Prologue v Prologue Waiting in the admissions office to meet a college dean, I couldn’t stop feeling like a high school kid. It was my visit to Muhlenberg in the spring, senior year. I remember my first long stare at the glistening library dome and the even longer stare at the glazing white C.A. They let me sit in on a class; I think it was freshman history. There were no desks, just chairs with arms on them. No clock either. My high school classes lasted 40 minutes. This one was an hour and a half, and the guy used the map an awful lot. Where’s Latvia? You’re kidding me. Is this The College Life? Of course not. Meeting two roommates and a green room at orien- tation changed my mind. Do college students really square dance? We hav VI Ciarla football team. That’s good. But no pets, right? Right. I never saw so many Podiums and Postulates in one week of high school. I think I’ll go to the library tonight. Hey, I went to the libes last night. Did you say my throat? The registrar’s office on First Floor Ettinger. Thanks. Mr. Dedekind, this course they call ‘birds’ isn’t for me. Did you know the lab was at 7 o’clock in the morning? It didn’t say that in the catalogue. Someone told me that Probability and Statistics is a good course . . . Football games are like frat parties in the afternoon. There are some pretty Good Sports here. Too bad soccer and field hockey don’t get the same support. The basketball team plays in the Christmas tournament this year. Good luck, guys. I’ll be home for the holidays. The longer I’m here, the more I realize that the college life goes far Beyond the Books. Our choir sounded magnificent at the Candlelight Service. For weeks my roommate went to “Anything Goes” practice every night. The intramural teams have games twice a week and the campus is overrun with student council campaign posters. When do they all study? I don’t know if I came to Muhlenberg expecting it to be perfect, but These Times seem to be troubled. We almost had a unionized college faculty, which means higher tuitions. We’ll have higher tuitions no matter what. The honor code was too good to be true, and Connie Kunda’s back. There are some very un-traditional issues stirring at the heart of this traditional college. It reminds me of “Victor’s Lament” trespassing on General Pete’s lawn. If I wrote down all the things that went on under the old general’s nose this year, it would make an interesting book. Imagine, “An Informal History Of Muhlenberg College, 1978-79” . . .

Right: John Spagnola holds up the wall for Nancy Springett. that Muhlenberg campus was without electricity for the students’ first overnight stay in the dorms. By can- dlelight, resident advisors assured freshmen that blackouts are not routine problems. Monday’s classes came fast, introducing the initial two weeks of light studying and heavy partying, the first few Saturday nights of the semester producing record highs in fraternity atten- dance. Although classes started in August, the notion of summer vacation was quick- ly forgotten. Shoes became necessary, bathing suits were sent home, and the first bout with mid-terms for the semester approached as the tans slowly faded. — Helen Boren ilies, and then choosing the best of identical beds, dress- ers, and desks. Once settled, typical freshmen cautiously eyed the belongings of their roommates, using clues like the number of Jackson 5 al- bums, stuffed animals, sports equipment, thesau- ruses, Gucci accessories, or Macho cologne to stereo- type the lifestyles with which they would have to live. While the freshmen got acquainted in advising group parties and meetings, the upperclassmen resorted to water fights, hall meet- ings, and panty raids, pick- ing up where they left off last spring. Traditionally, a square dance is scheduled on that first Friday night. This year, the Allentown fair drained so much power BEWARE: While trudging up the stairs, loaded down with suitcases, food, stereos, and other necessities, the last thing on an incoming fresh- man’s or upperclassman’s mind was academics. Com- ing back to Muhlenberg in September, oh, rather Au- gust, meant searching for familiar faces, remembering names, checking mailboxes for su mmer mail, or discov- ering faces and mailboxes for the first time. For a freshman, moving in included meeting new roommates and their fam- FIRST STEP IS A DOOZY Quacking their way to victory, Karen Briggs and her group search for a sister team making similar noises.

The College Life: social versus academic 5 THE STACKS- Sooner or later we all end up in this ominous place. Below: The Backgammon trend has grown from impromptu games to lull Hedged tournaments. Seniors Mike Haynes and Bob Weiner are caught in the mania. The library, with its spa- ceous study rooms, alcoves, and hiding places is a per- fect environment in which to observe various study be- haviors. The infamous ‘throat’, a familiar fixture in the libes, earned his cut- throat reputation and title from practices such as re- serving a permanent table in the stacks, carrying more than two books for one evening into the library, and studying on a Saturday afternoon instead of attend- ing the football or basket- ball game. A more severe case of academics can be observed in the student who isolates himself on the eighth floor or the Muhlenberg Room. The third type student who patronizes the library has little in common with the throat. He is the social- minded frequenter of the main floor. On this floor the desks are arranged so that mild studying is accom- plished if one sits facing the wall and nothing but a sore neck is gained if facing the entrance. Either way, it is usually assured that in CAN CHANGE SUDDENLY ‘throat’ an unfair one. For many, a life’s career can de- pend on subject’s grade. Life is not visible in its true light from one perspec- tive; a formula for both an academic and social life, if worked out, should be hand- ed to freshmen along with the survival kit and the pig- book. — Risa Waldmen and Jeanne Mandel GRADES spending a night on the first floor in the library there is little threat of getting much read, and the odds are it will be an enjoyable social out- ing. The dilemma of where and how much to study is one that concerns the entire student population. Dorm study is distracting and vis- iting the library leads to a bad reputation. The more pressing half of the dilemma is how much time can safely be devoted to studies with- out losing the aspect of edu- cation that comes from so- cial interaction. Parental and grade pres- sure, and competition is pre- professional, especially pre- medical, programs are reali- ties which can ' t be ignored and perhaps make the label 6 Ciarla Following a decisive victory over Swarthmore, alumni and students accompa- nied an exuberant football team to the Center for the Arts for a variety of hot breads and drink as part of the Homecoming festivities. of mothers and fathers to the campus for a game in which the Mules defeated Johns Hopkins 56-20. A re- ception followed at the President’s home. The Union was empty Saturday night while places like the Aspen Inn, Widow Brown’s and King George’s were booked. After dinner, many parents stayed to be enter- tained by a variety show and a college quiz bowl competi- tion sponsored by Program Board. Epsy day, Saturday, Oc- tober 24, is the traditional day on which Lutheran high school students “take over” the campus and the students in residence either go home for the weekend or lock themselves in their rooms. After a football game and a dance held for the pleasure of Epsy Day participants, the serenity and normality which the following Sunday morning had to offer was welcomed — Todd Morrow — Fran Rosensweet quips with her father on Parents Weekend.

Several thousand Muh- ■i lenberg College alumni and their families, along with students, faculty, and ad- ministrators, watched John Sartori, a junior business administration major, re- ceive the Sidney G. Weikert Sophomore Athlete of the Year Award for the 1977- ROYAL 1978 academic year. Numerous festivities were held for the alumni includ- ing: breakfast with the foot- ball team, departmental open houses, tailgate pic- nics, President Morey’s re- ception at the Center of the Arts, an Alumni concert, Muhlenberg Theatre Asso- ciation’s presentation of “Our Town,” and, for a nightcap, craps and black- jack on Casino Night in Brown Hall.

Below: ‘See no evil; hear Halloween party in the Union. Right: Who knows what no evil; speak no evil.’ Halloween, the time of year for ghouls and goblins, parties and pranks was fully taken advantage of at Muh- lenberg. College students found that for a night they did not have to act as such, and could return to their childhood days dressed like crayons, M M’s, bowling balls (accompanied by pins), cone heads, and dou- ble-stuffed oreo’s. It was the perfect excuse to party on a Tuesday night (for those who needed an excuse). Most of the campus was oc- cupied by spooky activity. Paties took place at Walz, Benfer and SPE, where the bongmen took first prize in their contest for a highly original costume. The night before Hallow- een the television rooms on campus were alive with ac- tivity due to the airing of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. In a nostal- gic atmosphere, popcorn was passed around while Li- nus anxiously awaited the Great Pumpkin and Charlie Brown received only rocks as halloween treats. Students who were not satisfied with standing in Dr. John Morey’s doorway only once at freshman orien- tation, grabbed their bags and headed for Leh Street to trick-or-treat. On the way, neighborhood houses were visited and ample munchy supplies for the next few weeks were collect- ed. the most unusual things, like, dressed as a gorilla, walk through the library, or, dressed as a hooker, ap- proach that guy you ' ve been wanting to date. For an evening one can trade per- sonalities with anything or anybody, and return to nor- mal the next morning, for the most part. — Christopher Schulze The popularity of hallow- een, besides its use as an ex- cuse to bag the books, might be explained by the oppor- tunity it provides to disguise or dress up. Behind a mask, an ordinary person can do PHANTOMS PARTY 10 Ciarla A combination of cheerleaders, majorettes, and pom pom girls compliment the band with their kickline. Below: Seniors Gail V ur- kanin and Kenny Tacchino discuss the action. ‘Come on everybody do the Mule beat, ’cause today is the day of Moravion’s de- feat.” The chant of cheer- leaders, a shrill whistle, the roaring crowds, and the knocking together of hel- mets in the first seconds of the game signal the begin- ning of that glorified time of the year: football season. The Mules had a winning record, but there was more to those Saturday after- noons in autumn than long gains and touchdowns. The football phenomenon de- pends on the side-line and half-time action as much as it does on the game. Excluding the athletic ac- tion, the performance planned for spectators has become an artistic tradition. Streamers at the goal post and the team running on the field, are a necessary pre- lude to the game. The cheer- leading squad is as impor- tant as the specialty teams. A football game is a ten- sion break. Brass music is provided as a background to raucous laughing and yell- The closer you get the better the Mules look! The crowd often pressed against the fence to inspect the football machine that executed a 6-2-1 winning record for the season. ing. The fraternity brothers get drunk, the professors get rowdy, and everybody is al- lowed to hate the referee or his mother. There is a common bond in the crowd that presses to- gether, enduring the weath- er in a stubborn loyalty to the home team. At no other one place and time can ad- ministrators, students, fac- ulty, parents, alumni, and community be found in such jovial harmony. Each frat sits together, (ATO on the opposite for a ACTION OFF-SIDES SPARKLES better view), TKE’s bell and brothers have an outstand- ing reputation as enthusi- asts. The day would be a failure if bare-chested, pot- bellied Rudy Favocci did not join the kickline. No other sport at Muhlenberg is surrounded by such a pro- duction. The football phenomenon also includes an element of poignancy for the team members on the side-lines who have endured numb hands and wind sprints at practice only to watch from the bench the glory of being a football hero. Scanning the crowds and athletes reveals expressions of determination, pain, frus- tration and delight. There is more to those Saturday afternoons in autumn than long gains and touchdowns. — Cathy Robertson 11 The College Life: side-lines and half-time “Right, left, right, left. . . .

The College Life: winter 13 Although the last two weeks of the first semester are often a period of panic, pleasant distractions lead to procrastination! At the top of the Christ- mas list are finding a tree and decorating it, attending the Candlelight Service and eating the fraternity’s Un- ion’s or Christmas dinner. How often do you encounter Dr. Claude Dierolf serving you eggnog with a smile, Tim Romig carrying your tray, Lynn Klein slicing your bread or Bill Thygeson running to refill your coffee cup? Unfortunately for the cum, snow season is a time not only for finals, but also for snowballs in the fridge, skiing, and traying. In De- cember, cafe trays are at a premium. While the pres- sure is mounting, these ac- tivities pull most from their secret study places to relax and release some tension. Mind-boggling finals can alter the character of the seemingly normal person. For Example, Cedar Crest College, a five-minute drive, a ten-minute walk, becomes a getaway as Muhlenbergers move in with their books, hotpots, toothbrushes, back- packs, etc. The wardrobe of a student at this time is also a bit absurb. It usually in- cludes jeans, sneakers top- siders, no socks maybe clean underwear, and a shirt that was slept in the night before. A food fight was again scheduled during the mid- week of finals. Many stu- dents were sent invitations through the mail; however, Dean LeCount, Lynne Klein, Gail Farnam and var- ious other VIP persons at- tended unannounced. Post-final celebration means something different to each person. It may be screaming, burning books, sleeping, blaring your ste- reo, sitting comatose, play- ing pinball at Georges, star- ing at your bong as it beck- ons and then munching out on a banana sundae in the new General’s Quarters. I At the Christmas dinner, professors and administrators manned the punch bowl, coffee pots, bread boards and soup cauldrons. Rich Ri oli takes a break (above) with Tim Teichmann and Charlotte Baker. On top of all this seasonal havoc, falls the hypnotizing snow. The Center for the Arts, the chapel and even the library take on a mystic beauty in their robes of white fluff. We leave tin- seled trees, decorated doors and friends to spend the holidays at home. - Priscilla Halliwell DID YOU RETURN YOUR TRAY TODAY? 14 Ciarla Mail time is II o’clock. The daily expectation is usually met with campus information flyers or meeting notices rather than letters from parents , friends, or sweethearts. Anything is better than an empty box, however. Blaring, and loathsome are the alarm clocks which every morning conspire to drag the campus community out of bed. For some the un- godly hour is 6:30; others begin the day at noon, de- pending on when the first class starts, or when last night’s party ended. From the hours of 7-9:30 AM anything can happen from routine oversleeping to finding worms in the shower and no underwear in the drawer both situations being caused by the raids and re- taliations that took place be- tween Brown and Phi Tau. Breakfast and brunches are so predictable, it is diffi- cult to distinguish between a cheese omelette and scram- bled eggs, although there is always the option of sleep- ing through them. If one does make breakfast, bring the tray up before five of nine to avoid the line, un- less, of course, it’s snowing — then don’t bring the tray up at all. Excluding the union, there are other survival spots to which students can turn for victuals. The snack bar serves junk food, the bookstore sells Pepperidge Farm cookies, and George’s is famous for his hoagies among other things. LIVING DEMANDS ORIGINALITY A resident student is faced with responsibilities other than midterms, labs and papers. Washday re- quires a heavy work load. There is an average of three, washing machines and al- most 200 students in each dorm. Also, those on the five day meal plan are left to their imaginations on week- ends. Either Salvatores, Wendy’s, or MacDonalds gain the business, a friend’s meal card is used, or new and exciting cuisine is cre- ated. There are some bright spots to living on campus. One is the lit library dome, another, the new, swank Union lobby. Dorm living is an atypical adventure. In a resident sit- uation, stereos, roommates, killer frisbee games, phone calls, and spontaneous par- ties are all alternatives to studying and make living hectic but never boring. - Cathy Robertson The College Life: room and board 15 Students stand in a half hour line for books they don ' t really want.

Sunshine is a winter cure- all. Rain on top of snow which froze at night then turned into slush by mid- day, characterized the end- of-the-season weather in ’ 79 . We were sick of wet shoes, slickers and damp, dismal days. Tired of sliding to fraternity parties and fall- ing home. Disgusted with frozen windshields, slick parking lots and cars that wouldn’t start — when the sun broke through! It changed ' ' ne’s everyday existence. Classes are the most unnatural place to be on a clear, bright, made-for- tennis afternoon. Bathing suits and towels which were in the back of the closet were dragged out. The unofficial “who’s first with a tan” contest began. Brown mall became a ceme- tary for the living as more and more prone bodies - male and female- sprawled on the lawn. Each radio was turned to a different radio station; books lay untouched beside students with good inten- tions. Papers blew away. Former study pillows as- sumed a more sensible func- tion. ON A DAY LIKE THIS? Walz and Benfer beaches were for those who appreci- ate more private resorts. Whether it was the weather, or just the threat of spring weekend approach- ing, guys began to single out girls and speak in full sen- tences. “Hi, what’s your ma- jor?” Funny we never no- ticed each other all winter. Yeah. The sun provoked the tra- ditional spring phenomenon in front of the library. It was tough to get a seat on the benches or the steps. After a winter of dressing in uni-sex jeans, sweaters and ski jack- ets, girls suddenly appeared in sundresses and sandals, and real guys came out in tank tops and shorts. It was great to have to squint. The good old celestial orb provoked picnics, softball games, baseball and track viewing, outdoor Union din- ners, memories of Florida- over-break, walks to the park, feeding the ducks, reading under a tree, (sitting under a tree,) bicyling, jog- ging, quarry-swimming, beer on the roof and frizbee wars. Dorney Park Day, which mature college adults might scorn at any other time of the year, was O.K. in May. Sponsored by Program Board the spring rite includ- ed all the rides you could eat; the food was not includ- ed. A bus ran to the park from campus once every half hour, all day. It is only in the sunshine, after a weary winter, that we can fully realize what the college life is all about. — Cathy Robertson CLASS, 18 Ciarla Two ingredients make a frat party. Bob Alencewicz (ATO) and Scott Kurtz (PKT) hoist them. Do fraternities do any- thing besides have parties? The ‘animal house’ image, which is a traditional one, says no. So did the Bo. But perhaps there is more to fraternities than meets the lips. Fraternity means brotherhood, literally. The frat house must have more to offer a freshman pledge than beer. Would he go through kidnappings, hu- miliation, physical pain and hell night for something he could get at George’s? There are test files in the houses. Also a backlog of in- formation about most fe- males on campus. A frater- nity man inherits a ready- made image of virile mascu- FIRST linity and popularity. He also takes on the character- istics of the house, in other’s eyes at least. This can be good or bad. Frats are prone to stereo- typing, as almost any group of individuals is. The labels are not entirely accurate, but they are unavoidable. The key to maintaining individuality in a fraternity is, for example, to become known first as Jimmy John- son, and second as an ATO brother, and not the other way around. Members of a fraternity do have a committment to each other. They are united by the trials of pledging and the esoteric initiation cere- monies. Because the latter are secretive we really can- not be sure what kind of committment exists or what rituals and tenets hold the frat together, and the group IN BEER AND BROTHER HOOD has something private which marks the knowers as mem- bers of the same body. Kidnapping tactics caused a hitch in the usual pledge proceedings this year. Dean Dale LeCount mysteriously received a printed list of ATO’s kid- napping rules, and found- them to be against the by- laws of the national chap- ters. ATO refused to sign a statement that they would not kidnap, unless the other four fraternities would do the same. None cooperated because they wanted the Muhlenberg Fraternity Council, and not the admin- istration to handle pledging violations. For all this, without the parties, why should a frater- nity exist? The weekends on campus would not even de- serve such a title without pub nites, happy hours and band parties. Frats provide the social life on campus, with a little help from Benfer program board and the hen house. For that we should be grate- ful. The Cresties certainly are! — Cathy Robertson The College Life: fraternities 19 The new TKE bar is tended by Dave Scharf and Kevin Hardy. Be- low: ATO won the IM football game.

Podiums And Postulates 27 Chapter 2 Podiums And Postulates 28 Ciarla ARTISTIC TALENT ILLUSTRATED Art students strive to broaden their college education. Some have taken internships with the Allentown Art Museum, the Morning Call, local advertising agencies, or architects. The department sponsors trips to New York and Philadelphia art museums, emphasizing the importance of seeing original art work as well as studying from books. Dr. Ellen Callmann, department head, explained that in the past, students had one specific major and took art as a second major or a minor. Because of enlarging and improving the department, freshman now come with intentions of majoring in art rather than adding or switching to it. “The art depart- ment, like the college, is tailored to meet the students’ needs,” said Dr. Callmann. In order to offer a larger selection of courses, the Muhlen- berg art department cooperates with that of Cedar Crest mak- ing available courses such as Ceramics, Metal-smithing, and Movie-making. Some of the popular courses at Muhlenberg are Basic Photography, Introduction to Art History, Sculp- ture, and Drawing. The art faculty stresses that the department welcomes non- majors and majors alike. Many of the art courses require no prerequisites and the nature of studio work is a change from text books and labs. Because of the interpretive quality of artwork, faculty, majors, and non-majors learn from one an- other. “If we stop learning, it’s the end of all of us, isn’t it?,” exclaimed Dr. Callmann. “We can ' t learn in isolation.” Mrs. Linda Weintraub, lecturer, said that the results of the students’ artwork are personal expressions; artists draw what they feel. Mrs. Weintraub teaches a drawing course which emphasizes both careful technique and free expression of con- cept. - Lisa Farbstein Mallet in hand. Candy DeSouza takes a chip off the old block.

Second Row: Mr. Thomas Sternal, Ms. Linda Weintraub, lecturer. - ESSAY - THE CENTER With the exception of the freshman Humanities course, many times a student’s only experience with art is through the displays in the Center for the Arts. Although Director Monroe Denton labors to present a variety of artists in different medias, most of the art on display is modern because with older works come exorbitant insurance costs. Dr. Callmann, art department head, stressed that there has been a minimal amount of vandalism in the C.A. She is surprised that there hasn’t been any graffiti drawn on the building; a huge, pure white wall is very tempting. Despite derogatory nicknames such as ' The White Ele- phant’ and a few minor incidents with soap suds in the WATER WALLS TOGETHER WITH THE SUN dis- play, The Center for the Arts is generally respected and appreciated. Displays by artists such as Alice Aycock, Bri- an O’Neill (3-part hanging sculpture, FALLEN FLUH 34), Angelo Savelli, and Roman Opalka are significant works which bring recognition to the Center as well as subject matter for comment, critique and art education. Wall space for student artwork is a controversial issue. Although an area by the soda machines has been designated for student work, some Muhlenberg artists feel they deserve more space to show their pieces. Partially to alleviate this problem and also as a climactic celebration in art, the Center sponsored a Panorama Day, on which student art, crafts, jazz and poetry accompanied a presentation of the DiSuvero sculpture on April 28 and 29. 30 Ciarla BIOLOGY — First Row: Dr. Carl Oplinger, Dr. Robert Schaeffer.

Below: Joe Scognamiglio dissects ‘Jaws III’ in Vertebrate Morphology. ENTHUSIASM ABOUNDS IN LIFE STUDY One of the oldest on campus, the biology department now appeals to two major groups of students, those planning to enter medical, dental or veterinary school and those who plan to work in industry or to go on to graduate school where interest is centered in the fields of biochemistry and microbi- ology. Although it is only required of the honor students, a large portion of biology students choose to do a research project or an independent study under the direction of one of the profes- sors. Some examples are anatomical research of a particular animal, writing and illustrating a trail guide in collaboration with the Allentown Park District, and a vegetation study of the trees on South Mountain to further skills in tree identification. Electron-microscopy has become a very popular research area. Both the transmillion and scanning electronmicroscopes can be adapted to have photographs taken of subjects being viewed under the microscopes. A new piece of equipment this year is the scintillation counter which is used for radioscopic tagging. This machine enables a radioactive material to be traced through the body of an organism. Dr. James Vaughn, head of the biology depart- ment, stated that one of the department’s unique features as compared with that of similar schools is that each and every piece of equipment and all facilities are used by the students, and not just by a professor doing research. Most of the faculty members are actively pursuing their own research projects while they teach. Dr. Irvin Schmoyer is investigating cistic fibrosis. Mr. Paul Weaver has been re- searching the nature of various bacterial viruses. The ultras- tructure of cells has been the focus of Dr. John Weston’s study. Dr. Vaughn’s research centers on enzymes. The faculty research projects are linked to student needs and interests. - Stephanie Jurga 32 Ciarla Jeff Chambers’ paper on amaranth, a potential food crop, won second place honors at a conference for Intercollegiate Student Chemists. Left: Lab brief- ing is done by Charles Mortimer. BEARDED FACULTY PREDOMINATES Five out ot seven full-time chemistry professors have beards, giving the department the highest growth percentage in this school. (See far left for verification.) The department encourages research work. Chemistry 98, Introduction to Research, is a requirement of all chemistry majors and may be rostered more than once. Students taking the course, research in the area in which the professor with whom they are working is interested. Dr. Russell Smart’s particular subject is organic silicon compounds and Dr. Don- ald Shive’s concentration is in methods of analysis, specifically electric polarography. Introduction to Chemistry, the text used in freshman chem- istry was written by Dr. Charles Mortimer, department head. Next year the book Chemistry: A Conceptual Approach by Dr. Mortimer, which came out in fourth edition in the begin- ning of March will be used for the course. The fact that chemistry is a changing and progressing field makes textual revisions necessary. One-third of a book must be updated before a new edition can be published. Donald and Louis Shive wrote the New Student Self-Guide which is a supplementary study aid. The freshman lab manual was written by Dr. Richard Hatch. Equipment worth almost one-half million dollars is owned by the department. Most of it was acquired by foundation grants. A grant proposal has been drawn up for a new atomic absorption spectrophotometer which identifies elements pre- sent in a sample by the light given off when irradiated. Seniors enrolled in Chemistry 97, Independent Study, pre- sent papers once a week in a seminar group. The department is on the approved list of the American Chemistry Society, an organization for which few liberal arts schools have high enough standards to qualify. -Cathy Robertson Unswerving attention is given to regulating heating by Tom Hauer(above) and Rick Mack (right).

Dr. Robert Wind and Mrs. Reba Marblestone bring the tongues of Latin, Greek and Hebrew out of the past. The small department has six students as majors, most of them double majors such as Chemistry Classics and Ac- counting Classics. The largest job demand is for graduates with a teaching certification in Latin. The students’ classes are tailored to fit individual needs. Independent studies and seminars are frequently taken to fulfill the advanced course requirements. These have in- cluded a seminar on comedy, offerred second semester, and an independent study on New Testament Greek done by Kevin Grandin, a senior. Interest in classics is furthered through Eta Sigma Phi, the Classics Club, which sponsored a trip to see the classical play Antigoni first sememster. The department will be en- larged next year with the addition of Mrs. Mary Redline, who will be teaching the introductory courses. Dr. Wind will continue to teach Greek and advanced Latin, and Mrs. Marblestone, Hebrew. - Steph Jurga ETA SIGMA PHI — First Row: Maritsa Tzimas, Sue Trubilla. Second Row: Mark Malzberg, Brian Warner.

Mass communication has become more powerful with every decade; investigative reporting has taken the respon- sibility of the social “gadfly”, and almost every profession has been affected by or relies upon the influence of mass communication. Opportunities with a major in communications include print journalism, broadcasting, radio production, television production, film production and photojournalism. The Institute of Communications is a cooperative innova- tion, which offers studies of history, theory, use and influ- ence of communications, techniques of communication and application of communications to human concerns. In addition, the junior and senior year offer a semester of practical work experience under the supervision of a profes- sional. COMMUNICATIONS — Dr. George Gordon, department head. Below Mr. Jack McCallum taught Basic Reporting, an introductory course in the communications program. Courses could be rostered at Cedar Crest and Muhlenberg. 36 Ciarla JOB HUNTERS WELCOME SPEAKERS Economics, business and accounting are the three possible majors within the economics department. Students select their courses from a continuously updated curriculum and often decide to major in more than one area. The new Economics and Business Club adds a further di- mension to the department. The club is open to any one majoring in, or considering majoring in the business field. Its purpose is to explore career paths available to students. One of the first activities was a tour of the First National Bank of Allentown where students received first-hand knowl- edge of the banking industry. The group visited area invest- ment brokers and had a meeting with Merrill Lynch, broker. The club also sponsors several speakers each year. Dr. Rich- ards gave his farewell address on economic justice to a large and receptive audience. James Marshall also gave a lecture on portfolio theory. Under the auspices of the Miller Lecture Series, Dr. Jensen from the University of Rochester was the annual guest speaker. Nadeem Hussain was president of the club first semester, and, after his graduation in December, Suzane Butler took over as president. In conjunction with the Career Planning and Placement office, a career night was held involving a presentation by Mr. Peter Veruki of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. All Muhlen- berg students were invited to learn about careers in business and industry for the liberal arts student. Both the students and faculty have big plans for the upcom- ing years, the department is presently considering a variety of new courses in the area of international business. The students are also planning to organize a trip to New York City for a week where they will explore various opportunities in business and industry. Because of the practicality of business courses, students from other departments frequently choose to pick up second majors in accounting or business administration. -Steve Gilchrist Interviews for business majors are set up by the Career Planning office.

ELEMENTARY, HIGH SCHOOL RELIVED Considering the practicality of an Education major, it is not surprising to find Muhlenberg offering an exceptionally strong program to a large number of students. The education pro- gram is enriched by an active Teacher Education Committee, which periodically evaluates course offerings and makes reco- mendations for improvement. An Education Society of approximately thirty students seeks to broaden their contact with current educational trends by securing guest speakers and movies. President Chrisie Erler coordinated such functions as Nancy Brook’s address concern- ing mainstreaming of handicapped children. Dr. Barbara Mur- phy’s discussion of her experiences on a Navajo Reservation, and Dr. Ann Wonsiewicz’s speech on “The Exceptional Child.” The student response to the Education major is over-whelm- ingly positive, Ann Stanley felt that “the courses I have taken have more than adequately prepared me for a career in teach- ing. Em very pleased that the program is so well suited to my needs, and I look forward with anticipation to actual class- room situations.” Mike Elwell found working with both handi- capped and gifted students to be thrilling. “They were as excited about our Tuesday sessions as I was!” he exclaimed. B. J. Lazur felt good about the support given to her by the Education Department. “No matter how big or small mv problem was, they took care of me immediately,” she said. Ms. Lazur taught history at both Trexler Junior High and Park- land High School, and found that having experience in more than one district was a tremendous plus. At least two women have jobs guaranteed for after gradu- ation. Both Janet Booth and Ellen Drugmond will be taking the place of their “cooperating” teachers who will be out for at least a year on maternity leave. -Bill O’Shaughnessy Simulation is an effective practice for education majors, behavior and dealing with discipline problems.

About 40 percent of the teaching staff is involved in fresh- man English. The courses offered each semester, covering a wide variety of topics, allow English majors to explore their own areas of interest as well as provide a sound background and a degree of freedom in fulfilling departmental require- ments. Beyond class room experience, the Contemporary Drama class travels to Philadelphia or New York to see plays. They saw “Long Day’s Journey into Night” at Allentown’s Rodale theater this spring. The department’s seminar offering allow small group dis- cussion and more in-depth consideration of a variety of topics. This year’s seminars cover contemporary American poetry, science and literature. An honor’s program is offered to juniors and seniors who have excelled in their regular course work. This involves inde- pendent research of chosen topics under the guidance of a faculty member who specializes in that area. Twelve honored English students are numbers of Sigma Tau Delta, the national honorary English fraternity. The group sponsored Dr. Vos’ O’Neill lecture and a talk given by Dr. Hattersley on the Beat movement in poetry. A committee of majors, made of four students elected by all English majors, acts as a liason between the department and the students. Through the committee, the student point of view is expressed when decisions concerning the department are being made. This department is large enough yet specific enough to fill all of its majors’ needs. - Denise Gerhart The chapel is a backdrop for Michael Hattersley ' s p oetry reading.

Elementary and intermediate classes teach the elements of language. Higher level courses deal with the art, literature, and culture of the countries, while further broadening the linguistic capa- bilities of the students. Students with a heightened interest in a language have several options. Bernheim House is a special interest house on campus in which the thirteen female residents speak only German. Through Phi Sigma Iota, the National Romance Language Honor Society, the cultural life of countries where Romance Languages are spoken, is explored. Senior members present reports on foreign cultures for the rest of the society. ‘Junior year abroad’-these are words with an aura of adven- ture around them. This becomes a reality for many language majors, as well as several non-language majors. Students at- tending universities in Western Europe sharpen their language skill and become accultured to a new way of life. Various events on campus bring the culture of faraway countries to those at Muhlenberg who cannot travel abroad. Victor Muravin, a Soviet emigre author, lectured on Soviet political affairs and the dissident movement. Arkady Ivov, a former Soviet citizen, discussed the subject “Censorship and The Soviet Writer.” Dr. Johannes A. Goertner, professor emeritus of art history from Lafayette College, gave two lectures at Muhlenberg on German painting from Durer through World War 1. Trench culture was explored through the presentation of the play “Le Jeu d’Adam.” Members of Trench classes aided the production, which was performed in French. The yearly trip by the intermediate French classes to the opera Carmen has been another opportunity for students to gain insight into the French culture. - Steph Jurga Phi Sigma Iota — First Row: Susan Martin, Cyn- president.

" 44 Ciarla WIE ES EIGENTLICH GEWESEN History courses encompass every country and time period in the world in the fields art, music, lituature, and politics, and give insight and meaning to the long experience of mankind. The members of the faculty are varied in their interests. Dr. Renville Lund is absorbed in Asian culture, and oriental art. Dr. Indrikis Sterns’ specialty is the medieval Byzantine area. While Dr. Sterns is writing a history of Latvia, Dr. Joanne Mortimer has plans to create with her husband Dr. Charles Mortimer, a history of science textbook. Dr. Joel Siegle’s favorite topic is . . . the French Revolution. Dr. Daniel Wilson expects his book on Arthur Lovejoy to be published shortly by the New York University Press. Dr. Katherine Van Eerde, department head, is striving to write pages on the Elizabethan period from which her efforts in “An Elizabethan Fantasy” were an off shoot. Dr. Edwin Baldrige, the popular and charismatic professor of the civil war, is a member of the Parkland School Board and the Kiwanis Club. History honor students are picked second semester each year and are expected to work above the normal course load of a history major. Students doing independent studies were sen- iors Elise Mendelman and Jean Stark, both under the guid- ance of Dr. Mortimer. Elise is the president of Phi Alpha Theta, the active honor- ary history society which sponsored several speakers and de- partment get-togethers. Another history major, junior Jane Goldsmith is a member of the Lehigh County Historical Soci- ety for which she does oratorical work. According to Dr. Van Eerde, history should be taken as a freshman because it gives insight into all other subjects. So far, the college agrees with Dr. Van Eerde resulting in that course with which we are all familiar, freshman history. -Stephanie Jurga Using a kitchen in Brown to escape noise, history major Jill Guidroz delves into the past.

Podiums and Postulates: math FORTRAN IS SPOKEN HERE Working with a language other than English is always a challenge, and the language of numbers is no exception. Be- cause of its practical nature in the science field, math is often combined in a double-major with natural science or chemistry. With a concentration on computers, many business students add math to their majors. Students with a special interest in mathematics, majors or otherwise, are invited to join the Math Club, which consists of about twenty students. The club sponsors an annual math contest in which area high school students participate. This year’s contest, held on March 24th, was attended by seven high schools. The club also invites speakers to the college and, in the spring, holds a dinner for declared freshman math majors, so that they can become acquainted with professors and upper class majors. The current faculty members have special interest areas. Dr. John Nassar, department head, has a concentration in geome- try. Dr. Adnah Kostenbauder and Mr. Robert Stump teach the infamous freshman calculus course. Dr. Kostenbader ' s interest lies in topology and Mr. Stump’s is in the field of real and complex analysis, which includes much of the theory behind higher mathematics. Mr. Robert Wagner is the depart- ment statistician. The computer, located in the basement of Ettinger, is a new resource for the department. It is a digital DEC-1 1-70 system which ‘speaks’ three languages. It is available for computer science courses, use in other departments, and independent studies. -Stephanie Jurga Mr. Robert Stump helps to clarify a mystifying equation for a grateful student.

Student participation, fostered by a hard-working and creative faculty, was supplemented by a number of performances by guest musicians. The Muhlenberg College Choir performed under Dr. Charles McClain for the first semester, and under Mr. Ludwig Lenel the second semester while Dr. McClain was on sabbati- cal. Three years’ participation in either the choir or the band directed by Mr. Demkee, is required by majors. Talented students and faculty found various outlets for their energy throughout the year. Senior majors who gave a recital included Leonard Zon, who played the trumpet, and Lorie Greiman on flute. Jeremy Slavin, a faculty member, displayed his vocal ability at a recital this fall. Dr. Henry Schmidt published arrangements of Mozart, Beethoven and Weber in Six Marches for Brass. The choir’s Spring Concert included several pieces written or edited by Dr. Lenel. A blending of faculty and student talents was brought about at “An Evening at the Opera’’ this spring. Faculty member Margaret Garwood composed the opera “The Trojan Wom- en,” and played the piano for the performance. Dr. Schmidt directed the ensemble and Mr. Slavin directed the vocals. “The Telephone” was also presented, and students participat- ed in the staging, lighting, playing and singing of this opera also.

The written pledge remained unchanged, but the atmosphere in which it is now to be signed was altered when the College Committee on Student Affairs’ proposal for revision of the Honor Code was passed by a 16- 6-1 vote at a student body meeting. The original code lost credibility. More and more cheat- ing took place. Few students “squealed” and the student court was an ineffective threat to those were were caught. Before the Honor Code became a titular placebo for the righteous, some realism had to change a tradition. The presence of a professor is now required during an examination. If cheating is suspected, the student in ques- tion must be confronted before a grade is recorded. A student who witnesses cheating may report it to the new Academic Board, urge the cheater to report him her- self, or directly confront the professor involved. The Academic Board, replacing a student court, consists of five faculty members and six students. One student serves as a chairperson who chooses the jurors for each case and presides over the hearing. A professor or administrator appointed by the Dean will serve as a case officer. His her duties include keeping records, advising and researching and presenting the case. An enforced honor code. Sad, but essential. -Cathy Robertson PHILOSOPHY — First Row: Dr. David Reed, department head; Mrs. Margaret Rooney, Second Row: Dr. Ludwig Schlecht.

REED PERFORMS GRIFFES Which department tackles the problems of the universe, the origin of man, the structure of government, the limits of sci- ence, the value of language, the logic of math, and the intrica- sies of man’s mind? Philosophy embodies all these fields and more, with myriad answers and no absolutes. While each subject of math, science, government, language and psychology studies one of these enigmas, each is limited. Philosophy, however, knows no bounds. It draws its power from the thoughts of the most perceptive minds of all times and civilizations. Unique and yet a part of everyone, it makes for a most interesting course of study. The college offers a philosophy department which is both broad and specific. Subjects such as An Introduction to Philo- sophical Thinking, Logic and Ancient, Medieval, Modern and Contemporary Philosophy offer the beginner a comprehensive start. Advanced courses include written projects, independent reading, and final oral and comprehensive written exams. Dr. David Reed, head of the philosophy department, showed his appreciation of philosophy extended into the realm of music when he and Ludwig Lenel, professor of music and composer-in-residence celebrated the 150th anniversary of Schubert with a concert duo called “Schubertriad " at Muh- lenberg. The program consisted of some of Schubert’s four- hand piano works, two choruses for women ' s ensemble and piano, a setting of the 23rd Psalm, and a serenade. Dr. Reed also performed Charles A. Griffen concert second semester. Those philosophy students who were caught up with the search for truth formed an organization of minds, called the Philosophy Club. They met once every two months and at regular intervals when guest speakers lectured. Barb Robertson 52 Ciarla GYM CLA SSES ENCOURAGE RECREATION Students go to their physical education classes to exercise, and just forget about studying for an hour. Bowling class is one of the most popular gym classes every semester. The students compete with each other as they im- prove their bowling technique. The only complaint about this course is the overcrowding of the classes. Ms. Kay Schweyer, who lectured fall semester, added vari- ety to her Archery course by taping balloons and Halloween decorations to the target faces. The dance aspect of the phys. ed. program was stepped up by Mrs. Donna Evans. In addition to teaching three dance classes, Mrs. Evans coached the Dance Club. The Carol Conway Dance Company and Ellen Forman, who performed a tribute to Isadora Duncan, both visited Muhlenberg. In Badminton three basic shots are taught- the smash, the drive, and the drop shot. Tournaments, both doubles and singles, are held in Memorial Hall. Frank Marino’s Philosophy and Principles of Coaching course is also popular. It is the only physical education course in which physical activities are replaced by theory. In addition to discussing the principles of coaching, Marino speaks on topics that are more immediate to the students such as football recruiting, academics among athletes, and professional athlet- ics. Marino also throws in a few jokes. Intramurals, which are popular on campus, are related to the physical education department because they are under the direction of the faculty and the gym facilities are used. Volley- ball, kickball, football, basketball, soccer, softball, and track all have good turnouts. Participants take intramurals almost as seriously as team members regard varsity sports, which the faculty of the physical education department coach. -Lisa Farbstein With a strike in mind and room to spare, Mike Clinton swings in Bowling.

PHYSICISTS ESSENTIAL TO INDUSTRY “A degree in physics offers a student a wide range of voca- tional opportunities.” said Dr. Robert Boyer, the head of the physics department. A person who has a background in physics has many other options open to him besides becoming a pro- fessional physicist. “At one time, approximately 75 to 80 percent of the physics majors went on to graduate school. That is no longer true,” emphasized Boyer. “Many of our students get jobs directly in industry with the technical background that a bachelor of science degree in physics gives them.” In a candid interview, Boyer explained that because of the variety of occupations open to students with a physics degree, the department has become quite flexible concerning required courses. “The courses that a student chooses are dependent upon his or her occupational goals,” said Boyer. Aside from the re- quired courses, Physics 1 and 2, the students choose their electives according to their own personal interests. The diversi- ty of knowledge in the department gives the students the opportunity to investigate many different careers. Muhlenberg has quite a large physics department for a small liberal arts college. Each of the professors specializes in different areas. Dr. Raub teaches courses in atomic and nucle- ar physics and biophysics. Dr. Boyer’s interests include acous- tics and ultrasonics. Dr. Loy specializes in optics and quantum mechanics. Dr. Milligan channels his expertise into thermal physics and electronics. The low student-to-teacher ratio in the department permits a good deal of individual attention. “We get to know our students very well and they get to know us in turn,” concludes Dr. Boyer. “This is one of the advantages of studying at a small liberal arts college.” 56 Ciarla LAW SCHOOL MOTIVATES MAJORS Since World War II, international politics have become a major field, and rarely a day goes by when something impor- tant doesn’t occur in the political realm. The political science department has 82 majors. This makes it one of the largest departments on campus, while at the same time it is the youngest, having been formed in 1965. The faculty includes four full-time members and an attor- ney, Dr. Malcom Gross, who taught a law course first semes- ter. Each with his own political philosophy, the faculty mem- bers offer courses from American and European political phi- losophy, Dr. Charles Bednar’s interest, to Dr. Christopher Joyner’s specialty in international politics, organization and law. Dr. Stewart Lee’s field is Asian government and develop- ing nations. Dr. Alton Slane, also chairman of the pre-law program, specializes in constitutuional law and public admin- istration. All faculty members have published several articles. In addition Dr. Joyner has edited several books. At least one seminar a semester is offered such as Politics of Global Environment with Dr. Joyner, the American Presiden- cy with Dr. Bednar, and Modern China with Dr. Lee. Indepen- dent studies are another option for political science students. Among the most popular topics have been local government, legal studies and political statistics. At this time there are two students in the honors program: Mark Paris and Ron Clevor, both in the class of ' 80. The Political Science honors society, Pi Sigma Alpha, is led by Greg Campisi. Sponsored jointly by the local chapter of Amnesty Interna- tional, the pre-law society and the International Affairs Club was a forum entitled “An Exploration of Issues Involved in Death by Decree.” Guest speakers were Dr. Bednar, Dr. Na n- cy Joyner of Cedar Crest College and District Attorney Wil- liam Platt. - Stephanie Jurga JOHN MARSHALL PRE-LAW — First Row: Bill Hyman, Dawn Eilenberger, Leona Barnett, Ron Clever, Aaron Gorovitz, Keith Green, Chip Jones.

Our professors’ patron- mics are as over used as the terms ‘libes’ and ‘bummed.’ We take them for granted. Many of us have Schaeffer and Schmidt more often than we realize.

Social and Personality Psychology, which includes Child Psychology, the Psychology of Adolescence, Behavior Dis- orders, and the Psychology of Adulthood and Aging, consti- tute a branch of the field. Applied Psychology is another specialized course of study, and offered Industrial Psychology, Test and Mea- surements, the Exceptional Child, and Principals of Guid- ance. Opportunites for individual research projects were avail- able for majors who complete preliminary work early and who demonstrated capability for independent work.

A religion is not a major course of study, and is usually taken only to fulfill the college’s religion requirement. The faculty has set certain course goals for the interest and benefit of the students: an introduction to the academic study of religion, an understanding of each student’s own religion, an awareness and sensitivity to other religious and an awareness of of the role of in society. The department is made up of three full-time members, and several part-time professors and lecturers, whose interests cov- er a wide variety of topics. Dr. Jodock, an ordained Lutheran clergyman is interested in the history of theology. Other full- time faculty members are Dr. Rodney Ring, a specialist in the Old and New Testaments, and Dr. William Jennings, whose interests are ethics and the religions of Asia and Japan. Chap- lain David Bremer has a degree in the psychology of religion. Dr. Nelvin Vos, member of the English department, ties his literary interests with regligion and is a guest professor. Dr. Ziedonis, a Lutheran clergyman and professor of Russian, combines his interests in Russian studies and Eastern Ortho- doxy. Rabbis Herbert Brockman and William Greenberg both teach courses related to the Jewish culture and religion. The Jewish Chautauqua Society has donated money to establish a course on the Holocaust to be taught by Rabbi Brockman next term. In addition to regular courses of the department, students can create independent in-depth studies of their own religious concerns.

Imagine sitting in the library and calling someone who is alien to Muhlenberg jargon a throat. What would he think? ... ‘Is my shirt button open?’, ‘Am I swallowing too loud- ly?’, ‘Does it look sore?’ The last thing he would consider in his puzzlement is that he was studying too intently. The origin of the term is lost. We are left to speculate. Perhaps in the early 60’s at Muhlenberg there existed an infamous nerd named Herbert Throat — hence, the nick- name. Maybe it came from the freshman ' s habit of choking and grasping his throat before a test. Whatever the cause, the effect is a word which sounds right and fits neatly into our vocabulary. Its formal, symbolic meaning, known only within our community, is: a compulsive studier. Is it possible to study too hard at Muhlenberg? The answer is — yes. Anyone who wastes four college years — which our elders inform us were their best — in the library, won’t learn a thing. Academics are important, sometimes. Unfortunately, some take this idea too seriously. College should teach lessons not catalogued in the Dewey Decimals. But, this liberal arts philosophy of which the college is so proud falls on deaf ears in the case of a sore throat. — Cathy Robertson One little Indian uses sign language as Maggie Smith attempts communi- cation.

SOCIAL PROJECTS UNCOVERED Among the activities sponsored by the Department of Soci- ology and Anthropology this year was a weekend visit to the Allegheny Reservation of the Seneca Nation of Indians in Salamanca, New York. The October trip, organized by Dr. Joseph Francello for his Cultural Anthropology class, but attended by other students and faculty as well, encompassed many aspects of life on the reservation. Participants toured the grounds and the Seneca National Museum, saw Indian dancing and an arts and crafts display, and were treated to an Indian meal prepared by the women of the reservation’s Presbyterian church in which they were housed overnight. A special course in the preservation of historic homes con- ducted by professor of Sociology, Dr. Roger Baldwin and his wife Carol, was offered in April. In the workshop, the Bald- wins, who have restored a nearby historic home themselves, explored such areas as how to trace a house’s history, how to register a house, and where to find historic resources. The Sociology club, besides sponsoring speakers and mov- ies, invited alumni to a wine and cheese party fall semester where career development advice was offered to the students. In addition, Ms. Toomey’s archeology class visited radio- carbon dating labs and preservation labs in conjunction with University of Pennsylvania’s University Museum in Philadel- phia. The class also was given the opportunity to try their hand at archeological work at historic Trout Hall in Allentown.

American Studies and natural science are two popular interdepartmental majors. An American studies ma- jor rosters courses in art, music, history, economics and litera- ture; natural science includes those science courses which best prepares students for medical school. Self-designed majors such as rennaisance, reformation or drama are also possible. With the completion and expansion of the facilities in the Center of the Arts, more and more students are being approved as drama majors or choose drama as a second major. Computer science and communications are two areas which are not yet fully developed; however, by registering courses at Muhlenberg and Cedar Crest, these majors are possible. Interdepartmental courses add variety to the electives avail- able. Usually these classes are team-taught. The humanities course headed by Dr. Robert Thornburg is recommended for freshmen because it gives the scope of a liberal arts education, helpful for those undecided on a major. Regular lectures are supplemented by films, trips discussions, and guest speakers. Problems in Science and Society is a course which combines chemistry, represented by Dr. David Stehly, physics, taught by Dr. Robert Milligan, and biology, contributed by Dr. Carl Oplinger. This course is a good choice for filling a science elective because it offers an overview of scientific information which is relative to a non-science major. History of Science is team taught by the Drs. Joanne and Charles Mortimer, who mix facts and legends into an interest- ing combination. -Cathy Robertson Humanities students wait for the Broadway show to begin.

Good Sports: cross country 75 Although lacking depth and hindered by injuries, the cross country team com- piled their best won-lost record since 1973. Highlighting the season was Jim McCormick, who set a new school re- cord of 27:11 for the five mile course, shattering the old mark by a full half minute. Freshman McCormick was consistently the team ' s number one run- ner, with captain Howie Gerstein, sen- ior Paul Leodori, junior Mike Clinton, and freshman Mike Poorman rounding out the core of the squad. “We had a good balance of freshmen and upper- classmen,” commented Gerstein, who completed his fourth year on the squad. He and the team’s other 4-year veteran Paul Leodori provided inspiration as well as solid performances. One of the season’s best surprises came at the home meet against Dicken- son, when Clinton, Poorman, Leodori, and McCormick finished in a first place tie. Most disappointing was a 28-29 loss to Wilkes, one that coach William Fla- mish felt could have been a win if Ger- stein had not been injured. The team also had to run without a key man in the M.A.C. Championships when McCor- mick was injured, but still managed to place tenth overall in the competition. Nine-year coach Flamish was pleased but not surprised about the team’s record. “I knew we were im- proved,” he commented. He felt that the team’s major weakness was its lack of depth, which made injuries especially detrimental to the squad. Gerstein’s early-season injury not only sidelined him for awhile but, as Flamish pointed out, it also affected his performance lat- er on. Still, the team’s 7-6 record was greatly improved over last year’s 4-11 tally. The team will miss seniors Gerstein and Leodori, who were always among the team’s top five, but Coach Flamish looks for freshmen and incoming pros- pects to take up the slack and provide more depth. He was also excited about Clinton, primarily a track man. “He had no past cross country experience, but his performance was outstanding,” said Flamish, adding, “He was a very hard worker.” Gerstein also praised Clinton’s contribution. Clinton has been chosen as next year ' s captain. — Lisa Kroekel 76 Ciaral GIRLS BOOST 1 Freshman standout Sharon Hartline pushes downfield. 2 By drawing out the goalie, the Mules attempt to score. 3.

Carla Lightkep, who led the team all year as co-captain and leading scor- er, achieved the distinction of being named to the first team of all-stars in the tournament for the fourth straight year. Frosh Sharon Hospodar also earned the honor in her debut season. Helen Hospodar, coach of the hock- ey team for the past three years, felt that the team was much stronger in ability than it was the previous year. Outstanding players besides Lightkep, who scored 13 of the team’s 19 goals, and Hartline were the halfback pair of Karen Greider and Corrine Santerian, and co-captain Sandy Griffing. Hospo- dar labelled Griffing as the team ' s un- sung hero, citing her excellent skills and adding, “She may not get many goals, but she’s always there.” Facing a competitive schedule, the team ' s only disappointing loss was to Albright, who scored the winning goal in the last minute -and-a-half. A score- less tie with a strong Kutztown team was an unexpected but welcome out- come. Throughout the season, the team was a hard working one, but failed to put out that little extra energy and talent that would have turned their ties into wins and given them an outstanding re- cord. Dependable co-captains Lightkep and Griffing drew plaudits from Ho- spodar who said, “Both girls were very coachable and dedicated. It has been a privilege having them on the team for the past four years.

Good Sports: football 79 The first thing the Mules probably heard this summer as they began their initial practice was Coach Marino’s ex- hortation, “Let’s have no regrets!” A sense of team unity began that first day, and it was this ever-growing unity that carried the club up through the season finale. However as senior Tri -captains John Schlecter, Chuck Smith and Yogi Edwards are quick to point out, the team didn’t really come together until the midpoint of the season. As Chuck Smith stated, “I’m sure the team would like to thank the coaches for sticking with us in the beginning of the season. They always believed in us even when we were down on ourselves. That’s why we wound up 6-2-1.” Coach Marino is ecstatic over the prospects of next year’s squad. “We’ll only be losing five men to graduation. Although they will be missed, the nu- cleus of the team is already there for next year. The defense will be essential- ly unchanged, but the loss of key per- sonnel on offense might necessitate some revamping of that squad. So it looks as though next season will be a good one for a talented, experienced, and well-led Mule grid squad. 1. Coach Marino congratulates Doug Ligregni (36) for another booming punt. 2.

The season ' s low point was the opening day 42-6 loss to F M. Coach Marino admits that the team was sim- ply unprepared for Franklin Mar- shall’s experience. John Hopkins came to Allentown the next week and played football for one half. In the second, the Mules gave les- sons as the Blue Jays wings were clipped in a five minute span that saw the Mules rack up 4 TD’s. In Western Maryland, the Mule squad was forced to play catch up foot- ball. They managed a 15-15 tie as Schlechter hit Brian Marron with a 34 yard pass midway through the final quarter. The 35-15 loss to Lebanon Valley was a study in frustration. Brain Bodine and John Sartori both had great days as the Mule offense pushed all over the field, yet could not score. Bodine was named the E.C.A.C. Player of the week for his 219 yard performance in the Mule ' s 21-7 victory over Ursinis. The defense, led by Jerry Galgano shut down the Grizzlies at- tack. The 19-14 domination of Dickenson on the following Saturday put the Mule rocket into the stratosphere. This spirit carried over into the thrilling 16-14 Mule Homecoming victory over Swarthmore and also to the Mules ' de- struction of a shaky Susquehanna squad with that 20-7 score. Closing out the season at Moravian with a 34-0 victory, the Mules were led by Brian Bodine and John Schlechter, both of whom had excellent days. Both defense and offense were devestating, as the Greyhounds were toally dominat- ed. It was a fitting end to a tremendous Muhlenberg football season, by William O ' Shaughnessy 1.

Mud w f I • ‘ V 1 » 4 Good Sports: soccer 83 With new and inexperienced coach Jim Trumbo and the few returning let- termen, the maroon and grey hooters began their season in the intense heat of double session workouts of August and ended in the bitter cold of late Novem- ber. Along the way, the team and the coach gained the much needed maturi- ty and experience that they initially lacked. The 8-8 win loss record that the team compiled included moments of brilliant execution as well as complete blunder. As senior captain Greg Wible comments on the new coach, “1 have to respect the coach for comming in and taking charge as he did, it just takes a little time to get things adjusted.” This inconsistency in performance was in part due to the gaps left by last years graduation class, combined with several costly injuries and some tough bad breaks. As the season progressed however it became clearly evident that the team was having a successful re- building year coming up with several promising freshmen. With the depar- ture of only four senior booters, the Mules can look forward with great ex- pectation to a very bright future. As Chip Wible concurs, “Next year should be a solid team, because they are young and will also have a year of working together under their belts. — Don Chapman — 1.

Good Sports: soccer 85 FUTURE LOOKS GOOD The Mule hooters opened up their season with an impressive 6-4 victory in a non league contest with Fairleigh Dickenson University. Standouts in this game were Jeff Donald, who scores two goals and had assists on three others, Todd Pretz for his fine defensive work, and Robin Moyer for his all around performance. Their second victory in as many starts came against foe Delaware Val- ley. The action was totally dominated by a strong offence, led by Gary Het- trick who scored one of the four goals. The agony of defeat was first tasted at the hands of perennial powerhouse Eli- zabethtown College who crippled the nets for six goals answered by a lone Mule tally. The Muhlenberg hooters got back on the winning trail with a routine 4-1 vic- tory over Wilkes. Jeff Donald, proving to a potent offensive weapon. The Mules met with strong resistence on the road as they dropped consecutive con- test to league rivals Franklin Marshal and Moravian, 4-3 and 2-1 respectively. A bright spot in the season took place at Swarthmore as the underdog Mules upset their hosts 2-1. Tim Austin and Frank Morris each notched a goal and the team was led to victory by the strong goalkeeping of Phil Rittenhouse. Next year should be very good be- cause the solid defense and offense has started to gell and the leadership will be there in Captains Hettrick and Moyer.

Good Sports: men ' s basketball 87 The 1978-79 Muhlenberg College basketball team, led by Co-Captains Greg Campisi and Jim Johnson was characterized by quickness, poise and a balanced scoring attack. The Mule Cagers, following a disappointing 0-4 start, refused to give up and battled their way back to a very respectable near .500 percentage mark. Despite the slow start, Head Coach Ken Moyer felt that, “the players hung in there tough when we were 0-4 and didn’t fold.” Undoubtably the main problem the Mules were confronted with was a de- cided lack of height which Coach Moyer attempted to combat with the use of a four guard offense. Moyer as- serts its success by eluding to the bal- anced scoring and strong rebounding from the smaller players. Along with Johnson and Campisi, Dave Saylor, Scott Becker, and Dan Barletta round- ed out the starting five for much of the Mule season. Barletta, a 6’3” center with excep- tional leaping ability, consistently ranked among the nation’s top ten in field goal percentages. Campisi, John- son, and Barletta each earned positions on the weekly ECAC Division III Hon- or Role. Next years squad promises to be ex- citing and well balanced as only two of the Mules will be lost to graduation, and the jay vee prospects look to be quite solid. — Robert Francis Guida 88 Ciarla HEIGHT HURTS SQUAD The Basketball season started slowly for the Mules, with the first four con- tests belonging to their opponents. The Mules turned it around, however, with a clutch win over Lebanon Vally (62-60). The following week saw the Muhlen- berg squad beat last year ' s national Di- vision III runner up, Widner, in Memo- rial Hall. The Mules accomplished this feat with a well executed second half freeze. The Mules capped off their play in the 1978 year by taking first place in the Moravian College Tournament with a 63-56 effort against the host team. Second semester, the Mules traveled to Virginia to play William and Mary and lose a tough game, followed by a crushing defeat at the hands of Lehigh. Co-Captain Greg Campisi felt that “This was the low point of the season thus far and everyone was forced to pull together and suck it up.” The Mules lost their next game, however, at the hands of Deleware Valley, dropping their record to 6-7. This disappointing loss was followed by an encouraging victory over the ever tough Gettysburg Bullets by a score of 65-64 in overtime. The Mules lost their next 4 games in a row, dropping their record to 7-11 but still refused to quit. They bounced back to defeat both Dickinson and Allentown College before losing again to Albright. Two triumphs over Lebenon Valley and Gettysburg once again lifted the spirits of the Mules as well as their record. -Ben Spinelli 1.

Lauren Anderson, the Sen- ior Co-Captain, Robin Miller, Gail Yurcanin, and Terri Horth are the four seniors to leave behind nine underclass veterans. One of those nine is Becky Davis, who comments, “Cheerleading means something different to every member on our squad. I think this year we successfully tied together everyone’s different outlooks and ideas, and came out with a very happy, cohesive squad that worked great together.” Each fall, tryouts are held to find new talent to replace graduated pepsters. Many girls go up before a panel of judges, which selects the new members for the squad which selects new mem- bers for the squad on the girl’s gymnas- tic ability, voice, appearance, and ex- ecution. When a girl successfully dem- onstrates her ability and becomes one of the squad, her duties include; atten- dance at all home football games, and basketball games, away football games, and the local away basketball games. They provide their transportation for the away games as none is provided by the college. Mrs. Hospodor, the squads adviser, helps the girls with their var- ious routines. When a cheer is created, input comes from every member, and each new idea is accepted or rejected by vote. A cheerleader most importantly should be an avid athletic supportor and should help to initiate a rapport between the fans and the teams. At each game, the squad’s cheers unite the fans and provide the proper sound ef- fects and atmosphere necessary for any athletic competition. Good Sports: cheerleaders 91 1.

Good Sports: girls basketball 93 The 1978-79 Girls Varsity Basketball team was one characterized by inexpe- rience. The squad included only five re- turning letterwinners. However this team made the most of their exper- ience. Second year coach Maryann Seagraves evaluated her squad at the beginning of the season by stating, “Were not big, so we’ll have to make up for it with desire and determination. And so the girls entered the season, knowning that the obstacles that they would have to overcome would be great indeed. In achieving its very respectable re- cord the team was led by Senior Co- Captains Jami Loyd and Dawn Eilen- berger. Jamie handled the point guard duties for the Mules as Dawn rounded out the precision backcourt. The contri- butions to the team effort by these two Seniors was described by Coach Sea- graves as “Invaluable”. Next year’s squad will certainly miss the play of these two “team players” Playing Cen- ter for the Mules was a 6’-l” sopho- more, Lisa Ball. Lisa utalized her height to average 14.2 rebounds per game. Coach Seagraves in choosing a game strategy for the critically short Mules, opted for a defensive oriented plan. This approach seemed to work well for the Mules throughout the 1978-79 sea- son as they effectively exploited the stronger aspects of their game. In effect the team played as if they were just as tall as any of their opponents. Coach Seagraves was very pleased with the play of the team as a whole during the season and could recall only a few occa- sions where the opponent’s height ad- vantage played a crucial role in the con- test. “I’m really looking forward to working with the squad next year.

The men opened up with an encouraging win over the University of Maryland by a score of 18-9. Hal Yeager, Jim Mitilin- eos. Bill Highet, Bob Benn, Steve Ner- enberg and Scott Ross all posted win- ning efforts. The soar in encouragement fell to disappointment as the swords- men went up against a powerful Pater- son team. The squad next traveled to Baltimore for a Tri-meet with Johns Hopkins and NJIT; barely losing out to the latter after a tough match with pow- erful Hopkins. Haverford was the next foe and once again the determined Mules fell in defeat. While Fielding a team of inexperi- enced beginners, this years women put up a very impressive effort in losing. Linda Pinero and Lauren Gordon came away from their bouts victorious. Bill Highat and Mike Goodman pulled out victories for the men. The next match pitted the two teams against Drew Uni- versity. The men’s team were losers in a very tough match. The real story though was the crushing defeat dealt upon Drew by the women’s team. All the women came away with 3-1 victo- ries which were highlighted by the ini- tial collegiate victories for Debbi Perci- val and Donna Kirschmen. The rest of the regular dual meet season passed by uneventfuly, with the women losing to Temple; and the men losing to Temple and Lafayette. The MAC tournement saw the team finish in 9th place overall. The real bright spot though was co- captain Bill Highat’s great performence going all the way to the finals of the tournement, Finishing 3rd. The women’s team showed great determination by putting in long hours of practice for only 3 dual meets. Overall, the 78-79 season saw the team improve its indi- vidual won-lost record over 77-78 and the improvement in skill along with the great determination should prove the outlook for the ‘Berg fencers to be quite bright, by Ben Spinelli 96 Ciarla MULES PUT UP “We had alot of potential with many fine underclassman. It was unfortunate that we just could not put it all togeth- er.” This is how Mule Co-Captain Geoff Brown summed up a disappoint- ing 4-10 season. It was extremely dis- heartening when Senior Bruce Menzer, the other Co-Captain was lost in the fourth match of the season to an injury. After a very slow start, the Mules Grapplers finally began to put the pieces together. Behind the leadership of Co-Captains Brown and Menzer, the Mules rebounded to win 3 of their last 5 matches. Brown was sensational, finish- ing with a personal record of 11-3. In compiling this record he scored 5 pins and 1 superior decision, adding up to 49 team points, a new Muhlenberg record. Junior Mike Strange wrestling in the 1 18 weight class also had an exception- al year as he recorded an 8 and 3 sea- son. One of the seasons highlights and most dramatic matches was the win over Widner. The Mules crushed their opponent as Weis, Brown, and Keough all put their foe on their backs in the first period. The Mules match with Rutgers proved to be an impressive out- ing as the Mules came from behind and scored 24 points in the last 5 bouts to score a team victory. The Mule Grapplers will lose only four to Graduation, Geoff Brown, Bruce Menzer, Jim Weis, and Scott Kurtz. Next year looks promising with the return of Junior Mike Strange as well as other returning wrestlers, as Sophomore Heavy-weight Bill Bispels. Freshman Larry Van Wess also demon- strated excellant potential. Other re- turning wrestlers such as Dan Gardner, George Christ, and Mike Keough should provide a great season next year. These returning Mules, combined with their good attitude and team unity which became evident at the end of the year should promise to provide to fine season next year. 1 .

It was a very hard fought battle to the playoffs however the 1978-79 team managed to squeeze it out. Junior Mark Kwiatkowski led the pitch- ing corps for the squad, posting a 7-0 record during the regular season (6-0 in the Conference) and an excellent 1.44 ERA. Leading the hitting attack for the team was freshman Mike Hiller. Mike led the team with a .345 batting average along with 30 runs scored, 5 doubles and 8 stolen bases. Don Sommerville was able to fill a gap that had been left void for the past 3 years by playing a superior third base. Don also led the Mules in RBI’s with 17. Sophomore Jamie Smith had a good season after a somewhat disap- pointing freshman year. Smith hit .292 and had many key hits, responsible for Mule Victories. John Oberle, “the best center fielder in the Conference” accord- ing to mentor Beildeman fought his way out of a mid-season slump and turned in a good performance. John did not com- mit an error all season long as he an- chored the defense for the Mules. The efforts of these very talented play- ers along with the total team attitude taken by everyone on the squad led to this outstanding season for the Mules. Captain Yogi Edwards felt that Coach Beildeman got the most he possibly could out of his ball players using each player in the most productive manner. Yogi himself had a dissapointing year, first getting injured on the football field and then re-injuring his knee in pre-season baseball drills. Yogi was the lone senior on the squad this year. He believes that this year’s team has a lot of potential and with this year’s experience under their belts can only continue to improve in the future. by Dave Simon Good Sports: baseball 1. “Yogi” congradulates Mike Hiller for another solid hit. 2.

The season started off on a bad note as the team went south and dropped 4 out of 5 pre-season games. The team gained confidence when they crushed Dickenson, behind the strong pitching of Junior Mark Kwiat- kowski and hitting of Sophomore Jamie Smith. The team finally started to be- lieve in itself. An important turning point in the season was the sweeping of Lebanon Valley in a double-header. The first game was won easily behind Kwiatkoski, however the second game was a cliffhanger and was not decided until the bottom of the seventh inning when the Mules squeezed the winning run across the plate. It was at this point in the season that the squad realized they were not quitters and would give it their all. They improved their Conference re- cord to 4-0. After the team split a dou- ble-header with Western Maryland, the Mules upped their record to 5-1 and realized that they had an excellent shot at the Conference Title. The pivitol games of the year were to be in a dou- ble-header against Franklin and Mar- shall. It was a do or die situation for the Mules. If they were to be taken serious- ly they had to show it now. Mark Kwiatkoski pitched another strong game and the Mules squeezed out a victory in the last inning, winning the first game by a score of 3-2. The second game was won easily by the Mules 9 to 2 . The Mules needed only to sweep a double-header from Gettysburg and they would be Conference Champs. If they split with Gettysburg then a dou- ble-header against Moravian would de- cide the Conference. The Mules howev- er did not have to worry about Moravi- an as they swept two close games from Gettysburg and became the MAC Champs. The Play-offs proved to be a real dis- appointment for the Mules as they were out-classed and outplayed b y a strong Widner team.

The 1978-79 Muhlenberg Varsity Golf team endured through disappoint- ing and frustrating season. As Senior Jack McKay stated, “It was a rebuild- ing year for Muhlenberg’s Golf Team, however goals were accomplished along with the valuable experience gained by the squad’s members. Although the Mules salvaged only three victories dur- ing the season, they have high hopes for next year’s campaign, with five return- ing Varsity lettermen. The team’s brightest spot was Scott Waldman, who was the consistent low man and the team’s leader. Scott was honored by his teamates as the “Play- er’s Player” because of his. ability on the links as well as his personification as a golfer. The season highlight came when Waldman, Rich Siegle, Andy Ru- bin, and Chris Cooper attended the Middle Atlantic Conference Cham- pionships. Cooper was the low man for the Muhlenberg contingent with a 73- 93-168 score. The team was unfortu- nately nosed out of a final placing by the tough competition. The three graduating seniors; Ted Bollard, Jack McKay, and Jim Weis will be sorely missed and remembered next season when the Mules will take the links seeking revenge. Reflecting on the past season, Ted Bollard summa- rized the general feelings of the Team. “Although the season was disappoint- ing win wise, everyone enjoyed partici- pating and the seeds were planted which hopefully next years team will reap the benefits .” by John F.X.L. McKeown 104 Ciarla TEAM LACKS DEPTH The 1978-79 Muhlenberg Varsity Lacrosse team encountered untold set- backs and frustrations. Throughout the season the young and inexperienced Mules had trouble conquering its most damaging foe; injuries. The first in a series of critical set-backs came when Co-Captain Don Guida was lost for the entire season. His absence on the field of battle became painfully obvious as the season rolled on. And so this trend continued throughout the year as mi- nor, bothersome muscle pulls and shoulder injuries plaqued the Mule Stickmen. The squad was led by Senior Co-Cap- tain Jeff Dannenberg who combined good stickhandling ability with his su- perior speed and agility. He was recog- nized for his achievments by his team- mates by being voted the Player’s Play- er of the 1978-79 season. Also display- ing great talent and determination were Stu Brown in the goal, Jim Crow, Dave Costa and Frosh standout Scott Lipkin. The Mules began the season with an encouraging 12-11 win over Swarth- more. Dave Costa and Jim Crow both put forth superior efforts in the hard fought victory. The squad then em- barked on a season long slump, fueled largely from the everpresent injuries in- curred by the Stickmen. Despite the rather dismal remainder of the season this team never lost its appetite or de- termination to win. The season proved to be a time to learn, to build a base for the seasons to come.

The team posted impressive victories over Phila- delphia Textile, Swarthmore, Upsala and totally crushed Dickenson. The team’s defeats were always very close and very emotional, it seemed as though the few extra team points needed just couldn’t be bought. Co-Captain Paul Leodorie (of Wake Forest fame) felt the |team “had a lot of strong performances in many different events, however we lacked the depth needed to win over the long spring sea- son.” There were indeed several superi- or individual performances during the season. Kurt Schroeder won the MAC’s in the high jump for the second year in a row. Mike Clinton was the highest point scorer on the team while running the 880 and also making the triple jump. Both Clinton and Schroeder will be next years captains. Co-Captain Ed Sobel had an excellent season keeping the Mules respectable in the sprints. Frosh standout Bill Sharlow estab- lished himself early as one of the top javilin throwers in the league. Another freshmen Bill Hersfield, was hampered all year with injuries but when healthy he performed like a true winner. Bruce Feldbawm and Mark McCarter led the weightmen, while Pete Hough took the position as the lone Mule hurdler. Co- Captain Paul Leodorie, Howie Gerstien and Jim McCormick rounded out the long distance runners. Senior Tom Pro- valosky turned in an excellent season, scoring the second highest amount of points while running in the 440 and mile relays. He was the Player ' s Player award recipiant. Head Coach Flamish provided the team with continous inspiration noting that, “Its always nicer to win.” by Guy Williams Ciarla 114 Football (6-2-1 ) Franklin and Marshall 42- 6 Johns Hopkins 56-20 Western Maryland 15-15 Lebanon Valley 35-15 Ursinus 21- 7 Dickinson 19-14 Swarthmore 16-14 Susquehanna 20- 7 Moravian 34- 0 Cross Country (7-6) Franklin and Marshall 18-40 Moravian 24-30 Dickinson 22-35 Scranton 16-42 Wilkes 28-29 Lebanon Valley 18-37 Albright 1 5-40 Drew 15-45 Kutztown 20-38 Western Maryland 23-34 Widener 21-34 Swarthmore 23-32 Delaware Valley 24-31 Field Hockey (4-3-3) Philadelphia Bible 6-1 Albright 3-2 Delaware Valley 2-1 Lafayette 4-0 Kutztown 0-0 Penn State 0-0 Cedar Crest 7-1 Lehigh 3-0 Moravian 1-1 Drew 1 -0 Soccer (8-8) Fairleigh Dickinson 6-4 Delaware Valley 4-1 Elizabethtown 6-1 Wilkes 4-1 Franklin Marshall 4-3 Moravian 2-1 Swarthmore 2-1 Dickinson 2-1 Western Maryland 5-2 Lafayette 2-1 Lebanon Valley 4-1 Ursinis 1-0 Gettysburg 5-0 Lehigh 2-1 N.J. 1st. of Tech 1-0 Widener 2-1 Wrestling (4-10) Kutztown 6-46 Albright 18-28 Ursinis 12-36 Lebanon Valley 16-30 Scranton 0-47 Swarthmore 9-33 Widener 27-18 Moravian 18-25 Delaware Valley 0-52 Baptist Bible 39- 1 5 Kings 18-25 Haverford 20-25 Upsala 28-20 Rutgers 27-21 Men ' s Basketball (11-14) Lafayette 84-02 W.

INTRAMURALS. Mike Neri, in the Weekly, called intramurals “the real game” without the glory. Although he was referring to football intramurals, “played by people whose only interest is love of the game,” he was right about basketball, track, soccer, volleyball and kickball, also. ATO won the football intramural championship. Basketball IM’s devel- oped to the point of two separate leagues on campus.

Classics such as “Long Train Run- ning,” “Rock Me,” “China Grove” and “It Keeps You Running” had everyone tapping, clapping and dancing, includ- ing guitarist Pat Simmons, who left the stage and joined the audience. Special effects were added to the to- tal spell the Doobies cast. Smoke bil- lowed behind them as they played “Black Water,” and the light show was only surpassed by the final stupefying fireworks display. Flickering matches in the darkness convinced them to do an encore of “Long Train Running” and a second of “Listen to the Music.” A Canadian group, Chilliwack, pre- ceeded the Doobies. Toto, performing in April, created a feeling of wholeness and total control which pervaded the show as the eight polished performers moved the audi- ence expertly. The opening band, Sad Cafe had less stage presence, as seen in their bizarre and unneccesarily vulgar costumes, but they compensated with a good blend of instrumentals and vocals and a varied selection of tunes. Their sensationalism only served to compliment by contrast the classier presentation of the main band, Toto. A flair of special events included the use of dreamy dry ice in “Angela” and a series of slide projections on a mirror. At intervals they snapped everyone back into vibrant reality with tunes such as their rythmically pounding hits, “Hold the Line” and “I’ll Supply the Love.” Both of the songs had the audi- ence on its feet screaming. “Jesus is Just Alright” opened the Doobie Broth- ers’ concert. Lead guitarist and vocalist is Bill Hen- derson. Chilliwack, a Canadian rock group pre- ceeded the Doobies on stage.

PB provided the alternate en- were pure fun. tertainment to fraternity, Benfer or bowl parties. Students looking for a change of pace from studying or frat parties, frequently found a plethora of entertaining activi- ties within their grasp thanks to Pro- gram Board. Once described as “a year- ful of diverse entertainment for all,” this year’s Program Board, under the leadership of president Kim Barth, soon proved the validity of this statement. The Art Committee, Nite Owl, Films Committee, Free University, Publicity Committee and Special Events Com- mittee are the operating divisions of Program Board, and each of them ca- tered to student tastes in different ways. One of the most successful years ever for PB films featured a wide variety of entertaining flicks on the Science Lec- ture Flail’s sliver screen. Such classics as 2001: A Space Odyssey, The French Connection, Doctor Zhivago and The Omen appealed to different groups and brought them in droves for both of the twice-nightly shows. The coffeehouse setting of the Nite Owl played two crucial roles on cam- pus. Not only were the patrons treated to a relaxing evening of good times, but the entertainment was provided by al- most exclusively Berg talent. An occa- sional “Talent Night” helped new per- formers to get their stage legs, while veterans like Karen Hain, Margot Bernstein and Derek and Todd Pretz were familiar faces. Alternate forms of entertainment were explored, including poetry reading by Rich Bernstein and comedy a la Steve Rose. A backgam- mon set, bottle of wine and friendly company made for an exceptional even- ing in the basement of the Admissions House. -Bill O’Shaughnessy PROGRAM BOARD — First Row: Nancy Hubbard, Margaret Levy, Margaretta Frederick, Andrew Teich, Ellen Rocky, Laura Geissler, Lau- ra Csellak.

Many of our mothers could be seen wearing their “Mums for Mom” at the football game — another way that PB made our parents feel more welcome. With the dome freshly lighted to guide all wayward graduates, Home- coming weekend was immeasureably enlivened by two major PB events. On Friday October 29th, the Garden Room of Seegers Union was the scene of the annual MCA PB Ball. Never letting the pace slow down, many of the hoof- ers could be seen at the Casino Night held on Saturday evening in Brown Gym. A bustling crowd captured a pi- rates’ cache of valuable prizes at black- jack tables, dice tables and roullete wheels. The Halloween and Christmas par- ties were both tremendous successes — outlandish costumes on people in Octo- ber and brightening decorations on the Union in December helped take peo- ple’s minds off the books. Establishing the Outing Club and college bowl team were additions to PB list of accomplish- ments. -Bill O’Shaughnessy Folk musicians Bob Benn, Wendy Green, Bill Deibler and jam in a laid-back style.

Council set out to safeguard the best interests of the students. A successful lobbying campaign was helpful in dis- suading the faculty from unionizing. Ra- tional discussion with the registrar led to the extension of the pass fail and drop- add periods to the first ten days of each semester. Council combined with Dean LeCount to clarify the School’s alcoholic beverage policy at a time when it was feared the campus would go dry. Council was also involved in the controversial Honor Code revision discussions. However, not every- thing resulted as Council would have wanted. Prime examples of this frustra- tion were the Calender revision issue, the appearance on campus of the sculpture “Victor’s Lament,” by DiSuvero, and the lack of rapport with Dr. John Morey, president of the college. Council also made student life more pleasant in smaller ways. For instance, the lending of their mimeograph machine to WMUH enabled the radio station to print their play lists, which in turn got free albums for the station. The air was much cleaner in one section of the Gar- den Room thanks to Council’s successful no-smoking proposal. The library dome was lighted almost every weekend throughout the year thanks to Council’s persistence. Pressure on the Center for the Arts staff resulted in more space for student art displays. The highlight of the year came when the Grievance Board submitted its report on campus security. Immediately realiz- ing the importance of this report, Coun- cil submitted it to the Board of Trustees for action. The Boards’ directive man- dating the immediate resolution of many of the problems raised by the report con- firmed the cooperation built up between the board and the student body. The se- curity report was completed by Tim Die- trich. The Student Court is the supreme stu- dent judicial body on campus, responsi- ble for trying all alleged infractions of the Honor Code and Social Regulations. The Court includes a Bench, which con- sists of justices, and the Bar, which con- sists of attorneys and the court clerk. Chief Justice Carl Koplin presided over all trials, which were heard in executive session. This year, the student Court was active in the proposed revisions to the Honor Code and judicial structure of the Col- lege. In this way, many of the Courts ideas and much of it’s experience will be passed on the newly-created Judicial Board, which will come into existence at the beginning of the 1979-80 term. The Muhlenberg Student Lobby is the local chapter of COPUS, a higher-edu- cation oriented lobbying group with headquarters in Washington D. C. Kept informed of Congressional legislation of interest to students, the Student Lobby brought all major issues of this type to Student Council for action to be taken. Annual events included the national con- vention, at which students themselves lobby first hand on Capital Hill, and campus speakers on issues closely related to higher education. -Bill O’Shaughnessy STUDENTS ON THE FACULTY COMMITTEE — First Row: Mike Elwell, Jane Goldsmith, Janet Werner, Beth Jen- kins.

It was written by Thorton Wilder, produced by the Muhlenberg Theater Association; di- rected by Charles Richter. In it you see Mr. Robert Matson, Mr. Robert Percy, Mr. Dave Masenheimer, Miss Lucy Pur- year, Miss Susan Shulman, Miss Kathi Reilly — and many others.” These open- ing lines were delivered by Stage Man- ager Bob Vagias, New Director of The- ater, Charles Richter’s first production, Our Town captivated record-breaking audiences in October. The play is about the everyday life and death of two New England familes. The production was selected as one of eight that competed at the American College Theatre Festival at Penn State in Janu- ary. In addition, senior Bob Vagias and sophomore Lucy Puryear were among forty finalists who competed for individ- ual honors in the Irene Ryan acting com- petition at the festival. Vagias’ perfor- mance captured second place in the com- petition. In order to prepare for the festival, cast and crew members returned to Muh- lenberg one week earlier from winter va- cation, and were housed in the TKE fra- ternity house.

Muhlenberg College’s Summer The- atre Workshop presented William Shakespeare’s classic play “A Midsum- mer’s Night Dream.” The intricate forest fantasy was directed by Susan Kerner from New York, who played Puck as well as instructed the workshop. Students spent four hours a day practicing stage movements, voice, acting, and stage combat. The workshop was sponsored by the Muhlenberg Theatre Program and the Office of Special Sessions. Set and cos- tumes were designed by William Puci- lowsky, resident designer at Cedar Crest College, and lighting was directed by Ron Castlemanc who has also designed for off-off Broadway productions.

The phrase “Anything Goes” is a considerable understatement for the professional handling of the musical by that name which Muhlenberg Theatre Association produced in March. The ambitious project was directed by Charles Richter, director of the the- atre, and boasted sets by Frank Kelly, a New York designer. The orchestra was directed by Henry Schmidt, associate professor of music. The cast consisted of 40 obviously en- thusiastic and talented student actors and actresses. The 1934 lighthearted musical of Cole Porter’s, “Anything Goes,” fea- tured the well-known songs “1 Get a Kick Our of You,” “Friendship,” “You’re the Tops,” and the title song. Bob Vaigas’ imitation of a bluebird tore the audience apart. Sweet, shy Nancy Zehner became another person in Reno Sweeny. With her husky voice and agressiveness, she convinced the viewers that she had sung in nite-clubs all her life. Stellar performances were given by Dave Masenheimer, Rose Long, Steve Lally and Paul Campano.

Below: The man who made “An Elizabethan Fantasy " meaningful: Dr. Harold Stenger. Right and Bottom Right: Producers Vos and Van Eerde. An eclectic arrangement of drama, art, history, literature and music of the Elizabethan age was woven into “An Elizabethan Fantasy” presented in March. Written and produced by Dr. Katherine Van Eerde, head of the histo- ry department, and Dr. Nelvin Vos, head of the English department, the fantasy was invented to honor Dr. Har- old Stenger, a distinguished Elizabe- than scholar and Dean of the College, who taught his popular Shakespeare course for the last time in 1979. The ambitious production revolved around Queen Elizabeth, played by Dr. Van Eerde, in a dialogue with her confi- dant, Lord Burghly. This framework set the background for madrigals, scenes from Udall’s “Ralph Roister Doister,” Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” Marlowe’s “Dr. Faustus” and a flute solo by Joseph Mayes. Refined and at the same time intimate, the fantasy al- lowed for historical background as well as personal glimpses and subtle dramat- ic touches which were charming and original. The stage episodes were di- rected by Mr. Charles Richter. An art display of Elizabethan times organized by Monroe Denton was set up in the Center for the Arts Gallerie. It was lat- er taken to area high schools. The re- ception held after the performance by President and Mrs. Morey for the Dean and his wife ended a generous and gra- cious salute to Dean Stenger. 138 Ciarla “Harry” must’ve said something amusing to Don- na Evans, instructor, and students at the dance workshop.

Beyond the Books: festival of the arts 139 QUITE LIBERAL ART A schmorgasborg of art forms was feasted upon by the college and public during the annual Festival of the Arts celebration. There was something for ev- eryone from the musical connoisseur to the fast-food reader included in the ten day exhibition of abstract art, dance, film production and prose readings. Philip Mullen, a promising young art- ist who described his work as “visual meditation,” kicked off the festival with an “appetizer” of his intricate painted tapestries. For his work, Mullen received 37 awards and grants. The second day of the festival featured “Harry” a dance company led by dynam- ic Senta Driver. Her choreography was distinguishable by its sensual energy as players performed very physical, forceful steps which managed a kind of animal grace. The power at times threatened to unleash itself from the boundaries of art, but was held in check by the control of each member. Although brawn was em- phasized, brains must be credited for the tottering, breathtaking balance between energy and restraint. Transferring from the realm of person- al dance to the public realm of movie- making, the festival hosted Robert Wise, an Academy Award winning director. Among his most famous movies are “The Body Snatchers”, “Run Silent, Run Deep,” “Andromeda Strain,” “West Side Story,” “The Sound of Music,” and the “Hindenberg”. He was working on “Star Trek — The Motion Picture” at the time of the lec- ture. Besides the free showings of three of his movies “Curse of the Cat People,” “Executive Suite” and “The Haunting,” he hosted workshops and a lecture on the making of a movie. Switching art forms once again, the Festival invited song-and-dance men Cumming and Phraner. Their musical talent was accompanied by their sharp wit. An informal crafts day was held in the C.A. while an amateur magician enter- tained with the usual tricks of his trade. That night, campus poets read a sprin- kling of original poetry as well as poetry of Allen Ginsberg. The next day, Gary Styeigerwalt, a classical pianist and the first American to win the Liszt-Bartok Piano Competi- tion in Budapest, gave two classes and a recital. An unusual company of three, called appropriately “Threeater,” read horror stories by masters of fear, Poe, Sake and Churchill but produced only mind reac- tions. The last performer was Allen Gins- berg, an aged Yippie who once partici- pated in Yippie Conventions, Flower Power Marches and wrote anti-establish- ment poetry. He read some of the poetry for which he was brought to trial on ob- senity charges. Sometimes emotional, sometipies shocking and sometimes dis- gusting, Ginsberg epitomized the spirit of the 60’s. — Barb Robertson A week before the festival, Philip Mullen could be displayed.

Although the booze project, sponsored the the “Nights of Campus” program through the Administration Office, with Nacho Cheese and the Banjo, and a spe- cial appearance by Beatnick Stick, was very successful. Hen House fame came with Bowl Parties. Guaranteed to to de- stroy every available brain cell.

Bernheim, the German language house, aimed to bring German culture alive. The highlight of the year was “Ger- man Week” in November, which consist- ed of a series of concerts, films, and lec- tures followed by receptions at the house. Eve Elizabeth House not only boarded but also educated, her occupants. The House sponsored an extensive speaker’s series to increase student awareness of post-academic life. These included a Rape Crisis Center to a lecture on on tax considerations and planning by H R Block. In addition, the November burglary of Eve Elizabeth House brought to light the i ncreased need for adequate security on campus. As a result of the residents’ out- cry against the administration, the col- lege was forced to give more attention to the problem of security. Beyond the Books: houses 141 HOME Steph Anderson basks.

The French Club spon- sored a slide show, a discussion night for students considering a junior year abroad, and two films: “La Grande Illu- sion” and “Ze Petit The atre de Jean Renoir.” Field trips included a visit to Philadelphia to see an exhibit of art from the Napoleonic era, and to New York to watch Debussy’s opera “Pelleas et Meli- saude.” The French Club participated in the ODK Carnival, and, along with the other language clubs, treated the campus to delectable tastes at an international Dessert Night. The club’s most ambitious project was the production of “Le Jeu d’Adam,” a twelfth century mystery play detailing the Biblical account of the creation and fall of man. “The Play of Adam” was directed by language instructor Patricia DeBellis, an enthusiastic actress during her undergraduate career. Victor Thompson portrayed God, Stuart Schnall and Nancy Hamlin took the roles of the ill-fated couple, and Lynne Underwood appeared as Satan. The oldest club on campus is Der Deutsche Verein — Muhlenberg ' s Ger- man club of forty members. Among the year’s activities were a faculty Christmas party, an Oktoberfest, and a Fashingfest, a traditional donut-eating celebration be- fore Lent. “German Week” in mid-No- vember was a series of concerts, films, and lectures followed by receptions in Bernheim, the German language house. tit Club officers are president Ann Gardner, vice president Eszter Szabo, and secre- tary-treasurer Karen Meyer. The Russian Club consists of thirty members, including president Elizabeth Grosse and secretary Jill Guidroz. Three speakers provided first hand accounts of the U.S.S.R. Dr. Yuri Bocharov, a lead- ing figure in Soviet city planning, spoke favorably about his country, while dissi- dent authors Arkady Lvov and Victor Muravin were not so kind. Besides hear- ing lectures, the club viewed a slide pre- sentation, and traveled to New York for Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin,” an op- era based on a novel by Alexander Push- kin.

Meeting in small groups, providing manuals, maps, M-books and pigbooks helped a little; however, nothing can substitute for face to face confronta- tions. The orientation committee, led by the admissions staff, organized activi- ties and introduced freshmen to the Union, CA, and dorms. The library came later. Resident advisers took over after the initial week. New problems, such as panty raids, worms in showers, fire drills, and black-outs arose and were calmly overcome. Upperclassmen depended on RA’s as an information source. The storage room key was a popular RA possession. RA’s attended training sessions on alcohol, drugs, birth control, rape, crisis intervention and career counseling and passed on the information. An Orientation of their own was re- quired. This took place spring semester. RA’s were evaluated and attended weekly meetings within each dorm. — Cathy Robertson Behind President John Morey ' s house, redcoats Lynn Vogel show the contrast of anxiety and confi- serve freshman outdoor luncheon.

The phrase is so fa- milar it has become part of the Muhlen- berg vocabulary. It literally means the annual money-raising festival of the Omicoron Delta Kappa Honorary Leadership Fraternity. It also meant the chance to let it all out on the last day of classes to celebrate, to take a break before finals and have fun as well as raise money for The Wiley Home for Mentally Disabled Children. Each spring the elected members of ODK put their organizational talents to work and recruit clubs and fraternities to participate in the money-raising fes- tival. These groups then set up booths featuring Italian ice, ballons, buttons, a graphitti board, pie throwing and pic- ture sales. An acution, picnic dinner and the ever-popular Happy Hour rounded out the day. Last year’s 450 dollar donation went to the Lehigh Valley Association for Retarded Children.

At the annual fall concert, held on November 18, the Muhlenberg College and Allentown communities were treated to works by Franz Schu- bert, Gustav Holst, and Carl Orff, among others. Band director Ronald Demkee was assisted by guest conduc- tor Ibrook Tower in the performance. Even more successful was the spring concert, which included Handel’s “Wa- ter Music Suite” and Haydn Wood’s “Marinin Veen.” A combined concert with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was held at Muh- lenberg on April 8. Previously, the sixty members had traveled to Troy, N.Y. as the first part of the collaborative pro- gram. Free admission to the concerts en- abled anyone to attend.

The choir also held a retreat in the fall and spring at the YWCA camp in Hamburg and the Pocono Environmen- tal Educational Educational Center. There they enjoyed both canoeing in the fall and skiing in the spring. Members of the choir were required to read a note and identify its tones with accompaniment.

Solos and duets also spotlighted out- standing talent throughout the concert. “Twins Theme” was accompanied by guitarists Brian Marion and Carol Eke- zian. Overall, the choreography was diffi- cult because of the wide range of talent. The finale, danced to “One” from “A Chorus Line” featured just that.

Their routines “sparkled " with swing flags and silver fringes on the ends of the batons. Enthusiastic freshman members put their talents to use choreographing the squad’s routine to “Tonight.” Feature twirler Trudy Fetterhoff, also in a new uniform, entertained the crowd for a second year with her acrobatic twirling. The group gave their first off-the-field performance when they marched in the Allentown Halloween parade. They also traveled to Moravian College to perform at their first away game. The pom-pom squad added both beau- ty and talent to the half-times at the foot- ball games. Routines, choreographed by captain Alex Hightower, were performed WORK to music. Highlights included increasing membership, marching in the Allentown parade, and performing away at Moravi- an College. One practice was brightened up by a flaming pom-pom, when a squad member lit her poms in place of a cigarette. The squad practiced nightly for an hour and the work paid off — the perfor- mances were spectacular. Colorguard captained by Rita Cutruf- fello expanded their ranks from six to ten girls and boasted new uniforms - skirts sewn by Mrs. Cutrufello and vests (“hand-me-downs” from Parkland.) Drills were more intricate and followed the band music. It took a lot more practice and caused a few more scratches and bumps but the results made it worthwhile. They also marched in the Halloween Parade and at Moravian College. Mentally practicing the routine Rita Cutrufello and Holly Brunninger approach the field.

Bible studies and discussions were held Tues- days, Eucharist services every Thurs- day, and a fellowship, conducted to strengthen social and religious bonds, on Sunday nights. In addition, the MCA hosted bi- weekly meetings on Mondays with speakers from different faiths. The highlights of the year included a and watermelon night and the Harvest Moon Ball held October 27, for which ballroom dancing lessons were given two weeks ahead of time. Hillel is a religious organization sponsored by B’nai-Brith and Student Council. Its main purpose is to provide members with the opportunity to identi- fy with Judaism in a social, cultural, intellectual, and religious atmosphere. It is an active member of the Feder- ation of Hillels which includes chapters from Lehigh, Cedar Crest, Kutztown, Albright, Moravian, and Lafayette. Some of the most memorable events during the year included a disco, a deli- dinner, a picnic in the park, and a bagel brunch. One of the most active organizations on campus, the Cardinal Key Club pro- vided volunteers throughout the year. A mainstay of the organization was giving tours and day-on-campus ' s. They also participated in Epsy Day, the Doobie Brothers concert, and the Festival of the Arts. In appreciation for their ser- vices, the Admissions Office sponsored a picnic for the club in May.

Approximately 910 follow- ers, the majority — black, of the People’s Temple Commune of Georgetown, Guyana, committed mass suicide and murder in November of 1978. Jim Jones, the spell-binding leader and instigator of the deaths, died of a shot gun wound in the head. The bizarre castrophe began with an investigation by the late congressman Leo Ryan. President Carter launched a wage-price guidelines program to stabilize the wavering economy. Recent findings, affirmed that the American dollar buys half as much as it did eleven years ago, and prices have risen 8.9%. In foreign affairs: On advice from the President, the Senate passed the Panama Canal treaties. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and his soviet counter- part Andrei Gromyko brought the SALT pact agreement to the brink of success. The Shah of Iran had to appease uprisings of Moslem religious leaders who had opposed his liberalization program to Westernize the predominantly Moslem state. Aided by Breshnev and Carter, the United States and China linked to serve world peace. It was agreed that Coke would be the official cola of China, and on a more serious note, congress planned legislation to continue the protection of an arms sales to Taiwan. Israeli-Egyptain treaty-negotations were discussed at Camp David. President Carter, Anwar Sadet, and Menachem Begin arrived at the first formal recognition of the Jewish State by any of its Arab neighbors since the creation of Israel in 1948. Former Prime minister of Israel Golda Meir died December 8, 1978 at the age of eighty. With an iron-will, she led Israel through the tough trials from 1969 thru 1974. The United States lost a great woman, also, when the anthro- pologist Margaret Mead died November 1 5, 1 978 from cancer at the age of 76. On November 8, 1978 Norman Rockwell died at the age of 84. The famous artist portrayed an America for all Americans. “I annouce to you with great joy: We have a Pope. " These words rang out twice from Rome in a time span of less than two months as the world witnessed the demise of two Popes and the coronation of the first non-Italian Pope since 1522. The papacy is the world ' s oldest continuing institution with 700 million supporters worldwide in the Roman Catholic Church. The sudden death of pope Paul VI on August 6, 1978 stunned the world. His successor, John Paul I, reigned only 33 days until his death on September 28, 1978. Pope John Paul II reigns as the 264th Pope. Coming from Poland, a communist country of Eastern Europe, he became on October 21, 1978 the first Pope to hold a news confer- ence. England claimed the first successfull test tube baby when Louise Brown was born. Dr. Daniel Nathans, Hamilton O. Smith (both Americans) and Werner Arber of Switzerland won Nobel prizes in medicine for work done in the field of DN A research. The University of California school lost a Supreme Court ruling to Allen Bakke who had sued the school in an admissions controversy. Bakke charged that the school ran a preferential admissions program for minorities. Bakke started at the med school in the fall of 1978, five years after he had applied. The Noble prize in Physics was won by Dr. Arno Penzias and Dr. Robert W. Ellson (both of Bell Telephone Laboratories). They provided evidence that the universe began with an explosion of a primordial fireball.

Nonethe- less, students remained cheerful. “It was a pretty rotten deal, and I still feel that the college hasn ' t compensat- ed us adequately. ” So said freshman Seth Luben describing his unorthodox living situation at the beginning of the year. The admission office issues accep- tances to incoming freshmen with the expectation that some will decide to go to other schools. However, in 1978 an unusally high percentage of those accepted, chose Muhlenberg. Coupled with decreased attrition of upperclassmen, this led to a campus housing shortage, making it necessary to construct an annex to Prosser Hall. But while the addition was being built there were approximately forty fresh- men males without a place to live. Because his home is in nearby Bethelem, Brad Dornish was asked to commute. Earlier, he had heard rumours about a housing crunch. “At the end of June,” Brad commented, “I asked if there would be any trouble about housing, and they (the administration) said there wouldn’t.” Eight other boys were also asked to commute. In housing the rest, the college utilized its utmost ingenuity. The majority, along with four upperclassmen volunteers, were placed in the Deli Saloon Inn on Cedar Crest Boulevard, six others had rooms in the Hotel Traylor, 1444 Hamilton Street. Some were fortunate enough to be housed on campus in the infirmary or the Martin Luther apartment. Additional homes were created out of Prosser study and typing rooms. “A dingy place,” was the residence of Dave Shevitz, i. e. the Deli Saloon. “It had all the facilities to live; I ' ll give it that much. But, sometimes the bus didn’t show up, which made it even harder because you had to walk to school. It limited us socially .... You’re deprived of the campus atmosphere.” However, he notes that “The management was nice. Probably nicer to us than we were to them because of the resentment at staying there.” Dan Berek and Mike Mazzeo were boarded on campus in the infirmary and one of Prosser’s third floor typing rooms, respectively. They encountered unique difficulties of their own. As Mike recalls: “There were no windows: the room was all white. I needed a fan because there was no ventilation, I was living alone, so I had to go out and meet people.” Berek was one of the luckier freshmen, because the infirmary was the nicest of the makeshift accomodations. Large rooms, carpeting, private bathrooms, air- conditioning and kind nurses provided all the comforts of home. Summing up, Dan said, “It was a nice place to live for its privacy and peace and quiet. " The exiled freshmen were finally able to enter the regular campus community on November 5, when the Prosser addition was opened three weeks after the projected date of completion. Rooms in New Prosser (or Prosser East on the Prosser Annex as it is variously known) are the same size as those in the old section but have the advantages of moveable furniture, bunk beds and individual thermostats. Another campus issue began earlier than the student housing difficulties. A law suit involving charges of sexual discrimination was brought against Muhlen- berg College in 1975 by Connie Rae Kunda, a physical education instructor. Mrs. Kunda had been denied tenure and promotion to an assistant professorship ostensibly on grounds that she did not hold a master’s degree. However, Muh- lenberg bylaws allow the substitution of a “scholarly equivalent” — i. e. a certain amount of skill and experience — for a master’s degree in the physical education department. Mrs. Kunda possesses this equivalent. Also, assistant professor Ronald Lauchnor, who had been hired after Mrs. Kunda, acuired his position even though he possess only a bachelor’s degree. (con’t) These Times 171 Although Mrs. Kunda won the case, the college was not explicitly found guilty of sexual discrimination. The judge’s decision was based on Dr. John H. Morey’s not properly advising Mrs. Kunda about the necessary qualifications to obtain tenure, and recommending the board of trustees to not grant her tenure or promotion. The board of trustees took responsibility for Dr. Morey’s actions. The court ordered that Mrs. Kunda be given back pay, and reinstated at Muhlenberg as an assistant professor contingent upon completion of her mas- ter’s degree. She has returned to the college. The college has appealled the case. A movement arose among the faculty for unionization. Collective bargaining occurred to a certain portion of teachers as a solution to the poor relations between faculty and administration. Dr. Richard Hatch, the main voice of this group, repeatedly declared that professors’ salaries were not the major problem. While desirous that the personel committee give its reasons in rejecting requests for pay increases, the faculty was more interested in having a greater say in determining Muhlenberg policies and budget priorities. Some of the rest of the faculty held these goals just as highly but felt that collective bargaining was not the way to achieve them. Dr. Edwin R. Baldrige Jr. made several points about the nature of unions: they inevitably cause tuitions to rise; strikes are their only weapon, and since most faculty members said they were against striking, a union would be ineffectual; the PSEA, the professional organization that had been proposed to advise the union, would gradually come to have an undue influence over the faculty. The Muhlenberg administration maintained an anti-union position. In addi- tion to echoing Dr. Baldrige’s caution about the effect of unions on tuitions. Dean Stenger emphasised the great harm a strike would cause the college and how it could conceivably destroy Muhlenberg. The student council vacillated throughout the course of the issue. It was in sympathy with some of the faculty’s complaints, but the matter of tuition made it impossible for the council to support unionization. Finally, the decision was made for neutrality. The possibility of unionization, the cause of so much temper and anxiety, died abruptly when it was defeated in a faculty vote of 42 to 37. But the suggestion was made by Dr. Baldrige that the issue could return to life if basic grievances remained unsettled. Tension between faculty and administration did not cease with the trouble over unionization. Before that, Muhlenberg College’s denial of tenure to assis- tant history professor Dr. Joel D. Seigle generated a problem. The case took on frightening proportions with Dr. Seigle’s accusation that the college discrimi- nated against him because he is a Jew. The administration cited a change in demand from modern European to American historians as the reason for Seigle’ dismissal. Seigle claims he is capable of teaching American history. After appealling unsuccessfully to the Faculty Personnel Committee, Dr. Stenger and Dr. Morey, Professor Seigle turned to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He felt that despite the college’s stated reasons, anti-Semitism was the actual cause of his dismissal. While being interviewed for tenure, explains Dr. Seigle, “my religion was questioned.” A segment of the student body, as well as faculty members, sides with Dr. Seigle; a petition asking the administration to reevaluate its decision was circu- lated by Ben Wilfond and Nancy Zehner. Others feel Dr. Seigle’s claims are unfounded and that he is just making trouble. Regardless of which side is correct Dr. Seigle will no longer be with the college in the fall. Pub nights came under attack. A 1.1 million dollar law-suit occurred at Delaware Valley College because liquor obtained at a campus party was respon- sible for a car accident which paralyzed a student. Dean LeCount, anxious to avoid this happening at Muhlenberg, suspended pub nights and formed a student committee to consider the problem. Among the recommendations ar- rived at by the committee were that students should be reminded of the illegality of alcohol consumption in Pennsylvania by persons under 21, college functions should always have non-alcoholic beverages available and that only Muhlenberg students and their guests should be permitted at college functions. These accept- ed, Dr. LeCount allowed pub nights to resume. Further help in the problem of campus drinking was provided by an Alcoholic Task Force headed by Dean Anne Wright to inform students about alcohol’s effects. — Charles H. Pierson MEMORANDUM April 2, 1979 To: All Members of the Muhlenberg Com- munity From: The Dean of the College Subject: The Situation at Three Mile Island Nuclear Reactor The college has been in touch with the appropri- ate authorities in order to plan actions in response to any eventuality or need. While we do not antici- pate any emergency at this point, we are prepared for two possible courses: 1. To service as a reception point for people evacuated from the vicinity of the reactor. 2. To close the college and arrange transporta- tion to safe areas should such a course be warrant- ed. At this tiome, we do not think it likely that either of these actions will become necessary. Classes will continue to meet on schedule and all other campus activities will proceed as planned. The college plans to monitor the situation round the clock, and you will be informed promptly if there is any change. We ask for your cooperation in preventing the spread of rumors which can only complicate a situation that we expect to see re- solved without difficulty in the near future. Alert- ness and calm are the present need. Harold L. Stenger, Jr. Dean on the College VICTOR’S LAMENT General Pete, as everyone knows, faces the library, his back turned to the field between the main walk and the Center for the arts. This is fortunate. Were the old fellow ever to look around, he would receive a severe shock. Standing not far from the General is one of Muhlenberg ' s newest residents: a ten ton, coal-black monument called Victor’s Lament. Traditionally the steel girders and wire of which Victor’s Lament is constructed were not proper materials for art, but they are tremendously appropriate in the technological society. Victor’s Lament is the brainchild of forty-six year old sculptor Mark diSu- vero. Born in Shanghai, he and his parents came to the United states because of anti-Semitism and fascism. In 1960 Mr. d iSuvero’s legs and back were crushed in an accident related to his work. A year later, diSuvero had recovered in spite of predictions that he would be crippled for the rest of his life. Pieces by diSuvero have been seen at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art. In terms of money, the sculpture is worth some $64,000, but its admirers will surely contend that its true value cannot be thus calculated. It comes free to Muhlenberg due to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Berman, two Allen- town art collectors, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The selection committee included Muriel Berman, Center for the Arts designer Philip John- son and Dr. John Morey. Students who resented having no voice in choosing the piece, sardonically dubbed it “diSuvero’s erection. " Linda Weintraub of the art department, believes that Victor ' s Lament will probably be a symbol of Muhlenberg for years to come. What would General Pete say to that? — Charles H. Pierson ISSUES 172 Ciarla I FAREWELL While greeting freshmen and first year faculty and adminis- trators, Muhlenberg bid farewell in ’79 to men whose contribu- tor now belong to “those times.” Dr. Ludwig Lenel has been a faculty member for 27 years, including 1 1 years as chairman of the music department. He earned a diploma from the Conservatory of Music in Switzer- land, and a master of music from Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio. During his years at the college, he has composed a wide variety of choral and instrumental music. Dr. Henry M. M. Richards joined the Muhlenberg faculty as professor of economics and dean of the college in 1954. He served as head of the economics department from 1956 through 1974, when he was named senior professor. A 1932 graduate of Muhlenberg, he completed graduated studies at New York University. Dr. Richards is a direct descendent of Henry Melchior Muh- lenberg, patriarch of the Lutheran Church in America. Dr. Harold L. Stenger, who joined the Muhlenberg faculty in 1946, earned his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. A member of Phi Beta Kappa, he headed the English department from 1956 until 1975, when he was named dean of the college. Following his retirement from the teaching faculty, he will continue in his position as dean. Dr. John E. Trainer, a 1953 graduate of Muhlenberg, has been a faculty member since 1939. His M.S. and Ph.D. were earned at Cornell University. He served as department head from 1962 through 1965 when he was named senior professor. Dr. Trainer is an authority on birds native to the Lehigh Valley. The Muhlenberg College Natural Science Museum was re- named in honor of the professor. During his 40 years on the Muhlenberg faculty, he was a leader in the growth and develop- ment of the college’s extensive botanical and zoological collec- tions. The museum is now known as the John E. Trainer Biology Museum. Stepping Out 173 Chapter 7 Stepping Out 174 Ciarla h I I I i I Over the years, there have been a few things which have stuck out in my mind. The first was the tinges of homesickness I felt when my parents left after they dropped me off freshman year. The next was the family atmosphere. Then, there was the first time I called home (collect) — I was part of the family, but I was also my own person now. The only other thing which struck me as memorable was the panty raid. Who could forget the bizarreness of that tradition. Second semester I realized I knew more people’s names than I thought I had (and more people knew me than I thought did). Suddenly time flew by — everything else was blurred — the standing- room only crowd for watching The Sound of Music in Walz T.V. room, candlelight services, choir trip to England, waiting for a washer (and dryer) and ending up with soaking-wet, soapy clothes, the opening of the Center for the Arts, trick or treating in Benfer, moving from Walz to Brown to Benfer to East — many events which mark my passage through ’Berg. Now, graduation will be a beginning to a new record of memories. Stepping Out 175 Stewart G. Abrams Brian E. Alnutt Steven R. Alspach Robert W. Altemose Eugene H. Ammon Kristine M. Anderson Lauren C.

The goal of $40,000 seemed a bit much for even the most optimistic senior. Nevertheless, by the “100 Days till Graduation Party” of February 16h, the Senior Class had raised a record breaking total of over $46,000, which is $10,000 more than the Class of 1978’s record. Two groups of people were instrumental in the success of the Pledge Drive. The first group is composed of the sixty or so seniors who acted as canvassers, whose hard work was the key to success.

The academic procession ended in the Chapel. Convocation, a celebration by the professors and the students, had begun. Many students were honored for academic and extracurricular work. Unfortunately, their names and awards are too numerous to mention here. Congratulations to you for your fine work and contributions to the Muhlenberg community. Two members of the class should be noted for doing the impossible. Both Bruce Foreman and Joy Weinstein finished their college career with a perfect 4.0 average. That is an accomplishemnt of which to be proud. Another celebration of senior accomplishment was the Phi Beta Kappa dinner honoring those students who qualified for election to the fraternity. To qualify, one must make both academic and extracurricular contributions. Stepping Out 179 David A. Cohen Rosemarie E. Colalillo Donald E. Conrad Marc J. Cooper Cynthia W. Crossley Rita J.

Ginsberg Mitchell R. Goldblatt Steppin Out 181 March 24th was the last big night for the seniors until graduation — it was the Senior Ball. For many, the night began at about 5:30 in various rooms across campus even though the Ball didn’t begin until 8:00. After the Pre-Ball pictures and toast, it was off to the Holiday Inn West. The only thing to mar the evening was a downpour — marked by the guys getting the cars and bringing them to the door to pick up their dates. Once at the Holiday Inn we checked our umbrellas and jackets. Groups mingled in the entrance while waiting for their dates to park the cars. Dinner was served at 8:00. We had a choice of red snapper or prime ribs. The band, August, started to play at 10:00. The dance floor filled quickly — to the point where elbows bumped if you moved more than a foot in either direction. Music was piped in during the breaks. At one of them, Andy presented the class gift to Dr.Schlecht. Gifts were also presented to the class officers. The band stopped at 1:00 with “Round-about.” After saying goodbyes, couples filed out of the room, carrying their brandy sniffers and centerpieces. Formal Fun Ciarla XDectations A few people have next year all planned out. Others haven’t the slightest idea of what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. Some are still waiting — waiting to hear from medical schools, graduate schools, law schools, dental schools, etc. And the waiting “kills” you. Everyday I went to my • mailbox looking for a letter. All I got was rejections from schools who stated that I was out of state and they had to take in-state students first. I started to skip visiting the mailbox on weekends. Then I didn’t care if I went every third day. That was the feeling I had on The Day. I couldn’t decide if I should just go back to my room after class or go to the school store. Well, the school store won out; and, of course, I stopped at my mailbox. Nothing. Except one letter for me. From the University of Pennsylvania. I didn’t want to open it until I realized that it was a thick envelope. They wouldn’t send a rejection in a thick envelope. I tore it open, read the First few sentences and (literally) ran back to my room to call home. Accepted!! Of course, this called for a party, Beer champagne, onion dip — a once in a lifetime opportunity. At last I didn’t have to worry about “What do do after school.” Senioritis here I come!

Jones Stepping Out 185 It wasn’t until after finals were over that it hit me — I was never going to take another class or test at ’Berg again! The east side of campus celebrated with a bon fire. Anybody with unwanted notebooks and old furniture could aid the cause. The next day three- fourths of the school had left — it was an eerie feeling to walk into the quad and see dark windows in Martin Luther and East where there used to be lights. Most of the seniors went to the shore for Senior Week. Some sunburn helps make the graduation robes look more impressive. It was also easier to party at the shore where the clubs cater to our crowd. Other popular places to go were camping or down South. A few spent the week at home — at least they got good meals. The week ended with the class party — eleven kegs! But first we had graduation practice. The excitement equaled the chaos. Here and there were a few tears — of happiness and sadness — as we were soon to leave our friends. The Alumni Association had a barbeque for us. Then the party! Kegs, music, cold cuts — all on the Mall. lberty Ciarla I 186 Dreamland This whole day seemed like a dream. All the seniors were gathered outside of Memorial — laughing and chattering. The doors opened at 2:00 and a seemingly unending sea of people entered the gym. Everyone sat in the bleachers on the West side. This was reminiscent of fresh- men year when we sat in the same place and listened to a pep talk from our president-pro- tem., Holly Kinchelly. This time Dr. Smart gave the speech. Besides finding out what we were to do the next day, we learned about the research in which he was charge concerning “erectane” and “climaxane”. My main thought was how familiar many of the faces were. There were a few whom I didn’t recognize, but I felt strangely close to the major- ity. Somehow, 1 think these past four years were all worth it. mm 187 Stepping Out Robert E. Jones Evelyn L. Kamprad Allen W. Karsh Sharon G. Kassan Jeffrey M. Kauffman Lisa J.

Maguire Stepping Out 189 InsDiration We have noted the changes in Muhlenberg . . . but what about the changes within ourselves? You may think, “I haven’t changed any.” Well, maybe not from day to day, but you must have changed some since freshman year. Look at your tastes in music. Notice how you party. Your relationships with others — have they taken on a different, deeper meaning? This whole idea may sound corny; but you have to see that it is true. Now we are ready to take on aspects we weren’t completely sure how to handle before. Our spending money no longer comes from Mom. Co-ed dorms no longer seem such a shock. The sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realized you just slept through a class no longer is there. Everything has become integrated into the feeling of coming into our own. The only thing we may regret is the amount of junk we have accumulated over the years. Perhaps we also feel bad about not making Dean’s List all eight semesters, but college isn’t only for learning about Physics, French, Crit. Brit., or Colloquim. We also learn about ourselves at parties and in one-to-one relationships. The cum doesn ' t reflect our knowledge — only our test grades. 190 Ciarla Class meetings were held every Wednesday night at 6:30 (6:15 our senior year due to evening classes). Here we discussed the fate of the class dances, pledge drive, Senior Ball, pub nights, and many other pertinant ideas. Generally at most fifteen people, besides the class officers, would attend the meetings. This year the class has Andy Hutter, Carol Ekizian, Allison Koerner, Lauren Anderson and Mark Schwartz (among the few) to thank for the success of the many ventures. The last meeting was one of the more memorable ones. We commented on our graduation speakers and the night-before-graduation party. The meeting began with a champagne toast to everybody’s success in the future and ended on a note, not of finality, but of expectation and hope. Stepping Out 191 Timothy G. Maher Mark S.

The next step was to fill out a form stating your achievements and activities, thus demonstrating why you should be selected to this society. On several different days, a committee discusses all of the applications and decides whom to elect to this honor. This year the following were selected: (first row) Anne Rukakoski, Allison Koerner, Valerie Phillips, Nancy Thornberry, (second row) David Borislow, Rich Romeo, Mark Schwartz, Elise Mendelman, Ken Ryder, (third row) Darla Heivy, Karen Hain, Carol Ekizian, and Mitch Goldblatt. 194 Ciarla IntrosDection I took a little poll of what different seniors thought it meant to be a Senior. Here are the most common answers. Many people said that they felt excitement for the future but also melancholy about the past. One harried senior stated that it was getting the Senior Research Projects done. Another common response was that they were wondering how they were going to be able to adjust to home life again. Several people answered that it meant making your own parties — frat parties really aren’t that important anymore. Another person answered that it was studying the least and doing the same. On the whole, everybody agreed that being a Senior meant that there was more to life than Muhlenberg. They also felt that now was the time for finding the “right perspective” about one’s life.

Besides the drinks and companionship, many members attempted to make a bull’s eye at the dart board, beat townies at Fussball, or win games from the pinball machines. At a few tables people dared others to eat crackers full of horseradish or passed the hot peppers around. A few brave souls went down to Tuxedo Junction to try their skill at disco-dancing. The last Pub Night was held at Bill Daniels’ Rock Palace. The entire place was for our class and the professors who had the courage to join us. The dance floor was filled as the party atmosphere prevailed. All of the Pub Nights were a success. Tradition at Muhlenberg will never die. I 98 Ciarla mally It didn’t hit me that I was graduating until the invitations and announcements arrived (finally) and Andy sat in the Union handing them out. Of course, the company messed up the orders and he had to figure out who got how many invitations. That night I addressed them all — it seemed to take forever. Even having my senior portrait taken (remember sitting for an hour waiting for the photographer!) wasn’t as final as sending the announcements. The only other thing that made me realize I was graduating occurred as I packed. Everything was in boxes and bags except the presents for a few friends. The boxes looked so forlorn. My only thought was to get them into the car as quickly as possible. Last to be removed from the walls were a few graduation cards recently found in my “before- always-empty” mailbox. This is it — this is really it! Stepping Out 199 Carla A. Snyder Edward B. Sobel Barbara A. Solt Pamela S. Specht Heather Sperduto Jeannie Stark Marianne L. Steele Jeffrey J. Steiner Fred W.

We’ve enjoyed the fellowship of those who travelled this road with us. Now we each shall take a separate path at the fork we have come upon. For some of us this new path leads to jobs. Many will enter into their new lives with the partnership of a spouse. Others go on to further schooling and will meet this fork again. This section shall end with a toast — a toast to our new fortunes, a toast to continuing friendships, a toast to life ahead. To you, Class of 1979 — may you succeed in all of your endeavors. Proiections 20 . Ciarla Culmination Testing ... 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... testing. That’s what woke me up on the morning of Sunday, May 27. Still groggy (from the party of the night before) I realized what day it was and stumbled to the shower. After dressing in my robe and attempting to figure out how the drape fitted, I left for the Union to find my place in the proces- sion to the Baccalaureate Service. Of course it started to rain after the class had lined up! So we walked to Memorial and waited there. The service was short and sweet. The Reverend Lloyd E. Sheneman gave the sermon. The class met for the final time at 2:15 in Memorial to line up for the procession. It seemed to take Mrs. Hospodar forever to line us up, and even longer for the line to start moving. As I entered the gym, I looked for my parents and friends. Bob Vagias gave the speech for the Class of 1979. His oration received a standing ovation — an impressive honor for an admired and respected man. Michael Novak gave the address. His topic concerning the institution of the family was relevant to many of us. Then came the moment. Mrs. Hospodar ad- vanced down the rows, letting each row out at the correct time. I walked down my row to the stage. My name was called I climbed the stairs to the sound of clapping, walked across the stage, shook President Morey’s hand as I took my diploma, and went down the stairs — all without trip- ping! All that waiting, and it was over so fast! After the Benediction, there was alot of hugging, kissing, cheering, and clap- ping. As Bob stated, “Look at the person to your left, look at the person to your right, look at yourself — Congratulations! You made it!

My suitcases, trunks, bookstore bags and boxes are unpacked and everything is back in its place. From my appearance you’d never be able to tell that I’ve belonged to a community called Muhlen- berg. I can remember my niave impressions as a first semester freshman, I’ve kept some of them, and considerably revised others. Memories of the past year, 78-79, are the most vivid. My chronicle is finished now. General Pete and I saw quite a lot. None of it can happen again. In some cases, that’s fortunate; in others, it’s sad. It was easy to de- 206 Ciarla scribe Homecoming, retell reactions to a snow day and record the Greek Weekend schedule. Impressions left by a faltering Honor Code, the threat of unionization and atomic poisoning were harder to capture. However, to sum up in a few words the panorama of sights, sounds words, emotions, conflicts, celebrations and tragedies of the entire year — impossible. Stepping Out is never as easy as stepping in. No one can imagine, on day one, everything that is to come, and can remember and appreciate every moment after it’s all over. (Emily said that in Mr. Richter’s production of Our Town; I picked it up.) Bitter regrets linger, too, and are hard to shake. Stifling the ‘hoorah’ that comes with reaching a milestone are the blurry memories of things that cannot be relived. Don’t forget them. Hopefully, snatches of the historic 1978-79 term retold in this volume will spark many personal and private memories of your own. There’s no sense in getting sentimental over this. It was only a part of our individual histories, and we’re all in for episodes which will be more real than the finals and proms at Muhlenberg. Some of us may save lives on the operating table. Many of us will give birth to new life. A few will run computers, others write actual histories, maybe even return to Muhlenberg to teach. The task of finding a suitable ending to this “Informal History of Muhlenberg College, 1978-79” remains. ‘Not with a bang but a whimper’ has already been used. ‘It’s not an end, but a beginning’ is too obvious. I can’t stutter in print, so ‘That’s all folks” would lose something. Anyway, that’s too cold Considering the mixed emotions of a farewell to Muhlenberg, a blend of all would be appropriate. I hated it; I loved it, and I will miss it. The word Muhlenberg will always be more to you than the last name of a patriarch in the Lutheran Church. Say ‘later’ to General John Peter Gabriel, but take with you his surname and the infinite meanings you have given it, and enter them into your personal histories. A cknowledgemen ts 207 ACKNOWLEDGE MENTS “An Informal History of Muhlenberg College” was created with some skill, some patience, some guess work and a lot of help. A book of this scope could not have been attempted without the endurance and dedication of a top-rate staff. In addition, Dr. Joel Kehler, Ciarla adviser, cut financial red tape to a minimum. Josten’s American Yearbook Company representative, Bill O’Brien, traveled to the Union’s room 15 to sooth troubled editors, replenish supplies and serve as a liaison with the plant in Topeka, Kansas. Mrs. Dee Cordell served as the consultant in Topeka. Abe Orlich of Davor Photo not only supplied film and developing services, but also rushed pictures for deadlines and provided photographers in a pinch. Alex Klein deserves credit for most club and faculty shots. Senior pictures also were taken by Davor. Student photographers, many from Tom Sternal’s class, who contributed were Kenny Ryder, Rudy Favocci, Nancy Hamlin, Greg Powell, Sue Gussow, Orin Levy, Tom Hanlon and Nanci Mlarks. Weekly photographers Jeff Chambers, Knoll Bowman and Aletia Morgan also provided pictures. Mrs. Helen Gammon secured pictures from the Allen- town Call-Chronicle for the book. Cooperation, advice, pictures and information came from the College Relations Office. Director John Ravage was never too busy to share his professional skills in publication. Assistant director Helen Richardson was responsible for sports team pictures, statistics and baseball candid photographs. Director of the Seeger’s Union, David Seamans, was an example of kindness when it came to granting promotional space, material and general use of his facilities. Union secretary Bonnie Troxell, likewise, offered the staff her informational services. Other helpful administrators were Dean Harold Stenger, Registrar Roland Dedekind, Director of Communications George Gordon and Director of Theater Charles Richter. Basic Reporting instructor Jack McCallum submitted some of his students’ copy for the academic section. During the summer, Barbara Robertson wrote and edited copy, and Tory Robertson cropped pictures. Roommates to the editor, Karen Scheible and Nanci Marks, often did deadline work, filling in for staff members with exams. They also tolerated the phone. Students, faculty and administrators, the Ciarla staff gratefully acknowledges your support. 208 Ciarla BOOKSTORE — Toni Loewen, Roma Werley, Lucille Dollar, Barbara Kulbaba.

TM Ofyiuli£enlxc C3o££cg e- 1975 79 The 1979 Yearbook is a delightfully insightful eyeful of Muhlenberg people, myths, mush, sports, warts, clubs, flubs, songs, bongs, sadness, badness, and all the non- sense and wisdom that made it a year like no other. The year of Three Mile Island was also the year of the 1979 Yearbook eloquent proof of the balance of nature. — John Ravage, director of college relations “There is a history in all men’s lives,” and this is the chronicle of the class of ’79. Seventy-nine with the year of disastrous tidings, not to comment upon the doings of our senior class, — of SALT and skylab, of the gas crunch and three mile island, and of the Arab-lsreali unpleasantness — but it was, closer to the heart, the year of the joys and tribulations recorded in these annals. It may be that for the 370 members of your class, this history will be read when Toynbee and Gibbon are forgotten. — Dr. Harold Stenger Jr., dean of the college JOSTEN’S jj§!
