John Morris. Vice Chancellor lor Academic Affairs
Who in charge here and what do we call him, anyway? This was an appropriate question for a time as the administrative structure at Eau Claire was reorganized. The repositioning and retitling was caused by the departure of President I eonnrd Mans, who became the State University representative on a merger committee. After several name changes it was apparently decided that Haas’ successor, Dr. Richard Hibbard, would have the title of Chancellor. Dr. John Morris moved from Dean of Arts and Sciences to N ice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. These designations were on an interim basis, as Haas may return after completing work on the merger.

36Imagine a scientist in the distant future describing specimens recovered from the year 1972.
“Specimen A is a gaseous mixture with small amounts of oxygen, lots of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, numerous particles known os soot, ash, or smoke particles, and several unidentified components.
“Specimen B is a liquid. It has some umounts of hydrogen and oxygen, but is is mainly a combination of oil and liquid gas, several chemicals in the phosphate family, human wastes, and other purticles identified only as industrial wastes.
“Specimen C is a solid and is rather grainy in texture. It is basically composed of soil but has numerous deposits of chemical pesticides, human wastes, and a wide variety of substances classified us ’gurbage.’
"These three specimens were known in 1972 os air, water and land.”
Winter Carnival was gone a long time ago. Homecoming activities have taken a new direction to induce more participation. Big name concerts of assorted genre have failed to break even at the box office.
The Social Commission has made numerous efforts to ascertain exactly what students want. New ideas have been tried ... old ideas have been revived ... it just seems that there is very little today which would have enough appeal to draw large numbers of students.
One can only guess at the reasons for the lack of interest. Could it be just plain apathy? Could it be that students today seurch only for those things that have true "relevance?" Or could it be that beer is cheaper and dial’s what everybody does anyway . . . even if they don’t like the taste.

The drug scene in Eau Claire followed a pattern which was becoming widespread throughout the country. The scene was quieter, the debates and discussion had simmered, but the usage was increasing. Marijuana became a familiar ingredient at more and more parties despite the big bust of last spring.
While federal authorities stepped up their war to cut off the supply of drugs coming into the U. S., numerous liberal legislators argued for the legalization of marijuana. Their argument was based on studies which seem to indicate that marijuana is neither harmful nor addictive. Too many legislators, however, refused to buy this until further studies could be done.

With 147 courses under four categories (communication skills, the natural environment, mun's individual and social behavior, man’s culture and heritage) the general studies program went into effect for the 71-72 school year. The key points for the program are freedom of choice and flexibility. The program also improved the departments and separated general education from professional studies. Under the plan, students take at least 30 and no more than 40 credits in the above four categories. One cannot take the same course for general studies as well as for a major or minor and receive credit for both.

The Eau Claire Area Ecology Action group moved their recycling center to a larger building on Railroad Street. The building is used as a collection point for cans, bottles, and
papers. When enough materials arc gathered they are then taken to various places to be recycled. The center has been operating on an all-volunteer basis.ECAEA members sort the materials (opposite) brought to the recycling center by ecology-minded people (Mi).

The Kan C la ire-C rambling exchange program is an attempt to gel a cross fertilization of life in other parts of the country, both socially and culturally. Each semester four students from each school arc involved in the program.
flic program gives the students a new perspective. The northern white student is suddenly a minority student in a predominantly black southern school. Tire (•rambling student, ns well us l eing at an almost ull-white school, is also in a minority situation among blacks, due to his southern background.
Kau Claire students who spent the fall semester at (Gambling were Steven Linton, Christine Saito, Gregory Brass, ami Jonette Slabcy. (.rambling sent three students to Kau Claire, Nathaniel Arvic, Jessie Walker, and Linda Grunt.
The exchange program, now in its second year has been rated a fantastic experience by the participants so far.
so70Esther A rut a, English instnictor. has been at Eau Claire since 1968 and teaches black literature.
Until recently, there was little or no black literature included in many English textbooks. Mrs. Aratu says that today there are a growing number of books available for the teaching of black literature. There urc even books like American Ethnic Writing, “which includes works by many minority writers such us chicanos, blacks, orientals und Indians.
While black literature was always being written (“You can trace back a long ways, back even to oral origins”), it is just now coming into increasingly wider circulation.
Mrs. Aratu feels a problem area now is not to limit the teaching of black literature to a concentration on American blacks. “There is a tremendous amount of sophisticated black writing in Portugese, French, Dutch, Spanish, English, ami other languages.
Mrs. Arutn said she, herself, was “totally ignorant of world history, especially the Caribbean, until recently when she began to explore the area more tltoroughly.
"In fact," she said, “we may have to change the title of Afro-American literature to include black writings in Spanish, Portugese, and other origins. Black isn’t just here, it’s world wide."
Mrs. Arata feels that a basic consideration facing black writers today is that, "If they don’t overthrow whiteness, they won’t overthrow hatred."
She said u main underlying theme of contemporary blnck literature is “Not to be assimilated" by white culture. "If an African boy goes assay to get an education and returns to his osvn country and shows that he has been 'assimilated,' he will not be accepted by his countrymen, she explained.
In relation to "overthrowing white ncss," and establishing a personal identity, Mrs. Arata feels, "The black man must establish an awareness of black, but then transcend that to he included in the brotherhood of humanity."
She svams, hosvever. of falling into the trup of tokenism, svherc “All block literature is good. It must be able to stand on its own literary merits."
Mrs. Arata also thinks that there will be a time when black literature, such as poetry, will be included in a course such as American Poetry.
Mrs. Arata says her past experiences huve helped her in understanding ami teaching black literature. “Maybe it was the way I grew up, living and playing with the French, Italians, Chinese, Bohemians, and blacks.”
About her earlier teaching experience she says, “After the first few days you forget who’s black and who's white and start teaching people."
75The setting could have been his 2'7-acre plot of land on Pigeon Lake where he plants his camper every spring. It could have been his home, where he likes to forget about music and enjoy his family. It could have been in the classroom where an experience in music is transferred from instructor to student. Indeed, it could have been in concert where, "the greatest understanding of music comes through active participation in performance."
In all these settings, Morris Hayes, Eau Claire Choral Director, could have been found. Rut he was found in his office where he could not remember the phone being so non-intemiptivc. Hayes is a busy man. Besides having the heaviest student contact load on campus, he is president-elect of the American Choral Directors’ Association.
He is honored thnt his colleagues have chosen him as the spokesman for the over 6,000 members of the association. Hayes also feels a personal satisfaction in the growth of the University cltoral program. His courses
arc all taken as electives, so students take them because they want to. He cstiinutcs that one out of every eight students on campus is involved in the University music program and a greater percentage of these are nonmusic majors.
According to Hayes. Eau Claire’s choral program is structured to give each student a variety of music experiences.
Hayes believes that Eau Claire’s choral groups are as good as any in the state or throughout the midwest. “There are very few schools whose choral groups have developed a reputation sufficient to attract the top
people in the choral field as guest conductors.” He was referring to Robert Shaw and Roger Wagner, both of whom appeared with the choral groups during the year. I laves added that to the best of his knowledge, Eau Claire is the first university in the state of Wisconsin to perform a major work with the Minnesota Symphony.
About schools, Hayes fears today's universities are producing only specialists. He feels the student should involve himself in other areas than his major field of study. Hayes dares, “Try to live one week without music or some other form of art."
Morris Hayes is an associate professor of music ami has been at Eau Claire since 1966. He is also the choral director.
7677Dr. Waller Thoreson is a sociology professor and has been at Kau Claire since 1969. He is also a Democratic candidate for the third congressional district, lie presented his views to students through an Arena of Ideas speech and discussion.
Thoreson criticized the Nixon administration heavily, emphasizing problems of the economy. He specifically attacked the administration attitude toward organized labor, farm policy, the pay board, and the military.
On the payboard, Thoreson said he felt the wage-price controls, "should have been across the board, ami not selective." He stressed fighting inflation by also controlling interest rates and profits.
Thoreson added that the payboard is “obviously failing." He expressed an interesting theory concerning this area. He said that Nixon, particularly by his vLsit to the AFL-CIO convention. was setting up organized labor as a “scapegoat for the failure of his economic programs." Thoreson stipu-
lated that Nixon knew well that he would receive a cold, if not hostile, reception at the convention. Thus, he (Nixon) c-ould later blame labor for the failure of the program because of labor's “failure to co-operate."
Concerning tbc farm program. Thoreson said it was a "poor program ... especially under President Nixon." He pointed out that under the current administration farmers have been paid prices that fell from 75 per cent to 66 per cent compared to their expenses.
Thoreson was asked about amnesty for draft evaders. He replied that the power to grant amnesty lies solely with the President. He felt, however, that since the U.S. was involved in an undeclared awl "immoral svar . . . anyone who tries to avoid involvement should be granted full amnesty."
Thoreson also thinks the draft itself is unconstitutional. He said it is really just a way to draft first from among the lower economic classes, lie felt that to have a successful military (defensive. not offensive) there must be people "from every economic background."Barbara Rolland is an instructor of foreign languages and has been at Eau Claire since 1960.
Mrs. Holland feels that the study of foreign languages today is quite relevant. It not only helps to satisfy u natural curiosity, but also opens up vast job opportunities. She said that the combinations of a foreign language with journalism, photography, or business. for example, open doors to unlimited careers. "One shouldn't he satisfied with working in Ills immediate surroundings when there ure opportunities all over the world." She noted that it doesn't take an exceptional person to be eligible for these offerings, only a sincere curiosity and enthusiasm to explore the field.
“Studying abroad is an excellent idea," said Mrs. Rolland. "It not only develops your vocabulary and language skills, hut also gives a first-hand opportunity to learn about the culture." She believes that spending one semester abroad during the junior year is more profitable than a year here, since one will make better use of the time and accomplish much more. Such a trip, she felt, reinstates a stu-
dent’s enthusiasm for Ills studies and gives him a new outlook on his career. She said, "It is especially important for a student to experience the country. Its language is his goal. This gives the student a concrete basis from which to teach."
Mrs. Rolland is also involved in foreign student affairs. She feels that foreign students play an important part in the university. Through them, one is able to obtain first-hand information on their cultures and ideas. She said that foreign students do go through a period of adjustment, and some get depressed, but this usuallv doesn't last too long. They soon become involved in the university just like any other student. She says the Chinese students have a strong program here which seems to enable them to adjust faster. There is also the Association of International Students on campus which helps acquaint the foreign students with American students. Mrs. Rolland feels strongly that each foreign student should have an American “brother" or “sister” to help him become adjusted.
82Dr. Ray Babb is an associate pro lessor of psychology and fins been at Kau Claire since 1970. Babb Ls also on the Board of Directors for the Community Learning Center.
“Psychology could be a very enjoyable, enlightening, profitable experience. Unfortunately we kill the student before he begins,” Babb said. It was a reference to the general psych course, which Babb feels is too comprehensive.
"This approach turns students off, not on." Babb thinks students should be able to take specific courses first ami follow up with the general courses. He added that there should be recommended courses instead of required ones, which Is the case now.
Babb says that there could be a lot of other interesting and valuable course offerings of real value to the student. He suggested the following: Psychology of Suicide. Psychology of Play, Psychology of Power, Psychology of Human Evolution, Psychology of Psychosomatic , and Psychology of Psychopharmacology (drug use).
Concerning education in general.
Babb says, “There is not enough recognition of the student ns being capable of determining his direction und his method of pursuing thut direction." Babb adds that the entire school structure should he exactly reversed. That is, students would make the basic decisions about their educational needs, teachers would tailor the classes to those needs, and the administration and school board would act and provide accordingly.
Babb also thinks a major problem area of education is having too many teachers and administrators who are not up to par. He added that the current surplus of teachers will probably allow for better screening of teaching prospects. However, he noted that there is still no method of getting poor teachers with established jobs out of the system. "The tenure system is one of the biggest drawbacks; it protects the incompetent. It is u fraud.”
As far as his own teaching is concerned, Babb favors neither grades nor final exams. He would prefer a system that would eliminate grades entirely, ami put all courses on a plain
credit or no-credit basis. Under this arrangement, the student and instructor svould determine what the student is to do, and if the student does these things, he receives credit for the course.
Babb has also tried the contract system for gruding. but he finds it “not flexible enough. Many times a student will want to change directions in the middle of the semester and his contract will not allow the needed flexibility."
About teaching methods Babb says, “lecturing is archaic and primitive; dialogue and expression are important. If a teacher is going into a classroom to read his notes all semester, why not have him type them up and hand them out to the students the first day of class?"
How does Babb think the system can be changed? “Students have a tremendous amount of power,” he said. "It's there if they want to use it."
Babb doesn't blame students for being non-coneerned. “Apathy should not be blamed on students, they’ve been subordinated for so long."
84Having graduated from Eau Claire with a double major in English and Speech, Virginia llirsch found the move back a friendly and familiar one. Tvc always liked the people and I know the town,” she said.
Miss llirsch continued her education at the University of Kansas at Lawrence where she received her master's in Children's Theatre and Costuming. She is one of the most recent additions to the Eau Claire Speech Department, which she says she “enjoys as well as the very enthusiastic students who are involved in the department."
As head of the Children's Theatre at the university. Miss llirsch will direct this spring's production of “Livin' de Life.” Besides these duties, she works extensively on the other productions, particularly with costume design and construction.
Miss llirsch, a Milwaukee native, will be spending this summer as she spent last summer; working on her dissertation. Her subject is again costuming. with special emphasis on Hollywood designer Edith Head, who has won several academy awards for her costumes.
Commenting on the future of the theatre. Miss llirsch was optimistic. “Right now there's a trend toward supporting the arts. People arc getting away from their living rooms and TV sets."
Miss llirsch hopes to add a costume design course to the Speech Department at Eau Claire, and is looking forward to continuing her profession in this “beautiful part of the world.”✓
Henry I.ippold is an assistant pro-lessor of journalism, lie hat been at Eau Claire since January of 1972.
About the relationship between journalism education and the professional media IJppold feels that. There is no education that totally prepares a student for a job in the mass media. The vagaries of events and the growing public thirst for information conspire to remind the stu-
dent of journalism of how little he knows about so many things. Nevertheless, this student is on the road to success when he realizes that he must know- at least enough about a broad panoply of subjects to recognize something new- svhen it comes along.”
I.ippold thinks that an appropriate mixture of courses in liberal arts and sciences, along with professional training. has provided a successful background for many students. “Many journalism students would load up on the professional courses if they could. We all tend to do what we like to do. and. in the academic setting, sve do well at what we like to do. It takes some forcefulness on the part of academic advisors to convince the student of the importance of a rounded education that includes the spectrum of literature ami the social, political, and physical sciences."
“There was a time.” I.ippold said, “when a university educated newspaperman was an object of scorn around the office. That day has passed. Nowdays the student’s education is a necessary and vital instrument in obtaining full time employment."
I.ippold stressed the importance of obtaining practical experience in journalism, but cautioned against becoming so involved in that experience that it would cause classroom work to suffer.
I.ippold feels that one of the mujor problem areas of joumnlism education today is keeping pace with the rapid technological advances, ami providing the student with adequate facilities.
Concerning the professional media Lippold says, “Criticism of the media is legion. But unless there is a threat of governmental suppression or control, the medin should not fear criticism.”
I.ippold sees the main shortcoming of mass media os a lack of in-depth, investigative reporting, “due primarily to the time restrictions of deadlines.”
“There is so much to know these days,” suid I.ippold. “so much to be reported. The responsibility of the media is unbounded.”
Senator Wayne Morse opened the UW-EC Koruin Scries with the timely and controversial issue, "The President Has Too Much Power." In the year of the price-freeze and of continued Asiatic and Middle East entanglements, the Senator warned of an America that would be a “totalitarian state cloaked in democratic phraseology."
He carefully traced major executive decisions from 1953, including the Formosa ami Tonkin resolutions, and showed how the American public had been deceived.
Neither discouraged nor disillusioned after his 24-ycar battle in the Senate against this type of usurpation of constitutional powers, the 71-year-old Senator concluded the Forum by proclaiming, "There is a strong youth movement to run me for Senate in 72 . . . and I just may do that."
Will Rogers U.S.A.
Will Rogers, comic philosopher, was brought to life by actor James Whitmore in a December Forum.
Through Whitmore’s use of original anecdotes and sayings of Rogers, the audience laughed and thought themselves into an understanding of the philosopher’s humor and wisdom.
Whitmore's selections included discourses on such subjects as war, (“a country ought not to start u war until they’ve paid for the lost one,”) politics, ("I’m not a member of any organized political party ... I'm a democrat,”) and the sexes, ("I'm partial to the ladies... I come from one, ya know.”) Through these and other pussages the uudience learned what Franklin Roosevelt meant when he said, “. . . he helped a nation to smile.”Rev. Andrew Young
The black man's faith has always been a “faith in spite of" — in spite of slavery, in spite of racism. So said Rev. Andrew Young, vice-president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, in a Forum speech in the University Arena. The speech was part of Black Culture Week activities.
Rev. Young explained “faith in spite of" in the context of the history of the civil rights movement and present day black problems.
Rev. Young was concerned about the creeping apathy of students about civil rights l ccausc they lack a long term perspective of "Just where we arc in the battle for liberty and justice in this country." He was, however, optimistic about the “forces of good will in America," if the black man is willing to continue his struggle for freedom.
Norman Leach, executive director of the World Federalist Youth, was one of the speakers in the Forum Special series.
Leach spoke about the need for establishing a world community to solve many of our international problems. Establishing a world government could be used as a stepping stone to achieve this goal and such a government would have more power than the present UN General Assembly, he said. From this point it would only be a matter of becoming a part of a total world community instead of just an individual nation, Leach contended.

F.au Claire fraternities became involved in u second semester controversy which was carried out by means of a series of letters appearing in The Spectator.”
The battle of written words was initiated by a letter from Bruce Caldc, Interfraternity Council president, to “The Spectator" in which Caldc criticized the editorial policy of the paper. Calde questioned the lack of space given to greeks and other campus organizations for which copy was made available.
The next Issue of The Spectator" brought n rebuttal from Dale C. Gross, lie questioned the practice of “blackballing'’which (supposedly) acts as a ban to keep certain students from gaining admittance to organizations. He ulso questioned the lack of non-white fraternity members.
The Cross letter drew two replies from Creek members. Thomas J. Kuzma criticized the Gross letter as being "too broad." He then defended the APO fraternity by listing all of their worthwhile service projects. He also stnted that APO is open to “male students of every race." Michael F. Schmidt wrote that fraternities were just os available to minority students as anyone. He speculated that the lack of minority students in fraternities could be related to the small percentage of such students on campus.
In closing, Schmidt questioned the new-spaper policy of giving more space to the minority students than to fraternity organizations, since both were approximately the same size.
These letters brought a reply from Michael Griffin. He suggested that the reason minority students were not attracted to fraternities was because the fraternities were basically geared to rural white society and culture. Griffin also criticized fraternity projects as being irrelevant and suggested that “more realistic" programs be adopted.
Griffin's letter drew yet another reply, this time from APO member Robert J. Tessen. Tesscn defended fraternity service projects and called them more relevant than ever. He also suggested that frutemities take a point of consideration from Griffin’s letter and try to incorporate programs geared to the future. He said that since fraternities arc now searching for new-direct ioas, he would welcome any constructive suggestions, ideas, and criticisms from Griffin.
103Sigma Tau Delta
Zeta Theta is the UW-Eau Claire local chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, a national English honor organization. The group is open to English majors and minors with a minimum 3.0 grade point average in English and a second-semester sophomore standing.
The organization promotes creative writing and appreciation of literature. A typical meeting involves discussing literary works, viewing a film at the Wall or hearing speakers. The group also contributes to Sigma Tau Delta’s "Rectangle." a national creative writing magazine.
In addition to their literary meetings, Zcta Theta holds book sales und plans trips to the Cuthrie in Minneapolis.
Sigma Alpha lota
Sigma Alpha Iota is a professional music charter on campus for women only. This organization is a service group whose main purpose is to collect old music sheets and books to give to various charity organizations. They also give tours through the Fine Arts and raise money for the purchase of music in braille.
Sigma Alpha Iota helps students who are studying in Music Therapy with a scholarship based on their performance and financial need.HOUSING
In hearings with the new Housing Committee students aired some of their problems with off-campus housing. Some of the most frequent complaints were as follows: too many students crowded into a small space: inadequate heat and or plumbing facilities: not enough electrical outlets, cracked or peeling paint and general run down conditions which the landlord refused to repair: difficulty with contract agreements; und difficulty in getting back money deposits.Landlords
In a Housing Committee hearing directed particularly toward landlord problems, numerous landlords also aired their views. A chief concern was the City Housing Code which, in some areas restricts the number of non-related persons who can live in one housing unit. Landlords felt that this was not only a current problem with available housing, but also discouraged realtors from building more student housing. Some stated that the Code was not being enforced uniform-ily. Some landlords also felt that a major problem was the large amount of physical damage caused by student renters. Security deposits and contract agreements were another problem area.
A new Housing Committee, choired by Judge Thomas Bartend (lett) was set up to try to resolve student-landlord problems.
Ferranle and Teichcr received two standing ovations after a two-hour performance of their practiced art of perfect synchronization. The Eau Claire audience, nearly 2,000, listened attentively to the enchanting selections of a "West Side Story" medley, "Midnight Cowboy,” and many others including an original composition entitled “African Echoes.”
At the concerts intermission Sutherland's candidates Odise Kennel and Linda Sendlcbaek (right) were crowned king und queen of Homecoming 1971.
110In an attempt to pet prenter participation and interest in the homecominp activities, a varsity show was held this year instead of events such as the jam session. Student vocalists performed, as well as the Eau Claire YMCA judo team.
Kids and dops and cheers and all-around campus and community involvement made up the homecominp parade. The UW-EC marchinp hand was the first of 23 bands in the parade and also entertained at halftime.113INTERNATIONAL FOLK FAIR

Even a puzzled kid
Can soon forget
That which puzzled him.
And join his friends
For fun and games;
It must be neat.
To be a kid.

Approximately 1,700 fans cheered Eau Claire to their first NAIA win at the Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City.
The faas took over after the game, leaving the liquor stores in KC in short supply, 'fire Blugold hackers then flocked to Allis Plaza, a park located directly across from the nuditoruin. Students danced and sat around the fountain drinking and discussing the Eau Claire victory.
After a while the KC policemen blew their whistles and it was clean-up-thc-park time. The students then swurmed to one hotel or another until the next day and another pep rally.
Another victory, followed by another party, and a crowded Allis Plaza were the ingredients of the next Blu-gold celebration.
After the parties came some sleep, and the Blugold fans packed themselves back into the hotels.
With the third win came more celebrating as the students again rushed to purchase refreshments and gather in Allis Plaza.
The Kansas City police were very lenient in permitting students to drink in the park, on the condition that the fans behave responsibly and clean up all their bottles and cans.
One officer said, “What we would have to say about the Eau Claire kids would tnkc a long time to say, because during the past week they have been fantastic. True, it's against the law to drink in public, but we decided to let them go ahead rather than locking them up. We treat them right and ask them to do something ami they'll do it."
Another policeman added, “The school at Eau Claire can really be proud of the students and the wny they acted."
On Friday, u pep rally led by the cheerleaders and stuntmen was continues! after the Blugold victory in the usual form.
Saturday afternoon the students, led by the cheerleaders, psyched themselves up for the big game.
But then came the big disappointment. Almost ‘1.000 fans looked about in disbelief, some filing onto the floor with tears in their eyes. The Blugold backers just wanted to be with their team in the final, depressing moments for a bunch of nice guys. Damn nice guys.

2823HIAISTaming of the Shrew
“We . . . with frightful disrespect, changed and altered and cut and hent the Bard, with the idea of having fun with him ourselves." With this in mind, the University Theatre presented a sort of Shakespeare for the masses. Director Wil Denson added new dimensions to the shrew, the shrew tamer, and the other characters and subtracted a few of the original “thees" and “forsoothes." All this, based on the belief that “if we (the players) enjoy doing it, an audience will enjoy seeing it."Hot Verse
Lines from tire famous poetry of T.S. Eliot and Emily Dickinson were combined with the modem verse of poets such as Langston Hughes and E.E. Cummiop in the October produ-lion of "Hot Verse." Special choreography and lighting techniques added to the variety of moods created by the actors and the poems. A feeling of living poetry was conveyed by the simple, hut imaginative us of interpreters theatre.A Doll House
Nearly a hundred years ago Henrik Ibsen wrote a play based on a theme that to this day has not been outdated. The play is “A Doll House" ami the theme is basically the modern middle-class conception and or misconception of marriage. Nora Helmcr is a doll-like character who has been shaped by her father; her husband. Ton-aid, and her surroundings. However, as the play progresses. Nora is somewhat tragically made to realize her situation and the change within her begins. The action builds as Nora's new-born character emerges. She is eventually set free to discover her real self after she literally shuts out her husband and family. The play ends os Ton-aid is pleading with Nora to stay. She exits and the final sound is her slamming the door on her past.
2S8Hansel and Gretel
The children’s opera “Haase! and Cretcl” was performed during December as a holiday treat for both young and old. The opera was directed by David Morgan in conjunction with the music department.
289You Know When the
I Can’t Hear You Water’s Running
"You Know 1 Can’t Hear You When the Water Running" had a subject matter that was frankly, sex! The play was actually four one-act plays.
“The Shock of Recognition" was a spoof on the popular exploitation of nudity on the stage.
“The Footsteps of I)ovcs” was about a middle-aged couple in the process of changing from a double bed to twin beds. It takes place in a furniture store.
“Ill Be Home for Christmas" is a more serious play dealing with how to tell the children about sex.
“I’m Herbert" depicts a charming couple in their 70’s who nre recalling experiences with their previous mates and each other. Problems arise when each muses over intimacies shared, only to discover they were shared with someone else.
290Don Juan in Hell
“Don Juan in Hell" was written by George Bernard Shaw. It was performed in a type of drama called “Readers Theatre." The cast, dressed in appropriate tones of black, carried their scripts with them throughout the play. 'Hie purpose of this was to make the viewer concentrate on what was being said instead of the acting. It frees the imagination.
Don Juan finds Hell vers- l oring and wishes to go to Ileusen to fulfill his life. Dona Ana is appalled to find herself in Hell—after all she deserves nothing hut the best and hasn’t done anything wrong to deserve to be put in such a place. The statue who is also Dona Ana’s father, visits Hell every so often because he finds 1 leaven vers- (raring. Nothing exciting ever happens there. The Devil finds the statue’s attitude very refreshing as the two of them proceed to convince the others that they are wrong in their desire.
During their discussion of the merits of Heaven and Hell they bring out several philosophies of life. The most prominent one dealt with the relationships between the sexes.
291A different type of production was introduced at Eau Claire through the use ot the television equipment in the Fine Arts building. Students produced entire shows tor use at later dates on a local TV station.
293Backstage At a Play
ll takes a lot ol behind-the-scenes otlort to produce a play. Most ol the manpower comes from Speech department I acuity or students enrolled in stagocraft and lighting classes Wayne Wollort (above) cuts a special wooden design. Virginia Hirsch (right), costume designer lor "Taming ol the Shrew." pieces together one ol the elaborate dresses.
Merger Combines Wisconsin “U”s
As of October 8. 1971, WSU-Eau Claire became University of Wiscon-sin-Eau Claire when Gov. Patrick Lucey signed the merger bill. It will continue under that name with only the Board of Hegents merged. The central administrations of the UW and WSU systems will continue as at present until July 1, 1973, when the Board of Hegents will decide whether the merger should be finalized.
The main points that will be considered about the merger are funding for educational programs, equal pay for teachers with similar duties, faculty tenure, class room utilization, the role of teaching assistants in the university system and instructors in the state university system, tuition and transfer policies.
There were many pros and cons to the merger but during this temporary period they will be studied and by 1973 vve will know whether the merger was just a name change or a finalized measure with one central governing l oard running the university system.

Frankly. I think you're suffering from an identity crisis.
The enactment of the eighteen year old voting legislation opened a new market for politicians. With nn eye on the primaries as well as the November elections many campaigners came to Eau Claire to solicit young voters. This gave students a first-hand look at politics in uction.
McGovern aides found it a good time to do some film-making and distributed a handy pile of .McGovern placards to unsuspecting students.
Humphrey men wisely scheduled their appeurance in the Blugold, knowing only a small turnout would fill the room easily. I HIM himself must have garnered droves of student votes with this tidbit of leftist philosophy, "The two most important words nrc love and peace."
Muskic had been slated to appear in Schofield Auditorium, but student protest gained a re-scheduling in the Arena, where there would be ample seating. Mysteriously, large groups of local high schoolers suddenly arrived on the scene to fill the Arena.
Lindsay flew into Wisconsin to have his picture taken hesidc a cow.
Of course, the candidates did present their views on most issues, but the political tactics employed enlightened many students prior to their first voting experience.
Senator McGovern (above) addresses students in Schofield Auditorium. Senator Humphrey (right) contort with aides prior to his appearanco in the Blugold.

A New Look with an Old Twist
The face of Water Street is getting n different look. Two important developments are promoting the Water Street business district to students. First is the influx of new, student-oriented businesses. Within the past year new places such as River City Records. Space on Delivery, The Ice Cream Parlor, and the Brat Kabin base opened for business. Trucker’s l’nion and Missing I.ink have moved to the heart of Water Street. The Blue Front is gone; replaced by Lord Jeffrey’s Pub, and Horry’s Bar has become Girolamo's. The second big development on the Water Street scene is the plan to redesign the storefronts to give the entire business district a kind of Old Town look.
isn't it heroic?
310The End of the World
There wouldn’t foe any war
if there weren’t
any guns, tanks, or bombs.
There wouldn’t be any war if there weren’t power-hungry people.
There wouldn’t be any war if there weren’t any political boundaries and national land claims.
There wouldn’t be any war if there weren’t people trying to shove their ideas down other people’s throats and into their minds.
There wouldn’t be any war if there wasn’t anyone to fight it.
Because of war there may not Ik. anyone left to fight.314YOUTH
One of the most far-reaching pieces of legislation passed by the Wisconsin legislature was the 18-year-old rights bill. The bill, passed in February, was signed into law in mid-March by Governor Patrick Luccy.
Now, IS-year-olds not only have the right to vote, hut are also guaranteed the full rights of adults.
Tlie hill will allow lS-year-olds to purchase liquor. This may dramatically affect the tavern business in Wisconsin, as it could mean a boom for the liquor outlets and a bust for the beer bars. Also included in the bill is the provision that 18-year-olds arc now legally responsible for their actions — including signing contracts. Another aspect is that males can now mom- at age 18 without parental consent. Tlie previous age was 21 for men and remains 18 for women.
"Lowering the age of maturity is really just a test case... Next we're going to try to legislate morality.”ZENITH It's been a long. hard. road to follow. You've put in some long, tough hours.
You’ve worked your way up from the l ottom. You didn’t have anything when you started, but now you've got a l eautiful new 3-bedroom house, two cars, a motor boat, job security, a wife, and four kids. You’ve reached the pinnacle of success. You’ve truly reached the ultimate, the zenith, of material happiness. But you forgot one thing along the way. You forgot all about reaching the zenith in human relations. You can’t relate to other people as human beings. You may think you’re at the peak, but really you’re in the same place you were when you started out. Meaningful communication is the place where it’s really at, and that’s where you’ll find the true zenith.INDEX

Like tree .
we started as seeds and just os seeds sprout into different trees, we develop seporote personalities.
In many ways we are similar, because we both thrive on the sunshine of success, yet, we need the rain of failure to go on growing, just os,
As the seeds flourished,
their fight for the ground which would determine their existence led to a rivalry of who would live
and who would die.
We too had to fight for existence just like the seeds but, unlike the seeds,
our rivalries led to a deeper understanding of each other ond thus we both survived.
We crossed the first crossroads of college and therefore, earned the right to go on.
