It represents different things to different people. A mood. An experience. A secret. A tragedy. An interest. An environment. But to us, the students of UW-Eau Claire, it denotes a unity, a spirit of common interest, excellence in-education. Blue and gold thus becomes our passageway to the future. Periscope invites you to share in this experience— a look to the blue, and gold!6Experience ••• 7Secret... Environment... 912-Books So often, campus social life tends to linger in our minds and we forget the real reason why we're here--to prepare ourselves for a career. Thus, Periscope presents "The Books"a brief look at 24 of the majors offered at UW-Eau Claire.-J f Art Art is an esthetic experience and for art students at the university, there is an esthetic environment that inspires, stimulates and helps in creating art. Aside from working with the Eau Claire environment, art students also work with Eau Claire public and private community agencies. One result of student-agency cooperation was the colorful designing of the Eau Claire Transit System (ETC) and its advertising. Art students are offered a strong practical curriculum but a number of popular classes are designed for the non-art student. Introduction to the Visual Arts and its studio counterpart aimed at increasing basic awareness of art through lectures, presentations and studio experiences, are popular general studies courses. Studio courses in painting, ceramics and art metals are consistently popular with art students...even students like Frederick Haug, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, who enrolled in a ceramics class first semester. A photography course has been added to the art curriculum, but will not be offered until a darkroom has been authorized for the Fine Arts building. An 18th Century Art History course and European travel for credit are also additions to the curriculum. A course called "Intermedia" may be added to the art curriculum. "Intermedia" is an effort to break away from standard art media. Laser beam and video tape equipment from the chemistry department may be used. Students would also work with local industries in their attempt at finding other "Intermedia." UPPER LEFT: Julia Roil . LEFT: John Rumch. Books-13History BELOW: Dr. Richard Marcus prepares a slide presentation for his history class. "You will hate all Jews. You will be loyal to the Fuhrer... Adolph Hitler!" According to one student enrolled in the history course, "The Nazis and Germany," you had to feel and think like a Nazi to understand what people went through under Hitler's rule. Studying history gives a better understanding of the present, because the present could not be understood without some knowledge of the past. Students of history can see the processes of change through many aspects of society. Studying history "provides training in evaluation of evidence and helps promote a critical habit of the mind." Liberal arts majors who are in the field of history use their degrees as groundwork for further study in business, government, law and journalism. Secondary education history majors use their degrees to teach younger people about their world. A new class added to the department's curriculum recently is Studies in the History of Women, which includes a survey of the entire history of women in the western world or women in American History. Also added is the History of Canada, from its early exploration to the present.Chemistry The crash of a falling test tube... Your lab partner screaming, "Oh no, acid all over my new pants." These are sounds that are so familiar to a chemistry major. The sounds that make hours of lab work more bearable and exciting. There are five chemistry major programs offered by the chemistry department. Chemistry A.C.S., the first major, leads to certification into the American Chemical Committee on Professional Training. At least 42 credits of chemistry are required. The liberal arts chemistry major and the chemistry teaching major take many of the same courses. The chemistry department and the School of Business both offer a chemistry-business comprehensive major. Students interested in chemical sales, marketing and technical programs take 30 credits of both chemistry and business. The physical science comprehensive teaching major requires a minimum of 24 credits in chemistry and 30 credits in physics or 24 credits in physics and 30 credits in chemistry. This program leads to certification both in chemistry and physics in secondary education programs. BOTTOM LEFT: Jim Sarafin, president o the American Chemical Society works on a project.Medical Technology Competition--every student feels it at one time or another. In Medical Technology, though, competition has an added meaning. Every student works to be accepted by a hospital for the senior year residency There are many students, but there are few hospitals. Once in a residency program, the students work in a hospital as a resident medical technologist. Only after successful completion of this residency can a student graduate. Medical technology is a comprehensive major in the university’s Division of Allied Health program. Requirements include seven biology courses, eight chemistry courses, two math courses, two physics courses, one psychology course and at least two medical technology courses. Students study disease and infections, immunology and the structure of the blood, microbiology and parasitology. A student soon becomes familiar with laboratories and complex, technological terms. UPPER RIGHT: Pctcf Siakpere. ABOVE: Karen Krueger. 16-BooksBiology "Everything you wanted to know about sex..." This could be an applicable title for one of the most popular general studies courses offered by the Biology Department. Human Sexual Biology is designed to help answer and explain the questions that many students "are afraid to ask." This is aided by having students write their curiosities on notecards, to be discussed in the informal lab sessions. The Biology department is a catch-all, with offerings in plant, insect, animal and human lifestyles—including the environmental effects of the latter. General studies courses in environmental biology have increased in popularity with the growing awareness for ecology. Courses combine the science and the law in creating student awareness. For the serious science student, especially the major, lab courses are a must. Dissection techniques develop with lab work on worms, frogs, fetal pigs and other life forms. 8ooki-17English "And forthi, who that hath an hed of verre Fro caste of stones war hym in the werrel" Do you recognize that familiar saying? If you studied Chaucer this year reading Middle English would be second nature to you. One of several specialized courses offered by the English department, Chaucer involves reading, translating and writing Middle English. Other English courses specialize in Shakespeare, Milton and periods of literature and drama. This year the English department offered for the first time, "English Semester." This combines four literature courses into a 12 credit semester course. This allows the student to go more in-depth in literature with less repetition than if the student took the four classes separately. "This tale is doon, and God save all the rowtel" This tale is done, and God save us all. IS-BooksLEFT: John Wottrich. LOWER LEFT: Linda Barger (SITTING), Dan O'Neil, Paul Dernbach, Wilbur Hoppe, Cary Cebohki, Vicky Borncr. Mathematics Are you If you answered yes, did you ever consider a mathematics major? Surprisingly to many students, math at Eau Claire can be a creative as well as active subject. Analytical studies are still stressed and math students are required to complete three semesters of calculus (toting around a book that rivals the Webster Dictionary in weight), but math is changing. In an upper-level geometry course, students put their artistic talents to work by creating tesellation art. Taught by Joseph Teeters, an accomplished artist in this area, the artwork is a combination of creativity and geometric principles, resulting in a design of repeating shapes. Activity—getting out and doing—is a requisite in the elementary surveying course. Students are required to survey streets and other geographic areas, and can be seen setting equipment in all weather, facing on-coming cars and milling students. With the onset of the computer age, the mathematics department is stressing the practical application of mathematics in other fields. Students often combine their math majors with business and computer science classes. Bookt-19Journalism The sound of banging typewriter keys, the smell of rubber cement in the editing room, the scent of hypo and fixer coming from the photo lab, hands smudged by editing pencil— these are the sounds, sights, and smells that are familiar to journalism students. Journalism students are required to take such courses as news-writing, news-editing and photography. But there's more to being a journalism major than just taking required courses. Journalism students are expected to get involved in working on a publication or in some phase of broadcasting. It takes hours of work, but the experience gained is irreplaceable. Next time you're at a forum or a concert just look around. . .you'll probably see a few people frantically scribbling on a notepad or a lone photographer trying to get that one good shot before the deadline. Remember, it's all part of being a journalism major. This coming year the journalism department will be adding two new courses to its curriculum-sales and promotion and broadcast news-theory and practice. UPPER: Ann Oberie witches herself broadcast the news. UPPER RIGHT: Dan Rindflelsch. LOWER: Mark Bkhler prepares for printing in the photo lab. 20-BooksThe musicians--the creators of sound—the students who spend their college careers practically living in the Fine Arts Building. What's the driving force behind the determined hours of practice and long rehearsals? The music department provides a comprehensive bachelor of music degree for students who wish to continue performing after they graduate. These students are required to perform a full recital their senior year. Vocal music majors who are working toward a bachelor of music degree also give full recitals their senior year. Vocal majors are also required to take a year of French or German prior to LEFT: Sceve loyal their graduation. For students who plan to teach music there is a bachelor of music education degree. This comprehensive major includes both instrumental and vocal music. Besides the regular courses music majors are enrolled in, there are continued rehearsals, the individual practicing, concerts and recitals to prepare for. Behind every music major there's a determination to keep improving. This is achieved only through long hours of practice...practice...practice... Book»-21Marketing 22-Books The four P's of marketing...product, price, promotion and place and demand graphs...charts and figures--is that what you think of when you hear someone say they're a marketing major? Supply and demand is a large part of the field of marketing, but there's more. Like business administration majors, marketing majors participate in a policy formulation and administration simulation. The idea is to learn how to sell a product the consumer will be pleased with. It involves forecasting budgets, investments and anticipating the problems encountered in trying to sell a product. There are no Internship programs in the marketing program, but the present marketing curriculum provides a strong background for students who are interested in jobs in sales, advertising and marketing. UPPERRIGHT: Dr.Francii Sailer, RIGHT: Dr. Lawrence lephto.Books-23 Sociology Effective this fall, the union of Sociology and Social Work is over. The two have gone their separate ways, and Dr. Kenneth Davidson became the new Sociology department chairperson. Davidson has ideas for new classes that may be very popular with students in coming years. These classes are Courtship and Marital Relationships, Sociology of the Family and Sociology of Human Sexuality. Davidson, whose professional emphasis is marriage and family life, feels these courses would be a unique and interesting addition to the current curriculum. Perspectives on Death, an upper-level course, proved to be a popular class, and sections closed quickly at fall registration. The class deals with approaches to death, practices relating to death in the U.S., dying as a social act and the role of the helping professions. A new major in criminal justice is being put through channels by the Sociology department. If the major does go through, many opportunities in the law enforcement field will be made available to students. UPPER LEFT: Or. David Troian, professor of Sociology, checks lest results with a student.Ralph, Mort and Petey were enrolled in an experimental psychology class, indirectly. This dass was required of them, and it's the only class they'll ever have a chance to take. Ralph, Mort and Petey are white rats used by psychology students to conduct experiments. Experimental psychology is only one of the courses offered by the psychology department. Theories of learning, counseling and personality are studied. The history of psychology, a relatively new science of man's behavior, is studied. Courses that cover the aspects of the person, inside the person and the person's interactions with the outside world are also offered. The department has a strong liberal arts emphasis for non-majors and general studies people, besides strong programs for the major. Two major programs, liberal arts psychology and secondary teaching psychology are offered, as well as three minor programs: liberal arts minor, secondary teaching minor and elementary teaching minor. Psychology 24 Book Social Work Social workers deal with peoples' problems-people who are alcoholic, poor, old, sick, delinquent. Students majoring in social work may not have dealt with people whose problems are so severe until their senior year, when they are placed in a social welfare agency for practical experience. Some students like working with these people and some don't. A freshman-sophomore level practical course may be added to the curriculum to help students decide if they like social work. Students will be placed in a social agency and gain practical experience. A sophomore level personal awareness course, designed for people interested in social services may be added. It will involve empathy and assertive training and effective training techniques. Social work was a comprehensive major in the department of Sociology until this year, when it established its own department. Books-25ABOVE: Michelle Carrier ulk$ with Dr. Tom Barth. UPPER RIGHT: Kevin Edison and Scott Thomas look over amendments for legislative Politics. RIGHT: Rick Petershack. Carter-Ford, Gundersen-Baldus, Steiner-Zemke. In an election year the names of the candidates become a regular part of a political science student's vocabulary. Involvement is essential outside, as well as inside, the classroom. Many classes call for students to become part of a campaign; to discover the "mechanics” of the electoral process. Other classes in local and national government make use of simulations to help the student understand lawmaking. Assuming the role of Governor, minority whip or president of Brazil is not unusual in these simulated experiences. A popular addition to the political science curriculum is Causes of War-Conditionsof Peace, a general studies course that provides analysis of the different biological and psychological factors of international conflict. Courses in criminal justice are being added to the political science curriculum to supplement those students pursuing careers in police science. Many political science majors specialize in education, law or train for government positions. 26-Book Business Administration To dream of becoming a banker or president of a huge company often seems years away, but students studying Business Administration have that opportunity even before they leave the university. Business Administration gives students a chance to participate in the actual management of a company. A course called policy formulation and administration sets the atmosphere for working in a corporation and the situations and problems that company administration must cope with. Courses in business administration give students a general accounting background and prepare them for general business jobs. In conjunction with the First Wisconsin National Bank of Eau Claire, each year three students work in the bank. Students work three hours a week constantly gaining background in the field of banking. The business administration department is continually looking for ways and programs to gain a better understanding of business and where students can receive practical experience. New courses such as land use controls and mathematical analysis for business have been considered for next year's class schedule. Book v-27I Elementary Education UPPER RIGHT: Dijne Bresina. Jane Johnson "The Velveteen Rabbit,"...a rollicking game of Duck, Duck, Goose...7 x 5 = 35...sounds elementary doesn't it? For elementary education majors it is more than just kid's stuff; it's the key to good teaching. Basic math, reading, science, art and physical education courses not only evoke memories of their younger years, but prepare the future teachers to handle all academic areas in the elementary school. Upperdass students in elementary education are required to take "the block,” a series of teaching methods courses that prepare them for student teaching or interning positions in the professional semester. A recent addition to the elementary education curriculum. Tutoring in the Elementary School, is designed to give freshmen experience with children. 28-BooksSpecial Education major observe Park School classes (rom Brewer olnervalory. Special Education A UWEC student sits in a basement of a local church, peering over the shoulder of a younger, emotionally handicapped student. She helps him with a difficult math problem. He needs constant reenforcement to curb his negative social behavior. Other students act as girl scout leaders for a troop of mentally retarded girls, while others work with mentally retarded and handicapped people in local pools as a pan of the Operation Turtle program. These types of volunteer work, assigned as part of a sophomore level special education course, help a student understand what teaching the retarded or handicapped would be like, and whether they want to remain in the field. Special education is a comprehensive major which included elementary education courses. Special education majors must take the Block sequence of elementary methods courses, and will eventually be certified to teach normal elementary grade level children as well as the mentally retarded and handicapped people at both elementary and secondary levels.

RIGHT: Pre-law student Tim Duket. 30-Books A special academic department at UW-Eau Claire is the preprofessional program. The preprofessional program is designed to guide students interested in working toward a degree in such areas as pre-architecture, pre-law, preagriculture, pre-forestry and preengineering. Once students have taken all courses that are applicable to their major they will move on to another institution to achieve their professional degree. Each student has an advisor who helps the student choose a reputable school that will offer the best professional program. Pre-professional majors such as pre-pharmacy may be advised in working as an intern. Often advisors will help place these students in internship positions. Mortuary science Occupational therapy Physical therapy Police administration Veterninary medicineCommunicative Disorders A challenge-teaching a child the very basics about speech-working with a stroke victim who now needs direction in speaking. This is the challenge that faces students in communicative disorders. Communicative disorders involves the study of anatomy, physiology and the very causes of speech impediments. Courses such as the study of stuttering deal with specific speech problems that may arise. In recent years, intense work has been done in dealing with students who have trouble with concepts that are essential to learning. An example of this would be those children who cannot differentiate between the concepts of up and down. Communicative Disorder majors receive training in the field when they student teach for nine weeks in a public school under a speech clinician. LEFT: Call Van Tatenhoe. 32-BooksPhysical Ed. "For men only," or "For women only," are terms no longer associated with the Physical Education department. According to Ida Hinz, department chairperson, most classes are now co-educational, but the material included has remained the same. Trying to fill your two credit requirements with beginning canoeing, golf, horseback riding, skiing, or tennis might be difficult, since those are the most popular courses offered. New courses include power volleyball, skin and scuba diving, racquetball and cross-country skiing. For physical education majors, the department has added thirteen professional coaching and teaching courses. Knowledge of the human anatomy is basic to the study of physical education, and courses in chemistry and kinesiology aid in the study of the internal system. Physical education students are required to go beyond books and take an active role in coaching and refereeing intramurals or assisting instructors with their physical education classes. Participation in athletics is a learningand entertainment experience for the students, and almost all become active in the intramural or varsity sports offered at UW-Eau Claire. UPPER LEFT: Cathy Fruzen Books-33Accounting For 2444 weeks, it was on the best-seller list. Is it an Agatha Christie mystery or an Arthur Hailey novel? Neither one, it is the basic text for Accounting 201 and 202. ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES by Nisswonger and Fess is a familiar name for all business students, since accounting is a requirement of the basic business core. Accounting majors have a variety of courses to select from that cover corporate, tax and personal accounting. The CPA is a comprehensive major and students must successfully pass a state examination before receiving certification. A course in individual income tax is one of the most popular general studies offered in the Accounting department. Here students learn to interpret and complete the 1040 form and other more difficult tax forms. To the accounting student, it's more than just numbers, it's a challenge. It's not unusual to spend hours with debits and credits, and coping with the problems of the unbalanced balance sheet. 34-Book Management SOCIETY FOE advancement of M AN AGEMENT . a head start in management training • contrast classroom theory with the everyday world of business • get involved with a growing organization Meeting; BANKING III Spring yen 1!

What do executives need to know about good management? Management majors are not only able to answer these questions, but they are also ready to go out into the field and practice these business habits. Management is a comprehensive major that encompasses all aspects of industrially-related businesses. Management majors are required to take the same basic courses as business administration and marketing majors. A new program that was initiated this year was the cooperative education program. Under the program, management students would be trained for a specific position and would receive credit for the job besides receiving a wage. This gives the students on-the-job training in a position that they may wish to hold once they graduate.Nursing 36 Books Anatomy and physiology, zoology, pathology and bacteriology, hours spent in the lab dissecting a cat or pig, working with a bed-ridden patient—it's all part of being a nursing major. As a portion of their curriculum, nursing students are assigned to work at a community hospital. A course called community health gives students an opportunity to work at the homes of out-patients. These programs allow nursing students a chance to gain practical experience as well as credit for the work they do. Independent study was especially emphasized in this year's curriculum. This gives nursing students an even greater sense of the responsibility involved in the nursing profession. UPPER RIGHT: Julie Jacobsen works with a hypodermic needle. LOWER RIGHT: Student nurses gain practical experience at community hospitals.Faculty members: Above and beyond the call of classes You're silling in Brai Kabin on a Friday night. You've had a few drinks and you're feeling GOOD. You're naturally growing louder. You're laughing hysterically and you turn around just enough to see one of your professors sitting're shocked. Your first reaction is "I could die." This may be your initial response to seeing one of your professors on Water Street or anywhere other than in the classroom. It seems we forget that faculty members are people too. We also have a tendency to think that professors have no other world than their profession. There are 10,000 students attending UW-Eau Claire and 60S faculty positions, making the student-faculty ratio 20 to 1. Most faculty members fall in the 30 to 40 year old age bracket. It's also interesting to note where faculty members have graduated from. Instructors come from all over the United States. This provides a faculty with a varied background. Outside the university, faculty members enjoy many of the activities students participate in. Faculty members do everything from roller skating to going down to Water Street on a Friday night. There are also faculty members who have numerous accomplishments from outside the university. Ivar Launde, instructor of music, was chosen to lead the Norway Symphony. Bruce Taylor of the English department has had many of his poetry books published, while Grace Walsh was recognized for her 50 years of participation in forensics. Art instructor, Gretchen Grimm, received recognition on a state level. Grimm was voted art educator of the year by the Wisconsin Art Education Association. Other members of the faculty have gone beyond the state level in achieving recognition. Dominic Spera, music professor, wrote some of the music for the performances held at Disney World. The UW-Eau Claire faculty is a diverse staff. Its interests and activities are as varied as those of the students here. ABOV£: Allen Demo. ChemKiry Bookt-37RIGHT: Morris Hayes, Richard Johnson.

I can't wait for lunch—turkey tetrazini and tator tots. I hope the line isn't too long so I can go back to my room and sleep... AS GENERAL WOLFE MARCHED AGAINST THE FRENCH DURING THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR...... Sleep, that's sure one thing I didn't have too much of this weekend.

Provides Experience For students Cooperative Education is just what its name implies. Businesses cooperate with the school and with students to provide educational experiences that are close to the real world, Louis Levy, cooperative education coordinator, said. Students involved in the program spend one to two semesters working full-time on a job directly related to their major, earning a salary, as well as two to eight credits. The program provides students with the practical experience that they could not learn in the classroom. Levy said. It also provides the student with useful employment contacts after graduation. Full-time students with a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 and junior standing are eligible for the program, he said. The student must also have earned a minimum of nine credits and have a grade point average of 3.00 in his major or minor field. Students must be recommended by Levy before they can participate in the program, he said. Before a student can participate, his Cooperative Program must be approved by the Academic Dean, Academic Advisor, Department Chairman, Cooperative Program Director, and the University Cooperative Coordinator. According to Levy, both students and employes must file a work report with Levy before the student is given a grade for his co-op work. Students file a "Cooperative Work Report" for each co-op assignment they complete. Employers fill out an "Employer Evaluation of the Cooperative Student" form as well as a "Student Training Period Evaluation." There are many benefits to the students involved in the program. Levy said that co-op education is a future-oriented program. Studies have shown that 80 per cent of the students involved in other co-op programs throughout the country have been hired by the company they co-oped with after graduation. Levy said. Studies have also shown that coop graduates receive more promotions and increases in salary than college graduates not enrolled in the program. Studies show that starting salaries for co-op graduates are nine per cent higher than those of other graduates. Levy said the program also provides financial aid for students. He is asking employees to pay students at least S500 per month but said that he can't promise that. Veterans and students receiving social security are still eligible, for the benefits they receive while working, he said, as they are classified as full-time students. The co-op student may also learn that the career he has planned is not right for him, he said, and find out what he really wants to do with his future. In this way co-op education is a career development program, he said. "Jobs are tight, so experience really helps students," Levy said. "The experience we're providing will be attractive to employers because it is directly related to the student's field." He said that most co-op employers are interested in student motivation and interest. Students are screened by both Levy and businesses to make sure they are ready for the experience and don't fail. Employers also benefit from the program as it is cheaper for them to recruit a co-op student than it is a college graduate. Salaries for co-ops can also be lower than those of college grads. It also provides 44-BooktLEFT: Linda Kollivan timulatet a co-op experience. employers with college graduates already trained for their business. Levy said. UWEC benefits because it gives businesses more contact with the university, familiarizing it with the school's name, Levy said. He said in this way, more businesses may come to the campus recruiting graduates. The faculty benefits by visiting the businesses where the students are cooping and seeing what is being done, Levy said. He said that he is planning to visit the co-op student on the job at least twice a semester and bring a faculty member with him. Levy began working with the program in July, 1976. He said he spends a good deal of his time on the road; contacting companies and trying to get them interested in the program. In the first semester, he talked to more than 93 businesses and industries in Wisconsin and Minnesota, as well as to recruiters who are looking for employees on campus. Many employers have been quite receptive to the program, he said; however, it may take them a while before they can become involved as they must first allocate money to pay for the training and salaries of co-op employees. Levy said he also spends a great deal of time checking out employers to make sure they can give the students supervision and provide them with guidance and education. "This is an educational process," he said, "not slave labor for businesses." There are about 1,000 cooperative education programs in colleges and universities throughout the country, he said. Recently a Federal grant of $10.8 million was given to such co-op programs. Levy said that UW-Eau Claire has the only university-wide co-op program in Wisconsin. Other universities have co-op programs for only a few, specialized departments. All Eau Claire departments, except educa-cation and nursing, which have their own student placement programs, are eligible for the program, he said. He said the entire School of Business and most of the departments in the School of Arts and Sciences are involved in the program. Of 4,200 students that he notified in August, Levy said 700 responded within three weeks saying they were interested in the program. Ten students registered for jobs in January and by the end of the first semester, 45 students were registered and looking for jobs for the summer and fall of 1977. Levy placed six students for the January, 1977 semester in such jobs as auditing for a firm in Milwaukee and working in the personnel office of St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minn. Once placed, it is the student's responsibility to find housing and provide his own transportation. Levy said. He said that both he and employers help as much as possible with housing. Sometimes provisions can be made for students to live in college dormitories. "When trying to place a student, we try to identify his needs and go from there." Levy said. He said, for example, that if a student would like to work in his home town, they concentrate on finding a job there. Levy said that he is pleased with the success of the program so far. "Most people feel co-op is a good idea," he said, "so I can't see our program doing anything but growing."

LEFT: Chancellor and Mrs. Haas relax at the end of the day. Behind a desk in an office in Schofield 138 sits a man discussing a European tour for a musical group with the group's advisor. In ten minutes he will be meeting with the chairperson of the Eau Claire United Way fund-raising committee. An hour later he is invited to a luncheon sponsored by a local television station. This may sound like an exceptionally busy day, but to Chancellor Leonard Haas this is a normal working day, maybe a bit less hectic than usual. Even when Haas and his wife are on vacations unrelated to university functions, they will spend much time at other universities. To Haas, work has become a part of relaxation. Much of his school day consists of meetings, conferring with members of his staff in weekly meetings, sitting in on other staff meetings and meeting with individual members and students. Don't think that Chancellor Haas just sits behind his desk all day. A large portion of his day is spent meeting with students. Even when Haas is busy, he'll make time to talk to students who come in to see him. You'll walk very hesitantly into his office and he will ask you to be seated. You don't know what you're going to say or if you should talk first. Then your eyes meet, he smiles, you calm down and you start to see him as something more than a Chancellor... it's like you've just met a good friend. After that first meeting, Schofield 138 and the man who sits behind the desk become much more personal to you. After this first meeting, Haas always has a friendly greeting for you, whether you're on campus or happen to meet somewhere else. It's amazing how one man can remember so many names and faces! A large part of Haas' day is spent traveling about the state to meetings with the Board of Regents and organizations such as the officers of the West Central Wisconsin Consortium. Haas spends a good deal of his time at university social events. It would seem impossible for Chancellor Haas to find the time to attend forums, concerts and art show openings under this type of schedule. Still, time after time you'll see Mr. and Mrs. Haas at events...everything from crowded international folk fairs to shivering-cold Homecoming torchlight ceremonies. Haas makes time to be with the students. After working in the office all day, Haas will spend time at home reading chronicles, journals and reports on higher education. In his spare time, Haas enjoys gardening or taking walks with his wife. It's difficult to picture the Chancellor perspiring over his own gardening. One might expect to see a gardener doing all the yard work. But Haas spends hours mowing an expansive lawn and tending a small rose garden. Late into the evening the Haases spend time entertaining various student organizations in their home. During the last three years, Haas said, he and his wife have entertained over 850 guests in their home each year. The Haases enjoy being with people. Before guests arrive at their home, Haas seems to make sure he knows the name of everyone who's coming and something about that person. To Chancellor Haas these are the things that are important—personal contacts are what make each day in the life of a Chancellor so worthwhile. Bookv-47Did you find yourself counting your nickels and dimes-figuring just how long you could make your dollar last? Then Financial Aids was a service you needed to use. "A student shouldn't have to terminate his education because of inadequate financial resources," Bob Misenko, financial aids counselor said. Financial Aids provides students with short-term emergency loans, scholarship and job information and financial counseling. They also help students properly complete financial aid forms. Misenko refers to financial aids as "not only a service but a job function." Financial aid counselors contact in-coming students on an individual basis to inform them of available financial help, send letters to continuing students about financial aids and make themselves available to campus organizations for lectures and questions. In addition, the counselors determine how many students are eligible for financial aid and what type of aid they can receive. This complex and time-consuming process is the reason why a "priority deadline" for financial aid applications is set for March 15. The financial aids office, however, is developing a computerized "packaging" service of financial aid applications that will eliminate the additional time needed to process these applications. Financial Aids 48- BooksFood Service Eating, a major student preoccupation, is handled on campus by Professional Food-Service Management, (PFM), a contracted service of the university. On-campus students, assigned to eat at either Hilltop, Crest Commons or the Southwoods Room In Davies Center, has to purchase a 21-meal-per-week food plan. However, Gregory Magill, of PFM, said students only need to eat "10 meals per week in order to get their money's worth" from the meal plan. Off-campus students can also eat in these cafeterias by either purchasing a S25 meal plan or paying separately for each meal. PFM also controls the Blugold Room, University Pub, Little Niagara Inn, Flambeau Inn and on-campus banquets. With the new addition to Davies, the food service was able to expand its facilities. Following the theme of "Main Street", a delicatessen, pizza, ice cream and sweet shops were included in the new addition. More banquet facilities were added in the Davies addition. Booki-49Health Service "The primary purpose of the health service is to provide medical care for the student," said Dr. William Mautz, director of Health Services. Approximately 2,400 visits to the health service are made each year by students and faculty. Staffed by two doctors,three full-time nurses and one part-time nurse, Mautz said the health service is a "busy operation." This year, with the addition of a laboratory, students were able to have mononucleosis, venereal disease, pregnancy and blood tests and blood countsdonefreeofchargeatthehealth service. In previous years students had to pay for these tests. The new laboratory eliminated test costs and also enabled the health service to report test results faster. A nurse from the Eau Claire City-County Health Department gave students lectures on contraceptives, helped distribute contraceptives and kept in contact with the health service doctors. There was also a nurse at Murray Hall available to students from 5 pm to midnight six days a week. 50-Bookt[ You're in a rush between classes and need some information in a hurry. Where do you go? Most students find help at the Lobby Shoppe, UW-Eau Claire's service counter. The Lobby Shoppe, providing telephone or over-the-counter information, is available 16 hours a day to answer questions or requests. In its new location in the Davies addition, the Lobby Shoppe is the place to have posters approved; obtain cards for housing, trading post and ride boards, check out ping-pong and chess sets; rent typewriters and get refunds from faculty vending machines. In addition, the Lobby Shoppe distributes student directories, the Spectator, grade report copies and bus schedules. Students are able to buy newspapers, stamps, matches, postcards, city maps and have Zerox copies made. A student clerical pool moved into the space left by the Lobby Shoppe in the original part of Davies Center. This newly established service is available to students for typing and duplicating papers. After moving into the Davies addition, the Lobby Shoppe acquired a better designed service area to furnish information more efficiently. Davies Center Davies Addition Bookt-51On-Campus Housing To live on or off-that is the question UW-Eau Claire students have to answer every year. Therefore, one of the tasks of the University Housing Office is to help students decide upon the right place to call "home." Housing personnel feel that living on-campus for the first two years facilitates the transition from home to university. Dorm living means receiving all the conveniences of home, away from home. Dorm dwellers are able to get up at 7:30 am and still make their 8:00 class, obtain clean sheets once a week and do their wash for 25 cents. There is more to dorm living than just material advantages. Dorm living, according to Robert Brisiel, associate director of Housing, supplements a student's education. Professional head residents, located in every residence hall, and residence hall assistants (RA's) are available to students with problems and help plan activities. An addition to the dorms this year was a cable television system, carpeted halls and new curtains. The housing office aids off-campus students by compiling a list of available housing and giving advice to students with landlord problems.Looking Back on Sixty years Try to picture it...October 19, 1916. A brisk autumn day, you're standing in a crowd of people by Schofield Hall to participate in the ceremony of the Eau Claire State Normal School. History repeated itself on October 17, 1976 when approximately 200 university faculty, students and alumni gathered to rededicate Schofield Hall—the first buildingonthe UW-Eau Claire campus. Schofield Hall, named after the university's first president, Harvey Schofield, was completed in 1916. Since the completion of the building in 1916 through 1952 all university activities had been held in Schofield Hall. During World War II the building served as a dormitory for 300 army air cadets. "This building has indeed had a remarkable history," Chancellor Leonard Haas said. "Some of our current building constructors have suggested that this building may well out-last all the other buildings on this campus." The most intriguing part of the ceremony was the unveiling of the original cornerstone and its contents. Each item was slowly removed from the cornerstone. Some of the items contained in the cornerstone were a photograph of President Schofield, a photograph of Emmet Horan, the first regent from Eau Claire who worked to establish the Eau Claire Normal School, and a copy of the Legislature Directory of 1919 with a listing of the men who voted to build the next Normal School in Eau Claire. During the ceremony the old cornerstone was replaced by a new one, which contained several new items along with the items from the old cornerstone. Kevin Goode, student senate president, added a microfiche of the 1976 faculty staff and student directory to the new cornerstone. John Jenswold, university archivist, placed a recently published copy of THE HISTORY OF UW-EAU CLAIRE in the cornerstone. Today, Schofield is the main administrative building on campus, but its halls are still filled with the memories of the thousands of students who experienced their entire education in that one building. "We rededicated this building to those who wanted to promote educational opportunity and who understood the meaning and the importance of educational quality," Haas said. "The need is still here today as it was 60 years ago..." Following the rededication ceremony, the facilities of the university were opened to the public. Tours, exhibits, films, and demonstrations were conducted by several university departments. Bookt-S3Student teaching: On the road to a career, students in many programs have the opportunity to experience their future jobs first hand—by taking part in student teaching and interning programs. In order to receive certification as a teacher, students are required to spend a number of hours in an actual classroom as a teacher. This is where they find out what their future is really going to be like. Mary Brcnzel, a senior in Special Education, gained experience student teaching at Bloomer Elementary School in Bloomer. "It's been just great," Brenzel said. "Now I know for sure that I made the right choice—I really want to teach." Brenzel was assigned to her position at Bloomer. Students generally have no direct choice, but arc assigned schools on the basis of available transportation, family responsibilities and other commitments. Brenzel began student teaching with a week of observation—getting to know the class routine and the students. "One of the most important things I've learned is each child is an individual," Brenzel said. "You can't think of them as a group of kids—you have to keep their different personalities foremost in your mind. Each child will react differently, contribute and detract differently, and progress differently. In order to be effective as a teacher, you have to adjust your expectations of each child accordingly." After observation, Brenzel assumed the role of teacher. Under constant supervision, she functioned as the educator. "My biggest surprise was discipline," she said. "I used to talk big—like 'I'll rap the kid.' Now I realize that the same principle holds true for discipline as for learning—in- dividuality. You have to ask yourself why this particular child is misbehaving and then, using what the books taught, and what you've seen, and most importantly how you feel, you try and alleviate whatever is causing the problem. That's the real challenge. But I've found young children to be receptive to learning. They're like little sponges—they're so eager to soak in all the newness of things." Brenzel believes practical experience is essential to any field. Everything there is to learn isn't there in the books, and you can't be sure how you'll react and handle things until you're actually in the situation, she said. Reflecting on her own elementary education, Brcnzql said she wants things in her classroom to be different. "When I was little, if I saw my teacher in the grocery store, I was shocked", she said. "I couldn't believe she actually shopped or did any human things. I want my class to know I am a person just like each of them. If a child loses a tooth, I want to feel he can come and tell me how much the tooth fairy left him. And I want to share my experiences with the kids, too. Two-way communication is essential to effective and meaningful education." All the insight I’ve gained from my experience was a long time coming, she said. Lesson plans and correcting papers are time consuming, and can become all-encompassing if you're not careful, Brenzel said. "Everyday I have to take a little time for myself—get away from all the papers and projects and clear my head," she said. If I cultivate myself and improve and grow as a person, I'll have so much more to offer my class when I am teaching."a taste of the working world Bookt-55• • • To study is to learn By the end of your first week of classes here, William D. McIntyre Library will have become the most familiar building on campus. Starting with English 110 you learn how to use its maze of shelves, books, microfilm machines, tables and xerox machines. The quiet disposition of this building may appear foreboding, but soon you discover a large and very important portion of your college career is spent within its walls. Crammed full of information, the university library contains 334,000 books; 170,000 government documents and 2,400 current periodicals. In addition to this, the library has 500,000 units of microfilm, 125 telephone books, plus a large selection of encyclopedias, college catalogs and bibliographic reference material. For anyone desiring a quiet, though less comfortable study area, the "No Talking" restriction imposed at the Reserve Library is ideal. The reserve, located in the old section of the library, is also the holder of materials, reserved by faculty for 56-Book)limited student use. With a university I.D., readings and old tests can be taken for two hours, overnight, or in three-day intervals, depending on the professor's discretion. The main library features, though not purposely, different temperature floors. These range from the frigid lower level, to the warmer upper floors. Smoking lounges are found on the second through fifth floors and conference rooms can be checked out at the main desk for two-hour intervals. Other sections for special needs are the Browsing Room on the second floor which houses local and national newspapers and current magazines. All floors provide tables for group study, or individual carrels if more privacy is desired. Students desiring data on the state and federal government can find it in the documents section located in the library basement. Copies of Congressional records, supreme court cases, Wisconsin documents and other statistical data are all kept in this area. The age of electronics presents itself in the library's Instructional Media Center (IMC). The IMC, located off the Browsing Room, is designed to promote non-book study. This is achieved through use of cassettes, videotapes, slides, films and filmstrips. There is an extensive record library and appropriate equipment for using all the mediums. Teaching aids, textbooks, pictures, posters and tests can also be checked out at the IMC. Another application of electronic know-how comes in the form of the book check-out system. Books are "sensitized" upon arrival at the library, and must be desensitized before passing through the exit gate. If not, a doorbell-like sound goes off, much to the embarrassment of the would-be sumggler or the forgetful librarian. The library is a member of the Interlibrary Loan Service of Wisconsin, which provides all students and faculty with the opportunity to borrow materials from other system libraries. An ample supply of copying devices for both microfilms and hard copy are also available throughout the library. In 1974, the library added a newsbank which contains newspaper clippings on microfilm. Over the past two years the newsbank has been expanded to contain clippings from Toledo, Miami and Baton Rouge newspapers covering fifteen different subjects. The newsbank was added when it became too expensive to subscribe to a great number of newspapers. Although the library has seen no major changes in several years, it is constantly receiving new books, adding new periodicals, updating the card catalogs and reference materials, and indexing the newest government documents. What is the latitude of Newark, New Jersey? Who wrote the "Star Spangled Banner?" What's the local news from the Polk County Ledger? Next time these questions arise, the place to go is to the William D. McIntyre library. Bookt-57Respect + authority= Mark 8udde, (ABOVE) an RA in Bridgman Hall and Deb Raupp, (RIGHT) an RA in Sutherland Hall strive (or wing unity. You've done it lots of times, in introducing an acquaintance of yours to your family and friends. "This is John Doe, he's my RA." There is a doubletake, and then an astonished, "you're kidding! You don't look like an RA!" "I hate being introduced as an RA, but that comes with the job and you either get immediate respect or abuse," Bridgman RA, Mark Budde said. Budde is a junior, and in his second year as a resident assistant. The biggest challenge to being an RA, Mark said is getting 32 people to get along with each other. Activities such as Happy Hours, volleyball, and picnics help the guys get to know each other and aids in wing unity, he said. Basically, an RA must get respect and authority, but he can't isolate himself. "Your lifestyle is changed and you have to take more responsibility," Budde said. Mark is on duty once a week and gets one weekend off a month. On that weekend, Mark likes to get away from "dormland." In addition to being understanding, patient, and willing to listen, Mark has to be a disciplinarian. Mark said that he tries to use it as something positive, not negative. The best things about the job, according to Mark, is getting to know a lot of different people, and helping freshmen get acquainted. The worst things about the job is getting everyone up at 2:30 a.m. for fire alarms, getting up at 1:30 a.m. to tell the guys to be quiet and giving up some of your freedom. Deb Raupp, an RA in Sutherland Hall, agrees that being an RA commands more respect from others. One of the things Deb tries to achieve is making the girls feel she is on the same level as them. "In that way the girls respect me more and won't purposely try to do things to hurt me," she said. "They treat me as one of the group. I also try to get closer to the girls by making posters and writing notes when they first come at the beginning of the year. I talk to them and let them get to know me." Deb has found that being an RA has made it much easier for her to get along with people. "Because of the job. I've found that though there are so many different types of people, we're all basically the same," Deb said. In addition to helping the girls 60-Student the R.A. formula on the wing, Deb's other duties include dorm duty and making rounds of the halls every hour. Inventories are also taken of the kitchen, laundry room and lounges. Menus and bulletins must be posted. Being an RA has gone quite smoothly for Deb. The only problem she sees is the time commitment. She must be available to the girls, helpful when they have problems and provide activities for them. These things can sometimes interfere with finals and classes. Concerning discipline. Deb doesn't go looking for trouble. "If the girls respect you they wouldn't put you in that situation," she said. "Being an RA hasn't limited me. The only thing I don't like is having to be an example all the time. Somehow, they always know you're an RA wherever you go." Studenti-61Pub camaraderie curses dormland doldrums "Boy, could I go for a beer!" If you're like most students living on upper campus, you're liable to suppress that urge for a nice cold beer when you don't feel like walking all the way to Water Street or when another Wisconsin winter sets in. "The Pub" is right there to serve you. An affiliate of the Food Service, the Pub is managed by Dan "Herb" Herbrand and he is assisted by Dan "Romen" Romenesko. The Pub is open from 7 p.m. to midnight every night. The Pub has Pabst and Schlitz on tap, along with several kinds of soda. The Pub usually sells about six half barrels of beer and 150 glasses of soda a night and the prices are relatively cheap compared to those on Water Street. The Pub employs nine scheduled bartenders and four subs. The Pub also sells "staple" foods such as peanuts, pizza and sandwiches. The final attraction is its atmosphere. The Pub offers foosball and pinball for game lovers. It has a juke box and plenty of room to sit and talk with friends. Since it is so close, the Pub catches people on their way home from the library and those just stopping in for a "quick one" before turning in. I 1The Hill—no way around it!!! The UWEC catalog leaves out one very important detail every year—The Hill. I can understand their reluctance to tell incoming students about it. If they did, there might be a dramatic decrease in enrollment. But we really should be prepared for it in advance. It seems to be unusually cruel and barbarous treatment to just spring it on us when we visit the campus for the first time. I didn't find out about the hill until I came here for freshmen orientation. I stood at the top of the hill, looked down and began to wonder if I wasn't suddenly in the twilight zone, where there was a bottomless hill. I panicked. I hadn't applied to any other school, but I knew that I couldn't come here. There was no way I could walk up and down that thing every day. My first experience with walking up the hill didn't do much to calm my fears. My mother had come up with me for orientation. The two of us got about half way up the hill when I noticed that Mother's face was turning purple and she was gasping for breath. "I think I'm having a heart attack!" she managed to choke as she sat down on the grass at the side of the hill. By the end of the two day orientation, however, I had fallen in love with the campus. Its friendliness and natural beauty out-weighed that monstrosity I would have to walk up and down. Besides, all the upper classmen told me I'd get used to it. I never really did get used to it though. The first week on the hill was miserable. It took me two days before I could walk all the way to the top without stopping to catch my breath. Finally, by the end of the week, the cramps in my calves had disappeared and I could get out of bed in the morning without feeling my leg muscles tighten up and begin to throb. But I never really reached the point where there wasn't some pain involved in the hill. I think most of it was psychological. I would start thinking about classes, or supper, or parties, or anything but the hill. But pretty soon I would feel my backpack press into my lower back and the familiar ache in my lungs. "You are not going to make me tired!" Casp! Pant! "I'm only as far as the steps and already I'm dying. Just don't think about it!" Huff! Puff! It never failed. I was always blurry-eyed and gasping for breath by the time I reached the top of the hill. About the time that I thought I had the hill licked, summer vacation rolled around and I had to start all over again the next fall. The aching muscles, gasping for breath, cursing and wondering, "why oh why didn't I have enough sense to go to a nice flat campus like Whitewater?" Coming down the hill is almost as much fun as going up. It took me a few days to get used to walking with my body slanting forward and momentum building with each step. Eventually t learned the correct way to walk down the hill. My right shoe usually wears out faster and the toes look awfully scuffed, but it stops me from reaching the bottom of the hill at a slow run. The only problem with my brake walk is that it doesn't work too well in the winter when the hill has several strategically placed patches of invisible ice. It didn't take me long to find out that the middle of the road is the safest place to be when walking down the hill in the winter. I also learned to avoid 8:00 classes because there was always a chance that the hill hadn't been salted yet. But no matter how many precautions I took, I usually managed to lose my footing and in my panic grab the nearest arm to keep from falling. I guess it's one good way of meeting a lot of friendly arms. I always admired the students with enough courage to slide down the hill on trays after the first big snowfall. I guess I did enough slipping and sliding on the hill feet first without doing it seat first too. Another thing that has always amazed me is the students with enough courage to bike down the hill. They fly past you wheels whirring and brakes groaning. I'm sure that if I ever did it the only sound people would hear would be a panic-stricken scream. There is another group of hill students who I don't admire at all. They are the ones who play frisbee, or catch a softball at the top of the hill. I watched in amazement as they would over-throw a frisbee and then chase it to the bottom of the hill, climb back up again, throw the frisbee to their partner and then chase it back down the hill. The most incredible experience I have ever had on the hill was walking up when I was drunk. The first time was great. I floated to the top of the hill, I never felt a thing. One minute I was at the bottom, and the next thing I knew I was standing by Murray laughing like crazy. It seemed natural that I would float up the hill every time I was drunk. No such luck. The next two times I crawled up the hill in slow motion. I didn't particularly like to crawl up the hill, so I learned the art of hitchhiking up whenever I had too much to drink. No matter how long it took, or how cold I got or how much my head hurt, I waited for some kind person to drive me to the top. I have come to the conclusion that there are only two ways to beat the hill. The first is to break your leg. I know it sounds drastic, but if you break your leg a man from safety and security will drive you up and down the hill. The other solution is much simpler—move to lower campus. I thought I had solved my problem when I moved. Except I forgot I still had two credits of Phy. Ed. to take. Now, two days a week I get to play my "just don't think about it" game as I race up the hill to make my class on time. Gaspl Pant! —Sue Montgomery Student -6SInvolvement that's IRHC Student involvement with Inter-Residence Hall Council Activities is better this year than ever, according to President John Garaffa. The purpose of IRHC, Garaffa said, is to promote unity between hall governments so they may serve and represent the men and women in the residence halls better. Two members from each residence hall are chosen to represent the hall. Although student involvement is up from previous years, Garaffa said he would like to see more inter-dorm activities to unify the residence hall system. In an attempt to unify hall government throughout the Great Lakes area the UW-Eau Claire branch was host to members from the Great Lakes Association of College and University Residence Halls (GLACURH) Nov. 5.6 and 7. Residence hall officers from Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan and Canada met to exchange ideas on making residence hall life more palatable to the student. In addition to the GLACURH conference, IRHC's activities this year included a Halloween costume dance, a November polka dance, and a December shopping trip to Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis. IRHC also tried to get involved in the Eau Claire community this year. IRHC took part in special community projects, paper and can drives and assisted with the Hunger Day project. 66-SludentiJ-Board emphasizes learning FRONT: John VanDiJk, Norma Bierbaucr, Kay Stepien, Ann Tal-boi BACK: Kathy Schulz. Darla Btr-kett. Nancy Sagen. Pat Breitwener. Discipline administered by one's peers with an emphasis on learning rather than just slapping hands—that's the basic philosophy of the Judicial Board of dormitory residents, according to chairperson Kay Stepien. J-Board hears cases referred to it by resident assistants and head residents who feel the usual means of punishment—fines and formal warnings—are not enough for the offense, or if the accused is a repeal offender. When the accusation is filed, Stepien said, she receives a "discipline complaint" filed by the resident assistant and head resident. This has to be filed within seven days of the action so there's no element of surprise to the accused, Stepien said. The Judicial chairperson then sets the time and date of the hearing, which precedes any action by the board. A "notice of charge and hearing" is delivered to the student by the chairperson 48 hours before the hearing. Stepien said the time and date are flexible, however, to allow the students to appeal if there is a time conflict. At the hearing, both parties are allowed to present their views of the accusation and call any witnesses. The decision is later presented to the student, the penalty is assigned and both parties are notified of their right to appeal the decision. Appeals are handled by the Housing Office. To avoid the possibility of a friend trying a friend, or a Towers resident trying a Towers resident, the accused has the right to request one of those scheduled not be allowed to hear the case, Stepien said. Most campuses have a student-run judicial system, Stepien said. "Ours is unique in that we have a good rapport with the head residents and students," she said. "Head residents often bring cases to us rather than taking them downtown (to the police)." Students generally respect the decisions handed out by J-Board, Stepien said. "We try to be consistent," she said. "There was a time when there wasn't much respect for the board. We try to earn it with consistency of fines. We try to avoid fines that are way out in left field for the same offense." To accomplish this. Stepien said she tries to keep each board aware of what the other boards have decided. The money collected in fines is used for scholarships for dorm residents who have done the most for resident life, Stepien said. A total of S 1.000 has been given every spring since the program began in 1974. J-Board is comprised of six members chosen on a rotation basis from ten members of the Judicial Council. Each member is elected from one of the nine dorms on campus, with two elected from Towers. The board members work out of the Judicial Code, formed in September 1973. The Code is an explanation of the disciplinary responsibility and authority for all dorm residents. This year the Judicial Code is being supplemented by the Student Disciplinary Guidelines. The guidelines were passed by the Board of Regents in January 1976 and approved locally by the Student Senate in September and the Faculty Senate in November. Stodemt-67Senate initiates change This year's Student Senate, under the leadership of President William (Kevin) Goode, worked toward initiating five major changes that affect the academic life and help to insure the rights of the students of UW-Eau Claire. The senate officers, Goode, Vice-President Jeff Obey, and Treasurer Steve Ernst were elected by the student body in February, 1976. One of the changes proposed by the Academic Affairs Commission is the topical minor. President Goode explained, "the topical minor allows the student to design his own minor. This way the student can relate his minor to his major field of emphasis." As a result of the senate's proposal, which they began devising two years ago, students may start to outline their own minor next semester. The commission also drew up an alternative plan for the General Studies Program. A new grading policy, another commission proposal, received favorable appraisal from both the senate and the 2,500 UWEC students polled during registration. The senate accepted the revision. The senate also accepted detailed disciplinary guidelines for students. Obey said that in order for a student to be reprimanded for cheating on a test, for example, the professor must have proof that the cheating occurred and present that evidence to the court on campus. In general, the projects undertaken by the Academic Affairs Commission, include "research, supplying supportive information, and adding advice in all areas that pertain to the academic life of students," according to Dave Fitzgerald, commission head. The Student Life Commission worked toward completing the plans for free legal services to students. The part-time lawyer will be on campus next year and will be funded through the senate's segregated funds. Throughout the year, the work done by the Cultural Commission could be seen by their displays focusing on Black Awareness Week, and the Native Americans' contributions to the history of the United States. They also were responsible for engaging the Forum Speakers like George Gallup Jr. and Pauline Frederick. Movies and concerts were slated by the Social Commission. They brought names like Tom Chapin and Styx to the Eau Claire campus.New activities, new name—UAC Opportunities for better leadership and more tightly-set goals on campus are some of the results of a restructuring process uniting the Social and Cultural Commissions of the Student Senate into the University Activities Commission (UAC). According to Jim Oberholtzer, former social commission on chairperson, the new commission eliminates duplication of some functions, creates new ones, and provides a base for an all-encompassing program for the students. Students are well-acquainted with four of the UAC's committees: concerts, films, Cabin Cafe programming, and bus trips. The commission sponsors two kinds of films: popular and cultural. Costs range from $65 for "East of Eden" to $1,000 for "One Flew Over the Cuckoos' Nest." Revenue from the films goes back to rent more films. Because of the good attendance so far, Oberholtzer said, the cost per student per film is about 13c. Film selection takes about 15 hours. The Cultural Commission handles the foreign films. Those shown are "different," according to Oberholtzer, speaking of the Fellini film "Amar-cord," which was shown in September. The Concert Committee sets up all the concerts on campus, from those in the Arena to the smaller ones held in Schofield Auditorium. These smaller "carpet concerts" are funded by the senate and other concert revenue and are free to the students. Among carpet- concert entertainers this year were Valdy and the Hometown Band from Canada, and Tom Chapin. For the larger Arena-size concerts, Oberholtzer explained that an agent of a group will contact the committee with an open date. The committee will then co-promote the concert with a local promoter who pays the costs. The committee provides a place to hold the concert and receives 10-20 percent of the gate receipts after expenses. Bus trips to cities in Wisconsin were expanded this year, according to commission member Dan Frissora. In addition to the Milwaukee trips, buses now go to Madison and Green Bay on selected weekends. The buses operate on a break-even basis. The project began with independent students who hired a bus from Milwaukee and sold tickets. The Social Commission took over the project and has managed to maintain prices, he said. Before the restructuring process, the only committee common to both Social and Cultural Commissions was the video committee, which handles all the videotapes shown free to students in Davies Center. Besides the well-known functions, the commission also promotes the "common adventure" through the Outdoor Recreation Committee, (ODR) which provides resources for the students to plan their own outdoor adventures such as hiking, crosscountry skiing or camping. Equipment bought by the Student Center is rented out to students at the cost of maintenance, Oberholtzer said. "One of the problems we face is that we have excellent programs, and students are not using the opportunities available to them," Oberholtzer said. "They know about what's offered, but they don't want to go." "Students also don't realize that if they have a good idea for an activity on campus, the commission will sponsor it and help fund it," Oberholtzer said. The commission has facilities for silkscreening and runs the bi-weekly videoloop which publicizes various campus activities. Pat (K.C.) Carlton contemplate « e record butinett. . .

Stud nu-7iOff campus life: a change of pace Apartment living Living in a dormitory is not the only option a UW-Eau Claire student has in choosing lifestyles. In addition to those who live in the dorms, there arc students living in the Ramada, off campus in houses and apartments, those who commute, and even married students. Each of these alternatives to on campus life has its own advantages and disadvantages as well as special opportunities. "It's nice to see older people and little kids," Deb Bade says about off campus living. "Living In a house gives me a chance to meet more people from the community. In the dorms, the only people you see most of the time are college students and no one else. It's a nice change." Bade lives in a house with three other girls about five blocks from lower campus. This is her first year off campus after living two years in a dorm. "The biggest advantage is being able to come and go whenever you want to and to be able to cook and eat whenever you feel like it. Overall, it is more relaxed with very little confinement and no regulations or rules. It's a lot of freedom." One of the few disadvantages. Bade says is that of doing her laundry. Her house has no laundry facilities so occupants must take their wash to a laundromat or to another apartment building. This is sometimes a hassle because they don't have a car. Lack of a car also makes it harder to get around to see friends and shop. Bade finds that she has to try harder to see friends and makes an extra effort to keep in contact with friends. The most important thing about living in a house, according to Bade, is to find roommates that you can get along with. There is much more responsibility and housework and everyone must realize that they have their share to do. 74-StudenttCommuting Saving money and having an escape from academic atmosphere is what appeals most to Cyndy Storm, an other Eau Claire resident and UW-Eau Claire student. Storm lives five miles away from campus and uses the city buses, family car, other friends, or bicycle if weather permits to commute to school. Storm finds that living at home enables her to put herself through school at a lower cost and also gives her access to a car, a part time job, and to eat Mom's food. Storm agrees that living in town restricts her from meeting more people. She also feels more like a visitor to the campus. She doesn't feel like part of the student body and regrets that she is missing out on "good ole college days" camaraderie. So to make up for that she tries harder to meet people through her classes. There isn't as much freedom living at home as there might be if she lived on campus. Storm said. She can't skip classes because her family knows when she does and doesn't go to school. “The best thing about living at home," Storm said, "is that at night I can put my books away and forget about school for awhile. Unless I have some really hectic studying to do. I can escape for a while, the school and the studious atmosphere and relax. If I had the chance to move into a dorm, I wouldn't. I'm satisfied with my situation, but transportation is still the biggest problem." Ramada Inn A compromise between dorm life and campus living is the Ramada. This was the first year that it was switched to complete housing for students. It has a dorm-like atmosphere, but according to Sally Steinkraus and Lisa Sorauf, it is more lenient. Quiet hours and visitation aren't as strictly enforced since it is coed by rooms. Although it is an approximately 30 minute walk to lower campus and a 15 76-SludrnttSludcnlt-77 minute walk to upper campus, Steink-raus and Sorauf don’t mind the distance. "The only time it was a hassle was when the weather was really cold but otherwise it's not bad at all. By bike, upper campus is only five minutes away, Many students have cars, Steinkraus said, so you can get a ride whenever you really need one." As for studying, Sorauf thinks that the rooms are quiet and the upstairs lounge is also handy for studying. The library is quite far away for night studying but again "we can get rides from students with cars," Sorauf said. Although living at the Ramada costs about S100 more per semester than living in the dorms, both Steinkraus and Sorauf agree that it is worth it. Residents are able to take advantage of the pool, sauna, and cocktail lounge. "It's nice to be able to go out for drinks and socialize without even leaving the building. Bands come to play at the lounge and that is nice also," Sorauf said. Living at the Ramada can be a disadvantage to freshmen because they are far from campus activities and the other students, according to Steinkraus, but if you are outgoing and try to meet others, it isn't bad at all. BELOW: CUrc Helm-inUk « j iiudent who lives with her family in Eau CUire. Living at Home Even if Joe Roach didn't live in Eau Claire, he would have to come to School here anyway. Roach has been an Eau Claire resident all his life. He's now living at home while attending school. "I'm very home orientated and I like to be with my family and friends," Roach said. "Living at home also is an advantage because he is financing his own education and it saves money. But according to Roach it's not as much a savings as most people tend to think. This lifestyle gives Roach a more relaxed attitude about school. He feels that college is more of an extension of high school for him. This feeling comes from being an Eau Claire resident. Roach said, and not having as much adjusting to do. Roach said that many college students are overwhelmed and bewildered by the new freedom, the idea of being in college, the size of the school, and the number of people that are here. Living at home docs have disadvantages such as meeting new people, Roach said. Students living in the dorms have an opportunity to meet others, but Roach said that his social life isn't what other students might have. "But if you have an outgoing personality, you'll make the effort," Roach said. "It all depends on how you react to the situation." Overall, Roach feels that he made the right decision in choosing to stay at home, both socially and academically. ZB-SludentiMarried students According to Kathy Gruber, being married and going to school is no different than having a roommate or sharing the responsibility of a house or apartment with several girls. Both Kathy and her husband Bob are full time students at UW-Eau Claire. Kathy is in nursing with one more year to go. Bob is graduating this spring in Business Education. Both have part-time jobs in addition to school. Kathy works at Sacred Heart hospital, and Bob at Eau Claire Equipment Co. and for a professor. They live in the University Village where most of the residents are married students. Why did they decide to marry last May with a couple of years of school still ahead of them? "I like being married and I like coming home to a family atmosphere ' Kathy said. "I'm more happy now that I'm married." The only hassle is that of having different class and work schedules during the day, but evenings and weekends are spent together. Some adjustments of married life, Kathy feels, are two sets of parents and relatives to keep in touch with instead of one and learning to live with each other. "If you want to get married and can do it financially," Kathy said, "go ahead!" h 1Students at work: earning for Rolland, informed the class of the need for tutors. Sherry is employed by the Eau Claire Public School System. Another student, first semester senior, Pete Tittl, works off-campus at the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram newspaper. His duties on the state desk, rewriting or adding information to articles, submitted by correspondents and writing sports stories and obituaries, all give him the practice necessary for his journalism major. He explains that his classes are made easier by the exposure to the newspaper work—and his work goes more smoothly because of his classes in writing and copy-editing. Pete works four mornings and two nights a week, for an average of 25 hours. First semester he also carried his heaviest classload of 18 credits. Pete often puts to use his prior experience which includes the positions of reporter and sports editor on the Spectator. Pete started the job in September, but he applied for it last July when he heard about the opening from another staff member. He plans to continue his work through the summer. The opening of the new Davies Center increased the job market for 15 students and expanded the working area of the current Blugold workers. Freshman Sue Grossman acquired one of the new positions available in the copying center, "Copy Corner." Due to her typing ability of 105 words a minute, she was urged by her business professor to apply for the job in the center. Sue considered the favorable aspects of the job, being able to gain practical experience for her office administration major and earning extra money. College may have been established to prepare people for the working world, but many students have chosen not to postpone the work, but rather combine the two. According to the financial aids office, 1,492 students were eligible for work-study employment. Many other students found jobs on campus separate from the federally founded programs. Others sought employment off-campus. Freshman Sherry Page tutors two Vietnamese boys who attend Park Elementary School on campus. She spends five hours a week helping them become more familiar with the English language. Although Sherry is unfamiliar with the Vietnamese dialect, she understands the boys' frustrations when they try to use a language that is unfamiliar to them. "I find the job interesting since I take a foreign language. I can relate to their problems of trying to put sentences together and choosing which tenses to us." Sherry volunteered for the job when her French teacher, Barbara Carrie Hanson works at a reteptionlti in the Lobby Shoppe in Daviet Cenler 60-Studentslearning Her job includes typing papers for students, copying material on a Xerox machine and other general services. Sue works about six hours a week and she says she has no trouble managing to find enough study time. "The job cuts down on my social life, but not on my studies." At the beginning of second semester, with the addition of the special food shops, and another Blugold lounge, some workers' duties were changed. Junior Sue Schmidt was a cook's helper first semester, occasionally "busing" or clearing tables in the Blugold. Second semester started her permanent job in the Blugold. "In the new part there's a lot more running around," Sue said. Her job includes busing both sections, but she admits there are more people to help. Sue works with four people on the weekends; one person stays at the cash register while the other three prepare food and bus tables. "I enjoy working in the deli and sweet shop most because there are so many different things to do," Sue said. This is Sue's second year on campus and working with the food service. Sue transfered from La-Crosse where she also worked with the food service. The students interviewed are representatives of the hundreds who are employed on and off campus. They experience the satisfaction of a new challenge, of learning and earning money to pay the educational bill. Whatever the rewards, these students are experiencing an aspect of college life that prevails among many students at UW-Eau Claire and other campuses as well.

Students-81Students put their 62 StudcrmStudcntt-B7The alternatives . . . The Street. Most students at Eau Claire can identify with these two words. They mean entertainment, a chance to no out with friends, places to eat, shops to buy gifts, a few places to buy groceries and baked goods. There are people who have had good times there, and will continue to do so. There are, however, other students who've become disenchanted with the street. These people have been able to find reasons why the Street may not be the magical place it was before. The bars are often very crowded, and it's sometimes difficult to get a place to stand. People arc elbow-to-elbow, back-to-back, chcek-to-cheek. It isn't so bad if you're standing next to someone you know, but this leads to problem number two. Some Water Street gathering places accommodate the hustler. When conditions are right, hustlers are out in full force. If you're not in the mood to deal with these people, a night out could turn into a headache. Problem number three is the Street's noise level. There are times you'd like to hear the people talking to you, and you'd like them to hear you. Water Street is a good place for hungry people who don't have much money or time to eat their food once they get it. Most places have an "eat and run" atmosphere. The food may be good, but there seems to be something better to do than sit after the food is gone. Water Street is not a bad place, but some students have found alternatives to it. They've found what they think are better, more enjoyable places to go. One extreme alternative to the Street is Fanny Hill. According to Rhonda Kuchenbecker, a student at 68-Sludenit MOOSE LODGE 1408 WESTGATE SPORTSMAN CLUB 'PorricFroC _ WESTERN SHOP I MILE UW-Eau Claire, you plan to go to Fanny Hill. "You go there for a special night. The atmosphere is somewhat romatic: roses, candlelight and waiters wearing tuxedos. You dress to go there and the atmosphere is much more subdued than a place on Water Street. It's a classy place." "But . . . you should have money to go there. You could take a dollar or two to the Street and that could last for an evening. Not so with Fanny Hill. It usually turns out to be an expensive night, but it's worth it." Studenit-6990-StudentiOff-Campus students like to find places closer to home than Water Street. Brenda Vanderloop, a student bartender at Court N' House, said that the bar is a place to go with friends, it's not a pick-up bar. "There's a mixed crowd there, it's not all students that come in," she said. "Students who are doing their laundry at the laundromat near by will stop for a beer while their clothes are washing. Students will sometimes stop for a beer on their way home from school. It's not just a place where the old men sit all day and watch whoever comes in and out. "You could bring 15 people here to celebrate someone's birthday and there would be room for them. Could you do that on Water Street?" Left Guard and Howard Johnson's are in a good location, especially for on-campus people. According to Mare Hare, a UW-Eau Claire student, places like these don't have crowds like the "Street." You can find a table and have a relatively quiet talk with friends. The places aren't cheap, but it's worth the price you pay. A quiet place to drink, talk and laugh. The atmosphere is a quiet, relaxing one." London Square Mall and Barstow Commons are the two major shopping areas in Eau Claire; both are accessible to students. The mall is on a busline and Barstow Commons is within walking distance for most students. It's possible to spend a whole day shopping and not spend much mon- ey. Exhibits and shows in the Mall are entertaining, and people find these are good places to be with friends. You see people of different ages there. You can leave the campus, schoolwork and its related problems behind for awhile. Going to movie theaters is a way for students to escape from reality and Water Street for a few hours on a weekend night. Going to a movie provides an opportunity to sit back and relax. You don't usually have to cope with noise, crowds and pouring a beer down the back of a new winter coat. People more athletically inclined have found several alternatives to spending time on the Street. Runners and joggers use Putnam Park, even in Siudenu-9192-Sludenii biller cold temperatures. The YMCA indoor tennis courts are a good place for students interested in tennis year-round. Most students play on Friday and on Sunday mornings when the rates are cheaper, said Jerry Huffman, tennis player and UWEC student. These times are set aside primarily for students who are not too expert at the sport, as well as for those whose capabilities are beyond UWEC tennis competition. Also, during the fall and spring, Huffman said, the tennis courts on upper campus and across from the Fine Arts Building are usually packed from sun up to sun down. Students also have the Hilltop Recreation Center (for those who like bowling, pool and an occasional dance) and the McPhee Physical Education Center, for students interested in intramural sports, working out in the gyms or swimming in the pool. People not overly enthusiastic about exercise have found walking through the city of Eau Claire, even to look at the houses, is a pleasant pasttime.A Iasi alternative, and a rather obvious one, is to stay "home," wherever that may be. Even though it’s not possible to hold a party for everyone you know in a dorm room, it is possible to enjoy the company of a few friends in a self-created atmosphere. Off-campus students have the alternative of entertaining in their homes or apartments, if landlords and roommates are willing. If you're still looking for alternatives to the Street, they're not difficult to find. With a little time, some friends and a city map, you could find your own favorite alternative to Water Street. Stud nti-93Cold; colder, coldest: winter '77 Temperatures hit all time low The winter of 77: the burning sensation of frostbit fingers, never forgetting to wear three sweaters along with your long underwear, having your eyelashes freeze together as you walked across the footbridge, the sharp pain that wrenched your face as the wind blew non-stop ... it was a long and unforgettable winter. We weren't alone in our suffering, although forging across the footbridge, with the bitter wind slapping our frostbitten faces (one day in January it was -80 with wind chill), it often seemed we were apart from the world. It was like being abandoned in the glaciers of the north: eternally plodding, with no end in sight, hearing only icy feet pounding over cold concrete and crevices of snow. We weren't alone . . . The entire country was experiencing the jolting realization of a harsh winter. Snow fell as far south as the Bahamas. The citrus crops down south suffered from the unusually frigid weather, and orange-loving students' budgets felt the pain. Students and faculty who, in better times, enjoyed the luxury of a heated car, had to face the fact, they, like most of us, had to walk to school. Cars were stubborn in this weather. Perhaps, more intelligent than the majority, they chose to remain home on the coldest days. And it was cold. January's average temperature was -8 degrees, with an average high temperature of 32, and a low of -39. Seven days of that month it didn't crawl above zero, and eight days the low was less than -20 degrees. The first week of February, temperatures ranged from -17 to about 30 degrees: a heat wave! There were still the eternally optimistic: "This cold air is good for your 94-$tudentsface and figure." "I think the cold airis better for you than hot air." There were beautiful days, don't let this sound totally negative, but mostly they were beautiful, sunny days as long as you were inside looking out. Nowhere was there a refuge from the wintry gust of wind. In February the governor ordered thermostats lowered in state buildings, and the university buildings' temperatures were dropped | to 65 degrees. With the weather had come an increasing drain on energy supplies. The word was conserve. So in classroom students donned sweaters, and even coats, while icy hands attempted to keep circulation moving by frantic note-taking. At home, our fireplace was kept crackling—a welcome warmth—and served a double duty as a popcorn-» popper. Extra blankets piled our beds, and 'feetie' pajamas completed the gear for nestling down for the night. Fortunately, when the 'Siberian winter' descended (as a history professor labeled it), Christmas was past. I'm certain no one would have thrown open the shutters, or put out the fire, even for Santa.

Homecoming, 1976 has slipped quietly into the annals of UWEC history. appropriate word to describe the week's affairs. On Sunday night the week's activities almost started with a whisper when only 75 people attended the opening concert. At the show the Homecoming couples were introduced. The special entertainment for the evening featured the comedy team of Edmonds and Curley and guitarist Chuck Mitchell. Activities quieted down even more until Wednesday night when the five royalty finalists were introduced at the traditional "Yell like Hell" rally. Voting for the King and Queen continued through Friday. Friday evening began with the Varsity Show, which included Jazz Ensemble I and singing statesmen. Following the Varsity Show the moment that everyone had been waiting for finally arrived—the Coronation on the footbridge. They were all there, the five nervous finalists, the Cold Caps performing their torch light duties, the reigning Queen, the spectators and, as always, the Chancellor and Mrs. Haas. In keeping with the low-keyed approach, there was no hoopla, no big fuss. The King and Queen were announced and Jim "Doc" Schlaefer and Cindy Ramage representing Murray Hall were declared the winners. Unlike previous years, the order of the four runners-up was not announced. LIFT: The crowd anxiously aw Jilt the announcement of the king and queen, Jim Schlaefer and Cindy Ramage.

On Saturday, Cindy and Doc reigned over the parade and the game-you remember, the short parade that was under control unlike past years?? And yes, there will be a parade next year. During the afternoon, the Blugolds fell to the UW-Stevens Point Pointers in a bright and sunny, but cool, Carson Park. One wonders if it was in keeping with the air of quietness that seemed to saturate the campus that mid-October weekend. It may have been quiet. There may have been no bonfire. The parade may have been curtailed and the Blugolds may have lost; but if you enjoyed yourself and you have memories of friends, activities and just a good feeling about the whole thing, then it was all worth it, wasn't it? Students-103DECISIONS 1976 The Carter-Mondale Democratic presidential ticket wants to "put the people back in the White House and return to basic values," according to vice presidential candidate Sen. Walter Mondale of Minnesota. Since the Republicans have been in the White House, Mondale said the federal budget has doubled and federal inflation has tripled. It is possible to have a strong defense, and a smaller defense budget, he said. The waste in the present budget must be eliminated. The United States cannot increase defense by wasting money, he said. Other money policies proposed by Carter and Mondale, he said, include a more intelligent federal reserve bank operation, lower credit, more liberal supply of money velocity, and lower interest rates. "The best answer to inflation is production and work." The Carter-Mondale ticket wants to restrain inflation and avoid self-defeating policies. Mondale told the Arena audience. "We want to give an opportunity for every citizen to earn a fair income if they are able to work," he said. "A decent farm income is essential to the survival of rural communities. We want to provide assurance that farmers can earn a fair income in return for what they are called upon to supply." Carter and Mondale, if elected, would encourage the establishment of 85 per cent minimum daily price supports," he said. Mondale also emphasized a pro-family policy. The ticket would give "careful concern that the family is given what it needs to do its own job." The family's job, he said, is to develop human beings in the best way possible. The taxes on median income families must be reduced, he said, and the tax loopholes must be closed. Improvement of educational opportunities was another Carter-Mondale platform. "Everyone should have the chance to enjoy the bounty of human knowledge to the fullest," Mondale said. The new administration would want to make it possible for every American to reach his or her full potential, via student financial aids. 106-Students Democratic presidential and vice presidential candidates Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale won the Nov. 2 election with 297 electoral votes, 27 over the 270 needed.The popular vote totals gave Carter 40,263,549 votes and President Ford 38,512,666. Ford received 241 electoral votes. Carter carried the South and many of the Northern industrial states, while Ford received 241 votes from the Midwest and the Western states. Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.) and Rep. Alvin Baldus (D Wis.) were re-elected to their respective offices. Proxmire received 73 per cent of the vote while Republican opponent Stanley York received 27 per cent. Baldus won by a 137,843 to a 99,041 margin over Republican opponent. Dr. Adolf Gundersen. S«udents-109On Oct. 13, Democrat Alvin Baldus, Third District representative and Republican challenger Dr. Adolf Cundersen, matched issues in a debate sponsored by the Eau Claire and Dunn County's League of Women Voters. The debate was part of a "Meet the Candidates" program which also included candidates for state, county and local offices. At the beginning of his term, Baldus said there was a 12 per cent rate of inflation and a 12 per cent rate of unemployment. There was not enough purchasing power. The administration gave massive tax relief to industry, rather than to the lower and middle classes, he said. Baldus said he believes Congress should try to alleviate unemployment by creating jobs. The private sector can fulfill some of the needs of the unemployed, but it needs government to stimulate it. Baldus attributed interest rates and lack of competition in the marketplace as the causes of unemployment. Cundersen said the Humphrey-Hawkins Bill, supported by Baldus. would allow government to employ all those people who are unable to find employment in the private sector. This bill, he said, would cost $14 million or more. To alleviate the problem of unemployment, the unskilled workers must be educated through vocational and higher education in- stitutions, Cundersen, said. People must have jobs that offer promotion, benefits and security, he said. According to Cundersen, deficit spending and borrowing are driving up interest rates. He said inflation is the cause of unemployment. Government must get out of the business of providing jobs and obtain a balanced budget, he said. If re-elected, Baldus said he wants to continue his work in the Agriculture and Small Business committees. He said he would emphasize working with subcommittees on dairy and poultry, conservation and credit and the family farmer and rural development. As a member of the Small Business Committee, Baldus said he has received many complaints on the excess paper work involved in operating small businesses. He said he would want to introduce a bill which would redefine small business. If elected, Cundersen said he would seek appointments on the Appropriations and Administration committees. By working on the Appropriations Committee, Cundersen believes he would directly involve himself in how tax money flows back to Wisconsin. As part of the House Administration Committee, he said he would be able to work on initiating reforms. Baldus said he favors a com- prehensive national health program. A health maintenance program would reduce health care costs, he said, and eliminate unnecessary treatment. Cundersen, head of the Cundersen clinic in La Crosse, said he is opposed to a national health care program which would be socialized medicine. He said he favors cost containment, preventive medicine, and equitable distribution of doctors. Cundersen said he wants to contain the growth of the federal budget. He said he favors a balanced budget and a healthy economy. Cundersen believes the tax system should be simplified and tax loopholes eliminated for those in the high income categories. Baldus said he wants to work for a balanced budget by 1980. He said he voted for the Congressional Budget Act which placed limitations on federal spending. Baldus said he would like to see new people appointed to nuclear regulatory bodies. He also said he would not favor a moratorium on the proposed Tyrone nuclear power plant. Cundersen is also against a moratorium on the Tyrone plant. However, he said people must be assured the nuclear source of energy and the nuclear waste disposal is safe. 110-Stud«fmVoter turnout was exceedingly high in ward 3C (the UW-campus) on Nov. 2. Out of the 2,364 registered voters on campus, 1,168 voted. There were 488 students who registered at the polls. Ford won in Ward 3C with 727 votes to 360 foe Carter. Because of the heavy turnout, some students waited in line for two hours and the polls did not close until almost 11 P.M.

"What do you mean they're using a gun up there?" "I think it's just part of the presidential campaign." "I'm glad I got one." "They'll never get a needle in me!" What are all these people talking about? Swine Flu—the "killer" virus that was supposed to sweep the country but never really materialized. The above comments and many others were heard quite frequently around campus in the latter days of 1976. To get immunized or not to get immun-ized, that was the question. Swine Flu is a virus strain which was originally isolated in pigs. Human symptoms are similar to those of many other strains of influenza, such as the Hong Kong Flu or the more common A-Victoria strain. In 1975 in Fort Dix, N.J., several people died from swine flu virus. Federal health officials, protecting against another epidemic of the strain, advised in favor of a mass immunization program. But then the controversy began. Many people felt the program was just an election year ploy. Questions were raised concerning the effectiveness of the vaccine. Some people just don't like to get shots of any type. Equally important was the federal government spending $135 million dollars which might have been used better elsewhere. Students here at the university seemed to agree with these ideas, or at least half of them did. There were 5,424 UW-Eau Claire students who received shots during the three-day immunization clinics held on campus in the Southwoods Room of Davies Center. Instead of a hypodermic syringe, the shots were administered with a high-pressure vaccine "gun" taking less time and being more comfortable than a regular hypo. The guns were operated by trained technicians from the Eau Claire Police Department. Public confidence in the program was growing and many more people were starting to get their shots. The elections were over and most of the controversy was dying down. But in late December, the program was brought to a screeching halt due to an unforeseen circumstance. The first case of the Cuillan-Bare Syndrome, or to put it more simply, paralysis of any or all parts of the body was detected. Approximately 100 people who had received Swin Flu shots also contracted the Guillan-Bare Syndrome. Although these people recovered from the paralysis, the program was cancelled indefinitely by a government order. Swine Flu shots began again in 1977 for the benefit of the elderly and the ill who might suffer from the harsh winter and contract the Swine Flu while their resistance was low. However, the Swine Flu program never really regained its original full-swing status. IM-StudcnttCall RIGHT: K h UfT bi i q v V pottom un.

The bi-annual blood drive, sponsored by APO and conducted by the Eau Claire chapter of the American Red Cross and a St. Paul nursing staff, benefited Leukemia patients in the St. Paul area. The quota for this particular drive (180 pints a day) was easily surpassed. The Red Cross received a total of 735 pints for the three days. Verna Johnson, blood program chairperson, said mid-term exams and class schedules caused an inconvenience for students and many of them missed their scheduled donation time. "It was hard to avoid because of class times and tests," Johnson said. "We had time slots every 15 minutes and that didn't agree with students' free time. We just told them to come in another time." Johnson said that, considering the circumstances, the response of students on campus was great. She said many of the students didn't know where the blood was going or how it was to be used, but were still willing to donate. The Eau Claire blood drive for St. Paul hospitals began about 18 months ago. Hospitals got help from volunteer pilots, willing to fly units in from areas outside the St. Paul area. Johnson said for leukemia patients with internal bleeding, the blood must be used within four hours after being drawn. Johnson said that the St. Paul group visits Eau Claire four times a year. Another was made Jan. 10 through 14. Groupi Greeki-1S1Requiem for a Torncid A fraternity gathering »ha» turned out to be a mini-Woodstock attended by an estimated 8,000 people...A party that was never advertised outside the city, but always brought in a flood of students from all over the state...that was TORNADO WATCH. In late September, the Senate took legislative action against any organisation sponsoring a destructive or uncontrollable event. As a punishment, the organisation would lose its university affiliation. Although neither Tornado Watch nor TKF (who sponsored the event) is specifically mentioned in the bill, most of the discussion centered around the Watch. The Senate later established panel to organize open hearings on the subject, inviting students, bar owners, city officials, and members of the community to voice their opinions. Some senators were supporting the hearings so that the Senate would have knowledge of all viewpoints on the situation and possibly change its policy. TKE hoped for the same thing. The fraternity has repeatedly defended itself by disclaiming responsibility for the distrubances on Water Street. Former TKE president Rich Ambroo-kian told the Senate that TKE has run the Watch just fine, and that it was not justified to claim that "the TKF's were responsible for what happened on Water Street on the same day that Tornado Watch took place. Although TKE members fought the issue basically on the grounds of right and wrong, an underlying factor was money. The profits that TKE grossed off the Watch were the staple of its budget, and without that revenue TKE would be out of business just as if it has lost its university affiliation. Students who had attended the Watch had varying opinions of the event. Some felt that it should be ended—some felt that it should live on, with some changes made to satisfy the administration and the community. One participant said that the idea was a good one: "The idea of joining thousands of other people drinking beer and looking up at the sky is great. But when it gets violent, that's not good.” Others had suggested a change in the Watch hours, blockades on Water Street, or the closing of the bars. Despite the hearings and other attempts to salvage Tornado Watch, the members of TKE voted 60-40 on January 26, 1977, to cancel Tornado W'atch. Michael Boekhaus, TKE president, attributed the decision to cancel Tornado watch to lack of student support and community pressure. oro WatchStudents Tour Europe RIGHT: The Roman ruin . 1$4-Groupt G eek» Sometime late last September I decided to go on the European art history field study sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. About two dozen other students from UWEC, accompanied by Prof. Tom Lilly of the art department, also decided to take the trip. Months later in late December I was sitting in the International terminal of O'Hare airport. Waiting. Gradually over 120 students from various universities in the Wisconsin system waited with me for our estimated time of departure: Tuesday, Dec. 28, 7:30 p.m. C.S.T. We continued waiting through the night. Wednesday, Dec. 29, noon: We were airborne after sleeping a few hours at the local Howard Johnson's, courtesy of an airline who doesn't deserve a plug in this story. After several thousand miles and a time change that added seven hours to our C.S.T. systems, we arrived in Luxembourg City. After a few hours sleep, lunch and a bus tour of the city, we were let loose on the streets of Luxembourg, quickly learning to speak with our hands. We left Luxembourg City by train that night riding in couchettes, sleeping cars each with six berths. It is a generally accepted fact that cou- chettes in northern Europe are cool and often cold. AUCONTRAIRE. I managed to inadvertently suffer the next 21 hours in a nice hot and stuffy one with five fellow Eau Claire travellers. I also inadvertently discovered there was no portable water on board. Fortunately a couchette comrade had the foresight to bring a bottle of wine aboard. After climbing, descending and twisting through the Alps, we stopped briefly in Milan, Italy, where the most memorable encounter I had was with a native gentleman who walked up to me and said, "Hello. You American. You want to buy something." He said it confidentially, more like a statement than a question. Possibly he was an insurance salesman. I didn't buy anything. Hours later it was New Year's eve and we were in a Roman hotel watching fireworks from the roof. A party followed, the highlight of which was watching Antonio the waiter kiss virtually every woman from our tour group in sight, running from one to the other faster than a Roman taxi turns a corner. Finally some of us submitted to sleep as jet lag began to catch up. In the morning, some of us made the bus tour of the city on time. We touredthe ancient ruins in the heart of the city; the colliseum. You've all seen pictures of them; so had we. But when you stand inside this huge colliseum and think of gladiators fighting to a thumbs up thumbs down decision or recall the mock sea battles that some historians claim occurred in the flooded colliseum, it makes you wonder how you can justify sending a 3 by 5 inch photograph of it home to mom and dad. I couldn't do it. Additional tours in Rome included the catacombs, the Vatican museum with its incredible collection of frescoes, St. Peter's Cathedral and the Trevi Fountain, considered one of the most beautiful in the world. We saw it after someone had dyed the water a Technicolor green —presumably a New Year's prank. Though art was the anticipated pleasure of our stay in Italy, the superb food was unexpected. I almost always dined in a small group of four or five for the early afternoon meal...far less of a chance of perpetuating the ugly American image still prevalent and understandably so. Red wine, a course of pasta, meat, maybe a salad then fresh fruit. Two hours later we would leave saying "gracia" and smiling. We Americans with the "hurry on down to..."drilled into our consciousness learned something from this sensible approach to eating. Back aboard the train again and a few hours later, we arrived in Florence, a beautiful city. A sunless sky illuminated the muted yellows, reds and greys of the buildings and streets. Svelte Italians, dark complexioned with close-fitting, somber-colored clothes and high gloss shoes, slowly walked the Ponte Vecchio. It was the only bridge in the city not bombed to destruction in WWII. Today it is closed to automobile traffic. Jewelry and other shops line the streets. After three days of pounding the Florentine cobblestone, dodging tiny cars, shopping in the open air markets where it is an insult not to haggle over the price, and taking long, appreciative looks at the Renaissance art including Michelangelo's DAVID, we boarded yet another train to Germany. Since I mentioned our many train rides, with one yet to come, I should probably tell you what went on during these long hours, at least as far as my loyalty to acquired friends on this trip allows. One of the things people did was sleep, usually restlessly...or drink Italian wine or beer...or look out LEFT: The tutur of DAVID In Florence BELOW: WWII concentre lion cjmp in Dachau, Germany. windows...or ask; "Where are we?"...or play word games...or shoot photographs of blurring mountains ...or estimate how many hours we would be aboard trains. Once in Munich, we were shuttled into the heart of the city. Some of the more memorable times were enjoyed sipping heady beer in the Hofbrauhaus, the scene of some of Hitler's early harangues and viewing a modern art gallery after the pleasant but perpetual bombardment of classical art in Italy. But the strongest image of Germany was impressed in my mind during a side trip to Dachau, site of a WWII concentration camp. A layer of snow covered the grounds when we were there. Cement foundations outlined large rectangular shapes on the ground, the remnants of the barracks of slaughtered thousands. People walked between the rows of barracks quietly; there was really nothing to say. A sign, in four languages said, "Never Again." With a final train ride out of Germany, a plane connection in Luxembourg, a layover in Iceland and six hours flying into a sun that never set, we landed back in the States. —Lee Schmidt Groupt Greeks-155Speaker strategy spells success UPPER RIGHT: Mark Schmidt.

The forensic and debate team has completed another successful year under the direction of Grace Walsh and Robert Lapp. A member of the Pi Kappa Delta Fraternity, the team travels all across the United States for competition purposes. Students participate in one or more of the available categories: oratory, extemporaneous, dramatic duo, poetry, prose, broadcasting, after dinner, salesmanship, impromptu, original literature, and informative speaking. Debate is in its own subdivision of forensics. Its competition is not intermingled with the other categories. In its 33 year history, the forensic team has captured 20 state championships and four national ones. The team has gone to the National Debate Tournament eleven times. According to Lapp, the team went to 35 meets across the nation this school year. Their travels took them to Illinois, Washington, D.C., Nebraska, Seattle and Virginia, as well as tournaments within the state. In 1976, UW-Eau Claire hosted the National Interstate Oratory Championships, the oldest speaking competition in the United States. This was the first time it was held in Wisconsin in its 114 year history. Eau Claire also hosted a speech meet this year. The 33rd annual Eau Claire meet started the same year the forensic team was formed. The forensic team sponsors clinics during the year and also hosts conferences and tournaments for high school students. They apply their talents through service programs for religious and civic groups by giving after dinner speeches at local banquets 156-Group GreeksKinship—it's kid's stuff Kinship is a program in Eau Claire County designed to provide companionship for children by developing a one-to-one personal relationship between adult volunteers and children. The children are from singleparent families or families with special needs. In January, 1976, university students formed a branch of Kinship in an atttempt to organize transportation and group activities, Mike Monfort, former campus Kinship president, said. Monfort said that while group activities have been somewhat successful, not enough students are working together as groups. "A group of 8 or 10 of us have gone to hockey games or roller skating." he said. "The kids had a great time and so did we. The students are advised by Joseph Hisrich, a UWEC sociology in- structor, as well as by the Kinship board. Monfort said. The student officers of Kinship on campus are members of the county board. Kinship on campus has grown to 80 students working one-on-one with a kinschild, he said. Kathy Schneyer has been offering her friendship and companionship to her kinschild, Michelle, since January, 1976. Kathy said she has tried to get together with 9-year-old Michelle once a week except during holidays and summer vacation. Michelle's mother, who is divorced and works full time, joined Kinship in hopes of finding companionship for her daughter, Kathy said. "Michelle's mother has been very cooperative," Kathy said. "She drives us to some of the places we go and often picks up Michelle." Kathy, a special education major, said that when she was assigned ISS-Croupt CreektFAR LEFT FRONT: Pamela Card, Liu Schroeder, Kelly Krumeruuer, Karla Krumen-auer. Moa Nguyen, Bill Wood.

"Kinship tries to help us out with the cost as much as possible," she said. "Although we are encouraged not to spend too much money, Kinship stresses companionship, not gift-giving." Of all the things Kathy and Michelle have done together, Kathy said Michelle talks most often of swimming at the YMCA. She said they've also gone ice skating, roller skating, biking and shopping at the mall. "Shopping at the mall was kind of a bad time," she said. "There was a dog display and I kept losing Michelle. I would find her holding some dog; the owners were usually pretty mad." Kathy said she and Michelle don't always do special things. Sometimes they just get together at Kathy's room in Oak Ridge and play games or do laundry together. She said companionship was the most important thing. Kathy said before she left for vacation she and Michelle promised to write to each other during the summer and planned a contest to see who could get the darkest tan. Kathy said she and Michelle have had their ups and downs in the time they have been together. Kathy had to get used to Michelle's aggressiveness and attention-seeking, she said while Michelle had to adapt to Kathy's restrictions and discipline. Michelle may not need Kathy's special companionship for much longer. Kathy said Michelle's mother is getting married in the spring. She isn't sure if Michelle will stay with Kinship after the wedding. Groupi Gfeekt-1S9The story of the South Pacific 162-CreatoriSet on a tropical island during the height of the Pacific campaign of World War II, Rodgers and Hammer-stein's "South Pacific" was portrayed to sellout audiences Sept. 29 through Oct. 3 The story of South Pacific involves sailors, marines and nurses on a temporary base, isolated from battle. Two classic love affairs develop—one later disrupted by American ideals of "ethnic purity." Karen Wartchow plays Nellie Forbush, a native, sympathetic nurse torn between her love of a Frenchman and her inborn disgust for his former life style. As Emile de Becque, Jeff Roch played the part of the Frenchman. Chuck Parrish was Joseph Cable, a brave, young Philadelphia soldier upset by his love for a native woman, Liat. A refreshingly good performance was given by Don Hodgins as Luther Billis, a scheming con artist who keeps every soldier on the island busy with one of his money-making projects. The tropic musical was directed by David Morgan and was under the orchestral direction of William Henley. A mixture of both humor and drama, the story of "The South Pacific" is an enlightening experience. Creatort-16J"Crucible" players cast bewitching spell On Nov. 17 through 21 the UW-Eau Claire Theatre Department presented Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible." Director Wil Denson was able to capture the realism of the 1692 witch hunts and witchcraft trials in Salem, Massachusetts. The actors were able to create thoughts of doubt and distrust in the minds of the audience—especially when Abigail Williams, played by Lynda Stertz, started accusing half the women in Salem of practicing witchcraft. John Proctor, played by Don Hodgins later dismissed Abigail from his home for her insane comments. Vicki Amador, who played the role of Elizabeth Proctor fit the role of a sensitive and very generous woman. Mary Warren, the ardent dreamer, was played by Mary Timmerman. The final Puritan touch was added by Art Moss who played the Reverend John Hale. The cast, through a great cooperative effort, portrayed each role with the skill and precision that makes "The Crucible" an exciting experience. 164-Crwtoc Each year during second semester, the departments of music and theater combine their talents in the production of an opera. It is a unique art form, combining music, acting, dance and literature into a single artistic experience. This year's production, "The Merry Wives of Windsor," maintained high musical quality under music director Richard Johnson and conductor Rupert Hohmann. Wil Denson directed staging, Wayne Wolfert designed the sets, and Bill Baumgartner supervised costuming. The original libretto based on Shakespeare's comedy of the same name, this particular translation and cutting was done by Joseph Blatt in 1956 for students at the University of Michigan. The music was composed by Otto Nicolai and first performed March 9, 1849. The action centers around the romantic exploits of the rogue. Sir John Falstaff (Kevin Peuse). The objects of his attentions, Mrs Ford (Nancy Conner-Riege) and Mrs. Page (Deb Schmidt) lead him through a series of schemes which leave their husbands (Scott Knight and Rick Diehl), baffled. A subplot also runs through the play. The Pages' daughter, Ann (Dor-inda Van Beek) is being courted by three suitors—the bashful Slender (Jim lliff); a French physician, Dr. Cajus (Brad Myers); and Ann's true love, Fenton (Mark Hickman). After a series of escapades and much confusion, Falstaff repents and is forgiven, and Ann is united with her true love. Blatt's translation uses minimal spoken dialogue to keep the plot loving. Aria and recitative expand on plot details to show off the singer's vocal qualities and range. The opera's biggest asset, both in its composition and in this production, is its musical unity, which flows continuously from beginning to end and does not compete with the vocalists. UWEC presents "The Merry Wives of Windsor" Creators-16S"The Rimers of Eldritch" expose human characteristics In his ARS POETICA, Aristotle wrote that one function of the theater is to act as a vehicle for the audience to purge its emotions through the action of the play. If this is so, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire university theater production of Lan-ford Wilson’s play, "The Rimers Of Eldritch," performed in Riverside Theater March 2 through 6, served this purpose. The action takes place in Eldritch, once a prosperous mining town in the Midwest, now populated by about 70 persons. Gossip flows freely—gossip about Cora Groves. (Julia B. Dums), a cafe proprietor who "keeps" a truck driver around the place, and about Skelly Manor (Norm Schroder), an old sheep herder who is feared and scorned by the community because of his peculiar ways. The townspeople idealize a local boy who was killed in a race car accident, his legend living on to haunt his younger brother, Robert Conklin (Dave Inloes). The younger Conklin will have nothing to do with cars, and befriends Eva Jackson (Bambi Riehl), a 14-year-old crippled girl. The pair finds themselves in an inevitable situation, and Skelly, attempting to defend Eva, is mistaken for her attacker and shot down by Nelly Win- drod (Vickie Amador), whom the jury finds not guilty. The prophecy constantly repeated by her senile mother, Mary Windrod (Eva Roupas) that "blood will be shed," is thus fulfilled. Under the direction of William McDonnell, assistant professor of speech and director of interpreters theater, the actors skillfully expose the strengths and weaknesses of the human character. Some of the "not-so-nice" aspects of the human psyche are allowed to surface and be acted out. Riverside Theater's thrust stage moves the action closer to the audience, heightening the feeling of participation. 166-CreatorsA talk with Bogdanovich He wore a dapper grey suit, a classy bow tic and an impish George Burns smile. The voices were that of Jimmy Stewart and James Cagney. At times you could become so caught up with the voices and mannerisms that you forgot who was in front of you . . . film director producer Peter Bogdanovich. It was like watching a father telling his daughter an entertaining bedtime story. Bogdanovich has entertained the national populace over the last five years with such offerings as "Paper Moon", "What's Up Doc", "The Last Picture Show", and his current movie, "Nickelodeon". He continued his entertaining way Feb. 9 at a Forum presentation in Schofield Auditorium. The title of his talk was "Conversation with Peter Bogdanovich, Subject: The Movies". I went to the show expecting to hear a well-rehearsed speech about some facet of Hollywood, which is exactly what I didn't get. The whole speech WAS a conversation with Peter Bogdanovich. Bogdanovich began taking drama lessons at age 15. His main interest, however, was in directing and writing. He directed and produced a series of plays off-Broadway in the early 1960s and launched his career as a writer for films and filmmakers. He contributed regularly to Esquire magazine and in 1964 was asked to do a quick (and ghosted) rewrite on a script for the first popular motorcycle movie, "The Wild Angels." In 1971, he directed a poetic drama about a dying town in western Texas, "The Last Picture Show.” The film received eight Academy Award nominations and was the sensation of the year. It also established Bogdanovich as a major movie director. His impromptu talk began with various film clips of flubs and mistakes made during the filming of "Paper Moon" and "What's Up Doc." Bogdanovich appeared on stage afterwards and began his tales of humorous happenings during his ride to the top. He was very at ease as he spoke and established an immediate rapport with them. He entertained with imitations of Jimmy Stewart and James Cagney; the voice inflection was perfect and the mannerisms jibed exactly with the character being portrayed. Bogdanovich did have a few comments on Hollywood as a whole. "I feel movie people are getting very self-conscious these days," he said. "Everyone is trying to make that blockbuster movie every time a movie is made. Spontaneity is a much better attitude to have." — John Johnson Creators 167Shanker solves labor problems With a slight Eastern twang to his voice, Albert Shanker told the audience that collective bargaining is the American way of solving labor problems. Shanker, speaking at a Forum special Oct. 12, seemed slightly ill at ease and was not helped by the faulty microphone which disrupted the early part of his speech. Quickly recovering, he slipped into a refrain that he knows very well: that public employe unions have the right to collective bargaining. Shanker is well-informed on the subject. He is president of the American Federation of Teachers and vice-president of the AFL-CIO. And he has been carrying his fight across the land. Speaking in Schofield, Shanker said the progress of public employe unions lags behind the public sector and pointed to a "twisted sense of professionalism" as one of the causes. "Teachers have been brainwashed into thinking if you are interested in making more money you can't be interested in the children or the subject," Shanker said. This quickly brought a murmur of approval from the audience. After outlining the rationale behind collective bargaining, Shanker told the capacity audience in Schofield Auditorium why there is a need for public employe unions and what the reasons for collective bargaining are. "After World War II the superior position teachers had once held eroded," Shanker said. "Then teachers realized they could gain support during the civil rights movement when they saw violations of the law being applauded." He said the grey areas in education, are whether government should allocate more money to universities and colleges, as well as change admission policies for students. He noted that these conditions are not negotiable under contract. Shanker summed up his speech by saying the public employe unions must be part of the broader labor movement. Shanker delivered his message with a steady force that never failed him. He knew his ideas and presented them in a manner that made the audience take notice. And well they should. For they were teachers and teachers-to-be themselves. —John Johnson 16A-CtMtonFrederick Questions U.N. The tall, statuesque lady with an air of authority commanded the attention of the entire audience. With a calm, quiet demeanor, Pauline Frederick was quick to get the spectators' interest during a University Forum presentation November 8 in Schofield. Frederick's speech was entitled "The United States and The United Nations" and she obviously enjoyed pointing out what she considered shortcomings of the United Nations and the United States. She emphasized that the United States, like the United Nations, should concentrate on world social and economic problems rather than spending billions of dollars on national defense and peddling arms to foreign countries. "The United States is first in supplying military weapons to other countries," Frederick said. "The superpowers spend $300 billion annually on guns and preparations for war. Only $15 billion goes to improve the conditions of the poor." Frederick believes the only hope for the future depends on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons that would otherwise lead to a nuclear war. She felt this must be accomplished by a better foreign relations policy. She also launched a scathing attack against the foreign relations policies of the United States, saying that "the international situations of the United States are currently in limbo and detente is a big joke in the Kremlin right now." But Frederick did not contain herself to talking only about the U.N. and the United States. She was a moderator during the televised presidential debates between President Ford and Jimmy Carter, the first presidential debates since 1960. Frederick has strong views toward the American election process. "There should be a serious study of the entire election process," Frederick said. "Candidates are running for office like panting com- muters after a bus. Great offices no longer seek candidates of a high caliber." Frederick kept her calm assurance all evening and afterwards, at a coffee and discussion get-together, she resumed her quiet tirade against the United States. She made clear that she loves her country but doesn't agree with all the policies of the government. Frederick was the NBC correspondent to the United Nations for 23 years and is currently the International News Analyst for National Public Radio. She has received many honorary degrees and awards for her contributions to International understanding and has been named to the Journalist Hall of Fame. For two successive years Frederick was included in a Gallup Poll of the world's "Ten Most Admired Women." --John Johnson Creator -169National Theatre of the Deaf Have you ever "seen" the poetry of e.e. cummings being performed? You did if you attended the March 1 performance of the National Theatre of the Deaf (NTD), one of this year's Forum Series events. According to production stage manager Paul Bennett, the NTD was formed to fill two needs: 1) the need for an outlet for the creative energy of deaf actors; and 2) the need for theater adapted to deaf audiences. The group was formed in 1965, and under the direction of David Hayes, is part of the Eugene O'Neill Memorial Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. The NTD communicates with a visual language —movement and sound perceived as a single impres- sion. Performances are a blend of "signed" speech, spoken and sung English and pantomime that combine to form a unique theater experience. Works of poetry and drama are performed simultaneously in signed and spoken English (three of the 15 company members are hearing). "Signed” language uses a single gesture to indicate a word or thought, as opposed to fingerspelling, in which individual words are spelled out letter by letter. The program included Anton Chekhov's "The Harmfulness of Tabacco," in which NTD actors Patrick Graybill and Robert Blumenfcld sensitively recreated the emotions and movements of an elderly man who is trapped in an unfulfilling lifestyle. A bare stage and formal evening dress enhanced the bare expression of emotion contained in "Children's Letters To Cod" (compiled by Eric Marshall and Stuart Hamplc) and poetry by e.e. cummings and Robert Frost. The staging of Gertrude Stein's opera, "Four Saints In Three Acts," with music by Virgil Thomson, complemented the abstract nature of the work. Stein's free language was expressed concretely with large movements, vivid costumes and an ornately painted set. All of these factors, plus the company's high energy level, combined to offer a unique experience: exposure to a "visual language." — Margaret Helminiak 170-CreatorsCreator -171BFA: attaining professionalism UW-Eau Claire is one of the colleges in Wisconsin that offers the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree program. This program provides students with a chance to display their artwork in the Foster Gallery in the Fine Arts Center on campus. A BFA show features the best and most recent work of three or four student artists. According to Charles A. Campbell, art department chairperson, the advantage of the BFA degree is that the student is able to study one type of art in depth, or take 20 credits in areas such as: sculpture, painting, metal work, design, prints and drawing, ceramics and fibres. The other two schools in the state that offer BFA degrees are UW-Milwaukee and UW-Superior. Campbell said the BFA shows, which are free, attract many viewers. "I think we had a head count; of 26,000 last year," Campbell said; "that's about 2,600 per show. About 10 per cent of the shows at the gallery are BFA; they are very popular." The BFA shows are held at the end of each semester. About 10 people are involved per semester, Campbell said, and approximately 20 people take part in the BFA shows every year. In the first semester, 1976-1977, five people had their art on display: Scott Holtorf, Mary Jo Stranskas, John Webber, Ralph Wolfe and Frank Zetzman. The Webber-Zetzman exhibit ran through the week of Dec. 12 and the following week the Holtorf, Stranskas and Wolfe exhibits were shown. The Webber-Zetzman exhibit included a man wearing a sheepskin, atop a wooden box; at his toes was an eggshell seemingly crawling on two loon's feet. The artists themselves were live exhibits: one wore an exotic, vegetarian headdress of squash, radishes and greens, while the other artist was dressed in a white painter's outfit with a paint-smeared cloth and a brown hat. This show included a man wear- ing a mask of orange squash, lying on his back in a pile of sand, seemingly enveloped in a garden, as greens and vegetables seemed to cover him. The man's face was not visible, nor was the trunk of his body; just his arms and legs could be seen. Webber said that his work up to this time was kind of a narration, a type of life story in sequence. "It's kind of my diary," Webber said. "I see my work as a collection, not a production." Webber and Zetzman both agreed that their work at this show was typical of their attitudes and was intended to get a reaction from the people seeing it. "They either loved it or they hated it," Zetzman said. Campbell said modern art is changing as the lines between standard types of art become less distinct. "There are as many things going on in art as there ever will be," Campbell said, "and our students reflect that in their views." John Webber and Frank Zetzman exhibit a photo of themselves entitled, "Campaign for World leaders" In their BFA show. Creators-172Foster Gallery: A means of communication One typically thinks of an art gallery as a large, empty room in which works of art are displayed. However, WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY also lists the following as a definition of gallery: a long apartment serving as a means of communication to others. The University Fine Arts Center Foster Gallery embodies both defini-tions. It is, primarily, a large, bare room in which works of art are displayed. However, when observing visitors browsing through the gallery, the second definition comes to mind. Anders Shafer, gallery director, said that the gallery committee, in selecting exhibits, attempts to choose artists "with well-established reputations as well as younger artists who are doing innovative work in their fields." Working with an approximate annual budget of $14,000 (allocated from student segregated fees), the gallery committee, composed of six art department faculty members and five students, selects an average of 11 exhibits for the year. This includes an annual faculty show in the fall and student show in the spring. Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) exhibits at the end of each semester, and a spring semester showing of two or three selected faculty members' work. The gallery, then, provides a place for students, faculty and area artists to show their work, as well as for outside exhibits. It is also a valuable resource for students, faculty and the community for gaining exposure to art. According to Shafer, 27,500 persons visited the gallery between mid-September and mid-May last year, up 2,000 from the previous year. This year's schedule included several exhibits who use their medium in an innovative way. Spanish artist Joseph Grau-Garriga, whose weavings were on display Oct. 17 to Nov. 10, uses fiber as sculpturc--as a textural medium rather than as a flat surface. Clinton Hill, a painter who was on campus for discussions with students, layers Fiberglas on a gesso-coated canvas and applies acrylic paint with large brushes. His work was displayed Nov. 14 through Dec. 8. Another unique exhibit was that of Lucas Samaras, on display Jan. 16 through Feb. 9. His phototransformations are polaroid that have been chemically treated. Sam Wang's photo-silk screens, which combine photographic and silk screening techniques, were exhibited in conjunction with the Samaras works. The Foster Gallery is one unit of the university; it is a place to communicate, to use as a learning resource, and to broaden one's view of the art world. Omiots-173Pohl invents the future On Jan. 31 forum speaker Freder-ik Pohl, a popular science fiction writer, said that several concepts invented by science fiction writers are either in the process of coming true or have already come true. Science fiction has led a nuclear physicist to work toward interstellar space travel, Pohl said, and another scientist to work toward creating a robot. "While we haven't seen actual robots," he said, "we have seen things which may lead to them." He described an experimental machine with arm-like appendages that had been programmed to plug itself in, charge up its batteries, unplug itself and move about a small room. When it senses its batteries running low, it moves back to the electrical outlet and plugs itself in again. Pohl has invented the future in more than 50 books, including such classics as "The Gold at Starbow's End," and "The Space Merchants." Pohl co-authored "The Space Merchants," a satirical look at a future society controlled by the advertising industry, with C.M. Kornbluth. Science fiction is stories about the future, Pohl said. It is not about things that have happened or will happen, but about what might happen, he said. Science fiction is the best wjy I know to look at our world objectively, from the point-of-view of people with a different heritage and biology, he said. It gives people the opportunity to see how accidental it was that they are what they are and how transitory this seemingly static world is. Pohl said that he does not believe in flying saucers or ESP. If he believed they were fact, he said, they wouldn't be science fiction. Science fiction has become respectable in the past few years, Pohl said. People used to have to hide a science fiction magazine or book if they were reading it, he said. Now science fiction books are becoming rare collector items, science fiction courses are being taught, and writers arc being invited to speak at campuses. There are about 500 science fiction writers in the United States, Pohl said, and about 500 more throughout the world. According to Pohl, in East Germany and Russia science fiction is one of the few literary forms that allows social criticism. Pohl jokingly gave the audience the two great secrets to becoming successful science fiction writers. He said the first step is to write, to put words on paper. The second step is to send the story to someone who might publish it. —Sue Montgomery 174-CreaiofiAgility, poise . . . LIM Do You remember her name? She's Diane Urn. A special of the University Chamber Series, she was the featured pianist in concert before a capacity crowd in Schofield Auditorium on October 1. 1976. Urn's concert was a pleasing variety of both classical and contemporary selections. She opened the evening with a "Capriccio on the Departure of his Dearly Beloved Brother" by J. S. Bach, which embodies the emotions of Bach upon his brother's departure to join the Swedish army. Its melody ranged from lively and bouncing to grandiose. The following two numbers, "Six Variations in F Major, Opus 34" by L. Von Beethoven and "Prelude, Chorale, and Fugue" by Cesar Franck included a variety of movements. The two were especially unique because they provided an opportunity for Urn to show her nimbleness at the key board. Her fourth selection, "Klav-ierstuecke. Opus 76" was a series of five movements, each in a different key. Perhaps the most striking aspect of this piece was the variety of emotions it conveyed. Each key change presented a new feeling, and the expression on Lim's face mirrored the changes. The final selection, "Napoli Suite" by Francis Poulenc, was the perfect finale. The number evolved from a sunny disposition to a rousing climax, and left her audience with a feeling of total satisfaction in her performance. Her technique had been as captivating as the music itself. Performing complete series of trills and cross overs, her movements were impressively many and varied. Lim's preparation began when she started taking piano lessons at the age of six and gave her first recital at the age of eight. She is currently in her third year of study as a scholarship student at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. Lim spends an average of seven hours a day practicing the piano at Juilliard. She is studying a variety of composers. In the future, Lim hopes to achieve her master's degree and become a professional performer. At Juillard, she must present two public concerts per week. In addition, she presents four major recitals during the school year, and is continually in competition with other students for featured soloist spots with several symphony and chamber orchestras in and around New York City. Lim enjoys the self-motivating situation, and says she loves to perform. "If you truly enjoy what you are doing and can make your audience share your pleasure, you find there are rich rewards in performance of any kind," she said. "If I can play for audiences like the one here at Eau Claire and have one person remember my name and performance, that's a kind of fame, and it's the kind I use to judge my success." —Paula Mickelson Creator -175Dramatic, talented... MATSU MOTO The cultures of East and West were bound together in song in a University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Chamber Series Concert in Schofield Auditorium, Nov. 11. Shigemi Matsumoto, a leading soprano of the San Francisco Opera presented a combined program of Western classical music and Japanese folk songs. For the folk songs she was accompanied by Allan T. Iwohara on the koto, a 13-stringed Japanese instrument. The program selections allowed Matsumoto to utilize her vocal and dramatic versatility. She was very much alive on the stage, assuming the gestures and facial expressions of a particular character in portraying a desired mood. Her dramatic capabilities were especially apparent in her rendition of a set of songs by Francis Poulenc, a 20th-century French composer who set poetry to music; seductive, flippant or gay, depending on the mood of a particular piece. The soprano's dexterity and strength vocally was especially apparent in Rossini's recitative and aria, "Una voce poco fa," from his opera, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE. Dressed in a kimono for the second half of the program, Matsumoto introduced each of the songs personally, translating the Japanese titles and explaining the idea behind each song. True to the nature of folk music, the songs dealt with the everyday work of the Japanese people, the natural environment and universal human experience. Iwohara played one instrumental set consisting of "Kisha Gokko" (The Choo-Choo Train), which displayed what could be accomplished technically with the instrument, and an American folk song medley, which, according to the artist, was done "in honor of our country's 200th anniversary." The sound of the American tunes on a native Japanese instrument, however, almost seemed like a bastardization of the koto's gentle quality. Professionally and technically, the concert was a success. Mat-sumoto's vivaciousness worked well on stage, but wasn't very personable. The concert was more a polished product than a personal experience between artist and audience. The spark which glowed in Matsumoto's eyes might flare in full force if she would allow a bit of the professional polish to wear off. -Margaret Helminiak 17S-Creaton Creative, charismatic..

The songs..."AII you Cotta Do Is Hold Me Tight," "Number One," "Life Is Like That..." we could relate to the music and the feelings. Chapin's humor and charm made the concert an unforgettable experience. His songs reflected personal experiences and feelings. The song..."Make A Wish"...a wish...our see Tom Chapin again. Crea«on-177Foot-stomping sounds STYX September 19,1976. The arena. Longhairs sauntering through the crowd, looking casual. Teeny-bops running wildly in the halls, thinking they're at a high school basketball game. Co-eds in their white painter pants and wedgies, guys in their faded Levi's and Frye boots. All waiting for... STYX! Their waiting was worth it because Styx put on the kind of "get up and boogie" show that they're so well known for. Before Styx, the crowd was entertained by Stillwater. Although Stillwater suffered from an inability to communicate with the audience, they did play a good brand of rock and roll. Opening with "Ridin' The Storm Out" by R.E.O. Speedwagon, and slipping through the remaining music by Queen and David Bowie, they were still a refreshing band to hear. Stillwater didn't try to win the audience with gimmicks, but with their own music. Drummer Keith Kramer got the front rows scrambling with his wild pounding on the "skins", breaking numerous drumsticks, and a big smile when he wasn't singing. He was obviously having a good time and so were the 1300 people who were watching him. Guitarist Danny Siebert didn't miss out on any of the fun dressed in a red and silver gloss harlequin outfit that was as loud as his guitar. They left the crowd shouting for more. Styx gave it to them. Loud and soft, lifting melodies. New songs and oldies, including "Mademoiselle," a song about a brothel in Montreal and "Lady," their hit song that has caused a heartthrob in most of us at one time or another. The five man group from Chicago put on an excellent concert. Keyboard player, Dennis DeYoung; bassist. Chuck Panazzo; and his brother John on drums held the band together, while the guitar team of Tom and James Young engaged in some wild electronic gymnastics on stage. The "high" lite of the night came in the middle of the show during the song "Celebration." Styx urged the frenzied audience to "Light up, everybody!" Join us in a celebration!" Due to university regulations, this was not possible, but it didn't matter because everyone who was there had a great time. -John "Beaver" Johnson 175-CfpJloroCreaton-179Music marathon takes it to the limit Playing a musical instrument for 77 hours nonstop . . . sound easy? Starting Friday, February 11 at 8 a.m. the Jazz Ensemble I, II, III and llll along with the Feton Robenson Blues Band played their music continuously until 1 p.m. on Monday, February 14. The Jazz Ensembles made it their goal to break a Cuinness Book of Record’s 76 hour record for continuous playing. The money raised by the marathon was to be used to finance Jazz Ensemble I's two-week trip to Europe in May. The money would also be used to help purchase new percussion equipment. The goal for the marathon was S 12,000, but profits fell short of the projected goal. Small ensembles such as the "Ice Bergs", "White Socks", "Cantus Fir-mus" and "January" kept the Marathon moving. According to Ron Keezer, conductor of Jazz Ensemble III, this marathon created a new record category for non-stop musical performance. Previously the University of Iowa had a Jazz Marathon that lasted for 76 hours. WBIZ radio covered the event and presented Dominic Spera, conductor of Jazz Ensemble I, a check as a contribution. The rules allowed a one minute break between each selection or band change. Marathon rules also required that the music being played be of a jazz nature. People in the audience actually had stopwatches which they used to tell each band when their break time was up. "I warned them that once they committed themselves there was no turning back," Spera said. At 1 p.m. on February 14 came the end of a long 77 hours of playing. Perhaps the marathon came up short of it's expected monetary goal, but the students had challenged themselves and they did it. 160-CfMloft. . . 77 hours non-stop FAR LIFT: Pete Madsen, keyboard player for Jazz Ensemble I.

Putting in anywhere from 25 to 40 hours per week, the Spectator editors describe their labor as "worthwhile," "enjoyable," "busy but practical experience" and "challenging." The Spectator editors start their week on Sunday afternoons assigning stories to reporters and do not finish until Thursday evening. On Monday, each editor takes the previous week's stories and puts his particular section of the paper together. It's not unusual for the staff to stay until 4 am Tuesday laying out pages. On Wednesday each editor goes to Chippewa Falls where the paper is printed to check pages for errors. On Thursday evening the editors get together at night and evaluate the week's issue. Throughout the week the editors must find stories and ideas for the next week's issue and also write articles for each issue. Melanie Luh, first semester on-campus editor, said students don't realize how hard thinking up assignments can be. "It's hard trying to figure out exactly what you want the reporter to do with an assignment," Luh said. She also added that since student reporters aren't paid, they will on occasion turn their stories in late or not do them at all. In the latter case, the editor has to do the story on their own. Margaret Hansen, first semester editor-in-chief, said one of the main problems the Spectator has is finding students who are willing to do investigative stories. She also said that there is a need for more student input into the paper. "Students don't realize we're fulltime students too. We need more student input on what issues and events should be covered," she said. Dave Schansberg, first semester arts editor and second semester editor-in-chief, said being an editor requires more time than school does, but it's worth it in terms of practical experience. "Being an editor is a lot more work than people think," Schansberg said. "Little things like reporters forgetting to do stories or having to wait for photographers all add to more work." Arts and sports editors have to wait for late stories because many events in these areas are held on weekends—this piles onto their work load, Schansberg said. Despite the long work hours and never-ending "little things," the staff said their jobs are rewarding. "Knowing we made it another week is rewarding," Hansen said, "some weeks it seems like we won't be able to do it, but we always manage. Putting together each paper is a challenge." Sports editor, Jim Schnetz, said being an editor is lots of work, but it pays when the paper comes out and you see your finished product. Schnetz said his job has also benefited him in establishing good relationships with the coaches, trainers, team members and other people he has come in contact with by being sports editor. Luh said one of the greatest things about being an editor is discovering that people "can get it together and work with one another." "We have an excellent camaraderie of staff members and that alone makes any work worthwhile." Creatorv1S3Capturing memories . . . A year of near-continuous activity compressed into 304 pages? Impossible? Maybe, but it's the job that faces the editors and staff of the Periscope every day of the year. Features, sports, organizations, speakers and special events all have to be photographed, written and placed in some semblance of order before page deadlines. Late nights and early mornings of typing and layout are hectic, chaotic, yet fun—until someone realizes that half the pages are misplaced and the mail goes out in two hours. Besides the ordinary problems of having to meet deadlines and getting people to work, the Periscope is facing an even greater burden this year—possible extinction. The yearbook is becoming more and more difficult to sell. Gail Schulz, editor of the Periscope attributes this problem to ever-increasing student apathy and the higher price of the book which increased from S3 to S5 over the 76 yearbook. The higher price was a result of a large budget cut amidst increased printing costs for the 77 yearbook. However, the situation may not be so gloomy for the 78 yearbook since the increase in segregated fees will allow for greater funding and a hopeful decrease in the price of the 78 Periscope. "We feel that there is a definite need for a yearbook on this campus," Schulz said. "The book has a very important journalistic value by giving students the opportunity to gain experience in publications work. Also, it is the belief of the staff that the book will gain in value as the years go by; thereby benefiting the student who purchases a yearbook."

The changes have come in the editorial staff and the editorial content of the paper. Instead of one main editor, the NOTA editorial staff has increased its staff to three editors. And, for the first time, contributions from students on other UW campuses are being accepted and printed. Olson said that the response from this innovation is pleasantly surprising. Although most of the staff members are English majors, Olson said that the driving force is that they are all interested in writing and want to put the time in. So much time, in fact, that editors find themselves putting in at least ten hours a week in the office. Olson feels that the publication is more inspired this year, and that much of the credit belongs to Bruce Taylor. "There's a lot more energy behind us now. More people are encouraged by what we're doing. We were more lackadaisical last year; now we're more ambitious." It is estimated that 100 pieces of poetry and three short stories are submitted for each edition of NOTA, which is published four times per school year. Some writers submit as many as 10 to 15 selections. UPPER RIGHT: Ruth Olion selects artwork for a coming issue. RIGHT: Lisa Busjahn explains NOTA contents to interested onlookers.

WUEC, the campus radio station, continues to reach students since it first came on the air in October 1975 at 89.7 FM. The staff of 45 students receives on-the-spot training in broadcasting. Since many of the volunteer personnel are radio-television minors (a major program is not offered at UW-Eau Claire), they receive valuable work experience. The radio station is manned by volunteer students, under the direction of Dr. Robert Bailey, associate professor of speech. All the managerial and directorial positions are filled by students, with the only paid member being the student operations director. The student operations director has a great deal of the responsibility for the day-to-day operations and for handling the staff, Bailey said. "He's my righthand man," Bailey said. The only other salaried member of the staff is the work-study secretary. But some of the volunteers are reimbursed for their work in other ways. Speech 240, Broadcasting. Activity, offers credit for work at WUEC, and radio-television minors are required to take it for at least two semesters, according to Bailey. Another reward for work at the station is the job experience gained. Bailey said that most staff members put in approximately 20 hours per week. He said that they do it "voluntarily because they enjoy it." The schedule at WUEC consists of a blend of musical programs ranging from hard rock to easy listening, and cultural and educational programs. The operating hours for the station are from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Monday through Friday, and from 1 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturdays. The radio station does not operate during the summer. Crcjlofi-187NEWS OF THE YEAR eM Motel.S?com®,s off-campus dor rEG'STB nr0mise ’ e.

Things started out bad for the Eau Claire Blugold baseball team in 1976 and stayed that way for the rest of the season. What was hoped to be a year for improvement turned out to be a long disappointment for first year Coach Sam Mills. The blugolds suffered through a dismal 5-23 season. The team faced their most difficult schedule ever including their first southern trip, an eight game swing through Tennessee in which they managed only one win. The conference schedule didn't • bring many better results as the team accomplished only four wins in sixteen games. Three of those victories were against River Falls, the only team to finish below the Blugolds in the Northern Division of the Wisconsin State University Conference. La Crosse took the title with a 14-2 record. About the only bright sj ot for the Blugolds was the play of senior Rick Czechowicz. The honorary team captain batted .346 in conference play and .358 for the season. He also earned MVP honors for the Blugolds and was given All-Conference and All-District recognition. Other top players during the season included Jim Arndt, who lead the pitching staff with a 2.02 ERA in conference play, pitcher Doug Grube and outfielders Dave Meyer and Rich Schultz. Coach Mills explained the season in these terms; "there were no high points when you have a season like we had." "To improve we are going to have to start beating teams like River Falls, Stout, and Superior. The baseball program at La Crosse is probably ten years ahead of ours at this time. That doesn't mean we are going to concede anything to them, but first you must beat the lesser teams before you can challenge the top." "The one step we took forward was the trip down south. We got a look at some fine teams down there." This was the first spring trip south for the Blugolds while other teams in the conference have been participating in these pre-conference games for years. The Blugold baseball program, which almost became extinct after the 1975 season, faces the task of building a respectable team. That will be quite a task after the 5-23 record of 1976 and probably is in the distant future. ; Games-193Title Dreams Fade... Blugolds Finish .500 "A genuine feeling of optimism prevails in the Blugold football camp for the 1976 season." This quote from the 76 football pre-season prospectus seemed to come alive and then die again in the Blugold's roller coaster season. Under the guidance of Coach Link Walker the team finished with a 4-4 conference record and a 5-5 overall mark. Walker described the season as up and down, with the Platteville game as the key turning point. With 28 returning lettermen, the Blugolds were expected to improve on their 4-6 record of last year. The team traded wins and losses for the first five games before they put on a show of superior football which some people had expected of them. A 23-0 loss to highly touted Kearney State of Nebraska was followed by a 26-21 win over Winona State, a 17-6 loss to Oshkosh, a 45-7 victory over Superior, and a 17-9 homecoming loss to Stevens Point. With a pair of games against River Falls and Whitewater coming up for the Blugolds the future didn't look too good. The Eau Claire offense, which Walker called "one of the most prolific we have ever had at Eau Claire," racked up 31 points against River Falls to give the Blugolds a 31-28 win. Quarterback Steve Krueger rushed for 68 yards and passed for 118 more as the offense picked up 324 total yards. The Blugolds proved it was no fluke by nipping defending trichampion Whitewater 7-0 the following weekend. Tailback Noel Carlson took over for injured quarterback Steve Krueger midway through the third period and threw a ten yard scoring strike to flanker Phil Zahorik. Carlson completed all eight of his passes and rushed for 52 yards, earning him Blugold player of the week honors. Game eight of the season proved to be the turning point and crushing blow for the Blugolds. The team traveled to Platteville to take on the number 11 rated team in the country. After taking a 23-13 lead at half the Blugolds folded and lost a 29-23 heart-breaker. The Blugolds had 22 first downs compared to seven for the Pioneers and piled up 397 total yards compared to Platteville's 218. The Blugolds seemed to help their foes win by giving up four out of eight fumbles in the second half. They also had the ball inside the Pioneer ten yard line three times and couldn't score a touchdown. Quarterback Noel Carlson accounted for 339 total yards and kicker Steve Haas set several kicking records. Haas tied the school and conference mark for most field goals in a game with three and broke the conference record for most three pointers in a career with 14. The following weekend the Blugolds bounced back to beat Stout 48-16. The victory came as sweet revenge for the defeat the Blugolds suffered at the hands of the Blue Devils last year. Fullback D. J. Leroy tied a conference record by scoring five touchdowns. All the Blugolds needed was a win in their season finale against La Crosse to match the best season and conference records achieved by a Blugold team in nine years under Link Walker. It turtied out, however, that the roller coaster stopped on the bottom and the 'golds suffered a 27-7 defeat to the Indians. Walker said the team must have been "down" realizing it could no longer win the title. He said it was the first time all season that the team was flat. Walker said the conference was very balanced this year and it should be the same next year with the Blugolds right back in the thick of the race. Walker cited a few close losses and the injury to Krueger as the main problem in the Blugold's drive for a title. He said the team had an excellent attitude and that the resurgent offense was due to the play of the offensive line. With Rick Ostrum, Dave Lipke, John Dowell, and Brad Gough leading the way the Blugolds showed one of the top offenses in the league. Individual leaders for the team were D. ). Leroy in rushing, Steve Kreuger in passing, Phil Zahorik in receiving, Noel Carlson in kick and punt returning, and Mark Sabin in interceptions. Tight end Reed Welch, kicker Steve Haas, and defensive back Dan Fassbender were named to the all-conference first team. Welch caught 35 passes for 467 yards and two touchdowns. Haas established himself as the best kicker in the conference by breaking records throughout the year. Fassbender was the defensive captain and contributed five interceptions and 65 tackles. Teammates Dave Lipke, Rick Ostrum, |ohn Dowell, and Tim Johnson were chosen to the second team. The Blugold players voted Noel Carlson as the 1976 MVP. Carlson was second in rushing and passing along with his kick returning marks. The season ended on a down note but for the first time in years there was talk about a championship midway through the season. The 5-5 record may not show much improvement but the victories over River Falls and Whitewater and the narrow loss to Platteville prove it was there. Walker said it best when he said the season was up and down. Some weekends they could beat anybody and on other weekends they would have trouble beating anybody. Who knows, maybe if the Blugolds switch the channel next year and watch Michigan instead of Missouri we may get a title at Eau Claire yet. Gamcs-195Editorial Note: The 1976 UW-Eau Claire football season began in controversy, developed into optimism, and ended in disappointment. The first two home games of the season were marred by students carrying derogatory signs, concerning Coach Link Walker, in front of the student bleachers. The seriousness of the incident became apparent when this action created more cheering and standing ovations than the team did on the field. It has been no secret that students on this campus have been screaming for some kind of change in the football program for the past four years. From the results of a few early games and by the way students reacted early in the season it seemed like this issue might surface after the 76 season. Then to show that college sports are not as far away from professional sports as we would like to think, the Eau Claire students proved that "as a team goes, so goes the fans." The team showed great progress during the midpart of the season and even had people talking championship. Walker's much criticized unimaginative offense erupted into one of the best in the league. A couple of breaks here and there and who knows, the Blugolds may have won a title. But a couple of late season losses left the team with a 5-5 record and people still asking if the football program is any better. I'm not here to say whether the program needs a change. Then again neither is any other student on this campus. It is up to the athletic department to decide if a change is needed-not the students. Let's not forget our place as fans and supporters of a university team. Philadelphia fans have an infamous reputation in professional sports; let's not put Eau Claire in the same category on the university level.

The squad ended the season with a 39-20 dual meet record and finished third in the WSUC Conference Meet. Both performances marked the best showing by a UWEC cross country team. Because of their third place finish in the conference meet, the whole team advanced to the NAIA District 14 Meet in Kenosha, Wisconsin. This marked the first time the blugolds have reached the district meet as a team. In addition to team accomplishments, John Stintzi established a new school record in the five-minute run by finishing the race in 25:05 at the Titan Invitational held in Oshkosh. Highlights of the season included wins over conference powers La Crosse and Stevens Point. They defeated La Crosse at the Tom Jones Invitational, a meet hosted by UW-Madison, and they beat Stevens Point in the Gold Country Classic, hosted by the University of Minnesota. The Tom Jones meet included UW-Madison, South Dakota State and some former Madison harriers who now run for professional track clubs. This was the first year UWEC entered the meet, indicating that the bluegolds have risen in the calibre of competition. The balance of the squad resulted in a rarity this season as four individuals emerged as top runner in one or more races. John Vodacek was the top team finisher in the conference and district meets and in two other meets this year. Stintzi was the top runner In four races while Todd Herbert finished first twice and Rick Kallien once. In the district meet, Vodacek finished 14th and Stintzi 15th, both advancing to the NAIA National Meet. In the district meet the top 15 individuals advance to the national meet along with the top three teams. UW-la Crosse won this year's district title and Eau Claire finished fifth. The outlook for next year's squad appears good as only three runners will be graduating. The blugolds will lose four-year lettermen Dennis Brooks and Tim Legore and two-year letter winner Dan Bruneau. Twenty-one runners out of the 24 man roster will be returning next season including Vodacek and Stintzi. Other top prospects will be sophomores Todd Herbert, Jim Spiegelberg, Mike Swanson and Carl Rasmussen. 196-G me»Cross Country Team FRONT: Dan Kastner, Dave Eager.

Games-199Women's Cross Country: off to a running start In their first year of competition the UW-Eau Claire Women's Cross Country team showed some promising individual runners and, in the words of Coach Alice Cansel, hopefully increased interest in the program so that more runners will compete in the future. "I was real happy with the attitude and dedication," said Gansel. "The program will hopefully grow in numbers now." The Blugolds had nine runners out this season, three of them running in almost every meet. Cansel said all nine runners practiced regularly, but injuries caused the Blugolds to run without a whole team (five runners) at times. Carol Rondeau and Lisa Shelley ran in the six regular meets, including the United States Track and Field Federation Championships at UW-Parkside. Sue Agnew qualified for the national meet, hosted by UW-Madison and ran in every meet except the U.S. Track and Field meet because she had an injury. Agnew qualified for the nationals by run- ning the three miles in just under nineteen minutes at the Tom Jones Invitational in Madison. Any individual running three miles in less than 19 minutes in one race this season automatically qualified for the national meet. Agnew, a freshman from Rockford, III., finished 201 out of 222 runners at the national meet. UWEC is considered a large school in the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women and Agnew had to run against women from Michigan State, Penn State, UW-Madison and UCLA among other larger schools. Cross country is in the early stage of becoming a womens conference sport in Wisconsin, Gansel said. She said that the legal limit of seven teams needed to organize a conference could be reached next year. In addition to Eau Claire; UW-La Crosse, UW-Stevens Point and UW-River Falls started cross country programs this season. LaCrosse appears to have the strongest team in the state finishing 18 out of the 23 teams at the national meet. Alice K.

The Blugolds had a young team, with only one senior, Julie Russell, finishing the year. Russell was named most valuable player by team members and was nominated for athlete of the year. "The team made a tremendous comeback," Mero said. The Blugolds lost several members to injuries and transfers at the end of first semester. The team worked hard second semester, Mero said, and finished third in the state conference. At the state regional meet in Class I. Russell placed first on the vault and fourth on floor exercise. Ingrid Belusa placed third on the beam. Russell was third all-around gymnast and Sue Guerin placed fourth in this category. In Class II competition, Karen Marquardt placed fourth all-around and Diane Nemitz placed fourth on the beam. Belusa qualified for the Midwest Regionals on the beam and Russell qualified as an all-around gymnast. Mero said she hopes her team can compete against Kent State, UW-Madison, Iowa State and the University of Minnesota in next year's competition.

Senior Jo Ellen Kraft will be the only player not returning to the team for the '77-78 season. Sophomore Debbie Wendelberger, a setter, was an all-conference player. Moos said this was a good year and the team was not plagued by sickness or injuries—a problem they faced last year. The team made the two-hour practice sessions valuable learning experiences, Moos said. Looking ahead to next year. Moos said the team is very capable and should do well.

Games- 205Lack of bodies: Wrestlers lose again The UW-Eau Claire Blugold wrestling team closed out another losing season by finishing last in the nine team Wisconsin State University Conference meet. The Blugolds registered 2' » points compared to the 92» « points that champion UW-Whitewater had. It was the Warhawk's fourth straight WSUC title. The Blugolds failed to climb out of the last two positions where they have now remained for the past seven years. The team did improve on their dual meet record, raising it from last years 3-11-1 mark to 6-9 this year, despite forfeiting several meets for lack of participants. At one point in the season the Blugolds raised their record to the .500 mark by posting four straight wins over Gustavus Adolphus, Hamline, Bethel, and UW-Stout. However they finished the season with five losses in their last seven meets. The Blugolds also participated in two invitationals this season. They finished fourteenth out of 16 teams at the St. Cloud Invitational and seventh out of 8 teams at the Northland Invitational, where Blugold Ron Seubert was the 150 pound champion. Coach Brian Hurtgen began the season with 27 wrestlers and ended with 10. In explaining the conference finish Hurtgen said, "I think part of our problem was we just didn't have enough different people to practice against, and we may have gotten a little stale ' "We wrestled well but the other teams really looked tough. There were a lot of good, young, strong kids in the conference this year." Next year's nucleus who will try to lead the Blugolds out of the conference cellar will be Bill Ross (142), Ron Seubert (150), Kevin Stadler (167), and heavyweight Don Rolland, who placed second at the Northland Invitational.

With their chances for a conference championship severely diminished, the team hoped to remain in contention for a playoff berth. As if the prospect of not even making it to the tournaments finally hit the team, the Blugolds ran off Its longest win string of the season. Consecutive victories over Whitewater, Stevens Point, River Falls and Stout set up a final showdown with Platteville. To the delight of Blugold fans a minor miracle happened during this span. Platteville was beaten twice and La Crosse lost three players with injuries and likewise lost back to back games. These unexpected happenings moved Eau Claire from third to first place and needed only a win over Platteville in the season finale to win the conference title. Platteville battled from 22 points down to two points with less than two minutes left. The Blugolds woke up in time, however, to win the game 80-77. The win gave Eau Claire the home court advantage for the tournaments. In the first round action the Blugolds beat Lakeland in a 76-58 sleeper while UW-Parkside dealt conference runner-up Platteville a 112-70 thrashing. This set up a title rematch between Parkside and Eau Claire. Eau Claire jumped out to an early 12 point lead and went into halftime with a 32-28 lead. The game seesawed the second half and Parkside finally tied it at 51. The Blugolds suddenly lost their poise and committed several turnovers and missed some easy shots. Parkside took advantage of this and built up an eight point lead which Eau Claire never could overcome. The Rangers won 68-58 and had their third straight trip to Kansas City. Despite the disappointing finish, there were several bright spots throughout the season. Anderson captured his 200th collegiate coaching victory when the Blugolds beat Whitewater the second time. Dennis Blunk, Jeff Lund, and Tim Valentyn were chosen to the All-Wisconsin State Conference team, while Anderson was named co-coach of the year with Platteville’s Dick Wadewitz. Blunk was also named to the All-District team and was an NAIA All-American. The Blugolds will have a fine nucleus of returning players for next season including Wittke, Krautk-ramer, Lund, Jeff Grieg, Guy Rossato, Hint and Novak. "We know we have a good team this year. If things go right for us, we may have a great team." This statement was made by coach Ken Anderson prior to the 1976-77 basketball season. In the back of his mind Anderson was thinking of playing in the national tournament in Kansas City. As far as that possibility, things apparently didn't go as well as planned. The season began with what appeared to be an awesome lineup and a team which was a shoo-in for the conference title. The Blugolds had four returning starters in Tim Valentyn, Dennis Blunk, Jeff Lund and Charlie Novak plus a top prospect in seven foot freshman Gib Hintz. With two sound non-conference victories over Southwest Texas State and Milton, the Blugolds entered the prestigious Shrine Classic in Savannah, Georgia. All-Conference center Dennis Blunk and reserve Bob Wittke played very well as the Blugolds came from behind twice to win the tournament. They beat Savannah State 70-68 in the opener and then defeated South Carolina State 85-80 in the title game. Blunk was named the tournament MVP while teammates Lund and Novak joined him on the All-Tournament team. As if Deja Vu had set it, the Blugolds returned home to lose their conference opener, after the impressive tournament title, for the second Cjnwi 2Myear in a row. UW-La Crosse beat the Blugolds for the first time in eight years under coach Anderson. The Blugolds bounced back to beat Oshkosh and Superior the following week. Senior guard Tim Valentyn was named Eau Claire player of the week by Anderson for his 28 points and outstanding defense in the two games. The eighth game of the year brought nationally ranked UW-Green Bay to Eau Claire. The Blugolds beat Green Bay 70-57 last year while the two teams had split two NAIA championship tournament games. This time, however, the Phoenix prevailed as Eau Claire blew a ten point lead with four minutes left in the game to lose 64-61. Again the team rebounded with a pair of wins over Duluth and Northern Michigan. The wins gave Eau Claire an 8-2 record going into the Holiday Classic. Center Blunk rose to the occasion again and was named tournament MVP for the second time as the Blugolds beat Augustana College of Illinois 63-62 for the title. Teammate Bob Wottke joined Blunk on the All-Tournament team while Valentyn and Lund were named to the second team. Winning tournaments apparently takes something out of the Blugolds as they again lost their next game, this time to Augustana of South Dakota 89-78. With all the non-conference games out of the way the Blugolds prepared for 13 straight conference games. Four straight victories over Stevens Point, Whitewater, Stout and River Falls followed the loss. Whitewater proved to be the only serious challenge for the Blugolds. Game 18 of the year served several purposes. The Blugolds lost another conference game, 69-61 to Platteville, and it became apparent that Eau Claire was not the powerhouse which was originally thought. The loss gave them a 14-4 overall record and a 6-2 conference mark. It also dropped them from the national ratings. 210-GamesAfter consecutive victories over Oshkosh and Superior, coach Anderson stated, "If we want to win the conference title and earn the number one position for the district playoffs, we've got to win the rest of our games."

The Blugolds played St. Cloud and the University of Minnesota which are two of the top teams in Minnesota, Schumacher said. Eau Claire is one of the few schools to play out-of-state teams, she said. The Blugolds finished the season with seven wins and nine losses. At the state tournament they won one and lost two. According to Schumacher, the team was a young one with much potential for next year. This year the team had three freshmen, one junior and one sophomore as starters, she said. The young Blugold team either played well or poor, but never inbetween, Schumacher said. This lack of consistency was due to lack of experience, she said, but the consistency should be there next year. "I felt it was a very enjoyable year," Schumacher said. "The caliber of students was excellent and I will look forward to a good year next year." Gamot-213Swimmers peak in nationals The Blugold swimming and diving team had another excellent year under the direction of last year's NAIA National Coach of the year, Tom Prior. The Blugolds were 9-1 in dual meet competition, placed second in the conference meet and finished fourth in the NAIA Nationals. They accomplished these feats with only 10 returning lettermen and just four of last year's nine All-Americans. The Blugolds participated in three relay meets this season. They finished sixth in the Big Ten Relays, were second in thirteen teams in the Minnesota Relays and after winning nine of 12 events and setting five new records, won the Wisconsin State University Conference Relay Championship for the fifth straight time. The Blugolds also hosted their own invitational meet for the first time, placing first in a field of seven teams and winning 15 of 18 events. In an upset defeat the Blugolds, who were looking for an unprecedented sixth straight conference title, fell second to UW-Stevens Point. Coach Prior said, ''the meet was nothing but disappointing for the team, the divers Paul Petitti, Rich McCarten, Gary Brewer, Tom Friedel and Gary Lemons carried to second." However, the inspired Blugolds came roaring back two weeks later in the NAIA Nationals to place fourth, well ahead of UW-Stevens Point which finished in the ninth spot. The Blugolds broke 11 school records in the meet and bettered several conference records set two weeks earlier. There were nine All-Americans on this years team, senior Rich McCarten, junior Paul Petitti, sophomores Nate Nevid, Andy Antonetz, Rich Falster and freshmen Jim Nielsen, Jim Harmon, Tom Green and Gary Brewer. Only McCarten will be gone next season. Coach Prior said, "the guys have proven themselves to be gigantic competitors, nationals was a fantastic experience for everyone, probably more thrilling than last year." Looking to the future Prior said, "we will be shooting for a first or second place finish in nationals next season." FRONT: Andy Antonetx. leil Helling, Jim Harmon. Rick Falster.

Blugold swimmers Nancy Cody and Maryann Giljohann placed third and fifth respectively in the 50 and 100 yard breaststroke at the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Diver Joan Schalk placed fifth in the one-meter diving event. Finishing ahead of her was one LaCrosse diver and three Madison divers. Schalk also placed fourth In the three-meter event with the top three places going to Madison divers. Madison, which has dominated swimming and diving events in past years, will not be in the conference championships next year. Madison is the only school in the conference offering scholarships to swimmers. The Blugolds will be losing senior Schalk but the remainder of the team should be participating in next year's competition. "I'm looking forward to next year," Kruckman said, "and who knows, it may be full of pleasant surprises." ABOVE: HuRtnon. Jjne Cim«-217I BOAGolfers bring title to Eau Claire Roger Billing .

Coach frank Wrigglcsworih The 1976 golf season was "THE YEAR" for the Eau Claire Blugolds as the team shot its way to victory in the 23rd annual conference championships at La Crosse. The first place finish gave Eau Claire its first golf championship in the school's history. The six man squad also captured the NAIA District 14 title, making them eligible for the NAIA Nationals June 7-10, 1977. The Blugolds trailed UW-Whitewater by one stroke after the first 18 holes but came back strong on the final 18 for a ten stroke victory. The win ended the conference domination by Whitewater and Oshkosh who have won the title 20 out of the last 21 years. After the win. Coach Frank Wrigglesworth said, "we're now a contender instead of being just another team." 220-Gim« The Blugolds may be contenders in coming years with the top six golfers including three freshmen, two sophomores and a junior. During the season the Blugolds won their own 12 team Invitational and finished third, fifth and eleventh in other tournaments. The team was lead by freshman Tim Bauer, who won the medalist honors at the conference meet and was voted MVP for the season. Other members of the conference championship team include: freshman Steve Mattiacci, freshman Ed Severson, sophomores Roger Koehler and Jeff Dorward, and Roger Billings. With one conference title secured Wrigglesworth hopes the squad will continue to improve and be a contender again next year.The 1976 track season was highlighted by several school records and four individual members advanc ing to the NAIA Track and Field National Championship. Senior Dave Biclmeier qualified for the Nationals in the shot put and discus, sophomore Dave Cook advanced to the nationals in the decathlon and senior Jim Lichty qualified in the pole vault, as did junior Phil Timm. Bielmcier qualified for the finals in the shot put, but failed to score as he finished ninth. He failed to qualify for the finals in the discus. Cook finished 16 in the decathlon when he failed to qualify in what was probably his strongest event, the pole vault. Lichty was injured during the warmup and did not compete in the pole vault at the meet, while Timm failed to make the starting height of 14-6. A number of school records were set by the team. Bielmeier set school records in the shot put and discus with tosses of 53-4i i and 15-8t i, respectively. Bielmeier is the first Blugold ever to win both an indoor and outdoor conference title in the same year; he did it in the shot put competition. Other members setting school records included Lichty in the pole vault, Karl Murch, Craig Hinke, Frank Bruno and Steve Witt in the 440 relay, Noel Carlson in the 120 high hurdles. Cook in the 440 intermediate hurdles and Kevin Baker in the 2-mile walk and 10,000-meter walk. The Blugolds finished fifth out of nine teams in the 1976 WSUC outdoor meet. The track team has climbed from the WSUC cellar to finish as high as fourth in 1975. Coach Bill Meiser has been credited with the improvement of the track program and the team's future appears optimistic with a large group of returning underclassmen.

Women's track finishes fifth The UW-Eau Claire girls' track team finished fifth in the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Meet, in which 12 schools from the state competed. The Blugolds also had one qualifier for the national meet in Manhattan. Kansas; as Heidi Hambuch finished 21 out of 42 competitors in the high jump. Coach Alice Gansel said she didn't think the fifth place finish at the conference meet was the best the team could have done that day. "We didn't have a particularly good day," she said. Gansel hopes for a better performance at the conference meet in 1977. The 1977 squad is stronger in the shot put and short distance races, she said, but weaker in the hurdles. Those who scored points in the 1976 conference meet were Hambuch, who placed fourth in the high jump; Doris Meder, fourth in the 100 yard dash; the 440 relay team of Meder, Hambuch, Carol Rondeau and Deb Sonsalla placed third; Jill Wendt placed sixth in the 400-meter hurdles; the 880-yard medley relay team of Rondeau, Sonsala, Meder and Sharon Stirdivant finished fourth; Lisa Cartier placed fourth in the 100-meter hurdles and Wendt placed fifth in the same event. The conference meet is probably the highlight of the season for the track team, Gansel said, although more national qualifiers would make the national meet the big event for the Blugolds. 222-Game Tennis takes top honors The Blugold tennis team had its best season ever in 1976. Under the direction of coach Robert Scott the Blugolds won both the conference and district titles, and tied for 11th in the nationals with eight points. During the season the Blugolds posted a 14-6 dual meet record, placed fourth in the 16-team Stout Invitational and finished second in the eight-team Tital Invitational. The key to success throughout the season seemed to be consistency. All six singles players finished the season well over .500, led by Mark Turner, who played No. 5, with a 26-6 record. His 26 victories set a school record previously held by John Christopher with 23 in 1974. Beside Turner, sophomore Peter Hartwich, playing No. 1, finished 19-9, including a first in the Titan Invitational. Freshman Scott Nesbit, No. 2, posted a 19-10 record and senior Chuck Schlitz, No. 3, finished 17-10. Freshman Mark Hillestad, No. 4, was conference champion and also 17-10 while Steve Shapiro, No. 6, finished with an identical 17-10 record. The various doubles teams used during the season by coach Scott posted a 54-33 record to give the Blugolds a highly respectable 170-88 record in both singles and doubles. The conference championship win was only the second to escape an Oshkosh team in the past 12 years. The Blugolds also won in 1974. Another Blugold record was set in the national meet where the team scored eight points surpassing the old mark of four in 1974. FRONT: Mark Hillestad. Scott Ne b»t, Stevtr Shapiro. Hartwich.

Coach Diane Gilbert-sen said the girls played excellently considering their youth. There was one senior on the team. "As far as the team goes, the girls arc good students, good athletes and when they are on the courts they're out there to play," Gilbertsen said. "The girls are in control of their emotions and don't blame this or that if they lose. Often times if I'm not watching the game closely I can't tell by watching their actions if the girls are winning or losing." Ten hours a week practice paid off for junior Dorothy Murphy who placed third in the conference meet number one singles division. Sophomore Linda jenson placed fourth in the number two singles meet. Sophomores Jeannene Rawlsky and Judy Carpenter placed fourth in the number one doubles meet. Freshmen Kim Graham and Anne Heezen placed third in the number two doubles meet. Blugold senior Sue Sarles will be the only member not returning next year. According to Gilbertsen next year's season is looking good because of the experience of the players returning.

With the availability of Hobbs Ice Arena and the growing interest, hockey has become one of the most popular sports on campus. The 15 home games this year drew an average of 350 fans per game. These are larger home crowds than opponents Madison Area Tech, Beloit College, Marquette and St. Norbert drew. According to Kolb, since hockey fever has hit Eau Claire, the next step is to make it a varsity sport. This move seems essential if the program is to survive, Kolb said. All 11 teams on the Blugold schedule have varsity budgets to fund their program, but Eau Claire must pay for their own equipment, traveling expenses and ice time, Kolb said. According to Kolb, high school hockey is growing at a tremendous rate, but college programs are not. He said the addition of varsity hockey teams on the college level would allow more high school graduates to continue playing the sport. The 1977 Blugold squad will be losing only five members for next season. All five were members of the original team of four years ago. They are team captain Dave Meyer, Scott Hartmann, Tom Norman, Lee Haskell and Dave Preller. Kolb admits the squad will miss these five seniors but hopes to provide more exciting hockey next year. 226-G»m«Eau Claire Ski Team coach tarry Ozzello said that if his skiers could train like some of the varsity ski teams do, there wouldn't be a team in the country that could beat them. The Blugold Ski Team is one of the top three teams in the midwest and is respected throughout the nation. Ozzello said. The Blugolds have developed a winning reputation in skiing resulting in some of the best skiiers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Colorado attending school in Eau Claire. The 1977 version of Eau Claire skiing consists of 37 men and 13 women competing in 32 combined meets. Ozzello is in his sixth year as coach and takes great pride in the fact that skiing is one of the most winning sports on campus. Skiing is not a varsity sport and members raise money for their trips and equipment by selling skiis and team buttons every year. Even though the sport is not varsity the members have followed the NAIA and NCAA eligibility rules since 1973 in order to compete with the larger schools. Every year since 1973 the team has had members who have qualified for the national finals but could not go because they did not belong to a varsity team. Blugold victories this year included wins over UW-Madison, the University of Minnesota, Iowa State and the University of Chicago. The team will be hurt by the loss of seniors Kevin Nelson, Dave Ozzello, Jeff Ayers and Mark Willis. Ozzello, however, is confident his large crop of underclassmen, can keep the winning tradition alive at Eau Claire. And what about the chance of becoming a varsity sport? "Whether we become varsity or not we will be skiing because the kids arc good and they want to compete," Ozzello said. Skiers sport winning style ABOVE: FRONT ROW: Clark Champeau, Jeff Ayres.

Being the highest organization on the Finance Commission's list of priorities, University Recreation is an integral part of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. "Eau Claire would be like a ghost town without the recreation department," Jan Washburn, Assistant Director of Recreation, said. According to Washburn more students are turning to recreation each year to relieve tensions and frustrations. While leagues and tournaments still exist for the competitive individual who participates with the sole purpose of winning, the emphasis in student recreation seems to be changing, according to Recreation Assistant Jan Larson. Larson, the newest member of the recreation staff, graduated from Eau Claire in 1975 and was a four year participant in recreation programs. "Students are interested in recreation programs to have fun and meet people," Larson said. "Student recrea- tion is the best social function this campus has." To accommodate the growing interest of the students the recreations staff and department continues to expand. Last year there were 851 teams participating in recreation leagues and tournaments. This number is expected to increase with the addition of more sports. In keeping with the image of a social outlet, the Rec Department is placing more and more emphasis on co-ed activities. Co-ed leagues presently exist in basketball, volleyball and badminton. These three activities attracted over 90 teams this past year and are expected to grow if more time and space become available. The major setback of the recreation program is limited time and space. Besides the leagues being held Monday through Thursday nights there are Saturday basketball leagues and Sunday night leagues of co-ed volleyball and womens indoor soccer. According to Washburn, the weekend games do not seem to bother the students. "If it is the only time available for them to play they don't mind because they want to participate so bad," she said. The Rec Department at Eau Claire offers more sports and tournaments than any other school in the state. Over six thousand league games and tournament contests are played each year. Leagues are offered in badminton, basketball, bowling, football, pocket billiards, pushball, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and water polo. Tournaments are held in badminton, basketball, bowling, chess, golf, ping pong, pocket billiards and tennis. The recreation program is highly organized and students often fail to realize the size of the operation. Current facilities offered to the students include seven softball fields, four football fields, four outdoor basketball courts, six tennis courts, two outdoor volleyball courts, two outdoor badminton sets, one soccer field and one horseshoe area. 228-GinwUPPER LEFT: Umpire Bruce Cohen prepares to make a close call.

Games-229230-Camet Probably the part of recreation most often forgotten is the Hilltop game room. Besides offering 12 bowling lanes and 16 billiard tables the game room provides equipment rental to all students. Various sorts of equipment may be checked out with a student ID. Basketballs, footballs, croquet sets, chess sets, ice skates and tennis racquets are among the wide variety of equipment available to students. With the constant growth In popularity and emphasis on socializing, the recreation department is a drawing force of high school students to the Eau Claire campus. One-third of the women's teams are from off-campus while the men's teams are split in half between on and off-campus participants. According to Washburn, as long as the students are having fun and making new friends the recreation program will be a success. She feels the growing popularity of male coaches for female teams attracts many girls to the program. "It is another way to meet people of the same and opposite sex without going to Water Street," she said. Another successful element to the Rec program seems to be the recreation staff and the relation they have with the students. Students often become friends with staff members and a friendly, informal atmosphere develops. The names are often forgotten or not known behind the familiar faces of staff members. Whether it's Jan or Jet out on the field, Vic on the basketball court, or Harold behind the counter students often form close ties with the staff members. Under the leadership of Director Clayton Anderson, Assistant Director's Roger Johnson, Vic Johnson, James Peuce and Jan Washburn, Recreation Leader Bruce Haugen, Recreation Assistant Jan Larson, and supervisors Richard Ludwigson, Charles Pederson, Harold Stuckert and Alton Lewis the recreation department at Eau Claire offers students one of the finest Recreation programs in the state.Cheerleaders rally Blugold spirit BOTTOM: Steve Eklund, Steve Shallock, Luther Stone, Larry Allen, Charles Fox.

The time and dedication needed to be an outstanding student and athlete on the Eau Claire campus puts these individuals in a class of their own. Because of 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 third annual PERISCOPE Student Athlete of the Year Award includes senior status, nomination by the coach for outstanding talent and leadership, conclusion of athletic eligibility and a 2.5 cumulative gradcpoint average at Eau Claire. With these qualifications in mind the PERISCOPE has chosen football and track performer Noel Carlson and swimmer Joan Schalk as the year's 238-Gamctoutstanding male and female student athletes. "I don's see how a kid could do more." With these words, Eau Claire coach Link Walker described Noel Carlson. The 1976 Blugold MVP played tailback and quarterback during the season. He finished third in conference passing statistics and third in total offense. During the season Carlson set a school passing record by completing 60 per cent of his passes. Aside from football, Noel has also shown great ability in track and field. He has lettered twice as a Blugold thinclad and has scored points in the conference meet the past two years as a hurdler. According to Walker, "Noel is a perfect example of the student-athlete." Along with his athletic accomplishments Carlson has maintained a 3.98 grade point average. He is a pre-med student with a biology major and chemistry minor. Joan Schalk succeeds Deb Gannon as Eau Claire’s female student athlete after an outstanding diving career with the Blugolds. Joan is only the second member of the woman's swim team to compete all four years at Eau Claire. She has participated in the one and three meter diving events and has placed in the conference top five all four years. In the one meter event Joan has placed third, third, fourth and fifth during her four years. In the three meter event she has placed fourth, fifth and fourth in her sophomore, junior and senior years. According to coach Judy Kruck-man, Joan was definitely a state champion diver except for the fact that Madison has been competing in the same conference meet. After this season Madison will no longer compete with the rest of the state schools. Joan will probably be most remembered as the girl who dove in the men's meets during the 1975 season. She became the first woman to do such a thing at Eau Claire. Kruckman describes Schalk as a team leader with great motivation and desire. She also has shown her versatility by competing on the gymnastics team in her sophomore year. Joan has kept her grades in good standing as well. With a double major of math and physical education, she has managed to keep a 3.48 grade point average. The PERISCOPE would like to congratulate Noel and Joan for their fine student and athletic accomplishments. Congratulations are also due to the other senior student athletes who did not win the award but have been instrumental in making Eau Claire a "school of excellence" in all facets of the phrase. Camn-239Nursing Me, be a nurse? The idea sounded okay, the opportunities fantastic, but how would people react? This was my major obstacle in nursing; how would other people accept me? Reactions varied from positive acceptance to ambivalence, but never rejection. At times I felt that patients accepted me better than I accepted myself. It took until the beginning of my junior year to gain enough self-confidence to feel at case with the proclamation, "I am a nurse." As I came to know "the girls" better, and they me, I became another member of the class. Just another nursing student who became a permanent fixture in the McIntyre Library, who just happened to find the Walter's lap room or Brat Kabin each Friday afternoon, who strained the imagination to find excuses for the "no allowable cuts," who carried a little black bag full of necessary equipment on each community health home visit, who received daily lectures in one of three lecture rooms, who wanted labs at Sacred Heart just for the homemade donuts each Thursday morning and who spent an endless number of hours striving for professional excellence, for the knowledge necessary to promote healing to the best of my ability.

When it comes down to having to decide what area in business I was to graduate in, I had three choices; accounting, management, or marketing. Marketing became the area that best fulfilled my needs simply because it is the basis of all other areas of business. It wasn't until this year that I finally began to understand the nature of marketing, that is, that organizations must be consumer oriented. That is why the consumer today demands more of businesses. Business organizations can have the best management, the finest financial departments, efficient production processes and even the best product on the market, but if its not what the consumer wants, you have nothing. Dave Looney Business 246-Gr.tdii.itrtGraduates Accounting has given me a deeper insight into the financial framework of the business world. It has also enhanced my mechanical knowledge of how to transform bits and pieces of data into relevant and timely reports. A future benefit that will be derived from accounting is that it will enable me to meet so many different people. Sharon Holt Grjdujips- 249SHARON ADAMS But.

Both the teacher and students will grow and gain knowledge through their exchange of facts, concepts, theories, experiences, values, attitudes and insights. My specific content area is secondary economics education. I want what I teach to have some practical applications to the students' lives, now and in the future, and I want to make it as interesting as possible. If I can meet the needs of the students, keep them interested in the units of study, make and meet my professional and personal objectives in teaching, I’ll be a very happy and satisfied teacher, but always striving to improve. Sue Fiegel iuduaisGraduates Sports and physical activity have always been a large part of my life. I started out believing that the term physical education was synonymous with sport and athletic activity. I came to the realization that physical education encompassed so much more. My work in physical education at Cau Claire has been a great learning and rewarding experience. I have become aware of the many important facets and concepts of physical education. I want to become a physical educator because I firmly believe that being physically sound is just as important as being mentally sound. Physical education is a reputable profession; it is going to be my profession. Lori Meder College is meeting new people making new friends, laughing, erving, sharing, talking, personal growth and awareness, learning, discovering. I hat is. discovering, at last what you want to do with your life. Special Education is what I've decided to commit myself to. But what's so "special" about Special Education? It's "special" when a brain-damaged little boy says your name after months of silence, when a learning disabled child ran add 2 + 2, when a group of deaf children "sing" a song. If this isn't special, what is? Eau Claire has lead me through the process of scare hing, discovering, and preparing me for something which I find exciting and personally iewardmg--Special Education.

Div Ashland CAROL WEBER Special lanesvllle IANET WEDEPOHl Elementary KohlerArts i The University of Wisconsin Eau Claire is people. It is a walk through Putnam Park. It is enjoying the ducks between classes in Mini Creek. It is viewing a sunset over the Chippewa River. So often the obvious aspects of the campus go by unnoticed. Being a biology major has opened my eyes to the obvious. It has provided me with a deeper appreciation for life and its intricate processes. The past four years have been four years of growing and maturity, four years of learning and living, and four years of adventure and excitement. The obvious aspects of this campus, which are usually forgotten, will remain as my memories and of a special experience in my life called Eau Claire. Jim Schlaefer Being both an English and Speech major helped me scholastically in each of those fields. Examining literature taught me analysis methods I could use in dissecting words for performance, and performance often made a work's ideas and form clearer. But those majors also helped me maintain my sanity, for when the raw-nerved, off-and-on stage histrionics began to carry me away, I could retreat to silent studies and escape into other scenes perhaps even more hysterical but much less personal. Vickie Amador 282-( r dua(es V History has given me a sense of perspective as I try to know myself and the world around me. It has helped me to attain a level of understanding that would not have been possible without the insight that comes from a study of the past. People and events of today can truly be understood as a product of many factors, including that of being links in the chain that reaches from the past into the future. History provides an appreciation and an awareness of that chain and each link in it. History has broadened my interests and stimulated my desire for more knowledge in related fields- I am grateful to the faculty of the Department of History for opening new doors to me.

AppletonSeniors reflect on UWEC The four long years of college have not only changed your appearance and attitude. Look around you. The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has taken on new looks and additions. When you began college four years ago, absent were Hibbard Humanities Hall, Davies Center addition. Ecumenical Religious Center addition as well as the Putnam Park historical marker and other additions. In order that the handicapped have access to all floors in Schofield Hall the new elevator was installed. It was constructed during 1976 at a cost of $99,900. This elevator is located at the north entrance. The Putnam Park Restoration (trail development) was designed for the control of erosion and the elimination of of safety hazards along the old trail. This project's cost was $70,828.97. On May 23, 1976, Putnam Park was rededicated. The rededication 290-Graduatnceremony included the presentation of a new commemorative tablet from the Wisconsin Jelephone Company operators. The "skyscraper" of the UW-Eau Claire's campus is the Hibbard Humanities Hall constructed in 1974. This building combines a three story classroom structure with a seven floor-office tower for the departments of English, Foreign Languages, History, Journalism, Political Science, Art, Philosophy and Religious Studies. Psychology, Math, and Foundations of Education and facilities for student publications. This building provides 137,000 net square feet of office and classroom space at a cost of $4,998,200. The Davies Center addition was completed in January 1977 with construction beginning in 1975. This ad- dition provides 28,000 net square feet of meeting rooms and student lounge space in the Davies Center. Its cost was $1,600,000. A new billboard was constructed in front of the Arena at a cost of $2,000. It houses information about coming programs and events. ’ The Ecumenical Religious Center addition, a place of worship for seven major Christian denominations, was completed in September 1975 at a cost of $372,000. This project expanded the old building and added a chapel. The worship center provides for services, concerts, seminars, social events and meetings which serve the university students. However, unlike the other UWEC additions, the ERC is church-owned. Just as you continue to grow, so will UW-Eau Claire.
