Text from Pages 1 - 328 of the 1983 volume:
To speak of the production of this yearbook is a difficult thing, almost as
difficult as was putting the book together. My goal at the beginning was to
produce a book that would capture the school year as it was for us, the
students from quarter to quarter. We did our best to accomplish this, hiring
more writers and photographers and keeping in touch with student organiza-
tions and the administration.
The going was rough, with a burglary, failure of the K-Book to be put on tuition bills as a
sales option, and a major cut in student organization fees all hitting us within a few short
months. Nevertheless, we maintained our high standards of production quality and sacrific-
ed as little as possible.
Of course I have an endless number of people to thank, especially Robyn Wolf, Gerard
Cortinez, Carl Nielsen, Lori Walter, Mike Lyman, Colleen Kent and Julie Bisgard, with
whom I worked most closely. Bob Burrell, Kevin Lindahl and the Board of Communica-
tions, the Board of Contingency, Geraldine Hasty, Robert Lazarus and J ulia Nord were all
enormously helpful and encouraging. Thanks to Pat Hoyos, 1982 editor, for his help and in-
spiration. And many special thanks to Sue Poovey of Hunter Publishing Company, for the
help, support and personal care she gave me. And, most especially, much love and thanks to
my wonderful husband, Kyle, who supported me and understood while I raved and spent so
many long hours working.
Special thanks to Karen Hughes for her tennis photos, which were not credited, to the
Sports Information Department, and to Robert M. Hopper, 1935 KYNEWISBOK editor
and Dean James Colwell, 1948 editor, for their generous contributions.
Special thanks also to Michael Gallegos and Dr. Steven Robinson of CSUis Physics
We intend this book to be a record of our school year as it happened. More importantly,
we hope that in twenty years you will open this book and, page by page, fondly recall the
school year 1982-83.
Now my charms are all oierthrown,
And what strength I have,s mine own,
Which is but faint...
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
Which was to please.
As you from crimes would be pardoned be,
Let your indulgence set me free.

unemployment - and a
baby headlined the
worlds news 1982-83.
Families in many cities
across the United States
saw fathers and mothers
laid off from their steel-
working, mining, and
without any promise of re-
employment. At the same
time, teacher strikes in
many cities kept children
from learning, bus strikes
in Denver and elsewhere
kept people from work,
rail strikes across
America kept goods from
being shipped and a Na-
tional Football League
strike kept the fans from
It seemed inflation hit
almost everyone , except
the Congress - especially
hard this year. President
Ronald Reagan pushed to
ratify a Constitutional
amendment to make it
unlawful to run the
government without a
balanced budget. At the
same time, he was cutting
government programs and
laying off federal workers
while adding billions of
dollars to bolster the
country7s defense. Social

Perpetual war existed in
Lebanon, with the Palesti-

tion taking over Beirut
before finally agreeing to
pull out its forces. Within
two weeks, Israeli jets
bombed the ravaged city
and hundreds of Palesti-
nian refugees were brutal-
ly gunned down outside
Beirut, causing a world-
wide rage at the
murderers. Other murders
occurred in London,
where the Irish
Republican Army left
bombs to explode in
crowded city parks, killing
tmen and horses.
Shortly after Hollywood
finished mourning the
death of long-time actor
Henry Fonda due to heart
ailments, actress Ingrid
Bergman, best known for
her role in Casablanca,
died of cancer. Not long
after this, Her Serene
Highness Princess Grace
of Monaco drove off a
mountain road with her
daughter Stephanie, ap-
parently the victim of a
stroke. She died the next
day in a Monaco hospital,

Americans as Oscar-

Finally, as a bright spot
in the darkness of the
worlds crises, a baby was
born. Prince William Louis
Arthur George, son of
Prince Charles and
Princess Diana of Wales,
was born June 21, 1982.
He is heir to the throne of
England, second in line
after his father. The baby
came close to being an
anniversary gift to Charles
and Diana, who were mar-

Conflicts in the Middle East
have drawn our attention
many times over the past
twenty years, as countries and
peoples have clashed over
land and freedom. While some
are still fighting, and others
striving toward peace, the
focus this summer has been on
Lebanon and hsinvanon by
laaeh sddkxs on June 6,
Americans have viewed this event
through U.S. newspaper headlines.
Yet, the Unversity of Denver can
view things from a unique perspec-
tive, from the eyes of one of its own
students who was there, in Lebanon
this summer fighting as an Israeli
tiAs I see myself as a student, I'm
older than other students l25l, yet I
do not think I missed anything start-
ing college at a later age--because I
gave a lot to my country. In defend-
ing something which is important to
you, you gain maturity." This Israeli
student lremaining anonymousl was
required to serve three years service
in the Israeli army at age 18. Now on
reserve, he returns to his homeland,
as he did this summer, to serve from
thirty to sixty days each year.
The Israeli forces entered Lebanon
this past summer to accomplish two
major objectives. Most imperative
was the aim to remove the Palesti-
nian Liberation Organization lPLOl
from Israel,s northern border,
pushing them back 40 kilometers, in
order to stop them from shelling
Israeli settlements in that area, so
those people would be able to live in
peace. They ultimately wanted to
remove PLO and Syrians from all of
Lebanon, so that Syria lwithisupport
from RUssial could not open another
front against Israel, and Lebanon
could have their own strong govern-
ment, and peace in which to live.
DU's Israeli student became in-
volved as a soldier in the conflict on
June 9th after the PLO had been
successfully pushed back 40
kilometers inside Lebanon, so his in-
volvement was mainly fighting
against the Syrians.
In addition to removing the PLO
from its northern border, Israeli
forces surrounded Beirut to force the
PLO to leave the city in order to give
Lebanon a chance to build its own
government. lllf we just obtained the
first objective--then it would solve the
problem only for now. In two years
the same situation would come back.
Israel doesnt want to stay in
ilIt was guerilla warfare with the
PLO hiding behind rocks. There
were so many occasions when good
friends of mine were killed because
they didnt want to shoot Lebanese
civilians. The terrorists hid behind the
civilians to shoot Israelis."
The soldier saw much unpleasant-
ness while in the war-torn Lebanon.
itMany Lebanese girls came crying to
us, throwing rice as a symbol of afa
fectioni telling us how PLO members
came to their houses, raped wives
and daughters, took them away and
their husbands to prison and killed
them so they wouldnt find out. . .The
PLO lived well, taking anything they
wanted from Lebanon, as if it were
their own country. "
ill couldnlt believe how many
weapons there were in Southern
Lebanon, provided by USSR, U.S.
lthe M-16 given to Saudi Arabia by
the U.S.l, Germany, and other
countries. That amount of weapons
didnlt fit a terrorist organization, its
more like an army? He feels these
tanks, grenades, and missiles stored
are ready to be used one day by the
PLO. He saw documents showing
the PLO connection with Russia.
The US. has interests too, to keep
Israel alive as a strong ally against
Many other Arab countries are in-
volved besides Israel and Lebanon.
tiA lot of Arab countries have internal
problems--fighting against Israel
unites them and helps them to forget
their own problems. If the Palestinian
problem is talked about and solved,
the Arab countries will have to deal
with their own internal problems with
religion, economics, and political

good relationships with Israelis. ill

itWho are they tlsraell to have
more of a right in that land than the
Palestinians who were born there?" is
the opinion of another DU student
who has strong feelings about the
conflict in Lebanon. iiAs a person
who is neither Arab nor Jew, my opi-
nion is not necessarily determined by
national origin? said this Greek stus
dent who asked to remain
The Greeks had a similar problem
in Cyprus when Turkey invaded and
took 4096 of the island forcing more
than 200,000 Cypriots of Greek de-
scent to migrate south in 1974.
Yet his mind is on Israel today. tilt
you look at the situation objectively
without any prejudice, you would
think that the Palestinians are entitled
to their own homeland, to have their
Palestinian land was taken by
Israel in 1948, with a war in 56 and
another in 67 taking the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. They refused to let
Palestinians return to their own
homeland. Palestinians have been
forced to disperse throughout many
world countries. UAll the Palestinians
are asking is that they be allowed to
return to their homes iwhich is a
basic human righti, to live in a
secular state and determine their
iiPalestinians are victims of Israeli
expansion." He feels Israel is primari-
ly following an expansionist policy
not necessarily in the interest of the
Israeli people, because the moral
character of the war is wrong, and
there is controversy between Palesti-
nian Jews over whether war was
This student sees that eventually
Palestinians will definitely get their
land back because Israel is facing
many problems: it is a military state--
everyone constantly serves in the ar-
my, it has severe economic problems
with one of the highest inflationary
rates in the world, and pro-PLO ac-
tivity in the West Bank and in the
land of Israel is increasing.
The student feels that Reagan is
following an imperialist policy in try-
ing to convince certain conservative
Arab nations such as Jordan and
Saudi Arabia to unite with Israel, and
is essentially ignoring the main issue-
tthe Palestinians. Yet, it is hard for
Reagan to change his stand, icause
itls built into the American govern-
ment foreign policy that their fun-
damental interest is in Israel and con-
servative oil-producing Arab
iiYou canit blame American
students for their views, because they
are victims of certain types of social
education that builds certain pre-
judices against people such as
minorities and foreigners, and they
are ignorant of the Israeli conflict."
iiMy friendships with Israeli iJewsi
could cause problems because of my
views, yet because Iim not an Arab,
I'm not faced with such prejudice."
This student sees several negative
consequences of this summeris inva-
sion of Lebanon. iiWhen over 1,000
Palestinians were murdered in a
massacre of Palestinian camps, it was
Israelis fault because as the occupy-
ing power it was their responsibility
for the actions of the Lebanese Chris-
tians. Israel is trying to force the
Lebanese government to sign a trea-
ty recognizing Israel as a legitimate
state, which might threaten their rela-
tionship with other Arab nations."
This student ultimately feels there
will be a fair solution; the Palestinians
will be given back their land because
they are determined and organized,
in the PLO which is recognized by
more countries than is Israel.
Henry Fonda: A Legend Remembered
Most of us will remember the
late actor Henry Fonda as the
crusty but soft-hearted old man
who came to terms with the
autumn of life in On Golden
Pond, bringing to us through his
performance a deeper appreciation
Mr. Fonda showed us many
views of life through his portrayal
of characters such as Tom load in
the 1940ls Grapes of Wrath and
the thoughtful juror in Twelve
Angry Men. He brought to life
roles of victim in The Wrong Man,
coward in Welcome to Hard
Times, stiff neck in Fort Apache,
blackguard in Once Upon a Time
in the West, sly egotist in My
Name is Nobody and raw presiden-
tial timber in Young Mr. Lincoln.
In his death, we have lost a
great actor, but in his living we
have gained an understanding of
what it really means to live life to
its fullest, making oneis work a
fulfilling part of that life and the
lives of others.
Henry Fonda died in August of $lgz
1982 at age 77 of heart disease.

Heir To The Throne
nouncing the birth of their first
born - the future king.
Prince Charles, 33, shared in the
birth as Princess Diana, 20,
delivered a 7 lb., 1V2 oz. boy. On-
statement and a common
one, but when it was made
on June 21, 1982 the western
world took notice. The heir to the
I tts a Boy," a joyous
throne of Britain was born.
Why does the population of a
country like the United States take
notice of such a birth? After all,
the founders of our nation did go
to the trouble of writing a con-
stitution that excluded royalty with
all the traditions, pomp and cir-
cumstance that accompany it.
Perhaps the American fascination
with royalty is because nowhere in
American society is there an
equivalent. So just as we rolled out
of bed at four in the morning less
than a year before to watch the
royal wedding of Charles and
Diana, we once again got up to
read the front page headlines an-
ly a select number of individuals
are remembered in the pages of
history for their deeds during life.
The new Prince had only to be
born to make a page.
The Prince was christened
William Arthur Philip Louis. T0
the British public he is affec-
tionately known as ttSweet William
the Prince of Wales? His birth
gave Britains a reason to smile in a
summer filled with problems. The
bitter and costly Falklandis war
and the highest unemplyment in
history were all but forgotten as
crowds gathered outside the
hospital to cheer the birth.

Armed with little more than per-
sonal courage and deep piety, the
Polish people have a continuing
legacy of bravery and tough
resistence that is second to none.
This agonized nation has gone
from under the thumb of one
tyrant--Nazi Germany, to another--
the Soviet Union. A forty-three
year history of occupation and un-
popular rule would be sufficient to
break the spirit of any lesser
group. The Poles, however, have
survived and are continuing their
struggle for better rule and greater
Solidarity and Lech Walesa may
be purged and eventually
destroyed, but Polandis spirit will
remain. A man can be killed or a
union outlawed, but a national
ethic can never be completely
destroyed. Somewhere a spark will
remain that will always re-kindle
the spirit of the Polish people.
General Wojciech Jaruzelski, the
leader of the junta currently in
power, can physically bring the
Polish people under his control,
but they will never succumb in
spirit. He may rule through force,
but he will never command the
hearts and minds of the Polish
people. He has awesome military
strength, but that is all he has. He
is only a man and he can and will
be swept away.
In mourning for the people of
Poland, one should mourn only
for a friend in the agony of strug-
gle, not for one who is dead. The
spirit of Walesa and Solidarity will
live on and the fight for greater
freedom will continue.

-comment by Linda Petersen
n September 29, 1982, the
Chest selling apirin substitute
became a killer. It was to
kill six more times before it would
be checked. Capsules of Extra-
Strength Tylenol were found laced
with cyanide, a poison so deadly
that it kills within minutes, in what
has become the biggest consumer
alert in history.
The victims, all Chicago-area
residents, died within days of each
other. Tylenolls manufacturer,
Johnson and Johnson subsidiary
McNeil Consumer Products Co.,
recalled two batches of the
nationwide--and the federal food
and drug administration warned
Americans not to take any Extra-
Strength Tylenol capsules until the
mystery was solved. While
drugstores and supermarkets from
coast to coast pulled Tylenol pro-
ducts off their shelves, Colorado
health officials had no such plan.
The reason for Colorado,s seem-
ing lack of concern over a very
serious matter was that state
health officials found no bottles
from the suspected batches during
a spot check of local stores.
Despite state health officials
assurance that all of. the drug in
the state was safe, several major
pharmacy and grocery chains,
Safeway, King Soopers,
Albertsonls and Osco Drugs,
ordered the medication off their
shelves as a precautionary
The question now was how did
the cyanide get into the capsules of
Tylenol. An accident at the plant
seemed unlikely as the fatal cap-
sules came from two different
plants. The contamination had to
be recent because the cyanide com-
pound was a corrosive and would
break down the capsulesi gelatin
shell. Most telling is the undeniable
evidence of tampering. According
to Illinois Attorney General
Tyrone Fahner, ttln each case, the
bottle had several capsules with
cyanide in them and several
without. You can see that the cap-
sules have been pulled apart very
inartfully, then the cyanide was
put in, and the capsules were shov-
ed back together."
With the discovery of individual
tampering, the poisonings reached
the height of hysteria. The thought
of an over-the-counter killer,
someone that was tampering with
products that millions of
Americans buy every day, was at
the very least unsettling. The threat
of copycats became very real as
Lavoris, Extra-Strength Excedrin
and some types of Anacin were
found to contain various forms of
McNeil Consumer Products Co.,

their product, began to run

ing consumers how to exchange

capsules were found to have been

the are doing everything we can
to keep your trust? said the ad.
uWe want all Tylenol capsule users
to now use Tylenol tablets until the
new tamper-resistant capsule
packaging is available."
If individual medications need
protective seals, they are con-
ceivable for a wide range of other
products. Even then, there is really
no guarantee of safety; if someone
wanted to harm consumers he
would surely find some way to do
it. tl The magnitude of the
possibilities is what frightens me?

Health Toxicologist John J.
Spikes. ltWe know what we are
dealing with. We just donlt know
when and how. Or, most disturb-
ing of all, why--and whether
similar horrors can be prevented in
It was a scene which has been
played out again and again
throughout history. Men fought
and died for a piece of land which
many had never heard of before,
and which soon would be forgot-
ten in the emergence of new
conflicts--conilicts in places like
Lebanon and Iran.
When Argentina invaded the
Falklands, those hostile, windswept
and inhospitable islands some 7800
miles from the United Kingdom, it
was a gamble from the outset. It
was a gamble that Britainls long
history of imperialistic exploitation
would turn world opinion in favor
of Argentina. At the same time, it
was a desperate gamble by Argen-
tine President Galtieri that the
devastating domestic problems of
his country would be eclipsed and
public opinion would focus upon
the performance of the army
rather than the performance of the
Argentine ruling junta.
For the British, the crisis in the
Falklands was also a considerable
gamble. With rioting in the streets
and runaway inflation, calling out
the Heet was a financial burden on
the system and a politically
dangerous move for Prime
Minister Thatcher and her party.
In all gambles there must be a
winner and a loser, yet it is hard to
view the Falklands crisis in this
Who won? ln limited terms,

lost the money that could have
helped the countryls numerous
poor. But, more than just the two
parties directly involved lost. For
the men who lost their lives in pur-
suit of a nationalistic idea, they
lost not only their most precious
asset, their lives, but also the
hopes and dreams of the families
they left behind. The U.S. lost,
because both sides were largely
armed with American weapons.
And perhaps most tragically of all,
humankind lost another opportuni-
ty to settle a dispute peacefully and
dispell the notion that gambling
with human lives is acceptable.
The war for the Falklands has
probably not had its final Chapter
written. The conflict dates back to
the first colonial settlements of the
South American coast, and the
blood shed for it has in all pro-
bability been in vain.
Comment by Linda Petersen
Reagan Budget: 82 Dilemma
he major plitical and
T economic battle of 1982 took
place in the halls of Congress
as legislators in part debated, re-
jected, accepted, and manicured the
components of President Ronald
Reaganls fiscal offering. The budget
battle revolved largely around what
has become the conservative dilem-
ma of the early 1980s: how does
one decrease taxes, increase defense
spending, and end up with a balanc-
ed budget? President Reagan,s first
step was to cut social spending from
obscure job programs to social
Generally, the President arose the
victor after the budget battle of
1982, despite the sacrifice of
measures which would have
toughened abortion laws, permitted
voluntary prayer in public schools,
and placed limitations on busing for
the purpose of desegregation. A
constitutional amendment which
would have required a balanced
federal budget was also lost, and a
bill providing tax credits for private
school tuitions was deemed a back-
President Reaganls successes were
numerous. His spending cuts affect-
ing welfare, food stamps, health,
veterans, agriculture, and federal
retirement programs amount to a
reduction of 28.4 billion dollars
over 3 years. Federal revenue was
increased by 98 billion dollars over 3
years through the establishment of
more excise taxes and the elimina-
tion of some tax lopholes. The
Presidentls veto of a program which
would have provided 3 billion
dollars in emergency housing aid
was sustained. In the area of
defense, a resolution providing for a
nuclear weapons freeze was
defeated and the Reagan ad-
ministration increased its
underground nuclear testing budget
by 59 percent.
The flood of controversy over the
budget left many issues unresolved.
Bills involving reform of immigra-
tion policy, the use of the insanity
defense in criminal trials, a billion-
dollar job-creation program, and a
bill designed to strengthen the
American auto industry all face
While many portions of the 1982
budget escaped the scrutiny of the
press and the public, the glaring ef-
fects of the cuts in social spending
were felt by many University of
Denver students who found less
federal money available to help
them through school. This, coupled
with high unemployment rates in
many areas, amounted to a decrease
in enrollment and the absence of
many upperclassmen who were
financially unable to return to
school. Despite the signs that our
economy is improving, the
devastating effect which spending
cuts have had on students ability to
continue their education serves as a
monument to the state of the
economy which no one is proud of.
Americas favorite pasttime had
seen a change in the fall of 1982. In-
stead of settling down with beer and
pretzels in front of the TV to cheer on
their favorite football teams, many
Americans grabbed a Coke and
cookies and settled for reruns of 81
Love Lucy." For upwards of twenty
weeks the National Football League
was on strike.
While team members, coaches
and owners negotiated to no
agreeable ene, muscles became
unused and fans lost interest. When
finally the first post-strike games were
played, fans were disappointed to
see unnecessary fumbles and bad
plays, and many decided they had
better things to do. Super bowl XVII
this year did not have as big a build-
up as in years before.
The Denver Broncos ended their
nine-game season with only 2 wins
and 7 losses. And Denver fans

Colorado-it is many things
to many people. It is a state
that wears many different
faces-from boom state of the
gold rush days to ski heaven
to wilderness areas and cattle
ranches to the promise of
energy enough to run the na-
tion. To the students of
Denver University, it may be
merely a step between school
and a career; a place in
which to gain independence
or, perhaps, it is home. No
matter the focus or context,
however; there is simply no
denying that Colorado is a
unique state, and it has had
a unique year.
Politically, big things are hap-
pening in Colorado as the 1984

Denver saw itself on the interna-
tional theatre circuit, hosting the
World Theatre Festival which
hosted shows from fourteen coun-
tries this summer. On the music
scene, Colorado has seen the best
and the worst. The Colorado State
Fair, held annually in Pueblo,
found itself with severe financial
losses. Singer Linda Ronstadt
agreed to give a benefit concert,
but ticket sales were anemic and
the show was cancelled, incurring
more debts on the State Fair Com-
mission. On the brighter side, The
Who included Colorado in its final
concert tour and played to a sold
out audience in Boulder, while
other popular acts, including Fleet-
wood Mac and Neil Young, per-
forned in Denver throughout the
year. Additionally, Colorado resi-
dent Willie Nelson agreed to help
the beleaguered Colorado State
Fair with a benefit concert.

goal was realized for a group of
DU. women when a chapter of
the national Delta Zeta sorority
was installed on campus May 23, 1982
with 38 members.
The universityls newest sorority
began as a local group, Upsilon
Sigma, in the winter of 1981. It was
founded on the belief that young
goal-oriented women would benefit
from the supportive atmosphere
created by networking, a process
which provides resources and sup-
portiveness to help individuals reach
their goals. The Delta Zeta sorority
was chosen by the DU. women
because its founding principles seem-
ed to match those of Upsilon Sigma.
In going national and expanding
its membership rapidly, the group
saw a challenge in keeping its unity
while adding two or three new
members a week. llDelta Zetals tran-
sition from colony to chapter was
rough at times, but the support we
received from the Greek system was
helpful when we had questions or
problems that needed solving," said
Carol Giles, one of the group's foun-
Giles and President Karen Micek
are the only founding members who
became members of Delta Zeta.
Giles sees Delta Zeta membership as
not just one type person, but rather a
group of young women, with diver-
sified talents and interests, who share
common goals and ideas.
Delta Zetals goals for its first year
included expansion and further in-
volvement in the Greek community
as well as on the DU. campus.
ttNow that we have been established
as a national chapter, we' need to
focus on growth not only in size, but
also in internal strength," said Giles.
The Delta Zeta group this fall achiev-
ed a primary goal in obtaining its own
house, the Pi Phi house on
Josephine Street, leased from the Pi
Beta Phi national.
The advent of a Delta Zeta chapter
on the DU. campus was in a sense a
rebirth, for D.U. had a Delta Zeta
chapter from 1917 to 1953 which
folded due to the lack of women at-
tending college after World War II.
ispute over rent increase
drew attention to dissatisfied
University Park Manor
tenants last spring, resulting in a
compromise between administration
and tenants. The compromise was in
the form of a $20.00 per month rent
increase rather than the proposed
12.2070, which would have
amounted to $25.00 per month.
Tenants of the DU. facility for
married student housing realized an
increase was necessary for badly
needed repairs of windows, drapes,
lighting, security, and more. Their
concern, however, was that surplus
garnered from rent money was not
being channeled directly into
maintenance of UPM.
Tenants accepted the compromise
with the stipulation that they have in-
creased communication with Vice
Chancellor of Student Affairs, Tom
Goodale. uBetter lighting in the park-
ing lot for security, and a slush fund
for maintenance were promised,"
said Tom Otto, Chairman of a Steer-
ing Committee for Housing Costs
and Repairs formed by the UPM
Tenants Council to organize a rent
Otto feels that the case of UPM
residents is different from residents of
dorms and other D.U. housing. He
says, liPerceptions of UPM tenants
with children and families are vastly
different than those of undergrads
whose parents pay and who go
home for the summer."
Tenants would rather have had a
lower increase; nevertheless, they
were pleased that their voices were
being heard. Administration gave
tenants a line item budget and an
oral commitment to make repairs.
liAs for this years major im-
provements, l have decided to begin
a program of repairing windows and
additional lighting for security. These
will be in conjunction with other
repairs, including steam lines,
boilers, water lines, etc, that were
listed as a must for this yearf' said
Director of Housing Ted Johnson.
The committee has found the new
line item budget acceptable,
although tlJohnsonls original list
of repair costs was literally bloated
anywhere from 10070 to 80070, accor-
ding to research we did with the elec-
tric company, etcf said Otto.
Johnson reports that the amount
the students thought appropriate was
actually more than he anticipated in
Otto feels the steering committee
has served its purpose in dealing with
housing costs and repair. Tenants
received promises from the ad-
ministraiton and they waited to see
what would happen. But, says Otto,

is a weekend activity planned ex-
pecially for freshman at DU. It takes
place at Geneva Glen camp in Indian
Hills, where students interact infor-
mally with faculty members, ad-
ministrators, and upperclass
students. This year Geneva Glen oc-
curred on the weekend of September
17 through 18.

iiWe had a small turnout in terms
of numbers. Only 130 people went
this year. It fell on Rosh Hashanah
and there was horrible weather. We
had a great time though. I think we
had a better experience this year
because it was more personalizedf,
Rooks said. According to Rooks,
there was a higher level of
facultyrstudent interaction and there
were virtually no drinking problems,
as opposed to other years.
Geneva Glen included planned
and impromptu activities guaranteed
to please everyone in spite of the in-
clement weather. The movie Monty
Pythonls iiThe Life of Brian" was
shown following a night of in-
vigorating square dancing.
An outpost program option was
offered to those participants who

The weekend began October 28,
with the kickoff concert with The Lit-

KAOS Returns To Air Despite Slowdown
From what was once KAOS,
a new radio station, KEGH,
arose last spring in Centennial
Towers to serve the residence
halls as an AM station. KAOS
originally served as a dormitory
program, but last year the
name was changed to KEGH,
and it became an all-university
project. lts eventual goal was
to serve the apartment halls
and Greek housing, also,
according to Assistant Dean of
Students Dan Hulitt. Ewan
Grantham, an enthusiastic
sophomore appointed general
manager of the station, helped
considerably in planning and
acquiring funding for the fledg-
ling station. Also instrumental
in planning was Randy Giles,

During the summer, transmit-
ters were installed in Centen-
nial Towers, Halls, and J-Mac
through their phone lines.
Though the station had a pro-
mising start in spring, it was
thrown back into chaos by fall
A total staff loss, accented
by the unexplained loss of
Grantham, along with the
resignation of Giles, was deem-
ed a iltotal setback" by AUSA
Senator Rick Von Gnechten,
who was appointed to head a
committee to get KEGH runn-
ing. According to Hulitt, the
station needed a general
manager, a program director, a
business manager, a promo-
tional person, and disc jockies.
Another problem, carried over
from last spring, was cleaning
up and organizing the station,
along with replacing its old
equipment. Another problem to
be dealth with, according to
Von Gnechten, was a lack of
employee reliability. In spring,
1982, while KEGH was broad-
casting experimentally in
Towers, there were problems
scheduling DJls to work,
especially during midaterms
and finals. Despite these set-
backs, Von Gnechten predicted
that once people got organized
the station could be on within
three weeks after a general
manager was selected.
According to Janice Wong,
unofficial general manager dur-
ing the staff selection period,
there was a lot of interest in
the positions, especially
among freshmen. She saw a
need for iinew and diverse peo-
ple" to get involved. In mid-
October Steve Kopel, a
sophomore with five years of
experience in radio, was
selected as general manager,
with Ron Gilbert as his assis-
tant general manager. Janice

that, with good equipment and
trained DJls, students would
feel confident enough to bring
their own records to the station
to be played.
One of the first decisions
made by the new management
was to change the stations
name back to KAOS, pending
the approval of the Senate. One
reason, according to Wong,
was that KAOS had more
potential for having a posibive

Special Election Results
One event fall quarter that prov-
ed successful was AUSA,s special
election held on Tuesday, October
12, 1982, due to an increase in
voter turn-out compared to the
number of students voting in last
springis general election. A total of
640 students voted for two Arts
and Sciences Senators and a
referendum issue. Fernando Serpa
and J . Andrew Bowman defeated
eight other candidates for the
senate seats with 104 and 77 votes
Serpais goal as an Arts and
Sciences Senator is to consider
several issues that are before the
senate, such as a constitutional
change and recognition of different
organizations. Serpa says he wants
to tiexamine these issues more in
depth than previous senators and
spend more time with them? Serpa
wants to have a good understan-
ding of the issues and as he says,
iibetter serve the needs of the
After talking with Robert Lazarus,
Andrew Bowman was asked to
begin work on a project involving
setting up an organization similar to
the Business Commission in the
College of Arts and Sciences.

CoPlRG, the Colorado Public ln-
terest Research Group, became a
controversial group this year as it
renewed its effort to open a chapter
at DU. THe PlRG organization,
which has chapters at CU-Boulder,
Colorado State University and
University of Northern Colorado,
originally began in Oregon in 1972
as a response to Ralph Nader's
consumer crusades. The group
researches and lobbies on issues
such as consumer protection,
energy conservation, and en-
vironmental preservation. In the
spring of 1982, the COPIRG
Organizing Committee published a
grocery price index and an apart-
ment guide for the DU area. The
group would benefit students, ac-
cording to the COPIRG literature,
by giving them the chance to
Vows to Try Again
ttbecome educated on issues facing
Colorado today and become involv-
ed in the research, writing, and lob-
bying that may shape its future."
However, several objections to
CoPlRG were raised, the most im-
portant being an objection to its
funding. The money would have
come from a $2 increase per
quarter in each studentls activity
fee, a charge which. would have
been refunded upon request. The
AUSA Senate in October, however,
turned down CoPlRGls bid due to
this form of funding. Used by
PIRGs in other states, this plan was
thought necessary to raise enough
money for COPIRG to be an in-
fluential part of the DU campus.
According to AUSA Senator Paige
Richardson, a Senate allocation
would not cover expenses such as
hiring lobbyists and researchers.
Other objections, promoted by the
College Republicans, included
charges that the group thrives on
apathy, and that the group is not a
non-partisan organization, since it
clearly takes sides on issues.
In early October, 1982, CoPlRG
started a petition drive and publicity
campaign to turn out the vote for a
referendum held on October 12,
1982, in which students were
allowed to vote whether they ap-
proved of the $2 increase in the ac-
tivity fee. Though the petition drive
generated over 1400 signatures, the
measure was defeated by a vote of
455 to 185. According to the
CoPIRG Organizing Committee, the
next step may be a push for an op-
tional fee to be added to the
J ohn Anderson
The American political system is
stagnant according to former
political candidate John Anderson
who spoke to a full house in the
University of Denver Fieldhouse.
The focus of his talk was
centered around two main themes:
the lack of new avenues of political
expression and the detrimental ef-
fect of strong special interest
Anderson said that the special in-
terest groups were becoming in-
creasingly influential upon the
political parties. HThe candidates
are becoming more responsive to
election politics and special interests
than to party programs?
Anderson also feels that the
political parties have lost the ability
to act as a mediating solution. uWe
are a nation where the parts are
warring against the whole. As a
result, a political, dynamic factor is
rising out of this dissatisfaction," he
As proof of this belief, Anderson
quoted Senator Robert Dole
lR-Kansasl as saying, ilThe special
interests are so bad that we wont
be able to legislate anymore?
Anderson added, llWe must pledge
to resist and reject contributions
from political action committees.
The political contributions have in-
creased ten-fold in the past couple
of years and it is starting to
Anderson feels that there is an
increasing demand for a new
political party. llCurrently the two
parties do not serve the aggregating
function they are supposed to. The
two parties are destroying the road
of party politics," he said.
liThe responsibility should be put
into the institutions of private in-
terests in oorder to receive policy
interests," he said.
The third political party would be
a nucleus of present splinter parties.
There would be an integration of
the supply-side Republican and the
demandeside Democratic economic
philosophies, Anderson said.
tlThis third party would articulate
a distinctive view," said Anderson.
For himself, running under a new
political party would be ildifficult but
uThe voters have become
cosmically cynic about the political
system," said Anderson. Anderson
cited a poll that stated that 72 per-
cent of the Americans polled do not
think the politicians plan on keeping
their campaign promises. Another
64 percent think that the politicians
would lie if the truth would hurt
Anderson also commented on
the state of affairs in the current
Reagan administration. He criticized
Reagan for following an isolation
policy in foreign affairs. llThere is a
difference between isolationist and
isolation. An isolationist doestnot
play the game. Isolation policy is a
government acting on a global
scale, but acting alone without the
support of the western nations,"
Reagan is moving at an ex-
travagant pace with regard to the
defense build-up and the nuclear
freeze, according to Anderson.
HThe talks are all for propaganda
purposes? he said.
Anderson is opposed to the
Reagan defense build-up. llArms
control is a very important corner of
my foreign affairs platform, We
need to reconstruct the traditional
alliances with the western nations,"
Economically, Anderson criticized
Reagan for his lack of success in
the Reaganomics program. ttThere
was an eith-tenths of one percent
increase in the Gross National Pro-
duct on the tax cuts? he said.
The upcoming election will be a
turning point for Anderson. uI have
not seen and election as negative as
this one since the Goldwater cam-
paign in 1964, he said. Anderson
estimated that the Republicans will
lose 25 seats in next months elec-
llln the forefront, you can expect
to see some kind of announcement
after the November election," said
Anderson. If he decides to run, he
stated he would run on a third par-
ty ticket. uI would not run as an In-
dependent," Anderson said.

Last Fall quarter DU students and Denver residents alike
were given the opportunity to hear Leonard Nimoy speak.
Nimoy, a veteran actor of stage and screen, is most famous
for his role as the half-Vulcan science officer Mr. Spock in
the old TV series Star Trek; he has recreated this role in
two recent movies, but prefers his other work, especially his
role of Vincent Van Gogh in the play Vincent. Nimoy also
gained fame as the host of In Search Of a television
show that purports to explain manis greatest mysteries, such
as psychic powers and the Loch Ness monster, and the bulk
of his speech was taken up with these mysteries. His talk
was largely a list of uI believe this" and uI believe that," and
unfortunately for both believers and skeptics, he did not
delve into his subjects but merely gave the briefest outline of
why he chose to believe these things. Nevertheless,
whenever a particularly popular subject was mentioned, the
capacity crowd would shout with encouragement.
Afterwards Nimoy conducted a question-and-answer ses-
sion. He answered Star Trek questions with resigned good
humor, reaffirmed some of his beliefs about various
mysteries, reported on his various ongoing projects, and
reminisced about Ingrid Bergman iwith whom he had ap-
peared in the Emmy-award-winning Golda, a television
special about the life of Golda Meiri. At the very end he
read some lines from one of his many books of petry, and
was given a standing ovation as he left.
Council urges activity
The All Undergraduate Student
Association lAUSAl is suddenly
facing a $17,000 deficit because ac-
tual enrollment for 1982-83 is lower
than was projected.
AUSA Senate President Robert
Lazarus said, ilThe administration

1982-83 budget of $225,000. At
the very end of fall quarter, they
told us that we would only receive
The AUSA and all student ac-
tivities under its jurisdiction are
funded by a portion of student ac-
tivity fees. Every quarter, students
pay $10 per quarter hour - up to
12 hours - in activity fees. Fewer
students mean fewer dollars, and,
consequently, a smaller budget for
AUSA. This is the second con-
secutive year that the budgets of
student organizations have been cut
because of an overestimation of
Lazarus said, liThis is the scariest
cut we've ever faced. It will be a
tremendous burden on students
and student organizations."
He said the Senate must cut its
budget as soon as possible, and will
be looking at three ways of doing
ilOur first alternative is to leave
the Board of Contingency with the
$2,400 budget it currently has. We
had planned a major increase in the
BOC budget, but now that isnlt
possible. We wont be able to fund
the Faculty and Course Evaluations
lFACEl or cover any emergencies,"
uThe second alternative is to im-
plement a 1 percent to 5 percent
cut across the boardf, he said. That
would mean that the Senate and all
the organizations it funds would
have to cut their budgets by that
Lazarus said one final alternative
the Senate will consider is
eliminating entire budgets for some
organizations. iiThey would become
non-funded organizationsfl he said.
Lazarus said he is also deeply
concerned about a recommendation
the Chancellorls Council will make
to the Board of Trustees on Friday.
liThey are going to recommend that
student fees not be increased for
1983-84. We're already being forc-
ed to operate below our planned
budget for this year? he said. ilIf
were forced to remain at that level
of funding lor an even lower level
in the case of a decrease in enroll-
mentl, there will be significantly less
programming? Lazarus said.
Lazarus said the recommendation
does not reflect the feeling of the
student body. llA poll taken last
quarter showed that 60 percent of
the students are in favor of an in-
crease in the student activity fee, if
that increase is used for increased
He also said the recommendation
may not be entirely fair, because
the committee is recommending a
9.5 percent increase in tuition, and
a 10 percent increase in housing
uWelve been fighting a tough,

Thefts Down Despite K-Book Break-In
With the recent thefts in the
Dean of Students Office, and the
break-in theft at the K-Book, it
would appear especially to those in-
volved with student organizations
that theft is on the rise at DU.
But it is actually down, with 163
reported incidents from July 82 to
January 83, compared to last
Thefts are classified as either
larceny, taking property belonging
to another; or burglary, being in a
location without proper permission
or business being there. In the case
of burglary, distinction is made be-
tween forced entry and non-forced,
and residence and nonvresidence.
The two major areas hit by theft
at DU are academic buildings,
mostly faculty and staff offices, and
items out of student motor vehicles.
Petty cash and personal items
lfrom jogging suits to radiosl are
most commonly taken from
academic buildings. Typewriters
have recently become a popular
item, at DU and elsewhere. Even
expensive music synthesizers have
been stolen. Yet for the amount of
expensive equipment at DU, its
theft is down.
Thefts in academic buildings,
usually considered larceny because
night workers have access to the
buildings, are unusually high at DU
compared with other schools where
residence theft is higher. The prob-
lem of key control could be a con-
tributing factor to the high in-
cidence. Most of this type of theft
occurs because there are a lot of
keys out, offices are left unlocked,
and typewriters arenlt secured to
HWe try to follow any lead we
have on a case, yet in larceny we
have a difficult time because therels
usually nothing to work onfl said
Steven Swain, assistant director of
DU security. Crimes are prioritized,
in trying to solve them, with top
priority given to the ones with
leads. llOur solving rates for
burglarytlarceny is 10 to 15 percent
which is comparable nationally,"
With only two or three security
officers working each night, Hthere
are things weld like to do that we
dont have the equipment or people
to do," said Swain.
Several ways to prevent these
thefts would include electronic
surveillance, adding more to the
security staff, and installing alarms.
Once alarmed, thefts in a building
usually stop. Alarms are like having
someone there all the time to
watch, if people use them properly.
Swain feels, llto give academic
freedom such as access to com-
puters in the Business Administra-
tion Building, we have to give up
ilWe need university commitment
to help solve this theft problem; we
cant do it ourselves. We need to
be. told about suspicious persons
around buildings, and for crimes to
be promptly reported," he said.
The Peoples Organization for
Women tPOWt is a newer group
on campus, founded in the spring
of 1981. Since our recognition and
subsequent funding, POW has at-
tempted to settle into the student
community and begin to work

One Who Cares
University of Denver student Steve Bocher received one of
nine $2,000 awards from KBTV, Channel 9,s ti9 Who Care"
programs and was featured in a live broadcast.
According to Ann Disborough, Executive Director of the
award program, the award is given to outstanding volunteers
servicing the Colorado community. itVolunteers are Col-
oradois most precious resource," said Disborough, ttand this
award is given to salute their efforts."
As Disborough explained, the award is in its fifth year of
existence and continues to be a very successful program.
tlThis year we received 1,600 nominations, only nine of which
could be chosen to receive the award? Disborough said.
Disborough said that in order for an individual to be eligi-
ble for the award, he or she must be voluntarily servicing the
Colorado community in some way. In addition, the in-
dividual must be a resident of Colorado and the individual
must be nominated by someone other than himself.
Service organizations throughout Colorado nominated 29
members to make up a board to decide on winners of the
award. tilt was very tough competition," said Disborough,
ttand the winners had to be favorites of all 29 board
members." She added that, tlSteve was nominated by a
fraternity brother, Kevin Lindahl, and Steveis record really
Disborough cited four volunteer activities of Bocheris that
most influenced the board. One activity was Bocherls active
participation in the founding of a new DU student
organization--the Denver University Student Resource
Volunteer Center. This organization, headed by Bocher, will
involve 50 different volunteer activities and will be open to all
Another activity was Bocheris work at Porter Memorial
Hospital, where he performs as a clown and entertainer in the
childrenls wing. Bocher also works with children from the
Denver Childrents Home and has a volunteer job as coach for
the Pioneer Jr. Hockey Association.
As a senior in college, Bocher is the youngest winner of the
award this year, with the majority of the other winners being
over age 40.
Bocher is from Chatsforth, Penn. and is expecting to
graduate from DU in June with a BSBA in management.
At DU, Bocher is a member and past treasurer of the Phi
Gamma Delta fraternity. He is vice-president of Mortar
Board and a member of several honorary societies on cam-
pus. In addition, Bocher is among those featured in uWhois
Who in American Colleges? As a freshman, Bocher served
as the school mascot, Denver Boone.
"I never expected to win," said Bocher. itWhen I received
a message that Channel 9 had called on Friday, I figured it
was because they needed some additional information. But
when I called them back on Monday, they told me that I was
one of the nine winners of the award. My reaction was total
amazement," he said.
As a winner, Bocher received $1,000 to donate to a charity
of his choice, and $1,000 to keep for himself. In addition,
Disborough said a crew from 9 News came out to his apart-
ment on the DU campus on Feb. 14 to spend the day
videotaping Bochefs activities. This was edited into a four
minute segment which was aired during a live broadcast of the
presentation of the awards from the downtown Hilton Hotel
Bocher said that he anticipates donating a large majority of
the $1,000 to the Denver Childrenis Home and the rest to the
Disabled Persons Resource Center tDPRCl at DU. Bocher
said that he became award of the DPRC through his room-
mate, who is legally blind and depends greatly on the services
that DPRC provides.
Bocher said that he would like to travel with his $1,000, but
with graduation coming up and all of his other activities, he

Order of Omega Questioned
In October four sorority women
charged the Order of Omega, an
honorary recognizing members of
the Greek system, with sexual
discrimination. According to the
Clarion Man. 20, 1983l, the
Order of Omega has not had any
female members since it began at
DU in the early 705.
The Order of Omega began as a
national organization, with local col-
lege chapters, that recognized
fraternity men for their contributions
to the Greek system. The Order
became co-ed in 1977, but many
local chapters still exclude women
from their ranks. DUls chapter of
the Order of Omega is a recognized
student organization, thought it
does not receive funds from the
AUSA Senate. Professor Terry Toy
of the Geography department ad-
vises the Orders DU chapter.
The four women who brought
the charge - Karen Micek of Delta
Zeta, Lynn Taylor of Gamma Phi
Beta and Laura Fox and Ann
Sedgwick of Alpha Gamma Delta
also filed a formal complaint of
discrimination against the Order.
In a letter to Dean of Students
Bob Burrell, the four women stated
that, liThe current organization is
violating the Equal Protection Law
and the Due Process Code of the
Constitution by not including
women in the selection of its
members." They also charged that,

New Magazine for DU
Furthermore is the monthly

readers on vacation with the Go-

dent. Furthermore has ridden the
wave of American dance music and
questioned just how plausible a
humanities degree is todayft
According to Brian Kitts, co-
editor of Furthermore, the
editorial staff of the magazine tries
to think of stories that are different.
He recognizes the fact that the au-

However, in the magazine there is

Two weeks later, the AUSA
Senate formally charged the Order

to arrange a meeting between Jeff

chapter, and the four women who
filed the discrimination complaint.
AUSA president Robert Lazarus
and several other Senate members,
as well as representatives from the
Dean of Students office, agreed to
attend the meeting.

meeting, held on January 21, pro-
duced tlan assurance from the
Order of Omega to the members at

made to allow women to be full-
Burrell said that he would en-
force the meetings agreement:

day of classes of the Winter
quarter, on March 9. The Order
will be automatically derecognized
by the Dean of Students office if
they dont carry out the
Lazarus was confident that the
Order would carry out the agree-
ment. ilThis year they have a very
good, strong group of people. They
have been planning a number of
philantrhopic events, so they're try-
ing to improve their image?
Lazarus commented that confron-
tations between sorority women
and local Order of Omega chapters
have occurred at colleges around
the country in recent years. ttNa-
tionally, the chapters are between
50 and 80 percent co-ed, so welre
not the first or last to see this."
Burrell added, liOur chapter re-

attempt to provide something
unusual. It was a product that we
thought DU students would enjoy.
So far, response has been suc-

Karen Gallegos and Carlene
Sprague along with Kitts have been
the instrumental people responsible
for the success of Furthermore.
Kitts comments that there is a
tremendous amount of work involv-
ed. The editorial staff puts a lot of
time and effort into stories as well
According to Kitts, there has
been some experimentation with
graphics in the magazine.
tiEverything for Furthermore is
planned at least a month in ad-
vance. The stories involve more
research than the stories in the

BACCHUS, the name of the
Greek god of wine, is also an
acronym for a relatively new
organization at the University of

Alcohol Consciousness Concerning
the Health of University Students?
The purpose of BACCHUS is to
promote responsible drinking by
getting in touch with students
through pamplets, speakers,
movies, workshops, and various
According to the history of BAC-
CHUS, its roots go back to 1976 at
the University of Florida, when
then-Dean Tom Goodale tnow
vice-chancellor at DUl decided to
do something about the tremen-
dous problems on campus with
alcohol and drug abuse. Goodale
organized a task force to deal with
the problem and appointed Gerar-
do Gonzalez as head of the force. It
was Gonzalez who originated the
idea of BACCHUS. The organiza-
tion was officially recognized by the
University of Florida in 1978, and,
by 1980, it had become a statewide
program. In 1981, it became a na-
tional organization based in
Washington, DC. Since then, 100
chapters have been formed.
After Goodale became vice-

Vice-Chancellor Will Gordon in
charge of establishing one. Meetings
began in the fall of 181 and DU of-
ficially became the 50th chatper of
BACCHUS on Jan. 1, 1982.
According to Kate Walker, presi-
dent of DUls chapter of BAC-
CHUS, the organization here has
run into problems because students
have the wrong idea about BAC-
CHUS. tlThe minute they hear the
word talcoholf students close their
minds and ears, and wont listen.
were not asking people not to
drink--just to say no when they
want to say no, and to be responsi-
ble when they do drink? said
Walker says that much of what
BACCHUS does is inform people
about the physiological effects of
alcohol and what can happen when
people dont drink responsibly.
BACCHUS also tries to alleviate
some of the fallacies about drinking.
ttlt's surprising the amount of peo-
ple that aren't aware of the real ef-
fects of alcohol and the amount of
fallacies they believe? Walker said.
She added that on campuses where
BACCHUS has been well establish-
ed, the results have been highly
musical instruments, and this group
dressed in red and gold shirts, with
enthusiasm, music, and spirit began
appearing at hockey and basketball
games as the DU Pep Band. The
group has reached 25 members
and is still growing with an average
of 20 in attendance at hockey
games, and 10 at basketball games.
One reason for starting a Pep
Band was to raise school spirit
through making noise and playing
recognizable songs. The bands
favorite songs this year included
ltFamef thockyXl ttRock Around
the Clock," and thagnificent
Seven.H Especially since the
cheerleaders werenlt at all the
hockey games, the crowd needed
to be unified in cheering.
The reaction of students was slow
at first. HBut the excitement is
building and snowballing - theylre
seeing us at games and joiningf,
said Bauer. Bauer cites several
ways students can help: by joining
the band, by joining in cheers, and
by supporting fundraisers and giving
the band encouragement.
According to Nord, the Dean of
Students personnel have been
helpful as has the athletic depart-
ment, but continued support is

it just makes it all worth it? said
The Pep Band's goals this year
have been to enlarge membership,
especially freshment just out of high
school bands; to obtain equipment
such as music and practice rooms;
to gain AUSA recognition; to affect
the audience; and to make Pep
Band a continuous tradition at DU.
Nord feels, Hsometimes its hard
to get people committed to
something thatls not an established
group, yet we've become an
established group because our peo-
ple are hard workers."
ltThe people in the band this year
have really shown dedication and
have done their part, and so it has
all come together and sounds
goodfl said Bauer.

questioning its essential worth.
Arguments Hopwood heard from
AUSA against publishing FACE were
that it was not being used by the
students, that it was statistically

to the time evaluations were givenl,
and that it was costly the way it was
done inewspaper forml.

especially off-campus students, go
get information about professors and
classes that they wouldnt normally
have the same access to as dorm
residents would? Oser ancl Hop-
wood planned to make FACE more
objective and confidential by using a
runner system of students to deliver
and collect the evaluation forms.
Oser and Hopwood also wanted to
reinstate ilFACE Focusfl an article

publication. liBut," says Hopwood,
iilt didnit matter to Senate; they were
worried about cost." Although Hop-
wood feels a $1,600.00 printout can
be done, ila reliable, good publica-
tion would be impossible on

On January 25, 1983, Pi Kappa
Phi was chartered by the Inter-
Fraternity Council iIFCl as an of-
ficial colony on the DU campus.
The group of 21 active pledges is
a iismorgasboard of people, which
creates a good group interested in
many different ideals and lifestyles?
according to member Robert
Lazarus. Being diverse allows for
individuals who werenlt comfortable
with fraternities which represent just
one ideal, to get involved with men
who represent many different areas.
The DU colony is working toward
receiving their national chapter by
attaining certain characteristics such
as a membership of 30, financial
security, contributing a certain
amount of money to the national
philanthtophy, PUSH iPlay Units
for the Severely Handicappedl, as
well as tasks of social involvement,
recruiting and member education,
and writing bylaws.
It was Clay Edmonds, from the
Pi Kappa Phi national based in
South Carolina, who came to DU
and got a group of men together
who were interested in starting a
new type of fraternity last fall. Pi
Kappa Phi is the fastest growing
fraternity in the nation as far as the
number of chapters. Most chapters
are in the south and east and they
wanted one in the west. They
chose DU because they had con-
tacts with and respect for DU ad-
Senior Robert Lazarus cites the
difficulty in starting a fraternity as
pulling together men from different
areas, understanding what each
wants and achieving it.
Yet success was reflected in he
unanimous colonization by IFC.
iiThe other fratenities have been
wonderful, some just couldnt do
enough for us? said Lazarus, iisuch
a positive response comes from the
idea of Greek images in wanting to
show strength of the Greek system
and support for one another."
Future goals of the Pi Kappa Phi
colony include getting the national
chapter, to get more involved in
PUSH, working with the Disabled
Persons Resource Center-reading
for the blind, increasing awareness
and getting members who are in-
terested in what Pi Kappa Phi is
about, the right kind of member
with something different to offer.
iil am fortunate to have the op-
portunity to develop the ideals of a
fraternity which has allowed me to
make new friendships and help
create another alternative to a fine
system," said Lazarus.
1983 Winter Carnival Successful
The 1983 Winter Carnival was a
big success for the second year in a
row. This was the 23rd year the
event has taken place; however,
the past few years were affected by
apathy and a lack of snow. That
trend has changed, as'could be
seen by the approximately 1000
students, faculty, and staff who
showed up January 28-30 at
Tickets were sold in November
and January for a total of 474 beds
reserved. Two buses were filled and
560 three-day lift tickets were sold.
The extra lift tickets over the
number of beds reserved were
bought by students who made other
accomodations arrangements and
ttcrashers . "
The Winter Carnival committee
worked hard to make sure a wide
variety of people attended. Faculty
and administration were encourag-
ed to participate in the event.
Board of Trustees members could
be found joining students in the
planned activities. tBill Kurtz, chair-
man of the Board of Trustees, par-
ticipated in the open division of the
ski race, coming in third placet.
Fridays events included a snow
scupture contest at the base of the
mountain. That night a torchlight
parade of 70 skiers came down the
mountain. Saturdays events began
with a barbecue at the base, follow-
ed by a Nastar-type race. The
evening closed with a party 'at the
ski school; the popular band Sierra
was featured. Bud Light co-
sponsored the party. Sundays

ment with 10 contestants.

According to David Whit-

four years ago that they would
have to relocate because the
University had plans for the
property. Although no date was
specified, the fraternity decid-
ed that it would be less expen-
sive to relocate as soon as
possible. The new image of the
fraternity and the morale of its
members were also considered.
The main drawback to the
move was the increase in rent
to the fraternity. The Dome Carl Nielsen
cost ATO $10,000 a year in
rent, whereas the new house's
rent increased to $18,000 a year

This year the Chorale performed
its first Christmas concert in many
years, which it would like to see
become a tradition. Through dona-

The Rude Mechanicals, an
adaptation of Shakespearels A
Midsummer Nightls Dream,
brought Shakespeare to the
Children,s Theatre at the University
of Denver. A tale of some irude
mechanicals' or workmen who pro-
duce a play in order that one of
their number, Peter Quince lGary
Carnesl can stay in Athens. While
rehearsing the play in a wood
which surrounds Athens, the group
is met by a sprite, Robin
Goodfellow or iPuckl lDawn Anne
Luebbersl who mischievously
changes Bottom lHarry Wintersl,
the lead in the mechanicals play,
into a man with an assls head.
Wandering alone Bottom meets
Hippolta lRebecca Boundsl who
has run away from a pre-arranged
marriage to the Duke Thesus of
Athens lRobert Russelll and under
the spell of a potion provided by
Puck falls in love with Bottom.
To provide a sense of magic, an
original music score developed by
Doug Clark was sprinkled in when
Puck appeared. The dance-like
movement by Puck also presented
a spirit of magic and fantasy. The
moving scenery also gave a touch
of fun. From the columns of Athens
to the tall, fanciful flowers and trees
ldesigned by Lewis Crickardl, the
play began to take on a dreamlike
quality. The clowning of the
mechanicals also added to the
sense of dream.
In the sense of capturing a
mood, The Rude Mechanicals
succeeded. As a childrenls play the
actors sometines played to the au-
dience rather than allowing the
children to find the fun themselves.
However, the play succeeded in
producing a sense of fun.
Exit The King
Complete with a noble monarch,
evil queen and five foot python,

reminiscent of a twisted, darkly
humorous fairy tale.
Directed by graduate student
Peggy Sahughnessy, the play deals
with love, loyalty and above all
manis need to cope with his mor-
Michael Tatlock as King Berenger
l convincingly portrayed the decay
of a once-powerful ruler suddenly
forced to accept death. With her
weepy, bon-bon gobbling brand of
sexuality, Kim Dorr as Berengerls
beloved Queen Marie, added
humor and pathos to much of the
productions action. The Guard,
played with wide-eyed whimsy by
Erik Bien, and Juliette, the prac-
tical, slightly martyred chambermaid
played by Chris Zola-Moreno, pro-
vided texture and comic relief to
numerous scenes. With a satyr-like
beard and an air of crafty
malevolence, Robert Boehler as the
Doctor operated as the perfect foil
to the pivotal presence of Melanie
Throckmorton as Queen
Garbed in glittering green and
black, the bulk of Damien the
python draped around her neck,
Throckmorton bore a strong
resemblance to the wicked queen in
Walt Disney's Snow White. The
power and depth of her perfor-
mance created a memorable charc-
ter: at once evil and empathetic,
strong-willed and sensual.

costumes designed by David Mc-
Carl and abstract lichess boardll-like
set designed by Richard Zabel
heightened the plays surrealistic

In spite of slightly uneven acting
performances and an occasional
lack of pacing, DUls first Winter
Quarter production, Henrik Ibsenls
Hedda Gabler, achieved
believability and polish.
Courtney-Anne Doody played
her role as Hedda with cat-like
grace and sensuality, successfully
off-setting the socially conforming
aspects of the other characters.
Paula McCanless Wenger as Mrs.
Elvsted gave an equally superior
performance. Wengerls develop-
ment from a weak, vascillating
female to a woman of strength and
purpose does justice to the com-
plexity of Ibsenls characters and
adds depth to her scenes with Hed-
da -- some of the best in the play.
Jon Meyers as Eilert Loevborg aptly
portrayed the romantic, brooding
figure who falls prey to Heddals
Fortunately, the characterizations
of Helena and Bertram resolve the
problem. Helena, with her consis-
tant ability to spring up with an in-
telligent response to her problem,
convinces the audience of her right
to love Bertram. She also powers
the production with energy and her
ability to convince the audience.
One, however, sees at times a
caricature. Whether due to director

tion for the University of Denverl or
actress Amy Frazier is uncertain.
The rest of the cast at times
paralleled this burlesque-type ac-
All's Well That End's Well,
therefore, is saved by the presence

also convincing. Debra Brannon as

ed to the productions quality.
Over 500 prospective students were contacted by

wanted additional information about DU. The idea for
the telethon was conceived byJ ulia Nord in response to

The University of Denver Pro-
grams Board has had a very suc-
cessul year according to Jeff Upton,
Director of Speakers for DUPB.
iiWe have never had such suc-
cessful events? said Upton.
He attributed the movies program
as one of the biggest successes that
DUPB has sponsored this year.
DUPB has brought in such movies
as Chariots of Fire, On Golden
Pond, The World According to
Garp, and Arthur. This was the
first year that DUPB charged for
movies and this was justified
because of the addition of a new
sound system. This committee was
chaired by Jeff Bailey.
Upton credited the speakers com-
mittee, which he chaired, as a good
accomplishment. The committee
brought in such speakers as come-
dian Garrett Morris, Leonard
Nimoy and John Anderson. These
speakers were very well received.
The culture program directed by
Peggy Deems sponsored a Jazz
Benefit for the children of two law
students who were killed in a New
Mexico balloon accident earlier this

The publicity committee made
some mistakes earlier in the year,
but Upton attrivutes these to lessons
learned, and have been rectified.
There were many people respon-
sible for the successful programming
that DUPB provides. Upton feels
that DUPB has been so successful
largely because it is completely
student-run and the excellent spon-
sorship of Ron Laffite.
DUPB had this year as officers:
President Scott Meikljohn, and Vice
President Vivian Miledsky. The
concert committee was directed by
Steve Selleck and Derek
Rauchenberger. Carla Jo Dupriest
directed the publicity committee
while Homecoming was directed by
Diane Baugan. Finally, Render

Probably the most publicity
DUPB received this year was the
loss of $15,000 as a result of the
Little River Band concert during
Homecoming. However, Upton at-
tributes this event as successful llin
fact that it was the first concert ever
attempted by DUPB, although it
was a failure financially. Our biggest
problem was going against Billy
Joel." Billy Joelis concert was play-
ing at the same time.
The Little River Band concert
was a big setback, according to Up-
ton largely because of Feylinets hin-
drance. tFeyline is the concert pro-
moter in-Denverl ttBut it did show
promoters across the country that
DU does treat groups for concerts
well," said Upton. The fact that DU
now has an established reputation
as a concert promoter is enough to
qualify the concert as a successful
event. As a result of this and other
events, DUPB will not be doing
shows on their own judgement but
will rather seek other opinions and
will try to present programs with
private investments. The Sammy
Hagar concert in March is being of-
fered in conjunction with Feyline.
According to Upton it is a uvirtually
no risk concert. Feyline will do the
booking, set the ticket price, the
number of tickets that will be sold,

Thoughts on Leadership
by Julia Nord
When asked to write an essay for the K-Book, I
asked, "Why me? Why would anyone think me
any more qualified or my experiences any more
gothy of being a part of our University's year-
The answer, given plainly, was that I was a 'student
leader,' and something that student leaders do is write
essays for the yearbook. Welly alright then, I'll write some
moving piece about the past and future of the University
of Denver, and everythin will be hunky-dory.
But it didnt work out t at way; I kept coming back to
my thoughts on leadership and on how the term 'student
leader' is so often misused. There are team leaders and
corporate leaders and social leaders, but to be designated
a student leader, a guider and director of those seeking
and cultivating knowledge; that, I would argue is a
recognition and a responsibility not to be taken lightly.
As I pondered further along this line, I began to con-
template what it is which defines a student leader. It isn't
someone who merely talks about leadership as if that will
transform him into one. It isnlt someone who wants the
utmost recognition for the smallest amount of effort. A stu-
dent leader must be someone who delights in working
hard on something which concerns them out of a sheer
sense of commitment and obligation to do something well
and to do it right. He must desire the feeling of ac-
complishment over the feeling of acknowledgement. The
true leaders are the ones who wouldn't think twice about
staying up until two in the morning studying because the
rest of their day had been filled with meetings or discus-
sions, or with writing letters or articles or editorials, or
with a three hour talk with a friend who needed their
help. Leaders are the ones who want everything they are
involved with to be an unqualified success, regardless of
its size or imEortance. They will push and strive incessant-
l to insuret at what they do succeeds and rospers, and
they will encourage others to do the same. Iipthis a correct
definition of a leader, DU is very, very fortunate to have a
number of fine ones. I am proud to know that some peo-
ple place me in this category.
As I mentioned earlier, my original intentions werenit
necessarily to write an essa on leadership. I just wanted
to give some of my personarthoughts on why people care
or why they should, and to recognize the man special
people who make this university what it is. Peop e I have
come to know and love and who care so very much that
the University of Denver remain a quality institution that
offers only quality programs, and which sends quality
graduates out into the world. I care very deeply for all of
the people who have made my ex erience here one I will
long cherish, and it will not be wit ease that I leave here.
And yet, though I certainly do not enjoy the thought of
leaving a place which has meant so much to me, I am con-
fident that the people still here will do a much better job
than I. I do hope, though, that you caution yourselves to
realize the importance of your positions as lleaders' of
students, and that you appreciate what such a osition
can teach you. Guard the privilege jealous y, and
remember that the most important aspect of any leader is
a caring and thoughtful heart.
by Alexandria Morel
The University of Denver is many thin s to many
people. To some, it is a school that is c ose to the
slopes. Indeed, this has traditionally been a selling
point for the University.
To others, it is an institution of learning, a step toward a
Challenging and high-paying career. To still others, it is a
four-year shelter from the real world. To the student who
takes the time to be involved in campus activities, the
University becomes a most enriching experience to be
remembered and drawn upon for the rest of one's life.
Campus organizations provide the student with many
things. First, there is leadership experience. There are some
aspects of leadership that cannot be learned in a Classroom.
These are things that require hands on experience. An
organization is a model of society as a whole. Through cam-
pus involvement, a student can prepare himself or herself
while developing the leadership skills necessary for a suc-
cessful future. These skills are essential for anyone planning
on working with people in any capacity.
The decision-making process is also an important part of
leadership. Makin decisions and running an efficient
organization enabTes a student to meet any Challenge
presented to him or her. Businesses often require leadership
experience in people they consider for positions.
There is also a social aspect to campus involvement. It's a
great way to meet people. Incoming freshmen, transfer
students and others can make new friends quickly in a group
where people already share one thing in common: the
organization. Already they have something to talk about; a
basis for friendship. Cam us organizations can also be an
outlet for an overworke student or a chance to express
Self-satisfaction is another positive result of campus in-
volvement. While it is important to acquire satisfaction from
onels rades and schoolwork, it is also important to receive
rewar s from other areas of college life. For example, it's
great to see a quiet friend become more outspoken and con-
ident or plan an event and watch it come to fruition.
For some, campus involvement has meant involvement in
the Greek system. The Greek system has provided many
students with the chance to develop the above-mentioned
Characteristics. Through this involvement collegiates grow to
know themselves and the people with whom they work bet-
Greek life has provided the opportunity for personal
development and growth to a myriad of outstanding citizens.
Individuals such as Margaret Chase Smith, Nobel Prize-
winning author Pearl Buck, Sylvia Porter, Edith Head, Dr.
Joyce brothers, Jane Paule ,Marlo Thomas, Walter Cronkite,
Robert Redford, Jack Nic Iaus, Dean Rusk, and Neil Arm-
strong are lifetime members of Greek organizations.
Many Presidents of the United States have also benefitted
from membership in the Creek System. They include James
Polk, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Grover ca" Nidsen
Clevelandy Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, Teddy
Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin

The following essay is a summary of the first
two years I have experienced as a DU
It was in Atlanta, my home during high school, that I
learned to appreciate being born Black. In Atlanta, I was
surrounded with many successful Blacks who had created
a city where Blacks headed, operated and owned the city.
I learned the history and struggles of Black Americans and
began to realize I was a member of a determined and suc-
cessful people. Because of this new awareness, I aimed at
Januar 2, 1981: the happiest day of my life. I received
on this ay a letter of acceptance from t e University of
Denver dated Dec. 31, 1980.
I would call DU's toll free number and speak to the ad-
missions counselor assigned to the southeast; I con-
sidered this counselor to be directly responsible for my
comin to DU. DU was not cheap, but extremely expen-
sive. I ad no scholarships. In April, I pushed a panic but-
ton and accepted the University of Georgia. The day after
I mailed the U.G. an acceptance letter, I began to have se-
cond thoughts. I called DU to inquire about financial aid.
My questions were not answered completely; however,
the response caused me to have sleepless nights.
Whenever I awoke I knew I had to go to DU, it was just
right. A series of roblems arose afterward.
Firsty I neede a $100.00 deposit which would be
credited to my first quarter bill. I had $25 which was
refunded from the University of Georgia. I raised $25 from
my pastor, and $50 from a former teacher. I sent in the ac-
ceptance letter with the $100 deposit. A week later DU
sent me a financial acket which stated that all I needed
was $500,000. I gra uated from high school in June of 81.
During the summer of '81 I worked as a day counselor at
the church camp. This was an exciting period in my life.
In August I purchased my plane ticket for the September
flight. In September I arrived in Denver for the first time
on my own. I was thrilled. I was met at the airport by an
Undergraduate Alumni Association member, who
brought me to my present home on the DU campus, in
J-Mac, thus beginning my DU experience.
The first two weeks at the University of Denver were
spent rather sadly for me. I had always wanted a brother,
and I had hoped that my college roommate would serve
as the brother I never had; however, for the first two
weeks I was without a roommate. I involved myself in the
Student Union Coordinating Committee and the Educa-
tional Opportunity Program. The meeting of other
students was refreshing.
The second week I was assigned a roommate tnot one
who was the same age or major as myselfl. He was a very
cordial person, who was a senior majoring in physics and
math. We shared few if any similarities. I sought a new
roommate, one who would share some things in common
with me, such as being a freshman.
Second quarter provided me with the opportunity to
change roommates. With this, I became part of the DU
crowd. I made many friends, became involved in many
campus-wide activities. My new roommate helped me to
overcome some deep-rooted personal problems I had left
unresolved, such as trusting others, sharin y and over-
comin the insecurity I felt. He became t e brother I
never ad. We fought, played, shared, and in the end,
trusted. He was my first true friend since fifth grade.
However, I out rew him as a roommate, but I hope our
friendship lasts orever.
During my personal struggles I had many academic
struggles also. Freshman year Fall Quarter was by far my
best quarter. As I became more involved in campus ac-
tivites, I studied less. In Winter Quarter, I was selected to
serve on the election commission, the Special Events
Director for DUPB and EOP Board of Directors. Also, I
was involved in CARE and the CR's - winning a state posi-
tion in Sprin Quarter.
When my Erst year ended, I was met with a financial aid
cut and a low GPA. Summer of 82 was a fun time for me. I
worked at Six Flags over Georgia. I went to work to pay off
my Spring Quarter financial debt. However, I spent the
money as fast as I made it. Luckily for me, my dad agreed
to pay off the debt. With the debt paid, I registered for fall
classes. I assumed all my problems were over; however,
they were just starting or continuing. The three I
registered for were advanced level history courses. I pass-
ed one, and failed the others, I have 'ust completed se-
cond quarter, my grades are rising, and my activities have
been limited. Things appear to be improved, at least for
Much has happened to me since my arrival on the DU
campus and even more will occur during my enrollment.
However, the first two years at DU have been the best and
worst two years of my life. I am lad I came to DU. I know
now I could not leave it wil ingly. I urge all college
students to allow their college years to be more than years
of educational advancement, but to allow the years to be
of personal growth and fulfillment.
In closing, I challenge DU students to avail themselves
of the many opportunities DU possesses. Together, the
students and faculty form a unique bond that allows for a
good working relationship. DU is a school on the go, and
so am I. The struggle of survival through the DU ex-
The College Years
by Glenn Slocum
The dormitories, the classrooms, the library.
How many hours we've spent In these places. Is
it possible that someday we will look back on all
of those hours, days, months, and years and
think happy thoughts?
Is it possible that someday we will think back and
somehow appreciate that extremel tough professor?
None of this seems possible, but we 5 ould all be realistic
and admit to ourselves right now that we will.
It's hard to believe, but the college years are to be some
of the best of our lives. Think of the flexibility that we
have. Sure, we're tied down to our classes but as far as
everything else goes, we can pretty much call our own
shots. We have control of our lives just like we will in the
We are meeting new people and spending time with old
friends. These are people that well remember and
hopefully keep in' touch with the rest of our lives.
The college years give us an opportunity to search for
our futures. We have the opportunity to extend ourselves,
seek out the fulfillment of our hopes and dreams. These
are the years when we are making decisions that will af-
fect us for a long time to come. What career choices will
we make? We are facing an average career length of forty-
five years. This is quite a long time. For most of us this is
2500A, of our lives.
For those people that are living away from home for the
first time, this is a new and at time scary experience. We
learn to appreciate the little things in life. We are forced to
scrape by each month with a given alotment of money.
We learn to take care of ourselves. What more could we
ask of an institution of higher education. Yes, that Univer-
sit that we too often shun is giving us the experience that
wi l shape our futures. This time of commitment, commit-
ment to a course of study, this ultimate demonstration of
discipline, is being experienced by us the students of the
University of Denver at this time in our lives. Sometimes it
is hard to see beyond the campus because it is such a
microcosm of life, for us. However, the things that we are
putting up with are very similar to those situations that we
will face in the years to come.
These years are our emotional, intellectual, and
philosophical renaissance periods. We are not merely
numbers in the shuffle of politics. We are the leaders and
followers of tomorrow. We are the future, good or bad.
We are the politicians, doctors, lawyers, engineers, and
homemakers of tomorrow. We, the students of today are
preparing for this future; a future in a world we have the
vary tangible ability to affect; a world that we can mold.
All of these incredible things are happening now, to us
at the University of Denver. We have chosen to come
here to learn; to be stimulated intellectually and socially
by the students of yesterday and today. We are absorbing
knowledge from the professors, teaching assistants and
advisors. We have chosen to take this direction.
Finally as we travel through these critically important
years, the ability to appreciate may be one of our greatest
assets next to the ability to survive. As we complain from
day to day about the pressures, we can realize that these
years, "the college years," are some of the most impor-
tant in our lives.
The Freshman Experience
by Amy Frazier
Were l to describe my freshman year thus far in
one word, I would use the word "relationship."
I come from a very good home, where communication
and personal freedom are stressed, yet I nonetheless par-
ticipated fully in the " et-me-out-of-this-place" eighteenth
summer, where high 5 iool is already a world behind, and
college looms on the horizon, always--it seems--just out of
reach. M family, as it turned outy was also count-
ing the ays until I left, punctuating them with such
endearments as I'Get the hell to college, dammitli' Obvious-
ly, there was to be no affection lost on my big leap out 0fthe
nest--and for good reason; our family is always your famil --
and with them you always have a home. Friendships--on the
other hand--come, and friendships go; and this is where I
had my first big relationship struggle. There are no blood ties
to hold most friends together, and often the strength of the
relationship is in direct proportion to the proximity. To me,
this change of location presented a good test of the friend-
ship; to one or two of my friends it was a very big threat. Dur-
ing my first quarter, as the campus slid into the gold and red
of an autumn wardrobe, and crabapples peppered the
sidewalks around Mary Reed, the single source of frustration-
-the one fly in the ointment--was wondering how the hell to
deal with these relationships. I loved being on my own, and
the deep affection I felt toward home was without the pain of
homesickness. As this carried over into all previous relation-
ships, 1 adopted an llm-doing-fine-here-by-myself-and-when-
which ended up to be the source of great pain to some very
close people. And thus came Relationship Lession 4H: You
are who you are largely because of who youive shared your
life with; and to cut them off from new changes in you is a
very cruel divorce, because friendships are a two-way street
where responsibility and enjoyment are inseparable.
With this big new change came new people. A lot of new
People. Dorms, classes, parties--and never an old face. It was
ike being thrown in head-first. But as the water cleared and
all of these people began to bob t0 the surface, I found that
we were grouped, almost as if by magic, into collections with
some sort of common denominator. For some, the common
denominator was a sport, a type of music, two or three
Creek letters, a favorite drug tto each his own...I, or an in-
terest. My common denominator was theatre, and the most
fascinating thing to me about this grouping process was that
it happened so naturally. I was taking no theatre courses, yet
a. hmuM-qu "MW.
, gm" U
I couldn't seem to get away from these people.
Lesson 142: You belong. Somewhere. Somewhere there is a
group of people who share the same basic components--
people with whom you fit like the piece of a puzzle. And if
you don't have the sense--or the guts--to recognize who
these people are, and to seek them out, well-that doesnit
really matter, because they'll find you.
I suppose that anyone of even average intelli ence could
deduce that where there are casual relations ips of this
common-denominator type, there is also the potential for
the more serious sort of interaction commonl associated
with the word l'relationship." Welly I happeneclto miss this
point, and consequently was a little surprised to see myself
interacting in serious relationships. These are situations
when the word I'friendH is found in all of its ramifications;
where being appreciated means being needed, and being
needed means being responsible for a part of a person--and
that is no light bundle. It means forkin over a little bit of this
new-found independence in favor oFsomeone else. It's a
hard thing to do--but the deep, interpersonal sharing that all
of this common-denominator stuff leans toward is impossible
without this. Lesson i8: Unequivocal independence is an
island; it's boring, it's seIf-indulgent, and it excludes a fun-
damental human truth: You need to need.
As much as the common-denominator relationship needs
to be nurtured in order to grow the relationship which
doesn't have this bond needs it even more. So youlve found
your r0up--your niche--and things are going fine; but that's
not al colle e is. College--l have found--is also peo le whom
you don't li e--whom you canit stand. It's the gir in Psych
who thinks she's more qualified to teach than the prof is; it's
the cafeteria workers who won't let you carry your bagel out
of the cafeteria despite the fact it's half-eaten and you're late
for class; it's the four-speaker party-ers directly above you;
it's the roommate. The latter was my stumbling point, and if
lim going to be realistic in m discussion of relationships I
shouldn't ignore the relationship which my roommate and I
managed to massacre. Living with someone in these cracker-
box conditions is not always easy--but it's possible. Unfor-
tunately, the one thing which would make it easy isnit
guaranteed; you're not promised a common-denominator.
You either make it on the strength of your willingness to try,
or you give up and fork over two hundred dollars for a single.
With my roommate and I, the willingness to try ran out after
one quarter; now we're both two hundred dollars poorer,
but a lot happier. I don't know what Lesson JIM is, because I
think I failed, but it would probably be something along the
line of: sometimes you just can't hack it, and thereis nothing
wrong with that.
Finally, the strongest and most important relationship live
found during my freshman year is that of a person to himself.
It's the relationship between who you were and who you
want to be, the product of which is who you are now. All
else stems from this. Old habits, old ways, old thoughts
speak with the powerful voice of familiarity--and that's good,
because experience is a relentless teacher. When this is add-
ed to the more melodious voice of dreams and personal
goals, however, it's time to make choices. Where is the
meeting point between old and new? Do the rules you lived
by at home really matter? Should they? Do you see your
goals as serious plans, or are they expectation escape-routes?
What are they based on? Where will they go? Its a time of
give and take, where there really are no wrong decisions--
just some very difficult ones. And it all hangs on this internal
relationship, because through this comes the truth of all
other relationships. You cant give in honesty unless you
know what youire giving. Lesson 15 is the hardest lesson--
and the best. Don't miss it--itis here now; the best part of the

AUSA senators have been work-

that has been ignored for far too
long," said AUSA Senator Cole
Chariman Wist and his Academic
Affairs Committee have taken the
advising problem from an initial
complaint voiced by Mortar Board
on behalf of students and have pro-
posed several solutions. Although a
proposal made by Professor Kathy
Van Giffen which AUSA fully en-
dorsed, for an academic advising
center was rejected by administra-
tion, they admitted that advising at
DU was lacking. After receiving
such a response from administra-
tion, Wist went to Vice-Chancellor
of Academic Affairs, Irving Weiner
asking if there was any active role
for Senate in structuring and plan-
ning of advising solutions. The
answer was that it was in the hands
of the departments and academic
deans, and there was not much that
the Senate could do.
But Wist went further in going to

department who had been ap-
pointed by Dean Purcell to take the
role of overseeing advising in the

posed by Wistis committee was the
requiring of mandatory advising in

done in the College of Business.

A Look at CWC - DU,s Ne$zest D
CWC In Transition
In walking about the Colorado Womenls College cam-
pus, one can see it is not dead, but has great potential for
resurrection through the tiCWC Transition," DU,s present
In the acquisition of CWC, the University of Denver
made two commitments: that the facilities be used for pur-
poses relating to higher education, and that they would
honor and put forth their best effort to continue the com-
mitment to womenls education.
Three programs are in the process of being brought to
the CWC campus: the Law School, the Lamont School
of Music and a Womenls Education program tencompass-
ing the Weekend College instituted by CWC in 1980l.
Karen Stonley is presently working at CWC in ad-
ministration and as special assistant to the Chancellor
regarding the transition. She had worked in Student Af-
fairs at CWC C75 to y77l and at DU C77 to l79l and since
has always been interested in both schools with the com-
bination of them being especially interesting to her.
The transition has centered around three things: first,
the merging of recbrds, practices and operations of a
94-year-old institution with DU; second, administration of
the operations that remain on the CWC campus tfor ex-
ample, a conference and catering operation to make pre-
sent revenue from buildingsl; and third, serving as a coor-
dination point for all the planning between different
groups that will be on the campus in the future.
The ground was broken in late 82 and construction
began on the new Lowell Thomas Law building which will
encompass ustate of the arts technology,, in design and a
computer system. Treat Hall is proposed for renovation
and eventual occupation by law firms to provide access

Regarding the music school transition, acoustical
renovation to accomodate music performance is taking
place in the Houston Fine Arts building. Pullman Hall,
formerly a dormitory, is being renovated to accomodate
music practice rooms.
In terms of the womenTs program, two things are occur-
ring. The Weekend College program is being strengthen-
ed with the College of Business designing a new degree
format and moving toward implementation of new
degrees possibly in computer technology. Two task forces
worked to address the academic issues involved in
womenls education and several aspects of student ser-
Before the acquisition by DU, two types of academic
programs were operating at CWC, the Weekend College
with about 130 students enrolled and the traditional pro-
gram with an even smaller number enrolled. Of the tradi-
tional students, many went to other universities, but
several chose to become part of DU.
Carolyn Bain was one who made the transition. ltWhen
the DU acquisition took place, my first impulse was to
transfer to another school, then I thought therels at least a
part of CWC there still alive, and I want to be part of itfl
Bain became involved in the transition in doing research
for Stonley on traditional womenls progrms to adapt to
the CWC part of DU.
llThis transition year at the Colorado Womenis College
campus has focused on assessment, feasibility testing,
identification and coordination of the program building
blocks on which we will build a unique, dynamic center to
higher education in the country? Stonley said. ttThrough

ed with existing traditions and foundations of the pro-

Ground is Broken as
Landmark in DU History
On the dismal, cloudy day of
Saturday, October 30, a brightly
colored tent decorated the General
Classroom Building lawn of the
University of Denver. Crews of
workers attached big bunches of
yellow balloons to the tent, set up
tables and chairs inside, and did
their best to clean up the grounds
surrounding the tent. As late after-
noon drew near, men and women
dressed in their best brought flowers
and refreshments to complete the
Preparations like this are seldom
made with such care and precision,
but the administration and student
government of the university felt
they were necessary. The ceremony
held under the tent was for the
groundbreaking of DUls new Stu-
dent Center, the construction of
which Vice-Chancellor Torn
Goodale said was hone of the most
important events in the history of
Those present at the ceremony
were Congresswoman Pat
Schroeder, DUls trustees and vice-
chancellors, the director of Colv
oradols Health Authority,
Chancellor Ross Pritchard, and
many of DUls employees, deans,
professors, students and some
parents. The planning committee
had expected more than 500 in at-
tendance; it printed 500 small
plastic shovels and pins, reading, til
Dug It." Unfortunately, perhaps
due to the cold weather, there were
at most 200 people under the tent.
Chancellor Pritchard spoke of the
importance of the building, which
he said would draw together the
northern and southern parts of the
campus, with its bridge across
Evans Avenue. He also mentioned
his excitement about going to the
landscaped lawn outside the new
center in 1984, uwhere for the first
time we will graduate in something
better than an ice arena."
Robert Lazarus, president of the
All-Undergraduate Student Associa-
tion Senate, expressed his en-
thusiasm for the new building, a
great deal of which will be funded
by students, saying that this means
uwe tstudentsl have the maturity to
make decidions and take advice
about our future?
The last speaker sat patiently on
the raised platform while the other
speeches were being delivered. He
was dressed in a long black coat
and had a bright watch chain in his
smart-looking vest. Only a bushy
grey beard kept him from looking
exactly like history professor Dr.
Allen Breck. Goodale introduced
him as ttSecond Territorial Gover-
nor John Evans, speaking in the
absence of Dr. Allen Breck."
ttEvansfl who founded the
University of Denver in 1864 tback
then calling it Colorado Seminaryl,
opened his address by saying, itln
case your grandchildren ask you
what you were doing on the day of
October the Thirtieth, 1982, you
can say you were...listening to
Governor Evans speaking on the
subject, tSuccess Has Many

animated talk to speak of the
history of educational institutions,
whose students constantly spoke of
the need for a student center where
they could gather to relax and
His talk ended with a mention of
the future of universities: uA well-
founded university lives as long as
the country in which it is founded
will live." Goodale thanked him for
the visit, wishing him well as he
returned to heaven.
A groundbreaking followed, with
Chancellor Pritchard and three
others digging the ceremonial
golden shovelfull. Goodale an-
nounced that on November 23 four
bids from contractors would be
opened and construction on the
50,000 squareafoot building would
begin. The scheduled finish of the
building is for December 1983, after
which rennovations of the present
Student Union will take place.
Dedications for the entire complex
are scheduled for July 1, 1984.

July of 1982 after having worked
as Special Assistant to the

ing to Williams her duties have re-
mained basically the same, only
the importance of the position
itself has moved up and expanded.
Williams began her work in
budgeting and planning while at
Arkansas State University, under
University President Ross Prit-
chard, now chancellor of DU. Prit-
chard saw the need for such a
position at DU and thus hired
Williams two months after his own
There is little of the university,s
goings-on that Williamsl planning
office does not know about.
Williams sees her role as a
reference center; student faculty
ratios, the number of faculty
tenured, tuition costs for any year,
you ask the question, she knows
the answer. All of these facts and
figures are at her fingertips, yet
she sees her job as an interactive
one, not with numbers and
calculators but with people.
Her role and the decisions com-
ing out of her office affect the en-
tire university community. The
mounting of new programs or the
downplaying of old ones are ex-
amples of the kind of decisions
coming out of her office. Often
times the decisions being made are
only a choice between bad and
not- so-bad, it is her hope that the

She spends much of her time in
meetings finding out what those in-
volved think and then in develop-
ing a consensus so that the
decision-making process is not so
far removed for those involved. As
Williams puts it, she keeps the glue
sticky that keeps the university
together. A personal accomplish-
ment during her first year as a
Vice-Chancellor was in the role she
played in creating a greater
understanding in the faculty about
the university,s problems so that
they can understand ithow we got
where we are and where we are go-
The survival and development
of DU as a private institution is a
battle that Williams is fighting.
Now that, as she explains, the

burden that Williams is ready for,

A different type of class was offered to sophomore and
junior honors students in the area of computing. The pro-
gram was designed for Arts and Sciences majors to learn
the basics of computin without all the mathematical con-
cepts and technical an scientific terminology.
This four-credit-hour course differed from introduction
to computing courses in that it emphasized giving a broader
understanding of the possibilities and limitations of the
The cost of this $100,000 class was finded in part by a
grant from the National Science Foundation. Sophomore
and junior students were chosen for this experimental class
because of the need to do follow-up studies on the
students' future uses of computing.
The ten member class had several professors including
Dr. William Dorn, Dr. Herb Greenberg, and Paul Myers.
Their class was presented in such a way as to give students
an understanding of the process of computing rather than
the more technical aspects of programming. Students will
come out with an understanding of what can be done with
the computer and what is involved in the process.
Construction has begun this quarter on the new Lowell
Thomas building at the University of Denverls College of
Named for famed broadcaster and DU alum Lowell
Thomas, the building will be located on the campus of the old
Colorado Womenls College, acquired by the University last
year. The Du law school will move to the CWC campus
following construction of the two and a half story building.
Expansion plans on the CWC campus call for the completion
of the Thomas building - which will house the law school -and
a renovation of library facilities. Estimated costs for both
projects is $10 million.
Facilities in the new law building are said to be attractive as
well as functional. Architects have designed the building to
use a 14th century attitude associated with lawyers and
judges. The functional part of the building includes a com-
puter center and library, 50 faculty offices, 10 classrooms and
a 600 seat auditorium.
All lecture areas, including the classrooms and auditorium
will be semi-circular in construction to encourage com-
munication between student and instructor. Another design
concept to be used puts the 600 seats in the auditorium no
more than 80 feet from the speakerls podium.
A video link-up will connect the auditorium to both the
library and the classrooms. Plans for a moot courtroom have
been approved. This will serve as both a practice and actual
The library expansion project will double the size of the
current DU law library. Constructed inside the Lowell
Thomas building, shelf space should hold 270,000 volumes.
The two story construction will house the computer center
and study rooms.
DU spokesperson Margaret Rupp said, ttThe modern con-
struction and the technical improvements will put DUls law
program on another level.
ttThe facilities themselves are not expected to attract more
students. However, with better facilities, the law program im-
provements should be obvious? Rupp continued. ilWith the
use of computers, the law program here at DU should help
students prepare for the modern legal world."
Completion date for the structure and the renovation pro-
ject is expected sometime in December, 1983.
Also included in the buildings design will be a two story,
sky-lit walkway which will run through the center of the
building. The walkway will connect the library to the
classrooms. Throughout the entire building, a three story
atrium will provide areas for informal discussion and reserve
a place for students to study in a quiet atmosphere.
The building will be constructed of beige brick to har-
monize with other structures on the CWC campus.

baseman2pitcher Rich Heggen
i286, 7-4 with a 3.55 ERAi that
will be tough to replace.
The tri-captains for this years
team are seniors Blazer McClure,
Bill Stoner and Brad Benson.
Centerfielder McClure i374, 12
home runs, 53 R8151 is a three year
letterman as is rightfielder Stoner

Youth prevailed on the 1982-83 ice hockey team. 6596 of
the team were freshmen and sophomores with twelve
freshmen and only six seniors. The Pioneers lacked maturity
at the onset of the season, resulting in an 8 game losing
streak. Losing to Wisconsin 8-4 and 8-0 was a major set-
An impressive split, however, with Minnesota, ranked
number one in the country, gave the Pioneers the con-
fidence they needed. In an exciting weekend, the icers lost
10-8 in a high scoring game oneFriday, and came back on .
Saturday playing outstanding hockey to stun Minnesota 5-4 KarenJudkins
in over-time. Coach Ralph Backstrom was pleased with his
players: iiThe team is playing good hockey, and this win
should give them some confidence for the stretch run and
the league playoffs."
The outlook for the rest of the season at press time found
the Pioneers gaining momentum to attempt a 3rd or 4th
place league finish to insure home ice for the playoffs. The
team was fortunate to schedule a game on January 26
against the United States National Hockey Team. Goal
tender Pat Tierney, who was nominated Most Valuable
Player at the Indianapolis Sports Festival could be playing for
the opposition in 1984 if he makes the Olympic team.
Two freshmen led the team in scoring at mid-season.
Dallas Gaume racked up 12 goals and 32 assists, while
17-year-old Craig Redmand had 13 goals and 18 assists. Six
seniors provided the needed consistency to the line-up: Bill
Stewart, John Liprando, Danny VIaisavljevich, Marty Stein-
ly, Andy Hilliard, and John White.
At press time the Pioneers record was 6-12-0 in the tough
WCHA League, and was in 5th place in WCHA standings.
Coming off a 21-19-3 season
and recruiting a great class of
freshman players, second-year
Coach Ralph Backstrom felt
the hockey team had enough
talent to genuinely Challenge
for the NCAA championship.
The Pioneers returned with a
solid core of players from last
year, with leading scorers Ed-
die Beers and Don Fraserbeing
the biggest absences.
As of the time of this writing,
DU had finished the regular
season with a sweep of arch-
rival Colorado College to bring
their record to 15-20. Facing a
strong Duluth tMinnesotai team
in the first round of the
playoffs, Backstrom was still
confident of his team. ttWe are
peaking now, hopefully we can
use the momentum for an

The 1982-83 Pioneer Men,s Basketball team with 7 return-
ing Iettermen and several key transfers looked to be a solid
unit to continue their 38-game home winning streak. Coach
Floyd Theard, who in his two previous seasons at DU led
the team to back-to-back 22-7 records, the best in the
schools history is optomistic, even after the loss of his top
two scorers and leading rebounder. iiLast season we started
slow with a lot of new players in the line up? said Theard.
uThis year, we have a good blend of veterans and several
top newcomers. If we can get off to a good start with early
success, we will be alright.
That is exactly what didnit happen as the Pioneers struggl-
ed to a 2-3 start. The team soon began to jell, taking 11 out
of the next 13 contests and extending the home court winn-
ing streak to 45 games. Since two of the losses have come
from larger Division I schools, DU should again be a Division
Thread brought in sophomore transfer Mark Langkamp
to fill departed Dwayne Russer center position. He
stepped in nicely, leading the team at scoring with 14 points
per game and has shown some strong rebounding. While
not an intimidator in the middle, Langkamp is very mobile
with a good touch. As 4A player of the year, he led Green
Mountain High School to the Colorado 4A title his senior
The Pioneers had their two starting forwards returning
from last season, senior Co-Captains Pete Caruso and Mike
Wilson. Though small for the front line at 6-5 and 6-3
respectively, each sccted in double figures this year. Caruso
is the power forward and is very physical leading the
Pioneers in rebounding this season with an average of 7 per
game. Wilson is more of an outside player and his great
jumping ability allows him to play tough defense.
At point guard 5-10 junior Doug Wilson directed the play
on the court and led the team in assists. He has been giving
DU constant and dependable play for three seasons and has
become very adept at running the offense. At the other
guard position 6-3 junior transfer Tom Fedro and 6-5
freshman Ty Sherbert have stepped in after Brian Correllis
graduation. Both possess a deadly outside shot and Sherbert
is tough under the boards.
Seniors Kevin Patrick and Russ Weisenburg provide depth
on the front line while Charles Lee, Greg Rhodes and Brian
Foxhaven are first off the bench to spell the guards.

The events of last year were a dream come true for the
DU womenfs gymnastics team and coach Dan Garcia, as
they captured the first-ever AIAW Division II National
Championship by a DU women,s team.
Gymnast Karen Beer,s performance at nationals thrilled
the hometown audience as she won individual lst place titles
in the all around, floor exercise, balance beam, and uneven
Beeris outstanding performance catapulted the Pioneers
into first place at nationals, defeating four-time defending
champion Centenary College.
After finishing number one in the nation in Division 11 last
year, there was a possibility the team would turn Division I
this year. Administration decided against the switch, citing
the tremendous budget a Division 1 team requires and a lack
of depth from the squad as reasons.
At press time, high hopes for this years season prevail.
This season, the Pioneers have as many as four good all-
arounders. Said Dan Garcia, flKaren Beer is the leader in all
events. Sheis a good gymnast and our most consistent team
member." Other outstanding all-arounderls this season are
sophomore Soniya Fowler, and Freshman Heidi Shantall
and Heather Earl.
uThis year weive got a very strong schedule for a Division
II school." Said Garcia, HWe get to meet a lot of Division I
teams, which is what we need to do to get the level of com-
petition our girls need."
The pioneers are meeting this challenge well, defeating
Utah State University and the University of Missouri in their
first two meets, both oif them Division I schools.
Karen Beer took first place in the all-around, which put
the Pioneers at the top of Division II and very high in Divi-

The 1982 DU soccer team made this the best season in
the teams history, with an outstanding 18-3 record.
DU ranked 13th in the final NAIA rankings, and led the
country in team offensive scoring with a 5 goal per game
DU,s sucess extended even to coach Dan Byrden , who
was elected Coach of the Year by the Rocky Mountain Inter-
collegiate Soccer League.
Although the team suffered several injuries, its perfor-
mance did not suffer in the least, as DU compiled a 14 game
winning streak. ttThis is definitely the best team Yve
coachedfsaid Byrden. ttThis year our bench really con-
tributed. It was great to see no drop in our performance with
all those injuries."
Leading the DU soccer team was Soteris Kefalas, a junior
from Cyprus. Kefalas contributed an amazing 31 goals this
season, and logged 68 points, setting 2 school records.
Kefalas, skills also earned him 2nd place in the country with
a 1.83 per game average.
Kefalas contributes much of his success to 2 time All-
American midfielder Mustapha Zidane. This year, Zidane
tied the school assist record with 19 assists, and led the
NAIA in assists with a 1.08 per game average.
The teams brilliant season ended in a 1-0 loss to Bethany

that prevented the Pioneers from going to nationals. Said

The DU ski team, once perennial
NCAA champions in the late
1960s, is being relegated to a club
sport at the conclusion of this
season. The reason for this is the
athletic departmentls philsophy that
DU should field intercollegiate
teams that can both practice and
play on the campus.
Judging from early season
results, the ski team should improve
upon last years 20th place finish.
The DU team features some of the
best American skiers. This is
because most of their top competi-
tion from other schools are
foreigners, having Europa Cup and
often World Cup and Olympic ex-
perience. In fact, coach Jim Reinig
and Barbara Standteiner, a
sophomore member of the DU
womenls ski team, have been
chosen to represent the US. in the
World University Games in Sofia,
In the first meet of the year, the
DU women beat several schools, in-
cluding defending NCAA champion

slalom finishes. Her roommates as
well as teammates, Ramsey

respectible showing which was
highlighted by Sandy Treatis fourth

highest place captured by a DU

fifth overall. Standteiner had a third
place finish in the slalom,- a race in
which she defeated three All-
Americans and a former Olympic
In the men,s competition, DU

The DU Rugby Football Club suffered a disappointing 0-6
record during their fall campaign but looked forward to a
better spring season with added experience and recruits.
However, in this sport which inspires bumperstickers such as
liRugby Players Eat Their Deadli and llGive Blood-Play
Rugby", a teamls record is not the only yardstick for success.
k team member Marc Jackson commented, uItls not if you
win or lose, but if you survive the game to have a beer after-
wards." Obviously, then, the team achieved more than a
surface check of their record would indicate.
Rookie Coach Art Walsh saw his team whitewashed by a
combined point total of 1056 in early season loses to BYU,
Steamboat Springs Rugby, Mile High Rugby and Air Force.
These teams were bigger and more experienced than the
Jokers tDUis nicknamel with the exception of Mile High
Rugby, who defeated DU 21-6, even though DU dominated
the second half with Bob Gardner and Chris Dyer accoun-
ting for the Jokers first points of the season.
Walsh, a member of the Denver Barbarians Rugby Club,
pulled DU together for two well-played games to end the
season on a high note. Against Northern Colorado, Chris
Miller scored to bring DU within two points, until late scoring
by UNC thwarted DU 126. With scoring coming from Steve
Mihalic, Nick Ault and Chris Dyer, DU led Queen City
Rugby 12-10 with five minutes remaining in the season
finale. Queen City had control of the ball near DUs goal but
a tough Joker defense held them out of the end zone. Final-
ly, as time ran out, Queen City took advantage of a 4on-2
break to score and pull ahead 14-12. After the successful
conversion, DU was handed a heartbreaking 16-12 defeat.
The Jokers chose Chris Dyer as Most Valuable Player,
Mark Harding as Top Rookie, team captain Richard Bettman
as Top Forward and Bob Gardner as Best Sportsman.
Special awards were also given to Ken Breshin for Most
Fearless Newcomer and Johnny McWilliams as Best
With an improving team, DU Rugby looked forward to a
better record against local college and club teams as well as a
Rugby Tour to Mexico City during Spring Break.
Once again the campus recreation staff enjoyed another
great year running intramurals, informal recreation and
sports clubs at DU. The staff headed by Mark Fletcher, who
hails from Detroit Tigers star Gates BrownIs hometown of
Crestline, Ohio and assisted by Mick Deluca and George
Congrave showed the DU community why their logo is
ttWeIre Good For U".
The fall intramural season was highlighted by ten events in
which participation numbered over eleven thousand. Flag
football as usual was the most popular with fifty-two teams
competing. In the menIs ttA" division it was Lambda Chi
upsetting defending champions PSB, a team composed of
varsity baseball players. The Dougers defeated Brew Crew
for division tIB" honors. In woments football, the Rough
Riders took the title over the Wailers.
In other team sports, a PKS victory over Marimba Football
Club gave them the menIs soccer championship. The co-rec
broomball final saw Good Vibrations outlast the Mountain
Men, while Lamda Chi won the Campus Fest. In ments
volleyball, SAE netted a win over the Eight Balls in the
championship as the Flaming Shots beat the Blockers in
womenIs play. In men,s three-on-three basketball, the
Operators beat the Shooting Wads in the finals of the
iiAttdivision and the iiBi, division went to i360 Gorilla Dunk'i
for their victory over K: School of Education. Slippery When
Wet defeated SAE for top honors in come Innertube Water-
polo. The Fall Weekend Softball Tournament saw the Stolies
surprise defending champions, the Mean Deviates for the
menis championship while Unmet Winners prevailed over
Lambda Chi Little Sisters in the women,s division.
The golf tournament featuring two-person teams with the
best ball counting, had the team of Shawn Neville and Tom
Kneen edge out Bryan Hinkle and Mike Battaglia for low
score. In racquetball sinbles, Roy Ruiz was the tournament
winner after he defeated J .T. Mitchell in the finals. Division
iiBitplay saw Bruce Lanfield defeat Dave Goldberg. The last
intramural sport of the quarter was the Turkey Trot, a three
mile race around the DU campus that drew forty-two entries.
Mark Weeks and Rosanna Sterne were the fastest male and

uDir Breck: A Man Who Loves His
Work," headlined a Clarion article writ-
ten about Dr. Allen duPont Breck who
has worked with the University of
Denver for the past 36 years.
Dr. Allen Breck
He cites his biggest accomplishment in life as,
IIsimply teaching, meeting minds as an act of
love? Breckls own philosophy for teaching
parallels that of an ancient philosopher who
said, Itlove is standing shoulder-to-shoulder fac-
ing. common problems." He has stood
shoulder-to-shoulder with many students in his
over three decades of teaching nearly every
course offered in the History department. IlHe
just knows so much about all of his subjects and
can talk for hours and hours? says one of his
students, Julia Nord. Breck finds teaching great
fun. He has established more than an intellec-
tual relationship but a rapport with his students,
whom he invites into his home each quarter to
see his treasures from world travel. IlHels
always wiling to help students witn anything,
not only classes, but future plans," says Nord.
Breck decided on teaching near the end of his college
career. tlAs a Senior at DU in 1936, I had firmly intended
to go to law school, but in the midst of the Depression,
the family couldnlt afford it--So I asked myself what
would I rather do than eat--and the answer was
teachingf he said.
He took all the required classes during his last year, in-
cluding two by correspondance, got a temporary cer-
tificate and became qualified to teach in the Denver
schools. ITve never been more grateful for anything in
life--I found more than a job, a vocation," he says. He
chose to teach history because he loves people.
Before coming to DU, Breck taught history and social
studies in the Denver Public Schools, from 1936 to 1942
when he, like many young men, was called to war. He
returned to Denver in 1946 to teach at the university.
IlThe Butler and Quonset huts and the Glls all arrived
together in I46? he recalls, speaking of the different look
the campus had when the university sprang to ac-
comodate all those returning seeking education through
the Gi Bill.
Breck has seen the campus in many phases of
development from helping move books into the new
Mary Reed Library for thirty cents an hour as a Senior in
1932, to taking part in the groundbreaking and dedica-
tion of the new University Student Center.
Breck, who has spent so many of his own years at DU,
has an interesting perspective for studying its history.
Illlve lived through 50 years of DUIs 120 years, so I will
use people I know," he said. He will also use oral history,
memoirs, theses, manuscripts from minutes of Board of
Trustees meetings, and early Denver newspapers. Breck
enjoys the research and writing. Commenting on his
work, III sit down after doing research and write longhand
on a yellow legal pad, I then transcribe it into type before
handing ittto a secretary. After research, the writing is
such as pleasure."
Breck wants to relate university history to US. history.
ttI hope the book will place us in historical perspective,"
he says. He also hopes the book will incite its readers to
go ahead into the future with great confidence. He feels
welve reached the end of the beginning. Breck aims to
tell the story of students, administrators and the
dedicated, earnest, thoughtful professors, Ila story of
great courage in difficult times."
In his research Breck has found much interesting infor-
mation. He has studied the highly creative papers of
John Evans, DU,S founding father, tracing his life and
career from birth to death. He finds the life of Evans in-
spiring, seeing him as a man who was always working in
higher education and cites his determination to build a
school in the west.
Breck sees several changes in the University of Denver
over the years. Since World War II it has become more
internationally known, attracting faculty from all over the
world interested in research, exploration, discovery, and
publication. It seeks to bring people in from the world and
to go out to do things in the world. He sees changes in
the attitudes of students who have returned to old values
of sobriety, courage and hard work. There exists today a
greater worry over grades since they translate into dollars
while in the 605 college was seen as a place to have fun.
Dr. Allen Breck is actively involved in his work with the
University of Denver and his love for that work shows.
Dr. Terrence Toy
If you happen to spot a rather impressive,
pipe-smoking professor on campus, distinctly
marked with a handle-bar moustache; watch
out, hels no ordinary man. Hels Associate
Professor of Geography Dr. Terrence Toy,
recipient of the 1982 Distinguished Teaching
Toy was born on August 10, 1946 in the bustling
metropolis of Sidney, Ohio, but spent most of his
youth growing up in Buffalo, New York, the liQueen
City of the Great Lakes? according to Toy. As a
young boy, Terry participated in the Boy Scouts, which
was probably when he first became aware of his in-
terest in geography. HI always found myself asking why
nature was the way it was," commented Toy.
Toy received his BA. and MA. degrees in
geography from the State University of New York and
received his PhD. from the University of Denver in
1973. When asked why he left New York for Denver,
Toy replied that iias a geographer, I was interested in
the environment. After growing up in the landscape of
New York, I was attracted to the natural environmental
advantages that Denver had to offer."
In college, Toy, like most people, took courses in
various areas. He took some sociology courses and
some psychology courses. Then, out of what Toy call-
ed a iigut interest," he took a geography course. til
guess it went back to my outdoorsy mentality," he said.
The technical content of the course reinforced his in-
terest. Not only that, but according to Toy, his first
courses in geography were taught by a superior instruc-
tor, himself a recipient of many awards.
In the three years that he has been here, Toy has
been the recipient of many awards. He has received
recognition awards from several fraternities including
Sigma Chi, Gamma Theta Epsilon, the Order of
Omega la professional fraternityl, and he is an
honorary member of Lambda Chi Alpha. He has won
an award from Student Life la former organization on
the DU campusl, and has won the Kynewisbok's
Pioneer Award. He has been the recipient of the
Outstanding Young Men of America Award and has
been recognized as Outstanding Faculty Member. In
addition, he has most recently received the Distinguish-
ed Teaching Award, an honor bestowed by the honors
committee of the University Senate. About these many
awards that decorate the walls of his tiny office, Toy
comments, "They make students feel that they are get-
ting their money's worth, so I hang them on the wallf,
Professor Toy,s unique teaching style and strategy
have probably most contributed to his success at the
university. When asked what exactly his teaching
strategy was, Toy replied, ill enjoy basing my lectures
on a General George S. Patton format." All joking
,3 , . an
aside, though, he did go on to explain his teaching
methods. First, he said, he determines the level of the
students taking the class lfreshmen, seniors, graduates,
etc.l. Based on this consideration, he then decides
what he thinks the students should learn in the class.
He then outlines the topics he wants to discuss, decides
on an appropriate textbook lhe feels that textbooks are
mostly just security blankets for studentsl, and decides
on the use of labs for the class. Toy's lectures are all
outlined and put onto transparencies. The lectures tend
to move fast because, according to Toy, he is so ex-
cited about the subject.
His advice to students is that they should learn to ac-
cept responsibility for their lives and futures. He feels
that people often blame others for their problems and
that students should understand that part of the
maturation process is learning to accept responsibility
for your own actions. Toy also has advice for fellow
faculty members. He feels that teachers should go into
each class thinking as if it were their last and if that
class would be the way they would want to be
remembered. He thinks they should treat students to
the kind of experience they would want their own sons
and daughters to have.
Toy enjoys most about being a professor the breadth
of exposure he has. He has the opportunity to spend
time with other professors from DU and other univer-
sities, fraternity members, athletes that he encounters in
the gym, and any student who is willing to chat with
him. til enjoy the capability of moving from place to
place and the wide variety of things to do," said Toy.
uI feel that faculty can get involved with students as
much as they want, and those who donlt really miss
out on a lot."

Yuan Jia-Ju: An Incredible Struggle
A dedicated university English professor, he was of-
fered two scholarships to study in the United States in
1946. Unfortunately, his parents, sicknesses then
prevented him from coming to America. After this,
Mao and his followers forced a state of revolution upon
his country and Mr. Yuan was unable to consider going
Maols communism invaded the country and imposed
itself upon every citizen of China. People began feeling
the abruptness of change from capitalism. Mr. Yuan
made the mistake of commenting, among friends, that
contrary to Maols promises, livingconditions were not
getting better. He pointed out the irony that everyone
had noticed: ilEven when one has money, one cannot
buy anythingW k
Soon after this, in 1958, he was labelled a rightist,
pro-American committing a crime against the Com-
munist Party. Officials and members of the Communist
Party called him one from iithe old thinking" and
publicly denounced him as a political prisoner.
He was sent to the countryside that same year with
hundreds of other political prisoners to perform manual
labor for about a year. The conditions there were horri-
ble, he says. HI was separated from my family, my wife
and two children,... and forced to carry heavy loads of
wood or iron ore up and down mountainsides." He
and many others carried their loads, often more than
100 pounds each, up and down very precipitous
mountain paths. While he was there one person was
killed falling off one of the narrow trails. III ate meals of
water with vegetables? he says. iiOnce a month I was
allowed meat and once a month rice. You cannot im-
agine the conditions," he says with a pained look in his
After nearly a year of hard labor, Mr. Yuan was
allowed to return to the university. But instead of the
work he was accustomed to as an experienced pro-
fessor, he was given degrading tasks to do. He was
made to put in ten-hour days cleaning, carrying water,
ill tried to avoid seeing my family because the family
of a lrightist, is always suspected of being anti-
communist. They did not want to be punished and I
wished no harm for them, so we lived apart? Even
after returning from his banishment, he was still labelled
a political prisoner - a rightist - and was carefully wat-
ched, his actions constantly being questioned.
Visiting American professors who taught at his
university in 1980 found out about Mr. Yuanls unfulfill-
ed desire to visit America, so they arranged for him to
receive a scholarship from the English Department at
the University of Denver. Some friends in America
gave him a roundtrip ticket to America; others con-
tinually give him money to live on.
He came to America with four very ambitious pur-
poses. His smile returns when he speaks of them. uI
am told it will be difficult? he says modestly in his
heavy accent. His goals are to learn about American
literature; to compile a dictionary of description - how
different authors deal with the same topic - to translate
a history of Chinese civilization into English and to
write an anthology of short stories to record events dur-
ing Maols Cultural Revolution.
Students see Mr. Yuan walking briskly across the DU
campus, always with a bright smile for people he
passes. Watching his smile and the way he takes his
time to look around him wherever he goes, one is oc-
casionally struck with the realization that this man is
seeing the world from a totally different view - that of
coming out of dullness and into a promising new
world. He writes in a composition class: uI love Denver
for its beautiful streets, quiet residences and bright sun-
shine. Whatls more is the enthusiasm and goodwill and
friendship I have received from people here. I believe I
am turning a new page in my life."

Dr. William Zaranka
One important requirement of many pro-
fessors is that they write and publish. Doctor
William Zaranka of the English department
has fulfilled this requirement, and then some.
Zaranka, head of the Creative Writing pro-
gram and poet in his own right, has published
three books and is searching for a publisher
for the fourth.
Two of his books, called Brand-X anthologies, are
parodies of the famed Norton anthologies of poetry,
fiction, classics and more. He chuckles when he speaks
of the books. tiThe formats the same tas the Norton
anthologiesi, but theyire parodies of poetry and fiction.
While in Norton there are those long academic in-
troductions to the authors and poets, the Brand-x has
parodies of academic intros." His two parodies which
he wrote with a partner, have both gotten favorable
reviews by such papers as the New York Times
booklist. One is on poetry, and the other on fiction
from Daniel DeFoe I18th Centuryi up to present times.
The other book Zaranka has published is a collection
of some of his poems, called A Mirror Driven Through
Nature, which he published in 1981. Presently he has
another manuscript of collected poetry for which he is
seeking a publisher.
Zaranka has been at DU since 1979. He received his
BA in 1966 from a New Jersey college, his Masters at
Purdue in 1969 and was awarded his Ph.D. in 1974
from Denver University. He came here from the
University of Pennsylvania, where he was assistant pro-
fessor. He wa happy to come to DU to teach, he says.
III loved it as a student and I love it now?
He enjoys teaching in the writing program here, one
of the oldest writing programs in the country. iiThis job
is a great pleasure for me,H he adds. itlt's refreshing.
This brings my intereste together - my vocation and
avocation are made onefi
He teaches Creative Writing - Poetry, Poetry Since
1945 and a seminar in reviewing poetry to graduate
students. To undergrads, he teaches English Literature
III, a short fiction class, a ZOO-Ievel poetry course and
occasionally another American or English literature
class. He does all this along with overseeing the writing
program. In this he encourages writing majors in their
work and instructs them in improving their styles. He
emphasizes getting a work published as soon as possi-
ble, and cites the DU literary magazine Foothills as tithe
perfect place to start publishing poems?
He feels DU writing majors today have a lot of
potential. iiMany grad students are publishing and even
some undergrads are publishing...It feels good to be
around these talented students...I compare these
students favorably with the Ivy League students I
taught at Penanhis is definitely where I want to bef,
When he has spare time, Zaranka enjoys astronomy
and computers. He recently purchased his own com-
puter and likes to program astronomical simulations.

JULIA C. NORD, a political science
major, sees the importance of interaction
between people, and in her many in-

acceptance to medical school.
"My role as a resident assistant - which
Pve been for two and a half years - has
taught me how to interact better with peo-

that goes on in college is learning about
people - rather than only from academics.
uI see DU as a growing school in
almost every academic area and with the
proposed changes, things can get even
better...However, the students at DU can
be very apathetic in extra-curricular ac-
tivities - and could become more involved.

DU was one of the happiest times of my live. It was a
period when we thought we could do just about anything,
solve any problem. We had immense hope for the future.
We were able to see problems in black and white, and of
course, all problems had immeidate solutions.
Life was much different then. It was the apathetic era,
the era of the Organization Man. We were a little to early
for the radicalism ofthe Vietnam War era, though it was a
period of racial awareness. t1 remember writing an
editorial for the Clarion about what DU students could do
to protest racist There also were great stirrings of
feminism, only we didn't know it. I remember being in-
censed that girls had dorm hours but boys didn't teven

no name, as Betty Friedan put it. We were in a period of
political awakening. I remember John F. Kennedy, then a
senator, gave a lecture at DU tthat must have been in the
fall of 19591 that really made us become aware of politics.
What I liked most about DU was that we could do just
about anything. During my three years there tl went
through in three years, not fouri, I was editor of the
K-Book, editor of the literary magazine, news editor of the
Clarion, head of Freshman Camp, vice president of the
Senate, member of Campus Commission, and so on, in
part because it was so simple. Nobody else wanted that
stuff. It was great fun though I waited 20 years after I
graduated to get involved in anything again.
Students are so much more sophisiticated today, better
prepared for the world, more knowledgeable. Women of
my generation, you have to remember, weren't even
trained to work. The school never let you know when job
recruitment people showed up. Only boys were told.
Most of the women I graduated with had no idea what to
do for a career. Virtually all of them never intended to

there's Metro, so maybe it doesn't matteri. 20 years ago it
was a community college. Because the Business School
was downtown, you could go to school then work all day,
and many students worked to put themselves through
school I suspect fewer do today. But academically, I think,
it is a better school--fewer part time people trying to sup-
plement their income by teaching. Do you still have that
awful Basic Communications class? I understand there are
no longer is a journalism major, which I think is a pity.
What are your thoughts on the future?
God knows. We've had our chance, and I'm not so sure
we haven't made some strides. But now it's your turn.

What sort of interesting things have
happened to you since you left DU?
"On November 2, 1976, an unexpected but advan-
tageous appointment placed the five of us plus two at the
Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, Shape,
Belgium. My late husband, Oscar Shaw, was a federal
employee. General Alexander M. Haig - recent Secretary
of State - was there, too. Fortunately, Oscar was able to
cancel the last year of a three year contract and we return-
ed to our wonderful home in Denver. Two years of in-
teresting work, marvelous travel and coming to know fine
people, European and American, only magnified how tru-
Iy wonderful it is to be an American citizen! I would be
less than honest if I didn't admit that we are spoiled - and
happily so, I hope - Americans!
What special memories do you have of
Numero uno - the way I was made to fell like an in-
dividual not a number. That is a special privilege today
and was then, too. Number two - apartment dorm living!
But, one year was enough for me! I never realized how
important organizational work would be to my future.
Those I worked with were SUPER! How often I draw on
Is 1982 like you thought it might be
while at DU?
Are you kidding? Frankly, while at DU, September '52
to June '56, who thought of 1982? George Orwell, I am
sure. But then, his year was 1984!
How are the 80's different from your
Personally, the levels of responsibility are not com-
parable! My college days did not carry the same ap-
prehension. IViet Nam' was not in our vocabulary. Nor
was 'inflation.' Remember our tuition of $11.00 a quarter
thourl which went to $15.00?
How do you feel DU has changed?
Bluejeans were only for working on floats. As I drive
down Evans, I don't see many pairs of nylons, heels or
skirts, too bad!
Oh, the new buildings are beautifully designed.
Purpose is still striving to being fulfillment. I am convinc-
ed that the basic philosophy is the same. Educational
goals are still high. Only staffing, some methods and
modifications have been necessitated by time. With DU,
as with the world we live in , time has marched on.
Hopefully, the end results will be the same...a well-
rounded, responsive and responsible citizen...able to use
the advantages of a fine education to his or her fullest.
Education is a freedom of the wonderful, free society we
possess. DEMOCRACY is the BEST of all worlds!
What are some of your thoughts on
We definitely have much to look forward to. We
should not be afraid of the tomorrows. We should build
on the solid foundation afforded to us. Oh, but the sun
shines brightly. The troubled teens will pass and they will
grow, strong and straight just as we did!

What are your most significant
memories of DU?
"...In the spring of 1967 I was a freshman at DU and I
read an ad in the Denver Clarion which stated that posi-
tions were open for the 1968 K-Book. I applied for the
position of business manager. But, before I knew what
was happening, I was elected Editor by the Board of
Publications at the ripe old age of 18.
There were serious problems with the 1967 K-Book and
the University eventually took over the yearbook and
completed the 1967 edition. When I was elected editor,
there was a lot of discussion about discontinuing the year-
book. The Student Senate even made drastic cuts in the
yearbook budget in hopes of ending the project. But
somehow the Board of Publications believed that I could
do the job and the 1968 Kynewisbok was under way.
I hired 25 good people - none of us had ever worked on
a college yearbook before - and we got to work. We also
charged the student body $2 a copy, something which
had never been done before.
Of all the things I have done, I am most proud of the
1968 Kynewisbok. We started with nothing and produced
a good product. Just knowing that you are at work this
year putting together the 1983 edition means that we did
our job perpetuating an important part of the DU
It has been twelve years since I graduated from DU. I
own and operate two businesses and employ over 100
people. There is no question that my education inside and
outside the classroom at DU prepared me to be successful
in the business arena.
l have many memories of DU, but I always think of AI
Serafin when I think of DU. Al was director of Student Ac-
tivities. He not only gave me, and every other student
leader, good advice and guidance, but he was a great
friend. I'm sorry you can't meet him, he was a special per-
son. I miss him still. AI convinced me that I could over-
come the odds and put out the 1968 K-Book. I accepted
his challenge and he supported us all the way.
...And, of course, I met my wife at DU and we were
married the day after I graduated in Evans Memorial
Chapel. A lot of good things happened for me at DU.
How are the 80's different from your
When we were attending DU in the late 60's, the at-
mosphere was filled with apathy, fear, distrust and
dismay. The war in Vietnam was in full swing and students
were very militant. We had our famous '39' students who
took over Old Main tUniversity Halli and were expelled
by the Chancellor...We had our anti-war tent city
'Woodstock West' which was dismantled by the National
Guard. It seemed like everyone had a cause which need-
ed to be put on trial.
Today it appears that students are more interested in
learning how they can change things for the better, in-
stead of tearing away at the fabric of society as we know it.

Ten years after his graduation, STEVEN F.
WILLE, 1973 Kynewisbok editor, is married with
two daughters and a newly born son. Mr. Wille
lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he is a
Marketing Manager for Reliance Insurance.
What are some of the major things that
have happened to you since your gradua-
tion from DU?
Upon graduation in 1973, I loaded all my worldly
possessions - a stereo, a sleeping bag, a few clothes, and a
box of yearbooks - in my Chevy Van and drove to Chicago
to work for Kemper Insurance. Through the next six years,
as a marketing representative, I was transferred twice, first
to Columbus, Ohio, and then to Indianapolis, Indiana.
Three years ago I joined Reliance Insurance as the
marketing manager in the Indianapolis Branch Office.
The local people ask why I live in Indiana when I am a
Denver native. All I can say is that as much as I love Col-
orado, in Indiana I have a good job, a good family, and a
What special memories do you have of
I remember vividly the smell of the Kynewisbok as it
rolled off the presses in early May, 1973. To this day when
I smell the aroma of fresh ink on newly printed material, I
reflect on my feelings of exhilaration after a year of agony
spent in producing that book. To this day, I consider being
editor of volume 75 of Kynewisbok to have been my most
difficult challenge and one of my most rewarding ex-

I fully understand the importance of a yearbook. It is a
medium designed to communicate into the future. After
all the newspapers and magazines are discarded and after
the electronic media has been broadcast, the yearbook
will remain safely tucked away wherever it is that a person
keeps his or her most prized possessions. One can pick
up a yearbook and imagine what life may have been like

The early 705 were a time of rebellion. My generation
of college students rejected everything conventional. The
Student Senate even tried to abolish the Kynewisbok. We
wore faded jeans, never designer jeans. Many from my
generation thought they had to tear down the old world to
build a new world. Today, it seems that students and
young people in general are more interested in getting
ahead within the framework of society rather than chang-

Kynewisbok still continues, as does the University of
Denver. In the early 1970's we wondered if anything tradi-

the first sentence of the letter "As one of the oldest

publication. I hope that there will be many more volumes
after volume 85.

minimum 3.0 grade point average and
extremely high dedication to the DU
community in the form of participating
in student groups. For faculty our
criterion was dedication to students and
the University beyond the forty-hour-a-
week job. Many fit this category, and
we had a hard time choosing. But we

nation who are content to receive
the benefits of government
without assuming any of the

who are wiHing to ive of their

leave their names, like stars,
emblazoned in the Chronicles of
their country's history.in a
University the situation is similar.
This Pioneer section was designed
as a means of recognition and
dedicated to those who have fully

University of Denver, in various
fields of activity, in some small
return for what our University has
repaid t0 thzm.

KYNEWISBOK, in carrying on
that Pioneer spirit of dedica-

list of true Pioneers who work-

year a number of Pioneers is
chosen, each outstanding in his
or her field of studies and ac-
tivities. We feel proud that
such distinguished people can
be added to the list.
Loyal Pioneers - who have been the
moving spirit of our student life - we
honor you. With pride we place you

Dr. Robert Burrell, Dean of Students, was chosen by
the Pioneer Award Committee because of his concern
for students and efforts to improve the Dean of Students
Ohice. He was brought here two years ago in an effort
to Step Up student involvement on campus.
ttOur goal is to rekindle a sense of student commit-
ment to the school. Success lies in getting the students
while theytre freshmen, form a sense of
involvement...Too many of our students are missing a
significant part of the University experience be seeing it
only as a place to attend classes. Half the learning ex-
perience goes on outside the classroom. Iwant us to
have the reputation of being a quality academic institu-
tion with an equal quality of outside activities. The
students are the best or worst recruiters we have."

Being Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Affairs
is not an easy job, but Dr. Peter Niehoff enjoys it.
As an economics professor, Dr. Niehoffencounters
many students during his day, and also takes on
the advising ofa great number of students as well
as involving himself in many outside student ac-
tivities. His nominator spoke highly of him, say-
ing, ttHis genuine concern for studentsi college

Since July, 1981, Cindy Lynch has been a
secretary in the Dean of Students Office. This
year she has been recognized for her outstanding
service to the students and student leaders who
come into the office. Her nominator,saying she is
"always cheerful, helpful and encouraging," noted
the extra effort she puts into her job that makes
her so valuable to the Dean of Students Office.
While she works in the office, she is also attend-
ing classes, working toward a Masters degree in
higher education. "I'd like to get a Ph.D. after that
and work in student services, and perhaps teach.
This job gives me insight to what I am learning in
"Our office works hard to meet students' needs.

counter at the arena, and otten puts in many more hours
than what she is paid to do. Her nominator remarked that

A member of many honoraries and activelyin-
volved with AUSA Senate, Martha Killebrew has
been chosen as a Pioneer because of her outstan-
ding service to DU. This year she has served as
President Pro Tempore of the Senate and as
Finance Comittee chairperson. Her nominator
feels the Pioneer award would be an appropriate
"thanks" for "having made such a significant con-
tribution to the University." After graduation she
plans to get married,and would like to work with
student personnel of some kind.

Brian Kitts has been described as having
ushown outstanding service to the UniversityH by
one of his nominators. Kitts, editor of theClarion,
was also active in his Sigma Alpha Epsilon frater-
nity, the Board of Communications, Mortar Board
and other honoraries. He managed to maintain a
high grade point average throughout his college
years. Kitts received his Mass Communications
and Political Science degree in line of ,83 and
plans to go into media. ltBut definitely not

He says he maintained his high grades because
he ltlearned early on how to budget time...I also en-

When looking back at DU, he will remember Hthe
people? he says. llI have learned so much having
to deal with people at theClarion, the administra-
tion, my fi'aternity brothers, my roommates, not
just people in my classes. P11 also remember the
stupid, wild things live done... I wish I could tell
everyone Pve come in contact with how invaluable
theyive been to me. Pve learned as much from the
disagreeable people as Ihave Rom my friends -the
great people I know and love and respect?
"I've enjoyed being president of the
musicfratemity and manager of the or-

in academics, Bill Kohut receive recognition in
Who's Who this year. He was extremely important
in imprOVing the quality of the Lamont School.

Active in his fraternity, the Board of Communications,
Alpine Club and many honoraries, Kevin Lindahl was
ah obVious candidate for the Pioneer awards this year.
One of his nominations noted his Hselfless devotion" to
the University as being an inspiration for others. He
maintained a high rade point average throughout
school, even thougi he became quite heavil involved
in Universit activities. After graduation he p ans to at
tend law achool and study environmental law. "I'd like
to be a public planner," he says, "and work with the
government to establish a safe environment."
"I don't think I have any talents that others don't
have. People can do whatever they decide to do. And I
wish they could do better than they do...l owe a lot to
my friends, classmates, professors and administrators,
who gave me the opportunities I had."
"Working with the Senate has been
most rewarding for me. Robert tLazarus,
AUSA Presidentl and l were able to work
with our senators and motivate them to
work harder... maybe we did do something
lulia Nord, Vice President of AUSA Senate, a
founder of the pep band and the Political Science
Club, tthas probably done more for DU than anyone
I know," said one of her nominators. She is also a
member of a numerous list of honoraries. Her con-
cern for what went on in many student groups was
encoura$ing to many. In addition, she maintained
an excel ent grade point average throughout her
college years. .
What will she remember most about DU? HThe
people; the friends I've made. Those emotions of
friendship are the ones that stay with you.
Something that sticks in my mind is a Barry
Manilow song. The words say, 'I can't quite
remember all the names, but each one is precious
all the same."'
"My best experience? The whole DU ex-
perience is what you make it; you make things
good or bad. I got out of DU what Iput into
it, and others should too?
Her nominator emphasized Marcelina Riverals con-
cern for the community as her best asset. Marcelina has
been involved in honoraries and numerous college
groups such as Campus Ambassadors, Political Science
Organization, UAA and more. She plans to attend law
school and study labor law, in order to help the com-
munity when she graduates.
ttI will remember the people at DU and what I learn-
ed from them. That is something you keep carrying on;
you learn how to interact and communicate, and that
goes into later life. Sometimes the best experience is
staying up late and talking with a roommate or the girls
down the hall...Eyeryone has a responsibility to their
environment- friends, professors and so on. You must
participate and contribute to your environment and you
get more out of this experience."
"The experience of working closely with
gifted and humanitarian teachers is no doubt
what has meant the most."
Senior Pioneer David J. Von Drehle has had close
working relationships with many professors in the
English and Philosophy departments throughout his
educational experience at the University of Denver. He
has received many honors for his educationai
achievements including: Boettcher Foundation Scholar,
Phi Beta Kappa, Mortor Board, and Omicron Delta Kap-
He has served the University Community in several
different areas as: Clarion Editor 1981-82, member of
the Chancellor's Council iUniversity planning and
budgetingi 81-83, and AUSA Court Justice.
Von Drehie wiil study at Oxford for two years in
English language and literature on the Marshall Scholar-
ship, then pursue a PhD program in the states to even-
tuaiiy go into teaching and writing.
In addition to friendships with a whole variety of pro- :
fessors, Von Drehle cites friendships made with power-
fui and impressive personalities in administration as
rewards of his DU experience.

working with people in different groups

Marianne Weingardt has served as a fine example
of the outstanding student." Marianne has been a
member of Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Beta Kappa,

ttWelre proud of one
of the most comprehen-
sive health programs
compared with other col-
leges," said Dr. Elinor
Christiansen, director of
DUls Student Health
Center since 1975. The
Center received the
Award for outstanding
service in 1981.
DU students are offered
many different types of ser-
vices through the center in-
cluding a full-time medical
clinic, gynecological tGYNl
services, a mental health
clinic, a dental clinic, or-
thopedist consultation, der-
X-Ray, and Ear, Nose and
Throat services offered by a
physician who is donatlng hlS
time. Such services are con-
venient and of low cost to
the student, free to students
enrolled for 10 or more
hours, at a $5 fee to part-
time students, with most lab
The clinic sees 20,000 patient
visits a year with more than 60070
of students enrolled using the ser-
vice more than once a year. It is
staffed with three full-time doctors
and a nurse practitioner as well as
four part-time doctors in GYN,
equivalents in nursing, a full-time
dentist, 8 part-time dentists, an
oral surgeon and orthodontist on
consultation as needed.
Dr. Christiansen cites several
reasons for high usage of the ser-
vices: the large number of out-of-
state students, confidence in the
quality staff and facilities, conve-
nience and low cost, as well as the
high assurance of confidentiality.
The university has had a health
center on campus since 1947. In
1977, it was moved to the second
and third floors of Centennial
Hallsi Second and Third Floors? Student Health Center
Halls. An advantage Dr. Chris-
tiansen cites in having the center in
a residence hall is for the closeness
and convenience, especially during
the winter flu season. ilThe initial
reaction to having the center in
Halls was the concern of some
students over germs, but we told
them the germs we see are yoursP
A new service the Health Center
offers to students is its new
Wellness Resource Center housed
on the third floor of Halls with
pamphlets on preventative health
and general wellness available. An
academic course on wellness is also
being created. uWe think preven-
tative medicine and health educa-
tion are an important part of our
responsibility. Because health care
costs are rising, we want to help
students learn habits to reduce
health care costs later? said Dr.
Another program for students to
save money on health care is the
new insurance plan with Mutual of
Omaha, which pays 80070 of the
first $5,000.00 with no deductable
and 100070 of the second $5,000.00.
It is mandatory for all students,
with an option to waive if the stu-
dent has adequate coverage. tilt is
designed to help students with
medical costs of serious illness or
accidents. We didnit want students
to have to drop out of school
because of high medical costs,"
said Dr. Christiansen.
DUls Health Center takes care
of minor emergencies such as the
suturing of wounds and treatment
of burns, eye injuries, sprains and
fractures. iiWe have a good work-
ing relationship with Porter
Hospital who handles our
emergencies. At Porter, DU
students are given prompt, quality
care with reasonable chargesfl said
Students are encouraged to make
appointments at the medical clinic
from 8:00 to 5:00, Monday
through Friday for any of the
other services offered, since high
volumes of walk-ins are hard to
According to Dr. Christiansen,
the center sees a wide spectrum of
health problems, most commonly
accidents or injuries, respiratory
infections, and gastro-intestinal
Dr. Christiansen 'comments,
HOur students get a lot for no
cost. The quality and variety of
our service is almost comparable to
that of larger universities such as
CU, who charges the student
$53.00 a semester. And here, the
students only have to wait a few

In adwsi11g an ine0111111g freshman
on which residence halI to live in,
, resident assistant of
In Centennial Halls, it is the
recently established Halls Program
Board tHPBl that has brought
many new programming ideas to
Halls. HPB and Pat OiRourke, the
first resident director to stay a full
year in three years, have initiated a
ski trip, a Valentines Day Dance,
mid-night coffee and donuts during
finals, a non-alcoholic Chocolate
Decadence party as well as keeping
up the traditional Halls Casino
Night with proceeds going to
Denver Special Olympics. HPB also
wants to set a Guiness Record.
OlRourke cites several strengths
of the students living in Halls. "The
students have become increasingly
responsible toward their environ-
ment, more involved and settled.
The residence hall government,
judicial system and the program
board are concerned in taking an ac-
tive participation in the activities of
Halls," he said. ltAthletics program
is good in Halls, you can throw out
any type of ball and they will choose
up sides and play. They have struck
a balance between academics and
athleticsfl he said.
In the 70s there was a thematic
approach to the residence halls with
Business and Education students en-
couraged to live in Halls. But accor-
ding to OlRourke that is not true
now; there is no difference in types
of students living in each hall
ilalthough the thematic approach
still haunts us especially in program-
mingfl he said.
O,Rourke sees advantages to liv-
ing in Halls in the quick access to
the health center housed in the
building and the athletic playing
fields right outside its doors, as well
as its own facilities including a com-
puter terminal, weight room,
darkroom, and its own cafeteria
shared with Towers residents this
year. Halls is also closest of the
three residence halls to the Business
Classrooms Building, where a ma-
jority of classes are held.
Halls is also looking ahead at a
proposal of co-ed living by floors,
which would serve to decrease van-
dalism and foster a brother-sister
relationship among residents.
Residents are also looking at start-
mg a student store within Halls.
Centennial Towers has a reputa-
tion for housing mostly students in
the fine arts and humanities, with
facilities and programming geared
toward these interests. While the
creative tradition still holds at
Towers, the people who live there
Towers originated as part of an
innovative program in which
residence halls would, by their
facilities and programming, cater to
and support certain majors. Towers
appealed to the fine arts and
humanities students, providing a
dance room, a music practice room,
and theatre equipment. Its program-
ming stressed creativity with events
such as coffee houses, plays and
C.A.T. tCreativity at Towersl week.
Towers also was heavily involved in
Towers Jam, a spring concert
featuring local bands. While the Ad-
missions Office still recommends
that fine arts students live in
Towers, the Housing Office places
students according to choice and
available space, according to Jan
Weinrich, the resident director at
Towers. This gives Towers a diverse
Towers has its traditional music
and theatre majors, but also majors
in such differing areas as computer
science, business, and psychology.
The hall also boasts having the
highest number of international
students of any campus housing.
According to Renata Czaki, a resi-
dent assistant in Towers for 3 years,
uindividuality is a key word at
Towers." She believs this is good,
saying, "you canlt live in your own
myopic little world. You have to get
to know other people."
Along with this diversity, there
seems to be a great tolerance of
alternative lifestyles, notes
Weinrich. "The level of acceptance
of students who express themselves
is fascinating. People can get up and
express themselves and get applaud-
ed for it," she said. Amy Gilley, a
freshman theatre major described
Towers residents as "free spirits,"
and added, ltAnything goes?
Towers still has problems,
however, the main one being a drop
in residents due to economic condi-
tions. There are fewer freshman
enrolling, according to Weinrich,
and they are choosing more prac-
tical majors, such as business and
science. Admissions then recom-
mends that they live at the other
halls. The cafeteria at Towers was
closed due to practical considera-
tions, Weinrich added, and its
future depends on enrollment in
subsequent years. Another com-
plaint concerns the deterioration of
the music facilities. "The music
room is not kept up well and the
pianos available are generally out of
tune. They say this place tTowersl is
good for music majors? said Kathy
Fischer, a sophomore in the music
school, "Donlt believe it."
Towers continues in the creative
tradition, not so much in the majors
it attracts, as in the individuals
themselves. The willingness of the
residents to accept foreign students
and others with alternative lifestyles
makes Towers a special place to live.
Val Frank, a sophomore psychology
major, admitted Towers was her last
choice as a freshman, but she said,
th0w 1 wouldnlt want to live
anywhere else. All my friends are
here.n Senior HRM major Ron
Wallach, after living in every other
form of campus housing, summed it
up, saying, ttltls the bestfl
