Blindness "just an
inconvenience" for this
Few 50-year-olds have the determination to try to get a
college degree. 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. "Now what would any guy say . . .

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,
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
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.
Photos by David Walters
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.
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
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
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

to get themselves a job." says Bazin, "placement is jL
Photos by David Walters
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.

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.
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
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
"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.

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
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.

A funny thing happened on the
way to the Orange Bowl.
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
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
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.

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."

Harriers look ahead to 77
It promised to be a good season for Missouri's cross country
team. But then things started going wrong.
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.
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
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
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

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.

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

Setting, then achieving, one goal at a time is the way Missouri
high jumper Nat Page operates. 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
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.

Leaning up against the scoreboard behind the left field fence

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
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,
the Tigers lost out to West champion Oklahoma in the Big Eight
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
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

April, became one of the toughest outs around once he got into
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

batting champ, didn't defend his title but still hit to the tune of
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

The announcer screams and the print reams '
For the player who deals with the puck.
While never a word is written or heard
For the subs who sit and wish them good luck.
But there on the bench, a dozen hearts wrench,
When a new man goes into the fray.
The subs never go in, but they take it and grin,
For them it's all work and no play.
When the vacant seats stare, you'll find them all there,
In the thick of each practice day's storm.
They are battered and bruised, for the drills they are used,
For the game, they just keep the bench warm.
So take off your hat to the players who sat
Through each and every Saturday game.
And remember that they had a part in the play,
That to others brought glory and fame.

Mizzou Hockey Club: at home
They called them the skating Tigers,and, in only their second
season of intercollegiate play, they proved themselves by posting
a record-breaking season.
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

The secretive service man
in sports information
Imagine if everyone in attendance at Missouri's opening
football game next season pitched in a buck for a trivia contest.
The 64 thousand dollar question 4 Which representative of the
Missouri athletic department last achieved a number one
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
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
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
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
"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
"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
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
"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
"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
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
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
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
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
"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
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.

For more than half a century, Tap Day ceremonies have been
held on Francis Quadrangle. 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.
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-

"May the golden-eyed Savitar come hither
Shining forth he rises from the lap of the dawn,
Praised by singers; He, my god, Savitar,
Stepped forth and never missed his place.
He steps forth, the splendor of the sky,
the wide-seen, far-shining, the shining wanderer."
- From the Hindoo Rig Veda, vii, 63
Savitar . . . "the sun-god of the Rig-Veda, a
collection of the praises and hymns to the oldest
and most sacred gods of the East. Savitar . . . the
black and gold deity. Age cannot touch him and
nothing can withstand his will."
