For here ot the University, we ore connected to many things, some may be more apparent than others, and the connections do exist. We ore connected to the University, to our fellow students and to our professors. We ore connected to our families bock home, to other schools, to the real world. There is (yes, really) a connection between studying and portying, between learning and doing, and between getting a degree and getting a job. Finally, we ore connected to the history of the University. With that, we would like to conclude with the following quote: In submitting to you this volume of the Index, we have to offer a congradulotion upon being enabled to look bock on a year . . . replete with facts which, os bearing on the future of our institution, are significant. We allude to the growing popularity of our college ond the rank it is taking among institutions of learning. From the year of its foundation the college has had to encounter oppositions of every sort and mognitude . . . We ore slowly but surely living down all this unfriendliness; and, fellow-student, don ' t leave all this work of conversion to the mon ot the wheel. Although the ship is in good hands, yet we, as students, in our peculiar relations with one another and with the public, act on importont port in giving character and ploce to the college . . . We hove a word to soy to the succeeding class: Do not foil to publish the Index; there ore some in every doss who will be indifferent or opposed to the publication. This is the only exponent there is in college to represent the students, which ought to be sufficient reason for its continuance.

REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS The Ski Club, the Jugglers Club, and the Newman Club are just a few of the numerous groups in which a UMass student may become involved with on and off-campus. These groups are known as Registered Student Organizations, and Cover a broad range of activities, services, and political perspectives. The organizations listed below are only a sampling of those available at the Universi- ty. Afro-American Society Innkeepers Club Ahora International Club Alternative Energy Coalition jugglers Club Alumnj Association Kundalini Yoga Club Amateur Radio Association Kung Fu Club Aquatic Club Lesbian Union Archery Club Mass Pirg Astronomy Club Motorcycle Co-op Auto Workshop Naiads Badmiton Club National Student Exchange Bahaii Club Newman Club Bicycle Co-op Nummo News Bicycle Club Office of Third World Affairs Boltwood Project Outing Club Bowling CLub Parachute Club Boxing Club Peoples Gay Alliance Bullpen Club Peoples Market Chess Club Philosophy Club Classics Society Photographers Guild Collegian Photo Co-op Comix Club Rugby Club Commuter Collective Ski Club Credit Union Solar Energy Collective Distinguished Vistors Program Spectrum Drum Sporting Goods Co-op Earth Foods Student Union Crafts Fashion Council Students Against The Draft Fencing Club Tai Chi Chaun Club Field Hocky Club Tennis Club Flying Club Union Records Unlimited Frisbee Team Union Program Council Handicapped Student Club Valley Womens Voice Hangliding Club Veterens Service Organization Hey makers Volleyball Club Hillel WFCR Index WMUA Indian Association WSYL 9 I I STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION 10 STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Every undergraduate who pays the Student Activities Tax on the fee bill is a member of the Student Government Association. The SGA attempts to provide a strong voice for student interests both within the University and outside of it. The SGA presdient is elected popularly each spring to represent students in the University, the Board of Trustees, and the State legislature. Two students serve as co-presidents — one serves as the student member of the Board of Trustees, and the other serves as the student body president. i 4 I I 11 BOARD OF GOVERNORS The Campus Center Student Union Board of Governors has many tasks. We provide student input into many decisions Management may wish to make within the complex. We are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that student concerns are part of all policy made for the Complex. Sometimes that can be a very difficult job. An example of this responsibility is maintaining input into the many renovations planned for the Campus Center Student Union Building. Another function of the board is to watchdog all day-to-day operations in the Complex. The board is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that all increases in fees or retail prices are justified. We must be on top of financial as well as operational activities that occur in the day-to-day operations of the food services department, Retail Services Department, Hotel, Mini-store, Administration, etc. The Board of Governors also provides many direct services to the UMass community. We certify all vendors who wish to sell on the concourse. We provide food and room waivers for qualifying organizations. We operate a key function which is responsible for distributing keys to all student organizations in the Complex. The Board Of Governors also funds many groups providing services to the UMass community including the Craft Shop, the Student Union Gallery, Governor ' s Program Council, Cable Video Project, and the Union Program Council. We oversee their financial records, provide technical assistance, and provide a calendar for publicity of their functions. In summary, the Board of Governors is an elected group of students maintaining student input in the Campus Center Student Union Complex. We provide services and oversee the operations of all functions in the Complex. 12 I i OUTING CLUB O The UMass Outing Club serves to bring people together for good times and the opportunity to introduce each other to the outdoors. Club trips range from a single day to several weeks, local to cross country. Club members plan and lead trips in hiking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, winter mountaineering, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. The Outing Club provides activities for people of all levels of skills, from beginner to expert. The club maintains its own equipment, which may be rented for private use. The club also maintains a cabin just outside the White Mountains in New Hampshire that is available to anyone affiliated with the University and to other Outing Clubs. 13 I I EARTHFOODS Earthfoods is a cooperatively run student restaurant serving inexpensive vegetarian cuisine in a comfortable, informal atmosphere, its primary goal is to provide healthy, vegetarian foods for low cost to the UMass com- munity. Earthfoods serves as a gathering place for nonsmokers, students who prefer vegetarian food, and those who are more comfortable in an antiprofit setting. Musicians often perform during lunches, and artists and performers are welcome to share their talents at the col- lective in exchange for meals and tips. 14 PEOPLE ' S MARKET Do you want to pick up a bagel and cheese for lunch? How about some fresh fruit? At People ' s Market, you will be able to find these things and much more at very low prices. It is a collectively run food store located in the Student Union. It offers a wide variety of inexpensive, nutritious food which is otherwise not available on cam- pus. The market is a place for students to learn about cooperative business, and is a center for sharing informa- tion on nutrition and politics. But mostly it is a student run store and people are always welcome. 15 I I KARATE CLUB The UMass Karate Club, founded in 1976, is dedicated to the study and practice of karate for the physical and mental development of its members. The club is a member of The International Shotokan Karate Federation- Japan Karate Association. Classes are a mix of Sparring (Kumite) and form (Kata). Students wishing to learn self-defense, cfesiring to stay in good physical condition, and those interested in learning about Eastern Culture are encouraged to join. Karate is also a sport, and the club competes in East Coast Collegiate Karate Union Tournament. 16 I I HANDICAP COLLECTIVE The Handicapped Students Collective is a group composed of both handicapped and nonhandicapped students. Members of the group work together to raise awareness within the University community of the problems and concerns of the handicapped population. The collective ' s nope is that through education of the community these problems may be eliminated so handicapped students can become better integrated into all activities of University life. HANDICAPPED STUDENT AFFAIRS Handicapped Student Affairs provides support for the disabled students within the University area. The office can aid the student with preferential course scheduling, orientation programs, housing assistance, and counseling services. The University has been awarded grants to reduce architectural barriers and make campus more accessible to the handicapped. A campus Architectural Barriers Board has been appointed to coordinate future barrier reduction projects. 17 I I SPORTING GOODS CO-OP The Sporting Goods Coop provides a variety of athletic equipment to the University at reasonable and affordable prices. Sweatshirts, footwear, frisbees, baseball, tennis, Dasketball, and raquetbail equipment are all available for purchase by students. The coop is run by student volun- teers. 18 BICYCLE CO-OP The bicycle Coop is a student run bicycle service center, it sells parts and accessories at affordable prices, provides professional repairs, gives advice on equip- ment, and provides a work area and tools for do-it- yourself repairs. Students who join the Coop are entitled to purchase parts at less than retail cost. Membership in the Coop involves at least two hours of work each week. 19 XJ-! PHOTO CO-OP The University Photo Coop is a student run organiza- tion providing low cost film, paper, chemicals and pro- cessing for members of the University community. The Coop also maintains an area for Advertisements concern- ing photography and a library of photographic supply catalogs. 20 U NION RECORDS UNLIMITED Union Records Unlimited is a student run and student funded business located next to the Hatch in the Student Union Building, it provides students with records, tapes and concert tickets., As an employee of URU, a student gains practical educational experience in management, marketing, public relations, procurement, and sales. 21 STUDENT CREDIT UNION The UMass Student Federal Credit Union is a federally chartered, student savings bank. The credit union is the largest of its kind in the country. The primary purpose of the UMSFCU is to provide its members with high interest rates on their savings and low interest on loans. The credit union is staffed entirely by volunteer students. Two internships are also offered each semester as an opportunity to gain academic credit as well as experience in the banking business. 22 I I STUDENT RADIO STATIONS WSYL WMUA 23 I I COLLEGIAN Every day, Monday through Friday, thousands of Uni- versity of Massachusetts students and employees pick up copies of their campus newspaper, the Massachusetts Daily Collegian. What happens to these papers once they ' re pici ed up, however, is anyone ' s guess. For sure, some of the papers are actually read for the comics, the advertisements, used for the crossword puzzle or for the dining common menu. And still others are probably used for more practical things like wrapping fish, lining the birdcage, or housebreaking the dog. What much of the University community doesn ' t see in the paper, however, is the time and the effort that goes into producing the daily product. From Sunday through Thursday each week, dozens of students crowd the Colle- gian ' s windowless offices in the basement of the Campus Center to write or edit news stories, take photographs, layout, sell advertising, typeset, or paste up the pages. Often working until 4 or 5 in the morning, the Collegian staff members, all full-time students, work to perfect their craft in the hope of landing a job in the " real world " upon graduation. But resume building alone cannot explain the almost fanatical devotion most staff members have. In past years. Collegian editors and staff members have gone to great lengths, doing all sorts of things at some very odd hours to insure that the newspaper comes out, as promised. In recent years, people have leaped from burning cars to run the paper to the printers before reporting the accident, have driven through blizzards, have gotten out of warm beds at all hours of the morning to drive to the printers in Ware, or have nearly gotten arrested while driving the paper. Other people nave experienced the agony of having to write, edit, and then deliver the paper the following morning, of losing pages of the paper, or of accidentally dropping them into mud puddles. Above all, however, there are the happy times and the fond memories of the paper ' s successes that are most cherished by members of the staff. When a particularly good story is run, when the community has oeen made better because of something the paper has done, it all sticks out prominently in the minds of staff members for years to come. Long after everyone has left the University, and long before any of the staff members arrived, the Collegian has flourishea. But while the paper will remain an institution, it is the people who produce it that give it the extra- added touch and make it just a little bit more special. And that is something that constantly changes ana is exciting to experience. — Ed Levine 24 I I Fall 1980 Board of Editors Editor-in-Chief Robert E. Stein Managing Editor Fran T.

UPC ' s programming runs the gamut of con- temporary music- from Rock ' n Roll to Folk to Jazz to Raggae to New Wave. These concerts are entirely student staffed, and members can choose to work on stage crew, security, publicity, or any other facet of concert production. UMas- s Amerst is one of the few universities around the country where concerts are entirely student-produced, and this pro- vides a unique learning experience for its members. In addition to sponsoring concerts in the Fine Arts Center and the Student Union Ballroom, UPC is also responsible for bringing bands to the Blue Wall, and the TOC. Every spring, UPC helps to put on ojxutdoor concerts in each of the residential areas, and in May, sponsors a " Community Day " program in the stadium, which has traditionally been free to students. Performers at this event have included Santana, the Allman Brothers and the Greatful Dead. H P mt HkI I nj k I H I lo l Kk ll f ' 3 El H ' B H s " V H 26 DISTINGUISHED VISITOR ' S PROGRAM The Distinguished Visitors Program is a student-run, student-financed organization that brings writers, politi- cal figures, artists, and other guest lecturers to campus. Past speakers have included Dick Gregory, Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden, Angela Davis, George McGovern, Red Sox stars Bill Lee and Carl Yastrezmski, Abbie Hoffman, and many others. DVP members coordinate all aspects of program pro- duction - contacting speakers, generating campus public- ity, working security, and providing hospitality. In addi- tion, we accept and review proposals for speakers from other student groups and individuals. Membership in DVP is earned by attending three con- secutive weekly meetings, and not missing more than three subsequent meetings in a semester. Members of DVP vote on outside proposals, generate and carry out their own programs,and assume responsibility keeping all DVP operations running smoothly. 27 STUDENT ACTIVITIES OFFICE The Student Activities Office handles the business aspects of ail the RSO groups through a staff of trained professionals who can help a group plan concerts, conference, movies, speakers, ana other activities. 28 NEWMAN CLUB HILLEL The Newman Club is a group of interested students and community members of the Catholic Church on campus. Its goal is to help make University life more personal and meaningful to the individual student. Each semester the club promotes activities in three areas — social, spiritual, and service. It sponsers spa- ghetti dinners, cookouts, dances, intramural teams, Bi- ble studies, camping retreats, and guest speakers. The only prerequisite for the club is the desire for fun and self-satisfaction through the sharing of ideas, values, and talents. Hillel is an organization serving the full spectrum of the Jewish community as well as the general communi- ty on campus in a number of ways: socially, through parties, coffeehouses, and picnics; educationally, through one-credit colloquia and the Hillel library; cul- turally, through frequent films, speakers, Israeli danc- ing, singing, drama groups, and the annual Jewish Arts Festival; religiuosly, through Shabbat and holiday cele- brations and study groups; and geopolitically, through travel, study, and political information on Israel. 29 EVERY WOMAN ' S CENTER The Everywoman ' s Center is a communication center for persons who are interested in issues concerning women. The center ' s resources include referral books listing medical, legal, educational, social, and political organizations. Pogram coordinators provide counseling, advocacy, and other direct services for women on an individual and group basis. Rape counselor advocates, the Poor Women ' s Task Force, Third World Advocates and the Working Women ' s Task Force are just some of the support systems available to members of the community. STUDENT CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND ADVOCACY The Student Center for Educational Research and Advocacy (SCERA) is a student staffed center for researching campus problems and actively advocating solutions. SCERA ' s goals and programs are reviewed and funded by the undergraduate Student Senate. Advocacy teams are assigned to research problems and causes and to design programatic solutions. 30 I I VETERANS SERVICE ORGANIZATION The Veteran ' s Service Organization consists of concerned individuals interested in extending social and Erofessional services to the military veteran population at the University. It offers veterans an opportunity to ecome actively involved in issues and programs which concern them as veterans. MASS PUBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP The Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group is a student directed organization that works for public change in the Commonwealth. Environment and energy issues as well as corporate and government accountability are some of the groups interest. Student involved in MassPIRG work with a professional staff of lawyers, organizers, and advocates to learn a variety of skills such as social issue research and lobbying. A free society depends on the will of the people to govern themselves. When people give up or give in they get taken And when people are knowledgeable and organized they win. .AFJEECONMICA ENERGY mm We ' ve begun to win. MASSACHUSETTS PLBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP 31 I I NUMMO NEWS Nummo News is the Third World Community newspaper for the University.

The Index has long been regarded by other Universities as one of the premier collegiate yearbooks, winning awards and distinguishing itself for excellence in nation wide competition. The Index does not rest on its laurels however, as each year a new staff tries to build upon the innovative design, high quality writing, and imaginative photography that has made the index the highly acclaimed piece of work that it is. The book is produced by a staff of approximately 30 students and offers members of the University community an opportunity to learn and sharpen their skills in the fields of layout, photography, writing and editing. Brian Sullivan 33 GAMMA SIGMA SIGMA Tim ' at yM ttTsm ' Gamma Sigma Sigma A T ! O N Al S I R V { CI SO t O R Jl The primary purpose of Gamma Sigma Sigma is " to unite college and university women in the spirit of service to humanity " . At UMass, members of the organization do this through projects like blood drives, used book exchanges, reading to the blind, visiting nursing homes, running Las Vegas Night with Alpha Phi Omega, and other similar projects to raise money for charity. Gamma Sigma Sigma is not all work, however. Many of the projects are a lot of fun, and social events are held with other chapters and Alpha Phi Omega. Every two years, a national convention gives sisters the chance to meet women from ail over the United States. Membership in Gamma Sigma Sigma is limited to those women willing to help other people. Its only requirement is that you be willing to volunteer your time to bettering someone elses life. Since the group does not have a house, a sister ' s social life can be as broad as she wants. 34 I I ALPHA PHI OMEGA Alpha Phi Omega was founded for the purpose of providing service to our fellow man. Since its founding in 1925, A Phi O brothers have contributed of themselves in thousands of service projects - one of the reasons why Alpha Phi Omega has grown to be the largest fraternity in the country. Here at the University of Massachusetts, our chapter has a varied schedule of projects to which we devote our time each year. Some of these include: operating the " Ride Board " in the Student Union, running " Operation Identification " in which we engrave people ' s valuables in an attempt to reduce thievery, and even clearing a section of the Appalachian Trail. Our main event of the year is our annual " Las Vegas Night " which turns the entire first floor of the Campus Center into a huge casino. This year was our 20th annual " Las Vegas Night " and over the year ' s we have been able to donate over $20,000 to local and national charities. Our activities aren ' t totally service oriented, however. We hold a number of social events throughout the year, as well. Alpha Phi Omega has been known and respected both on the campus and throughout the community since our installation here 29 years ago. Each semester, we look for a select group of individuals who we feel can continue to exhibit our principles of outstanding leadership, friend- ship, and service. Since we are a service fraternity, we have no house; our members live in dormitories and off campus. If you are interested in learning more about Alpha Phi Omega, we will be having open rushes duirng the first few weeks of school. Check our ads in the Daily Collegian for the time and dates, tentatively set for Sept. 14 and 21 in the Campus Ce nter. 35 The ream, S rhe crowd, rhe cheerleaders, F fhe bond, all of these ore ttg connected ro eoch other to moke on exciting sports event. The athletic teams ore nnore closely related and connected to the university than ony other single group of organizations.

" We were young, " third-year coach Pom Hixon said. " We were only playing one senior consistently. We went one game at time and tried to improve with every game. " One gome at o time is how they went . . . right to the Regionals held this year at Springfield College. The Minutewomen had won the tourney the previous year and hod gone on to place seventh at the Nationals. Seeded second in ' 80, the Masso- chusetts squad won its first round, dumping the University of Rhode Island 4-0. They advonced to the semi-finals where they faced the University of Connecticut, a team they hod beoten 2-1 during regular season. UConn got its revenge in the Regionals winning the gome 2-1 and the tournament. When Sue Copies, a junior from Weston, scored in the first half ond Freshmen Goalie Potty Sheo tallied save after save, it looked like UMA55 might advance to the finals. In the second and fatal half, a questionable coll tied the game and sent the two teams into o double overtime that proved fruitless. After two stroke-offs, UConn emerged the victor by a single score, ond put an end to post season ploy for the Minutewomen. The women allowed just six gools scored against them during the entire regular season while scoring 54. Sheo was aided on defense by freshmen Cord Progulski and Coroline Kovonogh. Sophomore Ro Tudryn ond senior Potti Dossio were consistent in shutting down offensive drives by any opposing team. On offense, Minutewomon Judy Strong (o member of this year ' s Olympic team) led the scoring attack with 31 goals and seven ossists. She was followed by sophomore Tino Coffin who finished the season with 12 gools ond five ossists. Cooch Hixon expects the entire team bock (with the excep- tion of the groduoting seniors) in what could ogoin prove ro be the " teom-to-beot " ! -Donna Sullivan FIGLD HOCKGY • fICLD HOCKGY • RGLD HOCKGV • RGLD HOCKGV • RGLD HOCKGY First Row: Caroline Kovonogh, Chrisrine Coughlin, Terry DeGiocomo, Susan Copies, Porriclo Shea, Koren Srifror, Porricia Bossio, Chrisrine Coffin, [Xosemorie Tudryn, Nancy Goode.

The gome ended wirh nine seconds lefr. UMoss and Delaware did borrle on a slick field. Ir was mosriy a gome of defense. Pearson score wirh six minures lefr and rhe Minuremen hod seemingly pulled off onorher upser of a nonleo- gue opponenr; on upser which would moke on NCAA playoff bid oil rhe more reolizoble. Ir didn ' r happen. Delaware quorrerbock Rick Scully lofred o pass which receiv- er Ed Wood pulled down in rhe endzone for o 21-17 win. The rain conrinued up in beauriful downrown Orono, where rhe Minuremen rrovelled ro roke on rhe Block Beors of Maine and New England ' s leading rusher in Lorenzo Douier. Douier gor off one 77-yQrd rouchdown jounr, bur rhe UMoss defense, led by senior John Alien, rockles Dan Petrie, Eric Cregan, defense aids George Lewis ond Frank DiTommaso, end line- backers Scott Crowell and Pete DiTommaso, ollowed rhe rolenred Douier rojusr 40 oddirionol yards as UMoss wenr on ro win rhe gome 21-14. And, rhen came BU. Calling ir a foorboli gome would be polire. " When you allow rhree poinrs, you expecr ro win, " sold UMoss head coach Bob Pickett. UMoss ollowed rhree poinrs. They did nor win. In o whipping wind rhor sloshed rain obour BU ' s Nickerson Field rhe Minuremen played o slip ond slide gome of foorboli or mid-field wirh Bosron Universiry. Ir ended 3-0, a 32-yard field goal by rhe rerriers ' Jeff Pelin being rhe only scoring. " I don ' r wonr ro moke excuses, " Pickett was saying, rain srill dripping off his soaked face 15 minures afrer rhe gome ' s end. " Bur we ployed rhe weorher rodoy, ond BU bear rhe weorh- er. " The UConn game followed rhe nexr week, bur rhe magic hod been dimmed. UMqss venred some of rheir frusrrorions or rhe expense of rhe Huskies. Pearson and Heyworth were up ro rheir old rricte. Pearson rushed for his season high, q 222-yard efforr, while Heyworth rambled for 110 himself, leading rhe Minuremen ro o 39-21 vicrory over UConn before 12,146 or Alumni Sradium. The Minuremen won rhe gome, bur losr rheir quorrerbock and coproin. Fontaine rook o helmer in rhe bock ond suffered a bruised kidney and a crocked verrebro, requiring hospirolizorion FOOTBN.L • KDOTBI LL • FOOTBf LL • f OC for nearly a monrh. Tri-coproin Fred Read broke an ankle and was sidelined for rhe remoining rhree gomes. Sophomore quorrerbock Dan Pecevich and back-up cenrer Victor Pizzotti srepped in and UMoss never looked bock. Ir wos obour o half hour afrer UMoss hod come from behind ro defeor Holy Cross 17-13 rhor Pickerr asked rhe medio ro srep ourside of rhe locker room for o few minures. For rhe firsr rime in four years UMoss would nor hove o Yankee Conference rirle. BU serried rhor when rhey defeored UConn in rhe losr minure on rhor some blusrery ofrernoon. Bur o cheer wenr up in rhe UMoss locker room anyway. The gome boll wos vored ro Fontaine, so o cheer wenr up. The losr Yankee Conference gome was o 17-0 win over New Hampshire; memorable only for rhe defensive efforr which rhe Minuremen rurned in before rhe Fomily Day crowd or Alumni. This losr gome said ir oil: ir was Bosron College, rhe boys from Chesrnur Hill who ger oil rhe norice, oil rhe ink, ogoinsr rhe boys from UMoss, rhe kids who scrope and fighr for everyrhing rhey ger. In rhe end, BC gor rhe bragging righrs — bur nor v irhour o fighr. The Minuremen foughr bock, and in rhe waning seconds, soid ro hell wirh o rie ond wenr for rhe win. The rwo-poinr conversion failed, and rhe papers and radios ond TVs were off ogoin, singing proises of rhe Eogles, while rhe scruffy kids from UMoss wolked bock ro rhe locker room wirh o 13-12 loss. A few rhings srood our rhis seoson: Heyworth scoring his one and only UMoss rouchdown in his finol gome ogoinsr BC; Pear- son soyng his offensive line, nor he deserved rhe UConn gome boll; rhe UMoss defense, ploying berrer rhon any defense in rhe norion; ossisronr coach Jim Reid doing flips in rhe mud and rain; cornerbock Max Jones dancing ofrer on inrerceprion; rri- coproin Bob Manning being named a Kodoh All-Americon. Bur norhing exemplified rhe season berrer rhon rhe lonely figure of Pearson as he sor on a denred, grey srool. " I guess we ' ll jusr hove ro live wirh ir, " he said " Wirh rhe roin ond oil rhor.

The Universiry of Mossochuserrs Marching Bond. The rwo hove become virruolly inseperoble. Hours of hard work hove ployed on imporronr role in rhe quoliry of rhe bond ' s performonces. 1980 wos o big yeor for rhe Minure- mon Bond, rmorked by several appearances on network relevision, porriciporion in Boston ' s Jubilee 050 Grand Parade, rhe first Northeast Pvegionol Music Bowl (hosted by UMoss and the Minutemon Bond), the band ' s first oppeoronce or o professional football gome, and the selection as THE collegiate bond to represent the Northeast in the 1981 Inougurol Porode. Throughout rhe season, appreciative and vocal crowds re- sponded to " The Power and Class of New England " wirh rousing ovations, somehow repaying the band ' s efforts multi- fold. The Boston Jubilee 050 Grand Porode followed the sea- son ' s first field show, September 20 vs. Villonovo, ond Dela- ware Store was in town the next Saturday. Bond members hod the first weekend in October off, but the next weekend started a schedule that kept the bond busy every weel ' end through November 22. The UMoss-Boston University football gome was the firsr rime the bond oppeored on live television, but it ' s doubtful that bond members or any fon who was or rhe gome will remember that small detail. Dubbed the " B.U. Monsoon, " some people were surprised when the bond lined up to moke its holftime oppeoronce. However, despite the adverse conditions, the bond managed to deliver o " sterling, although slightly damp " performonce. The monrh of November brought the University of Con- necticut and the Husky Marching Bond to UMoss, ond an unplanned (by UConn, anyway) appearance of the " UMoss Husky " . The Husky is, of course, the Connecticut moscot. But, it seems he was " misguided " by on ambitious group of UMoss bond members, and decided to defect. His oppeoronce in a UMoss r-shirt really disrressed some UConn fans, and porriculor- ly rhe UConn bond members, bur fortunately, o peaceful rerurn was negotiated before holftime. During rhe recording sessions that follow every field season, Presidenr-Elect Ronald Reagan ' s Inougurol Committee invited the bond to porricipote in the 1981 Inaugural Parade. With strong support from Chancellor Henry Koffler and the Alumni Association, the bond was able to porricipore. The Minuremon Bond wos rhe seventh unit in the firsr division of the Inaugural Parade. All the hard work really paid off here, as the " Power and Closs of New England " let it be known that Massachusetts and the Northeast were well re- presented. The porode, and participation in a special concert on the Capitol steps afterwords, mode a particularly exciting step into the notional limelight for rhe bond, ond capped on equally exciring season. -Eric Snoek 47 imr s SOCCCR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOC " I ' m glad ir ' s over, " senior fullback Scott Cooper said offer rhe 1980 University of Mossochuserrs men ' s soccer ream hod played rheir losr game of o disappointing season. Cooper was on rhe ream in 1978 v hen at one time they were 13th in rhe counrry and finished rhe season with a 12-5-0 record. He was on rhe teom in 1979 when they were 12th in New England with 7-5-2. Head coach Russ Kidd arrributed rhe losing season ro the youth on rhe team. " We had eight new srorrers, a whole new bacWield and a new goal keeper, " he said. Junior Tony M. Dios from Ludlow led all scorers wirh seven goals and four assists for 11 points. Tony G. Dios, high school ream mote (no relation) of Tony M. followed with four goals ond three assisrs. Ir was Tony G. who booted the boll into the net with merely o micro-second remaining in rhe gome, ro give rhe Minuremen a come-from-behind (2-1) victory over rhe Universiry of Vermonr midway rhrough rhe season. Earlier in that game, Tony G. hod tied the score at 1-1 off a pass from Tony M. The Minuremen started the season off with the Keene Store Kickoff Classic, winning one (Keene State) and losing one (Covis Elkins). They were shut out in the firsr two home battles, by Dridgeporr (1-0) and Southern Connecricur (4-0) and rallied their second win over Williams College in Williomstown. They got o break that afternoon when Tony M. scored the gome winner off o penalry shor, his second goal in the gome. Denny Walsh got his first goal as a vorsiry soccermon against Williams, giving UMoss a 3-0 lead before the Ephmen got their first and only goal. The two final wins come in front of the home town fans,- a 2-0 New Hampshire shut out in early October and a 2-1 win over Springfield in rhe season finale. Junior forword Rick Wosmund scored both in that season finale, the first coming or rhe holfrime buzzer ro tie the score or 1-1 and the second with 27:07 left in rhe game, to give Moss, the win. In addition to Cooper, coach Kidd will lose seniors Julie Avilo and John Thomas to groduorion and will try to build another winning team without them. -Donna Sullivan 50CCGR • SOCC€R • SOCCCR • SOCC€R • SOCCGR • SOCCGR • SOCCGR First Row: Kevin Flynn, Paul Suozzo, Dohrom Emoni-Zedoh, John Thomas, Jr., Morrhew Esreves, Drerr Olsher, Richard D.

They srorred in rhe foil of 1976 with o volunteer coach and 14 members who mer occasionally ro scrimmage. The fol- lowing yeor rhey posted an 11-2-1 record os a club. They hove culminated five years of building by hoving halfback Madeline Mongini named to the All-American first team, the only player from New England to make the first All American women ' s soccer squad. " Moddie " Mongini was nomed ro the team, at the close of rhe 1980 seoson, o season in which UMoss went 15- 3-1, induding 13 shutouts, ond finished third in the Eastern Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (EAIAW) Tournament. " The team was good but it was disappointing thot we didn ' t finish first or second. I thought we could hove, " first year heod-cooch Kolekeni Dondo said. Dondo, a UMoss grod who lertered in soccer and track, is the women ' s track coach ccer a t as well as the soccer mentor. He is responsible for a change in the Minutewo- men ' s strategy that resulted in their going 11-1 with ten shutouts during the final part of the seoson. " We switched the formation to give us more control over rhe midfield. After the change, no one scored a goal on us until going into the tournoment, " he said. Donda switched from a 3 for- ward-3 hQlfback-4 fullback formation to a 2-4-4 lineup. And after thot, they were unbearable, adding team after team to their scrop heap of shurouts. " We gove the other teams tough times. Not too many hove seen the 4-4-2. " The Minurewomen outscored their opponents 22-0 in the final stretch before the EAIAW ' s behind the consistent scor- ing of Mongini (9 goals and 5 ossisrs during the season) ond fullback Noncy Feldmon (13 goals), and the impenetrable gooltending of senior co-coptoin Kelly Tuller, who is cred- ited with oil 13 shurouts. A 2-0 win over Smirh College wos the dincher, putting the soccerwomen into the Easterns. The win gave UMoss a home field odvontoge in the first round of rhe tournomenr. Afrer that they closed the seoson with o 3-0 win over rhe Universiry of New Hampshire, the lost regular season gome for senior co-caproins Tuller and fullback Eloine Content. A Nino Holmstrom tolly at 20:17 in the firsr half, pushed UMoss inro the semifinals of the tournament with a 1-0 squeaker over rhe Universiry of Vermonr. The Minurewo- men hod losr ro UVM 1-0 during the regulor season and settled the score cutting the Catamounts from any further post-season ploy. Holmstrom and Natalie Prosser played hurr in rhor game and according ro Dondo, the injuries ore what held UMoss to a third ploce in the tournament. With 28 seconds left to ploy, the Universiry of Connecticut knocked the UMoss booters out of contention with the tolly that gave UConn o 2-1 victory and a berth in the finals. UMoss beat Harvard in the consolation round ro rake the third spot. The season was over ... but not before Dondo hod added o little to on organization rhar continues to grow. For the ' 81 seoson, Dondo expects his entire teom, with the exceptions of Tuller ond Contont, bock. " The whole contin- gent is coming bock and I ' m expecting a whole lot from them, " he said. -Donna Sullivan 50 it, i aMS% - ;, » ' 0:U.-V.-C ' £_ fJ Sfc i. -- XCGR • SOCC€R • SOCCGR • SOCC€R • SOCCGR • SOCC€R • SOCCCR • SOCCCP Top Row- Nino Holmsrrom, Deborah Pickerr, Moryonn Lombordi, Noralie Prosser, Sandra Flercher, Mary Crowley, Jacqueline Gaw, Polly Kaplan, Sracey Fllonis, Mory Szerelo, Elaine Conranr (Co-Copr.), Kalekeni Danda (Coach) Lower Row- Jane Marie Lojek, Angela Caouerre, Deborah Fine, Roxonn Donorini, Kelly Tuller, Madeline Mangini, Karhy Hourinhan, Deonna Denoulr 51 Cros s-Counrry Ter Coach Julie LoFreniere Record: 1-5-1 UM OPP UM 31 @ Dosfon College 28- 5 36 @ Harvard 23- 9 38 @ Springfield 21- 5 7rh Rutgers In v. 8 @ @N.Drun, 2 20 @ Smirh 39 + 5 1sr UConn Invir. 4 68 RHODE ISLAND (rie) 68- 6 68 VERMONT 29- 7 68 NEW HAMPSHIRE 66- 8 7rh New Englonds 3 9rh EAIAV @lnd.

Ir wos bosicQily o rebuilding year for rhe ream because of irs inexperience os four different freshmen played in rhe starring lineup or vorious times in the season. The loss of Sue Peters left o gaping hole in the teom ' s offensive production, Peters, who signed on to play professionally with rhe New Orleans Pride of rhe Women ' s Basketball League, wos no longer oround to provide her twenty-plus points a game average, pinpoint posses, or key steals when the ream needed the boll. In losing her to groduorion, the team lost a " secure port of the pro- gram " according to Ozdorski. Once ogoin ploying mognificienrly, rhough, was senior co- coptoin Julie Ready. Ready hod o simply awesome year, providing rhe leadership along w ' he other co-captain Gin- ger Legore, that had been provioc-d by Peters in posr years. Ready averaged 20.7 points per gome and 9.2 rebounds. Her 581 poinrs for rhe year gove her 1046 career points, purring her second on rhe all-rime UMoss scoring list behind Peters while her 257 rebounds gove her 831 over rhe three and a half years she wos or rhe school for leadership on rhe all-rime lisr. Among her occomplishmenrs were rhe nomination for rhe Wode rrophy for rhe best womon basketball ployer in rhe nation, MVP of the Syracuse Tournament, selecrion ro rhe EAIAW All-Region Division I ream, selecrion ro rhe Queen ' s and Providence All-Tourney reams, and rhe MVP oword for wom- en ' s boskerboll by rhe Mossochuserts Sporrs Club. This was o season rhor looked very promising for rhe Min- urewomen in rhe firsr two monrhs. They went 4-4 in De- cember ond rhen 8-3 in January when rhey played rhe toughest parr of rheir difficult schedule which included power- houses such OS Indiana, rhe Universiry of Virginia, East Carolina, Norrhwesrern, Temple, Georgetown, Syracuse and Monrdair Srore in rhe four rournomenrs rhey played. February was nor o good monrh, ro soy rhe very leosr. A heartbreaking loss or rhe hands of Springfield College in which UMoss lost the leod in the last seven minutes may hove hurr their confidence. Ir rook rhirreen days ond rhee more losses before rhey got bock a positive feeling, defeoting Central Connecricut ond then Southern Connecricur in -overrime, ro quolify for rhe Eastern Regionols. Key gomes of rhe season induded beoring Syracuse Universi- ry on irs home courr in rhe Syracuse Tournomenr, knocking off Princeron on rhe rood ofrer coming from fourteen poinrs down in o rremendous room efforr, ond o one poinr loss ro Indiono in o gome which borely slipped Through rheir fingers in rhe Queen ' s Tournomenr. There were several brighr spors emerging from rhis s el Ginger Legore played ro rhe besr of her obiliry, providing 9.2 poinrs and 7.6 rebounds o gome while doing oil rhe lirrle things well. Junior guard Sherry Collins leod rhe ream in ossisrs wirh 78 ond mode many o clurch sreol. Perhaps rhe biggesr brighr spor besides rhe gursy ploy of Ready ond Legore was rhe job of the four freshmen did. Forward Nodine Jackson was on inrimidaring force on rhe .

Coach Dick Gorber ' s " Gorillas " played exciring la- crosse all season long, combining on expolsive offense yvirh a righr defense. They opened up rhe seoon wirh their firsr-ever vicrory over a pernnially strong Cornell ream, 16-8. This vicrory begon a ren-gome winning srreak for rhe Minuremen, including sorisfying victories over Hobarr in overrime and Rurgers. Their first loss came ot the hands of Army, 14-10, The next game against Syracuse wos played before 8,000 screoming UMoss fans, the largest crowd ever ro witness a lacrosse game in New England. UMass gor off ro their hobiruolly poor starr, rroiling or the half by a 6-4 margin. Syracuse odded onorher goal early in rhe third quarter ro rake a rhree-goal lead before UMass ex- ploded. Junior Jim Weiler scored rhree srraighr goals 1:05 apart to tie the score, 7-7. Tri-coptoin Chris Corin followed with three srraighr rallies of his own as UMoss never looked back and rolled ro a 12-8 vicrory. Conrri- buting ourstonding defensive efforrs ro the victory were midfielded Roy Cozzi and rri-caprain defense- man Paul Kinnone who held Syracuse ' s leading scor- er ro one gool and on assist and their second leading scorer to no points at all. UMoss capped the reguor season wirh victories over New Hampshire and Dartmouth. They were ranked fourth in the final regular season notional poll which should hove given them the home-field advantage in the opening round tournainent game with ' Virginia. However, rhe NCAA commirree ruled rhot Doyden field was not acceptable ond did not give UMoss suffi- cient time to find an alternare playing sire. Thus, UMass troveled down to Virginio ro ploy on o wet ostrorurf field. The Minurmen conrorlled rhe gome in the early ploy, roking a 3-1 lead wirh rhe opporruniry ro hove token a big lead hod it not been for some key saves by rhe Virginia goalkeeper. Virginia come back wirh five goals on six shors ro rake o 7-4 leod at holffime. UMoss norrowed rhe lead to 8-6 in the third quarter bur that was OS close as they would get. Virginia reeled off four or five gools in o row en roure to a 16-12 victory, ending rhe season for UMoss. The 13 vicrories by UMass were rhe most ever. Victories over Drown, Dorrmourh, and Horvord gove rhe Minuremen yet gpther New England champion- ship. TIfie Minuremen attack unit of Weller, Corin, and Lee " Skip " Vosburgh set o notional scoring record by ottockmen. Weller ' s 62 goals (a UMoss record) pur him second on the oll-rime UMoss goal-scoring lisr wirh 118 while his 98 points (also o school record) put him third in career poinrs. Corin hod 49 goals and 35 assists for ;84 points, putting him fifrh on the all-time UMass points list. Vosburgh ' s 35 gools and 48 assists for 83 poinrs put him fifrh on rhe oll-rime gools lisr or UMoss, rhird in ossists with 100, ond second in points with 197. Midfielder Peter Schmifz, who missed four or five gomes wirh on injury, conrinued ro be one of rhe oursronding midfielders in rhe country. He was selected to the Division 1 All-Americo firsr ream. Paul Kinnone also shone on defense. Sophomore goalrender Chris Benedetto hod o fine overall season, stopping over sixty per cenr of shors on goal.

The staff ERA wos o whopping 5.77 os opposed ro on opponent ERA of 5.50. Thus, they were involved in mony high scoring gomes. Eorly in rhe season people did not pick the Minutemen to be thor good. However, rhe team quickly showed that they could play with any team in the nation by completing o successful 5-6 record in rhe highly competitive Sun-Lit Classic at Son Diego State. They then opened up their Eostern schedule wirh a split of a doubleheader with o Maine ream that would ploy in the College World Series. This was followed by a doubleheader sweep of Norrheastern and o win over American Internarional.

Chamber Music The opening classical music performances in the spring season at the University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center were Music from Marlboro. Formed in 1965 to provide touring and playing experience for young artists. Music from Marlboro has, according to the New York Times, become a national resource " as valuable as a national forest and should be under protection of Congress. " With Rudolph Serkin as its artistic director, the Ver- mont-based program has nurtured dozens of world-famous musicians. Nineteen-year-old pianist Cecile Licad, who per- formed during the Amherst concert, is one excit- ing example: she was recently honored with the Gold Medal Award from the Leventritt Foundation. The award was reinstated after a ten-year hiatus especially for her. Also appearing at the Fone Arts Center concert were Joseph Swenson, violin, Sarah Clarke, viola, and Rocco Filippini, cello. The Fine Arts Center was lucky to welcome the renowned chamber enseble. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, during Its first North Ameri- can tour. Composed of sixteen of the world ' s fin- est musicians. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is one of the most widely recorded ensem- bles in the world and thus is known to music lovers everywhere. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields was formed in 1959 when some of the principal players of the London Symphony Orchestra were given an opportunity to fulfill a long-held tradition- to play Baroque music in the Church of St. Martin in the Fields. Other superb players joined them and thus the Academy came into being. COLUMBIA AmW§ presents AQ DmY ofSAINT FTEDS WODLDS -: DECODDED : CHAMBER ODCHE Tm 78 On Wednesday, March 18, the audience of the Fine Arts Center was entertained by four talented young men from Japan. The Tokyo String Quartet started as students of the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. They formed as a quartet in 1969. In 1970, they played in two student competitions. The first was the Coleman String Quartet Competi- tion in Pasadena, California, in which they won first prize. Their second competition was in Mu- nich, during which they again won. Since then, the Quartet has toured and delight- ed many audiences, both in the United States and in Europe. Along with touring, the Quartet present- ly has residency at American University in Wash- ington, D.C., where they hold master classes. As a fitting concomitant to the Washington affiliation, the Corcoran Gallery has turned over to them a set of Amati instruments, on which they now perform exclusively. 79 PRODUCTIOnS. UPC, Union Program Council, provided the UMass community with a year of excellent enter- tainment. The shows are listed as they appeared at UMass. The students, of course, responded enthu- siastically to all of these shows and un derstandably so. These are musical programs put together by students with students in mind. Although UPC faced many budget cuts, as did many other stu- dent organizations, they managed to put together shows that appealed to the many diverse musical interests that the students hane.

He thrilled and delighted a large audi- ence at the Fine Arts Center. The audience re- sponded to the feelings tha t he put into his music and, like a mirror, he reflected the re- sponse by putting even more feeling into his music (if that is at all possible). It was like a spiraling staircase and Ray Charles brought the audience higher and higher. It was a perfor- mance that could only be termed excellent. 82 The International Orchestra series included an outstanding, although limited, selection of talent. Featured in this series were the Minnesota Or- chestra with conductor Neville Marriner (pictured on the previous page), Maurice Andre with the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra (pictured on the previous page and featured below), and the Czech Philharmonic, with conductors Vaclav Neu- mann and Zdenek Kosier (pictured on this page). This selection of orchestras provided entertain- ment throughout the entire school year. Also, the series was cosponsored with the University of Massachusetts Arts Council. Maurice Andre, " the reigning prince of trumpet music " , performed with the Wuerttemberg Cham- ber Orchestra at the Fine Arts Center on Friday, February 27. The program included two concerti for trumpet and orchestra, by Stolzel and Tartini. Soloists from the Wuerttemberg ' s string sections were also fea- tured in works by Vivaldi, Grieg and Respigbi. Maurice Andre, who has been responsible for popularizing many Baroque masterpieces, has won ten Grands Prix du Disque in the past ten years. He was the solo trumpet for L ' Orchestre Radio Televi- sion Francaise and during the same period was engaged by the Concert Orchestra of Lamoureux. More recently, Andre has performed under con- ductors Karl Richter, Herbert von Karajan, and Karl Bohm. He also holds a professorship at the Conser- vatoire de Paris.

The House, of- fered two performances at the University of Mas- sachusetts Fine Arts Center on March 4 and 5. Meredith Monk is one of the most influential choreographers of today. It has been said that " her theatre and dance are musical, her music is often theatrical, and her voice dances. " The Seattle Sun said: " Meredith Monk may change your definition, or at least expand your ideas, about music. " In addition to the preview of " Waltz " , the March 5 performance also included solo vocal music by Monk and performances of " Vessel Suite " and " Tablet " . " Vessel Suite " is drawn from a 1971 opera epic on Joan of Arc, while " Tablet " uses instru- ments and polyphony to retrace the evolution of Western music. The March 4 performance featured a music th- eatre dance performance of the " Plateau Series " . Eileen Blumenthal, writing i the Village Voice, com- mented: " The piece is a kind of symphony, fol- lowed by a solo sonata, presenting motifs of wom- en interacting with their environment, one an- other, and the male world . . with fear, tender- ness, hostility, calm acceptance, curiosity ... " In addition to the two performances, Meredith Monk and The House offered a series of workshops to five college students. - reprinted from Fine Arts Center Public Relations release.

A child prodigy, Bell Davidovich began her for- mal training at the age of 6 and her performing career at 9. in 1949, she won first prize in the prestigious Chopin Competition in Warsaw. She performed widely throughout Russia, including 38 consecutive annual appearances with the Lenin- grad outside the USSR, Her emigration in 1978 was followed by her American recital debut at Carne- gie Hall in October, 1979 — an event described by New York ' s Daily News as " The most eagerly awaited piano recital in many seasons " and one " that exceeded even the highest expectations. " The Fine Arts Center concert included Schu- bert ' s Sonata in B flat. Op. Posthumous and Four Ballades by Chopin, who has always been her fa- vorite composer.

Written by deaf playwright Shanny Mow and di- rected by deaf director Edward Waterstreet, the National Theatre of the Deaf ' s adaptation satirized the heroic myth. The Trojans war agains each oth- er in a make-believe football stadium and, accord- ing to the game plan of the gods, are destined to face off on the fifty fifty-yard line. The first act, or in this case, half, poked fun at the cult of the superhero, while the second showed the super- hero, Achilles, in his own struggle against fate. Throughout the play, modern-day humor leavened ancient Greek philosophy; " Mean Joe Achilles " , for example, was presented with a bottle of Coca Cola by an adoring fan. The Iliad, like other National Theatre of the Deaf productions, emphasized gesture, although the words were spoken by interpreters. According to founder David Hayes, " With signing, every part of the body works to inflect color, to tilt the words toward full emotional meaning. The national Theatre of the Deaf ' s appearance was being offered in co-operation with the Office of Handicapped Student Affairs. February 10 was also " Handicap Awareness Day " on campus. -Courtesy of the Fine Arts Center Office of Public Relations. JAZZ 94 95 The New Globe Theatre, a special group of ac- tors, brought to this University four very special productions during the season of 1980-81. They were: The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen, Candida by George Bernard Shaw, and As You Like It by William Shake- speare. All of these shows are classics and the perfor- mances provided made them even more memora- ble.

These specials appealed to varied audiences-, none were disappointed by the presentations. Marcel Marceau, " the world ' s greatest mime " , returned to UMass for the sixth consecutive year to perform at the Fine Arts Center on Saturday. February 21. 1981. Marceau. who feels he was a " born mime " , is one of the most widely- travelled stage personalities in the world today. His character, Bip. and such rou- tines as " The Cage " and " Walking Against the Wind " , have become international classics, while each year he creates new spaces for audiences to see as an artist creates new sculptures. Le Figaro, published in his native France, said of him recent- ly, " If you have not seen him, you must gO; if you have already seen him, you must return. " Marceau especially enjoys his tours of college campuses. In an interview with the Daily Collegian during his fifth sold-out appearance at the Univer- sity, he explained. " On the campuses, we have the greatest enthusiasm, the greatest energy, and the greatest expectations. " He did not let the Univer- sity down. -Courtesy of the UMass Fine Arts Center Publicity Department. ' .:.IjP 1 98 99 Student productions: UMass students doing what they do best and love best. Singing, dancing, acting, directing, writing, producing. They cover all facets of the world of performing arts. Included in the lineup for 1980-81 were: Jesus Christ. Superstar, Travesties diwd the UMass Danc- ers, to name only a few. All performances were enthusiastically received by their audiences. No- teably, Jesus Christ, Superstar was received very well by UMass students: after word got out con- cerning the preview and all shows were conse- quently sold out. Reviews ranged from " Terrific " to " Wonderful " to " Don ' t miss it, it was great! " Needless to say, the response was rather positive. UMass students continue to sing, dance, art, direct, write, and produce their hearts out, giving the best to the stage and to their fellow students. 100 IDICCaVIDWaVT YISIITS HJ HaVSS The Broadway series at the Fine Arts Center for 1980-81 included the shows: A Chorus Line, Danc- ing ' , Elephant Man, and Ain ' t Misbehavin ' . All of the shows were enthusiastically received and played to sold-out audiences. In fact, afternoon performances were added in order to accomodate the demand for tickets.

Used as a freak in a sideshow, he is ultimately taken to a hospital where he is treated like a hu- man being. However, by not interacting with peo- ple, he has retained his childlike innocence, as well as the ability to look at society with eyes clear of socialization. It is only when he enters the hospital that he is exposed to society in such a way to put constraints on him. The playwright, Bernard Pomerance, makes in- teresting comments on society through both John Merrick, the Elephant man, and Fredrick Treves, the doctor who befriends him. It is a story of society crushing the free spirit of a man when that is all he has. The intentions are good; the results are deadly. The Elephant Man is based on a true story of a man living in England during the Victorian era. The deformities mentioned earlier were suggested by body posture and the use of the actor ' s voice. The acting was outstanding by all of the performers. Is there any connecrion between Greek living and Southwest? Off campus housing ond Orchard Hill?

NE is a traditional appear- ing living area with nine dorms and a quad which is great for sunbathing, frisbee, Softball, and partying. I did survive my freshman year at UMass and am now a senior living off-campus. I am finding that I miss the community spir- it that was very evident in Northeast.

Outdated traditions and institutions, such as the mobbing of the Campus Center during Halloween, and the end of the Bluewall as we have known it, have been displaced by new values. Perhaps the most startling change of all as recorded by the Sociology department was the upheaval of marijuana and alcohol as the most common drugs on campus, replaced by an even more dangerous fix, l nown by its street name simply as " General Hospi- tal " . While the drug had been available for some time, heavy usage was limited to a few who had been addicted since childhood. But this addiction; known by the scientific name " Quartermaine-on-the-brain " proved to be more epidemic than the dreaded strain of " Eight oclockincalculiblowoffus. " Unlike most drugs which can be consumed at any time, " GH " is only avail- able at a certain hour, unless the addict uses a betamax stimulant. " GH " has become very accessable to the addicts, with the most common dispensary located in the bottom of the Campus Center, where in daily ritual, hundreds of GH fans pay homage to their gods and receive dispensation in return. What made the emergence of GH so dramatic was the openess of hundreds of GH addicts, who after spending years with their addiction came out of the closet and take pride in their hobby. Laughed at for years, they were the new social " chic " of 1980, beating Box Car Willie by a wide margin. This newfound boldness was exhibited at parties; the same people who only last year talked about Slim Whitman were now discussing the fate of Luke and Laura feverishly. Observers frequently noted the glazed look in their eyes as they babbled incoherently about the rushes they received from their latest fix. More and more people who overheard the conversation would join in, until finally the entire party stood there in a dazed state, chanting " GH . . . GH . . . GH. " Unsuspecting students fell prey to the growing menace. A frequent cry heard around campus was " I ' ll try it just once . . . These same formers aca- demic marvels could be found two weeks later in the bottom of the CC during he afternoon with the same glazed look in their eyes. University officials are at a loss to explain the phenomenon. Theories have ranged from sunspots to the demise of " Guiding Light " , but the popularity of ' GH increases in leaps and bounds. Addicts insist there is no peak to this trend, and for the time being, there is no reason no doubt them. The GH affliction seems to strike every, one, regardless of race, creed, color. Thousands are making no plans between the hours of 3 • 4 P.M., pushing little old ladies out of chairs, so that like the marijuana and alcohol addicts before them, they can sit in a corner, and take it all in. In the meantime, the Sociolo- gists who discovered this trend are still trying to reason out the most perplex- ing issue raised by the GH phenomenon namely, who did shoot J.R. anyway? David Cline s Ouartermaine-on-the brain- The General Hospital Craze 125 Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Soi Southwest: an interesting combina- tion of academia and suburbia. It is the largest living area on campus and the most intimate. Its size demands inti- macy; small groups of people band to- gether as common interests and di- verse opinions bring them closer to each other. This may sound odd, but after living in Southwest for three years, I still feel that although I know it, there are some qualities and aspects of South- west that are alluding me. Southwest is the living area that is best depicted by Billy Joel ' s song, " The Stranger " . Southwest is that person with many different faces. Each is tried on, and for those who see them, each is re- membered. Each mood of Southwest compliments and contradicts the oth- ers. Many people seeing the partying, the rowdiness, the craziness of 5500 people on one quarter square mile that is the foundation of Southwest. Anyone can see that, just come down on a weekend night- the entertain- ment is quite amusing. To really knbw the five towers and eleven low-rises, you must live there. Then you start to become familar with the quiet that exists: the horseshoe at 2A.M., the barbeque pits at sunset, sunrise over JQA. You also experience the anger and frustration of people shouting out windows at all hours of the night. You see the confusion as you go through the line at the DC or as you watch newcomers look for dorms. You see the intricacies of it as multitudes of people weave in and out along the walkways, blending with trucks, cars and frisbees- never bumping in to anything else, everyone carefully making a path of his or her own. You share love with others: a couple hold- ing hands in the DC, or with their arms around each other or quietly talking and kissing on the rocks as the sun sets. These are the moments when you realize that Southwest is everything you want it to be- and more. It can reflect all of your moods and still have some left over for the rest of its residents. it is these times that you realize how many people live in Southwest. There is no way to deal with the reality of 5500 students surrounded by con- crete and brick. At times, the dorm can even be too big to feel like home. There is a small group of friends to whom you are close that make South- west home. For me, it was my floor. We were a close-knit group - a family. We were all different, and we lived together comfortably, knowing each other and sharing mutual occurences on the floor. Southwest is also a place of learning. For, like Orchard Hill, Southwest is a residential college. Classes are taught in lounges and classrooms in the dorms. It give people the opportunity to literally live and learn. Any student from the university can participate in Southwest courses, but only the resi- dents can appreciate the luxury of getting up ten minutes before class and not worry about getting there on time because it is only two floors down from your room. In closing, I can only say that South- west reminds me of a beautiful wom- an, pleasant to look at and full of sur- prises and mysteries. She is intelligent, unexpectedly insightful, moody, motherly. She has personality; she is loving and yet cold. Southwest is more than just buildings that can be seen from as far as Holyoke- it is an opportunity to learn. Most people take Southwest at face value, some of us get to know it. Somehow, though, 1 don ' t think anyone could ever know Southwest completely- it ' s too com- plex, too mysterious, too big and too intimate to ever see and hear and touch and experience all that South- west is and all it has to offer. west Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Southw€ 127 Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwes ' 128 Evening Evening Evening Evening Evening Evening ' r- ' ■■?

Total membership ranges from 12-75 with each chapter developing leadership, communication skills and the formation of lasting friendships. The sororities are governed by the Panhellenic council with an executive board comprised of elect- ed women from the eight chapters. The goals of Panhellenic are to increase awareness within the sys- tem involving women ' s issues, social situations and cooperation among the chapters. In an expanding and concerned university com- munity there are numerous areas that captivate the talent, energy, creativity and dedication of sorority women.

Fraternity living is for people who wish to become involved and to pursue a variety of interests while in college. There are 15 fraternities on the campus including local, na- tional, and one coed group. All chapters have different values and interests, but share the same bond of brotherhood. Fraternity involvement is not just a collegiate experience but extends beyond graduation, with the organization of alumni groups. Alumni are an important part of chapter functioning. The Fraternity experience can be the most rewarding and influencing living experiences of college. 137 A eekend Weekend Weekend Weekend Weekend We 138 end Weekend Weekend Weekend A eekend Weekei 139 )ff Campus Off Campus Off Campus Off Campus Off Car It never quite hits you until you put your signature on the lease. Until then, it was just one of your wildest fantasies. You stopped counting how many times you were over at a friend ' s apartment, green with envy because you wanted a place you could call your own. No parents ask- ing what time you got in last night, no one to scream when you light up a joint in the living room, no one to tell you to finish your vegetables at dinner time. Hell, you don ' t even have to serve vegetables once you have your own place. it seems so simple, too. All you need is your name down on that precious piece of paper. September comes and the UHaul is carefully packed. You ' re just bringing up clothes and the stereo. (Ever notice now helpful parents are when it comes to packing the stereo?) But now there ' s a bed (Grandma ' s), a dresser (next door neighbor ' s), and kitchen utensils (Lusterware, as seen on T.V.). You drive up to the door, proudly hold- ing the key and the lock is quickly and successfully mastered. With a great burst of excitement, you open the door of your new Camelot, and the dream ends. Your place is a mess. The previous ten- ants, in a hurry to leave, never bothered to clean. Nor did the landlord, for that matter. You look around, trying to get an idea of where to start when your parents dump all of your stuff on the front lawn and wave good-bye. It ' s all yours. You spend two days in S and M.

UMass students will never forget the day school closed be- cause of a water shortage. On September 4, 1980 at noon. Chancellor Henry Koffler de- clared UMass closed and or- dered 10,400 dormitory resi- dents to evacuate. Soon the streets of Amherst were over- flowing with bus convoys, packed cars, and hitchhikers going home. The University closing and resulting mass exodus need not have occurred. School officials knew that the town water sources in Pelham were low due to an unusually dry summer. The new well being dug in Am- herst ' s Lawrence Swamp area wasn ' t completed yet. The Uni- versity probably shouldn ' t have opened at all. The key event of the water crisis occurred on Tuesday, September 2nd. A low water alarm went off in the Amherst fire station indicating the water towers were almost empty. Whoever was there ig- nored the alarm. Town Man- ager Louis Hayward didn ' t know of the critical situation until 34 hours later-6:45 Wednesday night. He found out too late. Southwest and Or- chard Hill were the first areas to be waterless, and by midnight 25 dormitories were dry. Dormitory bathrooms were useless forcing some residents to take " nature walks " . Hot, humid weather kept everybody sticky. The shores of nearby Puffer ' s Pond were full of stu- dents washing up. Those who got the last hot showers were the envy of their neighbors. The next morning, word spread fast that school had closed, (even national wire ser- vices picked up the story.) Ad- ditional buses were secured from Peter Pan Lines in Spring- field and students had to wait in long lines to get on one. Those with cars gave friends rides home. By 7:00 P.M. the campus was deserted. School would re-open on Sunday. By then, enough water could be brought from Hadly, Amherst ' s water-rich neighbor. Students returned to school and town officials apoligized and promised the students re- imbursement for the time spent out of their rooms. The Law- rence Well was completed in October, and officials are confi- dent that a repeat performance will never occur. -Ed Wiles ' i m 1 ■• 1 ,...,,i r-:-.. [ : " ■ WP Hi |y. -- V. UMASS VS. CAPITOL HILL 144 While Washington D.C. was still reeling from the effects of the November election, a group of about 40 UMass students de- scended on the nation ' s capitol to lobby for increased financial aid funding. The group, which included many members of a course in the legislative process, political science 305, spent two days and nights on capitol hill talking to legislators and their aides. Their goal was to have con- gress provide more money for financial aid programs. Soon after the semester started, the Financial Aid Office had sent out letters telling them that their awards had been cut somewhat. The reason for the cuts was that legislation had made more students eligible for money, but additional funds had not been provided. The students met, both col- lectively and individually, with Massachusetts Senators Paul Tsongas and Edward Kennedy. Representatives Silvio Conte, Edward Markey, Brian Donne- ly and others. Nearly all the senators and representatives on the appropriations committee were contacted, either personal- ly or through their aides, as were most members of the Massachusetts delegaion. The bill to provide funds for financial aid programs was hung up due to differences be- tween the house and senate, and the matter was placed on " con- tinuing resolution " or a main- tenence of last year ' s funding of $4.2 billion. The students want- ed an additional $1.8 billion to make up for the additional stu- dents eligible, but legislators were reluctant to provide the funds. While the lobbying effort was not directly successful, both the students and law- makers said they felt that they had made some sort of impact and that their voices were heard. " 1 learned more in these two days than I ever would in a classroom type situation. I feel like I know how politics works and how I can work in it, " said class member Christine Gillis. " Although we didn ' t change history, we made an impact, " said Fran Bisonette, a junior fi- nance major. " It was a good learning process and we could do a lot more in this area. Our potential is unlimited to orga- nize around this issue. Students should realize that these issues affect them. You can have an impact, you just have to take jj the initiative. " % Professors Grady and Apo- daca, who accompanied the stu- dents, said that they were hap- py with the results of the trip and with the way the students handled the situation. " They (the students) realized that the government is open and willing and that they can make a difference. They learned they don ' t have to protest, " Grady said. " I really was extremely pleased with the results of the trip, " said Professor Apodaca, " I felt the students worked hard and were a lot more successful than people realized. We defi- nitely need more student in- volvement, especially if it is as «. organized as this. " HI Soon after the group returned from Washington, the decision was made to continue the fi- nancial aid fight. The group, calling itself SAFA, Students Advocating Financial Aid, will continue to organize around the issue and possibly return to the capitol for further lobbying ef- forts. -Ed Levine • Yes, there was more than one shutdown, that is. It was known as the " Halloween Shut- down " , and it too lasted only one weekend; October 30, 31, and November 1. No guests were allowed in the dorms, se- curity was doubled, and the Campus Center was closed. That ' s right: closed, empty, DE- SERTED. That was probably the scar- iest scene of the entire evening, considering it had almost be- come a ritual for thousands of students and guests to literally innundate the Campus Center and celebrate Halloween with a massive party. The tradition has been broken, unfortunately because too much of the Uni- versity ' s property had been broken in the past. Reports of vandalism, rapes, and just plain unrulyness during past Hal- loween weekends forced the University Administration to think twice about holding the festivities this year. So, on Oc- tober 7th, Vice Chancellor George Beatty confirmed the administration ' s decision to close the campus on Halloween weekend. Shortly thereafter, residents in at least one of the nearby apartment complexes were in- formed that parties held on Halloween Weekend would be restricted. Guest lists were re- quested, and only twenty-five guests were permitted to attend. Security was also tightened greatly. The shutdown was not in- curred to cramp our style. Au contrare, it was for " our own good " (so to speak). We were attracting too many wierdos, too many people who were hell- bent on causing trouble just be- cause it was Halloween. (Was this our fault?) Apparently, stu- dents and guests alike were be- ing subjected to the possibility of injury when they attended the large, rowdy party in the Campus Center, and that is just too dangerous for everyone in- volved. We needed the shut- down to keep all these people out, and avoid problems within the University and with the me- dia. Well, this year, we proved to the administration, the media, and to ourselves that we could enjoy Halloween without hav- ing problems. There were nu- merous small parties on and off campus, however none present- ed problems as we ' ve had in the past, and thanks to the campus fraternities and sororities, there wasn ' t even a clean up problem for Physical Plant to deal with. Perhaps we needed to break our tradition, perhaps it was necessary to be strict this year, and keep the wierdos in check, as long as the students who be- long here have a good time . . . 145 CAMPUS CONSTRUCTION Tifff PLUSES . The Campus Center Board of Governors (BOG) voted unani- mously last April to " authorize preparation " of a plan to in- crease student input into pro- posed renovations to the Uni- versity Store, tentatively sched- uled to begin during the sum- mer of ' 81 ' . The authorization of the plan was approved as a result of an original motion passed by the board on February 26, which set up a " formal procedure " for the board ' s involvement in Cam- pus Center Student Union ren- ovations costing over $5,000. The proposed renovations to the University store are esti- mated to cost around $120,000. Greg Volpe Reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian A new system of emergency telephones has been installed at UMASS. The five emergency tele- phones, painted bright yellow and marked with red and white signs, are intended to give in- stant access to University police by lifting the receiver. When lifted, a bell will ring at the po- lice switchboard and they will know the location of the emer- gency. It is anticipated that po- lice will be able to respond to emergency calls within three minutes. Benjamin Fieman, director of the four year old Campus Land- scape Improvement Project (CLIP) said the goal of the pro- gram is to make the campus grounds physically attractive. Much of the planning for CLIP is done by interns from Landscape Design and Park Administration Department, with the actual construction done by Physical Plant employ- ees. Fieman said the work is go- ing slow because landscape is a low priority for Physical Plant. Fieman believes that an effi- cient landscape design will eliminate dirt paths and bring out the beauty of the campus. Ken Ross Reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian fllE T«WEB The summer of 1982 is the target date for completion of work on the problem plauged library, according to a written statement from Chancellor Henry Koffler. At that time, the library will resume full service to the University. In a report submitted to the University by Simpson, Gu- mertz, and Hegar, an engineer- ing consulting firm from Cam- bridge, the firm outlined what had to be done on the tower li- brary. Problems with brick veneer on the structure, forced Univer- sity officials to close the library last year. " The awarding of con- tracts for the repair work will be made by this winter, " said Koffler. Internal alterations for the li- brary will be completed by the spring of 1982. Although the University was appropriated $2.5 million for the work by the State Legisla- ture, some uncertainties still re- main about the actual costs for the repairs to the masony ve- neer on the library. " The Goodell library, pro- vided the main library service to UMASS since the close of the library, will serve the Universi- ty in this capacity until repairs to the tower are completed, " Koffler ' s statement said. Richard Talbot, director of Goodell, said, " When the tower library is repaired, Goodell will cease to function as the main library. The library will take on functions similar to the ones it provided before the close of the University Library. " Greg Volpe Reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian 146 ... AND MINUSES Entomologists at UMASS used natural preditors instead of insecticides to rid their quar- ters in Fernald Hall of insect pests. Professors Roy Vandriesche and Joseph Elkinton plan to de- ploy pinhead-sized wasps to attack the brown-banded cock- roaches that inhabit the build- ing. The wasps attack cock- roach egg cases. The researches explained that they can ' t use or- dinary insecticides to kill cock- roaches in the building because they might kill the insect popu- lations used for research as well. While they are busy rid- ding the building of cock- roaches, the researches also have launched a study on how to control a " wild population " of cockroaches by natural means. The first step of their study, they said, is to assess what the natural population of cock- roaches is in the building so that they will be able to deter- mine how effective the tiny wasps are in cockroach control. This involves capturing cock- roaches, putting identifying numbers on them, and releas- ing them again. This capture- recapture process will be re- peated over a period of weeks until a mathematical estimate of the size of the cockroach population can be determined. The Library, South College . . . Now Bartlett? The University of Massachu- setts has requested its Board of Trustees chairman to ask the State Bureau of Building Con- struction for a solution to the problem of loose bricks on the facade of Bartlett Hall. Trustees Chairman Joseph Healy plans to ask the BBC to analyze the problem, recom- mended a solution, and move to repair the building which houses classrooms and aca- demic offices. The request will follow a rec- ommendation by Loomis and Loomis of Windsor, Conn, that immediate repairs be made. University spokesman Ar- thur Clifford said estimates for the repairs run from $100,000 to $600,000. -Paul Basken -reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian CAMPif »ESTBVCft«H Campus police said last De- cember they would investigate the destruction of a memorial commemorating the deaths of six Kent and Jackson State stu- dent demonstrators, which was located on the north side of the campus pond. Catherine Clabby reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian LIBRARY FLOODED A broken water main in the 28 story main library at the University of Massachusetts forced officials to close the structure. The pipe broke while the sev- en year old facility was closed, flooding the basement level. News Bureau director Arthur Clifford said " just metal fa- tigue " caused the pipe to fail. He added no books or research materials were located in the flooded areas of the library. He stressed that the flooding is not related to past structural problems with the building. James F. Mahoney reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian 147 A Chapter In The History Of S.G.A. In October, the student gov- ernment began the annual pro- cess of choosing members of the Undergraduate Student Senate. The event traditionally draws little attention, and is hardly noticed by the student body as a whole. In the fall of 1980, however, the elections were noticed and the controver- sy which ensued divided people in all areas of the University. Weeks before the elections, a group of students from various organizations and backgrounds got together to form a coalition to represent their needs. Calling themselves the Progressive Stu- dent Alliance, the group began running members for the sen- ate and seemed to pick up much support with an effective, grass-roots organization. Shortly before the elections, about thirty other students on the ballot for commuter seats, who were not members of the PSA, began to worry about their own futures. So, to coun- teract the strength of the PSA the candidates began to distrib- ute stickers, bearing the names of most of the non-PSA candi- dates. The stickers, voters were told, were to be affixed to the ballots and handed in. The trouble began just before the ballots were tabulated when Diane Mueller, chair of the sen- ate Governmental Affairs Com- mittee, announced that the stickers were invalid markings and ballots containing them would not be counted. State law, Mueller said, prohibits sticker votes for candidates whose names ' already appear on the ballot. The " sticker can- didates " disagreed, arguing that state law does not pertain to student elections. As the ballots were being counted in Dickinson Hall, and as it became clear that the PSA had easily won the election, Mueller changed her mind and announced that the sticker votes would be counted. As the candidates loudly argued (at one point getting so loud that they drew the attention of offi- cers in the nearby UMass police station) the counting continued and, ultimately, the PSA had scored a big victory. But the controversy had not ended. The Senate Coordinat- ing Committee, seeing the in- consistencies in the election, overturned the election results. The same week, however, the full senate overturned the Co- ordinating Committees find- ings, and promptly seated the new senate. Shortly after the senate ' s de- cision, several people filed suits in the student courts seeking to invalidate the elections on the grounds that Mueller should not have made any decisions since she, too, appered on the ballot as a PSA candidate. Several weeks later, after many hours of stormy and heated court action, a student court at the very end of the fall semester, announced that it could not decide the case, but did issue an injunction, barring all students elected from serv- ing in the senate. A new trial was ordered to begin in the spring. The case went to " the tribunal in March. Yet, as the semester came to a close, no decision was announced. Most of the people involved in the case were set to graduate and the whole issue appears to be moot.

The PVTA; Pioneer Valley Transit Authority, has seen to it that I, as a resident in this val- ley have been able to get to classes, to get to off campus jarties, to see the mall, Slorthampton, and Mt. Sugar- oaf. The best part of it all, is that it didn ' t cost me a cent. The fare for most UMASS students is paid for from our student ac- tivity fee, so whether or we ride the bus or not, we pay for it ' s service long before we ever ar- rive on campus. The PVTA is one of the lar- gest transit sytems in the world, serving the entire Pio- neer Valley. There is now a sub- sidary U Mass Transit System with at least 32 buses on cam- pus and over 140 workers. Re- cently, 12 handicap buses were acquired to further the service, and special drivers are trained to run them. There are at least six routes running all week long, and each runs for at least 12 hours day. Judging from the cleanliness and quality of the entire sys- tem, it is no small wonder to me that so many people are not only using the bus, but are con- stantly wondering when the last one came and the next one is coming. -Contributing Editor. The " ANNIE HAULER " , a bus boarded at the Campus Center and at Southwest, stopped transporting UMASS students to the Hampshire Mall on November 9, 1980. The effect of the bus ' s dis- continuance on business is var- ied. Arlene Marcheselli, man- ager of The Lodge, said sales had dropped " a little " . The " Annie Hauler " was a " conve- nient means of transportation and free, " she said. An employee of Walden Books, John Otis said that the bookstore ' s business had not been affected. Lisa Mascis of Tagway Shoe store also said her place of employment had not been adversely affected. " The kids can get here one way or another. If the PVTA (Pioneer Valley Transit Author- ity) were cut off, I ' m sure we ' d feel it, " Mascis said. The PVTA added stops near the shopping center on the Amherst-North- ampton route after the free bus . . THERE GOES was cancelled. Dick Allen, manager of JC Penny, said it is hard to access the impact of the " Annie Haul- er " . The mall ' s overall business has been improving due to mat- uration, Allen said. The bus, which had originally been part of a promotion, had become too expensive, he said. In 1978, when the mall opened and the free bus was introduced, gaso- line was approximately 58 t: a gallon, Allen said, " naturally we would be tickled to death if we had it, but I understand the decision to discontinue it, " he said. -Melissa Galagher 149 spring Concert Becomes Community Day " Sorry, but no food, drink, cans, containers of any kind, or green socks will be allowed into the stadium. " That ' s the way the advertisements for " Com- munity Day " ran this year. Gone is the heyday of Spring Concert. Gone are the times when students planned for weeks the ways in which they would get their picnic lunches together and smuggle in beers for " Spring Concert " , the one day a year when the entire uni- versity could get together, for- get the rest of the world, and simply enjoy themselves. Nev- er again will names like " Great- ful Dead " and " Allman Broth- ers " be seen on the program for the spring event. " Community Day " is the cul- mination of Community Week for the Amherst-Hadley area, where in the past. Spring Con- cert was set apart as the only day when the entire student body from the five-college area could get together. Not only has the entire purpose of the concert changed, but so many restrictions have been placed upon the event that, as Sopho- more Roni Smith describes it, " Spring Concert has become Spring Headache. " Only 6,500 people attended this year ' s low-key event. In contast to Spring Concerts of the past two years, when atten- dence reached 30,000, there were no arrests and few other problems of any nature. Although performers Bonnie Raitt, John Hall, and B.B. King gave a top-rate show, few peo- ple feel as though they missed anything important. Senior Caren Troia summed it up when she commented, " things are tough when you can ' t even have a picnic lunch while you listen to the music. BANXKD: CO-FJ) BATHROOMS Dormitory bathrooms at UMass, many of which have been co-ed since 1971, were turned into single-sex facilities at the beginning of fall semes- ter 1981. Marjorie Lenn, the director of residential life, sent a memo to dormitory staff members last February stating that the change was brought about by increasing concern among par- ents and students " who are dis- turbed by the sharing of hereto- for ' private space ' ! " Lenn ' s memo also stated that the Massachusetts State Plumb- ing Code requires separate toi- let facilities although it does not prohibit coed bathrooms. Under the proposed policy, in dormitories which have two bathrooms, one will be for men and the other will be for wom- en. Where there is only one bath- room on a floor, it will be de- signed for either male or female use. Men or Women who live on a floor where there is an op- posite sex bathroom will have to go to another floor. Accord- ing to the memo, state regula- tions require that a bathroom may not be more than one floor from a person ' s room. In a single-sex dorm, visi- tors of the opposite sex will be required to use the dorm ' s public facilities. The memo stated that dorms in the Northeast Residential Area and the highrise dorms in Southwest will present the greatest problems in imple- menting a new policy because they have a single bathroom on each floor. The low-rise dorms in South- west and dorms in Central, Or- chard Hill, and Sylvan Residen- tial Areas would be simpler to change to adhere to the policy because the buildings have more than one bathroom on each floor, the memo stated. The Daily Collegian 150 STUDENTS FIGHT BUILDING OF NEW CANDY COUNTER Organized student protests are mounting against the 47,000, newly renovated mini store in the Student Union lob- by as it nears completion. The Student Coalition for Educational Research and Ad- vocacy, (SCERA), has set up a table across from the renova- tion worksight and are collect- ing signatures for a petition. They are making the following demands: that the Student Union Mini Store be made accessable to handicapped peo- ple; that the mini store be stu- dent controlled and student op- erated; that all revenue received be controlled by students; that all renovations over $5,000 within the Campus Center Stu- dent Union complex be decided upon from both the Graduate and Undergraduate Student Senates. SCERA ' s dissatisfaction stems from the fact that the Board of Governors never took a vote to approve renovating the candy counter into the mini store. SCERA member Arvid Muller described other projects which he felt were deserving of $47,000. " Just look at the ceiling its falling apart, " said Muller. " We have leaky ceilings and electri- cal problems which are a fire hazard. This mini store is an incredible slap in the face to students. " The mini store, which was supposed to be completed to- day, went under contract on September 6, 1980. The plans as they were originally presented to the Board of Governors, a student group which overs ees the Campus Center Complex, proposed the construction of a sweet shop to be located across from the University Store. The proposal was rejected as it stood. The BOG never did ap- prove the construction of the mini store. Another protest group, com- posed of 40 UMass students has filed a complaint in Hampshire County Superior Court claim- ing that the Board of Trustees illegally approved the renova- tions of the student union mini store and raised residence hall costs. Campus Center Director William Harris described the goal of the new store as offering a much nicer atmosphere and being an overall improvement over the candy county. Abramoff, however, said she agree that changes are needed for a better liason between ad- ministration and students. reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian 2 18 81 -Debbie Sparks 151 SPEAKERS D.V.P. has brought us many challenging speakers, ones that many of us will not soon forget. Here ' s a small sampling . . . G. GORDON LIDDY On September 23rd, 1980, controversial personality G. Gordon Liddy visited the Fine Arts Center at UMass to kick off his national lecturing tour. Liddy ' s history includes a stint with the F.B.I, and a top post in the Nixon Administration where he directed the famous EUsberg and Watergate break- ins. He was sentenced to jail but was commuted by Presi- dent Carter. Because of his past, many students objected to his presence on campus. The Dis- tinguished Visitors Program invited pacifist Daniel Ellsberg to speak later in the semester to hear the other side. Liddy delivered a strong speach which included a cri- tique of American weaknesses and an overview of Washington behind closed doors. Students were able to ask questions and Liddy fielded them brilliantly in his autheri- tative speaking style. When asked about national security he said the underlying cause of U.S. weakness is the people ' s il- lusion of their power that one finds nowhere else. After the lecture Liddy ex- pressed surprise at the amount of respect given him. He noted that the student today is not as rebellious as a few years back. Student reactions ranged from " a genious " , to " he ' s a fascist " . -Ed Wiles DICK GREGORY Comedian and social activist, Dick Gregory appeared at the Student Union Ball Room on Nov. 6th, 1980 to speak to a crowd of 900 students and fac- ulty members about his inter- pretations of social problems: Social or Anti-Social? Although the prospective to- pics of concern included the KKK, the Nobel Peace Prize, the Superpowers vs. Islam, etc., they were more like tools used to introduce Gregory ' s main theme, the CIA and their role in the government. As soon as Gregory stepped to the podium, he began analyz- ing matters with his witty fer- vor. " This is a dingy old room. It looks like a place where Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan should spent the rest of their lives, " he said. The crowd could have contin- ued at this pace for an extended time. However, almost as sud- denly as he began, and to the surprise of the crowd, Gregory stopped laughing and said in a low voice, " there ' s a cold day in hell when truth has to be invali- dated by ignorance. " " You let the CIA topple ev- eryone else ' s government, why not let them come and topple yours? By now the audience was hushed and attentive, while wondering what he was leading to. Gregory claimed that the election was the CIA ' s way of moving George Bush, former CIA director into the presiden- tial seat. n He said. It ' s not Ronald Rea- gan, it ' s George Bush. It was the CIA before, and its the CIA now, " The CIA pulled one of the biggest ripoffs in American history. They are in the process of taking over the government and there is a pistol upside your head, induced into your sub- conscience ' s mind garden. " Gregory said that, just like John F. Kennedy, his Ijrothers, Martin Luther King, and Mal- colm X, Reagan too would be a victim of the CIA hit list. He also included that the individ- ual who will be blamed for the assassination will likely be a student. Gregory entered the enter- tainment field in 1961 as a comedian and used his talent to give benefits for civil rights groups, peace groups, and hu- man rights groups. At 49, the outspoken man is known as a recording artist, po- litical analyst, critic, author, ac- tor, social satirist and philos- opher. -Kimberly Green 152 GEORGE MCGOVERN Former South Dakota Sena- tor George McGovern warned a crowd of over a thousand last March in the student union ballroom of the threat to the na- tion by the New Right and the policies of President Reagan. McGovern said the highly organized assault on the sena- tors and representatives by the Moral Majority posed a threat to both the Nation and religion. The new right ' s use of super- ficial arguments and influence in the religious realm to further their own political dogma must be met by the clear-thinking American, McGovern said. Being one of the Senators de- feated by the New Right ' s cam- paign, McGovern said he will use his time out of office to work on a new organization called Americans for Common Sense (acs). The ACS will use the New Right ' s tactics of direct mail fund raisers and the use of the media to counter attacks against liberal office holders targeted by the New Right. McGovern also condemned President Reagan ' s policy to- ward El Salvador as the same old arguments used before the Viet Nam war. Reagan ' s proposed educa- tional cuts were also attacked by the former Senator who called them a threat to the qual- ity of education in the United States. McGovern said the liberal defeat of 1980 may be a good thing by giving the public the chance to test conservatism and allowing liberals time to find better answers to the same old issues. Neither party had solutions that were satisfactory he said. McGovern cited the fact that half the population refused to vote as proof of this. The Senator also questioned the conservative policy of dere- gulation of government when they were deciding issues such as abortion. - Brian Sullivan - reprinted from the Massachusetts Daily Collegian ABBIE HOFFMAN Abbie Hoffman, the 1960 ' s " Yippie " leader and nationally prominent anti-Vietnam war activist appeared at the UMass Fine Arts Concert Hall on Feb- ruary 18, 1981. Hoffman, 43, a Worcester na- tive, surrendered himself last September after living " under- ground " for more than six years. Arrested in 1974 for allegedly selling cocaine to an undercover FBI agent, Hoffman jumped bail and went into hiding. When he surfaced in Septem- ber, Hoffman revealed that he had been living on Wellsey Is- land in Upstate New York, pos- ing as a writer and playing a leadership role in a drive to save the St. Lawrence River from a planned dredging operation. As " Barry Fried " , Hoffman lived with his girlfriend, former model Johanna Lawrenson, and his 9-year-old son. He testified before congressional commit- tees in Washington and re- ceived letters of commendation from New York Gov. Hugh Carey for his river conservation efforts. Hoffman has also re- vealed that he has encountered numerous old acquaintences while a fugitive, but those peo- ple never recognized him after he had undergone surgery and grown a beard. Last September, Hoffman surfaced to tell his story, face the drug charges, return to the political scene and lecture on College Campuses. Hoffman first gained national promi- nence in the 60 ' s during the height of the anti-Vietnam war effort. A student leader, Hoff- man became leader of the Yip- pies, speaking out for its poli- cies and participation in the war. -Ed Levine Massachusetts Daily Collegian 153 UMASS STUDENTS: DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST? Sixty Union members at the Amerst Nursing Home on Uni- versity Drive went on strike on September 23rd, 1980 to ask the management " for higher wages, for retroactive pay, and for the right to retain a Union shop, " according to the Daily Colle- gian. After four months of ne- gotiations, the non-profession- al staff workers walked off of their jobs and onto the picket lines in front of the Nursing Home. Two days later, the UMASS Student Senate allocated $470.00 to the support of these strikers, and three days later, they were joined on their line by several UMass students. Although some people may think that UMass students of all people should know how to stage a peaceful protest, they were met with reports of stu- dent arrests for tresspassing, interferring with employees, and disorderly conduct. The strike only lasted five days, but seven UMASS students faced trial on March 16th for charges ranging from destruction of property to assault and battery on a police officer. None of the 60 original strik- ers was hurt or arrested during the protest, so how did the stu- dents become involved? At a Student Senate Meeting held on September 24th, money was allotted for videotaping the strike, and strike organizer Richard Spencer solicited stu- dent support. Many students answered Spencer ' s plea and went to the picket line, while others went simply to exhibit their spirit of community sup- port for the Union. People who started out trying to help the Nursing Home workers, wound up getting into fights, and caus- ing problems by illegally enter- ing the home with non-striking workers. Fourteen of these same " concerned " students were arrested, and seven of them were fined for their ac- tions at the Nursing Home. The five days of peaceful, and not-so-peaceful picketing re- sulted in a new contract for the workers, calling for a $1.15 wage increase over two years, retroactive pay to July 1st, a two day increase in sick days, and an agency fee. Obviously, this is of great advantage to the workers, but I ' m interested in knowing what good this whole commotion did for the students here at UMass that got arrested and fined for their cause. 154 TO GRADE, OR NOT TO GRADE? THAT IS THE QUESTION. The Faculty Senate defeated by a 33-25 vote a motion to change the pass fail system so that only grades of C or better be recorded as a P. About 100 students present broke into spirited applause when the vote was taken. Proposals to refer the motion back to the committee and to ammend the motion to permit C D ' s and D ' s to be recorded as a P with the written permission of the instructor, was defeated earlier. SGA treasurer Rich Goldman said over 2,000 students signa- tures had been collected in less than 24 hours in support of the present pass fail system. Harry Schumer, chairman of the Academic Matters Council (AMC) last year when the coun- cil developed the motion, said there was no doubt that the stu- dents had an effect on the vote. In a report, the AMC said a change in P F was directly or indirectly by the data received from the registrar ' s office indi- cating that students who select the pass fail option tend to get a greater proportion of CD ' s and D ' s than those who take courses on a graded basis. The AMC claims that a lack of student effort is mainly to blame for the lower student grades. Goldman said he was " insult- ed by the implication that stu- dents neglect their academic re- sponsibilities. The statistics don ' t show me how pass fail is being abused. " The statistics used in the re- port are comparisions of grades of students who took a course P F and students who took the course for a grade. Lower divi- sion French, rhetoric, math, botany, and sociology courses were chosen. Goldman questioned the va- lidity of the statistics, citing as faults a narrow sampling size, the fact that the courses exam- ined were all freshman level courses, and the fact that the statistics don ' t show how many students had a P changed to a grade to help their average. -Steve Daly " Parle Vous Francais? " " dHabla Ud. Espanol? " " Can You Speak English? " Although most of us can speak English to some degree, many of us need to broaden our knowledge of other cultures by learning a second language. That is probably why there is a requirement for all students in the college of arts and sciences (CAS) at this University to take four semesters of a language. In the past, all students in CAS took the courses to fulfill this requirement, but as of April 15th, 1981, the require- ment was removed for all stu- dents who have already had four years of one language or three years of one and two years of another language in high school. Students who were en- rolled in a lower level language course that semester to fulfill their requirement even though their background was adequate were allowed to withdraw from their courses without being giv- en an F, as is usually the case with late withdrawals. W ' s will appear on these students ' tran- scripts, and no penalty will be incurred for late withdrawal. Many people feel that the change was m.ade because of a cut in the budget, thinking that the fewer sections of a class taught, the less it will cost, while others are just plain greatful for a welcome change that has been a long time com- ing. 155 PEOPLE TAKE A MOMENT Believe it not, there is life be- yond UMass, and its been quite interesting watching all tnose people out there : . .

From the time of the utilitarian jean of the turn-of- the-century-cowboy to the sen- sual body-hugging garment that today envelops the lower half of teen sex siren Brooke Shields, the blue jean has joined the television generation.

This time it seems more blatant than ever . . . The legal drink- ing age in Massachusetts was raised from 18 to 20 years old in April, 1979. According to a ran- dom survey of 30 UMASS stu- dents, however, the law has done nothing to stop 18 and 19 year-olds from drinking alco- hol! . . . The 30 respondents unanimously agreed there was widespread defiance of the law among 18 and 19 year-olds. There was some difference of opinion as to what the legal age should be. More than two- thirds of the students surveyed thought the age should be 18, while a little less than a third felt the age should be 19. One student said he agreed with the present age of 20 ...

Richard Evans, the counsel to the Massachusetts chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws says the term legal in the group ' s name indicated a con- trolled taxable, product.

There is, however, another story, less publicized but more interesting. That is the success of " 9 to 5 " . What accounts for " 9 to 5s " popularity? Is it the slapstick? If it is, why isn ' t all slapstick successful? Why didn ' t everyone flock to " Coin ' Ape? " Is it Jane Fonda, one of the big box-office names? But Fonda is so muted in the film you scarecely notice her. Lily Tomlin carries the picture. At best, Dolly Parton is an interesting sideshow. I have two theories, which may be the same one. It is that this is the closest thing to a pure " woman ' s pic- ture " as Hollywood has given us- and it ' s a woman ' s picture for everyone. Still, I think men can enjoy " 9 to 5. " What I re- sponded to was the deft ensemble playing of the prin- cipals. Instead of the one-dimensional sterotype fe- male standard to most Hollywood movies, we are giv- en, in " 9 to 5, " three distinct characters. Each is a facet of feminity. Each has a brain. She just chooses to use it in her own way. " 9 to 5 " has an interesting history as a movie. It was Alan Ladd, Jr ' s last project before quitting as head of 20th Century-Fox to start his own company. If there ' s any discernible trend in current movies, it ' s a disposition toward sadism. The central image of the day is a helpless, frightened vulnerable girl being preyed upon by a psychopath. It ' s not exactly the kind of issue that " 9 to 5 " led us to anticipate-but it ' s all that remains of the hopes raised by ' 9 to 5 ' s " original re- lease. Hi ' uce McCuhe m- ■ J ' 162 f V.

There is finally an American film, and a commercial one at that, which manages to present relationships in some degree of complexity, which, with only a few lapses, provides real, meaningful dialogue, which makes a thematic statement which draws outstanding performances where none might be expected, and which marks a fine directorial debut. Beyond these, what sets " Ordinary People " above, way above, other recent efforts is its overall realism. I had expected to be midly critical of yet another film that catalogued the tragedies that beset the beautiful people. Not that the upper middle classes and above don ' t feel their tragedies; it ' s just that there is so much that needs to be said, that Hollywood seems reluctant to say, about the middle and lower classes whose day to day life is often a tragedy in itself. But " Ordinary People " is primarily a film about caring and the lacking of this trait seems particularly pandemic among those upwardly mobile sorts who have surrounded themselves with material goods. There are, in the film, brief, scathing attacks on this phenomenon. An archetypal cocktail party, a jogging partner who huffs continuously about the stock mar- ket, and the petty dinner conversations and minor league escapist jet-setting that exist in the midst of personal crisis-are all presented with a sharp impres- sionism. « C-w C ' c 163 BM - ' BHiy UPS REO Speedwagon Watching REO Speedwagon is like wandering the yellow brick roads of an indoor shop- ping mall.

To their original formula- macho muscles, bodies clad in white unitards and acting like human flypaper, and electronic music-they added women, dra- ma, and tuneful scores. Along the way, they turned into an in- dustry which allowed the origi- nal crew to enjoy a perpetual adolescence-an income. J.T.

' s ■■■ mib TWO ROCK GREATS Lennon Springsteen Like millions of other pre-pubescent girls around the world, I spent years collecting many Beatle cards with bub- ble gum, listening to Beatle records over and over until they ran through my head, buying a plastic Beatles wallet, a Beatles notebook, reading teen magazines about their lives. My friends and I talked about John, Paul, George and Ringo day and night, all of us smitten with little-girl adoration. My parent ' s friends were bemused; they liked to ask me about the Beatles just to watch the young enthusiasm of my response. My mother complained about the noise, the unintelligibi- lity of the words of rock and roll. But soon, she started humming Beatles songs herself. She didn ' t like most rock and roll, but the Beatles were different, she admitted. She liked the music. She could iden- tify the songs and understand the words. " Is that the Bea- tles? " she would ask, hearing a song on the now-ever- tuned-in AM radio. Often, she was wrong; she tended to think any melodic, understandable " kids " song was a Bea- tles song, but the Beatles were a bridge from my generation to hers. Lovely, funny, soulful or serious- the Beatles ' music was unlike the music of the more psychedelic Jefferson Airplane or the meaner, more antisocial Rolling Stones. It told my mother something, but not too much, about the revolution in culture and values that my peers and I were absorbing, if not creating. She didn ' t agree with the new values, but she wasn ' t frightened by the Beatles. Neither was I. Some kids, mostly those a little older than I, experimented with drugs and sex, violently opposed their parents, dropped out of college, were arrested in anti-war protests. But the real army of Beatles fans weren ' t the most radical kids. The mainstream Beatles fans needed desperately to be- lieve in public figures like Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King and John Lennon - to guide the new energy, the new generation through very frightening times. We were deeply effected by the violent death of one " Peace " hero after another. When acid rock stars Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix killed themselves with drugs, it didn ' t just horrify our parents. It frightened and alienated kids like me. The Beatles sang of absurdity and change, of the work- ing-class wasteland, the emptiness of materialism, the iro- ny, silliness, sadness and everlastingness of love. Their thoughtful, lyrical, sane rebellion was a home base in a kaleidoscope of revolution. Led by the nervy, sarcastic, but ultimately gentle John Lennon, the Beatles amused and led my generation. While the heroes fell, unstoppably, one by one, while the war in Vietnam seemed impossibly, shockingly persistant, their music kept coming, too, enticing us to dance ourselves tired or just to think, to sing along or just " Let It Be. " We felt deserted when Lennon married Yoko Ono and the « Beatles split up. It wasn ' t wanting to be young again; the Beatles music had grown up, and so had we. But it was one of the only links between 1963 and 1970 that still meant anything. My friends and I would have traveled miles, spent outlandish sums, to hear the Beatles together again. We knew we would have been soothed, spoken to intelligently, brought together again in a world where it seemed nothings good lasted. But Lennon found, after troubled years in the early 1970sM that the family was the center he had looked for, and so his last album was a somewhat sentimental shrine to his own. If he ' s right, my generation will be OK without the Beatles, if it ' s true that all we need, or perhaps all we can depend on, is , love. Betsy A Lehman Just when you think all the fun might have been wrenched from rock ' n ' roll, Bruce Springs teen and his E Street band take the stage and deliver four hours of testimo- ny proving that rock is alive and well. Performing only days after the death of John Lennon - whose zeal for rock ranked with Springsteen ' s - the band of Asbury Park, N.J., opened last winter ' s show at the Provi- dence Civic Center with a torrid version of " Born to Run " , brushing aside any suspicions that the concert might be subdued. Early in the show, Springsteen - in one of two references! to the fallen Beatle-mumbled " This is for you, Johnny, " and launched into a stately version of " The Promised Land. " Otherwise, the show was an exercise in high-powered rock ' n ' roll. Springsteen is famed for playing marathon shows - a reputation that remains intact. In Providence, Springsteen - " The Boss " to his fans - ripped through some 30 songs, ranging from " For You " and " Rosalita " of the old days, to Cadillac Ranch " , " Hungry Heart " and " I ' m A Rocker " , from his recent hit album " The River " . On record, Springsteen can be exciting and moving, but his live performances are legend, and with good reason. Robert P. Connolly ACTCIPS aVILTIUCIPS TRAGEDY IN ATLANTA The unsolved murders of black children in Atlanta have shocked the nation and given rise to questions about why such killings happen, why chil- dren are the victims, and what parents can do to protect their children. A profile of the killer and the victims: Psychodynamic theor- ies predict that the Atlanta kill- er is a weak, passive person of a careful, methodical nature, a person with mixed needs for in- tamacy and aggression, for whom the excitement of abduc- tion and murder or sadomaso- chistic behavior is needed for him to feel sexual, said psychol- ogy Professor Bonnie Strick- land. She believes that, when the killer is found, he will be a " pa- thetic and tragic person " from a disrupted and disturbed family background, who may feel re- morse for his actions, and, at the same time, a perverse plea- sure in beating all those trying to find him. The victims were selected, she believes, because all were slight in build and may have appeared easy to overpower. Many of the children were " street waise " and may have been expected to be " savvy " in dealing with a dangerous situa- tion. It is likely, she said, that the murderer did not appear dangerous or that the children refused to believe that murder could happen to them. Professor Jon Simpson of so- ciology describes the Atlanta killings as representative of the violence most usual in our soci- ety. The wide news coverage that they have received makes them appear to be more repre- sentative than they are, he said. In fact, mass killings are very infrequent, rather like the occa- sional airplane disaster that concerns us because a large number of people are killed, while we ignore the even larger number killed in car accidents. Far more serious, because more common, is the domestic vio- lence usually described as child or wife abuse " I feel that the Atlanta situa- tion is hopeless in the sense of the feeling of frustration, " he said. " There is little you can do to reduce the probability of vio- lence in society, given the na- ture and character of our soci- ety. We have a subculture of violence that is complicated by the complexities of human na- ture, and the inability of human beings to control their destinies in any rational way. There are so many possible catalysts to- ward violent response that con- trol of violence is a very diffi- cult task. " The Atlanta Murders may make parents more protective of their children for a limited period, but the effects will be transistory, said Professor M. Lawrence Rawlings. Once the killer is caught, everyone will try to return to the status-quo. " A violent person can be any place, any time and there is lit- tle way to predict where vio- lence can happen. To be sud- denly concerned about a single episode doesn ' t make sense " , he said. " You should be concerned all the time and start early teaching children where the risks are, without frightening them. " Since the risk of violence to children is most common with- in the family, Rawlings would like to see this violence combat- ted by re-educating from their patterns of using voilence to re- lieve frustration or as a means of controlling children or spouses. Many people are vio- lent, he said, because they don ' t know their other options. Is The Media Giving The Kill- ings Too Much Publicity? " The hysteria would be much worse if the murders weren ' t covered, " said Howard Ziff. " What social ills is the media accused of perpetrating by cov- ering it when a large number of children are killed? Critics of the media who claim that publicity about kill- ings encourages so-called copy- cat killers are speaking without evidence, he said. " They don ' t want to read bad stories? That ' s too bad. That ' s what I call the mentality of blame the messenger for the bad news. I can tell you that we have the evidence about what happens when you don ' t release information on stories of great social moment and concern. We know what happens in totali- tarian countries . . . Instead of having channels of communi- cation kept open by reasonably intelligent observers like the press, you have them darkened by rumor. - UMass News Service 166 MAKIN ' IT IN MASSACHUSETTS Will Massachusetts reach zero population growth in the 1980 ' s? Some economists and social ob- servers in the state think we will, says George S. Odiorne, a professor in the School of Business Adminis- tration of the University of Massa- chusetts in Amherst. " The shortage of energy, the de- pletion of resources and environ- mental presures all have produced an interest in how we can prevent overpopulation, " Odiorne said. " For special reasons having nothing to do with fertility or birth rates, Massa- chusetts may be approaching that zero growth rate. " Recent figures from the U.S. Cen- sus B ureau reveal that the state gained only 223,000 population in the decade between 1970 and 1980, a net gain of 1.4 percent for the peri- od, Odiorne said. This computes to " a miniscule percentage yearly, " he said, " and indicates a net outmigra- tion during the period. " If this trend continues, it could have important economic conse- quences tor the state. For example, he said, the drop in population will affect growth in purchasing power, available labor supply, and the costs of education and government. Where do the people go? Many of them move across lines into Maine and New Hampshire. Older people on fixed incomes move because taxes are lower and so are living costs in other states. This can mean that the ample pensions of some retired people may be earned in Massachusetts and spent in an- other state. For young people, the local labor market may not offer much hope for good careers. Many college gradu- ates move to large southern cities of California in order to earn higher wages. This turns out to be a double drain on the Massachusetts econo- my, Odiorne said, since it costs tax- payers several hundred million dol- lars yearly to support state higher education and yet the skills, energy and knowledge of recent graduates are applied to developing the econo- mies of their new home states. The " outmigration " of native young people is somewhat offset by people moving in from other states. Odiorne said. The major corporate headquarters of high technology bu- sinesses such as Digital, Honeywell, Polaroid, Wang, Data General, Prime and similar firms attract peo- ple from outside the state. Also, some large national firms based in Chicago or Minneapolis have major operations in the Boston area and assign their workers to Boston as a step in their career progress. Some of these temporary Boston workers become permanent as they fall in love with the beauty of Massachu- setts and the attraction of its cities. " One of the economic challenges of the 1980s will be to make Massa- chusetts more attractive to young people, especially Massachusetts college graduates, " Odiorne said. " This means jobs, but it also means opportunities to start new business firms. It may also call for some res- toration of traditional Yankee val- ues of frugality, discipline and hard work in the young. Unfortunately, those are the very qualities which today tend to send young people to Houston, Los Angeles and Phoe- nix. " In the 20-year period between 1952 and 1972, Massachusetts exper- ienced a net decline in the number of acres of land in agricultural use of about 12,000 acres a year. Most of this land was lost to urban use or left to revert to natural forest. Today, though, the trend toward a decline in the number of acres used for farming in the state seems to have halted, said Professor John Foster of the University of Massa- chusetts Amherst Department of Food and Resource Economics. Ac- cording to a recent census, he said, it now appears that the number of acres of farmland in Massachusetts is modestly increasing. Why has the decline in farm acre- age ceased? " One speculation is that the cen- sus is wrong, " Foster said. " The oth- er is that there is some substance to it, that the number of acres in agri- cultural use is increasing. This may be because of the back-to-the-land movement and the use of land for small, part-time operations. " Since, at present, Massachusetts depends on sources outside of the state for 85 per cent of its food, local farmers can compete, the ma ket for local agriculture produces is endless, Foster said. But can they compete successfully with farmers in other parts of the nation? Massachusetts farmers will have an uphill climb to compete success- fully with farmers in California and the Midwest, says Professor Robert Christensen, also of the department. This is because Massachusetts farmland is very heavily taxed com- pared with farmland elsewhere (Massachusetts has the second or third highest tax rate per acre in the nation), farms here are small, and farmers are also at " the tail-end of the pipeline for fuels, fertilizers and agricultural chemicals, so all these tend to be more expensive, " he said. One might think that recent in- creases in fuel costs might make transportation of food from Califor- nia and the Midwest so expensive that local farmers couldn ' t help but be more competitive in their prices. This just isn ' t so, though, Christen- sen said. Even if gas costs rose by as much as $1 a gallon, an average- sized truck can carry enough pro- duce from other farm areas to New England and the cost of its cargo of lettuce would rise only about 1.2 cents a pound. That may not be enough of a price hike to make the heavily taxed Massachusetts farmer more competitive in the market- place. On the other hand, Foster said, consumers in New England are be- coming more supportive of locally grown products and may be willing to pay more to support local farm- ers. The Massachusetts Department of Agriculture has adoptecf the slo- gan " Massachusetts grown and fresher " to help encourage this sup- port. Even a little bit better market for local agricultural products could make a significant difference to farmers. " I see a lot of potential for fresh fruit and vegetable production in the state, although there are a lot of risks, " Christensen said. " I think the fact that there is more interest in and support for agriculture in the state is a very positive thing for us to see. " 167 gj mM a mm lilLECniONS 1980 was a year of decision. In 1980, just like every other year since 1789, the American public was asked to do its civic duty to excersize its " inalien- able right " to cast a ballot and elect a president. And in 1980, like in all those other years, there were plenty of choices of who to vote for. And yet, some say, there were no choices. In the early stages of the race, everyone wanted to run, to win their party ' s nomination and make the final stretch drive to- ward the White House. There were all the Republicans, each trying to climb over the other to emerge at the top of the heap and to get a crack at dethroning the Democratic incumbent: John Anderson, George Bush, John Connally, Howard Baker, and Ronald Reagan to name a few. And Jimmy Carter, who so effectively wooed the nation and defeated then-President 168 Gerald Ford in 1976, was facing a challenge from within his own party to strip him of the presidency. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the elite, proper Bos- tonian, brother of a former president and of an almost- president, sought to overthrow the Carter regime and retire the incumbent after four somewhat stormy years. As to be expected, the field narrowed as the campaign pro- gressed. One by one, the Re- publicans fell by the wayside, leaving Anderson, Bush and Reagan as the only real, serious competitors. As for Carter and Kennedy, who often bitterly as- sailed each other in the Quests for glory, it was the President who held on to his power at the voting booth. And so November ap- proached with the voter as con- fused as ever. On one day, Rea- gan would have a solid lead in the Opinion Polls, but he would trail the next. The public, faced with a deteiorating econo- my, the Iranian Hostage situa- tion and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, couldn ' t decide what to do, since the candidates really hadn ' t told them how they felt about the issues. By election day. Carter and Reagan were nearly even in the opinion polls, with Anderson at about 5%. But, as it had been throughout the campaign, the undecided voters held a sub- stantial chunk in the polls and they, most analysts said would determine the outcome. Even before the polls closed on the west coast, the television networks proudly proclaimed that America had spoken and that Ronald Wilson Reagan, a former actor and Governor from California, would become the 40th president of the United States. At the age of 69, Reagan is the oldest man ever to as- sume the presidency, certainly quite an accomplishment for a man who once co-starred with " Bonzo " the chimp. On the home front, public officials declared the end of life as we know it with the voters passage of Proposition 2 Vz. The measure provided for drastic cuts in property and excise tax- es at officials opposed to the measure said, great expense of government service. Locally, Amherst voters re- turned incumbents Silvio Conte and James Collins to the House and State Legislature re- spectively. And Amherst also bucked the national and state- wide trend, vying for Carter over Reagan and even crushing Proposition 2 Vz. And so, as the cold winter winds whipped through Wash- ington D.C. on January 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president, George Bush as Vice-President. ffmifmm PRESIDENT IT ' S A HARD ROLL TO PLAY Key dates in Ronald Rea- gan ' s presidency: Jan. 20: The new President is sworn in and, in a symbolic gesture signaling his conserva- tism, he issues an executive or- der freezing federal hiring.

It started last October when three American nuns were killed in El Salvador, and has been knawing away at our con- sciences ever since: should we leave El Salvador to its own- problems? Here are some of the facts: -the U.S. has given El Salva- dor money, arms, and troops since 1976. -there are several U.S. com- panies in El Salvador, including B.F. Goodrich, Sears and Roe- buck, and Esso. -Israel, Cuba, Russia, and France are also giving El Salva- dor aid in different forms. -the government to pull the country together through its land reform policies. -the power no longer rests on fourteen families. -priests, nuns and journalists have been kidnapped, raped, or killed by terrorists since Octo- ber. -The Gallup Poll reveals that one out of every ten people wants us there; nine do not. Without even thinking of re- minders of Viet Nam, escala- tions with Russia, of the deaths of american citizens over a war that ' s ended, these facts speak for themselves; what do they tell you? A GANG? Jiang Qing Mao, Wang Hongwen, Zhang Chunqiao and Yao Wenyuan were brought up on trial in Novem- ber of 1980 for forming the per- secuting party and state leaders in China in an attempt to gain power for themselves, accord- ing to TIME magazine. This controversial political battle took place for about three weeks, with the entire world constantly wondering if Mao ' s widow was really guilty of in- structing the three persons mentioned above to discredit their enemies in the party who stood in the way of their plan to sieze power. The four apperent- ly arrested or executed some 534,000 Chinese on Chairman Mao in 1971. To the amazement of the en- tire world, Jiang Qing Mao took the stand and acted as though she ' d never even heard the word China before, much less commit treason against the country. The other three accom- plices, however admitted to the entire plot soon after, and the four were sentenced. The whole messy trial and the expose of Mao ' s widow left many American ' s asking; How could four people actually do something like this and get away with it for so long? In this case, four clearly was a gang, a devastating group of powerful people who had the potential to rip China apart. Thankfully, they failed. 170 THE FINAL FRONTIER Saturn ' s rings are the year ' s best example of an old science principle: the more you find out the less you know. According to Professor Peter Schloerb, a planetary scientist at the University of Massachusett- s Amherst,: " Before Voyager we thought we understood this ring system very well, we thought there were perhaps a half-dozen of these flat rings and we gave them all names and thought we had a very good idea of what they looked like. After Voyager we have a better idea of what they look like but perhaps less of an understanding of how they came to be. " In other words, the Voyager im- ages answered some questions but Voyager images answered some questions but raised many more, not only about Saturn and its rings but about the planetary system. According to Schloerb, " We have some ideas of why Sat- urn has rings. We think it has a lot to do with the satellites. " Sat- urn has many moons, he ex- plained, and each has an influ- ence on the particles in the ring system. " We think their influ- ence is to confine the particles to this particular ring system. " Beyond this kind of limited un- derstanding of the ring system, it ' s pretty hard to say right now why the rings are there and how they came to be, Schloerb said. But the rings offer astrono- mers a very good model for re- search on the solar system, he added. The rings are essentially a body of very small particles orbit- ing about a very large body and constantly running into each oth- er. A system like this is perhaps a very good laboratory on what the very early solar system might have been like, he said. " We know (or we think we know) that the planets formed out of a great gas cloud around the sun some 4.6 billion years ago. During that time the first things that were made in the solar nebula were small objects. " And the small objects would run into each other and various dynamic phenomena would make larger objects. And the larger objects would run into each other and eventaully build up something as large as a plan- et, " Schloerb explained. Planetary scientists will get an- other look at Saturn next year, when Voyager II will rendezvous with Saturn. Schloerb predicts that more new questions will re- sult. " The new questions and their answers, though they al- ways lead to more new ques- tions, always increase our under- standing, " he said. SPACE SHUTTLE COLUMBIA Hopes for continued American exploration of space rose with as- tronauts John Young and Robert Crippen as space shuttle Colum- bia lifted into Earth orbit on April 8, 1981. " It ' s the second big step into space, " says QMass geologist Randolph W. Bromery of the shuttle program. Bromery, a sen- ior NASA advisor, was on hand for the early morning launch from Cape Canaveral. The shuttle program is a cru- cial step toward building a space observation platform — a perma- nent space laboratory — for use by industry and scientists alike. Following the four flights to test the shuttle vehicle and its environment NASA will launch a series of Spacelab missions to in- vestigate a range of subjects from the feasibility of gathering solar energy in space to determin- ing the role of gravity in plant growth. Two other GMass Amherst professors also watched Colum- bia ' s progress closely. Astrono- mer Paul Goldsmith and electri- cal engineer K. Sigfrid Yngvesson developed one of 40 detailed Spa- celab experiment proposals. Their project, along with all but three others, is on the shelf right now, ready to be built if NASA gives the word. The ClMass project is a milli- meter-wave radio telescope. It would look at astronomical ob- jects in the radio frequency por- tion of the electromagnetic spec- trum rather than the visible light portion that conventional, optical telescopes see. A state-of-the-art instrument, it is based on exper- tise developed in building the Five College Radio Astronomy Observatory located at the Quab- bin Reservoir. The experiment OMass re- searchers would like to perform is dubbed the SINTOX Project, short for Spacelab Interstellar Oxygen Project. It would detect and study for the first time oxy- gen molecules in the gaseous clouds between stars. Such ob- servation is impossible from Earth because radiation froni .nf. atmospheric oxygen blocks the faint radio signals from many light years out into the Milky Way. That information would tell sci- entists a great deal about how stars are born and how they die — the seemingly endless recy- cling of stellar matter. It also might give some clues to the ori- gins of life and our prospects of having distant neighbors else- where in the galaxy. Bromery emphasizes the dual role of the shuttle missions. " One is the new discoveries we can ma ke in space, " he said, " satisfy- ing man ' s quest for knowledge. But the major thing the shuttlle will do is ensure that a larger por- tion of what we do out there will be beneficial for mankind. " Ultimately, the shuttle is sup- posed to make space accessible to all as shuttle flights settle down to the NASA s equivalent of boring milk runs. 171 SOME WOULD CALL IT DISASTROUS Mt. St. Helens — Fire — Proposition 2 2 It makes some people shud- der to think about it, while oth- ers cari ' t wait for the next erup- tion so that they can sell more ash. It ' s the ominous Mt. St, Helens that I am referring to, the massive mountain of mol- ton rock and ash that has be- come one of the largest tourist attractions in the west, as well as one of the biggest threats to farming, industry and life itself in the state of Washington. The volcano which had been silent for over 60 years erupted on May 18th, 1981, and has had four major eruptions and sever- al minor eruptions since. It has destroyed miles of land, and has taken the lives of over 31 people, and yet, people still flock to Washington to " get a closer look " . Massachusetts voters fol- lowed the national trend of tax reforms and overwhelmingly approved the controversial Pro- position ZVa in November of this year. The tax reform is called Pro- position lyh because it will lim- it property taxes in the state to iyi% of the market value. Though this seems undeniably beneficial, the controversy lies in the fact that local revenues will be lessened by $1.3 billion. The passing of Proposition V-h comes two years after the passing of Proposition 13 in California. It is obvious that Massachusetts need a form of tax reform. Masachusetts ' prop- erty tax runs 70% over the na- tional average and the state leg- islature has considered 130 re- form bills since 1935. The ma- jor difference between Califor- nia and Massachusetts is the fact that Massachusetts has no surplus to soften the blow. The true effects of Proposi- tion iVz will not be known for years to come. The basic con- troversy of tax reform lies in whether spending power be- longs in the hands of the gov- ernment or of the citizens. In the short run it is indesputable that government services and jobs will be cut in order to give more buying power to the tax- payer. Only time will tell if this trade will spur the economy enough to justify the immea- surable cuts in government ser- vices. Experts have stated that Pro- position 2V2 is a basically sound proposal. Though it is a well- intentioned bill, many experts warn that it is seriousely flawed and that it was passed without enough understanding on the voters part. It is however, un- likely that it will be amended or changed because of its large passing margin. The passing of Proposition ZVa brought various but far- reaching reactions. Proponents of the bill were at first elated at receiving relief from their bur- densome tax load. Later, many proponents began to worry that the " scare stories " they ' d been hearing might indeed come true. Opponents ' reactions bor- dered on chaotic. Government employees began to fear for their jobs. Government depart- ments looked to justify their ex- istance and looked for ways to cut their budgets. Citizens across the state began to con- sider the end of governmi services and the effects on the public school system. flj The hardest hit areas of state will be the older and the poorer cities and towns. Ai These commuities tend to be the ones with the highest prop- erty taxes and the greatest need for public services. The hardest hit department will be the newest ones and the ones that take a large slice of the budget. Among these are the police, public works, and school departments. Many experts agree that the first place to make fiscal im- provements is the Massachu- setts Bay Transit Authority. This years MBTA budget ran out long before the end of the fiscal year. The legislature re- fused additional funds until management was reformed. When Governor King autho- rized emergency funds without management reform, he was criticized as overstepping his authority. The pros and cons of Propo- sition IVt. can best be under- stood through examination of an example. Proposition 2}h would cut automobile excise tax from 6.6% to 2.5%. It can be ar- gued that this will mean a sav- ings of $126 million to state motorists and will spur in- creased car sales and therfore new jobs and tax revenue. Yet it can also be argued that it will mean a revenue loss of $162 million to towns and cities and therefore a major loss of vices. ser- -Sheila A. Coleman 172 HOMECOMING FOR OUR HOSTAGES In late January, 1981, as most UMass students were enjoying the final weeks of intersession, the majority of United States citizens breathed a collective sigh of releif as 52 Americans, who had been held hostage in Iran for 444 days, were finally released from captivity. As the nation watched, a dou- ble drama unfolded on the tele- vision screens. As Ronald Rea- gan prepared to take the oath of office of the presidency, the world waited for word from Iran, where the hostages were supposedly being readied for release. In the days earlier, ru- mors of their impending release spread across the globe, but one snag after another delayed their freedom. Finally, at 12:33 p.m. January 20, just moments after Ronald Reagan became the 41st presi- dent of the United States, the plane carrying the hostages left the runway in Terhan, Iran, carrying the 52 to freedom. As the word went out, millions of yellow ribbons were readied, the symbol adopted to welcome the hostages ' return. That day in history marked the end of a 444 day struggle, begun on November 4, 1979, when the U.S. embassy in the middle east country was over- run by militant students, angry at the U.S. for allowing the ail- ing Shah Reza Pahlevi into the country for medical treatment. The militants seized the embas- sy and threatened not to free the captives until the U.S. re- turned the Shah to face trial in [ran. Efforts to free the hostages by diplomatic means failed and the U.S. was forced to wait until Iran settled its internal strife before the country could decide how to handle the situation. On November 20, 1979, 16 days after the embassy was seized, eight blacks and five women were released by the Iranians in a deal negotiated with the aid of the Palestinian Liberation Or- ganization. One black and two women were not released and remained in Iran until the end of the crisis. As the months dragged on, little progress was accom- plished and the hostages ' fam- ilies as well as much of the country, agonized over their fate. Glimpes of the hostages were occasionally seen, but these films provided little in- formation of their condition. Several missions to Iran by members of the clergy and in- ternational diplomats were well and receiving fair treatment. Much of the country still had doubts, however. In late April, 1980, the world was shocked when eight U.S. marines were killed when an ef- fort to rescue the hostages failed. In the flaming wreck of two helicopters in the Iranian desert, the mission failed and served as a major embarrass- ment to the United States. The pain of the incident was felt the following day, when the Iran- ians released photographs of the charred bodies of the ser- vicemen in the desert sand. Needless to say, the failed at- tempt also hampered diplomat- ic efforts to gain the release of the hostages. The following July, another milestone was reached when Richard Queen, one of the cap- tives held at the embassy, was released by the Iranians be- cause he was suffering from an illness, later discovered to be multiple sclerosis. Queen re- turned home for treatment of the disease and went into seclu- sion at his parents ' home in Maine, offering little insight into what was actually happen- ing in Iran. Towards the end of the year, after Reagan defeated President Jimmy Carter, negotiations be- gan to move forward. Ir-an stat- ed its demands — the release of its assets frozen by Carter when the embassy was seized — and the U.S., through Algerian di- plomats, negotiated the terms. Finally, it seemed that Iranians, along with the Algerian inter- mediaries and U.S. Deputy Sec- retary of State Warren Christo- pher, had reached a basic agree- ment. About $12 billion in fro- zen Iranian assets would be re- J I leased and deposited in Europe- an banks as the hostages were released from Iran. As the U.S. prepared to inau- gurate a new president, the de- tails of the plan were being worked out. And, finally, as the inauguration drew closer, the pact seemed ready to be signed. Last minute kinks held up the process until the inauguration was nearly over. At 1:50 p.m., the word finally came that the plane carrying the hostages had cleared Iran- ian airspace and the entire na- tion breathed a collective sigh of relief. Across the country, people watched as the hostages landed in Algeria, transferred to American jets, and were flown to West Germany where they were moved to a U.S. hos- pital and were greeted by then former President Carter. In the following days, the American public, through the eyes of television cameras, watched the liberated hostages return to the U.S. and become instant heroes. First at West Point in New York, where they were reunited with their fam- ilies, and then later at a White House ceremony and subse- quent ceremonies at home towns across the country, the former hostages became celeb- rities and heroes. And we still haven ' t heard the end of it all. Major books and movies about the crisis are almost certain to appear. And history books for generations will retell the story again and again. For most people, howev- er, the ordeal is one they would probably rather forget. -Ed Levine ]iiS , An earthquake struck Italy on November 23rd of this year leaving thousands dead and hundreds of thousands home- less in what could prove to be the worst natural disaster of the decade. The initial quake ranged from 6.5 to 6.8 on the Richter Scale and was followed by numerous tremors. The earthquake was the strongest in 70 years and shook an area from Sicily to Venice. Though dense fog hindered early rescue attempts, officials set a death toll at over 200. As tremors continued to rock Italy and further the devastation, the official toll rose to 2915 uniden- tified dead, another 1574 miss- ing, and 7304 injured. Officials stated that some 265,000 people were now home- less. Initially residents escaped into the streets to avoid the fall- ing debris. In the larger cities. emergency camps were set up in open fields. In the smaller towns, where help was slower to arrive, families moved into abandoned buildings, schools, private apartment buildings and cargo drums. This despar- ate squatting brought comflict between officials and citizens. An attempt to move the hardest hit towns to seaside resorts and house them in requisitioned ho- tels was termed a failure be- cause few of the homeless would move from their home- towns. Hospitals, already crowded and hectic in an attempt to deal with their own damages, were innundated with multitudes of injured. Physicians cancelled a planned strike and were ur- gently called on duty. Supplies were slow to move through the devastated area and another ur- gent call went out for help in that area. Though clinics had been set up following the initial quake, the ensuing tremors caused the evacuation of many. A glimpse of hope was given to Italy by the various forms of aid that rolled in following the earthquake. From within Italy, Red Cross, military and public forces all attempted to help in any way possible. Pope John Paul II toured and spoke in an effort to comfort the grief- stricken survivors. Monetary relief poured in from foreign countries. The League of Red Cross Socieites in Genva asked for cash and goods in an effort to help. The European Com- mon N4arket granted emergen- cy aid of $2 million. The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Com- mittee approved $50 million in aid. Sheila A. Coleman IRAN vs. IRAQ What started in September as mere squirmishes along the Iran-Iraqi border developed into a major war which contin- ues to threaten the West ' s oil supply and world peace. The initial conflicts arose early in September and were confined to small battles along the 700 mile Iran-Iraqi border and to a propaganda battle. The United States found itself oddly attacked by both countries in this war of propaganda. Iran tied the US to Iraqi ' s aggression in an effort to spread the Iran- ian hatred for America to Iraq. Iraq blamed Iran ' s actions on the " US, international Zionism, the Sadat regime and all signa- taries of the Camp David ac- cords. " Later in September the con- flict moved beyond the propa- ganda stage and was recognized as a full scale war. Initial battles involved gunboats, rockets and artillaery along a waterway at the tip of the Persian Gulf. Both sides claimed heavy damages against the other. Iraq took an aggressive role and attacked 6 Iranian air installations and followed with a strike on Iran ' s oil centers. Iraq continually played the aggressive role and struck against Iranian oil field. Iran ' s tough ground forces brought many stalemates at different times. Iran occaisionally took the aggresive role and attacked a Nuclear Reactor in Iraq. The massive propaganda efforts of both sides continued and con- fused actual details of damages and fatalities. Militarily, Iraq is far superior to Iran though its population is only one-third that of Iran. Iraqi forces are recognized as being the second strongest in the area. On the other hand, Iranian forces are known to be physically worn down and low in morale. As of this writing, the situa- tion is still highly unpredict- able. Numerous ceasefires and truces have been offered and then broken. Strong Iraqi movements into Iran have been successfully defended against. The momentum has swung from one side to the other many times and often appears to be at a stalemate. The propaganda battle con- tinues and both countries have stated that they are prepared for a long conflict. Iraq plans to fight until their demands are accepted and Iran will fight un- til its border is restored and Iraq ceases to be aggressive. In short, the war looks to rage on indefinitely and continue to threaten oil supplies and world peace. -Sheila A.

KNAPP 178 TO THE CLASS OF 1981: The completion of your course of studies at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst is an event of great importance to you, your families, and your teachers. You have worked hard for this achievement and the University is proud of you. You have taken advantage of a school which, in the past twenty years, has grown into one of the finest stat e universities in the nation. For many, this opportunity to receive a quality higher educa- tion may not have been otherwise available to you in a period of ever rising tuition rates. You have obtained an education which com- bines the offering of liberal studies with the oppor- tunity for professional training, and, 1 would like to assure you, liberal and professional education are not antithetical. In our highly technological and organizational society, they should be complementary, with each informing the other. The student in the basic disciplines is not liberally educated for the world of today unless he or she possesses an under- standing of the role of technology, its benefits, its costs, and the mode of thought of those who employ it. Conversely, students in professional fields can hardly function well if they do not have an understanding of the human and cultural mi- lieu in which they will practice, be they engineers, physicians, or accountants. Your education here at the Amherst campus has provided you with an experience which will have value now and in the future.

Sincerely, 179 THE CHANCELLOR HENRY KOFFLER 180 Born in Vienna, Austria, Chancellor Henry Koffler has led a distinguished academic career. He orginally received his B.S. in Agricultural Chemistry from the University of Arizona in 1943. From there, he went on to obtain his M.S. in Bacteriology and his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin. After spending some time at the Oak Ridge Insti- tute for Nuclear Studies, the Chancellor did post- doctoral work in Molecular Biology at the Western Reserve School of Medicine. He finally received his D.Sc.h.c. from Purdue University in 1977. Doc- tor Koffler has held the position of Chancellor of the Amherst campus since 1979. As chief executive officer of the campus, Chan- cellor Koffler has ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the Amherst campus. He is responsible for carrying out all policies and procedures estab- lished by the Board of Trustees and President Knapp. He is also entrusted with carrying out long range academic and fiscal plans and personnel policies; coordinating campus operations and poli- cies, including budget development and alloca- tion; reviewing academic and fiscal programs; and acting as liason with campus governing units, the President ' s office and other external agencies. His responsibility is to ensure that the University func- tions as a complete academic enterprise. As Chancellor, Doctor Koffler faces many diffi- cult situations. One of the most upsetting prob- lems on campus, according to Koffler, is the lack of civility on the campus. " Students often confuse license with freedom, resulting in an i ndiscrimi- nate lack of concern for the feelings of other stu- dents. " The Chancellor does not feel that the University suffers from an in-state identity crisis. He believes that there exists a large amount of support for the University from residents of the state. Yet Koffler readily admits that UMass has been the victim of adverse media representation which he terms " out of context representation of the University " . Koffler feels that the national climate at present is one toward great conservatism. Although un- derstandably unhappy about the financial aid cut- backs, he believes that because the nation had. been living beyond its means for so long, the current administration ' s hardline stance on spend- ing was inevitable. Last May, Koffler assumed a leading role in University planning by distributing, " Planning for the 1980 ' s " , a document guiding the faculty, staff and administration through a round of structured discussions about the future. The terms of the dialogue were clear and compelling: given alterna- tive future levels of spending, each unit had to put forward alternative plans to adjust to the levels while maintaining the unit ' s firm purposes. This discourse has commenced in the departments; its products will be refined at the colleges and schools, and be consolidated at the campus level. At a later date the campus plan will be integrated into the University-wide plan and ultimately is expected to contribute to the state-wide master plan to be developed by the Board of Regents. Koffler wants to make the Amherst campus foremost in research and education. To do this will require concentration on more refined goals in target areas. Doctor Koffler ' s long range plan for the University includes increasing non-state and private and scholarship funding, building deeper friendships with alumni and industry, and devel- oping a sophisticated system of community input into the University ' s decision making prosess. -Maureen Mc Namara 181 : VICE-CHANCELLOR: George Beatty, Jr. George Beatty, Vice Chancellor for Administra- tion and Finance, is responsible for the manage- ment of the following divisions: Administrative Services, Auxiliary Services, Facilities Planning, Financial Affairs, Grants and Contracts, Human Resources, and Physical Plant. In addition, the Vice Chancellor is responsible for developing and implementing policies, planning efficient use of resources, and assuring compliance with applica- ble regulations, in May of 1981, Beatty resigned from his post in order to pursue and outside busi- ness venture. Beatty leaves the University with fond memories. " I will especially remember the large number of conscientious, dedicated students who gained much from the Gniversity. Also, 1 will never forget my fond personal associations with both the Chancellors. " When asked which aspects of his job he has most enjoyed, Beatty thoughtfully answered, " 1 enjoyed working and interacting with the various student groups, creating a cohesive organizational structure for administration and finance, and in- corporating a high level of professionalism into the administrative services. " Beatty has also en- joyed taking part in the landscaping of the area for the pleasure of the students and employees as well as the improvement of the GMass transit system. Beatty is concerned over the financial situation facing the Gniversity. " We are facing a difficult period financially with the national trend being one toward greater conservatism. More people will now be questioning the value of higher edu- caction, especially the lower income students who face the most severe financial aid cutbacks. " Vice Chancellor Beatty gives the following ad- vice to 1981 graduates: " As you are graduating, write down your goals, then formulate a plan to help you achieve them. Keep your attention fixed on the goals themselves, not on the effort needed to attain them. With this formula I feel that every- one can be a success. " Added Beatty, " 1 wish you success in all your future endeavors. " -Sandi Knowlton ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE: 182 vice-chancellor: Dennis L. Madson Dennis Madson arrived at GMass in August of 1978 to become the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Madson had previously spent 17 years in public higher education, 1 1 of which were spent in the Student Affairs Department at Colorado State University followed by 6 years in the Student Af- fairs Department at Ohio State University. As the chief student affairs officer for the campus, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs is responsible for the overall supervision of departments provid- ing support services for students. An average day for the Vice Chancellor would involve " a tremendous number of meetings, four or five a day " , according to Madson. He also takes time out of his hectic schedule to visit privately with both students and staff to discuss any num- ber of concerns. " There is an incredible variety of issues involved in this job " , says Madson, " 1 deal with issues such as hazardous waste, peer coun- seling, residence hall problems, and police mat- ters. 1 work with people ranging from custodians to staff psychiatrists. " Turning Spring Concert into a successful event has given Madson the most satisfaction this year. What made this event " successful " ? " Basically, the fact that there were far less behavioral prob- lems this year as compared to last, " cites Madson. Another accomplishment was a reorganization of the entire student affairs system into a far more efficient one. Because of a limited budget, Madson has had to set certain priorities for student affairs at the Uni- versity. He believes that the Student Affairs office must limit some programs in an effort to maintain the quality of existing programs. Articulating the needs of students effectively is also a major goal of the office. Because of the tight job market, Madson ad- vises graduates to " keep your options open. De- velop transferable human relations skills. They can be just as important as technical skills. Don ' t let too many opportunities pass by without giving some a chance. " -Sandi Knowlton STUDENT AFFAIRS 183 PROVOST LOREN BARITZ Dr. Loren Baritz, former Director of the New York Institute for tine Humanities, arrived at the University of Massachusetts during the summer of 1980. He replaces Jeremiah Allen, now Dean of the School of Fine Arts and Humanities, as chief academic officer of the campus; responsible for the entire range of campus academic programs. Specifically, his duties include: general academic development of the Amherst campus and stan- dards of excellence in instructional and scholarly programs; implementation of presidential and Trustee policies on academic matters; review and evaluation of college, school and departmental academic plans and budgets, appointments, pro- motions, and tenure recommendations; proposals for new academic programs; and suggestions and plans to increase the usefulness of the University in outreach activites and innovative service pro- grams. In his role as Provost, Baritz plans to upgrade various academic programs which he feels need improvement. In this way, the University will be able to continue providing the high level of quality education students expect. Baritz sees the University as an institution pro- viding for the needs of both faculty and students. He feels that the cause of low morale on campus is due to a simple lack of information. " If people were better informed of the accomplishments of the University, said Baritz, " they would realize the high level of quality education that the University provides. " Baritz suggests the publication of a newsletter stressing both faculty and student ac- complishments. " Press should not simply be limit- ed to the proposed newsletter, either, " stated Bar- itz. " Closer ties with the Collegian and other area magazines and newspapers are essential. " According to Provost Baritz, the cost of rising tuition will have the greatest impact on students entering the University this Fall. " The class of 1980 was the largest in the history of the Universi- ty, evidence that the financial pinch had not quite hit home yet. Due to this year ' s severe cutbacks on financial aid and other forms of financial assis- tance, the 1981 freshmen class will definitely be the most effected to date. " Even with the University tangled in its financial woes, Baritz remains confident that it will pull through the handle this financial crisis in the best way it can. -Don Young 184 DEAN OF STUDENTS Have a problem? Don ' t know who to turn to? Your best bet would be the Dean of Students Office. There you ' ll find professional staff mem- bers who are on hand to provide assistance and counseling for a variety of Gniversity-related or personal problems. Dean William Field, the Uni- versity ' s first and only Dean of Students, says that his office is designed to be one of the most easily accessible offices in Whitmore. Located atop the ramp leading into Whitmore, the office has a con- stant flow of students armed with questions rang- ing from " How do I go about withdrawing from the Gniversity? " to " Where can 1 cash my check? " This constant student contact is what Dean Field enjoys most about his job. " There is not such thing as a ' typical day ' in his office, " laughs Dean Field, " Each day depends on the students who walk in here. We do try to antici- pate student problems and then meet them head on. " One example of the office anticipating prob- lems has been the setting up of the Information Date Bank (IDB) and the Taped Information Phone Service (TIPS), " The idea actually came from a student working in the office. He complained that he always seemed to be answering the same ques- tions over and over again. We took it from there and now students have answers just a phone call away! " Dean Field has seen the University grow from a small agricultural college in 1951 into a sprawling Gniversity. He has thoroughly enjoyed seeing stu- dents go through the Gniversity and move on into sometimes distinguished careers. Being part of a relatively small administrative team which has helped the Gniversity expand into a cultural cen- ter for Western Massachusetts is a source of per- sonal accomplishments for him. " Certain inevitable changes are now in store for the Gniversity. Due to the current administration ' s stance on financial aid, there will invariably be a basic change in the quality of classes as well as a shift upwards in the income of next years fresh- men class. 1 would like to see a partial bill pay- ment plan installed in response to the difficulty many students and parents are having in paying for the semester in one lump sum. A partial bill payment plan would allow for two or three sepa- rate payments to be made during the course of a semester, " said Dean Field. In response to criticism about the impersonality of GMass, Dean Field feels that students are gen- erally prepared for the atmosphere at GMass be- fore they arrive. " Students usually know other family members or friends who are able to tell them about the ' GMass Experience ' . Then there is always orientation (a program Dean Field originat- ed) whereby each student gets a feel for the Gni- WILLIAM F. FIELD versify prior to the start of their first semester. " Dean Field went on to say, " 1 feel that anonymity builds skills. Generally, the right people come to GMass in the first place. These are the people who can develop a sense of self and who get involved with some aspect of campus activity. " Dean Field does admit to a communications problem, howev- er. The sheer size of the student body prohibits students from receiving all of the information that they should. As of Spring, 1981, Dean Field has reinstated the Dean ' s List, whereby students receiving a 3.5 cum or better are recognized for their effort in the Collegian and local, hometown newspapers. " We used to have a Dean ' s List for years. Then, during the early 70 ' s, the Gniversity moved away from it. Recently, students began asking about it again, and the administration felt the time was right for bringing it out again. " In the years ahead. Dean Field would like to see a more responsive system for student needs be developed. He would also like to see an abolish- ment of the language requirement, stating that students forced to take a course will neither enjoy it or learn anything from it. Should these things eventually happen, you can be sure that Dean Field had some part in them. -Maureen Mc Namara 185 NATURAL SCIENCES MATHEMATICS Dean Frederick Byron According to it ' s Dean, the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is one of the strongest areas at the Gniversity. " We enjoy the reputation of being a young and growing school, " remarked Dean Frederick Byron. " In addition to having our programs ranked high nationally, our Polymer Sci- ence and Radio Astronomy departments are among the best in the world! " " Our programs enjoy immense popularity and are always in heavy demand, " stated Dean Byron. " This ever-increasing demand faces us with cer- tain problems. A major issue is the need for expan- sion, particularly in the areas of Computer and Information Science (COINS) and Applied Math- ematics and Statistics. We simply do not have an appropriate number of faculty needed to teach the number of students signing up for these courses. This shortage of faculty and teaching assistants makes it increasingly difficult to maintain the high quality programs we now offer. Quite bluntly, we are drowning in our teaching obligations! " The biggest threat facing the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is budget cuts. " The effects on this school would be devastating! " de- clared Dean Byron. " For instance, 5 of our T.A. budget could be slashed. Should this occur, our enrollment would have to be limited. Anywhere between 1000 to 2000 applicants could be turned away. In addition, we would not be able to offer anywhere near the number of courses which we now do. " Aside from issues of budget cuts and demand overload. Dean Byron is extremely enthusiastic about the career opportunities facing his gradu- ates. " 1 wish I were them! " he remarked. " This is a remarkable period in the sciences. Many facinat- ing areas are opening up, all of them offering excellent growth potential. " Dean Byron conclud- ed by saying, " 1 would like to wish each and every one of our graduates much deserved success. " -Maureen Mc Namara SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES Dean Thomas Wilkinson Thomas Wilkinson, Dean of the School of So- cial and Behavioral Sciences, first arrived at the University in 1953 as a doctoral student in Soci- ology. He taught Sociology at GMass for 20 years before accepting the post of Acting Dean. Three years later he was appointed permanent Dean. Wilkinson feels that his role is multi-faceted. He most enjoys being among fellow friends and col- leagues and assisting them with their research. Because of this, he finds it most difficult to have to limit research funding due to the severe budget restraints. Wilkinson does not feel that the recent trend towards the hiring of business and engineering majors has kept students away from his school. Instead, he believes that the school has been large- ly uneffected by the trend. " Rather than a de- crease in enrollment, there has been a rise in the school ' s enrollment from 1977 through 1981. 1 feel that this increase is due to a realization by students that a narrow educational training can limit the scope of their skills, " says Wilkinson. " If a student possessing a limited educational back- ground enters the market when there is little or no demand for their skills, the student is out of luck. With a broader, liberal arts background, the stu- dent is provided with a certain degree of flexibil- ity, making it easier to find a job. " Dean Wilkinson advises graduates of his school to use their University experience to discover what area they excel in. With this knowledge they should seek out a career which they will continual- ly find a source of enjoyment and fulfillment. -Don Young coLLCce OF i RTS mo sciences Suson Abbort Ismoel Abdussamed Debro Abrahams Sruarr Abrams Marjjon Adorns PvObin Adoms Jamie Adler I Jeffrey Aghjayan Hugh Aheoin Dororhy Ahern Darlene Ahmed.

" So stated Dr. James Kring, acting Dean of the Col- lege of Food and Natural Resources. His college is one of the largest divisions within the University, encompassing 12 academic departments. Dean Kring is also director of the Massachusetts Agri- cultural Station as well as the Cooperative Exten- sion Service. " The College of Food and Natural Resources has an excellent reputation. We have the 9th lar- gest agricultural program in the entire country. Nationally, our Associates program is ranked 13th and the Doctoral program is ranked 19th. The CIniversity actually grew from the once named Massachusetts Agricultural College. Pointing to the Norman Rockwell original hanging in his of- fice, Kring said the artist presented it as a gift to the agricultural school during one of the com- mencements. The drawing shows an agricultural agent testing a farmer ' s soil in typical Rockwell style. Dean Kring ' s enthusiasm was evident as he proudly spoke of research being conducted within the college. He stated that the Fisheries Depart- ment arid the Entomology Department have gained national attention for their work on salmon and black flies. " With all this marvelous research, it is a shame that most Massachusetts residents complain that their tax monies are being spent carelessly. Most people never hear about the posi- tive aspects of the campus. Everyone seems to associate GMass with co-ed bathrooms and the water crisis, " complained Kring. " The one discouraging aspect of my stay here has been the physical condition of this College. The buildings are in bad shape. Half of them were built prior to 1917, with 25% of those constructed before 1910. We desperately need a new Plant Science building! I have continually stressed to the administration that buildings built before 1910 cannot be renovated in 1981 and expected to last through the year 2000. " As Dean Kring leaves the University, he advises graduates of his school to " Strive to work to the utmost of your ability, then make up your mind to do it for the rest of your life. People will then recognize you for what you are, a dedicated pro- fessional. Success will then surely follow. " -Maureen Mc Namara WlFCHiTV 0MB.

Darity The School of Health Sciences is comprised of three divisions: Nursing, ' Public Health and Com- munication Disorders. Dean William A. Darity has served as Dean of the school since its inception in 1973. Prior to his being named Dean, he held positions in the Department of Public Health here at the University of Massachusetts and in many countries with the World Health Organization. Dean Darity believes that his school is not un- like others in the country. " Both the Nursing and Public Health programs can hold their own with any other in the state and the Communication Disorders department is currently ranked first in the state, " according to Dean Daity. When asked if the Division of Nursing would be better situated on the UMass Worcester campus. Dean Darity replied an emphatic, " No. " " The UMass Medical Center, although an excellent clini- cal facility, has no academic facility available. " Continued Dean Darity, " As it stands now, the Division of Nursing has a very close working rela- tionship with the Worcester site, but Nursing needs a broader base which only the Amherst campus can provide. " Dean Darity has some definite ideas on what he would like to see happen within the School of Health Sciences over the course of the next five years. He would most like to see the graduate Nursing program developed. He would also like more research in all units, more external support for the school, a general tightening up of the un- dergraduate programs in order to ensure the main- atinence of quality backgrounds, and the develop- ment of a more collaborative program of research between the separate colleges and schools within the University. In Dean Darity ' s opinion, " A lot more can be done if we break down many of the existing academic barriers. When this is accom- plished, we will be able to develop some good, strong programs. " Dean Darity advises graduates of his school to initially gain more work experience and then con- sider graduate school. He feels that graduate school imparts students with greater research and academic skills, making them invaluable mem- bers of their professions. Dean Darity reminds his, graduates that their graduation from the Universi- ty is just the beginning of -Sandi Knowlton SCHOOL Of HGtMTH SCIGMCGS Mary Abborr ' France Adames Susan Aglieco Diane Bacis Deborah Dal-ier Jeanne Dorfirz Karherine Broderick Mory Bryanr Carhy Buckley Kathleen Buckley Evelyn Correro Gail Chodwick Undo Copelond Porricio Deren Ocrovio Dioz Julie Doyle Morrha Rnkel Kevin Fogarry Marianne Glorioso Leslie Good Joy Gould Jennifer Hunr Cynthia Jones Erin Kologher Morciejo Kresnow Deborah Locroix Emily Londesmon Diane Lennox Sherri jjbovj rz Esrelle Maorrmonn Rene Magier William Mokris Elizabeth Mendes Diane Monrello Elizoberh O ' Neoll Marilyn Perreoult Undo Perry Jennifer IXondoll IXobyn Reirono Adrienne P-oger Mark Rollins Leslie Soil 220 SCHOOL Of HGFMTH SGGhCeS Roz Schenker Sharon Shevlin Louisa SlowiQczek Paulo Vonosse P.hondo Woyne Amy Wolfe Lynn ZIornIck 221 PHYSICAL EDUCATION Dean David C. Bischoff r. ■ I " The University of Massaciiusetts has been very good to me, " says Dean David Bischoff of the School of Physical Education. Bischoff served as Assistant Dean from 1963, Provost for the Pro- fessional School from 1970 through 1977, and as Dean from 1972. " When 1 first arrived here 24 years ago, there used to be agricultural shows in the Cage. The University was still very much Mass. Aggy with horses and cows being groomed outside the Cage every day. I ' ve seen many changes here and have done my best to keep the school of Physical Edu- cation ahead of them. " One of the major changes has been in the emphasis of the school. Says Dean Bischoff, " The emphasis has been dropped from the teaching area now that there are only 200 students accepted into the department each year. The expanding areas are now exercise science, sports management, and sports study and the- ory. " " As far as nationwide ranking of our school, the graduate department has been ranked 7th in the country. Ut course, this quality filters down to the undergraduate level as well, " states Bischoff. Along with every other school and college, the School of Physical Education will be hard hit by the budget cuts. " The proposed budget cuts will especially hurt the quality of our equipment. The recent problem with the deterioration of the tennis courts are perfect examples of what we will be facing in the future. Along with the physical mani- festations are the moral deteriorations. The bud- get cuts will greatly effect faculty recruiting effort as well " . Plans for the future involve strengthening the current athletic programs as opposed to develop- ing new ones. Explains Dean Bischoff, " What we need is not different programs, but the fruitation of existing ones. " Dean Bischoff advises graduates of the Physical Education School to keep an eye out for different careers. " Don ' t let interests color your direction, career choices should be careful ones. " He goes on to say, " Graduating with a Physical Education degree in 1981 will be difficult, especially if your interests are in teaching. Teaching will be difficult due to Proposition ZVi and a recently passed Bill making physical education classes at the junior and senior levels of high school optional. But hang in there. There is always room for someone good.

The first five of those years were spent as a facul- ty member of SBA teaching business law, with the last three years spent as Dean. " There are currently 800 business schools in the country of which only 200 are accredited, " states Allan. " We are one of those. We are also one of a small number of schools offering an accredited masters program. In addition, CIMass offers the only public doctoral program in busi- ness. " Allan believes that the business school should be enlarged somewhat, but not to include all of the current demand. Instead, there should be some type of compromise between the numbers apply- ing and the amount accepted. There has been a definite increase in the number of women and minorities enrolled in the business program. " Women constitute about 50% now, while ten years ago the figures were only 5-6%. At present, minorities comprise about 8% of the total busi- ness program. This is better than it used to be, but still not good enough. " " Our goal for the next five years is targeted at becoming one of the top ten public business schools in the country, " says Allan. " This will involve strengthening what already exists. We will have to do more off-campus education. We will also be working at improving relations with many alumni and various public agencies. " Dean Allan gives the following advice to 1981 SBA graduates: " Pay less attention to the salary of the first job as to its potential to help you develop professionally. Keep in mind that your career will last at least 40 years. Never stop learn- ing and develop to reach as high as you can. " -Laurie Gelinas I IM...

Fantini Interview with Mario D. Fantini Professor and Dean, School of Education University of Massachusetts Amherst Dean Mario D. Fantini has thoroughly enjoyed serving as Dean of the School of Education during the past four and one-half years. " Maintaining the School of Education ' s national and international reputation of excellence and innovation has pre- sented a great professional challenge for me, " cites Dean Fantini. Prior to his arrival at the Uni- versity of Massachusetts, Dean Fantini served as Dean of the Faculty of Education at the State University of New York, at New Paltz, as well as Program Officer for the Ford Foundation. " Students are drawn to this School of Educa- tion for a variety of reasons and from diverse backgrounds, " says Dean Fantini. " Many of our faculty are nationally-known pacesetters in their respective fields. We also have the reputation for dealing with contemproary issues in education and for planning alternative futures. This school is also very flexible, encouraging tailored coricentra- tions and self-directed learning. " The undergrad- uate program has stabilized while the graduate program has expanded and continues to expand especially through outreach efforts. " This is the only state School of Education in Massachusetts offering a doctoral program in education. Our gra- duate outreach programs extend to both Worces- ter and Boston in order that working professionals may continue thejr education. " Dean Fantini would like to see more emphasis in the future on such issues as outreach, student access, international education, collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in medical education, with the Harbor Campus on inservice, and with business and industry on hu- man resource development. He feels that the School of Education is taking a broader view of its role encompassing a concept of learning in the total community rather than just to schools and classrooms. Dean Fantini advises his graduates to remem- ber that education extends beyond a job, serving to increase the students ' control over their own lives. " This is a difficult period for teachers, " says Fantini, " Yet there is always room for good teach- ers. Moreover, learning can also be applied to other areas such as parenting, internati onal educa- tion, human services and business and industry. " Dean Fantini applauds those dedicated students who have remained in education despite the cur- rent obstacles awaiting them after graduation. -Maureen McNamara June 2, 1981 HitmwnwHmiiSM ' ■waMil iiltaM i wm. iflciaHl fiSiivt;!

Jones Dr. Russel Jones is currently enjoying his fifth year as Dean of the Engineering School. Prior to his arrival at UMass, Jones studied at the Carne- gie-Mellon Institute where he received his PhD in Civil Engineering. He then spent eight years teach- ing at MIT followed by another six as Department Head at Ohio University. Jones is justifiably proud of his school. " This Engineering School is ranked second only to MIT in New England. Also, our Manufacturing Engi- neering and Polymer Science Engineering depart- ments are ranked first in the entire country! " Jones continued, " Being of such high quality, the engineering curriculum is a rigorous one. Half the students entering the program either leave or switch to another program by senior year. But the rewards are there for those who stick out the full four years. " Cites Jones, " Engineers can expect to graduate this year with an average of 8-10 job offers each. Even in slow years graduates can count on at least 2 offers. " Jones feels that the phenomenal growth of the high-tech industry will guarantee career opportunities for years to come. Since engineering is a field where knowledge is continuously being updated, keeping abreast of new technology is a major problem facing profes- sional engineers. Because of this, the School of Engineering offers a unique program known as the Videotape Instructional Program. In this pro- gram, companies can request taped University lectures complete with notes, homework, and ex- ams in order that their engineers may continue their education without having to travel to the Amherst campus. Jones listed " more interaction with industry and more off-campus education " as two changes he would like to see in the near future. " Also, a larger school of education for Electrical and Com- puter Engineering is needed since student enroll- ment in these two disciplines has doubled over the last five years. " Dean Jones lists two orders of advice for gradu- ates of his school: " First, get more education. Start on your Masters degree, whether it be full or part time. By attaining it you will have a keen advantage on the competition. Secondly, always be professional. Use your degree toward some purpose which will benefit society. Engineering should be a Mearned art in the spirit of public assistance. " -Maureen Mc Namara HE SAID... fwcmm ' y Of iHERienrira- iW LEEQUM vlS " !!HMHMW. ' . BEEN T IT m, IWfeMT?EM.
