1976 Periscope University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Eau Claire, Wisconsin; -Volume 60mat7It really burns me when my friends from Madison cut down Eau Claire. I really believe I'm receiving just as good an education as they are.”10Family, £aith first On September 12, in the crowded UWEC nrena. John Wooden, former basketball coach at UCLA proved to be a many faceted man. He revealed himselt as a deeply religious humanitarian and devoted family man, yet a tough competitor. Wooden's competitiveness is evident by his astounding record of 8 consecutive victories and 10 national championships but he did not emphasize this achievement. Rather, he talked about his players and years at UCLA and other schools with a carefully blended mixture of humorous anecdotes and common sense. There was the time Bill Walton refused to shave. Wooden told Walton that he couldn't force hint to shave; it was Walton's decision. But it was Wooden's decision whether or not Walton would play in the game. Walton shaved. His family side appeared with an ancedote: Once when one of Wooden's granddaughters was listening to a tape recording of an introduction of him. she asked if he was embarrassed to hear the things said about him. One of Wooden’s other granddaughters replied. "Can’t you see he’s lapping it up?” Wooden talked about his religious convictions too. Everyone has to have faith in something and if someone is searching for faith, he's found it. Wooden believes. During his coaching career, he stressed personal integrity more than winning. He said that an athlete should have character—not l e one. Coals must be set which have nothing to do with the outcome of the game, he said. "The | eace of mind which can be attained only by knowing that you have done your best." is Wooden’s description of success. "Failure is not a disgrace if you gave all that you had.” Wooden began devising the formula for his "Pyramid of Success" in the middle 1930s and completed it in 1948. Built of such elements as competitiveness. greatness, poise, skill and self-control, he attributes his success to this pyramid which he maintains gives him a sense of fulfillment and inner peace. 13 UWEC: Population In spring 1975, the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents imposed an enrollment ceiling of 9.384 students for Eau Claire's 1975-76 school year. Last fall, UWEC began its 60th year with 9.859 students, well above the established ceiling and a record enrollment for the University. Q. WHY WERE SO MANY STUDENTS ACCEPTED. CHANCELLOR HAAS? A. We actually enrolled 130 fewer new student than in the fall of 1974 hut we were off by about four per cent on our estimate of returning students, even though we had gone by figures on continuing students accumulated over a 10-year period. Q. WERE ANY PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS TURNED AWAY? A. We turned away over a thousand students because there was no room for them, either under the ceiling, or for lack of housing. Q. WHY HASN'T ADDITIONAL HOUSING BEEN BUILT TO ACCOMMODATE THE OVERFLOW OF STUDENTS? A. In 1969 when more students wanted the freedom of ofT-campus housing, the University appealed to the Board of Regents to build an apartment complex near Howard Johnson’s. This complex would eventually house two to three thousand students. At that time, many Wisconsin schools were having difficulty filling the dorms due to decreases in enrollment. The Board of Regents decided that no more housing would be built until all available housing was occupied. Q. WHERE ARE ALL OF THE STUDENTS LIVING? A. Housing for students is at 105 per cent capacity in the residence halls with lounges converted to living quarters. One hundred students are9,859 housed in the Ramada Inn, 53 at St. Bede’s Priory, and 200 men have been accommodated in a mobile home village on Highway 12 which the owner has adapted for student residence. The remainder of the students live off campus in apartments and student homes. Q. CAN THE UNIVERSITY SCHOLASTICALLY ABSORB THE OVERFLOW? A. We can handle up to 10,000 students but we are trying now to stabilize. There are two major ways to compensate the increase in enrollment—additional staff and better distribution of students in classes. Thirty-four new staff positions were anticipated this year but we realize now that we'll need more than this. The class distribution of 10 in one class and 60 or more in another has not yet evened out. Q. ARE THERE ANY PLANS FOR EXPANSION TO ACCOM-MODATE STUDENTS? A. Yes. The Davies Center addition, scheduled for completion in February of 1977, will provide more room for students. St Rede's Priory, which house t 53 MVEC women, is located three and one half miles outside Eau Claire. A shuttle bus is used to travel to and from campus. Each room at St Bede's is divided by a partition and provides living space for four women Chancellor Haas, an Eau Clair alumnus and a member of the faculty from 1911. succeeded William R Davies os President in I960. 15I Assignment: Design and market public transit Color is a key to the ETC system The buses are colorful both inside and out and the maps, schedules and pathfinder signs are coded by color, name and number UWEC art students have pooled their talents over the past two years in a unique project—the design and marketing of a public transit system for the city. By September 1975, it was estimated that 5.000 man-hours had been spent on the Eau Claire Transit Com|»any (ETC) project. The tulent and effort of the students was reflected in a recent letter to the city by Nicholas Bade, marketing program manager for the I’rban Mass Transportation on Administration in Washington, D.C.: "Congratulations for the excellent marketing program . . . (It is) easily one of the best in the country. It is comprehensive- and imaginitive.” University students got involved in the project in November 1975 when art instructor John Lawler heard of the city's decision to buy the then private transit system with federal assistance. Lawler saw this as a contemporary design problem for his advanced advertising design class. He mentioned the idea to his students who were intrigued by it. One student, a senior in commercial art. said. "I personally drew an interest in the project because I had been following new graphics on planes for a long time. It would present a unique problem to solve ... a different kind of challenge." Lawler drew up a proposal to the City Council in which the students promised "to produce a strong, progressive visual image for the new public transit system" at no charge (except for materials) to the city. Flans included: design of the graphics in and on the buses and bus shelters, a pathfinder sign system, route maps, bus schedules, drivers' uniforms and advertising.Kan Claire Is Expecting!

According to Lawler, they were systematic in their work and after coming up with the final design and color scheme, they spent hours working on a presentation and justified everything they did in order to answer any possible doubts about the project. The entire system is based on color and graphics. Each bus has seven colors on it; no two of the buses look the same. The buses carry no ads on the sides. "We didn’t design a product and then design the advertising. We designed a product as a marketing effort. Everytime it goes by it sells itself.” Lawler contends. One student agrees, saying, "We wanted the design to work by itself without any distractions." A carefully planned ad campaign informing citizens of the new system preceded the buses’ arrival. When they arrived on May 1, 1975, ribboncutting ceremonies, displays and a public dance were among the events held to welcome the new system to the city. Ridership has increased with the new system, new programs have been started, and more services are expected for the future. Although most of the original 11 design students have been graduated. new students enroll in the course each semester to take up where others have left off—creating ads and doing whatever design work there is to be done for ETC. Lawler estimates a 60 per cent turnover of students in the class each year. He says that although students in the class are not required to work on the ETC project, he’d like his class to continue with it as long as they're interested and while the city needs the students’ work. 17LOBBY SHOPPE It had been one of those days. Your ID vanished. Your typewriter had gone bananas and you had a paper due the next day. You put a quarter in the vending machine but all you got was a groan and a click. You desperately needed a newspaper to study for that current events quiz and it was too late to go to the library. And you were in the mood for an engrossing game of chess. The Lobby Shoppe, a jack-of-all trades operation, handled these and other problems students and faculty had. Questions were answered over the counter and over the telephone (for those either far away or too shy to ask in person). The Lobby Shoppe rented typewriters; distributed schedules, directories and informational brochures; sold newspapers, Xerox, ditto and offset copies, stamps and postcards; checked out ping pong paddles and chess sets nnd provided a telephone directory service. The central Lost and Found for the campus was operated from the Lobby Shoppe. Wayward IDs, text or library books, dorm keys or other valuable items were turned in here and held for at least one week. Posters were stamped, dated and initialed here, and cards for the "Wanted." "For Sale." and "Housing" boards were approved. Reservations for the tunnel and meeting rooms for extracurricular activities were handled by the calendar secretory in one of the Lobby Shoppe’s back offices. Larry Appleyard, assistant director of University Operations, said that when the Davies Center addition is completed, there would be a new Lobby Shoppe offering more services to students and faculty, and even to the person who is just having "one of those days." ISHOUSING One of the more important things you needed as a college student was a place to live, somewhere to hang your hat at night, or maybe even a place to call “home.” The function of the Housing office, 112 Towers, was to help you find appropriate housing on- or off campus. Housing provided ten on-campus and one off campus residence halls for freshmen and sophomores who were required to live on campus when accommodations were available, and for upper classmen who wished to live in the dorms. Conveniences such as telephones, linen, mail service, laundry facilities, vending machines, TV lounges and study lounges were provided for the residence hall dweller. According to residence hall information distributed by Housing, “extensive social, cultural, educational, and recreational programs planned and organized by residents and residence hall staff supplement classroom instruction in the overall education of university students." Dorm living was meant to be a growing experience. An off campus housing list was kept current by the Housing office. Off campus students were allowed to live in the housing of their choice, but were urged to seek University-approved housing. The Housing office. located in 127 Towers, was directed by Dr. Douglas Hallatt and Robert Brisiel, associate director. FINANCIAL AIDS College student have the reputation of being rather poor, and you may have found that you were no exception. The money you made during the summer just didn't go as far as you hoped it would and you didn't dare ask your parents for any more money. That’s when the services provided by the Financial Aids office may been of help. According to Bob Misenko, financial aids counselor, it’s a service that students should use any time they find the need to. Financial Aids offered financial counseling, provided the job board where students could apply for jobs posted, made scholarship information available and advised students about dependent and independent financial status. The office carried information on financial aids programs for minorities and provided summer joh tips. A short term loan program was offered students who needed to borrow money to be repaid in a short amount of time at no interest charge. There were also emergency grant funds available for students who may not have had enough money to handle a valid emergency. The office operated with other social organizations such as welfare, worked in conjunction with the summer orientation program, and was available to sponsor programs for organizations who wanted financial aids information. “The whole realm of financial aids is a service," says Misenko, “but many students are not aware of all the services we provide for them.” Health Service toCAREER PLANNING AND PLACEMENT You had been in school for awhile and were working toward a degree in your field of interest. There were times, though, when you wondered just what kind of job. if any at all. your degree would get you. One of the services provided by Career Planning and Placement, Schofield 230, was to inform students of the marketability of their skills in the world of work. Career Planning and Placement provided career planning for freshmen through seniors and alumni and helped students select the "right” careers for them. As part of the placement service, a credentials service for alumni holds student records. It is available for one's entire work life. A vacancy service, informing students and alumni of possible job openings, and an interview service, through which people who have jobs to offer come to the students, were also part of the placement service. Aca FOOD SERVICE You were a relatively normal student—that is, you liked to eat. The Food Service, operated by Professional Food Management, took on the job of supplying many of you with food here. Food was provided for cash customers as well as students who lived in the residence halls, and off campus students who ate in the cafeterias. The contract meal service was for students who live in the dorms and for off campus students who elected to eat on campus. There was just one meal plan, the 21-meal plan, and according to Lanny Okonek, food service director, this was the most economic plan for the student. If a student ate 60 to 65 percent of the meals, Okonek said, he was getting his money’s worth. Complete cash sale areas such bb the Blugold Room, the Pub and the Little Niagra were also managed by Food Service. Some of these snack areas located in Davies will be going through an updating process with the new addition to Davies Center. Men who have training in fast food and delicatessen methods of food preparation had been hired to begin this updating. Okonek says. All services provided by the Food Service were under contract with the University. Students had a voice in what the contract demanded of the Food Service, he said. The student food service committee worked with the food service and another student committee reviewed the menu weekly. And of course, there was the Beef Board for those who wished to remain anonymous in their comments.demic Career Advising. HEALTH SERVICE You didn't feel well. Besides having a cough, you felt nauseous, light-headed and run down. It was time to find out just what was bugging you. According to Dr. William Mautz. one of the two Health Service physicians, it was probably just that—a bug. But it was part of the Health Service’s function to take care of students who came in with health problems they wanted remedied. The Health Service has given physical exams and since March 1975, has prescribed birth control methods to women requesting it. It also offers pregnancy and veneral disease testing. The Health Service staff consulted with other professionals on certain cases, worked with the Counseling Center and had a psychiatrist on call. Flu shots and skin tests were available to all students and faculty. Allergy shots were also given. Although a nurse was available in the Murray Hail office on nights and weekends. Mautz said students seemed to prefer to go to a hospital emergency room, which cost money. ACADEMIC CAREER ADVISING You re tn college but perhaps didn't know what you wanted to major in. You had no major and no adviser. Or. maybe you read about a course in the catalog. It sounded great, but you wanted to know more about the course. Academic and Career Advising handled these and other academic problems and questions. The office staff worked with students who had no major and acted as advisers to these "undecideds.” They helped students discover their interests. 120 OFFICE OF ACADEMIC I CAREER ADVISING AMSn TO out STUttNTS WALK INI They work with handicapped students. They also organize and run the summer orientation program for freshmen and transfer students as well as hold departmental dialogs throughout the school year. Sarah Harder, adviser to older students, is responsible to UWEC students over age 23. 22Burke promotes political activism to gain equality, power £or women Women’s role in politics was the focus of Yvonne Brathwaite Burke's speech at UWEC in March. Vice-chairperson of the 1972 Democratic Convention and the first black woman elected to Congress from California, she said that women must take a more active role in the policymaking process. She also talked about issues involving women on the political scene. Burke said her hope for 1976 was that women would not be the last to be called upon in high strategy positions. Women are not well-represented in positions involving the formulation of legislation now. and they need to gain more consultant and technician positions, not just political office positions, she said. Total representation can only be achieved by huving more women active in politics, she said. There are only 19 women in Congress and no woman Senators. "If you don’t have total input.” she said, “it is not representative, and we cannot react to a crisis." The best opportunity for women to get involved in politics is at the local level. Burke said. Women are becoming more involved lately in local boards of education, city councils and lawmaking bodies. It is necessary, however, for women to be involved at all levels of government. One current problem is in the area of appointments for women. The Supreme Court is an example of this discrimination. Burke said. There is yet to be a woman on the Supreme Court. 'This is the first time I have heard of anyone talking about age when appointing a judge." she said. “A woman can be too old. but nobody worries about an old man when it comes to a Supreme Court judge." Another issue is employment discrimination. "One-third of employment discrimination involves women." she said. "And. though many problems are resolved, it is only because people give up. not because of action taken.” "A large number of complaints are from university women. Instructors are women, but there aren’t too many women who move higher up (administration!. And if they do move higher up. they don't get paid as much as men do for the same job." Burke said women are not common in the hierarchy of large corporations. "Women are only on the board of directors of a large corporation if there is a crisis or if the department is on the way out." Women are in the forefront in the peace movement, Burke said. A reason we need women in politics is shown by the fact that 51 percent of women polled in 1971 backed the McGovern-Hatfield Amendment, which would have called for a withdrawal of troops from Viet Nam, she said. In the question answer session after her speech. Burke said that attitudes about women’s roles are changing. In the 1960s. the idea in America was that women stayed at home. She said part of the changing attitude is. among other things, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) issue. Burke said she has given up on any chance of the ERA passing this year because of the recession, job competition, and the organized movement against the ERA. "People are concerned about uni-sexual bathrooms and these things." Burke said, "but these are not true." She added that moat objections to the ERA are unfounded. Burke said that in a recent poll, 55 percent of the people said they would vote for a woman president. "Women can be elected now because people want to relieve our social ills." Election reform and means of selection reform are two thing that are necessary for women to gain in power. Burke said. 23Question:howmanypeoplecanyou£it The enrollment this year reached almost 10,000 students—a record for the school and quite a contrast to past years of 7,000 and 8,000 enrollments. Was it noticed by the students? Were there longer lines in the Blugold room, fewer tables available in the library, more people in classes? Were parking spaces more scarce? '7 haven't noticed that anything is really much different this year than last," one Blugold patron said. "Sure the lines are kind of long but they were this way last year too. ” "We sure could use another parking lot." "A week before exams, you just can't get a place in here (library) if you don't come before 6.00." "I'm not paying this ticket. I had to park in this faculty spot to get to class on time." "Considering more students probably use the library than any other building on campus, you'd think they could find more room." According to James Bollinger, assistant chancellor for administrative services, UWEC is equipped to handle between 10,000 and 10,500 students provided they’re divided into the right areas. The only place that was really pressed for space this year was the library, he said, and in the next few years, more space will be opened up. Space was also tight for the recreation and athletic programs. Chancellor Leonard Haas said. He didn't believe, however, that crowded conditions changed students' desire to attend UWEC. He said he thought students must be satisfied here because they have recommended the school to others. Word of mouth has been the best recruiter. Parking a problem But students have complained this year about particular inconveniences due to the high enrollment. One complaint is that it is difficult, and sometimes impossible to find adequate parking space on or near campus. Wallace O’Neill, director of Safety and Security said car pools should be used to relieve the problem. Last year, cars were parked on streets in the vicinity of campus up to three blocks away, he said, but this year they are being parked five or six blocks away from campus. "We know these are student and faculty cars because they have stickers on them; they just couldn't find spots in the lot.” O’Neill said. This year, a special car pool rate was advertised by Safety and Security. In order to alleviate the parking congestion, the office en- 24inonecampusbe£oreitgetscrowded couratted car pools and gave special rates to persons who agreed to double up. They were allowed to use either student or faculty parking stalls. Thirty-five car pools were registered and occupants totaled 95 people. O’Neill said. Classes okay The library, another area of concern, is much more a problem than crowded classrooms. There’s approximately 500 more students here this year than last, according to Registrar James Dean. By urging departments to stay strictly within the section capacities, overcrowded classes were not a problem. Enrollment in night classes increased which allowed for more efficient use of facilities. Davies being added to While the Davies Center—es- pecially the Blugold room—was used to capacity this year, an addition under construction will be completed by December 1976. It will increase seating capacity in the Blugold alone by about 30 percent. Haas said. Breathing room expected While the enrollment reached 9,920 students this year, the target plan calls for a gradual decrease in enrollment to approximately 9,400 students by 1980. Although the high enrollment has not had serious effects on the campus this year, continued high levels could be detrimental, Bollinger said. According to Haas, next year’s enrollment will be only about 20 students less than this year, but it will have begun the decline. Students will gradually regain breathing space in the halls and rooms on campus.Living, learning, UWEC students About: Student$ who went to Copenhagen this year may have teen this itatue of two Vikings in front of the Radhut (the "city hall") there Below: One of the beautiful nghtt in Copenhagen, thu is a church which standi in front of the Amahrnhorg 1‘alace Many students have gone beyond the daily trek from dorms and apartments to classes during their years at UWEC. Besides the regular college curriculum, there have been many programs which give students the chance to explore different countries and cultures in person, not just through books. The foreign study programs available have offered a variety of plans. Some run a whole year, while others run 14 days. Some offer classroom experience in a foreign country, while others try to emphasize the characteristics of a certain country through extensive touring. However, no matter how varied the programs, the purpose seems to be basically the same: to offer students an opportunity to learn about and experience a country and culture other than their own. Many of the programs have been first publicized through the Division of International Studies (D.I.S.) at UWEC. The department, besides giv- ing students basic information on programs, has also acted in an advisory capacity to any student interested in traveling anywhere without a school-organized tour. The department has also issued International Student I.D. Cards which allow students to obtain certain discounts while traveling. Three programs which have been initially coordinated through the D.I.S. are Summer Session in (Monterrey) Mexico, Study Abroad Copenhagen, and Contemporary Soviet Union Soviet Tour. The session in Monterrey, Mexico will run this summer and students will be enrolled at the Instituto Technologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Monterrey Institute of Technology and High Studies) also called the Tec. Students will earn six to seven credits by taking courses in Spanish, business, economics, botany, archaeology, sociology or other general studies classes. Most of the courses will be taught in English. Between 20 and 30 UWEC students traditionally attend the sessions. Dr. Antonio Lazcano, associate professor of foreign language, is director of the program. He said that although anyone can attend, those majoring or minoring in Spanish and who are planning to take Spanish classes there are usually encouraged to go only after their intermediate year of Spanish. The cost of the program has run about $700. Students have had to find their own transportation to Monterrey. According to Lazcano, groups of students have been driving down together instead of flying or taking a bus. The purpose of the program is to give students the opportunity to study Latin American culture and to live in a Mexican atmosphere 24-hours a day. Paula Stuettgen, a Latin American Studies major, spent a summer session in Monterrey. Sheenjoying life through travel leave campus tor education said one of her most memorable ex periences there was a trip she took to southern Mexico during a break in the session. There she got a chance to see small village life and climb a volcano that had last erupted about 24 years ago. Another program that has been initiated through D.I.S. is the Copenhagen, Denmark trip. This program is a year-long one and up to 30 credits can be earned. Departure for Copenhagen has been in early September and the Spring semester ends in May. This year’s program was its third year here and 50 UWEC students participated in it with students from four other UW schools. While there, students could take any of a variety of general studies courses (taught in English). Classes were held four days a week which allowed an extra free day for short trips. The cost of the program has been approximately $2500. This includes travel, tuition, room, local excursions and a trip to Russia and Norway. Students stay in two-person student apartments in Copehagen. The program was created to provide an opportunity for students to study and engage in research at a European center. This year the UWEC director in Copenhagen was Wilmer Pautz, professor of foreign language. Scott Fosum, was in Copenhagen last year. One of the things that impressed Fosum about the Danish was their naturalness. He said that the people were very open and he always felt welcome wherever he went. The third program that has been offered through D.I.S. is the Soviet Union Seminar. This is a 14-day trip which ran from March 13 to March 26 this year, its eighth year as a UWEC trip. There were about 20 students and three community members on this year’s tour, which included the cities of Leningrad, Moscow and Vilnuis in Lituania. UWEC participated with several other univer-sitites in the UW system and about 200 people in all flew on a chartered plane to Leningrad. Jack Lauber, associate professor of history, was coordinator of this year’s trip. The cost of the tour was $700 and this included round trip air transportation from Chicago to the Soviet Union, transportation within the Soviet Union, room, board and sightseeing. Students earned three credits and prior to the trip attended a three hour class once a week to give them a crash course in the historical, political, social and cultural structures of the Soviet Union. Following their return, students were required to do a project. An added extra of thiR year’s seminar was a chance for the students to learn the Russian language before leaving. Ellen Bournique was one member of this year's trip. She was interested in the trip because as a political science major, the tour would offer her a good opportunity to see totally different political system and a diversified culture, a mixture of European and Asian influences. There have also been three interim programs to Europe sponsored by the Foreign Language Department. They are to France. Spain and Germany. Students who have participated in these programs have earned three credits. The trip to France, although it has been offered each year, has never filled the 15-person quota needed for the trip so it has not been carried through. Edith O’Connor, instructor of foreign languages, and director of the trip said the reason people haven’t signed up is the cost—$1,235. The tour to Spain in its third year, is the least expensive of the three—$999. Roma Hoff, professor of foreign language and coordinator of the trip said between 20 and 30 people usually participate. The purpose of the trip is to offer UWEC HudenU BiU Parkt (left) and David Zimmer poted with two friendt on the ttatue of Hans Chrwtian Andenen near the Rodhui in Copenhagen Uut year (Bill hirhe took the photagraphM on paget 26,27 and 28.) people an educational experience, not just a vacation, said Hoff, who knows several people in Spain who help give the group a close-up of Spanish life. The tour includes Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba. Seville, Malaga, Valencia and Barcelona. Those desiring to stay longer in Europe may stay up to 45 days and fly back on the airline ticket for no extra cost. Ann Meyer, a Spanish business administration major, has signed up for this year’s trip. She is going because she wanted to study in Spain for a semester or a year but has never been able to because of her heavy school work load. She said she thinks this trip will offer her the easiest way to do something she has always wanted to do.The European trip to Germany, coordinated by Adam Bora, assistant professor of German and counselor, is in its third year. The trip is open to seven people; if more wish to sign up, a class of 15 to 20 may go. Cost of the trip is $1,450. It will run from May 21 to June 11 this year. Bore said most participants have been from the community. The tour, however, is geared toward those students who want a European experience but don’t have a foreign language background. The trip includes visits to Stuttgart, the Black Forest, Oberammergau, Salzburg. Vienna and Munich. One program within the United States is the exchange program with Grambling College in Grambling. LA. The program has been operating since 1970 and usually about three to five students are exchanged between the schools each semester. However, according to John Stoelting, director of the program here, interest has been fading and applicants are difficult to find. At the time the program was started, there was a high interest in race relations, but that has died down. People are rather apathetic toward minority groups now, he said. OlM of Copenhagen I "old world” flavor —a guard at the Amallrnborg f xlace Http hi» teriou uatch even in front of a photographer' Uni The student pays regular UWEC tuition for the semester at Grambling. Transportation costs are the only extra expense. Students are required to live and eat on campus there. Credits and grades are accepted as though they were earned at UWEC. Until this past semester, UWEC was the only school in the system participating in the exchange, but UW-Whitewater sent two students down in 1976. The purpose of the program is to give students the opportunity to live in a different culture and to have to make adjustments to that culture. Connie Hutchison attended Grambling. a predominantly black school, during the fall semester this year. "The opportunity was there ... it gave me a chance to know another part of the country, another culture." she said. It was hard to adjust to being a minority, she said, but added that she quickly learned that people are people and there is no reason for racial prejudices. 28Beyond the bachelor degree How much more time must a graduate student spend studying over the average undergraduate? “Ugh! One hundred percent more!’’ one 22-year-old graduate student moaned. Despite that, more people enroll every semester in UWEC’s School of Graduate Studies. According to Dr. R. Dale Dick, dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Eau Claire first offered a graduate program in 1960. The only degree offered at that time was the Master of Science in Teaching. Today the school offers five degrees in 14 areas of concentration. Twenty-four academic departments offer graduate courses. Currently, the school offers the following degrees: Master of Science in Teaching (MST) with programs in elementary education and reading, junior high education, business education, music, and secondary education with specialization in history and social science. English, speech, chemistry, biology and mathematics; Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), for student with liberal arts degrees who wish to become qualified to teach in public secondary schools, with specializations in business, music, history, English, speech, chemistry, biology and mathematics; Master of Science in Education (MSE) with specializations in communicative disorders, school psychology and special education; the Master of Arts (MA) with specializations in English and history; and the Master of Science (MS) with specializations in biology, chemistry, instruction and administration in Medical Techology. and Communicative Disorders. In addition. Dick said the school was accredited this year to offer a program for the Specialist in Education in Business Education degree. He noted that the University is also planning to offer degrees in Specialist in School Psychology and Specialist in Special Education, and MS programs in Nursing and in Public Health in the future. The most popular degree programs are specialized in elementary education, communicative disorders, special education and business education. About 600 graduate students enroll each semester, but only about one-third of them are full-time students. During the fall 1975 semester, only 132 of 609 students were full-time students. By contrast. 8,256 of the 8,736 under graduates were full-time students. During that same semester, which was a typical one, 413 students were women, and 196 were men. Sixty-five percent of all graduate students this year were married; only 7.6 percent of the undergraduates were married. This partially explains why only four graduate students lived in the residence halls. Most of the graduate students here were Wisconsin residents. Dick said most of the graduate degree programs can be completed in one or two years. The average semester credit load is 12 hours. But graduate students are expected to maintain a 3.0 gradepoint average, and many of the students are required to take an oral examination and to write a thesis. Maybe that explains why a graduate student has to study “100 percent’ more than the undergraduate does. A• a "fringe benefit" of being a UWEC graduate itudmt. a tpecial lounge ueu et aude on the library ' fourth floor for graduate itudent only The typical student may not share Joe College’s hysteria, but he can certainly empathize with the problem. It is clearly evident that UWEC suffers from an acute case of insufficient student space. In fact, Eau Claire presently has the least square footage of space per student of all campuses in the system. Fortunately, a remedy is at hand. Relief comes in the shape of the new W. R. Davies University Center addition, set to be completed by December. If all goes according to schedule, it should be operational by the 1977 spring semester. According to James Bollinger, assistant chancellor for administrative services, the addition will alleviate the greatest space problems by creating areas for student relaxation and group meetings. The lower level will contain a After tearing down the old Schofield Annex latt fall, worken began construction of the new addition to the student union They worked through the winter 31attractions carpeted extension of the Blugold room, separated from the present one by new, expanded servery. The food bar now operating in the Blugold will be closed, except on rare occasions. Johannes Dahle, director of university centers, said the new servery has a "Main Street” concept. In other words, it will give the impression of several little shops. Among these are an ice cream parlor, a delicatessen, a pizza place, a fast foods section and two beverage islands. The lower floor will also contain a new lobby area and information center, two conference rooms, and a publicity workshop for committee use. The central corridor will be a much wider continuation of the one presently extending east from the bookstore. The upper level will be composed mainly of meeting rooms and lounge areas, each with its own distinctive design. Dahle stressed the attempt to achieve a pleasing, relaxing atmosphere throughout the addition. This is to be accomplished through varying decor, optimum use of window space, and outside landscaping. One large multi-purpose room on the second floor will be able to accommodate 800 people in an auditorium arrangement, or 600 for dinner seating. An adjoining stage area will make it suitable for dinner theater events, mini-concerts or forums as well as meetings. If necessary, the room can be partitioned into four separate meeting areas, each approximately the size of the President's Room. The addition is an extension of the Davies Center to the east, covering the area previously occupied by the Schofield Annex and the old heating plant. This location was deemed advantageous because it will bring the Center closer to the other buildings. The location will also result in better circulation of student traffic. Two new entrances, one at the east end and one in the northeast section of the addition, will relieve the congestion now apparent at the north doors facing Schofield. Total coat of the addition, which is being constructed by Larson. Hestekin, Smith Ltd., an Eau Claire based firm, is $1.6 million. To absorb some of this coat, student segregated fees will be increased $6 per semester beginning next fall. Despite the increase of 22,000 usable square feet in the two-story addition, Bollinger estimated that as many as three-fourths of the schools in the university will still have more square feet per student than Eau Claire. He hastened to point out, however, that this is a reflection of UWEC’s full enrollment rather than inadequate facilities. He said the addition will accommodate all long range needs for student space, and nothing further is planned in the way of expansion. mm, fSlt'. -ii+ Mill,9 1-6More than just a church... The first of its kind in Wisconsin and one of a few in the entire nation, the new Ecumenical Religious Center (ERC) opened its doors to people of all faiths last fall. Not a church, but a meeting place, the ERC is used for much more than Sunday's worship. It is designed to combine worship with lectures, discussions, religious studies and musical programs throughout the week. The culmination of an eight-year dream of three men. the ERC was dedicated this past September with an 11-day celebration—“New Beginnings." It started with a dinner and student musical, “For Heaven's Sake" and featured daily programs of discussions, readings, mime and dance. The public dedication service on Sept. 21 involved hundreds of University and community people of many different faiths. Reverends Robert McKillip, Kurt Reichardt and John Kruse of the Cooperative Campus Ministry staff founded the idea in 1967. Since then, they acquired a piece of property on lower campus and in 1970, formed the non-profit Ecumenical Religious Center. Inc. Composed of the Roman Catholic Dioceses of La Crosse, the National Lutheran Campus Ministry and the United Ministry in Higher Education (UMHE), the corporation owns both the $350,000 building and land. Local faiths representing the UMHE are: American Baptist. United Church of Christ, Protestant Episcopal. United Methodist and United Presbyterian Churches. The ERC includes the remodeled former offices of the Newman Community Center and the Centrum, the main meeting place, which holds about 285 people. Part of Paul Grandlund's collection on ditplay during the September dedication week, this bronze sculpture stood at the entrance to the ERC 37The contemporary, multipurpose Centrum was designed by Hammel Green and Abrahamson Architects and Engineers of the Twin Cities. Instead of pews, the building features padded wood-frame chairs which unlock and can be rearranged as needed. A balcony over the angular centrum is used for additional seating. George Hagale, associate art professor here, designed and built the Centrum's modular altar, composed of four laminated birch blocks which can be made into a dozen different arrangements. In chooeing the right altar for the Centrum. Reichardt said, "I wanted an altar that changed shapes for variety and excitement, rather than one piece of furniture that always looked the same." Hagale also designed and made the Centrum's crucifix as well as the altar, stools and tabernacle in the Meditation Chapel. Part of the opening events at the ERC included display of a bronze sculpture collection by Paul Grandlund, valued at $61,000 and a $2,000 print collection of Corita Kent. Student acton performed the student written!directed musical, "For Heaven's Sake," several times during the dedication The Centrum, a multipurpose meeting place, has a modular altar and wooden chain which unlock and can he arranged in various ways. 1 jt1' Sure, everybody wants to see their picture in their yearbook.

Breaking away from rigidity and giving the student a chance to broaden his or her horizons. That is basically the idea behind the General Studies program. Before the program was instituted at UWEC in 1970, a General Education program had been in operation for many years. This set up required students to take specific classes to round out their college education. For example, students were required to take one year of history, one year of a lab science and so on. In 1968, a study committee was formed to examine the General Education program and other more liberal programs across the country. The committee found that programs in many other schools offered more choices of classes, few required courses and there was a general grouping of classes that did not relate to a particular major or minor program. In the fall of 1968, the study committee submitted the four-area plan that is currently in use. It was approved in December 1970. Where does the program stand now? Students have complained that they are required to take too many extraneous courses. Some teachers of Genral Studies courses dislike the lack of motivation some students display in classes which they have taken merely to fulfill the requirement. According to Dr. Frederick Haug, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences and a proponent of the initial change, it is basically a good program. In fact, other schools in the system are imitating certain aspects of it, he said.Phys 305 Phys 308 Phys 315 Phys 325 Anth 161 Anth 370 Art 105 Bsad 135 CS 210 CS 310 Econ 100 Econ 111 Econ 112 Econ 230 Econ 356 Econ 360 Econ 368 F ed 120 F ed 305 Geog 255 Geog 351 Geog 365 Geog 371 Geog 372 Geog 375 Hist 105 Hist 106 Hist 150 Hist 204 Hist 210 Hist 240 Hist 324 Hist 326 Hist 344 Hist 356 Hist 382 Hist 391 Hist 393 F lg 380 F lg 382 Of ad 365 Phil 220 Phil 305 Phil 325 Phil 345 Phil 370 Phil 405 Pols 102 Pols 110 Pols 180 Pols 185 Pols 190 Pols 193 Pols 260 Pols 270 Pols 350 Pols 390 Psyc 100 Psyc 250 P E 187 Reis 311 Reis 312 Reis 314 Reis 315 Reis 316 Reis 352 Soc 142 Soc 318 Spch 342 Art 111 Art 112 Art 132 Art 210 Art 211 Art 213 Art 215 Art 307 Art 305 However, there are downfalls in the program, too. He cited the number of courses and said that now, there are too many. ‘Too much of a choice is no choice at all." The second problem of the program is political logrolling. Haug said. Each course must be approved by a faculty committee. The faculty members battle for approval of courses in their areas of interest and Haug said the objectivity of the choice is gone. Looking at the program, there is a curious mixture of classes, he said. But with its problems, General Studies is an innovative program. Haug believes it provides students with a more liberal educational experience. "It allows the student to get out of his or her specific discipline to experiment in other areas," he said. "And it gives the student a broad education. The vocational schools can gi% e as good of training in a certain discipline as any university but a program such as General Studies separates vocational school training from a university education." 43Art M7 Art 319 Art 321 Art 322 Art 323 Engl 142 Engl 190 Engl 231 Engl 232 Engl 235 Engl 248 Engl 275 Engl 276 Engl 277 Engl 290 Engl 291 Engl 341 Engl 342 Engl 349 Engl 390 Engl 39?

Others feel there is too much choice. But in a faculty poll last year, they rejected an idea to revamp the current program. According to Haug, the General Studies courses are, in fact, general. Unlike major or minor courses, the teacher has no specific hold on the student while a teacher in a student’s major field often expects much more of the student. The future of the General Studies program is up in the air. Haug predicts that in the future, there will probably be a smaller number of courses to choose from and some courses will be able to be counted toward a student’s major or minor. "The General Studies concept is a good one," Haug said. "For the program to work and work well, the students’ wants and the teachers’ ability to fulfill those wants must meet.” uIn our own way, ‘happy birthday’ to the USA What if someone gave a birthday party and nobody came? That hasn’t been the case at UWEC. We joined the ranks of others who began celebrating the nation’s 200th birthday this year. Everything from bicentennial music to bicentennial speakers dotted this year’s calendar. The celebration for the country’s birthday was originally supposed to be organized by the University Bicentennial Committee. However, the committee received no funds and was forced to disband. But even without one organized group, celebration was planned and carried out by various academic departments, among University organizations, and in conjunction with the city bicentennial committee. A University city effort brought ‘‘Up With People" to town in the fall of 1975. The presentation of “A Dandy Yankee Doodle Do" was also organized by the city bicentennial conmittee. The American Issues Forum, a national program designed to engage the participation of all Americans, was responsible for bringing speakers to campus regularly during the year. In February, the city of Eau Claire sponsored a town meeting to get people involved in the discussion of important, controversial issues of the city and the nation. During the annual 10-day celebration of Sawdust City Days this year, the University and the city have planned to work together on bicentennial programs. In May, the re-dedication of Putnam Park was also organized with the bicentennial theme. The festivity included a picnic and an outdoor concert. The State Historical Society made plans to set up a history mobile in August for the benefit of all those with an interest in American history. The University Forum Scries and Artists Series planned many of their activities around a bicentennial theme. The Social Commission worked with the Forum and Artises Series in presenting such things as the movie “The Immigrants," and also set up displays such as the Native American exhibit during Native American Week. The Cultural Commission sponsored special video-tapes, lectures and visual arts to celebrate the bicentennial. All year, films were shown as part of the "American" series. Last fall lectures were held with people such as Jeremy Rifkin. In May. an art exhibit called "American Landscapes." was shown. Next fall, the Cultural Commission will be sponsoring a series on America’s religious heritage. Besides the bicentennial events that were planned by various organizations in the city and in the University, many of the University departments made plans to celebrate the nation’s birthday in their own way. The Music department sponsored a concert that included the University Concert Choir, the Blugold Singers. Jazz Ensemble I. a Dixieland Band and several other musical groups. The entire concert was based on the bicentennial and included music encompassing the era of spirituals through contemporary songs. The Concert Choir and Jazz Ensemble I performed at the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) in Washington. DC,—a The Urvrkt took advantage of the (ISA'» birth-das by utng a bicentennial I hr me in their annual u inter carnival—"WHOOPtE." convention with a nationalistic theme. Most of the music that was played or sung during the convention was arranged by American composer . The Speech department sponsored a district bicentennial speech contest that was held in Eau Claire. Area schools competed in such categories as debate, extemporaneous and persuasive speech. The department organized the contest together with the city bicentennial committee. I st summer the History department sponsored talks on the American Revolution; this summer, it may offer a graduate course on the American Revolution. During English Week, the English department had several guests speak on the bicentennial in relation to American literature. It's apparent that UWEC has been involved in many of bicentennial programs at the University, city, state and national levels. According to Johannes Dahle, University Center Director. "There is no official, mandated way to celebrate the bicentennial. Eau Claire has done it its own way." 46What do UWEC people really think about all the flag-waving that '$ been going on in celebration of our 200th birthday I Well, there seems to be an equal feeling among people as to whether or not the celebration of the bicentennial has significant meaning. Johannes Dahle. director of the University Center, compares the celebration of the bicentennial to the celebration of family birthdays. "Some families are more emotional about celebrating things like birthdays." Dahle said. "The United States is like a family. Some are really excited about it and are getting out and traveling, reading books and uatching shows about the bicentennial. Still others aren't that emotional about it." In some ways, Dahle said, the bicentennial has been too commercialized. "Some people like bicentennial ceramic ashtrays."Dahle said. "That doesn't turn me on. But then you think about it and you realize those cheap knickacks might be in museums 100 years from now." Thomas Miller, history professor said the celebration of the bicentennial should represent freedom. This means people can celebrate any way they want to. "I'd rather be told I can have a bicentennial toilet seat than to be told I can't have a bicentennial toilet seat." Miller said, "even though I personally don't want one." Another faculty member. Dr. Johng Ki Lim, biology professor, said that he’s learned many new things about the United States that he never knew before. Lim said he believes the bicentennial has been commercialized. but that he wasn’t sure if there was any other way we could celebrate it in America. History Professor, Ronald Mickel, also had mixed feelings about how America was celebrating its 200th birthday. "It'» delightful when people pay attention to history, but we also like it to be history, not myth," Mickel said. "I don't like to see history glamorized or commercialized though." Dominic Spera, music professor, said the celebration of the bicentennial does stir feelings of patriotism. "Things have been commercialized. but at the same time people are looking back and getting a new view of our forefathers." Spera said. The Freedom Shrine— UWEC i daily reminder of our heritage—contains copier of important document• in American history The symbolic duplay is in the first floor hallway of the old library building. Many students have similar attitudes about the celebration of the bicentennial. "If people really feel patriotism toward their country, they won’t need to feel it just when the nation celebrates »' • 200th birthday, ” Joanne Friedrich, journal-ism political science major, said. "In a way, people have become resentful of the bicentennial because it has been too commercialized. Maybe if we had toned it down it would have meant more. " Sandy Johnson, medical technology major, said the bicentennial has been “oversold," “you get these ads in the mail trying to get you to buy all these bicentennial coins, necklaces, etc.," Johnson said. "It's been far too commercialized. ” Another student, Michael Fordney, business administration major, has still another view on the bicentennial. "I feel that the bicentennial has definitely brought patriotism back to the United States." "I feel that people have become more aware of our history, and are trying to apply our ancestors' success and mistakes to our present day problems." Sandy Hibbard, English major, said she believes many people have celebrated due to an interest in a good time or just out of a feeling of obligation. However. Hibbard said she does believe that events such as the music department's bicentennial concert are a good way to educate people about the bicentennial. "It helps to educate the public not only musically, but in the fact 46that America has a number of great composers and great music that is exciting and entertaining. ” Another student who felt the bicentennial celebration were not stirring patriotism was Daniel Gannon. Spanish major. "There has been a kind of apathy since the 1960s and the Viet Nam war," Gannon said. "It a just typical of American ingenuity to celebrate the bicentennial. Were the hind of people who like ceremony and pageantry—we love to celebrate anything." Gannon said the thing he most admires about America and the bicentennial is its youth and their spirit. "Younger people have a great sense of nationalism, ” Gannon said. "The youth in America see a world of people, not a world of countries." The consensus among many peo- ple is that the bicentennial should be a kind of "individual" celebration. This means everyone should have the freedom to celebrate or not to celebrate, whichever they see fit. "If we were in the Soviet Union there would be an official plan we would have to follow to celebrate the bicentennial," Dahle said. "Here in the United States everyone is free to do it their own way. ” I'Above: Freshman Rita Oeei-akoto came to Wisconsin from Ghana on the recommendation of a friend Right and opposite page: Godwin Emetaron came to UWSC from Nigeria three year ago. Although he likes the school, he prefer the warm weather of hie home climate to the snowy, cold Eau Claire winter Students This year at UWEC, the number of international students totaled 86. according to Barbara Holland, adviser to the international group. There were 20 students from Nigeria. 17 from Hong Kong, 7 from Kenya, 6 from Ghana. 2 from Ethiopia and 1 student each from Morocco and Rhodesia. In addition there was also one student each from Malaysia, Thailand, the Republic of China and Sri Lanka. There were 3 students each from Japan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, 2 each from India and Iran and 1 each from Israel and Afghanistan. From Europe there were 2 students from Sweden, and 1 each from France and Greece. 48from other countries From Latin and South America there was a student from Jamaica, Colombia, Guyana, Mexico and 4 from Peru. There was also 1 student from Canada. The students had a wide variety of reasons for coming to UWEC for college. While here, many of them have discovered certain likes and dislikes for our part of the country. Rita Osei-akoto, a freshman from Ghana, came to Eau Claire because she knew someone here already and it sounded "pretty good” to her. Although her favorite food was rice from her own country, she developed a liking for spaghetti from the United States. She doesn't eat much bread, she said, because it's "too fattening”. Rita enjoys dorm life and is not anxious to move off campus. Oddeth Samuels, another freshman, from Jamaica decided to come to Eau Claire on a recommendation from her brother and sister-in-law who attend UW-Stout. Oddeth said it was hard to say what she liked and disliked about Eau Claire because she had never been any where else to compare. She had no favorite food here but rice and peas were favorites from her own country. Oddeth also lived on campus and enjoyed reading and listening to music in her spare time. A junior from Nigeria, Godwin Emetaron said he came to Eau Claire for the education, but that he bIbo had a brother going to Madison, who told him about Eau Claire. Godwin said he thought of Eau Claire as an interesting and peaceful city. He likes American steak but dislikes cottage cheese. He’d prefer, Fofoo, a native food made of either yum tuber or cassava tuber, which is equivalent to our yams. He enjoyed living off campus more than living in the dorms and he spends his spare time playing both lawn and table tennis. The most common complaint of many of the international students was the weather. Most of them came to Eau Claire from warmer climates. Rita, Oddeth and Godwin all said they disliked the cold and preferred their own climates where the temperature was the same all year round. I [ 49Not just another college student: Enrollment doubled this year over last year in the UWEC free audit program for senior citizens. About 60 students, 62 or older enrolled compared to 33 in 1974, Barbara Holbrook, coordinator of the program, said. The senior citizens were eligible to receive tuition, library cards, parking permits and textbooks free, she said. IDs were half price, but any laboratory fees or supplementary texts had to be paid for. Most audited two or three classes, according to Holbrook. Persons under 62 were allowed to audit classes for half the usual tuition or $13.75 per credit, Sarah Harder, older students adviser said. "Though they are not required to write papers or take tests, auditors audit at the discretion of the instructor." Holbrook said. "They need permission of the instructor to audit a class—most say yes.”the “older” auditor Though the 60 student were involved in as many as 55 different classes. Wisconsin History was the most popular class to audit. The 15 older students seemed to enjoy the class and were able to relate the history to their lives. Edward Blackorby, history professor, said. '“This is true," Homer Culver, a history auditor, said. "I have lived in Eau Claire all my life and remember the changes, such as concrete bridges and the automobile. The class brings into focus things that were not important to me . . . but were important events during that time.” Most older students returned to the classroom because they enjoyed it. "1 would like to take more.” .Juanettc Solberg, an auditor in religious studies, said. "I took the class because it was open, but I'm interested in taking a journalism class.” Carol Myers. Images of Women in Literature and Composition instructor. said, "Most teachers, as long as there is room, like to hove students sit in." She audited American Literature this year. "When I sat in on a class. I felt like a part of the student body and not just an alienated teacher."

No, they were not, according to Dr. Kenneth Foote, head of the Transitional Year Program (TYP). Some students were lacking in reading skills, mathematics, or a proper background in the sciences, Foote said. The TYP program was designed to fill these gaps in such a student’s education. “TYP is aimed at all students who are educationally disadvantaged," he said. Deciding who could participate in the program was done by using their high school records; all incoming freshmen in the lower 40 percent of their class were considered. “Although it’s not a strict rule, these are the students who are more likely to have problems," Foote said. “They’re more likely not to complete college." The next move was to interview these students during the summer freshmen orientation program to see if they were interested in participating. The whole program was voluntary, Foote added. It required extra time on the student's part. “We don’t force anyone to stay in," he said, “but by participating, the student is making up for the time neglected in high school. We’re trying to get them up to the level of the others." This year, 160 students were enrolled in TYP, a increase over the past several years. The program included eight teachers and six tutors. Classes were limited to 20 students and there was no charge for participating in the program. Subjects offered ranged from study, reading and communicative skills to mathematics, social sciences, and biology. Classes were structured as normal classroom situations and students worked with a teacher and a tutor during the classes. Students were also required to do outside work in the classes. "It'8 a very flexible type of program," Foote said. “Three options are given the instructor in evaluating the student's performance. ’ If the student makes up the necessary skills, he receives credit and goes on to the regular class. If he makes up most of them, he can go on provided he is tutored in the subject. If the teacher feels the student has not achieved the goal set up, he is asked to repeat the special course. Credit is given for these courses, but the credit is not applicable for graduation or counted in with the gradepoint. “This is not unique," Foote said. “Non credit courses are offered in other areas of the University." Foote said the success of the program was difficult to measure, but that he receives positive feedback from it. New freshmen come to TYP meetings on recommendations from family members or friends who have been in it. There seems to be a good attitude among students in TYP toward the program, he said. “Many favor the program because without it, they wouldn’t be where they are today.” There were some, however, who volunteered but never participated. Some were embarrassed; others wanted to make it on their own or felt that the courses suggested to them were not necessary. These students were not forced to continue. "It’s hard to work with someone who won’t work with us," Foote said. The TYP began four years ago after an evaluation of the Educational Opportunities program. The first year consisted of “kids tutoring other kids," Foote said. Although the program had its good side, raised requirements for incoming freshmen and the lack of minority students in the program (for which much of it was designed) caused some difficulties. In February, it was announced that it would be discontinued due to lack of funding. Alternative programs were being looked at. TYP was an experimental idea that had been reviewed each year. 62Programs proposed, approved Building additions is not the only way the University expanded this year. Changes were made within schools and departments themselves. It was proposed that a Department of Social Work be established, separating the program from its current home in the Sociology depart- ment. This would not create a new major, but would provide an administrative convenience, Dr. Frederick Haug. dean of the School of Arts and Sciences said. The division would provide Social Work with its own budget which would include funds from govern- ment agencies and a social work coordinator-somewhat like a department head—who would be allowed released time for administrative purposes. The major objection to this proposal, according to Haug. is the cost. A department head would have to be appointed which would create a paid position. The proposal was approved this year by the entire School of Arts and Sciences—a process of going through several committees. It was expected to be approved by Chancellor Haas and the Board of Regents by May. Two additions were made to two different schools of the University this year. The School of Graduate Studies was given authorization to grant a Masters of Business Administration in August. In February, a degree in Health Care Administration was approved for the Allied Health program. UWEC Students may now work for any of 17 degrees offered in more than 40 major areas, in the 4 undergraduate schools or the graduate school.

The woman who helped in the founding of the nursing school completed her last year as dean this year. From the start of the nursing school in 1964. Coffman said, “I was dreadfully excited about the opportunities here at Eau Claire.” At part of her activitiei in the School of Nur-ting. Coffman met icith itudent nurtn to dit-cutt changes in prog rami or to plan tpecial yearly eventt She had been involved in nursing most of her life (except for three years during which she was a rural school teacher), and her contributions to the Eau Claire program included everything from designing the nursing building to establishing the curriculum. The first class to enroll in UWEC’s nursing program did so in the fall of 1965. Of the 22 students enrolled, 17 were graduated four years later. Classes were held in Schofield Hall that first year. From 1966 to 1969, Crest Commons was the site for nursing classes. The present two-story building was designed especially for nursing education. It was completed in 1969. In the 10 years Coffman was part of the school, 498 students were graduated as registered nurses—about 85 percent of those admitted. Students are accepted into the school following their freshman year. Selection is based on gradepoint, references, and interviews. The UWEC program has been selective because the city’s two hospitals can accept only 90 student nurses each year. Last year, 175 students were considered for the program. Those students accepted into the program as sophomores are taught basic nursing skills and philosophies. The main emphasis of Eau Claire’s program is community contact and S4retires with class oS 76 understanding patient as people. Coffman, said. "Student have to learn to listen and have a sensitivity to patients’ feelings.” she maintained. One way in which she was able to check the progress of the program was with one-year and five-year followup programs in which graduates completed questionnaires on what they were doing, what responsibilities they had. plans for further education, and how they felt the Eau Claire program prepared them for the world of professional nursing. The graduate's employer was also questioned on how the Eau Claire graduate was performing. Coffman said she received comments indicating great satisfaction with Eau Claire graduate over the years. With the class of 1976, Coffman said goodbye to the School of Nursing. With no specific future plans, she said she would remain in Eau Claire and continue to be involved in community activities. Looking back on her UWEC career she commented. "It's been a privilege being here. I’ve enjoyed working with the faculty and overall, the work has been gratifying."

Square Steppers. Scherzo Club. Primary Club, and the Religious-Social Welfare Club . . . When all of these activities took place in one building on 12 acres of land . . . When the total enrollment of the school was 159 students . . . When tuition was five dollars per semester and room and board four dollars a week. That was sixty years ago. Most of us don’t remember it . . . and perhaps, don't even care. But we do have a heritage behind us. And we’re making history every year. We now may join any of 100 organizations on campus . . . We’ve grown from a single building on 12 acres of land to 21 buildings on 311 acres. We reached what will probably be a peak of almost 10.000 students this year. And Wisconsin residents now pay $329 tuition per semester and $542 for room and board (about $34 a week) in the dormitories. We began back in 1916 as the Eau Claire State Normal School—a teachers college. We remained that way until 1951 when the Board of Regents gave the school the right to grant Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. The name was changed to Wisconsin State University at Eau Claire (WSU-EC). Merger, which began in October 1971 and was finalized last year, united the Eau Claire and other WSU campuses with the University of Wisconsin system. WSU-EC became the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (UWEC). The second of several phases of building on the Eau Claire campus began in 1950 when ground was broken for what was to be Park School. Kjer Theatre. Brewer Hall and the Arena. Katharine Thomas Hall, the first dormitory on campus, was built in 1957—when moat of us were still toddlers. Three years later, Katherine Putnam Hall was finished. It was so named as a tribute to the Putnams—lumber barons who donated the 200 acre park to the state for use by the college as an arboretum and natural forest in 1957. Davies Center was completed in 1959; it was doubled in 1964 and another addition will be completed next year. Between 1961 and 1969—when the school had been graduating students for five decades, seven dormitories. Hilltop Center, the School of Nursing. McPhee Physical Education building, L. E. Phillips Science Hall, and Schneider Social Science Hall were built. The new library followed and the Richard E. Hibbard Humanities Hall was completed in 1974. The University didn’t expand to the west bank of the river until 1970 when the Fine Arts Center and the footbridge were built. Every building on campus has been built with Eau Claire's natural landscaping in mind. Situation of the buildings, the natural walkways, color of the brick used in the buildings, even the redwood entrance at the comer of Park and Garfield, has been done thoughtfully on the part of University planners. The latest addition to Davies is the last in the building expansion program, although a constant effort is In 1929. when the entire cam put coniuted of uhol ur nou call Schofield Hall, thu room tened a$ a itudy halUlibrary to the truer than 200 ttudent who attended Eau Claire State Normal School. 58Above: The beginning of the Munir Department The Eau Claire Normal Band gathered for a yearbook picture in 1922—their first year in existence They played "high clou band music" at pep rallies, basketball games and meetings, according to the 1922 PERISCOPE Belou Basketball teams before the I920'n didn't have the height of recent Blugold teams. maintained to plant more tree and shrubs on campus and to keep Putnam Park the natural “back-to-nature" escape it is for Eau Claire residents.

Delta Although many students recognize the women of Alpha Xi Delta as those who sell the “Talking Valentines” each February, they are involved in much more than that. "We are not just a social sorority. We are involved in many philanthropic projects," said Margaret Hansen, president. This past year, these projects included helping to support a home for delinquent girls, entertaining at the Syverson Nursing Home, donating canned goods to the Welfare Department for distribution to needy families, and reading for the blind. Other regular events outside of rushing and regular meetings include work on Homecoming floats, an annual Halloween party for the children at McDonough School, and participation in all-Greek activities on campus. While classified as a social sorority. Alpha Xi Delta women maintain that they strive for high scholarship among members of the group. Eau Claire's Epsilon Alpha chapter was chartered in 1965.

Although the national chapter has been around since 1902. the Epsilon Omega chapter was chartered on campus in 1956. The DZ’s involved themselves in many charitable and money-raising activities this past year. Some of these included: an egg sale to raise money for the Lazy Eye Foundation, a kidnap party in which the women kidnaped presidents of other local Greek organizations and held them for ransom (using that money to buy canned goods for the needy), a slave sale, a "Clean up Minnie Creek" campaign, and participation in Greek activities such as the all-Greek banquet. The DZ's won third place for their Homecoming float in the parade and at Halloween, they took the children of faculty members trick or treating for UNICEF. Delta Zeta's three main national philanthropies are Gallaudet College in Washington. D.C., devoted to the teaching of deaf students: Carville, the only hospital in the United States that treats victims of Hansen’s Disease; and the Navajo Indians, the largest tribe of Indians in the United States.

The organization's purpose is to unite college women in a program of service to the campus, community and nation, while forming what may be lifelong friendships. There are no special requirements to joining the group other than having and maintaining a 2.0 gradepoint average. Some of the group's projects this year included working with the Kidney Foundation to sponsor an organ drive, organizing parties at Northern Colony, working with the Easter Seal Handicraft Shop to set up sales on campus and organizing bingo games for the elderly. The organization also sponsored a three-year-old South Korean girl. This year, the women of Gamma Sigma Sigma worked with the national organization to try to set up a program in northern Minnesota for handicapped skiiers. Social activities for the year included a Christmas banquet and a spring dinner. There were 11 members in this year’s group, a decrease from last year's 16. The women attributed this decrease to the fact that many of last year's members were graduated and the organization spent less time on rushing and more on service projects. Officers for this year were: Donna Rolland, president; Amy Wetzel, first vice president in charge of projects; Robin Leary, second vice president in charge of pledging; Terry Zopfi, secretary; Pam Vevim, treasurer; Barb Smith, social chairperson; and .Jan Ressel, parliamentarian and historian (left to right in photograph). 63Alpha Kappa Lambda AKL’s main venture thia year was a service—similar to the Big Brother program—in which they worked with fatherless boys in the Eau Claire area. This and other campus and com munity work kept this year’s 20 members active. The Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity also sponsored several “slave days” which involved auctioning AKL members to work one day for area citizens who "purchased" their services. On campus, AKL sponsored "Night in Monte Carlo.” The proceeds from “Monte Carlo” and "slave days" went toward the annual Christmas party which the men held for underprivileged children in Eau Claire. Doing this was AKL’s way of fulfilling their purpose of promoting brotherhood. AKL was founded in 1914. The UWEC chapter (Alpha Theta) was chartered in 1963. Rou I: Terry Landouski.

One of 576 such national service fraternities, APO began as a Boy Scout fraternity and celebrated its 50th anniversary in December. Eau Claire’s APO chapter sponsored its three annual activities this past year: a Blood Drive which collected nearly 800 pints, the “Ugly Man On Campus” contest, proceeds of which went to the Non-Traditional Student Scholarship Fund (for students between 23 and 60 years of age), and a spring outing in Irving Park—a picnic held for children from welfare families and broken homes. For the past four years, the APOs have sponsored church-paintings in Fairchild. WI. According to President Keith Steiger. "The major goal of APO is to try and work on as much of a personal level with people as possible. We try to develop a close relationship with them." Row I: Steve Hay.

Phi Gamma Delta was started on the UWEC campus in January 1973. It received its national charter last April, celebrated by a university luncheon and a formal banquet at the Ramada Inn. Presently advised by Ken Mcln-tire of the UWEC Psychology Department. the purpose of the organization is to promote brotherhood among its members. Twenty-two actives strong, the organization's members consider the fraternity ns both a social and a service organization. This year’s activities included campus, community and group oriented events. The group managed a ski trip to Steamboat Springs. Co. over Christmas break. They brought All-Star Wrestling to the Arena in February and gave an Easter Party for the residents of Northern Colony. On the group level, the Fijis had parties, including their annual Christmas and Fiji Island parties. They also held a ski weekend for the group and participated in all-Greek activities on campus. Aside from activities, the Fijis have the best academic record of any social fraternity on campus. In its first semester at UWEC, the fraternity achieved a 3.09 gradepoint average, the highest among social fraternities here. Since then, the organization has maintained the scholarship trophy every semester. Row I: Mark W Behling. Stephrn C. Atehtr. Gregor,' L Grichtmeter, Thomat M linger, Craig R Neu ton.

They had their share of "beer busts" as well as com roasts and special events including a Christmas party, a "Hell’s Angels" party and a dinner dance. The Phi Sigs also entered teams in all sports offered in the University Recreation program. A social fraternity of 22 men, the Phi Beta chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon has as its purpose promotion of fellowship and the ideals of intellectual, moral, social and physical development. Chartered in 1954 on the Eau Claire campus, it is rated second scholastically among the other fraternities at UWEC. Row I: Mike Flohr. Diant Tondreau (Sweetheart). Bruce Detvoyr.

A sorority established on the Eau Claire campus in 1964, the women of Tri Sigma did other things this past year. They filled up their extra curricular calendar with a Christmas cocktail party, and a Spring dinner dance that took the Bicentennial as its theme. They also made three tripe to Northern Colony—at Christmas, Halloween, and Easter—to entertain the residents there.

BUS is made up of students majoring in Business Administration. Economics, and Business Education. They must have at least 15 credits and no more than 75 to join. The 50 members involved this year sold flowers in the tunnel and held a career conference with the help of the Career Planning and Placement Office. In the conference, BUS members interacted with people in the business world, by asking questions on how to get into the world of business and what would be expected of them once they got there. The 1975-76 officers of BUS were (photo at left): Kevin Kesterson, Glenn Greissinger, Rick Schroeder, Condad Schumitsch, and Lauri Tschumper. 69Inter-fraternity Council Row I Da ic Ar buckle.

Love In 1974. the old idea of a winter carnival was revived by the Inter-Fraternity Council under the name "Whoopie.” It was considered generally successful. In its third year, “Whoopie" with its Bicentennial theme was well received by those who attended. IFC is composed of members of each campus fraternity, each with its own identity, and each planning its own functions, so when IFC plans an event it’s not easy. Phi Sig John Block, who gave up presidency of the organization in December, put it this way, "(We) kind of got to work around and work with them at the same time." Besides "Whoopie”, the group also put out the freshman register. IFC began less than a decade ago. Their purposes were to secure harmony in relationships with member fraternities, to promote the welfare and moral standards of fraternity men, to preserve the high ideals of fraternities, to promote academic excellence and to further relations between the University and administration and the community. Members of campus sororities attended many IFC meetings and were welcome but they could not vote under the guidelines established in the IFC Constitution. (Sororities have a similar group—Panhellenic Council). During second semester, IFC discussed the idea of revising the constitution for an all-Greek group in which both fraternities and sororities vote and take an active role. Sig Tau Mike Schmidt took over the IFC presidency in late December. 70Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia UWEC’s Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia did more than just play music. This year, members of Phi Mu Alpha served as guides and piano-movers for the State Solo Ensemble contests and put up the Christmas tree in the Fine Arts Center foyer. They also sponsored several activities including a small ensemble concert with musicians from Phi Mu Alpha and a Christmas concert in the Fine Arts Center foyer. They were responsible for the Dan Perantoni recital, the Varsity Show and the Faculty Frolics. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia fraternity is the professional fraternity for men in music at UVVEC. The campus chapter. Gamma Beta, emphasizes a professional attitude in musical performance. The organization encourages members toward creativity, education and research in music.

The Music Educators National Conference is a national organization that serves as a source of information for those teachers of music and students pursuing a career in music education. Our student chapter, 409, has as its purpose the advancement of music education. M.E.N.C. offered several programs this year. They held student workshops, field trips, concerts and brought guest speakers and clinitians to the campus. They also attended the annual state convention in Madison. M.E.N.C. offered their services at the State Music Festival, which was hosted by UWEC in the spring. 72Alpha Lambda Delta Alpha Lambda Delta, the freshman women's honorary (which now may admit men), had a particularly active year. Many of the 180 members went outside of the college community to visit nursing homes, for volunteer work. They read for the blind, gave school tours, acted as marshalls for the Homecoming parade and as graduation marshalls for the December graduation ceremony. For the first time, they held an open house for local high school girls in the upper 10 percent of their classes. Alpha Lambda named as outstanding senior students Ann Grau- vogl and Chip Steams. They used scholarship and activities as criteria for choosing the two students. The purpose of Alpha Lambda Delta is to encourage and recognize superior scholastic attainment among freshmen. To be eligible for the group, one must have at least a 3.5 gradepoint average during the freshman year. Members remain active through the sophomore year. This year's officers were: Mary Schultz, president; Linda Krauss, vice president; Mary Terese Walnetz. secretary; Jenny Rubenezer, treasurer; Susan Jo Clements, junior adviser; and Mary Maikowski, senior adviser.

An honor society for seniors, ODK consisted of 12 men in 1975-76. In a relatively inactive year, they participated in Honors Week and held a luncheon in conjunction with their spring installation ceremony. ODK’s purpose is to recognize individuals who have achieved high leadership and scholarship in college and to encourage them to inspire others to do so. The group theoretically brings together for a year the most representative individuals of all phases of university life in an effort to create an organization which could mold the sentiment of UWEC.

National officers were on hand to install almost 100 women who belonged to Gold Caps groups from 1970 on. Family, friends, and University officials joined in the installation weekend which served as a kickoff for Honors Week. Gold Caps was originally formed with the idea that it would eventually seek membership in Mortar Board, a national honor society which exists to serve the University and promote the status of women. Gold Caps began on the road to obtaining this charter by basing its Constitution and bylaws on those of Mortar Board. After a required five-year organization period, screening by national officers, and a vote by members of other Mortar Board chapters. Gold Caps received official notice last December that they had been accepted. Until this year. Mortar Board operated as a senior honor society for women only. However, recent legislative rulings on equal rights in higher education forced Mortar Board to change its policy or face court action and possible disbandment. In a special conference of Mortar Board held in Kansas City in October, delegates of the 167 chapters voted to remove reference to sex in the requirement for tapping. The local Mortar Board chapter will comply (Four members of Gold Caps and Valena Burke attended the conference with no voice or vote). Membership in the group is based on service, scholarship, and leadership. Members are picked at the end of the junior year and are active members during their senior year. Each of this year's group was voted in unanimously by last year's active members, according to Mary Gendron, president. Besides installation, this year's group sponsored the Homecoming torchlight ceremony for coronation, held a leadership conference, and moderated the Chancellor's Roundtables. Rou I: Mary Matkoueki.

Phi Eta Sigma voted at their last national convention to open the traditionally all-male freshman honor society to women as well. Founded in 1923, Phi Eta Sigma was chartered on the Eau Claire campus 10 years ago. Its objectives are to promote higher scholastic attainment and high standards of learning. In order to become a member of Phi Eta Sigma, each student earned a gradepoint average of 3.5 or above during the first year of college. Although primarily an honorary group, members were considered “ac- tive" during their sophomore year of college. Besides holding regular initiations and meetings, the Eau Claire chapter sponsors a tutor service for residence hall students. Posted on dorm bulletin boards this year were the names of the 30 members who volunteered to tutor students free of charge in a variety of different academic subjects. According to Mitch Martin, 1975-76 president, “The purpose of this organization is to help other students achieve better scholastic ability." 76VoilA. A taste of French culture was brought from Europe to Eau Claire via Pi Delta Phi—UWEC’s French club. The purpose of the society is to foment a greater knowledge and appreciation of France and its contributions to world culture. It also promotes interest in the language, literature and way of life of the French people. Members of the group this year held a reception for Henri Honegger, cellist, who performed on campus in October, a French dinner in November, and French Week in the spring. This year’s French Week had the Bicentennial as its theme. In order to become members of the Beta Nu chapter of Pi Delta Phi, students had to hove a 2.8 grade-point average, be at least a sophomore. and be majoring or minoring in French. Pi Delta Phi was chartered on campus in April 1971. Rou I Tammy Rengtton Row 2: Dr Raul Mrrlo. Sue Clinkenbeard. Chris Nerby. Barb Erickson. Mary Mihail, Jill Jackson.

Founded in September 1929 and chartered in May 1964, Psi Chi is one of the nation’s largest honor societies. The purpose of the club is to advance the science of Psychology and encourage, maintain, and stimulate the scholarship of members.

They helped the APO’s with the annual blood drive, the Ugly Man on Campus competition, a program to aid underprivileged children and made signs for the men’s group when they needed them. They also participated in activities on their own. This year they visited area nursing homes to sing carols at Christmastime, held bake sales and made toys for the pediatrics wing of Luther Hospital. In addition to their function as a service group, the APO Little Sisters found time to socialize—as meeting people was another purpose of the group. This year’s group was made up of 17 active members. Row I: Nancy Miller, Reg Martenten, Sue Eaton, Alluon Grundy. Cherry Evjen. Row 2: Ram Engen. Bonnie Hunter. Shen Holle. Deb Bueett, Kathy Schmidt.

As one of their undertakings for the year, the DSNA tutored the children. They also organized an immunization project, a seminar on the expanded role of the nurse and a hypertension screening program. DSNA is a pre-professional organization set up to introduce student nurses to the professional world of nursing. The Eau Claire chapter is one of the 13 districts of the Wisconsin Student Nurses Association which is a part of the National Student Nurses Association. The UWEC chapter has two state officers—Anne Austin, second vice president and Cyndi Busch, nomination chairperson. Eau Claire’s DSNA chapter has 113 members. DSNA informs the student nurse of happenings in the national health field and provides students with an opportunity to get to know each other. Row I: Susan Walton, hit Kostuch. Zerna Kies.

UWEC is one of 10 universities in the United States which is accredited by the National Organization of Environmental Health to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in that area. In its third year on the Eau Claire campus, the Student National Environmental Health Association is an offshoot of this national organization. Consisting of about 25 students—-all environmental health majors—the organization involved itself this year in evaluating the school’s curriculum as well as examining area health standards. Members of the group did a study of environmental health problems in St. Croix County-chosen for its lack of a county health department and its rural community. Several members of the organization represented UWEC last summer at the National Environmental Health Association convention in Minneapolis. One member of the group, Diane Sampson, sent out a newsletter reporting on Eau Claire environmental health activities. They were published in the Journal of Environmental Health, a national publication which all members of the association receive. Several members of the organization put together an audiovisual presentation on the UWEC environmental health program for the summer of 1976 convention of the International Association of Milk, Food, and Environmental Sanitarians near Chicago.Sigma Alpha Iota A metronome sale, a trip to Minneapolis for a musical event and revision of the chapter constitution kept this year's SAI busy. Sigma Alpha Iota is an international professional music fraternity for women. UWEC’s Epsilon Omicron chapter was chartered on November 24. 1969. Rushes were held in the spring and fall and membership was about 14 members this year. All members were music majors or minors or in music therapy, of second semester freshmen standing or above, and had a gradepoint average of 2.25 and a 2.75 gradepoint average in music courses. SAI held receptions this year after its members' recitals and following Musicales—programs in which various members performed for the group. This year, SAI also held a reception at the ERC during its dedication week, attended a state SAI meeting in Milwaukee in October, and went Christmas caroling with Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. All was done to promote their purpose of raising the standards of productive musical work of students at UWEC. Roxanne Trump, one member of the group, was recently accepted to perform after graduation in May with the “Up With People" group. Awards for outstanding members were given in spring. Bev Larson, president, attended the regional SAI conference in Des Moines. IA in April. This year’s conference centered on amending the fraternity bylaws. Roxanne Trump, Debbie Schmidt.

S.A.M., the Society for the Advancement of Management, is the oldest professional management society in the country. Frederick Taylor—an early proponent of organization and scientific management—founded S.A.M. in the early 1900's. This group was designed to give people an opportunity to discuss management problems and promote management principles. The Eau Claire student chapter of S.A.M. had 26 members this year. each hoping to gain knowledge and practical experience in management areas by interacting with local businesses and the Eau Claire senior chapter of S.A.M. This year, the student organization composed mainly of business majors, was in the process of reorganizing and planning so that next year's members will be offered even more varied and practical lear-ning experiences through management-related activities. «t tudeM onocMion The Art Students Association was able to benefit both the group and the campus in a unique way this year. Each semester they held student art sales in the Skylite Lounge in the Davies Center—sales which proved to be of practical value to the artists and aesthetic value to the buyers of the artwork and pottery. It was also a chance for the artists to display their works for criticism—to see if anything was good enough to be sold. Besides student art sales, members of the group served on the jury which chose artists for shows in the Foster Art Gallery. Chartered in April 1975, the group’s purpose is to promote the visual arts within the campus and community. They also try to further educational opportunities for art students, develop ways of improving the curriculum and try to sponsor a variety of art events on campus. Member Craig Anderson designed the Art Student Association logo for the group. Row I: Lori Reinert. Lynn Pierre. Jean Water-malm. Mary K fhermeier. Frank Zetzman. John Webber Rou- 2: Deb Vat.

That’s what the Chinese Students Association attempted to show at their annual Chinese Dinner this year. The Chinese students explained legendary sayings from their culture and told of Chinese customs of celebrating the New Year. The Association, which seeks to promote better communication between Americans and Chinese students, also has as a goal a wish to tell others of China’s culture.

Founded in 1967 and chartered at UWEC in 1969, the organization is open to anyone on campus. ur i i [• Black Students League The Black Student League wa organized in 1970. Thi year. Black History Week, February 8 through 15, wa the major activity of the year. A soul-dinner and a fashion and variety show were the highlight of the week. The Black Student League did this to further their purpose of uniting black student on campus. They tried to make the group a forum for black student to discuss common problems, seek their identity and just provide an open communication system between themselves and other black student unions in the UW system. The league raised much of its money through it dues of $5 a year. This year the league had 52 members. Officers of the organization were Renee Moore, president; Ralph Price, vice president; Felicia Jones, secretary; Brenda Chaney, assistant secretary and Sylvia Coleman, treasurer.

In order to promote understan-ding of the German culture, the German Club participated in the annual Folk Fair, had German Week which included two films and a dinner dance and sponsored guest speakers. They also broadened their backgrounds of German with a visit to St. Paul, MN to see "Mother Courage” (written by a German author), ate at a German restaurant and visited German communities including New Ulm. The club was made up of students taking German classes—some of them majors and minors. Row I: Chert Evjen. Lynn Vlasnik. Sue Fort mark. Barb West.

Its members this year, numbering over 160. were actively involved with special education classes throughout the Eau Claire area, providing a variety of activities and services for them. S.C.E.C. participated in fundraising events for the education of exceptional children throughout the year, the highlight of which was the annual children’s talent show in December. Student Council £or Exceptional Children S.C.E.C.. affiliated nationally with the Council for Exceptional children (C.E.C.). provides its members with an opportunity for personal and professional growth in the field of special education as well as promoting adequate education for exceptional children.Scandinavian Club Above: Row I: David Brian, Amy Knutnon, Barb Wicklund.

They participated in the Folk Festival, sold Scandinavian cookies, performed songs and skits for two nursing homes in the area and presented a program for First Lutheran Church. They also performed in the annual foreign language Christmas party, arranged their own dinner and polka dance, visited the Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, went on a leadership trip to "House on the Rock." and went cross country skiing. They also had speakers including Inger Fandberg, a foreign student. 89Orchesis Row I: Kathy Goode. Row 2: Debbie SchtUeman. Kacy Moran. Chriati Biek, Liao UDeu. Mike Becker.

Orchesis is made up of 16 members whose primary purpose is to relax, enjoy and develop 8 deeper understanding and appreciation of modem dance. Resides working for their own benefit, they presented programs at high schools and Syverson’s Nursing Home. None of the Orchesis members were physical education majors. They had varied backgrounds and some very talented dancers, according to Lisa I-aDew, president. Orchesis had one male member, Mike Becker, who considered himself very “liberated." 90Phy. Ed.

Ed. Club, made up of both men and women in physical education, invited students from area high schools to the Eau Claire campus for a day. Play Day was a workshop designed to show the high school students what the physical education department does. Faculty members and phy. ed. majors demonstrated basic skills of golf, gymnastics, flag football and various other sports. In this way, Play Day, gave the kids a taste of college life at UWEC, said Jo Ellen Kraft, president. In addition to play, the purpose of the club is to help prepare phy. ed. majors and minors for their professional fields, to promote social and professional cooperation between phy. ed. majors, minors and faculty and to help students become identified with the local and national phy. ed.. health and recreation associations. The Eau Claire chapter, chartered in October 1974. has nearly 40 members this year. Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship Dr. Stuart Briscoe, the Gamble Folk, Rod Markin and Guy Brubaker visited the campus this year to participate in programs sponsored by the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. These people, appearing in the spirit of Christianity showed that I-V does more than just weekly meetings. I-V is found on college campuses throughout the world and welcomes students of all religious beliefs. Eau Claire’s chapter was first chartered in the mid-1940’s. I-V's purpose, as always, was to provide a means of fellowship and spiritual growth for its members. A desire to love and serve God through the activities of I-V were the only requirements for membership. This year’s activities included prayer meetings, weekly Bible studies, weekend Bible workshops, conferences and social gatherings. Executive Committee: Cindy Clinkenbeard, firian Sat. Dame Thiel.

The Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi, is the largest and oldest organization serving journalists. Members include professionals working in the media and students preparing for journalism careers in college. Dedicated to the highest ideals of journalism. SPJ-SDX seeks constantly to increase the competence of its members; to recognize outstanding journalistic achievements; to advance the cause of freedom of information; and to promote high ethical standards in journalism. On the UWEC campus, members of the society helped journalism students by sponsoring a resum writing session, a summer internship panel and by offering speakers on issues of importance to journalists. Three students attended the convention in Philadelphia in November to share ideas and review the state of the profession with journalists from all over the United States. The group reviewed court cases and new developments concerning freedom of information and the reporters right of access to the news, and wrote to public officials to encourage upholding of the First Amendment. They also sponsored writing and photography contests to recognize excellence among student journalists. The watchwords of the society are "Talent. Truth. Energy." Its motto is “They Serve Best Who Serve the Truth.” Sigma Delta Chi 93Forensics Grace Walsh, who started UWEC’s successful Forensics team 32 years ago, is still its coach and ad viser. One of the most nationally active chapters of Pi Kappa Delta, the national speech organization, the UWEC chapter has achieved the highest honors of the fraternity in recent years. They were featured on the cover of the 1972 issue of Forensic Magazine and were noted at the national tournaments in Tempe, Arizona, Omaha, Nebraska; Redlands, California; and Philiadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were the winners of the state championship in the Wisconsin Collegiate Forensic Association for all six years of its existence. This past year's accomplishment included winning the Wisconsin Collegiate Forensic Association championship and the Pi Kappa Delta Tournament Sweepstakes. Michael Rindo won the state oratory championship and the team won second place in Varsity Debate at UW-Whitewater. Housed in the foyer of the Fine Arts Center are the many trophies that were won throughout the years. Row I: Ruth Brenner. John Rindo. Mark Schmidt. Steve SchmuMi. Row 2: Grace Walth. Laura Jawonki.

ACTIVITIES . «■After Classes: The places Above: Towers residents had access to a piano in their ground floor lounge for non-study relaxation hours Opposite page: The 50 women who lU'td in the priory traveled four and one half miles to campus each day and returned to their out-of-the-way dorm in the evenings, by shuttle bus. Dorm living What did you learn at college your first year in the dorm? Sharing. With 30 other people on a wing or cube you had no choice but to do that. On that first day you arrived in the dorm, you stared at two and one-half dozen faces, doubting that somehow through the next nine months you'd get to be friends with most of them, and that they’d be people who would share your life—sometimes whether you wanted them to or not. Typical thoughts ran through each freshman’s head: food, noise, parties and people. Depending on the mood or interests, you could usually take or leave all of them. The food was sometimes something you could do without. Invariably, the times didn't coincide with your schedule or the menu wasn't exactly what you’d been hoping for. so the only food you’d get excited about were those occasional “care packages" from home. person's gripe, another's joy, the RA’a never ending battle. How could you avoid noise with so many people living within a couple hundred feet? Privacy was a precious commodity but you managed to work some in here and there. Those students who lived on upper campus could look forward to climbing "the hill” every afternoon. On wash days, dorm dwellers could do wash around 6 a.m. so that the dryers wouldn’t all be in use, and maybe there’d be a working vacuum cleaner when you finally decided to clean your room. After a busy day, you could look forward to seeing familiar people who would coax you into a game of cards when you weren't in the mood to study, drag you into a water fight or stay up most of the night talking about future plans, griping about classes or confiding in each other’s love life secrets. After all, you were sharing. Off campus living After two years in the dorms, you finally got your own place—a place you didn’t have to share with 30 other people. It was a place where you were free to be you. You picked your roommates and in some cases, you pick up after your roommates. This was the place you’d looked forward to living in. You'd explained to your folks before coming to school all the advantages of living in an apartment rather than a dorm. You told Mom how well you'd be able to eat now, since you wouldn’t have to put up with turkey tetrazini or fried peanut butter and pineapple sandwiches from the food service. But you soon found yourself living on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cokes and candy bars because you didn't have time to fix anything else; besides, cooking for one person was no fun. You managed to fix a pretty healthy meal once in awhile, though, to write home about. You had more room to move around in than you did in the dorm so you could spread your belongings all through the house or apartment. You told Dad that this way, living expenses would be fewer ... and they were. The laundermat was 12 blocks away so you didn’t spend money doing the wash very often. You didn’t need much dish soap either: when was there time to do dishes? And your rent wasn’t too high. The place wasn’t the best but your landlord said he would fix it up. although he would only show his face if you were late with rent. But the biggest reason you moved off campus was for the pleasure of living with people you wanted to live with, of seeing children, older people and dogs again. Now you could go as you pleased, make as much noise as your roommates would tolerate and have guests of the opposite sex over without fear of violating the dorm escorting policy. 100we called home Ramada Inn Some of you women came to college and did something you never dreamed of doing as a college student. You lived in a motel. Pretty loose living, wasn’t it? Not necessarily . . . Not if you were one of the 96 women who were living at the Ramada Inn this year as an added dimension to housing lifestyles. Two girls shared a regular motel room and each had her own double bed along with a color television, radio, private bathroom and the use of the pool, sauna and bar. AH the advantages one could want? Not exactly. What if your door got locked (since they lock from the outside) and you had forgotten your keys? You could not have your RA let you in because she didn’t have a master key like dorm RA's did. You'd have to go to the main desk to get into your room. There were security doors on both floors and you were permitted to use the banquet rooms for parties. You also had a study lounge. But one big disadvantage was that you had to pay a dime for off campus phone calls. Your room cost you about $100 more than dorms, but most of you didn’t mind because the advantages made it worth it. The extra money bought extra space ... space you wouldn’t have had in the over- crowded dorms. And you had your choice of dining in any of the three campus cafeterias on the regular University meal plan. The Priory “Where do you live?” you were often asked, and you answered, “St. Bede’s." Chances are you got a funny look or a wise crack. Most students probably didn’t know much about the way you lived. Living in a convent had pleasures of both on and off campus living for you and the 49 other women who lived there. You could do just about anything at St. Bede’s that you could do in the dorms. If you were in the mood to study you had access to the library and were allowed to check out books and magazines. For recreation, St. Bede's had a gymnasium open to you to keep you in shape. The biggest advantage was the beauty of the area and the freedom the place allowed. You could hike on trails or just be alone in the quiet woods around the priory. “But how did you get to school?’’ Buses made 12 runs to and from campus each school day and 13 runs during the weekend. You could either stay on campus all day or go back and forth. You ate in Davies Center, but got continental breakfast at St. Bede’s. St. Bede's rooms were treated as two rooms attached with a door in-between. so you had three roommates instead of one. The biggest problem with living in the convent was that there weren’t lots of activities within walking distance and on weekends, you had to be there when the last bus left campus at 2 a.m. or be stranded in town overnight. Married students You were married, and students too. Where do you find time to see each other?" was probably a common question from your friends. While it wasn’t often that both husband and wife were students and held outside jobs too, that made it easier because you could understand better each others’ problems—you both knew the importance of study time. You may have found that your grades even improved since marriage. With so much to do, and only 24 hours a day in which to do everything, budgeting time became important—many of you 1,426 students did this well. At times, it may have been easy to forego the studies and do other things together. Perhaps you looked back to the days when you saw your spouse more than you did as married students. But the comfort, security and companionship of each other help offset the disadvantages of your busy lives. Home dwelling The basic reason you lived at home was that it was so close to school and room and board was considerably cheaper than it would have been in an apartment or on campus. Home cooking, free laundry service and a private room held good benefits for you too. Your basic disadvantage was having to go back and forth to school. Missing out on campus activities and the opportunity to meet others was 101another, so many of you probably had to make the extra effort to meet people. You either liked studying at home for the quiet, or you had little brothers and sisters around to make it difficult. As time went on. you may have found it hard to coincide your desires with your parents expectations. Students living in the dorms—away from home for the first time—often felt a freedom they'd not felt before, a realization that a person’s life is his her own. But many of you enjoyed the experience of living around people you know—those who know you and care for you. and with whom you could forget the pressures of studies after a day of college classes.

Few of the almost 10,000 students on campus were actively organized in presidential campaigning, however. One of these groups was the Students for Harris headed by Steve O’Malley. This group worked in cooperation with the county organization supporting Fred Harris for president. The student group has been working primarily as a fundraising organization for the Harris campaign. Consisting of 50 student members, it sponsored the movie. “Hearts and Minds” and campaigned in the dormitories second semester. Another group, the Young Republicans headed by Bob Cattau, began their campaigning effort in March and worked in conjunction with the Republican county organization. The group had 11 student members who divided their campaign efforts this year between Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. Another group, the Young Socialist Alliance, is part of a national socialist organization. The group has been supporting Peter Camejo for president and Willie Mae Reid for vice-preisdent. Camejo is the first U.S. citizen of Latin American descent to be a candidate for president of the United States. He has been a member of the Socialist Workers party since 1959 and has been active in the student movement The Yount Socialite Alliance u u about the only group that wot visibly active on camput this year They told literature in Davie Center once a ueek of the early 1960s and the civil rights struggle against segregation. Reid, a black candidate, has supported civil right struggles and helped organize the Illinois Women’s Abortion Coalition. a group fighting for women’s right to abortion. Reid ran for mayor of Chicago in 1975 and is now campaigning across the country in sup- port of the Kqual Rights Amendment. The Young Socialist Alliance sponsored Camejo on campus April 1. The group also set up a literature table in Davies Center every Tuesday during the second semester and sold two publications. The Young Socialist and The Militant. 103IRHC IRHC o ficert for tec and temetttr were Peggy Behling. Joy Ha uon, Dove Sou (teoted), and John Graffa. A “Dear John” letter is something not many people want. It’s a fact, however, that hundreds of people living in the residence halls were exposed to at least one "Dear John" letter this year. In seems like there were a lot of broken hearts, right? There may have been a few, but most of the "Dear John" letters read by on-campus residents were newsletters that were placed in strategic places in dorm washrooms, informing the reader about what the Inter Residence Hall Council (IRHC) was doing. According to Walt Marti, the council’s past president, IRHC’s purpose was to serve as a liaison between students and administration. If a student had a problem or request, he or she could bring it to the council, which would present it, after consideration, to the administration. For example, before a new policy was made, students who lived on campus first semester and decided to marry and move off campus second semester could not get their $76 room deposit back for second semester. Students brought this problem to the council who took it to administration. The two groups agreed that newly married students who had been living in the dorms first semester were entitled to the $75 deposit. This married student policy was passed by IRHC this year. It was a simple process, but a matter of going through the right channels, Marti said. IRHC accomplished other things too. Cable television was installed in every dorm room on campus this year, and without IRHC’s backing, this would not have been accomplished. Social programming for the dorms was one of IRHC’s tasks. They sponsored movies, dances and concerts, such as this year's True Concert. If dorm residents showed an interest in making changes in dorm policies, IRHC established com- 104aids dorm residents mittees which looked into the problems. This year, committees looked into such issues as room painting, alcohol, cable television, 24-hour lounges and 24-hour visitation. On the community level, because Eau Claire’s Bottle Bill did not pass last fall, pop was still sold by the can in the dorms. So IRHC, in cooperation with dorm governments, started a can recycling project in the dorms. Eau Claire’s IRHC will boat the Great Lakes Association of College and University Residence Halls (GLACURH) conference next fall. Representatives from colleges and universities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin will meet to talk about trends in student housing. IRHC was involved this year with planning the conference, Marti said. There were two members from each residence hall on IRHC. One was elected at-large from the dorm and the other was on the dorm's hall council. Officers were then elected from this group. Officers first semester were Walt Marti, president; Wendy Spragia, vice-president; Diane Gugler, secretary; and Joe Mirr, treasurer. IRHC elections were held in January, and second semester officers were John Garaffa, president; Dave One IRHC-sponsored event was the dance with True of America, a Milwaukee rock group. IRHC planned and put on a wide variety of activities during the year Many of them were for the entire college population, not only those living in residence halls. Sass, vice-president; Joy Hanson, treasurer; and Peggy Behling, secretary. UWEC head residents Michael Collette, Bonnie Hunter and Marla Stewart acted as advisers for IRHC. According to Marti, the advisers did not tell the council what to do, but they were there when needed. 106 Social and Cultural CommissionsThe Social and Cultural Commissions of Student Senate spent the year creating and presenting opportunities for students to live, learn and have fun outside the classroom. •Jim Oberholtzer, chairperson of the Social Commission, said “It provides a release to get away from the library and books. It provides a variety of films that arc not only entertaining, but educational as well.” Besides films, the Social Commission sponsored Cabin Cafe entertainment. buses to Milwaukee, concerts. travel opportunities, outdoor recreation and videotape productions. The Cultural Commission sponsored lectures, trips, tours, and programs in the visual arts. The two commissions began as one and are quite similar in operation. There is no real dividing line between the two, Oberholtzer said, although the Social Commission handles the social events as its name implies. “In the early times of the University (when the enrollment was about 1,500), the Social and Cultural Com- missions operated as one,” Oberholtzer said. "They split into two commissions when the University got larger because it was easier to handle. Presently, the two are coming closer together again." The commissions operate on a canmittee basis. The Senate Film Series and the Admission Film Scries were the major projects of the Social Commission Film Committee this year. Both series included recent movies but the Senate films were free and the Admission films cost the students money. This year's Admission films included "Gone With the Wind.” "Serpico,” “Blazing Saddles," "Lost Horizons,” and "2001: A Space Odyssey." The Senate Film Series presented several foreign films as well as "Bananas." "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.” and “Dr. Strangelove." The busing program, which offered buses to and from Milwaukee on certain weekends planned to expand to offer trips to Green Bay. Concerts were offered several tsit to right Julie Snau-dan.

Because the city has no large facility for such events, the commission stopped trying to get "big name" entertainment as it had in the past because the seating capacity in the Arena did not provide sufficient revenue for profit. Concerts were given this year by Melissa Manchester and Orleans, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Kansas and Cain. Cultural Commission Chairperson Barb McCowan said that films provided by that commission were not always "educational." They had scheduled "Toe-Sucking in Albania." or "An Evening of Erotic Laughter," in April. The Commissions played videotapes regularly in the Walnut Lounge of the Davies Center for students to watch during free hours on school days. 107Left: "Don't Shoot Dad!!". Right: Veti Clubt.Days we could do without. . BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT A certain kind of day in the life of a typical student living in one of UWEC’s typical dorms would start with that familiar rudeness. The alarm clock. An omen of the day to come. An enemy. Either it rang too early, too late, or it didn't ring at all. On those mornings which followed a "night before”, the alarm clock’s piercing cry was especially painful. Dead and dying brain cells suffered long and hard. A person knew, instinctively, on mornings such as this, that a certain type of day could be expected. A bad one. Invariably, on these mornings, the bathroom did its best to lower drooping spirits. The soap was missing. The shower was cold. The sinks were either full of hair or dead bugs. Or worst of all, some unthoughtful person forgot to replace the toilet paper. At that point, breakfast was something to look forward to. Until you got there. The scrambled eggs were so cold that condensation formed when they hit the warm air of the lunchroom. The spoon was dirty and the fork bent. The table was sticky and the music much too loud. You chugged your watered-down fruit juice as you placed your tray on the conveyor belt. As it glided into the dishroom. you glimpsed your ID under the napkin. The day was under way. As you slipped your way down the hill, the wet snow slowly omosed into your hide. Slinking into class just after roll call, you dropped your books. You’d try not to fall asleep during lecture and then—Oh no—an open-book quiz and no book to open. An assignment, undone, would be asked for. The teacher would decide to call you out of your daydream. How embarrassing. Fighting the crowds and dodging the cars at Hibbard was great. As was slipping on the freshly polished ice in Schofield parking lot. What else could go wrong? Why not walk out of the library and trip the chiming alarm? And to feel really stupid, pull a few doors that say "push”, then push on the right side when it opens on the left side. Time for lunch. Com Dogs or turkey tetrazini. Pea soup and potato chips. Your salad bowl housed a stubborn clump of green stuff, safely out of reach of dedicated dishwashers. Finally, you’d work up the nerve to sit with that person you admired. then lose a spoonful of jello inches from your mouth. You’d set your arm in the cole slaw. What the hell, why not drop your plate? You hadn’t done that since seventh grade. For dessert you’d put a quarter in the candy machine, then notice the "Use exact change only" sign. In class you’d take a test with a computer-scored answer sheet, and mark the answers from top to bottom when the numbers go across. You’d head back to dormland and take some aspirin. A typical bad day. A day full of broken shoelaces, of running out of matches, of forgetting to buy a number 2 pencil, of racing from McPhee to Fine arts in 10 minutes flat to find the class has been cancelled, of finding little red things in the Country Steak, of having a favorite plant turn brown and die, of getting your sweater caught on a spiral notebook, of breaking the pop-top ring on a con of Coke, of losing a required $10 paperback book, of picking up the phone after the last ring, of sneezing in class without a handkerchief, of not being able to find a seat in the Blugold. After one of those days, it was great to sit back and just take it easy. Relax. Loosen up the muscles and head for a nice soothing shower. You’d grab for the shampoo, and lather up, relieved that every day wasn’t like this one. as the fire alarm would ring. 116A man’s view We started partying around three o’clock in the afternoon, after classes, the first Friday at school. We listened to records out the window, played Frishee. drank beer and yelled things at all the girls. Hod a twelve pock by dinner — feelin' pretty loose and cheaper than happy hour. Dinner in Hilltop. Sneaked a bottle into the Pub with us. Had mixed drinks in the darkness. Hit the snakepit about eight, it was niaring Ricky Nelson on the jukebox. A girl dancing. Goodbye Mary Lou. Good atmosphere, everybody all sweaty and drinking. Very friendly. Saw a girl, good looking, standing by herself. An honest 7.5. Would hove been an 8 but she hod a few zits and a double chin. Tried to catch her eye — didn't. Moved closer, no luck. Was within two feet of her and could've been on Mors. Spilled beer on her success at last. Told her I could dance with her ’til the cows came home, or better yet I’d dance with the cows 'til she came home. Bought her a drink. She was from Beloit, or Superior, or somewhere around there. Her sister went here, did I know her. She's married now. She lived in the dorms, hated the hill, and we ate at the same food service (which she liked as well as the hill). Did I want to play foosball. I ost 11-0. She was bad. I was worse. Bought her a drink. Talked for o while between trips to the can. Made a lot of noise. The whole bar wos noisy. Too noisy to talk — don’t remember what we said. Bartime. I looked to the floor. Ijc 1 six hours someplace. Couldn't have seen my mother. Eyes starting to go. Walked her home. Invited me in for a beer. Neither of us needed it. accepted anyway, not sleepy, tired of walking. She threw up on her roommate's bed. Kissed me goodnight. Got her name and phone number. Lost it. Had fun, I guess. I’ll probably do the same thing next Friday night. A woman’s view. It began as an ordinary night out uith my roommate Jane, but the situation quickly changed as 11t alked in the door of Old Home. A slightly drunk young man grabbed my arm and. trying to overcome the music, yelled "Hi, my name is Doug, and I'm not letting you go ’til you tell me yours!” Nearby, people turned and laughed Trying not to look embarrassed. I game him my name and tried to pull my arm loose. "Hey, uait a minute. ” he said as he tightened his grip. " Why don 'I you and your friend sit dou n and I'll buy you both a beer!” "No thank you, we were just on our way to the bathroom." had always though this to be a reliable excuse and was glad I had said it, since he gave back the use of my right arm "Okay, but come back when you 're done. Don’t run off on me now!" We pushed our way through the crowd of people and out the back door. We decided to try The Stable, and sat down at a booth, each with a glass of l abst. We were on our third beer and still laughing at the earlier incident, when Jane saw Doug approaching I was forming a number of lies in my head but wasn't quite sure which one to use. when Doug slid in next to me. "Old Home is so crowded it takes a half hour to get from one end to the other." I said, before he could open his mouth. His reply was rather inconsistent with the topic of conversation I had suggested. “You know you look really familiar, weren 7 we in the same session at freshman orientation!” 117Not one to fall for .such lines. I gave him an unbelieving look. He quickly returned to his favorite subject. “You girls look awful thirsty. Why don't I get us a pitcher of beer I " We explained that we really had to leave because we had to meet some friends at Old Home in five minutes. "That's another of my favorite lines." I mentioned to Jane, as we left the bar and crossed the street to Shenanigans. The hand was great, and u e enjoyed ourselves until I spotted Doug casually cruising towards me. This was turning into a grown-up version of "Hide and Seek. “ "I see you like the band. Do you uxint to dance?" "No thanks." I casually replied "I’m kind of tired. " 7 can see why. carrying all that weight around Why don‘t we just sit down and have a beer?" "No!" 1 shouted. (Sometimes it just didn’t pay to be polite.) "Look," he said. "My roommate is back at our apartment watching TV Why don V I pick up some beer, and I'll drive us over there?" "Okay, that sounds like fun, ” I answered as Jane kicked me in the shin. "But it’s kind of cold out. Would you mind driving the car up to the front door?" "Sure." he said, and quickly made his way to the dmr. (Some guys are persistent . . . and not too bright.) "Come on Jane. ” I said with a sigh of relief. "It's been a long night. Let ’$ go up the hill. ” 118 »»»©«««Periscope (S®omoQO@oaS — on wdtfuj ooCampus media: SPECTATOR Anyone walking paRt room 108 of Hibbard Humanities Hall at 4 am on a Tuesday morning this year shouldn't have been surprised to find the lights on and the room occupied. It is the SPECTATOR office and Monday was the long day that stretched into Tuesday for members of the campus newspaper staff. Each page of the weekly publication had to be laid out. the copy edited and the headlines written by 8 am Tuesday when the material was picked up and taken to the offset printer in Chippewa Falls to be assembled into the form UW« Eau Claire students recognize and read every Thursday. For the editorial staff, the 8 to 28 page product required many hours a week. Junior John Nessen editor-in-chief, estimated that he spent up to 60 hours a week working on the paper, and when he was not actually working on it, he was thinking about it. For one or more semester, the SPECTATOR became a main focus in life for the students holding the other editorial positions: managing editor, news editors, editorial editor, sports editor, copy editors and photo editor. The editors, as well as the advertising and business manager, applied for the positions and were selected after an interview by the previous semester's staff. Being selected meant then recruiting and directing volunteer reporters and columnists. Most of the newspaper's staff members were journalism majors or minors. Although the editorial board members each received a small stipend for their labors, most did not take on the extra work load for the monetary- reward. They were planning careers in journalism and regarded the work os experience. Nessen said it was something that “grows on you" and after the long hours of mental and physical strain, it was all worth it when the paper came out on Thursday. He felt the staff gained a personal satisfaction from performing a worthwhile service for the rest of the student body. However, recruiting enough capable writers and editors has been a problem which Nessen thinks could be lessened by giving more stipends as an incentive. But the current budget does not allow for that luxury. The circulation for each of the 32 issues published was 6500 this year. Although it is not feasible, Nessen believes that 9,800 papers should be printed—one for each student who pays it via segregated fees. Senior Laura Gintz was SPECTATOR editor first semester this year. Nessen, a junior, took the job in January and will remain editor through December 1976. The advertising staff was headed by senior Clem Wachuta first semester and by junior Dave Wagner second semester.

The yearbook you now page through could be the last of its kind. "Maybe it's just passd," is the opinion of the person who has directed the production of these 304 pages—Mary Gendron, 1975-76 PERISCOPE editor. A journalism major, she applied for the job thinking it would provide helpful experience for future pursuits in the magazine field. While Gendron acknowledges the managerial and editing experience she has gained, she has also had to cope with the double-barreled trouble of poor student nnd faculty support and financial cut-backs. The student response to an active recruiting effort was disappointing. Students from a number of departments were contacted, but from the Journalism department where one would have expected a legion of eager volunteers, the response was just as faint. One reason for this, Gendron thinks, is that a writer or photographer will not see the fruit of his or her labor until May. Also, it is not as helpful as the SPECTATOR to journalism students who are building a "string book" of published work. However, the full-time staff, including five editorial and business positions, has had contributions from about 35 people throughout the year. Gendron; Paula McMartin, copy editor; Ken Shore, photo editor; Greg Williams, art editor; and a few overworked photographers and writers will receive small stipends for their many hours of work. Gendron estimates her job requires an average of at least 30-40 hours a week. Gendron predicts different approaches to the yearbook if it is to survive. Depending upon financial feasibility, students may possibly purchase a biannual magazine, or a publication printed on lower grade paper. Whatever the change, the demise of the yearbook may not be grieved. A recent poll of the Student Senate taken by Gendron revealed that only one-third of the senators considered loss of the yearbook to be of any consequence, while the other two-thirds felt it would be no loss at all. The consequences of a change in future yearbook editions are uncertain. But a review of the present is necessary if it is to be kept from fading into oblivion. 125October 27, 1975 was the highlight of the school year for the campus radio station. That was the date the carrier current station. WSUR. began broadcasting on FM frequency 89.7 and the new station. WUEC was officially on the air. The conversion, which was the result of two years of planning, is on a temporary broadcasting condition, or "program test authority," until the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reviews its application for permanent transmission. Under the direction of station manager Dr. Robert Bailey, associate professor of speech, the staff of 44 students combined their efforts to produce a format of music and cultural and educational programs. UWEC's programming was described as "alternate radio." The station was on the air this year from 7 am to 10 am and 4 pm to 2 am Monday through Friday and from 1 pm to 2 am on Saturday. During that time listeners could hear light contemporary, hard rock, jazz, easy listening and classical music. The reminder of the programing consisted of a wide range of cultural and educational programs, some of which were obtained from a program service. Nine programs were locally produced, such Student Enc Block worked at a disc jockey for WUEC this year. WUEC ticipate in the total operation of a radio station. A student could concentrate on one area or learn all of the production phases, such as news and sports reporting, the technical and aesthetic aspects of program production, promotion and publicity, as well as serving as a disc jockey. Although it has been operating under a new system, WUEC does not have totally new equipment, and the budget does not allow for anything but operational expenses for next year. Capital equipment will have to wait. The most urgent need is replacement of the 10-year-old audio control console, Gunn said. The station’s transmitter has also caused worries since it broke down in January. It was repaired by March, however, when the station went back on the air. as “Tiny Time,” a 25-minute program for preschool children, and "Getting it Together." an interview and discussion program produced in conjunction with the Counseling Center. Some of the staff members earned one credit in Speech 240, "Broadcasting Activity,” but many of the students were volunteers contributing many hours to the various stages of broadcasting operation. Most of the Speech 240 students worked more than the three hours a week required. Peggy Gunn, station operations manager, estimated that together the staff put in 10,000 hours a week. Why? "Because it is one of the best ways to get practical experience in broadcasting." Gunn said. It gave all of the students an opportunity to par-'75% fo b fan t tied If UWEC women crusaded for their rights in 1975, it must have been done underground, because the International Women’s Year (IWY) was here and gone with little visible effect on the campus. "Little is being done on this campus to acknowledge International Women’s Year, Sarah Harder, chairperson of the Affirmative Action Committee said in November. Affirmative Action is concerned with equal opportunity in the job market for minorities, including women. "Ideas for programs were given to various organizations on campus to honor International Women’s Year, and nothing was ever done, “Harder said. Dr. Nadine St. Louis, co-chairperson of Women in Higher Education (WHE) agreed. She explained that WHE encompassed the women faculty members. St. Louis said part of the problem was that women on this campus were "over organized". “They belong to too many different organizations and go to too many meetings.” she said. "This is just another thing to get involved in and no one really has the time.” St. Louis said that this year there were few specific problems for WHE to handle. Attendance at the meetings was low and even if there was individual feeling among the women faculty, there was little organized thought. Harder said there were some attempts at honoring International Women’s Year, such as sponsoring A variety of different types of artwork linn displayed in thr Foster Gallery September 14 through October 1 when several area women comprised the "Year of the Woman" exhibition. Forum speaker Gwendolyn Brooks. After the Forum, there was an allfemale panel discussion, but this was just a token gesture compared to what could have been done, she said. The second Annual Women’s Day on Campus was held on October 25. It was sponsored by the University Women’s Association. Speakers throughout that day included Dr. Rita Gross, assistant professor of philosophy and religious studies; Signe Ortcz. associate professor of art; Dr. Sylvia Sipress, associate professor of political science; Dr. Jerry Johnson, professor of economics: and Dr. Elmer Winters, foundations of education department chairman. The speakers chose such topics as "Male Female or Human?" and "Meet Comrades Anna and Ivan: Citizens in Soviet Society Today.” Toni Decker, co-planner of the event, said about 135 people attended the day’s activities—more than last year. "We are in the process of building and we feel we are reaching more people each year." Decker said. "The Women’s Day On Campus was probably the most that has been done up to this point honoring women, but again, this is something that is held each year and not just for the sake of International Women’s Year," Harder said. “There are no specific problems and women on this campus just aren’t getting wrapped up in the observance of International Women’s Year,” St. Louis said. 127News beyond The college student. Educated, well-rounded, “up” on what’s happening in the world, the leader of tomorrow. But isolated, too. It's so easy to feel separated from the "real world" when you’re involved in the university community. You're cut off, engulfed in thought of tomorrow’s exam, next week’s party or plans for Spring Break. What happened this vear outside UWEC? Classes began on Tuesday. September 2, the same day as investigation was begun on the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, ex-Ten msters bora. On that day, Egypt and Israel made an agreement for a second Israeli withdrawal in the Sinai Desert. By Thursday, the 4th, as you began to get back into the routine of school, more than 700.000 children around the nation were out of school because teacher in 10 states were walking picket lines. Then Friday, as you were getting into some weekend relaxation, Lynette “Squeaky” From me was arrested for an attempted assassination of President Ford. On the 10th. 1.400 Uniroyal workers found out that they might be out of job soon, because of a cutback in production. September 23rd. As you dozed off during your Inst class.

In October, things were moving faster for UWEC’ students—six-week exams, football games, getting ideas for term papers and projects. As Homecoming neared, Eau Claire voters rejected both the school bond referendum and the bottle bill. Later that month, Uniroval workers discovered they would still have jobs, and Fowl had another life-threatening experience— this time hi car was hit by a car full of teenagers. The Packers won u football game. By the end of the month, as students took off for a weekend or started to look for rides home for Thanksgiving, the World Football league announced it disbandment due to financial troubles and an 1975the university bus line between Knu Claire and Chippewa Falls was initiated. In November, ns students looked forward to the first Rood snowfall, the Knron Quinlan case received national attention with the controversy over whether she should be kept on the machines that were keeping her alive.

Richard Nixon visited China as a private citizen. In Guatemala. 17,000 people loaf their lives in an earthquake. Patricia Hearst was on trial in San Francisco. And the year went on.

It was there, if we took the time to look outside the sheltered world of the college community. 1976130131i:i5Beer, booze, pot, speed; students get ‘high’ on li£e It was a rough week — three days of tests, not much sleep, love life on the downswing, and if your roommate said one more thing . , . You needed on escape from the four green walls of dormland; to relax enough to t hink or just to sleep: to get your mind on more pleasant ideas; to have fun . . . Drinking was the common denominator at UWEC; 93 per cent of the student population drank this year, according to the student value study Richard Bovum, campus psychologist, conducted in the fall with a stratified random sample of 431 students. Fifty-three percent of those students indicated they enjoyed drinking; 20 percent disagreed. "Drinking is more of a fun escape where you can go ahead and get rowdy," Ray (all student names are pseudonyms) said. Why do you drink? "God, that’s a good question," Nancy said. "A lot of people who can’t talk use it as an excuse. A lot of kids do it because it’s the big college thing to do. If you’re not studying, you go down to The Street just for something to do. I go out to drink to have a good time, to laugh and ... I don’t know ... to play foosball. . .” “Spend a buck for a party and it’s your whole night" . . . "it’s THE social activity. Until you get a little bit older you tend to be a jellyfish and just flop along." Nationally 44 percent of university students drink, according to the National Committee on Marijuana and Drug Abuse. When you’re down on The Street you never really have to face anything. Vou can let your energies out I guess." Ray said. Not everyone accepted the Water Street syndrome. Dave and Sarah (who both drink) discussed the phenomenon: Dave: "The success is that people want to meet other people. They lind out fast that even if you meet them, you don't really know them." Sarah; "You get drunk, and you're not aware it’s such a dull time. One time in 10 you have fun. and that's enough reinforcement to go again." When is alcohol a problem? National statistics claim one of every 10 people who starts drinking becomes an alcoholic. —Seven percent of the University survey respondents said they had a drinking problem; 45 percent said at least one of their friends did! —One third of the pregnancy cases which came to the UWEC counseling center this year were alcohol induced, Bovum said. —The counseling center treated 20 to 25 people came in for help about drinking. Some of these were people who drank a half of a fifth of liquor a day; those who could down 15 shots of whiskey without realizing it was gone. - Using local and national averages. 700 to 1.000 UWEC students are alcoholics or potential alcoholics. One and a half ounces and you began to feel better immediately . . . tension was relieved. The University is only an extension of an alcohol permeated society. Look at the advertisements, the television, "adult" society. It’s expected behavior. If you haven’t been drunk, you have to have a reason you don’t do it. Sarah explained. Besides alcohol, we used other drugs to change the way we feel. Marijuana, barbiturates and amphetamines were the most common this year at UWEC. Marijuana: acapulco gold, jamaican. Columbian, wisco weed. Twenty six million people in the US have experimented with marijuana; 420.700 were arrested in 1973. The National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse recommended in 1972 that the ban on private use of marijuana be lifted. Smoking marijuana is also a social phenomenon, according to those interviewed. When they started “it was the thing to do. you could go out and get stoned with your friends". . . "the first couple years of college, if you found someone who smoked you thought you two were different, special." "At first it was an adventure and pulling something over on someone." Dave admitted. "I enjoyed it. I didn’t get a hangover like I did with booze. At the time it seemed cheaper than going to the bar and drinking booze, but then you eat a lot ... I put on weight." Most agreed that marijuana was a tension reliever. "It’s an escape from that realm that causes all kinds of hassles like studying or difficult social interaction,” Ray said. It seems that in many circles at UWEC, marijuana was accepted as 140readily as alcohol, (loins to a friend's house to smoke a little instead of having a few beers wasn't uncommon here. Though students interviewed estimated 65 to 75 percent of UWEC students had tried marijuana, Bov urn’s study indicated only 55 percent had. What's it like? Smoking puts you either into a state of nothingness, where your mind is inactive or into another state where your awareness of physical surroundings grows. Ray said. "Small motions become big motions." Dave said he’s not smoking as much as he used to. “My mind would take off on all these bizarre thoughts . . . I got into doing a lot of heavy thinking when I was high, and I didn't enjoy it any more. The fun part was out. it was gone." Bob believed too much smoking was part of the reason he flunked out of school once. "Alcohol may he really bad for your body, but it doesn't mess up your mind as much as marijuana ... If you smoke alone you start imagining things and assembling ideas in weird ways . . . it’s like part of your brain is heightened. I’m more concerned about what people think of me (when I’m high)... I’m very insecure after I smoke too much." Dave. Sarah and Bob said marijuana was losing popularity on campus this year. It was too common: it was moving into the high school and junior high school; it was a passing thing. Speed and other amphetamines were becoming more popular, the same group said. "Speed is just something to get your body going. You don’t get any freaky sensations, but you can be up for 48 hours without knowing it." .John said. Students speed to study and to diet. Only 20 percent of the students in the University survey admitted to having tried speed. Twelve percent said they used it two to ten times. "I think I’ve discovered through trial and error that you can speed and study, but if you're not still speeding when you take the exam, you'll forget everything." Ray said. Speed was good to start studying with. Bob agreed, but it was difficult to learn. It's as if your mind was a filing cabinet and you filed things in weird places while you were speeding. Ten percent of UWEC students used hallucinogens, according to Boyum’s survey. One percent of those surveyed used hard drugs occasionally; two percent used them up to ten times. Ten percent of the students said they'd tried barbiturates.Thirteen interesting £acts about UW-Eau Claire Most yearbooks mould have you believe that college life is nothing but excitement. In reality, however, ordinary and unexciting things happen every day. and they always have. It 's just that we don't usually notice them. To draw attention to these often-overlooked events, we have compiled a list of some of the most forgettable events from the 60 years in Eau Claire’s past. I On February 13, 1952, the SPECTATOR reported: "Ann Orton broke out with the measles in the middle of a final exam." Also getting measles that day were Janet Howard, Elton Knutson. Susan Adams. Jean Baker. Ron Allen, Ivor Rogers, Annabelle Mathwig, and Vito Rocanelli. In 1967, the school's ushers got their new blue uniforms. 6 In 1951, Vito Rocanelli (Remember Vito?) won a two dollar prize for coming the closest of all contestants in estimating the number of traffic deaths for that year. 7 In a brilliant display of offensive fireworks, the 1924 Blugolds basketball team crushed the Fort Snclling Officers, 9 to 8. (It seems like they might have scored more than that by accident.) November 1968. A new foursided scoreboard was delivered to the Arena. 6 Home 7 Rene Phillips 8 Women 9 Movies 10 Studies 1969. Dorm rooms got JL telephones. In 1955, the SPECTATOR I asked students this question: "Should women chase men?” An unidentified female gave this thoughtful and emotionless reply: “I haven't met a man worth chasing.” A male student came up with a rational solution to the whole situation: “I think they should send the girls back where they came from. Coeds and women are two different classes of people.” In 1968, the "New Colony Six” played for Greek Week. 3 On September 29. 1954, the Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire received an eye chart from the Wisconsin Optometric association. Dr. Arnold Bakken received the gift on behalf of the biology department. "The chart, which greatly improves facilities of the biology department, is ap-predated very much," he said. 4 In 1921, “Pickles” Mac-mahon was a bench-warmer for the Blugolds. on an 18-man football squad. (There are 22 starting positions.) 9 In 1959. Epsilon Zeta. an organization for two-year rural students, constructed the winning homecoming float. It featured a large box of Lux soap, strings of blue and gold stockings, and two girls in football uniforms and stockings. Its theme: "Even Lux Can't Stop Our Runs." On February 13, 1952. Ralph A Jand Rocky. SPECTATOR columnists, compiled this list of things that barracks men talk about most, in descending order: 1 Women 2 Basketball 3 Women 4 Cards 5 Women 4 Revealing the rebelliousness J that would mark future generations of college students, the freshman class of 1952 voted not to wear the traditional beanies. To meet this daring, unprecedented act of impudence, the sophomore class called several emergency meetings and came up with a decisive plan of action. Shortly thereafter, five freshmen received complimentary haircuts, and one received a dip in the creek. The next day, the freshmen wore their beanies. 142Senate works on budget, legal aid What is the real responsibility of student government? This is one of the questions that the UWEC Stu-dent Senate tried to answer this year. The 1975 Senate was presided over by President William "Chip" Steams and Vice-President Larry Ringgenberg. The legal aids program was one of Senate's main concerns. According to Steams, such a program would provide legal services to students at no cost. Steams served as president until November when he resigned. Ringgenberg stepped in to take his place. With Ringgenberg as the new president, the Senate continued to work on issues they felt were of importance to students. Ringgenberg noted disciplinary guidelines and work on the legal aids program as being priority items. Also considered were issues of collective bargaining. 24-hour visitation and the mandatory dormitory requirement. The Academic Affairs Commission helped obtain a pre-final study day for students. It also worked on revising the general studies program and the grading system. Jerry Heer, Student Life Commission chairperson, said that students had become more involved in the budget process. Senate had the task this year of allocating $540,000 to groups that requested $621,100 of the organized activities fees budget. Subsequently, several groups did not receive as much as they had requested. The budget excluded funds for the day care center and for a proposed television workshop. According to Ringgenberg, the Senate refused to allocate funds to the children’s center because it was to become self-supporting in three years. The Senate, according to Ringgenberg, is the "watchdog for student rights." It gives students an organized voice in what happens at UWEC. Heer said the Senate’s duties include representing ideas to the faculty, central administration, and in special cases, the state legislature. This year, says Ringgenberg.

M3J-Board revises policies Anyone who lived in a UWEC Residence Hall remembers Judicial Board—a tool for keeping law and order in the dormitories. The student-run J-Board. consisted of 11 representatives from the dorms plus a chairperson and secretary' for this year. Until last spring, J-Board had 22 members. The number of representatives was decreased to facilitate operation. Before last spring, representatives were elected on the basis of population. This year, each dorm had one representative. The board was set up to handle cases in violation of the Residence Hall Judicial Code. Cases were brought up by a resident assistant (RA) if a student violated the code or if the RA thought that a student's behavior was flagrant and ought to be brought before J-Board. Charles Major, assistant director of Housing and J-Board's adviser since August 1975, said J-Board handled about 35 cases, an average number, in the Fall 1975 semester. This year the Residence Hall Code prescribed punishment in the way of probations, restrictions, suspensions and expulsions from the university, changes of room or floor, work details and clean-up. change of residence halls, letters to parents and any other means the J-Board deemed appropriate to the circumstances. The J-Board met Thursday evenings depending on how many cases were pending. J-Board functioned, not as a court of law, but as a body to review alleged violations. Its purpose was to make recommendations that would most effectively benefit the accused as well as protect the majority of residents. The accused were able to plead guilty or not guilty and majority ruled in the voting. Six members of the J-Board were present at every meeting to vote. Both the accused and the accuser had the right to appeal J-Board decisions. The appeal was made to Dr. Ormsby Harry, the assistant chancellor of student affairs or to his designees. Major explained the part the formal warning played in the judicial process at the University. "The least severe punishment is the formal warning." Major said. "If a person gets a formal, then doesn't get one for another three months, nothing happens. If the person gets another formal in the next three months after his first formal, he is brought before the J-Board." The Housing Office took control of J-Board from the administration in November 1975. Associate Dean of Students Robert Shaw, who was formerly the adviser for the J-Board. said. "The Housing Office is in a better position to implement, since they are in more direct contact with the students." When J-Board first began operating, elections were held in the Thu year's o fiem for J-Board itere dorm rrudrnt Brian SiehoU. Prtt Benton. Kay Stepien. and Shtila Donoghue fall. That was changed last spring. "It was done to assure continuity," Shaw said. "We wanted more sophomore people on the board, too." Shaw said that to his knowledge, no other school in the state of Wisconsin has a judicial board of this kind. Some additional changes were made in the code in January. Before then, a student who failed to sign in a guest during visitation, received a five dollar fine on first offense. In January, the fine for this violation was set at $10. Other fines increased to $10 were for illegal visitation on non-visitation wings and for failure to escort a guest of the opposite sex. For each of these violations, a second offense would send the student directly to J-Board. This year, use of the restrooms by the opposite sex was given a $10 fine and hall probation for three months for the first offense, and for the second offense, a direct referral to the J-Board. Also, a student found removing a window screen was fined five dollars and given a formal warning. 144 1111111 s e s s 6 a .B m 111111 a 1111 Grain 6el+ THE JOYNT Ul»eNKUG6L'S . OSTJTAP THE JOYNT148Spirit, spirits make Homecoming In America's 200th year, the 1975 Homecoming of UWEC will be one to remember. Not only will it be memorable for the 2,000 alumni who revisited the campus, but one which brought students closer together in the Blugold spirit of celebration. Homecoming week provided many activities for University students including the Multi Media Collage, Snake Dance, "Yell-Like-Hell" contest and a Social-Cultural Commission video tape. Musical projects provided were the Varsity Show, two dances featuring Frank Kinayski, Studebaker 7, and Jean Ritchie. Monday night, Jean Ritchie, a traditional folksinger, started UWEC’s 51st Homecoming celebration when she appeared at the Arena as part of the Forum Series. Tuesday brought the "Rally" behind Governors Hall which enabled all the students to meet the King and Queen candidates. Wednesday night Hilltop was divided between Frank Kinayski and their polka music and Studebaker 7 with their ’50’s music. During intermission the five finalists for King and Queen were announced. They were: Colleen Corcoran and Kevin Cook (Oak Ridge), Nancy Johnson and Dale Peterson (Putnam), Mary Maikowski and Bill Hutchinson (Sutherland), Ellen Engelking and Jeff Romaine (Towers-Men), and Betty Tapendorf and Larry Lecheler (Towers-Women). Thursday, the "Yell-Like-Hell" contest was won by Horan Hall and afterwards, a Snake Dance, led by the cheerleaders and pompon girls wound through the dorms and down the hill. Once they reached the bottom, the "Carnival" was held on Davies lawn, featuring a Jello-eating contest, a cracker-whistling contest, a Tootsie Roll chewing contest and Tug-of-War battles. The Varsity Show started off Friday night's activities with nearly 700 people attending. The show, run by Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, consisted of performances by UWEC actors, the UWEC Jazz Ensemble I and the Singing Statesmen. This was followed by a torchlight procession to the footbridge for the coronation of King and Queen Bill Hutchinson and Mary Maikowski. Water Street and the 69-unit parade featuring Mrs. Richard E. Hibbard, honorary parade Grand Marshall, started Saturday morning with great spirit. The parade chairman was Greg Minster, who was assisted by: Mark Dunn, Kevin Johnson, Gene Flanagan, Jim Allan, Steve Oppeneer. Alan Page, Randy Evans, Tom Brown, James Thorb, Scoop Salmon, Steve Zastrow and Robert Irish. Other features of the parade were the UWEC marching band and 25 other bands from Wisconsin. Floats were entered into competition from residence halls and various organizations on campus. The winning float—a replica of U.S.S. Constitution, "Old Ironsides"—was from the Vet's Club. Indian summer weather graced the parade and the picnic, which followed. The football game against the River Fall’s Falcons brought an estimated crowd of 6,500, said Tim Petermann. sports information director. "In the eight years I've been at Eau Claire, that is the biggest crowd we’ve ever had," said Petermann. The King and Queen were again announced with their court during half time and UWEC’s band arranged their routines to a Bicentennial theme. A semi-formal dance featuring Dominic Spern’s Big Band Sound and an informal dance with PF Flyer ended the Homecoming festivities Saturday night with approximately 200 attending. As in the Homecoming custom, many students had an active three-day good time at private parties. Happy Hours, Water Street and the Carson Park Picnic. The Blugold’s spirit of “Pluck the Falcons" did not give them a Homecoming victory (they lost 27-0) although it carried on throughout the Homecoming week.

This section of the Periscope is a special project of mine, designed to serve as a close-up look at some of the people who help make the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire the unique place that it is. First of all, I should explain exactly what it is that I’m explaining. This section of the Periscope features a series of caricatures depicting 12 well-known personalities from various levels of University heirarchy. In choosing subjects, we attempted to get a fairly random, if not entirely representative, sample of UWEC personalities. Since the limitations of time and space made it impossible to include persons from all areas of the University, one primary consideration for the choice of subjects was their “recognition potential." Perhaps those thousands of persons who have not been included in this section should consider themselves lucky. A caricature, for those who may not know, is an exaggerated representation of a person, accomplished through distortion of prominent aspects of that person’s physical appearance. Although many people automatically assume that the intent of a caricature is to ridicule, that is not the case. A well-executed caricature will often resemble the subject even more than a photographic portrait, since the artist is able to manipulate the subject’s physical appearance to inject aspects of the subject's character, as well. However, this is not to say that these 12 caricatures are totally effective. the art of caricature is an extremely difficult and delicate one to learn and I am but a virgin traveller in this alien land. After first deciding which facial features should be enlarged and which should be reduced, the artist is confronted with the formidable task of pulling the whole mess together into a unified whole. Suffice it to say that the fault may not be entirely yours if you can’t seem to see the resemblance between some of the caricatures and the persons they are intended to represent. At least I tried. In conclusion, let me say a few words about the articles accompanying each caricature. Rather than attempting to write a definitive biography of each person included in this section, we opted instead for a short article dealing with one or two aspects of that person’s life as it relates to the Eau Claire campus. These articles were written by Bev Bisek, who deserves a good share of the credit or blame for the success or failure of the next 24 pages. Thanks Bev. 166Leonard Haas Have you ever considered the problems that go along with being a celebrity? Take, for instance, the problem of being recognized wherever you go! Chancellor Leonard Haas has learned to expect such recognit ion as one aspect of his job. Chancellor Haas came to Eau Claire in 1941. just four months after he was married. He started as a history teacher and worked his way up to the position he holds today. One of the drawbacks of being the Chancellor is the fact that it allows little time to take a vacation. Haas said. “We're on the job seven days a week. We’re on call any hour of the day during those days. So you can see it hasn't been possible for us to take vacations very often." Even though Chancellor Haas has a busy schedule, he and his wife still try to take time out for a short trip to a different part of the United States each year, and it seems as though wherever he travels, he is bound to be recognized by someone. “There are many people who recognize me because of the position I'm in. simply through television and public appearances. It leads to some very interesting happenings. You can never be sure that you're really alone. You always have to be prepared to see someone you know.' On one occasion while the Haases were in New York they saw someone they knew within three minutes of their arrival. Mrs. Haas wanted to do some shopping, so they went to a department store on Fifth Avenue. Chancellor Haas wasn't in the mood for shopping, however. "I'm a traditional husband in that case. I don’t care to be running around stores, so 1 sat down near the store entrance so I could see the people coming and going. While I was sitting there, a member of our faculty came up to me and asked. ‘What are you doing here President Haas?’ An even more phenomenal case occurred while the Haases were in Sweden in 1971. They went to Stockholm thinking the only person that they knew there was the manager of the Stockholm Orchestra, who had recently visited the Eau Claire campus to present a concert. Considering the fact that Stockholm is a city of 500.000 it seemed highly unlikely that they would meet him. or anyone else they knew. Again, however, they were in a department store and Chancellor Haas had strategically seated himself at the store’s front entrance while Mrs. Haas went shopping for souvenirs. “While sitting there, a man and a woman came up to me and tapped me on the shoulder and said. ‘Why President Haas, why didn't you let us know you were coming to Sweden?'" The young man was a graduate of UWEC and a former part-time member of the faculty, teaching Swedish. "I don’t think we have been anywhere for any length of time that we have not had this experience. I'm just happy that we've been able to live in a community of this size, because you really do get to know the people." What's it like to be an assistant director of the Housing Department? According to Bob Brisiel, assistant director of Housing, you have to be different things to many different people. Brisiel, a transplanted Pennsylvanian Dutchman, has a great interest in the lives of students living in the residence halls, after living in dormitories and serving as a graduate resident assistant for two years in Georgia. Brisiel's main function is to help students find housing on campus and within the community. "This means dealing with 3600 on-campus students and providing a list of landlords for those students wishing to live off campus. It also involves a great deal of paper work, like drawing up housing contracts," he said. "It’s not the kind of job where people run into your office and say ‘thank you’ for the cable T.V. or walls. It just goes against human nature for people to do that." "However. Housing understands this, and we continually make an effort to see people. Experiencing only limited student contact is the tragedy of many administrators. I want people to feel comfortable in this office." There are certain routine things that go on in the Housing office every year. One example of this is contacting those students who have reserved a room, but have not shown for school. These students are referred to as "No-Shows." Brisiel recalled one incident where he called a home to find out why the student living there had not come to school. Brisiel asked the woman who answered the phone if he could speak to John. The woman told Brisiel that John was out in the front yard and would not be coming in for some time, so thinking it was John's mother, he asked if John was going to come to school this year. "Well, John is 87 years old." the woman replied, "and I don't think he wants to return to school." "This is what keeps a person going—the fact that things are never constant." "One thing we all recognize is that dorms do have some shortcomings. However, I think one year after moving out of the dorms you miss dorm life. The problems that seem so big at the time are just a part of our total education. Dorm life is a good time and it is here that some tremendous life-long relationships start." Things that go on in a dorm, like helping one another study for tests or competing with one another, help build "solid citizens for the future.” 159r Ibnn Lilly ! According to Lilly, instructor of art history at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, one of the reasons he turned to art was because he. “likes to look at dirty pictures." Seriously, however. Lilly believes art to be terribly useful. It helps us to see the meaning of life, he said. To Lilly, every day in the classroom is a trip back to Europe. A few years back, Lilly joined the Army and was stationed in southern Europe; while there he began to take a real interest in art. "I had no real inclination toward art in the United States. Art has always happened in Europe." Throughout his travels in Europe Lilly began to realize how important it is for everyone to have some kind of exposure to art. Lilly began his college career at the University of Minnesota as an English major before joining the Army. He soon discovered that school was not his thing—at least at that particular time. What he really wanted to do was get away from school and travel. "Travel opens up a whole new world. I wish someone had told me earlier to get out of school, because I really didn't belong there. It is so easy for all of us to become rut-bound.” This is the main reason why he stresses such undertakings as student trips to Europe. "If you haven’t had any exposure to art, art history won't mean anything.” He wants his students to realize that art history really is important. In order for students to understand this, Lilly often asks them to ask themselves the question. "Why am I here in the first place?" The most enjoyable part of his work is seeing how the students react to art. Lilly recalls a trip he made to Spain with 39 students. The students were given an opportunity to see some fine works of art, giving them a greater insight into what art actually is. "It's exciting when the kids respond. It’s fantastic to be able to share the enthusiasm of something as great as art.”William Steams, former Student Senate president, is one of the many people who go through life with a nickname. The students who know him never call him by his full name, and as far as William is concerned, his name is “Chip." Chip says he doesn't even consider himself a Bill or a William because no one has ever called him those names as far back as he can remember. "My mother said that when I was a baby my cheeks were really puffy and I looked like a chipmunk with nuts in my mouth. That’s why she called me "Chip." The nickname caught on. Chip has been very active in many university organizations while he has been here. One of these organizations was Student Senate. Chip became a senator in the fall of 1974 and in February 1975. he won the election for senate president. Chip served ns president until his resignation in November 1975. Even though Chip did resign, he says he has no hard feelings toward the senate. He believes that while he was in office many of the things he hoped to accomplish were done, he says. When Chip began his term as president he made one of his goals making student government more "tangible" to the students. "Many attempts were made to make student government more tangible.” Chip says. "Such things as posting senators' office hours were implemented. This has given students the opportunity to come in and talk to the senators." Chip says there was also a great deal of progress made in the development of the legal aids program. "My philosophy is that if the students are solely interested in one area of concern, then 1 believe it is the duty of the elected representatives to work on that one concern.” Chip says he is still interested in politics at all levels, and he hopes to become involved in such organizations as the Democratic Youth Caucus. "The biggest job of student government at this point, is to let the students know what their student government does," Chip says. "In essence. sell student government because there is definitely a lot to sell." Chip has no definite plans for himself, but he has applied to several law and graduate schools. When you were sitting at a football or basketball game looking at the cheerleaders or the pompon squad did you ever catch yourself thinking that all the tumbling, cheering, dancing and kicking they were doing seemed to take no effort? "It looks very easy when you're sitting in the crowd, but it's really very difficult, according to Ruth Shervey, former cheerleader and this yeor member of the pompon squad. Since Ruth was a member of the cheerleading squad for three years and a pompon girl for a year, she knew about all the work that went on behind the scenes, "When you're a member of the pompon or cheerleading squad you spend a great deal of time preparing for each game,” Ruth said. "People know who you are and they know how many things you do wrong as well as how many things you do right when you’re out in front of them." Being a cheerleader involved many hours of practice, Ruth said. The squad practiced six hours a week. The cheerleaders were expected to be at the gomes two hours before they began. Practice involved working out with one's partner various cheers and stunts. Ruth said she was never seriously hurt while doing a stunt, but there were times when she felt herself falling and had to put all her faith in her partner. “Since you’re in front of the crowd you just keep right on smiling," Ruth said. "You really do trust your partner though, because you work with him so much.” The cheerleaders also carried on other behind-the-scenes duties. For instance, the cheerleaders made things to put in the locker rooms before games. The squad also planned activities for Homecoming. One thing that many people weren’t aware of was that the cheerleaders often helped judge high school cheerleading try-outs, Ruth said. Being a member of the pompon squad also meant hours of practice. "We usually practice two times a week for two hours at each practice." Ruth said. "Then we practice for one hour right before each performance we give." Ruth said being a member of the pompon squad allowed little room for error, especially since the squad was out on the floor only a few minutes and they had to prove themselves within that time. "You really get nervous because each time you go out there, there’s a chance you're going to blow it. But moving around so much gets rid of the nervousness." Ruth said the most rewarding thing she found in participating in these two groups was the reaction of the crowd. "Everybody, both cheerleaders and the pompon squad, put a lot of work into each game. The crowd is usually really receptive to what everyone does. That’s what makes it all worthwhile."Robert: Fossland Dr. Robert Fossland, biology professor, expects all kinds of questions from the students in his human sexual biology class, but in his own words, "I get some real lu-lus!" After each class, Fossland has his students turn in cards with questions relating to the class. In the next class period, he answers them—every one of them (without revealing the students' names). "Are you good in bed?” one student ventured. He answered, "It depends on the situation." Seriously, Fossland sees a true need for students to have their questions about sex answered honestly. "Often, students asked their high school teachers about sex, and they were told to go look up the answer in a book or to ask about it a little later. Most frequently, these questions were never answered later." Many times, students take the class textbook home only to have their parents tell them it's a filthy book. Fossland says. What's ironic is that often the parents end up looking through the book. What’s even funnier, quips Fossland, is when Grandma grabs the book for the weekend. Besides the questions on cards, Fossland receives phone calls once in awhile from students with problems. "I get phone calls from students who say. ‘My roommate is having this particular kind of trouble,' and all along I know it’s really him who has the problem." A similar situation often comes up in the classroom. "I sometimes get cards from guys who say, ‘You’re embarrassing the girl sitting next to me.’ I know who I’m really embarrassing." "Human sexual biology is a very enjoyable class for me to teach just because of the reactions I get from students. Really, I'm the luckiest professor in the whole world because I have taken on those areas of biology that I am the most interested in.” Fossland contends that many students who take the class go home and find it easier to communicate with their parents about sex. One girl, after taking the course, told Fossland, "Before I took the course. I used to dread the thought of getting married and all that involvement. Now I’m looking forward to getting married, but I'm not ready to be a pickup either." Fossland says he's had students tell him that they can now talk about any subject in any company without blushing. Fossland introduced the course (130) several years ago. It is traditionally one of the most popular of the General Studies group. 167Nettie A woman with the determination to hold two position and think of them both a full time jobs—that’s Nettie Green. She serves as both Director of Social Activities of Davies Center and Head Resident of Katharine Thomas Hall. Nettie came to Wisconsin 13 years ago from Alabama and began her Eau Claire career as a member of the UWEC Counseling Center. One of her two current jobs—as social activities director, requires a great deal of work but. she says, it allows her to meet people from all facets of life. A major part of Nettie’s job includes greeting all freshmen students at orientation as well as planning the menu and places for all University receptions. “It’s a great deal of work, but I'm repaid in meeting all the different people.” She has been able to meet visiting speakers such as Jack Anderson, Margaret Mead, and Leo Buscaglia. “It’s a joy, not to meet just the celebrities, but also the people who come to the receptions. I find that it is a continuation of education. It’s a kind of learning situation.” Nettie has had some embarrassing moments, like the time she planned a reception for 150 people and 300 people came and expected to eat. ”We had to resort to the ‘Loaves and Fishes’.” However, we'd always rather have the people than the food." "There was another time when I looked down at my feet and saw that I was wearing a pair of shoes, each one a different color, because I had dressed so hurriedly." "Still, there is nothing more satisfying and rewarding than doing my job during the day. then to come home to the warmth and friendliness of a residence hall." Coming home to the students provides Nettie with an "outlet" from her busy schedule. “Students have gone through a social adjustment. They have gone through an activist period to a more subdued period. There arc now students who are more careful in dress and manners. They want to be socially accepted." "I enjoy people and I enjoy living in a residence hail. I have travelled all over the United States, with the exception of the Northwest, but I don't want to live anyplace but Eau Claire. I feel at home here." tea tsm The Misenko s r :') The life of a head resident is I definitely a 24-hour job. says Ruth Misenko. head resident of Oak Ridge • Hall. Her husband, Bob. agrees. This is the third year Ruth has served as head resident of Oak Ridge and she and Bob have found that their privacy is almost non-existent—but they're not complaining! The door to their apartment is always open and dorm residents are 1 welcome to walk in anytime. “If we ever reached the point where we thought the girls coming down to our apartment was an invasion of privacy, it would be time for us to quit." Ruth says. "There is no other wav you can function in this kind of job." One thing the Misenkos can attest [ to is that they have experienced many things others their age have not. ( ‘‘1 used to think there were three places in the dorm where Ruth and 1 could go for privacy—the storage room in the basement, the bathroom, and our bedroom." Bob says. "However, 1 have found that even these three possibilities can be thrown out. We had one occasion where a girl came crawling into our bedroom in the middle of the night to get a key off the nightstand next to our bed." "There are many other things unique to this kind of living." Bob says. "For instance, if the heating goes out. we just call Buildings and Grounds. If there are things around the apartment that need fixing, we call the Housing Office. "I guess in some ways, we haven’t experienced the things that come with off campus living." Bob works as a financial aids counselor and he finds that he never leaves the University environment. "There are times when students come down to our apartment to discus financial aids. I often feel there is no separation between job and after-job." Acting as a head resident brings some uncomfortable incidents to Ruth. She points out that it is especially embarrassing when guys bring their girlfriends back to the dorm and stand in front of one of the apartment windows. "People don’t realize it, but they're practically standing in my living room," says Ruth. "We hear everything from heartbreak fights to propositions." Ruth finds she has one distinct advantage over other women her age—accessibility to babysitters. "I feel good about being here," Ruth says. “It’s nice for me as a mother. When Kai, my two-year-old daughter, was bom. there was even a countdown calendar in the lobby. There aren’t many other couples who can say they’ve had a child and had 300 other people who were sharing the excitement of that event with them." "Kai was bom and has learned to talk here in Oak Ridge." Bob says. "Kai thinks of Oak Ridge as her home, and so do we." « uYi ’1 1, i II 171 Dr. Jim Rice, professor of physical education and former athletic director, says he believes athletics should be open to all types of people who enjoy that kind of educational opportunity. Rice is a graduate of Notre Dame and received his Masters degree from Marquette. Presently Rice teaches courses including health, skiing, golf and the history and philosophy of physical education. While Rice served as athletic director, there were certain areas that were a major concern of his. One of these concerns was with the violation of the liquor ordinance at Carson Park. At one point an inspection, or shake-down. was done to prevent students from bringing liquor into the park. When it was decided to establish the shake-down the question came up of how girls were going to be treated, Rice said. At the first couple of games the system seemed to work very well. “At one of the Homecoming games I was standing at the gate and this girl came through with a coat on and she looked pregnant. 1 thought I wouldn’t embarrass her so 1 let her go through. Later on I saw the young lady in the stands with a six pack in front of her—I finally realized what she had done.” Another concern Rice voiced as athletic director was the abuse of ID’s. "One time a student visiting from another campus tried to get into one of the basketball games with one of the basketball player’s IDs. The minute 1 saw the picture I knew it wasn’t him. I just couldn’t figure out how he thought he could get into the game.’’ Rice recalls that there were some funny incidents that came up while he was participating in high school athletics. "When I was in high school we used to wear sweat suits on the sidelines. Once, before one of the games, one of the substitutes forgot to put his shorts on under his sweat pants. He usually didn't play much, but this game he was called in and when he dropped his bottoms all he had on was his supporter—that brought down the house!” “I have always been very fortunate that every place I’ve been I’ve enjoyed the people. I think that’s so important. It bothers me when people say they’re not happy someplace.” Rice especially enjoys golf and skiing. "Skiing is an area that I feel the family can participate in together." "One thing I’m especially pleased about is that girls are getting more and more involved in athletics," Rice said. "I just hope girls don’t lose sight of the purpose for sports, for I think men may be doing this in some cases. I think athletics are for the student or for the participant. If the main reason becomes public relations then it’s time to start looking at it a little differently. My main concern is the individual and what he or she gets out of it.” 173Dennis Blunk “Starting at center, seven foot .Junior from Shawano, Wisconsin, number 45 . . . Dennis Blunk." If you're a Blugold fan this introduction should sound very familiar! Dennis Blunk is one person on campus almost everyone recognized this year. What made him so outstanding? He's seven feet tall. Dennis or "Artis" (a nickname he's acquired after ballplayer Artis Gilmore) said that there are certain advantages to being tall. For instance. it comes in handy out on the basketball court. "Being tall makes you more noticeable." You aren’t the same as everyone else. At times it’s kind of nice because you seem to meet many new people.” Although there are some advantages to being tall, there are also disadvantages, such as having to duck to go through a doorway. "Like the first time I went through the tunnel; I had a little trouble. Finally, you know where you have to duck and you do it automatically.” One thing Artis has learned to live with are the stares he gets when people see him for the first time. Every year the new freshmen come in and he notes a lot more stares, until people get used to seeing him. Artis’ major is elementary education and he did some student teaching this year. He discovered, while teaching a class of fifth-graders, that the children were especially curious about his height. "The class I was teaching was an exceptionally wild bunch of fifth-graders. The first day I walked in they all went crazy. I decided to let them ask me all the questions they wanted. They asked me what my dog's name was. my mom's name, my girlfriend's name and how tall she was. Then they measured my hands, feet and then got on chairs to measure how tall I was. Each one of them had to have a chance to stand next to me—it was really funny!" He was best known around school this year for his performance on the basketball court. According to Artis, basketball has offered him many things. Two of these have been an interaction with people and the chance to get really close to other members of the team. "I used to be really shy in high school, but basketball has brought me out of that. I’ve also learned that every ball player is out there for a little personal glory, but I think this year it’s really exciting because the team we have is really close and we really play well together. Everyone out there is out to win for the team.” 175Burke One of the first persons student met upon arrival at freshman orientation was Valena Burke, associate dean of students. Nebraska born and bred. Dean Burke did her undergraduate study there but she completed her Masters degree in counseling and guidance in Mankato. Minnesota. Since then she has lived and taught in several states. In 1967 she came to Eau Claire and took the position of associate dean of students. Dean Burke said she definitely likes this part of the country—that being in Eau Claire is like being in "God’s Country." Her main interest is in counseling those students who come in to see her. "I work with students who have social, academic, personal or vocational problems,’’ she said. "I see both men and women students, so I’m kept busy every day." Besides serving as a counselor. Dean Burke acts as adviser to many organizations on campus. Groups she advises include Alpha Lambda Delta, Gold Caps. Professional Women’s Honorary and Panhellenic Council. "I often meet with these student groups at night. I serve as a kind of transition, since every year there are new groups of officers who need help getting acquainted.” she said. Dean Burke is also a member of many administrative committees. Besides this she was instrumental in getting the Day Care Center established on this campus. Dean Burke has worked with students at Eau Claire for several years and she says she has noticed some changes in students since she's been here. "There has been a maturation on the part of the students while I have been here. They are now more concerned about getting a degree and finding a job in that (chosen) area." Dean Burke has also noticed that women are now taking more interest in oreas that were previously considered male-oriented. “When I first came here I couldn't even remember girls trying to get into med school or law school. Now there’s an ever-increasing number of women going into these fields." 177Williams The man behind the faces on the previous pages . . . who is he? A hint—he created those cartoon characters. The Blnndies, who used to appear in the Spectator. He’s Greg Williams (alias Ray Bland). Greg is an art major whose cartooning career began in the first grade. At that time most of his cartoons were stories based on established cartoon characters. “I did cartoons on things I saw on T.V.—like the Three Stooges and Huckleberry Hound.” Greg abandoned cartooning during grade school and did not begin again until he came to Bau Claire. As a freshman, he began drawing editorial cartoons for the SPECTATOR. About the cartoons, he said. “I try to think of a topic that no one else has worked on.” “I don’t want to do things people might have seen somewhere else. I try to be more individual.” The idea for The Blandies came while Greg and a friend were taking a class in Human Sexual Biology. “During class, we'd pass each other notes and write conversations using the little oval figures which later evolved into The Blandies. It seems to me that we thought of the oval shape while we were studying a certain part of the male anatomy, but I’m not sure if there's really a correlation." The first couple of years Greg was doing cartoons for the SPECTATOR hardly anyone said anything about his work or sent in letters to the paper about the cartoons. He tried a different approach. "What I’ve changed is that I’m doing cartoons about campus-oriented things. It affects the students, so they'll either like or dislike my work for that reason." One cartoon that received a great deal of attention and response was a parody involving a little girl, her puppy. and a chainsaw. "There was a really big uproar when I did that cartoon. It was funny in a way and not funny in another way. There were all these letters to the editor saying I probably didn’t have any friends, and that people should stay away from me. It was a strange experience." "There are still people who call me 'sickle' when they see me at lunch." "I really didn't want to do a caricature of myself for the PERISCOPE because I knew people would know my name, but wouldn’t recognize me. While working on the drawing, I'd be looking in the mirror and saying. ‘Is that how I look to other people?' ” "The first time I tried this self-portrait, it ended up looking like another guy in the dorm ... an artist sees himself differently than other people see him."180LIFE—n. vitaljjC essence, animation, energy, spirit, course of life, career, orbit, entity, longevity. Ant., see DEATH. Thumbs up for America “It didn't go off!" Those were the words that Lynette “Squeaky” Fromrae said that day as her assassination attempt on President Ford’s life failed. People wondered if this was an omen for the rest of the Bicentennial year. But at the University Arena, there was little thought about the unfortunate events earlier in the day. Thoughts were diverted to something that in another way was symbolic of the anniversary year . . . something that showed what many people would like to think is the real fabric of America. The occasion was 150 young people gathered in a celebration of life. Up, up with People You meet 'em wherever you go Up. up with People They’re the best kind of folks to know If more People were for People All People everywhere There'd be a lot less People to worry about and a lot more People who care. It's both their song and their theme. It was a feeling in the air that September night as they danced routines to songs including “What Color is God’s Skin?," “Philadelphia Freedom. ’ and "Good Time Neighborhood Band." Clapping along with their upbeat music and mellowing to their ballads, it was easy to get caught up in the spirit of what they were doing. Gooeebumps were in order as they sang an original song of the love between a father and his son. It was like sitting around a campfire and knowing everyone there. It was feeling close to the entire world as members of the company sang about their native lands. It was red, sore hands from clapping during the standing ovation in the packed Arena. It was a “cloud nine" feeling which lingered long after the end of the show. It was a start to Eau Claire's Bicentennial year. Memben of the oudirncr actively participated in the sptnt of the thou1 Student artists, musicians share creativity as seniors Senior recital For many childhood musicians, the word "recital” conjured thoughts of hours of indoor practice when one could be outside—not a very favorable connotation. But for a senior in the music department, it was often something looked forward to—perhaps one of the high points in the college career. The student prepared for the recital by enrolling in Music 486-Senior Recital upon recommendation of hia her applied music instructor. After this, the student chose music for the recital. The student usually wanted a variety of styles of music. Next he she brought it to the teacher who approved it or helped fill gaps in the program. The student planned to fill 45 minutes of time. Although moat students weren’t required to memorize their music, piano students did. For the sake of variety, some students did recitals in duos, trios, or quadruplets. Connie Harding, music student, thought the senior recital worthwhile because it was different from performing with an entire group. “I’m going to be teaching students and here I can prove that I can do what I'm going to be teaching,” she said, "and hopefully the crowd will like it."

This is the art show given by each senior about to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Although the show is given second semester during the student’s senior year, the preparation for it begins junior year when the student brings his her work before a board of faculty members who review it to determine whether or not the student should have a show. Once approved, the student enrolls during the last semester of senior year in Art 495—Individual problems-B.F.A. The course gives the students the tools to put the show together. The student works with art instructor Anders Shaefer, director of Foster Gallery, who explains the gallery functions. Students learn how to hang a show and other aspects of lighting and equipment. The student makes an announcement for the show, usually in the form of a poster and a notice in the Faculty Bulletin, which fulfills another course requirement. At the end of the show, which lasts five days, the student talks to individual art faculty members to get their general reactions to the show.

She carried herself erectly and sedately, gave a bow to the audience and sat dowm stiffly. Silence followed. She looked towards the ceiling and the audience could feel the mood of a concert that would be a stiff, just-for-listening recital. Then her nimble fingers touched the keys of the piano and the illusion was gone. She was Diane Walsh, 24-year-old winner of the Mozart Competition in Salzburg. Austria in 1975. the 1973 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Concert Artists Guild Award, the Chamber Music Prize of the Van Cliburn Competition in Bolzona, Italy and the 1972 San Francisco Symphony Competition, of which the prize included a solo appearance under Seiji Ozawa. Once she started to play, she was in a world of her own. Her movements were graceful, almost effortless. Showing the sensual feeling of her music, she varied between being soft and gentle when the music was light or mellow to short and jerky when the music was choppy or heavy. Beginning her program with the Sonata in A major, K. 331 by Mozart, one of her favorite composers, she became caught up in her music, and only seemed to be aware of the audience at the end of each number. Three numbers later, the audience’s applause beckoned her to return for more. Their applause was answered by two more excellently-executed numbers. Her success came from studies which began at the age of four and led to her graduation from the Juilliard School, where she studied under Irwin Freudlich. Walsh said she spends an average of four hours per day which can vary up to six or seven hours at the piano. Walsh attributes talent and practice to her success. "It's very natural for me to be a musician,” she said. The combination of fine musical ability with graceful motions made one appreciate the skill and form that her art requires. As a result, her performance that Friday night was a thorough mixture of talent and effortless movement which gave the audience a sense of both hearing and feeling the music. —Paula McMartinKansas and Cain • We are Kansas! Kansas is a band!” So proclaims their first album and Kansas backed this claim with a night of high intensity music March 7 at the University Arena. Taped music playing from the monstrous sound system stacked at one end of the Arena seemed to foreshadow a night of loud music. Unfortunately, this observation was true and the excessive volume hurt the first performers. Cain. As for Kansas, volume didn't hinder their music, it's port of their music. Cain, a four-member group from Minneapolis, played music that was bound to leave listeners with an earache. Their set quickly deteriorated into a bombastic interlude of over-amplified guitars and percussion. The vocals, though clear at times, were more often than not blanketed by the noise. However. I've heard Cain in better form. Their music lacked definition that Sunday night due to the heavy amplification and the restricted area. Guitar runs were muddled by the feedback of the surrounding walls. Whether overwhelming the audience with vicious guitars and a screaming violin or soothing them with a quiet synthesizer passage, Kansas commanded the crowd's attention for the entire evening. But they also gave the audience what it expected—an evening of great music by a versatile band. The musical experience of Kansas' members totals more than 50 years and they know how to use it. Steve Walsh, lead singer and keyboard player, controlled the music with his clear vocals and ex-c e 11 e n t playing, Kerry Livgren, doubling on synthesizer and lead guitar, pranced around the stage throwing out guitar licks like fast balls while Rob Steinhardt and his violin kept the action fast and furious. With all this mayhem, the audience often felt as if the stage might shake apart. But with bass player Dave Hope and drummer Phil Ehart setting down a steady beat with help from Rich Willians on rhytm guitar, Kansas never faltered once. Beginning with the proud "Song for America" and continuing through the blinding flashbomb at the end of "Mystery and Mayhem", Kansas sent a message to the audience. As the last chords of "Can I Tell You" died away and Kansas left the stage, the cheering crowd of 1,200 finally understood their message. "We are Kansas! Kansas is a band!" And so they are. One of the best. —John "Beaver" Johnson 187Music for all ages From the opening chord to the grand finale, the audience was captivated by the spirit of the Music Department’s Bicentennial Salute to America—a medley of groups and different kinds of American music. There was rarely a dull moment during the two-and-one half hour concert. The Concert Choir, directed by Morris Hayes, music professor, opened the program with four soulful Negro spirituals. Almost picking their pitches from the air. they sang acapella songs such as the slow, sad “There is a Balm in Gilead" and the dynamic, “Free, My Lord, Free." Part two of the program was the Sentimental Age. Although the seemingly repititious arrangement of "Listen to the Mockingbird" seemed to drag, the spirit was recaptured with the Concert Choir's “Some Folks." A sprinkling of "hammed up" choreography and individual solos added variety and animation to the program. Student Jim Rauscher took the audience back to the Gay Nineties (the third part of the program) with several ragtime piano numbers. Then "Four of a Kind", a barbershop quartet, took the stage and treated listeners to traditional four-part harmony sprinkled with very old jokes. One of their numbers was the Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer theme song. Continuing in this era. an old "city band" marched to the stage in strict rhythm and performed a “Concert in the Park." The program included everything from Broadway tunes to patriotic melodies. Intermission spanned 30 years and at its end, a Dixieland band consisting of music faculty and community citizens played the tunes of the Twenties. This included a blues salute to the late Louis Armstrong. "Twentiana," a medley of popular songs of this time period was done by the Blugold Singers and spiced with polished choreography. The pace changed with the fifth part of the program. The audience listened to moving selections from "Porgy and Bess.” Faculty members Beverly Dick and Richard Johnson soloed. The Blugold Singers returned with the Thirties and familiar songs such as “Singin' in the Rain," "Hi Lili, Hi Lo" and “Over the Rainbow." The Jazz ensemble took over with "The Big Band Montage" and “Those were the Days." They also performed music professor Dominic Spera’s “Disneyland Fantasy." a medley of songs from the animated motion picture, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” The program ended with the combined talents of the Jazz Ensemble, Concert Choir and Blugold Singers, leaving the audience high on melodies—the music of many generations ringing in their ears. —Connie HutchisonThe old "city band " conksting of music faculty members and Eau Clairr citisens. performed dixieland jaxi for the Bicentennial Salute Included in their program was a musical tribute to the late Louis Armstrong The barbershop quartet, "Four of a Kind." performed several times during the year including at the Homecoming Varsity Show and the Bicentennial Salute Members (from left) are Bill Burch. Steve La Rocco. Mike Treske and Tom Allen The Music Department had another active year. There were nearly 500 students who were working toward majors and minors in music. Student musical groups held about 25 major concert this year. Two were held by The Oratorio Choir, directed by Morris Hayes; the Women’s Glee Club, directed by Professor Richard Johnson and Marley Muilenburg; Symphony Band, directed by Dr. Donald George; and Orchestra, directed by Dr. Rupert Hohlman. Concert Bands I and II, under the direction of Rodney Hudson, also exhibited their talents before UWEC audiences twice this year while The Statesmen, directed by Hayes, performed three times in Eau Claire. Dominic Spera's Jazz Ensembles I, II, and III appeared six times this year while the Concert Choir and Blugold Singers each appeared two times. Besides these groups, students participated in the Blugold marching band and pep band. Many of them took part in musicals, and a few of the musical groups went on tour for some of their performances.Savino While his ambition and energy are to be admired. Jo Savino would do well to recognize the limits of his small company and take on works according to the talent and ability of the group. The February 11 performance of the Jo Savino Ballet International for the University Artists Series was that of a small company trying to accomplish big things—and only partially succeeding. Snvino. a St. Paul native, founded the Classical Ballet Academy in December 1971. In its short history, it has staged fairly extensive classical works. The company, bound by limited finances and few professional dancers, consists of four professionals including Savino. The balance of the company consists of Savino’s students. In their performance here, the dancers showed a varied repertoire and displayed their range of talent and experience. Savino's choreographed version of Tchaikovsky's 20-minute Fantasy Overture. “Romeo and Juliet" is meant to portray only highlights of Shakespeare's play. I would protest anyone's efforts to condense a work of that magnitude into such a brief overture. While Sarah Napier brought the feelings of shyness and fearful longing to the role of Juliet. Norbert Erben (Romeo) danced through his role without emotion or the vitality usually associated with a youth of Romeo's age. The next work. “Biosphera." was choreographed by Arthur Mitchell of the Dance Theater of Harlem. The work was a symmetrical study in line interspersed with occasional "sight gags"—a wiggling fort or a sudden limpness of the body. Performed by Jo Savino and Catherine Prior, it was well-done—a successful attempt to expand the company’s repertoire. Both Savino and Prior are experienced dancers. Based on Russian folktales, the closing number. "Firebird." was choreographed for the company by European Boris Tanin in 1974. A showy piece. "Firebird" used bright, glittery costumes and a full complement of dancers—including students, whose inexperience showed. They lacked precision and cohesiveness needed to work as a group. The company has changed and grown since its last visit to Eau Claire in the summer of 1973. —Mar Hard Hr I nun ink I The above i o taken by court c»y « the Spectator I rum the February 19. 1976 u u .) 190I I For a few hours every Friday and Saturday night, a small portion of the University underwent a transformation. Many of the people who went there found an escape from the pressures of weekly student life; the mood was set: flickering candlelight cast soft shadows on the checkered tablecloths and the air was filled with quiet, relaxed conversation. Then the music started and a small, sometimes forgotten comer of the Blugold Room came to life. It was show time at the Cabin Cafe. By day the Cabin served as a discussion center, lunchroom and rest stop, but at night it became the stage for student entertainers as well as National Coffee House Circuit performers. The student entertainer program was directed by a sub-committee of the Student Senate Social Commission. All prospective UWEC student entertainers were auditioned by the committee and received $5 per set. The commission also hired outside performers, Jim Oberholtzer, Social Commission chairperson, said. These performers were paid a slightly higher fee. Entertainers were chosen on their talent capability as well as their ability to hold audience attention for the 45-minute set. Oberholtzer said the performers did not limit themselves to singing, and the Cabin sponsored acta such as a Mark Twain impressionist and a barbershop quartet. Week-long entertainment, put on several times a year, was the effort of the National Coffee House Circuit. The regional circuit consists of about 22 schools in Wisconsin. Michigan, South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. The schools pay a membership fee, as do the participating entertainers, according to Duane Hambleton, associate director of UWEC student activities and regional coordinator of the circuit. “The purpose of the circuit is to provide an outlet for new, unexposed. but skilled talent,” Hambleton said. "It’s for schools interested in low-budget, quality entertainment." Hambleton said the fee was consistent for performers within each regional circuit—$175 for a single act on a six-day basis and an additional $100 for every extra performer in the act. Lodging and meals were also provided by the individual campuses. A few of the circuit acts have gone on to professional careers. Hambleton said that Brewer and Shipley began on the circuit and John Denver touched on circuit work before going into professional work. Calvin and Borhstein, a National Coffee House Circuit act, played to full houses every night at the Cabin during the week of January 26 through 31. Originally from New York, the two musicians have been together for a year and a half. Labeling their music as folk jazz, Jason Calvin and Eric Bomstein treated the audience to crisp harmonies, intriguing instrumentals and creative, expressionistic lyrics. Both Calvin and Bomstein write their own music, besides performing their own versions of Graham Nash, Cat Stevens and their sound-alikes—Seals and Crofts. Calvin and Bomstein delivered a very polished, very stylized act that held the capacity audiences spellbound. In addition to their writing ability, Calvin and Bomstein displayed adept musical talents—Calvin on keyboards and recorder and Bomstein alternating between six and twelve string guitars. The entertainment provided at the Cabin was free, under the sponsorship of the Social Commission. Jason Calvin and Eric Bomstein, a National Cof rt House Circuit act, performed in the Cabin the last u-eek of January Playing and singing their own music, each of them used several instruments in their act Good times on a college budgetUWEC brings USO to GIs Imagine you’re overseas, far from home, wearing the uniform of your country. Imagine that this will be one of the most pleasant times you’ve had in a long while. That’s what you had to do to fully realize what the nine performers of the USO tour group were doing at Kjer Theater December 4 through 13. The UWEC tour group had done 41 shows on American military bases in Europe by last October before coming back to show their act to the people of Eau Claire. The show consisted of a collection of popular songs and dances such as a Beatles medley, Broadway tunes and short comical sketches. The program included "Where is Love?”, "So Far Away", “Hey Big Spender", and "Walk Him Up." Members of the group were performers Julie Peterman. Pat O'Brien, Steve Berendes, Brad Meyers. Linda Booton and Becky Miller and musicians Sue Anderson, Bob Gibson and Glenn Worf. Dr. Wil Denson, assistant professor of speech, directed. In their Eau Claire performances, the group showed that entertaining GIs was their goal The types of jokes—low humor directed at certain groups and types of people—and the carefully-picked, well-known tunes pointed to this. The show carried a variety of moods and was keyed to a general audience. From the diversity of elements in the show, it appeared that it was aimed at a cross-section of people from all areas of the United States. While the Eau Claire audience was not a group of GIs, a bit of imagination and a sense of humor made it appealing and entertaining although somewhat less sophisticated than many may have been used to. The nine performers—some of them Eau Claire students—and Dr. Denson left Eau Claire last August for their first performance in the Azores. The United States Army supplied sound equipment there and at each base they toured; the group provided their own costuming and lighting, according to Denson. Following the performance in the Azores, they gave 37 shows in Germany during the next seven weeks. After the week in Eau Claire. Wisconsin performances at Mellen, Mon-dovi, Osceola, Blair. Thorp. Merrill, Athens. Columbus, and Eau Claire Memorial High Schools made up the rest of the year’s schedule. Denson described the USO show as a cross between a musical review and a variety show. Actor Pat O'Bnen donned one of the many costume piece the cast used for the review 193The two-week Foster Gallery show by art professors John Lawler and William Pearson took a different twist. It ended with a mock funeral staged by Lawler in which he buried a pipe in an ornate wooden casket which he hand-crafted especially for the show. The event, “Passing of the Pipe,” was meant to be a parody on the custom of funerals. “I want people to think about and re-evaluate what dead people actually are,” Lawler said. “This barbaric custom is a waste of money and land and is of no benefit to the dead person.” The funeral was complete with solemn faces, mournful dress and a requiem. Following the burial, three students performed a modem dance to the music of Bela Bartok. Many of the 125 people who attended were from media. Pearson’s part of the show included several lithographic prints—most of which had wieners as a subject. Two of his prints, “Homage to Ward-Louisana Exhibit” and “Wieners 15 (Build Your Own)” are shown at right and far 194 right.Vienna Choir Boys Innocence . . . the word that rightly describes the feeling of that crisp and clear December evening. The innocence of the upcoming holiday season, the innocence of young male voices blending under the direction of a talented young musician. That describes the Vienna Choir Boys. Simplicity was intertwined with the innocence. The Hansel and Gretel skit showed that. A few changes here and there made the obviously amateur performance enjoyable to watch. The Choir used imagination with the simplicity to make the skit a memorable experience. The innocence and that simplicity was really brought forth by the singing that made the Choir famous. Those clear, young voices filled many of the people sitting in the Arena with the holiday spirit. The Vienna Choir Boys did in Eau Claire what they've been doing around the world for more than a century—spreading goodwill. —Betty Tapendorf 196 Melissa Manchester and Orleans October 19. 1975 Waiting . . . anxiety the arena finally darkens spotlights on music . . .

This joint production of the departments of speech and music provided a comedy which played February 13 through 21. The dinner in the Flambeau Inn of Davies Center featured cuisine from Mesopotamia—offering an exotic repast to put the audience in the mood for the musical. A fairy tale of romance, the musical's leading parts consisted of: the Wazir, played by Frank L. Csuti; the poet, played by Mark Monroe; his daughter, Nancy Connor; the Pasha, Bruce Bradley; and the Caliph, Jeff Potter. Providing the audience with their night in Baghdad were directors Kenneth Scheffel and Rupert Hohmann, music department professors and David N. Morgan, associate professor in the speech department.

About 6,000 issues were printed twice each semester and were distributed free throughout the campus. Selection of material was based on its quality compared to other work submitted. "Some issues we’ll get considerably more than others," Editor Kirk Lindsay said, "but that doesn't mean it’s considerably better." NOTA’s staff structure and selection processes were casual and loosely organized. "It’s loose because we only have two issues a semester and all we have to do is read what comes in and place some ads." Lindsay said. Staff membership was open to all UWEC students interested in the creative arts. Early each semester, many new people joined and then dropped out. "Maybe their only background is that they like to read Rod McKuen and Snoopy poems,” Dave Johnson, former editor, said of those who quit. NOTA often got new staff members from writers whose work had appeared in the publication. Johnson said people who write make the best staffers.

Ant., see DEATH.Kurth’s ideal: student Interest Dr. Stephen J. Kurth was appointed director of athletics at UWEC this past June following the resignation of Dr. James Rice. The 36-year-old Kurth is an Eau Claire native and graduate of Regis High School. He joined the University staff in 1968 after receiving his PhD in physical education from the University of Oregon. Kurth received a BA in Education from UWEC in 1961. While attending school here, he participated in both basketball and football and won All-Conference honors in the latter. While an assistant professor here, Kurth was also employed as assistant football coach and Junior Varsity basketball coach. During his Eau Claire coaching career he has tutored seven all conference linemen in football and has compiled a 51-27 record in Junior Varsity basketball. As new athletic director. Kurth does not see himself making any immediate basic changes. But he would like to focus on "seeking out the interests of various groups that involve Eau Claire athletics.” The athletics program, he believes, should be geared to the interests of the student, the student-athlete, the city, and the state. Kurth sees some changes in state school athletics. Several schools in the state have switched affiliations from the NAIA to the NCAA lately, but Kurth does not foresee this switch for Eau Claire. "The NAIA is more closely aligned to the athletic situation at UWEC.” he says. Another current topic of discussion by athletic directors is a “letter of intent policy." This would require an athlete in the state system to sign a letter stating that he intends to enroll in a particular school and that he'll participate in a certain sport there. Once he signed, the student would be legally bound to attend that school. Kurth thinks it would be foolish to adopt this rule when the schools are not allowed to offer scholarships. "A letter of intent would restrict us more than help us recruit student athletes to Eau Claire." he says. Kurth also believes UWEC’s enrollment ceiling hurts recruting because it puts a time limit on it. but he admits that it has its good side. too. “I think Eau Claire is a great place to go to school and we can look at the ceiling as a plus—maybe we’ll get more qualified students." Last year, the athletic department considered cutting men’s golf, baseball and wrestling. This year, these sports are back and Kurth says. "These sports were not cut because we would like to offer an athletic program which is as close to ideal as possible.” Kurth’s main concern is that Eau Claire athletes be able to compete with members of the state conference in all sports offered. "If we can’t compete with these schools for any of various reasons, we may have to cut back on certain sports in the future." Another of Kurth’s objectives is to see all sports generate as much interest here as basketball does. “I assure you that if Eau Claire won more football games, you would find more people coming to the games and this is true of all sports.” Kurth sums up his outlook on his new job: “I guess I’m an idealist." » 2 What does the life of a typical Eau Claire athlete consist of? Is it full of the guts and glory that many of us traditionally think? How does he live from day to day and what occupies his mind? A member of the PERISCOPE staff interviewed popular Killer “Jim” Bushleague in an attempt to find answers to some of these questions. The following is an exerpt of the exclusive interview. (Recorded January 1976 somewhere on the Eau Claire cam put.) PERISCOPE: Well. Jim . . . uh. I can call you Jim. can’t I? JIM: Yeah, sure ... all my buddies do. P: OK. I suppose we should start at the beginning. Why did you decide to go to UWEC? J: I’ll tell you. Eau Claire has so many good things to offer . . . the beautiful campus, the night life, pretty girls, but I guess what really nailed down my decision was when I heard there was free pool and bowling at Hilltop during registration week. A guy can really get in a workout, ya know? P: Well. I suppose so. Tell me Jim. what sports have you excelled in during your college years?J: Well, I've done pretty well in football and baseball. P: 'Any particularly memorable moment you'd like to tell us about? What's the one thing that stand above all the rest as you look back on your athletic career here at Eau Claire? J: That’s easy. My left forefinger. P: Your left forefinger? J: Broke the_______ing thing back in '72 against the Blue Devils . . . been crooked ever since. See how it kinda stands up when I . . . P: Yes. yes . . . ah. anything else? J: I suppose the doubleheader at Oshkosh my sophomore year would be in there somplace. P: 'Must have been a good game. Could you elaborate? J: Can I what? P: Ah . . . tell us more of what happened. J: Oh . , . sure! It all started with those pimento sandwiches 1 ate on the way to the game. There's a few things I didn't know about eating pimento sandwiches on a warm bus. Anyway. I ate my fill, took a short nap and when I woke up. we were there. Well, during warm-ups, strange things began to happen inside my stomach . . . P: I’ll bet you felt pretty bad. J: Bad? It was like a volcano. I bent over . . . very carefully . . . laid my glove down, and started running toward the can so I’d be back for the start of the game. Well. sir. that was my first mistake. P: Did you mis anything? J: I sure as hell did . . . spent the better part of the first inning trying to get myself cleaned up . . . couldn't get my damn belt undone fast enough. It was awful. P: That's a pretty memorable experience ... I’d have to admit it. Ah. tell me Jim. you were a high school star . . . what’s the biggest difference between high school and college football? J: I’d have to say the laces. College footballs have . . . P: No. no. 1 mean the actual football program . J: Oh. the programs—why didn’t you say so? Well in college they put more stuff in ’em . . . like heights, weights, hometowns, records . . . you know, they're more complete. P: Yes. well, maybe we should go to another question. J: Sure. P: Now this is something a lot of people wonder about. Just what, exactly, goes on the huddle? J: Mostly swearing. Actually, for me it was a place to meet new friends. P: Isn't the huddle supposed to be a place for serious business? J: Well, it is . . . sorta ... at least until we’re sure everyone has a girl for after the game. P: Do your "girls" usually know much about football? J: Not really. Most of ’em don’t even know what to look for. P: How’s that? J: Well, instead of following the ball or maybe the guy’s number. I’ve been told that they’d rather look at his rear end . . . but I guess everyone has their own way of keeping score. P: That’s interesting . . . well, Jim. what do you do during the off seasons? J: Mostly hide from coaches. No, personally. I play lots of basketball to keep in shape. P: You haven't mentioned much about studies. Jim. Has you involvement in athletics ever had any bad effects on your grades? J: Nah, never. You see. as an athlete. I’m taught to use something called "self-discipline" both on and off the field. It's not easy ... but it works. P: How does it work for you? J: Well, I make absolutely sure that I set aside 15 minutes every day for studies and that way I keep my nose clean. P: That’s good to hear. Thank you for your time. Jim. Td just like to ask one more question before leaving. Do you have any plans for the future? J: Nothing much for right now. You see. I'll be in school here for two more years even though my eligibility has run out. I still have a few credits to pick up. P: Sounds like a long time to be in school? J: Aw . . . it’s not too bad. Besides, most of my buddies will be right here with me. P: Well, good luck Jim ... it was nice talking to you. J: Yeah . . . anytime. 204FOOTBALL 75: Not what it could have been Coach Link Walker best summarized the 1975 Blugold football season when he call it "a year of frustration.” The season was touted to be a good one. even though there were only 18 returning lettermen and 5 seniors. A large number of transfers and one of the most prolific recruiting years ever aroused hopes for the best Blugold team since the 1964 championship squad. The high pre-season expectations never did materialize, however. Unpredictable injuries plagued the gridders who ended with an overall record of 4-6 and a 3-5 conference mark. The season got off to a good start with a 34-6 win over an outmanned Northland College team. The defense limited Northland to just 154 total yards. Coach Walker got a good look at all of his younger players, but lost veteran center Hick Ostrom for the season and quarterback Noel Carlson for two weeks with injuries. The Blugolds played their "finest game of the year” according to Walker, in their 7-0 loss to Hillsdale College of Michigan. The defensive struggle accounted for 130 total yards by Eau Claire and 239 total yards by Hillsdale. The Blugold defense held the Chargers to only 14 first downs and forced them to punt 7 times. Hillsdale had a reputation as a small school power and has compiled a 50-18-1 record over the last seven years. Several Hillsdale players have been drafted by the Pros including Chester Marcol of Green Bay. Warren Spraag of Los Angeles and UW-Stevens point Coach Monte Charles. Coaches If ill Yeagle and l.tnk Walker had nothing to smile about during many of the Blugold games this past fall. Injuries plagued the team, five starters uere lost during the seasonThe third name of the season saw the Blugolds defeat Oshkosh 21 14 in their conference opener. The 'Golds trailed 14 7 with 1:54 left in the game when junior quarterback Steve Krueger hit receiver Phil Zahorik with a 52 yard touchdown pass. Jeff Healy then picked up a Titan fumble with 11 seconds left, and ran 32 yards for the final score. Again it was the defense, led by Healy, Dave Bielmeier and Mark Hauser, who came up with the big plays. They held Oshkosh to only 105 yards rushing in 40 attempts. The offense got untracked in the fourth game against Superior with the return of quarterback Carlson. The University of Dartmouth transfer led the 17-0 victory with 259 total yards, including a school record 88 yard touchdown to Zahorik. Carlson's total offense output of 259 yards placed him in a category with Jim Van Gorden and Tom Bauer, who gained more than 250 yards in one game. The defense came up with another exceptional game holding Superior to 101 total yards—the second best effort in Blugold history. The 1971 team held Stevens Point to 82 yards total offense. With a 3-1 record and a 2-0 conference mark, the Blugolds traveled to Stevens Point for what Coach Walker termed, "the turning point of the season." The previously unyielding defense allowed five touchdowns and the Pointers broke a 17-16 halftime edge into a 38-22 route. The offense gained 344 yards but was hurt by four interceptions. They had the ball intercepted at Point's 31 and 1 yard lines as well as in the end zone. Another blow came when it was learned that Zahorik broke his hand and would be out for most of the season. For Homecoming on October 11, nationally-ranked River Falls provided the competition. The Blugolds played the Falcons almost even for three quarters, trailing 13-0. In the fourth period, however. River Falls showed their conference-leading form and scored twice to win 27-0. It was a punishing rushing attack that beat the Blugolds as River Falls gained 339 yards on the ground. The offense went into another slump and managed only 164 yards - only 22 of those from passing. Game seven against conference co-leader Whitewater was played without the services of five starters. The injury-plagued Blugolds managed only 113 yards and were shutout for the second game in a row, 17-0. The Warhawks jumped out to a 10-0 lead at half, then hung on to deal the Blugolds their third loss in a row. More injuries hurt the team as guard No matter what tacticsthey used. the Blugolds were unable to stop the Falcons of River Falls They beat the Blugolds 27-0 in the Homecoming bout. 206 John Dowell was lost for the season and danker Dan Lynch was also sidelined. Last place Platteville invaded Carson Park for game eight and the Blugolds responded by snapping their three game loosing streak 26-21. The offense turned in 166 yards rushing and two touchdowns themselves. The defense also tied a school record by intercepting six Pioneer passes; Hauser and Craig Hinke got two each. There were 10 fumbles, 8 interceptions, and 14 penalties. The Blugolds managed to break the game open with 19 points in the second quarter. They led 26-7 before Platteville scored twice in the final six minutes of the game. The win left Eau Claire with a 3-3 conference record and 4-4 overall. The Blugolds traveled to Stout for their next game and the two teams squared off for their 53rd battle in the histories of the schools. Coach Walker lost his first game to Stout as a Blugold head coach. 38-14. The Blugolds were pushed around for 379 yards and the 38 points was a season high by an opponent. The loss meant the team needed an upset win over La Crosse, in the season final, to break even with a .600 season. The Indians, who came into the game sharing the conference title, started fast against the injury-riddled Blugolds. They led 21-0 at the half and had to hold back a gutsy team of Blugold reserves for a 21-13 win. Five Blugolds played their final game as seniors: Bielmeier, Healy, Hinke. Hauser, and Steve Martin. The loss ended the frustrating season and the string of injuries was finally over. This umn't the first time a Blugold fell to one of the nationally ranked Falcon an October II The Falcons gained 339yard on the ground that afternoon Coach Walker said that injuries were the main downfall of the team this year and statistics tend to prove him correct. Since the first game, the Blugolds lost starters Ostrum, Mark Sabin, Dowell, Steve Heinricks and Martin for the season. Injuries also forced other starters Carlson, Zahorik, Reed Welsh. Healy, Bruce Pohlmann and Bielmeier to miss games. The Blugolds failed to land any players on the all-conference squad but six of them were given honorable mention. Tight end Welsh, guard Dowell, split end Zahorik, middle guard Bielmeier, comerback Hinke and safety Hauser were honored by the conference coaches. Bielmeier, a senior from Wautoma, was chosen as the Blugold most valuable player by his teammates. His season total of 106 tackles ranks second in Blugold history to Len Luedke’s total of 127 last year. Walker considered Bielmeier one of the best defensive lineman in the conference. He cited hi9 strength and mental attitude as keys to his success. Walker is looking forward to next year when the team will return all starters on offense and six on defense. “The offense will have more experience but we'll have to bolster our defense a bit," he said. Walker also said the team will definitely miss seniors Bielmeier, Hauser. Hinke, Martin and Healy-calling them “a fine bunch of young men who always did their best." Member of the Blugold defense made on energetic, though fruitless attempt to stop the Falcons' powerful offense 208Rou 1: Dove Bielmeter (76). Sieve Martin (34). Mike Salter (17). Craig Hinke (10).

Senior Don Schroeder and freshman Todd Herbert led the squad to a fifth place finish in the conference tilt and only two points out of third place. The Blugolds started the season with six returning lettermen and built around a few freshmen to come up with their best team ever. The high point for Coach Keith Daniels' harriers was a first place finish in the 10 team Oshkosh Invitational. The team had seven runners better the time of 21:38, while at last year's meet only three runners beat that time. Two weeks later the squad finished second in a six team meet at Stevens Point. Manitowoc freshman Herbert recorded the fastest 5-mile time in Eau Claire history with a 25:28 clocking. The previous record was by teammate Schroeder who posted a 25:45 last year. Schroeder. last season’s MVP, came on strong toward the end of the year after Herbert had led the team most of the way. Schroeder finished 11th in the conference meet and 9th in the District 14 meet, while Herbert finished 16th and Uth respectively. The fifth place conference finish was the best ever by a Blugold squad while the performances of Schroeder and Herbert were the two top finishes ever by a Blugold. Both runners qualified for the Nationals at Salina, Kansas. Schroeder finished his career at Eau Claire by placing 52nd in a field of 400. Herbert finished only 15 seconds behind, but placed 114th. Other top runners for the team this year included senior Dennis Brooks, juniors Dnn Brunoau and Tim LeGene. sophomore Kevin Baker and freshman John Stintzi, Carl Rasmussen, K. C. Brooks and Bill Burch. With only two graduating seniors on the team, next year should be just as productive for the Blugolds. The team, however, will miss Schroeder. 210Swimmers No. 4 in nation An undefeated dual record, a fifth consecutive conference title and a fourth place finish in the nationals is what the IJWEC swim team nc-mnplishcd this year. Coach Tom Prior, physical education instructor, started his seventh season at Kau Claire with a squad of 30 swimmers and 8 divers in-eluding 17 letter winners. His goals were to win an unprecedented fifth straight conference title and to place among the top 10 teams in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) nationals. Both goals were reached with exceptional results and Prior was rewarded hy being chosen the NAIA coach of the year. During the season the Blugolds compiled n 9-0 dual record that included wins Over Southwest Minnesota, Northwestern. Mankato State. Stout and Hamline University. The team’s second meet of the year was the Big Ten Relays in which UWEC finished third behind Wisconsin and Illinois. After a couple of dual wins, the Blugolds captured their fourth straight title in the Minnesota Relays. Behind eight first place finishes and six meet records the team totaled l6-r» points to 138 for runner-up University of Minnesota. As if one state title wasn’t enough, the team came out six days later and won the Wisconsin State Championship with ease. The Blugolds won 11 of the 12 events and set 10 meet records in the process. After a month-long layoff for Christmas break the team began to peak for the second half of their season. After an impressive performance in the Stout Blue Devil Invitational and six straight dual wins the swimmers were ready for the conference and national meets. Ruti I: Donna Hindi. Undo Shelley.

Coming off with a dismal 1-14-1 record last year, the Blugolds managed o 3-11-1 mark in 1976. They also moved up a notch in the conference meet from ninth to eighth place. Coach Brian Hurtgen had problems all year fitting his wrestlers into all the weight classes. He often had to spot his opponent 12 to 24 points due to forfeits. There were a few bright moments, however, most of which were led by junior Bill Hinkens from Cudahy. The 1975 Most Valuable Player and honorary co-captain, Hinkens led the team in the winning percentage and was the only Blugold to win a conference championship. Hinkens won the 142 pound class in the conference meet and then moved on to the national finals in Edinboro, PA. Other bright moments came from the performances of freshmen Ron Seubert at 150 pounds and Joel Klensch at 190 pounds. Junior Bill Ross also performed well at 158, 150, 142, and 134 pounds. The three Blugold victories came over Carlton College (31-12), Stout (29-26), and St. Mary (30-15). The team also finished sixth in an eight-team tournament held at Northland College. The eighth place conference finish allowed the Blugolds to escape from their last place hold in the standings. The Blugold urmtlen hotted thu year’s can-ferrnee meet in the Arena.

Fred Kolb assistant professor of economics, coaches the club, which is one of the l est in the state. I ist year the club became a student organization for the first time. This year the name was changed to UWBC Blugolds and the team joined the Wisconsin State Hockey Association. The club now plays schools like Marquette. Stevens Point. LaCrosse. Platteviile, Lawrence and St. Norbert. The 1978 squad posted a 7-1 conference record and won first place in a tournament held at Lakeland College. IahI by Madison transfer John Kislia. the Blugolds competed in the conference playoffs in Appleton where they finished in third place. Kolb said that problems with lack of ice hurt the program this year and that hockey will never become a varsity sport at Eau Claire until better ice facilities are provided. Out of the 8 scheduled home games this year only 2 were played due to lack of ice. Superior, Stout. Stevens. Point and River Falls all have varsity hockey and the addition of one more team would make it a conference sport. Either Whitewater or Eau Claire will he the next school with varsity hockey and Kolb hopes the new addition to the conference will be wearing blue and gold uniforms. Skiing In the year of the Olympics and with memories of the giant slalom and the downhill race still fresh in our minds, it’s an appropriate time to l«s)k at UWEC’s ski team. Dr. Lawrence Ozzello, head of the Accountancy Department, has coached the team which is in its fifth year here. The team participates in the Midwest Collegiate Ski Association which is composed of 88 teams from nil over the nation. Skiing is not a varsity sport here. Expenses have been paid by the skiers, who numbered 43 this year. The team had to abide by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules because the team raced against NCAA schools. Ozzello said it wouldn't pay to join NCAA, because of the size and nature of the athletic program here. Row I Jell Aym, Steu (I’mt w, Trrry McMahon. Steve Koepp. Row 2: Ren Wanner. Carolyn Kelly.

However he is currently working to form a Wisconsin Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (WAIA) affiliation for next year. This year's men’s team was led by Steve Greves and brothers Mike and Dave Bacharach. Eau Claire won the Wisconsin Governors Cup as the best team in the state and also the Minnesota Cup its the best team in Wisconsin and Minnesota. During the year the team finished first eight times. The highlight of the season was a third place finish in the NCAA trials, where the top 10 teams in the Midwest competed. The women’s team was led by captain Kathy Wierdsmn; the entire team will return next year. During the season they finished fourth seven times, fifth once, and seventh once. Eau Claire competed against teams such as UW-Madison, Northwestern University. Michigan State, University of Michigan and Notre Dame. Ozzello said that being a small school and beating teams like these gave skiing a good chance of soon becoming a varsity-supported sport. 216Team wins con£erence title; loses trip to Kansas City The UWEC basketball team regained the conference championship this year after a one year layoff. It was the sixth conference title in the past seven years for Coach Ken Anderson's charges and the first outright championship by any team since 1972. The Blugolds finished the season with a 14-2 conference record and a 24-2 overall to go along with their number six national ranking. But at tournament time, they came within one point and one game of making it to the national finals in Kansas City. MO. Anderson started the season with seven-foot Dennis Blunk nt center. Charlie Novak and Ken Kaiser as forwards and Tim Valentvn and Guy Kossato as guards. The team opened at home against Milton and outshot the Redmen in a 96 - 80 game. Valcn-tyn led the Blugold scorers with 18 points while Novak and Kaiser had 16 points each. Kaiser led both teams with 13 rebounds.

The conference opener with River Fall followed the tournament and the home crowd saw disaster. Playing without Blunk who was out due to illness, the Blugolds couldn't get unt racked and lost to the Falcons 98-93 in triple overtime. Five Blugold players fouled out before it was over and the team had to play with four guards during much of the final overtime. Kaiser managed to stay in the game and score 31 points. Rossato and Novak had 18 and 14 respectively in their limited time of duty. The lone bright spot was the play of reserve .leff Lund who came off the bench and did a good job of shooting and passing the ball. With Blunk back in the lineup, the team rebounded from its loss to River Falls and beat LaCrosse 63-61. With Rossato sidelined with knee problems, Lund started at guard and led the Blugolds in scoring with 16 points. Charlie Novak also played well adding 10 points and 15 rebounds. Following the LaCrosse game, the Blugolds took a month-long break from conference action and played three straight non-conference games. The first was a 96-51 bombing of Duluth. Five players scored in double figures for Eau Claire, led bv Kaiser’s 18. Next they squeezed by a tough Winona State team 66-65 at Minnesota.

The old records were 55 and 125. Blunk and Kaiser were named to the All-Tournament team and Kaiser was chosen the tournament's most valuable player. Teammate Valentyn won the Hustle Award and Lund made the second team. The final two non-conference games came next for the Blugolds against Green Bay and St. Cloud. The team played one of their best games of the season against Green Bay and avenged a tournament loss two years ago by downing the Phoenix 70-57.

Stevens Point proved surprising and gave the sixth ranked team in the coin try a scare before the Blugolds pulled out a 61-56 victory. High scoring Blunk was held to only eight points but Ken Kaiser and Charlie Novak picked up the slack with 20 and 15 respectively.

Eau Claire Memorial alumnus Jeff Greig came off the bench to spark a pair of victories over Superior and River Falls in games 18 and 19. It was an easy night against Superior as Kau Claire won 83-57. They had another off night in their rematch with River Falls but defeated their only previous conqueror 82-75. The Falcons led by 17 points at the half before Greig led the Eau Claire comeback. Whitewater was the next stop for the blue and gold machine but mechanical breakdowns resulted in their record loss of the season. Gerald Coleman threw in 32 points for Whitewater as they topped the Blugolds 87-74. Poor free throw shooting and 17 turnovers hurt the team in the game. Refusing to lose two in a row.

Crucial victories over Stevens Point and Oshkosh allowed the Blugolds to remain in a first place tie with taCroeise. Rossato filled in again for Valentyn and responded with a game high 18 points against Stevens Point. Blunk had 25 points and nine rebounds in the Saturday afternoon sleeper against Oshkosh. Both games were a bit sluggish as the Blugolds couldn't pull away from either team until the final minute. With their sights set on a showdown with LaCrosse in the last game of the season, the Blugolds swept the season series with Stout for the first time in four years. The home crowd watched the Blue Devils battle Eau Claire to the wire before conceding 54-50. Almost everyone was looking past the second-to-last game of the season to the final against LaCrosse. The Blugolds remembered the game r.„ ■ in lime however and outshot Superior 98-30. The victory set the stage for the Eau Claire-l,aCrosse game to decide the conference champion. Coming into the game with a 23-2 record, the Blugolds hoped to regain the title they lost to Platteville last year. A capacity crowd watched as Eau Claire jumper! out to an early lead and held the Indians off 61-55 for the championship. They built up n 42-30 lead early in the second half but LaCrosse fought hack to 56-55 with 2:34 remaining in the game. The Blugolds then stalled out the clock to end LaCrone'ft hopes. Again it was Blunk who rose to the occasion and had 22 points and 14 rebounds. Going into post-season tournament action Blunk was the team’s leading scorer with a 16.5 average followed by Ken Kaiser and .left Lund. Novak, at 6 5" was the leading rebounder in the conference while Lund led the team in assists. Kaiser and Blunk were both selected to the all-conference team while Valentyn and Novak received honorable mention. With tournament fever running high in Eau Claire, the Blugolds disposed of out-manned Carthage College 71-59 in the first game of the plav-ofTs. Blunk and Kaiser continually got open inside and the Blugold height was too much for the smaller Carthage team. Kenosha, W’l was the site for the State shootout between powerhouses Eau Claire and t’W-Parkside. The stakes were a trip to the national finnls in Kansas City and a final high rating in the national poll. Parkside. playing without high scoring forward Leartha Scott, jumped out to an early lead behind an incredible 60 percent shooting from the floor. The Blugolds trailed by 13 points at half but came back battling in the second half. With Parkside's shooting back to normal and Kaiser and Blunk scoring from inside, the Blugolds closed the gap and finally tied the score at 67 with less than two minutes left in the game. They had numerous chances to get the lend but couldn’t seem to get a basket when they needed one. Parkside worked for the last shot of the game and Gary Cole took it with 10 seconds left.

Coach Frank Wrigglesworth expected five of last year’s lettermen back this year, but received a blow when the only junior Jeff Nielsen returned. The roster included 8 freshmen and 1 senior. High points of the season included a quadrangular win over Jot PonttUo Superior, Stout and River Falls and a tie for first with River Falla in their only home meet of the year. The team rarely had anyone shoot in the 70’a for a match and Wrigglesworth said he was disappointed with his players’ performances. The team moved up one notch and tied for 5th in the conference meet with Ken Happe leading the way with a 79. Other conference scores were Rick Walken with an 80, Jim Sumitad Bill Michealson, Joe Pantaleo and Jim Sumstad with 82’s, and Larry O’Neil with an 86. Michealson led the team for the season with an 82 average. The youth movement should improve the squad for next year as the Blugolds will attempt to have one of their finest years ever.

"We have a very talented and happy group of guy who take a great deal of pride in Eau Claire track." said Coach Bill Meiser. physical education instructor, about this year’s team. A few years ago Meiser coined the phrase "Eau Claire track has arrived.” It caught on and now there are 70-plus candidates for the team each year and Eau Claire has become a conference championship contender. The team has been gaining conference status the past few years but Meiser feels the number of students out for the sport is a better indication of how good the program is for the school. He feels there has been too much emphasis put on winning at the college level and that having fun and developing the person is much more impotent. The track team has no captains and no awards system. Meiser said he is interested in developing young people, not in exploiting them for their athletic abilities. Meiser demanded three priorities from his athletes this year. First they had to have a commitment to their parents, second, a commitment to getting a good education and third a commitment to track. He stressed the importance of placing the first two priorities ahead of the third. Meiser started building the program four years ago. This year's seniors have been the driving force of the team over the past few years. They include Ed Ashenden. Dave Bielmeier, Dennis Brooks, Brian Farrell, Craig Hinke. Ray Hughes. Jim Lichty, Mike Mattison and Doug White. Meiser said if a few old players walked into his office a couple of year from now and remembered their old coach and what he taught them about being a person, he’d be happy. "That will mean more to me than winning any championship." he said. (Due to printing deadlines, team statistics do not appear in the 1976 PERISCOPE.) aBaseball Team gets coach, equipment, trip This year brought a fresh beginning to the UWEC baseball program and the man who led the change was the new coach. Sam Mills, physical education instructor. Along with a new coach, the program included a $1,000 pitching machine and a one-week team trip to Tennessee. Mills was graduated from UWEC in 1966 after a successful career as a pitcher for the baseball team. He went on to become a high school coach. After coaching basketball at Winona and baseball and basketball at Evansville, he led McFarland to two state basketball championships. Besides coaching baseball here. Mills was the basketball assistant under Ken Anderson this year as well as a member of the board of directors of the Eau Claire Cavaliers. He feels his relationship with the amateur baseball team will aid in his recruiting and will also help in getting Blugold players to participate in summer ball. The southern trip was the first ever by a Blugold baseball team. They planned to play schools this year such as Middle Tennessee, Austen Pey and David L. Lipscomb College. Funds for the trip were raised by selling tickets for an in-trasquad and non-conference basketball game. They also received donations from various University and local organizations. Prior to this year, Eau Claire was the only team in the conference that did not take a southern trip. The new pitching machine was also purchased through fund-raising activities. Mills said. Mills' philosophy on baseball was that as a game, it goes with the game of life, and he wanted to prepare his players for both. He noted that he strived to build positive attitudes in the baseball program so that both players and other students would be proud of the sport. Mills hoped that the changes in the program this year would improve Blugold baseball and create community and student interest in it. (Due to the printing deadlines, statistics from this year's season are not recorded in the 1976 PERISCOPE.) Sam MilU 225Women in athletics . . . The uomen's athletic teams, as a u hole, enjoyed moderate success this year in intercollegiate competition. For some teams, it was a year of rebuilding. for others, it meant climbing up one or two notches on the conference ladder. f articipation seemed to increase in most women's sports this year and each coach expressed optimism for next year's season. The following pages arc a summary of the women's athletic shotting for 1975-76 Swimming The 1976 Women’s swim team did not have an exceptionally good season hut they came on strong at the state championship meet. The swimmers surprised just about everyone but themselves when they captured third place in the 10-school meet. The only two schools to better the Hlugolds were Madison and LaCrone. The majority of the team will be returning next year but one loss is that of Sue Momsen. The top Sue t»m m finished an artier Hiugold tuim-mintf career I hit tear She wat graduated tn May. swimmer for the Blugolds finished her collegiate competition by swimming in four individual events and two relays. There were no all-conference swimmers or state champions on the squad but Coach Judy Kruckman. physical education instructor, said Momsen. Nancy Koty and Mary Ann Giljohann swam well all year. Koty and Giljohann finished second and third in the 50-yard breaststroke and fourth and fifth in the 100-yard event at the state meet. Both swimmers were sophomores this year. Momsen finished third in the 200-yard freestyle, sixth in the 100-yard butterfly and third in the 400-yard freestyle. Ron I Sandy Lert, Joan SehalM, Holly Ihrhl. Ann Judge. (iniU Chat field.

Kruckman said a luck of depth hurt the team this year and hoped for improvement next year. Tennis A new enthusiastic coach plus a young, talented team equalled women’s tennis-Kau Claire style this Diver Joan Schalk took fourth place in the •talc conference during the final meet held here in November year. Coach Diane Gilbertson, physical education instructor, guided the squad of underclass members to a third place conference finish compared to their seventh place showing Inst year. Iwi Crosse won the event with UW-Milwaukee edging out the Hlugolds by three points for second place. The team finished the season with a 1-2 conference record and placed second in the 10-team tournament at Whitewater and fifth at the La Crosse Invitational meet. In the conference meet, Jill Swanson was the number two singles championship while Dorothy Murphy was runner-up in the number one singles contest. The number one doubles team of Kathy Kipler and Linda Jenson reached the semi-finals and Sue Sarles made it to the quarter-finals at the number three spot. During the year, Murphy finished 10-3 at number one. Swanson was 9-3 at number two and Sarles was 3-7 at number three. Murphy Hou I: Deb Dyke. Undo Jenten.

She said there were 40 candidates for this year's team and that out of the 14 chosen evervone will be returning next year. She also noted that it would be hard to de-throne La Crosse from the conference title but with added experience and a few good freshmen it would be possible to do next year. Next: volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, track. 227Volleyball Thin was a building year for the Eau Claire women’s volleyball team. Most of the squad consisted of freshmen and only two seniors. The inexperienced team, under new coach Carla Mods, physical education instructor. had an 11-11 season record and a trip to the state tournament. The Blugold spikers took second place in their regional against Superior. River Falls and Stout in order to qualify for the state event. Injuries and sickness hit the team just before the tournament however, and the team finished last among the six schools competing. Moos said the Hmr I fVgO' Harwood.

She said next year's outlook is much better with 13-returning players and n few new high school prospects. “The team is fired up for next year." she said. “They are real enthusiastic about their chances." Seniors Deb Gannon and Georgann Hageness are the only team memliers not returning next season. Gannon was the team leader throughout the year and was voted to the second team all-state squad. Basketball The UW-Eau Claire women’s intercollegiate basketball team went through an "off and on" season but luckily they were "on" during the state tournament. Conch Sandy Schumacher's team compiled a 5-1 conference record and a 9-11 overall mark. The season started with three straight losses before they got untracked and won six in a row. But things turned for the wnme again and the team lost seven of its last ninegame . The season was saved with a fifth place finish in the state tournament as the Blugolds split a pair of close Karnes. Victories came over Madison. Superior. Winona. Stout. River Falls and Carthage. The team had a rough time against other teams however, loosing to |.n Crosse twice and Stevens Point three times. Schumacher said the young team consisted of only two seniors. I)eh Ciunnon and Rosemary Iverson. Hut with several returning players and some help out of the high school ranks, the team should have a good season next year. Deli Gannon ended up as the leading scorer with u 10.9 average. Her high game was 22 points against River Falls and she went over the 20 point mark three times, leading relH»unders were Mary Z.ignego and Anne Campshure. Other top players included Terri Koca.

Gymnastics The UWEC gymnastics team lacked depth and experience but made up for it in determination as they concluded a somewhat satisfying season this year. The squad was made up of freshmen and sophomores; only two seniors competed. The team took first place five times during the year and won the regional championships at Superior. 229In the state meet, the gymnasts had a rough time and finished fourth behind Madison. River Falls and La Crosse. The bright spot of the season came in the state meet when Karen Marquardt took a first place in the intermediate-level floor exercfsc. Teammate Kathy Seidel placed third in the all-around competition also at the intermediate level. The advanced team was led by Julie Russell who finished fifth in the floor exercises and Kris McArt who placed fifth in the vault. Coach Mary Mero, physical education instructor, said the team did well on the whole but there were too many beginners and not enough experience. She said the team improved greatly during the year and that next year should be a good one with the high number of returning people. The squad lost only two seniors. Jeanne Anderson and Vicky Girard, at the end of the 1976 season. Awards for the year were given to Patty Messa as Miss Congeniality. Judy Russell and Laura Dallapiezza as next year’s co-captains. Karen Marquardt as Most Improved Performer and Dallapiezza as the Most Valuable Performer. Track The women's track program was on an upswing at Kau Claire and the next few years look very promising.

Coach Alice (lansel said it should Ik no problem finishing in the top 5 out of the 14 sch«K ls competing. She also said the team was shooting for the number two spot. Depth and balance apj enred to l e the team's strong points at the season's start and with an abundance of sophomores and juniors in the squad, the future looked bright. The team was led by Ixiri Meder who finished seventh in the 50-and 100-yard dashes at last year’s conference meet. Cansel said the strongest spot on the team would be the hurdles where Jill Wendt. Lisa Cartier and Judy Fuller could be the top three in the conference. The mile and 4-lap relay teams were expected to score big for the Blugolds as should Mary F.ndres in the shot put and Marilyn Krogwnld and Pat Nicolet in the distance events. Rounding out the Kau Claire hopefulls were Carol Rondeau in the 300-yard dash. Sherry Zuehlke in the 440-and 600-yard dashes, and Sharon Stirdivont in the 880-yard run and Fuller and Heidi Hambuch in the high jump.

Their best efforts during football games this year may have fired-up the few high schoolers present, whereas a mere wave of the hand drove the basketball crowd into a frenzy. Stuntman Larry Allen felt that it was the more serious fan who really followed the team who attended the basketball games. Or it could be, he said, that spectators at football games were having too much fun in the stands to respond. The football crowd seemed to go to have a good time. When the crowd didn’t respond, Allen said, he tried to be more enthusiastic himself. Rowdy cheers, like "Shove it" or "Bananas" sometimes got a rousing cheer or two out of the people in a pinch, he said. Cheerleader Debbie Machus said she felt frustrated when there was no crowd participation at football games but that she kept on trying. She felt many in the crowd appreciated the squad's efforts even if they didn't respond. Machus and Allen agreed that having both cheerleaders and stuntmen was invaluable. More dif- ficult partner stunta were performed, sturdier towers and pyramids didn’t topple easily, and stunts involved more gymnastics. It looked more polished and professional, Allen said.

It was a specialty j f UWEC pompon girls. Enthusiasm begot enthusiasm; when the squad was up. so was the crowd. "Someone actually asked me if we get belted if we don’t smile.” Georgia Paulsen said. The pompon squad entertained the crowd but did not attempt to con trol it as the cheerleaders did. Because they wore given one chance per game to prove themselves, every aspect of the routine had to be perfect. Their shoes, for example . . . "The color of the shoes must be noticeable," said captain Jenny Dunlap, "or our kicks won’t stand out." It can’t be too noticeable, or the crowd can tell if our feet are not aligned," she said. New routines were built from parts of old ones. Girls who had done routines for a certain song in the past Ruth Shervey practiced a routine before a football game performance last fall Koike.

The girls helped each other when they spotted mistakes, but they were always aware of hurt feelings. "Everybody has bad days and will say things like ‘You just do it yourself " co-captain Jill Wendt said, but the girls usually tried to accept the criticism in the helpful spirit it was given. Because basketball season was most popular at Eau Claire, the squad scheduled moat of its performances then. This year they also timed swimming meets, went to wrestling matches, and sold programs at football games.. Marching, pep bands spark spirit If you’ve ever gone to a Blugold football game, you might have noticed that is was sometimes difficult to keep your attention on the gridiron and the Blugold players at all times. You may have found that your posterior was rebeling against the cold hard bleachers, your mind was on all the work that was sitting, undone, at home, or your eye wandered around the stadium and focuses on another colorful blue and gold group—the Blugold marching band. The 120 member band, under the direction of music professors. Dr. Donald George, Rodney Hudson. William Henley and drum major Joseph Silko, began their marching season in late August. The band practiced three hours during the week until early November, and people living in a certain radius of the Fine Arts building could rise at 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning to a drum cadence and “In the Mood." According to George, the func- tion and the purpose of the band was to supply entertainment at all Eau Claire home football games. A Bicentennial theme was used for halftime shows and the band paid musical tribute to four American institutions: The Circus, Spirituals, John Philip Sousa, and the Big Band Sounds of the ’40's, which also included a performance by the pom pon squad. George said, "This year’s marching band has been the best band musically. Emphasis has been on musical quality and not just on putting on a flashy show. It’s the best year we’ve had.” Success, however, did not spoil the old spirit of the marching band. Cheers were risque and the E-L-E-P-H-A-N-T cheer brought the tubas down for a grunt-off. The haunting music of “Jaws” was a much requested number and silent cheers and pep music were extremely popular. entertainment at Eau Claire’s home basketball games. This year, the bands were moved to the lower bleachers from the balcony and increased in size from 20 to 50 volunteer members. According to George, this meant a bigger and better band and a closer working contact with the cheerleaders, the pom pon squad and students. The pep bands were student run. The University band directors felt that student directors had more contact with students and would know what students wanted to hear. Student directors this year were Joseph Silko, Jeffrey Savagian. Nancy Schaffer and Robert Ponto. These students were responsible for conducting rehearsals and performances at basketball games under the supervision of the University band staff.

The University Recreation program operates out of the Hilltop Center and among other things, acts as a major recruiter for UWEC. Bach year more than 80 percent of all enrolled students take part in at least one Recreation activity. Individual participation for each sport totalled 242,148 for last year and participation increased this year. University Recreation is rated the highest on the Finance Commission’s list of priorities. More emphasis is being placed on recreation in today's society and UWEC developed a 22 person staff to handle the wishes of today’s students. According to Assistant Director of Recreation. Roger Johnson, "The program is filled to maximum every year and we have to turn back some students." Nearly 2,000 students participated in the fall program this year. Activities included football, softball, soccer and volleyball. Winter activities included basketball, volleyball and bowling while the springtime offered softball, basketball. water polo and pushball. University Recreation was organized Nov. 1, 1966 with a very small budget and program. The program now includes leagues and tournaments in touch football, women’s football, bowling, billiards, basketball, golf, volleyball, softball, chess, checkers, horseshoes, water polo, broomball. badminton and tennis. About 1,200 trophies and t-shirts are given to champions each year. Johnson said basketball and softball are the most popular among male students while female students lean toward softball and volleyball. An average of 720 women par- 235Morr than 700 uomen participate in the ipnng •oft ball program each year. "The Rippen." a team of upperclaumm. P° rd for a group hot after winning a football championship in the falL ticipate in the spring softball program and 700 play winter volleyball. Men’s spring softball has 1.080 participants while 720 play winter basketball. Student activity fees pay for the cost of Recreation program and also provide employment for 100 students in the program. Duties range from clerical work to officiating games, scorekeeping, lifeguard duty, etc. The budget and allotment of money's is determined yearly by the student Finance Commission. Unlike most state schools, the UWEC Recreation program is separate from the athletic program. This provides Recreation a chance to obtain more money and a larger program. The UWEC program is the largest in the state, although Marquette University comes in a close second. Clayton Anderson has been director of Recreation for the past 17 years and he expects the program to continue to grow. “We try to find a place for everyone in Recreation," he said, "and our growth and flexibility helps us to provide this service to the students." The Recreation Department begins each semester by offering the students "Bonus Days" during the week of registration. Free bowling and billiards as well as softball and tennis tournaments for both men and women are offered. I ■As each semester begins, teams are quickly formed and the competition for the season begins. Recreation has become a part of student life over the past several years. For some it is serious business, to others it is a time to relax and have fun. There are several ways in which teams form and many stories on how some of them stay together for more than a single sport or year. Bill Menders was a sophomore from DePere and this was his first year as coach of the "Weird Beardos" basketball team. Unlike many student managers who recruited only the best players they could find for their team, Bill brought together seven players who went to high school with each other. Bob Hausmann was a two-year manager of the “Bridgman Stars.” The “Stars" were made up of students from first and second floor Bridgman, while faces tended to change each year. Hausman said he recruited guys from the dorms both years. Lisa Cartier, a Wauwatosa junior managed "Cart's Wheels" in this year's powder puff football season. They had a 4-1 record and finished second to a powerful team call the “Terry Turf-Bumers.” Managed by Terri Coca, the “Turf-Burners” won their third straight championship. The "Rippers" was another team Co-ed volleyball was popular during the u inter months. Each team had an equal number of male and female members. that stayed together for more than one year. Managed by John Metcalf and consisting of a group of men who lived on Lake Drive, they won Recreation’s American League title in football the last three years. "Ripper" Craig Stoinski also won the league scoring title all three years. When the weather got cold and Half Moon Lake froze, the “Rippers" could be found out on the ice practicing for the brooraball season. They also had one of the best broomball teams on campus. One Recreation football team, now called the “Lawn Mowers" , was formed six years ago by Larry Lamers under the name the “Horan Eagles". The players lived in Horan Hall then and most of them were varsity athletes in another sport. The “Eagles-Mowers" went five years without a defeat. Three of those years they were not even scored upon. This year their string of titles was broken by Mark Cobb’s "4th Addition.” It was the third straight crown for the winning team, which consisted mainly of juniors. The Recreation program was a much utilized extra curricular activity this year. It was a part of life for some, and escape from the books for others and a great tension-release for three-fourths of the students. Programs were designed to include both the individual seeking casual participation and the person desiring keen competition in organized leagues and tournaments. 237Student need not be member« of team to u e the Hilltop Center ' pool tablet and boa-ling lane They provide a Saturday afternoon pattime for tome, other get in a quick game after eating or ttudying at Hilltop. These activities are available year round 238Kaiser, Gannon athletes of the year For the second year, the PERISCOPE wishes to recognize the senior athletes on the Eau Claire campus who have been leaders both on and off the field and court. To be a great student athlete takes time, dedication and many sacrifices. It means hours of practice followed by hours of study. Again, because of the deadline restrictions, we wish to extend our apologies to the participants of spring sports because we could not include them in our considerations. Qualifications for the PERISCOPE Student Athlete of the Year Award required senior status, nomination by the coach for outstan-ding talent and leadership, conclusion of athletic eligibility and 2.5 cumulative gradepoint average at UWEC. Based on these qualifications, the PERISCOPE proudly honors basketball player Ken Kaiser and basketball and volleyball player Deb Gannon as the 1975-76 outstanding male and female student atheletes. Ken. a native of Burlington WI, has compiled an outstanding athletic record in his four years at Eau Claire. Last year he was the national winner of the Emil S. Liston Award, an honor which is bestowed annually on the top junior student-basketball player in the nation. Ken was a three-year starter on a Blugold basketball team which compiled a 39-9 conference record. He was all-conference honorable mention his sophomore and junior years and first team all-conference and alldistrict in his senior year. This season. Ken was captain of the team and he ended as the second leading scorer and rebounder. He was also the most valuable player in the Eau Claire Holiday Classic and became the 12th leading scorer in the school’s history. Along with his athletic prowess. Ken won this year’s award by compiling a 3.85 cumulative gradepoint average. Deb won the women’s award for her outstanding talent and leadership on the women's basketball and volleyball teams. She was a four-year player in both sports and par- ticipated on the women’s track team also. Deb spent part of her spare time officiating Recreation games and various athletic contests in the Eau Claire area. This past year Deb led the basketball team in scoring with a 10.9 points per game average and added four rebounds a game. She shot 40 percent from the field and 57 percent from the free throw line. Other contributions included 50 assists and 46 steals during the 19-game season. Deb was the team leader on the volleyball squad winning second team all-conference awards for her efforts. Along with her athletic skills Deb carries a 2.6 gradepoint average. We would like to extend our congratulations to Ken and Deb for their fine athletic ability and leadership. Congratulations are also in order to those who did not win the award but gave 100 percent in their respective sports. We hope the level of education and athletic ability will continue to rise on the Eau Claire campus. 239Li£e o£ a college December IP. (975 More than anything in the world ris:ht now.

Reasons for our eccentricity vary -lightly from senior to senior hut thev run along the same general themes. Some of us. alter meandering through three years of college, suddenly decide that we do. after all. want to he graduated in four years. Others sit on the sidelines of activity during those undergraduate wars and. in an attempt to make up lor it, pack senior year with involvement in a number of (i.e. too manyi organizations. Still others look ahead to next vear and decide in panic, that wc aren't ready to face the "real world" so we pick up extra classes, hoping to better equip ourselves for the cmn-[K’litive job market. Whatever the reason, college senior . in general, are a rare breed. Before this year. I had always considered myself a relatively normal. well-ndjuMted person. I ate good meals on a regular schedule, got seven to eight hours of sleep per night, kept my room clean, and never let a weekend go by without getting .some re-t and relaxation. My life was organized and 1 cruised at a comfortable speed. This year, however I find that everything I've done lor the past 21 vear has gone out the door. My modus nperandi has Itecn replaced by a new method of living: my gears have shifted from "cruise" to "race". Although I never Would have believed my life could he so hectic, I had n notion it might he busy when I was suddenly named editor of the yearbook and president of a senior women's society in the space of a lew duv- These, along with one other club promised to take most of my free lime.

There was no easing into my senior year With 20 credits. I had enough work to keep me busy alter the first day of classes. My editor job proved to he a lull lime commitment requiring organization, administration. and personnel management skills in order to even get by. much less he a success. I learned quickly. Alter the first few day- of school. I acquired ait item which has rarely lelt my side since an appointment calendar.

The calendar filled quickly and my life Ireniine unified by strings of meetings, yearbook work, and occasionally. homework Sleep ami food fell lower on my priority list. 1 gained five isxinda in the beginning of the semester by eating candy hum to calm my nerves, and then lost 1. pounds during an extra-hectic 10-dny stretch. Average hours of sleep went from seven to lour per night The Wednesday before Thanksgiving I got II hours of sleep more than I’d gotten Sunday. Monday and Tuesday totaled.

All hut two of mv plants died during the semester senior due to neglect, and my lack of muii was due to a lack of correspondence with the outside world. Dirtv laundry would gather in my closet until I had to wear skirts to school. That would usually prompt me to takeoff a few hours for a trip to the When I received my third overdraft notice I decided to close my checking account until 1 could lind lime to balance a checkbook What Imthcred me most about the semester was mv lack of anything that could he called "tree time”.

I round that some college professors are really human something I'd suspected Indore hut wasn't really sure of. And often, while sitting in a class situation the only time I could think about just one thing it struck me that college, is a world apart from the "real world." It's active, hectic and not really worth the anxiety and lack ol sleep we -indents put ourselves through at times. And vet. gathering with a group ol peels and a teacher, is so secure sometimes It makes one want to wait just a few weeks longer to apply lor job- and think ahead to next year when we'll go hack to being members of the human race wlu-n we'll try to raise houscplanis again, find regular rest lor bloodshot eyes, and forget alsiiit our work at the end of the working day.

I feel excited, prepared and ready to use all I've learned from the stacks of books and endless class notes my bookshelf has accumulated over four years. Yet, a small part of me is still the same scared freshman, who sat in an empty dorm room the first week of school, paging through her high school yearbooks. wishing she could bring back all of those comfortable days. . . . Today, the high school memories have been replaced by others, and now it is comforting for me to remember my life here as I approach what will be a new and different life. Looking back on the last four years I feel a sense of accomplishment, in all that I've experienced and in what I have become. Eau Claire has provided me with priceless friendships and has showed me the beauty in a campus filled with different, unique kinds of people. Aside from what I learned in the classroom, I discovered other things too—like how to chug a beer, or pull "all nigh ter", or talk for hours with my roommates over bowls of popcorn. I’ll never forget any of it. And I'm sure that each experience, from failing a test to cheering on the Blugolds, has made me more able and confident to succeed in my new life. I guess I find it hard to believe that I really am graduating, yet I can't wait to become a part of what teachers keep referring to as the "real world!" —Linda TrembathJANET ALBERT Management Madiaon JOHN ALTERS Comp.

Di» Owen KAREN ZDROJOWY Mu»ic Tnmah MONIKA ZORMAN History Marshfield 293Nursing learning about the sick patient and what can be done to help, constant studying in the library and going to the hospital early every morning; these have been my experiences as a student nurse on campus. Because much of our nursing program includes education in the hospital setting, the role of a professional becomes part of the student nurse early in college. Wearing those "gorgeous" blue uniforms identifies student nurse and makes the nursing major a unique part of UWEC. After making the grade and being accepted into the program as a sophomore, three years and a summer session advanced me on the road to becoming an RN. After being capped. 1 had my first real taste of nursing—during summer session—that first bed bath, therapeutic back rub. and IM injection (shot). My junior year brought medical-surgical nursing and care plans, followed by nursing for babies, new mothers, children, and families. This year I was challenged to put it all together with leadership—as a team leader in charge of a hospital unit. Because we spent from eight to three every day either in the hospital or at the School of Nursing, and from four to six at the Black Steer every Friday night, our class became a close knit group. As one non-nursing student put it. "When two nursing majors see each other, they don't even say 'Hi'. . . just 'How's your follow-through comingV or 'Did you study for the Peds test?”' -Anne AustinDEBRA ALBRECHT Deer Park Nununjc ANNE AUSTIN OakfMd Nurvinx KATHLEEN BERRY Burlington Nureinx TERRANCE BESTUL WiUrnhtnt Nureinx DEBRA BOECK Elm Gruve Nununx JENNIFER BRAUN Eau Claire Nlining ANN BRAZA Milwaukee Nureinx CYNTHIA BUSCH Mvnomonie NureinxJOYCE HUMBOLDT Nursing WilUrd DIANE HEIN Nursing Stratford ANNE HONES Nursing Eau Claire REBECCA JOHNSON Nursing Augusta KAREN BUSHMAN Appleton Nursing MARY CARLSON Plainfield Nursing KATHLEEN CERNOHOUS Chetek Nursing AMY CONVERSE Eau Claire Nursing RI TA FELLING Osceola Nursing PATRICIA FERNETTE Nursing Proirie du Chien KATHLEEN FULLER Nursing Eau Claire DEBRA FURYK Nursing McNaughton JANE JUSTESBN Nursing Augusta PATRICIA KOSTUCH Nursing Stevens Point MARILYN KROGWOLD Nursing Brodhead KAREN KUEPPKR Nursing Menosha CHERYL LEE Nursing Eau Claire DIANE LEE Nursing Elk Mound NANCY UMBERG Nursing Glenwood City MARY MANZ Nursing Menomonee Falls ELLEN MC CRAW Nursing Dodgeville ROSALIE MEYER Nursing Reeds burg GRETCHEN MILUMAN Nursing Rice Ukr BETTE MOON Nursing West by VICKI MYRF.N Nursing Eau Clair JUDITH OLSON Nursing Bloomer HOLLY ONSAGER Nursing Valders DARLENE PAWLIK Nursing GilmanJACQUELINE Rl'PUNGEH Nursing Tomahawk NANCY ROGERS Nursing St oven Point YVONNE PAWLOW1CZ Nursing Dorchester ROSEMARY PELANEK Nursing Marshfield LAURIE PEPLINSKI Nursing Milwaukee LOUISE PFEIFER Nursing Cudahy KATHLEEN PLATER Nursing Milwaukee KATHLEEN POHLOD Nursing Phillip DEBRA REHBERG Nursing Wisconsin Rapids DEBRA ROBARGB Nursing Roseville.
