VHS??? issues 1972 was a national election year, the first that 18 year-olds had the right to vote. In this section the Savitar looks at three areas where this decision has changed the look of political campaigns. l . hey call it Canvassmg November 4 was one of the first really chilly mornings in Columbia, the kind that stiffens up engine oil so a car strains to start and a cold dew collects on everything and urges people to strain to start. At 5 a.m. that morning, with the sun far below the hori- zon, a chartered, nearly empty Greyhound bus rumbled in front of the Memorial Union. Aboard were less than a dozen, sleeping souls, most of them from Stephens College. A passerby e had there been one - would have had no trouble knowing why the bus and the people were there. Dimly lit by a streetlight was a blue and white placard on the busts side: MCGOVERN-SHRIVER ,72. By mid-morning, the bus would take about 15 Columbia students to Kansas City where they would be knocking on doors for George McGovern during the last weekend before the election. They called it ttcanvassing." The trip wasntt news when it happened and it isn't news now. But it was a small, human facet of the 1972 campaign e the first in which 18 to 20 year olds could both campaign and vote. Canvassing was a big part for everybody involved with a particular candidate, even though Gubernatorial candidate Ed Dowdls son Doug may have been the only one who got headlines for doing it. Perhaps the story of one McGovern student telling about one street in one town in one state may not explain defeat at the polls three days later but it will give a glimpse of what the campaign meant to new voters, the footsoldiers of the campaign. When the Columbia students got to the Jackson County Democratic Headquarters in Kansas City, they met a larger group of students from Kansas who had begun work a day earlier. The students were from Kansas State, whose foot- ball team the Tigers were to play that afternoon. But nobody ever talked about the game. By Jim Polson Photos by Bruce Bisping somewhere else, where they were told what to do; ttThe map shows your precinct, you are to handle the streets marked in red, the sheet on the right is a list of registered voters. Ask them politely if they plan to vote for Senat0r McGovern on Tuesday. If they say no, politely leave. If they say maybe or they dont know put a two or threetdown by the name and ask them if they want any campaign inforrna. tion or if they need a ride to the polls. If they say yeS, put . down a one, ask them if they need a ride or information and if they can help us on election day. L ttIf theytre not a one, two or a three, leave. Dontt give any. body a hassle." t Then, everybody loaded up in cars again only to be dropped off in places they had never seen before. They started asking people if they would vote for McGovern. Some of them did pretty well. They were invited into houses to give their pitch and maybe even won sdme votes. The campaigner we followed was not so fortunate. He pounded on doors for two blocks in Independence before he even found a three, much less a one or'a two. As one resident in a large, White house said, "Kid I voted for Dewey in 48 and Pve voted Republican ever since. Do you know how far away Harry Truman lives from here?! uWell, I sure seem to be on the wrong street, sir." "Youtre damn right, son." After a while, the neighborhood kids found out about the stranger who was walking down the street looking for Dem. ocrats. A half dozen of them piled in a red t48 International pickup and drove by constantly, yelling ttfour more yearsf Naturally there-were some Democrats a even some peo- ple who would vote for McGovern. They were young or old, but rarely in between. At the last house on the street, he stopped a retired man who was mowing his lawn with a garden tractor and asked him how he would vote. The man scowled at the campaign button on the coat before him and growled, ttYep, Itve made up my mind. Pm sure as hell not votin, for that tinhorn president we got now," and followed that up with a 15-minute discourse praising the ttpeoplets populists? A few hours later, having been transferred back and forth to several different offices, the lead-calved campaigners ate dinner at a hospital, went back to another office and were split up. Some did bookkeeping, some wrote letters. A lot, having worn out their feet, proceeded to wear out their lingers and canvassed by phone. They found a few ones, twos or threes and some uWell, I don't think thatts any of your business, do you?" By 10 p.m.., when the calling stopped, our campaigner with the Republican street was having a jeering conversa- tiorlil, mostly unprintable, with a picture of McGovern on the wa . . They went back to the Democratic Headquarters, rolled out their sleeping bags, grabbed a beer and stayed up m0St 3f the night. And then went back to work again the next ay. It wasnt all over until Tuesday night, when they sat together in a motel room, their eyes glazed with tears and vodka and riveted to a TV set. That was when George McGovern looked them square in the eye and told them theytd done a good job. They couldn't smile and they couldnt cry. They just sat there. ii: S oon, everbody was loaded up in cars and shipped off By 10 p.m. when the campaigmng canvasser was my .1 e r Hemuml. 81.1tel .1;1D..L.EV8 amwpow gnraGe ch manMm humwpmo With the decrease in the voting age, campus campaigning took on a new emphasis.

Two students, aware of their new responsibility in government, decided to take an active part in the political races. But instead of merely cam- paigning for the candidate of their choice, these two students WERE the candidates of their choice. Wendy Gray and Gary Belis both were juniors when they decided to enter the City Council race. Both had interests in politics that dated back to high school; both had worked for candidates in elections; both wanted to bring up issues previously ignored; both are dedicated students; both cam- paigns were marked by invalidated petitions or other regis- tration problems; but eventually both got on the ballot. Wendy Gray came to Columbia from Cleveland, Ohio. Her real political interest developed in 1970, when she worked for the re-election of Cleveland Mayor Carl Stokes. She came to the University to major in social work, and became active in Boone County Tenants, Inc., and worked on the emergency relief fund for Bangladesh. Gray'sinterest in Columbiats City Council began over a year ago when she began attending City Council meetings regularly. She began to think about becoming a candidate for the Sixth Ward seat in December. "After attending City Council meetings for a year, I developed an interest in the city. Also, being a student, I had a different point of View to bring up to the Council which had been ignored before. With that, and with the knowledge of some of the communi- ty problems, I decided to run." Before she could begin campaigning, however, Gray needed to get her petition signed and validated. This proved to be a problem in itself. Her first petition was ruled invalid because some of the signatures were not eligible. For her second try, she went door-to-door herself, talking to the peo- ple she hoped to represent. She was surprised by some responses. ttMost of my support was from students, but I got telephone calls when I first filed from people saying they were told people, who were supporting me. I was really surprised? Grayts competition came from two men, including incum- bent Clyde Wilson. Gray discussed her campaign with Wilson at the beginning, and they agreed they would proba- bly split the vote if someone else filed in the Sixth Ward, which someone did. Although Gray had a campaign manager, the campaign was carried on mainly through her friends. She held a few Organizational meetings at the beginning of her campaign to decide whether to raise money, but made few expenditures fOT GaInpaign advertisements. Gray didntt issue any press releases for a couple of reasons. ttI was going to do a lot of speaking engagements atld have a lot of interviews, and I felt this covered my YICWS pretty well." Plus, she did not have enough time to 13.919 Press releases. ttl was really ignoring my schoolwork. It's really difficult, running a campaign and keeping up With school at the same time? lhgogslmg was the major issue in Grayls campaign. "I feel forcpdo umbia has good building codes, but they arentt en- dvtel'l I believe that especially the older housing that has igarloratetl a little should not be torn down if they can be WJUUP. It s also a lifestyle to these people to live in an old I; lulh Instead of a sterile apartment building. Columbia rlou d have more inspectors to enforce the codes." Also on her priorities list were open Council meetings and more parks and recreation land. But Grayis campaign had many problems. t'Part of the problem was that regular Columbia residents werentt taking me seriously; they werentt believing that I had ideas, that I was capable of thinking about the problems of Columbia. I think they thought it was cute that someone so young would take an interest in Columbia politics." Other problems included lack of time to run an effective campaign, and fear of taking too much support from Clyde Wilson, causing a split vote. And just five days before the election, Gray announced she would drop out of the race. Not wanting to leave her supporters without an alternative, Gray threw her support to Wilson, the candidate closest to herself, and the eventual winner. Although she had dropped out of the race, Grayys name still appeared on the ballot. Despite the publicity her withdrawal received, she still captured several votes in her ward. As Gray looks back on her campaigning, she feels it was far from being a failure. ttBy the time I decided to drop out, Itd brought out the issues I wanted to. For the first time in Columbia, the problems of students and young people were finally being talked about, discussed and considered, which I think is quite important." Gray also believes having students run in a City campaign will turn into a trend. ttStudents now have an obligation to look at the candidates and the issues and decide at the end of two years whether the Council has carried out what they wanted, and then decide whether to re-elect them. Hopefully, what's best for the students is whats best for the community." Gray said she will stay involved in City politics, attending City Council and Planning and Zoning meetings ttlike I always have. But I dont see any intentions of running again." By Merrill Perlman Photos by Bruce Bisping ary Belis' decision to run for City Council from H G Fifth Ward developed almost parallel to Gray's. Bel; has a long history of political involvement, including Can paigning for Tom Eagleton in St. Louis in 1968, and HCtin as canvassing coordinator for Stuart Symington in 197L Since coming to the University to major in political SCient and journalism, Belis, political career has blossomed. In February, 1972, Belis was general Chairman of m Democratic Mock Political Convention. Until this SUWerv gubernatorialprimary, he campaigned for Joe Teasdale, Hz was elected a McGovern delegate to the county Democraliv convention, and there was named an alternate to the Stat; convention. Belis attended both the Republican and Demg cratic conventions in Miami Beach as a reporter fOFth; Maneater. This fall Belis , was the student organization chairman for Rory Ellingerfs unsuccessful bid for a Stat representatives seat. , The decision to. run for City Council was made dun'ng Christmas break. ttI thought on the expanded Council tfmm four members to sixt there should be at least one person who represented the half of the population that is students.' Belis discussed his desire to run with ,Debbie Barber, thg student who gave the nominating speech for Eagleton, and Fran Fruehrwho also desired to run. NWe were afraidol splitting the liberal vote." The group never reached acon. census because ttBarber took herself out of contention and Fran wanted to run anyway." Belis had a registration problem too: he lived in Hatch Hall dormitory, which is in the Sixth Ward. One week before he filed his petition, Belis moved to Hudson Hall. just across College Avenue, but in the Fifth Ward. He didnt want to run in the Sixth Ward because "I didnft think Clyde Wilson was an incumbent who needed to be thrown out? . One week after he filed his petition, Belis was notified that his name could not be placed on the ballot since he was not registered to vote in the ward he was running in. Belis said there wasnothing in the petition that said he had to be registered in the ward he filed in, and he couldntt change his registration. The books were closed due to other elec- tions. But the books were reopened, and Belis found that the County Clerk had already changed his registration. ttThe whole hassle could have been avoided. It produced a lot of damaging headlines at the time. A lot of people worried that it would do more damage than it did. It hap- pened so early in thewcampaign though, that by the end of everything, most people had forgotten about it." Belis canvassed door-to-door in his ward, although he concentrated mostly on the student community, includinga large dormitory population. Money wasnt a problem in the campaign. ttI decided that radio and TV werentt good eX- penditures because .five-sixths 0f the people who watch and listen cantt vote for you anywayf Instead, Belis put mostot his money into brochures mailed to the homes in his ward explaining his priorities. , - Like Gray, Belist main issue was housing, and the need for more housing inspectors and a-regular inspection sched- ule. He said he proposed that non-returnable softdrink and beer cans be banned, and he put great emphasis on tht- transportation of school children. He favored setting up3 sidewalk and bike system for safety, and emphasized long' range planning and zoning. Belis, campaign began paying off when the Columbia Tribune endorsed him in the Fifth Ward race.

At this point, Belis began Hpouring rnoneyu into radio spots. But Belis carried only one of the three Fifth Ward precincts, capturing 241 votes and coming in third of four candidates. He said he was glad it was Fran Frueh he had lost to since they had similar views. Belis explained where he went wrong. HI conducted my i campaign poorly. There are two factors to which I attribute my loss. The first is the degree of apathy among the student voters here, both those who were registered and didnt vote, and those that didnt bother to register at all. Second was a failure on my part to make the transition from working for a candidate to being a candidate. All the little organizational and minor details that I did when I was working for a can- didate, I continued to do when I was a candidate, which was a very large error. I should have spent more time doing the things a candidate should do, like getting out and meet- ing people and going to coffees. I came across exceptionally well on a one-to-one basis. The area which I did not get to personally was the area where I got the least amount of votes. ttI did not cultivate some of the liberal community leaders early in the campaign, and Fran Frueh had them locked up before I could get to them. I concentrated too much on the student community until it was too late. The Tribunets en- dorsement proved I had community support and did not scare people with being a wide-eyed radical." But, ttI was very pleased with the election. I got over 100 votes in non-student areas. People were not paranoid about me running, but were very mature, Fm glad I ran. I raised issues that wouldntt have been raised on the problems of the student community. Ithink now the community is much more aware of students in the community, and I hope more students will be appointed to positions on Council commis- sions." As to the future, Belis said he will become a permanent resident of Columbia, and will take over as editor of the new Associated Students of Missouri state-wide magazine carrying legislative information to students across the state. Belis doesnt know if he will run for City Council again. ttIf'a more conservative Council had been elected, I would be keeping a closer eye on it than I now plan to. With the liberal nature of the Council, maybe there wont be a need for me to run. Itm the type of person who likes to criticize. I dont like to pull punches. Thatts good for a journalist, but bad for a politician." During the campaign Belis said, ttI learned about my per- sonal assets and liabilities as a campaigner. Its good to have these lessons out of the way at 21. At 21, its not a last hurrah.n iii 37 Missouri Students The administration felt I was being uncoo erative simply ecause I was uncooperativef Dan Viets SA a what did it do this year? Besides demonstrate at l President Ratchford's investiture and experience the! first impeachment ever of a vice president and totally I alienate its other vice president. In spite of what a lot of people think, or say, Dan Viets looks back on his administration as being one of acf complishment. A revised and improved MSA Constitution was adopted, the University Assembly was established and a more services were provided for UMC students. Services like the initiation of a legal advisory council twhich Was discontinued in Januaryl, gynecological services at the Student Health Center twhich lasted only momentarilyj and of course, the usual components of Student Activities: Con. certs, speakers, films, etc. Viets admits these are not his personal accomplishments. "Any of these things are not my accomplishments, but they are things that occurred during my administration. Like University Assembly was an accumulation of at least four or five years of hassling the administration and it wasntt me by any means that accomplished that? There were other accomplishments too a the kinds of things that are intangible. uI think maybe some of the more important things are not so tangible, and I hope they will continue to be built upon. Like building within the associa- tion of the student body a feeling of identity with each other, a feeling of community with common interests, goals, problems and a feeling that through the association, students can provide themselves with these services and can further their own goals and desires. "MSA is, believe it or not, about as advanced in these goals as any student association in the country I am aware of. We have about as much input into the governing of this institution as almost any student association in a state sup- ported school in the country. ttWetre making significant progress in establishing the kinds of services that most student associations are just talking about. The student store and lobby are things in a nationwide movement right now, and wetve had them for a couple of years. And wetve got one of the most effective as- sociations in the sense of providing services like the con- certs, films, and speakers which everyone immediately identifies as existing but they dont know MSA is the source. We are providing the most services and making the most progress toward the most contemporary student asso- ciation in the country. Name any issue welre involved in: Gay peoples rights, woments rights. These are the issues across the country. Not just the Midwest or just backward Columbia, Missouri. "There are private schools, of course, where its easier to make progress because theres not a state legislature hanging over them. The point is, if were going to go any fur- ther with the Missouri Students Association than other student governments across the country, then its going to call for a student community feeling. People have got to see they have common interests and problems. Students must have the realization of what MSA is doing for them. Itts not just in 200 Read or just the Senate but MSA is the student body and everyone is a part ofit." But if one looks at the general apathy on this campus, it,5 obvious not everyone is a part of MSA and what its doing for them How does interest in MSA stack up with that Of the rest of the campus? Viets says "As far as MSA goes, the level of interest has increased. Maybe that s an optimistic C mdne'kf r-enp-o-u-tmmr-t't-it-tn. Viewpoint. Some people look at the statistics of how many t1: vote in the general election'but thafs not a good indicator guy because it has too many variables. What MSA accomplishes t is going to be directly proportional to what its membership ets puts into it. The level of apathy has lessened. The fact that ac. we have accomplished more 1n recent years shows that. ion nwhat MSA is domg now seerns a little more relevant to 1nd the real world: Thatis'another thing. Wetve got to instill in Ces students to quit thinklng 0f the campus'and off campus as vas something other than the real world. This is the real world the and MSA, the student body, the institutions of the Universi- ty are real. Its not like welre here preparing to go out in the :1? real world e- were in it. ASM tAssociated Students of Mis- souri on page 4Zl has accepted this. Wetre taking part in our Its. government and we're influencing how the administrators ley are going to vote. We also worked for student involvement ike in city affairs. We worked for voter registration. . 0r "Therels still the argument that students are too transient by to patticipate in city government. But a change of attitude is needed. Students not only have the right to be a part of the 0f , city government, but they have the responsibility. Students m should be able to represent their views. Its not just the Iill principle of the thing. Students pay the sales tax. A pedes- trian campus will affect them and indirectly they are paying tch property tax through their apartment rents? Transiency is even more of a problem for University students on campus than it is in the community. Viets at- nd tributes his clashes with the University's administrators throughout his term as MSA president to this feeling of students impermanence. But then, ttthere have always been clashes with the administration. In the past year, there has 115 been continuity in the goals of MSA that had been around 1p. two years before. The administration started to realize that MSA is not as transient as it once was thought to be. The he basic assumption people make is that students are transient ist and they'll only be around four years so there's no need to 1 a let them make decisions. But thatts not true. A lot of us are ra around for more than four years. Besides, if were not going as- to represent the people coming after us then nobody is. m- "No matter how transient students might be, adminis- 21y trators tend to be a lot more transient. Since Ilve been here he welve had three Deans of Students, two University Pres- he idents, two Chancellors and numerous changes in faculty. m. In a lot of ways students are more secure than the adminis- in: tration. They have more legal recourse, and really the Uni- teS versity exists for the students." rd The biggest clash Viets had with the administration this year concerned the freezing of MSA's outside accounts. to When funds were allocated by MSA to set up a legal ire counsel service, the administration froze MSA,s supple- 1r- mental budget. As a result of this action, Viets claims his ter administration was greatly hindered. t0 HThe struggle with the outside accounts kept us from ee doing an awful lot of things. The outside accounts issue was ISl never important because of the dollars in the accounts, but i tot rather because of the principle behind it. MSA has the right tThe administration realized . rnt to exist as a corporation. We've got to establish once and for ; Eli that students association is a separate entity from the in- we were WllhIll'lg t's Stltution.

But I say there's good reason to be uncooperative in many instances. ttWhen Woerner took office and the budget became unfrozen, it was not due to entirely his efforts. The things accomplished during an MSA presidentls administration are very rarely the accomplishments of that president him- self. The unfreezing was more of a result from a continuing process which didntt break during the election. Many ad- ministrators were waiting for that election before they would make any kind of important announcement of the outside accounts, hoping that someone would be elected who would be a little more cooperative than I had been. They felt that was the case with Paul. ttFortunately Paul took no action on his own. The checks and balances system was still working. The Senate was still of the same mind as under my administration and the ad- , ministrators realized that MSA was not a transient thing. Its a system of government that is sophisticated. They also realized the waiting game was not going to pay off. These same basic attitudes had been gelling two years earlier. uThe administration agreed to unfreeze the funds provided the money would not .be spent until a mutual agreement had been made on what it was to be spent. We held out and I think we won significantly. We still have the accounts, and we still have the money in the accounts. These were the two basic points we set out to achievef, MSA,s new president, Paul Woerner, offered his opinion on why he was able to unfreeze the budget whereas Viets could not. ttWe were able to unfreeze the budget, in part, because of our entire philosophy. We made it extremely clear to all those involvedat all levels of the University that were willing to work with them, and that even if we did disagree with their politics, we did respect them. The previous administration apparently didn't do that, so they turned them off. They realized we were willing to work with them so therefore they were willing to work with us. We kept the principle but we got something done at the same time. We established meetings with people all the way up to the President of the University, and that had never been done before, because Dan Viets never bothered to tell them what was going on. HWe got a compromise which gained the students a lot more than Dan ever hoped to gain. What they were striving for, which was kind of the ultimate goal in the sky. I supu pose, was the idea of complete student autonomy of fees with the student governments having full and unquestioned control over student activities fees. We got recognition for students to spend fees, limited to mutually agreeable things. So long as the University is collecting fees, the University will have some control over it. We gained the right of the students to have full legal advisory programs. We didnit gain autonomy like Dan wanted but instead we gained power and influence." Although Viets might seem a ttradical" to some, at least for a campus as conservative as the University of Missouriys Columbia campus, Dan feels his administration did repre- sent the student population. mt-e'mnr-t-mt-smnf'h I-lI-O'HHHF' HI think we are pretty well representative of the student body- I think we are a little to the left, as all student govern- ments are a little bit to the left of the average student popu- lace. They are the ones who put out the effort. Theytre not necessarily radical. Leaders have to think about what ideal- ly is in the best interest of the student populace a not what the average student wantsF So why did the spring elections see a change in student government? Why didn't Viets' endorsed candidates win? Instead they lost to the New Deal partyts landslide victory. ttThe New Deal ticket had more appeal to the student body. I think its pretty presumptive to say the campus wanted to go a different direction. Even though Gross has been labelled as such, he wasnt any puppet of mine. People forget that he had campaigned very hard against me the year before. ' "The-same people have remained involved. There has re- ally been no change in the basic direction 0r,the services rendered before. The fact that the same people still take an active part in the student government indicates a very healthy attitude." But Paul Woerner does see a real change. uI think we were elected because students realized there was a need for change. A lot of the more radical student leaders will be graduating. They are actually the last group that have been involved in student demonstrations. Those left are the more conservative students, and they arent interested in conflict but in working toward goals for the student body. "The main reason I ran for office in the first place was so that we could make the student government work more closely with all aspects of University society, including the administration and faculty members who have not been cor- responded with before. At the same time the student gov- ernment should better represent the students. Wetre trying to get government at all levels by going out to living units once or twice a week. What we see as the major need of the student government right now is to increase and to improve its standing, so that students see it as their government and as a relevant government and they can have'input. HWetre trying to create an openness so that people call me up and voice a gripe. And people have actually done that. I had a person call me the other day, and wanted to know if I could do anything about his .837 grade point average. That of course is out of my power but at the same time it shows that they thought there was a possibility student govern- ment could do something for them. nThe goals the Viets, Administration set down in the Campaign were similar to ours. Unlike the Viets' Adminis- tration were trying to fulfill them." So now we must wait for another year to pass before we know if MSA will have another "dead year," a term some administrators have labelled this one. Itts up to Woerner's Administration. But more importantly, it is up to the Student body's becoming a part of student government. e By Teri Wheeldon tWe got a compromise which gained the students a lotX Paul Woerner 41 i i e u i f C ? Rich Davison, of the Associated Students of Missouri, waits for an apEOintment with Governor Bond. The ASM wor s on campuses throughout the state but eventually they must go to the Capitol Building to ft angthing done. Offices for the ASM ave een established in Jeff City near the Capitol. B ack when we were 32" and eye-level with adult navels, we all played tthouse" and ttcops tn robbersh and ttarmy" and ttcowboys ,n Indians" and any other adult roles we could think of. The role-playing could get quite sophisticated. My neighborhood, for example, was a Catholic neigh- borhood and in our parochial schools every week we were told of how good priests and nuns were being put in Com- munist prisons throughout Asia. Vivid stories like that make deep impressions on young minds, and so on my block we invented a game which recreated even those roles. Although nameless, it could accurately have been called ttCommies ,n Catholics." Naturally everybody wanted to be a Catholic. Well, here we are ten or fifteen years later and two or three feet taller, and we are still hot at the play-acting. Now, however, the big game around the country is Playing Poli- tics. We have our Mock Political Conventions and our Model UN's and our Mock Legislative Assemblies and all are ad- vertised as njust like the real thing!" Well, why not the real thing? Wetve got the vote. Welve got the energy and the enthusiasm. Weyve got the issues to tackle. Lobbyin is not always a party. It is basically a compromise process and it oesnit always please everyone. Much of the work must be done through legislative assistants. Naturally their power is limited and often they canit accomplish everything the lobbiers want. ASMers tay to squeeze a little more compromise out of this assistant in Jeff ity 0 why is it that between elections the politically-Ininded S students are channelled into Mickey Mouse dance com- mittees? It used to be we could say there was no alternative. But, we no longer have any excuse. An alternative now does exist for the grown-ups in the student body. The Associated Students of Missouri tASMl is the alter- native of nuts-and-bolts politics e responsible, productive, nittyegritty politics where you work with the big boys in- stead of playing with them. What is ASM? That's a pretty complex question. ASM has its fingers in many pies. It sets up candidate debates, arranges seminars between students and legislators and lobbies for 18-year-old majority rights. It accommodates a wide range of interests on campuses throughout the state. Member campuses pay dues that are based on campus size. At the present time, the organization is made up of the four University of Missouri campuses, Stephens, Westmin- , ster, William Woods, Rockhurst and Penn Valley Colleges. The center of the organization is the Columbia campus because of its central location and its proximity to the state capitol, Jefferson City. Besides having geographical diversity, the student organi- zation fosters all points of view along the political spectrum. A strong attempt has been made by ASM, Associate Director Mark Pope asserts, to make itself a cross-section of students politically, socially and culturally. ttWe've got very conservative Republicans, and very liber- al Democrats? says Pope. "For that mattter, we've got very conservative Democrats and very liberal Republicans? This is all very fine, one thinks to oneself, but an organi- zation that diverse can never get anything accomplished. Right? Wrong. ITEM: In October ASM sponsored a ttCandidates and Ideas" program which managed to lure all the candidates for the five statewide offices into public debates with their opponents. The program marked the first time the guber- natorial candidates Kit Bond and Edward Dowd shared the same platform, and the only time the attorney-general can- didates, John Danforth and Jim Spain, faced each other at any time in the campaign. The program generated front- page stories across the state. ITEM: ASM set up a Curator Selection Commission to provide the governor with a list of well-qualified people to serve on the Universityts Board of Curators. Letters asking for names were written to every faculty member, to every Chamber of commerce and to every newspaper in the dis- tricts involvedn Congressmen in those districts were also contacted for suggestions, and students then interviewed Potential nominees. A final list of eight names was sent to the governor along with a six-page report commenting on the records of the Curators up for reappointment. ITEM: After taking referendums on member campuses tit takes a two-thirds consensus among students to make any $5116 an ASM Policy Projeco, ASM lobbied for majority rlghts legislation. They did it like prose td It then appeared that the Missouri Legislature would ac- 19 fuelly pass a bill lowering the age of the majority to 18. If :3 thls actually would come about much of the credit would go y to the Associated Students of Missouri. T hey started by identifying what objections legislators had to majority rights for 18-year-olds. They then worked to dissolve those objections, one by one. A 20-page single-spaced report was prepared and sent to every state senator and representative. In it, listed by number and summary, was every Missouri statute that would be affected by a change in the age of majority. The report also dealtxwith leading arguments against 18- yearLold majority rights, For example, some legislators ob- jected on the grounds that majority age has traditionally been 21. The ASM report pointed out the age of majority has fluctuated throughout history, being set anywhere from 14 years in ancient Rome to 30 years in Sparta. The results of ASMhonducted polls were also included. They indicated that wide majorities of two important groups, University faculty and county officials across the 46 state, favored the lowering of the age of majority to 18. In addition to the well-researched report twhich numerous legislators termed ttvery impressive"l, ASM made sure that top witnesses were testifying before legislative committees. There was a parade of educators, psychologists, and students attesting to the maturity of 18-20 year-olds. ttIt was an extremely well-done job, an excellent job," Senator Maurice Schecter, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said. HThe presentation impressed all members of the committeefi Most legislators are interested in the way their mail is running, but Missouri legislators are particularly sensitive to the letters and comments from their constituents. It was with this idea in mind that the lobbying effort was further butressed with an extensive letter writing drive through the ASM Mail Service. According to Dave Foshage, a member of ASM, a total of i about 900 individually-written letters were mailed to state legislators through ASM. The figure was very large by state government standards. It is due to this well-organized campaign that it can now be safely said that the bill has the votes needed for passage. The only thing that can stop passage now is the logjam of bills ahead of it. Lobbying is not the sole function of the Associated Students of Missouri. The name of the organizatiOn was in fact changed from the Missouri Student Lobby because its members felt there were other programs that were w01th initiating. For instance, ASM has been working with the State Department of Education to design a high school course aimed at acquainting young people with their rights and re- sponsibilities. The establishment of youth advisory groups under major elected officials is another ASM project. Many elected of- ficials have expressed a desire to have greater input from their younger constituents, and ASM hopes to meet that T mb-riH'enmz-Lr'h mznn-AHm r-o-tmx One of the ASM'S major operations was to hold a le islative seminar on the Columbia campus. The pur use was to find out ow legislators thought, to inform them of stu ent interest in legislation and by doing this, influence the legislators views. Among the eleven participating legislators was the President-Pro-Tem of the Missouri Senate, the Speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives and the,Chairman of the finance committee, whose committee is in charge of bud eting the state allocations for the University. The seminar consisted o? a friendl luncheon where the legislators and students ot to know each other. T is was followed by a sometimes-less-than-frien ly meeting, where the serious business of the day was discussed. Students gave their views on the then sending 18-year-old majority rights bill and the legislators explame the process of budgeting University funds. need with the advisory groups. Another ASM project hopes to serve the needs of both legislators and students. The Missouri legislature is one of the most understaffed in the nation, and legislators have a difficult time getting their research done on bills they are sponsoring. ASM will compile a catalog of research projects desired by state legislators and other public officials, and will distribute the catalog to educational institutions around the state. A student can research a subject which interests him, and he will receive college academic credit for it. Plus, a Missouri legislator has a written report at his disposal. Internship programs are being promoted by ASM wherev- et possible. A statewide magazine aimed at campus commu- mties will begin in the fall with a projected circulation of 40,000. A proposal is under study to establish an om- butisman program operating out of the lieutenant-governore 03-108 tiia very constructive proposal," Lieutenant-Governor William Phelps terms it. 01 was very impressed with the Preparationt'l. PhelPSl remarks further illustrate the competency of ASM. All the proposals, and some are past the proposal $30.9, are good ones. But it is the organization and the pro- essxonalism that are making them go. All PTOposels and programs are outlined in neat single- meed recommendations. Each is explored thoroughly Domt by point, with plenty of good research on similar pro- grams in other states. Such solid recommendations are making ASM easily the most professional and respected student organization in the state. A friendly discussion with ASM officers is now likely to turn into a complicated discussion ofthe tax laws. ttWe dont want a 501 tel Ml tax classification, were after a 501 tot Bl? says Pat McDonnell, ASM executive director. "That makes ASM tex-exempt and tax-deductible." Yeah. And the funny part about it is he really does know what he,s talking about. TheVS what makes ASM so successful. Itts full of people who k ow what theylre talking about - they've become pros. 7 hey deal in realities and they work with the power- ful. To Le sure, the Associated Students of Missouri is still in an embryonic stage. But the embryo is looking mighty goodelE 47 lWomen always have had to do much better than men to succeed.' ttShow met, the raging battle in the Missouri Legislature be. tween Phyllis Schlafly tChairman of National Committee to Stop ERA1 and Joan Krauskopf Equal Rights Amendmem advocate, and Ill show you a woments equality movement at this University that has left little impression on students - especially males. Although many guys here feel it's time women have equal opportunities, their speech still lingers with a gamut of cliches and oozing conservatism. Don Kampschrnidt, a sophomore and a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity, asked ttWhat Woments Lib Movement? Most guys dont think there is a movement. Therets no dis. crimination against women as teachers here . . ." His fraternity brother, Tim Pearson, commented that he hadntt seen or heard too much about the movement here ei- ther. ttIt must not be too prevalent because thereis no oven showing," he said. ttI donlt really see a need for Woments Lib; women have the same amount of rights as men? Both DU,S felt their ideas would be similar to other male students. However, Greg Garrison openly defined the move- ment as ttan attempt for equalization of opportunities - not necessarily the equalization of sexes. I cant really see why the sex roles would have to change. I personally dontt try to dominate any girl I go out. with. I cant stand the clichesl hear about the movement or anything. It shows a lack of imagination? From Greektown to the dorms, apathy, conservatism and a general lack of knowledge about the movement on campus seem to be as aggravating as noxious weeds in a patch of a pure strain of grass. Mike Phillips in Hatch Hall felt that the movement was "not too bad. Theytre not making it a big deal. They dontt bother me, and I dont bother them; so it's OK. I really donttgive it a lot of thought. I dont agree with the IMsR part and with the bit about opening doors, butl think girls ought to have equal rights? In Smith Hall, John Robinson responded, "I haven't heard a lot about the movement, but I think its about time women got equal rights. It seems dumb not to have them. From what Itve talked to people about it, the movement is something thatts not on their minds a lot of the time; it doesnt come up in conversation too often." ttI know that there is a Woments Liberation Organization on campus; I know it has active members here, but where are they?" Mike Blair of Hudson Hall asked. tTm from a small town and therets no organization anywhere near woments lib. The Closest thing would be the Mary Som- mersville Library Society! I think women should get equal wages for sure, but I think theytre carrying things over- board. On the news I see all these women talking about this bull about how bad males are. A lot of these old gals need an excuse and a cause to fight because no one will ask them out on a date. I would say that since this is a Midwestern town there have got to be a lot of girls here from the country who arentt carrying around all of these liberal ideas. At most, Itd guess 20 percent of the girls here are libbers." Bill Shick, a sophomore, commented, ttI donit know too much about it . . . The only way I know about the move- ment is what I read in the Maneater and when I was an MSA Senator and Sally MacNamara would get up and give her report . . . I dont think many girls are involved in it . . at least its not very vocal. The only things I ever hear about are the ERA and gynecologist . . ." eAs a Child I was always going to be a lawyer. My mother told me I could do anything a man could? Joan Krauskopf did that. She went to school and became a practicing lawyer. Today she is the only woman professor in the law school. 1 ,3 I Joan Krauskopf Joan Krauskopf: wife, mother, lawyer, woman. Even as a child, Joan wanted to be a lawyer. Today as the only woman law professor in the Uni- versity, she teaches classes to largely males but says student reaction to her being a woman has not been excessive. ttln all my years of teaching, I was aware of only one male student who didnt feel it was my place to teach - and he had family and marital problems." Joan actively supports the Equal Rights Amend- ment because ttAt the heart of the ERA is the thing this country is all about." After doing a years research on the subject, she submitted an extensive legal memorandum on ERAts purpose to Governor Kit Bond. Joan and her husband, a psychology professor, live with their two boys south of Columbia in a home they designed themselves. ttWe have long been interested in our lifestyle. Our great dream is to go to Africa with the kids; and I swear I am going to take a trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon." Joan came to the University nine years ago. She has published some articles and is a member of the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. She was graduated from law school in San Diego, and taught in Ohio and Colorado. 50 But social values are definitely changing, particularly on the dating scene. When all the males interviewed Were asked what their reaction would be if a girl called them Up and asked them for a date, their overall response could pm an immediate shut-off valve on the number of home-town honey syndromes as well as the massive weekend exodus home by women students. All of the guys admitted they would be surprised at first, but if they knew the girl or knew of her, they wouldnt hesitate to go out. And they fur. ther added that even though they would perhaps go ttdutch" they would most likely end up paying her way! thf a girl called me up to ask me out, Ild probably go out with her, and I doubt if I'd make her pay because Iusually like to pay for it? said Mike Phillips. Only one interviewee responded negatively by saying, "1 ' would be insulted! I would regard it as a defamation of my ability to decide for myself who I want to go out with.l would say she would be overstepping her rights and social bounds. t Just because the majority of those interviewed felt that only a minority of girls here are participating in the Womenls Liberation Movement doesn't mean that it hasn't been effective and making progress. Quite the contrary. The movement has changed the whole scene here for women since the fall of 1970, the year of the march on 5th Avenue in which a bra was supposedly burned on the 50th anniver- sary of woments suffrage. - The "Betty Friedan" of this University, Ms. Torri Cor- coran, graciously explained the meaning and complexity of the movement. ltWomen's liberation is a term that has re- ally been a media term; and in many ways it has been bad because anything associated with woments rights and woments equality has been lumped into it: from extremist things like bra burning to using the term as joke material by comedians. Nobody really knows what the term means any more. Human liberation is a much better term for it; it only started out as womenls lib because we are the ones ob- viously being put in subjugated roles. Because it is such an Overused term, people that aren't working for women's lib easily misunderstand it. It is a very diverse movement. With the incident in March, 1970, woments rights became news- worthy. It has taken 50 years of extremism to make people familiar with the thought that women are concerned with liberation. They want freedom from the status quo and to advance in some way. It made an awful lot of people aware with whats going on. "I feel like rational, organized action towards liberation is what we need now rather than extremist or exhibitionist moves," Torri said. uWe have received the attention and now we need to get away from joke material to serious legislation material so that we can be taken seriously by society." ttThe Lib Movement is as equally important for men as for women. It will allow men freedoms they never had before; marriage will be an equal thing. The responsibilities will not totally be on the manis shoulders. Men will be allowed to be more emotional, more sentimental e basic and good male characteristics that men now have to suppress because they aren't labelled tmasculinef There are a lot of men who have been frustrated because they have been forced into the wage earner role. It will free men to be what they want to be and to pursue the career they want to and not necessarily because it makes the most money for supporting a wife and kids. In short, it's as good a deal for them as it is for us. I think ifs wrong for women to think only about getting married and being housewives and mothers instead of making something out of themselves. 39 ttI couldnit say how many men and women are for or For us that, S :gzlalinst the movement hyere," Torri reasoned, :tbecause in a Ie'ge communlty you re gomg to flnd a w1de variety of 1, f . 11 b opinions on anything. The idea of a concensus in student What 1 8 IS a 8 out - beliefs IS absurd. A college community has as many op1n10ns as society in general. I think, however, there is a growing amount of women here that are concerned about their inequality, . . . especially the closer they get to the ca- reer world and want to use their education. As for how many or what percentage of women here are liberation sup- porters, its just hard to say. The real activists are always the minority of the people who believe in a cause. HAWS is working for the promotion of womenis rights and needs here at the University. We have established a gynecological service; we're working on getting rid of womenis hours; we,re encouraging a university-sponsored child day-care center; we made the administrators realize that we felt women were being discriminated against tnot all the departments used to be open to womenl; and we have arranged for outstanding women in male-dominated .fields to come and speak from both the local and national level. It wasnit too long ago that the closest women came to veterinary science was to marry a veterinarian. We provide, in general, a source of information and counselling for women on campus. After all, it is the University women that are going to be running into the career problems and sometimes blatant discrimination at the places and posi- tions they would like to hold in society. We try to prepare women for the system they will be running into after school and attempt to draft legislation to correct the situation." Torri firmly believes the day will come soon when women are completely liberated. "First, we have to work on parents attitudes toward rearing children as a generation that wonit cast roles according to sex. The main input of this is to make parents aware of the problem in making a little boy define his role, as the sole support of the family, as the countryis defender and leader and as the pillar of the community. Its good for him to have these aspirations, but it isnit good if he feels he has to reach them just because hes a male. The chance of getting parents to rear 3 genera- tion of liberated kids, though, is pretty slim. So, the next best thing to do is start with formal education, getting the sexist tendencies out of the textbooks. In terms of defining roles for men and women, the worst people in the world are guidance counselors. Somehow they see women as teachers and men as businessmen." So while most students at least know of the existence of AWS and the Women,s Liberation Movement, they dont seem to be very familiar with its workings and results. There seems to be a big communications breakdown some- where . . . or else its a simple case of apathy. Marsha Carmell, a sophomore explained, ttI can see where not too many people know what the movement is ac- complishing here because its just not talked about that much, by the AWS representatives either. This University places a lot of importance on pom-pon girls and homecoming queens, and that to me opposes the tenets of womenis lib." Someone once said, ttGreat victories come, not through ease but by fighting valiantly and meeting hardships bravely." Thus, the Womenis Liberation Movement con- tinues to strive to promote equality among the sexes while students here for the most part remain oblivious to its progress. 4k 53 1ver810ns . d 54 I38. .

A Cu K g V ,lm m gisaai C ff nggg Gets ' Home By Pam Rosenberg Photos by Mark Petty After competing with the cash registers at Bengal Lair, Cof- feehouse moved to new quarters in the dungeon-like former cafeteria of Gentry Hall. Along with the new setting, the styles of music presented also changed each Coffeehouse weekend. Despite the lack of atmosphere, Coffeehouse dev- otees soon surfaced and arrived promptly at 7:30 pm. to claim their chairs. Soon the word got around that Cof- feehouse was more than a cheap date tit's freei. The as yet unnamed Coffeehouse proved to be a warm, comfortable place to meet friends and hear fine music. The 72-73 season opened with the talented, but bizarre Uncle Vinty. Looking like a dandelion gone berserk, Uncle Vinty danced, sang and stripped his way through the week- end. Armed with props, layers of theatrical costumes and original songs, he delighted and held the audience spell- bound. Before each set, he piled on half a dozen strange outfits, including Viking horn hats, textured panty-hose and the infamous jock strap. With each of his songs, he would remove a layer exposing an outfit appropriate to his next number, as the audience sat silent with eyes wide open. Uncle Vinty was unique enough to merit a review from the Maneater which made quite an issue of his removal of layers of garb; but everyone else enjoyed him. Appearing next was Fontilla, a vivacious blues pianist from New York City. Her lusty music and personality 78 packed tem in, and got somber Gentry basement jumping. Her selections ranged from Aretha Franklin tunes to several Beatles songs. Between Fontillais sets, local musician Jeny . Hiesberger performed on the acoustic guitar. Despite being bogged down by the flu, his Dylan renditions provided a nice balance to Fontillais soulful blues. Roger and Wendy, a husband and wife team, impressed their Columbia audience with original electric sounds. Roger on electric autoharp, Wendy on bass and their friend Sam ta girlJ on congas and bongos created an interesting. yet moving version of ttGimme Shelter," They invited audi- ence participation by passing out kazoos. The hit song of the weekend was an emotional lament of a young wallflower who had a heart of gold beneath a surface of terminal acne. For the first time in Student Activities history, COf' feehouse collaborated with Pop Concerts and World Cultur- al Concerts in presenting a program. The Coffeehouse fea- ture was Colours, who along with Spider John Koerner and John Hartford performed at the Livestock Pavillion. Many believe that Colours, a cowboy-iniluenced rock group from Denver, stole the show. The attractive female vocalist was accompanied by lead and bass guitars plus a bass fiddle whose knack for tttalking back" to its performer provided comic relief. Without question, the highlight of the Coffeehouse season ,4: ; M-gasuasnusog first semester was the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, from Springfield, Mo. This highly professional group of six musicians was formed only one year before their Cof- feehouse debut. Each Daredevil could play a number of in- struments well, ranging from harmOnioa to banjo, piano to drums, and guitar to mouth harp. Their combined talents produced a country rock sound of exceptional quality. Their songs ranged from comical ttChicken Train," complete with realistic noises of unhappy chickens, to the nasty blues song, "Sweet Root Man." The first set was mainly acoustic in which they played the song ttBlack Sky? Their second set was "garage-type rock and rollft mostly electric. As the amps were turned up, the audience stood up and the energy flowed. Friday night Gentry basement was packed. The following night by word 0f mouth advertising, it was filled to capacity plus. As a result of numerous requests, Ozark Mountain Daredevils was scheduled for a mini-concert in Jesse Auditorium. Between Ozark Mountaints sets, Bill and Linda Mc- Cullough, from Dearborn, Mo., played guitars and sang with fifiown-home sincerity. Bill provided the vocals, saying, iLIndats just too chicken to singf' Leading off second semester was Patti Miller and Dandelion Wine. They performed popular songs with Socially relevant messages, such as a set of Beatles songs dealing with .the themes of alienation and searching for identity. Along with her songs about ecology, Patti told in- teresting anecdotes about life' on her farm and her adven- tures on the road. Next, from Minnesota, was Jericho Harp. These two gui- tarists performed all original numbers in a folk tradition. Attempting to live up to the name of Coffeehouse, the committee arranged for coffee and munchies to be sold, because many people have requested this service since the Coffeehouse opened. However, its just so damn hot down in that basement twith a full crowdi that the soda machine triumphed. Plans are being made to provide a happy medi- um in food services. Experimentation is under way to convert the lounge area across from the tttheatre" into a cafelrecreation room. Poten- tial atmosphere may include bistro tables, colorful table- cloths, posters, candles, incense and board games which could be checked out at the Union. Thus many activities could go on at once, with the music audible throughout the entire area . Coffeehouse has found a home in Gentry Hall basement. Sound foundations have been laid to open the path for ex- pansion and experimentation. The ,72373 Coffeehouse season has been successful in its innovations and prece- dents.

To some it provides a good place to rendevous with friends or col- leagues. To some it is a place to be alone among many and to a few it is a place to catch up on some of that long overdue sleep.

We look at his guitar, the way the light bounces off of it. The strobe light makes him look kind of otherh worldly, a person set apart. These three hours belong to us. But the rest of the time, the musician whose presence captures our attention and imagination as he performs, is a stranger. When he performs, we know him. When he leaves the stage, he leaves our lives. When many musicians in a college town leave the stage, they join other students. He may be sitting next to you in history or borrowing your geology notes because he couldnit make that 7:40 class after performing the night before. And you probably can't tell him from any other student. Joe Taylor is a student musician in Columbia. About four nights a week he plays lead guitar for the Harrison Blues Family. The rest of the time he is a journalism student majoring in broadcasting. At noon Ioe usually eats in the Heidelberg, but you wouldn,t notice him sitting there. Hets wearing blue jeans; so is everyone else. He has a sweater on over a striped shirt, sleeves rolled up. His hair is long, but no longer than the rest of the students who sit there drinking beer or coffee. He blends in. If you had seen him perform at a party the weekend before you might recognize him, but it isnt likely. Because Joe on stage and Joe off stage are two different people. Like most musicians, Joe has been into music a long time. His grandparents played piano during silent movies. tTm not saying its genetic, but music was always around," he explained. uI remember watching Gene Autry when I was a kid and thinking it would be neat as heck to play a guitar or banjo. I didnlt even know the difference between the two, but you held them the same and sang? ' When his father bought himself a guitar, Joe decided it was time he learned to play. He was 11 years old and the Beatles had held their first hand in America. "From then on it just snowballed. My friends at school were playing guitars and forming bands, so I did too," Joe said. Joe played his freshman year at the University for private parties where the only payment was of the upass the hat" variety. But the Harrison Blues Family caught on and by his sophomore year Joe "wanted to get into it hardfl He tried majoring in music but didn,t like it'. Going into broadcasting was designed to help him learn the technical side of sound reproduction. "Iim not sorry I went into it, The musician has become a member of the social elite in the past decade. The skinny guitar player has become a dating status symbolf 87 v because Ilve learned some things." Because it is so easy to combine music and school here, Joe thinks 'Columbia is almost a paradise." ttYou can play a few nights a week, you get paid more than in a non-college town, and you can still go to school? Joe, like most Columbia musicians, makes most of his money from playing at fraternity dances and out of town high school dances. Like almost all musicians here, he is not a Greek, yet depends on the Greek system for most of his business. ttWithout the frets there would be no market for bands, it's what keeps you in business.n Playing at a fraternity party is different from any other kind of engagement. ttYou have to remember the party is their show. At a place like The Good Life, its the bands show." And of course at a fraternity party you have to contend with the drunks. But musicians donlt seem to mind the oc- cassional hassles. Once in a while you run into the six-foot- two-football-player-type who thinks his size is going to in- timidate you into playing just what he wants, Joe said. HYou are working for them and you do what they want," and if a fight is brewing the band members play the diplomats. The musician has become a member of the social elite, in the past decade and many people look at musicians as one step ahead on the social scale. The ttskinny guitar player" has become a dating status symbol, replacing the athlete of the sixties. This can cause some jealousy. At a frat party near Ashland a girl grabbed the drummeris arm. Her date poured a beer over the drummerls head and chaos broke out. Diplomacy and retractions of threats to kill got the band out 0fthat one. Traveling is one of the fringe benefits of playing in a By Debi Licklider 88 band, or one of the drawbacks, depending on your view- point. Joe likes it. ttWhen I was in high school I thought Missouri was St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, Hannibal, because of Tom SawyerJ and 1-70. Now I've been to every corner of the state, on all the back roads and in lots of little towns. Its nice knowing your state," he said. When he first started touring the state his long hair often got second or even third looks. Now every little town has a few of what Joe calls Hthe element," kids with long hair and freaky clothes. HTraveling around live discovered that Missourians don't say as much as most people? When the band arrives late at a high school dance and the principal is angry, he usually wontt say so. A friend of Joels calls this ttthe Missouri waltz," i.e., when you know something is buggingsomeone, but they wonlt say it. ttPlaying in a band is a game of musical chairsfl ac- cording to Joe. One of the reasons bands change so much is the character of the musicians themselves. "I donlt know if youlve noticed it, but most musicians have something weird about themf he said. HIt makes them hard to get along with. I canlt believe a band ever gets together." Joe's own pet peeve about his fellow musicians is that they Hput on airs? Some of them, especially in Columbia, think of themselves as superstars. This snobbery and con- ceit has a disastrous effect on the band, Joe said. "If you look down your nose at your audience youire fooling your- self." Although Joe thinks there is 'tno reason to be discon- tentedH as a musician in Columbia, he feels no one is going to make the big time here. "Guys think because they are big here they are the real superstar. It just isnlt so." tiYou have to realize you are a musician who is not in the t:!"'n.4 tl music world, but in school," Joe said. uIn Columbia you are playing for people your own age. They want to drink and dance hard," Joe said. uIf they aren't drinking they are more inhibited," he added. Playing for an audience of your peers is great according to Joe. The kids ask for songs the band knows and everyone has a good time. The frat party is a success without the hand carrying the whole show. At a high school it's different. ttHigh school kids are easy to please because they respect your age. They also try to relate to you." Pointing out musicians idiosyncrasies, Joe said, they always lie to each othere about plans for the future, about how much they get paid, or how often they work. And they all know they are lying to each other, it's just accepted. Ioe said he feels positive the Harrison Blues Family will cut a record, at least a 45 if not an album. "But you see, all the guys in bands say tWe're gonnat cut a recordf so maybe I'm just fooling myself. But I dont think so? The band already plays some original stuff which has been well-received. But Joe is critical of bands who use a Captive audience to try out all their own music on. If he had to pick one common-denominator for musicians, 108thinks it is ego-centricism. "Itve known the weird ones, the kind you could use on 'All in the Family! But all musicians have that element of ego-centricism about them.u The musician who is really caught up with himself per- tfllntns off stage as well as on stage. But they arent all like a . The musician is an artist. A creative person who often tends to be a little neurotic. Many of them are driven to play "1 a mysterious way. ttWhen you get sick of life you can get that sickness out by playing? Joe said. .When music is in your blood you cant put it down," Joe S31d. HIn the summer when I'm not playing, Itll sit on the jaw. bed and the guitar wont even be plugged in but I'm holding it and listening to music and thinking tWe could play thatf I physically feel bad when Itm not playing. Itts a lowf, Yet these somewhat-mystical musicians can be realistic too. ttMoney keeps the band going," Joe explained. Even if the guys in the band are all friends, its the money that keeps you together through disagreements and petty conflicts. Ioe thinks being a musician keeps you from taking your- self too seriously. And by adding to the musician role the student role, you dont have to make a commitment, because there always two things to think about, two ways to go. HIn the summer I see my friends with this gotta get a job attitude. I feel really lucky because I can play and get paid for it." The musician has always been considered a kind of gypsy and this appeals to many of them. III dont feel that I have to get tied down in a dull job," Joe said. His best friend and fellow musician went East and tried the straight life, manag- ing a liquor store. Several months later he called Joe and asked if he could get back into the band. He told Joe, ttA job just wasntt life. You are only young once. And I have to stay in a band." But being a professional can be a drag. ttThose guys who play every night, its work to them." By being a student and a musician Joe combines the best of two worlds. ttTherets no way I would just be a student," he said. ttOne of my friends and I discussed it once and we tried to figure out what we would have done on the weekends if we hadn't been playing in a band. We just couldnt fathom not being in oneft Joe can sum up what being a musician and student in Columbia has been like simple and accurately. ttItts been fun." And no one can dispute that. 5k 89 90 For those days without concerts 0r dances, speakers or plays, diversion could be found in one another. ., 5;?ka? 6W 134.: i: A t commum umvers: 92 i J ate in October 750 University service employees L walked off their jobs to protest the Universityys refusal to give their union recognition as a bargaining power. The strike left the dorms and other University facilities without food and maintenance service for 19 days. Cafeteria workers, trash-men, maids and truck drivers with food and linen deliveries stayed off the job and caused grave concern for health standards. The strike was the third in a series against the University in a 6-year-old dispute between the workers local union and the University. The Public Service Employees Union Local 45 asked the Curators for an 8.5 percent pay increase to meet the cost of living here and to catch up on back low wages. Union of- licials claimed the workers had never received the five per- cent increase voted them by the Missouri legislature in Sep- tember. The workers also wanted a 15 percent increase for workers earning less than $2.60 an hour, along with payment of health insurance benefits and two extra days of sickleave. The University claimed the union illegally shut down all the repair, maintenance, renovation and grounds works. Living conditions in the dorms deteriorated during the 19- day strike to a point that was ttnot legally proper under Mis- souri law? The Med Center also ran into problems. Near the end of the strike the Med Center had only three days supply of food left. Student support of the strike was forthcoming from some organizations. The Legion of Black Collegians issued state- ments supporting the picketing of Local 45. Several LBC members even took up signs and picketed with the workers. From its action LBC hoped to show the strike was not neces- sarily a black-white issue but an issue of right and wrong against all working people. The MSA Senate passed a resolution supporting Local 45, too. The Senate Labor Committee encouraged students working in the cafeterias to join the boycott in support of the union. But many of the students were afraid of losing their jobs if they joined the picketing workers. On November 6 the union was ordered to quit picketing and return to work. Violence erupted the next day while picketers were blocking the entrance to the General Services Building. Several of the picketers had sledge hammers and wrenches which they used to smash car windows. Med students on their way to the Med Center were also subjected to threats of violence by picketers. One student had the windows of his car smashed, and he received facial cuts from flying glass. In total, four persons had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the in- cidents of the day. Union leaders, however, claimed the Picketing workers smashed Windows of cars that tried to cross the lines. Supervising t employees slept on cots to avoid crossing picket lines. University started the violence by running down one of the union members with a car. Two union officials had been put in jail for violating the restraining order against picketing and not calling the union members back to work. The reaction of the union was formalized in a march of the workers through Columbia. As they chanted "We want a contract," they walked toward Jesse Hall under an American flag. At Jesse they were met by 30 University police equipped with helmets and night- sticks. But the workers were non violent. Their purpose at tin PhotOS by Jim Magdanz Jesse was to hold a five-minute silent vigil for their leaders in jail. For almost three weeks, students walking to class saw circles of protesters chanting in front of Jesse, the Med Center, the dorms and the General Services Building. They saw the trash build up in their dorms. Students had to take over the clean-up on their floors. Finally after 19 days, Cir- cuit Court Judge Frank Conley ordered the workers back on the job. Service returned to normal and before long the students forgot the strike. alt 97 -. a...v 4 mxx.-W. meM ' 'i' 3 , .- -; a-rga " .Zvunwb $8.14 ,5 V e5, .s-ivy THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI C.

Section 4.0101 Collected Rules and Regulations of the University of Missouri. 99 100 lthough his office may be a bit far removed from the general campus, A there is really no hiding place for the President of the University. His job is difficult, time consuming and sometimes burdensome, as he must run in- terference between different factions and he is often on the receiving end of unwarranted criticism. A presidentts job is often a lonely one, for he often wears the shackle of re- sponsibility for unpopular decisions. characteristically, he receives little credit for favorable judgments. Last February, C. Brice Ratchford, clad in a navy blue suit and a fashion- able blue and gold polka dot bow tie, sat in his stylishly sedate office in Uni- versity Hall and discussed his job, todayts students, the Board of Curators and various other topics. SAVITAR: How would you define your role in relation to students, faculty and the legislature? RATCHFORD: You put a lot into that question. The office position descrip- tion as approved and established by the Board of Curators is chief adminis- trator and academic officer . . . and this includes being responsible for every- thing: academic programs, admission of students and budgeting. Now clearly, I cant do all that. This authority has been delegated to a number of people. But of course, in the final analysis, Pm held accountable. Above and beyond that is a big part of the job called external relations. The legislature is one body we have to deal with and of course we have to deal with the Congress because of federal funds, and then we have alumni associations, foundations and parents who come to see us and a lot of other things. SAVITAR: Do you feel that you have very much individual freedom or are you to a large extent tied down by the requirements of the job, of getting things coordinated? RATCHFORD: I have found that you work as many hours as you can or want to and there is never a day that you leave here when everything is done that really should be done. Often I have to leave without getting things done that I would really like to. This is a high pressure job. SAVITAR: What do you see as the immediate future of the University taking into the account that the war is over and how this might affect admissions? And also the Presidents economic policy as regards to student financial aids? Do you think more students will be coming to school? tNote: this was very soon after Nixonts announcement and before the ramifications started to be feltl. RATCHFORD: Oh, I think well have some more students. I dont think LIf' ea, theyill come in great, great increases. We think at the Columbia campus that we may continue to increase for a long time at 100 to 200 students a year, which after all is a pretty large number of students in one sense. After all, there are some small colleges which only have a total student body of 300 to 400 students. In terms of percentages, Ithink well get our share. SAVITAR: Do you think that the University has a special obligation to the students of the state because it is a land grant institution? RATCHFORD: The bulk of our students are not well-off. Oh, yes, you see a few With big cars, but theyire the minority. Land grant schools are tradi- tionally schools of the people and we try to make an education as available to as many as we can. The new admissions policy was intended to expand the number of students coming to the University. SAVITAR: Some people have called the new admissions policy which requires class rank and test scores discriminatory. They charge that such stringent requirements reduce the number of students from minority groups entering the University because of the quality of their schools and their per- formance 0n culturally biased tests. RATCHFORD: I think that's way off base. We have tried for a long time to get more blacks and Chicanos in St. Louis and Kansas City to attend the Univer- sity. For some reason above and beyond the admissions policy, they wont come. Before, you had students from poor schools who performed well on tests but who were at the bottom of their class and these students were excluded from the University for this reason. Now with both the test scores and class rank, more can come. As a land grant university, we have a respon- sibility to reach students of minority groups. SAVITAR: How will Role and Scope affect students in the near future? RATCHFORD: It wont affect the undergraduates very much at all. The grad- uate students will be affected by the number of doctoral programs offered and the number of students admitted to each program. SAVITAR: Are you satisfied with the way the University is functioning? Are you pleased with the way it generally operates? RATCHFORD: Yes and n0. Weive been lucky. We have no major problems, but I donit think we move fast enough. SAVITAR: Why do you think this is? RATCHFORD: Money, mainly. Universities on the whole havent been ex- actly blessed with money over the past five years and were no exception. If we had money we could perhaps move a lot faster. Also our system of 102 ecision-making takes along time. Sometimes it takes a department months to decide on a curriculum change. SAVITAR: Do you like being President of a university? RATCHFORD: tHe smiles and puffs on his pipe for a few seconds and then he laughs.J I donlt know . . . Ilve never asked myself that question when I was in a job. There are some things that I like about it and some things that I dont. Mainly, Ijust do the best I can. SAVITAR: Do you think that todayts student differs considerably from his counterpart of a few years ago? RATCHFORD: tAfter a pauseJ Yes, todayts student is a lot more serious about his work than we were when I was in school. I guess we utilized our leisure time differently, too. we smilesJ I was graduated from the top of my class but then I was lucky to have attended the best high school in my state. When I went to college, my freshman year wasnit very different from what Pd had in high school. I had chemistry and Latin, but it wasntt very different. Students talk about having no flexibility . . . todayls students have more say in their education than ever before . . . more than even four years ago. SAVITAR: Some students say that because Ronald Thompson, a 27 year-old, former MUstudent, is now on the Board of Curators that the Board might be a little more accessible to the students. Do you think his appointment will be felt by students? RATCHFORD: Well really, there's little reason why the Board should be, approached by students. Ninety-eight per cent of the matters that affect students are handled autonomously by the Columbia campus. People are con- fused about where the authority lies. They blame the Board and my office for things that really donit even concern us. SAVITAR: For instance? RATCHFORD: For instance, Ithink itts wrong . . . unethical for me to decide on issues that are not in my jurisdiction . . . things that the Chancellor, Dean of Students or Dean of the School of Journalism should decide. The Board of Curators is the main policy-making body of the University but it doesn,t have time to handle the particulars of each department. There are committees whose job is to act on certain issues. They tthe CuratorsJ dontt even hire per- sonnel. I do the selecting of personnel and then refer my selections to the Board for its opinion. Many times, the Board acts on things that have already been decided. Such as at the last meeting we officially conferred diplomas 0n the students who finished last semester. .5- a439, SAVITAR: In that case, I think therets a great deal of misunderstanding among students and faculty members as to the real role of the Board. To what do you attribute this? RATCHFORD: I dontt know. The Board of Curatorst bylaws and guidelines are printed so that the public has access to them. Perhaps we need this infor- mation emphasized in our orientation programs. Sometimes students come here tindicating his outer officeI to voice a grievance that has nothing to do with this office. They are usually screened and counseled to go see the com- mittee that should handle their problem. Sometimes I get calls at night while Im at home. Often at Curator-student rap sessions, students will ask us ques- tions about things that we,ve never heard of and we just sit there and look at each other because those things don,t concern us. I don,t think many students know it, but the Curators largely act on things that are originated by the ad- ministration . . . on suggestions from students and other committees. They review and make recommendations. SAVITAR: Do you think campuses have quieted down in the past four years? RATCHFORD: There,s no doubt about it. Of Course during the so-called campus unrest of the sixties, those who were demonstrating were a minority. Most students today are concentrating on their studies. I got a letter from a man who has several hundred acres and a farm who wrote that he was tired of paying taxes that went to the education of longhaired, unappreciating students. So I invited him to visit with us on the Columbia campus sometime. Todayts students are much more responsible than we were and they work hard and I hope they continue to work hard. is By Dorothy Gaiter Photos by Dave Touchette 103 .J er,- Vem m 805 .m .H d .1 O n 88 1m7 howhd e . ti t br$ N aner +L 0 7.

"I was born three years too early. In about three years this Journal- ism School is gonna be really something? The World-Famous University of Missouri School of Jour- nalism tWFUoMSoD has always been really something, but lately something less than before. Not that the School has really slipped, just that it hasntt quite kept up with changes in technology and style that have overtaken the profession of journalism. The real problems began in the middle 19605 when the University-wide budget slashings ate away at the Schools ability to make expensive equipment changes needed to keep pace. . For years it had a license to put a 100,000-watt educa- tional radio station on the air, but no money. The Mis- sourian was still using linotype when other papers were making the first conversions toward computer operations. And the approaching retirement of Dean Earl English, head of the Journalism School since 1951, had further stagnated things. Everyone knew Dean English was going to have to quit soon; no successor was in sight. A bitter intrafaculty fight was developing between those who wanted an educa- tor for the job, and those who wanted a professional man as Englishts replacement. Between the budget crunch and the impending change of command, there seemed to be no for- ward movement at all. And three years from now? If its presses hold out, The Missourian will be almost completely written, edited and typeset on Cathode Ray Tube equipment. KOMU-TV has ex- panded its Six OtClock news to a full hour and holds down about 59th, audience share on all three of its newscasts. The station has converted to color cameras and color film, and is looking toward the day when it will discard film almost completely in favor of videotape. KBIA-FM has merely brought really good radio to Columbia. Maybe you were born three years too early, Jim. Therets always Graduate School. . The man who reversed the decline and fall of the WFUoMSoI is Roy Fisher. A native Kansan, he had the au- dacity to get his education at KU instead of Missouri. He worked on Nebraska and Kansas papers until 1945, when he made the big move to the Chicago Daily N ews. Thatts where Roy Mac Fisher made his mark as a profes- sional newsman, except for a six-year stint as an exec with Field Enterprises Educational Corporation, and one year as a Nieman F ellow at Harvard. He started on the Daily News in that hallowed spot of Chicago journalism, the police beat. By Don Brownlee Photos by Jim Magdanz 106 a ife He wound up as the paper's editor, picking up a Sigma Delta Chi Public Service Award, National Headline Award and the Chicago Newspaper Guild's Page One Award for himself along the way, in addition to doing much of the work on a story that won his paper a Pulitzer Prize. What lured Roy Fisher away from a high-paying job in Chicago and a beautiful home in an exclusive community along Chicagds suburban North Shore? Simply speaking, he saw an opportunity to do something more. In one of his last Chicago Daily News "Letter From the Editort' columns, he explained that he was making the move because as a news- paper editor, he had seen that ttnewspapermen live by the quick draw. This fact of life accounts for much of the imper- fection in our communications media today. While perhaps no greater now than before, these imperfections are more visible. Our madly dynamic society demands more of its journalists." Fisher had seen from his office .above the Chicago River that ttthe typically American answer to our present com- munications gap has been a massive infusion of talent, energy and technology into our industry. More people are at work trying to communicate ideas today than ever before? Sixty-five hundred students a year were coming from accredited journalism schools into the professional job market, but he believed that the 2070 increase in journalism school enrollment over a two-year period had been "more a symptom of our problem than its solution . . . we are overwhelmed daily with communications, often to the point that we cannot separate what to believe from what to disbe- lieve. Communications, both as a social and a technical art, needs not only more and better trained people, but new technology and more highly perfected techniques." And he believed that Missourfs School of Journalism was well-equipped to provide some answers to the problems besetting the profession of journalism,. problems hets seen as he tried to run a paper in the only town left that has four competing dailies. HI started Visiting journalism schools when Ibecame editor of the Daily News, and noticed a great variation in the quality of curriculum. And I also saw edu- cators faced with a dilemma as to the role journalism Fisherts uick work in making long-neeaed changes made many View him as the man who would finally get something done. should play in society." Of the many schools Editor Fisher visited, ttthe most fascinating place I saw was UMC, where the faculty had the opportunity to develop skills more related to the needs of practicing journalists than at other schools." Dean Roy F isher arrived in Neff Hall to stay on April 1, 1971. When Dean Fisher moved into his corner office in Neff Hall, there were a whole bunch of things coming at him. The first crisis he had to deal with was The Mis- sourian. The paper had been faced with big deficits for three or four years a a $22,300 loss in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1971. The papers long financial problems had precluded any real upgrading of equipment, but the printers Went on strike and Fisher saw the opportunity to make the 107 changes. "We had an interesting meeting with the Board 01 Trustees of the Missourian Publishing Association . . . in which I asked for the authorization to put in new press equipment . . . Spend about $100,000 out of the reserve fund of The Missourian. This almost completely exhausted the papers reserves. And the Board was naturally reluctant to see all their cushion go, because theytd been living on that cushion for three or four years. And here I came in, brand new, and I was going to spend everything theytd had in the kitty to change over to offset and get into a modern plant. And of course some of them thought this was terrible, and they Werentt going to vote me the authority. I just got up and said I didnt come down here to preside over the dissolutionment of The Missourian. This is an emergency fund, and what Im trying to tell you is youtre in an emer- The most antiquated newsroom I ever saw was the Missoumants. gency. Whether you know it or not." He got his money; The Missourian was converted to offset almost overnight. His gamble with the papers kitty worked, and now The Missourian is solidly in the black. Fisher es- timates this year ittll return about $40,000 to the reserve fund, uunless we decide to go out and buy some more CRTs." Fisherts quick work in making long-needed changes in The Missourian made many view him with awe as the man who would finally get something done. He still keeps pulling money out of nowhere to pump new life into the worldts oldest established school of journalism. The next move was to get KBIA on the air. Fisher managed to come up with thousands of dollars to buy equipment, and the station sent out its first broadcasts about a year after he arrived on campus. KBIA took off so fast it didn,t realize just how effective it was, until it ran a story about a draft dodger now living in Columbia under an assumed name. A few days after the story ran, the station got a call from the Jefferson City Bureau of the FBI. Panic raced through the stationts news staff, and people had visions of reporters doing newscasts from Boone County Jail. They were sure their phones were tapped. Faculty members tried to downplay the incident, even to the point of denying to outside reporters that the FBI had ever called. The Missourian killed the story at the sugges- tion of Dean Fisher; KBIA also decided not to run it. Jour- nalism students were hurt by this treatment. They felt threatened by the FBI and saw the Dean as sitting on the biggest story of the year. The Tribune and KFRU ran it. Roy Fisher maintaned all along that it was just a routine inquiry, nothing to get excited about. Eventually he was proven right. Nobody had tipped off the agent; hetd been driving along in his car, listening to KBIA the way he usually does. He heard the story and thought it was some- thing hetd better check out. He talked with Fisher and the reporters involved, and they told him what they could. ttThere were two kinds of information we couldntt give him. One was information we didntt know, the other was information we werentt authorized to give him: We couldntt give him the name, and we couldntt give him any information to identify the person. And we explained that to him and said well do the best we can otherwise." 108 Above: Sarah Gainer works the boards in the KBIA news room while Jack Hubbard, public affairs director, tapes an interview for the ttnews hour."

Once in Chicago, a city-wide manhunt was on for the suspected killers of two Chicago policemen. The suspects had been identified and were afraid to turn themselves in for fear of police reprisals e shot while resisting arrest. Eventually they surrendered to the States attorney with the Chicago cops hot on their trail, in the office of Daily News Editor Roy Fisher. The Daily News got a great scoop, because its hard to miss a story when its happening in your own building. Thatts assuming your editor thinks its a news story. Roy Fisher knew that surrender in his office was a great news story. But to him, a simple investigation into a radio feature just wasntt news. ttThe FBI gets about half of its leads from newspaper and broadcast stories, and they follow up on them. They follow up on them quite routinely, and they dontt expect to get very much . . . but sometimes they get a piece of information that might be useful to them? Students were upset when the story of the FBI visit didnt make it in The Missourian, or on KBIA or KOMU. uThis is the reaction of a naive individual, who isntt familiar with the realities of the media, and with what we consider news and whats not news. The fact that the FBI makes a routine investigation is not news. If they say give us the' names or well subpoena you, then we would carry a big story on it. But they have their job to do, a legitimate, proper job, which is to follow up leads wherever they can. There is nothing at all wrong with their coming in and asking us for infoma- tion, and therets nothing wrong with our not giving them the information they want . . . they recognized this when they called us. I got several calls from The Missouriants people asking to do a story on it, but I told them in my judg- ment this was a routine affair, and the sooner our students Communication needs not only more and better trained people but new technology and more highly perfected techniques. learn you dontt fly into a tizzy the moment somebody else thinks a story is a story, the sooner theytll become profes- sional newsmen. One of the definitions of news is that when a routine operation takes an abnormal turn, then its news." Having a few students thrown into jail for a while might have helped Roy Fisher with another problem hets had to solve, because the WFUoMSoJ is suffering from a popula- tion explosion. Enrollment jumped 9W0 in Fall 1971 and another 12th, in Fall 1972, topping the 1000 mark for the first time. ttWe,ve either got to limit enrollment or get additional buildings, teachers and equipment. Its a physical law that you cannot continue to expand without expanding resources." The J-School has already taken the first steps toward limiting its growth by raising its entrance 109 requirement from a 2.0 GPA to a 2.25. nI expect that by fall well have to raise that to a 2.5 . . .but we cant get by just using that as a means of limiting enrollment. A 2.5 might stabilize it . . . ittll give our undergraduate program more nearly the character of our graduate program, where the average student has a 3.2 admissions record? But Fisher isntt really enthusiastic about the measures prospects for success. Hets tried to check and see how many students now enrolled wouldnt have made it through the Neff Hall doors under a 2.25 requirement. 21 dont think it would have affected more than a few people." It seems strange that journalism school enrollment is going up, not just at MU but everywhere, at a time when polls show journalists only a little bit more trusted than pol- iticians. HEnrollment is going up and up because this gener- ation of students is more concerned about becoming in- volved in society, and sees an excitement about having a ringside seat in this civilization we live in. They,re looking for ways to have a part in the action . . . the most explosive changes going on in mass media give them a feeling of ex- citement, almost of adventure." All these adventurers are overcrowding Journalism Schoolis old buildings. Students were threatening to drop out of an Ad Prin lecture section because there were more students registered for the course than there were seats in the lecture hall where it met. The University didntt pay for either Neff Hall or Walter Williams Hall in the first place; one was a gift, the other a Depression-era WPA project. But until another wealthy donor gives the University the land and money for a building the Journalism School is stuck with buildings designed for the days when enrollment was about half what it is now. There were, however, other factors limiting the Our madly dynamic society demands more of its journalists. WFUoMSoTs potential. uThe most antiquated newsroom I ever saw was The Missouriants," but the problem went .beyond that. A lot of people felt the profs teaching at the J- School were a little antiquated themselves. Dean Fisher was less harsh. uGood professionals come to Journalism School full of good ideas, but a man is inclined to teach the rest of his life the way they did things in 1971.2 Unfortunately, a few faculty members were still teaching the way they did things in 1951. A few professors teaching at The Missourian and KOMU had been there since before their pupils were born. And theytd missed things that had changed in the out- side world, things their students were aware of. Fishers solution to this problem was to make arrange- ments with his many friends in the professional world to let Missouri faculty members have summer internships at major papers and broadcasting stations. When students went away for the summer, so did the teachers. Most profs, of course, stayed behind to keep things running, but oc- casionally a student landed an internship on a major East- ern daily and found he was working alongside his News 105 teacher from Columbia. 2T0 keep the Journalism School up to date, keep it in good touch with the professionals, its up to the School to be plugged in very closely with the profes- 110 a ' Below: Fisher reets Alfred Eisenstaedt, Life photographer.

We want our staff going to papers in the summer, and we hope to work out a professional exchange program where a really top-notch journalist comes here to teach a year, and one of our professors goes to take his place on a metropolitan daily or station." An easier way to update the Schools curriculum and thinking is to bring in new people, as enrollment increases dictate new faculty members. Dean Fisher has spent a lot of money on improvements in the last two years, but he hasn't had all he needed. "The administration supports us pretty well, but they donit have any loose money over there. Wetve gotten quite a bit of remodeling money from them, but ex- cept for a couple of positions in broadcasting, we haventt gotten any additional faculty. But wetve combined faculty, and we're paying half salaries to some people, and getting the other half from some other source w a grant or some- thing. By transferring work around, were spending the same amount of budget money, but wetve been able to upgrade the quality of the program? Dean Fisher is happy about the new faculty members hets been able to attract, and confident hetll get better ones when some vacancies open. Right now though, the improvement he's happiest about is the new Cathode Ray Tube. The CRT is quite an improvement, considering that when Fisher came here the paper was still setting linotype in a manner not much different than the days of Walter Williams. But Walter Williams didntt have a CRT to play with, and he didnt have a total journalism budget, including the affiliated print and broadcast media of nearly three million dollars. Half of this operating revenue comes from The Mis- sourian and KOMU, $500,000 comes from grants and gifts, and only $1,000,000 is from state appropriations. The fifth Dean of the WFUoMSoJ oversees a staff of 57 full-time fac- ulty members and 49 part-time graduate assistants. In addition, Roy Fisherts position makes him a much sought-after speaker for the newspaper convention and broadcastersi association banquet circuit. He feels this is a most important function: using his position and influence to maintain good relations between the worlds oldest journal- ism school and the nations professional journalists. Fisher is frequently out of town at a meeting or convention, lohby- ing for the J-School. When he is in Columbia, he seems to be Students see an excitement about having a ringside seat in this civilization we live in. Theyire looking for ways to have part of the action.

And the faculty and students On the mundane campus are grumbling because they cant get in to see the Dean every time they want to. Fisher doesnt see his job as being there to listen to every Student every time something goes wrong. uThat's what Milton Gross is here for, to keep things running smoothly. MY position is not to be highly accessible though I don't think Iim that inaccessible, because I certainly dontt intend to be. Its just that there aren't enough hours in the day to always open up my office and let students come in and chat." There are other people to be sounding boards and ar- bitrators. Fisher has generally left the job-hunting to Bob Haver- field, Placement Director of the School of Journalism. Dean Fisher is aware, however, that ttone of the things thatts very important to us in this School is turning out people who can get jobs. We feel it's a reflection on us if we graduate a student who cant get a job. Why didnit we flunk him out, or convince him to go into something else?', This isnt so much a problem of job availability, something quite beyond the schools control, as one of making sure each graduate has the skills needed to get a job in the tight market of today. uWe should tailor our volume to the needs of the profes- sionals." After two years on the job, Dean Roy Fisher downplays his own contributions to the Journalism Schoolis dramatic turnabout. "A lot of the changes simply reflect changes that , were going on in the industry . . . but also, someone's coming in with a different perspective on it. Well, I came in with a different perspective, and I knew what industry was doing. I found that universities that ought to be the leaders of the new techniques and devices, were 20 years behind the industry. We were training students to go into what the industry had stopped doing years before." But these mechanical changes are "superficial things. The fundamentals are abiding . . . though some other journal- ism schools became enamoured with the greater freedom and lesser discipline of the new journalismf These schools were forgetting the basic need to communicate. The un- derground papers dontt need mass audiences to support them, so you can have a paper just for your friends. Now thatts a lot of fun, and you don": have to worry about your friends disagreeing with you, or challenging your credibil- ity, because they already agree with you before you start. But when youire producing a paper for strangers . . . who have an entirely different standard of values, of priorities, attitudes from yours . . . itts then that the professional feels the pinch. This is when he makes it or fails. If he can't com- municate to strangers, hostile strangers, and credibly . . . then he canit make it as a professional journalist. You donit need a journalism school to put out a paper for your friends. You do need one to put out a paper for your enemies." And after two years at the WFUoMSoI, Roy Mac Fisher cantt help wondering occasionally whether there might be an easier way to teach journalism than putting up with irate Missourian readers whose favorite comic strip has been dropped, scrounging up money for KBIA, and coping with KOMU viewers who are upset because Roller Derby isn't running any more. HBut there is something authentic about knowing a student will have a live, hard-nosed city editor toss his copy back with the flat observation that tthe lead's in the third paragraphf And as with every newspaperman, I get the feeling of satisfaction each time I sense a studentts excitement for a good story, or a new television special, or a radio segment picked up from us by the national network . or when I look at a balance sheet and find our little newspaper has turned the corner and is operating at a prof- it.

Hearnes Multipurpose Building finally made its world premiere with summer commencement August 4, 1972. The $10.5 million complex was delayed by construction strikes and in- sufficient funds nearly two full years from the first scheduled completion date. But when it opened, it instantly became a Showplace of the Big 8 Con- ference. That left Brewer Fieldhouse with only memories of the past: records in the Tiger record books, pictures in old Savitars and trophies in the polished halls of the new Warren E.

Yet these five men were the most out- standing performers in Missourik 1972 cross country season e one in which the Tigers improved from sixth to third in the Big 8 and from 2-2 to 3-1 in dual meets. When he placed 13th in the NCAA finals at Houston, Mc- Mullen became Mizzouts first all-American harrier since Glen Ogden in 1967 and our highest national finisher since Bob Hanneken in 1960. But evidently University students were not too ecstatic about the news. In fact, a post-season telephone poll revealed that nine out of ten campus dwellers had never even heard of McMuIlen. "If Missouri had the 13th best football player in the country," said first-year cross country coach Robin Lingle, ttyoutd never stop reading about him." Then why do athletic young men spend fall afternoons chasing each other and the clock through obscure golf courses, instead of reaping the glory of college football? According to Lingle, that oft-extolled thrill of competition keeps them cOming out and going on. uThese men CEIII't compete in football because theytre too small. TheytVe found the opportunity to compete in an area in which they have natural ability." . Lingle, a former Big 8 cross country champion at Missouri who hails from Long Island, was extremely pleased by the team's progress during his first season after taking over for retired Tom Botts. He noted that only Mark Visk was a senior on a squad that produced two of the top five freshmen in the confer- ence tBuddy Lawrence and Mark Kimballi and the best Big 8 sophomore lBrian Walshi. McMullents NCAA performance had to be the high point of the season, and it's all the more remarkable when one censiders that Charlie lost a shoe in the first halfmile 0f the Slx-mile Houston course and had to do about 75 percent of his running on one shoe. Walsh was another harrier who came through well, moving from tenth last year to fifth in what Lingle calls "a tough cross country conference." The Hannibal sophomore also placed 14th in the regionals at Wichita. Comeback of the year honors went to Visk, who rebounded from a disappointing 1971 season to finish in the conference top ten. Lingle rated Lawrence the rookie of the year: HHe helped US out a great deal in the beginning of the season, before get- Charlie McMullen, Mark Visk and Brian Walsh finish one-two-three against Iowa State on Missouri's five-mile cross country course. ting injured? Buddy bounced back in time to come in 34th at the regional meet. Kimball, Dave Rogles and Don Overton were the other chief contributors to the Missouri cause when they helped the Tigers open with dual-meet wins at Illinois and Nebraska and close with a trouncing of Iowa State on the home University Golf Course five-mile layout. Sandwiched in between was a squeaker loss to Kansas State at Manhattan. After placing third in the Big 8 meet at Columbia, Mizzou finished its team season with a fifth place finish in the NCAA regionals at Wichita State University. In 1973, McMullen will lead the team through his second season since transferring from Cobleskill tN.Y.i Junior College. Everyone else except Visk will also be back, making Missouri a solid contender for the conference crown. As usual, Columbians wontt hear much about the ,73 har- riers. But they,ll be out there running. 121 rugby The Missouri Rugby team had its problems this year. The spring seasOn was plagued with wet grounds and generally miserable weather. ttThere were just no good days all spring," said Tom Leicht, Rdgby Club president. ttIn fact, against IowdState, it was so wet that the field just. wouldn't hold any more water." Also there was little money. The Rugby Club gets its money for equip. ment and uniforms from dues and money-making projects. One party netted the team $80. "We asked MSA for $1,900 this last spring. well be lucky to get $500," Leicht said. But in spite of everything, it all worked out well anyway. The team record climbed to near the .700 mark as opposed to last yearts .500 season. The team came off with two second place tournament finishes in the St. Louis Easter Rugger Fest, and the tour- nament at the University of Missouri- Rolla. In the St. Louis Tournament, the team competed against powerful schools from the Mid-West and Canada. And now the club looks for- ward to bigger and better things for the 1973-74 season. 124 Soccer c.lub takes ling 8 , champmnshlp V 7,...- The 1972-73 soccer club had an abun- dance of talent and as tough a sched- ule as any coach could demand. Before the season, club president Dennis Oberg said, ttWe have one of the best club organizations around. I hope we can prove it in the Big 8 Tournament." With a powerful offensive attack and a defense that allowed only one goal, the soccer club stormed to the Big 8 championship in Lincoln, Nebraska. Playing three games in two days, the Tigers first blanked Colorado 3-0, beat Oklahoma State 2-1 and captured the championship game from Kansas State 2-0. The spring season ended with a record of 7-1 and combined with a fall mark of 5-0-3, the Tigers went 12-1-3 on the season. The years only loss was to Florissant Valley. Danny Shea was the teamts leading scorer. Alvero Bueno added to the of- fensive punch of the team. The home games were played on the less-than-adequate Our Lady of Lourdes fields. Regulation 120-yard fields are needed, but Lourdes, fields are only 90 yards. The club was forced to rely on dues for funding. MSA refused to consider the club,s budgetary requests. No money is received from Intercollegiate Athletics either. Oberg looks for bigger and better things next year. There were rumors that the Intercollegiate Athletic De- partment would absorb the soccer club, giving it a source of funds. Ninety per cent of the squad will re- turn next year to defend its newly- acquired conference crown. 125 ABC'S Chris Schenkel and Bud Wilkinson were in disbelief.

What great magic took the 3 Tigers from the weekly HBottom Ten" . i college football poll to the ttTop ZOn poll of the Associated Press? There is no simple answer. Every- one and everything played an impor- - tant role. In a word it took teamwork. e a 0n Heading the team for his second 11, year was Al Onofrio. Onofrio suffered through his first year of head coaching , :i with the 1-10 record and a cellar finish 0 e e a h in the Big 8 conference. Critics had ; j begun to say that Onofrio just couldnt make it as a Big 8 coach. But to dispell the disbelievers, Onofrio pulled off big upsets, took his team to the Fiesta Bowl, and picked up Big 8 Coach of the Year honors from both the As- sociated Press and the UPI. Onofrio managed to defy the experts who saw little in the Tigers before the season began. He held the team together, even after the humiliating 62- 0 drubbing by the defending national champion Cornhuskers. John Mosely, Tiger defensive back, put into a few words the spin't that made the Tigers work for Onofrio: uPeople wanna win for him -- no doubt about it? It was an up-down season for the Tigers with three upset wins over Notre Dame, Colorado and Iowa State. There were also the losses to Baylor, Nebraska and Kansas. The Cinderella story came to a close on a Saturday night in Tempe, Arizona, when the Tigers met the na- tion's number one scoring machine, the Sun Devils from Arizona State. Frank Kush had his team ready, and ASU went on to a 49-35 Victory. The road to the Fiesta Bowl was not an easy one. Much credit is due Onofrio, for turning the Tigers around and organizing a real team. The year of the running back Not unlike a stable of fine race horses Missourits backfield was helped thi; year by a wide variety of power, speed, quickness and lightningtfasl reflexes.

The Tigers had the fleet of runners to make this offense work. Probably the most famous name was Tommy Reamon, a two-time All. American at F t. Scott IKansast Junior College. Reamon did not start the season in the Tiger backfield. For a while Reamon understudied sophomore Bill Ziegler until Coach Onofrio decided both backs should start. Reamon did have problems ad- justing to Big 8 football and to the new g, AHm System. However, he finished the regu- lar season as the Tigers top rusher with 454 yards. By far, Reamon,s best single-game erformance was at South Bend in the 30.25 shocker of then unbeaten Notre Dame. In 16 carries, Reamon netted 73 ardS - but more importantly he threw key blocks, one of which sprang teammate Leroy Moss on a 16-yard touchdown run. Chuck Link made a name for him- self with three touchdowns against California in the Tigers 34-27 win. The 5-10, 190-pound slotback from Aurora carried the ball six times for 53 yards and 18 big points. California was also torn apart by Ray Bybee. The 200-pounder from East Moline, Illinois, carried 27 times for 185 yards. Bybee was well on his way toward breaking Harry Icets 1941 record of 218 yards, but the sopho- more had a sore right ankle that limited his second half play. There seemed to be a limitless supply of talent for Mizzouts new wishbone. There were no Johnny Rodgers or Greg Pruitts, but there was a combination that accounted for 2139 yards on the ground. And a Fiesta Bowlseason. V i I 1 g9s not all glory 1n k C a h r e t P a u Q a1, A44 To many people quarterbacking is the glamour job in football. It,s the quar- terback who does the brainwork; then he passes the ball to someone else who does the hard work and gets clobbered sooner or later. The wishbone changes all of this. It forces the quarterback to be a runner and a blocker so he too can get clob- bered. Missourits quarterbacks, John Cherry 021 and Tony Gillick UIJ, had their share of clobberings by such defensive teams as Notre Dame, Colorado, Oklahoma and Nebraska. But Cherry, a junior college transfer, proved himself as a clutch performer. Against the Irish, Cherry threw 4- for-7 and 106 yards, including several third and fourth-down gambles that paid off. In the 6-5 bowleclincher against Iowa State, Cherry'hit slotback Chuck Link on a pass that put the Tigers in the range of Greg Hillls magic toe. At the beginning of the season, Cherry was asked if he was sold on the wishbone offense. "You have to be . . . when I went to junior college, Oklahoma wasnlt doing much. Alabama was down.

The football experts predicted another poor season for Mizzou, but Doak countered ttthat only helps to make this kind of a team more deter- mined." They were determined. Doak pre- dicted a seven and four season and had hopes for a bowl bid. Defensive tackle Dan McDonough said after back to back Wins over Notre Dame and Colorado, "Itts kinda silly to be talking - about a bowl bid - but it is possible. At the first of the season I figured a bowl bid might never happen. But who knows'P, Determination spread throughout the team, including the defense. After allowing the Cornhuskers 62 points, the very same defensive unit held Iowa State to only five points in one entire game. . The ,72 Tigers had a defense that played a big part in the turnaround year at Mizzou. , g 1 uinllnlrWHr .: im . foensive llne: big men with big job One of the factors that makes the wishbone offense explosive in nature is the ability of the running backs to hit the holes in the defensive line with such speed that the defense is caught off guard. But the wishbone counts on the holes being there in the first place. Re- sponsibility for making an opening lies on the shoulders of the offensive linemen. The job is not an easy one. There are 265 and 280-p0und mammoths waiting on the other side of the line of scrimmage, waiting for the snap of the ball. Missouri had a talented front line which, tackle-to-tackle, played on the same freshman team and had been together for four years. From left to right it was Jim Schnietz, Mike Levick Hater Scott Andersonl, Scott Soder- gren, Chris Kirley and Kelley Curbow. Said Curbow, "Wetve all played together for four years now, and its become much easier to know what to expect from the other guys. When Kirley is the guard next to me, I can pretty much tell what he will do when we line up. We even have our own audibles for some blocking situations. "We should . be improved next year." Curbow called Missourits tough schedule a privilege. ttI wish we could play Nebraska again. I dontt exactly know why, ex- cept they arent 62 points better than we areft And Kelley Curbow and company will be out to prove just that in 1973. x Mfg ; A More than 49,500 people were on hand in a chilly, damp Memorial Sta- dium as Missouri met Iowa State. It was 3-3 at half, and Iowa State got the edge in the third quarter on a blocked punt turned into a safety. Score: 5 to 3, Iowa State. The Tigers moved into field goal range in the final quarter. Greg Hill kicked the winning field goal of 22 yards with 1:27 left. Greg Hillts toe set a new Missouri record by kicking 13 field goals in one season. It was Hill who led the season in scoring with 58 points. That same toe also produced win 11ng kicks against Oregon and Colorado, and Hill had three impor- tant field goals against Notre Dame. Hill is modest about his accomplish- ments, which include being the first kicker in some time to be named ttBig 8 Offensive Player of the Week? ttIf the offense cant get the ball down the field, then I can't do my job either.

Then hurriedly but methodically, she donned several pairs of pants and three or four sweaters, a thick brown ski jacket, a hat and a muffler. A couple of months earlier she couldn,t find clothing light and cool enough to wear. But now she definitely conformed to the "layered look" of fash- ion so typically characteristic of the year. She wasn,t going to a fashion show, though. Nor was she practicing for the age-pld party relay game of ttWhich team can put on and take off excess clothing the fastest?" She was my roommate, and consequently it was easy to see the effects of Marching Mizzou upon her. She was extremely organized e- she had to be because of the long, arduous hours of required prac- tice. And she was extremely careful about her health - she realized the ttshow must go on," and she wanted to be a part of it. She was off for another all-important Friday afternoon practice; this particular day, not unlike many of their prac- tice days, was quite chilly. Not a trace of blue could be seen through the low, dense gray clouds. As she blended into the crowd of instrumentalists, the mood created on the practice field by the 28 flutists, 52 clarinetists, 12 alto saxophonists, 12 tenor and 4 baritone saxophonists, 33 trumpets, 10 horns, 15 trombones, 9 baritones, Q tubas and 24 percussionists tnot to mention the 16 Golden Girls and Anna Marie Drahushl was quite the opposite of the cold, forlorn, bleakness of dusk. There was chaos, tension and excitement creating a kind of electricity in the air around them. Most of the members of Marching Mizzou, if not all, were in their high school bands and they ttjust enjoy" music. After talking to many of them, its quite startling to discover that their feelings about Marching Mizzou strangely coin- cide. The same electric current ran through all of them. ttI just do it for funft said Tom OtConnor, a psychology- majoring tuba player and a highly respected brother and bartender of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. Tom feels that the greatest part of the band is, "The whole thing runs on psych. The excitement is great e like when the shows not ready two hours before the game and wetre really working. Then we finally get on the field and have it come out right. It seems kind of funny to be able to turn people into machines like that." Barb Schultheis, a four-year clarinetist who has marched in every single game, commented, ltI think the band goes along with the team. Last year, the band was smaller and there wasnt as much enthusiasm. This year its a younger band, a lot more freshmen, and theytre really spirited." "I think its worthwhile and a lot of fun," smiled Joetta Prost, a clarinetist and the spirit chairman. ttln Marching Mizzou, everyone gives 200 percent effort at practice and at the games; there arentt too many organizations that demand or require that much from its members." Karen Studley, another clarinetist, said, "The thing I dislike about Marching Mizzou cant be changed: the weather! There,s nothing wrong with the band itself. This year the kids are always very friendly. I like being able to Despite the cold weather, the Golden Girls run throu h their routine one last time before appearing on the footbal field with Marching Mizzou. They maintain busy schedules in order to arrange time for their long hours of practice. On game days they practice with the band as early as 9:30 am. in order to finalize their routines and make any necessary alterations. ABOVE: These two girls bundle up warmly for their afternoon practice. "The show must go ont' is Marching Mizzou's motto eregardless of what the weather is like outside. have pride in a group, in performing well and in representing the University. We,re out there doing some- thing really worthwhile and itts great to be able to say Tm from Missourif I dont think thereis enough I can say. It's really just a lot of fun. ttAnna Marie Drahush has added a lot to help with spirit. Shets just a great gal. She and the Golden Girls are a real asset to the band. Sometimes rehearsals get hectic and time consuming. You really have no free time and you learn to utilize all your extra time when you do have it. I love it. Pm sorry Pm graduating. Everybody has such a good time." Also at practice that day in the middle of them all, stood a man in a camel brown coat, a brown hat with a little red feather and a pair of blue-plaid, slightly flaired pants. Al- though his dark mustache and equally dark framed glasses were the only facial features observable from a distance, one could easily discern the deep concentration and anx- iousness about him. And yet he exuded confidence. Suddenly, he emphatically yelled, ttYoutve got to move out by squads. I don,t care how you do it, but itis got to be done!" The voice belonged to Alexander Pickard, associate professor of music. This was the day to itpolishh everything before the next days televised Missouri vs. Iowa State game. On Monday 139 from 3:40 to 5:30, each member received a chart showing the general movements for formations; and then they went through the whole program. Tuesday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. they practiced the music in the band room and marked their music as to how and where they would march. That same night they found out the game and their half-time per- formance would be televised, and subsequently the whole show changed. tttYou just never know where those cameras are going to look," Pickard chuckled laterJ Little did they realize that before the week came to an end, they would put in a total of 14 hours of hard practice between Tuesday and Saturday. ttYou folks in the corner make sure you get all the sound coming this way," Pickard shouted. "Youtve got to have soundlto know where you are. Here we go! Roll tem!" The response was amazing; the predominantly blue- jeaned tam-and-scarved clad students practiced ttTherets No Business Like Show Business," ttRainy Days and Mondaysf ttSunny," ttHawaii Five-O," ttPopcornit and "On a Clear Day You Can see Forever" over and over again. Despite the ocpasional sniffling and coughs, there were no audible moans. uWatch those diagonals," shouted assistant directors Ron Dyer and George DeFoe from an observation tower. "You understand? OK!" Shortly there was a break in the practice. Mr. Pickard mo- tioned for the band .to gather around him. HSqueeze in here so I can talk to you. Tomorrow we will serve lunch out here for you. We will practice for 45 minutes . . . We will eat quickly; and if its raining, actually raining - Understand the difference? - we will practice at the Multi-Purpose Building? Practice then resumed as everyone took his position on the field and began to run through the whole show again. TtYou cantt wait for the guy behind you to bump you before you move," reminded Pickard. ttI know you have to move and play your instrument at the same time, but thatts too bad. If that's the kind of sound youtre going to put out on the air tomorrow, dont tell your parents to watchltt As far as Mr. Pickard is concerned, the students them- selves serve as their own disciplinarians. ttItts easy for me to chart the formations and everything," he explained, ubut once they hit the field, theytre on their own. They are a lot more critical of themselves than I am; they really get down on themselves. Besides, thereis a great deal of competition among the company fronts and squads.H From A, trumpets; Front B, trombones and horns; Front C, percussion; Front D, low brass; Front E, Clarinets; and "F Troop? tubas and bari- tones.j Furthermore, he feels ttThere is not a problem with desire or attitude. They are there because they want to be. You re- ally have got to be a little insane to be in Marching Mizzou. We have had people in the band as many as seven years! Its just not glamorous; and its definitely no picnic. But some- how they think its worthwhile? Mr. Pickard continued, ttWe believe we have the best band in the world; and every time they hit the field, they have to prove it. The crowd each year is getting more responsive. Itts at a real high point this year." Snow . . . Cold Feet . . . Rain . . . Wet grass . . . Heat . . . Exhaustion. . .Discipline. . .Time. . .Friendship Enthusiasm . . . Optimism . . .

All-American candidate John Brown was back for his senior year at center. Al Eberhard and Mike Jeffries were back from a devastating front line the year before. The Tigers had the 1971- 72 Big 8 and NCAA District Five Coach of the Year in Norm Stewart. The $10.5 million Warren E. Hearnes Multipurpose Building was ready for basketball. Everything went well, indeed, for Best the Tigers. A season mark of 21-6 tied the 1971-72 season as the best in Mis- souri basketball history. For the sec- ond year in a row, the Bengals went to the National Invitation Tournament in New York City. The season got off to a great start as Missouri rolled off 12 straight wins including championships in the V01- unteer Classic and the pre-season Big 8 Tourney in Kansas City. Their first loss was in Manhattan to the defending Big 8 champ Kansas State. Four of Missouri's other five losses were at the hands of Big 8 oppo- season ever, again nents. The Tigers finished third in the conference behind Kansas State and Colorado. A 9-5 conference mark and the 21-6 on the season was enough to net a berth in the NIT. But the Tigers bowed out of first round action in Madison Square Garden with a 78-71 loss to the Redmen from Massachusetts. Big things were expected of the Tigers, and they delivered: one non- conference loss in ten starts, Big 8 Tourney champions, Volunteer Classic champs and NIT play. In short, another great year for MU basketball. 145 Brown is beautiful John Brown's name will go down as a big one in the Missoun' record book. He's the 6-7 blond who surpassed Charlie Henkeis career scoring mark of 1,338 points. Brown's college career is enviable. His first college game was against none other than UCLA, and he scored 14 points. After his sophomore year he was selected to the US. Olympic Develop- ment Team; and after his junior year it was the US. Olympic team. A bone break in his left foot dun'ng practice kept him out of the 1972 Olympic games in Munich, Germany. Brown was one of 10 athletes in- ??i?" , III: . vited by President Nixon to attend the White House Conference on Drug Abuse. And many Tiger fans will remember Brown as the lanky forward-turned- center who helped put Missouri in the NIT two years in a row. The list of Brownie honors and ac- complishments goes on seemingly without end. "Thereis not much to do in a small town like Dixon tMissouriL and I in- variably ended'up playing basketball. I used to play in the backyard all day long until it got dark. ttThe lights from the Foodliner across the street lit up our backyard, so I could play until I went to bed sometimesfi Practice does make perfect, and John Brown is a living example. The pro scouts Were so impressed with Brownis junior year that he was offered a large bonus to forego his final college season. But Brown stayed for his senior year and was a leader who helped Missouri win the National InVitation Tour- nament berth as the bonus to a great season. Brown's record speaks for itself. John Brown will long be remembered as more than the all-time leading scorer of the Tigers. EFL". Once upon a time, someone, some- where was quoted as having said basketball is a non-contact sport. EWW year sportscasters and sports erters come up with sterling ex- amples of how physically punishing basketball really is. Ahyone who has watched the el- bow1ng, pushing and shoving that goes on under a basket in a Big 8 game knows that there is a great deal of con- tact. Ask Oklahoma's Alvan Adams, yvho had his freshman year cut short 1n Columbia when he was dumped 1 ix: hard on the gray Tartan court in the Hearnes Building. The Big 8 Conference has long had the reputation of being a tough, physi- cal conference. The image may have evolved from the corn-fed farm boys that went to Big 8 schools, but the physical punishment of conference basketball is demanding. Referees call the games differently in various sections of the country, but Big 8 basketball always has been known for its rough and punishing brand of play. 11011- contact Eberhard 1 and J effries: Experience pays off 150 1'1 l. Eh Two experts at the physical game of basketball are Missourils Mike Jeffries and Al Eberhard. One game is enough to tell even a newcomer that Jeffries and Eberhard do not shy away from contact. Jeffries, 6-3, 232 pounds, puts a little of his football background into his basketball. nFootball was my first love? the Alton, Ill., native said. "111 junior high, I started playing basketball, and my Older brother influenced me a lot. I was playing with guys four and five years older, but playground competi- tion is good." Ieffries continued with football and basketball in Alton. His senior year, Ieffries was named an all-American and all-state quarterback. He also was an all-state basketballer, averaging 25 points a game. He played football and basketball his freshman year at Mizzou but was forced to make a decision between the two and finally chose basketball his sophomore year. Coach Stewart calls Jeffries tithe best athlete on the team for a combina- tion of strength, quickness and passing ability." And it all shows, whether the muscular Jeffries is popping 20-foot jump shots or battling under the boards. The 6-5, 220-pound Al Eberhard Hlikes rebounding best. Most big men like to get in and mix it up. It gets pretty rough sometimes, and therets a lot of pushing and shoving." The Big 8 Sophomore 0f the Year in 1972, Eberhard can best be remem- bered by fans as the gum-chewing blond who went crashing to the floor in pursuit of a loose ball during a game. Coach Stewart says, tleverything Al does is overshadowed by his aggres- siveness. He plays low mistake games, and the thing I most appreciate about him is his maturity." After five operations on elbows, ankles and knees, Eberhard says he feels no pain, and still plays rough under the boards. He set the Tiger record for most rebounds for a sopho- more, and finished behind John Brown with nearly 10 rebounds a game this year. Under the boards, where the action is thick, Missouri had two tough com- petitors in Mike Jeffries and Al Eberhard. 151 , ,an' - VJhc d H C k C e w l 1 3 Am 0 0 PI 1t 133 people lace. 0111 OH IS p ita N30 h. V 9 overto CH6 hasSO Hosp There's one man who's just as im- portant to the athletic program at Missouri as any player or coach. He is Olen ttOleyyy V. Thornton, and hes been an integral part of Missouri ath- letics since 1947, with a tenure longer than that of most coaches. Oley is the maintenance foreman for the Intercollegiate Athletics Office. Specifically, he's in charge of the sta dium, the baseball grounds and the track facilities. Mowing and watering the grounds, painting the lines on the football field, replacing weak boards in bleachers a these are just some of the tasks that come under Oley's juris- diction. The jobs hours are not always 9-5. ttFor an early track meet we some- times have to get here at six in the morning. During football games you miss lunch. And baseball games can go all the way itil dark." But in spite of its many demands, the job is natural for Oley. ttMy first love has always been foot- ball and sports. I never got a chance to play back in high school. My dad was a pretty sick guy, and my brothers and I all had to go out and work. When I was 16, my brother and I Came to the stadium to help the man who was building it. I was strong but the contractor said I was too small to work? Oley is still strong. There are few 63-year-olds who can put in a full days physical work and still have time for "fun" with the athletes. "Pm still in pretty good shape, and I can still wrestle with any of the foot- ball players. I even threw one to the ground a couple of years ago. He was mouthint off about this and that, and I sorta told him to keep quiet. I put him on the ground in front of the whole team, and he kept quiet after that." But some things have changed since 1947 when Thornton started fulltime. "In 1947, the stadium had two long ditches on each side. We used to put up bridges to let people get into the stadium. It only held about 23,000 then, and the average crowd was about 12 or 13,000. If we got 18,000, we thought we were in the big time. "Back then the press box was a wood sheet barn, down on the field at the 38-yard line. After every game we had to push the hinged front panels back into place with long poles, and then hook them. "We had wooden concession stands Oley is one of the Tigers biggest fans, lending his vocal support to all sporting events. 153 l. . 43M...r.ly1WWW fl, xbuzuthMr; ! .t 4 , Wik- ,. At 63 Oleyts in pretty good shape. tI can still wrestle With any of the footb all players. I threw one to the ground a couple of years agof when I first got here, and the scoreboard was a lot different." Oley is also in charge of the indoor track facilities at the Hearnes building. Hearnes is a far cry from Brewer Fieldhouse, which was vacated by In- tercollegiate Athletics in August 1972. uYou know the worst thing about Brewer was you couldntt keep it hot enough or cold enough or clean enough for anybody. That's what I hated most about the place? For all the hard work, there are benefits too. Oley has gone with the football Tigers on many of their road games and to most ofthe bowl games. ttI-ive been most everywhere in the country, the Colisseum in Los Angeles and down to Vanderbilt. Iive seen two Orange Bowls, the Blue-bonnet Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, the Gator Bowl and the Cotton Bowl. ttThe best game I ever saw was when Missouri beat Navy in the Orange Bowl. Norm Beal picked off a pass for the Tigers, and that won the game. I remember I was watching President Kennedy through my field glasses, and I saw him grab his head. He just couldnit believe it. ttOne of the great things about this job is the people you meet and Itve met a lot of people in my 26 years on the job. Yve talked to Billy Graham; Neil Armstrong, the astronaut; Red Grange; Chris Schenkel; Lindsey Nelson; Mel Allen and lots of sports stars and even some movie stars." And there are people who become his good friends and life-long ac- quaintances. ttIust last year when I was at Pikes Peak, I sat down at the counter of this restaurant to order a cup of coffee. The kid serving me behind the counter turned around and said, Remember me, Oley? It turned out he was Mis- souriis high jumper last year. ttThe athletic department has always been very good to mefl says Oley, ttand I try my darndest to help them as much as I can. ttIn ,47 I came back here and I told Spuling, then athletic director, Yd take on the job for a year. Then if he didn't like my work, or I didnt like the job, weld call it quits. That was 26 years ago, and Im still here today? Oley has two more years to go before retiring at 65. "Ill stay here two more years, unless they tthe athletic departmentl donlt think Ilm doing my job." It would be difficult to find anyone who knows the job better than Oley Thornton. ale 155 In basketball, itts UCLA and the rest of the Pacific 8 Conference. In football there was Oklahoma and the Seven Dwarves. Collegiate wrestling has its powerhouses too: Iowa State, Okla. home and Oklahoma State. . The 1972-73 Tiger wrestling Squad lost to Iowa State 42-0, and to Oklahoma 28-3. The Oklahoma State match was cancelled because of bad weather and travel conditions. But Missouri wrestling coach Hap Whitney found his 6-3 season one of the most exciting ever. ttThe competition our squad met is the toughest in the country. We've been lucky in getting our rough sched- ule against Iowa State and the other top schools. It just makes you work all that much harder." The team did work hard. Senior Captain Curt Bourg set a new Missouri record for career wins with 20 this year. The Tigers made the move into the new Hearnes Multipurpose Build- ing and drew the biggest crowds ever to see Missouri wrestling and the BigB wrestling championships. For the first time, the Big 8 wres- tling tournament was held in the Hearnes Center. The three round-affair was completed one Saturday in Febru- ary. Iowa State,s defending NCAA champ Chris Taylor met Missouri's heavyweight Tom Cook three times, and won three times. Three of Cookts five season losses came at thethands 0f the monster from ISU.

Coach Joe Goldfarb predicted a great year, and he was right. "Each year Iive seen this Missouri team improve - in swimming times, in attitude, in everything. And this year proves it." The Tigers finished second in the Big 8 to perennial champion Kansas. Nine swimmers competed in five NCAA Swimming and Diving Cham- pionship events in Knoxville, Tenn- essee. Co-captains Denny Bush and Roy . Schlacter swam in individual events at the nationals while the Tigers' 400 yard freestyle and 800 yard freestyle: relay teams met the top competition from around the country. ' Missouriis improvement each year does not come easily. Goldfarb said, t'We have one of the toughest training programs of any team in the nation. The guys know it, and they swim all out, some of them knowing they have ' little chance of making road trips with the team. But they stick it out. ttOur whole training schedule is aimed at one thing: the Big 8 Cham- pionships. And it has paid off. The first year I was here, we were happy not to finish last place in the confer- ence. Each year weive gotten visibly better." i Records fall, conference ranks improve, NCAA involvement is on the upswing. As the team improves, so does the kind of swimmer who can be recruited. Schlacter is one of Goldfarbis suc- cess stories. The senior wanted to give the Tigers a going-away present. He did with 48 points in the Big 8 Cham- pionships, more points than the entire Nebraska team could muster. ttI didn't swim much until my se- nior year in high school, and none of the schools in Illinois wanted me," the Glen Ellyn Ullinoisl native said. "I came down to Missouri just for the heck of it over my spring break and met Coach Goldfarb then. ttHe gave me a personal tour and asked me to come down and swim for Mizzou." Goldfarb is quick to welcome any- one to the team. In fact, his team is a great help in recruiting. They give Goldfarb ideas of how swimmers would fit into the program. ttI may meet a swimmer and tell the' team about his great times. They might tell me that they dont think he will fit in. On the other hand, they could tell me about a rather mediocre swimmer. tHeid be a great asset; hes a real hustlerf They are my best recruiters." Coach Goldfarb sees nothing but im- provement in the near Missouri future. His goals are first place in the Big 8 and more entrants in the NCAA cham- pionships. "Weive come a long way from my first year here in Columbia and we can always go farther." The Game: Within 1 A Game; The wgqing, recrultlpg, awakemng, and educatllgg of a blue-chlp . student athlete. By Craig Lowder Lowder played football on scholarship for Missouri. The prolific letters, the endless phone calls, the countless invitations and the bulk of information to digest and categorize is beyond your young C0mprehension. But propaganda or not, its still a good feeling to be wanted. Coaches and recruiters from the various colleges and universities have been wooing you since your last game because youtre good. And thatis a good feel- 'n too. 1 gYou're an athlete in high school. And if you,re like most high school jocks Who won any conference awards, ran, hit, swam, shot or wrestled better than most. you want to be a college jock too. So youll be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, accountant or coach later. Right now you're a young, strong individual bringing top bid in the jock market. And no doubt youire getting confused. some college coach and his staff from anywhere U.S.A. persuade you to visit their campus and they show you the new facilities, buy you dinner, get you free game tickets and a date with a players girlfriends friend. Its a nice time: a neat locker room with carpet, an aggressive coach, a good steak and some kind of date! But the weather is nasty most of the season and they lost to some mediocre teams last year. V HI'm good, or else they wouldn,t be so interested in me. And I want to play with the best," is the feeling that the average highly recruited athlete gets. So pick a campus, any campus. You,ll like the buildings and stadium, but . not all the freshman scholastic requirements. You,ll like the coach and players, but not the weather. And you'll probably consider the kind of educa- tion you want, despite last years won-lost record. And if youtre interested in a major university that's interested in you, perhaps scholarship money will play a persuasive role. Unless you happen to be in the market for-the ttrnoney sports," football and basketball, or you,re being recruited by a school that has a strong winning tradition in your particular sport tand consequently a generous financial backingl, money may be a distinct consideration in your final analysis. Decisions, whew! A college education and perhaps, if youlre ambitious enough, a professional career are in the'balance. So you decide; youtre signed in the midst of some fanfare; and youire committed. You were given an inkling of how big college is from the top of the press box, but it's bigger now than it looked then. It seems like there are a lot of non-athletic things to do. Itts difficult to get physically and mentally prepared The initial awakening of a highly recruited athlete is often rude. x when there are books to be bought, schedules to fill and meetings to attend. Classes are hard to find because you,ve never heard of Neff Hall, Middlebush Auditorium or GCB. Confused again, but now you have a whole athletic department to help you. And those fraternity boys that keep hounding you seem like they want to help you too, because you,re ttsomeonet, on campus. But you cant even remember their names. The first day of classes wasnit bad: there are some neat girls in that big gov- eITlment class, one of those boys from the Sigma something house introduced YOU to his pin pal tor was it mate?l, you saw a couple of the other frosh jocks, and youive never seen so many beards.

Pve got to get some sleep for tomorrowis practice." ? The initial awakening of a highly recruited athlete is often rude. The athlete is told that participation on an intercollegiate team is a distinct privi- lege and that he, as a student-athlete, must always be cognizant that he is representing a great institution of higher learning steeped in tradition. He is made aware that his actions, conduct and appearance must reflect favorably on his University, his team and himself. And since participation in athletics is strictly voluntary, the student-athlete is free to withdraw from the sports arena at any time he feels the rules governing the conduct of intercollegiate sports are in conflict with his personal interests, views or principles. There are sincere attempts to smooth the transition from glorified high school jock to low man on the athletic totem pole in college. Of course, there are a few ttfull-ride" scholarships a all inclusive and very appealing -for the blue-chip athletes. But all sports dontt share equal scholarship funds. y And even the ttfull-ride" jock has his pressures at the University. Despite? the traditional characterization of jocks as privileged animals in the campus: zoo, they too have to go to college. Because no matter what else happens, the athlete has to be in school before he can be eligible to play. And thats the sole purpose of athletic aid - "Give him an appealing opportunity to playfor! us.H ; And play they will. They,ll play every afternoon for four hours or more Theyill play for three or four months during the season. Because thatts whatil takes to be a champion athlete who has professional ambitions. From the moment an athlete is issued his equipment, be it shoulder pads or track shoes, golf clubs or spikes, an athlete,s dedication to his sport becomes n'gorous ritual. Training involves more than mere physical exertion where in- dividuals are pushing, constantly pushing to reach new heights, score more points and win more games. Individuals become cogs in the team machinery. a Itis individual dedication and team effort that are important to the succeSS i of any athletic program. A good athlete must be primarily a man of dedica- tion. And sometimes that dedication is so intense that mere intrusions, SllCb as attending afternoon classes, can upset the delicate balance between menf and physical preparation for his specific sport. .

Events that others may only glimpse in the headlines of the media, and converse over coffee, become very real efforts to the student-athlete. Very simply, the jock deals with life as a game. Racism and prejudice, ill- managed coordination, dehumanization, instant glory, self-sacrifice and pain .. concepts and realities that any member of a team must face and master to win his particular game. Coaches in any sport, even the Itgo-it-alone" sports of wrestling, swimming, track, golf and singles tennis, must carefully direct individual improvement in equal measure with such mysteries as team morale, unity and consciousness. So it becomes evident that the student-athlete, after four or more years of participation, is to a degree better informed and more aware than most of his fellow collegians of what lifets game is all about. But this doesnlt contradict the belief that because the jock is so wrapped up in his training and sport, he is limited to experiences taking place outside the gym. There can be no doubt that the athlete must sacrifice in some area of college lifeys diversity. But by living near the limits of mental and physical exertion in the environment of individual and team competition, his sacrifices are subtly rewarded. And after four or more years of participation, ifs that time again: more letters and phone calls, more trips and coaches to meet. If you fared well in your college years, once more you are thrust into the open bidding, only this time itts on the professional market. For some it may be a childhood dream come true. For others it may be a means to an end. For still others it may be the only path open for financial gain in our economically oriented society. Because after all, our society rewards the professional athlete with generous Despite the traditional characterization of jocks as privileged animals 111 the campus zoo, they too have to go to college. recognition along with often celebrated salaries. Yet, still others who have experienced the life of a student-athlete, will go on to be the doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants and coaches that they always wanted to be. But the game will continue. The game within a game Continues for all those that sacrificed their time and sweat during their 0011988 years. The memories will linger of the jock hall, the homerun, the in- terception or the time your team upset the conference champs. Even before you as an athlete leave campus, nostalgia sets in. And you Can't help but remember the confusion of recruiting, the agony of practice the COHStant PSYChing and physical scars. Because ttI played with and against Some of the best while I was here. I knew I couldh And you cant help but thlnk that the game within a game is worth it all. 163 all it an unusual year. Charlie McMullen became a cross country all-American and he did it at Houston, Texas, running five-sixths of the course minus his right shoe. With both shoes on, he recorded national indoor qualifying times in the mile and 100-yard run in Missourits first two indoor meets in the Hearnes Multi-purpose Building. V The Tigers finished third in the Big 8 indoor meet despite only one first place finish. Larry Gray won the triple jump. They did it with squeeze tactics e placing in all but five events. At the outdoor meet in May, the Tigers won four individual events, but only placed sixth. There were four blue medalists. Larry Gray, triple jump, won his third straight Big 8 title tindoors and out- doorsl. Gene Hansbrough won the high jump. Freshman Ben Plucknett, discus, placed in all the relays and set a school record. Charlie McMullen won the mile, of course. About a month earlier, Gray suf- fered facial and abdominal burns in a residence hall fire. In March, Gray himself set a fire in Detroit, Michigan where he became an all-American triple jumper. Hansbrough cleared 6-10 outdoors, just an inch higher than his jump in KC. which tied for second. Call it an unusual year. The four- mile relay team broke its 1972 timing, set a school record and set a Big 8 mark with a 16:22.8 time at the Texas Relays. Then it did nothing at the Kansas and Drake Relays. But conforming to the season's 166 unpredictability, the distance medley, anchored by McMullen tflanked by Bill Daily, Mike Melichar and Dave Roglest won two first-place trophies from Kansas and Drake. John Russell secured the javelin event when he flung the spear 233-7 in the triangular meet against North-East Missouri State and the Chicago Track Club. That surpassed the mark he set ht the Arkansas Relays in 1972 by 13- 7. The 1972 record broke by 10 feet the 34-year mark held by Bob Waldren. The day of the triangular meet also marked the first time retired track coach Tom Botts missed a Tiger track meet in 32 years. Instead, he attended a ceremony naming him a trustee of Westminster College and its most out- standing alumnus. The atmosphere of a track meet is unlike anything else in the world of college sports. It,s peaceful. Members of competing teams walk and talk quietly in the infield. On the side- lines the rest of the team quietly encourages the runners. Others prepare for their own events by loosening up, jogging or changing shoes. On the track the competition is as fierce as any sport, yet in the infield everyone seems friendly and easygoing.

' Baseball was on the low end of Tiger sports in 1973. Unlike their football and basketball counterparts, the Mis- souri nine struggled through a dismal, losing season. The baseball Tigers simply could not put it all together. When the hit- ting was good, all too often the pitching was inadequate. On the few occasions the pitching held, the bat- ting was likely to stop. As a result, the Tigers won only 13 of 34 games. Excessive early-season rain did much to damage the Tigers, chances. As Coach John "Hi" Simmons points out, ttYou simply cannot practice base- ball adequately indoors? referring to the Multi-Purpose Building to which the team was forced to retreat. Because of much bad weather the Tigers lost valuable practice time which pre- Vented Missouri from getting into the groove that adequate practice gives. The loss of top hitter Jack Bastable to the pro leagues also hurt the team. Missouri did have some bright t moments, however. Steve Pasternak pitched his finest game in defeating ninth-ranked Southern Illinois Univer- sity-Carbondale, nearly throwing a 110- hitter in the process. despite wet weather and getting hit on the hand with a pitch in the same game. Pasternak lost his no-hitter in He did this . the last inning when he gave up What i he called ttone of the cheapest hits 0f all timeF The hit was a slow roller down the third-base line that hit the bag and went fair. It was this sort of luck that plagued the Tigers during the season. Fortunately, they held on to win that one. Unfortunately, however, that was not usually the case. Defeating seventh-ranked Oklahoma State two out of three was the top achievement for the Tiger baseball squad. In this late-season triumph, Missouri showed the potential for having a contending baseball club. In this sense the Tigers showed the bal- anced hitting, pitching and defense they had strived for all season. They achieved it too late to salvage the year. After knocking the Cowboys out of the Big 8 race, Missouri went on to take two from Nebraska at the seasons end. Left fielder Charles ttRed" Young was the Tigers top hitter with a fine .327 average, also providing most of the power with five home runs. He tied catcher Terry Cole for the runs- batted-in lead with 15. Cole hit .260. Other top hitters included Dave Rothemel with .295 and center fielder Tom Ellis at .275. The rest of the averages ranged from poor to inept: As for pitching, the Tigers had no strong, effective stopper. Ben Tensing had the best won-lost record with a 4- 5 mark, followed by Barry Koeneke with a 4-6 tally. Beyond these two, the pitching was not the type that wins often. Perhaps the saddest part of the sea- son, discounting the record and calibre of play, was the retirement of veteran coach John ttHi" Simmons. Coach Simmons, 3 member of the college baseball Hall of Fame, called it quits after 34 years of service. Through the years his teams finished high in the national rankings frequently, winning the NCAA national championship in 1954. There have been 11 Big 8 champ- ionships in Simmonst career. At the age of 67, John ttHiti decided to step down after a long and most successful tenure. Unfortunately, he did not go out with a winning team in his final season. Even so, John ttHill Simmons still stepped out a winner. 0118 areer l'l wins at Missou ends his c with 481 m m .l S n .l 1.1. r. '4' Murray Strong released as tennls coach It was Tuesday, May 1. The Maneater had front page headlines that caught everyone by surprise. ttTennis coach loses job: Murray Strong dismissed after 6-year career.n It came as a complete shock to many. For others it seemed to be a logical development. Strong had been coach of the Mis- souri tennis team since 1968, and also had occupied the office of instructor in Health and Physical Education. There was talk that coaching took away from his teaching duties and vice versa. But few realized the conflict would end exactly as it did. Dr. Mel R. Sheehan, director of ath- letics, released a statement late Monday afternoon. "Coach Murray Strong and I have discussed his coaching obligations with the University of Missouri tennis team this season, and the problems in- herent in this part-time, but de- manding, job. '4 "We both recognize that he has found it most difficult this year to devote the time and attention neces- sary to successfully meet these obliga- tions. We are in mutual agreement that it would be advisable to seek a re- placement who can meet these obliga- tions without the numerous conflicts and other responsibilities which Coach Strong has experienced this year." The statement tactfully confirmed the streamer headline in the Maneater. Strong had been relieved of duties. Strong, a retired Air Force major, reportedly i had conflict with his players on disciplinary matters. Strong insisted on early curfews on nights before matches. Tom Fluri, the Tigers, number one player said, nQuite possibly his ! lStronngl troubles stem from his mili- tary background which he attempted l to Stress upon us." At the time of Strongis dismissal, the Tiger tennis team had a dual match with Colorado left, followed by the Big 8 championships. Once these Were over, it was the end of the season and a Missouri career for Murray Strong. to Scotland Golf team goes 176 T? 'u .95: s' m W i l t t l DITOR,S NOTE: The Missouri golf team traveled to St. Andrews Scotland in April, to compete in an in- tercollegiate tournament at the birth- place of golf. The following are the ob- servations of Coach Al Chandler. ,f Ioften sat at the hotel window which opened on a view of the North Sea and the royal and ancient clubhouse of St. Andrews. The view to the northeast, just left of the clubhouse, revealed the city of St. Andrews, a beautiful sight to visitors for over seven hundred years. Number seventeen, perhaps the single most famous golf hole in the world, was just below our window. From a second story vantage point the hole looks routine enough, but the subtle hazards of its 430 yards are sit- uated left, right and behind with the volumes of golf history having been recorded in that short space. It hadntt rained much in the month before we arrived and the courses were rock hard. The greens were im- possible. We could have left the wedges at home in favor of the one iron. The sand wedge is adequate for both heather and bunker, so long as you are not particular T about the number of strokes you count in finding your way back to the fairway. The famous Scottish ttfacedn bunkers are simple enough if you donlt object to playing out backward to the tee, but the heather is another matter. Often you will locate the ball several inches off the ground in tough bushes and the penalty drop wont make things much easier. A good tee shot into the wind, using the smaller ball, doesntt cover much more than 200 yards. With a following wind its likely to fly anywhere and even a long putt taided by the breezes we had during the weekl is difficult to hold on the green. Evening is probably the best time to tackle St. Andrews. Winds are down and you have at least a chance to con- trol the ball. Mind you, the course never gets easy; with perhaps eighteen hours of golf available each day, you 39! Some idea of why the Scots seem a calm and patient people. Its their defense against the humbling experi- ence of a day on the "links". On our second day we tried Car- noustie, a course 17 miles across the Firth of Tay. At iirst impression it didnt seem so overwhelming. Our only warning came when someone suggested we take a fore-caddie in order not to get lost somewhere on the inward nine. The countryside is peaceful and lovely, the lushest farmland Pve seen. Among the sheep, heather and gently rolling meadows, flagsticks appear. A short walk from the Carnoustie clubhouse, we visited the Pro Shop of Allistair Simpson tgolf-clubs do not have Pro Shops and Professionals as we know themL Simpsonls uncle was Open Champion in 1886 and a grand- nephew operates the Pro Shop today, fifty yards from the first sight. On our second day at Carnoustie, the winds were climbing to five clubs in strength and Yd played the fifteenth in what seemed like a blizzard. Frozen to the bone, I headed for the clubhouse. Clubhouse pubs are warm and friendly and in replaying the round over. a pint, the total was somewhere near 79. Given perfect conditions, no wind, two hours of determined prac- tice and a competent teaching profes- sional, it could have been 75. Three days later, the tournament record told the full story. Sixteen American and three Scottish teams would play two rounds here with a low score of 79 registered and an average scoring range of between 89 and 91. One player recorded an out- ward nine of 66 and a closing nine of 60. Nobody laughed. The flatness of the Scottish courses is utterly deceptive. Disaster lurks ev- erywhere. Straight holes become doglegs because of bunkers in the fairway. Many bunkers at St. Andrews cannot be seen from the tee. Yet those same bunkers include a ttface" that can extend above a players height. A bunker ttfacett rises vertically at a 90- degree angle. A ball resting under the face usually cannot be moved forward. Often as not, it can't be hit backward toward the tee either, and playing out laterally is a challenge. Given all the famous terrors of St. Andrews, it was CarnOustie that earned our greatest respect. There, weather reports listed wind gusts of 70 mph and more. Players were blown off balance during the swing. On Thursday, Tim Mehl, Tiger golf captain, shot a 95 as a follow-up to a 77 the day before. Through the season, Timis average, home and away, will show about 73. Seven other Missouri golfers didn,t fair any better. Six times Ilve tried the US. Open and PGA Championship. The Champi- ons Club, Olympic, Pinehurst No. 2 and PGA tEastl have all gotten the better of me in one way or another. The Scottish courses we played during the first week of April, under those playing conditions, would rank six to eight strokes harder than any other courses Itve challenged. 177 11 12 14 16 17 18 21 22 24 25 26 28 30 31 32 34 36 38 40 41 43 45 46 48 49 51 52 56 57 outballf Jimmy Smith, HB Gary Anderson, DB Brad Brown, DB Tony Gillick, QB John Cherry, QB Ray Smith, QB Bob Pankey, DB Jim Goble, QB Jim Sharp, SE Tommy Reamon, HB John Bastable, SE Greg Hill, K Ricky Cook, DB Bill Ziegler, HB Leroy Moss, HB Tom Mulkey, FB Ray Bybee, FB Don Johnson, FB Tom Kellett, LB Roger Yanko, LB Scott Pickens, LB John Moseley, DB Mike Fink, DB Randy Grossart, DB Bruce Berry, TB Steve Yount, DB Chuck Link, HB George Matyas, HB Mike Swinger, C Kurt Weinsenfels, C Scott Sodergren, C Rich Henry, DT 58 59 60 61 62 65 66 67 68 69 71 72 73 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 92 93 95 Lynn Evans, LB Dennis Jaskowiak, 0G Phillip Poppa, OG Larry Frost, DT Bob Orsi, LB Mike Levick, 0G 1 Dan McDonough, DT Herris Butler, DT Steve Sadich, 0G Zachary Cartwright, OG Robert Carr, OT Kelley Curbow, OT Jim Parrott, DT Frank Caldwell, DT Dennis Vanarsdall, DT Jim Schnietz, OT Scott Anderson, OG Chris Kirley, 0G Don Muse, TE John Kelsey, TE David Demien, OG Bob McRoberts, DE Dave Johnston, DE Ray Miller, DE Steve Schreiber, DE Charles McMurry, TE Henry Marshall, SE LL.

North Carolina State, one of the best basketbas teams in the nation, was forced to sit out post- -season play due to violation that occurred the previous year. . . Violations and complaints around the country were numerous as the money situation in universities and colleges became particularly tight. The Intercollegiate Athletic Department at Missouri receives no money from the University or from the state legislature. Monies come from 1111;: major sources: conference funds, gate receipts and contributions. The Biga Conference pays individual schools with money received from television 3p pearances and bowl game "."pots As is obvious,1nost gate receipts are going to come from football and; basketball, the two "major sports." This means the minor sports ttennis, golf; cross country, track, eth are going to receive less consideration when 11 ' comes to spending money. The unspoken philosophy is to spend the mona- where it will bring back the most money per dollar. ' The Columbia Missourian and the Columbia Daily Tribune both closelv V senous problem to the minor spom in i checked the roles of funding, scholar: ,l ships and minor sports at Missouri. A the athletic department is inadeciuate funds for scholarghip Sprograms, according to a Missourian article. "A lack of schol- ; Sarships prevents them tthe coachesl from competing for the blue chip athletes. They must divide the scholarships avail able to offer a maximum number of grants. " Coach John ttHi" Simmons 1: forced to split his scholarships this same way. He explains that sometimesa partial scholarship isnlt good enough ttAnother conference team took four promising baseball candidates from our state to whom we could offer only . partial scholarships. nOther schools waive out-of-state fees for an athlete, Missouri does 110th costs us more that way," Simmons says. While sports are basically competition and games, so is the process of 5 building a team and facilities. 1 The group responsible for establishing the game rules for member schools 1 to follow" 15 the NCAA, the National Collegiate Athletic Association One of the new rules under consideration by the NCAA is a limit on the total number of scholarships a school can offer. A cut of 55 scholarships dropping the total to 219, is recommended. 1 Football scholarships would drop from 129 to 105; track would be cut fmm 36 to 23 ufull rides. " Athletic Director Mel Sheehan is not totally opposed to restrictions on new l scholarships, but he feels limitations on total grants-in-aid are unfair. 111 do'esnlt take a genius to figure that football, if it awards the 30 new scholar 3 ships each year allowed in the changes, will exceed the 105-player lilllil within four seasons. The proposed rulings would eliminate four-year scholarships and allow?1 player to compete within a five-year period. "The limit on total grants is supposed to work against redshirting: Sheehan says, "but then they encourage redshirting by giving them live Yeas to compete." The minor intercollegiate sports are least affected by limitations on schol- ' arships. '23 c w l l ;' ' tics For example, Missouri swimming coach Joe Goldfarb can only award nine i for full scholarships with his budgeted $18,600. NCAA rules presently allow 18 , 0f full scholarships for swimming. To stretch his scholarship dollar, Goldfarb t i l l f0r awards only one full complement and spreads the rest around. Some i 3 f I tall swimmers receive as little as $100 a year. Goldfarb says, however, that the 1 l ' Dns nine scholarships still represent a tripling of his funds. l ttIf were going to be a national swimming power, were going to have to the have more scholarships? Goldfarb says. i l i The other coaches gripe about scholarships and money, too. And under- l; l ney l standably so. o l: ,ree HWhen we recruited Scott Bess four years ago? golf coach Al Chandler l g 8 t says, Hwe gave him a $400 scholarship.

With the money we save, we can lar- 1 pick up another in-state athlete." . A l The minor sports within the athletic department have some money : in problems, but not as complex as those sports who are outside the department. :hip 1 Rugby, soccer and gymnastics receive no money from Intercollegiate Athlet- 101- ics.

Growing Intramural program takes over Brewer The ments intramural program at MU continued its growth with another year of high participation. Over the past 10 years, the numbBr of men, teams and matches played under the auspices of Harry Smith's! intramural office in Rothwell Gym has increased better than twofold. In 1962-63, there were 834 teams and 6,721 men who took part in the ; various intramural activities. The 1972-73 SChOOl year saw 1,714 teams and 13,078 men participate. With the departure of the athletic department to its new quarters in the Hearnes Multi-purpose Building, the lulltime use of Brewer Fieldhouse has doubled the indoor space for intramu- rals. Games are played more than 20 hours per week, excluding physical education classes. Of the fraternities on campus, 84 per cent participated in intramurals; 68 per cent of the residence halls also took part in the 20 activities offered throughout the year. Plans for the future of intramurals look good. In the annual report by In- tramural Supervisor Harry Smith, the remodeling of Brewer Fieldhouse will be a large asset to the program. ttThe scheduled remodeling of Brewer Fieldhouse, financed by the student allocation of $284,000 and $7,000 of University funds, will provide 10 indoor handball courts, four basketball courts and a 10.5 lapse per-mile running track on a synthetic all-purpose surface. Hopefully these improvements and the additional funds from the Dean of Student Af- fairs will help the MU intramural pro- gram? any... .121 f sport University Campus Fraternity Residence 1f Champions League League Halls League Go Softball Jim Haupt Beta Theta Pi Drake TouCh FOOtbaH SPBBd Kappa Alpha Williams Tennis Singles SPBBd ATO Hawes Handball Singles Pat Kelly Phi Delt Patterson Racketball Singles Pat Kelly Phi Delt Fletcher Bowling 1PinfalD Jerry Hilecher Sigma Pi Bates Volleyball Bob Brown Delta Upsilon Drake Table Tennis Singles RPA Phi Kap Brown Pocket Billiards Paul Young ATO Patterson Basketball Richard Roller Kappa Alpha Buckner Table Tennis Doubles .

And of course, eyew- body knows why. Ideally, a home is the embodiment of all good things: happiness, love and pride. But what ahoma house away from home? What does it offer the young awaring individual seemingly faced with the meet! Of a liv. ing experience? In an effort to see beyond themselves, or an 'i, ivory tower tthe dorml students come face to face with insti. , tutional pains. The pains come in all kinds of feelings. Sally feels it when she rides the elevator to the eighth floor. She knows where shets going when she gets on; but the ride up seems to displace her somewhere. She is left thinking of herself as typical . . . Miss Typical living in room 800, somewhere and somehow lost to obscurity. But itts those everyday obscure failings that blurr into senseless, ttremember the timeu stories . . . the time they woke you up at 2:30 a.m. for an L.D. two floors below yours. Your hometown honey said he had been trying to get yen for a couple of days. -It was the only time he could get through . . . or the time you forgot your meal ticket. You had to go back and get it. You guessed they didnt trust you. Jack remembers the time he got caught with a girl in his room. It was after hours and a little hard to explain. Those things can he laughed at now, and maybe even for- gotten. But since you cant always forget the bad, you try to replace it with the good. And itts those good memories of dorm life tthey can come- every day tool that accentuate a somewhat drab existence. Itts learning to like people dif- ferent than you, finding new ways to help care for someone or something, maybe those you hardly know. Itts partying in the halls, joking it up a bit, playing tag with the guys. throwing the football around. Itts the mass rush to the mail box for some outside contact e a moment of bliss, a small way to escape As you look back again at those forever lasting memories of pantyraids and dime-dryers, you know something just wasntt right. The ivory tower was crumbling and all you could listen to were half-truths. You knew you didn't like your roommate. He always talked behind your back. She always wore your clothes without asking. Your room was by the phone and you learned to sleep with the ringing in your ears. You tried so many times to study with the spa- radic reverberations bouncing off one room into the next, 50 you found the time to make it to the library. A sort of sanc- tuary away from it all. You wanted too many times to be yourself instead of just another number. The smiling faces you saw did not know your name and they did not see You for what you really were. But the game was there and you played it. The rules were discriminatory but you abided. Still you wondered, tlHave I been changed in the night? i How can I be different from you who eats the same food, if you want to; who keeps the same hours, if you care to; Who knows the same rules, if you have to? And what sepaltates me from you and you and you . . . Dorms have to speak for themselves. You have to have been there to feel these things. You have to say to yourselv "I spent BOWo of my time there, I ate there, I slept there. and By Donna Sigfusson Photos by Darrell Hoemann 205 Endurance: a one word definition of dorm living 1 i z, I me sometimes I studied there along with other necessities, And what did it all lead to?" A few friendships, a few good times, maybe a little more, maybe a little less. What is the Hlittle more" in dorm living? Maybe your p A. tpersonnel assistanti can help out here. If you ever go so far as to ask a PA. why helshe became a P.A., you will heara variety of answers all of which center around, til like peo. ple." And if Jane tends to think of her PA. as anything but a. peer, shes the one to lose. P.A.ts are the ones who fostera positive feeling about dorms. Of course, they are the first to admit the problems of noise and privacy, but they generally look at the situation as a whole. Diane Pool,iP.A. in Jahn. ston, has learned through her various dorm experiences that any environment is what you make it e people are to blame themselves if they are constantly depressed and apathetic. Dick McCreary, a student living in Caulfield House, feels close to the guys in the dorm. "Naturally therets the noise problem; but as far as I can see, people are trying a they give a damn about it? Perhaps that is what is holding everything together. The fact is people do come back to dorms. Many have gone off campus only to retreat back to dorms. The dorm does offer something a meals are there, little housekeeping is needed, social experiences are within reach, if you thrive on that sort, and all in all, close ties to the Univer'sity are ever present. Itts easier for the people who feel dorms have a "little less" to offer. They question without hesitation. Yet they know someonets making the rules. They feel sure of one thing, though, there is not enough interaction between themselves and that somebody or somebodies way up there on the proverbial ladder. You might have heard of IRHA, Undependent Residence Halls Associationl. Its been said that its the second largest organization on campus, second only to MSA, and that's true. You feel sure that anything so big and powerful has got to have enough money to alleviate distasteful policieslf youtve attended any of those mandatory house meetings, your P.A. has probably told you where your money has gone: 5570 of all the money goes to each house; 1070 of this goes to a Group Council consisting of elected officers from each house; and finally, 1505 of this goes to an Executive Committee, which makes it possible to expend money for entertainment, decorations, Momts Weekends, KCCS radio station and the like. Essentially, each house is a central governing body belonging to IRHA. And according to Jim Green, IRHA President, if any disturbances arise in a house, its probably due to lack of leadership in housing officersof Head Residents. Pat Farrell, former IRHA President, Would certainly tend to agree with this. HJust as times change. life- styles differ. If there are no innovators to change traditional rules, there is going to be poor interaction With the studentS- There are hopes for mutual goals between IRHA an students. But sometimes its frustrating." Many students just don't care enough to fight long enough for their beliefs. Some have failed to try in the W place. But one dorm group did vocalize its demands: Blair l Dorm life: Itts learning to like people different than you . . f 208 Group. They were allowed to withdraw from IRHA after much committee discussion within IRHA. Originally, Blair wanted out for money reasons. When they found out it Was not a valid reason for leaving, they persisted until appmVal for withdrawal was given. IRHA claims it is trying to de. velop certain necessities for students and put them into practice. But students disclaim that IRHA is doing any Such thing. Even one P.A. pointed out, ttThey are worthless. Yo" never hear of them unless there,s trouble." Dorothy Gaitor. PA. of Atchison House, agrees with this. tlIRHA needs to be united. Its purpose is good but it tends to be apathetic to a certain extent? Another reason for Blairts withdrawhl was the restriction placed on Donnelly Hallts open housing. It seems there was some demand by conservative students to exclude open. housing rights. Thus, the Housing Office figured there wasa large enough percentage of men and women to appropriate a dorm residence without intervisitation. Donnelly Hall was chosen because of its high turn-over rate. Kerry OtHallaron, Governor of Smith Hall, also in Blair Group, held a censensus for most of the boys in his dorm when he said, ttOur wants really call for a 24-hour visitation i rule. Maybe to them it has a sexual connotation, I don't a know. All I do know is that out of maybe 70 guys, most wont be back here next year? The problem of apathy in the Blair Group has been solved too. ttThe Blair Group Students Association is ad- vantageous," says Barton Housets Jay Marion. It makes its own decisions that directly affect the students. If there are complaints, there is someone to talk to. The other way- with IRHA e the headquarters were somewhere else. They really didnt seem to care. We have a much better response this way, people are loyal to the house." If someone is to make the dorm a home, a certain amount of this kind of positive feeling has to grow. A lot depends on the environment. Those first few moments in the dorm can transpire into lasting impressions. ttThis is my room; even though the shades are broken, they can be fixed. Even though the walls are dirty white, I can paint them. Even though the phone is outside my door, I will endure it." And endure it you must because endurance is a one-word definition of dorm living. Conditioning is pait of playing the game. Some adhere and some donlt. New co-eds face having one phone for thirty girls. Guys have to obey their dates' dorm hours. Open-housing has strict enforcements, and there are a lot of other petty rules, too. Whether you choose dorm life for one year or four yearS. is strictly your own decision. When you finally leave, you leave behind the constant chattering, the ever-present hum of stereos and ringing phones above you, below you, anda" around you. You leave behind all the phone messages You never got, and the bomb scares that always loomed. But You take along some memories, even though your home wasl"51 a place eight floors up, at the end of the hall. Next year someone else will find another poster to cover the falling plaster, smudged with tape marks. Maybe it will read some' thing like, ttSmile, its only three more years." And even if there isnit any lasting consolation in that;at least its a start.

Right: Dorm life had its ood oints, too-just pull out a beer and shoot t e bu 1 until two in the morning. Below: Blair Grou brought in a little recreation for its residents this ear. The pinball machines, located in the lounge, ecame so popular that the P.A.'s had to pull people away in order to close the lounge at night. 210 A sorority is like a family with 90 kids, life,s tough but . . . its worth it all . Do you Suzy Sorority swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? There she sat again a the defendant. This time the court- room setting had changed. The jury did not sit behind a wooden panel or in the Loading Zone or even in her girlfriendts dorm room. The courtroom was her own sorority house. "What are we doing here anyway? Let's go look for an apartment," the prosecuting attorney fired at her. The prosecuting attorney was not a stranger or even a slight ac- quaintance. It was her roommate. Once again the thought struck a nerve center. The rush chairman had just come in asking for volunteers to go out in the ice storm to pick up a rushee. uWhy me'im she asked herself. "Barb has a car and besides that I went last time? GJ The social chairman had just drained her purse of the last f dime she was saving to buy that pack of cigarettes. ttI didIYt even go to that exchange or drink a drop of that , beer we got when we changed rooms!" uNo dinner until the hall is clean," the house chairman was screaming for the fourth time. She looked the prosecuting attorney in the eye and for a second she forgot she was the defendant. She was tempted to say: uLetys start tomorrow. Redwoodts building some new apartments. Maybe they have some openings? But then she remembered. She chose to be the defendant. She didnt have to finagle her way out of it by making up Some story to prove her innocence. She pledged the sorority house for a purpose. AS she evaded the attorneys questions her thoughts went t0 that day three and a half years ago when she first took on the defendants role. She had called home to tell her parents of her choice. uYou know you really didnt have to pledge. We thought YOU Were going through rush just to meet people," her well- meaning parents said. BY Iudy Scott Photos by Martha Hartnett x She had met the people all right. And she had liked the sense of excitement they projected. She had portrayed an interest in activities at one of the rush parties. Before she could tell the next girl her home- town and major, girls were over telling her about Leader- ship Orientation, Association of Women Students and Students for Danforth. Pledgeship offered her a new experience. In the weeks that followed, the girls that were now her sorority sisters asked if she were still interested in activities. The day of Merry-Go-Round she was in the clinic. Her Big Sis brought her forms to fill out for the various committees she had spoken of. Pledge sisters whom she hardly knew visited her in the clinic to tell her they Wished they could take a rest too. She found girls with many of the same problems she faced. They too were being falsely accused and stero-typed, even as pledges. But she guessed it was worth it. The good things made up for the bad. 211 More than a house its a home, A personal place. Warmth and security, Breakfast in slippers and sit down dinner. t Take her pledge walk-out, for example. A group of 30- M Some girls, with a whole weekend to do nothing but get ll 1 along with each other, was 100 miles from civilization in an l 1. Ozark cabin. Among several factors uniting the criminals ' 1 T l was that they had stolen all the silverware at the house and dreaded the consequences they had to face upon returning to the house. Perhaps the walk-out built up their defense for the house. And the efforts were made worthwhile at their initiation banquet. The girls all felt an inexplicable closeness to each other, especially when the outstanding pledge and the most spirited pledge were announced. F eelings she didnt know she had, much less could 1 display, came pouring out of her. Why was she crying? Was 1 it because this was the first time she really believed a group 1 of fun-loving, academic-striving girls could find a bond so 1 strong that they could actually feel a genuine sense of pride for the other girls accomplishments? 1; Surely any jury seeing this couldnt be so harsh as to say 212 she was fakey and only cared what status her sorority had. But they weren,t there and they didnt know the intangible unity between a group of girls. Like the girls in the dorm. They always looked at her with accusing eyes. The fact that she was never at dorm meetings and was gone a majority of the time gave them a sense that she felt she was too good for that sort of thing. Few people in her dorm belonged to any group and their dorm friends were usually their only friends living right there on the same floor. She felt lucky to have a place of comfort to go when the noise, squabbles With the head resident and burglaries got er down. Sure. When she left the dorm at the end of the year, she left her friends there. But seeing them was like talking to Strangers. The one friend she did see after moving out of the dorm, gave her the same kind of solitude she had sought in the so- rOltity house during her freshman year. When the Chapter meetings and hassles over who would take the coke bottles t0 the coke room got her down, she found refuge in her dorm friendis room. Yet she never left regretting her move from the dorm. She wondered Where dorm girls went when they were fed up? For a walk? To a boyfriend's house. Escape was fine for a while, but she realized she had to get along with the peo- ple she was living with in the sorority house. There was no escaping it. So she had better make the most of it. But after walking with other greek defendants going to the same classes she was, after studying those old files from sorority sisters she had never even heard of, she began to really enjoy ttmaking the most of it." No longer did she ever feel a stranger at parties. Girls she lived with were always there making her blind dates bear- able or showing approval of her boyfriend. Of course there were those times where she was out-num- bered considerably by independents. At first, she felt strange, but realized the foolishness of it. She began to no- 213 tice it wasntt her being the out-of-place one but instead the bad connotations independents had put on her living condi- tions. Step forward once again, Miss Defendant! The feeling was the same when she went into a room full of girls from Stephens. The prejudgment ofbeing fashion- conscious and conceited hung in the air; the verdict had al- ready been declared. But after first introductions, she found that the clothes of a Stephens girls were of least importance when she found they had some of the same people in common or that they both frequented Harpots. Besides studying and going to parties together, with a houseful of 60 girls someone was always up for rallying. It did not matter if it was three in the afternoon or three in the morning e someone was always there ready to stir up a bit of excitement. Maybe tying ropes to her sisters, door handles 0r stacking up 142 coke bottles in front of the door wasn,t her next door neighbofs idea of a good time. But all was forgotten when she found cellophane on the toilet seats and her makeup and underwear misplaced the next morning. Fair play is fair la . P Vflas she ever bored? Nothing to do? She discovered that the house gave her as much as she cared to put into it. Com- mittees planning for Moms Weekend, proctoring at the library, cleaning up the files or the pledge living room and planning skits for formal rush were always posted. The ac- tivities board had so many posters and announcements on it that she only had to dig to the second layer to find some- thing equal to her mood. Thinking of the activities board snapped her back to the present. Wasn,t there a little sisters meeting today at 6:30 and a candlelight tonight? . ttDon,t be ridiculous. We cantt move out. I have flve minutes to get ready for that meeting and after that I promised to take my pledge daughter to Pizza Inn for 3 There,s always someone, to listen, to laugh with, or to help out, but 110 one to take back the empties. x o e. salad because of our diets and then Betty and I have some old tests to go over for our test tomorrow.', She had truly found the life that fit what she wanted out of living and getting along with 60 other girls. Her living habits of eating, sleeping and studying with 60 girls were not things she could be condemned for but things for which to be admired. She had survived conflicting personalities, more than her Share of sacrifices for rush parties and meetings, and she had come out of it all with a sense of worth. The sorority house had taught her to get along with re- sponsibility, authority, people of her OWn standing and peo- Ple she cared not to deal with sometimes. If this wasntt but a taste of what she would find once she left these friends and her sorority behind, what was? HOW could anyone be prosecuted for receiving an educa- tion in human relationships? ill? Verdict: Not Guilty. , ogy- 215 A spectre is haunting Columbia e the spectre of the shuttle T' bus. From apartment complex to campus, from Stadium em Boulevard to Paris Road, it preys upon its victims. Shuttlebus riders of Columbia, unite! We have nothing to . lose but our leases. This years buses erase years of respect- ability. Our policy of peaceful resistance no longer works: it is time to prepare for the Bus Ridersi Revolution. , The Revolution is imperative because shuttle service is :3 T not the students, answer to campus parking space scarcity 3t em and Columbiais Meter Maids. It is better than walking, more dependable than hitch- I " hiking, but definitely not the chauffeur-driven limousine i i service Missouri students deserve. s The history of all shuttlebuses is the history of injustice. , Kicking, crushing, trampling - no treatment is too good for i T the shuttle students. "Pack ,em in, mash iem down, haul H em ,em of " e that's the managements philosophy. i Consider these shuttlebus injustices: Firstly, total bus capacity is a flexible number. The 3 5 average bus seats 35, but holds two and onevhalf times that T . figure when one counts the people standing up or hanging on for dear life. The motto of the shuttlebus establishment i 3 We uphold the right of shuttle bus riders to peace, prosperity and posh transportation. is: ttTherels always room for more!" Secondly, bus schedules are made to be broken. A 9:05 run really means anytime before or after 9 am. e- if the bus decides to run at all. Thirdly, the comforts of heat in winter, air conditioning in summer and stereo tapes in any season are either lacking or broken. Shuttle students deserve warmth and soothing music before they reach the cold, cruel, world of the campus. In light of these injustices, shuttle students everywhere labor for the impending overthrow of existing bus sched- ules. We decry the 7:05, the 8:05, the 4:45 e no more 811- slavement to a mechanized routine. No more furtive glances at watches or long gazes out of library windows to catch a glimpse of the hated bus. No more running, no more flag- ging down an errant bus. . The theory of the shuttlebus riders can be summed up 1" a single sentence: Abolish all shuttle buses! We are in league with the great revolutionaries of all time: the 1972-73 shuttlebus students rank with the Bolsheviks! the American colonists, the Boxers and the Swamp FOX' .lr'v 4U Raise the battle cry in unison: ttLiberty, Cushioned Bus Seats!" The shuttlebus riders disdain to conceal their views and aims. We openly declare our ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing shuttle conditions. Let the Great Shuttlebus in the Sky shake at the Bus Riders, Revolution! Down with the Bluebird Bus Company of Iowa and the special assembly line for Mercedes-Benz minibuses. Give us the Mercedes roadster, the Cougar, the Cadillac or the Cor- vette instead. We uphold the right of the shuttlebus riders to peace, prosperity and posh transportation! The White Gate Village minibuses are maxi offenders. They more than make up for their size in their repugnance to shuttle students. The double-decker bus means double trouble for us. Ship the London Transport back to London where it belongs. Merrye Auld England is merrier now that we have it and they are rid of it. Swaying down Stadium Boulevard 30 feet above civilization is enough to make any- one skip an 8:40 class! - Rain, snow and sleet keep these carriers from their ap- pOinted rounds. In fact, any type of weather is an excellent excuse for not running. But dont let any huffing, puffing and wheezing fool you. Itts nothing more than cold, calculating greed. Maybe the management can squeeze more money out of us for repairs. How embarrasssing it is to have to say you missed class because you missed your bus. Those excuses havent been good since ttkindergarten-bus-pass-pinned-t0-your-sweater't days. How much more embarrassing it is to meet an old dorm friend as you debark from the shuttlebus and are greeted with the snide remark, ttSo youtre living off campus these days, I seefi Martws for the cause, thatts what we are. The ignominy, the disgrace, the embarrassment a Would C. Brice Ratch- ford ride buses like these? No. Not even with a suspended license would he risk his life and climb on a shuttlebus. Shuttlebus riders! Mobilize for the mass transit society's victory day. Together we are a match for the masterminds of the apartment complex owners. Daily combat demands aggressive action. Remember: the only good shuttlebus is a dead shuttlebus. Break the windows, slit the tires, steal the windshield wipers. Hijack the buses to Boonville, t0 Harpots, to Devilts Icebox, anywhere but the Missouri Book Store! Enlist the aid of our bus drivers. They know and under- stand our plight; they also suffer under the status quo. Rather than tools of the management, they are confidants, friends and coharts in counterrevolution. We will reward our bus drivers handsomely when we Win the Bus Riderst Revolution. Remember the ttbirthday Palty on wheels" for Don, the driver of the double-decker London Transport? That was only the beginning! On victory day we will celebrate royally. Champagne and fellowship Will flow freely, the buses will be redecorated in splendor. The spoils to the victors! We must present a united front against the opposition. DePloy bicycles, tricycles and worn-out Keds for the initial Offensive. Resurrect your skate boards and little red wagons. ROb your younger brothers and sisters of their favorite hi-rise banana bikes. Sabotage the buses and undermine the Fraternity and efforts of the Shuttlebus Establishment. Bury the buses and march onto the streets of triumph. The Revolutionls time has come. Shuttlebuses threaten the high quality of life in Columbia. Inform all candidates for office in city and school elections of the danger shuttle buses pose to the environment. Impassioned cries for justice will fill the air as election time draws near: "Death to the chauvinist shuttlebuses." We recommend that the buses be driven onto Faurot Field for their final demise in the greatest Dodgem of all time. Only when the buses are reduced to an unrecog- nizable pulp will we be vindicated. Victory at last! Up against the wall, managers! Power to the shuttle students! WE INTERRUPT THIS MESSAGE TO BRING YOU A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE SHUTTLE BUS ESTABLISHMENT UNDER THE EQUAL TIME PROVISION . . . Dontt talk to the bus drivers. Deposit the exact change. Move to the rear of the bus. No transfers. This bus dontt carry no gamblers, no cee-gar smokers, no down-and-outers, no this bus dontt carry no smart-aleck students, no apartment dwellers .

Don't believe it. There is change here. It is not drastic or immediate but it does happen. Often we are too close to even notice it. But after four years at the University, I am sure of it. Some of the changes are obvious; those changes you would expect to happen in any four years. International House of Pancakes, Poor Richardts, Iack-In-The-Box have 224 all sprung up offering relief from greek house and dorm food. Student oriented shops like The Poser Place, Middle Earth, Ladigo of London, Poor Cow and The Tape Worm have opened their doors for business. The Missouri Student Store offered an alternative to the privately owned bookstores. Students could buy low cost school supplies and texts. What was four years ago nothing but scaffolding, beams and concrete, Hearnes Multipurpose Building now houses more than 12,500 people at every basketball game. GCB and Tucker halls are where empty, grassy lots once lay. The new Chemistry Building has finally been completed and new students donit know where their chem classes are going to be held. Four years ago the biggest night spots were Village Inn and Shakeys. Now you have to actually Choose. There's Harpois and Fordis Theatre. Then thereis The 18th Amend- ment and 2100 West; Goodlife and Loading Zone, with most of these establishments being run by young people. Most of Columbiais city streets have become one-way and it takes four extra right turns to get where you are going. Today freshman are allowed to have cars on campus which has increased traffic immensely, as did the suspension of car registration fees. There is even talk now of a pedestrian campus as the total number of cars, pedestrians and bike riders increases. Physical changes like these are almost inevitable. They do little to reflect a silent evolution that is going on at Missouri. The most important changes may not be the most obvious ones; and the reasons behind them are whatis significant. Homecoming hasnit faded in one year. The Student Health Clinic isnit being challenged without reason. Faculty members arenit just leaving for lack of anything better to do. The SAVITAR isnit dying just because. And students don't decide in one day to quit wearing skirts and begin wearing jeans and T-shirts. What it all points to is the biggest change of all -- the attitude of the students. No one can really say what happened or why, it just seems a majority of students find it hard to care about any- thing anymore. A general apathy has taken over. Everyone has become disconnected and uninvolved. Along with this they feel less age responsible to the University and responsible only to them- 1 selves, which at times is even questionable. They are guided by what they feelis right or by their own whims. No longer 3 are they led by the proverbial hand. This lack of caring and responsibility has led to a general lack of any attitude. An apathy that has led many to believe Missouri is a static place to be. The problem is that a student today is faced with almost an infinite number of potential choices, decisions, ways and means. Thatis what his four years is all about. There is SO much to be done that nothing is done, which is easily, but wrongly, translated into apparent apathy. Over the last four i years, Missouri has become anything but more simple and sympathetic. Numerous new courses and activities have i been added. There are issues without answers and problems without solutions. There is so much for a studem : to do that for the most part nothing gets done. It is an interesting paradox. Todayis students say that . f-o-CD OdCLl-wm ft 18 ge ger ral ve Jst nd iut lur nd me nd ant hat a. they are above things like Homecoming displays, University sponsored dances and other traditions, that they have better things to worry about. Thatls where the paradox lies, because the energy is not being redirected but rather merely diffused. Hundreds of hours and dollars used to be spent on Homecoming. Now little effort is put into it. And unfortu- nately, the energy has not been redirected in to charity proj- ects or the such but rather the whole thing has been for- gotten. Independent Week has come and gone. No longer do we have a dozen queens to gaze at. Only a few have managed to hang in there. No one seems to want to sponsor queen contests anymore. And then there is the SAVITAR. It too may die a slow and painful death. The staff has struggled to maintain it for those students still interested but the road has been rough and will be even tougher next year. Its fine that these things are being challenged and changed, if they have lost their meaning, but nothing has cropped up in their place. Nothing but apathy. But that is not all that has been happening here over the last four years. Change in dress is perhaps one of the most noticeable manifestations for new ideas. Four years ago dresses were proper for class and Sunday dinner at the dorm. Slacks were only appropriate for touch football or a tennis match. Now jeans are worn everywhere. And with jeans came T-shirts, army jackets and sandals. Its a move to a less confining lifestyle. Students want to be more free. Four years ago there were hours for freshman girls and all girls needed parentst per- mission to have keys. There was no intervisitation. Now, al- though controlled, intervisitation has been initiated. Freshman girls will probably not have hours nextyear. And no letters home to your parents. The idea of ttsubstitute parenti, has gone out the door. Real freedom came when the Student Health Clinic of- fered an advisory and referral service on birth control. The Greek stystem has had to change with the times as well. Hazing and hell week have become a thing of the past. No longer is the fraternity party the most important aspect of a girls social life. Greek houses have instead become a home. A place where the anonymity of the University can he escaped, at least for a little while. Still other things are happening that affect the lives of all the students and the kind of education they receive. Tuition has gone up twice and many of the classes have lost that personal touch. More students are taking advantage of the pass-fail system. And even a few students are passing up required courses altogether and developing their own majors. Role and Scope was introduced creating great fury, but the fury has subsided now. No one is really sure what the effects of the new Role and Scope will be on the Univer- Sity. Only time will tell. The legislature has begun to question the way the Univer- sity has been using its money and cuts in appropriations have been common. Some faculty members have become disenchanted with the way the University is run and several have left their posts. These four years have seen a drastic change in adminis- tration with a new University President, Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Provost, Dean of Students, etc. i. . . it just seems a majority of students find it hard to care about anything anymoreK Four years ago the University faced demonstrations, dis- turbances and anti-war protests. But now it has all died down. No one seems to be interested anymore. The University, then, is not static; there is change. There is potential here but it must be put to use. Students cannot just sit around and wait for it to happen, because it wont. Involved students make for an involved university; a unla versity open and responsive to progressive and constructive Vchange. e Barb Wissmann 225 . .uv ,7 mm a , w, is A university without people is emptiness, for it is people who make a university. Life without participation is emptiness as well. 231 editors note The SAVITAR has been an integral part of my life during my four years at Missouri. It's almost over now 4 and Pm a little lost.
