" The education of a man is nore, said the sage, " than the teach i nc ' preachings of wiser mferL Jl is more than the opportunity to experience life and " b£ ■ill i " ?i! the freedom to ex ' ss it. It is the choice (of mafi) to blind his own will and see a new vision beyond the mist of his own mind. " 1 ' Mm iw vJi StS: ) ' r " V4 people come and many people continued the wise old man, " but Ihe people who stay and build who lernal. It is the man with faith who V , -T-.V submits and gives of himsei live forever. And it is the student with hope and love who is able to sense .... a new Vision. ' w S ' ■-,.- .-.-J ' mi JiW ■ BS Bgn The beginning of places, things, and people in the autumn of 1968 insinuated more than an average year of education; for early that fall. Southern California College responded to the need of its people. It was a year a different class of people were preparing to graduate from a Christian liberal arts college and with educated minds and dedicated hearts move into a com- munity which cried for sympathy, understanding, and love. The senior class of 1969 was more than a static and dormant people as they culminated a collegiate career with a year fashioned by new perspectives of Christian living and by something of a new vision. It was a year that was initiated by a fervor in all avenues of expansion and expression; a year that seemed to wane under the routine of academics or die by the wills of selfishness in the midst of activity, and it was a year in which Christ was able to triumph over personalities and circumstances and present to a hungry world food well-seasoned with thought and well-prepared with prayer. It was a year in which the eyes of SCC were opened to something beyond itself. The people returned to find the others with whom they had experienced much and were to share much more. They gave of their wit and beauty and offered their laughter to those they would call friends forever. They gave all they could and received abundantly from their charity. They placed themselves alone to think and learn, and still, in all their silence and solitude, the sounds of warmth sang true. The year was to become a year in which they would sense the realm of God, of others, and of self. 19 The thrills and expectations of a promising year were temporarily dimmed by a shade of lackluster business, as registration became an expedient ingredient for organized education. Various contracts, forms, and schedules had to be completed, signed and filed all without the aid of IBM computers. The ordeal of choos- ing and changing classes and chapel seats; followed by faculty and financial interviews, and and textbook buying and bartering exasperated both student and staff. Plans were prepared by the administration to mitigate the divers complications, and relief rose from the ranks of the populace. The frustrations from waiting in lines, failing to secure a certain class, and missing dinner were superseded by foresight. Such promises proved to be the precursor of propitious progress and Southern California College took another step towards institutional and organizational stature. 21 Mtioonwo When the Freshman enrolls into his chosen institution of higher learning, he is plagued with apprehension complexes, and fears of his inc±)ility to adapt to college life. The Associated Student Body Student Council of Southern California College thereby recognizing the instability of its new enrollment has established " Welcome Week " , a week of indoctrination and introduction into the sundry phases of collegiate activity and decorum. Thursday, September 12, the class of 1972 st arted this process of testing and orientation, concluded by the controversial and soul -stirring presentation of " Becket " . This film was followed by an old- fashioned ice-cream social which offered the new Freshmen an opportunity to develop fresh, new relationships and delve into refreshments. As the week progressed, the newcomers were escorted to Knott ' s Berry Farm, and the Hollywood Wax Museum; then around Newport Beach and Balboa Harbor in a highlighted boat cruise. ENTER 22 The ASB Student Council also sponsored the first SCC Dating Game which gave two Freshman girls the opportunity to choose an ideal mate from a selected group of eligible and appealing upperclassmen. Sheryl Murdock with winner Ben Fraser, and Ginger Krickbaum attached to her choice Dennis Lindsay, were treated to a romantic evening at Melodyland where they enjoyed the music of Rod McKuen in concert. The Welcome Week picnic culminated the gala beginning which united a new people with the spirit and purpose of SCC. Involvement had encompassed the indi- vidual and time soon ushered him into meaningful memories. OWBOAT BALBOA 23 The jury, a motley assortment of " ex-cons " and crowd-pleasers, was one of the District Attorney ' s major assets. With unbiased jury support, Coach Robert Reid, the D. A. of the day, subtly accused one comely newcomer of trying to be a " big cheese on campus. " She was one of the few given a guilty verdict and righteously chastised by having to wear Limburger Cheese on a chain for the remainder of the day. Two other " worms " refused to honor the sacred tradition of " Button-Froshing " and were condemned to digest a cup of raw egg. The executioner aptly hum- bled the brazen bravado of another freshman by feeding him a meal of flower, and applied punitive measures of a mudpack to one more defiant freshman for splashing mud on upperclass- women. Such trials were typical as the neophyte Freshmen were inaugurated into the collegiate social life by a concerned group of upperclassmen, who joined their wits, talents, and resources to form the esteemed judicial body of SCC, Kangaroo Court. J ' ? . r. ' : % To the excitement of the Fresh and the de- light of all others, each year, begin- ning with the Welcome Week picnic, the Court convenes and remains in session for a week. The Freshmen acquiese a week of sub- servience, " Button- Froshing, " " air-raids, " and cafeteria festivities in their behalf. There has never been found a sub- stitute for the spine-tingling murmur: " Here come de judge! " Justice had prevailed and the Freshmen quickly learned how to adapt to the superfluous laws for the remain- der of the Welcome Week. It was neither the beginning nor the end that produced in us the quality of being. It was not the institution that grew and produced, but the individual who walked forth living. The life appeared still to the others, but the life was beyond the blindness of the masses. The life was in the couple who idled in illusive isolation, who expressed their eternal love, and lived in expectant hope. It was embedded in the determined spirit of the aspiring cheer- leader, who anticipated a year in which she might play a part, and in the soul of a quiet man, who rested his body, searched his heart and girded his strength to complete his day. In the serenity of the evening, the life was reflected from the flickering flashes of a girl absorbed with the poetry of her own solitude. 26 m 27 The life endured as the people rested and were strengthened in the shadows of dieir seclusion. Students took this opportunity of peace to adjust and evaluate themselves in the light of this new factor of education. Life stopped for but a brief interim of time, but in that interlude a few people perceived a fresh glimpse of a personal and eternal new vision. 28 Against the promises of peace and prosperity threatened a storm of ac- ademic, social, and spirit- ual struggles. The realistic rigors and trials of a col- lege education were evi- denced by signs of student frustration and failure. Work weighed heavily on the wavering minds and wills. For one student, the pres- sures built, and for a moment, as conflict and confusion weakened his will- power and confidence, he stared blandly off into a faded vision. Fatigue and a sense of futility enveloped another man in his attempts for acceptable achievement. Others labored selflessly through long lapses of lassitude to present social recreation for their fellow students. The stress of academics became anguish for those who lucubrated in- to the early hours of the morning for term papers and finals. Sleep seemed innate in many who struggled to maintain an open and tractable mind, but suc- cumbed to the somnolence before a desk late at night or in a morning class. All the vitality of the beginning waned and circumstances manipulated men into mechanical and meaningless motions. The new vision al- most died several times, but there remained a spark in some unknown individuals, who were able to pray and smile. Somewhere in the midst of frustration, defeat, apathy, and ourselves, there echoed an epithet of faith and hope from the past that affirmed: " Today is the best day of my life. " We looked up in optimism and yet cognizant of all the pain and anguish, we walked past the valleys of despair and gloom, knowing that God used our struggles to make us stronger. The student existed as the inspirational impetus that was able to provide for his own social release. The leisure of watching the Detroit Tigers win the World Series on a table in the dining commons was a product of several students ' indigenous ingenuity. A student engrossed in a " laugh-in " on the Viking Room T.V. was able to escape from the drudgery of his studies and relax. New excitement was generated by members of a spontaneous musical group, the " Soul Experience " , as they waded through waters of contemporary expression. This psychological relief from the individual and lonely struggles was nothing more than friendship. 30 People communicated and appreciated each other and some inscrutable feeling of Christian love and fellowship was defined on the practical playing fields of life. A natural warmth satisfied hungry hearts and people found one another. S.C.C. produced friends and in doing so offered her students the opportunity for a genuine and eternal release of love. 31 4 iii - With the anticipated confirmation of the San Diego Charger ' s contract to construct two foot- ball fields on campus for summer training purposes, football intramurals were initiated in a frenzied atmosphere of enthusiasm, excitement, and nerves. After minor disagreements of rules and regulations had been settled, the Junior class moved into the arena of physical contact and competition. The Class of 1970 dominated the scene with a strong running game and team balance of a ferocious line, two flashy ends, a quick backfield and quarterback Terry Mullikin, (66), who came from oblivion in Redwood City to ranking as one of the top college signal callers. Threats from a rising Sophomore team were met in the climatic second game in which a determined squad of Sophomores were pitted against the tenacious Junior team. This conflict resulted in a frustrating 6-6 tie. But the Juniors were able to demolish and humble future con- frontations and ended an anti-climatic campaign as the undisputed victors. Members from the various class squads were chosen to an All -Star Team which competed in a friendly rivalry among Cal Baptist, LABC, and LIFE. This year, the SCC All-Stars, behind the organization of Athletic Commissioner, Paul Crissman, took a third place by losing to Cal Baptist 19-13, and whipping LABC in the consolation game 28-6. With the advent of proposed football fields, ardent football fans have grasped a new hope for possible official intercollegiate participation in the future . 32 Each college that is to deserve recognition as a qualified academic institution must project some particular scholastic image. An educational complex must attempt to be unique, appealing, or outstanding in a specific phase or purpose of its existence. Southern California College has attained unequaled stature among liberal arts colleges with the involvement of its faculty with the student. The faculty endeavored to preserve a vision of inducing the maturing student into the life and culture of modern society with strong Christian foundation and perspectives. Whether it was a teaching in Anthropology or a lecture in Church Administration, the professor was concerned; concerned that the student learn rather than memorize. He was concerned that the student, who with the simple axioms and truths from his class, would use the available facilities and literary -resources to expand his personal knowledge through research and study. But the most valuable learning experience of the SCC student did not come from the erudite emanations of the enlightened educators, but from the exemplary Christian character that these men displayed in their daily living. The dedication and determination of the Vanguard faculty established new visions of academic quality and spiritual leadership. ms ' M With the intellectual excellence and Christiaij love and service of its preceptors, SCC was able to produce something more than an average student. From the bonds of academic and theological restrictions, a candid and authentic student, with an inquiring mind and open heart, was freed to see the sin and sufferings of his needy world. Through this new freedom and love, the modern Christian scholar was given a key to his own new vision. 35 •f % u t y ., f ' ' Beyond a growing social awareness, athletic extension and academic projection, there lay a quiet new vision of spiritual relevance. A dialogue developed between the student and his religious teachers. A new generation sought modern perspectives for practical application of the Christian ideal of love and charity. The college community cried for a church that could meet the needs of contemporary man and his society. Students wearied of talk and abortive preparations for revival. Students yearned for genuine love and a taste of new wine. They desired something that would activate and actualize their faith. They had grown tired of the milk. The foundations of a total spiritual involvement were laid by faculty members. Three types of love, AGAPE, EROS, and PHI LI A, were translated by one educator from the chapel lectern, and students responded, transmitting the inspiration from one hour of that one day into the total span of the year. Another faculty leader revealed that all things worked together for good to them that love God and another Christian axiom was tested and confirmed in the witness of those who truly heard. In small devotional groups, various teachers were able to inspire the collegiate youth to actualize their Christian testimony. These Christian men fed the maturing students meat, allowing them to take Christ to the world and not from the world to a little box they had built and would have to defend. 36 The acknowledgement of verses like I John 4:19 humbled the student to submit his life totally to the will of God. Knowing that " we love Him because He first loved us " enabled those who sought His Will to love the unlovely and unloved. A new vision beyond all men was bom because one Man loved so much as to die for all of us who hate, lie, cheat or destroy the good and pure of this life. Only the love and grace of Christ could compose a message that was so pertinent and exigent to the college campus and community. The light of spiritual relevance was illuminated in an active and viable involvement with the simple and beautiful Christian ideal, Love. 37 From the tintiimabulation of an early alarm to the soft pillow, tempting a nodding head from nocturnal devotions to drift off into ethereal sleep, the life of a student is being continously shaped by his daily relationship to his college home, the dormitory. Whether it be the seven-story Men ' s complex housing facilities or the sentimental older Quadrangle around the memorial fish pond for the women, the student is given a spot in which to sleep, to study, to reflect, and to live. Dorm life provides opportunity for the personal, social, and spiritual maturation of the student. The student chooses his own sched- tile for introspective privacy or convivial fellowship. He decides when to escape from the pressures of a collegiate society or when to involve himself in the affairs, problems and joys of a roommate or friends. In the course of dorm contact, the student is introduced to the ceremonial customs of dorm life in " Lifting five guys " or discovering a secret heart sister. The student resident is exposed to the routine activities of ordering pizza, playing with the intercom, or wasting many hours of precious sleep while lost in idle discussion relating the important trivia of the day. He receives a new vision in living with people and becoming alive to see the needs and sufferings of a lonelier neighbor. He learns lessons of patience, friendship, and love and thereby supplements his academic education with the education of ex- perience with people. $ .f 40 From the deep hollows of an empty gastric cavity emanates an adamant growl driving a carnal being to the crowded, bustling premises of the famous unnamed Dining Commons, one block down from the O. Cope Budge Library. The avaricious students stampede to the feeding grounds in herds and packs or discover them- selves being led singly to their table by an unconscious, natural desire for High Continental vittles. As each individual chooses his wet tray and hardware, he tries inconspicuously to locate familiar faces in the throngs of gourmets with which to share his bread and words. Then his attention is diverted by a distinct aroma which beckons his nose to recognize a taco, a hamburger, or (with imagination) cavier and steak. Waiting and watching to move past the doughnuts, pies, and other tantalizing goodies in an abortive attempt of weight-watching, the carbohydrate connoisseurs greet Norm and the smil- ing servers. The student grabs the one last glass and running to the milk machine discovers a dry cow. After finally filling his glass and picking two pads of butter, he sits at a vacant seat, prays and allows one bite before the " amen. " Then he is lost in the changing patterns of mechanical digestion and babbling conversation as the meal be- comes the routine cuisine quelling the growl and satisfying the shrinking stomach. 41 Running against psychological pressures and physical poundings, a pack of Vanguard harriers pushed themselves to total self- sacrifice as they strove for victory in cross- country competition. Behind the undefeated league runner, Rich Phillips, S.C.C. runners finished a close league second to California Baptist College. S.C.C. leatherlungs ran to a good 26-16 season record, upsetting Chapman and many other larger colleges for the first time in S.C.C. cross-country history. While Coach Reid was instilling the minds of the team with determination and a desire for victory, experience was transforming the excess flab into well -toned muscle fibers. Gaining con- fidence and skill, the Vanguard runners were motivated to win 15 of their last 17 meets, including 2 wins over league champion CBC and victories over LaVerne College, Nevada Southern, Pasadena College, and with a bare loss to U.C. San Diego. As they finished their final race, the S.C.C. cross country creepers collapsed and panted a prayer of thanksgiving!! 2 2 1 6 3 2 1 1 UCI LABC Cal Baptist Rio Hondo LABC OCC UCI Cal Baptist Cal State Fullerton OCC 44 ■ .•,J ' " - mn With an experienced and enthusiastic crop of shifty-footed Freshmen and Tibetian exchange students, S.C.C. soccer rose dramatically in impact for its first year as an inter- collegiate sport. Ken Backman and Rolland Baker guided this fresh squad through victories over University of California at Irvine, Orange Coast College, and L.A.B.C. Coached by Dr. Dennis McNutt, with valuable assistance from Bill Ashcroft of the U.C.I, athletic department, the Vanguard sportsmen rolled to a fantastic 5 wins-5 losses first for the season. One of the many trained at Monte Vista High School, Ken Backman demonstrated his ability as the most valuable offensive threat by scoring 18 goals. Indian soccer star, Sonam Rinchen, proved to be a quick and formidable goalie by his inexhaust- ible hustle. This first 1968-1969 soccer year was a harbinger for brighter hopes for future inter- collegiate soccer denom- ination. 45 46 As late October was falling, the campus swarmed with activity. Freshmen and Juniors were serving the community in the IX Haig National Open, and the Seniors were enjoying one last weekend before their sneak. But one debuting class was frantically preparing to step into the hosting spot of the college social scene. The Sophomore class were uniting in a state of chaos as they culminated their work for the 1968 Harvest Party. " The Greatest Show on Earth " had been publicized better than any other college event and the enthusiasm begat by this group of " wise-fools " created a contagious desire to jump on the band wagon. The Sophomore class toiled in spite of fatigue to transform a dim gym into the bright, exciting and gay playing grounds under the Big Top. The class officers found an extra spark in Warren Owens as he took charge of the lighting, sound and electrical wizardry. The booths were constructed; the program written; and with the last few finishing touches being added by a meticulous Sophomore, the first ticket booth opened and costumed spectators trickled into the carnival arena. As stentorian strains of a Calliope permeated the lively atmosphere, the crowd amused themselves with the sideshow booths. People pushed their way slowly and gravely through the haunted house and cemetery or attempted to dunk a wet clown with a sober- ing bucket of water. Finally, after meandering from one concession stand to another, the crowd settled in the grandstand tiers and awaited the show. 47 " ' - J " Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth. " Without further fanfare, the small, one-ring circus sponta- neously generated into action and evolved into a night of showmanship and fun. Lippy and Lucy, two foolish Sophomore clowns, stuinbled on stage and slapsticked their way out of the ring. While Bobo the Bear and Hud the Lion ravished their respective trainers, another animal from Zuver ' s Muscle Gym waited to do his thing with weights. More exciting and tense moments were yet to follow when Mully the Human Cannonball was to be shot from the big gun. After a momen- tous and nerve-racking build-up, the shot fizzled and Mully dropped out ten seconds later. The greatest and most dramatic act of the evening came near the end of the first half, as the circus prepared for the daredevil tightrope feat. With nervous fans cringing, the lights were extinguished, the drums began a tumultuous roll, and the spotlight centered on the wire. Suddenly from the top of the canopy, hundreds of feet in the air, the Fearless Fly- ing Flea came fluttering over the heads of his followers to arrive safely in the sawdust center of attraction to an unrestrained frenzy of ovation and acclamation. The second half, after the awarding of the costume prizes, brought on more experienced entertainment as the Jesters evoked laughter and guffaws from the friendly audience . With the conclusion of many " Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles " and assorted pantomine skits, the circus crowd slowly dispersed, well pleased with the evening and the " Greatest Show on Earth " of the Sophomore class. 49 One of the chief aspects of the SCC social life would have to be the banquet. Providing the faculty with an opportunity to see their students attractively or formally attired according to th student handbook dress code, and offering the students the privilege to satiate themselves with supper of succulent steaks, these feasts range from the opening Welcome Week Banquet to the grand, formal Junior-Senior Banquet. These annual festivals of food appear irregularly at the holiday intervals throughout the year.

But whether the entertainment was an up and moving musical recitation by our own Mrs. Budge or a performance by the illustrious New Hope Singers, the cuisine remained the most important ingredient for the satisfaction of the stomach. The prime event of the evening remained the indulgence into the tasty table treats of turkey and other tantalizing tidbits. With a surfeit of seconds setting in, every blossoming banquet was concluded by couples disappearing into the night to find some quaint restaurant at which to eat. 52 It was the Christmas season. There was no snow, only chilly winter winds interspersed with intermittent appearances of a warm California sun. The Hong Kong flu was prevalent about the country and the dormitories. Term papers were due and examinations were adminis- tered. In the midst of these physical diseases and academic disasters appeared a social panacea, the CHRISTMAS BANQUET. Studies were ignored and health was restored for a few hours of pleasure and relaxation. Thursday night, DECEMBER 19, the Women ' s Dormitory was beseiged with sangvine suitors requesting the honor of their dates ' presence. Red roses and white carnations had been ordered days in advance and were now exchanged and set at the appropriate sites for ostentation and embellishment. The Christmas couples passed through the rustic gate and began the short, free- way drive to the DISNEYLAND HOTEL. As they arrived at the Disneyland hotel lobby, they were escorted into the fashionable EMBASSY ROOM by two familiar turtle- necked doormen. The guests were greeted by Steve Romines and Linda Stetz, the A.S.B. Activity Directors, and ushered into the festive atmosphere of the banquet room. Sitting down at one of the holiday tables, the couples awaited an evening of sophisticated cuisine and the professional entertainment of the BOB SHEPHERD CHORALE. 53 After the couples had been seated, host Steve Romines opened the Banquet with a cordial welcome and a Merry Christmas to all. Following an invocation by John Snider, 1967-68 A.S.B. President, dinner was served. From the old fashioned Swiss steak to the deepdish apple pie, the food satisfactorily filled the Vanguard connoisseurs, and left them bulging and content. As the last morsels of dessert were being scraped, the instrumental section of tlie BOB SHEPHARD CHOFIALE moved to their appointed positions to warmup. After a slight delay, the choral group took their places before the audience and sang a package of Christmas favorites including " The Little Drummer Boy " and a special and entertaining arrangement of " Silent Night " , featuring a solo violinist. The performers were given a short intermission during which President Budge and Dean Cawston were presented with gifts from the student body. The traditional Delta Kappa ceremony tapped seniors Mel Ming and Kathy Plunkett, and Dean Cawston revealed four prospective nuptials. In concluding the evening ' s entertainment, the Shephard Chorale offered a secular packet beginning with " It ' s a Big Wide Wonderful World " and including " In Them Old Cotton Fields Back Home " , " By the Time I Get to Phoenix " , " Born Free " and many others. They finally closed the night ' s performance with a packet of sacred music arranged for a contemporary audience with such songs as " A Reason to Be " , " Tlie Lord is My Shepherd " , and the final stirring selection of " Behold He Cometh " . The banquet had progressed into the late hours of the night and as the fantasy of Disneyland faded, the couples made out their own way back to the dorms for one last day of classes before Christmas vacation. 55 Vi:: rj;:..;;3j BASKETBALL 968 - 69 J ' ' ;.v ' ?r sl s ACS ■««! ,- - Coach Robert Reid, Athletic Director, a man of determina- tion and humor.

Long on experience but short on height, " Reid ' s Runts " (averaging 6 ' 0 " with shoes on) opened their 30 game season with an easy win over the Orange Coast Letter- men ' s Club 92-66. Freshman Jerry Rinker set the pattern of many games to come by swishing 20 points, and controlling rebounds on both boards. Favored to lose by 30 points, the Vanguards promptly lost their third straight to Cal Western by 38 points, 50-88.

But Jodie Murray was fouled and sank two free throws to put the game at 80-77. Then with 19 seconds left Greg Jacobs, all star forward, broke up a pass and some how put Murray back on the free throw line with a one and one. He sank the first and pandemonium broke loose and as the second shot swished the nets even the administration cheered, as the Vanguards established supremacy on.

Jody Murray came back from his 34 point effort against Tech to bucket 25 against the Lancers, but a shot with seconds left, proved fatal for the Vanguards and victorious for the Lancers. For the first time in the four-year tour- nament sec failed to win the Championship and this year didn ' t even make the top finish as skyscrapping L.A. Baptist ripped the tiny team 111-87 with 6 ' 10 " Mike Basarich getting a tournament record high of 49 points. Rinker and Murray made the All -Tourney Second Team. r ijj m [XII laiL i ■■ P i wK y jy JrlJ ' llVjJ H ■ ' l l W Sm, v iS ' ' ' fc! M V fl 53R,-«f ' , - .% • ' ' It ' J ' Jumping from the frying pan into the fire the fearless five journeyed to Newhall to face L.A.B.C. in their first G.S.A.A. encounter and lost a good game 98-85. With the hustle and finesse of " Flip " Marocco, part of SCC Italian Power, stealing all types of balls from the L.A.B.C. big boys in an imrelenting pressing defense, the Vanguard vipers trailed only by 3 points with 5 minutes to go, but the front line of 6 ' 10 " , 6 ' 9 " , and _ ' % " proved to be too much for us. Six Vanguards scored between 12 17 points for the best balance of the year but 80 points between the " giants " cancelled out all of the good works. " Oh Life College we love thee, yes we love thee " we sang on the way to another " sure win " but found ourselves tied 93-all at the end of the regulation game. Smooth moves by reckless Rick Shults shot the Vanguards ahead in overtime and we won 108-102. Rick finished with another career high of 35 points. Our annual trip to Northern California could be represented as a 33% success, as we took one out of three on the road. The first night in rainy, cold Livermore, in a gym with no seats, scoreboard or showers, we polished off the Northern Califomia Pentecostal Bible College 128-60 with all 13 SCC players scoring. Stanislaus State whipped us the following night 116-84 dispite five men in double figures. On to Fresno for the Tuesday night game and even with Jumping Jimmy Payne collecting 24 points and 25 rebounds we fell 104-67. Back home during the semester break for a " breather " we fell to the Republic of China ' s Basketball Team 98-74. Again height was the factor plus our units were plumb out of gas from the long and hard road trip. Laveme College, with nationally ranked scoring leader Davey Jones, came to Costa Mesa and ran over, thru and around a gallant Vanguard five for a 112-96 victory. Six Vanguards scored in double figures led by Rinker ' s 24 but Jones and Barber accounted for 62 Laveme points. Our very dear friends, Victor Valley College, back for their seventh try at beating a Vanguard team, came, saw, but did not conquer as seven Vanguards hit in the double figure column for a bright 113-93 victory. Off to LaMirada in hopes of another upset journeyed the " darling dwarfs " of Costa Mesa only to be blown out of the Biola gym by a score of 78-100. Homecoming was a complete success right up until the big game. The University of Califomia from San Diego didn ' t seem to understand that WE were supposed to win and thrashed us before a packed gym of alumni and fans 107-73. Rinker ' s 22 points was tops for both teams but UCSD got the most satisfaction by winning the game. Still very much alive for the G. S. A. A. Conference title we traveled to Riverside to play in the new $300, 000 Cal Baptist gym and once again " upset " the taller Lancers. With five Vanguards in double figures we raced to a 42-40 halftime lead and then kept the lead for a fine 81 -76 win. Stanislaus State dropped in from Turlock and proved their first win over us was no mistake by beating us without mercy 112-81. Rinker hit 24 but it didn ' t stop the " running giants " from the north country. Our buddies and " cousins " from Los Angeles (Life College) came to town to try and force us into another overtime game . . . and it Iftoked like they might do it! We led by as much as 10 points in the first half only to see it melt away; and Life tied us at the half 43-43. After a halftime in the locker-room of 25 words or less the Vanguards charged out of the shower confines and immediately set about to make ammends for their poor first -half showing. When the smog lifted, the score read SCC-127, Life 73. Forward Phil Marocco and Center Ronn Nipper continously picked reboimds from the de- fensive boards and while casually tossing them downcourt for the lively fast breads, ship- wrecked the Vikings by a tormenting game of keep away. The Vanguards did everything but eat popcorn the second half as they scored a record-tying 84 points behind Rick Shults ' 32 points and Jerry Rinkers 26. Six Vanguards again were in double figures. With the G. S. A. A. Basketball Title on the line, the Los Angeles Baptist CoUege team invaded our gym and within the first 20 minutes wrapped up the Conference tide. As even the usually consistent hot-shooting guard, Lynn Taylor was vmable to connect, the low percentage of the entire team (18% the first half) cost us the game and the 6 ' 5 " average. Mustangs won their second straight Conference Title and remaining undefeated for two years. Mentally and physically down from the LABC defeat Cal Tech took us on our own floor and won their first game ever over an SCC Basketball Team 83-74 after we had led at the half 42-31. Fresno Pacific CoUege came to town for our final game fo the year and handed us our 19th defeat against 11 wins. Teamwork, a miracle in past years, became the Foundation and recipe for the victories of the small, scrappy Vanguards. Whether it was Jerry Rinker, Dan AUbritton, Lynn Taylor, Ron Nipper, Rick Shults, Jodie Murray or Phil Marocco, one of the spectacular assists al- ways started the spectators stomping in the stands. But even with all the depth experienced and hustle, the 1969 Vanguards could not compensate for their lack of height. And as the sun slowly set in the basketball gym, there remained the radiant hopes for next year, when all three guards and three forwards would be returning to the locker rooms and new challeng- es, hopefully with a bouncing 7 foot center. - tr?

Included in the 15 win 10 loss season were 7 games in which the team scored 90 or more points and 2 games where over 100 points were scored. The record for most points in a game was broken with a 125-56 rout of L,A. Baptist. The J. V. ' s featured a fast break offense which resulted in some very remarkable scoring performances by our team, with 6 or 7 men reaching double figures in nearly every game. For the second year in a row, the sec J.V. ' s were conference co-champions with a 5-1 record. The only loss came in a game with Cal Baptist after an earlier victory over the J.V. Lancers. The J.V. team demonstrated a desire and dedication which led them through a good year. In a final flashing finish, the baby Vanguards easily flipped a frustrated Cal Baptist team to decisively dominate the J.V. league. Behind substitute coach, Lynn Taylor, the J.V. established a new vision of future basketball superiority as they earned notable recognition as undisputed victors. ir - % ' i«J, » A class of Freshman artists and iiandymen assiduously applying decor to the bland gymnasium abet- ted a night of creative frustration as the various classes worried about unpatented prized floats. The Home- coming theme, " Peace Through Understanding " was never attained; peace came only through the termi- nation of Homecoming ' 69. Bright floats and royalty began the memorable day in a widely-publicized parade that surprised perplexed house- wives and bored children with a colorful interruption of their daily ironing and morning cartoons. The First Place Junior creation and other more controversial floats enjoyed their moinent of recognition but soon faded from memory and rains. The day culminated in an attack of enthusiasm and cockeyed optimism as alumni, thought translated, made their way home for reunion and recognition. In the midst of the basketball game against University of California, San Diego, the lights were dimmed " exactly nine minutes " for tlie homecoming coronation. To the strains of " And We Were Lovers, " from the " Sand Pebbles, " Jody Rubiy, the 1968 Homecoming Queen, graciously relinquished her title and reign to the new queen, Pat Popoff. As the evening turned darker with night, the Queen and her lovely court reigned over the defeat and victory to the conclusion of the Homecoming activities and a solemn " Alma Mater. " Tlie day had come home to the hearts of the true Vanguards and a vision of unity stood above the faithful old and new warriors, hailing the blue and the gold. k 1 . _. 1 1 Iite«».- JlLUlllU i J { i k VL k Ik 1 " 0 u mM « 1 111 B ' f ' HTTT B Hk s o p H O M O R E E L L I E S A N D E R S O N 1 PAT POPOFF • • }- . .

The ' 69 Valentine Banquet brought together couples to hear one of the finest assem- blage of Vanguard voices ever combined at SCC. The superb sprinkling of " Little Arrows " and other outstanding, original arrangements were directed by the composer, Darrel Gardner, with the contemporary accompaniment of the Mark Davidson trio. The evening was love, even in its surprising and gay personification, Cupid, as he pranced about shooting his little arrows and spreading confetti about the convivial atmosphere.

J IT J i 4 ..«| A " m The process of education at a co-educational liberal arts college is interrupted from its academic sphere by many varied, unique; and endearing experiences, the most common being that of interaction between the sexes. From the beginning each is cognizant of each other ' s presence, and an age of learning and conflict begins. ■.4 80 A boy stumbles onto the rustic college campus. He discovers a book and he eagerly anticipates his educa- tion. He opens the book and reads. He is content, oblivious of his sur- roundings. He is happy and then- -a girl enrolls and strolls near him. The two encounter in an invisible path from eye to eye. There is a smile, and soon a response. The moment passes and his eyes return to the book. But his mind has been destroyed; his fate sealed. She walks on, straighter, less sure of herself, excited. The smiles and visual contact remain intact in the two hoping hearts and the year progresses. Friendships develop. Dialogue culminates an age of flirting, teasing, and dating. Words pass from heart to heart. Moments are shared and memories are placed beside hopes in the hollows of their hearts. There is a realization of ultimate purpose and an acceptance of the responsibility of love. There is the maturation of one new vision by two new people. The frivolity of the beginning has been transformed into the solemn eternity of a common destiny. Love is known. ,|f% Love, expressed in a valentine message by a professor in chiapel. Love, professed with simplicity and sincerity by a couple apart from their surroundings. Love. The giving, stripped of its hypocrisy and superficiality, becomes vibrant living. Lives are shared and in these moments of Christian communion, visions of profound love are formulated in hearts. Sight is restored to the blind boy and he becomes a man with purpose. The girl metamorphises into a woman, capable of emanating genuine sympathy and concern. Together they merge and become one in spirit. 82 A smile, a squeeze of a hand and the consummation is portrayed in two sharing prayer. The apathy dies and dreams mount in expectancy of a future together. The spark ignites into a fire and the love burns in an eternal flame. To two people, lost in the discovery of each other, there remains little more than the culminating quiet words: " I love you. " Then all is still and beautiful and forever. ' tBc;. !f ' - sills Iks iIImIIIIIIP ' ' ' ' ' ' in m m 83 84 Below the elbows of Crissman and beyond the tempers and trials of Christian athletes, there exists the epitome of rugged warfare and tense competition in the participation of intramural basketball. Every now and then, once or twice a week, a multitude of basket- ball rejects, flunkies, has-beens and super- stars dropped their books and bounced over to the floors of the gym, in an effort to exert themselves so they could sleep well later that night. The Juniors appeared the top prospect in the first round, shooting down Freshman and Sophomore teams and barely losing to the invitational faculty team. But confronted by Paul Crissman and company, the Juniors were forced to relinquish the limelight to a crew of senior stars. With the advent of the second round, a surplus of Frosh ability was unwillingly and unwittingly elevated from a first team JV ' s to intramurals. An undefined and tenacious Sophomore team, lacking depth, and height, displayed a tremendous show of hustle, seriously challenging every opponent. As the faculty, staff and friends team belonged to a different league, the final standings seemed dependent upon a final playoff between the old old seniors and the more popular junior team team. As the final buzzer of the last game rang, both participants and spectators had enjoyed the opportunity to forget academics and find release from frustration. 85 Rorm Nipper - A.S.B. President Alfred Cawston - Advisor L ' " 00 im to Dave Hall - Chief Justice In a year of conflict on campuses across our nation, we are forced to examine again why our student govern- ment exists. Are we to lead revolts and strikes? When change is needed, are we and do we have the right to demand it? Realizing the need for some change, we must not simply remain apathetic to the problems of our campus and world. Our methods may not be those of other agitators but we certainly must communicate to our administra- tion some of the changes that seem necessary on our campus. This year many goals have been accomplished. We can see change for the better in many areas of our campus life. We hope that the year 1968-1969 will be remembered as the beginning of a new outlook for our campus. Not an outlook opposed to all the vital values of our heritage but rather one that in- cludes these and also relates and in- volves our lives in our contemporary world.

With an implied theme of involvement as the impetus, students looked into the possi- bilities of building and ever strengthening the institution of Southern California College. Progress was expedient. The student was determined that sec should not succumb to political stagnancy or social sterility. The student, cognizant of the ills of the world ' s systems and society, accepted the challenge to im- prove himself and his environ- ment. Sigma Eta Presidents, Bill Harlan and Jim Crandall, promoted the influence and relevance of Christian teachers for a secular world. Other service organizations, such as the Varsity Club and the honorary Delta Kappa attempted to foster improvement in or- ganizational stature and person- al concern. Other individuals contin- uously strove to better the school by giving of themselves to play the organ in chapel or by insuring that their duty was well done. Their dependable responsibility was only reward- ed by a personal sense of accomplishment. Service be- came an honorable profession, allowing people to discover an outlet for assistance and charity. The student served, and in giving, became an integral part of Southern Cal- ifornia College. j;bJ ' ' jac 3Sessas)gSMl- V : " ' - " ' ' ' - ' ■ " " ■ ' ■ ■ ■ rr. v X VANGUARDS 1 ' .

Each with a purpose, all fulfilling a ministry, the choral organiza- tion of the Music Department is con- cluded with its selected summer touring groups. During the summer of 1968 and the following academic year, three dedicated and talented groups traveled around the Western United States repre- senting sec with song and sermon. Acclaimed for their professional sound and their spiritual emphasis, the college presented California and Texas with " The Accents " , a self-contained body of vocalists, pianists, arrangers, and drummer. Behind the novel leader- ship of Eddie Chavez, the Accents, including Rusty Peavy, Bob Cull, Jim Patton and Larry Combs replacing senior Ken Prettyman, culminated 1969 with the production of " The Accents -- New Dimensions in Sacred Sound, " a record capturing the close harmony and soul -felt rhythms of both their traditional and contemporary styles. Fulfilling a ministry through song, the Regents, consisting of Lyle Countryman, Larry Coit±)s, and accompanist Eddie Samuel, toured Northern California and Oregon to represent Southern California College and to present Jesus Christ as a living, contemporary reality. Incorporating quality voices and vibrant personalities, SCC ' s third representative group, the Reflections traveled about the Southern United States transmitting the message of salvation through the blending voices of Lynette Cornwall, Pat Conley and Ellie Sanderson. 97 This year ' s MAP cabinet made many decisions that brought change and marked a turning point in the history of MAP. It is believed that the new direction taken is producing a more relevant missions program for this campus. Probably the most significant step taken this year was to replace individual national prayer groups with mission emphasis services on Thursday evenings. Though taken with some reservation we feel this change to be a meaningful and necessary step. The effect of this year ' s program has placed a new emphasis on prayer in the life of the Christian student. It has also removed the responsibility of prayer for missions from the group and placed it on the individual. How do I come before Almighty God? Do I please Him as a chum With the tinsel of my tongue? With a thoughtless whispered prayer Before a meal made with care? With ambiguous idioms, At the end of the day ' s humdrum? Or by sulking away the sorrow of the day As an afterthought that the night has brought? Ben Fraser The student searched. For himself and for his purpose. Relevance in religion was his cry. Concern for a con- temporary application was his need. Prayer, worship and charity were his methods. Christ was his answer. Student involvement was the theme for relevance. For something to be pertinent, one must first be a part and so the student wanted a viable and active place in pulpit leadership. There was no room for a God of the status quo. The student was concerned that his faith be dynamic, not static; living, not dormant. He believed the Christian life should be more than a system of dogmas, a creed or a pledge. He believed in Jesus Christ as a divine act of Grace and not just a sterile truth. He believed in interaction between the Godhead and man. He believed in Christian unity, despite the diver- sity of denominations. He believed in love. And in this belief, he acted. But it was not the works of the student that saved him, nor anything honorable nor good about him, for he was totally selfish and evil. His spirit was natural; his desires carnal. He was not a spiritual entity. He was a sinner, desperate and hopeless. But there was a Power, above his world, a Power that transcended into his situation and offered him boundless love, hope, and salvation. It was the power and charity of Jesus Christ who offered the student a choice between himself or a genuine, human encounter with God. The student accepted by faith, by trusting and leaning on the arms of Christ. God became an objective reality and the boy was instilled with purpose and meaning. The outworking of God ' s grace and the student ' s faith was always love, not idealistic, but practical. His spiritual life became not a matter of verbal proclamation or traditional mores, but a positive application of love producing the Fruit of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance was relevance. 101 x x hF I if i ' ' ■n- ' ii m w t l - " v y The year, 1969, Nothing less, nothing more Than a kaleidoscope of one time, A transitory stage In the history of SCC.

Now you may rest assured that your classes have been convincing!— and, believe us, we appreciate your scholarship. We feel honored to have studied under one whose education is so rich and whose thinking so keen. We appreciate the fact that you expected so much of us academically, and that you treated every class session so seriously. But for all that, Dr. Fee, we will have a hard time remembering you as a scholar. You have been to us too many things dearer far. We shall all doubtless remember you as our Cohort in Boisterous Collegiate Enthusiasm - a gangly, arm-waving supporter- superb of SCC 1 1 basketball ' s triumphs and tragedies. We shall remember you as our Friend indeed - the prof who could be located on campus by the crowd of students gathered around him, exchanging banter on one occasion, discussing current issues on another, both with equal zest. We shall remember you as our Brother in Christ one that cared who we were and where we were going — the teacher who wept with us in class as together we heard God ' s voice speaking from the pages of the New Testament. We shall remember you as one whose life changed ours. And that is why we dedicate this 1969 CENTURION to you. Dr. Gordon Fee. The mysteries lay in the setting. Not even the eccentric personalities of its occupants could have produced such a motley thought pattern. A fantasyland, where imaginations were exagger- ated and vocal cords enjoyed the freedom of laughter, existed through the physical senses and social recognition. People came to trade words, to find a missing piece, to give and receive love. People left by the same door with a different walk. Some people stayed; it seemed like forever . -( { . ■ Mil se M 3 9 m, t; ! 4-?

Through the excitement of a national election and an Apollo moon flight, above the conflict of campus diversity of opinion, and in the midst of the struggles of personal maturation, this one room remained open for critical analysis, dialogue, expression and prayer. Rising beyond its time and place in the history of SCC, the Centurion office proudly produced its own original offspring to counteract itself and the world; it produced the seeds of a new vision. AG,?jri « « fV i I H s V IS EDUCATION THE PRESERVATION OF THE WOFOX ? Education, tlie thoughts derived from the beginning to the present, never ceasing, but aimlessly presented by man him- self. Education itself is notsomuch an idea or a subject matter as it is a theme to which college and the basic subject matters are relevant. It is a problem whicli we die sttidents carry discussions into and across great many subject matters such as liberal arts, logic, psychology, medicine, theology-, ethics, poUtics, and economics. A problem which draws into our focus many ideas-- virtue and trutli, knowledge and opinion, art and science, desire, will, sense, memory, mind, habit, change and progress, family and state, man, nature, and God. Combine these elements and tlie matter of eternity comes into existance if that be possible. The notion of eternity like that of infinity has two meanings. One meaning of eternity we conceive by denying time itself and witli it, change or mutability. Tlie other sense of eternity may refer to something positive, yet both seem to be formulated by die human mind in a negative way. We grasp one meaning of eternity by saying that there is no beginning or end to times process. Is our beginning coming to an end? Anyone who stops learning is old, whether this happens at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning, not only remains young but becomes increasingly valuable. We the Class of 69, desiring a Christian college have graduated with tlie knowledge tliat cannot be surpassed by tlie greatest intellect in the eyes of the natural. The wisdom that we have obtained is from the Creator above. It is pure, peace- able, gentle, and is easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and hypocracy. More than this we have learned to respect the Creator. As simple as the ABC ' s, without the knowledge of God, education is as useleK as a lead duck and will exist in vain to tlie materialistic minded fool. Figuring out our creator is not our desire nor necessarily under- standing Him but simple faith has given our class the ability to see tlie possibility in the impossible. Our beginning is not coming to an end. It is just the Beginn ing. With this Christian education the desire to teach others of man ' s simple faith in an infinite Being is the only preservation of the world. " Go ye tlierefore and teach all nations " (Matt. 25:19), This truly is our desire. Most of mens problems cannot be solved by tlie mentality of the educated brain- -God desires man to be involved spirit- ually instead of by the flesh. Each graduate, whether continuing his education or becoming a fulltime minister for Christ, must both preserve the world for eternity. The Class of 69 is intensely interested in the futre. We expect to spend most of our lives there. We plan to preserve the world. Education is a machine. Place Cluristian before education and you receive the power to run the macliine. Our machine will operate as though we live forever, but being prepared though we should die today. Southern California College has placed the motive that each graduate of 69 might say, " I am only one, but I am one. I can ' t do everything but I can do something.

Upon recalling our activities one can see that our class has much potential: the Welcome Week activities, the fellowship after the Christmas banquet, the decoration of the gym for homecoming, the winning of second place in the float competition, sponsorship of " meet-the speaker " sessions in the Coat-Of-Arms Room, and an innovative program of class repre- sentation the " Frosh Senate. " With this imaginative potential we can achieve great things! But true greatness includes far more than excelling in class competition. We see truly great things as those that will last eternally - such as spreading the " good news " about Christ. Certainly the desire and ability to excel that has been shone by us in these past activities will assist us as we follow Christ ' s com- mandment, " Ye shall be witnesses unto Me. " We wonder what places the various members of our class will take in the world and church of tomorrow. But we hope that whichever places are taken will be representative of the promise shown by us today. Then we will be worthy to be called " Vanguards " and in the final analysis-- Christians.

Like a massive kaleidoscope they reflect an endless variety of everchanging patterns, but are com- posed of the same substance. Nature itself-- all that is earthy-- offers nothing essentially new. One may, by way of chal- leng e point to some new phenomenon or some new gain, but all to no enduring purpose. It has been identified before in its basic nature. It may seem new because former things are soon buried in oblivion. All nature is created and the novelties emerge " after their kind. " " One generation passeth away, and another cometh; but the earth abideth forever. " But man, created in the image and likeness of God, is a creation conscious of purpose and ultimate end. And, as such, he yearns for more than the mere flux of things; he longs for eternal actuality and being. Therefore, the lasting and meaningful vision of man must include eternal verities derived from God Himself through His communicable attributes of truth, love, and justice. In conse- quence, only in this new dimension is found God ' s provision in His own Son, Jesus Christ, Who is " the way, the truth, and the life. " The Southern California College, as a Christian liberal arts college, has been designed to assist its students in attaining this vision composed of " Christ-centered relevance. " O.

Vivid description coupled with concise, correct form create literary works to be dissected, analyzed, and appreciated. Students read. Students write. Students speak- -but ultimately stu- dents think. The ever expanding freshman English sections marks expansion and progress in the department. Additional speech and composition classes were required to facilitate the increased demand. Besides the complete study in world literature, the department is anticipating the addition of drama. The journalistic success of the department is evidenced by the publica- tions of more than fifty student authors. Language. The tool of expression, universal in application. To insure ex- posure to foreign modes, a language is now required of every graduate. Along with additional requirements, the Human- ities Department views its future progres- sively. Anticipating the development of a drama department, a corrective speech class, and instruction in modern English techniques for prospective teachers, the department consistently maintains a vision toward expansion. Through composition one acquires the skills to write. Through reading one comprehends what has been written. And through writing one records what he has learned and experienced. Whether it is a study of form, rules, voice projection, style, or culture, the educational experi- ences of language study is valuable because literature is a mirror, a record of life. We learn it- -to live it. Joseph Dieter, M.A, Albert L. Hoy, Ph.D. " . 1 » L ' ' 2- - .i;r-6S - .: ' -. v,- P -PIT Dudley Q. Boyd, B.A., M.A, Candidate Shirley Felt, M.A. Mark Bell, M.A, MUSIC Performance. Around the country, through- out the state, and in our chapel. Receiving potential talent from churches and high schools, it is the responsibility of our choral and band directors to create contemporary, original, and traditional sounds from the variety of voices and styles enrolled in his group. The traveling trios and quartets as well as the two choirs are responsible for the renowned reputation of SCC ' s Music Department. It isn ' t easy. Quality is achieved only after tedious repetition and rehearsal of demands made by a director to achieve perfection. Opportunity for potential talent. Voice, piano, and organ lessons are offered by accomplished musicians to enhance the quality of each individual ' s talent. The material is the student. The accomplishment is the perform- ance. While applied music is enjoyed by many, the student majoring in music finds theory, history courses, and technical mastery of music an additional challenge to his individual perform- ance.

Enthused about their subjects, and experi- mental in their approach, professors and students unite to discover and relate laboratory experimentation to their environment. The subjects are varied, the equipment modern, and the professors qualified. The division major of Natural Sciences includes areas of (1) Life Science, (2) Physical Science, and (3) Mathematics. The Science program is designed to satisfy the basic science requirements of pre -dental, pre- medical and pre-nursing, and provide a founda- tion for the student intending to continue with graduate work in his field. The liberal arts student broadens his technical background through exposure of required science studies. Paul wrote the Romans that no man can plead innocent of God ' s sovereignty. The creation is proof for our faith, and scientific investigation is the means of attaining minute data in man ' s search to comprehend God ' s complex creation. To search, hypothesize, experiment, and discover become the exciting elements in delving into God ' s organized universe. A.

Fifty years of didactic instruction, Holy Spirit inspiration, and practical interpretation. The division of religion offers a variety ' of approaches to the foundation of Christianity- - the Bible. Through exegetical study, principles of sound interpretation, utilization of archeolog- ical and literary backgrounds, SCC has infiltrated our mission fields and military sei ' vices with more students than any other Assembly of God college. The student body not only contacts superior instruction from the faculty members, but benefits from outstanding personnel in individual areas from pastors with Ph.D. ' s and chaplains. Supplementary specialists are integral elements of the ever expanding department of religion. Whether through the concentration of Bible or religious education, Bible majors receive intense study in preparation for the ministry or graduate programs in anticipation of ministries in teaching, or entering allied professions in such fields as education, social work, and youth evangelism. This department influences each student ' s approach to Christianity, uniting liberal arts studies with the vital discovery of Christian relevance in education. All make contact- -all are influenced.

Enlightening. A valuable experience. After observing two grade levels, the prospective teacher faces a choice --to pursue or alter his course. The majority attack education with the excitement of a challenge. Through with psych courses, curriculum studies, and student teaching, the graduates face a benevolent world. Never a stagnant department, educators envision special training centers, video tape equipment, and constant emphasis of progres- sive educational procedures to insure top quality teachers.
