Many have never been in the military service and some never ask a veteran of the military how he feels, cither because he knows of no one in the military but mainly perhaps because people feel that a military person has fixed ideas about the military and war. Mike Bahn and Tom Van Drasek are students of WSU and both veterans. Here are some of the things they had to say about war and peace. Tom and Mike both enlisted, and for the most part they felt that they did not get a "raw deal" from the recruiter, although Tom felt that the recruiter told them nothing in terms of what to expect as far as military life. Tom termed the recruiter as being "ambiguous about what to expect.” Both veterans were members of the Air Force. They felt that the basic training they went through was more of a mental discipline than physical. These vets were quick to point out that such was not the case of combat oriented branches of the service such as the Army or Marines, where emphasis is on action derived by direct order and to obey instantly. Basic training, the vets found, was more inconvenient than anything else. Basic training is more of a "common denominator" according to Mike Bahn, where everyone, by means of haircuts, uniform, and control of their lives, is placed on an equal basis. Both vets felt that the schooling once they got out of basic training was adequate to very good. Mike was a Vietnamese translator-interpreter and spent over a year training in the field. Tom Van Drasek felt that in a democratic manner there must be some relexation of the strict discipline. Mike felt that strict discipline is a necessity for some people in the service, but for most this discipline is unnecessary. Both Tom and Mike felt that the best experience they got out of the service was the chance to travel abroad. Mike was in Viet Nam and enjoyed talking to the Vietnamese peasants. Tom was stationed in Korea and enjoyed the chance to travel in that country. Tom said you may not see the best places or people at their best, but you do see new things. Tom and Mike could not think of a really bad experience in the service, but Mike related some-tiling that one of his friends said to him about their flying duty in the service. It's "hours of sheer boredom, moments of sheer terror.” I remember a friend of mine who was in Viet Nam and in the first 12 days of his stay he was rocketed and bombed 8 of those 12 days. What about the war in Viet Nam? Tom felt that right now we should not be there and that the war in Southeast Asia is ridiculous. Tom also felt that in 1961 and in the present there were times when we could have helped in a limited way. Mike had the "gung-ho" spirit at first, but he said "this changed to a more mature insight of what was happening.” Mike felt he didn't come back with many questions answered. He said that "on a tactical level the war is a gross insidious thing; neither side is right. We could have ended it long ago." I asked both Tom and 'Mike if they had any trouble readjusting to civilian life once they were discharged. Tom had little trouble readjusting but Mike said he had some trouble. Mike said that the time span from Viet Nam to California was only a matter of hours and that the changing of primary groups, that is, military life to civilian life, was so abrupt that it took some readjustment. 1I CAN REMEMBER A DAY BY MARC VOLLRATH Reflective thought is encouraged by trying and unpleasant situations. The following piece exemplifies this. It is emotion put into words, and an attempt for a silent voice to be heard by deal ears. I CAN REMEMBER A DAY was written as a protest against ignorance, forced conscription, and senseless harassment. Its mood reflects the past while being firmly anchored, unwillingly, in the "present" which the United States Army had forced upon the writer. Its specific target was militarism and the master to which every soldier is a slave — the Army. After it was written, however, it could be seen quite clearly that it reflected our entire society as well. I can remember a day when I had clothes — my own and a personality and a character What I wore told what I might be but now I have only clothes and I’m hidden by them I can’t be me but only what these clothes make me and I’m a fake they may be my size but they don’t fit I can’t put my heart into them I can remember a day When I had a mind — my own I used to think but now that could only get me into trouble I used to ask questions but now there’s no one to answer them or even to listen and besides a question shows you think and now that could only get me into trouble I can remember a day when I had a smile but that frowned away when they took my hair and gave me these clothes but, really — is a smile that important? I can remember a day when I had hair A soldier is forced to wear the uniform of his country: a businessman, however, must wear the conventional suit and tie—the uniform his sphere of society dictates. While the voice of a soldier is only as loud as the rank he wears, likewise our society will not tolerate "waves" to be created by subordinates on the totem pole of civilian life. The military boasts generals and privates, while our society has rich and poor. Just as generals won’t listen to privates, the rich of our social structure have no time for the poor. While generals control the war from behind a desk, the privates are dying on the battlefields, and while the rich men start the wars, and continue them, the poor men are forced to fight them. The comparisons could go on and on. Hopefully, someday they won't have to. If they do. we'll all have to pay for it. and didn’t think about it nor did anyone else Then it was important to develop what was inside my head instead of worrying about what was on top of it I’m glad that’s all changed because it’s so easy to have your hair cut and so difficult to think now and besides that could only get me into trouble I can remember a day when I used to question things not to harm them but to help them not just to change things but improve them if I could it’s a relief knowing I can’t because others do it for me without thinking or questioning but they’ve worn these clothes for so many years they don’t have to think and have probably forgotten how to I can remember a day when I could think and ask questions and be myself without worry because I wasn’t bad then only myself and now I’m a fake. 2DROP OUTS OR COP OUTS? BY MARC VOLLRATH With nary the sound of a single gunshot the cultural revolution began. It started as quietly as the sound of a growing hair follicle and a questioning thought. Bloodless in its conception, the growing pains are now being felt on the battlegrounds of our nation’s campuses as educated individuals question the values of the uneducated and blind conservatives. Today, anyone who questions may be stereotyped a radical, and if his hair is long — a communist. We are a society of communists. Why? Simply because many identify with this steretotyped individual — and because the “American Dream" of a status quo society is a nightmare. Some consider anything deviating from the “norm” as communist inspired. Governor Lester Maddox of Georgia even envisioned sex education in our schools as a “communist plot” to corrupt the morals of our youth. Had the American revolution of 1776 occurred two hundred years later it, too, would probably have been blamed on communists. Today, millions of people flock to church to worship perhaps the greatest radical and revolutionary of all time — Jesus Christ, who, in his time was considered a visionary, operating under the aliases of “King of the Jews,” “Son of God,” and a few others. Today, His radical teachings of yesteryear are completely acceptable. That same man, however, would have a hard time landing a teaching job in Stevens Point without His name to fall back on, because of His shoulder length hair and beard. Certainly no self respecting parent would want their son or daughter attending a school with a freak like that teaching their kids! It is, indeed, surprising that the shoulder length locks of Christ weren't sheared off the wooden replicas of Him that bedeck our present day churches in order to make Him “fit in” with present day standards. Long hair was “in” when Christ taught His radical ideas. The world wasn’t ready for Him — it crucified Him; but only for His ideas. Today, people are crucified, figuratively speaking, for both. At Stevens Point, basically conservative place that it was, hair was short enough so as not to offend anyone driving a Ford four door sedan with a “Love it or Leave it” bumper sticker. Two years ago, though, something started to happen. The “jock” image, and the short hair that goes along with that “all American” look, was no longer the desired image to flaunt. The Vietnam fiasco and the billions of dollars being poured into it caused the educated American student to question the misdirected sense of values being employed by our government. The student saw billions of dollars sent to the moon, while back here on earth our own people were starving, and no black man was really free. He also saw that no man was really free as long as he was forced to fight in a war he believed to be wrong. He saw cigarettes proven to be the cause of cancer and heart disease, yet remain on the market, while at the same time marijuana, never having been proven harmful, remained illegal. He smoked it anyway, and was a criminal for it whether caught or not. The law no longer was his friend — to be respected, but his enemy — to resent. He even questioned the existence of God. Wanting no part of the old American scene, he dropped out. Long hair was a good way to isolate himself from a straight society and, with it, he could identify as a member of the new one. He could raise the eyebrows of the older generation. He didn’t look like them, and because of it was called a faggot. His ideas were new. and because they were not understood, feared. Campus unrest became a normal occurrence. At first, peaceful demonstrations were the only occurrences. Like the “Freedom Riders” of the pre-Civil Rights era, however, they accomplished little but create a public awareness of “weirdos” protesting. To the conservative public it was regarded as “juvenile.” Violence seemed the only answer. Soon the National Guard was on campus so frequently it probably could have audited classes had it wished to. The “cause” of the questioning American student was greater in its interim than in its conception. The following had grown from handfuls to hordes. Its ideas, seemingly radical, were nothing more than the strugggle to regain lost rights — the basis of our constitution, a document that has become idealistic in fact, rather than realistic. All across the country students fought for their beliefs — some even died. These were, briefly, some of the reasons for long hair — to rebel against a society of misguided politicians who value a buck more than a human life; who think it’s more important to discover the moon isn’t really made of green cheese after all, when we still can’t even communicate with our neighbors. To this cause people dropped out and grew their hair long. Sincerity started it; now conformity may ruin it. Why? Because long hair is the “in” look and some people identify with the look rather than with the cause. Many actually oppose it. Unfortunately, the “new” society is just becoming the old one with a new look. Many who “drop out” of the old one by growing long hair still march off to “unholy wars” when their number comes up. Apathy can’t be covered by long hair — only masked. A braless woman’s chest may sag a few more inches, but if her mind isn’t free she’s still the same girl who wore the twelve dollar Playtex long line. Rejecting a two hundred dollar Hart-Schaftner Marx suit for Grundy bell bottoms is only a start. If the person that wears them isn’t doing it for any other purpose than identification, he’s still, in reality, wearing that suit. A long haired, money hungry freak playing the role of a social drop out can fool a great many people. Rock Fest promoters, for example, grasped for the fast buck by pushing “bread” hungry rock groups at an unsuspecting or uncaring public. Who are the real people under that long hair? There are no programs — so we can’t tell who are the actors. The truth is only inside of us — each of us. If we are real we know it, and if we’re fakes, we’re only kidding ourselves. 3THE DRAFT BY MARY MAHER The draft is a means of involuntary conscription, dedicated to the principle that all young men are created equal. The draft is the law and because it is the law it is a strictly enforced system, endowing every young man at the age of nineteen with a lottery number. The draft allows for only certain exemptions and regulates the use of these very closely. On the other hand, the draft is a complex mass of confusion, confounding even the brightest interpreters of the law, and subject to periodic change and revision. There are deferments and exceptions, which sometimes are one and the same, and there are certain things you must be cautious about if applying for a new classification, particularly a CO. Consequently many people subject to the draft between the ages of nineteen and twenty-six are not adequately informed on their rights under the Selective Service Act of 1967. There are draft counselors qualified to assist in alleviating some of the misunderstanding and calculated to assist you in your own interest, more so than your local Selective Service office. With this in mind, check your knowledge and determine if you need help. When a young man turns eighteen. he is expected to register at his local draft board within five days after his birthday. He fills out a simple address form and is done until several months later, when he receives in the mail a “Classification Questionnaire” which is form 100. Now the difficulties begin. He must fill this out accurately for it is on the basis of this form that he is classified when he reaches nineteen. Here he must specify marital status, give information on his family and occupation, and, also, if he hasn’t already filed for the status, claim he is a conscientious objector. He will receive additional forms in the mail pertaining to any claims such as this. In the calendar year following the calendar year he turns eighteen, the young man is in his year of “vulnerability.” He becomes part of the lottery in the year he turns nineteen and is top priority starting the next January. If his number does not come up during that first year he then goes into second priority in the second year. If he is still not called up, he is given a third year priority and so on until he reaches his twenty-sixth birthday. After the first year, there is little chance that he will be called up unless the planes start flying over Pittsburgh. If you haven’t done a double-take already, congratulations. The priority business that came with the lottery system is merely a newer means of confusing the already confused “orderliness” of the draft. Not only that, but about the middle of the year when a lot of II-S deferments ran out, those with a number that is on the borderline can take a second breath since the draft board picks up every month at the loss of deferments, particularly in June. If a young man has a deferment for his first year, his year of vulnerability is postponed until that deferment runs out. The use of deferments or exemptions, where certain omissions are made in cases concerning specific difficulties for the young man who is otherwise eligible, is an aspect of the draft that borders on a science. If you understand it well enough, it might be possible to claim any one of them with complete honesty since this is one of the more “shades of gray” features of the sometimes indiscriminate nature of the system. Some deferments have been abolished with the coming of the lottery, but if you claimed certain deferments before April 23 of 1970, they stand until expiration. These arc the Fatherhood and Occupational deferments, III-A and II-A classifications, respectively. That is, with the III-A, if the local board has been notified of a child, bom or conceived before April 23. 1970, and that child is or will be a dependent, the registrant may have a legal deferment, providing he has not filed for or received a student deferment after June 30, 1967. With the II-A, a request for exemption for necessary employment, if it was requested before April 23, 1970, the deferment is given at the discretion of the draft board. The student deferment, II-S, is of interest to many in the university situation, but there has also been a clamping down on the issuance of these. The young man must meet certain requirements in order to attain as well as retain the deferment throughout the duration of his studies. The applicant must be under the age of twenty-four. He must fill out form 104, which is a request for an Undergraduate Student deferment, and the school he is attending must complete form 109, a Student Certificate. In addition, he must be a full-time student making satisfactory progress toward graduation. There is some misunderstanding over who determines what is satisfactory progress and some guys have been hassled by their draft boards concerning this when it is actually the school that has the right to decide. It is illegal for the draft board to take that responsibility. The hitch with this ana all deferments is that when it is ended, your year of vulnerability begins and you are given an “extended liability” which makes you technically eligible until age thirty-five. Another deferment which is similar to the II-S deferment is the I-S. This covers two different academic situations. If a young man is under twenty vears of age and is attending high school full time, he is given this classification to protect him from the draft. The other possibility is a deferment until the end of the school year for an undergraduate who has been called for induction before the end of the academic year. It only defers for one year and may not be renewed. Other deferments possible are I-Y, which is a physical or mental deferment; II-C, an agricultural deferment which depends also on the April 23rd deadline; IV-B, which exempts government officials; an alien deferment, IV-C; deferment for a student of the ministry, IV-D; IV-F, not qualified for any service; and V-A, too old to serve. These are all classifications that are alternatives to a I-A classification, and should be looked into with the aid of a draft counselor since it will otherwise result in ultimate confusion. The other possible "deferments” that have seen some use of late are the two forms of the conscientious objector classifications I-A-0 or I-O. Out of the total 22,168,782 current registrants, 28,188 have CO status. It has become a popular business and subsequently a difficult and of course confusing process. First of all, the CO’s stand is that he feels wfar is wrong, for religious or non-religious reasons. The basis for his acceptance is his sincerity. The CO is not a draft dodger since he does alternate service of some kind. Therefore the CO status is actually not a deferment but a recognized objection to war and an unwillingness to kill. A CO cannot be selective about the wars he would fight and in his appearance before the board, he is 4tested on this with such questions as, “Do you think Israel should defend itself?”, “If a nation suffers unprovoked attack, should it not defend itself?”, "Should we let the communists suppress the Vietnamese people?” In filing for the status, the young man must fill out a special form 150 for conscientious objectors which requires written justification of his belief and references of people who will give information concerning the nature of his religious training and beliefs. It is wise to seek the assistance of a draft counselor in applying for the CO status, since there is much involved here and unless a young man knows his rights and choices, there could be a mix-up that might result in an unnecessary prison sentence or a hitch in the Army. The registrant mav file for a personal appearance but must do so within 30 days of the mailing of his classification. This time period cannot be extended except in cases where a courtesy transfer may be made to a more conveniently located draft board. The careful manipulating of a personal appearance to appeal a classification is all important. The registrant should review any other appearance he’s made to sight difficulties encountered. He should look over and be familiar with all of the forms and information previously received from his draft board. He should know his story and his rights. This is his chance to change the board’s decision and present any new material pertinent to his claim. It is a must for all registrants, for their own safety and regardless of the status or claim, to maintain copies of everything sent to the local board and everything received from them. Every statement should be in writing and all appearances should be objectively recorded afterwards. The draft board should always be notified of any changes that might occur affecting status. If a registrant qualifies for any other deferment, this will be considered before an 1-0 classification. There are two separate forms of CO classification which allow for increased variety in the draft system. The 1-0 is one most people are aware of. It allows for alternate service in civilian work which means hospitals or other non-profit organizations or government work. It must be a continuous 24 month job, with exceptions. The I-A-0 classification is given when the specifications for appeal require only that no weapons be used. This is a CO available for noncombatant duty only. He spends his two years in the military but is assigned to medical tasks such as a medic in a combat unit. He is trained as vigorously as an I-A, but is not required to pick up a gun. The balance of his training takes place at the Medical Training Center, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Finally, it is necessary when giving or receiving information about the draft to realize the nature of its flexibility. Certain laws make it impossible for all facts to remain in effect continually and it is conceivable that any of it could be outdated at any time. For instance, by the time this is published, CO’s with an 1-0 classification may be in for three years instead of two. The draft is a difficult system to fight and for those who wish to do so or for those who merely wish to know more about what to expect, several books are very helpful. The Central Committee for Conscien- tious Objectors puts out the Handbook for Conscientious Objectors, edited by Arlo Tatum, which ex-lains much more thoroughly what as been delved into here. Tatum also puts out, with Joseph S. Tuchinsky, a Guide to the Draft, explaining in plain English all the essential aspects of the draft. Both these publications and other valuable services are available at the Stevens Point Draft Information Service at 1125 Fremont. Reverend Richard Steffen will assist interested young men who find it applicable to have assistance and advice on the draft. So don’t believe everything heard through the grapevine. Turn to sources that are reliable in inter-reting the draft. It’s a system that as no equal in confusion or in the consequences to a young man’s life. Use it with caution.

As stated in the 1968 catalog. “WSU-SP and the United States Army will jointly offer military training leading to a commission as an officer in the Regular Army or the reserve components of the Army.” The ROTC program has been under consideration for this campus since February 2, 1966, when Dr. Kurt R. Schmeller, Assistant to the President, inquired of Robert S. McNamara. Secretary of Defense, regarding the establishment of a ROTC program here. At that time only one such program existed in the WSU system which was an Air Force ROTC unit at Superior, initiated in 1947. From Schmeller, the matter was handed to Acting President Haferbecker, May 23, 1967. At this time Colonel John R. McLean, Professor of Military Science at UW-Madison and ROTC coordinator for the Fifth Army indicated an interest in opening up additional units on WSU campuses. Acting on this request, Haferbecker on May 26 wrote to the Commanding General of the Fifth Army stating in part “We know that the students generally in the Wisconsin State Universities would like to see such programs established on several of our campuses.’' Further information and an application was received. The Academic Council at WSU-SP voted on June 19, 1967, 12 in favor, 2 opposed, to support the application of the university for a ROTC unit here in the fall of 1969. At a regular faculty meeting on October 5, 1967, Haferbecker reported on the application for ROTC. A motion that the faculty recommend withdrawal of the application by the Acting President was discussed at length. The motion was defeated, however, by a vote of 93 to 68. On November 24, 1967, notice was received from the Secretary of the Army, Stanley R. Resor, that WSU-SP had been selected as a senior ROTC unit. Enrollment was to begin for the fall semester. 1968. On January 30, 1968, Haferbecker appointed 6 faculty members and 1 student senate representative to a Special ROTC Curriculum Committee. This committee held several open meetings between February 12 and March 27. On April 5, 1968. the committee submitted its recommendations to the Faculty Curriculum Committee which approved the ROTC curriculum proposals on April 17. Copies of the proposals were distributed to the entire faculty. The ROTC curriculum was considered by the faculty at its regular meeting of May 2, 1968. After extended discussion, the curriculum was approved by a vote of 67 to 52. The ROTC curriculum was offered concurrently with regular undergraduate courses in the fall, 1968. The curriculum provided a course of military training consisting of two years basic and two years advanced study. As stated in the 1968 catalog: “The training is designed to prepare students to enter their military service in a leadership capacity as commissioned officers and to lay the foundation for future Army leaders in time of emergency.” During the advanced course the cadets receive an allowance of $50.00 per month. During a six-week advanced summer camp period the cadet is paid $208.00 per month, based on one-half the pay received by a 2nd lieutenant. A student may apply during his sophomore year for the advanced course. A six-week basic summer camp previous to the junior year satisfies the two-year basic course requirement for those who are not enrolled in ROTC during the freshman and sophomore years. Cadets who complete the ROTC program receive 16 ROTC credits applicable towara a degree. In the fall of 1968 the Military Science Department had four faculty members. ROTC enrollment at the beginning of the semester was approxmiately 200 freshmen in the basic course and 14 in the advanced course. Approximately 125 freshmen remained at the close of the semester. Eleven seniors comprised the first ROTC graduating class in spring, 1970. In the fall semester, 1970, the ROTC program enrolled approximately 140 freshmen and retained a total of approximately 65 upperclassmen. Four faculty members remained. No major changes have been made in the program since its initiation. ROTC also offers extra-curricular activities to its members, the largest organizations being the Pershing Rifles and the Rangers. ROTC also sponsors a Military Ball each spring. Currently, ROTC senior units exist on approximately 279 United States campuses. Approximately 750 junior units are in operation at the high school level. ROTC enrollment at the college level has generally declined over the nation during the last few years. However, possible increases are in sight with proposals to raise the ROTC scholarship quota and to double the monthly allowance to $100.00. Lee Sherman Dreyfus, WSU-SP President, currently represents the Fifth Army on the Army Advisory Panel on ROTC Affairs to which he was appointed in October, 1969. 6MILITARISTIC AND PACIFISTIC - - - IRRATIONAL? BY LAURA THILL CATHIE MORTENSON NANCY CORDY War is a game people have been playing since time began. At first, war was recognized as a survival game. One individual possessed a necessity which another individual wanted. The result was a fight to acquire a desired object — at any and all expense. Next, war became a game of "you have it and I want it.” War then progressed to a game of corporate interest and business ethics. The contemporary position which war maintains may appear precarious but the inevitability of war still exists and will continue to exist until human beings adopt a more satisfactory method of solving their disputes. The guidelines for the war game are not structured by the gun and bomb or knife and blood format. War involves any dispute, psychological or physical, between two human beings. In an attempt to present several divergent views on war and peace, or militarism verus pacifism on this campus, interviews were conducted with Lt. Col. Neil O'Keefe of the Military Science Department: James Missey of the English Department: and David Wrone of the History Department. The inverviews were conducted separately to avoid rhetorical debate. The general format of the questions presenter! to the three men were essentially the same. Changes occurred only where a question was’not applicable to the particular interviewee. IRIS: What made you choose the military as a career? O’KEEFE: Having entered the service as an ROTC graduate. I found that the responsibilities given to me as a commissioned officer were challenging and the positions held, interesting and rewarding. Military life appealed to me in most all respects. Therefore, based upon actual experience. I chose to make the service my career. Although pay and other benefits are not as great as found in many other professional fields, they are adequate. One particularly attractive aspect, of course, is the opportunity to travel and meet other people from different lands and cultures. There is also a sense of pride and satisfaction that one feels in serving our country, which is much the same as that realized bv teachers, doctors, politicians and other similar vocations. The past 19 years on active service have been most gratifying and satisfying, and. because of these and many other favorable qualities. I would certainly select the same profession again, given the opportunity to do so. IRIS: What incident or incidents caused you to follow-pacifism? MISSEY: I suppose I was first turned on to pacifism when, as a freshman in college. I was rather active in the Methodist Church. I met a number of people in that context. both students and ministers, who favorably impressed me by the qualities of their lives: and so I was in a sense forced to examine their beliefs and to revaluate my own spekticism concerning pacifism. I should add that, though I was first introduced to pacifism within Christianity. I do not believe the doctrine of nonviolence (which I tend to use interchangeably with pacifism) is confined to that religion: indeed. I no longer call mself a Christian. NEIL L. O'KEEFE r LIEUTENANT COLONEL. Corps oP Engine |u •PROFESSOR OF MILITARY SCIEMCE 7IRIS: Whore did your interest in the irrational originate? WRONE: My development of aware- ness of the question of peace and war gradually emerged out of scholarly pursuits on the source of the irrational in modern society. IRIS: What is your opinion of the current “peace movement"? Do you think it is effective? MISSEY: The peace movement, of course, is a mixed bag: some | arts of what many people think to be the peace movement are not anti-war but anti-imperialist. In any case. I do not support those elements of the anti-war movement which condone violence, for violence doesn't stop violence but only extends its area. Nor do I support the moderate wing of the movement, which believes in petitioning and writing letters of the government and in electing so-called peace candidates to office. People need to take a much more active control of their lives, including the making of peace. Hence, what I do support is vigorous, nonviolent direct action, like draft resistance, war-tax resistance, fasting, strike's, boycotts, and nonviolent obstruction of violence. As to whether I think the peace movement has been effective, it’s very difficult to say. On the one hand, the Indochina War has not been stopped, but on the other hand the War might've been greatly escalated on both sides if there had not been a strong peace movement in this country to check our government. (The movement's ability to restrain the war-making of our government has indirectly been a brake on the other side.) But the questions of effectiveness are ultimately not the right questions, even though some of the things I said in the preceding paragraph may imply that I think effectiveness is an important consideration. One can never know what the consequences of an act will be. so that whether to commit the act must be determined in terms of its intrinsic rightness or wrongness rather than in terms of what its effects will be. WRONE: I group the peace movement with the military and feel it is possessed of precisely similar principles that would require lengthy discussion for a full understanding of the point. To my mind, the peace movement with its historical antecedents largely accounts for the continued existence of war. In addition to a failure to be well read, peace advocates center in false questions such as the role of the individual in society, the crude emoting over men and incidenfs and the worship of their ideas like a revealed religion. Their (peace advocates) definition of peace is false and what they seek and call peace is not peace. But. if one’s heart and mind are suffused with the cause, all criticism must be mistaken, they aver. O'KEEFE: The question is very broad. The divergent views of the many people who are. in varying degrees, associated with the peace movement are often complex and frequently contradictory. We must be very circumspect about generalizations. My guess is. however, that for every "member” who is sincere. informer! and motivated by the highest ideals, there is a corrupt counterpart whose motives are false, deceitful or even sinister. Are they effective? To the extent that their agitation makes us think, invites self-examination, makes us review our positions, there is a great deal of good done. But “they" should do the same. I have no doubt that the movement, on occasion, has harmed the "public interest" of the United States and the so-called "Free World." Constructive criticism should be their goal. IRIS: What is your opinion of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia? WRONE: America is in Southeast Asia to impose an American empire and develop a bastion from which to continue a twenty-five year old attack upon Red China. "Democracy" and “freedom" are hollow dogma to allow the intellectuals and liberals to apologize for the attack and a method of brainwashing the American public. Needless to state, we do not require an empire to maintain a decent American life; we need one to maintain a military machine to attack China. I also “feel" the thrust of Jim Garrison's book. Heritage of Stone, is sound: Military-business groups murdered John Kennedy because he was stopping the American military and withdrawing us (America) from Southeast Asia. O’KEEFE: The answer to the question of whether we should have intervened in Viet Nam or not will be discussed. debated and argued for many years to come. I'm sure certain decisions made by Presidents Eisenhower. Kennedy and Johnson would have been different if it were possible to view the entire situation in retrospect. No matter what has taken place in the past. I do think now is the time for the United States to disengage. MISSEY: It’s wrong. IRIS: Do you favor the troop withdrawal as an effective means of ending the war? Why or why not? O'KEEFE: I believe President Nixon's timetable will end. or all but end. U.S. ground participation in Viet Nam. This plan is rational, feasible and desirable. Accordingly, by June. 1972. only a relatively small number of American troops will remain and the burden of self-defense will be properly borne by South Vietnamese troops. We have bought them time, and I feel history will bear this out. Hopefully, the North Vietnamese will be reluctant to deal with a strengthened South and will seek negotiation. WRONE: I view this question dif- ferently than the militant and social pacifists. I would neither fight nor pull out. I would change the present organizational structure in Viet Nam from one for war to one for genuine peace. I would pump $100 billion into Viet Nam and move in a million more men and make that distant area, when we finished, the finest place to live on the face of the earth. And. it would be Viet Nam for the Vietnamese. I would use unemployed engineers, technicians, craftsmen and scientists, sustained by the military supply systems to build good, true and extremely beautiful roads, homes, hospitals, libraries, parks and so forth. We, as a nation, have the capacity to do this. Certainly we have the idealism. This would help remove the guilt upon the nation's conscience caused by that bitter conflict. You note I did not mention the educational system of Viet Nam. I would leave that entirely to the Vietnamese as we have no one in America capable to advise them or to assist them in building a good system. MISSEY: I believe we should immediately and unconditionally withdraw from Indochina because it would be morally right to do so. As to whether or not our withdrawal would end the war. I cannot say with absolute certainty; though I'm pretty certain that it would. Ideally, the decision to withdraw should be made by the men in the 8field, who should, rather than waiting for orders on high, lay down their arms and embrace the Indochinese as friends rather than fight them as enemies. IRIS: What are your opinions of the proposed volunteer armed forces? Do you think it will professionalize and or improve our armed forces? O’KEEFE: The Army has been directed to move full speed towards a modern volunteer Army. This will not happen overnight. In order to achieve this goal, the Army will have to make drastic increases in regular enlistments, re-enlistments and the number of volunteers in the Army reserves and National Guard. A three-fold program has been intiated recently, that of improving professionalism, service attractiveness and public esteem. It is evident that effective efforts which will help us achieve a volunteer Army will have to include good pay. good benefits, good housing, good morale and public respect. There are many things we will need if we are to reach our goal, but none of these needs is more important than the support of the American people. Regardless of changes made within the Army, our goals will not be met unless we receive support from the Administration, the Congress, news media. civic, business, education and religious leaders, and the general public. To those who say the Army is dreaming the impossible dream when talking about an all-volunteer Army. I say. this is our quest, and we invite your help as we move towards this goal. As long as the President and Congress expressly desire an all-volunteer Army, then I feel maximum effort should be made to achieve this objective. MISSEY: I’m opposed to an armed forces, volunteer or otherwise. If violence is wrong, it doesn't become right simply because someone has volunteered to commit it or take part in it. I don't believe that the state, however, which rests on violence, (armed forces, police, jails, and so forth.) can make the decision to do away with armed forces: I believe that decision must be made by individuals by their refusal to co- operate with militarism in any form. As to whether a volunteer system would professionalize the armed forces. I can’t say. I don't think it would improve the armed forces, however. For how can you improve that which is basically wrong? If something is wrong, you should try to eliminate it (through non-cooperation, not through violence), not improve it so as to make the wrong thing more palatable. WRONE: Never have I thought about it. IRIS: How do you feel about stu- dents wearing issued clothing, such as field jackets, jump boots, etc., even though they have no military affiliation and might, in fact, be opposed to the military? MISSEY: Let people wear what they want to. What counts is not what they wear but how they act. WRONE: This is looking at force again. If the clothes fit. are clean and the students find them useful for watching tellv. drinking, playing pool and study, they ought wear them. Actually, the military ought to provide free to all college students properly fitting shoes study clothes, and dental, medical and laundry facilities Military men are experts in this field of supply and could do a handsome job of mainlining young men and women who are often from impoverished families or inadequate financial background. O'KEEFE: Although in certain instances it tends to degrade a uniform we are all proud to wear, it is obviously nothing but today's fad. All societies go through change and each generation does its thing. I am not overly concerned personally, but 1 would rather not see a situation where a definite attempt is made to debase the uniform or parts thereof. (Three questions concerning the New Army were directed to O'Keefe which were not presented to Misscy or Wrone. We feel that these questions are important to O'Keefe’s position and should be included here.) IRIS: What, if any, long range advantages. other than in the military, do you think an ROTC graduate has over a non-ROTC graduate? O'KEEFE: I feel the RTOC officer's total military experience is definitely applicable to a civilian career. During his tour on active duty he has developed a working knowledge of leadership, personal management, accountability and general business practice. The ROTC graduate has assignments, while in the military, of increased responsibilities, a chance to exercise judgment and make sound decisions. All these assets will benefit the individual upon his return to a civilian profession, no matter what it may be. The experience acquired in just two years of active military service is a significant factor to any future employer requiring an individual possessing managerial and supervisory attributes. IRIS: How do you feel about the relaxed standards of military life. i.c.. beer in the barracks, longer hair, and elimination of reveille, etc.? O’KEEFE: We live in a changing world: our society is constantly changing. The armed forces should reflect this change. A great deal of study and thought have gone into this area, and most military personnel will agree with the changes made in terms of style, elimination of unproductive work and barracks conditions. I will never agree to relax necessary discipline, and I do not believe we have done so. Don't forget, the Army is committed to establishing an all-volunteer Army at the President's directions. At this point in time, given the enormous changes in society, culture, style, etc., it certainly seems appropriate to review current policies. IRIS: In connection with this, do you feel that the military is doing this because of pressure from civilian and student protest or do you think that the decision came completely from the Defense Department? O'KEEFE: As I stated, the armed forces should reflect the society they represent. How much pressure civilian and student protest has had would be hard to determine. As I mentioned above, in going to an all-volunteer Army, a review must be made of all policies affecting personnel, and those that no longer serve any rational purpose should be changed. This is what the Department of Defense has done. and. consequently. personnel policies have been changed and I'm sure others now under study will be changed in the future. (The purpose of this article was not meant to slant student opinion for or against any of these men or their views presented by the questions addressed to them. We feel that all of their opinions are important and relevant and should all have equal consideration in solving current problems. We also wish to emphasize the views presented are only three alternatives of the extremes of thought of the war and | eace issue on this campus.) 9REFLECTIONS ON THE STUDENT AND PEACE BY DAVID R. WRONE EDITOR'S NOTE: David R. Wrone, a professor of History at WSU-Stevens Point, reflects in this essay on the issue of the student and the semantics of war and peace. For the student to understand all that war and peace involves, he must devote time and maintain a realistic approach to the issues, then take a stand, according to Wrone. A unique aspect of the modem era has been the emergence of highly organized corporate bodies. As these corporate bodies have grown, modem thought has moved in a different manner. The philosophical and other thought systems have drawn away from the objective realities and developed abstract concepts. A cleavage between the world in which we live and the mind is characteristic of the modem era. We today have a corporate body with the possibilities for a decent life for all, but possess a weak mind. One of the corporate bodies by the new order of things has been the military. To maintain a society of privilege based on class, caste, power and prestige, the political systems controlling the industrial bodies utilized an ancient idea of war and force and perfected it highly. The elaborate military system which resulted includes all types of objects — armament, music, medals, rank, traditions, military theory and armies — constructed in a relational system directed toward the end of killing and maintenance by force of restricted access to the property system. The principal of force regulates every relation holding within the 10vast system and gives purpose to its aim or end. Citizens moved into this established system of military relations, became an integral part, sustained its principles and values, and then departed. Long after an individual has left, the corporate body remains intact, vital, and continues to act, having an existence quite apart from any person. The overwhelming mass of men who participated in and who are presently participants are good men and possess a high degree of integrity. They are, however, sustained by and have their vital existence in the military system; they incorporate and embody its principles even to death. They and all their public duties are military in nature. From time to time in the brief history of America, the good qualities of these men have issued in noble acts and the military institution has served during peace time as an instrument of genuine reform — for example. J. Pershing in the Moros Islands in 1906 and S. Butler in Haiti in 1916. But the elements mix, in corporate bodies as well as in men, and each instance of military reform of society draws out of and fuses with other vital cultural principles — as with Pershing’s use of medicine, agriculture, and town planning. Today, as so often in the past, the decent qualities within military men are submerged and suborned by the system of relations in which they must stand as military men and in which they have their being. The principles of privilege impede their participation in the Good and tend to thwart the issuance of a genuine cultural act. Military men are not, however, fully responsible for the moralless, or amoral, situation in which they knowingly or unknowingly find themselves. The abstract thought systems of the intellectual sustain the core postulates of the military system. While we could mention the aspects of several theories and positions in most fields of scholarly endeavor that do this, we shall mention only an example from history. A great dogma exists in the cultural sphere that war has been a creative force in modern American history. The dogma holds that force and military systems have been a necessary quality in the emergence and greatness of American life. Despite the acceptance of this belief by the dominant schools of thought, there is not a fact to support the apologia. In no manner, shape, or form did any American war create a positive factor, serve a human end, or contribute to our genuine vitality as a free and thriving nation. This statement includes the 180 invasions of small countries, 3,000 Indian fights, and the British, Mexican, Russian. Spanish, Japanese, Cuban, German, Korean, and Vietnam wars. It would also include the 5,000 instances of force against American labor. The Civil War, for example, did not free the slaves and World War II had little to do with the suppression of the Nazi doctrine. Obviously, in a sever-ly truncated argument of the nature of this reflection, we can only suggest the general line of approach that is elaborated more fully elsewhere. Our great national vitality comes despite the wars and the use of force, not because of it, and the abstract scholarly dogma merely provides solace and dignity and apologia for the military system. The appeal of the military system to history for its validity is an appeal to myth. In addition to the dogma of history, the cleavage between modem thought and corporeity of modern life is seen in pacifist thought. An examination of the vast literature on pacifism reveals the abstract and contradictory nature of their thought, leading pacifists to ends other than the ones they ardently aspire to. Most pacifists seldom define what is meant by peace, and those few who do frequently add little. Precisely what is this peace they seek in concrete terms of the world? Peradventure, it is a more rofound concept than pacifists ave thought it to be. Modem advocates of disputes largely connect with a negative definition of peace, at least this thought dominates the literature. Characteristic elements of the definition seem to lie in the feeling that peace centers mainly in persons, that it is a state of mind and that it requires exemplars and magic to obtain. Pacifists attempt to achieve peace by converting the mental states of men from military to peace. They must somehow find a way to get into the minds of men in order to cause or activate the peaceful qualities there. This is achieved first of all through magic — the use of paper with writing (a petition) presented to people to change their minds; the use of symbolism, such as a sign waved in front of people’s eyes to get into their mental states; walking around objects several times (picket). They also use special potions, formulae, and activity to get into minds — such as fasting, where their hungry belly becomes the means of access to another person’s mind. Of course, the fallacy is the presupposition of the existence of the mind as subjective. Fail- ing in the use of magic, their activities largely center on removing or eliminating persons within the military system as the only certain way to get jjeace. But the corporate system sustains its active life apart from the people comprising it. Further, the persons they wish to remove, on close examination, turn out to be rather decent people caught by a system. Also, if they do knock out the bad guy or devil, like LBJ, they get another one in his place, like Nixon, and the war(s) go on. The pacifists appear to be accomplishing little, for the wars go on and the decay within the nation appears to be increasing. Many have an adamantine position that one must act, give personal testament as to the true nature of his or her mental state. But this overlooks a basic fact. People in the final analysis do not act; only institutions act. They show little awareness of the nature of a cultural act. Of course, they raise a lot of dust; and it is certainly not the point of these desultory comments that pacifists cannot raise a lot of dust, but they cannot stop war or achieve peace. The military system and the dominant group of pacifists, it seems to me, have basic things in common. They both use a form of force to achieve their ends. The military use is obvious. The pacifists use force in the negation of the person in the military position. The denial of the human quality is precisely similar to the military’s use of force to reduce people to inert atoms by refusing them relational access to the Good. On this end, and on many other issues, the pacifists seem to hold to force as a principle to use to deny the validity of force in modern society. What strikes the observer of the current peace scene is the great stirring within the student bodies toward a, as yet undefined, peaceful world. There are great tasks to be accomplished but they all require arduous, genuine scholarship and hard study to achieve. Only a tiny handful of men and women presently are at work. Students have a splendid opportunity (denied to a system of force) to develop intellectual inquiry into the great problems of a peaceful world. All our old myths and dogmas have to be re-examined to provide a realistic base for the future; all the terms such as peace, war and action have to be clearly defined and their meanings made concrete in the lives of men. The true pacifist is a scholar. 11Miss Stevens Point Pageant BY PAULA TORGESON On March 27, 1971, the community of Stevens Point watched as ten university coeds competed for the title of Miss Stevens Point. The pageant, held in WSU-Main Auditorium, was highlighted by colorful staging and the vitality of the University Players as they provided three musical arrangements involving the theme “Magic Carousel.” Miss Sharon Singstock. Miss Wisconsin 1965, performed the duties of Mistress of Ceremonies. The audience, composed of families. friends, and well-wishers of the contestants, viewed the finalists in evening gowns and bathing suits. It also delighted in the enthusiasm exhibited bv the contestants as each performed her particular talent presentation. Dancing, singing, and floor routines were all part of the pageantry. Finally, more than a month of lengthy rehearsals and unselfish endeavor on the part of the Stevens Point Jaycees and other civic organizations culminated that night when the judges chose Miss Patti Jacobs as the new Miss Stevens Point. She is a freshman from Wauwatosa, majoring in drama. Patti sang and danced to the tune “On A Clear Day" for her talent presentation. The ten finalists pose in front of the judges during the Evening Gown competition. They are from left to right: Dottie Howlett, Judy Caldwell, Shawn Granger, Nancy Schmidt, Christine Johnson, R. Candie Erickson, Sue Anderson, Patti Jacobs, Shirley Badke and Miriam Olson. Shawn Granger, first runner-up in the pageant, entertains the audience with a lively folk dance to the song “Zorba the Greek." Patti Jacobs, along with the other finalists, parades in swim suit for the judges. Only memories are left for Sandra Kay Peotter as she relinquishes to Patti Jacobs her crown and position as official Hostess of Stevens Point. 12PATTI JACOBS 13 Miss Stevens Point. 1971The Magic Flute presented by the Music and Drama Departments was directed by Ronald Combs.

The company of one hundred includes an entire dance ensemble, a brilliant, chorus, an orchestra of “bayan” accordions and balalaikas, and unique comic bear-actors. The audience enjoyed their version of an American cowboy ballad "Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie,” along with the Russian and Siberian folk songs, dances and love songs. 15Viewed with mixed reactions by the audience was the quite unusual Meredith Monk and the House. The program explained: “The house is a group of artists, actors, dancers, and a scientist who are committed to performance as a means of expression and as a means of personal and hopefully, social evolution. Our work is full of remembered things and dreamed things and felt things and things that aren’t seen and things that are seen outside and things that are only seen inside. There are things which we don’t know about each other.” 16 1I I The Lark was the first play to be presented in the new Warren Jenkins Theater. It was directed by Robert Baruch.

Is aggressive behavior learned? Does the upper class rule, and are thus the instigators of war? What role does the media play in condoning violence? Do the young follow their parents' political beliefs? Is there really a "military mind"? How strong is nationalism? If any, or all, of these questions intrigue you, satisfactory answers may be found in any one of the three new courses added to the curriculum for the spring semester 1970-71 on a subject very pertinent to all of us: Peace. The courses were designed to find alternatives to violence and war, along with analyzing economic, political, social, psychological, and biological forces which result in violent behavior. In order to meet these goals in the three-credit Peace Studies 10, instructors from different social sciences were employed. Each met with the class for a maximum of two weeks. The list of lecturers included Robert Coppinger: Anthropology; Charles Garth: Sociology; Donald Dietrich and William Skelton; History; Dennis Elsenrath: Psychology; Mukul Asher: Economics; William Kelly: Communications; and John Morser: Political Science. Peace Studies 1 and 100 (taken on pass-fail and for one credit) consisted not only of guest lecturers from the faculty and administra- tion, but also films and other media. Since the program first won approval in January, things were unclear as to overall objectives and goals. A bigger budget and more courses, six altogether, are on the agenda for the fall semester. Charles Rumsey of the History department, who is coordinating Peace Studies 10, stated that the planning committee hoped to cover all material pertaining to the War and Peace issue that was not handled in other departments closely related; such as sociology and political science. This would enable the student to obtain a complete picture. Learning and becoming informed in a college course is a huge factor toward steps for peace. Community action would not be advisable, insofar as he sees antagonistic feelings toward students already in a small town like Stevens Point. According to Albert Siegel in Violence and Aggression Are Not Inevitable, physical force and interpersonal abuse are rarely used by educated, competent, and capable individuals. Thus, an educated public, free from despair and incompetence, would be able to take steps toward a world for peace.

This poll was available to all students for a period of one week. Jan. 13-20, and was handed out and collected at the University Center. This survey centered on responses dealing with sex and drugs, a subject of interest and immediate concern to people not only as students, but as members of a rapidly changing society. The total response to the poll uxis 892 students — approximately 10% of the WSU-Stevcns Point population. This was broken down by sex, by class, and finally by age groups. Any statements made or conclusions drawn in this article relate to the results of the poll — a poll in which the only "right" or "wrong" answers are determined by the individual. all wet in its stand on birth control. You feel that grass should be legalized and chances are you have smoked it. Hard drugs rate two big goose eggs in your book — you’ve never tried them and want them outlawed so no one else will, either. Your biggest bitch about WSU-SP is its overcrowdedness. Are you a “typical" WSU student who responded to the opinion poll? If you are, you believe in premarital sex, are not a virgin and are unattached to any one individual. You have experienced sexual intercourse out of marriage more than four times, but with only one partner. Besides this, you more than likely practice birth control. The odds are that you are probably a Protestant. That doesn’t mean much, however, because you don’t attend church regularly anyway. You are also firm in your conviction that the Catholic Church is The above “typical student” was the prodigy of a combination of all the results from both men and women polled. A typical freshman girl, according to the poll, was anything but “typical” of the "typical” student. Though she might secretly condone premarital intercourse, almost 70% of the time she’ll be a virgin. A senior girl on the other hand was much more in favor of premarital intercourse and the chances that she was a virgin dropped to about 30%. The sophomore and junior women showed an evolution leading toward more sexual leniency as they approached the senior level. However, of those girls who had experienced sexual intercourse at all, 85% had experienced it more than 4 times, 10% had experienced it 2-3 times, with the remaining 5% being the one timers. Sexual intercourse, based on a partnership principle, found a wide variation in the contractors employed. 66% of the male population polled had experienced intercourse with four or more partners. The female segment of the campus population polled was not near- ly as free in dispensing its favors as was the male. If a girl was under 21 the odds were 2-3 that she had had sexual intercourse with more than one partner. Of those 21 and older, however, the balance switched. Girls of that age group who completed the poll showed a marked increase in the percentages. 40% of those who had sexual intercourse at all had shared it with at least four or more partners. Point’s freshmen men, as expected, proved to be the least “promiscuous” male class on campus. Freshmen 20 and below tallied 40.3% virgins, while of freshmen men 21 years of age and older. 33% were virgins. Sophomore men under 21 totaled 37% virgins, while those chaste individuals over the legal liquor age dropped in number to 12%. A total of 33% of junior males reported being virgins, while only 18% of the senior men fell into this class. Interest in religion, according to those who took the poll, would make Mother Superior wince. Approximately 60% of students under 21 no longer attend church regularly, while of those students over 21, 72% found organized religion uninteresting enough to stay away from regular attendance. Approximately 8% of those students polled admitted being atheists, while another 9% stated that they were agnostics. Birth control, as dictated by theRoman Catholic Church, permits only the use of the rhythm method of birth control or complete abstinence. On this stand the students of WSU were in agreement that this is an outdated and unreal policy. 94.8% of those students taking the poll were in agreement that the Catholic Church is wrong for taking the stand it does — a stand which is the fuse in the population bomb. Marijuana, the weed with its roots in hell, seemed to be closer to heaven than to hades to a majority of the student population. 65% of all students polled favored its legalization, while approximately 53% of those students surveyed had already used it. Males were the more avid smokers, with 64% having admitted using it. Females seemed to be the more hesitant users, for only about 42% of them admitted having smoked any. Ironically, though, the women were more approving of its legalization than were the men. 68% of the girls thought the law should keep off the grass, while 65% of the men felt that way. Hard drugs were strongly frowned upon by the majority of the student population. Only about 8% of all students felt that illegal hard drugs should be legalized. According to the poll, though, almost twice that amount stated they had tried hard drugs. 58% of males under 21 said they resented present day drug laws. Only about 40% of all men over 21, however, felt the same resentment. 33% of all girls, regardless of age, felt resentment for law enforcement because of existing drug laws. Finally, about 68% of the males reported being unattached. Nearly 60% of the female population of WSU-SP claimed that they were unattached, too. Junior men under 21 years of age proved to be the most “unattached” portion of the campus population, with 88% claiming no binding ties to any one girl. By the time a junior man turned 21, however, i seemed more than likely his free and fancy days were behind him as only 40% remained unspoken for. Apparently a lot of freshmen girls must have returned high school rings to their original owners, for they remained the freest of the fair sex with almost 65% claiming no allegiance to one particular male. Sophomore girls showed almost the same figures regarding availability for dates. But by the time a girl had reached her junior year the odds that love had not left its imprint on her heart were about even. By her senior year she was either desperate or involved, with only 1 in 3 left to be dated or hustled. The remaining majority were either married, engaged, pinned or spoken for in some way, shape, or form. The complaints the students had about WSU-SP, according to the w ® poll, were somewhat diversified. The general grievance, however, was the overcrowded condition that now exists on the campus. On-campus parking of cars also fit into that category and received a large num-er of complaints. A large number of students felt that too many faculty members were apathetic in numerous areas. This lack of involvement was at least partially responsible for the high rate of apathy among students regarding such things as overpopulation, the war, campus functions, and academics in general. Some students also felt that the new format of the Iris was not desirable to them and should be changed back to a regular yearbook style. A large number also felt that the Pointer was not worthy of being the campus newspaper any longer. The reasons given were that it considers things which are campus oriented as being irrelevant to students. Students felt that world news was bcsf covered in regular daily newspapers and that the Pointer should stick closer to the campus rather than try and interpret what is happening around the world. Other interesting complaints appearing in the poll were: there aren’t enough trees on campus, there were no response areas for homosexuals on the poll, and that too much red tape exists in the University system.' V ► The day never seems long enough for any of us to do all he or she wishes. All of us borrow time from the night and the darkness it brings. Some relish the darkness because it hides them. Others seek its solitude and peace for quiet and rest. A few revel in the activity and bustle of dorm living after the day is done, while most seem to need the extra hours of the night to put the mind to learning. Yet all night people seem to seek the bright lights and noise of other places, at least occasionally. Night finds them at bars, coffee houses, restaurants; attending parties, concerts, lectures; involved in raps, or eyeing the opposite sex. Here is how the camera of the Iris viewed each of us in our many night lives, for WSU-SP and its students are not the same in the davlight as they arc — AFTER DARK . . . “Hello darkness my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again . . .”PENALTY FOR SIMPLE POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA (FIRST OFFENSE) ALABAMA ALASKA ARIZONA ARKANSAS CALIFORNIA COLORADO CONNECTICUT DELAWARE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA FLORIDA GEORGIA HAWAII IDAHO ILLINOIS INDIANA IOWA KANSAS KENTUCKY LOUISIANA MAINE MARYLAND MASSACHUSETTS MICHIGAN MINNESOTA MISSISSIPPI MISSOURI 5-20 years and may he fined up to $20,000 Up to 1 year and or up to $1,000 Up to 1 year in the county jail or up to $1,000 or 1 to 10 years in the state prison, at the discretion of the court 2-5 years and up to $2,000 1- 10 years in the state prison or up to 1 year in the county jail 2- 15 years and up to $10,000 Up to 1 year and or up to $1,000 or up to 3 years in the house of correction. at the discretion of the court Up to 2 years and up to $500 Up to 1 year and or $100-$ 1.000 Up to 5 years and or up to $5,000 2-5 years and up to $2,000 Up to 5 years Up to 10 years Up to 1 year and or up to $1,500 (for possession of less than 2.5 grams) 2-10 years and up to $1,000 Up to 6 months and or up to $1,000 Up to 1 year 2-10 years and up to $20,000 1 year and or $500 Up to 11 months and up to $1,000 2-5 years and up to $1,000 Up to 2V4 years in jail or house of correction or up to 3V4 years in the state prison or up to $1,000 Up to 10 years and up to $5,000 5-20 years and up to $10,000 2-5 years and up to $2,000 6 months to 1 year in the county jail or up to 20 years in the state correctional institution, at the discretion of the court MONTANA NEBRASKA 7 days in jail and the offender must complete an educative course on drugs (for possession of less than 8 ounces or less than 25 marijuana cigarettes) NEVADA NEW HAMPSHIRE 1-6 years and up to $2,000 Up to I year and or up to $500 (for possession of less than 1 pound) NEW JERSEY NEW MEXICO NEW YORK 2-15 years and up to $2,000 Up to 1 year and or up to $1,000 (for possession of 1 ounce or less) Up to 1 year (for possession of up to Vi ounce) NORTH CAROLINA NORTH DAKOTA Up to 2 vears and may he fined at the court's discretion (for possession of 1 gram or less) Up to 6 months in county jail or up to 2 vears in the penitentiary and or up to $2,000 OHIO 2-15 years and up to $10,000 (the same penalty applies to having carnal knowledge of someone under the influence of marijuana) OKLAHOMA Up to 7 years and or up to $5,000 OREGON Up to 1 year in the county jail or up to 10 years in the state penitentiary and or up to $5,000 PENNSYLVANIA RHODE ISLAND SOUTH CAROLINA SOUTH DAKOTA TENNESSEE TEXAS UTAH VERMONT VIRGINIA WASHINGTON WEST VIRGINIA WISCONSIN WYOMING 2-5 years and up to $2,000 Up to 15 years and up to $10,000 Up to 2 years and or up to $2,000 Up to 1 year and or up to $500 (for possession of 1 ounce or less) 2-5 years and up to $500 2 years to life Not less than 6 months Up to 6 months and or up to $500 Up to 12 months and or up to $1,000 Up to 6 months and or up to $500 2-5 years and up to $1,000 Up to 1 year and or up to $500 Up to 6 months in jail and up to $1,000 9PLAYBOY I K I S Trying to score in the old ballgame.11PLAYBOY IRIS IRIS INTERVIEW: DR. RENE DUBOS a candid conversation with the world renowned ecologist, presidential advisor, and author of the pulitzer prize winning book-"so human an animal”. Combining historical perspective with professional laboratory experience. Dr. Rene Dubos speaks of the most crucial problems of our time. The u-orld renowned ecologist and winner of the Pulitzer Prize spoke on the Wisconsin State University — Stevens Point campus on February II, 1971. The topic of his presentation uas "The Quality of Life: Can Man Construct a Reiter Environmentf“ The French born Dr. Dubos has long been a citizen of the United States, and left his birth place in his early twenties. He earned his Doctorial Degree at Rutgers University and has worked at Rockefeller University besides being a faculty "Practically all adults are committed, so to speak. They are more or less prisoners of their lives." member of the Harvard University Medical School. Dr. Dubos also served as president of the Scientists Institute for Public Information until 1969 and still continues to serve on the board. Dr. Dubos presently is Professor of Environmental Biomedicine at Rockefeller University in New York City. He is also a member of the Citizen's Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality to President Nixon. Dr. Dubos was the first person to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining germfighting drugs from microbes over 20 years ago and can truly be considered a pioneer in the development of antibiotics. He has received many awards for sci- "If pollution is to be solved, and I believe it can. it has to be by the Federal Government establishing ceilings with regard to how much pollution is to he permitted discharged into the air and ivater." entific research, some of which are: The Lasker Award in Public Health. The American Medical Association Award, and The Arches of Science Award of the Pacific Science Center. Dr. Dubos. besides being a premier scientist, ranks as an outstanding author as well. So Human an Animal won him the Pulitzer Prize in 1969. His latest literary piece is Reason Awake. Other works to his credit include Man Adapting. The Unseen World. The Dreams of Reason. The Touch of Life. Pasteur and Modem Science, and Mirage of Health. The following interview with the congenial Dr. Dubos was conducted shortly before his lecture. "I am convinced that it is through the freshness of apprehension of the total situation by young people, that our society will acquire a new kind of vision." 12IRIS: Dr. Dubos. what was your capacity on the President's Advisory Council? DUBOS: As a matter of fact. I became involved in this program because in the New York area I did try to mobilize public opinion by speaking about some very practical problems of the environmental situation in that area, especially the lead poisoning. Though that does not concern this area very much, perhaps you know that in many of our large cities, such as New York. Chicago, and St. Louis, there is an enormous problem of lead poisoning in the poorer sections of the cities where children eat the lead paint and where the number of children affected it tremendous. I was heavily involved in this and. in fact, did organize in New York a sort of international conference on lead poisoning which had tremendous impact. One of my satisfactions is that two weeks ago President Nixon decided to put aside 30 or 50 million dollars for the lead control program. IRIS: Were you involved in the environmental teach-ins last year? DUBOS: Not only was I involved, but much of it started from my laboratory. There’s a young fellow who was working on his Ph.D. with me and was extremely involved in teaching in the eastern part of the country, especially in the New York area. So. from the beginning I was involved in the program through him. Over a week’s time. I traveled across the country, from campuses in Maine nil the way to southern California and spoke at least twenty times during that week. In addition to completing that part of the story. I thought it would be interesting that on the Today Show I was the first on the program to speak on the teach-in. IRIS: Do you think the teach-in was successful and do you think it provided any motivation? DUBOS: I think success was achieved, not in practical results, but in sensitizing American public opinion. Very few people before had sensed what it was about. There is no doubt that the teach-in did make people aware of facts on pollution, but more importantly, that there were lots of people concerned with it. I think this has been the largest practical result — to make the public at large, the mass media, and then the government aware of the tremendous amount of people who were worried and disturbed. I also think many politicians decided that it was wise to move into this program. IRIS: Do you think that as a result of your teach-ins people became more involved? Also, do you think that it’s being carried over or is it dying out? DUBOS: If you asked me this question two years ago I would have been pessi-mistic. I would have said, and I did say at the time, that part of what was going to happen was that there would be a great excitement and a great deal of interest and then people would get tired of it. I think what has happened is just the opposite. What has happened is that, as a result of the teach-in the concern for the problems of the environment has spread from the college population to other populations. In fact. I suspect it’s now stronger in the high schools than in the colleges and it’s beginning to spread into the grade schools. I see the movement gaining strength from the fact that younger people are involved. Something else has also happened — mainly that industrialists have become aware of the fact that this is an important problem. Some of them. I believe, have become concerned for good reasons, because they are good citizens and. like everyone else, wish the country to be a better place. Then there are others who have become concerned simply because it is essential to create a decent image for business. The fact is that now there are many industrialists who have become concerned as a result of those two movements of diffusion. starting from the college population. certainly, then spreading to the high school and the grade school and spreading into the business community. I think now the movement is in for good. IRIS: You stated in your book. So Human An Animal, that you felt the youth population— the movement with the youth, their protests and rebellion — was necessary for the society if it was going to further itself at all. DUBOS: I absolutely felt that way. IRIS: And you feel now. that this is the case with the environmental idea? DUBOS: I feel even more strongly so. First. I have been involved in this for some 15 years now. I have been a well-known scientist for about 30 years and have spoken to all sorts of adult groups. I know many groups of adults are interested in what I say. but I also know that it does not make much of a difference. Practically all adults are committed. so to s| eak. They are more or less prisoners of their lives. They have little freedom of motion, and because of that, whatever their good intentions are they cannot do much. Whereas young people are not yet prisoners of their lives or at least much less so. Younger, people, because they are not yet completely involved in the social structure as it functions now. can at least try to visualize something better. Moreover, they can try to visualize something better in terms of their direct apprehension of the qualities that there could Ik in life. They have not yet lost that sense. I am honestly convinced that it is done because they are young. You see, I wrote it long before I had any hope of reaching a young audience. I am convinced that it is through the freshness of apprehension of the total situation by young people that our society will acquire a new kind of vision. IRIS: Doctor, do you feel the mass media are helping to bring out this ecological problem? Is there anything else that the mass media could do? DUBOS: Well, my views about the mass media are not simple. I am not too happy about it. On several occasions over television, on some of the most famous networks. I have talked about the environmental problem and have seen some of my friends in the movement talking about environmental problems; and I do know that some of the leaders of the mass media, some of the most famous people in television, are really honestly concerned. But then what happens? Here I have seen myself, as well as Margaret Mead or other people who have shared programs with myself, talk about some problems of pollution or environment or quality of life. We talk for about three or four minutes, then the commercial comes on. Time and time again I have seen that the commercial is absolutely contrary to what we are pleading for. Some way or nnother the mass media doesn’t have enough freedom to be very effective. For example. the three minute talk about the good cause and then after that the tremendous impact of advertising for something which defeats the purpose for which we are talking. I urn not as hopeful as I used to be about the mass media. Unless we find a way that educational television can develop more appeal for the general public and can convey the message without spoiling it by advertising for the very products that are destroying the environment, there is little hope for it. IRIS: We know that the ecological problem and the quest for quality in life is world wide. Can you tell us what some of the other countries around the globe are doing about these problems? DUBOS: As a matter of fact. I know only of the movements within this country very clearly. It started in this country about four or five years ago. Some of us were in it before, but in practice of course, it started here because the situation was more acute here. The other country in which there has been a great deal of action is Sweden. They’ve begun government controller! policies to attempt to control many forms of pollution. In England, also, a great deal has been done. Now. in Japan there has been talk, but I have not seen any action whatever. I haven't seen any kind of action in other parts of the world that I have visited. This year I saw a beginning of interest in France, but still no kind of action. To summarize. 1 would say that this country, despite a great deal of talk, has seen little action. In Sweden there is. I believe, more action and better planner! action. In England, there have been very few spectacular achievements. I really don't think very much has happened in the 13PLAYBOY IRIS rest of the world. IRIS: Do you fool that the Protestant ethic, which helped develop this country. has now helped to destroy it? DUBOS: It just so happens that I'm writing a book on that topic. I happen to be in complete disagreement with what is being said about it. I cannot give you a complete statement of the problem, but let me try to summarize it. Some six years ago Lyn White, a professor of history at the University of California in Los Angeles, published a paper called the "Historic Roots of the Ecology Classes." It is a paper in which he defends this view in a most interesting manner. He states his defense in view of the Judeo-Christian traditions; by having made man dominion over nature as stated in the Bible, has been responsible for the development of technology and for the lack of res| ect for nature. Because man was given the dominion over nature, man had the moral right to do whatever he wanted. He goes on to say that this Judeo-Christian tradition expresses itself greatest in the countries under the influence of the Protestant churches which generally have been the most effective in developing technology. That's the general theme. At first sight this appears to be right. There is no doubt that a sense of dominion over nature is part of the creed of the Judeo-Christian countries and that technological development resulted — even reached it highest development — in the countries of Protestant religion. However, if you look at history a little closer you will find that the grossest mismanagement of nature and the worst destructions of the natural environment have occurred in countries which have never been under the influence of the Judeo-Christian tradition. For example, all the deserts of central Asia were all caused by deforest ration and by over-grazing, which happened long before the Bible was written. All the Cedars of Lebanon, perhaps the most beautiful trees that ever existed, were destroyed by the Mesopotamian kings and by the Roman emperors about three thousand years ago. All the deserts of Mexico were created by the Aztecs by deforestration and by over-grazing their animals. There are countless examples where gross mismanagement of nature appeared in countries which have had absolutely nothing to do with the Judeo-Christian tradition. Then, on the positive side, there is the fact that the best management of nature has occurred in some of the countries of Judeo-Christian tradition. The best land management has occurred in that part of northern Europe where Benedictine Monks, during the early Medieval times, transformed the forests into cultivated land and managed it so well that this land has been under continuous cultivation for 1.500 years now and is still one of the most fertile lands in the world. If you want to look at the positive side of the Judeo-Christian tradition regarding nature, the most exquisite and influential expression of man’s respect for nature comes from Francis of Assissi who certainly is a very good representative of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Finally, the first concrete scientific formulation of land ethic, to use the expression of Aldo Leopold — to discover, to formulate an ecological doctrine. almost a doctrine of conscience of man's behavior towards nature — has all occurred during the past 50 years in the countries of Judeo-Christian tradition. In summary — the development of technology, as well as the mismanagement of the forests — this is true of many countries of Judeo-Christian tradition and especially of Protestant tradition — has caused all sorts of damage. But even more damage has been caused in countries that we have developed more completely during recent years. IRIS: We have all heard many figures as to life expectancy of the world as we know it — an estimated 30 years. In your own estimation, how accurate arc these figures of doom? DUBOS: I must admit that if it were true that we would continue to develop the kind of technology we have now and to manage it in the thoughtless manner we are now; then I suspect that within 40 years we will have done irreversible damage, and in this sense, those who prophesize doom before the end of the century have some justification. It seems very clear to me. however, that we have reached a turning point. All over the technological world, an acute awareness of the danger has developed during the past 5 or 10 years. What strikes me as much more interesting than just reciting the disasters that have happened, and the disaster that could happen, is to point to a number of situations where the trend has been reversed. Within a very few years one has found it possible to stop the destruction of nature and to create conditions which are returning the world to a better state. IRIS: Do you feel that it's possible to take our present technological knowledge and reverse the way we are using it: and if so. how are we going to do it? DUBOS: It will be a very complicated answer and I won't pretend to give alt the details. I am convinced that it is possible. There are good examples showing in certain places that it has been done. One example is London, the largest city in the world and much larger than any city in this country, where in 15 years it has completely reversed the trend of pollution of the air and water. If it can he done in London, a city which is certainly not as wealthy as we are. it can he done here once we decide to do it. Furthermore, there is. as I mentioned before, an acute development among some of the great business leaders — an awareness that something must be done. I admit very little has been done, but I think the reason is because Congress has not yet been very effective in pressing legislation in this field. There has been a lot of talk, but little action in the direction of legislation. For example. the day when Congress passes laws that make it illegal to pollute water through the paper-pulp industry. I have no doubt that the paper industry in this city will find ways of not polluting the streams. They cannot do it in your state now because if they try to do it, it will increase their cost of production and if it is not national legislation, the increased cost here would place the local products in a bad situation, on the national market competitively. If it becomes a national law. however, then industry will have to find ways of doing it. IRIS: Being aware of President Nixon’s Revenue Sharing Plan, do you think money is going to be a big help, and what does the administration really plan on doing? DUBOS: Since I have not rend any newspapers now for two weeks. I am completely out of touch with things, but let me give you my personal philosophy about this. You must realize, of course, that I am not a politician or an economist. thus I look at this problem almost from the outside with whatever scientific training I have. My opinion is that these problems are not going to be solved by the federal government spending money to purify the environment. If the problem is to be solved, and I believe it can. it has to be by the federal government establishing ceilings with regard to the amount of pollutants permitted to be discharged into the air and water. The federal government must demand that industry not discharge more than a certain level of pollution and if so. the industry will be fined or put out of existence. As soon as this is done. I'm convinced that industry will find ways of not discharging pollutants into the environment. I don't believe purification of environment can happen by federal or state government spending. Rather, it must be done through strict legislation that makes it absolutely illegal to pollute the environment. I have an enormous amount of hope about this. I have a boundless confidence that when one is compelled to do something, one does it. If you were to say today that nobody is allowed to release sulphur dioxide into the air or water vou can be sure that the chemists would find ways of trapping the sulphur and exhaust. to re-cycle it and then reuse it. It would be a little more expensive during the first 3-5 years, but after that, the re-cycling process would be converted into an economically profitable operation. □Located on the banks of the Wisconsin River lies a sleepy town called Stevens Point. The community's major industry is a University that calls Stevens Point its home, and the biggest asset of that University is its bumper crop of luscious lovelies that call it home — Photographs by Jim Pierson, Daniel Pcrret, Mike Ualin She may be as pretty as a picture and look as soft and tender as a rose petal, but don’t let her looks fool you. She can hold her own in the daily fight that even the strongest male may sheepishly drift away from—the fight to graduate. She’s strong enough to carve up a cat cadaver, and patient enough to listen to a two hour lecture on the Malthusian theory of overpopulation — and stay awake. Her intelligence keeps her on top of the curves — curves other than her own, while her warm smile can invigorate even the dullest classroom. She may drink “Bud” or even “Point.” Perhaps the most potent sip she may take might be a “coke.” But what would a night out on the town be like without her? When she’s around it’s “instant atmosphere” and fun. When she’s not, most of the guys probably aren’t either. She may think she’s only a face in the crowd, but to an admiring male in the mob, she’s the face in the crowd, and a pretty one at that. The Girl of WSU is all this and much more. She can bust the curve or break a heart. She can make a day or break that, too. Because she is a woman she is unpredictable. And because she is a woman she is something special. Come with us now on a pictorial sojourn with some, but definitely not all, of the bundles of joy that grace our campus and our lives — The Girls of WSU. 15PLAYBOY IRIS If a playboy were seated between this perky pair, he wouldn’t know which way to turn. The Shebesta sisters, hailing from Brookfield, show here that Batman and Robin are not the only dynamic duo. Both brunette Rene and her blonde haired sister Deniese are education majors, and each has reigned as a beauty queen at least once. Individually, each is the kind of girl you’d like to have live next door. Together, their warmth and charm is doubled. A cold and snowy night to set the mood, a crackling fire for atmosphere, and a pretty girl to warm it up. This, and a glass of wine, perhaps, is all that is necessary to warm the heart of even the most frigid male. The one radiating all the warmth here is Miss Debi Miller. She is a junior from Wausau majoring in Home Economics. She was WSU homecoming queen in 1969 and is on the Deans list. Twenty year old Miss Mary Hundley is sugar and spice and all kinds of nice. Here she’s being careful not to fall in because sugar dissolves in water. The junior from Milwaukee is much more than just a pretty face, though. She’s a member of the Deans list and Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority. After graduation she plans on teaching kindergarten. This pretty WSU coed, Miss Cheri Dalimann. is a sophomore from Reedsburg. She’s majoring in Speech Pathology and Audiology and played the part of Little Bo Peep at Storybook Gardens in the Dells. A second runner up in . the 1970 Miss Stevens Point contest, she’s a gorgeous sight indeed. Any red blooded « American boy can appreciate beauty when he sees it. If he’s single he can hope, and if he’s married, engaged or going steady, the fact that he’s on a “diet” does not impair his ability to look at the “menu." Iat WSU.

She’s lovely Miss Karla Pfeiffer, a senior from Crandon. Karla, majoring in Physical Education, is in great shape, indeed. Any season will find her on skis as she is an avid water and snow skier. After graduation, Karla hopes to go into either teaching or physical therapy. 23Just because Miss Sandy Krause is wearing a black hat, don’t think for one minute that she’s a villian. This vivacious five foot six inch, blue eyed blonde is one of WSU’s best. Sandy has a smile as warm as her personality. The junior from Hamburg is majoring in Business Education and in her free time enjoys skiing, traveling, sewing and going to Joe’s. Honors to her credit include being elected President of Hyer Hall and Pray-Sims Sweetheart. Her future plans call for a career in teaching, which leads us to wonder — why didn’t they make teachers like that when we were in high school?!WSU'S PARTY JOKES An atl.eclb lady kh having di'l-Culty he. tklrt donn ibwl he. thepaV '«•». —Hie htoh Ming in -c-l o' Old « S . ... .warn o' a -an -attMng he. docc-dc- wjh cen.lde.eble M«w and •he him In an Wicetod .Ma A pe.Hcv'e.iy 11.1 .Keued gl.l nan. 10 a dtd»‘ el'lce kAC'ng » ge tome p.«(a„hn.l ed.-ce -h«h Inc.eeto "he alia o' he. neuty bailie.

At Stevens Point, however, this doesn't apply. The lightning of the Ritzenthaler family has struck here four times. Now. with the rainbow at an end, the pot of gold plainly in sight was little brother Tom. Point’s Tom Terrific Memories, nostalgia and the end of an era. That, in a nutshell, was what Saturday, February 20, 1971 was. On that night the Ritzcnthaler family from Baraboo accepted a well deserved ovation as the curtain closed on Point’s brightest stars. Dick. Chuck and Ken Ritzenthaler took their final bows in seasons past and left behind memories and accomplishments that will never be forgotten. That night also climaxed a career always to be remembered with a record not soon to be topped, as little brother Tom played his last game as a Pointer in front of a home crowd. Tom Ritzenthaler was something else. He was one of the most feared competitors in the WSUC from the moment he donned the Pointer togs. He had three tough acts to follow — his brothers, all of whom were outstanding. Collectively, his brothers had accounted for 1,591 points. Individually Tom matched all three. He set a new Point career scoring record with 1,550 points. He set the single season scoring mark of 577 points during the 1970-71 campaign. He also holds the record for the most field goals attempted and made during a single season. To say he was outstanding would be trite. To say he was great would be better. To say he was a Ritzenthaler speaks for itself, and to say that he was the best of all the Ritzenthalers is the highest compliment he could be paid. 4445■uv PLAYBOY IRISSCORES SP 90 Carthage 81 SP 89 St. Mary’s 74 SP 70 Platteville 62 SP 79 Oshkosh 73 SP 85 La Crosse 81 SP 67 Eau Claire 104 SP 84 Whitewater 55 SP 82 Georgia State 76 SP 88 Augusta College 77 SP 70 Wofford College 79 SP 59 River Falls (OT) 57 SP 62 Superior 58 SP 76 Stout 64 SP 82 St. Norbert 79 SP 76 Platteville 72 SP 67 Stout 72 SP 69 Eau Claire 80 SP 74 La Crosse (OT) 72 SP 98 River Falls 72 SP 77 Superior 68 SP 85 Oshkosh 49 SP 82 Whitewater 73 47S I MI AOflAVId X19PLAYBOY IRIS51With the traditional games, contests, ice sculptures and concert, this year’s Winter Carnival again brought the usual protests against it along with a declining interest by a majority of the students. “Winter Fun-Ski” started the game as Winter Carnivals in years past, with a torch lighting ceremony. This year, however, there was no one around to see it lit. Ice sculptures lacked the quality of former years, participation in the games was uninspired. and the general atmosphere was one of "Who cares?” “Winter Fun-Ski,” which lasted from February 14-21, was dedicated to Mark Cates, associate professor of political science. This was a break in tradition. Formerly, only retired faculty members were recipients of this dedication. LaVon Johnson and Jeff Court, representing Watson Hall, won the popularity contest and reigned as King and Queen over the week-long event. Both LaVon and Jeff are from New London, Wis., and both are English majors. Linda Kelly and Gary Kane, representing Steiner Hall, were the runners up. The men’s overall winners were the Sig Taus, while Alpha Sigma Alpha walked off with the women’s division trophy for the third consecutive year. A well deserved tip of the hat goes to the men of Aloha Phi Omega who again, as in years past, served as judges, time keepers and counters for the games of Winter Carnival week. 5253and Crow in Concert John Denver itunanmTHE PLAYBOY ADVISOR O vercrowdedness at WSU ten years ago might have meant a Friday night out at Joe’s. Today, however, the situation exists everywhere on campus. It would be easier to find the ten dollar bill you lost three months ago at the Brat Bam, than to find a place to sit at noon in the Gridiron. It would also be easier to find someone who would give you a brand new car. than to find a place to park it. This overcrowdedness, both in and out of class, tends to breed an air of im-pcrsonalization and places more stress on the student as a number than as an individual. One can only pack so many sardines into a can, without enlarging it, before it ruptures. The time has come for a moratorium to be placed upon further enrollments at this particular university, and upheld, until WSU-SP has the facilities to accept more. Apathy is the slow death that criples the effectiveness of all organizations. It is the cancer that spreads, and if not stopped, will kill. WSU-SP is greatly affected by this disease, and without the proper medication — concern — it too will be dead. War rages and takes with it the lives of many people, all of whom are sacrificed to the God of money and power. A great too many Point students don’t really care, unless they are unfortunate enough to have a low number in Nixon’s draft lottery. But then the concern is only for one’s own life and freedom, not the beauty of all life or freedom for everyone. The typical Point student finds a great deal of time to complain, but can’t seem to fit involvement or constructiveness to remedv the situation into his schedule. Pollution doesn’t really concern him, and if he sees it occurring around him, he’ll more than likely cover his eyes so it will go away. He is anti-Greek, even though he knows nothing about Greek life and stereotypes each organization’s members because he is too apathetic to get to know them as individuals. He doesn’t take any action on his own, but waits instead for someone else to do it. If what is done, however, is not to his liking he’ll counter it with his only weapon — bitching. He’ll spend the rest of his life complaining, but not doing. He’ll always belittle but never contribute. When institutions and the establishment gobble him up no one will notice — because they, too, are too apathetic to care about anything or anyone other than themselves. We are a group of followers. If apathy is not replaced with involvement soon — then there will be no one left to lead, or no one left even to care who does lead. T his year’s IRIS has been the focal point of a great deal of controversy. Where is the hard cover yearbook? Students have asked that question over and over again. The answer lies in the apathy students have exhibited towards a yearbook over the past few years. In the first place, no one was interested in working on the staff. Usually, the “staff” consisted of only an editor or two who ended up putting out the entire book. Volunteers — if there were any at the beginning of the year — simply drifted off when real work was called for. And in the second place, only 50-60 per cent of the students were interested enough even to pick up their yearbook when it was finally done. This is not unique to the Stevens Point campus. Yearbooks seem to be a dying institution on many other campuses, and have been commonly dropped elsewhere. It appears that the traditional “memory book” is becoming less relevent throughout the country. The situation here is only one example of a general trend. The magazine style was an experiment in working with a more flexible format which had possibilities of evolving into something more closely attuned to events and activities as they occur at WSU-SP. In this respect, it was hoped to develop the yearbook somewhat along the lines of “thematic” magazines, each of which would treat a topic of current interest (such as the environment, WSU coeds, and war and peace) while still providing the traditional materials of yearbooks such as senior photos, sports, organizations, and activities. The change to a magazine, however. meant conforming to antiquated State Printing codes which stated that the magazine could have no color reproductions. It also lim- ited the magazine to a maximum of thirty-two pages plus cover. Because the publication carried, the IRIS name, students immedfately compared it to the hard cover yearbook. This was like comparing apples and oranges. A thirty-two page magazine, no matter how great the quality, will always come in a distant second when compared to a two-hundred-seventy-two page hard cover yearbook. The fact that the initial magazine was only one-third of the finished product was not even taken into consideration. Since January 1, State Printing codes have been rewritten. Despite the fact that no color reproductions are allowed, the page limit no longer exists. The last two issues will be longer, and this seems to be the criterion a great many students use in evaluating quality. Due to the apparent public opinion against a magazine format, the format will be dropped. If another yearbook is produced at WSU. it probably will be a hardcover publication. We on the IRIS staff respond to student opinion because we are students ourselves. We desire to bring you what you want. You pay for the IRIS. It is funded, at present, through the Student Activities fees you pay. What you want is what you should get. Now let’s carry that a step further. Your activities fees are your money. They pay for every basketball or football game you attend — or do not attend. They pay for every coffee house concert you hear or do not hear. They pay for WSUS — whether you listen to WSUS or not. If you want a yearbook, you can pick one up — but whether you do or not, you’ve still paid for it. The Playboy Advisor, then, would like to say that, as a student who is paying activities fees, you should have a choice in how your money is being spent. You should ask the question: Do I want to pay for athletic events I won’t attend, pay for a yearbook I don’t want, and read a student newspaper I don’t like? The questions concerning your activities fees are as boundless as your imagination. It’s about time we start hearing some answers. □STAFF COORDINATING EDITORS: Kathie Duff, Marc Vollrath PHOTO EDITOR: Mike Bahn THEME EDITOR: Dave Crehore (Environment) DESIGN LAYOUT: Sue Crevcoure, Pat Tylka CONSULTING EDITOR: Linda White AREA EDITORS: Homecoming: Sue Crevcoure Arts Lectures: Nancy Krei Sports: Dick Hose Greeks: Marc Vollrath Dorms: Linda Bliss Organizations: Sue Moushey PHOTOGRAPHERS: Daniel Perret Paul Renard Bill Mitchell Dale Hutjens Tom Kujawski Gary Carlton Gary Schneider In the environment and people all around us, change is the rule rather than the exception. Those who attended WSU-SP in previous years will see that change has also affected the Iris. The hard cover annual yearbook type of publication is being issued in magazine form this year. It is hoped that the increased flexibility resulting from this format will lend itself to closer coverage of important events on campus. Several issues are planned during the academic year. If the experiment is successful, the magazine will be continued. It depends upon you, the reading audience. Each issue will deal with a theme of current interest. The first magazine examines the environment. Subsequent issues will look at other topics of the day. The staff hopes you will find the Iris interesting and informative.

Life is but a collection of experiences and each person a separate experience. We have fun together, laugh together, drink together and feel bad together — but only because we are together. Each Greek is an individual sharing part of his or her life with other individuals. It’s a commune of experiences to be shared together. “People Together” partially, but not completely, sums up Greek life. A bond exists that not only draws, but unites. Though it is only a feeling it is stronger than the strongest rope, and because this feeling is radiated from people it is warmer than the sunlight. We could ail exist by ourselves, but existence is so drab when life can be so full if we have others to share it with. On the campus of WSU-SP there are ten Greek social organizations. Six of these are fraternities and the remaining four, sororities. All are nationally affiliated. The oldest Greek social organization on this campus is Phi Sigma Epsilon which received its charter as Kappa chapter in 1931. At present Guy Gibson is the chapter’s adviser. The men of Chi Delta Rho became Wisconsin Delta chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon in 1952. This organization is under the guidance of Ron Hatchett. 1956 saw the chartering of two more nationals on the WSU scene. Psi Beta Psi and Kappa Lambda Mu became Alpha Sigma Alpha and Tau Kappa Epsilon, respectively. Mrs. Dan Leider provides the necessary guidance for the Gamma Beta chapter of the Alpha Sigs, while the Tekes of Epsilon Nu are under the adviser-ship of the chairman of Arts and Lectures, Jack Cohan. Zeta Chi chapter of Delta Zeta Sorority came into existence when the local, Tau Gamma Beta, was absorbed in 1963. Another local, Omega Mu Chi, liecame national in 1964 as Alpha Phi Sorority. Today’s Delta Sigma chapter of Alpha Phi is under the guidance of Mrs. Gordon Hansen. Alpha Beta Rho became Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity in 1965, the same year that Theta Delta Phi local became Sigma Pi national. The Sig Tau’s Gamma Beta chapter is advised by John Norton, while Gamma Lambda chapter of Sigma Pi is under the guidance of Bob Busch. The two newest nationals here at Point are Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity and Theta Phi Alpha Sorority. The Delta Sigs went national in 1968, while Psi Delta Psi of yesteryear became the Alpha Theta chapter of Theta Phi Alpha. Mrs. William Stielstra advises the Theta Phis. 6 Birds of a feather flock together Tekes Long, Hassler Day Delta Zeta tugs — Stevie Pointer hesitates COME ON POINTERS! “Where have you been all my life?

Held each semester, the Fraternities and Sororities at WSU-SP welcome and actively encourage all interested students to attend. The beginning. Once initiated as a pledge, the individual sees just what Greek life is all about. Close ties result in this 6-8 weeks of working together with other people. Harassment has all but vanished in most Greek organizations as scholarship, productivity, and personal involvement have replaced it. It’s a period of fun and excitement. If the individual should discover that Greek life is not for him. he can depledge at any time. The goal. Each pledge successfully completing the pledge period is admitted into the Greek organization. As an active member of a Fraternity or Sorority, the new initiate shares the same proud tradition of the Greek organization of which he is now a member. He will get out of it as much as he puts into it. He can develop any leadership qualities that may have gone unnoticed before. He is truly a part of a living, functioning body. He will have his share of fun. meet many new people, and will help other people who are not as fortunate as he. Not everyone is adaptable to Greek life. Some people are anti-social while others feel it is unnecessary for them. Greek life is not even necessary for Greeks, either. A glass of beer is not a necessity, nor is fun, for that matter. Nothing in life is really necessary other than food, water and other basics. For most of us, though, this is not enough. If we are not anti-social, we crave other people. To some, friendship is as close an involvement with other people as is desired. To Greeks, friendship is not enough. They desire to share, be close to, and to help and cherish others. The Greek way of life may not be for everyone — but it is enriching for them. Would you find it rewarding? Consider it.

BY DAVE CREHORE What has happened to that beautiful, busy America that we all had so much faith in? No one seemed to worry about it yesterday. We were sure that the future could hold nothing better than the mammoth outpouring of goods in which we set such great store, and nothing worse than the vague, unthinkable threat of nuclear war. John Kennedy recognized the fear of war that dwelt in the hearts of many during the ’Fifties and early 'Sixties. He called it a “Damoclean Sword.” But the people of the present, from the aged to the yet-to-be-born, have three swords over their heads: a crushing, suffocating explosion of people, the slow but inexorable poisoning of man and his environment with the toxic products of our affluance, and the still vague but vastly more powerful threat of nuclear annihilation. What happened to our country, and to the world? The answer is hard to take. We happened. We Americans, with our huge appetites for things, and our blindness to the damage that the production of those things was doing to the world. Americans, with the unshakable conviction that bigger, newer, and more imposing things were always better. Americans, with our suicidal belief in the unmitigated goodness of a bumper crop of babies. The profligate, profiteering philosophy that we have clung to for so long has just begun to bear its true fruit: unbreathable air, unusable waters, unlimited ugliness, unbearable crowding. In the space of 250 years, we have managed to take possession of the richest, most beautiful, most livable expanse of land in the world and turn it into a wasteland. It's not a wasteland, you say? What else would you call a country in which your children will never be able to draw a breath of really fresh air, will never be able to indulge in the luxury of a safe drink of water from a woodland spring, will never be able to see the grandeur of Yellowstone or Yosemite without reserving the privilege three years in advance? And what else could you call the land of pushing and shoving, of noise and indifference and fear and regimentation in which your children will mature? How could we have done it? How could we have let it happen? The answer, again, is hard to take. We have been vain. We are guilty of the most colossal vanity in the history of man. We have dared to think that we were the masters of nature — that we could subdue it and consume it and bend it to our will forever without paying a price. We think today, as did our great-grandfathers before us, that the resources of the land are limitless, that they exist solely to satisfy our greed and to make our lives comfortable. We have allowed ourselves to become estranged from the land. We no longer feel, as did some of our more perceptive ancestors, that we are a part of it. Over the years we have grown contemptuous of the land, and now we treat it as though it were an expendable slave, to be worked hard until something better comes along. But nothing ever will. We have a lot to learn, and a lot to do. First, we must assume an attitude of humility, and begin to treat the earth with the respect due it. We are utterly dependent on the proper operation of natural systems so complex that the best minds are only beginning to understand them. Until we can fully grasp the effects of our civilization upon these systems, it will be necessary to realize that we are only a small part of the whole, and act accordingly. Second, it is imperative that we discard the dream of perpetual economic and population growth. Economies that cannot function in a stable state are living on borrowed time and resources — and the same is true of human populations. We are already putting 14an unbearable strain on the environment, and the breaking point is not far away. In the future, the quality of human life will continue to decrease as the number of people increases. Limiting and stabilizing populations, starting now, can be the only humane thing to do. Third, we must see that the day when engineers, industrialists, and politicians are in sole charge of the environment comes to an end. The results of their simplistic, self-serving decisions are visible today in a ravaged land, contaminated air, and a thousand ruined rivers. They have violated the faith we had in them, and we can no longer trust them to act in the long-range interest of the people. Fourth, and finally, we students must take up the challenge thrown to us by a sadly abused land and an unhappy people. If we want our children to enjoy long and fulfilling lives, we must live ours according to the rules imposed by nature. A hundred years ago, men disputed the theory of evolution. Today we know that it is real and in continuous operation. It is within our power to make mankind the flower on the evolutionary tree. It is also within our power to prove that man is one of evolution's biggest mistakes. In her wisdom, nature equipped man with a brain. Perhaps one of these days we will find out what it is for. Photo by IMit Crthorr 15The University BY CATHI MORTENSON AND RUTH GRANGER It’s a simple thing to point an accusing finger at industry for the pollution it creates. And it’s easy to rise into a fine indignation over the pollution that government allows. But the establishment is not totally to blame for the mess our environment is in. You are just as much to blame as it is, if you thoughtlessly buy, consume, and discard its products without considering the effects of your actions. Did you ever stop to think about what happens to your empty beverage cans, or to the aerosol cans you use every day? What about the food you throw away? Where does it go? The most common answer to questions like these might be “. . . into the garbage can — and after that I don’t worry about it.” But there are people who have to worry about it: people who are responsible for garbage disposal and sewage treatment, people who manage our natural resources, and people who are concerned with the kind of conditions we will leave behind us. The company that maintains the soft drink mu-chines on campus estimates that we students buy approximately 70 cans of pop from each machine every day. T here are 26 machines, and that means that there are something like 1800 cans to be disposed of daily. But leverage cans are only a fraction of the garbage disposal problems we create. A survey taken in one of the residence halls revealed some startling statistics. Projecting the results of the survey to all the dorms on campus, it can be estimated that students currently possess: 15,165 aerosol cans 23.640 non-returnable containers of all other kinds Considering that the dormitories house only about one-third of the total enrollment, projected totals for the entire University population would be: 45,495 aerosol cans 70.920 other containers None of these items can, at present, be recycled or reused. They have to be disused of. and that is where the problems begin. The city of Stevens Point picks up approximately 55 tons of garbage per week, from residences, small apartment buildings, and some businesses. Two commercial garbage disposal companies pick up an additional 73 tons, 35-40 of which come from the campus. All of this material is trucked to the city dump, which is located on the flood plain of the Wisconsin River. The dump pollutes the river, and the city is under orders from the Department of Natural Resources to make a lot of expensive alterations which will abate the pollution. But even when these changes are made, Stevens Point will continue to have solid waste disposal problems. At the present rate, the city uses up five to six acres of landfill site per year. Eventually the dump will l e filled up and another location will have to be found. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find and purchase suitable landfill sites, since most landowners do not want dumps on or near their properties. Every bit of unnecessary solid waste that the University produces serves to compound the city’s prob-lem, but in the long run the University will not have to share the costs of land acquisition and dump maintenance. since it pays no property taxes. Those 1800 pop cans thrown away every day become significant when viewed in this light. 16... As Polluter Sewage disposal is another local problem to which the University makes a sizable contribution. The existing Stevens Point treatment plant has a daily capacity of 1.7 million gallons. But the average daily load is 2.5 million gallons, of which 600,000 gallons come from the campus. The sewage in excess of capacity receives very little or no treatment and pollutes the river. Stevens Point is in the process of planning an addition to its sewage treatment plant which will cost $1.53 million. Hopefully, the addition will solve the pollution problem, but until it is built, every gallon of unnecessary sewage from the University will further pollute the long-suffering Wisconsin. It would be difficult indeed to determine how many of the 600,000 gallons per day are “unnecessary,” but two safe bets are wasted food and wasted water. Everything which is not eaten at the food centers goes down what is fondly known as “Igor.” the garbage disposal, and then makes its way to the treatment plant. That scoop of potatoes or dish of vegetables you throw away might not seem like much, but if you multiply it by the 3,000 people who are quite likely doing the same thing, and add in the food which is thrown away in the kitchens, the amount is staggering. It might not seem likely that clean water can pollute the river, but when it is run through an overloaded treatment plant, it does just that. Sewage treatment is a time process, and the greater the rate of flow, the less time the plant has to clean up the sewage. Therefore, even clean, wasted water has the effect of pushing untreated sewage through the plant and into the river. Water which is left running in drinking fountains, wash basins, or showers is a pollutant. So you can see that the University and its students contribute considerably to local pollution problems. Solid waste and sewage are only two of the ways in which we pollute. Wasted electricity and the 125,000 sheets of high-quality paper which the Duplicating Department goes through in an average week add indirectly to our environmental mess. “Handsome is as handsome does." If University students are as much in favor of cleaning up the environment as they say they are. they will give the following suggestions careful consideration: 1. Don’t buy pop in metal cans or throw-away bottles. 2. Use as few non-returnable containers as possible. Boycott products which come in disposable cans, tubes, etc. 3. Don't waste food. Ask the food service employees to make up your plate the way you want it. They will be more than happy to comply, because the less food you waste the higher their profits will l e. 4. Don’t waste water. If you are not using it, shut it off. To be sure, these suggestions only begin to get at the problem. They are a start, however, to a solution of the environmental difficulties which threaten us. The question we must all ask ourselves is: “Am 1 concerned enough to reduce my impact on the environment, or am 1 willing to further degrade it for the sake of convenience?" 17 I’ktMiu hv Dai CrthortPhoto by Hill Mi lehr 11 The Wisconsin River Environment « 18“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” Aldo Leopold Introduction to “A Sand County Almanac” 19The Environment Within .... BY SANDY HEMAUER A college student spends more than 75 percent of his time each week outside the classroom. Because of this, campus facilities — particularly residence halls — are vital to a student’s total educational experience. Does the atmosphere of the WSU-SP residence halls enhance or detract from the student’s learning experience? Why do so many students willingly move off-campus? These questions have been considered by the Departments of Campus Planning and Student Housing at WSU-SP. Both offices have expressed concern about the psychological effects residence halls have on students; they also agree that out-of-class life is an important part of the process of learning. They feel that residence hall complexes are characterized by an air of uniformity and sterility which can stifle individuality. Fred Leafgren, Director of Student Housing, states that the existing complexes were designed and built to be inexpensive for the taxpayer and the student, resulting, for example, in the uniformity among the halls in the DeBot Complex. Leafgren believes that the architectural and behavioral sciences are merging, and that future residence halls should be designed to “fit the human condition.” Emphasis, a quarterly publication of the WSU-SP Alumni Association, devoted its Winter, 1970, issue to the campus environment. Raymond Specht, Campus Planner, submitted an article entitled “Let’s Hold Out For The Individual,” which stated in part that “. . . learning takes place in the mind of the student, no matter where he is on campus.” William Stielstra, Vice President for Student Affairs, wrote in the same publication of the atmosphere ol “impersonality and anonymity” that existing residence halls create. The hundreds of identical rooms filled with immovable furniture are unrealistic and bring about a loss of identity in the student. Attempts are being made to personalize present facilities. Remodeling has been of particular interest. The basements of Delzell and Steiner Halls have been changed to offer the student more “living room.” The Allen Center basement will be converted into a snack bar. The division of residence halls into “wings” is another try at personalization. Groups of approximately 25 students live together and are encouraged to plan and participate in numerous wing activities. Some students, however, resent the conformity which results from identifying with these small groups. Leafgren says that the next housing complex will consist of apartment-type residences. Kitchen facilities, movable furniture, and additional space are some of the major assets of this plan. The Program Statement for this future complex makes it clear that this sort of setting will be unlike existing rooms in which “. . . form and arrangement become redundant and they (students) begin to seek out other environments that are more stimulating to them.” In the proposed complex, students will be more comfortable and “at home” with university life. They will also be afforded experiences in home management, meal planning, and budgeting — all toward a more realistic and enriching environment. 20Campus Organizations Promote Environmental Causes BY LEON STRUNK If you're concerned about the declining quality of our human environment, you'll want to do something about it. But the problems of pollution and overpopulation often seem too big for individuals to tackle. Want to become part of the solution? The organizations described in this article provide a variety of ways in which you as a WSU-SP student can become personally and responsibly involved in the most important issues of the day. ZPG The Population Bomb is more than the title of a book. Because food production has not kept pace with population growth, it is a growing threat to everyone. On campus and throughout the country. Zero Population Growth is at work on the problem, dispensing information and proposing solutions. Humanity faces danger on this hungry planet. You can help. For information about ZPG call Julie Cook, president of the campus chapter, at F.xt. 396, Neale Hall. CNRA Water, wildlife, and the land are the concerns of the Citizen's Natural Resources Association of Wisconsin. Headed by Frederick Baumgartner of WSU-SP's College of Natural Resources, CNRA gets the facts on pollution problems, initiates public hearings, retains legal counsel, and seeks the enforcement of existing anti-pollution laws or the enactment of new legislation if necessary. The recent statewide ban on the use of DDT is ir. large part a result of the CNRA's efforts. WRRC The Wisconsin River Restoration Committee, a branch of CNRA. is working on specific pollution problems. George Becker, originator of the WRRC, has proposed a "Wisconsin River Sanitary Authority” which offers a dramatic and effective solution to the problems of industrial and municipal waste disposal. The CNRA and WRRC would like more student participation. Contact Baumgartner at 339 Nelson Hall, or Becker at 241 Science Building. NAT Nu Alpha Tau is a student resource conservation society which is getting a fresh start on campus. Members of NAT were active in the April, 1970 Teach-In and have given talks and slide shows about ecology and natural resources at local high schools. Membership is open to all. For information, contact Peter Hahn at 716 Frederick Street. 3-14-0033. or James Newman. 337 Nelson Hall, Ext. 722. SCSA Another campus group that offers students a chance to do something about our abused world is the Soil Conservation Society of America. This organization seeks to orient students toward resource-related careers, and brings representatives of industry, soil scientists, and environmental specialists of all kinds to speak on campus. Members of the SCSA arc presently preparing a booklet that will help Portage County teachers present the problems of soil and water conservation to elementary students. An annual fee of three dollars entitles members to receive the Journal of Soil and Water Conservation. All WSU students arc invited to participate. Interested persons may contact the SCSA president, Jon Knight, at 2148-A Madison Street, or Byron Shaw, advisor, at 314 Nelson Hall. Ext. 717.SAVE LAKE SUPERIOR ASSOCIATION The Save Lake Superior Association is a campus group engaged in efforts to save Lake Superior from the pollution which has so seriously damaged the lower Great Lakes. Participation by all interested students and faculty is welcomed. Contact the president, John Hjorth, 3701 Robert Place, 344-3498, for further information. ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL An outgrowth of last semester's Environmental Teach-In, the Environmental Council is made up of representatives from student organizations concerned with furthering the cause of conservation. The aims of the Environmental Council are to coordinate the activities of the member organizations, create an awareness of man’s effects on his environment, and help solve the pollution problems of the state and the Stevens Point area in particular. For information contact Peter Hahn, 716 Frederick Street. 344-0033, or Dale Lang, 32 University Village, 341-4643. 22 Photo by Bill MitchellThe Ugly Man on Campus is more than just a look; it’s an annual event. Each participating organization or dorm hoping to claim the UMOC as its own enters its most disgustingly made-up member. The event was sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega, the national service fraternity. Each {jenny constituted one vote. Students contributed as much as they wished, and there was no limit to the number of times they could vote. All proceeds from the voting were used locally by the United Fund. This year’s Ugly Man on Campus winner was Dan “One Eye” Brehm, sponsored by the Siasefis. Their winning total of $98 came primarily through the sale of beer signs at Little Joe’s Drinking Establishment. Neale Hall topped other Dorm entrants with its total of $27. This year’s UMOC contest produced a grand total of $255.31. The Ugliest Man on Campus "One Eye”On Wednesday, Sept. 16, 1970 Sheriff Nick Check and other well armed members of the Sheriff’s Department surrounded a barn in the town of Sharon. The order to "move in" was given and their week-long stake out came to an end with the arrests of 21 year old Robert L. Pfeiffer and 22 year old Robert S. Pieczyk. Inside the bam was the cause of their arrest — $25,000 worth of marijuana. This figure, set by Sheriff Check, was based on the present market value of the "grass." With the State pressing for Pfeiffer's and Pieczyk’s indictment on charges of illegal possession with intent to sell marijuana, a good defense was the only feasible solution short of a jailbreak. Unfortunately, good lawyers, ones that make sense at least, are high priced. The answer to this was a combination of rock groups, vocalists, and the unifying force — a realization that “this could happen to me.” The Gridiron was the scene of coffee houses set up to raise contributions for a defense fund. No admission was charged as even the musicians donated their services. Donations were the backbone of the defense fund. Student response was gratifying, but expected, as it was realized that we cannot turn our backs on our fellow men when someday we may need their help, ourselves.

A baritone, tenor, bass, alto, and a soprano performed excerpts from various operas featuring much entertaining song and dialogue. The Elizabethan theater was recreated by the production of "An Entertainment for Elizabeth" by the New York Pro Musica performers. The twenty-four artists presented a pageant of Renaissance dance, costume, poetry and music. The group was formed seventeen years ago with the expressed purpose of making a unique contribution to international music. Highlights of the program was the sacred music written and performed in Europe during the middle ages.

He must have been a compassionate, thoughtful leader, for he took a young football player, seemingly destined to a life of knocking around his mountain homeland and, through encouragement and a scholarship, made it possible for him to go to college. Now his football player, who played offensive guard at Colorado State University, is thankful. So thankful that he, too, wants to help young men find themselves. He is doing just that as head football coach at Stevens Point State University. Although Coach Pat O’Halloran’s-Pointers completed a disappointing season, he’s not pressing the panic button just yet. “I've been this route before,” he said. Before coming here two years ago, O’Halloran has led teams from losing seasons to championships at every school he’s coached. “I’ve been very lucky,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to be with teams that, at some point, have been in a championship. I’ve worker! with some exceptional football players.” His 79-45-3 overall record, though, suggests he’s had exceptional teams, as well. “There was no shortcut to altering the way things went this year,” he remarked. “Lack of experience was the determining factor in all our games. Most members of our team are freshmen or sophomores. It seems that when you’re losing, things just keep going wrong, and when you’re winning, the opposite is true.” When asked what makes a team successful. O’Halloran replied, “Every winning team I’ve been with has had one thing in common — a really good attitude.” Considering Pat O’Halloran’s positive attitude and excellent record, there is good reason for optimism about next year’s football team. 31 Photo by Danitl Ptrrrt32From Left — Coach Larry Clinton, John Schmidt, Charlie Brah, Ken Hynek, Paul Haus, Don Trzebiatowski, Don Hetzel, Charlie Upthagrove, Doug Riske.
