This is "the last Quiver" meaning change, meaning death.
Our change is again in format. In an attempt to stretch the small budget allocated to us we have cut back on the number of issues, (still printing the same number of pages as last year however) the amount of color used, and the number of paid staff members! writers and many of our first year people are not being paid.)
Why the change?
Because subscribers last year liked the magazine-yearbook better than the traditional yearbook. We sold more Quivers than ever before, 2,500 books.
We were informed at the end of last semester that our allocated budget request was turned down and that the Allocations Committee had decided not to fund us.
For one,the previous years Allocations Committee had suggested that we be allocated only half of the original amount for that year. (We asked for the full amount which seemed to insult them.) The second reason being, “The Quiver is supposed to become self-supporting."
Thanks to Mark Mitchell, “The New Quiver” was allowed an emergency hearing of the committee. It was a long, hard naul but we were re-allocated half of our original request.
This is not the place to explain all the reasons or issues involved in the death of the Quiver. It is my hope however, that our efforts have not been completely worthless. With a bit of luck and a lot of harcf work, hopefully what we have attempted here may be carried on in some other publication that will rise from our death.

49.students are what the University is all about. ’ ’
by barb cherryFor a man who has but one semester left after 14 years as the top administrator. Chancellor Guiles reflected in an interview on his position as though he is satisfied with the university’s condition in respect to the past, present and future.
"I do think that there are logical reasons this university will remain very strong,” Guiles said. "We have good foundations to make that possible. This institution in the last early decade believed there should be a comprehensive university. Oshkosh's location is ideal and has brought a highly qualified staff," he said.
Guiles went on to say that after 14 years he hopes the future will bring on desireable changes by looking on it with a degree of nostalgia and hopes for the future.
"We have to look on things with hind sight," he mused. “We have to work along with other state developments which in turn changes the direction of the university’s development."
"The enrollment decline I feel is a result of other institutions offerings for the students," Guiles said. "But I do think that there are more things to be enthusiastic about rather than disappointed in."
Guiles then delved into what he saw as a positive and brighter future for the university.
“We’re going to move into a direction of more tailor-made courses for the students," he said. “Individual needs will be serviced through much more flexibility."
Guiles went on to say, "There certainly will be changes. These changes in the programs offered and preferences to the students in career goals will bring about a shift. Some programs will need more faculty and others will decline in areas where
student interest is declining."
He kept emphasizing that the university would be less rigid with more flexibility towards the student choices. He perceived that if a major field did decline, many courses affected this change.
“But if a curriculum didn't go towards the interest of the student we wouldn’t be helping anyone," Guiles stated. "How far should we go towards the students’ interest or curriculum is the question. Our first commitment is to the curriculum of the students.
Three influences Guiles saw to maintain a strong future for Oshkosh were programs for higher education responding to a greater number of people beyond typical college age, Oshkosh maintaining its graduate school as one of the two graduate centers, and a multi-interdisciplinary approach where teachers in different fielas would work together and plan new programs.
At present Guiles has an indefinite agenda for his retirement. "Given the good health we’ve (he and his wife) been given so far we can do things we haven’t done before," he said.
He still intends to be active professionally but on a different basis. Travelling and "plain relaxing" are the two major aspects he is looking forward to in planning his retirement. “The fun of retirement is to plan one’s own agenda," he mused. "After all, retirement is a unique experience—it only happens once."
QuiverAfter bein£ away from Oshkosh for six years, Executive Vice Chancellor Robert Polk does not find the campus too much different except for the students. "Students are changed from when I was here six years ago. They're more sophisticated; concerned with world problems and institutionally more aware,” he commented.
Polk wasn’t taken aback by blue jeans or long hair. "Years ago people were poor and a good pair of blue jeans was good," he saia with a smile. As for today’s student he reflected by saying, "People want to do their thing. The reason for doing it is important. If it’s for a lark, that’s something else. That’s like an identity crisis; trying to figure out who you are."
As though he were keenly aware of the inevitable question, Polk remained cool without facial alteration when asked about his possibility of
"I do not contemplate any administrative position on campus," he stressed. "Because I do have an association with this institution that’s why I came back. I have the background knowledge that someone new at it would take too long to learn."
Polk was on the committee for the construction of the Fine Arts Building, Library, Nursing-Education Building and the Administrative Wing on Dempsey. He also visits Oshkosh to see his motner and sisters about four or five times a year. Too, he has a son here, Dan, who is a junior majoring in sociology. Thus, as Polk put it, “I've really never felt divorced from Oshkosh."
Although many people are leery about the future of this university because of teacher cuts and budget disputes, Polk has an optimistic opinion of its future.
“I guess I’m not dismayed at the temporary adjustments," he said. “This is just a temporary situation. If students will just realize it will go on because without them it isn't an institution. You have to have students, and they must want to move ahead and be participants in the counsel of the institution and believe in it."
He went on to emphasize, "Oshkosh is third in the system by 2,000 students. It has more resource capability than a smaller institution."
Like Guiles, Polk definitely believes students have power. “Students are making it necessary to change academic modes,” he stated. Polk then gave the example of how the two semester history requirement was changed to a minimum of three areas, a total of nine credits, to be taken. This change occured so that students could expand their interests into other social science areas.
"Adjustments are necessary," he stressed. "We would have changes even if we didn't have a budget readjustment because of the changing mores and curriculum of students."
All in all, Polk has faith in Oshkosh because it "is viable with great potential."
He feels that administrators are valuable vehicles to the institution, but the faculty and the students are what make it.
"I hope the new chancellor falls into a general turn around,” he said. "I want to be sure the integrity of the institution isn’t compromised.”
Mountain streams and tall pines are part of the scenery that make Rocky Mountain National Park on of the most beautiful areas in all of Colorado and Coor’s country
It was a chance to photograph these mountains that brought me to Colorado despite the fact I couldn’t afford it.
After three and one half days of travel, learning every card game known by man, and nearly losing our sanity we reached our destination. Our efforts were rewarded by the chance to record this place through the camera’s lens.
178119united council president, randy nilsestuen
The Oshkosh Student Association joined United Council this fall. The United Council of University of Wisconsin Student Governments has consolidated the student governments of ten UW system campuses to work on protecting and enlarging student right and interests. It was organized in 1960, but gained the membership of Milwaukee. Madison, and Oshkosh just this September.
Randy Nilsestuen, 22, president of the expanded United Council this Year, is concerned with two student issues now, the UW Merger bill’s difinition of student responsibility and the user fees proposed by Governor Lucey last January.
The member campuses meet monthly. Their goal is to work within the system to get a voice for students and to provide them with avenues for change. Nilsestuen is pusing for a student advisory body to the UW Board of Regents. This would be beneficial to UW-Oshkosh as we are distant from these top UW System executives as well as the Legislature down in Madison.
Randy Nilsestuen appears on behalf of student interests at legislative hearings and maintains extensive contacts with legislators. UW officials, and faculty groups. He opposes the new user fees, and got rid of the sales tax on dorm food, saving the student 16 to 20 dollars a year. He pushes the

provision in the Merger Bill giving the students primary responsibility for developing policies concerning student life, services ana interests.
Former treasurer and chairman of United Council and a member of MISC (Merger Implementation Study Committee, formed to see its provisions implemented in UW System Campuses), Randy Nilsestuen is well qualified to troubleshoot for the 133,000 UW System students. He is completing work on his History major in Madison where the UW legislative and administrative action is, though he formerly attended River Falls. A calm and friendly person, he "usually accomplishes what he sets out to do, especially if it has to do with students getting a fair shake and a piece of the action," to quote the State Journal.
Nilsestuen offers UW System students an alternative to the action in the streets of past years, to the angry and alienated student voice in the media. United Council’s action and influence offers a constructive and viable alternative to either campus violence or campus apathy, whichever afflict the various UW System campuses, n

This being my first year away from Madison I am homesick for the fun and general hell-raising like dope smoke-ins, taking over State Street for a pedestrian mall, and protesting imperialist U.S. actions in Indo-China. Tear gas, police brutality, and street action are now only fond memories. So naturally, paging through old Advance-Titans I was drawn to headlines like "Campus Coalition Fights Cuts," "Faculty Unites to Protect Rights," “Faculty Defies Administration," et cetera.
It seems that last spring, the controversy was close to home. UW-0 had the budget cut, and faculty, tenured and non-tenured, were fired to cut costs. Hasty action by WEACT (not an acronym but a declaration of intent) and a Student-Faculty Coalition resulted in some reconsideration of where the budget should be cut. Chancellor Guiles was in the hot seat.
Franklin Utech, chairman of the Art Department and President of WEACT headed the actions taken. Utech is not a wild-eyed radical. He is very easy to talk to and is idealistic about the whole philosophy of higher education. Professor Utech sees the necessity of faculty unionization and collective bargaining. You can’t let the administration have the faculty over the barrel, that certainly isn’t academic freedom. Every time you have to
economize, knock a teacher or researcher off the payroll, maybe even close a department, tnai certainly will not enhance the academic quality oi UW-O.
But a unionized faculty might strike! All my tuition down the drain. I went to hear Don Krahn, Director of Field Services for WEA-NEA speak about collective bargaining on September 12.
Collective bargaining is going to oe a reality. You can’t hide your head in the sand like an ostrich, it isn’t going away. Three bills have been introduced in the State Legislature.
Don Krahn quietly but emphatically pointed out that WEA-NEA is a powerful organization with resources to fight the public school teachers battles in the courts and in the Legislature. If we don’t join their union, we can have a hassle getting a decent cut of the State budget for education. If we’re not with them, we’re against them.
Professional pride is keeping faculty from unionizing. Labor unionizes for pay, professors will have to unionize to have a voice in governance and in priorities in the budget.

Believe it on not, this is the Pro-Con column; the column that gives knowledgeable people the opportunity to rationally debate current controversial issues. The column that asks a question and gives a proponent a 1,000 word whack at it, gives the same chance to an opponent, and then has the opposing sides exchange statements for 1,000 word rebuttals. Statements and rebuttals appear side by side. No words barred. Well, almost no words are barred.
That's the way the column has worked in the oast. That’s the way we planned it for this issue’s dabate: Should the proposed student user’s fee be adopted? It didn’t turn out as planned. You see, .here’s this new guy on the job, and the thing became kind of an exercise in futility.
friday august 31
To make a long story longer, it all started when I was handed one of those silly little scratch pad notes captioned, "Notes from an Italian Lover,’’ and Biobanana’d on the note was the editor’s message, “For Pro-Con, check student government ior someone pro-user fee (probably someone from the allocations committee). Dean Smith probably for con."
That’s when I got on the user fee merry-go-round,
“Sounds like pretty heavy stuff," commented Gerry Guenther, Oshkosh Student Association (OSA) vice president, as I explained the format of the column and the question to be debated, "but I don’t know where you’re going to find someone on campus who is pro-user fee," he added.
Guenther said he was certain OSA President Gwen Kelly would be willing to give The Last Quiver a statement opposing the plan, but he also suggested that the ideal debate would be between two Madison user fee antagonists, Randy Nilsestuen, United Council president, and Donald Percy, UW system vice president of budget, planning and analysis.
"Good idea," I agreed, "but I think we’d have more student interest if the comments were from students, faculty, or administrators here on
campus. I told Guenther not to go ahead with an OSA statement until I located a proponent of the user fee plan.
Recalling that Gerald Johnson, UW-0 budget analyst, had made some comments about the user fee earlier in the year, I dropped in at his Dempsey Hall office to ask whether he knew of anyone in administration who favored the plan.
"I don’t think you’re going to find anyone in Dempsey who is pro-user fee," he predicted. Johnson criticized the plan's vague phrasing, especially the term, "non-instructional activity.’ "What is non-instructional activity?” he wondered.
Johnson offered to ask Joel Edson of the Administrative Affairs office whether he knew a campus use fee advocate. After a few minutes, Johnson returned from Edson’s office and said that Edson had told him guidelines from UW’s Central Administration were expected the following week, and that an official university position might be released then. According to Jonnson, Edson had called the current user fee proposal, "a philosophy," not a definitive plan. Tne attitude of the administration toward the philosophy, Edson said, could be described as "hostile."

Working on the hunch that the user fee might have come up in class or faculty discussions in the political science department, I contacted Dr. Charles Goff, who is teaching "Wisconsin Government and Politics" this semester.
I told Goff, “I’m looking for someone rather uniaue; someone who is a supporter of the proposed student use fee.”
Goff said the user fee had not been discussed at great length among political science faculty members. He thought tne plan would sound the death knell for intercollegiate athletics on the smaller UW-system campuses. He suggested that Eric Kitzman, director of intercollegiate athletics,

or Joseph Piper, UW-0 mathematics instructor and a member of the Titan Booster Club, might know someone who had endorsed the plan.
Wednesday September 5
On my sixth trip up the three flights of Polk Library stairs to Dr. Piper’s office, someone came out of one of the adjoining offices and said Dr. Piper would not be in, “because his wife is having an operation, or something."
I crossed Piper’s name off my list.
Intercollegiate athletics was next on my list. I asked Herb Willis, UW-0 sports information director, who the department’s opponents were in the user fee bowl.
“I don't know who’s for that plan,” Willis said. "All I know is that if it is adopted, it will mean my job." Willis remarked that UW Central Administration at Madison had received so much pressure from Wisconsin State University Conference coaches and athletic directors that, “the administration finally told us to stay out of politics.” He accused the administration of sitting on its hands, and said without statewide athletic department pressure, the user fee might be in effect now rather than just in the discussion stage.
A check of back-copies of the Advance-Titan convinced me that I would not find a user fee advocate on campus. Assistant Chancellor William White, former 6SA president Mark Mitchell, Dean of Students, Edwin Smith, Gerald Johnson, Eric Kitzman, and the current OSA officials all opposed the plan. There were no favorable comments. In fact, the nearest thing favorable was Gov. Lucey’s original recommendation that, "...the university should study all non-instructional activities with the intent of placing a user’s fee on these activities."
I told Editor Ted Conrardy that I had been stymied in my search for a user fee proponent, and suggested Gerry Guenther’s Madison debate might be our best bet.
"Go ahead," Ted agreed. "Keep track of your phone calls."
Gerry Guenther was contacted and told we were going off-campus for statements as he had suggested, and we would no longer need a contribution concerning user fees from the OSA.
Randy Nilsestuen, United Council president, quickly agreed to the terms of the column, but reported the Guenther’s proponent recommendation, Donald Percy, actually disapproved of the plan too. Percy might be willing to present the pro side of the issue, Nilsestuen said, but he thought Richard Dunn of the State Department of Administration’s Education Division, and Duane Schultz or Jim Wood of the governor’s office would be better prospects. I gave Nilsestuen deadline dates, and told nim I would let him know later who his opponent would be.
Nilsestuen’s first choice, Richard Dunn, was out of town.
governor s office
I had no trouble getting to Duane Schultz, and he listened politely as I explained the format of the column. Schultz advised that he would have to consult with senior members of the governor’s staff, but would call back before 8:15 the following morning.
friday September 7 governor's office again
Two days and two probing telephone calls later, I finally got through to Schultz. His answer was disappointing. “Fve talked it over with our senior staff members," he explained, “and they have decided not to participate.”
It was now 10 days to deadline; not enough time to allow an exchange of statements between Madison debaters. I decided to call Nilsestuen to let him know the debate was off but the The Last Quiver was still interested in his 1,000 word

statement with a due date of September 17. Nilsestuen jokingly offered to present both sides of the debate. "I'm not too biased," he said.
monday September 10
I told Editor Ted the Madison debate had disintegrated and with the deadline drawing nearer, we decided the best alternative would be two Con-Con statements, hoping to drum up interest and smoke out a possible proponent of the user fee plan for our next issue. Going back to Ted’s original suggestion to ask Dean of Students Edwin Smith for a statement opposing plan, I headed for Dempsey Hall.
"I’m sorry." Smith apologized after I had outlined the format of the column, "but I’ve just been appointed to an advisory committee to study the user tee proposal.” Smith said he was stockpiling ammunition for use against the plan, but he felt it would not be proper to issue a statement before the committee had submitted it’s recommendation.
Smith explained that UW Central Administration had instructed each UW campus to form an advisory committee and to report committee findings back to Central Administration before October 8, 1973. “If we had a year to prepare a report for this committee, we wouldn’t have enough time," Smith complained as he leafed through 15 pages of instructions and attachments.
With the sickening feeling that advisory committee appointments would dry up other possible sources including the university statement Joel Edson had discussed with Gerald Johnson earlier, I hurried up to Edson’s second floor Dempsey office. Yes, Edson had been appointed to the committee too. No, the university probably would not issue a user fee statement until the committee recommendations were in. Edson said he was not surprised the governor’s office had refused to give The I st Quiver a statement. "They could have told you, ‘We’re studying the proposal,’" he said. He
doubted I would find a proponent of the plan on campus, gave me a couple of Madison names I might contact for our next issue, said he would be more than happy to work with me if I needed additional user fee information. He suggested that if anyone was qualified to comment on the current status of the user fee proposal, it was Assistant Chancellor William White, who was heading up the committee to study the plan.
I assumed, nowever. that since both Smith and Edson were committee members and they had shied away from making a statement, that Chancellor White was likely to take the same position.
"You guys have as much to lose as anyone if this thing goes through," I told Herb Willis. ‘Tve got one statement coming from Madison. Would you like to give us the second statement?"
It should come through Dr. Kitzman’s office, Willis reasoned, but Kitzman wasn’t in. "I ok, if Kitzman won’t give you a statement, I will,” Willis promised.
tuesday September 11
Willis advised that Kitzman had agreed to give The Last Quiver a 1,000-word statement by the following Monday, and I ran back to Radford Hall to write Ted a note, “Looks like I’ve finally struck paydirt...,” and then I took a couple of days off.
kitzman monday September 17
Eric Kitzman sadly shook his head as he scanned a deskful of unfinished paperwork. "Oh yeah, the statement. I just haven’t had time to get to it. When do you need it?"
"It was due today," I said, "but if you don’t have it. I can give you an extra day or two," I added, desperatedly hoping Ted would go along with a two-day extension.
"OK." agreed Kitzman, jotting a note to himself. “I’ll have it ready by Wednesday noon."
Ted approved a two-day extension for Kitzman, but Nilsestuen’s statement was also due Monday,

According to historians and social critics, the antics of society travel in cycles. It is stressed that these cyclical patterns allow man to, above all, observe and anticipate his mistakes, hopefully preventing whatever harm may come from a reoccurrance of said actions. Generally this never works out. World War I was the war to end all wars, yet it took mankind another six years of World War II to relearn what we’re already supposed to know and even then the knowledge didn t do any good. Were still at it.
Keeping this rather bleak attitude in mind, allow me to change the subject to that distinct American cultural trait that has spread around the world, rock n‘ roll. From the time when Bill Haley first rocked around the clock up to John Lennon’s controversial “Working Class Hero” the mouthpiece of young America thumped out a message not only to their elders, but to each other, creating what ever unity there could be among so many diverse cultures in such a large country.
In spite of the progressions rock has made over the years from sloppy sentimentality to socially meaningful lyrics, from the two-and-a-half minute 45rpm to a full scale opera and from scratchy hi-fi discs to 64 track, multiplex, quadraphonic stereo tapes, there is a dreadful tendency as of late for a reversion back to what has been before, with an almost manic emphasis on good ol‘ rock n’ roll. In short, a lot of promising headway was tossed aside when America saw Sha Na Na do “At The Hop" in “Woodstock."
Sandwhiched in between many heavier acts, Sha Na Na seemed to jump up and sav, "Hey! Look what fun we’re having not singing about strife and oppression. And we didn’t have to even write the song, it was already there for the taking." The problem is that too many people took up the same cry.
Oshkosh is a perfect example of this train of thought. Every band that plays in one of the local
pubs had better have a good “Oldies" section to their act if they expect to be rehired next week. Songwriters in this town probably stand in mortal fear of performing any one of their works that is not either Boogie” or an old standby. Generally, even creative jams are frowned upon unless the lead player can introduce into it a few favorites to keep the non-musical majority from getting lost.
And what about all those preposterous record offers on television? "California Gold," "The Number 1 Hits of the Sixties," “Leader of the Pack, Vol 1 and 2." The only way the distributor can make money on those anthologies is to sell enough to cover production costs and purchasing rights. Judging by amount of new volumes each week it’s a fair assumption that they’re making ends meet.
Perhaps this diatribe against the dying Brylcream culture is too harsh. Certainly this was a time of innocence when the hottest thing going was petting in the back seat and everyone was a McCarthyite. They never did any harm to us.
Yet I know that when Ten Years After winds up a concert with "Sweet Little Sixteen" it’s a whole different story from those guys who come to a Dr. Bop and the Headliners show with their shoulder length hair pulled back in a ponytail and greased, witn chains and boots and girlfriends in tight sweaters and bobby socks. How many costume parties can one go to in the same getup before he starts becoming that person?
Some sort of bizarre identity crisis is at work here involving want of innocence, but it has reached epidemic proportions. Hospitals are full of people who think that they are Napoleon. How long will it be before they get their first Elvis Presley?
registration... is it worth it
photos by mike sajbel3031I have been in office almost five months now. Revelations of being president of OSA have been overwhelming. There is so much to do, so many issues to be tackled that sometimes you don't know where to begin. The financial future of UW-0 students is vitally important this year. We are in a time of crisis and unfortunately, it's rather dark at this time.
The financial crisis facing today’s UW-0 student are in the forefront. The price of education is spiraling; to students it seems uncontrollably so in tnese past few months. Students were taken aback when they were confronted with the tri-level tuition plan this semester. In brief, the tri-level tuition plan is a graduated fee scale for students who are classified into three levels. Level one covers students who have accumulated 0 to 60 credits, 61 to 128 credits is level two, and level three is graduate classification. One of the rationales given in justifying a tri-level tuition plan from the men in Madison was that it costs proportionately more to educate a junior or senior student than it does to educate a freshman or sophomore student. Supposedly junior and senior students receive more individualized training than those lucky freshman and sophomore stuaents who are educated in masses! Well, I would imagine this sounded really well in Madison when it was proposed; to an extent this rationale is true. Yet I would be willing to say that I could find a significant number of upper level courses on this campus in which stuaents are supposed to receive individualized attention yet these classes may have between 30 to 40 students in them. Some individualized training! Especially now, since almost every department on campus has been affected by the faculty lay-offs of last spring. Faculty members are carrying heavier teaching loads and are not always available to give junior ana senior students some of that individualized training for which they are paying. Now, I’m. not letting one go without comment. Level one is low on the fee scale not only because of the assumed fact that education for freshman and sophomore students is done in masses, but it’s also lower to entice new freshmen into the universities. Once these fortunate students reach 61 credits or more, they are zapped with a nice substantial increase in tuition. At the time when students reach junior and senior classification and could use some type of monetary reduction just for having played the college game for this long, they get hit. Let me clarify my position. I’m not for the tri-level plan at all. Whereas it may be a benefit for level one students best, it’s no joy for students at levels two and three.
Regardless of the dissent of the tri-level plan around the UW system today-it is here to stay. And it will be going to a higher level ofpayment for all students in the 74-74 school year. so students, start saving! You’re going to have to tighten up on weekend partying and barhoppine habits because you may need your nickels and dimes for tuition next year.
Continuing on the financial front, we are definitely threatened by the implementation of user fees. Those are two words which I know will be an important part of student rhetoric during this present academic year. In short what the users fee is, is a monetary plan proposed by this state’s governor to raise additional support money for programs, activities, and services which are not classified as academic. This not only encompasses
intercollegiate athletics and the paying of coaches’ salaries, but it covers music programs such as band, university chorus, forensics, radio and TV production centers and possibly such services as the placement center. Users fees to me would bring some really dark days on this campus and others in the system. What student sincerely wants to pay more money to the university after paying a tuition which is on a graduated fee scale, pay a student acitvity fee which now is close to $130 a year and maybe increased in the future, and then pay a users fee for wanting to participate in debate, or music, or intercollegiate athletics, or take advantage of services which are non-academic? It doesn’t sound bright. In this day of declining enrollments, housing offices operating at deficits, residence halls closing and empty classrooms do we really need a users fee? I say no!
Governor Lucey, I’m afraid we aren’t reaching you. You are trying to make the UW system unique; we're one of tne few schools in the country with the tri-level tuition plan. Maybe this will become the rage of the academic season. You give us a marvelous, brand-spanking-new user fee concept for us to gnash our teeth over. I hear we’re the only university in the nation with that concept. Are you going to be a trendsetter too? I hope you remember you are up for election next year. With well over 100,000 students in the UW system and many are voters, the college students are not too happy with all your great monetary plans and concepts for them. Potential voters always have a way to get a politician's heart, hey Guv?
by gwen kellyDorm life been getting you down? Sick of all the absurd policies that you’re forced to live with? Something can be done about them; but the process requires student participation and support.
united Students in Residence Halls (USRH) purpose is to combine the attitudes and forces of student opinion in the ouest of a better residence hall life. USRH ives tne students a more active role in policy making and dealing with residence hall rules. It also deals with student discipline and other matters concerning student life on campus. USRH also tries to provide a source of information for students in matters concernign residence halls and provides a means for students to air complaints to administrators concerning policies governing the residence halls.
Throughout the past year USRH has been involved in many facets of residence hall life. On the campus level.USRH offers refrigerator rental to students; provides the opportunity for students to paint their rooms for a minimum cost; established a policy providing beer within the residence halls; broke years of tradition by petitioning administrators to allow non-mandatory meal plans for upper class persons, and was instrumental in the conversion of rooms to suites in the upperclass residence halls.
By working with United Resident Hall Association (UkHA) (our state organization) USRH expressed concern to the Board of Regents regarding visitation hours, established a new visitation policy removing the difference for visitation between men and women, and advocated Assembly Bill 440 which saved every student $21.00 by removing the requirement that students pay a sales tax on the fooa consumed at the University operated dining halls.
Although the changes the USRH instituted last year were monumental, there are many changes that are still necessary. Already this year USRH has developed and instituted a policy for selling and consumption of beer in the university operated snack-bars . USRH is also instituting a policy to permit beer consumption in the University operated dining halls, and started a policy to permit bikes in student rooms.
During the next few months USRH will be working with the Oshkosh Student Association
(OSA) and United Council (UC) in an effort to stop the threat of user’s fees. The user fee concept is based on the idea that the students that engage in a particular extra curricular activity would pay for the use of the equipment and facilities involved in the activity. Tne hardest hit areas will be intramural and intercollegiate sports if the user fee is instituted.
USRH also plans to question the legality of the statue instituted by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, prohibiting Televisit service to the students in tne residence halls. These are just three of the major issues USRH plans to work on this year.
However, it is impossible to do anything at all without student participation and support. All students currently enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and taking residence at any of the University operated residence halls are members of UbRH.
For USRH to be successful, the student body must get involved. Each residence hall has representatives to USRH who have either been elected or appointed by their respective hall. There are opportunities for people to zet involved, however few students nave enough concern to support and participate in any form of Student Government.
Don’t just talk about how bad it is living in a residence hall. Not all administrators are traditionalists, some do listen to students. It’s not impossible to change the system. Take the time to learn about the student government process and really do something to change the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. FIGHT for the changes you want. Feel free to contact Randy Payant, President of USRH, at 406 Taylor Hall (phone 424-5908), or Tom Albers, Vice-President of USRH, at 78V Scott Hall (424-2721). Express your feelings or give your ideas and suggestions. Remember change is possible but it requires student participation and support.

The Oshkosh Saga
One of the many changes which came about on this campus over the summer was the switch from Ace Foods to Saga Foods as the sole operators of the dining service. Now, the first question that might be asked is, why the change? The answer is simple. . . MONEY. Since this institution is funded by the state, it must take the lowest bids for all services it requires and therefore we can assume Saga underbid Ace.
It is quite simple until one begins to think about what this implies. Food prices have risen very rapidly in the last few months, as your parents and friends living off campus can attest to, yet Saga can still underbid the established company.We can also assume then that there will have to be certain cutbacks made to reduce costs or the company will have to absorb these increases without going broke. Although Saga is an international company, serving Ripon, Stevens Point, St. Johns, Carol and Marquette colleges in Wisconsin alone, it is doubted if they can afford to make a practice of loosing much money for a long period of time.
Except for some salads, all food is prepared at Blackhawk commons and since over 1,200 students eat there every day with another 600 from Elmwood on weekends, that establishment warrants the most attention. Saga has all the same facilities at Blackhawk that Ace had yet still hasn't been able to alleviate the line problem. It was bad enough the first couple of weeks in the heat so hopefully they can get things together before winter sets in.
It is also interesting to note that although Blackhawk em-
ploys over 100 students and about 35 fulltime people, there is never more than two people dishing up food. This includes serving seconds to people returning from the dining room. When food does run out (as it seems to about every ten minutes) the servers stand and clean the counters until someone happens to stroll up from downstairs with another tray. Usually by that time, the line looks like a sit-down strike in the hall.
Now we come to the best part of eating in the commons, the cuisine. The food is now on a six-week rotation schedule or in other words, every six weeks you eat the same things in almost the same order as you did six weeks before. This was set up by the university not Saga. One must also remember that this is institutional food prepared to meet thousands of peoples tastes, so often the dish has to be rather bland and can be spiced up to individual tastes. Not even this always helps.
For those of you who have never had the courage to look at the University Dining Service Menu, do it sometime. At least if you don’t like what your eating, you can get a laugh out of what it’s called. In one week you can eat such strange and exotic
things as Flying Saucer Hot-cakes, Bunker Hill Assorted Pastries, Perfection Salad, Lazy Tom Thumb, Surf Cakes and Beanie Weanie to mention a few. If this sounds more like a Firesign Theater album than a menu to you, you’re not alone.
There are six different salads every noon and five every dinner (two of these being cottage cheese and applesauce) and tne other four are always the same. The tossed salad usually consists of broken lettuce with a few carrots thrown in for color and consistently the same (poor) dressings. One can get pretty sick of thousand island, french and vinegar oil night after ni ht.
The main courses, especially at noon, consist mostly of oread and noodles with a little meat thrown in. At dinner, when sometimes the meat is relatively good, the servings are quite small. Even with unlimited “seconds" you find yourself in another line waiting for the servers to clean their stations. Often it isn’t worth the trouble or the time, so you walk back into the dining room looking for a substitute. This brings us to the dessert table or maybe the drink section. The drinks themselves haven’t been too bad but at least one kind of milk is always empty, the glasses are
35usually hot from the kitchen and for a while there was no ice. This may sound picky but when you pour warm chocolate milk or coke on top of that food, it seems to set up a chemical imbalance that keeps the restrooms busy in most halls for hours afterwards.
The desserts are a different story altogether. Some have been great, usually the puddings and canned or fresh fruits, but the cakes and cookies are something else. While the cake often isn’t bad, the frosting always slides off in a solid, sticky sheet and the cookies (no matter what color) always taste like dried oatmeal.
Many of the problems Saga now faces can be worked out to most peoples satisfaction however, with a little attempt at better communication, more selection and better training of the available manpower. After
talking to some of the directors of Saga on campus, I’m convinced that they are sincere in their attitudes toward the student body and are attempting to remedy some of tne bad situations.
They have started to make more realistic estimates of the amount of food required for particular meals. On the weekends of football games they will step up production so we shouldn’t have another fiasco like the weekend of the first game where people stood in line for over an hour. They have also instituted the program of unlimited ‘‘seconds’’ and some self-service foods in the dining room which will be very nice when it becomes possible to gain access to the serving line without waiting forever. The Continental Breakfast has also pleased some
of us late sleepers.
I would suggest therefore, to give Saga a chance to get settled and together, yet not to let everything go unnoticed because they, like any other big company, will make a profit when and where they can. It is up to you to let them know when you don’t like something before they decide they can get away with it. This can be done by telling your food representative or talking directly to the manager. Let's hope things continue to get better and it’s up to you to make them that way. Ah. I see the line has moved again, so until next time, happy diningjoi

The Romans believed the owl was capable of doing both good and evil services. One Roman superstition was that if the heart of a horned-owl were applied to the left breast of a sleeping woman she would reveal all her secrets.
The American Indian believed the owl was the spirit of the dead, taking that form to warn of approaching death. Its hooting was the communication of the dead with the living.
She turned him down," is a phrase originating from Colonial days meaning to refuse a proposal of marriage. People who turn the picture of someone they dislike to a wall or upside down do so in hopes of giving him a headache or in some way hope to punish him.
With Thanksgiving near, here are a few superstitious beliefs attributed to the barnyard bird: If you go to a house and a turkey gobbles at you, you’re welcome. When turkeys stretch their necks to stare upward from their nests, it will rain before morning. And of course, if you get the long end of the wishbone on Turkey Day, your wish will come true.
There are people today in northern India who eat the eyeballs of an owl in belief that it will enable then to see in the dark.
The bachelor button was believed to exert a magical influence over love-sick bachelors according to an Oriental custom. The flower was to be picked early in the morning and looked at for twenty-four hours. If after this time it was still fresh “True blue"- it meant wedded bliss. On the other hand, if the flower withered, the union would be a long, sad life of matrimonial troubles. Orientals believe blue flowers express wisdom, piety, respect and fidelity. When we say a person is “true blue” it is a complimentary expression of the highest order.
"Wise as an owl" is a saying an attribute of Athena, where it was considered a good omen by the Athenians to see an owl or hear its call. In our daily parlance “Everything is fine!" corresponds with “The owl is out!” Thus, when speaking of the owl’s wisdom, we are reminded of tne owl s associations with the Greek worship at Athens.

by kathryn buchenSenator Howard Baker (R - Tenn.,) urged confidence in American democracy before a near capacity crowd at Kolf Fieldhouse, Monday, September 10. Baker is the vice-chairman of the special Watergate Committee.
The American political system has withstood a crucial evaluation, said Baker. He estimated the outcome this way: “America has not been injured by Watergate. We are not a nation of moralists. We understand that civilization is imperfect. We will emerge stronger than when we began."
Baker also expressed his satisfaction with the investigating committee’s ability to put partisan politics aside. Republicans and Democrats, he said, nave worked together to find the facts fairly and impartially.
He would injure his party, said the Republican Baker, if he failed to examine the actions of the administration fairly and publicly. "We are eoing to find the facts just as they are and let the cnips fall where they will." He believed the American people want to finish the investigation as promptly as possible and "get on with the business of the land."
He expressed confidence that President Nixon
would submit the controversial White House tapes to the committee. He did not feel the disclosure of the tapes would injure national security. But it is up to the Supreme Court to define the limits of executive privilege, and that decision must be regarded as lawful and final, said Baker.
The senator would like to see the following reforms recommended in the Watergate report due in February: - Campaign contributions should cease ten days before the presidential election to insure complete disclosure of funds. --Contributions should be accepted only from individuals, not from groups or corporations. -The electoral college should be abolished. -Regional, rather than state primaries, should be established. (Baker thinks that both the electoral college and regional primaries are anachronisms and encourage corruption.)
When asked about his own political future, Baker said he will not permit “presidential politics" to interfere with tne Watergate investigation. Although he does not feel “that compelling urge to be president," he did not state that he would refuse the nomination.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in the army for a day? Possibly my experience with the ROTC Tanger team will eive you some idea. I got the opportunity to photograph the rangers on an adventure training trip.
46The Ranger program is designed to provide cadets with the experience and confidence necessary when they become officers. As a field exercise seven cadets along with Captain Schmidt and Sargent Deneen were going to pilot a fifteen man rubber raft seventy miles down the Wisconsin River from Nekoosa to Portage.►
Portaging, navigation and map reading, setting up camp, and most of all cooperation were learned. Cooperation is something that can not be taught in a leadership lab, it has to be instilled by experience and the Ranger program gives a cadet that experience.

and it hadn’t arrived from Madison.
I put through a call to Nilsestuen’s Madison office.
“Is Randy Nilsestuen there,” I asked.
"He’ll be out of town until Wednesday," was the answer.
“Who is this?"
"T. J. who?”
"Just T. J."
I told T. J. we had been expecting a statement from Nilsestuen in today’is mail, and asked whether he knew if it had been mailed.
“I hope there has not been a mix-up here," he said. "I understood the debate had been called off."
I explained that the debate had been called off, but that I had told Nilsestuen we were still interested in his 1,000 word statement.
T. J. said he would get in touch with Nilsestuen to check on the status of the statement, and that I should call back the following day.
tuesday September 18
In our phone conversation the next day, T. J. explained that Nilsestuen had been called out of town unexpectedly and would not be able to meet our original deadline. I offered to extend it to Friday, but T. J. said Nilsestuen would not be back in Madison until late Wednesday, and a Friday deadline would not allow him sufficient time to prepare a statement.
“We’ll be happy to give you a statement for your next issue...," T. J. offered.
"We’ll let you know," I said.
Someone at Radford suggested Garner Horton, executive director of Communications Services, might be willing to make a statement, and Ted re-extended the deadline to Tuesday, September 25.
Wednesday September 19
“I’ve been on the periphery of the user fee plan and have attended some meetings, but I don’t feel qualified to comment of it,” Horton said. Horton, like others, referred me to Assistant Chancellor White.
I was reasonably sure I knew what the answer would be at White’s office, but I was down to no alternatives with a deadline that was beginning to pinch. White was out, but I left a note with his secretary asking him for a 1,000 word statement. Anticipating a refusal because of the advisory committee, I said the statement could be either one of opinion or information.
Then I headed for Kolf to pick up Kitzman’s statement.
“You know, I sat down for two hours last night trying to write a statement for you,” Kitzman explained. "I took out all the information I have on the user fee -and I’ve got a lot of it-and I checked the guidelines for this new committee-and the more I wrote, the more I wasn’t sure of my statements."
He said he would rather wait until the committee had submitted its findings, and he thought the next issue of The I ast Quiver would be a more appropriate time to discuss the user fee. “Why don’t you come back then, and I’ll give you a statement." In the meantime, he said, "Why don’t you write about our golf team. They’re pretty good you know.”
thursday September 20 white again
"I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you," White’s secretary frowned as she gave me White’s decision. He is tied up with the user fee committee and other matters ana feels he would not be able to meet your Tuesday deadline. “He would be happy to give you a statement in about two weeks," she added.
I said, “I kind of expected that," thanked her, and left.
And dizzily, I got off the user fee merry-go-round,
Should the proposed user fee be adopted? Is there a brass ring Who favors the plan? Where have all the opponents gone? I don’t know. You tell me. After all, this is your column.

Normally when a team begins a rebuilding program.championships occur one or two years later. Last March the Titan pitching staff had to be rebuilt almost from scratch. Who would know that just three months later the Titans would finish third in the nation with a pitching staff made up of four freshmen and three sophomores?
"It was a surprising season," said head coach Russ Tiedemann. "As our pitching developed, so did we." Sitting back in his chair, trophies and pictures lining the walls, Tiedemann reflected on the tournament. There was a twinkle in his eye and a satisfied tone in his voice.
The trophies on the shelf told the story of a coach who had won four straight WSUC championships. This was not his first trip to the nationals. He took a veteran team in 1971. Three of those players still remained in 1973.
Mark Hinske was a catcher converted to an outfielder. Pete Koupal was switched from second base to catcher. Todd Lindeman, a steady fielding third baseman, was out for the season with an injury. This made the 1973 team young.
"In our first game we were very .shakey," said Tiedemann, referring to the first game of the NAIA Area Four Tournament. The young team dropped the first game, 4-0, but not the desire to win.
"It was the first time we were shut out in 37 games,”said Tiedemann. On the second day the Titans came back and won three games.
“That was the turning point for us," Tiedemann said. The Titans defeated Missouri Western, 9-8, Morningside of Iowa, 8-5, and Winona, who was previously undefeated until they met the Titans. The pitching had come through.
It was not the pitching alone that saved the Oshkosh team. Solid defense and steady hitting were a prominent factor. The hitting was consistent enough that when it was all over the Titans were third in the NAIA in batting with a .343 average, the best ever at UW-O.
Mark Hinske was named honorable mention All-American. The Titan left fielder has been one of the leading hitters on the Titans the last three years. Certainly a satisfying way to conclude a brilliant career.
Pete Koupal was also chosen to the honorable mention All-American team. The Titan catcher hit at a .364 pace over the season and provided a steady performance behind the plate.
On the other side of the coin is freshman shortstop Jim Gantner. At the conclusion of his first year he too wears the All-American emblem. Add to that a naming to the All-Tournament team and you have one reason why the Titans next year will again be a contender.
Mark Miller, one of three seniors on the team, was named to the all-tournament team. The Titan co-captain finished his career with a .393 average.
What about next year? Number one? "We’ve got the potential to do it," says Tiedemann. It takes a little bit of luck admits Tiedemann, but he knows the team he’s got has the desire to do it.

53"Oshkosh hss just everybody back"
Six returning lettermen should give Head Golf Coach Eric Kitzman and this year’s Titan golf team a lot to look forward to, as they open their season this fall.
The six returning lettermen from last year’s team that finished third in the conference golf race are: Chuck Voy, senior, Todd Huber and Jeff Steggeman, juniors, Les Webster, Mike Spiczenski and Jeff Hagen, all sophomores. Coach Kitzman also figures on freshmen Richard Steggeman, John Bailey, Kurt Arenz and sophomore David Mueller to be strong contenders for spots on the six man varsity team. Other members of this year’s golf squad are: David Bates, Fred Bergman, John
Borchers, Joe Conrad, Bob Do lan, Randy Ebben, Jim Mosling, James O’Neil, Jerry O’Neil and Kevin Schultz.
Spiczenski was low man op the team in scoring last year with a 77.2 average, Voy followed with an average of 77.7, Hagen, 78.3, Todd Huber, 79.4 and Wayne Vinkavich, who is not on this year’s squad, rounded out the top five golfers with an 81.2 average.
Coach Kitzman figures on LaCrosse, last year’s defending champion, Whitewater, last year’s runner up and Stevens Point to be the teams to beat if Oshkosh is to win the WSUC championship.
Mike Spiczenski, who led the team in scoring last year, figures that this is the year for Oshkosh to take the conference golf championship. He com-mentee that “Team experience and depth will be the team's biggest aid.’ He also stated that “many other teams lost players; whereas Oshkosh has just about everybody back.” Mike figures on Whitewater and LaCrosse to be their main rivals for the WSUC Golf Title.
The WSUC will have their entire golf season in
concentration on the course
the fall this year. Last year all non conference meets were held in the fall and conference meets held in the spring.
This is the first year that the conference season will be held in the fall, and, like most new things, it has its advantages and disadvantages. One good point about the entire season being held in the fall is that there is more time to reschedule rainouts; which poses a big problem in the short spring season. A second advantage is that the golfers are coming in at their best after a full summer of golf. This gives the squad member a chance to show the coach what he can really do.
The fall schedule also poses many problems. One major problem is that the conference champion will play in the NAIA championships in the spring, which means that one team in the conference will be playing year round. This team would have a definite advantage going into the fall the next year. Another big problem is that some seniors graduate at midterm and thus a senior who was on the conference championship team wouldn’t be eligible for the NAIA tournament. The fall schedule is only an experiment and may be subject to change after this season.
Chuck Voy, the only senior on this year’s team who is graduating at mid term, made this comment about the fall schedule, “The fall schedule is great in that the golfers will be in their prime, and if seniors who graduate at mid-term are allowed to play in the NAIA Tournament in the spring, the whole fall idea would be great.’’The Intramurals department’s new theme, "Do A New Thing In 73" is designed to give the opportunity of competing in a wide range of athletics to the UW-0 student. With an expanding program that includes special additions to athletic events as well as the formation of special interest groups, even the most timid are able to fit into the iM program.
In the fall when a young man’s heart turns to football, the IM program obliges with touch football leagues that are aimed at all levels of competition. From the residence halls to the fraternities and all the independents in between, IM sponsors a football program that makes even the most pretty eyes stop and take notice.
For those who still possess a yearning for the national pastime in the late summer and early winter, IM offers fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball. Of course the fairer sex must not be forgotten. Therefore, to keep both parties happy, co-ed and women’s softball are offered.
The winter months bring the competition inside and Kolf Sports Center comes alive with basketball and volleyball. Albee contributes to the yelling with a waterbasketball league. The turkey run tests the endurance of those wno think physical fitness is a daily thing.
The winter activities climax with a number of tournaments in the various sports. One-on-one, three-on-three, and team basketball tournaments are held as well as playoffs in the volleyball leagues.
Something new in intramurals this year is the formation of special interest groups. The general idea is for students to get involved with other students and at the same time learn a new skill or shape up on an old one.
Some of the groups to be formed are wrestling.
by jon hermanson
rugby, soccer, riflery, backpacking-camping-hiking, canoeing-rafting, archery, tennis-paddle tennis, bicycling, cross country, skiing, gymnastics, physical fitness and jogging, badminton, team handball, golf, and volleyball. In such activities the competition is not as keen as league IM. Development of skills that would be normally bypassed by the student over his four years at UW-0 is the intended outcome.
Super Jock is coming to UW-O! The IM department has yet another innovation. A decathelon type of event, the Super Jock Sweepstakes will be tne stiffest test yet of an athlete’s all-round ability. A participant will be tested in ten separate events and a point total will be tallied. Scheduled for the first week in October, the candidates will have four days to complete the events.
The ten events tentatively scheduled are 1) olacekicking a football for distance 2) shooting 25 Jreethrows of a basketball 3) running a 60 yd. dash and a standing long jump 4) hitting a softball off a tee 5) swimming two lengths of a pool, any stroke 6) bowling 7) ropejumping 8) bicycling 9) archery 10) a throwing event.
Champions will be named in each event as well as for the entire sweepstakes. Co educational, the Super Jock Sweepstakes is open to all students.
For the student who does not want to get involved in league competition, co-recreation hours are available in both Kolf and Albee.

Merritt to lead the way H
by jon hermanson
The 1973 version of the UW-0 cross country team is "very promising" according to coach Ron Akin.
Seven lettermen bolster a crop of young but confident harriers. How the young runners wul fair in conference competition will be determined by their desire to win.
Dave Merritt, one of two seniors on the team, is expected to lead the way. Last year’s Most Valuable Runner, Merritt qualified in national competition and is expected to improve on his record this year.
Another bright spot will be Kirk Ruhnke, a junior from Menasha. Last spring Ruhnke set records in the two mile and three mile events on the Titan track team.
Two freshmen showing great potential are Alan Vandenhouten, a 57", 130 lb. harrier from Luxemburg and Dan Kinnard also from Luxemburg who has been slowed in the early going by a liver ailment.
Akin says the conference is very tough this year and anybody can win it. "Our team has confidence
though," says Akin. He says the season records are all laid on the line on the conference meet where “all the eggs are thrown in one basket."
Along with Merritt and Ruhnke the other lettermen returning this year are Selwyn Griffith, a senior from Trinidad, Tom Klenke, a sophomore from Green Bay, Rick Koceja, a sophomore from Milwaukee, Gary Krueger, a sophomore from Appleton, Steve Ross, a junior from Trinidad, Russ Hoxtell, a junior from Oshkosh, and Pat Pretty, a senior from Cedar burg.
Other members are Larry Burrack, Bill Dickrell, Randy Ebben, Robin Jennings, Steve La Salle, David Leffler, Jim Shomberg, Greg Sundquist, Niel Vandenhouten and Joel Weddig.
The Titan’s schedule has nine meets plus the conference meet to be held at Stout.

“I know everybody is picking us, and that’s a tough position to be in.” says Titan head coach Russ Young of the upcoming season.
Losing only six seniors from last year’s squad, the Titans are heavy favorites to repeat as WSUC champions. The 1972 champions chalked up a perfect 8-0 record in conference games and became the first team since 1966 to go through a conference season undefeated.
The offense should be the strong point for the Titans this vear. Eight of the 11 starters are back on offense, led by all-conference running back Tim VanderVelden.
VanderVelden gained 880 yards in 195 attempts for a 4.5 yard per carry average last year. He also was leading scorer for the Titans with 54 points. With a potential 1000 yard season awaiting the Kimberly native, VanderVelden is optimistic about the 1973 season.
“The year we’ll win for sure,” says VaderVelden, but he adds, "We’ll have to wait until after a few games to see just how good we’ll be.’’
VanderVelden is complimented nicely in the backfield by Dan Feldt who gained 670 yards in 153 attempts for a 4.4 yard average.
Pete Koupal returns at quarterback for his third year. The senior from Eau Claire passed for 853 yards last year and a 13.3 yd. average.
do it again?

The kicking duties will be shared by Dan Wadie and Brian Zunse. Wadie handles the placekicking chores and Zuhse does the punting. Wadie hit on lY of 24 extra points and six field goals for 35 points last year and averaged 51.6 yards on his kicxoffs. Zuhse punted for a 34.1 yard average.
Six of 11 starters return to the defense. Dave Reno, Tom Rammer, Scott Kronenwetter, Mark Solowicz, Larry Daub, and Brian Zuhse will try to hold together a defense that lost all of it secondary. Chuck Ebert, Mark Ristau, and Glenn Van Boxel have completed their eligibility leaving the pass defense up to untested sophomores and juniors.
Zuhse, one of the surest tacklers in the league, had a great season last year and will again be the "monster man”.
“I like this group because they have such a good attitude and because they are just so determined to do what they think they can do," says Young.
Behind Oshkosh, Whitewater and La Crosse figure to be the top contenders in line for theWSUC crown. Platteville is perennial threat and Stevens Point is claimed to be a dark horse candidate.

Summer jobs have been considered a “drag" by most college students since the beginning of time. Take a look at these guys. They re dirty slobs, right? But they’re happy with their jobs. You ask “how the Oshkosh” can anyone enjoy getting that filthy? (I would say) they’re enjoying living part of history

Maybe they’re crazy but this is the kind of job that would make some enjoy their summer, despite

61Radio Station of of the Titans.
by dave lesnick
finishing touches being put on rst's new tower addition
Students no longer have to scan the dial searching for progressive rock, folk, jazz or classical music to satisfy their musical appeal. Since September 17, WRST-FM has occupied a new frequency on the FM dial, plus offering students a new musical format.
Now at 90.3 and operating with 960 watts stereo, reception has been increased to cover a 20-25 mile radius with good solid reception. Dr. Robert Snyder, coordinator of the UW-0 radio and TV film department, cited two major reasons for the increased power. "The major justification was that students living off campus and area commuters will no longer have difficulty in receiving the improved signal." Secondly, he said they have received occasional complaints for interfering with WITI-TV (channel 6) out of Milwaukee.
With our new signal and with more forms of music programming, particularly related to evolving student musical tastes, we’ve increased our listening audience. By using the public airwaves and going into people’s homes, the broadcasters have a responsibility not to offend or upset the listeners, by a poor
§uality performance,” said Dr. nyder.
The emergence of WRST as a major radio station is the product of a massive task Snyaer un- w dertook when he came to Oshkosh in 1964. Hired with the

continued from page 62
purpose of erecting a broad based academic program and establishing a broadcasting program, Dr. Snyder said he started out with nothing. There was one course, Introduction to Radio and TV, which had seven students enrolled. The only piece of equipment they had was a tape recorder from the speech department.
The following semester, 27 students enrolled in an announcing course he had added. With this indication of student interest, Dr. Snyder initiated the development of a university radio station. In the fall of 1965, the radio and TV film department housed the radio station in a building vacated by an old lumber company. They moved to the Arts and Communications Building in the summer of 1971. The original home of WRST was located on the corner of Pearl and Blackhawk, which today is a parking lot on the south end of
Installation of equipment in the original building started in January of 1966 when a construction permit was obtained from the Federal Communications Commission. Additional staff was added to counteract the rapid growth of the department. Dr. Snyder trained students and took them to Milwaukee to get their third class license so they would be ready when WRST signed on the air.
But red tape prevented program testing. After construction of the station and having it tested, Dr. Snyder said he requested the call letters WSUO-FM. “The FCC never said anything until we requested program testing, which really broke things down into time," Snyder said. The telegram stated that the call letters nad already been assigned to a ship. This
original home of wrst
pushed back their inaugural on the air some 30 days, as the radio station had to be reassigned call letters.
Someone suggested to run the call letters in order (they’re easier to remember that way), so Dr. Snyder chose WRST, “Radio Station of the Titans." He added “It's a good thing to have call letters with a meaning."
So WRST once again had to notify all area radio stations, that they were beginning program testing. Their application for a license had been submitted, and the new call letters were WRST. Dr. Snyder said "After giving the local radio stations the 30 day option of challenging our proposal, and particularly our call sign, we finally aired."
So, when WRST first went on the air in 1966, they operated on the frequency 88.1 at 10 watts from 6-10 p.m. five days a week.
except for weekend sporting events. They operated with facilities totaling approximately $6300. Today, WRST operates with facilities worth approximately $30,000, aired 5 days a week for 16V hours, plus weekend programming.
In a period of nine years, Dr. Snyder has been instrumental in the growth of the radio and television film department from a one course curriculum with 7 students, to a modern department offering over 200 students either a major or minor in the communications field, n

73YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
by dove rank
You go to college to get an education, right? And the very first lesson you learn-even before the semester begins-is that you are going to have to pay plenty to get it. One of the biggest expenses facing the incoming student is the cost of housing. To have a bed to sleep on with a reasonably rainproof roof over it takes perhaps the largest bite out of a student's expense account. In a few cases the cost can do more than that to a student.
What are the students getting to live in? How much does it cost? The answers vary depending on the situation. A definite answer to each is difficult. Housing around the campus runs from nice to delapidated and the prices range from reasonable to outrageous.
Besides rent there are other expenses which dig into a student's pocketbook. Utilities in some cases are not included in the rent. This can run from a few dollars each month to thirty dollars or more if you are renting a house. Occasionally, the student will be required to pay the sixty dollars security deposit Public Service asks for to turn on the utilities.
Want a phone? It is eighteen dollars to have it installed. Depending whether you have a party line or a private, have a Centrex or a Televisit, the monthly cost can range from five to ten dollars plus long distance calls.
Food also costs money. Depending on your appetite, estimates for a weekly budget start at five dollars and jump to twenty dollars according to one person asked.
There are also all those little items which don't cost much individually but have the annoying knack of gobbling up a lot of money when considered together. There is parking. Some people are lucky and get it free, others do not. Don't forget
the money spent on lightbulbs. toilet paper, cleanser, room deodorizers and the hundred or so other miscellaneous items.
One other expense worth mentioning is laundry. Unless you take it home to "Ma" every other week it is about two to four dollars a month.
Everyone has their little "dream pad" in mind when they go out looking for housing. One or two actually get it. What arc the rest of the students at UW-0 getting?
For Freshmen. Sophomores and some upper classmen housing can mean only one thing: a dorm. There are 11 dormitories on campus, most of them co-ed. The advantages of the dorms are obvious, even to their most vehement opponents.
Living right on campus, one is closest to classes and right in the middle of the action. There is no worrying about paying utilities, no cooking or dishes, a minimal amount of cleaning. The list of conveniences could go on.
But all is not idyllic with the dorms. The privacy leaves something to be desired. Living with two to 900 other students can be a problem, and the food is not exactly what mother used to make.
The price for this mixed bag of blessings varies. For the privilege of sharing a 10' by 16' cubicle with a friend (or stranger) it will cost $490.00 per semester if you want to live in Fletcher or Stewart which do not have private phone$. If you want a phone then the cost jumps to $520.00 per semester.
Say you do not care to have a roommate. It will cost you $620.00 per semester without a phone or $680.00 with a phone.
In Donncr Hall the Housing Office is
trying something new. They have punched a few holes in the walls to make some two-room suites. Cost? The same as a single room with phone. $680 per semestcr--to be divided among three, two or one residents depending on how many can stomach living together.
Beside the cost for room there is also the cost for a meal ticket wich is mandatory for freshman and sophomore dorm residents. Ten meals per week cost $503.00 per semester. A 20 meal plan charges $565.00 per semester.
Why do the dorms cost as much as they do?
According to Jeff Mossoff. assistant director of housing, it is because the Housing Office is not state funded. Each year a budget of over two million dollars is estimated. But the money comes only from the rent charged students, revenue obtained from vending machines, washer-dryers and snack bar profits and guests, such as the Experimental Aircraft Association visitation every summer. The actual total fluctuates depending on the generosity of the sources.
Mossoff explained that the budget is reviewed every month to see if expenses would have to be cut. If the budget is being overtaxed, services at the dorms, the man hours of personel and supplies to the dorm would be reduced depending on the need.
Estimates for annual maintenance costs are hard to determine Mossoff said. But he explained there are "Some type of major repairs in all of the dorms each year." He mentioned such things as locks, the woodwork and electrical wiring as some areas needing maintenance.
Mossoff also mentioned the $35,000 roofing job done to Scott. Gruenhagen and Fletcher recently as an example of the cost of maintaining the dorms.
Heating for the dorms. Mossoff said, was budgeted at 70 to 80 thousand dollars each year. The water and sewer bill used to be around $2,800 a year, he said. But because of the new pollution control rates, he projected the bill at $45,000 for this year.As large as these expenses are. half of the annual budget is tied up with paying off the bond indebtedness of the dorms. And this must be paid every year. Mossoff said that the housing office was pleasantly surprised to find out the state would declare one building as surplus and take the bill off their hand for the year. Housing quickly let the state pay for South Gruenhagen. This was the first year the state has done this Mossoff said.
Even with something like two million dollars to play around with, the Housing Office still sweats from month to month.. As Mossoff explained, "We run a business. And we do not know until fall what our revenue will be. When we’re down even 100 students you can sec we’re down a lot of money."
The dorms have a maximum capacity for 5,000 students. According to Mossoff. only 3.200 students are now living in campus housing.
Dorms. You grumble about the prices while the Housing Office hopes it has some money left over for June. But do they cost more than living off-campus?
Off-campus housing. The magical words. Freshmen and Sophomores living in the dorms dream of moving there. Upperclassmen trudge back to the dorm after a year of living "off,’’ disgruntled, complaining of the hassles.
People are always overheard saying. “I'm living in a house on Algoma with five other girls." or "Me and three other guys got a place on Wisconsin." What are they paying? What are they getting for their money? It all depends on the situation and what the student is willing to pay for.
For $-15 a month a girl has a one room apartment in a house two blocks from campus. The same house also has a three room apartment renting for $75 a month and twin, two room apartments for a little over $60 a month. On all four the rent includes utilities.
A little further up the same street eight girls are paying $50 a month each for a house. The utilities are extra.
On Cherry street, three men have a nice three bedroom upstairs apartment for $96 a month plus utilities.
About four blocks from campus four men are renting a two bedroom furnished apartment. Each tenant pays $230 a semester. The price includes utilities.
There is a four bedroom apartment for four girls on Jackson Street, near the courthouse. The girls there pay $275 a semester-each.
On Pearl Street four girls rent a small, furnished, three bedroom house. Each girl pays $280 a semester to live there.
Further on Pearl, four more girls rent a three bedroom house for only $200 a month, but they also have to pay utilities.
There is a five bedroom house on Algoma which seven girls call home. Each month they split the $300 rent and the utilities.
Eight girls each pay $265 a semester to
live in a four bedroom house on High Street with only two space heaters for heating.
Those are some examples of part of the cost of off-campus housing. Walk any street radiating from the campus and you could find many, many more. Each different in its own peculiar way. But all similar in one respect-thcy all cost money. Whether they cost too much is a matter of opinion.
But what are students paying for?
According to Richard Mattheis, Oshkosh housing inspector, they are getting a wide variety. "Some of it is quite nice.” he said. “But at the other end of the extreme are the places that you can't imagine that a person would live there. In the university area you find a wide extreme.”
In the three months that Mattheis has been housing inspector he has seen a number of houses. He described the average student apartment as being in a typical two story house converted into a duplex. The house is around 50 to 60 years old and well maintained. The inside of the house is in livable condition. The plaster is not falling off the walls, the ceiling is not sagging.
Generally though. Mattheis finds problems with the wiring of the house. The minimum housing code calls for one outlet and one light fixture, or two outlets for each room. There is a problem with thjs. Mattheis explained, not so much with violations as with the minimum standard being inadequatefor a student with a stereo, an electric clock, a table lamp and whatever else. This leads to extention cords criss-crossing the floor and the possibility of overloading the circuits. Mattheis called this a bad situation.
On the average, the condition of off-campus housing does not break minimum housing standards. But still, claims of “rip-off" are heard on the mall and in classrooms every semester. Why?
Mark Mitchell, last year’s Oshkosh Student Association (OSA) president and now working with OSA's Legal Aids on a Tenant Union, is quite vocal with his
opinions on housing:
"If it's a house they (landlords) rent to students, they’ll put seven or eight students in it and generally they'll charge 40 to 50 dollars. And the average student says. Okay. 50 dollars, not bad.’ -and it isn’t. But when you consider the fact that the place is a dump and there’s eight kids paying 50 dollars, that's 400 dollars a month for a real pit. That's where the rip-off comes in. Individually it may not be so bad. But when you figure what you’re getting for your 50 dollars - you're getting one-eighth of a real pit."
Steve Ballard, OSA director of legal aids, points out another area where students can get burned-the security deposit:
"Students are not aware of the fact that they should fill out an apartment condition form stating the damage to the existing structure and the apartment they are renting so that when they move out they can receive their full security deposit. Many times a landlord will not fix damage from one semester, or the end of like May or June, until September so that the student that moves in in September is stuck with the same damages that the student that moved out in Jane is going to pay for because they don’t fill an apartment condition form. These things can be picked up at the housing office or within our office."
A third sore point, leases, was summed up by Mitchell. "A lot of students don’t
75have leases and they usually feel they’re getting a good deal. But the fact is you usually end up getting screwed if you don’t have a lease of any kind. If you don't have a written contract it can really be argued who’s responsible for what. On a normal house, the landlord may be responsible for something, but if you don’t have a lease he can say that you were responsible and it was in a verbal agreement. How do you say he’s not telling the truth? You don’t have any proof."
"There really shouldn't be any reason why students and landlords in the town can not live together." Ballard said. "But it really comes down to the fact that either one side or the other does not understand the contract that they have signed or their rights under the law. And that's what we hope to do. We hope to explain the rights of both sides so that everyone will live happily."
Buzz Barlow, legal aids lawyer, took a less vehement stand on student housing. "Students are getting primarily what they pay for. I don't think housing is ever worth the price from a tenant's standpoint. From a landlord's standpoint it probably is.”
"If they (students) enter into a lease agreement with one of the bigger landlords that has a multi-apartment complex, they’re usually getting a decent place to live. But they're paying a lot more for it. Students that are trying to save money and cut corners, that are going into houses that are renting from landlords that I would say are far from scrupulous, are getting ripped off. There's no question about that. There are good landlords in the city and there are bad."
Barlow estimated that there are from six to twelve bad landlords which he deals with on an almost monthly basis.
'They're the one’s that operate on the ignorance of the tenant."Barlow explained. 'They have a limited knowledge of the law themselves, but they feel they have more knowledge than the person they are ripping off."
Barlow also talked about one aspect of
the cost of housing which most tenants fail to realize. Speaking on utilities and the occasional student who splits leaving unpaid bills, he said. "A student that is now an adult at 18 years of age is establishing a credit rating for their entire future adulthood. And if you get a reputation or you get on a negative list with the Wisconsin Power and Electric or with Wisconsin Telephone Company in Oshkosh—say you move to Milwaukee after you graduate and have a job— They're going to somehow pick up the fact that you had an overdue balance and you're going to have a lot of trouble getting service."
What do the students living off-campus think about the prices they are paying and the conditions they live in. At three places 'The Last Quiver" found out.
Lakeview Terrace, one of those "multiapartment complexes.” apartment 305 A. Tim Hennig. a junior majoring in finance, shares his apartment with three other guys. There are two bedrooms, a kitchenette with a table-high divider partitioning it off from the livingroom. An air conditioner is embedded in the wall below the aluminum frame windows. There is a small bathroom and the wash basin is in the hallway which connects the bedrooms to the rest of the apartment. The place is clean and efficient looking.
The four tenants pay a total of $240 a month for the apartment.
Hennig has many complaints about the apartment. Most of them rest on the size. 'The kitchen is too damn small. No place to eat. There's no table as such. You can't even get four guys down together."
He also claimed there was inadequate cupboard space and that the bathroom was too small.
Hennig lived in a dorm for two and half years. He finally moved out to get some peace and quiet. "Lakeview is quieter than in a dorm-not a hell of a lot though."
Sharing an apartment with three others has handicaps. "A guy comes in at two in the morning a little drunk, you can't help but wake up."
Hennig also mentioned some good points about the apartment. He con-
sidered the furniture a strong point. Although the two chairs in the living room were torn, he said the management has promised to replace them. The air conditioning was another plus.
'The location's pretty good." he said. "It’s walking distance." Hennig also considers the place as being less restrictive than in a dorm. He mentioned plenty of parking space for tenants as another advantage.
But overall, he was dissatisfied with Lakeview. Hennig said that if he had it to do over he would move into a house to get more space.
“Let me put it this way." he said. "If I hadn't signed a contract in May, I wouldn't have come here."
Mark Rakow and Mark Margolis share a small two bedroom apartment with two other guys at 819 John Street. They live about a half block from campus. Besides the bedrooms there is a kitchen and a living room. They also have access to the basement with a recreation room. They share the basement with the people living upstairs.
For all that each tenant pays $62.50 a month. The rent includes utilities.
Rakow and Margolis consider the nearness to campus a major advantage. They both agreed that the building itself is in good condition but complained about the filth they found when they moved in. "It really was a hassle getting it together, cleaning up-making it livable 'Rakow said, adding that they were only now getting ahead in cleaning up.
Margois compared the apartment with living in a dorm. He felt the main ad vantage was more freedom. "You’re able to live anyway you wish, come and go as you please. Save money if you feel like it.
There's more freedom -even at $250 dollars a month. You get what you pay for. I guess.”
So far. there has not been any trouble with the landlord. But Rakow and Margolis seemed cautious about him.
'The landlord seems to co-operate-if it doesn’t cost him.” Margolis said.
When they moved in they asked for a new stove. The landlord gave them one -
at least a different used one.
Rakow added. "If we do everything, we can do what we want."
When asked what they considered their apartment's worth. Margolis, perhaps with the prices of his native New York influencing his opinion, stated $150 a month. Rakow’s extimate was even lower:$80 a month.
Not all students living off-campus are dissatisfied with their surroundings. The girls living at 546 Algoma Street (a rooming house) for the most part seem to enjoy living there. It's an old building. One of those places that always seem gray and dingy no matter how often it is cleaned.
The house is big enough for 19 girls, but only 14 are presently living there. Ther are nine sleeping rooms of various sizes: three singles, four doubles and two "quads". A single room rents for $200 per semester, a double for $190 per student each semester. The quads go for $170 per student a semester.
The girls have to sign a lease for the full school year from August to May. If a girl wants to move out after the first semester she must find another to sublease from her. If not. the girl must still pay $40 a month for the second semester.
There is also a small efficiency apartment partioned off from the rest of the house. A couple rents if for $110 a month.
The rooming house has two kitchens, two bathrooms and two furnished lounges. Each floor has one of each.
Pat Larabell. a nursing student and the house manager since the end of May. is the liason between tenants and landlords for the rooming house. Her duties include minor maintenance (changing lightbulbs and such), handling contracts (she gets a four dollar commission for each one signed) and making up a list of weekly duties for the girls. These duties include cleaning the bathroom, taking out the garbage and vacuuming the lounges.
For those familiar with a dorm, a comparison between house manager larabell and a Resident Assistant (RA! becomes obvious.
Tenant Jean Ellis, a Junior studying social work, denies any such similarity.
"Pat is an easy person to get along with. She asks you to do something not because she has to but because she wants to keep the place neat.”
The residents in the rooming house agree that there is more room than in the dorms. Ellis goes so far as to say the house has more originality because of the multi-sized rooms.
Although there are no formal restrictions on the girls there are some mutually understood rules to be followed.
The doors are locked at 10 p.m. but everyone has a key so there is no problem with hours. It is a mutual agreement between the landlords and the tenants that there will be no overnight male guests. The girls also realize there are general commitments they must follow, such as keeping the kitchens and bathrooms clean and keeping the noise down. The girls also work out any problems they may have among themselves with little or no involvement from the landlord.
Larabell is happy with her situation and. having previously commuted from Neenah. enjoys the closer involvement with campus life the house gives her. She feels the rent is reasonable although she admits the house is “kind of a hole."
Ellis quickly modified Larabell's statement by saying. "I've seen worse places. I suppose you can’t have everything."
These then have been some examples of the housing students can find near the campus. They are by no means all inclusive. But they can give you some idea what housing is like both on- and off-campus. It can safely be said no one has found really cheap housing. When you take into consideration what you get for your money few places can be called ideal. If you can afford it. you can get a fairly nice place, possibly even close to campus. If you want to save money the quality of the commodity involved goes down.
So you get what you pay for. If you are cautious and smart you can get through four or five years of college without too much hassle from landlords or the housing office. If you're not too bright you could get burned. But one thing stands constant-a lot of bread will flow from your hands because of housing. It is all a matter of where you want it to go.
The University has been chosen by the Wisconsin Department of Local Affairs and Developement for training undergraduate Native American and Chicano students for urban affairs positions.
Six UW-0 students, who are either Native American or Chicanos, have been selected for scholarships amounting to $3,200 each for a 12-month study and work program, Dr. Clyde E. DeBerry, assistant to the UW-0 chancellor for multicultural affairs, announced.
These students are John Mireles, and Carlos Mireles of Racine, Audrey Kenyon of West Bend, Angelo Castillo of Neenah, Sherry Lopez of route 1, Oneida and Helmuth Kosbab of route 1, Bowler.

There doesn’t seem to be any quieter dorm on campus than Breese hall. At night the halls are so quiet that if a pin were dropped on the fourth floor, the residents on first would think an earthquake hit.
Breese hall is another co-ed dorm. The lower floors house male residents and the upper floors house women.
It was the first hall to get a fresh paint job on the inside. The bright colors make the entire concept of community living more desirable.
Restricted to upperclassmen, Breese has had the reputation of consistently getting one of the highest total gpa’s on campus.

Clems ns Hall
80Originally Clemans Hall was to be closed this year. However, due to the large number of contracts returned late to the Housing Office, it was kept open to provide ample space to house students.
Located next to Reeve Union, Clemans is traditionally involved in numerous intramural and campus wide events.
Clemans is one of the oldest dorms on campus being built in 1960. It houses 208 men.
The dorm was named for Earl Clemans, a former physics instructor and later vice-president of the university.
81A new look in resident halls appeared in Donner Hall this year.
On certain floors the cubical style of rooms was abandoned and two or three room suites were introduced. The two room suites have a capacity of four people and the three room suite can hold up to six people.
Located behind Radford Hall, Donner represents a new concept in community living. In keeping with it’s tradition of being first to try new ideas, Donner now can be given the title of pioneer in the residence hall program.
First it was an upperclassmen dorm, then it became coeducational, and now it possesses the suite.
Isn’t college life suite, real suite?

Preferring to retain that feminine mystique,
the Gruenhagen girls will go unidentified.
Only one tower of Gruenhagen will be open this year. A decrease in enrollment and state aid received on university housing were two of the reasons for the other tower’s closure.
The women’s tower still is open and thriving. "The Nunnery’’ as it is fondly called by it’s residents has a capacity for 585 women.
Gruennagen was the first of UW-O’s two high rise complexes built in 1966. The ten storv structure is located on the south end of campus next to the tennis courts.
Gruenhagen Hall was named for Richara E. Gruenhagen, an instructor at the university from 1909 to 1947.
North Scott Hall, the men’s tower of the complex, houses 585 men.
Scott along with Gruenhagen were pioneers in co-ed housing at UW-O. The co-ed housing policy is now almost campus wide.
Both Scott Hall and Gruenhagen Hall complexes have snack bars located on the first floor. This year for the first time
beer is allowed to be sold in the snack bars.
Each tower of Scott has a housing staff of 20 members including a head resident, assistant head resident and 18 resident assistants. __

South Scott Hall, the women’s tower, is one half of the Scott Hall complex opened in 1967.
This ten story structure which houses 585 women is located on the south end of campus at the corner of Algoma and Wisconsin Street.
An annual event co sponsored by both towers is the Scott Hall
Regatta held each autumn at Menominee Park.
The dorm is named after Louise E. Scott, a member of the Department of Education from 1929 to 1962.
Editor's note: Thefollowing resident halls did not want
a group picture taken. Only the building picture and copy appear.Tom Lieding returns as head resident at Fletcher Hall for the second time. What does he bring
An extra floor of women, (last year there was only one floor of women, ) a pool table (for those who are sharks and have the extra time.) and an attitude that favors the student.
Fletcher is the largest of the low rise dorms housing 520 students. A zig-zag of a buildin with purple, blue and olive dra hallways, it is always the same place--“The Animal Farm."
In keeping with its reputation of being a “jock" dorm. Nelson has taken another step in promoting athletics. Its head resident, Gary Kane, founded the Armchair Quarterback Club.
The club has a series of objectives that they attempt to meet every Tuesday night. They analize the previous week’s Packer game, write down suggestions for Coach Devine (which are sent to him,) make up plays that the Pack could use, and make predictions on the upcoming games.
Being a small dorm, the friendships grow close and lasting. For the most part, the noise is minimal and the pace is slow, but not the attitude and vigor of its residents.
92Ever notice how hard it is to call a girl at Stewart Hall? Along with Fletcher Hall, Stewart is the only other dorm that does not have phones in the room.
But Stewart docs have its advantages. Like any small dorm, close relationships develop. It is situated away trom the hustle and bustle on campus.
Peace, quiet, and just a nice place to live.
i Stewart Hall
Two years ago Taylor was one of those dorms, full to the brim with lovely women, and a primary target for panty raids.
Now it seems, to promote a better education for students, it has been changed into a coeducational dorm.
Actually, it is nothing more than two separate buildings connected by a lobby.
Even though it holds 504 students, Taylor still contains the small dorm atmosphere. There is not the exciting social life found on other parts of campus in Taylor even though it is located almost in the heart of campus. But still the good times are there.
Looking for a football gam e? Webster Hall has som e speedy backs and some pretty hefty linemen. Or is it some hefty pretty linemen? At any rate. Webster Hall provides some of the most pleasing competition that any team could want.
For nine months out of the year. Webster houses 202 women. (No, it’s not a home for unwed mothers.) Built in 1957, Webster is named for Emily Webster, a former m athem atics instructor at the university.

Ekosh. Wisconsin Last Quiver versity of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Oshkosh. Wisconsin 54901Issue Insights
Perhaps one of the few sectors of the employee public that has not as yet strongly unionized are college professors and instructors. This issue of the Last Quiver approaches the faculty unionization question from severw viewpoints. Franklin Utech of the UW-0 art department supports unionization as an instrument for collective bargaining. Utech is chairman of WEACT, a recently formed group of faculty with the purpose of strengthening the faculty position in relation to the Board of Regents, legislators, and the university president. Utech feels that collective bargaining is the only effective instrument whereby faculties can share authority with administrators.
Carrying an opposite line of thought is Milton Mitchell of the UW-0 Economics Department. Mitchell, a member of the longer established Association of University of Wisconsin Faculties (TAUWF), feels that unionization would ruin the professionalization of the faculties. He wants to avoid the adversary role of the faculty and administration that would result from faculty unionization. Mitchell adds that faculty would have neither time nor money if they are carrying a full teaching load, to participate in union activities. The argument both men provide to substantiate their position makes for informative and interesting reading.
Three months ago the Council for Economic Developement issue a report proposing that more financial assistance be given to poor students and that tuition for those college students better able to pay should be raised. The proposal drew attacks public college officials, student groups, the AFL-CIO, and others with a stake in cheap education for the middle class. They said higher education would be limited to the very poor and the very rich. The middle income group would experience difficulty in financing a college education.
The Last Quiver obtained permission from the National Observer to reprint an article from its October 13, 1973 issue dealing with the Councils’ proposal. To wet your reading appetite, if the
proposal would become mandatory, students would be forced to pay an extra $500 in addition to current costs while attending state universities.
Money and it’s distribution is a recurrent theme in this month’s Last Quiver. Governor Patrick Lucey came to the Oshkosh campus in early November and assured students that his proposed user fee will not be instituted. The user fee would have required students to pay a fee for most sports activities, both as spectators and as participants. Free lectures and other extracurricular activities would have been subject to charge along with sports.
Staff member Tom Wildermuth has covered this issue and the other topics raised at Lucey’s visit for the issue.
Early this fall members of the women’s athletic department placed a coffin in front of Dempsey. They illustrated what they thought was the aieing condition of women’s athletics due to lack of funds. Jon Hermanson provides us with the facts and figures concerning the women’s problem. And, as a true reflection of his musical prowess, Jon has provided us with a bit-o-philosophy from the rock person David Crosby to better illustrate the female dilemna.
For those who can remember years past, registration back then was certainly more traumatic than it is now. Pre-registration has diminished the confusion and anxiety that prevailed when cards were first secured and schedules made out at the time of registration. BUI Schlamer, however, sees improvement that is stUl needed, and weighs these improvements with the help of various faculty and administrators. BUI presents ideas that would save time and money.
The Greeks hold their own in this issue of the Last Quiver, with pictures and descriptions of their respective organizations. Relevancy and strength of purpose flavor the existence of both the sororities and fraternities on the UW-0 campus.

Anyone who’s read Evelyn Waugh’s black comedy, THE LOVED ONE, will no doubt remember the round, pinkcheeked master mortician, Mr. Joyboy. His specialty in the field of corpse preparation was to adorn the face with a bright, cheery smile before sending it on to the' final stages of makeup.
Oft times he would betray his mood by the type of smile the body wore. There were also days when his lady fair in the cosmetics department could detect amorous intent because sne knew that the smile on a certain cadaver was created especially for her.
THE LOVED ONE was written some years ago and the setting was California, a state often thought of as the modern “Transylvania.” However the latest chapter in this evolution in graveside manner has occurred a little bit closer to home. Don Wells, a mobile home repairman from Jackson, Michigan, has invented what he calls a "talking tombstone."
Just as the name implies, Wells’ tombstone relates the history of the deceased in words and pictures. This is done through the help of a movie projector and eight track stereo tape player, powered by solar batteries.
The gravestone, it seems, would resemble the flat marker more than the elaborate headstones of the last century. It would actually be a screen set at a 45 decree angle to the ground. The mourners would gather in front of the thing and switch it on with a remote control unit much like those used for remote control televisions.
The content of the film and the tape are pretty much left up to the family of tne deceased. Hopefully the dead man has had enough fore sight to prepare the film before he dies. How nice it would be to see old Uncle Charlie sitting on his front steps petting his dog or maybe standing in front of nis garage, waving!
If Uncle Cnarlie died suddenly, the film could feature his death notice from the paper and maybe the funeral and interment. His dog could be photographed in silhouette against a spectacular sunset, howling his mournful eulogy for the final
shot of the film.
The eight track stereo tape provides yet another field to experiment with. If Uncle Charlie was a practical joker, he might get a kick out of recording the tape himself. (“Gee it’s dark down here!’’) But if Uncle Charlie were a sober and relatively sane man, perhaps a memorial speech by a famous orator or his favorite hymn sung by a local choir would be more to his liking.
Wells has designed four different models of this final home entertainment center, ranging from a simple silent film all the way up to a complex, multi media experience manned by a full control board. This last one is used in mausoleums only.
Most of the devices are encased in steel and telescoped into the ground beneath the screen. They are then secured by concrete,making the whole unit burglar proof. The remote control unit makes it impossible for anyone but the immediate family to see the presentation.
Wells, who has already applied for a patent on the thing, estimates the cost to be anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000. There is one working model of the “talking tombstone" in existence, but it won’t be marketed for some time yet.
Is it a reflection of modern society to have a seemingly clever inventor create something with such an apparent lack of taste?
Perhaps it’s outmoded Victorian ideals that find this offensive. The "Talking Tombstone" may well be the next step in the logical progression of things. What field exploits it s victims more than the funeral directors of America? The poor bereaved are shuffled from one room to the next to choose a needlessly expensive casket to be used in a 45 minute ceremony and then shoved into a hole in the ground and never seen again.
Don Wells has come up "with the ultimate memorial however crass and vulgar it may be. There are those who will buy it and appreciate it.
Yet going to put flowers on Uncle Charlie’s grave and seeing a show will revolutionize cemeteries all over the country, making them seem more like local Magnovox dealerships rather than graveyards. wa

Wisconsin’s Governor Patrick Lucey faced a barrage of questions from UW —Oshkosh students at an open forum on Nov. 5. Two areas dominated the uuestioning, the foremost being tne expelling of tenured faculty, and secondly the adoption of the user fee for students.
Lucey admitted that he was not thoroughly knowledgeable of the letting go of tenured faculty. He said tnat the student-faculty ratio determined how many faculty members are employed at UW—Oshkosh, and that a clause to this effect was written into the budget. Lucey said that if students feel tnat faculty are being let go for reasons not of this nature, it was the job of students to vent their discontent to the campus administration.
One student felt that certain of the 22 faculty being given their release were victims of their own progressive ideas. Lucey said the situation should be presented to the administration and the Regency. He added that if need be. the case could be presented to the court system.
Lucey attempted to clear up the misconceptions which stemmed from his proposed user fee. He said the original study was undertaken to determine the feasibility of lessening the tax payers burden by raising 1.000.000 on the state campuses. The money would have to come from the user fee, which would be an assessment to students attending sporting events and other extra-curricular activities.
Lucey was aware of opposition to his proposal, and assured the audience that he was convinced the study would not be acted upon by the State Legislature.

The women’s athletic program is suffering from a case of Deja Vu, and the perennial problems of equal women’s rights may force the program into a premature grave.
The functional and financial differences in the men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletic programs have initiated cries of help from the women’s department.
Over the past few years the women’s program has been slashed from ten sports to six. These six sports are coached by tnree women faculty members who also carry fulltime teaching positions.
Women faculty members feel that such time committments tend to deteriorate the quality of both their teaching and coaching. They are currently fighting for release time similar to male coaches.
The department feels also that it is one or two members understaffed, which in part explains the reason for the heavy time committment of women coaches.
While it insists that money is not the primary issue, the department showed that with additional funding, an extra member could be hired, and perhaps a full time athletic director and(or) a publicity director could be hired.
Janet Moldenhauer, gymnastics and swimming coach, said that the department just wants to be on an equal basis witn the men’s department, although they do not want more money than their counterpart.
Currently, the men’s department allocation is $50,000 for the 11 sports offered, while the women have been allocated $9,000 for their six sports.
In order to bring this issue to the forefront, the
women's department held a mock funeral to protest the lack of funds and the dropping of the lour sports from the program. They also contacted Glen Lloyd, Action Man of Channel 11 in Green Bay. "At least we’ve got people thinking about it,” said Dr. Phyllis Roney, head of women’s physical education.
Moldenhauer also said that it is too bad that they have to sensationalize the issue, but she affirmed the fact that people have to be aware of the situation. Moldenhauer said that it should be made clear that the situation is not a “war" against their male counterparts, but she just wants to see women get a fair shake.
The female ranks have more than held their own inconference competition. UW—0 teams have been at or near the top in each of the sports offered.
In basketball , last year, the girls team placed second in the conference, and is expected to be a top contender this year. The women’s gymnastics team was NAIA sectional champions last year, and have an excellent chance to repeat again this year.
The women’s field hockey team is always near the top, and this year is one of the powerhouses in the conference.
Hoping to improve on a third place finish last year, the women’s swim team has its eye on the title. Coach Moldenhauer said that this year’s team is greatly improved.
The track and field team is also expected to be a contender. Due to the facilities provided by Kolf Sports Center, the girls are given ample opportunity to work on fundamentals.
The proposed User Fee would kill women’s athletics, according to Helen Briwa, athletic director for womens athletics. Moldenhauer said that each of the departments would have to keeprecords on how often the equipment was used by their department to determine how much of the User Fee could be charged to them.
"I don’t know how they’re (administration) going to figure that out. Tney have computers over there (Dempsey Hall) that they don’t even know how to use,” said Moldenhauer.
There seems to be some resentment in the men’s department in regard to the charges made by the women.
Two members of the men’s prograjn, athletic director Eric Kitzman and gymnastics coach Ken Allen both fear that the women may be cutting in on the men’s funding.
According to Kitzman, the women have "stepped too far." He said that the women should worry more about the effects of the User Fee, than resorting to such drastic measures for equal rights.
Allen said that he supports their basic cause, but doesn’t approve of their methods. He said that such methods may tend to bring a poor image of the entire university.
Allen, who helps Moldenhauer with gymnastics,
agreed that the women coaches should be given more release time and financial backing.
Carla Goodrich, a member of the women’s track team, said that it seems funny that they (administration) can spend so much money on remodeling Dempsey, but have to scrape to find enough for some organizations, like women’s athletics.
Goodrich also said that those girls who are really interested in sports can compete in intramurals instead of intercollegiately. She said she would hate to take anything from men’s athletics, but it would br nice to be able to compete in a sport without worrying where the next dollar would come from.
As David Crosby said in Deia Vu, "We have all been here before.” The male-female struggle has been written about for centuries. UW—0 is about to add its own chapter.

Janet Moldenhauer A October 7973NEXTSTOP NAIA TOURNEY
A well balanced UW-Oshkosh Kolf squad coached by Eric Kitzman combined a first place finish in the conference tournament to go along with their perfect triangular meet record in capturing tne 1973 Wisconsin State University golf title.
Two sophomores. Les Webster and Mike Spiczenski. led the Titans with 3o-hole totals of 153. The Titans ended up on top in the two day conference tournament held on September 29-30 at Lawsonia Links. Green Lake. Webster's and Spiczenski's 153 totals tied them for medalist honors with three other conference players. In a playoff between the five, Spiczenski finished second and Webster third.
Eric Haug of LaCrosse won the playoff to become the conference medalist for the tournament. Freshman Rick Steggeman had a 155 total and senior Chuck Voy was in at 156. Sophomore Jeff Hagen shot a 160 and junior Todd Huber had a 166 to round out the tournament scores for Titan golfers. The team standings for the tournament saw Oshkosh on top with a total of 777, Whitewater second with a 789, and defending overall champion I,aCrosse came in at 7% to take third.
This conference tournament, however, was only part of what determine the conference golf championship. Each team in the conference also had four triangular conference meets before the conference tournament. The results of these meets are combined with the tournament results to determine what team is the overall champion.
Oshkosh went through the triangular schedule with an unblemished record of 8-0 against conference opponents. The triangular meets and the tournament gave Oshkosh the maximum number of points, 24, to make them overall champs. LaCrosse finished second overall and Whitewater came in third. Oshkosh will now go to the NAIA tournament in the spring.
The Titan golfers were also busy in September with some non-conference meets. The big victory in the non-conference schedule for Oshkosh was their winning of the Stevens Point Open. Eleven schools from Wisconsin. including UW-Madison, competed in tne meet.
UW-Oshkosn won the meet with a 386 total and the Badgers finished second with a 392 total. This marked the first time that Oshkosh has beaten the Badgers in golf.
In individual statistics for the year, Jeff Hagen led the Titans in scoring with a 75.3 average, Voy and Spiczenski followed with 77.0 averages.
Chuck Voy is the only senior who will be lost from this year’s championship team. Coach Eric Kitzman will have a lot to look forward to next year with his returning veterans.

National Coach of the Year, Ken Allen will have one co-captain returning in Jack McNeil. Of the 14 lettermen returning, only one will be lost through graduation at the end of this season.
McNeil was named All-American last year, placing first in the pommel (side) horse. Mike kavanagh is again expected to perform strongly on the parallel bars and Mike Bellos will be strong in the still rings competition. Both set personal high marks in their respective events last year.
With another national championship in sight, the Titans have one other goal-to beat LaCrosse in a dual meet. That has never been done by a Titan gymnastic team. The Titans beat LaCrosse for the first time last year at the nationals, but has yet to defeat them in a dual meet.
Hoping to improve on last years third place finish in conference, wrestling coach Tom Eitter may have the material to bring home a championship.
Ron Dworak, NAIA All-American and Most Valuable Poncher, is expected to be the leader of the team. Dworak finished with a 30-4-1 record last year and placed fifth in national competition.
Mickey Ripp, last year’s most improved wrestler, wfll begin his second year of competition with an individual title in sight. As a freshman, he was fourth in team points.
Dave Van Duser, recipient of the Most Dedicated Poncher award last year, is expected to improve on his record this year. Van Duser was second in team points despite sitting out national competition because of an injury last year.
This year’s team is more experienced but faces a tough schedule. The difficult schedule may keep individual records to a minimum, but the competition it affords will pay off at the conference meet.

It was a successful Homecoming for the most part. Considering that there was only a few hundred dollars allocated for the event, the students came out and made the most of it.
They put on their own yell-like-hell contest. The large masses did not assemble as in past years, but about 250 of them got together and yelled. They did not yell to fire up for the game the next day, they yelled to show their frustrations and disappointment in the Homecoming situation.
A oonfire and a fireworks display were to culminate the evening. The bonfire had a hardtime getting going. It shed a little light and faded away. In a way, it reflected the thoughts of those present about future Homecomings.
The day of the game brought new hopes to the followers of Homecoming. The sun shown brightly. The breeze was warm. It was as close to a perfect day as one could get.
Over 7,000 people sat in the sunshine of Titan Stadium and cheered and drank. The Titans did not disappoint them. A balanced attack of running and passing doomed the Bluegolds of Eau Claire. Chancellor Guiles and his wife were honorary king
“We hope that next year the students and administration can work together to make Homecoming better than ever," said the Chancellor.
I guess he realized the situation better than some of us thought he did.

Should the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh faculty unionize?
Statement by Dr. Utech
WEACT subscribes to the position of the National Education Association on Collective Bargaining. The following is a statement with WEACT modifications of the position by Donald Keck, Division of Higher Education, NEA.
We in the academic world pay lip service to a beautiful abstraction called "shared authority”--but we find little of it in actual practice.
This is because authority is not shared between people who are inherently unequal. Only when people or groups deal with each other as equals is authority really shared. Authority is shared by those who possess power only with others who
Should the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh faculty unionize?
Statement by Dr. Mitchell
In a sense we have had a faculty union on this campus for many years. An organization now called The Association of University of Wisconsin Faculties (TAUWF) is a union in the sense that it involved itself with faculty problems in many ways. But this organization has never been the militant, collective bargaining, administration baiting, strike initiating organization of the type that is now being proposed for the faculty on this campus.
The traditional approach of TAUWF (formerly AWSUF) has been to treat higher education faculty as professionals. Improvements of faculty salaries, benefits, rights, and privileges have been

possess power and know its uses. Governors, legislators, members of the Board of Regents and university presidents are such men. They are not philanthropists with their power. They do not dole it out as a matter of humanity. They will share it only with those who demand it and have the instruments to make them share it. Collective bargaining is such an instrument.
Collective bargaining is the only effective instrument by which faculties can achieve genuine shared authority, because it is that which faculties can achieve genuine shared authority, because it is that which makes the faculty- through its duly elected bargaining agent- equal under law with the academic power structure. It is at the bargaining table, and only there that we achieve that equality.
What then is collective bargaining?
It is a system of shared authority, based on a process of bilateral decision making by two agents (the administration and the faculty bargaining agent) which are equal under the law-utilizing
legally established procedures for reaching mutual agreement. The resulting written agreement or contract is a legal document enforceable under law.
But it is more than that. It establishes a Code of Governance for the University in which rules and policies affecting the faculty are clearly defined. It also establishes procedures to govern relations between the faculty and the university--
firocedures designed to protect the rights of acuity members against arbitrary and capricious action and to resolve conflicts which might arise between faculty members and the University. In sum, the Master Agreement is the charter of institutional democracy.
What are the advantages of collective bargaining?
1. The legal recognition of the local bargaining agent with a legal definition of its rights and functions. This provides the basis for the first really effective instrument of faculty power- and participation in the decision making process. The
actively sought but mainly through the medium of political influence at the state government level. The adversary role of the faculty against the administration has been thus minimized. In fact, some inroads have been gained in obtaining more faculty involvement in the administrative process. This of course has been done in the context of at least a tacit understanding that faculty with full teaching loads can only spend a minimum amount of time on administrative matters. Recently TAUWF has departed somewhat from its traditional approach. at least to the extent that they have become co-sponsors of collective bargaining enabling legislation. However, the main TAUWF endeavor still remains at the state level, recognizing that powerful, well-funded effort there will offer better returns than scattered local activity. This is particularly apparent when it is realized that faculty members who, having full-time teaching commitments and who
because .of limitations on time, money and nonpublic facilities, are not able to offer or if they fulfill their professional responsibilities should not be able to offer, effective local action on the part of this or that faculty grievance.
On the other hand what can we expect from a union?
They usually promise greatly increased local activity. It is fair to ask how this is to be accomplished. Activity requires man-hours (person-hours?). Man-hours means staff. Is this staff to be provided by faculty who are short-changing their teaching commitments or is it to be hired? Either way it's going to cost the faculty in general possibly more than anyone suspects and with the very real attendant risk that there will be no improvement over what we have always had. (People who have experience with boats know that exhibiting large amounts of horsepower and throwing a lot of water around don’t necessarily

recognized bargaining agent exists in the eyes of the law and cannot be blinked away.
2. The ability of the bargaining agent to reach the real center of decision making power in the University -for it is the Board of Regents which is required to approve the Master Agreement and which is bound by it. Nor can the Board unilaterally alter or revoke it.
3. Effective machinery for bilateral decision making through the bargaining process--which puts an end to the current arbitrary and unilateral system of decision making.
4. Effective machinery for the resolution of conflict through impasse procedures involving a third party.
5. A Master Agreement which spells out for all to know the policies and rules under which the University administration conducts its relations with the faculty.
6. The power of enforcement. The Master Agreement is legally binding.
What is required to make this system effecive?
1. Strong and determined local faculty organizations
2. which are backed by the resources and experience of a powerful state and national organization, and
3. effective political lobbying power.
Why are more and more faculties in Higher Education turning to collective bargaining?
Because they recognize that traditional mechanisms for faculty participation have failed and that collective bargaining offers the only effective means of achieving the faculties' proper role in the decision making process. This realization has been hastened by two factors which have radically altered the conditions of academic life during the past decade:
1. The growth of higher education institutions since 1945, accompanied by a managerial revolution -the emergence of a new class on non-teaching managers who have applied to the university the principles of industrial management and employee relations. Faculty are defined as
move the boat very fast.)
They will push for collective bargaining. This prospect to faculty who have had little bargaining input in determining their wages is an attractive one. However, there are costs. Collective bargaining does indeed raise wages but usually at the cost of lower employment. Also the administration will insist that other matters be opened for consideration such as job definitions and working hours. Further, it can be anticipated that single salary scales will become necessary. (This would be very desirable for some departments but could spell disaster for others when it is desired to recruit high quality staff). Finally, it is difficult to conceive that the faculty will be permitted to play any significant role in university administration while occupying an adversary position at the bargaining table.
They will push for an agency shop. This wolf will appear to us sheep in the more familiar guise of ‘‘Tne Fair Share Agreement." It means that if a
union is recognized as the bargaining agent for Oshkosh campus faculty, each faculty member will pay union dues whether he wants to or not.
They will probably use strikes. The collective bargaining enabling act is dressed up with such features as “compulsory fact-finding." However, unless compulsory arbitration is provided for (something that has never been tried in the history of trade-unionism) the ultimate weapon of collective bargaining remains the strike with all the consequences such as pickets and dosed classrooms. To those of us who worry each semester over the short amount of time available for covering the material that must be covered, the prospect of dass days being squandered in a teacher’s strike is anathema.
"What have we to lose?” it is asked. "Look at the high school teachers and what they have gained...and all because of organization and collective bargaining."
It is submitted that the high school situation is a

employees under this system and managers have arrogated to themselves the decision making authority.
2. The wave of student radicalism of the 1960’s (blamed on the faculty) accompanied by inflation and the soaring costs of education. These two things, in combination, have caused taxpayers and their representatives in the state legislatures to attack tne "fat" in higher education budgets. Student radicalism and inflation could not be legislated away, so politicians sought to relieve the taxpayers’ pain by using higher education as a scapegoat-a convenient and easy one since university professors are among the weakest groups in America in terms of their political power and degree of sophistication about its uses.
These attacks are having profound effects on academic freedom and the academic job market in America, and they will not abate in the coming decade but rather will grow in intensity.
Faculties everywhere are beginning to recognize that in order to combat these forces they
must find an instrument of self-defense that will enable them to reach beyond their departments and the college administration and come to grips with the real decision makers-the Board of Regents, the legislators and the governor.
Response by Dr. Mitchell
Collective bargaining has been grossly overestimated by those who would attempt to obtain for the professional what trade’unionism obtained for the non professional. This attempt is thus ill advised. Specifically: a) It assumes an equality of status among the bargainers that does not exist. Some faculty members represent specialties that are very scarce due to short supply, expanding demand, or both. Others are in specialties which are in such plentiful' supply as to approach redundancy. To impose on tnis situation a rigid framework of collectively bargained contracts is to hamstring

significantly different one. Ttie high school teachers do not have to worry about quality. (Some do worry but they don’t have to.) They don’t have to be anything more than glorified baby-sitters. They even have the police enforcing attendance in their classrooms. This situation is reflected in the fact that elementary and high school teachers have always been treated as dock-punching employees with restrictions and regulations that no college faculty member has ever had to endure. (TTiese measures are really nothing more than a pathetic attempt to reintroduce some incentive on the part of these demoralized teachers to put out some kind of quality instruction.)
In the college classroom the incentive is built in. It is admittedly slow but it is nevertheless sure. If a college instructor doesn’t concern himself with the quality of his product, students quickly learn of it and stay away in droves. Classes dry up; departments disappear; and even colleges dose
their doors. In short, a university faculty member has to be market oriented. His product has to sell.
Of course, people are now trying to use the tenure concept, which had as its origin the laudable aim of protecting academic freedom, to force the state to employ faculty members whose jobs have become redundant. This effort will probably not succeed even though Wisconsin has one of the strongest tenure laws in the country.. The courts have had little problem in recognizing featherbedding where it has occurred, and will probably not permit tenure laws to protect such practices.
And what do the unions offer instead? Tenure and seniority enforced at all costs will be the rule. Wages will be guaranteed by contract. Wages will be paid whether they have enrollees or not. From where will come the incentive to innovate, to put out extra effort to reach the students? Why need an instructor take the trouble to read blue-books

For three years on this campus, students have been greatly serviced by the existence of a legal aids service. We have been most fortunate to have Wallace "Buzz" Barlow as our lawyer, to counsel students on matters of legal problems which many students have encountered nere in Oshkosh.
As Steve Ballard, the director of I egal Services can tell you, it has not been easy to run this program. There have been many obstacles to overcome, one of the main ones being in the financial area. As it is now, the Legal Services Program cannot be funded by Student Activity Fees. In September of 1972, the Oshkosh Student Association presented a proposal to the Board of Regents requesting that the Legal Services Program be allowed to request monies from the Allocation Committee. The motion to refuse funding was defeated in a controversial 3-3 tie when it appeared before the Business and Finance Committee of the Board. This allowed the issue to be presented before the entire Board where it was tabled.
The proposal has now been tabled for one full year. The status of our Legal Services Program remains in great doubt. Buzz Barlow has served more than 2000 students. He has performed legal counseling, advising, litigation, and other legal work on a purely gratis basis. We cannot allow this situation to remain in its present state.
In previous years, the Oshkosh Student Association had been receiving endorsement and administrative fees from Glow Life Insurance Company to fund our legal services program. Funding from Globe has now ceased and other means of support must be secured. This past summer, the Legal Services Program initiated a $2.00 per visit charge to see Mr. Barlow. Also during this past summer, letters were sent to every faculty member asking for donations to Legal Services. A grand total of $36.00 was netted from the faculty. The Legal Services Program has also applied for monetary grants from the Exxon Educational Fund, the Johson Foundation, the Miles Kimball Foundation, and the Playboy
Foundation. All are pending at this time.
Now. there is a pending crisis in the future of legal services programs, not only on this campus, but on all other schools in the UW system. The month of November has been declared as Legal Services month by the United Council of University of Wisconsin Student Governments. A massive campaign will be waged on all campuses to get student and faculty support of legal service programs for students. Hopefully with unified support from all UW schools, the Regents and administrators in Madison will be shown that students want and need legal service programs. The regents will hopefully have the opportunity to respond to the students in December at the December Regents meeting. At that time, providing that the legal services question can appear on the agenda, the Regents will be presented with a new proposal on legal services. We are hoping that in December we will get a definitive statement of either yes or no on the status of legal service programs.
I do believe that if the 2000 students who have used the services of Buzz Barlow were asked if they ever thought they would need a lawyer while in college, many would probably say no. It is reassuring to know that if vou ever need a lawyer, you know where to come. I at reassurance is now in jeopardy. OSA needs to know that students want and feel a definite need for the legal services program to continue. Do voice your opinion about legal services to those who control the game. Support legal services during the month of November.
What the hell! I’m an adult now. The governor emancipated me last year, didn’t he? Then why am I treated like a minor while I’m at this University?
United Students in Residence Halls (U.S.R.H.) is working to change the senseless rules that are present at the University of Wisconsin—Oshkosh. Beer, but not hard alcohol is allowed in Residence Halls. Why? The problem is that a few Board of Regents in their ivory tower in Madison are misinformed. Undoubtedly, they haven’t heard that eighteen year olds can now consume hard alcohol. USRH in cooperation with United Residence Hall Association (URHA) is currently working to change the policy and allow alcohol. This is a report on what they are doing.
The Executive Board of the United Residence Hall Association (URHA), the state organization which promotes, co ordinates, and facilitates all inter-residence hall governments communications ■and activities, will request an appearance before the Education Committee of the Board of Regents in February of 1974. The purpose of this appearance will be to present to the Board a resolution that would allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages over 5 per cent by weight in Residence Halls throughout the University of Wisconsin System.
URHA will recommend that the University of Wisconsin Resolution 252-72 passed on July 14, •1972 be amended to allow alcohol in its entirety by deleting the works in brackets: That the Chancellors shall have the authority to establish the rules and regulations on the respective campuses concerning tne sale and consumption of fermented malt beverages (with an alcoholic content of no more than 5 per cent by weight), subject to statutory regulation.
Any presentation before the Board of Regents must contain numbers and facts, not long winded rationale. URHA is now faced with the task of formulating a “plan of attack" using solely numbers and facts, to be used to persuade the Board of Regents.
At the URHA state convention at the
University of Wisconsin—Oshkosh in September of 1973, the Committee on Alcohol, under the uidance of Terry Jepson, president of URHA, eveloped a set of objectives. The end result of these objectives will be numbers and facts that can be used to combat the objections that the Regency members will raise to the proposal.
The Committee on Alcohol requested that each Residence Hall Commission throughout the state meet the following objectives:
A. That a state wide standardized survey be used to poll Head Residents and Resident Assistants. The purpose of this survey is to determine how the Beer Proposal implemented in the Spring of 1973 has succeeded in the Residence Halls. The survey will also request general feedback relating to an establishment of a program permitting all alcoholic beverages in the halls in the future.
B. That each campus distribute a statewide standardized survey to all students living in Residence Halls, requesting the same information, as that from the Housing Staff.
C. Have a brain session going over all facets of the Alcohol Proposal.
D. Present individual campuses results at the next URHA state convention.
The information received from these objectives will not competely support the proposal. To gather more information, the Committee on Alcohol, at the next URHA state convention, will accomplish the following tasks:
A. Draft letters to parents.
B. Draft letters to high school guidance counselors.
The purpose of this letter writing campaign will be to obtain comments and suggestions from persons other than students and administrators. The information received from these letters can be adapted and used as support for the Alcohol Proposal.
After all this has been done, the work of each Residence Hall Council, and the Committee on Alcohol of URHA will not be completed. The primary responsibility of each campus is to con-

Forget all the speculation about the new spirit of practicality and the waning spirit of campus revolution; disregard the polls claiming to pinpoint the mood of college students everywhere; forget about all of that. The Last Quiver has taken a student mood poll to end all student mood polls.
A random sample of 55 UW-0 students was asked how they would describe their reaction to the fall semester’s programing and registration procedures. Of the 55 students interviewed. 46 per cent said they were satisfied. 18 per cent said they were very satisfied. 29 per cent were unsatisfied and 7 per cent were very unsatisfied.
Can you imagine that? Sixty-four per cent of the students interviewed claimed satisfaction with a procedure formerly despised as time-consuming, troublesome and traumatic.
What has happened to previous attitudes toward registration? The poll was taken in October, and time may have dimmed the students’ memory. Or the results may have been mistakenly read up-side-down. Or can it be possible that accolades are due the administration for taking constructive steps to relieve some of the pressures normally associated with registration?
But on December 14, when you pass through the programing
lines at Kolf, glance at the instructor behind the table handing out class cards. If he is from one of the University’s larger departments, no doubt he will look harried, hurried and haggled. On the other hand, if he is an instructor from a small department, he will look restless and bored, or will be out for his tenth cup of coffee. The first instructor can look forward to being relieved after four hours. The second instructor will spend the entire day dealing out class cards, and he can look forward to pulling another shift during the next registration period.
Still, most faculty members interviewed agreed with the students polled; pre-registration, which began in the spring of 1972, has resulted in improved
Dale Molander, business administration’s associate dean, said the new system was. ‘‘a lot better.” Everett Matz, business administration’s advisor, called the old system, "a headache.”
Speech department instructor Gloria Link said registration procedures had improved greatly the past two or three years, and that the centralization of cardholders at Kolf had made it unnecessary for students to run, “hither, thither and yon” picking up class cards.
One department head, who preferred to remain anonymous, disagreed with Link. He wondered why students at UW-0 had to play the traditional registration role of gathering together, “like in a market place at Kolf. He said his department had handed out fewer class cards than had been returned during the August registration. He thought that with declining enrollment, the August registration period could be cut from two days to one day. Matz and Molander agreed, but both pointed out that shortening registration might cause
everett matzproblems in other areas, namely the financial aids and cashier offices.
The registration office has been thinking along the same lines. "Our lone-range objective," said August Helgerson, director of registration, "is to have students program in May. Those students who choose not to change their program after they have registered in May would not have to return for fall registration. The only students who would be required to go through fall registration would be freshmen, transfer students, students who register late, and those who want to change classes," Helgerson said. A method of obtaining student addresses for billing fees and campus directories must be found before the change is made.
That would cut in half registration time for most students, but unless August and January registration periods are reduced to one day, faculty members would still be required to man the registration tables for' three days.
But telescoping programing into one day has upset at least one department cardholder. Jeffrey Allen of the English department feels one-day programing in May and December puts too much strain on his department. "Of the registration systems I’ve known, this is the worst." Allen said. “I have a hunch students are put through a lot of mickey mouse before they get in and out of registration. Some people are deliberately making registration harder and have set up a more complex system than necessary just to insure their jobs," he charged.
"Its a chaotic mess," Allen said. "The English department
fjave out 3700 cards in one day ast May, and we got a little irritable."
Allen has a reasonable excuse. His department handed out an average of eight cards a minute.
Since 1973 is being viewed by students as "be kino to faculty" year, it seems to be the proper time to look at both sides of the registration table, (also underneath it), to search for worthwhile ways to ease faculty, administration, and student registration pressures.
Why recommend changes to a
system that appears to have the support of the University community? Because the system is costly to students and faculty alike.
That’s mighty expensive help sitting behind those registration tables handing out cards. The 1973 fall class schedule listed 61 advisers, instructors, coordinators and department heads who spent three aays handing out cards for the fall semester, and who will spend another three days handing out cards for the spring semester.
More than half of them will also man the table for the summer session. The result is about 3,200 faculty man hours a year spent at
an administrative job which many feel that clerks or work-study students could handle just as well. If you want to put a price-tag on it, multiply the 3,200 hours by a debatable, but probably conservative, estimate of $6 an hour. The total cost is $19,200 a year. At today’s going rate for instructors, that would figure out to a year’s salary for one full-time instructor, and one part time instructor.
The question is this, would the University save some of the $19,200 a year by replacing faculty behind the tables at Kolf with clerks or work-study students at cheaper hourly rates?
"No." said Franklin Utech, art department chairman. "Advisers have to be here on campus during registration anyway. No additional money is spent.”
The question then becomes, if advisers are required to be on campus, could they be doing something that would benefit students more than merely handing out class cards at Kolf? Could they be giving students
$19,200 worth of extra preparation for classes, additional research, or more relaxed advisement in their offices?
"Utilizing work-study students during registration would release faculty to function more effectively in their offices,” Link believes. “It’s a big waste of time and money to have faculty sitting at registration tables. Student help should be used. Students do not become objectively involved, and registering students will accept a ‘no’ answer from their own peer group," she said.
But Matz thought that it takes an adviser to sav, “no." "Because we are not fully computerized,
decisions must be made so everyone gets a fair shake, and that is the reason we can't have students handing out cards. Students don’t realize other students have needs greater than their own," he said.
Herbert Gaede, a former chairman of the geography department, disagreed with Matz. "It’s not a decision-making process because decisions to pass out a certain number of cards per class can be made in advance.
33Almost 95 percent of registration is essentially a mechanical process. Students can pass out cards just as effectively as faculty." he said. But Gaede also said that the
students to man tables during August registration.
"In the English department we trv to use student help." said Allen. "In fact, we prefer it. Students do a better job, are more efficient, more reliable, and more polite. But we have trouble finding students who want to work during programing just prior to final exams." ne explained.
Advisers should be on hand to answer any question students might have, and also to aid transfer students and freshmen, explained Allen Chew, history department chairman.
"There is a little more to registration than handing out class cards," Registration Director Helgerson pointed out. “Sections are dosed and added and other decisions are being mads. Someone must make
decisions about staffing and availability of rooms. But any department has the option to hire work-study students. Many do. Our function is to set up facilities to register students. How departments man those stations is up to them."
Tne speech department and the art department have set up pre-registration counselling programs for the majors and minors in each department. The program is designed to funnel counselling into advisers offices rather than to the registration tables. Joseph Laine. speech department chairman, said students in his department had supported the plan.
If some departments are holding pre-registration counselline. why not let advisers hand out class cards to majors and minors during program coun selling? Assuming most students program half of their courses within their majors or minors, and other half in electives, such a program would cut in half the amount of traffic between registration tables at Kolf.
Helgerson said that handing out cards to majors and minors prior to registration had been tried in the past, but students found ways to obtain cards outside their majors and minors, and sections would begin to fill up before registration actually an.
eniors. who had less flexibility in scheduling classes, often found themselves in scheduling binds for elective courses Because sections had been filled by majors, minors and blackmarket class card buyers. Helgerson said he realizes some departments are still holding
cards for majors and minors, but he understands the cards are put back into the hopper if the student does not show up at his regularly scheduled registration time. Now cards are not made available to department heads until a day or two before registration. according to Helgerson.
One way to eliminate the crush for popular prime-time courses, those classes scheduled between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.. would be to schedule some of the sections in a multi-section course for juniors and seniors only. Seniors nor mally are given first crack at those sections anyway, and it might reduce some of the anguish underclassmen go through wondering whether they will Be lucky enough to squeeze into a section they are reasonably sure will be filled.
Many student schedules hinge on such a possibility, however, and Allen pointed out that, "any form of trying to channel students into a course is unsuccessful. and understandably so.” On the other hand, he saia. there are many one-section courses, and student really has no choice of times in those courses either.
Some schools have turned to complete computerization to free faculty members, administrators and students from the drudgery of registration. One school with a complete computer registration system is Harper Community College at Palatine, Illinois.
A Harper student selects class times and instructors from a master list, gets his schedule worksheet approved bv an adviser. then hands the form to a computer terminal operator.
Tne operator enters the schedule, using the student's social security number to verify his identity. The computer in stantly confirms the schedule. If the student has selected a section which is filled, the computer flashes alternate choices on a screen in front of operator and student. Total time elapsed from when the student hands his worksheet to the operator to the time his schedule is confirmed is two minutes on the average.
Students enrolling for less than six credits can telephone from their home or place of work, and be given the same type of service as those who register in person.
34There is a hitch, however. Because counselling is a part of the actual registration at Harper, students spend an hour on campus, and the registration period for its 6,000 students is extended to six weeks. That might be acceptable for a community college with a local enrollment, but it would be unacceptable for UW-0 which draws students from throughout the state and several hundred non resident students.
Could some components of the Harper system be adapted to steamline registration at UW-O? "It’s an interesting system, and I'm familiar with others like it," said Donald Haueter, director of UW-0 data processing. "Yes, a program like Harper’s wold be possible here with programming and policy changes by the administration." Haueter said similar programs had been discussed with the Registration Office, but Registration Director
Helgerson had decided complete computerization was not feasible.
Helgerson explained that the program had been turned down primarily due to the size of UW-0 enrollment. He cited the registration period of several weeks as opposed to the current three days was another factor. Key punch opeators would have to be hired, Helgerson said, and he thought students would not accept part-time operators as qualified to handle their schedules.
A second administrator, Dale Molander, had earlier questioned whether students would accept complete computerization. "I wonder how students would react to a ’do not fold, spindle or mutilate’ mechanized system," he said.
Our randon 55 students were asked whether they would object if computer key punch operators performed the duties now being handled by faculty members
during programing and registration procedures, if it would result in a faster process. Of the 55 students polled. 20 percent said they would object, II percent said they would object strenuously. 53 percent said they would not object, and 16 percent said they h$d no opinion. In-cidently, the sample included 5 freshmen, 16 sophomores, 13 juniors, and 21 seniors.
Those results were almost as surprising as the results obtained from our first question. Either academia’s distrust of computers is waning; or saving time is an acceptable trade-off for depersonalization in the students’ view.
Not many favorable opinios of computers were found among the instructors interviewed who nave had registration experiences with computers at other schools. Utech said some Big Ten schools using computers offered no

Most UW-0 students may have been upset to find out that they are neither the ultimate he-man or the most feminine of women, but rather that they lay somewhere in between on the sexual scale, perhaps dangerously close to gay liberationist Jack Baker.
Baker told his audience this and other facts about homosexuality when he spoke at the Union lounge on October third.
Baker received national notoriety when he married his former college roomate, James Michael McConnell, in Minneapolis in May of 1970.
Originally the Minneapolis district attorney would not issue a marriage license to Baker and McConnell, which forced McConnell to adopt his roomate. Baker changed nis name to Pat Lyn McConnell and, with a marriage license issued in Mankato, Minn., they were married by a Methodist minister in a private ceremony.
Judging from Baker's experiences, being gay has both advantages and disadvantages. He had professed his
homosexuality before he ran for student body president of the University of Minnesota. He was elected.
His campaign poster featured a picture of Baker sitting and clutching his knees, sporting a pair of black high-heeled pumps. The legend read, “Put yourself in Jack Baker's shoes."
Baker and his family, however, are on a strained relationship because of his lifestyle. Baker described it as a sort of persona non grata. He first told them of his involvement in the gay liberation movement on a national level on Thanksgiving Day. in his parents home in Chicago. Of his eight brothers and sisters, only one sister is on an understanding basis with him.
The term "gay." when used in connection with homosexuality, is derived from the French word, "gaie," originally applied to prostitutes. The word, along with the movement, began surfacing in America in the 1940’s and 1950's.
When Baker and McConnell’s original application for a marriage license was refused, the case reached the Supreme Court.
where it was thrown out for "lack of substantial federal question."
Because of this and other factors, Baker believes that before a decade is over, same sex marriages will be legalized. It is only a matter of time before he and his mate will be eligible for the same benefits as a married couple consisting of one male and one female.
Last year Baker and McConnell filed a ioint tax return, but it was refused by the internal revenue service. Baker, a former law student who is preparing for his bar exam, has taken this to court also.
Before Baker’s marriage, he had the occasion several times of seeing another man who particularly appealing to him and outlined his pickup technique to the audience.
"When I see a man I like, I tell him he's good looking and I’d iust as soon go to bed with him,'r he said. "Most men don’t realize that that’s a compliment and they get all uptight about it." Mfi
36Tears, sore stomachs, and thunderous laughter were in order when Jim Bouton, controversial author of Ball Four and former major league pitcher, spoke to a capacity crowd at Reeve Union lounge.
In discussing his book, Bouton kept the audience laughing by telling of incidents with Howard Cosell, Joe Schultz, former manager of the Seattle Pilots, and Doug Rader, third-baseman for the Houston Astros, and others.
He said he wrote the book because he felt that the true image of baseball players and professional athletes was much different than what sport writers were trying to sell.
“I found out tnat professional sports was nothing like any of the articles I had read," said Bouton. “I said to myself, ‘Gee, why didn’t somebody ever write a book and talk about it, and what it’s really like? How crazy it is, how much fun it is, how silly it is, how mean it is, how happy it is?' "
The repercussions from the book resulted in Bouton being called a “social leper” and "the horniest bleep in the major leagues” by Dick Young of the New York Daily News, who wrote six consecutive articles about Ball Four.
"Everybody thought that ball players were eunuchs or something," said Bouton. "Ball players are just as human as anybody else, probably more human. We’re on the road a lot, reasonably in-
telligent and many of us are very good looking,” Bouton said of the stereotyping of players.
Bouton commented on tne large number of former athletes becoming sportscasters by saying that a controversial player is never picked. They always get the good-looking quiet type that doesn’t really belong there. He later said former athletes can add certain points of view normal people would not be aware of.
Bouton said Cosell always asks the tough questions. He said he would like to see Cosell asking questions at the Watergate hearings.
Imitating Cosell, Bouton said, "Don’t spar with me Buchanon. You know you’re lying. Look into those cameras and tell those people you’re lying."
Doug Rader is one of Bouton’s favorite characters. He told one story where a TV crew was making a documentary in the Houston locker room and Rader as supposed to be in the background cleaning his spikes. When the TV camera came by Rader, he picked up a waste basket full of garbage and dumped it on his head.
Bouton was recently fired t y WABC—TV in New York and hired by WCBS—TV also in New York. He said that the only reason he felt he was fired was he was too controversial, tea

Jean Westwood, former chairperson for the Democratic National Committee, told a UW— Oshkosh gathering on November 1 that Vietnam and the Civil Rights decade were the backround causes of Watergate.
She claimed that both phenomena created an atmosphere of division, and that the result was an assertion of presidential powers through people who were not even in the President's Cabinet. According to Westwood, this situation began with Franklin Roosevelt, but was accelerated with the Civil Rights struggle and Vietnam, especially under Johnson ana Nixon.
Westwood put faith in the House Judiciary Committee for the solution to the executive dilemma involving Nixon. She said that she would support impeachment if the Committee found justification for the action. Westwood said that guilt must be established, not as a political indictment, but as an assemblageof evidence in Congress.
Westwood has held the highest position in jitics ever achieved by a woman. She gave a ief outline of women in politics, saying that
women did not figure in political dealings until the pre Civil Wa • era. It was then that several women’s anti-slavery groups were organized.
In the mid RiOO's it was considered impudent for women to speak in public, explained Westwood. But the move for sulferage became stronger, and by the turn of the century the rights of women under the Constitution were oegun to be recognized.
Until now, 86 women have been elected to positions in national government. Westwood said that women in politics are not so concerned about their numbers, as they are about the shape this country is in and where it is going.
Westwood has spent most of her time campaigning for progressive democratic candidates, including Robert Kennedy. Hubert Humphrey, and George McGovern. She has been a supporter of peace, open government, and Civil Rights.

How to Shift th Burdhen_
Controversial Plan Urges Higher Tuition,
Direct Student Aid

"The end of public higher education in this
country___It would shatter the hopes of workers.
.. .Higher education would be limited to the very poor and the very rich. . . .The middle-income group is going to get hit."
This chorus of fear and outrage sprang up last week when a business-oriented research group proposed giving more financial assistance to poor students and raising college tuition for those better able to pay. The result could be a tuition, increase averaging more than $500 per year for most students at public colleges and universities. The proposal was immediately attacked by public-college officials, student groups, and AFL—CIO. and others with a stake in cheap higher education for the middle class.
"It is time to blow the whistle on the growing tendency for the rich to make grandiose plans to aid the poor with the money of the middle class." said Democratic Rep. James O'Hara of Michigan, referring to the corporate executives who dominate the membership of the Council for Economic Development, which issued the controversial report.
But the plan offered by the council is supported by some private-college educators, and it is similar to proposals put forward earlier by the academically respected Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. The plan’s purpose is to make a
college education available to those who cannot afford it; the council noted that children from families making less than $3,000 per year are barely one-fifth as likely to attend college as young le from $ 15,000-per-year homes, e proposals are also seen as a way of bailing private colleges out of their current financial crisis by taking away some of the price advantage enjoyed by competing state schools. Proponents also hope that giving grants to students, instead of subsidies to schools, will make educators compete for the tuition money and therefore pay more attention to students and teaching.
The council proposed that Federal aid to public colleges, and even some state aid, be given directly to needy students instead of going to the schools to hold down the cost of tuition. The schools would have to make up for this loss by raising tuition to half the cost of instruction (one-third in the Carnegie plan).
The combination of higher tuition and more liberal student aid would permit more youngsters to go to college, the council argued, without increasing the burden on taxpayers, who already ay more than three-fourths of the cost of public igher education. It calculated that few upper-income students would quit because of tuition increases averaging $540 per year, particularly since only the wealthier half of the student body would be billed for this entire increase. But many more poor students would be able to attend because of grants of $1,350 per year to students from homes with incomes below $4,000 per year.

A.R. Gurney’s SCENES FROM AMERICAN LIFE opened the UW-0 73-74 theatre season in a rather unorthodox manner. It was a series of 36 vignettes, rather than a standard three act play.
The cast didn't come back for a curtain call at the end of the production, leaving the audience with the feeling that what they saw was more than entertainment.
The theme of the play was the subsequent destruction of not only American values, but of the country itself by the human characteristics of hatred, prejudice, and hypocrisy. Spanning a fifty year period from 1934 to 1934, tne production studies man and his world, anticipating its future if present trends continue.
The humor in the play was in a satirical vein and the stage rarely emmitted a feeling of warmth. With its stark, white flag and white sidepieces covered with the symbols that rule man’s life, such an emission could" hardlv be expected.
With a play like SCENES it is difficult to receive complete audience participation and understanding. This in turn causes problems for the people on stage who, in noticing the lack of appropriate responses, may attribute it to their own performances. However there were particular moments when the cast shone.
Kelly Gilmore's Viennese dancing instructor; Betty Butz's mother; Jerry Mettner’s solicitous minister and Bob Bartel's collection of obnoxious little boys were all excellent.
This is not to say the rest of the cast wasn’t good. However these roles, of both a major and minor nature, characterized best what the play was trying to say. The foibles of the human beings, both funny and tragic, all led to the ultimate destruction of their country. Yet even when the characters moved away, presumably to Canada, the pettiness and bickering began all over again and the audience realized that sooner or later man will drive himself away once more.
The character of 'Snoozer,' who is born, matures and is killed without ever being seen by the audience best epitomizes the other characters in the play. We do see his namesake, but he is just like his parents and grandparents were, offering no solution with time. n

Tne UW—0 Theatre Department production of Arthur Schnitzler’s LA RONDE proved highly entertaining when produced in this form.
LA RONDE. or “The Circle,” was a series of ten dialogues regarding the subject of sex. Each of the ten scenes nolds a character over from the scene previous, giving the story a circular pattern. The first and last scene contain a character known simply as “The Whore," whose gentlemen progress from a mere soldier to a full-fledged count by the end.
Each of the characters represent a certain social strata from society. The play studies how they react to the different situations and characters they are confronted with. Whether it be the common whore, the idealistic young gentleman, the self-important poet or the pompous old count, they all exhibit qualities that only come out during times of seduction.
Way back in high school readers theatre consisted of young thespian dressed in somber clothes sitting on a high stool looking soleful. LA RONDE displayed a great variety of stage technique that
not only enlivened the d alogue but created the illusion that it was not reiders theatre. The small but plush set was occupied by fully dressed performers whose body novement was limited to what they could do from a seated position. The most unique feature appeared during the seduction scenes. A mirrored ball, much fixe the ones seen hanging over the dance floors in those old movies, was suspended from the theatre ceiling. When a seduction was about to take place, the ball would turn with a spotlight shining on it. The hundreds of reflections swirling on the walls and through the beams on the ceiling looked almost like stars spinning in a whirlpool. Accompanying this was a bright little tune tnat could have served equally well in either a bedroom or on a merry-go-round.
LA RONDE presented a picture of sexual mores at the turn of the last century, showing as more sensuous than serious, with compassion more for the lover's mistakes than the feeling he wants to convey. The whore who opens and closes the play is more of what is the norm than the exception. Using sex for sensuous delight but calling it love is a prostitution of the word. At least she’s honest about her business.

because of butterflies
on a lonely summers day we sat munching on butterflies in the yard.
you can see so many things
through the stained-glass double domes
of butterfly wings;
perhaps even more than through
crystal window panes.
i have seen the bleak deserts of a mad-man's mind;
i have seen the world through a blind man's glass eye;
i have seen silver rays of sunlight reflect off a crippled man's toenail;
i have seen the colors of music from a sick-man's ear;
i have seen the insane words cry from a poet's pen;
but how can anyone go on dreaming with butterflies in their stomach?
for new lingua
hard to release the past but
journeying off the cliff
swimming in the china sea
and going over a reef
saying it's lonely out there
lonely on the beach
searching for new
nude on the beach adam.
Imagine how long
since a fat moon grinned a santa klaus smile or
with a slug-worm cloud
made blue witchfinger shadows stretch
across a field? older now
see only gray
dust and impact craters in a lifeless black.
leaves clutch the nightwind scream loud against the window bring me back to the dark room with spoiled sunflower sheets
your voice echos down my spine carries visions
in wagging heads
dirty hands touch our bellies
smooth our sheets
claw our eyes

I want a drink
I don't want any water then.
If the water's over by the gate, then that must be the Watergate, and everyone says there's bugs over there.
Cause I heard that that water has bugs in it and I don't want to drink any bugs.
What do you mean, bugs?The Druids regarded the mistletoe as a sacred plant. They hung it over their doorways, believing that only happiness could enter a house so protected. The Druidic name for mistletoe meant "heal all" and was also considered to aid in conception. Since the Druids were sun worshippers, the return of the sun in the north was their equivalent to our Christmas. The mistletoe was a solar symbol to them and they observed the custom of greeting people under the mistletoe as a sign of good will and friendship.
An unmarried woman who is not kissed under the mistletoe while she stands under it will not marry for another year.
Any woman who refuses to be kissed under the mistletoe will die an old maid.
At one time it was believed that the first single man who walked under the mistletoe would marry the daughter of the house.
The abbreviation Xmas for Christmas originated from the Greek letter chi, written X. X represents the cross, and is associated with the death of Christ on the cross.
If a girl is kissed seven times under the mistletoe in one day, she will marry within the year.
If a sachet of mistletoe berries are worn around the neck it will ward against sterility and be an antidote against poisons.
Christmas was originally a solar holiday, celebrated when the Winter Solstice marked the sun’s course to the north. Ancient Scandinavians celebrated the sun’s return by kindling log fires, symbolizing the sun’s heat, light and life-giving virtues. In the feast of Jul a fire was kindled in honor of Thor. Thus, we get the words “Yule," "Yuletide,” and "Yule Log" from the festival Jul.
In olden times the Yule I g was burned in the hearth, and whenever possible took a year to burn itself out. Each year tne ashes were strewn over the fields in the belief that crops would be benefitted.
What you do on New Year’s Day. you will do all year long.
Noise at the stroke of twelve on New Year’s Eve drives out the evils of the past year and clears the air to give the New Year a prosperous start.
A dark man bearing a gift of food should cross the threshold after the New Year has started to bring prosperity to the home for the coming year. If a blonde- no go!
Evergreen twigs are used for trimmings because of the superstition that forest elves and fairies came into the house with the evergreen and freed the inhabitants from harm.
The decorating of trees comes from a German Custom. Trees were decorated outdoors with voluntary offerings to the god of fire.

Old and Graj?

What dignity, if any at all, awaits you when you are old and gray? Perhaps the answer can be captured via photograph. Study the next few pages.
Oshkosh, to be sure, has it’s share of old men. They are to be “discovered” just about anywhere. Walking down Main Street. In a park. A shopping center. Or iust sitting. . .waiting for a friendly welcome and some warm conversation.
What do these faces tell us? And their clothes? Have the years been hard? They’ve seen the years go by: wars,
depression, love found and love lost, good times and bad times.
Surely they’ve had the experience of seeing their friends die. It suddenly was a world that took on a new dimension. Perhaps dependence.
For us, it seems like that day will never come. Perhaps this is the very same thought these old men delayed when they were young.
Currently, two jazz ensembles are rehearsing at UW—0. Membership in each ensemble is open to all university students through audition with Allen K. Butcher, director of jazz ensembles. Auditions take place in N-124, Arts and Communications Center, before pre-registration for the following semester.
In each jazz band freshmen through seniors are participating, their jazz experience and general playing ability determining in which ensemble they are regestered. Each group meets two class hours per week for one credit.
The main purpose of having jazz ensembles at our university is to add jazz to the music experience that already includes traditional and contemporary concert music. The groups play music with styles varying from swing to modern jazz to jazz-rock. The variety expands the performers' knowledge of styles and affords UW-0 concert-goers a broader experience of music.
Performances are scheduled when possible, with regard to students' other classwork. Second semester will bring exciting performances; including a concert with Clark Terry in the Union Special Events Committee jazz series, a coordinated program with the UW—0 dance club (Terpsichore), an exchange concert with another university, as well as a regular concert and more concerts in the Union.

choice in class times and that the computers, “simply spit out a schedule."
Matz said, “We could go to full computerization now, but students would be at the mercy of the computer, often with no recourse to change schedules. That would result in a lot of bellyaching from students who would lose their decision-making process. Their options would be taken away."
Our model, the Harper system, does offer students a choice, and students are able to arrange schedules around lunch and work periods with freedom equal to the system presently used at UW-0.
According to Haueter, there are basically three types of registration programs. He described a 100 percent student-oriented program in which the administration issues a list of courses available, but issues no time schedule. The student completes his schedule, picking the classes and the times he wants. The administration gathers all of the student schedules, and then makes arrangements for instructors and classrooms according to the students’ preferences. The school using this program discovered that students wanted more night classes than had previously been offered. More instructors were assigned to night classes.
At the other end of the scale is the system described by Utech and Matz. The school feeds a firm class schedule into its computer; the student picks his courses, but the computer picks the times and automatically assigns students to fit the schedule.
"Middle-of-the-road ’might be the best description of the current UW-0 registration procedures. Students are somtimes required to change their schedules as sections fill up; sometimes department heads are able to add more sections to accommodate students.
"At Harper, the registrar has total control of registration,” Haueter explained. “He has the authority to open, close or create sections. 'Inat’s the biggest hang up here."
Currently. UW-0 department heads have control of sections.
and each department chairman would have to be consulted before changes to sections in his department could be made.
"To my knowledge, no college in Wisconsin uses complete computer registration," Haueter said. "It just hasn’t caught on. There’s a lot of emphasis at this school for faculty, departmental, and student freedom. Some computer systems infringe on these areas ’.
Although Haueter gave the impression that he is anxious to give his computers a chance to show they can speed up registration, he said he is “a little suspicious" of claims of two-minute registering. There is little doubt that operators can key in the necessary information in less than two minutes, and anyone who is familiar with a typewriter will have little trouble with the type of terminal being used, but according to Haueter, proponents of the program are always reluctant to say how long the process actually takes when sections begin to fill up toward the end of registration.
To get some idea of what computers can do, assume that it takes an average of five minutes for each student to obtain a confirmed schedule rather than the two minutes claimed. A three-day
registration period for 10,000 UW-0 students would require 38 terminals, 20 more than UW-0 has on campus now. Cable for 38 terminals would have to be laid from Dempsey Hall to Kolf at an estimated cost of $19,000. Rent for each terminal is $160 a month and $25 shipping charge is tacked oh each shipment to campus and $25 shipping for each shipment from campus. Part-time operators would have to be hired.
Total costs would be prohibitive, and unless other aspects of registration would be speeded up, there would be no guarantee that student registration time would be reduced, although faculty would be freed from cardholding duties.
There is another way. Why require returning students to show up for registration at all? Why not have students turn in one preferred program schedule and one alternate schedule at a prescribed time. (sophomores and freshmen might be required to turn in two alternates).
Schedules could be processed by terminal operators in the usual order of class rank during the summer and Christmas vacations using the Harper online system, but not requiring the student to come to the campus to verify his program. If schedule conflicts arose, or if sections filled up, the student would be notified by mail and be given the option of coming to the campus in person, or telephoning to make cnanges in his schedule. Otherwise, students would receive a confirmation copy of their schedules by mail. Creating some “junior and senior only" sections could be a useful tool to keep some sections from filling rapidly if: students would accept the concept.
What would this system cost the University? Again assuming one operator can program one student every five minutes, and given the 18 working days between the first and second semester, it would take eight terminals working eight hours a day for 14 days (four days alloted for mail lag and program changes) to program 10,000 students. There are seven terminals scattered throughout the campus assigned solely to registration duties. But it is unlikely, according to Haueter, that any of the offices using those seven terminals, or any of the other offices using the remain 11 terminals would be willing to give them up for a month.
Costs for the nine terminals required for each semester would run like this: $1,280 rent for 8 terminals, 1 month each 80 terminal connectors for 8 terminals
$400 shipping charges for 8 terminals in and out $3,450 labor for 8 operators, $3 per hour
$5,210 per semester
With only eight terminals involved, cable could be strung to a vacant Dempsey Hall classroom or conference room equipped with a telephone. Costs for a permanent cable could be kept under $500 if the room is located less than 100 feet from the data processing center.
Fall semester costs would also be about $5,200, and the summer session about one-third of the regular semester costs. Price tag
69for each year, after the initial cable is laid, would add up to about $12,000 for computer equipment and operators.
That figure would compare favorably with the yearly cost of $19,200 for faculty cardholders, if the premise is accepted that faculty could be better utilized in areas other than handing out class cards at Kolf.
Mailing costs would increase, however. All other business, VA applications, housing, financial aids and tuition fee billings would have to be handled by mail,' unless it could be delayed until the students return to campus. Helgerson used ten cents per mailing as a cost figure, which would mean that each mailing would cost the University $1,000, for 10,000 students.
The biggest problem, as with trying to eliminate the August regestration period, is the matter of obtaining current student billing addresses. Few students know in May what their school address will be the following August. One solution might be to switch ID card processing from May to August and then have students complete address cards during ID processing.
Haueter and Helgerson also worry about inevitable computer processing errors. Eliminating registration and the student check of class cards would make catching errors more difficult. More attention would have to be paid to instructor class lists.
Meanwhile, UW—O students can look forward to a slightly easier registration process for
the spring semester. For the undergraduates, the religion and registrar cards have been combined into one card. Continuing education and graduate school students will be required to complete only one punch card, filling in social security number and name. Class cards will be attached by computer. The smaller enrollment of the two schools makes the process possible, according to Haueter.
One final suggestion. Stick a copy of “The Last Quiver” in your jeans before you leave for registration at Kolf on December 14. It's excellent in-line reading. Even has pictures.

the school from making adjustments in a changing world. The school will not be equipped to compete effectively for the scarce specialties which are in high demand by the students and at the same time will be prevented from eliminating useless and redundant programs.
b) The effect of collective bargaining, in its relatively artificial determination of higher wages, on employment is insufficiently accounted for. In a highly inelastic demand situation such as that represented by high school students whose attendance in class is enforced by law, monopoly power, which is what collective bargaining represents, is highly effective in obtaining increased funds for its users. In a more elastic situation where student enrollment is highly responsive to costs, school reputation, and instruction quality, the main effect of such monopoly power will be to reduce employment (through closing of schools if by no other way) not increase wages. This conclusion is reinforced by other expected outcomes of collective bargaining: reduced incentive to innovate in teaching, to introduce new programs, to improve instruction quality in the presence of contract guaranteed wages; and general education in the institution's output quality because of the forced transfer of budget funds to faculty salaries which need to be used for non-salary necessities.
c) Collective bargaining is regarded as the only effective instrument by which faculty can achieve equally shared authority with the administration in the academic power structure. This is a mistaken view. The concept would have some validity if it were only the administration with whom we would be contesting. Unfortunately, it is not the administration nor even the governor or the legislature with whom we would be striving but with the whole voting public. Some people like firemen, policemen, and nigh school teachers have

and term papers rather than using computer-graded multiple-guess exams? Why dig out extra material for a lecture rather than plodding through the text?
The answers to these questions are of course that there are no answers. The pride of a teacher in his profession would be gone.
Dr. Utech s response
I take issue with Professor Mitchell’s contention that TAUWF is or ever was a union-at least in the usual sense of the word. To begin with, unions have inherent power: collective bargaining, for example. The only power TAUWF possesses is that power given it by either the university administration, the Board of Regents, or the state legislature. And that power is onlv of making suggestions. Therefore, TAUWF could never take a position other than one consonant with administrative policy: it has no muscle. This is why TAUWF passed a resolution to seek collective bargaining. And this is what Professor Mitchell refers to as a departure from TAUWF’s traditional approach, and he objects. He prefers that faculty beg for favors.
What are some other things that Professor Mitchell dislikes about unions? Besides collective bargaining, he thinks that unionization would make faculty work harder in their own behalf. True. But unless you believe in welfare, faculty will only get what they work for and if the rewards are worthy, I don't think you will find many faculty complaints. Mitchell also complains that the faculty will have little understanding or ex-
fiertise in union negotiation. True. But faculty earn quickly and if TAUWF affiliates with the Wisconsin Education Association Council it will get all of the expertise and financial support necessary to meet any exigency. Further, Mitchellmitchell's response
had moderate success in such contests, but they are providing services which the public very drastically needs. The service which college faculty provide is not nearly as critically needed as some of these others (or what is just as important, the public may not think so), so that our prospective leverage will not be great.
Moreover, to say that collective bargaining is the only effective tool is to ignore the substantial ains tnat have been made in effective faculty involvement in administration matters through individual faculty autonomy in the classroom, through departments operated democratically by faculty, through faculty inputs at both the school and university levels. It ignores the effective lobbying activity of TAUWF at the state level in obtaining wages, benefits, tenure protection, and faculty input at the state level. These gains have been the result of mutual cooperation rather than militant competitive bargaining. The prospect is that many of these gains will be lost rather than enhanced in a collective bargaining atmosphere. We may belatedly discover that tne grass only looks greener over there and that the frying pan is not the hottest conceivable place to be.
attacks the concept of "fair share" as a union evil. But to be against “fair share” is to condone freeloaders, faculty who would benefit from union negotiations but never pay a cent for union costs. "Fair share" means just that. Everybody pays for their fair share of union benefits.
Strikes. Professor Mitchell suspects that a faculty union would use the strike if necessary. Perhaps,but without the legal right to strike, the faculty union would be without any real power. And f might add that unions dislike strikes as much as anyone else.
Professor Mitchell’s assessment of the public school teacher’s predicament is somewhat humorous. He is crediting their "pathetic" situation to the introduction of the union and collective bargaining. Come now professor, didn’t this kind of situation exist in the public schools long before unions came on the scene? Read the history of the American public school system. Finally, if I understand Proffesor Mitchell’s parting shot at unions, he feels they would vigorously attempt to protect tenure and academic freedom, something he believes that the courts will justifiably strike out. If unions can prevent the kind of police state that would deny society one of its best critics, the university, I think Professor Mitchell advances the most convincing argument I can think for unionizing tomorrow. wa

tinue obtaining information, and recruit total student and administrative support for the Alcohol Proposal.
After the information is collected the committee on Alcohol of URHA will then be faced with the most difficult task. All the information collected from each campus must be condensed into a concise presentation, bolstered by factual data. The effect of this presentation appears rather doubtfull. since certain administrators and Rejzents have complete objection to the proposal.
One housing director is worried that if “we become more liberal in our hall policies, we may experience a number of serious-minded students fleeing the halls for the quiet, no-nonsense atmosphere of off-campus rooms and apartments.”
One regent stated, “I must add that many of us (regents) are looking forward to the day when the
interest of groups such as yours is turned to such concerns as the improvement of study conditions in the residence halls, or something else more culturally productive than the favored topic of alcohol and 24 hour visitation.
In final analysis, the Alcohol Policy has a good chance of being accepted by the Board of Regents, if students take an active stand on the policy, and get involved.
A lot of credit should be given to Terry Jepson. President of URHA, and URHA Committee on Alcohol. Through their work, its quite possible that in the near future alcohol over o per cent by weight, will be allowed in Residence Halls throughout the University of Wisconsin System.

Students with family incomes between $4,000 and $12,000 — the median family income of all college students at the time of the data used in the report — would get grants of decreasing size. The council calculated that the grants and the higher tuitions would balance out at a family income of $8,600 per year; students from families with higher incomes would pay more for school thaa they do today, and those from poorer families would pay less.
These figures are all based on data from the 1969-70 academic year, when the typical American family earned about $9,700. The rise in family income since then — the median income of college students’ families has risen to at least $14,000 from $12,000 — expggerates the impression that the council favors the very poor over the lower middle class. Census data snow that the $8,600 breakeven point is higher than the average wage that factory workers received in 1970. According to the 1969-70 data, at least 41 per cent of American families would benefit from the council’s proposal, and only 36 per cent would pay the entire tuition increase.
The council estimated the increase at $540 per year. But this 1969-70 figure may have been overtaken by the way in which public colleges have raised tuition in the last few years, without any prompting from the council. The National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, whose member schools enroll about 30 per cent of the nation’s college students, says their average tuition is $520 this year. It says a survey of 38 member schools shows an average cost of undergraduate instruction to be $1,624.
TTiese figures seem to imply that at these schools the council’s plan, to help more poor and lower middle-class youth into college, would mean an average increase in tuition of $292 per year for the wealthiest third of American families. The Carnegie proposal would raise their tuition by about $21.
“SUBSIDIZED BY TAXPAYERS
Proponents of the council's plan consider ti more just than the present system, under which taxpayers pay about 80 per cent of the tuition for every student, no matter how rich. Most children do not go to college, especially if they are poor; and subsidies come primarily from state and local taxes, such as the sales tax, which tend to fall most heavily upon the poor.
The whole concept embodied in the grants-instead-of-subsidies approach runs counter to the traditional American meal of state colleges open to all citizens at no cost. This concept has been badly eroded by inflation and by voters unwillingness to pay for ever-raising enrollments; California was one of the last big states to give up free tuition, in 1970, and it has already shot up to $640. So there is genuine fear that the council’s proposal will make respectable what has hither to been attributed to inflation, and that the idea of free higher education may be buried forever.
"What they are really trying to do is turn higher education into a welfare program, and God knows we don’t need any more welfare programs,’’ complains Allan W. Ostar. executive director of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
Ostar says state legislatures might buy the council’s proposal for raising tuition: “But if they are assuming that the state legislatures will take the increased tuition and put it into student-aid money, they haven’t worked with state

Combat the Dangers of Xmas
THE DANGER OF XMAS XPENSE
Merry Xmas! The summer green is fading, marking the beginning of the Yule Season. Another sign that the season is upon us is the fading green in the wallet. It is the joyous season of rip-offs, when retail stores markup their merchandise, hire store detectives, and polish up their fisheye mirrors.
A heartwarming note: Muggers can show Christian charity. A coed lately reported a mugger would not accept her purse. Her conscience is bothering her because the nice man only shoved a un in her back and was only trying to get to know er while steering her down an unlit street. In answer to his question, she would like to let him know her measurements are 28-27-34 and she would like to get in touch with him through the Oshkosh police. She seems to think wallet size mugshots of him would be a thoughtful and original Xmas gift for her girl friends.
A fashionable pet for the paranoid person or those who own stereos, cameras, and typewriters is either a German Shepard or a Doberman Pinscher. Get the most for your money by selecting a hearty brute with a cold wet nose and a vicious nature. Happiness may be a warm puppy, but “Security is a vicious dog."
THE DANGER OF
Yes, it is already October and the great American advertising cycle is shifting into high gear and slipping into the comfortable rut of crass Xmas commercialism. There is a Santa in every store, children are compiling their annotated Xmas lists, and a new skin-nick depicting Jesus Christ's sex
life has been released. People clinging to their cherished traditions. Mom clutches her nonshedding silvery aluminum tree to her bosom and dad’s office party is the only time people shed their inhibitions. This is a just compensation for the dozen bottles of Scotch he gave tne big bosses, the milkman, and the paperboy.
XMAS IS A COMMUNIST PLOT
Since Thomas Nast cartooned Santa Claus around the turn of the century, Americans have been victimized by this devilish plot.Parents subject their children to trauma ana confusion with the myth of Santa Claus. The family life and mental health of a nation has been subverted by this Santa Claus.
What normal parent would put his screaming child in the lap of a strange old man who offers candy and promises fantastic toys to hundreds of little children? Wasn’t this the type we were warned to never eet into cars with? This type of behavior causes Electra and Oedipal problems too. Obviously Santa is a Commie,pinko plot. Why do you think he wears a red suit?
XMAS MA Y BE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH_______________________
Christmas is a season of joy for God’s gift of His Son. A season of light and hope for world peace. Statistics prove December is the peak month for suicide and homicide. It is a stressful month and depression is widespread. “Merry Christmas” may bring a response of “Humbug." It may also trigger someone into burying you with a stake of holly through your heart. A helpful hint: don’t ask Santa for a handgun this year. Send your legislators a Christmas card with a letter supporting gun-
THE DANGER OF CONFORMITY
Mr. Smith is merrUy stringing his house with a psychedelic light show rivaling that of Mr. Jones from across tne street. They will blink at each other until the final blizzard in March has thawed enough to chisel the bulbs out of the ice. Assert your non conformity by getting high enough to hallucinate that you're trucking down the main drag in a red and green Las Vegas. Use your imagination. Free your mind, only don’t get run down by a snow plow.
Don’t acknowledge cards and gifts. Everyone knows they are a nuisance.
THE DANCER OF CHOOSING THE WRONG GIFT______________________
We all know that what our maiden aunt needs is Kama Sutra Oil, not lace edged hankies. Compromise and buy her a long flannel nightgown. Guys, suprise that girl you’ve been going with for five years with an expensive looking little box with a lock of your hair. It will add tne finishing touch to the voodoo doll that she has been sticking pins in.
MORE HELPFUL HINTS-CHOOSING THE RIGHT GIFT
For avant-garde, bip gift-givers, I could see patenting a kit for celebrating an organic, vegetarian, herbal scented Xmas. There would be a big market for a lemon scented Xmas tree., and enthusiasm for Yule log incense. A Shakespeare coloring book for your friends. Put out cranberry and popcorn chains with suet for the birds. For that revolutionary touch throw marijuana seeds to the squirrels.
Threat yourself to Coke Snuff, available at your local head shop. Fantastic-finely powdered tobacco with lots of menthol. Coke Snuff comes in either Strawberry or I emon scent, and is packed in a cute little round stash box, about the size of a silver dollar. It is real handy. Students could stub out their cigarettes and pull out their snuff when the fire inspector comes around. A perfect accessory, and so appropriate to the season, a coke spoon in the shape of a cross shows piety and good taste. It also proves you are aware of the movie Superfly, which you should take your parents to. Maybe they wilf appreciate you for dabbling in pot. pills or booze.
Get into the Lemmings. They have a delightful parody of the Woodstock Rock Fest. The spirit of the Woodstock nation was to live and love and celebrate youth, therefore the Lemmings album dwells on mass suicide and touches on subjects like cannibalism. A perfect counterpoint to tne joy in the world at Christmas. Give it to a suicidal friend. Maybe he will end up laughing at himself.
Laughter, love and tolerance in everyone and for everyone are my wish for every Christmas. As you mignt have noticed a tone of bitterness in the article, that is anger finding an outlet. There is injustice, violence, and hate. Being meek, being loving and accepting is not enough. You can heap those “burning coals of fire (love) on your enemy.
It is not enough. A cloud of evil is drifting over the world, driving me mad, making me shun people in the vain hope of peace in isolation. Help me and others to “love one another." Christ was a living example of that exhortation, so remember Christ at Christmas and have a Merry Xmas.

graduation from UW-0 with a major in jouralism.
Since joining the staff of the Free Press, I’ve worked in photography as well as setting a design for tne three main papers’ in the chain which lies in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago.
The papers are all weekly or semi-weekly and have to deal heavily with local people and community life in order to have leadership in an area where people depend on major Chicago dalies for news on state, national and world levels.
Most of my work is done in sports and with local clubs and organizations.
But an important part of my week’s work is searching, finding and communicating with people doing everyday things with a little twist, because people enjoy looking at people.
To communicate an idea, a photo must at times not only represent an idea, but it should exaggerate it to really get the point across.
Wrestling is a sport of movement and holds. This photo captures a match at a point which may have lasted only seconds. Even the most avid wrestling fan could have missed this, but a photograph captures and holds it at its peak.
A series of photos can give a sense of movement to the still photos. With this series of Coach Bob White and his wife Shirley, we can see and almost feel what they do as the team takes an early lead, loses it, then on a last second basket, win the game by a single point.
This can certainly not be classified as an everyday cross
country photograph. Yet except for the lady on tne bench, it is just that. I believe that the expression on the lady’s face and the question in one's mind of what she’s thinking makes this my favorite photograph.I
On January 29, 1966, the local Alethians at UW-Oshkosh were initiated as the Delta Psi Chapter of Alpha Phi. There were 56 members at the time. Aloha Phi is a national social sororitv with 94 collegiate chapters and 215 Alumnae chapters in the United States and Canada. Alpha Phi was founded at Syracuse University. On October 10th of this year, the 50 members of the Delta Psi Chapter celebrated Alpha Phi’s 101st birthday. It’s home office is in Evanston. Illinois.

Lynn Karcz, Connie Doll, Jean Fiore, Jackie Koehn, Vicky Vought.Alpha Phi is a member of the National Panhellanic Conference which is a deliberate body, empowered to make recommendations to member fraternities and refer to them for discussion matters which are of interest to the college and fraternity world.
The Alpha Phi philanthropy is Cardiac Aid and contributions are given to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles for surgery and convalescent care and to Heart Hospital at the University of Minnesota, for fellowships in cardiac research. Many alumnae members serve as members on the Board of Directors of local Heart Associations. In the 57 years of service to the heart fund, Alpha Phi has raised $1,500,000. The Delta Psi Chapter has aided in community services, such as sponsoring a Welfare Party for the Children of Winnebago County every year, visiting the nursing homes at Christmas, selling Earth Day buttons, and selling POW bracelets last year. Along with our service projects, we also have many parties, including our Winter Dinner Dance and Franny Willard party in the spring.
Many Alpha Phi’s are active on campus. For the last eight years, an Alpha Phi has been Greek Woman and the Chapter has won Yell-Like-Hell for four years. Come out and meet us at 1245 Titan Court!

The Oshkosh chapter was founded in I960, becoming the first national frat on campus. The chapter grewhelping other local fraternities go national. In 1967 it was voted the best chapter in the nation.
For twelve years Sigma Taus made their home on Titan Court. Fall 1973 marks the first semester the fraternity has lived in their new home on Josslyn Street south of Titan Stadium. Building the $135,000 structure has been the organization ;s most ambitious undertaking.
Sigma Tau Gamma is based on the belief that college friendships last life long and that social interaction, campus activities, and scholarship are important. Members pay social dues which are used for parties, intramural athletics, pre-game psych-ups, Homecoming activities, and the annual White Rose Formal. Sig Taus presently hold the 1972-73 All Sports trophy. White Rose Formal 73 was held at the Lake Geneva Playboy Club and Homecoming was celebrated at Westhaven Country Club.
Advisors for the fraternity are gymnastics coach Ken Allen and accounting instructor Mike Kelly.

Delta Chi is an international fraternity. Founded on October 13,1890 at Cornell University in New York, the organization has since grown with over 70 chapters in both the United States and Canada.
The Oshkosh chapter was founded in 1966. Since then, our chapter has proven itself to be one of the strongest fraternities in both sports and academics.
Besides winning trophies for our participation in extracurricular activities, our chapter takes great pride in accepting the 1973 Scholarship trophy. Our cumulative grade point average was a winning 2.741 overall.
Delta Chi truly has something for everyone. Our house is located at 911 Wisconsin Street. Anyone wishing more information is welcome to stop by anytime.

Chi Omega Sorority is located at 1259 Titan Court. Formerly Lambda Chi local sorority, we chose to become a national sorority in 1965. We are proud to say we belong to the largest national sorority in the United States.
As a social sorority we are involved in many activities on campus. You will always see Chi Omegas working actively on Homecoming, Winter Carnival, Greek Week, and a number of intramural sports.
Although we are a social sorority, various service projects and philanthropies are a large part of our lives. Singing and decorating at Mercy and Winnebago hospitals for Halloween and Christmas are annual projects.
Last spring we rode in the bike-a-thon for retarded youth and at the present we are actively engaged in the Cancer drive.
Aside from all this activity we still find time for ourselves--as individuals and as sisters. Our sisterhood is strong and offers more than any of us could ever express. n

iTau Kappa Epsilon
Today Number Un, Tomorrow Number One. That was Tau Kappa Epsilon's rush slogan a few years ago. Tomorrow has arrived for the fraternity for life as Tau Kappa Epsilon, during its brief history, has grown and developed into the No. 1 fraternity on campus.
From a TKE colony of nine men in 1965, Tau Kappa Epsilon has grown to a 45 man chapter truly dedicated to the principles and ideals of what a fraternity is all about.
Awards and achievements have been the main goal of the No. 1 fraternity. TKE’s won the scholarship trophy, went undefeated in intramural
football last year and to this date are undefeated again this year, won Winter Carnival the last two years, and won fraternity basketball conference the last two years.
TKE’s also have established themselves on the social spectrum as well. The TKE basement is well remembered by many people who visit the house. With a 40 foot bar, beautiful trophy case, and dance floor all makes for a great time.
With this and a great respect for every member Tau Kappa Epsilon is truly dedicated to brotherhood and individuality. Tau Kappa Epsilon is truly the fraternity for life. wa
Phi Sigma Epsilon
Phi Sigma Epsilon Fraternity was formed on our campus in 1964. We currently have a membership of fifty-five men strong.
Our six week pledge period no longer contains the physical harassment and abuse which was for so long a traditional and integral part of the pledge period. It has evolved into a learning experience about the ways of the fraternity. At the end of the pledge period the popular Pretty Girl party takes place.
We have stood out in Intramural Sports by taking the Greek All Sports Trophy four times out
of the last six years. We have teams for all activities which are offered by the intramural department. The Phi Sig’s have taken first or second in golf, football, basketball and swimming.
Our parties are as varied as the sports which we compete in. Hayrides, 1920's parties, Greaser parties. To a parties and Car Rallies are just a few of the diversified parties which we have throughout the year. We are a group of individuals who are joined together to make our University years a well rounded experience in our lives.
Pi Sigma Epsilon
Pi Si ma Epsilon is the national Professional Fraternity in Marketing, Sales Management and Selling. The Beta Theta Chapter established on the UW-0 campus in May, 1970, is designed to provide better educational opportunities, improved career possibilities, productive professional contacts, and closer student and faculty relationships. Members of the fraternity are students of the School of Business Administration.
This year PSE is offering its marketing services to businesses in the Fox Valley area, in order to strengthen the ties between the Oshkosh Community and the University. The assistance offered to businesses and associations includes areas of Marketing Research, Merchandising, Surveys, Forecasting, Distributing, and Advertising Campaigns. This total sales endeavor will provide a valuable source for professional experience for the members.
Circle K is a campus service organization open to all interested students. The dub strives to fill unusual needs both on campus and. in the community at large, seeking to provide needed services that often go neglected.
Cirde K is the only campus organization built upon the foundation of mutual trust and respected individuality. Always open to new ideas, the club encourages all students to come out and help us as we seek to serve.
Delta Sigma Phi
Alpha Phi Alpha
The Eta Pi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha began on the University of Wisconsin—Oshkosh campus, then Wisconsin State University—Oshkosh, on June 24, 1971.
The first active Alpha on this campus was Lonnie Woods, who became an Alpha during the summer of 1968. With his help and the help of Hoyt Harper and Charles Rooinson and other members of the Epsilon Tau Chapter in Milwaukee and the Zeta Iota Chapter in Whitewater the Oshkosh chapter began.
Since that time there have been more members added. In September of 1971 Andrew Hopgood came from the Eta Beta Chapter in Plattevilie to be Eta Pi’s faculty advisor. James Harris is another Alpha who is a faculty member on this campus.
The Chapter is regarded as a social and service fraternity. The Eta Pi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha believes in the need for a strong Black Organization.f •
Alpha Phi Omega
Alpha Phi Omega is the largest national service fraternity. It was established on this campus in 1948 and celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this year. The fraternity was founded on the principles of leadership, friendship, and service. Spreading its influence to members, campus, community and nation, it has combined the service with the social into a worthwhile organization.
Each year Epsilon Upsilon sponsors a number of service projects. The Alpha Phi Omega Blood Drive, held in conjunction with the American Red Cross, is held in the fall and the spring. An Ugly Man Contest is held every year prior to the Christmas holidays. Money raised goes to Oshkosh Family Services for the benefit of needy families in the area during the yuletide season. The Alpha Phi Omega Book Sale is held in the spring. Receipts go to the Student Emergency Ix an Fund on campus for students in need of a small short term loan at no interest. These, along with other projects, comprise much of this growing and concerned fraternal organization on the move.
Gamma Phi Beta
This year Gamma Phi Beta celebrates its first century s existence. Since our birth at Syracuse University. New York in 1874 we have grown and prospered to chapters on 100 college campuses throughout the United States. We take pride in our history, our traditions, and our Sorority.
We are proud of our ideals and our high scholastic standing. We take an active interest in campus functions. We loyally support our University and our Sorority.
Gamma Phi Beta believes in maintaining a Chapter of united efforts without diminishing unique personalities. We invite you to share witn us lasting friendships and to search for greater knowledge.
Sigma Pi Zeta Beta Tau
The fraternal organization is a combination of many creative people combined together in an educational environment. Sigma Pi, which was established on this campus in 1965, has created a social record of fine achievement from its origin.
Socially oriented, but educationally developed, Sigma Pi achieved the highest gradepoint average of all fraternities on campus during the 1971-72 term.
Sigma Pi is a Greek name that thrives on friendship. To be together with all and still be yourself is true friendship. Developing this friendship is an everlasting experience, not just that of your educational years. To become involved with others is a part of Sigma Pi. And we achieve this goal through the members we pledge.
Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity was founded on this campus in 1969. We have had a rebirth during the year 1973-74. During this time the fraternity has grown to one of the largest memberships it has ever had. This was done in part by the fraternity’s new look which was that of the "Unfrat."
The Unfrat realized that people were losing interest in the Greek system so they rearranged their entire fraternity, eliminating some of the archaic and dated fraternity ways. They brought them up to date, making the fraternity modern but still keeping with the traditions of Zeta Beta Tau. It was because of these changes the fraternity had the second largest Fall Pledge Class on campus.
During the year Zeta Beta Tau participated in such activities as the All Campus Picnic and Homecoming, besides having a full social calendar of their own chapter activities which included a Homecoming dinner, a Sleighride and a Thanksgiving Buffet.
ZBT also kept up the tradition they started on this campus by having a Christmas party and iving gifts to the Head Start children - ampus School.
92Sigma Phi Epsilon
Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at Richmond College (now the University of Richmond) in Richmond, Virginia on November 1, 1901 by 12 men. The 12 men were mostly theology students who were seeking a brotherhood based upon Christian ideals and principles.
There are 60 national fraternities and Sigma Phi Epsilon ranks 38th in order of founding. Although Sig Ep is a comparatively young fraternity, it has grown to be the second largest fraternity in number of chapters. Sigma Phi Epsilon is represented on 201 college and university campuses throughout the nation. Today there arc over 100,000 members of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
The Oshkosh chapter was founded in 1967. There are now over 150 alumni members.
At Sigma Phi Epsilon we believe in taking advantage of opportunities and in getting the most out of life at college. All of us are here for different reasons, and we have different ambitions. In Sigma Phi Epsilon good scholarship and leadership are expected.
Sigma Phi Epsilon.. ."tomorrow's fraternity for today's man." n

Since our last issue. Dr. C. W. Fetter Jr., assistant professor of geology at the University of Wisconsin—Oshkosh, spoke to the First World Congress on Water Resources at Chicago on "Water Resources Management.”
Water resources experts from more than 35 countries gathered at tne Chicago Congress which was sponsored by the International Water Resources Association. Theme of the five-day Congress was "Water for the Human Environment.”
The complete text of which will be published in the proceedings of the Congress. More than 150 papers were presented and discussed at the session.
According to Dr. Fetter, the Congress pointed out that world ‘water resource problems were basically of two types-insufficient amounts and poor quality. Although the technology is available to solve these problems, the developing countries of the world do not have the massive amounts of capital necessary to implement the technology, he indicated.
Dr. Fetter joined the UW—Oshkosh faculty in 1971. Prior to that time he was senior staff hvdrogeologist for the New York consulting firm of Holzmacher, McLendon and Murrell. His bachelor’s degree in chemistry was received from DePauw University where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Indiana University awarded him a master’s degree in geology and a doctoral degree in hydrology.
Dr. Fetter has published several articles in scientific journals and has written more than 15 reports on various consulting projects. He is active in research and consulting in the field of environmental hydrogeology and environmental impact assessments.
He also is a member of the UW—O research team investigating the use of bulrushes for sewage treatment.
Gene Tenuta, Kenosha, received the half-wing of a cdet entering the Army ROTO flight training program while Ed Tucker, Oshkosh, received a 200-mile certificate for completing 200 miles of jogging in the university-wide "Run for Your Life" program sponsored by the ROTC department.
Capt. Lawrence Robillard of the Marine Corps at Milwaukee presented a Letter of Commendation to Daniel J. Bourassa, Green Bay, for achieving high honors and appointment to the Marine Corps Development and Education Command honor list. ”

Ring out the old, and ring in the new! Since the arrival of Chancellor Birnbaum the campus forecasters have predicted blue skies and sunny days for this college community. Dr. Birnbaum offers Oshkosh an invigoration that has been lacking for over a decade. Perhaps the anticipated fresh air the new chancellor will breath into this university can stem the negativism felt within the institution, by both faculty and students.
Some first-glance impressions and ideas of Dr. Birnbaum are presented in this issue by Last Quiver writer Dave Rank.
One of the immediate problems facing Birnbaum is the decreasing enrollment. Students are the University, and of course, where there is a lack of them, there is also a lack of funds. When confronted with diminishing state funds, it is necessary to cut teachers and curriculum. The circle becomes complete when prospective students are appraisea of the resulting academic decline, and decide to enroll elsewhere.
Writer Bill Schlamer examines the many reasons for decreasing enrollment in a two part series. Part I is contained in this issue on pages 18-22.
Rights, freedoms, and democratic process are topics for discussion as Last Quiver writer Greg Madson puts forth the view that students are victims of a dictatorial university system. Mad-son’s vitriolic pen lashes out at the role of the chancellor and board of regents for their determination of student disciplinary guidelines, as spelled out in the Student Handbook.
The sports focus for this issue is on school spirit, or what Jon Iiermanson describes as the lack of it. Hermanson talked to cheerleaders, coaches, and other sports-people in an attempt to investigate the why’s and wherefore’s for the apparent apathy at UW-Oshkosh.
A calendar of women’s intercollegiate athletics is on page 61, followed by a problem statement and explanation concerning the physical education department. Some members of the women’s department are finding it difficult to divide their time between teaching and coaching. A lack of staff and money are agravating the problem.
The sport section is rounded out as Dave Van Duser and his wrestling career at UW-0 are examined by Barb Cherry.
The OS A speaker series is brought to Oshkosh four men whose diversity of interests spanned a rather interesting spectrum. Erich Von Danikan and Bruce Lahue gave students a taste of existentialism, and in contrast, James Kilpatrick and Godfrey Cambridge gave their views on matters more down to earth. Last Quiver writers and photographers were on hand to catch the verbal and visual highlights of each speaker.
Certainly one of the more controversial movies made in 1974 is The Exorcist. Mike Muckian, our at large critic and reviewer, gives us a first person narrative of his journey to the local cinema to see the devils own spectacle. Mike, following the footsteps of millions across the country, went from the theater a bit shaken.
Guest photographers for this second to last issue of the Last Quiver are Leroy Zacher of the audio visual department and William Torow of the art department.

3You’re a sophomore. You've got the 60 credits required to move off-campus. Now’s your big chance to kiss the residence halls good-bye. You remember how you dreaded living in a dormitory; the noisy halls, the ridiculous rules, your pain in the ass roommate, the communal bathrooms, and the food.
Ah! The food, who could forget the food. The beef industry is still amazed at how many ways Saga has come up with to prepare soybean diluted hamburger meat.
You ponder more, thinking of the fun times you had living in a residence hall. The many Saturday ofternoons you spent dragging a half barrel up to your room for the party that would follow. And the time you pennied your neighbor in his room during finals.
By now you’re scratching your brain, thinking what was good about living in a residence hall. Sure you were close to your classes and all the other activities the campus had to offer, and you enjoyed having someone else do the cooking.
That’s all fine and dandy but it just isn’t like living in an apartment. The freedom of an apart-ment-that’s wnat you want, where there is no one to tell you when and what to eat or drink, or when you can have someone in vour room. That’s what you want, the freedom of an apartment!
Time and again it is brought to the attention of the administrators and the Board of Regents that they could run the residence halls as apartments. The University would fill the halls instead of closing them down. Instead of forcing adults to live in residence halls, they would be turning people away.
I am convinced that the State of Wisconsin could run these residence halls on a competitive basis with off campus apartments if they cnose to do so. Besides the fact the State isn't out to make a profit, residence halls could be run cheaper, due to things being done on a volume basis.
Now, how do you make a residence hall into an apartment? The first step is to change the rules they now have. Removing the visitation and alcohol policy would help the situation. Let students do what they want in their rooms (in-
cluding paying for all damages that they are responsible for). Next, change the food program. Let students pay for what they eat. This program has worked successfully in Madison and other Universities.
Another major step is to change the living arrangements around. Let the girls and guys live on the same floor (provided bathrooms are changed). It is a proven fact that in residence halls having men and women living on the same floor the hall is kept cleaner and vandalism is drastically reduced. In an attempt to reduce noise, carpeting could be installed, first in the halls and next in the rooms. Other Universities have tried these innovations and found them workable.
These ideas would benefit the economic situation of both the student and the university.
What USRH is doing about the situation? This spring, USRH will go before the Board of Regents in an attempt to change the present beer policy to include alcohol.
Next year, hopefully, one tower of Scott Hall will house men and women on the same floor. This would bring an important and necessary change to co-ed living.
USRH is presently looking into a plan for the addition of kitchens on each floor in Donner and Breese Halls.
All the changes that USRH is working on need the student’s support. Things don’t get done in favor of the students unless tne students work for them. We need your support and ideas to show that the things that we are working on are actually wanted by the students.
Eventually there will be a time when mandatory dorm living will be found illegal. At that time the administrators will be forced to change the living conditions in the residence halls, or loose their jobs. It is about time the administrators wake up and face the inevitable future. n

f78'- 410U RaIi RaIh, "School SpiRiT" OR TIie Game ThAT HacI More Team TIian Spectators
There is growing concern on some parts of campus over the apathetic attitude of the student body. The situation seems to warrant an evaluation of the entity (or nonentity) called school spirit.
Chris Lalley, a WRST sport-scaster, said "school spirit is people getting behind a teamto influence the outcome. I’ve commented several times on the air that I was disappointed in the turnout at a game. A crowd can make or break a team."
Lalley said that he feels the university needs an event similar to what John Powless, basketball coach at UW-Madison, did when he drew a technical foul while standing on the court and shaking his fist at the crowd. “This campus needs something, a kick in the pants if necessary, to change its attitude," said Lalley.
He said that too many times it seems that the people come to watch a basketball or football game just for the entertainment. They don’t really care who’s playing. Lalley suggested that an open letter to the students in the papers might be effective. He said that the driving force of school spirit should come from the coacn.
Lalley said that Oshkosh is one of the few places where home court advantage doesn’t make any difference. The students just sit and watch, occasionally applauding a good play by either team.
When asked about the role of the cheerleaders in school spirit, Lalley said he felt they nave fallen down in providing good motivation to the audience. He cited Eau Claire’s cheerleaders as more representative of the title, especially when they go through their acrobatic routines.
Shirley White, advisor to the cheerleaders, added to Lalley's definition of school spirit. “I think that school spirit is more than just a football or basketball game. School spirit is two words that are more than just an athletic event. It is a spirit that is carried on through everything we do.”
The lack of school spirit can often be attributed to a lack of publicity. "One of the things that is very important for a newspaper or other methods of publicity is to accentuate good things and play down things that aren't so good. But for some reason we don't always do that. In the long run, it's like if a family has problems. If you keep it in the family the neighbors down the street aren’t going to know about it, but if you tell everybody, then they’re going to be looking for that problem," said White.
"Sports is an open way of promoting school spirit. If you have a good team and get behind the team, then you will get publicity,” White added. “I think crowd behavior is extremely important, and I don’t mean just yelling. I mean the behavior of the crowd. Sometimes at football games we get poor publicity from just a few students. They’re the ones that people from out of town will talk about."
White said that one way to alleviate the publicity problem would be to construct two large, permanent signs at each end of campus that could be used to advertize not only athletic events, but also cam pus-wide activities.
Debbie Stoesz, a member of the cheerleading squad, said that it is disappointing that on a campus as large as Oshkosh there are so few girls trying out for cheerleading. She wondered if all
the time put into cheerleading was worth the rewards gotten from a small, silent crowd.
Cheri Royea, another member of the squad, said they have tried to stay away from the "high school" cheer as much as possible, but found that other schools use this type with great success. She added that the squad tries to incorporate various types of cheers in their routine. "II we can motivate the audience, that will in turn motivate the team," she said.
It seemed the general consensus that the key to a turnaround was to get the freshmen involved in the school spirit philosophy. Older students are too set in their ways.
Carolyn Luedtke, a veteran cheerleader who also worked on freshman orientation this past summer, said that she heard of other students telling freshmen that the athletic teams, cheerleaders, fraternities and sororities were "really crappy." Luedtke stated, "If we could have a day set aside where we could get the kids and get them interested, it would help. Freshmen are so gullible anyway and believe anything you tell them. I know I did.”
"There are kids coming out of high school that are really fired up and want to yell. But when they get to a game and they see all these people sitting there with their straight faces, it really turns them off," she added.
White said it is the responsibility of the faculty to inform students of the events on campus and to be enthusiastic about it. It doesn't have to be just athletics, but everything, she added. "It pays big dividends in public relations, locally and statewide. I think students really want this
11sort of thing rather than just ‘the strip social life. Students are looking for more fun things to do. A lot of students are bored with the party emphasis, but I don’t want to blame just the students.” Part of the responsibility does rest on the shoulders of the coaches. "One of the aspects of school spirit is the development of a successful athletic program," said Dr. Russ Tiedmann, assistant basketball and head
in my mind as a coach and as a teacher and educator that athletics has tremendous value; not only to the individual, but to the school as well."
In referring to his role as coach, Tiedemann said. “I’ve got to motivate my kids and get them ready to play ball. If my kids are flat, it’s my fault. I didn’t have them mentally prepared to play." He pointed out that it is a cyclical effect where the coach motivates
and a coach have to motivate themselves, but the crowd does have an effect. I’m not
diminishing that at all,"
From all the comments made, it seems that the responsibility for the upkeep of school spirit rests on all segments of the university, be it faculty, administration, or student. Each must work in their own way to keep it alive, or it will be like
baseball coach. "When you achieve success, the school spirit follows naturally. This is the job of the coach."
Tiedemann said that some of the weaknesses in school spirit could be attributed to attempts to downgrade the athletic programs and cutbacks that intend to eliminate some programs entirely.
“Athletics seem to be under fire." he said. “There is no doubt
the team, the team motivates the crowd, the crowd in turn motivates the team and coach. The unfortunate thing about this cycle is it is difficult to determine where to begin.
"There is no question on my mind that our teams would
fierform better if there were ar er crowds at the ball games. This certainly is a factor. It sounds like I’m contradicting myself because I said that a team

After fifteen years, a new chancellor sits on the leather upholstered throne of UW-O. Robert Birnbaum. age 37, came to Oshkosh after serving as vice chancellor for higher education in the state of New Jersey and is now the most powerful man on campus. It is his leadership which will guide Oshkosh through the rest of the decade and his attitudes and ideas which will shape the future of this institution.
To get some idea of iust what his attitudes about Oshkosh are. The I ast Quiver interviewed chancellor Birnbaum in his office in Dempsey Hall.
The first thing that strikes you when you meet the new chancellor is his informality. He makes no airs about who he is. A feeling of cordiality and relaxation follows him wnerever he goes.
Chancellor Birnbaum is a dedicated and open individual who wants to streamline the administration and improve the quality of education at UW-O. He sees himself as a guiding hand for the university, one that seeks out alternatives and makes suggestions.
I sort of view my role as one of making people in this institution aware of alternatives and saying (to them): ‘Take a look at it ana tell me what you think.’ I’m going to be out constantly looking for these things, ninety percent of which win turn out not to be supportive of what Oshkosh wants to do but ten percent of which might. Then I want to make sure I’m very responsive to reactions I get to it. and provide support for those things which seem to really be moving us in the proper direction."
Chancellor Birnbaum wants to develop what he calls an active administration, one in which he personally gets involved with activities on campus. “Not so much for any particular purpose,” he said. "But because I enjoy it. I want to get around. I want to meet people. I want to see what’s going on and I want to be part of it."
But Birnbaum's active administration involves more than just his personal partaking of campus life. It is also an administration dedicated to improvement.
“An active administration does not wait for things-for recommendations or projects or proposals-to come up to it and then say yes or no, sending it
back to the committee that recommended it. (It) attempts to create alternatives and discover problems, then sends recommendations to people who can react to them."
Planning is an important part in chancellor Birnbaum’s active administration. He said he was not happy with the state of planning at Oshkosh and hopes to improve it in the next few years. “I don’t know whether it is that much worse or better than the state of planning at a lot of institutions. It's going to be significantly different in the next few years because I happen to firmly believe in the need for planning and the use of planning in making policy decisions."
Birnbaum said that for all the committees devoted to planning, Oshkosh still does not have a long range set of objectives.
"That's something I think is absolutely essential. You need a concept of common goals," he
said, "if you are going to organize an institution to work as a unit rather than as small groups of individuals each doing their own thing."
Chancellor Birnbaum said that a lack of planning helped fuel the controversy in tne faculty layoff mess. But he refused to shoulder all the blame for the layoffs on the UW-O administration.
"I think when you lose on the order of two million dollars from your budget and when the greater part of the budget is made up of personnel salaries, vou’ve got to expect people to be
‘‘I think its exceptionally unfortunate that the layoffs occurred among the tenured faculty because I happen to be a very strong supporter of the concept of tenure. ’
Probably the biggest problem the new chancellor will have to
face is the enrollment drop at UW-O.
This spring Birnbaum plans to make a major effort to stabilize enrollment. "I would consider myself successful if enrollment next September is the same as last September. But I can’t promise. ’
He outlined a three point program which he hopes will increase enrollment:
1. A change in the policy towards transfer students from the UW centers.
A focused approach to preadmission counseling of nigh school students and others involving UW-O students and faculty.
3.Birnbaum has already asked . A focused approach to preadmission counseling of nigh
school students and others involving UW-O students and faculty.
3. Birnbaum has already asked the faculty senate to review academic standings at UW-O including standards for probation, suspension, and graduation to see if they are realistic and educationally sound.
In explaining the third step, Birnbaum pointed out that he in no way intends to lower academic standards. He said he wanted to make sure Oshkosh had a policy which recognized that a student might do poorly in one semester and should not be penalized through the rest of his or her academic career because of it.
Hopefully, he said, these three steps taken together will stabilize enrollment. "But we are fighting outside factors of which we have no control," he said.
There has been growing speculation whether Chancellor Birnbaum will keep the present administrators he inherited from ex-chancellor Guiles. When asked about this, he said:“There are people here who I think are basically supportive of what I want to do and people who perhaps would feel more comfortable in a different kind of setting:. If there were another chancellor sitting in this chair he might have completely opposite feelings about exactly the same people. It's not a reflection on the people. It's a reflection on how they may be able to relate to where I see this institution is going. There probably will be some administrative changes here. This is not something I'm prepared to discuss right now."
Birnbaum said he was still
mulling over the structure he wants the administration at Oshkosh to have in the next few years. Once he has its form more fully conceived, he will decide what type of administrators he needs.
Another are Birnbaum sees problems in is giving faculty a chance to improve themselves. He said it is important to have a system for assisting faculty members in improving their teaching techniques. He expressed concern that faculty members who were having trouble in relating to students or organizing lecture material really do not have anywhere to turn to correct their faults.
Birnbaum would like to work with the faculty to look at the problem and work out some sort of system where faculty members could have help if they need it. He mentioned a number of examples other universities are using:
1. Sabbatical programs where faculty members take a semester or even a year off, for a program of self-improvement whicn would increase their scholarly effectiveness.
2. Released time for faculty members to engage in research or in curriculum development.
3. Teaching Centers with counseling on instructional problems.
4. More team-teaching situations.
5. University seminars in teaching where outstanding teachers would demonstrate to their peers their techniques and help tnem with their problems.
Birnbaum stressed that there are a hundred other things which could be implemented for faculty improvement and that an organized program would have to be worked out after careful study.
On tenure and evaluation of administrators. Birnbaum said:
“I believe that all individuals operating in the university should be evaluated on a periodic basis. Probationary faculty and
junior administrators should be evaluated much more frequently than the more experienced administrators and tenured faculty. After all. the definition of tenure is really someone who has gone through the probationary period.
"But there is a real danger in trying to deal with the abuses of tenure by doing away with tenure itself. There is no system that I’m aware of that offers the protection of academic freedom that tenure does."
Birnbaum is especially excited about the 4-M and general studies programs at UW-D.
“l think both of these are moving towards the establishment of a real alternative in terms of learning styles and organization of material for undergraduates."
Birnbaum felt most undergraduates would still enroll in the more conventional sequences of study, but that enough students would enroll in tne alternative studies programs to make them a very important part of the university.
"I think when this is fully developed, Oshkosh will assume a position of some visibility and leadership in this area of general education."
Birnbaum also said he sees some movement towards interdisciplinary work and that he’d like to see more.
“Curriculum is, of course, primarily a faculty issue which faculty have primary involvement (in). But I intend to be
an active administrator and to bring to the faculty’s attention problems I see and ask them to review these problems and recommend changes."
Chancellor Birnbaum wants to have more student and faculty involvement in administrative decision making. To do this he plans on starting a data system from which anyone interested could find information important to the policies of UW-O.
"People on campus all have to have access to tne same data. Only when they have that, can they ever begin to understand why certain decisions were made and begin to participate in those decisions.”
"Its unfair and its unrealistic to suddenly tell students and faculty, Okay, now we’re going to make you part of the decision making process,' but not to give them tne data upon which tney can make decisions.”
"I would like to set up a data system that makes things like the budget, allocations of faculty and student-faculty credit hours by department (available to everyone). This is public information as far as I’m concerned. Everyone should have access to it. Everyone should know how many faculty members weren’t reappointed last year, not just guess or have various interest groups try and tell them-they should know."
15Chancellor Birnbaum also wants to have more feedback from students and faculty before decisions are made.
“Its not nearly enough to have something set up which allows people to come back and tell you you’ve made a bad decision. You've got to get their involvement at the time the decision is being made. Not only because it will be more likely that they will end up supporting the decision, but also because its going to be a better decision since tney will provide information you yourself don't have access to."
Chancellor Birnbaum said he liked the fact that students sit on the inter-university academic planning council and wants student government involved in as many decision making problems as possible.
"I want to mmet regularly with student government to let them know where things are and to give them the opportunity to say.
Hey, you’re doing something we want to get involved in.'
"I’ve always been a believer in the concept' of student responsibility in the governance of an institution. To those individuals who believe students are irresponsible. I would reply: If you want to have responsible students then they have to be responsible for something. You can t expect people to sit on the periphery of what’s going on and then act responsibly m those few opportunities they get a chance to do it."
"I see students as an integral part of the university. Students are why we are here."
On the problem of relations between the university and the city of Oshkosh, Chancellor Birnbaum said he was not happy with the "hands off' approach each has towards the other. He said he will work to improve
relations with Oshkosh and will meet with the Chamber of Commerce. City Manager, City Council and others to look at the problem.
"We have resources which are very important to the city and resources they should be aware of and take advantage of. And they have resources that would be supportive of our mission and our academic programs. It just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever for two sets of resources sitting side by side and not cooperating with each other. Education, particularly today, is as likely to occur off the campus as it is on the campus."
"After my first five years in this administration, I would like to see the people in the town saying we have the best
university around right here with the best students, the best faculty-they are really a part of this community. And the students would say, Oshkosh is really supportive of what we are doing and why we are here. They understand and appreciate us.
The main handicap right now against better relations is the breaking down of barriers, Birnbaum said. The problem is that everything is done by stereotypes. "People are people, but as long as you maintain the stereotypes, its easy not to think of it like that."
On the question of UW-0 being a racist institution. Birnbaum agreed that the college was probably not the most comfortable place for minorities. That has to change, he said.
"There are special needs of blacks of La Raza or Native American students. But there are equal needs of white students who may never have had contact with students from other kinds of cultural backgrounds. There is a significant need to have these
students understand cultural differences and appreciate them rather than find them strange or unusual.”
Birnbaum said that was the purpose of a university--to change people. One way to do that is to generate more student involvement in such things as the recent Black Experience Week.
In the few short weeks he has been on campus. Chancellor Birnbaum has already stirred up a minor commotion with his uninhibited style and his great visibility to faculty and students. An outgoing, responsive chancellor is something the campus is not familiar with.
"The reason that you are a college administrator Is that you like to spend time with students and faculty and are professionally, intellectually concerned with the kinds of things that they’re concerned with. Mv feeling is, if you don't have this interaction with students and faculty-and you don’t enjoy it-then you are in the wrong business. That’s the reason why I’m here.”
“I like to talk to people. You just can’t wait for people to come to you. I take the initiative. A lot of people have reciprocated by coming up to me. 1 hope they don't feel restrained from doing it
or strange in any way.”
Chancellor Birnbaum's main objective is to have UW-0 become the best university possible.
“What I want to do is have an institution that by itself is so attractive and so inviting that the student will say w, I guess if I can’t go to Oshkosh, I’ll try Green Bay or Fond du Lac or Madison or whatever. And that’s not an unrealiytic goal by the way. I think Oshkosh can become the best undergraduate study center in Wisconsin in five years.” Robert Birnbaum brings to
0 Oshkosh a new freshness and drive the campus has not seen in a long time. He has an optimistic outlook on things whicn is invigorating and his enthusiasm is contagious. You meet the man
and you go away feeling you can change the world.
Perhaps it is not possible for all his ideas to become a part of the campus. But somehow, in the back of your head, after meeting
him, you know chancellor Birn-baum is going to try and just might succeed in reawakening UW-0 and shifting this university into high gear.
OUR NEVER ENDING SEARCH FOR TRUTH
A-T boggles interview
The I ast Quiver, in its never ending crusade to combat that insidious demon called ERROR, has,
through tireless and dogged investigation, again found that crafty beast lurking in the besmircned halls of Radford.
In the November 15 issue of our hallowed compatriot in journalism, the Advance-Titan, the statement was made that the new chancellor. Robert Birnbaum was a Frisbee champion at the University of Rochester in New York state.
The Last Quiver is now in the smug position to refute this despicable falsity. In an exclusive statement made to the Quiver, Chancellor Birnbaum said:
"I wasn’t the Frisbee champ at the University of Rochester. 1 was the four-wall handball doubles champ for four years and I was, I would say, a Frisbee player of some outstanding quality. But this is before a time when there were official tournaments. So I can’t claim to be the champ.”
There! It is done! The lie has been refuted, irrefutably!
This statement is on tape and is being guarded
day and night by four off duty Second Sun bouncers and the editor’s dog until newly named special investigator Archibald Cox can arrive in person to take over the investigation.
At this moment, the chairman of the journalism department. Dr. David Lippert, is contemplating what action will be taken to punish the perpetrator of this, the foulest of journalistic foo-fahs, when he is found. Dr. Lippert is now deciding which punishment is more appropriate: To have the criminal responsible sit on a stool in a corner of a Clow pit to mediate on the differences between a frisbee disc and a handball ball, or to have this blackguard write on a blackboard in Halsey, “I will not lie,” one thousand times in Sanskrit or in Doctor's prescription cursive- whichever may be more strenuous.
The I ast Quiver regrets having to swing its righteously holy editing pen, but such inaccurate reporting must be stamped out and the coverup exposed before it spreads like some grotesque infectious disease that cor. . . .
17THESE ARE THE REASONS FOR DECLINING ENROLLMENT...
ACCORDING TO UW-0 ADMINISTRATORS AND EDUCATORS
A shifting attitude toward higher education A bleak job market for college graduates Reduced pressure from the military draft Increased competition from smaller neighboring schools
Increased competition from larger, urban schools in the University of Wisconsin system
Seven years ago. the Wisconsin Coordinating Council for Higher Education optimistically projected that UW-0 enrollment would reach a record 15,100 students by 1974. Now. with the tareet date only one year away, UW-0 is struggling to maintain a student body of 9.400, and the school has lost 20 per cent of its enrollment since it peaked at 11,817 students in the 1971-72 school year.
What went wrong?
While UW-0 ana five other UW system regional campuses felt their second straight year of reduced enrollments this year, the UW system as a whole showed an increase of 1 per cent, buoyed by a 7 per cent jump at the Milwaukee campus, and a 3 per cent one at the parent Madison campus.
Two Oshkosh area UW schools. Green Bay and Fond du Lac, both showed increases. UW-Green Bay gained 36 students, raising enrollment at that school to 3,661.
UW-Fond du Lac, with the help of a substantial reduction in tuition fees, increased its enrollment 46 per cent to 729 students. Formerly a UW-0 branch campus, the Fond du Lac school is now a member of the 14-campus UW center system, which reported an overall increase of 10 per cent in enrollment this year.
What has happened to enrollment at the medium-sized campuses?
Increased enrollment at the two larger UW schools, Madison and Milwaukee, and at UW-O's neighboring schools may have had a significant effect on decreasing enrollment here, according to three UW-0 deans.
"One factor is the decision by the state of Wisconsin to develop so many campuses in this part of the state. . .
.. .And also the recent decision to lower the tuition at the Fond du Lac campus," said Arthur Darken, dean of the UW-0 College of Letters and Science.
“Because of the proliferation of new schools in this area, it is clear that UW-Green Bay and UWC-Fond du Lac could cut significantly into the growth of this campus," Darken warned.
David Bowman, dean of the UW-0 School of Education, concurred. "A corollary factor in what might be described as the overdevelopment of higher educational opportunity in Wisconsin is the double fee standard where students can enroll at extension centers or branch campuses for one or two years and transfer to UW-0 at
considerable less cost than pursuing all four years at UW-O,” he said.
According to Clifford Larson, dean of the UW-0 School of Business Administration, the two-year, freshman-sophomore campuses have not cut into enrollment in his school because most of the business courses offered at UW-0 are designed for juniors and seniors.
"We should never have gotten into the Center System, but we did. A lot of our decisions are based not on sound educational policy, but on political interests, and centers are really political in nature."
Larson said the move by the UW system to develop small Center System campuses throughout the state was designed to thwart a growing interest in the community college concept.
However, UW-0 enrollment reports do not support the contention that the Green Bay and Fond du Lac campuses are attracting students who would normally attend UW-O. Although UW-Green Bay has grown from a two-year school with an enrollment of 1,425 in 1968, to a0 I
four-year institution with a student body of 3,661 this year, UW-0 enrollment reports show that the number of Brown County students (UW-Green Bay’s home county) enrolling at UW-0 this year is ii'y jerthan it was in 1968. In fact, the number of Brown County students enrolling at UW-0 has varied only 11 students the past three years.
A similar and more puzzling situation has developed in Fond
du Lac County. The UW-Fond du Lac campus is one of two UW centers taking part in a three-year pilot project to encourage joint use of vocational-technical and UW center buildings and programs.
Aided by a significant reduction in semester tuition fees from $238 to $75. UWC-Fond du Lac gained 233 students this year. But the number of Fond du I ac County students enrolling at UW-0 this semester decreased by only 52, according to UW-0 enrollment reports.
UW President John C. Weaver said recently that a preliminary analysis indicated the increases in UW center system enrollment were based largely on first time enrollment of local students.
"It appears that by removing the economic barrier and lowering fees to the fee level paid for a vocational-technical education, the UW centers have attracted students who would otherwise not have attended either institution or any other state-supported campus,” Weaver said.
Equalizing fees throughout the merged Uw-system has helped the Madison and Milwaukee schools to the detriment of UW-0 and the smaller schools, Larson
But a check of college handbooks shows there has been little change in the differences between academic and student service fees charged at the larger and smaller schools since the
merger. In 1968, UW-Milwaukee and UW-Madison fees for the school year were $24 more than those charged at UW-O. This year, the two urban schools were charging freshmen applicants $15 more than UW-0.
Noting that UW-0 enrollment patterns had drawn heavily from Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, Larson said increased college costs were forcing urban students to enroll inschools nearer to home.
The migration of urban students back to urban colleges has been a large factor in the decline of UW-0 enrollment, according to enrollment reports.
Winneoago County has continued to supply about one-fourth of the students enrolling at UW-0, but this semester, Outagamie County replaced Milwaukee County as the second-best UW-0 recruiting county. Milwaukee County, which had supplied a record 1,443 students in 1968, supplied 873 students this year. In addition, this year’s registration of Milwaukee County freshmen was less than half the number registered here in 1968.
Coupled with a decrease of 12 per cent in Waukesha County enrollment at UW-0 this year, and the 7 per cent increase in enrollment reported at UW-Milwaukee. indications are that urban Milwaukee students are beginning their education closer to home.
Each of the three UW-0 deans pointed out that there were many
reasons for declining enrollment at UW-0 and at otner colleges throughout the nation, and tnat often times each prospective college student had to weigh several factors before making a final decision to attend college.
Somewhere in the middle of the interview, Dean Arthur Darken leaned back in his chair, rolled a penefl around in his hands momentarily, and then glanced out of his elongated office window at the drizzly, gray autumn day. Not a hint of sunshine there.
He paused, then returned to sorting out the reasons for UW-O’s equally dreary enrollment record for the past two years. Not a hint of sunshine there either.
The forecast, at best, was partly cloudy.
“I don’t think anyone is in a good position to talk with confidence about what enrollment will be," Darken admitted. “There are too many factors...too many things we can’t control."
“The overall state of the economy has caused people to think of college in different ways," said Darken, dean of the UW-0 College of Letters and Science, a school which lost over 300 students this year.
"There is now a feeling among students that a college education might not be required for much of the job market," he added.
Dean David Bowman, whose School of Education suffered the largest enrollment loss among UW-0 schools this semester, nearly 600 students, and has reported enrollment downfalls in each of the past four years, said enrollment decreases in the School of Education are "primarily a reflection of fewer entering freshmen. Retention rates have remained high, in fact, the retention rate for the School of Education is considerably higher than that of the University as a whole."
“Much publicity has been given to the oversupplv of adults prepared to teach. Bowman said. “Undoubtedly this has contributed to declining enrollments in teacher education throughout the nation."
Business Administration reported a loss of 50 students this semester. Dean Clifford Larson pointed out that undergraduate

Undergraduate enrollment at the four UW-O schools reflects growing concern among students about overcrowded job markets in education and the sciences. A renewed demand for teachers would cure most of UW-O's enrollment ills.
Enrollment Picture by School
Letters and Science figures include those students who have not declared a major field of study.
business student credit hours were up 5 per cent.
If there still is a magic carpet, it appears that a School of Nursing degree is needed to power it. According to Roger Westphal, assistant director of the UW-0 placement office, all of the Nursing School graduates who seek jobs find them.
The School of Nursing was the only UW-0 undergraduate school to report an enrollment increase this semester.
According to Darken, a study of Letters and Science students who did not return for last fall's semester showed that approximately one-fourth of them dropped out for financial reasons. Many indicated a willingness to return as soon as their financial status improved. Darken said.
Others had only a vague idea of what their college and career goals were, said Darken. He cited the rising number of students who choose not to declare a major field of study as an indication of the unsureness and uneasiness of many students.
A similar study compiled by the UW-0 Office of Institutional Research corroborated Darken's figures. The soon to be published study containing a sample of 234 UW-0 students who did not return last year, lists insufficient funds as the primary reason most students dropped out, followed by boredom or dissatisfaction with educational experiences, and an uncertain need for a college degree.
Nearly a third of the respondents said they planned to return; another third said they were undecided; while the remaining third said they had no plans to return. Half of the respondents had found jobs.
"Spending money on an education is a gamble," the report concludes. "The current status of the job market makes the odds even worse because now the student doesn’t even know if he will find a job. Any effort aimed toward reducing the odds-by making the students aware of the happenings in various fields and thereby enabling him or her to get the jump on changes -promises to do a lot toward eliminating both the boredom, dissatisfaction and uncertainty about the need for, or the worth of the degree. . . ," the report recommends.
Another reason often given by educators for reduced college enrollment, and repeated by both Darken and Bowman, is that male students no longer have to make a choice between campus and battlefield.
But UW-0 enrollment reports indicate that the role played by the military draft in boosting war-time enrollments may have been overestimated.
During the past six years, male enrollment at UW-0 has not fluctuated more than 2 per cent, and the variations seem to have no direct relation to changes in the draft laws, the initiation of the draft lottery in 1969, and the abolishment of the draft in 1973.
UW-Fond du Lac and Ripon College enrollment reports do show decreases in male enrollment since 1968, however. Male enrollment dropped from 61 per cent in 1968 to 57 per cent this year at both campuses.
A surprising and unexplained factor at UW-0 has been the loss of more than 400 women students this year. During the past six years, the number of women enrolled had vacillated no more than 150 students.
The case of the phantom freshmen has been stumping educators everywhere. UW-0 new freshmen enrollment has dropped 38 per cent during the past six years, with a 13 per cent decrease reported since last year. Waning freshmen enrollments recorded in previous years are beginning to effect upperclass enrollments.
"Stopping out," or postponing entrance into college in order to travel or obtain work experience has also been mentioned by many national educators as a reason for declining enrollments.
Although the state’s 18-year-old pool will continue to increase beyond 1973 through 1978 at an average annual rate of 1 per cent, the pool will begin to dry up in the 1980’s. According to 1970 census figures, by 1988 there could be nearly 20 per cent fewer 18-year-olds than tnere were this year.
That will mean increased competition for prospective students among four-year private and public colleges.
Shocked at seeing 1972 enrollment fall 1,000 students short of projected enrollment after steady yearly gains for nearly two decades, UW-0 forecasters conservatively revised estimates downward this year. And still missed.
According to UW-0 Registrar Arthur Lehman, the original estimate for the 1973-74 school year was 10,875 students. After preprogramming last May showed that fewer continuing students were planning to return to UW-0 in the fall, Lehman said estimates were reduced to between 10,250 and 10,450. Actual registration was 10,415.
According to Allan P. Abell, senior staff associate of the UW analysis services and information systems, UW-0 enrollment for next year had been projected at 11,179 students. However. Abell said. "In light of preliminary enrollments this fall it appears that the Oshkosh projection is somewhat high ana will be up dated."
Meanwhile, .area Vocational, Technical and Adult Education Schools (VTAE) have been revising enrollment estimates upward.
Next: Vocational and technical training.
Has it affected UW-O enrollment?
Editor’s Note: Printed with permission of the Oshkosh Advance-Titan.
His mission: to promote his revolutionary belief that earth has positively been visited by astronauts from another planet.
The 38-year-old author of Chariots of the Gods believes our ancestors have left us valuable clues pertaining to their arrival and visitation.
“I believe the books written by our ancestors have spread circumstantial evidence on purpose for later generations to read," he said.
The Bible, he said, gives us countless, detailed descriptions of such visits. One such incident, described by the prophet Ezekiel, concerned the landing of what von Daniken is sure was a space vehicle.
The vehicle, reconstructed by artists from the description, “looks like a child’s toy top. With a little imagination, we can see the precise locations of the nuclear reactor and its cooler," he said.
Ezekiel also described a four-legged creature in the vehicle. Von Daniken’s explanation? What he obviously saw, was some sort of helicopter.
To help illustrate his theories, von Daniken called upon the audience to imagine they were in a space snip in the year 2100, headed for some distant planet. "What would happen if there was intelligent life there?" he asked. "What would they think of our doings?"
He answered his own question by saying the inhabitants would probably be shocked to see us and our assorted gadgetry.
“Seen through tne eyes of these peoples, the astronauts would have to seem like gods.’' he said.
After the earthlings departure: “They will talk
about the visit from the gods. They will blow it up a little. The next generation will blow it up more, and so on."
Von Daniken explained they would blow up the visit bit by bit in order to rationally understand it. Consequently, these stories from the past will eventually form the basis for religious rites, von Daniken believes.
In an attempt to muster a laugh from the audience, von Daniken mentioned that the Old Testament is full of passages that describe God crashing to the ground. "God,” he said, “always crashes."
But he said the "true god" would surely not make such clumsy entrances.
"The true god has to be timeless. These crashes were probably space ships that crash landed," he said.
As other examples of hints left by our ancestors, he mentioned cave drawings that are found all over the world. These drawings, he said, often picture helmeted beings. “Always gods with nelmets," he said.
He asked laughingly. "How should we explain these things- just forget about them? We must consider these things psychologically."
He thought it ridiculous to assume that the cave dwellers, (those “mere savages"), would have been able to draw such stange creatures without actually seeing them. “How is a caveman able to sketch such strange creatures?" he asked.
Von Daniken said the cave dwellers surely didn't eat hallucinogenic mushrooms and to into stupors before drawing the creatures. He firmly believes the cave men saw the astronauts, then sketched them.

LaHue’s presentation began with definitions of the basic terms of the occult. The term witch comes from the German word uricce which means a wise person. Witchcraft is the oldest religion in the world.
“The contemporary image of a witch having the lone pointed nose and warts is essentially fiction," said LaHue. He said, however, that the broom did have special importance in the occult. At first, witches met in wooded areas to keep their ceremonies secret. They dressed in black to hide in the shadows of trees when danger approached. Prior to the ceremony, a circle would be drawn around the area with a broomstick. This, they felt, would serve as a barrier against evil forces. At the end of the ceremony, the circle would be erased with a broom.
Witchcraft is an oral tradition, never having been written down. There are five areas of witchcraft, which include music, dance, medicine, agriculture, and astronomy. The basis of these areas, according to LaHue, is magic. Magic as .defined by LaHue is the art and science of making things happen the way you want. White magic benefits the whole, black magic benefits the self.
LaHue said that man watched things in everyday life and adapted the same principles to his life. For example, in the study of medicine, man watched what animals ate for specific illnesses. If it worked for animals, why wouldn’t it work for man? LaHue said that one should give the body a substance it can use itself.
LaHue said that the occult was looking for a strong, peaceful and ethical society. Yet as long as there is injustice in the world, the robe worn will be black.
27The press is also a major villain. He said that the news media is going through painful times, yet criticism the public doles out to them is justified. Kilpatrick noted that there is an over abundance of advocacy journalism and that "bad news is obsessant and obsessive." "We in the press have to work to restore people’s confidence with fairness, objectivity and comprehensiveness."
The third ingredient combining to create the confidence crisis is the hierarchy of government echelons. He stated. "My theory is that government has promised too much." Kilpatrick posed the question as to what would happen if politicians running for office would deal honestly with people-admitting that they couldn’t solve all of the world’s problems. In this atmosphere, disillusionment would never exist, he believes.
Even though the native Oklahoman pointed out gloomy detail after detail, he reaffirmed his conviction that America is strong enough to pull itself out of this mass emotional depression by its bootstraps. "We must try to cultivate the sense of community and belonging. It will be the first of a series of links on a chain that ends with love of all mankind. . .It isn’t impossible." n
There may not be an energy crisis, but according to columnist James Kilpatrick, there is "a crisis of diminishing confidence’ in America.
Kilpatrick, nationally syndicated writer of "A Conservative View." spoke before a Reeve Union audience on Jan. 16. as part of the OSA Speaker Series.
His speech centered around a Harris Poll survey. The survey concluded that the American public has the greatest amount of faith in the local garbage man and the medical practitioner. The top employee in the White House netted the rock-bottom confidence percentage. The media, colleges, military organizations, religious groups, the House, Senate and local governments were tabulated in the mid-ranges.
How could a nation built on far-reaching dreams and optimism fall to disenchantment and disillusionment? Kilpatrick surmises that the confidence crisis is due mainly to the fact that too much has happened in a short span of time. This cultural lag is not a coincidence. It has put people in a predicted state of shock to which they must readjust their thinking and lifestyles.
Kilpatrick suggested that even thoueh business and industry have suffered from "Uncle Sam Melancholia," he thinks they are a source of blame for the confidence mess. He based his premise on the decline in workmanship quality with near planned-obsolescence of most manufactured items. Kilpatrick added that negativism in the area of environmental protection and profit-seeking were also strong factors inducing the present situation. He believes that only a revision and revitalization of these enterprises can restore the public’s faith.be smuggled out and sold.
“If we can have political accidents, why can’t we have biological accidents." he said. "If their opium is so good, destroy their food crop and let them live on the opium." he said.
As a solution, Cambridge suggests a reorganization of priorities.
"When junkies die, they become an embarrassment to their friends.. .they’re thrown into the street, like garbage," he said.
To respond to the problem, Cambridge believes everyone must do their share. ‘Many kids don’t know what they’re doing and their parents don’t know either,’ he said.
He then cited some deterrent forces to the drug increase such as the heroin hotline-toll free 800-368-5365, writing to senators about ceasing aid to drug manufacturing countries, a movement by parents to boycott drug-shipping countries and the organization of TIP programs (turn in a pusher) in each state.
“Even the more acceptable drugs can have adverse effects. I’m harder on marijuana now than I was during the making of the film. . .you don’t know what you’re buying or what the stuff is laced with," he said.
In conclusion, he said it’s partly our fault "cause we haven’t enforced protection against them (drugs), let’s solve social issues rather than drowning them in legal dope such as methadone."
He said, "Only you have the way of solving and finding your own salvation. I don’t know where you go from here."

Hypocrisy is, according to Cambridge, the major obstacle to overcome if we are going to deal effectively with the drug problem facing us. He believes you cannot successfully enforce any tyDe of anti-drug program if exceptions are made for the existence of legalized drugs. "Drug use is a new kind of candy.. .it’ dynamite and it s killing a lot of people," he said.
To dramatize his point, Cambridge showed a half-hour film he had produced and directed as an attempt to counteract the number of “guilt expiation films" which are generally made about drugs.
Tne film called “Dead is Dead" displayed the prominence and effects of the drug culture. It was narrated by Cambridge.
He showed the falsity of a statement by Robert Dupont of the President’s Office on Drug Abuse who said they are "turning the corner on drug abuse in America."
"Every time I turn a corner. I find another kind of junkie," he said. "What we really have in this country, he said, is a new state of conspiracy.. .by their own actions, they (government) don’t want to solve the problems."
For the most powerful nation on earth, he said, we’ve been losing steadily throughout the century in the area of drug prevention.
Cambridge related an event of a few years ago in which the U.S. unsuccessfully attempted to halt the sale of Turkey’s opium to this country by buying up three and a half million dollars worth. Of this amount, two and a half million managed to

Sean O’Casey was one of Ireland’s most controversial playwrights. His plays dealt with the struggling laboring class in some of Ireland’s poorest ghettos and how they had to work so hard for so little. The UW-0 Theatre Department’s production of O’Casey's JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK held true to the spirit of the times and was the first tragedy to be presented in the 73 74 season.
JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK is the story of the Boyle family and their struggle for survival in an impoverished Ireland of 1922. shortly after the bloody Easter Uprising. Set in a Catholic ghetto in Dublin, the family consists of “Captain" Jack Boyle, a drunk who fancies himself a former sea captain but has never been to sea; Juno Boyle, the wile who must carry the whole weight of the family on her shoulders; a son, Johnny, who lost an arm to the Black and Tans on Easter Sunday; and Mary, the daughter, who is left pregnant by her suitor. Seen together, their condition epitomizes the troubles facing poor Irish Catholics in the 1920’s.
Of all the performances in the play, Mary Jo Bannon’s interpretation of Juno was one of the best seen on campus in a long time. Acquiring a convincing Irish brogue, she filled the character with all the warmth and tenderness that could be found in a woman with such heavy responsibility. Bannon filled Juno with a pathos and sense of humor needed to carry on under such stress.
The other outstanding characterization was Richard Nebel's "Joxer’’ Daly, "Captain" Jack’s drinking companion. "Joxer” was the typical Irishman, whether drinking, laughing or dispensing with a proverb. He was always at loggerheads
with Juno; the two characters formed a striking contrast to one another.
The set, designed by Norman Lewis, utilized several levels of dimension, giving a realistic air to the production. There were two horizontal levels, the living room of the Boyles and an adjoining hallway, allowing for two separate actions to occur at the same time. The set was given depth by the rooftops and the church steeple that formed the immediate background to the Boyle apartment. This provided for a chilling effect when two Irish "irregulars" crawled across the rooftop just •outside the apartment window in order to take Johnny by surprise.
The tragedy of JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK is the inability of the family members to better their situation. By the first' intermission, “Captain" Jack, upon receiving an inheritance, has decided to get a job and renounce his former ways. But by the play’s end he has lost the inheritance, gone deeply into debt and is stumbling drunk with his friend "Joxer." He is unaware that his son has just been found murdered. He babbles ignorantly about the state the world is in and then collapses in the hallway.
It is up to Juno to carry on. She. with Mary and the unborn baby, all that is left of the family, leave the apartment for one last time on their way to claim Johnny’s body. Juno’s only wish is that through the baby they can begin a new life.
35THE AMOROUS FLEA
A MUSICAL ADAPTION OF MOLIERE'S-THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES
The 17th century French playwright Moliere was probably one of the most delightful in his craft ever to create a character. His talent for representing the foibles of the human character in a nighly humorous manner remain unsurpassed. THE AMOROUS FLEA, a musical adaptation of his comedy THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES, lived up to it’s hilarious predicessors.
Arnolphe (Ricnard Nebel) chose his wife when she was only eight and hid her away in a convent in order that he might mold her into the perfect spouse without having to contend with other suitors. Yet after having come of age and been removed to Arnolphe’s heavily fortified home, the fair Agnes (Adrienne Baloun) met by chance the dashing and handsome Horace (Tarn Magnuson). It is. of course, love at first sight. It remains only for Horace to spirit his lady away but his only confidant is Arnolphe himself. Knowing the lovers plans. Arnolphe makes it nearly impossible for the two to execute them. But of course all is resolved in Moliere’s typical turnabout style.
The music and lyrics created by Jerry Devine and Bruce Montgomery are especially well suited for the contents of the play. In addition to the expected love songs, a delightful selection of humorous numbers greatly enhance the production. The highlight of these is definitely
"There Goes A Mad Old Man." a hilarious commentary on Arnolphe and his characteristics by his two servants. Alain (James August Pabian) and Georgette (Curry Meredith), who do a great deal more than merely convey the song to the audience. Without their strong performances much of the humor would not have come across.
Characteristic to most of Moliere’s works is a single dominating male character whose actions dictate the course of the play. In THE AMOROUS FLEA it is in the personification of Arnolphe and one wonders what the theatre department would have done if Richard Nebel had not been available. As the cranky and conniving old reprobate Nebel gave a stunning performance. After his fine characterization as Joxer, the meddling busybody in JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK. his Arnolphe proves him more than adequate actor of exceptional quality.
In fact the entire production, with the exception of the rather stylized sets, was excellent. Looking like a cross between a shadow box and an illustration by J.R.R. Tolkien for his LORD OF THE RINGS series, the sets appeared rather vacant, lacking the spirit of the rest of the production. Fortunately for all concerned the distraction was minimal.THE AMOROUS FLEA a musical play by Jerry Devine Bruce Montgomery basea on Moliere's The School for Wives.

A World-W ide
Many well known folksongs have interesting origins. Often people recognize the tune and words, but are ignorant of how the song became woven into the fabric of American life. The authors of these songs are seldom known, except to the most ardent music lover. In the hall of fame of American folk music reside Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Elizabeth Cotton, and Huddie Ledbetter. These names do not assume household regularity, but perhaps the songs they wrote and sang will bring a smile to those who remember and still enjoy them.
For a start, how many can mention three rather well-known sones that were written by Huddie Ix dbetter? Probably the best known is "Goodnight Irene." Add to that "Kisses Stveeter than Wine" and "Old Cotton Fields at Home," and one has the beginnings of a good folk repertoire.
If the songs are familiar, perhaps a few words about the man and his personality will provide a background for them. Huddie Ledbetter sang his way out of a southern prison where he was serving time for murder. He was pardoned because the authorities felt it a shame to lock up the man and his music. Once free. Ledbetter went north, where the legend of his jail episode began to grow.
Ledbetter was called "Leadbelly" by his friends. He never made it big, since he died six months before his song ‘Goodnight Irene " sold two million copies and ballooned to the top of the hit parade. Until the last three years of his life, Leadbelly made barely more than a few dozen songs, and made only several radio appearances. But because of the recordings made, and because of the songs he rewrote or adapted into new forms, Ledbetter has come to be known as one of the greatest folk singers of this country.
Leadbelly was a black man, and many of his songs reflect the black experience. "Old Cotton Fields At Home" was probably written around 1941, although the circumstances under which it was written were not explained by Leadbelly.
When I was a little bitty baby My mother would rock me in the cradle In them old cotton fields at home
by tom wildermuth
Oh when them cotton balls get rotten You can't pick very much cotton In them old cotton fields at home It was down in Lou'siana Just about a mile from Texarkana In them old cotton fields at home.
Pete Seeger, a contemporary of Leadbelly, says that Huddie probably thought the song was one of his lesser efforts, having improvised it on the spot when someone might have asked him to sing about them "old cotton fields." From humble beginnings, the song has become a standard tune for most folk singing groups. It bears I eadbelly’s style of repeating the same couplet twice for each verse, and using the same refrain after each couplet. This, combined with the powerful rhythmic effect of the words, make it a song that is not easily forgotten.
If someone were to whistle or sine,"This Land is Your Land," most people would undoubtedly recognize the tune. Few could identify Woody Guthrie as its author. Guthrie is not known for his life accomplishments because he didn’t accomplish much in tne material sense of the word. He just wrote and sang what became great American folk songs.
Born in 1912, Woodrow Wilson Guthrie eventually wrote more than a thousand songs. Some were probably sung once and forgotten. Others have stood the test of time and rank as classics.
“This Land is Your Land" is one of his most famous songs.
This land is your land This land is my land.
From California to the New York Island From the redwood forests To the Gulf Stream waters.
This land xvas made for you and me.
38Guthrie was a drifter who made a living singing in saloons, at union meetings, parties, political rallies, and dances. Anything worth discussing or arguing about was worth a song to Woody Guthrie. Most of his songs were a reflection of what he saw along the countryside. He had the type of affection for America that can generate folksongs that are sung by succeeding generations. They are timeless.
Both Guthrie and Leadbelly had the ability to identify with the common man and woman. They spoke the language of ordinary people. For them, singing was a matter of diving into the situation, living it. and then writing a song about it.
The early folk songs of America are largely the songs of the working man. Often one can associate the characteristics of a song with the job to be done by analyzing rhythm and pauses. For example, lumberjacks had songs that allowed pauses at the end of certain lines, allowing the ax choppers to catch their breath. The woras of the song fit the rhythm of the muscular action, thereby providing the timing needed to keep the chopping motion smooth.
Although the rhythm and rhyme varied, most parts of the country had their distinctive work songs. The experience of Pennsylvania coal mining was brought out in Merle Travis' son , "Sixteen Tons." It was a life of physical hardship, and the struggle is undeniable when the song says, "Saint Peter don’t you call me cause 1 can't go, I owe my soul to the company store. " The song was made popular by Tennesee Ernie Ford.
On the east coast the "MTA Song" was written in 1948 as a protest against a proposed fare increase in the Boston Subway. The son , written by Bess Hawes, protested the possible system whereby the passenger paid one fare upon entering the suDway, and an additional fare on leaving. The Kingston Trio popularized the "MTA Song" from which these verses were taken.
Well let me tell of the story of the man named Charlie
On a tragic and fateful day He put ten cents in his pocket, kissed his wife and family
Went to ride on the MTA (chorus
Well did he ever return
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
He mau ride forever neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned.
Charlie handed in his dime at the Kendall Square Station And he changed for Jamaica Plain When he got there the conductor told him one more nickel
Charlie couldn’t get off that train, (chorus) Charlie's wife goes down to the Scollay Square Station
Every day at a quarter past two And through the open window she hands Charlie a sandwich.
As the train comes rumbling through, (chorus)
Pete Seeger tells this story how one folk song got its start. Her name was Elizabeth Cotton, and one day in a Washington D.C. department store she found a little girl wandering about. She returned the youngster to her mother, who happened to be Pete’s wife. She offered Elizabeth a job as cook, and the elderly lady accepted.
The Seeger children would make deals with Elizabeth. They volunteered to wash the dishes if she played the guitar. One of the songs she sang was, "Freight Train, Freight Train, Going So Fast." The song found a home not only in the hearts of the Seeger children, but throughout the world. Incidentally, Elizabeth was 12 years old when she wrote it.
A wealth of folk music has grown out of the black experience. Most of the plantation songs died when slavery was abolished. One song, however, has remained. It is entitled, "Michael Rowed the Boat Ashore."
Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah
Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah
It is believed the song came from the islands off the Georgia Sea Coast. Here slaves were brought from Africa to provide transportation from the islands to the mainland. The Negroes, with strength to row the boats, would sing as they worked. Boat crews from different plantations would pride themselves in making up new songs.
The river is deep atid the river is unde, Hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side. Hallelujah.
The lead man for one of the boats was thought to have been named Michael. Some think the men were also singing to the archangel Michael.
Beginning in the early 1950’s the folk song experienced a change in America. Songs were still descriptive, but they became instruments of change that helped to alter the lives of millions of people. The magnitude of change is most easily born out in the civil rights and peace movements.
"We Shall Overcome" was first a union song sung at a tobacco workers picket line in 1946. The song was discovered by some folk singers from the north, who added more verses. In the early days of the civil rights movement the song was sung at a sit-in in an all-white restaurant. Within a few months the song spread throughout the South, where it became the theme song for equal rights.
Recently anti-war people have used the folksong in a similar way. Although it is an example of brevity, the phrase, "All we are saying is give peace a chance" had a tremendous impact. The phrase was taken from a song by John Lennon, and first sung at the Moritorium march of 1969 by Pete Seeger and others.
Perhaps the history of America could be told through folksongs. The experience of people has been noted down in song since colonial times. Much of our musical heritage is collecting dust, deserving to be discovered and enjoyed again. This is the American folksong: experience put into words, and portraying the sweat and tears spent by the common man.

"Exorcism" comes from the Greek word "exorkizen" which means to free from or drive out evil spirits. The practice of this ancient art in the last 100 years has been limited mostly to the more primitive cultures throughout the world. Those reported cases that did occur in either Europe or the United States were usually kept quiet.
Freud and the other great thinkers of the 19th ceetury have taught us that the evil spirits were actually the result of mental or emotional disorders within the patient himself. “There were no such things as rampaging demons to plague mankind."
If you have not seen William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST, then you must be one of the few. In its first five weeks at 20 theatres throughout the country the film has grossed $10 million. Executives at Warner Brothers, who release the shocker, expect it to top the income from THE GODFATHER which, as the top moneymaker of all time, has already grossed over $155 million.
When I say THE EXORCIST it was one of those dreary afternoons that characterize Wisconsin winters. For a Monday in the middle of January it wasn't especially miserable, but it was far from the kind of day vou’d be enjoying yourself out of doors. Nevertheless I was caught in the middle of a waiting line that cost my friend and me 20 minutes of our afternoon.
Alternate groups of student-aged and older folk stamped their feet and clapped their hands to ward off the cold as they waited. Four students chattered loudly as they stood, carrying on about things in general but speaking frequently of their expectations for the afternoon's feature. One had heard about the crucifix sequence, but he was balked at by another who couldn't believe that they would show such an abomination.
In direct contrast was the middleaged man who waited quietly with his wife. With his hat pulled down to his ears and his hands jammed in his
pockets he minded his own business, looking back at me occasionally as if I knew something he didn't.
With out tickets finally purchased, we shuffled into the theatre lobby firmly clutching out $3,000 prizes. An expressionless usher tore them in half and thanked us. Ah. he must have thought, more victims.
The lobby was the same as I had seen it many times before, except for the line at the refreshment counter. Where had all these people come from? Didn't thev have to work or something? I could understand the number of students in the crowd. I was still two days away from registration myself. What surprised me was the number of civic function-type middleaged men and women present. Even before I saw the film I knew it wouldn't be one of those run-of-the-mill outings. I had spent the entire morning in anticipation, steeling myself for what I expected would be more an experience than an entertainment. And here were these women, dressed like they were on their way to an afternoon tea or fund-raising luncheon.
Four days before the Milwaukee Journal had run a report whose headline read something like. “20 People Faint, Vomit at ‘EXORCIST '. The bulk of report consisted of quotes from theatre employees regarding the reactions on the part of some patrons to the film's content. Twenty people had fainted, numerous others had walked out and there were instances of throwing up. It was a short article. Similar to any other report that would be filling column inches around the nation.
Or was it? Think about it- people fainting and vomiting! Men and women Hurrying from the theatre in anguish and despair! I could see a group of sad-eyed urchins huddled in a semi circle around their mother who, kneeling on the kitchen linoleum, wept and thanked God Above for protecting her family from so horrible a fate.That wasn’t just a report, it was an incredible piece of publicity. It was a direct challenge: "I saw THE EXORCIST and retained my sanity and my lunch. Can you?"
It hadn't attracted only the thrill seekers, but also the respected gentry from the affluent suburbs. A report like that can cause the same frantic reaction as might accompany word of a fatal train wreck, but here it was cranked up to such a psychological and emotional pitch that even the Silent Majority had fallen victim to it.
What little sun ther was made a valiant effort to stream through the lar e plate glass windows as stragglers finished their last minute cigarettes. The usual muted conversations seemed even more restrained than normal. I looked around and was surprised that there were no nurses or rescue teams. Oxygen tanks and stretchers were also markedly absent, as were the revolving lights of ambulances. The concession girls shoveled their popcorn with as little enthusiasm as ever, but the crowd still seemed possessed with a restless anticipation.
I settled in my seat three quarters of the way to the front, noting again how crowded the theatre was. The lights dimmed and I sat back.
Hmm. White letters on a black background. "William Peter Blatty’s THE EXORCIST.' That's a little austere, but not too bizarre. A few ma or credits. Now what’s this? “Northern Iraq. . .’
...I can feel the blood pounding in my ears now-over that obscure piece of classical music they’re using for the end credits. I’m not sure I want to get up just yet. Besides I want to see the credits. Yeah, the credits. . .
Out we went into the sunlight past the same dour-faced usher. He’s shooing us out a side door because there’s a massive crowd built up in the lobby for the 3:20 showing. The ones at the head of the group are craning their necks, looking for victims of the holocaust. Don’t crowd folks, the best is yet to come.
Out in the parking lot my friend finally made a noise.
“Well,” he said in a We’ll-open-this-program-up-to discussion type voice. I didn’t answer.
"That was something."
“Yeah. . ."
“That Friedkin is really something!"
“That was something."
“That Friedkin is really something!"
"Say. are you alright? You look a little pale.”
“Ah...theatre was stuffy...no circulation."
Across town in a quaintly decorated bar (one of Milwaukee’s “Big Four" German restaurants) it took one Old Fashion to calm my nerves and another to open the discussion. By the end of the fifth I was once again fearless. Unfortunately my calculations were off and by two A.M. I was stone cold sober and still awake, desperately trying to submerge myself in something- just anything to take my mind off what I had seen. I was more afraid to close my eyes and face my imagination than I was to stare at shadows. What’ll I do if I fall asleep and have a nightmare about that little beast? Jesus. I’ll go insane! Honestly, I’ll go back
to church tomorrow, but all I want now is some peaceful sleep.
The horrible characteristics that make THE EXORCIST so controversial are actually secondary to what has been scaring people half out of their minds. Everyone who has seen this film has probably seen Lon Chaney in the thoes of a full moon frenzy, transforming from the genial but tortured I arry Talbot to a frothing, snorting werewolf. I grew up with films like THE WOLFMAN and have been entertained by a menagerie of zombies, ghouls and even a devil or two. But it was never quite like this.
Never before had the subject of direct evil been treated so seriously and never was Satan of such menacing intent. The Prince of Evil has always manifested himself in the form of either a goatheaded spectre, as in the British film, THE DEVIL’S BRIDE, or a comical scalawag, like Walter Houston in ALL THAT MONEY CAN BUY.
Friedkin’s Satan has gone beyond the point of being just a good thrill, creating a mass hysteria that has affected the whole country.
A Chicago psychiatrist has reported six patients that have had severe side affects from tne film. Calls have been flooding in to clergymen all over the country from people who believe that either they or their children are victims of demonic possession. And then there was that recent exorcism in Daly City, California.
In the Feb. 11 issue of Newsweek, author Blatty was quoted as saying that his novel was a parable of good and evil and it shouldn’t have frightened anyone as much as it did.
"Do you know what I think has all those people--and they are mostly men, you know -shaking and fainting in that movie" said Blatty. “I think they are making the unconscious connection between that repulsive monstrosity on the screen and the moral evil in their own lives.”
THE EXORCIST has more critics than defenders and has no doubt turned more heads than any other film in a long time. Perhaps in this age. when society suffers from extreme anxiety, people need a jolt to awaken the long dormant scream that has been building up inside them. But has THE EXORCIST released that scream or driven it deeper? n

A revealing expose of authority in the University System
by greg madson
EDITORS NOTE: The Quiver welcomes opposing views to this article. Please address all replies to: Editor The I«ast Quiver Radford Basement University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Oshkosh. Wisconsin 54901
According to the objectives of this University as explained in the catalog given to incoming students. 'The University aims to educate all students it is authorized to serve, including adults, who show ability to profit from its instruction, by helping them to select, define, preserve, implement, and refine the ideals, skills, and other knowledges upon which our civilization rests. These include beliefs in the dignity and integrity of the individual, concern for the democratic processes and the obligations of citizenship, respect for wisdom and scholarship, the cultivation of self-discipline and inner resources, a comprehension of our cultural inheritance, and ability to apply the tools of truth, particularly those of science and of reason." Anyone who seriously believes that this University actually tries to achieve these objectives had better take a closer look at the Student Handbook, especially in the area of regulations and methods of student disciplinary procedures.
48The University does not recognize the dignity or integrity of individuals, has no concern for the democratic process (in fact, denies many democratic rights to students) and destroys our cultural inheritance through the use of rules and regulations not consistent with the ideas or ideals expressed in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or the Supreme Court. All tnis is done under a bureaucratic umbrella of administrators, known as the Board of Regents and Chancellors. These people, not answerable to electors, are given virtually unlimited power in that they have the "right to develop rules and regulations concerning the conduct of students and to take action regarding their behavior when it is deemed necessary." Power is legally granted (by State Statute 36.03) to these people as executives of a State Agency (The University of Wisconsin System).
The people who comprise the Board of Regents are appointed by the governor of the State and make the laws and by-laws to be enforced on the university campuses throughout the system. There are no Regents at this time from the city of Oshkosh, yet these people are responsible for the “guidelines” that every student on this campus must abide by. The Board also reserves the right, under section 7.10 of the by-laws,"to suspend the application of proxnsions of those guidelines ana take direct control of disciplinary proceedings at the State Universities or at a branch Campus or elsewhere in any case where the Board may deem such action appropriate." Also "these guidelines need not apply to action on account of failures or inadequacies in academic or scholastic achievement."
In other words, not only does the Board of Regents have the authority to make and enforce the laws, but also to change them to fit their needs whenever they find it appropriate.
When one body (of non-elected officials) can act as the legislative, executive and judicial power at the same time, it is nardly promoting "concern for the democratic process."
Chancellors also have a great deal of authority over the University community and are
given rights usually only afforded to a dictatorship. First, the Chancellor has the right to develop rules and regulations concerning the conduct of students and to take action regarding their behavior when it is deemed necessary. He is also "authorized to establish such additional rules and regulations for student conduct, consistent with the by-laws of the Board of Regents, as he may determine to be appropriate for the needs of the University." He can also suspend or expel students for misconduct, ana for such other causes as may be prescribed from time to time in these laws or suspend an accused student temporarily, pending prompt determination as to nis guilt. Therefore, the Chancellor can make laws when he deems "necessary" or "appropriate."
He can enforce these laws by expelling or suspending students. Or, according to State Statute 37.11, he can suspend a student "temporarily" before a trial is granted, "pending prompt determination of his auilt." These statutes not only violate Amendment 5 of the Constitution (due process of law), but also assume that the student will be found guilty. This is in direct conflict with the Students Rights in Disciplinary Proceedings, rule 6, which states a presumption of innocence shall be recognized.
While the University claims to be committed to full support of the constitutional rights of its students, including due process in student disciplinary matters, the Chancellor is given totalitarian power in that he can act as law maker, judge and jury in all disciplinary actions, and other matters relating to the University. This is not showing respect lor the dignity or integrity of individuals and is not showing concern for the democratic process or a comprehension of our cultural heritage.
University students are perhaps the only group of people who pay thousand of dollars each year to an institution that can violate any and all rights afforded to the rest of the citizens of the U.S. When questioned about this, there is the inevitable answer, "If you don’t want to follow the rules, don't join the
While the University has a “legal" right to make such rules, it is interesting that an institution, claiming to be the stronghold of democratic principles of free thinking and expression, finds it necessary to deprive it’s students of basic democratic rights and freedoms.
Because it is primarily supported through public funds appropriated by the legislature of the State, all University rules are sanctioned by the State. However, enforcement of many of these rules violate the citizens rights that have been judicially recognized as rights secured by the Constitution. Some of the worst violations are in the areas of disciplinary and housing policies of this University.
One will notice upon examining the diagram of disciplinary action that after the service of charges and statement by the student, disciplinary action may be taken, including any punishment except suspension, without a hearing of any kind. This is an obvious violation of due process. The chancellor may also decide to "temporarily suspend" a student pending a hearing, another infringement of due process and violation of habeas corpus. If a request for a hearing is not made in 10 days, the student can be found guilty of charges and the Chancellor may expel, suspend or impose any other punishment he deems necessary. This prima facie charge can also be used if the student does not attend the hearing. Both violate due process and point 6 of the Student Rights in Disciplinary Proceedings. The student is allowed to have counsel at the hearing but must provide for it at his own expense. If the student cannot afford a lawyer, this is a violation of Amendment 6 of the U.S. Constitution (right to counsel). We were the only campus_ in the University system to have an attorney on campus for students.
After the trial, the Chancellor, who need not attend the proceedings, may make his decisions on the basis of a transcript only or on a summary by the Hearing Examiner if exceptions are not filed within ten days after the summary is served. This is another possible violation of due process. Ac-

51cording to the hand-book entitled, You and Your Residence Hall, the "Judicial Board will give consideration to, but not necessarily grant"a public hearing. However in the UW-0 Student Handbook, you are given a public trial unless a request is submitted fof a
Private one. Either the diversity can’t make up it’s mind or it has recently discovered that they have to grant a public trial by State Statutes.
The statement of rights in the UW-0 Student Handbook states that all disciplinary decisions may be appealed to the next highest individual or body. However, it also states that the decision of the Chancellor is final unless the Board of Regents decides to review the case. Apparently the Chancellor is the Supreme Individual or Body, which in fact makes him dictator. The Handbook also states that if a student requests a hearing on charges, the matter will be referred to the University Student Court (except for cases involving the possibility of suspension). However, then it turns around and states that one of the sanctions that may be imposed for cheating or plagiarism is suspension from the University. Actually, if the Chancellor wishes, any case could involve the “possibility of suspension" and therefore wouldn't go to the Student Court. Not only doesn’t your case have to go to the Student Court, but it can be decided by a hearing agent selected by the Board of Regents Office from persons outside the University community. This is a possible violation of Amendment 6 (impartial jury of the State and district where the crime shall have been committed).
Again we see that while students are expected to follow federal, state and local laws, the University is not subject to even our most fundamental laws, under the Constitution, and, in fact, infringes on many of the rights guaranteed by that document. Is this the way to teach "concern for the democratic processes" and "obligations of citizenship?"
A flagrant violation of basic rights can be seen in the University Housing Rules. Besides the issue of forcing adults to live in University Residence Halls, which is supposedly done
to protect the educational purpose and interests of the stuaent body, there are dozens of other rules infringing on the constitutional rights of individuals imposed by tne .University.
As stated in the publication You and Your Residence HalL The University as landlord retains the right to enter student rooms for maintenance purposes. Whenever possible, students will be notified 24 hours in advance before entry.
First, what is a "maintenance purpose?” This could mean anything from checking the heat ducts to tightening a screw in a desk. The advance warning does not indicate how hard maintenance men must try to give notice before it is deemes not possible. This is a possible violation of the 4th Amendment (unreasonable searches and seizures). Housing staff may also enter your room on any excuse “relating to matters of comfort or safety" of fellow residents. This too can include almost anything. If someone wants to search your room, they can declare "emergency circumstances relating to danger of life, safety, health or property and get authorization to enter and search from the Chancellor." If you file a work-order to get something fixed, the maintenance crew has an open door to your room anvtime it wants.
Firearms are illegal in dorms which is a direct violation of the 2nd Amendment (right to bear arms). "The possession or consumption of alcoholic beveraaes greater than 5 per cent alcohol by weight m a university residence hall is prohibited. ” This rule is in direct conflict with the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th or Prohibition Amendment.
Many regulations governing dorm rooms are unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment. There are rules making it illegal and punishable to possess and use candles, heating devices, live tree branches, road signs, and refrigerators over two cubic feet in capacity. Certainly this is a denial of liberty and property without due process of law.
The University also tells the student when he may have visitors and when they may stay overnight. The supposed reasoning for this "tnsitation" policy is that togetherness beyond the number of hours granted is considered cohabitation under Wisconsin State
Law. Wisconsin Statutes dealing with lewd and lascivious behavior define co-habitation as when someone openly cohabits and associates with a person he knows is not his spouse under circumstances that imply sexual intercourse. The University, by setting the "tnsitation" hours is assuming that being with another person 14 hours does not imply sexual intercourse but being together 24 hours does. This assumption is questionable to say the least.
Finally, the University can take disciplinary action for moving furniture, screens, or posting "unauthorized material" on dorm bulletin boards. This not only abridges the due process of law. but lets the University act as censor to what may and may not be seen-a direct violation of the First Amendment, guaranteeing freedom of speech and the press.
Students living off-campus now sigh with relief over not having such rigid and possibly unconstitutional laws forced on them. Still, they are not free to exercise their rights as individuals either. The University firmly states (under Sec. 7.10 of the Board of Regents by-laws) that violations of such laws, bylaws, rules and regulations oc-curing off-campus which are likely to have an adverse effect on the University or educational process carried on at the University are termed “misconduct" and subject to disciplinary actions by the University. It is doubtful that the University is going to go out of its way to hassle students off campus, so it leaves most of the policing power to local authorities.
There is no effective way to protect yourself or your rights in this System. When you join this "agency"you are forfeiting rights and legal protections to the agency. It is all "leaal" under Wisconsin I aw and “democratic" according to the University.
What this all comes down to is this: take care not to get busted by the University. At least if you’re summoned by the local or state authorities, you will retain the rights of U.S. citizenship taught by this institution.
A Look at Oshkosh s Day Cane Centers
by barb cherry
UW-O’s University Day Care Center, located in the basement of the Newman Center, is a significantly lower costing day care center when compared with the commercially-run Oshkosh Day Care Center at 631 W. Fourth Ave.
Fees are based on a daily rate at the University Day Care Center. The cost is $.80 for a half-day (4 V hours or less) and $.60 for a half-day for each additional child in the same family. Full day rates are $1.50 for the first child and $1.30 for each additional child. There is no charge if a child does not attend on a given day because of sickness, a doctor’s appointment, etc.
An initial registration fee of $20 is required by the Oshkosh Day Care Center. Fees are based on weekly rates. The full day rate (six hours or more) is $20 a week for each child. This rate also includes children who are enrolled for less than six hours, but attend before and after noon. i.e. 9:30 a.m. until 3p.m. or 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. The half-day rate is $13 a week. No refunds are made if the child does not attend on any day.
In January, 1972 the University Day Care Center opened after a long search for an adequate .building and adequate funding. The Reverend Robert Thompson of the Catholic Campus Ministry offered the lower level of the Newman Center. The 1971 Senior Class Steering Committee granted $1,000 to equip the center. That Spring, the Allocations Committee approved a budget of $4,000 to cover operational costs.
Tne center’s purpose was and is “to provide low-cost quality day care for children of UW-O. students, so their parents may carry on their education.’’ Priority is given to children of students who are receiving financial aid from the university. Children must be between six months and six years, and at least one parent must be a UW-0 student. The age range for the Oshkosh Day Care Center is from 18-months to five years.
All day care children are required by the state to have medical examinations prior to enrollment.
Hours for the University Day Care Center are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. These times may be re scheduled during exam periods. The Oshkosh Day Care Center is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
In these times of low eas supplies the small gas station is becoming a thing of the past.
Remember when you pulled into a small two pump station and asked the old timer to "fill her up" and he also washed the windows and checked the oil? If you were down a quart, instead of pulling a can off the rack he went inside and pumped the oil from a storage tank into a quart bottle.
Those days are over now, except in a few farm towns where the old-timer still sits out front with his dog.
If you ever happen across one of these pages
from the past, take a good look around and enjoy the service. Have yourself a soda pop from the machine by the front door, pet the dog and relax, and contemplate when life was just this way.
When you’ve had your fill of pop and gas, climb back into your car and drive off, but remember the gas station and the old man and his dog. Remember how it felt to sit there and what you saw around you. Remember well because next time you go looking for such a place, you probably won’t be able to find one. All that will remain is what you remember, and an empty lot where that gas station once stood.

Dave Van Duser. a three-time UW-0 letterman, has come a long way with his wrestling career.
With only a friend's encouragement and a high school public address announcement, the six-foot, 177-pounder began his wrestling career.
"I was sitting in homeroom, just as the football season was ending, when an announcement about the sophomore wrestling signup came over the P.A.,” he explained.
“I didn’t like wrestling at first. It was much harder than any other sport,” said Van Duser. “But, it is such a challenge," he added with a glint of pride and satisfaction.
A former tri-captain of the UW-0 wrestling team. Van Duser placed fourth in the Wisconsin
State University Conference (WSUC) last year. He also was named Most-Dedicated Wrestler of the 72-73 season by his teammates and Coach Thomas Eitter.
Van Duser attributes most of his success in wrestling to discipline.
“The whole thing is discipline," he emphasized. "You have to push yourself all the time. A guy who is really striving and dedicated puts in more time and effort."
Each wrestler puts in a grueling two-hour workout each day during which he practices wrestling techniques. Van Duser said that the wrestler who is dedicated and determined will put in an extra half hour or more of practice eacn day.
59“You have to be aggressive when you wrestle,” Van Duser said "Every time you go out on the mat you have to have confidence in yourself and go out to win." He described wrestling as "a sport in which on the mat you’re competing individually, but it’s the total team effort that creates wins."
Weight is especially important in wrestling, for each wrestler participates in a weight class. The members of each team are weighed prior to the beginning of each match. If at weigh-in a wrestler is over his weight category he must forfeit the match to his opponent.
Van Duser believes disciplining one’s self to a proper diet is the key to keeping a stabilized weight. During the wrestling season he also increases his amount of rest, while maintaining his vitamin and mineral intake.
Help from fellow mat-men is another important aspect of wrestling discipline.
“Teammates are a lot of help to you,” said Van Duser. "They’re pushing you and you’re pushing them. The team is closely knit," he added.
There is little doubt about the team closeness Van Duser talks about. This year he lives off-campus with teammates Dan Mussin and Gary Brundirks, with whom he usually works out.
Van Duser laughingly asked tnis reporter if I had seen the wrestlers’ “The Dirty Tnirteen" t-shirt. When I said I had seen them displayed on two fellow mat men, Van Duser replied with a chuckle, “yea, that’s who we are, and our number is growing this year."
Now a senior and physical education major, Van Duser said his greatest goal is to become a National Association Intercollegiate Athletic (NAIA) champ.
For his future plans Van Duser would like to coach wrestling. He believes there are iobs for those who are qualified. And with his background he could just “take one down."
_ m WHAT'S HAPPENING IN • WOMEN'S INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS
Spring marks the beginning and end for several sports in women’s intercollegiate athletics.
The next few weeks terminate the seasons for badminton and basketball. The badminton team will be competing in the state meet at Platteville on March 15 and 16. The basketball season will have been completed a week earlier with the state meet at Madison.
The tournament held in Madison will be a difficult challenge for the female Titans in that to qualify they have to have one of the two best records in the area. Last year’s team not only qualified, but placed second in the state.
The badminton team is lead by Barb Hall, a transfer student
from Green Bay. She provides the nucleus to what coach Helen Briwa calls "a much improved team.’’
The women’s track team will be out to capture a conference title that just narrowly escaped their ejasp last year, finishing second in tne state. Coach Briwa is extremely optimistic about this team.
Briwa said that last year’s second place finish to LaCrosse could be attributed to individual defeats of Titans by the other schools. These schools did not defeat I aCrosse on an individual basis and the end result was I aCrosse, first, and Oshkosh, second.
Briwa said that shw expects 40-50 girls to come out for tne team.
She noted that the majority of girls who come out are not physical education majors, but girls just interested in track and field.
The schedule for the meets have not been finalized, but the following dates are tentatively set for meets:
Tuesday March 19 at Carroll College (UW-O. UW-M, Carroll) Saturday March 23 at Madison (UW-LaCrosse, UW-Madison, UW-O)
Tuesday April 23 at Stevens Point (UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stevens Point, UW-O)
Sunday April 28 at LaCrosse (UW-LaCrosse, UW-Platteville, UW-O)
Saturday May 4 State meet at Eau Claire
RELEASE TIME PLAGUES TEAM COACHES
FTE, credit hour totals, release time.
These terms are being bandied about in the men's and women’s physical education departments in an attempt to resolve the problems confronting them.
Release time is the term needed to understand the dilemma. It is the time allowed for a coach to coach his or her respective sport. In the women’s department there are three coaches to coach seven sports over the school year. Simple math says that each of the coaches will have to coach a minimum of two sports for each of the three seasons. With such a requirement, a considerable amount of release time is needed.
Another term is credit hour totals. Each instructor is required to produce a certain amount of credit hours for each student. Some departments can easily fulfill this requirement by having large lecture groups of a
few hundred students. This cuts dow'n on the number of sections needed to be taught.
The problem the phy. ed. department has is that tne nature of the field and the facilities do not permit such a large group of students. As a result, an increased number of classes have to .be held, and each instructor is responsible for more sections. Less time then, is available for
An additional problem arises in the number of credit hours required. The physical education department is under the school of letters and science. They have a certain amount of credit hours required. Phy-ed majors are in the school of education, which has a different number of credit hours required.
These problems have been
partially solved through the use of FTE. FTE means Full Time Equivalent. That is, the two phy. ed. departments are allotted the equivalent of a full time faculty M' member to assist in the department. The problem occurs in the number of FTEs allocated. The men's department is allowed seven, and the women’s is allocated .75 for intercollegiate and .25 for intramurals, for a total of one.
Dr. Helen Briwa of the women’s department said, "We don’t want our department to be as big as theirs (men’s).” She stated that if they had the money, they could get more FTE, but she didn't know where to get the qualified people to coach. She cited several members of the department that just don’t want to coach anymore. As a result, those who still want to coach have to pick up the slack. Briwa said that the situation is almost impossible.
There have been several solutions suggested to remedy the situation. One would be to hire another faculty member who has coaching credentials, but money again is the major deterrent.
A second proposal has been to merge the two departments and place it in the school of education. However, members of both departments have reservations about such a move. Some male faculty members feel that the merger woul not benefit their situation. Some of the females fear domination by their male counterparts and loss of identity.
One item that favors the merger would be the establishment of a larger and more diversified graduate program in phy. ed. With the new Kolf facilities and the naming of Oshkosh as a graduate center, the situation is ideal.
Both departments fear the harmful effects on students while these problems are being resolved. Just how much damage will be done is unforeseeable. It’s really too bad that such a fear can’t be soothed. It will take time, but hopefully the benefits will be reaped not by the men’s or women’s phy-ed department, but f by the students.

I earned my Doctorate and have taught at Easr Texas University and have also taught at UW-Stout.
My career as a professional photographer started when I was in high school. Working with homemade equipment, I photographed groups of people and sold prints to the people in the picture. As an undergraduate student at Ohio State University, I earned part of my college expenses oy working as a photographer for the Physics
Rochester Institute of Technology. At Rochester I majored in Illustrative Color Photography and Commercial Industrial Photography.
Upon graduation from R.I.T., I worked in the Color Technology Division of the Eastman Kodak Company until I decided that I wanted to get back into professional picture making. First I obtained a job, working as a commercial photographer for a large photographic organization. Then I was made Photofinishing Plant manager. After several traumatic experiences in this area of employment I decided to leave professional photography and try teaching. Much to my surprise, I discovered that I liked Teaching.

Membership in THE WIND ENSEMBLE is a goal for many wind and percussion students. The overall ability of the students is higher and the organization is especially beneficial for music majors as it exposes tnem to very demanding material.
The group, directed by Dr. Thomas Neice. has 50 members, most of whom are music majors and minors. Students must audition for membership and many work their way up from other organizations in the department.
Individual development is stressed and the students often form smaller groups to play chamber music and study concert pieces. The general repertoire of this group centers around serious music that requires individual technical sKill and the ability to interpret complicated material.
Tne Wind Ensemble stages two formal concerts per year at which faculty and student soloists are featured. They perform the “Tour-Alumni Concert" and the "Festival of Marches" with the Titan Band and tour area high schools annually. Often they are asked to tape concert band literature for illustrative use in high school music clinics.
THE CHAMBER CHOIR, under the direction of Dr. Harold Porter, specializes in music written for a limited number of voices. This group contains from 16 to 20 members chosen from the Junior and Senior classes. It normally consists of music majors but is open to others who care to audition.
Madrigals, motets and cantatas of the Renaissance and Baroque periods are emphasized in the repertoire. Serious contemporary music is also performed.
The Chamber Choir tours and makes special appearances as well as staging two concerts a year in the Music Hall on campus. Thus year their special Christmas Eve performance of a Bach Christmas Cantata was video-taped and seen on WPNE-TV.
They also performed in conjunction with the University Choir in concert with the Fox Valley Orchestra and with the Milwaukee Music For Youth Orchestra.

THE UNIVERSITY CHORALE, led by Ernest Teie. is an organization for those people who like to sing and are not necessarily voice students. It is open to anyone who wishes to sign up and usually consists of between 200 and 250 members.
The Chorale teaches students the value of participation in a large group of voices. Enjoyment, however, plays an important part in the purpose of the group, especially in the choice of music they perform. Selections from show tunes, folk songs, popular music and light classics form part of the general repertoire. All in all. the stress is away from serious classical pieces.
The Chorale sponsors an on-campus concert with the Bel Cantos at the end of each semester. They also sing volunteer Christmas programs on request.Titan Band

The Band, directed by Dr. Alvin Curtis, performs a “Spring Concert” and a “Winter Concert” in conjunction with the Regimental Band. They also provide the pep band entertainment at oasketball games and work with the Regimental Band at football games.

The newspaper serves four major objectives: It is the principal medium tor news, information and features pertaining to this campus; It gives commercial firms the opportunity to make readers aware of products and services; It is a laboratory for journalism students to obtain practical experience in all phases of newspaper production: It gives students the opportunity to experiment with new techniques of journalism while learning the basic requirements of the field.

Senior Steering Committee
The SENIOR STEERING COMMITTEE serves as the liason between UW-0 seniors, the Pollock Alumni Board and the Commencement Committee. Members are selected during the spring semester of each year and all seniors are eligible to interview for a position.
The Committee selects the Class Gift, coordinates events sponsored in conjunction with the Pollock Alumni House and selects a student commencement speaker each semester. They award honors including the "Outstanding Senior" and Who's Who Among Students in America's Universities and Colleges.
This year the Committee conducted three seminars focusing; on alternative strategies for seniors after graduation. The Committee hopes to continue in this direction of presenting programs geared to benefit the senior.

The NATIVE AMERICAN STUDENT ASSOCIATION is com prised of all students on the UW-0 campus who are either of Native American ancestry or who have been adopted by an Indian family or tribe in formal ceremony. NASA is a member of the Wisconsin Native American Student Association and is represented on the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council's Education Committee of Wisconsin.
Members are actively engaged in the recruitment of Native American students to UW-0 and once an individual is in attendance the concern is with student assistance in the form of financial and academic advisement.
Because most Native Americans have been alienated from the educative processes as they exist today. NASA also serves as a vehicle in initiating social and community activities which have a Native American orientation. NASA sponsors cultural events and brings internationally known speakers such as N. Scott Momaday and Chief Dan George to the campus.
NASA emphasizes the incorporation of sound academic courses of Native American studies into the UW-0 curricula. Such studies would result in higher rates of matriculation, retention and graduation.
and Debate Team
The FORENSICS AND DEBATE TEAM hosts and participates in many different kinds of competitive speaking throughout the year.

In addition to these activities the team brings two international debaters to the campus each year. This year they will come from New Zealand.

University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

• •f t
Well, we’ve reached the end of our long life as a voice of student activities. This issue’s pervading theme, at least for the staff members and others associated with the magazine, is the death of The I,ast Quiver. According to the Allocations Committee, the financial lake was drained and The I ast Quiver was left in the middle, stuck in the political mud.
Relating to the above, staff reporter Bill Schlamer conducts an in depth study of the Allocations Committee and how they operate. The situation is viewed from the side of the activities requesting funds and from across the table where the Committee members sit in judgement.
The prevailing opinion on the part of activity representatives is that Committee members are inexperienced and don’t understand the functions and needs of individual organizations. But spokesmen for the Allocations Committee itself say that these organizations don’t realize how much the budget has suffered from declining enrollment ana increasing demands from new activities. A dilemma? Yes.
This leads to part II of The last Quiver’s study of declining enrollment. In this issue. Bill Schlamer reports on the effects of increased enrollment in Vocational. Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) and how it relates to the population drop at UW-O. It seems that many high school seniors are entering vocational training in areas where the job markets are secure. The cost of a university education as opposed to vocational training is also looked into.
The problem of attracting students to UW-0 is explored and Schlamer reports on the new programs being instituted toward solving this problem. Among these new approaches to learning are the 4-M program. General Studies program and the institution of individualized majors.
On the lighter side. The Last Quiver
photographers look at the traditional St. Patrick's bay celebrations. Oshkosh may not be an Emerald Isle, but there were a lot of green faces on the day after the festivities.
Interspersed among The Last Quiver’s pages are very revealing photos of streakers and their effect on students and on Chancellor Birnbaum. This mav become a new non-credit student activity that will please the budget people. Streaking is free and certainly doesn’t require much equipment—except for that which is already attached.
Student activities are naturally the most important subject of a yearbook and this issue highlights the drama department’s production of LOVERS, a play written by Brian Friel. The play explores the different sides of love in its two aptly titled vignettes. WINNERS and LOSERS. Also highlighted is the physical education department. In this issue The Last Quiver looks at UW-0 baseball, wrestling, gymnastics, track, swimming, tennis and basketball teams and their achievements. Our subjects range from the story of a very unusual freshman, 69-year-old Harold Frick, to the final pages of The Last Quiver which contain the senior pictures.
Thus ends the story of UW-O’s yearbook. We hope you enjoy this last issue. Possibly a new publication will evolve out of the void left by The I-ast Quiver’s demise. We certainly hope so. UW-0 needs an official voice to record the changes that will most surely occur on this campus due to the new political climate in the administration. We hope to see you again. n

Letter From the Editor -
Well folks, here it is. The last issue of THE LAST QUIVER. It’s been a really good year for me. I have enjoyed myself in putting out this magazine-yearbook and I hope that you have enjoyed the book as much as I.
I would like to extend my thanks to a number of people both here on campus and off. that have made this job a lot easier to cope with than it normally would have been. First of all. I would like to thank a person that has been more than patient with me this year. When the pressure was on she understood and usually tried to ease the strain. Thank you W.E., for being you.
My thanks also go out to Jan Otto, Mike Sajbel, Phyllis Broadbent, Dr. Gary Coll, Dr. David Lippert, Mike Scully, and others, too numerous to mention here. Without your help and encouragement this magazine may never have reached the presses.
My apologies go out to the 77 editors of Quivers past, that have made the book what it is today. All I can say here is that I am sorry that this publication might have to die after it is reached the acclaim that it deserves.
Enough for the thanks. Now to get down to an editorial that appeared in the 1971 Quiver, headed by Chuck Forster. Purpose of the reprint? I would like to write a reply editorial to his.
Well, here is what the situation looked like from a student's view back in 71—
The Wisconsin State University at Oshkosh is a typical University. In these days of necessary higher education. Oshkosh has experienced an overwhelming but typical expansion. Colleges need your help and Oshkosh is no different. It is a typical University.
And the people at Oshkosh are typical too. Administrators. instructors, students and maintainers are all typical people. And these typical people work m a typical Midwestern city of more than 50.000. And the university-community relationship is like most university-community relation-ships...confrontation. But that's only typical.
Oshkosh isn't a beautiful campus. It has very little ivy covering its structures. As a matter of fact, it has very little identity at all. There are no fancy gates
enclosing the campus, no beautiful drive up to the president's house, no traditional bells ringing every morning. Oshkosh is an unidentifiable but typical campus.
And the Oshkosh State University is young in relation to its size. Although the institution has existed one-hundred years, only in the past eight years has Oshkosh grown But it has been a typical growth. Year after year, the state has appropriated funds for typical buildings to be built at Oshkosh. These buildings serve their purpose but they don't approach the realm of superb architecture. They are typical, rapidly constructed buildings.
And these buildings are made for a typical population explosion. Typical high school graduates are deciding to enter a typical school...that's probably why they come to Oshkosh. It's a typical place. The people in Oshkosh. Wisconsin live day to day. exist from day to day like all typical people the world over.
The typical administrator at Oshkosh is in prison. He has constructed a cell around himself and has forgotten to forge a key. Day by day. these administrators awaken each morning, spend a hard day at the cell, and return at five o'clock. But this is typical. To see the president, vice-presidents and directors strolling around, exploring this typical university is untypical. To see the administrators sit down and chat with students in the union is untypical and embarrassing. But the students only gawk and gape because this is such an untypical experience for typical students.
And the instructors at Oshkosh are typical, of course. A very few have BAs and B.S.s, but most of the faculty corps has its masters and Ph.D.s. But that's typical. Oshkosh has a multi-mixture faculty.
These employee's of the university are good and bad. fair and unfair, easy and hard, creative and drab, young and old. new and outdated, intelligent and uneducated, logical and unreasonable, open and closed minded, competent and incapable and on and on. No one person possesses these characteristics to one extreme or the other. Faculty members are mixed up and typical. And typical students realize it. But students tend to prefer one characteristic over another. Namely, they prefer a teacher over a» worker, a laborer, a businessman. Typical students have typical dislikes and an education the most typical dislike stands against unprofessional professionals. There is no excuse for an incompetent instructor as well as no respect. But all of this is typical.
And those typical students at Oshkosh extend their educational experience in a typical four year pattern toward another commencement. College education isn't as hard as parents are often led to believe. It's a typical extension of past education. So the typical student at Oshkosh lives his typical day by doing enough to get by. but little else. The typical student has time to watch TV. time to snooze in the afternoon and time to booze on a Monday and-or Tuesday and-or Wednesday and-or Thursday and-or Friday and-or Saturday and-or Sunday evening. But that's typical. Students at Oshkosh read without comprehension, study without desire and act without thinking. But that is how oldsters understand a typical student at a typical university today.r •
And we can't forget the typical maintainers; the people who keep this university moving at its typical pace. (slow). These people, the secretaries, cashiers, cooks and dishwashers, janitors, snowshovelers. movers, cleaners, and general helpers, give us typical service in a typical environment. They have a |ob to do. It's not always done the way it should be. it's not always done happily, and occasionally it's not done at all. But eventually most things are completed and this is typical.
So here we have a typical university with typical people. This college-oriented community in Oshkosh. Wisconsin...is a typical, second rate university made second rate by its typical people. The people in Oshkosh, like most people, fear working too hard, sacrificing too much, and gaining too little. But then again, that’s only typical. Oshkosh does have exceptions to all cases, which is typical, but which are also just that...exceptions.
But the Wisconsin State University at Oshkosh is not alone. It has eight sister universities all dedicated to provide our nation's students with typical college educations. And with this goal in life, the WSU system lives day by day.
Wisconsin Governor Patrick Lucey made a proposal in February of 1971 to unite the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin State University System into one system. He believes the taxpayers will save money. (which is at least typical, if not true).
But many people disagreed and even more people laughed. How can you join nine typical institutions with a world renowned figure like the University of Wisconsin? Merging second class with first just isn't couth, nor is it typical...but that doesn't mean it's impossible.
The nine state universities realize the odds; they know what they face. But the WSU system, in individuals. is larger than the UW system. The potential and ability istherein Oshkosh. Wisconsin and Eau Claire. La Crosse. Menominee. Platteville. River Falls. Stevens Point. Superior and Whitewater. It's there, all right, but it’s dormant. And at typical U’s this is only typical. But these nine are capable for they are now aware of the problem. So many universities face the typical problem of being so damn typical...it stinks.
The problem is a major one and I sympathize with you All I can say is. ‘‘I’m sorry...
Well Chuck, things have changed since you were here. We are now facing a student enrollment drop, but then, that is one thing that is typical in these times. Colleges now are crying to get students in rather than students begging to get in. If an enrollment drop is typical to a university, then Oshkosh's got it.
I've got more big news for you Chuck! We have a
new president here. (No longer are they called president's, vice-president's, etc. but rather the title has changed to chancellor, assistant-chancellor, etc.) Birnbaum's his name and he claims that he wants to change the things that you say made this university typical.
Naturally, he can do nothing about the physical appearance of UW-O. (by the way, in case you haven't heard, the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin State University Systems have merged.) but the man seems to have big hopes for the academic structure. Catch this one! He says that he wants to make this campus the best in undergraduate studies in the whole system! Before you scoff and gaffaw. listen to this one. This guy actually mingles with the students! That’s no B.S. either. No more cell constructed around the chancellor. He's as free as those streakers that you've been hearing about in the news.
I can't really say much about everyone elso here yet. That can only be seen after a year or so of living in a totally new atmosphere that this Birnbaum fella brought with him. This will be the real test as to whether UW-0 is truely a typical U.
As for typical four year educational patterns for students. Well that's changing here too. The 4-M and General Studies programs are just two working examples compared to the many that this Birnbaum guy wants to start up.
I don't know Chuck but I think that this university may make it. Now it all depends upon the students and teachers. Ya. I know what you're going to say. How can you change the typical people that we already have here. You can't very well fire a typical student, and we have plenty of them. All I can say is that I hope that with the new environment that Birnbaum has generated, these students will either grow up or get out.
Back in the late 60’s and early 70's these kids were fighting for the right things, peace and brotherhood. Sure, they went about it in the wrong way sometimes but at least they were doing something about it. Hopefully they will realize what all this was for and see that what they were actually fighting against was the typicalness in this world.
Maybe, maybe they'll make something out of themselves and in the meantime make something work in this university's favor.
It's all up to them now.

Sam sipped on his beer in the B's while Doc Elliot silently cured a little boy of smallpox in the corner. TTte iukebox clicked from Crosby.Stills. Nash and Young to Led Zepplin. One of the members of an entirely male party at the far end of the bar spilled his Old Style and everybody except Sam laughed.
His interview tomorrow was beginning to trouble him. He knew he'd have to start out at the bottom and it hadn't bothered him at first. But then his old man got on his ass and his girlfriend began wondering how long it would be before she got her diamond. TTicrc just weren't enough hours in the day for Sam. He looked at his watch and decided that there wasn't anything more that he could do tonight to change it. Barkeep! Another one here! Symptoms of the graduation crunch had begun to show up in Sam. Half of those damn resumes he had labored so long over had already come back negative .Maybe he hadn't sent enough of them out or maybe he had stressed the wrong points. It was probably that he had come off like such a schmuck on paper that the employers thought. "Christ, what’s this guy s game?"
It wouldn't have occurred to Sam that maybe there just weren't any jobs to be had. because it wouldn't have occurred to his old man. Sam knew that if he didn't come up with something before he graduated his family would be consoling and say. "Well, at least you tried." He also knew that deep down they'd all be thinking, '"niat clown! He spent four years loafing, does he expect to do it for the rest of his life?"
What? Yeah, brinp me another one. What time is it? Well, that's just fine, thirty minutes to leouila time, right? 1 guess it does seem busy here tonight. Well, you know, midsemester funk and all that. Everybody’s got to live it up while they can. Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.
My God. 1 sound like an idiot. Sam thought. The bartender had been unimpressed as bartenders always are. If Sam couldn't dazzle a bartender how in the hell could he expect to impress a corporate executive out to hire energetic young workers willing to stooge at near minimum wages for a few years for a shot at the top? It's not an easy job being witty and brilliant with a totally impartial stranger. Sam knew that to know him was to love him. but in the last couple years not that many people knew him and not that many loved him.
The moment Sam had been dreaming about for four years was almost here and he was not near ready for it. liiose long quiet Saturday afternoons on the dorm bunk Sam had spent dreaming about his important iob and brand new Shelby came back to him like poorly digested Shepard's Hie.Girding his intellectual loins he settled back on his bar stool and wallowed in his now suddenly pathetic situation.
"I'm loo old to cry. but it hurts too much to laugh!" Arialai Stevenson said that.didn't he? Oh. my God that was
ridiculous, he thought, comparing himself to Adalai Stevenson. Bartender!! Another one here and also a shot of your finest!
So what happens if tomorrow's interview is. a dismal failure? Thererll be other interviews on other days. Tomorrow's is with the Walgreens Company anyway. Shit, w ho wants to work there? The important thinjj is you tried. If you try long enough and hard enough you're bound to come up with something.
Sam ordered another shot of the bartender's finest and watched Johnny Carson banter senselessly and. thank God. silently in the corner, thanking his guests for a fun evening. Sam downed the shot and washed away it's taste with another Old Style. J. Geil's came to a crashing halt on the jukebox. Sam began to clumsily put on his coat. Tbe late evening weather capsule was coming to a close and he didn't want to see the Cartwrights save Virginia City again. Not tonight.
He stumbled down Main Street toward home. Tbe interview was at 9:30 VM.and Sam thought he'd be ready in plenty of time. He didn't have a sports iackct. but could borrow a tie from his roommate. I’ll get down there early, he thought, and go over my resume, prepare some oueslions and come off as my charming ana debonair self. So what if I can't get an executive position right away. Maybe they'll let me count asprin OR SOMETHING. I can still get high after work. It'll be just like hack at school.
Sam slipped off the curb, but fortunately there were no cars around. He dusted himself off and headed homeward, thinking of aspirin. Jesus, and four years of college.

THESE ARE THE REASONS FOR DECLINING ENROLLMENT
VTAEIS BIG WINNER THIS YEAR
The big winner in the state higher education enrollment race this year has been the Vocational, Technical and Adult school system (VTAE).
While UW system enrollment was increasing 1 per cent this year, state VTAE director Eugene Lehmann was reporting a gain of 6 per cent. And while I'WO enrollment dropped 8 per cent. Fox Valley Technical School enrollment jumped 15 per cent.
A coincidence- or are the liberal arts colleges now competing with vocational schools for the same prospective students?
Most UW-0 officials believe they are not. Area VTAE officials. riding the crest of enrollment prosperity, agree.
"If vocational schools are offering what they have traditionally offered, then they are not competing with UW-0," said Arthur Darken, dean of the UW-0 College of letters and Science.
"The university should not be in the business of training a student how to key punch a computer, for example, but a person concerned with computer design needs to have knowledge of theory and he belongs in the university. Teachers in vocational schools do not have the depth of educational background to teach certain courses."
Darken noted that more business firms were beginning to run private vocational schools of their own. providing
even more sharply directed training than formal vocational schools. He cited training for insurance underwriters as an example.
Officials at other Oshkosh area college campuses had mixed reactions to VTAE enrollment increases.
At Ripon College.'Chris Small, dean of admissions said. "It is my best guess that there will continue to be a move toward vocational-technical education in the next few years. This will obviously have an effect on some four-year institutions. However, the four-year colleges and universities will continue to attract the vast majority of those students who
‘academically really should go to college."
“College age people will probably make educational choices based on cost, the college job market versus the technical job market, and other factors." predicted Jean
Warford, admissions and
orientation counselor at UW-
"Right now the federal government has invested great sums of money in vocational-technical education. Students, at least for the moment, seem to be seeking job skills for monetary purposes and security rather than for education itself," she said.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the higher educational coin. William Serik, whose VTAE District 12 serves Appleton and Oshkosh, and Robert P. Sorenson, district director of
the Morraine Park Technical Institute District 10 at Fond du Dae. both have supported the mission statements of the UW system schools in their area.
Appearing before a panel of three UW regents at a public hearing in Oshkosh recently, Serik said he "firmly believed" in the mission of UW-0 as a business administration, arts and sciences, and teacher training institution. But he warned that UW-0 should, "exclude any training programs of a paraprofessional nature which are below the baccalaureate level."
The UW center system cut tuition fees at the UW-Fond du Lac campus from $238 to $75, an amount nearer the fees charged by Sorenson’s VTAE district. A similar effort to increase enrollment by reducing tuition fees was made at the UW Barron Countv campus.
The UW-Fond du Lac campus reported a 46 per cent increase in enrollment this year, while at Rice I ake, the UW-Barron County school gained 27 per cent...
“It is interesting to note that when fees were established at a common level, both institutions in both locations experienced the largest enrollment increases in their respective systems," said UW President John C. Weaver recently.
Morraine Park Technical Institute at Fond du Lac reported a 24 per cent increase in full-time and part-time enrollment, while the In-

Enrollment at Oshkosh area VTAE (Vocational, Technical and Adult Education) districts continues to climb, while UW system schools have had mixed success the past six years. To allow valid comparisons, VTAE enrollment figures shown here are for full-time adult students only. With part-time students added, Fox Valley reported a 15 per cent increase in enrollment this year, while Morraine Park gained 24 per cent.
dianhead Vocational District, which serves the Rice Lake area, recorded a 20 per cent boost.
When asked by UW Regent Frank Pelisek whether he could explain why enrollment had increased at both the Fond du I.ac liberal arts campus and his vocational-technical campus. Sorenson said. “The two schools have separate and distinct missions, and that is clear in the Fond du Lac community”
Meanwhile, in the Oshkosh area, UW-0 enrollment continues to slip, while Fox Valley VTAEenrollment.stimulated by an innovative "open end" policy which allows students to pick and choose the time they wish to attend classes, continues to climb.
Where are the VTAE students coming from?
‘■'Hie majority of our full-time students come directly to us from high school." said Russell Van Straten. registrar of the Fox Valley Technical Institute at Appleton.
"I would estimate that 80 per cent of them enroll directly after completing high school, 'lhe ratio of man to woman has been fairly consistent over the past two years, with approximately 60 per cent male and 40 per cent female enrolling." Van Straten said.
According to Van Straten. VTAE courses at Appleton showing the largest enrollment increases were police science, child care and development, fire science, real estate, and truck driving.
A check of the UW-0 catalog revealed that it also offers courses in police science, real estate and child growth and development.
Wanted: General studies for the student who isn’t sure about his college or career goals; individual majors for the student who wants to zero in on a career more specifically defined than the major fields now being offered; business education minors; and interest oriented packages for others.
All may be coming soon at your neighborhood counselling office.
'Die first program out of the educational starting blocks will
be an innovative "general studies" program. UW-0 officials hope to attract 350 new freshmen students next fall by designing a program aimed at people who would not normally consider continuing their education beyond high school.
Arthur Darken, dean of the UW-0 College of letters and Science, and chairman of the UW-0 General Studies Development Committee, said the program would attempt to meet the needs of two types of students: “those w’ho have
been looking for something between vocational training and what they would get in a four-year college, but who want more career preparation than they might have received in a liberal arts school in the past."
"The second need." said Darken, "is to design a very broad education to help the student who is still searching for a career to make fundamental decisions relating to the philosophy of life, his role in society, and his relationship to other people."
According to Michael Meeker, chairman of the UW-0 com puter science department, and vice chairman of the General Studies Development Com mittee, "The emphasis will be on practicality, but the program will he unlike vocational training. We would not set up specific vocations; rather skills in areas, or what we call ’clusters,’" he said.
Although specific instructions have not gone out to UW-0 recruiters. Meeker said the program might be aimed at someone who had graduated from high school a year or two ago, but couldn't "see" college at that time. Meeker thought that a person in that position might now be willing to again weigh the advantages of a college education with those of his real-life experiences.
"The general studies program was derived from extensive study of the weaknesses and strengths of the present program as well as those programs outside the university," Meeker explained.
Although tuition fees for general studies students will be the same as those fees charged students in existing programs.
Meeker said a financial consideration would be the greater flexibility a general studies student would have in scheduling classes.
Using a u d i o -1 u t o r i a I methods, the program borrows from the "open end" classroom concept which has been successful at area vocational schools. Students are able to choose the time of day they wish to attend class, and they proceed at their own pace.
"Students will be able to complete studies sooner if they choose, and the flexibility of class schedules will allow students to hold jobs to fund their education." Meeker says.
Tliere are differences between the general studies program and the 4-M program which was added to the UW-0 curriculum last fall, according to Meeker. He said. "4-M is an extension of current departmental offerings. General studies will be preplanned with a different emphasis in mind, and there will be continuity from semester to semester."
Students enrolling in general studies would schedule a minimum of ten credits in the general studies program each semester, with tne balance of their studies selected from other general studies courses, or from the existing departmental offerings in the Schools of Letters and science. Nursing, Business Administration, or Fklucation.
Meeker said the general studies student would be eligible for an associate degree after two years in the program. 'Ihe student would be able to convert his general studies credits to the four-year program if he chooses.
General Studies is designed to attract new students to UW-0. but Timothy Hoyt, director of UW-0 planning and institutional research, believes the greatest problem facing the school is keeping students who have already enrolled at UW-O.
A soon to be released study of student attrition compiled by Hoyt's office tells UW-0 educators, "to increase our efforts toward ‘selling’ our programs (and ourselves), as well as developing programs
19better suited to today's markets.”
The study recommends the approval of individual majors, a business education minor, and more independent research. It asks the Placement and Counselling offices to keep tuned to the current and future job markets, and to keep students informed of changes and trends.
According to the study, the proposed individual major would allow the student, through counselling and special programming, to select courses which fit his interests, abilities, goals, and specific job requirements. For example, if a student has decided to become a city manager in a certain area of the country, he might select a cross-section of courses from areas such as urban development, business administration and political science to complete his major requirements. Tne major would be planned by the student and advisors from the departments in which the student elects to take courses.
Clifford I »rson, dean of the UW-0 School of Business Administration, also believes the university should deem phasize its major fields of study.
"Tiie traditional concepts on this campus of so-called ‘majors’ tends to be self-defeating when it comes to career preparation because it is a narrow concept of education,” I arson said. "Requiring 36 credits in a single subject area is way too much.”
“letters and Science faculty throughout the U.S. have been very protective of their areas.” said I arson. "TTiat has been wearing thin.”
Uirson sees several changes in business administration education in the next few years. He said students would be allowed more freedom to progress at their own speed through learning modules, and that the university would be contracting modules from other institutions and organizations.
There will be more off-campus instruction for graduate students, and managerial training will shift
from the undergraduate level to the graduate level, according to I .arson.
More businessmen who have completed four years of college training will return for their masters' degrees, I.arson predicted.
If the recommendations of the student attrition study are adopted, students may soon be able to elect a minor field of study within the School of Business Administration.
In his School of letters and Science office. Dean Arthur Darken had anticipated one of the attrition report’s conclusions.
"'Hie university should offer more independent studies," he suggested, and then added more practical experiences, more field work, more specializations, and more individual research to his list of suggestions.
Darken also looks for the returning student to make what he called, "an intriguing change" in higher education.
"As the general income level of society moves up. there should be a rebirth of liberal education as a humanizing experience to make everyone a better and happier person--a person who is looking for more
than just a job," he theorized.
"People might begin to sense the shallowness and hollowness of some jobs, and will start coming back to college for short-term courses."
Darken may be right. As he spoke, the sun, which had been stubbornly hiding behind thick, late-autumn clouds for several days, suddenly broke through the clouds, illuminating his desk.
A good omen?
Maybe. But a more welcome sign, one that would be most likely to shore up UWO's sagging enrollment, would be increased demand for its School of Education graduates. That would allow the school to again pursue its original and primary mission- turning out primary and elementary school teachers.
Until this happens--and primary and elementary enrollment projections offer little hope for an increased demand for teachers the next two years-UW-0 may continue to struggle to maintain current levels of enrollment.

Harold FYick just can’t stay away from school. He wants to teach UW-0 students a few “ ricks of the trade" and he can speak from experience.
FYick is a (59-year old fresh man and. in his own words, has “been around."
When he was young, his home stood where Evans Hall is today. 'Hie family doctor was Dr. Oviatt. whose house is now the Chancellor’s residence.
FYick graduated from Swart Campus School in 1920 and Oshkosh High School in 1925. He became a paper technician by trade but kept making return appearances at schools.
The year 1926 was divided between I awrence University, and Oshkosh Normal. “I used to talk to people in school to get ideas," said FYick. He would then apply these ideas to his profession.
He returned to school in 1973. this time to improve his grammar. In the intervening years he has been a writer and correspondent for the Wisconsin Press Association, and only Harold FYick and the Ii»rd know what else.
He does write some articles for the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern, but not for salary. "My whole life has been like a free-lance writer,"
said FYick. "Now I’d like a regular syndicated column with an appeal to young and old people."
FYick said that being in school puts him on an even level with students. They could learn a lot from him and his stories about his experiences are numerous and very entertaining. One hand-writing analyst has noted that he is a quick-minded, sharp thinker who pays attention to details.
FYick said he keeps his contact in wide circulation and never eats in the same place daily. "To move up. one should
be neatly dressed, independent and alert." he said. “life is so many games. It’s best to go out with a lot of people, even if you don’t like them. Make a lot of contacts and play hard to get," he emphasized.
So if any of you students out there w'ant to talk to a man who knows what’s going on because he’s already been there, see Harold FYick. He’ll be glad to share his experiences with you.

Allocations Committee Scrutinized
by bill schlamer
The case would have been right up any TV detective’s alley. Everything seemed to be in place, except the body. The body was missing.
His office door was open, the veiling lights had been switched on: his rain and shine coat was there, hanging neatly on the rack. His shoes were where you would expect to find them, the tips of the toes barely visible under his desk. But he was no where in sight.
Of course, when your assignment is to poke into the business of one of UW-O’s most powerful committees, the Allocations Committee--God father to some and Good Fairy to others--your imagination can easily run the hundred in one second flat.
The joint student-faculty Allocations Committee is playing an increasingly larger role in determining where approximately one-third of your $63 a semester activity fee will be spent (activity fees are sometimes billed as “segregated fees").
Although the Allocations Committee acts as an advisor to the Chancellor, Committee recommendations are usually accepted. This year, the Committee tentatively granted over $363,000 to thirty UW-0 activities; enough money to retain 27 full-time instructors, or to finance tuition and activity fees for 600 students, or enough money to purchase 51,000 yearly subscriptions to the "I ast Quiver."
But to have your first contact disappear, shoeless.....
“Sorry to keep you waiting, and pardon my stocking feet," apologized J. Patrick Walsh, director of UW-0 radio station WRST, as he padded into his office.
“Would you mind if I do some taping during the interview?" he asked as we walked down the corridor into the WRST production room where he was given some quick technical instructions by a woman student whose knowledge of electronics was well beyond the woofer and tweeter stage. Walsh offered me the only chair in the room, hoisted himself onto a nearby workbench where he could watch me and
keep an eye on the tape deck at the same time.
"Ix t me say first that I think the Allocations Committee has done an admirable job. and I'd be the first to commend them," Walsh said, and then added, "But the committee may be hard pressed to understand the individual activity’s needs."
Walsh was one of five activity advisors who had answered a “Uist Quiver" questionnaire sent out to 23 of the 32 activities which had requested funds from the Allocations Committee this year.
.Allocations Committee critics were expected to be heard from, so it was somewhat surprising when Walsh in dicated a willingness to talk about the Committee: sur-
prising because WRST was one of the few activities granted an increase over the previous year’s allocation; yet WRST provides a good example of some of the problems confronting activity advisors and a committee which has to deal with decreasing enrollment and decreasing funds on the one hand.and increasing interest in certain activities on the other hand.
Interest in radio and television is booming, and according to Walsh, the number of students programing radio and TV courses has increased by at least 100 students since he arrived at UW-0 in 1973. He said 150 students were working at the radio station
this year.and added that not all of them were radio-TV majors.
Walsh had asked the .Allocations Committee for nearly $24,000 to fund this year’s WRST operations, nearly double the amount received last year, but the Committee granted W'RST only $15,000.
"Tlie money we didn’t get was put in the budget to duplicate equipment and services,’’ Walsn explained, “and that was part of the Committee's argument against the increase. I can see their point, but we have only so many hours in a day and most of our equipment is already committed. We use equipment in classrooms twelve hours a week, and of course, we can’t use it for broadcasting or production when we’re using it in classrooms. It's very much a logistical problem. But we had to put a moratorium on capital equipment."
“We rely solely on the Allocations Committee for our income," Walsh continued. "W'RST is forbidden by law to seek advertising, and the University has certain policies against fund raising, so we can't hold bake sales."
A student came in and unceremoniously bummed a cigarette from Walsh. Budget problems, apparently.
“It would probably be impractical." Walsh said as he walked over to the amplifier, turned the volume control and strains of “gonna take a sen-

timental journey" wafted out of the speakers,a thirty-three and a third recording played at seventy-eight; "but the ideal way would be to have a representative of every activity on the Committee. The radio station is given only 15 minutes in front of the Committee to explain its operation, and we can’t present a case for expenditures of twenty to thirty thousand dollars in that amount of time."
As Walsh rewound the tape, he reconsidered his previous remark and ammended his suggestion, "I guess my choice for improvement would be to have each person on the Committee become responsible for two or three activities. He would become sort of a miniexpert on the matters of his assigned activities, and would report back to the Committee to explain the operation of those activities under his jurisdiction to the other members of the Committee."
A student came in and bitterly complained that his VW had just been hit and run for the third time this year. Facing more budget problems, obviously.
"The Committee should increase its per-man-hour contact with the activities," Walsh said as he returned to his mini-expert suggestion. "After all. they’re deciding which direction our life blood will flow.”
The five student Allocations
Committee members and their three alternates are appointed by the Oshkosh Student Association (OSA) Executive Hoard with the approval of the OSA Student Senate, while its four faculty members are appointed for three-year terms by the Faculty Senate. The Dean of Students serves as a non voting advisor. Walsh was asked whether the Committee was important enough to warrant election of its members by students and faculty rather than appointment by student and faculty organizations.
"Perhaps elections should be held," Walsh thought. "It certainly is an important enough committee for campus elections."
A student interrupted, advising Walsh he had a telephone call, and WRSTs director padded back down the corridor to his office, still shoeless.
Taped on the WRST office door are two frames of a year-old Peanuts cartoon-the one in which Lucy is given a “Z" grade, complains to her teacher to no avail, stomps off to see her principal, screaming, "A 'Z'. that s not a grade, that’s sarcasm!"
Some of the activities requesting funds from the Allocations Committee have had similar thoughts after receiving their allotments this year, "That's not an allocation, that’s sarcasm!"
"We submit our request and cross our fingers," said one of three advisors who agreed to discuss the Allocations Committee and its recommendations for the current school year. The three preferred not to be identified, although Irked, Piqued and Vehement might best describe their demeanor.
"Iiook, the Allocations Committee supplies all of our funds, so we don’t want to cut our own throats," explained Irked as I agreed to withhold their names. I had heard the same phrase before. Another advisor had bounced his decision not to discuss Allocations down through several University offices for the same reason.
“The Committee flexes its muscles to see how much power it has.” continued Irked, “and we’re caught in the middle. It's'Hiey versus Us, and we don’t like being kicked around like a political football."
Tine three began kicking back. There were more punts than in a scoreless tie football game.
"The Committee represents the student government and the biases of the student government,” Vehement complained. "Whatever ax OSA has to grind, it grinds it through the Allocations Committee." he charged.
"What is their formula?" asked Irked. "They should apply whatever formula they

The faculty on the Committee is intimidated by the students, but that’s fine, it's the students’ money and they should be making the decisions.
"There’s a multiple standard.’’ agreed Vehement. "'Ihere's no consistency. They fabricate their reasons for approval or disapproval of funds after the fact. They’re continually shifting ground.”
“We’ve met with student representatives of the Committee for the past couple of years.” Vehement wearily explained. "We’ve talked about our programs from point zero each year, but apparently no one used the information, no one recorded the data, and there was no feedback from the Committee."
"It would make more sense if people representing the activities were on the Committee,” Irked suggested, taking the same sentimental journey Walsh had taken earlier.
"You mean throw the money out on the table and let 30 or 40 activities fight for it?’’ I asked."Do you really think that would work?"
“Well, at least each activity would be represented, and if each advisor knows we can't have everything we want, we would be more willing to compromise than would a committee that isn’t aware of everyone’s needs."
"Suppose each student was allowed to decide where his $63 activity fee would be spent,” I said, taking the opportunity to pass on a suggestion obtained from another advisor. "Suppose each student, when he or she went to pay his or her activity fee each spring and fall, was given a computer punch card with each eligible activity listed on the card, and percentages listed in columnjs opposite each activity; say 1.5, 10.15,25 percent, or whatever. Each student would then punch out on the card the percent of his own activity fee which he wants allocated to the activity of his choice."

"like the United Fund?" asked Vehement.
"Anything would be better than what we have now," Vehement shrugged.
It would be an understatement to say that Irked. Piqued and Vehement clearly feel the present allocations system is an Un-united fund.
Whenever you find a story about allocations, you’re bound to find Intercollegiate Athletics and I)r. Eric Kitzman men tioned in it somewhere. Here they are again.
"My basic concern is for the Allocations Committee to get a better handle on the allocatable dollar amounts before making commitments to requesting organizations,” Kitzman said.
“Intercollegiate Athletics contracts for its games well in advance," he explained slowly. "It would help us considerably if the Allocations Committee would stipulate. . . ,” Kitzman paused to scribble a few figures on a scratch pad. ". . .would stipulate, say, $5 a student per semester as our portion of the allocatable funds. Our funds would fluctuate from year to year as the total student enrollment fluctuates, but it would make for better organizational planning. If enrollment drops, we cut back on materials and supplies, and if enrollment increases, we make up what we had lost in the lean years."
Kitzman said he agreed that
"some sort of representation from activities receiving allocatable funds would be of extreme help to the Allocations Committee. For the smaller funds." he suggested, "maybe one person representing five or six small organizations, But who would be well-versed in the activities of those organizations, having their interests in mind, might work.”
He thought that one person could represent Intercollegiate Athletics, Men’s and Women’s Recreation, and that the Committee would not be too unwieldy.
And then he went out to weigh the wrestlers.
A few days later, three student members of tbe Allocations Committee gathered in Reeve’s student government room to weigh the suggestions, complaints and charges of Vehement, Irked,-Piqued, and others. A dozen stacks of Committee budget forms stood neatly on a desk in the background awaiting sorting and stapling, as Committee Chairperson James Shankle, and members Mark Russert and I irry Mahoney situated themselves around an oversized conference table.
"That’s totally false," retorted Shankle when told that an activity advisor had charged that the Allocations f f Committee was grinding whatever ax OSA told it to grind. "We’re not a political arm. We don’t carry out OSA gripes. Our purpose here is toMilan Summ age 20,

allocate funds and not to politik," he insisted.
"We’re linked to the Student Association." Russert interjected. "hut we also get input from the Faculty Senate, the Administration and the student body. If you look at an organizational chart, you’ll find the Allocations Committee in the middle."
"Totally absurd." was Russert’s reaction to the suggestion that activity advisors make up the committee. "You'd have a free-for-all! Every organization feels that they are the most important organization on campus. Ill at would cause more headaches than we have now."
"'Hie larger activities would lobby against the smaller activities." Shankle added and Mahoney agreed, although the Committee has invited some lobbying by smaller organizations, suggesting that the Homecoming Committee obtain funds from the Union Hoard, Speaker’s Series and Concert Committee, and also recommending that Model United Nations seek funds from Forensics.
All three student members opposed election of Allocations Committee members. Mahoney and Shankle argued that "politicians would run for Committee positions rather than students who actually were interested in the Committee's business.
Russert, who had earlier expressed concern over the
inexperience of Committee members, thought that electing students to the Committee would aggravate the problem. "At least, we now have a few people who know the ins and outs." he said.
"Of course. I'd like to have an Allocations Committee com posed of students," said Shankle when asked whether the present five-four ratio of students and faculty was acceptable to students on the Committee, "but the faculty members we have now are interested in the business of the Committee, and the ratio is working out fine. I have no complaints."
"I like the five to four ratio," said Russert. "It’s fair, and I don’t think there has ever been a matter where there has been a vote in which students opposed faculty."
Russert’s assertion was later confirmed by the four faculty members and a former member. Said one faculty member. "We get some interesting splits in votes on that Committee."
Shankle maintained that the Committee was not trying to dictate the policies of an activity by requiring that each activity submit a line budget showing specific areas in which money would be spent, a complaint voiced earlier by Vehement.
"The activity has the option of putting whatever figure it feels it needs on each line," Shankle pointed out. "We don’t
tell the activity how much to put on line accounts. The line item is also designed to help the business office keep track of accounts.”
'Ill e Committee is moving toward Walsh’s suggestion to assign each Committee member to review two or three activity budgets in depth. Each member has selected two or three activities which he will become responsible for, Shankle said, and that an attempt would be made to visit all activities to review programs in the future. Although Committee members did visit activities in the past, the visits were made only when questions in the activity’s budget arose.
Setting specific formulas for allocating funds to activities would be impractical, the three student members agreed. Shankle pointed out that student activities were taking the pressure of reduced enrollment and reduced allocatable funds. He thought that the Union, health service and Titan Stadium allocations should be reduced to help relieve the pressure.
"Some programs have been around a lot of years," Mahoney said. "If they have a lot of money, they can usually attract students regardless of whether the activity actually is beneficial to students."
"Would a computer punch card system in which students allocated their own funds be workable?" I asked.
"Students would have to understand that most of their activity fee goes to the Union, health services and Titan Stadium," Shankle said. "We’ve tried student surveys to obtain student views, but the majority of students didn't know how the Allocations Committee operates.”
"A punch card system might be a good reference," Russert thought, "but incoming freshmen wouldn’t understand dollar figures involved in allocations. If we had some way of educating students about allocations, then it might be all right. Hut it would almost take a required course Freshman year to remedy that."
Still, Russert said he would "like to emphasize student

31I thought it would be rather significant for me to address myself to the students of my term as president of the Oshkosh Student Association. By the time many of you read this column, I shall be out of office and a new president will have taken over. So now is a good time to look back in retrospect and maybe make a few predictions about the future of OSA.
Yes. I have enjoyed being president of the Oshkosh Student Association. It's been one of the biggest challenges I have had in my life thus far. I am still very much grateful for the students who voted me into this office for giving me the chance to serve them. If this administration goes down in the annals of UW-0 history, I hope tnat it will be remembered for an administration that was a continuation of broadening the power base which this student government association has been developing in recent years.
OSA has broadened its powers and concerns in this past year. The Student Government Association on this campus is becoming a more powerful and viable force on this campus. It has been manifested in several major ways this past year. The new chancellor has actively sought for input from students on university policy matters. Today, there are more students sitting on faculty-student committees than there ever has been before. This past January, members of OSA's Legal Services Board presented a proposal before the Board of Regents for funding legal services from segregated fees. The proposal was accepted by the regents and now students at UW-0 will see that legal services will be expanded and Buz Barlow will be on campus more often to counsel students.
This year was the beginning of the tennant’s cooperative. The co-operative has now taken over the off-campus housing listing that was once available at the Housing Office. In taking over the listing, local landlords will now have to register their rental units with OSA. With the organizing of the tenant's co-operative, its hoped that services such as lease explanations and housing code regulations can be provided to the student. Many
students who become tenants for the first time while in college need to know what their rights and responsibilities are to landlords. The landlords also need to be informed of their rights and responsibilities also. The tenant's co-operative is a major step in the right direction to see that all people concerned in the housing matter are treated fairly and equally.
I am quite optimistic about the future of OSA. Even though tne association will continue to be plagued by student apathy, the number of students who are getting involved in the student government process is increasing and I am glad to see this happening. With the arrival of the new chancellor who is actively seeking student involvement, I can't think of a better time for students to get involved in university governance. I sincerely believe that the time for complaining about what's wrong, what’s not goin' on here at UW-0 is over. Now is the time for action and involvement. I hope that many students will take the opportunity because it is knocking at the door right now.
32United Students in Residence Halls has undergone a major change on campus this year. Tlie major change was a reevaluation of USRH goals and purposes.
In the past. USRH’s main objectives were matters such as changing visitation and alcohol policies within the dorms. 'Hiis past year we nave tried to stay away from these issues. Why"? Basically, visitation is a dying issue. TTi is year there have been no major visitation conflicts. Students are playing it cool. Tliey know the current policy is absurd and they break the Board of Regents policy. Illey aren't going to let a group of elderly Wisconsin elite tell them how to run their lives. Students use discretion and they don’t make a big display of breaking the visitation policy. As long as the current visitation policy doesn't bother them, they won't bother it.
The same holds true with alcohol. Beer is now allowed in residence halls and any administrator would be foolish to believe that this is all students have in their rooms. URHA (USRH’s state organization) has submitted a proposal to change the beer policy to include all alcoholic beverages and chances are good that by next fall this policy will have passed the Board of Regents. In the mean time, students are playing it cool and have been getting away with it. We find it hard to press issues that have little or no backing.
So you may ask what has USRH’s main objective been this year? We believe that the major goal of USRH is making the residence halls a better place to live. And these are the major directives we have taken this year to accomplish this goal.
USRH initiated and worked hard on the plan to change North Scott Hall into co-ed living by wings.'Inis means guys and girls will reside on the same floor next year. And depending on demand, this policy could be expanded in later years.
Cable television will be installed in main and floor lounges of every residence hall next year due to USRH efforts. Warner Cable, USRH, and
the Housing Office are also looking into plans that would allow hook-up in every residence hall room.
Under strong pressure from USRH, the Wisconsin Telephone Company has granted the right of Tel-a-Visit service to resident halls. Although there are still problems of implementation. it looks as though by next fall, these differences will be resolved and students mayacquire the service upon request. This one project required many hours of research, meetings, and letter writing to achieve.
USRII's Project Involvement changed residence hall living a little. Halls received a fund of money through USRH to initiate cultural and physical program changes. The money supplied to this fund came from various sources and coordination came from USRH.
The way it stands now, carpeting will be a reality in the residence halls next year at UW-O. USRH has called for the carpeting of several residence halls, hopefully by fall of next year. Much time was spent on studying the cost and feasibility of this program and evaluation of similar programs at other universities.
Simple things, such as furniture removal and being able to keep a bicycle in your room initiated with the USRH this year. Ride Boards are to be installed in each of the commons. Beer is nowon the snack bar menu,this is also due to the efforts of the USRH.
I hope that these minor changes will be continued next year.
USRH has continued with its service programs to the students, such as refrigerator, rental, the room painting program, the crime check inscriber program, and now the painting equipment lending program. 'Hiese programs make living in a residence hall just a little more comfortable and easier.
Tliese are just a few of the programs and projects USRH has undertaken tnis year and I think they have come closer to accomplishing the goal of making residence halls a better place to live. Tliere are many more minor programs USRH has undertaken that I have failed to list.
Success on USRH programs this year has been due to the willingness of the Department of Housing to cooperate and lend their support to us. Maybe our philosophy “bettering the residence halls betters the residence hall occupancy" has rubbed off on a few administrators.
Next year I look for continuation of present programs and the initiation of newer and better programs. USRH does have a place on this campus and it needs the help of all students. After all, it is your home, why not try to change it for the better. __

I ve is something that is rarely, if ever, painless and almost never runs according to plan. The joys and the sorrows and the disappointments of love were the theme of Brian FYiel’s IX)VERS, two poignant vignettes that considered tragedy to be the essence of love.
The first half, titled WINNERS, told the story of Meg (Sybil Ingram), a 17 year-old Irish schoolgirl who became pregnant by her boyfriend Joe (Jerry Mettner). The action took place on a hilltop and consisted of the two discussing their plans for marriage and the future. Their touching naivete and innocence of heart was offset by a bleak narration of their accidental death that same afternoon. The interwoven feelings of exuberance and desolation made a strong statement. The tragedy is not the death itself, but rather the destruction of the young lovers’ dream.
'Ihe remaining segment. LOSERS, was the bittersweet love affair between Andy (Hans MalbeLa middleaged Irish factory worker, and Hanna (Lynn Kaul), the aging daughter of a bedridden widow. Their attempts at love are constantly interrupted by the old lady, so they married to be rid of her and her evening rosaries. But one thing leads to another and they find themselves living with her.
Andy comes home drunk one night and destroys the reputation of St. Phflomena, the recipient of their prayers, in an attempt to assert his individuality, which had been reduced to nearly nothing. He only succeeds in alienating himself from both his mother-in-law anjd his wife as well.
There is a remarkable consistency of tone in this primarily student controlled production. Director Richard Nebel had his characters laboring under love rather than for it and in both cases losing to it rather than finding it. The balance of comedy and tragedy put the audience in the same position as the actors-hopeful. yet with a sense of doom.
The contrasting sets by student scenic designer Robert Bartel created an exciting mixture of moods. For the WINNERS segment the set was simply a bare platform representing a hilltop, while in I.OSERS an intricate three level setting with heavy furniture was utilized.
The Experimental Theatre, where LOVERS was presented,allows the audience to get close to the action. In a play such as this, where feelings are primary and settings minimal, there can be no better location. A small production, a personal story, but indeed a very important one. “ •

input," and he urged students to become knowledgeable about allocations. “We get very little feedback from students, although this year, we did get feedback on Homecoming. One student came in steaming, and I was glad to see that. We explained our position and I think he went away understanding the situation a little better."
Kussert said it was very important to have experienced students on the Committee, and he and Shankle agreed that the only way to obtain experience was to groom freshmen in alternate positions on the Committee. The three alternates presently serving on the Committee are upperclassmen. two of them newly appointed, indicating a lack of interest among this year’s underclassmen.
The stark, sterility of the Committee’s name may be turning students off. "Allocations Committee’’ is definitely Dempseyese. Updating the name might help. Calling it something like "The Well lined Purse" (or the "Well-worn Wallet" in times of austerity) might increase interest.
Until then, applications for Allocations Committee positions can be obtained at the Student Government Office. Reeve Memorial Union.
It was one of those unexpectedly balmy early spring days, a plus in a series of minuses. Dozens of streakers had been out playing tag with campus police the night before, while others were laying in stores of supplies for the big St. Pat’s Day bash just a week away.
The Allocations Committee was having a bash of its own, something new this year. In the past, activity heads were not required to appear at the Committee’s annual hearings; this year each advisor or student head was "invited" to attend one of its two four-hour hearings set for 5 p.m. on two separate days.
Shortly before 5 p.m. on the first day. Committee members began filing into Reeve Room 222; Shankle with a tape recorder and stacks of manila envelopes, followed by Russert
Brenadette Cooks age 21,
1st semester on the Committee
and two janitors carrying an extra table. Dean of Students Edwin Smith carrying a small, portable electronic calculator, Keith Voelker carrying his lunch in a green paper bag, and others.
By 5:15, eight of the twelve Committee members and representatives of the first requesting activity had arrived. Shankle asked if everyone was ready, Russert got up and closed the door, Snankle switched on the tape recorder, and Russert yelled, "Hit it!”
And hit it is what each activity did.
Halfway through the day’s hearings, Smith began warning some of the larger activities that the allocatable portion of student fees would probably be reduced again next year, and asked them to begin considering where they might cut their'budgets if the Committee was forced to ask them to reduce anticipated spending.
Stone punched a few keys on the calculator and announced that with the two-day hearings one-fourth completed, activities that had appeared before the committee had already asked for a total of $99,000, about one-third of the expected allocatable funds.
And the parade of UW-0 activity budgeteers continued. Some came prepared, others unprepared. There were the muddlers and the padders, the hesitant and the sure, the cooperative and the un-
Keith Voelker Assistant Professor of Economics, 1st year
cooperative, and the very few who had complied with the Committee’s request to hold next year’s budget at or below this year’s level.
After the first four hours of hearings, the numbers on the display panel of Stone’s calculator glowed at over $152,000. The hearings were half-way completed, hut activities which had requested over $300,000 last year were yet to be heard. At the rate funds were being requested, the Committee would be faced with at least a $100,000 deficit during the 1974-75 school year.
“F'irst come, first serve?" someone joked as Shankle adjourned the first meeting.
“Why did I reauest appointment to the Allocations Committee?" Dr. Bani Mahadeva repeated the question, and then answered it. "Because I wanted to be on a committee where the action was," she explained as she pulled a manila folder out of a file drawer. The folder appeared to be a loose-leaf Allocations Committee scrapbook.
"I heard about the Allocations Committee during the 1971 hassle," she continued, holding up a 1971 issue of the "Advance-Titan" featuring a front page spread showing three members of the Administration being hung in effigy. Former WSU President Roger Guiles had reduced the number of activities comingJohn Stone instructor of Spanish, 2nd year on the Committee
under the purview of the Allocations Committee, causing an uproar in student government, as several members of the Committee resigned in protest.
Relating to the problem of inexperience of student members on the Committee, she said, “Once you accept student participation on the Committee, you accept a certain amount of inexperience. Students should be appointed to the Committee because it provides a learning experience for them. The Committee shouldn’t become a rigid type of bureaucracy."
“Anarchy," was Mahadeva’s description of a committee consisting of representatives from each activity. "Not feasible at all."
Mahadeva was asked whether the Allocations Committee was making a concerted effort to aid those organizations involved in minority and women’s rights, while declining to fund the more traditional activities like Homecoming, the "Last Quiver," and others.
"Some of the newer organizations have to do with women and minorities," she agreed, "but from getting nothing in the past, they are getting something now -not more than others. Other activities have had to have been cut to accomodate newer activities.”
"We are trying to reach out to
Bani Mahadeva Associate Professor of Sociology,
as many students as we can in as many ways as we can. As we reach out in more directions, of course the money is spread thin. Die present Committee’s value of diversity hurts the activities which have had a large chunk of the pie in the past."
She cited changing views and values among students as reasons for shifts in Committee attitude. “But that does not mean the newer activities are getting preferential treatment," she added. Sociologist Mahadeva likened the allocations souabbling between newer and older organizations to a sibbling rivalry between children with the Allocations Committee acting as a mediating parent.
“Each organization has to sit down and ask itself: are we outmoded, how can we change, how can we involve the city of Oshkosh, and the overriding question, how can we do it all economically," said John Stone, Spanish instructor and a two-year member of the Committee.
The economics of Titan Stadium spurred Stone to seek a seat on the Committee. “I requested appointment because I didn’t like what was happening with the stadium. The time had come to see what was going on." he said.
Stone called the Allocations Committee "a remarkable committee," and scoffed at complaints by critics of excess inexperience. “I believe you
should always have a blend of experienced and inexperienced people," he said. "Otherwise there would be no new ideas, no new ways of looking at things. Prejudices would go on forever and ever, and that
‘Tve tried in my own voting record to stay away from a set policy," Stone replied when asked whether the Committee should be using formulas or applying increases or
decreases in funds across the
board. "Every group must be judged on its own merits. We try to fund programs that contribute the most to
students, and as long as everyone has a voice before the Committee, we can’t go too far off the track."
Keith Voelker. Assistant Professor of Economics, newly appointed to the Allocations Committee this year, said the problem of inexperience on the Committee was "very real," but he thought that having the Dean of Students sit on the Committee as a permanent advisor alleviated some of the problem.
Voelker joined all of the Committee members in expressing reservation about a campus-wide Allocations Committee election.
Tm pretty satisfied with the Committee and its work," Voelker concluded.
Roger Herold, Assistant Dean of the School of Education, who returned for a second term on the Committee this year, said the working relationship between the Committee and the Administration is much better now than it was in 1968-69 during his first Committee assignment when Allocations was involved in a dispute with the Administration over the Committee’s student-faculty ratio. Herold said he had supported the five student-four faculty ratio which was finally adopted in 1969.
"We're getting answers quicker now that the lines of communication have been ’greased' by the Dean of Students," Herold said, echoing ' the sentiments of the three student members interviewed earlier.
“I have some sympathy for
42Edwin Smith Dean of Students
the feeling that line budgets dictate activity policy," he said. “Yet, if you see one activity spending $8 a day on meals, and another activity $3 a day on meals, it helps to have guidelines. Advisors should know what an acceptable charge is."
According to Herold, predetermined formulas are not an answer to activity budgeting problems. “There are not too many common denominators among activities. How can you specify how much to spend on trophies or crepe paper? he asked.
Herold said he had asked for and received a historical analysis of the funds granted to each activity, showing the percentage of available funds each activity has received for the past four years. "If an activity gets a smaller share of the funds available this year than it did last year, I believe we owe that activity an explanation," Herold said.
"Stormy" and "exciting" were the adjectives used to describe the Allocations Committee by two former members, Dr. Marilyn Meyer Potter of the University Counseling Center, and Dr. William Jones, chairman of the Educational Foundation.
"There was a tremendous evolution from a committee that had little information to a committee of great depth," Meyer said. "I feel it is giving a fair and just assessment of tne
activities on campus."
Jones said the function of the Committee had changed to that of a watchdog, monitoring and ferreting out those activities which were offering educational credit to student participants and asking for activity allocations at the same time.
"Disaster," was Potter’s reaction to a committee made up of activity advisors, and both she and Jones maintained the Committee had enough balance so that it was not overly influenced by the OSA
Although the suggestion to allow students to allocate their own funds through the use of computer punch cards was called "novel" by one member and "interesting" by another, most Committee members agreed that the information would be useful only as a barometer of student opinion and not as a method to directly allocate funds to activities.
"There would be administrative and staffing problems," Stone pointed out. "Department heads wouldn’t know how to fund or staff until the student vote was in."
Nearly every one of the Committee members interviewed eventually got around to mentioning that $122,800 of Committee funds are taken off the top each year for debt retirement of Titan Stadium bonds.
"Students of today have to live with the decisions of the students of yesterday," said BaniMahadeva, "and students of tomorrow will have to live with the decisions of the students of today."
Vehement had earlier voiced the same opinion, but approached it from a different erspective. He asked, "If ommittee members come and go from year to year, who is to assume the responsibility if good activities die?”

Some time, a long time ago, in some obscure lockerroom, during the halftime of some obscure game, some obscure coach came up with a brilliant little saying that went something to the effect. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Since that time tne Vince Lombardis and George Allans of the high school and college ranks have uttered those words of inspiration to thousands of athletes.
Some found real meaning in that statement, and to some, like everything else, it went in one ear and out the other.
The athletic year at UW-0 went much the same way. There were times when the guts weren't sucked in and the pride was absent, and there were times when outstanding achievements were attained.
I ast fall, the football team was picked to repeat as conference champs-but they didn't. Everyone could cite a different reason for thier not repeating, but that wouldn't prove anything. Some individuals had great seasons, but some layed down and died.
The golf team brought a little brighter look to the year. Finding themselves more than comfortable in the fall season rather than the spring, the golf team brought home a conference championship.
Cross country runners were stymied by weather, injury, and other physical deficiencies, but pulled it all together to make a more than respectable showing at the conference meet held last fall. Despite their youth, the runners left a bright future for themselves as the last runner crossed the finish line at the conference meet.
The wrestling team had its ups and downs in more ways than one. There were some outstanding performances, especially by Ron Dworak. who placed third in the nation at 142 lbs. and was named All-American for the second straight year. But in spite of some excellent individual records, the grapplers lacked the team effort to put them at the top.
The basketball team finished in its usual middle of the pack standing in the conference. It has been a long drought since a winner has walked onto a Titan basketball court. Again, there is the outstanding individual performance- this time by Greg Holmon. who just fell short of a seasonal
rebounding record. Next year he shouldn’t have to worry about the record unless some of the Titan shots start going in.
The young swimming team was frustrated, but matured. Chris Keefe failed to repeat as an All-American despite breaking some of his own personal records. Next year just may be the year.
At this writing, several spring sports are just beginning and it is impossible to put them in proper perspective.
It is known that the baseball team this year is one of the strongest ever at UW-O. and those who have followed Coach Russ Tiedemann's Titans know what kind of teams he has had in the past.
The tennis team is expected to continue their dominance as they have for the last decade. Jim Davies netters are strong and experienced.
The track team will be a dark horse. Some strong individuals center the components of several untested runners. From indications of early meets, the Titans will by no means have an easy going and they are going to have to "run like hell” to stay ahead of tne conference.
In this case the best is saved for last. What can one say about a team that repeats as national champions for two years in a row? The Titan gymnasts deserve a round of applause and make a success of the entire athletic program at UW-O. Coach Ken Allen deserves the utmost congratulations from the entire UW-O complex.
Tnere were other events in athletics that can’t be accounted for on a scoreboard. Herb Willis received a letter of non-retention, as did other university employees. With decreasing enrollment, there is less demand for certain personnel. It seems unreasonable that one who presents the positive image of UW-O has no place in the budget.
To you coach, wherever you are, who uttered that phrase of encouragement, our hats go off to you. For now you get to watch us put that brief statement to use. Tne going's tough now-and it’s going to get tougher. So keep your eyes on us coacn. Were not going to lay down now! At least I don't think so.

52'Ilie art of photography for me provides a vehicle for self-expression and at the same time the means for earning my livelihood. I guess I'm one of those lucky people that can honestly say that my work is also play.
'though my mother had more than a passing interest in photography and gave me a primitive box camera when I was quite young, the "photo bug" didn’t really bite me until 1941. I wasn't earning much money at the time, but I managed to scrape together enough to buy an Argus 35
After a while I began to earn some money with photography and by 1955 I had become a fulltime professional photographer.
Although I take pictures of just about anything, my main interest is in photographing people. I find that it is tremendously satisfying to rapture on film that believable and natural moment that portrays some essence of being human. I believe that these kinds of pictures of people at work, play,or whatever help me to better understand them, mankind in general, and I suppose, myself. Hopefully, others too can sec something worthwhile in my work.
The commonplace can become extraordinary in a photograph. That is my in lention-to make the ordinary a piece of art.
I became interested in photography three years ago when I began working for Bob Holzman as an assistant, and I have been learning from him ever since.
I am now employed as a designer at the Miles Kimball Co., and am a part-time student here at LJVV-0 majoring in art.
