carrie Dawson DED PE MUST i 40 Businesses on the Drag v t I | ' to the Drag with individual vendors selling jewelry, tie-dyed dresses, beadwork, boo- merangs and pewter fiqures. These people were seen on weekends selling their wares on the middle of the Drag, especially on sunny days. An assortment of restaurants found on Guadalupe provided easy access lunches and, of course, Sunday night dinners for dorm students. Whataburger, a traditional fast food restaurant, stayed open 24 hours for all the late nighters. Quick Wok of- fered Chinese food with the ambiance of a large dragon on the wall. GM Steakhouse, noted for rude service but good food, was located farther south. Students received old-fashioned hair- cuts from Goodal Woolen barber shop and slipped quarter after quarter into games at Einstein ' s and Le Fun video ar- cades. Competition abounded among the book stores: Bevo ' s, Wallace ' s and the Co-Op. Each formulated their promotions to en- tice students at the beginning of each se- mester for textbook sales. The store ri- valry was fierce, yet rarely got really dirty. Each June, the Co-Op placed a notice in The Daily Texan summoning students to turn in all of their receipts from purchases made at the Co-Op throughout the year. The Board of Directors, composed of four students, four professors and the presi- dent, Bob Hamilton, decided the appro- DEAD POETS: The Var- sity Theater faces one of Guadalupe ' s busiest inter- sections at 24th Street.

In October, gift certificates were distributed accordingly. All three book stores also sold hard-to- get art supplies and, naturally, UT par- aphernalia. The vie for dollars was the utmost goal. While these businesses thrived, spring 1 990 threatened the existence of the Var- sity Theater. " It is 95 percent sure that Tower Records will buy out the Varsity, but the deal is not closed yet. We could be open another six months, " David Ray, the as - sistant manager of the Varsity, said. The owner of the building, Hugh Oats, wanted to sell the retail space to Tower Records. " I don ' t like it anymore than Charles Eckerman, the owner of the Var- sity business, " said Steve Wilson, manager of the Varsity. The Varsity was known for its repetoire of foreign movies and its reclining plush seats. The first attribute disappeared in 1988 when the format changed to a dollar cinema showing second-run films. And as the new decade began, the second seemed to be doomed as well. Student and tourists alike fueled the economy, yielding many a dollar to con- venience and diversity of these shops. The past year marked another niche in the personality of the Drag. Businesses on the Drag 41 The hottest town in the Southwest for discovering producing aspiring musicians and new musical trends story by Kenton Dee Johnson photos by Richard Goebel Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe " King " Carrasco, Timbuk 3, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eric Johnson and Janis Joplin were just a few of the many mu- sicians who started their careers in Austin. Joe " King " was often seen diving into the crowd at the Hole in the Wall, and Janis sang many a tune down at Threadgill ' s. With inspi- rational stories like these, it was no wonder so many Uni- versity students have started their own bands in Austin. With its dynamic mixture of musical tastes, Austin pro- vided many venues in which to get started. Some of the more popular clubs such as Pearl ' s Oyster Bar, the Broken Spoke, Liberty Lunch, Antone ' s and the Continental Club offered bands the chance to experience the immediate feedback of a live audience. With such a variety of places all over Austin to play, it was interesting to note that University student bands were mostly interested in playing on Sixth Street. Many bands on Sixth Street wrote and played their own music. Known as alternative music bands, they first had to build up a following of people that liked their music. KTSB student radio helped out by providing alternative music 24 hours a day on cable radio. As Rob Gray, a psychology senior and the bassist for Bouffant Jellyfish, said, " It ' s tough at first, but once you start seeing people really enjoy your music, it ' s worth all the work. " Typically the music was a collaboration of effort from all of the group members, with the musical idea coming first and the lyrical idea last, " Gray said. While alternative bands made up the majority of groups in Austin, cover bands dominated the scene on Sixth Street. They played the already-released music of other, typically well-known bands. Fandango and the Boys with the Noise, a cover band with an energetic horn section, played older tunes with a definite blues appeal. " Our main goal is to get popular enough [playing well- known music from other bands] to do our own originals, " Tony Mireles, a music senior and the trombone player for Fandango, said. Other bands such as Bob Popular played some of the newest " pop college dance " music released. " When you ' re just starting out, credibility is the most important thing, " B.J. Nelson, a business senior and the drummer for Bob Popular, said. 42 Austin Music Scene ' " ' -{ v Kith inspi- i Mo, Austin pro- d-Sow of the more r.lk Wen Spoke, oof dub offered rtatt feedback of a M- .w Austin to mm student bands tin : .j.rd their own ktky first had to -,;i KTSB .

You learn so much, and you get to meet all sorts of people. " Many clubs on Sixth Street, such as Maggie Mae ' s, Tou- louse and Steamboat, hosted at least one different student cover band every night. Porche and Anastasia might be playing a gig at one spot, and the Rave could be playing right across the street. Sixth Street and Austin were known as hot spots in the music industry for producing new musicians and new musical trends. The bands you could see in local clubs today could and have ended up on the cover of Rolling Stone. There wasn ' t a better place, at least in the Southwest, to get a band started and build up a loyal following than in Austin.

It ' s really scary, but she has a TV so I think I ' ll stay. " " That ' s nothing, " said a Simkins resident. " My roommate practices voo-doo much like the guy in Bull Durham. He has the faceless dolls sitting on his shelf and everything. " Roommates and their doings ranged from rude to down- right crude. Some borrowed clothes randomly, turning white shirts a lovely blue tint with their washing " expertise. " Some used shampoo without permission or packed the 3-cubic-foot refrigerator with all of their items, leaving no room for other perishables. Others played loud music or turned on every appliance early in the morning. Of course, one might also be required to deal with the slob and the snob. The slob was described by one apartment resident who said, " My roommate washes her hair in the kitchen sink, leaving long black hairs which get tangled in the drain. She never cleans the sink out, either. " The snob also reared an ugly head with a condescending glance. " My roommate always looks at me like I ' m scum. So I ' m not in a sorority or was Homecoming queen, I ' m me and that ' s all that matters, " said a Jester resident. Beyond personality disagreements, some roomies had re- ligious differences as well. One Castilian resident said her roommate performed deep trances while sitting in a dark closet; she also spoke in tongues, especially around guests. Another girl said she was sure her roommate was in a satanic cult, owning shirts reading, " Blow Satan up to Jesus ' size. " Other roommate problems were more subtle. For ex- ample, one Kinsolving resident said her roommate acted like a mother by checking the time she came in at night and unfolding the countless mysteries concerning what was more nutritious in the cafeteria line. Roommates came in all shapes, sizes and kinds. Some were boring. Some were goofy and still others smelled like mothballs and wore shower caps to bed. No one was the perfect roommate. People were different; when sharing a small domicile with another, one had to take the bad with the good and adjust to his or her living arrangements. As one apartment resident said, " I have the roommate from heaven, because he ' ll give me the last beer in the fridge. " Roommates from Hell 45 TALKING TO TEX phou The reverie of a trouble-free regis- tration is reality. No more annoy- ing bubbles to fill in, endless waits for schedules, or long add drop lines meet TEX, a new com- puter system that modernized regis- tration and helped alleviate some of the tension and confusion of the past. TEX (Telephone Enrollment eX- change) was a new computerized tele- phone system that enabled students to register, add or drop, designate classes as pass fail, choose optional fees and determine the cost of tuition and fees. Initially, students picked up their reg- istration information sheet from their designated college. Each were given a specific date to register, called an access period, and then used a set of numerical codes to punch in their schedules on a touch tone phone. Registration could be done from any location. " This system is primarily for student convenience and theoretically, it is easier because you can call from where ever you are, " Albert Meerzo, UT Registrar, said. The University joined several other Texas schools, including Texas A M and Austin Community College, in switching to registration by telephone. Michael Allen, associate registrar, told the Austin American Statesman more than 130 schools nationwide used the system since the first systems at Brigham Young and Georgia State Uni- versities more than three years ago. TEX underwent several trial runs to work out glitches in the computer. Ad- vertisements in The Daily Texan encour- aged students to call in and prac- tice using t he new system and of- fered " TEX tips " to assist them. " We learned new things on each tri- al run, made cor- rections, and changed some illustration by Charles Murray programs, " Meer- zo said. An instructional video was available to aid students. A second " test run " was offered by those UT departments offering option- al fees. An 8-foot tall push-button tele- phone set up on the West Mall was the attraction of a game in which student contestants went through the registra- tion procedure. Prizes such as free parking permits, t-shirts and drama production tickets awaited everyone completing the procedure correctly. TEX may have improved registra- tion, but not without an additional $4.00 on their student services fee to forego the cost of new equipment. " It costs a little bit more. Initially, we had to purchase expensive equipment, and there was the cost of new phone lines, " Meerzo said. Overall, most students seemed to think the extra cost was worth it. Kraig Jones, business finance junior, said, " I like knowing that you have the class or don ' t have the class immediately. The convenience of calling from home is nice, too! " Only time will determine if TEX will be an improved, effective means of reg- istration. But through the helpful, in- structional opportunities and practice trial runs to improve the system, stu- dents held a positive and hopeful image of TEX. story by Cathy Mires photo by Austin Holiday GIVE IT A PUSH: Laurie Bartos, accounting senior, tries out the new registration system via an 8-foot telephone on the West Mall. i 46 Telephone Registration ABC DEF Telephone Registration 47 Doorbell to the ost students trudged through the Main and South Malls with their heads down, backpacks weighing heavily on their shoulders and tests or papers on their minds. But at 12:45 each day, something magical happened: heads lifted, smiles appeared on faces, and the day brightened for anyone within ear- shot of the tower. For at this time each day, songs rang out from the bell tower, thanks to the University ' s carillonneur, Tom Anderson. Anderson was as much a part of the University ' s tradition as the bell tower was itself. Anderson first began playing the bells in 1952. At that time he was a music student at UT, and ringing the bells was a part time job for him. After his graduation he began working in the International Building; meanwhile, he kept his position as carillonneur. Except for the two years that the tower was closed after Charles Whitman ' s 1966 sniper attack, Anderson rang the bells for 38 years. The first set of bells was installed in the tower shortly after World War II, at an estimated cost of $100,000. The year 1987 saw the dedication of the newest set of bells for the tower. The Knicker Carillon donation, in memory of Hedwig Thusnelda Knicker, in- creased the total number of bells in the tower to 56 from the original 17. " The new bells come with a much larger keyboard than I am used to. It has two rows of hand pedals and one row of foot pedals, so now I can play five or six notes at the same time. It took some getting used to, but the sound is really worth it, " Anderson said. Anderson took great pride in his work with the bell tower. He gave oc- casional tours to local elementary school children, and was always willing to talk with UT students about the bells and their history. " Before I met Mr. Anderson, I thought that the bells were ' nice ' to hear during the day. Now, however, I can ' t help but picture him up there with his sheet music in front of him playing the bells. I can ' t forget the image of story by Teresa Simpson photos by George Bridges that kind, gentle man frantically pound- ing on those wooden keys, " Mark Sims, finance senior, said. Anderson also was a dedicated fan of the Longhorns. During football season he alternated between playing pieces of the Texas fight song and playing the opponent ' s fight song. " I always make sure that I finish with the Texas fight song. I want the Longhorns to come out on top, " Anderson said. Anderson said he believed that the bells were on campus for the students and the faculty to enjoy. He played dif- ferent countries ' national anthems on special days for those countries, and he played " Happy Birthday " whenever anyone requested the song in honor of a special person. " His playing is definitely something he and we students should be proud of. It ' s amazing how he has the ability to influence the afternoons of so many nameless students in such a great way, " Sims said. Anderson considered being the car- illonneur a great honor, and the music from the bells everyday at lunchtime proved it.

Tower Bells 49 story by Bradley Wilson photos by Richard Goebel Success: Take one While many radio-television-film majors entertained vi- sions of directing blockbuster movies like Batman, most were aware of the fact that the road to Hollywood was not smooth. Breaking into the industry was difficult, so, tired of waiting for their big break, some industrious RTF students decided to create their own luck. Former RTF students Kelly MacAluso and John Lacy and RTF senior Laura Barberena took a $5,000 budget and produced the anti-drug video Mad Minute. The video, set to a song by Austin ' s own Michael E.Johnson and the Killer Bees, cuts between the fictional story of a doomed drug dealer and actual footage of shootouts between dealers and police. MacAluso said the video ' s name came from a Vietnam War term. " It ' s that moment when you discover the buddy next to you, who was laughing and joking just a second ago, is suddenly shot dead, " he said. According to Barberena, the students took the project because they thought it " would be a good idea to try and get into the production business while we were still in school. " The three students also formed " Fade-In Productions " to help with production details like hiring extras and a crew. The video, used by the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, has also been shown on several newscasts around the nation. It was honored as one of 1989 ' s Favorite Local Music Videos by the Austin Chronicle. UT graduate Kliff Kuehl, having already experienced suc- cess with his first video, produced Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Being the Perfect College Student (But Were Afraid to Ask), a look at the problems faced by incoming college freshmen. The video followed two characters through various situations as they demonstrated the incor- rect way to handle themselves. UT drama student Greg Benson starred in the video, and the introduction was given by Ken Ober of MTV ' s Remote Control game show. Four other RTF students tackled the controversial issue of school funding. Seniors Donald Dodson, Rolando Rivas, Ka- ren Pitcavage and Diana Kaufman built their video around the Edgewood vs. Kirby decision, a case that struck down Texas ' use of property taxes to fund school districts. The video contrasted an affluent West Austin district with a poorer district to show the effect the present law had on the quality of education. Pitcavage said that although a disparity exist ed between the two districts, the video ' s makers were " not putting any schools down . . . we ' re just showing the differences in facilities. " With the many different videos produced by students, RTF majors had a chance to produce and try out their ideas before entering the work force. Not only did these students raise public awareness of college problems and current issues, but they also proved that the road to Hollywood could begin in Austin.

But did you want it spray-painted on the main building of your university campus? Amy Jennings, liberal arts sopho- more, said, " Freedom of speech? I ' m all for it! Let those officious pigs know what we think! " Even though she felt students ' opinions should be voiced, Jennings said of the graffiti, " I think it ' s a pretty immature way to get a point across. " Four overnight painting sprees oc- curred during the fall semester of 1989. The first, a call for U.S. troops to leave El Salvador, happened the night of Nov. 23. " U.S. out of El Salvador " ap- peared on the UT ROTC building ' s pillars. Peace signs were scrawled on a cannon, along with " stop killing priests and children. " Students weren ' t pleased by U.S. involvement in El Sal- vador, but others said defacing campus buildings didn ' t help to persuade any- one to protest it. " When I see graffiti, it doesn ' t even make me think about the pros and cons of the issue; it just makes me mad that someone ' s defaced a nice building, " Tina Binford, education sophomore, said. " There are a lot of less contro- versial ways to let people know what you think, like putting up a display on West Mall. " Two days later, activists hit West Campus with the same goal: to sway public opinion against U.S. aid to El Salvador. The office of The Daily Texan later received a phone call from an un- identified spokesman for the Organi- zation for the Oppressed of the Earth saying his group wanted to " cut through a blanket of hypocrisy and dis- information belched out by the corpo- rate media. " The caller said news net- works were not reporting the complete picture in El Salvador. " Stop U.S. aid to El Salvador " was sprayed on the brick facade of the headquarters of the Texas Federation of Women ' s Clubs on San Gabriel Street. " I ' m all for free speech, but when it comes to defacing public or private property, that ' s infringing on the rights of other people, and it ' s not fair to them, " Aileen Goldman, psychology senior, said. The third vandalism incident oc- curred the night of Nov. 29, just a few days before the annual Texas vs. Texas A M football game. The A M logo was found painted on five UT build- ings, on one fountain and on the Me- morial Stadium field. According to an article in The Daily Texan, it was spec- ulated by Harry Eastman, assistant UT police chief, that the painting was done by A M students. Earlier in the week, a message reading " UT 1 love " was found on a section of grass on the Texas A M campus, according to Bob Wiatt, director of the A M police depart- ment. The vandal was identified as a Texas A M student and was dealt with by A M administration. The fourth graffiti spree took place over the Christmas break, the night of Jan. 5. Seven areas on campus were Billboard on Guadalupe Street 52 Campus Graffiti !the rights " " " fair to ft | ' v l --.w ,V, epan- vandalized in a call for free speech and an end to racism. For the second time in the 1989-90 school year, the Jefferson Davis statue on the South Mall was de- faced. The slogan " Racism ends at home " was found on the base of the statue. " Free speech NOW " was writ- ten on the steps of the Main Building and the front door of the office of The Daily Texan. According to an article in The Daily Texan, Chris Clemens, group coordinator of the Campus Pro-Life Movement, said he found it ironic that a West Mall anti-abortion display was thought to have been vandalized by the same person who called for free speech. The 1989 fall semester was not the first time graffiti appeared on the UT campus, and probably not the last. Un- fortunately, according to some stu- dents, graffiti usually didn ' t help the vandals ' situation. Pamela Overall, gov- ernment freshman, said, " When you write graffiti, the only thing it serves to do is lower people ' s opinion of what you are trying to express. " The Battle of the Bulge What exactly made the freshman year so hard ... so scary ... so chal- lenging ... or dare to say ... so fun!? " The freedom was the fun part, while the responsibility was the hard part. The students who could successfully balance the two were the ones to sur- vive their freshman year, " Dayna Dea- ly, international business sophomore, said. Although most students enjoyed the freedom, many found themselves miss- ing parents, family or pets and espe- cially those home-cooked meals. " It seemed like I was going home every other weekend ... it was always com- forting to sleep in my own bed. One thing I did learn to appreciate was the home-cooked meals that I used to hate! " Sandy Pennington, education sophomore, said. Some rumors that accompanied the freshman year struck terror into the hearts of many students especially the infamous " freshman fifteen. " It seemed as if the University supported the idea of gaining weight by strate- gically placing inviting vending ma- chines conveniently close to classes. story by Kelly Baldwin photos by Hannes Hacker " It ' s not fair there are vending machines everywhere and the Mexican food carts serve hot, tasty food at a very reasonable price. No wonder people warn you about gaining weight it ' s too tempting! " Carla Revis, speech freshman, said. The idea of being able to take re- freshments into some classes was new to many freshmen, and often taken ad- vantage of. Sometimes those snacks seemed vital to survive (or stay awake) during 50 minutes of a boring class. If vending machines didn ' t prove to be tempting, then maybe it was that person in the dorm who seemed to have a never-ending supply of homemade cookies. But most of all, it was hard to adjust to the fact that dormitory food service ceased at 7 p.m., much too early for the student who didn ' t pick up a book to study until 10, thus causing an overwhelming desire for pizza at mid- night. And in dorms, no matter what time of the night, it was never a prob- lem to find others to pitch in for that Domino ' s pan pizza. Although many students did become junk food victims, there still was hope. To compensate for all of the tempta- tions offered by vending machines, the University also had a nutrition coun- selor available. Lisa Kessler, the Stu- dent Health Center ' s registered dieti- tion, helped the student who fell into the freshman fifteen trap. Kessler coun- seled in all areas of nutrition, but the most popular topic for the students was weight management. According to Kessler, a common mis- take for some students was trying to solve weight problems by picking up a magazine and following the latest fad diet. " Many students don ' t realize that a diet plan needs to be personally con- structed to fit the individual ' s needs. That ' s where I can help, " Kessler said. And for the typical student who av- eraged a 16-hour day? Kessler suggest- ed stretching quality meals throughout the day. " It ' s more important what you eat than when, " Kessler said. Unfortunately, there was no magic spell to ward off the freshman 1 5 ... or the sophomore 15, or the junior 15. Instead, nutrition counselors urged stu- dents to follow a lifetime plan of a bal- anced diet and exercise in short, the same common sense advice that moth- ers have pushed for years. But with mothers (and fathers) far away during that crucial first year of college, this advice was much needed, even if it wasn ' t always followed. Ti LUNCH BREAK: Taking a break, J. P.

Die PEPS Freshman 15 55 The " freshman fifteen, " pizza, mov- ies and ice cream: all enemies of the health-conscious who had not found an active way to be healthy. There was a place where these people could find in- formative, fun and motivated exercise classes of all sorts right on campus. The UT Adult Fitness Program had filled this bill in the past, and despite the name, had accepted people, especially students, from 18 to 70 years of age. Basic classes such as aerobics, swim- ming, walking and jogging had been offered for 12 years, and the program was expanded in 1989. New courses included " Boxes, Etc., " a fairly station- ary aerobics class that involved the use of boxes to step up and down along with body balls and rubber bands for weight training and variety. A power walking class, water aerobics, the " rapid transit " running class and the " chain reaction " cycling program were also added. The most successful program, ac- cording to Nancy Friedrich of the AFP staff, was the Total Conditioning Pro- gram [TCP]. It included stationary bikes, boxes and computerized ma- chines that spoke to and encouraged the user. " With the addition of the Total Con- ditioning ' Powercise ' equipment and the bicycles, a whole new segment has been opened up, " Friedrich said. She added that attendance had increased for the entire program each semester. The purpose of the Adult Fitness Program was to educate people as to their fitness level, to teach proper tech- niques when exercising and to make exercise a lifetime endeavor. Partici- pants often began with a physical ap- praisal to learn their body composition [percentage of fat and muscle], lung condition, muscular strength and blood profile. All of the tests were state-of- story by Jeannine Caracciolo photos by Patrick Humphries the-art, and even included dipping un- derwater for the most accurate body composition reading. The fitness testing also gave students their exercise heart rate and explained why it was important to work at their own level. Participants agreed that be- ing more informed on exercise and health subjects and understanding the purpose of reaching their heart rate helped them to push harder in their exercise. Friedrich and the staff realized that motivation was an important factor in a lifetime fitness program. Prevention health magazine found that American ' s health was improving but most people were still weekend athletes. AFP members had an advantage be- cause motivation was so important. The talking " Powercise " machines, for ex- ample, had names such as Coach Harry and Coach Schroeder, and actually en- couraged and amused the user. The AFP also included a " Consistency Club " for each participant to look at their progress and interact with the oth- er members. The instructors were mainly enthusiastic graduate students in training and had quite a following, ac- cording to Friedrich. " Exercise fills a gap in my life, " said one participant who did not wish to be identified. Friedrich felt that any exercise was better than none. Climbing stairs, park- ing further from work or class and walking more all contributed to a healthier lifestyle. The AFP was estab- lished to promote health and to make these small exercises regular and safe. According to the rise in enrollment, it seemed to be working.

In addition to the party animals which had infest- ed campus, the University also housed many oth- er breeds of ani- mals. However, these animals didn ' t drink, play loud music or get into trou- ble. Birds, squirrels, raccoons, cats and bats were the animals caught flying or skittering around campus. Did you ever walk across campus as dusk became night and have your ears assailed with the squawking of large birds? Did you ever round the corner of Speedway and 21st and smell the stench of fowl secretions? These problems re- sulted from the hundreds of grackles which resided in the trees on campus. These birds caused quite a stir; one student wore his motorcycle helmet while running under the trees to avoid the dropping feces. " You have to be careful where you park your car or the birds will nail it. I have a black truck and the white spots story by Catherine Schlech photos by Hannes Hacker clash big time, " Mitch Bledsoe, phar- macy freshman, said. " The birds seem to have a leader which tells all the other birds when to let it drop, " Eric Matzner, geology freshman, said. One student complained that after bad weather, the white rain which fell from the trees made his umbrella smell. Another student had a bad start with grackles. On the day before classes, she was looking for her classes and grackle waste dropped right on her schedule. Welcome to the University! Superstitions concerning the grackles ran rampant. Some students said they considered it lucky to be crapped on. Mark Kraemer, business sophomore, said, " Waving a white shirt at the birds makes them fly away. " A friend of Mark ' s, Sanj Patel, aerospace engineer- ing sophomore, said he tried waving a green jacket but it didn ' t work. Although students avoided grackles, they spent countless hours watching the squirrels that scampered about the cam- pus. People sat on benches amusing themselves as these small rodents chased each other around the trees. " I used to throw little pieces of sugar cookies to the blond, albino squirrel which hangs around the ROTC build- ing, " Jody Justus, business sophomore, said. " I like to feed the squirrels pump- kin seeds, peanuts or any sort of seeds. They love them, " Jennifer Murphy, drama sophomore, said. However, not all students enjoyed the squirrels. Kim Setser, interior design freshman, said " I ' m terrified of the squirrels because they chase me. When- ever I am on campus, they attac k. One even ran up on a bench and threw him- self at me. " Did you know raccoons lived in the sewage drain on Trinity Street by the C parking lot? One family of raccoons with at least seven members was spotted shuffling down into the gutter. Mike Eckert, a mechanical engineering fresh- man, followed three raccoons until they disappeared into a drain. Yet another animal, this one more familiar, maintained residence on the University campus. A cat lived under Mezes Hall, entering through a broken grill. " When coming back from the UGL, I often walk between Mezes and Benedict to see if the cat is out sunning itself. When it is cold, the cat sits half in and half out of her home. She has long 58 Campus Animals FLOCKED TOGETHER: Crackles pass in the night near 21st street. ENJOYING THE DAY: During lunchtime, Angela Guarin, engineering sophomore, feeds a squirrel by the Union.

" Kathleen Self, mechan- ical engineering freshman, said. " Every time I walk by, the cat stares. The cat is totally aware of everything that ' s going on. It watches you as you pass very attentive, " Shane Wilson, journalism sophomore, said. Bats also hung around campus. " We were watching The Name of the Rose, a very scary movie, in the Hogg building. During a really horrifying part, bats were flying across the screen. We thought they were neat special effects until they came out towards us. Never again will we watch a movie in the Hogg building, " Carolyn Ross, international business marketing senior, said. Animals were a special part of the daily and nightly bustle about campus, and whether loved or hated, they were here to stay. Campus Animals 59 Murals, murals on the walls, what ' s the story of them all? Several murals adorned the faces of buildings around campus, and with their differing styles, messages and stories, added color to Austin ' s personality. Each had its own unique history that not only gave the artist ' s representation of life but also explained various aspects of the University ' s past. Since the paint- ings depicted everything from univer- sity life, culture and politics to simply whimsical designs, there was something which appealed to everyone. The Varsity Theater at 24th Street and Guadalupe boasted a colorful trib- ute to the film industry, showing snap- shots of several famous movies and stars from past decades ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Gary Grant. It was painted during 1979 and 1980 and was inspired by the times. " I thought a film history mural would be appropriate since film appreciation was very much a part of the culture at the University at the time, " Carlos Lowry, the artist, said. Jointly, the Varsity Theater and In- terart-Public Art, a now-defunct Austin arts organization, sponsored the project with funding from the government ' s Comprehensive Employment Training Act. More than 30 volunteers worked on the project over eight months. Despite the artwork ' s beauty, it was unable to escape the wear and tear of time, and in October and November touch-up painting was done on the bot- story by Kim Uhr photos by Hannes Hacker torn 12 feet of the mural. However, provisions were made to ensure the fin- ished product would retain the same look as the original. " We had all the numbers from the original colors so the retouched mural looked the same as the first one, " Steve Wilson, the Varsity ' s manager, said. Another mural, representing a chain of historical eras, appeared on the north wall of Harwood Travel at West 25th Street and Guadalupe. It depicted a procession of students of different races and social movements. There were musicians, athletes, protesters, a Texas Cowboy and an Orange Jacket member, each dressed in clothing char- acteristic of different eras. The mural showed the progress of different pe- riods of the University from the 1960 ' s to the present. Bob Breihan of the New Life Insti- tute was then the director of the Wesley Foundation, which helped to fund the mural. He said, " It was a gift to UT in the spirit of the centennial year of the University. " Many of the murals seemed to be the result of group efforts and funding, yet others served as a promotion for one individual. An example was the mural that appeared on the front of the Sound Exchange music store on 2 1st Street and Guadalupe. " The owner is a friend, and he asked me to paint it, " Frank Kozik, the artist, said. " Originally it was the T-shirt de- sign, and I just copied it onto the wall. " The painting portrayed two lizards and stars in a brightly-colored design. He has used the same type of artwork in his other work and pamphlets. When asked what inspired the design, Kozik said, " It ' s just a style. " Regardless of the style, each mural stood out with its own message while depicting the varied emotions and per- sonalities of campus as well as Austin.

OUT OF BOUNDS: A protester displays the offensive t-shirt sold by the Fijis to a television 62 Racism The photo by Daily Texan photographer Austin Holiday that sparked initial protests. It was the kind of thing that could never happen here. It hap- pened in Mississippi and Alabama years ago, but it couldn ' t exist to- day in such an enlight- ened environment. Mi- nority students claimed that it was always here, that most people ig- nored it. But after Round-Up weekend, no one could ignore it. Ra- cial tensions that had been simmering for years finally erupted and demanded the at- tention of everyone at the University and across the country. The spark that ignited the protest occurred after Round- Up weekend. On April 9, a car used by Delta Tau Delta in the Round-Up parade was found in front of the fraternity house, beaten and spray painted with racial slurs. Meanwhile, the Phi Gamma Deltas were under fire for selling t-shirts featuring a cartoon Sambo face on Michael Jordan ' s body. The Sambo character was the Fiji mascot until it was out- lawed in 1987 as being racially insensitive. The incidents outraged students. More than 1 ,000 people marched to the state capitol, and then to the Fiji house, in protest. The march was upbeat and peaceful, until a lone student stepped forward with a sign urging the Fijis to " Keep Sambo. " The march remained peaceful, but the point was made. Racial tensions existed at the University, and the students and faculty were divided over what should be done. At the heart of the controversy was PRIDE, Proposed Reforms to Institute Diversity in Education. The proposal, from the Black Student Alliance, called for hiring more tenured African-American faculty and requiring all students to take three hours of African-American studies. The plan A HOUSE DIVIDED story by Barbara Neyens photos by Charles Walbridge was criticized for not in- cluding other minority groups, and some called it reverse discrimina- tion. In late April, Todos Unidos, a coali- tion of Chicano student organizations, present- ed a similar series of re- forms entitled Manifies- todeTU. By the end of the year, the issue of re- quired ethnic studies classes remained the subject of heated de- bate. Racial accusations against the University were nothing new. An official enrollment of 50,245 in fall 1989 in- cluded 73 percent white students, 10 percent Hispanics, 7 percent foreign students, and less than 4 percent African- Americans. Minority recruitment and retention programs yielded only mixed results. Many claimed that poor minority retention was caused by an inherently racist environment. Efforts to erect a statue of Martin Luther King, Jr. were constantly hampered, until President Bill Cunningham finally gave his official endorse- ment to the project in the spring. Yet statues of Confederate war heroes such as Jefferson Davis had been a part of campus for decades, an inequity that sparked a ten-day hunger strike by second-year law student Tony Barrueta. The Delta Tau Deltas and the Fijis were sentenced to a one-year suspension, 1 ,200 hours of community service and mandatory multicultural training for all members and pledges, but the effects of the incidents lingered. The issues were complex, and solving them would require all students to evaluate their beliefs and attitudes. The events of the year ' s biggest party had blown the lid off of a seemingly peaceful campus, and a long, painful road to recovery lay ahead. Racism 63 George Bush visits Texas; graduates get a crash course in politics HAIL TO THE CHIEF When 4,700 students marched onto the field of Memorial Stadi- um, the eyes of Texas, and of the world, were watching. The sta- dium had hosted thrilling football victories and ago- nizing defeats, but on this warm sum- mer evening of May 19, it saw its most prestigious guest the president of the United States. Yet not everyone in the audience of 40,000, or in the grad- uating classes, welcomed George Bush with open arms. The controversy began in March when it was announced that a presi- dential visit was possible. Brian Wordell, marketing senior and chair- person of the Young Conservatives of Texas, told the Daily Texan that he was " elated " ; in contrast, Jennifer Burtner, graduate student in anthropology and member of the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, told the Texan that she considered it insulting. " We (CISPES) view this as an insult to Texans from the University given Bush ' s domestic policies, such as lack of attention to the homeless, AIDS re- search, the paranoia instilled by his war on drugs and his cynical rollback of women ' s rights, " she said. But ideological differences were just the beginning. No more than 2,200 graduates had ever attended an evening ceremony, according to Shirley Bird Perry, vice president for development and university relations, yet more than twice that number planned to partic- ipate this year. The ceremony was moved from the Main Mall to the Frank Erwin Center for security and seating considerations, but even with the estimated 2,400 add- ed seats, space was limited. Each grad- uate was allowed only two guest tickets, causing an uproar among those expect- ing more guests. " It ' s more important for me to have my family there than for the president to be there, " Sylvia Hernandez-Webb, speech senior, told the Texan. She had been expecting five guests. The ceremony was then moved to Memorial Stadium, lifting the ticket re- striction and enabling anyone to come. This alleviated the ticket problem, but not the political problem. Tom Philpott, co-editor of the alternative lo- cal newspaper Polemicist, had called for students to donate extra tickets to them so they could give them to people wish- ing to protest against Bush. He told the Texan he predicted a chaotic ceremony. " My impression is it (the protest) will be anarchistic, " he said. " Some grad- uates have said they will walk out; oth- ers will scream their heads off. It will be a hell of a media event. " His predictions, however, fell some- what short. While an estimated 100 protesters shouted and blew horns and whistles outside the stadium, the cer- emony itself was not disrupted. One protester was arrested and nine others on the top level of the stadium were quickly escorted out by UTPD and Se- cret Service, but the rest of the pres- ident ' s address went uninterrupted. Nevertheless, the constant sound of whistles and horns floating into the sta- dium was an audible reminder that not everyone was happy with the chosen commencement speaker. Even among the graduates, reactions were mixed. As the president was in- troduced, several students shouted, " Give ' em hell, George, " to which sev- eral students replied, " Go away, George. " Some students taped greet- ings on their mortarboards, while one 64 Commencement ' " khonisa ' DandSe- r sound of " wader that not wwt - ieone young woman tied a head of broccoli to hers, an obvious reference to the pres- ident ' s least favorite food. Yet for all the graduates and their families and friends, this was a day to remember. After an astonishing year of reforms in Eastern Europe and the dawn of a new understanding between the superpowers, they were ready to go out and make their own marks on the world. Whether they supported or op- posed President Bush, they would sure- ly live up to his closing advice. " Whatever you do, " he said, " Live a life of adventure and meaning so bril- liant that like a Roman candle, it lights up the world. Dazzle us. Astonish us. Be extraordinary.

This was just the beginning of an onslaught of overcrowding at the Uni- versity. Capital Metro shuttle buses were jam-packed. Student Health Cent- er services were pushed beyond capac- ity. Enrollment was still going up. Classes were also filled to capacity, and a significant number of undergrad- uate students couldn ' t get into the class- es they needed. While not new, the problem of class availability seemed to escalate in fall 1989 and continue into spring. This problem was of great concern to Pres- ident William Cunningham, one which he addressed thoughout the academic year. But what exactly was the problem? Were there too many students? Too few faculty? Did the University simply not have the resources to provide for 50,000 students? The Students ' Association claimed class availability as their " top priority " in the 1989-90 year. Jerry Haddican, SA president, told The Daily Texan, " The administration says there are too many students. Our position is not to reduce the number of students, it ' s to get enough classes for those who are here. " But the president was already work- ing on it. In March 1988 Cunningham established the Ad Hoc Committee on Undergraduate Education, chaired by James T. Doluisio, dean of the College of Pharmacy. This committee studied four aspects of the situation: course schedule and capacity, transfer student policy, quality of UT instruction and enrollment policies. Proposals were then periodically submitted to the pres- ident in each of these areas. Although many of the committee ' s proposals were supported by students for example, the idea that prereq- uisites to courses be applied only for academic preparatory purposes, and 82 Academic Report not simply to keep enrollment down in the higher-level classes Haddican ex- pressed concern that the administration would not heed the advice. The president responded in Septem- ber by announcing the addition of 50 faculty members and approximately 30 sections of high-demand courses. Stu- dents were dismayed, however, to find that not all of the new faculty would be hired to teach the unavailable classes; furthermore, the money was to come from the 1990 summer session budget. These and other concerns led Cun- ningham to release in October a three- part series of articles addressing the is- sues at hand. He stated that " the fun- damental problem is that the Univer- sity ' s student-teacher ratio of 22.27-to- 1 (fall 1988) is simply too high. " While the additional 50 faculty low- ered the ratio 0.55 percent, 200 to 300 positions would have to be filled before the class-availability problems would be solved. Because of the obvious financial con- straints to hiring 250 professors, hiring was a long-term but definite goal. In the meantime, less extensive measures were taken to curtail enrollment. For example, admissions require- ments were raised, and a new UT Sys- tem procedure was implemented through which some students not au- tomatically admitted to UT Austin were admitted to UT Arlington, UT San Antonio or UT El Paso. Many other steps were taken by the administration in areas such as course times and provisional admission, and by pointing out these actions in his news release, Cunningham helped to clarify the entire issue of class availability. But class availability does not a year make, and other concurrent problems at UT were confronted more success- fully. " The University has continued to make improvements on many fronts, including areas such as minority re- cruitment, improving the quality of teaching and strengthening our re- search programs, " Cunningham said.

Each dean was responsible for the academic departments of his college, many of which were rated as some of the best in the nation. They also served on different standing committees with- in their respective colleges. " A lot everyone does goes by un- recognized. A lot professors do is not recognized because it is not done in public, " Robert Jeffrey, dean of the College of Communications, said. " Sometimes you see the product of it, but you don ' t really see the work that goes into it. " Many of the deans had been UT pro- fessors or had held some other job in the University ' s hierarchy prior to be- coming dean. This perspective guided them to better the conditions of their college and face such issues as over- enrollment and budget problems. " There is the same kind of creative outlet (as being a professor), " Jon Whitmore, dean of the College of Fine Arts, said. " Being a dean allows me to work with various creative people and to step out of my own narrow disci- pline. " To increase knowledge of the deans ' role at the University and dispel the " high school principal " image, students were encouraged to become involved in campus organizations, such as the col- lege councils, or stop by the dean ' s of- fice to meet him or her. Jeffrey said he thought the average student perceived the dean as " an ogre. I think most students don ' t even know who the dean is. And they think the dean is there to enforce disciplinary ac- tion that ' s where the direct contact usually is, " he said.

VICK Vice President for Student Affairs Academic Report 85 Making Education Worthwhile Prof exhibits excellence in Spanish - - and English, and German. . . A professor of her fourth language and an accom- plished poet of her fifth, Yo- landa Sole, associate profes- sor of Spanish, foresaw herself doing in 10 years what she had done for the last 20 - - teaching Spanish linguistics at the University. " I ' m never going to retire - they ' ll have to retire me when I cave in, " Sole said after being named the 1990 receipient of the Harry Ran- som Award for Teaching Ex- cellence. In winning the most eminent teaching honor in the College of Liberal Arts, she became the first recip- ient from the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and only the second woman in the award ' s 17-year history. The award was particularly mean- ingful to Sole, she said, because of her longtime dedication to making the undergraduate classroom expe- rience as worthwhile as it could pos- sibly be. Students in her Spanish 318 class were expected to bring an in- ternational news clipping to class each week, and the classroom format often turned to debates on current political, social, cultural and intellec- tual topics in Spanish, of course. " An engineering student in one of my classes would derive several ben- efits, " she said. " A non-Spanish ma- jor taking a Spanish linguistics course would have the opportunity to in- crease his or her knowledge of the world. I ' m fascinated by how bridges stay up and planes fly, and I think that all intelligent and imaginative people are eager to gain new knowl- edge for knowledge ' s sake. " Also, engineering students in my 3 1 8 class would learn to bring out of themselves their own opinions - their own self-expression. We often discuss highly political topics having to do with Latin America, and the opinion these days seems to be more polarized along conservative and lib- A NEW APPROACH TO DRUG DEVELOPMENT Interested in who had won awards for science innova- tion lately? Laurence Hurley, professor of medical chem- istry, was such a winner in 1988 when he received the George Hitchings Award for cancer-fighting research. The award came in the form of a $300,000 grant which was to be used by the institution employing Hurley - in this case, UT. The money was supplied by the Wellcome Fund, a medical education foundation devot- ed to helping medical stu- dents with financial needs. " The award is given to an individual who has innova- tive approaches to drug de- velopment and concepts, " Hurley said. He did not ac- tually receive the money; instead, it was matched by the University and set up as a George Hitchings Pro- fessorship endowment. In September, Hurley invited George Hitchings, the 1988 Nobel Pri e recipient in medicine and the namesake of Hurley ' s award, to speak at the University. Hitchings agreed to come and discuss his award-winning drug development methods. One of the drugs Hitch- ings ' team of scientists had developed was AZT for AIDS patients. For Hurley, little changed after re- ceiving the award. " I will continue to focus on developing drugs for cancer treatment, " he said. He also added that he would have to use money from outside sources, as in the past, and simply enjoy the prestige his new- title brought. - Jeannine Caracciolo eral lines than ever before. " But I don ' t care whether they leave the class as liberals or conservatives as long as they clarify their thinking while they ' re taking the course. " Sole ' s aversion to political con- frontation went back to her child- hood, in fact, when she and her fam- ily were forced to leave Yugoslavia because of their politics. A native speaker of Croatian, Sole also gained fluency as a child in German and Italian. She added Spanish to her lan- guages when the family migrated to Argentina and learned English when she came to the United States a few years later for college. Her decision to become a teacher and a researcher in Spanish linguis- tics was easy. After earning a degree in music, contemplating a career in science and studying law for two years, Sole settled on Spanish linguis- tics while at Georgetown University because she decided that formal study of Latin America, its language and its literature was " one way of legitimi .ing my foreignness. " Sole ' s goals included designing and teaching a mathematically-oriented sociolinguistics course directed to- ward research, and perhaps a course on poetry. Her familiarity with the latter is more casual: she writes Eng- lish poems and illustrates them in an ornate style. English is her lanuage of choice for writing poetry; " when I write in Spanish, I plagiarize every- thing I ' ve ever read. " Above all, Sole says, she intends to continue interacting with students as much as possible. " Students always surpise me for two reasons: their re- sponse to me as a human being and teacher, and their contribution to my further intellectual growth, " she said. " It ' s truly incredible how much students and teachers alike can be stretched farther and farther. " " I ' m deeply honored and most grateful to have been given the Har- ry Ransom award, " she said. " This is truly the highpoint of my academic career. " Donita Robinson, with UT News- Report teed 86 Academic Rvpori Chancellor Hans Mark Sam Barshop Louis A. Beecherl, Jr. Jack S. Blanton Robert J. Cruikshank BRIDGING THE GAP The new decade heralded innovative changes and improvements in procedure for the University of Texas System Board of Regents. A controversial student ad- visory panel was introduced to act as a liaison between administration and stu- dents and offer advice on system prob- lems. In addition, an amendment was sanc- tioned to accelerate the approval process for research projects. After the 71st Texas Legislature defeat- ed the proposal for a student regent po- sition on the board, Chairman Louis Beecherl, Jr., of Dallas proposed a student advisory group be established so students could speak directly to the regents about their concerns. Students could input their ideas and receive immediate feedback from the regents. Mbreover, issues that affected students directly were more apt to be ad- dressed. " I think the students will be able to get their concerns aired and improve the com- munication link, " said Chancellor Hans Mark. The advisory panel consisted of 34 members: two undergraduates and one doctoral candidate from each component school, and one student from the UT Pan American campus in Brownsville. The in- itial panel members were selected by the presidents of each institution. Future mem- bers were to be selected by the panel. " I think the students will be able to get their concerns aired and improve the communication link. " Hans Mark, Chancellor Students ' Association President Jerry Haddican, an advisory panel representative from UT Austin, said, " We will discuss issues such as the condition of the Fi- nancial Aid Department, quantity and qual- ity of advisors and the minority recruit- ment retention issue. " Although the panel was reportedly plagued with organizational problems such as the election of panel members and initial meetings, they finally met with the regents in February. At the meeting, Beecherl rec- ommended a spokesperson for the panel be chosen, which angered many students on the panel because a single student re- gent had been attempted earlier and was denied. " Their reaction was typical of the attitudes that prevade the Board, " Had- dican said. Mark, however, agreed with Beecherl. " I suggest they elect a chairman and vice chairman, and break up into committees. Each committee can develop issues and present them to the board, " Mark said. In conjunction with the student advisory panel, a new amendment, aimed at avoid- ing unnecessary " red tape, " allowed proj- ects that did not initially meet regent guide- lines to be approved if the University ' s administration officers felt the projects would do more good than harm. Fresh modifications in the Board of Re- gents sparked some controversy and con- fusion, but displayed an earnest attempt to enhance the communication gap between the regents and each school in the UT system.

The speech addressed the issue of undergraduate class availability and was advertised by the President ' s office, but only 25-35 people attended. A MIX OF NATURE AND ADVERTISING In 1855, Horace Greeley wrote an article advising as- piring young men of the op- portunities in the west. " Turn your face to the great west, " he said, " and there build up your home and your fortune. " A hundred years later, his advice was well tak- en by aspiring young women as well. " I ' ve always been partial to the West, " Dr. Patricia Stout, assistant professor of advertising, said. " I did most of my undergraduate educa- tion at Arizona and made a circle back to the Midwest for my graduate work. I wanted to get west again (to teach), and this was a good school and the farthest west. " Stout said the UT advertising program ' s good reputation and grad- uate students, as well as its location, influenced her decision to come to the University in 1983. Stout said that living in the hill country was the best part of being in Austin. " It ' s been a real delight for me to realize what the area was like before it became the metropolitan place it is, " she said. She said she read books about the plants and animals in the area and learned to identify things she saw. " I put water out for the birds, and I ' ve seen armadillos come and take baths in it ... I ' ve learned a lot about the wildlife and plants, " she said. One of the most important things she said she has learned is the in- terconnectedness of all things. " I sort of discovered that while doing an English paper my freshman year ... 1 understand now that that ' s a major Zen-like thought to have: that the plants are connected to the an- imals and the Earth is connected to that and we ' re all connected to the planet . . . but that was a real surprise to me at the time, " she said. " I find that ' s very important in advertising, in that every decision you make with advertising is connected to other de- cisions in the marketing mix. " She found evidence of this com- munion of nature and civilization abundant in Austin. " We have so many outstanding natural things here with all the water and hills, " she said. " It ' s been a real joy to be that close to nature and still work at a university as big as UT in a city the size of Austin. " Laura Stevens 88 Academic Report The Academics of Architecture UT Architecture graduate returns to teach " To build or not to build, that is the question. " Where, how and when were also questions pertinent to archi- tecture. Alexander Blake, as an architecture major, re- quired many hours of work on each project. Blake obtained two de- grees from the University. He received a bachelor of ar- chitecture in 1950 and a bachelor of science in archi- tecture in 1951. Two years later, Blake received a mas- ter ' s from Columbia Univer- sity in New York. Blake said that he felt the span of 40 years leave architecture classes of the Nineties more difficult. Undergrad- uate architectural design classes and graduate art history classes, in Blake ' s opinion, varied greatly ac- cording to professors. Blake ' s most memorable teacher in graduate school was Emerson H. Swift, the reader for his thesis. " Swift ' s way of teaching was very scholarly. He had a very gentle way of lecturing and holding seminars and the like, " Blake said. Architecture studios demanded many hours. According to Blake, de- sign was the most time-consuming part of architecture education. " Working away at coming up with the solution to a design problem was the hardest part of the studios, " he said. Blake taught for two years at Kan- sas State University. He also did con- sulting and directing work at a sum- mer program for the Historic American Building Survey, aiding a team of students doing drawings of historic buildings in Pennsylvania. History, traveling and music ranked highly among Blake ' s hobbies. Architecture created many beau- tiful building designs. This bachelor from Paris, Texas, offered his serv- ices to the architectural world through teaching. by Catherine Schlech History That Everybody Loves ;TISING " : ' ' : itrtisiflji CMOIW- . aation ' Have you ever tried to carry on a conversation with 500 people? It was often far easier just to lecture to so large a group, but lecturing was not what Michael Stoff, associate professor of histo- ry, did best. " Good history Mann,-, Hacker begins with 3 gOod story, " Stoff, who had taught at the University for ten years, said. His lectures were conversational, asking ques- tions and waiting for stu- dents to answer. He tried to get literally closer to the stu- dents, no small task in the large teaching auditoriums of the University Teaching Center. " I want to break down that invisible wall at the front of a room. I prefer to come down from the podium and walk around. I ' m not just deliv- ering information; rather, I try to help the students think about the issues presented in class, " Stoff said. Engaging his students in the material being presented was the key to his tech- nique. As an undergraduate at Rutgers University in New Jersey, StofPs fa- vorite aspect of student life was the faculty ' s attitude toward the stu- dents. " Students are a part of the intellectual community (at Rutgers), worthy of respect, " he said. " I didn ' t have any instructors who felt that they were doing the students a favor by teaching them. There were many excellent teachers who respected both knowledge and the students, and this respect was returned. I knew I wanted to teach and write history and found myself focusing on how one teaches rather than how one learns. " Stoff said he continued this tradition of respect in his classrooms. While many students may have felt lost in a class of several hundred, Stoff said that the large variety of students was one of the attractive as- pects of working at the University. Teaching in so large a public insti- tution held special meaning for Stoff. " I ' m an advocate of public educa- tion, though I received my doctorate from Yale. Teaching at the Univer- sity of Texas is an enormous chal- lenge, with enormous rewards, " he said. In addition to teaching, Stoff was director of the honors program in history. With the advent of the Plan I Honors program, he said he hoped to foster closer coordination between Plan I and the departmental honors programs. Also, Stoff said he wanted to continue to write. " Everybody loves history; they just don ' t know it. I want to write history that people can and will read, not just for specialists. I ' d like to make his- tory accessible to the non-specialist as well as to my colleagues, " he said. Outside the classroom, Stoff de- scribed himself as a " frustrated jock. " He enjoyed running and bas- ketball, and was regularly soundly defeated by his son. " I like to play tennis with my son, but he beats the pants off me, " he said. Although raising his children took most of his time, in fall 1989 he had found a new interest. " I ' ve just be- come interested in modern fiction. There was a time when I wouldn ' t pick up a book published after the nineteenth century, " he said. As for the future, Stoff said, " I just want to keep teaching and writing. If you take care of the short term, I find that the long term takes care of itself. " James P. O ' Shea III Academic Report 89 ' I ' M FED UP, BILL! ' UT President William Cunningham toured the crowded corridors of the Frank Erwin Center, passing lines of frustrated students waiting for classes to become available during Spring 1990 adds and drops. The president stopped and asked one student how she was doing. " I ' m fed up, Bill! " she answered. And yes this was a true story. Controlling high enrollment and prevent- ing class-availability problems were only two of the issues that needed to be addressed and solved in 1989. The University ' s fall 1989 enrollment was 50,245 stu- dents. Although this was only a 0.3 percent increase over the previous year ' s total of 50,107 students, it was the largest en- rollment in UT ' s history. Ac- cording to a UT News and In- formation Service press release, the slight increase was due to the number of con- tinuing and returning students. The decrease in freshman and transfer undergraduate en- rollment seemed promising for class availability, yet many students did not receive the number of semester hours they needed. One possible so- lution was registering for classes the student did not want in order to carry a full- time class load. Another so- lution was attending a smaller university to take required classes. " I pre-registered and only got three hours after register- ing, " Ansley Kennedy, fashion merchandising freshman, said. " I went to adds an drops the first day and they told me all the classes I needed were closed. Ad- ministration told me to go to Austin Com- munity College for the rest of my hours. I went to adds and drops again; I ended up with three classes I didn ' t want to take. " Considering a smaller institution such as St. Edward ' s University, where the enroll- ment was roughly 6,000 students, was an option for many students. At this school, one could obtain a special permit which allowed you to take a required class even if it was filled. " I think it ' s a lot easier to get clases because it is a smaller school, " John Ro- bles, a natural sciences freshman at St. Edward ' s said. " It ' s easier in the sense that, if you don ' t get a class you need, you can go talk to someone and they can solve photo by George Bridges Carlos Barren, Ron Cirihal and Jenny Darling fill out add forms for English 31 6K while hundreds of students wait in line during departmental adds and drops. your problem right away instead of getting the run-around. " In a series of editorials published in The Daily Texan during October 1989, Cun- ningham said the University could handle 50,000 students and that the problem was not availability of classrooms but rather a lack of faculty to teach the classes. When asked what steps the adminis- tration had taken to prevent class- availability problems for the spring semes- ter, Cunningham said Vice President and Provost Gerhard Fonken would monitor all courses which had significant problems and then approve the addition of an ap- propriate number of seats and sections. Also, Cunningham said that the tendency for departments to schedule too many courses between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. created registration prob- lems, since most students and faculty members preferred classes during this narrow time slot. In an attempt to spread out classes, Fonken ordered the registrar ' s office to remove sections at peak hours from the Spring 1990 course sched- ule so that students would be forced to fill up 8 a.m. and late afternoon classes during pre- registration. " A student signs up for his required courses and is no- tified that there is no avail- ability for most of these courses because enrollment is so high, " Carlos Gutierrez, ra- dio-television-film freshman, said. " Even after I went to adds and drops for two con- secutive days, no classes were available to add except upper- division courses. I ' m only tak- ing nine hours. If they didn ' t have enough class availability for this many, then why did they accept so many stu- dents? I ' d like to see the Uni- versity provide more classes for all divisions. " Gutierrez ' sentiments were echoed by many other frus- trated students who waited in line, some- times for hours, to get their classes if they got them at all. Students were de- manding a solution, and though the Uni- versity ' s administration made some im- provements in 1990, many issues still needed resolution.

" Dreher had been teaching since the early Sixties, both at the Univer- sity and at the UT Medical Branch in Galveston. She in- structed the first upper- division nursing course, Nursing Clinical Practicum I, in the spring semester. " Students learn such skills as how to do health assess- ments, physical exams, per- sonal hygiene care and giv- ing injections and Long-time nurse challenges next nursing generation immunizations, " Dreher said. " We also do health screenings on newborns and older adults at St. Da- vid ' s and Seton Hospital. " When asked how students reacted to giving their first shots, Dreher said that some fainted, but no one ever quit. " Everybody has some hur- dles they must get over, like the dread of giving injections, " she said. " But interacting with patients is an even greater hurdle for some peo- ple. " " She is real big in getting students to volunteer for community charity functions, " Paul Violand, nursing senior and president of the UT Nurs- ing Students Association, said. " As one of the founders of the school of nursing at UT, she has a very strong commitment to this field. " From obtaining her graduate de- gree here at UT in Austin to gaining a masters at Galveston, Dreher had been involved in nursing for up to four decades. She was currently the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs in Nursing and continued to be an in- spiration for all future nurses. To conclude, Dreher said that nursing " is a very exciting field to be in. " Deborah V. Wolantejus FIGHT AGAINST DRUGS REACHES UT Frauds Teixeira Drugs were a major problem in 1990; it seemed al- most impossible to go anywhere with- out hearing some- thing about them. The problem grew into epic proportions even into our classroom, where Miles Cris- mon, associate professor of pharmacy, taught a " Drugs In Our Society " class. Crismon ' s goal was " to ex- pose students to things an ed- ucated consumer should know about drugs and phar- maceuticals and the health care system and how it re- lates to pharmaceuticals and medicine, " he said. Most pharmacy courses were taught at the profes- sional level and not open to most students. " The dean sees it as sort of service or civic responsibility to teach a general course for University stu- dents, " Crismon said. " It was really a new experience for me to teach stu- dents that had other majors in liberal arts, business and journalism, but it was also refreshing to teach people with other viewpoints. " Crismon ' s specialty was the treat- ment of psychiatric disorders with drugs. He taught his class everything from bioethics to animal testing, in- cluding the side effects of drugs and how they behave in the body. Other subjects included how drugs got on the market and information on " non-prescription drugs so consum - ers can more intelligently self- Miles Crimson ' s goal was " to expose students to things an educated consumer should know about drugs and Pharmaceuticals " medicate themselves; so they can go into a pharmacy and buy things off the shelf, " Crismon said. Crismon was born in Tulsa, Okla., where he earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Oklaho- ma. He came to Texas " because the more creative professionals were there and my mentors encouraged me to go there, " Crismon said. " I thought I would be here two to three years and move on. I ' ve been here 10 years now, and I ' m not sure if I ' ll ever leave, " he said. " I ' m here because I want to be here, even though I ' m a native Okie. " Crismon admitted being " a prod- uct of the ' 60s " and enjoyed Austin; " even though I still wear a tie, deep inside, the 60s still live and I like the ' laid-back ' atmosphere. " I like a city, " he continued, " that is concerned with things other than just how many corporations it can attract. I think having fights over our environment and preserving the quality of life is a plus. Overall it strikes a balance that makes it a good place to live. " Crismon ' s other interests included hunting, hiking and camping, but he learned about the world from his un- dergraduate experiences. " There were more people in my dorm than there were in my hometown [of 1,800], " he said. Being involved in student organizations taught him " how to get things done, learn about processes and how to work with peo- ple, " he said. He attributed much of his success to hard work and goal orientation. " Most of the time, if you don ' t meet your goals, at least you ' re going to be a lot further ahead than you were before, " Crismon said. His mentor, Charles Walton, associate dean of the School of Pharmacy, " encouraged me to set five-year goals and evaluate them periodically. That was one of the most important things I learned as a young professional. " Richard Cuellar Academics Report 91 EMULATING FAMILY THERAPY SESSIONS When his 15-year-old daughter underwent coun- seling for alcohol abuse about five years ago, Jerome Bump, professor of English, got his first close look at the procedures of psychothera- py. The treatment facility they had chosen required all family members to attend regular sessions as part of a regimen in which parents and siblings take part in the patient ' s recovery. Bump, an authority on Victorian literature and re- cipient of UT teaching awards, soon acquired first- hand knowledge of the social destructiveness of substance abuse and decided to search appropriate ways to relay his insights to his English students. " There ' s a tremendous amount of substance abuse on campus, and quite a bit of addiction as well, " Bump said. " As a teacher, I wanted to do my part to help prevent others from falling victim to the kind of substance abuse that had already devastated my family. " After casting about for a way to confront substance abuse directly through literature, Bump came up with a method in which he mimicked the therapy sessions his family had undergone. Because the family ther- apy system had shown its mettle in articulating emotions and providing for fresh insights, it seemed reason- able to Bump that an English liter- ature class could be structured much in the same way. In particular, he began focusing on the relationship between the college classroom and an area of psychotherapy known as " bibliotherapy, " or the use of liter- ature and other written works to pro- mote psychological healing. His speciality in late 19th century British literature was perfectly suited for the task because it was during the Victorian era that writers such as Charles Dickens, the Brontes and Thomas Hardy began to be critical of substance abuse. Before that, al- coholism was little more than the subject of comic ridicule, and the use of other drugs stood virtually uncon- demned in literature. The class structure was perhaps the most innovative feature of the new approach. Students would dis- cuss how the various reading assign- ments had affected them emotionally and then would break off into groups of four to six individuals. The smal- ler groups discussed more intimately which aspects of the reading assign- ments that had affected them emo- tionally. As it turned out, substance abuse proved to be too limited an approach because of resistance to the message. " If you tajk about drugs and alcohol " them 92 Academic Report ANY DAY ' S A GREAT DAY FOR A BARBECUE John McKetta, professor of chemical engineering, hosts the " McKetta ' s Picnic " for UT ' s American Society of Chemical En- gineers at his home on Lake Austin.

Bump revised his technique so that novels depicting both substance abuse and deteriorating family rela- tionships would be read and dis- cussed. As an example of the former, he might have assigned Charles Dick- ens ' Oliver Twist, which he thinks may be the first work of English literature in which alcohol abuse receives se- rious treatment. As for destructive family relationships, the novels of the Bronte siblings proved to be ideal; Charlotte Bronte ' s Jane Eyre con- cerns a young girl who serves as her foster family ' s scapegoat and who to- day would be considered a victim of child abuse. " When we discuss Jane Eyre we look at the concept of the True Self, or the innate personality character- istics you possess before society, par- ents, school and other factors make you adopt a pseudo-self to cope with other people ' s expectations, " Bump said. Although Bump ' s approach was not to the taste of every student, more than two-thirds indicated in teaching evaluations that his course was the most personally relevant they had taken. Another 30 percent in- dicated that the family dynamics ap- proach to literature was among the most relevant courses they had had. Bump stressed that no one was re- quired to talk about personal emo- tions in class, and that the course descriptions available before regis- tration make it clear that emotion was to be the focus of classroom dis- cussion. Although there was no re- quirement that students talk about themselves, they had to at least be prepared to analyze the emotions of characters in the stories. For this rea- son, the class should not have been viewed as therapy, but rather as ei- ther a personalized approach to the study of literature or a study of the- ories of family dynamics. For those students who participat- ed, Bump believed the rewards were great. " It takes a lot of courage, when you ' re 18 years old, to do this, " he said. " You ' re just leaving your family of origin, and the course at times brings out emotions that can make you feel you ' re betraying your family. " Bump ' s family systems approach was prominately cited when he was awarded the 1990 Jean Holloway Award for Excellence in Undergrad- uate Education at UT. In announc- ing his selection, the committee not- ed that Bump not only covered the literature thoroughly, but also strove to " help students express what they feel " and to learn " about themselves and other people. " Donita Robinson with UT News Academic Report 93 Enthusiasm in Class Richard Goebcl The UT faculty hosted a wide va- riety of personal- ities and teaching styles. They ranged from the traditional black- board and eraser method to the more unconventional. Dr. San Juanita Martinez- Hunter, lecturer in drama, who exemplified this " off- the-beaten-path " kind of teaching. Hunter was a dance in- structor for the Department of Drama. The classes she taught included jazz, modern and ethnic dance styles. Af- ter receiving her undergrad- uate degree, master ' s and doctorate in dance education from Texas Women ' s Uni- versity in Denton, she ac- quired a great variety of teaching experiences in Monterrey and Lare- do. She later moved to Austin and remained as a teacher at the Uni- versity for the next 16 years. However, it was not Hunter ' s background that made her special, but the excitement and energy that she generated in her classes. Wheth- er it was her bubbly " Hello my dar- lings! How are you today? " or her expressive movements, Hunter ' s en- thusiastic personality lent a panache to her classes that was often lost in large, impersonal college classes. " As far as I can remember, even as a child, I have always been teaching someone something, " Hunter said. This was not surprising, considering that she came from a large family of educators. She had teaching " in her blood. " However, Hunter did not think that even she was finished learning. " I believe that learning is a never-ending process. There is al- ways more to learn in all areas of life, " she said. Many of Hunter ' s students shared a common opinion about her teach- ing skills. Lora Lopez, pharmacy jun- ior, was Hunter ' s student for one year. " The general opinion about Dr. Hunter is that she makes class fun, like it should be, " Lopez said. Arpana Sathe FINDING Job allows Knapp Mark Knapp, professor of speech communication, did not decide on his profession for many years. He had be- gun his college career at the University of Kansas after growing up in Kansas City, Mo., but left after one year, thinking college was not for him. He returned to KU af- ter a few years in the army, feeling what he described as " older and more mature. " Near the end of his senior year studying television, Knapp was assigned to Kan- sas City to interview top ex- ecutives in his field. There, he said, he was disappointed to find the professionals to be " shallow and not socially conscious. " He finished his master ' s degree, however, and left the school still un- certain of his career. Knapp was encouraged by an instructor to go to Penn State to work on a Ph.D. It was there he re- alized teaching was what he wanted to do and speech communication was what he wanted to study. Since then he has taught in several states, and Immigrating to Longhorn Country Thousands of out-of-state students came last year to Texas to attend the University. What was the attraction? Banks Bleckley, a business sophomore from Athens, Ga., chose the University be- cause the business school ' s reputation and the fact that her father lived here. But her impressions of Austin quickly became a fac- tor. " This is the prettiest place in Texas, and there ' s so much to do, " she said. " I knew about Sixth Street, all the concerts, the lakes, and all the eating and drinking that goes on. " Bleckley said she also wanted to come to the University because she knew it would be a challenge. " I lived in Athens all of my life and I wanted to see if I could handle going away by myself, " she said. " Most of my friends stayed at home, but I wanted to go away and see what it was like. Going to UT gives me more choices for the future and helps me grow.

Most of his teaching classes dealt with speech, including classes such as non-verbal communication. Despite job offers outside academia, Knapp stuck with teaching because, as he said, " I have a strong need to have the freedom to follow my ideas. " He also enjoyed teaching students who went on to have many accomplishments. He said that know- ing he was associated with these people and had an influence on them was the most important part of his work. Many students at the University knew Knapp for his offbeat sense of humor. He possessed a rhino collec- tion that attested to this fact. As he told it, many years ago, out of bore- dom, he entered a conversation about the virtues of dogs over cats as pets. Eventually the conversation turned to the possibilities of domes- ticated rhinos. He had had no pre- vious interest in rhinos before that, but was dubbed " rhino defender " af- terward. He had since acquired what he believed to be the largest rhino collection in the world. Jeannine Caracciolo LECTURES AND MAGIC But some students seemed to be des- tined to come to school in Austin from the time they were in diapers. Vic Manes, an economics senior from Yorba Linda, Ca., said his entire family graduated from the University, even down to distant cousins. " I have been coming to football games here since I was little and I always knew I would go here, " he said. After one visit to Austin during his senior year in high school, Nathan Cromwell, mar- keting actuarial science senior, decided to attend the University because of its ac- ademic reputation. " This school had a good overall engineering program and I wanted to come here because it was such a change from my hometown, " he said. Veronica O ' Donovan, graduate student in Indian art history from Alexandria, Va., left Colgate University in upstate New York because UT offered her money to come study here. " I wanted to get away and go somewhere else for my Ph.D., " she said. These out-of-state students said they - Charles Walbridge Every student ' s night- mare: Those large, intro- ductory, so-called " weed- out " courses. Every student ' s dream: Paradigm lecture notes. This seemed to be the case for most introductory classes at the University, but for Psychology 301, it was a different story. Psy- chology wasn ' t easy, but Marc Lewis, associate pro- fessor of psychology, used such unique teaching techniques that he kept students in class, eager to learn. " It ' s a blast ! Dr. Lewis makes class so interesting and fun, you just want to come back to see what else he can come up with, " Jennifer Adams, lib- eral arts freshman, said. So what set Lewis aside from other professors? Well, there was a big dif- ference between teaching and ex- plaining, and Lewis just didn ' t let recognized distinct differences between Austin and their hometowns. On his first day of class, Cromwell said, he realized that his hometown Sidney, Mont., a community of 5,500 farmers on a flat, wind-swept prairie, did not really pre- pare him for life at the University. " My classes had more people in them than were in my whole high school, and I had never been to a concert or amusement park be- fore coming here. " He said the number of homeless and destitute people also affected him. " Where I ' m from there are no really rich or really poor people. Here there are ' drag worms ' and then there are friends of mine who drop 100 bucks like it ' s nothing. " O ' Donovan said Austin was a welcome change because, in Alexandria, " there were only two stop lights, one movie theater, and the nearest mall was 45 minutes away. " O ' Donovan said UT, unlike Colgate, was in a cultural city that offered many things. anything slip by without it being completely understood. " A lot of psychology is based on things that apply to the real world, and I just try not to make it a list of facts, " Lewis said. His real-life ex- amples and explanations left students at the end of class thinking, " So . . . that ' s why I did that yesterday! " After 1 1 years of teaching, Lewis had mastered the technique of cap- turing his audience. His inspiration came from a fictitious TV character known as " Mr. Wizard. " Lewis re- called how entertaining it was to watch Mr. Wizard perform " magic " for an audience of children while ac- tually teaching them physics incog- nito. Going to college at Indiana University, Lewis discovered going to class wasn ' t as exciting as learning from Mr. Wizard. So, after obtaining his Ph.D. at the University of Cin- cinnati, Lewis decided to add a touch of Mr. Wizard to his own teaching style. Now a tenured professor working on community psychology and epi- demiology (and inspiring hundreds of undergraduates with his entertain- ing teaching techniques), Mr. Wizard excuse me, Dr. Marc Lewis was an original asset to the UT faculty. by Kelly Baldwin " It ' s a big city, but it doesn ' t feel unsafe or uncomfortable. There are great museums, parks and nightclubs, " she said. Looking for a social scene different from the one in Highland Park, a suburb outside of Chicago, Jason Kaplan, business soph- omore, decided to come to Austin after visiting his sister. He said people were different in the two cities. " Everyone there is aggressive and pushy. Here people are more courteous. People randomly come up and talk to you, " he said. Paula Estornell, graduate student in geo- technical engineering, agreed. She said the students and people in Austin are more polite, friendly and open, something that she had not expected. The Drexel, Pa., native said Northerners think people in the South are close-minded and bigoted. " Texas is close to the Bible Belt and I thought everyone would have southern ac- cents and cowboy boots and hats, " she said. " But I haven ' t seen a cowboy yet.

Sch- mandt had been invited to speak about the problem of global warming at a brown bag lunch. Two dozen peo- ple shared their time with the professor discussing this " hot " topic. There were many prob- lems associated with studying the greenhouse effect. First of all, Schmandt emphasized, it was impossible to prove global warming as a scientific fact as such, because temperature documen- tation had only been available for a very short time in the span of world history. There had always been DRAWING It was the break every de- signer dreams of; a training job with a strong ad agency, a trip to Florence to study un- der the best, an education at the Rhode Island School of Design; however, he wanted to be a poet. At least that was how David McDermott, lec- turer in art, told it. Seeming to fit the typical story of a young scholar with- out direction, McDermott in- itially went to college at Tufts University, where he attained a B.A. in English. During that time he was an undergraduate writer taught by some of the strangest and most opinionated poet- 96 Academic Report Uncomfortably Warm? affairs brings a global issue down to a local perspective warmer and colder periods. However, one thing was for sure: " Through the industrial activities and the population increase, " Sch- mandt said, " we have changed the composition of our atmosphere. Now it contains 25 percent more carbon dioxide than 200 years ago. " Starting at that point, setting sci- entific parameters and pushing for legal action were seen as highly dif- ficult to achieve by scientists. Too many assumptions had to be made in projection models of global warm- ing. For instance, one of them op- erated on the idea that the earth was covered by an ocean body that was only 16 feet deep! " Getting a global issue down to si e " was Schmandt ' s basic plan of action. He wanted to relate science to political action, locally as well as worldwide. Therefore he designed a graduate study project that exam- ined water availability over the course of three years at four prin- cipal Texas aquifiers. " The urban needs are growing, " Schmandt said, " and who knows what is going to happen in the Rio Grande Valley. One day the rice farmers may disappear because rice farming is getting too expensive. " The graduate study project would eventually result in a book that made a projection into the year 2030, tak- ing into consideration the expected population increase. " We don ' t really need a green- house effect in addition to the ex- isting problems, " Schmandt said. " On the Gulf coast we have always had a problem of subsidence. When the two things come together, every- thing is going to get worse. The last estimates are that the impact on Tex- as and Louisiana may be two to three times larger than on the rest of the North American continent. " The Texas project, however, con- stituted only half of Schmandt ' s work. He was also concerned with related policy making, commuting between the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and the Northwood Center for Growth Studies near Houston. " The United States contributes a quarter of worldwide emissions in fossile fuel combustion. This prob- lem cannot be solved locally. There has to be at least a national decision, " he said. Schmandt was concerned with de- veloping countries as well. " Right now (developing countries) contrib- ute little to the warmth polution, but their fuels of choice are wood and coal. In order to feed their growing populations the situation will look much different 10 or 15 years down the road, " Schmandt said. He con- cluded that the developing countries would have the greatest objection to banning traditional fuels. Persistance in approach and fresh- ly collected local data constituted Schmandt ' s approach to global warming. Sometimes he became thoughful about the existing political structures. " It is extraordinarily dif- ficult to get policy makers to take into account what may happen 40 years down the line. Politicians only think in two-, three- and four-year re-election periods, " he said. No matter what the listeners ' per- sonal opinions on the greenhouse ef- fect were, one thing was engraved upon their minds: " We don ' t need a climate change. We have enough problems already. " Annelies Schlickenrieder A DESIGNER OUT OF A POET teachers around. McDermott said he enjoyed his time there, but it was not very profitable. Fresh out of college, his first job was writing public relations spots for a tire company.. " There I was, with intensive Shakespeare study, novel writing experience and a poet, and I was writing for a tire company, " McDermott said. After quitting the tire company, McDermott landed a job as a pro- duction manager at a small but suc- cessful ad agency, a literal " mansion on a lake, " McDermott said. He orig- inally was hired to write PR for the firm, but ended up in their design section due to lack of work. Over a span of six years, he worked for sev- eral other ad agencies while attend- ing the Museum of Fine Arts in Bos- ton, where he took painting and drawing classes. It was in 1982 that the design urge really hit McDermott, who felt he could do just as well as the trained designers. That year he went to Flor- ence, Italy, for a summer abroad course and studied under several great designers. After returning, he attended the Rhode Island School of Design ' s graduate program. This was one of the most respected schools in the field. In 1986 McDermott did freelance work for companies and finally, in March 1988, began his own firm, Environmental Graphic Design, In- corporated. Along with this he be- came a " visiting lecturer " at the Uni- versity, which meant that he was on a semester by semester contract. He was not tenured, but he said he loved his job because he liked to keep his students well informed. He especially hoped to convey tol- erance to his students, which was the most important lesson he ever learned. As far as hobbies go, McDermott had a variety of inter- ests. He had loved architecture all of his life, liked to run with his dog, and enjoyed old movies from the 1900s to the 1930s. Overall he was quite content with his life, even though he hadn ' t published a best-seller yet.

While other factors helped to determine the outcome, publishing was a large part of the controversial process of the " tenure track " . Recruiting a new assistant professor for a job opening was a complicated process. According to Robert T. Green, chairman of the Department of Marketing, each department had its own system for hiring. After applications, interviews and several presentations, the last candidates accepted a position with the University and finished their doctoral work, at which time they were officially called assistant profe ssors. In order for these new faculty members to become professors " they have to establish themselves as good teachers and as good researchers, " Green said. The faculty used student and faculty evaluations to de- termine if the assistant professors were resonably good teachers. " The student input, including course evaluations and personal comments, were the most important factors in determining the teaching ability of the assistant professors, " Green said. The faculty evaluated their teaching ability using an informal process of forming impressions through class- room visits and input from student organizations. The other half of becoming a professor was publishing. The assistant professors had to publish significant material in their fields. For those teachers seeking tenure, publishing required a considerable amount of time. Depending on their field, new research could be challenging to produce. Some- times it became a question of what was more important: to publish work in their field or to be a good teacher for their students. Most professors hoped to accomplish both. There was no specific number of articles that professors had to publish, only enough to constitute significant research. Faculty members often worked together on their research, using the knowledge pool to further all of their careers. " The publishing aspect is an established program of re- search where you report on a different aspect of that research every time you publish an article all of it building upon itself, " Wayne Hoyer, associate professor of marketing, said. At the end of the assistant professors ' sixth year, called the " up or out " year, a committee decided if the assistant professors had demonstrated reasonable teaching ability and contributed significant research. If they had fulfilled their part, the committee granted them tenure and they became as- sociate professors. After approximately six more years the faculty again reviewed their work, and if they had dem- onstrated teaching and research ability on a level equal to that of a professor they were granted professorship. " Some schools emphasize research that pushes out the frontiers of knowledge without respect to whether anyone in the real world cares, and others stress more immediate applicability in the real world. It is the difference between theory that can be applied instantly, and theory that builds with and upon other theory, " Leigh McAlister, associate professor of marketing, said. If the assistant professors had not fulfilled either part of the necessary qualifications, then they were " de facto termi- nated " and had to find a job elsewhere. They were allowed to work at UT for one more year before leaving in search of another university or college in which to start the tenure process once again.

I think they ' ve got a right to demand a good education, and they ' ve got the right to put some de- mands on me, and I don ' t mind that in the least, " Gaylord Jentz, professor of business law, said. Jentz started teaching at Texas in 1965 after receiv- ing his undergraduate de- gree, M.B.A., and J.D. from the University of Wisconsin. Back in his graduate days of law school, Jentz was a house fellow in charge of the house made up primarily of engineering students. " During the Saint Patrick ' s Day rivalry, the engineers would catch any lawyer or law student they saw and shave his head, or paint him green. As for me, they locked me in my room for two days and wouldn ' t let me out, " Jentz said. Jentz liked collecting coins and traveling. " When I retire in the next six years or so, I intend to do some traveling with my wife. " Academically, Jentz planned to continue what he had been doing for the last 24 years right here at the University. His most gratifying ex- periences at the University were re- ceiving teaching awards from both the staff and students. Jentz tried to spend as much time as possible with students and the Uni- versity. He had been involved with committees ranging from, the Uni- versity Rules Committee to the Com- mittee for the Reaccreditation of the College of Business Administration. He said he had " always considered the primary goal of an academician to be the development of student learning . . . the real essence of learn- ing is the result of exellence in teach- ing. A good teacher must stimulate, encourage, give constructive criti- cism and even pressure the student to develop his or her capabilities, re- gardless of the difficulty imposed.

But a UT experi- mental psychologist found that persons who took aspi- rin and then were exposed to intense sounds were at an even greater risk of both per- manent and temporary hear- ing loss. " The evidence is worri- some because it implies that people who use aspirin and who are routinely exposed to intense sounds, either in their jobs or in recreational pursuits, may be risking greater permanent hearing loss later in life than would be produced by those same sounds alone, " Dennis McFadden, professor of psy- chology, said. McFadden cited work- related noises such as jackhammers and airplane engines and leisure sounds such as those from headphones and " boom boxes " as potentially harmful. When someone is exposed to an intense sound for more than a second or so, some temporary hearing loss does occur, the psychologist said. But McFadden ' s experiments show that if the person has been taking moderate doses of aspirin for two days or long- er, intense sounds will produce more temporary hearing loss than normal. For example, for a person who took 12 aspirin tablets per day for two days, a sound that ordinarily produces 14 decibels of temporary hearing loss would produce 18-27 decibels of loss, McFadden said. McFadden said that eye color was another important factor of reaction to intense sounds, although most people are unaware of it. People with light-colored eyes are more suscep- tible than people with dark eyes to both temporary and permanent hearing loss after exposure to intense sound. " This fact has been known for some time, and while it is not fully understood, the presumption is that dark eyes are correlated with high melanin density elsewhere in the body including the inner ear - and that melanin plays a role in the processes of recovery from ex- posure to intense sounds, " he said. The psychologist said that millions of people routinely take aspirin in higher doses than were used in his experiments, " and it is possible that such people are even more vulner- able to these effects. " In addition to aspirin, McFadden had tested antihistamines and anti- inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. These drugs coupled with intense sound demonstrated a much smaller effect on hearing than does aspirin. " So people who need to take an anti-inflammatory drug do have a choice, " he said. " Aspirin (which is acetylsalicylic acid) and other salicy- lates are the cuplrit -- not all anti- inflammatory drugs. " He suggested that people either take an alternative drug or try to avoid exposure to in- tense sound when taking aspirin in moderate doses. If that is impossible, they should wear ear plugs. McFadden said that it had long been known that aspirin and other salicylates can affect the auditory sys- tem even when taken in modest doses. " What was not known was whether an ear altered by aspirin also was more vulnerable to the effects of intense sound, and that is what we set out to establish, " he said. The research was being conducted in conjuction with Craig Champlin, assistant professor of speech commu- nication, Beverly Wright, graduate student, and Edward Pasanen, re- search associate, under a Claude D. Pepper Award of Excellence from the National Institute for Deafness and Other Communication Disor- ders. " We only know rudimentary things about how the brain, eyes and ears work, " McFadden said. " We are trying to trick nature into revealing her secrets.

" In the 35 years that I ' ve taught, I ' ve never had a blue Monday . . . or Tuesday, or.... " Benitez was born in Cuba and spent a great deal of his life in South America, living in such coun- tries as Argentina, Brazil, Panama and Venezuela, as well as Spain. He received his doctorate from the Uni- versity of Havana in Cuba and a li- cense in philosophy from the Uni- versity of Madrid, along with two masters ' degrees and one Ph.D. in the United States. Loving to work with undergrad- uates, he was one of the few senior professors that did most of his teach- ing to them. Other classes focused on multicultural education and schools in society. One of the highlights of his mul- ticultural classes were the banquets the students put together. Everyone was assigned a nation to represent through costume, food and even dance. Benitez recalled that he " had to teach the dance ' The Chicken ' one semester. " Most recently, Benitez finished a manuscript entitled The History of the First Secondary School in the American Continent. Researched for five years, the 300 page book was also being considered in the United States, while the translation to Spanish would be published in Mexico City. Benitez plans to start a new book on the early history of elementary ed- ucation on the American continent, which would take around two years to complete. Besides commuting from San Mar- cos every day, Benitez enjoyed every- thing from traveling to Europe every year to cooking, swimming, hiking and reading. " I love teaching and enjoy talking with my students, " he said. Benitez recalled one of his most memorable classes: " I bent down in class and boom . . . my pants ripped off! Luck- ily it was near the end of class, so five students had to escort me to my car. Teaching is a great profession. " Deborah V.

Franklin B.Johnson, professor of civil and architectural engineer- ing, originally dreamed of opening his own firm as a consulting engineer. After earning his master ' s degree at the University, Johnson went to work as a project engineer in Houston, from where he traveled as an advisor to various sites in Mexico and Brazil. Shortly thereafter, he received a call from the University asking him to teach as an assistant professor for the Department of Architectural Engi- neering. " I guess you could say that I ended up getting in over my head. I saw the handwriting on the wall and decided that if I was going to enter the ac- ademic world, I had better have the credentials, so I came back to UT and finished my doctorate, " Johnson said. That was the beginning of a suc- cessful, 35-year career in education. Many of his former students had be- come well-known civil engineers, professors and presidents of engi- neering firms. " I have a reputation for being Training Student Consumers Charles Walbridge " When I was in Dr. Hoyer ' s class, we got to partic- ipate in a market- ing study he was working on. (Since) it had to do with consumer product prefer- ences, Dr. Hoyer trans- formed an office into a mock grocery store. We carried a shopping basket inside, and chose products among the various product lines, " How- ard Ungerleider, marketing senior, said. Wayne Hoyer, associate professor of marketing, had been at the University for six years before becoming tenured. Since 1983, he had taught a promotional mar- keting class where he dis- cussed one of his research specialties consumer de- cision-making. Along with this class, Hoyer continued his consumer re- search on such topics as dynamic de- cision-making through the use of de- cision hueristics. As Hoyer explained, " After people have gone through an extensive search and evaluation for the correct answer in a certain situation, they don ' t have to go through it again the next time. They just base their decision on their previous decision, if it was correct. " With a collection of more than 600 compact discs, Hoyer considered mu- sic his main hobby. " I ' m an avid col- lector of music. Some ' 60s, but main- ly rock-n-roll, jazz and new age, " he said. He liked to work out three times a week, and he enjoyed trav- eling. After receiving both his under- graduate and graduate degrees at Purdue University, Hoyer finished his graduate studies with a disser- tation on contraceptive decision- making to help combat unwanted teenage pregnancies. Hoyer was the faculty advisor for the University of Texas chapter of the American Marketing Associa- tion, and had received numerous awards from the faculty and students throughout the years. He felt that the University " has a lot to offer in terms of academics and social oppor- tunities. I think it ' s a wonderful cam- pus. Kenton Dee Johnson strict with my classes, but I want them to really learn something. When they finally do, it makes me extremely proud. Earning the re- spect and recognition of my students and colleagues is quite a pleasure in itself, " Johnson said. Johnson even earned the recogni- tion of the Architectural Honor So- ciety for his work and became its first honorary faculty member. He also is involved in what he calls " forensic engineering. " " When projects go haywire or con- struction collapses, I am frequently called in as an expert witness. I have to admit it ' s a fun challenge to ' cross swords ' with the lawyers, " Johnson said. His inspiration to enter the world of architectural engineering came from his travels as a first lieutenant with the 157th Regimental Combat Team during the four and a half years that he served in World War II. The architecture that he saw in France and Germany gave him a greater respect for the field. " Europe has many beautiful struc- tures, especially the bridges. The de- sign is pure engineering but so art- fully beautiful that it encouraged me to decide that that was what I even- tually wanted to do, " Johnson said. In 1989, Johnson had recently re- turned from a reunion trip with his World War II regiment through the areas of France and Germany where they had seen combat. " The reception that we received was remarkable. We were treated like heroes and offered flag ceremo- nies and dinners of honor in every town. After 45 years it made us feel as if we ' d been wanted after all, " Johnson said. Johnson had decided to retire from education at the end of the 1989-1990 long term, concluding his 35 years in academics at the Uni- versity of Texas. " Right now I ' m ready to spend my time traveling the world with my wife, Patricia, and playing a lot of golf, " Johnson said. Teresa Simpson Academic Report 101 Initially hired in 1975 to direct a UT program on child abuse and neglect at the Resource Center, Rosalie Ambrosino later became an associate professor in social work and director of that de- partment ' s undergraduate program. Ambrosino received her undergraduate degree in so- cial work at the University of Minnesota, her master ' s de- gree at Antioch University, and her doctorate in social work at the University. Before she came to the University, Ambrosino was a social worker in Minnesota for eight years, working in schools with child abuse vic- tims and families. Ambrosino moved to Austin both for the " good educational program " at the University and to head the University ' s Resource Center pro- grams, where she said she dealt with policy and organizations instead of Informing UT of Social Issues individuals. She said she got into teaching be- cause she liked working with stu- dents. " They are challenging, " she " [Students] are challenging. They stimulate me to learn more about myself and the issues concerning all of us. " Rosalie Ambrosino said. " They stimulate me to learn more about myself and the issues concerning all of us. It ' s also fun to watch them grow and develop as I do too. " Ambrosino has taught such classes as Child Abuse and Neglect, Chil- dren of Disruptive Families, Human Behavior and the Social Environ- ment, Research Methods and Intro- duction to Social Welfare. She said she wanted to raise her student ' s awareness about social work issues and have them learn about themselves. " I want them to be confronted with their own feelings and attitudes, " she said. To accomplish this, Ambrosino said her students must feel free in the classroom setting to trust, take risks and ask questions. " There ' s no such thing as a stupid question, " she said. Adding that her class offered no magic answers to society ' s problems, Ambrosino said she did believe that if " people work together they can figure out a strategy and make a dif- ference. " " I try to offer my students the tools to solve problems so that no matter what comes along, they can handle it, " she said. " I want my stu- dents to be able to have enough con- fidence in themselves to problem solve when difficult situations arise. " -Julie Reeves PHARMACIST PROMOTES PREVENTION fe ; -- ' Aiiiit ' lifs Sthlk kcnrirdcr " It sure beats shoveling snow, " Carlton Erickson, professor of pharmacy, said when asked what he liked about Austin. On a more se- rious note, he said it was " one of the nicest cities in the nation. " Erickson was born and raised in Michigan, where he earned his bach- elor ' s degree in pharmacy at Ferris State College. From there, he went on to receive his doctorate from Purdue University in Indiana. He moved his way up from assistant to professor at the University of Kansas until he was recruited by the Uni- versity of Texas in 1978. Erickson taught a class on disease prevention at UT. " It developed about five years ago in response to my perception that pharmacy students and pharmacists need to know something about prevention of disease rather than just treating it once the disease started, " Erickson said. " Wellness is getting to be a very b ig part of the medical concept. Wellness can save people a lot of suf- fering and a lot of money, including insurance companies, " he said. Erickson ' s interest in chemical de- pendency grew out of his research on alcohol and the brain ' s chemical mechanisms. He said that pharma- cists " are in a prime situation in pharmacy to observe people who are having trouble with drugs, and they should be able to tell when people are abusing drugs. He could have continued in his profession in academics, industry or government, but preferred teaching at a major university because it was the " best challenge and it best uni- and matched my interest; and at a versity you get both research teaching. And I enjoy both. " Erickson ' s hobbies included rac- quetball and a professional hobby of " trying to tell people how important it is to do research in this field, be- cause funding is so poor when com- pared to funding for cancer research or muscular dystrophy research. " But Erickson ' s major message was that alcoholism and drug addiction are " brain diseases, " not just abuse. " It is a malfunction of brain neu- rochemistry. A person can ' t stop it anymore than a person can stop hav- ing epilepsy, " Erickson said. He attributed much of his success to hard work and the ability to main- tain enthusiasm about what he was doing. " The academic setting allows you to do a lot of different things without which a job would be bor- ing, " Erickson said.

This is the starship Painter, and our one- night mission is to enlighten, astound and stupefy. Captain ' s log, stardate Nov. 1, 1989, 8 p.m.: A room full of hungry eyes and ears awaits us. " Welcome to the Physics Circus, " Rory Coker, professor of physics, said. Amid the cheers and applause of more than 200 people of all ages packed into Painter Hall 2.124, Karl Trappe, research engineer, and Coker took center stage. The doctors delighted the crowd with their humorous comments. The " Hypnotic Rigidity " demonstration proved this point. Trappe laid down with his head on one chair and his feet on another. He balanced there precariously, giving the illusion of defying gravity. Coker then asked a volunteer to step on top of Trappe. " Be very careful where you place that first step! We would not want to injure the poor fellow, " Coker said. Al- though Trappe uttered a small grunt of discomfort, the demonstration was a suc- cess. The crowd laughed, oohed and aahed. The theme of the 1989 circus was " Something Old, Something New, " and the demonstration that everyone was waiting for was the Hurricane Pencil. Tension grew THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH: Demonstrating surface tension, Rory Coker, professor of physics, blows a clear plastic barrier off the bottom of an inverted glass. as the experiment was announced and the equipment, made up of a long tube and a fire extinguisher, was wheeled in. The de- vice was to fire a pencil through a solid piece of wood. " This is a very dangerous experiment because we have not tried it before, " Trappe said. The crowd took one last gulp and then there was a loud pop. Amazingly, the pencil was now inextricably stuck in the board. " I spent most of the first semester de- signing the Hurricane Pencil, " Erik Pear- son, pre-business freshman, said. " It was really very easy to design. You could make one in your home with things that are just lying around the house. " " I have been to the circus before and I found this one just as interesting as the ones before, " Ben Eberly, a University alumnus, said. This was one of the mildest reactions; overall, the crowd walked away in stunned silence. Captain ' s log, stardate Nov. 1, 1989, 10 p.m.: once again we have accomplished our mission. The audience leaves with the sense that the hour-long wait for seats was well worth the time spent. Jim Cinocca photo by Hannes Hacker Academic Report 103 Promotini Good Healtl " It ' s very rewarding to work directly with people, " Dr. Janet Allan, assistant professor of nursing, said, " to help people help them- selves. " With a master ' s in public health nursing, Allan direct- ed an adult nurse practition- ers program for more than 10 years at the University of California. While health pro- motion was her main focus, her Ph.D. work at Berkeley was in medical anthropology. " Every discipline needs to grow and continue to develop, " Allan said. " The discipline of nursing is not only academic as in research, but also pro- fessional as in the aspect of taking care of people to improve their life. " A main area of her research ex- amined weight management in wom- en. " Out of 72 white women, " Allan said, " I measured women ' s experi- ences with weight throughout life and how they handle gaining it. " Al- lan had just completed a second study looking at weight management in black women. " Even though these studies are published in various academic jour- nals, research is primarily used to build knowledge within our field, " she said. Supervising five doctoral students was yet another aspect of Allan ' s life. " I can ' t say enough good things about her, " nursing doctoral candi- date Jean McSweeney, said. " She is extremely supportive and will go out of her way to help. " Most importantly, Allan was a Project Transitions board member responsible for policy on residents, staff and volunteers at the hospice. " Project Transitions is an Austin res- idence for people in the final stages of AIDS, " she said. Allan planned to co-teach with Dr. Beverly Hall, pro- fessor of nursing, a course called In- terdisciplinary Perceptions on AIDS the first such course in the nation. " Nursing, for me, is an exciting time, " Allan said. " I ' m very happy I chose this profession. " Deborah V. Wolantejus photo by Hannes Hacker DELICATE CREATION Crysta Lozano, music sophomore, tries out a freshly-made reed in her oboe while Richard Blair, music professor, listens. In addition to oboe and recorder instruction, Blair taught a reed-making class for oboists. As the smallest of the double-reed instru- ments, the oboe was the harder to make reeds for than either English horn or basoon, Blair said. In his estimation, only one out of three reeds were usable. The process started with cane imported from Europe, which was cut and folded after being soaked in water, Blair explained. After the ends were tapered, the reed was folded over a corked brass or silver tube and secured by brightly-colored string ( " that ' s the only variation we have " ). The folded end was snipped, leaving a small hole between the two halves of reed. The cane was then honed down with a beveled knife to the proper con- tour of thick and thin areas. The final stage was to actually play it by itself and on an oboe, making adjustments as necessary. THE CREATIVE PROCESS It was 8 a.m. and Taylor Dayne was belting out a soul- ful tune on the clock radio. Throughout Austin, stu- dents jumped right out of bed and headed for the shower, knowing that in an hour or two they would be out of class and back in bed. But for some art students, not one, not two, but four hours of class loomed ahead. What was it like to have to start the day with a four- hour class? " Although my class was so long, it really did go by quickly .. especially since I didn ' t have to sit in a desk and take notes, " Sandy Pennington, ed- ucation sophomore, said. " You ' re doing something that ' s fun. " Students this optimistic about their classes most likely had instructors like Susan Whyne. Whyne strove to create a sense of relaxation in her classroom, encouraging her students to develop a creative eye. Accomplished artist and associate professor of art, Whyne served as a role model for her students. Her achievements, which included paint- ings displayed throughout Texas and in New York, represented the success that an artist could achieve through determination, discipline and self- awareness. The Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture in New York pro- vided the basis for her art education; graduate school at San Francisco State followed. Whyne recalled that school was tough, but she enjoyed the experiences she encountered. " The constant challenge of difficult problem-solving and aesthetics in various artistic media remain vividly in my mind, " Whyne said. In the classroom, she had her stu- dents call her Susan, which helped to create the relaxed atmosphere that she wanted the students to experi- ence. " Seeing my students enjoy art and the creative process adds to the satisfaction that I feel in my teaching career, " Whyne said. So maybe four hours of class wasn ' t so bad. Kelly Baldwin !

These individuals ' genuine en- thusiasm for teaching was exempli- fied by the opinions of William Powers, professor of law. After graduating from Harvard Law School and teaching at the Uni- versity of Washington Law School, Powers arrived at the University of Texas in the fall of 1978. When he was not teaching in his specialties, tort law and product liability, Powers continued to practice in the private sector. " I do a fair amount of consulting and litigation on the outside. I also do some appellate work now, and I think that all of that experience in the ' real world, ' if you will, is very useful teaching law, although I ' d say about pne-third of law professors go straight into teaching, " he said. Powers said the size of the law school allowed it to offer courses not available at other schools. " We can offer enrichment courses from com- parative law to specialized business law courses, like our mergers and acquisitions course, " he said. Since law classes were conducted using the Socratic method, by which students were asked to explain the significance of material discussed and to defend their position in a dialogue with the instructor, Powers said that class participation in large rooms was not as limited as in a conventional lecture. There was even room for personal interaction. " There ' s a sense of connection in- tellectually that you don ' t find in a lecture, " Powers said. While some instructors had a spe- cific set of milestones and a schedule for reaching them, Powers didn ' t share that view of the future. " If you asked what would I like to be doing over the next three to five years, it would be a variety of things. It would be teaching, and continuing to do scholarship. I want to take my jurisprudence course and write a book from that, but I don ' t have a single issue or goal over the next five years. I ' ll just keep doing what I ' m doing, " he said. The desire to continue at UT Law, despite several offers of positions at other law schools, was indicative of the strong feelings Powers had for this particular teaching environ- ment. " From time to time I get ap- proached about working elsewhere, but I like it here, " Powers said. " It ' s a very good group of faculty and a very good group of students. It ' s a place where scholarship and teaching are taken very seriously, and a very pleasant and supportive place to be a faculty member. " James P. O ' Shea III Academic Report 105 UT Down Under Taking the Lone Star to the Outback Naturalized And the winner is ... the UT Edward A. Clark Center for Australian Studies. After receiving a three-year, $60,000 grant from the U.S Information Agency in September 1988, the center began plans for a faculty exchange program with the University of Sydney. Over the course of three years, five UT professors planned to spend one semester in Sydney, while simultaneously, five pro- fessors from Sydney would teach at UT. The co-directors of the UT center, Amer- ican studies assistant professor Desley Deacon and government professor John Higley, each spent several years at the Australian National University before com- ing to Austin. Higley said the program was devised to teach students about the par- allels between the two countries, including similar histories and a common language. However, Neville Meaney, the first Aus- tralian participant who arrived Jan. 9, de- cided to emphasize the differences be- tween the two. " The differences between the two countries are more important than the similarities. For example, America was settled by Puritans and had a revolution which helped separate it from England; whereas, Australia was originally populated by convicts and never had a revolution to rid itself of the English socio-political in- fluence, " Meaney said. All five professors who planned to par- ticipate came from the College of Liberal Arts: Emily Cutrer of American studies, Steven Feld of anthropology, Bernth Lindfors of English, Richard Pells of his- tory, and Higley of government. Professors were selected by their in- terest in the program as well as by in- vitation. " Brian Levack, chairman of the Department of History, and John Higley just asked me if I was interested in the program. I had been in Australia for a couple of weeks in 1986, and said I would like to go again, " Pells said. The exchange ' s aim was for the pro- fessors to accurately relate their field ' s influence on the other society. " It ' s amazing how much of an impact America has on Australia. They have an Australian version of 60 Minutes with three 20-minute sections and the clock ticking, as well as a Good Morning Australia, " Pells said. Meaney tried to teach the reverse impact by showing one of his classes Crocodile Dundee, then asking students to respond in an essay what their perception of Australia was. " One student entitled his essay, ' Crocodile Dundee: The John Wayne of Australia, ' " Meaney said. Obviously, the two sets of professors had many things to clear up about the two countries ' perceptions of each other. Yet that was the exact intent of the program in the first place. Right, mate?

The Lone Star State also had an eniwHuuo interesting range of animals, from armadillos to whooping cranes. Texas was a geo- graphical jackpot, and Geog- raphy 305 teacher Robin Doughty met the challenge that studying its diversity presented. In England, Doughty, pro- fessor of geography, learned the importance of punctual- ity and discipline. Originally from Yorkshire, he came to the University of California at Berkley to get his Ph.D. in geography.

What attracted Doughty was " the historical geography in Texas by looking at the ways Texans have transformed their landscapes and perceived it as a whole. " But his re- search in geography was not limited to Texas; he also had traveled to many regions including Iceland, East Africa, Egypt and Brazil. Doughty hoped to interest all types of students in geography, regardless of their majors. " I like challenging them to think about ways of living, " he said. He often used past expe- riences as examples in class. " He ' s interesting because he refers to places he ' s been, and he ' s funny! He motivates the class by keeping their attention through personal ex- perience, " Kim Hoyt, geography sophomore, said. The author of three books about Texas, Doughty knew more about the state than most native Texans. He was involved in conservation, and focused on the whooping crane in his latest book. by Cathy Mires QUINN ENJOYS ROLE AS PROFESSOR, DEAN If one were to ask Mike Quinn, associate dean of the College of Communication, how he chose journalism as a career, he would probably respond, " My choice was go- ing to work on the division newspaper or staying in the rifle company (in Korea), and I decided to get into jour- nalism. " Quinn was in training for battle the winter of 1951 when the choice was posed to him. His unit was digging holes in the snow for tents when a certain Sgt. Kenneth Farley called him into his of- fice. It turned out that he and Farley had attended the same high school in Chatta- nooga, Tenn., and they had shared the same English teacher there. Farley felt that if Quinn could pass that class he was good enough to work as a reporter for the division newspaper. Quinn agreed and joined the Cavalier that day. Several years later Quinn trans- ferred to UT and majored in jour- nalism. He was managing editor of the Daily Texan and, after gradua- tion, moved to the Dallas Morning News. In 1966 he returned to UT to work and attend law school. Quinn had close ties to the Uni- versity and Austin throughout his life, and had always been proud of his students and alumni whom he had taught for many years. Choosing whether he preferred his job as dean or teaching was a hard decision for Quinn. " I enjoy teaching, but the dean job allows you to do things that from a procedural standpoint . . . would be important to the college as a whole, " he said. As for the present, Quinn was tenured and planned to remain dean until his retirement. Jeannine Caracciolo thrives on law school atmosphere through a " confluence of events " he became a Teaching Fellow at the Harvard Law School. " It was to be for a one-year term, but I ' d been there maybe six or 12 weeks and I thought, ' My gosh! If you could get paid for this for a lifestyle what a wonderful varied career this would be! ' " Johanson then obtained his mas- ter ' s in law and began teaching. His first full-time job was his current po- sition at the University, where he came in 1963 largely because several visiting faculty at Harvard were from the UT School of Law. " They had a sort of inside view of what Mr. Johanson ' s teaching poten- tial was. And it ' s very fortunate, be- cause this is an outstanding law school, " he said. During 1989, Johanson taught Wills and Estates, a first-year course, and an advanced course in estate planning. The books he found in use when he started teaching these courses left something to be desired, and so he and Jesse Dukemenier, professor of law at the University of California at Los Angeles, set out to build a better mousetrap, writing their own text on wills. " It ' s a well-received book because it has something unusual for a law book: it has humor in it. And it ' s written with a somewhat deft style, for which I must give credit to Mr. Dukemenier, " Johanson said. Working at UT has provided on- going challenges for Johanson. " I had the good fortune to go to a university where even engineers were expected to be literate and ed- ucated. Regardless of one ' s field, the ability to express yourself effectively is an extremely valuable trait. " And that is one of the concerns that I would have with respect to the University of Texas: I ' m fearful of students who go through the Uni- versity, or any university, where the majority of tests are machine-graded, because then the emphasis is going to be on rote memorization and regur- gitation, which doesn ' t develop the student ' s reasoning skills, " he said. Johanson said he felt privileged to be a part of the UT Law School. " We have extremely talented young peo- ple, and some not-so-young people, so it ' s a very stimulating atmosphere. It never gets dull. I look forward each day to going to class, " he said. " I don ' t worry about what I ' m go- ing to do tomorrow.

O ' Shea III Academic Report 107 Juel works with children in literacy development Have you ever read a story to a toddler or watched a 4- year-old struggle to make sense out of written words? Did you wonder how chil- dren learn to read or even speak so quickly? " Adults don ' t recall how they learned to read and write; they take for granted the process they under- went, " Connie Juel, profes- sor of curriculum and in- struction, said. " It ' s hard for us to realize how much goes into teaching children and teaching them correctly. " As a literacy acquisition specialist, Juel had worked at the University for 12 years. She had taught classes ranging from theoretical ideas on how children learn to read and write to actual field-based classes that tutor children with severe reading problems. A main accomplishment for Juel was her longitudinal study on the cognitive and classroom factors that affect reading and writing develop- ments of first through fourth grad- ers. She spent three years teaching first and fourth graders in California before coming to Texas. While her work was published in a 1988 issue of the Journal of Educational Psychology, it is now being processed into a book. " The University is lucky to have her, " Ann Hall, education doctoral candidate, said. " Dr. Juel is extreme- ly knowledgable; she ' s willing and able to teach and make students un- derstand. " Her latest responsibility lay within the media. Juel has been an advisor for Sesame Street for four years. " I act as a consultant for the reading and writing aspects of the show, " she said. " They send me videos and I critique them to best suit proper learning for the children watching. " She was also involved in creating a graduate show for Sesame Street. This program would be aimed at children between the ages of six and nine and would air in 1991. " I enjoy working with children in their learning development, " Juel said. " Kids who fail to learn to read and write in the first grade had a 90 percent chance of still being a poor reader at the end of elementary school. " The children themselves had to learn, while teachers were there to lead and encourage them with proper literacy techniques, she said. " It is very important to see that today ' s children are taught right and one doesn ' t slip by that can ' t read or write. " Deborah V.Wolantejus In translation: With the advent of glas- nost and a new world image, an interest in the Soviet Un- ion was sparked. One would think that a good place to start a study of the U.S.S.R. was Russian literature, but unfortunately, it was not that simple. Tatyana Tolstaya, visiting senior lecturer in Slavic lan- guages, has seen the problem but knows there is little she can do about it. " Old Russian literature is well translated (quantitatively), but contem- porary is not, " Tolstaya said. While a good background in old literature is important, she said, there is also much to be gained from the new. The lack of translations therefore hinders learning. photo by Annelies Schlickenrieder Throwing Away Telltale Information " Ideas for stories are everywhere, " Gale Wiley, assistant professor of journalism, said, and to prove it he took his production class for UT Week in Review down the Drag in search of stories. The class first stopped outside of Harwood Travel to look through trash. " The stuff [people] throw away is almost as interesting as what they keep, " Wiley explained. Before the group was confronted by a Harwood employee, they found a syringe in a cardboard box. The box had probably been dropped off there by a transient, Wiley said. Wiley then led his students further down Guadalupe Street to discover more story ideas. 108 Academic Report anslation; place 1 t traiure, but 1 " ' w is little she ...; dl translatec tu " but coniem- " ::::. . - ,.,, s therefore jfefo Tolstaya comments on American education Worse, the quality of even the translated works is not high. Most of Tolstaya ' s students cannot read Rus- sian and therefore do not catch im- portant nuances. " American trans- lation (of Russian) is a black-and- white translation of color, " said Tol- staya. Tolstaya said she has seen liter- ature ' s value not only for what it teaches about others, but what it teaches about oneself. She began reading at the age of three and con- tinued to read all she could through her teens. Later, after completing her studies in Leningrad and settling down to work at a publishing house, she discovered something more. " Reading was my hobby and later it became a therapy, " Tolstaya said. She had begun writing and she found it added a certain stability to her life. " Creativity helps us establish balance between ourselves and (he world, " she said. Writing seemed to give shape to what she felt and helped to nail things down in her life, she said. It was for this reason and not the pay that Tolstaya began writing. In Rus- sia, publishing houses would pay by the page: Tolstaya ' s short stories such as (he ones in her new book On the Golden Porch would not, there- lore, have been very profitable. Tolstaya said she thinks Austin is nice, and she has enjoyed seeing the states on her travels. However, she said she believes the American ed- ucation system is not strict enough. She felt more foreign history and foreign literature was needed and that American students simply had not had enough variety in their cur- riculum. Students entered her class with great interest but knew nothing about Russia itself, and therefore could not understand the literature. " There can ' t be a study of Russian literature without (a) study of Rus- sian history, " said Tolstaya. Evidently Americans were farther from an understanding of Russian than commonly thought. Tolstaya said she feels classes such as hers have been helpful, but they are only the tip of the iceberg. If students want to gain a broader grasp of the world, they need much more diversity in their studies. This and a little more Tolstoy would do wonders as far as Tolstaya was concerned. -Jeannine Caracciolo GOING BACK IN HISTORY: In Search of the Origins of World War II Hitler, Nazi Gestapo, D-Day . . . World War II. To 34 UT students, these words symbolized a rare opportunity. From all fields of study and all walks of life, the students were chosen for the Normandy Student Scholar Program. The program was developed for stu- dents as a means of instruction on the second World War. The students enrolled in four courses: French Cultural and In- Sponsored and funded by the University and the U.S. Committee for the Battle of Normandy Museum, the tour allowed the 34 students to visit numerous battle sites.

There were several reasons why people desired to be part of this program. roommate read of the program in The Daily Texan. Jimenez asked for an extension, wrote his essay over the weekend and turned in his application on Monday. Others deemed the trip advantageous to their degree plan. " It fit my interests - what I wanted to do. It will give me a better grasp of what other cultures are like. That will be useful for international law, " Chris- topher Murphy, finance junior, said. 34 UT students journey to Caen, France to analyze the political, cultural, social and economic aspects of the Second World War tellectual History 1880-1944; Origins of the Second World War; WWII: Leadership, Pol- itics, Strategy; and 20th Century Journal- ism History. Time devoted to these classes was di- vided between the University and the Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum in Caen, France. The students focused on the events which led up to World War II and the aftermath as well as actual battles, and the program analyzed the political, economic, social and cultural aspects of the war. " I thought the program would provide a great opportunity to study World War II with great professors and excellent class- mates. It was a good way to go to France, practice my French and get involved with the culture, " Julio Jimenez, civil engineer- ing senior, said. Jimenez, a foreign exchange student from Costa Rica, decided to stay at the University one more semester to be part of this program. He almost missed his chance. The night before the deadline, his Whatever the reason might have been for participating in the program, 34 stu- dents toured the historic battlegrounds of a war which tore through Europe so many years ago. Anthony Stout, president of the U.S. Committee for the Battle of Normandy Mu- seum, said he hoped to expand the pro- gram to a national level, so that students from all over the country could have the same opportunity. Catherine Schlech UT Faculty Produces Album for Kids Almost every Walt Disney animated movie had children singing the words to the songs along with the char- acters. A new Walt Disney Records album hoped to draw the same response in children, containing many songs parents had been crooning to their children for generations. The album, titled " Playtime Favorites " had a strong UT connection, for the professional arranger- producer was Gary Powell, specialist in the Department of Music. Another connec- tion was that eight of the 13 singers were either current UT stu- dents or graduates who have sung in Powell ' s campus performing group known as Ensemble 109. Powell said that his role as pro- ducer meant " packaging a song mu- sically so that is appears in its best light. " He was an experienced hand concerning children ' s albums, for he had produced six of them for Joe Scruggs, a nationally known chil- dren ' s singer-songwriter from Aus- tin. Powell referred to the Disney rec- ord as an " activity album, " designed to help younsters coordinate move- ments with songs. An instructional booklet for parents accompanied each cassette or compact disc. Among the 20 children ' s songs on the 40-minute album were tradition- al favorites such as " Hickory Dickery Dock, " " I ' m a Little Teapot, " " Where is Thumbkin? " and even a calypso version of " Itsy Bitsy Spi- der. " Powell wrote two original songs for the album: " The Right Move for Me " and " The Beehive. " Musical accompaniment was provid- ed by guitars and by computer- generated sounds made by using syn- thesizers and samplers. The singers in Powell ' s Ensemble 109 class got experience through performances and learning to handle the demands of commercial music the kind sung in recording studios for jingles or background music.

But an envi- ronmentally safe purification process at the University was aimed at meeting stringent new clean-up regulations for the disposal of waste. " The goal is to completely destroy toxic organic wastes within a totally enclosed sys- tem which produces no harmful substances to be re- leased into the environ- ment, " Earnest Gloyna, civil engineering professor, said. Gloyna was the principle re- searcher on the project. Known as supercritical wa- ter oxidation, the process subjected wastewater to both high heat and intense pressure in the presence of oxygen. Experiments at UT ' s Center for Separations Research involved temperatures of 705 degrees Fahr- enheit and 3,200 pounds per square inch pressure, Gloyna said. " Under such conditions, oily mix- tures become soluble and wastes are destroyed exceedingly fast, " Gloyna said. " All this destruction can be ac- complished at temperatures far be- low those required for incineration of similar wastes. Also, the operation is almost silent. " Gloyna said his research team, which included about 15 graduate students, had documented 99 per- cent destruction of organic material in a matter of seconds. Based on pi- lot-scale reactors at Balcones Re- search Center, Gloyna said it was possible to design and construct fa- cilities " to meet the ultimate Envi- ronmental Protection Agency goals of virtually zero discharge of unwant- ed wastes into the environment. " Supercritical oxidation was unlike many purification systems based on large amounts of contaminated wa- ter, Gloyna said; some of the older treatment and disposal systems were costly, inefficient and might have ex- uded unpleasant odors. Supercritical oxidation yields a stable residual ash, which could even be recycled into building materials or applied to land. " The cost of meeting tough new clean-up regulations necessitates the development of new technologies, " Gloyna said. " This project is another example of education, research and technology transfer working cooper- atively to meet the emerging needs of the state of Texas.

Were you aware of the ef- fect of industrialization on the environment? Why should these things have concerned students? Zoology lecturer Craig Far- quhar, a Biology 30 1M in- structor, believed all stu- dents should be made aware of these concerns. " It ' s my duty to show the problem of progress in re- gards to the environment, " he said. Farquhar first decided to study biology in high school. " I gravi- tated towards biol- ogy; it was either art or biology, and I figured biology would pay the bills! " He obtained his masters from the University of Texas at San Antonio and his Ph.D. from Texas A M. He credited his college experience with helping him develop emotional and physical independ- ence and self-reliance. Farquhar ' s interests were mostly health-oriented. He was an avid cy- clist, " just riding really hard, but I ' m not really into competition, " he said. He was into photography and healthy foods, and enjoyed playing guitar, drawing and listening to reg- gae music. " I catch the good reggae performers when they come into town, " Farquhar said. He even had a large poster of Bob Marley in his office right above his bicycle. Conservation of the environment was Farquhar ' s most crucial concern. He advocated limiting industrial growth in sensitive natural habitats and increased energy efficiency. To help these causes, he promoted re- cycling and made his students aware of environmental problems. Farquhar said he enjoyed teaching lower-division biology because it gave him a greater freedom to in- terject his own philosophy when ap- propriate. He liked to get to know his students and listen to them, even though the classes were large. " I ' m proud of my rapport with stu- dents. I ' m not a nonhuman body in front of the class, " Farquhar said. Biology senior Laura White said, " His casual attitude makes the ma- terial easier to understand. " Farquhar ' s appearance fit his be- liefs. Even at first glance, he was the epitome of his lifestyle: shaggy hair and a beard, tan safari shorts and sandals. He was a self-proclaimed " granola guy " with earnest interests in the state of the environment.

That word summed up the season for the Longhorns. Texas ' opening game was played in Denver, against the Hth-ranked Col- orado Buffaloes. The Horns ' only points came during the second quarter, as senior place kicker Wayne Clements made two field goals to make the final score 27-6, Colorado. Although at times the Texas offen- sive unit looked shaky, this may not have been an indication of a weak team. Colorado was the first team that Texas faced under the leadership of the new offensive coordinator, Lynn Amedee, and the young Texas team faced a stiff challenge in the Buffaloes. " I think we played them as good as anybody else did, " said freshman safety Lance Gunn. Two weeks after the loss to Colorado, the Longhorns arrived in Dallas to take on the SMU Mustangs for the first time since 1987. After a flat first half, Texas came back strong and crushed the hap- less Mustangs 45-13. Penn State marked the debut of freshman quarterback Peter Gardere, who replaced a beleaguered Mark Murdock late in the second quarter. Gardere twice drove the Longhorns the length of the field, once for a TD and again for field goal, but the Nittany Lions iced the game by blocking a Tex- as punt and recovering it in the end zone for a touchdown. Although six minutes remained in the game, the Texas offense sputtered and died. The final score was Penn State 16, Texas 12.

Af- ter a lethargic first half, the Longhorns went into the locker room having scored 10 points while allowing the Owls 17. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Texas trailed the dominating Owls 30-17. The Longhorns were able to engi- neer two scoring drives in the fourth quarter that culminated in a last-second diving effort by Gardere to put Texas over the top 31-30. The week following Texas ' narrow victory over the underrated Owls, they faced the Oklahoma Sooners. Going into the game, Texas was an 18-point underdog and was not considered to be a serious challenge. After two quarters of play, however, Texas proved to be in top form. Under the leadership of Pe- ter Gardere, Texas had managed to rack up 21 points to Oklahoma ' s 7. At the end of the third quarter, the score stood at Texas 21, Oklahoma 14. Only two minutes into the fourth quar- ter, Oklahoma was able to draw to with- in five points of the lead with a 30-yard field goal. With only 3:24 remaining on the clock, Oklahoma drove into the end zone to take the lead 21-24. On Texas ' last possession, Gardere mustered all the talents at his disposal, taking the ball on his own 34 and driving 66 yards in a series that culminated in a mirac- ulous diving catch by Johnny Walker to make the score 28-24 in Texas ' favor. The Sooners were unable to reply and Texas claimed victory. Facing Texas after the Horns ' grand performance against Oklahoma were the feared Arkansas Razorbacks. Again predicted to lose, the Longhorns turned professional conjecture into am- ateur speculation. The Texas offensive unit, led again by Peter Gardere, picked apart the clueless Razorback defense. 116 Football Colorado 6-27 SMU 45-13 Penn State 12-16 Rice 31-30 Oklahoma 28-24 Arkansas 24-20 Texas Tech 17-24 Houston 9-47 TCU 31-17 Baylor 7-50 Texas A M . 10-21 BLOCKING PENETRATION: Sophomore de- fensive back Graylin Johnson and a leaping senior defensive tackle Rocky Allen force down an Okla- homa player. photo by Hannes Hacker. CELEBRATING: After a sucessful play against the Oklahoma Sooners, senior defensive tackle Ken Hackemack raises his arms in salute. photo by George Bridges I At this point in the season, the Horns began to receive quite a bit of public attention, and -- for the first time in many years they broke the Top 25. But for the Longhorns, the roller coast- er had reached its peak and was about to begin its descent at breakneck speed. " We beat OU, and we beat Arkansas, and then we started to take things for granted, " senior defensive tackle Ken Hackemack said. " After Oklahoma and Arkansas, we got overconfident . . . we talked Cotton too soon, " offensive guard Stan Thomas said. It was a beautiful day in Austin when the Texas Tech Red Raiders came to town. The Longhorns struggled val- iantly to put points on the board and shut down Tech ' s impressive running back James Gray. Gardere was hard- pressed to get the Longhorns in the end zone; the defensive unit, still suffering from the previous week ' s injuries, was unable to stop the Red Raider defense. In the end, Texas fell to Tech, 24-17. The following week the Longhorns traveled to Houston to take on the Cou- gars. Texas held the Run and Shoot scoreless until late in the first half, when Ware finally broke the shackles of the Texas defense and exploded for a quick 14 points. Texas was felled by the Cou- gars by a score of 47-9. TCU was the next team to square off against the failing Longhorns. Against TCU, Gardere, still ailing from a shoul- der injury suffered during the Houston game, was replaced in the third quarter by senior Donovan Forbes. In the fourth quarter, the Longhorn offense finally came alive and was able to stifle the Horned Frogs 31-17. The Baylor Bears were the next team to visit Memorial Stadium. The Texas offense never go t on track and was plagued by four fumbles and four in- terceptions, two of which were re- turned for touchdowns. The final score was Baylor 50, Texas 7. It was the first win for the Bears in Austin since 1951. Texas went on the road for the final game of the season to take on the Ag- gies at Kyle Field. Texas allowed the Aggies only seven points in the first two quarters of play and at the half led 10-7. But the Longhorn offense was not able to score again as the Aggies overcame the deficit and rolled to 21-10 victory a fitting end to an inconsistent sea- son for the Longhorns. Rene Munoz I Football 117 HORNS FULFILL PREDICTIONS IN SWC It was a strange season for Texas football. Picked to finish fourth in the Southwest Conference, Texas surprised all the odds-makers not only by leading the SWC, but also by being ranked among the nation ' s Top 25. From these heights, Texas fell to the predicted fourth in the conference, where they finished the season. Youth stood out as the biggest reason for Texas ' inconsistency. Of 20 starters, only seven were seniors. " We were an extemely young team. When you have youth like that, it ' s hard to focus for 1 1 or 12 weeks, " junior middle linebacker Brian Jones said. In their first game, against the SMU Mustangs, the Longhorns played a poor first half, but came alive in the second half to score on their first two pos- sessions. Texas was noted more for their 20 penalties only two shy of the SWC record than for their play, but the team overcame the penalties to lambast the Ponies 45-13. The Rice game was traditionally a sure win for the Longhorns. Texas led the series 50-24-1, and the Owls had not won in the past 23 years. But the record almost changed in 1989 when the Owls visited Memorial Stadium. The Longhorns began the game slug- gishly, and at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Texas trailed the dom- inating Owls 30-17. But the revival of the Texas defense spurred a Texas comeback, and in the game ' s final 15 minutes, the Owls were held to only 8 yards total offense. The Longhorns ' of- fense was able to put together two fourth-quarter scoring drives that spelled the end for the Owls, and Texas won 31-30. Texas ' first real SWC competition came in a hard-fought contest against nationally ranked Arkansas. Gardere, coming off a phenomenal performance I against the Oklahoma Sooners, rein- forced his position as starting quarter- back by completing 16 of 20 passes for 247 yards. Senior wide receiver Tony Jones es- tablished a new school record for the number of pass reception yards by catching four passes for 1 14 yards, mak- ing his total 1,712. After their win over the Razorbacks, the Longhorns were riding high. They had toppled two nationally ranked teams, Oklahoma and Arkansas, and had, after a two-year hiatus, been rec- ognized by the national polls, being ranked 24th in the nation. Also, the Longhorns were in sole possession of first place in the SWC. Little did the Horns know they had reached the peak of their season. After a two week layoff, the Long- horns prepared to battle the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Elated by the wins over Oklahoma and Arkansas, Texas overlooked the formidable challenge WORKING FOR A GAIN: Freshman tailback Adrian Walker powers past a TCU defender. photo by George Bridges presented by the Tech team and was squelched 24-17 on the 20th anniver- sary of the Longhorns ' win over Ar- kansas for the 1969 National Cham- pionship. " Tech was our downfall, " freshman linebacker Anthony Curl said. " All we could do afterwards was try and pick ourselves back up. " The Horns headed east after their disappointing loss to Tec h to take on the much-heralded Houston Cougars and Heisman Trophy candidate Andre Ware. After restricting the Cougars to two first-quarter field goals, the Horns defense finally stumbled, and Ware ex- ploited the error for a fast 1 4 points late in the second quarter. Texas ' only points in the game came on three Wayne Clements field goals, and the final score was Houston 47, Texas 9. 1, 118 SWC After the loss to Houston, the Long- horns were ready for a confidence- builder. Unfortunately, the opportuni- ty was almost lost as Texas struggled against the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. This time it was Do- novan Forbes replacing a cold Peter Gardere who was able to engineer the Longhorns ' come-from-behind vic- tory. Texas was unable to mount any serious offensive drives until late in the third quarter, but in the fourth quarter, the Longhorn offense finally came alive and was able to stifle TCU 31-17. The Baylor Bears were the next team to visit Memorial Stadium. Baylor en- countered a sluggish and unprepared Texas team whose only scoring drive came late in the third quarter. Al- though the Texas defense played well, allowing only 66 yards total Bear of- fense in the first half, the Texas offense never got on track and was victimized by four fumbles and four interceptions, two of which were returned for touch- downs. The final score was 50-7 the first win for the Bears in Austin since 1951. Texas ' final match of the season pit- ted them against the Aggies in College Station. The Longhorns were able to stay with the Aggies for three quarters and led for the entire first half. The fact that the Longhorns were edged 21-10 did not give credit to both the offensive and defensive units, who played an ex- cellent game. The myriad of Texas pen- alties such as a flag for 12 men on the field that prevented Texas from taking possession of a fumbled punt in- side the Aggie 25 may have turned the tide of the game. Also, place kicker Wayne Clements who had kicked more three-pointers than any other kicker in SWC history missed two consecutive field goal attempts. " I feel that if we had been able to get those points, we would have broken their back, " said junior defensive end Oscar Giles. The loss to A M finished the season for the Longhorns. After leading the SWC and gaining national rank, the Longhorns stumbled and fell into the position the pre-season soothsayers had predicted: fourth. The Horns had, in defeating Oklahoma and Arkansas, showed their real potential, but the plague of youth and inexperience pre- vented them from fully exploiting this potential and had instead given the Longhorns the ugly ride of an up and down season.

After a disappointing sea- son in 1988, the team was full of hope. In their first game, the Longhorns suffered a discouraging loss (6-27) against the nationally ranked Colorado Buffaloes. However, during the game, Texas fans saw a glimpse of a young gun by the name of Peter Gardere, who eventually catapulted Texas into the ranks of the nation ' s top 25 college football teams. A third-generation Longhorn, Gardere came into the season projected as a third-string quarterback. Not much was expected of him: " He played better than we expected him to coming into the season, " offensive coordinator Lynn Amedee said. Physically, Gardere possessed all the attributes wanted in a collegiate quar- terback: mobility, size and strength. In the game against Oklahoma, faced with a crucial third-and-long situation, Gardere eluded a rush and scrambled for an 18-yard run and a first down. " I try not to think about the situation when I ' m in there. You really don ' t have time to, " Gardere said. Although he was a red-shirt freshman, his ma- turity belied his inexperience. But it wasn ' t until after the Texas-OU game that Texas fans truly acknowledged his talent. In the game against Oklahoma, Gardere completed 1 5 of 23 passes for a total of 144 yards. Moreover, he passed for two touchdowns with a connection to senior wide receiver Tony Jones and the miraculous winning throw to junior wide receiver Johnny Walker. FALLING BACK: Redshirt freshman quarter- back Peter Gardere fakes a handoff to freshman tailback Adrian Walker during a play-action pass. photo by Hannes Hacker 120 Quarterback .,.. PF: - t In one weekend, Gardere became the most celebrated player since Eric Met- calf. He was labeled " Peter the Great, " " Saint Peter, " a savior and a legend. " I wouldn ' t call myself a savior. Without the linemen, backfield and receivers we wouldn ' t have an offense, " Gardere said. Gardere ' s heroics didn ' t end against Oklahoma. The following week in Ar- kansas he directed a win over the Ra- zorbacks, completing 16 out of 20 pass- es for 247 yards and one 61 -yard touchdown. Unfortunately, Gardere had some difficulties maintaining his high level of performance. In the Houston game, he suffered a bruised shoulder. Although he started against the TCU Horned Frogs, his performance was less than impressive, as he completed 9 of 16 passes for only 21 yards. He was even- tually replaced by Donovan Forbes, who rallied Texas to a 31-17 come- from-behind victory. In the week preceding the Baylor game, the team was in the midst of a mild quarterback controversy. Forbes, who was honored as the Most Outstand- ing Southwest Offensive Player of the Week, was being considered as a start- er. However, Gardere eventually start- ed, and threw an errant pass that was intercepted and run back for a Baylor touchdown. Forbes, who later replaced Gardere, also had a pass intercepted for a touchdown. Baylor ' s 50-7 march over Texas was the lowest point in the Long- horns ' season. Besides the shoulder injury and the Baylor game, Gardere had a successful if not a productive year. He completed 58 percent of his passes for more than 1500 yards passing, the most ever for a UT freshman quarterback. With one year under his belt, Gardere would be expected to lead a much improved and experienced team in 1990. Johnny Walker, said he believed time was all Gardere needed. " For a freshman quar- terback, he ' s done well, " Walker said. " He ' s become a leader. He just needs more experience.

Senior Tony Jones, a two-time all-Southwest Conference wide receiver, and his counterpart, junior Johnny Walker, provided for a well-balanced passing at- tack for the Longhorns. The emergence of Johnny Walker was a surprise, for during his first two years at Texas, Walker nearly traded in his helmet and pads for a bat and glove. " I wasn ' t getting the ball like I wanted. I thought football was not my sport, " Walker said. A former major-league draft pick, Walker seriously contemplated pursu- ing a baseball career. " Baseball is my first love, and I love playing the game, " he said. However, he decided to remain with the football program after talking with both David McWilliams and of- fensive coordinator Lynn Amedee. " I had a talk with Coach Amedee and he told me he would spread the ball around. They would use my ability, " Walker said. As his playing time increased, so did his productivity. He surpassed former UT player Ben Proctor ' s old record of 43 catches in a year and came close to eclipsing Tony Jones ' season yardage mark of 838 yards. Walker ' s most memorable game came against the Oklahoma Sooners. With minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Walker snatched a 25-yard touchdown pass to secure a victory over the Sooners. " When I caught the ball, it was like BOOM . . . how do you like me now, " Walker said. In 1989, Walker was named to the All-Southwest Conference first team, and he also received high praises from Amedee. " He ' s an important part of our offense. He ' s better than good, an extremely big-time player, " Amedee said. While Walker took most of the lime- light in 1989, he was still shadowed by Tony Jones ' well-established fame. As a freshman, Jones appeared in eight games as a reserve receiver, catch- ing five passes for 88 yards. During his sophomore year, the Longhorns won a bid to play in the Bluebonnet Bowl, where Jones set a Bluebonnet record with 242 yards in pass receptions and was honored with the Most Valuable Player award. Jones ' junior year was just as spec- tacular, as he led the Southwest Con- ference with 20 yards per reception and went over 100 yards in four games. Unlike the previous two years, the coaches had some problems in 1989 in getting Jones involved in the offense. " The bad thing about Tony is we couldn ' t get him the ball this year, " Amedee said. To make matters worse, Jones sustained an ankle injury in the game against Texas Tech. " I was ex- pecting to have a better year, " Jones said. Although Jones ' vision of an All- American season never developed, he still dreamed of playing in the National Football League. " I have hopes of play- ing pro ball. If it happens, it happens, " he said. Whether or not Jones went on to play professional football remained to be seen, but one thing was certain: the University in 1990 lost one of its most prolific receivers ever to grace the field of Memorial Stadium. But with Johnny Walker as a rising star on the horizon, the team ' s future was far from bleak. The Longhorns could continue to ex- pect great things from its receivers.

The young team was unable to defend their national cham- pionship title, but they did fare quite well with an overall record of 27-10. The season opened with the Long- horns capturing first place in the South- west Texas State Invitational Tourna- ment. Game 1 started off rather slowly against the SWTS Bobcats, but the Longhorns won the match 15-9, 15-11 and 15-5, and went on to easily defeat La mar and Montana. It was question- able whether they would then survive the fourth match against Colorado, as the Longhorns lost the first two games before making an exciting comeback to win the match and the tournament. Still on a high from the SWTS In- vitational, Texas prepared to meet the dethroned national champs, the Rain- bow Wahines, in the Rainbow Invita- tional Tournament in Hawaii. The Horns were unable to maintain their winning streak and suffered a disap- pointing loss, in straight matches, to the top-ranked Wahines 3-15, 7-15 and 8- 15. Texas turned around and won a four-game match against Colorado State, but then lost out to No. 1 UCLA. The Longhorns placed third in the tournament and junior outside attacker Dagmara Szyszczak was selected to the all tournament team. The Lady Longhorns also placed in the Chicago Sportmart Classic tourna- ment by defeating No. 17 Penn State. With an initial loss to Illinois, they fin- ished third, and Szyszczak ' s perfor- mance, again, merited all-tournament team honors. In two matches, the out- side attacker had 17 kills and 23 digs. Following an upset victory to 19th- ranked San Diego State, the Longhorns began conference play against Baylor. The Horns bounced back from the San Diego loss, sweeping the match against the Bears, and were underway in main- taining an undefeated SWC record. Ex- cept for losses to Kentucky and rival Hawaii, the Lady Horn ' s initial triumph was followed by 15 more match wins. The mid-season was highlighted in a match against Texas Tech when the Horns claimed their 500th career vic- tory since their program ' s inception in 1974. In other tournament play, the Long- horns took first place in the Whataburger Invitational held in Aus- tin. The Lady Longhorns were victo- rious over Colorado for the second time in tournament play in an exciting five- game match. The Longhorns also de- feated Ohio State, in another five-game match, for the tournament win. Two UT players, sophomore middle blocker Janine Gremmel and setter Missy Kurt, made the all-tournament team. The Lady Horns came into the NCAA tournament reigning as national champions. They advanced as far as the South Region final, but lost in a dis- appointing defeat to the seventh- ranked UT-Arlington Mavericks. Tex- as ' loss ended three consecutive years of Final Four appearances. Although the team had not per- formed well in the national arena, the team ' s play was surprising, considering it ' s youth. With only two returning starters, Coach Mick Haley, in his 10th year at UT, faced quite a challenge in filling the four vacancies, but it was a challenge to be envied. Of his 14 play- ers, eight had been to the NCAA Final Four and four players had been to the event more than once. Nevertheless, Haley said he felt the team needed more time to mature.

We ' ve gone all around the country and have been compared to last year ' s team. We have more talent than last year, but it ' s going to take time to develop, " Haley said. Assistant Coach Chris Bigelow added that the team made major progress and " has an excellent base for next year. The team will be making many positive changes. They still need to be more versatile, but they are an exciting group to watch. We ' re all excited about next season. " With no outgoing seniors to replace, the Lady Longhorns could expect to see a strong lineup of outstanding players. Syzsyczak proved to be one of the strongest outside attackers in the con- ference. She ended the season with 323 kills and 233 assists. Kurt had an ex- cellent season as the Horn setter. She led the team with 53 service aces and 1463 assists. She also was selected as the 1989 Southwest Conference player of the year. Six-foot sophomore Nikki Busch, a consistently strong outside-attacker, was the team leader in kills with 408 and also led with 3 kills per game. Busch was named to the 1989 All-Southwest Conference First Team. As a freshman, middle blocker Errica Hibben had an outstanding season pro- viding much of the fire-power for the team. At 6 ' 1 " , she dominated the con- ference with 53 solo blocks and 133 block assists. Because of her effort, Hib- ben was chosen as the 1989 Southwest Conference newcomer of the year. With a full house of returning sea- soned players like Syzsyczak, junior Quandalyn Harrell, sophomore Janine Gremmel, sophomore Annette Garza, Kurt, Busch and Hibben, as well as four red-shirt freshmen, the Lady Horns would have no problem in continuing their eight-year Southwest Conference winning streak, nor in remaining a top contender for the Final Four. Concerning next season, Harrell said, " People are going to see some volley- ball that ' s never been seen from any UT team before.

I think it is a time to be ex- cited and obviously pleased for the op- portunity to be part of this tourna- ment, " Texas ' Head Coach Jody Conradt said, going into the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals. Conradt had a reason to be excited in 1990. Her Lady Longhorns ended the season with a 27-5 overall record, shared the Southwest Conference sea- son title with Arkansas and won the conference tournament for the eighth consecutive year. Texas ' only losses during the regular season had come from Washington, Western Kentucky, Tennessee and Ar- kansas, all of which made the NCAA tournament. The Lady ' Horns beat Houston (101- 58) and Texas Tech (63-60) to win the conference tournament. In the game against Houston, the Cougars were out- rebounded and allowed the Lady Long- horns to score 64 points in the second half, Texas ' highest scoring half of the year. The previous high was 52 against Old Dominion. Following the blowout against Hous- ton, Texas had a scare when it appeared that Tech might be able to defeat the Lady ' Horns. Tech led by four points at the half; nevertheless, the Lady Long- horns came back to defeat them, rallied by sophomore forward Vicki Hall ' s 15 points. For her outstanding perfor- mance, junior guard Edna Campbell was voted the tournament ' s most val- uable player. The eighth-ranked Lady ' Horns were 25-4 and earned an au- tomatic NCAA Tournament bid. In Austin, the Lady Longhorns em- barrassed Ohio State with a score of 95- 66 in the second round of the NCAA Midwest Regional tournament. Again, Hall was the leading scorer with 26 points. Center Cinietra Henderson add- ed her career high of 24 points. Senior forward Susan Anderson and senior guard Lyssa McBride both contributed 1 1 points. Defensively, senior center El- len Bayer played an excellent game with 9 rebounds and 9 blocked shots. In front of a crowd of 7,624 at the Erwin Center, the Lady ' Horns earned their next victory against North Car- olina State. Campbell led Texas with 19 points and Henderson followed close after with 17. Unfortunately, the final game of the season was against top-ranked and un- defeated Louisiana Tech. Embarrassing Texas, the Techsters defeated the Lady ' Horns (71-57) in front of a relatively huge crowd of 12,390. Again, Hall led Texas scoring with 24 points. In the first half, Texas halted the efforts of Louisiana ' s All-American center Venus Lacy. Noting the Lady ' Horns ' success- ful defensive measures, Louisiana Tech ' s coach, Leon Barrymore, said, " I thought Texas did an excellent job at keeping the ball from Venus. I think that ' s a tribute to Texas. " Ironically, Texas had a 27-26 half- time lead. Tech had only trailed twice at halftime in 1990; however, missed shots and other mistakes contributed to the Lady Longhorns ' defeat. Despite this upset, the Lady ' Horns had an impressive season. Looking to- ward 1991, Conradt said, " We have to get better over the summer. We have some good talent but we need to im- prove. I ' ve already talked to each play- er about the things she must do to get better.

' Women ' s Basketball 129 LADY ' HORNS CONTINUE To SHOOT To THRILL No other word could quite sum up the season for the Lady Longhorns as well as their theme, " Thrill. " Reflect- ing at season ' s end, Coach Jody Conradt said, " There were a lot of ups and downs in this season . . . but when you think that over 240 teams started the season and we finished in the final eight, that ' s pretty satisfying. " At the beginning of the season, the question on everyone ' s mind was if the Lady ' Horns would be as effective with- out their former star, Clarissa Davis. Under the lead of Conradt, the win- ningest coach in women ' s basketball with a 439-64 record, the Lady ' Horns quieted the initial doubts and ended the season with a 27-5 overall record. The team was ranked eighth by the Asso- ciated Press and ninth by USA Today. Sophomore forward Vicki Hall and junior guard Edna Campbell were the marquee players for Texas this season, but the real story was balance. Hall led the Lady Longhorns in scoring with her 16.4 points and 7.4 rebounds. Camp- bell, who was playing her first year at Texas after transferring from Mary- land, averaged 14.9 points per game. Freshman center Cinietra Henderson finished as the third leading scorer with 1 1.3 points and 6.2 rebounds. " The best thing for me was coming and starting as a freshman (at the University), " said Henderson. Senior forward Susan Anderson con- tinued her consistency by averaging 11.1 points and 6.3 rebounds. Senior center Ellen Bayer, who led the team with 61 percent in field goal shooting, finished with 85 blocks, averaging 2.7 per game. Junior point guard Amy Claborn led the team with 1.8 steals per game and averaged 6.2 points per game with 4.9 assists per game. Sophomore guard Johanna Pointer added 6.8 points per game while senior guard Lys- sa McBride contributed 5.8. The season provided more than enough tests for Texas, as the Lady ' Horns faced a schedule which included several nationally ranked teams. Fol- lowing a debut loss to No. 16 Wash- ington in Seattle (65-75), the Lady Longhorns had to rebound to face No. 8 Purdue in the Austin American- Statesman Classic. The Lady ' Horns played an intense game against the Big Ten favorites and emerged with a nar- row 91-89 victory. Campbell led the scoring with 21 points. Still shaken from the Washington de- feat, Texas reestablished their confi- dence with a come-back win against Long Beach State. With 1:18 left, Long Beach led 77-69; however, contribu- tions by Campbell, Claborn and Mc- Bride allowed the Lady ' Horns to close the gap in the last seconds and, even- tually, overtake their opponent. Excited about the win, McBride said, " The highlight of the season had to have been the game between Long Beach State, because we were behind by 8 with a minute left, and we came back. " Texas was riding high on a four-game winning str eak when they returned home to play Ohio State in the Coca- Cola Classic. They continued their win- ning ways by humiliating the Buck Eyes with a 30-point difference, 82-52. Texas had won three SWC games against Texas Tech, Baylor and TCU before a difficult loss to Western Ken- tucky; nevertheless, Texas came back from the loss to beat the undersized SMU Lady Mustangs, 95-77.

The last time the Lady ' Horns had met Arkansas they had narrowly escaped with a 101-97 victory, the closest conference game Texas had played in the past two years. However, the Lady ' Horns soundly de- feated Arkansas with a win of 84-75. After the Lady Horns systematically made their way through the first half of the season, summing up a 12-year, 178- game SWC winning streak, Conradt had to keep her team motivated despite a practical lock on the conference title. The Lady ' Horns seemingly had no problem with this, for they won another seven games in a row. Highlighting this success, Texas embarrassed the Rice Owls with a 103-43 victory. In the game against SMU, Texas opened to beat the Lady Mustangs 105- 70. In Rollie White Coliseum, Hall scored a career high of 32 points in leading the sixth-ranked Lady ' Horns to a 95-70 victory over Texas A M. Anderson had 21 points playing only five minutes of the first half. With their 82-67 victory over Texas Tech, the Lady Longhorns had won their ninth game in a row, lifting their SWC record to 13-0 and 20-3 overall. On Feb. 23, a crowd of 1 1,616 in the Erwin Center, the 19th-ranked Lady Razorbacks of Arkansas won an upset victory over the Lady ' Horns. The loss ended the 183-game UT winning streak against conference opponents starting in 1978. Going into the game, UT was ranked first in the conference in scor- ing with a 90.02 per game average, while the Lady Razorbacks were second with 79.4. The final score was 77-82. Rising above the loss and the ended conference streak, the Lady Longhorns 1 UP FOR GRABS: Junior guard Edna Campbell attempts to overpower the Purdue defense and make a shot. photo by Kristine Wolff, LOOSE BALL: Junior guard Amy Claborn tries to re- bound a missed shot by senior forward Susan Anderson. photo by Carrie Dawson had decisive victories in their next two contests against TCU and Northeast Louisiana. In the non-conference win over Northeast Louisiana, Anderson led with 23 points and 14 rebounds and Henderson hooped in 2 1 points. The final game of the regular season against Houston ' s Lady Cougars was critical. UT had to win in order to share the conference title with Arkansas. Bayer was graceful under the pressure, leading both scoring and rebounding in the narrow 77-74 UT victory. With a consistent, balanced attack on their opponents, the Lady Longhorns concluded their successful season by competing in the NCAA midwest re- gional final. Although their ascension to a national championship was thwart- ed by Louisiana Tech, Texas left their mark on women ' s basketball in 1990.

No one ac- knowledged this more than the coaches of the most well-attended sports. " Our players statistically play much better at home than they do away, " volleyball coach Mick Haley said. " Our fan support has certainly been an ad- vantage for us. They ' ve had a lot to do with our success. " With sellout crowds against Texas A M and Arkansas, men ' s basketball coach Tom Fenders described the fans ' support as " just incredible. Our players feel appreciated and they want to play hard for them, " Fenders said. " I ' m thrilled with the crowd. " " The positive atmosphere has pushed each of the players, the coaches and faculty to greater heights, " women ' s basketball coach Jody Conradt said. " No one in the nation is supporting women ' s basketball like UT. Not only are they supporting the institution, but women, even if they ' re in non- traditional roles, " Conradt said. " I ' m always amazed at the loyalty and interest they (the fans) show and the knowledge that they have of the game, " baseball coach Cliff Gustafson said. " I think they ' re wonderful. " A sport usually not patronized by col- lege students, swimming, was neverthe- less greatly supported in Texas. This enthusiasm helped the swimming pro- gram to improve. " I think the enthusiasm this campus has toward swimming and other sports has helped when we recruit our ath- letes, " women ' s swimming coach Mark Schubert said. " The fans ' spirit was obvious when it came to football. Attendance at home reached more than 80,000 fans and never dipped under 49,000 throughout the season. Coach David McWilliams praised the crowd for its encourage- ment. " There ' s no question that the fans really do help, " McWilliams said. " They give the players that added boost that they need there on the field. " Applauded by the coaches, UT fans had been credited for having a positive affect on our athletes and their suc- cesses. It appeared that the Texas fans were as much of an opponent as the Longhorn teams themselves.

After soundly beating Texas A M in the first round of SWC play, Texas suf- fered an 86-89 loss to Houston, earning the " Runnin ' Horns " a third place fin- ish in the conference; however, this dis- satisfying end was soon forgotten dur- ing the NCAA competition. From the outset, Coach Tom Fenders felt the team had to win 20 games in the regular season in order to earn a spot among the national elite of 64 teams. With Texas ' final record of 20-7, the Horns barely gained an NCAA bid, only seeded to place 10th in the Mid- west. The conservative predictions were challenged, however, when the Horns would not only surpass their skeptics ' expectations, but battle through three rounds of tough com- petition to make it to the round of the " Great Eight " teams before losing to conference rival Arkansas. " With the type of coaching staff and the type of team we had, I felt we could win the whole tournament. We didn ' t consider ourselves a Cinderella team, " said senior guard Lance Blanks. The first round of NCAA tourna- ment play pitted Texas against heavily- favored Georgia. Senior guard and SWC player of the year Travis Mays scored a season-high 44 points to lead the Horns to a convincing 100-88 win. Two days later, Texas overcame a tough Purdue defense to pull out an exciting 73-72 victory led by junior guard Joey Wright, who contributed 20 points, and by the defensive iron-man, junior forward Guillermo " Panama " Myers, who added 1 3 rebounds. Myers ' biggest contribution, though, was per- haps the greatest defensive play in Tex- as basketball history. Myers blocked a shot by Purdue ' s Tony Jones to lock up the second-round upset victory. With this win, Texas advanced to the round of the " Sweet 16 " to face Xavier. During the four days preceding the game, basketball fever began to truly sink in among the student body and fans in Austin. " Sweet 16 " t-shirts, signs and news stories appeared amid distant rumblings of the possibility of advancing to the Final Four in Denver. This newly-discovered fever soon turned into an epidemic as Texas de- feated Xavier (102-89), with Mays ' 32 points and a stellar second-half perfor- mance by senior guard Lance Blanks.

" I ' ve never seen anything like it ... or been a part of such a spontaneous show of school spirit like this, " said Eric Zobrist, architecture sophomore. " I can ' t wait to see what happens if we make it to the Final Four. " However, all hope of advancing to the Final Four ended two nights later as the Horns fell to their long-time ad- versary, Arkansas, in a final 85-88 loss. The quarter-final game marked the third time the Razorbacks defeated Texas during the season. The conference was well represented in the tournament by three very com- petitive teams. The University of Hous- ton, earning second place in the SWC, received a tournament bid but was up- set in the first round of play by the University of California at Santa Bar- bara. SWC champion Arkansas made it to the Final Four before they fell to tournament finalist Duke. " The conference is improving, " UT Coach Tom Fenders said.

The symptoms of the ' Horns ' newfound success were evidenced by increased fan support, media coverage, broken school records and opposing schools ' bids for Fenders. " This was a great crowd, " said Ar- kansas Coach Nolan Richardson re- garding the third sellout Texas crowd to witness the ' Horns in action. This sentiment was frequently echoed by ri- val coaches and players in the confer- ence, as Texas saw its game attendance increase even over 1989 ' s record- breaking numbers. Attendance was boosted by additional sellout crowds against Rhode Island and Texas A M. Attendance, however, was not the only sign of renewed interest in Texas basketball, for media coverage both on the national and local levels increased as well. Five regular season games were televised nationally on such major net- works as CBS, ABC and ESPN. " I don ' t think the coverage had that big of an effect on our playing because it wasn ' t our first time on national TV, " senior guard Lance Blanks said. " From the other side of the camera, as far as the fans getting to see us play, I think it had a much bigger impact. " The only people who remained im- mune to the success of the team were the coaches and journalists who rank the teams for the AP and UPI polls. Despite Fenders ' repeated claims that Texas was a top 25 team, the ' Horns remained on the outskirts, unranked among the national elite. However, Fenders ' word proved to be good, as his team defeated such na- tional powers as DePaul, Georgia, Purdue and Xavier. " It just proves we ' re a much better team. It all goes back to the big question of scheduling, " junior guard Joey Wright said. " I think we ' ve scheduled a lot tougher teams this year, and we ' re playing at that lev- el. " Along with this success came near disaster stemming from reports that other schools were in hot pursuit of Texas ' most prized commodity, Fenders. All fears were laid to rest, though, when Fenders accepted a sev- en-year, $735,000 contract from UT. Although the athletic department was able to prevent the loss of Fenders at the end of the season, there was noth- ing that could be done about the break- up of Texas ' " ultimate scoring ma- chine: BMW " Blanks, senior guard Travis Mays and Wright. The high- performance machine came to a screeching halt as Texas graduated sen- ior guards Blanks and Mays. In addi- tion, senior center George Muller, left the ' Horns with graduation. Mays ' and Blanks ' invaluable contri- butions to the team were highlighted by the shattering of numerous school records. Despite suffering an injury to his hand, Mays still set the record for most career points scored in the con- ference and was named SWC player of the year for the second time. " He ' s not your average kid, " Fenders said about Mays. " He ' s our best all-around player, offensively and defensively. " After transferring from the Univer- sity of Virginia, Blanks scored 1,322 points for Texas, setting a Texas record for the most points made by a two-year player. These accomplishments led to an ex- citing season for Longhorn basketball highlighted by new team records as well. The high-scoring ' Horns im- proved 1989 ' s mark of ten 100-point games to 11. Other feats included a first-place finish at the Longhorn Clas- sic tournament, hosted by Texas at the Erwin Center, and competitive play against nationally ranked teams like Florida, Oklahoma and LSU. Although not as positive a highlight, the players will always remember a particularly ex- citing overtime loss to Arkansas on na- tional television. " I will never forget that game, " said Blanks. " To this day I can ' t figure out how we lost that game. " Though the loss was disappointing, the Runnin ' ' Horns bounced back with a six-game winning streak marked by five conference victories a nd a necessary win over perennial power DePaul. The combination of talented players, a good coach and vital wins at the end of the season vindicated Fenders ' claims when the team earned a berth in the NCAA tournament.

Trailing by a wide margin, the nearest competitor, Southern Methodist, lost by 12 strokes in Texas ' fifth SWC cha- mionship victory in eight years. Junior Michiko Hattori, two-time de- fending SWC champion, was the low Lady Longhorn with a three-day total of 227. That was good enough for an individual second place tie in the tour- nament. Seniors Jenny Germs, Cindy Haley and Beth Paul-Rinke and soph- omore Piper Wagner rounded out the victorious squad. Amid their most competitive rivals, the Lady ' Horns started the season at the Tour Tulsa Invitational. Coach Pat Weis, noting her team ' s competition, said, " This will be a very difficult tour- nament in terms of the teams that are there. " Eight teams from 1989 ' s top 20 poll were in the field, including defend- ing NCAA champion San Jose State. This did not affect the team, as they were able to capture a tie for first place with the host team, Tulsa; however, Tulsa was awarded the victory by way of a tie-breaker based on the better score of the competing teams ' fifth golfers. Always near the top, the Lady ' Horns also finished in second place at the Chris Johnson Invitational, the Golf- smith-Betsy Rawls Longhorn Classic, and the Earl Stewart Lady Mustang Roundup. The team consistently fin- ished in the top three in seven of the nine tournaments in which they com- peted. The solid consistent play by all the members of the team accounted for the successful 1990 season. Most notably, Hattori picked up her first win of the season at the Earl Stew- art Lady Mustang Roundup on April 8, which also extended her streak of regular season top 10 performances to 27. The win was the ninth of h er ca- reer, which also included a victory in the Shiseido Cup International student tournament in Japan, her native land. Following their conference victory, the Lady ' Horns planned to compete in the NCAA National Championship at Hilton Head, S.C. They hoped to im- prove their 1989 tie for 10th place.

Garnering further honors, Texas claimed the SWC Full Season Cham- pionship. This championship was based on a system in which points were earned for the finishes of designated tourna- ments. Winning the Harvey Penick In- tercollegiate and the All-America In- tercollegiate tournaments, the ' Horns claimed victory in two of the three tour- naments specified. The team ' s success was the direct re- sult of strong, solid play by a fine cast of players. Team members included sen- ior Brad Agee, the 1989 SWC runner- up, and junior Omar Uresti, who won the Harvey Penick and the All-America tournaments. The ' Horns placed in the top five in seven of the 1 1 tournaments that they played. This consistent play kept them in the NCAA top 10 poll all year. The team planned to play in the NCAA Regional Qualifying Meet in Columbus, Ohio. " There are some real- ly strong teams at Regionals, but we feel we will be able to compete with the strength of the field, " said Clayton. Coming off the momentum of back-to- back wins in the SWC Championship and the All-American tournaments, they were most likely to qualify for the NCAA Championships, in which they placed second in 1989. Agee would be the only player lost after this season. Although it would be difficult to replace him, Clayton said he believed he might be able to field a better team in 1991 thanks to an out- standing recruiting year. The team picked up the No. 1 high school recruit in Texas, Justin Leonard, and along with the depth the team already had, the future for the ' Horns looked very impressive.

The meets leading up to the SWC championships foreshadowed the team ' s success in the conference. Con- sistently placing, the Horns took first place in the Baylor Invitational, fourth in the Naval Invitational and third in the Stanford Invitational. Hall was the team leader with first place finishes among the Lady Longhorns and noth- ing less than seventh place overall. " Tina had an outstanding season, ' Head Coach Terry Crawford said. " She ' s a good student of the sport and a very good runner. " Continuing her winning pace, Hall claimed victory in the SWC Champi- onships with her first place perfor- mance in the 5,000 meter. With a time of 1 6 minutes and 54 seconds, it was her best race of the season and her first win in the college ranks. " It was the one race I can look back at and be really proud of, " Hall said. " It was a great accomplishment. " Contributing to the team ' s win, senior Shelley McBride placed fourth, senior Eileen Ellig took 1 1th, and sophomore Christine Gentile and junior Gabrielle Pohlmann placed 12th and 13th, respectively. Following the SWC competition, the runners had to set their sights on a more important event, the NCAA Dis- trict VI meet. It was the qualifying race which would allow them to compete in the NCAA Championships. Coming into the contest, the team recognized their main adversaries. " We knew Bay- lor was a threat because they performed so well at the conference meet, " said Pohlmann, " and we also recognized Ar- kansas as a threat, for they traditionally field a strong team. " I In contrast to last year ' s first place finish, Texas took second place follow- ing Baylor and held off Arkansas by a scant three points. Individually, Hall led the Horns, finishing third. McBride took ninth, Pohlmann took 14th and Gentile came in 19th. Their team standing was good enough to qualify them for the championships. In Annapolis, Md., the Lady Long- horns had nowhere else to go but up, considering they had placed dead last in the previous year ' s NCAA final com- petition. Not faring much better, the Horns took 19th place out of 22 teams. " We were all disappointed and let down, because we weren ' t as strong as we could be, " Hall said. Although the team ' s final showing was a disappointment, Hall brightened the picture in receiving well deserved All-American Honors by finishing 14th out of more than 150 runners.

The team finished second overall in NCAA District VI competition and, for the 10th consecutive year, qualified for the NCAA Championship. But in the championship hampered by the loss of two key runners the team finished 14th out of a field of 22 teams. Still, coaches and runners alike said the team ' s youth and its performance in the district meet held promise for a bright- er future. The 1988 team boasted All- Americans Harry Green and Jeff Can- nada, both catalysts in qualifying the Longhorns to the 1988 NCAA Cham- pionship. But the team lost both run- ners with their graduation. The All-Americans ' departure raised concerns over the youth and talent of the 1989 team. But head coach Stan Huntsman and his coaching staff knew the team was laced with a talented group of young runners and dismissed any doubts. " We felt going in as one of the top teams in the nation we wanted to give Arkansas a run for their money, " assistant coach Mike Hughes said. In the NCAA District VI qualifying meet, the team did just that. Not only did they finish first overall, the team, for the first time in 1 2 years, edged out the Arkansas Razorbacks to earn a berth in the NCAA Championship. " For the team to have performed as well as they did is consistent with what we wanted, " Hughes said. Sophomore Steve Sisson, one of the team ' s leaders, was positive about the meet. " We ran better as a team, " Sisson said. The Longhorns went into the NCAA Championship seeded 7th and hoping to finish in the top 10, but their hopes I were dashed as they finished 14th in a field of 22. " Our spirits were really high after district. Nothing seemed to fall togeth- er at the [championship] meet, " fresh- man Paul Stoneham said. Sisson finished with his best time of the year, 31:28. He said, " We had a great year, but our expectation going into the meet was higher after district. " Although expectations were high, the team was not all that healthy going into the meet. Sophomore Alex Men- doza was running with tendonitis, and Stoneham had just overcome a virus. Even though the Longhorn men ended the season on a bitter note, the team overall had a successful year. With the emergence of Stoneham, the ac- quisition of Livingston and with the likes of veterans Sisson, Mendoza and sophomore Ernie Shepard, the Long- horn runners hoped to continue their pursuit of the elusive SWC title. " Everybody was young, and we ex- pect to pick up where we finished off this year, in the top 15, " Hughes said. Graduating senior Shaun Barnes was more enthusiastic about next year. " They have a chance of winning the conference and having some All- Americans, " he said. Whether or not the Men ' s Cross Country Team would capture the Southwest Conference title was yet to be seen, but one thing was certain; their future looked promising.

Texas breezed through their early track meets and won their sixth consecutive South- western Conference title, and as a con- sequence, many members of the team qualified for the NCAA indoor nation- als. " The indoor nationals were definite- ly our best performance, " said senior high jumper Angle Bradburn, who placed third in her competition. " We all pooled together and won. " The capture of the NCAA indoor national cham- pionship marked the highlight of the women ' s season. The victory at nation- als not only earned the Texas team the distinction of being the finest women ' s indoor track team in the nation, but also the honor of being the only team to ever win three championships. A nearly flawless team effort was highlighted by many outstanding indi- vidual performances. Junior Carlette Guidry took the NCAA title in both the 55-meters and 200-meters competi- tions, an amazing performance consid- ering the fact that she was coming off two weeks of inactivity due to a strained left knee. In the 400-meters, junior Sandie Richards was the NCAA run- ner-up with a time of 51.99, a personal best. The 4X400 relay team became the world ' s fastest in the event, posting a lightning quick 3:32.01. At the end of the 1989 season, the women ' s relay team had been voted as the top relay team in the nation. " Going into the meet, we were real confident that we could regain the ti- tle, " said junior Kellie Roberts, who ran the initial leg of the relay. " And I guess we ' re classified (as the world ' s best) again. " Barely taking a breather after the na- tional championships, the Lady ' Horns charged straight into the outdoor sea- son, where they hoped to maintain their domination of SWC track. Despite a lackluster team performance at the Texas Relays, the women were still able to achieve individually. Senior Angie Bradburn won the high jump with a leap of 6-3 4. For the third time in as many years, Texas won the 1,600-meter relay in a Texas Relays record time of 3:32.77. Two weeks after the Texas Relays, the Lady ' Horns traveled to the East Coast to participate in the Penn Relays. In the 1,600-meter relay, the team con- sisting of juniors Roberts, Nicole Ates, Barbara Sellridge and Richards ran the second fastest time in school history with a time of 3:30.61. Guidry was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award for her accomplishments in 1989, which included four relay vic- tories and a runner-up out of a total of five. Looking beyond the Relays and to the SWC Outdoor Championships, the team seemed confident it could win the conference crown. " At the [Texas] Re- lays we were kind of at the point where everybody was coming together. We had a good performance and quite a few personal bests, " said Bradburn. " I think we have a good chance of winning the championship again.

" We came out of the indoor season kind of licking our wounds " said junior transfer Noyes Livingston. " The indoor season is really for the Northeast schools and we don ' t put that much emphasis on it here. " The first home meet was the Texas Quadrangular, in which the team took an easy first place finish. The real high- light of the meet, however, was not the team ' s victory, but the world record set by sophomore Patrick Boden in the javelin. Boden threw for 292 feet, four inches. His teammate, junior John Poole, finished second in the event with a throw of 232 feet, nine inches. Per- sonal bests were also recorded by junior BODEN SETS WORLD RECORD IN JAVELIN Derwin Hall and sophomore Steve Sis- son in the 200-meter dash and the 5,000-meter run, respectively. The Texas Quadrangular was only a warmup for the Texas Relays that fol- lowed two weeks later. The relays were most likely the Longhorns ' finest meet of the season. " The Relays really got the team going and made us realize that we were winners, " said Livingston, who finished third in the steeplechase with a time of 8:43.65, a personal best. The Texas 4x400 relay team also gained accolades by winning the event for the first time in 15 years. Keith Keller, a sophomore decathlete, also had a stunning performance by record- ing nine personal bests and tying a tenth to take second in the decathlon. Spectacular performances were not only delivered by these individuals, but by others as well. Looking forward to the SWC meet, the Longhorns appeared to be in good shape. " Ask any coach in the confer- ence and they ' ll tell you that we have the best overall team, " said Scott. The Longhorns ' primary competition would be Arkansas, Baylor and A M, all of which were known for their strength in particular areas rather than for their overall program.

With top performances by every swimmer, most notably the freshmen, the Lady Longhorns staged a thrilling comeback on the final day of the NCAA championships in Austin. The Lady ' Horns edged out Stanford 632-622.5 for the team title with the closest mar- gin of victory, 9.5 points, in the history of the meet. The meet was so close, in fact, that its outcome was not decided until the final event the 400-yard freestyle relay which the Horns won. Consequently, the win gave Texas a phenomenal sixth national championship in seven years, its eighth overall, helping to establish them as one of the premier swimming programs in college athletics. Texas swam to a 9- 1 dual meet record and a No. 2 national ranking during the 1990 season. One loss to top-ranked Stanford was only a minor setback, for the ' Horns would eventually qualify 16 swimmers in 17 events for the NCAA meet. The overwhelming talent that Texas possessed made them favorites to win their seventh consecutive SWC title. The Lady ' Horns did not disappoint, as they easily defeated second place South- ern Methodist (1018-621) while setting three new conference records in the conference championships. Although Texas had the type of depth that most teams only dreamed of, they were picked by most sportswriters to finish a distant second to Stanford at the NCAA championships. Half of the team was new seven freshmen and one transfer leading most to believe that the ' Horns did not have enough experience. However, coach Mark Schubert was confident that his team had a chance. He believed that his team would win if there were " solid perfor- mances by the upperclassmen and im- proved performances by the fresh- men. " The first day of competition saw Tex- as win two events to take a surprising 26-point lead over Stanford. Junior Leigh Ann Fetter became the first woman in the history of swimming to break the 22-second barrier in the 50- yard freestyle, posting a time of 2 1 .92 seconds. " I had dreams all season (of breaking the barrier), " said Fetter. " I knew I would do it at this meet. " Fetter later joined senior Jeanne Doolan, junior Dana Dutcher and soph- omore Julie Cooper to win the 200-yard freestyle relay, setting a new pool rec- ord of 1:29.83. With strong swims by freshmen sen- sations Janet Evans and Janel Jorgen- son, Stanford went ahead of Texas by 20.5 points in the team competition on the second day. Although they had no individual victories, the Longhorns did have three second place finishes that helped them stay close to Stanford. Freshman Amy Shaw finished second in the 400-yard individual medley, sophomore Katy Arris placed second in the 200-yard freestyle, and junior diver Kelly Jenkins took second place honors in the three-meter springboard com- petition.

In fact, he predicted that if Texas swimmers scored enough points in or- der that the meet be decided by the last event, the 400-yard freestyle relay, the ' Horns would win the championship. " We felt that we would win the meet if it came down to the last relay, " Schu- bert said. " We were consistent in the morning swims and able to qualify enough swimmers for the finals. " As Schubert predicted, the meet came down to that last relay. Although Stanford ' s lead had increased to more than 40 points halfway through the last night, Texas fought back. Outstanding swims by senior Andrea Hayes, Fetter, Shaw, freshmen Jodi Wilson and Erica Jude, along with high finishes by divers Jenkins and senior Patty Overmeyer helped Texas take a scant 1 .5 point lead before the last event. In what Fetter called " the best free- style sprint group in the country, " the 400 freestyle relay team of Cooper, Dutcher, Arris and Fetter won the event. I However, the team found itself be- hind Stanford after the first three swim- mers, and had to rely on the nation ' s top sprinter, Fetter, to win the race. Erika Hansen had total confidence that the relay would win. " We have better sprinters than any other team, " said Hansen. " The team was confident that (the relay) would come through. " Thus, Texas won its sixth national championship in seven years. For Schu- bert, the win held special meaning, not only because it was his first collegiate national championship, but because it happened in Austin. " It was a big thrill to win it in Austin, " said Schubert. " It made it more special to walk out and see the Tower lit.

In what was predicted to be a close NCAA meet, the two-time defending national champion Longhhorns swam past second place USC (506-423) to bring home the 1990 NCAA title. The victory made Texas the sixth school in NCAA men ' s swimming history to win three consecutive national champion- ships. Texas began the 1989-90 season by compiling a 6-1 dual meet record. De- spite the early season loss to Stanford, the Longhorns remained the top- ranked collegiate team throughout the entire season. The Horns hosted the SWC Cham- pionships in Austin and rolled through the meet, defeating second place SMU, 880-779.5. En route to their 1 1th con- secutive SWC title, 14 Longhorn swim- mers qualified in 17 events, including all five relays, for the NCAA meet. Although Texas was favored to win the NCAA Championships held in In- dianapolis, coach Eddie Reese was not completely relaxed. He felt that with the talent that USC and Stanford pos- sessed, his Longhorns " had a shot of losing the meet. " " We wanted more freshmen to qual- ify. We thought it would be close, " said sophomore Jeff Thibault. On the first day of competition, Tex- as finished with a slim 17 point lead over second place USC, 163-146. Two Longhorn relays, the 200-yard freestyle and 400-yard medley, were victorious. The 400-yard medley relay of Thibault, senior Kirk Stackle, junior Shaun Jor- dan, and senior Doug Gjertsen broke Stanford ' s five-year-old American rec- ord by swimming a time of 3:09.70. Although they did not win any in- dividual events the first day, Texas placed at least two finishers in the top 16 of every event. The second day saw the ' Horns in- crease their lead to 69 points over USC, 360-291. Texas won three titles that day. Gjertsen won the 200-yard free- style with a time of 1:33.25, the second fastest 200 freestyle ever. Stackle repeated as the 100-yard breaststroke champion, posting a time of 53.48 seconds.

Aside from the three titles, Texas also had three second place finishes from Thibault (100 back- stroke), Jordan (100 butterfly) and sen- ior Hans Dersch (100 breaststroke). The final day of the meet proved to be no different than the other two as Texas easily won the national cham- pionship, 506-423, over second place USC. The margin of victory, 83 points, was so large that every Longhorn swim- mer in the last three events could have skipped their races and Texas still would have won. " I was definitely sur- prised, " Reese said. " Swimming is such a funny sport that you never know ex- actly how well you ' re going to swim that one given weekend. " The last day also proved to be the most exciting of the meet. Competing in the same event, junior Mike Bar- rowman of Michigan and Texas ' Stackle shattered the oldest American record of nine years in the 200-yard breaststroke. Although Barrowman ' s first place finish gave him the new rec- ord, Stackle was pleased enough know- ing that he had also broken it and that he had finished his collegiate career on a winning Texas team. " I thought I had a good chance of breaking it, " said Stackle. " I can ' t be- lieve it ' s over. It feels great to be on the greatest college team. " Also a winner the last day was the Texas 400-yard freestyle relay team of Werth, Jordan, Gjertsen, and sopho- more Matt Stahlman. The Longhorns dominated four out of the five relays swum at the meet by winning first place and thus scoring 188 points out of a possible 200. " The strong individuals on our team get together and come out with a winning relay, " said Thibault. " They set the tone for the meet. " The Longhorns ' dominance of col- legiate swimming could be extended, as several members of 1990 ' s champion- ship team will return in 1991. " If every- one of the team this year will improve, then we have a shot next year, " said Reese. " It ' s going to be a great battle.

Brown ' s enthusiasm for the team was not unfounded, for they consistently as- sisted the entire swimming squad with points won in competition. With their succeses came national and conference titles. In the Southwest Conference cham- pionships, the women divers placed in the top 10 in all their events. In the three-meter springboard competition, the defending national champion, jun- ior Kelly Jenkins, took first place. " I usually don ' t compete well in con- ference and smaller events, " Jenkins said. " I came into conference with the goal of improving my performance. " Following Jenkins, senior Patty GRAND GESTURE: Diving coach Mike Brown displays prop- er diving techniques to junior diver Kelly Jenkins.

The lady divers didn ' t do as well in the other events; however, their per- formances still earned much-needed points for the swim team. " It was so close, without the divers they [the swim team] wouldn ' t have won, " Gamme said. After an unsuccessful execution of a new dive, Gamme placed second in the platform competition. Overmyer cap- tured third in platform as well as sev- enth in the one-meter springboard. Outstanding SWC performances earned both Jenkins and Overmeyer spots in the NCAA competition. They placed in the three-meter springboard event, with Jenkins taking second, fin- ishing behind long-time SMU rival Kris- ta Wilson, and Overmeyer taking sixth. In 10-meter platform diving, Overmeyer finished seventh and Jen- kins finished eighth. They also placed in the one-meter springboard event, with Jenkins finishing 19th and Overmeyer taking 22nd place. Looking toward next year, the lady divers hoped for yet another national title. " We ' re going to try to do it again, but we need to work hard, " Gamme said.

" The team did a good job through- out the year, " said sophomore Kenny Green. " I ' m glad that we won the third straight championship. We contributed some extra points. " Ranked No. 1 in the nation through- out the season, the Horns not surpris- ingly won their 1 1th straight Southwest Conference Championship title. Con- tributing to the team ' s success, fresh- man Brandon Gardner placed third in both the one-meter and three-meter springboard events. Also placing, soph- omore Jason Rhodes captured fifth place in the one-meter and placed fourth in the three-meter springboard. The Horns entered the NCAA Championships in Indianapolis qualify- ing only two divers, Gardner and Rhodes. Although he qualified, Rhodes did not feel that he was in the best of shape, for he was still recuperating from an off-season shoulder injury. However, Rhodes and Gardner did well enough to help insure a national victory for Texas. Gardner placed in the Top 20 in the one and three-meter spring- board. Surprisingly, Rhodes took two eighth place finishes in both the one- meter and three-meter events and fin- ished 1 7th in the ten-meter platform. Rhodes, who also earned All- American honors, attributed the Long- horns ' successful season to the team- work of both the divers and swimmers. " As a team we did well. The ones who went to the NCAA meet did really well. Everyone contributed (to the champi- onship).

Only losing in 1986, Texas had consistently won the conference and in 1990 the tradition continued. With an 8-0 SWC record, the Horns coasted through the SWC and produced many qualifiers for NCAA competition. Heralded as a contest for the con- ference title, Texas ' dual match against an undefeated Houston turned into just another event in which the Lady Horns dominated. This victory granted Texas the top seed in the SWC Championships and their third straight season title. As they were ranked seventh nation- ally, the Lady Horns ' main competition in the SWC championships was a lack of preparation and focus. " It ' s difficult to play teams a second time, " coach Jeff Moore said to the Daily Texan, " especially if you ' ve beaten them de- cisively the first time. There was a lack of focus in the Baylor match and to some extent they were not prepared to play at the beginning of the SMU match. " The team, however, overcame their mental obstacles and defeated their two initial opponents, Baylor and SMU. Furthermore, the team blew out Arkansas in a crushing 7-0 victory, firmly establishing their national prom- inence. One of the primary forces behind the Texas team, freshman Susan Gilchrist proved her reputation as one of the top recruits in the nation. Individually ranked as No. 12 in the nation, Gil- christ also received other honors such as the SWC Player of the Year, Regular Season Champion at No. 1 singles and All-SWC team in singles. In addition, the team of Gilchrist and junior Joanna Plautz was honored with All-SWC team in doubles. In the national arena, the Lady Horns left the comfortable conference atmosphere to compete with America ' s best. Sweeping No. 9 Duke in the first round of NCAA competition, Texas met third-ranked California and staged an amazing come-from-behind victory to advance to the semifinals; however, the Cinderella story was short-lived as the Lady Horns fell to the nation ' s top team, Stanford. In spite of this loss in national com- petition, the UT women demonstrated their SWC consistency and showed their talent in ranking highly among the nation ' s best teams.

By defeating all their Southwestern Conference opponents, Texas captured its first SWC regular season title since 1977 and further dominated the con- ference championships. In just their second tournament, Texas lost to Louisiana State Univer- sity; however, the ' Horns made sure that this would be the only loss of their regular season as they went on a 16- game winning crusade which included a redeeming victory against LSU. The engine of this winning streak was sophomore Steve Bryan and the dou- bles pair, juniors Michael Penman and Mitch Michulka. Ranked third nation- ally by the International Tennis College Association, Bryan accumulated an im- pressive record as well as numerous honors. With a 10-0 conference record and defeated in only three sets of play, Bryan was named SWC Player of the Year and broke the school record for single wins in a season with 46. In their first competition together, Michulka and Penman emerged as a dual power with a victory in the IT- CA Rolex Southwestern Regionals tournament. The duo boasted of a sea- son record of 18 wins and only five losses and earned a fifth place national ranking. Complementing a talented team, Coach Dave Snyder guided Texas with the knowledge he had accrued over his 18-year career at the University. Honored as the third-winningest coach in collegiate tennis, Snyder ' s winning percentage was .736 with an overall UT record of 323-116. Fueled by such talented elements, the ' Horns increased their winning streak in the SWC championships. In straight sets, Texas blew out Baylor to go on and defeat all other conference oppo- nents, Texas A M and TCU, for the championship. The streak was augmented by an ad- ditional victory against Trinity, which set the total at 20 consecutive victories. As the streak ' s momentum continued, the ' Horns saw past their 7th place seed in the NCAA tournament.

" It ' s been basically an up-and-down year, " sophomore third baseman Clay King said. " But sooner or later people started believing in the team, and we started getting things together and got on a roll. " However, just as the team ' s winning momentum was gaining full swing, three key injuries steepened UT ' s road to the SWC title pitcher Kirk Dres- sendorfer developed tendonitis, catcher Roger Luce broke his arm and King, a clutch hitter, broke his wrist. Although Dressendorfer and King were expected to return for regional tournament play, their absence and the team ' s lack of focus cost the Horns their 20th SWC championship under Cliff Gustafson ' s reign as head coach. Overcoming hardships was not an easy task for the team, but as with all difficult experiences, there were lessons learned. " The one thing that we learned from this season was to play 1 00 percent every game instead of just thinking we could do it because of our ability. If we show up and everybody ' s into it, we ' re going to win, " said soph- omore pitcher Chris Gaskill. A strong focus and the discipline to take each inning one at a time was the game plan for the Horns, who had set their sights early for the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Relying on the same winning desire that took the 1989 team to the series, the Horns felt history was on their side. " It all depends on the kind of momen- tum you have. Last year we took a lot of momentum into Omaha and nobody I expected us to win and we went all the way to the championship, " King said. Acquiring the much needed impetus, the Horns soundly defeated their op- ponents in the SWC Tournament, in- cluding a vindicating win against con- ference champion, Arkansas. While no one could predict the out- come of the season, morale was high and there was a job to do. Senior pitch- er Mike Bradley said, " I think we ' ve got the talent to get back (to Omaha). If everybody executes and does their job, I think we ' ll go. " However, the Horns did not fare as well as they hoped following victory at the SWC Tournament. In two upset victories, Cal Fullerton cut short Texas ' roller-coaster ride to Omaha.

Acting as a nucleus for the team, the pitchers set the winning tempo by low- ering their team ' s earned run average to a respectable 3.20. " Our goal this year was to get that down and I think we ' ve done that considerably. That ' s been one of the highlights, " sophomore pitcher Chris Gaskill said. Impressive pitching statistics have al- ways been a part of the Horns ' winning formula one that has for many years led young pitchers to want to be a part of Texas ' winning program. As a place to play ball, the University was " the obvious choice, " senior pitch- er Curry Harden said. " Any other place is incomparable as far as the reputation and the quality of pitchers. It ' s a great opportunity for everyone. " The reputation of Texas pitching gave some of the professional baseball scouts reason to take a close look at the ' Horns ' hot prospects. " You definitely have more advantages coming from here as a pitcher, because of the tra- dition. (The scouts) know how the pro- gram is and that pitching is a very big part of it. They know that the mechan- ics are taught well, " said senior pitcher Mike Bradley. Pitching coach Clint Thomas said de- spite the few that received the most attention, the lowered team ERA and the winning tradition could not be at- tributed to one pitcher. " It ' s always a team effort. (Most of the staff) has been here for two or three years, and the experience makes for better pitchers who learn to get out of jams and not give up the big inning. " Another aspect of the ' Horn tradi- tion was having the bullpen stocked with pitchers who could perform under pressure. After injuries sidelined key starters, young pitchers received their chances to pick up the slack. " We ' ve got the depth, " Bradley said. " I think that ' s what really kept the team going. " On their way to post-season play, the ' Horns concentrated on the fundamen- tals and used their talent to its full po- tential. " All our pitchers have good arms. We ' ve just got to go out there and do the job, concentrate and throw strikes, " Bradley said. When the pitching was hot, the rest of the team usually followed suit. " If you ' ve got a good pitcher on the mound, then you ' re going to play a good game behind him and offensive- ly, " Gaskill said. Like the entire team, the pitching staff ironed out the rough spots and prepared for the SWC tournament. " As a team, our pitchers had a lot of ups and downs, but usually at one point there was somebody that stepped up and was ready to do the job, " said Gaskill. " When somebody let down, somebody else picked up. " Despite the hard times, the pitching tradition shone through and gave strength to a team struggling to over- come unfortunate obstacles. " It ' s pretty well known that good pitching is going to beat good hitting. If you can get the best pitchers and you can get some play- ers that play pretty good defense, it ' s going to keep you in the ball game, " Thomas said.

The job offered occasional television cov- erage, a great social life and even weight loss. Sound too good to be true? Well, it was. Behind all the glitz and glamour, there was a great deal of hard work and energy expended in the ac- tivity of cheerleading. To prepare themselves for the up- coming season , all the cheerleaders had to take time out of their summer va- cations to attend a required cheerlead- ing camp. In 1989, the cheerleaders attended a camp at Southwest Texas State University, sponsored by the Uni- versal Cheerleading Association. Both the football and basketball squads earned superior ratings at the camp competition. In addition, the football squad garnered first place honors in the fight song competition. After summer camp ended, it was not too long before the sports season be- gan. Rehearsals and workouts were physically exhausting, and time- consuming as well. Cheerleaders spent two days a week rehearsing before the games. In addition to attending re- quired rehearsals, the cheerleaders met an average of two to three days to work out and use weights. After rehearsals and workouts, the cheerleaders were then responsible for organizing pre-game pep rallies and at- tending all the games. " During the sea- son, cheerleading takes up to 20 to 25 hours a week, " said basketball and vol- leyball cheerleader Danny Callahan, prebusiness freshman. Once the cheerleaders reached the games, their main goal was to elicit crowd response and preserve university traditions. " We wanted the crowd to get involved more. We also wanted the fans to know the words in the fight song are " GO! Horns! GO! " as opposed to the alternative, " said football cheerleader Dede Matocha, zoology senior. Moreover, the cheerleaders tried new techniques to invite crowd participation and spirit. The football cheerleaders in- troduced a new cheer this year; how- ever, " it didn ' t go over too well, " Matocha said. " We did, however, use a lot more signs, and we did more with pyramids this year. These techniques seemed to be very effective. " In addition to all the required ac- tivities, the cheerleaders also made many public appearances and helped in several charity events and community service activities. The Austin Police De- partment, the Sunshine Kids and the Texas Intensive Care Unit for termi- nally ill children were some of the or- ganizations that benefited from the time donated by the cheerleaders. Of course, all the hard work did pay off. " Cheerleading is the best way to get involved. We get to meet the Texas Exes and lots of other people. People recognize me as a cheerleader and in- troduce themselves to me. It ' s great! " said basketball and volleyball cheerlead- er Shaun Bridgewater, communications sophomore. A great social life was not the only benefit that cheerleading offered. Rig- orous exercise and workouts helped to keep the cheerleaders in excellent phys- ical condition. One of the Bevo mas- cots, who simply went by " Michael " to protect his secret identity, said that cheerleading helped him to lose weight. " It keeps me in great shape. I lose an average of three to six pounds every game. At one particular game I lost seven and a half pounds, " Michael said. Texas cheerleaders deserved the rec- ognition they received. Behind each TV appearance, performance and so- cial function there was a great deal of muscle and sweat. " We work very hard to be good representatives of the Uni- versity. It is a great honor to exemplify to other students what the University of Texas is all about, " said Bridgewater.

Dedicated to making athletes perform better, the football trainers endured long hours and the pressures of maintaining a com- petitive sports program. All trainers had past experience, usu- ally gathered in high school training programs, but the UT application pro- cess was rigorous. " We sent in resumes, had to get recommendations and in- terview with the head trainer, " Billy Whiteley, physical education senior, said. After selection, the trainers began the season with a refresher course on first aid procedures. The course dealt with handling stretchers and athletes who received spinal injuries on the field. Trainers were encouraged to ob- tain CPR certification, and many were certified Emergency Medical Techni- cians. Next, trainers prepared for a rigor- ous schedule of practices and games. " A typical week of training takes up to 30 to 40 hours, " Tim Moore, physical ed- ucation senior, said. The trainers worked as many as six hours a day on weekdays. On Saturday, game day, the trainers arrived six hours prior to the competition, stayed the duration of the game and, afterwards, remained an hour to two hours. The trainers also worked one to two hours on Sundays. The hours spent on the job were di- vided into many duties. Pre-practice ac- tivities consisted of treating old injuries and taping the players for the upcoming workout. " It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to tape everyone, " Rus- sell Sadberry, health education senior, said. Once practice began, the trainers provided all the water and Gatorade the players needed to prevent dehydration. They were also prepared for any in- juries that occured during practice. After the practice session, trainers began rehabilitation treatments such as deep massage, ultrasound muscle stim- ulation, ice and whirlpool treatments, and cleaned up the usual field injuries such as cuts, bruises and abrasions. Then, the trainers cleaned up the train- ing facilities. During games, the trainers divided duties according to classification and experience. Freshmen dispersed water and Gatorade, sophomores worked the benches, juniors worked the sidelines and seniors worked on timeouts and field injury assistance. Training was hard, time-consuming work; however, the rewards were nu- merous. The trainers were part of the team ' s victories and established many lasting friendships. " Getting to know the guys and the friendships you form that ' s the biggest reward. Winning is secondary compared to helping people recover from injuries and gaining their friendship and respect, " Whiteley said.

But students were not confined by the boundaries of the campus; some became leaders in Austin as well. The city felt the impact of UT leaders in areas ranging from business to education to government. Students served on boards, led rallies, volunteered in schools and hospitals, worked in the media and debated issues that affected the entire city. Their dedication and influence often resulted in changes that bettered conditions for both students and Austin residents; for example, the Texas Union Board of Directors dedicated a new Asian Culture Room in the Union, giving Asian-Americans a place to find periodicals from their home countries and to display the artwork of their diverse cultures. These local leaders made their mark on Austin today while gaining valuable experience and preparing for even bigger roles tomorrow. edited by Meredith Leigh Whitten photo by Annelies Schlickenrieder Student Leadership 181 LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL ttending school as large as the Universi- ty of Texas, some students may have felt that they could anonymously go through college lost in a constantly growing crowd. However, by offering programs targeted at the unique needs of various students, the Dean of Stu- dents Office tried to see to it that every student made the most of the oppor- tunities the University offered. Everyone freshmen, transfer stu- dents, minority students, Greeks, non- traditional adult students, students with disabilities, campus leaders, members of student organizations, and even stu- dents who fit none of those categories could find assistance at the Dean of Students Office. " We remove barriers and try to help each student be suc- cessful here. And we try to create a sense of community for students, even in a place so large, " Sharon Justice, dean of students, said. Services ranged from summer orien- tation to the Preview Program, from wheelchair repair to banking services for student organizations, and from the Greek Leadership Conference to pro- grams to promote academic integrity.

In 1989, the orienta- tion program supplemented its usual events with the introduction of an ex- periment in cultural diversity. With the aid of a filmed experiment in racial discrimination, orientation ad- visors helped students see the cultural variety present at the University. Ad- visors and Students ' Association mem- bers facilitated small group discussions after the orientees viewed the film. During these discussions, students talked about their own experiences with racism, such as discrimination in schol- arship awards. The purpose of the mul- ticulturalism program was to give the new students a positive awareness of how culturally diverse the University was. " The point of the multiculturalism program is to get students to interact with other races, " Kim Fulcher, broad- cast journalism junior, said. The biggest task for the orientation advisors was to help students pre- register for classes in the fall. This job was accomplished through pre-advising sessions and wing meetings in which new students were informed of require- ments, given registration materials, and provided with other pertinent informa- tion. The OAs also informed them about student services such as the Fresh Start and First programs for freshman, mid- semester pre-advising and a finals sur- vival program. The orientation program left many of its participants with good feelings. " The greatest reward for the OAs is being remembered by students and knowing they made a difference in those students ' lives. The OAs are the core of the program. They convey a warm, comfortable feeling to the orientees, " Maralyn Heimlich, assistant dean of students and head of freshmen services, said. " The Orientation Program is special because I have made life-long friends with the other OAs. I feel good when freshmen remember me because I have made an impact on their lives, whether it was a joke I told or help I gave them in planning their schedules, " Lyle Dubus, education junior, said. The OAs advised, informed and pre- registered many incoming students with programs and lots of laughs, making a life-long impact on the students they helped get started. by Nancy Shen AUDIO-VISUAL EXCITEMENT: Jenny Nolan, education senior, presents a slide presentation to incoming freshman on campus groups and ac- tivities. photo by Marines Hacker ORIENTATION ADVISORS Orientation Advisors 183 BO SOLVING FRESHMAN PROBLEMS %here are my classes? ' ' " How can I meet people? " " What is a bubble sheet or a blue book? " Questions such as these were answered by the Freshman Services staff through three programs: START FRESH, the Welcome Pro- gram and FIRST. START FRESH welcomed new freshmen to the campus and introduced them to the lighter side of campus life. The theme of the 1989 program was " Don ' t let UT blow you away. " It en- compassed parties and movies designed to help new freshmen meet and get to know each other. " I went to the Hurricane Party on August 31, 1989, and had a super good time meeting other freshmen, " Danielle Durand, government fresh- man, said. " Since this was my first year at college, I had the opportunity within the first week of school to relate to other freshmen and get adjusted to campus involvement. " The Welcome Program was targeted at African-American and Mexican- American students. Current students served as welcomers and were matched with new students, who were the welcomees, according to each ' s ethnic background, college or region in which the student lived. The welcomer assist- ed the welcomee during the first few weeks of college by introducing him or her to the campus, answering questions and helping the student get involved. FIRST, which stood for Freshman Issue Resource Service Team, helped confused and lonely freshmen or those who just needed information. There, one could find a core of Orientation Advisors ready to listen. FIRST sponsored the New Student Phone-a-thon in which current students called new students to welcome them to the University; another project was mid-semester pre-advising where, prior to registration, trained orientation ad- visors were available to help freshmen prepare to see their faculty advisors. Other programs were offered to help with other freshman concerns. " We got a lot of phone calls from freshmen, and I was really glad that as an upperclassman, I could help them through the Freshman Service New Student Phone-a-thon. It was a great program, " peer advisor Lovelys Powell, government senior, said.

Therefore, the Dean of Students began a program five years ago to act as a guide for minority stu- dents entering the University. The program was called MAPS (Mapping A Plan to Success) and was developed to help minorities cope with the new environment and to make school an easier experience. " As a freshman or sophomore, you come and everything is totally new - how to study, paying attention to class, what the test is going to be like and getting old exams, " said Kory Guidry, biology senior and peer advisor. Although MAPS was " targeted for minority students, it is open to every- one, " said Rolando Gonzalez, program coordinator and student development specialist with MAPS. " We try to create a situation where we have a constant role model, " he said. Guidry, one of five peer advisors, said, " It ' s kind of a big-brother, big- sister kind of thing. " Some people will really get de- pressed about their grades and feel like the world is on their shoulders. We have to tell them to think about the future; that was the past, and you have to move on, " he said. MAPS was modeled after peer coun- sel groups that were being developed throughout the nation. With 36 vol- unteers, MAPS provided a variety of services. " It ' s been shown that the best way of learning is by teaching. People who become a part of us say it gives them a chance to rehearse " and it made them feel better about themselves, Gonzalez said. Among the services that MAPS of- fered was a Monday Night Study Ses- sion where students were able to get free tutoring from " upperclassmen who feel they are comfortable enough to help other freshmen and sophomores in basic courses, " Guidry said. Much like the map that guided stu- dents into a strange campus, MAPS provided guidance for the many that needed help in " building the road for tomorrow ' s success today.

" This is a support program in that basically three areas are covered: ac- ademic, social and cultural, " Wanda Nelson, assistant dean of students, said. The approximately 50 students who participated in the 1989 Preview pro- gram received academic support through supplemental instruction. SI leaders selected by the staff of the Learning Skills Center attended sec- ond-session summer classes with the freshmen and helped them with outside tutoring. " The SI leaders are there to help them master the concepts the courses are about, whether it be math or chem- istry or physics or sociology, " said Rosa Hunt, student development specialist with the Dean of Students Office.

About 1 3 mentors chosen from the stu- dent affairs staff monitored the prog- ress of Preview participants, attending activities with them and meeting with them three times a semester through- out their college experience. Besides mentors, the freshmen also had peer counselors to meet with once a week. Besides choosing mentors for the program, Hunt also was in charge of coming up with cultural enrichment ac- tivities for the students. In 1989, about 50 students, mentors and peer coun- selors loaded up two buses and headed to Dallas to visit the Ramses exhibit. Students also attended plays and other fine arts performances in Austin. The program ' s planners tried to expose stu- dents to different cultures as well as their own. " We ' ve tried real hard to give it a good balance so they were learning about both (African-American and Mexican-American heritages), " Hunt said. Preview participants also enjoyed so- cial activities. Some, such as a cookout held in a nearby park, were organized by the program ' s planners; other un- official gatherings were initiated by the students. According to Nelson, the program paid off for these freshmen. " Previous students have been scholarship recip- ients, " she said. In addition, the students made lasting friendships, and always had a place to turn for support during their college career. " They become a tightly-knit group, finding support from one another, " Nelson said. " Those friendships tend to last through freshma i year at least! " Robin Mayhall I REVIEW 186 Preview GLIMPSE AT COLLEGE LIFE tudents Helping Ad- missions ' Recruit- ment Effort worked to increase the number of college- bound minority students from Austin area high schools by organizing the Col- lege Awareness Program. SHARE presented the program to black and Hispanic high school students to show them the many different as- pects of college life. " The College Awareness Program is focused on getting minority students interested in college in a general sense, " Patricia Parker, coordinator of SHARE, said. Approximately 150 Austin area high school students attended the College Awareness Day, where they listened to members of the UT faculty speak and took campus tours. A panel of SHARE members also was on hand to answer questions. One method of recruitment was Hometown Holiday Recruiting. During the break between semesters, SHARE members returned to their high schools to talk to students interested in attend- ing the University. The prospective stu- dents were given information about ad- missions requirements, financial aid, housing and placement tests. " The high school students learn more about the UT experience from the current students than from any oth- er program in the admissions office, " Parker said. SHARE also organized programs for minority students who had already been accepted to the University. SHARE members invited high school seniors to spend two days at the University, where they were matched up with a SHARE student mentor. The students stayed in campus dorms and attended class with their mentors, experiencing college life firsthand. " The students are excited to learn all about campus life, " mentor Valerie Walker, psychology freshman, said. " They listen to everything we tell them.

Many of these students never set foot in the building in north campus except once each year during flu season. Yet the Health Center offered many services beyond curing common winter ailments. " The core of our health center is the medical services, " said Jeanne Carpen- ter, assistant to the director of the Stu- dent Health Center. " Yet our overall mission is the health education of stu- dents. " Two main divisions handled most of the center ' s student services. The Nurse Counseling Special Serv- ices offered travel counseling to stu- dents who would be traveling overseas. The service offered immunizations, if necessary, and gave advice to the trav- elers. Anonymous HIV antibody testing also was available through nurse coun- seling. Carpenter said students used fake names and saw the same nurse for testing and receiving results, and no records were kept of the test, making the entire process " very anonymous. " The Health Education Unit kept stu- dents informed in a variety of areas. The Nutrition Education Program offered information and counseling on eating disorders, weight management and cholesterol. The Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Program (CADEP) featured peer instructor programs, in- dividual counseling and an alcohol ed- ucation class. The Sexual Health Pro- gram used peer instructors, workshops, literature and events around campus to encourage safe sexual behavior. Student organizations requested the workshops, and the trained peer in- structors then applied what they had learned the semester before. " We give workshops on everything ranging from alcohol to marijuana and cocaine, " said Cristina Galvan, pre- pharmacy senior. The instructors also manned the sub- stance abuse table during the health fair, and participated in National Col- legiate Alcohol Awareness Week. Part of CADEP included an Alcohol and Drug Liaison Committee, which consisted of 20 people representing groups on campus. The Union, the Di- vision of Housing and Food Service, Intercollegiate Athletics, the Panhel- lenic Association, the Students ' Asso- ciation and the Interfraternity Council were represented on the committee. " The committee addresses the issue of alcohol and drug abuse on campus, " said Dr. Jerry Horton, co-coordinator of CADEP. " Right now we ' re looking at a proposal to some of the local drink- ing establishments. We ' re trying to get them to participate in a designated driv- er program. " The program would allow the driver to drink non-alcoholic bev- erages during an evening out. Horton also counseled individuals who had problems with drugs or al- cohol. Students were referred to the program by the Dean of Students and from the Counseling and Mental Health Center. Others came in them- selves, realizing that they needed help. " I ' m getting more and more self- referrals as people are hearing about the program, " Horton said. Just walking into the lobby on the fourth floor of the center was educa- tional. All over the offices of the Health Education Unit lay brochures with in- formation ranging from the fat content of fast foods to detailed instructions, directions and pros and cons of various methods of contraception.

The University Res- ident Halls Association became in- volved in a project that conveyed a similiar message to children in an el- ementary school. As part of a program called Adopt- A- School, dorm residents visited students at Ortega Elementary School in East Austin. The UT students, whom the kids at Ortega called " spirit sponsors, " went to the school at least once a week to talk with their students. The children at Ortega looked for- ward to the visits from their spirit spon- sors, URHA representative Melanie Andrews, zoology sophomore, said. " They all know who we are, " she said " They all want someone to come and talk to them. " Spirit sponsors helped students with school work, talked with them about their lives, and told them about the opportunities for education beyond el- ementary school. " I want to show them that school can be fun, " Adopt-A- School program co-chairperson Debbie Sanders, psychology sophomore, said. The UT students provided moral support as well. " Encouragement is a big part of it, " Sanders said. " Kids real- ly do need it, even if it ' s just one day a week. It helps. They ' re not getting a lot of attention at home.

" The majority of the students at Or- tega were minorities. Adopt-A-School volunteers worked with kids in grades 1-5. Other areas volunteers worked in in- cluded organizing and coaching athletic- events and fund raising to help replace outdated athletic equipment. Most of the Ortega students admired their spirit sponsors even though at first they tended to be shy. " They look up to anyone who ' s tall enough and grown up enough to be a role model, " Sanders said. Many people volunteered for the project because they liked kids. Others wanted to share their appreciation of education with others. Adopt-A-School gave students at the University a chance to take higher education off campus.

" We usually only have access to the floor we live on, but we wanted to get more involved with the dorm as a whole, " Ronnica Wingfield, liberal arts sophomore, said. The advisors cooperated primarily with other women ' s dorms in " the quad. " The quad consisted of four dorms that shared a courtyard An- drews, Blanton, Carothers and Lit- tlefield. The advisors also sponsored ac- tivities with some of the men ' s dorms. In the spring, the four dorms carried on the yearly tradition known as SYR, or Surprise Your Roommate. That night, to the theme of " Once Upon a Time, " each dorm played a different role by hosting different events. An- drews, decorated with Sleeping Beauty props and hosted movies. In addition, residents ventured to the other dorms for a dance, a casino and breakfast. " SYR gives us a good opportunity to meet people who live in the quad, and gives us a chance to work together, " Nancy Bedingfield, pre-business soph- omore, said. " It forces you to interact with every- one else because you could just stay in your room and go to class and never get to know anyone, " Jeannine Monnier, psychology junior, said.

Only this time, it was not a dream. Advisors from Blanton and Brackenridge Roberts arranged the " Meet Your Perfect Mate Date " Burger Burn on Nov. 16 in hopes of unlocking the door to ideal relationships. Blanton advisors Suzanne Vontur, chemistry freshman, and Denise DeMartino, pre-vet freshman, originat- ed the idea of the " Perfect Mate " Bur- ger Burn and tried to make it " more personal " than a computer dating match-up. Their questionnaire utilized situational multiple-choice question s and even a short essay question to find the hidden emotions and creativity of the applicants. Also, a few days before the actual Burger Burn, residents re- ceived a list of three candidates along with their phone numbers, in case they wanted to break the ice early. The success rate of such a venture could be hard to measure. One prob- lem, according to Vontur, was that at first " people took it too seriously. " Overall, however, they received a lot of positive comments. " We were happiest to find that cou- ples who were already dating were matched up with each other, " DeMar- tino said. Also, the success could be measured by the approximately 175 people who participated in the event. Due to the positive feedback and the good turnout, the advisory considered making the Burger Burn an annual event. " Unifying the dorm and making peo- ple feel welcome " was the special pur- pose of the advisory, President Chris- tine London, government junior, said. These intentions were fulfilled by the burger burn and the spring Surprise Your Roommate dance. The advisors also split up into small groups that con- ducted monthly service projects and fundraisers. For example, some educa- tional programs were given on the con- temporary issues of date rape and prop- er condom use. The Blanton advisory served as big sisters by promoting friendship and giv- ing advice, and even helped in a girl ' s never-ending search for Mr. Right.

" As long as you voice it, it is pos- sible, " Karen Ellyson, home economics freshman, said. The council meant business when the members sat down with Doug James, associate director for staff and student services in the Division of Housing and Food Service, to discuss a few outdated features in their dorm. They raised money for new microwaves and planned to purchase floor rugs. Another goal was to provide oppor- tunities for students to get involved. Members wanted the dorm to provide a way to meet people and not be con- sidered just a place to sleep and eat. " Your closest friends are going to come from the dorm, since it ' s your first year and you don ' t know anybody else, " President Karen Jackson, govern- ment junior, said. " I wanted to help people be a part of something and make the dorm not just a place to stay. I wanted them to be involved and have fun, " Karina Cubilla, psychology sophomore, said. " We plan lots of ice breakers to get to meet all the girls in the dorm, " Jackson said. The representatives also made plans for the residents to meet other dorms ' members. Many of the activities they planned were joint efforts by other campus dorms. " The Renaissance Festival had peo- ple from all of the dorms, and the SYR dance was an effort put together by all four of the girls ' dorms, " Jackson said. " Basically, we provide the residents with fun here at home. It ' s like we are a huge family, " Ellyson said. " A lot of the time the stuff we plan are things we would do alone or with our friends, but the hall government makes it easy for people to do those things that they may not have thought of. It makes it more fun when we take more people, " Jackson said. Laura Camden FRONT ROW: Laura Lu Reese, Elizabeth Dian Oden. Georgina Miramontes, Melissa Madrid, Karen Lynne Jackson.

CASINO NIGHT TURNS UP AN ACE he cards were on the table. Anticipation filled the faces of the players as the dealer turned over the next card: an ace. Screams of victory came from the win- ning player, who then collected his chips and headed off to continue his lucky streak at the craps table. Castilian Residence Assistants trans- formed the Castilian ' s cafeteria into a casino March 2 for the dorm ' s annual Casino Night. Although the night be- gan at 8:30 for the 600 residents who attended the event, it began much ear- lier for the RAs. The 12 RAs began planning in January, dividing the need- ed tasks among them. " There was a lot of arranging to take care of from hiring blackjack dealers to making sure decorations were bought, " Reid Ainsworth, management senior, said. The RAs did everything from so- liciting prizes from local merchants to manual labor in the dining hall to make sure that the night was rich with ex- citement. " We began decorating the cafeteria Thursday after dinner and continued Friday after lunch. We had to clear all the tables and chairs out of there be- tween 6 and 8 p.m., " Ainsworth said. Professional dealers handled gam- bling at the craps, roulette and black- jack tables. Winners were given chips which they redeemed later for tickets, which went towards a raffle at the end of the evening. Prizes included items such as a CD player and $500 cash. " Many returning residents said it was better than last year ' s (Casino Night), " Ricci Belk, public relations senior, said. " Cleanup was the only bad part, " Belk said. " Luckily many of the applicants for next year ' s RA positions helped us with the cleanup, which lasted past 4 a.m. " The following morning, after the last red-eyed gamblers had gone home, Cas- tilian residents found their cafeteria back to normal, leaving only the pre- vious night ' s memories, and maybe a few winning chips in their pockets.

Littlefield residents were united in ter- ror on October 30, thanks to the Lit- tlefield Advisory, who were devoted to scheduling activities that promoted dorm unity.

Social activities such as the ghost sto- ries promoted interaction among the girls. The advisory also encouraged in- teraction with the community by fo- cusing upon the Texas School for the Deaf. The residents celebrated Christ- mas with a party with Santa for the hearing-impaired children, and in the spring they participated in a field day filled with games and snacks. The special purpose of the advisory was " to carry on University traditions while keeping up the friendliness and closeness " of Littlefield, Avery said. The family environment of the dorm worked with the advisory ' s programs to enchance freshman life. And unity was promoted in the most unusual ways, even to the point of " scaring " residents into friendship.

BIDDING WARS: Residents of Moore-Hill and Kinsolving compete for an indentured servant up for bid. photos by Denise Hutto A T AUCTION RAISES BIG BUCKS T ? hen the Moore-Hill Hall Council was looking for activities and fundrais- ers to fill their calendar, they passed over the usual, predictable ideas. One of the most unique events they thought of was the indentured servant auction. The men of Moore-Hill got together with Kinsolving Dormitory one Sunday afternoon to bargain and haggle as they auctioned off their fellow residents to the highest bidder from the other dorm. Because the event was a fund- raiser, real money was used, with each dorm netting about $100. " We were just brainstorming for money-raising ideas and we thought of the auction, " Vice-president Larry Jones, finance junior, said. " We needed a fundraiser. Somebody had an auction in high school so we did it. It was a lot of fun for a first time thing, " President Lee O ' Neal, business sophomore, said. O ' Neal said the average guy went for $6 or $8, while most girls, who opted to be sold in pairs, sold for about $15. " We set a minimum bid of $3 so no one felt bad or bid something like 50 cents, " Jones said. Once purchased, the indentured ser- vant spent a day with whoever bought him or her. The reasons for purchasing MOORE-HILL HALL COUNCIL someone varied, but most just helped with things such as errands. " We did things like get her lunch or run errands. One floor of Moore-Hill got together and bought several girls to clean their rooms, " O ' Neal said. " Most people did things like wash cars and iron. Some even took them out to eat, " Jones said. Many residents from both dorms came to participate in the auction, which was held in the Kinsolving lobby. " There was a good turn-out from both Kinsolving and Moore-Hill, " Jones said. " I ' d say it was very success- ful. " Meredith Whitten 196 Moore-Hill Hall Council HELP ELPING THE ENVIRONMENT ratefully un- loading armfuls of The Daily Texan, empty cans of Diet Coke, old syllabuses from grouchy professors and colorful pieces of broken glass, the women from the UT Women ' s Co-op Houses cleared their rooms of valuable and recyclable material and deposited it into barrels on their back porch. " I ' m really glad that all the co-ops are involved with the recycling project, " Debbie Abramson, government senior, said. " It makes me feel good about my- self whenever I donate, because I ' m es- sentially doing my part to preserve the environment. " The recycling project was started af- ter one of the residents wrote a letter to the house manager suggesting the re- cycling of material to protect the en- vironment. The houses officially began donating in October. The donations helped the locally based Ecology Action Committee. This Austin environmental organization fur- nished the barrels, which were picked up on call. With more than 200 clients in the Austin area, the committee crushed the aluminum and glass in its warehouse while it sold the paper products to ACCO Waste Paper, an- other local company, which then re- distributed the paper. " We definitely count on the UT Women ' s Co-op Houses for the mate- rials they save in order to help us cover our daily cost, " said the office manager of the Ecology Action Committee, who would only identify herself as Kathryn. The UT Women ' s Co-Op Houses ex- panded their program to include brown, green and clear glass, office pa- per, newspaper and any type of alu- minum or tin cans. The only problem with this project was that transients sometimes stole the aluminum for their own purposes. Natalie Derwelis, geography junior and the house manager of the Almetris Co-op, said, " I think our recycling proj- ect is representative of our co-op phi- losophy, in that we ' re working together for the common good.

At the University, the answer was the Texas Student Publications Board of Operating Trustees. The student, faculty and professional members of the TSP Board were re- sponsible for overseeing the policies and budgets of The Daily Texan, Utmost magazine, the Cactus yearbook, the Per- egrinus law school yearbook and KTSB radio. In addition to the 1 1 voting members of the board, the editor or manager of each of the publications served as a non-voting member. A proposal to change the qualifica- tions for Daily Texan editor and man- aging editor was proposed to the TSP Board. The proposal attempted to change guidelines under which editor applicants had to complete 1 5 hours of courses in the Department of Journal- ism to qualify for editor and managing editor positions. The proposal would have allowed editing experience at the Daily Texan to substitute for taking the classes. " A lot of people are not applying for the positions because they had other majors and couldn ' t get the required journalism classes, " President Ellen Williams, second-year law student, said. Daily Texan Editor Karen Adams, Plan II senior, said she was not sur- prised that the changes were proposed. " I think people recognize the fact that the requirements are too restrictive, " Adams said. Some people were concerned that waiving the class requirements would intensify the communication gap be- tween the journalism department and the Daily Texan, Williams said. " I think the problem needs to be addressed, " she said. The board considered ap- pointing an unofficial committee to look into options for solving the prob- lem, Williams said. All the hard work for the changes in guidelines came to naught, however, when a 5 to 5 TSP Board vote struck down the measure. " We just want to have more time to study the effects of this proposal, " board member Martin Gibson said. With four print publications and one radio station in constant operation, problems were bound to come up. The members of the TSP Board worked be- yond their monthly meetings to solve the problems the publications faced. Monica Noordam TEXAS STUDENT PUBLICATIONS BOARD 198 TSP Board STAFFS FIND LOCAL CLIENTS magine your body sudden- ly losing its backbone. Life ' s simplest daily tasks would be difficult, if not impossible, to perform. After all, what would support the main frame? What would keep the internal organs and bones from turning into a chaotic mess? Inevitably, the body would cease to function. Just as the backbone supported the body, the Texas Student Publications Advertising Staff supported The Daily Texan financially. Advertising funded the newspaper, which reached approximately 94 per- cent of UT students and faculty. Be- cause of the large amount of advertising involved, two distinct staffs dealt with classified and with retail advertising. The classified staff was composed of a supervisor, Evelyn Gardner, and 16 stu- dents whose majors ranged from psy- chology to government to, of course, advertising. " Being on ad staff doesn ' t have any- thing to do with your major. It ' s a good part-time job which teaches students how to communicate with various types of people and businesses, " Shawn McMinn, history sophomore, said. The staff was divided into three groups. The clerks answered the phones and entered the ads into the computer, while the telemarketers did the actual calling of both new and old businesses. The classified display sec- tion viewed the apartment complexes and met the owners of new businesses. The retail advertising staff was man- aged by Pauline Lawrence, who han- dled problems and sought new leads. " The success of good advertising in- volves a lot of research, " Lawrence said. To attract customers, the staff kept a watchful eye out on new businesses, other publications and radio and tel- evision advertisements. While other members of The Daily Texan earned recognition through their bylines, the advertising staff usually re- mained anonymous. Yet their work did not go completely unrecognized. To honor those individuals who reached a certain quota, the retail section often announced the celebrant in The Daily Texan. However, the writers and pho- tographers understood that the adver- tising staffs were the backbone of the Texan, and honored them with some- thing more rewarding than a byline respect.

Were you a fresh- man looking for a way to get involved and meet people? Or were you just try- ing to improve your writing skills? If so, you could find what you were looking for in the office of the Cactus yearbook. The main purpose of the Cactus was to preserve a piece of UT history with the production of a yearbook. Staffers and editors worked throughout the year to gather stories and pictures about campus organizations, athletic teams and important events. " It ' s a lot of work, but it ' s really worthwhile, because, I mean, I think our work is important here. Somebody has to do it, " Greek Goddess II and informal social director Laura Stevens, undecided senior, mused. Not only did editors put out a 600- page yearbook, they also served the Austin community. On weekends dur- ing the fall 1989 semester, groups of editors and staffers helped Parks and Recreation Department employees in picking up trash, hanging soccer nets and cleaning toilets in Zilker Park. " We thought it was a good idea to spread a little sunshine on the Austin community, " quoth Phabulous Photophiliac Hannes Hacker, Ph.D. candidate in Panamanian folk dance. Editors said that community service was only one of the benefits they re- ceived from working for the yearbook. They held several parties during the year, and cited a memorable evening at Mt. Bonnell as the most entertaining event of the fall semester. " From what I can remember, the par- DECISIONS, DECISIONS: Barbara Neyens, Robin Mayhall, and Meredith Whitten debate whether Danny or.

The beginning of the Christmas party was fun, but I don ' t really remember how it ended. Some- thing about a stove, " Stevens chortled. In sum, most said the Cactus was sim- ply a great place to work.

Deftly, the Cactus photographer reached into his vest and extracted a sawed-off shotgun. Buffy only had time to transform her face into a visage of horror before the gun belched leaden death. Well, not really. But sometimes, when mistaken for a Phototech photographer, Cactus shooters were tempted. The arduous weekend shifts when photographers were required to shoot student organization parties were not the only perils of the job, though. After a long shift, the photographers had to process their film and get prints in by deadline time. " Caffeine bursts of killer Cactus coffee are a definite motivator for my all-night print sessions, " Carrie Dawson, ancient Sumerian basketweaving sophomore and Cactus Combat Photographer, said. But the job had its perils. " You know when you get bleach-fix in a hangnail. I hate when that happens. It ' s a new dimension of pain, " Photo Editor Hannes Hacker, Ph.D. candidate in Panamanian folk dance, said. Cactus photographers shot approximately 8,000 pictures for the annual. After adding in portraits made by Varden Studios, the total number of photographs published in the Cactus was over 15,000. Despite the difficulties of the job, Cactus photographers still had lots of fun. " I love the smell of Dektol in the morning, " Richard Goebel, miscellaneous freshman, said. Despite their often frustrating duties, the talented crew of Cactus photographers managed to keep their sense of humor and keep the annual full of incredible photos. Laura Camden 202 Cactus Photographers r i i BRINGING HISTORY INTO FOCUS he Peregrinus was more than a book it was an animal. As the mascot of the UT School of Law, the Peregrinus symbolized the le- gal system in action: the sharp beak to rip away the mysteries of the law, an arched back to spring forward for jus- tice, the rear end of a dog man ' s best friend and a bushy tail to sweep away the technicalities of the law. The Peregrinus was an animal to pro- duce as well. The search for an Editor spanned an entire semester, leaving only the spring for completion. " Usually, somebody from the previ- ous year will come back, but last year there were only two staffers and both were seniors, " Jerry Thompson, Super- visor of Yearbooks, said. 1 990 Peregrinus editor and freshman law student Jay Aldis suggested fear as a reason for the seeming lack of interest. " Because of the great time commitment that law school represents, students don ' t want to bother with anything else. They get scared that the editorship or any job might affect their grades and study time. " The amount of time involved has taken my mind off my studies, " Aldis said, " and because of over two weeks of finals coming up, I ' m going to have to do the bulk of the editing and layouts after May 1 1. " In the interim, however, Aldis came up with some creative ideas for the 1990 yearbook. Researching old photos from the Cac- tus yearbook and the Peregrinus in the Barker Texas History Center, Aldis at- tempted to focus on the school ' s his- torical perspective. " Only every 10 years do we have the chance to enter a new decade, and to look at how the school has changed over that time. What I ' m trying to do is bring out how we ' ve changed over a long time, from an all-male institution to a culturally diverse and nationally respected law school, by using photos. " Another aspect that changed was the design. The cover, type and organiza- tion of the book was created to be as identical to a law school casebook as possible. " A casebook is something every stu- dent at the law school has in common, " Aldis said. " It ' s something easily iden- tifiable that resides at the heart of a law school education. So, when, 20 years from now, they look at the book, it ' ll all come back to them. " John R. Edwards Jr. PEREGRINUS STAFF: Jay Ronald Aldis, Mike John Yanochik, Michael O ' Neal Whitmire. photo by Charles Walbridge PEREGRINUS YEARBOOK Peregrinus Yearbook 203 G A CONSTANT BUZZ alking into the TSP basement, one could im- mediately sense the electricity that poured from the Daily Texan. Against a backdrop of computers, telephones and people moving to and fro, the Texan staffers and photographers worked fer- vently to produce yet another paper for a new day. Completing a top-notch college news- paper meant getting the paper ready for distribution around campus each morning. This tight schedule ensured that there was never a dull moment in the office. " The newsroom is generally busy all day, especially during the af- ternoon and evening hours when we are writing, editing and preparing the pa- per for printing, " Copy Editor Susan LaRonde, journalism senior, said. Along with maintaining a hustle-and- bustle routine, the Daily Texan was chal- lenged with some new ideas concerning its publication Images, the entertain- ment magazine inserted once a week in the paper. " One of our main objectives this year is to upgrade and increase the circu- lation of Images throughout and beyond the University of Texas campus, " As- sistant Editor Steve Crawford, liberal arts senior, said. In the wake of criticism, the Texan staff strove to be more sensitive when it came to minorities. Editors sought to acquire more staffers from different cultural groups on campus. " We would really like to have more people on the Daily Texan staff who can express the ideas of some of the unique organizations that we have here at UT, " Crawford said. Crawford said that in spite of some new faces and new ideas, the atmos- phere at the Texan had not changed. " The room is always charged, allowing for people to do some strange things, " he said.

KTSB Austin ' s Alternative, UT ' s own student radio station, played a vital role in exposing local recording artists to a wide audience of radio listeners. " If a band wants to get something played, the best place for them to bring it is here [KTSB], because if they ' re local, then it ' s more likely that they will get it on [the air], " Station Manager Chuck Ashley, philosophy senior, said. In addition to airing local music, KTSB sponsored frequent benefits which featured live music by local bands, allowing students and Austin residents to listen to a wide variety of home-grown talent in a festive setting. " At the Austin Chronicle Music Awards, KTSB came in fourth place in the best local radio station category, even though we are not broadcasting yet and not many people in the city get to hear us on a regular basis. I think that says a lot about KTSB and its im- pact on Austin as well as what Austin wants in a radio station, " Publicity Man- KTSB AUSTIN ' S ALTERNATIVE 206 KTSB Austin ' s Alternative tol ager Scott Anderson, communications junior, said. KTSB also supported South by Southwest, a music and media confer- ence that came regularly to Austin, al- lowing local musicians to gain exposure to top recording executives and helping local bands ' chances of landing major recording contracts with prominent la- bels. In 1989, bands such as Poi Dog Pondering had recently signed major contracts. But perhaps the most important ser- vice that KTSB rendered for the local music scene was playing local bands that would not get played at any other local radio stations. " We support the local music scene by playing the local bands that nobody else will play, but that the local people go to see, " Anderson said. Much of the local music that KTSB played was welcomed by those Austin residents who wanted to hear more lo- cal bands on the radio but who couldn ' t hear it on any other local stations. " There ' s a big unserved audience in Austin. People who like to listen to local music . . . may not get enough attention from the other stations, " Ashley said. " We aim to fill a void in the community that exists now, as well as becoming an integral part of the [local] music scene. " What was amazing was that KTSB had such a profound impact on local music when it was available only through a cable television hookup. " I think that it [KTSB] is going to be an even bigger factor in driving the Austin music scene in the future, be- cause once we ' re on the air, it ' s really going to change things. Suddenly there ' s going to be a station that is real- ly doing a good job of promoting local music, " Ashley said.

Winning awards was not enough to sat- isfy their drive for success; all year, they strove to create a better journal of stu- dent-oriented material. Utmost magazine provided students with a unique alternative to other Aus- tin-area publications. Released quarter- ly, the magazine was filled with " relevant, timely, interesting and ed- ucational " student interest stories. " The articles center upon subjects that I would like to read if I were a normal student, " Editor-in-Chief Jen- nifer Wong, Plan II senior, said. Stories were selected on the basis of their appeal to students. Not only was material solicited from free-lance writ- ers, but the staff of 1 1 permanent mem- bers also completed assignments with the help of more than 30 interns. The success of the quarterly depic- tion of student issues was apparent in the many awards it earned. Virtually every year, Utmost won the Pacemaker Award, one of the highest honors in college journalism. But as Wong said, " We ' re not here for awards. We ' re just here to have some fun and learn some- thing. " The production of the magazine was never affected by the hopes of an award-winning year. Rather, each issue was valued as unique and different be- cause it carried its own new message and outlook on a current situation. The best part about working on the Utmost staff was described by Art Ed- itor-in-Chief Erin Mayes, photojournal- ism senior. Mayes said, " It puts your talents to use. Instead of flipping burgers, we get the satisfaction of cre- ating a concrete product and the feeling that we are actually making a differ- ence. " An award was just a piece of paper; what seemed to motivate the Utmost staff was to make the magazine an em- bodiment of current student life.

He acknowledges other people farther back in the line as he goes about serving cookies and beverages at the Union ' s Cookie Connection. The Texas Union was a popular place for students to study, relax or grab a meal between classes, but many came to the Union to work. Jennings, finance Russian junior, was just one of approximately 320 part- time students employed by the Union. From the rec center in the basement to the advertising department on the fifth floor, students could be found working in almost every part of the building. Reasons for working at the Union varied almost as much as the jobs stu- dents performed, but most found the convenience and flexible work schedule appealing. " It ' s a great PR job, " Hilary Thomas, English senior, said. " We talk to a lot of people, so we know what ' s going on around campus, " Tammy Dunn, elementary education junior, said. Both Thomas and Dunn worked at the Student Activities desk, where they helped the registered stu- dent organizations and assisted the Un- ion student committees. " This job is real flexible and ex- tremely convenient, " Karla Keeton, English senior, said. " I love this atmos- phere; it ' s real laid back. " Keeton, who worked in the Campus Store, did " everything from setting up displays to doing inventory. " Many students found out about the job opportunities through friends. The Union ' s personnel department also helped to place students. Some, how- ever, found out by other methods. " I was at freshman orientation and I got this packet that said something about go to the Union and get a job, so I did, " Jennings said. Jennings worked at the Union for three years " because I never have to work weekends and it coincides with school holidays. " Curtis Menchaca, psychology junior, and Alina Flores, elementary education junior, worked in the Copy Center, one of the busiest parts of the Union. They helped students with copies and pre- pared packets for professors. The job did have its ups and downs, they said. " We meet so many people here and it ' s really convenient to work on cam- pus, " Flores said. " We make all of those posters you see around campus and help with people ' s resumes. Basically, we just help stu- dents, " Menchaca said. " But I don ' t like taking crap from customers. Everyone wants it here and now. " Jack Middleton, radio television film junior, found the convenience of working at the Union reason enough to sign up for a second job. When not working at the information desk in the lobby, Middleton was a doorman at the Texas Tavern. " I practically live here, " he said. Regardless of why students chose to work at the Union or what their job entailed, they all shared the opportu- nity to serve their peers while gaining experience and expertise that helped make the Union run smoother.

But the board ' s actions were not limited to the Coke boycott. On the contrary, the board made sev- eral positive changes in 1989-90, re- flecting the Union ' s commitment to multiculturalism. The group estab- lished special non-voting minority liai- son positions to ensure minority rep- resentation, and dedicated a new Asian Culture Room where Asian-American groups could meet. " I think the minority liaison positions are the most positive thing we have done, " Neel Baumgardner, business junior, said. " The board has not tra- ditionally been a very diverse group, and several members brought up the concern . . . that the board did not re- flect the composition of the campus. " Positions were established for Asian- American, African-American and Mex- ican-American liaisons to make sure that the concerns of those communities would be addressed at board meetings. " It ' s not a token program. It ' s not meant to be that those three minorities will be the only minority members. It ' s meant to ensure that there will be at least those three minority members on our board, " Baumgardner said. The liaisons immediately proved their value and commitment. Brandon Powell, the African-American liaison, instigated the discussion that led to the Coke boycott a decision, Baum- gardner said, based on the Union ' s re- sponsibility to educate students about issues like apartheid. " I think the board viewed this as a moral decision. Let ' s be realistic the Union not selling Coke beverages is not going to break us, " Baumgardner said. Neeta Vallab, Asian-American liai- son, also was active, helping in the es- tablishment of UNB 4.224 as the Asian Culture Room. She said the room would provide a place for the Asian student groups to meet, as well as to find Asian periodicals and to display artwork. " One of the biggest benefits of this room and any other room the Union has is to promote multiculturalism, " Vallab, Plan II senior, said. In addition to these activities, the board also commissioned the Office of Internal Audits to study the Union ' s finances and make recommendations as to cutting back on inefficiencies and better allocating funds. " I think the stu- dents only deserve that, because we ' re the guardians of my money and every- one else ' s money, so we want to make sure that it ' s spent wisely, " Baum- gardner said. But he confirmed that the creation of the minority liaison positions was, in his opini on, the most important action tak- en by the board. " I really think it ' s been a very dominant force in shaping how the year has gone, " he said. Robin Mayhall a mil 212 Texas Union Board of Directors COUNCIL ' S PROGRAMS CLOSE CULTURAL GAP As members of the Texas Un- ion Program Council planned programs to entertain and enlighten the students and staff of the University, they also made efforts to achieve the underlying ideal of all Union committee program- ming: the creation and active support of a multicultural environment. The TUPC implemented this philos- ophy into the events and projects spon- sored by the 1 1 Union committees of which it was formed. Each committee had a special area of interest, such as minority, cultural and international awareness and social and political issues. " The main goal of the group is to promote multiculturalism in our pro- grams, which is something we ' ve done LECT ON 10 make a wdy, " Baiim- cUJOGol as, in his ran trod ;.-,:: in the past, but there ' s a lot more em- phasis on it this year, " TUPC coor- dinator Dina Thomas, market- ing finance junior, said. " The TUPC provides programming that is educa- tional and multicultural. Committee members are learning about different cultures. " Students from all walks of life were encouraged to join the committees and attend the events the TUPC scheduled, from rallies and speeches to interna- tional mixers and film festivals. " We ' re trying to make it more open, to where anyone who feels like if they want to be on a Union committee, they can, " said Thomas. " Something that ' s really increased this year is diversity on the cultural committees, having non-minorities jo- ing the culture committees, like Afri- can-American, Asian, and Chicano Cul- ture committees, " she said. In addition to planning programs for the general student body, the TUPC also encouraged its committee mem- bers to attend each other ' s functions to increase their own cultural awareness. " We ' re always incorporating new programs and trying to work out, in all the committees, a more open sense to other cultures, " Karen Knippa, history sophomore, said. " We ' re trying to broaden our horizons. " Meredith Whitten FRONT ROW: Amy Elizabeth Drew. Dina Thomas. Laura Eliz- abeth Haworth, Bertha Marissa Lozano, Nicole Hollingshoad Chaput.

Davis author, scholar and human rights activist was invited to the Uni- versity by the Texas Union African- American Culture Committee to com- memorate the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his work on the anni- versary of his birthday. Davis ' powerful words brought home to many people the problems facing the nation and the role each person had in their solution. " All of these problems abortion, poor education, apartheid in South Af- rica and racism are all related to people and their basic rights as human beings, " Joy Touchstone, Plan II jun- ior, said. Keeping to the theme of " Rekindling the Flame: A Renewed Commitment to Activism " , Davis strongly conveyed the need for people to continue fighting. " There are still many problems to be solved and they cannot be solved by themselves, " Richard Cook, education senior, said. " Angela Davis ' message to me was the need to continue activism in the black community. The struggle is not over yet for peoples, black or white, " Bridget Braxton, communication fresh- man, said. Many people came away from Davis ' talk with a positive attitude and an over- all excitement. " Several people were fired up. They just wanted to go out and do some- thing, " Touchstone said. Davis ' speech concluded an emotion- al day, which began with a march by students and community members to celebrate King ' s birthday. The march symbolized the coming together of all Americans, regardless of color, and brought King ' s dream forward into the 1990s. " The mission of the African- American Culture Committee is to reach the day when our true African- American history is respected and known on this campus and in the world, " Eric Dixon, broadcast journal- ism junior, said. The problems facing the black com- munity and other peoples struggling for their basic rights were brought to the forefront by Davis ' talk, which renewed activism as well as remembrance of Martin Luther King ' s work. 214 African-American Culture Committee STUDENTS HIGHLIGHT CULTURES OF ASIA Students with hundreds of different ethnic backgrounds interacted daily on the University campus, and the Texas Union Asian Culture Committee helped provide students with a better understanding of some of the cultures that were represented. Committee Chairman Ben Dai said most people were familiar with the cul- tures of China and Japan, but countries such as India and the Philippines were often overlooked. " We ' re trying to tar- get the lesser-known cultures. We sup- port the underdog cultures, " Dai, busi- ness sophomore, said. The Department of Asian Studies ;G with a aurch in BJ ognher unli if tie African- CaguttK is to Bit African- srflptctf I ud helped with programs, provided speak- ers and included committee events in its newsletter. " I think of all the (Union) commit- tees, we have the closest ties to a de- partment, " Dai said. " We really define what a committee is. " Radio proved to be a successful me- dium for exposing Asian cultures to the community. The committee sponsored a weekly, 30-minute program, Eastwinds, on KTSB student radio. Committee member Danny Fung, Asian studies junior, came up with the idea for Eastwinds. " I saw that as a good way to do something new, " Fung said. " KTSB was really receptive to the idea, even though we had no experi- ence in radio. " The live program consisted of tra- ditional and pop music from Asian countries, Asian news and a calendar of activities. " We want to let people that usually aren ' t familiar with what ' s going on with Asians know about Asian ac- tivities, " Fung said. At times, producing 30 minutes of programming weekly was difficult for the committee members. " Even though we ' re trying to be professional, we just try to do the best we can as amateurs, " Fung said. But Dai said that all activities the Asian Culture Committee worked with had been successful. " Every year we do more things with more organizations, " he said. " I don ' t see how it ' s going to be topped. " Monica Noordam FRONT ROW: Mimi Hoa Ly, Nancy Shin-Yii Jung, Shan-Yu Alice Chuan, Belle Madge Chen, Christine Lee, Cindy Shin-Di Tsai.

Suddenly, a blanket of silence fell over the serfs and wenches who had been frivolously dancing and singing. Even the court magicians put down their instruments and focused their at- tention center stage on King Wilifred. After welcoming the guests, the king proposed a toast and the Madrigal Din- ner was underway. Presented annually by the Texas Un- ion Campus Entertainment Committee, the Madrigal Dinner was the Union ' s showcase performance. The medieval banquet and play was totally produced and run by students. Open auditions were held to pick the cast, most of whom were non-drama majors. Sipping wassail and eating planter ' s bread, guests watched as the plot un- folded. In between acts, the serfs served a four-course meal and the cast mingled with the audience. Although the show was student-run, many who attended came from the local community. " It ' s gotten to be a large community thing, " committee chairperson Karen Knippa, history sophomore, said. " We mail flyers to local businesses, and we ' ve almost worked up an invitation-type thing. I think that ' s one reason we have such a draw from the community. " " The general public comes in hoards, " script writer Ernest Garcia, Spanish senior, said. " It brings in peo- ple outside of the University, and when they see what we ' re doing, they ' re more appreciative that the University and the Union are here. In addition to Austin residents, peo- ple came from as far away as Europe to attend the dinner. The committee wanted to draw more students to the Madrigal Dinner in the future, possibly expanding the show to two weekends. " We want to keep it where people want to come back and see what next year ' s play will be like, " Garcia said. " One lady from Houston said this was her first time to come but she wouldn ' t miss a year from now on. That makes it well worth it.

To this end, the committee sponsored " Latino Educa- tional Struggle, " a conference that ex- posed educational struggles faced by Hispanics. The event attracted a large crowd of varying ethnic groups. Speakers includ- ed Dr. Richard Valencia, State Sen. Gonzalo Barrientos and many others. " We are trying to educate the Latino community with the problems we are facing and the problems we will be fac- ing. The time for action is now. " Anna Alicia Arteaga, communications junior, said. " Twenty years from now we will be the majority minority not only in Texas but in a few other Southwestern states. Latinos are the fastest growing minority in the United States; we want to be a prepared majority. " The major problem addressed was the low college enrollment of Hispan- ics. This was a result, first, of public schools ' language barrier. Hispanic children raised in Spanish-speaking households were placed in English- speaking schools; consequently, these children were unable to adequately function and soon failed. In finding a solution, the program discussed bilin- gual education. Anita Ortiz, international business sophomore, said, " Bilingual education is to the advantage of American society because it allows Hispanics to interact with others. " Another problem discussed in the ed- ucational struggle was the cultural bias in the school curriculum. Examples were that history had no minority con- tribution and standardized tests were geared to the white majority. The so- lution found was there should be more minority sensitivity in the curriculum. " A greater sensitivity toward the his- tory of Latinos and other minorities is needed in order to make everyone feel inclusive in this society, " Co-chairman Orlando Garcia, liberal arts senior, said. The third concern was that in high school, many Latinos were channelled more toward vocational skills. There- fore, after graduation, Latinos imme- diately began low-paying jobs instead of entering college. If Latinos were en- couraged to take college preparatory classes, the educational struggle would diminish. The last factor addressed was the dwindling number of minority teachers in the country. In the year 2000, 33 percent of students would be Hispanics taught by a 95-percent white teacher force. " This has motivated me in trying to find a solution to all these problems, " Garcia said. " Hopefully, others will see the importance of trying to find an- swers and we can work toward a com- mon goal.

They selected speakers all the way from Texas bil- lionaire H. Ross Perot and actress Ceci- ly Tyson to the 1 990 gubernatorial can- didates. " One of our main objectives was to present a speakers series that appealed to more students and reflected the di- versity of society. That is what we are all about, bringing those unique people in the world that you do not see every day to the students at the University, " committee Chairperson Kerry O ' Brien, Plan II junior, said. The committee brought in such tal- ented speakers as Tyson and political activist Gladis Sibrian to provide a new outlook. " Who we bring has a lot of impact on how much the campus is ex- posed to, " Dennis Hranitzky, pre-med junior, said. Because of the University ' s proximity to the Capitol, the committee had no trouble getting the majority of the gu- bernatorial candidates " to spend an hour with us, " O ' Brien said. This 45- member committee not only wanted to bring a wide range of speakers to the campus but also wanted to have an im- pact on the students.

Even though the there was a lot of work involved in the committee, mem- bers felt it was all worthwhile.

" I feel we have a respon- sibility to the social conscious of the University of Texas, " Hranitzky said. Laura Camden 218 Distinguished Speakers Committee COMMITTEE PROMOTES STUDENT FILM WORKS Free movies! Free door prizes! The Texas Union Multi-Media Committee offered these opportunities to students on February 1 3 in the Val- entine Lover ' s Film Festival. Before seeing the movie " Somewhere in Time, " those who attended had the chance to win the door prize: dinner for two in Austin. " I think it ' s really wonderful that the committee organizes activities such as this. It ' s a good way to alleviate stress from studying, " Julie Hall, liberal arts sophomore, said. Another aspect of the Multi-Media Film Committee was their annual film and video competition held in the spring. On March 3, the committee sponsored the Third Coast Film and Video Competition. Entries came from film students studying across the nation in such places as New York, California, Michigan and Indiana. " I think the competition is extremely valuable because it encourages students to produce professional-level works, " committee chairperson Laura Haworth, radio-television-film junior, said. " It also gives them an opportunity to gain prestige and monetary recog- nition for their work, which encourages them to keep creating. " Six judges, three for each category, critiqued the work and picked the win- ners. Judges included big names such as Austin-based Warren Skaaren, who contributed on both the Beetlejuice and Batman screenplays in addition to as- sociate producing Top Gun. Curtis Kooris, owner of Texas Pacific Film, also served as a judge. " The screening of these films and videos exposes students to each other ' s works and ideas, and lets them know there are other people out there cre- ating and working toward the same goals, " Haworth said.

The committee ' s main goal was " to promote awareness and appreciation of art from different cultures, " said Chair- man Hsiu-Bun Hsu, psychology senior. Another important issue was drawing a diverse audience. " One show that turned out really well was the exhibit from the Department of Advertising. We also hope to attract a different crowd with the Science Fiction Sym- posium, " Hsu said. Composed of about 25 members, the committee was divided into four sub- committees: Gallery, Masterpiece Mat- inee, Art Awareness and Special Events. The gallery, located in the Union, displayed a variety of exhibits through- out the year. " We show a lot of student work, which is helpful because the art stu- dents don ' t have a place to exhibit their work. They only have one show a year in the Huntington Art Gallery with only one or two pieces of their work, " Deborah Dewees, art history senior and Gallery subcommittee chairperson, said.

In addition to gallery exhibits, the committee also organized perfor- mances by the UT Dance Team and the Concert Chorale, as well as wind en- sembles and poetry readings. " We try to expose people to art from a variety of mediums, " Hsu said. " We ' re not all art majors, " said Eliz- abeth Reding, Plan II senior.

" The committee was approached and asked to sponsor this program because of our interest in promoting interna- tional understanding on a cultural and international level, " program advisor Marguerite Elliot, said. The opening event kicked off the Austin Chapter of Children ' s Alliance for Protection of the Environment, Inc., with a press conference in the Sen- ate chambers at the State Capitol. " CAPE is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting environmental awareness, conservationism and envi- ronmental action projects for children worldwide, " Ingrid Kavanagh, founder of CAPE and Honorary Consul to Costa Rica, said. The second event took place at the Texas Union Theater. Ecotourism, de- forestation, reforestation, the . Green- house Effect and many other environ- mental issues were discussed in a forum which included such distinguished members as the president of the Costa Rica Chamber of Commerce and the Costa Rican Minister of Natural Re- sources. Panelists attemped to raise awareness of the environment in Costa Rica. The final program in the series, " Celebration for the Environment, " in- cluded a concert and children ' s perfor- mances with Joe McDermott, a local musician popular among Austin chil- dren. About 150 kids came and enjoyed the performances which also included sets by Costa Rican children. " It was interesting to see both the Costa Rican and American children getting along so well with each other despite their language barrier. Every- one had a good time, " Assistant Chair- woman Kimberly Chin, international business marketing junior, said.

Many students were familiar with the traditional programs the committee sponsored, such as the Halloween Haunted House and the 5K Classic Run, but the committee also introduced several new activities to enhance stu- dent-faculty sports interaction. In the fall, the committee sold tickets and sponsored a chartered bus trip to the Texas A M football game. " We had an especially good turnout seeing that it was at the end of our season, " Chairwoman Sharon Chris- tian, elementary secondary education senior, said. The popular " Lunch with the Coach " series, which usually attracted an audience of about 100, received an added twist when talks with the base- ball, volleyball and swimming coaches were introduced. In the spring, baseball fans received a special treat with the " Meet the Astros " program. Four Houston Astros players and three members of the staff ap- peared at the Union for video high- lights, a question and answer period and an autograph session. " A lot of the community came out and the crowd was really interested in the players, " Christian said. While working hard to maintain both old and new activities, the committee made time for their own recreation. " Our committee stresses fun. It ' s a good way to meet people because there is a lot of interaction. We often get together for various social events, " As- sistant Chairwoman Heather Way, jour- nalism government sophomore, said. " We ' re really not a sports-oriented group. I probably couldn ' t run the 5K Classic. Our goal is to be doing some- thing good for the campus, " Christian said. By holding popular programs and promoting new ones, the committee worked to appeal to everyone at UT, no matter what their athletic ability. Barbara Burch 222 Recreational Events Committee ANNUAL PARTY BEGINS SEMESTER WITH BANG On the West Mall, the towering fig- ures of Godzilla and King Kong glowered down on spectators enjoying live jazz. Inside the crowded Union, bands like Bad Mutha Goose vied with jugglers, mad physicists, popcorn ven- dors and maidens with Mardi Gras beads for the attention of more than 4,000 students. 1989 ' s " Monster " Fri- day Gras was on! The Texas Union Special Events Committee had a new name, but on Sept. 8 it carried on a UT tradition by sponsoring Friday Gras. The annual party, held in the Union, featured jug- glers, magicians, food and drink, a physics fair, Lazer Tag and live music of all kinds. Bad Mutha Goose had the ballroom jumping; a more sedate crowd gathered just outside the Union ' s West Mall entrance to listen to a jazz combo under the fierce gazes of huge Godzilla and King Kong balloons. " The bands are really the attraction for the older crowd, " Chairwoman Nicole Chaput, radio-television-film sophomore, said. She said that a lot of freshmen also attended the event. " It draws in a big crowd, and a crowd who comes to the Union from the be- ginning because it is mostly fresh- men and see the Union as an ex- citing place, " Chaput said. Friday Gras was just one of the ac- tivities sponsored by the committee. Other spirit-boosting events included Sittin ' with Bevo an opportunity for students to be photographed with Hook ' Em, the UT mascot and Spirit Boosters, which were flyers distributed to advertise pep rallies. Sponsoring so many activities took a lot of work, but members said their sense of satisfaction was worth the ef- fort. " It [Friday Gras] took all summer, but it was worth it; it turned out well, " Friday Gras Chair Kristy Albert, inte- rior design sophomore, said. " It ' s a really good experience for the people who are on the committee, " Chaput said. " The people who do this have as much fun as the people who go to it or more.

The committee helped educate stu- dents and expand their awareness of the homeless problem by sponsoring a sym- posium that offered information about service groups which provide food, shelter and clothing for the homeless in Austin. Representatives from groups such as Helping Our Brothers Out (HOBO) and the Salvation Army vol- unteered to speak at the symposium and coordinate action with service organ- izations from the University.

Community service group representatives interact- ed with students, giving their opinions and ideologies about the homeless problem in our community. " We try to present all sides of an issue fairly and thoroughly in order to allow students to have a complete knowledge of the issue, " Drew said. The story of a homeless UT student who donated blood in order to pay for his books prompted committee mem- bers to concentrate on the homeless issue. Although the symposium and the crossfires took a lot of time and effort, members said they felt that they were successful. " People seem more interested in the issues and not as close-minded after see- ing and hearing our symposiums and crossfires, " Beth Spears, business fresh- man, said. Stefanie Bauer 224 Student Issues Committee COUNCIL INVOLVES STUDENTS IN UNION - XM and ihe - ' and effort, Jttrcsw in the . -.,;. On a daily basis, most students saw the Union as a place to get something to eat or study between classes. Yet be- cause of the members of the Texas Un- ion Operations Council and the com- mittees they represented, Union programs affected students outside the building ' s stone walls. The council benefited students in several ways. " We help foster student involvement on campus, " Coordinator Kristin Anderson, international busi- ness finance junior, said. " The student committees function to give the student body a voice. " The Operations Council consisted of the chairperson from each of four com- mittees: Finance, Public Relations, Din- ing Services Marketing and Manage- ment. The staff advisor for each committee also served on the council. The Union Board of Directors heard presentations from the various commit- tees on everything from the annual traf- fic report to the use of the TUX card. The committees often presented the re- sults of their surveys and research to the Operations Council first to receive input and suggestions. During a time when racial issues were being heavily debated on campus, the council focused on a goal of multicul- turalism. " This is a student Union, " Public Relations Committee Chairman Mike Tooker, marketing public rela- tions junior, said. " We don ' t want it to be an elite crowd. " The co uncil attempted to recruit members for the committees through minority organizations on campus. " We try to encourage a diverse group, " Fi- nance Committee Chairman Stuart Nassos, finance marketing senior, said. Publicity of events also helped im- plement multiculturalism. The Public Relations Committee wrote stories about the cultural committees in their newsletter and promoted cultural events. Activities such as a Bowl-A-Thon among all the program and operation committees helped the members get to know each other. As it was designed to do, the Op- erations Council gave students an op- portunity to be involved in the oper- ations of the Texas Union.

To assist the Texas Union with its financial aspects, the Texas Un- ion Finance Committee worked vigor- ously to find a more efficient way for the Union to manage its money and benefit students at the same time. " Our main objective is to work to- gether with the Texas Union to analyze and investigate the different aspects of its finances, and hopefully we can find a solution to meet both the Union ' s and the students ' needs, " Chairman Stuart Nassos, finance senior, said. The committee was divided into sev- eral subcommittees, which were given independent research projects. The in- formation gathered in the subcommit- tees was compiled, written into a formal report and then recommendations were made to the Union through presenta- tions by committee members. " We have an advertising subcommit- tee, for example, that makes a survey asking students what attracts them to the Union. It is important for us to know why students partake in its serv- ices, " Kathe rine Hurst, history senior, said. The committee compared prices from the Austin community vendors, such as the University Co-op and Jester Store, to vendors at the Union who offered the same items and services. " Through this information we can help the Union attract students with the best available prices, " Nassos said. " In this way we feel we have benefited the Union and students. " Debra Buss 226 Finance Committee GOVERNOR PORTRAITS ADD FINISHING TOUCHES The Texas Governors Room had long been an important part of the Union, but members of the Man- agement Committee thought it needed something to merit its name. After a semester of hunting down facts, the committee unveiled their finished prod- uct at the dedication ceremony: por- traits of Texas governors who had an impact on the University. The idea for the ceremony sprang from a member who wondered why the room did not contain any portraits of those who inspired the name. " The hanging of the portraits is a long overdue fitting tribute to the gov- ernors, " Committee Chairman Robert Pierce, finance senior, said. The project was a deviation from the committee ' s usual tasks, which mainly included recording traffic through the Union. " The original intention of the room was to honor governors who had a re- lationship with the University, " Sherry Jensen, marketing junior, said. " Our purpose was to make sure that the stu- dents ' voice was expressed in the cer- emony, not the administration ' s. " The committee began the project by researching the governors and finding those who attended UT or had an in- fluence in the founding of the school. After obtaining the names of the cho- sen governors, the committee phoned their relatives to tell them that the stu- dents wanted to hang the portraits. " Students made all of the phone calls in order to personalize the message, " Jensen said. The committee had an artist design the portraits since they could not obtain existing ones. Governors honored at the ceremony included Oran M. Rob- erts, Pat M. Ness, Dan Moody, Buford H. Jester, Alan Shivers, John B. Con- nally and Dolph Briscoe. " The ceremony will bring a lot of recognition campus-wide to the Union and to the committee, " Pierce said. After the portraits had been hung, visitors to the Texas Governors Room were able to admire the new additions as well as appreciate those for whom the room was named.

And the Texas Union Public Re- lations Committee wanted to make sure that everyone did. " What we try to do is get people aware of the Union so that they will come in and find out what it has to offer, " Bryan Polk, accounting junior, said. The P.R. Committee tried reaching more people by generating two news- letters, The Union Exposed and The Eye. Also, every Wednesday afternoon, com- mittee members set up a West Mall ta- ble to promote Union activities by dis- tributing The Eye and answering questions. Union tours were provided to inform groups about its services and its history. Working on the committee produced satisfying results, not only to the group as a whole, but to individuals as well. " I ' m learning how to meet and com- municate with people from many dif- ferent backgrounds.

The closeness of the committee was an important part of how well it was able to achieve its goals. " We go to Mr. Gatti ' s for meetings, have picnics, have parties.... We ' re try- ing to be friends instead of just being committee members, " Cabral said. " We have a relatively small number of people, " Cissy Ramos, advertis- ing art senior, said. " But you can get a lot more excitement with a few people because everyone is doing something, everyone has a part to play. A big com- mittee tends to lose that. " While gaining valuable communica- tions experience, the members of the Public Relations Committee exposed the University to the the Union, show- ing students that the Union offered something for everyone.

Promoting the Union ' s food services and comparing them to com- petitors ' were the responsibilities of the Union Dining Services Marketing Committee. To help in their study of the Union ' s patrons, the committee initiated a phone poll of UT students. After re- ceiving phone listings of 490 students, members of the Dining Services Mar- keting Committee, along with several other Union committees, contacted the students to gather information. " Basically, we were polling them to get an idea of how many students went to the Union to use the dining services. Also, we wanted to know how they per- ceived the dining services, " Chairman Kelly Roach, Spanish junior, said. " We asked basic questions such as how they would rate the food or the price, " Kelly Leonard, marketing jun- ior, said. " We got a general consensus of who uses the Union and why. " After they contacted the students, the committee tallied the results and put together a report for the Union Operations Council and Board of Di- rectors. " Overall, the board thought it was significant information. At the same time, since it was the first time, there were things we could have controlled better, " Roach said. " One board member suggested poll- ing equal amounts of students, such as 50 freshmen, 50 sophomores, and so on, instead of doing random stratifi- cation, " she said. The committee looked at the phone poll as a learning experience. " Some of the results we got were really interesting, " Leonard said. " In the future, we ' ll probably use the phone poll to get more specific details, " Roach said. " This year was definitely a learning process. " Meredith Whitten UDS Marketing Committee 229 MAKING PATHS TO LEADERSHIP he Student Involve- ment Committee promoted interac- tion and leadership in the Austin com- munity with its career contacts and in- ternship committees. The Career Contacts Committee sponsored " Job Talks, " which were ca- reer information sessions. Committee members contacted University alumni working in the Austin area, asking them to talk about their jobs with students interested in their respective fields. Members recruited the alumni by sending letters asking them to partic- ipate. Professions from banking to law and government were represented. " The Student Involvement Commit- tee uses sources at the alumni center to help students out, " Executive Co- chairwoman Chris Schaulat, finance senior, said. The Internship Committee used the alumni center ' s governmental contacts to help students receive internships in Austin or Washington, D.C. " There ' s a tunnel of contacts from UT to Washington, " Schaulat said. The committee worked to develop a communication link between students and governmental officials. For exam- ple, the committee provided students with a book of the names of officials and departments that accepted interns. " SIC is not just a ' rah-rah ' group for campus athletics. We facilitate avenues for students to practice leadership skills, " Executive Co-chairwoman Michelle Anderson, marketing senior, said. SIC also was known for its other com- mittees, from the March 2 Committee to the Homecoming Committee. Involvement in SIC guaranteed stu- dents contacts and a look ahead for the future, while it promised them activities and good times for the present.

" " The purpose of the " Swing Out " was for organizations to pass their lead- ership from the old to the new, " Ad- visor Cheryl Wood said. The board invited all registered stu- dent organizations to attend the event, which was also known as the " Mass Pass. " The outgoing leaders of each organ- ization lined up parallel to their respec- tive new leaders as they prepared to hand over their leadership positions. " We asked them to bring something that symbolizes their leadership, " Wood said. " There were some very in- teresting things passed. " Immediately following the " Swing Out, " the festivities moved to the Flawn Academic Center, where awards were given to outstanding student organiza- tions. Awards were given in five cat- egories, plus an overall outstanding or- ganization award. Winners were chosen after an application and interview pro- cess. " We invited them to apply. Then the Leadership Board along with the Dean of Students Office eliminated some through paper cuts, " Kristin Parks, ad- vertising junior, said. " We interviewed the rest and chose the winners. " The passing of leadership from an organization ' s current officers to its fu- ture ones was not new. It had been done at the University in the past, but had stopped for several years. The board thought it was a good idea and revived kin 1989. Parks said turnout was high through- out the entire program, and estimated that 80 organizations participated in some part of the event. " All of the organizations were en- couraged to bring all of their members. Generally, it wasn ' t just two people from each organization, " she said. " Compared to last year, there were more people who applied for the awards ceremony, an d the applications were really thorough. " With the exception of the threaten- ing weather, the second recent " Swing Out " was a success. " Due to the weath- er it was cut kind of short, " Wood said. The board managed to get most of the outdoor part of the program fin- ished before the downpour hit. " We did get the pass done, " Wood said. " Actually, it was rather dramatic; just as we had the pass, there was a large clap of thunder. " Eventually the clouds made good on their threat, but the board was able to complete the program before everyone headed for the indoors. However, some ' ' , such as Parks, were not lucky enough to escape the rain. Parks ex- plained how she finished the event: " I gave out awards sopping wet.

This Student Association spon- sored program sought to teach the ba- sics of operating filming equipment as well as something about making good films. " It ' s going to be kind of like KTSB, where everyone wants to be a DJ, ex- cept everyone ' s going to be producing their own show, " Programming Direc- tor Paul Leonard, RTF senior, said. TSTV intended to give anyone a chance to become a star. Offensive pro- gramming, however, would be aired af- ter midnight. " Basically you censor nothing, " Charlie Eldred, government senior, said. " Anything they give you, you put on. " TSTV planned to give students an opportunity to express themselves be- fore a potential viewing audience of 120,000 Austin Cable recipients, as well as serve a useful purpose for classroom material that might not have been aired otherwise. Films from university production classes, other student projects, and stu- dent-made news programs were among the first choices to be considered for air-time. " Until we get the word out, it ' s hard for people to know what we ' re all about. We ' re sure that once we get going people will see the programs and want to give it a shot, " Eldred said. Those pursuing careers in film were excited to learn that a program could potentially be seen by 30 million viewers if it were picked up by the Na- tional Association of College Broadcast- ers ' satellite. The ACB also supplied TSTV with programing from other universities. " I think the station will offer students great experience, be- cause the programs might be seen all over the country.... That ' s great, " Lea WRITING ON THE WALL: Creative philos- ophy crayoned on the wall of SA President Jerry Haddican guides staff to self awareness. photo by Charles Walbridge Garey, RTF senior, said. Although many future stars had films ready to show, there were still many loose-ends to be tied before the station could actually begin running programs. Contracts had to be arranged with the city, and funding had to come from somewhere. TSTV requested that a budget be supplied by the city, and also applied for more than 25 grants from corporations such as Sony. Arranging an instruction class teach- ing students how to use the equipment was another bar that had to be cleared before TSTV could make its debut. Leonard assured that this class, besides 232 Students ' Association STUDENTS ' ASSOCIATION being within a student ' s typically nar- row economic range, was going to teach students more than how to push but- tons on a camera. " When you take thes.e classes, you ' ll start to realize that there are certain things that everybody does, certain framing techniques and unwritten rules. It ' s kind of like grammar in writ- ing, " Leonard said. " These are the kind of things we ' ll be teaching at TSTV - not only how to manually operate the equipment, but also how to make your films look good. " TSTV volunteers were expecting a huge response from not only the stu- dent body, but also from faculty mem- bers, and anyone else who had met the requirements. As far as publicity goes, the station operators felt the program- ming would promote itself. Leonard said, " The real strength of our channel is that we ' re located on campus. It ' s easy for us to get the word out to all these organizations. Think about it. Everybody has something to say.... I think it ' s going to be a flood.

" The surprising thing was that more people voted during this referendum than during the last student elections and run- off combined, " Haddican said.

" The gap between students and the administration is closing, but we ' re watching carefully that they implement these programs, " Haddican said.

But before planning their sched- ules, students were interested in know- ing the format of the classes they would be taking. With this in mind, the Cab- inet of College Councils issued the Of Course!. The Of Course! came out as a 58 page supplement to The Daily Texan, in time to register for classes for the next se- mester. Listed inside were the syllabi and teacher evaluations for courses from every college. The idea, which had been used in the past, had been revived by the cabinet and continued in both the fall and spring semesters. To help distribute information sheets and assemble the finished product, the cabinet recruited members of the col- lege councils, such as Erin Drury, el- ementary education junior. " We sent out information sheets to different departments who distributed them to faculty, " she said. " It (the syl- labi information) was completely based on the instructors. " Vice Chairman Joe Profaizer, Plan II senior, was quick to credit the college councils for their efforts. " The syllabi work couldn ' t get done without the in- dividual councils, " he said.

To alleviate the stress and answer the many questions students had, the Business Council sponsored an interview workshop each semester. " Our interview workshops are real successful, " President Jonathan Her- skovitz, marketing finance senior, said. " They had a real large turnout. " Each workshop touched on three as- pects of interviewing. Many students wanted to know what to wear to interviews. Although there were no iron-clad rules about what to wear, representatives from clothing stores gave students some ideas on what was appropriate to wear to make a good impression. " We have a segment called ' Dress for Success ' where people from a store like Frost Brothers or Dillard ' s or Foley ' s come and speak about what to wear and what not to wear, " Herskovitz said. In another part of the workshop stu- dents were able to ask questions of em- ployees of a company, such as an ac- counting firm, who came to give interviewing tips. They advised stu- dents on what to say and how to act during the interview. Some companies even provided examples. " Sometimes they act it (the interview) out and sometimes they do it on vid- eotape, " Vice President Sandy Chris- tenson, marketing junior, said. For the third segment of the work- shop, a representative from the College of Business Administration placement office explained how to use the office to interview for internships and careers. Students learned how to maximize the benefits that the placement office of- fered concerning such issues as resume writing and job hunting. The workshops, which were consis- tently successful, were not just for those about to graduate. " The workshops give you a good per- spective on interviewing. I ' ve been go- ing to them since I was a freshman. By the time you ' re a senior, you ' re old hand at it, " Christenson said. " The room is always packed, " she said. " I think it ' s one of the best pro- grams we put on. " Meredith Whitten FRONT ROW: Heather Diane Wittman, Sandra Jill Christenson.

Sponsored by the Communication Council, the week was highlighted by prominent professionals who gave stu- dents an inside look at the industry and also critiqued student works. Speech Day kicked off the week on Monday. A range of specialists gave dis- cussions on speech pathology and man- agement and development of training specialists. Speech day also brought key- note speaker Pamela Norcia, a famous Broadway performer.

Book critiques were offered where professionals reviewed student portfolios. Speakers emphasized how to get a job in the highly competitive cre- ative advertising area. The activities of Journalism Day, held on Wednesday, focused on the five se- quences of the department. Panels and discussions were held on several press- ing journalistic concerns such as ethics in media and minority issues. Radio Television Film Day on Thursday brought executives such as John Bendis, producer of MTV and Ha!TV, who addressed topics ranging from screenwriting to producing. " The week served as the voice of the communication students by showing the varieties of jobs available, " Alyson Kaufman, radio television film junior, said. " It also served to inform others of the different possibilites that the com- munications school offers. " The week ended on Friday with a college-wide barbecue. Entertainment was provided by local band Twang Twang Shock-a-Boom. One of the main events of Comm Week was the debate among represent- atives from the four departments over which was the best major. The debate waged for about an hour, with the pro- fessors finally deciding that all the ma- jors were terrific. " The ' Best Major in the College ' de- bate was interesting and informative. However, it only reinforced my desire for a speech degree, " Jay Slusky, speech junior, said.

This was evident during Education Week, which was organized by the council to address issues concerning ed- ucators. Other events scheduled were designed to give students advice and information on topics from classes to finding a job after graduation. The week started with a program on dropout awareness and prevention. " We talked about possible solutions and programs that might help alleviate the problem of dropouts and the issue of educational funding, " President Diana Alexander, physical education senior, said. The council also sponsored a dinner for the 10 outstanding high school teachers picked by the Ex-Students ' As- sociation. The next day, they held a luncheon in the teachers ' honor fol- lowed by a question and answer session. One goal the council strove to reach was " to promote relations between stu- dents and faculty, " Beverly Bakenhus, elementary education senior, said. To reach this goal, the council or- ganized a faculty staff appreciation luncheon. " The faculty have a lot of information to offer you just have to go out and ask for it, " Angie Hosek, elementary education junior, said. The council also provided informa- tion to students through panel discus- sions. During Education Week, a panel called " The Student Teaching Expe- rience " was organized. Students who had completed their student teaching were available to answer questions about what to expect. " The panel discussions work out real- ly well. We usually have a big turnout for things like that, " Hosek said. " The council tries to help education majors get a hold of where they ' re at, where they ' re going and what to expect.

To make it easier, however, the Liberal Arts Council held Career Day in hopes of bringing together business- es and potential employees. " We invite different corporations to set up tables in the Undergraduate Li- brary lobby. These businesses hand out all sorts of information about positions open within the companies, and also about internships available, " Raquel Leder, Plan II junior, said. " All students are welcome to attend because they can make important con- tacts, but juniors and seniors really ben- efit from the event, " Julie Monday, Plan II junior, said. Along with Career Day, the Liberal Arts Council supplied information about studying in foreign countries at the annual Study Abroad Fair, held in the fall and spring. The group showed its creative side with Analecta, a literary booklet com- posed of short stories and poetry. The magazine and t-shirts were sold around campus and proved to be successful money-making projects. " Not only do we use the money for the study abroad scholarships, but we elect a best teacher and award him or her with a scholarship, " Leder said. On a lighter side, the Liberal Arts Council came together every Friday for a happy hour, and they also participated in intramurals. But the main goal of the committee was to obtain a career cent- er. " The Business College has a career center, but we would really like to set one up for the College of Liberal Arts, " Leder said.

The Council sponsored various pro- grams throughout the week to promote environmental awareness among stu- dents as well as the community. The week included such activities as speak- ers who stressed the importance of re- cycling and the planting of trees by UT students and faculty. Earth Day was honored both nation- ally and locally. " After we found out about it (Earth Day), we took it upon ourselves to have Earth Week, " Clayton Nix, biochem- istry pre-law senior, said. The week came at a time when peo- ple across the nation were becoming more conscious of pressing issues such as ozone layer destruction, hazardous waste disposal and global warming. Uni- versity efforts to clean up the environ- ment included putting recycling bins out around campus. Although it had been 20 years since the first Earth Day, the Council planned to continue to promote awareness in the years to come. " Over the years, as environmental is- sues come to head in Austin, we ' d have specified events to address them, " Earth Week Chairwoman Candace Chandra, biology pre-med junior, said. Chandra initiated the idea of Earth Week. Several projects and organizations evolved out of the Council ' s Earth Week committee, including work on a proposal to the state legislature to im- prove recycling efforts on university campuses. " The proposal to the state legislature would recommend that universities would have to recycle and also use re- cycled products, " Chandra said. " We feel that it ' s time that the Uni- versity has a comprehensive recycling program, " Nix said. " Action is not so much talking about it, but physically doing something. " With their improved knowledge of environmental issues, students were en- couraged to do their part in working to save the earth, and the Natural Sciences Council aimed to help them achieve that goal.

These fire- side chats, sponsored by the Pharmacy Council, provided an open atmosphere for students to discuss issues affecting the pharmaceutical industry, as well as get to know their professors outside of the classroom. " It really brings the professors down to real life, " Vice President Melinda Savage, pharmacy senior, said. The informal setting allowed stu- dents and faculty to develop relation- ships beyond that of an instructor and student. " I was able to get to know the faculty much better. I became friends with the professors, " President Shan- non Roberts, pharmacy senior, said. Students who attended these fireside chats for the first time were surprised by the opportunity to learn about their professors on a more personal level. While the Council worked to benefit pharmacy students, they also provided events for the entire University. Phar- macy Week presented all students with health awareness programs such as stress testing, cholesterol screening and sunburn awareness while giving those in the College of Pharmacy informative programs about career opportunities and future trends. Despite all of their work, the Council made time for fun as well. The Golden Castles Pharmacy Follies and Awards Presentation mixed a night of awards with one of fun and laughs as pharmacy students provided the audience with skits and performances. The Council covered all bases by pro- viding students informative events such as Pharmacy Week, prestigious events such as the night of awards and follies, and relaxing events such as the fireside chats. Nancy Shen PHARMACY COUNCIL 242 Pharmacy Council HALLOWEEN FAIR BENEFITS KIDS Pelping the stu- dent body ac- quire a better understanding of the profession of so- cial work was the Social Work Council ' s primary objective. With that in mind, the council sponsored events which en- hanced the community as well as the School of Social Work, enabling the council to experience real-life situa- tions. Children of dysfunctional families gathered in Littlefield Dormitory on Halloween for the council ' s Halloween Fair to enjoy games, ghouls and trick- or-treats. The Halloween Fair was the biggest event of the council ' s year, according to Olivia Miaz, social work senior and president of the council. Not only were the children invited to enjoy the free festivities, but their fami- TY . . :he fireside SOCIAL WORK COUNCIL lies also attended and participated. " I thought it was really good for the council members who worked the fair because families came in a unit, " Shawn Malarcher, social work junior, said. " We usually don ' t see them like that. " Poor weather forced the event to be moved from the Texas Union patio to Littlefield. " It actually worked out better be- cause we were planning on taking the children trick-or-treating at the dorm and would have had to worry about keeping the whole group of them to- gether, " Malarcher said. The council asked agencies that work with dysfunctional families, such as the Center for Battered Women and the Salvation Army, to organize the par- ticipants. Several Austin merchants such as McDonald ' s and Domino ' s con- tributed to the event by donating food and prizes. The council provided Lit- tlefield residents with the candy given to the children as they trick-or-treated. Meanwhile, downstairs in the dorm basement, those who were not trick-or- treating were enjoying a cake walk, face painting and other games. In addition to making the children happy, the Hal- loween Fair also touched the council members. " Seeing kids who don ' t get much at all is just a little thing that makes it worth it, just brightening their day, " Robyn Wertheimer, social work soph- omore, said.

" The basic idea behind the Student Engineering Council is to interface be- tween the students and administra- tion, " President Michelle Miller, aero- space engineering senior, said. " We present the problems the students are having to the administration and relay the answers back to the students. " One way the council worked to ben- efit students was their proposal to build a student activity center.

" The Student Engineering Council lobbied for the center and it looks like it is going to happen about five years down the road, " Vice President Jeff Baumgarten, electrical engineering senior, said. Through The Vector, the college ' s newsletter, the council accomplished its goal of strengthening ties within the college while opening channels of com- munication with other colleges. " This year The Vector covered 75 percent en- gineering events and left the other 25 percent to other college happenings, " editor-in-chief Chang said. " Other college majors are beginning to appreciate that coverage and we hope to integrate more in the future, " Miller said. Laura Camden STUDENT ENGINEERING COUNCIL 244 Student Engineering Council WORKING TOWARD UNIFICATION he Student Fine Arts Council, which was established in 1988, spent 1989-90 making itself known to fine arts students, as well as unifying the different departments in the col- lege. " The Council is formed mainly to " KJlff] unify the departments in the College of Fine Arts, " Jenny Nolan, drama edu- cation senior, said. " It ' s such a small college; if we don ' t unify in some way, then our voice doesn ' t get heard, " Nolan said. The council served as a liaison be- tween the faculty and students. When students had a problem or complaint, they could submit it to the council, which would in turn take it to the dean ' s office. However, only a few complaints were received because of the newness of the council. " I think that because we ' re a new council, hardly anyone knows that we ' re around. What we ' re doing now is making a name for ourselves so that students will be more likely to submit complaints, " Anne Davis, art junior, said. The council helped to make itself known by sponsoring the Texas Excel- lence in Teaching Award. One faculty member in the college received the $1,000 award, which was new to the college because the council only recently established it. In the fall, the council held a contest to decide on a new T-shirt for the col- lege. " (The T-shirt contest) was one of the ways to reach the students, to let them know that we ' re here, " Davis said. Not only did the contest allow art students to display their talents, but it also gave the council a way to increase its visibility in the college.

Bonnell. Favorite city hangouts like Sholtz ' s Beer Garden, Chuy ' s, Kirbey Lane Cafe and Katz ' s. Each of these places provided something unique for UT student groups. Both the Texas Equestrian Team and the Longhorn Jumping Club held their trail rides at Medway Ranch. Located near Lake Travis, the ranch was known for its wide open spaces and for the beauty of its landscapes. Other groups liked to hang out around the water. The UT Sailing Club sailed on Lake Travis, frequenting the Sea Island Inn. The Texas Angels made sure they stopped in often at the Lakeview Cafe on Lake Austin. Some enjoyed Austin ' s natural beauty at Mt. Bonnell or Lake Travis. Others took in the city sights attending happy hour at El Torrito ' s, hanging out at Uzi ' s or Uncle Nasty ' s. But in every case, UT organizations took advantage of all that Austin had to offer. edited by Tanisa LaSaun Jeffers 246 Special Interests UT Aerobics had students UT Aerobics Toned bodies were a sign of the times, and UT Aerobics helped stu- dents nearly 500 of them each se- mester dance their way toward that goal. " As a Rec Sports club, we serve more students than any other UT club on campus, " President Kim Looney, Plan II senior, said. Although more than 500 students signed up, the instructors set a closing capacity of 450-500 students to ensure proper teaching conditions as well as safety. " It ' s hard to turn people away, " Looney said. " After all, it ' s their club. But if one girl gets hurt, that ' s one too many. " Having too many students in a class can stretch the instructor ' s capac- ity to monitor the room, she said. Looney attributed the club ' s popu- larity to a variety of factors. Not only did UT Aerobics have certified, expe- rienced instructors and low fees ($15 per semester to attend classes offered twice daily), but attending classes be- came " a social thing to do, " Looney said. " Lots of sorority girls come to- gether, or sometimes a whole dorm floor. " In addition to an incr ease in appeal, the club also recorded a growing num- ber of male students in its classes, Loon- ey said. In fact, the club ' s first male instructor started teaching in the fall. Being the only male instructor is " kind of interesting, " said instructor David Sexton, theater senior. Sexton became interested in aerobics after tak- ing classes with the club. He auditioned to become an instructor after a year and then went through instructor training. " I think I offer a different kind of class, concentrating more on muscle devel- opment, " he said. Along with the club ' s increase in pop- ularity came a need for a higher level of professionalism, Looney said. " I shaped UT Aerobics into something more than just a group of people getting together to do aerobic dance, " she said, citing the club ' s new constitution as an ex- ample of her efforts. The constitution provides for a " committee of members " to serve as a liaison between the students and in- structors, and also gives a statement of the purpose and goals of UT Aerobics as a sports club. " Our ultimate goal, " Looney said, " is to provide the safest, healthiest, and most exciting exercise we can to the largest amount of students. " Emily C.

They knew they were in for a treat, whether it was bingo, finger painting or just plain ' ole conversation. " Leaders in service " was an accurate description of Bellwether, a group of women whose main emphasis lay in serving the Austin community through projects for the elderly and children. " The elderly and children are the two groups in society that have the most to give, yet they are the ones most ne- glected, " Lindy Lacoume, English junior said. .-... Hj ' The group visited nursing homes every month, talking and playing bingo with the residents. The women also par- ticipated in Project Reach Out, an ac- tivity geared toward serving the elderly and handicapped, and they took part in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowling Tournament. Bellwether members spent much of their time with the children at Brack- enridge Hospital. The women provided candy, played games and decorated the children ' s rooms according to the hol- iday season. " Bellwether is a great way to get in- volved at UT and a good way to serve the community at the same time. It is also special in the way each member is important to the whole of the organ- ization, " Beverly Kottle, marketing jun- ior, said. Although the group was small in number, they felt the size allowed them to be more personal and dedicated in leadership, friendship, scholarship and service qualities emphasized for membership. Lacoume said she hoped that the group would continue to grow. " I ' d like to see a new spark come into it. . .with people joining who are really dedicated to serving other people. " Cheronda M.

Alpha Phi Omega. These were just a few of the organ- izations which APO helped. Each semester APO organized a week-long campus blood drive. Mem- bers set up and coordinated the drive, working with donors and in the can- teen. Sheila Hundley, biology junior and co-coordinator of the fall blood drive, said that donors volunteered rather than being paid, although they did re- ceive a t-shirt. APO collected 1,983 pints in the fall, a figure much higher than for the pre- vious blood drive. The blood was used all over Texas, with some going to the Hemophilia Foundation in Dallas and some going to Austin hospitals. APO received a certain number of credits, each standing for units of blood, after the drive. Annetta Morris, history senior and co-coordinator of the drive, said that these units could be used by people approved by APO. By using an APO credit, a person could save about $150, the average price for a pint of blood. In addition to sponsoring the blood drive, the group sponsored other ser- vice activities. A group of APO pledges visited Brackenridge Children ' s Hospi- tal last fall and put on a play about pilgrims and Charlie Brown characters for the sick children. Each semester ' s APO pledges had to complete 35 hours of volunteer work, and each pledge class had to come up with its own major project. David Per- ez, international business liberal arts senior, came up with the Brackenridge idea and coordinated the project. " APO is willing to help anybody.

Final- ly, the group sponsored APO ' s regional convention the largest in the group ' s history, with 516 people attending. The convention ' s theme was " Service Southern Style: Calling All to Serve. " Michael Magnia, government senior, best summed up the attitude behind APO when he said, " The one thing APO has unique about it is that every- one who joins tends to be more con- cerned with serving others, and it makes for a unique type of brother- hood.

On the UT campus, students recognized this mis- taken opinion adopted by some. Yet there was a handful of individuals who not only denied these charges, but also proved to others what spirit and hos- pitality Longhorns had to offer. Beta Upsilon Chi, a Christian frater- nity, hosted a fellowship for their broth- er Texas Christian University Beta chapter after the football game on Nov. 18. Also invited to the gathering were UT alumni of the fraternity. Members overcame the chilly, wet weather with exuberant dance music and sang the rainy night away with their own ren- ditions of popular TV-show theme songs. The " Rendevouz with TCU " concluded with a formal introduction of all TCU and UT members. " The night was planned in order to spread excitement through all the chap- ters and make the fraternity stronger as a whole, " Matt Turner, economics jun- ior, said. Members unanimously voted the " Rendevouz with TCU " a success. Turner said that friendships between the chapters were immediate simply be- cause of their common denominator: the serving of Jesus Christ. " The fel- lowship made us see that we don ' t live in a vacuum. There are other guys who feel as we do about Christ, " Scott Ertl, aerospace engineering junior, said. President David Cox, electrical engi- neering senior, agreed that underlying trust and friendship were the evening ' s key factors.

We ' re here for fun and fellowship, representing Christ in all we do. Christians aren ' t geeks; the things we share among ourselves go a lot deeper than most would suspect.

Members of the Bevo ' s Babes recognized this fact. Though their efforts went largely unnoticed by the University, their job was a crucial one. " Our main funtion is that of being backup timers for the swim team, " Candace Blake, advertising senior, said. " You just never know when the elec- tronic timers will go out. " The Babes were the official spirit or- ganization of both the men ' s and wom- en ' s swim teams. They supported the teams, decorated the swimmers ' lockers and provided spirit baskets for them. " The swim team doesn ' t get as much support as football or basketball, even though they are national champions. I personally love the sport and I ' m really glad that there ' s an organization here at the University that supports them, " Lisa Bowen, natural sciences sopho- more, said. The Babes also promoted friendship between the teams and the girls. Sec- ond-year members chose freshman re- cruits as their little brothers, making sure the recruits had someone they could depend on to help them make the transition to college life and intercol- legiate sports. " We take our little brothers to din- ner, decorate the doors of their dorm rooms, give them a lift if they need it and generally just be there for them if they need us, " Blake said. Social events greatly increased the two groups ' compatibility. " One of our goals at the beginning of the year is to get to know all the guys, so we plan a lot of activities for them throughout the season, " Blake said. " Babes is a great organization be- cause we give girls that are not involved in much an opportunity to become in- volved in a spirit organization. The teams depend on us, " Blake said.

The Canterbury Student Association, a na- tionwide student organization of the Episcopal church, brought that kind of excitement once a month to a group of mentally retarded men at the Travis State School. The project involved going to the school for parties, singing to the res- idents while cookies and punch were served. The residents often got in- volved in the event by singing and danc- ing along with members, even request- ing their favorite songs. Visiting the school was a commitment for the group, according to Dale Crock- ett, physics graduate student. " Some people go out to visit them during Christmas, but we do it once a month, " he said. The service project began 20 years ago and had become a tradition to the association. They had even received a plaque from Governor Bill Clements honoring their service. Crockett said, " At first it ' s a little intimidating and the students keep close to one another, but you see a progression to where we all begin shaking hands and hugging. Now when I go, it ' s a real joy because I know they really enjoy it. " The residents at the school always gave a warm welcome to the students, with one man " kissing all the women ' s hands, " Gardlund said. The group also participated in other service projects, such as visiting the Austin Manor Nursing Home and St. George ' s Court Retirement Home. " The organization is generally split be- tween worship, social activities, and ser- vice, " said Crockett. Members said the service tradition, especially the visits to the Travis State School, was so strong that they even- tually got to know the residents per- sonally. " You miss the ones you don ' t see, " Crockett said. He said the point of the project was to " bring some of the outside world to these guys, and to give some lively spirit to break up the mo- notony of the day to day.

Posters, videos, crafts and other exhibits showcasing Caribbean islands like Haiti, Jamaica, Grenada and the Bahamas were on display in the UGL lobby as part of the group ' s sec- ond annual Caribbean Week, Nov. 13- 17. Members said they wanted the ex- hibit and the week to increase campus and community awareness of the Ca- ribbean region ' s more than 1,000 is- lands. Exhibit chairman Claudia Liautaud, a photojournalism advertising sopho- more from Haiti, said that even she learned a lot. " I ' ve only visited the Dominican Re- public and Puerto Rico, islands next to mine. They were the only two I knew about, " she said. Besides educating, the group wanted to " encourage people to visit the is- lands, and to invest in the Caribbean, " said President Rohan Small, a computer science accounting senior from the Cayman Islands. A panel discussion featuring educa- tors from the Caribbean and the Uni- versity was also held during the week. The topic was the future of the region. Caribbean panel members were " urging us with the opportunity to be here to go back with our educations, our new ideas, and transmit our knowl- edge to improve our homeland, " Liautaud said. The group also sponsored a fundrais- ing party at Club Islas to benefit Ca- ribbean victims of Hurricane Hugo. The party was so successful that they had to stop letting people in. Formed in January 1987, the group had 45 members. Membership in- creased 50 percent in 1989 alone. To build " togetherness, " the group began scheduling weekly activities, Small said. They also participated in intramural sports for the first time. As 1989 indicated, the club expected more members and more successes in the years to come.

Most prob- ably never gave it a second thought, but to James Conine, accounting finance senior, it provided the perfect project while he served on Circle K Interna- tional ' s service committee. " The highway cleanup idea was sort of my baby, " Conine said. " I just con- tacted the Highway Department and they put us on a list. " The organization was assigned a two- mile strip of a rural farm road off of Highway 290. Once a month, several members would wake up early on Sat- urday morning to go clean the strip. " We had doughnuts and juice to wake everyone up, " Julie Kellogg, elemen- tary education junior, said, " and then we carpooled out there. " The members would split up, pass out bags, and walk down each side of the highway picking up trash. " We wore orange vests, but the highway isn ' t ever busy, so there ' s no danger, " Laurie Bartos, accounting senior, said. " When we go with a big group, it ' s a lot of fun. I think there ' s a positive attitude about it, " Bartos said. The first time members went out to clean was in July of 1988. " In the sum- mer, it was really hot and the road was really dirty, but there was less trash in the winter, " Bartos said. When finished, the members would go back and collect all of the bags of trash and leave them by the sign to be picked up by city employees. Conine said, " It can be grimy picking up the trash, but also kind of fun. " One interesting thing they found was a laminated postcard attached to a bal- loon. " A boy had sent it from Round Rock to see how far it would go, so we sent it back to him, " Conine said. Although picking up trash was not the most ideal way of spending their Saturday mornings, Bartos said it was a good way to " get some publicity while we did something for the city.

Sixth St. - home of Mexican breakfasts and future leaders of America? Maybe not, but on Thursday mornings at 7 o ' clock, it was the breakfast meeting place for the Longhorn leaders and others who made up Cisco ' s Kids. Far from being a " normal " club in any sense of the word, Cisco ' s Kids com- bined the tradition of morning meet- ings with the originality of different themes for each week. Themes includ- ed Stereotype A Major, Dress As Your Favorite UT Administrator and Fa- mous Couples. Michael Appleman had the presti- gious honor of leading this elite group of students. " It is a great honor and I am grateful to my subjects for placing me in such a lofty position, " Appleman, Plan II senior and Cisco ' s King, said. Cisco ' s Kids was organized in 1975 for student leaders to get together and chat about life (or anything else that happened to pop up) without the pres- sures of " normal " clubs. When asked about how the themes for each meeting came about, Appleman said, " Probably to liven things up because it was just a social gathering. " Since its beginning, membership was open to any Longhorn, not just campus leaders. " It ' s a great chance to rub el- bows with student leaders and meet a lot of fun-loving Longhorns, " Cyndi Brucks, nursing senior, said. The owner of Cisco ' s Bakery, Rudy Cisneros, obviously enjoyed the meet- ings. He said, " They ' re wonderful kids and they have a lot of fun!

The 85-member club boasted a wide range of ability and interest levels. " We don ' t have tryouts. Anyone can join. We have some touring rides for people who aren ' t interested in competition. We also have lower categories for mem- bers to try out collegiate racing, " Pres- ident Joel Rierson, economics junior, said. During 1989, the club participated in collegiate events as a member of the South Central Collegiate Cycling Con- ference and also in U.S. Cycling Fed- eration events. All interested members were eligible for the collegiate races, which were divided into men ' s A, B, and C levels and women ' s categories. Though most of the members rode in the intermediate B level, and nine par- ticipated in the top-level A category, the club drew many beginners. " Most of the students who join are interested specifically in racing, " Team Captain Jeffrey Evans, psychology sen- ior, said. The club also improved members ' techniques. " We show members how to train, race and do some bike mainte- nance. Also, we teach them how to ride in a pace line, and show lots of tech- niques which can be really scientific de- pending on the level, " Rierson said. Each year the club promoted a spe- cific race. In 1990, the club hosted the University of Texas Team Time Trials. Four-person teams from colleges in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma raced together in single file, allowing each member to take turns in front. " It ' s an Olympic event, so we felt it necessary to include it in our collegiate races, " Evans said. " It ' s a very technical formation and it takes lots of practice. " Apparently, practice paid off for the cyclists, who were No. 1 as a team in the SCCC Conference. Cristy Corbino The s avi campus narked l nceforthcl 1970s as " 1 Dancing.

Men and women regularly practiced jazz, modern dance, ballet and Salsa to en- tertain volunteer groups as well as on- campus groups. The spring semester marked the beginning of intense prac- tice for the UT Dance Team ' s annual spring show. The dance team originated in the 1970s as " Latin Competitive Ballroom Dancing. " After winning a national competition and placing second in an international one, members became in- creasingly interested in gearing the club more towards jazz dancing. Members volunteered to dance at charity organ- izations such as nursing homes, where their talents were greatly appreciated. Kari Patterson, child development senior, said the spring show marked the culmination of a year of hard work. " Everthing comes together, " Patterson said. " That includes everything from choreographing and evaluating the dances to selling tickets and sewing cos- tumes. This is the point of making or breaking relationships, as the dance members spend more and more late nights together. It ' s very stressful, but worth it, " Patterson added. The show involved extensive prep- aration time, and the team spent ap- proximately 15 minutes warming up for the performance. In a typical practice, a tune was switched on and the team learned to " pose, " " roll, " " do the limbo step " and " flop their arms like Raggedy Ann " to Prince ' s " Trust " . The style of dance was " funky jazz, and really upbeat, " said Holly Lormand, physical therapy junior. Yet more than just learning the moves, these dancers learned the im- portance of sharing their talent for the enjoyment of themselves and others.

The group, more popularly known as the Gourdheads, was formed in 1984 by three unique percussionists who wanted to form a unique organization. To become a Gourdhead, applicants had to be a member of Longhorn Band and be pop- ularly recognized as an " individual. " " We don ' t care whether they drink, are tall or short or dumb or smart, we look for people who are committed to their individualism and believe in them- selves, " Kent Johnson, marketing sen- ior, said. The group strove for a mix- ture of individuals. Once initiated, members carried on many traditions in the spirit of indi- viduality. One such tradition was the annual Kamikaze Races where mem- bers formed two-man tag teams and took turns drinking shots every five minutes. The last team standing won. Two other traditional parties were Gourd-O-Rama, which was the annual jam thrown after Band-O-Ram a, and the Fiesta Del Gourdo party, which oc- curred after the band marched in the Fiesta celebration held in San Antonio. Everyone, band members included, attended Gourdhead parties. Trina Tail, prebusiness sophomore, said " We try to have good old fashioned small parties, but everybody shows up. " Members built a float depicting the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas for Round-Up. President Carl Schwenker, mechanical engineering senior, said, " It ' s going to be in the shape of a bed and we ' re going to put a bunch of drum sets on top pf it. " Contrary to popular belief, these cra- zy individuals weren ' t your typical sax- crazed, hung over horn hooters. " We have one alumni who is in, Harvard medical school and one who is a Wall Street stock broker. Assistant director Paula Crider was also a Gourdhead, " Schwenker said. So underneath the parties, the Gourdheads represented individuals who marched out of the conformity line and stood together. Amy Schlegel 260 Delta Gamma F.la OH, YEAH?

Dur- ing good weather the stands would quickly fill up with die-hard Longhorns, avid baseball fans and the Disch-Falk Diamonds. The Diamonds were founded in 1988 by a group of Student Involvement Committee members interested in base- ball. " I thought that there should be a support group for the baseball team, since there are support groups for the football and basketball teams. The team knows we ' re here for them, " Co- Founder and President Jennifer Stroud, science education senior, said. The Diamonds made scrapbooks and prepared care packages for the players, and most importantly they rooted for the Longhorns at home games. To become a Diamond, applicants had to go through a rigorous appli- cation process. " It ' s reassuring because you know the Diamonds are serious and not a bunch of ditzy girls, " Ginger Haswell, psychol- ogy sophomore, said. The Disch-Falk Diamonds contribut- ed to Austin as well. Through welcom- ing the recruits and escorting them and their families around campus, the girls helped the Longhorns recruit the best players around. Many UT players have gone on to the major leagues. So the next time you go out to the ballpark, whether to watch the game, get a tan or both, be sure to notice those girls with the twinkle of diamonds in their eyes. But don ' t be fooled they may know more about baseball than even the most avid fan!

Through the Texas Excellence Teaching Awards, professors, who were nominated by student councils, were publicly recognized for their ef- fective teaching and positive influence on their students. The $1,000 award was provided annually for one teacher in each of the 14 schools and colleges. In 1989, the Ex-Students ' Association included an award presented to grad- uate instructors. " The award is given to one graduate instructor from each college to enhance teaching of undergraduate students, " Amy Mettlen, organizational commu- nications graduate student, said. The association planned to extend the award annually. " Right now, there is no cash along with the award, but perhaps in the future they will get the funds for it, " Mettlen said. Established in 1885, the association served UT through its many student- based committees, including the Pres- ident ' s Leadership Board. They over- saw the UT Sweetheart election, Homecoming and the March 2 Texas Independence celebration. The organ- ization was also one of the sponsors of Round-Up and awarded more than 300 scholarships to students every year. The association welcomed students interested in becoming members. Ben- efits of being a member included early priority for football tickets, guaranteed hotel reservations for Longhorn foot- ball games and discounts on quality Longhorn paraphernalia. As of April 1990, the alumni association had the most members of any college in Texas. The work and dedication of the group built a strong alumni association, reaped many rewards, and in the pro- cess recognized many outstanding fac- ulty members and students.

There wasn ' t much wind, and there were hardly any clouds. In short, it was a perfect day for flying. In the spring of 1989, the University Flying Club sponsored its annual " Flight Around Austin " for charity. The Handicapped Equestrian Learning Program benefited from the $100 raised during the one-day event. " It was a lot of fun for us, " Sara Caldwell, English junior, said. " A lot of kids from the equestrian program came out and it seemed like everybody had a camera. " Francis Larson, chemistry graduate student, agreed. " We had a good turn- out. . . A camaraderie developed, and we moved toward becoming a cohesive group. The only drawback was that we ended up not reaching our fundraising goal of $500, " he said. The group of 23 actives had a flight instructor in its midst, and two more expected to achieve this position by fall 1990. Because the club had its own 1 flight instructor, lessons were offered at a good rate. " UT students have the opportunity to learn to fly much more cheaply than anywhere else, short of signing up for the military, anyway, " Larson said. The club cut the price of a pilot ' s license in half for its members through discounts in training and plane-usage costs. They group also recently bought a Cessna 150 two-seater training plane. With its new plane and dedicated members, the University Flying Club gave Longhorns the wings to fly.

One would have thought that this would be true for international stu- dents who were studying at UT, thou- sands of miles away from home. But this was not always the case. In 1989, a few members of the Iranian student community decided to end their isolation. They began by de- emphasizing the political and religious ideologies of their country and concen- trated instead on sharing their home- land ' s culture and heritage with other students. Iranian Students ' Academic and Cul- tural Organization members felt that through the organization Iranian stu- dents could unite to bring about needed changes. President Shahnam Zand- Biglari, pharmacy senior, said, " The events that happened in Iran were re- flected in the old Iranian students ' group. This segregated the members from one another and from the com- munity. " " The activities in Iran were being used by the media to give a stereotype of Iranian students. They made them out to be extremists, radicals. We be- lieve that we ' ve changed that stereo- type, " Biglari said. Members expressed this need to break the stereotype through their in- volvement in various university activ- ities. An example was the establishment of the Omar Khayyam Scholarship. Others included their participation in Texas Union events such as " A Night in the Middle East. " Finally, the group ' s commitment to this new style of thinking was empha- sized by the establishment of a con- stitution that specifically stated, " This is a student organization, non-profit, in- dependent from any specific political and religious beliefs, with emphasis on academic and cultural orientation of students of the University of Texas at Austin. " " Many didn ' t feel that we could han- die this big of a mission, but we proved that we could have non-political re- ligious activities, the support grew from all sides, " Vice President Vahid Mojtabavi-Naini, pharmacy senior, said. As a result, ISACO opened them- selves and became active, participating members of student life while preserv- ing the traditions and customs of their native land. ' .

" It gives people a place on campus to go where they know people and can do something they enjoy. It is like a home away from home, " R. Scott Murphy, marketing senior, said. The team traveled to different cities, including St. Louis, Denver and Las Ve- gas, for tournaments. These tourna- ments not only gave the team an op- portunity to perfect their skills and develop relationships with their team- mates, but also gave players a chance to see parts of the country normally out of reach. " I have seen more of Texas with the bowling team than in all the years I have lived here, " Jessica Jones, mar- keting junior, said. In 1989, the bowling team doubled its membership, growing from 30 peo- ple in the 1988-89 season to more than 65. This increase allowed the team to travel more. In addition to serving as a social or- ganization, the team was educational. Some members served as instructors for kinesiology graduate students, while others taught bowling in the informal class program. However, what made the group ex- ceptional for its members was the chance to see a little more of Texas, perfect their bowling skills and make new friends.

However, " unified " was the exact word that Longhorn Band President Kevin Brown, continuing student in educa- tion, used to describe the various mem- bers of the band. Being one of the larger organizatons on such a huge campus, the band had members from many different back- grounds. Students came from out of state, from small towns, and one stu- dent even came from Europe. Yet Brown said these unique students worked hard to form a close-knit group, with the majority of members having most of their friends in the band. " Where you come from makes ab- solutely no difference, " Bob Dunbar, history senior, said. " The band makes a strong effort to include everyone. " When the new students arrived in the fall, " at first, they were a little lost, but we get them well-aquainted with the freshman week, " Brown said. Dunbar said, " Older members make a conscious effort to involve the new students. " Everybody was involved in activities such as scavenger hunts and road rallies in order to meet each other. The band was divided into different sections of instruments, which also aided in helping the new members meet people. " The different groups serve as a launching pad to become more familiar with the rest of the groups, " Dunbar said. The sections threw parties over the course of the year, and also engaged in friendly competitions between one another. Besides the informal gatherings, the band held several formal parties, be- ginning with a picnic during freshman week and ending with a huge banquet in the spring. The band also had " big person " activities, where a new member was matched up with an older member as their big brother or sister. The playing and marching styles of most of the students were fairly con- sistent with those of the Longhorn Band, because " many Texas high schools copy our band, " Brown said. He also said it might have taken the new members a while to adjust, but summer clinics were held to introduce them to the Longhorn Band ' s " snappy style " of marching. The band not only varied in people ' s origins, but also academically. " We rep- resent every school at UT, and nearly every major, " Brown said. Only 1 1 per- cent of the band were music majors. Dunbar said, " I think that ' s a strength. Those people don ' t do what I do all day. " " The band requires lots of student involvement, averaging about 34 hours a week, " Brown said. Yet with all they had to learn, they had to be efficient and hold intense practices. However, after these practices, many members got together for awhile. Spending so much time together de- veloped many friendships and a definite unity among members. Even though Brown was involved in several other organizations, he said that of all of them, the band was the " best by far. " J.

These were a few of the words that came to mind when most people thought of the Showband of the South- west. But football games weren ' t the only events the band played at. During the spring, the band ' s 340 members split into three concert bands, two jazz bands and a brass choir. Each separate band provided mem- bers the opportunity to play different types of music and, in most cases, take a break from the hectic fall schedule. " I wanted to be in the brass choir because you get more chances to play, since there aren ' t any woodwinds. It ' s better for developing your skills, " Kent Kostka, history senior, said. " Rehearsing four hours a week and per- forming two or three times a semester is a welcome change of pace from the 20 hours a week I spent as trumpets section leader in the fall. " Band members had to play in these ensembles during the spring to be able to play in the marching band in the fall. In the spring the concert bands played in the Mardi Gras festivities held in Galveston as well as for UT bas- ketball games. " Because we play in a variety of events during the spring, mu- sic tends to be more technical and dif- ficult, " Brown said. The jazz bands were composed of trumpet, trombone, saxophone and drum instruments. Band members au- ditioned for the jazz bands at the start of the spring semester. " The more technical players get a spot in the top band, " Alex Trevino, fine arts fresh- man, said. In addition to a host of other ac- tivities, the six bands put on Bandorama. Bandorama showcased players ' talents and allowed members to put on their own concert. Members of the Longhorn Band did more than just execute formations. They played at a variety of spring events that gave them the opportunity to march to a different beat.

The members ' devotion to the band was obvious, especially during fall foot- ball games. Kappa Kappa Psi provided water during rehearsals, as well as Cokes and apples after the games to the entire band. Members were responsible for setting up band equipment at the stadium. " Basically we do any of the manual labor, " Scott Parker, histo- ry government junior, said. By maintaining high standards for in- coming pledges, Kappa Kappa Psi kept its membership to less than 50 men. Although their numbers were small, the group remained a vital element in the success of the Longhorn Band. Be- sides the required one year as a Long- horn Band member, a 2.0 GPA, rec- ommendations and marching ability, the pledges were chosen on the basis of other merits as well. " Pledges must show service toward the band and be outstanding musically. They must also be well-rounded stu- dents who go beyond the call of duty in service to the band, " John Fleming, music education performance senior, said. " We choose the best players and marchers, " Parker said. Though their main function was ser- vice to the band, members also realized the importance of community service. " It ' s becoming a priority now, " Flem- ing said. The group gave free clinics to area middle schools to help them im- prove musically and to " make them aware of who we are, even though that ' s a long way off (for them), " Fleming said. Other service projects included working with Easter Seals and Adopt-a- Highway programs. In their service to the Longhorn Band and the community, Kappa Kappa Psi members found rewards of their own in the formation of lasting friend- ships. " The band takes care of my mu- sic love, but my fraternity brothers are my brotherhood. It ' s a lifelong thing, " Parker said. " Twenty years from now you know you could call one of them and they ' d come to your aid. " Cristy Corbino THIRST QUENCHER: Kappa Kappa Psi members helped out the band in a variety of ways.

Tau Beta Sigma Going back to their roots, the mem- bers of Tau Beta Sigma, the service sorority of the Longhorn Band, encour- aged young musicians to excel by giving them a goal to work toward. The group adopted the Martin Jun- ior High School Band in the fall of 1989 in order to veer away from its solely " internal " ties within the band. The group ' s commitment did not go unnoticed, for the sorority was named one of the ten best chapters in the na- tion. Tau Beta Sigma sponsored nu- GOT IT: At one of the meetings Jennifer Peiffer, liberal arts freshman, Gina Thompson, natural sciences freshman, and Delia Tovar, liberal arts freshman, take notes. Tau Beta Sigma members met regularly on Monday evenings. photo by Charles T. Walbridge merous events for the Martin students, including private help before contest season. Members also volunteered as band judges for the junior high district competition. The group also raised enough funds to finance two scholarships to enable some of the students to attend the Longhorn Music Camp, which was held every summer for junior high and high school students. But majority opinion within the sorority suggested that the highlight of all activities was inviting the kids to Longhorn Band rehearsal. " The kids had so many questions. We gave them buttons to wear, and they seemed to really enjoy it. They were always hugging us too. I think we truly exposed them to something great, " Anita Jenson, communications senior, said. " Tau Beta Sigma ' s goal was to show them that they can succeed ac- ademically and enjoy their music at the same time, " Jenson said. Through their work with the stu- dents, the sorority members experi- enced a change in attitude and outlook. " We now realize that we ' re actually role models. We can give a kid an hour of our time, and it makes an impact, " Christine Peterson, education sopho- more, said. Jenson found that " working in the community wasn ' t hard or a bur- den. Even if the efforts were small, we still felt rewarded. I think the entire organization looks forward to service activities in the future. " Tau Beta Sigma hoped that they had helped decrease the high dropout rate of young band enthusiasts like those from Martin Junior High. " It is so ex- citing to think that some of these kids could grow up to be members of the Longhorn Band themselves, " Peterson said. Kris Leitko FRONT ROW: Katherine Smith.

The endeavor was a noble one, without a doubt, but oftentimes neg- ative or depressing. To the rescue came groups like the Longhorn Basketball Band . . . individuals who " graded the team " and averaged an A+. The band, through its exuberance and devotion, proved that school spirit was still important. Mike Parker, mu- sic psychology senior, said, " Times have changed for the team. When only 2,000 people showed up for a game, the Longhorn Basketball Band was still there to show their support. We ' re still here today. " Prior to this band ' s formation in 1985, the Longhorn Marching Band sent volunteers to play at the Runnin ' Horns ' games. But since the new group evolved, positions in the Basketball Band have been coveted. " Some people support football just because it ' s the ' in ' thing. Longhorn Basketball Band members are here be- cause we love basketball, " Fran Kantor, prebusiness freshman, said. Other members agreed. " Spirit sets this group apart from other groups, " David Wheeler, economics senior, said. " You should see how the band mem- bers ' eyes light up when the team enters the court. Our people are here because they want to be. We ' re not rejects of the marching band. The loud, high, fast music we play brings enthusiasm into the arena, making us and the fans want to get into the game and the evening. " Wheeler added that the band " makes a difference in the game. " Parker said, " No one else yells ' Dang, you dumb! ' to the Aggies when they screw up. And no other group serenades George Mueller each time he enters the court with a rendition of George of the Jungle. " The Longhorn Basketball Band en- joyed a pat on the back and a word of thanks from the team after the 1989 season came to a close. Tom Penders, the men ' s varsity coach, expressed his gratitude to the band with a letter and an autographed basketball at the band ' s last banquet. " The most rewarding aspect of par- ticipating in the band was witnessing the advancement of the team and the band. The band began in 1985 as 39 people who could barely play, " Parker said. " It ' s so great being a part of the union between the band and the team. We ARE the home-court advantage! We ARE the Spirit of the Superdrum!

First, they filled a " void " in the UT Greek system by forming the first Asian fraternity, Paul Yen, Plan II senior, said. Secondly, they created an outlet for new students who found it difficult to meet people in the large, already es- tablished Asian clubs. " I had that problem as a freshman, " President Shane Yang, econom- ics finance senior, said. " The other Asian groups usually have 100 to 400 members, and they hold a few dances each year where you are expected to go and make friends. It ' s hard to meet people that way. " Furthermore, Yang said the existing Asian groups were divided by nation- ality and were not community service oriented. " We wanted to establish a smaller group with diverse nationalities that emphasized service, " Yen said. Once established, the fraternity ' s 35 active Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese members got busy. Members raised money to sponsor a child in the Phil- ippines by holding a bake sale. For the residents of a local retirement home, the fraternity performed skits and baked cookies. In October, the club co- sponsored a Halloween project with the Asian Business Students Association. They also helped the Salvation Army, and the Special Olympics. For the Round-Up parade, they en- tered a float featuring what Yang de- scribed as " an East-West cooperation theme, " an eight-foot Godzilla helping a giant armadillo open a beer can. " It was a very eventful year, " Yang said. " It ' s definitely going the way we envisioned it.

The Hellraisers, with their faces painted bright orange and white, were easy to spot at football games, where their rousing cheers for the Longhorns added to the decibel level in Memorial Stadium. They also encouraged Long- horn fans at pep rallies and at other key athletic events. " We try to hit as many basketball, baseball and volleyball games as we pos- sibly can, " President Kevin Marcantel, marketing senior, said. Marcantel and friend Carl Yaquinto formed the Hellraisers in the fall of 1987 the first organization of its kind to support UT athletics by " painting up " before games, Marcantel said. The Hellraisers, whose official pur- pose was to promote a higher level of enthusiasm among UT fans, had 42 members by the fall of 1989. Marcantel said the group ' s increased visibility led to greater student interest. " People know who we are now, " he said. " We got the face recognition at first, but we ' ve been around for a year and people know us by name now. " In addition to showing support to the University, the Hellraisers also devoted time to the city of Austin with com- munity service projects. One of these projects involved trick-or-treating for canned goods for the Austin Capital Area Food Bank on Halloween night. Executive Vice President for Finan- cial Affairs Stephen Brokmeyer, eco- nomics senior, said the event was a suc- cess. " We collected almost 400 pounds of food, " he said. " Everyone was pretty giving. " Brokmeyer, who also chaired the community service committee, said the Hellraisers planned to participate in similar projects throughout the year. " Community service helps broaden the group, " said new member Bradley Carter, business sophomore. He and his roommate collected close to 40 cans of food for the Halloween project. Through both community service and school spirit, the Longhorn Hell- raisers gained recognition and raised enthusiasm levels among Longhorn fans. Emily C. Smith ,ds available.

' ! . -iHel ' J W) and raiseii Longhorn Jumping Club The Longhorn Jumping Team changed its name to Longhorn Jumping Club, but their emphasis on the fun and " spirit of riding " stayed the same. " We ' re a relaxed group that empha- sizes fun, not the formal sport where you kill yourself to win, " said President Teri Pennington, Plan II sophomore. " We just have fun being with people who share our interests and love of horses. " The group in tended to compete as a team at local events, but because of the high costs involved and the lack of funds available, the group ' s goals changed. " We ' re a club for people interested in horseback riding non-competitively, al- though some members do compete on their own. Most people can ' t afford les- sons or their own horses, so we offer lessons at reduced rates, " Amy Havekost, German international busi- ness junior, said. Havekost said she be- gan riding competitively at age 1 1 and did so for five years. " I had to give it up because of the time commitment required, but this (the club) was a good way for me to continue to pursue my interest, " she said. Pennington also rode competitively for many years, but most of the club ' s members had little or no previous rid- ing experience. Lessons were taught daily at Switch Willow Stables in North Austin, using the stable ' s horses. The club taught English rid ing, and its members also sponsored trail rides and mock fox- hunts. Club members participated in the Round-Up parade, had a Valentine ' s Day trail ride at Medway Ranch, and held exhibitions with other university equestrian clubs. " We try to give people a good range of activities, " Pennington said. " At least one will interest every person.

The orchestra played " The Carousel Waltz, " and the Long- horn Singers began their first-ever fully staged musical. Under the musical direction of Al- bert Clark, the Longhorn Singers gave three performances of Carousel, a Broadway musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein, on Feb. 1-3 at the Par- amount Theater. The decision to perform Carousel was made in May 1989. " We needed some- thing that would work well with a large cast, " President Charles Langley, mar- keting junior, said. Actual rehearsal, however, began after Christmas. " We all came back ten days early . . . and put in a 40-hour work week, " said Langley. Janet Kopec, the director from Rich- land College, kept the production close to the original Broadway show, though some of the dance scenes were con- densed. And from the entire group of Longhorn Singers, only a few were mu- sic majors. " That ' s what is very unique about us. We do (this just) because we enjoy it, " Langley said. Besides the long hours of rehearsal, members helped build props and sew costumes. Revenues from past perfor- mances, alumni support and backing by The Avion Group of Dallas provided the Singers with most of the funds. Among the leading roles in the cast was Chris Talbert, a graduate student in vocal performance. In only his sec- ond semester with the Longhorn Sing- ers, he earned the leading male role of Billy Bigelow. Jennifer Wydra, drama junior, played the female lead as the character Julie Jordan. In the final scene, the entire cast joined together to sing the love song " You ' ll Never Walk Alone. " Marcie Merriell, an advertising senior who played the role of Nettie Fowler, said that the most enjoyable aspect in the production of Carousel was the week before the performance. " All these people are my friends. (They) put their heart and soul to work for something they really care about.

The Matchmates, a support organization for the nationally ranked tennis team, did all they could to make sure fellow Longhorns knew about the team ' s success. " Attendance has always been low at the matches. It ' s a shame because the players work hard and are really good, " Nathalie Leighton, finance manage- ment senior, said. " Through advertis- ing we hope to get students rallied to- gether to come out and support the team. " The Matchmates, a group of 42 girls, focused in 1990 on advertisements. The team hung signs around campus in advance of every home game and took out ads in The Daily Texan. " Our posters have the tennis sched- ule printed on them, which makes the publicity campaign a lot more effec- tive, " Leighton said. " We also wanted to market the tennis team to organ- izations that would be interested, so we hung signs in various country clubs around Austin. We also contacted area high school tennis coaches and invited them and their teams to come out and watch. " Not only did the group support the tennis team, but many of the members played as well. " I have always liked ten- nis. I really love the game and I like to see the ' Horns play, " Marci Thatcher, business pre-law freshman, said. " Whatever the team lacks in support, the Matchmates try and make it up and I think the team is really appreciative of our efforts. " Because of their love of the sport, the Matchmates made sure fellow Long- horns took notice of the team ' s success.

Four years ago the team was on pro- bation due to conduct and rules vio- lations. Their budget was denied, they had no established player base, and needed a coach. Then came along Rob- ert Parr, a student and nationally li- censed coach, who decided to bring the team up from the rut they had fallen into. Primarily, the team needed play- ers. In 1989 44 players were chosen for the team. These players formed the core of the team. " We have experi- enced an amazing amount of growth. We have a very young team, who all will be returning next year. This forms a good nucleus, " Parr, economics senior, said. The team played in the Western di- vision of the Texas Collegiate Soccer League. Western division schools in- cluded Baylor, Southwest Texas, Texas A M, and the University of Texas. In 1989, the group lost to Rice, The East- ern division winner, in the semifinals 1 to 0, but still managed to come out with a 6-2-3 record the best in many years. " Spirited is how I would describe the team. We ' re not a bunch of superstars, CAGED IN: With hard work and electrifying performances, soccer club members were able to boost the attendance at home soccer games.

WHAM!: Tommy Redmond, prebusiness sophomore, goes for a goal. photos by George Bridges but we work hard and we work togeth- er, " Bryan Hardwick, team captain and government sophomore, said. The spirit of the team seems to be the driving force behind their success. The team was not only striving for national recognition through the National Col- legiate Club Championship, but also looking for recognition right here at the University. Several attempts have been made to turn the club into a var- sity team, but all failed. The lack of funding halted the process, so the team was left up to its own ingenuity to fund the varsity efforts. " In one semester we converted a club soccer team that for 25 years had the capabilities to be more into the team we knew it could be, " Parr said. They set up a match between the A M club and their own, and planned out a highly publicized game. In the end the game drew seventeen hundred people from the school and community who came out to show their support. These people not only watched the game, but gave donations to support the team as well. The club collected $2500 in donations. The money was set aside for the formation of a varsity team. UT Men ' s Soccer made some incred- ible strides in 1989, but the group hoped to attain even more in the fu- ture. The group planned to become national champs and form a varsity team at UT, and judging from past ac- complishments, it looked like smooth sailing.

The organization planned a casino complete with blackjack, roulette and craps tables. Participants purchased raf- fle tickets with their winnings, and local businesses donated the prizes. After the raffle, the sorority present- ed its 15 new pledges to the audience and gave out service awards. The eve- ning ended with a dance. Diana Dominguez, economics senior, received the top award of Active of the Year. Stephanie Duigon, fine arts jun- ior, won the Sisterhood Award and Cynthia Tinajero, marketing senior, re- ceived the Spirit Award. Angela Sin- cleair, engineeringjunior, and Shannon Larriviere, communications sopho- more, both won the Leadership Award. " It was an honor, because we ' re all sisters, and to be chosen as an example of that principle was wonderful, " Duigon said. The sorority, which was founded in 1987, was unique in that the UT chap- ter was the only one of its kind. The group ' s goal was to become a national sorority with chapters at other schools. " We ' re always looking for more people. We ' re very accepting of new members and we all share a belief in the Christian faith, " Tinajero said. Besides sponsoring " A Night in Mon- te Carlo, " the group participated in a host of other projects including plan- ning a baby shower for a pregnant teenager and volunteering in a soup kitchen that fed the homeless. The fact that the sorority was a new one seemed to be a special feature for its members. " Someday, when the so- rority is a national one, I can say I was there, and I helped to create the tra- ditions, " Duigon said. Karen Siber I ' ' EachOniftj 1 nvhounof Biwrkooior v i- Ph % ' .

" We are mainly a service organization to the University and to the Austin commu- nity in general. Nothing we do is man- datory, but what you put in is what you get out of it. " Each Orange Jacket member put in many hours of volunteer work through- out the year. " Each girl has a contin- uous service project they are required to work on for at least an hour per week, " Anneke Schroen, Plan II senior, said. " They may choose to help out at the Huntington Art Gallery, tutor stu- dents at Maplewood Elementary School, aid the blind students of UT or work at the Austin Mental Hospital. " The Orange Jackets also worked on projects as a group. " We enjoyed hold- ing parties for Ramsey Place, our adopt- ed nursing home, during Halloween, Valentine ' s Day and other holidays, " Dina Thomas, marketing finance jun- ior, said. Some members led Bible study groups or sponsored bingo games for the residents at Ramsey Place in ad- dition to their other projects. Another event the Orange Jackets participated at was the Goodwill Coats for Kids drive. The drive gave under- privileged children much-needed win- ter garments. Members also sponsored a Halloween carnival held at Brack- enridge Hospital. Service was an important part of be- ing an Orange Jacket.

In J987, a group of geography stu- dents attended the Summer Geography Program at Oxford University. Within weeks of meeting one another, they be- gan spending a lot of time together. " It took 3,000 miles of travel to bring us together, " Kris Ermis, psychology senior, said. " And we ' ve been the best of friends ever since. " Shannon Box, government senior, said, " The club is a mixture of the best of English culture and society and the worst of America ' s the stereotypical Texan. We are just as likely to host an ultra-civilized game of croquet on the front lawn as we are to host a down- home Texas barbecue. " Group members enjoyed picnics, poolside brunches, tubing on the Guadalupe River and " White Trash Barbecues, " at which people ate bar- becue at Club Blanco Trash and ac- cording to Box, " sampled the grossest, cheapest beer known to man. " The group also marched in formal British attire at the Round-Up parade. Another activity unique to the club was the " God Save the Queen Formal Garden Par ty and Croquette Match. " At this event members gathered in for- mal dress for poolside brunches and games of croquet. The evening was completed by members taking dips into the pool . . . fully clothed. Members tried to include their pro- fessors in their activities as well. " If we aren ' t sipping tea to Handel or reading poems by our favorite British poets, we ' re usually persuading our geogra- phy professors to attend social func- tions, " Ermis said. The group ' s main purpose was the promotion of the English culture and the Oxford experience. " While living there we gained an ap- preciation and respect for the British, and we wanted to bring elements of their lifestyle back to the states, " Ermis said. Cheronda M.

It ' s a wonderful way for stu- dents to blow off steam. When you ' re at the lake, campus just doesn ' t exist. For awhile, it ' s just you and the wind and the water and the boat, " Steven Eller, accounting senior, said. So that ' s why students pay dues and join the club? Not completely true. . . The UT Sailing Club prided itself on its 20 years of service to would-be cam- pus sailors. Commodore Dave Read, physics graduate student, added that he was " not too sure any other sports clubs could say that. " Read explained, " The goal of the Sailing Club is to provide instructional, recreational sailing inex- pensively to a group " of willing par- ticipants. Sandy Anderson, business junior, said, " We ' re interested in sailing, not only for ourselves, but for others too. " Generally, the club met such goals by offering weekly Saturday Sails in both the fall and spring. All those interested gathered at RLM at 10 a.m. and headed for Highland Lake Marina to catch some rays and some wind. However, the 1989-90 officers decid- ed to pursue an endeavor that would benefit novice sailors and promote more interest in the sport; thus, the club ' s first-ever Novice Regatta evolved. The race, held April 28, was open to all first semester novices. The turnout peaked at about 15 contestants and 50 fans. Anderson said, " The race really fostered the desire to learn to sail among club members, " and Read agreed that the regatta " helped new members to try a hand against each other. " Brian Sullivan, computer sci- ence freshman, tried his hand and won. Finally, Read explained that " seeing people get fired up enough to get out there and try sailing " was personally rewarding. And when asked how the first annual Novice Regatta affected the club itself, Eller said, " The race pro- vided just the right nudge we, and es- pecially the new members, needed in the right direction.

Did you ever won- der who was responsible for his upkeep? Well, it was the Silver Spurs, of course! The Silver Spurs, founded in 1955, had become a part of Longhorn tra- dition mainly through the group ' s as- sociation with the mascot Bevo. The group served the University and the city of Austin through its support of the athletic teams, UT-sponsored events and several different fundraisers. The ownership and responsibility of the mascot was the Spurs ' main service to the University. Bevo ' s fame was na- tionwide, thanks to the successful ath- letic and academic achievements of the University, and members said they were proud to be a part of that success. In addition to caring for Bevo, the Silver Spurs held fundraisers and ac- tivities, proceeds from which went to the Austin Boy ' s Club. Some of the fundraisers included a concert dinner featuring Waylon Jennings. They also sponsored the annual Concert and Chili Cook-off. Travis Kelley, history junior, described the Spurs as " a group that helps out the less fortunate and gives something back. " The Silver Spurs consisted of almost 100 members, who were invited to join the organization through a formal tap- in. In 1989, Dean Maloney and Willie Kocurek, directors at the Austin Boy ' s Club, spoke at the tap-in. Kocurek praised the club for the help and sup- port the group gave to the community.

Its focus lay in increas- ing the diversity of the group. " We want to recruit new kinds of people; most of the students are not informed about what we do. We want to get out there with some publicity, and form a more well-rounded group, " Jamie Al- bracht, biology pre-med senior, said. The Silver Spurs represented the pride that UT students had in their school and their community. For 45 years the group had helped those that were less fortunate, and service of this sort was what made UT organizations such a welcomed part of the Austin community. Ayes ha Gray !88 Silver Spurs Ambassador meets UT students on a Singapore Students ' Association It ' s safe to say that most Americans couldn ' t name their ambassadors to other countries, much less get the chance to meet them. UT students from Singapore, however, got that chance. Tommy Koh, Singapore ' s ambassa- dor to the United States, met members of the Singapore Stu dents ' Association while on an official visit to Texas in November. Koh spoke with the group about issues affecting Singapore stu- dents studying in the United States. " He discussed how we would go about getting a job in Singapore and how our degree would be viewed in Singapore, " Hwe-Peng Hsu, advertis- ing junior, said. These were active con- cerns of the association because they worked to help students adjust both at the University and upon returning to Singapore. Although recognition of UT degrees in Singapore was not a problem, there was concern about transferring honors degrees. Kim Yew, manage- ment management information sys- tems senior, explained that while bach- elor ' s and master ' s degrees were easily accepted, recognition was not given to those graduating with honors in their undergraduate studies. The association worked with the ap- propriate government agencies and businesses in Singapore to aid UT stu- dents in job placement after gradua- tion. Yew said that the students were for- tunate to have the opportunity to visit with Koh. Koh was a famous figure in his country, having held the position of dean at the National University of Sin- gapore. He also was the United Nations representative from Singapore before his ambassadorship. The students said that Koh had made a big impact on U.S.-Singapore rela- tions. He was involved with those stu- dents studying in the United States, of- ten lobbying for them in Singapore. " He told us that if there was anything we needed, the embassy in Washington would try to help, " Yew said. About 30 to 40 members attended the tea reception with Koh. They were full of compliments about his person- ality and style. " I was impressed that he took the time to come and talk to us. He is very knowledgeable, has a good sense of humor and is calm and collected, " Thomas Hu, finance senior, said. " His visit made us feel special and it shows that he thinks highly of UT as one of the preeminent colleges in the U.S., " Hu continued. " We want to fur- ther the University of Texas in making a name for itself in Singapore.

Let ' s party! " could have been the motto of the University Ski Club. Both on and off the slopes, the group provided its members with great social opportunities. " It ' s a great way to meet a lot of people, " said Jean Rieger, prebusiness sophomore. Rieger traveled to Breck- enridge, Colo., with 400 other students for a week of skiing and other activities after Christmas. Skiers enjoyed picnics and wine and cheese parties on the mountain, as well as daily happy hours after skiing. The parties usually went on into the eve- ning. Steve Pass, zoology pre-med sen- ior, said he never had to worry about food while on the trip, because the club ' s parties provided plenty to eat and drink. " We have people from all majors and all social types, " President David Kane, finance senior, said. " We try to provide different activities for all types of peo- pie. " The ski club had 600 members, most of whom went on at least one of the three trips the club took every year. The trips were usually taken during the Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break holidays. The club skied in different places each trip. " We ' d like to venture on out to California and Wyoming, " said Kane, but the distance would make planning difficult. " We ' re always up for suggestions on places to go. We even have a ski hotline to give people in- formation on the club. " On the Christmas trip, the days were sunny enough to get a tan and warm enough to ski without a coat. The great weather and activities added up for fun. After all, as Pass said, " Going skiing with 450 college students guarantees a good time.

And in large classes, the prospect of a teacher remembering one student ' s name out of hundreds seemed impos- sible. Jenni Logan, journalism junior, said many Spooks " believe their professors don ' t want to know them. " To alleviate this attitude, the Spooks, a spirit and service organization of freshman and sophomore girls, held an Apple Pol- ishing event every fall to introduce their members to some of the faculty. " Teachers love these kind of events. It gives them an opportunity to meet some of their students, " Logan said. Meredith Hurley, education junior, said some students were intimidated about asking their professors, but " we stress that they (the professors) are hu- man beings, not dictators. " The Apple Polishing took place Nov. 8 in the Texas Union Eastwoods Room. James Vick, vice president of student affairs, spoke about the students grad- ing the University and answered many questions about the topic. More than an opportunity to get to- gether with their professors, the event helped Spooks meet other people ' s teachers and find out what classes to take in the future. Wrapping up the event in traditional fashion, the Spooks ended with the Texas fight song, only this time their professors sang along. J.

" In 1989 the club sponsored three for- eign exchange students: one each from England, Australia and Switzerland. The students lived at the club ' s house, along with 1 2 of the club ' s 35 members. The club voted to sponsor the ex- change students after members in- volved with the International Student Office made the suggestion. " It ' s exposed us to different cultures. Just living with and partying with these guys, we ' re learning a lot about these countries and the people who live there, " Jeff Baumgarten, electrical en- gineering senior, said. The club didn ' t neglect the other el- ements of their motto either. The qual- ities " scholarship " and " leadership " were embodied in their annual Texas Independence Day Breakfast on March 2. The breakfast honored outstanding faculty and seniors, such as member Mark Somerville, Plan II electrical en- gineering senior. He was named a Rhodes Scholar and Dad ' s Day Out- standing Student. The club, founded in 1925 and named after an East Texas Indian tribe, " strives to build friendships just like any other fraternal organization, " Baum- garten said. " The difference is that the members we ask to join are people the club thinks are outstanding, " Alan Seese, chemical engineering junior, said.

No, the Texas Angels were far from being dangerous. However, they were liaisons between athletic recruits and the University. The Angels rolled out the red carpet for all UT hopefuls and gave extensive tours of the University and its athletic facilities. While their name was not sug- gestive of the hard work they per- formed, these women committed them- selves to much more than being just hostesses to prospective UT athletes. The Texas Angels served as a sup- port group for visiting high school seni- ors who had UT sports on their minds. By writing letters to athletes and work- ing intensively with the coaches and players, they tried to persuade these young men to choose the University as their new home. As Kim Prince, busi- ness senior, said, " We ' re cultivating re- lations between the coaches and play- ers, trying to get them to come to UT. The University sells itself. It ' s the peo- ple that add to it! " But the Angels ' work involved far more than just recruiting. " We at- tempted to show a different side of the University rather than just athletics. We want them to know that they ' re not just a number. They have us as friends and there are many other people who are there for them, " Madelon High- smith, communications junior, said. Each one of the Texas Angels rep- resented a peer, someone to consult when there were any questions. If the recruits decided on the University, the Texas Angels would have been their first real contact. " From the letters written back and forth between the pro- spective athletes and ourselves, friend- ships developed. Not only did we keep track of the athletes ' grades, but also how they were doing as individuals, " Candy Plummer, Plan II senior, said.

Although the Texas Equestrian Team was established at the University two years ago, fall 1989 represented the first semester of their membership in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Asso- ciation. This involvement finally al- lowed them to bring the excitement of horse shows and competitions to local attention. In the past, since no Southern state was as yet a member of IHSA, Texas team members were forced to travel far and wide to attend competitions spon- sored by other regions in other states. These extensive road trips, however, began to take their toll, wearing out the members ' patience as well as their purses. The members therefore decid- ed that it was time to start a new region of horse competition in the South. President Barbara Ballard, biolo- gy finance j unior said, " We started the process by successfully competing in re- gion six. One of our riders even made it to nationals. This proved to others that we were serious about starting our own region. " A few members then traveled to neighboring colleges like Baylor and Texas A M, uncovering a great deal of enthusiastic support for the idea. The members completed the application process for IHSA membership. Finally, after much tedious work by all the members, the Texas Equestrian Team organized and hosted the first Texas Intercollegate Equestrian Annual Hun- ter-Jumper Schooling Show at the Her- itage Center in Austin. The only three schools in attendance were the University, Texas A M and Texas A I; however, the show featured a wide range of possible categories they could enter. The divisions ranged from beginner to advanced levels, Western and English riding styles and represen- tation as individuals or team members. An interesting aspect of the compe- tition was pointed out by Ballard. " You don ' t supply your own horse, but rather are provided with one by the host school. This is to equalize it and make it a fair competition, " she said. This stip- ulation proved useful since the team members ' riding ability levels differed so greatly. The general consensus about the show was very positive, and the com- petitors said it was well organized. Vice President Leslie White, liberal arts sophomore, said, " Texas isn ' t used to having some- thing like this, but once it catches on, it will be bigger and better. It ' s an activity that teaches sportsmanship and team spirit. " White also expressed the hope that the team would " learn from our mis- takes and grow from those and other experiences. " The team had big plans, inspired by the success of their first show, to play host to a fundraising show and from the proceeds sponsor yet another collegiate horse show in Spring 1990.

Texas Cowboys The Longhorns scored a touchdown, the cannon boomed, and the crowd went wild. The enthusiastic group re- sponsible for this signal of victory was none other than the Texas Cowboys. However, there was another side to this spirited organization that was not as well known. In addition to being at the heart of the excitement of cheering on the Longhorns, the Cowboys also partici- pated in a variety of projects that pro- vided assistance to many worthy causes in the Austin community. One group that received much of the Cowboys ' support was the Austin As- sociation for Retarded Citizens. This group, which mainly assisted retarded children, received much of their finan- cial resources from the fundraising ac- tivities of the Cowboys. The major fundraising activity was the Harvest Moon musical concert. This was a fall program that featured well-known singers such as John Con- nlee and Gary P. Nunn. President Joe Worsham, history senior, said, " Those guys were great. By helping us out with their services, they also did their part in supporting an important local charity. " Vice-President Corey Pullen, eco- nomics senior, said, " Another impor- tant supporter of our effort were the local merchants and businesses. They bought ads in our ad books, which pro- vided us with the funding to organize the concert in the first place. " Harvest Moon was held at the Austin Opera House and had a turnout of more than 2,000 people. The Cowboys raised $15,000 through this successful program. Worsham said, " We have high hopes for another $15,000 through our second musical program, which is the Spring Music Festival. If we can do that, this would be the first year that we would have provided the AARC with as much as $30,000. " Along with fundraising, the Cowboys also assisted many organizations with needed services. They helped out with landscaping and renovating of housing facilities at the HOBO center, a shelter for homeless people and runaways. They also organized and participated in a carnival for the Rosedale Center. At this function, the young men dressed up as clowns and handed out balloons, and also organized events such as wheel- chair races. The Cowboys ' influence and assis- tance had become widespread in the Austin community. However, while many organizations had come to de- pend on their outside assistance, the Cowboys themselves had a lot to gain from their activities. New member Rhodes Baker, history sophomore, said, " It gives you a good feeling to know that you ' re making a difference in so many worthwhile causes. I ' m glad to be able to serve Austin charities and I hope we continue to do so in the future.

The Texas Cowgirls, an hon- orary social organization, helped to build relationships between members of different sororities. Every semester, four women from each sorority, as well as a few inde- pendents, were nominated, voted on and initiated into the organization at the tap-in ceremony held at Player ' s Burger ' s and Biergarten. President Chris Partida, interior de- sign senior, said, " When girls get into sororities, they have tendencies to not branch out and meet others. " The Cowgirls overcame this by providing so- cial functions where different sorority members could meet. Two parties, ranging from casual to formal, were held each semester to pro- vide the women with additional oppor- tunities to get acquainted. The first of the fall socials was a well-attended re- ception at the Hyatt Hotel. Weekly meetings brought the women together, and gatherings at Shady Springs in North Austin provided an atmosphere of music, relaxation and friendship. In the spring the group also held a Reggae party at Mercado Caribe. While the Cowgirls ' main function was a social one, service to the com- munity also played a role. Most service functions were done through individual sororities, but the Cowgirls ' own proj- ects included decorating an Austin nursing home on Halloween and sur- prising the residents there with bags of candy. On top of that, during Round- Up weekend the group participated in a Bullriding Contest. All proceeds ben- efited the Cerebral Palsy Association. " The Bullriding Contest was a great idea, " Stacy Gruen, fashion merchan- dising senior, said. " It was loads of fun and something that people don ' t get a chance to experience everyday. In ad- dition to having a lot of fun we also raised a lot of money for a great cause. We killed two birds with one stone. " Overall, the Cowgirls ' activities, whether social or service-oriented, ac- complished similar effects. " The Cowgirls ' largest asset is that it helps people from not getting caught within their own group, " Jackie Beckwith, broadcast journalism junior, said. " This group fosters friendships among differ- ent sorority members and teaches them to be able to work with others. " Cristy Corbino FRONT ROW: CrisM.Pariida, Amy Katherme Green.

Nevertheless, members set ambitious goals for the team and main- tained the high level of excellence achieved in past years. The top-seeded team encountered a few obstacles, such as the coach ' s res- ignation and having mainly rookies on the team. Even so, the members rallied together and had one of the best turn- outs that the team had ever shown. President John Oliveri, fi- nance marketing junior, was one of the members onto whom fell the respon- sibility of coaching the team. " The lack of a coach definitely made things more difficult for us, but I think we dealt with that and did very well in spite of it, " Oliveri said. The team members aspired to win the championship playoffs held in April at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. A victory there would mean the South- west Conference title for the team. The team also hoped to expand their playing horizons to include national tourna- ments. Previously, the team had only participated in the Texas area. The team sold t-shirts and had the Lacrosse Little Sisters set up a table in the West Mall. The Little Sisters, pro- vided an important source of spirit for the lacrosse team. The group also took time out of their own practice schedules to hold scrim- mages with various Austin high schools.

" While being good practice for our own team, these scrimmages provide the kids with good experience especially if they want to continue with the sport later on, " Tim Curran, business junior, said. All of these activities helped to make the general public more aware of their sport. " The turnouts at the games seem to be increasing. Lacrosse appears to be becoming much more well-known at UT.

But before anybody could see these athletes, the Texas Relays Student Committee had to organize the meet. Their efforts were successful because between 15,000 and 20,000 spectators showed up for the meet. According to Co-Chairman Kaylea Miller, elementary education senior, the committee was divided into four sub-groups. The subcommittees were entries, decathlon heptathlon, public- ity and campus activities. Campus activities chairwoman Eliz- abeth Bond, economics senior, said, " We ' re responsible for publicity on the UT campus. We set up the table on the West Mall, pass out buttons and ad- vertise in The Daily Texan. " " We wanted to reach out to the stu- dents and get them involved, " Andrew Springate, history senior, said. " We had to round up student support, get busi- nesses to advertise the Relays on their marquees and sell ads for the pro- gram. " Committee members were also on the field during the meet moving hurdles, raking the sand in the long-jump pit and making sure things ran smoothly for both athletes and officials. " It was an exciting track meet. We had some really big schools here, like UCLA schools that are known for their strong teams, " Miller said. Speaking of big schools, the Texas Relays Track Meet was one of the three national meets known as the " Triple Crown " because athletes could use the meet as a qualifier for the NCAA out- door championships. The track meet itself was known for its organization and for events running on schedule, and this was impressive considering the fact that the Texas Relays was the only national track meet run completely by students University of Texas stu- dents.

" We hope with this added incentive the team will be able to reach new heights. " The team traveled to different schools and experienced new exhilara- tion as part of the conference. Members hoped to someday achieve the honor of first place in their conference, but " that will take a lot of hard work and de- termination, " Sharon Chen, biolo- gy pre-med sophomore, said. Because the team received little pub- licity, they were constantly looking for new recruits, members said. " We try to get out there and recruit people, but for the most part they find us, " Chen said. The team had a table on the West Mall at the beginning of the year to give out game schedules, and they also hung posters around campus announcing tryouts and game times. Overall, the team was moving up fast, and with their new participation in TWISC, Texas Women ' s Soccer was a team to watch. Ayesha Gray 302- Texas Women ' s Soccer The chorus that makes University Chorus Accompanied by the Bates Recital Hall organ, a harpsichord and a small orchestra, members of the University Chorus, the University ' s choir for non- majors, sang Vivaldi ' s 18th century masterpiece Gloria in professional style. They performed for an audience of about 250 on Nov. 1 2. It was the first of two concerts in 1989. " We worked very hard on Gloria, " President Carla Fraga, English senior, said. " We knew we could do it. " The chorus began work on the piece in September, devoting most of their regular practice sessions, about three hours a week, to it. Chorus Conductor Robert Rene Galvan, a doctoral candidate in choral conducting, said he chose the piece be- cause " it ' s a glorious piece and a fa- vorite with audiences. " It also gave stu- dents the oppurtunity to sing solos. Galvan said he was very pleased with the performance. HEAVENLY MUSIC: Choral members sing Propter Magnam Gloriam, accompanied by the or- gan in Bates Recital Hall. photo by Hannes Hacker " It ' s a talented group, " Galvan said. " This group really enjoys working, they ' re dedicated and they give good concerts. " Galvan was especially proud of the t enors. " There are only five tenors, while other sections have 20 or more, and they held their own, " he said. Fraga credits Galvan with the group ' s success. " The director is fundamental to a good choir, " Fraga said. " Robert has driven us to be extra- dedicated. " Music is very emotional. If you don ' t feel it, forget it. He [Galvan] hits it from all angles emotional, spiritual and intellectual, " Fraga said. Chorus members ' musical back- grounds range from those who had been singing since they were three years old, to others who had no singing experience. Galvan said his job as conductor was to combine the people and their dif- ferent backgrounds and form a " unified whole. " " It ' s up to me to coalesce the material and bring the people together to ex- press the poetic meaning of the music, " he said.

They were ruth- less and vicious in their attacks. All in all, about 500 people had been " held up " by the time the Texas Wranglers were through. No, they weren ' t crim- inals or thugs just students partic- ipating in organizing a worthy cause. " We receive special permission from the city of Austin to do this project. City officials don ' t want just anybody stand- ing on the corner asking for money, " John Fischer, zoology pre-medicine senior, said. " It ' s fun and passersby are usually quite receptive. " Holdup was an annual event spon- sored by the Texas Wranglers. The event was just that, a " stickup " whereby Wranglers mugged people for their money. All funds collected were do- nated to Easter Seals. " Our guys are situated throughout Austin. We usually collect about $1,000, " Fischer said. The Wranglers, the official spirit or- ganization of the men ' s basketball team, were more than just hellraisers. The group participated in a host of other activities, such as pushball. " The pushball contest is an all-out brawl. The only rule is you can ' t bla- tantly punch someone in the face. It ' s a real rush, " David Dixon, history senior, said. " We ' ve won the last five years. It ' s fun to see how the Wranglers come together and destroy every opponent that we have ever competed against. This year will probably be no differ- ent. " The Wranglers served the city of Austin in a variety of ways. The group did service projects for the Austin State School and Ronald McDonald House, to name a few. " It ' s great to see that a University organization can come together, get in- volved in the community, and have fun doing it at the same time, " Dixon said. " I wish there were more groups that participated. " From the street corners they yelled and they screamed. They weren ' t crim- inals, but they managed to gain a lot of money just by asking for it.

Most everybody was watching the 49ers thrash the Broncos, but if you had walked into the the University Meth- odist Church at 6 p.m. you would have only seen the TV on, tuned in to the Super Bowl, and scattered plates con- taining half-eaten Subway sandwiches. No one would have been in sight. Was it the Twilight Zone? Hardly. The owners of these half- eaten sandwiches were led away from the Super Bowl by a much more pow- erful being the Holy Ghost. At 6 p.m., these college students went to church, as they did every Sunday night at the University Methodist Church on the corner of 24th and Guadalupe. Besides Sunday worship, with dinners provided by different church members afterwards, the University Methodist Fellowship Organization also sent care packages to Central American refugees, sponsored retreats at various church members ' lakehouses and attended communion every week. " An advantage of being a member is that the members of the church are very supportive of college students, " Amy E. Townsend, kinesiology soph- omore, said. " For instance, around fi- nals time we ' re allowed to come here and use several of the rooms to study in. They also provide snacks for us when we need a break. " Laura Walsh, French junior, said, " The church supports growth, helping people to adjust from the role of being told to get into the car to the role of telling someone to get into the car. " These were sentiments all of the members shared. The organization, originally known as the Wesley Foundation, was small, with only about 30-35 members. When asked why he joined the group, Robb Wilson, chemistry sophomore, said, " Coming from a Methodist group in San Antonio, I was looking for a nice place of spiritual worship and a place where I could meet other people. It also helps you to start out the week right.

Entering numerous tournaments over the year and practicing on a private lake prepared them for competing with some of the best teams in the country. In their regional tournament, the team placed second behind Northeast- ern Louisiana University. " NLU always places and always goes to nationals, so the rest of us in the region strive for second, " Jennifer Klein, kinesiology sophomore, said. " Regionals were de- cided by one competition only. The other tournaments throughout the year are only for fun and practice, " Klein said. In October, the team flew to Mil- lidgeville, Ga., for a four-day weekend of hard competition at the national tournament. " We competed against some incredible teams. Unlike some sports, they allow professionals to com- pete, " Klein said. Van Parker, biology senior, said ski- ing against the best in the nation was a big challenge. " It was really intense. Everyone wanted to do their best to avoid embarassment, " Parker said. " It was nice to ski in the same league with the pros. " On the first day of the tournament, the team practiced, and the next two days were spent competing. The tour- nament included many different events, such as slalom skiing, trick skiing and jumping. " NLU was there cheering us on. You like to see people from your region win, " Parker said. The team placed ninth in the nation even though many of their veteran skiers graduated last year. " We did out- standing with the skiers we took, " Par- ker said. Despite the problems, the team man- aged to do well. After the competition, a huge banquet was held and the team received its trophy. Many of the pro skiers also attended. " It was really fun to get to see and meet them because these are the people that you see on the front of waterski magazines, " Klein said. Denis e Bush UT Waterski 307 Determined wrestlers took all their opponents UT Wrestling Team The UT Wrestling Team did not al- low anything to pin them down. After the disappointment of having their only home tournament cancelled, roadtrips were destined to fill the remainder of their season. Yet the wrestlers proceeded to do very well in other statewide meets such as the Bobcat Takedown Tournament at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. " We won. We stomped everyone! " John Heston, electrical en- gineering graduate student, said. Although some of the official mem- bers failed to show up for practices and meets, the dedicated wrestlers gained some benefits from UT Wrestling. " We have a great time. It ' s not mak- ing any super Olympic stars out of us, but we ' re having a lot of fun, " Darren DeStefano, business sophomore, said. In competition, the main rival was as usual Texas A M. For example, the only opponent taking Sandra Dom- browski, aerospace engineering fresh- man, in her weight division happened to be from A M. There were no other girls competing on the team with her, nor were there any throughout the state. She said she had no problem wres- tling with the guys, for they never treat- ed her as any less t han an equal. Be- cause this was her first year, Dombrowski was excited about winning at the Southwest tournament. " Even though I won because there were no other people in my division, I ' m getting ready for next year, " Dom- browski said. " With the experience of this year, hopefully I ' ll do well. " The team was able to gain a lot of valuable experience, and as a group they were pleased with their success. " It ' s cheap entertainment, " Heston said, but the rewards of their hard work paid off in their victories.

Members attended conventions to help strengthen their group and planned events that served the community. In addition to helping others, the YMCA also spent some time hosting 12 international camp counselors aged 18- 25. The counselors came from coun- tries such as Africa, Israel, and Brazil. " We took them to places like Barton Springs and Threadgill ' s to show them what Austin is like, " Jamie Hadley, eco- nomics senior, said. In April, the YMCA sponsored Eeyore ' s 27th Annual Birthday Party. The non-profit organization sold food and drinks to raise money. The party was held at Zilker Park and has been sponsored by the group since its in- ception. The YMCA also sponsored a Teen Parent Council, whose members worked with potential high school dro- pouts. Members helped pregnant stu- dents that wanted to stay in school by looking after their children and assist- ing them with their children ' s needs. The club also tutored students who were having problems in school or re- turning to school after an extended ab- sence. " There is a real need for these programs. It can help kids get back into school and stay in it, " Eva Gallegos, English journalism senior, said. " It is hard, but we do what we can during the limited free time we have. " The club hoped to plan other proj- ects such as Homeless Awareness Week and a campus-wide recycling program. " There is so much work to be done, but we put in as many hours as we can at the YMCA, " Dawn Mulkay, liberal arts sen- ior, said.

We are the children. We are the ones that make a brighter day, just you and me. " For members of the Greek and Service Organization, these lyrics from the " We Are The World " album took on a new meaning. " Since we ' re fortunate enough to be receiving an education, this is one way to do something for others. Students should want to do community service, " David Nelson, Plan II economics jun- ior, said. And these students did want to serve. The Greek and Service organization, founded in 1988, was composed of 40 different student organizations, includ- ing fraternity, sorority and service groups. Their calendar involved 75-100 service projects throughout the aca- demic year. At its inception, the group ' s main project was nursing homes. In 1989, the club branched out and included the homeless as well. The club participated in Willie Nelson ' s Helping Our Broth- ers Out (HOBO) benefit for the home- less, and members also spent three days a week serving meals and working in a downtown soup kitchen.

The Salvation Army has a lot of rules for those who would like a meal. We feed 200-250 people a day regardless, " Founder Don Kloster, eco- nomics senior, said. The organization also attended dances such as the Westminster Manor Nursing Home Country and Western Dance. " There ' s always a shortage of men to dance with the ladies. We attend the dance to make sure the women have a good time, " Nelson said. " There comes a time when we need to lend a hand, when the world must come together as one. " Through numerous service projects, the Greek and Service Organ- ization made these words believable. As Kloster said, " Most college students are only concerned with grades and party- ing. This organization is about social awareness. We want to help.

The team became the Southwest Lacrosse Asso- ciation Champions in 1990. Members were stunned when their coach of the past 1 3 years failed to show up for spring training in January, with- out a word of explanation. " Our initial reaction was that we can ' t do anything except go on. We ' d never had a losing season in 17 years and for the last 3 years we ' d gone to the championship game. We had a reputation and felt we still had to keep up the Texas Lacrosse legacy, " Watson Fung, Plan II junior, said. After an unsuccessful search for a new volunteer coach, the team found leaders within their own ranks. Tim Curran, business junior, and John Oliveri, finance marketing junior be- came coaches as well as players. The biggest difficulty they faced was in " trying to get respect from our peers. But there were a lot of freshmen on the team and I guess they trusted us, " Oliveri said. Curran and Oliveri also had to face the pressures of other time commitments and the problem of si- multaneously playing and coaching. Adding to the team ' s difficulties was the large percentage of freshmen and comparatively small number of seniors. Most players believed that their poten- tial for success was limited to obtaining a winning season. Winning the cham- pionship was unforseeable. Defeating Rice became the turning point of regular season. After this game members realized they had a valid hope of reaching the playoffs. The team ' s hopes were fulfilled. They traveled to Lubbock for the Southwest champion- ships boasting a regular season record of 10-2, having lost only to A M. Though Texas Tech had the home field advantage and an unblemished record in regular season, the UT men were able to defeat them in a close but high-scoring 14-12 point game. Texas met A M in the championship game, a situation they had been in for three years past but had won only once in 1987. This time they lacked both a coach and home field, and faced a team which had defeated them twice in reg- ular season. With only about 20 players present, the Texas team lacked a crit- ical number of substitutes. " A lot of members stayed home, frankly because no one thought we had a chance . . . we ' d been in the finals game for the past two years and lost, " Oliveri said. As the game drew to a close, UT found itself down by two goals with only one and a half minutes remaining. Af- ter Chris Kohl, mechanical engineer- ing junior, brought the team within one point, Texas had its prayers an- swered as John Mireur, zoology sen- ior, tied the game in the final 13 sec- onds. Sudden death overtime was soon ended when Curran scored the win- ning goal, providing UT with its sec- ond championship in 14 years. " It was a dream come true. At the beginning of the season we had to decide to do the best we could, coach or no coach, and our best was winning the cham- pionship, " Fung said. After losing one of the best lacrosse coaches in the entire Southwest, un- der whom the team had won one championship, the Texas Lacrosse Team was able to win one for them- selves. By doing the unthinkable, the team proved that achievements were limited only by aspirations.

Walbridge The abundance of professional organizations on campus gave students ample opportunities to get a taste of their chosen careers before they graduated into the real world. These groups took full advantage of Austin ' s resources. Guest speakers were brought to meetings in order to open new doors for the students. During any given week, one could hear a host of speakers from bankers to lawyers and from advertising executives to doctors. Austin businesses did all they could to encourage the careers of future professional leaders. From the military bases that allowed UT ROTC companies to use their facilities to local business that recruited students for entry- level jobs, Austin took a vested interest in UT. edited by Dena Rene Karber 314 Professionals photo by Charles T.

They produced results. UAA was an organization of ap- proximately 300 members that was successful " at having the highest per- centage of job placement in the busi- ness school, " Vice President Cindy Comeaux, accounting senior, said. In fact, UAA had a resume book, but decided to get rid of it " because so many people got placed in jobs, " Comeaux said. Before the members found them- selves in the job market, they had the opportunity to go on field trips to Dallas, San Antonio and Houston, as well as Austin, to visit accounting firms and companies. They visited the " Big 6 " accounting firms in Dal- las, and in Houston, they visited with Exxon and NCNB. " It exposes us to a lot of facts about the industry that we don ' t get in our classroom. We get introduced to industry accounting and not just public accounting, " Adam Matsil, ac- counting junior, said. UAA had several committees to help plan social functions, marketing plans and community service proj- ects. Service efforts included work- ing with nursing homes and Project Outreach, an Austin-wide communi- ty service day in which UAA helped Not Just Another Number MAKING CONTACTS: Cindy Comeaux, ac- counting senior, mingles with Price- Waterhouse recruiters.

The association also worked with the Business Council in sponsoring Bill Grant, CEO of Ernst and Young, as the keynote speaker of Business Week. They also worked with Beta Alpha Psi, the honor society for ac- counting majors. With 1 1 officers to run the or- ganization, it was easy to understand their success. The officer program had five executive level officers and five junior level officers, so that un- derclassmen could have a chance at running the group. This created a carry-over effect so that when half the officers graduated, the other half would already have experience in leadership. According to Comeaux, members of UAA can " get a lot of experience and insight into the type of account- ing firms that are available to them. " I think they see the value of their degree, and I think that they also appreciate what they are doing here in school, " Comeaux said.

However, the primary objective of the AFROTC program was not the tail- oring of appearance, but the devel- opment of less readily visible traits. Detachment 825, Air Force ROTC, continued its tradition of training future leaders for the armed forces. Upon graduation, each AFROTC cadet received a commis- sion as a second lieutenant and was required to serve at least four years on active duty. AFROTC strove to instill respon- sibility and a sense of community in its members. Service projects, such as working with the Air Force Asso- ciation ' s Austin chapter, enhanced officer training, since good leaders must be conscious of the effects their actions have on others. " We ' re very excited about devel- oping a national UT AFROTC alum- ni association. The organization will work with the Ex-Students ' Associ- ation and be staffed by cadets who reside in the Austin area and grad- uated before 1974. One of their first projects will be the establishment of a scholarship fund for AFROTC EYES RIGHT: New wing commander Eu- gene Capone, aerospace engineering senior, leads the wing during the fall pass in review. photo by Patrick Humphries.

SALUTE: Members of the hon- or guard present the colors at the drill parade. photo by Patrick Humphries cadets, " Cadet Group Commander, Timothy Cunningham, mechanical engineering senior, said. Members of the AFROTC Color Guard presented the national stand- ard at football games, in parades and other public ceremonies. The leadership roles these cadets would someday fill conferred sub- stantial duties and obligations, along with the privileges of rank. " This year we are reorganizing the detachment along the lines of an ac- tual Air Force Wing, in our case the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing at Bergstrom AFB. Since we now have more than 170 cadets in the unit, we have the manpower to do it, " Cunningham said. " After the reorganization, cadets who graduate from UT will be able to work within a staff and have first- hand knowledge of how the organ- ization works. " The cadre also tried to provide insight into the operational realities of life in the military. Last Decem- ber, Col. John Couch came to Austin to lecture to students on flight test- ing of the B-2, the controversial and highly advanced aircraft popularly known as the Stealth bomber. Couch was a test pilot and vice commander of the B-2 Combined Test Force. " In flight test, there are a number of things which can kill you dead. Because of the extensive work in sim- ulators before the first flight, we had a high degree of confidence in the aircraft, " Couch said. By providing speakers like Couch and organizing the detachment to re- flect the responsibilities cadets will face in their careers, AFROTC progressed toward their goal of grad- uating the best-prepared officers in the Air Force.

We want to expose peo- ple to the many opportunities that can come out of following a career in chemical engineering, " Susan Tay- lor, chemical engineering senior, said. The American Institute of Chem- ical Engineers strove to enlarge their membership and open doors to the field of chemical engineering. Mem- bers were able to attend meetings and take field trips in order to ex- pand their knowledge of their cho- sen career. The organization held six meet- ings during the course of the year. Guest speakers from various plants attended to answer questions and provide information that could help members in their search for a -job after graduation. One advantage the group had was the ability to work closely with re- searchers, professionals and plant representatives. " They can tell you things you might not learn in a classroom. You always pick up helpful hints and bits of information that will be useful in the future, " Taylor said. In addition to their other activ- ities, AIChE took its members on field trips to chemical plants across Texas, such as Dow in Freeport. " The trips really benefit me. You see what it ' s like to work in a plant. You realize that chemical engineer- ing is more than what you read in schoolbooks, " Jennifer Swanson, chemical engineering senior, said. The highlight of the year was " McKetta ' s Picnic, " which was held in April. John McKetta, professor of chemical engineering, hosted a cook- out at his home on Lake Austin. Food, softball and water games took students ' minds off upcoming final exams. AIChE provided its members with the knowledge to survive in the real world after graduation, and at the same time, gave them the chance to relax and take a rest from the de- mands of schoolwork. " The experience you get to ob- serve on the field trips and all the information you get out of the meet- ings does you a world of good. But, you also get a lot out of being with people who share your same career goals, " Swanson said. Dena Karber o American Institute of Chemical Engineers 319 , " CD " TO CO CO CD ' co CO co Q_ 05 Q. Q. CO CO _Q_ With the ever-increasing enroll- ment in the business school, students often could not establish an identity. Many, however, discovered an or- ganization where they found broth- erhood and a group of people with common interests. Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed business fraternity, functioned to improve members ' personal and professional ability through educational experi- ences and association with others. " Alpha Kappa Psi represents a commitment to brotherhood, profes- sionalism, leadership and integrity, " President Niloufar Khatiblou, ac- counting senior, said. Interaction with the Austin busi- ness community exposed the mem- bers to the work setting. The pro- gram ADVANCE (A Day Visiting a Nearby Corporate Executive) al- lowed members to spend a day at corporations such as Deloitte Has- kins Sells and Touche Ross Co. In the fall semester, AK Psi opened the program to all business students, and it was well-received judging from the number of students who participated in rush activities. Each week two members attended a luncheon meeting with the South Austin Rotary Club. Meeting with the executives allowed members to Getting Down to Business improve their communication skills and to establish contacts. " The executives serve as good role models. Even though they are suc- cessful businessmen, they schedule time to devote to community ser- vice, " Corresponding Secretary Natalie Kagan, pre-med manage- ment junior, said. Group visits to offices were anoth- er way to experience a business set- ting. Members visited many Austin offices and also made two out-of- town trips. In October, they went to Dallas and visited Anderson Consult- ing and the General Dynamic Plant. The trip to Houston in February in- cluded office visits to Continental Airlines and Ogilvy and Mather. " We spent OU weekend in Dallas and toured the General Dynamic Plant, " Jeff Schoeneberg, market- ing international business senior, said. " It was interesting to watch the fighter planes made from start to fin- ish and to see the computer tech- nology involved in the process. " AK Psi also invited speakers from corporations and local businesses, as well as professors and alumni. The group, along with other UT business fraternities, sponsored an executive reception both semesters. Executives were invited to meet the members in casual question-and-answer settings. Service was an important part of the fraternity. AK Psi worked with Extend-A-Care both semesters. They also participated in a Halloween food drive for Austin food banks. " We got great response from our food drive, " Robert Weston, mar- ke ' ing junior, said. " I believe it ' s im- portant to take responsibility for the community, and our fraternity ' s pri- ority should be to give something back to the community. " As the first professional fraternity in business, AK Psi was also the first business fraternity on the UT cam- pus. The Iota Chapter proudly cel- ebrated its 75th anniversary in 1990. In March, they invited the alumni to a party in honor of the occasion. Alpha Kappa Psi offered its mem- bers education about business skills and opportunities and worked with the Austin community to provide service and gain experience. The fra- ternity also served as a foundation for friendship and developing inter- personal skills. " The skills I ' ve learned will un- doubtedly serve a value to me in my career, " Amy Sparks, marketingjun- ior, said. " But I cannot put a value on the friendships I have gained. " Laura C.

In 1989, the group had the privilege of hosting the Southern Re- gional Conference in downtown Aus- tin. The annual event was held for regional members to get more fa- miliar with marketing strategies and business information. The conference was sponsored by several major Austin corporations. " We seem to win outstanding busi- ness organization every year. Re- cruiters like it; they take care of us, " AMA president Deborah Houska, marketing junior, said. The group attracted Rick Villalobos of the U.S. Department of Commerce, who lec- tured on export marketing, and Randall Dillard of the Texas High- way Department, who spoke on the DINNER CONVERSATION: Paul Varner, marketing junior, Christine Symmonds, ac- counting senior, and Linda Buccino, market- ing senior, share a table at the AMA mixer. photo by Patrick Humphries.

The conference accommodated members from approximately 30 ma- jor universities throughout the coun- try. The organization ' s more than 450 members joined the group for many reasons besides just the yearly con- ference; for example, the chance to serve the Austin community. AMA hosted service projects such as the annual " Hoop It Up " basketball tournament benefiting the Special Olympics and a mentor program with the Austin Independent School District. AMA joined with the Austin Chamber of Commerce in an eco- nomic development program, called " Buy Greater Austin, " that encour- aged Austinites to keep revenue within the city. AMA ' s various committees gave students actual experience in sales, marketing, research and advertising. Members were also listed in a resume book compiled by the group, had an opportunity to develop leadership skills and enjoyed the social and pro- fessional advantages of being in such a large organization. " There ' s more to it than just the resume; it ' s a chance to meet people at functions and get personal skills, " Dai Nguyen, marketing junior, said. Yvonne Vale, marketing senior, said, " Its a chance to learn about yourself and get an idea of what you want to be. " With such enthusiasm from members it was not surprising that, as Houska said, " AMA has es- tablished itself as probably the most outstanding business organization in the business school.

" This was the phrase coined for the 1990 American Society of Civil En- gineers canoe race. But this was no ordinary canoe race. These canoes were made of a material not usually associated with boats; they were made of cement, and their names were the Agrigator and the U.S.S. Leadbetter. The two canoes were raced at the annual meeting of the group ' s Texas chapter. Thirteen Texas schools and four other schools from Mexico and Oklahoma also competed for a chance to advance to the national competition in Buffalo, N.Y. " We ' d like to win this year and go to nationals. It ' s a lot of hard work and a great learning experience, " Tammy Sturdivant, architectural en- gineering senior, said. Four canoes were actually made, and the best two were raced. The vessels were 18.5 feet long and weighed 125 pounds. The canoes were painted with an airbrushed de- sign. A total of about 1500 hours were spent on construction and de- sign. The canoes started with a fiber- glass mold. Rubber strips were placed every foot on the shell to off- set a sheet of wire-mesh steel. Rub- ber strips were then placed on top of the steel. The concrete was next. Ordinary concrete was placed around the shell, the rubber strips were removed and the voids were filled by sight. The canoe was aired for two weeks under careful super- vision. The humidity was kept above 85 percent and the temperature was kept above 60 degrees. After the canoe was aired, a special aircraft cable was welded to the top edge ' of the steel wire mesh. The canoe was then sanded with succes- sively finer and finer grained sand paper. The last step in preparation was primarily for looks. Primer and paint were applied along with airbrush de- signs. The canoes were then clear coated. A special teflon coating was added to reduce skim drag, and the canoes were ready to race. The concrete canoe races were originally regional events, until Mas- ter Builders, a concrete manufactur- er, sponsored the event and brought it to the national level. Master Builders transported winning canoes and crews of each region to Buffalo for the national competition. There were three divisions of races men ' s, women ' s and co-ed. The overall score to determine the win- ner was derived from a number of events. First, the actual races were given points. The design was con- veyed in a 10-page report which in- cluded construction technique, crew training and cost. Points were also accumulated from canoe quality, fin- ish and overall appearance. Another portion of the points came from an oral presentation that summarized the written report. The whole project was an impor- tant endeavor to the organization. " It took a lot of time, dedication and hard work, but there was a lot of fun added in, " William Lace, civil en- gineering junior, said.

We are a spirit, service and social organization, " Jennifer Quaife, organizational communica- tion senior, said. The Anchorettes, who were the Navy ROTC sweet- hearts, kept themselves busy with a wide variety of activities. The organization kicked off the year with a raft trip down the Comal River, near New Braunfels. The fall semester ' s events also included a re- union for NROTC alumni during Homecoming weekend, a Halloween party with the naval unit, and trick- or-treating for charity. The fall term was concluded with their annual Christmas party and " ceremonial, " where the pledges are initiated as active members. Also in December, the Anchorettes partic- ipated in " Mail Call. " " We sent out a batch of Christmas cards which were then dispersed to members of all the armed services, " Nicole Dodge, ad- vertising sophomore, said. The pur- pose of Mail Call was to send some Christmas cheer to servicemen who might not be able to spend Christmas at home. The Anchorettes also revised the point system for active membership. In the past, a pledge was required to earn a total of 1,100 points. In 1989, the total was lowered in order to keep pledges from leaving the group before the reached their point quota. " By lowering the number of points required, we hope to keep the pledges interested in becoming an Anchorette, and prevent the actives from thinking they ' have ' to do things just to stay in the group, " Quaife said. Support was given to NROTC through TGIF parties, participation in co-ed intramurals and bi-monthly " Cookie Calls. " The Cookie Calls were held in the Fantail, the unit ' s study area, and refreshments were provided by Anchorette members. Additionally, when the midshipmen drilled or took physical fitness tests, the Anchorettes turned out to offer their encouragement. All in all, the 50-member strong organization proved that they were capable of providing the support the NROTC needed. James P. O ' Shea HI 324 Anchorettes Groups Unite for POW Week Leading up to Veteran ' s Day, Ar- nold Air Society and Angel Flight jointly sponsored POW MIA Awareness Week. This week-long se- ries of events was designed to com- memorate those still missing from the Vietnam conflict and increase awareness of the service that those missing rendered to their country. During the week, members staffed lange Fatal the unit ' s foot member- :. sol fonts t6, and out to offer diet were . -- a table on the West Mall to dissem- inate information on the plight of families of those taken prisoner or missing in action. Angel Flight sent a yearly contribution to the League of Families to support their activities on behalf of surviving members of pris- oners ' families. In 1989, in addition to holding the traditional candlelight vigil, mem- bers obtained signatures from sev- eral hundred students on two peti- tions. One, addressed to the governments of the Southeast Asian nations, urged a more active pro- gram for repatriation of the remains of servicemen from the Vietnam con- flict. The second petition was direct- ed to the United States Postal Ser- vice, in support of a proposed POW MIA commemorative stamp. The most visible event held was the 24-hour run around the campus. Members took turns running through campus while carrying the POW MIA flag. Students ran in 30- minute shifts over varying courses to increase the visibility of the project to the student body. " We had students from Angel Flight, Air Force ROTC, the Prae- torian Guard and Army Rangers. Some students ran as many as 6 times, " Angel Flight Commander Kristen Anderson, organizational communications senior, said. For many members, the highl ight of the week was a speech by retired Air Force Col. John Stavas. A former reconnaissance pilot, he was shot down over North Vietnam on the morning of Sunday, Sept. 16, 1967. That morning was the start of a Five- year prison camp ordeal during which his weight dropped from 190 Ibs to 105 Ibs upon his release. Col. Stavas lectured on his daily experiences from the start of his mis- sion through capture and captivity, describing the " tap code " which pris- oners used to communicate through the walls, since they were forbidden to speak. He said that the prisoners were later able to hold " movie nights " when they would be permit- ted to speak. On these nights, if one man thought he could remember the plot of a film well enough, he would " become " the film, describing loca- tions, action and dialogue to his fel- low prisoners. The renewed commu- nication proved essential to maintaining morale in a very difficult environment. Angel Flight and Arnold Air So- ciety continued their tradition of promoting awareness of the service that men and women in the armed forces rendered their country. " We ' re committed to this over the long term. POW MIA is an ongoing national service project for our or- ganizations, " Anderson said. James P.

The three-year-old ABSA counted more than 100 members, 1 1 officers and a full calendar of social, volun- teer and business events. According to Executive Vice Pres- ident Irene Moy, international busi- ness junior, the group was formed in the fall of 1987 to meet a need for professional organizations for Asians. " We try to familiarize Asian students with the business world, give them chances to pursue their leadership potential through group offices and committees and let them know about educational opportuni- ties, " she said. The group ' s 1989-90 programs in- cluded speakers from Merrill-Lynch Inc. and Wang Laboratories, and an end-of-semester banquet at which a $10,000 scholarship was presented to an Asian business major. Money for the award was collected through ABSA fundraisers including a flower sale. In November, the group operated a water station at the nine-mile mark of the Texas Marathon. The group also held mixers, a bowling night at the Texas Union and a spring picnic. President William Lee, economics senior, said he believes the Asian presence in the US is growing. " Asians in general are finally begin- . i STUDENTS ning to establish themselves in the mainstream of American business, " he said. " Through organizations such as the ABSA, leadership skills and personal development can be en- couraged, and the stereotypes under which Asians have worked for a long time can be broken.

Group Promotes Cultural Unity CC_ cc At a school as large as the Uni- versity of Texas at Austin, one could find many students with different cultural backgrounds. But it was Beta Alpha Phi, an international frater- nity, which provided a way to unite these varied cultures. Beta Alpha Phi was an honorary organization, with a membership ex- ceeding 700. " We are open to all students, not just international stu- dents, " Venkatesh Iyer, graduate student in civil engineering, said. " Even students with majors such as international business or internation- al studies are welcome to join. " The most important event that Beta Alpha Phi was associated with was the awarding of scholarships to deserving members. Along with the honor of receiving the scholarship, the recipient got an added bonus. If the winner of the scholarship was a foreign student, his or her tuition for the next semester would be lowered to that of a Texas resident. Although Beta Alpha Phi had a large membership, Iyer felt that more could be done to open the eyes of the University to the wide range of cultures on campus. " I feel that more should be offered to the student body in terms of classes and inter- national organizations. Awareness is the key. If more forms of cultural appreciation are open, I think stu- dents will naturally seek out what is put before them. " Raya Stepanian, accounting sen- ior, agreed. " I don ' t think any stu- dent should be required to take in- ternational classes, but if they know COME JOIN US: Partha Saha, graduate stu- dent in physics, and Anders Nylander, prebusiness freshman, are welcomed into Beta Alpha Phi by Secretary Raya Stepanian, grad- uate student in accounting. photo by Charles Walbridge FROM ROW: Erik David Atkinson.

Both Iyer and Stepanian felt that over time, the University would fully meet the needs of all international students. " It ' s inevitable, " Iyer said. " The University will gradually change to cope with increasing in- ternational student enrollment. It will take time, but it will happen. " Dena Karber 328 Beta Alpha Phi : ' .,- .

" What a person gets out of be- ing a member will stay with them as long as they are pursuing a career in accounting. " Beta Alpha Psi, the honor society for accounting majors, restricted its membership to graduate students and upperclassmen with a GPA of 3.0 or better. Pledges were required to accumulate points in order to be- come an active member by partic- ipating in service projects, attending meetings and volunteering as tutors to lower-division business students. The organization provided its members with ample opportunities to expand their knowledge of the world of accounting. Guest speakers - many of whom were represent- atives of major accounting firms - spoke to the group on a weekly basis. The fall semester proved to be the busiest time of the year for Beta Al- pha Psi. The accounting recruiting season was at its peak. Also, a ban- quet was held with Coach Jody Con- radt as a guest speaker. The biggest events for the group were the field trips to " Big 6 " firms. Members traveled to Dallas, San An- tonio and Houston to visit firms such as Arthur Andersen and Ernst Young. " One of the main purposes of the field trips is to meet recruiters from accounting firms, " Suzanne Spruell, accounting senior, said. " The trips are a way to acquaint ac- counting firms with students and let students see what the business world is really like, " Schoonmaker said. The exposure to these firms was pay- ing off - - most UT graduates went on to work at one of the Big 6 firms. There was more to Beta Alpha Psi than field trips and meetings. The organization provided community service as well. For two years, Beta Alpha Psi had participated in VITA - Voluntary Income Tax Assistance - in which group members volun- teered their time to help low-income, foreign or disabled taxpayers file their returns. Schoonmaker felt that being a member of Beta Alpha Psi was a def- inite advantage to any accounting student. " You get so much out of the group. It provides a way to meet in- fluential people in accounting, and you stay on top of current events and trends in accounting. And, most im- portantly, you learn how to handle yourself and how to conduct yourself in the business world, " he said. Dena Karber C D o o c Beta Alpha Psi 329 O O O CO : o GO O GO In the spring of 1989, the seeds of a new organization were planted. Beta Chi, or Blacks in Communica- tion, was established from Chi Nu, an organization for minorities in com- munication. Their first year proved to be a successful one. The change in the constitution was in response to the changing mem- bership of the group. Because the active members were predominately black, the organization believed that Beta Chi would meet the needs of its members more successfully. " Now that we have started the new organization, the members are very attentive and supportive. That makes it easier to keep this going, " Pres- ident Deidre Strong, public relations senior, said. Beta Chi served as a liaison be- tween the dean of the College of Communication and the students in the college. The goal of the organ- ization was to unify the members and set examples of professionalism. The members helped each other choose courses for the spring semester. Beta Chi met bi-weekly and at- tracted approximately 30 members. Several speakers, including one from the advertising firm GSD M, attend- ed meetings. They adopted a third grade class at Blackshear Elementary School and provided community ser- vice to radio station KAZI. In the spring they sold doughnuts as a fun- draising project and volunteered for the Travis County 1990 census. They Attented an invitational vol- leyball tournament and advanced to the championship game. " I think Beta Chi will open doors for me and a future in communi- cations, " Tamara Gant, braodcast journalism junior, said. Laura C. Trost SPREADING THE NEWS: Queen E.

" We realize that corporate culture is changing and companies are mak- ing an effort to make changes, " said President John Thompson, graduate student in marketing and finance. Panelists were asked detailed ques- tions by the students concerning gen- eral company plans to accommodate the changing times, marketing plans, and methods of incorporating the new demographics into the system. " The panel discussion was very successful because not only did we get to learn all about company pol- icies, but more about the internal structures, company climates and the people involved, " Cheryl Cooper, graduate student in finance, said. " We really don ' t have an opportu- nity to speak with these represent- atives other than in an interview set- ting. It was a really big plus. " The atmosphere helped students to see similarities between the UT business school and corporate Amer- ica. " In the MBA environment, these are the actual types of people that you ' ll be working with. It ' s really like a small company, " said Thompson. " If you think about it ... it ' s a good representation of the real world. " With a new day dawning in the business world, the members of the association prepared themselves for successful futures. All felt they were witnessing positive changes in cor- porate America. Stephan Cheek, graduate student in industrial marketing, said, " Corporations are recognizing that people are from different back- grounds . . . and they are changing their strategies to accommodate the number of women and minorities en- tering the workplace. That is a pos- itive signal.

Echo I was a support group for minorities in the College of Natural Sciences and was a program that was to be re- peated throughout the University. Echo I was created in 1986 by a group of students who wanted " to promote education in elementary schools and try to get them inter- ested in education and continue into college, " President Adrian Castillo, physics sophomore, said. Echo I meant " to provide a group for mi- norities to feel comfortable and not be intimidated by the University (atmosphere), " he said. The first task was accomplished by participating in Adopt-A-School with elementary schools in Austin. The group helped judge science fair proj- ects and plan parties for children who could not afford to bring their own supplies or who had little pa- rental involvement. " It gives them a sense of Mexican- Americans that are already in col- lege. It gives them a role model to go by, " Castillo said. Echo I also sponsored a Chemistry Circus, along with Dow Chemical Company, which paid for a bus for the young students to come to cam- pus. They participated in the pro- gram, which " gave them an incentive to do well in school, " he said. After the program, the most improved el- ementary student in reading and the most improved student in math were given Chemistry Circus t-shirts for doing well in school. Echo I was funded by the College of Natural Sciences, but also had fundraisers such as a resume book that brought in professionals from IBM and other companies and gave the students tips on resumes and in- terviewing skills. The books were sold to IBM, Texas Instruments, Pharmaco and medical schools. Speakers included minority faculty in natural sciences or UT adminis- trators who tried " to get a concept of what problems or adversity they had being a minority on their way to get- ting an education or as faculty, " Cas- tillo said. The group was small, but one couldn ' t tell from the extent of their functions. " All our energy goes into doing the activities, that we can ' t re- cruit, " Vice President Debora Duran, biology junior, said. " Echo I was created to echo out to other UT schools (about the club), " she said. " We want to increase mem- bership and then go to other schools.

" Richard Cuellar 332 Echo I The Future ' s So Bright The University Entrepreneurial Society was founded in October of 1983 by a group of highly motivated student entrepreneurs. Like many entrepreneurs, they were dissatisfied with the status quo. They felt that there was not an organization on campus to meet the needs of many of the more enterprising students. These young men and women brought similarly motivated students together to form a group that would stimulate new ideas, collaborate on current business ventures and learn i concept -can ' t re- Debora d wdtotdioouito how to put their plans into action. Continuing in the founders ' tra- dition, UEA invited people involved in entrepreneurship to speak at bi- weekly meetings throughout the year. Not only did they have well- known entrepreneurs such as Gary Hoover, founder of the Bookstop, lecture, but they also had represent- atives from banks, venture capital firms, government agencies and law offices speak on ways that they were involved in and could assist entre- preneurs in every stage of business growth. " The meetings are an informal ex- tension of business classes. The meet- ings provide a chance to learn from hands-on experience rather than the- oretical guesswork in books, " Darrell Pennington, master ' s candidate in business administration, said. The practical knowledge gained from these presentations and discussions allowed the group members to im- plement their own entrepreneurial ventures more effectively. Through continued programming tailored to the interests of the Uni- versity ' s most ambitious students, UEA hoped to fuel the enthusiasm of those interested in entrepreneurship and to create an environment con- ducive to successful small business creation. " UEA exposes people to the new innovators in business. Only movers and shakers are involved not peo- ple who want to push papers around a desk. We ' re not the people who want to work for General Motors, we ' re the people who want to form the next General Motors, " Michael Wolzson, master ' s candidate of busi- ness administration, said.

The first Christ- mas Trunk Show and Bazaar, spon- sored by the UT Fashion Group, had all that and much more. Seven student designers displayed their goods to UT students ready for holiday browsing and buying. Party breads, chips and dips, as well as oth- er " goodies, " and the sound of Christmas carols throughout the Pi Phi house helped to create a festive social event, not to mention a com- mercial success. " We wanted this to be for students to sell their ideas and creations, " Treasurer Pam Chism, fashion mer- chandising senior, said. " But we also wanted to keep prices low in order to target the student market. " Many of the student designers said their fashion creations started as a hobby, but they now hoped to make a career from them. Krista Vacek, fashion de- sign business sophomore, said that her designs " just started as play. I started making things for myself and then people began to ask me to make things for them. " Although sales were an important part of the event, the main goal was to support the designers themselves and the UT Fashion Group as a whole. The Christmas Trunk Sale was just one example demonstrating the in- creased activity in 1989 of the Fash- ion Group headed by President Cathi Riggs. The group grew to more than 50 active members as compared to ten in 1988, and " all it took was some hard work and encouragement, " Ch- ism said. Adrienne I.

" Any self- respecting Texan with a television set and an awareness for health mat- ters knew these words well. Thanks to the Health Professions Council, in cooperation with the Natural Sci- ences Council and the Distinguished Speakers Series, Duke came to the University on Feb. 20, 1990. The Health Professions Council, a group composed of representatives from several health profession or- ganizations, worked towards getting speakers such as Duke and organ- izing seminars and panel discussions. " The goal of the Council is to get all of the individual groups together to achieve goals that the single groups would otherwise not be able to accomplish, " Vice-chairman Zeke Silva, biology pre-med junior, said. " The smaller groups need a voice in the University. Being represented in the HPC helps us act as a liaison with other clubs to establish what ' s going on on campus, " Victor Rodriguez, biology pre-med senior, said. Kara Froelich, biology psychology junior, agreed with Rodriguez. Her group, Women in Medicine, just started in 1989, and the Council " helped our group with ideas and how to get speakers. We got the knowledge of other groups for our own.

" I love being around students. They each have their own similarities and differences, subculture and spir- it, activities and focus, " said Duke during his day at UT. His love of the students and people in general poured genuinely from the tall, friendly Texan. Between chatting with students and telling stories, he gave pieces of advice to all future health professionals, especially doc- tors. " The obsessive, compulsive, con- trolling and addictive personality of a doctor is great for the patients, but not the doctor. Work addiction can destroy you like any other addiction. There is nothing more rewarding than good work, it winds my spring, but it is important to find a middle of the road, to balance work and fam- ily, " Duke said. Duke ' s presentation in the evening was as informative and entertaining as the talk he gave at a reception earlier in the day. He talked about the tragedy of trauma and its effects on young people. He even gave his version of " stress management " : al- ways laugh at yourself. Duke ' s mes- sages touched many people who saw him. " He gave personal attention to each person he could. He was in- teresting and people-oriented. See- ing him so dedicated to his work and others was inspiring to many, " Amy Myoung, biology pre-med senior, said.

" The Hispanic Business Stu- dents Association proved this to be true. Membership in the organiza- tion had increased steadily since its founding 14 years ago, and the group witnessed a 70 percent in- crease from 1989 to 1990. The HBSA attributed its growth to recruitment, which began in the summer with a phone-a-thon. " We try to get in touch with all the stu- dents in the business school. We lit- erally sit down and call people to let them know about our group and tell them what they can get out of joining up, " PR Director Robert Ledesma, accounting senior, said. The HBSA ' s hard work didn ' t stop with recruiting new members. The group also kept itself busy by clean- ing up the stadium after football games, manning tables for AT T customer sign-up and participating in various charities. HBSA worked closely with the Jer- ry McClifton Center, a center for emotionally disturbed children. Members took the children bowling and donated all proceeds from a 5K. fun run to the center. " Our organization is for all ma- jors, not just business. Our main goal is to raise professional awareness among the Hispanic students on cam- pus, " president Rosa Mancha, ac- counting senior, said. The group provided its 240 members with work- shops and guest speakers to prepare them for the future. Workshop top- ics included dressing-for-success, ca- reer and family management and LOTUS training. All of HBSA ' s efforts paid off. During the spring, the group was honored with the Outstanding Pro- fessionals Education Association Award. The HBSA was chosen by the UT Leadership Board over all other groups on campus. " It ' s really great to be named, especially after all the stuff we had to go through, " Mancha said. A winner was chosen after an application and report of the group ' s activities was submitted to the Leadership Board. The final step was an interview between Mancha, Ledesma and board members. " This award reflects on all the hard work of the members we all earned it, " Ledesma said. Ledesma gave credit to recruit- ment for the group ' s success. " The different marketing techniques we used have given us a lot of expo- sure, " he said. " We offer such a va- riety of events that people can fit in where they need to.

New faces and the stress of choosing a major that dic- tated the future added to this stress. The Honors Business Association, though, helped its students over- come these problems. The HBA was the student organ- ization of the Honors Business Pro- gram. The program was a three-year plan, beginning with the sophomore year, in which students took a total of 30 hours of honors business classes that went towards their MBA. These students attended those honors class- es together, seeing the same faces each semester. " You really get to know people in your class, getting both good friends and a good environment, " Kristin Weber, accounting junior, said. The association itself, outside of the program, grouped all of the class- es together, allowing interactions during all three years. " It unites all three classes, gaining connections with upperclassmen and professors, " Amanda Innis, interna- tional business sophomore, said. " You get some contact with people both in front and behind you. You can share what you have done and find out what is to come, " Craig Paradee, accounting junior, said. Not only did the association act as a social group, but it also acted as a way students could get connections and start networking. Each year the group sent a resume book represent- ing all of the students to more than 80 companies. The group also sponsored resume and interview workshops and speak- ers. Texas Supreme Court Judge Lloyd Doggett was the keynote speaker for the 25th anniversary of the program in the fall. Outside of the resume book and the happy hours, there was some- thing special about the organization. " The group stands apart. You get friends that are lifelong and see who are the business leaders of the fu- ture, " President Barclay Anthony, fi- nance senior, said. " It ' s a great group of people.

" Little Children, Big Poison, " the slide show and program presented to first and second grade students dur- ing March, warned children of the danger of mistaking medicine for candy and the harmful substances " Charlie the Climber, " a mischievi- ous young boy, could find in house- hold cabinets. The children were told never to persuade their younger brothers and sisters to take medicine by telling them it is candy. Some KE members brought poten- tially poisonous items to show to the children. " When I went to the schools, " said Service Chairman Ka- ren West, pharmacy senior, " I took a bag full of things like hairspray, co- logne and vitamins. This stuff is just around the house, but it can really be harmful if a little kid gets into it. " As another service to Austin chil- dren, KE members hit the basketball court. In part of a Special Olympics program, these pharmacy students helped mentally and physically hand- icapped children perfect their bas- ketball skills and keep score. Perhaps the most important aspect of the event was the cheers and hugs given in support of the children. Even with all the service projects, KE managed to cater to the colle- giate needs of its members. To de- velop friendships, the group held mixers for pledges and active mem- bers and co-sponsored a formal with Kappa Psi, a pharmacy fraternity, given in April at the Hyatt Hotel. By working to meet the diverse needs in Austin, KE members achieved unity. " The whole idea of Kappa Epsilon is to promote women in pharmacy, and through all the ac- tivities we did, we got to know each other while getting to know our pro- fession, " Vice President Sophie Alaniz, pharmacy senior, said. Adrienne Jones 338 Kappa Epsilon props, itr rabm-Tode- I ,r!MH- KE members . taA ; ' I ' d ' The Right Prescription For You Promoting professionalism, the Longhorn Pharmaceutical Associa- tion, the UT chapter of the Academy of Students of Pharmacy, sponsored a variety of events to expose mem- bers to the pharmacy field. Aspiring pharmacists attended the Industrial Exposition on Feb. 27 and spoke with representatives from eight major pharmaceutical compa- nies, including DuPont and Mari- on Merrell Dow. The event enabled the students to pick up tips on in- terviewing and job opportunities. Not only did the organization create connections for students, but it also encouraged unity. " LPhA really serves to unify the college as a whole. It is the umbrella organization -- almost everyone in the college is a member, " Lance King, pharmacy junior, said. And they had fun too. Pharmacy Phollies, a talent show, gave students a chance to show their creative side and take a break from studies. To let their parents know just how tough studies could be, mock lectures were given in March for parents to attend as part of Parent ' s Day activities. The group also raised money with a little contribution from Bevo. The fundraiser, Bevo Bingo, was held on a field marked off like a Texas-sized bingo card. LPhA sold squares on the field, and the Silver Spurs led Bevo up and down the " bingo card, " while players anxiously awaited him to drop an actual cow chip in their square. " We all waited three hours for Bevo to drop the chip, but it was a lot of fun and the event raised over $800, " President-elect Kim Larson, pharmacy senior, said. The winner won round-trip plane tickets to any- where in the United States. LPhA members traveled to Wash- ington, D.C., during Spring Break to attend the annual Academy of Stu- dents of Pharmacy Convention. Out of 74 chapters that attended, the University ' s chapter has had the larg- est delegation each year and won honors. " The chapter has always finished in the top three for the Outstanding Chapter Award, " said Larson. Pres- ident John Rogers, pharmacy senior, advanced to the national round of the Patient Counseling Competition held during the convention after winning the local round. LPhA had a tu.i and productive year and represented a dynamic or- ganization on campus. The chapter succeeded in better preparing phar- macy students for the careers ahead of them. Adrienne I.

UTMA, a business organization dedicated to introducing students to the world of management and avail- able career opportunities, filled its schedule with events ranging from guest speakers and social mixers to field trips and community service work. The main goal of UTMA was to open the doors of management to all interested students, not just business majors. " We have members from all dif- ferent majors, as all that ' s required to join is an interest in management. There is management in every field of work and everyone is involved in it in some way, so our association can be beneficial to everyone in order to be informed on what to expect after college, " Vice-President Lisa Cochran, management junior, said. A prime example of UTMA ' s ef- forts to help its members was ap- parent in a resume book the organ- ization established during the year. Members were given the chance to submit their resumes, which would be reviewed by recruiting companies. " Unlike the Business Placement Of- fice, the book gives equal exposure to all majors, " spring President Steve Maeker, management senior, said. Although the resume book was for all members of the association, cer- tain participants received special rec- ognition. Members who earned a set number of points throughout the se- mester were placed in the Executive Level of the book. Those in the Ex- ecutive Level appeared at the begin- ning of the book and were given let- ters of recommendation. Points were earned by attendance at meetings, social mixers and field trips and par- ticipation in community service proj- ects. UTMA also received compliments on its involvement in the Childrens ' Halloween Gruseum, located at Northcross Mall. Members dressed up in costume and led children through a haunted house. Fall Pres- ident Stephanie Nemec, manage- ment marketing senior, had no trouble recruiting members for the event. " Our group wanted to make a dif- ference and do a good job. Those who worked at the Gruseum were really enthusiastic, and did it because they wanted to, not just because they were trying to earn pledge points, " Nemec said. Finally, UTMA sponsored G.E.D. tutorials for city employees and aid- ing Big Brothers Big Sisters at its spring Bowl-a-thon, capping off a busy and productive year.

Mu Iota Epsilon, an organization of minority future educators, acted in this truth. The group realized that problems simply do not solve them- selves. They reached out into the Austin community and attempted to decrease the dropout rates. " It ' s a top priority of ours to help prevent dropouts with different pro- grams and by bringing in speakers, " President Homer Rivera, secondary education mathematics concentra- tion senior, said. The group organized a mentor program open to anyone interested in working with students at risk for dropping out of school. The group also heard speakers addressing the dropout problem. In addition to visiting other schools, members invited high school organizations to visit the University during Education Week. " We ' re providing a chance for high school students in groups like Future Teachers of America to visit UT and ask questions about the ed- ucation program here, " Publicity Chair Melanie McQueen, secondary education mathematics concen- traton senior, said. Mu Iota Epsilon carried through with so many programs through be- ing an organized, motivated group.

Founded in 1972, the National Chicano Health Organization was es- tablished to provide Hispanic allied health professions, pre-medical and pre-dental students with academic in- formation, peer support and cultural camaraderie. " Anyone is welcome to join our club, regardless of race or major, " Secretary Frank Martinez, biolo- gy pre-med senior, said. " The whole purpose of NCHO is to provide each other with support. " This goal was accomplished academically by pro- viding an " academic support system " in which upperclass members were willing to tutor students in classes they had already taken. Another effort in helping one an- other was the establishment of a test file. The purpose was to accumulate old tests from members so future stu- dents would be able to study from them.

The support did not end at the academic level. " We are one big hap- py family. We all help each other, " Mexican American Leadership Council representative Melissa Guer- ra, natural sciences senior, said. Sev- eral social events were held through- out the year to allow the members to get to know each other better. Club members developed friendships as well. Martinez recalls one social event sponsored by NCHO where they surprised a member. " We were eating at the Spaghetti Warehouse. Since it was Thelma Trevino ' s birth- day, we had the waiters bring out a cake and we all sang to her. " Committee Chairperson Mike Sarabia, biology pre-med sopho- more, remembered another event. " There was one day we decided to play against each other in softball since we had to forfeit the intramural game that was scheduled. We had a lot of fun together. We even had wrestling matches at the plate to keep each other from scoring! " The members of NCHO were not only given information on their cho- sen career fields, but were also given academic and emotional support as well. As Sarabia said, " I guess I ' ve stayed with NCHO so long because we are a cool bunch of people to hang out with. " Sandra Guerra 342 National Chicano Health Organization NSAE Adopts Local School A dozen children play in an el- ementary school cafeteria, running about merrily or fidgeting impatient- ly at tables. The UT students look a little out of place on the child-sized furniture, their legs crammed under low tables or their frames engulfing kiddie chairs. But this was a typical afternoon scene for members of the National Society of Architectural Engineers during the school year. As part of their mentor program for Adopt-A- School, members volunteered three times a week at Widen Elementary in South Austin to help in the elemen- tary ' s after-school homework hall, or to act as mentors to an " adopted " little brother or sister. The mentor program targeted children who were seen as potential future dropouts. The homework hall was for students whom teachers des- ignated as needing extra help in a subject. Widen Assistant Principal Lynda Home explained the role of the men- tor. " We assign people one on one to serve as role models to our students. They meet with the children on cam- pus, eat lunch with them sometimes, visit with them, " she said. " Or they spend time just talking to them about how they feel about things and show- ing them that the world does have a bright side. " At one table, John Roy, architec- tural engineering senior, and Tom- my Meserole, architectural engineer- ing junior, talked to Renaldo, Roy ' s " little brother. " " Austin has one of the worst drop- out rates in the state, " Meserole said. " When these kids see these college students it gives them an incentive to stay in school . " The participating members spent several hours in a mentor training class to prepare for their responsi- bilities. They learned such things as " how to meet the kids for the first time, how to talk to them and keep them interested in talking and how to meet their parents, " Roy said. Nearby, NSAE President Michael Eraser, architectural engineering senior, played tabletop football with a group of children. " We try to pro- mote fellowship among architectural engineering students as kind of an oasis away from all the other stu- dents, " he said, " and to show ar- chitectural engineers involved in the community. " This wasn ' t the first time the group had volunteered at Widen. In spring 1989 members spent their Saturdays constructing a playscape for the school playground. The Wid- en Elementary PTA donated the ma- terials, and the group provided the labor. Home was enthusiastic at the suc- cess of the program. " We feel very lucky to have them with us as men- tors, " she said. " And the kids eagerly await their visits. It ' s like having San- ta Glaus once a week. " Martha A.

" The Dean (of the College of Business) came down and lent his support. All the deans (from Busi- ness) did. It really helps us as a group to have this kind of support from the University, " Stansell said. " When corporations contact the Business Placement Office specifical- ly looking for, say, black sophomore or junior marketing majors, their re- quest is given to us, since we maintain a resume book. We ' ll send the re- sumes that match their request di- rectly to the company, " Price said. This year NSBL made the final payment into their $10,000 scholar- ship fund, the interest from which will provide an $800 scholarship starting in the fall of 1991, and larg- er amounts in future years. National Student Business League continued to provide valuable sup- port and development services to their members. With the group ' s help, members expected they would continue to achieve even greater suc- cess at the University and in their professional lives. James P.

They all shared a common bond as members of Omicron Nu. Omicron Nu was the honor society for home economics majors. Al- though the group consisted of only 30 members, it was a prestigious or- ganization. " We restrict membership to upperclassmen and graduate stu- dents, " Virginia Wimberley, assis- tant professor of home economics, said. Potential members had to meet high GPA standards and be nom- inated for membership by professors. Because of the diversity of the group, it was hard to schedule meet- ings and fundraisers. " Since all home economics majors have different schedules, it was difficult to find one time we could all get together, " Pres- ident Christina Roeschel, interior de- sign senior, said. The big event for Omicron Nu was the initiation ceremony in the spring. " One of the best things about being in Omicron Nu was being able to pull things together. The other officers and I really worked hard to get the initiation ceremony together. We weren ' t even sure there would be one, but everything fell into place at the last minute. " Roeschel said. Roeschel said that she hoped Om- icron Nu would one day be big enough to take an active role in phi- lanthropy and community service. " Omicron Nu unifies home econom- ic majors, but we also need expan- sion. I hope that membership con- tinues to grow so we can become more involved in the University and the community around us. " Dena Karber Omicron Nu 345 1 DC DC As the speaker approached the po- dium, the noise in the room suddenly gave way to an eerie silence. Here was a distinguished and respected man of letters and learning a law- yer. For those interested in pursuing that career, UT offered its students the pre-law organization Phi Alpha Delta. " We are a pre-law chapter of the world ' s largest law fraternity, " Pres- ident Gate Sanders, finance pre-law junior, said. " The UT chapter has received recognition as an outstand- ing pre-law chapter among 93 chap- ters nationwide. " Facing the Facts Affiliated with the UT law chap- ter, the organization was dedicated to educating pre-law students in sev- eral facets of law. With educational projects such as free LSAT diagnos- tic testing and mock trials, the or- ganization also held weekly meetings with such speakers as Representative Henry Cuellar and Phi Alpha Delta alumnus Judge Bob Gammage of the Texas Court of Appeals. " Phi Alpha Delta gives undergrad- uates the opportunity to learn val- uable information about law school and the law profession before they make their final decision to pursue the study of law, " Sanders said. " I ' m interested in a legal career, so I thought it would be a good idea to meet people with the same interests and at the same time take advantage of guest speakers and information the group provides, " Danelle Draehn, English senior, said. In addition to its primary goal of educating pre-law students, Phi Al- pha Delta activities also included fundraisers, social mixers, joint proj- ects with the UT Law School and philanthropy opportunities. In short, Phi Alpha Delta members gained not only an understanding about law careers but also friends and good times. " We offer the perfect mix - - a professional organization in a frater- nal atmosphere, " Sanders said.

Involvement in the business world always included giving something to the community upon which business thrived. This point was well taken by Phi Beta Chi, the University ' s busi- ness fraternity for women. The group reached beyond what mem- bers and pledges could receive from the community to explore what they could give. Though Phi Beta Chi provided many opportunities to listen to speakers, visit businesses and develop friendships, members and pledges also were able to serve Austin. They gained feelings of accomplishment through activities such as visiting Exploring the Boundaries Brackenridge Childrens ' Hospital and participating in the Capitol Area Food Bank. While working at the food bank, Mindy Thompson, market- ing finance junior said, " I do think about the less fortunate families. I feel good helping them out. This is a different aspect of it (community ser- vice), getting to organize the food and putting it into the boxes. " Phi Beta Chi did not neglect its members ' needs for food and fun, though. The fraternity hosted a number of social events such as pledge parties, a dinner and formal each semester and happy hours. There was, of course, much busi- ness as usual to benefit Phi Beta Chi members and pledges. The group took field trips to visit businesses such as Xerox Corporation and Dow Chemical in Houston, USAA Insur- ance and Sea World in San Antonio and GSD M advertising agency in Austin, which provided opportuni- ties for experience and contacts for future jobs. " We got firsthand experience on how a firm works and whether or not you would like to work in that en- vironment, " Historian Praba Krishnaraj, finance senior, said. President Cherri Allen, marketing senior, said, " Phi Beta Chi is centered around how women can succeed in business.

Phi Chi Theta emphasized service as well as social activites. The fra- ternity participated in the state ' s Adopt-a-Highway program. Their biggest service project of the year, though, dealt with trying to start a Students Against Drunk Driving chapter on campus. A fundraiser was held to raise money for the SADD chapter. The fraternity was contacted by a mar- keting agency, based in New York City, which was sponsoring a contest between 25 college organizations across the country. The organization that raised the most money received $10,000 for their campus student ac- tivities fund. The agency sent all the necessary information and materials needed to run the fundraiser. The method for raising the money involved three Pontiac Grand Ams. The object of the contest was to guess how many CDs would fit into a Grand Am. In order to make a guess, a student would be asked to donate any amount of money, with the proceeds going to SADD. The person coming closest to the actual number won a CD player and 25 CDs. Second place won a cassette player and 25 cas- settes, and third place won 25 cas- settes and a subcription to Spin mag- azine. For others, the most exciting prizes were given away in a drawing. The two remaining Grand Ams were awarded in a random draw. Local businesses also participated in the fundraiser, and KLBJ broadcasted live from the event. All money raised was donated to SADD. " It ' s something we have worked hard at and it ' s something that we care about. It ' s amazing how we ' ve pulled together as a fraternity and we are making it work, " Kristen Smith, marketing senior, said. Phi Chi Theta ' s involvement in this philanthropy project came from the hopes of stirring up interest in a local SADD chapter. " I hope that it will lead to creating a SADD chapter on campus, " Catherine Maxwell, ac- counting sophomore, said. " It ' s a shame that a university as big as UT can ' t have enough interest to form a local chapter, especially with all the drinking and partying that goes on. " Marcia Strickland " D O DO CO CO Phi Chi Theta 349 CD CO " Pi Sigma Pi has expanded beyond our belief, " Steve DeLeon, one of the original founders of the organ- ization, said. Originally created in 1973, Pi Sigma Pi was an organi- zation designed to help minority en- gineers on campus. The group ' s prime functions were to increase minority representation at the University and to alleviate the " culture shock " experienced by many new minority students upon admission to a culturally diverse cam- pus. By recruiting minority students and giving them a common organ- ization, the founders hoped to enable them to compete more effectively. One of the more visible projects sponsored by Pi Sigma Pi was the annual Job Fair, held in the spring semester for the past 10 years. In Spring 1990, the fair had represent- atives from 65 companies attending. Most of the companies were in the engineering field; however, there were some companies whose relation to the engineering field were not readily apparent, such as the CIA. The company representatives talked with interested students and received many resumes for intern- ship or summer employment. One Hewlett-Packard representative esti- mated that his company received more than 40 resumes, of which al- most one-fourth were considered " outstanding. " Many students were well prepared for the Fair, having come armed with several resumes to FRONT ROW: Brenda Yvette Munoz, Bernie Estavillo. Ma- ria Del Carmen Garrido, Rosemarie Chapa, Johnny R.

" There was a great turnout ... a lot of interaction between students and the representatives, " Jose Tapia, aerospace engineering sophomore and officer in the Society for His- panic Engineers, said. The Job Fair also brought students and their work back to UT. One of the representatives for Hewlett- Packard graduated from the Univer- sity in 1975. DeLeon was also pres- ent, representing another company. These people were helping other UT students join the corporate world. UT research also aided some of the companies at the fair. " System-3 gasoline is a specially formulated gas- oline . . . part of the additive package was developed here (at) our local re- search facility on North Lamar, " Rich Dominguez, a representative for Texaco, said. Pi Sigma Pi started out as a mi- nority advancement group. Its activ- ities, however, benefited the Univer- sity as a whole by bringing alumni back to aid current students in their quest for a career. Mark Scott 350 Pi Sigma Pi Fraternity lark et lij ' !n Uinar, " Many students needed a place to go to get away from the University ' s thousands of people, a place to be noticed and feel welcome, and just a chance to make a difference. The UT Psychology Club provid- ed the opportunity to do just that. The club welcomed members from freshmen to graduate students, as well as university faculty, and mem- bership was extended to anyone, not just psychology majors. The club was simply a place where people with a common interest, psychology, could get together, have a good time and share their ideas. The club held bi-monthly meet- ings, which were usually informal with occasional guest speakers. Meet- ings were sometimes the basis for analysis of certain aspects of human behavior. One of the topics discussed was the dating habits of UT students. The Escape Club It was a biological look at the mating patterns in young adults. Volunteer work also was on the agenda for the club. They took the Junior Helping Hand to the UT vs. Texas Tech football game. " I really enjoyed taking the kids to the game. We really didn ' t go to watch the game, but to watch the kids watch the game, " Robert Blu Vela, psychol- ogy junior, said. Prior to the game, the group had a weiner roast at Pease Park. When the game was over, the excitement con- tinued when the children got to meet the football team. On another oc- casion, the club took the children to the skating rink. Another charitable organization, the Austin State Mental Hospital, welcomed the club to their facility. The members got to see the hospital and some of its programs in action, and they were told about career and volunteer oportunities. For the most part, the visit was a chance for the psychology majors of the club to see others with common career goals at work making them happen. With the overcrowded campus and all of the hustle and bustle of the University, the club offered an at- mosphere and feeling of belonging for people with shared interests. " It is easy to get lost at UT, but the Psychology Club is a place to meet and be with people that have some- thing in common psychology, " David Klein, psychology senior, said.

" Even after I ' d been through years of graduate school and a master ' s degree, under- graduate grades were the most im- portant factor in admission to law school. " Walt Shelton, an environmental lawyer with the firm of Baker and Botts Attorneys, was one of many speakers from the legal field whom the Pre-Law Association hosted. " We realize people come to our meetings to get sideline activities while keeping up with their school work, " James Parsons, govern- ment pre-law junior, said. To that end, the group sponsored speakers at almost every meeting this year. Guests ranged from students and directors in the UT and Uni- versity of Houston law schools to the chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, Tom Phillips. Topics includ- ed legal ethics, LSAT preparation, and law school admissions. Shelton spoke on environmental law, a growing legal specialization. The members of his audience on March 21 listened attentively as he explained the regulatory and toxic tort divisions of environmental law and the specializations within the field, which require separate attor- neys for air pollution, waste man- agement, water pollution and under- ground storage tank violations. He also answered questions on his preparation for a legal career and about Texas law schools. " The UT law school is well thought of on the state and national level, " he said. " A social science and liberal arts back- ground helped me, but study what- ever you like to study as an under- graduate. That ' s my advice. " Group president Julie Wright, gov- ernment pre-law senior, saw the role of the Pre-Law Association as " educating students on the legal field and how to get into law schools. " In the association ' s office in the Texas Union, undergraduate students could find information on law school admissions, requirements and schol- arships. In addition, a $15 per year fee entitled group members to a $125 discount on the Stanley H. Kap- lan LSAT preparation course. Membership also offered students chances to pursue leadership oppor- tunities through the group ' s four ex- ecutive offices and various commit- tees. Members could participate in local and state mock court compe- titions. The group also hosted social mixers for its approximately 200 members. " We hope that through the speak- ers and other activities, our organ- ization will help students become more informed and comfortable with the legal field and the educational outlets along the way, " Wright said Martha A.

We had our fair share of white paint flicks all over our faces and clothes, " Anna Gee, biology pre-optometry senior, said. Gee referred to the Pre- Optometry Club ' s Project Reach Out service activity on March 3, in which members applied a fresh coat of paint to the walls of the commons area of Austin High School. " We had a lot of fun painting and mixing the paint, " said Gee, the club ' s presi- dent. " It was a really productive day. We finished it all in an hour and a half. " Member turnout was high -- the six people present represented 40 percent of the club ' s membership. Club membership had quintupled since Gee and Treasurer Victor Rodriguez, biology pre-optometry senior, started the club in the fall of 1987. " We were interested in op- tometry and we were disappointed that only one or two of UT ' s 50,000 students were being accepted to op- tometry school, " Rodriguez said. " We wanted to get the word out that optometry is out there, and to get students involved. " " It was a rough beginning, " Gee said. " But the Health Professions Of- fice helped spread the word, and we ' ve had a steady flow of students since then. " With many areas of eyecare, the differences among specialists are not always easy to discern. " Optometrists make corrective lenses, " Gee said. " The field is smaller than dentistry or medicine, but the preparation is similar. " Gee explained that a pre- optometry student usually obtained an undergraduate degree in a math or science, and then went on to four more years of optometry school, which involved two years of concen- trated sciences and two years of hands-on training. There were about 20 schools in the nation offering an " O.D. " de- gree, and the University of Houston had the only optometry school in Texas. UH optometry school stu- dents and faculty constituted the ma- jority of the club ' s guest speakers, and once each semester the club sponsored a trip to the school to ac- quaint members with the faculty, curriculum and laboratories. " There ' s a growing demand for optometrists, " said Gee. " It ' s a good field to get into, and we want to help UT students do that. " Martha A. Salsman 354 Pre-Optometry Club PRSSA Reaches for the Stars Congratulations were in order for the 1989-90 Alan Scott Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America, as they recruited nearly three times their membership, their newsletter (1988-89) received na- tional and district awards and they were honored with hosting the Southwest District Conference. President Sun Lim, public rela- tions senior, said, " The members showed great enthusiasm and real- ized that PRSSA was not just another UT club, but a pre-professional or- ganization. " Ron Anderson, assistant professor of journalism from Washington State University, became the new faculty advisor and inspired many PR stu- dents to prepare for the professional world by getting involved in PRSSA. " An important aspect of PR is working with people. PRSSA pro- vides exposure to working with groups and prepares you for the fu- ture, " Anderson said. For the first time, an induction ceremony was held to recognize and honor the chapter ' s members. Dis- tinguished guests Alan Scott, profes- sor emeritus, and Public Relations Society of America President Jerry Dalton, APR, enlightened the assem- bled group with brief speeches re- garding the history of the chapter and the three ingredients to PR pro- fessionalism: the ability to lead, to follow and to participate in public service. " Many PR professionals who end up working for PR firms are asked to devote time to non-profit organiza- tions. Instead of donating money, they donate their time and talent, " said Anderson. Membership certificates were handed out as well as congratulations from the faculty and professional ad- visors. Members and guests then re- cited the pledge taken from the PR- SSA Declaration of Principles. Later, Lim said, " I hope this cer- emony will become an annual event. I think it is important to recognize the members and remind them that becoming a part of PRSSA is a major step in career development. Practical experience was also a necessary job requirement, and that was what the Alan Scott Chapter got when they hosted the Southwest Dis- trict Conference. Members enjoyed active involvement in coordinating the chapter ' s main event of the year while they got experience working with professionals. The program was titled " Reach for the Stars " to in- spire PRSSA students to set high ed- ucational and career goals. By hosting the conference and winning awards in the public rela- tions field, PRSSA set an example for its members to set their goals high and achieve them. Debra A.

At the party, the 25 members celebrated by giving each other gifts and singing their fraternity chorale. On November 27, the local chap- ter of the national music organiza- tion had decorated the Christmas tree that stood in the main hall of the Music Building. Susan Meyer, music education senior, said, " This is one of our most visible projects. " Another project for the fraternity was music therapy. Sigma Alpha Iota was the only fraternity that was a direct member of the National Music Therapy Association. Members worked at a home for emotionally disturbed children, heightening the children ' s awareness of music as well as raising their self-esteem. Treas- urer Donna Burks, music education senior, said, " It gives them the un- divided attention of an adult and a chance to express themselves. " Although music therapy was the group ' s major endeavor, SAI also sponsored other service activities. They collected food for the Battered Women ' s Association and gave con- certs at nursing homes. SAI also was responsible for sev- eral activities promoting music at the University. The group held recep- tions for concerts, and, with other band organizations, staged the State Solo and Ensemble Contest. These activities helped attract potential stu- dents to the University. " It gives stu- dents a chance to see us UT stu- dents helping them, " Burks said. Several actives were music teach- ers; each had several students to whom they gave lessons. Lastly, they gave out more than $800 in schol- arships to deserving students. Meyer concluded by saying that SAI was a group of sisters who served the Department of Music as well as the Austin community. Members found that SAI offered support for their artistic endeavors in what was usually a solitary pursuit of excel- lence.

SPE was founded in the 1930s as a branch of the American Society of Mining Engineers. Fifteen years ago they achieved autonomy, and chose Richardson, Texas, as their head- quarters. Since then, the group had established chapters in London, Rome, Indonesia, China and Saudi Arabia. The organization took pride in their chapter. " UT has one of the best petroleum engineering pro- grams in the world. The majority of faculty members from schools such as Stanford and Harvard attained their doctorate degrees at UT, " Steen said. The University chapter had a membership of more than 100 graduates and undergraduates. The group was devoted to the dissemi- nation of professional information in the petroleum engineering field. Meetings, which were conducted according to Robert ' s Rules of Or- der, were one of the main priorities of SPE. Guest speakers were invited to attend the meetings and talk to members about what to expect after graduation. Speakers included Artie Skove, president-elect of the SPE in- ternational chapter and British Pe- troleum executive. " One of the most prominent speakers we had was Railroad Com- missioner John Sharp, " President Lin Espey, petroleum engineering senior, said. " He was the author of the first tax break on enhanced oil recovery projects in the history of Texas. He told us how the oil in- dustry is attempting to promote the gas industry by securing markets in California, " Espey said. The organization also sponsored a " chicken seminar " in the fall. The seminar was an informal recruitment at which representatives from major oil companies provided lunch for all group members. It allowed recruit- ers to meet potential employees in a relaxed atmosphere. Steen stressed that the fall seminar was a big part of the group ' s curriculum. " All petro- leum engineer majors work at least three summers before they graduate. Internships are crucial to the petro- leum engineer, " he said. Although the Society of Petroleum Engineers wasn ' t involved in many philanthropy or fundraising projects, they kept themselves busy with re- cruitment and preparing its mem- bers for the professional world.

This major paved the way for an ex- citing and rewarding career in the oil business. Being a landman required accurate and detailed work, as well as good interpersonal and communica- tion skills. When the price of oil fell almost $30 a barrel in 1986, the number of students in petroleum land manage- ment fell also. Accordingly, the as- sociation suffered a decline in mem- bership. However, " now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. Com- panies are hiring more landmen every year, and with the enrollment numbers continually on a downturn, jobs are plentiful, " David Squire, pe- troleum land management finance junior, said. The organization had tried to spread the word that the oil industry was on its way back, and anyone with an interest in the oil business was welcome to attend the meetings to further their knowledge. Guest speakers gave the group the details of what was going on in the real world and what was in store for grad- uates. During the spring, the group held a luncheon for major oil companies. Representatives of corporations such as Phillips Petroleum, Conaco and the American Association of Petro- leum Land Management attended. The purpose of the luncheon was to bring these companies together and provide scholarships for petroleum land management majors. There was no job recruitment involved, only fi- nancial incentives to spark interest in the various companies represented. Bigger was not always better, as this organization proved. " The small size of the group is a definite ad- vantage. It allowed me to make con- tacts with major oil companies. There ' s a lot of one-on-one talks with representatives, so they ask you the questions that might not come up in a formal interview and they get to know you better as a person, " Trey Charless, petroleum land manage- ment marketing senior, said. The group ' s members showed that you can only get out of an organization what you put into it. Dena Karber AnAf month in ik U aneinactiw " " The 358 Student Landman ' s Association An Apple for Student Teachers Education majors concerned about the future of their career could find support on the UT campus within the Texas Student Education Asso- ciation. The TSEA provided a forum for issue-minded students. The professional organization con- sisted of education majors and stu- dents seeking a teaching certificate. The 40-plus member club met twice a month in the fall semester, but be- came inactive in the spring. The association was a student chapter of the Texas State Teachers Association and the National Edu- cation Association. The NEA was one of the largest and oldest edu- cational unions, and TSEA lobbied with the association on state and na- tional levels. The group supported candidates and bills beneficial to the education field. " Many students also join because TSEA offers student teachers a li- ability insurance. We receive the benefits of teachers already in the field, such as publications, " Rhonda Oberender, education senior, said. As a service to education students, TSEA sponsored seminars covering topics such as interviewing skills, al- ternative learning styles and the de- velopment of a philosophy of edu- cation. Speakers included a TSTA state consultant, an Austin recruiter and speakers from within the edu- cation college. A pizza social also was held. " TSEA hopes to prepare future educators for participation in the statewide teaching organization, to allow them to better themselves pro- fessionally, and to further education as a profession, " President Sally Searles, education senior, said.

Dieringer, who was the first president of Upsilon Tau, said that the group ' s purpose was to pro- mote excellence in all fields of en- gineering. Upsilon Tau, a co-ed professional fraternity, was formed in the spring of 1989. Dieringer was contacted by Theta Tau, the national chapter, and was asked to form a local chapter. The fraternity consisted of 27 members, including 15 pledges for the fall semester. The club adopted a policy of accepting mainly sopho- mores, juniors and seniors " We want the people who are committed Group Strives for Charter to engineering, " Dieringer said. Pledges, like all group members, were required to participate in the SURE Walk program and assist at the Capitol Area Food Bank. Pledges earned points by working at these service projects, and also by setting up meetings with guest speakers. Af- ter the pledges had earned their re- quired points, they still were not el- igible to become full actives until they had received a unanimous vote from the current actives. Dieringer stressed that the club was not a service organization. Al- though they participated in Project Reachout, SURE Walk and the food bank, Upsilon Tau ' s primary focus was on engineering. Plans for the group included involvement in En- gineering Week, and tours of local buildings, such as the Arboretum, in order to view them from an engi- neering aspect. Also, the group planned to become active in recruit- ing high school students to the College of Engineering. The new organization had high hopes. Upsilon Tau hoped to be rec- ognized as a local chapter by the 1990-91 school year. " Everybody works really hard. It ' s surprising how close all of us have become after one semester, " Brenda Berry, civil engineering junior, said. " To use the old cliche, so far so good.

Women In Com- munications, Inc. mastered this task. With a solid reputation as a na- tional, professional and student or- ganization, WICI offered members first consideration in many intern- ships, professional-student match- ups, scholarships, guest speakers at every meeting and even out-of-town career conferences. At the February career conference in Dallas, Mona Isam Kiblawi, com- munication sophomore, got answers to questions such as, " How do I be- gin a job search? " and " What does an interviewer really expect? " " It turned me around 100 per- cent, " Kiblawi said. " It was a good opportunity for different ideas from which I could form my own.... We learned you have to target your ideas, " Jennifer Finstein, journalism junior, said of the Dallas conference. WICI members had a lot of dif- fering targets for their ideas, though, and it was President Christine Richey ' s goal to serve these various interests. " I try to be a source of informa- tion, " said Richey, " whether it be campus information ... or what goes on in the real world. " To wrap up just what WICI was all about, Richey, journalism junior, said, " WICI is providing women with the opportunity to discover what ' s out there.

The Greek community also provided students with a sense of social responsibility. Each sorority and fraternity at the University sponsored its own individual philanthropy project, as well as participating in such activities involving all Greek organizations. Beneficiaries were as close to home as the state school on Guadalupe or as far away as a village in Africa. Locally, Greeks addressed issues from cleaning up Austin highways to raising awareness of alcohol abuse. Members could often be seen on strategic corners of campus soliciting spare change for some good cause. Through their volunteerism, Greeks expanded their own horizons while helping to improve the quality of life in Austin. edited by Nadine Lois Johnson and Laura Jean Stevens 362 Greeks -. photo by George Bridges Greeks 363 anhellenic Feeds the Homeless Turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce . . . " urn, " it ' s beginning to sound like a really good Thanksgiv- ing dinner. A really good dinner for hundreds of people that normally would not have one, thanks to the Panhellenic Council and Interfrater- nity Council ' s first annual " Feed the Homeless " campaign. In the past, Panhellenic had helped the city with similar projects. In 1989 the group decided to ap- proach the service work from a dif- ferent angle, so they did the whole project on their own. " We felt it would be better if we could do the whole thing instead of just supplying simple manpower for the city, " Co- Chairwoman Laura Jean Kerwin, textile clothing sophomore, said. Obviously, the council was right. Although they had calculated and expected about 300 people, they ended up feeding more than 650 at Waterloo Park on Nov. 22. Every fraternity and sorority do- nated not only food and money to the project, but time as well. A few members of each fraternity and so- rority came out to help serve and spend time with the people. " It was really great to see all those people there, " President Michelle Earl, government junior, said. " Everyone had a really good time. " The Panhellenic Council and IFC did not end their help for the citizens of Austin with Thanksgiving. They also held a canned food and clothing drive just in time for Christmas.

They delivered the items to needy families. " We don ' t want the people to think we do just one thing and then forget about them, " Kerwin said. " It ' s all an on-going project. " In the years to come, members said, they hoped to continue their new tradition. Because of the great success of the project there was little they wanted to change. " The only change we will make will be to try and accomodate more people because we will be expecting a big turnout, " Kerwin said. With the help of the Panhellenic Council, the IFC and the fraternity and sorority members, hundreds of people had a much better Thanks- giving than they had ever expected. With the beginnning of the new proj- ect the fraternity and sorority mem- bers once again demonstrated that they did care and can make a dif- ference in the lives of some of Aus- tin s citizens.

Ronald McDonald House sup- ported and accommodated families of seriously ill children who had to be hospitalized for long periods of time. Alpha Delta Pi ' s donations in 1990 helped build a new Ronald McDonald House at 403 E. 15th St. The money donated to the pro- gram came from the fees paid by more than 100 entrants in the Poker Tournament. Alpha Delta Pi ' s phi- lanthropy committee divided the en- trants into groups of six to play five card stud and five card draw. Each player received a t-shirt and prize worth at least $25 for entering the tournament. At the end of the tournament the 12 players with the most money in chips played a last round of poker for grand prizes. Local Austin businesses and other patrons donated prizes like televisions, VCRs and a framed Nagel print. There were also lim- ousine rides, weekend stays at hotels, dinners for two and gift certificates. In addition, the sorority itself re- ceived several campus awards. They were named the Outstanding Organ- ization in the Spirit and Social cat- egory by the UT Leadership Board and the Order of Omega honored the group for Outstanding Campus Involvement. Anderson said her sorority did its best to stay involved in campus or- ganizations. " We really try to en- courage our members, especially pledges, about how important lead- ership positions are at the Univer- sity. " With active members in organiza- tions like Student Involvement Com- mittees, Orange Jackets, UT Cheer- leaders, Texas Union committees, the Students ' Association and Mortar Board, ADPi was one of the most involved sororities on campus. The group also was involved with Diamond Decisions, an ongoing al- cohol awareness program within the chapter that focused on education, especially about the dangers of social drinking. ADPi was at its best, however, helping others. " Participation and interest in the Poker Tournament increases every year, and it has be- come one of our most important ac- tivities, " Philanthropic Chairman Kristen Anderson, finance junior, said.

The UT AEIIs were com- mended by the fraternity ' s national organization as No. 1 among all AEII chapters. As the only AEII group in Texas, members attributed their success to strong ties to the national organi- zation, a special bond between mem- bers and alumni support. " Alumni helped a lot. We could not survive without the support of our alumni, " Rush Captain David Shaw, advertis- ing junior, said. Abiding by the rules of dry rush, Alpha Epsilon Pi doubled their pledge class in the fall to 38, making the group the largest Jewish frater- nity and one of the strongest among national chapters. " Dry rush helped us get a look at our pledges, while at the same time they could get a look at us - there ' s no hard sell pressure and no sur- prises, " Social Chairman Derrick Lewitton, psychol ogy junior, said. EYE ON THE BALL: Mike Skigen, prebusi- ness sophomore, takes the ball down the field for AEPi. photo by George Bridges The national organization of Al- pha Epsilon Pi was so impressed with the UT chapter ' s successes that they considered moving the fraternity ' s highly competitive interchapter baseball tournament from Atlanta to Austin. Members of AEII agreed that this recognition would be a great honor. More important than honors and recognition, however, was the whole attitude behind the success of the chapter. " AEII has given me a core of I friends and a place to start at UT, " Michael Skigen, prebusiness sopho-? more and out of state student, said.

The women of Al- pha Gamma Delta enjoyed serving the community and learning about themselves. The sorority ' s calendar was full, with philanthropic activities ranging from teaching children reading skills to aiding the homeless in Austin. Members participated in the Reading Is Fundamental program, signing up for different days at different area schools to help children with reading skills.

The sorority ' s most interesting event was their highly publicized Teeter-Tot- A-Thon. The members teeter-tottered in front of the house for 24 hours to raise money for re- search on juvenile diabetes. " The first year we ever did this we thought it was going to be the most dreadful thing, but we actually had fun, " President Renee Hainebach, marketing senior said. Alpha Gamma Delta also took part in a dinner for the homeless during the Christmas holidays. Philanthropic activities were not the only objective of this sorority, however. Through their united ef- forts in helping the community, the women became very close. Events such as lock-ins at the sorority house strengthened their bond. " It really builds a sisterhood bond, you really feel like sisters, " Hainebach said. Working for charity and building friendships were very important to the members of Alpha Gamma Del- ta. One advantage that members agreed upon was that being in a so- rority helped them communicate better with other individuals. " I could walk up to any person on this campus and talk to them, " Denise McCue, English pre-law junior, said. Alpha Gamma Delta provided for its members the perfect mix of ser- vice, friendship and fun. The scho- lastic achievements of this sorority proved that despite the numerous ac- tivities, member ' s never lost sight of the fact that academics was the main priority. The women of this sorority not only helped the community but learned about themselves and 1 the real world around them. Alpha Gamma Delta proved to be a sorority that helped its members be more than just average students at the University. Robert J.

The women assembled in front of the State Capitol to join in the " From All Walks of Life " walk-a- thon benefiting AIDS research and education. " This walk was an opportunity to help those who may be too ill to help themselves. This disease is a mystery to all of us, and none of us are im- mune to its effects. This was a chance for us to make a difference in the lives of our contemporaries, " Nicole Nathan, history sophomore, said. AIDS was a serious disease in Travis County, with more than 4,500 county residents having been tested positive for the virus that is believed to cause AIDS.

The UT chapter of AKA took this goal a step farther, extending services to women and children from Austin all the way to Zimbabwe. In Austin, AKAs participated in Winn Elementary School ' s Extend- A-Care --an after-school day care program for the children of working parents. The AKAs took the chil- dren to see a South African art ex- hibit in the art gallery in the Texas Union, and watched the children during PTA meetings. The project in Zimbabwe was geared toward women, children and their health and hygiene. Members raised $200 during Parents ' Week- end for a fund to build a water well. During Founders ' Week, money for a $1000 scholarship was raised at the fashion show. The sorority raised $500, and the Ex-Students ' Association matched the amount. They awarded the scholarship to an Austin-area young woman who planned to attend UT. " When I came to UT, AKA placed a lasting impression on me through their service to the community as well as ser- vice on campus, " ReShonda Tate, broadcast journalism junior, said. " We realize where we ' ve come from and we want to give back to the com- munity, " she said. Jamie Huff said she pledged for the service aspect of the sorority. " It makes me happy that I can help others that are less fortunate than myself, " Huff, en- gineering junior, said. " And I ' m happy to know there are other young ladies who share this interest and goal.

Alpha Phi was a fraction of their total involve- ment at the University. Members did not just concentrate their total effort on the sorority but put their energy towards other in- terests on campus. Individual inter- ests included everything from the waterski team to honor societies. Involvement was the key motiva- tion in the lives of each member. Alpha Phi was represented in many campus organizations, including the Students ' Association, the Fine Arts Council and the Co-op Board. In ad- dition to student government, mem- bers were also represented in UT traditions groups, from the Orange Jackets to Bevo ' s Babes. Professional groups lik e Phi Chi Theta business fraternity and Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Med Society boasted Alpha Phi members as well. " For me to see one of my friends go out and try to achieve something allowed me to encourage her, and in the same way she encouraged me to go out and join, " Bethi Lee, psy- chology pre-med senior, said. Many members found that the so- rority was a good source for recruit- ing people for other groups. It didn ' t matter whether you were a Greek or just an active student. " There isn ' t necessarily a distinction made wheth- er you ' re a Greek or not because everyone is working together on a common goal, " Angie Pence, ac- counting senior, said. Alpha Phi was proud of the achievements each member made in- dividually and presented its members with various honors and awards. Jen- ny Nolan and Anneke Schroen were honored as outstanding students. Leslie Lace, Charla Long and An- neke Schroen received the Presiden- tial Leadership Award. Alpha Phi proved that sorority life was more then one big party. Robert].

" $3 I I, i G iving Back To The Community The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity pulled out all the stops for their annual Founder ' s Week. The 1989 celebration marked the 30th year of the fraternity ' s existence at the University. Founder ' s Week was a traditional week of activities set aside to honor the founders of the fraternity and to reaffirm and rededicate the mem- bers to the group ' s goals and pri- orities. President Vincent Wesley, busi- ness senior, said that the 1989 Founder ' s Week was geared toward getting the community more in- volved. " We are making an effort to be- come more involved in campus-wide activities, " Wesley said. A few of the Alphas ' week-long activities included a " Gong show " , a non-Greek step show and a forum entitled " Talk Back to Black Greeks. " The actual program con- sisted of a panel of representatives from other black fraternities, soror- ities and student organizations. Scott Stanford, business sopho- more and master of ceremonies for the forum, said that the idea was not an original one and had been done before. However, Stanford said, " It is one of those things that needs to be a dialogue. " The forum was designed to get feedback on what Greek organiza- tions should be doing to better their community. The program also al- lowed groups on campus to get to- gether and discuss mutual concerns. " Yes, there are problems, " said Stanford. " But even one problem re- solved represents an accomplish- ment. " Wesley said that the Alphas ' main goal for the Founder ' s Week was to give back to the community. Through the medium of the panel, the issues raised served to increase awareness of the problems faced by black greeks and strengthen ties to the community.

Their efforts helped ALA earn more than $15,000 from the Clean Air Bike Ride held in Harris Branch on April 7. More than 600 riders from professionals to novices partic- ipated in the event. The women of Alpha Xi Delta be- gan their work by collecting dona- tions from area businesses for prizes which were designated for the par- ticipants. The total prizes collected were valued at more than $6,000. " Collecting prizes was a lot of hard work, but it was worth it because it is a good cause, " Kim Lusher, com- munication junior, said. The week before the event, the girls were busy painting signs, baking cookies and distributing posters for the bike ride. At the actual Bike-a-Thon itself, 105 members of Alpha Xi Delta were involved with the minor yet impor- tant details of the bike ride. They spent the day out at Harris Branch registering the bikers who wanted to ride, serving refreshments, directing traffic and cleaning up when every- one else had gone. " It was a great opportunity for our sorority to help out such a noble or- ganization as the ALA, " Keri Gau- tier, advertising junior, said. The chapter also worked closely with their alumnae in co-sponsoring the ALA Healthy Mother Healthy Baby Contest in February. The pro- gram was held at Highland Mall, where mothers and their babies re- ceived brochures about the benefits of non-smoking. " We felt that the event was suc- cessful and we ' re glad we could help them raise so much more money than last year, " Lusher said.

As part of an academic improve- ment program, Chi-O held their first Professor ' s Dinner during Greek Week to better acquaint members with their instructors. " We wanted to start the week off right and show the professors that scholarship is important to us, " Catherine King, broadcast journal- ism junior, said. " Every girl could invite a professor, or two girls to- gether could invite a professor, " Vice President Laurie Stovall, ele- mentary education junior, said. " We had some professors that had five girls invite them. For a lot of the professors, the girls didn ' t have them this semester but had taken classes with them in previous semesters, so they got to see them again. It went really well, " King said. " We had 30-35 professors, which was a big group, especially for the first year. We ' ve tried to put a lot more emphasis on scholarship in the last few years and wanted to let them (the professors) know that, and to provide a time to get to know them better as people, " Stovall said. That the group has been putting in more time academically was evidenced by their latest recognition from the University. " This year we won the first Chapter Excellence Award, which was sponsored by the Order of Omega. The selection was made out of the whole Greek system, and I think a lot of it was based on how we ' ve been improving in areas like scholarship, " Stovall said. The group also continued plan- ning for the first Chi-O Carnival to benefit the Pebble Project helping abused children, to be held in fall 1990 on the State Capitol grounds. " Our philanthropies vary from se- mester to semester. Children ' s Hos- pital at Brackenridge was our major philanthropy for this year. We also volunteered for the School for the Blind, participated in the Campus Race for the Cure (for breast cancer research), and the Mobil Fun Run for charity, " King said. " We also have a sixth-grade class in the Adopt-a-School program at Blackshear Elementary School in East Austin and have student men- tors for that, and we worked at the Travis State School for Project Reach Out, " Stovall said. Improvments in academics, fun- draising and community service marked another successful year for the women of Chi Omega.

Everything from a tour of Dracu- la ' s castle to the talking plant in " Little Shop of Horrors " was present for the kids to enjoy. But the kids were not the only ones enjoying themselves. " It was more fun for us than it was for the kids ... I guess we ' re all ac- tors at heart, " director of philan- thropy Lynn Kelly, marketing jun- ior, said. Each Beta member played a dif- ferent role to help orchestrate the elaborate show. Outside the house, there was a gypsy fortune teller to prepare the kids for the fun that was to come. A butler was present to han- dle any requests as the children en- BETA THETA PI tered the first phase of the house. The first room was constructed as Dracula ' s castle. All the kids actively participated and became " Ghostbusters " as they were given flashlights with which to shoot ghost puppets being held behind a screen. " The fun part about it was that the guys participating here were really susceptible to what the kids wanted. They weren ' t afraid to regress and act like kids themselves, " Kelly, said. The next stop was Fairy Tale Land, where the youngsters were in- troduced to such characters as Little Miss Muffet, Jack Be Nimble, and Snow White. Fascination was the sen- timent as the storybook figures came to life for everyone to see. All eyes were on Dr. Frankenstein as the kids entered the mad scientist ' s room. Then a magic elevator came to lift the kids into the next phase the land of puppets. The talking plant from Little Shop of Horrors was just one of the many puppets that the children were able to speak with. At the exit there were Beta mem- bers painting designs on the kids ' fac- es. " We wanted to make sure that everyone had a good time, " Pres- ident Jim Reid, history junior, said. For the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, the haunted house project was an opportunity to put smiles on the fac- es of many children and benefit the Austin Children ' s Museum. For the members themselves, it was a time to rediscover their youth. " You don ' t get much chance when you ' re older to do things like that, (things) that are really fun, " Kelly said. " It helped the community but I think it made our day a little bit bet- ter too.

The Bevosaurus was Chi Phi ' s float in the Round-Up parade April 6. It tied for first place in originality. The Bevosaurus was a huge, 40- foot orange creature made of ply- wood. It had the head of a longhorn and the body of a dinosaur. Its head swiveled back and forth and its mouth opened to expose a large red tongue and two sharp fangs. " It ' s a monster, " said James But- ler, pre-med senior, who was one of the masterminds behind the float. The idea of the Bevosaurus came from Mardi Gras. There was a float in one parade called the Bacchus- aurus, from the Krewe of Bacchus. The Chi Phis based their float on the idea, but extended it to UT.

Although they began working on it three days in advance, the main construction of the float took place in the last 24 hours before the parade. Unfortunately, there was a thunderstorm the night before, but the Bevosaurus escaped unharmed. " We had an advantage in that we built ours out of wood instead of pa- pier mache ' , " said Billy Lahners, bio- chemistry junior. Chi Phi always took great pride in their floats. They placed in the com- petition several years in a row. In 1990 they were devoted to keeping the tradition. " By far it is the biggest float ever entered in a Round-Up parade, and we ' re pretty confident it ' s the best. We may not win, but we ' ll be having the most fun, " Lahners said just before the parade.

Eric Wright Jack Yee Jeff Young Mike Young ii Phi mphasizing Campus Involvement Delta Delta Delta gave its members the opportunity to learn more about UT organizations. Tri-Delta mem- bers, both pledges and actives, had the opportunity, through the soror- ity, to find a group of people they enjoyed working with. Several Tri- Delts became officers of other cam- pus clubs. Members performed a myriad of activities on campus. " We do a lot of things; we ' re very diversified, " Tracey Young, public relations jun- ior, said. Tri-Delts worked on the Spirit and Traditions Committee, which planned the pep rallies for the football games, and the Pom squad, among other athletics support groups. They also could be found among such groups as the Longhorn Singers and the Liberal Arts Council. The sorority actives also took the lead in several organizations. Many presidential positions in campus or- ganizations were filled by Tri-Delts. Examples included Spooks, headed one year by Meredith Hurley, ele- mentary education junior, and Spirit and Traditions, headed by Karin Marshall, Plan II junior. Some actives, wanting to join an organization for a particular purpose but not finding one in existence, cre- ated new campus organizations. One such organization was the Disch-Falk Diamonds, organized to support the UT Baseball team. One of the founders, Jennifer Stroud, was a Tri- Delt active. She also was president of the Diamonds in 1989. The Deltas also had Moms ' Day, a new tradition patterned after Dads ' Day in the fall. Because there wasn ' t an official Moms ' Day on campus, the event was considered to be an original Delta idea. Other members were active partici- pants in off-campus activities. Delta Delta Delta sponsored the Race for the Cure 5K race, which was a benefit for breast cancer research. President Robin Kelm, liberal arts junior, took part in the race ' s organization. " We each have our own individuality. There ' s just so many people doing everything, " Hurley said. The Tri- Delts, in part, not only enabled but en- couraged their members to take charge in the activities offered by the Univer- sity, and to create new groups. The end result was a broader variety of groups to choose from. Mark Scott TEAM WORK: Members of Delta Delta Delta and Delta Tau Delta pull together to win tug of war. photo by Clayton Brantly.

Nervous and excited, more than 50 children and teens arrived in buses and approached the front of the house, candy bags in hand. Upholding the chapter ' s tradition of providing aid to the blind and promoting sight conservation, Delta Gamma and the Texas Wranglers DELTA GAMMA sponsored a Halloween party for the Austin School for the Blind. " We wanted the kids from the Austin School for the Blind to have a Halloween just like children with sight, " Columnae Coordinator Lisa Perry, advertising junior, said. " By making the DG house into a little neighborhood, we gave the kids a chance to go door-to-door for real trick-or-treating. " Dressed in costumes from cowboys to cheerleaders, each student was led m into the house by a Wrangler and greeted at the door by a DG. " We were watching them get off the buses from inside the DG house and I think we were more excited than them, " Cathleen Bert, nutrition junior, said.

" After trick-or-treating, the Wran- glers and Delta Gammas got ac- quainted with the students as they talked, ate refreshments and sang around the piano until it was time for the party to end. " Halloween isn ' t a really big deal, but throwing this party with the DG ' s for the blind students made it a hol- iday with meaning, " Wrangler Jeff Landwehr, pre-law junior, said. " In just a few hours we gave the kids an exciting, happy Halloween. They had a blast and the DG ' s got a lot out of the experience, too, " Kim Carpenter, art sophomore, said.

Mobley, vice-president of Delta Sigma Phi and a co-chairman for the New Members Conference, said fra- ternities build leaders. He explained that when he was a rush chairman, he had a budget of several thousand dol- lars and was in charge of the budget for three different cities. " That ' s a lot of responsibility when you ' re 19 years old, " Mobley said. " You learn how to deal with peo- ple, " Derick Schaefer, prebusiness sophomore, said. " If you blow your top all the time, you ' re not going to make it. " The Delta Sigma Phi ' s Round-Up party, called Night on the Nile, was an example of the fraternity ' s em- phasis on leadership. Delta Sigma Phi " It ' s the biggest build party for Round-Up, " Mobley said. The Delta Sigma Phi ' s worked for a month to prepare for Night on the Nile. " We work all day and all night, " Matt Renner, prebusiness freshman, said. They took care of business at the party to protect their investments. " We always hire like ROTC mem- bers for security, and then have someone like an Austin city cop to check ID ' s and issue armbands to drink, " Mobley said. " ROTC guys are usually the bar- tenders, " Schaefer said. " Liability is just crazy in a frater- nity. The biggest thing now is in- surance, " Mobley said. " They ' re really pounding on us. " He said any Greek seminars he at- tended stressed the importance of risk management, and encouraged the fraternities to avoid anything they might be responsible for. The men of A2$ said they con- sidered their education at the Uni- versity as another business experi- ence. " It (the University) is definitely an entrance to the real world. There ' s no spoon-feeding at all, " Schaefer said. " In fact, you ' ve got so many obstacles at this school because the classes are so poorly organized. " " The word for survival at UT is discipline, " Mobley said. " That ' s probably the most important thing a person can have when they come to this school whether they ' re smart or whatever, " Schaefer said.

" These qualifications, according to Deke President Andy Middleton, were the fraternity ' s only prerequisites. This motto of AKE, created when the fraternity was founded at Yale University to protest the elitist ac- tivities of other fraternal clubs, was still upheld in 1990. Dekes stressed individuality as well as fraternity. " There are about 35 guys here and 35 different person- alities, " Middleton, economics sen- ior, said. AKE parties, open to anyone, gave evidence of the members ' willingness to accept people from all walks of life. " We allow a mix of people be- cause we want to get to know every kind of person, " Ken White, jour- nalism senior, said. " It ' s wrong to exclude anybody just because they ' re not a part of your group, " Middleton said. " Different people make a party fun. " In the same way, Dekes welcomed members of all races. " There is a great deal of prejudice in the fra- ternity system, but we have repre- sentation of all groups, and not just token representation, " Ethan Weiner, history junior, said. " Rush at Deke is based on who you are and what kind of person you are capable of becoming, " Cedric Smith, history junior, said. " It ' s like any other fraternity ex- cept people don ' t look at the color of your skin or anything else, " Smith, the first black officer in AKE, said. The Dekes ' laid-back attitude was also evident during their rush par- ties. They welcomed all rushees to their house and, through informal parties, tried to show them what AKE was really like. " We don ' t put on a show during rush. It ' s not superficial, " Smith said. The Dekes believed they were a unique part of the Greek commu- nity, described by one member as " quiet radicals. " " We ' ve shown something differ- ent. That ' s why I ' m a Deke, " Weiner said.

The members of Delta Phi Epsilon cel- ebrated the 1989 Christmas season by taking part in the " Light a Life " Cystic Fibrosis campaign. For 10 days, the girls worked two to three hour shifts for the cam- paign ' s booth, which was open from 3 to 9 every night. DUE members solicited donations from mall pa- trons, who received a free Christmas ornament for every dollar donated. On the final collection day, the high shift total of $190 for the three hours was brought in by a pledge, Tori Garcia. " It ' s for a great cause, was well worth it, " Garcia, a triple lan- guage international business pre- law senior, said. Garcia said that Delta Phi Epsilon was a very creative sorority, empha- sizing academics and a good social life. " DUE has the attitude for the 90s to which sororities should take, " said Garcia. The women of Delta Phi Epsilon said the fundr aiser was an education- al experience, as well as very emo- tional. The members worked with children suffering from cystic fibro- sis; in fact, the women who came to talk to the members about the event had lost children to the disease. " Unless someone came up to us who had cystic fibrosis, or had a child, or knew someone who had cys- tic fibrosis, you don ' t think about it. Then it hits you, " Robin Nathan, physical therapy sophomore, said. This event was the first exposure for Delta Phi Epsilon members to children with cystic fibrosis. Many of the girls had no prior knowledge of the disease, its effects or its outcome. Members said that the booth fund- raiser was a great success and con- sidered continuing it as an annual event. One thing all the members who participated agreed on was the joy of giving and the uplifting feeling the girls received for a job well done.

" We worked hard for the presen- tation party. It was intended to in- troduce the pledges to the public and to show that each of them had a talent, " Monique Jackson, communi- cations sophomore, said. The presentation party provided an opportunity for the 16 pledges to publicly state their names, majors and classifications. In addition, they all had to show their talents, which included dancing, singing, " rapping " and even a bit of acting. " We were proud of the girls and we were glad that everyone sacrificed and worked hard to make the show such a success, " Chandra Rogers, marketing senior, said. The emotional highlight of the show came when the members re- galed the pledges with roses and hugs to show their appreciation. The show was more than a pres- entation party. It made every Delta reaffirm to herself the commitment to service on which the sorority was founded. As Rogers said, " With love, de- termination, vision and cooperation we can attain any thing, if it be God ' s will.

For their community service project, the group worked on the restoration of the only log home on its original location standing in Austin. The cabins, located in a neighbor- hood at 4811 Sinclair, were con- demned in November 1987 and scheduled to be torn down. After the Rosedale Neighborhood Association made an effort to save them, archae- ologist Michael Collins and historian Karen Collins bought the cabins and decided to restore them. That was where the Delts stepped in. Members worked on the cabins five days a week throughout the year. Much of the work consisted of re- moving shingles, pulling nails and hauling away trash. The property actually contained three buildings and a well. After DELTA TAU DELTA researching, the Collinses discovered that the property was once a rural farmstead. In recent years the city had been built up around it, burying the cabins among houses in the busy West Austin neighborhood. Al- though the exact age of the cabins was not known, they were being re- stored to look as they would have in the 1870s. Not only was the service project useful, it also proved to be educa- tional. During the restoration of the home, several historic artifacts were found including an Indian arrow- head embedded in one of the logs. " It ' s neat that we can help out, because this is a piece of Texas his- tory that everyone can enjoy, " Dar- rell Armer, finance junior, said. " It sure beats picking up trash on the side of the highway. " Although the Collinses would have restored the cabins without the Delts ' help, things moved along much more quickly because of their efforts. " We are very grateful for their help, " Karen Collins said. When the project was finished, a marker was placed outside the cabins telling about their history. A book about the restoration, which would include a chapter on the Delts, was also planned. The Delts said they were proud of the service project because of its last- ing results. " I want to be able to take my kids down here in 20 years and show them the house where the Delts worked, " Kent Ibanez, Plan II fresh- man, said.

Although the game was lost, the entire weekend, which included a re- treat in San Antonio, was a time when Delta Upsilon members real- ized that all goals could be achieved through hard work and persever- ance. " It was the classic situation of our coming in as underdogs. They of- fered to lend us players, but we in- sisted on going with what we had, " said Cyril Mickiewicz, biology senior. " Scoring on them was quite a feat. " The retreat geared members for success, as specific goals were out- lined and time was taken to reflect on the past and make plans for the fu- ture. Among the themes touched on was the need to make the most of the fraternity ' s own resources. By the end of the retreat, their morale was high and aspirations were soaring. At 3:00 that morning, the group headed back to Austin and were on the pushball field by 9:30 a.m. For the members of Delta Upsilon it was more than just a game. " It was a chance to prove where we stood on our lofty goals, " said Mic- kiewicz. " The important thing was to give it a shot. " " We don ' t try to project a glittery image we ' re a straightforward group, " Jeff Dennis, electrical engi- neering freshman, said. When recalling the retreat week- end, Vice President Steve Puryear, prebusiness sophomore, said, " It was the boost that our chapter needed, and right at the time we needed it. It ' s going to help us go a long way. " Buck Sralla EVERYBODY PUSH!

" It ' s ridiculous, " Dubinski, government junior, said. " Trying to abolish Round-Up is just a reactionary response to all the conflict on campus. It serves no purpose. " " If people think abolishing Round- Up will solve th ese kinds of problems, they are wrong, " Phi Gamma Delta member Peter Blomquist, English jun- ior, said. " I think it would be a better idea to get more of the University in- volved. I think all student organizations should be involved in Round-Up, not just Greeks. " Throughout the controversy, mem- bers of the Greek community expressed their resentment of being generalized as racist. " If we ' re all white supremacists, " Dubinski said, " Then I ' m the only Jewish white supremacist I ' ve ever heard of. " Dubinski said he felt the University ' s problems were not exclusive to the Greek community. " The problem here is societal, " he said. " Mainly people come here who have not had much op- portunity to mix with people of other cultures, and they remain isolated. Classes of 500 people make it difficult to mix with anyone, let alone those of other cultures. " Blomquist agreed. " There is a lot of ignorance and insensitivity around that Friday, April 6 Racial slurs appeared on a car that had been used by Delta Tau Delta in the Round-Up parade. Saturday, April 7 Members of Phi Gamma Delta distributed T-shirts featuring the face of a " Sambo " caricature on the body of professional basketball player Michael Jordan. Monday, April 9 Two dozen African-American students met with James Vick, Vice President for Stu- dent Affairs, and Sharon Justice, Dean of Students, to demand the University punish the fraternities by noon Thursday. Tuesday, April 10 Delta Tau Delta and Phi Gam- ma Delta were prohibited from advertising, fund- raising, demonstrating, using UT facilities, sponsoring campus events and participating in intramural sports. Wednesday, April II The fraternities published formal letters of apology in the Daily Texan. More than 1,000 students gathered at Jester, then marched is not necessarily directed at any one group, " Blomquist said. He said that he felt the Sambo t-shirts were a direct result of that ignorance. " When I saw them, I knew there was going to be trouble. They were obviously racist. But I think the guy who printed them up was just not thinking about racism. He was only thinking of selling t- shirts. " Dubinski said that both fraternities handled themselves excellently in their situations. " Before any of the news went public, the fraternities had already sat down with the IFC and mapped out a plan and written letters of apology, " he said. The Fiji plan included establishing a lecture series for the University to aid in recruiting and retention of minority professors as well as a private lecture series at the house on multiculturalism. Both men said they felt the events were blown out of proportion by biased UT news coverage and the reactions of other student leaders. " The Daily Texan has tried to aggravate the problem with one-sided coverage, " Dubinski said. " And the fact that we have leaders like Marcus Brown and Toni Luckett who refused to sit down, have productive dialogue and come up with meaningful solutions is a tragedy in itself. We want- ed to sit down with the BSA and the SA right away, but they took over two weeks to answer our calls. " on the State Capitol. The students then marched to the Phi Gamma Delta house, chanting, " Hey UT, have you heard? This is not Johannesburg " and " Hey hey, ho ho, racist frat boys got to go. " They sang songs and listened to speakers. Friday, April 13 President William Cunningham held a press conference on the steps of West Mall but was shouted down by angry students who claimed he was avoiding the issue. Monday, April 16 President Cunningham placed a full-page advertisement in the Daily Texan to print the speech he was unable to complete Friday. Wednesday, May 2 Delta Tau Delta and Phi Gamma Delta were sentenced to a one-year suspension and 1,200 hours of community service. Additionally, each member and pledge of both fraternities were to be required to have 20 hours of approved multicultural training over the next year. Suggestions were made to abolish Round-Up. The Fijis filed an appeal after receiv- ing their sentence because they said the only facilities they used on campus were classrooms for pledge study halls. Also, they would not be allowed to collect money on campus for charity. The IFC said such suspension is not only count- er-productive, but reactionary. " The UT administration were pres- sured to cater to radical demands and threats, " Dubinski said. " Any other stu- dent organization would not have been suspended from campus. It serves no purpose. " Blomquist said that he felt President Cunningham had not handled the sit- uation as poorly as many people be- lieved. " I think he was treated unfairly [when shouted down]. What people need most right now is interaction, and people are not being allowed to inter- act. " Dubinski also said that the Greek community had long been trying to deal with the issue of multiculturalism on campus. At the Greek New Members Conference, which all fraternity and so- rority pledges were required to attend, multiculturalism was one of four topics discussed. It was also discussed at the Greek Leadership Conference in the spring. " A lot of steps have been taken, " he said. " We ' ve come a long way. We know we still have a long way to go.

They put action behind their words when they joined the Adopt-a-Highway program and cleaned two miles of Texas highway. Four times throughout the year, KA members went out to clean up trash along a two-mile stretch on Highway 183. The participants said the work gave them a real sense of contributing to the program. They adopted the highway for two years and were responsible for keeping it free of litter. " We ' ve been wanting to do this for about a year. We want to show the city we ' re involved, " John Cum- mings, liberal arts senior, said. A majority of the KAs were from Texas and expressed pride in the state. " I ' ve learned t hat the one thing that makes Texas unique is the sense of pride and responsibility that most of us hold for our state, " Kelly Christopher Green Robert Green Dwyer, pre-law sophomore, said. The Adopt-a-Highway program was started in 1 985 and, by 1 990, was going strong, according to Wanda LaRoche, coordinator of the pro- gram. LaRoche was responsible for the Austin area district in which 577 miles of highway had been adopted. LaRoche said she found it encour- aging that student groups such as the Kappa Alpha fraternity helped with the program. " It ' s a really good civic activity, " she said. " I think a good number of people would like to help out, but only by organizing our efforts can we really have an effect, " Dwyer said. " Austin ' s a great city because it of- fers us so much. I believe we owe Austin in return. " Tracy Sergo GETTING CLOSE: Damon Collazo and Jon Newberry dance at the Kappa Alpha formal. - photo by Patrick Humphries.

Kappa Alpha Theta members learned a new meaning of the word sisterhood in 1990 by becoming ac- tively involved in the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) pro- gram. " We adopted the program a few years ago, but this year we ' re getting really involved and focusing on the program more, " Aimee Goody, organizational communica- tion senior, said. Vanessa Askew Caroline Baird KAPPA ALPHA THETA The program was a non-profit or- ganization that provided volunteers to work with neglected and abused children in Harris County. It sought to promote community welfare by intervention into neglectful family situations. " Being a part of this program has a direct impact on an abused child ' s life, " Goody said. " Everyone is ex- cited about participating because it will help a lot of children. " As CASA volunteers, Thetas raised money through an annual bike-a-thon. Other Thetas became CASA advocates by attending a 24- hour training program. " As an advocate you will be the voice for an abused child in court, " Goody said. The CASA volunteers also inves- tigated the abused child ' s home, helped with rehabilitation of the child and monitored the child ' s placement into foster homes. " It takes a lot of dedication, but any- thing worth doing does, " Suzi Tay- lor, organizational communication junior, said. The amount of time involved in being a CASA volunteer averaged 3- 4 hours a week, which the Thetas believed was time well-spent. " We could do something that doesn ' t take much time, but we wouldn ' t be getting as much out of it, " Armstrong said. " No one needs a big sister as much as these abused or neglected kids, and a little of our time makes a world of difference to them.

" One of our basic purposes as a fraternity is achievement. We are trying to achieve academically at the Univer- sity, but we feel that helping the com- munity is another achievement as well. " KAPsi worked toward this goal through their community work, which ranged in its types as well as in its beneficiaries. In both the fall and spring semesters, some members joined a group called Youth Incor- porated. With this group, the fra- ternity members tutored students at Pierce Junior High once a week dur- ing the fall. In the spring, two mem- bers, Andrew Carter, sociology jun- ior, and Chuck Okoye, civil engineering junior, coached a bas- ketball team of 10- to 12-year-olds sponsored by Youth Incorporated. KAPPA ALPHA PSI But the Kappas ' work did not stop there. They continued to aid young adults by giving two academic schol- arships to local high school students. Each of these scholarships provided $250 to its recipient. Carter said that " with all the trials and tribulations facing black Americans today, we must not neglect the youth, because they are the future of our race and our country. " However, Kappa Alpha Psi ' s work was not restricted to schools. The fraternity regularly gave food to the Central East Austin Community Or- ganization, which then distributed the food to those in need. Several members of Kappa Alpha Psi were in the process of starting two other projects, one of which in- volved a retired teacher in Austin who wanted to open a Black Texan Cultural Museum. This project called for the renovation of a build- ing for the museum. However, the museum was in need of more fund- ing and until it was available, the project had to be postponed. In April, the fraternity adopted an elderly lady with no relatives in Aus- tin. The members did chores such as yardwork and grocery shopping. Kappa Alpha Psi ' s desire for achievement was not limited to the University. Their service to the com- munity showed that their goals ex- tended throughout Austin.

They did not gather to gossip, to talk about parties or to complain about school. Instead, they all brought their Bibles and began their weekly Bible study session. " It ' s sharing with one another about things we have in common, " Elizabeth Denman, education senior, said. Denman and Jodi Pratt, special education senior, led the session that Wednesday. " I think it ' s sharing KAPPA DELTA something different than we do everyday, " Pratt said. They started the study session with readings from Charles Swindell ' s Christian book, Seasons of Life. Each participant took turns reading a pas- sage. Then they all referred to a scripture in the Bible, interpreting what they read. Finally, they dis- cussed how each reading applied to their own lives. The KAs had carried on their Bible study tradition for three years. They held hour-long meetings three times a week. President Leslie Laffitte, French senior, led one meeting a week. Pratt and Denman led a sec- ond meeting, and chapter chaplain Tre Saunders, liberal arts sopho- more, led the third weekly meeting. " I always wanted to teach Bible School, " Pratt said. " It [teaching] helps me to listen more than talk. " Laffitte said that in a group of 1 50 people, it was difficult to know all the members well. " This [Bible study meeting] is a way of getting a dif- ferent group of girls tog ether that wouldn ' t normally get together, " Laffite said. Pratt said that usually the pledges looked up to the actives and the of- ficers in a way that set them apart. She said the younger members hes- itated to treat the actives as friends. However, during Bible study the hi- erarchy disappeared. " We get down on the floor and we ' re all on the same level, " Pratt said.

" Everybody likes the music and knows the songs. (Little Richard) is pretty universal, " Michael Dalton, history freshman, said. Youth seemed a state of mind as members of all ages danced beside each other to such hits as " Good Golly Miss Mol- ly. " Little Richard ' s performance added the final touch to th e activities surrounding the Tau Trustees week- end celebration. The traditional chapter meeting, which was attended by the trustees and alumni, kicked off the festivities. Alumni Richard Rainwater was honored at the meeting and named Tau Man of the Year. The honoree, SIGM an associate with Touchstone Pic- tures, employed Little Richard for the occasion, as he had hired the actor-musician for his role in " Down And Out In Beverly Hills. " Although Rainwater had become quite a success, members of the Kap- pa Sigma organization maintained that his feet, like those of all alumni, were still on the ground, with roots sunk deeply in Kappa Sig soil. " (The whole weekend) was great because we were meeting so many older, col- orful personalities and we all had this common bond Kappa Sigs, " Sut- ton Turner, prebusiness sophomore, said. Helping to strengthen the ties were the stories told by alumni mem- bers about their days at UT. When remembering the Tau Trustees weekend, the overwhelm- ing sentiment was that the more things changed, the more they stayed the same. The Kappa Sig spirit was constant in the hearts of all. " It was fun just seeing and getting to talk to all the successful businessmen that were here, " said Akin. " It was a very encouraging experience.

" Compared to our last house . . . there ' s a lot more room for parties, there ' s a lot more room to meet in, " Joel Serface, chemical engineering sophomore, said. The house was dedicated in a cer- emony held Nov. 18 after the TCU football game. As part of Alumni Weekend events, the Lambda Chis honored outstanding alumni Lloyd LAMBDA CHI ALPHA Doggett, Texas Supreme Court Jus- tice, and Ben Bynum, the man who originated the associate system of membership and helped eliminate pledgeship and hazing. The extra room for parties in the newly-dedicated house came in handy for the luau, as extensive building was required for the proj- ect. Members brought in 13 tons of white beach sand to spread in the house courtyard and constructed a two-story waterslide that ended in a pool specially built for the occasion. The final touch was a live rock band that played inside the house. Members stressed that their new house was not just a place to party. The amount of meeting space came in handy; the Interfraternity Council and the Greek and Service Organization oc- casionally met in the AXA house. In addition, the fraternity hosted guest speakers such as UT spirit coordinator Margaret Berry throughout the fall se- mester to entertain and educate their associate members. Members saw the new house as a way to reestablish their group in West Cam- pus and the community at large. " This new house has kind of been a breath of fresh air for us. In addition to the partying and stuff everyone knows about, we do a lot of good work for the community, " Serface said. The fraternity worked on several projects throughout the year that ben- efited various needy groups. They sponsored a car wash to benefit the Austin Autism Society, and some mem- bers volunteered at area soup kitchens. AXA also held a baseball game with members of the Texas Boys Club. So their new home provided the im- petus for Lambda Chi to make them- selves known in the UT community. But some members liked it for one very simple reason. " The old house was like a shack, " Treasurer Jason Belew, accounting sophomore, said. " This is like a palace.

Phi Delt president Todd Feder, economics senior, described their policy as silent pride. He said the Phi Delts did not wear their Greek letters on t-shirts or display the letters on their cars. Feder said, " We don ' t wear our Greek letters because it ' s not really necessary to advertise. Image- making is not the point of a frater- nity. " Instead, the Phi Delts stressed ded- ication to the chapter itself and to its members. Feder said, " It ' s important to de- velop a relationship with your chapter and not just use the name. " ' HI DELTA THETA " We do place importance on the national Phi Delta Theta fraternity, but our pride is not only that we are Phi Delts but that we are Phi Delts here in Texas, " Chip Boyd, geog- raphy sophomore, said. Phi Delta Theta, the oldest fra- ternity at UT, also maintained a strong alumni program. The alums were largely responsible for and ac- tually owned the house. In 1989 they helped install a new air-conditioning unit. " The national chapter influences us a lot in organization, but it ' s the Texas Phi Delt alums that actually take care of the house and help us out, " Boyd said. " The alums are fairly involved. Most of the Phi Delts who graduate and still live in the area help us out whenever they can, " Chris Milisci, economics senior, said. The Phi Delts emphasized that membership in a fraternity did not end at graduation. " I ' m going to be active when I ' m an alum and make sure that the tra- ditions like silent pride stay the same, " Boyd said. " I ' ll keep in touch until the bitter end. I plan on being a supporting alum, " Feder said.

ENOUGH SAID: Par- ty at the Phi Delta Theta house, March 3. photos by Patrick Humphries Phi Delta Theta 435 ports Offer Opportunity To Excel What ' s the best way to stay In shape and relieve the stress of school while forming a strong bond with fellow fraternity members? Intramu- ral sports. Phi Gamma Delta was ranked highly in almost every league offered by the University ' s intramural sports programs. In football, Fijis took the intramural championship and went on to represent UT in a national tournament in New Orleans. They took second place in basketball. The Fijis said that their activity in intramurals was important in many ways. " I think in the general view of people, they see (fraternity members) as being non-athletic, and I think it ' s important for us to be competitive with groups outside of Greek leagues at the University, " Robert Rogers, history junior, said. The sports also helped form a bond among members. " With all the diversity, that ' s a common thread for most people here, " President John Young, Plan II junior, said. " A lot of people played some varsity sport in high school. Then they haven ' t been good enough to make the varsity team, but they ' re able stay active in it OFFICERS: Peter Blomquist, Robert Rogers, John Young.

Jay Brown Stephen Butter Jr. Joseph Cahoon Richard Chambers through intramurals. " The Fijis were active in sports out- side the university as well, playing in Greek leagues and staying in shape on the basketball court in their house yard. " On Saturdays, a lot of people go out to the lake club and go water- skiing or play stickball, " Reagan Nash, business junior, said. Athletic activity was just one of several focal points for Phi Gamma Delta, which also included charity, academics and fun. " Austin is a great town, " Nash said. " It gives you op- portunities to be involved in academ- ics and still have fun. You don ' t have to be stressed out all the time. " " I think that ' s one of the main advantages of being in a fraternity in Austin is you can learn to get your grades and at the same time there is so much more ... so you come out of here not only with an education in school, but in life and the fact that there ' s different things you ' re going to have to gauge and balance to get your studies done, " Young said.

" It ' s finally ours; that ' s what it comes down to, " said alumnus Scott Muhlig, a founder of the fraternity when it was recolonized after a 12- year absence from the University. Muhlig said that low membership in the early 1970s resulted in the loss of the group ' s house. Twelve years later, Austin alumni petitioned the national 4 KS chapter to recolonize the fraternity. At that point, the group moved into an older house holding about 45 men. But when the lease ran out, the landlord ' s demand for a rent in- crease prompted the fraternity to move temporarily to 611 W. 22nd St., now the home of Tau Kappa Epsilon. PHI KAPPA SIGMA " It was an economical move, " Jim Current, chemical engineering jun- ior, said. But the house ' s small size and its lack of a commercial kitchen caused problems for the growing organiza- tion. " We were there for almost three years, but it was really a totally inadequate structure, " Muhlig said. Finally, in September 1989, oppor- tunity knocked, and i KS obtained its very own house at 2505 San Gabriel. Both Current and Muhlig expressed relief and satisfaction that their fra- ternity had finally found a house able to accommodate them. " Now we ' ve got a regular full-sized commercial kitchen that ' s capable of feeding the whole chapter, " Muhlig said. Large meeting rooms and a good location added to the house ' s appeal, and alumni pitched in with donations of dining room furniture, couches and a wide-screen TV to fur- nish the larger house. The building ' s size also was a fac- tor in building impressive party dec- orations. For example, the decor for the group ' s Phi Kappalypse Now par- ty in October 1989 featured a two- story waterfall plunging from the roof into a manmade lake in the backyard. The water was pumped from the lake back into the waterfall, Muhlig said, at a rate of " 5,000 gal- lons a minute it was pretty wild. " Only one small detail marred the Phi Kappa Sigmas ' satisfaction with their new home. Since the structure had once housed the Delta Phi Ep- silon sorority, the decor was not quite to the mens ' taste. " We had a tough time with the peach-colored walls, " Current said. But the defect was quickly remedied with new paint, and the I KSs settled in to the heart of West Campus.

Brotherhood was a strong commit- ment in this small fraternity. " Since we are a small fraternity, we get to know each other better than in other fraternities, " Mauro Kouchoukos, pre-business freshman, said. The brothers of Phi Kappa Theta were more than just an organization; they carried between them a bond that was real. " One of my brothers helps me out in economics, since I have trouble with that class. There are also little things that your broth- ers can help you out with - - for example, when you are low on cash, " Margarito Aranda, communications freshman, said. Being a member of Phi Kappa Theta was a positive experience for members. " There ' s always some- where to go and someone to talk to, " Aranda said. " We get to know each other on a personal basis. " The members of Phi Kappa Theta were more than members of the same fraternity -- they were broth- ers willing to support each other. They agreed that their brotherhood would not end as soon as they left the University, but that it would last throughout every member ' s life. Proof of that was the fact that alumni frequented the house and the Uni- versity campus. Gomez summed up his view of the fraternity when he said, " I don ' t sell the house or the parties it ' s more of a personal thing. " This year it was safe to say that Phi Kappa Theta defined brotherhood and a sense of belonging in every way. Robert J. Hernandez FRONT ROW: Richard Hogeda. Rogelio Mcrcado. Arthur A.

Pi Beta Phi, the first sorority founded on the UT campus, faced in 1990 the ever-present problem of the homeless. Each Thursday morning, Pi Phi members fed the homeless of Austin, with the help of a woman named Diane Kloster and a group called Greeks In Service. Several other or- ganizations were involved. " We found out what she (Kloster) was doing, and we started helping out as a group. It ' s a rewarding ex- perience. Everyone who does it gets something out of it, " President Sa- rah Lenhart, marketing junior, said. In addition to helping the home- less, Pi Beta Phi instituted a man- datory philanthropy rule, beginning in 1989. This new rule stated that each member had to participate in at least one philanthropy. However, Lenhart said that most of the women in Pi Beta Phi voluntarily participat- ed in more events than required. " Sororities encourage moral growth, " Carolyn Blakeley, English senior, said. " Philanthropies are the most beneficial sorority service to Austin, but they ' re sort of ignored, publicity-wise. " " We thought it would be beneficial to the members if they could get an idea of the needs in Austin, " Lenhart said. Other philanthropies the Pi Phis were involved in included their an- nual Salvation Army food drives at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as the national chapter ' s philanthro- py, Arrowmont, an art school for the underprivileged located in Gat- linburg, Tenn. The group also continued their traditional trick-or-treat through the Pi Phi house for the children of so- rority alumnae. " It ' s safer for the kids to trick-or-treat at the house, where their parents know the people who live there, than it is for them to go out in unknown neighborhoods, " Blakeley said. How did the homeless influence those who worked with them? " You don ' t feel the problem until you see it up front, " said Heather Way, gov- ernment journalism sophomore. " Then you realize that you can make a difference. " Allison Drish FRONT ROW: Lyn Marie Gardner, Stephanie Lynn Marlin, Carolyn Lee Blakeley, Amy Averetl Knight, Cheryl Lynn Peil.

To do this, they stepped up both their study ses- sions and their philanthropic pur- suits. As far as academics were con- cerned, the Pike pledges were re- quired to attend at least four study halls each week. Many actives attend- ed these study halls and served in the capacity of tutors so that they were able to help the pledges get through KAPPA ALPH the rigors of their first semester. As far as philanthropies went, the Pikes continued their work with United Cerebral Palsy and raised more than $1,100. In addition, in November they worked with clothier Acapulco Joe to put on a discount clothing sale. All proceeds from the sale, which figured in the thousands, went to America ' s fight against child abuse. Once again, the Pikes had a busy social schedule, with matches in the fall involving such themes as Mud and Mardi Gras. One of their fa- vorite projects was the Swamp party, in which the construction was as fun as the party itself. In the building phase, the pledges developed a close bond that never faded. " I felt a sense of brotherhood that I didn ' t feel before with my pledge brothers during the building of the Swamp, " Jeff Beckel, pre-business freshman, said. The party was once again very successful, with numerous waterfalls, IH HOME SWEET HOME: The Pike house in sleepy repose. photo by Hannes Hacker.

Walbridge Gregory Kocian J Ts " urning the Wheels of Hope The handicapped were a segment of society of which few people were aware. For many, a wheelchair was an oddity to avoid on the sidewalk or stare at as it went by. But for the 8 1 members of Pi Kappa Phi, a wheel- chair was a means to collect proceeds for the physically challenged. People Understanding the Severe- ly Handicapped, a philanthropy founded by the fraternity in 1976, received a check for $1500.57. The men of Pi Kappa Phi raised these funds in a 75 hour push-a-thon in which members wheeled the chair around the University, collecting spare change from passers-by. " It was originally an awareness event, not a monetary goal, " PUSH Chairman Mark Flowers, pre-law sophomore, said. " Another one of our chapters tried it and it worked. But instead of just doing it during the day like they did, we thought it was more impressive if we pushed through the night. " The three-day event kicked off with TV news and newspaper cov- erage and targeted the campus malls, Guadalupe Street, libraries and dorms. When the first day ' s proceeds totalled over $400, a goal for $1500 was set for the end of the push-a- thon. " For such a small chapter we did exceedingly well. We consider a good fundraiser to be $1000, " Flowers said. The real suprise, according to Flowers, was not the amount of mon- ey raised but the participation of every member. " If members didn ' t have free time in the day they would sign up at night. I figured the night shifts were the hardest ones to fill, but these were the first to go, " he said. One participant said it was worth the effort. " It was very tiring to work that late at night. I just readjusted my free time to work at that time and still keep up. There are a few in- cidents of bonding together and we pretty much did that, " Public Re- lations Chairman Mike Tumulty, ad- vertising junior, said. Pi Kappa Phi set its fundraising goal for the year at $6000, with the proceeds going to build specially- engineered playground units, com- puter systems, entrance ramps and sidewalks for local schools. In addition to the surprises and the awareness of handicaps it created, the push-a-thon may have lifted oth- er stereotypes. " Hopefully we ' re breaking the negative image about fraternities, " Tumulty said.

Fifty members accompanied by dates started what could become a tradition. Bored with the Austin scene, they chartered an airplane to Las Vegas, Nev.

" We had talked about it since September. We finally got a travel agent who got us to Las Ve- gas. " For some, the trip was like go- ing to their second home. However, for those like Weston Butler, phi- losophy senior, Las Vegas was all new. Butler ' s first comment upon leaving the airplane at the Las Vegas airport was, " Gee! Is this really Ve- gas? " The group arrived in Las Vegas Saturday afternoon and immediately hit the Strip. For 14 hours, the Sigma Alpha Epsilon members and their guests took on Las Vegas. The most popular entertainment activity seemed to be gambling. The boys let loose. While playing high-stakes blackjack at one of the many casinos, Chris Hotze, history senior, screamed, " I ' ve never had so much fun losing this much money! " Un- fortunately, one member did have so much fun losing all his money that when he returned home, he was forced to sell his car to pay his debt. Those that were not quite ready to part with their automobiles left the casinos and headed for the enter- tainment of Las Vegas. These trav- elers attended a Frank Sinatra show at Caesar ' s Palace. They traded in the gambling for a night of relax- ation with the music of the Vegas veteran. After the show, they re- joined the others for more fun. The group stayed throughout the night doing everything but sleeping. Sunday morning, they got back on the plane and flew back home. The men had nothing but good things to say about it. Las Vegas treated them well. However, members said they didn ' t know if this would become an annual event. The trip was best de- scribed by President James Lynch, economics senior, when he said, " Big money, big time, Vegas. Baby! " Jill Wagner tilt, ft he Wild, Wild West Comes Alive The Wild West was alive and well as the members of Sigma Alpha Mu took a tradition and turned it into a successful charity event. The Sammies spent a part of their Round-Up weekend raising money for Multiple Sclerosis research. To add to the tradition of the Wild West, they sponsored a mechanical bull riding competition, which took place at the house. " About three years ago, we had a bull, but due to complications we abandoned the whole idea. This year, however, we found another bull, and since this whole concept went with our Round-Up theme, we decided to revive the bull riding competition once more, " Mark Es- SIGMA ALPHA MU tes, communication freshman, said. More than 75 people comprising 25 teams participated in the event. The participants came from frater- nities, sororities and other student organizations. Admission was free for spectators and more than 500 people gathered to see teams of three members take turns at riding the bull in the male and female categories. The winners were awarded with tro- phies and all spectators enjoyed see- ing their peers battle such a vicious machine. " We had a lot more participants than expected and we feel that it ended up being a pretty successful event, " Dan Friedman, government junior, said. " Really it went well and we had a lot of laughs seeing our friends and people we knew riding the bull, " Es- tes said. The Sammies charged each com- peting team $30 as an entrance fee, and all in all, the group raised more than $800 dollars for the charity. " It was the first time in three years that we ' ve had this event. It ' s sure going to be a continuing tradition at Sigma Alpha Mu, " Scott Herckis, prebusi- ness freshman, said.

Sigma Chi 455 hildren Brighten Round-Up Float The day was full of sunshine and smiles for 15 fourth grade boys and girls and the members of Sigma Del- ta Tau as they traveled down Guadalupe in the Round-Up Parade. " The event was a combination of two programs, one being our SDT Round-Up Parade float and the oth- er our Adopt-a-School Program, " Becky Miller, finance sophomore, said. By interacting with the kids, project coordinator Alexia Bres wanted to create a comfortable at- mosphere to ease new members into the tradition of the SDT family. Having the kids on the float low- ered any inhibitions and allowed the sorority members to be themselves. " You always feel something from kids. There are always things you want to do but you feel silly doing. Since there are kids around you can actually do it without feeling quite as silly, " Peta Narun, public relations sophomore, said. However, the parade was more than a bonding experience for the sorority members. It was an oppor- tunity to give a group of mostly mi- nority children a big sister for an afternoon. " We want to be more than just a sorority for ourselves. We know there are other people out there and that they need attention too, " Amy Goldstein, psychology sophomore, said. At first, the fourth graders were afraid of the sorority members, but by the end of the parade they did not want to leave their new friends. Members of the sorority took pride in seeing the change in the children ' s faces. " I think we gave them a sense that someone cares about them here, taking their hand and showing them the world, " Susan Lowey, education junior, said. Afterwards, the sorority received a letter from each of the children thanking them for the parade and asking to come back next year. " As small a parade as it was, it was still a parade they got to be in, " Narun said. At the end of the day, big sisters, little sisters and even the littlest sisters and brothers realized that one of the best parts of life is sharing something as simple as a pa- rade around the University. -Jerry Clark FLIGHTLESS WATER FOWL: Berke Breathed ' s Opus floats down Guadalupe. photo by Carrie Dawson.

Tn pW to meet each ate thefrateran. ore than a Tradition For Members Dad ' s Day was always a special time to the students at the University of Texas, but to the members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, Dad ' s Day took on a special meaning. After an exciting day of football on Nov. 4, the Sig Eps held a party in honor of their parents called Red Garter. This party enabled parents to meet each other and members of the fraternity. The invitation to Red Garter also was extended to alumni, who were given the chance to renew old ac- quaintances and make new ones while enjoying themselves at the par- ty. Red Garter also served as a way for prospective pledges to become better acquainted with the fraterni- ty ' s lifestyle. " The tradition of Red Garter be- gan nine years ago, when the Sig Ep house was built, " President Steve Shipley, finance senior, said. Extensive building went into the preparation of Red Garter. For two weeks prior to Dad ' s Day, members slaved outside almost every day, building props, platforms and stairs for the event.

This wasn ' t just any house; it was a home, a place wher e fraternal bond- ing could flourish and spread to oth- er UT men for years to come. After a semester of searching, the brothers of TKE finally left their old abode and found a place to call their own. Nestledjust a few blocks west of campus sat the refurbished Teke house. " We ' ve just outgrown the old house, " Chapter Educator Jay John- son, economics senior, said. " This one had the best location, and it had the right size. " The 19th-century house, already declared an official city landmark, became more than just a dwelling for the members, according to one res- ident. " With so many people living in the house, it makes the fraternity bond a little higher. You really have no choice but to be close to all of them, " President Troy Collman, account- ing finance senior, said. Johnson agreed. " The brother- hood is a lot stronger. It ' s more close-knit. You get to know each oth- er a lot more, " he said. For the Tekes, the house possessed even more benefits. " It ' s been a great boost for morale. We have a lot of space to do more stuff; whereas TAU KAPPA EPSILON before, we couldn ' t conduct business without some sort of interruption, " Johnson said. " It ' s also easier to get up for your eight o ' clock classes, " Collman add- ed. No sooner did the fraternity move in did the house start having an ef- fect on its membership growth. " It ' s helped us out quite a bit. It ' s excellent for rush ' cause of the lo- cation. It ' s closer to Jester and cam- pus dorms, " Collman said. " And for the president and the treasurer to both be accessible is very convenient for the members. " With a long history already behind it, the house sheltered yet another budding household. " It really is a step in the right di- rection, " Collman said. " Over the years it ' s developed a good karma. " Michael Trust FRONT ROW: Gregory Alan Perliski.

Walbridge iiiiiir Michael Russell Craig Self Shane Utter Tau Kappa Epsilon 463 oing Out To Spread The News Why would a group of privileged fraternity men take time out one Sat- urday morning to assist the Austin Tenants ' Council in building housing for the homeless and low income families in the Prospect Hill and Blackland areas of Austin? The members of Theta Chi chose to work with the Tenants ' Council because they felt that the council provided a good service to Austin there was always a need for adequate housing among lower income fami- lies. " We feel that the council pro- vides a good service to those who are in need of the service but don ' t hear about the service, " Stephen Sim- THETA CHI rnons, Russian senior, said. Theta Chi worked with the council for the first time in 1990. When they applied to assist the council, they hoped to serve as the carpenters and painters for the houses, but they were beat out by other volunteering organizations, President Robert Simpson, finance senior, said. They then a ssumed the task of information spreading. They went out and told residents in lower income neighbor- hoods about the Housing Resource Association and the free construc- tion for needy people in the area. Scott Pasternak, government soph- omore, said, " The people we dealt with were very receptive and inter- ested in what we were doing. " The good feeling for the work didn ' t end the day the men went out. They were even more pleased when later that week it was announced that their project had won first place in the Interfraternity Council Philan- thropy Judging Contest.

" We ' re really close to obtaining a charter so close we can taste it, " Inez Marroquin, electrical engineer- ing sophomore, said. Even though their their national philanthropy was the National Mul- tiple Sclerosis Society, the Theta Xi ' s held their Halloween party on Oct. 28, 1989, to collect food for the needy. The price of admission was limited to a canned food donation or any other non-perishable food item, or $2. Both the money raised and the food items were handed over to the Capital Area Food Bank, from where it was sent to Austin ' s needy. " We were very successful we got about 1 00 cans of food from that one night alone, " Marroquin said. " Each year we try to pick some good out of all the fun we have. " Aside from performing a public service, those who attended were well entertained. Music was provided by the band Touch Gallery, a local Sixth Street favorite. There was food and drinks along with costumes rang- ing from the cute to the bizarre. " I don ' t remember much, but it was wild, " Scott Gilmore, pre- business sophomore, said. The brothers, pledges, their dates and all partygoers had a wonderful Halloween celebration, supporting a worthy charity while they did it. " We weren ' t busted this year, and that ' s a good sign, " Gilmore said. " Maybe that ' s an incentive for Theta Xi ' s charitable efforts to continue in the future. " Wayne C.

The event, which included basket- ball, raquetball and tennis tourna- ments, benefited the Children ' s Hos- pital of Austin. The preparation for this fundrais- ing event took only a couple of months. David Hoodis, govern- ment psychology senior, said that only a short time was required for preparation because the group used the groundwork from the previous Michael Appleman David Loev till year. " Last year, we had to start working in the fall, " Hoodis said, " and the University was also very coopera- tive. " Participation was opened to the general public, but the majority of participants were UT students. Sat- urday ' s events went as planned, thanks to good organization and clear weather. Sunday ' s tourna- ments, though not cancelled, were rushed because of rain. Several fra- ternity members said they were hap- py with the turnout, and many mem- bers even participated in the weekend events. " The participants really seemed enthusiastic about the events, " Ken Bendalin, liberal arts sophomore, said. " It took time to get things go- ing, but once we did, everyone was cooperative. We all had a good time. I think it went extremely well. " The weekend, however, would not have been the same without a visit from the Children ' s Hospital ' s mas- cot, the kangaroo. All proceeds from Sportsfest were donated to the Children ' s Hospital of Austin at Brackenridge. The 1989 donation was $1000, and ZBT was confident that 1990 ' s donation would match that, if not surpass it. President Larry Dubinski, govern- ment junior, said, " We feel that there is no better way to help the citizens of Central Texas than to do a program that benefits the children of this area.

" : lo do a Zeta Beta Tau 467 M arshmallow Mixer Highlights Week Kristina Adams Melinda Anderson The beginning of the spring se- mester was " always a high point and a very exciting time for the women of Zeta Tau Alpha. For the pledges it marked the be- ginning of the end of their pledge- ship, and for their older sisters, it meant that they would soon be welcoming more girls into their sis- terhood. The week prior to initiation was ZETA TAU ALPHA titled Inspiration Week by the wom- en of Zeta, and the purpose of this tradition was to allow the pledge class to become closer to their pledge sis- ters as well as their " big sisters. " The girls were treated to a week of nighttime events. Members especial- ly enjoyed the nighttime marshmal- low mixer which was held outdoors at the Zilker Park Rock Gardens. The Zetas roasted marshmallows, made smores, ate, drank, talked and enjoyed the night sky and the un- seasonably warm weather of January. " This went so well that it only served to assure me of the quality of this pledge class, " Historian Jilissa Cot- ten, Spanish junior, said. This was just one of the many ac- tivities the girls enjoyed, and every single night of Inspiration Week was eagerly anticipated. " Pledgeship can be an anxiety- ridden time, and we all appreciated the efforts to ease the transition from pledge to active, " pledge LeAnne Haddox, economics freshman, said. The members of Zeta Tau Alpha worked hard on the week and its activities and said they were extreme- ly pleased with the results.

A tumbleweed rolls across the street. The only signs of life are an occasional cactus and the Greek fraternity brothers that hustle to and from authentic saloons and barber shops. What ' s wrong with this picture? Absolutely nothing. Once a month, 13 men from Zeta Psi traveled 30 miles to the small town of Lockhart to spend time ren- ovating the Old West Living Muse- um of the Texas Embassy. " It ' s a good brotherhood event. It ' s work, but we have a good time doing it, " Spring Vice President Mi- chael Cronin, advertising sopho- more, said. " It brings us closer to- gether. " Although in previous years the members would donate proceeds from fundraising events to the Texas Embassy, in 1989 they took a more physically demanding role in their support of the philanthropy through free labor. " Basically we ' ve donated money for renovations. Now we help them ZETA PSI with whatever they need help with. We ' re saving them money by going out there and helping them, " Cronin said. " It makes us feel like were do- ing more when we actually see what ' s going on and the improvements we ' re making. " In addition to the savings, the men offered their cleanup time and con- struction skills to renovate the em- bassy ' s collection of historical Texas architecture. Yet, according to one member, there were intrinsic rewards that out- weighed the time and effort spent at the town. " Everybody gets together out there, working together, accomplish- ing something. So when you ' re done you can say, ' Whew! I can ' t believe it ' s done. I can ' t believe we did this, ' " Larry Williams, mechanical engi- neering sophomore, said. From an era when saloons and jails dotted the untamed landscape of the West and opportunities for heroic feats waited around each corner came hard-working heroes willing to fight for a worthy cause. This was no longer just a legend mentioned in an outdated history book. It was a Texas tradition that Zeta Psi renewed and continued into the 1990s. " It ' s like restoring a ghost town, a piece of American history, " Williams said.

The campus boasted galleries where engineering majors could enjoy fine art, libraries where journalism students could learn more about Texas history and museums where students, faculty, staff and the Austin public could view the first photograph ever taken or the green velvet dress worn by Scarlett O ' Hara in Gone With the Wind. At the Balcones Research Center in North Austin, UT scientists conducted breakthrough research. In the conservation laboratory at the Humanities Research Center, conservators worked to restore damaged books, letters and works of art by such luminaries as Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner. At the Texas Memorial Museum, visitors from all over the city gazed in wonder at ancient coins, specimens of Texas wildlife and rows of sparkling gemstones. Paleontologists worked to restore the skeleton of a prehistoric mosasaur for display. By providing resources such as these for students and the general public, the University gave students an opportunity to experience more than just career training. It became more than just a college; it became a center of learning in every discipline. edited by Robin Mario Mayhall m - 472 Limelight photo by Hannes Hacker Limelight 473 Amanda sighed as she opened the student directory, looking for the ad- dress of the Texas Memorial Museum. What a stupid assignment! She had nev- er even heard of such a place, and now she had to go there to see some sort of dinosaur. Sometimes geology class could be a real pain. There it was: 2400 Trinity. Trinity? Gotta ride the shuttle bus. Notebook and bad attitude firmly in hand, Aman- da boarded the 40 and settled in for what promised to be a boring after- noon. She got off the bus near the Art Building and trudged up Trinity Street, past the strange sculptures of wood and twisted metal that dotted the grass. Looking up, she saw a small square building, plain gray in color, looming over the hill. Man, it even LOOKS bor- ing, she thought grouchily. She walked up the steps of the Texas Memorial Museum and into the foyer, The persistence of memory where a huge relief map of Texas adorned the white-streaked maroon marble wall. She paused momentarily to find her hometown among the map ' s mountains and rivers, then went on into the museum ' s lobby. There she was shocked to find a vaulted ceiling that looked much too high for the building ' s apparent size from the outside. The lobby was dominated by the Goddess of Liberty, the statue that adorned the very top of the state capitol for 98 years, from 1888-1985. Made of 2050 pounds of zinc, the white goddess stood nearly 16 feet tall. Amanda was struck by the imposing statue ' s gro- tesque face especially her huge nos- trils but a sign said her features were exaggerated so they could be seen from the street many feet below. Further inspection of the lobby re- vealed a gift shop containing books, model dinosaurs, Indian dolls, skulls, unusual rocks and a myriad of other souvenirs. In another corner of the room was an impressive array of coins that turned out to be the Swenson Col- lection of Coins and Medallions. But Amanda was most impressed by the case containing old newspapers and calling cards from the time capsule in the bronze Lone Star once held by the god- dess. Conservators from the Human- ities Research Center had carefully pieced together the nearly 100-year-old papers on which the words written in German could still be read. On the way out of the first floor Amanda stopped to play with the in- teractive computer exhibit on vanishing Texas wildlife species. The computer provided instructions on how to use the mouse to find out a wide range of in- formation about different species. story by Robin Mayhall photos by Charles T.

The ex- hibit promised to continue upstairs with displays on the art of the scribe, so Amanda looked quickly and went on to the next room. The next room turned out to be lit- erally wall-to-wall guns. Cases crammed with every kind of firearm, from an- cient English flintlocks and Japanese matchlocks to Colt revolvers, lined the walls and crowded the middle of the floor. Amanda pressed her hands to the glass and stared in fascination at Asian flintlock muskets with beautiful, ornate- ly carved stocks and barrels. One mid- 17th century German gun combined a rapier, flintlock pistol and battleaxe into one fearsome-looking weapon. Amanda decided t o move on in search of the dinosaur thing she was supposed to be here for. She headed downstairs first, following the winding maroon marble staircase to the first floor. The first thing she saw was a case labeled Extraterrestrial Visitors. Intrigued, she went to the case and found it to be full of meteorites. She then read the sign that labeled this the Earth Sciences floor, which was being redesigned for installation of the exhibits " The History of the Earth " and " Geological Processes. " Several displays along these lines filled the rooms, starting with a case filled with agates dozens of beautiful stones decorated with weird designs and bril- liant colors -- from Chihuahua, Mex- ico. Next to that was a display on caves that featured small, realistic models of cave interiors, stalactites and stalagmites.

She was dis- appointed to find that its natural color was actually red-brown; it was heat- treated to gain its aquamarine color. Amanda finally tore herself away and proceeded down a short flight of stairs to the main floor of the exhibit. Several educational exhibits on rocks filled the center of the room.

The huge skulls and bones of North American Proboscidea (elephant-like animals) such as the American mast- odon and the mammuthus jeffersonii adorned one side of the room, and skel- etons of large prehistoric cats and shells of sea animals were tucked into the cor- ner. On the other side of the room was an array of winged creatures, dominat- ed by the huge wing of a Texas Pter- osaur. In the back of the room in a large glass case, Amanda found two frightful- looking creatures with huge skeletal spines sticking up from their back- bones, somewhat like the fins of a sail- fish. These animals turned out to be reptiles called edaphosaurus and dime- trodon. She was on the right track; the mosasaur had to be around here some- where. She was right. Behind all the other exhibits in a small corridor was an ex- hibit on the reconstruction of the On- ion Creek Mosasaur. A small model of the creature was in a case with the re- constructed skull, and through windows visitors could watch conservators at work piecing the bones together. A sign indicated that the mosasaur was a giant marine lizard that swam in the oceans of the Late Cretaceous era about 70 million years ago, while the last of the dinosaurs still walked the earth.

On the other side of the bird room was a series of realistically painted di- oramas showing native Texas birds in their natural habitats.

Leaving the bird room, Amanda walked back down the hall past the snake and lizard displays, passing two cases that really didn ' t seem to belong there. Curious, she paused to look at them and discovered that they depicted the University in 1885 and 1921. To Amanda ' s amusement, the University in 1885 seemed to consist of only one cathedral-like building in the spot where the Tower sits today. The build- ings had proliferated by 1921, but still stretched across only the few acres of land between Guadalupe and Speedway and between 21st and 24th.

Goodfellows 48 1 around another corner and read a de- scription of the next exhibit: Texas Bi- otic Provinces. According to the sign, wildlife distribution in Texas was roughly divided into seven geograph- ical areas with different climates and plantlife. In the small room following, large glass cases contained specimens of animals and birds from each of the sev- en provinces, from jaguarundi and skunks to bison and deer. The bison were a bit of a disappointment to Amanda; she had always thought of bi- son as huge, menacing creatures, but the bull, cow and calf on display in the Texas Memorial Museum weren ' t even taller than she was. They looked pos- itively mild-mannered, in fact, with their soft shaggy fur and brown eyes. One exhibit, the one on the Chihuahuan province, was labelled as still in preparation; it held fewer an- imals placed with less precision, but oth- erwise it seemed fine to Amanda. She did wonder a little about the two large pieces of wood that lay seemingly at random in the hallway, though.

Passing these relics, Amanda climbed a winding flight of stairs to the fourth and last floor of the museum. The first objects that met her eyes were pots. Dozens of pots, jugs, vases and other examples of Indian pottery were crammed into cases in the entrance hallway. Each case showed the pottery of a different Central or South Amer- ican culture, with maps showing the lo- cation where they lived and descrip- tions of their agricultural habits. In other rooms on this floor were more extensive exhibits of Indian cul- tures from American Indians to Eski- mos. In one wall were set dioramas showing Indian housing types; other cases displayed arrowheads, tools, carved figurines, clothing, and more, PLAINS DWELLER: A North American bison stalks through his natural habitat in a TMM dis- play.

In the center of this floor was a room devoted to the last exhibit, the one promised several floors below in the lobby. " Science and Scribes: Calli- graphic Expressions by Capital City Scribes - - 8th Annual Exhibition, " read the sign. The walls were strewn with amazingly beautiful works of art depicting great moments in science through creative calligraphy and wa- tercolor. One work gave Einstein ' s warning about radiation; another celebrated his theory of relativity in exuberant black and gold. One apocalyptic painting was mostly swathed in black, with a small red and white streak at the bottom containing Robert Oppenheimer ' s words at the first atomic bomb test. The physicist quoted Bhagavad Gita as he said, " I am become death, shatterer of worlds. " But Amanda ' s favorite work was a less fearsome one. Written in lovely, neat white letters on black paper was this Ralph Waldo Emerson quotation: " The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at mid- night has been present like an arch- angel at the creation of light and of the world. " Amanda slowly made her way down the long flights of stairs to the lobby floor and paused in the foyer to get out her umbrella. While she had been in the museum, the afternoon had worn away and it had begun raining again. She shook her head in amusement as she thought of the time spent gazing at dead snakes and Indian pottery. Then she looked up and saw, carved into the wall, an inscription that said the museum had been authorized by the 44th Texas Legislature. She was glad those men and wom- en had made that authorization and glad she had taken advantage of it on this day. As she made her way toward the 40 bus stop on Medical Arts, she thought she ' d have to come back an- other time and take one more look at the precious stones. Just a short visit, of course.
