n Tuesday, Feb. 9, 1982 at 10:09 pm. my daughter, Amanda, was
born at St. Luke,s Hospital in Denver. The pregnancy had not been an easy
one for my wife, Ruth, and we were glad to get it over with. About three
months later, the book you are now holding in your hands was delivered to us
here on campus, and in a way, my own lipregnancyf which had lasted nearly a year, was
finally over too. Unfortunately for my wife, she had to bear the brunt of the pregnancy
alone; luckily for me, several highly capable people shared my burdens in getting out this edi-
tion of the Kynewisbok. I would like to mention a few of them.
First of all, Pd like to thank my loyal and hard-working colleagues on the K-Book
staff: Shaunna Forister, Mike Gallegos and Colleen Kent worked with me most
closely on day-to-day production; Phil Ostrofsky, Mark Scheffel, Saulo Mendez, Martha
Killebrew, Lori Walter and the other photographers were extremely reliable; my thanks to
Denise Moore for her inspired art, and Mitch Roberts for superb sports coverage; Bob
Bergman for managing sales and Lexie Lyons for keeping the books so delicately balanc-
ed, and the bills paid on time.
Mrs. Hasty over at Student Life helped us keep our cash flow flowing, while Dan
Hulitt and Mr. McGee cooperated with us in very important ways. The cashiers in Old
Main took our funny pricing system in their stride, and Kay Alig and the entire Board of
Communications provided good advice and much encouragement. Sandy Krause at the
Clarion made typesetting a pleasure, and Dr. Gerald OiKeefe in the mass communica-
tions dept. gave invaluable help in copywriting style and technique.
The Pioneer awards committee worked quickly and efficiently on such short notice,
and Dave Von Drehle opened the Clarionls photo file to us many times.
Our printers, Hunter Publishing Co., of Winston-Salem, NC, once more gave the
kind of personal care and service that makes them very special folks. We are indebted to
Belinda Timberlake, Sue Poovey, Mark Kullberg and Rod Hunter, as well as Grace,
Roger and all the conscientious workers in the production departments of that company,
who saved our necks on many an occasion, and gave us such a fine product.
Delma Studios of New York took our student portraits and proved themselves to be
reliable, decent and honest brokers. Thank you Phil Sitbon and 91D? Devane.
Thanks are due to all those people on campus we interviewed, received information
from, asked for favors and hassled; who posed for our cameras, wrote special essays or
articles for us, and generally made deadlines a little easier to meet. In general, people on
this campus were wonderfully supportive to all of us engaged in producing this edition of
Finally, a very special thank-you to my wife for putting up with me during the times
when the job demanded all of my time and energies; when I missed appointments and
stayed out long and late.
Thank you all.

Ronald Reagan became the nation's
fortieth president January 20th, 1981.
The Reagan Administration began
to reorganize the countryis priorities,
both at home and abroad. The
mood of the people grew conserva-
tive. It was as if everyone had grown
tired of the confrontation politics of
the sixties and seventies. The street
demo was iout'-at least for the

fashion reflected a new, more sober
approach to the new decade, in
strong contrast to the wild party of
the sixties and the long hangover of
the seventies. uWerenit the seventies
a drag?" asked John Lennon, a few
days before he was shot dead outside
his home in New York in the last
days of 1980.
iiOh, no, ifs all happening again,"
we groaned, as we watched over
and over again on TV the images of
panic and confusion which erupted
on a Washington sidewalk as a
Colorado man, John Hinckley, shot
at the President one dn'zzly afternoon
in early April. Miraculously, the
President was not too seriously wound-
ed. A month later, this time on the
streets of the Vatican, more shots
were fired, and the man who fell
was Pope John Paul H. Once again,
although more badly hurt than Reagan,
the victim of senseless violence
survived. The world could scarcely
believe its good fortune.
hile Americans were redis-
covering their self-esteem,
and learning how to once
more wave their flag with-
out guilt, the rest of the world
trudged on much as before. In
Ireland, the death by starvation of
hunger strikers Bobby Sands and
other IRA members in pursuit of
political-prisoner status fanned the
flames of still more suffering and
killing of innocent people in the
northern provinces. Poland's labor
unrest kept the country teetering on
the brink of Soviet invasion, as their
economic situation worsened. Spain,s
fledgling democracy was challenged
by a group of military officers, who
held the parliament at gunpoint for
several hours, but in the end failed
to take over the country. A new
president, a socialist, was elected in
France. In the Persian Gulf the oil
kept flowing as the stalemated war
between Iraq and Iran dragged on.
And in the Middle East, the Syrians
created a new crisis by setting up
Soviet missiles aimed at Israel, and
Israel sparked new controversy by
destroying a nuclear reactor plant in
Iraq, claiming it was to be used for
making nuclear weapons.

January to June 1981
Space does not permit a compre-
hensive review of everything of interest
or importance which took place
during 1980, but in the following
pages we try to recap some of the
major developments and trends which
helped to shape our lives, and
seemed to have the potential to
change those offuture generations.
Maybe twenty or thirty years from
now, the reader of these columns
will be amused by the issues we
considered important; what is prob-
ably more likely is that he or she
will discover that our burning issues
were not that differentfrom those
being faced by the readeris own
5 Jimmy Carter left the
national stage and returned
to private life to write his
memoirs, the Democrats,
who never really wholeheartedly
supported his reelection campaign,
were in tatters. For the first time in
a quarter of a century, Republicans
had a majority in the Senate.
As the Democrats began their
soul-searching and revamping of
positions to woo again the voters
who had deserted them, the Repub-
licans, who had been in a similar
situation after the Watergate scandal,
reigned supreme. They seemed in
tune with the national mood, their
axes and scissors at the ready. To
the horror of their opponents, Repub-
licans said they were going to chop
budgets, trim federal legislation and
give the states more money to spend
as their legislatures saw fit. To the
Democrats this represented an un-
doing of nearly every good program
they had struggled to set up since New
Deal times; to the Republicans, it was
a long overdue streamlining of a
governrnent bureaucracy they Saw as
interfering too much in people's lives
The main problem the Republican;
faced was how to take away the
federal largesse and leave smiling
the people who were being deprived
of it. They needed a leader who
could make it seem a warm and
friendly thing to do, since appeals
for economic restraint usually lose
out in battles with the Pocketbook,
Ronald Reagan did not let them
down. The man who had failed so
often to get his partyis nominatiOn
before, even losing to Gerald Ford
in 1976, the man whom many
considered a has-been, too old for
the grind of campaigning and iicut
and thrust" of politics, the man
whose ultra-patriotic line had seemed
so out of touch with average American
values in previous years, Ronald
Reagan almost breezed through his
campaign. In doing so he gave the
lie to those who said he was too old,'
too out of it to lead anything or
anyone. The country was simply
ready for him, and he ready for it.
Despite his early career as a iBl
movie actor who had starred in
some fifty instantly forgettable films,
Reagan proved that his camera
training could be indispensable in a
presidential campaign. His movie
experience helped him more than it
harmed him. The Reagan style.
always cheerful, always with a good
one-liner to whizz by the media boys
leven when he had been shoti made
him good TV material, and thus,
many would argue, good presidential
material. At any rate, his understand-
ing of communication helped him
avoid many, if not all, of the pitfalls
which beset many a politician.
y 1981, it seemed as if the
production of energy from
oil shale in Colorado was
finally going to begin on a
massive scale, after years of false
starts. To meet the nations needs,
said C. C. Garvin of Exxon, north-
western Colorado would have to be
turned into a iinational energy zonei,
in which the normal rules of environ-
mental protection would not apply.
The rationale: the world's largest
reserves of kerogen-laden shale rock
are in the state, mainly in the north-
western quadrant. The problem: get-
ting fuel out of the rock is a messy
business, and trying to reach Con-
gressi goal of a half million barrels
a day by 1987 worried environmental-
ists, who expected the area to be
totally ruined. They feared that the
energy boom would bring millions of
temporary workers into the state,
destroy the ecology of millions of
acres of the nations most scenic
terrain, and place unmanageable
burdens on the states water resources.
If Exxonls forecasts were right,
the US. will be using 30 million
barrels of oil per day by 2010,
double its 1981 daily consumption.
981 was the year in which
ten new skyscrapers began
to be constructed in Denver.
Thus, within a few years,
the city which was being hailed as
the nationls newest energy capital
would really start to look the part. A
sleepy Western town no more, Denver
was already boasting the 36-story
Amoco Building, the twin Great
West Plaza towers and the 26-story
Denver National Bank. Among the
new buildings would be the one built
to replace the historic old Republic
building, torn down in 1981, the
City Center, the United Bank Center,
the Dominion Plaza, the Stellar Plaza,
17th Street Plaza and the Tabor
Rise of the
he religious organization
which made the most news
in the first half of 1980
was, by far, the Moral
Majority, the fundamentalist sect
led by TV evangelist Jerry Falwell.
Having stumped for Reagan in the
election of 1980, both in and out of
the pulpit, Falwell made many ene-
mies, including the ACLU tAmerican
Civil Liberties Unionl, which ran ads
early in the year saying, uIf the
Moral Majority gets its way, yould
better start praying." Television pro-
ducer Norman Lear liiThe Jeffersons,"
iiAll In The Family? protested
the New Christian Rightls labeling
as a poor Christian anyone who
disagreed with their views. Some-
what surprisingly, the Rev. Billy
Graham said he didn't wish to be
identified with them, noting that
iievangelists canlt be closely identified
with any party or person" However, he
admitted that he hadn,t been faithful
to his own advice in the past, and
promised to do so in the future.
Moral Majorityis Jerry F alwell
Despite the criticism, the MM
was enjoying great success in its
self-appointed role as watchdog of
American morals. Congress seemed
partial to banning all federal aid for
abortions except in cases where the
mother's life was at stake. The
Coalition for Better Television, a
special TV monitoring group com-
prised of the Moral Majority, the
Rev. Donald Wildmon's National
Federation for Decency and other
organizations, was beginning to pres-
sure US. corporations which spon-
sored TV shows the groups polls
found to be offensive to its members.
Unless those firms did not act to
clean up udirt, profanity, vulgarity
and sexii on TV, their products and
services would be boycotted;
On the last day of June, just when
it seemed that the campaign was about
to begin, Wildmon announced that
the boycott was off. He said his organ-
ization was satisfied that advertisers'
would in the future be more responsible
in choosing shows for sponsoring. The
announcement followed a series of se-
cret meetings between Wildmonis or-
ganization and representatives of
major TV advertisers.

I . .
n mid-l981, a fascinating
letter turned up which
seemed to challenge the
leadership hierarchy of the
Utah Mormon Church tmore properly,
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saintsi. Written by Founder
Joseph P. Smith, Jr., in 1844, the
letter clearly decreed that ii . . . the
anointing of the progenitor shall be
on the head of my son, and his seed
after him, from generation to genera-
tion." The document apparently did
not unduly trouble the Mormons.
They calmly traded it for an 1833
Mormon book, valued at $20,000,
with the Missouri-based Reorganized
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints, who have always chal-
lenged the validity of Brigham Young,s
succession to Joseph P. Smith, and
the leadership of the Utah Mormons
by the senior member of the Quorum
of Twelve Apostles. The Missouri
group has always been led by a
descendant of Smith.
Cults were also doing well in
1981. The Way, an Ohio-based group
boasting 30,000 members and led
by Victor Paul Wierville, sent musi-
cal ambassadors to Denver early in
the year in the form of the pop band
8Takit," which performed at Colorado
Womenis College. The Ways teach-
ings included the notion that the
Nazi's mass murder of six million
Jews never occurred, that rock music
is bad for the mind, and that, in
Wierville,s words, uChristians aren,t
a bunch of lollipops . . . If you have
to kick a few butts, well, you have to
The Rocky Mountain News noted
in an editorial towards the middle of
the year that the IRS was finally
catching up with some of the approx-
imately 10,000 Americans who each
year send away for bogus certificates
ordaining themselves ministers, in
order to donate their property to
their "ministry" and thus escape
taxation. But up to mid-year, the

nation's coasts. Apparently, Moon's

ations was too complex to be easily
he seventies bequeathed
to the eighties a steady
increase in violent crime.
By 1979, according to FBI
estimates, 535 persons out of every
100,000 were victims of violent
crime, an increase of 15078 over 1970.
By other estimates, a person was
murdered in the US. every 24 min-
utes, a woman raped every seven, a
house burglarized every ten. Things
did not seem to have improved
since the spring of 1980, when a
nationwide survey of 1,047 adults,
carried out by the public relations
company of Ruder and Finn, showed
that four out of ten Americans were
1highly fearful" of becoming victims
of violent crime. In the survey, high
marks were given to the police, low
marks to the criminal justice system
in dealing with persons arrested by
the police and charged with a crime.
These sentiments were shared
by no less a personage than Chief
Justice Warren Burger, who let the
nation know, in very explicit terms,
of his concern over rising crime.
Calling for more tax dollars to be
spent fighting crime, Burger noted
that while a shocking one in four
Americans is likely to be a victim,
only one in 108 of persons arrested,
according to a New York Times
report, is likely to be punished in
The Chief Justice pointed out
that a great many of the 300,000
persons serving time in prison in
1981 were under the age of 30, and
that a majority could not meet basic
reading, writing and arithmetic stan-
dards. His proposals to remedy the
situation included tighter bail release
conditions, faster trials, improved
educational facilities for criminals,
more family visitation rights for
inmates, and after-release counseling
programs. Said he: iiThis illness our
society suffers has been generations
developing, but we should begin at
once to divert the next generation
from the dismal paths of the past
and try to make homes and schools
and streets safe for all."
n an effort to make the
ailing US. auto industry
more competitive, the Rea-
gen Administration in April
1981 eliminated thirty-four air quality
and safety regulations from American
cars. The estimated savings were
$1.3 billion to automakers and $8
billion to consumers over the first
half of the 19805. Among the rules
taken off the books: bumpers that
withstand 5 m'ph crashes without
denting, fuel-efficiency standards due
to take effect after 1985, and
automatic seat belts which had been
scheduled for introduction in 1982.
By early 1981, the average GM
car was costing $10,000. Sales
were going so badly for American
carmakers that they were offering
rebates worth up to $700 to anyone
who would buy one of their cars.

The Royal Wedding
On Wednesday, July 29, 1981, at
11 a.m., at St. Paulis Cathedral, Lon-
don, England, the wedding took place
of H.R.H. Charles, Prince of Wales,
32, and Lady Diana Spencer, 20, a
ttcommonertt from a well-connected
English family. It was a major event by
any standards: as the future monarch of
Great Britain, Charlest marriage was
bound to attract a lot of attention. But
two ingredients spiced up the occasion,
turning it into a media event of im-
mense proportions. First, the bride was
young and beautiful and second, the
timing of the wedding was perfect, com-
ing as it did when Britain was being
besieged by street riots in several cities
in England, and civil disturbances in
Somehow, everyone seemed ready
for the good news. Millions tuned in,
sharing in the romance being marketed
and packaged by the British into a show
of shows which only they could put on.
It was estimated that 750 million peo-
ple - one sixth of the worlds population
- watched the royal wedding on televi-
sion. They became familiar with all the
minutiae surrounding the occasion, and
they wallowed in it: the mystery recipe
for the official wedding cake, which was
4V2 feet high and weighed 225 lbs; the
secrecy shrouding the wedding gown
until that final moment when Lady Di
descended from her glass carriage out-
side St. Paqu to reveal a silk gown with
a 25 ft. train; the fireworks display,
claimed to be the largest Britain had
seen in 250 years; the fact that Charles

MXes in Utah Axed
n early October, President
Reagan made his long-
awaited decision on where to
put the controversial MX in-
tercontinental missiles. He decided to
drop the Carter idea of shuttling 200
MX missiles among 4,600 covered
launching pads in isolated desert areas
of Nevada and Utah. Instead, Reagan
decided to place about 100 in existing
sites where Minuteman and Titan
rockets are currently based.
While the decision was applauded
by those who were against such a
massive project invading the quiet
desert areas of Utah and Nevada, and
by economists who shuddered at the
cost lsome estimates reached $100
billionl, not to mention the en-
vironmentalists who feared that the
region's water supply could not sup-
port such an influx of people and
technology. it nevertheless received
The Denver Post wondered
editorially if Americans had perhaps
been the itvictims of a propaganda
campaign calculated to stoke fears"
since it had been stressed in earlier
months that the Soviet strike capability
could easily wipe out the existing
missile sites, and that an elaborate
guess-where-they-are strategy was re-
quired to ride out such an attack.
Columnist Joseph Kraft wrote
that, while he supported the decision,
since he had never believed in lkeven
the remote possibility of a Soviet at-
tackf' the alternative Reagan plan
would only lead to a iidestructive
debate? since as a candidate Reagan
had campaigned forcefully on the
need to tlclose the window of strategic
vulnerabilityll opened by the Soviet
arms build-up. liEveryone has to
wonder if Reagan . . . knows what
he's doing," wrote Kraft.
It was a long and bitter campaign
and it ended without doing much to
resolve any of the problems which had
caused it to be waged in the first
place: on Sun. Oct. 3. 1981. the IRA
called off the hunger strike which had
been going on among its members im-
prisoned in the Maze Prison in Belfast.
The seven-month fast had left 10
dead and in its early months had calls

demands for political prisoner status in
By political status. the IRA meant
that its incarcerated members should
be exempt from prison work and not

n Tuesday, October 5, 1981,
Anwar Sadat, President of
Egypt, was assassinated.
Sadat and several of his
highest government officials were at-
tacked by a group of men wearing
military uniforms during a military
parade in a Cairo suburb. As several
jets overhead roared by in precise for
mation, one of the trucks with troops
passing by suddenly halted in front of
the presidents reviewing stand and
out tumbled the assassins, firing
machine guns and throwing hand
grenades and other incendiary
devices. Within seconds the mission
was accomplished: at the height of a
parade designed to show off the might
power and security of Egypt against
attack by her enemies, the countryls
leadership was instantly reduced to a
confused pile of bodies writhing under
a heap of overturned chairs.
For several hours the official word
from Cairo was that the President had
been wounded but was not in a iilife-
threatening" situation. But slowly the
news began to filter out. One by one
the major American TV networks, led
by CBS, and the international wire
services relayed the somber message,
still officially denied, from a number of
usually highly reliable sources: Sadat
had not survived.
The networks, which began
reporting the attack on the morning
news shows, stayed on the air until
early afternoon, pre-empting all
scheduled programming until the of-
ficial announcements were made. Just
before noon Denver time, Egyptian
Vice-President Hosni Mubarak went
on Egyptian TV to advise his nation of
the tragedy and announce various
cabinet decisions. A state of emergen-
cy for one year was declared. Shortly
after, President Reagan appeared on
the White House north steps to make
a short, eloquent speech about the
slain leader, whom he regarded as a
personal friend, although they had on-
ly met for the first time two months
earlier when Sadat had paid him a
visit in Washington. As the President
was citing Sadatls courage, statesman-
ship and foresight, no doubt he was
remembering the kindness and con-
cern the now dead leader had shown
towards him after Reagan himself had
been on the receiving end of an
In Israel, Prime Minister Begin
said that Sadat had been murdered by
the uenemies of peacefl but vowed
that the Camp David peace process
would continue, iias President Sadat
would have wished?
While the Western democracies
mourned the loss of the former self-
confessed hater of Israel who had, in
the last five years, dared to stand up
for peace in the Middle East, many of
his former allies in the Arab world
openly rejoiced at his death. Libyan
dictator Moammar Khadafy warned
that future Egyptian leaders who
followed Sadatls traitorous policies
would meet the same fate.
Sadafs murder led most com-
mentators to worry about the whole
balance of power in the Middle East.
Would his successors pursue peace
with Israel at the expense of peace
with other Arab countries as he had
done? Was Camp David in jeopardy?
Should the Saudis now be allowed to
have those AWAC planes they wanted
to buy, or would that make the area
even more unstable?
It seemed as if Reagan would, in
the months to come, have to face in
the Middle East an even greater threat
of Soviet destabilization than he was at
the time monitoring in Poland. But it
was former President Jimmy Carter
who, only hours after Sadatis passing,
summed up what the Egyptian leader
had meant to him and the world: of
the hundred or so world leaders he
had met in his time in public office,
said Carter, Anwar Sadat was the
ciliation among peoples?

The evening of Saturday, July 19
was a festive one in one of Kansas Ci-
tyls newest and most popular watering
holes - the Hyatt Regency Hotel
downtown. For a few weeks, hun-
dreds of people had shown up on Fri-
day evenings for the kind of old
fashioned dances being held in the
large, spacious foyer area.
On the walkways above the
dancers, crowds of people laughed,
chatted, listened to the music of the live
band and tapped their feet in time.
Maybe that was what did it.
All of a sudden the walkways
started to give way. In a flash they were
tumbling down, people and all, onto
the dancers below. In a few seconds the
hotels foyer looked like it had been
bombed. Many people were killed in-
stantly, others died after fruitless at-
tempts to save their lives by the
paramedics and other relief squads
which rushed to the scene.
The death toll was finally placed at
114. It was a terrible tragedy which
took place on a warm summerls night.

to take back, or water down some of

l u HI MOON"
Juvenile Justice In Perspective
by Dana U. Wakefield
Every year, we hear renewed cries from the public for law and
order, stiffer prison sentences for Violent and repeat criminals, and
for something to be done about the increasing rate of juvenile delin-
quency and teenage prostitution. How much do we hear by com-
parison about child abuse, neglect, and incest?
If we want something done about crime, delinquency, and
prostitution, then we must lobby our legislators as zealously
for more and better utilized resources for treating child abuse
and neglect as we lobby for stiffer sentences and more prison
Juveniles do not become burglars, auto thieves, and the
like by suddenly deciding one day that crime sounds like a fun
way to pass an otherwise boring Saturday evening without a
date; adults do not become criminals because they got sick of
work or their wife and kids and decided one day that rape,
murder, and embezzlement better suited their life style;
teenage girls and boys do not unexpectedly throw off their
cheerleading outfits and football uniforms in exchange for
the garb 0f the street prostitute so as to earn a quick buck or
to add a little spice to their lives. These unacceptable aberra-
tions from the norm were seeded long before they came into
public View as a crime statistic. Long ago in childhood, the
pattern was set.
There are those professionals who will tell you that they
can watch a childis interaction with his parents at four to six
months and predict what is in store for that child as he
develops. That is not entirely overstated. Consider some of
the tirelations back,l from later problems to earlier childhood
experiences: some studies claim that children who are not
cuddled and offered ample physical affection as infants are
likely to develop more violent personalities; the majority of
juvenile delinquents suffer from some form of learning
disability a while learning disabilities are arguably organic,
they may well be rooted in or substantially contributed to by
poor parenting; a majority of teenage prostitutes have a
history of sexual abuse by fathers, brothers, uncles,
neighbors, etc.; the vast majority of the prisoners in the Col-
orado State Penitentiary were abused or neglected as
children; most of the parents we see in juvenile courts for
abuse or neglect of their children were abused or neglected
themselves when they were children. From generation to
generation, the chain often seems unbreakable. Please do not
make the mistake, however, of turning the statistics around
and concluding from all of this that abused children will
necessarily abuse their children or become criminals, that all
sexually abused children will grow up to be prostitutes, that
all children with learning disabilities will become juvenile
delinquents, or that all children who do not receive enough
affection will become violent.
Admittedly, our society has not found the key to curing
criminality or rehabilitating criminals. We must face the reali-
ty that some adults must be imprisoned to protect society. We
may have failed the criminal when he was a child by not pro-
tecting him from abuse or neglect, but there comes a time
when that person must take responsibility for himself and
cannot forever expect us to forgive and forget his crimes just
because we understand what made him the way he is.
Dana Wakefield went to law school at DU and is now ajudge 0n the Denver Juvenile Court. See "People" section, p 120.
The juvenile delinquent poses a more difficult case. The
age of the culprit is of no consequence to the innocent victim,
and society must be protected from a lawbreaker no matter
what age. Yet, we hold on to the hope that with timely in-
tervention we can still rehabilitate a juvenile and divert him to
productive citizenship. Of course, had we been able to in-
tercept the childis plight at an earlier time prior to his delin-
quent involvements, we might have been able to protect him
from abuse and neglect or to diagnose his learning
The status offender, on the other hand, has become the
focus of public attention for different reasons. The public, or
at least a pseudo-liberal faction thereof, has become incensed
over the idea of locking up these juveniles who have done no
criminal wrongs but have only run from home or have other-
wise become beyond the control of their parents or who have
been caught on the streets after curfew, etc. The solution has
been to change our laws to prevent the institutionalization of
these children; rather, we should ensure that behind that lock-
ed door is a professionally staffed treatment facility. If the
door is locked and treatment is provided in a setting from
which the child cannot run, the child has not been deprived of
any liberty; but, if the child is allowed to continue to run
away, then that child will likely be imprisoned in a life of
crime and prostitution. We cry in righteous outrage, as well
we should, about those beasts known as pimps who prey upon
our runaway children; but if we, in the name of liberty, let
our children run the streets without treatment, then we are the
The runaway child is not running to prostitution, drugs,
and crime; rather that child is running awayfrom something.
It is usually that same something which we have been discuss-
ing - physical or emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or parental
neglect. The abusive parent is acting out what he or she learn-
ed by example in his or her own childhood.
Our college diplomas and graduate degrees may make it
possible for us to be successful doctors, lawyers, teachers,
etc., and may even make it possible for us to wage a more and
more successful battle against the problems we have been
discussing, but every graduate should understand that if we
have not become better parents to each succeeding generation
of children, then our diplomas and degrees are little more that
pieces of parchment or, at most, temporary stopgap measures
in combatting some of societyls worst ills. The most impor-
tant profession practiced by any person who raises a child is
the profession of parenting. It is the profession which should
command the greatest respect and which has the greatest im-
pact on our society. A person who has elected to pursue
parenting as a full-time profession, and is successful in this
endeavor, should be as highly revered as our doctors, lawyers,
and yes, even our judges.
TheWriter as Teacher
by Seymour Epstein
eing a teacher, being in touch with the young,
disallowed a brooding, self-destructive retreat.
Being a teacher confirmed what I had been,
or what I still hoped to be: a writer.
There is absolutely no connection between the two,
but I have noticed, indeed many have noticed, that in
the years that I have been involved as teacher in the
creative writing program here at DU there has been a
remarkable growth of such programs throughout the
country. And not only in the colleges and universities,
but in all sorts of groups and associations. Some of you
may have seen that article in the Sunday book review
section of the New York Times of March 1 of this year.
The title was: 2Unsolicited, Unloved Manuscripts."
The article contained some heart-stopping figures. I
quote: 2Every year some 30,000 unsolicited novel
manuscripts are sent to publishing houses, and nearly
ten times that many short stories arrive unbidden on the
desks of magazine fiction editors and readers across
the country . . . A senior editor at Knopf says that 250
novel-length manuscripts show up at the house every
week . . . Most places dont even read unsolicited fiction,
and many more wonit sent the stuff back if the sender
hasnlt enclosed return postage. The annual odds against
publication: novels, approximately 29,998 to 2; stories,
249,511 to 489 . . . i,
...There have always been people who wanted to
writeetrueebut why are there proportionately so
many more now? I agree with the New York Times writer
when he says that. . . 2it helps people give some shape

g t up w1th us and we are now living the full
effect of what he had to say.
It was all very well- even exhilarating and liberating-
to learn of the evolution of life on earth. The Old
Testament, ironically enough, became for many the
supreme myth, a work of the literary imagination. But
the myth has been a long time in removing itself from
the general imaglnation. The poet, as always, found a
way of putting it. In his poem, liThe Second Coming?
Yeats declares, iiThings fall apart; the center cannot

thirty years later.

they can give both credence and devotion. Perhaps
there is no Great Book in the Sky in which even the most
insignificant life will not go unnoticed. And if this is
inescapably true for many, then a terror strikes the bean.
In a way, its somewhat like the discovery I made about
my students. Our experiences were different, but the
species remained the same, had the same machinery of
response to deal with altered conditions. So, similarly,
those who suddenly found the universe an indifferent
and frightening place had the same machinery of
response that the ancients did. The ancients hadto
invent stories, poetry, to explain the reason and wonder
of their presence on earth. Contemporary man and
woman have exactly the same response.
If there is no grand scheme, then I shall have to
concoct my own small one. If my name and my life may
go unrecorded, then I will have to do the recording
myself. This, I believe, is one of the reasons pubhsh1n,g
offices are deluged with unwanted manuscripts" Theres
just too much of it all at once to be explained by the get-
rich-quick fever. It is, I believe, a fever of anothif
kind: a spiritual fever, breaking out in this verbal r'asht.

Rites of spring
fter the winter that never really arrived, spring finally showed up, bringing some late snows with it. But on those days when
e sun was out, students quickly got into the rituals of the season. A dab of tanning lotion on a pretty girl 19 back, a cozy chat
hile sharing a cup of cold liquid-just two of the wonderful rites of spring.
Handicapped children and older

chance to take part in a "Special

Approximately 150 competitors, aged

international food and cultural per-
formances," the event attracted a
lot of people at a cost of $6 per
person. So many tickets were sold,
in fact, that the patrons had to
stand in long queues for up to two

bluegrass band and beer was supplied
free by the DUPB.
On May 22, Sigma Chi Alpha

DU was a fairly
quiet place in the
summer 0f 81. For those
students who stayed for
the summer quarter, it was
a pleasant change from the
usual hustle and bustle. And
there was lots of time to go

cricket, or just float down a

he first few days on campus are possibly the most important in the life of a new
student. During this time he or she must be given a sense of belonging, a sense that
on his or her young shoulders are falling the traditions, customs and legacies of the
school, and for the next few years what the school accomplishes will be due to his or
her very own efforts.
The University of Denver schedules a comprehensive series of events and activities
designed to welcome and orient the student, and on the following pages we present scenes
from some of them.

Chilean Folk Singer Performs in Buchtel Chapel
On Wednesday, Nov, 8, 1981,
Chilean folk singer, Angel Parra,
presented a concert in Buchtel
Sponsored by L.A.S.O., the folk
singer presented an hour of authentic,
typical Chilean and Latin American
folk music to a crowd of about 100
people. His songs reflected the turmoil
present today in his native land. A
political refugee, Parra is one of the
hundreds of Chileans forced to leave
their country after a military coup
overthrew President Salvador Allende
in Sept. 1973.
Parra, together with his sister,
Isabel, are the children of the famous
folk singer Violeta Parra.

celebration of Black

Black Student Alliance and
its program board presented the Cleo
Parker-Robinson Dance Ensemble in
concert at the GCB. This was, accor-
ding to program producer Duane
Rich, a first for the B.S.A. and the
nature of the event was as much social
The company reflected the per-
sonality of Ms. Parker-Robinson -
energetic, enthusiastic and gregarious.
In spite of frustrating technical pro-
blems tparticularly with the sound
systemi, Ms. Parker-Robinson and
company remained charmingly poised.
The concert was also flawed in its
organization - too many intermissions
and awkward set changes - but the au-
dience was in a tolerant mood.
The opening piece, ttPercussion
Suitef by guest choreographer Rod
Rodgers was the best crafted and most
aesthetically satisfying work. It was a
dance to and about the bells cymbals
and sticks the dancers wore or carried.
The ever building and shifting
dynamics were very effective. The
dancers displayed strong technical
skills and a good sense of ensemble.
Ms. Robinsons work-in-progress

piece, suffering from over use of
cliches and a pretentiousness derived

by the audience. It seems to best

celebration and sharing of some of the

to be commended for bringing the
dance ensemble to campus.

in every movie year, there are spectal

One film that was not fun to

the studio, the Las Vegas strip and
other scenic wonders. The movie was
praised and panned and audiences
have yet to make up their minds.

struggle of two British runners to com-
pete in the 1924 Olympics in Paris
contained no violence no sex, and no
rough language - a feat which made
its success even more spectacular.
Attempts at seriousness were
made by Paul Newman and Sally
Field in Absence of Malice. Though
a box office hit, the film was a
schlocky attempt to glamorize jour-
nalism and show journalists as ultra-
glamorous personalities who drive ex-
otic sports cars on a reporterls salary
and sleep with their sources. Sorry.
Taps starred Americals latest
heartthrob, Timothy Hutton, as the
leader of a student group opposed to
the closing of their military academy.
Hutton was great. the film was not.
Steve Tesich, who wrote the
screenplay for the bonanza Breaking
Away, attempted a followup with
Four Friends. Dealing with the tur-
bulence of being young in the 1960s
Tesich failed to show the youth of the
day any different from the youth of to-
day and the cluttered Four Friends

Few attempts were made at com-
edy during the year. Expecting great
things from Monty Pythonis Terry
Gilliam, audiences waited for the
opening of Time Bandits, which
turned out to be a Monty Python ver-
sion of The Wizard of Oz. The fan-
tasy about midgets falling through
holes in space was cute though, and
audiences put it into the top ten for
the year. John Belushi's Neighbors
Attempts at innovation were
made in the revival of 3-D movies in-
cluding Comini At Ya! What resulted
was a hokey conglomeration of gags
designed to stun the audience and in-
sult their intelligence.
Also insulting was the Burt
Reynolds flick Sharkey's Machine.
Of the string of films featuring bizarre
violence and lots of muscle from
leading men, Sharkegfs Machine
was most successful despite strong
showings for the lowerent Vice

he Senate also asked the
Board of Trustees to re-
move from the chancellor
the power to suspend stu-
dents under a special provision
known as nEmergency Action One."
Jim McKnight, of the Student Ombuds-
man1s Office convinced the senators
that there was llno due process in
the system." 11A student may be
accused, convicted, and sanctioned
by one man-the chancellor," wrote
former Clarion editor Holly Harrison
in the newspaper in May. 11Hetshe
may have no access to a hearing
before the Conduct Review Board
and no recourse for appeal, except,
of course, through the chancellor."
The controversy began when
Chancellor Pritchard used "Emer-
gency Action One" to suspend for a
year a student accused of violent
behavior on campus.
No 11Clarion0, in summer of '81
The new management at the bi-
weekly campus newspaper, the 11Clar-
ion," decided that, since the news-
paper always ran at a loss during
the summer months due to lack of
advertising support, it would be
better not to publish at all between
June and September. The Board of
Communication agreed, and made a
small adjustment to their constitution
to allow the paper to close.
To wet everyone,s appetite for
what they had in store come fall,
the new staff, under the direction of
Dave Von Drehle, put out a 11mock"
edition a couple of days before the
end of Spring quarter.
The practice edition showed the 200 receive UAA awards

Wrote Von Drehle on page one:
uThe Clarion will look different.
The Clarion will better cover the
academic and research-related-
work which distinguishes our fac-
ulty and students.
The Clarion will contain some
stuff to make your blood boil.
The Clarion will have fewer
errors in writing and reporting.
The Clarion will become every-
body,s favorite newspaper in the
English language . . . "
No wonder then, that the entire
campus awaited resumption of publi-
cation with baited breath.

Monday, Sept. 14, 1981, was a big
day in the city of Denver1s newspaper
trade: the first issue of the Denver Post,
under the new ownership of the Times
Mirror Co., and the first issue of the new,
face-lifted Clarion, both hit the streets.
The Post, under new publisher Lee
J. Guittar, began a series of changes it
hoped would increase its circulation,
which had of late been sagging. The
Clarion was aiming to win for itself and
the campus it served, some of the
prestige and public opinion clout it felt it
had lost in recent years.
It would, of course, be several
months before any valid assessment of
failure or success could be made in
either case, but in the meantime the ef-

fall quarter to recognize the group on
campus, thus making it eligible for
AUSA funding. After a letter-to-the-

ponents of cults in general and The
Way in particular, the Senate
discovered that some of the six

panded their areas of research and
publishing into such areas as energy,
consumer affairs, environmental quali-

Poli Sci Controversy
1'. Dennis Judd resigned as
chairman of DUls political
science department on
June 30 over the non-hiring
of an applicant for the post of assistant
professor in the department. The ap-
plicant, Dr. Larry Mosqueda, who was
teaching at the University of Colorado
at Denver when he applied for the job,
filed affirmative action and civil rights
violation suits against DU, claiming
he was denied the job because of his
mass comm dept.
A survey of mass communcations
majors carried out by the Women in
Communications organization in
winter quarter 1981 revealed serious
dissatisfaction with the technical
facilities available in the department.
3096 of the 153 students polled said
they had seriously considered trans-
ferring out of the university due to
the lack of working TV, audio and
lilm equipment. Mass comm chairperson
Dr. Harry Spetnagel noted that the
equipment had been obsolete even
when it first came into the department,
and had simply ceased to function.
He estimated that good facilities
would cost about a quarter of a
million dollars, and would allow the
department to become a ilsort of in-
house university resource." This might,
however, liput too much pressure on
the department to be a service
organization," said Spetnagel.

In October, CWC had 94 daytime
students, only six of them seniors, and
an estimated $8 million debt. The
trustees of the womenis college had
invited DU to study whether it wanted
to assume responsibility for the debt
and the school, and perhaps make an
offer CWC could not refuse.
In a special editorial on the sub-
ject in mid-October, the Clarion
wrote that, despite the enormous debt,
DU should take over the ailing college
for two main reasons. First, DU would
get to use the Houston Performing
Arts Center, and thus avoid having to
build its own long-awaited center; se-
cond, and more important, the
Clarion felt that a takeover would
greatly enhance DUls national
prestige, launching the school iialong
the first tentative steps that almost all
of the most prestigious schools in the
country took at one time in their
By the end of October, DU had
sent its response to the CWC Board of
Trustees. Although the details were
not made public, it was clear that DU
did not feel it could turn the college
around quickly enough, especially if
CWC were to remain a iiwholly func-
tioning womenis collegef, a contingen-
cy placed on takeover by CWC.

On Oct. 27, a special election was
held on campus to fill two Senate
positions vacated at the end of spring
quarter. Five men and four women
contested the seats, which were both
for the College of Arts and Sciences.
At the end of the day, Trish
Campbell, a sophomore majoring in
speech pathology, and Mark Walker, a
freshman majoring in psychology,
emerged victorious, with 50 and 48
votes respectively. A total of 158 votes
were cast, out of an eligible electorate
of about 4,500 undergrads.
Commenting on the turnout,
Election Commissioner Julia Nord said

it was normal for a special election.

due before the end of winter quarter,
1982. One of the major changes in
that election, she said, would be the
placing of polling stations in several
important places on campus, instead
of just one tthe GCB lobbyl, as had
been the case in recent years.
Gay and Lesbian
On Wed, Nov. 11, 1981, the AUSA Senate
considered a request by a group called the Gay and
Lesbian Alliance for recognition and funding.
It was a fairly emotional meeting, and for over an
hour the pros and cons of recognition were debated,
not only by the senators, but by other interested
persons in the gallery who came to put forward their
views. Several members of the organization of
homosexuals were present.
In the end, the Senators voted 8-7 tno abstentionsl
in favor of recognition, but the proposal was still
defeated, since under the Senate constitution a two-
thirds majority is required for recognition of any new
After the meeting, one of the senators who favored
recognition told the K-Book that the group was denied
recognition because people were ill-educated about
what it would do in the way of counseling and general
service on campus, and also because too many people
still felt threatened by gays.
ttCollege is a place to try things, because if you fail,
you can sort of sweep it under the carpet. I feel these
people were denied the chance to try out their
organization, to either fail or succeed?
Those opposed to the Gay Alliancels recognition had
consistently argued throughout the discussion that while
they felt it was up to every individual to decide his or
her sexual preferences, and thus were not attempting
to sit in judgement on the organization, they simply did
not believe that student funds should be allocated to an
organization whose main function would apparently be
to provide a social meeting ground for persons of a
specific sexual preference.
Should We Move
Doris McCarty became the new
manager of DUls bookstore in March, 1981,
and as the fall quarter opened, students
benefitted from many of her ideas for im-
proving the stores service. New lines on
sale included magazines, greeting cards,
swimsuits and leotards, film, recording tape,
records and certain graphic artists materials.
As fall quarter progressed, the question
came up as to whether the bookstore
should move to the long-vacant Varsity
Lanes site on University Blvd. The
bookstorels current location would be used
for student offices, including those of the
The question was considered by the
Senate on Oct. 21. Vice-Chancellor for
Financial Affairs Richard Harrington told the
Senators that the move would be good for
the university, and would give the bookstore
a chance to improve its service even further.
The Senate approved the plan that night,
but retracted their endorsement the follow-
ing Wednesday evening after John Lake,
owner of Bloomsbury bookstore, which is a
few doors down from Varsity Lanes, told
the Senate that there might not be enough
of a market in that area for both businesses
to llcomplementl'each other. He did not
think that DU had been llrealistic in its ex-

Over 50 students contested the
fifteen senate seats; five ran for presiv
dent and two for vice-president. 1080
students voted in the election which
was held on Tuesday. Feb. 23, 1982
in the GCB lobby from 8 am. to 7
pm. It was the largest turnout of can-
didates since 1971, when 71 can-
dijates were on the ballot and some
1500 students voted.
A few candidates were dis-
qualified from the election because of
their failure to turn in their receipts of
expenses incurred in campaigning on
time. The maximum allowed for ex-
penses was $50 per person. Election
commissioners were Steve Maiselson,
Sue Biemesderfer and Render Wyatt;
assisting them were outgoing Senate
President Karen Brody, Senator Scott
Whitsett, and Dr. Cynthia Cherry of
the Student Life office.
Besides voting for their peers to
run the 1982-83 senate, students were
also given the opportunity to express
their views on two referendum issues.

rian Kitts, a 20-yearaold mass
communications junior, was appOinte d by
the Board of Communications in mid-
February to the editorship of the Clarion
for the 1982-83 academic year. The soft-spoken
sincere young man from Albuquerque, NM, might
seem somewhat too shy and self-effacing at first
glance to take the heat associated with that often
controversial position, but people who get to work
with him on a day-to-day basis vouch for the fact
that there is a lot of toughness, some may even
say hardheadedness, beneath his cherubic smile,
In commenting on his plans for the Clarion come fall
quarter, Brian,who is the papers current managing editor,
told the K-Book that under the 1981-82 editor, Dave Von
Drehle, the Clarion had made important strides in becom-
ing more responsive than ever before to the needs, opinions
and ideas of students on campus. ill think we made a good
start in this direction, and I think theres more interest in
what we printfl However, he would like to see the paper do
more investigative reporting, and cover certain areas more
comprehensively than has so far been the case.
iiThis may be a wierd analogy? he said, tibut a
newspaper is kind of like a beautiful actress - after you take
off all the makeup and so on, is there anything of real value
left? I think right now we are looking pretty good, but the
time has come to find out if we are any good at the truly
Brian brings much useful experience to his forthcoming
campus job. It will be his fourth year of working for the
Clarion; he has worked for a TV station in Albuquerque,
and also as an intern with United Cable. His primary interest
is in becoming the best reporter he can be, and in giving
others on campus a chance to hone their skills as well, by
working for the paper. ill donit think journalism at DU is
much different than on any other campus? he says. liln
general, college papers offer the only opportunity for would-
be journalists to gain experience. Thatls the Clarionis big-
gest job, I think?
Brian does not envisage a time in the coming years
when the paper will be totally financially independent from
the student senate, which currently funds about one fifth of
the papers Operating budget. The rest of the income is .
generated through advertising. He does not even consider It
to be his primary responsibility to ensure that the paper
makes a profit, although he expects that it will, with prudent
management, continue to be a modest profitamaker.
8A campus newspaper is probably the truest mirror 0
campus life at any one time in history. It should cover the
news of the day as well as reflect what people are thinking,
dancing, wearing and so forth. I think llm a pretty honest
and open person, and I hope to encourage students to ex-
Press their views to me more so the Clarion can better
reflect student life on this campus.w

from New Jersey, listed as her

as well as music and dancing.

Velia transferred to DU in 1978
from the University of St. Marys in
San Antonio, TX, in the middle of
her freshman year. And in her three
years on the DU campus she got
involved in planning and supervising
student events, serving on important
student boards, among other things.
From May 1979 to June 1981, Velia
was chairperson of the Board of
Communication, a Senate committee
charged with overseeing the three
major publications on campus-the
Kynewisbok, the Clarion, and FACE.
She also served on the Board of
Contingency from Sept. 179 through
the fall of 1980, and was a member of
Mortar Board and the social science
honorary Pi Gamma Mu. In her last
quarter at DU, Velia was chairperson
of the Homecominngarents Weekend
planning committee and was also one
of the planners of SOAR 181.
Velia was born in Peru in 1959 to a
Peruvian mother and an American
father. She has been living in the

Max Wycisk is the 37-year-old General Manager of
a radio station which began in 1970 as a DU student
organization, and is now in a crucial transitional stage
to becoming completely free of funding from the
The station is KCFR, which in the last year and a
half has begun to carve a special niche for itself in the
crowded air waves serving the Denver market. Located
in a small house a few feet away from the Clarion
newpaper offices, KCFR is an interesting example of
what student-initiated media can achieve with commit-
ment, hard work and community support.
Wycisk, whose mild-mannered voice has become
quite familar to listeners during the stations twice-
yearly fund-raisers which dominate its programming for
several days on end, began working for the station in
1973. He was hired as a program director two years
later, and was promoted to general manager in 1978.
He describes his job as being primarily one of fund-
raising, since, under a three-year plan worked out with
DUls administration, KCFR will cease to get university
funding after 1983. Currently, the station receives
about one-eighth of its $400,000 operating budget
from the university. The rest comes from community
membership fees, donations, the federal government
lKCFR has been an affiliate of National Public Radio
since 1973, and steadily increasing donations from
Wycisk explained that the station found itself in
1973 faced with a major decision, one that has deter-
mined its course ever since. Broadcasting with 10 watts
Of power from an antenna on the top of the Mary
Reed building, the station, which was playing mainly
underground rock at the time, was reaching listeners
within a two-mile radius only. It had been started for
students, and was being run mainly by students; but its
QUiding lights dreamed of reaching a wider audience,
and this sparked a heated debate in the senate as to
whether in doing so the station would still qualify for
AUSA student funds. At the time $24,000 of student
funds were going into the station each year. When the
station set up a 30,000 watt transmitter on Lookout
Mountain and joined the NPR network, the senate
dropped its funding on the grounds that the station no
longer served student interests. tiln other words? says
WVCisk with a smile, uwe were no longer primarily a
rock music station? But the administration wanted to
see KCFR survive, he says, and so picked up where
the student senate left off. Now, both the administra-
tion and the stations board of directors feel the station
can, and must, leave the DU fold, slowly, but for
good. The problem is, says Wycisk, that as long as the
station is partially funded by DU, it is barred by law
from receiving grants from foundations and trusts set
up for that purpose. He credits Chancellor Ross Prit-
chard for making a it fair and enlightened decisionl, on
the station when he came to office three years ago.
uAfter all, if there aren,t people who support this kind
of thing, then it shouldnlt exist? says Wycisk.
As he looks toward the future, Wycisk sees the
stations major problems as large, but not overwhelm-
ing. One of the main problems is public identification.
illf you were to interview a hundred people downtown
right now," he says, ii99 of them would probably not
know that the station even existed." Another problem
is that in America today radio is used mainly as
background. This tends to work against KCFR, which
tries to present programs that require more attention
that the average stationls.
Still, Wycisk defends his stationls format. iiWe
decided to combine classical music and in-depth infor-
mation radio because the two tend to go together," he
says. iiRock music stations tend to do three-minute
news and a few personality spotlights. We do five to six
hours of news every day?
As for the future, KCFR hopes to depend less and
less on federal money and to broaden its base of fun-
ding in the private sector. The station is working on
feeding its transmission of NPRls morning and evening
newscasts to stations on the western slope of Colorado
and to southern towns like Pueblo. In addition, KCFR
and these stations would pool their state reporting
capability, and be able to provide in-depth coverage of
state issues on a comprehensive basis.
Summing up the role of the community station as
opposed to the privately-run station, Wycisk says that
the iimain purpose of the commercial station is to bring
an audience to the advertiser. The main purpose of the
public broadcaster is to bring news, information, and
entertainment to people?

uWhen we came home from the,war,
nobody wanted to talk to us, but now its not
something that can be ignored anymore,
says Jim Large, a 34-year-old Mass Com-
munications major who served in Viet Nam.
Jim signed up for the Marines four
days after graduating from high school in
1966. President Johnsonls version of the
Gulf of Tonkin incident was still believed na-
tionwide, he says, and the country was in a
very pro-intervention mood. Jim went to
Viet Nam in 1967. He spent two years
there, returning in 1969, to undergo more
training and also to help train new recruits.
He was promoted to officer rank, becoming
first lieutenant. While on a training ambush
drill in the States the same year, Jim was hit
in the head with a rifle butt and seriously in-
jured. To this day it is not officially known if
he was attacked on purpose or if it was an
accident. ttNo one raised their hand to own
up to it," he says wryly.
Jim returned to Viet Nam in 1970 for
another year; he felt indispensible, since he
was involved in a large intelligence net. His
job was to go to units under fire and inter-
rogate any prisoners of war who were cap-
tured. Eventually, Jim left the service, and
travelled around the country, in search of
himself. He tried college, but the blow he
had received on his head had left him with
severe headaches caused by brain swelling,
which still occurs two to six times a day. He
dropped out, and over the next seven years
worked as a rodeo hand, a coal miner, a
truck driver, and was a project director for a
construction company in Alaska.
ul always had a desire to write, if not as
an author, as a jouirnalistfl says Jim. ttAnd
having finally convinced the Veterans Ad-
ministration of the seriousness of my condi-
tion, they gave me financial assistance to
help me attend school again."

program, and he is very high in his praise
for the department. Because of his illness

Jim says, tilt was the hardest thing that 7
could happen to a young man. The carnage
and mayhem was overwhelming. After a
while patriotism went to hell -- you wanted
to do a good job because it kept you and
others alive. The South Vietnamese did not
want to go out and get killed if the
Americans were going to do it for them. It
came to a point where we were trying to
force democracy down their throats?

Jim Large is president of the Colorado
chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America,
Inc., which has 10,000 members nation-
wide. The organizations main aims are
three-fold: to educate the public about the
veterans experience, to assist veterans in
lobbying and litigation, and to help veterans
deal with whatever psychological problems
they may be facing.
On the last point, Jim says that after a
long period of seeming total readjustment, a
vet suddenly finds himself withdrawing from
society, unable to sleep, irritable all the
time, experiencing flashbacks and very
depressed. ttWhat's happening to me? helll

the fall of 1981 to assume the post OthCQ- .
Chancellor for Student Affairs, a position which
had been left unfilled for two years. His selection

campus hoping to be given the job. The reason: it was a? a -

admitted. tilt was unusualfl he said in the interv1ew With this
writer, uto find a university in the 1980s when education 18

Dr. Goodale was asked how he accounted for the
very visible personality he has built up so quickly. He replied
by saying he felt he had a ltmandatell from the entire com-
munity, and that he did promote his presence on campus
because he felt it crucial to his job. III want people to know
that therels a new kid in town and hes got a lot to learnfl
he said. Goodale began to stress tllisteningll as being
very important to him in his leadership methodology. It was
a theme he returned to over and over again throughout the
Another theme was tlhonesty? Ill think youlve got to be
doggedly honest when you make a mistake? he said. llA
good example: last fall we put together a student advisory
council, which began to duplicate some of the things that
were going on in the AUSA senate. I got the feedback; it
was a mistake based on ignorance, so we pulled our horns
in and redefined the role, scope and mission of the council.
So, when you make a mistake you admit it up front and
dont try to hide or mask it?
Goodale also said that he wanted to lower the llmysti-
que" of the Chancellorls building, where his office is located.
People should not think of it as an llivory tower? but ap-
preciate and believe that tlwe put on our pants the same way
they do? He also wants to raise the individual pride of each
student. When asked how he would deal with student
apathy, Goodale said he did not believe in the word, that it
has been used as a scapegoat for other problems on the
other four campuses he has worked for, and that all one has
to do is wander around the campus one day and see how
many activities DU students are involved in.
Goodale replied that, instead of labelling everything
under the catch-all word tlapathyfl one should instead realize
that uthere are three separate problems contributing to lack of
student involvement in extra-curricular activities. The first is

With regard to the future, Dr. Goodale was asked about his
role in the decision to increase student fees so drastically at
DU over such a short period. In the fall of 1982, tuition will

consisting of 15 peOple as well as the initial screening com-
mittee to earn a Rhodes Scholarship this year, becoming
the first DU woman ever to receive the award, and the first
DU student to do so since 1975.
The pathway began in October when she submitted her
application. A thousand-word essay was also required, detail-
ing her activities and interests in college as well as her pro-
posal for study at Oxford. The Political SciencerEnglish ma-
jor had plenty to write about in highlighting her college ac-
tivities. Aside from being captain of the varsity womenls
swim team, she was also a member of the Honors program,
was on its advisory council, on the senate and in two commit-
tees within the senate tchairperson of academic affairs and
undergraduate coordinating committeel. She was also a stu-
dent representative to the Board of Trustees tappointed by
Chancellor Pritchardl, was a resident assistant in Halls for
four quarters, a volunteer reader for the blind in the Disabled
Persons Center, a former feature writer for the Clarion, and
had two poems published in Foothills earlier this year. On top
of this, she carried a perfect 4.0 grade average, and she would
graduate from DU in just three years.
Having gotten past the first two steps, Biemesderfer
was invited to her first interview, with the Colorado State
Committee, meeting in Denver December 5. The committee
was composed of six members, five of which were former
Rhodes Scholars. The gathering traditionally begins the
ntght before with a social event which enables the can-
didates to meet each other as well as the judges. That night
Ihecandidates drew numbers to see what order they would
be interviewed in the following day. Biemesderfer drew the
tenth interview spot out of the 11 candidates. After a tense
two-hour wait, the names of the two regional winners were
announced, and Biemesderfer was one of them.
From there, she went to Pasadena, where nine judges
were waiting to talk to 13 regional finalists. After three
hours of deliberation four names were read in alphabetical

John Paul Cannon
John Paul Cannon was a respected, talented member of
the theatre department faculty at DU. An acting professor and
director. Cannon was seen by his co-workers as a ttterrific col-
league" with a ttwonderful imagination. He was at the end of
his second year on DUls staff when in late July of 1981, he
entered the hospital to undergo urgent surgery; John Paul
Cannon died the following day.
Cannon was born in Rhode Island in 1943. He received
his BA at Brown University and his Master of Fine Arts iMFAl
at Carnegie Mellon. He acted professionally under the name of
Michael Cannon. He acted at the Provincetown Playhouse and
Pittsburgh PlayhoLise, the Baltimore Center Stage and directed
at the New York City Edward Albee Playwrights Unit. He
taught at the American Academy of Arts in New York. His ex-
perience included acting on television in The Guiding Light,
The Edge of Night and commercials, and his movie ap-
pearances included The Night they Raided Menskiels and The
Magical Garden of Stanley Sweetheart. In 1978 he received
the Charles Sergel Drama Prize from the University of Chicago
for his play Gone for Good, which was produced by Denverls
Changing Scene Theatre. Before coming to DU he was
Associate Professor and Head of the Acting Department at
Southern Illinois University. He was the author of four full
length plays and a collection of one acts entitled Sleepinq Ar-
rangements. He wrote numerous reviews of professional
theatre productions for the Educational Theatre Journal, and
was also a founding member of the Free Southern Theatre, a
Civil Rights theatre.
He and his wife, Jo Duranceau Cannon, came to DU in
1979, and one year later he was awarded tenure, an unusual
privilege for someone new to a school. Department Head
Lewis Crickard said he fit in almost immediately: llHe was a
real taskmaster in every sense of the word. He was professional
and demanding and fit in well on a liberal arts campus because
he was intelligent and exceptionally well-read. He had a no-
nonsense approach to work.w Students respected him for his
professional attitude and experience.
Word of his death came as a shock to everyone who knew
him. th0 one was prepared for it; it was so suddenfl said
Crickard. Feelings of disbelief numbed the students and staff
who had worked so closely with him. He had just finished
directing Seduced in June.
At DU Cannon directed Lu Arm Hampton from the Texas
Trilogies, Eccentricities of a Nightingale, Three Penny Opera,
Mad Dog Blues and Seduced. He had planned to direct The
Year Boston Won the Pennant, written by his good friend John
Lewis Crickard expressed a deep feeling of loss for his
friend and colleague, whom he said was uon the brink of being
a well-known playwright and director. . . people like John
come along rarely? he said. liWe advertised for his position for
two years and received probably more than 200 applications.
Out of that you find maybe ten percent that are worth con-
sidering, and out of that maybe ten who are qualified. John

and it will be difficult to replace himf'

What, if anything, do students learn
in the classroom? It has been said
that, for each hour of classroom time,
students are likely to learn little more
than two new pieces of information.
And, even the finest teachers cannot
compare with textbooks when it comes
to imparting knowledge in the ways of
facts and concepts. It must be
discouraging to teacher and student
alike to find that an hour spent closely
reading a moderately priced textbook
is more instructive than an hour spent
Assuming the above to be true, what
does happen in the classroom that can
possibly justify the expense and effort
put forth by teachers and students
alike? As the cost of college education
increases while the vocational and
financial advantages of college
declines, the role of higher education
in our society will be continuously
examined and criticized until satisfac-
tory answers to these issues appear. .
Having spent a lot of time in
classrooms both as student and as
teacher, I think I know what it is that
is special about the classroom-learning
or teaching experience. The major
accomplishments are not so much
facts learned or skills mastered,
although occasionally such things do
take place. Nor is the outcome
necessarily likely to prepare students
for specific life styles or vocations. In
fact, the generality of the liberal arts
education can be almost useless in the
short run although, with time and
with a continuously changing world,
the person who has general
knowledge is likely to have an edge in
flexibility and breadth that apparently
permits more satisfaction regardless
of what profession or life style is
Dr. Jay Trowill wrote these words for the 1978 Kynewisbok, accepting his selec-
tion as a Pioneeer for that year.
He died in mid-April 1981 at the age of 43.
Trowill, a psychologist,began teaching at DU in 1972, concentrating his efforts
in the field of physiological psychology. He took a sabbatical in 1978 and returned
the following year, working closely with Open Clinic in initiating the drug education
program in the Denver Public School system.
Trowill was named DUts Most Distinguished Teacher for 1980-81. In a letter to
the Clarion, some of his students and colleagues from Open Clinic and the
Physiological Psychology Laboratory wrote: tttDr. Trowilll went beyond his role as
professor and constantly gave of himself to all, in many supportive and construe-
tive ways. It 15 a privilege and an honor to have known and worked with this great

Y its eXIStean?
After much thought and considerat' '
it seems that the one major impalcotni
have had on students is that Of
motivation - the motivation to lear
new things, examine new perspe:
tives, use onels own lUdgement and
even to pick up the textbook andlread
it. After motivation comes respecttor
onels own abilities as a highly evolved
intelligent observer, analyst and critic
of oneself as well as others and the
world we share.
While the above doesn't sound likea
whole lot, I am left with a feeling of
satisfaction and awe. Satisfaction
because I suspect that motivation and
self-respect will transcend the
classroom and the facts in the
textbook while contributing to a
life-long investment of intellect and
compassion as student and the world
encounter one another. Awe because
that kind of impact gives one hope
that the net result will not be a
maintenance of the status quo.
Rather, a slow but steady impact of
youthful intelligence, energy and
compassion will permeate the world in
a sustained and unyielding fashiont
Maybe only two things are learned in
the classroom afterall. If so, I hope
they are the two qualities I identified
above. Good luck to the class of 78

significance to me.

Jacob Haish was a barbed-wire

ttMoral health is of more conse-
quence than intellectual acuteness in the

to a prospective student in 1908. Buchtel
was trying to convince the young man to
pursue his college education at home in
Denver, rather that going off to a school
in the East. Perhaps it was this powerful
desire to offer the young people of
Denver a worthy place of higher educa-
tion which motivated Buchtel, who
hated fund-raising, to raise one and-a-
half million dollars in gifts to the
university. Under Buchtel, DU embark-

In the early days, the students of each
department or school would select one
person as their Pioneer for the year;
later, as DU grew, that became unfeasi-
ble. The general method of choosing
Pioneers in the last several years has
been for the editor to appoint a commit-
tee, and charge them with making the
selections, based upon, but not limited
by, nominations from members of the
Accordingly, ads were placed in
the Clarion in Jan. 1982, inviting
nominations. Over 50 forms were pick-
ed up from the Student Life office, but
only 14 were turned in by closing time
Man. 25f The six-member committee,
chosen personally by the editor to
hopefully reflect a broad cross-section of
the DU community, was comprised of
four juniors, one faculty and one staff
member. They were Mike Griffith
tchairmant, Brian Kitts, Kathleen Bot-
tagaro, Mary Lee Han, Dr. Roscoe Hill
and Mrs. Claudia Price, respectively.
The committee members each
received photocopies of the nomina-
tions on Monday, Jan. 25 and met on
Wed., Jan. 27. They chose 20 Pioneers
for 1982 - eleven students received in-
dividual awards and three were given a
joint award. In addition, two faculty
members, two staff members, one
alumnus, one trustee, one academic
department and a staff group were
named as Pioneers.

and Ms. Norton, on 11the stu-
dents scholarship ability; par-
ticipation and leadership in
academic and extracurricular
activities; citizenship and ser-
vice to the University of
Denver; and potential for
future achievement? Finally,
to be eligible, students had to
be classified as juniors, seniors
or graduates by the end of
summer quarter 1981.
According to Ms. Nor-
ton, DU,S selections were
made on a points system: each
committee member graded
each nominee on a scale of 1 to

You get 18 credit hours tor 12 semester unitsI for the trip. You
take general education courses, and the interesting thing was that as
we approached a country, we would get lectures about it and its peo-

The ship was very boring at night. All there was to do was
study, or if you didntt feel like it, you could go watch a movie, or go
to the bar, which we called the student union. Drinks were only 60
cents each. As we got nearer a port, we would get excited about it,
which made it even harder to concentrate on our studies.
The first leg of the journey, from Seattle to Japan, took about
two weeks, and was the toughest part of the whole trip. A lot of peo-
ple got sea-sick, and about four left the ship in J apan. They seemed to
have personal problems, and were not ready for the total experience of
the trip. It was a bit of a shock to see so much at one time. It would
have been nice if we could have spent more time in each country - do it
over two quarters - but that would probably be much too expensive!
You got very close to other students on the ship - I feel closer now
to some of them than to people Pve known all my life. There was
nowhere to go to be alone, except in the shower. Some people didnlt
like that very much. There were about three girls to every guy. The at-
mosphere was fairly promiscuous. It wasnlt blatantly encouraged, but
certainly not discouraged. I mean, itls the time of your life, and peo-
ple were making the most of it. Everyone was into expressing
themselves, and it worked out great - most of the time.
Our final port before returning to the US. was Malaga, Spain.
During the 12-day voyage from there to Port Everglades we had
nothing else to do but study for finals.
I learned a lot about myself. I learned a lot about people, not
only from the U.S., but from all over the world. I think I matured in

Coffee is my nectar

offee drinking has coaxed countless weary risers into the ensuing
activities of the day, and held centuries of tired mlntls 1n .focus
far longer than their normal waking hours. Beyond 1ts utilitarian
functions, however, coffee provides simple enjoyment and quiet
style for its most fervent indulger - the student coffee drinker.
Truly, there is no facsimile for that styrofoam coffee cup between the hands as you
brace yourself for the first class of the day, or the last flnal oithequarter. Free of pills
or injections, how else can one acquire that caffeme-msplredzmg 1n the time it takes to

those who can be satisfied by decaffinated substances. My own phase of coffee absten-
tion only led me to similar evils - Mountain Dew, Coke, and the notorious Morning

an aluminum can; I can no longer try to read Doonesbury while fooling with a used tea

. . .The importance of this past
year is that it marked the end of a cer-
tain transition in the Universityls
development, and formed the nexus to
a new set of processes and priorities.
Speaking to performance, it is
enough to say that all the vital signs
--our enrollment, the quality of
students, our fund raising perfor-
mance, research volume, our endow-
ment -- continue in that upward curve
which began three years ago. Our
financial performance is steady,
stronger, and more stable. While
perhaps too much can be made of a
balanced budget, it is nonetheless a
fact of academic life that support flows
towards those who demonstrate the
ability to maintain quality academic
programs, stable enrollment, and
steady financial management. These
we have set in place. . .
. . .When I left you at convocation
last year, we had begun to redefine the
University of Denver for the eighties in
terms of qualitative improvement and
Chancellor Ross Pritchard
delivered his second annual State
of the University address at the
Field house on Wed. Oct. 7,
It was an upbeat speech, in
which the chancellor cited
enrollment, student quality,
fund raising, research volume
and growth in the schools en-
dowment as ttvital signsll which
are continually improving.
Following are excerpts from
academic distinction. Part and parcel
of that announced objective was the
determination to develop a clear, sim-
ple, manageable operating plan for a
precise span of time as the principal
management tool of the University. . .
Our objectives emerge from a sim-
ple profile of the University and an in-
ventory of our strengths and
weaknesses. Within this profile, we
place emphasis upon constraint in
quantitative growth and improvement
in quality. To this end, we have iden-
tified in our initial set of priorities nine
objectives. Two address specific,
measurable improvements in student
quality and in student life. F our objec-
tives address important areas in our
academic program -- improvement of
the faculty environment, reorganiza-
tion of research, expansion of non-
traditional education, and most com-
prehensively, a matrix for evaluating
each of our academic programs. Three
objectives take aim at improving our
financial forecasting and management;
the reorganization of our plannlng,
budgeting; and decision-making PTO'
cesses; and in presenting the inessage
of the University more effectwely in
order to broaden our appeal atld Sill;
port. The substance of these objectklvof
is set forth simply in aframewor and

Evaluation Task Force --which are now
being developed to provide expanded
participation in budgeting, in financial
management, and in program develop-
ment. Some of these groups will be
temporary in the sense that they will be
formed to attack a problem, make
recommendations and complete their
work. Others will remain on a con-
tinuous basis, monitoring and reshap-
ing our efforts.
Recent experience has
demonstrated that this approach had
its advantages. During the initial
discussions of a new budget process,
the 15 member Colo. Springs planning
group discussed the annual 5070

to form. a reallocation pool for new
priorities. Under certain cir-

tact those who by law are responsible

with those who are charged with its
academic and administrative respon-
sibilities. . .
As a final comment on the three-
year plan, a summary of ttwhat it is
not: ID The plan is not, nor will it be in
any given time frame, a comprehensive
list of all that needs to be done for the
University. Our ability to implement
the plan is directly related to our ability
to generate the resources essential to
action. We believe we have addressed
the most important ttfirst line" prob-
lems. We will proceed one year at a
time, identifying new problems as we
resolve others. While we are painfully
aware of unmet needs, we intend to
schedule no more than we can ac-
complish in any set period.
tn The plan and its central instru-
ment -- the Chancelloris Council -- is
not a general assembly for representa-
tional discussion. It is a management
tool and decision-making instrument.
However, the processes related to it are
designed to bring forward the product
of representational discussions as they
develop throughout the year, or upon
Oi The plan is not rigid and ir-
revocable. We will respond to shifts
and changes, either to blunt a threat or
to take advantage of an opportunity.
At the same time, we are committed to
its processes and we will be held ac-
countable through the monitoring pro-
cess for those objectives that have been
From both the substance and the
process of our plan, as well as some of
the discussions which have taken place
in so many areas, we are beginning to
see the shape of new priorities. I men-
tion but a few. tDThere is little ques-
tion that a high technology expansion
will sweep across the front range bet-
ween Fort Collins and Albuquerque.
Computerization and the development
of the informational sciences will un-
doubtedly have a tremendous impact
upon program development in higher
education. We have begun to see new
developments in the College .of
Business Administration as it in-
troduces computerization across 1ts
curriculum. New engineering programs
have been proposed and approved by
the faculty of the College of Arts and
Sciences. A new concept for the
teaching of economics is being con-
sidered. A reorganization of the Col-
lege of Librarianship is being studied.
All of these, as well as they should be,
are initiatives which are developing at
faculty and departmental levels and be-
ing brought forward for fmal ap-
proval. Oi A second priority will be the
further implementation of im-
provements in student development.
Last year, we felt that we could move
beyond the first priority of faculty
salaries to the urgent need to improve
student development staff and pro-
grams. We conducted an extensive self-
study of our program, utilizing both
outside consultants and University
students, staff, and those faculty who,
over the years, have been most closely
associated with student life activities.
We then conducted a national search
and were able to attract outstanding
candidates for the job. We have
selected a new Vice Chancellor, and he
has already set in motion at a rapid rate
the reorganization of the student life
staff and its programs. Oi We will, of
course, have to set a priority on dealing
with the dislocation and jeopardies
that develop on the federal scene.
While we have felt a pinch in our cur-
rent September enrollment, I believe a
more severe blow will fall upon higher
education a year hence. Fortunately,
we have spent much of the past three
years redirecting our efforts to private
sector support. While we certainly will
have to absorb the negative impact of
federal action, both our geography and
the pattern of our most recent efforts
will moderate the impact of the
withdrawal of federal support. . .
Let me be quick to add that even
as I share with you the new
developments, I am acutely aware that
the basic functions of our profession
--teaching, learning, research -- go on,
day after day, while some of us have
been working elsewhere. I know that
Dick Brandenburg has been working
with his faculty, reorganizing the Col-
lege of Business Administration; that
Bob Pruitt goes on year upon year
educating his accountants who now
achieve the highest success rate of any
Colorado university students in their
qualifying exams. I know that a brand
new economist of national reputation
has arrived and begins to build and
reshape a department. I know that five

Lowell Thomas -
here are few people who may ever embody
the Pioneer spirit the way Lowell Thomas
did. An adventurer, Thomas travelled the
world in search of knowledge, a search he
credits his father with forming in a young Lowell.
Thomas had to know. As a young boy,Thomas
decided that he had places to go, people to meet
and chances to take. He took the chances and
didnft stop taking them until he died. And. by the
time he died in the Fall of 1981, Lowell Thomas
had gained the respect and admiration of the entire
Born in the rustic frontier of Ohio in 1892, Thomas mov-
ed to Cripple Creek, Colorado at the age of 6. And it was in
this wild mining town that Thomas would stay, living, learn-
ing and raising hell, at least until he was able to move on.
When he did move on, it was to the University of Nor-
thern Indiana at Valparaiso. By this time, according to
Thomas, America was losing its frontier charm. In his
autobiography, Good Evening Everybody, Thomas
reminisces about a time when circuses stopped in small
American towns and trains belched sparks and smoke into a
sweltering summer night. Thomas speaks of husking bees, the
Spanish-American war, and the first gasoline-powered
automobile and of a time when little boys wore skirts.
. Thomas returned to Colorado in 1911 with a Bachelor of
Selence and a Master of Arts degree - he was 19 years old. He
returned to a job as the editor of the Victor News, a job which
pald $135 per month and which gave him his first break in the
world of journalism, a world which he revolutionized.
In 1912, Thomas moved to Denver with intentions of
once agaln becoming a student. He enrolled in graduate
then Chancellor Buchtel told Thomas that perhaps, since he
had obtalned his first two degrees at such a young age, he
mlght con51der taking senior courses in addition to graduate
study. Thomas took Buchtelis advice and at the end of the
gag, Thomas had a second bachelors degree and another
Thomas writes that as of his graduation, he had no idea
what he wanted to do. He had met Fran Ryan, a DU student,
but It would be years before they married. Instead, he rode
off to the ranches of Southern Colorado and then to law
school in Chicago.

While in the Middle East, Thomas met a quiet, blue-eyed
Arab, a man whose story Thomas would tell and thrill the
world with - Lawrence, King of Arabia. Thomas also told the
stories of revolutionary Germany. Thomas witnessed the final
moments of the lives of revolutionaries Karl Liebknecht and
He returned to the United States to a nation he no longer
recognized. Automobiles filled the streets and movie theatres
were numerous. His stay in America was short, however, and
soon he was traveling again, this time to the far East and into
the forbidden territory that is today Afghanistan.
Thomasl experiences gave him the necessary fuel to fire a
career in the building of the budding radio industry and in
September 1930, he broadcast the first of what would be
thousands of nightly newscasts. Opening the show with his
trademark llGood evening everybody? Thomas would
report on the rise of the 11German Mussolinill - Adolf Hitler
-and then close his show with the familiar 11So long until
He quickly became the nationls No. 1 radio personality
with his quick wit, natural ability and charm. And the
nationls eyes were riveted to an on-going series of games of
softball between Thomasl team and the team coached by
President Franklin Roosevelt. But in 1941, the games ended
and Thomas received the following message: uDear Lowell, I
am afraid Hitler has ended our ball games for the duration. . .
As ever yours, F.D.R.,l It was a signal that Americals Golden
Age had ended.
Again, Thomas covered the war. It was a long war for
Thomas but for many Americans, his reports were the only
ones that mattered. He interviewed hundreds of personalities,
among them Generalissimo Chiang Klai Shek,and Amerlca
Thomas devoted the rest of his life to the pursuit of
knowledge and adventure. He traveled to see the Dalal Lama
and to see the cannibals of New Guinea. He made the first
radio broadcast from a mountaintop and from a plane.
In the second volume of his autobiography, So Long U"-
til Tomorrow, Thomas marvels at what he has experienced.
Born in 1892, he saw the coming of the automobile and elec-
tricity. He saw the atomic bomb and the first lunanlandmg.
More importantly, he wondered at these accomplishments
and became part of them instead of a casual observer. And
until his death in the fall of 1981, he never stopped learning
and in the truest sense of the word, he never stopped living.
In recognition of his commItment to and the embo 1-
ment of a true Pioneer spirit, this edition of the Kynewisbok
is dedicated to the memory of Lowell Thomas.

COLORADO WOMENlS COLLEGE
Fall of an
hen the demise of Colorado Womenls College was
announced in mid-November 1981, scarcely a whimper
of protest was heard. T here was no outcry from students
and graduates, no letters to the editor no last ditch cam-
paigns to save what remains of a 93-year-old Denver institution.
The local media didn,t think much of the story either, handling the death
of a college as an ordinary event, something akin to the closing of a funky old
dime store that had outlived its usefulness. Even the editorial writers and col-
umnists were unmoved, preferring instead to analyze the popcorn concession
policies of a certain suburban movie house.
Apparently, the community is quite willing to let
CWC die a peaceful death, and perhaps itls better that
way. As one graduate of the 1968 class summed it up:
mltls not a viable institution anymore, so I canlt fight for
it. Pm not sure itls worth saving."
It wasnlt always that way. Only 11 months ago, when
college officials announced a drastic reorganization
scheme that gutted the faculty and closed many campus
facilities, the outcry from students and alumnae was
A series of emotional meetings was held, resulting in a
lawsuit by the students seeking to block the reorganization.
A contingent of 50 students marched on the administration
building, demanding that their college be saved and its
president sacked. By Berkeley standards, the protest was
puny. But for tiny CWC, catering exclusively to women at
its campus at East Monview Avenue and Quebec Street,
the spectacle of student activism seemed almost extraor-
For much of its history, the institution was considered
a glossed-over finishing scnool, a place where a proper
young lady might learn the fine points of handling a fish
fork, and little else. Handling a picket sign wasnlt part of
The image of CWC as a finishing school, whether
deserved or not, had long disappeared by the 19603, when
the student body swelled to more than a thousand and the
college enjoyed a brief but idyllic heyday. Academic pro-
grams had grown strong, enabling students to choose a
year of study at universities in Madrid, Geneva and
Venice. Distinguished professors took up residence, en-
trance requirements were toughened, and millions of
dollars were committed for construction of new dor-
mitories, classrooms and a shimmering fine arts center.
But prosperity at CWC was fleeting. By the time
students marched on their presidentls office in January,
1981, the college had crash landed in a sea of financial
woes that prompted the firing of 25 of the colleges 35 full-
time professors. Treat Hall, the architectural and historical
centerpiece of the college, was boarded up to save on fuel
bills. The position of the college dean was eliminated, and
the campus swimming pool was drained. Desperate for
operating capital, the trustees tried in vain to sell off some
of the campus real estate.
When CWC began its autumn term last September,
officials were cautiously calling the reorganization a suc-
cess. But simple arithmetic would appear to prove other-
wise. CWC had saved the salaries of about 25 professors,
but in turn had lost the tuition of about 200 students whO
elected to go elsewhere for their education. In terms of
dollars, it was a lousy deal. . .
With the college officially in default on a $3.7 milhon
loan, it came as small surprise in November 1981. that
CWC would turn over its entire assets to the Universny of
Denver, which in turn would assume CWC,s total debt ?f
about $8.2 million. Although DU has indicatedlt W111

But Buellis largesse came with a few strings attached.
First, he required that CWC change its name to Temple
Buell College. Secondly, he wanted his burial site, and that
of his wife, to be on the campus. The third string, which
ultimately became a noose around the colleges neck, was
that none of the tigif it would become available until after
Despite the stipulations, the board of trustees ac-
cepted the offer, and, almost immediately, contributions
slowed to a trickle. Since details of the arrangement
werenit made public, other than that CWC had inherited
$25 million and changed its name, former supporters
assumed the college was financially secure. Other
graduates were miffed by the change of names, and, feel-
ing disenfranchised, cut off the school from further dona-
tions. CWC struggled under the name of Temple Buell for
four years before the deal was nixed, having never received
a penny from Buell, who, for his part, insists to this day
that he was taken for a ride by the college trustees. The
trustees wonder if it wasn,t the other way around.
CWC reverted to the slightly different name of Col-

about the schoolts financial health weren,t being
answered. When Manning moved to introduce more
technical courses into the curriculum, those in the liberal
arts department, quite predictably, charged that she was
destroying the educational traditions of the college. By last
year? Manning was almost constantly at war with large
portlons of the faculty. Twice, she was the target of re-
sounding votes of Itno confidence. . P
. . .Yet Manning fended off criticism with her usual
aplomb, and boldly asserted that CWC was embarking on
a journey that would make it tta jewel in the Rocky Moun-
tain West that so many people love? She termed the firing
of the 25 professors itdrastic and regrettable? and then, in
the same breath, called it tiexciting?

quirements of running this collegefi she declared at the
time. iiWe are uniquely positioned for the future?
As late as last September, Manning continued her in-
sistence that all was peachy at CWC. Yet the loss of 200
students over the summer could hardly have escaped the
notice of the collegeis creditors, and at the same time the
schoolis president was making her rosy proclamations,
CWC trustees were eyeball to eyeball with bankruptcy.
When CWC announced on Nov. 21 that it would be
absorbed by Denver University, few of those familiar with
the situation were surprised. Manning resigned shortly
thereafter, although she remained on the payroll as Presi-
. . .For DU, the deal appeared to be a handsome one.
As an educational institution, CWC has been valued at
some $30 million, meaning that DU will assume the assets
for about 25 cents on the dollar. But DU has experienced
its own financial problems in the last six years, most
recently in September when enrollment fell 200 students
below projections, prompting across-the-board budget
cuts for most departments.
How DU will handle CWC,s $8.2 million in debts is
unclear, and officials at Columbia Savings and Loan,
CWCts largest creditor, refused to talk to a reporter about
what arrangements they might consider.
The merger faces final approval by the DU trustees in
January, but since they will inherit CWC with virtually no
strings attached, approval seems a certainty. For all prac-
tical purposes, CWC will become a memory.
As CWC graduate Jane Morris put it, "It would be
nice if somehow the name would survive, but it wouldnlt
mean all that much.
ttThere is a certain woman who needs a womanls
education. I needed it. I was shy and pretty withdrawn
when I got out of high school, but at CWC I was elected
president of my dorm and I even ran for student body
president when I was a senior. That,s something that never
would have happened to me at a big college like CU.
itltll always have my memories and Iill always be
grateful for what I got out of it. Pm just sorry that CWS

11 Friday, Jan. 8, 1982, the Uni-
versity of Denverls board of
trustees voted unanimously to
take over Colorado Women,s
College. The announcement followed some
months of formal negotiation with the beleagured
womenls institution, located in northeast Denver,
about ten miles from DU,s University Park cam-
pus. tsee p. 110 for background informationl.
Lucien Wulsin, the DU board,s new president, in
announcing the vote, said that the Lamont
School of Music and very possibly the DU Law
School would be moved to the CWC campus,
and plans would be laid to expand the Weekend
College program started at CWC for non-
traditional students. The president, and indeed all
top DU administrators were, however, non-
specific about what kind of women-only pro-
grams might or might not be set up as part of the
As long as DU could afford to invest the money and at
least service the massive CWC debt of some seven or eight
million dollars it inherited with the purchase, as well as do
the necessary refurbishments urgently required on some of
the CWC buildings, the takeover seemed like a real estate
coup, which probably left many a real estate investor drooling
with envy. For, according to one estimate, DU paid only
about a quarter of the actual dollar value of the property for
But taking over another academic institution, especially
one with nearly a hundred years of history, involves much
more than simply acquiring real estate deeds of ownership.
How did the students, faculty and staff of CWC feel about
this final turn of events? What was DU doing to assimilate
them with dignity into their new world? To gain insight, I
paid a visit to the CWC campus in mid-January 1982 to in-
terview some of the students there.
CWCls campus, even on a cold winters day, exudes a
cosy atmosphere. For although there were no students
walking between classes tonly about 50 full-time students
and 10 or 15 faculty members were still on campusl, the
place had a warmth and feeling of homeliness about it.
You could se how people could perhaps fall in love with a
place like this.
Nina Lutjens, a former DU grad student who, for the
past two years had been CWCs director of student
development, introduced me to three intelligent and ar-
ticulate young women. They were Lisa Lamphere, a

ing the young women how they felt about the end of
CWCls independence and the takeover by DU:

Melynda: That Saturday night in mid-November last year
when Ross Pritchard came to talk to us, there were a lot of
upset people around here. It was the end of our home. But
WC have found that Pritchardls attitude toward us and our
heritage has helped a lot. Our Dr. Kindelsperger has been
superb as a liason between the two campuses.
Nina: This seems to have been one of the smoothest transi-
tions in higher ed merger history.
Cheryl: Another good thing was that we were given the op-
portunity to finish this year under our quarter system. By
giving us as individuals the choice of continuing here or
merging right away, a lot of bitterness has been averted.

ituated on a 50-acre campus southwest of the
intersection of East Montview Blvd. and Quebec
Street, the Colorado Womenls College looks much
more like a college than does the University of
Denver, its new-owner-to-be.
Lets take a tour.
Two of the most dominant buildings on campus - the
oldest and one of the newest - stand sentinel on the east and
west ends of the quad.
At the east end looms Treat Hall, the oldest building on
campus. Built in two phases, the first of which was completed
in 1909, Treat Hall is a gothic monstrosity containing some
60,000 square feet of offices and classrooms. Treat Hall was
boarded up recently to save on energy costs and likely will re-
quire extensive remodeling.
At the west end of the quad is Whatley Chapel and its
striking bell carillion. Completed in 1962, the chapel is
decorated throughout with stained-glass portraits of famous
religious and academic figures.
The glass was the work of Gabriel Loire of Chartres,
France, an internationally recognized artist in stained glass
who was able to recreate the tone and depth of the stained
glass done by Medieval craftsmen.
The Chapel consists of a nave and choir loft, which seat
800, a meditation chapel, a lounge area, four classrooms and
seven offices. In addition, there is an outdoor amphitheatre
adjoining the Chapel.
But perhaps the most spectacular building on the CWC
campus is the W. Dale and W. Ida Houston Fine Arts Center
located across Montview Blvd. from the rest of the campus:
The Houston Center is equipped with
auditoria - the Conklin Theatre which seats 700 and is fixed
with a hydraulic proscenium which can either extend the stage
or lower into an orchestra pit, and the Foote Music Hall
which seats 300 and can accomodate a 75-piece ,
Downstairs is the dance studio, 3 40 x 50 fo
floor built on springs to aid the dancers, and a
in-the-round is used by experimental drama tro
In addition, the Houston Center includes a

which also includes on its inventory two Neupert harp-
sichords, and two handcrafted German organs tone of which
can be moved on its platform onto the Foote Music Hall
The Houston Fine Arts Center was completed in 1968,
and includes in its 80,000 square feet numerous practice
studios and faculty offices.
The campus library, built in 1963, faces the quad from
the south end, and contains some 150,000 volumes. Most
notably, it includes four classrooms and a computer centet.
Mason Hall completes the quad on the north end. BUIII

n April 1981, hockey coach
Marshall Johnston suddenly
resigned, sending shock
waves through the DU com-
munity. Johnston had accepted an of-
fer to work for the NHL Colorado
Rockies, Denvefs pro hockey team.
uI have spent 2573 of my life at
this school, and I want to take this op-
portunity thank the University of
Denver for the enrichment it provided
my life? wrote Johnston in his letter
of resignation. An alum of DU who
worked his way through college on a
hockey scholarship, Johnston went on
to participate in the 1964 and 1968
Olympics after graduating in 1963. He
also played professionally with the
Minnesota North Stars, the Cleveland
Barons, and the California Golden
Seals, returning to DU in 1975 as
assistant coach. He became head
coach in 1977. His record over the
four years he served in the top hockey
position stands at 89 wins, 63 losses
and 7 draws. Johnston led the varsity
hockey team to victory in the WCHA
championship in 1977-78, for which
he was named Coach of the Year.
Chosen to replace Johnston as
head coach was Ralph Backstrom,
who had worked as Johnston,s assis-
tant from 1977 to 1980. Backstrom,s
career includes fifteen years spent in
the NHL, and four in the World
Hockey association, including more
than a dozen seasons with the Mon-
treal Canadiens. He had left DU in
1980 to join the NHL Los Angeles
Kings as assistant coach

Fall Intramural Review
ine intramural events highlighted the fall 1981 season.
Football, as usual, got the most attention. In menls IIAI, division, it
was the P83 team composed of varsity baseball members that
outlasted the Wolverburgs' team for top honors. In division IIBXI the
Outlaws, a team composed of DU Law School members took the title over
Wat-r-wee Who-r-wee squad. In womenls football, The Other Side of Bad
News defeated the Tight Ends for the championship.
In a busy quarter, there was also men,s soccer, menls and womenls

badminton lboth singles and doublesl, and the llturkey trotf,
In tennis and racquetball, there were llAlI and IIBII divisions for men
and also a women,s division. There was also a menls and womenIs golf
tournament featuring two-person teams with best ball counting.
Once again the campus recreation enjoyed another record breaking
year for participation. Intramurals provides students an outlet for athletic
competition yet retaining the element of fun.

On the forward line, Mike

The 1981 DU Lacrosse ?eam hid
an up-and-down season. Losmg their
first three gameS, DU came back to
salvage a 4-6 record. Under the
guidance of coach Bruce Rifkm the
club had exciting victories aswell as
disappomtlng defeats. The highlight of
the season came in a 12'9 heart-
stopping victory over the .UniverSIty. of
Northern Colorado. In this game Bill
EigO scored five goals and three
assistS, Tyler Hall three goals and two
assistS, and Dave Zabronsky five
assists. During the fourth quarter, due
to some needless penalties, the
defense was put to the test. It
responded by handling everything
UNC threw at them. Along the way,
junior co-captain Ed Blumenthal made
a couple superlative saves. After this
game DU went on to win their next
two encounters but then closed out
the season with a loss to Colorado
College and an overtime loss to the
Denver Stickers. uWe were very close

Having followed Closely the fortunes of DUls
athletes over the past year, our sportswriter now
nominates. those he considers most deserving of
HALL OF F AME
HOCKEY: When looking for Hall of Fame nominations for the 1981-82 hockey
season, the only choices available are the squad,s two top scorers. Ed Beers led
the team in goal scoring for the past three seasons, and fellow forward Don
Fraser led the nation in scoring at this writing and had sparked the Pioneer of-
fense, turning it into one of the most potent in the nation.
BASKETBALL: Center Dwayne Russell for his shot blocking abilities, reboun-
ding skills, offensive capabilities, and leadership.
GYMNASTICS: Diana Perkins, an AlLAmerican who returned from severe knee
surgery to once again compete for the Pioneer Gymnastics squad. Her desire to
return from the injury and her perseverance makes Perkins a must when men-
tioning courageous DU student athletes.
F IELD HOCKEY: Most definitely Barbara Mangan. For my reasons, please turn
to the article on Mangan in the ttPeoplelt section tpage 126T.
WOMEN,S SWIMMING: Sue Biemesderfer deserves the nod here. Despite swim-
ming for a Division 111 school, Sue was undefeated in meets featuring area
squads, even though they swim at a higher level of competition. More on
Biemesderfer in ttPeoplell tpage 1251.
MENlS SWIMMING: While there are six seniors on this yearls squad, Alan
Voisard gets our vote for Hall of Fame. The Denver native was named NAIA
All-American last year and is among the best swimmers on the DU squad.
BASEBALL: Senior Dave Black set school records with 22 homeruns and 71
RBIls, as well as batting a robust .405. The fleet leftfielder is an excellent all-
around athlete, competing in football and basketball while at Thomas Jefferson
High School in Denver and at DUls intramural events.
SOCCER: Mustapha tthe magicianl Zidane. Moose has the ability to turn a short
dribble into an adventure. With tremendous Vision and desire, this unselfish
playmaker consistently sets his teammates up for open shots.
The above selections were made from seniors only.
While one could argue that athletes in the five remaining intercollegiate .
sports were also deserving of Hall of Fame consideration, up to press time tmid-
Jan. 1982l, many of their seasons had not yet gotten underway, and they had to
be omitted. .
The Hall of Fame should also recognize the people behind the scenes.
Though out of the limelight, the sports programs at DU could not continue
without the efforts of the coaches, administrators, equipment peoplea physmal
plant people, the sports information office, the ticket office, the rnedia covering
the teams, concessionaires, and Mitz Kurth and his crew based in the Arena.

Support our Athlete
By Mitch Roberts
verall, the DU athletic department en-
joyed another successful year. Midway
through the winter sports slate, it ap-
peared all teams would have winning
records for the 1981-82 season.
Over the years, DU has consistently placed five of its
thirteen teams in the top ten of their respective divisions.
Field hockey has finished ninth, fourth, and sixth in its
three appearances in the national championship tourna-
ment; menls swimming has had fifth, fifth, third, and se-
cond the past four years tnot including the 1981-82 seasonl;
and woments gymnastics has enjoyed three successive se-
cond place finishes tnot including this seasonls resultsl.
Hockey, basketball, baseball and tennis also have qualified
for' national championship playoffs.
The performances on the playing field have been
outstanding by all DU athletes, but so have their academic
pursuits. Sue Biemesderfer t4.0l won a Rhodes Scholarship,
and nine members of the hockey team were selected to the
WCHA All-Academic team led by senior Scott Robinson
8.9 l. The academic accomplishments donlt stop with
isolated athletes or sports: every sport has a team com-
posite grade point average of 2.5 or above, with most team
GPAls considerably above that mark.
About the only dismaying aspect of the sports pro-
grams at DU is the chronic lack of student support. Despite
outstanding teams, and individual performances, the stu-
dent body, faculty, and staff would rather sit around dorm
rooms or apartments than head out to support their friends
on the particular teams.
While the prices for athletic events are high t$1.50y,
where else can someone see two to three hours of quality
entertainment for such a price? A six-pack cost
that amount. So does a pizza or a movie.
Apathy prevails through all campus events. Student
government gets Virtually no support outside its represen-
tatives, the theatre department lives off the community's
support and several faculty members, and the athletic
department plays its events before the tlhome-morgue ad- a

circumstances are they to make any noise that may be
misinterpreted as cheering.
Most schools look to students to make noise, get the
spirit going, to turn the game into a game -- a fun event "
than a stuffy black-tie dinner. In many schools, the
students literally hang from the rafters yelling encourage-
ment to squad members. At DU events, you wonderifthe.
students are aware of which team is the Pioneers. After
you need to know the school colors, to identify DU. e
The fact remains that athletic teams flourish in situa- ,
tions where they receive support. DU has provided athletic.
teams competitive within their divisions. Hockey compete?

This oft-the-wall play, with characters
such as Marlene Dietrich, Mae West,

that these simple, seemingly trite

which wealthy JoetDan Koppert sits

Directed by Donna Breed, the
show opened the 1981 fall season. A

to take the audience a step closer to
full enjoyment of the cast and script.
In the end, each question is answered
by one mants final act of humanity.

A joint effort of DUs theatre and
music departments, Follies by James
Goldman and Stephen Sondheim was
produced after much rehearsal and
hard work. But after all the sweat and
effort, the musical fanfare turned out
to be of a lesser quality than DU is ac-

Director Ronald Worstell and
Choreographer Merideth Taylor,

The play centers around an old
theatre where its old-time dancers
gather for a reunion before the theatre
is torn down. Two couples, Sally and
Buddy Plummer and Phyllis and Ben
Stone are the principle characters who
reunite and try to relive their dancing
days. Some of the more difficult
scenes were not too credible due to
the lack of acting, singing or dancing
experience in some of the cast
Some extremely well-staged
scenes had bits of excellent
choreography, but for some reason a
few of the dancers were not well-
synchronized and thus the scenes did
not go as well as they could have.
The costumes for Follies, design-
ed by David McCarl, were spectacular,
bright and glittery. And the ghosts of
days gone by were dressed so that
they could be spotted among the
present-day people. This was helpful,
because these ghosts were staged so
that if they had not been dressed in
grey or the dancing costumes of their
day, they would not have been
distinguished from the present-day
folk, because their actions often took
them face-to-face with the presentsday
people. Even so, they confused au-

The Year Boston Won the Pen-
nant was produced by the DU Theatre
Department during Winter quarter,
following a series of plays of which most
contained notes of obscurity and absurdi-
ty. Boston fit in quite well. Written by
John Ford Noonan and directed by Bon-
nie J. Eckard, the play tas far as anyone
could telD concerns a famous Red Sox
pitcher who has lost his arm and does
not tell anyone how. He is also followed
around by someone in a trenchcoat, has
visions of being a great pitcher again and
never stays in one place more than five
minutes. From here the play becomes
confusing. David Quinn played Marcus,
the once-great pitcher, with a great deal
of talent and insight; indeed, one could
see he had worked very hard on
understanding this confusing character.
Much the same can be said for most of
the actors, who held up admirably within
the framework of such a confusing script.

for most audience members, except to
confuse and exasperate with the midnight

at Red Sox stadium. It was only after, of

different from people in other countries? Because of
these illusions, the US. has become timid in its foreign
policies. itThe world is a very bad neighborhood - at
three olclock in the morningf, he continued. llAnd
around the world the US. is perceived more like a lit-
tle old lady than a defensive tackle for the San Fran-
cisco 49ers.'l Honing in on his central theme, that the
US. is way behind in military preparedness, Liddy said
it is ttabsolute nonsensell for anyone to say America
has rough military parity with the Soviet Union. ltWe
have 17 divisions in our armyfl he said, it and six of
the ten stateside are rated unfit for combat." Citing
statistic after statistic to back up his argument, Liddy
summarized the Soviet build-up of arms by saying,
tltheylre not doing all of that to protect the whales from
the Greenpeace Foundationlll
To make matters worse, the West was aiding the
Soviets in their push for military supremacy by selling
them the sophisticated technology they havent been
able to develop themselves, especially computer
systems. Finally, American intelligence is hamstrung in
its efforts to monitor the Soviets both here and abroad
by too much legislation, especially the Freedom of ln-
formation Act rules regarding intelligence sources.
Americals allies used to share their secrets with the
US, but with so much of it turning up in the
American media, they are now leaving the US. out in
Turning to his role in the Watergate scandal, Liddy
noted that most of todayls college students were ten
years old when the affair was taking place, and
therefore could not be expected to recall events as
vividly as older persons. When he was Hinitiated in in-
telligence? he said, it was customary for the in-
telligence agencies of the superpowers to regularly go
through each others files and bug each others offices
and embassies. Not liking what he saw happening in
the 605, Liddy left the FBI and tried to enter politics,
losing his battle for a congressional seat. But he had
made some connections, and soon went to work in
Washington. It was just then that Daniel Ellsberg releas-
ed the top-secret Vietnam report, subsequently called
the Pentagon Papers, to the New York Times. Then
the Soviet embassy got hold of them. liWe had to find
out if Ellsberg had done the second thing lgiving the
report to the Sovietslf, he said, in explanation of his
reasons for breaking into the office of Ellsbergls
psychiatrist. When they didnt find anything there that
would incriminate Ellsberg. Liddy says he recommend-

He was also denied permission to assassinate col-
umnist Jack Anderson, who, in his opinion, had com-
mitted virtual treason by publishing information which
the CIA felt had endangered the life of one Of their
Moscow agents. During the course of the evening lei

Khadafy, the Libyan dictator, and ex-ClA agent-
turned-exposer Philip Agee. He had also been quite

So Said Frederic Storaska
Feb. 16 at Buchtel Chapel in
his talk, ilHow to Say No to a Rapist
and Survive? Storaska's theory is bas-
ed on the fact that the rapist must
dehumanize the victim before he can
rape her. If the potential victim can
react toward the rapist as a human
and defuse the violence, Storaska feels
she has a good chance of not being
Storaskals lectures are usually
very controversial and Tuesday night
was no exception. Before the lecture,
members of the Peoples Organization
for Women were outside distributing
flyers on the ltmythsl, that Storaska
preaches. However, many of the
i,mythsll that the POW advocates as
Storaskals were absent from his lec-
ture. In fact, he promoted more of the
POWls facts than his own itmythsfl
Storaska started his career of
working against rape in 1964, when
one night he came upon an 11-year-
old girl being gang-raped in a park.
He broke up the rape and carried the
girl home to her parents. The reaction
of the girls father was, iiYou should
have let her die. What good is she to
anyone now? She cant even wear
white when walking down the aisleYl
Publicized rape prevention tactics
or lectures were scarce in 1964.
Storaska, spurred by the reaction of
the little girls father, set out to
uchange the worldf, He wrote a book,
made a movie and presently lectures
across the United States.
Rape is not a sexual act but a
hostile act of violence, said
Storaska. The rapist has an intense
feeling of diffidence towards a woman
and he translates this feeling onto his
victim. Rape is a hate type of motion
which Storaska feels is not the end but
a means to the end of this personls
feeling of diffidence.
The rapist is emotionally
disturbed. He seems normal but is
unable to adjust to high anxiety situa-
ilRapists donlt rape human be-
ings, they rape surrogates? he said.
By dehumanizing his victim, a rapist
can treat her as a substitute; a way to
get rid of his anger and violence.
Storaska said that before ever get-
ting into a potential rape situation,
women should mentally decide what
they can or cannot do. The womanls
best weapon over her aggressor is her
mind, he feels.
Storaska related several cases
where women used his methods to get
out of potential rape sitiations. One
woman told her aggressor that she
was three months pregnant. She pro-
ceeded to tell him that she had been
raped by her stepfather when she was
12 and had to have an abortion. She
didnt want to lose this baby so she
asked if she could lie on her side if he
was going to have sex with her.
Storaska said the rapistls reaction was
one of total sympathy for the woman.
He admonished her for walking in the
park alone and let her go. Another
woman told her aggressor that she
was menstruating and would it be
possible for her to clean up and meet
him in an hour. He came back for her
and was apprehended by the police,
whom she had called in the mean-
For the woman who knows her
rapist, Storaska said to ttdo something
wieird,n such as try to turn him off sex-
ually. One woman reportedly urinated
all over her boyfriend when he tried to
Rape is the most rapidly growing
crime in the United States. Surprising-
ly, Buchtel Chapel was three-fourths
empty for Storaskals lecture.

Standing-Room-Only audiences royally. m
Produced during the last two weeks of :1

of poorly-accepted shows.
A full chorus of Lamont Music
Students and Theatre actors had the au-
diences practically rolling with laughter

The Synopsis reads: tlAfter a fancy-
dress ball for which Dr. Falke was dress-
ed as a bat, he was left asleep by his
friend Eisenstein on a public bench to be
awakened at broad daylight by a jeering
crowd. Now Dr. Falke plots revenge. He
takes Eisenstein -- who should have
reported to jail for a minor offense -- to a
ball given by Prince Orlovsky. There the
unsuspecting victim meets his maid and
his masked wife, Rosalinda, as well as
the prison warden, who had in the
meantime arrested a man he believed to
be Eisenstein, as he had found him din-
ing cosily with Rosalinda. . . The com-
plications come to a climax when all
gather at the jail after the party breaks up
early in the morning. There Dr. Falke
discloses to the astonished Eisenstein that
all the nights harassaments had merely
been the bats revenge.w
Although some of the singers had a
bit of trouble acting and vice-versa, the
scenes were so well-executed and the
singing and orchestra were for the most
part so powerful that the minor problems
were hardly any trouble for the au-
diences. The beautiful colorful sets for
each of the three acts were enhanced by
elegant costumes, rented from Malabar,
Limited, in Toronto.

The Latter-day Saint Student
Association on campus is an active
organization made up of diverse per-
sonalities, but unified through com-
mon religious beliefs. Each member
of the association has or is developing
a personal testimony of the gospel of
Jesus Christ. Institute of Religion
courses, held in Margery Reed Hall,
give the Latter-day Saint students at
DU a chance to get to know each
other and learn more about the
Church and the gospel.
Institute courses this year include
History of the Church and an in-
depth study of the Doctrine and
Covenants which is a book of scrip-
ture that relates revelations from
Heavenly Father that were received in
these, the latter days.
Some of the basic beliefs of the
L.D.S. religion are that God, the
Eternal Father, his son, Jesus Christ
and the Holy Spirit are three distinct
personages. The Father and Jesus
Christ have bodies of flesh and bone,
while the Holy Spirit does not and
has a spirit body. Latter-day Saints
also believe in present day revelation
from Heavenly Father.
The Church leadership is struc-
tured like that of the ancient Church
in the time of Jesus Christ. A pro-
phet, called of God, presides over the
Church by guiding and directing its
members through inspiration and
direction from Heavenly Father. He
has three counselors, a Quorum of
Twelve Apostles and the Quorum of
Seventy, who are also prophets.
Latter-day Saints seek to improve
themselves by setting and attaining
goals geared toward improving their
lives in positive ways. The ultimate
goal is to return to the Celestial
Kingdom to live with Heavenly
Father for time and all eternity. They
seek after all things that are honest,
true, chaste, benevolent and of good
Latter-day Saints also strive to
serve their fellow men. The Church
has a welfare program independent of
the US. Welfare Program, which is
made up of farms, ranches, factories
and storehouses all over the world.
They believe that when one is in the
service of fellow men, one is in the
service of God.
L.D.S.S.A. on campus not only
unifies and educates Latter-day Saints
students, but offers Institute classes
and other activities to non-L.D.S.
students who wish to know more
about the Church.
Alpha Chi is a national organiza-
tion of students in higher education
who unite to express the person and
claims of Jesus Christ to their campus
As a lieommunityl, of some of
God,s college-age people we seek to

goals. We include the concept of

l t was an interesting year in music -- a
year without anything like the Disco or
Country crazes that had swept America
in previous years. And while Disco and
Country were still frequent visitors to the top of
the charts, no single musical style dominated the
year. Instead, there was a return to hard driving
pop songs and sweet ballads.
The year began with tragedy. The murder of former
Beatle J ohn Lennon in New York City catapulted his single
ltStarting Over" into the Number One position on the pop
charts. HDouble Fantasy," the album he recorded with his
wife Yoko Ono, also jumped to Number One on the album
chart. It was a dramatic way to begin the year and ironic
that ltStarting Over,, was the single that would have mark-
ed Lennon's comeback.
Replacing uStarting Over" at the top was the third
Number One single for a former punk band with a former
Playboy bunny as lead singer -- Blondie with the reggae
tinged ttThe Tide Is High? Debbie Harry led Blondie not
only to the top of the pop chart with the ttThe Tide Is
High? but to the top of the Disco chart as well.
Also in the Top Ten early in the year were Bruce
Springsteents ttHungry Heartfl Rod Stewartls ttPassion,"
Diana Ross' llltls My Turnt, and the Policels ttDedododo,
March began with Dolly Parton handing the top spot
on the pop chart to fellow country man Eddie Rabbitt with
ttl Love A Rainy Night? Styx jumped into the Top Ten
with uThe Best of Times? Don McClean started a com-
eback with an old Roy Orbison hit -- ttCrying" and a
Texas-based duo scored a pop, soul and disco hit -- Yar-
brough and Peoples with ltDonit Stop the Music?
March also marked the beginning of the stay at the
top for the yearls Number One album -- REO Speed-
wagon,s uHi Infidelity? Except for the three weeks when
Styxls ttParadise Theaterlt was Number One, REO Speed-
wagon speng an incredible 13 weeks as the n t' ,
selling LP, a Ion s best
The Year in Pop Music
April Foolts Day saw a new record in the Number One
place -- a silly but infectious parody on the Soul chartts rap
records. Blondie,s hit, ttRaptureW told of men from Mars
eating cars and bars and guitars.
Daryl Hall and John Oates racked up the second
Number One single of their career with a bouncy tune call-
ed ttKiss On My Listft Smokey Robinson returned to the
pop chart with a Number One soul ballad, ttBeing With
Yout, and jazz great Grover Washington, Jr. did the same
with help from singer Bill Withers and ttJust the Two of

the ttMorning Traini, to Number One in the U.S., UK,
Canada and Australia. A controversial figure in the UK.
because of her starring role in a documentary about
youngsters being fashioned into pop starts, Sheena Easton
became the most popular new singer of the year. Easton
climbed the charts again with ttModern Girlb in July and
again in October with the theme from the J ames Bond film
ttFor Your Eyes Only?
For, a week in June it appeared that Kim Carnes,
stranglehold on the top position would not last longer than
five weeks. Right in the middle of ltBette Davis Eyesm
stay at the top, a studio group from Holland spent a week
at Number One with ttMedleyP The group was Stars On
45 and their novelty record was a medley of 12 songS
originally by the Beatles, Shocking Blue and the ArChiCS-
Also turning in hit performances during June were
country songstress Dottie West with ttWhat Are We Doing
In Love? soul and disco star Rick James with uGive It To
Me Baby,i and Neil Diamond who followed ttLove On the
Rocks" with tlAmerica," from the soundtrack of iiThe
Jazz Singer? Gary U.S. Bonds staged a comeback, With
Bruce Springsteents help, with ttThis Little Girl?
Country artists made strong showingS on the pop
charts in July. The Oak Ridge Boys and Alabama took
ltElvirail and ttFeels So Righttt to the top of the country
chart and into the Top Ten on the pop chart.
iiLong Distance Voyager,t by the Moody Blues
replaced Kim Carnes, ttMistaken Identitytt as the 11105t

As the summer drew to a close, the yearls hottest
record turned out to be a cool ballad by one of musicis
most popular ladies and the composer of the year. Beginn-
mg in August and continuing for nine unbroken weeks,
Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie gave the title song from the
BlOOke Shields film uEndless Love" a feather and leather
Itcatment that eventually made ttEndless Loveii the
Number One song of the year.

Diana Ross made headlines by splitting with Motown
records after 20 years and producing her own LP for RCA.
Both the album and its title track ttWhy Do Fools Fall in

with the LP ttNine Tonightil and the single ttTrying to

bleil and Quarterflash with ttHarden My Heart?
Foreigner returned again to the top of the album chart with
tt4" and to the top of the singles chart with ttWaiting tor a
Girl Like You? .
As the year closed and year-end Charts were tallied,
there were no surprises. Music in America hadn't been
shaken by huge forces the way it had been in years before1
The year had its share of new faces and the return of
several old ones but it had been a year Characterized by a
return to the good old days -- upbeat rockers and tearful
ballads. - Brian Kills
