The buildings 

An incredible lack of identity is 
conjured up as the confusing mass of 
brick, glass, cement and grass pass the 
eye of the objective beholder. Lifeless 
minds meet to form lifeless structures 
which house lifeless volumes of 

Rockwell Hall library, newly remo- 
deled dwelling of KSU's adminis- 
trators rises out of the swamplands of 
front campus. 

Circling Rockwell, Franklin, 
McGilvery, on top of the hill, Kent, 

Lowry, down the hill, Moulton, Mer- 
rill and a stoplight. Main St. 

Right at the next light, Terrace 
Drive, old front campus gives way to 
glass jutting wings and L-shapes of 
Terrace, Verder, Dunbar and Prentice 
dormitories. On the left a shrub and 
tree surrounded hill — plopped in the 
middle — the President's cottage. 

Up Terrace Drive antique Engleman 
Hall, ivy-covered, courtyard en- 
hanced, facing the commons and circl- 
ing back to connect itself to itself and 

make the Old Student Union . . . New 
Black Student Union . . . houses In- 
stitute for African American Affairs. 

Down closer to Main St. — match- 
box drab efficiency of the Education 
Building (White Hall), parking, ramps, 
stairs and car paths. 

Looking toward the middle of 
campus past the heating plant, mag- 
nificance of expressions, lines and 
angles and blue-white glass ceilings 
house KSU art and lie next to an art 
building of a different kind, industri- 

alized Van Deusen Hall. 

Across Terrace Drive, parking lots 
and sidewalks, architectural elo- 
quence is embodied in the Business 
Administration Building with rose-col- 
ored panels, unique ultra-modern 
matchbox, hidden stairways and open 
glass offices. Satterfield, across Por- 
tage Drive, two connected rectangles 
form an L, leading on one side to 
parking and more parking, on another 
Summit Road and towards the middle 
of campus. Bowman Hall. 

Long rectangle, holds classrooms, 
offices, lecture halls, Bowman Hall, on 
whose middle campus side lies run- 
down and ragged, beautiful, aged and 
decrepit Stopher Hall. Unevenly 
matched with Lake-Olson and John- 
son, they form an odd quad. East of 
Lake-Olson, memorable Memorial 
Gym is a matchbox, also. 

A hill in the middle of campus, with 
trees, pagoda, metal sculptures sur- 
round Taylor Hall . . . lights gleaming 
into the night, forever. Glass top, 

matchbox bottom, two types of beauty 
together in campus middle. 

Out the front doors, east across 
baseball fields and tennis courts, 
gravel parking lot and open field, Tri- 
Towers, cracked and peeling paint 
lend style to the landscape. 

Through the trees on its north side, 
Music and Speech, theaters, antennas, 
music and radio towers. Moving west.

Nixson Hall, a box of light brown 
brick stands alone. 

Southeast through parking lots, 
trees, fields stands Eastway (Broad- 
way), a city in itself; billiards, bowling 
. . . recreation . . . snack bar, dormitory 
rooms and next door — Korb Hall 
hotel, counseling, accommodations, in- 
formation and old girls' dormitory. 

Across a parking lot to the east. 
Twin Towers, eight story skyscraping 
dorm, suites and halls, further east 
across a field is Loop Road. 

Before Loop Road on Eastway 
Drive, DSU Health Center, miniature 
hospital, complete with ambulance, 
pharmacy, wards, and forms to fill out 
and waiting. 

Between hospital and Loop Road, 
Ice Arena, two connected stone boxes, 
entertainment, recreation and food 
warmed by a fireplace. 

Two small groupings, dorms, a new 
concept in living, open space, plazas, 
surrounding fields, parking . . . sub- 
urbs . . . across Rhodes Road is 


Further out a monstrous field, en- 
circled by seats, the stadium, plenty of 
parking, shuttle to campus. Reaching 
to the south stretches of campus, 
apartments, married students, Aller- 
ton. Inexpensive bedrooms, kitchen, 
bath, living is for families attending 

From Rhodes Road a long sidewalk 
like a stairway leads past tennis 
courts, through a clump of trees, park- 
ing to Smith, Williams, Cunningham, 

cold, science homes, shaped in- 
distinguishable from one another. 

Hovering over all, tallest, KSU li- 
brary — 12 stories of papers, period- 
icals, knowledgeable sources, book- 
shelves and their inhabitants acts as a 
beacon marking the incredible struc- 
ture of the Center of Students plaza. 

Awesome in its lines and curves, 
brick sidewalks and plastic gleaming 
lights dipping and revealing carefully 
placed stones forming Center of Stu- 
dents stone fountain . . . amazing. 

Next to parking lot, outside Center 
of Students, glass panels enclose ben- 
ches, information, bus routes and 
clock and support an awesome stone 
ledge hung over steps to buses, guard- 
ing students from rain, wind and cold. 

Structure, confusing, con- 
glomeration of wood, brick and glass 
is only made meaningful upon the 
presence of the life blood of KSU — its 
student faculty inhabitants.

The students, faculty and staff

Like blood cells surging through 
veins, students, faculty and staff 
stream through the arterial corridors 
of KSU every year. Without them 
there would be only dead stone, steel 
and glass. With them KSU becomes a 
growing, breathing, alive and kicking 

Students pour into rooms off- 
campus and on, bringing clothes, 
stereos and little pieces of home. 
Jungles of wandering jews, spiders 
and pepperomia plants fill the rooms 
while posters clutter the walls. Each 
room expresses identity as the student 
inhabitant continues to seek it. 

Faculty members return to guide the 
students' search. Books full of all 
possible knowledge are dusted off. 

More than books, faculty members 
bring new experiences and ideas for 
the fresh crop of faces in lecture hall. 
First, eyes alight with enthusiasm, 
they exchange thoughts with 
colleagues over gulps of coffee. 

Staff members don't enjoy such 
ceremonious returns. They come in 
clean, pressed uniforms to attend to 
the business of keeping the university 
running. They are not the educators or 
the learners, and their importance 
goes largely unnoticed. 

After a Drop/Add session in Wills 
Gym students feel unimportant too. 
Numbers — id numbers, credit hours, 
maximum class size, course numbers, 
section numbers — take precedence. 
Students drop trance-like before a 

wall of section numbers, their eyes 
searching for the exact one. After five 
minutes of myopic staring they head 
for the departmental line and pray. 
Finally, they try to cajole and curse 
the professor behind the table to 
squeeze "just one more" on the roster. 
Many attempts are unsuccessful. Profs 
come pre-recorded, "That section is 
filled ... try coming back next 
Saturday for final registration . . . I'm 
sorry." The students are sorrier. 

Somehow, things work out. 
Schedules are filled; registration fees 
are paid. Students head "home", then 
meet friends over pizzas and beers 
and catch up on a summer-full of 
adventures. Professors head back to 
offices with class rosters and newly 

dittoed syllabi under their arms, then 
head home to dinners while the staff 
keeps the university running. 

Newness of routine is evident in red 
eyes and tired faces, but there is no 
time to be lazy. Right away, there are 
texts to buy and study. The 
bookstores are packed tightly, full of 
students with hungry minds. For 
hungry mouths there are refrigerators 
to rent, drag back to the dorm, and fill 
with munchies. Professors have 
lectures to plan and office hours to 
decide upon. For staff workers there 
are roads to repair, bushes to trim and 
rooms to clean. School hasn't officially 
started and already everyone is busy. 

Morning comes — the first day of 
class. Students, faculty and staff rise

early in different corners of the 
community and head to their 
respective places. 

Lecture A Bowman fills up quickly 
with freshman faces for history and 
psychology classes. They scribble 
notes incessantly, hoping to 
understand them later. 

Other students stride confidently 
into the Business Administration 
Building with briefcases, slide rules 
and pocket calculators in hand. 
Confidence quickly evaporates as 
scribbled computations cover 

In Satterfield frustrations arise from 
learning French accents after three 
years of Spanish. Even one's native 
language requires work in English 

and chemistry 
consuming and 

hour squinting 
of microscopes, 
the brain 


Biology, physics, 
classes are time 
difficult. After an 
down the throats 
jotting notes and diagrams, 
is ready for a rest. 

Physical education classes offer a 
chance to work the muscles as well as 
the mind. Classes range from dance, to 
paddleball, to gymnastics. Many 
require constant practice to condition 
the body. Gym lights burn late into 
the night. 

Other buildings do not sleep. Fourth 
floor Taylor Hall is always bright, full 
of architects striving to finish one 
more project. Downstairs, journalism 
students battle deadlines. "I need 

copy, I need art!" screams a Stater 
editor. Next door, editors, writers and 
photographers work under harsh 
flourescent lights and the constant 
night of darkrooms to fit together a 
year's experiences for the Chestnut 

Across the dark Commons yellow 
angles slice the sky. Inside, budding 
artists work at their masterpieces. 
Clay-covered hands slap and pinch at 
sculptures or pull stoneware from the 
potter's wheel. Art projects grow from 
days and nights hunched over easels 
and layout tables. 

Music majors spend days and nights 
practicing instruments and voice 
charts. Theater majors pace the 
hallways of Music and Speech with 

hair slicked back and faces lost under 
greasepaint. On another floor, 
telecommunications students labor to 
broadcast news and music over the 

When the clock radio blares on 
weekday mornings the university 
bustles to life. The quarter is short 
and the year passes by fast. There is 
seldom the right kind of food, never 
enough time for sleep, and always too 
much studying to be done. But 
interspersed with chaotic times are 
times of solitary peace. Moments of 
frustration are laced with those of fun 
and laughter. And there are as many 
times to stomp through snow or lie in 
the sun as there are to run from the 
monsoon rains.

The town and countryside 

Kent, Ohio . . . sticky, sweating hot 
in the summer . . . driving into town 
on one of the several highways, from 
Cleveland, Akron, Ravenna - the rain 
is bound to start pouring down as you 
pass the corporation limits. 

Kent, Ohio . . . trees, the Holiday 
Inn, countryside, picturesque 
farmlands, highway - city - you're 
there. Largely populated and spotted 
with business for a town with 
seemingly little indsutry. 

Railroad cars whistle down the 
tracks along Water, Franklin Streets 
through Fred Fuller Park winding 
Cuyahoga riverside, past old Erie- 
Lackawanna Station, mills, behind old 
bar row, Brady Leap - did he really? 
— new highway, Crain Street bridge, 
out 43 ... country again, Towner 
Junction and you've left . . . Kent, 



its quaint tree lined old 
and increasingly swelling 
sub-suburban sprawl, Kent resembles 
any one of a number of small 
northeastern, southwestern Ohio, mid- 
western United States towns. 

Kent's major difference is that 
nearly two-thirds of its approximately 
32,000 residents either live at or 
commute daily to the main source of 
livelihood, the 1200 acre Kent State 
University campus.

summer, fall days, foot of snow on 
winter days with fraternity row 
parties and College Avenue . . . Kent, 

Farm folks visit the city weekly for 
their everyday needs . . . gas, groceries, 
drugstore necessities from Hartville, 
Brimfield, small rural spots along 43, 
with kids for haircuts, and country 
fresh vegetable stands along the way 
. . . farmers' market with fresh fruit, 
trail baloney on their way into the 
"tree city". 

Weekends come and scores of 
students climb in cars or throw out 
their thumbs to go home to Cleveland 

or Akron or somewhere to visit 
another college town, some friends, 
and the population is reduced, town is 
slower — pace dies down. 

Weekend outings, picnics in parks 
and walking up Main for ice cream — 
skating on the lake, hot chocolate and 
party at bars. Kline's market for 
cheese and deathly silent Sunday 
streets then wham . . . return traffic 
from all parts of Ohio. 

Main Street widening brings 
confusion with earth movers crawling 
into streets causing traffic jams and 
trees tumbling here and there for 
progress. Hamburger stands up and 

down the street seek business of 
students de-appetized by university 

Early morning loops for campus, 
West-Main Plaza and donut breakfast 
at Captain Brady's before 7:45, packs 
of people waiting, running to catch up 
— business as usual is Kent, Ohio. 

Late at night two slightly 
overschooled and undernourished 
tenants of the tree town shoot the 
breeze while coffeeing over the 
delectability of a home fries, eggs easy

I One Year 


Documenting May 27, 1976 

Sunrise brings another day to life at 
KSU. Twenty thousand students 
struggle to leave warm beds and make 
their way to campus. A morning 
shower, coffee and donuts, and a long 
walk interrupt their journey. 

As Ken Jones sleeps, the day unfolds 
around him. He will soon awaken to 
become a part of it. At 8:50 a.m. he 
will join classmates in Bowman Hall 
to ponder the views of Descartes. 

Thirty photographers set out early 
on this day to capture part of its soul 
and preserve it through thousands of 
shots of which the following ten pages 
are a small sample. 

The photographs contain pieces of 
what attending KSU is all about — the 
way the photographer saw the campus 
and life on it that day. 

May 27th does have its place in 
history. Captain Lester Grau, as he 
walked into the ROTC Office said, 
"Today is an important day, gang, 
today is the 201st anniversary of the 
Battle of Noodle and Hog Island."

Free Concert 

Listening, dancing, drinking and smoking on the 

Rumors were traded before it was 
ever announced there was going to be 
a concert. 

Then the official announcement 
came. Yes, KSU was going to have a 
free concert on the commons. Liv- 
ingston Taylor, Earl Slick, the Michael 
Stanley Band, the Outlaws and the J. 
Geils Band would play. 

All Campus Programming Board 
and Kent Interhall Council cospon- 
sored the concert on Saturday, May 15 
as a part of Campus Weekend '76. 
ACPB spent $32,000 and KIC contrib- 
uted $5,000, Stacey Harper, concert 
chairperson said. ACPB spent money 
made as profits on previous events. 

On Friday eighteen wheelers pulled 
into town, one by one, carrying the 
monstrous stage, lights and sound 

Crews went to work. 

The day came. A cloudy, lukewarm, 
drizzly day, hardly ideal, but the 
crowd which would eventually num- 
ber some 10,000 people didn't seem to 

They straggled down to the Com- 
mons slowly in groups. Picking spots 
for blankets, arranging themselves for 
maximum listening pleasure, and 
scanning the gathering crowd for 
friends, they came together. 


Most of the people on the commons May 15 
were dancing, drinking and listening, but a few 
people had to work. Some set up the stage, and 
some provided the music. 

The music began at 2:30 p.m. Livingston Taylor 
(top) opened the show and started the festivities. 

Photography. Opposite page: Bob Huddleston. top Thorn War- 
ren, bottom This page: Terry Grande, top, right Lynne Sladky, 


They brought" frisbees, munchies, 
beer, booze, and grass. 

Livingston Taylor began the per- 
formance at 2:30 p.m. Some of the 
crowd expected the J. Geils Band to 
perform first. They heckled the musi- 
cians, who continued their show un- 
daunted. Earl Slick followed Liv- 
ingston Taylor with an original guitar 

As the day wore on the crowd 
swelled and contracted. People wan- 
dered back and forth between friends. 

They left to buy lunch and dinner, 
returned and ate. 

They were anxious to hear some 
familiar tunes, when the Michael 



Stanley band took over. A favorite 
with the crowd, the Cleveland based 
band entertained them with popular 
songs from their newest album. 

Rock 'n roll, Southern boogie, 
frisbees and the sweet, pungent smell 
of everyone's favorite weed filled the 
air making the intermittent drizzle vir- 
tually unnoticeable. 

Although many merely ignored the 
rain, some brought umbrellas and 
some invented their own protection 
from plastic garbage bags. A few lis- 
teners sought shelter under tarps, tents 
and blankets. 

They came to their feet waving beer 
cans and Confederate flags when the 
Outlaws began to play. They danced, 
drank and lined up at the Johns. Some 
ended up flat on their faces, too drunk 
to be aware of the surrounding activi- 
Here and there couples engaged in a 
lover's duet, some shielded by blan- 
kets, some not. 

With night came the J. Geils Band 
and two more hours of hardcore rock 
'n roll led by the frenetic Peter Wolf. 
People clapped hands, swayed to the 
beat, and took in the sounds. 

When it was over the crowd stag- 
gered home. No one had been ar- 
rested. Six people had been treated at 
the KSU Health Center for minor in- 
juries. Tired and happy, they left be- 
hind empty bottles, beer cans and 
trash, but they took with them many 

While Michael Gee, leader of the Michael 
Stanley Band. Daniel Pecchio, the bass player 
(opposite) and later, the J. Geils Band (bottom) 
performed on stage, the audience enjoyed 
themselves in a variety of w^ays.

Greek Week 

A tradition of brotherhood and honor 

Greek Week is a national event that 
evolved from the tradition of the an- 
cient Greek Olympic Games. At KSU, 
the tradition, which started in 1947, 
has become a Greek Weekend, held 
every spring. Seventeen Hellenic And 
Interfraternity Councils on campus 
sponsor the activities. Co-chairpersons 
were Mary Craig and Edward Louisa. 

"We've got the spirit" was this 
year's theme. From April 29 to May 2 
Greeks wore pins, shirts with Greek 
letters, and stickers. 

On Thursday night, as an opener, 
they sponsored "The Way We Were", 
in Bowman Lecture B at 7:30 p.m. 


i r- T - -■ --^:y — T - 

The games started Friday at 3 p.m. 
on Allerton field after a campus-circl- 
ing parade that featured a car from 
each of the chapters on campus. Fra- 
ternities and sororities competed in 
tug-of-wars, a steeplechase, four-leg- 
ged races, egg tosses, rope-pulls, tire 
relays, and trike races. 

Friday night a dance was held and a 
Greek Goddess was crowned, a frater- 
nity member dressed as a beauty 
queen by sorority members. 

Saturday's big event was the bath- 
tub pull, which benefitted the Ameri- 
can Cancer Society. It started at 8:30 
a.m. at the Rockwell Hall information 

booth, and traveled to University 
Plaza, Tallmadge Circle, Chapel Hill 
Mall and the Stow-Keni Plaza. 

The week ended at 4:00 p.m. Sunday 
with a recognition banquet. Awards 
were given to the Greek Woman of 
the Year, Joy Dingee of Delta Gamma, 
and the Greek Man of the Year, Scott 
Cunningham of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 

The activities of the weekend pro- 
mote the feeling of solidarity between 
various chapters on campus. 

Climaxing Greek Week, a tug-of-war, an egg 
toss, and a tire roll determine which Greeks are 
the best. 

Backed by the cheers of their sisters, the 
women of Alpha Gamma Delta give their all 
to bring honor to their sorority and avoid an 
embarrassing tumble during tug-of-war 

Delightmg m a moment of victory, two 
sorority sisters share smiles and a hug

May Fourth 

In Memoriam 

"Still others fought to 
continue the ceremonies." 

It was not a Bicentennial 

Americans were caught up in "the 
way it was 200 years ago today," but 
few seemed to care about the way it 
was six year ago. The war was 
escalating in Vietnam. Here at home 
rebellion, confusion, and hatred gave 
way to fear, bitterness and death. 

On the island of Kent State 
University some that remembered said 
it was better to forget May 4th and the 
events surrounding it. They insisted 
they had heard it all before, and 
didn't want to think about it anymore. 
Still others fought to continue the 
ceremonies. They argued and sent 
editorials to the Kent Stater. Speeches 
were written for a program on the 
Commons. A Unity March was 
organized in support of the recent 
civil suit appeal, and individuals were 
urged to skip classes on Tuesday, May 

On the evening of May 3 with only 
ten minutes left before the candlelight 
procession began, there were fewer 

than fifteen people waiting. We 
squinted nervously at each other in 
the darkness, wondering if everyone 
else on campus was intent on ignoring 
what had happened here. We shivered 
beside the Victory Bell and scanned 
the hillside for more participants. 

People joined the group in spurts. 
Slowly, sporadically we grew in 
number. At the last minute there came 
a charge of people down the hill 
behind Taylor Hall. Some of them 
brought candles, which were passed 
among us. 

Strong hands pumped the Victory 
Bell, while others fumbled in pockets 
and purses for matches and cigarette 
lighters. A few flames sprung to life 
and blinked in the wind. Those with 
unlit candles encircled those with 
light. Fire was passed from candle to 
candle until all glowed. Darkness was 
illuminated by wavering candle 
flames. The peal of the Victory Bell 
echoed through the air and was 
suddenly silent. 

No political speeches, historic 
reenactments or explanations of 
current legal proceedings followed. 
Someone merely thanked us for 
coming and said the procession was 
traditionally walked in silence. We 
were more or less left on our own to

jroup in some semblance of a line, 
weryone shuffled together and began 
he solemn walk around front campus. 

Within the silent clump of people, 
here really wasn't anything to do 
jesides set one foot in front of the 
)ther, guard the candle flame, and 
Tieditate on what had happened six 
(?ears earlier. Most of the participants

Tiy perceptions of what occurred were 
:louded by the hazy awareness of 

In those six years the whole 
political climate had changed. In 1970 
;here was a controversial war, an 
srganized draft, and much 
misconception about political radicals. 
People became active protestors 
because the issues involved them 
directly. By the spring of '76 there was 
[10 war and no draft. World problems 
were thousands of miles away. It 
seemed more important to be 
sducated for the job market and 
accepted in society. 

I wasn't sure what happened six 
years ago could happen tomorrow at 
Kent State, but I believed I would 
have been on the Commons that tragic 
day. Maybe that was why I 

Something distracted me and I 
snapped out of my thoughts into 
immediate reality. We were now 
walking along Main Street, moving as 
one solid mass of some 650 people 
and hundreds of candle flames. Cars 
sped past us. Several horns bellowed. 
I thought they were mocking us, the 
ceremony, and the dead, and I felt 
anger rise inside me. 

I was aware of a new enemy. The 
cameras — intruding lenses and cold, 
clicking shutters — "shooting" the 
procession to hell. I understood the 
need for some photographs, but there 
were too many photographers. How 
could they hope to capture our 
emotions? They ran back and forth, 
shooting off their mouths and their 
flash attachments as we shuffled 
solemnly, silently amid the 

My candle snuffed out and I turned 
my attention to it. Somehow during 
the walk the candle commemorating 
four deaths had come to symbolize 
life itself. There was a battle to be 
fought — the candle had to conquer 
darkness as life had to conquer death. 

And in the silence we pulled 
together in the fight. A bond had 
sprung between those who walked 
here. Even without words we had 

"A unity march was organized in support of the 
recent civil suit appeal ..." (opposite top) and 
the May 4 Task Force and others urged students 
and faculty to remember May 4 (opposite, 
bottom right). 

Dedicated to their memory, the May 4 room in 
the library houses unnervingly realistic manikins 
formed in the positions in which the students 
fell (left).

Soon my candle burned again. 

I guarded it with all the care that a 
mother guards her child, but I could 
not save it from the wind. Twice it 
had to be relighted. Still I fought to 
shield it from harm. It blew out again. 
I believed it was an impossible battle 
to keep one fragile candle alive amid 
the wind. It had been an impossible 
battle to keep four students alive amid 
the bullets. 

We had come to Taylor Hall 
parking lot. Sites were ropcd-off 
where William Schroeder, Allison 
Krause, Sandy Scheuer, and Jeffrey 
Miller had fallen. Kent State students 
stood vigil in three of the sites. Jeffrey 
Miller's parents stood over the spot 
where their son had fallen. The rest of 
us gathered around the sites or stood 
before the tombstone marker, heads 
bowed, striving to im.agine what we 
were not around to remember. 
Defying the wind, candlelight 
flickered around us. 

Mrs. Miller cried on her husband's 
shoulder. The sky cried a light rain 
overhead. And there were many tears 
on the faces around me.

Creative Arts Festival 

April 25 - April 28 

His face was white. His hands 
searched the sides of the box. He was 
a prisoner. Outside, the faces laughed 
and jeered, then, watched anxiously 
as his expression changed from worry 
to despair. 

As he continued his act more people 
gathered. Some were just curious, 
some intrigued. Most were caught in 
the mystique of his performance. Only 
a few left for classes before it was 

Don McLead, a mime artist featured 
in the 1976 Creative Arts Festival, en- 
tertained a crowd of 300 at his mini- 
performance in the Student Center. 

Seven types of cultural entertain- 
ment were represented April 25-28, in 
the tenth annual Creative Arts Festi- 

McLeod, who studied under Marcel 
Marceau, took time off from his tour 
with Diana Ross, one of several pop 
artists with mime acts, to visit Kent. 

"Mime," he said, "is a way of com- 
municating without words — a com- 
bination of the clown, serious actor, 
comedian, dancer and jester. It reflects 
our surroundings through movement." 

Following his mini-performance, 
McLeod held a workshop for inter- 
ested students. At 8:30 that evening he 
performed in the Kiva. 

Steve Sevell, a New York City com- 


mercial artist, participated in the festi- 
val for the second year. He served as 
this year's guest host and coordinator. 
He combined caricatures of all of the 
performers in a collage. 

Soleil, a laser light show, premiered 
in Anaheim, California in May, 1975. 
On April 25 students brought blankets 
and pillows to the Student Center 
ballroom to lie on the floor and watch 
the three laser beams dance and skip 
in harmony with an original sound 
track. Two shows were given, one at 
8:30 p.m. and one at 10 p.m. 

Captain Blink gave a mini-perform- 
ance Monday, April 26 at noon. At 9 
that night the seven member jazz 

band performed in the Kiva. Their 
music spans the jazz spectrum from 
1940's bop to the spatial tangents of 
Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. 

Two Penny Circus believes a clown 
lies dormant within each of us. Their 
act included theatrical skits, circus 
acts, acrobatics, fire-eating, juggling, 
unicycling and magic. After a preview 
mini-performance in the Student Cen- 
ter lobby, they presented an original 
"commedies dell arte" entitled "The 
Misfortunes of Senor Pontatone or A 
Bad Boy in Bergannox", at 9 Wednes- 
day evening in University Auditorium. 

Poets Gerald Stevenson and Liza 
Gyllenhaal, both members of the

More than blood and guts 

Many people think rugby players 
are violent, brutal, and crazy. 

But the average rugger plays the 
game for the sport of it. He is in the 
game for the physical contact and the 
pure sense of sport, said Pat Joyce, 
KSU Rugby Club treasurer. 

Ruggers enjoy their club status. 
They pay for their own equipment 
and travel expenses. They set their 
own pace and they even act as their 
own pre-game entertainment when 
'the choir' starts up. 

Since openings on college varsity 
teams are limited, club teams offer a 
chance to play. At KSU everyone in 
the rugby club plays; there are no 
cuts. Fifty men play rugby at KSU; 
three teams of fifteen and five 

Ruggers lament all of the 
misconceptions that people have of 
their game. On a nice day 200-400 
people watch a KSU rugby game. The 
first time one watches the game they 
associate the shape of the ball with 
the American football and therefore 
compare rugby with football. 

The comparison should be reversed. 
Rugby is somewhere in the middle of 
a progression from soccer to football. 

It seems that long ago a student at 
Rugby School in England became 
dissatisfied with his soccer practice. 
Instead of kicking the ball downfield, 
he picked up the ball and ran with it. 
After the initial shock of seeing him 
running with the ball, the rest of the 
team converged on him. 

Thus the lateral pass was born ... a 
move to save a person's skin. 

Rugby resembles soccer only in its 
continuous style of play. It has 
striking similarities to American 
football other than just the shape of 
the ball. 

Anyone who knows football can see 
the plays which evolved from the 
rugby scrum, ruck and try. A scrum 
reminds one of two rams batting 
horns. It is the start of an offensive 

play. Football's scrimmage is a 
derivation of the rugby scrummage. 
The ruck has evolved into the 
American gang tackle. The try is the 
ruggers' version of the T.D. KSU 
ruggers average three tries a game. 

Rugby is one of the most physically 
demanding sports. The participants 
run between five and seven miles per 
game and can take no time-outs, 
except for injury. 

And injuries there are! The bumper 
sticker that tells us, "give blood . . . 
play rugby" is accurate. Ruggers play 
with various injuries, from bloody 
noses to broken fingers. KSU ruggers 
suffered only two serious injuries this 
spring. Jim Tercek had a knee injury 
which required surgery and Pat Joyce 
also suffered a knee injury. 

You never know, you might send a 
close friend or a new found friend to 
the Health Center after catching him 
in the middle of a ruck. 

But if the natural violence of the 
game doesn't drop a player, a flying 
tackle or a right hook may. Fights are 
not uncommon in the heat of battle 
but are frowned upon. The team has 
to play shorthanded whether a player 
leaves the game because of injury or 
ejection, so arguments are usually 
stopped before they can become 
anything else. 

It's easy for a player to be injured 
by a block because he doesn't wear 
any padding. When a player is 
injured, he is taken to the sidelines 
without stopping play. If action 
cannot be continued around him, it is 
stopped. If the player recovers soon 
enough he may re-enter the game. 

Since injuries are part of the game, 
players can't afford to think about 
them very much. After all, if a player 
is worried about getting hurt by the 
next block, he isn't going to play very 

Many ruggers play the game 
because it offers things other sports 
do not. Two of these "other things" 


U^r- tf. 


are social relationships and 

An old custom in rugby is for the 
home team to throw a party for the 
visitors. This presents a chance for the 
ruggers to meet each other outside the 
field of play. 

Each player pays $5 dues per 
quarter. For every home game he pays 
another $3, which is used for the after 
game parties. Joyce believes that these 
parties are one of the reasons the guys 
stick with rugby. 

At the party the two teams 
exchange ideas about the game, and 
talk over differences. Songs are sung 


and toasts are offered. This is clearly 
a departure from the 'win or else' 
philosophy of many varsity sports in 
which a player only thinks of his 
opponent as the enemy. 

In the heat of the game, the ball slips loose and 
sets off a scramble (preceding page), which a 
rugger taking a short break watches with 
interest (opposite top). 

A mass of tangled arms and legs, two teams 
start play in a scrum (opposite middle). 
Meanwhile, their game over, three ruggers settle 
back to relax and watch the next game (bottom).

the rugger has time for, as the scramble for the

Fire on Water 

A Sequel 

If Pete Hamo. owner of the Ron-de- 
vou, had yelled "fire" in the Ron-de- 
vou lune 11. there would have been 
hell to pay! 

He just said. "All right, everybody 
get out!" 

"Why." someone yelled. "What the 
hell. I just got a full beer — it's only 
1:20. it's not 2:30 yet. " 

"If you don't want to die. you'll 
leave." was his tight-faced reply. 

As he replied, someone opened the 
door and we could see reflections of 
flames on it. We left without further 
discussion. We escaped without any 
injuries since everyone was urging 
everyone else to "stay cool and take it 

Outside it looked as if the whole 
Water St. "strip" was on fire for the 
second time in six months. We. the 
Water Street regulars, crossed the 
street and sat on the sidewalk. Taking 
furtive sips from a few shared beers, 
we watched the fire-fighting equip- 
ment arrive. 

The shells of the Kove and the Wa- 
ter Street Saloon were once again 
glowing, and J.B.'s. Walter's, the Phoe- 
nix and Ron-de-vou were aglow from 
the flames within. 

It was like watching the slow, pain- 
ful death of an old friend. The flames 
ate hungrily at the bars which had 
been a large part of many of our lives. 

It seemed to us as though many 
friendly ghosts rode out on the black 

rubbery smoke and the bright orange 
flames. They came out of our memo- 
ries and merged with our visions of 
the fire. 

From Walter's came the visions of 
rednecks and hippies: hardhats and 
professors: KSU administrators and 
students: doctors, lawyers, and motor- 
cycle gang members. They came out 
together, drinking together, and cur- 
sing together for and against local 
sports teams. We could see them hav- 
ing breakfast and or a 6:30 eye opener 
together. Some were having lunch to- 
gether, and some were just sitting 
around the tables bullshitting. 

From the Phoenix came the haun- 
tingly painful notes of the hard rock 
blues of 15-60-75. We could see the 
stoned gestures of phantom figures 
frantically dancing their blues away. 

From J.B.'s came the sizzling wails 
of the country rock from the Immortal 
Porpoises. We could see smoky spirals 
of denim and plaid clad, sweating 
dancers twisting to uncanny banjo 
and steel guitar sounds. 

As the visions merged with the 
black sky we found our attention 
drawn to the battle between fire and 
water. The buildings, themselves 
fought hard against the fire demons, 
but the wooden boulders and the riv- 
ers from the firemen were losing the 

After what seemed like hours, the 
fire appearing to have consumed its 

fill, belched gigantic clouds of steam 
and left. 

The firemen, photographers, we, the 
hard-core mourners and a frantically 
pacing Joe Bujack, owner of J.B.'s and 
the Phoenix, were all that were left. 

The Ron-de-vou seemed to be in- 
tact, but only concrete shells and the 
downstairs of Walter's seemed to be 
left of that which once seemed so 
permanent — "the strip". 

We threw a few symbolic clumps 
on the grave and numbly and dumbly 
trudged home. We were sure that the 
strip was dead and we were unable to 
even speculate about any possible fu- 
ture for it. 


October. 1976 — The Phoenix as 
well as the rest of "the strip" will rise 
from the ashes. 

The Ron-de-vou re-opened within 
days after the fire. J.B.'s re-opened in 
September. Walter's had a grand re- 
opening in October. A re-created 
Phoenix is expected to open in the 
Winter. Bob Petty is planning a new, 
much larger Kove. 

"The strip" will be back. Maybe? . . . 
"You can go home again. " 



Smoke, water, flames, firemen and patrons 
covered the Wafer St. strip the night of June 11. 
J.B.'s (top), home of 15-60-75, Waher"s (middle) 
and adjacent buildings sustained S200.000 in 
damages. Kent and Ravenna fire departments 
(bottom) responded to the alarm at 1:25 a.m.

Five Years 

President Glenn A. Olds comments 

"The situation was incredible and almost bi- 
zarre when 1 arrived." 

In the five years that Glenn A. Olds 
has been president of Kent State Uni- 
versity many changes have occurred 
within the faculty, administration and 
student body. 

When the student body learned of 
his possible departure to serve at Flor- 
ida International University in Miami, 
Florida, the Chestnut Burr conducted 
the following interview: 

Q: In the past five years how have 
your feelings about the campus and 
people at KSU changed? 
A: "The situation was incredible and 
almost bizarre when I arrived." Our 
first night here my wife and I stayed 
at University Inn, where I was ap- 
proached by two couples who recog- 
nized me as the new Kent State Uni- 
versity president. 

One man said, "Well, I hope you're 
gonna be a hell of a lot tougher than 
the man you're succeeding, they 
should have shot 400 of them, not 4." 

"This was our introduction to Kent." 

"It's hard to believe the feeling was 
that deep and rancid. The climate of 
the campus was one of fear, hostility, 
suspicion and anger. I took a lot of 
criticism from faculty and others." 
The reason I came to Kent was be- 
cause people were ready to sell your 
generation out as "bad news", and I 
knew that was not true. 

"I would say that climate has been 
dramatically changed." 

Q: When you first came here, what 
did you want to accomplish, and have 
you accomplished it? 
A: "I wanted to do several things 
which have been accomplished. I 
wanted to restore confidence in the 
University on the part of the con- 
stituency and public. I wanted to heal 
the deep anger and frustration and I 
think that's pretty well done. I wanted 
to develop a consensus in planning for 
the University. Nobody knew where it 
was headed or if it was headed any- 

Q: If another university offered a bet- 
ter situation, such as a better inter- 
national system, would you stay here 
and finish the things you wanted to 
accomplish or would you leave? 
A: "My disposition would be to stay 
here and finish." One of the things 
that was tempting about the Florida 
situation was the prospect of building 
an International University from 

On the other hand, this would be a 
very bad time to leave. It would ap- 
pear that I was leaving for all the 
wrong reasons. "If I were to leave, it 
wouldn't be because I was dis- 
appointed in Kent, or frustrated by 
criticism, but because I thought it 
would provide a larger opportunity 
for service." 

Q: Have you made any plans con- 
cerning Florida yet? 
A: No. Everyone seems to know more 
about it than I do. I had told them I 
really couldn't be a candidate and 


that's true. I really came down to the 
final picture as a candidate on their 
terms. I have a deep commitment to 
this University and have given it five 
of the toughest years of my life. 

Q: When will you know about Flor- 

A: I'll have to decide within the next 
few weeks. 

Q: What effects have collective bar- 
gaining had on your position as presi- 

A: "It has challenged a lot of my basic 
assumptions and philosophy." I be- 
lieve in the collegial concept of a uni- 
versity, and I have resisted, obviously, 
the adversarial structure. That is what 
I found here and worked hard to im- 
prove. "I believe in government by the 
consent of the governed. Therefore, I 
think the faculty had a right to deter- 
mine what mode of participation they 
preferred in the problems of the Uni- 

If I voted, I would have voted 
against the faculty union because 1 
think the university is the last outpost 
of real freedom. I find it contradictory 
that I'm going to trust somebody else 
to do my negotiating and my collabo- 
ration. "Obviously, my purpose now is 
to try to make it work and to try to 
insure that the worst possibilities of 
collective bargaining do not occur." 

Q: What does the next 20 years hold 
for Kent? 

A: "It could become a good median 
regional university — and that's good 
— but it has a chance of being uni- 
quely great. It's the latter vision of the 
university that I share and that 
brought me here and that will keep 
me here. Kent State isn't a place, it's 
an historic event." 

Q: Ohio is now ranked 48 in money 
spent for education. Yet, Kent is rank- 
ed very high in costs. Do you think 
this will ever change? 

A: "Oh, yes. It's one of the reasons I 
came to Ohio. My experience has 
been if you start at the bottom, there's 
a lot of room, and that's where we are. 
Sure, it can happen in Ohio. It's a 
great state. It's a disgrace that it 
should not be one of the pace setting 
leaders in higher education." 

S: Thank you very much. Dr. Olds.

Hi Fi Clinic 

Doing it professionally 

In the technology building, Van 
Deusen Hall, I hear banging, clanging 
and whirring. I walk into what ap- 
pears to be a classroom, room 204. All 
around me sit disassembled tvs, ra- 
dios, eight-track players and cb units. 

As a service to the campus commu- 
nity the Hi Fi Clinic in room 204 pro- 
vides convenient appliance repair at 
moderate prices. In the five years the 
clinic has been open thousands of ra- 
dios, tvs, stereos and cb units have 

been put back in working order, ac- 
cording to Director Richard Koelker, 
industrial technology professor. 

Between three and five technology 
students help out in the clinic every 
quarter. The number who staff the 
office depends upon their time and 
the needs of their customers. 

Students work in the clinic on a 
voluntary basis. No credit is given for 
work in the clinic, but it is a possi- 
bility, according to Koelker, although 

it has never been done. He works on 
each unit, either alone, or with stu- 
dent help. Students can learn by 
watching him. 

Last Saturday a sophomore girl 
brought in a turntable which did not 
turn. She was anxious to get it repair- 
ed. Koelker showed Greg Pozzi what 
was wrong with it and how to fix it. 
"OK, Pozzi," he said the next time 
someone brought in a broken turn- 
table, "Take that thing apart and do 
that little number I showed you." 

Koelker named three other regulars 
in the clinic all quarter. Joe Schaffner, 
a senior, Paul Weber, a senior, and 
John Simon help Koelker with the re- 

Simon is taking a transistor class 
with Koelker. He said 90% of the 
equipment brought into the clinic is 
transistorized. "You learn more by 
working on the real equipment than if 
you read about it in a book," he said. 
He explained he is always learning 
something new about circuitry in the 
clinic. Simon spends about two hours 
in the clinic on Mondays, Wednesdays 
and Fridays. 

Both students and faculty bring in 
broken equipment. Just the other day 
one of the associate provosts brought 
in a broken loudspeaker. The Campus 


Police Department has had their ra- 
dios and tvs repaired in the clinic. 

Students get their first impression of 
technology at the clinic. It brings stu- 
dents into the building and introduces 
them to the field. Koelker was in Clar- 
kins last fall when a girl he had never 
seen before walked by with a turn- 
table. Jokingly he said, when that 
thing quits, bring it to the Hi Fi Clinic 
and we'll fix it for you. 

The girl had just had an estimate 

done on it at Clarkins. The estimate 
was $50 and the estimate itself cost $6. 
Koelker took the girl and the turntable 
into the clinic and repaired it for her 
that day for $2. 

Most equipment can be repaired the 
same day but there are exceptions. 
More than 100 units pass through the 
clinic doors each quarter. If a part is 
not available locally, the owner can 
order it himself, or the clinic can re- 
engineer the unit so it at least works. 

The clinic provides technology stu- 
dents an opportunity for involvement 
and experience with customers and

Doing it professionally 

Behind the glass wall of the studio 
is a row of worktables. At various 
times throughout the day and night 
the artists sit, bending intently over 
the tables as they create a design or 
prepare images for photoconversion. 

A board on the side wall lists all 
current clients and job assignments. 
The list may include the monthly 
program guide for WKSU, an income 
tax brochure for the Kent Finance 
Department, book covers, logo 
designs, an annual report, a bumper 
sticker, stationery, catalogues and 

All of the clients are affiliated with 
KSU or another non-profit 
organization. All of the jobs are 
screened to provide the artist with a 
learning experience. 

The artist is an amateur, yet he is a 
professional. He is a member of 
Glyphix, a program unique to the 
KSU School of Art. 

Glyphix, a combination of the 
words "hieroglyph" and graphics," is a 
studio staffed by 10 to 15 students of 
Graphic Design and Illustration. Its 
purpose is to provide creative, quality 
print design for the university and 

community while giving top students 
professional work experience. 

As George Opryszko worked on a 
catalogue for the Blossom Art School, 
he explained that the chance to work 
with a client on an actual job, instead 
of a hypothetical problem assigned in 
class, is invaluable. 

A job-seeker who has been a 
member of Glyphix will have printed 
work in his portfolio. Sandi Thome, 
who was in her fourth quarter with 
Glyphix this fall, said few students 

have the opportunity to see their work 

Students are admitted to Glyphix 
any time after completion of certain 
3000 level graphic design courses. 
They are chosen on the basis of 
creativity, skill, reliability, self- 
direction and discipline through 
letters of recommendation from 
faculty members, interviews with 
Glyphix Art Director Charles Walker 
and a portfolio examination by 
Walker and staff members. 


Students are graded and receive 
three to nine credit hours for Glyphix. 
They are expected to spend at least 
two hours in the studio for every 
credit hour earned, though the actual 
time varies according to assignments 
and usually includes much more. 

Two members are art directors of 
the 1976 Chestnut Burr. Lewis 
Williams and Tom Bugzavich spend 
the bulk of their time with the 
yearbook, though they also work on 
other jobs. They had the choice of 

receiving either credit or the Burr art 
staff salary, so they chose credit, 
donating the money toward studio 

Two other Glyphix students were 
apprentices with the Publications 
Office fall quarter, and additional 
apprenticeships are being developed 
where the student elects either pay or 

Glyphix bills clients for material 
costs only, and members may not 
accept payment for studio work. If 

money above material costs is 

available, it is used for supplies, 

publicity and entrance fees to 
professional shows.

Student Nurses 

Doing it professionally 

Nurse! Nurse! A gentle, 
understanding person in white is 
expected to answer that call. 
Whatever the reason, the person that 
answers is expected to be a health 
professional who can find the solution 
to whatever problem may be facing 
the patient, even if the patient does 
not really know what is bothering 

At KSU 739 men and women want 
to be the persons who respond to 
those pleas for help. 

In order to become a nursing 
professional, 475 sophomore, junior and 
senior nursing students spend 1240 
hours in a hospital or other 
professional health facility during 
their last three years at KSU. These 
clinical nursing courses also involve 
an additional 520 lecture hours. This 
adds up to an impressive 1760 clinical 
and lecture hours (excluding study, 
travel and preparation time) for 86 
credit hours. 

The clinical nursing courses are 
taught in hospitals and community 
health facilities throughout northeast 

Nursing students may get up as 
early as 5 a.m. to take a bus to 
Cleveland's Mt. Sinai or St. Lukes 
hospitals. Other nurses may spend 
clinical time at hospitals in Akron or 
Ravenna. Seniors provide their own 
transportation to community health 
facilities in Cuyahoga, Portage, Stark 
or Summit counties. 

Stress in clinical situations is on the 
application of theories learned in 
lecture to the practice of professional 
nursing in an instructor supervised 
real-life situation. 

Student nurses learn to view each 
patient in a holistic fashion. All 
aspects of the physical as well as 
psychological well-being are carefully 
considered. Patients are not just 
viewed in terms of medications and 
illnesses or injuries. Young nursing 
professionals are taught to see each 
individual in terms of a total nursing 


care program. 

They are taught to think of each 
person in terms of age and their 
psychological adjustment to both their 
illness and the hospital environment. 
The aspiring nurses are taught to 
communicate with, work with and 
support the families of the patients in 
order to help them understand the 
part they play in the health care of the 

In short, these young professionals 
are being prepared to be able to assess 
a patient's needs, prepare a total 
health care plan that will meet those 
needs, implement that plan and then 
evaluate the effectiveness of the plan. 

Hopefully, if you ever cry. Nurse! 
the person that answers that call will 
have participated in this kind of 
professional education.

Kent Acting and Touring Company 

Doing it professionally 

"People participate in 
KATC because they are 
excited about theater." 

Kent Acting and Touring Company, 
Incorporated (KATC) is the place for 
KSU students to audition if they are 
looking for professional theater 
experience. In its second year KATC 
is already known for intimate style 
musicals and environmental theater. 

Sheila Crowley has worked in both 
university and KATC productions. 
She said university performances are 
usually done for educational 
purposes. Students participate 
because it is expected of them. People 
participate in KATC because they are 

excited about theater, she continued. 

Unlike university productions 
KATC is not limited to using only 
students in casts and technical crews. 
Students in KATC have the 
opportunity to work beside 
experienced professionals. "If you can 
do it, you're in," said Crowley. 

R.C. Wilson has been involved in 
two KATC fall productions. He 
worked beside Harold Darkow, an 
experienced actor in Dracula. Darkow 
played Dracula, and Wilson played 
Simon. When Richard Henzel 


performed as Mark Twain, Wilson 
had the opportunity to watch and 
learn as Henzel's production assistant. 

Deb Raber is gaining experience 
working production and promotion 
for professional actors. She worked on 
both Dracula and Mark Twain. 

Managing Artistic Director James 
Thornton does not distinguish 
between students and non-students. 
To him you are the actor, the main 
participant, said Crowley. She 
contrasted this with the "I am the 
director, you are the student" attitude 

that most KSU directors have. 

Part of the excitement comes from 
being in a different location for every 
show. Thornton, who is currently 
pursuing his MA at KSU, utilizes these 
different environments to combine 
actors and audience in a unique 
theater experience. 

KATC has no theater of its own. It 
has no grants or funding. Students are 
not paid for their efforts. The com- 
pany pays for sets, theater rentals, 
tickets and production costs through 
private patronage and box office sales. 

David Prittie has worked with 
KATC since its birth two years ago. 
Last spring he finished off the season 
in "Jacques Brel" while completing a 
BA in theater arts. This year he 
returned as KATC's first professional 
resident actor. 

Even now in its formative stages 
KATC offers the community unique 
drama experiences. It is also 
providing KSU theater students with 
the opportunity to ''do it

Aerospace Technology 

Contrasting majors 

Some occupations require the effort 
of a professional. Aviation is a 
profession which demands mental and 
physical endurance. No one is more 
aware of this than students who major 
in Aerospace Technology. 

I visited Andrew W. Paton airport, 
yesterday, where students train to 
pass Federal Aviation Association 
(FAA) tests for private, commercial, 
multi-engine and instrument ratings. 
About 42 students are there this 
quarter preparing for careers in 
airport management and flight 

Students are taught the basics of 
communication, weather, navigation 
and FAA flight regulations. Other 
funadamental information about 
aircraft design and construction, and 
engine and electrical systems is taught 
in classes on main campus before the 
student begins his training at the 

The history of the aerospace 
program goes back to the post-World 
War 11 years when the late Andrew 
W. Paton started the program with 
one professor and one student. 
Gradually, the program grew to its 
present form in 1965. 

Students do not have much 
difficulty in obtaining employment 
when they graduate, according to Karl 
D. Gould, assistant professor of 
aerospace technology. Not many 
positions are open with the airlines, 
however, so most are employed by 
corporate aviation firms. 

At the airport I talked with Marc 
Elliot who has 200 hours flight time. 
He said that flying is a familiar 
situation since both his father and 
brother have pilot licenses. He added 
that it was not hard for him to decide 

on an aviation career. 

Ed Beacon with 1,000 hours flight 
time is a part-time flight instructor in 
the program. He told me he is the first 
aviator in his family. While his par- 
ents were not overjoyed at the thought 
of him majoring in aerospace tech- 
nology, they have accepted his choice 
of career. 

Both Beacon and Elliot told me that 
they enjoyed the opportunities the 
aerospace major offers them in both 
travel and experience. Flying is 
something you really have to enjoy in 
order to succeed, they agreed. 

1 asked them if a fear of flying is 
unusual for the beginning student. 
Elliot explained, "It's something you 
get used to or you get out." 

While there are aviation programs 
in Army and Air Force ROTO, a major 
in aerospace technology does not 
place the student under any type of 
military obligation. 

The major demands a great deal of 
academic effort, according to Beacon 
and Elliot. The FAA requires a high 
degree of competency before granting 
a pilot's license. 

Students in the aerospace program 
should have a good background in 
math and physics. Beacon and Elliot 
told me. The aerospace students I've 
seen are dedicated to their profession. 
They not only love flying, they are 
willing to study the principles they 
must know to become certified.

Contrasting majors 

I took a walk through the Business 

Administration Building the other day. 
I was surprised not to see a single 
gray flannel suit or crew cut. How- 
ever, one student did tell me that 
"some of us do have gray flannel suits, 
but we keep them in our closets and 
bring them out for special occasions." 

What I did find in the business 
building were students with definite 
goals in mind who are confident that 
there will be a job waiting for them 
when they leave here. 

Most of the business majors I talked 
to said they chose to major in that 
field becuase of the availability of 
jobs. A senior marketing major who 
had previously worked as a retail 
store manager said he chose marketing 
because "I thought it would have the 
most job opportunities." 

On the other hand, I talked to a 
student who had changed his major 
from marketing to art education. Dan 
Balan said he did not like the intense 


W mtii 

Although their school is masked in a cloud of 
controversy, business majors are confident a job 
will be waiting for them when they leave here. 

However, when we tried to photograph them 
or use their names in this story, they were 
reluctant to be associated with the school.

competition in marketing classes that 
made it difficult to get good grades. 
He said his grades are improving since 
he made the switch and that this will 
help him get into graduate school. He 
has a $6 an hour job at the A&P, so 
he's not worrying about the lack of 
jobs in art education. 

Business majors do a lot of work 
outside of class that helps them gain 
practical experience. Marketing ma- 
jors do simulation projects involving 
the use of computers. Finance majors 
often work on case studies. Account- 
ing majors solve problems that apply 
to theories they learn in class. How- 
ever, one student said doing the home- 
work can be a waste of time since the 
teachers explain everything in class 
the next day. "If 1 do the homework 
and get it wrong, 1 just get more con- 
fused when the teacher explains it," 
he said. 

All business majors think their par- 
ticular speciality is unique. Karen Di- 

Fiore, a senior marketing major, said 
marketing is "dynamic". "You have 
the most direct contact with people." 
A senior finance major defended his 
choice by saying that "all society ex- 
ists around business and all business 
exists around finance. Everyone 
makes an investment sometime in his 
life, whether it's buying a house or 
buying a car." A senior computer sci- 
ence major said his major is unique 
because "it's such a relatively young 
field that I'll have to keep on learning 
new developments even after I get out 
of school". 

If 1 could describe business majors, 
I'd have to say they are just about the 
most self-assured group of students I 
have ever seen. They all know exactly 
what they want to do when they get 
out of school career-wise, besides 
make a lot of money. One economics 
major told me, "We're realistic. Those 
people over in Bowman all walk 
around in a fog." 



Contrasting majors 

I searched like Diogenes, the 
mythological Greek who sought an 
honest man, through the tunnels of 
Cunningham for the typical biology 

I looked on, under and even through 
the microscopes which Biology 
students use in labs to investigate 
microscopic life. Into herbariums, 
aquariums and even tubes containing 
barium I peered. I watched and 
photographed as students bisected, 
trisected and by instructors were di- 
rected in their searches for various 
anatomical phenomena. 

Inside the labs in Cunningham's 
basement students experimented, 
while upstairs their companions 
listened and learned from lectures and 
lessons. I looked out the back toward 
the greenhouse where botanists grew 
hybrids and mutations. 

When I turned my search to the 
homo sapiens walking around, I 
learned some startling facts about 

these creatures who inhabit 

There, just aren't any typical biology 
majors. The students here are just as 
varied in size, shape, coloring and 
other physical characteristics as the 
rest of the population of KSU. They 
seem in general to be no more or less 
concerned with grades than say their 
peers in philosophy. 

They said they didn't particularly 
think they had to study any more or 
less than any other students, although 
a few did complain about rote 
memorization — but then don't we all? 

Although I failed in my search for a 
"typical biology major", a term 
Professor David Waller, 
undergraduate advisor laughed at, I 
did find that Biological Science majors 
actually like it here. 

Instead of complaining about their 
professors' inattention and unfairness, 
they told of the openness and 
availability of both instructors and 


professors. Instead of bitching about 
long lab hours, they expressed an 
appreciation for a hands on approach 
to learning. 

Students said that being able to 
participate in research currently being 
conducted in the department made 
them feel that they were working in a 
real world instead of just a make- 
believe academic environment. 

Interested students can participate 
in research in limnology, physiology, 
entomology, botany, zoology, biology, 
conservation fisheries and other 
related areas. 

Promising undergraduates are given 
undergraduate assistantships. They 
assist instructors in labs, another way 
for students to become involved in the 

Students enter biology to prepare 
for medical, research, conservation 
and veterinary related fields, but what 
keeps them in the Biological Sciences 
department? Faculty! Statements such 

as, "They are willing to share any 
little bit of knowledge with you." and 
"They make you realize that your 
dreams can become reality," keep 
cropping up in conversations with 
students. Dr. Foote and Professor 
Waller are frequently named as the 
"reasons I am in this department". 

Well, I sure am glad I talked to 
these students. I had thought statisfied 
students were extinct. I think I have 
found some of the reasons for their 
existence. But, I am also sure there are 
many more. 

Spending hours in labs and the greenhouse 
becomes a natural thing for biology students.

Contrasting majors 

"Philosophy is a persistent attempt 
to think things through," said Henry 
James, and with that quote in mind, I 
set off to the philosophy office on the 
third floor of Bowman Hall. I was 
searching for a pipe-smoking eccentric 
pondering the meaning of life with 
holes in the soles of his shoes and 
patches on his elbows. 

A degree in philosophy, according 
to Miss Steel, one of the philosophy 
professors, limits a person only in 
fields that require a technical or 
specific background. With the 
minduse employed in the discipline of 
philosophy, a graduate can tackle any 
job and do well. He possesses a broad 
background, and Miss Steel added, a 
person's mind has been broadened 
and sharpened by reading philosophy. 

Grad students realize that a job in 
philosophy is a fairy tale — there are 
"17 PhD's to each teaching position in 

Talking to graduate and 

undergraduate majors, I began to 
realize that they were serious about 
being there. They said, "Yeah, most of 
us are more serious and dedicated to 
our disciplines." They seem to possess 
an openness about philosophy, a 
happy consciousness, and a calmness 
that some said they had found when 
they entered philosophy. They also 
have a different angle on life. One 
graduate student told me he had gone 
into philosophy hoping it would 
answer pertinent questions of life. 
However, in the search for the 
answers, he found that the questions 
multiplied, with no answers 
forthcoming. He assured me this may 
be a sort of an answer. 


Many of the people who major in 
philosophy are drop-outs from other 
majors. One undergraduate told me he 
had been in political science, but had 
lost interest and transferred to philoso- 
phy because, "It lends itself to the 
entertainment of different views and 
opinions, and allows for more ques- 
tions to be raised." Also, philosophy 
requires an effort from everyone in- 
volved — even bright students are of- 
ten pressured. 

Everyone I spoke with agreed that 
philosophy is fun, a creative fun. 
There is creative stimulation in 
reading and comprehending 
philosophy, and writing lends itself to 
explorations of creativity. The joy of 
reading something again and again, 
and discovering something new each 
time, is unbelieveable. It's been 
likened to discovering a case of Coors 
on your doorstep. 

Philosophy tends to have a lot of its 
own vocabulary. The classes consist 

of lectures, discussions, and a lot of 
question-and-answer sections. 

Those who have never experienced 
a philosophy class say that it cannot 
teach them a thing. But by the end of 
the quarter they are conducting 
inquires into everything. Introductory 
courses either stimulate a person's 
interest or completely turn him off. 

Due to the subject matter and 
unique vocabulary there is a tendency 
to withdraw into the discipline. Miss 
Steel remarked, "Philosophy is of 
itself an art form, and philosophers 
themselves are artists." 

Besides a favorite pipe, a philosopher keeps a 
stack of well-thumbed volumes for 
contemplation (opposite, right).

Unique Classes 

Wild, Edible Foods 

Biology, history, art and 
photography students are all brought 
together in Wild, Edible Foods to 
exchange ideas on the joys of eating. 
Students willingly go to class on 
Saturday for a field trip in the rain to 
hunt mushrooms at West Branch State 
Park. They get muddy from head to 
toe collecting cattails for bread- 
making. The sweet smell of seeping 
spearmint tea fills their homes. 

The class is small to allow a "more 
intimate interaction with nature," said 
graduate student Wayne Zipperer, 
who teaches the class. It is offered on 
a pass-fail basis by the Experimental 

Lectures cover information about 
poisonous plants, survival techniques, 
vegetarianism, and locally-found, wild 
foods and their preparation. Students 
draw plant names out of a hat weekly 
and cross-reference the plant, its 
identifying features, where it can be 
found and its uses. Field trips are 
made to local areas such as Jennings 
Woods, Towner Woods, Allerton 
fields and a Streetsboro bog. 

At the feast at the end of the 
quarter wild, leek soup, lamb's quarter 
lasagna, cattail cookies, poke 
casserole, Japanese knotwood with 
wild strawberries, dandelion root 
coffee and rhubarb wine are served. 

Graduate student Debbie Lodge, 
who taught the class spring quarter, 
sees a tendency for people to alienate 
themselves from nature. She feels 
grateful for everything she has ever 
collected from the wild. She teaches 
the class to encourage this 
appreciation in others. 

Laura Klein, a junior in nature 
interpretation, liked the personal 
exchange of ideas in the class — a 
change from just book-learning. 


Natural Camp Crafts 

Natural Camp Crafts is an escape 
from monotone lectures and all night 
cramming for tests. This class in the 
Recreation Department requires more 
imagination. Creating puppets from 
paper bags and light bulbs, flour 
sculpting, and making egg carton 
critters and dolls from Pringle cans 
can't be learned from a book. 

Miss Laurel Wilcox teaches about 
50 crafts per quarter. She tries to 
encourage creativity, not enforce 
uniformity. After she gives 
instructions, students create their own 
designs. Most of the crafts are made 
from junk materials so cost is kept at 
a minimum. Their potential use in 
community programs is stressed. The 
crafts are used both as therapy and 
recreation and can be adapted to any 
age group or population. 

Having a permissive supportive 
atmosphere is one of her objectives in 
teaching the class. Students are 
encouraged to share ideas and critique 
one another's work. 

Cheryl Southworth, a graphic 
design major, said the class is good 
therapy. You can relax, not worry 
about grades and get the creative 
juices flowing again, she said.

It takes thought to be a lion. One 
wrong stroke and you are a cat, a dog 
or a monkey. Sometimes the results

harsh wipe of a cloth.

for a weekend with nothing but 20c."

Anatomy of Peaceful Change 

Stu Jacobs is concerned. That's why 
he is teaching a class offering an 
alternative to traditional education. 
He tries to be the kind of teacher he 
always wanted to have. Anatomy of 
Peaceful Change is in opposition to 
what he calls the digestion, 
regurgitation syndrone. 

There are no multiple choice tests 
to study for, and personal 
development takes priority over 

Five areas of change are discussed: 
individual, group, institutional, 
societal and world. For practical 
experience students are required to 
participate in one of three outside 
activities, a poverty plunge, life- 
plannig workshop or a political 
dynamics workshop. 

Fall quarter students were left to 
survive in a strange city for a 
weekend with nothing but 200. To 
approach people they were to assume 
the role of journalists covering the 
election. They had to get money for 
food and find a place to sleep. 

For accounting major Phil Smith the 
plunge was a chance to experience 
something different. Although the 
reactions of people he approached 
ranged from hostility to concern, Phil 
found it easy if you knew how to talk 
to people. He received $20 from the 
third person he approached — an 
elderly woman. 

The plunge is a form of 
consciousness - raising, Jacobs said. It 
takes students out of their sheltered 
environment and puts them in contact 
with the real people of life. 

Jacobs is trying to make education 
more humane. He hopes to make 
students more aware of their 
environment; what they as individuals 
can do to change it peacefully,

In the cafeteria I spend 20c of my 
last half-dollar and sit at the table 
near the window. Here there is no 
hum of people, but drifting voices and 
deeper laughter. A man with just one

meal, obviously having had more than 
just 50(1. (Alice Cone)

cars to be moved. Our trash in finally 
picked up. 

I eat a boiled egg and toast my last 
two slices of bread, then get an apple

I've got about forty-five minutes un- 
til class, and the sun has done its 
disappearing act again, so I think 
about heading for the Student Center. 
I'm not as hardy as the few brave 
souls who still sit on the grass to study 
or wait. Most people kill time indoors, 
drinking coffee or Coke, munching on 
candy bars, and sitting on the floor, or 
propping up the walls. (Mariann Ho- 

I can spot a camera and detect the 
snap of a shutter within 50 yards, but

"I'm going to have to play 
the role of a responsible

Observing the plaza from the fourth 
couch from the end on the second 
floor of the Student Center, it's like a 
silent movie below. The plaza and 
dormant fountain unfold the scene 
wrhere people, bikes and dogs move. 
It's the laughter from two couches 
down or the pages turning in the book 
being read on the couch next to you 
that you hear. (Mariann Hofer)

His gait slowed as he approached 
the break between the Student Center

the connecting footbridge, he turned 
to the left, quickly glanced at his

distance to the main entrance and 
entered. (Al Heiman)

something depraved like take the rest 
of that paycheck and go hitchhiking 
for two weeks. That would be all

a hold of reality. I'd miss all that work 
and a couple of nights chasing women

are all different. (Cindy Ficke) 

I draw faces. Classmates sigh and 
snicker and doodle and rustle papers 
and take notes and talk about the 
subject at hand. (Alice Cone) Even

It's nice to meet people's smiles and 
say hello even though I've never seen 
them before. People come and go.

people drift through here, they are 
worth my time to say hello. (Laurie

one tree has gone flaming yellow with 
black spots that turn out to be

trees are deep red, shining in the

All the buildings you can't stand 
during the day look better in the dark

tent on a lecture, or a solitary figure 
bent over a book. (Mariann Hofer)

Walking up and down deserted, 
dimly lit halls in buildings I have 
never been in before, I feel like a kid 
on his first trip to Macy's or even 
O'Neil's, peeking at all the neat stuff 
they keep in the chemistry, biology 
and physics buildings. All the offices 
and most of the classrooms are empty, 
and while listening to your feet pad 
around, each of us find something 
interesting like a stuffed squirrel, a 
lost notebook or strange equipment in 
a physics room. 

We next investigate a basketball 
game. Actually, there are two games, 
one at each end of the gym. All I hear 
is the hollow, dull thunk of the ball as 
it is dribbled down court, the slap of 
sneakered feet on the hardwood floor, 
and the occasional exploding breath 
of a player as he comes down from a 
rebound. Once in a while there is a 
shout, but most of the time it's the 
echoes of almost mechanical noises.

Walking around campus at night 
under a full, white moon with India 
ink clouds that drift over is something 
new for me. It's pretty cold when we

calming down, and the clouds are 
drifting off to rain somewhere else 
tomorrow. (Mariann Hofer)

Week One 

Impressions and Expectations 


My parents, and later, my high 
school counselor, all agreed that I 
should go to college — it would 
change me for the better. And that 
intrigued me — does it change a per- 
son overnight, or does it take the 
whole four years? 

It was one of those sunny 
Thursdays, and as 1 walked across the 
plaza, 1 stopped to talk to Priscilla 
Davis, a senior majoring in English. 

Her general comments ran along the 
line of enjoying life in the dorms, 
changing her major from education to 
library science, and that Kent, despite 
all the grumbling to the contrary, was 
inexpensive (a comment to be men- 
tioned often). 

Inside the Student Center, upstairs 
in the dining room, the crowd had 
thinned out some, and amid the clut- 
ter of lunch and textbooks, Peter La- 
veck gave me his impressions of edu- 
cation at KSU. 

He started at the branch in Ashta- 
bula, then transferred here, intent 
upon majoring in journalism. How- 
ever, he soon decided to drop that, 
and now leans toward psychology. 

He commented on the faculty that, 
for as little as some professors earn, 
they're dedicated to giving all they 
can. Also, he noted, he would like to 
see smaller classes, but that seemed 

pretty much just a dream. Then, in 
parting, he commented, "One thing — 
if I didn't enjoy being here, learning, I 
wouldn't bother to be here." 

Riding the stadium bus twice a day 
is a reality faced by many commuters. 
Jackie Brenner, a senior majoring in 
medical technology, says she would 
like the parking moved closer. But she 
also said she doesn't expect that to 
happen for years. 

She has found the people very 
friendly (another oft-repeated quote), 
and said that she was very excited to 
come back to school after dropping 
out for nearly a year. 

For every person I found who had 
stuck to his/her original career plans, 
I found someone who had changed 
along the way. 

Beth Ludeman, a fifth quarter sen- 
ior, started out to become a nurse, but 
will graduate with a degree in sociolo- 
gy, and become a social worker. She's 
a volunteer for Townhall II now, and 
finds it challenging. 

She came from a small town and 
came to accept things on the campus 
as they were. When asked about the 
administration, she responded, "I'm 
not too happy with them. Often I feel 
like I suffer under a lack of informa- 
tion about policies." 


Despite all the grumbling to the contrary, KSU is Peter Laveck, a junior, observed that for as little Like many others, Beth Ludeman, a fifth quarter

Over and over again, people said 
how friendly they found the people 
here. However, Sherry MacDonald, a 
freshman was an exception. She was 
sitting on a low wall when I ap- 
proached her. Living in a house in 
Kent owned by her father, she said 
she hadn't had time to meet many 
people, and the ones in her classes 
were always moving too quick to get 
to know yet. 

But smiling, she assured me she 
liked it here. "It's different from high 
school — the teachers are different — 
better. And there's a lot of freedom." 
Then she added, "It's a large spacious 
campus, which adds to the overall 
feeling of freedom." 

Chris Benzie, a freshman geology 
major, had lived in the South for a 
few years, although he is originally 
from Cleveland. 

To him, it just seemed logical to 
come to Kent State when he moved 
back up here. He enjoys the spacious- 
ness, but was surprised not to find 

many radicals. He did find, as he ex- 
pected, lots of parties. 

The frustrations of dealing with the 
administration were uppermost on 
sophomore Debbie Kline's mind when 
we talked. She and her dog had cov- 
ered, as she put it, "almost the whole 
campus", trying to get a class. 

While I petted her dog, she told me, 
"Trying to get this class, I've gone 
around in circles. Going to see the 
dean is like going to see the Wizard of 
Oz. You go there, fill out a sheet 
stating what you want, go perform 
some function, come back, and then 
maybe he'll see you." 

I interrupted freshman Scott 
Harper's studying to inquire about his 
feelings on Kent State. 

He hadn't declared a major - he 
said he would find something he liked. 
And when I asked what he expected 
to find here, he answered, "School." 
So when I next asked what he 
expected to find here, he naturally 
and easily replied, "A degree."

I cut through Rockwell Hall one 
afternoon and fell into conversation 
with Paul Okolish, an academic 
advisor. After introductions, I asked 
him why he thought students come 
here. Grinning, he replied, "The 
locale, the good programs, like the 
architecture and journalism 
departments, the idea that it's a state 
school, availability of financial aid, 
and just the campus itself. A lot of 
people come to see it and just fall in 
love with it." 

Then I asked the inevitable 
question: "Why are you here?" 

His answer came naturally. "I enjoy 
working with people, helping them. I 
can see the need for good, concerned 
academic advising. And you really get 
to know a lot about the university, for 
you have to learn a little about 
everything here." 

Dr. Paul Sites is a professor in and 
the chairman of the sociology and 
anthropology department. In response 

Underclassmen found many things at KSU. 
Sherry MacDonald (opposite, middle) found 
loneliness. Chris Benzie (opposite, middle left) 
found numerous parties, but not many radicals. 
The administration frustrated Debbie Kline 
(opposite, middle right). Scott Harper (opposite, 
bottom right) found what he expected. 
Dr. Paul Sites (middle) came to KSU because he 
foresaw a promising future in graduate studies. 

to the question, "Why do you think 
students come to Kent State?", he 
replied. There are three strong reasons 
I can think of immediately — 
proximity, cost and the strong 
departments in the university." He 
added, after a moment's thought, 
"Why go some place far and more 
expensive when you can get the same 
or better education close to home?" 

My next question quickly drew a 
smile from him, as I asked, "Why did 
you chose Kent?" 

He reflected a few minutes, then 
said, "In the 60's, when I first came 
here, I saw Kent as having a bright 
future in graduate studies. I could see 
it developing into a strong graduate 
institute. At the moment, I think we're 
bogged down, but it's only a 
temporary thing. I still think Kent will 
develop to its potential." 

So, after all the interviewing was 
over, and I looked over my notes, 1 
could see that change comes to people 
at different times, and sometimes not 
at all. But that four years of college 
does affect a person's perspective. 



Spotlighting a defensive tackle 


Smiling, senior defensive tackle Glenn Deadmond savors the Homecoming victory (opposite, top left) despite being kept out of the 
game by a painful injury (opposite, top right). He waits it out on the sidehnes with a friend (opposite, bottom left). Frequently double- 
teamed, Deadmond overcame the opposition to be ranked fifth in tackles for a loss in the Mid-American Conference (top).

Senior Glenn Deadmond was smil- 
ing as he explained his four-year in- 
volvement with the KSU football team 
— an involvement that has seen him 
develop into one of the best defensive 
linemen in the Mid-American Confer- 

"Basically I play for the scholarship. 
It's something you've go to go out and 
work for, that's what it comes down 
to," he said. "Of course, I enjoy the 
game. I've enjoyed it ever since I start- 
ed playing in high school. But after 
practice it's like after a regular eight- 
hour job — like you just got off work." 

The 6-1, 255 lb. senior might now be 
punching a clock for such bigtime 
football powers as Michigan State or 
Purdue if those schools had not 
sought out his talents as an offensive 
rather than a defensive palyer. For 
three years at Detroit Cooley High 
School, Deadmond played both posi- 
tions. But he preferred defense, and 
chose KSU over the others. 

"When you play defense, you're the 
one giving out the beating, estab- 
lishing the tempo." said Deadmond. 
"You're the aggressor. I like being in 
that position." 

As the team limped to a 4-7 season 
last year, dissention grew widespread 
among the players. Threats of a player 
walkout never materialized. But the 
charged atmosphere of that season, 
said Deadmond, is far removed from 
the feeling this season. 

"During the season, football is all 
you have on your mind. This season 
the players are very much into the 
game. Players and coaches can talk to 
one another. It's a relaxed atmop- 
shere," Deadmond said. 

"When you have a lot of younger 
players, there is generally more en- 
thusiasm about the game. That's what 
this team's got. 

"I guess the greatest thrill I've had 
here was the game this year against 
Miami," said Deadmond. "We have no 
trouble getting up for Miami; it's al- 
ways a big game for us. It's kind of 
like Ohio State-Michigan — you feel 
like everything is on the line. And 
then to win the game . . . That was all 

"In the last year, I've tried to im- 
prove my strength and quickness," he 
continued. "You go through a lot more 

punishment playing in the middle. 
Sometimes you have to play hurt. But 
again, that's really up to you, what- 
ever you can take. If it's just killing 
you, you take yourself out." 

Although KSU has supported its 
football teams in the past (particularly 
in Deadmond's freshman year when 
the Flashes finished second in the con- 
ference), home games are generally 
played before 20,000 or more empty 
seats. To Deadmond, sometimes it 
seems like a thankless job. 

"Oh, sometimes you wonder what it 
might have been like going some- 
where else. This just isn't a sports- 
oriented campus. I don't know what 
people here are interested in," Dead- 
mond said. 

"But there are people who are into 
sports," he continued. "And they are 
very cool about it, they express their 
concern. There are some loyal fans 

On the eve of his last game for KSU 
Deadmond wondered aloud about his 
past and future in the game of foot- 

"I guess it's really had a big effect 
on my life," he said. "Before I came to 
Kent, I was the quiet, shy type. But 
I've opened up through being around 
the other players. The game gets you 
close together with the players. "You 
hang together. I'm still not real bois- 
terous, but I've opened up some." 

"I'd like to give the pros a try," he 
said. "I like the Saturdays enough to 
stay with it. I don't really mind the 
other work that goes into it. But you're 
out there for the Saturdays." 

Suffering from an eye injury, Deadmond 
leaves the game temporarily to be carefully ex- 
amined by his coach (top left). 

Not all hard work and sweat, sometimes 
Deadmond clowns around with teammates (bot- 
tom middle). 

And when the team does well, he is happy. He 
says the game gets you close together with the 
players (opposite).

Variation of tradition 

Homecoming falls on a different 
day every year. This year Home- 
coming, Halloween, and the last day 
of Daylight Savings time fell on Octo- 
ber 30. 

Homecoming was first celebrated at 
KSU in 1929, although the traditional 
homecoming activities were not for- 
mally established until the next year. 

Many of the older traditions such as 
the football game are still retained. 
This year the Flashes humiliated East- 
ern Michigan 38-13. However, each 
year new events are added and older 
events are left behind. 

The cross country race for the cov- 
eted homecoming trophy is still in ex- 
istence, but the race has been trans- 
formed through the years into a wild 
steeplechase. The winners of this 
event receive the "Bowman Cup" 
which has been part of the home- 
coming tradition for more than a dec- 
ade. This year the "Apple Corps" won 
the trophy. 

In the battle for the Bowman Cup 
the Corps stuffed themselves into a 
Volkswagon and painted each other 

Students willingly cram themselves into a VW 
at the Student Center (top, left). Later in the 
Steeplechase, along with getting a quick bath, a 
student retrieves a greased pumpkin (top, right). 
The Alumni Band waits to hit the field at half- 
time of the Eastern Michigan game (bottom, 

from head to toe. They also ran a four 
legged race with three people, one 
racing backwards, swam the width of 
the pool while teammates held their 
feet, drank pitchers of beer, and re- 
trieved a greased pumpkin from a bar- 
rel of water. 

Homecoming tradition was com- 
pletely broken this year when no 
queen was selected. Andy Malitz, 
head of the All Campus Programming 
Board (ACPB) Homecoming Com- 
mitte, attributed this to the women's 

Lobbyists from Kent Women 
Against Coalition (KWAC) and other 
groups said that a queen contest was a 
"sexist thing", and they would not 
permit it — no matter how much of a 
tradition it was. 

In the past a bonfire, carnival, and 
12-foot spirit log have been used to 
celebrate homecoming. This year the 
KSU skydivers parachuted into the 
stadium for the second year, and the 
1976 distinguished teaching awards 
were announced at the Homecoming 


One social event which has become 
a tradition of Homecoming is a con- 
cert performed by a special singer or 
top band. The first concert featured 
Ralph Marterie and his Marlboro Or- 
chestra in 1956. Since then Louis Arm-

Black Homecoming 

Creation of tradition 

mj i 

Black Homecoming has been 
celebrated every year since 1970. Its 
purpose is to celebrate the richness of 
black students and their culture. 

Black United Students (B.U.S.), the 
Elite Ebony Soul, Incorporated, and 
All Campus Programming Board 
(ACPB) collaborated to present a week 
of activities November 7 through 
November 10. 

A need for transition in name and 
purpose was seen for this year's ball. 
Thus it was renamed Ebonite Ball and 
more emphasis was placed on the 
black women. 

The four queens, representing each 
class, were traditionally crowned at 
the Homecoming Ball. 

This year the queen contestants 
were judged on the basis of their 
creative expression of black 

womanhood and leadership qualities, 
along with their talent, and career 
goals and objectives. 

Karen Slade, a senior 
telecommunications major was 
crowned at the Ebonite Ball on 
November 7 in the ballroom. She read 
poetry in the talent contest. 

A fashion show was sponsored by 
B.U.S. on November 8 in the Kiva, and 
on the 10, Roy Ayers and Ubiquity 
performed, co-sponsored by ACPB 
and B.U.S. 

Approximately 400 people 
participated in the three days of 


Included in the festivities of Black 
Homecoming was a fashion show held in the 
Kiva (opposite, top, left). The Kent Gospel 
Singers perform at the fashion show, featuring 
soloist Darrell Campbell (Top right).

percussion during his performance at the

The homecoming court, one representative 
from each class, was presented at the Ebonite 
Ball (opposite, top, left) Completing the Ebonite 
Ball was the crowning of the Black Homecoming 
Queen. Karen Slade, a senior majoring in 
telecommunications, was selected as Queen 
based on expressions of black womanhood, 
qualities of leadership and talent (left).

Big kids' trick or treat 

At 6:30 p.m. I go to get my face 
painted. I am wearing a blue tunic 
with black and white designs. Its 
crotch comes to my knees and its 
sleeves are not stitched underneath. 
They are like wings; the matching 
skull cap and pants are tight. Navy 
knee socks are pulled over my pants, 
and a red jacket hangs over my 
shoulders. Parent-types leave a frat 
house, and I remember it is 

Acrylic paint colors sit in plates in 
front of a long mirror that leans 
against the bedroom door. The artist's 
face is shiny with cold cream. She 
paints it an African mask, using each 
color carefully. I draw designs on 
paper and mix whiskey and Seven-up. 
The Roman comes home. She cannot 
decide whether to drive alone to a 
party in Cleveland or go with us. She 
finally leaves, but comes back because 
she cannot find the address. 

The painted lady paints my face 
blue, black and white, suggesting the 
flow of my costume on my face. 
Superman and bumble bee arrive. 
They paint their faces and take 
pictures. I decide I am a Liberian 
Monk. We wait for the ear. She 
arrives instead an upside-down man, 

bringing a normal human friend. 

We drive to the Ice Arena and run 
from the cars in excitement and 
embarassment. The first period of the 
hockey game has just ended. Everyone 
looks at us. We are loud and laughing. 
We talk to people and watch a few 
minutes of the game. We are glad not 
to be working tonight. 

When we enter the 11th Frame 
everyone claps and the band leader 
acknowledges old friends. The 
football-alumni people are dressed-up 
and happy. It is Homecoming and 
victory time. It is Halloween. 

We sing-a-long with Dave. We 
drink. A short man with a shiny head 
and rosy cheeks buzzes at the bee and 
swivels his hips. He takes the dance 
floor to shuffle and tap. He takes the 
mike to sing those old songs. He has 
been sick and tonight is his first night 
back at the bar. Everyone loves him. 

We follow the sax player in a line 
that curves and claps singing "When 
the Saints Go Marching In". At 2 
a.m. the last acknowledgements are 
made; the last songs are sung. You're 
nobody 'till somebody loves you. 
Clocks turn back to 1 a.m. The girls 


are ready to play more, singing as we 
drive away, but I go home to sleep. 

It is Halloween and after I've slept 
two hours a blue ghost knocks at my 
door. He is wet from walking in the 
rain and wasted from drinking tequila. 
He wants to show me Kent. We wrap 
in his poncho and hold each other up. 
We are not cold. Few cars drive on 
the overpass; none light Depeyster or 
Erie. The streets are black and shiny 
with rain and lamplights. 

We look in Jerry's Diner and the 
ghost sees some old friends, so we go 
in to talk. They are tired and 

disappointed after a party. I remember 
the bearded man. The waitresses, 
costumes dripping with Halloween 
make-up, beg us to leave. They are 
weary. It is their hour to clean and 
close. I feel sorry for them and pull 
the ghost away. 

We refuse a ride and walk a block 
to Franklin Street. It is as deserted as 
the old train depot. We stand on the 
building's river-side under the 
protective overhanging roof. We cross 
the tracks, lean on the rail and watch 
the river. Its water doesn't fall since 
the wall is open. It gushes. We look 

for trains. It is 4 or 5 a.m., and 
Halloween. The whistle sounds 
pleasantly eerie. 

It's the one night when people can indulge in 
their fantasies. KSU vets re-enact the Marx 
brothers' madness (opposite, top left). 

In Walter's two students can, for the night, 
run away to the circus life (middle, left). Two

Election '76 

Gerald Ford versus Jimmy Carter 

It did not rain November 2, 1976 in 

Gerald Ford had hoped it would. 
Republican strategy ("game plans" as 
the former All-American's aides 
described it) predicted that Ford must 
win in Ohio to defeat Jimmy Carter; 
they contended that Ford would collect 
the state's 25 electoral votes if Mother 
Nature cooperated and kept Carter 
supporters home. 

In other words, the Bicentennial 
year was ushered out with politicians 
hoping the public "didn't care" and 
"wouldn't" vote. Although this at first 
seems like a haphazard way to decide 
the nation's future for four years, it is 
actually typical in a race that was 
conducted in an atmosphere like that 
of a game show. 

Ford and Carter both spent a lot of 
time (and a lot more money) in Ohio 
trying to attract various voter groups. 
Campaigners such as Birch Bayh and 
Howard Metzenbaum visited the KSU 

campus Fall quarter stumping for 
Georgia's answer to Horatio Alger. 
Neither drew a large crowd, but at 
least they knew where they were. If 
Ford had spoken at KSU and referred 
to it as Bowling Green, he might have 
lost more than his sense of direction. 

I pictured students filing slowly 
between the Student Center and 
Bowman Hall during an autumn 
drizzle and wondered if the 
campaigners had taken into account 
students who might not be deterred 
from voting by an insignificant factor 
like the weather. Other minor factors 
such as the qualifications of the 
candidates deterred them, several 
nonvoting students said. Seems as if 
the qualifications most campaigners 
cared about were those of the other 

"I don't think students hesitated to 
vote for any conscious particular rea- 
son, but many didn't because of an 
unconscious reason — they felt that it 

didn't make any difference who was 
in office. Things would always be 
hopeless," a campus bus passenger 

"Obviously many people thought 
their vote would make a difference, 
but I think that view was advanced 
and publicized by the media — the 
press said it would be close, so it 
was." he replied, shrugging his shoul- 
ders as he climbed off the bus. The 
doors slid shut and the bus began 
rolling again, its occupants sitting in 
their silent, dazed worlds; I watched 
and wondered how many voted with- 
out really understanding the candi- 
dates and issues. 

"There was a lot thrown at us in 
such a short time; I don't see how the 
average person could absorb it all," an 
education major said. "I voted just 
because I felt responsible for making 
an intelligent choice. I was worried 
about those kind of people who vote 
without any real idea of what the 
candidate plans to do. I don't trust the 
other guy, I guess," she added. 

She seemed sure that "ignorant vot- 
ers" were abundant. 

One person who fell in this category 
told me, "Since I'm living in Kent I 
decided to register and vote here in- 
stead of in my home in Massillon. I 
kept up on the Carter-Ford race and 
knew enough about Taft and Metzen- 
baum, but I felt foolish in the voting 
booth when I realized I didn't know 
anything about those state issues or 
the local candidates. I left most of 
them blank because I had no idea 
which of the choices was the most 
sensible ... or the least nonsensical." 

Several persons said they chose 
Carter or Ford for a single or a few 
reasons rather than supporting the en- 
tire platform. 

Reasons cited included Carter's 
stand for a blanket pardon of Vietnam 
draft evaders. Ford's pardon of Rich- 
ard Nixon, Ford's verbal slips 
throughout the campaign, and Carter's 


alleged "fuzziness" on the issues. 

The anti-Washington sentiment that 
Carter espoused for 22 months before 
November 2, 1976 apparently did have 
an effect — besides Ford's defeat, 
about two dozen incumbant Congress- 
men were defeated. "1 think people 
just got sick and tired of the way they 
(imcumbents) ran the nation without 
listening to their constituents," a polit- 
ical science student said. "Carter and 
the others weren't elected because of 
who they were, but because they rep- 
resented change — or at least a chance 
for change," he commented. 

Students expressed interest in the 
presidential debates; those who 
watched for enlightenment and infor- 
mation were usually disappointed, 
while those who sought entertainment 
and a good time were not let down. 

Those interviewed often said the de- 
bates were a draw, and most thought 
the media had over-publicized the de- 
bates' importance. 

Another common view seemed to 
be, "Ford and Carter didn't change 
anyone's minds with their debate per- 
formances, but they reinforced and 
encouraged their backers' support." 

Supporters. The people who spend 
endless hours assembling and posting 
innumerable yard signs and distribute 
enough leaflets to make the Jehovah's 
Witnesses jealous. 

Kent Students Democrats, Students 
for Carter, Students for Ford, and the 
KSU Republican Club spent most of 
their time going door-to-door, canvass- 
ing by phone and manning informa- 
tion tables in the Student Center. 
Were they successful? We'll know by 
1980, unless that "vision of America" 
acquires astigmatism at an early age. 

Depending on who you talk to. Car- 
ter's victory (and the general ascen- 
sion of Democrats to power in Con- 
gress and statehouses) was either luck, 
skill or . . . well . . . politics. But, then 
again, who's to say what exactly 
swung the election to the orthodont- 

ists' dream? 

The patrons of Jerry's Diner, for 

"It was definitely a foulup in those 
new voting machines," said one 
customer who seemed to be speaking 
to his coffee cup more than to me. 
"Whenever they bring in that com- 
plicated, computerized stuff, accuracy 
goes right out the door." 

I asked him how he had reached 
that conclusion and he started mumbl- 
ing something about how the same 
forces that caused the loss of sound in 
the first debate were responsible for 
incorrect vote tallying. He was still 
mumbling when I left. 

The punch-card voting system. I 
compared the campaign to a game 
show earlier, the new voting arrange- 
ment resembles some sort of Parker 
Brothers game, for 12 to 14 year olds. 

Speaking of technological accom- 
plishments, anyone who watched the 

three networks' coverage the election 
evening (and interest in the election 
was demonstrated by the large num- 
ber of people who spent the evening 
glued to the television screen) was 
probably awed by the fancy equip- 
ment, lit maps and whatnot that pro- 
vided a swarm of useless figures and 
statistics for the braodcasters to ana- 
lyze, ie. CBS' Dan Rather made this 
astute statement: "There are more Re- 
publicans than people." 

The evening wore on and it began 
to appear that Ford would lose more 
than his voice. Just after 3 a.m. Carter 
supporters went to bed when he was 
announced the winner; and everyone 
outside of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. 
breathed a yawn of relief. 

And, as usual, Walter Cronkite sum- 
med it up, "That's the way it was."

Olds Resigns 

Leaving, not going 

He looked like a college president: 
tall, reserved and nearly always 

When I began covering his 
administration as a Daily Kent Stater 
reporter, he often referred to me as his 
"alter ego." 

And at the beginning of the 
academic year, no one on campus 
thought Glenn A. Olds would resign 
his post two months later. No one 
thought the university would be 
rocked by controversy, hints of 

illegalities and scandals. 

In September, Olds was proceeding 
with the business of his 
administration; with tuition, class size 
and collective bargaining. 

A philosopher always. Olds had 
difficulty coming to terms with 
bureaucratic realities. He was a lover 
of analogies but a poor judge of 
human behavior and motivations. 

His charge in coming to this 
university was itself a philosophical 
one: to heal the wounds of May 4, 

1970. But could one man turn around 
the sentiments of an entire era of 
unrest, distrust and dissidence? 

It was a charge he somehow carried 
out. The campus returned to 
normalcy, and a kind of "do not 
disturb" silence settled everywhere. 
Apathy, people called it. 

Then Kent State University shot to 
the headlines again, only this time. 
Olds' administration was under fire. 

He denied charges that a doctoral 
degree had been "bought" by personal 


favors and that university resources 
may have been misused. 

And those denials v^^ere the reason 
his resignation at a regularly 
scheduled Board of Trustees' meeting 
came as such a shock. 

Olds served as university president 
for six years. He came to a campus 
clothed in suspicion and left it that 
same way. 

But in between those times, Olds 
provided KSU with the type of 
president it needed. A United Nations 

diplomat. A Methodist minister. A 
man not afraid to talk with students. 
A public speaker. And above all, a 
philosopher. After the tragedy of May 
4, 1970, the high ideals of a 
philosopher were desperately needed. 
And now people talk of having a 
president whose qualities are 
bureaucratic ones. An efficient 
administrator. A person who feels 
comfortable in dealing with computer 
output data instead of students. A 
person who speaks better over the 

telephone than publicly. A person of 
the times. 

And Glenn Olds? "I don't know 
what I'm going to do, and I don't 
really care," he told me. Taking a fully 
philosophical stance with reality. Olds 
believes his new niche in society will 
find him; it will not be the other way 
The many faces of President Glenn Olds.

Eating, Scarfing, Chowing down 

Much discussed, and usually much 
ignored in relation to our everyday 
living is food. Our next meal is often 
forgotten, or passed over until it 
demands attention in a variety of 

Dr. Jay Cranston, director of the 
Health Center, expressed surprise that 
students get as much nourishment as 
they do, considering their eating 
habits. He is quick to add 
malnutrition is not an element of KSU 

He prefers to call it "disnutrition", 
eating too much of the wrong things, 
rather than not enough of the right 
things. Students obtain nutrition from 
products such as "spongy American 
bread" which is so enriched it 
compensates for deficiencies 

Providing the central chow line for 
many students are various cafeterias. 
Designed for apporpriate nutrition, the 
system falls apart because students 
choose their own menu. They 
consider cost or choose foods purely 
for their taste. Vegetables aren't 
particularly fascinating to many 
students, and the "balanced" meals 
they consume are too high in 
carbohydrates and fats and too low in 
B vitamins. 

Quite a few journey elsewhere to 
settle stomach grumblings. A wide 
array of restaurants exist to satisfy 
this need. 

Convenience and cost are important 
to students, but with few exceptions 
not much else seems to matter. 

The Brown Derby, east of town, 
doesn't look as though it would hold 

much attraction for financially 
strapped students, but three dollars 
can be turned into a stomach- 
stretching marathon at the salad bar. 

Jerry's Diner looks as though it 
would dare students to enter. Actually 
the reverse is true. The mid-40's 
Hoboken decor is accented by mid- 
50's menu prices. Entertainment is 
often provided by the customers 
themselves in the form of loud 
arguments. But aside from the 
advantages of location and hours, a 
fiercely loyal student cult has 
developed around Jerry's. 

Certain establishments which 
"seem" student oriented do well also. 
Patronizing a vegetarian restaurant 
often means becoming subject to the 
harsh stands these places take on the 
question of health. 

The Red Radish shares these strong 
commitments to health, but the 
atmosphere is far more relaxed, far 

more friendly, far less snarling. A 
single sign asks politely that smokers 
abstain. The only bit of menu politics 
is an introductory paragraph which 
expresses concern for feeding an 
already over-populated world. 

Beginning with relish trays and 
tabouli salad, the menu boasts of main 
dishes (many rice oriented) with 
names such as Hoppin John and Staff 
of Life. They even offer a vegetarian 
Rueben sandwich. Carob and banana 
smoothies or fruit mists complete the 
unique meal which can be enjoyed 
even by those who are far too 
carnivorous to become vegetarians. 

However, Dr. Cranston warns that 
"the routine offerings are simply not 
complete in protein." The menu 
variety and provision for dairy 
products at the Red Radish should 
ease the nutrition problem there 

East of town a bar known as 
Carson's was once a meeting place for 
several academic departments in the 
early '70's. It has become the Tavern, 
expanded its food offering 
considerably, and increased its 
student patronage many-fold. 

An attractive "happy hour" 
arrangement, interesting menu, 
agreeable prices and informal 
atmosphere set it off as a valid 
location for student gatherings. The 
Tavern has a certain time-less quality. 

Important to a review of this type is 
the plastic fork — plastic, smile world 
of the fast food chains. Amid 
philosophical objection to the pin- 
neat-mechanical-packaged food 
phenomenon, most students shrug 


Serving a balanced meal in on-campus cafeterias is a major problem, especially when glazed doughnuts go faster than the main entree 
(opposite, middle). 

Since the Red Radish opened its doors, it has been comitted to vegetarian cuisine. "The only bit of menu politics is an introductory 
paragraph which expresses concern for feeding an already overpopulated world." (top).

their shoulders and reply, "it's quick, 
it's cheap." 

With competition causing them to 
branch out and offer more, "quick and 
cheap " has become relative in many 
cases. But the amazing consistency of 
MacDonald's and the efficiency of 
Burger King continues to succeed. 

These dazzling establishments 
receive severe criticism over nutrition. 
Dr. Cranston is not so quick to 
condemn. He points to a study 
conducted recently which found that 

three meals a day of fast food (burger, 
fries, shake) is deficient only in 
vitamin C. 

Rarely do students eat three of these 
meals in a day. Often only one trip is 
made to Burger Chef. But students 
have survived for a number of years, 
and probably will continue to survive 
through these nutritional debates. 

Others prefer to do their own 
cooking, relying on convenience food 
of the soup, sandwich, potato chip 
and coke variety which "don't make it 

at all." But whatever the individual 
preference, be it cafeteria, restaurant, 
or home cooking, it is difficult to 
compose a diet which is agreeable to 
taste, fits the budget and is sufficient 
in nutrition. 

Student life revolves around the 
process of education. Education in 
nutrition, not fad diets, can do much 
to aid us in the groggy, late night book 
sessions in which the abuse of our 
own digestive systems becomes the 
most apparent. 



Boozing, Chugging, Passing out 


Why do people, or specifically, why 
do KSU students frequent the 
downtown bars? — there are as many 
reasons as people in the bars on a 
good-time Saturday night. 

Kent possesses a varied group of 
bars, each just a little different from 
the one across the street or across 
town. And there are parties that can 
blossom into madness on any given 

Ray's and Walter's open their doors 
at 8:30 a.m. for breakfast, and don't 
close until 1:30 a.m. 

At night business picks up in Ray's, 
but it still has the feeling someone can 
come in alone, have a few beers and 
be left to their own meditations. It's 
homey, open and brighter than some 
other bars. One of the bartenders said, 
"It's not so much a "bar" bar. There 
isn't much hustling, it's just a place to 
come and talk." 

Walter's is almost an institution. At 
night it's like sardines in the can, 
especially weekends. The atmosphere 
is like Ray's, except noisier and 
crazier. There's a family feeling where 
everyone knows everyone else, the 

jukebox is blaring and the pinball 
machines are clanging and flashing. 

The campus has its own bar, the 
Rathskeller, in the basement of the 
Student Center. The guy at the door 
said that a lot of people come down 
because it's convenient — "bad 
weather means we do good business — 
they don't have to drive or walk far." 
Also, the students can purchase pizza 
or sandwiches with food coupons. As 
a matter of fact, he said, a lot of 
people come down just to eat. 

Like the Rathskeller, the Loft has 
pizza and beer. Downstairs can be 
found the pizza, and upstairs, the i.d. 
checker says, lots of lonely, frustrated 
people can be found among the 
crowd. Somewhere along the way the 
Loft got the reputation as a "hustle" 
bar, and inside are booths full of girls, 
booths full of guys, guys cruising 
slowly, and a few new couples 
appearing out of the shadows. The 
beat of the jukebox is steady. 

The Townhouse and Deck are only 
three blocks from campus. The 
Townhouse is spacious with two 
levels. On the top level a square bar 

leads to, according to the bartender, a 
lot of, "Hey, buy the guy across from 
me a drink." 

The Deck, next door and below, 
shares a common atmosphere. It's a 
little noisier, and a slight fog drifted 

Stocked up and ready for anything, behind the 
bar at Walter's a tempting array of bottles is 
displayed (opposite, top). Three KSU students 
start their night at the Loft shortly after it opens 
(opposite, bottom).

the patrons listened to recorded 

Even closer to campus is the Krazy 
Horse, Kent's disco. It has a dance 
floor, multi-banded light wall, 
bandstand to hold the stereo 
equipment and student disc jockeys. 
The walls are painted different 
exaggerated scenes and a bartender 
says the big draw is the disco. He 
added his thought, "Some girls come 
in to get picked up — there's a definite 
hustle atmosphere. The guys come in 

Filthy McXasty's appeals to just 
about the same crowd. It has live 
bands and reportedly sells more beer 
than the other bars. Usually two or 
three bands alternate each week. 

A fair walk from the other bars. 
Pancho Villa's gets pretty packed, 
depending on the band that's in town. 
It's dim. smoky and the bands perform 
in a separate room from the bar. so 
some peace can be found there. 

Considered to be a "date" bar by 
the owner the Dome has a large dance 
floor and out-of-town bands. 

J.B.'s up and down re-opened this 
fall. Downstairs the Immortal 
Porpoises play, while upstairs it's 
business as usual with 15-60-75. Both 
levels have dance floors which 
quickly fill with g\Tating bodies. 

The Stone Jug. formerly Eddies' also 
has live music, often from the High 
Flyers, a local band. 

The Ron-de-vou, next door to J.B.'s 
livens up around 1:30 a.m.. since it's 
the only bar with a 2 o'clock license 
on Water St. Then it gets crowded and 
crazy as people pick up one more beer 
or drink before going home to sleep 
off downtown Kent. 

Most parties, on and off campus, 
spring from groups fo friends together 
to celebrate some occasion, or just 
because there's nothing to do. They 
grow by the passing of, "if you're tired 
of downtown, come on over. " 


On campus dorm parties permits 
are issued from Moulton Hall 
residence services. Mary Bruce 
estimated 20 permits are issued each 

So life in Kent includes drinking, 
and there will never be a single or 
even a dozen reasons for it. 

When I asked, "Why do you drink?" 
my friends answered, "because it's 
there, and it's usually good."

Snoozing, Napping, Loving 

Sleep is a necessity for life, accord- 
ing to Collier's Encyclopedia. Brit- 
annica describes sleep as a condition 
of rest during which there is a renew- 
al of energy that has been expended 
in the hours of wakefulness. 

Last Monday 1 began to study the 
sleeping habits of KSU students. I fo- 
cused my study on where they slept. I 
asked friends and acquaintances, 
"What kind of bed do you have? " 

"Would you like to see it?" my 
friends answered. I explained that I 
was working on a story about sleeping 
and what else occurs in or on beds. I 
intended to study the person's bed in 
the context of his room and personal 

My correspondents gained interest. 
"Sure, 1 would be glad to show you 
my bed, but it's not unusual." 


I continued to probe. "Did your 
andlord supply it? Is it borrowed? Is 
s big? Small?" 

As I explained to Scott Wolf, the 
•esident advisor on the ninth floor of 
iCoonce Hall, I was looking for beds 
which are typically unique. "Where 
io KSU students sleep? WTien? With 

As I expected, Scott has an uncom- 
iionly neat room. His bedroom is so 
small that he has folded the legs of his 
Ded under and put the bed and 
springs on the floor to save space. 

Leebrick rooms are so confining that 
several residents have built lofts to 
lold their mattresses so they have 
Tiore room to move about. 

Clark Hall residents Duff Lind, N'ick 
Dragash, Reid Lewis and Tom Durst 
were not satisfied with their uniform 

bunk beds. They set up criss-cross af- 
fairs with their beds to make better 
use of available space. 

When I walked through Manchester 
in search of unique beds I found 
much the same approach. Students 
need more room. Mark Judy and Scott 
Anderson rearranged dorm furniture 
to suit their own needs and person- 
alities. They rested one end of the 
upper bunk on a dresser and sat a 
desk and lamp underneath. Down the 
hall Paul Shinkle raised his bed off 
the ground by placing rocks under the 

Even if the bed is supplied, the stu- 
dents must furnish sheets, blankets 
and bedspreads. When Mark Midei 
moved from the dorm to Glen Morris 
he had to buy all new sheets to fit the 
extra-long beds. 

Some students solve the dilema by 
sleeping on the floor. Dan Goldfarb 
says only one person in his house 
sleeps in a bed. He said sleeping on 
the floor is comfortable and cheap. 
When I asked if he could afford a bed. 
he said, "I can't afford to go to school, 
but I'm doing it."

The bed is a useful, but expensive 
piece of furniture. However, it is 
important to consider that we spend 
about one third of our lives sleeping. 
We must sleep whether we have a bed 
or not. 

Students fall asleep in many places. 
My family has always insisted eight 
hours of sleep are necessary to function 
efficiently. Apparently some of the 
people in my classes aren't getting 
their eight hours. They nod off during 
lectures or catch a few winks in the 
hall between classes. They could 
probably benefit more from an hour 
of sleep than some of these lecture 

The sleeping habits of KSU students 
are not much different from those of 
most other college students. Some still 
sleep with teddy bears or stuffed 
animals. Most like to stay up late and 
sleep late. 

In the middle of my last all-nighter I 
wondered if college students were the 
only ones awake at that hour. Then I 
remembered that many businesses op- 
erate around the clock with night shift 

One of the most difficult 
adjustments for some college students 
is sharing their room. Not only must 
they share the bathroom with more 
people than ever before, they have 
between one and three roommates to 
fight with over lights out. 

And of course, college is often seen 
as a time of loose morals and open 
sex. While I haven't seen any loose 
morals or open sex, I do know many 
students sleep with a member of the 
opposite sex for the first time at 
college. The opportunity is there. 
When it's late, and roommates aren't 
home or his bed is closer (and it's 9° 
outside) they naturally sleep where it's 
most convenient. 

There aren't as many one night 
stands as I expected. Most sleeping 
arrangements evolve from long term 
relationships. The majority of students 
have been influenced in some way by 
their parents' morals. 

Living together is not as much in 
style as it was, although there are two 
distinct attitudes (sometimes I think 
divided between males and females). 
Marriage relationships are viewed 

more seriously than in the past. Before 
marrying, students want to know all 
about their future mate — to see if he 
will be a good or bad roommate or 
next to impossible to live with. After 
all, the only way to change roommates 
is divorce. 

KSU is quite conducive to shared 
sleeping arrangements. Every dorm 
began the year with 24 hour visitation 
on weekends, and some have 24 hours 
visitation on weekdays. Of course, 
most off-campus students can impose 
their own visitation rules. The only 
losers in the sleeping game are those 
who live at home, (but they can date 
someone who doesn't). 

Apparently, some of my classmates aren't 
getting their eight hours. Falling asleep in the 
Snack Bar (middle left) and in lecture A

hastily left their rooms to rush to classes

Watching, Listening, Reading 

She sat there like a zombie, eyeing 
the object in front of her. 
Occasionally her fingers moved 
towards the soft, grey keys, 
commanding the green-letter screen to 
cough up more information. Other 
than that her body was motionless, 
her eyes glued to the magnificent 
purveyor of what was pertinent to her 
at that moment. She was oblivious to 
the hubbub of activity surrounding 
her and unaware of the line of angry 
eyes glaring at her and waiting to 
experience her obvious delight. 

This scene is from the KSU library 
where students now have the 
assistance of a computer terminal to 
find books, whether they are in the 
KSU library or libraries across the 

"It's remarkable how students will 
sit and play with the computer for 
hours. They are just fascinated with it. 
But we have many complaints that 
students take too much time at the 
terminal. We should get more," said a 
library reference aid. 

But the computer terminal is just 
one indication of how totally involved 
modern students' intimate relationship 
with the wonders of electronic media 
has become. 

KSU incorporates computer 
registration, computer library book 
finding terminals and programs in 
electronic music composition. 

Perhaps the most obvious indication 
of our fondness for the nature of 
electronic media is the rising trend of 
movie, tv and music buffs. 

According to KSU sociology 
professor Dr. Jerry Lewis, the area of 
northeast Ohio has the highest 
concentration of movies in the 
country, both tv and theatre. And KSU 
is right on the mark with Tuesday, 
Thursday and weekend cinemas year 

"Movies are big around here," said a 
spokesman for All Campus 
Programming Board. "And it really 
dosen't seem to matter what the 
movie is, people will come. I think 
some of them just go to movies to be 
going to movies." 

In a 1973 sutdy. Dr. Lewis 
questioned 2.3 percent of KSU 
students about why they attend 
movies. When asked if they went for 
entertainment, about 88 percent said 
yes. Nearly 75 percent said they did 
not go for relaxation. Only 7 percent 
said they watch movies to escape 
from reality. 

While students enjoy hours of 
movies, they don't relax or escape the 
realities of their everyday lives — 
perhaps this is because film media has 
become only an extension of their 
everyday lives. 

Possibly the greatest indication of 
the role of media in our lives comes 


from television, instant entertainment. 
A flick of the switch and the message 
is there. The President of the United 
States is in your dorm room. Scarlet 
O'Hara and Rhett Butler are racing 
through flame-swept Atlanta and the 
word for tomorrow is sunny and 

If a lot of students are in the 
movies, more are glued to tv screens 
across campus. A random sampling of 
60 KSU students shows that the 
majority watch tv, information and 
entertainment splitting as the boob 
tube's drawing card. 

In the straw poll, 48 said they watch 
tv. Of the 45 who turn on, 27 said they 
tune in regularly. Twenty-five said 
they do so as an informational source 
to catch the 5 or 11 o'clock news or 
documentaries. The others said their 
reason for idiot box watching was 
relaxation and entertainment. 
Remarkably, 42 of the 60 do not 
regularly read newspapers except for 
the Daily Kent Stater and only a few 
more read weekly news magazines. 

Students explain, "I only watch for 
good programming and specials." "TV 
gets news so much faster than 
newspapers. By the time you see it in 
a newspaper, it's old news." 

Information, entertainment, relaxation . . .

replacing books on their bookshelves." (top)

computer terminal to find books." (opposite)

Can colleges keep up with the 
media - with the milestones in 
electronic circuitry and decreased aid 
to universities? Are students learning 
as much in classes as they are from 
the lyrics of rock music? 

Music involvement becomes more 
popular every year in the campus 
community. A Kent Community Store 
salesman said record sales are up 8 
percent over last year. A visit to many 
student residences finds that stereos, 
speakers and radios are gradually 
replacing books on their bookshelves.

Worshipping, Studying, Living 

Students bring much more to Kent 
than furniture, plants and sentimental 
knickknacks. They bring their 
philosophies and beliefs. They bring 
themselves — what they have become 
after 18 or so years of influence by 
family and friends. 

For many students, religion has 
been a heavy influence. Some bring 
their faith with them and look for 
ways to practice and share it. Some 
find their religion here for the first 
time with the guidance of new friends. 
Still others may change their religion 
after long, personal searching. 
However it happens, God is still very 
important to many people at KSU. 

Students find different ways of 
expressing their faith. One junior at 
KSU takes advantage of the services 
provided by Newman Center. After 12 
years of religious education at 
Catholic schools she said it feels quite 
natural to go to church every week. 

When Newman Center asked for 
volunteers to teach Sunday School she 
did. It is hard to explain religious 
concepts to young children, she said. 

Patti Bukovan shares her faith with 
others through Campus Crusade. This 
on-campus organization is geared to 
helping others find Christ. There are 
Bible Studies where I go to meet with 
other believers, she said. Besides 
reading the Bible, talking about 
problems and life, we are taught how 
to share our faith with others. 

Her faith was not very important to 
her as she grew up even though her 
family was strictly Roman Catholic. In 
her sophomore year at KSU a friend 
showed her the way, she said. 

After years of being Jewish, Linda 
Goodman said she felt something 
missing. She read, and studied, and 
finally prayed to see the truth. 


Now she has accepted Christ as her 
personal savior. She calls herself a 
Completed Jew. The modern Jew says 
the Messiah has not come because 
there is still war and pestilence, she 
said. As a Completed Jew I feel that 
Christ has shown himself. The first 
coming was to prepare us for the 
second coming. That is the difference, 
she said. I am still Jewish. 

For Linda Goodman her own 
individual feelings are most 

Ted Lebowitz is a Jew concerned 
with keeping religion on a personal 
basis. Ted, a sophomore, said religion 
has become mass produced and 

He talked about prayer as a chance 
to say to God what I feel and get 
feeling back. He spoke of being able 
to feel the Sabbath, to experience its 

Instead of doing school work he'll 
relax or do something special for the 
Sabbath. Usually he prays alone and 
plays his guitar. On occasion he has 
played his guitar at Hillel, but 
generally he prefers to have his own 
private service. 

These students, like others at KSU, 
are actively living their faith. Some 
participate with large numbers of 
people, others practice their religion 
in solitude. What is most important is 
that God is important to manv people 
at KSU. 

The Gideons are a familiar sight on campus, 
passing out pocket-sized New Testaments to 
anyone who wants one. The green covered 
books are given just to college students by the 
non-profit organization (preceding page). 

Ted Lebowitz said he would like to break 
down the institution of religion and see people 
get excited about feeling Jewish (top).

February 3, 1977 


Alarms are never pleasant. I think 
some sadistic engineer spends endless 
hours in a clock factory to ensure that 
each buzzer has the most nasal, 
grating sound available. (Jim Crowley) 

Well, it's the day after Groundhog's 
Day I tell myself as the radio alarm 
reminds me it's 8:30 a.m. by filling my 
head with Al Stewart at hair-curling 
decibles. I shut it off, stumble back 
into bed and slip back into my 
fantasy. (Mariann Hofer) 

I enjoy' waking up early and 
realizing I can go back to sleep. It 
gives me a satisfied feeling, even if it 
doesn't give me a restful sleep. (Cindy 

Getting ready for school, I hear "As 
Time Goes By" on the radio: "You 
must remember this: A kiss is still a 
kiss. A sigh is just a sigh. The 
fundamental things in life apply as 
time goes by." (Alice Cone) 

And sometimes I listen to the radio 
and pretend the songs are about my 
life. Then I go to the bathroom. 
(Michael Heaton) 

When I am lying in the tub and I 
look at the faucet I see an elephant 
face, with the long green hose as the 
trunk. I think about the elephant for a 
while. It's quiet and all I hear are 
water sounds. Then I brush my teeth 
and use the toilet. I jiggle the handle 
for half an hour and then go into the 
kitchen. (Michael Heaton) 

I love my robe. It's old and raggedy 
and it fits just right. I look in the 
refrigerator and see a jar of 
mayonnaise, a quart of milk, a rotten 
orange and a carton of cigarettes. I 
drink the milk from the carton and 
split. (Michael Heaton) 

"Welcome to the Tree City" — every 
day I read that sign as I come into 

Kent. Perverse, I think about erecting 
my own some dark night — "Welcome 
to the Chuckhole City." And here 
comes the worst one — I'll wager it's 
three feet across and four or five, 
maybe more, inches deep. I drive over 
it, missing it. 

At least once a week, though, I hit it 
and curse the city for the next three 
blocks. What's worse is they just tore 
up and repaved this part of S.R. 59 the 
beginning of fall quarter. And now it's 
shot — chuck holes, ripples, I love 
driving obstacle courses mornings 
when I'm still asleep. (Mariann Hofer) 

I wear brown shoes because I am 
tired of boots. I have worn boots 
every day this year. My feet should 
not get wet if I walk in the street. On 
the porch I am surprised; I had not 
expected more snow. There are three 
steps to the sidewalk, but I see only 
two. Snow meets and covers the 
bottom one. I sink only a fraction of 
an inch because the bottom layers are 
crusty. Everything is white except me 
and the house. We are green. (Alice 


Oh to run in the woods and play in 
the sun once again . . . bleak winter 
days . . . (Judy McClure) 

■There's a veritable heat wave here, 
folks - 30 degrees! I can't believe it. 
Hot dog, adding that to my general 
warm feelings this morning, I can't 
complain. (Mariann Hofer) 

Everything is white and the cold 
makes it all seem clean. I leap through 
a series of snow mounds and land on 
the street. Realizing I'm not at all 
familiar with the bus schedule I start 
walking. Downtown is filled with old 
ladies going to the bakery and 
mothers doing their wash at the 
laundro-mat. I'm sick of looking at the 
snow. (Michael Heaton) 

In the street the snow becomes 
slush and at the intersections the stuff 

is brown and thick and grainy like 
sand. The business building's side 
lawn is covered with the sand that 
greets the sea. It is pure white and 
rippled where the tide has been. On 
the sidewalk I walk through puddles 
and snow that is just snow. 

My feet are cold. Because I cannot 
walk fast and because it is not frigid 
today, I do not run out of breath. In 
class my cardigan is enough to warm 
me. (Alice Cone) 

It's hard to decide what to wear 
these days. Outside it's cold, but 
inside some buildings I could strip to 
my underwear and still be hot. When 
I leave that kind of building I freeze. 
But, on the other hand, when I leave a 
cold building in which I've had to 
wear my coat through the whole class, 
I freeze, too. Perhaps the doctors and 
gas companies have worked out a 
deal. (Cindy Ficke) 

My God, we've got a heat wave, I 
don't believe it's 34 degrees today. 
(Judy McClure) 

While waiting for the bus I am 
showered with slush and salt from 
passing cars. Slush is everywhere. 
Even 4 inches worth on the Campus 
Loop! (Eileen Luhta) 

I cashed a check in Rockwell, went 
around the corner to support my 650 a 
day nicotine "Jones" and got the first 
laugh of the day. "Success Without 
College," the matchbox proclaimed. 
Somebody is trying to tell me 
something. (Jim Crowley) 

On a typical winter day the wind whips the 
snow into stinging wet darts as students hike 
from class to class.

Young people everj^vhere and all 
the buildings look alike. There are 
classrooms and people reading books. 
A lot of people are smiling. Inside the 
buildings puddles are ever\-\vhere. 
Somebody slips and all laugh under 
their breaths. In the cafeteria the 
people are trading glances looking for 
each other. (Michael Heaton) 

In the student union I converse 
quietly, eat greasy eggs and home fries 
and take small gulps of thick brown 
coffee. I go to the bookstore for 

masking tape and a pen and take half 
an hour to look at greeting cards. 

Back at the table my head buzzes 
with nothing and I am unable to 
complete my sentences. Filling out the 
ACPB concert questionaire, I find 
decision making difficult. 

Human creatures swarm to the table 
like bees with their constant hum. I 
listen to their dramas and am loud 
with them. I leave to place blood- 
drive posters in strategic places 
around the building. I feel as if I am 
someone important; people must think 
I am "involved." (Alice Cone) 

A beautiful day ... a 30 degree heat 
wave! (Eileen Luhta) 

On the way to a class I decided to 
cut when I got there. I marveled at 
ladies in skirts and guys with their 
shirts open. Frozen flesh must be 
where it's at. The only way I could i 
punish myself like that would be to 
join the shot and a beer for lunch 
bunch. Qim Crowley) 

After three and a half hours to get 
ready, I still can't make it to class on 
time. I hand in my ACPB survey, 
wrap up in a coat and begin the trek 
to class with a friend. (Alice Cone)

She agrees the wind is fierce, and 
with lowered heads and squinted eyes 
we talk about how hard it is to get 
"into" school this quarter. 

We part and I squeeze between two 
obelisks of snow as tall as I, then 
reach another sidewalk. The wind 
grows cold again and lashes ice at my 
cheeks. (Alice Cone) 

People struggle against the wind, 
which is growing stronger as it comes 
around the corner of the bookstore 
and flashes through the Plaza. They 
step along with the uneasy assurance 
that their next step will land them in 
the first of many pratfalls of the 
season. And they look to the ground 

more — to assure the next step, and to 
keep the wind from reddening their 
cheeks any more. Everyone looks like 
bundles of winter wear, and I've 
walked past people I know without 
recognizing them - I mean, I know 
lots of people with blue eyes. 
(Mariann Hofer) 

Front campus looks like a Robert 
Frost poem, edged in modern suburbia 
— witness the Burger Chef and Gas 
Town. I can't explain the feelings — 
the trees are black and stark, a few 
leaves clinging here and there, the 
snow is criss-crossed with tracks and 
the sky is casting itself in silver-grey, 
sunless and heavy. My boots leave a 

distinct impression in the path. 

Walking by the library, I see a 
friend I haven't talked to for a while. 
We step inside to talk. A lot of people 
pass us, going in to study or research 
papers. This weather is the kind that 
drives some people to hide here and 
do homework that, if it were spring, 
they would let go. (Mariann Hofer) 


As I passed the heating plant it 
sounded as if someone was inside 
winding it up. Perhaps in the future 
KSU will use mechanical energy. 
Today everyone is trading rumors that 
KSU will abolish Friday classes or 
hold classes in the dorms. (Cindy 

A great "whooshing" sound pushes 
up with the smoke from the heating 
tower. It stops suddenly, and the pale 
still afternoon is silent. I think it must 
be the end of the world, but I see a 
few students and they still .walk. 
(Alice Cone) 

Great day! Ah, philosophy! Ah, 
existentialism - ah, the business 

building? Where else, I can hear Olds 
chuckling. Sitting in a huge, drafty 
high-ceilinged room in tiers, taking 
notes faster than Professor Wheeler 
talks. The chairs are incredibilities in 
themselves. They remind me of seats 
on a "Tilt-a-Whirl" at a carnival 
(maybe I'm still there). The whole 
class is spent trying to keep from 
going forward into the table, thereby 
cutting off breathing. A close friend 
once did a five minute monologue on 
them. (Mariann Hofer) 

Two hours it has been and I wonder 
what crazy things 1 have learned in 
here. (Judy McClure) 

Cold and bored, I sit in my physics 

class. Warm and bored, I can handle, 
but when I'm shivering and bored I 
start to bum out. Fantasy time, I drift 
off, still hearing, but not getting into 
the ideas. (Mariann Hofer) 

I fidget and fiddle with my coat, hat 
and mittens wondering if I should put 
them on during class and be warm or 
wait to put them on before I go 
outside. (Cindy Ficke) 

In general I'm growing tired of 
going to school for 15 years. I head 
downtown. (Michael Heaton)

the tables and the jukebox kind of 
lights up the place. I get the mop out 
and start swinging. While I am 
working I wonder what went on here 
last night. Probably nothing, I think 
while finishing up. I'm going home.

After a dinner consumed in great 
haste, I go to a criminal justice course 
I am taking out of curiosity. It's a 
practical course on criminal in-

that we all need to know, how to "lift" 
fingerprints, gather evidence and de-

find wash which needs to be done.

an hour or so. (Michael Heaton) 

The campus is cold, wind-blown 
and dotted with lights. I stand in the

swirls about the lights and I think 


snowstorm, and that I am tired. 

It's too cold to wander much. Every-

drive home, talk to my parents and go 
to bed about 10. (Mariann Hofer)

bloody little groundhog, saw his shad-

Women's Basketball 

On the Way Up 

In vogue with the changing identity 
of women in the 1970's, women's 
basketball is experiencing a slow face 
lift at KSU as well as across the 

KSU women's basketball coach Judy 
Devine said public acceptance for the 
sport has certainly changed. "It is not 
so shameful now for girls to play 
sports in their own back yard," said 
the seven year veteran coach. 

"We are at the ground stage now," 
said Devine. "Attendance is increasing 
and the skill level of the players, as 
compared to players five years ago, is 

"There has been an increase in the 


opportunity to play basketball and 
there are better coaches," Devine said. 
"The players are earning respect." 

Other universities have better 
facilities and offer scholarships. 
Although KSU is not a sports oriented 
school, the over-all athletic program 
has improved in the last three years. 
The team has gotten new uniforms 
and warm-ups, and a new facility is 

The quality of athletes and coaches 
is improving, too. The women are 
playing in Memorial Gym and getting 
more publicity because of Title IX. 
With the added publicity the crowds 
are picking up. 

"It used to be nobody (at KSU) 
looked up to us," said co-captain 
Molly McKeown. "People are looking 
up to us now as our record is 

Two-thirds of the way through the 
season, their record was 7-4. "We have 
come a long ways from winning 5 or 6 

games last year," said assistant coach 
Laurel Wartluft. 

The women work harder because 
there is more prestige today. 
McKeown said the game is a lot 
tougher and much faster. "And there 
are more fastbreaks," said co-captain 
Sue Jacobs. 

Since basketball is being pushed in 
the high schools, more talented 
players are being recruited for college 
teams. "The play is more aggressive 
because the players are beginning to 
condition more," explained second 
year varsity trainer Debbie Cochrane. 

Women's basketball is changing 
since its addition in the Olympics and 
the attempt to start professional 
teams. It is "one of the fastest growing 
sports," said Wartluft. "Society 
doesn't look down on girls in sports 

However, Coach Devine said, "The 
competition will never reach the 
scope of the men's because they are 

physically stronger." 

"My goal as assistant athletic 
director is to get the women's teams at 
KSU extremely competitive in the 
state," she said. 

Exchanging ideas and strategies, women 
basketball players prepare for the next opponent 
at the team meeting (opposite, top left). At 
practice the women scrimmage with men to 
improve the speed and aggression of their game 
(opposite, top right). 

On the sidelines teammates offer suggestions 
and support to the women out on the floor

relaxes for a second. Playing basketball means 
giving up a lot of free time, but it has paid off in 
this year's record (bottom right).

Martin Luther King Memorial 

"In Pursuit of a Dream' 

About 150 people braved the bitter 
cold Jan. 17 to attend "In Pursuit of a 
Dream," the commemoration service 
sponsored by Black United Students 
(BUS) to honor Martin Luther King Jr., 
the slain civil rights leader. 

Melvin North, BUS president, gave 
the opening remarks: "Let us 
remember that Martin Luther King Jr. 
died in pursuit of a dream." He urged 
the audience to work to fulfill King's 
dream "that all men, regardless of 
race, creed or color can and someday 
will live together in harmony." 

The tone North set was carried by 
the music of the Kent Gospel Choir, 
soloist John Madgett and the words of 
guest speakers Evelyn Jackson of the 
Institute for African-American Affairs, 
the Rev. Donald Shilling of United 
Christian Ministries and the Rev. 
Darryl Smaw of the Cleveland 
Antioch Baptist Church. 

Jackson read King's "I Have a 
Dream" speech to the audience and 

commented, "We are gathered today 
to hope and pray that one day Martin 
Luther King's dream will come true." 

A student afterward said she had 
never heard the famous speech, 
delivered on the steps of Lincoln 
Memorial during King's famous 
"freedom march" to Washington, in its 
entirety. She said, "When Martin 
Luther King was around I was young 
and not aware of what real blackness 
was or the plight of our people." 

"In many ways he was the leader of 
us all," Rev. Shilling said, "We 
honored him greatly, we followed 
him, we marched with him and 
prayed for him." 

Shilling hailed King as "the apostle 
of non-violence" and quoted a King 
sermon, "We must combine the 
strength of a serpent with the softness 
of a dove, we must have courage as 
hard as a rock, and hearts as soft." 

Rev. Smaw attacked systematic 
discrimination by local, state and 


federal governments and said black 
people in America must assume the 
leadership role to assist all minorities. 

"Knowledge is the key to freedom," 
Rev. Smaw said, "and to respond to 
the challenge requires a stronger self- 
image, knowledge of yesterday and 
today, knowledge of those whose lives 
were touched by King and a 
recognition of the urgency of the 

Vanessa Henry, KSU student, said, 
"We have a lot to gain attending 
cultural programs like this. I'm hoping 
students at KSU will wake up and 
understand their apathy isn't good for 

"The program's impact sparked my 
memory of what King was struggling 
for," said Steve Jackson, KSU 
sophomore, "It reminded me of him 
and our heritage." 

"Young blacks of today are the 
foundation for taking off and building 
on what King advocated," Jackson 

said, "That was the main purpose of 
this program, to remember King's 

The memorial service was part of a 
two-part program. After the service, 
many of the participants went to the 
Center for Pan-African Culture for a 
spaghetti dinner and a poetry reading 
by Mwatabu Okantah and the Many 
Tongues of Ptah. 

One student commented, "I think 
the second part was as enjoyable as 
the first. It gave us a chance to get 
together and talk about King, have 
dinner and meet with the speakers."

Tenth Annual Folk Festival 

Toting tall tales and tunes, folk mu- 
sicians once again came together at 

The Tenth Annual Folk Festival be- 
gan Feb. 18 at noon with workshops in 
the Student Center. 

Started in 1967 in a local (now 
defunct) coffeehouse by what was 
then the Student Activities Board, the 
festival has since moved on campus. 
Local folks are spotlighted along with 
well-known folk singers. 

Nine acts, sponsored by All Campus 
Programming Board, entertained ca- 
pacity crowds in University Audito- 
rium Friday and Saturday nights. 

Al McKinney, veteran storyteller 
and master of ceremonies, said in esti- 
mation of the number of bodies, "the 
fire marshal is tearin' his hair out over 

People were everywhere. When all 
the seats were taken, choice floor space 
was appropriated. Everyone got 
friendly, shifting positions in unison, 
passing brown-bagged bottles and 
beer cans, telling stories of other festi- 
vals, singing, clapping and often danc- 
ing within two feet of space. 

Performers scurried in and out the 
back stage door. People picked their 
way down aisles shrunk to a foot or 
less in width by the overflowing 


The festival ended around midnight 
Saturday with the Highwoods String- 
band playing "just one more," and Al 
McKinney inviting everyone back for 
the Eleventh Annual Folk Festival. 

Friday night people crowded University Audi- 
torium to hear Chris Rietz, Magpie, John Jackson 
(opposite, bottom middle) and the Hotmud Fam- 
ily (bottom left). 

Saturday night another capacity crowd ap- 
plauded the Hi-Flyers, Robert Junior Lockwood, 
Poor Howard (opposite, bottom right), Nimrod 
Workman (top left), and the Highwoods String- 
band (top right). 

POOR Howard! His performance was inter- 
rupted for 30 minutes by a fire alarm. 

In the Student Center couples promenaded at 
a folk dancing workshop, one of many work- 
shops held both days from 1 to 5 p.m. (opposite,

Dr. Vladimir Simunek 

KSU Controversy 

"The Kent Model is the 
largest forecasting system 
in the world." 

In the Akron Beacon Journal on Oct 
3, 1976 Jean Peters, Beacon Journal 
Education Writer, alleged that "A Bea- 
con Journal investigation has uncov- 
ered: (Business College Dean Gail) 
Mullin and five business college facul- 
ty members founded a private, profit- 
making corporation, Kent Econo- 
metrics Associates Inc. (KEA), to mar- 
ket a computer program developed at 
the university. Virutally all of KEA's 
development costs were paid for by 
the university." 


The computer program, known a as 
the Kent Model," was devised in 1971 
by economics professor Dr. Vladimir 
Simunek. The model uses a series of 
mathematical forumlas to predict 
trends in the U.S. economy. 

On Monday, Oct 4, Simunek refused 
to comment on the specifics of the 
Beacon's allegations, but (according to 
The Daily Kent Stater) said the article 
was "a pack of lies." 

Development of the "Kent Model" 
led to the formation of KEA — with 
Simunek, Mullin and other professors 
as shareholders. 

KEA founders envisioned high 
profits for themselves from sales to 
industry, business and financial in- 
stitutions of predictions made by the 
model, according to the Oct. 3 Beacon 
Journal story. 

KSU was also to share in the profits, 
the story continued, but virtually no 
profits were realized. During its three- 
year existence the corporation cost the 
university more than $100,000, accord- 
ing to the Beacon Journal. 

Lowell Heinke, assistant state at- 
torney general, stated in a letter to 
President Glenn A. Olds, "I have 
found no evidence at all that indicates 
to me there was ever any misuse of 
university funds for the benefits of 
KEA." Olds had sought a legal opinion 
in 1973 when conflict of interest was 
first suggested. 

A major controversy is what re- 
search was done (with the use of uni- 
versity funds and facilities) for the 
benefit of the university and what was 
done for the profit-seeking motives of 

Olds told the Stater in an interview 
Oct. 15 that he felt Simunek's in- 
tention was to use any KEA profits to 
reinforce his research. "He hoped 
Kent State would become ... a major 
place of economic modeling and de- 
veloping," Olds said. 

"For three years, while the system 
was being widely promoted for sale, it 
never really worked," the Beacon 

Journal story alleged. 

Simunek said Oct. 22 the allegation 
that the Kent Model "never really 
worked" is not true. He explained in 
his second of a series of three semi- 
nars (designed to explain the model to 
the university) that an experimental 
part of the model, KEAl, has not al- 
ways worked. 

KEAl, the computer program which 
makes the actual predictions, "some- 
times come out, and sometimes 
doesn't come out," according to Sim- 
unek. But the model has always 
worked. It can predict economic 
trends, he said. 
"The Kent Model is the largest fore- 
Questioned recently about the validity of his 
model, Dr. Vladimir Simunek, economics profes- 
sor, said the model has always worked. It can 
predict economic trends (opposite). 

Questions have also been raised about a pos- 
sible conflict of interest stemming from his 
membership in KEA, the former marketing 
agency for the Kent Model (bottom).

casting system in the world," Simunek 
told the audience of about 40 people, 
including business faculty members, 
research and computer center direc- 

The second annual economic pre- 
dition made by the Kent Model was 
presented in a 31-page report during 
the week of Jan. 2, 1977. The forecast 
called for a "slow, staggering recov- 

Simunek said that the first forecast, 
which was computed in 1976, has 
proved to be "very accurate." He said 
the predictions "prove that the model 
does work." 

"The newspaper allegations have 
damaged the reputation of the model 
and myself and the reputation of the 
university," Simunek said, according 
to an article in the Stater Jan. 5. 

Econometric experts were expected 
to be chosen April 31 to evaluate the 
model. McGraw-Hill Book Co. was in- 
vestigating the model in January. 
McGraw-Hill had the option to buy 
the model. 

The model was being marketed in 
January by the Concept Development 
Institute (CDI) under the direction of 
the KSU Foundation. CDI absorbed a 
$50,000 debt incurred by the Founda- 
tion in the model's development. 

A private corporation which solicits 
funds from the private sector for uni- 
versity programs, the KSU Founda- 
tion, was granted exclusive marketing 
rights to the model by the Board of 
Trustees in March, 1976 when KEA 
was dissolved. 

"The major thing we proved," said 
CDI Chairperson Burton D. Morgan, 
"was that the model works and Sim- 
unek is not a fraud." 

One KSU student wo'ote to the edi- 
tor of the Stater to say that he had 
observed Dr. Simunek working hard 
on the model almost every night. "For 
the benefit of the KSU faculty, stu- 
dents and Dr. Simunek give him a 
chance to perfect it," vwote Kirk 
Wachowicz, Nov. 12, 1976. 


Profs in the Classroom 

Between the time you enter college 
and the time you graduate, unless of 
course you are acutely truant, you will 
run into a person known as the Prof. 
The Prof will invariably have some 
sort of effect on your life. 

It's like playing chess with someone 
you have never seen before. It's 
impossible to know who is going to 
win the game, but usually by the end 
you know your opponent pretty well. 
Four years of "chess" is enough 
experience to give even dullards a 
talent for judging personalities. 

The similarities among members of 

the departments often gives these 
departments images or stereotypes. 
These character sketches are in no 
way intended to portray anyone living 
or dead, rather view them in this light: 
I made them up. 

Type A Type A can be found in 
almost any department. He is what is 
known as a universal prof. He is the 
strict authoritarian gentleman from 
the old school. He is easy to spot 
because he is always wearing a bow 

Most of these types were good 
friends at one time with the school's 
founders. Many a statement made by 
these fellows is followed by phrases 
like "and I've been teaching for 25 
years . . . who's gonna argue with 
that?" No .wonder the guy is nuts. 
They also like to say, "I have tenure, 
you know." 

Type B Type B is the guy I call "the 
groove." The groove is always a young 
person with a Ph.D. in something 
liberal artsy. These types smoke 
English Ovals, smile dramatically at 
the class and arrange seating charts 
with all the women sitting in or near 
the front row. When the groove 
speaks, all who are enlightened will 
bask in the warmth of his knowledge. 
But then again there is always that 
student in the back drooling on his 
desk top. This flagrant display of 
indifference looms large in the fears 
of the groove. His response is usually 
a quote from Bartlett's or People 
magazine. He is under the illusion of 
teaching a class. 

Type C With maybe a rare exception 
here and there, Poindexter is always 
found in some kind of science 
department. His glasses are thick, 
people are constantly asking him if he 
just got up and he can't figure out why 
The Ed Sullivan Show isn't on 
anymore. After all, everyone watched 
it. The most interesting thing about 

Poindexter is the comical inrony 
which pervades his existence. 

On the one hand he understands on 
a very profound level the 
innerworkings of thermo-nuclear 
physics and yet he could not raise the 
shade or focus the overhead projector 
to save his life. He scratches his head 
and says "hmmm" a lot. 

Type D The "noveau prof" dresses 
down. He can usually be found in an 
art or music department. Some would 
call him a slob. But at least he is a 
sincere slob. The noveau prof has put 
a lot of thought into those raggedy 
garments. This guy is years ahead of 
tenure paranoia. 

He always sits on the desk rather 
than behind it. It is more than likely 
that he voted for Hunter Thompson in 
the last election and has been known 
to begin classes with the statement, 
"What day is this?" 

Type E If you do not know what a J- 
teacher is, go to Taylor Hall. Wrinkled 
clothes are a sure sign. Something 
about their job wrinkles the cloth. 
Nicotine stains extend from the finger 
tips to about the elbow and he ingests 
coffee at an incredible rate, volume 
and speed. Checking those skinny ties 
will tell you what happens to old 
typewriter ribbons. 

Smoking, swearing or spitting in 
class by this prof indicates he is 
normal, natural and at home in his 
job. Most aspire to the professional 
accomplishments of William F. 
Buckley. But all would jump at the 
chance for a job at Hustler. 

Type F The bore is by far the most 
dreaded of all these types. Some exist 
in every department. He is the guy 
whose lectures are dryer than the 
Sahara. He revels in his own 
monotone and knows how to use it to 
keep the class from passing an 
otherwise cake course. 

For example, the master of the 


mundane will drone on for a good 45 
minutes covering the most obscure 
insignificant aspects of the material 
and after he has lulled the masses into 
a comatose stupor he will whip off the 
seven key points essential to passing 
the final. 

Another technique used by the bore 
is turning the furnace up to 80 degrees 
and scheduling his classes so that they 
are almost always after lunch. 

Mumbling is common among bores. 
The ends of all his sentences 
somehow manage to drift into outer 
space, or come out in Chinese, e.g. 
"Now I think it especially important 
for you to note, especially at this time 
that in chapter seven we have a 
forlasnza grunt portablashnopps. 
Furthermore ..." And so it goes. 

Now that I've taken so much space 
writing about lousy profs 1 feel it only 
fair that I give some ink to the people 
who do a good job. These are the 
profs who 1. know the material 2. are 
enthusiastic about presenting it and 3. 
have a sense of humor. 

This is the prof that no matter how 
many people are in the class, at the 
end of the quarter you feel like you 
know him personally. 

These are the profs who inject a 
little of their own personality into 
their work. They don't hide behind 
the sterile image of University 
Representative. Their classes are 
enjoyable, educational positive 

One sign of a good prof is a class 
where you get to know the other 
people in the class. A good prof 
always brings the class together on a 
personal level. 

These people are the ones who 
make education worthwhile. They 
will be the ones remembered in years 
to come, and rightly so. It is these 
people who have to put up with as 
much baloney or more than we do 
and still come out smiling. I hope they 
realize it's much appreciated.

Dr. Richard S. Varga 


Math and its use with 

In a Merrill Hall office lined with 
shelves full of correspondence papers, 
books, computer read-outs and several 
pictures and pieces of art work done 
by his daughter, Dr. Richard S. Varga, 
KSU mathematics professor, talked 
about the areas of research he works 
in. All four areas have as their base 

Researching energy problems using math and 
computers, Dr. Richard Varga is currently look- 
ing for more efficient methods to get oil from the

math professor, outlines the four areas of re- 
search he is investigating (opposite, top left). 

Often his research is completed at home (op-

how math is used with computers, Dr. 
Varga said. 

He explained the four areas of re- 
search as: linear algebra, iterative 
methods, which deals with solutions 
of large systems of equations (iterative 
is defined as repeating), applications 
to petroleum problems and appli- 
cations to nuclear reactors. He has 
two grants, one from the Air Force to 
research "Use of Varational and Pro- 
jectional Methods in Numerical Anal- 
ysis," and another from the Energy 
Research and Development Associ- 
ation (ERDA) for research in "Numer- 
ical Method for Problems on Environ- 
mental Effects on Aerospace Ve- 

Dr. Varga received his Ph.D. from 
Harvard and worked for West- 
inghouse in Pittsburgh, Pa. for six 
years until 1960. While at West- 
inghouse he worked on the design of 
nuclear reactors. He has been a con- 
sultant to Gulf Oil in Pittsburgh for 15 
years, and was involved in the math 
model for the Nautilus nuclear subma- 
rine series. The model he worked on 
was put into use on the second sub- 
marine in the Nautilus series. 

"In math research, it's possible to 

travel a great deal," Dr. Varga said. He 
had just returned from guest lecturing 
at Yale. In December 1976 he attended 
an International Congress of Math- 
ematics in Tampa, Fla. Smiling, he

Dr. Varga has also travelled to Si- 
beria. He has a friend. Academician 
Guri Marchuk, who lives in Academia 
City, which is near Novosibirsk. Novo- 
sibirsk, he said, is exactly half way 
around the world, and takes 12 hours 
to reach. Marchuk has also been to 
KSU recently. Dr. Varga said he plans 
to go back to Siberia to visit him soon. 

KSU students are actively involved 
with Dr. Varga and his research. Cur- 
rently, he has two students working 
for him; Arden Ruttan, a senior, and 
Lala Krishna, who is originally from 
India. All together he has had 16 Ph.D. 
students working with him at one time 
or another. 

KSU benefits from these research 
grants because with the $16,000 grant 
from the Air Force, and the $45,000 
grant from ERDA, contracts for work 
come in and provide money for speak- 
ers and visitors to the university. This 
is how Academician Marchuk was

Dr. Varga explained how his work 
in the petroleum field would benefit 
the world. At the moment he is work- 
ing on more efficient methods to get 
oil from the ground. He is working on 
a comubstion theory and third level 
method. The third level method is put 

into use when there is 30% or less of 
an oil reservoir left below the ground. 
It usually wasn't used when oil was $2 
a barrel, due to cost feasability, but 
with the price rising to $12 to $14 a 
barrel, it is being considered more of- 

It consists of injecting chemicals 
into the reservoir to reduce surface 
tension, and thereby enable the oil to 
be drawn up. The economics of using 
this action on a well can be worked 
out on a computer, which is the center 
of Dr. Varga's interest. He and a for- 
mer Phd student are working on this 
in conjunction with the 13 major oil 
companies, who are contributing mon- 
ey and information. 

Along with his research he is in- 
volved with a seminar and class at 
KSU for which he wrote the text. In 
his spare moments, to take a break 
from math and computers, he indulges 
himself in his hobbies, photography 
and working on his car.

The State of Ohio has redesigned 
the teacher education program so that 
education students will have a 
minimum contact of 300 hours with 
school age children before they start 
student teaching. Under the current 
program many education students 
have no experience with children 
until they begin their student teaching. 

Like most major program changes 
this renovation will cost more money. 
Just how much is the subject of 
Assistant Professor Bill Patton's 

Patton submitted a proposal to the 
state to look at the cost of training 
teachers under the new plan. The 
official title of his research is "Cost 
Benefit Analysis Study of the Redesign 
of Teacher Education." The State of 
Ohio granted him $9,000 for this 

Patton says the new plan will 
require the extra costs of professors 
and transportation of education 
students to schools. 

"The project is designed to compare 
the current method of teacher- 
education with the proposed method 
and translate it into a cost per student 
— the cost to train a single student in 
elementary education over four 
years." said Patton. "We compare 

these two figures and come up with a 
cost benefit ratio." 

Patton does all of his research by 
computer, feeding data in and going 
over reams of computer print-out 
sheets in his office. He has no student 
assistants on his six month project. 
"It's exclusively the fruits of my 
labors." said Patton. 

Part of Patton's research grant will 
pay for the design of a new computer 
program for the College of Education 
which will be used as the base for the 
college's budget. "The dean of the 
college will be able to more 
accurately figure costs with the new 
program." said Patton. 

When Patton finishes his research in 
June he hopes his findings will 
"identify the critical aspects of 
teacher training from the financial 
point of view." He added that there 
has been a limited amount of research 
in this area. 

His project proposal was one of 36 
proposals to receive funding from the 
$1 million allocated for educational 
research. This money was available to 
all of the 51 educational institutions in 
Ohio, of which Kent is the second 

Patton has spent most of his life in 
the state of Washington and attended 

the University of Washington as both 
an undergraduate and a graduate 
student. He received his doctorate in 
elementary education from the 
University in 1973, then came to KSU 
as an assistant professor. 

He said his duties are currently 50% 
administrative. He is the Co-ordinator 
of Project and Proposal Development 
for Elementary Education. "In other 
words, I get money for the college," he 
said. Patton also teaches "Evaluation 
in the Elementary School", an 
elementary education course.

The Sharing Problem, a 
real-life "story problem" 

Science is exploration and in- 
vestigation: Randy Browm is a scien- 
tist. The associate professor in KSU's 
School of Business spends about 30 
hours a week searching for. devel- 
oping and refining solutions to real- 
life "ston,- problems." His tools are 
computers, formulas and models. 

A former student, who was working 
for the U.S. Department of Housing 
and Urban Development (HUD), ques- 
tioned Brown as to how the govern- 
ment could distribute coal fairly 
among utilit\- companies in the case of 
a prolonged coal strike. Bro\N-n an- 
5%vejed by helping him de\ise a com- 
puter model called the Sharing Prob- 

The model can cover a number of 
situations invohing the di\ision of re- 
sources. From it Bro^%-n developed an 
algorithm, a rule for sol\-ing a certain 
tv-pe of problem. If Brown knew how 
much coal each utility- company used 
and what shipping means were avail- 
able, he could run the information

through a computer and discover how 
the coal would best be distributed and 
how it should be transported. 

HUD did not need to use the al- 
gorithm, but in 1975 the cit\- of Akron 
asked Brown for help in budgeting its 
Department of Parks and Recreation. 
A model was being used, but it was 
not correct. 

"Amazingly," said Brown, "the right 
one turned out to be the Sharing Prob- 
lem. I changed a program and ran it 
and it worked. " 

Taking into account what jobs are 
necessary to park maintenance and 
the price of equipment and workers. 
Brown used the model to determine 
the cost of maintaining one park for a 
year. On the basis of that information, 
Akron Citj- Council voted not to build 
a new park in 1975. 

Brown continued to refine the al- 
gorithm, and in early 1976 he helped 
implement a work schedule in one of 
Akron's three park districts. The 
schedule included a record of what 
equipment and workers were avail- 
able and what work was accom- 


Then Akron's technology agent sent 
a proposal to HUD for an Innovative 
Projects Grant. Out of an initial 175 
applicants and 250 letters of intent, 
only 11 projects were funded, 

'The Sharing Problem was one of 
them," said Brown, "and we got every 
penny (requested). " 

HUD has granted Akron S103.000 for 
the project. The system is now in op- 
eration in Akron's other two park dis- 
tricts and is underway in Little Rock, 
Arkansas. Plans are to start the pro- 
gram in San Diego in June and in one 
other city before the grant expires in 

Brown, who "worked for free until 
August, " and his former research as- 
sistant Bob Obee were subcontracted 
under the grant at 538,000 plus trav- 
elling expenses. Brown is principle in- 
vestigator and consultant for the pro- 
ject. Obee. a full-time doctoral student 
in the School of Business, is the full- 
time project analyst. 

For Brown and Obee, the exciting 
part of research is the discoverv- that 
their theories work in the real world. 

Manuals about the test sites and the 
publication of Brown's paper on the 
Sharing Problem in Operations Re- 
search should help assure the model's 
recognition within that world. The 
journal is "one of the top two. " in 
appUed mathematics, according to 

Both men expressed hope that the 
Sharing Problem will help upgrade 
the business school's reputation. 
Brown, who received a B.S. in elec- 
trical engineering, a master's degree in 
management and a PhJD. in operations 
research from the Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technologv'. has been at 
KSU eight years. Obee completed his 
bachelor's and master's degrees here 
with an accumulative 4.00 grade aver- 

Neither of them stoppped exploring 
after the application of the Sharing 
Problem. The science of applied math- 
ematics is a science that finds solu- 
tions to some problems, then begins 
the search for answers to others. 
Brown and Obee are also involved in 
research to efficiently place salesmen 
in underdeveloned countries.

Videotaping Testimony for 
use in Courtrooms 

Videotaping witness' testimony is a courtroom 
technique unique to Ohio (opposite, bottom 
right). Dr. Carl M. Moore (left), associate 
professor of speech, is investigating the use of 
videotaped testimony to reduce trial delay. 

Dr. Moore explains that videotape can make 
good use of a witness' time and the tape can be 
edited to delete any objectional testimony which 
may sway a jury (opposite, top left).

A research project, using videotape 
in the courtroom to reduce trial 
delays, is being studied by Dr. Carl M. 
Moore, associate Professor in the 
School of Speech at KSU. 

Dr. Moore has been awarded a grant 
of $50,154 by the Administration of 
Justice Division of the Ohio 
Department of Economic and 
Community Development. 

The purpose of the project, 
according to Dr. Moore, is to 
determine whether videotape 
technology can be utilized to help 
Ohio courts reduce trial delay. 

"Ohio is the first state to use 
videotape to record testimony," Dr. 
Moore said. He added that other states 
don't use this system because "the 
legal community is conservative and 
resistant to change." 

Dr. Moore, who specializes in 
speech argumentation at KSU, is also 
Research Associate of the Center for 
Urban Regionalism and 
Environmental Systems. 

He said the goals of his research are 
to train judicial personnel on the use 
of videotape equipment, examine the 
different ways used to get testimony, 
recommend court rules on recording 
procedures and to certify standards 

for videotape equipment operators. 

Moore said the videotape can make 
good use of a witness' time, situate 
him in a relaxed atmosphere and 
delete unnecessary testimony that 
might sway a jury. 

Assisting Dr. Moore in reaching 
these goals are three KSU students. 
The program coordinator, Bruce 
Landis, is a doctoral candidate in 
speech. The research assistants are 
Allen Bukoff, doctoral candidate in 

psychology and Richard Klein, 
doctoral candidate in educational 

Dr. Moore said a task force, serving 
in an advisory capacity, will also be 
included in the research. 

Serving on the task force is Clyde 
Hendrick, professor of psychology at 
KSU, an appeals judge and a 
practicing attorney. 

Moore said his research will 
"service society at large." 

He added, "The project will affect 
KSU by bringing money in for KSU 
and by training graduate assistants in 
this new era." 

Moore said, "This research 
addresses more real problems than 
just studies and applies the research." 

"The result of videotape use in Ohio 
will determine its use in the legal 
systems throughout the country," 
Moore added. 


Professing the Future 

"What will be the new 
primary energy form?" 

Dr. Benjamin A. Foote 



I would say that in the near future, 
about 10 years, we will probably be 
using solar power. After that in about 
20 years I think we will be reaching 
the availability of fusion. 

Fusion is a controlled hydrogen 
bomb. However, we do not have the 
technological capacity to use it yet. 
Scientists are predicting its 
availability in 20 to 30 years. 

Immediately we are stuck with the 
fossil fuels and with fission, nuclear 
power. Ultimately I think we will turn 
to fusion because it is an unlimited 
source of non-polluting energy. 

Photography. |oe Slenger 

Dr. Raymond R. Myers 
Chairman. Professor 

Fossil fuels will continue to be the 
dominant energy form until the end of 
this century. They will be rationed in 
order to achieve equitable distribution 
and to assure that supplies will last 
until alternate sources can be 
developed. Meanwhile the increased 
use of solar energy will progress from 
direct heating to indirect forms such 
as wind power and photosynthesis. 

It is only a matter of time until the 
acreage needed for solar farms will 
also become a limiting factor. Satellite 
solar installations will alleviate some 
of the pressure on real estate, but their 
use will be limited by their cost. 

In short, there is no way of escaping 
mandated conservation measures. 
Only when energy needs can be met 
by solar energy will there be a stable 
condition. Nuclear energy provides 
only a stopgap solution, but one 
which will impinge on the lives of all 
of us for the remainder of this 

Photography. Chuck Humel 

Glenn W. Frank 



Renewable energy resources such as 
solar, wind, tidal and water power 
may be important locally, but they 
will not supplant the continued use of 
the nonrenewable fuels. The 
psychological and technological 
problems with nuclear fuel will 
relegate it to minimal use. 

We will continue to find new 
petroleum and gas reserves in the 
world; however, the easily recoverable 
deposits have been found, and new 
supplies will be more costly to extract 
and deliver. Coal burned directly or 
through its conversion to gas will 
become the major source of energy in 
the next thirty years. Although 
technology will improve efficiency in 
the conversion of all fuels to energy as 
well as in the transmission and use of 
energy, the abundant, non-polluting, 
inexpensive energy resources are a 
thing of the past. 

Difficult choices and compromise 
will be required to balance the 
important questions of environment 
and personal energy demands. Even 
the most dogmatic environmentalist 
expects the light to go on when the 
switch is turned.

"How will the Bicentennial 
be remembered?" 

Dr. James W. Dickoff 
Chairman, Professor 

How the Bicentennial will be 
remembered is determined by what 
the future brings. Who would have 
thought that the bright promise of the 
sixties would be remembered with 
such sorrow. 

The Centennial occurred in the 
Gilded age in 1987. The Bicentennial 
came swift upon the heels of 
Watergate. It seems we have passed 
from a Gilded age to a crass age. 

What struck me about the 
Bicentennial was its low key. 

What we would have hoped would 
be a glorious reaffirmation has simply 
become, in the way it was handled, an 
occasion for small town patriotism. 

Photography. Bob Huddleston 

Dr. Richard W. Taylor 
Chairperson, Professor 
Political Science 

The Bicentennial will be 
remembered as well as the Centennial 
of 1876 was. One good reason is that 
Republics are not hospitable to 
celebrations of this form; another is 
that the American public is fed up 
with the pious political shows, as they 
have been disenchanted with the 
behavior of the politicians. Elected 
officials and political parties might 
well take the voter turn-out in 1976 to 

Photography. Chuck Humel 

Dr. Jerry M. Lewis 
Associate Professor 

Most Americans took part in the 
Bicentennial in their local 
neighborhoods and towns. Parades, 
festivals and ceremonies created a 
sense of community that surprised 
many people. 

I believe that this feeling of warmth 
for one's neighborhoods and friends 
will be remembered long after the 
particular events of the Bicentennial 
are forgotten.

Our urban centers will obviously 
survive and, though 1 may be naive, I 
think that many of them will prosper. 
"Sunbelt" cities, such as those in the 
southwest, will of course have the 
fewest difficulties. 

But even the financially and socially 
troubled, aging urban centers of the 
middle West and Northeast are 
beginning to grapple with their 
problems, even if in a painfully slow 

Most of them are finally waking up 
to financial realities; they are 
attempting to stabilize neighborhoods, 
which have usually been of great 
importance in making urban life 
civilized; and they are trying, with 
varying degrees of success, to keep the 
middle class in the cities and to entice 
back those who have left. 

Although enormous problems 
remain, we must not forget that most 
cities are "exciting" places to live, in 
the best sense of the term.

Overall, I am pessimistic about the 
direction in which I see our urban 
centers moving. For at least the 
immediate future, the watchwords of 
urban America are going to be fiscal 
conservatism, no growth and limited 
social policy innovation. The 
relevance of the watchwords for any 
given urban center will depend upon 
its age, geographic location and 
economic health. Life in the younger, 
economically expanding cities of the 
South and West will be better than 
life in the older, economically 
declining cities of the Northeast and 

The fate of the cities is dependent 
upon sets of forces that are, for all 
practical purposes, beyond the control 
of urban public officials; such things 
as energy availability, the state of the 
national economy and decisions made 
in the private sector. 

If these new problems become the 
major concerns of the cities, certain 
segments of the society — the poor, 
the old, the have-nots — will 
disproportionately bear the costs. For 
this reason, I am pessimistic. 
Hopefully I am wrong in my

Artists are doing what artists 
shouldn't be doing. They are selling 
out for economic reasons. They are 
allowing themselves to be exploited. 
Art is being sold and promoted like 
pop records. 

Artists in New York, in the lofts, are 
intimidated by the rising cost of exis- 
tence in New York. 

In every area of art there are bad 
points which often reflect onto the 
good areas. Films and painting are 
being exploited. 

Galleries and museums are suffering 
— support, public and private, is lack- 
ing. Even the larger galleries and mu- 
seums, which have grants and endow- 
ments, are in economic danger. 

Art does have a future, even though 
the promoters are taking money any 
way they can, artists are creating 
"sellable" products, and films and the- 
ater are being exploited. Dance, espe- 
cially, is getting better than ever. 

What the future is, is hard to say, 
because the artist creates the art, the

Art in the 70s seems to be of many 
kinds and is available to everyone. 

In the 60s it was shifting from the 
professional world to the university. 

Now it seems art centers, univer- 
sities, old theaters, anything that will 
hold an audience, there you find per- 

For instance, in Playhouse Square 
we have a surprise — free theater. 
Actors are being paid from the con- 
cessions and theater is available to 
anyone in Cleveland. 

James Levine, who was formerly in 
an academic position in Cleveland, is 
now the director of the Metropolitan 

In the future it's possible that there 
will be a synthesis of the many styles 
today that range from pop to art mu- 
sic, a synthesis that will be considered 
THE music of the 21st century. This 
synthesis will be one style not the 
tremendous number of musics we 
have today.

Spring Quarter: Softball 

Thousands of KSU students, faculty, 
graduate students and staff participate 
in intramurals (IM), the largest student 
activity at KSU. 

Last Spring 2,628 people partici- 
pated regularly in intramural softball. 
Many more substituted, refereed and 
kept score. 

One of the most popular intramural 
sports is basketball. "We always have 
more sign-ups than we can handle," 
said Dave Straub, IM director. 
Twenty-six leagues, with five teams 
competing in each, filled Memorial 
and University School gyms on Sun- 
day, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 
nights winter quarter. 

Participation is free, except in bowl- 
ing and hockey because the lanes and 
ice must be rented. 

Student government allocates mon- 
ey to intramurals which is used to pay 
and train referees, buy equipment and 
pay the staff. 

Intramurals is a division of the 
School of Health, Physical Education 
and Recreation. It has been a part of 
KSU for about 30 years.

Men's Baseball 

Even though Bob Utter broke the 
KSU record for most hits in a season 
(46) previously held by Thurman 
Munson and Jock Holl (39), the 
baseball team wras 9th in the MAC. 
They couldn't come up with 
controlled pitching or clutch hitting.

Women's Softball 

The women's softball team had the 
best record of any team on campus 
spring quarter. "I couldn't be more 
pleased," said coach Corky Semler. He 
praised the women's playing and 
attitudes. 'Our season went well," he

Women's Track 

The women were third in the state 
for the second year in a row. Maureen 
Masin was first in the high jump, 
clearing 5'5". During the season the 
880 yard relay team, Lisa Stewart and 
Julie Baron set new KSU records. 

Photography. Joe Sten^er 

Men's Track 

The men's track team, strong in 
weights and distances, was fourth in 
the Central Collegiate Championships. 
Mark Siegel, Bob Francis and Steve 
Harden qualified for the NCAA 
championships. Siegel set a KSU shot 
put record during his season.

Men's Golf 

Paced by senior Art Nash and captain 
Mike Long, the KSU golf team finished 
seventh in the Mid-American 
Conference (MAC), 38 strokes behind 
champion Northern Illinois. Nash 
bettered Long by 4 strokes, 301 to 305. 
Coach Frank Truitt felt rest, time and 
ideal weather were needed for the 
Flashes to capture the MAC title. 
Miami and Bowling Green were the 
Flashes main obstacles. 

Photography Joe Stenger 

Women's Volleyball 

Consistency was lacking in the 
women's volleyball team this year, 
according to coach Marilyn Stevens. 
The Flashes (5-16) shuffled line-ups to 
try to find a winning combination, but 
could not develop a steady attack. The 
team had to go through losses to build 
a competetive team for next season, 
said coach Stevens.

Men's Football 

Four KSU players were chosen all- 
MAC (Mid-American Conference) — 
wide receiver Kim Featsent, place 
kicker Paul Marchese, defensive tackle 
Glenn Deadmond and linebacker Jack 
Lazor. The Flashes finished second in 
the MAC and for the fourth time in 
KSU history, a running back, Art Best, 
rushed for more than 1,000 yards.

Women's Field Hockey 

Coached by Judy Devine the 
women's field hockey team finished 
the season with a winning record. At 
the state tournament the women lost 
the consolation round in overtime to 
Youngstown State. Coach Devine 
believes field hockey is in the building 
stages at KSU. The women have 
played well, she said.

Men's Tennis 

Tied with Northern Illinois, KSU 
placed seventh in the MAC (Mid- 
American Conference) in tennis. 
Coach Blan Fuller said everyone 
saved their best efforts for the 
tournament. Everyone who scored 
upset someone, he said. Gary Scher 
scored 1 point; Rex Hunt scored 2. 
The team ended the year with a 6-18 
record. Hampered by the loss of the 
number one and number five seeded 
players, the Flashes were picked to 
finish last in the MAC. Everyone on 
the young squad will return next year.

Women's Basketball 

A more aggressive women's 
basketball team finished the season 
with an 8-7 record. In the state 
tournament they beat Youngstown 
State before losing to Cincinnati. 
Senior Barb Easlick had 15 points in 
both games. Kathy Tedrick had a total 
of 22 points from both games. Sue 
Jacobs scored 16 points against 
Cincinnati. Their goal was to be 
competetive, said coach Judy Devine. 
They proved it at the state tourney, 
she said.

Men's Basketball 

Rex Hughes' third year coaching 
KSU basketball won't be his last. The 
Flashes ended up in the league cellar 
with Eastern Michigan. Their record, 
7-19. "I apologize to the fans for not 
having done" something about this 
program, he said. He said he has to 
convince kids in the area that this is 
the place to come. We need good, 
solid freshmen players, he said. Soph- 
omore Burrell McGhee broke a KSU 
single-season scoring record with 32 
points in the season finale. Corteze 
Brown and James Collins scored 10 
and 16 points in their final game.

Coached by Scott Bittinger, the 
women's tennis team finished eighth 
in the state at Miami University. Every 
player scored at the meet. The

and Andi Temple added points in

Barb Long and Nancy Battista added 
nine more points.

Men's Soccer 


The soccer team had a record 
breaking season, even though they lost 
five games by only one goal. Records 
for the most team shots in a game and 
most points were broken this season. 
Scott Miller tied the record for most 
goals (18), and Zek Haile broke the 
record for most assists (8).

Women's Swimming 

The women's swimming team is 
only one year away from winning it 
all, said coach Tod Boyle. Eight 
swimmers and two divers competed in 
the state meet to place KSU fifth out 
of twelve teams. With good recruiting 
and hard work the KSU women could 
be on top next year, said Boyle.

Men's Swimming 

A completely balanced KSU men's 
swim team captured its fourth MAC 
(Mid-American Conference) title in 
five years. Seventeen of the 24 
swimmers at the state meet scored. 

The 800-yard freestyle relay team 
set a MAC record. Chris Atwater also 
set a MAC record and qualified for 
NCAA finals.

Men's Cross Country 

Overall, the cross country team had 
one of its poorer showings this season. 
KSU was eighth in the MAC (Mid- 
American Conference) and tenth in 
the all Ohio and Central Collegiate 
meets. Junior Neil McConnell was the 
most consistent runner, said coach 
Doug Raymond.
