9»Busy summer campus
Although as many as 3,244 students attended summer session last year, the campus sometimes seemed ghost-like.
After the rush of students cramming into the library to study for spring finals, McIntyre Library was finally nearly vacant. Students could actually find a spot in the BluGold for quiet conversation. Hallways echoed with stray footsteps of students between classes.
Summer session began June 15 and ran until August 7. About 400 graduate and undergraduate courses were offered.
Yet in spite of the reduced student population, special events and activities continued. UWEC's Summer Theater Company 17 presented four shows: "Man of La Mancha," "The Apple Tree," "Murder at Howard Johnson's" and "The Torch Bearers," all directed by Wil Denson, UWEC speech professor.
An ice cream social coincidentally fell on one of the summer's hottest days. Lines grew as people young
and old waited for their five-cent scoops of ice cream, and then walked away dripping a trail of vanilla or chocolate.
The UWEC summer choir and band gave one concert apiece. For-tepianist Mary Sadovnikoff returned to the campus for three nights of performances. Three Madison musicians, making up the Free Hot Lunch Band, gave a concert of their type of original music, which they label "waha music."
UAC presented three different films each week; a foreign film, an American film and a novelty film of various sorts. These were all free and shown in the Cabin throughout the day.
Summer session students had the option of living in either Putnam or Katharine Thomas halls. Freshmen attending orientation sessions stayed in Towers while they were here.
Hundreds of elementary and junior high school boys and girls attended basketball camps throughout the summer.WELCOME TO
Eauclairification introduces IJWEC
by David Grist
This summer approximately 2,250 students passed through Davies Center to get their first taste of UW-Eau Claire and to complete the orientation process. 1,700 parents, an increase of 200 more than last year, also attended the sessions.
Eauclairification is a summer orientation session geared to introduce students to the services and physical elements of the campus and to make them aware of their academic expectations. Mark Olsen, orientation coordinator, said the goal of the program is not only to introduce the students to the campus, but to also introduce the parents to the campus.
There are 15 two-day sessions from mid-June through the end of July. Although some find it difficult to get away for two or three days in the summer, results of surveys show that most freshmen and parents consider Eauclairification a worthwhile program. This year, 2,500 completed evaluations were received — a good percentage, according to Olsen.
The process begins in the morning with an official welcome by Chancellor Emily Hannah, now a tradition at UWEC. The second step is the English placement test, which is required of all incoming freshmen.
Another major part of orientation, academic advising, begins on the first day. Students report to rooms for advising from faculty in their
chosen major program. Here, students are told about minimum and maximum credits and choices of classes.
During the orientation, students also take a required math placement test and may also take foreign language or choral placement tests.
Also available to students are tours of the campus grounds and the library. McPhee pool is open for swimming and there is summer theater at the Fine Arts Building.
Parents attending the orientation can participate in activities planned especially for them. There is a planetarium show, discussion by administration and faculty, coffee with the chancellor, and "candid campus," an informal discussion with the UWEC students of the 22-mcmbcr orientation staff.
Olsen said he believes UWEC has a model orientation program — one well known in this area. One reason for this fame may be the significant amount of time the chancellor devotes to the program. Olsen also commended his student staff and the faculty advising staff.
The Media Development Center has put together a multimedia presentation which conveys those aspects of UWEC which cannot be explained easily by talking.
"It's the little things that separate a good program from an outstanding one," Olsen said.Freshman is just a state of mind
by Kevin Voit
jeff Buell is a freshman who has a perspective few first year students have. Buell, a business major from St. Paul, has an older brother who attended UWEC while Jeff was in high school. Because he visited his brother in Eau Claire often, Jeff can compare this year's UWEC to that of the past. “The campus has mellowed out; it's not as wild as it used to be," he said.
Buell's observation was confirmed by another freshman, Valerie Krueger. Krueger, a journalism major from Tigerton, Wis., who lives in Towers, said partying isn't the main concern in college. “I expected a super social life and I came here, and, well, the school work is the important part. Parties are only a fifth of it," she said.
Despite Buell's and Krueger's disappointments, they agree with other freshmen that UWEC is a great place to be. “I love the campus," said Cathy Piette, a communicative disorders major from Racine who lives in Oak Ridge Hall. “It's very friendly, especially in the beginning and during orientation," she said. "I've attended private schools all my life — this is a whole new world for me."
Dan Kiedingcr, an MIS major from De Pere, Wis., said he looked around at other universities and thought Eau Claire was one of the best. Kie-dinger, who lives in Horan Hall, said he felt the dorm activities were
"definitely a positive part of dorm life; one disadvantage of being off-campus."
Cathy Welch, a business major from Brookfield, now living in Governors Hall, is just one of many freshmen who is attending UWEC partly because of its good reputation. "I heard more about Eau Claire," she said. "I have some friends who came here and they raved about it," she said.
College, regardless of how pleasant the atmosphere may be, can still remain a problem for some freshmen. "It's nice not to have someone looking over your shoulder," said Sarah Foutnard, a computer science major from Governors. She mentioned, though, that the classes are more difficult than those she had in her hometown high school in Frederic, Wis.
Ruth Stensrud, a special education major from Plymouth, Minn., said school may be a problem for some freshmen if they lack the proper study skills. Piette said some of the difficulties stem from first-year students "getting in with the wrong crowd and being pressured to do things they might not ordinarily do."
Though difficulties do exist, it seems freshmen are quick to realize that UWEC has something special for its students. Perhaps Krueger summed it up best when she said, “People here care."
19Confusion seems to reign above all else during UWEC's registration week. For three long days in the last week of August, the campus seems to become a collection of long lines, each one weaving its way through hallways and around corners until it merges into another line.
People are everywhere, fumbling through appointment cards, ID cards, permit-to-register cards, class cards and fee cards. Every year is the same — things appear confusing and hectic, but the registration process usually passes with few major problems.
Registration for the fall semester of the 1981-82 school year was held from August 25 to 27. An orientation program for junior and senior transfer students was the first activity of the week, while actual registration of seniors began later that opening morning. Registration appointment times for undergraduates were based on the number of credits previously earned by a student while a separate registration session for non-
degree students taking only evening classes was held on the evening of the 25th.
Total enrollment for the fall semester was approximately 10,760 students, said Connie Russell, registration services manager. Despite the large number of students, registration went fairly smoothly, she said.
Russell said lines were shorter than usual in some areas because of encouraging students to come late to their registration appointment times.
Other measures taken to try to lessen the length of lines included splitting up lines for classes that have a large demand, such as classes in the school of business. Television monitors listing closed classes and placed throughout the university gave students a chance to check and correct scheduling conflicts before they went to sign up for them and helped ease crowding in the Arena, Russell said.
Additional help is hired by almost

all of the departments involved in the registration process. Russell said about 75 students and LTEs (limited term employees) are used to help in the registration and scheduling phase.
Even the most carefully planned schedules sometimes result in conflict. Two required classes may be scheduled at exactly the same time, one 75 minute class may overlap into an hour class, or worse yet, a student may have to sign up for that almost unspeakable horror, the 8 o'clock class.
After weaving one's way through all the lines and signing up for the classes he needs and wants, a student's ID is stamped with the official "W-1." He is now an officially enrolled student of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. And it didn't hurt a bit.

A person never realizes how much junk he has accumulated until he has to move it from one place to another. This is especially noticeable in the last few weeks of August, when UWEC students return to the campus after a summer's hiatus.
Whether you're moving into a dorm, an off-campus apartment, or into a house you'll be sharing with seven others, there are certain things that all people who move have in common.
First of all, it's always necessary to make more than one trip. All of a person's most valued possessions cannot possibly fit into the back of a Mustang, Buick Le Sabre, or even a Vi-ton CMC truck, for that matter.
While you always remember to pack and bring along your record albums, posters, hair dryer, and back
issues of Sports Illustrated, it's always easy to leave your permit-to-register card and other school information behind. Also, it never fails that once you're midway between home and Eau Claire, you suddenly remember you've left one box of supplies sitting on top of the kitchen table back home.
A person never realizes what poor physical shape he is in until he has to carry a couch up a steep set of stairs, or has to wrestle with a mattress, trying to fit it through a narrow hallway.
You curse all screen doors that slam shut before you can squeeze an oblong chair through the doorway and grumble loudly every time you trip over a step you didn't see because you were carrying a handful of boxes piled up two feet taller than you arc.
Roommates can always be counted on to bring all the necessities: stereo and speakers, television set, paper plates, popcorn popper and 12-pack, but never depend on them to remember the dishes, pots and pans, dishtowcls and toilet paper.
Finally, after all the lifting, loading and unloading is over, there's a place for everything and everything is in its place, you can sit back in that old, oblong chair, relax, and have a nice, cold beer. And ask yourself, why didn't I take an apartment on the bottom floor?

STUD6NT LIFe AIT THfc CIHIf?e NORMAL SCHOOL. IN s TH€ ST ire OF WISCONSIN
by Cherie Phillips
Begun in 1917, the Periscope was so named to explain its function, to be "a reflector of school activities." Senior Margaret Dittmer was the book's first editor. Working with a 30-member staff (a staff size unheard of for today's Periscope), Dittmer gave the Eau Claire Normal School its first yearbook, a small, paperbound book with a mimeographed cover design. In the opening section that year, she wrote:
"The staff presents to you the Periscope, the infant annual of the Eau Claire Normal School. We make no pretentions for a large annual this year, but we hope that it will serve to make our normal better known to our friends, and to make friends among those who have not yet become acquainted with us. To the students we hope it will serve in years to come as a reminder of their school days here."
With so much public attention focused on World War I and the new military equipment, especially the submarine, a periscope seemed a very timely idea for the title.
Early Periscopes were dedicated to important figures in UWEC history. The first dedication was to "President H.A. Schofield, who, by his enthusiasm and untiring efforts, has given this Normal School a start toward success."
Later dedications were to Laura Sutherland (1930); B.W. Bridgman (1931); and Mr. Schofield, Mr. Brewer and Mr. Bridgman (1936).
The Periscope was originally published by the tau Claire Press Company, which was also publishing what were then the Eau Claire Leader and the Daily Telegram.
With this year's Periscope, we have tried to go full circle back to where the book started. Thus our theme is "Periscope."
Besides being a reflector of school activities, a periscope is also a symbol for looking up ana out at things, at life, at the world. It is a symbol of optimism and achievement.
The book is no longer published locally. It is now sent to Topeka, Kansas, where it is put onto paper by Josten's American Yearbook Company. We no longer mimeograph our cover design, and we no longer bind the book with paper.
As we were constantly saying in our posters this year, the Periscope is your yearbook. We hope we have given you something of what you want.
22Avadon weaves magical wonders
by Barb Ball
II you like tricks, fantasy, illusions, or just plain fun, then the front row of David Ava-don's performance was the pace to be
Advertisements had announced Avadon as "Weaver of Wonders . an evening with one of the country's top sleight-of-hand performers." and how true it was.
Mesmerizing the audience with his feats of magic. Avadon kept the attention of the audience elsewhere while his illusions looked totally spontaneous. He began his performance using ordinary decks of cards.
Throughout his presentation. Avadon's theatrics became more complex and extravagant. His more baffling illusions included the six interlocking rings, inserting knives into an unsuspecting volunteer and escaping from seemingly impossible situations
The illusions involving the six interlocking rings amazed and confused the audience. In this trick Avadon took six rings and magically Juggled them into a chain of steel rings It seemed as if the rings themselves melted into each other.
Another fascinating feature of his act was when Avadon dressed as a monk and preached the holy gospel of acupuncture. This involved using a wooden plate which fit snugly around a reluctant volunteer’s neck and Avadon's thrusting two steel knives through the plate. The audience enjoyed the illusion, but the volunteer seemed a little shaken.
Many think of Houdini when talking about an escape artist, but Avadon proved he was certainly good, too. With his fingers Bp d tightly together, Avadon got out of places that were seemingly impossible. Having students do the taping for him and seeing the obvious swelling and blueness of his fingers, one had to wonder how Avadon did the illusions.
Avadon also fascinated the crowd with acts of levitation, mind reading and swallowing sharp needles.
Promoting his Friday night performance, Avadon dazzled students with his magical expertise by appearing at various locations on campus. Many students were impressed by these short shows and showed up for the scheduled performance. The crowd at the performance showed their appreciation of Avadon by applauding his every move.
The audience marvelled at the effect of Avadon's performance. The relaxed and carefree atmosphere was kept lightly by his wit and humor. He created dialogue based on the comments and reactions of the audience.
David Avadon put a spell on the night and the people that watched his quickness and control over his illusions. Every one that was there will take some little bit of magic with them and Avadon will always be right along. As he magically appeared, let us hope he will one day reappear.

sphere at the French sidewalk cafe addins a certain flavor to the crepes
The 1981 International Folk Fair gave its participants the opportunity to take a whirlwind trip around the world. About 35 countries were represented and they brought a truly international flavor to the festivities, the 15th in what has become an annual event.
The fair was arranged in the form of a bazaar and visitors were invited to move at their own pace, partaking of foods ranging from Chinese egg rolls to Irish desserts. The foods were jourmet's delight, with the atmo-jre ing
and the rollicking sounds of an ac-cordian drawing people to sample the Yugoslavian breads.
For a more oriental flavor, mixed vegetables and rice balls from Japan and Chinese won ton were also available. The aeblcskiber, a pancake-like food from Scandinavia, proved as popular as the more familiar lefse found at the same display.
If they tired of eating, visitors were welcome to have their fortune told by ancient and mysterious ways from the countries of China and Iran, view African native arts and clothes, have their name written in Japanese (a particular favorite of younger visitors), watch several types of folk dancing and view crafts from all countries represented.
For the first time, Slovenska, the Slovenian Club of Willard, Wis., participated in the Folk Fair. The Chippewa Valley Gaelic League served Irish tea and a tempting variety of cakes and other desserts. The Italian American Club of the Eau Claire area demonstrated pasta-making and the craft of making Tombolo, or pillow lace. The fingers flew of the woman making the lace while it was difficult to determine if those making the pasta were enjoying practicing their craft or the red wine they fortified themselves with.
Money collected from sales by the various groups at the fair is allocated to the International Festival budget and activities sponsored by each group. The International Festival Committee sponsored the fair.

PRANCEEller winning "fifth Super Bowl'
by Beth Wagner
After playing in four Super Bowl games, Carl Eller, former defensive end for the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks, is competing in his fifth one — and winning. The 39-year-old is recovering from 20 years of alcohol and drug abuse.
Speaking about "the Fifth Super Bowl" before a sparse crowd at the UWEC Arena on Sept. 24, Eller recalled his experiences with alcohol and a $1,000 a week cocaine habit, as part of Chemical Awareness Week.
"Treatment brought people back into my life," he said. "I feel good about myself."
Typically, he began to drink in high school, he said, but he wasn't introduced to marijuana until he went to the University of Minnesota. Alcohol was a means of building himself up — just as he built himself up before Super Bowl games, the former All-Pro noted. He had a good time, he was the center of attention and there were no problems, he explained but then he began to rationalize his drinking.
"I came into my pro career when drugs weren't a very big part of sports," he said. "Alcohol was OK but I had to keep my pot use a secret."
At this time, he said, he did not associate with team members much and he began to have problems with his marriage.
"I continued my rationalization," he said. "I'm different but there's nothing wrong with me. I wasn't about to admit I couldn't handle my booze. The thing about chemical dependency is denial. I developed the technique as a self-defense mechanism."
The point is that rationalization doesn't change the reality of a situation, he said. He had problems with self-esteem, relationships and business, he said.
"It wasn't that I didn't have the ability to handle all that," he said. "It was that drug use had become my main priority. I had to straighten out the real problem — me."
Midway through his professional career, Eller began using cocaine, he said. He needed his job as a means of personal security and financial support because much of his income was going towards drugs, he said.
Things continued to deteriorate
after his retirement in 1979, Eller said. There was nothing left for him to do but pity himself, he said.
Referring to the four world championship games he played in with the Vikings, Eller noted that the team went back four times and didn't quit. In terms of failure, losing was hard for him to accept, he said.
"But," he continued, "without failing I wouldn't have tried again. It's OK to fail, but it's not OK to stay there. There's another way to go. I can feel good about myself because I tried."
Celebrating six months of sobriety, Eller continues aftercare at St. Mary's Rehabilitation Center in Minneapolis where he went through treatment.

"It's the greatest natural high there is," said Jeff Wingad. balloon pilot.
As part of Counseling Service's Chemical Awareness Week, the one-minute balloon rides were sponsored to promote the week's slogan, "Get high on campus."
The purpose was to show that there is more than one way to get high. Some ways, like free hot air balloon rides, are safer, more healthy and probably more exciting.
Actually, the rides brought to mind Dorothy and Toto, chants of "there's no place like home" and dreamy visions of flying away with a magician.
"Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon? ..."
Students crowded around the balloon's "landing strip" to take pictures of their friends going up, then handed the cameras over when it was their turn.
"I wouldn't have missed it for the world,” said one enthusiastic student.Minicourses provide creative outlet
by Julie Hellerud
The game was called Dungeons and Dragons and was the newest fantasy game on the market. Why was there so much fuss over one game? This is what Cindy Greening, teacher of the minicoursc "Dungeons and Dragons" attempted to tell, or rather show. Greening helped beginners learn the game, teaching them to use their magic powers efficiently to avoid being killed by an angry, ugly troll.
Dungeons and Dragons was only one of several minicourses offered at UWEC during the year, encouraging creative escape for students, faculty, and alumni.
The minicourse program is a nonprofit self-supporting program of the student center activities and program office. The courses are offered each semester and during the summer and their prices are based on course costs and a per-person administrative fee.
Minicourses are offered in almost every field imaginable. Fun and exercise were combined in several courses on dance. Types of dance offered ranged from Social Dancing, which involved techniques for the waltz, fox trot, lindy, swing and cha cha, taught by David Vasquez and Diane Bindl; to Ballet and Modern Dance, taught by Laura McClanahan; to Belly Dancing with Sue Zimpel; to Jazzercise, led by Kathy Lange.
For those who preferred to cat, drink and be merry, several minicourses on food and drink were offered. Paul Waters demonstrated how to mix drinks by using all the proper equipment in his Home Bar-tending course, while Jerry Ehr-meycr taught the terminology and how-to's of buying, judging quality, storing and serving wine in his Introduction to Wine course. Cooking Without Meat was a food minicourse taught by David Schulz. The students in all of these courses mixed, made, and ate samples of their work.
Arts and crafts minicourses included Crocheting, Basketry Coiling and Wrapping, and Lap Frame Loom Weaving. A course on making clothing patterns was demonstrated by Katherine Chua, while a course on black and white photography was taught by Brian Johnson.
Interest in the Orient was high this fall, as courses teaching Japanese and
Chinese language and culture were offered.
Group Guitar, taught by Tom Brill and Understanding Hi Fi, taught by Tom Wieseler were courses aimed at the music lover. Brill instructed his students on how to finger basic chords and basic rhythm strums. Weiseler discussed sound equipment and general maintenance procedures for stereos.
Other minicourses offered included: the Return of the American Comic Book, taught by K.C. Carlson, a confessed comic book connoisseur; Effective Resume Writing, taught by Ed Brown, who has an MBA and 20 years as an employer behind him; and Astrology for Beginners, Cindy Greening.

“I thought any idiot could refute Christianity, and I qualified."
During the first half of October 1981, UWEC students were puzzled by the abundance of the word "Josh" on campus. Josh was on blackboards, buttons, posters, stickers, banners, sidewalks, desk tops and bathroom walls. Some students were beginning to feel that the publicity was a bit much, when the week of October 19 came and a new wave of publicity rolled in. Students were blitzed with fliers, more posters and banners, display cases, mummies, bears and a five-minute film that promoted Josh. But this time they announced who Josh is, what he does and why he was coming to UWEC.
Josh McDowell, an international speaker with degrees in economics, languages and theology, has brought his message to over 500 universities and to nearly 60 countries. He is the author of seven best-selling books, and in 1965, he was winner of the Lyman Strauss Speaker of the Year Award.
McDowell came to UWEC to give two lectures October 23-24: The Great Resurrection Hoax(?) and Maximum Sex.
McDowell gave his personal testimony in his "Hoax" lecture. At Wheaton College, he said, he realized his teachers could teach him how to make a better living, but he wanted to learn how to live a better life. He said he noticed they were Just as frustrated and unhappy as he was. He also noticed, however, a small group of people, especially one cute girl, who seemed to be happy all the time.
Eventually McDowell said he got so jealous he sneered and asked her why she was so happy. "She smiled and said two words — 'Jesus Christ,'" McDowell said. McDowell said that after he had finished laughing, she challenged him to try and prove that Christianity is invalid.
After two years of research he came to the conclusion that Jesus Christ was really who he claimed to be. McDowell, speaking to a crowd of about 2,500, explained why he believes any theory of why the tomb
was empty other than the biblical explanation would need a greater miracle than the resurrection itself.
The maximum sex lecture involved less direct emphasis on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ — McDowell's definition of Christianity — and focused on the personal relationships that lead to love, sex and marriage. McDowell said he believes the greatest problem with relationships today is self-ccntered-ness or the "I want what I want when I want it" attitude.
He said there are three types of love: "I love you if ... " "I love you because of... " "and "I love you . . period." McDowell said the latter group is "a love spelled G-l-V-E," and explained how his acceptance of the free love of God motivated him to join this group.
The crowd's reaction to McDowell seemed overwhelmingly favorable. "It was practical information and entertaining," said one student.
"The humor made it acceptable," remarked another, "he talks more like a neighbor than a lecturer."
"I'm going to leave here a better person," said McDowell. "It's rare when I find students so generous and hospitable, who treat me as a person and not just a speaker," he said of the audience at Saturday night's lecture.Hannah re-emphasizes scholastics
by Deb Bluem
Her face is no longer the new one on campus. Her name is easily recognized in the university community. Her job is a demanding one. Her first year as UWEC chancellor is over.
Mary Emily Hannah became UWEC's fourth chancellor on January 2, 1981, when Leonard Haas retired after 21 years as chief administrator.
With Hannah's inauguration, April 24,1981, she became the first woman to serve as chancellor in the UW system.
It my be easier for a woman than a man to take over as chancellor after 21 years of Haas' dedicated leadership, Hannah said. A 50-year-old man would have been expected to step right into Haas' footsteps, she said. Hannah added that this would be an impossible task for a man or a woman but that people didn't expect her to fit his footsteps because she looks different and talks different.
Because UWEC is a very male-dominated institution, everyone worked a bit harder in making the necessary adjustments during the transition period, Hannah said.
"People were very apprehensive in the beginning because I was a woman," she said. "Some people still are apprehensive. There are lots of suspicions because there are not many women in this job."
When Hannah took over as chancellor, she said her administration would probably differ from the previous one in style rather than educational philosophy. A year later, Hannah's first academic priority still is to continue high quality academic programs, but to limit the number of such programs.
"This implies high quality instruction, the right equipment and a first class library," she said. "It includes all things that make high quality programs."
Hannah's second priority was to accurately assess the future needs of students both to function as leaders of tomorrow and to have an economically productive livelihood. She hopes to balance these two concerns when evaluating, modifying or developing new programs.
As chancellor, one of Hannah's first official acts was to appoint Sara Chapman, who had been her assistant in Minnesota, as a full-time executive assistant. Hannah called her appointment a "revamping" of a former executive position. In the past, the position had gone from a full to a part-time position.
With Hannah's administration came a tendency to see deans as academic leaders rather than just administrators. This is a significant change over the past administration's expectations of deans, Hannah said.
Also with Hannah has come a re-emphasis on scholarly activity among professors. This is characteristic of the times, she said. Teachers in the past have tended to be promoted automatically. Hannah doesn't regard tenure as automatic. Tenure in the future will require more evidence in teaching and scholarly activity, she said.
"This emphasis (on scholarly activity) will only increase," Hannah said. "Fewer tenured positions will be available, making the process more discriminatory."
Hannah also brought with her a tendency to use task forces to study university questions rather than giving the questions directly to the faculty senate. A task force is created only to study a question. It then takes its results suggestions to the faculty senate which makes a final decision. This is a time saving device, Hannah said.
Last spring, Hannah created three new task forces dealing with graduate studies, international studies and student support services. The task forces are made up entirely of faculty members.
Hannah's first year has seen the announcement of resignation by Vice Chancellor John Morris. Morris, after seven years as vice chancellor, announced his resignation in October, 1981, effective June 30,1982. After that time, he will teach in the English department.
"I realize that Dr. Morris has planned this change for several months, but I greatly appreciate his willingness to continue through this first full year of a new administra-lion," Hannah said in an October Spectator article.
Hannah said she regards any issues or questions that come up as being academically related. Although she sees no real major issue of her first year, she said a continual problem exists with the budget. Fewer dollars must accommodate more students, she said.
Two of the most satisfying things in Hannah's first year have been the appointments of Dr. Steve Marquardt as library director and Dr. Lee Grugel as dean of arts and sciences. These appointments have given confidence to the search process, Hannah said.
Some good candidates have been found through the search process, Hannah said.
"It's very good to sec that happen when you're new to a place," she said.
Hannah will work closely with the deans and university administration throughout the next year to set future university priorities and goals. One priority will have to deal with enrollment, she said.
Last year enrollment standards were tightened, Hannah said, because the freshman class came in too large. If the university experiences a decline in students in the future, she said, that decline will be gradual rather than erupt through the control of the freshman class size.
Hannah expects that UWEC will experience a slight enrollment decline over the next few years, but the decline will be a deliberate attempt in controlling who comes to UWEC.
"We'd rather have fewer of the best (students) than a larger mixed number," Hannah said. "UWEC will have to become more selective to do this."
With these and other questions, Hannah begins her second year as chancellor at UWEC.
Dick resigns as dean after 16 years
by Beth Wagner
After 16 years as dean of the School of Graduate Studies, R. Dale Dick is resigning at the end of the 1982 academic year.
Dick, who supports the appointment of a task force to study the organization of the graduate studies program, resigned to prevent personnel complications.
Basically, the task force will determine whether there should be separate deans for each school or a centrally organized graduate school at UWEC.
If he remained as dean, Dick said the task force may have a more difficult decision to make concerning the maintenance or termination of his current position.
"The organization of the program is pretty inconsistent," the dean said.
The graduate studies program includes the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education; while separate deans head the business and nursing schools.
"The commitment of the university has remained limited," he said. "Faculty has not been fully committed. Some are in favor of it and others are not," he said.
As dean, Dick advises students, studies student progress, organizes faculty and develops and terminates programs. In addition, Dick is on the Graduate Council and Graduate Faculty.
Beginning in the fall of 1982, Dick will continue teaching upper level psychology courses.
"I never left teaching," he said. "This job is a three-quarter time assignment. I've been teaching one course a semester a year.
"I had no intention of ever leaving teaching," Dick said. "The reason for a dean is to facilitate the teaching of the faculty. I’m looking forward to the possibilities of full-time teaching," he said.
Prior to coming to Eau Claire, Dick taught at the University of Missouri
as a graduate student and research assistant. Ho completed his undergraduate work at Northwestern University in Illinois. He also taught at the University of Fort Hayes in Kansas, where he was chairman of the department of psychology.
For the remainder of the year, Dick will continue with his responsibilities in teaching and as dean.
"I gained professional satisfaction from this job," the dean said. "In the early years there was considerable growth," he said.
It's a creative process — assisting the faculty, planning programs, developing courses and expressing an interest in teaching, he said.
Much is involved in implementing a new program, Dick said. Once a new program is proposed, it must go through the Graduate Council, the Graduate Faculty, the chancellor, the central administration and the Board of Regents, he said. Then, the program needs to be started, he emphasized.
"There's been some frustration in the limited commitment of the system to the graduate program," he said. "It's also frustrating to see numerous well-qualified students who do not have the financial assistance to complete graduate studies," he said.
As an undergraduate school, Eau Claire provides a high quality of education, Dick said. "I have no reason to expect that an individual would get a better education anywhere else than at this school," he said.
"The institution is doing what it should do," Dick said, commenting on the task force studies. "Decisions are made by the institution in such a way that the process will create a commitment from the faculty as a whole," he said.
The task force will make its recommendations to Chancellor Emily Hannah by Dec. 1, 1981.
Force studies graduate program
by Deb Bluem
Recommendations for changes and additions in the existing UWEC School of Graduate Studies were submitted to Chancellor Emily Hannah Dec. 1,1981, by a task force created to evaluate the current graduate programs.
The study, initiated by Chancellor Hannah in July, was done to aid the chancellor and administrators in graduate studies planning. Whether or not the force's recommendations will be implemented depends on the chancellor's decision to accept all, part or none of them for review by appropriate councils and committees of the university.
To guide its study, the force attempted to follow four main guidelines as set in the charge to the task force. These included reviewing both the Mission statement of the university and the graduate courses currently being offered, considering any changes in the current configurations of these programs, recommending additional programs, and reviewing the current administrative structure of graduate studies.
In its report, the force concentrated on recommending strategies for changes, particularly dealing with university priorities. The force recommended in its report that the university community take a hard look at what it is attempting to do in graduate studies and establish needed priorities.
The task force told the chancellor in its report that it believes that whatever the university does in graduate studies should be built from strong undergraduate programs.
"This means the task force would not recommend an effort by the university to go into any new area of graduate studies for which an undergraduate base did not already exist," said Sara Chapman, chairperson of the task force and executive assistant to the chancellor.
The task force did, however, recommend attention to some graduate level non-traditional inter-disciplinary programs based on areas of academic strength, which included arts administration, museum curatorship and energy science. It also recommended some action on a masters of liberal arts degree.
"We would be ideally suited, we think, at this university, with our emphasis on arts and sciences at the undergraduate level, to think about a masters in liberal arts," Chapman said.
The report, Chapman said, did not contain any recommendations not already grounded in existing university procedures and policies.
Centralization of administration in one broad school was favored in the report which also evaluated the current administrative structure of graduate studies, said Vicki Lord Larson, chairperson of communicative disorders and task force member.
Partial decentralization with no central coordination were also evaluated in the report. The School of Graduate Studies currently offers six degrees in various areas. The schools of Nursing and Business also offer graduate programs.
The task force recommended a particular course of action to Chancellor Hannah in dealing with R. Dale Dick's resignation as dean of the
School of Graduate Studies, effective the end of June. Although Dick was not a task force member, he provided important data for the task force. Chapman said. She also said that Dick's resignation achieved the thing he hoped it would.
"His resignation liberated the committee a bit," she said. "It gave us a completely free horizon to explore."
Research for the report began in July by interviewing the academic deans and university administration. All department chairmen received letters asking for their suggestions. Each group was asked the same questions, dealing with broad policy issues.
The force also based its recommendations on the most recent statements from the Council on Graduate Schools in the United States, which dealt with the administrations of graduate programs. A study done by Daniel Norstedt, associate director of institutional studies was also used to guide the task force. This study reviewed all existing graduate studies programs in universities of comparable size in Wisconsin and the midwest.
Excerts from each of these research processes were included in the report's appendices.
In addition to Chapman and Larson, other members of the task force were William Hannaford, business administration; Ronald Mortaloni, elementary education; and William Pearson, art. Two adjunct members, William Font, biology, and John Pladsiewicz, chemistry, reviewed the draft before it was submitted to the chancellor.Dean sets many goals
by Beth Wagner
"You really don't know what a university is about if you don't know what the students are about ' said Lee Grugcl, new dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.
Leaning back in his chair, behind a desk scattered with papers, Grugcl enthusiastically revealed his ambitions for the school.
"I have short-term goals, but no real long-term ones," the 41-year-old dean said. "Long-term goals grow out of short-term ones. They don't come unless there are shortterm goals first," he said.
"I would like to create a university honors program to provide more challenges and foster a more vital spirit among our outstanding students," he said.
An outstanding student isn't necessarily one with a high grade point average, according to Grugcl. These students are actively involved in their education and are willing to risk failure in order to be creative, he said.
"Students should see themselves as learners, not as people being taught," he said.
Grugcl said he wants to work much more closely with the department chairs as a group. To achieve this, Grugcl said he intends to initiate a faculty symposium which will meet monthly next fall. Encouraging inter-disciplinary work and expanding international studies are two additional goals Grugel mentioned.
"I also want to increase the amount of grants for faculty," he said. "It's going to come in small amounts, but we need some sort of tangible incentive."
At his previous school, Moorhead State University (Minn.), Grugcl was chairman of the history department, director of the university's honors program and coordinator of the masters of liberal arts program.
In 1971, he did post-doctoral studies in England and in 1975-76 he did research at Oxford University while on sabbatical leave.
Grugel, who received his B.A. and M.A. degrees at Ohio State University, obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
"After 12 to 14 years of working in an academic setting, I learned how people think and work most productively," he said.
Grugcl was ready to take on the challenge, he said, after being selected from more than 100 applicants for the dean's position.
"I wish I had more time to spend with students and faculty," Grugel said. "The paperwork is very time consuming, but I've got a superb staff," he said.
As Grugel spoke, he looked at ease in his beige suit and dark tie. His carpeted office, lined with shelves containing books ranging from Marxism to Enthusiasm to Catch-22, surrounded this casual man who smiled frequently.
Interrupted by a phone call at one point, Grugel talked calmly, saying little more than "Hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm." After the 10-minute conversation, he reflected.
"I deal with these situations three or four times a day," he said. "Department heads call me with a new idea for their programs. Money is limited, however. They have to decide where to spend it."
"I want the faculty to know I'm open to new ideas about curriculum development or scholarly activities," he said. "My role as a facilitator is to help ideas become real. I want to encourage rather than discourage," he said.
"I'd like to be able to see students more often than I do," Grugel said. "I like being part of a change; it's healthy."UWEC motto tough to uphold
by Lori McNcefy
Pick up a UWEC pamphlet or handbook and somewhere on it you're sure to find the words "University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Excellence."
Excellence is the university's motto. Its birth can be traced back to Leonard Haas' inauguration as chancellor on May 25, 1960. In his inauguration speech, Haas stressed the importance of striving for excellence. He said, "The specific power to predict and control must be matched by discrimination in judgment and wisdom in decision. Above all, there must be a striving for excellence in every human activity — excellence belongs to the whole community and all members have a responsibility for its nurture."
Haas said the striving for excellence has become a way of thinking among UWEC administrators. In the past this has meant rejecting programs that can't be done with excellence.
For example, an occupational therapy program was rejected in 1971. Because the clinical facilities couldn't be made available, the program couldn't have been "done with excellence," Haas said.
A social work master's degree has also been rejected because adequate funds aren't available.
On the other hand, the nursing program was accredited the first
year it started. It became the first baccalaureate degree program in nursing available in northwestern Wisconsin.
Chancellor Emily Hannah said she believes the UWEC motto is important because it serves an internal purpose on our campus. "It's a daily reminder that excellence is what we strive toward," she said. Haas also said that although all of us don't achieve excellence, we all share from having been part of an institution that strives for excellence.
The major area UWEC prides itself in is its excellent teaching staff, said Hannah. She said the university's accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools was exceptional in that every degree program that has an accreditor has been accredited by it.
As an incentive for good teaching, the board of regents established the Excellence in Teaching Award. It is presented every year to a teacher voted on by alumni students.
Hannah said students at UWEC can expect first rate faculty and teachers. This doesn't mean the teachers "pat themselves on the back," she said, but that they are continually working to better themselves and their teaching methods.
Hannah said she believes UWEC actually has two mottos. One is excellence, and the other is "an envi-
ronment for learning," she said.
She mentioned several features of the campus that help students to learn. The dorms with trained resident assistants help students set standards to live by, she said. Computers are available to students at all times at the Academic Computing Center. The TV studio in Towers offers an opportunity for real work experience.
Hannah said ensuring a good learning environment is a standard for administrators while deciding on new rules or procedures such as 24-hour visitation or beer on campus.
Administrators ask themselves, "would this enhance the learning environment or detract from it?" If it won't detract from the learning environment, Hannah said, we'll do it.
The school medallion, the seal of excellence, has served to reinforce the school motto since it was designed in 1965.
Kenneth Campbell, art history professor, designed the medallion. He drew the council oak in the center and the lamp of learning underneath, and hand-lettered the word "excellence."
The burning lamp symbolizes the unending process of learning. The council oak, a tree on the south lawn of lower campus, symbolizes the strong foundation of a good education.Nursing program
by David Crist
Aftr almost five years of research, planning and consideration, UWEC now has a Master of Science in Nursing program.
Following approval by the UW System Board of Regents in the summer of 1980, Barbara Haag was ap-
Bointed director of the program by ean of the School of Nursing, Susan Van Ort. Prior to Haag's appointment, Norma Briggs served as interim director.
UWEC is the fourth UW System school with both baccalaureate and master's degree programs in nursing. UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee and UW-Oshkosh are the others.
The specific aims of the schools are different. At UWEC there are two tracks available to participants, Haag said. Students can specialize in clinician nursing or nursing education.
UWEC is different from other schools with the clinician nursing program because it deals with adult health, not pediatrics, Haag said.
The nursing education program is important because there is a significant shortage of nursing instructors with master's degrees.
Full-time faculty for the new MSN degree program include Haag, Briggs and Nancy Freeman. Part-time faculty members are Joan Steele and Linda Merrill. Other faculty nursing members will teach when needed.
"I believe we have a very good program—a very sound curriculum," Haag said.
The new degree program curricu-include graduate program
lum will include classes in advanced nursing theory and practice, advanced physiology and research methodology.
"Research is a thread throughout the curriculum in the master's program," Haag explained.
Students will also attend classes in other schools within the university, such as business, math and education.
To be accepted, applicants must have a baccalaureate degree in nursing from a school accredited by the National School of Nursing. UWEC is accredited. Nurses must also be legally registered. Twelve students nave registered at UWEC for the MSN degrees.
"I want to see us develop a very good program," Haag said, "one that meets the needs of nursing, primarily within the state of Wisconsin."
Haag said the program objectives and curriculum is geared to meet changing health needs.
The program's structure depends upon "what happens in the nursing field and what the health needs are, she said.
J9No-Doz and coffee-finals
by Jennifer Weich
Students work hard all semester attending class, listening to lectures, completing assignments and taking exams. After all this, is it fair to expect these same students to take FINALS?
The mood around campus during finals gets tense and tight. That fellow student who usually greets all with a smile and a sunny hello is crabby and irritable. Nobody has the time to relax. Nobody has the time to stop and chat with friends, guilt
feelings abound if every minute isn't spent studying.
To many students, the grade for the entire course may be made better or worse with the results of this last test. Of course there are those few who fail to take a course seriously until this last test and decide their life has no real purpose if they can't pull at least a passing grade out of the last 24 hours of the semester. Beware of meeting these few; they are usually recognized by their glassy
eyes, hoarse voice and shaking hands.
Except for the lucky people who are taking seven credits (half of which are Phy Ed), finals seem to come one after another with no time in between to unwind. On the other hand, there arc those students who feel the unwinding is the most important part of finals; they are found down the Street any time of the day.
For the student who plans some serious studying, No-Doz, aspirin,
any soft drink containing caffeine and candy bars and chips are considered indispensable.
Once the student stocks up and is motivated, it's time to head for the library. Ignore the signs that say "No food or drink in the library," of course they don't mean you. It might be difficult to find an empty spot in McIntyre; during finals week students guard their spot in the library as though they were animals guarding their young. The air is thick with pressure and the silence is only broken by an occasional snore or crunch as someone breaks into the
Now the concentration part enters the picture. The student must soak in all the knowledge contained in his lecture notes while simultaneously reading those 395 pages he kept meaning to get to all semester.
After studying for a couple of hours the eyes begin to hurt and often look like a road map. Headaches set in and cotton mouth attacks (time to pop open a can of that eyeopening liquid caffeine).
Eyelids get heavier and harder to keep open. Time to put the head down and catch a few z's. Panic sets
in when the bell rings telling everyone the library closes in 15 minutes. Not nearly enough studying was done.
A difficult decision often faced by UWEC students is whether to spend an all nighter with the books or get some sleep in order to feel like a human being the next morning. Sometimes a compromise is struck and the books are put aside for some shut-eye just as the sun is rising in the east.
The alarm goes off in what seems like minutes later. Thank the Lord for snooze alarms. Usually they mean
more snooze than alarms.
Those extra minutes of sleep are refreshing, but what really gets one going in the morning is the realization that it is only a half hour to exam time. So much for last minute studying.
The student rushes to get to his classroom, breathless but on time. The professor hands out the exam and paranoia sets in. He never talked about this! This wasn't in the book.
Probably the best way to get through final exams is to think of them the way the Christians must
have felt about the lion den in Rome. It will all be over in an hour or
This process is repeated until all finals are over and UWEC students are set free. At least until next semester. Actually until the end of the next semester. That's all anyone has to take seriously, isn't it? After all, isn't the fine line between failing and passing a class the last exam? It isn't?
Oh, well ...
Exam.5'Let's talk about
it . . .
by Deb Bluem
Talk is cheap.
This English proverb suggests that words must be backed up with action to mean anything. At UWEC Counseling, talk is the first step to action.
Let's talk about it ... has become a slogan for the UWEC Counseling Center. The Center, receptive to walk-ins or appointments, assists students in overcoming problems which may interfere with educational development. The staff attempts to help students with problems involving vocational planning, educational difficulties or personal adjustment.
About 2,000 UWEC students were served last year by the Counseling Center, Dr. R. Kent Garrison, counseling director, said. Usage has gone up from about 10% of the student population in the 1%0s to about 20% now, he said.
The whole concept of mental health is changing, he
"People are easing up on the 'shrink' image," he said. "You're no longer looked down upon for seeking help."
Garrison feels that the Center is serving a maximum number of students for the size of the staff. Because of budget cuts, one counselor position was eliminated last year, he said. Programs will have to be cut with any additional budget cuts, he added.
The Center, in addition to counseling, provides consultation with faculty and staff, makes necessary referrals, administers examinations for graduate schools, gives credit by examination (CLEP) testing and offers many encounter, growth and self-help programs.
Until about three years ago, the Center served only UWEC students. Now, through the Employee Assistance Program, any UWEC employee may use Counseling services.
In addition to six trained counselors psychologists, the Center offers paraprofessional counseling. Supervised students, working under the counselors, provide counseling services to other students. Some students are just more comfortable talking a problem over with a peer.
Dr R. Kent Garrison, Director of Counseling
Dr. M. loan no Hugo, Associate Director of Counseling
Dr. Richard K. Boyum, Counseling PsychologistGarrison said.
Many of the problems students or UWEC employees encounter are related to stress. Garrison said. Thus, much of the counseling is geared to understanding and dealing with different kinds of stress. Depending on the problem, a person may receive help by just talking the problem over.
Garrison fits the main problems the Center deals with into four general categories. First are the self concept or "how do I feel about me" problems. Second come the interpersonal problems such as roommate or parent problems and relationship problems. Also included in this category are personal-social problems such as "who am I" or "how do I act socially."
A third problem area is career goals and planning. The last category, according to Garrison, is a broad personal problem catageory which includes such things as "why do I overeat" or "how can I quit smoking."
A growing problem is chemical and drug abuse. Garrison said. Wisconsin seem to have a general cultural expectation that people rr t drink, he said.
"I like to think that we (the Counseling Center) have made an impact with our Che nical Awareness Week," he said. "People need to know."
The Counseling Center has sponsored Chemical Awareness Week for two years.
Although the UWEC Counseling Center has been accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services the past 10 years, membership was dropped this year because of the increased membership fees. Under the accreditation, UWEC had to meet or excede set counseling standards, which included service to students, training programs, qualifications of staff, testing programs, referral procedures, physical facilities and others.
Garrison said he thinks the Center can maintain the standards set in the past without the accreditation rating. An alternative to the membership may just be an outside evaluation of the Center every few years, he said.

by David Grist
Nadine St. Louis' office reminds one of the insides of a small boy's pocket. It contains many things of personal value; an accumulation acquired through great effort — each item revealing a facet of character.
St. Louis, an English instructor at UW-Eau Claire since 1969, said, "I guess I'm sort of a packrat. I hate to throw things away.'
In English, St. Louis' specific interests are in 17th century literature, but her office reveals an intense interest in science fiction.
"Science fiction tends to bridge the gap between the sciences and the humanities," she explained.
St. Louis is also supportive of international education.
"If you don't know the language, you don't know the thought pro-
cesses," she said about international relations. She has basic knowledge in French, Spanish and Swedish, and Italian, of which she has "a nodding aquaintance."
"I guess you could say I'm sort of an intellectual packrat, too."
She has become a dedicated runner which she feels gives her a chance to be athletic, without having to depend on others as in a team situation. St. Louis serves as the voluntary "advisor" for women joggers in the English department.
Before starting work at UWEC, St. Louis was a circuit court clerk in her home state of Oregon, but eventually returned to school.
"I was one of those people who quit school forever, every two years."
Devoted to the piano
by David Grist
Penelope Cecchini arrives at her office at 6:45 a.m. each school day to begin practicing on one of the two pianos in her office.
Cecchini, who has been studying the piano since age five, started teaching at UWEC in 1966.
"My intention is to train students so they will be able to function professionally when they finish their four years here."
She feels that principles learned on the keyboard are not restricted to that instrument alone but can be applied throughout the realm of music.
"I like to sing a lot with my students," she said.
One of Cecchini's objectives is to see "that the student always feels that he is working at his capacity."
There is an omnipresent feeling of culture in the office which is dominated by two glossy, black grand pianos fitted tightly into the room. Upon the Baldwin are several figurines of famous performers and a bust of Chopin made by Cecchini's husband. Conscientiously arranged photographs show the successes of
her colleagues and former students.
Cecchini grew up on a farm in Indiana about five miles from Atlanta which had a population of approximately 600 "and dwindling," she said.
After completing undergraduate studies at Butler University in Indianapolis, she chose to continue her education at Michigan State because of a particular professor whose work there she admired.
Cecchini has an all-encompassing goal which is a continual striving to be better in every way. "My happiness depends upon how I get along with myself," she said.
Cecchini has learned to understand that all students arc not as devoted as she. She no longer takes it as a personal insult when a student comes to class ill-prepared or is tardy.
"One of the things people seem not to want their money's worth in is education," she said.
It is gratifying to see "that a student fully understands and to see that a student is beginning to take pride in the product."What make a teacher good? Why do student prefer some teachers over others? And on what criteria are these judgements based?
What the Periscope has attempted to do on the preceeding page and the next three pages is given a brief profile of ten UWEC instructors, randomly chosen. The profile serves a dual purpose. First it outlines each instructor's personal "philosophy of teaching," and second, it give the teacher a little more recognition than he or she generally receives.
Learning to speak
by Lori McNeely
"I enjoy seeing students come alive about learning," said Kathy Wencll, speech teacher at UWEC. Wenell teaches introduction classes in public speaking and interpersonal communications.
Wencll said a major goal in her public speaking class is to build self confidence among the students. Along with knowledge of the principles of public speaking, belief in yourself is equally important, she said.
In her interpersonal communications class, Wenell said, she urges students to become more aware of who they are, so they can become better communicators, as well as better people.
"We never become perfect communicators," Wenell said, "but we can continually work to improve ourselves." She said she tells her students not to be content with where they're at, but to set more goals for themselves each time they reach a plateau.
Self-growth should be the most important reason for learning, Wenell said. "I want students to learn for learning's sake," she said.
by Lori McNeely
"The best teachers are those who have acquired a broad background of knowledge," said Dr. Paul Nagel, elementary education professor.
Before an elementary education major is ready to teach, a good foundation in the general education courses is very important, Nagel said. He warns students against "taking the easy way out" and avoiding essential courses.
Freshmen should keep in close contact with their advisors to make sure they are choosing the classes that will be most beneficial to them once they start teaching. Underclassman courses should be designed to fit the student's needs, interests and minor requirements.
After the elementary education major has acquired a fairly broad general education background, he is given the opportunity to teach in a clinical setting. This is done in the principles and practices course which is taken each semester of the junior year. In this course, Nagel teaches his students methods of teaching and how to plan lessons. Then in the seventh and eighth week of the semester, the students are photographed with video camera while teaching, and the film is played back and evaluated.
Nagel said the elementary education curriculum for the junior year is designed so the students will have the chance to plan lessons and teach each of the general courses — math, science, social studies, reading and language arts.
More practical experience comes during the senior year, when elementary education majors teach one whole semester.
Nagel stressed that along with appropriate general education background, also vital to elementary education majors are the teaching skills, methodologies and understanding of how children learn and grow.
"Without the latter," Nagel said.
"a knowledgeable person can be ineffective as a teacher."
4tMotivation a challenge to Denio
by David Grist
Allen Denio, a professor in the chemistry department, considers motivating his students his biggest challenge.
"Half the battle is getting the student motivated and stimulated," he said. Denio said he thinks that to be effective, a professor must motivate his students.
Denio started teaching at UWEC in 1964 after working for DuPont at their headquarters in Wilmington, Del. He worked there as a researcher, but became disenchanted with the type of work he was doing.
"I said to myself, 'does society need a better seat cushion?'"
Denio said that chemistry graduates can get better pay and benefits in industrial chemistry, but this lacks the feeling of accomplishment gained from being a teacher.
"One of the big rewards of this profession is when you see your students succeed," he said.
In addition to teaching at UWEC, Denio interned for a year at UW-Madison and the University of Delaware. He also taught at UW-Milwau-
kee last summer.
Besides teaching, Denio has many other projects going. He is negotiating with Macmillan Publishing Co., Inc. to get a revision of a Physical Chemistry book published. He helped write the revision with one of the book's former authors.
In cooperation with Richard Joslin, an art professor, Denio is working on a text explaining the chemical reactions in the pottery glazing process. He Is also compiling another textbook, dealing with the chemical aspects of art, with Stephen Katrosits, an art professor.
Denio said he has an interest in the arts and humanities. "A scientist really needs to have these interests," he said.
Denio calls himself "the radical extremist of the fourth floor of the science hall," partly because he believes in being politically active and expressing his views openly.
He is also a dedicated runner. He has run six marathons—three of them this year. His goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
49Variety in class relevant to life
by Lori McNeely
Pat Rosenbrook, social work teacher and counselor at UWEC, said she supports the arts and sciences philosophy toward education. She said she believes college students should be exposed to a wide variety of knowledge and experiences.
The wide variety of experiences in the college environment will help students appreciate and cope with the variety of life, she said.
Rosenbrook said she feels variety in the classroom is also essential to the learning process. Her goal in the classroom is "to expose students to as many ways and ideas of evaluating the world as possible," she said. She said she does this in part by bringing in examples from her clinical practice, showing films and having guest speakers. She also encourages class discussion, asking questions and interacting among the students.
"I have to demonstrate the skills I talk about," Rosenbrook said. "It's important for students to be able to tie in what they're learning with its relevance to their professional and personal development."
by Lori McNeely
Dr. William Reece, psychology professor at UWEC, believes students learn best by doing. He applies this philosophy in his human development psychology class by assigning a semester project.
"Doing the project may be as valuable an experience as learning in the classroom," Reece said.
Throughout the semester, students are required to observe and record some phase of human development. At the end of the semester, they must turn in a written report describing the subjects they observed, the procedure they used, and the results of their study. In the past, students have recorded the development of children's drawing ability. Others have have interviewed nursing home patients, asking them to remember significant phases of their life. The purpose of such projects, said Reece, is to help students understand how people develop.
The project is especially helpful to
students who will someday have jobs dealing with developmental disabled irregularities, Reece said. "It gives students a framework to help recognize difficulties and irregularities in human development," he said.
Reece said the project also supplies the student with factual information about how people can devel-
op differently, yet adequately.
Students majoring in nursing, communicative disorders, music or social work are most likely to benefit from a human developmental psychology class. These students are able to relate the class, as well as the project, to their profession, Reece said, because their jobs will involve working with people.Specializing in snails
by David Grist
lean Crowe is a professor on the agar-smelling third floor of Phillips science hall. Specializing in invertebrates, particularity snails, she tries to show students "what a marvelous machine the body is."
"It's kind of an 'oh wow' feeling," she said.
Born and raised in Mansfield, Ohio, "a town about the size of Eau Claire," Crowe started teaching at UWEC in 1964 part-time and one year later became a full-time instructor.
Crowe said that over the years, she has noticed students in the biology department becoming more competitive. "I think there is a lot more competition for grades because it's harder to get into the professional schools," she said.
"I hate to see them working just
for grades," she said. Crowe said she would like to see students working more for "accomplishment and a sense of achievement."
Before working at UWEC, Crowe taught high school and junior high school.
"There is a greater need for a concerned teacher in the junior high school because that's where you get the students stimulated," she said.
A big difference between the college and secondary school teaching is the amount of time you spend being a police officer in junior and senior high school.
Crowe graduated with a music minor and now serves as organist at Lake Street Methodist in Eau Claire. This she calls her "relaxation." She also sings with the UWEC Oratorio.
Basic skills are vital
by Beth Wagner
"Each class has a different challenge for me," adjunct physical education instructor Steve Carson said, as he comfortably leaned back in his office chair.
Carson, teaching three fall semester activity courses—golf, jogging, and skiing—emphasized the importance of students learning more than just from his teaching.
"I want to make sure they get those basic skills and have some degree of success," the former Texan said. "I want them to attain a certain level of confidence. I expect two things of students: that they have fun in a relaxed atmosphere and that they continue with the activity, inproving on their skills, once the class ends.
"We usually begin at a very basic level and progress as the majority of the class does. Self-motivation is a great deal of it. To keep things inter-
esting, I introduce something new each time."
Most of Carson's grading involves subjective evaluation of skills and some objective written tests, he said.
"Students usually come into the this class with a limited ability or knowledge about the skill," the instructor said. "If a person really tries to improve on his skills and shows up for class, I won't fail him."
During two hours of class time, 20-JO minutes are spent on lecture and discussion, while the rest of the period involves skill development, Car-son said.
Clad in a Blugold sweat jacket and pants, Carson said his work day usually begins at 6:30 a.m. and lasts for 12-to-13 hours. In addition to teaching, he is UWEC's defensive coordinator for the football team and head baseball coach.Band offers 'on-the-field' training
by Warren Bowe
The 1981 Blugold Marching Band performed four limes this year at home football games.
Each performance featured material different from that of previous shows, including new music and marching routines. The band practiced its shows three to four hours a week, rehearsing an additional three hours on the morning of a home game.
The four field shows were conceived, designed, plotted and rehearsed by crews of five to six students. The students. Instrumental Music Education majors, are required to participate in this planning aspect of marching band as a preparation for future teaching careers.
Donald George, director of university bands for 14 years, said participation in marching band provides good practical experience for the music education major. Without it, many students would be unequipped to handle a marching band at their first job, George said.
George said any activity that is part of a school program must have an educational purpose, and the marching band serves in this capacity as a learning tool for Music Education majors.
"I've learned how to work with a group and how to instruct in a surrounding other than a classroom," said Nancy Retzer, a member of the crew that planned the Homecoming show.
"We cannot, however, lose sight of the entertainment factor, because that is the only side of the band that the audience sees," George said.
Educational and entertainment factors aside, George said being a member of the band also provides an opportunity for students to serve the university.
120 musicians, a drum major, a twirler and the pom pon squad perform at each show.
s)Freshmen learn the hard way
by Kathy Kistner
"This is it, kid, you're on your way." I started walking across the footbridge, telling the queasy feeling in my stomach to go away. "Act like the rest of them, or they're going to know," I told myself. Straightening my back, I slung my blue backpack casually across my shoulder like everyone clse's was. "Good job. You're like the rest of them. They can't tell." My temporary feeling of security was shot down when a bicycle whizzed by, only inches away from me. "Watch out, you idiot," I muttered. "It's jerks like you that think you own the place!"
Struggling to regain composure, I nervously looked around to sec if anyone had seen my "near-death." It was nice to see everyone was minding his own business. Not wanting to obstruct the flow of traffic, I kept pace with the others. I reassured myself that they couldn't tell I was a ... ... "Bike lane only!" I looked around. "No wonder everyone else is walking on the other side of the footbridge. You dummyl Now they're sure to know you're a freshman. They're probably poking each
other and laughing at you. The guy on the bike is probably amazed at your ignorance. He knows what's wrong with you (freshman)."
Red in the face, I quickly changed lanes and made my way off the bridge and toward Schneider Hall. Once there, I found the stairway and made my way to second floor. It took five minutes to find my classroom because I just had to go up the wrong set of stairs.
First impressions of college life are scary. First impressions of new freshmen arc probably hilarious. Freshmen become the butt of jokes. We are shiny-nosed, ignorant and enthusiastic, and worst of all, totally unaware of what's going on.
A student told me a story about some upper-campus freshmen who were complaining about how bumpy and uncomfortable their matresses were. When some upperclassmen heard their lamenting, they exclaimed, "Well, haven't you heard about the mattress exchange?" (Of course they hadn't; there isn't one.) Picture a group of gullible little freshmen and their rotten mattressesabout the traumas of UWEC life
coming down the hill, anxious to get first pick at the "mattress exchange." At least they got their exercise for the day.
For first semester freshmen, the idea of coming to a new, different school and starting all over again is scary. It is a new community of neighbors.
When asked "what do you think of college life?" UWEC freshmen responded:
— I like the dorms. You meet people from all over. Everybody sort of helps everyone else out.
— I heard about all the studying you had to do, but I wasn't prepared for the amount I got. I never realized how much it was until it hit me in the face.
— I don't have as much free time as I'd like.
— My roommate's a jerk.
— Sometimes you feel a need for privacy, but you can't get it, especially living in the dorms.
— I really enjoy college life but I don't have enough time to take advantage of all the good programs they offer.
— At first I hated it, but now that I've patterned myself. I'm beginning to like it.
— I can't figure that stupid library out.
— I like meeting all the different people here, but sometimes they overwhelm you and you want to run and hide in a corner.
It's the first day that is more fearful because we've left all our hometown friends and have come to learn in a totally new atmosphere, not knowing quite what to expect.
I found myself absorbing any information about the university that I could get my hands on before I started. Just reading the "Student Services and Standards" handbook is enough to blow the mind of any freshman. One of my favorite passages is found under UWS 18.06 (2): "Prohibited Acts: No person may remove any shrubs, vegetation, wood, timber, rocks, stone, earth, signs, fences, or other materials from university lands, unless authorized by the chief administrative officer." I make sure I wipe the sand off my shoes before I cross Water Street.
It is possible to tell approximately how long a student has been going to the university by walking behind him. The longer he's been here, the more people he knows. "Hi, Sue ... Hi, Bob ... Hello, Joe ... Hi, Mary." And sooner or later you'll hear, "How's it going?" What "if" is I haven't figured out yet. I'd sure like to know. "It" must be interesting.
Getting away and adopting a new lifestyle becomes fun and worthwhile. Students learn how to do their own laundry (they might have blue underwear for a while, but no one else will know), and they learn the art of cleaning (or not cleaning) their rooms. (Rooms are only cleaned when absolutely necessary — Christmas and moving-out day.)
Freshmen learn that college is all in all a good experience. Still, I can picture myself already, next year as a sophomore, sitting in Davies when a young, energetic student walks by and all his books fall out of the un-zippered backpack he has slung over his shoulder. I'll nudge the person sitting next to me and say, "Look at that guy. He must be a freshman."5

'60s redone as '80s
by Cherie Phillips
Okay, everybody sing along. "You say you want a revolution, well you know we all want to change the world." Shout it out with all the enthusiasm you can muster. Then walk around snapping your fingers and flashing your peace symbols, all the while maintaining a cool, sort of laid-back half-smile which seems to tell people, "Hey, I'm cool. I can dig the sixties. They're where it's at, right?"
The only problem with this year's '60s Bash, sponsored by Phi Sigma Epsilon, was that the only revolution present was found only occasionally, and then only in the music.
Pete Stegner, Phi Sig's president, said about 250 tickets were sold. Some of these people came to the post-bash party at the Phi Sig house, Stegner said.
The people who attended the bash at Carson Park were colorfully dressed. Some wore the stereotypical garb of the 1960s, including min-skirts, headbands, leather fringe, beads, long cloth purses, big bell-bottoms and a lot of purple. Others went the opposite direction, choosing to represent the "establishment" by wearing double-knit pant suits with matching top and bottom, or shoes and dresses from that time period.
The Vietnam War was fairly well-represented in signs, posters, and even a pseudo-veteran wearing a bandage and being pushed around
all night in a wheel chair.
At first glance, it seemed that all present were indeed there to relive this celebrated decade. But it was the music and conversation which gave the truth away. Let's face it. Times have changed and although there is still a fascination with the 1960s, people just do not share the same concerns and interests as their counterparts from 15 years ago.
Most noticeable of these differences was the musical difference. We all know that Dylan recently went religious, but 15 years ago he was God. jimi Hendrix, |anis Joplin, the Beatles, where were they? Of course, they did receive a token re-resentation upon crowd request, ut is "Beatles 1967-1970" an album representative of their influence on the 1960s flow of events?
What was played more were the soundtrack to "Animal House" and various other 1980s interpretations of what the 1960s were like. Dancing was the same as that found in any Water Street bar on any night. But then that wasn't too surprising. After all, this is all that today's college students know firsthand. Most of them can only barely remember 1969.
Still, what really counts in the end is whether people had a good time. With the free corn-on-the-cob and beer, the free-spiritedness and the loud music, how could they miss?
From left, clockwise: Andy Pankow characterizes the more grim side of the era; Wearing chains, leopard skin and face paint, Dave Pruehcr exhibits the less conservative dress; I ight hearts and light mood lets these women "kick loose"; Tara Cummings and Rick Thomsscn represent the "other side" of the generation.Guests join concert
by Cherie Phillips
Those people who attended the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concert expecting an evening of musical excellence were not disappointed. Performing with the orchestra at its Oct. 28 concert were the Eau Claire Oratorio Society, the Statesmen and mezzo soprano Kathryn Proctor.
During the first half, which was devoted to works by Johannes Brahms, Proctor accompanied the orchestra on "Alto Rhapsody, Op. 53," a bridal song which Brahms wrote to express his pain when his young love left him to marry someone else.
Proctor, an assistant professor of voice in the UWEC music department, was joined by the Statesmen on this number. When combined, these three musical elements were so delicately balanced that no single one stood apart from the others. The Statesmen and the orchestra had had only 30 minutes of rehearsal time together before the concert. This apparently had no detrimental effect on the overall performance, a fact which was indicative of each group's level of musical proficiency.
The Eau Claire Oratorio Society sang two pieces with the orchestra. The first, "Naenie, Op. 82," was a lament in commemoration of the death of one of Brahms' friends, beginning "Even beauty must die."
The third song was more representative of Brahms' interest in the theme of mankind's destiny. A haunting melody with harmonies woven in around it, it speaks of suffering man who "dwindles and falls blindly from one hour to another, as water is thrown from cliff to cliff for years into the unknown." In this piece, the choir performed as a
single voice. Tone and pitch were clear throughout and even the German lyrics were clear (especially if one understood German).
Conductor Margaret Hawkins led the musicians through the music with vitality and spirit. Smiling amiably at the audience between songs, she extended her arms in praise of the musicians.
The second half of the program was devoted to a single piece by Ludwig von Beethoven, consisting of five movements. Entitled, "Symphony No. 6 in F major," or "Pastoral," this work took the listener through scenes where the music attempted to express emotions aroused. First there was the cheerfulness felt upon approaching the countryside. Next a happy gathering of villagers. Third was a scene by the brook, then a fierce thunderstorm and finally the grateful thanks to the Almighty after the storm.
In one of his sketchbooks, Beethoven made the comment "the hearers should be allowed to discover the situation. Anyone who has an idea of country life can make out for himself the intentions of the author without many titles."
"Pastoral Symphony," he writes, is "No picture, but something in which the emotions are expressed which are aroused in men by the pleasure of the country."
His idea of music not always needing titles or explanation to be understood and interpreted was carried well by the orchestra. Under the direction of Hawkins the musicians made it easy to hear the villagers skipping the birds trilling and the brook splashing. Timpani rolls brought thunder into the Arena and crashing crescendoes illustrated the storms and winds.
Approximately 400 musicians combined efforts to bring a bit of pleasure into the lives of the 1900 in the audience. They accomplished this with little trouble and they did it with excellence.'Evening's
by Kathy Hall
Donald Hall's play, "An Evening's Frost," is not an ordinary play — it doesn't have traditional themes, acts, settings, action, plots. Instead, it chronologically traces the life of poet Robert Frost through biographic sketches, anecdotes and his poetry.
William McDonnell, a UWEC associate professor, portrayed Frost in his later years. With book of poems in hand, he sketched Frost's life from early childhood in San Francisco to the events that led to his death.
His portrayal was supplemented by John P. Hazen as narrator, who filled in details and provided transitions throughout the performance. Paul Anderson and Cathy Harvey played characters in Frost's poems and important people in his life.
"You come too," Frost says early in the play, "I shan't be gone long." The line, from "The Pasture," is Frost's personal invitation to the audience, seated in the intimate surroundings of the Riverside Theater, to join Frost as he looks back.
The UWEC production was the first amateur performance of the play. In 1965, Will Geer (Grandpa on "The Waltons") played the part of Frost in a professional performance. Last year, when Hall was on campus, McDonnell approached him about performing "An Evening’s Frost." Eventually, rights were granted.
Frost' traces poet's life
A problem arose with casting, since the role of Frost needed a mature, experienced actor. McDonnell who is also director of the play, found that acting and directing was no easy task.
"It's a painful pleasure," he said, "because the poems and the feeling of maturity is something I wanted."
Hall's play contains delightful details of Frost's life. The play is liberally sprinkled with witty anecdotes and recitations of Frost's famous poems. His insight and his wit arc evident throughout.
One of his greatest jokes was telling people he was born in 1875 instead of 1874. After a while he wasn't sure, and had to check with a friend:
"When was I born?" Frost asked.
"One year earlier than you said you were," his friend replied.
"That's what I thought."
McDonnell portrayed the man as the cynical, humorous and warm human being that he was, complete with twinkle in his eye, as he told of fooling people.
"I have written to keep the over-curious out of my secret places.
His jowls shook, his voice quaked and quavered and his brows furrowed as he uttered the famous lines:
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the differ-
Frost followed a highly structured style in his poetry and disliked anything else.
"War on cliches!"
"Free verse! I’d as soon play tennis without a net!"
The play was done with taste and left a warm feeling and a touch of awe and sympathy for the man who was 40-years-old before his first book of poetry was published. A man whose two daughters, two sons and wife died years before him, whose life was full of pain and rejection. Frost lived on.
"My life was a risk I had to take — and I took it!"
When he was 88, Frost went to Russia as a good-will ambassador for the United States. To a man who spent almost half his life getting accepted in America, the trip was a great honor.
"It's a grand time to be alive!"
Soon after he returned, he became seriously ill, yet he still was laughing.
"Forgive, oh Lord, my little jokes on Thee,
and I'll forgive Thy big jokes on me!"
Frost wanted people to remember him in a certain light.
"I had a lover's quarrel with the world."
Goodman speaks out on change
by Rosanne Pfieklicker
A self-titled "observer of change" spoke at I he UWEC Forum October 19 and told her audience it h time that we start telling our sons the women's movement has brought men the same choice about marriage and life plans that it has given to women Columnist Ellen Goodman said she has made a study of social change through the women’s movement, a movement from one life pattern to many.
"Women are dealing with the free choices of the 70s that are now the tough choices of thr '80s but men have been left out of the picture and this needs to change," she said Can men and women live together, work together and have it all? she asked Goodman said she is interested in the process of how people change. People have two basic feelings about change, an urge to tetreat into the past to avoid a lengthy process of change or the urge to lake a great leap into the future, she said.
People have been divided into two camps of change: those who want to leap and those who want to retreat, while a new middle has emetged from these two groups, Goodman said.
"The majorities of both groups have decided to keep the best of the traditional and get the best of change." Goodman said.
In seeking the best of change people have produced some media myths, she said, going from the "Supermom" image to the "Super-woman" image.
Goodman described Supermom as the mother whose children always wore homemade Halloween costumes and ate sand-
wiches decorated with raisins and carrot sticks
"She was the woman my generation carried around in our heads just for the guilt of it," Goodman said.
According to Goodman, the Superwoman myth has somehow been turned into a viable role model. She describes a day in the life of Superwoman as going like this
"She gets up and feeds a nutritious breakfast to her 2.3 children, which they actually eat. She gels the kids off to school and they forget nothing. She dresses in her $600 suit to go to her $S0.000-a-year job, which is creative and useful.
"Then after work she spends an hour Interacting with her children because we all know the quality of time you spend with children h more important than quantity. She then makes a lulu Child gourmet dinner and the family discusses the checks and balances of the economic system. Afterward she and her husband have time for a meaningful relationship and go upstairs, where she is multi-orgasmic until midnight."
Also. Goodman said. Superwoman's husband has to be caring, open and supportive. But there is guilt in both these roles, she said, the men feel guilty if they are not caring and women feel guilty if they can't be Superwoman,
"Women can have it all only if they can do it all — but by themselves." Goodman said.
Goodman said there has been a split in the national psyche because of the desperate need for caretakers which women have always been
"It's called success when men seek achievement but when women start talking about achievement it’s narcissism" she said.
Social change has been too lopsrdcd with women taking on male roles but few men taking on female roles, Goodman said.
The main reason for this lopsidedness is that women earn only 59 cents to every dollar men earn and women must therefore teei things will be equal if they are doing more inside the home, she said.
Goodman said people must look to private corporations, unions and volunteers to solve problems of social change. We have looked to the government too much, she said.
Everybody's life is divided Into home life, work life and private life. Goodman said, and everybody else' life always looks perfect. Actually, any given week one part of life is down the drain for everyone, she said.
"We all have to let ourselves off the hook," she said.
Goodman graduated from Radciiffe College in 1963.s$he spent a year at Harvard in 1973 as a Nieman fellow, studying social change, law. government and sociology.
Before joining the Boston Globe in 1967, Goodman was a researcher-reporter for Newsweek and a feature writer for the Detroit free Press. The Washington Post Writers Group began syndicating her column in 1976. In 1980. she received the Pulitrer Priae for distinguished commentary.
She is the author of the books "At targe," "Turning Points" and "Close to Home."Violins and Zukerman
by Cherie Phillips
An evening of Mozart, violins and Zukerman ... what more could a music-appreciator ask for? With the mere touch of a bow to the strings or the lips to a horn (not to overlook, of course, the years of practice), the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra grabbed onto and held tightly the attention of the audience at the orchestra's one-night performance in the Arena.
Giving the listeners a night of works composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Director Pinchas Zukerman led his musicians through wave after wave of good music. Never with an excess of flashy or showy gestures, Zukerman appeared a low-key, but effective conductor.
The first song of the concert, Violin Concerto No. 2 in D, K 211, consisted of a smooth, subtle blending of violin tones, with equally subtle interruptions by the rest of the orchestra. Zukerman's return to the place of his directing debut was marked by flawlessly graceful trills and runs on the violin.
Zukerman has been called "the most versatile of all major musicians" by the Washington Post. At 33, he carries with him a long string of musical credentials and achievements. He has appeared with national and international orchestras, recorded phonograph albums and appeared on television shows.
He was easily able to hold the stage with his superb violin playing while not actually taking away from the work of any of the other 32 musicians who complemented his performance with excellent backup.
After a brief intermission, the orchestra returned for the final piece, Mozart's Piano Concerto in B-flat, K. 595. This was Mozart's last concerto.
It is rumored within music circles that this piece contains a simplistic sort of withdrawal and reserve, and a certain mood of farewell because Mozart knew he would die in less than a year from when it was written.
Regardless of its exact source of inspiration, the orchestra captured its own interpretation of the mood and presented it with its own wonderful style.Singers bring life to old music
by Kathy Kistner
A large audience waited to hear the Elmer Iseler Singers in Gantner Concert Hall on Sept. 23. The auditorium was filled with the usual preshow bustle, but when the lights were turned down the crowd hushed, and the 20-member choir was making its stage entrance.
The 10 female choir members were dressed in formal black gowns, while the men wore identical black suits.
Under the direction of Dr. Elmer Iseler, the professional Canadian choir started the program with Mozart's "Missa brevis in C, K. 115," a piece of music believed to have been written during the spring of 1773.
"Hodie," by Healy Willan was the second religious choral arrangement presented. This was followed oy William Byrd's "Ave verum corpus," a
song known for its use of archaic dissonance, and John Paynter's "Exultet Coelum laudibus."
After a brief intermission, the choir returned to the stage, this time
to sing songs in English. George Frederic Handel's "Sing Unto God" introduced the second half of the program. Then, to the delight of the audience, the choir presented five of Harry Somers' "Song from the Newfoundland Outports."
The Newfoundland songs were humorous jingles originating from Canada. The group sang of a baudy young "Feller from Fortune," who delighted in drinking, roughhousing, and chasing pretty girls. The audience broke out into Bursts of laughter. It was evident that the choir also enjoyed the number, for they too, had smiles on their faces as they sang. The singers also combined "dibble, dibble” and other sounds to create another humorous Newfoundland song.
The choir, who have toured Europe with the Toronto Mendelssohn Cnoir, brought Latin religious music that was centuries old, into a living perspective for the audience. The choir, led by Iseler, entertained the audience with their excellence.Statesmen strive for versatility
by Steve Todd
The Singing Statesmen presented a fall concert Nov. 15 at Gantner Concert Hall at UWEC.
The Statesmen arc a 65-member male chorus conducted by Morris D. Hayes, UWEC music faculty member. The group is made up of mostly non-music majors, Hayes said.
Hayes organized the group in 1966. "There was a need for more offerings to be given at UWEC," he said. "There was a need for both a male chorus and a concert women's chorus," he said.
Hayes said the group strives to sing the very best of classical musical literature, and the latest popular music. "The group has a two-way thrust," he said. "The classical music shows the basic musicianship of the group and the popular music serves as more of a public relations device," Hayes said.
"The broad musical range of the
group "appeals to the taste of everyone in the audience," Hayes continued.
The Statesmen demonstrated their versatility at their UWEC concert. They sang a pleasing mixture of old and new songs, including religious music; works by Franz Schubert, Anton Dvorak and Pablo Casals; a fight song; three pirate songs; "John Henry;" and a Cole Porter medley.
The Statesmen's UWEC concert preceded the group's four-day tour of Minnesota, Nov. 18-21. They presented concerts in St. Paul, White Bear Lake, Stillwater and St. Peter. The tour included concerts at several high schools and a junior college. A concert at the Minnesota Choral Directors State Convention at Gusta-vus Adolphus College in St. Peter was the final stop of the tour.
The group has toured throughout Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. In 1980, the Statesmen presented a se-
ries of concerts in Norway and Sweden. They have appeared with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and have released their first record album.
Hayes said the number one objective of the group is to be a top singing organization with excellent taste. "The Statesmen are also a public relations arm of the university, used to promote alumni community relations and develop closer ties with schools in the state," he said.
In addition to conducting the group, Hayes is director of choral organizations at the university. He is a member of the choral advisory board of the National Endowment of the Arts and past national president of the American Choral Directors Association. An authority on the training and developing of male voices, Hayes also has conducted major festivals in 17 states and has served in the United States and abroad as a conductor and clinician.
6SStoessinger speaks of missiles, bombers and the economy
by Jennifer Weich
"It was a side show (AWACS), it prepares us for the least likely kind of attack," John Stoessinger, political analyst said at a forum Nov. 11 in the UWEC Arena. "The whole bloody business was a side show."
Americans will spend $80 billion because of the president's decision to build 100 MX missiles and 100 BM bombers, Stoessinger said. "This makes me shudder because by building these we are preparing ourselves for the least likely war, a thermal nuclear war," he said.
Our army is voluntary and is about as capable as "Private Benjamin," he said. There is too much drug and alcohol addiction, he said, and concentration should be on the strengthening of our army.
"We now have enough atomic missiles to ruin the Soviet Union 80 times over," he said. "We are not prepared for the least likely encounter, we are not prepared for the most conventionalist situation. We need a strong army, navy, and air force, a strong defense but not a wrong defense."
America is over-prepared in the nuclear field, Stoessinger said. If we saved that 80 billion the economy would survive, interest rates would come down and the money could be used for something else, he said.
The Russians are in worse shape than us, he said, because they lost China and Egypt and they are wiped out of their harvest.
"My own bet is that Russia will not invade Poland," Stoessinger said. "They would have to take over Poland's $30 billion deficit."
The Russians can just starve the Poles out, he said, while the United States faces the dilemma of how
much food are we going to ship to Poland? We should help out however we can, he said.
Our domestic priorities are energy, economy and education, he said. "I give the president high marks in energy but we still import one third of our petroleum," he said.
The strategic petroleum reserve is only enough for 40 days, the lowest reserve of all countries, he said. We better fill that reserve now with public funds and the time to buy is now, Stoessinger said.
"We waste as much as we import because we just don't have the national discipline," he said. "We Americans believe we are immortal."
Stoessinger said he sees more dif-
ficult days ahead for the U.S. economy. The way to get inflation down is with gold standard, and the president will try to do this, he said. But Stoessinger also believes getting back on the gold standard will cause chaos.
Stoessinger has taught all over the world and feels that education in the United States is a disaster both at higher and lower levels.
"Illiterates teach our children," he said. "Our teachers are no longer good."
"Supplement the education of your children," Stoessinger advised. "Watch over your children and don't allow them to watch so much television."
"Freedom is not free."

Homecoming Week's success was reflected in the large munber of Homecoming buttons sold. All 1,850 of the buttons, bearing the slogan “Take the Zing out of their Sting," were sold.
Love Games, patterned after those of Leo Buscaglia, were the first event, followed by the official Kick-Off Ceremony. Mike Slater, Rich McCollough and Chick Westby took first, second and third places, respectively, in the Frisbee Golf Competition.
On Wednesday, finalists for Homecoming royalty were announced. The five finalists were John Winter and Michelle Mortensen, Sutherland; Mike Andersen and Clare LeRoy, Horan; Katie Lane and Steve Teese, Craig Court; Michelle Tennant and Todd Carlson, Oak Ridge and Anne Leschke and Don Klackner, Murray.
The Yell-Like-Hell cheering contest which was preceded by a Snake Dance, was held on Wednesday also. Alpha Xi Delta garnered first prize with Sutherland a close second. Other participants included Murray, Towers and Katherine Thomas halls.
The Varsity Show was on Friday night with emcee Harry Waller. It featured the Singing Statesmen and Jazz Ensemble I and II. The ticket sales indicated that a crowd of about 1,750 people had come to see the exhibition of student talent.
To end the week, the torchlight royalty ceremony was held on the south end of the footbridge. John Winter and Michele Mortensen were elected Homecoming King and Queen.
Other events of the week included a Cabin concert featuring Chuck Mitchell, a "Wellness Revolution" film, and ice cream social and a window painting contest won by Oak Ridge Flail.by Rosanne Pfielsticker
Power docs not come from the barrel of a gun but from the cooperation of the society being ruled or governed.
This was the message Gene Sharp brought to the first UWEC Forum of 1981.
Sharp, a leading proponent of non-violent defense policies, said the time has come for a civilian-based defense. This type of defense would evolve around the use of social, political, psychological and economic weapons, he said.
"Rulers, of themselves, have no more power than yourselves," Sharp said. "The authority is in the populace. The power in politics depends on the people."
According to Sharp's theory, when people can withdraw their obedience, authority collapses. This is accomplished through the use of hunger strikes, economic boycotts, strikes, civil disobedience and any
disruption of the system, he said. The people can paralyze an oppressive regime by withdrawing the economic and political support it needs to survive. Sharp said.
He cited the overthrow of Czar Nicholas during the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia as a prime example. Sharp also used the collapse of the rule of the Shah of Iran as another example of the success of civil disobedience. Strikes and the repudiation of the Shah's right to rule led to his downfall, he said.
"A tyrannical form of government cannot exist without the assent of the people and institutions it enslaves," Sharp explained.
Sharp cited a need to study dictatorships to locate their weaknesses. A well-defined, well-rehearsed plan of attacking those weaknesses through organized non-cooperation could then be implemented, he said.
"Deterrence is not neccessarily military," Sharp said. He said that by refusing to cooperate with an op-
pressive regime, refusing to give it what it wants and needs, the ability and incentive of that regime to exist is taken away.
People have to stop believing that the build-up of military arms is a deterrent to warfare. Sharp said. As more countries continue to increase their military strength and require nuclear arms, the chance of their use is greater, he said.
Sharp claims that his theory has nothing to do with pacifism but asserts that civilian-based defense is active resistance requiring physical and moral courage.
The individual success of non-violent defense methods relies on human nature and man's stubbornness to make it work. Sharp said.
"This isn't based upon the power of love, it's based on the human capacity for stubbornness," Sharp said.
Sharp is a professor of political science and sociology at Southeastern Massachusetts University, a visiting scholar at Harvard University and an internationally recognized author.
WJMachin creates "homeland"
Roger Machin, who is orginally from Leicester, England, displayed his sculpture creation entitled, "Longing for the Homeland," at the Foster Art Gallery during the month of March.
Machin said his art piece incorporated the "ethnic heritage of Eau Claire within a sculptured exercise based on meterological expectations."
He created his sculpture in the roofed courtyard of the gallery with a mapping of the city of Eau Claire on the floor in chalk. Over the top was a construction representing Norway in hard-packed snow.
"As Norway changes from solid to liquid, the plastic package will gradually fold into itself, and thus the homeland is absorbed into the drains of the New World, exposing the city map," said Machin, who earned his bachelor's degree from Brightan Polytechnic and his M.F.A. degree from the School of Art Institute in Chicago, where he currently resides."Rosina" part of 1981 Artist Series
by Rosanne Pfielsticker
In Rossini's comic opera "The Barber of Seville," Count Almaviva married the beautiful young Rosina. In Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro ' Rosina suffered the heartbreak of her husband's infidelity. In the UWEC Arena Nov. 10, their tumultuous and tragicomical romance continued, in a new romantic comedy performed by the Midwest Opera Theater.
The Artists Series presentation of the Hiram Titus-Barbara Field opera "Rosina" was sung in English. It follows the lives of the Count, his Countess and the young page Cher-rubino — picking up where "Figaro" left off.
At the conclusion of "The Marriage of Figaro," the philandering Count Almaviva was reunited with his countess, Rosina, while the precocious youngster Cherubino presumably went off to the wars in Catalonia. During the ensuing year, Cherubino, having deserted the army, has arrived back in Seville in time to discover that his adored Countess is suffering yet another humiliation at the hands of Almaviva. He convinces Rosina she would be better off if she ran away with him.
As the production began, the lovers are seen in a Madrid garret where they have been living for nearly a year. They have a baby and their circumstances are desperate. Cherubino has turned artist, somewhat unsuccessfully, with Rosina as the subject of endless "Madonna and Child" portraits. Unfortunately, none have yet to find a buyer.
Driven to the end of his rope by a landlady who threatens to throw his family into the streets (and knock them over with her alcoholic breath), Cherubino secretly pawns a ruby ring cherished by Rosina. She is strongly attached to it because it was Almaviva's wedding gift to her. While he is gone on this questionable errand, an art dealer, Mendoza, arrives with the wonderful news that one of the portraits has caught the
eye of a certain connoisseur, Le Comte de Paris.
This art-loving aristocrat arrives in the shabby garret shortly thereafter, accompanied by his young mistress, Amparo. Rosina immediately recognizes him as the philanderer Almaviva, in disguise. Almaviva has seen the portrait of his runaway wife in one window and the pawned ruby in another, and has arrived to claim both. Cherubino does not recognize his old acquaintance but does spot the ruby on Amparo's finger, and is faced with the dilema of getting it back before Rosina notices it. Within the course of a single day, possessions are sorted out, disguises are removed, truths are acknowledged and Rosina is forced to choose between her younger, adoring lover and her husband.
UWEC Arena acoustics aside, "Rosina" was a tuneful and comedic experience. Soprano Kathryn Wright, in the title role, combined just the right amount of vulnerability and strength, while tenor Dario Coletta as Cherubino was the personification of the young man besotted by love.
Mary Boyd Froderickson as the tipsy landlady and Gary Briggle as the lustful art dealer, Mendoza, contributed most of the comedic elements. James E. McKeel, playing the nearest thing to a villian in this production, Count Almaviva, managed to use his acting talents and baritone voice in such a way as to earn the audience's sympathy in spite of itself.
The performance was part of a six-week Upper Midwest tour presented by the Midwest Opera Theater, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Midwest Opera Theater is the touring affiliate of the Minnesota Opera.
By the way, Rosina decided she would be happier with her husband. Of course, Almaviva first had to swear everlasting and ever faithful love. But that's another story, another opera.
Above Rosina and Amparo commiserate wilh one another over the men in their lives, above right. Rosina tricks Mendo a into a romantic pursuit ot the drunken landlady right Count Almaviva tells Rosina it is she he has always loved and needed
70Coneheads, Bo Derek, Gene Simmons, M M's, Crayolas, Weirdos — it takes all kinds for Halloween on Water St.Haunted street
by Steve Todd
Whatever happened to just plain ghosts, ghouls and goblins f
An intriguing assortment of haunting creatures flourished Halloween night, as Water Street overflowed with UWEC students — most of them decked out in some kind of outlandish costumes.
Crowds of people filled up the two-block section of Water Street that was blocked off by Eau Claire police. A person could only dream of getting inside a bar and finding a seat — almost every one was packed full, with long lines of people waiting to get in.
While many wore the rather traditional Halloween costumes — the witches, vampires, devils and ghosts — others dressed in more unusual costumes, ones that displayed just a little bit more imagination. All were able to catch a person's eye and produce a chuckle.
Among the crowd was a handful of sailors and soldiers; a pimp, complete with black face, pink pants, orange shoes and his "number one lady;" a shower, with a pair of panty hose draped over the top of the curtain; a six-foot, three-inch zebra; leopards slyly roaming the street; Jane, without Tarzan; and a few punk rockers.
Father Time and Baby New Year made an appearance, as did President Reagan, who was last seen in hot pursuit of someone dressed as a bag of jellybeans. His secret service men had a difficult time trying to keep up with him.
The street was also crawling with the usual amount of Halloween "villains," as groups of gangsters, motorcycle chain gangs and killer bees all stalked the street.
One final note — only one set of "Blues Brothers" patrolled the streets on Halloween, down from a record four pair last year. Dark glasses, black hats and thin ties must be out of style, I guess.Family-wide talent obvious in
by Rosanne Pfielsticker
The Diameral Trio performed in Gantncr Concert Hall November 3 as part of the 1981 UWEC Chamber Series, and it would be easily understood if the question on the minds of most members of their audience was how so much talent ended up in one family.
The trio consists of three sisters: Diane on«piano, Margaret on cello and Elizabeth on violin. All three have studied at the juilliard School of Music in New York and have performed together for more than 10 years, giving recitals in Korea and throughout the United States.
Their UWEC recital began with a performance of Haydn's Trio in G Major. H. XV, No. 25. This musical piece began at a moderately slow pace, but built up to a faster tempo, ending with a flourish. The second selection. Trio in E Minor, Op. 67, by Dmitri Shostakovich, also began slowly, with an almost somber quality. It began with high, dangerously close-to-screeching notes on the cello, with first the violin and then the piano joining in. The second movement was a remarkable change in mood from the first, featuring an all but frantic pace.
After a brief intermission, the trio returned to end their concert with Trio in D Minor. Op. 49 by Mendelssohn.
The UWEC Chamber Series is designed to present instrumental soloists, ducts and small ensembles to the community. In doing this it considers outstanding musicians from throughout the United States and abroad, inviting only a few.
The three Lim sisters are well qualified to be considered among those few. Pianist Diane Lim was returning to UWEC after a solo artist series performance in the 1976-77 season. She has won several awards, including the grand prize gold medallion in the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra Young Artist competition and Juilliard concerto competition. Cellist Margaret Lim began studying music at age six, while violinist Elizabeth began her studies at three, and at age five performed in her first recital.
751981-82 Cabin season
Throughout the year, the Cabin provides a place for students, faculty and friends to gather and listen to coffeehouse performers.
Sometimes they are professionals, and at other times students perform.
Reflected on these pages are some of the 1981-82 performers, including "Cabin Calamity," when cabin committee members took their turn on the stage.
76Winter art sale draws out
by Cyndi Pesko
On December 3 and 4, the Skylite Lounge of Davies Center again filled with festive aura of the Winter Art Sale.
The Winter Art Sale, sponsored by the Art Student Association, provides a unique opportunity for students and professional artists of the area to display and sell their artwork. It also presents an accessible opportunity for the UWEC community to buy both useful and decorative Christmas gifts at reasonable prices.
According to Randy Durbin, senior art major and chairman of the Winter Art Sale, this year's emphasis was an encompassing of the arts.
Student performers played and sang throughout both days and on Thursday members of NOT A read poetry.
"We wanted to make the Winter Art Sale a little more like the River City Artsfest and bring the arts together," Durbin said. The Art Student Association co-sponsors the River City Artsfest, a two-day art festival in May.
The music also added a "nice atmosphere," Durbin said.
Area artists exhibited and sold their drawings, paintings, prints, stoneware, stoneware in wood, weavings and wa-tercolors, among other forms of art.
Many of the artists have been regular participants in the Winter Art Sale.
Among the student performers were Fritz Danek, Mitch Larson, Brian Bertrand, Rosemary Cashel, Cherie Phillips, and Sue Enstrom.

79Annual blood drive collects 833 pints
by Rosanne Pfielsticker
The November blood drive at UWEC collected 833 units of blood.
Reflect on that for a moment 833 pints of that life-giving fluid came out of the bodies that walk around this campus every day.
That means 833 people walked through the doors of the Tamarack Room in Davies Center and had their fingers pricked to check for diseases. Only blood of the first quality can be used. Of course, those who were a little fainthearted felt this was enough blood-giving already.
Each individual donor was then sent to one of eight different stations and told to lie down on a cot. The American Red Cross worker in charge at the station was ready with a reassuring smile and what looked like an oversized rubber band to tie around the donor's upper arm. The donor was then given a rubber ball to squeeze to get the blood pumping into the arm.
Then came the moment that often separates the strong from the weak. The right vein was located, disinfected and a needle was stuck into it. The donor could watch as the blood slowly flowed through the needle, through a tube and into a bottle.
When the bottle was filled, the donor was told to hold his arm up to stop the flow of blood. The donor was then helped to sit up, helped over to a table filled with cups of fruit juice and plates of cookies and told to replenish the fluids in his body.
There were, once again, those fainthearted few who didn't have such smooth sailing. When the head started spinning and the body started tingling, it was time to breathe into the brown paper bag. Not the most sophisticated treatment, but it seemed to work.
The blood drive on campus was coordinated by Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity which includes among its objectives, "to provide service to humanity."
This year the drive averaged at least 275 pints of blood a day for the three days running," drive chairman Dan Schmitt said. "The second day was the biggest with 317 pints taken."
Blood taken in the drive, which has been an annual event at UWEC and sponsored by APO for 18 years, goes to a five-state area: Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Iowa.
'Be the best
by Marty Hendricks
Henry Aaron was one-for-three and batted .333 at UW-Eau Claire this year.
The major league baseball ho-merun king appeared for his Forum address Jan. 25, 1982 after cancelling two other scheduled appearances last September.
Duties as vice president in charge of player development for the Atlanta Braves forced Aaron to postpone his speech, entitled "The Courage to Succeed."
But the 48-year-old Aaron, who began his baseball career in Class C ball with the Eau Claire Bears of the Northern League in 1952, finally delivered his speech to approximately
1,000 people in the University Arena.
"Let me just say how happy I am to be back in Eau Claire, Wis.," Aaron told the crowd in his 15-minute address followed by a 40-minute question and answer session. "First of all I'd like to apologize for not being here last year. There were things that happened that were beyond my control and I hope that I'm forgiven for that."
Aaron said his flight to Eau Claire that afternoon reminded him of flying into Eau Claire 25 years ago at the infancy of his illustrious baseball career.
"I can recall it (that day) very vivid-
ly," Aaron said. "When I got off the plane it was raining. At the time they (the Boston Braves who later became the Milwaukee Braves before moving to Atlanta) had given me a $5 suitcase and I lost all of my clothes on the runway.
"Some reporter said, 'What did you do with 'em?' and I said, 'Well, what do you think? I only have about $200 in my pockets — I went back and picked 'em all up."'
Aaron recalled his modest payroll of $350 a month with the Bears and compared it to the outrageous salaries demanded by today's athletes.
"They're not concerned with what's happening. They want to know what’s in it for them. Baseball, football players or whatever they may be. They want to know their value. How much money they can make," Aaron said.
This "what's in it for me" attitude is sweeping across the nation like a plague, Aaron said. "And so I come to you — a university, a place where you are studying all kinds of subjects and preparing to take your place in the world — with a unique challenge."
"You are in a selfish world where many groups and individuals are out to get all they can get for themselves," said the man who shattered Babe Ruth's former home run record of 714 on April 8, 1974. "The challenge to you is to join them or
help create an alternative. Keep in mind that if you are not part of the solution, you're part of the problem."
Obstacles which will hinder the solution are inflation, discrimination, and selfishness — and they won't be easy to overcome, Aaron said. But the solution is to adopt a "do unto others as you could have them do unto you" attitude, and reject the "what's in it for me attitude," and give something of yourself back to your fellow man.
Aaron has certainly given enough of himself. He has used his influence and stature to help the causes of Muscular Dystrophy, Sickle Cell Anemia, the Easter Seal Society and the Boy Scouts.
"Some of you may not be able to hit 755 home runs. Some of you may not be able to play professional baseball. But God gave us all a talent — all of us," Aaron said.
"I want to tell all you young people that whatever life, whatever direction you chose, remember one thing. Strive to be the best at whatever you do. You have to learn to crawl before you can walk, and I did a lot of crawling. I crawled because I felt I had the talent to get up and walk and play professional baseball."
In his illustrious 25-year career, which ended with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1976, Aaron proved he was the best.

Many archaeology buffs were delighted with Peter Jones' lectures on prehistoric tool manufacturing Feb. 1-2. The lectures were part of a series sponsored by the Leakey Foundation and will take him from Yale University in Connecticut to the University of California-Berkeley.
At the age of 25, Jones is perhaps the world's foremost expert on the Acheulean Industrial tool complex. He became interested in stone tool making when he was 12, after which his interest became an obsession of sorts. Jones comes by this interest honestly. His parents arc a unique couple who met in Timbuktu while his mother was hitchiking in the desert. Jones was born in Germany and has traveled extensively, doing research in Afghanistan, France and Iceland. It became evident that there was little left for him to learn on the undergraduate level, so he went right from high school to graduate school and received a degree in prehistory after only one year of graduate study.
After a dazzling Introduction at UW-EC, Jones came to the podium and quietly expressed his hope "to live up to the introduction," He explained that in a way the lecture se-
ries was misnamed. "The project is not really Olduvai Revisited — I live there!"
Olduvai Gorge is in Tanzania and has been the site of several important archaeological finds including the remains of the oldest man yet discovered and the Laetolil Footprints.
Jones has been an assistant to Mary Leakey for several years. He explains that their research unit is different from any other because they actually live on the site year-round and do the labwork there instead of removing the findings outside the country for study.
The basic tool Jones is interested in is called a hand ax, which he explains was the universial tool for
1,300,000 years. He describes this period as "man's most stable technological period, for the rate of change is now so fast it can't be measured."
Jones' studies involve excavating and duplicating tool remains, then using the tool in a job it might have been used for by early man. This technique is called experimental archaeology, which can, Jones said, help greatly to put things into perspective by "gaining an insight into what was going on over one million
years ago." He said he strongly feels that "traditional approaches don't involve getting your hands dirty; the only way to discover is to go out and
His philosophy was presented in a video tape which showed him butchering an elephant. The task was easily accomplished with a stone tool slightly larger than one's own hand. One of the most interesting scenes in the video presentation was Jones manufacturing a stone ax the way early man did — by hitting rock on rock. A hand ax can be made from any dense rock.
From his work experience, Jones has concluded that early man probably scavanged for most of his food. Thus hunting is a fairly recent development. Through simulation experiments, he has discovered that the tools he has excavated are processing tools, not weapons. He also believes that the endurance of the hand ax is owed to "early man's capacity for living in tune with the environment very nicely with no reason for change." Jones was careful to note that his work is theoretical, but added that practical experiments support it.Jack Reynolds
China: A class by itself
by Bill Chrostowski
"It is not good for the Christian health to hustle the Asian ground. The Asian smiles and the Christian riles; and wears the Christian down.
At the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased, and an epitaph drear; A fool lies here, who tried to hustle the East."
lack Reynolds used Rudyard Kipling's poem to reinforce his message: the people and powers of the Far East are not to be taken lightly.
Reynolds is quite familiar with people of the Orient for he spent more than 15 years in the Far East — mainly in China — as a foreign correspondent for NBC. Reynolds shared his experiences and knowledge with a University Arena audience of 500 in a presentation titled "China: A Class by Itself."
Reynolds seemed intent on dispelling the common notion that Asia, China in particular, is just one big "homogeneous whole."
"China is so varied, so diverse; we're talking about a land that has almost as many languages as it does provinces," Reynolds said, "Just geographically, it ranges from hard, hard scrubland to highly sophisticated and advanced cities like Shanghai."
Kipling's poem should serve as warning to the "instant experts," said Reynolds. He referred to people he frequently met in his travels and characterized them as thinking they can completely figure out China in a matter of days or weeks.
China also is a country that is un-
dergoing a great deal of change, said Reynolds, and has been since the Communist Revolution of 1949.
In 1949, the Nationalist Chinese government was overthrown by Communists who renamed the country the People's Republic of China. The Nationalists fled to the island of Taiwan, where they remain today and still consider themselves the reigning government for the entire country.
Reynolds said that the current changes are not as "hectic and painful as in '49," but present just the same."
One change Reynolds discussed at length was the loss of admiration for the Communist Party among the country's youth.
"There is a great deal of cynicism on the part of the young people about the Communist Party," he said, "The Communist Party is simply not that believable anymore; it's not something that young people look up to."
Discontentment with the Communist regime grew out of the people's feelings of helplessness when dealing with the government, Reynolds said. The Chinese government is overpopulated with bureaucrats and feelings of distrust and dispair are evident when talking to the people, he said.
Reynolds believes trimming the bureaucracy and restoring the people's confidence in the Communist Party are the two greatest challenges for Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping.
Reynolds said that although former Chairman Mao Tse-tung is Still
spoken of with reverence, his reputation has become "somewhat flawed" because of "after-the-fact" findings concerning the Communist Party.
To satisfy his curiosity about the grip Mao had on the Chinese people, Reynolds said he asked an elderly, well-traveled Chinese man "just what did Mao Tse-tung mean to the people of China?"
The man replied: "Mao Tse-tung taught us self-respect, he taught us we didn't have to be ashamed to be Chinese."
Reynolds' attitude regarding U.S.-China relations was optimistic despite U.S. arms sales to Taiwan. "Chi-nese-Amcrican relations will succeed for a very practical reason — because they have to," he said. "The United States and China have a safety net because of their common interests in business, defense and Russia."
Reynolds also found reason for optimism in Taiwan-Chinese relations.
"This summer, Taiwan is hosting a women's softball tournament and Peking is planning on sending a team," he said.
Attempting to put China in perspective with the rest of the world, Reynolds called the country a "regional power," referring to its status in Asia. "But,” he added, "it is a country that has the potential — by the end of this century - to be a superpower."Folk story
by Lori La Chapelle
"Wiley and the Hairy Man ' a play by Suzan Zeder, was this year's Theater for Young Audiences production. The folk story won a Joseph Jefferson Award for the outstanding children's play of 1977.
Directed by William Baumgartner of the speech department, the play is the story of a fatherless boy's struggle to overcome fear of the unknown. The Hairy Man represents the unknown, haunting Wiley every day and at night in dreams. Eventually, Wiley comes to accept that even his mother's magic abilities can't keep him from fear; he must develop self-confidence to control his destiny.
Patrick Porten was delightful as Wiley, combining the child-like reasoning found in the script with the natural, active gestures of youth. Porten's portrayal was realistic; one forgot that he was actually a college student and accepted him as a child. A valid indication of his success in the role was evidenced by the behavior of the audience. Children in the audience alternately laughed, cried or spoke aloud, relating to Porten as a child.
Cindy Wulff, as Wiley's gypsy-clad Mammy, exuded a maternal air, although her face appeared too
portrays child's fears
youthful for the part. Such an experienced conjuror may have exhibited a more wrinkled countenance. Despite her youthful appearance, Wulff showed the audience how parents feel when they must make their children accomplish a difficult task such as conquering fear. Wulff's maturity as an actress and resonant voice convincingly conjured the maternal bearing necessary to the role.
The Hairy Man, portrayed by Robert Johnson, was indeed a fear-in-stilling character. Johnson's dramatically deep and demonic voice and physical flexibility that bordered on contortion served to send a chilly fear through adults and children alike. Johnson's costume, bib overalls and a flannel shirt, featured large swatches of hair and was particularly effective (one expected The Hairy Man to look much like a baboon, not a man)! White highlighting creme surrounded his eyes and the hollows of his cheeks, creating a mystifying and drawn countenance.
Tension created by The Hairy Man's presence was broken by Wiley's Dog. Craig McKevitt played Dog, attired in a costume and makeup reminiscent of a childhood Halloween costume. The children immediately related to Dog as being
a "good guy," and laughter filled Schofield Auditorium during chase scenes between Dog and The Hairy Man. Dog would chase the wailing Hairy May out of the theater and then return obediently to Wiley, bearing a swatch of The Hairy Man's hair in his mouth. McKevitt's role required silence and his canine antics carried him smartly through the role.
A chorus of six swamp creatures served to provide a concrete picture of the good magic of Wiley's mother and the evil magic of The Hairy Man. Attired in unique costumes fashioned out of ribbins hand-tied to netted thermal underwear, the creatures appeared multi-colored, faceless and shaggy. To illustrate magic, the actors and actresses arranged themselves in groupings that resembled furniture, trees, plants and rocks.
The entire production was short, lasting a little over an hour. The acting and directing were enhanced by colorful costumes, fine makeup and creative lighting. To say the children in the audience enjoyed "Wiley and the Hairy Man" would be an understatement; to omit that the adults enjoyed it just as much would be unforgivable.Production is "unsinkable"
The musical production of, "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," filled the air of Ganiner Concert Hall on Feb. 19-20, 22-23, and 25-26.
The play is based on the life of Margaret "Dolly" Tobin Brown, who won a place in history for her heroism during the sinking of the Titanic.
Molly (Caroline Jones) goes to Leadville, Colo, to seek her fortune leaving her family behind. She meets and marries a man named Johnny Brown (Chris Hartung), who strikes it rich.
The musical included such songs as "Belly Up to the Bar Boys," "I'll Never say No," and "I Ain't Down Yet."( r .

Breaking out the Springtime attitude89Faculty morale plunges
Faculty morale at UW-Eau Claire, or the lack of it, became an issue of discussion late in the 1981 fall semester, but as the year ended permanent steps to rectify faculty complaints had not been taken.
The morale problem came into public view in December when Faculty Senate Chairman Roland Schlattman circulated a memo among faculty and administrators which said, "I think the faculty feel their voice and influence in the governance structure is being threatened." He said the administration had taken the faculty's traditional role of policy initiation and replaced it with one of reaction to policy changes that were already made.
The administration has been blaming “the resignation of Dr. (John) Morris. Dr. Dale Dick and Dr. (Suzanne) Van Ort and the legal cases of Dr. (Robert) Paige. Dr. (Frederick) Haug and Mr. (Elwood) Karwand, have been been cited as the basis for the decline in morale. Even though the legal cases arc unfortunate, dc-
ftrading and inexcusable, I don't be-ieve a faculty . as we have at UW-Eau Claire would let these events hinder their function in the classroom or decrease their morale," Schlattman said. “What will affect morale is persistent symptomatic evidence of any departure from the concept of shared governance."
I don't want to sec the faculty's role limited to reaction, especially ex post facto," he said.
Chnncellor Emily Hannah said in December that faculty morale was not unusually low and that the faculty was not being shut out of decisions.
“Morale is slightly lower than usual for this time of year," she said. "My standard is this is the usual pre-Christmas slump from the campuses I've been at. I do not think the issue is all that serious. It's just natural to a new administration.
"I think morale's fairly low and I think it goes back to the beginning of summer, the first of the year," said Paul Hilbrich, music professor.
“There are more faculty members this year that would leave if they had a place to go than I've encountered in the last few years. I really think that tells you something about morale, if they think leaving would be good for them .. "
"Faculty morale is a problem on the campus presently and I don't believe it can be explained by the trauma of a new administration or by the actions of a few individuals," said Harry Harder, English professor. “It's more pervasive problem. It began last semester and has reappeared this semester."
“She (Hannah) treats us as if she were in a collective bargaining system but she doesn't seem to make a distinction between collegiality and collective bargaining," said Nadine St. Louis, associate English professor. “I don't think that most of the faculty would object to her goals but if they don't have a hand in deciding how those goals are going to be handed out, they are not going to stand by them. They will either rebel strongly or be broken When faculty are not involved in the initial stages they are put into a position of reacting only, and they do not have the opportunity to Investigate the other options it's not shared governance anymore, it’s imposed governance, and we have one of the strongest traditions of shared governance in the system."
“My view is that things need to begin with faculty governance, to begin with those not affected by the change or non-change," Schlattman said. “In her own mind she's being more democratic than our faculty governance system. But this campus has a way of instigating the changes — they say 'I want to be part of the change, don't leave me out' and that's what's being threatened."
Schlattman, in his December memo, cited four symptoms of the root problem affecting faculty morale: "dividing the merit (salary increase) category recommendations into three levels, use of task forces without faculty governance participation, criteria used in making pro-
motion and tenure decision and changing the theme of the university and the letterhead."
The morale problem continued into the second semester as English professor August Rubrecht called for an early faculty evaluation of the chancellor's performance. In a letter to Schlattman requesting the evaluation, Rubrecht said Hannah had repeatedly insulted and degraded the faculty.
The faculty handbook calls for an evaluation of new administrators within two years of assuming office. According to the established schedule, the chancellor was to be evaluated in early May. The Faculty Senate Executive Committee eventually denied Rubrecht's request for an early evaluation. The committee also passed a resolution stating that its members would “do everything possible to assist the chancellor in understanding the traditions, practices and policies of UWEC and will also make every effort to understand her style of administration."
Hannah, meanwhile, said discussion between discontented faculty members and herself were necessary to end the morale problem. In early February she considered the possibility of bringing an ombudsman to the campus to assess relations between the faculty and herself.
The ombudsman, Hannah said, would be able to determine if the differences were substantive or simply differences in style.
“I think sometimes an outsider can understand how people's styles are different and help them to work together," Hannah said. "... We might all learn a little bit from it."
Two weeks after she originally mentioned the ombudsman possibility, however, Hannah said she was in no hurry to bring such an observor to UWEC to review chancellor-faculty relations. She said that she would rather wait and attempt to handle disputes internally, like a family hassle, she said, her rift with faculty members would be settled best through internal discussions.
H2Sara Chapman resigns
Conflict of interest charges a factor.
Sara Chapman, executive assistant to Chancellor Emily Hannah, resigned at the end of the first semester as conflict of interest charges concerning a $6,500 salary increase for Chapman increased. The conflict of interest charges developed when it was learned that Hannah and Chapman shared ownership of a house and held a joint checking account.
Hannah, however, denied the conflict of interest, stating the salary increase was made after consultation with Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs John Morris and Assistant Chancellor for Budget and Development Charles Bauer.
"Dr. Morris and I looked at particularly the salaries of Dr. Chapman and Dr. (Larry) Schnack (assistant vice chancellor) ' Hannah said.
The increases in salaries were an attempt to bring the two to the same level as the school deans, whose average salary is $45,174. Chapman's increase was 16.9 percent and Schnack's was 14.1 percent.
Morris, however, said he had not consulted with Hannah about Chapman's increase but did not disagree with It.
"She told me what she wanted to do," Morris said. "I did make a recommendation on Larry Schnack's increase, which was about 8 percent, but we are generally conservative with increases for administrators."
Bauer also denied consultation.
"I probably processed the increase," he said. "I may have developed an analysis for the chancellor, but I do that for many areas," he said.
Chapman's increase was determined by the chancellor, as were the increases for the rest of the executive staff, Bauer said.
Hannah said the joint checking account was a household maintenance account.
"Your NSP bill is your NSP bill," Hannah said. "If you pay it out of the same account it is much easier than alternating the payment of it or paying half of it. It's the easy thing to do," she said.
Chapman and Hannah were coowners of a house at 217 Skyline Drive, according to an Eau Claire county deed. Initially, Hannah purchased the house for $94,000 on Nov. 28. 1980. On April 15, 1981, Chapman became co-owner for $47,000 county records showed.
County tax records also showed Hannah and Chapman split the tax bill. Hannah paid $887.71 on Jan. 28, 1981, and Chapman paid the same amount Aug. 5,1981, tax records indicated.
Chapman was appointed Nov. 5, 1980, after a screening process, Hannah said. She was hired at a $38,500 salary.
An agreement was made between Chapman and Morris about Chap-
man's salary before she was hired, Hannah said. Chapman was to be paid the same salary she received as associate academic vice chancellor of the Minnesota State University systems, which was $38,500, Hannah said. Chapman accepted with the understanding the salary would be increased, she said.
"People don't move for exactly the same salary," Hannah said.
Chapman's resignation was announced three days after the Spectator reported information about the salary increase and the joint financial dealings. Chapman also sold her share of the house.
Publicity surrounding Chapman's finances and questions about her relationship with the UWEC faculty were given as the primary reasons for her resignation. In an interview with the Spectator, Hannah said Chapman was considering resigning three months before the store appeared. The story, she said, was the final straw.
According to a memo circulated by Hannah in regard to Chapman's resignation. Chapman accepted a fellowship to complete a book-length manuscript on English author Henry James. She retained a tenured position in the English department, in January, Hannah said she did not know if Chapman would return to fill the position.John Morris resigns
'Lame Duck' role irks administrator
UW-Eau Claire' second-highest ranking official resigned in December after serving for seven years as vice chancellor for academic affairs.
John Morris announced in October that he would be resigning from the post effective June BO. He said he left in December because he did not like the prospect of working as a lame duck administrator.
"The prospect of working six to seven months as a lame duck was unpleasant ' said Morris. "Once you make a decision to do something, you get eager to do it. I had made my decision to go back to teaching full time, and I was getting anxious to get started."
Morris spent the second semester preparing for his return to full-time teaching in the English department, possible as early as the fall of 1982.
"I have enjoyed it. but it's time for a change," he said. "I think my field is very important and, while administration is important, the real action is in the classroom and I miss it.
"I've been thinking about this for several years .. I thought about this last year, but it was a bad year, with a new chancellor coming in and a new dean and library director. I felt we needed continuity then."
Working to manage tight resources in a time of growth and planning for the problems of enrollment declines were the most significant aspects of his term, Morris said. "The flexibility we need is built in now. We've got a seven to eight year period of enrollment declines to ride
through and I'll ride through them in the classroom."
"It is with regret that I hear this news," said Leonard Haas, for-merUW-Eau Claire chancellor. "He has made a tremendous contribution, not only on this campus, but to the entire UW System and the state ... He has served as dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. He was interim chancellor at a very, very difficult time and he did an excellent job. He has been a tremendous source of inspiration for me personally."
"The entire System will feel this loss," said Faculty Senate Chairman Ronald Schlattman. "He has System-wide respect .. he is appreciated for his understanding of the value of academics and his attempts to maintain excellence in times of limited budgets. His open door policy with the faculty and his willingness to deal with issues head-on are some of the things that he will be missed for.”
Morris began teaching at UW-Eau Claire in 1956 after teaching at the University of Tennessee, Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. and Arkansas A M College. From 1965 to 1971 he was dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, from 1971 to 1973 he served as interim vice chancellor, and in 1974 he was named vice chancellor for academic affairs. He served as acting chancellor from 1972 to 1973.
Morris has received the Frank Chisholm award for distinguished services by the Wisconsin Council for Teachers of English.
He served as chairman of a statewide study of Nursing and Nursing Education and of the Regent's committee on the future of the extension system.
Morris received a bachelor's degree in naval science and in mathematics, as well as a master's degree in English, from the University of South Carolina. He received his doctorate from the University of Tennessee.
Morris's position was filled temporarily by Larry Schnack, assistant vice chancellor, who was appointed acting vice chancellor. The appointment of a new vice chancellor was expected to be made in late May or June.
Journalism Department Chairman Elwood Karwand. 50, plead guilty in late November to embezzling more than $22,000 from the advertising account of the Spectator, UW-Eau Claire's student newspaper. The exact amount of money that was embezzled will probably never be known because of the difficulty in making the determination, but police investigators and university auditors said the embezzling probably occurred for as long as 10 years.
The internal audit began Oct. 16 after university officials received a photocopy of a $45 Spectator check cashed at Thriftway Super Market, and endorsed by Karwand.
All checks cashed inappropriately were done so at Thriftway, according to the police report.
Joseph Whelihan, co-owner of Thirftway, told police that Karwand had been cashing checks there for approximately 10 years.
Karwand, in a letter to the auditors, admitted cashing checks beginning in 1975 for job-related expenses and later also for personal use.
In his letter, which was included in the police report. Karwand said He
had been spending a great deal of his own money on "department expenses, trips, conferences, lunches for job candidates, etc. I (Karwand) felt I could no longer continue this so I diverted some funds and kept a slush fund.”
According to the letter, Karwand first cashed a small check so editors could buy art materials. Taking the money was easy, he wrote, and no one questioned it. Karwand said he did not use many checks until 1977 and then did so to help with family expenses.
“As my family grew and expenses grew. I could not meet their needs so more was diverted . with four kids in college, I just could not make it,” the letter said.
Karwand, whose salary was $24,170 annually, said he cleared out all the old accounts in August and threw them away.
When Judge Thomas Barland asked why the embezzlement was not noticed sooner, Eau Claire County District Attorney Rodney Zcmke said Karwand had "large control of the account."
Karwand sorted Spectator mail each morning and "anything that
looked like a check was separated, Betsy Davel, Spectator advertising manager, said. He deposited checks and was the only person who saw or did the newspaper's bookkeeping.
"There has not been a good internal audit of the account," Zemke said. "There was no way of knowing how much was coming in. The only way we could find out was by asking Spectator advertisers.”
On Dec. 8 Karwand returned $25,000 to the university and announced his intention to resign. On Dec. 21 he was sentenced. In a courtroom filled with many teary-eyed faculty and students, Barland stayed a three-year prison term and placed Karwand on probation for five years.
Barland imposed four conditions on Karwand's probation:
— He make restitution of all missing funds.
— He continue involvement In psychotherapy.
— He attempt to carry on some type of employment as long as his health permits.
— He spend some time in a community service program.Haug resigns after sex
In October, 1980, Frederick Haug was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and announced his resignation as dean of UW-Eau Claire's School of Arts and Sciences.
A year later Haug faced court proceedings in connection with a series of annoying phone calls that he allegedly made. In October of 1981 Haug pleaded not guilty to the charges that he made annoying phone calls, but on Jan. 12 he changed his plea to no contest and resigned from his position at the university.
Haug was charged for violating part of Chapter 947 of the Wisconsin statutes. The statutes say an individual is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor if a telephone call is made, "whether or not a conversation ensues, without disclosing his or her identity and with intent to abuse, threaten, or harass any person at the called number."
The misdemeanor offense carries a maximum of Si.000 fine or 90 days in jail.
According to the complaint, Haug made several phone calls to the Lapp residence on Oct. 1 to Oct. 9. He was allegedly seen making phone calls Oct. 9 by Altoona Police Chief David O'Donahoe after O'Donahoe
was informed of the calls. According to the complaint, O’Donahoe went to the Shopko mall where he saw Haug in the parking lot. On three separate occasions, O’Donahoe saw Haug dial a number on a pay phone and hang up soon after.
Haug was followed to London Square Mall where O'Donahoe saw him make two calls, then hang up immediately, the complaint stated. According to the complaint, Haug was identified at the mall by Wallace O'Neill, UW-Eau Claire's director of safety and security.
Phone calls to the Lapp residence had been monitored by Wisconsin Telephone Co. since late September, the complaint stated.
Lapp was a UW-Eau Claire speech instructor until 1980. Mrs. Lapp is an instructor in the Educational Opportunities Office.
Haug returned to the speech department in the fall semester after officially resigning as dean. The resignation followed Haug's no contest plea to charges of fourth-degree sexual assault. Haug was placed on two-years probation for the offenses in November of 1980.
A 1953 UW-Eau Claire graduate, Haug joined the faculty in 1965 and was appointed dean in 1975.O'Neill and Foerster
Security officers face five felony charges
UW-Eau Claire's director of Safety and Security and a safety and security officer were scheduled to go on trial in June in connection with a total of five felony charges.
The charges stem from a series of incidents that began Oct. 5, according to a criminal complaint filed Feb. 4.
Wallace O'Neill is charged with illegal entry and search. Instructing a member of his staff to falsify official reports, and entering a dwelling without the owner's consent. The first two charges are Class E felonies, punishable by a fine not to exceed $10,000 or imprisonment not to exceed two years or both. The third charge is a Class C felony, punishable by a fine not to exceed $10,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 10 years or both.
Gareth Foerster is charged with falsifying official reports and entering a dwelling without the owner's consent. The first is a class E felony, the second a Class C felony.
According to the complaint, the incidents began when the Safety and Security office contacted Scott Sieg Oct. 5 about material he had previously reported was stolen Sieg, a UW-Eau Claire freshman, said the material had been taken from his dormitory room.
The report says that O'Neill and Foerster told Sieg the stolen good were at a home owned by James Ward. They attempted to get a search warrant, but were told by Assistant District Attorney Daniel En-righ that there was not enough probable cause for a warrant.
The group went to the Ward home but were refused entry by an
unidentified man who an wered the door. The group then kept the home under surveillance, the report said, and eventually followed a vehicle away from the house.
When the group returned to the Ward home, O'Neill was in front of the house. By the time Student Security Officer Robert Schugarts reached the front porch, O'Neill was inside. O'Neil told Schugarts he had knocked on the door and it had come open, the report says.
The students were then instructed by O'Neill to go into the house and collect all the stolen items. Schugarts remained outside because he questioned the legality of entering the house.
According to the report, Foerster arrived at the house while the students were collecting the stolen goods. He assisted in the students' search of the premises.
That night, Foerster met with Sieg and two other students so they could "get their stories straight."
Foerster told the students to state that the wind had blown the door open at the Ward house and they had seen the stolen goods in the living room and retrieved them.
When O'Neill was interviewed for the complaint report, he said he "might have told the students to dummy up about how the house was entered."
He also said he might have told his subordinate officers how to write their reports of the incident.
When Foerster was interviewed for the complaint report, he said that O'Neill had told him to leave his (O'Neill's) name out of the original police report and state that no secu-
rity personnel were at the scene.
Neither O'Neill nor Foerster were suspended from their duties as a result of the charges. Chancellor Emily Hannah would not comment on the case.
An additional wrinkle came into the picture when Eau Claire County District Attorney Rodney Zcmke said he would not prosecute cases initiated by the two officers.
"My job is to make sure I do justice when I prosecute cases," Zemke said. "I cannot turn around and prosecute a case in which one of the witnesses involved is accused of a felony."
As the school year came to a close, both officers continued to work for safety and security, although limitations had been placed on their duties.
Hallatt investigated but charges not filed
An investigation into allegations of improprieties in the UW-Eau Claire housing office did not support filing criminal charges against Housing Director Douglas Hallatt. the Eau Claire County District Attorney's office announced in February, a month after it was announced that the Wisconsin lusticc Department was investigating hiring procedures in the housing office.
According to a press release issued by Zemke, "The issue arose when it was learned that Mrs. (Margaret) Hallatt was to receive $2,200 as payment for a period of time when she was not officially under contract to the university."
Mrs. Hallatt was a head resident at UW-Eau Claire's Towers Hall until Aug. 15, 1981. She was appointed to the post as assistant housing director
and started those duties Oct. 1. However, her contract called for her to receive retroactive pay at her head resident's salary for the period between Aug. 15 and Oct. 1, a time when she was not officially employed by the university.
The investigation concluded that the inclusion of the $2,200 payment in the contract was the result of mistakes and misunderstandings involved in writing up the contract.
"Later, this contract was rescinded and a new one drawn up with the language changed so that Mrs. Hallatt would not be paid for the period of lime that she was not working," the release said.
Larry Schnack. assistant vice chancellor, blamed the situation on minor errors and misunderstandings on the part of several administrators.
Reagan tries "New Federalism"
Defying the historic deficits in the national budget. President Ronald Reagan decided to gamble the nation's economy on a plan he called, "New Federalism." The program was proposed in January.
Basically, Reagan's New Federalism is a trade-off deal. The federal government would pay the entire bill for the Medicaid Program, while the states picked up the tab for welfare programs and food stamps. Reagan called his New Federalism "new and creative partnership" between the state governments and the federal government.
Target date for the New Federalism take-off would be in 1984, the same year as the next presidential election. The program would then run for ten years, and transfer eventually $47 billion dollars worth of Federal programs to the state level.
Just as the federal government faces increasing budget deficits, state governments are also finding times hard. And many of the states are not prepared to take on 14 more federal aid programs, all by themselves.
In 1984, the states would take over the welfare programs and food stamps. After that, plans would be made for the states to take over 43 smaller programs. At the same time the federal government would establish a $28 billion trust fund to support them. The complete turnback would end in 1988, and then the trust fund would eventually expire. At this point the states would be re-
sponsible for funding the programs on their own.
Local officials fear that when the state's gain responsibility for welfare programs they will hold down the costs, and the programs. And other states are worried about the disparity between state programs, worrying that a better welfare program in one state would encourage unemployed and needy persons to move to that state.
Another facet of Reagan's New Federalism is the concept of "Enterprise Zones." This would transfer special funds to depressed urban areas. States and cities would have to compete for the designation of having a portion of their city as an Enterprise Zone.
The gojls of the "Enterprise
Zone" program would be to encourage businesses to invest in the area. The program would also create neighborhood involvement in cleaning up and controlling crime in the area.
New Federalism is a complicated plan of rebalancing budgets and responsibilities. It is also appealing to Reagan's long-time pledge to return to state governments the responsibilities and powers they once held.
Chances appeared slim that Reagan's New Federalism would be enacted soon; public sentiment favors a "quick fix" to the nation's economic troubles. What New Federalism has already done is force politicians to consider the realignment of power between state and federal governments.Williams convicted of murder
In Atlanta this year, part of the mystery surrounding the deaths of 28 young blacks was solved in court. Wayne Williams was found guilty of murdering 27-year-old Nathaniel Cater, and 21-year-old Jimmy Ray Payne.
The trial lasted nine weeks, during which time the prosecution presented close to 700 exhibits of evidence. Testimony included "expert" opinion linking the characteristics of carpet fiber and dog hair found on the bodies of the two young men with Williams.
Williams was convicted on only circumstantial evidence, for the prosecution could not provide an eyewitness to either of the murders.
Williams was stopped after crossing the bridge over the Chattahoochee River. Police had just before that heard a "splash" from the river. Newsweek magazine said that from
The people of Poland "celebrated" Christmas in a state of siege after an army crackdown occured just two weeks before the holiday. The situation remained much the same into 1982 as Polish Premier Gen. Woj-ciech Jaruzelski continued the tough military stance that had been instituted to crush the free spirit of Solidarity, the independent trade union which spent the previous 17 months working for and achieving reform.
With the crackdown in mid-December came a night-time curfew, assemblies were banned, and identity checks on Polish citizens were ordered.
The government acted within hours after the union's national committee passed resolutions demanding democratic elections and a referendum on abolishing the Communist regime. As Solidarity members finished their meeting in Gdansk — Solidarity's birthplace — telex messages piled up warning of suspicious convoys of troups and re-
this point of evidence, the prosecution proceeded to portray Williams as a man who wanted to purify the black race by killing poor, black youths.
Judge Clarence Cooper sentenced Williams to two consecutive life terms in prison. Upon hearing the sentence. Williams again proclaimed his innocence.
Mid-way through the trial proceedings. the prosecution asked Judge Cooper to allow the jury to hear evidence linking Williams with the deaths of ten other black youths, even though Williams had not been charged with their murders. Assistant District Attorney Joseph Drolot said such evidence would show Williams followed a pattern. The judge allowed the evidence to be presented.
In his own defense, Williams took the stand. He told the court of his
serve callups throughout Poland and friendly militiamen warned that a nationwide raid was in the offing. An hour after their meeting adjourned, forces surrounded the hotel where the leaders were staying and the union headquarters.
Throughout Poland the reaction was one of horror, especially after Poles learned that the occupying forces were Polish and not Russian as had so long been expected.
The crackdown, while effective, carried with it disastrous implications for all sides in Poland. For Solidarity, 17 months of work and reform vanished in a few short hours. A union resistance, if an effective one could have been mounted, would have surely triggered the Soviet invasion that the people had feared most. Apparently realizing this aspect of the situation, Solidarity leader Lech Walesa sent out a letter to Solidarity supporters calling on them to meet the crackdown with passive resistance.
innocence. He said ho had not stopped or even slowed down when crossing the Chattahoochee bridge, the night he was stopped. He also denied allegations that he was a homosexual. Williams also said he had never met any of the victims, but that he felt "just as sorry for them."
Williams held his own during his cross examination, until the second day when the prosecuting attorney broke him down. Williams became enraged on the stand after the prosecution "needled" him under pressure.
Williams was described at that point as taking on a Jekyll and Hyde personality.
In the end, the 12-member jury, consisting of eight blacks and four whites, found Wayne Williams guilty of the two murders. Wayne Williams announced plans to appeal the decision.
Jaruzelski also faced an intense dilemma in which a Polish nationalist and distinguished military official was forced to brutalize his own countrymen. Jaruzelski's only consolation was that if he didn't do the job and quell the union's growing activism, the Soviets' would do it for him.
In the United States, reaction to the Polish government crackdown severely overshadowed detente and greatly chilled relations with the Soviet Union.
"The Soviet Union bears heavy and direct responsibilities for the repression in Poland," said President Ronald Reagan after imposing economic sanctions against Moscow. "By our actions, we expect to put powerful doubts in the minds of the Soviet and Polish leaders about this continued repression."
Administration officials conceded that the sanctions were rather tame. They were designed, said a spokesman, "to serve as important symbols and to provide leadership." The

tooDozier rescue: victory terrorism
Not since 1975 had Italy's police force rescued a Red Brigades kidnapping victim. By this standard, the rescue of United States Brigadier General James Dozier was a complete victory against terrorism in Italy-
Dozier was kidnapped from his home in Verona, Italy, and held for 42 days. It was the first time the Brigades had kidnapped a non-Italian.
The Red Brigades referred to Dozier, the deputy chief of staff for logistics and administration in NATO's Southern Command, as "the NATO Hangman" and as a "butcher."
The Red Brigades drove Dozier from Verona to Padua, Italy, 48 miles away. Once in Padua, they took him to No. 2 Via Pindemonte, a second floor apartment. It was there that Dozier spent the next 42 days.
The military general was forced to sit handcuffed to a cot underneath a pup tent. His captors kept him under the tent so he would not be able to describe his surroundings. They also clamped headphones to his ears and forced him to listen to loud rock music, which eventually caused
— suspending Soviet airline runs to the United Slates.
— closing the Soviet Purchasing Commission which places orders for U.S. non-agricultural exports.
— curtailing access to U.S. ports
— blocking exports of electronic equipment, computers and other high-technology materials.
— barring American firms from selling oil and gas equipment, such as pipe layers, to the Soviet Union.
— refusing to renew 11 U.S. Soviet exchange agreements on energy, space, science and technology
— postponing negotiations on a new long-term grain agreement to replace the pact that expires next Sept. 30.
The Soviets denied any participation in the crackdown and were ou-
traged at Reagan's announced sanctions. Soviet Foreign Minister Ad-drei Gromyko criticized U.S. "interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state," reported Tass, the Soviet Union's official news agency. "The Soviet Union is a great power which has never allowed and will never allow anvone to speak to it in the language of blackmail or diktat."
United States citizens responded to the crackdown with moral support and shipments of food to the Polish citizens. How effective the Reagan crackdown's sanctions and other forms of U.S. support could not be determined and as the year continued the Polish people, according to observors in Poland, continued to live with the discontent of the crackdown.
some hearing loss.
But other than the slight hearing loss, Dozier said he suffered no physical injuries, although he did lose 12 pounds.
Dozier's rescuers were a crack squad of the Italian police known as the Leatherheads.
Dozier's rescue resulted from a strict and well-coordinated plan. At about 11:30 a.m., construction crews began working outside the apartment where Dozier was being held.
■ ise distracted attention from the rescue attempt. Eighty plain-clothed police officers rushed people off the streets surrounding the apartment.
Soon after, a moving van pulled up in front of the building and the Italians commandos stormed the apartment.
The entire rescue lasted only 90 seconds, and left Dozier yelling, "wonderful," and "ok policel"
Dozier said after his release that he respected his Red Brigades captors. "They've a bunch of dedicated people. They are smart. They believe In what they are doing, and they are very serious about it," he said.
After a brief stay in a military hospital in Vicenza, Dozier returned to the United States for a short vacation. He then returned to his duties in the NATO Command before filling a permanent position in the United States.Smethells joins Voyager II scientists
After being launched four years ago and traveling billions of miles. Voyager II, an unmanned space probe, passed Saturn in late August.
Voyager II was helping to discredit the familiar words of the Star Trek television series introduction: "Space: The final frontier." Among the scientists at the Jet Propulsion laboratory in Pasadena, Calif — home of the mission — was UW-Eau Claire assistant professor of physics and astronomy William Smethells.
"I felt mostly delighted watching this kind of exploration. It's a great kick. Three thousand years ago Saturn was just a dot in the sky, and now we can send up something and take pictures . it’s kind of like an old dream finally being realized," said Smethells. who made the trip on a $495 curriculum-improvement grant.
Voyager II sent back 15,000 pictures during its "encounter period," the time in which the probe was near the planet and was capable of returning a photo every 144 sec-
onds, Smethells said.
The pictures were transmitted from the Voyager spacecraft by a television camera that was able to digitize the photographic images and send them to Earth from the 40-watt transmitter on board, Smethells said.
The delay time during Voyager's transmissions was about one hour and 25 minutes during the "encounter period,” which is the light time from Saturn to Earth. "That's why it had to be pre-programmed. There was a three-hour, round-trip delay," he said.
Smethells said the findings came in four areas:
• one of Saturn's moons. Isapetus, consists of 90 percent water-ice;
• there were not well-defined gaps between the planet-rings, since the photographs revealed no moons imbedded in the rings — a condition which would be necessary for the substantial gaps;
• the last ring of Saturn, the F-ring,
is not braided, as it appeared to be in Voyager I photographs;
• the new pictures of Saturn's stationary brown spot, similiar to Jupiter's red spot, will help scientists better understand the spots.
The probe also mad tape recordings via a plasma-wave experiment, which translated into audio the shock waves caused by charged particles in the solar wind striking the magnetosphere of Saturn, Smethells said.
Voyager II was almost destroyed when it apparently struck the part of the C-ring of Saturn which affected its transmissions.
"The disturbance was electrical, not mechanical," Smethells said. The probe will now continue its journey and is scheduled to reach Uranus in 1986 and Neptune in 1989.
"The history of mankind indicates that space, exploration always pays off if you're willing to be a little patient." Smethells said.
World leader in peace effort assassinated
Forty-five seconds of terror led to the death of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. On October of 1981, Sadat was reviewing a military parade with his vice president, Hosni Mubarak, and visiting dignitaries when he was gunned down by religious fa-natiev
The military parade was to commemorate the eighth anniversary of Sadat's surprise attack on Israel. The parade began with a procession of six fighter planes, which flew above the reviewing stand.
The jets led the way for a parade of tanks, solders and munitions. One of the military trucks left the parade route and pulled up in front of where Sadat was seated. Three men dressed in Egyptian military fatigues jumped from the back of the stand. Another attacker jumped from the cab of the truck, and threw a grenade into the stand.
The entire attack lasted forty-five seconds.
President Sadat lay on the floor, fatally wounded. His vice president.
friend, and eventual successor was next to him, slightly wounded. Other Egyptian citizens and foreign visitors were also wounded, some killed.
Sadat was quickly carried to a waiting helicopter, which was parked behind the reviewing stand, and taken to the Maadi Military Hospital. There, attempts to save the president's life failed.
President Reagan did not attend Sadat's funeral for security reasons, but America's three living former presidents did journey to Cairo. Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and Richard Nixon had all worked with Sadat to bring peace to the Middle East.
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin said his sorrow at Sadat's death went "beyond matters of state." Begin said he mourned Sadat's death "personally."
Because of religious law forbidding travel on the Sabbath, Begin had to travel to Cairo a day before the funeral, multiplying the security risks in the volatile region. Begin also
endured physical pain to travel to Sadat's funeral, due to an inflamed knee.
In the darkened landscape of Egypt after Sadat's death. Vice President Hosni Mubarak rose to lead the Egyptian people. Mubarak had been trained as an Air Force fighter pilot in Moscow, and there was some concern among Western nations that Egypt would return to its pro-Soviet tilt. But this was not to be the case.
In the months following Sadat's death, Mubarak made careful and calculated decisions. His first job was to keep the Egyptian people unified, to keep the post-Sadat government intact.
Sadat's assassins were tried in Egypt early this year. The men were found guilty and executed under Egyptian law.

121Gallery expanded to exhibit
by Cherie Phillips
The Foster Art Gallery serves a two-fold purpose, according to Janet Carson, acting chairperson of the art department. First, it is an educational facility for the art students, Carson said. Students can exhibit their work as well as study the work of other artists featured at the gallery.
The second purpose of the gallery is one of service to the people of Eau Claire and the surrounding area. "This gallery is one of the best gallery situations in Wisconsin," Carson said. "There is now a new facility. We've just added additional gallery space."
Exhibitors come from as far away as either coast because of the reputation Foster Art Gallery has gained. Displaying their work this year were such well-known artists as Chaim Gross and Deborah Remington.
Gross, from New York, opened the new section with his exhibit which ran from mid-October to early November. During the first week, he gave several presentations to students, faculty and community members.
Other visiting artists made presentations and gave slide shows to help UWEC art students.
The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Winter Carnival '82, sponsored by the University Activities Commission, Feb. 25-28 featured a variety of individual and team events for students to participate in.
Events included a downhill crosscountry ski maintenance clinic, snow sculpturing competition, broomball tournament, mattress races on the university hill, a volleyball and football tournament, and a tug-of-war contest.
Also, there was a free jazz concert, featuring Ron Lee and Michael Oliver; the band, "Riders on the Storm" performed Friday, Feb. 26 in Davies Center's Council Fire Room.»
Forensic team has i tradition of success

The UWEC forensic learn has a long tradition of success. But winning tournaments is not the only goal of its team members.
"Usually people think of our forensic team as a speaking competition team. However it is much more than that," said Rick Hudson, director of forensics. "The team promotes speaking and we travel to tournaments competing with several other schools. We are the only competitive academic activity on campus."
Hudson, a 1978 UWEC speech graduate, returned to UWEC this semester.
"At UWEC, the forensic activity promotes the importance of excellent oral communication," he said. "We promote several on-campus speaking events, especially with the high schools. We provide model speakers for the public speaking classroom, and offer judges for local speech contests, and provide assistant coaches for local speech programs.
Hudson was a speech teacher at the University of New Mexico and Iowa State University for the past few years.
"This is the best team I have ever worked with. We finished ninth in the United States last year.This year we will travel to seven states, covering 20,000 miles and attend 20 tournaments," he said.
In tournaments at the beginning of the '81-82 season, the team placed third at Iowa State University, first at North Dakota State University, first at Winona State University and first at Mankato State University. The tournament at Mankato was especially significant because UWEC
beat Bradley University, last year's national champion.
Each member of the team can earn up to four credits at one credit per semester, Hudson said, and members find intrinsic value behind the course's interdisciplinary knowledge.
One team member, Tracy Anderson, said forensics has helped her learn to speak in public as well as how to interact socially.
"It is important to me because it can help me adjust spending time between school and the team," she said.
Kim Young, another, said, "I joined the team because I can have many good experiences, have a lot of fun, meet plenty of good friends and gain practical experience in the world."
Senior Bob Boisvert said forensic experience can help people "be at ease speaking in front of people and to learn to keep up with current events." Although some current events will never be used practically, he said, they have "pure educational value."
Students in the forensic class and team generally choose a topic for their speech from something related to their majors, Hudson said, so they apply some of the learning from their major. And if they are asked to write a paper for their major, they will apply what they learned in for-
Moreover, he said, an important value in forensics is teaching students how to win and lose and how to cope — cope with the situation where people may evaluate their performance.
The team has 40 students, Hudson said, freshmen to seniors, in many majors. They enter the team in two areas: debate—argument based on a particular issue each year and individual speaking events—each individual chooses a particular topic and may compete in several events. Generally, 10 events are available.
The team was originated by Grace Walsh, the former director of forensics, in the mid-1940s, Hudson said. He said she " put Eau Claire on the map," in forensics, coaching the team for 36 years. Her teams won 12 Wisconsin state championships.
To illustrate how important forensics is to the students, Hudson said 500 past and present team members attended Grace Walsh's retirement banquet last year. Many of them came from as far away as Florida and California, and said, "What I am today is because of what I did in forensics."
Boisvert said, "I am sure I'll miss it after my graduation. You can find
J;reat enjoyment while you can learn rom it. I think that is why many people stick to it for a long time."Theater more than just an act
by Rosanne Pfielsticker
Webster's dictionary defines theater as "a dramatic performance or representation, a skillful depiction of character or of the conflict or interplay of persons," and finally, as "drama as an active art." Theater majors here at UWEC can easily identify with the last definition. As a matter of fact, to most theater majors, theater could be defined with two short words, "hard work."
When the audience settles down in the Riverside or Kjer theaters or in Gantner Concert Hall and the lights go up on another UWEC theater production, hours of careful planning and hard work have just begun to be realized. Hours of work go into lighting, sound, scenery, props and costumes for a production.
A single scene of a play or musical is the result of many hours of meticulous planning, thought, design and construction.
It usually takes from 40 to 50 people to get a show off the ground. This includes director, technicians, costumers, cast, publicity people and others. Many of these people are from university classes such as acting, stagecraft (building a set), lighting, costume design and set design.
Much of a theater major's learning time is spent outside of the classroom. Several classes require up to 60 hours of work outside of class each semester in such things as costumes, ushering, lighting and building a set.
Besides technical work, theater majors are required to see all shows put on by the department and write a critique for each.
To Laurie Zukaitis, a senior from Eau Claire, the hard work is all worth it in the end. Zukaitis, a comprehensive speech major with a theater emphasis, like many of her
colleagues was active in high school theater but finds university theater more demanding.
"It's hard work. It's terrible and we're all masochistic," she said. "But I love It!"
Zukaitis claims that much of the really hard work that goes into a UWEC production is never recognized by an audience because it is technical work.
"Technicians do a tremendous amount of work," Zukaitis said, "but they don't get the applause. They probably work the hardest of all."
Zukaitis is planning on teaching high school after graduation but eventually wants to get into children's theater.
"It (children's theater) is the best theater for an actor because the audience is so tough," she said.
Zukaitis said she has auditioned for several plays in which she really didn't want the part. Acting class requires that you audition often just for the practice of auditioning, she said.
Once a UWEC theater production has finished its run, the set is torn down in what is known as a "strike." What happens is that every nail must be taken out of every board and everything put away in its proper place.
"This is probably the most fun of a production because everyone who worked to get the play going gets together in a party mood and puts everything away to start over again for the next play," Zukaitis said.
The four theater productions of the 1981-82 season are the dramatic plays "An Evening's Frost," "Becket," "Othello," and the musical, "The Unsinkablc Molly Brown " The Children's Theater will do "Hansel and Cretel."
IKSpectator gives students experience
by Jeff Custer
Working for the Spectator was, well, an interesting experience, to say the least. To say the most, it was an incredible experience, one that I will never forget.
The semester started our pretty normally. Every Monday night, we had our usual editorial meeting where we discussed editorial ideas and what stands we planned to take. The arguments and discussions that took place were interesting. I felt I was learning quite a bit about people and the way they view different issues.
But after a while, after the novelty of being in a position of relative "power" on the paper wore off, ffound myself somewhat bored with the routine of it all. After all, if you've seen one film critique, student senate story, or sports story, you've seen them all. I found myself becoming very blase about the whole thing.
But then things began to happen. There was talk that the director of housing may have hired his wife as one of his assistants. It sounded like a good story, so a reporter got right on it. About the same time, we found that our advisor, Elwood Karwand, and our advertising account were being audited by the business office. Sounded fishy, but not much of a story yet, our editor said. Better just wait and see.
A couple of weeks passed. Our reporter was turning up some interesting things about the director of housing and his wife, and the director was none too pleased about it. He made some phone calls, telling us that we had better be careful about what we printed. I could feel that this was going to be a good story and probably a good issue.
The Wednesday before the issue was to come out, we received a telephone call from the Chancellor. She read to our editor a press release concerning a faculty member who had been arrested the year before for fourth degree sexual assault. It seems there was another warrant out for his arrest, this time involving some annoying phone calls he had allegedly been making. Wow, we thought, two controversial front page stories. What more could we want?
Whether we wanted more or not, we get it. About one hour later, we received another press release. It seems the business office had turned up some pretty interesting things. Our advisor had admitted in a letter to the Chancellor that he had committed some "improprieties" with Spectator advertising revenue.
The next day, our paper had a look to it reminiscent of a grocery store scandal sheet. I was amazed. Just the week before, I was complaining about the dullness of our newspaper, and how it failed to hold my interest. Now we were dealing with stories that had the potential to affect careers and lives.
I never quite felt the same about the job I did for the Spectator. I began to scrutinize everything I put into print. I began to realize how what I wrote could affect people and how they might react. As the Karwand story unfolded, and the amount of money involved and the consequences he faced became more apparent, I began to understand the care that had to be taken while commenting or reporting on a subject such as this.
Although the Spectator found itself in the middle of a huge ana ugly controversy that semester, I don't think I would have wanted to be anywhere else but where I was when it all happened. Being there and seeing it all happen and understanding how it happens is part of journalism. I don't think I could have learned anywhere else the things that my experiences on the Spectator taught me.

1Z7NOTA-Just one big creative
Top Frink Smoot often type poems for the publication; above: Considering ideas for a poem, Cindi Gerber gets that faraway look in her eyes.
by Frank Smoot
It's 20 minutes before two on a Friday morning and believe it or not it is dark outside. Hi, Frank Smoot here to tell you about NOT A.
NOTA is the campus creative arts magazine. There are a baker's dozen on our staff plus a few hangers-on, a few groupies, you know, followers of a movement. This dedicated, ambitious staff runs our little show.
Our show. We put out a magazine twice a year plus a broad sheet sometimes (a single-sheet flyer packed with poetry on one side and art on the flipside). We sponsor workshops and readings for students starring famous people who arc poets. We sponsor workshops and readings for students starring no one in particular — except students who are, In their particulars, there.
We have contests. Poetry contests, fiction contests and farm animal photo contests (excluding chickens for reasons we are all well aware of). Stuff like that.
But you know, friends, NOTA is more than that, a lot more. We have an office, 352 Hibbard, and in that office we sit, and we are friendly, and we try our best to judge literature and art (the literature and art you submit each October and April in hopes you'll get your stuff printed in NOTA and the literature of other
irrelevant but nonetheless important dead or famous people whose work we judge for the simple thrill of judging, the analytical skills it develops in us, training us for the real world, and in the interest of gaining knowledge by the interpretation of the presentation of objects — in this case poetry or fiction or art or generic food or phone calls meant for Barb Rollard. NOTA is a learning experience, and a service, don't forget).
I mean, where else on this campus can you get your poetry, prose, art and graphics (and a little of our own stuff) published in a creative arts magazine — especially one that tries so hard to preserve quality in an increasingly decadent world? Long before I came here, and probably sometime before you came here, NOTA took second place in a nation-wide contest for literary arts magazines. The next year, which may still be before you came here, it won first place.
But rest on our laurels, no .. We have limited the number of issues to gain a fuller, more organized magazine and give us more time to do some of the other stuff which NOTA does and which I've said something about someplace else.
It is so dark. Boy is it dark.

Every major has its horror story class. A horror story class is a required course which requires at least
150,000 hours of work each week but is worth only about .39 credits. In broadcast journalism that course is Radio-TV News Editing.
Sounds innocuous enough, doesn't it? However, "Radio-TV News Editing" translates into "putting together Update News" which translates into "mega-hours of work." It takes only one week of Update News for the student to accept his or her new status — indentured servant.
Update News is a television news show taped twice a week and broadcast to the campus and the city via the public access channel. All of the community reporting is handled by members of the class, as is the writing, editing, anchoring and other aspects of the program. The result is, in some people's opinions, the most comprehensive coverage in the community.
To the student, Update becomes a constant battle to keep up on community developments... and still manage to pass any other class for that semester. If you manage an "A" in Update it means you punted all your other courses and you will have a .03 G.P.A. In Update News, there are no winners, only surivors.
Members of the class make no claims of infallibility. Mistakes are made but the practical experience gained is invaluable. That fact exemplifies itself in the high placement rates for Update survivors. The only drawback is the number of people who view a mistake. If you mess up in Chemistry 103, no one knows. If you mess up in Update all of Eau Claire could know.
"Hey Bob, I saw you on TV last night. You really screwed up!"
The only salvation is that, in reality, only 11 people actually watch Cable 8, and 10 of them are your classmates.
"Mega-hours" of work go into Update News
Anchorper om Bob Bohvert and Vkk» Griffith teU their viewers the news of the day.
The head honcho of Update News is the energetic and electric Henry Lippold, fondly referred to as "H.L." (In Update there are no names, only initials. ) H.L. has an energy level so great that you'd swear he's going to supernova at any second.
You quickly develop a good, healthy respect for H.L. since telling him you missed a story is only slightly safer than telling an alligator he missed his supper. With an alligator, you'd likely be devoured. With Henry, you only feel like you've been devoured. The result, though, is an understanding of the techniques and responsibilities of broadcast journalism. When you complete Ra-
dio-TV News Editing, you are just about as prepared as you can be for the infamous "real world."
When the semester draws to a close, the student has gained the experience necessary to give him or her firm footing in the broadcast field. No matter how hard you try to fight it — although wisely most don't — you wind up learning a great deal. Unfortunately you can also end up calling all your friends by their initials.
For Update News, I'm B.B.
129Student Senate tries new ideas
by Deb Bluem
It was a year not unlike any other in the senate. The Student Senate.
Issues, both major and minor, were discussed. Actions were taken on the issues considered most relevant. Senators resigned and were promptly replaced. Budget time came and went but not without some questions.
Throughout the year, the senate dealt with issues including concerts, instructor-course evaluation books, United Council and beer in Davies Center.
Although the issue of concerts on campus seems to be rehashed every year, this year the senate brought some unusual attention to the issue. At an October meeting, 19 senators "went Hawaiian" to protest administration decisions banning big-name rock groups from performing atUWEC. The senators wore Hawaiian shirts and leis, drank Hawaiian Punch and discussed music.
Acting on the protests, the senate voted to form an ad hoc committee to work with the administration in simplifying procedures to contract concerts and improve arena safety precautions. These were the administration's main concerns.
The idea to "go Hawaiian" was derived from an earlier Spectator editorial cartoon on the subject. Student Senate President Tami Noren, said.
The senate also approved funding for an instructor-course evaluation book designed to help students about the quality of courses and in-

structors. The books, which cost about $1,784, were an experiment for the spring semester, Noren said.
Information for the books was gathered through a survey mailed to all UWEC students. Response was limited but adequate, Noren said. Only 3,000 books were available on a first come, first serve basis during the registration period. Books were also available for use only in the reserve library, Schofield 130 and the arena.
Early in the fall, the senate voted to make the Escort Service a committee, Vice President Frank Smoot said. When the service was begun in 1980, it was just a van service for women. In December, it was expanded to include such things as video programs on rape and infor-
mation tables to sell rape whistles and to distribute information, he said.
At the first senate meeting of the 1981-82 school year, student Vice President Frank Pacetti announced his resignation for academic reasons. After an election within the senate, Smoot was elected vice president for the remaining term. Pacetti was elected in the spring semester of 1981, running with Noren.
A referendum that would have allowed a study of the feasibility of serving beer in Davies Center was defeated, 406-428, in the fall senate elections. A two-thirds majority was needed for passage.
In the same election, students again voted against a referendum proposing that UWEC become a member of United Council, a student lobbying organization. If passed, the referendum would have required a mandatory fee of 50 cents per student, per semester. UWEC was the only UW school not participating in the organization last year.
After much deliberation, a budget was slated by the senate.
"The budget always causes concern," Noren said," because there is not that much money to go around."
Appeals to allocations were made in December and the entire budget was submitted to the senate for approval in January.

listeners a choice
Located in the Fine Arts building, WUEC-FM is the student operated university radio station that serves not only UWEC, but the community of Eau Claire and the surrounding vicinity. With a power of 740 watts, WUEC can reach areas as far as 50 miles away.
WUEC is run exclusively by students with the assistance of faculty adviser Robert Bailey. The staff consists of nine executive directors and some 40 volunteer members. All are eligible for one credit per semester. These members serve a variety of functions from disc jockeys to news and sports reporters to program producers and production assistants to promotion personnel.
WUEC is located on the FM band at 89.7 on the dial. The hours of operation during the school year run from noon to 2 a.m. Monday
through Saturday with Sunday broadcasts from noon to midnight. WUEC also operates during the summer months from 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Programming on WUEC covers a wide and varied range of areas. Daylight hours offer light, contemporary music while late night hours present
album rock. WUEC also broadcasts classical music during the week and jazz on Sunday evening. A diverse assortment of informational programs is offered during evening hours, as well as a number of news and sports broadcasts throughout the day.
WUEC also presents special programs such as local, state and national election coverage and Blugold home basketball and baseball games.
WUEC serves a dual function. While offering the broadcast student actual on air experience, it also presents to the Eau Claire vicinity a wide range of programming and an "alternative" to the others.
TV-10 offers real-life training
by Kevin Voit
"Cameras one and two ready?"
"Is technician ready?"
"Assistant director ready?"
"O.K. roll tape and let me know when we are in."
It's Donna Leonard who's in charge. Two months ago she didn't know an SEG (special effects generator) from an EKG. Today she is at the controls of the SEG, directing "Wing Feud," one of the studio's most complicated shows.
"Vann really hit that hole well and picked up a quick six yards on that play," reports Craig Handel, another first-year staff member. He tries to read the number on the mud-covered jersey of the UWEC player who has been hurt. Behind the barely filled stands of Carson Park is some of the rest of the crew. Gary Kam-phuls and Scott Anderson direct the football game crouched in a van eating their lunch of doughnuts and Coke.
"Good evening. I'm Katie McReynolds and tonight on 'Focus News the Tuesday Edition,' we'll look at the possibility of increased tuition for next year, Katie Wester-lund will update world, national, state and local news, Moira Fitzgerald will be talking with Frank Smoot and Tom Morgan will have a report on all the Blugold action from this weekend. Stay with us ..."
These are examples that indicate the variety of shows TV-10, the residence hall cable, produces. From its five-room studio are cablecast over 25 hours of programs per week, well over 500 hours per semester. Of these shows, about 80 percent are produced by TV-10.
Its beginnings, however, were meager.
The idea of having a station solely for student use was first proposed in the mid 70s, when the cable system was also being considered for the dorms. The idea was given the go-ahead and a special channel, channel 10. From that point the station grew. From a single camera, monitor and video tape recorder system the studio has expanded to a four camera, three VTR, two VHS system with nearly complete remote abilities. The studio also boasts a unique exact-frame editing system, a 50-title tape library of popular movies, and a character generator, a system that allows printed messages to be cablecast during non-programming hours. TV-10 has all the basic components of any local television station.

stations. However, few are like TV-10. Most campus television stations are run through the journalism or speech departments. The students are usually under close supervision of an instructor. On the other hand TV-10 is totally student-run and
Erides itself on being the first of its ind in the nation. It has an adviser, Charles Major, assistant director of housing, but his role involves helping the staff improve the studio. The staff is headed by a general director and other student assistants. For example, one position in the staff is game show coordinator who recruits contestants for TV-10's game shows such as "Wing Feud" and "The Roommate Game."
TV-10's productions involve more than just game shows. Also produced as a twice-weekly news shows, an exercise show, a cooking show, Blugold football and basketball coverage, a movie critique show and special events such as talent shows, the Homecoming parade and a charity telethon.
Exactly what motivates students to become involved in TV-10 varies from staff member to staff member. Some are not even journalism or speech majors. Mike Tomsyck, a junior business major, has been involved with the studio for three years and has held the positions of programmer, general director and studio engineer. Mike's interest stems from his involvement with audio-visual equipment in high
"We can take (our equipment) out and do all sorts of sporting events, special shows, etc." he said. "Our equipment is good enough to allow students to learn basic production techniques. We allow all students to experiment and get the feel of any equipment they wish."
fCampus scouts aid area troops
by Lori McNeely
Girl scouting doesn't end after high school — at least not at this university. In 1981 the Campus Girl Scouts of UWEC was formed.
Carole Halberg, advisor of the group, and assistant director of development at UWEC, said girl scouts can form a group on any campus when sufficient numbers of people are interested. Those interested must then follow university regulations to make it an official organization.
So far Campus Girl Scouts has 17 members. Most of them have been involved in girl scouting since second grade, but Rosemary Cashel, president, said membership is open to any university student regardless of prior experience.
Campus Girl Scouts is primarily a service organization to younger troops in the community. The group keeps a file of the members' interests and capabilities. Then when a need in a local group arises, the file is checked to see if any of the members can be of service. For example.
members have assisted with local campouts and hiking trips and in organizing meetings and activities.
In October the group hosted a Girl Scout Exchange Program at Grace Lutheran Church. They have also hosted Christmas parties and other special events. During National Girl Scout Week they served as the liaison between local troops and the university to possibly arrange for use of campus facilities. In January they assisted a local troop in an overnight campout.
Cashel said there is a sense of self-satisfaction from knowing that you're making someone else's job easier. She said her involvement in Campus Girl Scouts has been "a good time." It has given her the chance to share universal experiences with other members as well as younger troops.
Vice President Joan Grcnell, senior, said she joined the group because camping with the younger troops is an enjoyable way to help them out. She said when younger
girl scouts see college students still involved in scouting it encourages them to keep on with the group. As a special education major Grcnell enjoys the experience of working with students in an environment other than the classroom. As vice president she helps the president run meetings, plan and organize activities, and call and inform other members. She said service to the group can conveniently be planned around class schedules.
Cathy Milkie, sophomore, joined Campus Girl Scouts as a freshman. She said she enjoys meeting new people and working with kids.
Jean Jendusa, sophomore, also joined as a freshman. She's interested in a career in public relations and says her involvement in Campus Girl Scouts has given her much experience in that field of work. As a girl scout she has done much traveling, met many people, planned, organized and reserved rooms for speakers and events. She said continuing membership in girl scouts is good because it makes one more eligible for job opportunities with the organization.
Halberg said that there are over 300 girl scout councils in the United States and each one employs professional people. Long-time membership increases eligibility for such a job.
Members pay S3 in dues each year and raise money for activities by selling cookies and participating in the Community Club Award sponsored by the Eau Claire Leader Telegram.
134Circle K helps members and community
by Lori McNcely
If you are interested in meeting and helping people, you might want to join Circle K Club. The UWEC Circle K Club with its 63 members is the largest in the Wisconsin and Upper Michigan district.
President Gary Jaroz, a senior accounting major, said the goal of the club is service to the community. Jaroz said such service has given him the satisfaction that comes from helping people.
Circle K has helped sponsor many Special Olympics activities such as a rockathon and bowling tournament. They also helped with the Halloween party for Kinship at the YMCA.
Once a month Circle K replaces its regular meeting with a program at Mount Washington Nursing Home. At the nursing home they do such things as sing, play piano, square dance and show old movies.
The club sponsors a raffle each year at which they raise funds for activities. Last year Circle K raffled off a watcrbed and a microwave oven. Additional funds come from the Eau Claire Kiwanis Club, which sponsors Circle K as well as other "K family" clubs. Members pay $5 each in dues each semester.
The only qualification for joining Circle K is that you be a university student. Jaroz has been a member since it started in 1978 and said the club has benefitted him in many ways. He said it has helped him to develop leadership skills and speaking ability, and to better accept and delegate responsibility.
Joan Scaffidi, sophomore, joined Circle K this fall. She got into the club because "it seemed like a lot of fun, at the first meeting I went to the people were so friendly." She said Circle K is different than many other
clubs because "its purpose is to help people rather than just plan parties."
Debbie Sands, sophomore, also joined Circle K this fall. She said, "It's a good group and they have many worthwhile activities."
Jaroz said Circle K has several committees which members may belong, depending upon their personal needs or interests. He pointed out that besides offering services to the community, an important part of being involved in the club is that it helps satisfy its members needs.

The number of 'Housing Available' and 'Housing Wanted' cards on the bulletin boards in Davies Center is evidence of the large amount of students involved in off-campus housing.
Students who feel they "can't take it in the dorms any more" may opt for the "freedom" of off-campus life. However, there are a new set of
problems they must face.
Many students, approximately 400 to 500 each semester, are going to the Student Tenant Service for assistance. The service helps students look for off-campus housing, inspect prospective housing and understand the lease.
Andy Howard, STS chairman, said it is important that students talk to their landlord first if a problem arises. If this does not solve the problem, tenants should go to STS.
With the increase in landlord-tenant problems, STS has formulated an organized system for dealing with these problems. The process is initiated when the tenant fills out a login sheet which serves as a record of all transactions between the tenant and STS. The problem is recorded in detail on the log-in sheet and STS sends a letter to the landlord saying that STS has been contacted by his tenant. STS has over 200 landlards represented on file.
If the problem cannot be solved by STS, the student is referred to the Eau Claire City-County Health Department, Consumer Protection Agency or Legel Services, depending upon the nature of the problem.
According to Howard, most problems fall into three categories: maintenance, security deposits and leases.
Many of the maintenance problems deal with landlords who do not make necessary repairs. Sometimes problems overlap, many times there is a discrepancy on the definition of "normal wear and tear" and a landlord will retain the security deposit. The best way to prevent problems is to understand the terms of the lease.
The log-in system was started in cooperation with the Eau Claire Apartment Association which represents about 50 percent of the total units in Eau Claire (approximately 2,500 to 3,000).
138Living at home not all inconveniences
by Kathy Kistner
If my college friends could see me now. My jeans are older than the ones I wore to school today and my jacket has a broken zipper. I've got hay in my hair, manure on my boots and a wet cheek where one of the calves just kissed me.
No, I'm not a farm hand, I'm just doing chores at home in rural Elk Mound. (I know, "Where's that? ")
Living at home while attending college does have its advantages. I get along great with my roommate (me), my laundry is done for me and room and board is free. "Moving in" to go to school was one of the easiest things I've ever done — I walked across the footbridge.
The best thing about the situation is that you can "get away" from one world by seeking refuge in the other. When it's hot and school is a drag, there's nothing like going home and taking a walk in the woods. When everyone at home gets on your case you can go the "U", sit in the Rlugold and talk to a friend.
However, driving back and forth isn't always a barrel of laughs. Sometimes I think Eau Claire is a commune for the world's rotten drivers. Language uttered from my lips between home and the campus isn't the most cultured, much less polite. Cod and grandma wouldn't approve.
Winter driving is the worst. The country roads get quite slippery. Of course if it gets too bad, it's a good excuse to take the day off.
Another advantage of living at home is the chance to have a pet. Even though Barney's a smart dog, I don't think anyone would welcome him to UWEC. But he's probably do more justice to an Eau Claire sweatshirt than some people I've seen wearing them.
One of the biggest disadvantages of living at home during the semester is that I cannot escape my brothers — who incidcntly happen to be twins. It isn't double fun, it's double headaches. Why do teenage boys have to be so revolting? When they answer the phone they harass the caller for twenty minutes before I find out it's for me. When a guy
comes to get me for a date, they belch, offer him a "chew," tell him the last guy's car was nicer and ask him what he sees in their fat sister. They have also been known to move the man's car to the other side of the house so he can't find it when it's time to leave. I would definitely have more friends if it were not for the "animals" and I don't mean Barney.
Studying is easier to do in the library on campus. At home I have to go into exile or I find myself watch-
ing television with the rest of the family.
Since I still live at home I can stay in touch with high school friends and babysit my "regulars."
Actually I enjoy living at home, even the commuting. Granted, I might have more free time if I lived on campus, maybe even more fun. But those cows would get awfully lonely. What would they do without me?
New pals, no privacy
by Beth Wagner
The 10 dorms at UWEC house approximately 3,600 students. Each dorm resident pays $790 yearly for the privilege.
"The dorms are stepping stones from the family to independence," Director of Housing Douglas Hallatt said. "They're a means of meeting people."
Both students and administrators cite convenience and a friendly atmosphere as the main advantages to the dorms, while a lack of privacy seems to be the chief disadvantage.
Junior Tom Morgan supports the visitation rule (in which students are limited to the times they can be in certain areas of the dorms) but considers the escort rule (in which students of the opposite sex must be escorted in certain areas inconvenient.
One Resident Assistant (RA) oversees each dorm wing, with head and associate head residents supervising them.
Creating a living environment, enforcing rules, setting up social functions and counseling are major duties of an RA, said sophomore RA Sharon Nadeau of Oak Ridge Hall.
"Being an RA is a way to meet people, handle problems and deal with the students, administration and other RA's," she said. "It's a challenge to accept responsibility."
"They are either too lenient or not enough," Morgan said in reference to RAs. "But, overall I'd say that the RAs are a necessity and they're doing a good iob."
Both students and administrators decide how student fees are spent, Hallatt said. The United Dorm Council and the Dorm Improvement Committee, as well as administrative staff make recommendations and decisions regularly, he said.
Since Hallatt became director in 1970, several changes have been made. Rooms have been improved, computers have been added and TV 10 (the campus station) has been established, he said.
"The objectives we had then were by and large filled," he said. "We hope to progress in terms of additional facilities such as a health spa and more housing for married students and single parents with children."
140Students learn to
by Steve Todd
More than 7,000 UWEC students live off-campus, either in some kind of private home or student apartment building.
Living in a student apartment, sharing a place with several others, is quite an interesting experience. Let's face it, there's more to living off-campus than just having further to walk to school in the morning. Off-campus living brings with it certain responsibilities and problems.
1) Keeping the house apartment clean. Dust collects quickly, even without eight college students helping add to the mess. Old newspapers, magazines and books scattered about can all turn a neat living room into a disaster area. Someone has to clean up, and you can't always count on a roommate.
2) Bills—lots of them. There's the telephone bill, the electric bill, heat bill and the HBO bill. They add up to a substantial amount of bucks. At least each one is divided several ways.
3) Cooking. Some people enjoy cooking, others simply try hard, hoping everything turns out right. I've survived on my cooking for four years now, so I must be doing something right. You wouldn't believe the number of different TV dinners that
are on the market.
4) Following hand-in-hand with cooking is the dishwashing rotation. Dishes pile up quickly, and some kind of neatly organized dishwashing schedule helps even out the chores. One warning: Roommates must adhere to the dish schedule for it to be effective, though. Otherwise, dishes pile up quicker than overdue assignments.
5) Is it possible to find a place to study in a house you share with seven others? The main advantage to a large house is that there is almost always some dark corner or room
hidden away from the noise of your roommates, where you can comfortably curl up with your studies.
6) Television. Here's where it is best to be strict. Sunday afternoon means football games. Non-football fanatics—find somewhere else to spend the day.
7) Finally, there's the problem of the 12-month lease. When a person is scheduled to graduate in December, how can he find someone to take his place as a rent-paying member of the apartment? By the way, is there anyone who needs a place to live second semester?

The men's track and field teams highlighted their 1981 season with a third place finish at the Wisconsin State University Conference indoor meet, their highest indoor conference finish ever.
Junior Dan Stack led the Blugolds by winning the 2- mile run in 9:15:02 and by taking second in the 3- mile in 14:13:18.
Also adding seconds for the Blugolds at the meet were Jerry Hansen in the shot put with a heave of 52'9 Vi", Jeff Olson in the 600 yard dash with a time of 1:14:7 and the mile relay team of Olson, Paul Hess, Randy Thomas and Greg Gilbert with a time of 3:30:4.
The Blugolds were less successful at the WSUC outdoor championships, finishing sixth. Stack again starred with seconds in the 5,000 meter run and 3,000 meter steeplechase, just edging out teammate Dean Quigley.
Seconds by Hansen and Dan Hancock in the shot put and long jump, respectively, were also excellent performances.
Stack and Hansen were voted by their teammates as the Most Valuable Track and Field performers, respectively.
Juniors Steve Eckley and Bryan Peterson were named Most Improved.
Senior Greg Gilbert was awarded the coveted Mr. Spirit award, for "constantly displaying 100 percent preparation in both practice and contest toward extra performance," nine-year Blugold coach Bill Meiser said.
Stack and Eckley were elected captains for 1982 and Meiser announced that 25 members were awarded letters.
Gilbert said that the highlight of his track career was competing in the NAIA indoor national meet in past years as part of the mile relay team.
Hess said the highlight of the season was watching sophomore Tom Gilgenbach, the 'Iron Man," run the 3,000 meter steeplechase just after having run the 10,000 meter race.
Gilgenbach, in turn, said the highlight of his season was the infamous annual track and field banquet and freshman Doug Dorn's performance there.
146Track team rewrites record book
by Sandy Dorn
How did the UWEC women's track team jump from 11th place in the indoor and sixth place in the outdoor WWIAC meets last year to the runnerup positions this year?
Maybe the coaching techniques of first-year head coach Marilyn Skriv-seth were the deciding factors.
"We ran high intensity, high quality practices," Skrivseth said. "The runners were constantly pushing each other during every practice."
Or maybe rookie assistant coach Beth Bonner made the difference.
"Bonner could be coaching at the Olympic level with no problem," said freshman Amy Klee. "She definitely turned the track team around."
"She played a dynamic role," Skrivseth said of Bonner, who is now coaching at St. Olaf. "Our whole
program was based on her."
Or maybe the team's youth was the key. Of the 12 individuals who contributed points in the conference outdoor meet, all but one will be back for the 1981-82 season.
"We received a lot of talented freshman," Skrivseth said. "We thought we would close the gap, but we never thought we would close it by that much."
Skrivseth called it "the team that rewrote the record book." After erasing every possible indoor record, the Blugolds broke 16 of a possible 21 school outdoor records. The team amassed a 55-5 indoor record and 33-2 record for an overall season mark of 88-7.
Blugold outdoor conference champions were senior Julie Pankow in the 100-meter hurdles, Klee in the
400-meter hurdles and sophomore April Gray in the javelin. Klee and Gray set conference records at the WWIAC Outdoor Track Field Championships in May at Eau Claire.
Indoor champions were Pankow, who broke the conference record for the 60-yeard hurdles, and Klee in the 600-yard run.
UW-La Crosse, the conference powerhouse, won both conference meets over UWEC by comfortable margins.
Skrivseth said that the successful year will help the team set new, higher goals.
"It was a good year for them to realize their capabilities," she said. "I hope they can build on them, especially those with conference championships."

1477-9 mark fails to reflect potential
by Beth Wagner
Head baseball coach Glenn Meidl and 25 ball players were the team to beat going into the 1981 spring season.
Coming to Eau Claire with an expertise in athletic training and no previous coaching experience, Meidl led the team to the conference championship in his second year.
"My goal for my third and final season was to win the division championship and play against Oshkosh, the top program in the state," the coach said.
But it didn't turn out that way. UWEC finished third in the Northern Division with a 10-19 season record and a 7-9 conference record.
"Our record really didn't show the capabilities of our team," All-Conference second baseman Dave Guite said.
"We didn't have a good year record-wise," All-Conference third
baseman Kevin Griswold said, "but we all improved and we all had a good time."
The Blugolds had several stolen bases, good power, adequate pitching and excellent fielding, but didn't come through with clutch hits, Meidl said. They stumbled against teams they shouldn't have, and that's something championship teams don't do, he said.
"We had a high level of dedication and enthusiasm," the third-year coach said.
"Out of adversity, we had a good situation develop," Meidl said, referring to Griswold's replacement of injured infielder Jim Silverthorn at the beginning of the season.
"I set three goals for myself," Griswold said. "I was going to go out and give it my best, I wasn't going to complain and I was going to give it totally to God."
"The past few years we've had a
lot of individual talent. This year I expect there will be more of a team effort."
The 1982 season marks the start of Steve Carson's job as head coach for the team. Carson was assistant coach for the Blugolds at the beginning of the 1981 season but left in April to accept a full-time position. He returned to UWEC when a full-time position was offered.
"Carson is an excellent coach," senior Guite commented.
"Carson's tough," Griswold said. "We're young and he's going to develop us as a team."
"It (three years of coaching the Blugolds) was a very gratifying experience," Meidl said. "We changed it from glorified recreation to a program that's respected. I'll miss the fun part of it — close contact with the guys and those gut-wrenching decisions."

by Mary Fischer and Kathryn Hall
Many UWEC students spent spring break in Florida, but not all were there for just a vacation. The men's tennis team used the week to warm up for another Wisconsin State University Conference championship. The team took on five top schools from the south in dual meets and won only one of those, but it was good competition for the team, junior Ken Cychosz said.
"Playing in Florida really helped the team warm up to the season," he said. "Almost everyone down here is pretty good."
Once back in Wisconsin, the team got back on the winning track, and extended its conference dual meet record to 47 straight wins since 1975. Coach Bob Scott, in his 13th year at UWEC, credited the record and
team's success to great depth.
"Our success on winning the conference was on the depth of the team," he said. "We had seven very strong men and you need that depth to win team championships.
Cychosz, Jay Lewis and Tom All-wardt were individual champions, with Dave Crowley and Mark Hansen runners-up, while Hans Galleur at the no. 1 slot placed third in the tournament. The doubles team of Crowley Lewis and Hansen lsaac Triplett also won conference crowns. The conference title was Eau Claire's sixth in as many years.
The conference title was not easily won, Scott said. "The competition was moderately tough," he said. "Oshkosh, La Crosse and Whitewater put up the biggest

fight." Oshkosh finished second, nine points behind the Blugolds in the conference meet with Whitewater third.
The Blugolds as conference champions were also awarded the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics District 14 championship, and qualified for the NAIA Nationals. At the openflight national tournament the Blugolds finished 15th of 46 teams with nine points. It was Eau Claire's seventh trip to the nationals, and the team's second highest finish. Scott was pleased with both team and individual performances at the national meet.
"Everyone played well at the NAIA," he said. "They each played to their potential."

by Marty Hendricks
There were many highlights in the UWEC soccer club's season last fall: an impressive 7-3-1 record, five consecutive victories during one stretch, forward Orlin Stcner's club record of 11 goals and a tough 2-0 loss to UW-Creen Bay in a snowstorm in the season finale Oct. 24.
But to coach Karl Andresen, the highlight that stands out above the rest was winning back-to-back tournaments in October. The Blugolds beat UW-Stevens Point and UW-Stout by 5-3 scores to win the Chancellors Cup tournament in La Crosse for the second straight year. Eau Claire then captured the UW Stevens Piont Invitational the next weekend with a 2-1 win over Stevens Point after defeating the University of Wisconsin junior varsity 3-0 in the semifinal.
"We are particularly proud of winning two consecutive tournaments," Andresen said. "This was a good a team as we have ever had."
Stener, a senior from St. Paul, and co-captain Steve Manning, a senior from Minnetonka, spearheaded a Blugold attack that tied a club record with 29 team goals. Stencr's scoring and improved play from an injury-riddled season last year earned him Most Valuable Player and Best Striker honors. He also tied Manning's record for most goals in a single game with four in UWEC's 9-0 rout of Stout.
Co-Best Midfielders Ron Lien, a senior from Hopkins, and jim Dyde, an exchange student from England, provided a strong link between the offense and defense. Lien scored four goals and set up his teammates with his passing, Andresen said, while Dyde was noted for his scrap-rdworki
"The Blugold defense was strong and without a weakness," Andresen said. Anchoring the fullback line were Cary Wicker, stopper Marty Hendricks, Jim Shepard and co-cap-tain Fred Mathys. Shepard who switched from the midfield to defense halfway through the season, was named Most Improved Player.
Early season losses to the University of Minnesota and Bethany Lutheran-two Minnesota soccer powers-—were beneficial to the Blugolds in their five-game win streak.
"The experience of playing against two skilled, well-trained soccer teams helped us in the long run," Andresen said, "We then did very well against teams of our own caliber."

Andresen said Eau Claire's 3-0 win over the University of Wisconsin junior varsity was impressive because they are part of a major college soccer program. The Badger varsity finished with a 15-2-2 mark and lost in the first round of the NCAA Tour-namnet to No. 1-rated Indiana.
The season's final game against arch-rival UW-Creen Bay junior varsity was a memorable one. The Blugolds lost a tough, evenly fought game 2-0 in a snowstorm that covered the field with two inches of snow.
Andresen is optimistic about the upcoming spring and fall seasons for the Blugolds, wno sport a 37-17-3 record in seven semesters of play.
"We will sorely miss Stener, Manning and Dyde. They were three of our best players," he said. "But we still have a lot of people coming back."UWEC Go! Go! Go! Go! . .

by Beth Wagner
With a new coach, a converted runner from the track team and a positive attitude, the UWEC women's cross country team ran a strong season and placed ninth in the 1981 national meet.
Sophomore Deanna Marchello, placing 15th in the AIAW Division III National Cross Country Meet, won All-American honors after her first season of cross country. Marchello was a track runner in high school and in her first year at Eau Claire. She and junior Jenny Arneson led the team to a 40-18 season record.
"Jenny was a key for us in that she was the one athlete who helped a lot of kids out," Coach Kirk Elias said. "She was a real leader in that people knew they could depend on her."
"I improved a lot from the beginning of the year," Marchello said. "But, there was really no number one runner because all of us were so close in times."
Elias, in his first year at Eau Claire, brought a positive attitude with him when he came from Minnesota .
"I came in and changed things around a lot from last year," he said. "But, they (the runners) did the work.
"We tried to have fun this year. That's the main thing I concentrated on. My skill is in listening to people and understanding what they're going through.
"They learned how to think during a race. They could constantly
evaluate and change. Cross country is a very strategic running event."
Elias was dealing with a successful team when he began coaching the Blugolds. Under Coach Beth Bonner, Eau Claire finished 14th in the nationals.
"This year is not as competitive among team players," veteran Arneson said. "The two coaches have different techniques and training methods. Both systems worked at the time they were being used.
"He (Elias) brought in a new program and a new attitude. We could enjoy our training more, while still doing well. Every workout was different. We always ran in differnt places and found new routes to take."
"Because he was so attuned to everybody's progress, he gave us a lot of confidence," senior Mary Fischbach said. "That was reflected in the way he coached us."
Both the coach and team members attributed their success to depth, as well as a change in attitude.
"We improved dramatically in our third through seventh placings," Elias said." Ultimately, these are sometimes more important than our first and second placings."
"We have a lot oi depth," Arneson said, who finished 30th overall in the nationals. "Most people are at about the same ability, though some people have a speed advantage."
"We worked together, had a lot
of team spirit and had talent," freshman Sue Altheon said.
With two winning seasons behind them, the Blugolds expect to do well next year also.
"I tnink we can only keep getting better," Arneson said. "If we train more consistently during the summer, we'll have more miles and we'll improve. New freshman will help too."
"We'll improve next year and be even closer to La Crosse (Wisconsin’s top team)," Marchello said.
"The team will be stronger because of a stronger base," Fischbach said.
"Barring injury and illness, we should be in the top 10 (in the nation) if we have an average season," Elias said. "We could be in the top six if we have a good season."
According to the new head coach, few changes will be made for next year.
"Do you tamper with success?" he asked.

by Dan Cooper
The UWEC men's cross country team's 1981 season, although not repeating 1980's Wisconsin State University Conference championship, produced some outstanding personal performances and a 10th place NAIA national finish.
Highlighting the season was senior Dan Stack's second straight WSUC individual championship. Stack covered the rugged, hilly five mile course at UW-River Falls in a blistering time of 25:16, a course record.
Stack was named all-conference together with teammates Carl Bar-denwerper and Bryan Peterson.
Stack's and Bardenwerpcr's performances were even more remarkable considering the injuries they have had this season. Stack's injured
knee kept him from running competitively until two weeks before the conference meet, and Barden-werper ran the latter half of the season with a stress fracture in his left leg.
Coach Keith Daniels lauded Peterson as the Blugold's most consistent runner. Peterson capped his cross country career with a 35th place national finish.
"I concentrated on keeping my shoes on and not breaking any toes, and it worked," Peterson said.
One of the reasons forthe Blu-golds continued excellence in cross country is the closeness of the team, Daniels said.
Former UWEC letterman John Vo-dacek returned the last two seasons
to help Daniels coach the team, and senior Dean Quigley still ran every night with the team even though he used up his four years of eligibility.
Tom Gilgenbach's cone and Bucky chugs and Dan Cooper's Rolling Stones party tapes have made the cross country parties legendary, and such former Blugold running greats as Jim Speigelberg and Todd Herbert return each year for the Nerblefest extravaganza.
With seniors Stack, Peterson, Garth Mohr, Brian Anderson and Jon Novak leaving, the team is losing an important nucleus of runners, Daniels said. But he added that a strong crop of freshman led by Travis Stephens will keep the Blugolds strong next year.

1SSVann leads team to WSUC trophy
by Sandy Dorn
The 1981 UW-Eau Claire football team could be likened to a steamroller. Rolling down a steep hill.
It started slow, as the Blugolds dropped a 23-7 defeat to Concordia College of Moorhead. Minn.
Then someone released the brake, and the Blugolds didn't stop rolling until they defeated UW-la Crosse 22-19 in the season's finale. The team boasted an 8-0 conference record, 9-1 overall, and UW-Eau Claire had its first conference football championship since 1964.
Blugold Head Coach Link Walker was named NAIA District 14 and WSUC Coach of the Year. He assessed his first championship after 14 years of coaching here in simple
"We did it up pretty well."
Despite its record, the team was not among the eight invited to the NAIA Division I playoffs, as it finished ninth in the final rankings. The Blugold's record was better than those of three teams rated above them.
Sophomore quarterback Kevin Haag seemed to sum up many players' feelings when he said, "We got screwed out of it."
The Blugolds' unbeaten, untied record was the first in the conference since UW-Oshkosh's in 1972. In a balanced league that has seen co-champions in five of the past seven years, the Blugolds won the
league title by three games. Last year, the team was 2-6 in conference play, and throughout this season, Walker said that the difference between the 1980 and 1981 records were the close games: Last year the team lost the heartbreakers and this year it won them.
Five players earned All-Conference and NAIA All-District 14 first team honors: senior center Brett Cole, senior defensive tackle Steve Eckley, junior offensive guard Craig King, junior safety Mike March, and senior tailback Roger Vann.
Second team All-Conference honors went to senior offensive tackle Jeff Adams, and sophomore linebackers John McBride and Brian
156. . . Walker
takes coaching honors
Those receiving honorable mentions were senior quarterback Kevin Bohlig. junior kicker Bob Leffler, and senior noseguard Tony Schoch. Boh-lig's honors came despite his missing almost four full games at the end of the season due to an injury.
Injuries resulting in five knee surgeries and one broken bone failed to slow the Blugolds. Defensive captain Eckley said the injuries helped to solidify the team by pulling the players together and forcing them to work as a team.
Bohlig, last year's All-Conference quarterback, suffered a broken fibula in his left leg during the UW-River Falls game. Haag finished the game, a
14-6 victory for the Blugolds. He steered the Blugolds to four more wins, including a 31-0 whitewashing of UW-Stout in a game that gave UW-Eau Claire the outright conference title.
Six players will graduate, but the quality of the loss far outweighs the lack of quantity. Gone will be Adams, Bohlig, Cole, and Vann from the offense and Eckley and Schoch from the defense. All received All-Conference honors, Bohlig and Eckley are four-year letter winners, and most players admit that Vann is irreplaceable.
Vann led the NAIA in rushing with an average of 157.5 yards per game, averaged 34 carries a game and was
named the NAIA National Player of the Week with a 239-yard, five-touchdown performance in the Blugolds' 45-16 win over the University of Evansville, III.
Whether the Blugolds can repeat their title remains unknown. First year defense coordinator Steve Car-son said that opponents will be gunning for UW-Eau Claire. That puts the team in an unfamiliar position. And a welcome one.158

Kuehl Shines in Blugold golf
by Bill Chrostowski
"Wc were one player away from winning the championship," said Coach Frank Wrigglesworth. The veteran Blugold golf coach felt the team's lack of depth kept them from having a truly outstanding season.
Not that the Blugolds' season wasn't successful. With a record of 45-23-1, it certainly was. It's just that, as in most sports, bigger things were hoped for.
"The fact that Erik Dahlberg and Scott Walsh had to miss many key matches really turned us into a four-man team, and you need five players shooting below 80 to win consistently," Wrigglesworth said.
The championship that the Blugolds were one player away from winning was the District 14 and WSUC combined match. The Blugolds played well, finishing second in the district, and third in conference.
It was at this meet that Jeff Kuehl capped an outstanding four-year
performance by copping medalist honors for the second time. The senior from Gillett shot a 36-hole score of 143, a score that is only one stroke off the conference record of 142 set by Don Iverson, former pro and UW-La Crosse golfer.
By being the conference medalist for the second time, Kuehl gained membership in a rather exclusive club. Only former UW-Rivcr Falls golfer Tim Kelley, who won the WSUC titles in 1977 and 1978, qualifies. Kuehl was also named team Most Valuable Player, and led the Blugolds with a 75.5 average round.
Yet, while the Blugolds may not have been a deep team, they were not a one-man team either. Scott Terwilliger, Ross La Barbera, and Paul Bjorklund all made significant contributions to the Blugold cause.
Terwilliger, along with Kuehl, was named to the 10-man all-conference squad, and finished only two strokes behind his teammate in the conference meet for medalist. The Sun Prairie senior did win medalist at the
La Crosse Invitational, and was named by Wrigglesworth as the team's Most Improved Player.
Sophomore La Barbera received honorable mention on merit of his 78.7 average. Freshman Bjorklund from Strum was the only other Blugold to compete in all 14 matches, and his 79.1 average as a freshman was a pleasant surprise to Wrigglesworth.
Walsh, an all-District 14 player in 1980, had to miss most of the 1981 season because of academic load, but should be back on a full-time basis for the Blugolds in 1982. Also, Dahlberg, who golfed as fifth man most of last season, but missed a few matches because of injury, will be back next year as well.
In fact, in looking to next year, Wrigglesworth expects everyone back except for Kuehl, who graduated in December.
If all goes as planned, the Blugolds won't be one player away from an outstanding season next year.

Volleyball team reaches its three goals
by Bill Chrostowski
When a team finishes its season with a record of 12 wins and 32 losses, yet still reaches all three of its preseason goals, you may be tempted to question the validity of those goals.
But after hearing Coach Bonnie Jano tell it, you realize that in sports, like anything else, you take your pleasures when you can. You also realize that you set your goals according to the talent you have, and that they arc to be kept at a realistic level.
The three goals, according to Jano: "We wanted to maintain a better than 50 percent average on serve reception passes, we wanted to be able to execute a quick offense, and we wanted to be able to run an offspeed attack as well."
Statistics show that the Blugolds accomplished the first objective convincingly. "When we beat Mar-
quette, and then took La Crosse to the wire before losing, the team showed to me that they could run a quick offense," Jano said.
The victory total of 12 represents a 100 percent increase over the previous year, and Jano attributes this to the teams' skill in using the offspeed attack and their ability to play outstanding defense. The "offspeed attack" was used because of the team's lack of height, instead relying on finesse and defense rather than spiking ability and power tactics.
"Superior was the only team we could really play power volleyball with. We survived by using the off-speed attack. The only problem with it was, by midscason, we had become predictable and unbalanced in our offense. To win consistently, you have to have a combination of power and finesse. We didn't have the size to employ the power part," said Jano.
Jano has a lot of confidence in her team's defense, and she figures if she can recruit some height the Blugolds will be on their way to the top.
Said Jano, "I believe we had the best defensive team in the conference. Opposing coaches were fre-uently complimenting me on our cfensive play; they were often amazed at our ability to keep the ball in play. The problem is we had to play defense all the time."
The season was not without highlights or disappointments. The win over Marquette was the first time a Jano-coached Blugold team beat the Milwaukee school. Also, Carolyn Stout, who made the all-conference team as a freshman last year, was honored by winning positions on the all-blocker and all-server teams in the Blugolds' own Clearwater Invitational.

Team remains near top of conference
by Kathryn Hall
For the second consecutive year, the UW-Eau Claire women's tennis team provided fierce opposition, and, along with perennial powerhouse UW-La Crosse, dominated the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Though this was "the most balanced conference ever" according to Coach Marilyn Skrivseth, the Blu-gold women finished the fall season near the top again, placing second in the conference meet, only four points behind champion La Crosse. Last year, the Eau Claire women ended La Crosse's eight-year reign as conference champions.
The caliber of tennis continues to improve in the WWIAC, Skrivseth said, which made for tougher competition from the No. 1 singles position all the way down to the No. 3 doubles slot. This led to a tight, competitive season. "All teams showed an increase in ability," Skrivseth said. Five of the seven teams in the con-
ference had flight champions in the conference meet, compared to the last few years when one or two schools dominated.
After jumping from fifth place in 1979 to the conference championship in 1980, the Blugold women had pressure built into the season, especially since the team's top three players were back.
"What many people didn't realize was that we lost a lot last year — four seniors with experience and stability," Skrivseth said. Even so, the young Blugolds, led by sophomores Nancy Jansen, Patty VanEss and Joan Pedersen and junior Connie Millot won the Whitewater Invitational and the Oshkosh Doubles Invitational. Jansen and Millot were individual champions in the conference meet and the rest of the team finished no lower than third in that meet.
"We have super individuals and very talented people," she said. "I was disappointed in the consistency of our play but not in our effort." Inconsistency was a problem with
the young Blugolds throughout the fall season. In the conference meet, three Blugolds lost to opponents they had previously beaten.
Skrivseth credited these women for not giving up and coming back to win third place. "It showed a lot of poise and character," she said.
The team finished the fall season with a 31-5 overall record and went 10-4 in dual meets. In matches they were 128-54, and over half (30) of those losing matches were three-setters.
As for the pressure of being on top, that now rests on the La Crosse team. But the Blugold women are ready to return to the top and will handle the pressure better in the future, Skrivseth said.
"Once you get to the top there is always pressure," she said. "As our team matures, we'll be able to handle it better. From here on out we know what we can accomplish.
We'll be a tougher, more determined team in the future."163Women's basketball has highlight
by Kathryn Hall
The UW-Eau Claire women's basketball team did not have a winning record in the 1981-82 season, yet the season had highlights. The team won three conference games after going winless the past two years in the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The team finished in a tie for sixth place in the conference standings and gained a regional tournament satellite playoff spot. Junior Mary Ellen Leicht received Honorable Mention in the balloting for All Conference.
Head Coach Sandy Schumacher said the three conference wins were the high points of the season but that there were other accomplishments as well.
"What was most pleasing to me was the teamwork that developed on and off the court," she said. "The women got along well and would help each other in practices and game situations."
Although the team was plagued by injuries to key players, this added to the teamwork, Schumacher said.
"Having to rely on different people made the team gel," she said. "Some (women) that hadn't played as much came through for us when we needed them."
Schumacher was also happy with Leicht's All Conference Honorable Mention recognition. "She did a lot for the team in a quiet leadership capacity," she said.
jean Mattiacci led the Blugolds in scoring with a 15.6 per game average, while Barb Brockman finished right on her heels with a 15.5 average. The two were second and third in conference scoring. Juniors Brockman and Leicht led the team in rebounds with 10.4 and 6.6 per game, respectively. Brockman was fifth in the WWIAC for rebounds. Mattiacci had the most assists, averaging three per game, and was ranked 10th in the conference for her 71 percent free throw average. Brockman had the best field goal percentage for the Blugolds, shooting 45 percent.
Brockman had her best effort in a
conference game against UW-River Falls when she scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead the Blugolds to a 73-66 victory. Mattiac-ci's highest scoring performance came in a game against Bethel College when she scored 26 points, helping chalk up another Blugold victory. Leicht scored 18 points for her season high in a conference victory over UW-Platteville.
Of 10 team members who played in 10 or more games, six had free throw percentages over the .600 mark. Besides Mattiacci (71%), and Leicht (60%), Sue lekstadt shot 85 percent, Jean Severson shot 55 percent, Julie Bieniek shot 60 percent, and Terri Risch shot 60 percent.
Leicht, Bieniek, and Kay Carney played in all 19 of the Blugold games, while Mattiacci, Brockman, Barb Brendel and Severson played in all but one.
The Eau Claire team ended the season with a 6-13 record, including a 3-5 conference mark.

Green leads swimmers to
by Bob Dubiel
The UW-Eau Claire men's swimming and diving learn proved itself one of the best in the nation this year, winning the Wisconsin State University Conference State University Conference championship and finishing fourth in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics national tournament. Head swim coach Tom Prior said he considers the team “probably the most cohesive, enthusiastic group" that he's ever worked with. Prior and diving coach Bob Clotworthy attribute the
success of the team to a friendly, yet competitive atmosphere. They stress the person, not the athlete, in their training program.
The Blugolds easily captured the conference championship, winning 12 of 18 events. Mark Green, a senior from Green Bay, won three individual events and aided in two relay victories. Green was voted District 14 Swimmer of the Year by the district coaches in addition to being UW-EC's Most Valuable Swimmer.
Besides Green, nine other Blugolds were conference champions either in individual events or as
members of relay teams. The nine include swimmers Bill Elliott, Steve Furness, Bob Kline, Tom McMan-ners, Kurt Radecke, Kirk Radeke, Wade Reddy, and divers Jeff Weber and Joe Koziol. These 10 were named to the All Conference First Team, while Paul Smith, Kevin Strandberg and Steve Petruzzello were named to the Second Team.
In the national meet, the Blugolds finished fourth overall, scoring 168 points in the three day event. The meet, held at Simon Frazier University in British Columbia, Canada, ended with the same five teams in
the same order as the 1981 meet. As in 1981, the Blugolds edged Bemidji State of Minnesota by a single point.
The Blugolds captured four thirds in that meet, including thirds from Koziol in both diving events. Green in the individual medley, and the 800 freestyle relay. Weber turned In a fourth and fifth in the one- and three-meter board, while Doug Brown added a sixth on the three-meter board. Eleven Blugolds earned All America status, determined by their national place finishes.
Golds take conference, national diving titles
by Bob Dubicl
The UW-Eau Claire women's swimming and diving team, in its best season ever, won the 1982 Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship for the third consecutive year and went on to finish third in the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, Division III championships.
Coach by Tom Prior, Cynthia Clotworthy and Bob Clotworthy, the women's team defeated runnerup UW-La Crosse for the conference title. Leading the Blugolds in scoring were Mary Robertson, a freshman from Waukesha and Laura Ladwig, a junior from Racine. Robertson won three events and contributed to two successful relays. In her Individual effort, she set conference records in all three events. Ladwig also had three individual victories, with two school and three conference re-
cords. She also swam on a winning relay team.
Robertson and Ladwig, along with seven other Blugolds, were named to the All Conference team. The others are Julie Bowers, Carol Howard, Karen Luterbach, Kathy McKenna, Lisa Roettger. Carolyn Sheild, and Stephanie Thompson.
Prior noted that due to the loss of several swimmers early in the season, it was vital that everyone give their best effort to win the conference championship. Fortunately, the team gave its all in the meet Prior labels "one of the most gratifying victories."
After finishing eighth two years ago and fourth last year, the team took third place at the AIAW national championships held at Allegheny College in Mcadville, Pennsylvania. In a dramatic finale, the Blugolds swept the diving titles, with Lisa Roettger taking the one-meter and
Karen Luterbach winning the three-meter events. Diving coach Bob Clotworthy, an Olympic gold medalist himself, noted because of the several outstanding divers on the Eau Claire team, each had to work hard to maintain her place on the team. In total, eight Blugold swimmers and divers achieved All American honors. Besides Luterbach and Roettger, Bowers, Ladwig, Robertson, Sheild, Thompson and Lisa West were named to the All American team.

1WMero's gymnasts third
by Kathryn Hall
"We had a very good year."
Mary Mero, gymnastics coach at UW-Eau Claire for 13 years, summed it up with a satisfied nod. The coach has every reason to be proud. Her squad, made up of veteran performers and talented newcomers, accomplished many feats this season. The highlights included high team scores, academic individual academic honors and a fifth place finish in the national meet.
"It was an exciting year," Mero said. "Everyone put out 100 percent — you can't ask for more than that."
The women started strong with a 116.45 in their first meet of the season early in December. From there, the team increased its score in every meet, becoming consistently better as time progressed. On January 10, the Blugold women surpassed the score that had earned them seventh place in the national meet the previous season.
"That meet gave us an opportunity
to show us that we could do well in the conference and nationals," Mero said.
Only one week later the team achieved a score of 126.7 and four days later the team peaked, scoring a season record of 126.8 against Winona and UW-Madison.
Individual efforts that were consistently bettered provided some outstanding moments. Freshman Julie Hardtke set a school record for scoring when she earned an 8.90 with a Tsukahara vault in the Northwestern

Invitational. Junior Lori Mickelson averaged 30.00 in all around competition. Both Hardtke and Mickelson were named to the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference team for their performances in the conference meet. Hardtke won the vault competition, Mickelson was second and both placed in the top ten all arounds.
Junior Lisa Kolb also contributed heavily to the Blugold success. Kolb placed 11th in all around competition in the conference, and in the
national meet she jumped from about 50th place last year to 15th this year.
Senior Kathy Wussow was named the WWIAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in gymnastics. The award is given for outstanding academic achievement as well as contribution to an athletic team. Wussow will enter medical school in the fall.
The Eau Claire team finished third in the conference, a disappointment to Coach Mero. The disappointment was not in her team but in the judging, she said. "They performed the
best they ever did and just didn't get scored.' UW-Oshkosh and UW-Mil-waukce were first and second, with the Blugolds less than one point behind.
The gymnastics squad completed their season with a trip to the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, Division III nationals in Keene, New Hampshire. The team had been ranked third in the AIAW polls previous to the meet. They finished fifth, while Gustavus Adolphus was first and UW-Oshkosh second.
171Bluegolds survive slump to earn
by Doug Kroll
Dominance and success has become a trademark of UW-Eau Claire basketball for more than a decade. Winning the conference championship has become almost second rate to another more difficult goal — that of a national championship.
For the fourth year in a row the Blugolds earned the first step to such a title with a trip to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics tournament in Kansas City, MO. But as in each of the three previous years, the reality of winning the title slipped by.
The team ended the season with a 26-6 record, which included 14 consecutive victories, and championships in the WSUC and NAIA District 14. With the Wisconsin State University Conference's most valuable player, three All Conference first team representatives, and one of the best benches in the league, the Blugolds got respect wherever they played.
The Blugold were undefeated in the WSUC with only four games remaining in regular season play. Included in the string of wins was a 127-67 rout over UW-Platteville, a game in which records for most points and largest winning margin were set by the Blugolds. Senior sen-

sation Tony Carr set a new singlegame scoring record with a 49-point performance in that game. Other notable wins by the Blugolds included one against UW-Stout in which freshman Rick Dahl connected with a winning shot with just ten seconds left, and a come-from-behind thriller against UW-Stevens Point. In that contest, a Blugold victory seemed
impossible, as the team was behind by four points with four seconds left. But after scoring one basket, and recovering the rebound after two Stevens Point missed free throws, seniors Bob Coenen tied the game with a basket from underneath after an assist from freshman Tom Saxelby. The Blugolds went on to register a ten-point victory in the

fourth consecutive K.C. trip.
Despite winning so many games, soime questioned the no. 2 ranking of the team in the NAIA standings because of close victories. Those doubts were further amplified with a startling chain of events near the season's end. With only four games left and the championship still not secured, the Blugolds lost three consecutive games — against La Crosse, Stevens Point and Whitewater.
A victory in UWEC's remaining game was essential to get a share of the conference championship. And a 69-48 thrashing of Oshkosh gave the Blugolds that share.
In the District 14 playoffs, Eau Claire showed its winning form once again. In their first game, the Blugolds registered and 86-80 victory,
setting up a rematch with Stevens Point for the district championship. At Stevens Point, the Blugolds built up a 13-point halftime lead, and fought to stay ahead when the Pointers came close in the second half. Eau Claire won, 70-66, and earned its fourth consecutive trip to the national finals.
The Blugolds were nearly upset in the opening game of the nationals by Mary College of Bismarck, North Dakota. But a 19-foot shot by Dahl with just five seconds remaining in overtime gave them a 74-73 victory. Two nights later, the Blugolds easily handled St. Thomas Aquinas of Sparkill, New York, 91-77. Carr became a favorite of the Kemper Arena crowd in that game as he poured in 41 points.
The road to a championship and end of the season came in the quarterfinals as the Blugolds lost to the University of South Carolina-Apar-tanburg, 76-64. Spartanburg won the championship by defeating no. 1 seed University of California-Biola, in the finals.
Carr, who became the conference's leading scorer and most valuable player this season, was instrumental to the Blugolds' success. He averaged more than 25 points per game and broke several school records.
But Carr was not the only player who stood out for the team. Senior transfer student Rich DiBenedctto and Coenen both strong rebounders were both named to the conference first team.Algiers places fourth at
by Kathryn Hall
The UW-Eau Claire wrestling team achieved what Coach Don Parker said was "a realistic goal" in placing fifth in the Wisconsin State University Conference. It was the best finish for the Blugolds, who have been moving up slowly but surely from the bottom half of the conference. Junior Tony Algiers repeated as conference champion at 134 pounds, while senior Ron McPhail and junior Barry Schmitt finished third and senior Randy Belonga was fourth.
"A few individuals could have done better at conference," Parker said, "but they didn't get the breaks."
The fifth-place in the WSUC was not bad, considering that the team that finished third, UW-River Falls, also placed third in the NAIA nation-
"The season was good and bad," the fifth-year coach said. "We showed improvement but I thought we'd do better in duals." The Blugolds ended up with a 6-6-1 dual meet record.
The team saw both sides of lopsided dual meets, losing the first match of the season to Northern Michigan, a Division II scholarship school. The Blugolds' only victory in that meet came from Belonga, who wrestled before a hometown crowd. NMU and UW-EC met halfway to wrestle in Peshtigo, Belonga's hometown. The final score was 43-3.
After Christmas the Blugolds blanked Northland College 58-0.
The national tournament at Pacific University in Oregon capped the season for the Blugolds. Algiers became the second wrestler in school
history to become a two-time All American. He placed eighth last year and fourth this season. The tournament was good experience for all four wrestlers that earned the trip, Parker said.
"Barry won two close matches, Ron lost to the eventual tournament MVP and Randy lost to the defending champion at his weight," he said.
Algiers finished the season with a 29-5 record. He and McPhail were named to the NAIA District 14 team, Algiers on the first team at 134 and McPhail on the second team at 142.
The team finished in the upper half of all but one invitational this season, including a fifth place in the 16-team St. Cloud Invitational and fourth place in its own Blugold Invitational.Back row: John Geurkink, Barry Schmitt, Randy Belonga, Tony Algiers Ron McPhail, Scott Tolzman, Coach Don Parker.

176Pucksters improve every season
by Bob Nygaard
A few years ago, small-college teams in the Midwest used to laugh every time the UW-Eau Claire hockey team pulled into town.
They're not laughing anymore.
In just five short years since its inception as a varsity sport, the Blu-gold hockey program has grown into one of the finest among the nation's small colleges. Instead of being on the short end of lopsided scores like 18-2 and 17-0, the Eau Claire pucksters are now the ones doing the damage.
This season the Blugolds skated to their best season ever, compiling an overall record of 12-19-1 while breaking or tying over 25 team and individual records. The overall mark may not exactly be an accurate indicator of the Biugold's play this season, though, when one considers that 15 of the 20 games not won were decided by two or less goals.
"If there is one thing that disappointed me this year, it is the fact that we lost so many of those close games," said Head Coach Wally Akervik, whose team did set a new record for most wins in a season. "I feel that there were at least five or six games that we should have won."
Although the close games hurt Eau Claire in the won-loss columns, it didn't stop the NAIA selection committee from inviting Eau Claire to the first NAIA National Tournament. The Blugolds nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the tournament in the
first round against eventual champion Augsburg College, but gave up two goals in the final five minutes to lose to the Auggies, 7-6. One UW-Superior coach said that it was one of the best, if not the best, games ever in the 15-year history of the NAIA Tournament.
"With a little luck we could have won that game," said Akervik, who ended his third year behind the Blu-gold bench. "But just making it to the national tournament will be very beneficial to the young team we have. I think, with the tournament exposure, more people are aware of us as a hockey team now."
As far as numbers go, things look bright for the Blugolds next season as they lose only four players to graduation. But those four aren't just your run-of-the-mill hockey players. Three of the four skaters, including All-Americans Pat Farrington and Steve Cerrato, and Tom Olson are the first UWEC pucksters ever to skate a full four seasons. Those three, along with right wing Bob Donahue, a transfer from Northern Michigan last year, all can attest to the tremendous growth in the Blugold hockey program in the last few years.
"Looking back over the four years I've been here, I really can't believe how much and how fast the hockey program has grown," said Cerrato, the 1981-82 team captain. "I think a big reason for the growth is the large amount of players Eau Claire has coming over from Minnesota in comparison to three or four years
That growth will more than likely continue for Eau Claire. This season nine out of the top 10 scorers were underclassmen, and two freshmen, Steve Blodgett and Rich Penick paced the Blugolds in the scoring department with 26 points each. Sophomore Steve Albers, the leading point-getter last year, finished third this season with 24 points. In all, Eau Claire may have had one of the most balanced scoring attacks in the nation as only 12 points separated the top ten scorers. Nine different Blugolds had game-winning goals and 16 of the 21 skaters on the UWEC roster (excluding goal-tenders) had at least one power play tally.
Eau Claire started out the season with a bang, losing only once in its first seven games and jumping as far as fourth in the NAIA weekly poll. But after that, it seemed the Blugolds could not buy a win as they were victorious in only one of their next nine games.
"I don't know what happened, but the consistency you need to win just wasn't there," said Akervik. "That's one area we must improve on next year."
The Blugolds played in two conferences this season, finishing third in the WSUC with a 7-10 record and fifth in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association with a 6-13-1 mark.

179Luterbach national 3-meter diving champion
Luterbach's brother dived for Iowa State and, along with Clotworthy, has been an important influence on her. Clotworthy said he was thrilled that Luterbach won the high board. Her close friend and teammate Lisa Roettger was national champion on the low board.
"Let me tell you how close these girls are," Clotworthy said. "At nationals, Lisa had already won her title on the low board. She blew a dive on high board and practically gave the championship to Karen. Then Karen blew a dive, and we thought she had lost. Even though Lisa appeared to have won the title, both of them were subdued. When the official re-
sults were announced, Karen had won because her dive had a higher degree of difficulty than Lisa's. Both of their faces lit up when they heard the results. It was the happiest experience I have ever had as a coach. I think that this is the essence of sport," Clotworthy said.
Clotworthy described Luterbach's diving style as very poetic and graceful. For her part, Luterbach said she felt the most important part of diving was the boardwork. "If you have to try to salvage a dive in midair, It's too late," she said.
Fortunately for UW-Eau Claire, poetry in motion isn't a cliche; it's Karen Luterbach.
Karen Luterbach, like many college students, relishes a chance to get away from studies and do some traveling. This year, the UW-Eau Claire junior took an early spring break and went to Meadville, Pa. When she returned, she was the proud owner of a trophy as an AIAW Division III national diving champion. Her reaction to the championship was typical of the softspoken management major: "Oh, I didn't expect to win, but it was a lot of fun."
In addition to her first-place finish on the high board, Luterbach took third place on the low board. Although she competed in nationals the previous two years and was All-American each time, this is the first year that she finished so high in either event. She credits part of her success to UW-Eau Claire diving coach Bob Clotworthy, an Olympic gold medalist in 1956. "He's a great coach," she said.
Luterbach started diving in high school her freshman year. She went to state three years and placed second her sophomore year. She said she started diving as a way to break up studying and to stay in shape.Roettger never dreamed of championship
Lisa Roettger was a promising diver on the UW-Eau Claire swimming and diving team three years ago. A freshman then, the physical education major qualified for and competed in the AIAW national meet that year. She didn't score any points, or to put it in her own words, "I bombed."
Perhaps a little disappointed, perhaps a little burned out after four continuous years of diving since tenth grade in high school, Roettger decided to take the next year off from competitive diving.
After sitting out only one semester, she began diving again under the tutelage of a new coach, Bob Clotworthy, an Olympic diving gold medalist in 1956. Under his program, which stressed fun as well as excellence, Roettger began to execute dives she never had thought possible.
"I did a front one and a half with a double twist this year," she said. "I used to always psyche myself out, but at the conference meet I put it
Roettger capped off her brilliant season with a national championship
on the one-meter board and a second place on the three-meter board. She said her high school coach, Nancy Could, and Clotworthy helped her a lot, but added that the ultimate credit for her championship must go to Cod. "Whatever talent I have, I owe to Him," Roettger said.
Roettger started diving in tenth grade. She went to state each season at Stillwater, Minn., and took fourth place her senior year.
Despite this early display of talent, Roettger said she did not think she would become a national champion even as she competed in the national meet this year. "I was just taking one dive at a time. When it was over and I had won, it took awhile for it to sink in," she said.
Roettger said she was sure one reason that she had such a successful year was that the team was much closer and the atmosphere much more relaxed than her freshman year. "The team is just like a big family," she said. And in a judgmental sport such as diving, where the diver's every movement is judged from the moment she steps on the
board, what could be more critical than being calm and relaxed?
Roettger plans to dive competitively at UW-Eau Claire next year and will coach diving this summer in Stillwater. "It will be good experience for me," she said. "I'd like to coach diving after I graduate."
181Vann has off-field abilities, too
by Marty Hendricks
Flabbergasted. Flattered. Surprised.
Those were UW-Eau Clare tailback Roger Vann's reactions to being named a Kodak All-American by the American Football Coaches' Association and the MVP of the Wisconsin State Unviersity Conference by the Milwaukee Journal.
"I was surprised, flabbergasted and flattered," Vann said. "I don't believe it — it really hasn't hit me yet."
The honors may have come as a surprise to the modest 21-year-old from South Bend, Ind., but he was the obvious choice to many others.
"He's the best running back I've seen since I've been here," Eau Claire and WSUC Coach of the Year Link Walker said. "He's a super athlete and a super kid."
The senior tailback led the NAIA Division I in rushing with 1,575 yards, a 157 yard per game average. He rewrote the Eau Claire record book, setting seven new school marks.
Vann also set WSUC records for single game attempts (43) and single season attempts (281) and a state record for single season attempts (343).
The Blugolds rode Vann to their first WSUC title since 1964 with a 8-0 conference mark and 9-1 record overall. Eau Claire finished ninth in the final NAIA poll and just missed a playoff berth. (Cameron University of Okl., which knocked Eau Claire out of the eighth spot in the final poll, was disqualified from the playoffs for using two scholastically ineligible players during the 1981 season).
"We just took one game at a time," Vann said. "Anything else was a blessing."
Vann, a unamimous All-Conference First Team selection, received many extra "blessings" but was quick to acknowledge his teammates. "It was a team effort. They're (the offensive line) who made it all possible. I have so much confidence running with those guys in front of me," Vann said.
Clearing the way for 180-pound Vann were First Team All-Confer-
ence picks Brett Cole (center) and Craig King (guard). Second Team selection Jeff Adams (tackle), Glenn Nelson (guard), Jeff Wilson (tackle) and Tim McAllister (guard).
"They don't get the credit they deserve. They don't get the interviews or the reporters calling them. They're like the Rodney Dangerfield of the turf — they get no respect," Vann quipped. "They don't get the glory, but they say it's worth it when I get the yards. I can't give them enough credit."
Several National Football League teams have expressed an interest in Vann. He admits playing professional football has been a life-long dream, but said "I'm not going to go chasing rainbows. I'd take it (a pro tryout), but right now I'm going to finish one dream at a time — I want to finish school first."
Vann, an advertising major with emphasis on commercial art, is as proficient with his outside activities as he is on the gridiron.
'Very few people know me as an artist," Vann said. "Ever since third grade I have been involved in art ... I love it. You can be creative and put your own style into whatever you do."
Commercial art is a very wide field, Vann explained. "You can do
anything from soda cans to ads for newspapers or layout magazines. Or design album covers or just do illustration for books."
His ultimate dream is to work for Playboy magazine in a layout capacity. "You can't beat that. I think Playboy is classy. Not just because of the sexual thing, but because I admire their work and like their style."
"But whatever I decide to do in life, I'm gonna do to the max — put all my heart into it," Vann said. "Now, I have so many activities going on at one time. There are so many things I enjoy doing, but just don't have the time for them all."
During the football season, another love of Vann's — karate — has to take a backseat. "The hardest sport in the world to perfect is the martial arts," he said. "I have so much respect for it. But it takes time to develop the mental aspect. The discipline and meditation help to make you a well-rounded human being. And I just don't have time for it right now."
Even though Vann is very active, one thing that doesn't suffer is his performance on the football field. But Roger is not the only talented athlete in the Vann family, which numbers 16 — nine boys and seven girls.
"My brothers excelled in athletics," Roger said. "But our family always stressed academics — sometimes to the point of almost being sickening. My mom would say, 'why aren't you studying' or 'take your books with you' when we went out to practice or workout."
Vann considers his education very important. "I want to be more secure than the average person. The best way to do that is to get an education."
Note: Roger Vann became the second Blugold in UW-Eau Claire's history to have his uniform (no. 36) retired. He joins Jim Van Gorden, a 1965 graduate, in this honor.
Vann was signed in April to a National Football League contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
162Stack is 'self-trained' runner
by Dan Cooper
If you're walking around the UW-Eau Claire campus in the spring, you might see some of the track team's distance runners returning from a workout. And if you do, don't be surprised if you hear shouts of "Co Dangel" (pronounced danj)
Dange is the nickname of senior Dan Stack, one of this year's track team co-captains.
Stack, a native of Superior, is the owner of a walrus moustache, a big grin, a hearty laugh, and two consecutive Wisconsin State University Conference cross country championships.
Assistant UW-Eau Claire track coach John Vodacek, who also achieved considerable success running for UW-Eau Claire in the mid-70's, said Stack is one of the finest runners to pass through the university.
Stack claims he is a self-trained runner, but does credit Vodacek with influencing his running.
"Sometimes johnny and I will go out for an extra workout after practice and midway through the run we're flying and the pace never lets up until we're back," Stack said.
Stack comes from a sports oriented family of four boys and five girls with Dan falling in the middle. His brother Mike played on Superior's 1974 state championship basketball team in high school.
Dan also played basketball in high school, and was the top defensive player his senior year.
"Hockey's the big sport in Supe-town. If a hockey and a basketball game fell on the same night, you could forget about anyone coming to the basketball game," he said.
Perhaps a bit surprising is that Stack did not begin distance running until ninth grade when a coach suggested he fill the team's void in the
The next year in cross country, he placed sixth at the sectional meet and 33rd at the state meet. As a junior, he won the sectional and placed 25th at state, and in his senior year he took 15th at state. He didn't know it then, but he was running against many of his future Eau Claire teammates.
Stack was recruited by UW-La Crosse, Golden Valley Lutheran, Minn., and Eau Claire. He toyed with the idea of going to Madison, but rejected it because "running should be fun, and at Madison they make it into a job." Eventually, because then assistant coach Randy Wilber continued to correspond with him. Stack chose Eau Claire.
Stack characterizes himself as a fluid, confident runner with a good kick. At 157 pounds, he is more powerfully built than the lean, long-legged running stereotype.
Stack said the key to good running is in the mind. "The day before a big meet I'll go over the course and mentally picture where I want to be at certain points in the race. Then at
night I let my mind wander about and try not to think too much about it. In the morning I start concentrating on the race again," he said.
Stack said his best race was the 1980 WSUC cross country race. "Everything was perfect. I won, the team won, and we dethroned La Crosse," he said.
Last fall, a knee injury put a question mark on his repeating as conference champion. For two months. Stack worked with trainers to rehabilitate his knee and then at the end of October, just five weeks prior to the conference meet, he began running again.
Although others may have had their doubts about his ability. Stack never did. "I remember asking Dange about the upcoming (conference) meet," Vodacek said. "He looked up at me and said, 'I still know how to win, John,' and right there I knew he was going to win it again."
And indeed he did. Running at UW-Rivcr Falls, on a grueling course, Stack repeated as conference champion. His time of 25:16 over the five miles set a course record. Perhaps a little amazed at what he had achieved, Stack called this race "ungodly."
"Those (1980 and 81 conference cross country) were my good races. My worst was definitely this season's national (cross country) meet," he said. In 1980 he raced well enough at nationals (22nd) to receive All-American honors, but in 1981, with his parents watching, he finished 35th. It was a shattering disappointment.
Stack, a management information systems major and an accounting minor, will graduate next December. He hopes to intern with GTE in Chicago this summer.
183Converted sprinter becomes Cross Country All-American
by Marty Hendricks
Deanna Marchello did not try out for the UW-Eau Claire women's cross country team last year, but Blu-gold coach Kirk Elias was sure glad she decided to run this season.
Marchello, a sophomore from St. Mary's Springs in Fond du Lac, concentrated on her studies last fall, but ran for the women's track team in the spring.
Former women's head cross country coach and assistant track coach Beth Bonner coaxed Marchello into giving cross country a try this fall. It seemed to have worked out well for everyone, as Marchello emerged as one of the team's top runners.
"She is doing very well — she is a runner who has been converted," Elias said. "She was a sprinter in high school and ran the mile on the track team last year."
Marchello's teammate and advisor, Jenny Arneson, said her track experience benefits her cross country running. "She is a strong sprinter and that really gives her an advantage at the end of a race."
In high school, Marchello ran the 800 and the mile relay. She finished second in the WISAA state meet in both events her senior year. At Eau Claire, she ran the mile and the half-mile last spring and set the school indoor mile record with a time of 5:09.3.
"I thought I'd like cross country better (than track) ' Marchello said. "It was something new to try. Now I like cross country the best. It's a lot of fun."
Marchello has always enjoyed running. "When I was young, I found it was something I could do well. I always won the races when we played games and stuff. I held my own against the boys in my neighborhood too."
She said running is "a good escape and makes me feel good." Marchello should feel good about her performances so far with her limited cross country experience.
Marchello, an accounting major who aspires to be a certified public accountant, was the top finisher in all but one meet she competed in for the Blugolds.
Her main goal this season was for the Blugolds to place in the top three in the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and to qualify for nationals. The team reached both those goals, placing third in the conference and 10th in the national meet. Marchello finished seventh in the conference, third in the regionals and became UW-Eau Claire's first female cross country All American, placing 15th in the national meet.
Elias said Marchello has a lot of potential and will continue to improve in the next few years. "She is a talented and natural runner who has supplemented that with a base of endurance this summer and in practice.
"She is an eager student of the sport," Elias added. "She wants to find out the subtleties — the why and how of things. She is willing to put in the time and follows race instructions ... and thinks about the strategy of a race. She has picked up things in one year that usually take many years."
t 4Gymnast named WWIAC Scholar-Athlete
UW-Eau Claire gymnastics coach Mary Mero often boasts of her group of intelligent gymnasts. The Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference also recognized that fact when senior Kathy Wussow was named the conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The award is given for excellence in academics as well as achievement in athletics.
Wussow, a biology major, has a 3.8 gradepoint average but was surprised by the honor. "Coach Mero filled out some forms a couple of months ago but I never thought anything of it." she said.
After graduating in May. Wussow will enter medical school at UW-Madison. She missed most of the first semester of gymnastics competition this year while she applied to medical schools and studied for the Medical College Admissions test.
Wussow has been with the UW-Eau Claire gymnastics team on and off all four years of school. She missed the conference and national meets her sophomore year, when the Blugolds first qualified, while she was in London. Her father, Walter, is a history professor at UW-Eau Claire and taught in a London exchange program that semester, so the whole family went along, Kathy said.
Last year Wussow finished fourth in balance beam competition in the WWIAC but she did not compete in that event this year at the conference meet. "I was better last season
but I'm still glad I'm out. I love gymnastics," she said. "I'm glad I competed because it makes me feel more a part of the university."
Throughout the four years she has competed, Wussow has seen changes in gymnastics. "They changed the scoring procedure," she said. "Gymnastics has gotten more advanced. You get credit for risk." Another change was the separation of divisions two years ago, which dropped UW-Madison and other large schools out of the Blugolds' division.
IBSFarrington completes college career in sensational style
by Bob Nygaard
All UW-Eau Claire Head Hockey Coach Wally Akervik asked of his senior goaltender Pat Farrington at the start of the 1981-82 hockey season was for an encore performance from his sensational sophomore year.
Farrington did not disappoint the third-year coach one bit.
In fact, Farrington turned in such a splendid repeat performance during the 1981-82 season that he collected some meritable honors along the way, such as selection to the NAIA All-American, the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association All-Conference team and the WSUC All-Conference team. He was also chosen the Blugold's Most Valuable Player. Farrington closed out the year with an overall record of 7-10-1 and a goals-against mark of 3.58. In NCHA action, the West St. Paul native sported a 3.31 goals-against average (fourth best in the league) and a sparkling .913 saves-percent-age mark (second in the conference).
But this wasn't the first time UW-Eau Claire has seen Farrington perform this way. Two years ago as a sophomore he was up to the same old tricks as he appeared in a record 27 (of 28 games) and kicked out another record 940 shots while playing
for a team that managed a 5-23-0 mark.
"I'd have to say that my goaltending this season was about equal to that of two years ago," said Farrington, who was also named the team's Most Valuable Player following the 1979-80 campaign. "Our team wasn't nearly as good we are now, so that's a variable you have to consider."
"His sophomore year he was unbelievable," added Akervik. "We played a tougher schedule this year but I think that both his sophomore and senior years were pretty much equal."
After his brilliant sophomore outing, Farrington's game crumbled the following year enroute to posting a 1-9-0 record overall. Akervik knew that in order for his Blugolds to be competitive among the small-college circuit this year, Farrington would have to rebound from his sub-par junior season.
"I said at the beginning of the year that we had to get a solid performance out of Pat if we were to be successful," said Akervik. "He gave us nothing short of that."
Farrington, who averaged close to 35 saves a game in NCHA play and had 40 or more saves on four occasions (including 47 in a 4-3 overtime win against Bemidji State and a 2-2 overtime tie with Mankato State), is proud of all the awards and honors that have come his way this season. But of all the laurels he has received, Farrington admitted that there were two that he is most fond of.
"It's a very special honor to be selected to the NAIA All-American team. It really means a lot to me," said Farrington, who holds virtually all of the UW-Eau Claire career goaltending records including games played (73), saves (2,471) and victories (17). "But being chosen by your fellow teammates as the most valuable player is something I cherish too."
Farrington, a criminal justice major, is one of four players the Blugolds lost to graduation this year.
186Though not flashy, the kid's consistent: Cerrato
by Bob Nygaard
Wait just a minute here.
Let me see if I got this straight. There's a guy, a senior named Steve Cerrato, who played defense for the UW-Eau Claire hockey team. Now this Cerrato character, its been said, is a pretty good hockey player, not real flashy, but good. Here's the tricky part. It says here that the kid has been named twice to the NAIA All-American team the past two years. He also made the all-Wisconsin State University Conference team this season. Those are a couple of highly commendable honors. The catch is that the kid doesn't really score a lot of goals. In fact, in the last two years he's managed to put only three shots past opposing goalies, and those were all this year. Three goals and the guy has been named All-American twice. Doesn't really make a lot of sense, now does it?
But what all of this does show is that if Cerrato isn't racking up points, he has to be doing something pretty much out of the ordinary to catch the eye of all those honor team selection people. What exactly that is, however, is something that even Cerrato is unable to really put a finger on.
"I really can't say why I was chosen, but I will say one thing — I was quite surprised when I heard the news about being selected to the All-American team," said Cerrato, a native of Albert Lea, MN, who scored three goals and added nine assists for 2 points during the 1981-82 campaign, after piling up no goals and 15 assists the year before. "My guess is that I was picked both years probably because I played consistently throughout the entire seasons.
Head Coach Wally Akervik, who has watched the smooth-skating Cerrato for the past four seasons, has pretty much the same reasoning.
"He's such a steady player," said Akervik. "If there is a person who defines team player, he is it. All of his four years here, he was never really concerned with his personal statistics."
That's quite a compliment to pay to an athlete who spent his first couple years toiling with teams that were less than brilliant. During Cer-rato's freshman and sophomore seasons, the Blugolds won just 11 of 56 games. Varsity hockey, begun just one year before Cerrato's arrival, suffered through quite a few lopsided defeats during those early seasons. At times one period for Cerrato and his teammates seemed like an entire season.
"I remember we were up in Be-midji once when I was a freshman," said Cerrato with a slight grin, "and by the end of the game, I knew their school song as well as the band director. I had to — I heard the thing 17 times." Bemidji won, 17-0.
Although he noted that there were plenty of other "memorable" moments from those first two years, Cerrato realized that it is all behind him. In just five short years, the Blugolds have molded themselves into genuine small-college contenders.
"Looking back over the four years I've been here, there has been a tremendous growth in the whole program," Cerrato said. "I think the big difference for the improvement is a lot of players coming over from Minnesota." This year's roster showed 18 of the 24 players were from the Gopher State.
While scoring goals has never been one of Cerrato's strong suits (he had tallied only once coming into the 1981-82 season), Cerrato's mere presence on the ice can be just as important to the team, according to Akervik. In fact, the third-year coach liked to label his prized defenseman as the team's soft-spoken leader.
"I don't know if you could call me a leader. If I am it's a very quiet one," said Cerrato, who has appeared in more games, 110, than any other Blugold in the school's history. "I just try to do it by example. I don't rah-rah or that kind of stuff. I'm just not into that."Average high school wrestler is two-time All-American
by Dan Cooper
If you had told Tony Algiers early last season that he would be a two-time Wisconsin State University Conference wrestling champion at 134 pounds, he would have laughed at you.
Yet that's exactly what the UW-Eau Claire junior has become. He went on to gain NAIA All-American honors by placing eighth at the national meet last year and this year finished fourth at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon in the 1982 nationals.
Algiers' record of 29-5 gives him the winningest single season record in school history. Only two other wrestlers, both of whom were also conference champions, ever won 20 or more matches in a season. Mark Janicki was 20-2-1 in 1969-70 and Ron Seubert was 22-7-2 in 1977-78.
Surprisingly, Algiers, by this own admission, was only an average wrestler at Hartford-Union, where he attended high school. He qualified for the state meet his senior year, but did not place there. In other words, he was good, but not outstanding.
Tony Algiers' mercurial rise in wrestling began three weeks before the 1981 conference meet.
"Basically, I was wrestling at the wrong weight," Algiers said. "I had been wrestling at 142 (pounds), but moved up to 150 for a meet, thinking I would have better success."
But Algiers was wrong. His opponent defeated him handily. The solution seemed obvious: if you can't win at a higher weight, try a lower one.
So Algiers lost 16 pounds and began wrestling at 134 pounds. "I won about 10 matches in a row, so I stayed at that weight for the conference meet," Algiers said. He won the championship, qualifying him for the national meet.
Algiers said his goals for this season were to repeat his conference victory, and to place in the top five at nationals. He has achieved all, winning four straight matches and accumulating more team points than any
individual in the conference meet.
Algiers, a biology major and chemistry minor, said he plans to go on to graduate school in Minnesota in order to become a veterinarian. He will be working on a mink farm this summer to get some practical experience.
He confessed that one of his greatest challenges is maintaining his weight. "After a meet I usually gain 10 pounds that I have to lose again before the next meet," he said. Algiers does this by eating only one small meal a day and exercising vigorously in practice. "It helps a lot
when other guys on the team are cutting down also," he said.
During last summer, Algiers said that his weight "balloons up" and that he devotes the first several weeks before the season to losing weight.
Algiers started wrestling when he was a freshman in high school. Then it was just a way to stay in shape between the football and track seasons. Gradually, he found that he liked it more and more, yet some of that cavalier attitude remains today. "If it ever gets to the point where all the fun is gone, and it's nothing but work. I'll stop wrestling," Algiers said.
1MCarr shatters school records, ends career as Blugold
by Dan Cooper
The young athlete knocked and then entered the coach's room. "Are they In yet?" he asked.
"Are what in yet?" shot back assistant coach Dale Race. Recognizing his coach's tone of mock anger, the athlete persisted, undaunted, "My new shoes, man!"
"New shoes! What's wrong with your old pair?"
"They've got holes in them."
With the kind of basketball that Tony Carr played this season, it's not surprising that he's worn a few holes in his shoes.
Carr, the hotshooting guard from Beloit, stands 6 3" and weighs 186 pounds. He possesses what veteran coach Ken Anderson calls excellent hysical basketball tools and a dura-le body.
Carr's career stats are impeccable: three time All Conference, three times All District, NAIA All-American second team last year and first team this year.
As a senior Carr was conference player of the Week three times, District 14 Player of the Week twice and NAIA player of the Week once.
He also set a school single game record with 49 points against UW-Platteville, and broke former Blugold Mike Ratliff's school single season scoring record. Carr amassed an incredible 2,257 points in his career compared to Ratliff's 1,994. He averaged 25.4 points a game this year.
At the end of regular season play this year, Carr was the fourth highest scorer in the NAIA. Yet, at mid-season this year, Carr briskly brushed off all talk about being drafted by a professional team, something many fans and coaches consider a certainty, especially after his 41 points against St. Thomas Aquinas in this year's national tournament.
"I just take things one game at a time," he said. "When the season's over I can start to worry about my next step as far as basketball's concerned."
Coach Anderson said that it is very possible that Tony will be given a chance to play in the pros. If selected by a team he would become the sixth Blugold player drafted, and if he makes the cuts he will only be the third Blugold to make the pros. Other coaches concur with Anderson's view of Carr's chances.
"Tony's just a super player," Briar Cliff coach Ray Nacke said.
Burt McDonald, coach of conference foe UW-La Crosse, said, "Carr is better than I thought. I knew he was good, but I didn't know he was that good (referring to Carr's 28 points against the Indians on Dec. 8). He's not just good, he's great."
Anderson said Carr is an excellent guard and shooter, and said that if Tony docs have a fault, it may be being too offensive-minded.
Carr said he would like to improve his ball handling. Off the court, Carr likes to be by himslf.
"I wouldn't say I'm a loner, but I do like to be alone at times," he said.
Carr is majoring in criminal justice and after his basketball career is over he said he would like to work with juveniles.
"I love working with kids," he said. "Last summer I went home to Beloit and kind of put on a one-man basketball clinic for the kids there."
While in high school (Beloit Memorial) Carr worked with children as part of the Beloit recreation department.
As one of a relatively small number of blacks living in a predominantly white community, Carr said it took some time to adjust to life in Eau Claire.
With a sweep of his hand he seems
to brush aside any bad memories. "Now I love it. I love the people and I love the city. The fans here are great."
Basketball is by far the spectator sport at UW-Eau Claire, and as one of the team's starting five, Carr has become something of a campus hero.
"Sometime the publicity gets to be too much," he said. "But sometimes I'll walk into a store and somebody will recognize me and ask how the team's doing. I think that's great."
Publicity came to Carr early, when he was plaving for Beloit Memorial high school. His senior year there he was deluged with offers from different schools. Why, then, Eau Claire?
"Well, all those other schools were telling me they were going to do this for me and do that for me, but it was all bull," Carr said frankly. "I started looking at Eau Claire and I knew they had a winning tradition so I came here and hoped it would be the right decision. And it has been."
Anderson interrupts the interview because it's time for practice. "Better shake it."
"Okay, coach," Carr said.
Anderson pauses on his way out the door and adds, "Hey Tony, catch!"
Out of reflex Carr grabs the flying objects. It's a new pair of shoes.Coenen: soft-spoken off court, his actions speak on court
by Dan Cooper
If you're wandering the UW-Eau Claire campus the day after a Blugold basketball game and bump into 6-9, 230-pound Bob Coenen, you might tell him, "Great game last night. Bob!" to which he will probably reply, "Thanks, but I really didn't do much."
The senior from De Pere (East High School) is soft-spoken off the court, but during a game he lets his actions speak for him.
Coenen was named to the All-Wisconsin State University Conference and All-NAIA District 14 teams the past two years and this season he and Tony Carr were the Blugold cocaptains. Together Coenen, the center, and Carr, a guard, make a powerful combination.
"Coenen's a very physical player and is great inside," said Briar Cliff College coach Ray Nacke, whose Chargers dropped a 66-61 decision to the Blugolds with Coenen scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. "He and Carr complement each other well," he added.
UW-la Crosse coach Burt McDonald called Coenen a great rebounder and Blugold coach Ken Anderson agrees. "Bob's by far the best rebounder on the team," Anderson said.
Anderson said that Coenen is the leading percentage shooter in the WSUC and is a good, all-around defensive player who has improved each year. He also pointed out that Coenen possesses excellent physical basketball tools and a durable body, enabling him to play outstanding basketball on a consistent basis.
"If Bob does have a weakness it's not being offensive-minded enough," Anderson said. "He needs to demand the ball more for his ability."
Coenen agreed with Anderson and said he would like to develop his offensive game more.
Coenen is a business education major and when he graduates would like to teach high school students. He is also working for his coaching certificate and would like to coach. In his spare time, he likes to watch all
types of sports and said that one reason he decided upon Eau Claire as the college he wanted to attend was its great basketball tradition. "Eau Claire's a very sportsminded community. The fans are great."
190Redshirts' improve skills, build up while waiting to play Blugold basketball
by Mark Schaefer
It has been said by many college basketball experts that the best thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores. But the UW-Eau Claire basketball program has a special luxury with Keith Knutson and Brian Krueger; they were freshmen this year and will remain freshmen not because of a lack of academic ability, but because of college's redshirt rule.
"Redshirting" allows athletes to sit out one year of competition to increase the players' eligibility beyond the normal four years. The rule allows an athlete to remain a freshman in athletic competition while being
considered a sophomore in school.
Knutson is a 6'9", 210 lbs. freshman from Merrill, Wis. There he averaged 18 points and 13 rebounds per game, and was voted all-conference in the Wisconsin Valley Conference.
Krueger. 6'8", 205 lbs, is from Hartford, Wis. He averaged 13 points and 13 rebounds per game and helped Hartford to a 19-4 second-place finish in the Little Ten Conference.
Both players were recruited by state schools and a few out-of-state schools.
Knutson, a criminal justice major, and Krueger, a commercial art major, chose UWEC for similar reasons. Both players emphasized the good tradition that Eau Claire has attained
in both academics and athletics. Krueger said he was pleased with the recruiting practices of the school. Knutson said Eau Claire's close location to his home town was also a factor.
"I was going to be redshirted by just about all the schools that recruited me because of my lack of weight," Knutson said. He graduated from high school weighing 175 lbs.
On the other hand, Krueger was told he may play when Braulio Rivas returned to Panama, but when Rivas returned, Krueger was redshirted. When Rivas went back again., Tom Saxelby was moved to the small forward and Kreuger's destination was determined.
Both players agreed they had to learn to handle their situations.
"When I first found out I regretted it, because I thought I had a chance to play," Krueger said. "But as the year progressed I could see it would be better in the long run. I could see myself improve."
"I was told right away, so it was hard to go to practice sometimes when you knew you weren't going to play," Knutson said. "It depended on the mood I carried out on the court with me. I knew I had to improve but I still sometimes wondered."
Both players agreed that the red-shirt rule is not only beneficial to the program, but also to the player.
Krueger is projected to play as a small forward, but as Blugold assistant coach Dale Race stated, "Brian has the ability to adjust to anywhere on the front line."
Knutson is expected to play at the strong forward or the post position. He has already put on 40 lbs. and expects to reach a weight of around 230-240. Knutson is presently working with some of the Blugold football players in the weight room to help increase his weight.
"Both Coach Anderson and I are happy to have these two players in the program as incoming freshmen," Race said. "They are botn good people and are taking their redshirting well."
Race said the start of next season will determine the players' progress. "When they get out in the actual competition, then we will be able to tell how much they have progressed," Race said.
Race said he and Coach Anderson were looking for the two to improve their rebounding and defense, and they have done that in their appearances in the scout games.
Knutson and Krueger agreed that the chance to practice with such players as Bob Coenen, and Rich Di-Benedetto has helped their strength and stamina.
Both agreed that the rumors of the special favors basketball players get are annoying. "We don't get any special favors; that is all speculation," Krueger said. "It gets to be that being an athlete is a hindrance rather than a help."
What bothers the two more is the constant references to their height.
"People are always asking how tall I really am," Krueger said.
Knutson says it really doesn't bother him as much as it used to. "Once you reach about 6'6", the hassle gets pretty much routine," Knutson said.
Knutson and Krueger have similar opinions about the outlook of next year's team. They believe the team will lack overall experience, but will be quicker and closer knit." "We won't have a Tony Carr, so we'll have to be more team-oriented," Knutson said.Bonnie Marie Abramoff, Brookfield, Criminal Justke

by Leslie A. Horn
Most parents are concerned with their child's educational and career opportunities. But how many families would move across the Pacific Ocean and leave their homeland behind to find a better land of opportunity with education as a primary motive?
One family did, and it led to the fulfillment of a dream of becoming an American for a young woman who attended high school and college in Eau Claire.
Julie Meng, 23, a senior speech major, was one of 27 people who became a US citizen in November 1981.
Her citizenship story began in April 1975, when her parents, Richard and Kitty Meng, emigrated from their home in Taiwan in the South China Sea to Arcadia, Calif., seeking citizenship and better opportunities for their five daughters.
The decision to emigrate to the United States was a "difficult sacrifice" for the couple. Leaving family, friends and home to travel to an unfamiliar country with their children provoked a sense of loneliness. However, the Mengs only wanted "the best for their daughters."
For one year, while the Mengs searched for a new home in the Los Angeles area, the girls stayed in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, with their grandparents.
On April 10, 1976, the Meng daughters—Grace, then 21; Kathryn, 20; Julie, 17; Ellen, 16; and Tina, 13—arrived in Los Angeles to join their parents. Feelings of excitement with anxiety filled the air. A fresh start in a new country awaited the Meng family.
Kathryn, Ellen, and Tina chose to stay in California with their parents.
Grace and Julie moved to Eau Claire in 1976 to finish high school and college. A close friend of the family. Dr. Charles V. Ihle of Eau Claire had invited the young women to come. He met the Mengs while stationed in Taipei as an orthopedic surgeon from 1970 to 1973.
"I baby-sat for his children when the family was stationed in Taipei," said Julie. "Our families became close friends." Ihle did not want Grace to come to Eau Claire alone for fear of loneliness, so he asked Julie to come also. "We were both so excited to come to Eau Claire," said Julie.
In 1977, Grace enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, majoring in special education. She graduated in May 1981 and is teaching In Monterrey, Calif. Julie finished her senior year of high school at Regis High School in May 1977. Then she, too, enrolled at UW-Eau Claire.
After living in the United States for several years, citizenship became a primary goal for Julie, who wanted to become like her American friends. To become eligible for naturalization, Julie had to live in the United States for five years.
Three months after Julie applied, she was notified by mail to appear at the Eau Claire County Courthouse at 8 a.m., Oct. 3, 1981, for an oral examination, the second step of the process.
She had two weeks to prepare for the test. She reviewed the history and structure of the United States government. "I was really scared for the test. I lost sleep. I was so nervous," she said.
Oct. 3 arrived. "The test took only 20 minutes. Once I was in the room talking to the examiner I wasn't nervous. We just held a normal conversation with each other." Julie said.

For example, the examiner asked her if she could read, write and speak English, if she believed in the US Constitution and if she was a member of the Communist Party.
Two witnesses, Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Ihle, Eau Claire residents and parents of Charles V. Ihle with whom Julie lived with in 1976, volunteered to testify that they knew her and that they knew she lived in the Eau Claire area for at least six months.
After the test, Julie filed a "Petition for Naturalization" with the Clerk of Courts and paid a $25 filing fee.
"I felt so good after the test was completed. I knew I would soon be like the rest of my friends—an American," said Julie.
At least a 30-day waiting period followed the oral exam before she appeared before a judge for the final step in the process.
Julie took her oath of allegiance and received a certificate of citizenship on Nov. 19 1981 in the Eau Claire County Courthouse.
"I love this country. It means so much to me, but it is hard to believe that I am from the United States and not from Taiwan when people ask me," she confessed.Greg A. Albiero, Wc« Bend, Information System

212Business major succeeds in theater
by Lori La Chapelle
Successful theater productions require creativity not only of actors, but also of those "behind the scenes." At UW-EC, one of the most successful backstage technicians has been costumer Mary Flanagan, Seymour.
Unusual costumes and wigs designed by Flanagan were used in this year's Theater for Young Audiences production of "Wiley and the Hairy Man," a play by Suzan Zcder. The play, directed by Bill Baumgartner of the speech department, is a folk story about a fatherless boy's struggle to overcome fear of the unknown. The play won the Joseph Jefferson Award for outstanding children's play of 1977.
The unique costumes and wigs were for a chorus of six swamp creatures which represent Wiley's mother's magic abilities as they bend and contort to form furniture, trees, and other physical images. The six costumes are made of over 22,500 yards of colored ribbon cut and hand-tied to Swedish (netted) thermal underwear. Actors attired In the costumes appear as large, faceless, shaggy creatures.
For added texture, Flanagan drew some ribbons over a scissors blade to achieve a curled effect. Red, green, gold, silver, blue, and orange ribbons were used.
"I first used the ribbon-tying technique when designing an outfit for a costume party," Flanagan said. The outfit was well-liked and her ribboned wigs have since been featured in a fashion show and display windows of novelty shops in Chicago and Minneapolis. Last fall, she designed such a wig for a UW-EC production of "Hansel and Gretel."
"I'd like to someday operate a costume design business," said Flanagan, who majors in business administration and minors in chemistry. Flanagan, 29, said she has sewn since she was eight or 10 and has been designing and making costumes for at least seven years. Two summers ago, she was hired as a costumer for UW-EC Summer Theater productions and this year, became head costumer.
The six costumes and wigs for
"Wiley and the Hairy Man" were economical to make, she said. "The Swedish underwear was purchased locally for $128 and the ribbon cost $190," Flanagan said. She estimated that if such costumes were available on the market, one alone would cost nearly $500. She has applied for a U.S. patent on the invention.
"The entire costume-making ef-
fort took three to four hundred hours to complete," Flanagan said. She was joined in the effort by several assistants. In addition, she said the costumes are durable and require little care.
After graduation in December 1982, Flanagan said she plans to apply for jobs at theaters. "I find the work fun and challenging," she said.

Teaching: more than making bulletin boards
By Nancy Stillwell
It is 6:50 a.m. on a weekday, a time when most of us are just beginning to awaken. We are getting into the shower, or having our first cup of coffee. But Sandra Braun, 22 a senior majoring in special education, has been up for over two hours. While the sun is spreading its first fingers of daylight across the city, she waits outside her house for a carpool that will take her to Bloomer junior High School. This last semester, before she graduates, Braun is student teaching.
"I made the decision to go into education while I was still in high school," Braun said. The oldest child and only girl in the family, Braun liked to take care of her younger brothers, and got experience work-
ing with kids through babysitting.
"I remember what convinced me to go into special education," Braun said. "I had a class with a girl who was mentally handicapped. She didn't quite fit in so I took her under my wing. The demand for regular classroom teachers was falling and I felt good about helping that girl, so I decided to go into special ed."
Braun said she chose UW-Eau Claire because it was about the right size, not too far from her home in Burnsville, MN, and seemed to be a nice school.
"At the time, Eau Claire was one of the only schools around that had a good four-year special education program. So I came here."
"Academically, my freshman year was poor," Braun said. Like most freshmen, she lived in the dorms, went home a lot on weekends, stayed up late, and got up early.
"I had developed bad study habits in high school," Braun said. "Study the night before for an hour and still get an A on the test." When grades came out after her first semester, Braun got mostly C's.
"It was quite a shock since I had never gotten a C before in my life," she said. "I asked myself, 'What am I, dumb or something?' I was discouraged and wondered if I should really
be in school. Later I found out it's typical not to do well your first semester. I decided I wasn't dumb, and became determined to prove to myself that I could do well."
"A lot of people say that being in education must be easy — that all we have to do is grade papers and make bulletin boards, but I don't agree," Braun said. "In other majors, a student studies for a test, takes the test, and then winds down until the next unit is due. In educaton, every single day is important. If you are tired or down, too bad. If you act like you don't want to be there, the kids aren't going to want to be there, and that's two strikes against you."
"I don't think of myself as being any better or worse than other students in the department. I've had some better breaks and I pushed myself. Working at the Developmental Training Center encouraged me and gave me confidence. It showed me I could do well," she said. "There were times when I'd be close to tears and want to quit, but not I look back and things weren't so bad. I'm glad I stayed in education."
