Especially when they can't see the difference between Jesse Hall and the Arts and Science building. Most students have seen Miller Strebig around campus. His gray hair, permanent sunglasses, and seeing-eye dog Star make him a somewhat atypical and conspicuous student. Miller's major is psychology and he's one of the graduates in the class of '77. However, he plans to continue school and aspires to eventually become a psychiatrist. The fact that he is blind doesn't concern him. He overcomes this disability with a flawless memory and a highly developed sense of hearing. Fifteen years ago Miller was blinded by caustic acid, but that hasn't stopped him from leading a "normal" life. "This ' blindness is just an inconvenience. It's just put more drive in me." Miller jogs, usually with a close friend like Diane Young; cooks his own meals; and takes voice lessons. tMy'teacher say I'll be another Ray Charles."i Asked what he missed seeing most, Miller responded in a typically chauvenistic way.

There wasn't even a graduate of Bette Jean's Dance h Academy in downtown Columbia. But, the 23 couples who danced in the third annual Dance Marathon for Muscular Dystrophy sponsored by Greeks against Dystrophy, Inter-Fraternity Council and KCOU radio, were highly successful in their fight against MD. The music e from rock 'n' roll and disco to bluegrass and country 'n' western e filled Rothwell Gymnasium from 6 pm. Feb. 18 to midnight Feb. 19. Eight local bands played, and between bands, Co-chairman e DJ. Rick Dutton and records Photos by Dan White 84 "wwrm-unwikuw-tm m; n: u; Marathons net over $10,000 kept the dancers moving. Dancers got sponsors to pledge money for every hour they danced. The couple who raised the most money was awarded two stereos and the second place pair won 'lO-speed bicycles. It was a crazy weekend for those who participated. There were contests for everything from t'Most Intimate Dancers" t0 HBest JitterbuggersH and HMost Original Dancers." The girls picked "Best Guyts Legs" and the guys decided on "Wildest Woman." And whenever things got a little dull, you could count on Co-chairman Nick Gilles to swallow a goldfish e one for every $1,000 raised. But nobody forgot the reason they were there e to raise money for muscular dystrophy. When there was a question as to whether the $10000 goal would be reached, every dancer was given a dime to call a friend to start street corner collections. By Saturday night the goal was surpassed. Together the Dance Marathon and the Lambda Chi.AIpha Basketball Marathon raised $10,175.00, entitling the University to send a representative to the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon in the Fall. They left weary, fatigued, haggard and downright beat, and some of the participants swore theytd never dance again, but no one could say the dance hadn't gotten their money's worth. Text by Joyce King Photos by Dan VVhito - I 5 mo CANT 1 a: mi: WHO 86 Photos by David Walters , Z ? z i z Looking through the glasses of UMCts placement directors, the job market is rosy. If you want a job and take the initiative to use the facilities they offer, you got it made in the shade. Actually, of the directors that wear glasses, none are rose-tinted. They just know their jobs and what they are capable of doing, each having his own M.O. There are five professional schools on campus with highly organized placement offices: College of Agriculture, Roger L. Morrison, M.A., director; College of Business and Public Administration, Ron King, M.Ed., director; College of Education, R.H. Reifschneider, E.Ed., director; College of Engineering, Jack W. Morgan, Ph.D. assistant dean and director; School of Journalism, Robert W. Haverfield, B.J., A.M., director. The other professional schools such as law, medical, nursing and home economics Channel their students through the deans office of their respective schools. Students from the College of Arts 8t Science were not officially represented for career Planning and placement until this year with the opening of the Career Planning and Placement Center tCPPCi on the first floor of the Noyes Building on Sixth Street. Dr. Joe Johnston, director, 87 88 and his staff deal not only with A86 students but also with those in Home Ec and any other major that needs guidance. Each of the professional schools with organized placement offices offer basically the same services though in varying degrees. How-to literature and company propaganda pamphlets bulge from respective libraries. Prospective employers are courted and hosted when they arrive on schedule thopefullyi to check out the latest talent. Services offered range from the basic dissemination of words of wisdom to the gainfully unemployed to video-taped mock interviews and touch-tone dialing to find out what jobs are up for grabs that week. Each office knows what works for them and their methods are rarely the same. Jack Morgan, director for the College of Engineering, has been at the job for 20 years. He accepted the post of assistant dean and inherited the duties of placement director from his predecessor. Before accepting this position he was an administrator for another technical school. Morgan's office deals mostly with graduating engineering students or those with masters degrees. Students with degrees in Photos by David Walters computer science, math, chemistry, physics and the like are also welcome to use the facilities there as the engineering field can use students with such backgrounds. This last spring has been the busiest interview-wise for engineering since the heyday of the space age business in the late sixites. There is a great demand for computer-based occupations and the engineering field in general. Morgan says that of those students who utilize their placement services, 90h; have gotten jobs. The placement office in the College of Business and Public Administration doesntt advocate playing the "numbers game" in sending out hundreds of letters of application. Ron King, - director, doesn't totally disregard the value of letters but feels the interview and personal contact when possible are more effective. The B8tPA placement office keeps files on their students and graduates indefinitely in case a company calls for someone with experience but Would like to move on. The WATS line in the secretary's office is available to any student who wants to make a follow-up call to a prospective employer. The more interaction between student and employer the better. Unlike most other placement offices on campus, businessl is located away from the main building, in 121 Gentry Hall. King acknowledges that their location may be a handicap to the full utilization of their services but with the help of well-placed bulletin boards and the fall introductory meeting, they have about all the students they can handle. Their placement record is in the upper 80th; King says. About 200 Companies interviewed there within the last year - more than enought traffic to keep the 12 interview rooms and King's office at peak operating capacity. Roger Morrison, placement director for the College of Agriculture, has been on the UMC campus since last March, just a few months longer than King who came last August. As is Characteristic of most of the directors, Morrison likes dealing with students. He feels he is "people orientedt' and enjoys the feedback he gets from students. 89 Photos by David Walters 90 The Ag office offers workshops in the fall and spring on a first come, first serve basis. They use video-tape machines to set up mock interviews and can handle only 30 to 40 students. There is also a number the students can call WCall Aggie"l to get a weekly report on job openings. For those students who wander into the office, there is a thick three-ring binder job notebook bulging with company data. If they come across something intriguing they can call or write the employer. The job market is looking good for his students, Morrison says. "People who know how to produce food are in real demandf he says. Now, kids with farm backgrounds are in big demand for all types of jobs because of certain traits characteristic of them: responsibility, maturity, being used to a time schedule. The Ag office places 9O-95h2 of the students that come through for help. The College of Education is like that man without a country on the UMC campus. Most of the representatives from campus placement offices will attend the Midwest Career Planning Association tMCPAl meeting in Detroit this summer. rte The Education rep is staying home. They tried going before but nobody wanted them. The Education placement office deals directly with school administrators and officials. Those attending the MCPA and other meetings like them are placement reps and employer members - not the type of people helpful to the future employment of our overload of education students. To combat obstacles like these, R.H. Reifschneider, director, manages a budget somewhat larger than usual $265,000 compared to the School of Journalism's 5131,8001 and his is the only office that charges a fee $31 for placement services. Some of the other placement offices are subsidized by a portion of the particular school's activity fee, if they have one. Limping along on the meager budget they were allocated, the School of Journalism incorporated a zero-credit course in a moment of weakness called Senior Assembly. Taught by the placement director, Robert Haverfield, the course meets once a week for seven or eight weeks covering such topics as letters of application and resumes, interviewing and what is available in the various fields. You must take the course and pass to graduate. Haverfield believes in thinking of yourself as a $25,000 product you are trying to sell to an employer. He believes in looking your worth, on paper and in person. In general, the appearance of your resume or your shoes could mean whether you are shown the door in or out. TheJournalism placement office brings in interviewers to help kids get jobs but admits that more than 50h; of the students get jobs on their own. "It's a crazy business," Haverfield says. "Newspaper people don't know when they're going to want someone. They call on short notice and we scramble to get it posted, call students." For the most of the other placement offices, they know who is coming and when six months to a year ahead of time. In J-school, a desperate employer could call for someone they need in four days and could they come interview tomorrow? Despite the hectic atmosphere, the School of Journalism has recently received quite a bit of publicity regarding its placement record. Last year it was about 8792: compared to Northwestern's upper601h: and Columbia's 5572;. Located on the first floor of Noyes Building is the Career Planning and Placement Center, an extension of the testing and counseling services offered in Parker Hall. To some, the very existence of this office is a bone of contention, others either don't know it exists or aren't aware of a conflict. The CPPC grew out of the Career Information Office in Parker Hall, In 1974 they incorporated peer model counseling in Parker by hiring 14 undergraduates to talk with students who came in for help. Later they changed their name to the Career Planning Center and now it is the CPPC. The CPPC moved into their new location in Noyes last January with the help of a federal grant. Only testing and counseling remain in Parker. Some people fear that the CPPC is a move towards centralized placement services for the entire University. CPPC 91 92 reps argue convincingly against this notion. "We're be centralized." says John Bazin, career information planning specialist. "It wouldn't work on this campL main thrust of their operation is to represent Arts 8t 5 students and those in other majors not helped by the professional schools placement offices. CPPC personnel attended the MCPA meeting last' confused some employers into thinking that they hac through the CPPC to interview students. Hopefully, t cleared up by the next meeting. "We try to prepare to get themselves a job." says Bazin, "placement is jL Photos by David Walters the cake." Director Joe Johnston oversees his growing staff and extensive library. Besides files on employment opportunities, how-to literature, tapes on various majors and the like, the office also boasts a video-tape machine and Singer Career Awareness Lab Which can test one's affinity for certain career areas. Bazin figures it will take five years before the Center is operating at optimum efficiency. Until then, students continue to seek help and guidance from what they have to offer. As many as 50 people a day may come in. There is no question that all the placement offices on UMC's campus are perpetually busy and successful. Of those kids who didn't get jobs, the general feeling is that it's because they didn't want one, went on to graduate school or were no-talents. If you adhere to the good old Puritan Ethic you'll go far in the world. As Haverfield often relates to his students, "The easiest time to get a job is when you have one." After you get that first one, you can coast. Text by Melissa Sturges 93 Un-supermarket stays progressively old Computerized cash registers, aisles you get lost in and piped-in shopping music characterize todayis "super" markets. But automation and progress hasn't hit Lee Street Shop. Lee Street Shop, 603 Lee Street, has remained virtually the same as it was when it opened in 1927. And since 1927, University students e dorm, fraternity and off-campus dwellers alike e have looked to Lee Street Shop for everything from groceries and personal items to homemade sandwiches. Walking into the store is like stepping into another decade. The building itself tunder an old house, the bell that rings when you open the door, even the oid-fashioned soda cooler in the center of the floor make you feel almost nostalgic. Lee Street Shop has become a permanent fixture on campus, as much a part of many students' daily lives as the Union and the quad. It's the kind of place alumni visit when they're in town, just to see if everything is still the same. Millie Rathert, who has owned Lee Street Shop for 13 years, says there are always visitors on football beekends. And occasionally she'll get a carol or letter from a former patron of the store. There's something special about Lee Street Shop. As one frequent customer expressed it: "This place is great!" And anyone who's been there would have to agree. mm Hi7 -GUMERD 4 All the modern conveniences, including an outhouse One day last spring, Bruce Woodbury decided to remove the remains of a semester's worth of entertainment from his van. A few weeks after he swept his van free of marijuana seeds, Woodbury was surprised to observe 6O pot plants blooming In his driveway He wasn 't worried about being taken into police custody, however. When you live in Route 1, about 25-30 miles southeast of Columbia, you Channel your worries toward poachers rather than policemen. Woodbury's home, a renovated farm shack, is so secluded that Midwestern Bell was forced to install 1,200 feet of cable in order to plant a telephone in his humble abode. "I think the phone company lost on that deal, when you consider I had to pay the normal installation cost," Woodbury said through a hearty laugh. The senior environmental education major, who'll graduate in January, might have majored in Economics. The lanky native of St. Joseph, Mo., rented the dilapidated shack for a year at no cost. Well, there were a few inconveniences. There's no running water, Woodbury must chop wood for heat and one is likely to numb his behind while performing basic functions in the outhouse during sub-zero temperatures. "Actually, the outhouse isn't as inconvenient as you think," Woodbury said, "you can bring the seat inside when it's cold out and slap it down when you're ready to use it. "It's funny, because when it's about 25 degrees it's coldest out there," Woodbury claimed. "Because when the temperature is zero, you numb out." According to Woodbury, the outhouse has some fringe benefits during the warmer months. "The one opening faces the east side and the sun shines on you in the morning," Woodbury said. "lt' 5 pretty relaxing.' Certainly a lot more relaxing than chopping wood all day to combat the winters cold. "In the winter, chopping wood becomes a daily chore," Woodbury said. His red beard and flannel shirt give Woodbury a lumberjack accent. 96 Photos by Dan White 97 98 Photos by Dan White The Bunyanesque figure, who learned to chop wood while in the Boy Scouts, found splitting, cutting and hauling wood an arduous labor during frigid times. i "But I was never cold," Woodbury said with a wealth of pride in his voice. "Except one time, the doors blew open in the middle of the winter. When I got home from school it was 20 degrees in one room and 10 degrees in the other. "I shut the door and fired up the wood heater and in about eight hours it started to warm up," he joked. Rather than watch Missouri Utility Company rates go up, Woodbury knocks trees down. Woodbury, who works for a contractor during the summer, constructed tables out of wood and tree stumps, and decorated his apartment with antique oriental tapestries that he purchased in the less-than-antique price range of 35 cents to five dollars. The outside of Woodbury's home brings new humor to Rocky Balboa's line that all men's apartments are alike. In fact, the exterior of Woodbury's house appears more beat-up than Rocky's face was after going 15 rounds with Appolo Creed. Even Sears Weatherbeater paint would have a hard time restoring the luster to Woodbury's home. The interior, however, is quaint - carpeted by the kind of rugs you grandmother had in 1940 tthe low cut, red, fancy design modeli. The innovative Woodbury even concocted an automatic dog feeder for his canine companion, Cowboy, for those times when the master is on an extended vacation. "I think I might be a hermit,"i he said with a touch of seriousness in his voice. "I'd like to lead a simple life for a while. Living like this has a lot of rewards. Sometimes you get up in the morning and you can walk around the forest in the backyard for half an hour." The area is ideal for bird watchers, a goat watcher's paradise and euphoria for Ewell Gibbons types. HA couple of times I turn around and therels a cow in the backyard," Woodbury noted. "The place is just great. I couldn't describe it properly," Woodbury added. 1'It's the kind of thing words won't do justice to, you'd destroy the meaning." The rustic house probably hasn't had a more loving tenant than Woodbury in its 40-year history. "live heard that it used to be a school house," Woodbury said. And Woodbury sure has learned a lot while in it.

Dan White 104 105 106 A funny thing happened on the way to the Orange Bowl. .331 Photos by Charlie Nye Missouri football coach Al Onofrio lost quite a bit of weight during the summer prior to the Tiger' 5 1976 season. Why, just thinking about a schedule with seven prospective bowl teams would be enough to reduce any man to the dimensions of Stan Laurel. It was no laughing matter. To compound his difficulties, Onofrio was hindered by the early season injury to aH-America candidate Steve Pisarkiewicz. Yet with a makeshift defensive line and an inexperienced junior signal caller to fill in for Zark, the Tigers pulled off a number of upsets that staggered the college football world. Meahwhile, back at the ranch, not even a surplus of 60,000 fans could spur the Tigers to Victory over Iowa-regarded Illinois and Kansas. A funny thing happened to Missouri on the way to the Orange Bowl . . . No one expected Missouri to finish its non-conference slate with a winning record. Visitors to the University of Southern California and Ohio State are often treated harshly. At best, the Tigers might expect to win their first two home games against seemingly mediocre foes. However, every non-conference opponent entered its Missouri confrontation with an unblemished record. So much for conformity. Missouri retained the reputation of giant-killer in its debut at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The outcome of the game was decided by halftime. With Pisarkiewicz leading the assult, Missouri wracked up 46 points against then 8th-ranked USC. Tailback Curtis Brown stole the show from Heisman Trophy candidate Ricky Bell with 108 Dan White Charlie Nye three touchdowns in the first 30 minutes. And Zark's potent arm added three more during the rampage, while the Tiger defensive unit held Southern Cal to 25 points. What wasn't supposed to happen did. Again. From their lofty 6th place ranking the Tigers fell into the hands of a hungry little team from Illinois. And they were eaten alive by a 31-6 count. On the road to Columbus, Onofrio was faced with an empty quarterback spot to fill, not to mention the thought of facing the Woody Hayes legend and the No. 2 ranked Buckeyes. And Rickie Sutherland was making embarassing predictions. Onofrio was left with only one choice: throw junior quarterback Pete Woods to the wolves and let him make Sutherland's predictions come true. Woods literally waited until the last second to work his magic. But, again, it was all according to form in Missouri's wacky season. The Tigers faced the Big Eight schedule with a 3-1 record and a few new heroes, which only made it more difficult to choose the starting roster for each game. Woods, the newcomer, or Zark, the established power? While the referee flipped the coin on the field before each game, Onofrio flipped a coin of his own. Woods won the starting position against conference leader Nebraska, and he ran with the chance. When given the option in the fourth quarter, however, Woods saw 99945 flying down the field. He made the right choice. As he heaved the ball from the end zone, the young quarterback had a nice view of a fallen Nebraska defender and a mercurial Joe Stewart on the way to a game-winning 98-yard touchdown. The Orange Bowl scouts suddenly were more than interested. . ;;;;;; cham'emg 109 nu a uv. XX...- .

But imagine your exultationwhen you rip-off an A on the final. Imagine your exultation when your team rips-off an upset against the Buckeyes. Imagine. Junior quarterback Pete Woods had waited almost three years. And would have waited longer if he had been red-shirted to save a year's eligibility like Coack Onofrio wanted. But with four minutes left and 80 yards separating his team from an upset, Woods could wait no longer. Playing like a veteran, Woods engineered a march that put it all within reach. From the three-yard line he popped one into the end zone to Leo Lewis for six points. Now a single point would give the Tigers a tie. Two points would give them a miracle. They went for the miracle. And Mizzou won, 22-21. And all Woody Hayes could say was "nuts, nuts, nuts." 114 e L. . ' ' Charlie Ny 115 $ ' 1.

Future Hopes built on integrity and OnOfrio Head coach Al Onofrio's future was as unpredictable as the season had been for the Tigers. Bumper stickers reading "Fire Onofrio" were sold outside the stadium by the opposition, while supporters promoted integrity and "On With Onofrio" stickers. The final decision was not made by the paraphernalia peddlers, but by the Committee on Intercol- legiate Athletics and the curators. Their decision: "On With Onofrio" for three more years.

The Big Eight Championship marked the beginning of Tiger troubles. Although they placed third in the conference competition, junior Brad Hawthorne was forced to drop out of the meet after only one mile. Senior co-captain Brad Reese, one of the Tiger's premier runners, placed 5th in the Big Eight, but was injured soon afterward. Healthy senior co-captain Ron Harmon came in' 8th in the conference. Coach Lingleis crew will lose only two lettermen in 1977, which makes the future scene brighter. Among those returning to the Tiger harriers is Mark Hofius, a promising sophomore who finished well in this season's regional competition. If the Tigers stay healthy, they will be a strong contender in '77. 121 E l t t r t 1 t t Rugby 5 t i It was a season rich in memories and injuries for the Missouri rugby team. But that's nothing new for the reckless squad of players and partyers. The intense competition on the field usually mellowed by evening, when the Missouri team and their opponents met in the bars for a few beers and a few more rugby songs. Club President Chuck Linn led the crew onally, in the bars and on the field, to a successful and satisfying season. e Dan White 122 Stewart's Volkswagen crew is dealt the odd hand The poignant finality of it all began to crowd the cluttered thoughts of Kim Anderson as he left Kemper Arena behind him. His face masked the frustrated helplessness that blanketed, at least for the moment, the pride and pleasure of a successful season. The scoreboard blinked . . . Kansas State 72, Missouri 67. The stat sheet credited Anderson with 12 points and six rebounds in 18 minutes of regulation play plus the overtime. Those numbers rang impressively for one whose disabled right shoulder and chest curtailed any chance of playing against Oklahoma and in the first half against Kansas State. But it wasn't how the Big Eight Player of the Year had planned to end it. Hope that burned for an NCAA at-large bid found itself extinguished two days later when the NCAA snubbed a second team from the Big Eight. No agreement resulted with NIT. The Tigers were left to rest on the laurels of their 21-8 campaign. Though it smacked of the what-ifs and might-have-beens and maybe-even-whens that accompany all the attempts that finish short of expectations, Mizzou had reason to wonder. The combination of illnesses and ineligibilities that decimated the '76-'77 Tigers by March cast a lingering shadow across their successes. A look into the past, however, revealed that only the record-setting '75-'76 effort outshown the sun brilliance of seniors Anderson, Jim Kennedy, Scott Sims, James Clabon, Danny Van Rheen and the rest of the Tiger crew. Barr J Locher But Missouri coach Norm Stewart, well-known for eliciting past premier efforts from teams critics claimed weren't truly that good, was dealt the odd hand. He ran out of able-bodied performers. No ace in the hole appeared, though Anderson nearly pulled the Tigers through against Kansas State in storybook fashion. That the series of misfortune that befell Missouri had to leave the Tigers with a bittersweet tinge in their mouths proved unfortunate. The season had begun in November with legitimate hopes of matching the magnificent 26-5 magic of the previous year. That the gritty Tigers hung on as long as they did with a squad that numbered only nine e and wavered to eight on occasion e for more than half the season, became a tribute in itself. Mizzou expectations ran high in preseason bantering. The return of veterans Anderson, Kennedy, Clabon and Stan Ray e plus impressive newcomer Clay Johnson up front guaranteed that. The early loss of starting guard Jeff Currie became a premonition of what was to come. Yet the play of the heady Sims and precocious freshman Larry Drew left the Mizzou backcourt in good hands if net with overwhelming depth. The Tigers punctuated December with titles at the Show Me Classic, Sun Carnival and Big Eight Holiday Tournament. So far, so good. A conference opening loss at Kansas ended a six-game winning streak e- but Missouri followed up with seven straight triumphs to wrest away control of the league race. The last four of those seven came without Ray, Greg Boone and Doug Ommen, all academic casualities that further depleted the squad. Kennedy's severe ankle sprain suffered two games previous, tainted a conference-clouding loss to Kansas State. Anderson's shoulder problem originated four days later against Iowa State. "If we do manage to get to a post-season tournament, we'll be able to go in a Volkswagen," quipped Stewart in typical fashion. The Mizzou coach retained his sense of humor through it all. Otherwise he might have cried. t Even with Kennedy, Anderson and Sims tsore shoulderl hurting, Mizzou rebuilt its hopes on post-season tournament wins against 'Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Clabon blossomed with 22 points against the Cowboys. Johnson hit his mark with 27 versus the Sooners. Only the pesky Wildcats remained - and an awesome first half surge by the Tigers left them senseless. Only not quite. Kansas State, behind Mike Evans' shooting came back. Free throws caught up with Mizzou. In the end, Kansas State advanced to the Midwest Regional semi'final, losing to eventual NCAA champion Marquette, Missouri sat on its hands, left in the dark. Dan White 126 127 Tim Cochran m x S 0 r d e V M S h 0 h ,.m N rt WTtT'j Dan White The question remained unanswered, destined to become a conversation piece for those who experienced and observed this Missouri team. The potential was left untapped, never to be known. The luster obscured. Kim Anderson, brilliant to the end, yet never knowing how much so, walked on. The records will show that only one other Missouri team, the '75-'76 Tigers, won more games than this year's squad did. The Tigers shot from the field at a record .501 pace and Clay Johnson set an individual field-goal shooting mark with his .575 figure. Kim Anderson finished as the sixth highest career scorer in Missouri history with 1,289 points and as the fifth best career rebounder with 675. Jim Kennedy concluded his career with 1,209 points to rank seventh in career scoring and his 511 rebounds put him eight in that category.

Clay Johnson can, allegedly, leap tail Unions in a single bound. Clay Johnson, reportedly, can pluck quarters off the top of a backboard with his teeth a and leave small change. Clay Johnson can jumpdead car batteries with the electricity generated by one of his two-hand tomahawk stuffs. But the preseason publicity did little to boost the modest forward's ego. Imagine, on the official opening of basketball practice, a television reporter had to coax Johnson to slam one for filmage. Johnson seemed embarrassed when showcasing his leaping talents. This didn't last too long, however. Once the season started, Johnson wore a goId-toothed grin on numerous occasions as he approached the basket unmolested for a lethal Jam. The native of Kansas City broke into Missouri's starting lineup a few games into the 1976-77 season. By season's end, he owned a Tiger aIi-time field goal record by hitting 57.5 per cent of his shots. One doesn't miss many shots taken from a one-inch range. It was Johnson's 39-point performance that prompted Missouri's victory over Colorado at Boulder. And the slinky forward averaged 13.1 points a game, helping Missouri compile a 21-8 record. e What Johnson does best, however, is rebound. His eight rebounds per contest - pretty good for a guy 6-4 a helped commence Missouri's fast break. And when he wasn't starting the break, he was ending it with a vicious stuff. His jamming exploits prompted a Missouri game program to label him a "Dr. Clay." Johnson certainly couldn't be sued for malpractice. 1 Text by Cal Fussman 136 Bruce VanVoorhis Dan White Wrestlers make NCAA top twenty The wrestling Tigers ended their most successful season ever on a number of high notes as Missouri finished 19th at the NCAA championships and Claimed its first aIl-American in the process. . Leading a pack of seven Mizzou NCAA qualifiers, senior tri-captain Terril Williams placed fourth in the 150-pound bracket to earn aII-American honors. Sophomore Dane Ives reached the quarterfinals, only the third Missouri wrestler ever to do so. Under Head Coach Bob Kopnisky the Tigers finished the 1976-77 season with a 10-3 dual record, with losses at the hands of Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Missouri continued to chase these three teams throughout the Big Eight and NCAA championships, but to no avail as the powerhouses took first, second and third respectively In the Big Eight meet and in the national championships. The Tigers racked up 3374 points at the Big Eight championships, their highest point total ever. Ives paced his teammates with a second place finish, followed by third place finishers Williams, junior Mike Slyman, sophomore Mike Pollack and senior Jim Wagemann. Also qualifying for the NCAA meet were sophomores Steve Biddick and David Miller. The annual Christmas jaunt to Florida proved fruitful for the Tigers. Missouri, as in the previous year, took second behind Iowa State in the Sunshine Open. While on the two-week trek, the Tigers opened their dual season by defeating Richmond University, Florida International University and Auburn University. a In this year's Southwest Missouri State Invitational, Missouri unseated defending Champion lllionois State. Ives, Harold Richie and Wagemann captured the top spots in their weight divisions. Ritchie, a sophomore, was in the midst of an outstanding , season with a 21-3-0 record when a sternum injury suffered in Oklahoma brought him to a disapointing halt. Greatly encouraged by the success of his young team, Coach Kopnisky said, "We're as good as any top twenty team in the nation. This year we beat everyone we should have and lost to everyone we should have. 140 ism Teril Williams: Mizzotfs first all-American 0n the mats Teril Williams capped a tremendous two-year career at Missouri by becoming its first wrestling aII-American during the 1977 NCAA Championships. The quiet, soft-spoken St. Louis native turned aggresive on the mat, incorporating his knowledge of martial arts into his wrestling style. The result e a 20-6 season record. Despite injuries to both knees throughout the season, Williams battled his way to third place in the Big Eight tournament, earning a shot at the national title. His performance at the NCAA included 1W0 pins, one of which was recorded as the fastest of the meet at 32 seconds. After transferring from Forest Park Junior College, Williams amassed a 43-13 record, including 12 pins. In his two seasons at Mizzou, Williams was pinned only once. Photos by Dan White 141 The NCAA put some Tigers in their tank What do you say about a team that finished the season with an 8-2 dual meet record, a second place finish in the Big Eight, fifteen new school records, five new conference marks, and a trip to the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships? t'lt's not over yet," according to Coach Joe Goldfarb. With a good recruiting year and the return of sophomore freestyler Kevin DeForrest, the Tiger tankers could claim aH-American fame. But the 1976-77 season was nothing to cry about Missouri took third at the Miner Relays, third at' the Big Eight Relays, and second at the Big Eight Championships. The 16 member team qualified for nationals in six events, and DeForrest finished in the top twenty in the 50-yard freestyle, an event he had swum only five times before. Another sophomore, Tom Molina, set a Big Eight record in the 200-yard freestyle with a first-place finish at the Big Eight Championships. Molina, DeForrest, .Loren Druz and JeffJutte combined for a conference record in the 400-yard freestyle relay, and the Tigers added another conference best in the 800-yard freestyle relay with DeForrest, Druz, Molina nd Jim Durham. 1 It was the school's most successful season ever, and Coach Goldfarb is looking forward to an even better finish in the future. "Naturally, I'm disappointed we couldn't do better at nationals. But we peaked for the conference meet and it showed with our finish. Hopefully we can do a little better next year. 142 144 w Mk Champions spotlight successful track season Coach Bob Teel took a young but enthusiastic team and won some team and personal triumphs during the 1977 season. The indoor season saw the Tigers battle injuries and inexperience, but Missouri still won the first three home meets it hosted, and went on to take third in the United States Track and Field Federation Meet. Dan Lavitt, Nat Page, Dele Udo, Jerry Williams, and Abdu Mosquito won alI-American honors for first place finishes in the meet. At the Big Eight Conference meet, Missouri netted only fourth place but sent jumping Nat Page and 440- -man Dele Udo to the NCAA meet. Page tied for second and Udo finished fourth. Outdoors the Tigers matured and came on strong. As long jumper Peppie Whitaker put it, "Indoors is fine, but outdoors is mine." And they went on to prove it. Although the Tigers did not win many firsts in the tough relay circuit competition, they did score many personal bests. At Texas Page took first and Udo won at Kansas Page again dominated the field at Drake while the shuttle- hurdle relay team scored the Tigers only relay win.

Steve Moore, shot put; Nat Page, high jump; Peppie Whitaker, long jump; Scott Clark, 800-meters and Dele Udo, 400-meters, brought home the gold.

It's also the way the sophomore plans to make the 1980 Olympics. Page leaped on the Missouri scene from Evanston, Ill, last year to thrill Tiger track fans and frustrate his opponents. During his first year, he broke all the Tiger records, tying for third in the NCAA outdoor meet with a personal best of 72174". At the 1977 indoor national championship, he broke the record established by his idol, Dwight Stones. He and Texas-El Pasots Greg Joy established the NCAA mark at 7'3W'. Early in the year, the 6'4", 185 pounder set his goal for 1977 at 7'47, and at the Big Eight outdoor championship, he made his word good. Page left the field behind at 7'3" and decided to go for it all at 7'4" to become the best high jumper in the conference's history. But, the versatile Page did not stop there. He finished fourth in the triple jump, an event he hadntt competed in since his junior year in high school, after taking only one jump. Both events were occuring simultaneously so Page decided to concentrate on the high jump, hoping his 49"2172" leap in the triple would score Missouri some points. Page won both ends of the Relay circuit, the Texas opener with a 7'3" effort and the concluding Drake at 7'3". He finished second at Kansas. But his glories were not limited to the high jump. He hurdled for the Tigers at Drake tovgive Missouri its only relay win on the circuit in the shuttle-hurdle relay. Teammates Dan Lavitt, Randy Hicks and Godwin Obasogie shared the victory. Page chose Missouri based on his friendship with football star Joe Stewart. The two were high school teammates and friends. And Page has not regretted his decision. l'l've wondered if I made the right choice coming to Missouri," he said. llI came out of high school with five other fine jumpers, and when I look at them now, well, those guys are not doing so well." Page has meant a lot to Missouri beyond point-scoring ability. I'He has given this squad a great deal of leadership, not only by deed, but also by his enthusiasmf Coach Bob Teel said. "He's genuinely interested in seeing his teammates do well. Unfortunately, this is not true with all athletes, but with Nat it is." ,. , 3.3.; ,3 5:11,, Gt. B. . . EoZ mmEof. 223 :8 Hot scoring squad falls just short of the top Leaning up against the scoreboard behind the left field fence 'at Missouri's Simmons Field is the ladder of Alonzo Harris. Harris, the Tiger scorekeeper for the past two seasons, got a good workout on that ladder in 1977. Because, better than anything else, the '77 edition of Missouri baseball could score runs. The Tigers crossed the plate 365 times during the season, an average of 7.3 times per game. The team batting average was .311, and eight regulars averaged over .297. Mizzou had a few guys who could throw the ball, too. Rob Pietroburgo went 8-2, giving him 16 career victories and the No. 2 spot on the Missouri career win list. Tom Bloemke, a iate-blooming junior college transfer, led the staff with a 9-4 record, while Jeff Cornell and Steve Shockey chipped in 5-1 and 7-1 marks respectively. Shockey also uncorked the individual highlight of the season with a 5-0 no-hit win over St. Louis University. And the Tigers could play defense. For most of the season the team was ranked among the top 15 in the nation defensively. All these ingredients combined for a 36-15 record, the second highest victory total in the school's rich baseball history. Only the 46 wins for 68 games in 1976 was better. But the big prize, a second consecutive Big Eight conference ChamPionship, eluded Coach Gene McArtor's crew in 1977. After winning the conference's East Division with a 9-1 record, 153 Dan White 154 the Tigers lost out to West champion Oklahoma in the Big Eight Championship Tournament. Two decisive losses to the Sooners in the doubIe-elimination tourney, which also included division runners-up Kansas and Kansas State, many have cost the Tigers an at-large bid in the NCAA regional tournaments as well. One of 13 teams to be considered for eight at-Iarge openings around the nation, the Tigers landed on the reject list. But it was not a lost year by any means. In fact, McArtor said he thought the 1977 team was the best in his four years as Missouri's head coach - even better than the Big Eight championship squad in 1976. "We had a good record with a tough schedule," McArtor said. "We had just about everybody back from last year, and our new people did a good job." Those "new people" McArtor referred to were Bloemke and freshmen Rich Hereth and Tim Laudner. Hereth, who stepped in at catcher for departed all-American Mark Thiel, hit .298 and turned in a solid job behind the plate. Laudner, who took over the regular right field job midway through the season, was a sudden star with a .328 average and 33 runs batted in. His play at the conference tournament landed him a spot on the all-tournament team, along with Bloemke and centerfielder Al Hightower. Another relative newcomer, sophomore Rob Lauer, surfaced and lived up to the name of designated hitter by hitting .415 for the season. Lauer, who didn't play in a single games as a freshman and was not on McArtor's traveling squad as late as April, became one of the toughest outs around once he got into the lineup. Alan Berner 156 41K , But the old hands pulled more than their weight. For the second straight year the infield e with juniors Mike Lally at third base and Greg Cypret at shortstop, Curt Brown at first base and senior John Kruse at second e sparked the club both at bat and in the field. Kruse led the regulars with a .349 average, and saved his only college home run for just the right time. In the second inning of an important divisional doubleheader with Nebraska, Kruse, who was on the bench with a leg injury, came to the plate with two outs in the last of the seventh to hit a grand slam that gave the Tigers a 10-8 victory. By season's end Kruse was the Missouri career leader in runs scored and bases on balls. Brown played in every game, batted .331 with 38 RBI's and made only five errors in 410 chances in the field. Lally led'the team in home runs with seven and knocked in 43 runs. And Cypret, well, Cy just continued his mass revision of the Tiger record book. Putting in a bid for his third straight all-American title, Cypret batted .342, set a Missouri record of 20 doubles, and led the team in runs t521, at bats 0871, hits t64l, RBI t46l, total bases 991 and started every game. While serving as co-captain with Kruse, Cypret took over the school's career lead in five categories tat bats, hits, doubles, RBI, and total bases1 to go with his single season records in the same departments. There were other stars, too. Jim Leavitt, the 1976 Big Eight batting champ, didn't defend his title but still hit to the tune of .331. Despite a broken jaw that put Jim English out of play for 10 games, the young second baseman had 15 stolen bases for his short sophomore season. And when the pressure was on, Pietroburgo was usually flawless. From April 8 to May 20 he pitched 33 innings and allowed only three earned runs. A bombing by Oklahoma in the tournament shot his earned run average up to 3.97 but it did little to tarnish his reputation as a pressure pitcher. 1977 was a season of many miles for the Tigers. The team opened the season with a 10-game spring trip to Louisiana, and had barely unpacked the baggage when it was time to leave for the Riverside Intercollegiate Baseball Tournament in California two weeks later. Playing against seven of the top teams from throughout the nation, Missouri came in third. Still, the lack of a conference title and an NCAA bid left a bittersweet taste in the mouths of the Tigers. But their exciting brand of baseball brought renewed interest in the sport from local fans. More than a few bleacher bums journeyed to the ball park to root for the home team, and even more to razz the opponents. And while they were there, they got to see Alonzo wear out his ladder. 157 Photos by Dave Roloff 158 Golf The Tiger golfers were styling when they took their clubs to Drake county. It was a promising omen for a not-so-promising season. Coach AI Chandler's team came out of their seasonal slump to claim third-place out of 18 teams at the Drake Relays Invitational, a surprising accomplishment for a team that lacked the low scores of their captain, Fred Copeland. Sophomore Pete Godwin filled in for Copeland and finished 7th individually in the meet. The '77 season was the last one for coach Chandler and senior player Copeland. But next year still looks promising with the return of Godwin, who played in the number two spot on the team this year. 159 Individual efforts spark young tennis team Even without the other half of a dynamic brother duo, Brian Mitchell on the courts for Missouri wasn't half bad. Playing No. 1 singles for the Tigers, Mitchell boasted a 19-3 singles mark for the '77 season. in doubles competition, the team of Mitchell and Scott Sims were top contenders in the Big Eight. "College tennis is tougher than people think," said Missouri coach Bill Price. "In a lot of ways it's tougher than pro tennis." And for Missouri, the competition in the conference didn't ease up all season. While their record this season didn't match last year's 19-6 finish, the Tigers turned in good performances. But they lacked the consistency needed for a strong conference showing, and suffered at the hands of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Next year will see the return of all but Sims, who graduated with the best doubles record for Missouri at 10-2. A veteran squad of the top five singles players, including Mitchell, Jon Powell, Rob Walters, and Robert Crowson, as well as up-and-coming freshman Reb Bortz, will bolster next year's squad. e .n m n a D V: b s o t o h P 161 , 5.5.5... . 55.5 ..

Mizzou set countless club and individual records on the way to the team's finest season ever. They scored 264 goals during the year to up their record to 30-10-1. Tiger Captain Steve McElroy led the team in scoring, compiling 32 goals and 41 assists for 73 points. Goaltender Dan Nee established himself as the team's number one netminder and recorded the only two shutouts in the club's history. Coach Neil McFarlane was pleased with the young team's performance. The skating Tigers outnumbered all other University sports in attendance, with the exception of football and basketball. Undoubtedly, intercollegiate hockey has found a home in Columbia. 165 Photos by Dan White National recognition at a young age Very few three- -year- -olds gain national sports recognition in a nation swamped with athletic superstars. And the Challenge IS even greater when the three- --year o-Id is female. But with Joann Rutherford doing the teaching, Missourits three-year-old basketball program advanced to the AIAW National Championships after upsetting nationalIy-ranked William Penn College 85-70, and Central Missouri State 71-69, at the AIAW Region Six Large College Basketball Tournament. The Tigers were originally seeded last in the tournament, but the sharpshooting of junior co-captain Nancy Rutter with 29 points sent shock waves through top-seeded William Penn. In the semi-final game against CMSU, four Missouri women were in double figures as the Tigers struggled to overcome a draw, 69-69, with 27 seconds on the clock. Freshman Julie Maxey provided the miracle with a 10-foot jumper to seal CMSU'S fate as the Tigersladvanced to the finals against Kansas State. With a national tournament berth in hand, Missouri faced rival K-State and fell hard, 74-50. But the season was far from over for the young Tigers. Coach Rutherford's team headed for the national tournament in Minnesota with a 27-10 season record. Once again they were seeded near the bottom of the 16 team tourney. They finished in the top 12. In the opener against a tough Southern Connecticut team, Missouri was defeated 80-66. Their next encounter in the double elimination tournament was against host Minnesota. The Tigers embarrassed their opponent 60-39, with Rutter pouring in 21 points. The final curtain fell when the Tigers faced Baylor. Despite efforts by Rutter Q61 and Sharon Farrah U71, Mizzou came up on the short end, 85-74. Rutter was the leading scorer and rebounder for the Tigers in the tournament with 65 points and 38 rebounds, followed by Farrah with 38 tournament points. For the season record books, Missouri placed second in the MAIAW, second in Region Six, and among the top twelve women's basketball teams in the nation. Not bad for a three-year-old. 168 Photos by Dan White 169 Missouri women place first in state Every afternoon was spent practicing on the courts, and nearly every weekend was spent there as well. But it all seemed worthwhile to the Missouri women's tennis team when they captured first place at the MAIAW State Championships. Under the direction of coach Bill Price and his assistant, Dru Duggins, the Tigers pulled some surprising upsets to win the title by one point over SMSU. Freshman Nancy Caldwell, playing N0. 1 singles for the Tigers, racked up a winning record in the 77 season, and teamed up with Patsy Donelson in doubles competition to add more wins to her credit. The duo combined their talents to lead the Tigers in doubles competition, and were seeded high in most tournaments. 174 Four swimmers are IIMiss All-Americansii "Davies Babies," as the women swimmers like to call themseIVes, went to Providence, Rhode Island for the AIAW National Swimming Championships. They came home as aII- Americans. The 200- yard freestyle relay team of Lynne Austin, Pam Wright, Jerri Hubsch and Patty AndreWs finished 12th nationally with a Big Eight and School record time of 1 3.9 95. The ranking automatically qualifies them for next year' 5 national competition. Andrews, a Missouri tri- -captairI and four-ev'ent Big Eight record- holder, placed 18th in the 50-yard butterfly, just two places short of the aII- America title . It was the end of a very successful tank Season.

And she didn't stop. Bedell started the year with the cross country squad, finishing 2nd at MAIAW State Championships and qualifying for AIAW Nationals, where she finished 102nd with the fastest time of her career. Although her cross country season was over, Bedell wasn't finished running for Missouri. She went on to represent the Tigers in both indoor and outdoor competition, and was one of seven Missouri women to qualify for AIAW National Track and Field Championships tin the 5000 meters and the two-mile relayt. Another bright spot in coach Alexis Jarrett's season was the PErformance of Doris Piekielniak, AIAW State Champion in the new pentathalon.

The 64 thousand dollar question 4 Which representative of the Missouri athletic department last achieved a number one national ranking? No, it wasn't Dan Devine's 1960 football team that lost its chance at a national championship in their final regular season game with Kansas. The Missouri basketball team has never been too popular with NCAA selection committees, let alone wire poll balloters. John "Hii' Simmons piloted the Tiger baseball team to unprecedented inational championshipi heights in 1954. You're getting warm. You're really a Mizzou sports buff if you remembered the Missouri indoor distance medley relay team that won the national championship three years ago. But you're still off by a month or so. Later in 1974, the man who publicized those teams received some recognition of his own. Bill Callahanl Missouri's Sports Information Director for nearly 30 years, was honored by CoSlDA College Sports Information Director of Americai for his unparalleled news dispensing efforts. While Callahan is the "Prince of Publicity," he seldom channels his talents toward self-glorification. Why, the transplanted Newport, Rhode Islander is so modest, he almost didn't show up to accept the Arch Ward Memorial Award his contemporaries voted him in 1974. "We honored him at a banquet in Houston," Arizona Sports Information Director Frank Soltys recalled. "We kept the award 201 a secret and for some reason or another he went home after our business was taken care of the day before he was honored. "We had to call him at home. At about three in the morningl woke him up and asked what the hell he was doing at home. He flew in the next day to accept the award. I doubt if he says i anything about it, though." Callahan is more apt to chatter , about a Missouri golf team whose record is 0-30 than of himself l r-r-vv -vrmr if he had shot in the low 60's at Pebble Beach. It was Callahan's work on the greens as a lad that, ironically, 1 prompted his brash Irish nature to prevail over his modest l inclinations on at least one occasion. ? While at the Oklahoma home of sports writer Bob Hurt, Callahan claimed that his caddying experience in the wilds of New England had taught him the difference between mushrooms and toadstools. "I realized it could be poisonous, but before I could say anything, he eats it. He says he knows what heis doing so I don't think about it," said Hurt, one of the many friends Callahan has acquired since arriving at Missouri in quest of a degree in journalism. "We got to eat and come home three hours later and he got sick," continued Hurt. "He just flat spent the whole night in my bathroom a which is now labeled the Bill Callahan Memorial Bathroomii Hurt called a friend with some degree of medical knowledge, who declared that the consumption of poisonous mushrooms could lead to heart stoppage. Callahan was then transported to the intensive care unit of a local hospital where his stomach was pumped. "I had a picture in my bathroom of some Oklahoma State Cheerleaders presenting a plate of mushrooms to Callahan at a game later that week," Hurt said through a smile. lf Callahan's adventures were incorporated in a biography, they might rival Tolstoy's War and Peace in length. But his autobiography would probably approach the dimensions of a comic book. "Callahan wrote the book on sports information work as far as yl'm concerned," Don Bryant, Nebraska's SID, claimed. The 57-year-old's job encompasses furnishing the media information, predominantly through releases. "Reporters from larger papers rewrite our releases, all they want is fact," he explained to a reporter. "But the release is designed primarily for the small paper. They run the release as is, so it must be written decently." Which Callahan does, relying on his newspaper experience to provide the needed information. "He would have made a great newspaper man," said Hurt, who has known Callahan for about 25 years. Bob Broeg, sports editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, paid tribute to Callahan's talents. "I think so highly of the CoSlDA Hall of Fame member, that even though it might not be considered good journalism or the best newspapering, he's MY .. $553 l 202 Photos by Dan White correspondent for the Post-Dispatch at Colunbia." Callahan has funneled off much of his responsibility to student assistants and his most outspoken admirer, secretary Marggy Hanington, in recent years. Earlier this year, John Heisler, a graduate of the University's journalism school became Callahan's first fulltime assistant. Heisler handles the basketball end of publicity, a chore for which Callahan admittedly has no great affection. Ironically, Callahan was recommended for the job back in 1948 by basketball coach Sparky Stalcup. "Spark and I shared one of those little offices in Brewer Field House until we moved to new quarters in 1950," Callahan remembered. "It was a real cubbyhole. We had to get along well." As in the case of most public relation figures, Callahan has gotten along well with everyone, although there have been some rougher moments. "I guess the only really bad moment came my first year. We went to play Navy's football team," Callahan said. "It turned out to be one of our best victories, 35-14. "But the day before the game, President Truman invites us to the White House. While we were getting set up for a picture, the President said to the squad, Boys, I may be the Commander in Chief, but first of all I'm a Missourian. I hope you beat Navy.' "When Don ihead coach Fauroti read, that, I thought he was going to go through the roof. He really was mad. He figured we had broken a confidence, that it would embarass the President. "But do you know something? Mr. Truman didn't back off an inch. People always knew where he stood." Six presidents, four football coaches, a new press box and 27 years later, Callahan still approaches his job the same way. With professional enthusiasm. "When I started the athletes called me Bill," he said. "Now it's Mr. Callahan 98 per cent of the time. I don't mind Bill; in fact, I like it. It makes me think my hair is black, and my age is 28." Hair tends to grey quickly when you're mentally active in athletics, but Callahan never displays his loyalties during gametime. "You live and die with your team," Bryant said. llBut Bill's great when they win and great when they lose." "After Nebraska beat Missouri 62-0 in 1972, his heart was probably breaking, but he took it like a pro and said he was sorry they didn't give us a better game. "He's all for integrity." Another thing Callahan is all for is poker. Many of the veteran sports writers and SlD's iparticularly Hurt and Bryantl know better than to play against him. liHeis an expert at that too,f' Bryant said of Missouri's ace PR man. "Hell, he's been All-America for the last 30 years." In poker as well as sports information directing. Text by Cal Fussman 203 'wmuan. : : mm 9K?

Each year, members are initiated into five honorary organizations, Mortar Board, ODK, LSV, Mystical Seven, and QEBH. All of the organizations are based in some way on leadership. Mortar Board, one of 167 national chapters, was formed to "functionally contribute to humanity in college andlor commu- nity life" and as of November, 1975 initiated male members. Elumuu.....,. ODK, the national leadership honorary, was formed in the tradi- tion and leadership of George Washington and Robert E. Lee and to achieve in every area. LSV members are chosen on their leadership, academic success, and activities. Mystical Seven publicly recognizes the finest seniors who have shown out- standing, unselfish leadership. QEBH, founded by Royall Hill Switzler, honors individuals who have given extraordinary ser- vuce. 245 Katherine Hershey, I Second Row Sharon Carson, Judith Gibbs First Row -- Mary French, Kristen Livergood, Vickie Pasley; Libba Jackson; Not pictured - James Banning, Sandra Gautt 246 ODK.
