I VESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITMV 198 7 IALISMAN 99 Lightning covers the sky over Green River Parkway in early March. Those at Westem were exposed to changing degrees of many things, including weather, throughout the year. F993 of xposure -Mike Kknmn We all have different experiences in college, espe- cially after we become involved, meeting new people and learning new ways of life. The Talisman staff wanted your book to be a common bond between those here at Western, yet one which each individual could relate to. We discussed themes for weeks but, when we thought we finally had one, someone took a differ- ent turn and came up with Degrees of Exposure. We went with it. It seemed to fit because, in our pursuit of an academic degree, we were exposed to personal ranges of experiences. Through the following stories and photos, we have tried to condense these exposures. We hope that in times to come, you will look back and remem- ber how you grew through Degrees of Exposure at Western.

Throughout the year, each of us saw changes happening, people growing and memories be- ing made. An extra 2,016 students trudged up and down the hill during the fall and spring semes- ters in comparison to the 85-86 year. This jump in enrollment initi- ated the reopening of Potter Hall and the proposed reopening of Florence Schneider Hall for the fall of '87, as more room was needed for housing students. The increase in student enroll- ment also meant a decrease in parking spaces, larger classes and longer lines. Rumors of another parking structure spread, While others were overheard wishing for more parking spaces located closer to the top of the hill. But this rise also benefited many because of the exposure re- ceived from the different degrees of cultures, habits and beliefs that came to Bowling Green from other areas of the country and the World.

But every year there were new and different things that opened up and offered new degrees of ex- posure to the students of West- ern. Two sororities, Alpha Omi- cron Pi and Chi Omega, pur- chased houses in the summer of '86 and settled down to a new de- gree of sorority life away from the residence halls. Government offices were also undergoing some changes as the seventh president, Dr. Kern Alexander, was inaugurated on Dec. 13, almost a year after being appointed. And the Board of Re- gents was busy with the establish- ment of the Community College, which opened its doors Oct. 6 to meet the educational needs of the non-traditional student. These were just a few of the ways people were being exposed to new events that happened around our campus. But, there was no doubt that these new things would eventually become one of those constant factors that were taken for granted almost ev- ery day. -lame: Borcbuck On a chilly night during Big Red's Roar, the Spirit Dancers Among the many rows of bleachers, Cheryl Norris, a Louis- perform their first dance of the evening to "Dream Team."

Charity was a large part of the greek system with many of the greeks selecting their own philan- thropies and supporting them through collections and fund- raisers. Another fund-raiser was the sixth annual Phonothon '86, which raised 354,917 for the uni- versity. Giving to charities wasn't the only thing that We depended on. Hope also had a big part in the year. But that could not help us through at all times. That optimism Was a part of our system, in the sports, organi- zations, classes and other things that We participated in through- out the year.

The shocking colors of red, yel- low and orange of the balloons and kites across campus weren't the only shades that were notice- able throughout the year. Brightly colored geometric shapes of purple, lime-green and bright blue, along with the vi- brant shades of red and yellow, seemed to dominant styles during the year. Everything went with everything-old and new, bright and dark, checked and striped. With long shirts, knee-length shorts and mini or ankle-length skirts, students tended to "dress down" from the past's "dressing up. " Ankle and granny boots also became popular. People bought new jeans that had been bleached or stone washed. Called Denim Blues, these jeans gave the impression of being aged and worn out. Clothes may have looked worn out and colors may have seemed brighter, but the life styles and attitudes of Western were 'psychedf' We were just exper- iencing those expanding Degrees of Exposure.

Though it was the first of November, tempera- tures soared into the 8os. Shirt sleeves were rolled up, ties loosened and wool jackets removed as the crowd watched the Toppers tackle Georgia South- ern. Despite the even score in the first quarter, Geor- gia Southern, the 1985 Division I-AA national champions, proved too much for the Toppers. By halftime, Southern had widened the gap to 28-14. And much of the crowd hung around only long enough to see Whitney Auslander crowned Homecoming queen. Auslander, a Louisville junior, was actually crowned twice during the week-long festivities-first at Big Red's Roar, the annual Homecoming pep rally held two nights earlier, then again at halftime of the football game. She was sponsored ,by Kappa Delta sorority and Sigma Chi fraternity. Because of a tie, two first runners-up were named. Cathy Brown, a Louisville senior, was sponsored by Alpha Delta Pi sorority and Sigma Alpha Epsilon -Bob Bruck Covering his ears, 3-year-old Matthew Sparks watches the Homecoming parade with his mother Linda.

Louisville senior Caroline Miller was sponsored by Chi Omega sorority and Delta Tau Delta and Phi Delta Theta fraternities. Though the game ended on a down note with the Toppers behind 49-32, the week had been packed with activities that included politics, parades and a no-show governor. With the theme "Oh Canada-Oh Kentucky: Knowledge Makes Good Neighbors," the week was a celebration of the university's new Canadian Stud- ies Program. Seminars, exhibits and concerts were all used to parallel the homecoming theme. Gov. Martha Layne Collins was expected to attend a press confer- ence on Monday, but Canadian Consul General Sydney Harris, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Thom- as Niles and university president Kern Alexander had to confer without her. Politics aside, the week continued with Big Red's Roar, which might have seemed a little foreign as well. In the past the rally was held inside Diddle Arena. This year for the first time, it was conducted outside at Smith Stadium. Features included a dance routine by the WKU Spirit Dancers, a lively performance by New York comedian Rondell Sheridan, and a fireworks show with bursts of color coming from the football field behind the stage. To comedian Sheridan, nothing was sacred. "Did someone have sex with a smurf?" he asked of Big Red. And he questioned the Canadian Homecoming theme. "I thought drugs were illegal. Who thought that one up?" i Reaction to the revamped event was mixed, but mostly positive, according to Louisville sophomore Kent Groemling, a member of the UCB special events committee. "Compared to last year, I thought it was much better being outdoors. Indoors was getting to be such a big production. It had grown out of hand. "About the only negative reaction we got was that people thought it was too cold," Groemling said. "Some people suggested that we have a bonfire next year. I think we'll probably have it outside again, and each year it will be getting bigger and better-going back to original, more traditional homecomingsf' f -'lim Broekema Tzu '5- pnfo f f-ff ' ' - q gfa iif iw z' I ' 5 Q If T - .

A I '-'lf , ,, 'bv y ,A la 1 fx? N I fm s 1 Bond The festivities continued Saturday with a parade. The float constructed by the KDS and Sigma Chis, with the theme "Big Red-Cut Canadian Hero," captured the first-place title. The float featured an oversized Big Red as a Canadian mountie on a white horse. A KD, tied to railroad tracks in front of the mascot, yelled for help. Though their float won, correlating the float to the Homecoming theme was no easy task, KD Me- lissa Scott, a Louisville senior, said. "The theme was almost impossible to work with," Scott said. "We had a hard time relating how the theme had anything to do with Homecoming." Second place went to Pearce-Ford Tower and Poland Hall while Delta Sigma Pi fraternity won the third-place title. In between the breakfasts and dinners, students and alumni managed to squeeze in the game. But many left the game early to get a good seat at the annual step show, sponsored by the United Black Greeks. At halftime, crowds began to gather at the "Block" in front of Downing University Center to watch black greeks strut their stuff and poke fun at each other. In one skit, Delta Sigma Theta sorority sisters -Iofm Dunham accused Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority of requiring pledges to purchase a Gucci purse. The AKAS coun- tered by saying the Deltas carried fake Gucci purses. "That's the fifth or sixth step show that I've been to. This one was by far the best," LaMont jones, an Owensboro junior, said. "The AKAS looked gor- geous in their green." Part of the week's activities included the "Hang- ing of the Red," where residence halls competed to see who could hang the most red out of their win- dows. Objects such as red sweaters and towels were seen dangling from the metal edges of windows, while one ledge sported a teddy bear dressed in a Western cheerleader's uniform. McCormack and Rodes-Harlin halls nailed down the first-place award while Potter Hall snagged sec- ond place. "This is my first Homecoming," Melissa Bird- well, a Springfield, Tenn., freshman, said. "I'm not sure if it,s what I expected or not. But I really liked seeing the red hanging from the windows. It showed support, not just for the team, but for the whole school."

Carla Petty, a Louisville senior and one of the fortune tellers, said the booth was popular because students "want to know what their future is."

Children watched the waves with fear and excite- ment as they ventured toward the water. As instruc- tors led students into the pool, anxious parents kept an intent eye on their progress. At times, trickling tears ran down a frightened child's cheeks when he was faced with the inevitable task of entering the water. For five weeks from September through October, the swim team, coached by William Powell, and about 30 volunteers offered the Learn to Swim program for beginning swimmers. Approximately zoo students, ages 4 to 55, came to learn the proper swimming techniques. Many participants, however, seemed more concerned about entering the water than with developing any profes- sional skills. From 8 a.m. until noon, each beginner was as- 20 Student Life With some reluctancy, a child tries to decide if she should jump off the diving board.

This made the program the only one of its kind in the region, Powell said. S "Kicking and screaming." That's the way Eliza- beth Hocker, a Bowling Green senior, described the kids she worked with-most commonly referred to by the instructors as "criers" "When you work with the more developed swim- mers you look for picky things in their strokes, but when a frightened child is no longer frightened of the water, it's a visible accomplishment," I-locker said. According to I-locker, most of the criers were really afraid of the water, but then others simply did not want to be there. After the mother of a 7-year-old boy had told I-locker that he wasn't afraid of the water, the child began screaming and burst into tears because he did not want to swim. "By the time I got him away from his mother, everyone in the pool knew what was happening and Coach Powell intervened," I-locker said. Dealing with the criers who were frightened of the water was another challenge. According to Becky Brunner, a freshman from Prospect, her main concern was to make the child feel secure in the water by learning to trust his instructor. She accomplished this by holding the child firmly to make him feel safe and by playing games such as follow the leader. There were different goals for each crier, Hocker said. If a frightened child was secure with being in the water after the course, a great hurdle had been overcome. And when the child who had no desire to swim became content, he could be taught to tread water or swim underneath it. "But when itls all over," I-locker said, "and you see the little girl run to her mother's arms saying, 'Did you see me Mommy, did you see me swim?' it's all worth it." I -Story by John H.

Girls sat on boyfriends' shoulders tor a better view while fathers carefully held drowsy children throughout the concert. Playing a sound that appealed to a variety of age groups, the band called it "T-bird music" and its audience called it "great" "It's anything you want to make it," said the band's lead singer, Kim Wilson, in an interview before the show. About 1,000 students and local residents bopped and bounced to the driving 50s beat which showed the influence of old-time rhythm and blues. Wilson said he likes to listen to old music by black artists, "all the way back to the doo-wop acappellaf' Some of today's popular musicians, "try to be so original but they're not doing anything," Wilson said. "I hear some guy screaming like a cat that's been hit by a brick, That's original, but it's terrible." "T-bird music" seemed to agree with Western's audience. Waving signs and fists in time with the music, the crowd demanded, and received, an encore after the band played the hit song "Tuff Enufff' "We knew if we showed the band we loved them, they'd give us a good show," said Mel Taylor, a Bowling Green fireman who led the sign waving, confetti-spraying brigade. "It was really r0ckin',', said Eva jinks, a sopho- more from Fort Wayne, Ind. "I loved it." Although the show at Western was the 25th in a row for the Thunderbirds, who were also touring with Bob Seger, they held nothing back. In a world of his own, lead guitarist Jimmie Vaughan ripped through complex guitar licks with- 2 2 Student Life out flinching, oblivious to the audience's screaming response. Smiling mischievously, bassist Preston Hubbard twirled the mammoth, white upright bass on its end during the upbeat songs. Always dancing, playing the harmonica, or belt- ing out lyrics in the foreground, Wilson rarely got a chance to rest. That's nothing new to him. Since the band's national success, 'Tve been working too hard to enjoy it," Wilson said. When he gets a chance, Wilson said, "I go fish- ing, hang around, generally screw off. There's no set schedule." When they weren't on the road, the band mem- bers rarely saw each other because for the past five years they've spent about 300 days a year on the road, "five or IO feet away from each other," Wilson said. They got along well, though. "We're all kind of sick, you know," Wilson said. With songs on the charts and in the movies, the Thunderbirds have come a long way from playing Texas bars during the band's 12-year history. But, "We've always been successful among our peers," he added. "When the audience goes crazy thatis what we want. But the glamour's great too." Wilson said he might even like to get into acting sometime. 'Td love that," he said. 'Tm still just a juvenile delinquent. I was an old man when I was a kid. I'm just digressingf' If the success disappeared tomorrow, they wouldn't fall apart, drummer Fran Christina said. "We've been there before. It doesn't make any differencef' he said.

Black hile keepers of a dream marched in Forsyth County, Ga., and a cultural center sprang up on the University Kentuclcy's campus, Dr. Martin Luther King Jrfs birthday was the center of celebration and controversy on the Hill. The Amazing Tones of joy, a gospel choir and the largest mostly black student organization on campus, led the tribute to King on Jan. I9 with a program in the auditorium of Garrett Conference Center. The importance of African-American heritage and culture was the subject of a lecture by Ken Nelson, staff assistant to the dean of the Graduate College. That same night, I5 students and faculty braved freezing winds for a candlelight march from Downing University Center to Garrett Conference Center. Sam McFarland, a psychology instructor and adviser of United Campuses to Prevent Nuclear War, spoke about King's stands for justice. Meanwhile, for the second consecutive year, an Associated Student Government resolution to honor King's birthday failed amid much tension and politiclcing. -The student organization had During the Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday celebration, Julius Key, a Detroit, Mich., junior, listens carefully to a speaker. The celebration was held in the State Street Baptist Church. M3 tt 45 1 F? W, M ,I ,W UNM llUllllAY popular demand hoped to pass a resolution to have classes canceled that day. At I4-12, the vote was much closer than the IQ-5 tally in 1986. But politicking was as fierce and tension just as high. Opponents cited the administration's reluctance to dismiss classes and the fact that classes were held on holidays honoring other national heroes as reasons for voting against the resolution. However, those points were secondary to Adrian Smoot, a freshman representative from Franklin and an author of the resolution. King "didn't just fight for the rights of blacks," Smoot said. "He fought for all men and women of all races to be equal." Leaders of predominantly black student organizations expressed regret that, aside from the annual Martin Luther King Forum on issues of world concern, the university has not honored King's birthday more substantially. But the presidents seemed divided over the issue of canceling classes. "I think if you look at it, we don't set out for Washington's birthday and Lincoln's birthday," said David Padgett, a Baltimore, Md., senior and president of Black Scholastic Achievers QBSAQ. Were classes to be canceled for King's birthday, "People would stay on the pillow until the afternoon, and they'd probably get drunk Sunday night" and spend Monday sobering up, Padgett said. ,....- llllHlll KING. Jll ai 9 Marchale Graves, a Nicholasville junior and president of United Black Students QUBSJ, disagreed. "It's disappointing to me that around the world people have accepted fthe holidayj and Western doesn't feel it's worth a day off to give the respect due to Martin Luther King," she said. Lexington senior Monica Johnson, president of the Amazing Tones of Joy, said she understood both sides of the debate. "I don't think people should try to close class just because other schools are," she said. Instead, schools should cancel classes only if they augment the closing with commemorative activities, she said. "I'd like to see fthe holiday, used in a positive way." When Black History Month came in February, many of the organizations strived to expose the public to the accomplishments of black Americans. "Black By Popular Demand" was the name of a variety show sponsored by the Amazing Tones of joy. Songs, dances and monologues provided "a medium for blacks to showcase their talents," johnson said. BSA posted a "This Week In Black History" calendar in the university center lobby to "highlight moments in black history for each day of the month," Padgett said. Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity won the BSA- sponsored "Black History Trivia Game Show II," defeating Western Kentucky Minority Communicators in the final round for the second year. UBS showed the 90-minute film "Memphis To Montgomery" and showcased achievements of famous black Americans for three days during the last week of the month. Poor planning, Graves said, resulted in the cancellation of a panel discussion and a special ceremony earlier in February. Regardless, black student organizations presented positive images of blacks at a time when blacks were often negatively stereotyped in the media. Mervin Aubespin, associate editor of development for The Courier-journal, put it best: "Were I a visitor from another country and had never met a black person before, from what I read in the newspapers and saw on television, I would think that all black people do is eat chicken and watermelon, play sports, crack jokes and shoot each other." And during january and February, Western's black student organizations presented more than comedians and chicken-eaters.

The crowd carried banners and flags with them. 25 Black history ot just a handout "It's true we make a better day, just you and me . . . Let us realize that a change can only come when we stand together as one." -From "We are the World," By Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie he song floated across campus as the line of people stood, their hands joined together, their voices echoing from the top of the hill to the bottom and lingering there. The human band stretched its way across campus from Wetherby Administration Building to Poland Hall. Individuals descended the sidewalk and zig- zagged down the steps. The sun shone brightly on clutched hands while a soft breeze blew hair around faces. "There are no barriers here," jlohnetta Stagner, a Bowling Green senior, said. "You are either a West- ern student or just working for a cause. It brings everybody on campus together." The cause was hunger in America, and the event was Hands Across Western. On Sept. 6 about 700 people formed a chain which helped to raise more than 51,500 for the National Hands Across Amer- ica fund and the local United Way. The line did not reach all the way across campus as organizers had hoped it would. Originally the line was to begin by Cherry Hall and end near the front doors of Pearce-Ford Tower. Each person paid to stand in the line. Many greeks and organizations bought blocks of the .Zz student tickets which allowed them to stay together 26 Student Life in 'one area. "We wanted to stand together as a group to show our supportf' Rhonda Powell, a Franklin junior, said. "I know other countries have hunger, too, but our country has its own hunger. I think it's a great thing to come together and help our own." Tommy johnson, a graduate student from Frank- lin, began coordinating the event three months in advance after he and a few other students thought of the idea. He said he had been unable to partici- pate in the national Hands Across America and wanted to plan something similar for the university. "We wanted to make a dent in the hunger prob- lem," johnson said. "That was our first objective. Our second goal was to see diverse student groups on campus working togetherf, johnson said that as far as he knew, Western was the first university to stage such an event. He said he would like to see the college continue to be a paceset- ICT. "We would like Western to be the catalyst-the start of something big," johnson said. "I hope we got the point across that we can make a difference." During an address to the crowd of participants at a welcome ceremony, johnson issued a challenge to other universities "to join hands across their campus and to help fight hunger. "Let's make this a start and not an end," he added. The national event, Hands Across America, oc- curred on May 25, 1986. Although that line did not stretch from coast to coast, more than 820 million was raised to aid the hungry and homeless in Amer- ica. One student who participated in the national event said he enjoyed Hands Across Western more. Leim Boland, an Elizabethtown senior, said he thought people "could relate to this better because it's done on a local level." The day got started at IO a.m. on the south lawn on Downing University Center. Tables were set up for those who had not purchased tickets in advance. About 51,000 worth of tickets had been sold before the day of the event, and another S500 was made J hands, directing students to their designated areas and keeping the line from getting bunched up. Once everyone had linked hands, some began having fun by doing the "wave" with their bodies and singing along with songs coming out over the loudspeaker. Patriotic songs were led by former Miss Western Beth Delap Hamby and associate professor of music Elizabeth Volkman. "We are the World" and "That's What Friends are For" were sung by the Amazing Tones of Joy and Miss Black Western NaTasha Watkins. Some standing in line took the event as a serious commitment. "It was ' nice as a service project and for the community as a whole," David Jones, a senior from Chattanooga, Tenn., said. jones had joined the from ticket sales that morning.

This came from a belief that long ago, Feb. I4 was the day when birds began to choose their mates. However, the oc- casion had since developed into a day when friends and lovers gave presents to one an- other. This year was no different. When giving a gift of flowers, red roses were still the most popular, but pink, sonia fpeachl, yellow and white weren't far behind. "We also did have a lavender rose," Sherry Carter, employee of Deemer's Florist, said. "We normally don't have those, but we did for Valentines Day." .6 , Teddy bears, red roses, heart-shaped balloons, romantic evenings and love are just a few of the things that enter people's minds on the day made for lovers, Valentines Day. fProps courtesy of Container World, Some other flowers were offered in the shape of arrangements, with the FTD "Hearts and Flowers Bouquet" and Teleflora,s "Valentine Bear Bou- quet" being preferred over the rest. Students also got in on the act of selling by offering items such as carnations and painted "I love you" crafts. Crafts were made by Delwin Cheek, a Reynolds Station junior. Inter-Hall Council bought the crafts from Cheek for the price it cost him to make them. Cheek made about 90 crafts with sale prices that ran between 52 and 37.50 each. The booth was set up on the patio of Downing University Center. "The sales went real, real well," Cheek said. "Sur- prisingly so." The biggest crafts sold in the booth were as large as eight inches tall and six inches wide. Sales were based on a cash-and-carry policy with no delivery being offered. The Horticulture Club had a table set up in the Environmental Science Building to sell carnations for Valentines Day. "The sales went really great," said Kathy Baker, a Somerset graduate student and member of the Hor- ticulture Club. "We were pleased with the results." Red flowers dominated those offered by the club, along with white, pink and peach carnations. A price of 51.50 included the carnation, card and deliv- ery on campus. Many of the local businesses also offered a deliv- ery service to campus residents. This was the second year Container World of- fered a delivery service. About half of their deliveries went to Western's campus. "We didn't really have anything unusual deliv- ered," Owensboro senior Bob Scheidegger said. "We got a lot of balloons this year, and some fof the balloonsj had stuffed animals tied to the ribbons. "We also had a little sand bucket full of candy Qthat was deliveredl and a balloon was tied to the handle," he said. During the week that led up to Valentine's Day, Central and Keen Hall staffs had a staff exchange where they switched resident hall desk duties. This gave the staffs a chance to see how the opposite sex handled valentines. "It was so funny the way the guys were waiting for the mail," Denise Vincent, a Graham senior, said. "Maybe it was just because of Valentines week, but they were worse than the girls." "There were a lot of carnations, daisies and pick- me-up-type bouquets," Vincent said. "There were quite a few balloons, too." Balloon bouquets seemed to be a popular item. Container World carried a large arrangement of balloon bouquets, from a seven-foot balloon pillar to an arrangement of balloons attached to a single rose container full of Oreo cookies. Container World also had many novelty items such as Love Mugs, Valentine ink pens and heart- shaped bath pillows. They also offered a service of putting gifts inside of helium latex balloons. "We did more this year than in the past fputting presents in the balloonsj," Markita Wilkinson, manager of Container World, said. "This year we only put stuffed animals in the balloons and the largest one was an UW-inch bear." Stuffed animals seemed to be the rage this year, IOO. "The most popular gifts were bears-white ones with hearts," Louise Canter, co-owner of Canter's Hallmark, said. "We also sold small figurines, Val- entine mugs and the dinosaurs with the entwining necks were more popular than the little pigs." Ormond as well as J.C. Penney department store sold Valentine lingerie, with teddies and sleep shirts being big sellers. Sweatshirts with animals and Val- entine sayings on the front also went well. "It was a special day that I shared with my sweetheart," Julie DeBoy, Elizabethtown junior, said. "I got a sweatshirt with a bear and a heart on the front that said, 'It's a bear fact,' and in the heart it said, 'I love you.' "It just made me feel all warm inside."

Greenwell worked two hours in the morning, two hours in the aftemoon and anytime between classes. In a field next to the bam, one of the newborn foals receives a pat on the neclc as Greenwell checlcs up on him during her aftemoon rounds at Westem's farm. At the time, there were about five mares with foals on the farm. 32 Student life gym-mwwm er room at the Agriculture-Exposition Center was nothing more than a remod- eled office. She used the ladies' public restroom down the iall and showered in the holding room next to the arena, but Kelly Greenwell loved her job. "The room is not much, but it's handy," Green- vell said. Greenwell, an agriculture major with a concentra- :ion in horse science, lived on Western's farm and aelped take care of the horses. "I do feeding and health care of the horses, staying up late with pregnant mares and helping fvith the training," the Rineyville senior said. Her job included grooming, exercising the horses and helping halter-break the younger ones. In addi- :ion, she got 2-year-olds ready to ride for beginning :iders and helped prepare the horses that were to be sold. Greenwell also taught basic equitation classes for which she received graduate credit. She had consid- :red doing graduate work. Greenwell's job had "a lot of physical work 'cause the program is still growing. We don't have the facilities and equipment to keep it going," she said. "We have to work extra hours, which may include staying up late with a mare, and then go to class the next morning. Sometimes you have to break your plans." Once Greenwell had to stay up with a pregnant mare every other night for a week while switching turns with other people. "A couple of times in the past, one mare had a little problem and you just had to reach in and stretch it out to where she could have it. If there was more trouble, you call the vet," she said. An average day for Greenwell began around 6 or 7 in the morning and ended around 7 or 8 at night. She usually worked two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon and anytime in between classes. "When it's light we stay longer," she said. On the weekends she maintained an eight-hour day on Saturday and four to five hours on Sunday. Greenwell began her job over three years ago. "When I came into Western, I went into horse science," she said. "Mr, Charles Anderson fassistant professor of agriculturej was in charge of the horse program and asked me if I would be interested in taking care of the horses and I said 'Yeah.' " Greenwell recalled one time when they had a yearling they were hoping to show, and the first person who saw it offered 37,000 for the horse. "It made me feel good that we could raise that quality of a horse," she said. Throughout the years she worked on the farm, Greenwell said she grew close to the horses. "There's two or three that I've worked with a lot and two or three that I'd like to show and buy when I get out on my own," she said. "I've gotten attached to the horses. They each have a different personal- ity." As a matter of fact, all of the horses had names. Cne horse was called Pig. "She's a poor, ugly horse," Greenwell said. "She,s an unregistered appaloosa called Miss Piggy As the light pours through the open doors, Greenwell prepares to clean the stables at the farm. Along with work, Greenwell taught basic equitation classes for which she received graduate credit. because she used to boss the other horses around. Her full name started out as Miss Piggy, but it was eventually shortened to Pig." Greenwell disliked one part of her job. It was hard "working with inadequate facilities," she said. "The fences need to be fixed to keep the horses from running through them." Greenwell planned to leave the farm in june. She had plans to be married and move to Westmoreland, Tenn., where her fiance worked at Creasy Farms. 'Tm looking for a job with the state department and an extension service for right now," she said. "If I find a good job, I'd like to manage a farm. That's my main goal. "We're both still looking for jobs. We thought about going into horse and cattle management. I-Ie's good with cattle and I'm good with horses. It would be great if we could find a deal like that." Greenwell said she felt she had learned a lot through her job. "I just had a lot of responsibility. I pretty much ran the thing," she said. "I feel like I could handle a management position. I've met a lot of people in the industry. "I've made a lot of friends. I'm gonna miss it- that's for sure."

That attitude was evident in trumpet player Jim Daniel, a Gallatin, Tenn., senior. "I try to put emphasis on performance no matter what genre I'm playing in," Daniel said. Daniel's work in music while at Western dis- played both his talent and versatility. While playing with the marching band, the University Choir and the orchestra, he performed in churches and played jazz in local clubs and Opryland amusement park in Nashville, Tenn. "I play anywhere I get a chance to play," he said. Performing, along with practicing for up to four hours a day, were only part of what Daniel called his "ungodly" schedule. The music major also taught I5 to zo students during a semester. Some of the high school students he taught received All-State Band honors. "I enjoy nothing more than teaching," he said. "It's very rewarding." Daniel had won top honors of his own, including marching in the All-American Band that led the QP 1987 Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Calif. He was among three students from Western recommended for the Rose Bowl and was the only one chosen, through United Way, to participate. Steve Grugin, associate director of Western's Big Red Band, nominated Daniel to play at the Rose Bowl and was one of two men who influenced Dan- iel during his college years. Grugin helped him get "priceless" experience in music, Daniel said. "He's got a lot of natural talent, he works hard and he's intelligent," Grugin said. "When you have those three things working for you, you're bound to become a good musicianf, Daniel's instructor, Gary Dilworth, an assistant professor in the music department, also greatly in- fluenced him. Dilworth helped his student's attitude and per- formance in music by being "very demanding as a teacher . . . which has helped me to strive to be the best I can," Daniel said. "I tried to give him a little guidance," Dilworth said. "He's made quite a bit of improvement. He's enthusiastic about music." "I love music," Daniel said. This was the attitude that had carried Daniel through life since he was I2 years old. His father, a professional guitarist, had recorded with bands, and his grandfather owned a big band and was a pianist for the group. When Daniel first began playing music, he start- ed out with a cornet that belonged to his parents. "I fell in love with the instrument," he said. Since Daniel started playing, he has enjoyed it, although, "I've been through times where I haven't been as intense as I am now," he said. Daniel played through high school and went to Austin Peay State University in Tennessee before transferring to Western. His future plans included setting up his own studio to teach and to play professionally on the side. He didn't expect his talent to reach a climax, he said. "I want to be able to improve my standards in performance and teaching every year," he said. "If I ever got to the point that I couldn't go any more, I wouldn't be happy."

The instructions were given in the Fine Arts Center. 35 jim Daniel a different scale fter a lull of six years, a William Shake- speare play appeared on a Western stage, complete with colorful costumes and an Qld English style. "Measure For Measure," which ran from Oct. I3 to 22 at Russell Miller Theater, was the theater department's first major production of the year. Dr. Jackson Kesler, a communication and theater professor and director of the production, wanted to do a Shakespearean play because, "He is regarded as the preeminent English playwright and it's a chal- lenge to the students," he said. Performing a Shakespearean play was a new ex- perience for some theater majors. Christian Ely, a Brentwood, Tenn., sophomore, who played Angelo, said, "I've never had to conquer the language of a play before I could conquer the character. I had to get over being afraid of the language before I could act." Ely auditioned for the production because, "I've always wanted to do Shakespeare. I'm a theater major and it's a leap forward in my trainingf' he said. The actors had to overcome misconceptions about Shakespeare to learn and perform the play. "At first it's easy to fall into stereotypical Shake- speare characters with the voice and accent, but as you practice, it gets scaled down," Eric Tichenor, a Louisville senior, said. "In high school I was strongly against Shake- speare," he added. 'Tm anxious to do another one now." Tichenor played the double role of Vicentio- the Duke and a friar. "It was difficult to develop two characters and then keep switching between them," he said. "I had to make a clear distinction between them." The play challenged the audience as well as the actors. "It was easier to follow than I thought it would be," Kacy Wilson, a Bowling Green senior, said. "It was easier to follow general ideas than specific sen- tencesf' ' Tim Harris, a Bowling Green senior, had seen several Shakespeare plays and said "Measure For Measure" was rather new to him. "I had read the major Shakespeare works and I guess I thought 'Measure For Measure' was pretty minor. This showed me that Shakespeare wrote more than just 'I-Iamlet,' " he said. Kesler chose the lesser-known "Measure For Actors Scott Denny, a Terre Haute, Ind., juniorg Christian Ely, a Brentwood, Tenn., sophomore, and Art Elrod, a Nashville senior, debate a crime. They were theater majors. 36 Student Life Measurel' because local theaters and traveling com- panies had done the standards. "It would be more interesting to do something different and people wouldn't be able to compare," Kesler said. Harris said, "The actors showed an understand- ing of the play. I was looking for that. The costumes showed a lot of work. I wasn't disappointed." After his arrest, Pompey, played by Bart Lovins, a Bowling Green senior, uses Froth to plead his case. Scott Belcher, a Hardinburg senior, played Froth. Assistant director Carmen Thorton, a Bowling Green junior, said the audience received the produc- tion well. "I was surprised by the large audience," she said. "A lot of people who I didn't think would enjoy Shakespeare really liked it. It went over well.', The play's language was probably the most diffi- cult thing for the audience to overcome. "It wasn't like talking to people around Bowling Green. It wasn't easy by any means," Harris said. "It takes some thought. The actors can help and I think they were good." Kesler said the play was applicable to today and that his preparation for directing it was no different than for a more contemporary one. "Every play deals with human nature," he said. "Whether a play is four years or 4oo years old, there is the same problem of making it viable to a modern audience." Harris said he enjoyed the production. "Students who were deciding what to do and didn't come, really missed out. For Tichenor, meeting the challenge brought a feeling of accomplishment. "I look forward to doing it again. Now I know Shakespeare is another show that can be done."

Bright banners and brilliantly decorated booths displayed the theme, "The World: My Neighbor- hood." Countries such as Ecuador, Israel and Can- ada were represented, along with college clubs like Gamma Sigma Sigma and departments such as health and geography. According to International Day chairman Daniel Rodriguez, the purpose of the occasion was to pro- mote international awareness on campus and in the community. Promoting international departments was the goal of the first International Day, Rodriguez said, while the aim the second year was encouraging the interaction of students from different countries. The third International Day was the first to include high school students. According to Rodri- guez, about 400 students from io high schools came to participate in the activities and to compete with one another. Mitchell McKinney, a junior from Drakesboro, said high school, community and college groups tried for awards in the areas of entertainment and food booth displays.

Activities for high school students were directed toward those who spoke Spanish, French and Ger- man, Rodriguez said.

The French Club sold crepes and cakes in the cafe while the Russian Club offered Russian Easter cake 3 4 can P -Scarf id meat pies, according to Mania Ritter, professor F Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies.

The mezzanine of the student center came to life our times during the day with live entertainment irovided by an Egyptian belly dancer, a Peruvian dancer and musicians playing Korean music. Emilia Urbina, a graduate student from Trujillio City, Peru, performed an eight-minute Peruvian dance called Popular Marinera. Urbina wore the appropriate native costume when she performed the dance with her partner, Luis Llomtop, who was from Lima, Peru. "It is a mix dance from India and Spain," Urbina said in broken English. "I enjoyed it because my friends came to see me. I love dancing, I love to show my dancing." An Egyptian belly dance was performed by Inter- national Student Organization adviser Varvara Kymbriti. Kymbriti, who was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, wore a costume composed of harem pants, slcirt, a decorated halter top and several scarves that she wore below her hips. "It was the enthusiasm and the applause that enabled me to get through the entire 16 minutes and 44 seconds of the dance,', Kymbriti said.

Big Red didn't have that problem, but Western's 140-member marching band did.

And that reluctance told Grugin and band mem- bers that the band wasn't appreciated. "Nobody cares about the band. I'm convinced," .. ...,,,,, .. . .,, ,..,, ,... ,,,,.

"They say there isn't enough moneyf, And, according to Dr. Wayne Hobbs, head of the music department, there wasn't enough money for new uniforms or instruments. "They didn't get them because the money's not there," Hobbs said. "We generally try to forward most of their requests, but we just don't have the money." Since the uniforms were "pretty shoddy," the band may not be able to perform in the fall of 1987, Hobbs said. "We have the oldest band unifoms of any public university in the state," Hobbs said. "They look so bad. lt's pretty pitiful." Grugin suggested that the entire budget be re- moved from the music department except for the budget for sheet music and staff. Then the athletic department would control money for travel and instruments, and the budget for uniforms and spe- cial purchases would be directly under the universi- ty. The university should also consider increased funding for the band, Grugin said. "Schools our size anywhere need to operate on about a 250,000 bud- get. We're running on less than 5,oo0. "Trying to," he added. Meanwhile, the bandls public image and respect- ability suffered, according to Chuck Curry, a Horse Cave senior and president of the band. Curry gave two indicators of the low level of respect for the band: -During halftime of every home football game, members of the Hilltopper loo club were invited to a reception which distracted them from the bandls field show. When Western's band was leaving the field after a halftime performance during the Homecoming game, a high school band scheduled to perform marched "rudely" through them, Curry said. According to Grugin, such treatment affected the band's morale and performance.

"They're probably the most taken-for-granted band that live ever been connected with. They feel like they're low in priority and importance to the university. As a result, it has an effect on their spirit. "The other part is that it has a negative effect on their performance. You play better when you have better instruments. You feel better when you look better." Curry said perception of the band "has to do with personal school pride. "You'd hate for someone to come here and see that your band's been wearing the same uniform for I3 years.

Behind the desk sat Richard White, a Bowling Green sophomore, who spent his time working for the Pre-Release Program of the Salva- tion Army. White, who was working on an associate degree in social work, was also in charge of the halfway house. This was one of the many programs run by the Salvation Army for federal offenders who were ready to get out on parole. "This is exactly what I want to do," White said. The Salvation Army was more than just a group that helped the underprivileged. They represented an international, religious and charitable movement. The organization was a branch of the Christian church which was designed and operated in a mili- tary fashion. White's job with the pre-release program took in federal offenders with 60 to 180 days left at the end of their sentences. "I am responsible while they're here to see that they go by the rules," White said. "The highlight of doing this job is when it comes time for an individual to be released, and you have seen his progress from day one," he said. Besides working all day at his job, White also worked with the young people and their groups, such as the Boys Club and the beginners band program. He also helped with any services that went on with the Salvation Army. White had been a member of the organization for three years. He originally worked as a "lodge- keeper" where he lived in the Salvation Army lodge with the transit people and took care of them at night. He also helped out during the day by working at the thrift store, the soup kitchen or the office. "This is a more personal field where one works directly with the people. If you can't work with them, then this is definitely not the job ffor youj," White said. "I enjoy it because I am a people- oriented person." White's wife was also a member of the Salvation Army church. She played an active role in many of the groups, also, including the Corps Cadets fa girls' groupl and the Bible study program. An advisory board, made up of local business people and Western professors, among others, ran the Bowling Green Salvation Army. "They were always very big support for the operation," White said. Other programs the Corps ran to benefit the public in Bowling Green were the soup kitchen, transit lodge and the Salvation Army Store, White said. "The problem that always happens fis thatl we couldn't do everything people expected us to do. It bothers me that we can't always help," he said. White felt that there was needed improvement for individuals who suffered from poverty and couldn't pay their bills. "Here in town, there was no money for individuals who got stranded," he said. "They're just out of luckf, Along with the many community programs of- fered by the Salvation Army, the organization re- ceived many donations from Western students. One of the big drives it conducted was for canned goods at Christmas, White said. His first year at Western, the residence halls brought in a large amount of canned goods. There were 700 to 800 baskets to give to the underprivi- leged. "We had enough canned food to last us the rest of the year," he said. The Salvation Army also collected clothes. Stu- dents did not usually mind donating, especially when they were going and coming from a break and cleaning out their closets, White said. In December the Corps raised 550,000 to help families for Christmas. "The support we got from Western students and the community was excellent," White said. Following in the footsteps of Mrs. White's par- ents, he and his wife planned to remain in the organization for a while. "fMy wife and Il both have the same goal - we want to be Salvation Army officers," White said. "The Corps bases everything we do on the love that God has for us," he said, "and we show that love to mankind."

Now many will hear of the glorious things he did for me and stand in awe before the Lord." Psalm 40:3 he young man sat cross-legged on the wood- en platform, releasing his energy by twirl- ing a staple between his fingers. The tweed sweater began to inch up his elbows as he talked, while socks wrinkled below the bottom of plaid pants. To listen to him, one would think he was just an ordinary student. "I'm not world-famous," he said. "It's not an honor to interview me." The voice was deep and sincere, ringing out tones like the bass pipes on a church organ, lending a clue as to how the young man had managed to accom- plish so much in so short a time. He was Tim Harris, a Woodburn senior, and his achievements nearly outnumbered his 21 years. He had recorded three albums, displayed his own paint- ings, sung jingles for radio spots and was a minister of music at Woodburn Baptist Church. Yet he did not believe he was highly talented. However, he did have strong belief in 77 r the Lord. He was willing to do whatever he could to spread God's word and in- still a love for God other people. "I'm going to do anything in the world that I can do to make an impact with Jesus Christ," Harris said. "If I can do that through music, I'll record al- bums until I'm blue in the face. If I can do it through painting, I'll do that. "And if I can do it through sitting down and playing marbles with some 5- year-old kid in the street, I'll play mar- bles in the street." j Harris got his first chance to record an album when he was just out of high school. Johnny Carr of Franklin, a veteran of music, visited his church one night when Harris was singing. "I've never considered myself a singer," Harris said. "I don't know why I decided to do it that night, but I did." When Carr heard him sing, he knew Harris "had a voice that I could work with," he said. "I love that kind of voice." Afterwards, Carr asked Harris if he had recorded before. "I didn't lie," Harris said, "but I really didn't let him know how little I knew about music. I said, "Ch sure, I can do that." After recording two songs in Carr's home studio, 46 Student Life Harris said he had honestly felt nothing would come out of it, although it had been fun being in a studio for the first time. However, Carr came back to church to do a concert, and he and Harris ended up singing togeth- er on a song called "Praise His Name, jerusalem." Later, Carr handed Harris a packet of music and told him he had a concert in about a week. "Just set this music together and you can do it-you can sing," he said. The two did their first concert within two weeks of meeting, and four years later, they were still doing joint concerts and recording together. It just happened, and I never looked for it," Harris said. "If I had ever thought I would be doing that, I would have banished the thought. That was ridiculous." The two musicians soon recorded their first Christian album, "Who Will You Serve?" It was a custom album, which meant that they were responsi- ble for all production costs. The money earned from the first batch of 4oo albums was sent to a mission- ary. There was never any question that the two would record Christian music. "I love contemporary music, but I never under- stood why we couldn't have music that you could enjoy and still call it gospel," Harris said. "I've committed my life to be a minister for Him," he said, "and I don't really care how I do that. I love the music and I love the concerts, but that's not the most important thing. My ultimate aim in life is not to be successful in music. "My ultimate aim in life is to express what I've found in jesus Christ and let kids, especially, and the world fhear thatj. I think music is the best way for me to do that right now." Likewise, Carr said he had made the decision four years ago to quit riding the fence between secular and Christian music. "I was playing in bars on Saturday night and playing in church on Sundays," he said. "I just had to stop that." Carr wrote the music and the words to the songs, while Harris did vocals. The two recorded a second album, "Mutual Backpattersf' the next year, and were picked up by a label. The album eventually went nationwide, and the company planned to re- lease a single. The second album was becoming widely known, Harris said, although it had been released much earlier. "That's really weird to have people getting ex- cited about music that you sang a year and a half ago," he said. "I've been singing those songs in concert over and over, and it's just now new to some people." A third album, "Harris and Carr III," had been recorded, but it had not yet been released on a big scale. Both Carr and Harris felt the album was an improvement over the first two. "It's interesting because the last thing I heard, we were doing well in some really strange places like Portland, Ore., or somewhere like that," Harris said. . Despite the success of the albums, I the two musicians had not become over- night millionaires. They gave many of their albums away, especially at con- certs, to people who could not afford them. Harris admitted he was often too anxious to give them away. "I don't have any tapes or albums in my house because I give them all away," he said. "I cannot charge money. I'm hard on myself, and I feel like they are going to get ripped off." He also said he had never sat down and listened to one of his tapes all the way through. "I just hear that half the notes are out of tune," he said. Calling himself a perfectionist, Harris said that Carr would have to tell him when to quit when they were recording. 'Tm just never satisfied with anything I do," he said. "I'd still be in the studio on my first album if I had it my way." Even though Harris did not display confidence in his abilities, Carr said he was definitely talented. "He doesn't practice," Carr said, "because it comes naturally to him." Although Harris said his music was important, he emphasized that his first commitment was to they -ix ' , H. . 1 ff, 1Qwf,grf.ax'f ' 1 . -4' them-,faffw '52 H:.'1f'.f,-wPfsfff1'ff V' we "eff" I ll 4' -i '3 . 8-I f .1-A , p x pi my 1T1"""' n l ' n islrf-S Y , , p n1,,,t , 41 sw.

He knew that it was the Lord, he said, because he never sought to do it. "Sometimes I think it's like a miracle because I really don't think I sing that good," he said. "I think God is shielding everybody's ears because the mes- sage is so much more important than the music." The albums were just a small part of what Harris did. However, he said he had no way of knowing what was small in God's eyes. He did not know what was significant and what wasn't, he said. "You never know how God takes the little things in our life and makes something big out of it." Kacy Wilson, a Bowling Green senior, had been dating Harris for about two years. She also felt the albums were only a "little part of Tim," although she admitted that she was partial to them. "He's so much more than just a singer of contem- porary music," she said. "The first thing I think of when I think of Tim is his love for the Lord. I hope that is the first thing others notice." Saying he was "tender-hearted," Wilson said he "knows the right words to say to make me feel better. He always knows when I need to talk, too, even when I'm silent." Above all, Harris considered himself a minister. He loved the idea of committing himself to God and to people, and felt the church was the best way to do that. "You can pour your life into one body of people and minister to them Sunday after Sunday," he said. Ministering to children about God was the one thing Harris enjoyed the most. He did not feel they learned simply through his lectures in church, but rather, they were more receptive if he spent time with them doing other things. "You work with kids, but you don't just come up storming and hit them over the head with a Bible," he said. "You become their friend, and you just love them. You love them if you never see them in Sunday school. You love them if you never see them do a good thing in their life. "I think you have to earn the right to be heard, and you have to earn it through love."

The relief was also met with some anxiety-the anxiety that came with finding a job in the real world or continuing on to graduate school. "I'm still numb," Beth Breeden, an Cwenton senior, said. "I have to get my masters, so I'll be starting that next." The condition of the job market was reviewed by Gary Cox, the executive director of the Council of Higher Education, in his commencement address to the 1987 graduates.

Theresa Halcomb, a Russellville senior, had her fiance waiting for her in Washington, D.C. The two had been waiting until she graduated to get married. "He feels great about it," Halcomb said, laugh- ing. "He was behind me all the way. He helped push me through." Halcomb said she would miss Western, though. Western would remain a part of each graduate, President Kern Alexander said at the commence- ment, which was Western's Igoth. "Tomorrow and next year and the rest of your life, you will look back on Western with fond memo- ries . . . people, parties, athletic events, and possibly even the library," Alexander said. "On behalf of Western Kentucky University," off he added, "I want to express the deep sense of pride we feel for you." Alexander and Western were not the only ones proud of the graduates. Parents also had special feelings. "I feel better than President Reagan, I'm sure," Ray Pierce of Glasgow said. Pierce's son, Anthony, was graduating magna cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering. "In his situation, he went to college a while, then worked a while. He did this on his own," Pierce said of his son. During the commencement ceremony, several graduates and faculty were honored for their achievements. Vice President for Academic Affairs Robert Haynes presented four members of Western's facul- ty with College Faculty Excellence Awards. janet Palmer, associate professor of administra- tive office systems, Betty M. Fulwood, associate pro- fessor of home economics and family living, Blaine Ferrell, associate professor of biology, and history professor Charles Bussey were honored with the awards.

Then they became "family," not by birth but by choice when Calvert became involved with the Big Brothersf Big Sisters Program in 1985. Calvert's interest in the program began when she decided to major in social work, concentrating on foster care for teenagers. Calvert, a Bowling Green senior, later became president of the Association of Student Social Workers at Western. But she had more than just an interest in her chosen field. She had been a foster child herself. On March 15, 1981, Calvert was taken from her mother and stepfather because of emotional abuse and turned over to the care of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. "I was going to run away on March 15, and that day a counselor at school noticed my problem and said, 'What's going on with you?' " Calvert ex- plained. That day she met her new social worker, Brenda Gildersleeve. "She was more influential than any foster parent I've had," Calvert said. Gildersleeve made sure Calvertis request to be kept at Warren East High School was met, even though Calvert was moved to five foster homes from age I5 to 19. "Every time I entered a new home, I stood there and faced a new 'family,' new bedroom, new cus- toms, new rules . . . I seemed at times to be more mature than many of my foster sisters. They often came to me seeking comfort and advice when things got roughf' Calvert said. "Most of my foster homes disrupted me more than my original home did." Since her mother had "parental rights," Calvert could not be adopted by any of her foster families. "I never wanted to be adopted," she said. "I just wanted to get out." Though she was unhappy at her foster homes, Calvert managed to pull top grades throughout high school. Her real mother's doubts about her ability and her real father's encouragement gave Calvert the incentive to achieve in order to prove herself. Dur- ing her senior year, Calvert placed third in the state speech tournament when she presented her oratory: "Foster Care-Good or Bad?" Then in 1984 Calvert made what she called a "clean break" by starting college at Western. She was on her own and independent from the state for the first time. "The first day of classes, I smiled and tried to make friends with people I met because I knew I didn't have anyone else," Calvert said. Calvert declared business as her major but, after taking a Career Advisement and Placement aptitude test, she discovered her interest to be in the social services. "Social workers usually begin their careers be- cause of personal reasons," Calvert said, although she didn't know of any other Western social work major who had been a foster child. "Now when people ask me my major, I proudly say 'social work' and know I've made the right choice," Calvert said.

Calvert explained that she was doing something with her life, and her mother didn't expect it. "That's because most foster kids don't even stay in school. Fewer still go to college," she said. In December, 1985, Calvert got some real-life experience helping others as a Big Sister through the Big BrotherfBig Sister Program. Calvert was matched with McCoy, a Bowling Green Junior High student. Even with her outgoing nature and knowledge of social work, Calvert was unsure about relating to McCoy. "I was nervous about her liking me," Calvert confessed. Calvert had requested a sister in an older age group because she could relate to teenagers better, she said. She felt they might be going through a lot of the adjustment crises she had experienced as a foster child. Calvert enjoyed being a Big Sis and tried to take McCoy to any activity she thought her little sister would enjoy. "When I asked her where she wanted to go or what she wanted to do, she always said, 'I don't care,' " Calvert explained. "That's because going anywhere is fun for her since her mother doesn't have a car, and they never get out of their neighbor- 'Nan 'si 1 hood." Then, after four months, Calvert realized that she and McCoy never really communicated, and McCoy didn't seem to appreciate anything Calvert did for her. "We always went somewhere all the time," Cal- vert said. "Cne day I picked her up and said, 'We're going to my room and we're just going to talk.' I told her that unless we could communicate, we wer- en't going to stay together. I told her that she was the little sister I wanted, and if we couldn't work things out, I wasn't going to get another one." Through a few tears, McCoy opened up to Cal- vert. j "After that day, everything was fine," Calvert said. "Now she even says 'thank you' every time we do something together." Calvert believed that the attitude she had around McCoy did more for her than words. "If you say you'll be there at 3, be there at 3, not 4:3o," she said. "Maybe they'll learn from you and be the same way some day. "You also have to love each other and get along with their family," she said. McCoy lived with her mother and two younger sisters. Her father visited her but not on a regular basis, Calvert said. "I think her contact with him is limited," she said. Since her father was frequently gone, McCoy was eligible for the Big BrothersfBig Sisters program. McCoy's younger sister had a Big Sister volunteer --..,,, ----.-......,- .,,,.-04 -,-f" last year who couldn't cope with the family or the atmosphere, so she dropped out of the program, Calvert said, which had been disappointing to the child. "A Big Brother or Sister should be ready to accept unclean clothes or unappreciation in order to cope with the less fortunate kids that are in the program," Calvert said. Calvert valued the time and learned from the challenges of being a Big Sister. "If you want something extra in life, you should try it. Anybody with an interest in kids should be a Big Brother or Sister," she said. Though Calvert felt being a Big Sister to McCoy had helped make her independent, she was also dependent at the same time. With no family in Bowling Green, friends meant more to Calvert than they did to most people. She thought friends might sense her "clinging" nature. "My friends are the most important part of my life," she said. Staying active in college and being with McCoy kept Calvert from becoming lonely. She and McCoy were dependent on each other in a way most real sisters never were. McCoy was helping Calvert learn about teens and responsibility, while Calvert was the very best role model for a Big Sister that McCoy could ever hope to have. They truly were their own little family. I -Story by Stephanie Schilling -Photos by Greg Lovett 57 Cindy Io Calvert 'I 32? , .

The two started James jauplyn when they got together and wrote eight original songs. While performing during one of the band's shows, Thompson keeps his play list at his feet. The list was used to remind Thompson of what songs were to be sung in which order. I l ames Iauplyn and the Park Avenue Dregs 5 packed their guitars into a room on the zznd l floor of Pearce-Ford Tower last fall and wrote ioriginal rock songs and practiced cover tunes. . By December, the band had played at the Sigma QPhi Epsilon and Delta Tau Delta fraternity houses, Lthe Top of the Tower restaurant and had opened lfor Nashville's Fur Trade at Picasso's where they played weekly. Bassist Michael Romanowski, a senior from Nashville, said James Jauplyn opened the Bowling Green music scene for other bands. "Before, everybody was in the shadow of Govern- ment Cheese," Romanowski said. "After we came along, other bands saw they didn't have to be as great as the Cheese to be liked. We could all be mediocre when we started." By mid-spring, other bands like Dixie Squid and Herman Nelson featuring Western students were part of Picasso's regulars. James Iauplyn began in September when lead singer and guitarist James Hall and lead guitarist johnny Thompson, both Nashville freshmen, Dregs o SOC Et teamed up and wrote eight original songs. "We were in rival bands in high school," Hall said. "We found out we were both going to Western and decided we ought to try to start something together." The pair later combined with drummer Pete Kar- bens, an Elizabethtown freshman, and Romanowski to round out the band. The name James Jauplyn and the Park Avenue Dregs reflected contrasting ideas that appealed to many different feelings, Romanowski said. This was what the band had hoped to do. "James is an average name, jauplyn reflects the '6os, Park Avenue reminds you of the ritzy and Dregs is a scummy word," Romanowski said. Before their first gig at the Sig Ep house, the band practiced in each of the members' dorm rooms - all in Pearce-Ford Tower. "We would turn down all the amps so we could sing over them, and Pete QKarbensj tapped on whatever book happened to be around," Thompson said. "It was kind of a pain, but it does save the ear drums." Hall, who wrote all the lyrics, said the band's originals tried to "shine a light on the darker side of humans." "What we write is music with a touch of realism. It sees life exactly how it is," Hall said. The band had written over zo songs by spring. Romanowski said james Jauplyn's music gave him a different feeling every time they played. "One time our songs will feel pop. Another ftimej it will feel real alternative. I guess mostly it's alternative, though," Romanowski said. Playing local gigs helped the band work its way into playing in Nashville. The band's goals in spring were to sign a record deal with a major record company. But Romanowski said "more realistically, for now our goal is to get our original songs down tight and put out an EP fExtended Playj. "We want to get good enough playing in Bowl- ing Green that we can play anywhere and stay tight."

But Glasgow senior Brian Laferty and his wife Allyson, a Louisville senior, jumped ahead in the model plan on May 19, 1985 and took "the plunge" into holy matrimony. "I planned on not getting marriedf' Allyson said. "I was going to be president of a large corporation." It all started when they were freshmen. Allyson met Brian when he was dating her suite-mate and, even then, they became best friends, she said. After dating for a year and a half, the couple became engaged and made plans to get married at the end of the summer of '85, Then the pair realized that they would probably spend as much or more money over the summer if they were just dating, so they shortened the engage- ment and moved the wedding date up to May. Brian said that even though his friends figured he would eventually marry Allyson, it was still a "major shock." "I was the first one to take the plunge," he said. 60 Student Life parents told her they would pay for her schooling as long as she didn't get married. But after the mar- riage, they decided to help her out, anyway. Financially, the Lafertys went against some of the horror stories that are sometimes scattered about newlyweds. For example, both had jobs when they were first getting on their feet. "I had a co-op job with GM fGeneral lVlotorsj," Allyson, who majored in human resources manage- ment, said. In the past school year, Brian, who majored in electrical engineering technology, worked a co-op job in the electronic division of the Eaton Corpora- tion, and Allyson worked as a personnel administra- tion assistant at the Dollar General Store's corporate headquarters. For the Lafertys, marriage life in their apartment seemed to differ dramatically from single life in the dorms. "You don't have the interruptions you have in a dorm," Allyson said. Their grades improved after the pair were mar- ried, too. This happened, they said, because they 4 After their supper, Brian tickles Allyson in their family room while their dog, Rags, looks at the excitement. The couple took the "plunge" into holy matrimony about two years before they planned on graduating. While Brian, an electrical engineering technology major from Glasgow, works on his senior project, a digital tacometer, Allyson studies her social psychology. Studying was a nightly event at their apartment. I 15' 7,, 'fl lil.. I rv-0-wgvw -. ' t iiimr-J . . - fir!!! :I l' ' ' A TX X XX X . N cept each other from procrastinating on things that ieeded to be done. Their marriage had not caused any confusion on zampus, except for the few times that Allyson was asked out. A big advantage, though, was that by getting married they accomplished one of the major future plans in life, Allyson said. "We can sit back and take it easy on our future plans," she said. The idea of children was one plan the Lafertys said they would hold off on until they got jobs and settled down. The couple lived together in a nice apartment and even had a dog as a pet. And depending on the situation, they said they would suggest to others to do exactly what they did. "If you really love the person," Allyson said, "then there will be a way to make ends meet."

Ben May, a junior from Owensboro, com- forted crying Keesha Deberry, daughter of Melanie and Jeff Deberry of Morgantown, in his role as Santa. The 7-year-old son of Lee and Trisha Smith of Morgantown, Ryan Smith, waits his turn to see St. Nick. More than 300 children from pre-teens to a two-weelc-old baby got a turn on Santa's lap during a six-hour shift. 1 ' 'wsu 5 af independent Clau n a world where millions of tykes believe in Santa Claus - even if just for a couple of weeks before Christmas - probably only a few ever imagine becoming Old Saint Nick. Playing Santa Claus for IO8 hours at Greenwood Mall wasn't a dream come true for Owensboro ju- nior Ben May. However, spreading Christmas cheer to more than ISOO boys and girls in the Bowling Green area was indeed self-satisfying, he said. "Some kids say, 'Are you the real Santa Claus?' he said. "I say 'Yeahf They say 'Oh.' " May was one of four men hired to impersonate Santa from Nov. I5 through Dec. 24. The mall provided the hallmark red, black and white uniform, makeup, and a white beard and moustache. May provided the ears to hear scores of wishes and the mouth to inform kids their wishes would not be granted if they weren't good and didn't obey their parents. To those who asked what he wore "when it's not Christmas," he replied, "I'm just a human being like you. I don't wear this suit every day of the year." May said he wanted the job because he enjoyed doing it for two days in 1985 when he substituted for a Kappa Alpha brother. "I enjoy working with the kids, so I told Irene fBates, marketing manager at Greenwood Nlallj that I'd be interested in doing it again." So he did it again. May said he didn't mind the 20 minutes it took to dress and apply makeup. He didn't mind the uncomfortable outfit, although, "It's thick and the padding adds to the heatf' he said. ,. . 'bf ij., . t.

So he sat in his big armchair in the 'jcandy landn of the mall's center court, wearing a happy face, waving to passersby and greeting children one by one. More than 300 children on a six-hour shift got a turn on Santa's lap, from pre-teens to a baby only two weeks old, he said. lVlost of them had no prob- lem pouring out their hearts' desires, but some did. "Some of the kids are so shy you have to milk 'em to get 'em to say three words," he said. "And then there are some who want to talk for three days. You have to kind of cut 'em off and say 'Thank you.' " May laughed. "One kid asked me if I had a steering wheel in my sleigh," he said. Playing the good guy from the North Pole wasn't always cool, May said. "You have your brats, the little kids that just get on your nerves," he said. "But most of the kids, they believe in Santa Claus. Some of them give me things. Most of them are paintings and drawings, and I keep all of them." May smiled and slightly blushed, then seemed saddened. "One girl gave me a pencil holder that she had wrapped," he said.

Dralce was laughing at the clowns during the intermission of the rodeo which was held to raise money for the Agriculture department. Competing in the fourth annual WKU championship rodeo, one of the cowboys in the bucking bronco competition uses his concentration to stay on the horse. A majority ofthe money that the department received went toward recruitment. 64 Student life ww null- Mi - Steve Hanks 4 I -i 5 ju t horsing around he blaring twang of country music grew si- lent.

"They should put us in a cigarette ad," said Susie Flanigin, a Big Horn, Wyo., sophomore and mem- oer of the Horseman's Association team in the wild steer race. f The steer race, at intermission on a Saturday jnight, gave Western students and faculty a chance to cowpoke in the fourth annual WKU Champion- jship Rodeo. It was held at Western's Agriculture Exposition Center jan. 23 and 24. Teams in the steer race were made of three peo- ple. Two guided the bucking animal across the arena pwhile one rode it. "Quick reflexes are the number-one thing," said Cadiz junior Michael Shelton, a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho team. Most steer racers were first-timers and lacked instructions in racing large farm animals. "We just asked how to hold onto it," said Cullen Page, a Sullivan, Ind., sophomore and AGR team member. Some were not informed of their participation until minutes before the event. :LA - - - Q77 re we doing something with a steer. asked Dr. David Coffey, agriculture professor and a last- minute faculty team recruit. Despite being dragged out of the concession stand to race steers, Coffey said he would do it again, expecially since the rodeo benefited the agriculture department. "I donft know many departments on campus whose students and faculty would dedicate a Friday and Saturday to do this," Coffey said. Students and faculty ran concessions, helped or- ganize the rodeo and participated in the steer race. "We are dedicatedf, Coffey said. Members of the winning team, the Horseman's Association, were Evansville, Ind., junior Dan Her- mann, Crestwood junior Mike jones, and Flanigin. Racing steer was just a modest beginning for Flanigin. "Hell . . . I'd ride a bull . . . No, I w0uldn't ride a bull,,' she said, "but I'm working on it." Flanigin was not the only one ready to wrangle cattle again. "Oh, I'd do it again tomorrow," Page said. Steer racing, however, was not the main event in the rodeo. Bulls, bruises and bozos also captured the crowd's interest. "I like the clowns best,,' said 8-year-old jeremy Peterson, a Greenville resident. "They're funny." Snow and icy conditions Saturday night prob- ably kept some fans away, Coffey said, but most who were there found it enjoyable. i - Herman Adams "I've been here all three times," said Madisonville senior Mike Johnston, "and each time it has gotten betterf' The crowd of 3,000 brought in about 32,100 for the department, said Dr. Luther Hughes, agricul- ture department head.

Aside from the financial benefits, the rodeo also provided "some publicity . . . from the department deciding to use something that's a community ser- vice," Hughes said. "The money's not the bottom line," Hughes said. "The bottom line is the ability to search out and recruit students."

Games like these were checked out of 99 cent movies in the Bowling Green area. all the residence halls' desks. -J Y I un that makes cent lmost every student in college experienced a problem that arose somewhere between the middle and the end of each semes- lzer-a lack of money. This lack of funds did not mean that students uit seeking entertainment, nor did it bring about a hortage of Friday nights. Most students felt they needed to get away from their homework at least once a week. As a result, finding ways to have inexpensive fun became a regu- lar pastime. "You can't go off campus and have a good time Rvithout spending a fortune," Phillip Woosley, a Bowling Green sophomore, said. l Western helped solve the situation with the con- struction of a new student center in 1970. Downing University Center offered the entire fourth floor as an area for students to relax and have fun without great expense. Many gathered on the fourth floor to play games l and pass away the time, among them Bowling Green freshman Kevin Counts. "It's excellent for the price," Counts said. Counts said he enjoyed playing the video games, bowling, billiards and pingpong at the center. DUC also offered darts, foosball and a wide-screen televi- sion. A theater on the ground floor showed second- run movies Wednesday through Saturday nights. The residence halls also had forms of entertain- -james Borcbuck ' ment available for students. Board games, footballs, basketballs and pingpong balls and paddles could be checked out at the front desk of each hall. Some had items such as ropes for tug-of-war. For those who would rather have watched than played, the ,315 activity fee paid with tuition entitled students to to every football, basketball, swimming, soccer or baseball game played at home during the regular season. Students could attend by simply showing their Western identification cards. Many enjoyed attending the sporting events. "I went to all the basketball games," Fort Mitch- ell sophomore Jeff Corbin said. Other students found amusement in assuming identities other than their own in role-playing, fan- tasy games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Arcanum. They also played Champions, a super hero game. "It's a great way to relieve tension, use your imagination and use your mind," LaGrange junior Josephine jacovino said. "If I don't have something to unwind with, I'll go crazy." These games were designed to let a person's imagination run wild while he completed a given mission. Some, however, preferred to sit back and let others do the role-playing for them. These students went to Gordon Wilson Hall, Van Meter Audito- rium or Russell Miller Theatre to see dramatiza- tions. Plays were more entertaining than movies for Nashville, Tenn., senior Ann Street. Street enjoyed theater more because the actors gave live perfor- mances in front of the audience. "It's good for learning," Julie Bunch, a Bowling Green sophomore, said. Bunch performed in stu- dent productions and was a member of the Dance Company, which was another way the university provided entertainment for less money. Student groups such as Interl-lall Council and University Center Board sponsored activities on campus, including dances, guest speakers and con- certs. Religious organizations also provided entertain- ment without a lot of expense. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes got students involved by offering dances and ice skating trips. However, the most inexpensive off-campus activ- ity was the 99-cent show at the Martin Theater in Bowling Green Mall. Like DUC Theater, it played second-run movies at a minimal price. There was almost always something happening around campus that did not cost much, if anything. Scott Taylor, director of student organizations and activities, said, "The people who say there is nothing to do just are not involved." I -Story by Brian Talbot ,F 1 .4-'-ef-W' ' '1"8'3l?F , . ,.i .

She was one of the many Western students who "suitcased," or went home on weekends. But this suitcaser had never spent a weekend on campus. Instead, she drove 105 miles home and back. "If I stayed up here, what would I do but stay in my room or see a movie?" Tipton, a senior elemen- tary education major, said. "There's so much more at home." Many people on her wing in Rodes-I-Iarlin Hall went home on weekends so she fit right in, she said. 'Tm not the typical college student. I'm not into parties or any sorority," she said. Tipton's interests at home included her family and her church. She had taught Vacation Bible School for three years at Leighs Chapel General Baptist Church in Greenville.

"She thinks I'm number one and watches everything I do. I have to watch what I do." Tipton described Renea as a sweet, loving person. "Everybody loves her and she loves most every- thing," she said. Her sister wrote to her while in study hall and looked forward to weekends when Tipton would be home. Tipton used to have time to go home in the middle of the week. "I never thought of my influence," Tipton said. "If I wasn't there, she'd be disappointed, but I don't think she'd be hurt." Tipton actually battled the elements once to re- turn home. It was Valentines Day weekend of 1986, "when everybody got stuck here because of all the snow," she remembered. "I was stuck in the Kentucky Street parking lot in back of Rodes fl-larlinj.

It wasn't a problem driving home once she was on the highway, she said. Suitcasing brought Tipton closer family ties and new responsibilities. Teaching a Sunday school class provided a special challenge for Tipton. "I get to try out different discipline techniquesf' she said. "You can't be harsh in Sunday school. You have to use positive discipline - no yelling or paddling. Not that I would paddle, anyway," she added. Tipton wanted a teaching position in Muhlen- berg County or any other surrounding counties. She wanted to stay close to her family and never leave the state because she loves Kentucky, she said. Commuting to work wouldn't be a problem. She had commuted before. She drove 27 miles every day for two years to attend Madisonville Community College in Hopkins County. She graduated in 1985 with an associate of arts degree. The day she graduated from high school, Tipton said she wasn't going to college. "One week later I signed up for community college," she said. Tipton couldn't imagine life without her beliefs or morals. "As a junior transfer student, I didn't know anyone, and my faith helped me feel not so alone," she said. "There was always someone to talk to." "It ffaith, is so ingrained in me because I was raised in a Christian home," she said. It was hard to balance priorities, she said. School, her religion and her family, all took time. "I always take my books home, just in case," Tipton said. She stayed in the dorm a few Fridays to study, but usually studied just as well or better at home, she said. "I'm here five days a week. School life shouldn't be first," but often was, she said. "I donit leave my religion at home. I read my Bible at school and pray." Being home for weekends enabled her to keep active with her church and to keep up with her family. She went camping with her family in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Florida, and she would like to travel to Europe someday. That would definitely raise her Chevette's odom- eter more than driving home each weekend.

Shepard was a contradiction T to the theory that all Western students went home for the weekends. l "My first two years I didn't have a car, and I I decided that I wouldn't go home for the first six or seven weeks," Shepard, a business management ma- jor, said. "My roommate went home every weekend, but I think that's the easy way out." Spending so much time at school seemed under- standable for a student from another state, but why would an in-state student choose to go home so little? "I like being away from home," Shepard said. "I like the responsibility." Responsibilities were part of the reason Shepard stayed in Bowling Green. Besides her job as a sales- person at Castner Knott, she had been a member of the Dance Company, Delta Sigma Pi business fra- ternity, the Western Flyers cycling club and the Bound lo Bowling Gree Western Players drama club. She also had the hon- ors of being a Homecoming queen candidate and a Kappa Sigma Calendar Girl. "I was always very involved in high school," she said. "It just seemed natural that I should become active at Western." Having so many interests kept Shepard so busy that she had little time to think about going back to Murray. "With all my activities and work," she said, "I have to utilize my weekends for studying." Although Murray was a college town, the thought of staying there to go to school never appealed to Shepard. "A lot of people from my school went to Murray, and my father is a teacher there," she said. "My best friends, however, mostly went out of state, so they are never at home either. "Initially, my parents did miss me a lot, but they both work and keep very busy," she said. "When I do go home we do something special. It's like a kind of homecoming."

Shepard planned to go into management training after graduation at an affiliate of Castner Knott in Louisville. "I must have spent Q2 percent of my time here at school," she said. "I think it's sad that so many students choose to go home all the time. If you go home so much, you get so attached that it's hard to break the ties when you graduate." If there was a weekend in Bowling Green when the dorms were empty and the streets deserted, Kate Shepard was sure to be around somewhere.

Do you want me to lower you down or do you want to untie and walk down?" That was how Mark Howard, a Bowling Green graduate student, would talk a climber up a cliff while Howard belayed. Belaying was a technique where one person on the ground held the rope attached to a climber, ensuring the safety of the climber. Howard had been climbing for three years, two of those seriously, he said. "There's nobody out on the rock but yourself, so anytime you do the climb, it's you doing the climb yourself. Nobody else does it for you," Howard said. The person who really opened up the rock climb- ing area of South Central Kentucky was jack Dick- ey, Howard said. Dickey, a Western graduate, wrote the climbers' guide for the area in 1981. "My goal before I leave here is to climb every climb that Jack climbed,'7 Howard said. "I have only three more climbs to make to do this." Dickey was from a generation of climbers in this area from 1979-1981, and a sub-second generation followed. "I am a third-generation climber fone of rdf,-' '41 ff On the "Sand in your pants" climb, Logan Leachman, a Bowling Green freshman, begins to pendulum after slipping as Bruce Cambron, a Louisville sophomore, looks on. Leachman was attempting to top-rope up the cliff. 72 Student Lafe O eight to IO peoplej, and I'm about ready to go," Howard said. "That's why I'm trying harder now to find people to start climbing, so the climbing will continue. "What we do is free climb," Howard said. "We use no mechanical means to make forward progress." Free climbing had three sub-categories: lead, top- rope and bouldering. "I've been lead climbing for a year now, and top- roping two," Howard said. Lead climbing involved one person trailing a rope and putting protection between cracks and wedges, clipping the rope into each piece of equipment. The climber placed this protection as far above his head as possible, so if he took a "screamer" fa type of fallj, the distance of the fall would not cause an injury, Howard said. Lead climbing was mainly for rocks that were too tall to top-rope. In the top-roping situation, a piece of webbing was tied to a tree with a pulley and two carabiners, or equipment that secured the rope to the rock, How- ard said. The rope was run from the ground up through the pulley and back down. At the bottom, the climber tied onto one side of the rope and the belay person managed the other side by holding the rope tight or letting out slack, whichever was necessary to keep the other person from falling. "The only thing a rope is used for is to keep you from falling and killing yourself," Phil Sansom, a Bowling Green resident and a fellow climber, said. "It's just for safety. "You have to forget about the height and just concentrate on the rock," he said. Another type of climbing was bouldering. "Bouldering is fun because you can get five or six feet off the ground and do a lot of very, very difficult moves," Sansom said. "A lot of climbers make careers of bouldering. "The biggest rule about climbing is ftoj let your feet do all the climbing," he said. "The best thing about the climb is you can go anywhere you want to." Rock climbing was rated by the Yosemite Deci- mal System. The system started at classes one and two, which judged degrees of difficulty in hiking trails. Classes three and four were bushwhacking, or cutting a trail while walking, and scrambling, which n the k meant crouching on steep inclines. Class five climbs, the most difficult, required protection and more cautious moves. The climbs started with a 5.1 and moved up to 5.12, according to Dickey's 1981 climbing guide. Since that time the scale moved up to 5.14. Only a select few in the world had accomplished this. "I would like to become a solid 5.11 leader," Howard said, "and be a second in .12. I'm a solid .9 leader right now, and I can second fassistj .Io and some .II,,, he said. "You see, there's a big mental difference between leading and secondingf' The most recent generation of climbers had add- ed only five or six first-known climbs. Part of the reason for the low amount of new routes was "be- cause of the limited amount of climbable rocks," Howard said. These new climbs included: Girls of Prey frating 5.10-l-Q, Ranger 45.9-Y, Ranger Puk- ing in Hell f5.IO'l'f5.II-J, Trivial Tie-In f5.7J, Smack f5.8j, Atomic Rasta j.9+,, and the most recent climb, Talsmatic f5.9-l-Q. After the completion of a new climb, the first person who had accomplished it got to name the climb. The rating was determined by a group deci- sion. Other names from past generation climbs includ- ed Sand in Your Pants, Superman, Journey to Ixt- lan, Son of Abyss, Greg's Regret, The Great Hand- hold joke, Unique Hypotenuse and Bottle Cap. Some routes were located so close together that if a climber was using a guide book, he could acciden- tally get on a wrong route. The names of climbs, even though they seemed humorous, could prevent a climber from getting on a route that was above his level of ability, Howard said. The names also served as a representation of the climb, revealing what the first climber experienced or how he made a difficult move. Naming a climb was second only to actually ac- complishing the climb. According to Sansom, the real accomplishment was "beating the difficulty, not necessarily getting to the top."

Clad in a leather jacket, khaki pants and dark glasses, the zo-year-old Dupin was ready to soar. Dupin, a Louisville native, started flight lessons in June 1986. Within a year, he planned to receive his pil0t's license. "In all other activities, there seem to be limits," Dupin said. "With flying, there doesn't seem to be any limit." Dupin had to pass medical, written, oral and pilot skills exams to obtain a license. Although there was no minimum flight experience required, students averaged 40 to 60 hours of lessons before taking the pilot's test. Instructed by pilot Randy Henderson, Dupin made weekly trips to Louisville for lessons at Bow- man Field. "I've always had the dream of flying," he said. "I never pursued it because I didn't think I'd have time. But I made the time because that's what I want to do for the rest of my life." Dupin's ultimate goal was to be a Marine Corps pilot. "I believe the greatest service I could do would be to serve my country, and that's how I could do it best," he said. Although he was not in ROTC, Dupin took ROTC courses and participated in Special Forces. "If you want to be a good pilot you have to have discipline and you have to know your mental and physical limits," he said. "Special Forces builds on that." His dream of being up in the sky was sparked at age two when he saw the first moon walk. Ever since that time, Dupin has wanted to have something to do with space or aviation. His favorite parts of flying were the steep turns, stalls and "stuff where you push the plane to its limit," he said. But his first lesson was more cautious. "I was scared, of course. It's a different experience having control of the plane," he said. "Landing was the scariest part." When enclosed in the loud. vibrating capsule, Dupin felt a freedom that few students probably would ever experience. "When you're taxiing down the runway, it feels like you're attached to the earth," he said. "When you pull up there's a feeling of release. It's peaceful and calm." Dupin and three men from his church bought a 180-horse power single-engine Grumman American Tiger airplane in the fall. Purchasing the white plane with red and blue stripes was another step toward turning his vision into a reality. When he wasn't taking lessons, he flew with other friends or his pastor, Garry Pate. He enjoyed the encouragement from his fellow enthusiasts. "It's nice to have someone who's almost as nuts about planes as I am to talk to about it," he said. But at 840 per class, taking flying lessons was not a cheap hobby. However, Dupin didn't regret the more than 51,200 he'd spent on learning how to fly. He had saved money from high school jobs and later decided to use it in pursuit of his dream. "If something means as much to you as flying means to me, then there's no sacrifice involved," he said. "That's what means the most to me right now." Flying was an endless excitement for Dupin. He would always find a way to fulfill his desires. "If it meant working three months to fly once, I'd do it," Dupin said. "You're in a different world when you're in the air."

The waitress showed them to a table, and customers ilooked and whispered to each other. The two wer- en't famous-just different. As an interracial couple, Noel Harris and Lesley 1 Brown were used to glaring looks, not only in restau- grants but other public places as well. l The reactions they got in Bowling Green were not pleasant, according to Brown, a Louisville ju- l nior. "There are people who outright stare. People turn around and whisper something to the person sitting next to them, and then that person will turn around and look," she said. Brown was more tolerant of those reactions be- fore she went to Harris' home in Chicago. "It didn't bother me that much before because I expected it. I knew that's how it was and that's what happens," she said. "But after I went to Chicago and saw that people don't have to act like that, fnowj it's not acceptable." Harris, a 22-year-old senior, transferred to West- ern with three other friends in 1985 from Triton Junior College in Chicago. He met Brown in Down- ing University Center during summer football camp. "She was about I0 feet away from me, and I was sitting with a couple of guys from the team and I said, 'That's going to be my girlfriend,' " Harris said. But Brown didn't see it that way. "He yelled something at me, and I got mad at him and he apologized later," she said. Harris had yelled, "I've seen you in one of my dreams," and Brown gave him "a look that could kill," he said. "I thought she had misunderstood what I said, so I told her I was sorry she had gotten offended." After the rough start, the two became friends. It wasn't until January 1986 that they became a couple. "When I first saw her, it was strictly physical. She looked great," Harris said. "As I got to talking to her, she was real nice, caring and honest. I knew all the time that we were going to get together." It took Brown longer to realize her feelings, but she knew after Christmas break in 1985 that it was more than friendship. "I knew how she felt. I knew she was starting to like me, but she wouldn't let me see it," Harris said. As a result, he decided to force her hand by saying he was going to date other girls. And it worked. just like other couples, the attraction between the two was based on personal characteristics and phys- ical traits. "I-Ie's kinda crazy," Brown said. "I-Ie's very easy to talk to, and he's warm, considerate and polite." "Even though we're from different backgrounds, we like the same things," Harris said. "I think we complement each other well. "She's teaching me a lot about here fKen- tuckyJ," he said. "I teach her about city life. I've had my own apartment since I was 18." Harris came to Western to play football and to slow down after the fast pace of city life. "I didn't know I was going backwards in time," he said. "I didn't know it was going to be so polarized." Although he was homesick at first, Harris It 1 f .- X' WP ', learned to deal with the change in lifestyles. Brown, however, became less tolerant of people's attitudes. "It's made me look at Kentucky a lot differently, more objectively," she said. The reactions came from both sides of the racial barrier. In Chicago none of Harris' friends had said, "You have a white girlfriend," he said. But at Western, people told him that because he had a white girlfriend, some thought he wanted to be white. "That's their idea," he said. "I'm Noel and she's Lesley." For Brown, zo, the negative views weren't just from society, but from her family as well. "They don,t understand. They don't know enough about black people or people of any other race besides their own," she said. "It's created quite a few problems between us." Harris took her to California to meet his mother and two sisters over Thanksgiving. During Christ- mas break, Brown met his other two sisters in Ohio. She felt nervous about meeting Harris' family, but they got along great, he said. "I was scared to death,', Brown said. "I know how things are in Louisville, and I expected maybe a little prejudice." Through their relationship, Brown had learned about people and realized which ones were her friends. "The friends that I have that I truly consider friends don't seem to care fabout who I dateQ," she said. "They know me personally and they know Noel personally, and they can get past seeing just colors." Like most successful pairs, communication was ay During a Lampkin Park picnic, Brown and Harris share a barbequed rib. "I try not to live in the future," Harris said.

"If something bothers me about something Les- ley does, then we can talk it out and vice versa," Harris said. "You've got problems in any relation- ship. It depends on how you work through them." Even though they sometimes disagreed, Brown appreciated the openness and respect in their rela- tionship. "We express our views," she said. "That's what I like about Noel. I can express my views. He may have different ones, but he doesn't get upset fabout minejf, Although Harris and Brown strived to under- stand one another, they were often misunderstood by other people. Overcoming the negative attitudes of some teachers, students and society was a chal- lenge most other couples didn't have to face. When the pair went to church, they had to decide whether to go to a black church or a white church. The one they attended was mixed. "You would think church would be somewhere where you could go and people wouldn't look at you funny or talk about you there. You would expect people to be nice to you, but that's not always the case," Brown said. On the horse swings, Harris and Brown spend a spring day in Lampkin Park. The two said that they often had trouble dealing with dating one another in Kentucky, although the attitudes in Harris' hometown of Chicago were more open. l 78 Student Life "Really, we've been pretty fortunate at churches," Harris said. "I just go to church to talk to God, and if a person's got a problem with me at their church, then we're not talking to the same God." Since they had been together, the couple had seen some changes. When they first went to West Hall Cellar, Brown was the only white person there, and she felt a little uncomfortable. "Anybody could come, but I guess for some reason everybody says, 'That's a black hangout,' " Harris said. "I guess some white students said, 'I-Iey, let me see." They came over there and fnowj the crowd is starting to mix and mingle. "It's changing. It's slowly changing," Harris said. "It takes time for people to change." Brown's view was not as hopeful. "Things won't change much until kids that are around now grow up and get away from their mothers and fathers who've been like this for years and years," she said. "They'll see that different people aren't that differ- ent. They're still people." For Harris, it was a matter of patience. "It's like anything. If you try to force somebody to do some- thing, they're going to do the opposite. If you say, 'This is me,' and you find out for yourself, they will," he said. As a couple, they did not have serious future plans. "I try not to live in the future," Harris said. "I think we've got a great relationship, and before we start thinking about anything else, we both should finish school." Brown planned to attend medical school, possibly in Chicago. She was interested in becoming an emer- gency room doctor. With a degree in psychology, Harris wanted to work in a clinic with juvenile delinquents for a year. I-le also planned on getting a masters at a school in Chicago. Dating one another was a learning experience for both of them, but according to Harris, there wasn't much difference in dating someone from another race. "It depends on where you're at," he said. "I think it's a little more enriching because from someone from your own race you get the same stuff," Harris said. "We get two different versions of America."

The season's productions included 'fMeasure for Measure," "When Are You Comin' Back to the Five and Dime, jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," and "Don't Count Your Chickens Before They Cry Wolf." The department's opening mainstage produc- tion, "Measure for Measure," was the first Shake- speare play in six years to be performed at Western. "When Are You Comin' Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean," was done by the department as a Series Ioo, a type of production which the department had not done for five years. A Series Ioo was a production done entirely by students. The budget was managed by students as well as directing, acting and overall production. According to Jackson Kesler, professor of theater and communication, a Series loo received more tech- nical support than a regular studio production. While the usual studio productions were showcases for student work, a Series loo play normally lasted longer and was intended for public scrutiny. The show was set in a "run-down five and dime store out in the middle of a deserted Texas town," Bowling Green senior Bart Lovins, the show's direc- tor, said. The set was complete with James Dean memora- bilia, a sodaifountain and a counter with stools like those found in downtown Bowling Green in Wool- worths. The play revolved around the "James Dean Dis- ciples" and the main character, Mona. played by Owensboro senior Michelle Ayer. Mona was an extremely devoted fan of the late James Dean, claim- ing to have had Dean's baby. The show included flashbacks between the early '50s and the mid-'7os. They helped explain that Mona didn't have Dean's baby but had the child of loc, Mona's friend and member of the Disciples. By the story's end, Mona had discovered that joe was a homosexual who had a sex change operation and came back to the five and dime as Jo Anne for the Disciples' reunion. According to Lovins, the show was done primar- ily because of the number of female characters. Sev- en women were leaving the theater department and this gave them the opportunity to perform. The show was "a full-length production done in Gordon Wilson Theatre with a produceable budget that will allow us to do a more well-rounded produc- tion," Lovins said. The cast did research in preparation for the show, including watching old james Dean movies. 'Tm happy with the production," Lovins said. "It could have been better. There's so many things I could do differently as a director." Kesler thought the show was very credible. "It was well-directed and acted," he said. "The faculty wouldn't allow the student to do a production if he weren't qualified." One of the more popular productions of the year H 5 X nina, ' . fx 'r.

Street had a leading role in the play. was "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The play took place in a mental institution and revolved around characters, many of whom had supposedly been committed but who had actually admitted themselves. All of them hated the place but none had the courage to break away. Randle P. McMurphy, played by Gary L. Mar- lin, a Henderson freshman, was a character pretend- ing to be crazy so he could be committed to avoid a jail term. He tried to show the other men how to fight for themselves. The show dealt "a lot with conformity-breaking human conformity," Ann Street, a Nashville senior who played Nurse Ratched, said. "Nurse Ratched was like the god. She kept the place going. The whole show was about the conflict between Nurse Ratched and McMurphy." One of the actors, Matthew Foreman, who played Chief Bromden, was forced to choose be- tween keeping his part in the play or leaving the football team. Foreman's role as Chief Bromden was one of major importance since "Chief" was the first inmate to break from the institution. According to Street, Foreman had to rehearse with the show five nights a week. Foreman, a freshman from Indianapolis, Ind., and a theater major, decided to stay with the show. He was then asked to leave the football team and lost his scholarship to attend Western, Street said. The Children's Theater Touring Company, pro- moted by the Capitol Arts Center, presented shows for children not only in the Gordon Wilson The- atre, but also on tours. The touring company rehearsed for eight weeks and toured for the remaining eight weeks, Don Combs, professor of communication and theater and director of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," said. The company charged the schools S50 for each performance. Rather than restricting the performances to cam- pus, Combs said they toured schools because they felt they could reach more children. Aside from the touring company, only one other show was performed off campus. "Laundry and Bourbon," directed by Scott Denny, a junior from Terre Haute, Ind., was played at HCA Greenview Hospital in Bowling Green during a luncheon for volunteer staff members. Overall, the theater department did 22 produc- tions. "We felt it was a very successful season because we had good attendance, a good variety of roles and good student direction as well as faculty direction," Kesler said. Combs said the shows were selected for the the- ater students. "They fthe showsj were all training vehicles for students," he said. "It is the laboratory for them as far as what they do in class."

The group, which performed in early September, iwas the first band of the year. They performed in lVan Meter Hall, attracting a crowd of about 500 j people, FCA President Phillip Woosley, a Bowling jGreen junior, said. ' The band played their own electronic European style of music. Woosley thought the concert was such a success that he would have liked to join with the University Center Board to do more concerts. UCB scheduled most of the concerts throughout I the year. UCB's first concert venture came in mid-Septem- ber when The Fabulous Thunderbirds performed in Garrett Ballroom and astounded about I,5OO peo- 7 le. P "That's the kind of program I would like to have more often," UCB chairman Tim Harper, a Cave City senior, said. The band, whose latest album was listed as one of Billboard's Top-10 worldwide money-makers, fell into the hands of UCB at an affordable price. "We were able to cut production costs by block- dating with Eastern fKentucky Universityjf' pro- gram director Bennie Beach said. Block-dating meant the Thuderbirds performed for both Eastern and Western while the two shared reduced production costs. Beach received word that the Thunderbirds, who were traveling with Bob Seger, would have a few open dates. With student tickets being sold at the door for 34, the show was sold out. The next "fabulous" group UCB sponsored was The Fabulous Silvertones in October. Harper said most of the success of this concert was credited to Midnight Mania, an event held the same night marking the first day of practice for the Hilltopper basketball team. "We had planned on having it," Harper said. "It just so happened that Midnight Mania was the same night." Almost zoo people watched the group perform songs from the '50s and '60s in Downing University Center Grill and then crossed Russellville Road to see the new basketball team practice in Diddle Are- na. In November, Louisville band Nervous Melvin and the Mistakes returned to Western. "We had brought them in earlier," Harper said. "We got a real good reception with that." This time, Nervous Melvin was in Garrett Ball- room performing their classic rock songs for a dollar admission in front of a crowd of about 300. In the spring UCB went for a different angle toward concerts. After attending conferences and seminars specifically aimed at helping colleges look- ing for entertainment, UCB members saw Innova- tion. Innovation was a black, segmented group "that everyone could enjoy," Harper said. The group performed in the Garrett Ballroom and played "par- ty music that you couldn't help dancing to," he said. Despite mostly successful concerts, UCB's year ended on a damp note. The Splash Bash held in late April was supposed to include a volleyball tournament, limbo and a reggae band. But the Splash Bash had too much splash. It rained and, although the band still tried to play in spite of wet steel drums, the crowd didn't last. "Anytime we plan something outside, it rains," Beach said. But even with the last concert ending on a downbeat, the indoor concerts were "fabulous" I -Story by Fred White ,551 id i 'J hi ' Xu..-,ti-r-I 'M 1 - --+--- -Scott Bryant ' -Royce Vibbert In the lights and fog, Servant lead singer Sandie Brock per- On the lawn next to Downing University Center, The Trini- forms a concert at Van Meter Hall.

"I wanted to ask him how it felt when he was in space, but I didn't because others were asking big, important questions," Bowling Green freshman Daniel Duffy said. Duffy ate dinner with Pete Conrad, a retired astronaut and the third man to walk on the moon. Conrad was on campus Sept. 23 to lecture on his experiences and the future of the space program. Thirty-two seconds into flight on the Apollo I2 mission, the capsule was hit by lightning, Conrad said during his speech. "If you listen to the voice tapes, you'll hear a lot of laughter and that's because we were scared silly," he said. "He was well-received," Paul Campbell, an assis- tant professor of physics and astronomy, said. "He did a good job of telling where we are in the space program." Conrad's talk launched a wide-ranging series of lectures at Western. During the spring semester, the Nobel Laureate Lecture Series was inaugurated by David S. Greer, recipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize and Dean of Medicine at Brown University. Greer spoke about the nuclear arms race and its effects on human life. Every city with more than 25,000 people would be targeted during a nuclear war, Greer said before a crowd of about 500 on April 23. "Even Bowling Greenf' he said. Greer also attacked military spending for nuclear weapons. "We could feed all those people fgoing hungryj for four to eight billion dollars,"he said, comparing it to the 8800 billion spent each year for nuclear armaments. "It played on my mind the whole week after- wards," Danville junior Alan Ross said of Greer's speech. "It made me much more aware of the threat of nuclear warf' The University Center Board helped sponsor several lectures throughout the year, including Dick Gregory's talk on the problems in America and Carl Kell's speech, "The Rhetoric of Coke." Gregory, an author and nutrition expert, had a good turnout for his speech, Fort Thomas sopho- more Lindsay Mosser, UCB's public relations chair- person, said. "I can't really say it was on one topic. It was on a number of things," she said, citing religion, health and racism as some of the areas covered. In a repeat performance from the previous year, Carl Kell took to the podium to speak on Coke and its new approach to marketing. Kell, a speech and communications professor, talked in Center Theater about the research done on Coke's decision to change formulas in 1985. The Rudy-McNulty Folklore Lecture Series ini- tiated by the folklore department brought in Daniel Patterson, the chairman of the folklore program at the University of North Carolina. Patterson spoke on the roots of southern gospel music. The roots of gospel music, largely a 20th century phenomenon, began in the spirituals of the 18th and 19th centuries, Patterson said. Three gospel groups performed after Patterson's talk, which took place in Van Meter Auditorium. "We were pleased by the attendance, and we were pleased that a lot of gospel musicians turned out to see it," Michael Williams, an assistant professor of communication and theater, said. Aside from the larger lectures, numerous smaller talks were given throughout the year. Continuing education lectures in the area of nurs- ing were offered with topics ranging from chemo- therapy to caring for hospitalized children. Other speakers included Vivian Williams of Ox- ford University speaking on structural change in the English educational system, Michele Salisbury, an instructor of nursing, discussing health care in Ecua- dorg and Mike Morse, head of Western's photojour- nalism sequence, talking on the future of still video in photojournalism.

The slowly melting snow was a sight that Barnas, Widodo, and Yusfi Malayusfi, a sophomore from Bandung, Indonesia, would not get to see again after returning to their homeland. The three roommates had been in the United States since the summer of 1986, when they had their first contact with American culture at the University of Kentucky QUKQ. "The first time we came to Lexington, we stayed at the dorm at UK and we didn't cook for ourselves," Barnas said. "It was just a hard time to adjust to the food. "In the dorm we cannot cook and we only eat hamburger and American food like that, and some- times my stomach gets upset." Within two weeks the men had moved to an apartment and were able to cook for themselves. It was not until the spring semester that they came to Western. Bowling Green introduced the three to a Ken- tucky that they had not seen in Lexington. "The very first time fwe werej in Bowling Green and we spoke to our landlord, we did not know what he said because he was ffromj Kentucky," Widodo said, referring to the Kentucky accent.

"To learn another culture other than our own culture is very important, I know, to me," he said. But acquiring knowledge was easier than learning American culture. "We want to mix with Americans, but actually we cannot find an American who does," Barnas said. "I tried to offer my friend in my computer class . . . I asked him, 'Come, come to my apartment and we can study together like that.' "But every time I ask him to come to my apart- ment, he says, 'Oh, next time, next time.' " "It seems to me very hard to make a friend with a classmate," Malayusfi said, "even if that's only to 'r make a study group to study together. Maybe they are busy or they don't need it, I donit know." "Actually, we need friends to talk to about prob- lems," Widodo said. Mixing with Americans was a problem many international students encountered, Kymbriti said. "It's very difficult to make friendships when on weekends when they have more time, many students are gone,', she said. Being so far from home did not help the situa- tion. "It's hard to understand, maybe, because actually we have family in Indonesia, and we miss our fam- ily," Widodo said. "We get homesick. Especially for the first six months here we have big problem with that with our family," Barnas said, his broken English becoming clearer. "For me, myself, I feel like I don't have anyone fwhoj can help me over here. "Just little problems can make me hurt, so I write letter to my family like this, fandj always complain about everything. I said to my family, 'You have to write letter every week to me, however I didn't write letter to you.' " Widodo and Malayusfi each had someone else to write to in Indonesia. Both were married shortly before leaving for the United States. "It's hard for me to split from my wife," Widodo said. "I just had a daughter in January," Malayusfi said. "I don't even know her. I just see her in picture, so, you know, I miss them. I'm still homesick." Like Barnas, Malayusfi and Widodo found let- ters to be a relief from the homesickness. "For me, far away from my wife, I'm used to it," Widodo said. "But if we don't get letter, we worry about them." Malayusfi got mail from his wife every two weeks, but the latest news about his newborn daughter had not come in a month. "It makes me feel sadf' Malayusfi said. "But I know why I'm here." The dripping of the icicles had grown faster, but the ground outside was still frosted with snow. Barnas sat back and thought for a second, then spoke as if he were reading a line straight from "The Grapes of Wrath." "My father said, 'It's a sacrifice to be a success' "So I remember that."

A village of small cottages, called Cherryton, was con- structed during 1919-1920. The village was on the south side of campus north of Virginia Garrett Avenue. According to Gordon Wilson Jr., a professor of chemistry and son of the man for whom Gordon Wilson Hall was dedicated, most of Cherryton rot- ted away between 1947 and 1957. The faculty House was built in 1920-21 and served as a student center for seniors, although un- derclassmen were later allowed to use the center. The cedar logs used in the construction of the house came from trees that stood in the area where the bleachers of the Ivan Wilson Fine Arts Center now stand. The trees died due to an infection of bag worms, prompting their use as material for the Fac- ulty House. Art instructor William Weaver, who came to Western in 1961, recalled the days he spent in the Faculty House. "Western has lost a certain togetherness it had when the faculty was small. We used to see everyone every day in the Faculty House drinking coffee," he said. Many faculty members have since been brought in from far-reaching areas, Weaver said. "Western has changed a lor from the physical point. The faculty has grown and Western has become more cosmopolitan." I To provide extra space needed for housing, cottages were built in 1919-1920. The community of cottages, located on the south side of campus, was called Cherryton. I gg --Am - - ----47g,5W , ,,,, 7,7 ,,.. M., .. After the first zo years, Western began to ex- pand. The land and buildings of Ogden College, a male college, were merged in 1928. It was in the area where the Kelly Thompson Science Complex was later built. Many of those who knew Western then still carry a feeling for the school more than 60 years later. Francis Richards, who graduated from Western in 1925, was the first editor of the College Heights Herald newspaper. "I think the prettiest part of Western is Van Meter on the hill," Richards said. Kelly Thompson, Western's third president, said his favorite part was the entire campus because, "I've been so involved with it. I love it." Florence Schneider Hall, first called West Hall and then White Hall, was built in 1929. As the school grew, the need for a larger library became apparent. To solve the problem, the gymna- sium built in 1931 was changed into a library in 1965. Margie Helm began working in one of the librar- ies in 1920 and later became a director of the new library. The building was eventually named after her due to her many years of library service. "I like working with books. I like students," Helm said. "I enjoyed working with faculty. "It fWesternQ has grown and improved. I like the way they have kept the same spirit," she said. "Dr. Cherry used to say, 'Spirit makes the master.' " 1937 7 --- ..... . .... ..... ...Y W W -lnuuuluuur 3, nu- As Western continued to make progress, the campus began to take on its present appearance. One of the school's landmarks, Henry Hardin Cherry Hall, was built in 1937. The building was named after Western's founder and took the place of Recitation Hall. Cherry Hall was the last major building to be constructed before World War II. Shortly after the completion of the hall, Cherry died. While his ambi- tious plans were not completed, many of his plans had become reality by the time of his death. When Claude Pickard, professor of geography and geology, began attending Western in 1948, he said structures on campus included Cherry Hall, two buildings on the Ogden campus, Gordon Wilson building and the old gym. Pickard started teaching in 1957. "It fcampusj has changed a whole lot," he said. "The school is more functional for a university. It cloesn't have as much natural beauty it had when you put the buildings in." b 9 1 H Lrtory Past Com. s 1-P+: f :rs-H '-sifxff :-s-"2:.sf:s2. .- .vw . . s asf.a::a5sfsssefa.-gas' : :-'s15r:- -2191515 :Zu-iii.v:::s,::wz-s,'s:A.. . -'M M -it -f -V - - , .......... m.s..:,.--s ty-.Ms-.ia.is-.,a.'..-.M,s....sssm-,..-.,.,.. ,. a ,. a ,O ..,.. ....

Along with the introduction of poodle skirts and rock and roll in the '5os, more construction appeared on campus. However, the campus seemed to be taking a rest after the strenuous activity of the past few decades. The only structure built during this time was McLean Hall. It was constructed in 1949. In the early '5os, there were only two other resi- dence halls on campus-Potter and Schneider. Several student organizations were established, including fraternities and Associated Student Gov- ernment. These were begun in part by former Dean of Student Affairs Charles Keown. Keown said that he had been concerned with more than just student activities. "I had an interest in Western as a whole institu- tion," he said. "I wouldn't want to single out one part." Keown said that much of what went on during this decade occurred during the presidency of Kelly Thompson. "There was more of a personal side to the school then because of its size," Thompson said. Although Western had fallen into an earlier slump as far as progress for the campus was con- cerned, things picked up and began to take shape. Beginning in 1955, the activity became "fast and hectic," Thompson said. "Seven buildings were under construction at the time," he said. Looking back through the years, construction grew by leaps and bounds. Since 1947, 38 buildings had appeared on campus. mvzmmffwe.:-.z:f.-.s:.2:e:wwW-a V Ta alumna ,x 'sa 'xt .11-'36, In 1926, the Home Economics Building was constructed in the area now known as Helm Library parking lot. The building was later renamed Industrial Education Annex and then was torn down in 1983. I9 In the early '5os, new buildings included the Paul L. Garrett Student Center, which later became Gar- rett Conference Center, and two residence halls. For the next decade, Western continued to grow as the campus gained another I0 residence halls and seven academic buildings. Western "really began to blossom," Wilson said. In the fall semester of 1966, the school's enroll- ment grew to 8,7o3. A year later the enrollment increased to IO,I49. "Western grew in size during the '6os. It was the biggest time period for buildings," Robert Wurster, associate professor of English, said. Wurster became associated with Western during ' Munn, ""s' A 4 ---' ' Y -"' ' 'r' 4 j 'Wig E ,IW the time the school had advanced from a state col- lege to an official university in 1966. According to Thompson, who was president then, the change was welcomed all across campus. "I felt thrilled to death," he said. "There was a celebration all across campus. Everyone was happy that the legislature had done that." Wurster said students had seemed to care more then. "Students in the '6os . . . were very involved, very concerned, not just nationally. They had more in mind than just getting an academic education," he said. "I feel that we've lost something. We've lost the personal camaraderie between faculty and students. I miss the '6os. They were the worst and the best of times." Wurster said he felt Western had not changed for the better. "Our biggest concern has more to do with grades and the money," he said.

XY- 5 l More residence halls appeared on campus. At lthis time predominantly all of the south side of i campus resembled the present appearance of West- l ern. The years between 1967 and 1977 brought the 'construction of the Central Wing of Thompson Science Complex as well as Wetherby Administra- l l tion Building, L.T. Smith Stadium and the parking I structure. Douglas Keen Hall, Pearce-Ford Tower and 1 Hugh Poland sprang up on campus. This time period also brought on the construc- 1 tion of the Ivan Wilson Fine Arts Center, Jones- Q Jaggers Laboratory School, Dero Downing Univer- l sity Center, Environmental Sciences and l Technology Building and the College of Education 1 Building. , "There has been some building. There was an l increase in enrollment and a general change in stu- ! dent attitude," Registrar Freida K. Eggleton said. "During the ,708 students were more vocal." 1977 In the last decade of Western's celebration of its 80th birthday, the expansion ceased as far as build- ings and structures were concerned, but enrollment continued to increase. In the fall semester of '86 the student enrollment was 1 1,7o7, and in the spring of '87 the student body grew to I2,257. "I rhinlc Western has changed tremendously. I started school in the College High School in 1957- 58. I'm just 34. I'm not an old guy," Bennie Beach, Downing University Center program director, said.

Beach said that he could recall when the agricul- ture barn was in the spot where Pearce-Ford Tower was located. He also said cows used to graze where the College of Education Building stands today. Although nearly all of Western's expansion had occurred before this decade, several structures had been planned for the campus or were still in the planning stages. One such structure was a Memorial Tower, which was originally a part of Cherry's future plans for Western. The tower would have been located in front of Cherry Hall. The structure was to have been sur- rounded by a waterfall and would have housed a clock near the top. Other structures that were to become a part of Western's campus were a zo-story classroom build- ing and a pedestrianway. The classroom building was supposed to be built in 1965. Production on the building was stopped due to the fact that the proposed elevator would not have been able to hold the weight of the student body between class changes, University historian Lowell Harrison said. If the pedestrianway had been built, it would have reached from the LT. Smith Stadium over to a point on the 12-acre tract on the west side of University Boulevard. The purpose of the pedestrianway was to serve as a student safety precaution. The structure was never developed any further than the gathering of a few ideas. Although some of the structures on campus nev- er got any further than the ideas, Western's campus developed immensely, especially within the last forty years. Each building and structure aided in making Western's celebration of 8o years a potpourri of history. I -Story by Gina Kinslow Ya., .,..

I "I think it's good, especially for freshmen," Whitney Auslander, a Louisville junior, said. With the incoming freshmen in mind, the idea of an organizational fair was first proposed by the Spirit Masters in the spring of 1986. Ac- cording to Kim Cushenberry, a Horse Cave sophomore and chairperson of the fair. committee, the fair's purpose was to show- freshmen the many ways Pointing at the sign-up list, Georgetown sen- ior Brian Martin accepts applications for the United Black Students during the Organiza- tion Fair. Martin sat in front of DUC. ed Student Government, Interhall Council, University Central Board and the Spirit Masters. "Let them get involved because the dropout rate is so high," Cushenberry said. Letters were sent to 156 organiza- tions and of those, 30 responded. Ac- cording to Barkley Payne, a Bowling Green senior and public relations chairman for the Spirit Masters, the letters should have gone out earlier because some organizations had al- ready stopped meeting for the year. After a survey was collected from participants, the biggest suggestion was to have the fair earlier in the school year. "We'd like to do it the first of school," Cushenberry said. For many of the organizations, it was exposure. The International Student Organi- zation wanted to let others know it wasn't just for foreign students. "Everybody can learn from each other, and the foreign students can adjust to the new culture in America," said Vishwesh Bhatt, a freshman from India and vice president of the club. Several organizations were quite successful with their freshman and sophomore sign-ups. "It was phenomenal," Payne said. "We had 33 names of interested fresh- men and sophomores for recruit- ment." The Phonathon booth used the fair as a chance to introduce their new logo. Other organizations such as the Pearce-Ford Tower sold cookies to promote councils in all the residence halls, while University Center Board refreshed their passers-by with Coke and Sprite. From an evaluation taken among the participants, one third were re- turned. Results showed that an aver- age of 350 students visited the booths. Most students came because they were already at the student center, Cu- shenberry said. Delta Sigma Pi, a pro- fessional business fraternity, suggested having it inside. Because of the positive results of this windy day, plans were already un- derway to make the second annual or- ganizational fair even bigger and bet- ter.

The AGRICULTURE EDU- CATION CLUB was a service-ori- ented club established to help its mem- bers develop the skills necessary to succeed in their field. The group also explored things that had a direct im- pact on careers in the agriculture edu- cation field. One major change for the club was a name change from Vocational Agri- culture Educational tothe Agriculture Education Club. "We wanted to expand" Mike jones, a LaGrange junior, said. "We wanted to cover the whole picture, not just the vocational aspect." One of the major activities of the organization in conjunction with the other agriculture department clubs, was the WKUf Future Farmers of America QFFAQ Field Day. The club was primarily responsible for the co- ordination of events and notification of the high schools that planned to participate. The group was also involved in Food for America which had approxi- mately 2,ooo participants. This event involved teaching students about how food was grown and raised for con- sumption. "Members prepare lessons about where food comes from," Dr. Peter Dreisbach, visiting assistant professor, said. "They teach it to high school students, who in turn teach it to ele- mentary school students, and they in turn visit and tour the WKU farm." Another event the Ag-Ed club was involved with was a leadership confer- ence, which usually had between 8oo and Izoo participants. This gave high school students exposure to leadership development and gave them the chance to meet state and national lead- ers in FFA. This had been the first leadership conference of its kind in the area, and many colleges and institutions were starting to pattern themselves after the club's example. "Ag-Ed is a close-knit organiza- tion," Jones said. "We are a family. It isn't one individual's ideas, it's a group effort." Of all the departmental clubs, the AGRONOMY CLUB was the one to pick if one had an interest in soil and plant science. The Agronomy Club members at- tended the national meeting of the American Society of Agronomy in New Orleans, where they went to pre- sentations, exhibits and graduate assis- tant interviews. in thei Members built up their club trea- sury by fund raising. They worked in the concession stand at the Agricul- ture Exposition Center during special events, such as rodeos and the outdoor boat show. The BLOCK AND BRIDLE club was one of 70 nationwide chap- ters established for people interested in the animal sciences which included horses, swine, sheep, and dairy and beef cattle. The club was open to "anybody that is generally interested in the ani- mal science field,', Terry Burks, a Glasgow senior, said. "They have to go through an initiation to be a mem- ber of the club. Through his participation in the club, Terry Burks received Outstand- ing Junior Member of Westernis cam- pus chapter and went on to compete against 75 national chapters. He placed fourth as Outstanding Junior Member of Block and Bridle in the Nation. Among the many activities that the club was involved in, the Little North American, an all-species showmanship contest, was the most important one for the club. Along with this contest, they had a Little North American week. During this week students partici- pated in activities such as livestock judging, a cookout and a barnyard -l 1 l '1 l 1 4 l l r field 3 rodeo. On the final day, the actual judging of the Little North Ameri- can, called the round robin, fwhere each contestant was matched against l every other contestantj was held. The contestants were ranked throughout the week upon their showmanship abilities in all the species categories. At the end of the competi- tion, an overall winner was named Su- preme ChampioniShowman, and the runner-up was Reserve Supreme Champion Showman. To top off the year, the group add- ed a new advisor, Dr. David Stiles. The Block and Bridle offered a way to meet other people in the animal sciences. Along the same line, only more diverse, was the COLLE- GIATE 4-H CLUB. The Collegiate 4-I-I Club was open to everyone. It was for students who were interested in meeting new people from other states, colleges or coun- tries. They functioned as a service- oriented organization which planned its programs around personal develop- ment and leadership growth. The Collegiate 4-H Club was out of commission for three or four years before being reinstated with the elec- tion of officers for the '86 fall semes- ter. The interest in the club was caused by students who had been members in other area clubs before attending Western. This brought!

Concern for children in the area distinguished Western's 4-H Club from other campus organizations. Members showed their concern by helping the Girls Club and local 4-H'ers in Warren County. "We have between I2 to I5 mem- bers," said Sandra Siddens, a Glasgow sophomore and the club's president. "For a collegiate 4-H Club, it is doing pretty well." The DAIRY SCIENCE CLUB was open to all who wished to learn about the dairy industry. Exper- ience in farming was not required. "We try to use the university as a recruiting tool to get more students here fin the dairy departmentj and more people interested in the dairy industry and dairy products," Steve Bean, a Gamaliel graduate student, said. The Dairy Science Club had many activities, such as a consignment sale, during the fall semester. They had people send livestock to be sold, and the Dairy Club was responsible for the upkeep of the animals. Members groomed, milked and prepared the animals for the sales. They also took trips to Canada and Florida to observe the different aspects of raising live- stock herds. The Dairy Science Club had a cheese sale just before Christmas to promote Kentucky as an important dairy state. They sold cheese that had been made in Horse Cave. Among their many achievements from the school year, the group did considerably well in the contests that they entered. "This fThe Hoard's Dairyman Judging Contestj is the largest judg- ing contest in the world," Bean said. "There are more participants in that than any of the other judging con- tests." The club had a team place first and a team place third in the contests, along with gaining four honorable mentions. The group also did well in the Na- tional Judging Contest in Wisconsin, where they placed eighth out of 33 teams and won in the Holstein divi- sion. They also had one member, Craig Givens, a Greensburg senior, place as High Individual in the Hol- stein Breed and second in the Guern- sey Breed. Between these contests and their overall achievements, the Dairy Club was one of the outstanding clubs of the agriculture department. The HORTICULTURE CLUB was for those with an interest in plants, community involvement and the trade in general. The purpose of the organization was to bring students Dairy Science Club together who desired to learn more about horticulture, to bring insight to the opportunities and to make others aware of the educational and career fields that were open. The club offered hands-on exper- ience with annual and perennial bed- ding plants. They also had these for sale to the community and made them available to Western for planting pur- poses on campus. They had plant sales and ran the concession stand at the Ag Expo Center to help raise money for the club. One of the main things the club participated in was the beautifica- tion project that helped the Bowling Green Beautification Commission. Members also took trips to Louisville, Nashville, Tenn., and Columbus, Ohio, to attend meetings for florists and nursery owners. To bring the eight agriculture or- ganizations together, the Horticulture Club sponsored a semester volleyball tournament within the agriculture de- partment. This event, called the Greenthumb Invitational, was held at the beginning of the fall semester as a round robin double-elimination. Along with the other livestock groups, the INTERCOLLE- GIATE HORSEMAN ASSO- CIATION was open to any person who was interested in riding and horse judging. Members were asked to pay semes- ter dues of 82.50. The group's mem- bership was up to approximately 30 to 35 members, nearly double what it had been the previous year. "It probably doubled because of the enthusiasm for the riding team," Dan Hermann, an Evansville, Ind., junior said. "Charles Anderson also helped by announcing the club to the equitation classes." Members supported the riding team by putting on a walking show and a quarter horse gaming show. They also ran the concession stand at the Ag Expo Center. The money raised went toward trips they took to major thoroughbred barns in Lexington. These trips helped club members to gain exper- ience in the horsemen's industry. "You don't have to be an all-out ag student or complete horseman," Her- mann said. "It's for everyone. There are riders that are in completely differ- ent fields." Members of the agriculture organi- zations weren't just working with ani- mals and planting seeds. These orga- nizations accomplished much more with the awards they received throughout the nation and the recog- nition they brought to Western.

But these students were not ordinary campers, and they were not headed for an ordinary weekend camping trip. They were headed for Weekend in the Woods, a college leadership co.- ference held at Camp Decker and sponsored by Associated Student Government. "To realize your potential and be- come an effective leader," was the promise made to students in the bro- chure sent to various organizations, and 45 Weekenders accepted the of- fer. 1 . . . ,,, "It's going to give a person an edge on everyone else," Cave City senior Tim Harper said. Harper, who was the president of University Center Board, had been to other leadership conferences before going to the Week- end for his first time. "It can't be beatf' he said. Weekend in the Woods offered speakers who had many different lead- ership roles on campus. Faculty leaders from Western, such as Anne Murray, assistant to the vice president of student affairs for enroll- ment management, were on the agen- da to lead some of the seminars for the fourth annual Weekend. For the first time, student leaders, such as Tommy johnson, a graduate student from Franklin, and Hilltopper basketball center Clarence Martin, an Alexander City, Ala., senior, spoke at the semi- nars. The various seminar topics not only dealt with leadership, but offered skills for everyday life, such as setting goals, creating ideas and learning how to listen properly. The main components that set the conference apart from others, Harper said, were the small group and the camp setting. These helped to give it a "more relaxed atmosphere." He added, "It was a lot easier to feel like you fit in." Low attendance created a feeling of closeness between the Weekenders. "There was a lot of brotherhood and Sisterhood" among the people who went, Holly Hale, a Franklin freshman, said. Although there were accommoda- tions for up to 75 people, only 45 people attended the conference. "I thought the turnout was going to hurt the conference," Daniel Rodri- guez, a senior from Barquisimeto, Venezuela, said. Rodriguez, the ASG vice president of public relations, said the lower attendance helped the -1 i ,ss , X , wa XS. 4" .an-gf-'w -g-f-'- ' """"' "T X .

After scheduling the event, they promoted Weekend by writing letters to freshmen and placing ads in the College Heights Herald, along with sending the brochures to organiza- tions. Rodriguez said that past Weekend- ers often promote the conference by telling other students about it during the year. Each participant paid ,830 to attend the conference. This covered every- thing, including meals and lodging. During a lecture, ASG treasurer Barbara Rush, a senior from Louisville, takes notes. The speaker was state senator-elect Nick Kafoglis. 'Tve paid more for leadership con- ferences that weren't half as interest- ing," Hale said. When it came time for the Week- enders to pack their bags and head back to campus, the conference still wasn't over. The last speaker sched- uled, Western president Kern Alex- ander, had not been able to make it to the conference. As a result, Alexander invited all of the Weekenders to breakfast at his home a week later. "We had never had it end like that," Rodriguez said. "That was a great way to finish."

Patiently each troop leader lined up her jump- ing, chattering girls for registration. Inside, nervously excited volun- teers, dressed in red shirts and jeans, made last-minute changes and pre- pared for the flood of girls. "The more the merrier," Hopkins- ville senior Charlotte Wil- some guidance, but it was pretty much theirs." "The Recreation Club is known for doing things," Bruce West, a Madis- onville senior and community service chairperson for the Recreation Majors Club, said. Hunton, a Western graduate, felt Brownie Play Day benefitted the re- creation majors. "It gives them practi- cal experience in budgeting money, doing paper work, scheduling and ac- "It was the first time I've ever done anything like that," West said. "The volunteers were great. They're the ones who pulled it off." Through Brownie Play Day, the Recreation Majors Club gave its membes a chance for practical, out-of. class experience. Steve Blazina, a Louisville senior, said, "I want to be a camp director and that gave me exposure to what it's like to work with kids. In recreation they teach us to be recreation lead- liams said. "I love it." As the doors opened, 6- 7, and 8-year-old girls in crooked, single-file lines streamed into the building. The Recreation Majors Club organized the Saturday event and recruited more than 60 students and residence hall directors to lead the activities. Brownie Play Day consisted of nine events: crafts, cheerleading, bowling, dancing, bingo, sports extravaganza, new games, nature bracelets and gym- nastics. The sessions were set up for 90 girls and each Brownie could choose five activities. Diane I-Iunton, recruitment direc- tor for Caveland services of the Ken- tuckiana Girl Scouts Council, present- ed the idea to the Recreation Majors Club. "They met and came back and told me how they thought they could fa- cilitate it," I-Iunton said. "They had "I haven't done anything like before, but I'l1 do it again." -Tim Stockton tually doing it," she said. Although anyone could volunteer to help with the events, most of the leaders were recreation majors. "It provides me the opportunity for leadership and a chance to demon- strate things I've learned in class," Williams said. Vickie Stinnett, a Bowling Green junior, was one of four dance instruc- tors. "It helps me to deal with the kids and the community and to learn how to fulfill their needs and interestsf' she said. Michelle Webb, a Bedford senior, Lourrae Ewbank, a Georgetown ju- nior, and West were co-chairpersons for Brownie Play Day. this ers and that gave me the op- portunity to be one." Several of the volunteers had never participated in an event like Brownie Play Day. "This helps me with people skills and it furthers my career exper- ience," Cave City sophomore Tim Stockton said. "I haven't done any- thing like this before, but I'll do it again." As the day ended, tired Brownies piled into the cars headed for home. They never realized the planning and work that went into their play day. "It made up my mind that recrea- tion is what I want to do," said West. "I loved it and all the pressures that went along with it. I lost a lot of sleep, but it was worth it."

Over 850 girls participated in the play day. 1 05 Brownies Technically peakin he industrial technology organizations were among many clubs on campus that gained ex- posure from various activities These groups were related in the industry of engineering and focused on learning experiences as well as social gatherings. A club aimed at promoting profes- sional engineering was the AMERI- CAN SOCIETY OF ME- CHANICAL ENGINEERS. The group's goal was "to supply infor- mation on different job opportunities in mechanical engineering," said orga- nization president Chris Brink, a St. Charles, Mo., senior. "It's a technical-oriented club," Brink said. "It's more involved with an engineer's opportunities - what he looks for after he graduates." The organization made several field trips. They traveled to Avco Aero Structures in Nashville, where they observed techniques for making large airplane wings. The group vis- ited the Detrex Corporation in Bowl- ing Green and watched the making of industrial cleaning equipment for computer tip boards and vapor phase equipment. Club members also visited an air force testing facility at the University of Tennessee. "We took a guide to the test cham- bers and watched the testing of jet engines," Brink said. "We also took a tour over to the power plant." Another club that was directed to- ward informing students about the in- dustrial technology field and its op- portunities was the ASSOCI- ATION FOR COMPUTING MACHINERY. The club was open to anyone inter- ested in computer science, but it typi- cally appealed to computer science ma- jors and minors. The group's membership, according to ACM's ad- viser John Crenshaw, was stable with about 60 to 70 members. "The organization is a student group and is part of a national group that helps students find out about computer science." Crenshaw said. As another activity, the club brought in guest speakers. The orga- nization also held a party each semes- ter. The CIVIL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY CLUB was ba- sically used for getting civil engineer- ing people together outside the class- room. Members of the group took one field trip out to a construction site where participants could talk to peo- ple in the field, Gregory Mills, the organization's adviser, said. Upperclassmen in the club offered tutoring to others who felt they need- ed help with civil engineering classes. An organization that acted as a professional society for electrical and electronic students was the INSTI- TUTE OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGI- NEERS. The club offered technical lectures and field trips for its mem- bers. It was open primarily to electrical or electronic engineer majors or people in the pre-engineering program. "We try to promote membership and try to get people to join because it,s a national organization," said Gary Crowell, an Owensboro senior and sec- retary of the organization. According to the institute's adviser, John Carr, the club's short-term goal for the school year was to increase student involvement in the organiza- tion. A significant change in the organi- zation, Carr said, was the increased membership for the year. In an effort to reorganize their club, members of the INDUSTRI- AL EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY CLUB had planned to join other groups in the industry and technology field in trips and to sponsor guest speakers, Mark Eckler, a club member, said. "With all the clubs that are closely related, we try to get all of the presi- dents to keep up to date on what the clubs were doing so all the groups could benefit," Eckler, a Taylorsville senior, said. "The groups try to get together like a board to let everyone know what was going on," he added. Eckler said that the organization would bring in speakers to talk' about the advancements made in the tech- nology area.

Lee was working on an assign- ment for his circuits design class which was required for his electrical engineering technol- ogy major. since most of the group's members were seniors. An organization that promoted the understanding of manufaturing engi- neering was the SOCIETY OF MANUFACTURING ENGI- NEERS. To be in the club, a student had to be majoring or minoring in an area of the department. The organization's short-term goal was to become a program with the senior chapter, Skip Alcorn, president of the club, said. Alcorn said that the group's major accomplishments were developing a 8150 scholarship fund and purchasing materials to help in promoting the department. In distinguishing the group from other industrial technology organiza- tions, Alcorn said that the club had international connections. All of the industrial technology clubs managed to offer learning exper- iences to their members, along with obtaining a wide range of exposure in the field members planned to enter after their college careers.

The DISTRIBUTIVE EDU- CATION CLUBS OF AMER- ICA CDECAQ reached out to more people through assisting and training high school and secondary teachers. The group also hosted many activi- ties that incorporated job work skills for high school students. This gave the students the opportunity to com- pete with one another and to test their knowledge about different business fields, adviser Dr. Jerry Boles said. "About 1,000 high school students attended the Leadership Develop- ment program that we hold here at Western," Boles said. "The group conducted individual classes, like job interviews and responsibilities as an officer in DECAX' Along with holding seminars on campus, the organization also assisted 50 high schools in implementing pro- grams in business and marketing. "The group had contact with 1, 300 high school students last year," Boles said. A serious side of education was demonstrated by the education honor society, KAPPA DELTA PI. In order to join, prospective mem- bers had to be education majors or minors and have a 3.0 grade point average. "The group is not very active this year because of everyone's hectic schedules," adviser Virginia Mutchler said. The honor society was not active in service because the members were out teaching, she added. Teaching wasn't the only activity of the STUDENT PROGRAM OF NATIONAL EDUCA- TION ASSOCIATION. Its members projected teaching methods and went a step further. "The NEA informs prospective teachers of the profession," adviser Dr. Robert Otto said, "including ac- tivities other than teaching." The organization looked at differ- ent aspects apart from education itself. The group studied "politics in the school system, how to deal with those actions and school law," Otto said. The organization also had a na- tional officer elected during the NEA convention. Rosemary Irwin, a senior from Ri- chardsville, went to the convention as a student delegate and was elected to the nationwide Higher Education Committee of the educational group, Otto said. "This group is one of the largest organizations in the country," Irwin said. "They work for the betterment of teachers and educators alike. "The group is working for better quality education through the im- provement of a 40-year institution," she said. The organization also concentrated on a cookbook project. The book had been published for about I5 years as a fund-raiser and was sold in the College Heights Bookstore, Otto said. Along with carrying the knowledge of the world, a teacher had to exhibit much more. In an effort to further involvement in physical activity on campus, the PHYSICAL EDUCATION MAJORS CLUB launched their Exercise For Heart program on April 1. "This is the first time that we are doing this, and we're hoping that stu- dents come out and participate and increase awareness of what exercise can do for them," said Tammy Nelson, a junior from Owensboro and vice presi- dent of the group. The PE majors demonstrated var- ious activities which could improve cardiovascular fitness. Among these were running, dancing, swimming, jumping rope and basketball. The Exercise for Heart program was in conjunction with raising funds for the American Heart Association. Student members who participated in the activities were sponsored for three hours of continuous exercise. Knowing how to teach the game was just as important as being able to play it. The PE majors also participat- ed in teaching activities at local schools. Members of the RECREA- TION MAJORS ,CLUB learned to supervise activities that would keep them updated in their area. The club tried to improve recreation standards by mixing learning from the classroom with the planning of campus activities for other groups, such as the Brown- ies. One organization, the STU- D EN T NATIONAL SPEECH, LANGUAGE AND HEARING ASSOCIATION, also offered help on campus. Howev- er, it reached out to the Bowling On the south lawn of DUC, Ami Shaw, a sophomore from Ocean springs, Miss., paints the face of Mandy Stuart of Russellville.

The group brought together those interested in speech and communica- tion disorders to exchange ideas about ways to help Bowling Green residents with speech and language problems, said Mia Koerner, a Franklin junior and the club's president. "There were many things we were involved in, like teachers' screening," Koerner said. "If anyone has prob- lems, we have the facilities to correct them." The program was designed to do more than screen the education ma- jors. It also worked with the Head Start children on campus and helped run clinics for anyone with speech, language or hearing problems, she said. Many different areas must be cov- ered in the educational system today to meet the needs of the changing world of the '8os. Through the educa- as - i 1 tion organizations, the world's future teachers learned skills valuable for the betterment of tomorrow's children.

Great achieve- ment were made by students in the areas of advertising, journalism, pho- tojournalism and public relations. Members of the ADVERTIS- ING CLUB operated their club like a professional advertising organiza- tion. This strategy worked well. The club resembled an agency when it was hired by the Lady Top- pers basketball team to promote two of the women's games. Flyers, door hang- ers, table tents, and newspaper ads were among the promotions designed by the group. I The club also placed first in two categories and second in one at the National Student Chapter Achieve- ment Competition in Chicago in June 1986. The event involved more than 150 student chapters competing in several different areas.

This year also saw a significant membership and activity increase as the group prepared to enter more competitions, including another chap- ter competition and the National Stu- dent Advertising Competition. The latter involved the planning of a cam- paign, with members divided up into three teams - research, media and cre- ative. The program strived to promote professionalism in students. Competi- tion was one way the group tried to do this, but not the only way. Speakers were often featured to expose students to professional practitioners. Also pro- vided was the opportunity to socialize with other students of similar interests and goals. KAPPA TAU ALPHA was the only honorary society in the jour- nalism department. Members were ex- pected to maintain high standards of academic excellence. At least 60 semes- ter hours had to be accumulated, and a 3.5 or better grade point average was mandatory. Kappa Tau Alpha spent most of its time working on a committee in con- junction with department faculty and members of other journalism organi- zations. The purpose was to increase chances that the journalism depart- ment would be named as a state Cen- ter of Excellence. The students wrote letters to members on the selection committee of the centers. Eight cen- ters were to be named in Kentucky universities in various academic de- partments. "If we are named a center, the de- partment will get more money," said Lawrenceburg senior Sandra Smith, KTA president. Inductees were reminded at initi- ation of the keys to professional jour- nalism with the acronym of Kappa Tau Alpha QKTAJ: knowledge, truth and accuracy. The NATIONAL PRESS PHOTOGRAPHERS ASSO- CIATION QNPPAJ allowed photojournalism majors an extension of their educational process. It was a professional as well as a social group. NPPA sponsored a variety of speakers of interest to majors and others. Dan Dry, 1981 Newspaper Photographer of the Year, was one guest. NPPA also underwent a change this year. They elected their first fe- male president, Kathy Forrester, a Bowling Green senior. Forrester said the group wanted to have an even better variety of speak- ers. One goal was to get a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist to visit. "I wish our department had more pull to get the big-name pros in," For- rester said. "We would also like more people who specialize, like in sports or fashion." Other intentions of NPPA were to keep membership going and growing as well. "We are going to be aiming at more recruitment," Forrester said. The SOCIETY OF PRO- FESSIONAL JOURNAL- ISTS, SIGMA DELTA CHI, CSDXJ, enjoyed another successful year. The group was named Out- standing Campus Chapter, Region Five, for the 12th consecutive year. Included in the region were Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. In addition, Mayfield senior Mack Humphreys was named district repre- sentative over II states. 'Tm on the national board of direc- tors, "Humphreys said. "I work with other SDX chapters to see that they,re up to their requirements." Success didn't slow SDX down, however. Several activities were spon- sored throughout the year, including a legal seminar held in the fall. One featured speaker was Martin County newspaper editor Homer Marcum, who was the most-sued editor in the state. In addition, Courier-journal staff attorney Jon Fleischaker spoke. Free press issues were among the things discussed. The group also held a journalism contest for aspiring high school jour- nalists. Stories were judged, and awards were given to those students with the best works. The PUBLIC RELATIONS STUDENT SOCIETY OF AMERICA CPRSSAQ, which was associated with the professional Public Relations Society of America, offered members a vast number of op- portunities as it exposed students to professional experience. "We promote hands-on experience while in school," Louisville junior Cliff Whalin said. "The experience is helpful to students for when they gra- duate." Accomplishments included the start of Kentucky Consultants. "It is a professional PR agency run by stu- dents," Whalin said, "and is a subsi- dary of PRSSA."

Employees of Kentucky Consul- tants were members of PRSSA. The business established three accounts last year, including two with Navistar Corporation and one with a campus office. Some members attended a national conference in Washington, D.C., in the fall. The group also attended dis- trict conferences. These provided chances for students to make contacts with public relations practitioners. An awards banquet was hosted in the spring to honor graduates and out- standing members. In affiliation with the National As- sociation of Black Journalists, the cam- pus chapter, WESTERN KEN- TUCKY MINORITY COM- MUNICATORS, functioned to spread the awareness that blacks and minorities were capable of working in journalism. Membership was open to all. How- ever, there were full members and as- sociate members. On a production night, Graphic Editor Mike Gohee, a Calvert City junior, and Opin- ion Page Editor jackie Hutcherson, a Paducah junior, lay out an opinion page.

ASSOCIATED STUDENT GOVERNMENT CASGJ dem- onstrated this new degree of involve- ment with two main projects: an in- crease in lighting on campus and a new "student hangout" in Downing University Center. These projects branched from one concern expressed by President Kern Alexander at a breakfast with ASG members in September. "He expressed student retention," which meant making the student feel more at home, ASG President Tim Todd, a Dawson Springs junior, said. Todd said that keeping the stu- dents around campus then became ASG's biggest concern. Because of student concern about crime on campus, ASG pushed for more lighting to make the campus a safer home. They managed to get the administration to give 510,000 for new lights. To keep the students from going home on weekends, ASG planned to establish a hangout at the university center where students could dance and have fun without leaving campus. Members formed committees, and each had its own area of expertise. Responsibilities included arranging the music and organizing the lights for dancing. "We view ourselves as the link be- tween the students and administra- tion," Todd said. ASG was not the only organization concerned with getting the student body involved. UNIVERSITY CENTER BOARD CUCBQ attempted to get the students involved by sponsoring several major projects. "Our main concern is the entertain- ment of students at Western through various events," Leanne Banna, a Henderson junior and the vice chair- person, said. UCB planned annual events like Big Red's Roar and Hilloween, along with special shows like comedian Alex Cole and concerts from Nervous Mel- vin and the Mistakes and The Fabu- IT MASTERS. This group of students worked as Western's own public relations com- mittee. "We're a helping hand for students and visitors," Spirit Master Chairman Gene Crume, an Owensboro junior, said. To be one of the zz Spirit Masters, a student had to go through inter- views at the end of the spring semes- ter. The Spirit Masters' jobs included conducting tours of the campus for individuals and for groups of high school seniors. Along with those duties, the Spirit Masters hosted hospitality rooms and did much of the work for the inaugu- ration of the new university president, Dr. Kern Alexander. Another group of students which worked with the president was the newly-formed STUDENT ALUMNI. It was established in the fall, mainly "to strengthen the rela- tionship between the students and the alumni," Student Alumni President Mitchell McKinney, a Drakesboro ju- nior, said. lous Thunderbirds. "We were able to increase our membership and our events drew larg- er crowds," Banna said. Student support also showed im- provement in the INTER-HALL COUNCIL CIHCJ. "We had across-the-board support from all the hall officers," IHC Presi- dent Dell Robertson, a Morganfield senior, said. With the help of 60 hall officers, IHC met the students' needs with new copy and change machines in the resi- dence halls. IHC also sponsored Parents' Weekend and Vegas Night. The group set its sights on trying new pro- jects, such as cable television in the residence halls, a new laundry system and improved open house policies. The organization had already be- gun to study the possibility of extend- ing open house hours for all residence halls. "Once we have the poll taken, we will know which way we will go," Rob- ertson said.

McKinney said that he hoped his Jrganization, which worked out of the Office of Alumni Affairs, could "de- velop responsibility in the students to the university" so they would be sup- portive after they graduate. This objective proved successful as the group's membership surged to 35 after starting with I3 members. "I have been very pleased with how the group has operated," McKinney said. The organization planned to help graduating seniors by giving them in- formation and send-off parties. Mem- bers also held receptions and a ban- quet for the alumni around homecoming and Christmas. Instead of contacting alumni who were already in Bowling Green, one committee reached out to get alumni support. The PHONOTHON COM- MITTEE was formed by the adminis- tration to phone alumni and ask for contributions for the university. The student participation grew substantial- ly in the six-year history of the Phon- othon, helping to bring the total num- ber of alumni called in one year to?

The committee raised about S55,ooo, which was 317,000 over last year's to- tal, Gilchrist said. The Phonothon was one of the ac- tivities that INTERFRATER- NITY COUNCIL CIFCJ par- ticipated in each year. The group also concentrated on new activities and new goals. "We're developing communication with Panhellenic," IFC President Bill Burns, a Memphis, Tenn., junior, said. IFC joined Panhellenic in sponsor- ing a Christmas party for homeless children from Potter Christian School. Fraternities and sororities bought gifts for each child. Another goal for IFC was to im- prove its image with the fraternities. Burns said that the fraternities looked at IFC too much as a governing body. ing towards helping the fraternities instead of always putting restrictions on them or telling them what to do. One of PANHELLENIC COUNCIL'smain dutieswasto help greeks, too, but particularly the sorori- ties. "It's getting back so that sororities can rely on Panhellenic now," Louis- ville junior Ann Mary Kiesler, presi- dent of Panhellenic, said. Panhellenic had a leadership con- ference for the sororities, in addition to a special reception held to encour- age black sororities to get more in- volved. It also helped Sigma Kappa, a sorority that went through re-coloni- zation, get off to a good start. Members also encouraged sororities to share more with one another. They put sororities in pairs and formed sis- ter sororities so that the groups would help each other and plan activities to- gether. Because of these activities, "We have increased interest in Panhellen- icf' Kiesler said.

"This year we had more American members," ISO President Naheed Shafi, a Bowling Green junior, said. The go-member organization not only planned events for itself, like a trip to Mammoth Cave, but also had a unique way of raising funds. The group joined with the United Campuses to Prevent Nuclear War in sponsoring a "Feast or Famine" din- ner to raise money for UNICEF. To go to the dinner, a person paid S2 for a ticket. Upon arrival, he would pick a ticket that said either "feast" or "famine" If it said "feast,', then the person would have a full meal, but if it said "famine" he would have to sit through the meal without eating. The UNITED BLACK STU- DENTS also had service projects. The group sold candy, held car washes and helped tutor at Parker Bennett School, President Marchale Graves, a junior from Nicholasville, said. Graves added that her organization was trying to become more active. The YOUNG DEMO- CRATS was one group that kept active all year. "Active participation is way up," President Bill Fogle, an Evansville, Ind., graduate student, said. That participation showed. In the fall, the Young Democrats helped with Sen. Wendell Ford's campaign for re-election to the U.S. Senate. In the spring they got involved in the Democratic gubernatorial primar- ies. On top of this activity, the organi- zation, which was reformed during the '86 school year, was officially char- tered and won top chapter in the state of Kentucky. The WKU COLLEGE RE- PUBLICANS, however, were not quite as active. "We're just building," President Tim jane, a freshman from Greens- burg, said. Jane added that when the organiza- tion became stronger, he planned on having guest speakers and working on a Republican candidate's campaign for governor. No matter the size, race, creed or political belief, the student govern- mental bodies all managed some de- gree of student activity.

Inform- ing the public of health threats was one way the health organizations worked to control problems of illness in the community. ALPHA EPSILON DEL- TA, the pre-medical honor society, attempted to help its members be "aware of what they're getting into," adviser Richard Ferrell said. Members hoped to gain more experience in their respective areas. The club included pre-optometry, pre-veterinary, pre-dental and pre- medical students under the heading of pre-professional. Members were required to have a 3.2 grade point average overall, a 3.0 GPA in the sciences and 45 hours accumulated within the university. Alpha Epsilon Delta concentrated on an observation program to give members exposure to their field by observing a doctor from an area of interest, Ferrell said. The group also sponsored an annu- al freshman orientation seminar to in- troduce potential pre-medical honor students to Alpha Epsilon Delta. Rather than signing students up for classes, the sole purpose of the orienta- tion was to introduce students to the organization. Service projects kept the AMERICAN DENTAL HY- GIENISTS busy. During Chil- dren's Dental Health Month in Feb- ruary, the group visited community grade schools, giving students lessons on the proper dental health care, Lynn Donnelly, a Bowling Green gra- duate student, said. "You have to be a practicing dental hygienist or a student studying in the field before you can join," Donnelly said. The group's primary goal was to reach the public sector when promot- ing dental helath. Club members worked toward their goal by helping to administer oral cancer screenings at nursing homes, Donnelly said. "It's a professional organization," she said. "It keeps you up to date on your profession." The national professional honorary society of health services was ETA SIGMA GAMMA. To be a mem- ber, students had to have a 2.7 GPA the semester prior to induction and a 2.5 overall. Since its beginning in 1967, the main objective for the group had been to further the professional compe- tence and dedication of members in the health science profession. Last fall the group sponsored a booth at Downing University Center for the Great American Smoke-Out. Members handed out stickers, kits and information pamphlets on the health threats of smoking to help partici- pants kick the habit for a day. The kit contained a rubber band, chewing gum and a book of matches, Bowling Green senior Doug Ford said. The rubber band was to be worn so the smoker could pop himself on the wrist when he wanted to smoke. The matches would not light, and this was supposed to make the smokers stop and think a minute before lighting up, Ford said.p By adding heat, Bowling Green senior Nan- cy Lowry and Owensboro sophomore Darren jacob control bacteria populations.

Students passing by the booth could adopt a smoker for a day. They would help that person meet his goal to not smoke, Ford said. "To promote maintenance and im- provement for protection of the health and welfare of all Kentuckiansn was what many of the activities of the KENTUCKY PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION CKPHAJ aimed toward, President Darrell Miller, a Summer Shade sen- ior, said. Members of the group learned leadership skills through programs like a personal direction seminar and a statewide community health confer- ence. The chapter also sponsored a stu- dent and community health confer- ence. "Because of the growing num- ber, we're getting a panel of people who were pregnant teenagers for our conference," Miller said. "We've had trouble getting off the groundf, Miller said, "but people are beginning to recognize what we are and who we are. Being in KPHA has made me take pride in what I want to achieve." Fund raising was one activity at which the MEDICAL RE- CORDS CLUB proved themselves successful. The Phonothon program helped raise money to purchase co- muters for the department. A student had to be pursuing an associate degree in medial records technology to be a member. "It's a benefit to the students," said Jill Cash, an Albany sophomore and the club's secretary. "It familiarizes them with the field." One advantage of becoming a member was the discounted rates avail- able when one joined the American Medical Records Club. For the past three years, the NURSING HONOR SOCI- ETY has been working toward being accepted as an affiliation to the na- tional nursing honor society of Sigma Theta Tau. The chapter was formed in 1980. "QItj looks like this will' be the year" to get chartered, adviser Donna Blackburn said. The society was established by the national society to promote scholar- ship and leadership in the field of nursing. A nursing student had to have a 3.0 GPA to be in the organiza- tion. During the spring semester the group organized a workshop for the students and community. Nurses pre- sented research and discussed changes in the medical industry, Blackburn said. "Organizing activities that pro- mote fellowship among the members and enhance students' chances to be accepted to medical technology school" was the main goal of the AS- SOCIATION OF MEDICAL TECHNOLOGISTS, Lindsey Miller, an Elizabethtown senior, said. All biology majors were invited to join the organization. "We send out letters and post fly- ers telling biology majors about the major pizza party we have to increase membership," Miller said. This year the group tried a new way of fund raising. "We ordered stuffed animals and sold them in the dorms and the Academic Complex be- fore Valentines Day," Miller said. "Membership was down," but the group was optimistic about the future, she said. With the nationwide trend toward being healthy, the health organiza- tions became an even more important part of the community.

During homecoming ceremonies the men and women of SCAB- BARD AND BLADE provided the saber arch for the parading queen. The organization also contributed more to Western and the community. They helped coordinate the Special Olympics and took part individually as buddies to the participants, a major tradition of the organization. To be a member of Scabbard and Blade was an honor. To become eligi- ble for membership, a potential candi- date had to be a second-semester soph- omore with a 3.0 grade point average in military science and a 2.5 cumula- tive GPA. According to K.D. Neal, a senior from Monroe, N.C., grades were not always enough. "You have to have potential for leadership and be dedicated," Neal said. New members were introduced to the organization through a six-week pledging process. The pledges were instructed in the history of the mili- tary aspects of Scabbard and Blade, the United States and Western Ken- tucky University. The Red Knights Society began marching to the beat of a new cadence. They also had a new name-the SO- CIETY OF PERSHING RI- FLES CPRQ, although the only ma- jor difference in the group was Pershing Rifles' affiliation as a nation- al organization. Pershing Rifles' Chapter B-7 was reinstated after the Red Knight Society was disbanded. The organization provided the col- or guard at home basketball games. Before participating, members went through a candidate phase where they were tested on drilling skills and on overall positive attitude. Pershing Rifles also established a six-week pledge period to train its ca- dets in drill and ceremony and the history of the organization. The group was open to all armed forces cadets. Although cadets were not required to be contracted with one of the armed forces, enrollment in the military science program and a 2.0 cu- mulative GPA was necessary. The organization planned to par- ticipate in local and national competi- tions. "We're off to a good start with support from PR alumni and other PR units at universities in the area," Mi- chael Horn, a Booneville, Ind., fresh- man, said. SPECIAL FORCES empha- sized advanced infantry training, and its members received realistic prepara- tion for entering the military. Even though military survival and training were stressed, the members did not have to be affiliated with the ROTC program. Field-training exercises were con- ducted for members. These included helicopter operation, ambush tech- niques and survival classes. Members also repelled from helicopters and from the parking structure. During the candidate program, Special Forces' newly-recruited mem- bers ran and exercised in the mornings and evenings. After training, candidates were in- iated into the organization and par- ticipated in twice-weekly exercise ses- sions with the regular members. Special Forces provided many ser- vices on campus including ushering at ball games, recruiting for ROTC and helping students in marksmanship and mountaineering classes. They also worked with the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in the community. A ball was sponsored by the mili- tary department and its organizations in the spring. This provided an oppor- tunity for all organizations and mili- tary personnel to come together and meet on common ground.

It was also more than playing the traditional role of a homemaker. Today's home economics students were career-oriented and professional in approach. The individual organiza- tions under the home economics pro- gram contributed to the professional growth of their students. PHI UPSILON OMI- CRON, the home economics honor society, recognized the stigma that they faced. "There is a definite image problem with the home economics studies," Dr. Martha jenkins, the group's ad- viser, said. "But it exists outside of the With a Big Red quilt behind her, Melinda Tipton, a Pikeville junior, tries to keep her hands warm.

I 26 Organizatimu program with students who are not familiar with what we have to offer." jenkins suggested that building awareness of the available career op- portunities in home economics would help combat the stereotype. To evaluate their situation further, Phi Upsilon Omicron conducted re- search on what attracted majors into their programs. "We can then use the information as a guide to recruiting more stu- dents," Jenkins said. "The 18- to 24- year-old population is declining and we, like any other program, want to ensure a strengthened growth of our program." The group's greatest step toward meeting this objective was receiving the district award for promoting -Scott Wxlveman awareness of career opportunities to a number of high school students in the region. The group's president, junior Tra- cy Richards of Dundee, said they had a good year with their programs. They had a Cookie Run on Valentines Day for the offices on campus and sold cookie-grams on Sweetest Day. "We also sold Little Reds, our ver- sion of the Big Red. That's always a good fund-raiser for us," Richards said. Phi Upsilon Cmicron also spon- sored a communications workshop for student chapters from the surround- ing states. The workshop featured oral and writing skills, in addition to a panel of speakers on career opportuni- UCS. Knowing what was in fashion and getting the best buy was what mem- bers of FASHION INC. learned at the New Apparel Mart in Atlanta. Textile clothing merchandise stu- dents talked to manufacturers' repre- sentives of bridal gowns, furs and fash- ion accessories and learned about the buying end of the business. "There were about 700 booths there, and we toured three of the showrooms. We also talked to the re- presentatives about the different types of jobs available in fashion retail," Ste- ven Brinkley, a Bowling Green junior, said. Sallie Overstreet, an Owensboro ju- nior and vice president of the group, described the trip as a good learning experience. It also provided a chance i l 5 F for students to build professional con- tacts, she said. For the members of the AMERI- CAN SOCIETY OF INTERI- OR DESIGNERS STUDENT CHAPTER, there was nothing like the feeling of seeing their own work displayed. Members got that chance when they hung their work on the fourth floor of the Academic Com- plex. The students designed and deco- rated the level as part of a group pro- ject. It was started by several students who were tired of the bare concrete walls that housed their department, and they felt that it did not reflect their ability as interior designers. "It looked more like a hospital, and so they approached their adviser and dean to bring it more to life," said Sue Ballard, a Loretto senior and the group's president. "So far, we've only had positive comments about it." To finance their project, the group sold club T-shirts and managed to raise several hundred dollars. "We also had funds from our previous fund-raisers over the years, and now we're getting some help from the physical plant," Ballard said. "We're now working on getting our program accredited. We are hav- ing a reception for alumni of our pro- gram and some professionals of the field in April, and they will be our advisory board on getting accredited," she said. Another group of the home economics program was the HOME ECONOMICS ASSOCIA- TION, which catered to majors and minors in that particular program. This professional-oriented club provided demonstrations, programs and information on current topics in home economics and related fields for its members. "We're now working on ideas for fund-raisers to get us to the national meeting in Indianapolis," said Sue Mattingly, a junior from Glasgow and president of the club. The group also sent members to a state meeting of the Future Home- makers of America QFI-IAQ in Owens- boro during the month of April. The FHA was the high school home eco- nomics chapter. The other fund-raiser the club had was selling little wooden Big Reds for Christmas ornaments. "We had one of our members make it, and we did the painting. It was sold at the Bowl- ing Green Municipal Utilities Holi- day I-louse," Mattingly said. They made about 8250. In February the faculty and stu- dents judged activities for the FHA competition on campus, including a creative creed writing contest. They also tested students on food, nutrition and parliamentary procedures. Many had a wrong idea as to who the INSTITUTIONAL AD- MINISTRATION SOCIETY QIASJ served. "We have to change the name sometime because of the confusion. We're really a society for hotel-restaurant management and di- etician majors," said jennifer Sapp, the group's vice president. "We deal with diet and meal plan- ning and managing aspects of an insti- tution, but we're not a bunch of little maids running around cooking," the Campbellsville senior said. "Right now our main project is to paint a design on the walls of our department to better illustrate our ma- jor," she said. "It's our imprint on Western after these four years." Another project that benefitted IAS members was a regular newsletter to keep alumni of the program updat- ed on the department's events. It was sent to restaurant associations to gain exposure for the program. Sapp explained that the newsletter served to open channels to get jobs and possibly donations for their club. The IAS also had a plant sale and also raffled off a homemade quilt at the football game. "It wasn't a tremen- dous amount but it was worth doing. It was kind of fun and we met a lot of people," Sapp said. Sapp also expressed her enthusiasm and support for Western's plan of building a hotel and golf course on the university farm. "It's going to draw a whole lot more people to campus. Besides, it's not only for our major," she said, add- ing that apart from providing more jobs for students, the complex would be there for them to use. These organizations of the home economics program have shown that they are out to change the misconcep- tions about home economics. Their professional attitude and activities were winning positive comments, an indication of their successful strive in that direction. I -Story by KK.

Honor societies provided ave- nues for this recognition as well as opportunities for socialization. Bringing together more students interested in sociology was the goal of ALPHA KAPPA DELTA CAKDJ , a sociology honors organiza- tion. "Our major purpose is to promote scholarship and scholarly research in the social sciences," President Tim Fowlkes, a Bowling Green senior, said. "A lot of research is supported through AKD." Membership in AKD saw a sharp increase during the year with a dou- bling of the number active in the orga- nization. "Three years ago when AKD was formed at Western, we had five mem- bers," Fowlkes said. "By the end of this spring we should have about go." A tutoring service for black fresh- men was one of the many services and activities of the BLACK SCHO- LASTIC ACHIEVERS. Members offered to tutor any black freshman whose grade point average dropped below a 2.0, vice president Tyron Graves, a Tompkinsville ju- nior, said. A 3.o GPA and involvement in outside activities were required for membership. "Our club recognizes black individ- uals who have succeeded academical- ly," Graves said. Black History Month gave Black Scholastic Achievers another opportu- nity to represent their organization. The group sponsored a Trivial Pur- suit game for different black organiza- tions. "We're getting more involved in different activities," Graves said. "You feel honored to be a part fof our clubj because there is a high stan- dard," he added. Leadership was the focus of OMI- CRON DELTA KAPPA CODKJ, a national honorary leader- ship fraternity. "ODK is for people who are on top of everything else and are campus leaders," adviser Sally Koenig said. The goals of the group applied not only to its own members but also to others outside the group. "The long-term goal fof ODKJ would be to encourage scholarship and leadership in others," Koenig said. "If we had more money weid like to spon- sor a symposium and workshop on leadership." Promoting history on campus was the main function, but not the only one, for PHI ALPHA THETA, a history honor society. "We take history very seriously, but we also have fun," said vice presi- dent Robert Cull, an Ithaca, N.Y., senior. The group encouraged interest in history by presentations on relevant topics. "We try to have monthly presenta- tions on some kind of history project," Richard Salisbury, Phi Alpha Theta adviser, said. Studying history was not the only function of the group, however. It also offered recreational and social oppor- tunities for its members, such as the annual softball game between students and faculty. "Being a history minor, you see some of the same people in your classes," Cull said, "and this is a good way of bringing them together." A change of advisers and the initi- ation of new members marked the year for PHI ETA SIGMA, a fresh- man honor society. Dr. Jodie Pennington took over the adviser's chair after the retirement of Dr. jack Sagabiel, who became the national grand president of Phi Eta Sigma. The organization recognized stu- dents who achieved a 3.5 GPA or bet- ter in at least one semester of their freshman year. "Phi Eta Sigma's purpose is to pro- mote, encourage and reward high scholastic achievement among fresh- men in higher education," Penning- ton said. "We encourage as many people as possible to join," he added. The math honor society, PI MU EPSILON, gave math majors and minors recognition and opportunities to acquire knowledge about more jobs in the field of mathematics. "We have speakers come in and talk about careers in mathematics," said Corlis Finley, a Bowling Green senior and Pi Mu Epsilon member. "We get to associate with real mathematicians," she added. The club also offered several social activities. "We have an annual banquet every spring," Finley said, "and we have a Christmas party with the computer club fAssociation for Computing Ma- chineryj and S.P.S. fSociety of Phys- ics Studentsjf' Involvement was a good beginning in a math-related career for many stu- dents. "It's one of the first real steps in professional mathematics while you're still in school," Finley said. A demonstration of hypnotism was just one activity of PSI CHI, a psy- chology honor society. Psi Chi's monthly meetings consist- ed of such speakers, each covering a different topic in psychology.

"You have an opportunity to come together with people of similar inter- ests in psychology," Harris said. "Iris one way to have recognition for out- standing performance." Outstanding students in English and literature were recognized in SIGMA TAU DELTA CSTDJ , an honorary fraternity for English majors with at least a 3.0 GPA. A lecture series by English depart- ment faculty and outside speakers and a trip to Oxford, Miss., to the home of William Faulkner, highlighted the year for STD. "We get to know some members of the faculty when they come in to speak," Russellville junior Tammy Oberhausen, a club member, said. STD hoped to increase its involve- ment on campus by maintaining and expanding membership during the In deep concentration, Glasgow freshman Toni Dyer clutches her book and listens intent- ly to her instructor in the honors philosophy class. She was in the University Scholars Pro- gram. year. Twenty freshmen, all on scholar- ship, formed the first group of the UNIVERSITY SCHOLARS PROGRAM. The participants, with a minimum 3.5 high school GPA and 26 or higher score on the American College Test QACTQ , were to take one class togeth- er a semester for all four years. "There have been honors courses before, but this is the first honors class," Belfry freshman jeff Shannon, a participant, said. Academically, the students bene- fitted from classes on such topics as utopias, in which class discussion was encouraged. "It really teaches us to express our opinions," Shannon said. The program also offered other ad- vantages. "The social part is that it's a group of people always together," Shannon said. "It brings so many people to- getherf' Bringing people together was a common bond, both academically and socially, for all of the honor societies during the year.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA, the honorary theater fraternity, provided the chance for members to work to- gether for the benefit of the theater department. Members were required to have a 3.0 grade point average over- all and a 3.2 in theater and were ex- pected to be active within the depart- ment. "Our main objective this year has been the rebuilding of our fraternity," Henderson junior Jayne Cravens said. "We had been lacking in membership and activities." The group reached its objective by mid-year when it acquired more mem- bers and initiated more activities than any campus chapter had in some time, Cravens said. Another special quality of Alpha Psi Omega, according to Anchorage senior Michelle Ball, was the fact that it worked strictly for the theater de- partment - a family of sorts. Gospel singers found they had a place in the AMAZING TONES OF JOY. These students comple- mented their academics with the sing- ing of gospel music. The only require- ments for membership were interest and dedication. "We are unique," Lexington senior Monica johnson said, "in that we serve the Lord and uplift Christ's name with our voices." Fund raising for new choir gowns and a trip to Birmingham, Ala., for the Baptist Student Union National Retreat in March were important goals for the group. The retreat would offer members the chance to meet stu- dents of similar interests from univer- l I w ffm ,, 14" -- Tim Broekema Amazing Tones of joy Sigma Delta Pi , I I. Q i . i 7' 4 ' 1 .

Also scheduled was the group's an- niversary concert. The concert was held each spring at an area church. The club for students wishing to broaden their exposure of the art field was the ART GUILD. It was open only to students enrolled in art classes. The organization allowed students to focus on both professional and so- cial aspects of art. Because of the fine reputation of the guild, some members were asked to assist area elementary school teachers in instructing art classes. Some members of the group trav- eled to the Chicago Art Institute in November. Further travel outside the area was planned to enable students to see prestigious exhibitions, adviser Walter Stomps said. One planned trip was to the Na- tional Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., where featured works included the Treasures of Topkopi and the Matisse exhibit. When the time came to help out the music department, members of the professional fraternity DELTA OMICRON were ready. They of- fered a wide range of services to the department, including providing ush- ers at the Faculty Concert Series, co- ordinating fund-raisers and helping to organize music programs on campus. "We also hold a recital in the fall and spring where different members sing solo," Oakland freshman Terry Freeman said. The recitals, called Mu- sic House,-were required to keep the fraternity up to national standards. At the Western-Jacksonville game, Becky Brunner, a Louisville freshman, performs with the Spirit Dancers. The group was officially made a campus organization this year. Members were either music majors or minors who had completed at least one semester of music curriculum and maintained a departmental 3.2 GPA and an overall 2.2. A spring formal was planned in association with Phi Mu Alpha, an- other music fraternity. For students excelling in German, honorary society DELTA PHI AL- PHA served as a vehicle for recogni- tion and further enrichment outside the classroom. The organization met once each semester. Since the group was primar- ily a recognition society, a major goal was the induction of new members who had met requirements. In the fall, a guest speaker from the German Embassy in Washington, D.C., lectured. "There was a questionfanswer ses- sion on German-American relations," adviser jim Miller said. "He had also surveyed 300 years of German immi- gration to this country, from Colonial times to now. He lectured on thatf' The KENTUCKY COLLE- GIATE MUSIC EDUCA- TORS NATIONAL CON- FEREN CE, formerly Student Mu- sic Educators, was open to anyone in- terested in music education. The name change resulted from an effort to maintain consistency with the other organizations across the country. The group held several clinics in which students were kept abreast of new technology in the music educa- tion field. Topics covered included the use of computers in teaching music, instrument repair and innovative teaching methods. Members also attended two state conferences. "At conferences, we at- tend workshops and clinics," Scotts- ville sophomore Gary Graves said. "We do pretty much what we do on the local level, but chapters from across the state are there." Graves was elected state president for 1987-88. He was in charge of the executive committee over all state chapters. 'Tm looking forward to it," he said, "because it will give me an edge on expressing the views of our chap- ter." Professional organization PHI MU ALPHA worked actively with- in the music department as well. "Our main goals are to make things better for the department and to pro- mote music in Americaf' Horse Cave senior Charles Curry said. Members were not required to be music majors or minors. They simply had to be dedicated to Phi Mu Alpha. Throughout the year, members met with department heads to find out what needed to be done. One ac- tivity was fund raising to purchase equipment for the department. They also did odd jobs for retired faculty in the community. The group was more active than it had been in some time. Fall pledgeship was a matter of major importance to members as several were about to gra- duate. "We want to solicit interest so we can get a good pledge class that can take the place of older members when they leave,', Curry said. French majors and minors showing exceptional academic achievement were given recognition by honor soci- ety PI DELTA PHT. Members were required to maintain a 3.0 GPA in French and overall. In addition to recognition, the group sponsored a promotional eventp Russian Club Spirit Dancers "24- .,,x, 14.-li FRONT ROW: Mania Ritter, Kim Schmitt BACK ROW: Kyle McLane, Phillip Womble FRONT ROW: Angela Riedley, Palisa Williams, Michelle Houseal, Hope Northington.

"We had a booth at International Day in Downing University Center," Louisville senior julie Kempf, Pi Delta Phi president, said. "Members sold French food." Money earned was used to buy French films. V While many Americans were watching the television miniseries "Amerika,', which featured a Russian takeover of the United States, mem- bers of the RUSSIAN CLUB were trying to increase students, knowledge of what life in the Soviet Union was really like. "We try to bring an understand- ing, not a hatred, of the Russian peo- ple," adviser Mania Ritter said. "Ha- tred comes through ignorance. We want to wipe out that ignorance." The club was open to any student taking Russian who was genuinely in- Senor Pantalone, played by Hardinsburg senior Scott Belcher, looks skyward to ask why his friend Harlequino, played by Louisville sophomore Scott Carrico, has died. They were in the play "Bamboozled." terested in furthering his knowledge of Soviet life. Students gathered in informal settings for meetings which allowed for a "family-like" atmo- sphere, Ritter said. Members enjoyed a wide variety of activities at meetings. Sometimes they would view Russian films or prepare and eat Russian food. Occasionally, speakers knowledgeable about Soviet life were brought in. "We just do whatever comes up," Ritter said. The group hoped to increase mem- bership by generating more interest in Russia. Ritter stressed again, "We can only gain understanding through knowledge." Another recognition society was SIGMA DELTA PI. It honored Spanish majors and minors who had maintained a 3.0 GPA in the depart- ment and overall. The major activity the group held was initiation. Inductees participated in a ceremonial ritual where they re- peated pledges of dedication to Sigma Delta Pi. One special event included a pre- sentation by Dr. Mark Lowry from the geology and geography depart- ment. Lowry had toured Equador. "He showed us slides and told us about the people who live there," Bowling Green senior Corlis Finley, Sigma Delta Pi president, said. To keep the crowds enthusiastic at Western games, the SPIRIT DANCERS performed to the music of the marching band or songs on tape. They also provided goodwill ser- vices for visiting students and athletes. The group became a university or- ganization for the first time this year. The Spirit Dancers was one of four organizations that made up the Spirit Program, along with Big Red, the band and the cheerleaders. Preparation to perform at the Wendy's Classic, Big Red's Run and the Sun Belt Tournament were key activities of the group. Another ac- complishment was the establishment of a working relationship with Big Red and the band, Bowling Green gra- duate student Palisa Williams said. The WESTERN PLAYERS got off to a fresh start last year with new activities. "We were more active and orga- nized than we had been in quite some time," Nashville senior Ann Street said. Membership in Western Players was open to anyone interested in the- ater. Though primarily a social club, the group was active in helping out with theater productions. They did a lot of the technical work, provided house management and sold refresh- ments at productions. Most of the money earned through selling refreshments went to an out- standing member in the form of a scholarship at the end of the year. One of the new activities was the sponsorship of a family and one wid- ow from Snyder's Christmas tree. In addition, a workshop was held for high school students interested in studying theater at Western. At the end of the year a cabaret was held. "It's kind of a talent show where students perform doing things they might not normally get to do on stage," Street said. "It's also a chance to say good-bye to graduating stu- dents."

Asylum Komix, a comic book published by students, had already died twice. However, its creators wanted to bring their charac- ters back to life. "We're too stubborn fto dieJ," said Eric Lindgren, a Bowling Green sophomore and president of the publi- cation. To help ensure that the publication would not die out again, Asylum's cre- ators worked to form an official club. In October the Campus Cartoonists Association QCCAQ was born as a full- fledged student organization, recog- nized by the university. With this new organization came some great new ideas for Asylumis cre- S WM ators. In the spring, they began work- ing toward the publishing of four na- tionwide comic books. Short segments from the original issues of Asylum Komix were used as features in those comic books that went nationwide. Its creators felt that the new offspring from the first two booklets was the best yet. Even though the production of the booklets was in the developing and drawing stages, their marketing plan was already completed. CCA had sent letters and copies of the cover to dis- tributors, offering discounts to those who ordered 200 or more copies. The group was counting on just enough to pay the printing costs. The I0-member organization was i i gow ir i fvyboifr :A+pEQf'i ' i ,-,QQQE Nomma rom . Bumwi FEATAESRO I i f .A h - ,N ' ri Q, i 4. 2--.. V . rj L. ie . J also forming a graphic firm to supply the graphic needs of the community. "Not only will this be a source of income, but it will also give us an opportunity t0 work in the graphic design field," Lindgren said. From these final plans for the com- ic strips, Asylum had come a long way since its beginning. Asylum had its start in jim Erskine, a Western graduate. He had been printing his comic books for I5 cents an issue and selling them for a cover price of 51.75. Asylum's would-be cre- ators saw the opportunity to express their creative skills and make money at the same time. "We saw this as the solution to our financial problems," Glenn Millam, editor and a Bowling Green sopho- more, said. "jim had 34,000 in his pocket be- fore he printed a single copy," Millam said, "and his printing costs were only vZ2,000.n Lindgren was the first to begin drawing his own comic strip. "Eric first submitted his strip to the Herald, but they rejected it,,' Millam said. Because of this, Lindgren decid- ed to set out on his own. He spread the word and got enough members to Bowling Green sophomores Glenn Millam and Eric Lindgren pose with the characters they created for Asylum Komix. Despite three fail- ures, Asylum Komix managed to make a come- back with nationwide distribution.

Its creators all had a hand in com- ing up with a name for the publica- tion. "Asylum Komixn was chosen, along with the slogan, "We don't suf- fer from brain damage - we enjoy it!" The first I4 issues of Asylum Ko- mix never made a profit. In fact, many of the staff members were pulling money out of their own pockets to cover the bill to print the eight-page magazine. For the first eight months, the staff scraped for advertisers who would buy space in the publication. The last issue of the comic book's first life had only six pages, instead of the usual eight. Money was the major factor in the group's disbandment. A I,500-COPY run of the booklets cost 516984. The six pages cost 5122.50 - 881 of which the staff contributed, even though some money had been made on ad sales. The staff had planned one more issue for the semester, but those plans fell through. Advertising had been slow from the start, but it declined when some advertisers began to disapprove of the booklet's contents. The situation worsened when at least one business stopped advertising after the publication of a strip depict- ing an attempted rape. Another element that caused Cen- ter Theater to pull its ads was the lVlarch 31, 1986 opinion column, "Bit- tersweet 16." The column, written by Louisville sophomore Tim Bratcher, criticized the university administration for dis- regarding Western students' rights while attempting to recruit high school students. It referred to the pro- spective students as "juvenile bratsll and "snot-nosed runtsf' After eight issues were published in the fall of 1985 and six issues in the spring of 1986, lVlillam knew some- thing had to be done. During the summer lVlillam worked out a strategy to make Asylum Komix a success. The Franklin Favor- ite newspaper in Franklin, Ky., offered to print twice the copies for the same price. The ads were the same price but twice the size. Even marketing plans were devised for the selling of ads. Discounts were provided to merchants on the ad prices, and those who contracted in advance got a larger price cut. On Sept. zz, 1986 the Asylum Ko- mix was reincarnated - in a slightly different form. The new Asylum was printed on less expensive, tabloid-size paper. It was also without the controversial edi- torials and strong - some called it "obscene" - language that had caused some businesses to pull their advertising. Half - , mcfllf ci, a J Ill fe? But the most important change was the backing of the officially recog- nized student group, CCA. The weekly magazine also had a broader focus, including a continuing science-fiction story. The changes were largely a matter of survival to cut costs and attract more advertising. And they worked. For the first time, Asylum Komix broke even, but it was breaking the backs of its creators and destroying their grades. Something had to be done. So Asylum survived another change by going nationwide. "We saw what lim fErskineQ was making, and he didn't have to sell ads," lVlillam said. "This way we could concentrate on the illustrationf' These illustrators had come a long way since the publication of their first issue. The first staff had four mem- bers, but by the last issue of the second edition, the list of artists and writers had tripled. Lindgren was credited with much of the publications success since he had stayed with it from the beginning. "I-le was the main reason it was born," lVlillam said. "I guess you could call it his baby." Lindgren's baby may have been born three times, but he was hoping its third life would be a long-lasting one. I -Story by john Binkley -Photos by Mike Kiernan 135 rlxyfimi Kevin A ead for bu lthough all the busi- ness organizations had a busy year, each ex- perienced a different degree of involvement. An academic environment was en- couraged for members of the AC- COUNTING CLUB. Through professional speakers, the group hoped to bring students into contact with practicing accountants. "We try to foster a spirit of profes- sional responsibilityfl said Bernice Baggett, a Beechmont senior and president of the club. "We hope to develop a bond between those who have an interest in accounting." One of the major goals of the club was to become a chapter of Beta Al- pha Psi, the national accounting fra- ternity. The national board planned to meet and review the chapter in june 1987. Members attempted to do commu- nity service work by helping local firms with accounting problems. Learning how to run a business was the goal of the AGRICULTURE- BUSINESS CLUB members. Al- though the club had no specific mem- bership requirements, most of the stu- dents who joined were those studying ag-business. The group tried to take a trip each semester to an ag-business or agricul- tural area. In the fall, I5 club members went to Atlanta to visit Gold Kist, an agricultural co-op. "It was a good learning exper- ience," Alvin Bedel, the club's adviser, said. The organization also stayed busy raising money for a trip to New Or- leans, La. They hoped to be able to observe exporting activities occurring along the shores of the Mississippi River. Along with an educational func- tion, the Ag-Business Club had a so- cial function as well. It served as a bond between those students pursuing the ag-business option. Another business organization also concerned with the social aspect of learning was the AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR PERSON- NEL ADMINISTRATION. This group appealed to those wanting careers in personnel. "We try to make business fun," said Owensboro senior Brent Cates, president of the professional organiza- tion. "It's interesting to mix the real world with the fun one." The club tried to "broaden the as- pects" for its members, Robert Penn, the group's adviser, said. It accom- plished this by having a variety of activities each semester. It was hoped that this exposure to the world of per- sonnel administration would enhance the club members' chances of success after graduation. The group's goals for the year were to broaden its speaker list and to in- crease membership. "It's not really that time-demand- ing," Cates said. "We're a small group, but we're getting bigger. We're trying to keep the chapter goingf' If a business major scored high aca- demically, he had the opportunity to join BETA GAMMA SIGMA. The honor society recognized business majors in the top to percent of the junior class and the top zo percent of the senior class. "We have a banquet once a year to initiate the members," Vice President Audrey Smith, a Paducah senior, said. Smith said that the chapter was "pretty inactive." This was because the group was primarily for recogni- iness tion. Another business club was con- cerned with being a "catalyst among student business organizations," Presi- dent Mark Lord, a Bowling Green senior, said. This club was the COUNCIL OF STUDENT BUSINESS ORGANIZA- TIONS. "We act as a student advisory council to the dean of the College of Business Administration," Lord said. "We try to assist in the growth and development of the college." There was only one membership requirement - a student had to be the president of any student business organization. Leadership was stressed among the members of the club. According to Lord, the council's major accomplishment for the year was assisting in re-accreditation efforts for the College of Business Adminis- tration. "We also raised funds for a faculty research scholarship," Lord said. Although they worked with facul- ty, participants in the council also tried to implement programs which would help to add the students into existing community programs.

Limlingam was a management major. One group that tried to get fresh- men and sophomores involved was the DATA PROCESSING MAN- AGEMENT ASSOCIATION. V The club was for those interested in computers in general or computer Af management information systems. "We want to get students interact- ing with each other," adviser Ron Lin- ton said. "We want them involved with local business people." The club had a workshop in which they brought in business professionals to "tall: technology," Linton said. This helped members to get contacts in the information systems field. Officers of DELTA SIGMA PI set two goals for the business fraterni- ty: acquiring more "quality people" and establishing a more close-knit group, said Jane Neale, a junior from Cerulean and the club's vice president. "We didn't want resume stuffers," Neale said. "We focused on getting quality people instead of just num- bers." The group managed to meet their goal, gaining nine pledges who brought their total membership to 50.

"We are closer and show it more," Neale said. "If we see someone in the chapter, we go up and hug them." Among Delta Sigma Pi's many ac- complishments was the publishing of the seventh edition of the Abacus, a calendar book reviewing the school year. The group was also named Most Outstanding Chapter in the Region during a regional conference in Sep- tember. For students planning marketing careers, there was the collegiate chap- ter of the American Marketing Asso- ciation, the MARKETING CLUB. Its aim was to acquaint stu- dents with other people who worked in a variety of marketing positions. "Aggressive leadership and good program planning has helped the size of the group increase," adviser Bob Erffmeyer said. Being a member meant increasing one's knowledge of marketing, but it also meant more, said Bowling Green senior Kris Beebee, promotional direc- tor for the club. "When you're out looking for jobs, employers are looking at more than GPA," Beebee said. "They are look- ing for the well-rounded person who gets involved." Club members got involved in a fund-raiser by selling ,555 coupon books. They were responsible for ask- ing businesses to donate items for the books. The Marketing Club also conduct- ed a workshop for the local area foster care agency. The workshop was devot- ed to creating a marketing plan to help increase the number of adults willing to be a foster parent. The most important week of the year for another business organization was in April. Labeled National Secre- taries Week, this time period featured a spring banquet for the NATION- AL COLLEGIATE ASSOCI- ATION OF SECRETARIES. The group also sponsored a tea party for secretaries on campus. "I think we are the only organiza- tion on campus that honors secretaries this week," said Bowling Green sopho- more Patty Brewington, club vice president. Members voted to change the group's name for the upcoming year to Collegiate Secretaries International. They decided upon the new name be- cause of their new association with Professional Secretaries International QPSIJ. The aspiring secretaries attended a national convention in New Orleans, La., in the spring. They were taught "what a good secretary is," Brewing- ton said. "I really feel good about the club," she said. "I think a lot of people are reluctant to join. I wish we were big- ger. Really, it's for secretaries, but it could be for anyone in business." For students with an interest in business, membership in PHI BETA LAMBDA provided the perfect opportunity to develop their professional skills. The organization stressed community involvement in its quest to expose members to the real business world. One of the group's most intersting activities was coined "shadow day." Members were paired with profession- als in local businesses and spent the day following them like a "shadow" to observe them. Community involvement was also demonstrated by a Christmas angel project for Big Brothers and Big Sis- ters of Bowling Green. Letters from little children written to Santa were collected and hung on Christmas trees in local banks. People could take let- ters and sponsor the children by buying gifts for them.

The club had been defunct for two years, but "we're getting it back on its feet," said President Ann Gardner, a senior journalism major from Roanoke, Va. "Western's whole Pre-Law Club - joe Fima has kind of been a secret," she said, "but it's important that we do get the organization going and get some unity to the pre-law studentsf' Calling the people who go to law school a uhodge-podgef' Gardner said the club's members were a diverse group as far as majors were concerned. Majors ranged from government to philosophy. The group's main purpose was to generate a flow of information so that students would have help with passing the Law School Admissions Test QLSATQ, Gardner said. "Most peope are in the dark about that," she said. "They need to gain a better perspec- tive on what lies ahead." The area of banking was represent- ed by the YOUNG BANKERS OF KENTUCKY. The group worked on promoting new membership by visiting classes and encouraging those interested in banking to join. "We almost doubled the member- shipf' President Chris Wethington, a Campbellsville junior, said. "We told students it would be good for them to come and learn more about it." Being a member had helped him gain insight into the different ways of banking, Wetherington said. The business organizations were a diverse group, but they shared a desire to learn and a love for the busi- ness. I -Story by Jennifer Strange In front of a group of students.

It didn't always mean participating in complicated experiments or doing all-night research. For stu- dents involved in the many science organizations, science meant partici- pating in social functions as well as academic activities. One organization that had few re- quirements for membership was the ANTHROPOLOGY CLUB. This group was for anyone interested in anthropology, adviser Jack Schock said. The club focused primarily on ac- tivities dealing with anthropology rather than on other aspects of soci- ology, Schock said. Membership requirements were more structured for another organiza- - tion, the biological honor society, BETA BETA BETA. "The purpose of Beta Beta Beta was to generate interest and to pro- mote academic excellence in biological studies," London senior Todd Che- ever, the group's president, said. Members of Beta Beta Beta had to have nine credit hours of biology, a 3.0 grade point average in biology and a 2.75 GPA overall. Dues for becoming a member were 53 a year. The organization focused on two main activities. "We help with the L.Y. Lancaster Lecture and Banquet," Cheever said. "We help with the reception and we encourage our members to attend and to donate their time.', The L.Y. Lancaster Lecture and Banquet was an annual dinner and lecture series named for the former Western president. The group also helped with a blood drive and participated in a regional conference on biology. "Tri-Beta encourages them fmem- bersj to do research at Western and to go on to regionalsf' Cheever said. Competition concerning research was sponsored by the Association of Southern Biologists. The CHEMISTRY CLUB's purpose was to "further stimulate in- terest in chemistry," President Duane Osborne, a Glendale sophomore, said. This was accomplished by having "in- formative programs dealing with chemistry or related fields and meet- ings involved in investigation by stu- dents of current questions," Osborne said. Requirements for membership in the Chemistry Club were having a genuine interest in chemistry and pay- ing a S5 annual fee. "Basically, we're really low key. We try to spark some interest," Osborne said. "A lot of the times we're too busy looking at the trees to see the forest. We try to have guest speakers at every meetingf, Along with having guest speakers, the club also took field trips. During the spring they traveled to the East- man Chemical Co. in Kingsport, Tenn. "The spring semester is a rebuild- ing time for us," Osborne said. "En- rollment is down." Another club activity was the for- mation of a team to do small chemical demonstrations. The team planned to :travel to area high schools and junior :high schools the following fall. "You can show them something that sparks, and it'll stick in the back of their minds," Osborne said. i The club offered clean-up kits to students in local schools, Osborne 'said. The kits cost S2 and included a sponge, a washcloth, soap and match- I es. "It helps us get a little money into our pockets," Osborne said. An organization that had problems becoming active was the geography honor society, GAMMA THETA UPSILON. The group was a professional soci- ety for students. To be a member, a student had to maintain a 3.0 GPA in his or her geography tract and be a geography major or minor. A student also had to have I2 hours in geography. "We're a vacated organization, and we're trying to get going," Vice Presi- dent Tim Stockton, a Cave City soph- omore, said. Gamma Theta Upsilon was a little more selective than some groups, said Summer Shade junior Denise Rouse, While studying for an upcoming quiz in their anatomy class, Franklin freshman Sarah Hodson hands a bone to Shawn Webber, a Nashville, Tenn., freshman. The two reviewed both notes and bones for the quiz. club president. "Gamma Theta Upsilon is more for those specifically in geography," he said. The group often combined activi- ties with the GEOGRAPHY CLUB, such as lectures and field trips. The Geography Club was unlike Gamma Theta Upsilon in several ways. The group had more members, 35 as opposed to Gamma Theta Upsi- lon's io, and they were more of a social organization while the latter took a more academic direction. "The Geography Club is primarily social and was intended for geography majors and minors. We have people that join who aren't eitherf, adviser Conrad Moore said. "We've spon- sored social activities that have some academic content to it." The group sponsored both a fall and a spring hog roast, which was a picnic type of function with food and games. "Considering that geography is a social discipline, there is more of a variety. We combine so many other aspects of other disciplines," Rouse, also a Geography Club member, said. The organization planned to have a bake sale, have more club meetings and try to rebuild and boost morale, Rouse said. A student needed only to be en- rolled in Western to be involved in the GEOLOGY CLUB. The purpose of the club was to "promote interest and understanding in geology and geological processes," Kenneth Kuehn, organization adviser, said. The Geology Club took one-day excursions which were informal trips that focused on subjects of interest. The club received "better participa- tion" on the excursions, Kuehn said. On the group's excursions, they traveled to places such as Mammoth Cave where they studied surface geol- ogy. Another trip was made to Ieptha Knob, near Shelbyville, where they visited the site of an ancient meteorite. The club also took "formal" field trips which were longer than the ex- cursions, Kuehn said. The group trav- eled to the Smokey Mountains on one of their field trips. The organization also had guest speakers as well as fund raising activities. "There's a spectrum of things we do," Kuehn said. The organization hoped to sponsor departmental competitions, Kuehn said. "We're a small but active group. We like to do things,', Kuehn said. "We're not really goal-oriented. We keep things diverse and try to get out to do things." When students became members of the SOCIETY OF PHYSICS STUDENTS,they paidafeeofiio, received a national membership to the organization and obtained a magazine subscription and a newsletter. The purpose of the group was "mostly to offer an opportunity for physics majors to get together and so- cialize," said Scot Stewart, a Bowling Green senior and one of three activity directors. The organization held field trips and sponsored spring and fall picnics. On one field trip, the group visited Huntsville, Ala., where they toured the Space Center and the National Aeronautics and Space Administra- tion "to see what they do and get future employment ideas," Stewart said. "We observed laser research that the Army was doing and talked to people studying infrared imaging and solar wind," Stewart said. "We seem to be more socially active than other science clubsf' Stewart said. "We see each other more outside of meetingsf' Although some of the science orga- nizations had strict requirements, they all managed to have a mixture of social and academic functions.

Carrico not- A little bit of everything pecial interest organiza- tions were sometimes la- beled as outsiders be- cause their interests differed from other groups. However, they served to meet the needs of cer- tain individuals. One special interest group fought these labels and spread its influence successfully. We're not just a bunch of radicals. We're an educational and political but non-partisian organization that's con- cerned about our futuref' said Bruce Cambron, president of the UNIT- ED CAMPUSES TO PRE- VENT NUCLEAR WAR CUCAMQ. Cambron, a junior from Louisville, said the group's concern was to raise campus and public awareness about the nuclear arms race and other cur- rent issues. Its long-term objective was to end the nuclear arms race. Getting people involved had some- times been a problem for new organi- zations, but the three-year old UCAM had a positive start since its inception. Its membership doubled to more than 55 members. The group took a two-way ap- proach in the direction of raising awareness-having a speaker on an event each semester and supplement- ing the discussed topic by regular handouts of leaflets. UCAM member Vishwesh Bhatt, a freshman from India, voiced his con- cerns regarding ecology that could be ruined by the dumping of nuclear wast into the sea. His commitment to UCAM was also strengthened by the growing membership of the group. "We are very effective, and more people are joining and working to- gether to get the message across," Bhatt said. For that reason, UCAM under- took a community-wide project enti- tled "Give Peace a Chance." They also participated in a protest at the Cape Canaveral missle-launching base. Members of the SPECULA- TIVE FICTION SOCIETY I 42 Organizations were not characters out of science-fic- tion books as some might have thought. "There are some that do think of us in such terms, but we're not any- thing like that,', Annette Carrico, the society's librarian, said. "We're a service organization for people interested in science fiction and fantasy. We have a library available for our members which includes about 150 books," Carrico said. Besides that, the club screened vid- eotapes of sci-fi movies regularly at their meetings. The sci-fi buffs also frequented the local cinemas whenever accepted into the program. Cindy Calvert, president of the group, said the program tried to at- tract students with wide experiences because they believed this quality would make them better social work- ers. "Many people become social work- ers because of having gone through one or more of these experiences," Calvert, a Bowling Green sophomore, said. "I was a foster child, and I can understand what it takes. Iive also done numerous volunteer works. Thatis what the department looks forf' Calvert's opinion of a good social ed that the quali- ties of the movies were improving and said they of- fered more than Godzilla and Ul- traman, the kinds of sci-fi movies she grew up watching. On writers, Ca rrico said, "The bad "We're not just a bunch of radi- cals. We're an educational and political but non-partisan orga- nization that's concerned about our future." -Bruce Cambron worker was one who was dedi- cated to helping people.

"And you canit take your work home ones are those that go with the atti- tude that that's not possible, but the good ones are attracted to the chal- lenge of creativity and because they can do it right. "Nothing's farfetched now. It's just a matter of stretching your imagi- nation," she added. The group had been rebuilding their membership, and Carrico could see the club members plugging along "even though we're in the doldrums, but then we've been around for IO years." Issues on child abuse, incest and foster children, and raising awareness of these social topics were the major concerns of the ASSOCIATION OF STUDENT SOCIAL WORKERS. An enriched life exper- ience also provided the students with a greater understanding and approach toward such issues. The students were required to sub- mit an autobiographical sketch of their life experiences before they were with you. You have to be professional about that." The group centered much of their volunteer work on helping foster chil- dren and the elderly in the communi- ty. Members carried out clothing and food drives and visitations to foster homes. Calvert said that the club's Chil- dren for Poverty project gave its mem- bers greater insight into social work. The WESTERN SOCIO- LOGICAL SOCIETY provided a place for students to meet and talk shop. The society featured speakers on social issues and organized presenta- tions by faculty to encourage social interaction among its students. Membership was open to all soci- ology majors and minors and criminol- ogy minors. The club, however, dis- played "openness and willingness to accept anyone who even has a remote interest in sociology or sociological concerns," Ed Bohlander, the group's adviser, said. "Our plan now is to increase mem- bership and develop some new and meaningful programs with the stu- dents for enhancing understanding of sociology from all kinds of perspec- tive," Bohlander said. The sociology department had re- cently introduced a criminology mi- nor, and this had attracted more stu- dents into the program. "I think the demand has gone up, and it's because people are more inter- ested in deviant behavior and also seeking a specialization in their stud- ies," said Tim Fowlkes, the society's interim president and a graduate stu- dent from Fort Knox. The CAMPUS CARTOON- ISTS ASSOCIATION CCCAJ was a revived group of the "Asylum Komix' staff, a comic book created by students. The demise of the publica- tion was due to difficulty in breaking even on production costs. By regrouping, these students en- joyed the benefits and privileges of being a recognized student organiza- tion of Western. "We're here to give students in graphic arts a place to gain experience and practice their talent and skills learned in class," Eric Lindgren, the founder and president of CCA, said. "We're open to anyone interested in graphics fwhoj can contribute something to the organization and be helped by it,', the sophomore from Winston-Salem, N.C., said. CCA was working on putting out two comic books to be distributed na- tionwide. "Our plans are to get the books off the ground and also to have a graphics organization to provide supplies to the community," Lindgren said. "Our major accomplishment- coming in at cost," Lindgren replied with a laugh. Special interest groups provided a sprinkle of variety to the organization- al structure on campus. They had the ingredients of success. I -Story by KK. Qheah X While protesting campus recruitment by the CIA, Devin Perillo, a junior from Subtle, tries to keep his hands warm.

They also tried to help students and faculty come to know Christ through physical, social, mental and religious areas of life. One organization that presented the gospel was the BAPTIST STUDENT UNION CBSUQ. Students led meetings and Bible study groups. This leadership sent 109 stu- dents to the State Student Conven- tion in September and 30 representa- tives to the International Student Conference. "We try to get as many students to go as possible," said Louisville gra- duate student David Lyninger, presi- dent of BSU. "We set up in groups so we can meet different people. Our main emphasis is to respect one an- other and their religion." BSU wanted to continue the growth pattern, strengthen disciple- ship training and develop successful leadership, campus minister Clay Mulford said. "Our main emphasis was trying to develop spiritual growth in members," Lyninger said. "In ways of spiritual fmembershipj we offer a choir, dra- ma, singing and vocal ensembles." Summer missionaries were another way in which the group reached out. BSU, a member of the Southern Bap- tist Convention, had jobs available for people interested in summer mission- aries. Approximately IO students par- ticipated in the program. Lyninger planned to function as a youth minister for six months in Eu- rope. CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST presented the claim of Christ to students on campus by "in- troducing jesus Christ to people who don't know him, or by building and developing that relationship," Thom- as Weakley, campus adviser, said. To facilitate an atmosphere where a person could grow spiritually, small group Bible studies were set up in fra- ternities, residence halls and other places on campus. A large fellowship group known as Prime Time met once a week, and a leadership training class was offered for those interested in learning how to be better witnesses for Christ. "We want to offer the holiest envi- ronment for persons to develop in all areas of life, that is, physical, social, mental and religious," Weakley said. Campus Crusade for Christ was the only organization with a full-time trained staff. This staff was to assist the students with whatever needs they might have. All of Campus Crusade's graduat- ing seniors had committed themselves for the future, Weakley said. "I guess our major accomplishment is that IO percent of our active mem- bers are now considering or applying to go in full-time vocation Christian work and service," Weakley said. "The purpose of FELLOW- SHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATH- LETES CFCAQ is to present to coaches and athletes and all whom they influence, the challenge and ad- venture of knowing Jesus Christ as their personal savior and to encourage participation in a local church,', advis- er Ray Rose said. FCA opened their meetings and activities to athletes, non-athletes, stu- dents and faculty. "We want to have fun as a Christian and fellowship as a Christian," President Phillip Woos- ley, a Bowling Green sophomore, said. The meetings consisted of personal testimonies from students, prayer, mu- sic and guest speakers. The non-denominational group tried to "keep enthusiasm of Christ in our meetings, to unconditionally love people, and to make an impact on campus through love and service," Woosley said. During the fall semester, FCA sponsored their annual ioo-hour jog- a-thon. "The jog-a-thon is a money raiser for FCA that projects members to keep moving,', Rose said. The fund-raiser was also a great "out-reach time," Woosley said. "We are a vibrant, growing group who strives to deepen their relation- ship with Christ," said William Lane, campus adviser of the GREAT COMMISSION STUDENTS.

They accomplished this by plan- ning and participating in a student leadership conference. The club's major accomplishment was attending a spiritual conference. Seven students traveled to Florida for the outreach conference. The students hoped to expand their attendance to 25 people for their Bible study session. The N AVIGATORS consisted of students who had a desire to know more about jesus Christ, John Greer, a Palm Dale, Calif., senior, said. Not only did the Navigators have a small-group Bible study, but they at- tended the Mid!South Regional Con- ference with z5o people from other states. "It was encouraging to be around committed people - those who have basic goals to live for Christ and to At the annual jog-a-thon, Bowling Green resident Mickey Moody takes his turn at run- ning the cross around L.T.

Each person chose one out of six various workshops to attend at the conference. The topics ranged from Jesus' view of one's relationship with him, Jesus, view on the Word, manag- ing money with biblical reference, and worship and prayer. One speaker at the conference spoke on defeating the "dragon of the Word." This message was about the "cultural values and how the Bible is not to be conformed to the world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds," Greer said. "That is Ro- mans I2ZI2.H Another spiritual group was the WESLEY FOUNDATION. This group was the only religious or- ganization that presented a weekly church service. "Our worship service is led by stu- dents, and we have a minister. It's not a typical Methodist servicef, Presi- dent Nancy Murphy, a junior from Madisonville, said. "We are struc- tured toward Methodism. We're in- terdenominational, though. Any de- nomination can come." The Foundation also had two re- treats during the school year. A fall retreat was held at Camp Decker, and a spring retreat was held at Camp Loucon in Leitchfield. The theme for the fall retreat was "Your Faith Sto- ry." Another special retreat was a spring break trip to Sarasota, Fla. About eight members rented a house for the week. Not only did they spend time on the beach, but time was also spent in devotions each night. C Various speakers presented inter- esting topics to the group during their weekly night devotion and discussion group. Speakers included Sam McFar- land, a Western professor, who shared his experiences about a trip to the Soi viet Uniong Dr. john Long, also a Western professor, who spoke on Christianity and Islarng and Dale Brody, a Camp Loucon staff member, who presented a program on the histo- ry of the Methodist camp. Another interdenominational reli- gious organization was the WESTQ ERN CHRISTIAN STU- DENT FELLOWSHIP. They Q-ti 'ere '.

"We have small groups that we call our families. There are just a few members .... It's better because we can have more support from a small group," Collard said. "We also get to know one another better. We get clos- er to one another." Assistant campus minister Mark Whited and his wife Becky took part in a missionary program. "He and Becky are with a program called 'Youth with a Missionf They take part in a discipleship training schoolf' President Robert Kirby, a Bowling Green senior, said. "They have been based in Hawaii. They go for three months and do classroom training." In addition, the two planned to go to the Philippines. The students gath- ered at His House, the campus house, for their Tuesday-night Bible studies. The house was located on East 14th Street. The group also met on Sunday nights. YOUNG LIFE was established with the intention of spreading the Gospel of jesus Christ to high school students, adviser Michael Toerner said. Because the school year was usually busy, retreats were offered during the summer months. Camps for Young Life were offered in Colorado and North Carolina. "QAtj the camp in Colorado you do more hiking and camping in the wilderness. You rough it to test your- self and to break barriers," Bowling Green freshman John Dempsey said. "College-age kids go up and coun- sel high school kidsf' Dempsey said. "It's more of a church camp with a club format. We talk and tell others about having Christ's faith." At times it was hard being a mem- ber of such an organization as Young Life, Dempsey said. "It's really hard. It's a little easier for me because I live in town.

Lwprfasxfv .z Cyclers Eddie Gillon, a Park City freshman, and Mark Brennan, an Overland Park, Kan., junior, push to reach a hilltop. They were riding in the Tobacco Road Tour. I 50 Organizations Out for an early morning ride, Gillon and Brennan coast along a country road. The West- ern Flyers Cycling Club rode in two large tours in the fall. he cyclist's thighs began to ache as he started the upward climb of a major hill. Sweat dropped off his forehead when he stood up, using all his weight to push the pedals down. Something inside told him to keep going. As he topped the crest of the hill, a triumphant feeling of ac- complishment seemed to make all his efforts worthwhile. "It is this kind of feeling the West- ern Flyers want to express through the club,,' Eddie Gillon, a freshman from Park City, said. From the time they had their first meeting in August, the Western Fly- ers quickly became one of the newest and fastest-growing clubs on campus. The club consisted of those who had a common interest in cycling and want- ed to increase their knowledge of the sport. The Flyers could be composed of Western students, faculty and alumni. Even cyclists who were not affiliated with Western could participate. The main purpose of the club as stated by the Flyers' constitution was, "to promote safe cycling techniques and health through cycling." According to Neil Brockman, a ju- nior from Casey Creek, the club also wanted to "create an overall awareness of cycling." Other functions of the club includ- ed promoting races, tours and moun- tain biking. "The racing cyclists are the cyclists who are going out in aim for the high- est possible physical fitness," Mark Brennan, a junior from Overland Park, Kan., and an avid racing cyclist, said. "We are the fastest cyclists." Gillon felt tours were the "most enjoyable part of cycling." Mountain biking was one of the most interesting types of cycling the Flyers experienced. This type of cy- cling involved a special type of bike called an A.T.B. fAll Terrain Bikel. With the A.T.B., the cyclists were able to ride over logs, through creeks, and across rough terrain. Gus Moore, a senior from Murray and president of the Flyers, said an iexample of mountain biking was, "cy- fcling on an old logging road or cattle Qtrails on a farm. This type of cycling ibrings me back to nature." , An important idea the Flyers -taught while group riding was "draft- ing," Drafting involved combatting wind resistance by having one lead rider break the wind for those follow- ing him. When riding in a group, it lwas more efficient for the riders to form a straight line. "The lead rider, called the puller, acts sorta like a windshield and creates a vacuum for the other riders behind him, which makes pedalling much easier," Brennan said. 'Tm still flab- bergasted about how much difference there is in riding the puller and then riding behind." According to Brennan, a big prob- lem the Flyers faced while cycling on the streets was traffic. "Whenever you cycle in town youb In preparation for the tour, Kate Shepherd, a senior from Murray, stretches her legs. The Tobacco Road Tour stretched for 65 miles.

"The aggres- sive drivers are the worst, but there is not much you can do about it when you're on a bike." When members of the club had difficulties with their bikes, Broclcman helped them determine what was wrong and what needed to be done. "A lot of cyclists come to me to fix their bikes," Brockman said. "I have enough spare bike parts to build an- other bike of my own. Although I'll never build another bike with these parts, they're good to have just in case a part of the bike malfunctions." With the nationwide trend toward healthier activities, the Flyers became popular and showed outstanding growth, acquiring a total of 40 mem- bers the first semester. "The club has grown because we show a very welcome attitude to other bikers," said Moore, whose main re- sponsibility as president of the Flyers was to motivate the club and facilitate growth. "Also, only five miles from Western and a cyclist can be in the country.', "I believe the reason behind the popularity and growth of the club is Greg Lemond. He has created a big interest in cycling in America because he was the first American cyclist to win the famous Tour de France," said Brennan. Also the triathlon craze, which, according to Brennan, "is the largest growing sport in America,', has attributed to the growth of cycling. One of the major goals of the Fly- ers was to get official recognition from Western. The club planned to use the track for time trials which were necessary if a cyclist was to improve his riding. "We would like to use the track on campus during specific times during the week, and the only way you can do that is through official recognition," Gillon said.

I 53 Flyers ll sort of port ttracting new members was one of the com- mon characteristics of all the sports clubs this year. Through the exposure they re- ceived from competitions, the sports organizations helped their members grow with the clubs' achievements. Une of the newest clubs on campus was the WESTERN FLYERS CYCLING CLUB, which became an official organization this year. For only 85, any student, alumni or facul- ty member could join. Western Flyers was "one of the best organizations I've joined,', Eddie Gillon, a Glasgow junior, said. Becoming organized and well-es- tablished were the main accomplish- ments for the Western Flyers. 'Tm very proud of this club," Murray junior Gus Moore, president of the club, said. "We're on the way to being an important club at Western." The Flyers' activities consisted of many cycling tours throughout the year, including: The Tobacco Road Tour held in Russellville, My 01d Kentucky Home Tour between Louis- ville and Bardstown and a mountain- biking tour at Land Between the Lakes. "Touring is my favorite part of the Flyers' activitiesf' Gillon said. "Tour- ing gives you the chance to enjoy yourself and enjoy some of the beauti- ful countryside around us." Recreation of a different form was enjoyed by the members of another sports club. Practicing with their guns and educating people on how to use them safely was what the GUN CLUB was all about. "The only requirement to be a member is that a member must be willing to abide by all safe gun han- dling rules," said Lee Stinnett, a sen- ior from Hardinsburg and president of the club. Although the Gun Club was not entirely sports-oriented, the members still enjoyed the thrill of competition. To improve their shooting, members tried to practice at least once a week. One accomplishment the Gun Club strived for was to create new interest in the organization and to es- tablish a firm club again. One activity the group hoped would help achieve this goal was a cookout. All alumni, students and fac- ulty members with an interest in guns were invited to come and discuss guns and gun safety. Club members stressed safety at all of their meetings. Special meetings were held and the only topic covered was how to handle firearms safely. Members were urged at all times that safety came first. The SOCCER CLUB was re- garded as a formal organization and competed against other clubs throughout Kentucky and Tennessee. The club formed when there were large turnouts for the soccer team, and good players were being turned down. Some of those players who did not make the regular team got together and formed the Soccer Club, said john Greer, a Palmdale, Calif., junior and club member. "This is the first year that we are playing scheduled games with other university clubs," Greer said. Through lots of practice, ,usually three to four times a week, the Soccer Club earned a winning season. The WKU FRISBEE TEAM consisted of seven members. All mem- bers had an interest in frisbee-related activities. The new game in frisbee was frisbee football, Greg Herschel, a St. Louis, Mo., freshman, said. Herschel was one of the founders of the Frisbee Team. "I will be looking for more mem- bers this year," Herschel said. To be a member of the team, one had to have an interest in frisbee and be willing to learn more about frisbee activities. The team had a contract with the intramural organization to play frisbee football in the spring, Herschel said. The players planned to compete against other frisbee teams from dif- ferent universities. Frisbee Team practices were held three times a week, and each member was expected to attend all practices. l Through all the practices, members were able to tone all of their frisbee skills. The JUDO CLUB had a busy year. With competitions, practices and free demonstrations, activities never ceased. Membership consisted of anyone with an interest in judo. Although membership suffered because of the recent popularity of karate, the club still had IO members. "The difference between judo and karate is that judo is a martial art sport with self defense applications, but ka- rate is only a means of self defense and not a sport," Fred Barnett, adviser, said. The judo Club practiced twice a week in Smith Stadium to get ready for competitions. Some of the compe- titions included the Bellarmine Col- lege Tournament and the Kentucky State judo Competition. The club also held free demonstra- tions to show and explain the fine art of judo. One demonstration was held during a Boy Scout Jamboree and an- other was held at Lover's Lane Rac- quet and Sports Centre in Bowling Green. Through different levels of partici- pation, the sports clubs were able to grow by attracting new members. I -Story by Joe C.

At first glance a visi- V tor would have thought the university had been invaded by the Country Music Awards. Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and even the 'ludds made appearances at the Y'all Come Back Saloon. Yet, as the emcee began, it soon became obvi- ous that the 700 people attending had flocked to yet another Kappa Delta Washboard. Strains of songs that had become familiar to Western's greeks came from the 96 Kappa Deltas on stage. "KDS welcome you to our jamboree," the sorority girls sang in their welcom- ing act. And soon it was time for the annual competition to begin among the greeks. "Washboard is a song-and-dance show that the KDS put on to raise money for our local philantropy," Terri Hamilton, a Horse Cave senior, said. The organization benefitting from the sorority's efforts was the Bowling Green Child Protection Agency. Co-chairwomen Hamilton and . , ' fe. , .haw 5 , Becky McCormick, a Hendersonville, Tenn., senior, began preparations six months prior to the Oct. 23 event. Most groups invited to participate prepared for about three weeks. "On Kappa Delta's part, it takes hours and hours of work that would be impossible if the other greek orga- nizations didn't participate," Hamil- ton said. The greelcs spent their long hours all for the thrill of taking home an old- f a s h i o n e d washboard with an en- graved plate stating "first place." "Ours is placed promi- nently in the - trophy room of our fraternity house," Doug Wilke, a Bedford, Mass. senior, said of Kappa Sigma's second-place washboard. "We were ecstatic to place since it boardf' was the first time in many years that we had had such a good show," Wilke said. Wilke narrated the show which featured a Greek Aid telethon. fo f X "The joy of giving the money to the Child Protection Agency. . . is the best part of putting on Wash- "It was a takeoff of all the Live Aid, Farm Aid stuff. We figured the greeks needed some aid toof' he added jokingly. Kappa Sigma was one of the many fraternities that participated in the show. "We had much more participation by fraternities this year. It helped us raise more money than usual," Hamil- ton said. The sorority raised 31,500 from ticket sales and collected toys as entry fees, all of which went to the Child Protection -loey Dean Aggncy. "The joy of giving the money to the CPA and seeing how much it helps them is the best part of putting on Washboard," Joey Dean, a Louisville senior, said. "Washboard is a very relaxed atmo- sphere with the country-western theme. That's why we have it in Gar- rett instead of Van Meter, and why the KDS wear blue jeans," Hamilton said. The shows ran from five to seven minutes and were judged on theme, orginality, choreography and overall effect. The Alpha Delta Pi sorority and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity cap- tured the first-place washboard over I2 competing acts. Both used a saloon setting to tell stories of the Wild West. Alpha Omicron Pi and Kappa Sig- ma placed second while Sigma Kappa and Sigma Alpha Epsilon placed third. "We had the Ylall Come Back Sa- loon which told the story of how the saloon girls helped solve the problems of a man in the Qld West," Melinda York, an ADPi, said. The ADPis wore bright-colored satin dresses as the saloon girls, and York played the bartender. "It was fun. I got to put a lot of character into it," she said. "We enjoy putting on Wash- board," Hamilton said. "It gives greeks a chance to compete in a friend- ly atmosphere." I -Story by Susan Stockton -Photos by Sam Upshaw lr. During judging, Washboard winners ADPis cheer for their group. The winners received an old-fashioned washboard with an engraved plate stating "first place."

President jennifer Hayden said a greater emphasis on philanthropy made the year a bit different than others. "I think fthe philanthropyj was one of our stronger points this year," Hayden, a Bowling Green junior, said. . "We really enjoy it," she said. However, sometimes the contributions to local and national charities took its toll on the group of about 90 women, she said.

T: Other philanthropic activities in- 1 eluded helping at the Wendy's Classic J 10K Road Race in November and col- lecting books for the Rivendell Chil- dren and Youth Center. Hayden said the ADPis also served on a "Hallow- een Watch" in October, guiding the city's children safely across the streets on their quest for candy. When the sorority wasn't piling up community service hours, its members took time out for the year's social events. A Christmas dance at The Bluegrass on College Street and a spring formal at the Holidome on the 31-W Bypass were a few of the high- lights, Hayden said. The ADPi Football Classic in Oc- tober pitted Western's fraternity flag football teams against one another- an annual affair that was the sorority's big moneymaker. Hayden estimated the sorority pulled 600 individual service hours during the fall and the first half of the spring semester. Its national philan- thropy was the Ronald McDonald House Foundation. Hayden said the sorority "always has good intentionsf' but it may have overprogrammed this year as far as philanthropic events. "We feel bad if we have to turn anything down," Hayden said. "We've done so much, it really brought us closer." Closeness was also a concern of the ALPHA XI DELTA sorority, which had two missions during the year. ' The sorority wanted a larger mem- bership, and it hoped to retain the closeness the small group has had in the past. The group got both. Ever since the membership for the AZDS dropped to I5 two years ago, there had been a concern to attract more women to the AZD house on State Street, President Laura Cooley, a Prestonburg junior, said. After six initiates were added last fall, the sorority's membership reached 35. Cooley said she would like to have about 50 girls in the sorority. "Our sisterhood is very special," she said, "and we want more girls to become part of ir." Keeping the close Sisterhood was just as important as the increased membership. "I think our number-one strength is the closeness we have,', Cooley said. "Every sister is not just a sorority sis- ter, but a friend." In working together for their na- tional philanthropy, the American Lung Association, and serving the community, the AZDS participated in several charitable causes. Among the causes was Bowl for Kids' Sakes at the Crescent Bowl on Nashville Road, where the AZDS raised about ,iioo for Bowling Green's Big Brotherf Big Sister program, Coo- ley said. At the McNeil School on Creason Drive, the AZDS had a haunted house in November to help the Par- ent-Teachers Association earn money for new playground equipment, Coo- ley said. A Skate-a-thon in the spring was scheduled to be the sororityls big fund-raiser for the American Lung Association. Mixers with fraternities, including Kappa Sigma and Sigma Chi, were among the social affairs of the year. A Christmas party and a tea recognizing the Sigma Kappa recolonization in the fall were other activities. An exciting flag football season, in which the AZDS made it to the semi- finals of the intramural league, was a nice reward after hard work on the field, Cooley said. Even off the foot- ball field, the group kept the excite- ment level up all year, she said. "We tried to keep the energy and enthusiasm up with everybody."

But while the 70-member SAE chapter pledged nine men, the two- member Psi Phi chapter pledged only one-the first new member since 1984. OMEGA PSI PHI members had the highest grade point average requirement for black fraternities-a 2.5, said Tony Wilson, a Lexington senior and the group's vice president and treasurer. That may have discour- aged pledges, he said. Even though the chapter's mem- bership had waned, "We're still trying to hold it together," Wilson said. The chapter kept active by spon- soring parties at the Cellar. It also sponsored Omega Week, a week of parties with other members of the greek system held April 6-12. In addi- tion, the group participated in West- ern's Special Olympics. In the area of community service, the fraternity sent checks to the Mus- cular Dystrophy Telethon and the March of Dimes. Even with only three members, the fraternity's strength was "brother- hood," Wilson said. "We have good support for each other." SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON was also active in community service. Although President Doug Gott, a Hopkinsville junior, declined to say how many hours of service his frater- nity had done, he said he would have been surprised if anyone else had beat- en the group in performing communi- ty service. The fraternity had done several thousand hours of work, he said, in- cluding bartending and cleaning up for a Capitol Arts Center dance and handing out donation cards for the American Heart Association. The fraternity had a successful homecoming at Yankee Doodles and held a spring formal in Cincinnati, Ohio. The group had a Wine and Roses party in November, where ev- eryone dressed in 19205 styles and the pledges picked up the actives' dates. The SAES also tried to have more interaction with other fraternities on campus, Gott said. That was also a goal for DELTA TAU DELTA, which finally" par- ticipated in Pikes Peak Week, Presi- dent David Whitesides, a senior from Henderson, said. The 45-member fraternity tried to get back in touch with its alumni, Whitesides said. Some of the alumni were helping the Delts to buy their house. Many alumni came back for Homecoming this year, he added. Delta Tau Delta was named one of the top-zo chapters in the nation in its Southern Division Conference in Ra- leigh, N.C., during February, White- sides said. It continued to be successful academically, winning more awards than any other fraternity at the aca- demic banquet in the fall. In community service, the Delts walked for the March of Dimes in April, worked 130 hours for the Mus- cular Dystrophy Telethon and started a soccer tournament to raise money for the Junior Soccer Club in Bowling Green. Members also adopted a park, which they were to keep clean and free of trash, Whitesides said. The chapter had a fairly successful water polo team, Whitesides said, but overall, intramural sports was a weak- ness for the fraternity. "We just don't take football seri- ously at all.

At each party, at least four members were designated as sober and were responsible for card- ing partiers and driving intoxicated people home. Besides trying to crack down on alcohol abuse, KAPPA APLHA experienced an increase in member- ship and placed more emphasis on community involvement. The KAs were 72 members strong and participated in a road block for Muscular Dystrophy of Bowling Green. Gailor said more than 800 hours of community service were con- tributed to the Potter Christian Home for orphans, a Halloween patrol for local children and the Fountain Square, which the group decorated for Christmas. Nationally, the KAS won the Am- men Award, an award given annually to the top KA chapters nationwide. One of the factors in winning the award was attrributed to the diversity of the KA membership, Gailor said. "We're involved and diverse," he said. "When you have people from every background, it's interesting. Somehow we all get along." However, one problem the KAS had was the "inability to move," Gai- lor said. The KAs tried to buy a house but were unable to because neighbor- hood residents did not want fraternity members as neighbors. While the KAS worked on trying to move, LAMBDA CHI ALPHA worked on becoming a clos- er fraternity. "Our biggest change as a whole was that the fraternity is much closer in- stead of various cliques," Stephens said. "fCliquesj are being eliminated. Now it's getting back to fewer mem- bers instead of a mass rush." With about 55 members, the fra- ternity kidnapped Big Red and WBKO-TV sportscaster Gene Burke and weatherman Reg Taylor. The fra- ternity also collected about 35,600 worth of canned goods for the Salva- tion Army. About 2,20o hours were spent on community service projects, Stephens said. Before Christmas, the fraternity threw a party for the Boys' Club. On campus, the Lambda Chis be- came more active in intramurals and working with other organizations. "We're trying to change our repu- tation," Stephens said. "The 1970s greeks are totally different from the 19805 greeks. We're more career-0ri- ented." "It's a fun atmosphere," he said.

CHI OMEGA officially opened its house on Normal Drive in August. It housed six actives. "The house and the vacant lot beside it are ours," Drue Belcher, social and civic chairman, said. "The housing corporation has been taking up money from initiates for to years. And now we have it. "A long-term goal is to tear it down and build a bigger house to house 40 members. With the lot we can expand. It's our property," Belcher, a Wood- burn freshman, said. The chapter got into the swing of things by holding the first Chi O Classic Golf Tournament. Sorority members raised 835,000 for the Boys' Club. "We're going to make it an annual thing," President Stacey Willett, a ju- nior from Murray, said. The tourna- ment replaced November Nonsense, a song and dance show, as the sorority's main fund-raiser. With the golf tournament, "We raised a lot more money," Willet said. In concessions alone, the group raised .2300 for the Humane Society. Chi Omega had 85 members and made better than its rush quota with 41 pledges. "Our morale is up," Willett said. "The new initiates are really ex- cited," she said. "They,ve brought a newness to the sorority and helped people get excited again." The pledge-active dance was the social event of the year, Willet said. In the fall the pledges began secretly planning and raising money to put on a dance for the actives. Other social functions included a fall informal dance, a hayride, a Homecoming tea for alumni, a Christmas dance, a spring formal and a senior send-off. Willet said the strength of the so- rority lay in its involvement in many campus activities. "Every member is involved in at least two other clubs. It's kind of a requirement," she said. "We're well- rounded on campus and in the com- munity. While Chi Omega didn't have a national philanthropy, sorority mem- bers grew attached to the children of the Potter Christian Orphanage. "They came to Gilbert Hall, and we all dressed up and played games for a Halloween party," Belcher said. The Easter service project was quickly changed to an egg hunt with the orphanage children. For service projects, the Chi Os sang carols at Fern Terrace Nursing Home and in the Jaycees' Parade, where they marched while dressed as owls. Members also sold tickets and served refreshments as roller-skating carhops for the Capital Arts Dance, participated in a community bowl-a- thon, and prepared food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas. For the fifth consecutive year, AL- PHA KAPPA ALPHA won rec- ognition as the Western sorority with the highest percentage of volunteer participation, President Kim Ca- meron, a Louisville senior, said. The 18 members participated in Hands Across Western and the WBKO Health Fair at Greenwood Mall. In addition, the group took the Girls' Club trick-or-treating and pre- pared food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year brought AKA some younger members. The sophomores were important additions to the chap- ter because "they'll be able to carry on," Cameron said. "In a black greek organization, you have to take into consideration the lower numbers," she said. "It's so im- portant to maintain enough members to keep the chapter operating. "It's a big job even for 18 people," she said. Four new members were initiated, meeting the chapter's goals. However, the sorority's main goal was to stay "in the black" for the year, Cameron said. Budgeting the dona- tions to charities took priority. Besides award-winning volunteer work, the AKAs raised about 5250 to give to the Muscular Dystrophy Asso- ciation Oerry's Kidsj, National Asso- ciation for the Advancement of Col- ored People, United Negro College Fund, Urban League and their na- tional philanthropy, the Cleveland Job Corps Center. The main fund-raising event of the year, the 16th Annual Miss Black Western Pageant, raised 3200 for an academic scholarship which was pre- sented to the winner. "The academic scholarship is a ser- vice we provide for the winner," in addition to the traditional crown, tro- phy and roses, Cameron said. The division winners and the first and second runners-up received tro- phies also. Plaques were awarded to Miss Congeniality and to Miss Perse- verance-the woman who sold the most money in ads. Thirteen women participated in the pageant, the most in five years, Cameron said. They began practicing a month and a half before the night of the pageant. Contestants were judged on talent, swimwear and formal wear, along with their ability to communicate during a question and answer period. Talent was the focus when the AKAS got together. Homecoming activities were high- lighted by a step show with dance routines and singing. They practiced synchronization in their foot-tapping, Cameron said. "You have to see it," she said. "You can't leave college without seeing a step show." I -Story by Rebecca Fullen Sisters of the AKA perform a step show in front of DUC as part of Homecoming events.

At the same time, a fraternity, Phi Delta Theta, went through an experimental process called redevelopment. A recolonization occurred when a greek chapter's national office gave alumni status to active chapter mem- bers. This process, which made all of the actives inactive, was commonly known as "cleaning house." Sigma Kappa's problem was declin- ing membership.

The dance was held at the Bowling Green Country Club. I 68 Greeks tional office sent chapter consultant Lisa Paternofstro, a Sigma Kappa from Louisiana State University, to recolonize the Epsilon Zeta Chapter at Western. "I was very, very happy from the results," Paternofstro said. She started publicizing the sorority and then recruited as many members as she could take. Through posters and "Go Sigma Kappa" buttons that greeks and inde- pendents wore around campus, Pater- nofstro recruited 80 women who want- ed to join the "new" sorority. This new group had to follow the guidelines of the recolonization. This meant that they could have no con- nection with the previously active members. They changed the chapter mascot from a rabbit to a penguin. "We had to form our own identi- ty," said Missie Hubbuch, a Nash- ville, Tenn., sophomore, who was in- stalled as president of the sorority after the pledges were initiated. Of the 80 women who were rushed in the fall, 41 were initiated in the spring semester. Although they lost almost half of the pledge class due to grades or disinterest, Sigma Kappa was still larger than some sororities. Both l-iubbuch and Paternofstro credited Western's greek system for the sorority's success. "We've gotten a lot of support from fraternities and sororities," Hub- buch said. Paternofstro added that "some- times you meet a lot of resistance" in a chapter recolonization. Another factor that helped Sigma Kappa was the members' reasons for joining. I-Iubbuch said that most of them joined because the new sorority gave them a chance to join a sorority in which they could form its reputa- tion with "no name put on their backsf' The other greek organization that "r""'v:q,'2v1Illl'1" ':"'T'2T.sQ?'tff2'-f if "' 1583. V -'L I "sw v,g Af ,-f"-A gave students a chance to start over again was Phi Delta Theta, which went about it in a different way. Instead of the Phi Delt national office "cleaning house," it sent a chap- ter consultant to Western to recruit new members, but without getting rid of the original seven actives. The consultant gave the alumni control of the Kentucky Eta Chapter. He and some of the alumni con- ducted interviews with the seven to determine their involvement in the new group. One member was suspend- ed for what they called, Hconduct un- becoming of a Phi." Afterwards, the consultant inter- viewed Phi Delt recruits who the alumni had recommended. A majority of the 25 recruits inter- viewed were from Western's football team. As a result, most of the new pledge class was made up of football players. Another difference of the Phi Delt redevelopment from the Sigma Kappa recolonization was the time the mem- bers spent pledging. The Phi Delts had a pledgeship of eight weeks com- pared to the Sigma Kappa's pledge- ship of almost six months. "It went fine," Bowling Green sen- ior Adam Lindsey, the Phi Delt presi- dent for the spring semester, said. " flt wentj according to the planf, The problem the Phi Delts had was that out of the six actives who were allowed to stay, only one remained with the group. Some of the older members felt sep- arated from the new Phi Delts, though. "I felt alienated," Louisville junior Mark Hobbs said. Hobbs was one of the Phi Delt actives who left after the new group took charge. "I didnlt feel like I fitted in," he said. Lovett "They are Phi Delt all the way," Lindsey said of the ones who left. "It doesn't matter whether theylre old or new. It's what's inside." The Sigma Kappa recolonization also had a few problems with the ac- tives who were made alumni. A letter to the editor in the College Heights Herald from Hopkinsville senior Kim Zeigler and Belton junior Penny Be- liles said that they felt "slighted." Despite the problems with the older members, the new greek or- ganizations continued to prosper with their new traditions.

The Bowling Green Diabetes Foundation received about 82,000 from the Kappa Sigs. The fraternity also sponsored a blood drive in West Hall Cellar. In greek activities, the Kappa Sigs won Pikes Peak Week for the second consecutive year. They also placed sec- ond in Kappa Delta Washboard and tied for first place with the swimmers for the Midnite Mania spirit award. The SIGMA CHI fraternity also had many achievements. The face of the fraternity changed over the past year, President jim Robinson, a senior from Knoxville, Tenn., said. "I'd say we've become a more diver- sified group. We used to be mostly athletes,', he said. With that diversity came a year of firsts for the Sigma Chis. Having dars. About 2,000 calendars were dis- tributed on campus. of accompli hment their first spring pledge class in over four years, winning the Homecoming parade float contest, participating in the KD Washboard and hosting a basketball tournament were among the fraternity's accomplishments. The Sigma Chis had 45 active members and had a successful spring rush which recruited four pledges, Robinson said. "We're also trying to win more national awards," he said. The fraternity tried something dif- ferent with its annual Sigma Chi Derby. "We wanted to keep the money in Bowling Green this year," Robinson said. About 32,000 was donated to the Potter Christian School's Boy Scouts troop. The week-long derby was the fra- ternity's biggest event, with all sorori- ties and some fraternities participat- ing. The Sigma Chis had one weakness which they tried to overcome. Within the fraternity, pledge grades were the main problem, Robinson said. "We have more study hours for the pledges, and classes are being taken more seri0usly,', he said. "Plus we've allowed more time for themselves." As far as the rest of the Sigma Chis were concerned, "The consistency of performance doesn't fluctuate that much," Robinson said. "We try to stay on a high level of achievement in athletics and grades." PI KAPPA ALPHA fraternity tried to shed its "Animal House" im- age by putting more emphasis on grades, President Sean McGuinness said. Getting rid of the party image was "for the better of our chapterf, McGuinness, a Fort Campbell senior, said. "If you ask any Pike, they'll say we're a lot calmer now." The second annual Pikes Peak Week and homecoming were the Pikes' more successful functions, he said. Homecoming for the Pikes had its highest attendance in five years. About 250 alumni were present. Besides social functions, the Pikes concentrated their efforts on helping decrease their national debt and get- ting their house on Kentucky Street switched to the Pikes' alumni associ- ation. Because the Pikes became more in- volved in community service, they to- taled up almost 300 service hours, McGuinness said. The hours were spent with the Bowling Green Boys' Club and for cerebral palsy. Another area emphasized was grades. With 35 active members and seven pledges, the Pikes decided to increase their pledge grade require- ments from a 2.0 grade point average to a 2.25. McGuinness said, 'fThis is more of a long-term goal for the fraternity."

IQ in Garrett Conference Center Ballroom, I5 candidates from different sororities drew cheers and applause from their supporting greeks. "Bart White fmaster of ceremo- nies, said it was the best thing the greeks have done because it brought us all together," said Ruth Ann l-Iosse, a Brentwood, Tenn., freshman and Derby Darling winner. White was a communications and theater assistant professor. The candidates for Derby Darling were rated in three categories: sports- wear, swimsuit and evening gown. The winner earned points that were added to her sorority's overall total. "They Qsororitiesl collect points for the different events," Clay Moody, Sigma Chi treasurer and a Franklin senior, said. "We judge them on spirit throughout Derby Days." Sororities earned points by winning the Derby Darling Contest, having good attendance at the kick-off dance and mixers, competing in Events Day and showing spirit in other events. "Events Day is sort of like pledge olympics," Sigma Chi President Jim 172 Greeks Robinson, a Knoxville, Tenn., senior, said. "They're just silly games."

'Tm glad that they decided to help the Boy Scouts," said Victor Guyton, scout master and house par- ent at the home. "Any donation made to any other organization would have been greatly appreciated also, though." The Derby not only helped bring together Western's greeks but also made the greek system more promi- nent on campus and in the Bowling Green community, Robinson said. "The Derby generates a lot of pub- licity for the greeks because of the size of the event," he said. "Plus it gives us an opportunity to improve our rela- tionship with not only sororities, but other fraternities too." 4 All greeks were invited to many of the events throughout the Derby.

The women were dancing in front of DUC. -fofm Dunham . he sisters of Phi Mu and Delta Sigma Theta sorori- ties gave an extra effort to achieve chapter involve- ment on campus to get their names circulated more. Members of PHI MU concentrat- ed their enthusiasm on Greek Week. "That's a big thing for us this year," Cindy Strine, a Glen Ellyn, Ill., senior, said. "We are giving an all-out effort for our first-place goal. We're also going to show a unique kind of spirit, rather than just having a bunch of girls standing around and cheer- ing." ' The Phi Mus felt that taking first place in Greek Week was a reasonable goal, having taken third place three years ago and second place two years ago. "It's our turn to win it now," Strine said. Last year was a reconstruction peri- od for 47 members of the sorority. "We lost a lot of manpower to gradu- ation," jennifer Daum, a Newburg, Ind., senior, said. "But we were able to pick up a lot of pledges during open rush." Most of the year was spent analyz- Delta Sigma Theta af- FRONT ROW: Jeri Cosby, Pamela Kirkwood BACK ROW: Carla Lawson l f boost for in olvement Qing the chapter's strengths and weak- nesses, Strine said. J The group set goals academically as lwell as socially. A scholarship program iwas organized as an incentive to in- crease grade point averages. A buddy lsystem and study hours were also set. l "But what we really plan to do is lget closer to the sisters that we have,', Strine said. "We have more of a vari- ety of people and personalities." The organization was successful lwith its initial attempt at the Men of Western Calendar, the group's prima- ry fund-raiser for the year. The calen- dar raised 581,400 for the sorority's na- tional philanthropy, Project H.O.P.E. The Phi Mus also volunteered as phone operators for the March of Dimes Mother's March, Strine said. To become more involved with the Bowling Green community, the sisters of Phi Mu adopted a local park in which they -dedicated several hours a week toward maintenance. "We are responsible for the square down- townf' Strine said. They also worked with the Special Olympics, hosting a disco dance at the end of the day for the participants. In s addition, the group had a Halloween Serenade where members took chil- dren of the Big Brothers and Big Sis- ters program trick-or-treating, Daum said. Not all of the activities of the Phi Mu sorority were service-oriented. The sorority sisters were able to show their party spirit at several mixers, one of which was a six-way mixer with other greeks. They also had winter and spring formals, as well as their annual Crush Dance. The II members of DELTA SIGMA THETA tried to spread their name by becoming more in- volved with the greek system at West- ern. Jeri Cosby, a junior from Louis- ville, said that the black sororities were not as strong a part in the greek sys- tem as they used to be, although she didn't know the reason why. "That's why we are trying to be- come more established in Panhellen- ic," she said. The sorority had a Panhellenic re- presentative who attended each of the meetings. They also adopted a soror- ity which they worked with to get themselves more established, Cosby said. They dedicated most of their time to community service projects. Mem- bers helped with the Wendy's 1oK Classic, Special Olympics, the walk-a- thon and various activities associated with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program. Hilda Harville, a senior from Sel- ma, Ala., and organization president, said that they did not have any one particular philanthropy which they worked for. Rather, they found a local program to support each year. Last year, they worked for the Parker Bennett Community Center. "We set up a tutoring program on Tuesdays and Thursdays, where we worked with the children on home- work or crafts," Cosby said. The sorority had a presentation in accordance with the city police con- cerning the "Say No to Drugs" pro- gram. A film was shown about drugs and drug prevention, followed by a discussion. On the social side, the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta had several dances at the West Hall Cellar and the J.C. Pavilion. Their biggest event was at the pa- vilion, when they hosted the Mr. Crimson Cream contest. A candidate was chosen from each of the black fraternities, and students voted for the winner. "The honor was awarded to the most well-rounded individual, aca- demically as well as physically and per- sonally," Harville said. To raise money, the Deltas hosted a fashion show in the Garrett Confer- ence Center Ballroom. They went to the mall shops and got different stores to sign releases for articles of clothing in return for publicity. The students who modeled the clothes had their hair styled by a local salon. " 'Apologyi was the theme," Cosby said, "and the models pantomined ac- tion skits oriented around the emo- tions of love, fear, happiness, and con- trol." Academically, the group developed a GPA incentive in which a gift certi- ficate was awarded for the highest grades.

The Sig Eps and the Kappa Alpha Psis had a mixer at the J.C. Pavilion in Lampkin Park in the fall, Sig Ep President Ted Whitlock, a Bowling Green junior, said. "It went over real well,n he said. "We plan to have another." The mixer fit in well with one of the goals of Kappa Alpha Psi--to have more relations with white frater- nities, said Julius Key, a Detroit, Mich., sophomore and secretary of the 16-member fraternity. "We've been trying to give the campus a better outlook on our chap- ter," Key said. "We want to let people know what we are, who we are and what we're doing." The Sig Eps tried to change atti- tudes within their 35-member chapter this year, Whitlock said. "We went through a rough period last year. The attitude was very lax," he said. "No one took things seriously and morale was down. Now, there's more pride." At the Phi Delt house, there were more members. The fraternity gained 25 men in a redevelopment suggested by alumni after membership shrank to seven. "It was a last gallant effort to save the fraternity-and it went over," President Adam Lindsey, a Bowling Green senior, said. "We're on the rise." With an emphasis on rush, the fra- ternity increased its membership to 30, Lindsey said. "We had a lot of participation and people who knew lots of people on campus," he said. The Phi Delts also had several mix- ers with sororities and a party with the Lambda Chis in February. Also in February, they were in- volved in the Bowl for Kids, giving the money raised to Big Brothersf Big Sis- ters. They also had several car washes. Community service was important to the Sig Eps as well, Whitlock said. The fraternity put up flyers for Yan- kee Doodles, splitting the profits tak- en in at the door on certain nights. The Sig Eps also delivered care packages on finals week. In addition, they tried to build brotherhood with "more highly structured social activi- ties for members," Whitlock said. For example, the fraternity had several re- treats and did house repairs. The biggest weakness of the chap- ter now was a lack of members, Whit- lock said. But he hoped the chapter would continue to grow. "We need to work on getting our manpower up," he said. The Kappa Alpha Psis made a new commitment to community service, Key said, trying to do one project a month. The group delivered a turkey din- ner to a family on Thanksgiving, he said, and in March, they used a por- tion of the money they raised at the Cellar to buy food baskets for needy families in Bowling Green. Socially, Kappa Alpha Psi had sev- eral dances at the Pavilion, including a second annual Homecoming party. Chapter members had a Valentines Day party with the group's alumni. They also started a little sisters pro- gram, Key said. Eleven girls were now participating. Although Key said that his chapter needed to work on getting more mem- bers, he was proud of what they ac- complished this year. "Even though the chapter is small," he said, "we've used good plan- ning to get programs and activities on the road. We're more organized than ever before."

Two key words for any successful sorority were friendship and sisterhood, but for two of Western's sororities, the phrase "our new house" ranked a close third. After zo years of saving, Alpha Omicron Pi and Chi Omega initiated their first sorority houses Oct. 4, which was Parents' Day at Western. After living in Gilbert Hall togeth- er, the sororities once again made themselves neighbors when they bought the homes located south of the campus on Normal Drive. "Having a house is a dream come true," Chi O President Stacey Willet, a Murray junior, said. "It doesn't limit us to activities like the dorm did." In only two semesters, the houses filled gaps that the residence hall floor left open. "It gives us a place to hold commit- tee meetings and chapter dinners, or just lie out in the sun or study for finals," Willett said. Red ribbons marked the dedication of the AOPis' new home, and like Willett, AOPi President Kim Wel- born, a Madisonville senior, agreed that having a house served some defi- nite purposes. For formal meetings, a large chap- ter room in the basement enabled the whole group to meet officially on a weekly basis. However, informal activities that the AOPis enjoyed weren't excluded. The house provided a place for sister- hood dinners and candlelights, or ceremonies marking a lavalier, pinning or engagement of a sister. At times the house was simply a place to go after classes. For both sororities, an important aspect of having a house was to edu- cate and initiate their 1986 pledge class. "Being a part of the first pledge class installed in the new house started our pledgeship on a positive note and helped us to get excited about being a Chi O," Owensboro freshman Leigh Knight said. "It gave Chi O pledges more op- portunities and a place to get togeth- er," Jodie Rawls, a freshman from Newburgh, Ind., said. The initiation ceremonies also seemed more meaningful to the sisters in their new houses. "The fact that we AOPi pledges were in our own house made me feel that much more a part of the chap- ter," Nashville, Tenn., freshman Te- resa Summers said. "I feel lucky to be one of the first initiated into AOPi's new house." Like many fraternities at Western, living space was limited in the two houses. The two sororities used a sys- tem similar to that of the fraternities in determining who would live there. The president, house manager, other major officers and seniors with the highest grade point averages occu- house pied the houses. Welborn approved of the AOPis' system because "it enables all the top officers to be together, and that's beneficial because they need to work closely." The houses were chosen through the university and the city of Bowling Green. "We wanted to be close to campus and give the girls the best location possible," alumna and Hous- ing Corporation President Roiann Ridley said. "It's a lot closer to campus. People tend to stop by more often," Welborn said. With two of Western's sororities established on Normal Drive, the housing corporation of both sororities had the same long-term goal. "It is our hope that all the available homes on that particular block could become Western's sorority row in the future," Ridley said.I -Story by Tammy Owens -Photos by Heather Stone 1. ilxxxx SQ 'i-5 y ,f .ff 1 .l , ,R .7 1-Nw V 'waz f ...Us " 7 f A ,, 'ififffa-. , ffl 'I :5fQ3J::'gN Q V.

Brotherhood insurance, that is. This type was free and considered to be the major strength of three fra- ternities-Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Gamma Rho and Sigma Nu. "You can always depend on your brother, and you love each other," said Rick Owens, a Louisville sopho- more and president of the A Phi As. Franklin junior Chuck Neely, president of the AGRS, believed that the brotherhood between his fraterni- ty members was much stronger. And chapter support for the Sigma Nus was a great deal stronger, also, accord- ing to President Steve Hepfer, a ju- nior from Niagara Falls, N.Y. Although ALPHA PHI AL- PHA, with I3 brothers, was much smaller than the other two, its mem- bers believed this was to their advan- tage. The brothers had a closeness gained by being a small group. In order to raise money, the A Phi As basically had parties. They were able to buy equipment for more par- ties, but more importantly, they set aside money for the "MLK Awards." Owens explained that a black high school senior with the highest grade point average was awarded this money in Martin Luther King's memory. Along with the MLK Awards, the A Phi As had several community ser- vice projects during the year. Togeth- er with Alpha Omicron Pi, they rocked in a rock-a-thon for the Arthri- tis Foundation. They also had a party at the Boys Club for the children there. Drug Awareness Week was espe- cially popular with the fraternity. During each semester one week was chosen in which no alcohol or drugs were allowed. "I found it interesting because you're told you can't do some- thing," Owens said. A Phi A fraternity wanted to im- prove relations with other fraternities on campus. "We're trying to get more involved with Interfraternity Council and in- teract with whites," Owens said. ALPHA GAMMA RHO, with 49 brothers and four pledges, was proud of improving its service projects and charity this year. Members raised about 54,000 for the American Cancer Society. "We helped MDA fMuscular Dystrophy Associationj on a haunted house for a fund-raiser," Neely said. The group also helped clean up down- town Bowling Green. Donations from AGR were com- mon. "If we made 5300, we donate what we don't use at the end of the semester," Neely said. Visiting nursing homes and taking kids to the movies were also services provided by the AGRS, according to Neely. "Positive attitudes to create a better chapter as a whole" have strengthened the SIGMA NU fraternity, Hepfer said. Sigma Nu set high standards of achievement and planned to stick to them. The fraternity had 45 active broth- ers and II pledges in the spring. The members were kept busy with service projects. "We parked cars at the Ray Ste- vens concert and donated the money to a women's club in Bowling Green," Hepfer said. The Sigma Nus also had a head- start program in which they raised enough money to get a playground for the children. They were also devoted to academ- ics, "We were second in academics for all greeks," Hepfer said. In addition, intramurals played an important role for the brothers. They held the Powder Puff Flag-football Tournament, the 3-on-3 basketball tournament, and won the Alpha Del- ta Pi Flag-football Classic. They took first place in the Kentucky Bluegrass in Lexington, where they played con- tact flag-football.

"The fwaterj games were mass chaos," Bowling Green sophomore Billy Daniel said. "With all the cheer- ing and yelling, you couldn't hear the event chairman." A rule prohibiting cheering had been issued to keep the noise level down in the indoor Diddle Arena pool. The greeks protested the rule by shouting their individual cheers, mak- ing it difficult for any official to make a ruling. As a result, no awards or participa- tion points were awarded to any -Tim Broekema greeks, giving Greek Week a shaky start. The greeks put the previous night's activities behind them when they gathered Monday night for Spring Sing. With WBKO weatherman Reg Taylor as master of ceremonies, io organizations performed a variety of song and dance routines. Pi Kappa Alpha opened the show with a series of songs ranging from "Down in the Valley" to their home- made song, "Western Style." "We were just happy to be partici- pating. We hadn't done anything like this for a while," Pike member Mike Budniak, a Louisville junior, said. While the Pikes were happy to just participate, some groups drove to win bi . gLambda Chi Alpha showed this drive in their rendition of "Old Mc- Donald Goes to Paris." While one member sang a solo of, "I Love Paris," his brothers accompanied him on a piano, bass, trumpet and drums. To top that off, the brothers went on to perform the song in French. The Lambda Chis were awarded a standing ovation by the crowd, along with first place for the fraternity divi- sion. First place in the sorority division was awarded to the Chi Omegas for their musical trip through time. They performed songs ranging from the 19205 hit, "Has Anyone Seen My i Girl" to Lionel Richie's more contem- porary hit, "Dancin' on the Ceiling." The next day, the fraternities and sororities were given a chance to show their knowledge of Western in the Greek Feud. "It was fun, but it seems we didn't seem to have enough answers," Sigma Alpha Epsilon member Chuck New- ton, a Lexington junior, said about the game, which was played like the game show, "Family Feud." The Pikes and Alpha Omicron Pi won their divisions. As the day turned into night, an- other Greek Week activity got under way-Movie Night at Downing Uni- versity Center.

Another event on Tuesday, and the only one to carry into Wednesday, was a blood drive that gave everyone a chance to participate. "It's been great. We've had a fairly good number of independents turn out," Louisville senior Melissa Scott said. "Our goal has been 330 pints a day, and after the first day, we've got- ten 341 fpintsjf' The various organizations had dif- ferent attitudes toward the blood drive. "We are trying to meet our 30 per- cent quota, but we're not fining to do it," SAE Richard Fister, a Lexington freshman, said. Fining was done by fraternities and sororities to penalize those members not meeting certain re- quirements. "You either donate or find some- one to donate for you," Fister said. "Last year we gave 170 percent, and this year we're trying to top that number," Alpha Gamma Rho mem- ber Steve Tays, a Princeton sopho- more, said. "Everybody gets up for Greek Week and a lot of organizations show itf' another AGR, Bowling Green sen- ior Scott Smith, said. "I was really disappointed. I couldn't give because of low blood iron," Chi O member Caroline Miller, a Louisville senior, said. "If I didn't -Heather Stone find someone to donate for me, we QChi Osj wouldn't get any points . . . I found some really nice guy who said he would donate for me." The top donators were the AGRS with 183 percent participation and the Kappa Delta sorority with 119 per- cent. By Wednesday evening, the blood drive had brought in 726 pints of blood, 205 pints more than the pre- vious year. On Thursday the greeks headed for Smith Stadium for the day's main event, the bed race. "We got I4 beds racing this year . . . The winners will be the bed with the overall best times," Jeffersontown sophomore David Crouch, the event co-chairman, said. "It was kind of scary riding that thing," Carey Lancaster, a Gracey ju- nior, said. "I had my hands clasped in a combination of aerodynamics and prayer." Another bed jockey, Bowling Green freshman Michelle McGown, said, "I was lying down as low as I could to keep from falling out and to make the bed as aerodynamic as possi- ble." If falling out didn't appear to be a problem, the general construction of the beds did. The KD entry broke an axle before they could finish the race, and the Lambda Chi entry lost some at-rr IW 'F'-- 'X-4' of its wheels, forcing the brothers to push the bed semi-wheeled down the remainder of the track. When all the dust had settled, the AGRS and the Alpha Delta Pis proved to be the top bed-racers in the fraternity and sorority divisions. On Friday the tug-of-war proved to be similar to the other events because each group had a different technique to winning. "We've got almost a whole new team this year. There are only a couple of guys back from last year," Sigma Chi member and Russellville senior Clay Wren said. "The team put in about two weeks training." "We didn't have a team until an hour ago," Bowling Green junior Kyle Strother said. Strother was on Phi Delta Theta's team, which upset the Sigma Chis in the first round of play. Some teams, however, got what they had worked for. "We practiced for at least one hour a day for the past two weeks, and it wasn't just pulling," ADPi Kate Er- win, a Mayfield freshman, said. "We practiced hole digging and when to rock and when to lock up." The ADPis' work paid off when they captured the sorority division in the tug-of-war, while the Kappa Al- phas won, the fraternity's division. On the following Monday night, Greek Week activities closed with the Awards Convocation. Special recognition was given to the fraternities and sororities by the area philanthropic representatives. The greeks were recognized for the outstanding service they had per- formed for area causes. Scott Taylor, director of student organizations and activities, was pre- sented a plaque for his I0 years of service to the greek system. Under the Panhellenic awards, KD and Chi O tied for most-improved. KD also won the award for outstand- ing community service and Susan Stockton, a Morganfield senior and former KD president, won the award for Outstanding Greek Woman. In the fraternity division, Lambda Chi won the Outstanding Serivice Award while the Phi Delts were awarded the most-improved citation. SAE Matt Fones, a Franklin senior, won the Outstanding Greek Man Award, and Delta Tau Delta won the Reed Morgan Award for its campus involvement. Greek Week awards were presented last. Chi O and AGR earned spirit awards in their divisions. The KDS and Chi Os captured the most partici- pation points in the sorority division, while the AGRS were the top-ranked fraternity.

Greg Lovett 1 87 Greek Week time of hange hether the organiza- tions were already well- established or being re- built from the ground up, three sororities made academics a top priority this year. ALPHA OMICRON PI's 87 members worked hard to raise their grade point average. "Our grades aren't as high as we would like for them to be, but they have improved over the last year," President Kim Welborn, a Madison- ville senior, said. The group had more than grades to think about, though. They dedicated their newly bought house in October. "We've had to do some things dif- ferently to try to incorporate the house since the house is new," Wel- born said. "We tried to have more activities in the house and food after meetings so people would stay and talk and visit." The organization was large, so members were able to participate in more activities on campus and in the community. The AOPis participated in the Girl Scouts sleep-in and worked at the fin- ish line of the Wendy's Classic 1oK in the fall. They also co-sponsored a greek picnic with Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity in the spring. AOPi devoted much effort to rais- ing money for its philanthropy, the Arthritis Foundation. The sorority held a rock-a-thon in which its mem- bers rocked in rocking chairs for 24 hours and collected money. The fall pledges also trick-or-treated for dona- tions to the charity. Along with helping others, the AOPis devoted time to furthering their own chapter. "We had a very successful initi- ation dance in January and a pledge active dance last fall," Welborn said. KAPPA DELTA sorority worked hard at bringing the group's grades up to a higher standard. "Our grades were our weakness up until this year," President jennifer Hendrickson, a Morganfield junior, said. Their efforts resulted in the organi- zation having the second-highest grade point average among the greeks for the fall semester. KD got involved in several commu- nity activities. At Christmas time, the organization hung lights on Fountain Square and collected food and clothes for a needy family in Bowling Green. "For our Christmas party, you had to give food or some type of item at the door," Hendrickson said. "That was your ticket to get into the party." The group also babysat once a month throughout the year for the local Child Protection Agency and held Halloween, Christmas and Val- entine parties for the children. The sorority held the annual KD Washboard to raise money for its local charity, the Child Protection Agency. The Shamrock Project, which in- volved doing yardwork for donations, took place in March to make money for the organization's national philan- thropy, the Prevention of Child Abuse. The KDs started a special fund to send representatives from the 92- member group to the national conven- tion to be held this year in New Or- leans, La.

The national chapter planned to pay for the president's trip. However, in order to send anyone else, the trea- surer of the local chapter had to set aside money for the purpose. "Our treasurer deposits 520 into a special fund every time she makes a deposit," Hendrickson said. "We hope to have S500 by July." The KDs also renovated their house to keep up with the growing needs of the organization. In the sorority keg throwing competition, AOPis Patty Signorello, a Bowling Green soph- omore, and Lynne Uingeman, a Louisville sen- ior, hurl a pony keg. The competition was part of Pike's Peak Week. "We just remodeled the kitchen," Hendrickson said. "We re-did the foyer and re-papered, and we hope to have a new chapter room because we're getting too big for the chapter room in the house. We have to have meetings in DUC." SIGMA KAPPA sorority worked toward setting a new tradition of academic standards for the organi- zation. Due to low membership from pre- vious years, the national chapter got involved. It recruited new members and sent in a chapter consultant to aid in the restructuring process. "Last year, there were only seven members, so the national chapter came in and made them alumni," President Missie Hubbuch, a Nashville, Tenn., sophomore, said. "They sent in a team to do rush and a pledge trainer." The 41 new members were not al- lowed to see any of the sorority's old files. As a result, they relied on the guidance of the pledge trainer. "We're so new, the uncertainty of what we're supposed to do is a weak- ness," Hubbuch said. Despite the uncertainty of the so- rority's first year, the group did man- age to keep quality up. It also had a number of pledges who worked to- gether on such projects as selling lolli- pops during Sigma Kappa's Week of Giving. This project raised money for gerontology, the local philanthropy. "We don't want to always be con- sidered the new girls," Hubbuch said. "We're making a name for ourselves." The sorority made that name by placing third in the KD Washboard and by winning the Spirit Award with Kappa Sigma fraternity at Midnight Mania. "We had to do our best, socially and academically," Hubbuch said, "because what we are this year is what everyone will think of us as from now on."

"We have the strongest schedule ever, but we hope we have the strong- est team ever," the coach said. "I hope the tough competition pays dividends for the Sun Belt Tournament at the end." That tough schedule was headed by Tennessee, a perennial top-zo team, Louisville, the University of Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, South- east Missouri and the strongest Sun Belt Conference field the Toppers had faced in their three years of con- ference play, Daniel said. The promising outlook was fueled by the return of young but exper- ienced players. These players had been members of a successful team the pre- vious season-one that came on strong near the end to finish third in the Sun Belt race. After getting off to a slow start, Western's team began to fulfill some of the potential Daniel had seen in the squad at the beginning of the season. Western took a 3-6 record into the Topper Tournament at Diddle Are- na, and the team came out with an even 8-8 mark and a second-place fin- ish. "It was our best serving and our best hitting of the season," senior Tamlyn Nelson said. "We pulled all of it together after all that work." But the wins only teased the Top- pers. After a road loss to Murray State on Sept. 30, Western went into a month-long skid that started in Mo- bile, Ala., at the Mid-Season Sun Belt Conference Tournament. The Toppers lost five of six in Mo- bile, earning the bottom seed for the Sun Belt Tournament in mid-Novem- ber. Then, in Tampa, Fla., at the Cen- tral Florida Invitational, Western was swept in four matches. On Oct. 2I at Austin Peay, itllfiel Toppers lost the 12th of their last I4 matches. In all, Western lost I2 of I5 in Cctober-14 of which were on the road. A frustrated Daniel watched his team's record slide to 1 1-22 on Nov. 4 against Tennessee Tech. "We played with this team, we l IQ4 S ports At the Western Coca-Cola Classic in Diddle Arena, Western's middle-blocker, Tamlyn Nel- son, a senior from Louisville, eyes the ball after it passes her. Western played Butler University in the tournament. net profit played well,,' he said. "Skill isn't the problem. We're better than they are, but we lost." Things finally began to brighten for Western when the team traveled to New Orleans and won two of four matches to place third. "I think a lot of it is attitude," sophomore Dedre Nelson said. "We finally decided to win and not just play with teams. We made that extra push to win the games." Western went into the Sun Belt Conference Tournament in Rich- mond, Va., as the bottom seed. The Toppers lost in the first round of the double elimination tournament to Alabama-Birmingham. The greatly-improved conference slate pounded Western's team, and the Toppers could not match the suc- cess they had enjoyed the year before. The team slid to a sixth-place finish in the conference with a 13-26 record. But the Toppers did get a taste of victory when Jacksonville sent West- ern home with a win in the losers' bracket. "We gave both UAB and Jackson- ville a good match," Daniel said. "We just couldn't put up the points when we needed them. "But then there's not too many teams that can end their season with a win," he said. After the season had ended, honors provided a bright spot as two Toppers earned Sun Belt Conference laurels. Louisville sophomore Tamlyn Nelson was named All-SBC second-team, while Teresa Harrison, a senior from French Lick, Incl., was given all-con- ference honorable mention.l -Story by Eric Woehler -Photos by Tim Broekema .Q- i E I l 1 l Front row: Dedre Nelson, Mary Beth Dornacher, Cindy Edlin, Tammi jo Driver, Donna Inghram, linger Mant, Stephanie Cowden, Suzanne Wilson.

The fastest feet belonged to 34- year-old Nick Rose, a former cross country All-American at Western. He ran the slick 6.2-mile course in 28:29. Billed as one of the IOP-25 road races in the nation, the race brought elite runners to Bowling Green. "Without question, the 1986 Wendy's Classic is the best race I have ever raced in," said Rose, a five-time winner. "The set-up, the professional attitude, the fun, and all the special race features are not matched any- 1 96 5 ports ' .. if nnsss 7 - .. ,ce I -Robert Pope oses for ose where else." Rose looked like a tired-but-relent- less prize fighter. The gray streaks in his hair showed his age, his first-place finish showed his experience. "Rose is one of those runners . . . fl-Ie isj such a seasoned veteran," said Dennis Reinke, a world-class runner and guest commentator for WBKO- TV. "This is his turf. I-le's probably a little more experienced than the other runners." For the first five miles, the race was a chase among Rose, Keith Brantly C1985 winnerj, and Martin Brewer, a 30-year-old runner from Louisville. The chase ended in the final quar- ter-mile when Rose pulled away from M 1 1 + ' 1 ...mn U' ' 'I Ms!! V 'D' pn ' the pack. Applause followed him as he ran the final stretch, breaking the tape I at 28:29 and matching Brantly's win- ning time in 1985. Brewer finished second at 28:32 and Brantly finished third at 28:36. "It's getting tougher and tougher to win here," said Rose, a 1977 West- ern graduate. "I had to push it from the word go. "Had the race been anywhere else except for Bowling Green, it would be doubtful if I'd won," he said. "I was running with fright for the last two miles. I had played all my cards. It was really nice to see the finish line." Sabrina Dornhoefer, the women's champion, agreed it was nice to win. This was her first IOK race. She ran in 33:17, outdistancing Sue Schrofder, 21, of Ann Arbor, Mich., by 41 sec- onds. "I didn't know what to expect in my first IOK. I had the feel of what I was doing after the first couple of miles," said Dornhoefer, a 22-year-old runner from Columbia, Mo. Jenni Peters, the 1985 winner, didn't finish the race. She stumbled and dropped out in the first few miles. "She went down hard," Dorn- hoefer said. "I was nervous because she might have gotten up and come up behind me." The Classic was the first race in America to test runners for drug use. 4- I Q '7 E E, X X gi -n-n ,fa- . a a ,f 07131 s if g " v yi N553 a-...W ag: --:flaw-M .-v-Mia: -fww11wm...f,.,.,wf,.,.W-ia . in G? 1--L .vi s- ,X 6 if Q Y za X f x np- 39-1 f T 'Vs . e Urine tests were done on the first three finishers in the men's and wom- en's races, and on two randomly select- ed runners who placed from fourth to 25th.

Wendy's restaurant set up 4,000 meals-a chicken sandwich, potato chips, a Coke and a piece of fruit, for the runners. At the Greenwood Executive Inn, the "Health Fitness Expo '86" was presented. The open house exhibited fitness products from national and lo- -Tim Broekema 'al manufacturers. Some of the high- lights included free refreshments, door prize drawings and give-aways, continuous entertainment, videos from the 1985 race and fitness demon- strations. Race director Dave Mason said the race was a success despite the rain.

Pulling his own WEIGHT 198 Sports n a normal day, Lee Towne rolled out of bed around 7:30 a.m. and started off with a hearty breakfast of vitamin supplements and a protein drink. He spent his morning and early afternoon in senior-level finance and accounting classes. Then, about 2:30 he headed home, ate a small lunch and an hour later was off to the Body Exchange or the House of Fitness to lift weights. After two hours of lifting, Towne went back home to study and eat some supper-usually a piece of chicken or a sandwich. For a nightcap, Towne ran a mile, ate some more vitamin supplements and did too sit-ups. "It's a pretty busy day," the senior finance major said. 'Tm just as strict about not missing workouts as any other athlete is about missing practices." 561 ig His schedule wasn't always so struc- tured, of course. "Sometimes I'll splurge and eat some cafeteria food." Towne started lifting weights in his freshman year at Madisonville High School to make his 5'7", 126-pound frame bigger for football season. He entered his first body-building meet a year later and was hooked. He got into several meets in high school and in 1982 got his first big win as he took third place at the Mr. Dixie Teenage Southern United States in Chattanooga. At the Mr. Southern Kentucky meet in October at the Capitol Arts Center, Towne placed fourth in his division-junior short. Since Towne came to Western, he has entered fewer matches because of his classwork but has continued to work out and reached his highest weight last summer at 198 lbs. "To go from 126 to 198 in five years is pretty quick," Towne said. That's a lot of different clothes sizes and a lot of money to spend on clothes a short period of time." Towne was back down to 172 lbs. which he said was about his ideal weight for competitions. "I try to stay pretty symmetrical, but my thighs seem to grow quicker and stay pretty lean though." In an eight-week preparation peri- od for a meet, Towne changed his diet to less fats and more carbohydrates and proteins. He said he didn,t neces- sarily avoid calories, just refined sugars and fats. Towne said his practice schedule did not interfere with his classwork. "I think it helps my grades because it keeps me from partying. I'll miss workouts for tests-school always comes first-but, that's about the only thing I'll miss a workout for." Towne said his goal was to become a business consultant but that he's 4 I 4 I sl.. ll ' ...- never going to totally give up body- ibuilding. "I really don't know that I want to compete forever, but I never want to be in less shape than I am now. You go to the beach and you see people trying to hold a book over their stom- ach. I don't want to ever have to do that. I always want to be proud of what I got."

In addition, the women's team came into its own and gained a new measure of respect. The harriers, or cross country run- ners, started their season with a first- place finish in the Southern Indiana Invitational. Tariku Bulto, a 26-year-old fresh- man from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, led the men's team with a record-breaking performance when he finished in first place. Kevin Banks, a junior from Durbin, South Africa, was second. The Toppers again placed first in their next race, the WKU Hall of Fame Invitational. Bulto, Banks and Victor Ngubeni, a freshman from Natal, South Africa, ran together for four miles before Bulto pulled away to win. Ngubeni and Banks followed close behind to finish second and third respectively. "I wanted to break the course re- cord, but it was very wet," Bulto said. Banks felt proud that runners from his home country had represented the team so well.

Bulto also suffered his first loss as a collegiate runner to Danny Hender- son, who ran unattached for Athletics West. Despite los- ing, Coach Long was pleased that his team held up reasonably well against such tough competi- tion. "This was the first time Tariku and the team were challenged, and they answered a lot of questions for me today," Long said. Two weeks later, another question was answered for Long at the Vander- bilt Invitational. Bernard O'Sullivan, a junior from Ireland, finished seventh for the team in his best race as a collegiate cross country runner. The finish enabled him to make the trip to the Sun Belt cross country meet. "Bernard finally realized that cross country was not as hard as he thought. This race is a good confi- dence builder for him,,' Long said. Although the Toppers were not expected to keep their title as Sun Belt conference champs, the team trounced favorite South Florida to win its fifth title in as many years. Bulto again led the team by captur- ing the individual title and setting a new course record in the process. The rest of the WKU attack was lead by Ngubeni and Banks, who fin- ished fourth and fifth respectively, while fellow South African Philip Ryan, a senior, earned his third All- Conference honor by finishing sixth. O'Sullivan rounded out the top five by placing 11th for the team., In the Western Kentucky University Hall of Fame Run, Louisville sophomore Barry White competes for position with his opponents.

Next season might be a different story, Holmes said, since the Hilltop- pers graduated four "great seniors from the squad." Forwards Mecit Koydemir and Rick Bergen and de- fenders Chris Lindsay and Robert Dickinson will never again wear a Topper uniform. Dickinson said it was "a lot of fun playing with such talented playersf' "We had IO other players who were just as good as I was," he said. "We didn't have any weaknesses." Koydemir ended his Hilltopper ca- reer as the conference's leading scorer. The forward scored I9 goals and add- ed six assists for a season total of 44 points. Koydemir was a two-year member of the Sun Belt's All-Tournament Team. He also became Western's all- time leading scorer, tallying 40 goals and I2 assists. "We've got to find somebody who can score zo goals for next season," Holmes said. "I don't know how - either by getting a transfer or a new player." Lindsay, an Evansville, Ind., native, played in 72 games at Western. He "specializes in defending the opposi- tionis biggest scoring threatf' Holmes said. Dickinson, a Lexington product, played in 78 games, starting 64 of those, a school mark. "We were really pleased with our season. Everybody had fun," Dickin- son said. "It was fun going out and winning that many games and doing well in the Sun Belt Tournament." Bergen scored IO goals during his career. An Oldham County High School graduate, Bergen was a mem- ber of the Western Invitational All- Tourney team his junior year. "It's not easy trying to replace four great seniors," Holmes said. "They all had great seasons. They were our lead- ers." Although he was losing many top players, Holmes was confident for next season. "With us having a great year - setting many records - we will be upbeatf, Dickinson said he would miss the game of soccer.

When the Toppers were beaten on the second week of the season by a little-known Livingston, Ala., squad and then trounced the following Sat- urday by Louisville, a cloud seemed to be resting over what had begun as a Npromisingv season. To add to the gloom, with a .5oo season on the line going into the final game, the Hilltoppers blew the 11- point advantage they owned over Tennessee-Chattanooga and lost by four to close the year. "It was a hard way to end the sea- son," fourth-year coach Dave Roberts said. "Things didn't go as well as we expected them to," said junior quar- terback jeff Cesarone. "We wanted it four average, to be better than .5oo. That was one of our goals and when we didn't reach it, it really hurt." But what seemed to be overlooked was the fact that Western did face six opponents who were in the Division I- Topper quarterback jeff Cesarone, a junior from Geneva, Ill., tries to elude the grasp of Tennessee Stateys Charles Buchanan.

"We've learned a lot this season," Roberts said. "We're a much-im- proved team over the team we had two years ago. But we still have a way to go." Sophomore running back Vincel Anthony agreed that the season was a "disappointment" as far as the won- loss record was concerned, "But it broadened our outlook for the fu- ture," he said. Western went into the season with an optimistic outlook. After all, the Toppers had experience on their side with 36 upperclassmen returning. The offense was blessed with an extremely potent air attack, due large- ly to the able arm of Cesarone and the sure hands of senior wide reciever Keith Paskert. On the other side of the line, junior linebacker Neil Fatkin said the de- fense was uI0 times better" than the 1985 unit. The Toppers' first game did noth- ing to dispel that optimism as West- ern thumped Gardner-Webb, 35-13. Webb led Western in the first quarter during which neither team looked sharp. But Western soon turned the game into a route, scor- 5 in 207 Football aaa he f .es 'L Goal cont. ing 35 unanswered points.

Gardner-Webb added a touch- down in the second half, but it was too little and too late to beat the Toppers. On the following Saturday a virtu- ally unknown Livingston squad out- scrapped its way to a 23-21 win over Western. In the second quarter, tailback Pe- dro Bacon took a hand-off at the one- yard line and raced the remaining 99 to put the Toppers ahead, 14-7. The Tigers tied it at I4 on a 50- yard pass, and then the opposition took a six-point lead on a 67-yard punt return that set up a two-yard touch- down plunge by PJ. Cromer. WKU's Kelvin Nedd thought he had tied the game on the ensuing kick- off as he surged down the vacant field toward the endzone. However, 70 yards behind him the game had been halted due to a holding penalty on the Toppers. The score stayed 20-14 at halftime. Senior Billy Haynes' blocked punt and recovery in the endzone gave Western its final lead of the day. On the first play of the final quar- ter, Cesarone fumbled, giving Living- ston possession of the ball. The Tigers then added another three points, pro- viding the winning margin, 23-21. "We started out with some small schools and didn't play with the inten- sity we sould have," Cesarone said. "This set the tone for the whole sea- son, and we lost some games we really should have won."

Paskett snared three of those passes for 98 yards. One 44-yard reception came on the second play from scrimmage for the Toppers. It was the gem of an 80- yard, nine-play drive that was capped with Robert Coates catching a touch- down pass. "I told them the second play of the game was either going to be a TD or an interception. It wasn't a TD, but it got us going," said a jubilant Roberts. The Colonels tied it in the second quarter but then never could equal the Tops again. After a week off, the Tops went south to play another Division I-AA power, Tennessee State. The Tigers found the best defense for Western's Cesarone was to not let him get a pass off. And on IO occa- sions, Tennessee State found the seam in Western's line and sacked the ju- nior quarterback t0 pave the way to a 25-3 win. Western evened its record at 3-3-1 the next week with a 34-20 win over Austin Peay. It was, surprisingly, the running game that keyed the win. Arnold led the ground attack with 21 carries for 169 yards. On the open- ing kickoff of the second half, he took the ball QI yards for a touchdown. The passing game was quiet as Ce- sarone was held to 48 yards. I-le passed only nine completions until the Top- pers' final drive when he scorched the Governors for 92 yards on five of sev- en passes!

Both teams ended their seasons finishing fifth in the Sun Belt Conference Tournaments. "What we do each year is we kind of gear our season around the Sun Belt Tournament," men's Coach Jeff True said. "So fifth place is not as good as we thought we would do, es- pecially based on our record." The men finished the regular sea- son ro-4 and missed fourth place by two points in the Sun Belt Tourna- ment. Alabama-Birmingham QUABQ fin- ished the tournament fourth with 42 points, and Western trailed with 40. Sun Belt champion South Florida led the field of eight with 66 points. "We had beaten UAB during the year, but yet they finished ahead of us in the tournament," the sixth-year coach said. "We may have, a little bit, underes- timated the strength of the conference going into fthe tournamentjf' he added. Despite finishing fifth in the tour- nament, True said the team and the individual players fared well in the season and the tournament. No. 1 player Scott Vowels, a Nash- ville, Tenn., junior, served his way to an 11-8 final record. At the No. 2 position, Matt Fones, a Franklin sen- ior, finished 8-9 with a 9-IO record overall. joining the team during the spring semester, freshman Ajay Deo, from India, played at four positions and finished 9-5. TENNIS "We had what I felt like was an excellent year . . . and no doubt Ajay Deo was part of the reason for that," True said. "I-Ie'd come all the way from India, and basically had no time to get ad- justed, but he had a really good year." The Sun Belt Tournament also had its brighter moments for Western players. "In the conference, maybe, fwe werej a little sub-par in terms of the third-place finish in the singles, Lutz at No. 4 and Bruton at No. 5. While the men were using their experience to win matches, the women were scrapping their way to an aver- age, but winning, season.

Lutz and Burton also netted a -Mike Kiernan On Western's courts, Kim Hewlett, a senior from Waverly, Ohio, returns a backhand against a Tennessee State University player to beat her opponent 2-o. Western went on to shutout TSU, 9-o. not being used as an excuse for not bettering their 8-7 record. The loss of the No. 2 player, Eliza- bethtown sophomore Terri Stanfield, to a foot injury left a gap in the team's structure. Each player, except the No. 1 position, was forced to move up one space to fill Stanfield's place. "Everybody went out and played as hard as they could every time," Rose said. "But when you're playing one notch higher than you'd like to . . . I don't know what it could have been if we'd have had fStanfieldJ. "All in all I guess you'd just say it was just an average year. We didn't do anything real good or real bad." Some of the individual efforts throughout the season proved to be better than average, however. At the No. 4 position, Teresa Lisch, a senior from Springfield, Ohio, pounded out a 13-5 regular sea- son record, while Bowling Green sen- ior Lee Anne Murray, at No. 3, and Terre Haute, Ind., junior julie Ross, at Nos. 5 and 6, grabbed 1 1-7 records. First position player Kim Hewlett, a senior from Waverly, Ohio, finished at 8-IO. "Most everybody had a winning record for the spring-more than the 8-7 that the team was," Rose said. "It's just that we didn't put them together in some of the times." Western finished one spot higher than the previous year in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, coming in at number five this year. Tournament play was the last collegiate action for five of the team's seven members: sen- iors Hewlett, Murray, Lisch, Mary Birch of Olney, Ill., and Gayle Sutton of jasper, Ind. "In view of Terri fStanfield'sj in- jury, we had about as good a year as we could have," Rose said. "It was a rewarding kind of year to say that we did as well as we did in spite of the adversity."

The Lady Toppers had enjoyed five straight years of 20-win seasons, three consecu- tive trips to the NCAA Tournament, two trips to the Final Four and a 127- 37 record since Paul Sanderford be- came head coach in 1982. "I think he has done a real great job," Charlene james, a senior from Dublin, Ga., said. "He put together all we had.', Continuing its tradition, Western battled what Sanderford called its toughest schedule since he had been with the Lady Toppers and came out with a 24-9 record and a trip to the National Collegiate Athletic Associ- ation Tournament in 1987. Tough defensive pressure against Vicki .Witherspoon of UNCC results in a blocking foul for Westem's Debbie O'Connell, a Ridge- wood, N.J., sophomore. O'Connell had three points and four assists. -Mike Kiernan "The season went pretty well con- sidering all we had to overcome," Lau- ra Ggles, a Scottsville senior and a forward on the team, said. "just about everybody on the team was injured at one time or another. Plus, there was a lot of rebuilding." Sanderford felt that the team had surpassed expectations. "You know, some people didn't ex- pect us to win 20 games this year," the coach said. "We had an excellent sea- son." The Lady Toppers opened the sea- son by hosting its own tournament- the Bowling Green Bank Invitational. Clemette Haskins, a Bowling Green senior, started her All-Ameri- can season with 23 points and II as- sists in Western's 86-76 first round win over Arkansas in the local tourna- ment. Whitesburg sophomore Brigette Combs paced the Lady Toppers in the championship game win over tourney- favorite james Madison, 54-53, with I5 points and II rebounds. In the next two games, the senior scored 41 points and dished off 28 assists, and Combs pulled away 23 re- bounds in consecutive wins over Mid- dle Tennessee and Morehead State. Then Western began to slide. Three straight losses against Van- derbilt, Southern Illinois and Iowa left the Lady Toppers with a 4-3 record. A win over Ohio pushed Western to 5-3 as 1986 ended. Western opened the new year in Hawaii at the Rainbow Wahine Invi- tational. Tandreia Green, a freshman from Washington, D.C., called the trip the highlight of the season. In the opening round of the tour- nament, the Lady Toppers hit the century mark for the first time against Portland State as Haskins scored 20 points to lead Western 101-67. The Lady Toppers then quickly disposed of the home team, Hawaii, 75-67. In the championship game, West- ern lost for the second time against Vanderbilt, 78-75. The Lady Toppers bounced back in Diddle Arena as Green scored 16 points and jerked eight rebounds to lead the Lady Toppers' win over ninth-ranked Penn State, 75-69. After the game, Sanderford said he was "beginning to wonder whether we were a IOP-20 team," but he was en- thused over his team's performance. Two more wins by the Lady Top- pers proved Sanderford's point as Western whipped Dayton, 78-52, and Utah, 77-53. "I don't think we're peaking,', San- derford said after the three straight wins, "but I do think we're getting better." However, his improving team wasn't enough to pull the upset against top-ranked Texas. The 18th- ranked Lady Longhorns nailed a very cold Western team, 63-41. Western lost much more than just the game against Texas. Haskins suf- fered a severe quadricep-tendon!

Without their star point guard, the Lady Toppers clawed their way back from an 18-point deficit against Illi- nois State to beat the Lady Redbirds in Diddle Arena, 63-60. "We did all right when we realized Clemette Haskins was not going to come off the bench for us," Sander- ford said. Melinda Carlson, a senior center from Bowling Green, picked up the slack for her injured teammate, scor- ing 26-her career high-to lead the Lady Toppers past Tennessee Tech, 94-63- Western grabbed a win in its first Sun Belt game of the season with a 68- 53 triumph over South Florida in Ian- uary. Two blowouts in a IOW-Q9-63 over Tennessee State and 1o7-57 over hopes mm. Eastern Kentucky-raised Western's record to 15-5. "Our team is playing with a lot of confidence right now," Sanderford said. That confidence was humbled on the Lady Toppers' short road trip east as Western dropped a pair of confer- ence games to Old Dominion, 73-68, and Virginia Commonwealth, 81-73. Following his team's overtime loss to the Lady Rams, Sanderford said, "We're a tired basketball team. We've played so much we've just got to get our legs under us and go to work . . . I wish I had the answers." Western began to find those an- swers, reeling off eight straight wins to end the regular season. An 88-56 win at Diddle over Ala- bama-Birmingham evened the league record at 2-2. In only her second game back from a knee injury, Haskins be- gan to show signs of her past form with II assists and I2 points. Western went south to face Mem- phis State and nailed the Lady Tigers, 83-75. Haskins was responsible for 16 points. The Lady Toppers went into their final homestand of the season and gave the Diddle Arena faithfuls some- thing to cheer about with four wins. "It's nice to be at home for this stretch run," Sanderford said. Cincinnatti was the first victim, 94- 56, as Haskins continued her come- back with 18 points. She proved herself again two days later against Louisville. The senior poured in 30 points-the highest total in her career-to lead Western past the Lady Cardinals, 98-53. Haskins' fine game gave Sander- ford a break of sorts. "I didn't have to work hard at all,', Sanderford said. "I didn't perspire all night." Another no-sweat win by the Lady Toppers over conference-foe North Carolina Charlotte upped Western to 20-7. The final home game of the season gave the Lady Toppers and their fans something to cry about-not from the outcome, a 75-62 win over South Ala- bama, but because it was the last career home game for six Lady Toppers. "It was a combination of all my emotions," Haskins said. "I was hap- py, sad, everything. There were a thousand thingswrunning through my head." Haskins didn't allow her emotions to cloud her play. She scored 26 points and dished off five assists-giving her 7oo for her career total. Traci Patton, a junior from Nash- ville, Tenn., also played a fine game? In the game against the University of Utah, Scottsville senior Laura Ogles and Nashville, Tenn., junior Traci Patton go after a rebound. Westem won the game 77-53. -james Bonbuck She scored I5 points and had I5 re- bounds before fouling out with 1:23 remaining in the contest. "I wanted this one for the seniors," Patton said. One senior in particular. "Before the game, I told Melinda QCarlsonQ that whatever I had, it was hers," Patton said. Carlson had missed the last two games because of torn ligaments in her left leg. "Until she gets off her cast, that's the way it's gonna be," Patton said. "But she had better get it off quick because I can't keep this up." Patton did keep it up, though, scor- ing 29 points and grabbing 23 re- bounds in two straight wins that end- ed the regular season-82-61 over Murray State and 70-67 over West Virginia. Ogles said team camaraderie made the season an easier one. "Something a lot of people don't realize-we are a very close team," she said. "We're all good friends. That makes the year go a lot better no mat- ter whether you win or lose." The Lady Toppers spent the first weekend of spring break on the East Coast in Norfolk, Va., for the Sun Belt Tournament. The team beat UNC Charlotte in the first round, 80-47, but lost to South Alabama in the semifinals, 80- 75- As poetic justice, the Lady Toppers spent the last weekend of spring break in Los Angeles. After bypassing the first round of the NCAA Tourna- ment, Western faced Southern Cal, and lost, 81-69, to end its season with a record of 24-9. "We had it at the end of the sea- son, but then we had some injuries," Carlson said. "When that happened, we wanted to, but we just didn't be- lieve we could go back and do it again."

L 1, 1 bv-ad . 63: 56'-5' -'-1 lt th last time out it was the year for West ern basketball to return to prominence after a murky first three years in the Sun Belt Conference. The team was compared to the 1971 group of jim McDaniels, Clarence Glover and oth- ers who made it to the Final Four. Murray Arnold and his wife, Ann Conn, arrived on the scene from the NBA's Chicago Bulls, quelling West- ern fans' only fear about the new sea- son-who would be the coach? Former coach Clem Haskins, who moved on to Minnesota, left a legacy of talent for Arnold to guide. The only player lost from the 2 3-8 1985-86 team was clutch-scorer Billy Gordon. This year's team had experience and size-seniors Kannard Johnson Q6-97 from Cincinnati, Ohio, Tellis Frank Q6-Ioj from Gary, Ind., Cla- rence Martin Q6-87 from Alexander City, Ala., Ray Swogger Q6-37 from 2 1 8 Sports Buffalo, N.Y., and Bryan Asberry Q6- 7j from Gary, Ind. The men had re- turned from a highly successful season during 1985-86. NBC's megavolt announcer, Al McGuire, said in his preseason publi- cation, "I-looplah '87," that the Hill- toppers had a baseline "that's ready for the NBA." Owensboro junior James McNary, a boisterous guard with an innate tal- ent for finding people open in a game and a quick smile for referees, had only to pick which of the Toppers' towers to throw to. Sophomore Brett McNeal from Minneapolis, Minn., and freshman Roland Shelton from Decatur, Ga., sprang the big men by using the NCAA's new I9,9,, three- point basket. The beginning of the season rein- forced the high expectations. Western opened by dismissing Notre Dame, 80-63, Texas Christian, 96-90, and Memphis State, 68-67, to advance to the finals of the Coca-Cola preseason National Invitational Tour- nament QNITJ in New York's Madi- son Square Garden. The I-Iilltoppers led top-ranked Nevada-Las Vegas by 21 points in the finals. But the Rebels buried IO of 27 three-pointers in the second half, mak- ing Western a 96-95 double-overtime victim on national television. "We were disappointed that we lost," Arnold said. "But we were proud of the kids for playing so hard and representing Western Kentucky so well." Despite the heart-breaking loss, Western seemed to pick up steam from its success in the NIT. The Toppers buried Kentucky State at home and then breezed through the fifth-annual Wendy's Classic with a 98-67 thrashing of Mer- cer and an 82-52 victory over South- ern California QUSCJ. It marked only the second time Western had won its home tourna- ment. The USC win was Arnold's 3ooth career victory. Johnson was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament, marking the third time he had made the all- tournament team. "It was very special," johnson said. "It was my last Wendy's, so it was my last chance to make all-tournament." The Hilltoppers were 6-1 and had moved to eighth on the Associated Press Top-zo list when they went into a big home game against Louisville. The Cardinals, who had lost three key players from their national cham- pionship team from the year before, attacked Western's inside game. Johnson's I5 rebounds and McNeal's I4 points couldn't salvage what would have been the biggest Westernwin in years.

"We were disappointed, but we were not at all discouraged," Arnold said. "It was another great chapter in this rivalry." Because of a schedule quirk, West- ern played Central Michigan QCMUQ-who went on to the NCAA Tournament-the next night. It was perhaps Western's most mis- erable performance of the year. The Toppers threw wild passes, couldn't hit and seemed stunned from the loss to Louisville. CMU won 73-65. After winning the Sun Belt Conference Toumament, Big Red and Westem center Bry- an Asberry celebrate. Asberry was a Gary, Ind., senior recreation major. Western nose-dived out of the Top T zo, and the Toppers seemed to have K lost some of the confidence gained in Y the NIT. A However, the team was able to re- cover against Armstrong State, 68-48, i and Samford, 94-57. The Toppers spent Christmas in Honolulu, Hawaii. Western pounded Hawaii-Pacific, 89-74, and then squeaked a 71-70 win over Chaminade to win the championship of the West- ern Airlines Chaminade Classic Tour- nament. Asberry was named to the all-tour- nament team in Hawaii. He scored zo points and grabbed zo rebounds in the tournament. The senior was proud of making his first all-tournament team. "It felt great, it being my last year and all," Asberry said. just when it seemed Western was returning to consistent play, theTop-NV -Mike Kieman r h .pers barely survived Butler, 74-73, and lost a 68-66 decision at Eastern Ken- tucky. But the Eastern game was like a brief nightmare when Western ex- ploded into its regular-season Sun Belt schedule, blasting conference rival Alabama-Birmingham 85-67 in Did- dle Arena. "We played very well and hard for 40 minutes," Arnold said. "It's a mat- ter of concentration, intensity and ef- fort." The win began a string of strong performances by johnson, who poured in 22 points while grabbing I4 re- bounds. Five of the Toppers' next six games were on the road, and Western won four of those contests. The team beat Virginia Commonwealth twice, 79-70 and 90-71. The win in Richmond was the Toppers' first in 38 years in Vir- ginia. Western also pounded South Flor- ida, 61-46, and South Alabama, 68-60. Jacksonville delivered the Toppers their first conference loss, 80-71, and Louisiana State set Western back, 67- 62, on national television. "It was a classic game," Arnold said. "Both teams played extremely hard. It was a tough one to lose." Western played some of the best ball it had played all season during the conference season. Johnson pulled down about I0 rebounds and scored I5 points a game. Frank poured in points and McNeal made jump-shots at will. The Tops returned to Diddle Are- na, and looked ready to take the regu- lar-season Sun Belt title in lopsided wins over South Florida, North Caro- lina-Charlotte and Old Dominion. Western survived a 74-71 overtime scare at UNCC and swept its series with Old Dominion at Norfolk, Va.

South Alabama then visited Did- dle Arena for what was one of the most exciting wins for the Toppers all year. Western slammed II dunks in the 85-70 win. Johnson had five. That set the stage for perhaps the biggest win in Western history-87- 74 over Jacksonville in a packed Did- dle Arena to secure the school's first regular-season Sun Belt Champion- ship in its five years in the conference. After the win, the Toppers cut down the nets in the arena. "It's a great feeling," said Frank, who scored a career-high 27 points in the game. "I can say it was me, the Swoggers, the Kannards, the Clarence Martins and the Bryan Asberrys who came in at a time when Western had lost some of its tradition and put some tradition back into the program," Frank said.

Things were looking good for the Sun Belt Tournament, which was to be played in Diddle Arena, until Western dropped an 86-73 loss to surging University of Alabama Bir- mingham. The game was an omen for what was to come in the tournament. The Toppers would receive their first dose of bad news when McNary came down with a virus and didn't practice. McNary, the men's record-holder for the most assists in a career c4409 and a season fzozj, saw limited action in the tournament. He played only I3 minutes in the tournament final against UAB, though he said he was well enough to play. Later he was kicked off the team on March I9 for an apparent personality conflict with Arnold. Western drew Old Dominion in the Sun Belt's first round. ODU led much of the game and ran a spread offense, making the Top- pers do a lot of running on defense. Western had legs enough to beat UNCC the next night, but the 99-95 win came after two overtimes. Late in the second half, Western's inside play- ers seemed to wear down. "When I ran the ball down court, I looked up and all I saw was guards," McNeal said. McNeal managed to reserve the Toppers a date with UAB in the championship with a career-high and tournament-record 34 points, most of which came in the second half. But this time, UAB would cut down the nets in Diddle Arena. The Blazers' combination of Tracy Foster and james Ponder combined for 34 points, with Foster running up 23 points. The Blazers got zo of 23 free throws as Western hit io of 14. Arnold said he was happy with the Toppers' regular season champion- ship. "Hey, we had played 35 games in loo days," he said, "and while the automatic bid finto the NCAA tour- namentj is nice, I think it's of greater significance that we did it over a peri- od of 35 games in loo days." Western finished at 28-8, a record strong enough for the tenth seed in the NCAA's East Regional at Syra- cuse, N.Y. With McNary still seeing limited action, Western beat West Virginia 64-62 in the first round of the tourna- ment on Johnson's last-second score on an inbound pass from Frank. Asberry, who had shaved his head in honor of the tournament, played perhaps the two best games of his ca- reer in the NCAA. He came off the bench to score 38 points and grabbed I4 rebounds against West Virginia and Syracuse. The Toppers lost 104-86 to the Orangemen, who went on to lose the NCAA championship game against Indiana. Syracuse hit 71 percent from the field in the second half to finish at 65 percent for the game. "When you hit 71 percent, you're supposed to win," Johnson said. Down by a wide margin late in the game, Arnold employed a desperate 'Q strategy of fouling Syracuse's worst foul shooter immediately after the ball was put into play. In the final three minutes of the game, the Orangemen hit II of 22 free throws on II Western fouls. Shelton picked up seven of the fouls before he was asked to take a seat. Arnold and the team agreed that Western could have gone farther than the second round of the NCAA, but they said their season was no small accomplishment. "We were zo games over 5oo," Ar- nold said. "We made it to the finals of the NIT, we won the Wendy's and the Chaminade tournaments, we had a great conference season, and we got to go to the second round of the NCAA. "But the thing I'll remember most about this team is the way they all improved as players by the end of the year. For people like Kannard and Tellis, it could be vital. For others, it can certainly be very useful. 'Tm really proud of our team."

'nv 0 l 3,10 Court motion ith only a few hours of sleep after a snowy road trip and a hard day's prac- tice, Coach Murray Arnold still beamed with enthusiasm when he talked about basketball. After 30 years of basketball coaching behind him, Arnold still saw it as a fun sport to play, practice and watch. He had coached football and base- ball, but basketball was his true love. "It is the only team sport where a player's individual skills can show through in every area,', he said. Arnold played basketball from his high school days until his sophomore year in college. Then in 1957, he be- gan his coaching career at DeMatha High School in Maryland, where he grew up. mg-gy Before going up against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, Arnold leads the team in prayer. The game, which was played in South Bend, Ind., was Westem's first of the season. rl-.1- With a healthy lead and less than io minutes to go in the second half, Arnold gives instruc- tions to the defense in the game against Notre Dame. Western went on to win, 80-63. 2 24 .Sporty The next zo years, Arnold had winning teams at every school he coached. He gave the "Midas Touch" to two high schools and four universi- ties, and served as an assistant coach to the Chicago Bulls, a professional team. Then came the move to Western in April 1986. The strong basketball tra- dition established by Coach BA. Did- dle in the early years of the program drew Arnold to Western. A huge painting of Diddle dominated one of the walls in Arnold's office. Arnold's wife, Ann Conn, was from Kentucky, so the couple already had roots in the state. The Arnolds also lived in the area when he coached the University of Tennessee-Chattan- ooga. Coaching the Chicago Bulls was "something I'll always cherish. I don't regret the move to Western at all," Arnold said. Former coach Clem Haskins made the transition for him as easy as possi- ble, he said. "It was a smooth transition," Ar- nold said. "Haskins recruited well." Working with a good team made the switch easier, he added. "The similarities between coaching pro and college ball are more impor- tant than the differences," Arnold said. The major similarities were good defense and rebounding, and people who loved to play the game, he said. As many Big Red fans would tes- tify, Arnold's first season was out- standing in every area. The season be- gan when the Toppers made it to the final game of the National Invita- tional Tournament, losing in double overtime to the number-one team in the country, the University of Ne- vada-Las Vegas. Next, the Toppers won the Wendy's Classic for the second time since Western switched from the Ohio Valley Conference to the Sun Belt Conference in May 1982. "The Sun Belt is bigger and tough- er," Arnold said. "It fthe switchj was a major step in basketball for West- ern.', There were some low points in the season, but they were few and far be- tween. "Losing to fthe University ofj 1.1 11 Louisville was a disappointmentf' Ar- nold said, "but it made us a better team." Western lost the game by two points, 60-58. The new three-point-shot ruling gave a player three points for any shot made 19 feet 9 inches or farther from the goal. This caused some trouble for Western. "It cost us three games since we're an inside-oriented team," Arnold said. Arnold wasn't the only force be- hind the team. Besides Associate Coach Bobby Bowman and assistants Hank Harris and Robbie Laing, Ar- nold had a fourth assistant - his wife. For I4 years Mrs. Arnold had kept the O.E.R. Qoffensive efficiency rat- ingj for every team her husband coached. These records werenlt re- quirements of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, but they were invaluable to Coach Arnold's game plans. Mrs. Arnold noted the number of points by possession on a yellow legal pad in a shorthand language only a coach or statistician would under- stand. Arnold took pride in his wife being "the best 0.E.R. recorder around. She fits more information on a page than any recorder I've seen," he said. Arnold was more than a coach for the team. He and his wife were par- ents away from home. The players hung around Coach Arnold's family- room-style office to talk or do home- work. The Arnolds had breakfast with the team every morning and held reg- ular study sessions with the team. Though the couple had no children of their own, Mrs. Arnold said the team members made up for that. "These are our children," she said. "It's rewarding to see them growf' "The members of every team had been a part of our family for years," Coach Arnold said. They often saw former players Ar- nold had coached, Mrs. Arnold said. "We're visible so they can keep in touch with us,,' she said. Coach Arnold had a truly memora- ble first year at Western. It was the most successful year for any first-year coach in Western's basketball history. Win or lose, one of the most impor- tant aspects Arnold conveyed to his players was the attitude they should have toward their basketball accom- plishments. "One of the most beautiful words is champion," Arnold said. He remind- ed the players that no matter what the future held or what they did after college, they would always be champi- ons, and no one could take that away from them.

UK cheerleader Dale Baldwin was paralyzed Nov. 4 after landing on the back of his neck during a routine jump. Baldwin was attempting to jump from a mini-tramp when he tumbled off balance into a somersault at a UK exhibition basketball game in Louisville. "We're always concerned with safe- ty, but Baldwin's incident emphasized it," Bennie Beach, men's basketball and football cheerleading sponsor, said. "We've always been conscious of it." After Baldwin's accident, West- ern's squads had a conference to dis- cuss the rules for safety, Louisville freshman Pam Brown said. The dis- cussion focused on a review of the rules, especially those involving pyra- mids. Women's basketball cheerleading sponsor Scott Taylor "copied articles about the accident," jill Romer, a De- catur, Ill., freshman, said. "He told us that you can go too far. He still em- phasized safety, even though we only go two high fin pyramidsjf' Brown said she felt the squad should know its limit as to how high they could make a pile. "Some schools try to go beyond their limit," she said. "They've gone to the point where it's dangerous." The Sun Belt Conference outlawed backflips from the tops of pyramids and allowed cheerleaders to stack only two people high. At UK and the Uni- versity of Louisville, they were going four and four-and-a-half people high. Since Baldwin's accident, UK has banned the use of mini-tramps and the forming of pyramids more than two people high. "Everyone knows it Qcheerleadingj is dangerous," said cheerleading cap- tain David Whitesides, a Henderson senior. "Our girls were a little appre- hensive . . . scared. "You can understand that because they are the ones to get thrown around," he said. "It bothers me, but I have faith in my partner fWayne Krausjf' Romer said. "I really trust him." Safety measures taken by the squads included "spotting," or having the cheerleaders watch over one an- other, Beach said. "We also work on padded floors,', he said. For the previous nine years, West- '1- 226 Spam -Bob Bruck Preparing for Hands Across Western, Owensboro sophomore Beth Blandford paints Hendersonville senior David Whitesides' cheek as Paducah senior jennifer Williamson looks on. About 700 people fonned the line. l i I l l 1 i ern squads had not used mini-tramps like the one Baldwin was hurt on. The cheerleading squad didn't make many changes, Whitesides said, except getting "back into shape of spotting." Beach said the squad attended cheerleading camp, sponsored by the Universal Cheerleading Association, each summer. "The camp emphasizes safety," he said. "Our squad had only a couple of minor accidents this year." One accident involved Louisville sophomore Barbie Padgett, who twist- ed her foot. Besides safety measures, Beach said Western had a good year and good Q "Wins-... 5 t , M 1 -v- i i. -Tim Broekema ist?-YS squads. Since men's basketball had a great season 429-QQ, "We got to make a few trips . . . get a little exposure on televi- sion," Beach said. "That's always ex- citing." Chuck Newton, a Lexington junior and captain of the Lady Toppers' squad, said his squad still had a suc- cessful season despite the women's bas- ketball team's 24-9 record. "Our level of intensity was a little down this year. We got a little lacka- daisical," Newton said. But "if they're playing good, we're cheering good." Whitesides said his experienced squad still had its share of problems. "Everyone is an individual, having their own spirit," he said. "But we got a lot accomplished." Newton agreed. "Our unity has been very good," he said. "I came into this season being the only cheerleader with college experience, but we still achieved a lot of goals." One thing Beach said Western ac- complished was having more men ap- ply to cheer. "In my three years with this squad, we have seen more partici- pation from men each year," he said. "It's not really emphasized in the sec- ondary level" of schooling. "It's really a trickling-down effect," Newton said. "If changes happen in college, it will trickle down to high school and so on." Although safety was a concern for the cheerleaders, they kept in mind what their true purpose was. "It doesn't take difficult, tricky things to get the crowd going," Romer said. "It just takes school spirit." Cheerleaders tried to "raise the vol- ume" of cheering and have stronger intensity, Newton said. "Our cheerleaders are not so much acrobats as being responsible for keep- ing the crowd in the game." I -Story by Lynn Hoppes 5 Q 5 gion. nament.

I l I i Cru hed b the orange if there was something good to be said about Western's season, which ended with a 1o4-86 loss to Syracuse in the Carrier Dome, it came in the way the Toppers went down. The men, who finished 29-Q, played about as well as they could play before going down in defeat. They shot 53 percent from the field and had four players in double figures. Western never gave up, despite be- ing down by as much as 23 points with 1:14 left in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Tournament game. The Toppers reached the second round in the tourney by beating West Virginia 64-62 on Kannard Johnson's last second layup. As the official makes a call on Hilltopper Kurk Lee, a Baltimore, Md., sophomore, a West Virginia team member awaits the verdict. Westem beat the Mountaineers to advance to the second round against Syracuse. In the second round, Coach Mur- ray Arnold employed a desperate late- game strategy of fouling the Orange- men's worst free-throw shooter immediately after the ball came into play. The Toppers fouled II times in the final three minutes and were slapped with two technical fouls be- fore the ball came into play. "There comes a time in the game where the point margin and the time dictate to you that you must not let them have any of the clock," Arnold said. "I'd rather give their worst free- throw shooter two free throws with no time off the clock." During that stretch, Syracuse missed 1 1 of 22 free throws, but man- aged to rebound some of the misses. Western could make up only five points of the deficit. Western had to play the Orange- men in front of 19,990 of their home fans, but Syracuse wouldn't let them use that as an excuse. The New York team just plain beat Western. The Orangemen, who went on to lose the NCAA championship game against Indiana, shot a devastating 65 percent from the field and 71 percent on 20-28 shooting in the second half. "When a team shoots 71 percent, they're supposed to win," said john- son, who finished his career along with seniors Tellis Frank, Bryan As- berry, Ray Swogger and Clarence Martin. "I'm sad my career had to end that way," Frank said. "But it had to end some time, and Syracuse played a great game." Four Orangemen-Sherman Douglas, Rony Seikaly, Howard Triche and Greg Monroe-scored over 20 points. Douglas led all scorers with 27, and Seikaly poured in 23. Triche, who buried eight of I3 shots for 2I points, held Frank to 5-1 5 shooting from the field and I2 points, six below Frank's average. "I think the story of the game was the way Howard stopped Frank," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. Leading only 42-40 at halftime, the Orangemen opened the second half with a 15-6 run. Monroe, who scored 20 points in the game, led the run with seven points. "Things just began to fall into place for us," Monroe said. The Toppers found a hole in Syra- cuse's defense. Frank and Martin led a comeback that brought Western to within four points at 61-57 with 1 1:35 left in the game. But another 15-6 Orangemen run left the Tops down 76-63 at the 8:07 mark, and Western could come no closer than II points. Asberry led Western with a career- high 22 points off the bench. Brett McNeal pumped in zo points. I -Story by Joe Medley -Photos by James Borchuck Turned home earl he Lady Toppers sat in the locker room following their season-ending 81-69 loss to the Univeristy of Southern California QUSCQ in Los Angeles. Melinda Carlson got up from her chair among her I2 teammates and began walking towards the door. "We want to go home," the senior from Bowling Green said as she went out to meet the almost 40 fans who had gathered to console the defeated Lady Toppers. The women had been knocked out after being appointed to the second round in the NCAA's West Region- als. The loss ended a two-year string of Final Four appearances for West- ern. "When you are successful for so long, you are going to hit some down spots," Charlene james, a senior from Dublin, Ga., said. "I think that's what happened to us." "For us to make it three straight years in the Final Four would have almost been a miracle," Carlson said. For six seniors, the defeat marked the end to their careers. "It was weird because I never really thought what it was going to be like playing in my last game," Scottsville senior Laura Ogles said. "It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be." James said it took awhile for the realization to hit her that she would never be playing for Western again. "It ended so fast that it didn't real- ly bother me at first," james said. "But now you see the teams that are remain- ing. And I really did believe we had a chance to go back. It hurts a little." Western opened a 6-o lead in the game, but when Southern Cal's Cherie Nelson hit a layup at 15:58 in the first half to give her team a IO-8 lead, the Lady Toppers never evened the Women of Troy again. In the second half, Western drew to within one point with 11:38 left as James followed her own miss to make the score 56-55. With 3:41 remaining, Paula Pyers nailed a pair of free throws to give USC a 74-58 advantage-their big- gest of the game. "At halftime we went in and made some adjustments, and we came out and did some smart things," Coach Paul Sanderford said. "But when it was 56-55, we had two one-on-one op- portunities and missed both. "We just didn't make the baskets we needed to make." james led Western with 18 points in the game. Clemette I-Iaskins was limited to 1 1 points and no assists-the first time all season she had no assists in a game. Haskins, a Bowling Green senior, was troubled with foul problems through- out the day before finally fouling out at 3:41. "She didn't force any shots all day," Sanderford said. "And that's the mark of a great player. I just wish she would have looked for the shot moref, Scottsville freshman Susie Starks and Tandreia Green, a freshman from Washington, DC., added IO points in the game. Fouls troubled several Lady Top- pers as Haskins and Starks both fouled out and Green and Traci Pat- ton, a junior from Nashville, Tenn., ended the game with four. "Our game plan was to play phys- ical inside and get to their bench," Sanderford said. "We played defense with our hands way too much." It was USC's fouls that gave the Lady Toppers even more difficulties as Western hit only 36.8 percent of its free throws and missed the front end of four one-and-one tries. "If we make the free throws, we're in the ballgamef' Sanderford said. "But we just couldn't do it."

Before the 1986 season, the swim- mers had won the Midwest Region for seven straight years, and Powell had hopes for the new season after the Toppers beat Tennessee State Uni- versity CTSUQ in their first dual meet, 117-47. "I was pretty enthused," Powell said. Then problems set in. Bowling Green junior Dan Powell, who scored 80 points at the previous year's Mid- west meet, was red-shirted after being injured on an all-terrain vehicle. On top of that, coach Powell said he didn't think his swimmers were do- ing the work they needed to do in order to win. "I think too many guys felt it was going to come to them," he said. But Powell added that "for the most part, the guys did what was expected of them." After the dual meet against TSU, the Toppers headed for the Eastern Michigan Invitational. Despite finish- ing fourth out of five teams in the meet, some felt it was the team's best performance of the season. "It was my best meet in the year," john Brooks, a freshman from Brent- wood, Tenn., said. Brooks scored the season highs in three events. He swam the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:00.41, the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:10.64 and the 200-yard individual medley in 1155-43- The Eastern Michigan Invitational meet also provided an opportunity for other swimmers to give top perfor- mances in freestyle events. jim Trout, a freshman from Fort Wayne, Ind., peaked with a time of 4:48.47 in the 500-yard freestyle, along with a 16:33.95 in the 1650-yard freestyle. Jim Webber, an Indianapo- lis, Ind., freshman, swam 47.15 sec- onds in the 100-yard freestyle. Then the Toppers began having trouble with inconsistencies.

The team had a strong backstroke squad but had troubled freestylers. Plus, the men swam well in some com- petitions while not so well in others. Western broke an 1 1-year-old Did- dle Pool freestyle relay record with a time of 3:33.18 with almost two sec- onds to spare. After that feat, the Toppers went to the Tennessee Relays and placed fourth out of seven teams. Later they suffered a defeat to Louisville in a dual meet. After recovering from Louisville, the Toppers swam six more meets, ending their regular season. The team went to the Midwest Intercollegiate Championship in Chicago with a dual meet record of 7-2. Western went in to regain the championship it had lost the year be- fore for the first time in eight years. Even though they swam some of their best times of the season, the men were disappointed for the second year in a row when they placed fourth out of I0 teams. One Hilltopper, Herbert, managed to go home as a champion. Herbert took first place in the 100- yard backstroke and second in the 200-yard and was later named West- ern's most valuable player. Mike Gonzales, a sophomore from Munster, Ind., placed directly behind Herbert in each event. He said he looked at the year as a rebuilding one.

A lirrl too green he men's golf team began the fall season with high hopes, finishing fourth in 3 their first tournament of i the year. The Topper competed in an I 18-team field at the Murray Classic in i September. Five returning seniors: Mike Bold- ing and Eddie Carmichael of Knox- ville, Tenn., Billy Blumenherst of New Haven, Ind., Mike Vinnick of Saskatoon, Canada, and Brian Schindler of Somersworth, N.H., added to the Toppers' bright outlook for the season. The team traveled to Union City, Tenn., to play in the Goodyear Inter- collegiate, where the golfers took first place by a resounding zo strokes. Carmichael led the linksmen with a total score of 142, taking first place overall. The Toppers took their winning ways to Goshen, where they snagged second place in the Kentucky Intercol- legiate. Number-one player Carmi- chael once again captured first-place honors individually. The Hillman Robbins Memorial Tournament marked the fourth and final tournament of the fall semester for the Toppers as they made a ninth- place showing, finishing the fall sea- son at 43-12. The beginning of the spring season showed signs of disaster as Carmichael and Randy Kresnak, a sophomore from Ada, Mich., and the No. 3 play- er, both dropped out of school, leav- ing Coach Norman Head faced with the problem of inexperience. "We lacked experience" going into the spring season, Head said, but the coach expressed confidence in the newer members. 9 -PM Q59 t, 4 V , Rift, .J 'fa I an . --H ws- , ,s pq, .' lc is D 0 . . 4 ' . ., M, -if a.

Next the Toppers turned in a 13th- place showing at the Marshall P gi 2 3 5 Golf gfeefl com. Invitational in Huntington, W. Va. The team faced all of the Big IO schools along with I4 others in the Kepler Intercollegiate, which marked the third tournament of the semester for Western. There the Toppers fin- ished seventh overall, and Blumen- herst scored a team low of 229. The men ended their season with a ninth-place finish at the Wildcat Clas- sic in Lexington. They went into the Sun Belt Conference Championships with an 89-38 mark. he Lady Topper golf squad opened their season with a sixth-place finish at the Illinois State Invita- tional. The lady linksters then headed to GOLF - - - East Lansing, Mich., to play in the Northern Invitational. Although Sue Randell, a senior from Carmel, Ind., led Western with a team low of 77, the women took 12th. "We were plagued with inconsis- tency this season," Coach Kathy Tei- chert said. In the Memphis State Invitational, the Lady Toppers finished eighth overall at 981. The team made a fifth-place show- ing at the Lady Kat Invitational in Lexington.

"I just went out there fthe NCAA Indoor National Championshipsj and tried to run hard," the 17-year-old sophomore said. "I just wanted to run fast for my team and for myself." Ngubeni reached that goal when he finished fourth in the 1,ooo meter Championship with a time of 2:21.89. The top-six people in each event gained All-American status. "What Victor did was simply in- s South African Victor credible," Coach Curtiss Long said. "He wasn't intimidated at all by the strength of the field he was running with." Long felt that Western had a "very good year" colored with many memo- rable experiences. One of those memories dealt with Keith Paskett's last collegiate track and field meet at Murray State Uni- versity QMSUQ. Paskett, a Nashville, Tenn., senior, won both the 100 meter, with a time of 10:68, and the zoo meters, with a 21:72 sprint. "It was good to see Keith go out that strong," Long said. "He was a double winner and went out with 'per- sonal best' style in his last collegiate meet." High jumper john Milburn, a Lou- isville senior, also closed out the end of the season with a strong performance. Milburn won the University of Kentucky's "Kentucky Relay's" high jump with a leap of 7-o-the highest mark for a Western high jumper since Chuck Durrant went 7-IW in 1877, "john had been very consistent all year," Long said. 'Tm sure that jump is very gratifying for him because he won the State Championship at the University of Kentucky with a jump of 6-8 when he was a senior in high school." The Sun Belt cross country cham- pionships also produced a few memo- rable moments for Long. Tariku Bulto, a freshman from Philadelphia, Pa., won an individual championship in the five-mile run in jacksonville, Fla. "Tariku ran a strong five miles,', Long said. "He really just never let his pace reduce much." The women's team was not without its share of winners, either. Louisville senior Tamlyn Nelson set two records in the triple jump.

The game was rugby, and Fort Campbell was the best at the sport in the Banshee Rugby Classic at Creason Field, April 5. Fort Campbell scored 16 points in the second half of the championship game to whip the Old Boys zo-3 and win the sixth annual tournament. The Old Boys-a team of Western alumni-beat Middle Tennessee State University, 14-6, and Fort Knox, 1 2-4, on April 4 to advance to the cham- pionship game. "The Old Boys usually win a game in the tournament if they're lucky," -Greg Lovett bloody men Old Boys' Scott Neff said. "But this year we screwed up and won two games on Saturday and had to play today." Neff, a 1985 Western graduate, said the team was made up of a few players who had founded the original rugby club six years ago. "This is the one time a year that we get to see each other," he said. "It's more of a fun thing than any- thing else," Chip Cotton, a Bowling Green resident, said. "We're just hap- py to be here and get the chance to play." Fort Campbell shut out Western Io-o in the semifinals of the winners' bracket to advance to the title game. The Toppers made it to the win- ners' bracket on April 5 by running over Sewanee, 17-3, and then slam- ming Eastern Kentucky, I6-IO. But later that afternoon, Western was eliminated by the eventual cham- pions, Fort Campbell. Even though the Toppers had only one loss, they could not get into the losers' bracket. "There's not enough time and too many beat-up bodies-that's just the way rugby is," Western's Greg Holzk- necht said. "We played pretty well in the first two games," Holzknecht, a Bowling Green senior, said, "but against Fort Campbell, we got down quick and di- gressedf' The Classic was the "high point" of the season for player Ed Bracken, a senior from Herndon, Va. "We didn't have high expectations for the year with some people graduat- ing and all," Bracken said. "We got a lot of what we expected." For the first time in the history of rugby at Western, the team had a coach, Bracken said. Bob Tooney came from Atlanta where he used to coach a city team. "He was interested in helping out and we welcomed him with open arms," Bracken said. A low point in the team's season came when it could not make it to the Mardi Gras Tournament due to a lack of funds. However, this was a rebuilding year for the rugby players.

Pickens said the recreational center was vitally needed because of increased involvement in intramurals this year. "With more students enrolling, we automatically expect the participation fin intramuralsl to grow," he said. "Kids come from all walks of life. Most competed in high school and they want to continue their competi- tion." Still in the planning stages, the re- creational center would include basket- ball and volleyball courts, an indoor jogging track and a 50-meter pool- used mostly for the intramural sports. "It's the most important thing that has ever been brought up," Pickens said. "We would be expanding the intramural programs." Intramurals were played in Diddle Arena, which was occupied by classes until 3 p.m. and by basketball and volleyball practice for another four hours on weekdays. "Since welre housed in Diddle Are- na, they fintercollegiate sportsl get first pick-and rightly so," he said. "Free play is a thing of the past." More than 4,000 students, includ- ing independents, fraternity members and sorority members, participated in intramural sports each year. Intramurals had 27 sports for men and 2 1 for women, including flag foot- ball, volleyball, softball, frisbee, bas- ketball, golf and billiards. "I think everybody had a good time this year," Pickens said. "We had great competition. Flag football season was tremendous and other programs got along well." In men's intramural football action, the Renegades rolled to the title by flattening Sigma Alpha Epsilon, 41-o. It was the second-straight campus championship for the 12-o Renegades. "We were fired up for this game," Renegade coach Dave Parrott said. "SAE has played better than this. This score is not indicative of their talentf' he added, referring to the team's lo-2 record. The Snooters captured the wom- en's flag football championship by beating East Hall 13-7. The Snooters had lost twice to East in the regular season. Western finished third in the na- tional championships for women's flag football after losing 39-O to Southern Mississippi. Five Western women were named to the All-American team-Lourrae Ewbank, a Georgetown junior, Susan Hawes, an Evansville, Ind., freshman, Amy Thrasher, a Louisville sopho- more, Emily Thrasher, a Louisville senior, and Stacey Little, a Livermore freshman. "I was really surprised that I was chosen for the team because there were so many good players on the other teams," Hawes, a first-team de- fensive back, said. "I think one of the reasons that I was chosen was because we made it to the semifinals." With one second left in the intra- mural basketball championship, String Music's Kevin Watkins, an Cwensboro freshman, sank an 18- footer to give his team the title over New Edition, 64-63. Owensboro freshman Avery Tay- lor had the hot hand for String Music with zo points, while Geoff Keith, a Beaver Dam senior, led New Edition with 17. String Music's David Bailey, a Glasgow sophomore and a recreation major, scored 16 points. I-Ie received the tournament's most valuable player award. With more people playing intra- murals, Pickens said the recreational center was desperately needed. "We need to get this building so we can enjoy the facilities," he said. "The students need a place where they can go in their leisure time. "Without students, we wouldn't have a university." I -Story by Lynn Hoppes -fl -TRAMURALS - FALL SPORTS Flag Football .......

L-il Z .: a '-at .2 ,-'E W V 1 S Playing hardball ost teams with a .5oo re- cord had played an aver- age year. Most teams. Western embarked on its season facing what Coach Joel Murrie called its toughest schedule ever-including games with Texas, the No. 1 team in the nation, and Alabama. "If I wanted to win 40 games a year, I could go out and schedule some Division II and NAIA schools," Murrie said. "But my assistants and I work hard for I2 months, and it would be an insult to schedule teams we could beat with walk-ons." Despite the tall order, the Toppers opened the season by winning nine of their first I2 games, most of which were on the road. But then Western slid to 9-lo with seven straight losses. After three more wins, the Toppers went into Sun Belt play with a 12-Io record. Western traveled south to face Ala- bama-Birmingham and lost all three games by a total of four runs. "We're all disappointed about coming up short," Murrie said, "but if you're going to have a series like this, 1 X gi-asf", f-1 In a game against the Cumberland Bulldogs, Elizabethtown junior Tony Compton pitches relief. In his two innings of play, Compton gave up two runs, but Western still won the game by I4 runs. -Scott Wiseman While not in the game, Beaverton, Ore., ju- nior Rich Bracke juggles two baseballs to pass the time. Bracke, a pitcher, was a junior college transfer playing his first year for the Toppers. this is the time to have it. We're three games out of first place with I5 left." The Toppers continued to slip in the Sun Belt race as they lost two of three against South Florida in Tampa, Fla. "This is the most competitive the Sun Belt's been" since Western joined in 1981, Murrie said. "It's a very well- balanced conference." Western balanced the league even more on April Io-12 with a three- game sweep of West Division-leading South Alabama. "We said two wins was a necessity, and three would be ideal," Murrie said. "And the guys went out and did it." One guy in particular. Catcher Mike Latham, a junior from Seymour, Tenn., slammed two home runs, going eight for I2 from the plate with eight runs batted in and six runs scored. "I feel a lot better about our chances now than I did last Sunday- but I won't be comfortable until we get deeper into the schedule," he said. Murrie could afford to feel a little more comfortable a week later as -Scott Wiseman -Scott Wiseman After batting in three runs, Stan Cook, a Knoxville, Tenn., junior, is congratulated by Gary Mueller, a Warren, NJ., junior.

Western beat Alabama-Birmingham two of three games at Nick Denes Field. The win put the Toppers in second place in the division and in the driver's seat for a tourney spot. Only two teams from each division were going to the conference tournament. "We're right back in it,', Murrie said. "We've gone from 1-5 fin the leaguej to 6-6. The guys have done a great job. 'We fought hard to get back into the race, and now we have to fight even harder to stay in the hunt." South Alabama threw a wrench into the Toppers' title drive and avenged its earlier season losses with a three-game sweep of Western in Mo- bile, Ala. This left the Tops at 6-9 in the division-last place. The only way Western could reach the Sun Belt Conference Tournament would be to sweep pre-season division favorite South Florida at Nick Denes Field. "If the kids can't get ready for this one, then they can't get ready for any- one," Murrie said. But they did get ready. With a playoff spot on the line, Western pulled the sweep and grabbed a spot in the tourney. However, it was not done without a little controversy. After winning the first two games, the Toppers and Bulls battled to a 6-6 tie through seven rain-marred innings of the final game of the series on May 3. The game was delayed by the per- sistent downpour for two hours. A Sun Belt Conference rule stated the playing field had to be ready to play on 90 minutes following a rain delay. South Florida coach Eddie Cardieri said the game should have been called a tie after the 120-minute delay, but the umpires said the 90-minute rule began after the rain stopped. Cardieri went so far as to telephone conference commissioner Vic Bubas, who decided to let the umpires make the decision. "To me, the tournament represen- tative should be determined the way it was won-on the field," Murrie said. "The better team that wins on that da should o.

Western lost the game, 14-5. hafd iiil cont. Western belted out three runs in the bottom of the eighth, and reliever Tony Compton, an Elizabethtown ju- nior, came on to strike out the first two batters in the top of the ninth. But with a full count on Bull batter Todd Murray, a storm blew up, prompting the officials to call the game. "I don't care how we won, as long as we won," Compton said. The tops finished the regular sea- son losing to North Carolina State, beating UNC Charlotte, and losing to Memphis State, and headed into . ,- .- .--4.14 250 the Sun Belt tournament with a 26-26 record. "I thought we were playing our best baseball of the year late in the season," Murrie said. "We got mo- mentum going, especially with the sweep against South Florida. "Our team had the ability to get up for the big games." The tournament was no exception. Murrie's Toppers breezed past tournament favorite Old Dominion 8- 4, in the first round. The second game brought South Alabama and another big-game per- formance from the team in the 8-2 victory. Good team hitting and outstand- ing pitching by Beaver, Pa., junior Doug Piatt and Gloucester, Ontario senior Kevin Pearce helped Western slide through the first two games, Murrie said. South Alabama, however, was not finished. Coming through the loser's brack- et, the Jaguars faced Western in the next two games. South Alabama got revenge for their earlier loss, pouncing on the Toppers 9-3, and 16-11, to -Scott Wumun knock Western out of the double elimination competition. "I think we played as good and went as far as our abilities allowed us," Murrie said. "I'm not real surprised we played as good as we did in the tourney." For the year, the biggest problem for the team was consistency, Murrie said. "fButJ I thought we did a good job considering the level of competi- tion we were up against."

"It seems like such a dream," she said. "I think about it almost every day." McCormick and approximately 1 go other stu- dents from Western chose an alternative over the traditional summer school term offered on campus. To allow students even more choices, the Cooperative Center for Study in Britain, a Western-based program, offered two five- week terms. Both packages had a different format for studying while traveling. However, they were carefully orga- nized to include trips to the standard tourist sites like Stratford-Upon- Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace, Ox- ford, Cambridge, and the Tower of London, not to mention countless castles and museums all over Eng- land, Scotland and Vlales. During Summer Term I, students stayed with British families in places such as Plymouth, Bristol, Lincoln and London in England, and Stirling in Scotland. In Summer Term II, students were based in London, and from there they traveled independent- ly or in small groups to various places around Britain via their Britrail passes which were included in the program package. Dr. James Baker, professor of history and director of the University Honors program, acted as adviser for both Summer Terms I and II. "Summer Term I is mobile, meaning that we're on a coach almost every day," he said. "The lecture has to be done on the coach over a microphone." N'-I-a for the courses of- fered in Summer Term I, Ba- ker said the approach "has to be much broader" than in Term II. For example, Baker taught a course called the Humanistic Tradition of Britain that covered, "architecture, art, history and literature," he said. Students were also required to give "written responses to certain experiences." Michael Laws, a Nashville, Tenn., junior, en- rolled in the humanities course in Summer Term I. He said that in a usual day the host family, "fed us breakfast and usually took us to our meeting place. They packed us a lunch, we spent the day traveling and we were usually back by suppertime, or tea time, whatever it was. At night we would go out to one of the pubs." Laws said that living with a different family in another part of Britain each week was the big advan- tage to Summer Term I. c" .rw X -Mitchell McKinney -Wfalker Rutledge A window frames a typical college quadrangle.

That was the best thing about Summer Term I. You got to learn how the people really live," Laws said, Laws said he also learned about the views the British had about Americans. "The British have just as warped a view of us as we do of them. They think we are all rich. They get that from TV. We did our best to cure them of that. "It gave us a look at how people other than Americans live. It broadened viewpoints.

When he returns, he plans to spend? more time in Scotland and Wales. "I would love to go and spend a week through the foothills of Wales, taking zo or go rolls of pictures," he said. McCormick chose Summer Term II because, "I liked the idea of being in one place for a length of time. I really got to know about one specific place without having to move on,', she said. Also, McCormick chose the second term because she thought not staying with a family would allow her more freedom. "On Summer Term II if I came in late, I wouldrft be affecting anyone but myself." 'RV' l ...XX picture it," Laws said. "I have seen how they live. I have seen what is important to them." o...n" f""" Students participating in Summer Term II stayed at King's College in Kensington where they took up to six hours of credit in various courses of literature, history, geography and education. As a part of the package, students received a "tube" or subway pass for the London Underground, an Open-to-View pass for various historical sites and museums, as well as a three-to-four week Britrail pass. Classes met once a week and then the students were free to travel wherever they liked. Students also chose from various group trips to Edinburg, Scot- land, Aberystwyth, Walesg and Paris, France. McCormick preferred the trip to Paris over the one to Edinburg. "What I saw from the train in Scotland, I loved. It was green with mountains and sheep. As far as Edinburg was concerned, it was probably the most disappointing trip. The city was ditty and it was dank and cold the weekend we were there," she said. I-Iowevf swell e .t sg K 'O - A . at were , QE WIS eil 5 . fQX'sYf Que g guna Q e McCormick said that there were some great histori- fcal sites in Edinburg that she would not have missed, lilce the castle that towerecl above the city. As for Paris, "That was probably my favorite itripf' McCormick said. "It was so completely differ- ent from anything we had seen in England. Where lEngland shut down at II p.m., Paris was alive at night. Everything they say about Paris being the city of romance is true." McCormick said that as far as her travels in England went, her trip to the Yorkshire Moors in the north country was the highlight. "There was a peacefulness in the moors. It was different than anything I had seen. You really got a feeling for the land. It was a moving experience, almost spiritual, standing on top of the moorsf' McCormick said. On her trip to the moors and other places, McCormick, as well as many other students, stayed in "bed and breakfasts," where travelers got a room for the night and the traditional English breakfast of cereal, poached eggs, sausage, tomato, tea and toast. f "They were fantasticf' McCormick said. "I went to seven or eight. They were neat for getting a real feel for where you were. I got to meet people from all over at breakfasts like Australia and Germany, I spent more in bed and hrealcfasts than I even thought about spending on souvenirs. They were well worth every penny spentf, It was true that the study tours in England did cost more than the typical summer terms on West- ern's campus, but Laws said that the cost, about 51900, unnecessarily deterred some people from going. i "A lot of people think you can't go because of the money, but you can get financial aid just lilce Sum- mer school." Laws also had some advice for anyone considering the program. "GOI If ever you can, GGY' I meaty Mfcsfmfci. f 5 . R gs 1 ., ,, f s, , 1 a o F J' , ':' irfsll !:1.'

But Bill Buren, an Erlangei junior, and Dan Caple, a Ludlow junior, whistled their way tc respectability. Whistle while they work he stereotype is seemingly etched in Stone. Referees are older than George Burns' original teeth and wear glasses thicker than the bottom of whiskey bot- tles. But Erlanger junior Bill Buren and Ludlow ju- nior Dan Caple, both 2I years old, broke away from that image. The two roommates began refereeing little league, junior high and junior varsity football games at the beginning of the fall semester. "We thought since we were new, the coaches would be on our butts," Caple said, "but they clidn't throw tomatoes or anything." The two young referees got their start when they received a phone call from Lace Gilbert, a physical education and recreation teacher. He informed them that the junior high football coach at Metcalf Coun- ty, Fred I-Iarbison, "was looking for somebody to referee some games," Buren said. Buren was in Gilbert's sports officiating class and agreed to officiate as part of his lab time required for the class. Buren recommended Caple as a possible referee also, although Caple had no training exper- ience. "I used to play football. I guess that's why they asked me," Caple said. The two met as freshmen when they were both playing football for the Toppers. Both said they were interested in sports officiating. x "Growing up, I was interested in sports. Part of it was probably because my dad refeeredf' Caple said. Buren's interest in officiating grew while he was taking Gilbert's sports officiating class. "I took it fthe classjf' Buren said, "because I wanted to learn more about officiating and the rules of the game." Buren and Caple agreed they wouldn't mind officiating professionally. "I'd like to coach a little too," Buren said. "Offi- ,ciating's fun, though." Finding humor in the job made it even more enjoyable for Buren and Caple. "The funniest partf' Caple explained, "was that they just threw us in there. "We didn,t have any flags to throw fwhen a penalty was calledj , so we went to Roses and bought towels and put rocks in them. When we threw a flag, the kids looked at us and said, 'What was that? You just threw a washclothl' " After getting used to being called "sir" by the players, Caple and Buren began to feel more at home in their striped shirts. "We got to know the Metcalf County players pretty well," Caple said. "Une of them would be coming around the end about to break fintoj a long run," Buren said, "and we'd be going 'Yea, yea, gol' " Both felt that they were still able to judge impar- tially, however. "If they fthe players, did it, we'd call it," Buren said. Although the two spent much of their time to- gether, they were not without their occasional differ- ences. "I'm easy-going and he's always complaining," Caple joked. "But we do test each other's nerves a little bitf, The two usually agreed with each other on the field, though. "If I saw a penalty and he fCapleQ didn't, he'd go along with me," Buren said. As for their future in officiating, the options were wide open. The intramurals program used student referees, and both Caple and Buren expressed an interest in officiating basketball. "If I were to go talk to my old high school coach," Buren said, "I might be able to get a job helping out during the summertime." As a recreation major and physical education minor, Caple also had the possibility of a future in refereeing or even coaching. The only thing holding them back was that they still had good eyesight and their own teeth.

The planetarium's shows attracted about 15,000 people a year, 8,500 from schools in the area. Elementary students from Butler and Ohio counties tour the exhibits surrounding the planetarium.

Those students enrolled in Astronomy 104, As- tronomy of the Solar System, were required to at- tend public shows that the planetarium featured each semester. An annual show was also held called "The Star of Bethlehem," which attempted to ex- plain the "star" seen over Bethlehem during the first Christmas. "We get about 15,000 people in here a year," jane King, physics and astronomy administrative secretary, said. "About 5,000 to 6,000 are from the general public, and about 8,500 from schools in the area. "The Mennonites bring a group in every year to see the Christmas show," she said. Hardin Planetarium was usually booked during the last half of the spring semester. Special shows were planned for school children ranging from first graders to high school teenagers. Paul Campbell, physics and astronomy director at the planetarium, ran most of the shows for children. When he took over as director in 1970, Campbell taught one class, had eight student workers and advertised for the children's shows. Responsible for the entertainment and programs, Jane King, physics and astronomy administrative secretary, sits behind her desk in her office. Her job obligations included organizing field trips and giving tours. "Now, manpower restricts how many people can come because of the number of shows possible," Campbell said. The planetarium no longer advertised, and peo- ple sometimes got turned away. Budget cuts forced them to give up most of their student workers. Astronomy students used to spend the first few weeks of each semester in the planetarium pointing out constellations for class credit. At times, shows ran throughout the day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. But budget cuts also cut that out. Daniel Duffy, a Bowling Green freshman, was the only student worker during the 1987 spring semester. Duffy worked 10- 1 2 hours a week in the planetar- ium, mostly with the public shows. "I did a lot of inventory," Duffy said. "I found stuff to do." A physics major with an option in computers, Duffy said the main reason he worked with astron- omy was the pay he earned through the job. Duffy met Campbell when Duffy was in high school at Warren Central. "I was involved in Project Challenge," Duffy said. "My group won, and our project was going to go up in the shuttle." Although the project was scheduled to go up in the space shuttle Challenger this year, the plan fell through due to the tragic explosion of the shuttle 74 seconds after takeoff on january 28, 1986. Duffy planned to go into the space program. With the huge computers NASA had, it would be great, he said. 'Tve gotten to know a lot about the shuttle by working here," he said. "I want to go see it go up next time." Duffy enjoyed his work because he had become friends with Campbell. Apparently Campbell's in- fluence with young people also extended to the very young. A typical planetarium show for young children went as follows: Campbell: What does this building look like, boys and girls? First graders: A space ship, an egg, a frisbee? Campbell: It's a funny sounding word . . . Let's hear you say it . . . Planetarium. First graders: PLANETARIUIVI. Campbell: Let's find some appropriate music and sit back and enjoy the show. As the lights slowly dimmed from daylight to dusk to night, "When You Wish Upon A Star" was heard over the "oohs', and "aahs" of the audi- ence. The planetarium show had begun. Several times during the show, Campbell had to remind the students to be quiet enough to hear him speak about the heavens. But by the end of the program, the first graders were obviously smitten with dreams of outer space. The fact that Campbell made several space con- quests in the process of a 45-minute show was obvi- ous by the number of kids who patiently waited afterward to purchase souvenirs from the gift shop. -Story by Angela Garrett I -Photos by Joe Futia if J -uwq?,., ff' JTC C 'NN wfdf X ,W-.T,,,ur ' ...vanw- --ai r- 3 Cleaning the reactors with a solvent, Ramsey makes sure that she removes all the coal and then dries and weighs the samples.

A For the past one-and-a-half years, Ramsey, a Madisonville junior and a chemistry ma- jor, had been doing research on coal with a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The grant was obtained for Western by Dr. William Lloyd and Dr. john Riley of the chemistry department and Dr. Kenneth Kuehn of the geology department. The grant paid for five undergraduate and two graduate student workers, said Riley, co-principle investigator of the project and head of Western's Center for Coal Science. The students got research credit for the project. "There are several different coal research projects being conducted in the chemistry department," Ri- ley said. Dallas Meloon, a second-year graduate student from Louisville, finished his coal research earlier in the semester. By working 20 to 30 hours a week for more than a year, Meloon received 37,000 from the graduate student research assistantship program. The program was sponsored by LECO Corp., a scientific instrument company. Meloon's work involved researching the gasses and products emitted when coal was heated at differ- ent temperatures. LECO had Western do the research to determine why instrument methods gave better results than the standard tests developed by the American Soci- ety for Testing and Materials, Meloon said. Ramsey, who usually worked IO to I5 hours a week, said her research involved coal micronization. This was a method of grinding or crushing coal to micron-sized particles. A micron was 1,oooth of a millimeter. Through coal micronization, researchers hoped to remove the sulfur and mineral matter that could cause environmental problems. They also hoped to discover whether the smaller particles were more reactive, Debbie Kuehn, editor of the Journal of Coal Quality and an adjunct assistant chemistry professor, said. During Ramsey's experiments, coal was placed in a small vessel with tetralin. The mixture was heated to 752 degrees Fahrenheit and agitated vigorously. The coal was then emptied out, dried in an oven and weighed. Ramsey's research involved comparing the differ- ent samples from each of her experiments. She com- pared the percentage of liquid products which were obtained from various types of coal. The coal research was to make liquefaction a more efficient means of processing coal. During liquefaction, some of the organic components of coal were made more soluble or actually turned into a liquid. According to Riley, liquid fuel was easier to burn and transport. "We hope to solve some of the problems associat- ed with the use of coal," Riley said. "We also hope to find some new ways of using coal." The main purpose of coal research was to deter- mine more efficient ways of using coal, Kuehn said. "Oil and gas are not going to last forever," she said. "We are trying to come up with a substitute that will be an energy source for the future." Ramsey compared what they were doing to the efforts to improve solar energy. Meloon hoped to continue doing research but said, "It's real tough right now in the chemistry industry. Six months from now I might be bagging groceries." Ramsey's work was the catalyst which caused her to make a definite decision to major in chemistry. She hoped the coal research she had done would give her an edge over other prospects in job inter- view situations. "I'm just glad I've done this because it taught me that this is what I want to do," she said. "I would be perfectly happy doing bench work for the rest of my life. I may be smelly and dirty, but I don't mind." I -Story by Nancy Murphy -Photos by Royce Vibbert 263 Coal research ,df """-Q Cn of th guys t was not an easy field for anyone - female or male. But for some people, becoming a nurse was something they would work long and hard to achieve. It was true - there were more females in the field than males, but this did not bother Tomp- kinsville junior Bradley Emmert. "I knew I wanted to go into the medical field," Emmett said. Emmert began working at the Monroe County Medical Center the summer after he graduated from high school. After observing all of the areas, "Nurs- ing just caught my eye because itls not something everybody can dof' he said. Even though nursing has been a predominantly female field, "There is nothing different between males and females in the field," Mary Hazzard, head of the nursing department, said. "There are more males now than I5 or 16 years ago," she said. "The percentage isn't all that high, but the field is growing." The male nurse did bring a different aspect to the idea of nursing. "We take this back to family situationsf' Haz- zard said. "Today many fathers take care of the children, and they bring their own dimensions of nurturing and caring to the family." This same principle could be applied to nursing. "Nursing is something you do to help others," Emmert said, "and the rewards come from the pa- tients. Knowing that you helped somebody is what ties it all togetherf' According to Hazzard, some people may refuse to have a male nurse. "More females refuse than males," she said. "It is just the individual's feelings toward that. But you 264 .bf lVJLjl'77lH Y also see this with female nurses." According to Paula Wagner, a sophomore nurs- ing student from Evansville, Ind., male nurses some- times have an advantage. "Sometimes boys would rather have a male nurse for some of the more personal procedures," she said. But other than that, "Everybody takes the males as being the same, no different," Wagner added. According to Hazzard, nursing was a broad field with a diverse range of jobs available. "Nursing is a field that allows a lot of shifting," Hazzard said, "mainly because of the amount of areas." Because of the available bachelor degrees, Haz- zard said there were many different areas open to nurses, including hospitals, home health, occupa- tional health and community health. "You can still have a career change in nursing l l During ltmch, Tompkinsville junior Bradley Emmert jokes around with some of the other nurses in his class. He was an inern at the Medical Center, where he worked every Tuesday and Thursday with as many as three or four patients. While his patient's arm is submerged in a whirlpool bath by a nurse, Emmett observes the procedure. The patient's arm was burned from the elbow to the fingertips when his car caught on fire as he was working on it. and still be functioning as a nurse," she said. job opportunities were just one of the reasons that a person might choose nursing as a career, Hazzard said. "Some people start out as military corpsmen. Others find that they like working with people and like the health care field," she said. Other people have just had some contact along the line or had a family member who was in nursing, she added. There were two degree programs offered by the nursing department. Seven males were enrolled in the associate degree program, while only two! At the Medical Center, male nurse Emmert carefully replaces a sheer on one of the hospital beds. Some of his other responsibil- ities while caring for patients included administering medicine and delivering meals. QJIU of--atc 40. ae., , 2 65 Bradley Emmert 1, 1 X xx it ' x 1 ix XNXX lp XX.

In order to get into the associate degree program, a student had to earn a grade point average of at least 2.5. This requirement fluctuated depending upon how many students the program had room for. For the BS degree, admission was a 2. 3. Once a student made it into the program, he or she had to maintain a 2.0. Nursing classes included four hours of lectures and eight hours of lab during the first year of the AD program. The second year included four hours of lecture also, with 16 hours of lab. "On Sunday and Tuesday we go to the hospital to get patient information and to meet the patient," Wagner said. "We then write assessments and care plans for them. On Monday and Wednesday we work from 7 to 3 at the hospital and with the patient that we were assigned to." Wagner felt that there were a few criteria that a nurse should possess, whether the person was a male or a female. "If you're going to choose nursing, you have to want to help people,', Wagner said. "It's a leader- ship and responsibility role that requires a lot of time and hard work. If you plan on getting anything out of nursing, you have to put a lot into it." Emmert agreed that nursing was not for every- one. "You have to be sure,,' he said. "You have to know this is what you really want to do."

She was a technical illustration major and was required to talce the two-hour-long class. Students work intently on their projects in the advanced air- brush class. Grading of the projects was based on the mastery of five basic shapes which students learned to render on paper. 268 f'lt.1deinxU ing up 5 , ost people perceived airbrushing as a flashy sunset scene stretched across a T- shirt or the name of a girl painted across a license plate. For students enrolled in Airbrush IIS and the advanced class, Airbrush 330, the perception of the technique was a little different. Airbrushing didn't mean painting creative de- signs on a 12-by-6-inch piece of metal or on a shirt, but it meant learning how to be creative and artistic as well as learning how to do technical airbrushing. Airbrushing was "applying different tones and colors of inlc by compressed air which is controlled by the handf' Michael Farnsley, a Bowling Green senior and member of the advanced class, said. "It makes you see shadows and shapes in a more technical way," Farnsley said. "It helps you see in a 3-D way." The two-hour-long airbrush classes were required for technical illustration majors and other students in various fields. "Airbrush is not taught that much. Western is the only university that offers the technical illustra- tion degreef, Wandel Dye, instructor of the two classes, said. "Airbrush is most popular with techni- cal illustration, art, journalism and interior design fmajorsjf' Dye added that the classes were a strong supple- ment to these programs. The curriculum for the technical illustration degree began in the early ,705 2 1 N -. - of ut 5 , ,f"Z, inf... .--""' 4 i i :on a new approach and the associate degree program began in 1977. The technical illustration degree was made up of four areas: airbrush, technical art, graphic art and computer graphics. Also included in the degree were industrial photography and technical writing courses. Abstract airbrushing was not taught in the two classes, Dye said. Instead, the program stressed "tight representational art and art for industry." "Airbrushing is a rendering tool for the artist in values and tones," Dye said. "It is both a representa- tional and a realistic type of art work." "It's very basic. He fDyel starts with basics and you build on from there," Sabrina Huffaker, a fresh- man from Boulder, Colo., said. Airbrushing did not turn out to be as easy as expected, Farnsley said. "I thought it would be like what T-shirt artists do, but itis more difficultf' he said. "It's not done freehand." For students in the beginning class, the tech- niques for learning the concepts of airbrushing be- gan with blowing large and small dots on paper. The succeeding steps were: learning how to con- trol distance, drawing lines, flat washes, doing realis- tic type figures, light and results of light, and learn- ing how to put a tone to realistic art. For all airbrush students, projects were based on five basic shapes: the cone, sphere, cube, cylinder and a concave form. Students learned how to render each shape on paper. Dye said that every project was based on geomet- ric shapes, and the shapes were related to industrial products. "You learn how to airbrush different surfaces and textures, such as black rubber, cast iron and steel," Krista Proctor, a Utica freshman and ad- vanced airbrush student, said. By blowing dots, the students learned how to control distance with the airbrush. Rendering lines taught them the basic control of the tool. However, before the beginning students started blowing dots, they began by drawing the objects in graphite pencil. Colored pencils were used for draw- ings following this step. For the actual airbrushing of their projects, stu- dents used an opaque white paper of medium to smooth grain. Those enrolled in the classes were required to pay a S5 lab fee to cover the cost of frisket paper. The paper was used to cover the side of the project that was not to be airbrushed. All other necessary sup- plies, such as the airbrush, paper, straight edges and water-soluble ink, were provided. "Airbrushing gave me something else to do. It brings out my artistic ability people say I have," given a practical exam that consisted of four airbrush problems which needed to be corrected. "The tests are confusing," said Doris Sutton, a Hardin freshman and advanced airbrush student. "It's not easy, but the teacher is good and the atmosphere is really relaxed and enjoyable, even though you work hardf, Some of the problems on the final exam consisted of doing flat washes as well as gradated washes with color.

H Their destination was the basement of the Allen County Public Library in Scottsville. After unloading and setting up camp, the group designat- ed the library as its official headquarters. The basement was turned into a professional photo-developing lab on Oct. 9, and 26 students and professionals began to record small-town life in pho- tographs. The Mountain People's Workshop had begun. Each student had three days and to rolls of black and white film to document a Scottsville resident or location. During the day the photojournalists worked on their photo stories and wandered around the town square.

At night the staff critiqued the day's negatives, offered advice for improving the stories and gave slide shows and lectures about professional photo- journalism. The professionals included Jack Corn, director of photography for the Chicago Tribune, and Stormi .Greener, photojournalist for the Minneapolis Star and Tribune. The annual workshop, planned by Western in- structors, offered students and professionals a chance to practice documentary photography and to live and learn with fellow photojournalists. "It's hard, but it's a good experience," said Corn, a former photojournalist-in-residence at Western. "These shooters sink or swim here. Itls a lot of pressure." Photo instructor Dave LaBelle, formerly of the Sacramento Bee, and photo-sequence head Mike Morse chose the site and found the photo subjects. Scottsville had about 4, goo residents, but it was a small town with corporate connections. Dollar Gen- eral Store's national headquarters was based there. "We do this almost every year," Morse said. "It's challenging. It's an opportunity for professionals to get out and document. It's freedom for them. "For the students, it's a chance to work side by side, watching well-known pros. They see what the real world is like." It was also a chance for the residents of the town to see themselves as others saw them. Retired school teacher and principal .lack Fraime, 78, said, "We think we've got a good place here. But it's interest- ing to watch these photographers come in - what they look at, who they talk to, what they find. It's a new perspective." The workshop photographs were edited by the spring photo-editing class at Western. The pictures and stories were then compiled into a soft-bound book, titled "Scottsville," due out in September 1987. Fraime had lived in Scottsville nearly 40 years and was proud of the town. He hoped the photogra- phers who had documented it were able to capture all aspects of the town.

"They're actually better than I expected," Clark- son senior Tammy Gibson said of her 25 third grade students. Gibson was a student teacher at Warren Elemen- tary during the spring semester. "I have an unusual class," Gibson said. "Most teachers, over a seven-week period, would end up having to paddle." Student teaching at Warren Elementary involved teaching many subjects. "I even teach P.E. fphysical educationj there because they don't have a P.E. teacher," Gibson said. Cl If They fstudentsj enjoy having a student teach- "They look forward to it."

Gibson had been assigned to Perkins' class for pre-student teaching in the fall. Pre-student teach- ing involved working with three or four children, while student teaching consisted of actually teaching class. "Our principal said that if we liked our pre- student teachers, we could arrange for them to stu- dent teach for us," Perkins said.

Since then, he has excelled at nearly every phase of basketball competition. The dreamer and achiever was John Oldham. Oldham's office displayed symbols of his many accomplishments, including his I5 years as West- ern's athletic director. He resigned his position in September of 1986 but kept symbols of his exper- ience, knowledge and strategies hung on his office wall, along with a latch-hook work of Western's red towel. "I love being associated with Western," he said. Oldham, now 63 years old, said he would like to spend the rest of his days here. While growing up in the small town of Hartford, most of Oldham's afternoons were spent working. "My father owned a country store, and I would work for him after school and on Saturdays," he said. The work did not stop Oldham from performing on the basketball court, however former at Hartford High School in 1942. P This special recognition helped him to win a par- tial scholarship to play for Western Kentucky University, then named Western State Teachers College. He played varsity basketball for the Hilltoppers as a freshman until he entered the Navy. While in the service, he played on the National Champion- ship Basketball Team at Great Lakes. During 1944-46, Oldham played on the national- ly ranked Memphis Navy team. "While in the service, I matured a lot and became more studious," he said. "I was more eager to come back and get an education." After serving three years, Oldham returned to Western and was selected as a member of the South- ern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference team cI947,, the Ohio Valley Conference team fI947,, and the Kentucky Intercollegiate team f1948Q. He also was selected as a basketball All-American by the American Press International. After graduating with a physical education major and minors in English and biology, Oldham played for a professional team, the Fort Wayne, Ind., Pis- tons, for two years. ways." tif:-as 276 Academics Oldhjm wasan AH- "I love the students and working Stare basketball per- with them.

He took his first team to the Kentucky State Basketball Tournament. Accepting the head basketball coach position at Tennessee Technical School in 1955, he won or tied for three OVC titles during his nine-year tenure. Oldham replaced the living legend, E.A. Diddle, in 1964 as Western's head basketball coach. "I didn't try to live up to his winning traditions because he was a winning coach," Oldham said. "I told him I wouldn't coach as long or win as many. And I didn't. "I was fortunate, though, to have talent and win a large percentage of the games," he said. Oldham perpetuated Western's reputation as a winning program on the national level. His teams won four OVC championships and appeared in four National Collegiate Athletic Association Tourna- ments and one NIT. "I enjoyed coaching the '66 team of fClemQ Haskins, Steve Cunningham and Wayne Chap- man," he said. "They were such an all-around ball club." Although the '66 team was regarded as Oldham's best, it was the 1970-71 ball team which brought him the most recognition. The team fell to Villanova 92-89 in two overtimes at the Fi- nal Four, taking third-place honors. A certificate from the National Association of Basketball Coaches hangs in Oldham's office, re- minding others of his honors as District Coach of the year in 1970-71. Ted Hornback, Diddle's longtime basketball as- sistant, retired as athletic director following the 1970-71 school year. Oldham replaced him and also ended his seven years as head coach. His last major change as athletic director was the transition from the OVC to the Sun Belt Conference. "It was the biggest change for Western, and maybe a positive one," he said. "There were budget cuts, it was a major experience for us all after 28 years fin OVCl." Jimmy Feix, who replaced Oldham as athletic director, praised his predecessor for the way he had handled the change. "It was a national issue, and Mr. Oldham used good judgement and directions," Feix said. Although Oldham was retired from the adminis- tration, he still played an important role at Western. He taught two classes a week for the physical educa- tion department and served on the Board of Direc- tors for the Hilltopper Athletic Foundation. "I love the students and working with them. It keeps me young and alert and keeps me from setting my ways," he said. Because of his outstanding leadership as a player, coach, and administrater, Oldham was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame Aug. 25, 1986. "What honors you the most about being induct- ed is the people you go in with. It's a great honor," he said. Other great legends inducted in Louisville were Tommy Bell, Jim Bunning, Adolph Rupp and Ralph Beard. Oldham was also involved with the community as a member of the state board and local board of the Cancer Society and as a Boys' Club volunteer. "Bill Ocean, University of Louisville's athletic director, got me interested as a volunteer in the Cancer Society. I enjoy the work and working to- ward a good cause," he said. In Oldham's spare time, he also did two hours of public relations for Leachman Buick GMC and en- joyed making and designing clocks. "Any time you have the support of your family, it is much easier," he said. He and his wife of 36 years, Bobbie, have two children. His son, John, 34, did artwork for Mid- South Management. His 21-year-old daughter, Su- zanne, worked part-time at Castner Knott depart- ment store. "My wife is very strong and supportive of me and my work," Oldham said. "She's an excellent house- keeper and dedicated to the home. The support makes my work easier." Oldham's wife felt pride for her husband as a player, coach and athletic director. "I always felt that since he had been in it so long," she said, "it fsupportj was the natural thing to do. "You have to be supportive in all they do. There's a lot of difference being a coach's wife and an AD's fathletic directorj wife," Mrs. Oldham said. Some might think of Oldham as a legend who made Western what it was in athletics. However, he never aimed for the spotlight. "I've been in the position of lime light. Really I'm not doing more than the person who doesn't get the light," Oldham said. "There are many other people who have done more than me. I'm thankful for the talent that God gave me and thankful for the talent to work with."

She had been a graduate assistant for two years during the time she worked on her master's degree in com- munication and theater. She became faculty, though, because students could assist for only two years. Her first experience in teaching occurred when she was a senior in high school. Her dance teacher gave her a class of 8-year-olds to instruct. "I enjoyed watching kids get excitedf, she said. "It was fun to see them grow and develop in the er parents wanted her to be a piano player. art." Although her undergraduate degree was in per- forming arts, she preferred a master's in dance, but Western did not offer one. However, staying at Western gave Ford the op- portunity to get the teaching experience she needed while completing her graduate work. At the same time, her husband was completing his graduate work in health care administration. The situation worked well for Ford. Not only did she obtain experience in teaching, but in communi- cations, choreography and the technical aspect of theater as well as other areas. "I feel I will be much more marketable," Ford said, "because of the well-rounded experience I am gettingf, Ford hoped to teach dance after she graduated. "I have really enjoyed working with the college- age students," she said. "My master's will enable me to teach at the college level. "Working here has been almost like an appren- ticeship or on-the-job training," she added. "I'm getting hands-on experience." In addition to her teaching and master's work, Ford had also choreographed five numbers for the annual dance concert. This involved developing an idea, choosing music and teaching dancers the fin- ished product. She was also director of the WKU Youth Dance Program which had been in existence for five years.

"It gives students the experience of teaching dance to younger kids," Ford said. "It's also a com- munity service." As an instructor, Ford was gentle and even comi- cal with her students. She referred to one stretch as the "Barry Stretchv while a Barry Manilow tune echoed in the background. She first demonstrated the routine, then walked through it once while the students followed. Her next step was to help the students with their move- ments as they went through it a final time to be sure they understood. Beverly Veenker, director of the dance company, felt Ford made a fine teacher. "She's always open to learning herself," Veenker said. "She doesn't just try to show everyone how much she knows, she really teaches." While Ford was a grad assistant, she taught four classes a semester. Some of the classes she had taught were basic ballet, basic jazz, intermediate jazz, basic modern, pas de deux fa ballet figure or dance for One method Ford uses to teach is illustrating how to do the move as well as explaining it.

"Most grad assistants only teach one subject," she said. "I have four. A lot of time goes into planning each individual course even though they are only one-hour classes. I teach the beginning and intermediate classes, and Beverly teaches the inter- mediate-advanced classes." After graduation, Ford planned to move to Nashville where her husband already had a job. She was unsure of her future after that point, though she had several ideas in mind. Ford had been offered a position by her former instructor at the Ann Carroll School of Dance in Franklin, Tenn. Carroll planned to open a new branch and wanted Ford to operate it. "I would also like to check into some of the Nashville area colleges for work," Ford said. Ford felt that love and patience were keys to success in dancing. Dedication, time, and physical and emotional pain were important as well. "You have to get used to coming home with sore muscles," she said, "but you have the feeling of a day well spent."

Requirements for the course included mastering certain computer skills, which took the average stu- "The students put in a lot of time," Taylor said. "In the main, I think they enjoy the experiences. I hope they do." Experiences included assisting at Panorama, an intermediate care facility for the mentally retardedf developmentally handicapped, and being buddies to participants in the Special Olympics in April. Taylor said many of the students first went out to Panorama with "a whole lot of fear." "They are thinking it will be like the slums at night," he said, "but they find out there are decent people there. I hope they gain something from the 282 A cadcm LU dent about I0 hours to do. Some looked upon it as the biggest threat of the class, Taylor said. "I'm sure I enjoy the computer lab more than some of my students," he said, "but we wanted to spread computer learning in all education classes. We use programs that deal with the handicapped in 373-H The class was required for those seeking teacher certification on the secondary level. Before it was first offered five years ago, Taylor said those in secondary education spent only about two weeks studying the handicapped. "We put it in as a separate class because we found proaches the relationship of teachers and students in more of a feeling kind of way." Compton said her favorite part had been the subject of "labeling" covered in a few of the two- hour lectures. She said people are used to labeling the handicapped. "We talked about how that takes a person's indi- vidualism away," Compton said. "Labeling related to everything else we studied." Because the course covered a large number of topics, students did not have time to do all of the planned exercises. In previous years, members were required to use wheelchairs and wear bandages over their eyes while they tried to go to the restrooms. "We couldn't find a wheelchair this year," Tay- lor said. "They don't see us around the halls as much as they used to." Through all the activities, many students were able to acquire an understanding and acceptance of the handicapped. They were able to grasp the de- gree of difficulty of being handicapped in a normal world. "They're just like us," Bettina Poland, a Tomp- kinsville senior, said. "They're not as different as I thought they were." I -Story by jennifer Strange -Photo by Royce Vibbert ' ca' a ' 1 5, L' 5, 4, 'Um- 4 M.

In his opening remarks on Dec. 1 3 in Van Meter Auditorium, Western's seventh president, Alexander, says that he accepts the presidency "with a deep sense of humility." The auditorium was filled to near capacity. 284 Academics -fame: Borcbutk Formula for the future ,,,1:,,.,:.,.Q5, his is a time to celebrate . . . the rich if heritage of this institution." Board of Regents Chairman Joe Ira- f cane of Owensboro spoke with enthusi- asm about the official installation of Western's sev- enth president, Dr. Samuel Kern Alexander. Iracane was one of many alumni, faculty members and stu- dents who joined in the celebration of the inaugura- tional ceremonies and week-long activities held the week of Dec. 8. President Alexander, wearing the official medal- lion of Western Kentucky University, was installed during special ceremonies Dec. I3 at 2 p.m. in Van Meter Auditorium. "I accept the presidency of Western Kentucky University with a deep sense of humility," Alex- ander said. "There is no honor that the people of my native state could have bestowed on me which I could cherish more than the opportunity to serve them as president of Western." The Christmas Madrigal Feast, a Renaissance and Medieval tradition-based modern invention, highlighted the opening activities of the event. WKU's Student Alumni Association and the National Alumni Association hosted receptions ear- lier that week for President Alexander in the Craig Alumni Center. Selected students and faculty mem- bers were sent invitations for the festivities. Former Western presidents Kelly Thompson, -Tim Broekenia Dero Downing and John Minton unveiled "West- ern Presidents 1906-1986" Wednesday in the Ken- tucky Museum. The painting was displayed in the lobbies of Wetherby Administration Building and Van Meter Auditorium during the week. A community dinner featuring Dr. Lowell Harri- son, university historian, was held Wednesday. The Bowling Green-Warren County Chamber of Com- merce hosted the dinner at the Kentucky Museum. Dr. Vivian Williams, professor of educational studies at Oxford University, lectured the next day after a reception sponsored by the Faculty Senate. President Alexander's colleague spoke on structural and organizational change in the English Educa- tional System. Attending the inauguration ceremony with Judge john S. Palmore of Henderson, a member of WKU's Board of Regents, was Gov. Martha Layne Collins. "We are proud to have such a distinguished Kentucky scholar and educator return to one of our premiere institutions," Collins said of the president. Dr. Charles B. Reed, chancellor of the State University System of Florida, delivered the inaugu- ral address and praised the new president. "He has the values of a leader integrity, personal security, a sense of priority and vision," Reed said. "He can see clearly what needs to be done, and he knows how to get it done." Qx me-Q or 'ii Alexander, a Marrowbone native, addressed a crowd of 800, including college and university repre- sentatives from across the country and from Oxford University in England, the oldest college in the world. Alexander's mother, Emma, a former school teacher, was presented with a bouquet of red roses. Alexander said that the most important goal for the university was to "mitigate inequality in our societyi' by providing an education to each and every individual. "These are the principles for which Western has stood for 80 years," he said, "and herein lies our formula for the future." Alexander added that the university should "seek to foster a society where those who are industrious, knowledgeable, ethical and moral will be held in highest esteem." According to Alexander, the primary reason for existence of the state university was to educate youth by drawing nearer to the elementary and secondary schools. This was accomplished by identifying and shaping the educational programs necessary to ad- dress those student needs. "Western should stand forthright and assert a will to erase economic, social and hereditary privi- lege," the president said.

I At least the Kentucky chapter of Phi Beta Lamb- da, a professional business organiza- tion, was behind Angela Morehead when she decided to run for PBL na- tional secretary in 1986. "It was the most exciting year of my lifef' Morehead said. "Nothing else you could do during your collete years would compare to it." Morehead, a Franklin senior, was a member of the Future Business Lead- ers of America and PBI. for a total of eight years. When she had met the qualifica- tions and had state approval to run for national secretary, Morehead went on to the national conference in Wash- ington, D.C. in july of 1986. After screenings and approval from the national office, Morehead spent two days giving campaign speeches and meeting members from across the country. It paid off when she won the election with 79 percent of the vote. Morehead soon realized that as na- tional secretary she had to take min- utes at executive board meetings as well as type them. Board meetings often lasted until one or two each night. "Everyone else went to bed," she said, "but I had to stay up typing notes for the next day." Morehead was also responsible for correspondence for the national office. "I got stacks of mail each day from people I had met at conferences," she said. Every officer also had a particular goal for the year. Morehead's goal was to compile information on what other states had done throughout the year, make it into a book and send it to all the states. "To be realistic about it, we can't change a lot in a year," she said. "But we do set goals. The nine officers trav- el and promote the organization, also." Morehead saw her most important role as being a goodwill ambassador for PBL. This meant that she had to represent the organization at all times. "Officers have a regulation blazer to wear for all official functions, and we have our name plates on them," she said. "I don't know how many times I got onto a plane with that blazer on. People would ask me what PBL was. "The national office encouraged us to dress professionally," she added. "This included our classes, because we 294 Classes ngela orehead There's no comparison for a well-noted job. were presenting an image of what PBI. is. Maintaining that image included sessions on public speaking and busi- ness eitquette. Among other things, Morehead said she was taught, "how to smile a lot and how to mingle." PBL became a family tradition for Morehead when her younger brother and sister became FBLA officers, and her sister continued in PBL as an offi- cer. "My sister and I got to go to con- ferences together," she said. "I en- joyed that." In her spare time, Morehead en- joyed reading, shopping, meeting peo- ple and traveling. "I love to shop," she said. "It's my major weakness. I actually stopped on my way to a major conference once just to buy shoes. Everyone at the conference made fun of my sister and I because together we had 18 pairs of shoes." Of course, being a national officer did have its drawbacks. For example, an incident during one state confer- ence was embarrassing for Morehead and another officer. "We were invited to be guests at a conference outside of our region, and they had a 50s dance and costume contest for the best-dressed guy and girl. As officers, we weren't going to participate because the national office liked to highlight the younger mem- bers. "We were trying to talk other peo- ple into it when we got stuck out there and both of us won! They wouldn't even listen when we told them we didn't want the trophies," Morehead said. Morehead was involved in many campus activities, including several honor societies. She was team leader for the Students of Free Enterprise. Being a national officer improved her leadership abilities, Morehead said. "I feel like I can make decisions now," she said. "And I'm not afraid to walk up to someone in an elevator, stick out my hand and say, 'I-li, I'm Angela More- head,' " she said. "I never would have done that before."l -Story by Angela Garrett -Photo by Mike Kiernan wl"'f"5pn'i it-f' Seniors 1- ELIZABETH BROOKS, dent. hygiene Ft.

Greenburg 297 Semorsfffrow - Give Todd Hamilton 5 R sexo i A voice that's radio active hen he was 5 years old, Todd Hamilton, a Glasgow senior, stuck a map up on his refrigerator and pre- tended he was a weatherman so he could announce tomorrow's forecast. "When I was little, all I wanted to do was be a weatherman," Hamilton said. "My mother thought I was a little weird, but she always encouraged me.', Hamilton's desire to announce the news never left him, although it later took a different turn. During his junior year at Glasgow High School, Hamilton became inter- ested in sports. He watched Hank Royse, the voice of the Glasgow Scot- ties, give the play-by-play for basket- ball games. "One evening I just asked Royse if 298 C lesser 41 132' ' I I could sit with him as he gave the play-by-playf, Hamilton said. "And from that day I knew I wanted to be a sports broadcaster." Hamilton put a foundation under his dream when he began to work with Wes Strader, the voice of the Hilltop- pers. Hamilton gave stats and radio cues for nearly every Hilltopper game Srrader announced. "Todd is one of the most talented young sports announcers I have been associated with," Strader said. "With a few good breaks, Hamilton will be very successful one of these days." Hamilton expressed affection for Strader, whom he considered to be one of the best sports announcers in the region. "Hank Royse got me started in sports broadcasting, but Strader ,de- serves a lot of credit for my success," Hamilton said. "Mr. and Mrs. Strader have become almost my adopted parents. They have kept an eye out for me since I've been at West- ern. They're just wonderful." Besides working with Strader, Hamilton did Bowling Green High School football commentary on radio station WBLG. He also announced during the girls' Sweet Sixteen high school basketball games when they were broadcast on D-98-WKCT. "Hamilton wants to be perfect in everything, and he wants to do every- thing himself," said Scott Morse, a Louisville junior and Hamilton's roommate. Hamilton said he tried hard to pre- pare for every game, no matter who was playing. "Some people just know the players as athletes," he said, "but I try to bring across the human aspect of the players. "I always prepare, prepare and pre- pare for a game," he said. "I do get nervous before a big game. I just take a few seconds before I go on the air and close my eyes to help me relax." Hamilton emphasized preparation partly because of the philosophy of one of his favorite announcers, Billy Packer. Packer, a veteran of broadcasting, once said, "Preparation is the only thing that separates a good broadcast- er from a bad one . . . The great ones are always well-prepared, and that is the bottom line." I -Story by Joe C. johnson -Photo by Royce Vibbert ' Wu is 1.0.-f pg he . . ,V ,. .

A crowd of zo or so gathered near the street corner, talking among themselves. Their attention was focused on two students, one male and one female, who were preparing to leave the city. As the pair said their goodbyes, members of the crowd waved and wished them well. Then the students climbed onto their bikes and pedaled down the street. They were ready to cycle across the country. For Jerry Gensheimer, a Louisville senior, and Debra Lane, a Bowling Green graduate student, a longtime dream became a reality. For a total of 31 days, from july I3 to Aug. 26, they pedaled across eight states and 2,500 miles from Bowling Green to San jose, Calif. "It fthe tripj had been a dream for me since I was a teenager," Gen- sheimer said. The pair began planning the trip as Setting the pace for a free-wheeling adventure friends, but after a few weeks they had started dating one another. This helped to make their trip even more meaningful. "People didn't believe we were go- ing to do it until the day we left," Lane said. The cyclists rode for about zo miles at a time before stopping to rest. They averaged 78 miles per day, riding for about eight hours each day. The pair carried 25 pounds of gear each. They rode by day and camped at night in a tent. When describing the adventure, Gensheimer called it, "freedom from worldly pressures, simplistic lifestyle, having everything you need on your back." However, the adventure was not without its problems. Each cyclist ex- perienced two flat tires, and rain poured down on the pair three differ- ent days, Gensheimer said. "It was hard emotionally and men- tally," he said. According to Lane, the two also had their tent destroyed in a storm. "It was the hardest thing I did in my life," Gensheimer said. He added that on the fifth day he had gotten sick from a stomach virus. The cyclists crossed the desert for two weeks from western Colorado to eastern California. "The most exciting day was when we covered 100 miles, went over the zoo-mile mark, and covered three sum- mits," Gensheimer said. "Each sum- mit was 6,ooo feet, and they were all in Nevada." The two students stopped in small towns along the way to stock up on food and water. Their favorite town was Crede, Colo., Lane said. "It was in the mountains, a little mining town," Lane said. "It was secluded, but it had everything the town needed." When Gensheimer and Lane be- gan organizing their trip, neither had ever ridden with the other. As a result, they followed their own methods of training for the trip. Gensheimer trained three days a week for four months, while Lane trained for almost IO months. The training included running and swim- ming, as well as riding their bikes. According to Gensheimer, the trip cost the cyclists about 3700 each, but he felt it was worth it. "There wasn't a point where I de- cided I wanted to stop," he said. If the pair agreed to take another trip, "it would definitely be in the opposite direction," Gensheimer said. "If we planned to go today, we'd go to Virginia Beach," Lane said. According to Lane, traveling with one person and spending such a great amount of time with him taught her a little more about life. "I learned how to relate to a hu- man," she said, "and learned how to keep up with a machine." -Story by Gina Kinslow -Photo by Andy Lyons if' . - W- .sf 1, :I -, - I fifty ' 4.-r'gQg..',.':S3-,..

Hurry past an enchanted black castle and come face to face with a knight. Nearby hovers a wizard, ready to cast a magic spell. Welcome to the world of 1.R.R. Tol- kien's Hobbits. No, this was not a fairy tale. But it was one wall mural that Lou- isville senior Charlene Clark, a techni- cal illustration major, painted for Western. The J.R.R. Tolkien scene, located on the eighth floor of Pearce-Ford Tower, was completed during Clark's 3 1 o C lasse: freshman year and was her first major project. After painting that wall mu- ral, she was contracted to do another on a two-story wall at the Top of The Tower restaurant in Pearce-Ford. The scene which is on the 26th floor of PFT consists of a two-story replica of PFT in the center, a life-size Big Red on one side and a hand hold- ing a red towel on the other side. "The painting of the tower, towel and Big Red was the most difficult," Clark said. Clark began painting in her junior and senior years of high school. "I went to vocational school for half the day and took commercial art classes. These were the only fartj classes I had until college," she said. But Clark had been exposed to both the art and the technical part of her major through her mother, who was a professional artist, and her fa- ther, who was a tool-and-dye maker. "I have the best of both careers," she said. Clark also painted a wall mural in the housing office and a free-standing life-size replica of Big Red that stands in the children's section of the College Heights Bookstore. Planning on becoming a technical artist and going into architectural ren- dering after her graduation, Clark said she did not like any kind of painting except wall murals. However, she en- joyed doing drawings in colored pen- cils, pen and ink and graphite pencils because it was "easier to get detail into the drawings." "I just feel clumsy with a paint- brush and canvas," Clark said. "It fpainting wall murals? is the one thing I know I can do well. I feel that every project I do, I get better," she said. "I always learn something different so when I do the next project, I do it right or do it better."

You might not find a job for years afterwards." Although she spoke of the risks, Monica Blackmon was determined to succeed. A 21-year-old senior from Lockport, N.Y., Blackmon first be- came interested in the field of per- forming arts when she was nine. Back in her hometown in New York, she watched graceful women on the television screen bending and swaying to classical themes, and she knew that she wanted to be just like them. It never even bothered her that most of the ballet dancers were white and she was black. "Dance is colorblind," Blackmon said. "I can work anywhere. If I don't work, it will be something like I'm too short. It won't be because I'm black." According to Blackmon, there are more black ballet companies than many people realize. Being black will not affect her chances of job success, she said, although other small details might. "Companies are built in different ways," Blackmon said. "You may not be tall enough or have the right color hair. You never know if you might get booted out because you have the wrong color eyes." Companies often change their rules, Blackmon said. Each prefers dancers who have a slightly different appearance. Some like voluptuous blondes, while others want tall, slender women, she added. "There are no guarantees in the dancing world," Blackmon said. Be- sides being judged on physical fea- tures, "there is always the chance of an injury putting you out." Blackmon did more than study bal- let. She also took classes in jazz and tap dancing. The variety was one of the things which appealed to her about her performing arts major, she said. Besides winning awards in dance competitions in New York, Blackmon also performed in several musicals at Western. I-Ier credits included "An Evening of Dance," "Cabaret," and "jesus Christ Superstarf, She was also an instructor for the Youth Dance Program and had ex- perience as a choreographer. According to Blackmon, a veteran of more than IO years of dancing, the activity did not always involve straight, formal routines. "Lots of strange things happen in dancing," she said. "For example, sometimes you miss your cue and for- get to come in." While performing at the Christmas Madrigal Feast in December, Black- mon had to demonstrate her ability to keep the show from coming to a dead halt. In one scene the servers could not find the wassail bowl which held a hot drink, and no one knew exactly what to do. "I started making up a dance," Blackmon said. "I didn't know what I was doing, and the dancers didn't, ei- ther. It was impromptu. But you have to be quick on your feet." Beverly Veenker, Monica's instruc- tor, had no doubts that her student would go far in performing arts. "If we're basing success on talent and drive and commitment, Monica will be successful," Veenker said. Blackmon rehearsed at least six hours every day with the company. In addition, she usually practiced two hours by herself. At times, the routine was so tough that she felt like giving up. "I'd go to Beverly and tell her, 'I'm changing my major to ag or geogra- phyf She keeps me hanging in there when I want to quit." Veenker agreed that it was difficult for dancers to keep their confidence levels up. But the coach said she was "not at all worried about whether she fBlackmonQ is going to be something. "I'm just waiting to find out what it is,H Veekner said. According to Blackmon, she was always a strong jazz and tap dancer, but her weakness was ballet. "My coach pounded ballet into my head. I hate pointe shoes, but she's made me a stronger ballet dancer be- cause I have to dance with them." Pointe shoes are worn to help a ballet dancer balance her body on the extreme tip of the toes. Blackmon felt that her practice with them boosted her self confidence. "Now I don't have to worry about anything when I go into an audition," she said. If she had to give advice to would- be dancers, Blackmon said that above all, she would tell them to stick with it. "It will be the toughest thing you ever encountered," she said. "It will tear you apart sometimes. But if you can stick with it, you will be like a lump of coal that has been turned into a diamond."

'P-ef' JUNIOR L.. C C little pride will go a long, long way," was the slogan of Iu- nior Achievement, an educational pro- gram that taught high school students the basics of business. Anne Zoellner, a Bowling Green sophomore, was proud to join JA when she was a high school junior, and since then, has gone a long, long Way. "I didn't know I would get this involved," said Zoellner, who was an adviser and manager at the JA center on some meeting nights. The high school students were guided by advisers who were usually 3 18 C Mises ACI-IIEVE local business people, but Bowling Green JA welcomed college students to be advisers, too. With the other advisers and center managers being older, local business- men, Zoellner said that her age gave her a little edge over the rest. "I am more of a comrade to the achievers," she said. One tough part about it, Zoellner said, was enforcing the rules to people not much younger than she. "Some kids will think I am an ogre forever," she said. In JA, high school students had the opportunity to establish their own companies. They bought materials, made products and sold them while paying salaries and commissions the way a real company would do. The first company Zoellner ad- vised won best company of the year locally. Her involvement in JA wasn't limited to the local chapter. Zoellner had been a student counselor at the National Junior Achievers Confer- ence QNAJACJ for the two previous years. The NAJAC was held at Indiana University and about 2,500 junior Achievers from all over the country attended. Aside from being involved in the JA high school program, Zoellner taught business basics, an educational program helping sixth graders to learn about business in four steps. All of our JA experience influenced Zoellner. She said that she planned to change her major to a more business- related field. Zoellner said that she had also learned two other things from her ex- perience with the achievers: how to listen and how to have patience.

Swigert, a 23- year-old junior from Shelbyville, was a bartender at Midtown-Holidome's Kona Kai Lounge. "It's life in the real world, dealing with real people," Swigert said. Swigert learned to tend bar three years earlier when he began working at Rafferty's Restaurant and Bar. New bartenders at Rafferty's were taught the basics for one week, then contin- ued to learn on their own. Swigert went from Rafferty's to Emma's Cantina, and then moved to the Parakeet Cafe and Bar before be- ing employed at the Kona Kai. Ac- cording to Swigert, bartenders changed jobs for many reasons. The most obvious motive was bet- ter pay, but "the main reason is some places start asking more from you," he said. "You have to ask yourself, 'Do I want to work harder at this or stay in school and work harder at that Swigert chose to work hard at both college and bartending. Aside from carrying a full course load, he worked 25 to 35 hours a week at the Kona Kai. 'P7 !! 3 2 2 C lanes Variety was the key reason Swigert enjoyed his work at the Kona Kai. The people who came into the lounge were a mixture of out-of-town guests at the Holidome, college students and local businessmen. "A bartender's favorite kind of cus- tomer is one that tips," he said. Not only did the lounge offer an opportunity to meet an interesting as- sortment of people, but it also pro- vided a variety of entertainment to break the monotony. For example, The Flying Monkees band played the lounge three nights a week, and during football season, ball- games were shown on a large-screen TV on Monday nights. Although he enjoyed bartending, Swigert didn't plan to make a career of it. "Once I'm out of school," he said, "I hope to never have to set foot be- hind a bar again." Instead, the psychology major hoped to go to graduate school with the intention of becoming either a counselor or a psychologist with a pri- vate practice. Bartending helped Swigert put what he learned in his psychology classes to practical use. He listened to and observed the people who came into the Kona Kai to try and identify any problems which may have brought them there. "Usually the problem is being in a bar in the first place," he said. "If you're depressed, don't go near a bar." Bartending not only benefitted Swigert in his major, but also in his personal life. He met both of his roommates through bartending. Donald Gay, a senior from Louis- ville, was bartending at Rafferty's when Swigert began the training pro- gram there. "He QGayj helped me out," Swi- gert said. "He trained me, basically." Swigert's other roommate, Kevin O'Bryan, a senior from Auburn, N.Y., also worked at Rafferty's when Swigert started work there. However, O'Bryan worked as a waiter then. "Don and I transformed him into a bartender, too," Swigert said. "He works at Mariah's now." Overall, Swigert had a positive feel- ing about his bartending experiences. "It's rewarding, obviously finan- cially," he said, "but it is also a good growth experience because you get away from college life."

As a broadcasting major, Glasgow junior Mary Ann Borders kept in tune with her future career by working on the air and behind the scenes part time at three radio sta- tions. "I used to work full time, but school just got in the way," Borders said. Borders worked as a production as- sistant and disc jockey at WKRX, Western's radio station, as well as working at WKCT and WDNS QD- 98j-two Bowling Green radio sta- tions. "I do weather and news at 98," Borders said. "But at KCT I actually jock." In addition to her air time at 58-X QWKRXQ, Borders' work also in- volved recording commercials, public service announcements and promo- tions. "I was working there Q58-XJ be- cause it's for class," she said. "I thought it would be really great, so I asked to be on staff." Borders' interest in radio began in high school. "From the eighth grade to my ju- nior year, I was going to be a meteo- rologist," she said. But involvement in Junior Achieve- ment during high school turned her on to radio. Through JA, Borders got her first job on the air-a one-hour shift on Wednesday nights on WOVO in Glasgow. "That's when I decided I wanted to major in radio," she said. The summer after graduating from high school, Borders landed a part- time job as a DJ at WSMI in Cave City. "My sister-in-law needed some part-time help there. She said, 'We need someone with experience' " Experience in radio before and dur- ing college gave Borders ideas of what she would like to do with her career. "My ambition has always been to live in Colorado," she said. "I'd like to start my own station there or get my masters and teach broadcasting," she added. Although Borders preferred own- ing a station or teaching, jockeying was not out of the question. "I wouldn't mind being a profes- sional DJ, but you have to be really good to make money at it," she said. Borders often found herself listen- ing to other disc jockeys. "People can't stand to ride in the car with me because I'm always flip- ping the dial. "It's not the music I'm listening to," Borders said. "It's the jock." Television, however, was not in Borders' future. "That's a dirty word. I'd ban televi- sion if I could," she said. "I was in radio and TV, but then I took one TV course and I hated TV." Having had a good beginning in radio, Borders' future time on the air- waves could be summed up in one word.

As a matter of fact, she made more than loo babies. And, if she were fast, it took her less than a day to make each one. When she was a high school sopho- more, Wolford, a Burnside junior, was taught how by her aunt. "Some people fix cars, I make ba- bies," Wolford said. Actually, Wolford's hobby was making dolls that look something like Cabbage Patch Kids. "I call them my babies," she said of the dolls. When she first started making them, Wolford used a pattern but soon was depending on her own cre- 3 2 8 Classes ativity. She made the dolls unique by making the face, arms and hair differ- ent on each doll. But her creativity did not always stop there. "I've made a tiny one-an infant doll, and I've made a boy doll with all the moving parts," she said. It usually took Wolford eight to I2 hours to finish the main portion of a doll. "The curls in the hair take six hours more," she said. "I crochet the curls so they take more time." When finished, she presented the dolls to the recipients with a birth certificate and her signature on the bottom of one foot of the doll. On the foot, Wolford put her name and the day the doll was "born." The birth certificates included all the usual in- formation. "I put fon the certificatesj the weight, length, and when and where they were born. The place of birth is usually Wolford Memorial Hospital," she said. Being an expert of sorts on doll making, Wolford gave speeches on it during high school. "It caught everyone's attention in high school when I said, 'l-li, my speech is on making babies.' " On several occasions the "babies" caused rather humorous situations for their designer. Several times her friends thought she was pregnant when they walked into her room and saw baby clothes and diapers lying around. "Once when I was walking through the St. Louis airport with my dolls, bunches of people kept stopping and telling me how cute my babies were," Wolford said. "A lot of people don't believe that I make them," she said. "They always think I bought them." Either way, most them adorable.l people found -Story by Rob McCracken -Photo by Kathy Forrester Juniors -- KIMBERLY PEARSON, Elkton GINA PETTY, Lexington JAMES PITTMAN, Harrodsburg DEBBIE POE, Hopkinsville LAURA POLLOCK, Brandenburg SHERRY PONTRICH, Louisville SHIRLEY PONTRICH, Louisville JODI PORTMAN, Hendersonville RHONDA POWELL, Franklin MELISSA PRITOKA, Princeton RONALD REDMON, Louisville VICKY REYNOLDS, Horse Cave SONYA RICHARDSON, Hardyville ANGELA RIEDLEY, Louisville MARK RISEN, Greensburg CECILLIA ROBEY, Franklin JIM ROGERS, Hopkinsville SHARON ROGERS, Hopkinsville JULIE ROSS, Terre Haute, Ind.

And we were wise enough not to schedule a class in Thompson Com- plex right after a class in the College of Education Building.

"My life is going to be based on itf' The summer camp, designed for the handicapped and mentally retard- ed, made Garden appreciate what it meant to not be handicapped. "I always wanted to be special . . . but all they Qthe campersj want is to be themselves," the Bowling Green sophomore said. Garden was a counselor in 1985 at Camp Green Shores, located in the Breckinridge County district of McDaniels. In addition, he was a life- guard the following summer at Camp Kysoc in Carrollton. teve G ard e n Making a summer special is all in a day's work. "I was a little apprehensive at first," he said. "I had to learn to love this." Garden now believes that working with "special populations should be a mandatory, hands-on experience for everybody." "That area of education is really overlooked," he said. These kids are gifted, talented, and need special at- tention. "How to treat them is easy-treat them like anyone else," he said. The hard part, according to Gar- den, was the personal care of the campers. "You do things you never thought you would," he said. "You change a lot of diapers and feed a lot of kids." While at the camp, Garden had to help the children eat, dress and move around. The thing that took the long- est to overcome, he said, was helping the campers with personal hygiene. "That's what separates the men from the boys," he said with a laugh. But all his hard work paid off, he said. "Just being able to be with them was reward enough," Garden said. "It's all they live for." Although he said the experience was emotionally draining, Garden felt he had learned from it. "After this, there is nothing emo- tionally that I can't go through," he said. The camp, owned by the Kentucky Easter Seal Corp., provided an escape for the retarded and the handicapped and helped them to feel more secure. It did not matter how old they were or which disability they had. The good times shared were not only for the campers. "Our staff was just like family," Garden said about the other camp per- sonnel. "There's grudges and summer loves, some you want to keep in con- tact with, and others you never want to see again." But the best part about the sum- mer, Garden said, was the intimate feeling between himself and the camp- ers. "I just wanted to make them feel special," he said, "and feel normal."

The call was answered by the catapulting of a clay pi- geon into the air. Then a shot. As the pieces of the target hit the ground, another point was marked for David Claycomb's team with the League of Kentucky Sportsmen's trap shoot contest. Claycomb, a Columbia sophomore, had been to many such contests before and was a veteran of many hours of working with guns. "I guess I've been shooting since I've been able to handle them," he said. Claycomb got involved with guns because it was a common thing to do 338 Classes where he was raised, he said. "Around home, most people are interested in it," he said. Claycomb worked at a dairy farm where he took care of the animals' nutritional needs and did field work when needed. During his spare time, he enjoyed the membership of both the Western Kentucky Gun Club and the 4-H Gun Club. The past two years, he had been to state competition where his team won the championship both times. Claycomb often went hunting when he was home. He hunted for deer and rabbit, but enjoyed pursuing squirrels the best. He also participated in a mule deer and antelope hunt in Wyoming. He said that if the oppor- tunity arose again, he would definitely take advantage of it and go. Claycomb had a love for guns and prided himself on developing the proper habits for handling them. "It's not the gun, but the person behind it," he said. Claycomb's interest in guns led him to purchase a reloading press. The purpose of this device was to reuse the same shells after they had been shot. "I save a lot of money this way," he said. He bought the gun powder, wad and shots, and, after collecting the used shells, he reloaded them with the correct amount of powder and shot to restore the shell to a useable form. Claycomb hoped to be able to at- tend more championships during his next year as a member of the 4-H Gun Club. After leaving the club, though, he said he would continue to be active in the sport, possibly even becoming a gun coach for the club. He advised others who wanted to learn how to use guns to know the safeties of gun handling. He also sug- gested that people "know the laws" concerning guns. "The more people know about guns," he said, "the better off we'll be."

The word may bring to mind a backstage room full of makeup art- ists blotting lipstick and sweeping blush across pale cheeks. Beautiful girls stare at themselves in three-way mirrors, while a flurry of people hand them the latest fashions and with mouthfuls of pins begin fitting the models to perfect them. Since Louisville sophomore Bridgit Evans modeled for Cosmo-Casablanca modeling agency, a person would think she had an entire staff working to make her beautiful. But modeling for Evans wasn't quite as glamorous as it seemed. "When I first started with an agen- cy," she said, "I spent every weekend for three or four months going to classes learning how to model and pre- pare for the shoot." Her typical assignment began at home. Substituting her own bedroom as a dressing room, Evans applied her own makeup and chose which outfit she would wear before she arrived at the location. The agency provided her with the training and accessibility, but it did not provide the props needed to por- tray her modeling role. Evans had to buy her own wardrobe and accessories. As a result, she had a considerable amount of money invested in her field. But Evans didn't seem to mind be- cause "these investments determine whether or not I really make it," she said. Evans began modeling after her un- cle mentioned the idea when she was I2 years old. She first began her work with Alix Adams, then received a scholarship to study at the Barbizon School for mod- eling. Evans later became interested in Cosmo-Casablanca. Modeling classes werenlt that dif- ferent from her classes at Western, Evans said. One major similarity was having to study at home. "I guess you could call it home- work," Evans said. "I had to practice walking and posing in front of a mir- rorf' Evans' graduation from Cosmo-Ca- sablanca could be called her most ex- citing job, she said. The graduation was an actual runway modeling exer- cise. Agents from Paris, France and other fashion centers attended the ceremony. Modeling classes had prepared Ev- ans for more than just how to care for her appearance. Before leaving her home, she had to review all the information provided by the agency regarding the client, location, and time of her next assign- ment. The minute she walked onto the set, Evans had to know everything necessary in order to make the ap- pointment successful. "On my last assignment I had to present myself as a prep student," Ev- ans said. "I had to become a prep student in every way because the cam- era can always tell if I don't come across in the correct mannerfl When she actually arrived at the location and met with the client, pho- tographer and assistant, Evans began what most people saw as the primary part of a modeling career - posing in front of the camera. "The relationship between me and the camera is a personal one," Evans said. "Photographers who help me de- velop are the best ones to work with. My present photographer wants me to come in, do my job and leave. I don't like that attitude at all," she said. l-ler dream modeling experience would be runway modeling in Paris. But she would also like acting some- time in the future. "I really like runway modeling bet- ter," Evans said. "Being on stage in front of the crowd gives me a famous feeling." Evans planned to continue model- ing, along with pursuing a job with her broadcasting major. She didn't consider herself any more beautiful than other people. "It's just a face," Evans said. "It's just the way I lookf' "I guess anyone could do it if they were trained," she said, "but you have to like what you are doing or you won't be any good."

It started centuries ago, but with today's technology, it seemed many people didn't have the time to spend on woodcarving. When one thinks of a woodcarving shop, certain things may come to mind: blocks of wood standing in the corners, blades, drills, sawdust on the floor and the smell of it in the air, and perhaps an old wood stove in the cen- ter of it all. A person wouldn't be disappointed if he walked into the shop of Brent Steenbergen, a Fountain Run sopho- more. "I started fwoodcarvingj when I was in about the eighth grade. I got bored one winter when it was snowing and we couldn't go to school, so I started whittling to pass the time," he said. This interest led Steenbergen to lo- cal and state competitions in which he eventually won several ribbons for his woodcarvings. Since beginning the craft, Steen- bergen had completed approximately 30 pieces, about zo of which he had given away. "Most of the time I don't make any woodcarvings to keep for myself," he said. "I usually have the intention to give them away when I start them." The carvings Steenbergen had giv- en away included a life-size duck with all of the feathers carved in, a rocking horse with a yarn mane and tail, and other smaller objects such as squirrels and rabbits. "I really like the rocking horse," he said. "It's the biggest carving I've ever done." The rocking horse weighed about 25 pounds and included 30 separate pieces of wood that had been pegged together. Steenbergen didn't use any nails or screws. He also made a fiddle which was Brent Steenbergen He's carving a piece of the past. one of the most difficult projects, he said. Steenbergen used four different woods: sugar maple, apple, wild cherry and pine. Each one helped to add to the sound of the instrument. These various woods also added their own color or delicate detail to the hand- made fiddle. "It was mainly trial and error . . . just an experiment," he said. "I re- searched the fiddle and took my mea- surements from one I got in the house. It's very tedious to get everything the same fproportionalj. "I probably spend more time on research than I do on the actual work," he said. Steenbergen researched all of his carvings mainly by observing how the actual object had been made. His next big project was to carve a horse-drawn sled, and he was in the process of studying them. "I really like the beginning fof a projectjf' he said. "I never really know what I'm making . . . There are so many things you can do, so many things it can be. "You see your image in the wood and then just start to take off the wood on the outside," he said. "And if I mess it up, I can always change it in some way to make it something differ- ent." By woodcarving, Steenbergen tried to bring a part of the past to the present. I-Ie made dough bowls, butter molds and rolling pins for extra mon- ey. A dough bowl, an oblong-shaped bowl about two feet long and three inches deep, was used to hold the flour when kneading dough. "If someone didn't keep up old tra- ditions, they would die out," he said. "The same thing goes for hand carv- ings. If someone doesn't keep it up, people will forget how it was done."

We were scared, anxious, nervous or unsure, even after that big pep talk we had given ourselves the night before we moved to school. It was a new experience that we would never forget. In one year of school, we grew more as a person than we had ever thought possible. But whether we had come to school to grow up or to learn, by the end of our first year we realized that a little of both had happened.

For the past two summers, Mary Wilson, a freshman from Bards- town, and her parents have taken part in "The Stephen Foster Story." This popular musical was thought to be the longest-running outdoor dra- ma in the nation. It told the story of the life of Stephen Foster, writer of such songs as "Oh! Susanna," "I Dream of Jeannie," and "My Old Kentucky Home." The show was performed in Bard- stown at an amphitheater near My Old Kentucky Home, Foster's former home. The women dressed Southern style in hoop dresses and the men sported tails and top hats. "I auditioned for the show because I thought it would be a good job for the summer," Wilson said. M-.N 348 Claris: Wilson was a member of the chorus in "The Stephen Foster Story." Her performance included singing and dancing. "You really get to know what the business is likef' she said. "I got a chance to perform and know how professionals work." Wilson's parents played the parts of Stephen Foster's in-laws. Both par- ents had been involved with the out- door drama for several years. Wilson had spent two summers performing in the show. "My first summer, 'The Stephen Foster Story' went to Japan," Wilson said. It was the first time the original musical had been performed outside of Bardstown. Cast members traveled to three different cities in Japan and performed in four theaters there. According to Wilson, the perfor- mances were in English, but the actors and actresses had to learn enough Jap- anese, such as the words for "please" and "thank you," to make their way around the cities. Although she was a member of the cast along with her parents, "I really wasn't around them much," Wilson said. Her parents may have been on stage with her, but when it came time for dressing rooms, rehearsals, and performances, the family members were not often together. There were only three other mem- bers of the musical who were Wilson's age. Most of the others were gradu- ates and some were from the Kentucky Opera. She met many of the cast members through her parents. Wilson had former community theater work, along with major roles in high school plays. One of her biggest parts was the starring role of Maria in "The Sound of Music." Wilson was majoring in vocal music performance. While at Western, she took part in the University Choir and Show Choir. Wilson also had won various vocal awards. 'Tm headed more toward opera, but until my voice matures, I'll stay with theater," she said. Wilson said she enjoyed her sum- mers of performing in the outdoor musical. "It fthe dramaj was a lot of hard work, but fun," Wilson said. Auditions for the 1987 drama were in February and Wilson planned to go back.

But not for Eddie Burks, a Glasgow freshman, who held the high office for the Future Farmers of America. Burks, an animal science major, was the Eastern region representative for the American junior Simmental Asso- ciation trustees. Burks .gboi Eddie This man is breeding success by steering the FFA in the right direction. The trustees consisted of four re- gions and 16 representatives who set up contests and shows for Simmental cattle, a breed originating in France. "It's been within I5 years that the breed was picked up and an interest to have shows developed," Burks said. Burks began his position on the board of trustees in July, 1986, and was to serve as a member for two years. He was planning to retire as state FFA vice president in June 1987. The cattle shows emphasized the Simmental breed and taught skills at the same time. Tests were given to quiz the indi- vidual on his knowledge of the Sim- mental breed, including a judging con- test, herdsman quiz, sire summary quiz, speaking contest and a show- manship contest. A basic heifer show was also designed to see how much contestants knew about the animal. The overall winner at the national show received a gold belt buckle. During the Junior National Cattle Show, Burks placed fourth out of 269 participants. He was second during the Eastern region show in West Vir- ginia the year before. Depsite his responsibilities, Burks said his positions didn't take up that much time. "FFA took up a lot of time in spring, and the midwinter fboardj conference took time," he said. Burks flew to Kansas City, Mo., the day after Christmas for the confer- ence. He also had to be in Denver, Colo., during the first week of the 1987 spring semester for the National Western Stock Show. Experience was the main reason Burks joined FFA. Founded in 1928 as a national orga- nization, FFA had over 430,000 mem- bers in the 50 states and Puerto Rico. The state chapter started in 1930 and grew to include 14,000 members in 150 chapters. "They try to train young people in ag fwhich is, not necessarily farm- ing," Burks said. "Over zoo careers exist in the field, and out of 25 percent of the American workforce, only two percent are actu- ally farmers," Burks added. However, an older brother in FFA and a cousin who was a state FFA officer made it traditional, too. "It's kind of a family thing," he said. Burks said he had no intention of running for national office for several reasons. He had his state farming degree but would have to get his American farming degree, he said. This was something he didn't plan to do. Secondly, if he did make it to a national position, Burks would have to drop out of school for a year to travel with the FFA, he said. Burks did not wish to do this because he hoped to graduate in four years. From helping run two major agri- cultural organizations to working on his own farm, Burks gained a great deal of experience, both in the actual world of farming and the large world of agricultural business. With this experience, he planned to raise the Simmental breed of cattle on his 308-acre farm he owned be- tween Glasgow and Smith's Grove.l -Story by Angela Garrett -Photo by Cassondra Murray Freshmen ?

Tensions are eased as she lets her fingers do the walking- hite sheets lay draped over a bed while soft- colored lights made shadows on the walls of the small room. A clinical atmosphere, like that found in a physician's office, pervaded the area. R This room was the small home stu- dio in Brentwood, Tenn., where Ka- ren Reasons welcomed her clients when they wished to have a massage. "When I bring a person into the room, I try to make them feel comfort- able," the freshman said. "I always ask them if they have ever had a message and tell them what is normal in doing one. "I trys to make the surroundings clinical and pharmaceutical," she add- ed. Growing up massaging the backs of her family members sparked Reasons' interest in becoming a masseuse. "The more I did it, the more they said, 'I-Iey, you're pretty good.' So I checked it out and sure enough, I was!" she said. Reasons began messaging under the training of Judy Mealy, a Licensed Therapeutic Masseuse QLTMJ, in April 1986. She sent out gift certifi- cates, flyers and business cards to friends and acquaintances in May. Many masseuses were not licensed. "You do not have to have a license to practice," Reasons said. "But it's always helpful. Obviously, the prob- ability of having more patients is greater when you have a license. "I may try to get a license in the future-maybe after graduation," she said. Being a masseuse was not the only interesting aspect about the 18 year old. Reasons was also a member-of the Spirit Dancers. "I've taken gymnastics for years," she said. "It's helpful to be limber for some of the dances. 'Tm proud to be on the team. It's lots of fun," she said. "It meant a lot to be chosen." The advertising major was also in- volved with the Young Life program at Bowling Green High School. "College leaders fin Young Life, try to make an impression to high school students and try showing them that it's fun to be a Christian," she said. Reasons said that members of the program "try to be a friend to the kids." Reasons felt showing concem for the other people was important mis- sion in life. This concern was revealed in the way she treated her masseuse clients. "Making them feel comfortable- that's most important," she said. "If they aren't, then likely they won't come back."l - -Story by Kelly Twyman -Photo by james Borcnuck Freshmen 1 K., fl -'P 357 I.

"We were pillow fighting, and I told him to quit," Bailey said. "I really didnit mean to do it, but I kicked him in the eye. It was just a natural reflex." Bailey, a Sparta freshman, was a second degree blackbelt in karate and was first in her division in Kentucky. The female karate fighter packed a powerful kick. "We had to take my boyfriend to the hospital," she said. "His eye swelled up as big as a baseball." Having started karate at age 5 un- der the coaching of her father, Bailey had a lot of practice at kicking. "My Dad runs a karate studio and, like all little kids, I imitated the people around me," she said. Bailey's entire family was accom- plished in karate. Her mother, father, brother, and sister were also blackbelts, while her youngest sister was training in karate. Bailey's stepmother and a friend, Yolanda Crist, also trained under her father. Crist, a Warsaw freshman, was also a Western student. "He's stricter on me, Mom, and Yolanda," Bailey said. "He says, 'You guys have talent.' He pushes us hard- er. "My stepmother's my biggest com- petition though," Bailey said. "She beats me up constantly fin competi- tionl. She bust my lip three weeks ago, but I won." The cuts and bruises stayed on the mats, though, she said. "There's no personal conflict there at all. After we leave, it's over." Keeping in shape for competition kept Bailey busy three days a week. She and a friend trained together in Diddle Arena, but school sometimes got in the way, she said. At times, training also interfered with her social life. I "If you're out doing something with someone, it's hard to say, 'No, I have to go do this tonightf " "It's worth it in the end, but when you're in there sweating, you're not sure," she said. A sense of accomplishment and a feeling of confidence made it worth- while for Bailey. "I know I can walk from FAC to my dorm at night without having to worry," she said. Her last boyfriend knew that. I ---Stow by Rob McCracken -Photo by Mike Kiernam Melissa Bailey She's found a way to get her kicks. 360 Classes f 'f' I f f . Q Q.- ..

We were two weeks into spring when the second snowfall of the year fell and caught us all by surprise. As things started winding down, we worried about summer jobs, resumes and graduation. Classes got harder as finals ap- proached, and everyone was ex- posed to spring fever. We took time from classes to lie out and get some sun. The warm days raised our spirits and kept us go- ing till summer. But with thoughts of summer, leaving friends behind was on our minds, also. No matter how much we wanted to stop for a while, time continued on, and so did we. Plans were made, jobs were found and we started to feel bet- ter about what we were going to do over the summer months. Freshmen, sophomores and ju- niors made plans to see friends the next year. Seniors collected addresses, made final plans and tried on graduation gowns. As time passed and the end of the year approached, friends laughed and cried as goodbyes were said. We took pictures to mark the day and made promises to keep in touch. Graduation was the final de- gree. Many emotions were ex- pressed as tears were shed for the memories that we left behind. 1 L I 'li C g ...Mike Kia-nan Behind the Agriculture Center, an early spring sun settles After running one mile to warm up, Bellevue senior Steve Clark beyond four silos.

The exposure we re- ceived from the diversity on cam- pus helped us to develop new in- sights and views of the world around us. Our parents hardly recognized us after our first year in college. New experiences altered our atti- tudes and beliefs and gave us a degree of independence we hadn't found at home. OAR seemed like years ago, but, for many, graduation was too far away to think about yet. We groped for a major and wished we knew what we wanted to do with our lives. f But by graduation, we had re- flected on how the exposure to college had changed us. After years of preparation, we were be- ing thrust into the real world and away from the safety of the hill. We had grown close to the hill, and, even though we complained of how hard it was to walk to classes, we knew that we would miss this place after we left. But there was one consolation-we still had our memories. PRESENT DS T ES?
