Editor-in-Chief Layout Editor Copy Editor Photo Editor Business ManagerThis book is different. We admit it. The year 1974 was more than smiling people walking to classes. There were issues like tenure and the credibility of government. We sat in classes with our coats on becausethe heat was turned down to conserve fuel.
The school year began in August and ended in May. So does this book.
And no matter what the year brought, it was unique.
Individual, just as we are.

For most people it was just another hot August day. but for others it was a nightmare or a dream come true.
Registration always seems to work that way. Either everything goes along without a hitch or else the only thing anyone seems to be saying Is. "I'm sorry, but that section Is closed."
The fall term this year was no exception. Registration began August 22 and ended on August 24. By that time everyone was glad it was over—at least until January.
Although registration is usually a hassle, it gets the job done. Enrollment at UW-EC increased by 187. bringing the number of students to 8.888.
Registration: the grind starts again
9Dorm’s cup-acity runneth over
After all the boxes and bundles of moving were cleared away, many students found themselves In "overflow" housing. Oak Ridge. Murray. Bridgman and The Towers housed 138 students in lounges, according to Dr. Douglas Hallatt. director of housing.
To ease some of the demand. Governors Hall was converted to a co-ed dorm when more than 200 men were on the housing waiting list. Most women students were placed Into regular housing during the year. Hallatt said. However. some men were In the lounges until the end of
Hallatt believes that many students, especially freshmen, enjoy living In the lounges. They like the added living area and the novelty of having more than one roommate, he said.
"The idea behind overflow." Hallatt said, "is that as a state institution. we should make every effort to provide as much housing for those students who live in the state as possible."
It seemed like the last place anyone wanted to be was In a classroom. It was Just too hot. It was also too hot to sleep, eat or move.
There It was. the first day of classes and the only thought that came to mind was "I wonder If It's too early to start skipping class."
One of the hottest weeks on record coincided with the beginning of the fall semester. Temperatures soared Into the 90's and flirted with the 100 degree mark more than once.
Kamikaze divers made regular Jumps off the footbridge in an effort to beat the heat or break their necks, whichever came first.
All thought of fashion was disregarded in favor of comfort. Cut-offs and halter tops were the order of the day. Feet were bare or clad In a few straps of leather disguised as sandals. Hair was worn In the coolest way possible.
The unseasonable heat lasted only a week, but it felt like much longer.
Regular fall weather began to move In soon after with only an occasional glimpse of the summer gone by.
The leaves turned into their autumn burst of color and the temperatures slid slowly downward.
Summer was over. It was time to get back to work.Food forthought
"In the Army, they served this on a shingle."
Comments like these seemed to fill the food center cafeterias the opening weeks of the fall term. The new food service company. Professional Food Management, was another victim of the meat shortage.
"I've never heard of meatless lasagna." grumbled one freshman leaving Crest Commons.
The price freeze, and the consequent withholding of beef cattle by ranchers forced the food service to drastically change their menus, according to Ivan Key. manager of Professional Food Management here In Eau Claire.
Meat was not readily available, Key said, and what was available was “too high." Meat products comprised $225,000 of last year's food budget. Key added.
"Before the price freeze, we would purchase 3.000 pounds of ground beef a week," Key explained. "Now we can get only 500 pounds a week."
He added that prior to this year, only 100% ground beef was used. This year, with the shortage of beef, vegetable protein was added to the meat.
"Macaroni and cheese—again?"
Not only was there a shortage of
meat, but essentials like eggs, bread and noodles almost doubled in price.
"We had to totally eliminate seconds." Key said. "If we can't buy meat for firsts, how can we afford seconds?"
Service, however, had not been curtailed. according to Key. Continental breakfast, the soup and sandwich line, and extended hours were still available to students.
The comments from the “Beef Board," the food service suggestion box. have been negative, Key said, but he believed most students were aware of the problems. As prices decline, and meat products become available. Key anticipated revising menus and meal planning.

Egypt threatens to break peace
Beirut, Lebanon — AP — Egypt has secretly warned Palestinian guerrillas that it plans to break the three-year Middle East cease-fire soon, the Lebanese newspaper An Nahar reported today.
The warning was discussed In a nine-hour emergency session of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization. An Nahar said.

Watergate scandals could be a blessing In disguise because they have dramatized the potential for dictatorship, Clark Mollenhoff said at a Forum Sept. 12.
Mollenhoff said that White House Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman and Special Assistant John Erllchman believed that executive privilege could be used to prohibit the public from finding out what happened in the White House under the claim of that privilege.
Mollenhoff is the head of the Washington Bureau of the Des Moines Register and was a personal counselor on Nixon's staff In 1969 and 70.
Philip Berrigan said It would be impossible for Karleton Armstrong to receive a fair trial unless the people of Wisconsin gave him their support. Armstrong was accused of the 1970 bombing of the Army Math Research Center at the University of Wisconsln-Madison.
During his speech at a Forum on Sept. 10.
Berrigan frequently attacked the Nixon administration and public apathy.
Berrigan is a former Roman Catholic priest and a writer who was sentenced to prison in 1970 along with eight others for destroying draft records.In religion, women are second-class citizens, according to Dr. Harvey Cox. Cox spoke In the Arena on Sept. 20 as part ot the Forum series.
Cox stressed that women needed to be accepted as part of the church and "not just second-class." Society should aim at equalizing the sexes, Cox said.
Cox. a professor at Harvard Divinity School, spoke on "The Seduction of the Spirit," which is also the title of his latest book.
Although Eastern and Western religions are being studied, the only way to bridge the gulf between East and West is to bridge the gulf between men and women, he said.
Cox said the ecumenical movement may need to take a new step In the future.
"Maybe the movement shouldn’t be to church unity but to unity within the church." he said.
Learning about religion Is like learning another language, he said. Religion is “moving to a more global and planetary stage," Cox remarked.
i Grass Roots encore
for UW audience
The Grass Roots, back for their second appearance In two years, performed for more than 2,000 people at the UW-EC arena on Sept. 13.
A delay In setting up their equipment, a dragged out warm-up and a crippled public address system were some of the misfortunes the Grass Roots encountered.
The five musicians, two of them from the original group, performed the oldies that pushed them to the top of the charts in the '60's. "Let's Live for Today.” "Where Were You When I Needed You.” “A Million Years” and their latest hit, "Love is What You Make It." were only some of the songs they played.
The concert was well underway before the audience started to respond by clapping their hands in time with the music.
After their scheduled sets, a standing ovation brought the Grass Roots back for an encore. They left the stage with the ring of “Midnight Confessions" and applause In the air.
The comedy duo of Johnson and Drake served as a backup group for the Grass Roots. They performed a series of folksy, humorous pieces, which put the audience in a Joking mood. One duet featured Guy Drake in “Hello New Day." a newly released single by the twosome.

53Agnew vacates 2nd highest office
Washington -AP- As night fell, lights shone in the White House. But the offices of Spiro T. Agnew were dark.
The two parking spaces on West Executive Avenue, guarded by yellow stripes and a sign reading "Parking for the Vice President." were vacant. So was the nation’s second highest office.
Facing corruption charges. Agnew had resigned and pleaded no con-
AP — Americans already stunned by tales of wiretapping and burglaries, of "dirty tricks" and “plumber units." found this weekend that the Watergate story still has the ability to shock.
In less than two days, with events tumbling over one another, the at-
test to a single count of Income tax evasion.
Now one of the most momentous days In America's political history was fading into the autumn dusk, carrying with it the tattered remnants of Agnew’s political career.
Wednesday. October 10, had been a day of pain for Agnew and others, from typists In his office to top vice-presidential aides.
torney general resigned and the deputy attorney general was fired, the special Watergate prosecutor was discharged after he clashed head on with the President; and there were new cries for Impeachment ...
At midafternoon Tuesday, a red carnation In the lapel of his dark grey suit, Agnew stood In a gilded ballroom of the New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and addressed a congress of building industry representatives.
There was no ringing declaration of Innocence, no vow to fight Indictment. no promise not to resign. Only a bland defense of Nixon administration housing programs and a lone quip:
"I thought I might come here and give a provocative speech on the relationship between architects and engineers and the political fundraising process ... Then. I thought I would not. At least not today_"
Ford volunteers as liaison
Nixon fires top officials
Nixon surrenders tapes
Washington -AP- President Nixon’s promise to surrender nine Watergate tapes has blunted an Impeachment initiative, but hasn't stilled calls for a new special prosecutor.
Nixon worked today, October 24. at his mountaintop retreat at Camp David, Md., on a television address to be delivered Thursday.
He was expected to appeal for national unity in the wake of Tuesday’s startling about-face, when he surprised even his closest advisors by deciding to obey a federal appeals court order on the tapes.
Meanwhile, today the House of Representatives continued a preliminary impeachment Inquiry, begun just before Nixon's lawyers
announced the tapes would be given to a federal Judge...
Washington -AP- Vlce-President-designate Gerald R. Ford offered himself today as a conciliator between the White House and Congress as hearings opened on his nomination for the nation's second highest executive job....
Middle East war erupts
UPI — Israeli and Egyptian tanks, infantry and war-planes clashed on both sides of the Suez Canal today in what might be shaping up as the decisive battle of the 1973 Middle East war.
An Israeli armored task force, backed by waves of dive-bombing warplanes, rumbled across Arab territory on the west bank of the 102-mile-long canal trying to smash Egypt’s powerful Suez missile umbrella.
On the waterway’s eastern side. Israeli and Egyptian tanks and infantry battled In fierce fighting over the rolling sands of the Sinai Desert.
A military spokesman In Tel Aviv described the desert clashes as "large-scale armor battles." The Israeli command, however, barred foreign newsmen from the region and kept details of the latest Sinai fighting under wraps...
umemphis blues jazz it up
The Memphis Blues Caravan presented a concert on Oct. 3 to approximately 400 people In Schofield Auditorium.
The Caravan, composed of veteran blues artists from Memphis. Tenn.. was the world's first traveling blues show.
Short, solid sets representing different blues styles were played by the artists.
The blues piano of Plano Red opened the program. Performances by steel guitarist Bukka White, Furry Lewis,
Sleepy John Estes with Hammle Nixon on the harmonica followed. Houston Stockhouse and Joe Willie Wilkins and his King Biscuit Boys formed the blues band.comedy at the cabin
The standard bill of fare in coffeehouses usually seems to be a singer with a message... someone who has traveled life's roads and experienced most of what life has to offer. It comes out in their songs— the joys, the sorrows, the pain... gut feelings on a gut level.
But this time the only thing appealing to the viewer's insides was the sound of human Rice Krispies.
"Divided We Stand." an improvisational group, presented their curious brand of comedy for a week at the Cabin. The quartet relied on non-verbal humor through movement, sound and visual Impact.
Some of their routines Included portrayals of human slot machines and mandolins. They were also adept at playing themselves— their cheeks and arms, that is.
It was grace, color and movement that opened the 1973 Artist Series.
Ballet West, a professional dance group with International stature, per formed October 1 at Memorial High School in Eau Claire. The company, based at the University of Utah, starred eight dancers and has a corps de ballet of twenty.
Under the direction of William F. Christensen, artistic director, and Bene Arnold, ballet mistress. Ballet West opened with "Serenade" done to Tschaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings."
The second number, "Con Amore," the story of a young bandit who invades an Amazon camp, was danced to a collection of Rossini overtures.
An award-winning play with a strange name was the season opener tor the University Theatre. Directed by WII Denson. "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" is the story of a girl doing a science project with marigold seeds exposed to radiation. Like the marigolds, she finds herself born Into an environment entirely alien to her.
Judy Jacobson played Tillie. the young scientist. Ruth, her sister, was portrayed by Julie Peterman; Lynn Wolf was the mother. Jonl Martins played Nannie and Sara Scheu took the part of Janice Vickery.‘Mirror Man’ reflects imagery
The Theater for Youth, under the direction of Virginia Hirsch. presented "Mirror Man" in the Riverside Theater.
It told of a toymaker and his mirror image who combine forces to defeat a witch threatening to harm the toymaker's beautiful mechanical doll.
The cast Included Mike McGrath and John Sabel as the Toymaker and Richard Erickson as the Mirror Man. Sandy Gutknect and Sue Woodward alternated in the witch role and Lynne Plekarski was Beauty, the doll. Sandy Tauferner was the assistant director.
Chamber series offers cellist Henri Honegger
The Chamber Series' first presentation was cellist Henri Honegger. Honegger studied with the late Pablo Casals and is an Internationally proclaimed artist.
Honegger, accompanied by Walter Robert of the Indiana School of Music, performed selections written by Bach. Beethoven. Debussy and Vivaldi.
Earlier In the day. Honegger conducted an Informal workshop for string students in the Fine Arts Concert Hall.
-r'-Nvann klar ski 73
There's more to skiing than going to the top of a hill and shushing down.
It takes skill and practice to make a good skier and the right equipment helps.
Displays of ski equipment and ski fashions were all part of "Ski 73." the annual ski show sponsored by Vann Klar Ski Club.
Interested persons had a chance to view the latest in ski trends.
The event, held In Davies Center on October 7. featured movies, displays and a fashion show.AIS
cooks up a storm
For many it was an adventure In eating, but for others it was like sitting down for one of mom's home-cooked meals.
The Association of International Students hosted a dinner featuring food from six countries.
More than 200 people, including students, faculty and administration, sat down to a three-course dinner that started with hors d'oeuvres of baked herring and sliced boiled egg on a biscuit-like bread.
The main course consisted of the Japanese “Cherashi Sushi." made from rice, crab and seaweed. African chicken stew, or "Obe." was served with It.
Dessert cakes from China, Spain and Mexico topped off the meal.
After dinner, entertainment was provided by some of the foreign students.
According to Neville Evans, president of AIS, the purpose of the dinner was to provide the campus with the opportunity to learn about the culture of some of the foreign students.
64Claire, as well as other colleges, is the student's lack of knowledge of current American history." Scott said.
There is a communications gap with the general public which does not help solve the problems of the black, he said.
Society will suffer until problems on both sides of the color line are corrected, he said.
Scott, founding member of the Watts Writers Workshop, graduated from Stanford with a degree in communications.
Scott said five more documentaries are being planned by the workshop depicting the position of the Individual in the ghetto.
When tanks rumble in the streets, as they did In Watts in 1965, something is definitely wrong with a society that requires that kind of force to quell a rebellious people, he said.
‘Angry voice of
A noted writer and filmmaker, Johnie Scott, visited classes and met with special interest groups during a two-week stay In Eau Claire.
Scott received an Emmy nomination for "Angry Voice of Watts." a documentary on the Watts riots In 1965. The riots resulted in the deaths of 37 people and $10 million worth of property damage In Los Angeles.
Scott's appearance was under the auspices of the English department.
Speaking about Black Theater and the film Industry. Scott said films carry the message he wants to deliver to a larger audience.
"Angry Voice of Watts" asks why 800.000 people would consider committing suicide, he said. Young people from ghettos need more than one option to choose from or another Watts could occur, Scott stated.
They need guidelines and help from others who have made it out of the ghetto, he said.
Scott said students on campuses he had visited didn't remember the early '60's— the Civil Rights movements and black uprisings.
Somehow such incidents have slipped through the annals of history and the memories of young people, he said.

Watts’ speaks outWomen unique, Women united
Two days devoted to women were held on campus In mid-October. "Awareness 73 — Women Unique, Women United' was designed to expand women's awareness of themselves.
Special guest speakers included State Representative Midge Miller of Msdison. Ms. Miller spoke in defense of women's rights and their role in politics.
Gene Boyer of the National Organization of Women (NOW) outlined the achievements and directions of the feminist movement in a slide presentation.
Rap sessions were held Saturday covering such topics as sexuality, careers and reproduction.
An art show featuring the works of local women artists was held In the Skyllte Lounge. An all-feminist talent show in the Blackhawk Lounge ended the session.
The event was sponsored by Women in Higher Education, the Commission on the Status of Women and the Eau Claire chapter of NOW.
Heading the workshop on the feminist movement was Gene Boyer, vice-president of finance and national executive board member of NOW
69A workshop (or adults In children's theater and creative drama was held in the Fine Arts Center October 27.
Performances, films and lectures were scheduled for the purpose of Instructing people who are working in different areas of drama and perhaps to Interest some people who would like to get into drama, according to Virginia Hlrsch, director of Theater for Youth at UW-EC.
Workshop focuses on children’s theater
It takes practice to be a member of the marching band, and that's exactly what band members did every week for at least three hours. The 280-member group had their first performance on September 22 at the River Falls—Eau Claire football game at Carson Park. Under the direction of Dr. Donald George, the band performed four times during the course of the year, Including the special "Salute to Louis Armstrong" at homecoming. The band practiced under all weather conditions. Including the end-of-August heat wave.forum
The typical archetypes of male and female will break down with the emergence of a cool sexual mentality. Dr. Robert Francoeur said at a Forum on November 5. Male dominance will be replaced with sexual equality, he said.
Francoeur. a professor of human sexuality and medical ethics, is the author of seven books dealing with his opinions on marriage, human reproduction, medical technology and the meaning of human sexuality.
The topic of the Forum was "Hot and Cool Sex." Francoeur said a hot sex mentality "reduces human sexuality to biological plumbing." whereas sexuality becomes an integrated part of personality under a cool sex attitude.
India hated British rule but loved British things, thereby retaining English as the official language of India, which is one of many paradoxes evolving from India's struggle for freedom, according to Mrs. Navantra Sahgal.
Mrs. Sahgal. speaking October 24 at a Forum. "The Inheritance of India" and an International Roundtable. "A Writer Looks at Two Worlds," explained that she has chosen to write two autobiographies and four novels In English. The English language allows her to reach a greater world-wide audience, she said.
India owes its independence to Mahatma Gandhi's non-cooperation movement, she said, and his principle of destroying an enemy by making him your friend. Freedom was a goal which Gandhi would not compromise, she said, but he believed in compromising on other issues if it would bring India closer to gaining independence.
73Student Senate endures unstable year
Another Thursday, another Spectator.
On the last page, beyond the movie ads and sports stories, there It was—the feature editorial with the simple headline, "Boycott senate," followed by an Indictment of Student Senate and the plea that students forego the fall election for president of Student Senate.
Ideas for editorials are brought up at weekly meetings of the Spectator's editorial
board, according to Jeff Kummer. editorial page editor. An Idea can be advanced by any member of the paper's staff. The board weighs the pros and cons of the issue, develops the paper's stand and assigns a staff writer to write an editorial. In the case of the boycott editorial. Kummer said the paper's position was a long time In coming.
Much of the opposition to the Senate was due to the Ill-fated Broom Slate exper-
ience of the previous spring. Advocating adult rights for students and student control of activity fees, the Broom Slate was able to gain a majority of the Senate seats and elect their candidates.
Dave Ketz and Clara Kalscheur. as president and vice president.
Both factions agreed that the Broom Slate was unsuccessful. Claiming the Senate was powerless and too dependent on the administration, members of the Broom Slate moved to abolish the Senate at a dramatic meeting in May.
When the motion was voted down, Broom Slate senators resigned and left the meeting.
Later that spring, President Ketz quit. Vice President Kalscheur resigned prior to the October elections.
"The Broom Slate killed Itself', former Senator Dick Qranchalek said.
"They did not get much accomplished," he said. "I guess they did not want to take the time. They lost communication with people."
Broom Slate members began espousing the causes of Karl Armstrong and Cesar Chavez. "Perhaps thafs not Senate's place," Granchalek said.
Qranchalek and Bill Parks, another survivor of the last Senate, met early in the fall semester to decide who would run for which executive office.
In September. Parks filed for president and Qranchalek for vice president. Jan Ozzello and Jane Paul later filed for the executive posts, also.
Then came the Spectator editorial In the next issue, members of the university community voiced their opinions. Those favoring continuation of the Senate Included acting President Don Bestul. Senator Bruce Kuehn and an impressive list of student personnel
’Co WHAT IF THE STUDENT SENATE IS A PUPPET ? Some OF BEST FRIENDS ARE PUPPETS
7424. Thursday, Sept 30, lf73
WHEN A PERSON Invests money, he waits a reasonable penua of time and then begins looking for results. If there are none, and if the investor is wise, he will withdraw his money from the project and take his support elsewhere. Students are in much the same position regarding Student Senate.
Investments of nearly $16,000 in student money go each year to finance a group that has produced few results. It's time for the student body to withdraw their support of this nonfunctional organization and start looking elsewhere for representation at this university. The best way to do this, it seems to us, is for the student body to collectively boycott the upcoming senate election, Oct. 1,2, and 3.
In past elections, an average of aomehwere between 20 to 30 percent of the students cast ballots — a low total, but apparently now low enough to make the administration realize student dissatisfaction with the group. If by boycotting the election, however, the number of students voting could be lowered to less than 10 per cent, it appears someone would get the hint
Last year The Spectator reported a Senate decision to use student
The Spectator "reaffirmed" its stand and began a series on student government at other University of Wisconsin campuses. In turn, the Senate spent part of Its S16.000 budget on a full-page ad In the October 4 Issue.
"DON'T TEAR DOWN what you and others have built up. .
Elections were held October 8.9 and 10. delayed a week because of the resignation of Alan Ralph, the last of the Broom Slate candidates, who was responsible for elections. After several recounts. Parks was elected over Ozzello. 563 to 549 and Granchalek beat Paul. 605 to 556.
There were no hard feelings between the candidates.
Qranchalek said; both he end Parks had a "good relationship with opponents.”
The election was cited by both the Senate and the Spectator as a success. John Frank, who assisted Tony LaChappelle in running the election, said the percentage of students voting "did not deviate greatly from the standard 12 to 14 percent." Granchalek thought the boycott did not have much effect.
Kummer. however, maintains the Spectator was successful.
"We don’t measure our success on how we are able to destroy something." he said. The boycott issue seemed to focus student attention on the Senate and many of the proposals raised by the Spectator were brought before the new Senate by Parks and Granchalek. Kummer said.
The new Senate was faced wtth the immediate task of "rebuilding,M Granchalek said.
A “Hyde Park" free debate on campus on October 31 featured random speakers, mostly students
in favor of abolishing the Senate. Credibility became Important. A more conservative stance and serious meetings were stressed.
"People won't look at you If you have a Howdy-Doody meeting," Granchalek said, recalling the meetings of the Broom Slate Senate.
Issues brought before the new Senate included a proposed tenant union, a sex education major, the arming of campus patrolmen and a day care center.
In contrast to earlier administrations. Granchalek said the Senate would utilize the state-wide body. United Council, as a resource, while concentrating on Issues Important to the Eau Claire campus.
The new executives see the Senate as a clearing house for student complaints, Granchalek said.
"Higher education as a whole has toned down since
1968. We have reached the end of the radical tone.
We’re willing to work with the administration," he said.
Parks and Granchalek believe In the Senate. If It was not there, the new vice president asks, "Who would do programming? Who would people go to with a problem? The administration?"
Apparently the Spectator has made Its point. Kummer applauds much of the work of the new Senate, particularly the work on an Eau Claire tenant's union. But October was still early In the year.
"We’re waiting to see if the senate proves to students that there is a need for student government,’’ Kummer said, ’’Instead of being a waste of money."
Cartoon and editorial reprinted from the Spectator, with permission."If we get good performances from our best swimmers and some help from some of the new girls, we'll be tough to beat." said Head Coach Judy Kruckman about the women's swim team before the season started.
"Hard to beat" Is Just what the team proved to be. The Blugold swimmers were unbeaten in dual and triangular meet competition and finished third In the WIAC state meet behind LaCrosse and Madison.
Cheryl Brefka and Gall Figl placed a second and fourth, respectively In the 100-yard backstroke. The duo also finished three and four In the 50-yard backstroke.
The 200-yard freestyle team
set a new school record of 1:52.9. Brefka was Joined by Cindy Bracy. Cere Dlotte and Sue Momsen In the race.
Momsen also placed third In the 200-yard freestyle.
Bracy was sixth in the same event.
Andrea Hill swam to a third place finish in the 50-yard backstroke.
Joan Schalk set a new school diving record with a total of 237.05 points, finishing third. Teammate Jill Smyth placed fourth with 234.4.
“I couldn't be happier with the way the kids performed." Kruckman said. "There wasn't one girl who didn't perform up to expectations."
swim teamRecreation is relaxation?
Recreation on campus has always been popular and this fall was no exception.
There were five men's touch football leagues, four softball leagues and one soccer league. The women's program had four powder puff football leagues and two softball leagues.
Rickie’s Ripoffs, Tau Kappa Epsilon, the Blumolds. the Happy Hookers and the Rippers were champions In the men's touch football leagues.

Four teams participated in the soccer league. Players from Africa. Jamaica.
Vietnam and Thailand formed the Foreign Eagles team. Another team was composed of players from Israel. Peru and Kenya.
There were also two American teams in the soccer league.
Members of championship teams In each league received a blue and gold T-shirt and trophies.
During the fall season. 37.438 people competed In various athletic programs.
This was an increase of 9.341 from 1972.Concert and collage create festive auraDespite the cancellation of the headline act and a 14-7 loss to LaCrosso, Homecoming '73 was a success.
Something new was tried this year in hopes of stimulating more Interest In the annual event. The newly established Fall Festival and Homecoming merged to become Fall Festival Homecoming. (What else?)
Many traditional homecoming activities were kept on the agenda, but they were joined by some new entertainment forms designed to appeal to a variety of tastes.
The festivities began on Tuesday.
October 16 with the initial balloting for the king and queen. Voting for the candidates continued through Friday after the field was narrowed down to five finalists on Wednesday night.
The names of the king and queen finalists were announced following a mini-concert in the Southwoods Room of Davies Center. The concert featured "True." a rock and roll band that brought back the sounds of the '50's.84
Ike, Tina cancel
On Thursday night, an Innovative event was held In the Arena. A "Multi-Media Collage." billed as a “bizarre bazaar." presented exhibits by individuals and departments with continuous music, demonstrations, slide shows and art. craft, science and foreign language displays.
An estimated 400 people attended.
The Ike and Tina Turner Revue was to be the big name entertainment on Friday night, but the illness of Tina Turner forced the group to cancel.
The decision to cancel the concert was made on Friday afternoon by the concert committee and an alternate concert was hastily set up. Red Holt, the back-up act for Ike and Tina, performed along with theSolberg Brothers Band.
Following the concert a torchlight coronation of the king and queen was held on the footbridge. The ceremony started at the Fine Arts building and proceeded across the footbridge after a pep rally and snake dance had made its way down the hill to the coronation site.
Finalists in the competition were Mary Gendron and Kurt Tausche. Oak Ridge; Michelle Guy and Ray Adams. Murray; Karen Vaubel and Jeff Frese. Towers; Chris Groves and Jim Gourley; Bridgman; and Janise Anderson and Marty Bader of Sutherland.Parade draws large crowd
Last year's royalty, Carla Smedberg and Gene Christenson, were on hand to crown the 1973 Homecoming King and Queen. Near midnight the announcement was made and Towers’ candidates. Karen Vaubel and Jeff Frese. reigned over the remainder of the weekend's activities.
On Saturday, the weather was made to order for a parade, picnic and football game.
The parade started at 10 a.m. at Sixth Avenue and proceeded down Water Street to First Avenue, across the Lake Street Bridge and through Barstow Commons.
Twenty-five area high school marching bands participated in the parade along with the UW-EC marching band.Floats in tune with the theme for the four-day event. “Blatz ’em in Good Old Style." were judged and awarded prizes.
First place went to Scandinavian Club. Oak Ridge took second and Sutherland Hall placed third.
A picnic catered by Professional Food Service Management was held at Carson Park following the parade.
Carson Park also was the site of the football game which saw Eau Claire fall to LaCrosse 14-7. LaCrosse turned two Blugold errors Into touchdowns. one of which proved to be the margin of defeat. The loss all but eliminated Eau Claire from the WSUC title race.
A dance on Saturday night ended Homecoming festivities. "Sno-blind." a Madison group, provided the music for about 550 people at an informal dance in the Southwoods Room.Whoever labeled Eau Claire • Wisconsin's Most Beautiful Campus" must have visited in the fall.
The rich reds and golds somehow hide the bricks and cold cement and the entire campus comes alive in color. Even the "mighty Chippewa" appears habitable to the ducks.
This year the warm weather lingered into October and brought many students out to the lawns to study while soaking up the last warm rays of autumn.
There’s a stillness on campus in the fall, and the quiet changing of the leaves is like a long pause before the winter's cold.
It has been called a panorama. a dab of every color of the artist's palette.
But most of all. in Eau Claire, it is the prettiest time of the year.
It seems winter, with its gray and barren trees, lasts so long .. .and the colors of autumn are the formal announcement of the end of summer.Black Oak disappointing,
By Ann Andre
Smashed. "Jim Dandy" wanted us to think he was. no doubt some members of the audience were, two guitars at the end of the Black Oak Arkansas' set were, and my eardrums felt as if they had been after the concert.
“This is gonna be loud, ya' know that?" somebody commented before the November 7. Climax Blues Band-Black Oak Arkansas concert as he eyed the monstrous sound system erected at the end of the University Arena Unfortunately. his observation was true and the excessive volume hurt the first performers. As for Black Oak Arkansas, volume doesn't hinder their music, just covers the fact that that's what it isn't.
Climax Blues Band, a tour-member group from England, plays blues fit for boogie A set that began with an easy, rocking number devel-
oped into a demonstration of the particular talents of lead guitarist, saxophonist and drummer.
The silver lead guitar threw strange shaped colored images which vibrated with rhythm on the walls, ceiling and crowd. Halfway through the set. members of the audience were on their feet, clapping, bobbing, swaying and dancing. The smell of marijuana permeated the Arena and occasionally a flashlight beam sought out a smoker of one kind or another.
Especially notable was a drum solo that grew out of the familiar blues song. "The Seventh Son." Precision drumming combined with a medley of Interesting rhythms to hold the audience taut. Relaxation came when the group swung into a blue blues which contained some really fine stretches of lead guitar work.
The plateau of the Climax
Blues Band's set came when the lead guitarist appeared on stage alone and announced it was slide guitar time.
In "Country House" he explored the entire fingerboard in what seemed to be an important one-man jam session.
A high-school aged girl with bare belly slinked and wiggled to the boogie rhythm like some kind of rare bird sending out mating signals.
In the bleachers, a thin, long-haired youth with an invisible guitar swayed, his fingers wildly picking the air. Whoops and whistles broke into the sound. The audience was digging it.
However, I've heard Climax Blues in better form.
Their music lacked definition Wednesday night due to the heavy amplification and the confined area.
Guitar runs became muddled when each note was covered by the feedback from the previous five. At times the saxophone was irritatingly raspy. Nevertheless, they were well received, and if Climax Blues Band ever comes toUW-EC again I'll bet it won't be billed as the second band...
... There's not much to be said about the musical content of Black Oak Arkansas' set. Out of four guitarists and a drummer, along with Jim "Dandy" Mangrum. you'd think some kind of ability would bubble up from the muck of sound, but only rarely did either of the lead guitars take off Into something that may be called skillful or original. A drum solo late in the set was irritating—the drummer may as well have played directly on our eardrums, it was so loud.
98Climax Blues well received
They do give the audience a show, perhaps a release tor some. The entire set is planned so Mangrum's spiels between songs lead into the theme of the next song. His device is to make the audience feel a part of it—
"I'm high so let's get you high," or "I'm horny so let's get you horny." But if one doesn’t care to be high or horny with “Jim Dandy" and gets bored with his acrobatics and the antics of the rest of the band. Black Oak Arkansas can leave one pretty cold...
... I got tired of being teased. By the time "Hot and Nasty" climaxed the set and two guitars were smashed together and left to die groaning on the stage. I was really sick of the abuse to my ears and the insult to my taste. And from comments I've heard around campus in the past week. I wasn't the only one.
But apparently some people like it. or 2.324 tickets wouldn't have been sold (and any show that can get over 2,000 people in the Arena is considered good in the sense of being a success, according to Edward Brown, business manager of the University Center.)
The Social Commission can't be criticized for bringing a show that clears the red to campus, big name or whatever. Ultimately it's the quality of the entertainment they get. live or recorded.
In my opinion, from Black Oak Arkansas we can go nowhere but up.

For the past several years there has been a growing awareness that a program of specialized new courses is needed to serve a transitional function between high school and college for the student who has inadequate academic preparation for satisfactory work In college, said Or. Carl Haywood. The Transitional Year Program has been designed to answer that need, he said. It is a relatively new program and evolved out of the Educational Opportunities Program at UW-EC. however the latter was not well funded, making It difficult to give more than token help to students with academic problems. Haywood, head of the new program, explained.
During the 1971-72 school year. Vice Chancellor John Morris, then Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, requested the Educational Opportunity Program Committee to look into the feasibility of a better program. A subcommittee, headed by Haywood, proposed the Transitional Year Program In May. 1972 after seven months of study.
The Transitional Year Program is designed to help students who are disadvantaged
because of a lack of educational training in high school or for reasons such as race or sex. Haywood said.
The program started In August. 1972 with more than 50 students enrolled. Haywood said the students’ high school records and ACT scores were examined and then candidates were approached during registration and offered the opportunity to enroll In the program.
Students In the Transitional Year Program can pass the courses, they can pass with the stipulation that further tutoring is needed or would be helpful, or. he added, they can continue in the program. If students find that college is not for them. Haywood explained, no record of their class grade would be kept, preventing a bad record from following the student.
This year there were 100 students enrolled In the Transitional Year Program, taking an average of about two classes each. Courses were offered In biology.
English, math, reading skills, social sciences and study skills.

Three additional majors have been approved by the School of Education for teaching certification. The political science, psychology and sociology majors will be certified due.
In part, to a change in the standards of the Department of Public Instruction, according to Dr. Rodney Johnson. School of Education dean.
The certification for the three majors is based somewhat on the move at the state level for standards that would require teachers to teach their primary classes In their major area only. Dr. Johnson said. High schools are also expanding their curriculum to Include courses in political science, psychology and sociology so the university must expand in order to provide qualified teachers for the courses, he explained.
While there is a recognized surplus of graduates seeking teaching positions, the School of Education has seen no appreciable change in total enrollment. Dr. Johnson said.
There has been a nominal drop in enrollment in the secondary education program, he said, but It has been compensated by an Increase in those seeking degrees in special education.
Although he sees no teacher shortage occurring until at least the 1980’s. Johnson is hesitant to consider any plans for limiting the enrollment in the School of Education and defends the right of any student to pursue a teaching career.
UW-EC currently places approximately 70 per cent of the education graduates seeking Jobs which Dr. Johnson attributes
to both the program at Eau Claire and the caliber of students graduating.
Dr. Johnson said that the School of Education is concerned with preparing Its teaching candidates for the school of tomorrow by Introducing new programs and methods of teaching.
Special education has moved towards the concept of placing the handicapped student In the "mainstream” of the normal classroom experience as much as possible, he said.
Secondary education majors have been given the option of teaching In Rice Lake or Marshfield schools and participating in classroom activities at the UW centers. Dr. Johnson said, giving the student the opportunity of a full semester’s teaching experience.
Elementary education has moved towards the multi-unit school concept and individually guided education, he said, with the idea of breaking away from the large classroom setting where one teacher Instructs all of the subjects and at one level.
The library science and media education major has expanded from the print emphasis to a media emphasis with majors qualiflng as audio-visual coordinators as well as librarians.
The physical education-women major was offered by the physical education department for the first time this year. Dr. Johnson said. A coaching minor and a health minor are being considered as possible future additions to the department, he said."All cultures have deep aesthetic roots grounded In the arts. Visual awareness is taking on a new significance in our contemporary society, as man seeks and selects quality in what he sees. Visual response will become a key to man's enjoyment of Increased leisure and a longer life span in the future." (1974-75 UW-EC catalog)
The heart and core of the Art Department Is the Foster Gallery, according to Gretchen Grimm, acting Art Department chairman. The gallery, which Is financed by the students, brings artists from all over the country for monthlong exhibits. Grimm said the staff is extremely proud of the gallery and feels it would be difficult to function without it.
Art education, art history and studio are the three Interdependent areas of the curriculum which lead to a teaching certification or a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, she explained. Art education prepares students for
leaching positions in the Midwest, she said. A graduate program, under the direction of Or. Pauli McCoy, will be started soon, she added.
Art history offers a complete course In the humanities and general studies to help students understand what art is all about and give them a broader education, she explained. The department is requesting a major in art history, she said.
Studio offers print making, sculpture, metal smithing, pottery and ceramics, design, painting, drawing and fibers.
Student enrollment is down slightly, she said, and there are not enough graduates to meet the demand for teaching positions. This demand is expected to increase. Grimm said, after July 1.1974. when the Governor's A300 Bill becomes state law.
This bill will require that every elementary and high school in the state have a certified art teacher in order to receive state aid. she explained.biology
The Biology Department has developed new course offerings for 1974. but, like so many other departments at UW-EC, the actual offering of these courses will depend on whether the present staff will remain the same or be decreased in size because of budget cuts.
If there is no decrease in faculty, the new courses to be offered will be: Limnology. Plant Ecology. Population Genetics, and Animal Behavior. Also to be offered is a Senior Seminar which will consist of individual reports of either library research or actual biological investigation.
Biology majors may receive a degree from either the School of Arts and Sciences or the School of Education with an emphasis in either botany or zoology.
The American Chemical Society has granted accreditation to the Chemistry Department’s 48-hour degree program, which, according to Floyd Krause, department chairman, is granted to only about one out of every four universities.
The accreditation is dependent upon the quality of the faculty, laboratory space, equipment, content of courses offered and even the safety standards In the laboratory, Krause said.
Students taking computer science usage courses this year had a greater advantage than students of the previous two years; two new computers were installed to replace the existing over-worked one.
Prior to installation in October, students. faculty and administration were all using one computer in Phillips Hall. However, after installation, the new computer in Phillips Hall was used primarily by students and faculty while the new one in Schofield Hall was used by the administration.
The purchase of the two computers enabled students and faculty to get a faster response to their programs, and gave the first semester computer students the advantage of learning on both the old and new computer.
A minor In Computer Science is currently offered, but this year the department submitted a proposal to offer a major. According to department chairman David Nuesse, faculty acceptance of the proposal has been good. If passed, the proposal would be initiated in the fall of 1975.
Enrollment In computer science courses has steadily been increasing, Nuesse said, with over 300 students enrolled in computer science courses during the first semester.
The goal of the Computer Science Department. according to Nuesse. Is not to e-ducate a computer science student to get a job. but to teach him about the discipline of computer science and equip him with technological skills.
The Economics Department participates In the Social Sciences graduate program which will probably be eliminated next year, according to Dr. Donald Ellickson. department chairman.
Although the loss of this program may hurt the economics summer program.
Ellickson said the loss will not seriously affect the department. He added that the department, which has grown in the last few years, is making plans to cooperate with the Master of Business Administration graduate program.
This year. Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory was offered for the first time as a night class during the fall semester, he said. In an attempt to reach a different audience. The class was not very successful In reaching this goal, he explained, because most of those enrolled In the course were regular full-time students who would have taken the class during the day. The department is hoping that a more general business course, such as Labor Economics, will attract a more diverse audience, he said.
An economics teaching degree program was reinstated this year. Ellickson said.
He believes that this is a beneficial program because economics is frequently taught in public high schools by teachers in other social science areas with little background In economics.
The department Is considering expansion in the use of audio-visual techniques, he said. Tenative plans are being made for the development of a series of slides for “General Economics: Markets and Economic Well-Being." Ellickson said. Control groups learning with the traditional methods will be compared to experimental groups using the new techniques, he said.english
Have you ever wondered why freshman English Composition is the only course required for fulfillment of General Studies?
According to Dr. Kenneth Spaulding, chairman of the English Department, everyone needs to communicate through writing to some degree, regardless of his interests. Through the writing process, the student gains skill in presenting his ideas yet more Important, he added, is the self-analysis Involved.
While English Composition may be required for all freshmen, general enrollment in the English Department has decreased in the past four years, causing a reduction in courses and sections offered. Spaulding commented. Despite these decreases, the facilities of Schofield Hall are inadequate for the needs of the department, he said.
The new humanities building will aid In the future development of the department, particularly In the expansion of audiovisual materials. Spaulding noted.
The department Is also expanding In the area of special topics by developing courses covering specific subjects through the Outreach program. Spaulding said.
Outreach, he said. Is similar In many respects to the old university Extension program. "It extends the boundaries of the university to the boundaries of the state.” he continued.
"We re trying to be alive and grow as a department and I think we are," he stated.
Students having trouble writing English compositions can seek help from special tutors. Mike Lyons and Sandy McDonald work on a paper.
Parlez-vous une langue etranger? Do you speak a foreign language?
Dr. Vernon Gingerich. chairman of the Foreign Language Department, stated that people either have the ability to absorb a foreign language or they do not.
The main problem In learning a language, he explained, is that there is a great deal of memorization Involved. The student must study daily or he will be lost, he said.
The best way to become fluent In a language. Gingerich said, is to be in a situation where you have to speak the language in order to live.
There has been a general decline In enrollment In the Foreign Language Department since 1968. according to Gingerich. Decreasing enrollment in French. Spanish and German classes has resulted In the loss of three instructors for the 1974-75 year, he said.
The department has attempted to increase enrollment. Gingerich noted, by making things easier for the student.
The first language course a student takes may count as General Studies, he said. Credit by examination is now being given to students who receive a “B" or better in advanced placement courses, he added. The requirement that students complete a full year of a beginning language course has been eliminated, he mentioned.
Other changes the department has made, he said, include the offering of a service course in Chicano Civilization for the Sociology Department. A Scandinavian Area Studies program is also being considered, he said. Anytime a Scandinavian language course is offered. Gingerich said, enough student interest is attracted to fill a class. A beginning course In Norwegian is presently being taught.
The true value of learning any language is in discovering what the people of another culture are like.
The eneroy crisis this year was an engineering problem. Dr. James Foust. Geography Department chairman, said. “Energy." he explained, “is infinite;
It's there if we want to pay the price for It It Is somewhat a problem of the way we live; we misuse space.’
Geography, he explained, is a spatial discipline, concerned not only with the past use and quality of space but also with the future.
The department is in the process of developing a pre-professional degree in
urban and regional planning. Foust said. A community Internship course will be offered next year for geography majors, he added.
This fall, for the first time. General Physical Geography was taught audlo-tutorially, he said. The department has also proposed developing a new audiotutorial laboratory. However. Foust said there Is a funding problem.
He pointed out that once it is established, an audio-tutorial course is cheaper than the lecture-discussion course.
tuto an open system that gives the students the responsibility for designing their own programs and implementing them professionally. Myers recommends a strong background In mathematics and other sciences. Background in communicative skills is also essential.
Four new courses implemented In the department have passed the Curriculum Committee and will hopefully pass the General Studies Committee and become part of the program. Myers said.
well-trained geologists, geophysicists. geochemists, hydrogeologists and engineering geologists will become more In demand as the world needs more energy and resources from the earth.
The Geology Department is reaching out to offer a better understanding of the earth. Its history and its resources.
"We want students who will take hold with high motivation—who are willing to offer something to society.” said Dr. Paul E. Myers. Geology Department chairman, about the caliber of students the department wants In their program.
•The Geology Department offers the kinds of courses people should be taking— especially now.” Myers added.
The department provides students with “vigorous, highly Individualized undergraduate training which stresses field techniques and Independent research.” according to Myers and his staff. Dr. John Bergstrom and Dr. Ronald Willis. The department has one part-time instructor. Mrs. Nancy Pickett.
Myers Is restructuring the direction of the department’s programs. He is changing from the four-track major systemhistory
History has often been criticized as the study of the trivial and the obsolete. Many persons in many walks of life enjoy history as a hobby, but dismiss it as insignificant in the practical world of everyday life.
The History Department is quick to disagree with this view.
“By a study of history," the department's statement in the university catalog says.
"the student is made conscious of the continuing process of change with which he Is confronted."
History, then, becomes the study of change, and there are few academic departments at UW-EC that face as much change as the History Department.
The most publicized recent change involved the faculty. The department dropped from 28.42 faculty positions in 1969-70 to 16.37 this year. Dr. Ronald E. Mlckei. department chairman, singles out the initiation of the General Studies Program, with the elimination of the six-credit history requirement, as the "primary reason for the decline in staff."
Enrollment decrease and budget cuts were other related reasons.
The drop In faculty positions has affected the curriculum, Mickel said.
"This year, we offered no upper-level courses In medieval. Renaissance, or Reformation history, he said. "Next year, we may be unable to offer any courses in Asian history."
Mickel also indicated that American diplomatic history may be cut back.
The cuts in faculty and courses at the junior and senior level drew criticism from faculty members and students In the department. he said.journalism
The Journalism Department will move Into the new humanities building in Spring,
1974, which, according to Elwood C. Karwand. department chairman, will triple the space and opportunities available to journalism students. The new facilities will provide better equipment for working with typography, photography, graphic arts and magazine publication, he said, with two editing labs, a radio-TV lab and a research room.
Karwand said he hopes that a public relations minor, an advertising major and a non-journalism minor for students interested In learning about the press instead of being the press, could be added to the department’s curriculum.
The Journalism Department is active In job placement for Its graduates and alumni, he said. The department has a placement paper which Is a biographical
listing of graduating journalism majors. Karwand said. This publication gives a short resume of each student and Is sent out to newspaper editors throughout the country. He noted that last year.
95% of the Journalism graduates received Jobs this way.
The antiquated press will be a thing of the past when the Journalism Department moves Into the Hibbard Humanities Building.
uvunxxxxxxxxvHave you ever experienced those confused library blues?
In order to combat the feeling, the Library Science and Media Education Department has designed a course welcoming new and old students into the big world of the William D. McIntyre Library. Offered for the second time this year. ‘How to Use a Library" is a two-credit course introducing students to the materials and services of the library.
According to department head Dr. Qlenn Thompson, enrollment In Library Science and Media Education courses has been steadily increasing. One of the major reasons for this increase. Thompson said, is the new requirement that elementary education majors declare a minor and a library science minor "fits rather nicely."
As part of the library science and media education minor, which Is all that Is available at this time, a student is required to work a minimum of 90 hours in the library or media center. Students in the School of Arts and Sciences fulfill their field experience at Luther Hospital, the vocational school and in various other libraries. Students in the School of Education are placed In cities such as Rice Lake and McFarland.
The library science and media education minor in the School of Education leads to state certification as a school librarian and an audio-visual coordinator whereas the Arts and Science student is certified to work as a public librarian.
library science and media education
The need for mathematics pervades every human endeavor, according to the department's new statement to appear In the 1974-75 catalog.
Dr. Marshall Wick, a professor of mathematics, said math emphasis has changed within the last ten years.
It used to be mostly concerned with the physical sciences, he said, but the social sciences—economics, geography, psychology and sociology—are Increasingly prone to mathematics.
A new course has been designed, with that In mind, Wick said. Finite Math will be offered In the fall of 1974. he said. Other courses are slanted toward general education such as Statistics and the short-course in calculus. Wick explained. They pertain less to theory and more toward application in other fields, he said.
Wick said the computer revolution is a contributing factor to the change In emphasis as it helps get past the routine problems In math.
The emphasis at Eau Claire is on understanding mathematics, not strictly as an end In itself, he said, but also on Its effective use In the solution of problems in a wide variety of fields.
Dr. Joseph Teeters displays an example of his art work designs Teeters uses geometric principles to create the art work.
The Department of Music at the University of Wisconsin—Eau Claire is housed In the Fine Arts Center. The facilities include a 600-seat Concert Hall with pipe organ, a recital hall, two rehearsal halls, a listening laboratory, studios, practice rooms, offices and classrooms.
The Department of Music offers several degree programs. The Bachelor of Music Education (BME) with certification K-12 with a choice of emphasis In instrumental, vocal, and elementary. The instrumental emphasis includes majors in various wind, percussion, and string Instruments; Bachelor of Music (BM) In vocal, piano, organ, instrumental and music therapy; Bachelor of Arts (BA) with majors In music—liberal arts. Instrumental teaching, vocal teaching, and minors In liberal arts and elementary education-music; Master of Science In Teaching Music (MST) and Master of Arts In Teaching Music (MAT).
It is the objective of the Department of Music to educate every student relative
to his individual needs, desires, and competencies. Because the Music Department is unique in the kinds of talents, performance media, teaching approaches, studio and classroom presentations, large and small ensemble organizations, and clinical and student teaching experiences made available, it likewise provides the student with a variety of instructional and technical experiences. The curriculum is revised periodically to meet the demands and standards of national certifying and accrediting agencies.
In addition to the programs offered to those students majoring In music, the department offers general studies courses for non-music majors and encourages all students at the University to audition for the various bands, choirs, and orchestra. The students at the University of Wisconsin—Eau Claire are provided a unique opportunity for pursuing music relative to their Interests and desires.physics
The Physics Department prepares students for Jobs In diversified fields. The department offers majors in four fields—
Liberal Arts, Education, Composite Physical Science and a Math-Physics combination.
Many of the department's graduates end up In research for Industry or Improved technology. Others work as computer programmers and systems designers and still others teach in high schools or become planetarium coordinators.
The department's courses range from astronomy to electronics and general physics courses. Included is Physical Science, which draws many education majors.
The astronomy program has grown over the years, largely due to increased Interest In outer space. It is one of the most active branches of the department with the L. E. Phillips Planetarium and Casey Observatory drawing outside Interest from the community as well as the university.
L. E. Phillips Planetarium
The L. E. Phillips Planetarium, located In Phillips Hall, offers interesting and Instructive entertainment to students, faculty and the general public. Built with donated funds from Lewis E. Phillips, the sky theatre is surrounded by the J. Newman Clark Bird Museum. Robert C. Elliott, assistant professor of astronomy, Is the planetarium director, and has been for eight years.
The planetarium operates much like a huge projector with a dome 24 feet in diameter as the screen. Light is projected through holes In the star ball onto the dome in the positions of the stars.
Most programs presented In the planetarium are given to area school children who visit the planetarium on field trips. Teachers of students from kindergarten through senior high age arrange programs through Robert Elliott, or a student planetarium secretary.
Elliott and a small staff of student assistants adjust the language, length, and visual effects of the program to suit the age group of the students.
In the last two years. Elliott and his student assistants have experimented with light shows In the planetarium.
The shows use taped -music (Carole King, Chicago, Moody Blues, 3 Dog Night, and others) along with special effects from the planetarium Instrument to produce programs designed especially for students. Other programs for the adult and general public are educational, and Include presentations on Stonehenge, mythology, the total solar eclipse of 1973, and the Christmas Star.
The planetarium is also used by the physical science and astronomy classes to study the movements of the planets, sun and moon through the sky. and to familiarize students with the constellations and names of some of the brighter stars.political science
The Political Science Department will be moving to the new humanities building this spring. According to Dr. Patrick George, department chairman, the new building will provide the department with larger classrooms and office space.
George noted one of the major additions to next fall's curriculum could possibly be a political science teaching major.
Most of the curriculum was re-done last year, he said, and two courses were added. American Political Ideologies and American Political Issues.
This year, a group of political science majors and minors introduced a Political Science Film Series as an Instructional program.
George noted an Increased popularity of political science on campuses today. He said that the popularity fluctuates with the current political issues in the United States and the world. This year's enrollment was the largest ever, he said, however, the department did not grow along with the rest of the university.
Faculty members end students discuss the movie "Ramparts of Clay” as part of a political science program.
Student representatives to the political science department for the 1973-74 school year are Brian Gold beck. Tony LaChapelle and JoAnne Brandes.
Developing an appreciation and awareness of the differing personalities of Individuals Is one of the basic goals of any psychology major, according to Dr. Elmer Sundby. department chairman. To aid psychology students In developing this awareness, he said, the department offers several courses Involving the observation of people.
Child and Educational Psychology allows students to observe the child In his role
as playmate and student. Sundby explained. Abnormal Psychology, he added. Involves taking a field trip to an institution to 1 experience the Individuality of the “handicapped".
A laboratory In Schneider Hall assists students In observing individual personalities, he said. However, when the
Psychology Department moves Into the new humanities building. Sundby said that students will be moving into a much more elaborate laboratory. According to Sundby. the laboratory will be equal to any psychology laboratory In the state, with the exception of the doctoral laboratories. Both animal and human laboratories will be built to aid students in learning, physiology and perception experiments.
In addition to the goal of developing an appreciation and awareness of Individuals. Sundby said the department’s major thrust is to develop a superior undergraduate program so students will be equipped to go on to graduate school and eventually become licensed.sociology

Picture yourself walking Into a "classroom” full of young eager children.
The "classroom" Is bedecked with building blocks, dolls and other youthful paraphernalia. There are no real desks and chairs.
The description above may sound like a kindergarten classroom, but for some social welfare students here, this was their college classroom.
This year a number of social welfare students fulfilled their field work requirements by working In social work agencies in the surrounding area, according to Department Chairman Dr. John Hunnlcutt. The students were Involved with both the handicapped and the aged, he said. Technically it is supposed to be learning
In the field ... with a definite educational objective, he explained.
Student social welfare workers went out to join the professionals, and Hunnlcutt said that professionals came here to join the students. This year the Sociology Department offered Criminal Law. a course enabling a few of the professionals In the community to further their education.
Criminal Law Involves defining and classifying criminal laws and discussing Wisconsin’s penal code, he said. The majority of the students enrolled In the class were professional social workers and probation and parole officers In the area. According to Hunnlcutt. the course Is "designed to Inform the social worker of the finer points of the law.” An Eau
1MClaire lawyer taught the course.
With the approval and adoption of the University's Mission statement, the Sociology Department will be strengthened and more diversified, Hunnicutt said.
In the mission statement, he said, they outlined five new programs for the next five years.
Besides beginning the graduate program, Hunnicutt explained plans for a major in anthropology. Just recently, an anthropology minor was approved and with the hiring of an additional faculty member, the minor will be offered In the fall of 1974, he said. Also being planned is a major and minor in education and a new major In criminal justice which, he said, will "emphasize the breadth of liberal arts."
According to Hunnicutt, the criminal justice program will be "the first priority in the next five years."
Presently, there has been approval of a departmental Independent studies course and field study In sociology besides that in social welfare, he added.

WThe Speech Department is unique in that it combines diversified areas Into one department. Communicative disorders, public address and communication theory, theater and oral interpretation and radio and television are separate areas of concentration, but they are common to the field of speech, according to Dr. Calvin Quayle. department chairman.
Majors are offered in all but one area, radio and television. Students combine courses from each of the four fields to comprise a required core of 23 credits, then specialize in their major interest, he explained. Communicative disorders is a comprehensive major.
Theater majors may also take a comprehensive course of study. Quayle said.
The Speech Department oversees the theater program during the academic year and Patio Playhouse during the summer. The theater program produces between seven and nine major shows a year Including Interpretive Theater. Patio Playhouse is a summer stock company
made up of students working for credit and former students who serve as professional actors, he said. Theater students also present an average of 60 productions each year as part of their class requirements, he added.
Both forensics and debate programs are operated by the department, but Quayle said they are all-university activities and report to the vice chancellor.
The Speech Department Is trying to implement a Master of Arts In speech which was approved once but was "killed" during the merger of state university systems, he said. Quayle said the department would like to offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts In Theater and a combination major of English and Speech.
A course In non-verbal communication has been approved but It has never been offered. Quayle said.
The department is trying to hire an additional faculty member, he explained, so the course, which will be a study of communication through gestures, facial expressions and body language, can be offered.
Quayle said the communicative disorders graduate program must also grow to accommodate the state requirement for a masters degree for teacher certification effective in July. 1975.philosophy
The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies will be moving into the new Richard Hibbard Humanities Building.
Dr. Phillip Griffin, department chairman Is optimistic about another new development in the department—the addition of a liberal arts minor In religious studies.
Dr. Willis Gertner, who proposed the minor, said It will consist of courses about the Old or New Testaments. Eastern World Religions such as Buddism. and Hinduism, early and modern Christianity, women and religion, psychology of religion, current religious issues and a religious studies seminar.
Several of the courses required for the religious studies minor will be offered for the first time next fall.physical
Until this year, a physical education major was offered only for women. Dr.
Ida Hinz, department chairman said.
Previously men could only minor in physical education here. Now. according to an amendment to the Education Amendments Act of 1972, men cannot be denied a major in physical education. Course requirements are the same for both men and women, she said, except for team sports and gymnastics which have to be taught separately.
The department now offers majors and minors to both men and women in physical education In teaching and. Hinz added, a minor for non-education students who are interested in jobs in recreation.school of
Student nurses make approximately 4.000 visits during the school year to Individuals and families in the Eau Claire community, according to Marilyn Burgess, chairman of Community Health Nursing.
The students work under faculty supervision through the Eau Claire City-County Health Department, she said.
Nursing Is unique In the sense that all of its laboratories are live laboratories for the student, Bernice Wagner, Medical-Surgical Nursing Chairman said.
The students have the privilege of stepping Into the world they will be working with as a graduate, she added.
Approximately 16 hours a week are spent by student nurses in clinical settings in the community, stated Patricia Crisham. chairman of Psychiatric Nursing. They have the opportunity to work with and observe patients from the second semester of their sophomore year on. she said. Students working with mental health patients have a chance to use themselves to reach and influence another person, she explained.
The clinical courses allow the student nurses to apply and use what they have learned In the classroom. Sr. Joel Jacobi, chairman of Nursing Leadership, said.
At the end of each year. 90 freshmen are admitted to the School of Nursing.
There are seven men currently In the school. Sr. Joel said she believes that nursing Is a great field for men and she thinks they have something to contribute to the profession.
In addition to preparing students to become professional nurses, the School of Nursing feels a responsibility to update the knowledge and skills of nursing practitioners In northwest Wisconsin. said Mary Dunn. Maternal-Child Health Nursing chairman.

1973 BLUGOLDSGridders finish season at 5-5
The 1973 version of Head Coach Link Walker's Blugold football team finished the conference season tied with Oshkosh for fourth place with a 4-4 record and was 5-5 for the entire season.
In analyzing the 1973 season. Walker said. "It was a frustrating season to lose five games by a total of 31 points. It's a real difficult thing when the worst you lose any one game is by seven points.
"The biggest contribution to the defeats were penalties at the most inopportune times. Considering some of the bad breaks we had. I thought the kids hung in there real well."
In the season opener at Winona State. Coach Walker was able to substitute freely as the Blugolds romped to a SI-13 victory. Quarterback Tom Bauer led a charged-up offense In the victory while linebacker Steve Marlin returned two interceptions for touchdowns defensively.
In the Eau Claire home opener against Augsburg, the Blugolds saw a great victory crumble to defeat when Augsburg completed a long pass for a touchdown with 30 seconds left to win 21-17.
After the first three conference games, the Blugolds found themselves alone In first place with a 3-0 record.
The first conference win was a 13-6 victory over a fast River Falls team and the second a 23-12 victory over rival Stout. The third consecutive win was a 21-0 win over Superior in a game that was played in
a continual downpour.
After the next three games, the Blugolds found themselves with a .500 record as they dropped all three games by a total of 19 points.
The first loss was 15-9 to Oshkosh. Both teams were affected by a 30-to-40 m.p.h. wind but especially Tom Bauer who threw four key Interceptions.
The Blugolds showed they were a great team offensively between the twenties In this game.
The losing streak continued when the NAIA’s fifth-ranked team, the LaCrosse Indians invaded Carson Park for homecoming.
The Blugolds had two touchdowns called back because of penalties and lost the game 14-7 despite the fact they outgained the Indians 315 yards to 207.
Another game in the rain accounted for the third consecutive loss when Blue-gold turnovers helped White-water to a 13-7 win.
The highlight of the season was in the Stevens Point game, against the "aerial circus." After falling behind 24-7 in the first quarter, the Blugolds rallied for an Impressive record-setting 56-24 triumph.
In the season finale, a late Eau Claire rally was throttled inside the Platteville 10 yard line as the Blugolds ran out of downs In a 13-6 loss to the Pioneers.
Offensively, the Blugolds averaged 304 yards per game, the second best total In their history. They controlled the ball for
70 minutes more than their opponents.
Leading the charge offensively was center Ken Bergeson who was named to the All-conference first team.
In complimenting Bergeson. Walker said:
"Bergy played extremely well which was easy to go unnoticed because he was so consistent.
He was a very fine blocker."
Also named to the first team All-Conference list was tight end Steve Woletz. Woletz finished the 1973 season with 23 receptions for two touchdowns. But his real value was explained by Coach Walker: "Steve was the best blocking lineman I've ever seen in Eau Claire besides being a good receiver." he said. "I feel he’ll have a strong opportunity to have a tryout with a pro team."
Other offensive players receiving conference honorable mention were Tom Bauer and Steve Cooley.
The defense established a school record and ranked as one of the leading teams In the nation in Interceptions with 29. Linebacker Steve Martin set a single season interception record by picking off eight enemy aerials.
Defensive players receiving conference honorable mention were Craig Mohr. Len Luedtke. Phil Martlnelll and Steve Martin.
Coach Walker described the senior Mohr in this way. "Fora 175 pound kid, he was the toughest we've had around here.
He was a fine pass rusher." Mohr wasnamed honorary cocaptain for 1973.
Len Luedtke was named the most valuable defensive player for the second year in a row. Of Luedtke and Martlnelll. Coach Walker said, "They played fine football this year and we're looking for them to be real leaders next year."
Quarterback Tom Bauer closed out a brilliant career as a Blugold in 1973 and was named the team’s MVP for 1973 by his teammates.
Bauer's career totals are staggering.
He rushed for 2.153 yards and 33 touchdowns and passed for 4.289 yards and 30 touchdowns, giving him 6,442 yards total offense, an average of 161 yards per game.
The 1973 season was Bauer's best In passing yardage and total offense as he averaged 136.6 and 174.4 yards respectively.
In four seasons.
Bauer ranked second In the conference three times and third once in total offense. In his Junior year, he led the conference in scoring and was the second leading rusher.
Bauer was the ail-conference quarterback In 1971. the Blugold player of the week 11 times in his career and the conference player of the week seven times. Bauer was named an honorary Co-captaln for 1973.
Coach Walker describes Bauer: "Tom has to be rated as one of the great Eau Claire quarterbacks to perform here."
On the other end of the Mr. Fling to Mr.
Cling combination was the school’s all-time leading receiver. Steve Cooley. Cooley finished the 1973 season with 47 receptions for 763 yards, the latter a school single season record.
Cooley closed out his brilliant career with 147 catches for 2,220 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Cooley caught the eye of pro scouts and Coach Walker had this to add.
"I felt Cooley was the best receiver in the league. He was a fine all-around athlete and I felt he was our most consistent player this fall.” Summing up his 1973 team, Coach Walker said: “This was a real courageous group. They had a lot of misfortune but they kept coming back, which was really evident in the Stevens Point game."harriers finish in second division

The group was relatively young, with only 12 veteran performers In the 22 member ensemble. But they filled the concert hall with swinging sounds of expertise although they had only six and one-half weeks of practice to their credit.
The concert featured three pieces composed and arranged by Dominic Spera, director of the ensemble. Including “Patty", written for his wife, which featured solo work by Cathy Otterson on alto saxophone. The ballad was serene and moving, a quiet Interlude from the big brass sound of most of the concert.

The ensemble featured 14 solos, giving the audience the opportunity to hear, Individually, the many talents of the players.Ford takes vice presidential oath

decision on income taxesBeauties,
Underneath the ugly exterior lurked a human being and next to “it" was the young maiden, untouched by the ugliness that surrounded her.
Sounds like a classic scene from a grade-B movie— perhaps "The Girl and the Gob Revisited."
But it was only the Blugold and "the girl" had nothing to fear from "the gob." He was a good gob because his appearance helped to net $525 for the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity who donated the money to the Sunburst Children's Home.
Dorms, sororities and fraternities sponsored candidates for the Ugly Man on Campus contest which was held in conjunction with an auction. Local businessmen donated all of the merchandise except for the Fiji sign, the Slg Tau box and Dr. Drury Bagwell's office nameplate, which were duly redeemed by their owners—for a price, of course.
When It was all over. Barb Manthey. sponsored by the APO Little Sisters, was named beauty-in-residence and Mark Savino, an AKL. was voted best beast.With the spin of a wheel, fortunes were made and lost. One card made the trip from rags to riches an easy one. For a few hours, students could forget about their impending finals and play make-believe.
Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity provided the escape hatch, commonly referred to as Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo is an annual AKL event simulating the best Las Vegas has to offer — booze, broads and bucks.
Would-be gamblers were given $200 In fake money and proceeded to make a killing or lose their shirts at roulette, black jack, poker, solitaire, seven-and-five-card-stud. chuck-a-luck and wheels of fortune.
Any profits gained after a night of reckless living and wild abandon could be cashed in for prizes donated by local businessmen.
Proceeds from the event were used by AKL and the AKL Little Sisters to sponsor a Christmas party for underprivileged children.
Monte Carlo: fun and games
AKL’s bring Christmas to kids
With the memory of Monte Carlo still fresh in their minds, the Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity and AKL Little Sisters held their eighth annual Christmas party for underprivileged children.
Proceeds from Monte Carlo were used to brighten the holiday season for 46 children whose Christmas otherwise might not have been so memorable.
Each child was •'adopted" by members of AKL. who served as "parents." Presents were distributed by Santa Claus, games were played and supper was served. The Welfare Department assisted with the arrangements.BFA students exhibit art work

There's probably no street in Eau Claire more popular than the one named Water. It Is the hub of social life at UW-EC—the friendly port in a storm.
Every weekend the bars on Water Street come alive with teeming crowds out for a good time. Some have their favorite bars, while others are content to hop from one bar to the other, surveying the action.
Water Street is a good people place. You can always run into someone you know or someone you would like to know. But If your tastes run more to pacifism than activism. you can just watch the people around you.
Water Street is changeable. It can be whatever you want—a lonely place to drown your sorrows or a place to celebrate whatever seems right with the world at the moment.
Water Street Is many things. What It is and what it can be depends on the participants. Like anything else, you only get out of it what you put into It.
a weekend wonderlandtDeCormier
The Robert DeCormier Singers presented a University Artists Series concert January 23 at the Arena. The program Included folk songs from around the world, an "American Sampler” of "Revolutionary Portraits." with settings by DeCormier. songs of humor and American Negro spirituals. The staging, lighting and accompaniment for the 13 singers were arranged as a total concept.
DeCormier. an arranger, composer, conductor and clinician, first gained nationwide recognition through his work as a conductor-arranger for Harry Belafonte.forum
Miller Williams, a contemporary poet, appeared at UW-EC on February 4. Williams, a professor at the University of Arkansas, has authored four books of poetry and several critiques of contemporary poets.
Williams gave his audience a glimpse of his life through a one-hour recitation of his poetry. His poems celebrated life and death, told of man's insecurity and humor, and the simplicity of children and their curiosity.
William's appearance was sponsored by the Cultural Commission and the English Department.
R. Buckminster Fuller, creator of the geodesic "Expo-Dome” and developer of the concept of synerglstics. was a Forum speaker on January 30.
Fuller spoke to an audience of about 2.000 In the Arena. The 78-year-old Fuller never prepares his speeches, preferring to say whatever comes Into his head.
Fuller’s ultimate goal Is to "do more with less" without exploiting man's rights. His geodesic dome, which housed the American exhibit at the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, expresses this ambition. It is the strongest, lightest method yet devised for enclosing space.
The key to man’s survival lies in himself and his mind. Fuller said. We must stop wasting non-renewable resources and start using the Inexhaustible resources of the sun, wind and tides, he said, and begin to think of ourselves as world citizens.Sexuality:
a need for more understanding
Sexuality. The one basic quality everyone shares and yet knows so little about. Despite all the "frank." adults-only film and literature seen and read by college students, many are Ignorant of their own sexuality.
And for some. It's an unwanted pregnancy that causes them to seek help.
Dr. Jeanne Hugo, counselor at the Counseling Service in Schofield Hall, is actively involved in what she calls "pregnancy counseling," an assistance to girls who are pregnant— or fear they are—and unmarried.
According to Dr. Hugo, the girls who come to her office have been referred there by resident assistants, friends or the Health Service. On a one-to-one basis, they work together to discuss the problems and their solutions.
"Their minds are pretty well made up," Dr. Hugo said, "when they come to me. They already have decided that an abortion is their answer."
This is so often the case. Dr. Hugo explained.
that only a small percentage of the girls who have been in to see her have looked for other solutions besides abortion.
But Dr. Hugo stressed that the counseling office is not an abortion referral service; an abortion is only one alternative, and it is a "personal choice."
According to the counselor, abortion is only a symptom of the problem. The Wisconsin state law that forbids dispensing contraceptives to unmarried persons needs changing, she said. Equally Important, she believes, is sex education early in the primary grades. Today, we still have college students whose ignorance of basic sexual functions she described as "pathetic."
"So many are already into it." she explained, "without proper knowledge of what they are doing."
As a result, the Counseling Service, along with others on campus, is involved in a program of assistance in the area of sexuality. In addition to the pregnancy counseling, the Counseling Center
contacted the Planned Parenthood organization to speak to R.A.s and students in the dormitories.
Nursing instructors, meeting with small groups in the dorms, have led discussions about contraception. Although it does not provide pregnancy tests, the Health Service will provide Pap tests and pelvic examinations for those who request them. Dr. Hugo said.
In addition, the Counseling Center previewed tape cassettes and filmstrips dealing with sex and contraception that, if accepted, would be available for student use. she said. Student rap sessions were planned, dealing not only with sex. but also trust, love and honesty. Her office also worked with the administration to obtain the pamphlet Sex Is Never An Emergency lor campuswide distribution, she added.
All this was done in an attempt to replace ignorance with knowledge-before it is too late.
230Life on campus
Living In a dorm Is an Integral part of the college experience. For most. It's their first crack at independence. Some take advantage of the opportunity, others choose not to.
Life in a dorm can be a great teacher.
You can learn how to relate to people, especially the all-important roommate.
Getting a roommate can be likened to playing Russian roulette and the stakes are high—nine months of your life spent In a one-to-one relationship with another Individual In close quarters. Sometimes It works and other times it bombs. But in the true college spirit, you rally and carry on.
There are certain things peculiar to dorm life. The vending machines that show no mercy, the dryers that are full of everything but hot air and the stereos that have only one volume—loud.
But the good times and the people you meet along the way make up for any of the inconveniences. When you think about It. many of the friends you have for the duration of college are those you met the first year here. In the dorms.
Dorm living is fun. It has Its bad moments and It has Its good ones. And you can always count on the good ones outnumbering the bad.Life off campus
Haggling over the food budget, delegation of household chores and dlwylng up of the electric and telephone bills are all part of living off campus.
Most UW-EC students elect to move out of “dorm city" after their sophomore or junior year to make It on their own In an apartment or rented house. For many, this Is the first move towards total independence and that first job and apartment after college.
Some people choose to rent modern, furnished apartments complete with shag carpeting, the latest In kitchen appliances and even the pictures on the wall.
Others brave the experience of plastering, painting, reflnlshlng and furnishing a place just enough to make it liveable.
But no matter where you may choose to live or under what conditions, there is no denying that It Is the people who make any place a home.
241Burning the midnight oil
Contrary to popular opinion, a university Is meant to provide the student with a learning experience. Despite the heavy schedule of extra-curricular activities and a preoccupation with the finer things In life. It is necessary, every now and then to call time out and hit the books.
Studying is not now. never has been and undoubtedly never will be. one of the pleasurable aspects of college life.
But In order to keep a good thing going and keep the work-a-day world at bay for four more years, even the best student has to give In to the books. Reluctantly. to be sure.
Not everyone takes studying lightly, however. For many students the library is their second home. The only reason they don't live there is because there aren't any beds in the book stacks.
Study habits can make or break a college student. En route to a degree, you just might learn something.
M4246347Seigel-Schwall in concert
The Seigel-Schwall Blues Band concert in the Arena January 18 succumbed to one of the ever present hazards of performing there, namely the acoustics.
But the Seigel-Schwall band was mindful of the condition of their audience, who had been tortured by the volume of the J.B. Hutto and the Hawks back-up performance, and mercifully lowered the volume of their amplifiers.
The result was a much happier audience receptive to the honky-tonk performance of piano, harmonica and guitar blending to produce an enjoyable variety of rock, boogie and country music.
no"Whoopie" Week, a festival celebrating winter, got off to a slow start at UW-EC at the end of January. Sponsored by Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils. "Whoopie" picked up speed as the week wore on and was termed successful.
Uncooperative weather and crossed signals hampered some of the week's activities, but most of the events came off as scheduled.
Two dances were held In the Southwoods Room, one featuring free beer and the other a "Hot Mama-Cool Daddy" costume contest.
A snow sculpture contest and a talent show were also held. A treasure hunt for the “Whoopiemobile." a 1964 Ford Galaxy 500. highlighted Friday's Happy Hour. Clues hidden at several bars gave the necessary information and Mike Vos became the proud owner of the car.
Part of "Whoople" Week was the appearance of Kris Kristofferson. a singer, composer, recording artist and actor. Kristofferson appeared In the Arena on Thursday. January 31.
In keeping with the general atmosphere of "Whoopie" Week, problems were encountered before the Kristofferson concert began.
The concert began 45 minutes late and most of the band members were suffering from the flu. But In the true spirit of show biz. the show went on.
Kristofferson. a graduate of Oxford, a Rhodes scholar. ex-English literature teacher at West Point and helicopter pilot Is heralded as one of the finest young songwriters around.
The concert featured some of Kristofferson’s top 40 hits such as "Help Me Make It Through the Night" and "Why Me?" He also performed some of his lesser known songs as well as those of other artists.
Kristofferson provided an evening of
entertainment, despite the troubles thrown In his path.
Kristofferson brings special entertainment to UW-EC233‘Spoon River’: poetry on stage
“Spoon River Anthology" Is different from the average play. Written by Edgar Lee Masters. "Spoon River Anthology" was originally a series of 224 free verse poems, but was adapted by Charles Aidman in 1963 to play form.
The revised form of "Spoon River Anthology" consists of 70 poems and 20 folk songs which helped set the play's mood. Ralph Witte and Barb Foard provided the music in the UW-EC production.
"Spoon River Anthology's" setting is a graveyard where long dead inhabitants of Spoon River talk about their lives.
Directed by William McDonnell, assistant professor of speech. "Spoon River Anthology" was presented here on January 31, February 1,
2. 3. 5. 6, 7 and 8 In the Riverside Theater.
Cast members Linda Heck. Joel Swandby,
Richard Erickson. Sarah Waxse. Norm Schroder. Denise Deluhery, Nancy Bradvik and Mike Welled had at least eight characters to podray.
Vocal direction was provided by Kathryn Proctor, music instructor; technical direction by Wayne Wolfed, associate professor of speech. A special square dance was choreographed by Vesta Buetow. physical education instructor.

Mansfield rejects Nixon requestGas shortage hits home
In the good old days of the roaring 20‘s, there was a popular song that contradicted itself before it got as far as the eighth bar. "Yes. We Have No Bananas" was the lament of the green grocer who had everything In stock but the yellow fruit.
In the modern days of the 70’s, the same song will suffice with only a few lyric changes. Change bananas to gasoline, the green grocer to the gas station attendant and you just might have a hit on your hands.
The advent of 1974 saw a shortage of many things, not the least of which was gasoline and home fuel oils. With temperatures inside hovering around 68 degrees, temperatures outside rose as tempers flared due to the gasoline shortage.
Wisconsin was not among the hardest hit. but it does hit hard to shell out more than 50 cents for a gallon of gasoline, no matter where you live.
Signs proclaiming purchasing limits, shortened station hours and dry pumps were a common sight.
As of this writing. March was about to enter like a lion, with no relief In sight. Maybe if the month came In like a tiger, we'd know why there weren't any in our tanks.
When asked what to do about a shortage of gas in the olden days, the answer was to eat beans. But the Department of Agriculture announced in February that they're in short supply, too.

The end of the school year brings a lot of things, not the least of which is the Periscope.
The Periscope. UW-EC's yearbook, is the product of months of work on the part of the student staffers. Deadlines are especially hectic because all the parts are supposed to fall into place, but that doesn't always happen. Last minute changes or complete overhauls are not uncommon.
The Periscope combines the talents of stu dent photographers with that of student writers who try to make a picture worth more than a 1.000 words by trying to add some of their own.
A school yearbook's true value is hard to assess, especially now. But In later years it serves as a valuable reminder of days gone by.

364Nassif Dancers display talents
A two-day dance clinic was held here by the Anna Nassif Dance Theatre February 21 and 22.
Teachers' clinics, master classes, a lecture-discussion and a dance concert were all part of the company's busy schedule. During their campus appearance, the five graduate and post-graduate University of Wisconsin-Madlson dancers demonstrated contemporary dance, modern dance, round and folk dance and ballet.
The group, under the direction of Anna Nassif, UW's choreographer-ln-resldence. tours the state promoting interest in dance. The dancers are sponsored by the University of Wisconsin—
After three weeks of hard work and rehearsal. the stage is theirs for only 20 minutes.
But 20 minutes were all that Pat O'Brien and his troupe of players had been counting on.
O'Brien, a student In the advanced directing class, was doing his class project "Comedia," a mime. All students in the class are required to direct a portion of a play which includes casting, blocking. Improvisation, rehearsing and all the other major and minor details Involved In play production.
Student productions are constantly in the works. The Speech Department estimates that between 50 and 60 are presented each year.
For O'Brien, or any other student director, play rehearsals must be Juggled around classes, work and sometimes rehearsals for other plays.
The flourishes and um-pah-pah's of John Phillip Sousa were spliced together Into a story-telling soundtrack. "Comedia" was full of Chaplin-like antics with no dialogue, which makes character portrayal even harder. A calisthenics period was held before each rehearsal to limber-up the actors’ muscles.
Naturally a project like this takes a lot of work, but the students In the class know that ahead of time. They are limited only by their own imaginations which makes for limitless experimentation and Innovation.
247mime: silent art
The Wisconsin Mime Company presented various mimes, a dramatic "non-verbal communication" using the whole body to develop characters, at the Riverside Theater on February 27.
Sketches including "The Shower Bath." "First Recitation." and vignettes of Appalachian folk life were performed. The artists carried their own set complete with "dressing rooms" and curtain which enabled them to put their make-up on in front of the audience.
The Company, whose appearance here was sponsored by the Cultural Commission, travels throughout Wisconsin presenting their art.

Lt. Gov. Martin Schreiber was a special Forum speaker on February 20.
Speaking about his work as an ombudsman for Wisconsin's nursing homes. Schreiber said he investigated individual nursing homes in the state under a pilot program begun In 1971 after President Nixon decided to prevent nursing homes from being "dumping grounds" for the elderly.
Schreiber said patients were neglected, insufficiently cared for and served improperly prepared food.
Schreiber said part of the problem of nursing homes is the state's board system of government which isolates the governor from state agencies.
He advocated a switch to a cabinet form of government where the governor would directly appoint and replace agency heads.

Father James Mason and Robert McKIUIp conduct Mass at Sacred Heart Chapel
Pastor Kurt Relchart prepares for Sunday Lutheran services.
In its own way. college tries to cater to the whole person. But that Is rather difficult in that the spiritual part of an individual is neglected.
Luckily for students at UW-EC. the Campus Ministry is here to take care of that part of their lives.
Under the direction of pastors Scott Cross. Kurt Reichardt and Robert McKlllip, the Campus Ministry is an Involved part of campus life. The Ecumenical Religious Center is open to various groups as a meeting place and has housed many different seminars and activities.
The Campus Ministry offers counseling services and. of course, religious services.
They involve students and faculty beyond
the student-teacher relationship. Services are contemporary and relate to the needs of individuals trying to confront the world around them.
But they also try to go beyond that point with seminars, discussions and group activities such as Mardi Gras, pictured on the opposite page.
Mardi Gras Is a traditional bash held before the Lenten season. This year's Mardi Gras was held in the Southwoods Room of Davies Center.
This year, the Campus Lutheran Church was the first campus church In the nation to officially become an American Lutheran Church-Lutheran Church of America university parish.
290Is tenure for real?
Tenure, according to Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary Is "a status granted after a trial period to a teacher protecting him from summary dismissal."
But. it doesn't always work that way.
Seven tenured professors and one tenured non-teaching faculty member were notified last May that they were going to be laid off at the end of the 1973-74 school year. Hardest hit of the four departments that contained dismissed faculty was the history department.
Dr. Gary Pennanen. Dr. Steven Gosch and Paulis Lazda all came from that department. Others were Stephen Katroslts and Anders Shafer, art; Dr. Rodney Bunker, political science; Richard Gunn, foreign language and Alfred Anderson, student affairs manager.
The notifications became necessary when the Central Administration of the University of Wisconsin System told each campus that based on enrollment protections and productivity losses, along with the budget reductions due to them, professors would have to be laid off. The tenured professors with the least seniority In the affected departments were given one year's notice.
In all. 88 tenured positions around the state were eliminated, but this number has since been reduced to 54.
According to John W. Morris, vice chancellor for academic affairs. Wisconsin is not the only state with faculty layoffs, the nation as a whole is being affected.
The reduction in departments is mainly focused on history. English, political science, art and foreign language.
The English Department here has not had to lay off any faculty yet because non-tenured professors just are not having
their contracts renewed. But. Morris said, the department is running out of nontenured people and may soon have to release tenured professors.
The main factor behind faculty layoffs is the decrease or stabilization or enrollment in each department affected.
Funds are based on enrollment and there is the problem of who is eligible for what funds. Many departments are still overstaffed while many others are understaffed. Morris said.
The decrease in student enrollment is being caused by students entering vocational and professional on-the-job training instead of universities. Morris said, and many lower level schools are leveling off and many liberal arts teachers are not finding jobs.
Morris believes the state owes something to those professors who are facing the prospect of losing their jobs. State help will be given to professors to retrain in areas where a demand exists. Also, nonteaching posts will be given to those within the university who meet the minimum requirements for such jobs as housing and student personnel.
Here at UW-Ec. the tenure problem has had a partially happy ending as all seven of the dismissed faculty have been rehired for next year, four of them unconditionally. But those In the History Department are still subject to dismissal next year.
Morris hopes it will not become necessary to dismiss three other professors whose positions have been deferred, even though their departments may be overstaffed. Hopefully, he said, alternate assignments will be found.x

In the afternoon, the orchestra presented the annual Young People's Concert In the Arena for area school children.
At 8 p.m., the symphony, under the direction of Kenneth Schemerhorn, performed three works, including one by LaCrosse-born composer Robert Moevs. Entitled "Main-Traveled Roads." the work Is based on the Hamlin Garland stories of Wisconsin with the same title. It was commissioned by the Wisconsin American Revolution Bicentennial Commission and the Milwaukee Symphony Women's League to commemorate the 200th birthday of the United States.
Stravlnksy's Suite from the ballet "The Firebird" and the Symphonique Fan-tastique. Opus 14A by Berlioz were also presented.
Harpist Nlcanor Zabaleta performed at UW-EC on February 15 as part of the University Chamber Series.
Spanish by birth, Zabaleta performs works written originally for the harp. When he began his career he searched through European libraries and found music for the harp among the compositions of the masters. Many modern composers have
written works especially for Zabaleta.
Zabaleta's harp Is special in that It has eight pedals instead of the usual seven. The extra pedal stops the vibrations of the lower wire strings.
His performance Included works by Beethoven. Handel, Rosetti and Viottl.
285"Are any of you carrying alcoholic beverages?" the Canadian Customs official asked. The bus load of 31 members of the Vann Klar Ski Club grew silent. The official paused for a moment, and when there was no reply, nodded to the driver and got off the bus. It was nearly midnight on February 22 when the bus crossed the border and headed toward Thunderbay. Ontario, for a weekend of skiing.
The 31 participants spent two nights at the Prince Arthur Hotel in Thunder-bay. and had two full days of skiing In the Thunderbay area. The weather was cold and clear, and there had been no snow, but the skiing conditions were good, though not excellent.
The group skied the first full day.
Saturday. February 23. at Loch Lomond and Sunday at Candy Mountain. Both hills were icy, but the longer ski runs found in Canada proved rewarding, as did the empty slopes. For some reason the Canadian skiers had abandoned the hills, and the Americans had it pretty much to themselves. There were no casualties and hardly any hangovers.

The latest in campus fads hit Eau Claire with bare-ly any warning. Signs of an early spring brought students out in droves to enjoy the weather. It also prompted some students out of their clothes for a quick run in the altogether.
"Who was that masked man?" was an often repeated question as students discovered a new sport requiring very little talent and quite a bit of courage.
The night the Blugolds won the District 14 basketball playoffs and a berth In the N.A.I.A. championships at Kansas City was a particularly good night for viewing man as Mother Nature intended him to be.
The “fun" was nipped In the bud as Old Man Winter swept in a few days later for one last fling before relinquishing his hold on the season. Even the most courageous streaker has to draw the line somewhere.
Barry Drake. 28-year-old Capitol recording guitarist, played at the Cabin Cafe March 4 through March 9. The National Coffee House Circuit performer entertained students with a variety of songs. Drake writes most of his own songs, drawing on his years of experience on the road. He has cut an album called "Happylandlng."
The art of dance is often used as a basis for communication. Through graceful, flowing body movements the message comes across.
The polka is just one of many dance forms and its message always seems to be. "Hey, this is really fun."
On March 9. Towers President s Board sponsored a polka dance in Crest Commons which was attended by about 300 free-wheeling, fun-loving students.
The music of the Frank Klnayskl band set the pace for the Flying Dutchman, schotlsche. Polish polkas and waltzes, with "Kansas City” played intermittently through the night.
Polka dancing Is a lot of work and not everyone could capture a loving cup for his efforts, but it makes for a nice change-of-pace evening.

Blugolds Rebuild, Regroup, Share Conference Title
Eau Claire compiled a 14-2 conference record and went on to finish the season at 24-5.
The Golds had no problem in their first six games, winning all of them handily, but when they took to the road against Whitewater the Blugolds were held to a season low of 53 points.
The Fifth Annual Holiday Classic championship once again proved that Eau Claire was a powerhouse team. The Blugolds first knocked off Wabash 76-70, as Rich Reitzner pumped In 20 points and Randy Wade collected 14 rebounds.
Eau Claire won decisively over Armstrong State 94-76 to win the championship. Jeff Healy poured In his season high of 22 points and Scott Howard contributed 12 boards. The game started off In see-saw fashion until midpoint In the first half when the Blugolds hit ten straight points and led 23-16.
From that point on. Eau Claire cushioned Its lead to win their third Holiday Classic since It began in 1969. Wade was nominated most valuable player and to the All-Tournament first team along with Reitzner. Wade said. "I played well, but any other member on our winning team could have gotten It."
The Bulldogs stopped Eastern Michigan 83-74 before making road trips to Western Illinois and Northern
Michigan and losing to both. This was when the coach started rotating the team members and the transfers made it into the lineup. Were the first semester starters afraid of losing their regular positions?
Reitzner said. "No, not really. I thought I was playing well and besides we let the coach make the decisions. I just play the game."
Ralph Rasmuson and Romie Thomas became eligible, while Howard quit the squad reportedly because he felt unhappy over not getting Into the Eastern Michigan game. That game was preceded by a high school contest between Howard's alma mater Chetek and Cornell. Regarding Howard's resignation. Coach Ken Anderson said. "I thought it was a bad Judgment on his part. Being a sophomore, he had everything ahead of him."
The Blugolds came roaring back, facing conference opponents and winning 13 straight. One of the more exciting games during that span took place at Plattevllle. when Eau Claire was down 77-76 with one second remaining. Wade let loose of the ball from 20 feet out and the Blugolds won 78-77. What were the chances of sinking that last second shot? Wade explained. "Anyone of us could've taken it and there wasn't any time left." He said later. "That was the greatest moment of the season for me."
The biggest point spread for Eau Claire took place at Superior, when the Blugolds annihilated the Yellowjackets 114-76. Rasmuson led the scoring and rebounds for Eau Claire with 28 and 13 respectively.
The final regular season game took place at Stout where the Blugolds fell short. 98-81. The Blue Devils were in command the whole game concentrating their defense on Reitzner and Wade. Eau Claire fouls totaled 31 and Stout connected on 30 of 42 charity tosses which was devastating for the Blugolds. The loss resulted in Eau Claire having to share the conference title with Whitewater.
Dennis Blunk, the 6'11" center who started in a couple games until the Injured Ken Kaiser was ready to return, became the team's bench cheerleader for the remainder of the season. Blunk said. "I'm only a freshman and have three more years to prove myself."
The Blugolds won 26 consecutive home court stands and 55 of their last 56 home contests During the season. Eau Claire was ranked tenth in the N.A.I.A. and 13th by U.P.I.

Coach Mary Mero said. "At least three girls have to score eight points or more In each event to qualify for Nationals. Coach Mero took individuals in class one and class two because Eau Claire didn't have enough gymnasts for a team and therefore couldn't place in the team standings.

314Although the 1974 yearbook is not yet complete—the Supplement containing the April and May events will be distributed in the fall—I'd like to take time here to explain a little about this book.
This yearbook was meant to be different. It was meant to be a book containing the events of the year, chronologically as they occurred. It is hoped that in this way you can open the book to page one and let it guide you through the year.
I have tried to incorporate some news of international and national impact. Eau Claire is not an island unto itself. Eau Claire and this university are part of a much larger entity and the events of the world affect us greatly. The news pages for each month were designed to focus on these events and then let you relate them to what was happening in Eau Claire and at the university.
There were events, activities and people which we either forgot to include at the time of publication or which we were unable to cover because of time conflicts. To those people involved we extend our apologies.
This yearbook will have accomplished its goal if in 10 years Eau Claire students can look at the 1974 yearbook and visualize not only their involvement in school activities that year, but their involvement in the world as well.

Madison took the state title with 86 points, followed by LaCrosse. 66; and Stevens Point. 65.
Marl Kalalr was the only Blugold to earn a first. She threw the discus 116’4W breaking her own state record of 114’ 6".
According to Coach Alice Gansel. Kalalr s performances were a bright spot of the season.
“We have some excellent hur.dlers and short distance people, and some excellent discus people,” she said, “but we were weak as a team In distance runners".
Gansel feels that the women’s athletic program has progressed pretty rapidly In the past few years, but it is now at a point where more staff is needed or else some programs will have to be dropped. Each of the women coaches Is responsible for two sports, which sometimes overlap, she said.
Interest has picked up in women s sports.
Gansel said and is reflected In the fact that more people come out for teams.

The 1974 Blugold tennis team won the conference championship, snapping Oshkosh's nine-year reign as conference champions. The title represents the first ever for a Blugold tennis squad in the 20-year history of conference tennis tournaments. The Blugolds had all six singles players reach the finals of conference competition with Paul Christopher winning No. 1. John Christopher No. 2. and Joe Moschkau No. 5. Two of the three Blugold doubles teams also reached the finals, but lost.
In the process of warming up tor conference and district competition, the Blugolds posted the best dual meet record in the school's history at 15-3.
The only losses were to Big Ten opponents Minnesota and Wisconsin and also to Gustavus Adolphus, the No. 3 finisher in last year’s national NAIA meet.
During the dual meet season, the Blugolds snapped Oshkosh's winning streak against conference opponents in dual meets at 39.
The Blugolds tied for the district championship and thus qualified their entire team for competition in the national meet at Kansas City. June 4-7.
Three players earned all-district recognition for their efforts. John Christopher was the singles runner-up and the doubles team of Kent Shanks and Wendy Wojner reached the semi-finals. District competition differs from conference meets in that there is an open flight of singles and an open flight of doubles competition.
Last year, the Blugolds were 21st In the national tournament and will be aiming for a higher finish this year.

The Chippewa River never even came near the flood level this year because of the gradual thaw this spring.
The sun shone for a week and then disappeared leaving students to their studies without worry of the temptations of Big Falls and the sun deck.
But. just in time for the last few days of finals week, the sun returned to end the year on a bright note.
Billed as "the grandaddy of them all,” Tornado Watch hit Eau Claire on Saturday. May 4.
The eighth annual beer bash was attended by an estimated 6.000 people who paid $3 each to drink beer and listen to the music of Sweet Dreams and Black Water Gold.
The day started at 8:30 a.m. at a Water Street bar to give earlybirds a headstart at attaining a state of drunken stupor. At 10 a m., the action shifted to the sand and gravel pits where more than 400 quarter-barrels of beer were consumed. Buses left Towers at regular Intervals taking students out to the drinking grounds. There were people from all over the state and some from out-of-state partaking in the festivities.
In general, “a good time was had by all."
The largest class In the history of the UW-EC graduated on the morning of May 18. Commencement exercises for the 870 graduates were held in the University Arena.
Chancellor Leonard Haas delivered the charge to the graduating class and conferred their degrees.
