Mew people occupy the offices of the chancellor, the dean of arts and sciences, several department chairmen and various positions in the administration. Their fresh viewpoints and enthusiasm promise much for the university in the trying years ahead But as we welcome them, we must also remember the men and women who laid the groundwork for them, those whose standards have brought the university this far. It is to one such couple. Leonard and Dorellen Haas, that we dedicate this book, for they set the university's standard of excellence and have exemplified it for more than 30 years.

He was named one of six outstanding students. Little did anyone realize, his alma mater would become his place of employment for 39 years. Leonard Haas, a chancellor (JW-Eau Claire, retired from his position Dec. 31. 1980. Many expressed a sadness about Haas' retirement because, as one longtime faculty member said "He truly has made Eau Claire University what it is today." When he officially became president in 1960, the college consisted of 1,700 students, four buildings and 115 faculty members. Today, more than 10.000 students occupy 15 buildings staffed by a faculty of 650. Haas' dedication to his school and to higher education led to his appointment as president. After graduating from what would later become UWEC. he returned in 1941 to teach history and government. In 1946 he became registrar, a position which also Included the duties of director of admissions. His administrative talents were strengthened through these positions and by working as a righthand man to W. R. Davies, the college president. Haas said he learned much about administration and working with people under Davies' guidance. Haas came to the campus just seven months after Da vies became the college’s second president. They worked together on nearly every policy initiated at the college until Davies' death in 1959. "We spent almost every night in the summertime eating our dinner on the picnic table, and we used to continue our discussions into the late evening." Haas said. "Our discussions usually affected the college In some way." Haas said working as an apprentice to Davies made his own transition to president a continuing operation. "His philosophy and his policies became my philosophy. my policies," Haas said. In 1948, Haas was appointed dean of instruction after A. J. Fox retired. As dean, Haas initiated the Faculty Bulle tin. which gave attention to important faculty matters. He recommended general education requirements for elemen tary and secondary education and initiated new majors and courses. The first Faculty Handbook, issued June I, 1948. was edited by Haas. It listed the standards and policies governing the actions of the faculty, and specifically stated, "all members of the faculty are expected to participate in all college functions." Haas believes staff involvement with the university and its students is beneficial to the system. "I feel it's tremendously important for me and my staff to let students know we’re Interested in what they're doing." Haas said. "Unless I'm very pressed for time, the door is always open.” By stressing the open door policy between faculty and students. Haas has caused UWEC to be characterized as a large university with a small college atmosphere. Haas' staff has backed his philosophies and policies from the beginning of his days as chief administrator. In fact. Haas might not have become president if it had not been for the action taken by the university’s faculty prior to November 1959. In 1959, Davies had announced his retirement. The Board of Regents of State Colleges had the duty of appointing the college's next leader. In an unprecedented move for a college faculty, the Eau Claire staff voted unanimously for a resolution requesting Haas, then the acting president, as the next president. "It was quite a unique request because the board usually selects a person from outside the institution," Haas said. Nevertheless, the board approved the resolution and named Haas president elect effective January 1960. However, the newly appointed president assumed his position a month earlier than expected when Davies died Dec. 10, 1959. After the state universities merged for form the UW-System in 1972. Haas became UWEC chancellor. Haas' 20-year reign as chancellor has allowed him to turn his ideals and philosophies into policies. In his 1960 Inaugural address. Haas named four ideals of a higher educational institution. The first ideal was to give the opportunity of higher education to anyone who was able to benefit from It. The second ideal was to provide curriculums that would satisfy the needs of the society and challenge the student. The third ideal was to provide diversification in the character of the nation's colleges, and the last ideal was the establishment of a basic standard of quality. The ideals were part of a philosophy Haas has promoted since he graduated from the school .. the philosophy of striving for excellence in one's life. "There must be a striving for excellence In every human activity." Haas said at his inauguration. "Excellence belongs to the whole community and all members have a responsibility for its nurture." "Excellence" has become the unofficial motto of the school since Haas' Inauguration. When "Excllence" was first used as a motto. Haas said, he received a great deal of kidding from colleagues around the state. Today, those same educators have expressed confidence that the university has lived up to its motto. Haas said. Haas' strive for excellence has guided him through the difficult times of his leadership. The 1960s brought about radicalism on most college campuses. Protests and sit-ins were common occurrences on campuses, and Eau Claire had its share. But few demonstrations ever turned into real crises because Haas allowed the students to express their views as long as the university processes could continue. Haas saw a few war and racial protests take place on the university's grounds. Controversial speakers Invited for the Forum Series also appeared on campus. And the all night "teach-ins" between faculty and students was the popular way to air one's opinions. Haas' belief was. and still Is. that when students face controversial Issues, they face truth, which allows excellence and quality to develop. In an interview. Haas recalled the sleepless "teach in" nights: Imagine the Southwoods room at 2:30 a.m., 500 students sitting on the floor, faculty mixed in. by the apparel you didn't know one from the other.' Haas said. "Night after night this went on because it was a way for a learned population to approach the problems of the time through a rational approach, bearing the marks of excellence associated with it," he said. Haas' wife. Dorellen, has affected his life as much as his strive for excellence. Since Haas began his administrative work In 1948. the state of Wisconsin has received two employees for the price of one. Mrs. Haas has acted as hostess and innkeeper to a houseful of guests many times throughout the years of her husband's chancellorship. She has done it all without the aid of servants. Both she and Haas have been the university’s official welcoming team for traveling visitors In the wee hours of the morning. The "First Lady” of the university for the past 20 years also has played a vital role in the university's growth and development. both in working with other wives of faculty members and in univer sity women's organizations. Many would find it difficult to have a family life with the dedication the Haases have shown for the university. Mrs. Haas said they and their two daughters succeeded because they understood the importance of Haas' job. "We looked upon Leonard as a man very dedicated to his job; the university came first, but we never felt deprived." Mrs. Haas said. "Our family life was tied to university functions." The Haases have chosen to stay in Eau Claire and around the university after Haas' retirement. Haas said he plans to finish some correspondence, travel to Japan as the university's representative and work with his successor and her staff for a smooth transition. Dr. Emily Hannah of Minnesota has been appointed (JWEC's fourth chief administrator. Haas will have come full circle by fall 1981 when he returns as a history professor. his original position at (iWEC.New chancellor stresses quality Hannah Joins UW-Eau Claire Right.

She hasn't been an easy person to see — all the meetings and conferences and discussions and receptions. I almost felt a little guilty trying to arrange an Interview with her. But I did get In to see her and the funny thing was that during the interview she seemed more nervous than I. Of course, making one’s first statement to a new constituency — which was used to the style of a man who hod been here for 21 years — might be an occasion for a little nervousness. Mary-Emily Hannah. 44, was born and raised In Denver. She received her B.A. in speech and English from Iowa's Qrinnell College In 1958. She taught In her home town for a while and was named Denver's Teecher of the Year in 1960. She holds graduate degrees from two different schools. She received her M.A. In speech from the University of Iowa and her Ph.D., also in speech, from the University of Illinois (where her Ph.D. thesis was on "Matching Political Wits; — A Comparative Study of Humor as a Persuasive Device In Political Speeches of Abraham Lincoln and Adlai Stevenson II”). Her new doctorate in hand, she took a job as an assistant professor of speech at St. Cloud State University in Mlnne sota In 1967. By 1968 she had been elected department chairman, a post she would occupy until 1971. She taught at St. Cloud until 1975. when she became Assistant to the Vice President for Academic Affairs at Metropolitan State University. She continued to work her way up In the state university system until 1976, when she became Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs of the Minnesota State University System, the first woman to occupy that post. One of her first official acts as Chancellor stirred some discussion on campus when she appointed Sara Chapman, who had been her assistant in Mlnnesa ta. as a full-time executive assistant. Hannah defended the action by saying that after a wide search, In which she had considered people both within the system and outside of It. she could find no one more qualified than Chapman. Hannah has said that her administration will differ from the previous one primarily In style rather than In educational philosophy. She does not. for example. favor 24-hour visitation in the dormitories, since, she says. “I would be hard put to imagine how (the) learning environment would be enhanced bv in- creasing the visitation hours." Nor does she favor the carrying of guns by campus security. Hannah said her first academic priority Is "to have high quality academic programs and to limit the number of academic programs to those that can be of high quality." Her second priority is to accurately assess "the future needs of students both to function as the leaders of the society of tomorrow and to have an economically productive livelihood. and to balance those two concerns in evaluating the continuance and the modification and development of new programs.” The new administration of UWEC will, in future years, have to face these and other crucial questions. What, for example, will be the effect of the system-wide decline in enrollment predicted for the next few years? How can the university maintain quality programs In the face of this decline? It Is left to this new chancellor to wrestle with these issues, which have the potential to change forever the nature of this university. Sara Chapman ditcutse a point with three student 1Taking note of Marching Band by L. J. Hanson Precision. That is the trademark of the UWEau Claire marching band. This fall. 149 musk majors worked 50 hours transforming themselves into a precision drill team. They marched late afternoons and early Saturday mornings all for one academic credit. Is it worth it? Russ Mlkkelson. the drum major, thinks so. He said marching band provides valuable experience for the prospective music teachers. The five football shows performed by the band are written by crews of four to six upperclassmen. The crews design the drills, select the music and teach the show to the other band members. Mikkelson said this experience prepares them for teaching high school marching bands. The marching band unit, directed by Donald George, includes a drum major, a 20-member flag corps and 128 instru mentalists. The band does not stress winning awards like the band at UW-Madison. Mikkelson said. ‘'We're not a real competitive band. It's more an educational opportunity." Gay Olson, who wrote one of the shows, said. "A lot of people don't realize the work that goes into it. It's hard to gauge where 120 people are going to go on the field.'' Olson said one show had to be rewritten after it was discovered the last five members of the band would be marching In the end zone. But marching band provides more than an educational opportunity, Olson said, ''It's fun when you have the time to do It" It provides the opportunities to meet people, get outdoors, and do something different with music. Olson said. There are also drawbacks to marching band. Olson said, especially when it gets cold in November and it rains. Mlkkelson said the band does not march when it gets under 40° , however, because it would cause damage to the instruments. Mikkelson said another drawback to marching band is the out-of Jate uniforms. He said they still bear the insignia "WSU" for Wisconsin State University. Despite the drawbacks. "The attitude this year has just been great,” Mikkelson said, "It's a lot closer band than it used to be."

The class is required for performance ma jors. The twocredit recital consists of 50 total minutes of music by a single stu dent with an accompanist A recital worth one credit is one in which two students share the time, each taking 30 minutes of performing time The selections performed, either vo cal or instrumental, may be chosen by the student or by the supervising instructor who may feel that a particular piece best exhibits that student's talent Rick Lange and Bruce Fox shared a recital during this past year Lange played alto saxophone and Fox played the trombone Both feel they gained musicians confidence by performing before a public audience. Besides the self gratification of feeling like he accomplished something impor tant. Lange said, there are two other advantages to having done the recital. ''First there is the obvious advantage of improving my playing by all the practicing I did for the performance," he said. The other advantage is more subtle, he said. As a transfer student. Lange had felt that he wasn't totally accepted into the department by the other stu dents So part of his reason for doing the recital was to prove that he was just as good a musician as anyone else there. Most of the students who were asked their reasons for giving the recitals answered that it was to gain experience and confidence. Graf said his recital was like reaching a plateau in his music As soon as he had reached that one. he started work ing on a higher one. He said he believes that a musician is constantly learning and trying to improve his music. I l l Senior Joctyn Roller concentrate a he play the flute at her rruor recitalWhy theater? by Debra A. Peterson. Senior Theater English Major It’s finally happened to me. the same way It's happened to people through the ages: I have fallen In love with theater. I didn't plan to dedicate my life to theater. I don't think anyone could rationally run his finger down a list of career choices and say. "Hmmm. Theater sounds good. I’ll do that" The odds against Finding work are too great, the personal risks tremendous. So why do it? What makes technicians work 56 hours straight so that everything is ready for opening night? Why do actors spend hours alone studying lines while their friends are out enjoying themselves? There’s no easy answer. Everyone has his own reason for going into theater. But as for me, well: If somebody asks Joe Schmoe why he breathes. Joe answers. "Because it keeps me alive!" And if somebody asked my why I chose theater I guess I'd answer the same way. Theater is not a job. it's a way of life. Konstantin Stanislavsky, co-founder of the Moscow Art Theater and developer of the "Method” school of acting, said. "The theater begins not from the mo ment you make-up or from the moment of your entrance on stage. The theater begins from the minute you awaken in the morning. You are in the theater when you talk about It to your acquaintances. to the clerk In a bookshop, to a friend, to another actor or to the barber who cuts your hair. The theater is your life, totally dedicated to one goal: The creation of great works of art which ennoble and elevate the souls of human beings." You are in the theater while waiting for a bus In Eau Claire, Wis. Actors observe the people at the bus stop and try to remember the way they walk and talk to draw on their mannerisms for a future role. A lighting designer notices the quality of light that falls on the people waiting. A playwright notes the interchanges between strangers. Everything in life fuels the theatrical art because theater represents life. Theater expresses the hopes, fears, failures, triumphs of all of us. It lets us see ourselves. or people we might have been, or people we could become. David Morgan, friend, adviser, teacher and director of (JW-Eau Claire students for 10 years says. "In our heart of hearts we may harbor certain hang-ups and quirks of character. It is Illuminating to discover through studying the human condition depicted in plays that we are not alone; that there are others who have similar feelings, quirks and behav ioral patterns. What is more, people have been behaving this way from the beginning. It is a singular joy to observe a character in a play behave or react to a situation and be able to say, "That's exactly what I would do or say In that situation!' So we discover much about self." Actress Merlairte Angwall. (JW-Eau Claire senior, says. "Theater is opening up people's eyes to something they didn't see before. It helps people under stand why other people behave as they do." The need to understand people requires actors to be aware of the people around them. Technical theater artists, too. arc aware of elements in everyday life that can be used In the theater. "I think of my life In terms of the- ater." senior (JW-Eau Claire stage manager Joline Obertin says, "I’m constantly thinking of how objects In everyday life would work in a certain kind of show." Obertin has been (JWEau Claire’s stage manager for two years. Her posi tkxi requires her to know a show as well as its director does. She must call all lighting and sound cues and deal with emergencies: adjusting cues If actors skip ahead in the dialogue, or improvising when props or set pieces break or disappear, "It's a big headache sometimes." Obertin says, "but you get to the point where theater is so important that It comes before everything else. I have such a love for it that I don't know what else I could do."

"You either have it and can't describe it. or you don't." Actors need technicians. Playwrights need directors. We all need each other because creation in the theater depends on many artists working together and giving the best of their efforts so that the play — the creation — is the best, most beautiful, most representative of human life that it can be.

It has steadily gained prestige for its exhibits of nationally known artists and serves as a practical extension of the art department's classrooms. The exhibit of 45 pieces of art from the university's permanent collection (early in the 1981 spring semester) illustrated the diversity of the gallery program. Examples of award-winning student art was hung beside works created by Important figures In the contemporary art world, including Roy Lichtenstein. Jim Dine. James Rosenquist, Patrick Caulfield. Allan D'Arcangelo. Robert Stackhouse. David Gilhooley, Julius Schmidt and Clinton Hill. Many of these famous artists have had exhibits In the Foster, including Lichtenstein, who visited the campus during his show in early 1980. Gallery director William Pearson said that as more well-known artists exhibit their work here, the gallery becomes more prestigious and therefore draws more well-known artists to the gallery for exhibitions. Pearson contacts artists chosen by the gallery committee to see if they would like to have their work displayed in the Foster. "A lot of artists just say 'Eau Claire where?’ A lot of people just don't consider it; it's not going to advance their reputation as an artist,” Pearson said. But since Lichtenstein and other major artists have displayed their work here, he added, the gallery has been building its reputation. Lichtenstein's visit was unique because it was the result of a huge postcard campaign. Enthusiastic art students and faculty encouraged him to come by flooding him with mall. (The value of his work In that show. Pearson said, was approximately $490,000) Although thousands of dollars in art is displayed In nearly every show, there has never been a vandalism problem. Only once has a piece been damaged; It was by accident, and. fortunately, it could be repaired. The gallery has been a useful site for BFA students' required exhibitions. Also, the annual student shows present an opportunity for the students to have their work judged by major artists. In the past, these shows have been judged by artists such as George Segal and Chuck Close. Students can get directly involved with the reality of the art world by attending discussions and slide shows by visiting artists, or by talking to them personally. On occasion, students have participated In workshops in which the artist demonstrates his technique. Several sculpture students took part in constructing Stackhouse's "Eau Claire Sailings," the wooden structure that was erected on the bank of the Chippewa River in the spring of 1980. The patio adjacent to the gallery will soon be covered with a skylight roof, which will enlarge the gallery and enhance It by allowing art to be displayed in natural light year-round.

Randall Lake, director of forensics, said (JWEC has the largest, most successful and best supported forensic program In the (JW System. Besides the fact that forensics is a good experience and gives training in inter acting with others. Lake said. It's just plain fun. This year, between 40 to 45 students attended tournaments, which are heid from September to April. Dana David-son-Hempelman, a junior from Normal. III., said she spends 20 to 30 hours a week on forensics — a one-credit course, though students do not have to take the course to compete in tournaments. She said her interest in forensics is not based on the credit. Rather, she said, she’s involved because she enjoys it. She said forensics is also good practl cal experience for her major, education, and that it helps build self-assurance and ability to relate to people. Colleen Keough, a senior transfer student. said one credit for forensics Is better than none, as she has been to schools where no credit Is offered. The program's reputation may not be the main reason students come to (JWEC she said, but it certainly makes the school more attractive. Forensics has two general categories, team debate and individual competition. The individual category has sub-cate gories of Interpretation (performing of another author's work) and public address (performing original work.)

Senior Journalism Major It was 2 a m when I left Hibbard Humanities Hall 204, the Update News editing lab. Henry Lippoid, professor of journalism and specialist in the broadcast field, between alternating periods of chewing on his tie and talking about popcorn, was working on something, probably a news story scoop. I knew Update, the broadcast editing program would be a lot of work. But as a required class in the broadcast journalism sequence there was no way around it. I had already put it off until my very last semester. Students who had passed the four-credit class recommended that I only take 12 credits, have no part-time job and be ready to eat. breathe and sleep Update. I thought they were kidding. Walking home that early wintry morning all the rumors I heard were true. "Never answer your phone after midnight, it might be Henry calling with a story assignment or a big scoop." "Never let Henry know what you hate to cover, because you’ll find yourself assigned to that beat for the rest of the semester." (Journalists must be objective about everything.) "Expect to work long hours filming, editing and getting the news stories as perfect and as professional as possible." Henry wasted no time In getting us (the Update News team — 14 broadcast journalism students) working. With 40 pounds of equipment strapped on shoulders and packed In cases, we went out into the community and campus to cover news and sporting events. I recall all the stories missed, re-shot and retaped because of mistakes and errors on our part: Threading the tape through the video recorder incorrectly, forgetting to recharge the machines be fore going out on assignment, forgetting to plug in the extension cords (when we remembered to bring them), not using the tripod and getting wavy video, not removing the lens cap ... simple errors. Henry is a man of Incredible patience and understanding. Time slipped by. almost unnoticed in the always frenxied activity of the Update editing lab. but fewer errors and mistakes were made. We were all learning a great deal. The semester is over, and it is hard to believe I have survived Update. I remember all the things we went through and accomplished. I remember the feeling of satisfaction when we salvaged a rather good story about the Secretary of Agriculture, after the WEAU-Channel 13 reporter accidentally stepped on our video recorder, breaking the sound recording connections. I remember the professional feeling and treatment I received while going through a secret ser vice check to film Mrs. Carter while she was campaigning In Eau Claire. And I remember living through all the camera and equipment break downs. In November. Update News aired a three-hour special broadcast of election coverage and scooped WEAU with tabulation results. Update News had several scoops throughout the semester. It was true; we were a real news team. Update is the only university learning program in the state that airs a live news show to a city viewing audience. Every Tuesday and Friday at 5 p.m.. Update News was aired on the city cable station. Channel 12. On show days the editing lab was tense and rushed — the Immediacy of television journalism at its peak The show had to be produced, our taped stories had to be selected. UPI wire copy had to be written, weather maps had to be arranged, and headlines had to be written. Last minute news flashes had to be written into stories. And then everything had to be picked up and run over to the Fine Arts television studio, the actual broadcast area of Update News. While we were getting the broadcast segment of the show put together, the crews at Fine Arts also were busy. They were arranging the set, determining the lighting, typing information into character generator visual storage systems, selecting slides and getting the video carts In order. And at precisely 5 p.m. Update News would come on the air. It seemed like a lot of work for a half hour show, but that Is the advantage of a program like Update; it Is realistic. Our major goal throughout the semester was professionalism. As I look back over the long hours spent In the editing lab. when Henry seemed to forget that I had four other classes and a part-time job. or when he commented. "Who needs any more than four hours of sleep a night.” I think I am glad it is over. It was the first time I had ever gotten a letter from the Dean of Students saying I was missing one of my classes too often, (always because I had an Update story due. and a late story is an F.) I was always trying to schedule interviews and editing time around other classes and activities. Update News was a real pain in the neck sometimes, but I learned a great deal about the realities of broadcast journal Ism. Now it is over. To be completely honest, I kind of miss it.

But if you are an aspiring broadcaster or even just an interested student. WUEC offers a hectic, but highly enjoyable introduction to all the excitement of this fastpaced field. WUEC had a staff this year of 65 students working In a variety of disci pltnes. The news department is responsible for putting on three newcasts a day and doing local stories, both on and off-campus. Announcers, or disc jockeys, provide music and banter throughout the day and evening. The sports staff does local sports stories and reports on two newscasts a day. Staff members rotate broadcasting Blugold basketball and baseball games and produce two local sports shows a week. The promotion department promotes WUEC In and around the community. WUEC can't participate in fund-raising activities since It is licensed as an edu catlonal. non-commercial station. The music staff files and records new records, and puts out a weekly playlist, which is sent to music stores and other campus radio stations In the state. The creative writing department writes promotional messages for special events the station plans The production do partment records and produces that material. Finally, the programming depart ment determines the program schedule the station will follow. Each staff is supervised by a student director. The station operations manager and a faculty advisor oversee operations of the entire station. Combined with all this is a camarado rie, enjoyable companionship, staff meetings and the thrill of developing skills, culminating at the end of the year with a banquet where staffers are "roasted" and given awards. WUEC recently increased its power from 10 to 740 watts, which means the station serves both the campus and the community. Its signal can be received within a 50 nlle radius of Eau Claire. The station is often a training ground for many students who seek internships or jobs in area radio stations.Spectator blends idealism with "real world” pressures Above. Newa Editor Tom Lindner questions • aource •bout a a lory At right. Judy Mown, the layout editor, works to fit stories, pictures and artwork onto the pages by Darla Meyer When I applied for the position of Spectator editor-in-chief. I envisioned myself making Important decisions about which earth-shaking stories on campus issues should be run each week. I knew some drudgery would be Involved, but I hoped that the biggest part of the Job would be the idealistic material Journalism classes are made of. Before the first Issue of the Spectator was even printed. I knew I was wrong. For the most part, the job of editor-in-chief is that of a diplomat. The editor allots pages to arts, sports, editorial and news editors, usually trying in vain to satisfy all. She bargains with the printer to get in late copy and soothes irate photographers and writers who feel they've been slighted. The editor also answers questions. Everyone. It seems, has a question, usually about something you've never considered. Since the first week I've constantly found myself making decisions. Whether the "10 Questions" column must contain 10 questions, how much late copy there can be. which letters we have to run. whether we can have an office popcorn popper even though It's against university rules — all have to be answered, usually immediately. In addition. I have to try to be in- formed on everyone and everything because if something goes wrong it's my fault. There's no way to shift the responsibility; even If it isn't directly my fault, I feel as though it is. The responsibility grows directly in proportion with the number of pages each week. When the advertising staff suddenly stretches the paper from 20 to 28 pages because of late advertising, copy must be found to fit those pages. Yet it must be copy of acceptable quality designed to Fit in with layout, artwork or photography of equal quality. And that copy must be found regardless of the health of the staff. As the Bangkok Flu and other varieties of winter illnesses gradually Infected the entire staff, morale plunged. During this epidemic, the disaster which truly worried the entire staff was whether we had enough Kleenex. Part of the editor’s responsibility results from her notoriety. Every journalism student and teacher, it seems, knows who she Is. so they know where to direct their gripes and criticisms. And. sometimes, they even know where to direct their praise. But even without the criticism, and despite the praise, the effort is worth- while. The editor's job has been, for me. an excellent way to tie together, through practical experience, many of the things my professors have tried to teach me. Still, the most difficult part of the editor's job. for me. has been keeping my perspective. After putting in a 30 to 40 hour week working just on the Spectator (plus classes, homework and another job) I begin to feel that the Spectator Is everything. Which, in a sense, it is. because the final product can make or break every week.£ Not all the memories are pictured in the book by Peg Carlson Just as every individual remembers college In his or her own way. so will many people remember the Periscope in different ways. For example, the finance commission will remember the Periscope for Its unending need for additional funds. Ron Kresel, yearbook company representative. will recall the Periscope as a yearbook with no deadlines. Gayle Fitzsimmons, senior portrait photographer, will envision taking 73 pictures with no film In the camera and finding out that 194 seniors have been scheduled to have their pictures taken at 5:30 p.m. Friday. To any close and personal acquaintances of its editors, the Periscope will bring back memories of broken dates and cold showers. The editors will remember many, many hours in the coldest room In Hibbard Hall and stipends that arrived two months late. As I page through the "81 Periscope. I will remember the work Involved in producing this yearbook ... work that kept me in Hibbard Hall 107 at all hours of the day and night. I will remember laughing hysterically to the song "Here Comes the Sun” at 8 a.m. after working on the Periscope throughout the night. I will remember the staff and the support they gave me when I felt frustrated, confused or incompetent. I will remember bribing Tom Pantera. a writer, with a Swedish meatball dinner. I will remember Lonna Hanson's words of wisdom: "Aw Peg. don't get your undies in a bundle." Although at times we were barely "making it." we made it ... thanks to a dedicated staff. Occasionally, some of us had to "pull an all-nighter." but that was peanuts compared to Cindy a.e. Vlssers "all-weekers.” Cathy Acherman will never forget the "40-pictures-due-Friday-today-is-Thurs-day" marathon. Because of her dedica tion. Karen Boehme's pet fish. Chuck, suffered irreparable psychological damage from lack of attention and died. Kevin Volt could be the first yearbook author In history. Tom Lindner's expressiveness and creativity may be severely stifled: every story idea he expressed he had to create. Jody Conner fell In love with an IBM typewriter. When I reminisce about days at the Periscope. I will wonder If Cherie Phillips ever bought the yellow Honda Civic she dreamed of owning someday. I will wonder if Jim Grzybowski ever adopted Rena. Lori Lau's dog. or whether Lori simply moved on to some other "(Jncle Jim." (I guess you had to be there.) Lastly. I will hope Judy "Crop-Happy" Pokwinski never becomes a surgeon. i NOT A expands to encompass all arts by Cherie Phillips 1980-81 — the year NOTA dared to eat a peach. Unlike some literary publications, NOTA (None Of The Above) Is not known for printing solemn essays that take all the reader's concentration to get through; nor for stuffy poetry, the kind taught In a high school lit class; nor for morose short stories that leave the reader feeling depressed. Instead. NOTA works to bring to life all that is creative, all that is art. Extending its reach this year, NOTA scratched and clawed its way Into the world of not only literature, but music and art, as well. NOTA Is published once each semester. In this year's first issue, one of the featured topics was jazz, with a focus on jazz music and performers In Eau Claire. Also featured in the issue was a January to-May Arts Calendar. Listed were poetry readings, visits by poets and other writers, plays, concerts and art exhl-bltis in Eau Claire, the Twin Cities and the surrounding area. "The people who work on NOTA are dedicated to all arts, not just poetry and short stories," said fust semester coeditor Peter Duncan. Most of all. NOTA is fun to put together, several staff members said. With an abundance of creativity and what they call their "wild and weird ideas." each publication is likely to be different from previous ones. Some of this year's ideas were; a writer’s block game, forgetting all the poems and turning it into a humor magazine. and changing the name of the organization to Students for a Christian Society and altering the scope of the content accordingly (In response to Jerry Fal-well). Obviously, these were not all incorporated Into the publication. Guest poets invited by NOTA held workshops and gave readings in the Cabin. Among them were Louis Jenkins and Janet Beeler Shaw. NOTA also sponsored student open poetry nights at the Cabin, which were well-attended. And now for those of you still wondering about NOTA eating a peach, you'll find no clues on the publication's cover page where It is printed. The Idea comes from T. S. Eliot's poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," in which the main character asks questions such as "Do I dare disturb the universe?" Finding no answers, he finally is so discouraged that he asks. "Do I dare to eat a peach?" Fal semester I960 35System’s budget cut hurts UWEC Byline by Kris Halblg In an attempt to balance the 1979-1961 state fiscal budget. Gov. Lee Dreyfus ordered a 1.4 percent cut to all state agencies, including the (JW System. This Is In addition to the 4.4 percent cut he imposed last year. The cuts, which are to amount to 510 million state-wide, are to total $5.6 million for the System. (JW Eau Claire's cut Is approximately $98,000 said UWEC Chancellor Emily Hannah. Dreyfus ordered the cut in early February, after realizing an imbalance in the current budget. Kenneth Lindner, the governor s administration department secretary, said increasing the state's general taxes was the only alternative to the cuts. "We are very opposed to that. I doubt the people would be very pleased if we did.” Lindner said. In the summer of 1980, Dreyfus ordered a 4.4 percent budget cut on all state agencies to prevent a projected $154 million deficit for the fiscal biennium. The System's budget was cut almost $18.5 million; UW-Eau Claire's budget was cut $900,600. "The university and every one of the state agencies are being asked (to make) a disproprotionate reduction compared to the schools and local governments. Had local government and the schools taken their 4.4, none of this would be necessary,” Dreyfus said. To alleviate the effects of the 4.4 percent cut. the Board of Regents levied of 1980. raising $3.75 millon. The Regents also used the System's $5.5 million reserve fund to help absorb the cuts. After all this. UWEC still had $589,900 to cut from Its budget. This was done by cutting utilities, equipment and personnel. Then, facing a $5.6 million cut In the four and a half months left In the fiscal year, the System had to trim from an already tight budget. Although the System budget was cut earlier in the year. It was able to defer the effects by imposing the surcharge and using the reserve fund. Dreyfus said. "All other agencies within the state took a 4.4 percent cut. The university did not." he said. Thus, the System should find It easier to impose additional cuts. Dreyfus said. "This might cause some Inconvenience." Lindner said. "If you're on-campus, some would call it a hardship. I think an additional $5.4 million on a $400 million budget base is easily possible.” UW System President Robert O'Neil was notified by Lindner that the $2 million fringe benefit account In the system coud be used to offset the cuts. "We were grateful for that news,” O'Neil said at a press conference. "There just isn't a whole lot left that one can do at this time of year,” O'Neil said. "We feel a disappointment in our eroded ability to provide the kind of educational opportunity we believe in and that Wisconsin citizens and students deserve." said Emily Hannah, UWEC chancellor. "The only sure thing we know is it certainly will not Involve layoff of personnel; It will not Include major, dastic cuts in the university. It simply will result in smaller Inventories.” said Hannah. To deal with the 1.4 percent cut. UWEC will have to further reduce supplies and services, not fill unexpected faculty and staff vacancies (unless they are deemed essential by the university) and not utilize an expected $25,000 energy conservation award for facility repairs. Hannah said. The largest problem In dealing with the 1.4 percent cut Is trying to deal with it this late In the fiscal year, said Charles Bauer, assistant chancellor for budget and development. The university is flexible to some degree although UWEC has already committed itself to some purchases and signed personnel contracts. "Most service costs are on a contractual basis or relate to the basic function of the university, so we have little opportunity to cut back there." he said. Deferring equipment purchases, supply purchases and personnel decisions does not mean the need Is gone. Bauer said. They must be made soon in order not to erde the quality of education. The latest budget cut may not diminish the educational quality, but a limited budget next year could cause harm, Bauer said. Although another surcharge is not probable, it is possible. The System's 198183 budget includes money for purchases, personnel and reinstatement of the depleted reserve fund. 36They decide who gets how much by Lynn Wemer With calculators and individual activities' budgets at hand, the Finance Commission set out to adequately and equitably allocate 853.000 of student segregated fees. It must have succeeded:' no organization appealed Its recommendation for another hearing. The commission was In a unique position this year because plenty of money was available and many good requests were made, said Chairman Tom Maassen. Besides allocation the 141.25 from each student's semester fees, to groups such as the Children's Center, the Spectator and forensics, the commission also recommended spending about $2,000 of the special reserve fund which the Senate uses to grant activities money in emergencies. Following the advice of the commission's ex-officio members. Charles Bauer, assistant chancellor for budget and development, and Wilfred Handel, Jr., controller, the commission decided to recommend allocating the extra amount to the organizations rather than keeping it as In the past. This eliminates appeals from the organizations and forces them to budget correctly, commission member Terry Mavln said. "The benefit of letting $2,000 sit there (in reserve). In my opinion, is questionable.'' Navln said. The commission's aim was to distribute the $853,000 so a majority of the students could use It most effectively. Maassen said. "We tried to serve all programs as best we could,” he said. This Included the women's athletics budget, which was recom mended to receive $75,000. 50 percent more than its $50,000 allocation of the previous year. Title IX requires equal opportunities for men and women in federal ly assisted education programs, the women's athletics representative said, and the men’s program received $84,500 the previous year. The women got a large enough recommendation to buy uniforms and post-season travel. The Finance Commission Is the first and most powerful group to allocate the money for organized activities' budgets. Next, the Student Senate must approve the budget. It is than Included In the university's budget and eventually is approved as part of the GW system's budget by the state legislature.Students contrast U.S., homelands Thai finds families different by Kevin Volt During his five years in the CJnited States, Trairong Usanachltt has noticed some unique characteristics of Amerl cans. The 20-year-old student from Bangkok, Thailand, believes that most Americans fail to see the benefits of certain aspects of life. “People don't appreciate what they have.” (Jsanachitt said. He noted how safety-minded many rules are. boating laws, for example. “Sixty percent don't pay attention to them. It's for their own good." Citing retirement homes and children living with parents who are forced to pay room and board. (Jsanachitt said he found family relationships especially different here. "Parents should be more helpful." he said. In his home country, he said, the eldest members of the fam ily are respected and usually stay with the family until death. (Jsanachitt has been In the United States since 1975 and began attending school in 1976. He had a friend who graduated from UW-Eau Claire several years ago. The friend suggested Usana-chltt come to Eau Claire. Usanachltt said his day-today life is "not too exciting." He said he thinks he's become too Americanized to con sider each day special and to notice any change in the country since he arrived here. This is especially true when it comes to his opinion about the Amerl can public. "I thought that the people lived more simply." he said, "but I real ly can't remember what I thought before coming here." Usanachltt thinks the media in the U.S. is very bad. "ABC Is good, but you have a self-centered media." he said. "You need to know what’s going on even in small countries even though you're a large country. You're too do mestic.” Trairong (iunachiitIranian cities lifestyle changes by Kevin Volt Many Americans find an hour's stay at church on Sunday hard to tolerate. Ramin Afra's Muslim religion is a bit more demanding. In Iran, he goes to a mosque two times and prays five times dally. "That's the major difference in living day today here." Afra said. There are other differences, he said. Groceries in Iran are bought at bazars which are much like American flea markets. Afra said. Although large grocery stores aren't uncommon, he said, food bought at the bazaars is usually fresher. Less than 40 percent of the population has a car. he said; most people travel by bus. In 1978. Afra left his hometown of Ahwaz. Iran, and came to Eau Claire to attend Regis High School. He applied to GW-Eau Claire during his senior year there aruj is now a sophomore living on campus. Afra had met Americans before he came to Wisconsin. His father, a university professor, was responsible for supervising American students. During the holding of the hostages In Iran. Afra said, he sensed some animos-Ity. "If the people knew me." he said, "there was no problem. Last year there were some people who said things. This year there has been no problem." Afra has not declared a major, but he said he is interested in photography and art. He said he may transfer to the Minneapolis School "In each country there are good and bad people." Though Afra found a lot to like about America, he said, "I like my country better than America.” And what traveler doesn't find that there's no place like home? Ramin AfraNorthern winters left Saudi cold by Kevin Volt There are some things Midwesterners can easily take for granted. One trait of this area, which some consider less than pleasant, is the cold, snowy winter. But Fawzi Awad, a sophomore from Saudi Arabia, doesn't take the white stuff for granted. He remembers the first time he sow snow. He thought It was "really different" from the balmy desert temperatures of his homeland. Before he came to Eau Claire. Awad spent time in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area. "I didn't like the Twin Cities at first because they were too cold,” he said. But somehow Awad became accustomed to the local climate, at least enough to study here. Awad's hometown is Jeddah, located near the Red Sea and the religious center of Mecca. Jeddah Is about the size of Eau Claire, he said. Since he had some American friends In Saudi Arabia. Awad said, he knew what to expect from Americans when he got here. He said he met some UW-Eau Claire graduates who suggested that he come here. Awad. then attending a language school In the Twin Cities, applied and was accepted at UWEC. The chance to travel afforded Awad some valuable lessons about people. "Most of the time, they are OK. I believe wherever you go. people need to know you. Sixty to 70 percent of the people are good." Awad added that the Twin Cities were very friendly and that the onslaught of questions foreigners receive did not bother him.Freshman from Hong Kong eiyoys UWEC but misses home cooking by Kevin Volt Although freshman Lawrence Sui Cheung Li misses the food of his native Hong Kong, his weight doesn't show he's been suffering. He gained two pounds over Christmas alone, and a total of seven since he’s come to the United States last fall. "Pizza was something new for me here." LI said. "I miss the chopsticks especially," Li said he has eaten at the Oriental restaurants in town to try to get the taste of home again. The effort was disappointing: "Food here is all Americanized," he said. U. a business administration major who plans to graduate from UW-Eau Claire, said his sister, who graduated from UWEC In 1961, suggested coming to the school. LI said he doesn't mind dorm life, and that he'll probably stay on campus for his first two years. His bedroom at home was for two people, he said, but was half the size of an average dorm room. Traveling In America is a different experience for Li. In Hong Kong, he said, the buildings are quite close together and one seldom has to travel far. because a store Is always close by. But LI said the drive between Eau Claire and Madison seems to take a very long time. U did not experience as much culture shock as some foreign students might. He said some American products are prominent In Hong Kong — Pepsi and Coke, for example. He was able to get a taste of American life even more when he was given the chance to travel over some areas of the western states and Canada a month before coming to Wisconsin. "I learned quite a bit from the papers." Li added. He has observed some differences in the culture, though. "People are more practical here,” he said. "Life Is more carefree. We dress up more In Hong Kong. We want a more decent presentation. We wouldn't wear jeans to class." Occasionally, U gets together with Oriental friends and plays handball. "We do more fitness and recreation things than go to parties or to Water Street," he said. U said he's experienced no hostility from the people he has met. "I get along well with most people." he said. Lawrence Sui Cheung U 41Above.

British soldser lined up for the changing of the guard ceremonies in the Tower of London Travel broadens students' horizons | by Kevin Voil The experience of attending a university is enough for many people; yet oth er students decide to enrich their college education even further with studies in foreign countries. UW Eau Claire offers study programs to seven countries: the (J.S.S.R., Mexico. Denmark. Germany, Sweden. Eng land and Japan. The length of the programs varies from one semester to a full school year. Cost, as well as a program's features, also varies. For example. a student could spend $900 for a semester of Soviet Union study In Wis consin coupled with a two-week tour of several Soviet cities. The singlesemes ter London program, while more expensive than the Soviet program, offers more students more for their money. The cost includes a continental tour, room. 15 meals a week, air transportation to and from Chicago, tuition and other features. In addition to the semester and yearlong programs, summer, interim, and wlnterim programs are offered. The cost of these trips ranges from $225 to $1,400. These shorter programs often focus on a single topic during the trip, foreign languages, for example. Thomas Lilly, assistant professor of art history, has led several shorter programs. He said that mid-America lacks the appreciation that Europe has. "Art is all around in Florence." Lilly said. "It is living." James Alexander, adviser for interna tional studies, said that his office assumes most of the arrangements Involved when enrolling in a foreign study program. All of the programs offered are open to UW-Eau Claire students. Some, though, may require students to learn the language of the country in which they are going to study. There is also a requirement of having a 2.75 gradepoint average. About 220 students took advantage of the foreign study program this year. Alexander said. Inflation is hurting the program a bit. he said, but the number of people participating In the programs has continued to steadily increase. Alexander said the benefits of study Ing abroad could never be listed completely "It adds an international dlmen sion to undergraduate education." Alexander said. Apparently the students think the programs are beneficial also "It's pretty neat to look through the eyes of a foreign student." Michael Stone wrote to Alexander. Stone, a junior business major, is taking part in this year's most popular program. Japan. "I've never been so enthusiastic to learn." he wrote. Another American student said her foreign study experience was a time for growing up; "I think we've all matured immensely."London fog lures UWEC student headed, survived), then nod and grin sheepishly as a House of Parliament guide accuses us of imitating the English government. Enormous, beautiful castles, and cathedrals. built as the towns' social, political and religious centers through the ages, are taken for granted by British descendants of those buried within them, but are mobbed by enthralled tourists. Journalists on bustling Fleet Street who for centuries fought for freedom of the press are now eating fish and chips wrapped in newspaper. Traditional pub life continues, however. There one can sit for hours over a lime and lager or an ale and discuss common concerns — inflation and unemployment — which never seem to change with time. An early start there is essential; bartime is 10:30 p.m. After a few near suicides by looking the wrong (literally right) way when crossing a heavily traveled road and asking for the bathroom instead of the "loo" when relief is desperately needed, one learns to adapt quickly to the British way of life. By the time the first real fog set in two months after our arrival In London, we knew that fags were only cigarettes, lorrie drivers were truckers and that services can only be received by lining up In a queue. London Is quite an experience for impressionable college students. It won't be long now before my bruises from playing rugby heal and my Vidal Sassoon punk hair cut grows out. Maybe then I'll stop craving high tea at 4 p.m. by Nick Schultz If cameras slung around our necks didn't betray our identity, then the hiking boots, ski jackets and lack of umbrellas branded us as typical Americans in search of the "London fog." Amid classes and traveling, no one ever thought to tell us that the fog. which is actually pollution, was cleared away years ago. Nor did anyone mention that the London Bridge is now In Arizona and the Tower of London is only two stories tall. With Admiral Nelson smiling down on us from Trafalgar Square. Big Ben singing to us each hour, and bored Buckingham Palace guards faithfully changing for us each day. however, we could hardly be disillusioned.

I heard the question often, and always responded. "Denmark." "Denmark. Wisconsin?" "No. you know, the one in Europe." I explained over and over before I left to go to school In Copenhagen. Cindy Zahn, Diane Dickie and I attended Copenhagen University under Denmark's International Studies program. along with 253 other students from the United States. Canada and Australia who came for courses in architecture, business studies, or general studies. Most of us lived with Danish families. When I arrived in Copenhagen, I wanted to buy an Ice cream cone. I walked Into the Ice cream shop and just stood at the counter. I didn't know how to order an Ice cream cone. And because I wasn't familiar with the currency, I didn’t even know how much It would cost. I felt like a 2-year-old. Four months later, sitting In Chicago's O'Hare airport. I was astonished by all the English I heard around me. At that moment. I realized how easily and quickly I had been assimilated Into the Danish culture. Though the standard of living is comparable to that of the United States, there are differences In values. Life runs at a slower pace in Denmark, and family ties are considered very important. Peo pie In Denmark are extremely fashion conscious, and politics is their main topic of conversation. Cultural events abound, and teatime Is still a strong tradition. I had heard from DIS alumni that "a Danish friend is a friend for life." That's a good representation of the Danish people. I found them to be warm, honest, fun-loving people with a talent for making you feel at home instantly. Since I've been home, friends have often asked me about my trip.

Student finds Denmark 'magical’Returning student suffers jitters, But learns, "Everything’s Cool’ by Karen Welch The digital clock on the dresser blinked: 7:31 a.m. I lay staring at It. an uneasy feeling nudging at my subconscious. As my brain sloughed off another layer of sleep. I flopped over onto my stomach and buried my face in the pillow. I am thirty-three years old.' I muttered to the pillowcase. "Much too old for first lay-of-school jitters." Yet there it was. that indefinable knot laying like clay in the pit of my stomach. I stared at the headboard. It had been thirteen years since I was a college sophomore. Now that I finally had the chance to return to school, so many doubts were there to fog my anticipation. I swung out of bed and turned on the shower. Standing with my eyes closed. I let the hot water stream over my shoul ders and tried to Imagine it washing away all my fears: Will I get lost trying to find my first class? How will I relate to those kids? (How will they relate to me?) Will I remember how to take notes? Can I still really concentrate? For thirteen years, mine had been a world of folded diapers. Playtex nursers. muddy little sneakers and nursery school field trips. My most weighty math problem had been how to stack seven kindergartners Into a Volkswagen. My physical fitness program consisted of postpartum shape ups and trips to the basement with the diaper pall. My current booklist boasted Childbirth Without Fear. The Joy of Cooking, and the unabridged adventures of Winnie the Pooh. How did I think I could handle Economic Entomology and the History of Journalism? How could I communicate with a liberated 27-year-old professor? Could I really ride my rusty three-speed up State Street hill? "You must be crazy." I scoffed, as I climbed into my jeans. (1 had bought them a month ago and washed them every day so they wouldn’t look new.) I made it out to the kitchen just in time to get the children off to school. I found lunch money for my fryear-old. reminded my 6-year-old to brush his teeth, and helped my 10-year-ok) find his socks. The words of my 12-year-old sage spoken the night before, kept echoing through my mind: "Mom? You're a neat lady, but aren't you a little old to be starting school?" I waved goodbye to the school bus and gave last minute instructions to the sitter who had come to watch the twins. I stacked my new notebooks into a six-year-old diaper bag, and grinned ludicrously as I buckled it into the baby seat on the back of my bike. "This really Is happening." I marvelled. as I peddled toward campus. I raised my face to the sun. and thought of all the years I had waited for this day. An exuberance began to take over my fear, and by the time I pulled my bike into a rack. I was eager and determined to enjoy this new beginning. "Now stop It!" I commanded to the inner voice that asked what I would do If I lost my bike-lock combination. "This is a new me. and I am capable." My first class was In a huge lecture hall already filled with students. I looked around at the fresh young faces, and fought the impulse to find an inconspicuous seat. Instead. I slid into a place in the third row. "HI. I'm Martha Jennings." I heard from the haze somewhere to my left. I looked over gratefully into the smiling eyes of a woman not quite twice myNeil nrp ttudent Karen Watch and her children pote for a family portrait. From left are David. Sarah and Paul In bach are Peter and the twins. Aaron and John age. "This Is my first science class in twenty-five years," she said. "And I'm a little nervous. How about you?" We laughed together and shared encourage ments until the lecture began. When the hour was over. I looked proudly at my two pages of notes, and wondered how the time could be up so soon. I strode confidently to my journalism class, and chose a seat In the first row. feeling comfortable about being there. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder. "Hey lady." I turned around, feeling a tiny grimace wrap around my insides. I had almost forgotten, for awhile, that that's what I was. A young freckled face beamed at me from the seat behind, and I almost expected him to ask me if his sneakers were dry yet. "C’n I borrow a pen?" (Why did I have to fight the urge to remind him to say please?) As I reached for my purse, it slipped out of my hands, and its contents clattered to the floor, rolling crazily under desks all around me. My face burned as I crawled about, gathering them up: billfold comb. checkbook, grocery list, diaper pins, two matchbox cars, a tiny squeaky rubber elephant, and a half-eaten Gerber teething biscuit. As I groped furtively hack into my seat. I peeked up at the pin-striped professor who was waiting to start class. His moustache twitched. I imagined his fingers drumming the podium. Turning nervously around. I reached out with the fateful pen. and felt a friendly pat on my clenched knuckles. Above the freckles, two blue eyes sparkled at me merrily. "Hey. lady," he grinned. "Everything's cool. Really. And thanks for the pen.” Somehow I made it through class and four pages of notes. My mind raced as I found my way back to the bike rack, and I felt a twinge of triumph as the lock clicked open. "One more hurdle." I breathed, as I swung out onto the street and shifted Into first gear. I stopped at the top of the hill and flopped down, panting, on the grass. The sun dappled through the tree and onto the grass beneath me. That same sun that had cheered and Inspired me this morning was now blinking proudly at me through the leaves. I had done It! The first awesome day was over, and the challenge had begun. I grinned absurdly as I clambered back onto my bike and started home. As I pulled onto my street. I saw a group of children lined up at the curb. They began waving and shouting and dancing around. My Welcoming Committee. "Hey. Mom! How'd It go?" "Didja get lost?" "Didja leam anything?" "Do you get recess at your school?" "Did you find a friend, Mommy?" "Were you scared?" I swung off my bike and tumbled Into a heap of hugs and questions and welcome-home kisses. As I gathered them all Into one enormous hug, I grinned. "Hey. you guys." I whispered. "You know what? Everything's cool." 47Outreach reaches to community by Peggy Carlson Thick, soft quilts, cross-country skis, body language, glistening stained glass of many colors, and puppets share common ground at CJW-Eau Claire. They are some of the 198081 Outreach Workshop subjects. Outreach began four years ago and now offers 51 workshops and seminars during the academic school year to community members and (JWEC students. "More and more people are returning to school." Outreach Coordinator Roy Salgo said. "Outreach provides communication with the university for community members." Outreach offers both and non-credit courses. The non-credit courses are short and geared to update a profession, or serve a general education or self-enhancement purpose. Salgot said. Courses for university credit are those regularly taught as night classes at CiWEC Some people are hesitant to return to school, Salgo said, and Outreach can help them. "There is a wall or between the university and the community to overcome." Salgo said. "Noncredit courses break this." He said the topic determines class size. "All we do is not big and magnificent." he said. "Some courses are small and limited. Some are as large as 130 people."

Hanson Environmental factor , such a cigarette »making and possibly caff Wo consumption, have been United to certain types of cancer. Cancer. For some people, It is one of the most frightening words they can hear. It is often equated with hospitals, pain and death. And It seems as though everyone has a story to tell about someone who has had cancer. It Is second only to heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States. Yet despite its common occurrence in society, the disease is often shrouded in myths and half-truths. Helena Jones, who teaches the new biology of cancer course at UWEau Claire, said some people accumulate "Just enough information (about cancer) to make them afraid." That's the reason the biology department added the course on cancer to its curriculum this spring. The course is meant to dispel the myths and give students a working knowledge of the disease. When some of the fear about cancer Is eliminated, Jones said, people can deal with it better. The course focuses on the more common human cancers and also covers the history, causes, diagnoses and treat ments of cancer. Jones teaches the first several class sessions, but the majority of lectures are given by local and visiting physicians The two redit course is offered Tues day evenings as part of the general education program. No background in biological sciences is necessary. Jones said, so that more people are able to take the course. It is offered evenings so community people can come hear the lectures. Jones said the official enrollment for the course was 122 students this spring, but that several community members also attended. Most of the students In the course are there because they know someone who has had cancer. Jones said. Peg Carlson, a student in the course, said she took the course because "It (cancer) has occurred so regularly In my family." Carlson's father, uncle, and two aunts have all had cancer. All survived. she said. Carlson said the cancer class has helped her. "I understand it now. and I’m less afraid." she said. She said the class doesn't scare her. "It reassures me."Some mintcooxe are more »trcnuou« than other , a the e emerctung participant will testify Minicourses offer maximum benefit Who would want more courses after a full day of classes at (JW-Eau Claire? About 450 people decided they did, and reigstered for first semester minicourses in such areas as wine appreciation. belly Oriental dance, rosemalirtg or Japanese. Paula Stuettgen, who coordinates the minicourses, said the non-credit courses are offered to students, faculty, staff and their family for a minimum registration fee. (JWEC has been offering the minicourses since 1974. she said, and each year the program expands. This year's first semester registration set a record for the program, she said. The majority of minicourse participants are undergraduates. Stuettgen said, but there are many faculty participants. too. "There's a good mixture of students and faculty — about 65 percent students. and 35 percent faculty." she said. "There’s a good range of ages, too." As coordinator. Stuettgen prepares the list of minicourses and finds instructors to teach them. Stuettgen said she has had some problems In finding Instructors to each the new classes, but that people shouldn't be afraid of having to meet educational requirements to teach a class. "All you need is to be proficient in an area and have a willingness to teach." she said. "You don't have to be an expert." There are no strict limitations on course content, either, she said. "Generally, instructors come to me with ideas, and if an idea isn't too outlandish. we try it." Stuettgen said. She said minicourses have a high dropout rate because of their non-credit status. But the students who stick with the program do so for a variety of reasons A Jauercise participant said she likes the exercise her minicourse offers. "It's a break from the same old grind," a person in beginning belly Oriental dance said. The Instructors, too. say they benefit from the minicourses. Yoshika Edmund son, a native of Japan and a GWEC graduate who teaches a minicourse in Japanese, said she enjoys her students showing an interest in Japanese culture. "This they get only by understanding a different culture's way of thinking. It's basically the feeling of it." she said. Another instructor said he believes he has a cultural mission to teach his minicourse in wine appreciation. Jerry Erh-meyer, the coordinator of the GWEC Cooperative Education program, said the best aspect of teaching is "the op portunlty to share my enthusiasm about something that Is a personal avocation, a hobby, for me." Other subjects covered by the first semester minicourses were bicycle repair. hi-fi maintenance, history of comic books, resume writing, cartooning and photography. Si- Commitment needed in nursing by Judy Pokwinski Commitment. That Is on essential part of being a nurse and caring for people, said Suzanne Van Ort. dean of the School of Nursing. To measure a student's Inter est In and feeling for people. Van Ort said, the nursing school screens appll cants by a paper the student writes. The Nursing program at CIW-Eau Claire began in 1965 and is growing with a development of a faculty with doctoral degrees In nursing. It will offer a masters of science degree In nursing beginning next fall. The school also offers a balanced undergraduate program of theory and practice in nursing. Mary Saber, a junior nursing student, said that hospital and laboratory work, which is in addition to the lectures, adds a burden to her schedule. However, she said, the clinical part of her education Is the most valuable. "You just can't store four years of learning and remember It." she said. Clinical work applies what the student has learned and helps the student remember it. she said. Clinical work also helped Saber build her confidence. "Anything new is stressful." she said But the program builds upon previous experience and gradually gives the student more responsibility, she said. A 1980 nursing graduate also praised the school. "Our program is excellent because it prepares you to look at the whole situation." Nanzy Zimmerman said. A registered nurse has many manage rial responsibilities and must do a lot of research, she said "The management class is common sense but it (the Information) needs to be told," she said. And although she hated doing research last year, she said, it is important in nursing, as she's discovered. Zimmerman was on a committee that devised a teaching program at Community Memorial Hospital in Meno monee Falls, where she works, for pa tients who have had strokes. Even though the school covers reality shock to try to prepare students for their first jobs. Zimmerman said, she encountered it when she began work. At school the student works in ideal situation. she said, with a maximum load of six patients. But now. as a team leader in her hospital, she has a Impatient load, with a maximum of 30 patients on the night shift. Zimmerman is one of the 90 to 95 students who graduate every year from the nursing school. The nursing school has the highest placement record on campus. Van Ort said, and a good reputation because of the graduates' success. At left. Karen Witt watches as Jean Poch Pochebut practices giving an iniunctlon. Below, students leern proper sterile techniqueYoung members learn mechanics of Senate by Lynn Werner Many students seem to think the Student Senate does little or nothing, but on the contrary. It passed some Important pieces of legislation this year. Besides the organized activities' bud get, the Senate also approved the escort service, after two years of work, President Pat Thompson said. The service provides women who live off-campus with an escorted ride home at night. A walk-up program for women who live on campus is being considered also, Thompson said. Three other major bills were products of the Academic Affairs Commission, chaired by James Brandes. The commission developed a bill on mandatory syllabuses, one on a manda tory grading policy and another on a “dead week" before final examinations All were taken to the Faculty Senate, where only the latter passed. "That was a disappointment for me," Brandes said. The Mandatroy Syllabus Bill passed both the Student Senate’s Academic Affairs Commission and the Faculty Senate's Academic Policies Committee unanimously before Its defeat in the Faculty Senate. The Academic Affairs Commission has been working closer with the faculty this year. Brandes said. It Is better to work on something together and make a joint proposal, he said. Like the Academic Affairs Commission. the Senate has been working close ly with the administration. Vice-President Lisa Brennan said. The Escort Service Bill, for example, would have never passed if the administration had not made several suggestions. Brennan said. The 24-hour visitation issue resurfaced. and this time the Senate is coop erating with University Housing, she said. The question of adding metered parking behind Davies Center also resurfaced. The Senate originally passed the bill, but reopened the issue a week later. The Senate seemed to have a more serious attitude this year. Thompson said. Because of the large amount of young senators. 14 of whom were elected this fall, the Senate is not bogged down in traditional thinking. Thompson said. "I think if they stick with It, the Stu dent Senate here is going to be strong and effective." he said. Although the youthfulness is good for new ideas, it also can cause problems. Thompson said. The newer senators are inhibited and do not state their opinions as freely as the more experienced senators. Brandes said. Dennis Murphy, elected for the First time this fall, said it is often because they do not know the issues as well. He said he listens to facts brought up by experienced senators but Is not always persuaded by their arguments "It's good to see how a governing body works and what It does," he said. Finals: Temporary Trauma, then enormous relief by Vicki Griffith They descend on the campus twice a year, once in December and once in May. They ruin Christmas plans and interrupt the tanning schedule. When they come they seem unbearable, and then when they're over they remain only a faint memory lodged deep in the mind, •'They.’ of course, are finals — a part of every college student's life, a part of life that would be better if it only didn't happen. For many, finals have a way of creeping up out of nowhere. While still recovering from midterm tests some professor will nonchalantly mention one day in class that there are only two weeks left in the semester and that everyone should remember that the final will be comprehensive. The heart starts pump ing. the stomach begins churning and a cold sweat begins popping out on your forehead as you realize that you haven't read a word of the 1,000 pages of outside readings or started the 20 chapters left in the book since midterms. But just wait — the panic has only begun. Student fthould give ample thought to an exam qumtion before writing Finals begin with a study day. For some students that is what it is. but for others it's the one last fling before finals begin. Spring is especially conducive to the partying aspect of study day. Many students head to Big Falls with coolers full of liquid refreshments and no books, all in the attempt to forget that finals are starting. Sometimes It seems that finals week should be renamed "caffeine" week. Sales of No-Doz, Tab, Coke. Mountain Dew. coffee and tea reach new highs. Also students begin to take on new and different personalities. After three days of finals the wear and tear begins to take its toll. A normal, healthy college student will age in one short week. First bags creep under the eyes. Each day they get larger and darker until by the end of the week the student's face is one huge bag. Then the tight smile appears and the student may force a laugh. Finally the student's clothes be gin to look as if they have been lived In. They have.Al left. Mary Power concentrates on the task at hand Below. Donna Sanders watches her newsw riling clast take the final esam Everyone ha a finals story: staying up all night, drinking an eight-pack of Tab. and then being so nervous that your hand won't stop shaking as you take the test. Or having to write a political commercial, a documentary and a teleplay in one night and having them due the same day of your ' big" final. Or pulling an all-nighter only to fall asleep and miss the final. One Eau Claire junior was somewhat tense during one of his finals his sophomore year. "I was taking this long test in one of the big lecture halls and placed my foot in an awkward position, ' he said. "I didn't notice It, but my foot fell asleep. After I Finished the test I got up to hand it in and fell down the steps." Each finals week has its own unique personality. There Is nothing like listening to Bing Crosby sing "White Christmas" or getting a phone call from home "just to let you know that the Christmas tree is up and looks beautiful." to make you ask yourself why you go to school. Spring finals are sometimes harder. The weather in May is usually warm and sunny and you have a good start on a tan. Who hasn't at one time tried to study outside and ended up playing fris-bee or just basking in the sun? It all ends after a week, though. For any college student there is nothing like finally being done. Some celebrate by going out for one last party; others pack up and go home to life without tests and wonderful long nights of sleep.Robert Coles by Peg Carlson Instead of viewing children as untamed creatures soci ety should give them more credit for their moral observe Uons. Dr. Robert Coles said. Coles, a Harvard University health services research psychiatrist, spoke at the first Forum lecture In the I960 series. He discussed children’s moral and psychological development. “All of us have a hunger for some meaning in life and children are especially sensitive to this.” Coles said Coles said people should ask themselves, "What do I believe in? What will I go through on its behalf?" To illustrate. Coles told the story of a wealthy farm owner's son. The boy told his teacher he did not want to be rich because he would not go to heaven. When the teacher asked him where he got that Idea, he said he had heard it In church. The teacher told him not to take the Bible literally, and the principal said the boy was going through a stage Later, the boy wrote that there was blood on the hands of many people In the country and that there would be blood on his hands if he did not treat the migrant workers on his father’s farm better The boy was then sent to Dr. Benjamin Spock and kept away from church. When the boy was seen helping migrant workers in the fields, he was sent to his room for the day. He ran away and was returned by the police. He was sent to a psychia trist. who reported that the boy had a problem with authority and needed help. After only a few Saturday sessions with a therapist the boy was declared to be "better.” Follow up studies showed that never again did such instances happen This indicates. Coles said, that the child's beliefs had been stifled. Coles said that we teach children to conform to society's expectations. "We don’t need these therapists telling us ’I under stand, I know where you're coming from.' or asking us 'do you want to talk about It?"' Coles said. Coles said society has become so understanding that no one is held accountable for anything anymore. He said everything is becoming acceptable, and it is time that people use their own values to judge good. bad. right or wrong for themselves SOLeo Buscaglia by Kris Halbig The mos» important goal In life Is to establish mean ingful. loving, eating relationships. Leo Buscaglia said at an Oct. 2 forum. Buscaglia, a special education professor at the University of Southern California, seemed to repeat much what he said in 1977, when he last spoke at UW-Eau Claire. He again stressed sharing, caring and Intimacy. The only alternative to this, he said, is loneliness and despair. The audience responded enthusiastically, al ternating cheers, laughter, and applause The Forum was sold out as well as televised over cable television for both appearances. Human relationships, complex and varied, can be strengthened by realizing they are not "I and me" relationships, but "us and we" relationships, he said. People are so involved with themselves that they have become separated from others. "We don't know how to reach out anymore." he said. Buscaglia said people should observe and love the differences between people. While similarities draw people together, differences keep them together, he said. But differences may also cause pain. Buscaglia said both pain and crises are ways of learning. Death, which causes not only pain, but fear and loneliness as well, reminds us that we must live life to its fullest "The only reality we know is that you are alive now ... be spontaneous, listen to your own voices and respond to them ... We're all too damn sane. Predictability is a bore." Showing you care is easy. Buscaglia said. "Hugging is free. You have all the equipment Just go for it." People need to be able to express their love without fear. Relationships need intimacy and closeness, he said, though he warned that sex and closeness are not the same thing. Closeness is. to a great extent, built through communication Time to talk, listen and relate to one another is essential "You must realize that a loving relationship is not necessarily an agreeing relationship .. but communication is necessary to keep It loving" "If you expect the honeymoon to last forever, you’ll be disappointed." Buscaglia said "Realize there are many honeymoons." He advised people to be as vital and alive as they can be. "Find the joy for making others comfortable. Assume people are good. Love many things intensely. Strive for continual growth and change. Seek healthy people who laugh and are silly. Help others, and If you can’t help them, ot least don’t hurt them." After his speech, Buscaglia hugged Chancellor Leonard Haas and Dorellen Haas, to whom the Forum was dedicated. Approximately 200 people remained after the speech to receive a Buscaglia hug. James Kilpatrick by Rhonda Sander "Something close to a revolution has taken place In the American political process." James J. Kilpatrick said as he spoke at an October 22 Forum. Kilpatrick supported his statement by giving his opinions on the status of the doctrine of federalism, the twoparty system, the nominating process and the power of the president. Kilpatrick Is probably best known for his role in the "Point-Counterpoint” segment of the CBS program. "60 Minutes." Kilpatrick it also a syndicated colujmnist: his column. "A Conservative View. appears in more than 400 newspapers throughout the country. Kilpatrick mixed his views with bits of history, anecdotes and personal experiences. And through his comments ran his wish to move politics and government back to “the way they were." "I'm sure you have guessed I'm not much on reform." he said. "It seems as if it always turns out badly." The old doctrine of federalism and separation of powers is crumbling away. Kilpatrick said. Powers of the states are being trespassed on by the federal government, he said, and the Judiciary is becoming involved In the legislative function. Congress is encroaching upon the executive branch, he said. Kilpatrick said he "fears and resents this transfer of power." The traditional twoparty system is drifting away, he said. "What we have now is government by shifting bipartisan coalitions." He said the problem with this Is that it lacks discipline. There are no party allegiances which leaves no means to reward faithful party workers and no way to punish defecting members Kilpatrick said the nominating process also has lost its importance. By the time the parties hold their national conventions, the nominating has already been done. The conventions are obsolete. Kilpatrick also said the open primary "makes a travesty of the two-party system." Finally. Kilpatrick spoke on the nature of presidential powers. He described recent presidents as "caged, cribbed and confined." Programs proposed by the president are hardly recognizable by the time they get through the bureaucracy, he said. Despite criticisms of the American syatemn. Kilpatrick end ed his address optimistically. "Lots of things are wrong In the United Slates,” he said. “But I believe from the bottom of my heart, there are a lot more things right."r Maya Angelou by Lori Lau As Moya Angelou. the speaker, was Intorduced, the crowd of several hundred politely applauded her, as Forum crowds usually do. But Angelou acknowledged the applause, then responded by graciously applauding the crowd. An unusual gesture for most speakers. but then this was not the usual speaker Angelou. 52. has gained fame as a singer, educator, dancer, author, historian, lecturer, actress, producer, editor, songwriter and playwright. Her formal education ended ofter high school, yet she speaks six languages fluently. But she hadn't come to speak about her own success. She had a message for the people of Eau Claire. And although she told the crowd "my topic Is alleged ly 'Women in Business." she soon got around to discussing what she really wanted to talk about — the survival of the human species Angelou spoke with just a trace of a Southern accent, evidence of her Depression-era upbringing In Stamps. Ark., smiling frequently as she warmed to her subject. Maya Angeiau talk Informally with »ludml» before her Forum appearance "I think women are phenomenal." she said. "If women are phenomenal, it follows that men are also phemonemal Nature abhors Imbalances — it won’t tolerate one very long. Anyone who thinks nature is obliged to keep us here is forgetting the Tyrannosaurus Rex and other species that got out of balance She said few humans live up to their potential because of enslavement. Not physical enslavement, she said, but a sense of worthlessness that "prohibits people from reaching for the stars " That worthlessness is caused by sex Ism. racism, and ' any of these kinds of isms." she said. She sprinkled her talk with quotations from Paul Laurence Dunbar. Mark Twain and Terrence of Africa to illustrate her points Terrence's "I am a human being; nothing human can be alien to me" is the kind of thinking needed to "reduce to ashes" the barriers between human beings, she said. "Try to be the person you respect most." she advised the students in the crowd Keep your heroes and she roes' olive in your heart.” She also encouraged them to meet and survive defeat. "A diamond, with time and pressure becomes the strongest and most pre clous element." she said. "Defeat can be used. It becomes another circle on your crown." People have to realize that they must pay for what they take, she said. "You won't always get wha you pay for." she said, quoting her mother "But you'll always pay for what you get " So students should go after their goals, she said, but they shouldn't ex pect to achieve those goals without sac rtfke And they should examine their goals to make sure they are worth the price. Angelou received a standing ovation, and again applauded the audience. She then answered all the questions asked, although Forum speakers usually do not take time to answer them all. and honored a request for a song, even though she said with a smile, "these days I only sing in church — or after enough wine."Photos by Cathy Acherman Chancellor Leonard Haas tefls the audience that hit wife.

Cathy Acherman and Greg Kot share some season's greetings under the mistletoe 71Death of a Salesman by Karen Boehme The University Theater brought Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" to the Riverside Theater Oct. 27-31 and Nov. 1-8. The American classic came to life under Wil Denson's direction and through fine performances by Art Moss as Willy Loman and Scott Kearney as his son Biff. The play's theme, the fallacy of the American dream, is relevant even today. 31 years after the play's premiere. Moss's Willy had the sense of horror of a man watching himself slowly lose touch with reality. Conversations with others in the pre sent trailed off Into conversations with those in the past, as seen through Willy's rose-tinted memory. His decline ends in his suicide, the death of the universal salesman. Miller's play is basically strong, but a few aspects of the University Theater's production weakened it. Moss constantly bellowed his lines, representing what should be a fragile, tired old man as somewhat of a raving madman. The play was performed full-length; a few cuts would have picked up its rather slow pace. One of the saving graces of the production was Kearney's portrayal of Biff. Biff is at once hero and villain. He is a hero In that he recognizes the worthlessness of the dreams that have sustained his father for years and admits that he cannot live for those dreams. But he is also a villain because by realizing the wrongness of the dreams and trying to make his father realize it as well. Biff robs Willy of the other things that meant anything to him. Kearney captured the anguish of this paradox, making his Biff believable and human.Right — Amy Jackson, as Flannery O'Connor. make a polnl with the audience Below — The Grandmother (Carol Zippd). the Mother (Amy Bloschke). and Bailey (David Geiger) wait foe the Misfit's next move Far below — Bailey makes an observation to his family as they travel on their vacation. 74 To Pass by the Dragon by Karen Boehme "To Pass by the Dragon," an unusual adaptation of two stories by Flannery O’Connor, came to the Kjer Theater stage Dec. 9-13. The Southern writer's stories. "A Good Man is Hard To Find" and "Revelation" were compiled by Dwight Conquergood into a production that gave a flavor of O'Connor's wit and her ability to blend comedy and tragedy. Director William E. McDonnell led his cast through an interesting, though at times uneven, performance of a different kind of play. The play opened with an explanation of O'Connor's work by O'Connor herself. played by Amy Jackson. She introduced the first story. "A Good Man Is Hard To Find." telling the audience that she would prefer that a reader enjoy her story than "understand" It. The plot of the story involves the murder of a vacationing family of six by an escaped convict called the Misfit and his two accom plices. The actors and the narrator spoke not only dialogue but the character-developing thoughts that O'Connor gives them in her stories. The set was minimal, forcing the audience to con centrate on the actors. Not all of the ac tors in the production stood up well to this extra attention, but Carol Zippel as the grandmother who achieves what O'Connor calls "her moment of grace" right before being shot by the Misfit, gave a fine performance in the role of a proper, but somewhat confused, old woman. The second story. "Revelation.” presented the slow discovery of a fine but prejudiced woman that there are no definite categories into which "they” and "us" fit. This woman. Ruby Turpin, played by Cindy Greening, is assaulted and called a "Wart hog from hell" by a disturbed young woman who listened to her comments about "niggers" and "white trash" in a doctor's crowded waiting room. This incident so bothers Ruby that she waits until she is alone in her field and shouts at God: "Who do you think you are?" for allowing her to be humiliated. Greening captured Ruby's class consciousness and sense of her own "decency" without coming across as a bigot. Her revelation comes in a vision of all the groups that she puts people in marching toward her; the groups melt together, as they do in the real world. O'Connor's stories may not always be realistic, but her characters are real, be lievable; the audience (and the reader) can identify with them. Conquergood's adaptation of these stories to the stage show another dimension to O'Connor's short stories, and the University Theater gave the theater audience in Eau Claire an opportunity to sec something different.

This Gilbert and Sullivan melodramatic opera made no pretense of being grand opera (and. in fact, poked fun at It), but It was great opera. ''Pirates” is a witty blend of memorable tunes, witty dialogue and lyrics and rapidfire paradoxes and absurdities. Who would believe that pirates drink sherry by the tankardful as they do In the opening scene? Or that Frederic, the dedicated, apprenticed pirate, would renounce his comrades and fight against them the moment his apprenticeship is up? Director Wil Denson described this phenomenon as the "other worldliness” of Gilbert and Sullivan. He captured this feeling by directing his players to play up the caricature in each one's character, by dressing them in bright, frilly costumes and by making them up with rosy cheeks, wigs and putty noses. These details were important, but more important was the caliber of the cast. Thax Cunio played Frederic with the arrogant self-righteousness that comes from being a "slave of duty" (which is the subtitle of the opera.) Heidi Hayes as Mabel demonstrated not only a sparkling soprano but the acting ability and sense of humor it takes to play a Gilbert and Sullivan heroine. Randy Bichler not only sang with power and vibrance, he captured the Pirate King's wordly wisdom and mild cynkism: "I don’t think much of our profession (piracy), but. contrasted with respectability, it is comparatively honest." The members of the choruses (the pirates. Maj. Gen. Stanley's daughters and the policemen) made each group work as a single "character;" no one stood out. They spoke In unison and blended well while singing. Frederic's nurse-turned-piratical-maid of-all-work, Ruth, came alive in Debra Lahmann's alto and comic timing. Scott Kearney played Maj. Gen. Stanley as the stereotyped English retired military man. The Sergeant of Police, played by William Lueth, was a model of a brusque, but somewhat reluctant guardian of society. The pirate of Peruance mug for the camera. The sets were simple; a rocky coast and a ruined chapel In the moonlight. The orchestra, under the direction of Ruper Hohmann. played well despite burial In the orchestra pit. Richard Johnson was the musical director. One of GWEC's strengths was that it kept close to the spirit of Gilbert and Sullivan. The charm and the art of Gilbert and Sullivan is the ability to take the audience somewhere else and allow them to laugh at the characters and. in an indirect way. themselves. By sticking with that same pretense of almost pure entertainment, and through execution, the University Theater and the department of music brought "The Pirates of Penzance" to life and to our imaginations.Frederic.

During the preceding five nights, more than 1,500 people had experienced Cabaret IV (for one does not merely "see” it; one "experiences" it). During each three-and-ahalf hour performance. the audience was "razzle-daz-zled" with all the glitter and excitement of Broadway musicals and entertainment which took them to such faraway places as Spain, Paris. London, the Tim Bradley and Pol Mock a the Scarecrow and Tin Man. plan a trip to Or with Sandy Thurow. Dorothy Lyle Kohlhepp is held aloft as South Pacific sailor sing of their longing for female companySouth Pacific and then back to Oklahoma. Kansas. New York and Chicago. Cabaret IV was a three-ring floor show of dancing, singing and just plain fun put on by (JW-Eau Claire students in January. Refreshments were sold in a corner of the Council Fire Room in Da vies Center during student nights, and a dinner was served the other nights. At the front, the orchestra was on the main stage. Two more stages were set up at the sides of the room. Master of Ceremonies Valerius Knob loch, who also produced and directed the show, worked his way through the audience between acts, talking with people and letting them answer his questions into his microphone. An imitated German accent was just one of the tricks he used to help his audiences enjoy the show. And so it began. As the opening song. "Wilkommen," began, the entire cast (no small number), dressed in black suits with white shirts and black bow ties, danced around the stages, did a bit of chorus line kick and essentially gave the audience a first taste of what was ahead. From there Knobloch led the audi- Laila Robin sing ot love during the Grease" section ol the cabaret ence (or as he would say. "Meine Da-men und Herren") through the can-can, and songs like "Fascinatin'' Rhythm" and "I Got Rhythm." Them it was off to the other side of the world where the sailors were singing of their loneliness in the South Pacific and how there is "nothing like a dame.” A few vocal and dance solos slowed the pace a little between the peppy musical show numbers. The star of the "Wizard of Oz" section was not the Lion, the Tinman, the Scarecrow, or even Dorothy. It was Toto (“yes. Toto. too"). Played by Daisy. a little terrier from the Eau Claire area, he ran circles around Dorothy's legs as she skipped along the yellow brick road. Now it was the 1950s in America, and “Grease” was the word. It must have been the sight of all those men moving around in blue jeans and flexing their arms against white T-shirts that got the girls in the audience shrieking. (Who says the '50s are dead?) During the intermission the band played on, and couples from the audience got up to dance to the music of the university jazz band. From "A Chorus Line." the performers did a sequence illustrating the self doubts and fears a performer has during an audition. They showed the defeat and also the joy which may be involved. Then there was more dancing, more singing, more sparkling costumes and colored lights. As the evening began coming to a close, the performances reflected more of the Old West musicals. An emotional solo of "Old Man River." was followed by parts of "Shenandoah." There were songs and scenes from "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Oklahoma!” Although the show lasted more than three hours, when It was all over and the entire cast had joined once again to sing "Life is a Cabaret." the audience still did not leave. The jazz band played old favorites. (Including "In the Mood") and the people stayed, dancing for another hour. Then it was over. The people went home. The band stopped Make up and costumes were removed. But the night was not forgotten, It was an experience sure to be remembered for a long, long time. 79St Valentine’s Day Above.

The audience is ready for tonight's performer. When the performer finally is Introduced and begins, the magic of the Cabin begins. For years the only type of entertainment brought to students by the Cabin Committee was music; folk singing, jazz and swing, piano and nightclub entertainment. This year, however, the committee brought In more unusual entertainment. First there were the two storytellers from Dallas. The 12 Moon Storytellers, tell Indian stories and Mark Twain-like stories. Then there were the Cats Cinder the Stars, a trio of men from Minneapolis who did swing music — a cappella. (They were the ones who wore the Hawaiian shirts and dressed like new wave singers.) Don't forget the band from New York that brought Eau Claire a bit of the Old Country with traditional songs from England and Scotland — bagpipes and tambour included. Ragtime and jazz musician Byron Quam brought out the Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong fans with his piano playing and scat singing. "All In all. we had a pretty different year." said Paula Stuettgen, student activities advisor. "This year we did all kinds of weird stuff." The Cabin Committee is made up of about IS (JW-Eau Claire students who want to be involved in determining who will perform. They meet twice each semester and listen to about 40 or 50 demo tapes and albums. From these, they select six professional coffeehouse performers. The other ten weekends each semester are left for student performers and open stages. Students who wish to audi tion for their own nights as performers can do so by performing at the open stages. Some of the returning professional coffeehouse singers began as student performers in the Cabin. Stuettgen said It's kind of nostalgic to have them beck, she said. Then there are the old favorites who keep coming back each year. This year one of them was Stephen Baird, who helped legalize street singing in Boston. Another was Gil Plotkin. a particular favorite with the Cabin people, because of the crowd he always draws and be- Ditty Colby, a frwhman. wa» on of the student performer at the Cabtn thit year. cause he is easy to work with. The man-woman duet of Spiritwood was one of the first semester's real crowd pleasers. Their combination of piano, guitar, voice and spirit was well-received by the students who packed into the Cabin and even spilled out Into the Blugold Room during the three nights of Spiritwood's performances. The open stage nights for students often showed surprisingly good talent. There were songs, a bit of dancing about, some stories and even a few good (and bad) jokes. After a night at the Cabin, the audience. which was not always just university students (parents and high schoolers came. too), seemed reluctant to leave. The magical spell of wonder and fine entertainment which holds students every weekend lives on long after the song is over. 82A VNational Theater by Cherle Phillips With a carnival of colors displayed In sweeps and swirls across the stage, the National Chinese Opera The ater from Taiwan brought Chinese mythology alive for Eau Claire The Arena was about half-filled on Halloween night when the theater group performed four traditional Chinese myths In song and dance. The first. "The Bottle on the Chang Pan Slope." was the most visually oriented. Costumed in brilliant silks of green, gold, silver, red and blue, wearing face masks of stage makeup, and waving three-foot pheasant feathers and silk scarves, the performers made a human kaleldescope with their movements. Some scenes were performed more with gymnastics than with what could be considered traditional acting and dancing. There were flying leaps, mld-alr spins and somersaults In "The Leopard." characters portraying the demon Leopard and the Omnipotent Monkey fought about the Leopard's plan to marry a beautiful young girl. Watching the fight was a little like watching the high-wire act at a circus. The movements of the two fighters were daring and almost breathtaking In their apparent defiance of the law of gravity. The music of the orchestro was loud ond rhythmic By American music standards. this opera music's intentions were to keep the beat rather than to play a melody. The orchestra consisted of eight men playing gongs, flutes, several guitar-llke Instruments and drums. The troupe stopped to play In Eau Claire while on a 25-city tour of the United States. Photo by Cathy APinchas Zukerman by Karen Boehme Magic came to the arena Oct. 1, at least as far as local connoisseurs of chamber music were concerned. Pinchas Zukerman, world renowned violinist, come both to conduct and ploy with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. The concert marked Zukerman's debut as the group's musical director Although Zukerman ably led the orchestra through the first piece in on all-Mozart program, the ‘Adagio and Fugue In C minor," he brought the first half of the concert to o climax when he played along In the "Violin Concerto No 5." Using his bow as a baton while not playing. Zukerman used his body to conduct while playing. Neither his ploying nor his conducting suffered. Zukerman literally • plays” the music; he ts like a child, joyous and physical In enjoying what he is playing. The second half was devoted to Mozart's "Symphony No. 41," which is more fomous as the "Jupiter," Under Zuker man s direction, the orchestra proved Its own virtuosity by playing sensitively and wringing every nuance from one of Mozart's greatest symphonies Zukerman has said that he prefers playing to conducting, ond that his goal is "to moke better music." Stephen Rubin of The New York Times said It best; "There may be fiddlers around with a bigger sound or a more bravura technique, but there are few with more soul." New Zealand band and Maori dancers by Margaret LeBrun Sparkling silver and gold instruments amidst 52 bright red uniforms commanded attention at the University Arena Oct 6. The first Impressions of the National Band of New Zealand were Indicative of the bold. Informal, yet professional performance that followed. As a true brass band, with no reed or woodwind instruments, the National Band of New Zealand performed a type of enter-talnbment rarely seen in North America. The band captivated the audience with musical quality, humor and even a sample of New Zealand’s native dances by the Aotearoa Maori dances. Throughout the first numbers, the National Band proved its merits as 'the world's foremost concert brass band,” with a certain robust, distinct air. Between the brief selections, the "compere” (emcee) provided interludes of lesser formality with light humor - exchanged in a British accent, of course. Then came the Maori dancers. Their initial presence startled the audience as a male dancer began shouting chants of the "haka,” which means "war dance" (but is used for all forms of Moor! dance). The dancers' performance was a sudden shocking contrast to the band's performance. Obviously, the only connection between the two types of entertainment was their geographical bond. The Maori group perfromed the "por dance." a graceful dance in which soft flaxen balls were twirled at the end of lengths of cord. They swung the balls in Increasingly intricate patterns in time to the Hawaiian-like story telling songs After the Maori’s second dance, the band ployed "Bugler's Holiday” in a delightfully smooth rendition. Each trumpet chimed In with polished clearness and bright staccato. Following this selection, every song played was well known; "Hungarian Rhapsody No 2," an Elvis Presley medley, and "The Stars and Stripes Forever."The Threepenny Opera by Karen Boehme The cynical words of Bertolt Brecht and the haunting melodies of Kurt Weill came together in The Threepenny Opera. their adaptation of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. The Midwest Opera Theater, the touring arm of the Minnesota Opera, brought the 1928 work to Gantner Concert Hall Nov. 24. The company did an excellent job with Brecht's biting dialogue and lyrics and Weill's music. The Music suggested the German musk hall of the 1920s: dipped delivery of singing and accompaniment, suggestive lyrics to bump and grind melodies, both reminiscent of the tawdry, painted world of smoky night clubs in Berlin. This production was set in Washington, D.C. instead of London's SoHo district, as the original. The plot centered around Macheath, or Mack the Knife, a professional criminal and his involve ment with Polly Peachum. daughter of Jonathon Peachum. a man who outfits people In beggars' clothes and props and takes a commission from what they can panhandle. Weill's music and Brecht's libretto worked well together; both expressed, in sarcastic but honest words and unusual and discordant music, man's shortcomings. The company, especially Gary Briggle as Macheath and Mary Fre drkkson as Polly's mother, proved that good singers can be fine actors. The Threepenny Opera is the obvious child of Bertolt Brecht. His satire of capitalism and the bourgeoisie is biting and on target; he sees and represents the world as it is. Weill's music, often stark and discordant, echoed Brecht's theme of alienation between people by their mutual leeching and distrust. Yet Brecht leaves the audience with a pseudo-happy ending, apparently leaving mankind a chance to improve itself. Brecht and Weill's Threepenny Opera may not have been escapist fare, but it did give the folks in Eau Claire something to think about.Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine by Jody Conner The blues came to Schofield Audito rium Feb. 7 In the form of a short Black woman with a great big voice. Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine performed as part of Black History Month, sponsored by the Black Student League. Taylor Is a performer of powerful Chi cago blues. What her voice lacks in range Is made up in raw strength. She doesn't sing from her throat — she reaches deep within her body for a grav elly growl perfectly suited to her music. During the evening, Taylor tore through blues classics made famous by herself and others. "Big Boss Man." "Spoonful.'’ "I Got My Mojo Working" — all went down under her onslaught. The show both peaked and ended with a charged version of her blues hit, "Wang Dang Doodle ." When Taylor left the stage she was drenched with sweat, visibly fatigued by her efforts. The audience obviously enjoyed the performance, as the usually reserved Eau Claire crowd loosened a little with clapping and howls of pleasure. For most of the audience. It was a chance to hear one of America's unique musical forms. For a few former Chicago residents, it was a chance to remember Chicago's lively blues scene. "It's like going home." said a concert goer. "Thank you for bringing a bit of ethnicity to Eau Claire," another told Taylor. "I love all types of music, but blues is my favorite," Taylor said after the show. "It's a part of me, my back ground. It represents what my lifestyle has been. Happy times, bad times. All together if you boil It down, it's the blues." Offstage. Taylor is not as fierce. She answers questions easily and thoughtfully. whispering as if to save her voice for the next night's performance. Taylor was born Cora Walton in Mem phis. 1938. She discovered the blues In her youth, listening to people such as Muddy Waters. Howlin' Wolf and Memphis Minnie. Her career started when she sang gospel In her church choir. At 18. Taylor moved to Chicago, where she began to perform as a blues singer. She was soon performing with Singet Koko Taykw brought the blues to Eau Cleire In February established stars such as Junior Wells and Elmore James. Taylor's break came in 1963 when she made two singles for a small blues label. "It was like a dream." Taylor said. "When I used to listen to all the old blues singers, people like Big Momma Thornton and Muddy Waters and all those people. I said I wanted to do some thing great like they was doing. I didn't know it would happen like It did." Taylor's greatest success came In 1965 when she joined Chess records. Chess teamed her with blues legend Willie Dixon, who produced several hits for Taylor, including his composition "Wang Dang Doodle." "Wang Dang Doodle" sold two million copies internationally and gained wide recognition Even the Eau Claire audience recognized the song. The song was popular enough in Europe to justify eight tours of the continent. Taylor said. "They (Europeans) seem like they know It. They don't speak English, but they make a lot of noise to It," she said. Taylor spent eight years with Chess records until owner Leonard Chess died and the company folded. For several years she didn't have a recording contract. but she continued to perform. Then she signed with Alligator Records, a small purist blues label that she credits with giving her new popularity. "Alligator has done quite a bit for me." she said. "I was on a millionaire's station with Chess and I found it doesn't matter how big or how rich a company is. It's what they do for you." Throughout her twenty-year career. Taylor has worked with the best musicians. A list of the people she has worked with reads like a Who's Who of blues: Muddy Waters. Willie Dixon. J.B. Lenoir. Buddy Guy. and many more. "I’ve worked with almost everybody you can name in the blues and some who aren't in the blues." Taylor said. "I just did a very big show in Ann Arbor. Mich., at this club called the Second Chance with Chuck Berry. It was quite an honor to be in a show with him." Her personal life is comfortable despite a busy performing and recording schedule, she said. "I've been doing it for many years, and I try to put a lot in it because I really feel what I’m doing," Taylor said. "I really love what I'm doing." Taylor said she enjoys playing in Eau Claire and other towns off the established blues circuit. "I just want to spread a little joy with my music, letting more people know about the blues and hear the blues." she said. "There's a lot of people not famll iar with the blues. I intend to let more people hear and know about it." 89Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra by Karen Boehme The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, with its resident conductor, James Paul, brought the sounds of one of the nation's finest orchestras to the Arena Nov. 4. Beginning with a familiar name. Schubert's "Rosamunde Overture." the orchestra moved Into the works of later com posers. Paul introduced Jean Sibelius's "Symphony No. 6 in D minor" as "different ... music (that) raises lots of questions but answers none of them." The orchestra played the moody, introspective piece with precision, allowing Sibelius's idea filled music to simply exist, without the traditional climaxes and separate movements. The second half of the program contained "St. Paul's Suite," by Gustav Holst, variations on themes taken from English folk music, and "The Great Russian Easter Overture." by Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakoff. The Rimsky Korsakoff piece resounded with the joy of Easter after a slow section of introspection and gloom. Paul led the orchestra through two encores for the near capacity audience. The Concord Siring Quartet Clockwise from left: first violin 1st Mark Sokol, cellist Norman Fischer; second violinist An drew Jennings, violist John Ko chanowskl Concord String Quartet by Karen Bochme Despite problems that caused the members of the concord String Quartet to Interrupt the music between movements for retuning, on Jan. 30 the quartet did what it has become famous for: playing Beethoven string quartets with the precision and intensity befitting Bee thoven's music. The Concord String Quartet, formed in 1971, demonstrates how well four men who have played In an ensemble for nine years can perform. Led by first violinist Mark Sokol, who used his eyes and body to direct while playing, the quartet's playing was polished and tight. Other members of the quartet are Andrew Jennings, second violin; John Kochanowski, viola; and Norman Fischer. cello. The ensemble played three quartets: two of Beethoven's earlier works. Opus 18. Quartets Nos. 2 and 3. published In 181, and another that is among the last pieces Beethoven composed. Quartet No. 13. The quartet played the last quartet as Beethoven had written it. with a long fugue section at the end. instead of the shorter finale that is usually played. Beethoven wrote the other finale when the fugue proved unpopular. The group's Interpretation learned toward the romantic, even in the first two quartets, which are soundly based in the classical tradition of Mozart and Ha dyn. The stretching of crescendoes and decrescendoes to their limits seemed more at home in the last quartet, in which Beethoven had already begun the move to Romanticism. Beethoven's music is challenging for both the performer and the listener; it is very subtle In one phrase and very straightforward in the next But it Is always provocative, even more than 150 years after Beethoven's death. The Concord String Quartet's polished performance seemed a kind of tribute to the music of this musical genius.C «henne Yochlmura receive Instruction at ah practice for her dance In Pa de DU . " Milwaukee Ballet by Lori Lau The Milwaukee Ballet Company came to town In February, and for a short time the audience could lose itself in a fantasy world as the dancers, clad In the spangly costumes of theater, leaped and balanced and spun to the orchestra music. There were three fantasies, the first of which was "Le Combat." a ballet which takes place In the days of the Crusades. In the opening scene. Clor-Inda, a pagan girl, meets Tancred. a Christian warrior. Time passes, and in their final meeting, they engage In mortal combat. Tancred wounds his assailant fatally, then discovers too late that she is the girl he loves. The mood was military; the dancers were warriorlike. The second ballet, "The Class," observed a ballet class during practice, and the dancers' struggle for perfection. The teacher demanded, cajoled and encouraged them as she flitted here and there to work with groups and individuals. The final ballet, the classical "Pas de Dix,” from the last act of the full-length ballet. "Raymonda." was a lavish, dazzling presentation of classical precision dancing to lush orchestra musk — the stuff of whkh young ballerinas' dreams are woven. In fact, the entire production was the stuff of which all dreams are woven. 92Folkfair brings exotic touch by Katie Myre with the Eau Claire community. People were invited to share the native food, drink, dance and customs of more than 20 countries represented by the booths scattered throughout the building Within minutes, one could stroll down a romantic French sidewalk (sponsored by UW Eau Claire French students), then clap and sing along to "Hambo." a Scandinavian dance Walter Reid, a OWEC faculty member who teaches international folk dances In the Eau Claire Folkdance Club, said he learned about folk dancing from friends at the University of Utah. The group also performed folk dances from Israel and Macedonia. Schofield Auditorium was also converted into an interna t Iona I stage for the day. Spanish dances. Japanese comedy and a Vietnamese stage for the day Spanish dances. Japa nese comedy and a Vietnamese candle dance were performed. Claire Maxwell, a Canadian foreign exchange student, said. "I think the Folkfair is a great opportunity for everyone to become aware of the many foreign students on campus. It also allows the students a chance to show off their country and their pride ” The committee sponsors the Folkfair annually In observance of United Nations Day. Imagine representatives of several major countries assembled under one roof to share each others’ lifestyles. Imagine this International gathering taking place In a small Midwestern city - Eau Claire. The International Festival Committee accomplished that when it sponsored the annual International Folkfair Oct 19 In Davies Center. Students from Ghana to France. Iran to Canada, and Scotland to West Africa tried to share a part of their livesEmmylou Harris by Jody Conner Seeing Emmylou Harris In concert is like sitting down with the girl next door. Although there were 3.000 fans gathered in the Arena Oct. 12. she seemed to reach out to each one individually. Rather than a recital, the concert became a conversation among friends. Part of Emmylou's appeal comes from sincerity. She Is not phony when singing about joys and heartaches; she sings from experience. She put many years into playing bars and honky-tonks before achieving success. In the late 1960s she was just another failing folk performer in New York. But she got a break performing on one of Gram Parson's albums, and record companies began to notice her. She recorded her first album in 1973 and has been expanding her audience since then Emmylou has a beautiful soprano voice, but is also quite capable of shouting out a fast paced rock 'n' roll song. From somewhere In her throat she can even pull out a half-growl for those honky-tonk booze songs In the course of her performance she played country, jazz, rock and swing. Emmylou's abilities were tested and proven by holding the diverse collection together without losing the audience. The real crowd pleasers were the upbeat tunes The audience stood, clapped and even stomped a little for songs like "Sister Coming Home." "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "Leaving Louisiana In the Broad Daylight." Complementing Emmylou was her superb backup group, the Hot Band.I f I I I Stephen Baird Almost a decade ago. there was a young man who attended Northeastern University in Boston. Mass He had the intention of becoming a chemical engineer. His studious manner led him to be awarded a job as a chemical engineer while seeking his degree. A few occurrences changed his peaceful college life, however. Vietnam War protests and police riots occurred regularly on his campus and in Boston, with beatings of students and citizens a common feature. The events disturbed the young man so much that he dropped out of college. He also gave up his goal of living an orthodox life in America. Today, that young man is known as Stephen Baird. "The Street-singer.” Baird displayed his musical talent at (JW Eau Claire on October 23-25, as he has done a dozen times before. Baird took up street singing after his short-lived college career. Initially, he escaped to Colorado to decide on the type of life he wanted, and an occupation to fit that lifestyle. He decided on a simple life: one where materialistic objects are not emphasized. To go along with his simple life. Baird chose an unconventional occupation — street-singing. The short, energetic. 100-pound Baird faced opposition to his street-singing career shortly after it began. Street-singing was illegal In Boston and many other CJ.S. cities. Baird obtained the first street singing license in Boston after auditioning for the city's police depart ment, with the provision that he would accept no money for his performances. He also had to vow that street-singing was his sole means of support. However. his license and vow did ized a letter-writing campaign for the legalization of street- singing in Boston. The campaign was a success. Today Baird Is attempt ing to legalize street performances nationwide through an association he organized — The Boston Streetsingers Guild. When the cocky singer Is not occupied with legalizing streetsinging, he is educating Midwesterners about the art. Baird visits major college campuses throughout the Midwest from September to December. What attracts Baird to this lifestyle? ”1 get to see the country and Intra duce people to street- singing." Baird said. "Many Midwesterners have never been exposed to it.” The Easterner's simple taste is an asset when traveling. He dislikes motels: he prefers to sleep at roadside camping grounds or In his car. He also accepts invitations to stay at friends' homes. The money Baird receives for his per formances in the form of salary and donations does not go to far. Baird said. "I pay for all my transportation, food and hotel expenses." Baird said. "There's not much left after you pay for the gas.” To Baird, money is a troublesome item one has to have, but not dwell upon. Baird says his low-cost lifestyle allows him to escape the trap of being dependent on living from paycheck to paycheck. Even though his lifestyle Is simple, his musical talent is quite the opposite. Baird displays remarkable repertoire of ragtime, minstral. blues and American folk songs for his audience. He also belts out an Irish drinking song every once in a while. Audience participation is common at Baird's shows. Most audience members are exhausted at the end of his shows from all the jumping, clapping and waving Baird encourages them to do. Accompanying Baird when he is performing are the seven instruments he plays. The dulcimer, harmonica, autoharp and an Appalachian instrument, called the lumberjack, are a few of the instruments Baird plays and owns. The energetic street-singer not only plays these instruments, he plays two to three of them at a time. Does the former college student chemical engineer miss the orthodox life he left a decade ago? “No. I don't think I will ever miss that part of my life," Baird shyly said. "I'm too preoccupied with street singing, peace and my simple ways." 98Spring Break Opposite page. lop left, for many iu dents, spring break is a lime lo lake the easy way up the hill. Top right.

Huy Kiy lational sociation F Student Social WorkersGamblers get chance to help kids by Jim Grzybowski You gotta know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away Know when to run ... The words of Kenny Rogers' hit, "The Gambler." may have been on the minds of many of the 350 student bettors at Alpha Kappa Lambda's Monte Carlo Night Dec. 5 In Davies Center. Gamblers, who paid 52.50. were given 5200 In play money to wager on various games such as blackjack, craps, roulette, wheels of fortune and chuck-a-luck. Blackjack and craps were the two most popular games, one blackjack dealer said. "After people would win a little at the blackjack tables, they'd go over there (craps table) and try to win real big," he said. About every half hour a loud roar would come from one of the crap tables and people would cheer frantically. Someone had just hit It big. Sophomore Joe Smlthers was one who hit it big at the craps table. "I couldn't believe it.” he said. "I bet 510,000 on U. They pay 15-1 (odds) and I got it." Just as there were winners, there were also those who did not fare as well. Dan Lester was one of the unlucky ones, but he took It pretty much in stride. "I lost half my money on one hand of blackjack — 55.000." he said as he chuckled. "Oh well, no big deal." Some of the gamblers were not really gamblers at heart. "If this were real money." Dave Wal pole siad, "I'd probably have a heart attack. I wouldn't even be here —maybe 100 miles away." About 35 prizes were auctioned off after the gambling was over and students could use the money they won to bid for them. AKL President James Young said. He said many people pooled their money so they could successfully bid for one prize. Young said the most popular prizes were alcohol. A 12-pack of beer sold for 51.4 million — more than any other prize, he said. There were other popular prizes. "There was a deck of porno cards that went over really big." Young said. Young said that proceeds went toward a Christmas party at the fraternity house for 25 needy Eau Claire children. Delta Zeta sorority helped with the par ty. he said. In addition. 5200 was donated to the National Kidney Foundation. Young said. Young said attendance was down from the 500 who came last year. He attributed that to a lack of publicity. Last year, he said, the event was held on a Saturday night. "We thought it would be up this year because it was on a Friday night." he said. "We just didn't have enough posters and stuff up." He said AKL is considering the possibility of having a Monte Carlo Night every semester, but said he is not sure how many people would come. Some gamblers would like to see it held more often. "It's beautiful." Dan Ludwig said. "I loved It" "It's really a lot of fun." John Burke said.

Lu Kaiaer await her tum to give Wood Mike Schmidt brace himself for the needle The 1980 Alpha Phi Omega blood drive In Early November set a record for a threeday collection In Eau Claire, blood drive chairman Warren Weber said. Weber said APO's goal this year had been 825 pints of blood, but the drive netted slightly less than 940 pints. He attributed the drive's success to increased publicity and a contest for dormitory residents that was sponsored by a local restaurant. APO representatives met with Red Cross blood drive chairmen from Eau Claire and St. Paul to set goals and pick a date. Weber said. APO. working with the Medical Technology Society and several nursing students, coordinated and publicized the event. Although APO's duties ranged from getting shuttle buses for the nurses to setting up equipment. Weber said the service fraternity's primary responsibility was recruiting dty nors. He said most of the 940 donors were students, though some faculty members participated. He said a fourth of the blood donated during the drive might be used by only the patient. "There is a pressing need for blood." Weber said, explaining APO's 17-year participation in the annual drive. "The blood donated from Eau Claire goes to a five-state area — Michigan. Wisconsin. Minnesota. South Dakota and Iowa."Student wins roast honors by Kevin Voit When Thanksgiving rolls around, most turkeys find that they've met their end as a stuffed, basted entree. One at (JW-Eau Claire was more fortunate. This marked the fourth year the Young Republicans have held the "Biggest Turkey On Campus" contest. As the name Implies, the contest is held to determine the biggest turkey related to the university — whether he or she be a student, fculty member, ad ministrator or employee of the university. Votes were cast at the cost of one cent per vote with no limit. When the poll closed after the three day election, Jim Brandes was head of the flock with more than 1.800 votes In appreciation for his year long efforts of obtaining the title, Brandes was awarded a twenty-pound turkey. Todd Bergmann. treasurer of the Young Republicans, said the contest raised nearly $100. The funds were used by the Young Republicans, with some of the proceeds being donated to the Salvation Army. Student Senate J«m Brand won the dubious honor of being eirted "The Biggest Turkey On Campus " 1311H Logos airs by L.J. Hanson Although many students may not be aware of the fact. (JW Eau Claire now has more than one newspaper vying for student readership. The older, more widely known student paper Is the Spectator. Its distribu tion is funded through students' segregated fees, and its goal is to provide objectives news coverage of the cam pus and the community. The newcomer. The Alternative. Is funded by donations to Logos Student Fellowship, a campus religious group of about 20 students. The paper, which is distributed nationally, is published in Lawrence. Kansas and has a circulation of 50.000. At CJWEC. 1.500 copies are distributed monthly in a rack near the Lobby Shop. Dave Blum, president of Logos, said the goal of the paper Is Implicit in Its name. He said it exists to present “an alternative viewpoint to secular human ism so that college students can make accurate decisions based on accurate information." Blum defined secular humanism as “the humanistic philosophy where man Is at the center and God Is not in or is not a part." He said college textbooks do not acknowledge the supernatural influence in history. "We think that's a disastrous mistake." Blum said. Although Logos is a non-denomlna-tional group, it is similar to evangelical groups. Blum said, in that. "We believe a Christian is someone who's made a personal commitment to Christ.” Also, the group's beliefs stem directly from the Bible. Blum said. Logos, in addition to sponsoring The Alternative, also sponsored public debates on the lawn outside of Davies in the fall of 1980. Speakers sponsored by Logos addressed such issues as abor tion and homosexuality and encouraged passers-by to stop, listen and discuss the issues. However, the goal of Logos and the paper is not "overtly political.” Blum said. Logos is not aligned with groups like the Moral Majority, he said. "We don't think there's a Christian party. We don't think God favors Republicans or Democrats." Blum said. Rather, he said, the group encourages people to "vote their conscience." Nonetheless, there are some issues. alternative views such as homosexuality, which are "clearcut Biblical Issues." Blum said, and the group firmly supports what It considers to be the Biblical stance in these areas. Blum said the group is hoping for an increased distribution of its newspaper. This is in keeping with one of the goals of the group, which, as stated in the directory of student organizations, is to "proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ on campus." Sieve Huh» . • Logo adviMf. Invite tludent patting by to ditcutt deathIf club can "can,” can't UWECP by Kevin Volt The large blue barrels scattered on lower campus may not mean much to you now. but someday you may recall them. In fact, you may remember them as the first sign that the world began ending its ■,toss-ewey” era. "Twenty years from now we might be digging up present landfills to retrive the aluminum we throw away now, ' said Mark Steinmetz, an active member of the Biology Club and a leader In the drive to recycle aluminum on lower campus. In September 1979, Lois Bergeson's desire to collect cans essentially began the recycling issue at (JW-Eau Claire. Since she wanted to collect them for personal profit, the university denied her the right to collect cans. Through her earth resources class she talked to Dan Schoonover and Steinmetz. The three decided that the project would be a good fund-raiser for the club. Meanwhile. Terry Rltterhaus was planning to collect the cans on his own and use a can-crushing machine that he had built. Steinmetz and Schoonover talked to Rltterhaus, and it was agreed that the club could have the can collecting project. As soon as the university approved the club's decision to recycle cans, the project got underway. Receptacles were placed on lower campus and recycle stickers were put on the soda machines. Every night a scavenger team goes through the library to claim any thrown-out cans. The CocaCola Bottling Company of Central Wisconsin said that it would purchase the cans from the club. Schoonover said. He estimated that at 30 cents a pound, $1,200 could be earned during the regular school year. Schoonover added that the $1,200 figure is unrealistic this year because of the costs of beginning the collection drive. Steinmetz is somewhat disappointed in the lukewarm reactions of the student body and Biology Club members, though. He said the problem is that both groups are unaware. "Hopefully students will become aware and deposit the cans in the recep- tacles. I hope lt s not apathy." Steinmetz said. He and Schoonover expressed concern about the future of the drive, because he will graduate In May and next year "the other kids will have to lake It over." The money raised by the recycling project will be returned to the university In some way. Schoonover said. "Once we get paid off. we'll be putting the money into trees or make a donation to the recreation department," he said. 133Societies recognize scholars _ by Cherle Phillips There are several reasons why a student would want to join an honorary society. First, there is the obvious advantage of being able to write it on your resume that you were a member of one. Whether your honorary society was interna tional. national or local doesn't really matter; the fact that you belong makes your resume shine a little brighter. Then there are the social advantages. You can meet people outside your dorm wing or apartment house or your Reid of study and take part in extracurricular activities to benefit the community, the university or the society Itself. But the underlying reason for even having honor societies is often overlooked. and it can be the most rewarding advantage of all. An honorary society honors students who have reached certain levels of achievement, explained senior Shelley Timms, president of Omlcron Delta Kappa. "It recognizes the success of students who are above average and excellent,” she said. "We shouldn't be so driven for success that we only recognize the straight-A student." Valena Burke, associate dean of students, agreed that all students who demonstrate outstanding leadership and achievement abilities should be recog nized and honored. "Just as our athletes are honored, so should good students be given that praise and recognition." Burke said. (JW-Eau Claire has 21 honorary societies. Each has the right to decide upon acceptance standards for its initiates. National societies have standards deter mined by the national organizations. Timms said, but local chapters may sometimes change their requirements for their own purposes and group esteem by raising them. Some students criticize the idea of honorary societies. Timms said, because there Is a carry-over of the rich and snobbish reputation the groups had in the 1950s. Television programs like "Happy Days" help this reputation survive. she said. Burke said that those who say honorary societies are elitist or a waste of time are not giving them a fair chance. "In a way. it's like a country club." she said. "It's something a person doesn't really need to belong to. It is for people who are interested in other people and who are more socially outgoing than the average person." USDancers boogie 32 hours to fight MD 'Marathon Madness' raises $11,128 by Lori Lau The smell of Ben-Gay hung in the Council Fire Room March 6 and 7, as dancers wearily rubbed It into aching muscles. Twenty-nine couples caught "Marathon Madness," and participated in the fifth annual Panhellenlc Council Dance Marathon for Muscular Dystrophy. Although there were 30 couples In last year's marathon, dancers this year raised 11.126, compared to last year's total of 8,629. All proceeds were donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. For 1. the less courageous could watch as dancers hopped, gyrated or simply swayed to music provided by area bands and disc jockeys. But most spectators did not stay the entire 32 hours, as the dancers had to do to collect on the pledges they and their sponsoring organizations had raised. Dancers, who were required to complete liability and medical forms before collecting donations, were treated to game, show er and snack breaks throughout the mara thon. with area businesses providing food and prizes. The couple who raised the most money and lasted the entire marathon received the first prize — a trip to Florida. Lori Ozzello and Mark Mauer, the couple who won first prize, raised more than 1,800 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Movie-goers empathize with Dustin Hoffman In "Kramer vs. Kramer." The audience is soothed by the strumming of a Cabin performer. Chances are the students In all of the above cases don't realize who is responsible for a good deal of the activities on campus — the University Activities Commission. The role of the UAC Is to bring activities to the campus that are of interest to the students. It is made up of 11 committes that cover most areas of entertainment. Interested in music? The UAC has a concert and a Cabin committee. The film and international film committees are responsible for the silverscreen entertainment in Davies Theater or Schofield Auditorium each weekend. For students with a bit of wanderlust, the UAC offers both the trips and tours and the travel committees. The more academically-minded might opt for the lecture and discussion committee; the cultured might like the performing and visual arts committee. And that still leaves the outdoor recreation, the special events and festivals and the ad hoc committees. Each committee, whichJames Solberg. a onetime Eau Claire resident, played guitar in the area before joining Short Stuff may have as many as 20 members, arranges programs kn Its area. Duane HamNeton advises the (JAC. He reviews the activities suggested by the committees and forwards them to various administrative heads. The (JAC is funded through the Finance Commission of the Student Senate. Each committee requests the revenue It feels it will need for the upcoming year. The requests are then totaled and a request is made under the broad category of (JAC . Carl Deutsch, (JAC concert committee chairman, said that concerts require more funding than any other activities simply because they are more expensive. Films are the most attended (JAC sponsored activities, he said. Club prescribes healthy attitude by Kevin Volt A healthy attitude was Just what the doctor ordered for the Wellness Club. The club filled the prescription by emphasizing stress reduction, good nutrition, physical fitness and mental well-being, and by keep ing an optimistic outlook on the club's future. During the 1979-80 school year, the Wellness Committee was formed on campus. Marie Brun. superintendent of University Health Services and the club's adviser, urged the committee's formation based on UW-Stevens Point's well-established program. Since then, the committee evolved Into a club and the number of members doubled from five to 10. The club's essential concern is lifestyle. It promotes the development of a healthy way of living. Martla Johnson, head of the club, said there were some difficulties In beginning the club. She said that because It Is a servlceoriented club, funds are limited and Its objectives need to be clearly identified. She also said membership, especially from the health profession students, Isn't up to Its potential. Despite Its difficulties, the club remained active. Members took part In the "Staying Alive and Well" week, played a major role In the campus "Great American Smokeout" activities, took part in the "Love Games With Leo" during "love doctor" Leo Buscaglla's visit and participated in other campus activities. 140Coalition works for education by Donna Wallace The Eau Claire Peace Coalition Is a student based service organization with outside participation from university personnel and the community. Chairperson Sofia Dorsano said. The coalition was formed as a reaction to draft registration in February 1980, she said, and during that school year, it dealt primarily with draft issues. But the organization is changing its focus. Dorsano. who was a founder of the coalition, said it now emphasizes selfeducation. It has also been opened to the community. The group holds various seminars and workshops with guest speakers. When it was studying the arms race and deterrence. Associate Professor Leonard Gambrell of the political science departments spoke, as did Professor Howard Lutz of the history department when the group discussed non-violent living in the day-today life.

Glen Meidl led the Blugolds to their first Wisconsin State University Con ference Northern Division title In 20 years The Blugolds tallied an 11-5 WSUC record that ended UW La Crosse's five year title reign. UWEC played a school record 36 games, which included a 14 game road trip to Tennessee The Blu golds played several National Colle giate Athletic Association Division II teams and came away with two wins and 12 losses. However. Meidl said the results were not indicative of the way the team played "We were never out of any game with the Division II teams." he said. Tennessee State and Vanderbilt are pe rennial powers and we did very well against them." Team unity made the Blugolds sue cessful. Meidl said He said the team worked very hard in practice and In the games, but the presence of some exceptional players helped the team also. John Hecht led the Blugolds with a .340 batting average, 33 hits, five home runs. 27 runs batted in and 14 stolen bases. "John was also an outstanding right fielder." Meidl said. That's another reason he was named the team's most valuable player as well as being named AlKonference and All District " A record setting performance by Blugold relief pitcher Dave Suchomel was instumental in the team's sue cess. Meidl said. Suchomel set a school record by pitching in 15 games He also tied school records for most wins (5) and saves (2) “Dave was one of the brightest spots in our season," Meidl said "He didn't start a single game but he was our most effective pitcher Meidl said the Blugolds won seven of 10 one-run games. "We showed that we could stand the pressure and come up with the win.” Meidl said. "This year we had the concentration needed to hold on to those slim leads."

Coach Robert Scott said "Last spring we had the toughest schedule we’ve ever had." he said. One school UWEC challenged, the University of Houston, was ranked among the top ten teams in the country Although UWEC was only able to win one of the four matches they played on their trip, the experience they gained was invaluable, Scott said. "It was important in terms of playing tough competition.” Scott said. “It got them (players) to learn from their mistakes by playing people better than they.' Using the experience from the trip, the Blugold nelters extended their Wisconsin State University Conference meet winning steak to 39 matches UWEC has not lost a WSUC match since 1974. In addition, the Blugolds won their fifth consecutive WSUC tournament, captured the District 14 title and tied for 2lst in the National Association of Inter collegiate Athletics tournament. Scott said his team is able to achieve its high level of play year after year for a couple of reasons. "Success breeds success." he said "Young players who want to continue their tennis careers want to play with a winner and tend to select UWEC." Scott also said he must recruit heavily. especially in Wisconsin and Minne sola. In winning the conference meet, the Blugolds compiled 58 points, compared to 44 for runnerup UWOshkosh. How ever. Scott said, the tournament was much closer than the points indicated "We won a lot of close matches." he said. Individual champions were Roger Hy man at No. I singles. Ken Cychosz at No 2 singles. Bill Sailer at No 4 singles. Mark Lenard at No. 5 singles and Dave Tornow at No 6 singles. The doubles teams of Hyman-Sailer and Lenard Hans Gallauer also captured first places. Gal laucr took third place at No. 3 singles. The NAIA tournament in Kansas City was a different story. UWEC finished tied for 21st of 50 teams Scott said he was not pleased with the results. "I was very optimistic about how we would finish." he said "With the quality of players we had. we should have finished in the top ten." Scott said he is not sure how well his 1981 team will do. Only two of the top six players are returning and one. Gallauer. is recuperating from a shoulder injury "It's really an unknown quality right now," he said.

"We had some quality people who did outstanding jobs." she said Two of those people were Dawn Laus lead, who placed second In the high jump at the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Track and Field Championships, and Kathy Peasley. who placed second in the pen tathlon in the same meet. The team finished sixth in that meet, after finishing llth in the WWIAC In door Meet Tricia Yeschek. a freshman from Lac du Flambeau, said she went out for track at (JWEC for two reasons to keep in shape and to meet people. Yeschek said she had been the top sprinter at her high school. But when she started running in college, she said, she was in for a big supnse "Track is mote serious here." she said "Here I couldn't compete with sprinters on my own team So I changed to distance running.' Competing was important, she said, but the encouragement from team mates turned friends was what made being a member of the team so special "Like at Superior - it was so cold everyone was taking care of each other, getting sweats, etc.," Yeschek said In situations like that, she said, a team tends to get close That meet at OW-Superior was one of the women s best as they took first, fin ishing ahead of UW Platteville by 35 points. The team had its best indoor meet with liWStout and Platteville. UWEC tallied 158 points; Sloot. 77 points; and Platteville. 71 points Seven indoor and 11 outdoor track records were set during the season. Yeschek said she definitely will be back next season "It's fun." she said "And she (Skrtv seth) just wants you to do your best. There’s not so much pressure " Skrivseth. who will become head coach in 1981, said she is looking for ward to more women trying out for the team This will make us more competl tive, she said. tvoCoach Beth Bonnet lead her turpnymg UlugokB ihtourjh a daily workout Banner year for young team by Kathy Hall When Beth Bonner came to (JW Eau Claire last fall as coach of the women's cross country team, she did not know where the team stood Only one worn en’s cross country team had ever com peted at the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Meet with a full team It did not take Bonner to find out that this year would be different. First, there was a roster of 19. Then the results started looking good, as the team and individuals continually Impo proved their times and places UWEC placed third in the WWIAC meet and followed it with another third place fin ish in the Division III Midwest WWIAC Regional Championship in Madison — a performance that qualified the team for the Association of Intercollegiate Athlct ics for Women's National Meet in Seat tie. where they placed 14th Bonner, who was the first American woman to run a marathon in under three hours, said the formula for (JWECs success was her encourage ment to the women to work on an indi vidual basis. •'They realized they were doing it for themselves — and not for me.” Bonner said. Bonner ran with the women during practice, alternating tough workouts with easy ones "The hard days were very hard." she said. "The easy days we just shared the joy of running ” The sharing of pain and joy brought the learn close. Bonner said, and throughout the season the women developed rituals and songs — such as "Sugar Smacks Presidents ." "They'd insist on Sugar Smacks for their away breakfasts because there were President quizzes inside the box." she said "After we'd do the quiz, we'd stick the stickers to the side of the van Despite the fun. Bonner said she was serious about running and competing. "I coached them to be winners." she said, "because I believe in running to win." One of the winners was Jenny Arne son, a sophomore from Madison, who ran consistently well all season. She placed 22nd in the conference meet. IOth in the regionals. and 27th In the natonals. She was the Blugolds’ top runner in almost every meet all year. Another winner was Amy Taylor, a sophomore from Brodhead. After plac ing seventh in the WWIAC meet last season, Taylor said she did not run all summer because she was unsure whether she was returning to school After a slow start, she improved enough throughout the year to place 16th in the conference meet, third in the regionals and 41st in the nationals. "Amy was an inspiration to the team." Bonner said of Taylor's dedica tion and determination Taylor said that under Bonner's coaching the women "proved that if you have goals, you can reach them — but it takes lots of work and patience " With only three upperclassmen on this year's roster, the team can look forward to working together. Bonner said. "They finally began to see they could win and not just be mediocre athletes." she said "Once they discover that winning attitude. I hope it motivates them so they'll never be satisfied with any thing else — either in running or life." l’ Hli ni»n (.low Country ream Franl Libby F.ngrWw.

The team fin ished with six victories in 42 matches The team played well in spurts. Jano said, but sometimes the players would get uptight and lose their concentration. “You can't afford to do that for very long because volleyball is a game of momentum," she said Still, the Blugolds seemed to put it all together in the confer ence meet at GWSupenor. Jano said GWEC battled perennial pow ers GW-La Crosse and GW Ste vens Point to virtual standstills be fore losing close matches “We played just super — probably our best all season," she said. Jano predicted the conference will remain very close competi lively for awhile. Freshman Carolyn Stout was named to the eight member All Conference team. “I was real pleased with her pro gress throughout the year," Jano said. “She started hitting very well at the end of the season Prospects for next year look good. Jano said, as the Blugolds lose only one player. Sue Becker, to graduation. Jano called Becker the best serve receiver and defensive player on the team Jano said she also hopes to recruit some taller, allaround players from Wisconsin and Minnesota. l.tnda Greer fMfhn high fo block an opponent % »pikr I960 Women Volleyball Team 4 Front Junior Varsity Jean Aine on.

Sophomore Dan Stack, who claimed All American honors by finishing 22nd in the nationals, said the team's success hinged largely on continual improve' ment throughout the season "In the beginning of the season.” he said, "we were getting beat by (JW-La Crosse by 20 to 30 points and later we beat them at our own invitational and came close to them at the nationals.” Coach Keith Daniels Indicated that the Blugolds' greatest triumph was bumping LaCrosse from the top spot in the Wisconsin State University Conference. a position it had held for nine straight years. The race was nearly as close as it could get. with the Blugolds edging the Indians. 3032 ' We knew it would be a battle.' Dan lels said. "It's quite special after trying for so long." It took awhile for it all to sink in. but the kids had a pretty good party back in Eau Claire ”Nancy Jansen shows the detefmmatKJn that helped bfing her the No. 2 »mgte» championship Super season for women netters by Jim Grzybowski Tremendous depth, team unity, and poise were all responsible for a nearly perfect season for the UW Eau Claire women's tennis team The Blugolds won 15 of 16 dual meets, losing only to the University of Illinois, a Big Ten Conference school They also won the Whitewater Invita tional and the Wisconsin Women's Inter collegiate Athletic Conference Meet, which ended UW LaCrosse's eight year reign as conference champion Winning the WWIAC meet qualified the Blugolds for the Association of Inter collegiate Athletics for Women Midwest Regional in May 1981 In the conference meet, the Blugolds had finalists in eight of the nine flights, and won five championships, four in sin qles play Singles winners were Nancy Jansen, at No ? singles. Joan Pederson, at No. 3 singles. Lori Olsen at No 4 singles; and Patty Stengel at No 5 singles Connie Millot and lanet Petroski teamed to win •hr Nc T double , championship Second place finishers for UWEC were Patty Van Ess at No. I singles and Linda Benson at No. 6 singles. Van Ess and Jansen captured the runner up spot at No I doubles. Coach Marilyn Skrivseth said the squad's balance may have helped the players become stronger because every one was constantly challenged during the daily workouts. The team was also very close knit, she said, despite three freshmen. Van Ess. Jansen and Pederson, occupying the top three singles spots, a condition that could have led to resentment among the upperclassmen Skrivseth said the team developed its closeness while winning the lOteam Whitewater Invitational "We took a giant step forward, not only in our playing, but also in terms of team unity." she said after the tourna ment For the rest of the season, she said, "everybody was behind everybody else all the time." Millot echoed Skrivseth's statements “The conference championship is one that we as a team worked very hard to achieve," she said. "It wasn't only talent that took us to the title but a special closeness that each individual had to ward other members of the team. That closeness helped to carry us through." The Blugolds demonstrated their poise In several key meets. Skrivseth said "I was really proud of the way the team hung in there." she said after UWEC beat La Crosse in a dual meet "In every match we were down at one time or another, but we were able, in most cases, to fight back for the win " UWEC also defeated Marquette Uni versity. a Division II scholarship school. 63. for the first time in four years "I thought we played very poised ten ms." she said "We never gave up and came back to win several matches " Skrivseth said the team would contin ue to practice indoors through the win ter and would play some spring meets to prepare for the AIAW meet The top two finishers there advance to the na tional tournament rttly Stengel pieporet to hil a forehand return I960 Women Tenro Team Front Janet Petroakl.

Coach Manlyn ShnvtethStrong offense not enough Team struggles to 3-8 record The CJWEau Claire football team went through a series of peaks and val leys this year. Unfortunately for It, the valleys were more common than the peaks The Blugolds. despite leading the Wisconsin State University Conference In total offense, finished in a seventh place tie with UW-Stevens Point The team concluded with a 2£ WSUC record. 38 overall. Head Coach Link Walker pointed to untimely mistakes that hurt the Blu golds throughout the year After losing three games they could have won. Walker said, "it's as exasperating as can be. but that’s nobody’s fault but ours." The Blugolds played the four schools that finished as quad champions in the WSUC well. They defeated UW Whitewater. 34 20. in perhaps their best effort of the season In their conference opener aqainst UW River Falls. UWEC led. 14-6. in the final minutes but eventually lost, 17-14. in overtime. A 39 yard field goal attempt on the last play of the game against UW-La Crosse bounced off the crossbar and La Crosse claimed a 23:21 victory In the conference finale. UWEC lost to UW Platteville. 52-43, in a game it once led. 330. Still. Walker refused to make excuses for his team’s poor record "A good football team makes its own breaks." he told a Spectator reporter "We hurt ourselves with fumbles and penalties And we had a lot of young kids starting on defense, and that can hurt you too." The Blugold defense ranked eighth in the conference. Cornerback Eddie Vann agreed with Walker. "Basically, the defense couldn't rise to the occasion." he said "We gave up the big play and that killed us." "But we never quit We tried like hell We faced some offenses with a lot of juniors and seniors. They have the ex perience. "Our young guys learned a lot by playing against them, and it will make them better ball players in the future." Running back Roger Vann, who broke numerous UWEC rushing records, gave much of the credit to the offensive line "Our offensive line was great." he said, "and they don’t get much credit They made it all happen "We made some mistakes, but when we put it all together — look out "We’ve been in every game this year except two. Our record could have been the opposite. It’s really frustrating be cause I know we were a better team than our record indicated "I ••»» Mil.'

Dave Matpjirr Golf team places 4th Some people might consider a fourth place conference finish good, but for UW Eau Claire golf coach Frank Wngg lesworth and the 1980 golf team, it was somewhat of a disappointment. The Blugofd golfers won the Wiscon sin State University Conference title In 1976 and 1979. They placed second In 1977 and 1978 "Golf is a Tickle game and completely unpredictable.” Wrigglesworth said "It was as frustrating a season for the play ers as it was for me But we will be playing spring golf and have a few more people eligible for next year " Still. UWEC compiled a fine 42 19 season mark and finished in the top half of every meet in which they participat ed. The highlight of the season was com peting in the National Association of In tercollegiate Athletics tournament In Michigan. Wrigglesworth said UWEC tied for 20th out of 34 teams The Blu golds qualified for the NAIA tournament by winning the District 14 champion ship in 1979. WSUC medalist Jeff Kuehl finished in 32nd place with a four day total of 302 His second round 68 was one of the low scores of the tournament 1S9Runners dash to Nationals Kansas trip meant more than a race to men runners by Jim Grzybowski When the UW-Eau Claire men's cross country team traveled to Kansas In November to compete in the National Association of Intercolliegiate Ath letlcs national meet, it found more than a yellowback rood and the Lond of Ot. It found its first All American in Dan Stack, who placed 22nd. If found Its best finish ever, eighth of 26 teams, in the national meet. And perhaps, above all. the team found a good time. The team drove to Selina, where the meet was held, in a van and things got pretty boring at times. Garth Mohr said. After spending one night In Ames. Iowa, the team drove to Saline and passed the time Friday night play ing football. Team members also found one other thing to help pass the time. "We partied a lot Mohr said Right after the meet. Stack said, the team left Saline so there was no time for sightseeing. They spent the night In Omaha. Trip to Seattle provides women with chance to compete nationally, sightsee by Barb Marshall For most people. Seattle probably means little more than a city on the other side of the country, but in November It was more than that for the UW-Eau Claire women's cross country team. It was the site of the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women national tournament. Involving about 800 runners. Although UWEC qualified for the competition, the school only paid for two runners to attend — Jenny Arne son and Amy Taylor. Both had qualified individually by placing among the top 15 In the regional meet. The trip cost the other women about 300 apiece. Coach Beth Bonner said. Upon their return, team members worked on fund-raisers to help pay for the trip, such as selling candy bars and sponsoring a run-a-thon. To save money, the team stayed at Seattle Pacific University. Bonners alma mater, with that school's team Neb., and "celebrated the end of the torture — the end of the season." Mohr said. "Everybody was kind of tight before the meet. You were so nervous and then It ended. The night In Omaha was the highlight of the trip." Stack said one Interesting aspect of the trip was when he and a rodeo rider jokingly discussed holding a ‘"biathlon" — a competition in bull riding and cross country running. Mohr and Stack said the trip was especially nice because the school paid for everything. "Every MacDonald s hamburger we ate was paid for by the school. " Stack said. The two gave much credit for the team's success this year to Assistant Coach John Vodacek. They said he gave the team direction In Its running and was just what they needed to climb horn second to first in the conference Kathy Money said the team mem bers appreciated the warm welcome they received in Seattle. When they got off the plane, she said, they were welcomed by a woman who gave them Washington apples. Every team was also given a reception and a dinner in its honor. The team spent two extra days sightseeing In the city. Ameson said, and visited the World Space Center and the Space Needle, one-time site for the World s Fair. The effects of May's Mount St. Helens volcanic activity was evident. Ar-neson said "Everyone was selling posters and photographs of the volcano." she said “A one-ounce container of ash was selling for a dollar. It was a big busi ness.' Money said she and some of the others bought the ash after running around the city looking for it. Libby Engeleiter said that the familiar Seattle rain was a problem because It rained every da . except the day of the meet "The course was really a mudslide," Arneson said. Maney said she was glad she went because "it was neat to be in a race of that caliber and to see people from all over the country. "The trip was good for our team because It gave us confidence. We knew we were a good team to have made It this far and we will be willing to work hard for this again next year.' isoUWEC Freshman pilots Regis team by Cathy Acherman It's bingo night every Thursday at Eau Claire Regis High School- About an hour and a half before it begins, the tables and chairs are set up by the soph omore basketball team. To Christopher Olley and the team it‘s a price they have to pay. Olley, an 18-year-old freshman at CJW-Eau Claire, is also the sophomore head basketball coach at Regis. Olley said that when he came to (JWEC he talked to Dale Race, assistant basketball coach at (JWEC. "I was interested in coaching grade school or helping at a high school." Olley said. "I figured no one would hire a kid.” Race told him to call Bill (Jlmond. head basketball coach at Regis. (Jlmond offered Olley the job and he took it. Olley's team struggled to a 2-7 record but he pointed out that only one of the losses was against a sophomore team: the rest were against junior varsity teams. The last game of the season ended on a bit of a sour note as the players on the bench got called for a technical foul. Olley spent 30 seconds yelling at the team. "They deserved to get yelled at and I'd do It again." he said. "There is no reason a player should get a technical foul. The players have to learn some thing more than basketball, like being nice." He said coaching was a good experience for him because he learned how to handle people. He said some people are crybabies while others are hams. "You just have to learn how to handle people differently," he said. "If I was older." Olley said, "the team might respect me more, but at the beginning of the year I just tried to be their friend." Olley said he and his players always had trouble getting court time to practice because other things were considered more important. Since the team played so late on Thursdays, he said, it ended up setting up tables and chairs for bingo. "Bingo is the school's subsidy," Olley said. "We have to set up tables even if we don't like It." Coaching took its toll on Olley. He said that spending so much time with basketball helped lower his grodepoint somewhat. "I didn't sleep much," he said "I'd just think about what to do at the next practice or game. I was always thinking basketball. "As a coach, playing time doesn't stop at the buzzer."

Olley discusses strategy with his players during a timeout.I Team marches to another title by Jim Grzybowski It's beginning to sound like a broken record, but the song is an old time favor ite. one you want to hear over and over again It took a little longer for the UW Eau Claire men's basketball team to get rolling this year But once it did. it methodically marched to another Wisconsin State University Conference title, its IOth in the last 12 years. The Blugolds put themselves in what Coach Ken Anderson called a hole early in the season. After three conference games, the talented squad had a not so impressive 1-2 mark It lost to UW Whitewater. 67 58. and UW Stevens Point. 59 51. on successive nights in mid December. An derson said it was the worst start for a UWEC team in his 13 years here However, the Blugolds regrouped and gained some much needed confidence before resuming WSUC play First, sen ior guard Jim Behnke. who sat out the first nine games after being suspended by the WSUC for playing in a post sea son basketball tournament, returned to the starting line-up. Then, they beat three good teams — Northern Michigan.

The athletic department? Now that's a bit of a copout. You would contact Tim Petermann. (JWECs sports Infor motion director. Who? The What? Sports information directors (or SID as they call themselves) are responsible for the publicity ond promotion of their school's atheltic program. The job Includes providing programs, media guides and recruiting booklets, keeping records, taking statistics, contracting media and writing press releases. Petermann said SID's are coordinators. consultants and historians — ond a vital part of a university's athletic program He said his job is Important, exciting and action-packed but it can also be tedious, frustrating and extremely time-consuming. SIDs are warned in their job descriptions that the position requires nearly 55 hours of work a week. “Most SIDs definitely earn their pay,' he said. Petermann bega his career as an SID at UWEC more than 10 years ago while he was a student there . He had been Involved with sports and newspaper work while in high school In Appleton. When he started college, he said, he was determined to concentrate on school and not get involved in any outside activities. obscure but essentia! That plan didn't last too long “When Dr. Rice (Jim Rice, former (JWEC athletic director) asked me to take football stats. I said yes. of course.'" he said. Football statistics led to basketball statistics and in the spring, to baseball statistics. His junior and senior years were filled with 40 hours of work a week writing press release5. making pro grams and brochures and still keeping statistics. When he graduated in 1971 with a journalism degree, he was offered the position of full-time sports information director At the time he was third SID In the Wisconsin State University Confer ence. Now, all but one conference school has a full-time or student SID. Petermann also serves as an assistant to Steve Kurth, men's athletic director In this position he works with distributing tickets, determing the eligibility of athletes, making travel arrangements, setting up physical examinations for athletes and working with the alumni lettermen's club Educational background differs from SID to SID. he said. Most have a journal ism or communications background, but often, physical education, administration and English graduates are found in SID's offices However, he said, the only real requirements Include an avid interest in all sports, a tendency to be a “workaholic" and a sharp mind. Perseverance is an Important attri butc of a good SID. Petermann said "You're working with the coaches, the media — all have different ideas of what should be promoted and how it should be done." he said “There are always results to be called in. deadlines to meet — It's a job that's never completed "Once you find an efficient system, there's something new that can be han died and most SIDs will take it on.” SIDs need to have good rapport with the local media One device Petermann developed this year to aid media is the "Blugold Sports line," a telephone answering service that allows coaches and managers to call In results from out of town events when he is not In his office. He then compiles the results and other news on UWEC athletics in a daily recording available to media Someday, he said, he hopes to develop a "Blugold Hotline" for fans to call in anytime for results and for him to re- -cord news from any phone 1 An SID's relationship with other SID's is Just as important. If not more so. than his relationship with the media In order to write releases, publish programs and brochures, cooperation in receiving information from other school is vital, he said Even between fiercely competitive rivals. SID's work together for the effi ckency that is needed for a successful atletk program, he said. The SID? He's the one whose office light bums late into Saturday night and he's back on Monday before the secre- I taries arrive. During the day he's in a hurry, doing two things at once. But he's always willing to take a minute to tell you anything you want to know I about UWEC's athletic program.These two manage their job well by Doug Kroll To see a woman doing a job that is normally filled by a man is no longer a rare occurrence. But In the case of Sue Pierce and Kathy Hall, some people may still take a second look. Pierce and Hall are managers of the men's wrestling team at ClW-Eau Claire. They can be seen with the team almost every day of the week — when It meets for practice, competes, celebrates a victory or shares a defeat. To hear them speak of the team tells one that they probably have at least as much enthusiasm toward It as many of the team members. And In Pierce's own words. "It's been the most Important thing to me in my four years here." Pierce, a senior has been with the team for four year . Hall, a junior, also began working with the team when she was a freshman. Although they are best friends now. there was some resentment between the two when each found that the other was working with the team "All the guy asked her stuff and I felt stupid." Hall said of her first days with the team. "How we do everything together when working for the team." The two gained their love for wres- tling in high school. Pierce said it started when her older brother was on the team. "My brother started a long time ago." she said. "He’d come home from school after learning a new move and I d be his gunny sack for practice.” They said they later became cheer leaders "just to go to the matches " Pierce said she and Hall have been treated well as managers and aside from Initial misconceptions, have had no problems from anyone. "I haven't really heard anything (about our being managers) from other girls," Pierce said. "Sometimes when males hear we're managers for the wrestling team, they say. Oh. girl's wres tling.'" Hall said wrestling coach Don Parker helped them fit In with the team. "He just treats us like the guys," she said, "which is great It makes us feel like a part of the team " The women are even included with the team when It comes to discipline at practices. Pierce said wrestlers are fined 10 cents every time they swear, but they are fined 25 cents They take it light heartedly, saying the money goes toward a party at the end of the year. Their responsibilities include helping at practice, taking notes for Parker, scorekeeping, doing clerical work and recruiting. Pierce and Hall say they will always love the sport, even when their team is not winning. "It was pretty frustrating the first couple of years when we weren't winning." Pierce said. "But winning this year has made it just great." She said some people don't under stand how tough wrestling Is. "Of all the teams here at school, they may practice the hardest," she said. "People come down here to watch and can't believe they take the beating they do." The 198081 season is the last for Pierce as manager. She said she will miss the team a lot. Hall will have another year with the team. "It just won't be the same without Sue." she said. Still, the two will continue their enthusiasm for wrestling and always cherish their years with the (JWEC wrestling team.Improvement shows in young team’s play by Jim Grzybowski Patti Putt dutMrs upcourl at the Blugolilt attempt to taut tweak Although a record of 514 does not constitute a successful season. Coach Sandy Schumacher saw some bright spots in the Blugolds' play, The squad was composed mostly of freshmen and sophomores, she said. She said inexperience caused the team to lose some games it might have won. She said, however, that she was pleased with the overall Improvement of the young players throughout the season Schumacher said (JWEC lost some games because of their inability to make their free throws consistently "We could have had an easy 500 season," she said.

Coach Sandy SchumacherWrestlers post winning record by Kathy Hall For the past few years, wrestling has not been a sport to get excited about at UW-Eau Claire. But things are changing. The Blugolds had finished eighth or ninth in the Wisconsin State University Conference In 12 of the last 14 years. This year, the team finished seventh, only one half point away from sixth and five points away from fifth UWEC also had the school's first win ning dual record in seven years and for the first time in 13 years, had a winning record against conference opponents. Under the guidance of Coach Don Parker, a two-time national champion, the program has grown. Ouring his first year coaching five wrestlers represent ed UWEC in the conference meet This year. 21 competed in the Blugold Invita tional. and keen competition at prac tices kept various wrestlers fighting for positions. One of the most interesting rivalries in the practice room was between sophomore Tony Algiers and junior Ron McPhail The two wrestled off for the 142-pound position and were so equally matched that one would win one time, the other the next. But when McPhail gained the upper hand. Algiers, last year's fourth ploce finisher in the WSUC at 142 pounds, was left out. Algiers sat out a week, missing two duals and a tournament That week made a difference to the trl-captain. "I thought about quitting wrestling." he said "I felt I was letting the team down because I wasn't contributing to the team effort ” However, one week later, he won the 134 pound championship at the Blugold Invitational, upsetting a top conference opponent Soon, he was crowned conference champion, beating the defend ing champ, and becoming the fifth conference title winner in UWEC history. Three weeks later. Algiers and three teammates competed in the national tournament at Central State University in Edmond. Okla. Algiers came home an All American by placing eighth. The other two tri-captains. Terry Stoll and Randy Belonga. also played major roles in the team's success. Stoll, a senior, started out the lineup at the I IBpound division "Having a wrestler like Terry who could get out there and win the first match in a dual really fired the team up." Parker said. Stoll finished the season with a 23-10-I record, winning the Whitewater Open and placing third at Upper Iowa and in the conference meet. Belonga. a junior, missed the WSUC meet due to an injury, but placed high in four tournaments — first at St. Cloud, seconds at Whitewater and Northland, and third at Upper Iowa.

The team splashed through the Wisconsin State University Conference and easily won the conference meet From there, it sent a contingent of athletes to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Meet in Liberty. Mo "We went to the meet (NAIA) expecting the team to finish in the top 10 but the fourth-place finish was more than expected." Coach Tom Prior said "They really pulled themselves together for the competition." UWEC took fourth by breaking a tie with Bemldji State in the last event of the competi tion. Prior said the team's success was competi tion. He said that most scoring comes from freestyle events and strength In this area was stressed in training. "Outstanding relay swimmers like Mark Green gave us the strength needed in this area." Prior said Green finished second in the 20Ometer individual medley at the nationals with a school record of 2:11.57. Green also finished sixth in the 1.500 freestyle and the 400-meter Individual medley. The swimmers did not monopolize team success, however Divers such as Jeff Weber. Steve Ellingson. Jim Brennan and Doug Brown were consistent contributors to UWEC victories. Prior said. Weber won the national championship in the threemeter diving event In fact, it was the diving squad that provided the tying points to move the team into its fourth place tie with Bemidji State In the next and last event, the 400meter medley relay, the Blu golds earned two points by finishing sixth in what diving coach Bob Clotworthy called "the classic cardiac case" to put UWEC in fourth place by Itself. Prior said the many quality athletes on the team gave the squad tremendous depth throughout the season. "We qualified 24 or 25 individuals for the national meet," Prior said. Team depth defi nitely was a strong point of our season." The conference championship and the fourth place finish in the national meet were the high points for the team, Prior said. He said the last minute excitement of the win over Bemidji State was a proper end to an exciting year. ••'■‘Ml ms I Claire t Sv imniryj Dkvtfvj Team I nmi i.j« .eated Ann Wandi.tr It John Et-xlto Steve Turnt-w Steve Petrmfello MjiK «••• At Opvthl M »,•• WHtivi H un- Bennett I ii liaMe Sei md row kneeling Joel t-ut.

However, it did equal last year’s showing as they won the WWIAC championship for the third year in a row. But the noticeable improvement was in the team's performance at the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women national championship in Cedar Rapids. Iowa Three years ago. the squad did not even attend the national meet Last year the Blugolds placed eighth In the meet and this year it finished fourth. The strong showing at nationals was not a fluke; the season record provided evidence of a consistent team "We were a strong team from the start." Coach Tom Prior said. "We won the first meet at Green Bay and steadily improved through the year until we won the conference meet." Prior said the team was strong in all areas. He said the overall improvement in the freestyle events gave the team Its strong base for the year The Blugolds lost only two meets this year. One loss was to Northwestern, a Big 10 school The other loss was to eventual AIAW national champion Ham line. They did. however,.avenge that loss by beating Hamline in the St Cloud Relays.

For a team to score. It must either run the ball over the opponent s goal, which is called a try. or drop kick the ball over the goal posts A team can also score on penalty kicks The game is rough but controlled. "There aren't as many penalties In rugby.' Zappa said. "There is only one referee and he can’t see everything, so the number of penalties are limited.” The teams start the game in a scrum, facing each other and pushing for position. When the ball Is put into play, the mass melts into bodies and kicking feet The mass splits when a player picks up the ball and runs toward an enemy goal. Plleups are common and physical. The players wear no helmets or pads to cushion tackles or kicks to the legs However. Zappa said, the players on both teams regulate the game. He said there are few cheap shots because other players cool hot tempers. The club is not an official university team But for its second season, the team will be playing under a charter recognized by the Wisconsin Rugby Union "The union sets up our schedule." Zap pa said. 'We play some of the teams we played last year, but we're playing some big teams like Marquette and Madison." The game is over. Both teams, winner and loser, crowd together on the grassy field to shake hands and praise each other — it's just good sportsmanship. But now. Instead of running for the showers, both teams pile Into cars, trucks and vans A convoy Is formed that heads for a bar on Water Street chosen by the home team. At the bar. competition is as intense as on the play ing field Beer is consumed athletically and songs bounce back and forth as much as the ball on the field. These are not the usual football or baseball teams having a Sunday scrimmage These players are participating in a more traditional sport — rugby. Rugby football, the English sport that spawned American football, broke into the sports scene this year at Eau Claire. Greg Vancil. a music Instructor at UWEau Claire, organised a citywide team made up mostly of university students The new team did well despite its inexperience and won seven of its 10 games Bob Zappa, secretary and player for the Eau Claire Rugby Club, was one of the people who tried rugby without knowing anything about the game "It |ust sounded like fun. " Zappa said. "Sometimes I still don't know what's going on though " The ball used In rugby is a swollen version of a football Player positions Rugby i played y« » round. m temperature that would discourage most other sports buffs The sport is organized and player Interest is growing, but as a spectator sport, this game is relatively unknown. "Most of the spectators at our games are friends or relatives." Zappa "And some of those people don't know what’s going on." He said the team provides printed rules ond Instructions for spectators at every game to help explain what might look like chaos on the field. He also said the club needs a publicity campaign to explain the game and broaden the ap peal of rugby No money comes with the team’s charter Zappa said the university could provide money If the team joined the school sports system, but he said, "the more we get from them, the more they dictate to us." Zappa said the team raises money by raffles, bake sales and club dues, which are $20 per member. However, the money raised is always enough to finance the most traditional part of this traditional game. "We always have a big party after the game," Zappa said. "We rent a room, drink beer and try to outslng each other. I guess it started as a tradition in England. The home team always throws the party," iTop I cmi Komoto 2nd Row Sandi Wilton.

Peterson said the fans' favorite mounts and stunts are also the squad's favorites “Whatever pleases the crowd the most pleases us the most." he said. Wilson said that because most mounts are dangerous, squad members must possess one basic quality “You just have to be daring." she said. The squad, which is selected after tryouts in September, performs at all basketball and football games, both home and away. Although more than 30 people usually try out. the women candidates always far outnumber the men “The toughest part is getting guys." Peterson said "There's a certain stigma attached to being a male cheerleader — even in college." The squad is not university funded, Wilson said, and it gets 75 percent of its funds by conducting an annual high school cheerleading clinic. Besides performing at the games. Peterson said, the squad practiced six hours a week. They both agree that being a squad member is well worth the time invested Peterson said the basketball players appreciate it when the squad gets the fans fired up After road games, he said, some players have thanked the squad for being there Wilson said there is another good aspect about being a cheerleader. “You have people coming up and saying hi to you," she said.

Since the squad is not university funded. Captain Lyn Hammes said, money was earned through various fund raising activities to purchase new uniforms. Hammes said squads from 30 high schools participated in UWEC's annual high school pompon clinic. At the clink, which is the squad's main fund raiser, the high school squads learned two routines and participated in a performance competition, she said “The girls swap ideas, learn routines and have fun." Hammes said of the clink "They are very enthusiastic about the competition." Hammes said she and co-captain Debbie Gaard planned the football halftime routines while the squad broke up into groups of two or three and planned routines for the basketball season Thirty two Boyd Grade School girls, taught by squad mem ber Kathy Hanson, performed a routine to "Jingle Bell Rock" at the Dec 20 halftime show. Hanson said she worked with the fourth, fifth and sixth graders during most of the first semester. "To raise money for uniforms, the girls sold popcorn — $500 worth." Hanson said Besides doing halftime shows, the squad members were timers for the swimming teams and bat girls for the baseball team.

William Harms, director of recreation, said the recreation program at UWEC has grown to be immensely popular. Twelve intramural sports were offered at UWEC this year Harms said basketball, softball and volleyball were by far the most popular team sports, both among men and women Harms said broomball was introduced this year Broomball is similar to ice hockey but the participants don't wear skates and they use brooms instead of hockey sticks to try to hit a ball into the opponent's goal Doug Kroll was one who tried the new sport It's a lot of fun," he said. "People are falling all over the place You can hardly get to the ball " Harms said that, because of broom ball's popularity, he hopes to start an i intramural ice hockey league next year Some special events were also set up this year. Harms said. One such event was the Century Club When students accumulated 100 points by running, bicycling or walking 100 miles, they re celved a certificate and a UWEC Cen tury Club T-shirt. An agreement with the Eau Claire YMCA was also reached in which two racquetball tournaments, a women's and a men's, were played there this year Harms also said an exercise show, which was aired in the dorms at 10 pm. was very popular, especially among women Several women from different wings would get together and exercise at once, he said I'M'Atiovr Irit corrc »oJW-yt alI i» vrry popular with UWEC rlujmlt Abowr.

No matter how many Mmes you do It, the last time Is as painful as the first. For students like me, who desire a yearly change of environment. It means a lot of pain. One problem is that most buildings are not designed to be moved Into. Doors are too narrow to fit anything wider than your shoulders, let alone a couch or easy chair. The problem is compounded If you have to go through hallways or up stairs. It seems as If I’m always trying to fit a six-foot couch through a four-foot bend in a hall. Of course, you have to go through the same procedure to take it out again at the end of your stay. Sometimes I wonder If it wouldn’t be easier to buy new furniture and leave the old stuff behind. Any talk of moving furniture Is academic If you can’t find something to move It with. Your car may be nice, but it probably doesn't carry much. Somewhere you must beg. borrow or steal a truck or van. Usually you know a friend who has one and is willing to let you use it. That is. your friend is willing until the day of the move, when something always comes up. But a seasoned mover can always find a vehicle, even If he must explain to the boss why he was gone six hours, driving the company van across town. It is amazing the amount of junk you discover when you move — useless Decorating l» one way to make the new place more like home things that you promised yourself to toss out long ago. but never quite had the nerve. Things like 200 back issues of "Roiling Stone." a dozen empty wine bottles or broken flower pots — things I've moved four different times. What is really interesting Is the effect of mixing my newly moved Junk with that of a newly moved roommates. Imagine a living room decorated with "National Lampoon" posters. Picasso prints and Miss January. The house could be considered a student theme park with each room representing a dif- ferent habitat, l.e. "Organic Land," "Alcohol Land," etc. Despite the hassles, moving is worth it In the end. When you reach for a beer and discover you forgot it or turn on the TV and remember the cable has yet to be hooked up. you know you have achieved that change In environment you wanted so badly. With any luck at all. the new place will be like the old In no time. 190Inhabitant of this Tower lounge have rearranged It to ult their taste. Dorm deco: Residents dislike rules by Kevin Volt There ere several situations in life that rules seem to make less pleasant. Seat belts, for example, lessen the chance of serious injury In accidents. Despite this fact, many people find them confining and don't use them. This year's rules on dorm renovations Is in the same category for some students. "They (the rooms) aren't what they used to be." one student said. "It used to be that everyone on the floor hod a neat room. Now there aren't any." The rules that put a halt to drastic interior decorations were announced f last summer. Bunks must be made of four-by-fours. No barnboards or paneling will be allowed. Structures built for the room must be used for shelving. Partitions are prohibited. No flammable material may be hung from the celling. Douglas Hallatt, director of housing. said the central housing department, with the assistance of the Eau Claire fire department, created the rules for the safety of the students. "Students may not think this is important. but this year we've seen the catastrophic implications of housing." Hallatt said, referring to a rash of fires including the MGM Grand and Hilton Hotel fires In Las Vegas. "We took a look at it (the siutation in Eau Claire) and asked. Does one student have the right to present a fire hazard to others?"' Hallatt said. "We have to be futuristic, and I think Eau Claire will be a model for universities in the future." Hallatt said installing smoke alarms, which the housing department is considering. would be a continuation of this safety philosophy. Meanwhile, some of the rooms have been toned down in their decor. But a few of the men went on building despite the rules. One student said, "This is a bar. but it's not a bar. It's a shelf. I keep things on it so if they question me about It. I can say It's a shelf." Another added. "I guess that (a patiolike structure) Is Illegal, but if I call it a shelf, it's okay. Really, there are ways of getting what you want and getting around the rules." Other students seem to understand the reasoning behind the rules. “I think we can still do enough with our rooms," one resident said. "When people brought in bam boards it was dangerous — you don't have to go to college to know that." I i tmeeting people and forming friendships Is a very important one for students, especially freshmen. Boisvert tries to let the students In his apartments arrange their own activities. That way it’s something they want to do. he said. There are countless activities to be planned. Happy hours, roller and Ice skating, pool tournaments, special dinners, hayrides, sleighrides. activities with other wings, community volunteer projects and many more. Much of what a student becomes depends on what he or she wants to become. Boisvert said. “The whole process of socialization is not entirely external. They have to go out and become what they want to as Individuals." Mary Walton, a medical technology major, said she is glad now that she decided to stay after the first few weeks. At first she missed home, her friends there, the steady income from her job. She wrote home telling them she was going to quit. But some of the women on her wing talked with her. she started to form new friendships, and pretty soon she had decided to stay. College gives a person more responsibility, but it doesn’t necessarily mean more freedom. Walton said. But when she did the things she had been doing and enjoying before college, she quickly discovered that study and play have to somehow be balanced. "That's where the responsibility comes in," she said. Freshmen learn the ins and outs of college living by Cherle Phillips "I hated my roommate for about the first three weeks. She was always in the room, always in my way. No privacy, no quiet to study in. I just wanted to leove. Quit school and go back home to my old friends, my job and my family." Welcome, freshmen, to college. Actually it's not really as bad as all that. Things settle down pretty quickly and roommates learn to adjust to one another. Even the freshman quoted above changed her mind about college. But it took a little help from her parents, her R.A. (resident assistant) and a particular instructor she happened to like well during the first weeks of classes. Many factors play a role in a freshman's adjustment to the college lifestyle. Some of the most important ones are the students' own self-concepts, the attitudes of their families and their ability to make new friends. R.A.s can help students who are homesick or lonely or even frightened of the new responsibilities that accompany starting college. Meg Wynn. R.A. on 4 ast Oak Ridge, said that the whole wing can come to represent a second family for students. They all treat each other as sisters, and some even look to her as a mother, she said. "Sometimes I have to act like a mother." she said. "At the beginning of first semester. I had to put some of the girls to bed once in a while because they’d come home so drunk. Here they don't tart Lindner pul the Ktnfl on the cehe have the protection of their parents. Besides that, they have a lot of freedom here and seem to feel pressured into doing things they wouldn't do at home." "Some freshman students go home nearly every weekend. They're trying to relive high school days, but then they don't get as much of a college experience," she said. Still other women on her wing have told her that they are glad to be starting at a new school because it gives them a chance to move away from their images which they felt they were "stuck with" In high school. The first day on campus is always a little scary. John Reck, 18. said that he was a little wary of the whole idea at first. "The food wasn't really too good, especially since I was used to good home cooking." he said. "The first couple weeks were kind of rough.” Reck said. "I didn't know anyone and it took awhile to get used to all the changes." But things started to settle down as soon as he started to study and get into his classes more, he said. Pretty soon he wasn’t writing home as much and he had made new friends. "College is something you never forget. I think everyone should try it for at least one year," Reck said. Special activities done as a dorm wing can help the socialization process along. Bob Boisvert. R.A. at Midway-craig Lodge, said that the process ofA farewell by Vicki Griffith r it to dorms I time is delving into the unknown. Macaroni and cheese has high priority on many ofFcampus lists along with tuna and hamburger. After the shopping is done the problem of carrying home all the food is always an adventure. The two "small" bags and the gallon of milk seemed lightweight for the first halfblock. For the next five blocks the bags gain ten pounds each. Finally during the last block with one bag ripped, the other slipping from your arm and the gallon of milk imprinting its plastic handle into your hand, you realize you should shop more often or buy less. Refrigerators and cupboards are the next challenge. Twelve bags of groceries will somehow have to be packed away into one refrigerator and three shelves. One house of men tried to solve the problem of mixing up their food by initialing all of it. They ran Into problems; four out of the six roommates had names that began with "T." OfFcampus students can identify each other by their "eau de fry" cologne. Frying and broiling In an oven that has never been cleaned adds to the fragrance that uniquely belongs to the off-campus student. Landlords can also make life interesting off-campus. One house of women had a bathtub with a slow drain. They contacted their landlord in the beginning of the year and he promised to fix it. At first, taking a shower meant waiting five minutes for the water to drain after the last person. During the semes ter the water level and draining time grew progressively worse. The draining time had increased to 15 minutes by second semester and. except for the first person, everyone was standing In someone else's shower water. By May the drain didn't work at all; instead the women used a bucket and tossed the water out the bathroom window. There are other stories: walking home with a six-pack of beer and drinking three cans to lighten the load, leaving a chair under a window for the roommate who never remembered her keys and wondering if paying the oil bill would be better than a balmy 42° house In January. But somehow, despite the stories, off-campus housing continues. It is part of the college living experience. And some of the stories will keep getting better year after year. Off-campus student get to be real housekeepers You've decided to say goodbye to dormland. trudged through winter slush and cold spring rains to look at dumps and other varying degrees of housing and signed the lease. Now It’s time to live off campus. For some, off-campus housing is sought after one. two or three years in the dorms. For others, it Is the only alternative when the dorms are full. Whatever the reason, off-campus living can be fun. as well as frustrating. Moving in offers the first Indication that living off campus will be different. A house seen in the winter, with five guys and their furniture, looks totally different In the summer with bare walls. Somehow all the things that made you decide to live there have vanished. The big roomy couch is replaced by one with two legs, and that "elegant" bar with the aquarium in the center and matching bar stools has become an old wooden dining room table that sags in the middle. How could you have missed the huge beer stain on the white wall? Why didn’t you notice then that the carpeting Is some color unknown to man? Welcome to off-campus living. Telephones begin the new world of off-campus living. In most cases one person gets chosen to pick up the phone or change phones from one house to the next. A senior student was chosen to take in the two phones from her old house and the one that was left at the new house. It took two backpacks to lug them to the phone company. It wasn't so bod except that she rode her bike and every time the bike hit a bump all the phones rang. Even visiting the phone company is an experience. The salespeople are hoping to sell students the latest phone styles in Eau Claire. Even though a student has strict Instructions to get the basic-black-dial-desk phone, the sales pitch prevails and a Trimline-llghted-push-button-in-a-subtle-rust-color (to match the living room carpeting) is chosen. Then the "sold" roommate has to explain to the others why having a phone will cost $25. Food and all its many phases becomes a part of the off-campus student's life. For many It's the first time to plan, shop, prepare and clean up after meals. It can be quite an experience. Grocery shopping alone for the first Long and winding stairs lead to many student homes.Living on Water Street by Jody Conner Living on Water Street is not so different from living anywhere else in Eau Claire — it has the usual landlord-tenant problems, roommate conflicts and general hassles. Yet there is something special about living on "The Street." School is only a few blocks away, a laundromat is just down the street and a grocery story is within yards of many apartments. For those so inclined there's a bar at every other address. Conceivably, a Water Street resident could live for years without leaving a five-block radius. I must admit, that thought did cross my mind when I lived for a year with another guy and his girlfriend in a cozy Water Street apartment. Cozy may be the wrong word On a scale of one to 10. our apartment was a definite five. In Water Street terms that meant it didn't have too many pests (l.e. rats or cockroaches) and the plumbing worked. It also meant you didn't feel guilty If the carpet got torn or If the champagne stains on the ceiling didn't come off (New Year's Eve, 1978). Like everyone, we started out with intentions to fix up the place. Our female roomie went so far as to buy paint for the place. But. after painting one room, the two males decided if she wanted to change the place, she could do it herself. Regardless of how the place looked, it was in a great location. Taverns to the left, bars to the right, a record shop across the street, and a restaurant downstairs. And school was only two blocks away. It was comforting to know that whether one was loaded down with books or just loaded, home was not far away. If getting home wasn't any problem, sometimes what followed you home was. After the usual Halloween street orgy, two guys came to the apartment "looking for Jim." We didn't have a Jim. When I finally convinced them Jim wasn't there, they wanted to know if I could "sell some chemicals or organics." On another occasion, shortly after I had moved in, I heard voices coming from my back porch. Upon investigation. I found six or seven junior high school kids partying. They told me that the porch had been their favorite party spot that summer. Unsympathetically. I confiscated their beer and told them to try the flat roof next door. If you couldn't meet Water Streeters, watching them was the next best thing. Though my roommate said I was weird. I enjoyed watching from the anonymity of my window. It sure beat TV on those nights when I was too broke to be out myself. My favorite scene was a boy and girl walking down the nearly deserted street at 3 a.m. holding each other close. He bent down to whisper some romantic notion In her ear. and she slapped him so hard he fell to the ground. He was so shocked he didn't get up for a minute. Watching the street shows you its different moods. Most people see It only as a bustling place for nightspots and easy pickups. But after the bars close and everyone goes home, it becomes quiet, almost desolate in appearance. The occasional person seems out of place. If the street normally looks ugly with its broken glass and crowded bars. It can be beautiful under a coat of freshly fallen snow. After the revelers leave, the streetlights cause a strange softness, quite at odds with the street's usual image. I went to live on "The Street" partially because of its party image, but left knowing a side of Water Street many I people never see.The T«u Kappa Epiilon bell real outside the Signs and symbols, Uke those on this Lake Street sorority fraternity's new house at First and Lake. house, distinguish Greek houses from others In the Mu dent rental district Greeks offer housing, friendship by Anne Kabat As the dorms become filled to overflowing. more students are venturing to off-campus living out of sheer necessity. Some of these students find fulfillment living In a fraternity or sorority house. “A fraternity offers a camaraderie that cannot be duplicated in a dorm situation." said Jim Young, president of Alpha Kappa Lambda. AKL Is one of five fraternities offering off-campus housing. The others are: Phi Sigma Epsilon. Alpha Phi Omega. Phi Gamma Delta and Tau Kappa Epsilon. Living in a fraternity house differs from the other offcampus or dormitory life because it is more structured. Young said. Weekly meetings are held, he said, and everyone must help with the household jobs. "With 17 guys living In one house, everyone must pitch in and help." he said. "Every Saturday morning is designated for this purpose." Young discovered fraternity life as a result of the housing crunch. A Spectator advertisement last year asked men who were interested in moving off campus to contact AKL. Young needed a place to stay so he responded to the offer solely for the housing, he said. AKL has five non-fraternity members living in the house. Young said there is no pressure placed upon them to join. Members are given first priority for housing, he said, but if too many apply, seniority determines who lives there. Fraternities and sororities are not the party life that many people think they are. Young said. Greeks are trying to erase the wild. "Animal House" image. Sorority members talked of other advantages. such as friendships and convenience. "The house provides a central meet ing place," Jody Wetterau. president of Delta Zeta. said. "Knowing you can place your symbol outside gives you a sense of pride and a source of recognl tion." The central location also helps for initiation purposes, she said. In previous years, the group needed to find a place to hold the ceremony. A house provides convenience and nurtures friendships, she said. "If someone comes up with an idea in the middle of the night, we can get up and work on it together.” Linda Harned. a Delta Zeta member said. "We feel closer as a unit." Delta Zeta. Sigma Sigma Sigma, and Alpha XI Delta are the sororities who rent off-campus housing. The larger number of people living in a house means cooperation is the key to success. Wetterau said. As in any house or dorm, she said, studying is difficult, and people usually study in the library. Rent is about the same as in renting a house with a group of people, she said. But membership fees can add up to be tween $150 and $200 per student. Both fraternity and sorority members insist membership is not a buying of friendship. "It is a lifetime organization which doesn't end when you leave school." Wetterau said. "You know you will always have these friends."UWEC student life: working 9 till 9, escaping the routine by Peg Carlson If Dolly Parton were to attend UWEC for one semester, she probably wouldn't complain anymore about working nine-to five. Although college Is a comfortable cushion between high school and "the real world" for many students, the cushion can get hard and lumpy at times. Working nine to five seems like a dream to most college students, espe dally after studying from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for one 50-minute test on something like the Greek version of "Gone With the Wind." After the first two weeks of the semester. students usually know for which classes they'll need three tablets, a dozen pens and shorthand lessons, as compared to the classes to which they could bring a pillow and blanket for nap time and be just as well off. Five days a week. 16 weeks a semester, UWEC students awaken and prepare for or plan the avoidance of that next class. Day-today routines — the same route to class, the same class, the same Instructor and the same classmates — drive a few crazed students to "the street." Experiencing "the street" seems to add that touch of variety these students crave. From the minute the wayward idea of intoxication enters his or her mind until perhaps late afternoon the next day, the student's routine is no longer ordinary. The creature that takes control of the student's body as he or she approaches Water Street says things the student wouldn't ordinarily say. It moons members of the opposite sex. jumps off the footbridge into the Chippewa River, and hitchhikes home, which is four blocks away. Left A studani pore over her leatbook to absorb it wisdom Below Don't at! UWEC tu dents want to take home a touventet Twhirl or jacket? Although the creature was a barrel of laughs the night before, it generally does not amuse the student the next morning. Sometime during the night, the creature pushed all the student's hair into his or her head and pulled it back out again This process went unnoticed during slumber, but left the head extremely sore the next morning. The creature also taped the student's tongue to the roof of his or her mouth and reminded him or her gleefully of last night's rubber checks. The student looks forward once again to the routine of ordinary tomorrow. 201Roommate encounters: the close kind by Vickie Griffith Beth I ten tee tptndt an evening papering for a te t The dorm room is piled with suitcases, boxes, plants and parents, and now Is the time to meet your roommate. Questions run back and forth In your head. Will she be weird? Is he normal? Is she a slob? Is that his stereo? Does she party? Are those his Kiss albums? What do I say when we’re alone? Every year at the end of August this ritual takes place. It should be called "Rrst Encounters of My Roommate" and it happens in dorms and apartments throughout Eau Claire. Roommates are a part of the college experience. Basically, It's no different than any other siutation, such as marriage. where two people live in the same 3n ii i space, said Dr. R. Kent Garrison, director of the University Counseling Center. The difference though, he said, is that It's the first time many students have ever lived In close proximity with some one who Isn't a family member. And the dorm rooms offer close proximity. Eau Claire's dorms are 110 percent full this year because students are living in lounges. Garrison believes that the extra 10 percent comes out of each individual s privacy. "Everyone needs alone time." Garrison said, and the dorm is setting trends to overlook that fact. Especially if roommates are not getting along, he said, tension and frustration can result. "Students who come to the counseling center seldom say 'everything is perfect except my roommate,'" Garrison said. Usually, he said, there is a combine tion of problems. "If academically it's not going well, if the person's morals are being threatened and if there are other problems, most likely there will be roommate problems,'' Garrison added. The counseling center views a roommate problem as an Interpersonal communications problem. Usually one roommate will come to the center and then the counselor asks for both roommates to talk to a counselor. "We have to be careful it doesn't turn into a witch hunt." Garrison said. One freshman from Murray Hall said she and her roommate are "compatible" and that is all. "I would like to be friends with my roommate, but we're too different." she said. Before she came to college she expected to be friends with her roommate, she said, but now she just expects to get along. This freshman said It made adjusting to college more difficult. She said she likes the people on her floor and that there is no one to switch roommates with, so she will make the best of the situation. "Whatever happens, happens." she said. Another freshman. Anne Wilcox, had better luck. She and her roommate get along well and haven't had any problems. "We have a lot of similarities." Wilcox said. She also said they are not together during the day. so they have time off from each other. "Sometimes lifestyles are too diverse and we recommend that they change roommates." Garrison said. But other times it may be a lack of communication, he said, and both roommates should try to focus on what the problem is. Dorms are not the only setting for roommate problems. Off-campus housing also can cause problems. Often there are too many people cramped In a house or apartment. Garrison said, and that causes problems with roommates trying to find a place to be alone. There are other hassles as well, such as paying the bills, cleaning the house or washing the dishes that can cause conflict among roommates. Dan Greil, a senior who lived in the dorms for two years, said he still likes living off-campus, "it's much better living off-campus because of less rules and more freedom." he said. "It's easier to find a place to get away and easier to get along with roommates." Whatever the problems and wherever they occur, the basic ingredient for better relations with a roommate is communication. Garrison believes that communication must be constantly worked at in dealing with a roommate or any other person. Roommates are definitely a part of college and a growing experience. And a person may even find that Kiss Isn't so bad at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Juke Buechl and Kathy Brotek spend a few musical moments with a guKarJobs put jingle in students' jeans by Vickie Griffith This is written after work as the grease from the grills is still on my hands and tonight's dinner at Davies lingers on my clothes. I'm a kitchen helper. I scrub soup pots and clean grills four nights a week to pay for all my fun and phone bills this semester. Part-time jobs are a part of many college student's lives. For some It helps pay for the extras. For others it pays tuition. Whatever the reasons, part-time jobs turn out to be an added dimenssion to college life. My first part-time job was on campus. The job was In an office In Davies and involved running errands and doing some typing. As a college junior, I felt qualified for the job until I learned I would have to take a typing test. Fifteen minutes before the test I frantically memorized how to type a business letter and prayed that somehow I would learn to type as I took the test. The secretary led me to a huge new Selectric, a typewriter with the eraser inside and no carriage For a few minutes I panicked as I searched for the button to turn it on. After finding the "on" button, the second problem was figuring out how to get the margins. I skipped that problem when I realized I had been sitting there for 10 minutes without typing a word. I typed the letter (without set margins) very slowly so I wouldn't have to figure out how to use the eraser. It took about an hour. I did get the job though; either the typing part must not have been very important or they thought I had guts and would make a good errand runner. The experience taught me to attempt anything when trying to get a part-time job. and it also gave me some spending money the next semester. One Eau Claire graduate. Miriam Nelson, worked at three bars, a grocery store and answered telephones during her years as an undergraduate. The money she earned, along with loans, grants and her parents' help paid for her college education. She said she liked working at bars because she saved money as Tom Peter ton tcoop Ice cream at Davie for ht» paycheck she worked. She found she could still see her friends and not have to fight the crowds on the other side of the bar. Nelson said a bartender has a certain prestige in a college town because people recognize and get to know the bartenders. Bartending gave her the most flexible hours of any of her jobs, she said. The other student bartenders were very good about switching hours, she said, so it was easy to get the hours she wanted. Although bar hours are not always conducive to student's schedules, Nelson said, that can be overcome by scheduling afternoon classes and avoiding eight o'clocks. Kit Murray, a junior, had a part-time job which became a full-time job last fall. As a freshman, she was a student worker in the business education and information management office. When the regular secretary quit, Murray was asked to become the full-time secretary. The job involves running the office, which is a model for word processing equipment. She took the fall semester off from school and is now the office systems manager supervising 10 student workers. That's what she wants to do after she graduates, she said, and the experience will definitely help her In finding a job then. Working part-time also makes you just a bit more Independent. As one student said. "It's nice to know that when the phone bill comes you can pay for it and not have to worry Mom and Dad. And if you do need to call, then they know that this time you're really broke."An ode to the unsung backpack by Lori Lau Consider the plight of the lowly backpack, the unsung companion of almost every university student. Backpacks faithfully accompany their owners as they trudge from class to class In every kind of weather. They are left to save tables for hungry students in a crowded Blugold Room. A backpack stoically bears the brunt of a student's burden of textbooks and patiently endures the indignity of being thrown on the floor in a bar or classroom. And all for what? A sharp word of abuse from the owner when the long-suffering backpack finally sticks its zipper in protest. Well, that's not really fair. When the backpack gives up the ghost, the owner realizes its Importance. "Mine had a broken zipper for almost two weeks, and I don't know how I made it without it." Barb Marshall, a senior majoring in journalism, said, shaking her head. Why Is the backpack of such value to its owner? For one thing, it saves the arms. Almost every backpack contains the many items necessary for class: pens, pencils, notebooks and textbooks. But most contain other, more specialized items as well. "I've got a calculator and a lab kit for dissecting and oh yeah, this," Daniel Zais said, pulling his class schedule card out of the bright blue backpack on the table beside him. Zais. a biology major, has had his backpack for about six months. Women who don't carry purses often use their backpacks for personal items, too. as Cindy Otts explained. Otts. an accounting student, said she was going out that night “so I've got a lot of make-up in here right now." Otts. a junior, said she also packs books, tissues. Rolaids and aspirin — "that’s a necessity" into her 7-semester-old backpack. "It’s usually so full that I have to carry some books." she said. "But it's really holding up well, no tears or anything." But backpacks go offcampus with their owners, too. "I take it everywhere." Claire Kryshak. a chemistry and business major, said of her brown leather back-pack, "I use it when I go home for the weekend. It's probably with me 10 hours a day." Chuck Boxrucker. an accounting major, agreed that backpacks are handy for road trips. Boxrucker's backpack, a World War I army-issue he inherited from his father, also accompanies him to Water Street, he said, "but I guess that's pretty normal." Other students, such as freshman Melinda Hayes, use their backpacks for personal expression. Hayes, whose blue L.LBean backpack is covered with political buttons ("Question Authority" and "No Draft" among them), said this is her second backpack. What happened to her first one? "Patrick Lucey autographed it and it had a John Anderson sticker." Hayes said. "I thought it was outdated."Anatomy of a college party by Jeff Custer 7KX) p.m.: I arrived at the house about an hour before the party was scheduled to begin. I knew the guys who lived there, so they said it would be okay. The house was very large and in fair condition. My guess was that is was at least 30 years old. It seemed a little nicer on the inside, but it was difficult to tell. All the furniture had been moved out and only a couch and a few chairs were left in the front living room. A few people stood around by a half-barrel in the kitchen. A stack of plastic cups stood on top of the refrigerator, and since there wasn't really anything going on yet. I figured I might as well have a few beers to pass the time. 8:00 p.m.: There weren't many more people at the party than when I had arrived, and some of the guys who lived there were getting worried that their party was going to be a flop. “Don't worry." I told them, "Nobody ever comes to these things until nine or ten. Let's just relax and have another beer." They agreed and followed me Into the kitchen. Above right. Jtm Hartman socializes at a Christmas party At right, two students find space to sit down and talk at a crowded party.I 9:30 p.m.: It was like someone had suddenly waved a magic wand over the house; one minute, there were a dozen or so people milling around the living room, the next minute, you couldn't move for fear of crushing someone. The noise level had increased by four times. The combination of loud music and talking people was iust a dull roar to me. By this point. I was lost somewhere in the living room, just letting the flow of the crowd move me back and forth. I I pushed my way carefully through the crowd to where they had set up another half-barrel in the living room. I recognized a girl from my poll sci class and I wandered over to say hello. “HI, how's it going?” I said, smiling and trying to look as cool as I possibly could. She looked up at me and squinted as If she was trying to get me in focus. "Oh. um. not too bad. How about you?" she said, still squinting. "I guess I'm okay, too." I soid. From there the conversation went downhill. I shifted my feet and looked around the room. "So. tell me,” I said, not really sure what I was going to say. "Urn, what's your major?" She looked at me for a while and didn't really seem to comprehend what I was saying. She raised and lowered her eyebrows a couple of times and finally looked back up at me. "What was your name again?" she said, with a deep look of concern. I responded by pouring beer down my front and excusing myself to go to the bathroom. 11:15 p.m.: I had a pretty good view of the living room from where I sat. The party had been going strong for about an hour and a half and by now enough people had left so that moving around was no longer a problem. I had long since planted myself In a chair, deciding that that was the best way to keep from getting Into trouble. There were now several small groups of people standing around talking rather than one large crowd. One group was singing crude versions of the school fight song while another group just seemed to be standing and watching. Three guys stood by the door arguing about everything from metaphysics to why the Vikings couldn't beat the Pack ers. In one corner I recognized the girl I had been talking to earlier. She was wrapped around a tall dark-haired guy in a leather jacket. Five minutes later, they left together. "Her loss." I said to myself as I pushed myself up to get another beer. 2:45 a.m.: I woke with a start and for a moment forgot where I was. The light from the stereo was the only light in the room, and for some reason there seemed to be a slight mist hanging in the air. The whole room smelled like beer, and as I rose, the carpet made a squishing sound beneath my feet. My head hurt, and as I walked toward the door. I had to steady myself against the wall. Once in the hallway. I could see that a few people were still up and partying in the kitchen. One person, whom I Should have recognized, raised a beer toward me. "Custer, you're not leaving already, are you? We still have another half-barrel to finish!" I grimaced at the thought of one more beer. I just shook my head and waved goodbye. As I was walking out the door. I heard someone yell "Hope you had a good time!" "Oh yeah. I did." I said, and closed the door behind me. I stood on the front porch for a moment and thought. "Well, at least I think I did." Exercising for health, enjoyment by Gndy a.e. Vissers • Right. this Jtiidmt is one oI many who use Tower weight room facilities Below neither rain not sleet nor snowy sidewalks keeps Kelly Cummings from jogging her distance. Far right. Ann Cook bends down during a Ja tier else routine. I hate exerciae. I always have. In high school I was the gym class rebel. When the rest of the class did calisthenics with their arms. I mimicked them with my fingers. My friends thought I was hilarious. My gym teacher did not. One day she called me into her office and said. “I noticed that you like to lead your little group. I'm going to give you the opportunity to lead the entire class." It was one thing to be a cut up in gym class. It was another to be a fool. I spent the weekend reading books on physical conditioning. Come Monday. I was ready, and from that day I led the class In calisthenics. It was at that moment, some years ago. that I learned the importance and benefits of regular exercise. I learned the pleasure of good health is the joy of being able to use your body as you wish, running without fatigue and playing without getting sore. And one essential part of any program for a healthful living is daily exercise. Ideally, physical fitness should be achieved in youth, pursued in middle age and never relinquished. The pursuit of physical fitness Is achieved at the university with the two credits of required physical education. Although with the wide variety of participation activities offered. It is also an important learning experience. Advocates of the requirement say it gives students more activity than walking from the library to the cafeteria, which Is all they might get If the classes were optional. "Although many students realize the importance of physical activity," Stephen Kurth. director of athletics, said, "schedules often do not allow for a period of regular strenuous activity and skill development." With volleyball, basketball, running and swimming among the offered intramural sports, and the wide variety of physical education classes. It seems the students at (JW-Eau Claire are getting their share of activity. (Not to mention the walk up the hill, the walk across the footbridge and the climb up the stairs to McPhee. Kurth said many students re quest that they be given a half-credit for climbing the steps to class.) Regular exercise contributes to total body fitness, Kurth said. It is the body's readiness to meet and withstand the stresses and needs of daily living. It is the body's ability and reserve to react and deal with emergencies. "However, the statement 'exercise Is good for you is a naive generalization." wrote Stanley Johnson In “Sport. Exercise and You." "That for several rea sons can be as dangerous as well as if Aim Cook keep In thape wHh an much cIms misleading. Certain critical limitations must be applied when considering each potential benefit of regular exercise.' Johnson stressed that the effects of regular exercise depend upon the demand Imposed upon the body. "Many people have an erroneous concept of physical fitness." he wrote, "and do not realize that they can be physically fit without being skilled in sports or spend log an hour or more every day in practice." Exercise not only improves blood circulation. tones up muscles, increases the efficiency of the heart and lungs. It adds certain motor skills: agility, speed, reaction time, movement time, balance and coordination. Exercise is effective in taking the edge off the daily tension buildup. Most people believe they relax during sleep. Johnson wrote. Various studies have proven this is Incorrect; sleep is not synonymous with relaxation. It has been shown however, that a well-conditioned Individual Is able to relax and less likely to suffer mental depression. And while a diet (or a new girdle) can change your figure, only exercise can reshape your body proportions. Only exercise can increase the efficiency of your cardiovascular system, improve your state of mind, decrease body fat and cause a drop In dialstoic blood pressure. A word of warning though, nearly all the physiological benefits of regular exercise are reversible, so when an exercise program is discontinued, your physical condition returns to the stage before exercise at an extremely quick rate. As Ponce de Leon wrote. "Exercise is the means to an alert, vigorious and lengthy life. Inactivity will kill you." 209 r Religious groups in number and members grow by L. J. Hanson Students who enroll at UW-Eau Claire have varied reasons for attending college. For some, college is a ticket to better job opportunities. For others, it’s a way to fulfill the wishes of their parents. But for some, college is a place to search for answers to life's perplexing questions. This search can take many forms, but it often draws students outside of the classroom and into the religious community. The religious opportunities at UWEC are rich in diversity. The Ecumenical Religious Center, located just off campus. is the home for several faiths. It houses the Newman Community (Catholic), the University Lutheran Church, and United Ministries in Higher Education, which serves Baptists. Methodists. Presbyterians. Episcopalians and others. There are also many student religious organizations on campus. And if involvement in these organizations is any measure of student Interest, then religious interest is spreading at UWEC. Of the 16 religious organizations on campus. eight were chartered In I97B or later. The newly formed organizations include the Dharma Study Group (Buddhist) and Hillel (Jewish), but most of the new organizations are Christian groups. There also has been an increase in the membership of older Christian groups. The Rev. Louis Smith, the Lutheran minister at ERC, said the evangelical Christian groups in particular have been the most visible on campus in recent years. Smith said the prominence of these groups is reflective of society as a whole. There has been a trend toward "fundamental, sectarian, very personally oriented religions." he said. Cameron Anderson, staff worker for Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, said the trend on campus is due in part to disillusionment with other philosophies. "It's pretty clear to more students all the time that the mentality and presup positions of the ‘60s don’t work and that secular humanism and other philosophies of that type asked hard questions, but haven't provided hard answers." he said. Anderson said students have decided not to be bought off by a materialistic culture. They want answers to “real" questions, he said, such as, "Is there a God?" The number of students involved na tion wide in Inter-Varsity has double in Father David Brrhm talk with a uudent before Mau the last five years. Anderson said. The UWEC Inter-Varsity group also has grown. In 1978-79 it had approximately 35 participants. This year, the group has more than 80 participants. Anderson said. Another campus evangelical group. Campus Crusade for Christ, also has grown significantly and has become the largest religious organization on cam pus. It has grown from a group of ap proximately 25 In the fall of 1978 to approximately 120 In the fall of 1980. The small group Bible studies it sponsors has from 180 to 200 participants, and a multi-media production it spon sored in early March, entitled "If I Should Die." drew more than 1900 viewers. Kurt Loosenort. staff adviser for Campus Crusade, said a key factor in the group’s success Is its emphasis on practical Christianity. “Students are interested in Christianity when it's kept Biblical, clear and practical." he said. The group stresses God's forgiveness and the importance of love for others. Loosenort said. He also said the members of the group try to foster good relationships and friendships with others, rather than behaving like "religious I paratroopers " The name ••evangelical'' encom passes many different groups with different theological doctrines. Nonetheless. evangelicals share two identifying characteristics. Loosenorl said. First of all. they consider the Bible to be infallible. historically reliable and the inspired word of God. Second, they clearly explain the role of Jesus Christ as not only a deity but as the savior of mankind. Anderson of IVCF. defined evangeli cals as. "an increasing number of people taking very seriously the person and work of Jesus Christ as revealed through the Word of God (Bible). They believe that through faith, there's a mes sage of hope for all man and are com-mitteed to sharing that message." "The ultimate claim we make is that Christ is able to forgive us from our sin." Anderson said. "IV is a group of people that exist because they've been forgiven." Besides, the religious guidance stu dents get. Anderson said, "many of them find a real support group in terms of friendship." The students come and struggle through issues together, he said. Chi Alpha, another evangelical group formed on campus In 1979. also pro vides support for some students. Chairman Fritz Danek said the group members encourage one another in their faith and in their studies. "We uplift one another in prayer and friend ship." Danek said. "It's nice to know that somebody else cares." 211 ISeniors TIMOTHY L ABRAHAM Journalism. Wiuuu CATHY LYNN ACHERMAN. Journalism, Beloit CHERYL ANOERSON. Muwc Therapy. Coon Rapids. MM DOMNA A ANDERSON.

Appleton 215 Grit pays off for concertmaster by L.J. Hanson If (JW-Eau Claire offered a major In sheer grit and determination, surely Helga Hansen would have signed up for It; and she probably would have aced every course. Hansen's college career has been a model of selfdiscipline. Besides pursuing a double major in mathematics and music. Hansen has taken on many other responsibilities She holds the highly sought after position of concertmaster of the CJWEC Symphony Orchestra. She also gives private violin lessons, works as an assistant to the orchestra's conductor. Rupert Hohmann, and grades papers for John Krajewski. assistant professor of mathematics. It becomes easy to see why she was named one of this year's outstanding seniors "If there's a secret of success for me. it’s persistence." Hansen said "I think sometimes I'm just too stubborn to quit until the task is done." When Hansen decided to major in both music and mathematics, many of her friends were skeptical, she said. "People said I'd be going to school forever. I got a lot of incredulous looks." Nonetheless. Hansen has managed to finish both majors in the customary four years. She did it by averaging 18 credits a semester, although she carried 20 credits for two semesters. Hansen said that even though the disciplines of math and music do not appear to be related, they are not as dis similar as some people think. "There's a lot In music that's very mathematical, and there's a lot in math that's very artistic." Both disciplines re quire a similar type of thought process, she said Anyone who has attended a university concert has probably seen Hansen. She performs with the chamber orchestra. the opera theater ensemble and a string quartet. But Hansen's most noticeable position is as concertmaster of the symphony orchestra. During a concert, she is the one who tunes the orchestra and shakes hands with the conductor at the end of every performance. However, her job involves much more than what is seen at a concert. Behind the scenes, she is responsible for the unity of the violin section. She decides how the music should be bowed and marks it accordingly. She Is expected to learn the music before the other orchestra members so that she will be able to demonstrate parts to the other players. And. of course. Hansen usually performs the solo violin parts. This involves extra practice time, not to men lion wear and tear on the nerves. Hansen said she tries to overcome her nervousness by concentrating on the excitement of performing. "I really do enjoy performing." she said. "But If worse comes to worst, you just go out there and shake, feel sick to your stomach and do it anyway.” In order to learn all the musk, Hansen has to practice many hours a week. When she was preparing for a duo-recital her junior year, she said, she practiced three hours a day in addition to her usual rehearsal times. Hansen's love of the violin began when she was 8 years old. She asked her mother if she could play with her father's violin. Because of her interest, her father began giving her lessons, and she has been playing ever since. Hansen's father made her first violin. He was apprenticed as a carpenter In Denmark, and when his violin was lost in the immigration process, he built another violin. It was with this violin that Hansen learned the fundamentals of musk. When Hansen graduates In May. she plans to marry Joseph Lumbrix, a former UWEC student who was a cellist in her string quartet. She said she will be looking for work In a math-related field. "But I want for sure to stay Involved in my musk somehow." She said she plans on doing this by becoming involved In a clvk orchestra and by continuing to give private lessons. But whatever she does, she will always do it with persistence. She said discouragement doesn't make her quit, it only makes her more determined to succeed. "You just have to trust that the results will come." she said. i.MARY JANE DAHLQUtST. Chemistry. Rhinelander BARBARA DAVIS. Social Work. Reway CARL W DECJTSCH, Psychology. Cadahy DARRELL DOEPKE.

They are surprising sides, certainly not typical of the theology student stereotype. "B. J." himself even admits that most people are "thrown for a ringer" when they meet him and later learn of his professional goal. He has been a (JW-Eau Claire student for four years. As a pre-theology student. he chose a history major and a political science minor because "it seemed interesting." Next fall. B. J. will begin his four years of seminary training at a seminary in Minneapolis St. Paul. B.J.'s friends describe him. using adjectives such as honest, understanding, deep and wise. They also like to tell of his numerous practical jokes. There was one Involving a fake wrist cast, made with cast plaster mix which B.J. had "mysteriously" gained access to during a short hospital stay. He had applied a cast to a friend's wrist and told another friend. John, that he had been hurt on the dorm steps. But the joke didn't last very long. "I felt so guilty about making John feel so MARIE LA SKA. Public Health. Eau Claire LYNN LASZEWSKI. Public Health. Steven Point sympathetic and sorry about the injury, that I had to tell him It was only a joke." B.J. said. Then there was the Halloween prank which began with a series of threatening notes being sent to John (a favorite "victim”) telling how B.J. was "going to get him good" with a practical joke on Halloween. At 5:30 a.m. on the designated morning, B.J. and an accomplice crept into John's room and presented him with an enormous breakfast in bed. "It was fun to get him all worried and then do something nice for him in the end." B.J. said. Four years ago while on his way home from Duluth and the college he was considering attending, he passed through Eau Claire. It was all snowy and white and pretty, and he decided then that he would go to CJWEC instead. B.J.'s primary goal is just to be happy and not let himself down. He chose ministry as a profession because it will place him In a rich atmosphere for seek Ing answers to questions which he wants to try to answer. "I've always asked the question 'why?'" he said. "Ever since I was a young kid I've wanted to know why we are who we are and why man even exists at all." "But it seems like the farther into the search I get. the farther I get from the answers." he mused. "Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be."LORI DIANE LAU. Journalism. Eau Claire MARGARET LEBRUN.

Chippewa Falls This internship gives social work student head start in career by Lori Lau Although Beth Richter talks frequently about her mothers and her children, she Isn't a member of a commune or an extended fam-ily. Richter, a New Berlin native, spends two days a week working at the Parent-Child Center In Chippewa Falls to fulfill a requirement for her social work major. She works with the parents and children In the center's Head Start program. During a typical day there, she could be discussing the importance of children's art with the parents or taking the kids to see the animals In Irvine Park. “I usually work with the parents.” she said. Parents are required to become involved in some way with the center, she 22«Jenny Price, one of the Hoed Surt children, always give Beth Richter a big -Hello" hog said, because "the Head Start program emphsizes that they are the best teachers for their children." Head Start, which also screens out children with special needs, teaches parents how to teach their kids. Richter said. The staff talks with the parents on topics ranging from dealing with their own anger to handling their children's fears, she said. The parents also work with the 24 children enrolled In the pro gram, as Richter does whenever there's a shortage staff or parent-volunteers. The children, who range from sleepy infants to active yearolds, are at the center from 9 a.m. to I p.m.. Richter said, and the older ones participate In a variety of activities. During a day upstairs with the kids. Richter may discuss jobs with them, sing songs or play games. "I'm real good at Duck, Duck. Goose. " she said with a smile. "I'm a fast runner." She's also helped escort them on several field trips, including the one to Irvine Park and another to the fire department. Richter, who has worked at the center since September, isn't paid, but she said she is getting more than academic credit for her work there. Besides the social work experience, she said, she's also benefiting from the seminars on parenting. Richter is planning to attend graduate school next year to work toward a master's degree in social work, but her experience at the center should help her be a great parent someday, right? "Well. I don't know that it will make me a great parent." she said slowly. "I've learned a lot about being one. It's more work than most people realize." FRED C. STOLL. Social Sc tones .

"Did I take the right classes?" "Did I cram for tests and forget it all?" Dave Steel. UW Eau Claire accounting student said he was preoccupied with these questions when beginning his coop internship but had "no problems" with any such worries. Steel worked for Blue Cross Blue Shield United of Wisconsin. He began the internship July 1. and finished Dec. 30. For 2Vi months. Steel reiewed forms for mathematical accuracy and completeness and reviewed reimbursement rates to get acquainted with the firm's procedures and forms. He then was pro moted to junior accountant status and audited Medicare facilities Steel spent seven weeks traveling for field audits, where a group of accountants would work at the Medl care unit being audited "You literally live with your group. Instead of the usual eight hours it may become as many as 13 or 14 hours for five days at a time," Steel said. Steel said the internship helped him put things in perspective. "When you're a student, you can only prepare as far as the class will take you," he said. "You work with numbers. Mistakes are marked wrong. On the job you're aware that you're working with actual dollars.” "From the start I was treated like a junior and exposed to the same evaluations and criticisms as the other juniors. Under these conditions you try to learn as much as you can as fast as you can,” Steel said. He said that although he was ac customed to competition for grades and interclass politics, interoffice politics is a science itself. "What you wear, who your friends are. everything about you must adapt to office conditions," Steel said. Steel said time management was an important lesson. "I found that there are only so many working hours In a day and they must be spent wisely to accom plish any goals." he said. Steel said he enjoyed his intern ship and may work for Blue Cross-Blue Shield after graduating In May. "Experience makes a difference. It put me ahead of many of my classmates. I’m a lot more marketable." Steel said. 229Seniors JEFFREY Q FRITSCM. Advert itmg. Herrlhurst TIMOTHY N. FRITZ. Management Information Sy»«em». Eau Claire JACKLYN GALL. Management.

Ashland PEOGY SUE MANTIK, Accounting. AbbotsfordBusiness major in training by Mary Haefner It all started by accident. If It hadn’t been for a fall on some bleachers, CJW-Eau Claire senior Kristine Levandoski would not be what she is today: a business major who moonlights as an athletic trainer. Levandoski is in her third year as a trainer for the university sports department. She is one of 11 staff members who are headed by certified trainer Glenn Meidl. She said she had been athletic all through high school and that was part of the reason she became a trainer. "Actually, it all happened by accident." she said, explaining how a fall made her turn to training. During her freshman year, she said, while managing the women’s swim team, she fell against the swimming pool bleachers in the McPhee Physical Education Building She had been practicing to try out for the tennis team, but she tore cartilage In her knee. "This made me give up my hopes of becoming a tennis player. I was on crutches for 3Vt months," Levandoski said. "But they (the university sports department) were desperate for sports trainers, so I volunteered ” Levandoski. a native of Racine, said she is a trainer for all sports, men’s and women’s. She said her most important job is to coordinate the prevention of injury. At the start of every new season, she said, she and her colleagues show the athletes how to do their warm-up exercises and the correct ways to prevent and care for their injuries, such as caring for sore muscles or torn tiga ments. Levandoski said no special training is required to become a trainer, and that she just learned as she went along She took a class in training at (JW-Parkside. she said, but that was the summer after her first year as a trainer. Levandoski said that training the football team is the most demanding be cause there is so much contact among the players, and consequently many in juries. "Men are big babies." she said with a teasing laugh. On a gentler note, she said. "Football players are some of the most sensitive and most misunder stood people I've seen." She talked about her relationship with the male athletes and said there must be a fine line of respect between trainer and player. "Respect has to be there." she said. "The guys can tease, but they have to know they (and I) can’t overstep the bounds." Women. Levandoski said, are harder to work with because they lend to think trainers can cure their injuries. "They don’t realize only time heals bodily Injuries." she said. One might expect an athletic trainer to be a physical education major or minor. or at least be interested in teaching. Such is not the case with Levandoski. who is a marketing major with an inter est In advertising. Her dream, she said, is to become an account executive with an advertising agency. "I'd like to make up the campaigns and organize the artists." she said. But her experience as a trainer will still prove helpful to her career, she said, because it helped her learn how to work with people. And that, she said, can be an important part of any busi ness career. PATRICK W. MARZOFKA. Economic». Wisconsin Rapids PATRICIA ANN MASYGA. Accounting. Cumberland TIMOTHY J. MATTILA. Marketing.

Finance, Creendale KENNETH T, SILVERUNG Management information Syatema, Cadott by Jody Conner With inflation up. the economy down and the oil companies doubling their profits, many people blame their problems on business. If we suspect that business people are unethical, then we suspect that business students are potentially unethical. The School of Business and the students in it are aware of the ethics question. said Patrick Marzofka. a senior majoring In economics and business. ‘ They (professors) discuss it in class." he said. "Not In all the courses because it doesn't apply, but in other courses they look at how business decisions affect their employees and the community." For several years the School of Business has offered an optional course in business ethics. The course Is a good Idea, he said, but there Is no reason it has to be taught from a business viewpoint. It's good for business students to experience other viewpoints, Marzofka said. Although Marzofka. who is from Wisconsin Rapids, did not take the class, he participated in a business ethics conference held in Eau Claire last fall. An entire day was spent discussing ethics with students, business people, clergy and instructors from all fields. Marzofka said. Most people who really criticize business don't understand business, he said. Business people care about their decisions and the effects on people, he said, but they are also responsible for managing the business properly. "It's easy to sit back and criticize business students for being money-hungry and unethical," Marzofka said. "I doubt that anyone is going to go out half-cocked and make poor decisions.” Like the stereotype, some business majors just want to make money, he said, but many more choose the Reid because it is a challenge. "Business is Interesting, stimulating, and it’s challenging," he said. "It helps you grasp concepts. Once you get Into business you find it isn't as dry as some people label it." Marzofka said he would like to find a career In marketing or as a brand-line manager, partially because it would allow him to serve the public. "The whole concept of marketing is that you find out what people want, what society wants, what they don't have," he said. "Then you figure out a way that you can profitably serve them. Give them what they want and employ yourself at it." Some majors, like politics or sociology. are supposed to improve society, he said, but in business you're actually do ing it.Seniors DAVID W.

Barb Graper, a senior majoring in special education, knew when she was a sophomore that she did not want to teach special educa tlon, but the conflict didn't bother her. "I want to teach elementary education, and my special ed. degree will certify me to do that." she said. "I didn't transfer my major because if I do want to teach special ed. later In life I'll have that option.” Graper said student teacher relationships are easier to establish when a teacher stays with a class of students all day. Graper became Interested In special education through a high school community service class where volunteers would go to the combined nursing home and home for the retarded to visit and help the residents. Graper is from Pewaukee and would like to work at the parochial elementary school she attended there. "I like parochial schools because the attitudes of the students, teachers and parents are better." Graper said. Graper is planning to be married July 18. 1981, to Tim Abair. an accountant In Wausau.

New Richmond One of the most important things Susan Raugh learned during her four years of undergraduate study is that communicative disorders doesn't just involve speaking problems. It involves language, hearing and voice problems, too. It fact, the first step in treating a person with a communicative disorder is to determine the nature of the disorder Itself. For Raugh. the rood to this understanding of her major began several years back. Raugh decided to study communicative disorders when she was In Newman High School In Wausau. She wanted to work in the health field but wanted to avoid the heavy science classes required for nursing. For her. a major in communicative disorders seemed perfect. (JW-Eau Claire was Raigh's choice for several reasons. First, she said, not many schools offer the major. Sumh Raugh plant to attend graduate to atudy communicative disorder • Health Field Also. Eau Claire was close to her home, she said, and she liked the campus. Raugh worked as a Red Cross volunteer during her freshman year. Her work gave her experience In relating to people with disabilities. But her Junior year was her toughest, she said. "It was the first year that I had to deal with people." she said. Raugh said she didn't consider the job market when she began her studies. A recent federal law requiring schools to provide speech therapists has boosted the demand for communicative disorder majors significantly. she said. Raugh's next goal is graduate school. She's applied at four schools, including (JWEC, and she said It's now a case of getting accepted. "Now. I'll Just have to sit and wait." she said. KAREN RINKA. Special Education.

IL by Jim Grzybowski Some people consider nursing majors lucky. Many nursing graduates can choose the city and even the hospital where they want to work. But to Julie Johnson, a 21 year-old Green Bay native majoring in nursing, everything isn't as perfect as it seems. She agrees that nursing majors generally have no problem getting a job, but she is quick to point out that there are many drawbacks to nursing, too. The pay is not bad. she said, but nurses often must work long hours, evenings, weekends and holidays. Johnson, who has wanted to be a nurse since her childhood, said she decided to become a nurse for one basic reason. "I've always wanted to work closely with people." she said. She said the nursing program at (JW-Eau Claire is excellent but very demanding. One requirement of the nursing program is that students spend some time working at hospitals In Eau Claire or Chippewa Falls. Johnson said she started working at Luther Hospital one day a week the summer after her sophomore year. This year she worked 20 hours a week at Sacred Heart Hospital on the floor where cancer patients are treated. Previously she had worked on the psychology and maternity floors. Johnson said students are moved from floor to floor to give them practical experience in every facet of nursing. When she first started working at Sacred Heart, Johnson said, she was re sponsible for just one or two patients on her floor. But during her last semester, she had to tend to all the patients on her floor. Nurses' jobs vary from floor to floor and from hospital to hospital. Johnson said. "On some floors the doctors recognize that the nurses can do things they can’t or don’t have the time for." she said. On other floors they don't. They Julie Johnson checks on her patient s breath hg want us to be more subordinate." Johnson also participated In a Community Health Program run by Eau Claire's Public Health Agency. In this program, she said, students visit with various people throughout the community. such as pregnant women and the elderly. "When you first think of nursing, you think of hospitals." she said. "This is a different setting. Most students like this better.” Johnson said that after graduation she would like to work in a hospital and also work toward her master's degree She said she would like to teach nursing at the college level someday. She said some people are misinformed about what nurses do. "I guess some people don't have a good impression of nursing as a profession." she said. “We're trying to change that. We feel we have a lot to offer. "When you know that you're helping someone, it makes up for everything else." j I SHARON CONOIT. Nursing. Eau CUre STEFFI DENNER. Nursing.

Health Care Admin.Ronald Reagan ertoxatr a Republican victory with WitcontanttM Robert Karlen, elected to the Senate, and Steve Gunderaon. elected Third District Representative Reagan wins presidential election by Tom Lindner The most recent polls had shown Ronald Reagan slightly ahead of President Jimmy Carter as Americans went to vote Nov. 4. Events In Iran the weekend preceding the election, a poor debate performance. Impatience with Carter's efforts to boost the economy and general dissatisfaction with the Carter presidency, however, changed that slight lead into an electoral vote landslide. Reagan, a former governor of California who had failed to even get his party's nomination In two earlier efforts, was protected the winner before voting booths from the Midwest to the West coast had even closed. The election that some political observers had forecast would be a nail-biter was far from it. When the electoral votes were counted. Reagan finished with 469. compared to Carter's 49. Republican Reagan, who at 69 was the oldest man to be elected president, did well throughout the country. earning 51 percent of the popular vote to Carter's 41. Illinois Congressman and Independent candidate John Anderson, popular on university campuses throughout the country. Including UW-Eau Claire, finished with less than 7 percent, but enough to qualify for federal campaign aid. As part of his electoral vote landslide. Reagan carried every state but Georgia. Maryland. Minnesota. Rhode Island. West Virginia. Hawaii and the District of Columbia. Fifty-three percent of the nation's eligible voters went to the polls. Students voting at the polls in the Davies Center on the CJWEC campus waited in lines that often stretched far into the Blugold Room from the voting machines located in front of the University Bookstore. Some students were actually waiting in line to vote when they heard that two television networks had already projected that Reagan would be the 40th president. As Reagan's vote total increased throughout the night, a boldly evident shift to the right also appeared in other elections throughout the country. The Republican Party picked up 11 seats in the U.S. Senate and took control there for the first time since 1955. In the pra cess. Howard Baker, who had earlier made an unsuccessful attempt of his own to out maneuver Reagan for the GOP nomination, replaced Robert Byrd as Senate majority leader. The list of losers Included some of the most powerful and best-known members of the Senate. George McGovern. Frank Church. Birch Bahr, Gaylord Nelson. Warren Magnuson and John Culver were all defeated. vacating important Senate posi- tions that would eventually be filled by their political opponents. The GOP sweep was not confined to the Senate. In the House, the Democrats retained control, but the Republicans picked up 33 additional seats — their strongest showing In the House of Re presentatives since 1966. To gain those seats Republicans defeated other Democratic power-holders. Majority Whip John Brademas and influential Ways and Means Committee Chairman Al Gilman. Reagan had started his 1980 campaign shortly after the 1976 vote was counted. A political action committee raised funds, polled the populace and kept Reagan's name and ideals in the public realm. Theoretically the campaign began nearly a year before the November election when Reagan was defeated In the Iowa caucuses by a surprisingly successful George Bush. What followed was the longest presidential campaign in G.S. history. With that early victory under his belt, the former congressman. CIA director and ambassador to China, said "Big Mo" was on his side. It wasn't however, as Reagan went on to win in New Hampshire and the vast majority of the other primaries, quickly outdistancing Bush. Baker, John Con-nally. Robert Dole and other GOP candi dates In the convention delegate count and leading Illinois Rep. Anderson, also a GOP primary contender, to begin an independent effort. The Republican delegates who met in Detroit In July nominated Reagan as they had been expected to do. The only unanswered question was answered on the eve of the convention's last day when Reagan made an unprecedented visit to the convention hall to dispel rap idly-spreading rumors that former President Gerald Ford would join him on the ticket and run the executive branch through some sort of partnership if elected. Reagan's actual choice for the second spot on the GOP ticket was his most ardent primary rival — George Bush. President Carter, meanwhile, was being opposed by Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy. Though Carter decided not to campaign so that he could personally monitor the Iranian hostage situation. Kennedy's effort, though substantial and successful In several states, never really threatened Carter's renomination. A speech by Kennedy preceding Carter's renomination was the highlight of the New York convention, but doubts among voters about Kennedy's actions in the Chappaquidick incident and the overall conservative mood stalled his efforts. The general election campaign race was considered close by most political observers and pollsters from the start. A debate between Carter and Reagan just a week before the election seemed to work to Reagan's advantage and events in Iran before the election may have affected its outcome, just as it had affected Carter’s entire campaign. Specu lation that the 52 Americans could possibly be released resurfaced just days before the election, though such observations were quickly denied, they renewed concern about the hostages. It was Carter's poor performance, however, that four out of five participants In an Election Day poll, cited as the reason they voted for Reagan. Only 67 percent of Democratic voters sup ported the president. Jews and working class voters were fairly split and blacks were the only traditional Democratic (82 percent of black voters supported Carter.) On Election night not only were the networks projecting Reagan the winner before the polls had closed, but Carter conceded defeat and Reagan, the former movie actor, acknowledged victory. "I am not frightened by what lies ahead.' Reagan said at a victory cde bratton. "We'll survive the problems we face right now." Fk»t Lady Rosriyn Carter campaigned in Eau Claire the day bet ore the elections GOP sweeps Wisconsin by Tom Lindner The Republican conservative sweep that spread across the country election night not only gave Ronald Reagan the keys to the White House, but it also replaced numerous Democratic legislators with Republicans. Wisconsin congressmen were no exception. CI S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson was one of the established Senate liberal Democrats who lost their seats in the election. Nelson, seeking his fifth term, was dfr feated by Robert Kasten, a 38-year-old Republican who had claimed Nelson was a man whose time had come and gone- Kasten. a former House member who was defeated by Lee Dreyfus in his bid for the GOP gubernatorial nomination In 1978, defeated Nelson. 64. by a narrow margin. Kasten acquired 51 per cent of the vote, compared to Nelson's 49 percent. Another Wisconsin Democrat who lost his Congressional seat was 3rd District Rep. Alvin Baldus Steve Gunderson. 29. dashed Baldus' hopes for a fourth term by a margin similar to Kas ten's. Gunderson, a former state legislator and congressional aide, got 51 per-A Mudent ilukti the umplf ballot posted In Davie Center cent of the votes, while Baldus got 49 percent. The candidates had participated in a debate at OWEC. In the race for the 68th state assem bly seat there was a Democratic victor, as former Rep. Joseph Looby defeated incumbent Republican William Gagin. Fifty-seven percent of the district's voters selected Looby and 43 percent chose Gagin. On-campus students who voted at Davies Center went with the winner In only one of the congressional and legislative races. Students favored Gunderson over Baldus by a margin of 659-374. In the G.S. Senate race, however. Nelson received 575 votes, compared to Kasten's 562. Students also favored the losing candidate in the assembly election with 439 votes going to Gagin and 430 going to Looby Voters throughout Eau Claire, including those on campus, waited through long lines as a large turnout over loaded voting machines Lines on campus often reached from the voting machines In front of the bookstore Into the Blu gold Room. Polls In the city closed well after the 8 p.m. closing time because of the lines of voters waiting to use the machines. Reagan sets priorities by Tom Lindner It was Jimmy Carter's inability to deal with the economy that helped Ron aid Reagan win the 1980 election and it was the troubled U S. economy that the new president began to work on first. Immediately after the election, Reagan began meeting with experts to re view various proposals. Reagan and his associates viewed his victory and the victories of other Republicans as a man-date. •'The election is a clear mandate that the programs of the immediate past have not worked and that the people want to try something different." The difference the American public got in Ronald Reagan was the most conservative government to control the executive branch since the early 1950s. Reagan's victory margin, however, was far from a landslide in the popular vote column and only one-quarter of the adult population bothered to go and vote. So. Reagan and his administration have to gam the support and confidence of this vast majority of people who had stayed home Nov. 4. He also had to unite the somewhat mildly separated factions of his party and gain Democratic support. He supported Howard Baker for Senate majority leader and selected George Bush's former campaign manager James Baker to be his chief of staff in an effort to gain the confidence of Nixon and Ford-era Republicans He also had to deal with the ultra-conservatives of his party Ronald Rrtgm campaign in La Crowe with Senate candidate Robert Kasten (far Wit) Steve Cunderaon (center) waiti before hit apeech while campaigning in La Croaae Reagan priorities who had opposed the nomination of Bush and thought Reagan's positions were becoming too liberal. As the end of the year approached. Reagan announced his cabinet appointees: Donald Regan. Treasury Depart ment secretary; Caspar Weinberger, Defense Department secretary; Richard William French Smith, attorney general; Malcolm Baldridge. Commerce Department secretary: Richard Schweiker. Health and Human Services Department secretary; Andrew Lewis III. Transportation Department Secretary; Theodore Bell. Education Department secretary.

Housing and Urban Develop ment Department secretary; John Block, Agriculture Department secretary; Jeane Kirkpatrick. U. N. ambassa dor; David Stickman, Office of Management and Budget Director; William Casey. CIA director; and Richard Allen, na tional security adviser. While the Reagan transition team prepared for the next four years, new faces were also becoming familiar with Capitol Hill and its power positions. With Republicans holding control of the Senate for the first time In 26 years, new people were taking control of some key Senate committees: John Tower, a Texas conservative took over as chairman of the Armed Services Committee; Kan san Robert Dole took over the Finance Commission; Charles Percy gained control of the Foreign Relations Committee and South Carolina's Strom Thurmond replaced Edward Kennedy as chairman of the Judiciary Committee. There were also new names: James Abdnor who defeated George McGovern in South Dakota; Steven Symms who defeated Frank Church in Idaho; Paula Hawkins who won in Florida; and Robert Kasten who beat Gaylord Nelson in Wisconsin. Despite a national preoccupation with Iran's release of the 52 hostages on Reagan's Inauguration Day. he still got down to the business of dealing with the economy. Shortly after being sworn in. Reagan ordered a freeze on all federal hiring. Earlier in his 20-mlnute inaugural address. he called for America to begin on an "era of national renewal." "With all the creative energy at our command, let us begin an era of nation- Yellow Ribbons Iran frees hostages ernment growth In U.S. history. Reagan called for a $41 billion reduction In federal spending. $44 billion In income tax cuts and $10 billion in business tax cuts. The Income tax cut entailed a 10 percent across the board cut for each of the next three years. The cut, which he said should take affect July 1. would provide taxpayers with an additional $500 billion, money which he said would expand the "national prosperity." "They will not be inflationary." he said. Cuts In the budgets of several departments. agencies and programs also were called for. Reagan said that only programs for the truly needy went untouched. Only the defense budget, Reagan said, would not see a cut. That budget. in fact, will be increased, he said. "We don't have an option of living with Inflation." Reagan said. "We have an alternative and that Is this program for economic recovery." Several Democratic legislators, however, hinted that Reagan s plan would most likely meet opposition in the Congress. Alexander Haig, meanwhile, was attempting to modify what Reagan called the soft tone of the Carter admlnistra tlon’s relations with the Soviet (Jnion. One early result of Haig's effort was the by Tom Lindner The post-World War II generation had never seen anything like it. Thousands of Americans turned out. sporting yellow ribbons and American flags as the 52 former American hostages returned to the United States after being held by Iranian militants for 444 days. Millions more watched the emotional return on television. an alternative and that is this program for economic recovery." Several Democratic legislators, however, hinted that Reagan's plan would most likely meet opposition in the Congress. Alexander Haig, meanwhile, was attempting to modify what Reagan called the soft tone of the Carter administration's relations with the Soviet Union. One early result of Haig's effort was the creation of an interagency task force to coordinate the U.S. response if Poland were to be invaded by Soviet troops. The United States also terminated aid to Nicaragua because It was believed it had supplied arms to 0 Salvador rebels. Reagan also reaffirmed U.S. support to South Korea. With the hostage situation pretty well settled on the first day of his administration, Reagan was ready to get acquainted with other foreign leaders. Early visitors to the White House were to include Britains' Margaret Thatcher. Spain's Juan Carlos. Jamaica's Edward Seaga and South Korea's Chun Doo Hwan. As for SALT II. Reagan said he would like to renegotiate the treaty so that it would reduce the "destructive nuclear weaponry in the world" as well as "protect fully the critical security requirements of our nation." "Thank God you are home," Presi dent Ronald Reagan said at a White House ceremony Jan. 27. welcoming the freed Americans. In the same breath. Reagan, who had been inaugurated just a week earlier, said, "Let it be understood: There are limits to our patience." He said the U.S. would respond to similar actions in the future with 261Forme ho t«ge Kevin Hermenlnj) of Oak Creek. 21. Mgni an autograph after his release "swift and effective retribution." Bruce La ingen. U.S. charge' d'affaires. called the return "a celebration of freedom." "Never has so small a group owed so much to so many." he said at the White House program. The release provided joy and a sense of frustration for President Carter. He had worked around the clock on the last days of his administration to reach a release agreement hoping that he could fly to West Germany, welcome the hostages and return for the inauguration. That was not to be. however. In what seemed to be yet another jab at Carter, the hostage's plane took off just after Reagan took the oath of office on Jan. 20. It was President Jimmy Carter who had been dealing with the hostage situation since they were taken in November, 1979. It was he who kept the national Christmas tree dark for two holiday seasons. It was he who finally approved the failed rescue attempt and was subjected to criticism from those angry that it failed and those angry that It was even attempted. It was Carter who had postponed campaigning in the 1980 election so that he could be better informed of the hostage situation. And. it was Jimmy Carter, some political observers says, who lost the White House to Reagan because of America s frustration with the hostage situation. It was not Jimmy Carter, however, who had the honor of telling the American people the hostages had been freed. They left Iranian air space during the Reagan administration. "Some 30 minutes ago. the plane bearing our prisoners left Iranian air space, and they're now free of Iran." Reagan said as he made the first official announcement of their release. Carter announced the hostages' flight from Iran when he arrived in Plains. Ga.. later that afternoon. "They are hostages no more ...." he said. "I couldn't be happier." Carter left later that day to welcome the hostages upon their arrival in Weisbaden. West Germany. The Americans were taken hostage by militant students who stormed the American embassy in Teheran demand Ing the release of the former Shah Mo hammed Rera Pahlavi who was undergoing medical treatment In New York City at the time. Originally 63 Amerl cans were held captive, but by the end of the first month. 10 had been released. Richard Queen was sent home in the summer of 1980 because he was suffer ing from multiple sclerosis. The hostages' release came after months of waiting and days of intense speculating about a release. Iran's hos tage negotiator announced on Jan. 18 that an agreement had been reached. Carter announced early the nest day that an agreement had actually been completed, but problems developed later in the day when Iran's negotiator denounced a portion of the pact. Throughout the night and into Jan. 20 Carter administration officials worked In Washington, and Under Secretary of State Warren Christopher, with other state department personnel and Algerian intermediaries, worked in Algiers. Algeria, to solve the dispute. It was finally resolved and Christopher signed the agreement for the United States which led to the hostage release. The days that followed were dominat ed by news of the hostages. Americans saw them arrive in Algiers and Weisba den and prepared for their eventual re turn to the United States. Yellow ribbons became the symbol of the freed Americans and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree" was resurrected from pop music archives to bethe theme song of the arrival. Newspa per an TV ads welcomed the hostages home. When they finally returned on Super Bowl Sunday (Jan. 25) a huge yellow ribbon was decorating the outside of the Superdome in New Orleans. On the route along which the hostages traveled were thousands of people instilled with a sense of patriotism that had not been seen when Korean and Vietnam War veterans and prisoners of war returned. One sign along the way. with the big Philadelphia-Oakland game in mind, read, "U.S.-52. Iran-0." In the days following their release the Joy of their freedom was somewhat overshadowed by stories of torture and abuse. LL Col. David Roder said he and other hostages were beaten. Malcolm Kamp. an embassy economic adviser, said he was held In solitary confine ment. Laingen said a militant had held a pistol to his heed. Marine Sgt James Lopez recalled nights when he felt centl pedes crawling across his face. Marine Sgt. Johnny McKee! Jr. was falsely told that his mother had died. Upon learning of the abuse. Reagan administration and congressional leaders questioned whether the United States should fulfill Its agreement with Teheran. The admin istration. however, announced that it would. The major provision of the hostage release agreement involved the shifting of nearly 58 billion In frozen Iranian as sets into a Bank of England escrow account to be returned to Iran by the Alge rians. Under the agreement's terms. Iran also immediately paid back $3.7 billion to repay its larger loans. It also had to put $1.4 billion in a “security" account to cover other claims for creditors. Iran had originally asked for $24 billion for the hostages' release; what is actually got was $3 billion. Despite the unrestrained joy that was shown with the hostages' return, there was some anger. "These returned hostages get free baseball for life and trips to Tahiti," Ron Kovk, a paralyzed Vietnam veteran told Newsweek, "and all we got was a one-way ticket home to a very difficult situation You can't wd come 52 hostages home like heroes and forget about 9 million Vietnamera veterans. We're not being bitter. We re just feeling left out." Syndicated columnist James J. Kilpatrick disputed assertions that the exhostages were heroes. "Let us cool it." he said. "This has not been a glamorous c ha per in our history, No amount of champagne will make It so." Millions of American seemed to disagree. however, and as Newsweek magazine commented. “An America that had been held vicariously captive with them for 444 days embraced them as heroes anyway, because they were home — and because they were us." Strike threatens Poland; workers demands met by Tom Lindner If Time mogazine acknowledged a first runner-up for Its "Man of the Year" honor. Ronald Reagan would very likely have been followed by the unemployed electrician who led Polish workers in a nationwide revolt, shaking the Communist world. Lech Walesa. 39. scaled the gates of the Lenin Shipyard in Gdansk. Poland In August and began the revolt that has made Solidarity, the Independent trade union which he heads, a powerful force in Polish affairs. Strikes throughout Poland in the latter half of 1980 and into 1981 were asso dated with Walesa and Solidarity. Railroad workers, factory workers, farmers and even students were among the thousands of Poles participating in the revolt. Walesa's and his colleagues' efforts paid off. however. In several situations. The government and the union agreed to working conditions more favorable to the workers and Walesa helped In ousting Communist Party leader Edward Gierek. The labor movement's first victory came Aug. 30 when, after two months of labor unrest had crippled Poland, the government accepted all 21 of the strike committee's demands at the Lenin Ship yard in Gdansk. Among the concessions were the right to strike, the release of all political prisoners, the abolition of government censorship, free access for all religious groups to the mass media and salary Increases. Other worker protests followed with demands for such revolutionary ideas as workless Saturdays. Though the leader of the labor move ment, it was also Walesa who pursued ed the workers to proceed with caution and moderation. "I want democracy," Walesa said in a Newsweek interview. "But it Is impossi ble to say what form this would take. I have only lived in Poland, and therefore I don't know what democracies look like close up." "We don't want to bring down this government or any other government." Walesa said, adding that the reform movement was not "anti-socialist." "What does anti-socialist mean?" he asked. "I would say that those who brought us to this present situation in our country are anti-socialist. We In the unions are the upholders of socialism." Despite such claims Walesa and the Solidarity efforts were seen as grave threats to Soviet Influence and control of the Warsaw Pact nations. The party-controlled press in the Soviet Union. East Germany. Czechoslovakia and other Warsaw bloc nations continually attacked the Solidarity effort. The most dramatic response came when more than 30 Soviet military divisions were sent to Poland s borders and told to be ready to invade on a day's notice. Washington expressed concern of a possible Soviet Invasion, but Charles Percy, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said on his return from a visit to Russia: "I don't think they want to go into Poland. It would be a really desperate, last-resort situation." President Jimmy Carter, meanwhile, warned that "the attitude and future policies of the United States toward the Soviet Union would be directly and very adversely affected by any Soviet use of force in Poland." President Ronald Rea gan's reaction to the Soviet threat was similar. Flu bug thrives in UWEC winter by Vicki Griffith "You name it and you got it. It was really gross." That's how one Eau Claire student described her bout with the Bangkok flu this year. The Bangkok flu was the latest variety of flu this winter, and many students on campus felt its effects. 2 1Bangkok Flu Director of Health Services Dr. Charles Bass said the Bangkok flu is a normal influenza. Flus are named for where they are first Identified. Influenza is caused by a virus which mutates and changes as it travels. The body's immunities are weakened with new strains of the virus, which is why a person can have different flus. The symptoms of the Bangkok flu are similar to a cold, but somewhat worse. Students complained of stuffy noses, high fevers, body aches, headaches, tir- edness and lethargy. The flu lasted about a week to 10 days. Bass said, but many times the tiredness would contin ue for three of four weeks. "At the peak of the Illness, which was about a week after registration, we were seeing approximately 30-40 people a day and that lasted about a week." he said. Since then the number has tapered to a few cases each week. Bass said. There is no actual remedy for the flu. just measures that may help relieve the symptoms. Rest and relaxation help. Grieving world mourns death of a visionary by Cherie Phillips It's nearly impossible to eulogize a man so intricately woven Into the lives of so many people. Oh. sure, there have been countless attempts to capture the world's grief on paper. Endless reams of "John Lennon stories" were printed. But it wasn’t always clear whether these were written by fans who desperately needed to vent their crushing sad ness, or by aspiring writers who hoped to use their "tribute" to propel themselves to fame. But let's not quibble over who loved John Lennon most. Aside from the street vendors ("Get your John Lennon memorial T-shirts, buttons, posters, pennants, pretzels or whatever else you'll pay money fori"), and those record store owners who doubled the price of his albums ... yes. aside from these, there were millions of sincere mourners. Some of them make their way to the Dakota Apartment house, in New York City, where he was killed With them they brought poems so anguished and intense that they seemed to have been drained slowly, painfully from their authors' very hearts. They brought flowers, gardens full of them, to place at the Dakota's main entrance where a memorial shrine had been accumulating. Those who couldn't make the journey to New York gathered in big cities and small towns from America to New Zea land. Small candle flames burned deep into dark nights as groups of people sang the man's songs together, tried to comfort each other through their own tears, or chanted what came to be known as the "slogan" of the mourning period. "All we are saying is give peace a chance." December 8. 17 days before Christ mas ("and so happy Xmas' ), John and Yoko's Double Fantasy album was be ginning to stand on its own. There were favorable magazine interviews and pub lie appearances. And through It all. the message was clear that he was coming out on top Happy at home and happy in his musk. Until, that Is, it was all ended by a delusioned psychopath who wanted to play God. Despite numerous "professional theories” of what the killer's mo tlves were for murdering John Lennon, no one can be sure but the killer him self. And somehow that is no comfort at all When the shock and Initial grief began to subside, anger stepped In to replace It. How to listen to John Lennon's songs and not hate the one who killed him? How to believe the words of love and peace under such a shadow? And how can Sean Lennon, age 5. ever hope to rationalize the senseless way his father was killed? How many times will he hear his father's voice sing ing, "Mama don't go. Daddy come home." and want to scream along Just as angrily as his father did when he recorded it? For those who loved John Lennon, his death opened a wound in their very souls. It brought out unanswerable questions. "There will be an answer." he said. "Let It be." But tell me, where is the answer in this? but many students find them Impossible to cram into their busy schedules. Senior Denise Millard said that when she had It she felt really "burnt out." "I missed work for three days, but made it to classes ... barely." she said. She said she first had a sore throat and then began to feel worse. Her tempera ture stayed at 102 for a few days, she said, and even after the flu was over she had a cold for another week. Millard said she did find one good thing about the flu: she lost 10 pounds. Lennon murdered by Cherie Phillips On December 8 around 10 p m,. John Lennon and his wife. Yoko Ono. were returning home from a recording session. As they walked through the doorway at the Dakota apartment house in New York City, a man called out from behind them. "Mr. Lennon?" When Len non turned around, the man shot him four times with a 38-caliber handgun As the musician lay there wounded, the man who had shot him told a door man. “I just shot John Lennon.” and stood by passively, reading The Catcher in the Rye until Lennon was taken to a hospital and police came to arrest the suspect The suspect's name was Mark David Chapman. He was a 25-yearold security guard from Hawaii, who had been loiter ing for several days around the Dakota. On the day of the shooting, he had asked Lennon to autograph the cover of the singer’s newly released album. On December 9. Chapman stood silent In Manhattan Criminal Court and was charged with second degree murder Legal technicalities Involving New Yorks’ death penalty prevented a charge of first degree murder. Assistant District Attorney Kim Ho-grefe said Chapman had acted in a "cool, calm and rational manner In his premeditated execution of John Lennon." Chapman was sent to Bellvue Hospital for psychiatric observation. He was heavily guarded to prevent a suicide attempt.The Beetle took America by ttorm with then mu ic 20 year 90. Each went on to a ucce tful 0 0 career a welt Success smiles on musicians 'Coming up’ in 1980 by Jody Conner 1980 was a year for the stars of music. Nearly every major act released albums or had hit singles. For some of these acts It was the first In several years. 265Music The year's greatest success and deep est tragedy concerned the late John Lennon. Before his death In December, Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, re leased his first album in five years. "Double Fantasy The album was praised both by critics and record buyers alike. It marked not only Lennon's return to musk but also an acceptance of Ono as a musical partner. Two other ex-Beatles also released albums this year. Paul McCartney re leased "McCartney." his second solo album after many years with Wings. Al though the critics gave it a lukewarm reception, it was popular with the public and spawned the single "Coming Up.' George Harrison's album. "Harrison. didn't fare as well with either critks or public, though the single "Blow Away" did well. But ex-Beatles did not monopolize the charts Bruce Springsteen scored tremendously well with his two-record set "The River." Springsteen made his reputation as a live act. but album has made him the nation's top recording personality. The effect was felt by Eau Claire students who tried to get his St. Paul or Madison concert tickets without success. Bob Seger was another big winner In '80. His album "Against the Wind." carried along by the Springsteenish hit Death toll reaches 21 "Fire Lake.' sold two millions copies before Christmas. Seger sings mostly about the hassles and nostalgia of becoming an aging rocker, yet attracts many of the college-age crowd. The other important albums of '80 are almost too numerous to mention. There were the Cars. "Panorama." Rolling Stones. "Emotional Rescue.' The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. live albums. Barbara Streisand. "Guilty." among oth ers. There were a number of Interesting trends manifested in 1980. One was the resurgence of hard rock, whkh had seemed to be fading away. AC DC three-chorded its way to a platinum album with "Black in Black." REO Speed wagon, a longtime mldwestern favorite, finally received its long overdue national hit when it released "HI Infidelity." But Cheap Trkk continued as the kings of hard rock, releasing both "Dream Po lice" and "All Shook Up.' Another trend was the increased pop ularity of female singers, especially those singing harder rock. Heart, featuring the Wilson sisters, gave us "Greatest Hlts Llve" and the single "Tell it Like It Is." Pat Benatar joined the Super star set and became a top concert draw with her second album. "Crimes of Passion." The single "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" Is fast becoming a bar band anthem. While talented. Benatar's span dex wardrobe and suggestive posing haven't hurt either. Not to be forgotten is the so-called new-wave, now on its third or fourth year of existence. Blondie and Talking Heads, the two new wave groups that initially broke through to popularity, remained popular. Other new wavers followed them in 1980. The Clash caused much fervor with "London Calling." a two record set of politically oriented and craftfully played pop music. Devo. the group who was the delight of the underground elite, surfaced with "Whipplt." It was possibly the most intriguing title of the year. Country musk, or at least country music geared for mass appeal, was also popular. Eddie Rabbit's "Driving My Life Away" was hummed by many would-be-truck drivers. Kenny Rogers crooned a half-dozen hits as popular with the college crowd as with tradition al country fold. Johnny Lee's "Looking For Love" was a huge hit and led the soundtrack of "Urban Cowboy" to a new height of country crossover. So many styles of music did well in 1980 that it is safe to say anything could be a hit. In 1981. polkas or hymns may be making the pop charts. Children’s murders horrify Atlanta by Tom Linder Yusef Bell was a 9-year-old boy running an errand for an elderly neighbor one day in early 1980. Yusef. a bright youngster who attended special classes for gifted students, never returned from the neighborhood grocery store just a few blocks from his home. A few weeks later, Yusef's body was found hidden in an abandoned building. Yusef was one of at least 21 black children who disappeared or were killed In Atlanta. The deaths and disappearances, whkh began in July 1979, terrorized the city throughout 1980 and into 1981 While residents of other urban areas spend leisure hours mowin' lawns and relaxing. Atlanta residents spent their spare time combing their neighborhoods for missing children. Children lived In constant fear of "The Man. ’ The police and volunteer vigilantes enforced a 7 p.m. curfew on children under 15. Some blacks viewed the deaths as a possible resurgence of white racism, but whatever the cause for the deaths, they left their mark on Atlanta children. "He doesn't want to be alone for a moment." said the mother of 12-year old Felipe Prica. She said her son sits on the porch most afternoons instead of playing with his friends as he normally would "Even if he goes to the store in a group, they've all got sticks," she said. "I think it's sad. You want to tell your child not to carry weapons." Children also distrusted people with whom they ordinarily would have been quite friendly. "I tell my son. don't even trust your uncles,' ” said Charles Thorn ton. the father of a 10-year old boy. The school system, meanwhile, encouraged the adult community to be more reas suring to the children. "Our children can't grow up distrusting everybody, said Barbara Whitaker, an assistant superintendent of schools. As the list of deaths grew, black leaders wondered if the investigation might not have been more successful If the victims had been white. Some related the killings to the shooting of Urban League president Vernon Jordan last May. and to other racially-motivated killings. The killings are "a critical issue for the black community." said Dr. Alvin Poussaint. a black psychologist at Har vard Medkal School. "There is a sense of outrage that someone or something has gone mad." Mayor Marnard Jackson and Public Safety Commissioner Lee Brown, both blacks, continued their dedication to solve the crisis, but as of March 1981, an end did not appear to be In sight. "What it takes to solve a murder, we do not have." Brown said. "No eyewitness, physkal evidence or a confession." The Investigation also ran low on funds. Jackson, who some said was obsessed with the case, continually made pleas for donations. In mid-March aAtlanta benefit concert featuring Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. raised more than 1148.000. Additional contributions brought the total from the concert and related events to $200,000. The money was badly needed. When the concert was held. $1 million had already been spent on the investigation and expenses were increasing at a rate of $200,000 a month. The federal government was asked for $13 million in aid. but. as of March, had provided technical assistance only. "Until the debt is paid. I'll never come to Atlanta .. for commercial reasons." Davis said at the concert. "Every time I appear here it will be to give money to the cause." But even the concert was oversha dowed by the fear. Someone claiming to be the killer sent a message to Atlanta's two newspapers before the concert: "Consider ... while everybody's watching Sammy and Frank, who'll be watch- Fleeing Cubans find homes, hostility in their new country by Cindi Pesko How the number one news story of the year, the Cuban Freedom Flotilla, affected people in the United States, in Wisconsin, and even Eau Claire varies in intensity. The exodus of thousands of Cubans was accepted in the United States with emotions ranging from compassion to hostility. Both confusion on the part of govern ment officials and an inability to sucess-fully control and screen the prospective refugees compounded the problems which were to develop Fort McCoy in Sparta. Wis.. along with Florida's Eglin Air Force Base. Fort Chaffee In Ark., and Fort Indiantown Gap. Penn., were selected as resettlement centers for the incoming refugees For this reason. Wisconsin citizens were probably more aware of the magnitude of the Cuban situation than many others in the United States. The Fort McCoy resettlement center provided temporary, well paid jobs for area residents. many college students and for some people who travelled even greater distances. This economic benefit was somewhat diminished as problems within the camp — riots, violence and even the escape of refugees created concern, distrust, and for some, disgust for the situation. The first Cubans entered Fort McCoy on May 29. I960. These 172 men were followed by thousands more men. women and children. In total. 14,360 Cubans were processed at Fort McCoy. Processing involves several extensive Ing the children?" No matter how futile, the investigation continued. Two hundred tips were received each day at headquarters of a task force established to handle the case Neighbors searched, private detectives investigated on their own time, psychics were called in to help, all trying to discover a pattern to the crimes. One of the two girls who were killed had been sexually assaulted. Some of the bodies were dumped haphazardly, while others were carefully placed with arms and legs spread. Yusefs body was found a week after he had died, and his clothes had been washed. Investigators speculated that the killer might be a "religious kook” or a sexual deviant who derives "satisfaction from seeing a child die." The big questions were who was the killer and were there more than one. As the situation developed, police began to agree that the diversity of the cases seemed to Indicate more than one killer. but there was no absolute proof of that. Investigators admitted that the killer could be a police officer, because an officer would be able to approach children without sending them running In fright. Others speculated that the killer might be a teenager who. because of the closeness In age. would be able to gain the children's trust. Many of the victims had been employed at odd jobs to earn spending money, so some believed the killer may have lured the children with offers of work. As the speculation and investigation continued, so did the deaths and dksap pearances. The mood of crisis also continued At the benefit concert. Sinatra summarized America's attitude toward the situation: "I came here to express to the parents of the children brutally murdered my compassion and love. I weep with them and for them. You have my prayers that it should end without further bloodshed."

Remaining refugees became more restless. This restlessness was vented in the form of violence, including murders. On August 13 the government decided that Fort Chaffee would be the permanent resettlement site, whkh meant the Fort McCoy Barracks would not have to be winterized. It was not until the middle of October that the camp was finally cleared out. with only a few unsponsored juveniles Outprocessing was also slow and complicated by incomplete flies, and problems with sponsoring. By mid-July the relative calm that had existed at Fort McCoy was replaced by tense frustration. Many of the Cuban families and children had left to go 7 4 procedures.

Mount St. Helens in Washington State was shaken by an earthquake three miles below the peak. Four minutes later, a second earthquake struck. So began the May 25 eruption of Mount St. Helens, an eruption that left 22 peo pie dead and 55 missing, according to the June 9 issue ot Time. The eruption. 40 miles northeast of Portland. Ore., was the first in the continental United States since 1914. It was the first for Mount St. Helens since 1857, when the area was an uninhabited wilderness. But this time, the eruption did at least $1.5 billion worth of damage. Washington Gov. Dixy Lee Ray estimated, as timber and crops were damaged and roads covered with ash. Scientists said the trapped gases beneath the surface generated an explosion with about 500 times the force of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Within minutes, the top 1.300 feet of the mountain was gone, reducing the 9.677-foot mountain to an ugly flattop. Giant mudslides, formed of melted snow mixed with ash and propelled by heated gases, erupted out of the crater and down the slopes at more than 30 m.p.h.. destroying trees and homes as they went. The mud caused log jams in the Columbia River, and closed the Portland Harbor. The volcano spewed hot ash clouds 12 miles into the sky. Some of the ash settled, but over a wide area. Yakima. Wash., a town of 50,000 located 85 miles east of the volcano, experienced midnight at noon, as the dark ash Tilled the sky. Thick layers of what appeared to be dirty snow covered 5.900 miles of roads. People covered their faces with surgical masks, bandannas and even coffee filters to help them breathe. Mon tana Gov. Thomas Hughes declared an air pollution emergency, as levels of particulate matter in the air reached up to 20 times permissible levels. And geologists say the forecast for the volcano's immediate vicinity Is more of the same: intermittent ash showers for the next 15 to 20 years Scientists say Mount St. Helens spewed about 1.5 cubic miles of debris, or as much ash. mud and molten miner als as Italy's Mount Vesuvius did when it buried Pompeii in 79 A.D. Bruce Nelson and Susan Ruff were two survivors who walked through some of that debris. The two had been camping with four other people that weekend, and had pitched their tents 30 miles from the peak on Saturday. On Sunday morning, they and another camper were beginning chores. Nelson said, when they felt a searing wind. "We were Just cooking breakfast when my buddy said. "Oh my God. the mountain Mewl' ' Nelson said. Ruff said the group then saw a thick yellow and black cloud rushing toward them. "I remember thinking. 'I should take a picture of it, " she said. "Then I thought we’d better hide." The ash and mud that fell on the group buried them. Nelson said, and burned their hands when they dug their way out. He and Ruff found that two campers had been killed and that the two others were badly burned, unable to walk. They moved the Injured campers Into a cave, and set off on a 15-mile trek away from the mountain to find help. It was only after 10 hours of walking through a hot desert of ash that the two were spotted and picked up by a helicopter and could rescue their friends. President Jimmy Carter declared the mountain's vicinity a disaster area. "The moon looks like a golf course compared to what's up there," he told reporters after a helicopter tour of the area. But he predicted area residents may eventually make some money from the disaster. "People will come from all over the world to observe the Impressiveness of the forces of nature." Carter said. "I would say It would be. if you'll excuse the expression, a tourist attraction that would rival the Grand Canyon." High-speed winds rip through area; 1 dead, 16 injured by Peg Carlson Disaster struck "Wisconsin's most beautiful campus" and the city July 15. 1980, as 100 mph winds gusted through the streets of Eau Claire. Forty percent of the trees on campus were downed by the storm and summer classes were cancelled for two days. Aside from roof damage to the Fine Arts Building and the heating plant, university buildings suffered relatively minor damage, said James Christenson, physical plant director. Clean-up and repair totaled approximately $100,000 he said. An Elmwood woman was killed during the storm, when winds overturned her mobile home. On July 15. Luther and Sacred Heart hospitals treated 16 persons with injuries related directly to the storm. Storm damages to public and private property were estimated at $59 million in Eau Claire County. Of that. $2.2 mil- lion worth of damage was done to private property in the city of Eau Claire. "Tree City. U.S.A." lost 2,200 boule vard trees and about 1,000 trees from Its parks and cemeteries. At 9:25 p.m., winds exceeding 100 mph caught city residents off-guard, and a tornado touchdown was sighted north of Eau Claire. Electrical power went out at 9:35 p.m for most city residents and was not restored for one to 10 days, depending on the area and the extent of the damage to power lines. At 11:36 p.m.. City Manager Stephen Atkins declared a state of emergency for Eau Claire, and Police Chief James McFarlane set a dusk curfew. A funnel cloud, sighted southwest of Eau Claire at 11:55 p.m. destroyed several homes near Menard's Old Mill Center. causing the storm's most severe property damage. 2MStorm City crews began clearing main streets the following morning. Residential water usage was limited. The Department of Natural Resources gave the city special permission to dump raw sewage into the Chippewa River whenever necessary because of power shortages. Dry ice was used to keep frozen foods from spoiling. Area merchants made extra freezer space available to residents. The Red Cross. Salvation Army and Eau Claire County provided food for storm victims. On July 25. President Jimmy Carter declared Dunn, Eau Claire. Chippewa and Pierce counties as disaster areas, making storm victims In those counties eligible for low-interest loans and grants. T»« » leU on yards, streets and homes aim Dean resigns after conviction by Renee Boyle A conflict which had seemed rectified more than a year ago came under legal scrutiny last October, culminating in the resignation of Frederick Haug Jr., dean of the UW Eau Claire School of Arts and Sciences. Haug entered a "no contest" plea to two charges of fourth-degree sexual assault in Eau Claire County Circuit Court Oct. 20. 1900. The fourth-degree charge carries a possible $10,000 fine and or nine months in jail Judge Thomas Bar-land granted Haug two years of proba lion, pending three conditions. Haug was to pay the cost of the court action, continue psychological counseling and participate In a chemical dependency evaluation, and undergo any treatment recommended by the evaluation. Haug apologized in court "to the pea pie harmed, to the university and to the community.” Haug's resignation as dean became effective Dec. 23. He remained a tenured faculty member In the speech department. but took an official leave of absence for the remainder of the fall semester. The conflicts came to the attention of the university's affirmative action office in confidential statements of sexual harassment. Two university employees made complaints about separate incidents in 1979. When the statements were made. Sarah Harder, assistant to the chancel lor for affirmative action, said the women were informed of both internal and external options for action. She said they realized the implications for legal action and "their purpose was not to be vindictive; their purpose was to have the behavior stopped." The statements remained confidential until June 1979. when. Harder said, she received another statement concerning Haug. At that time, she said, she approached the three women for permission to bring their statements to the chancellor and vicechancellor for further action. The women chose to confine their action to seeking discipline under Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidelines established In spring I960. When Chancellor Leonard Haas and Vice-Chancellor John Morris approached Haug with the statements, he chose not to dispute the Incidents, but agreed to abide by four conditions required for him to remain dean, Morris said. Harder said the conditions included: to agree that the behavior would not ocur again; to ensure that the women would have no recriminations for reporting the incidents, making it clear they had acted properly in making a statement; to present evidence that he would seek counsel; and to meet with the women, the chancellor or vice chancellor and Harder to apologize for the Incidents and discuss the issues. Harder said there was evidence Haug had lived up to the four points of the agreement and that no complaints concerning activities were received since the spring of 1979. But a police investigation of the incidents began when the police department "learned of it through another investigation totally unrelated to the university." Eau Claire Police Chief James McFarlane said. Police Investigator James O'Dell hadHaug formal discussions with the women "one to three times over a two-month period ' McFarlane said. "They didn't come to us all of a sudden; we came to them." McFarlane explained. According to news reports. O’Dell said the first assault allegedly occurred on Feb. 24. 1979. at a private party, and the second at Brat Kabin, when Haug asked a woman for a ride home. Haug graduated from (JWEC In 1953. In 1965. he returned as an associate professor and became a professor In 1967. Haas appointed Haug dean of the School of Arts and Sciences In 1971. He will return to teach at CJWEC In the speech department In fall of 1981. after attending the University of Minnesota In Minneapolis during spring of 1981. Paige pleas guilty to sexual assault UW-Eau Claire associate speech professor Robert W. Paige. 42, plead guilty on April 23 to two counts of first degree sexual assault involving two boys. Paige has been suspended from his Job and resigned effective May 24. The guilty plea was part of a plea bargain in which the state would not recommend a prison sentence for Paige. Judge Thomas Barland ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Including psychiatric evaluation. Sentencing is scheduled for May 22. The assaults allegedly occurred be tween January 1980 and February 1981. Paige was released on a $5,000 signature bond and said that he was seeking counseling. Olympics: joy and frustration US Boycotts summer by Jim Grzybowski In June 1980. for the first time in the history of the modern Olympic games, the United States did not send a team. When the International Olympic Committee awarded the 1980 Summer Olympics to Moscow, the Soviet Union declared the decision a victory for communism. a justification of the Soviet way of life. After the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in December 1979. President Jimmy Carter called for a U.S. boycott of the Games in Moscow If the Soviet troops were not removed. He cited the brutality of the Soviet invasion as one reason the United States could not attend. He also said attending the Games would be a show of approval of Soviet foreign policy, something he said was against the wishes of the American public. Sixty-two other nations eventually Joined the United States Hockey team, Heiden, by Jim Grzybowski International tensions and domestic frustrations had dampened traditional American optimism. No progress had been made in the hostage negotiations, the Soviet Union was in Afghanistan and the economy was bad. Then the U.S. Olympic hockey team gave the entire nation a lift by defeating the world's best hockey team, the Soviet Union's. It did it by using the old-fashioned work ethic, something many Americans feared had disappeared. The team's 4-3 victory over the seem ingly invincable Soviets in Lake Placid. N.Y., brought out more feelings of nationalism and flag waving since Dec. 7. games in Moscow In the boycott. Including West Gemany, Japan and Canada. Carter had asked for the support of 100 other nations. Vice President Walter Mondale summed up the government's point of view In Sports Illustrated. "History holds its breath.” he said, "for what is at stake Is no less than the future security of the civilized world. I am convinced that the American people do not want their athletes cast as pawns in that tawdry propaganda charade." When it became evident that the Soviets had no intention of withdrawing from Afghanistan, the U.S. Olympic Committee-distraught, dismayed and dutiful — acceded to the inevitable and voted to honor the president's proposed boycott. Reactions among U.S. athletes, many of whom had trained for four years or more, varied. Some expressed dlsap pointment but accepted the decision, saying It was time to put personal considerations aside. Others said the government should not mix athletics and politics. They threatened to go to Moscow and compete for themselves. Carter then threatened punitive action against anyone who competed. No American athlete participated In the Games. With the United States and several other major western nations absent, the Soviet Union and East Germany ran away with an overwhelming majority of the medals. After the Games had ended, Carter labeled the boycott a success. He said it had embarrassed the Soviet Union because several major countries did not show. The Soviet Union, on the other hand, claimed the boycott had little or no effect on the Games. score US winter victories 1941. The victory did not even clinch a medal for the team. It had to defeat a good Finnish team, which It did. 402, in order to win the gold medal. America's first In hockey since 1960 The young team began believing In Itself after tying Sweden, 2-2. and defeating Norway. 5-1. and Czechoslova kia. 7-3. The win over Czechoslovakia, world champions in 1976 and 1978, was labeled preposterous by some hockey experts. The team's conditioning paid its dividends as it outscored Its opponents by a 16-3 margin In third periods. There were other heroes, too. Eric Heiden, a speed skater from Madison, won gold medals in the five speed skating events. In distances ranging from 500 to 10.000 meters. So dominant was Heiden that some of his victories were by nearly a second and a half In a sport where victory is usually achieved by hundredths of seconds. His coach. Diane Holum, said He! den's feats were remarkable because he competed against a specialist in every event. No other skater raced In every event Other U.S. speed skaters who cap- 271Phillies edge Royals, win series by Jim Qrzybowskl Olympics tured medals were Leah Poulos-Mueller. who won two silvers, and Helden's sister. Beth, who got a bronze. In Alpine skiing, American Phil Mahre, who had broken his leg not one year before the games, won a silver medal in the slalom, finishing second to Sweden's Inge mar Stenmark. The games were a disappointment to some, especially Randy Gardner and Tai BabiIonia The two were expected to challenge the Soviet Union's perennial world champions. Irina Rodnina and Aleksander Zaitzev. for the gold medal In pairs figure skating. However, two days before the competition. Gardner reinjured his right thigh muscle, which he had pulled two weeks earlier. He also suffered a pulled groin muscle. On the night of the competition. Gard ner tried to warm up but it was determined that he could not compete. A dream of a gold medal had been shattered. Rodnina and Zaitzev easily won the gold medal. In other figure skating, world champion Linda Fratlanne of the United States, settled for a silver medal, behind an East German woman. WBC Wtftenraight champion Sugar Ray Leonard Leonard, Duran play catch with WBC Title Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran. Those two names became familiar to anyone remotely interested in sports. Leonard and Duran, welterweights (147 pounds or less), fought each other twice in 1980. with each winning once. It was the first year in a while that heavyweight fighters drew less media coverage than another division. Duran, a Panama native, took the World Boxing Council title away from Leonard with a close but unanimous decision on June 20 in Montreal. Four years earlier. Leonard had won a gold medal at the Montreal Olympics. In their rematch on Nov. 25 In New Orleans. Leonard recaptured the title when Duran abruptly gave up with 16 seconds left in the eighth round After the fight. Duran said he was suffering from stomach cramps and nausea and could not continue. Duran's decision to quit was not too popular with promoters or fans. He collected 58 million for the fight, and many fans, especially the 1,297 who paid 51,000 for a ringside seat, felt cheated. Leonard collected 57 million In the heavyweight ranks. Mu-hammed All, 38. attempted to win the title for the fourth time against champ! on Larry Holmes. Age took its toll on All. however, and Holmes had a relatively easy time beating him. For the first time in recent baseball history, no team that won its division the previous year repeated as champion. The Kansas City Royals dethroned the California Angels in the American League West; the New York Yankees replaced the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East, the Houston Astros edged the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West; and the Philadelphia Phillies re placed the Pittsburgh Pirates as the NL East champions. After Kansas City disposed of New York and Philadelphia defeated Houston in the playoffs, the two winners readied themselves for the World Series. It was an exciting series that ended when Phlllle relief ace Tug McGraw struck out Willie Wilson, who represent ed the winning run. in the ninth inning of the sixth game There was plenty of news off the field also. Free agency, in which a player signs with another team after his contract has run out, continued to make headlines. Dave Winfield, who had previously played for the San Diego Padres, signed with the New York Yankees for an estimated 522.2 million over the next 10 years. The average annual salary in baseball in 1980 was 5130.590. George Brett, the Royals' talented All-Star third baseman, nearly became the fust player to hit .400 since Ted Williams did It for Boston in the 1940's. He tapered off slightly at the end of the year and finished at .390. Brett also made news during the World Series, but not for his hitting or fielding. He was forced to take himself out of a game when his hemorrhoids became too painful for him to continue. After a minor operation. Brett was able to play In the rest of the Series. Before one game, when asked about the operation, he replied, "the pain's all behind me now. Tragedy almost struck baseball when Houston pitcher J.R. Richard suffered a near-fatal strok in late July. Richard had complained of a tired arm for about a month. After he collapsed during a practice session, a blood clot was found in his right shoulder, blocking the blood to his brain. Surgery saved his life, and Richard is now practicing with the Astros in spring training.Lakers, Cardinals capture titles by Jim Grzybowski The Los Angeles Lakers 12 107 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in the sixth game of the NBA championship series that brought the title to the Lakers was simply magical. Earvin “Magic'' Johnson replaced an injured Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at center in the game and responded with a 42-point, 15-rebound and seven-assist performance. Johnson so dominated the game that several 76ers couldn't believe what had happened to them. After splitting the first four games, the Lakers beat the 76ers in Philadelphia to grab a 3-2 lead in the series. However, in that game Abdul-Jabbar sprained his ankle and the future looked gloomy for Los Angeles. Laker forward Jamaal Wilkes, who scored 37 points in the final game, said before the game that he thought his team had a 10 to 15 percent chance of winning without Its star center. He said he was already preparing for a seventh game in Los Angeles, which Abdul Jabber would be ready for. Johnson, along with the rest of the Lakers, make sure there was no seventh game. Johnson, a 6-foot-Binch guard from Michigan State with an effervescent smile, received the most valuable player award for the playoffs, an honor many experts thought should have gone to Abdul-Jabbar, who had averaged 33.4 NFL moves toward parity as Oakland wins Super Bowl In 1900, the National Football League moved closer to what Commissioner Pete Rozelle described as parity. This meant that most of the clubs, except for perhaps the hapless New Orleans Saints, had at least an outside chance of making the playoffs. It seemed slightly ironic that the Oakland Raiders emerged as Super Bowl champions. Raider owned Al Davis Is In the midst of a lawsuit against the NFL and its owners. Davis wants to move his team to Los Angeles (the Rams are mov log to Anaheim. Calif.) and the owners and Rozelle do not want him to. Davis, before the Super Bowl, accused Rozelle of scalping tickets, a charge the com missloner vehemently denied. The case is expected to be settled in court later this year. Oakland easily won the Super Bowl, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles. 27-10. They did it with a reclamation project at quarterback in Jim Plunkett, and a defense, led by Ted Hendricks and Lester Hayes, that harassed the Eagle points. 13.6 rebounds and 4.6 blocked shots a game throughout the playoffs before his injury As the 198G8I season drew to a close, five clubs — Los Angeles. Phila delphia. Milwaukee. Boston and Phoe nix — appeared to be the top contenders for the championship. There was plenty of action off the court, too. The Los Angeles Times reported in August that 40 to 75 percent of NBA players use cocaine. The NBA seemed to take the announcement somewhat In stride One ex-player said in Newsweek: "The headlines might just have read that most players get out of bed in the morning. It's true, but it's not news." Two players. Bernard King of the Golden State Warriors, and Eddie Johnson of the Atlanta Hawks, were arrested on posession charges. And one. Terry Furlow. died in a car crash with a trace of cocaine In his blood. In college basketball, the 46th and last team invited to the NCAA tourna Mounton' Eart Campbell lead the NFL In rushing offense all day. Plunkett, a former Heisman trophy winner from Stanford, considered quitting football but Davis talked him out of it. When Dan Pastorini was injured early in the season. Plunkett replaced him at quarterback and led Oakland into the playoffs. Other clubs that made the playoffs were the San Diego Chargers, the Cleveland Browns, the Buffalo Bills, the Houston Oilers, the Dallas Cowboys, the At- ment. advanced to the final game before succumbing to a strong Louisville Cardinal team. The UCLA Bruins, who entered the tournament with a modest 17-9 record, upset top ranked DePaul, 77-71, In Its second game and proceeded to go all the way to the title game, before losing. 5045. The 1980-81 NCAA tournament began with a flurry of upsets. Lightly regarded St. Joseph's (Pa.) defeated De-Paul. ranked first in the country again. 49-48. Oregon State, the nation's sec ond-ranked team, also fell victim. Kansas State beat them. 5048. when Ro lando Blackman hit a baseline jumper as time ran out. Other top 10 teams that lost were Arizona State, to Kansas: Iowa, to Wichita State: Kentucky, to Alabama-Bir-mingham; and UCLA, to Brigham Young. As the tournament progressed. Virginia.

Vince Dooley s Georgia Bulldogs surprised nearly everyone by going undefeated and winning the national championship. Freshman running back Herschel Walker and a stingy defense excelled for Georgia.

I'm not sure about how I (or anyone else on the staff) feel about it. but I have (oh no — I feel a cliche coming on) mixed emotions. I guess I'm relieved, but I am also a little nostalgic — late nights and long days — trips to the fat machines — Peg's bribes of food (my diet will never forgive you. Peg — by the way. when do we get our Swedish meatballs?) • knocking at the window like urchins to get into the building on Sundays — fruitful (often gripeful) meetings and not-so-fruitful meetings — but most of all. just sitting around talking, complaining, yelling, psyching each other up for tests and deadlines, calming and despairing. But I guess we made it. I (and I'm sure that I speak for the entire staff) would like to extend special thanks to Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen. James Taylor. Cat Stevens. Gordon Lightfoot. Simon and Garfunkel and all the others who. along with our stereo (which more often than not hummed along) made the marathon sessions a lot less nerve-wracking. We weren't always such a mellow group. In case any of those people read this. I hope they are touched. But after all of the great "experience" that this book is supposed to give us. I think that it's the people who make it all worthwhile. So to Peg. Lonna. cindy a.e. vissers. Judy. Lori. Cathy. Jim and Mark, all I have to say is.
