Eckerd as a History Maker
Above, Matt Brown finishes his morning coffee

of the mainstays of life. Right. A well built friend-

Here we are friends, celebrating the
twenty-fifth anniversary of a small, inti-
mate college. A place that is more than a
school, and much more than just a learning
institution; a place so many of us are proud
to call home. Like all new-borns. Eckerd
College had its trials and tribulations while
learning how to grow. Students today, simi-
lar to those twenty-five years ago, share in
some of the same dilemmas and good times.
There is, for example, the first formal
dance at St. Petersburg's Soreno Hotel on
December 14, 1960. Over one-hundred stu-
dents and faculty members danced to the
music of Tony Esposito and orchestra. Or
... do you remember the first time you did
your wash? All there was to it was finding
the correct change, shoving all the clothes
in, emptying the soap box and turning it on.
What a way to learn . . . Here is a clip of an
article that was run in the December 1960
issue of Trident (now referred to as the
"If you want to clean a pair of tennis
shoes, don't put six sheets, two sweat-
shirts, and half dozen shirts in the
washer with them. Believe it or not,
washers have a maximum load capac-
ity. When things start bulging out the
top even after you've crammed them
down and put bricks on the top to
keep them in — its safe to judge that
the washer is a wee mite too full. On
the other hand it does not take 120
minutes worth of hot air to dry a load
of two shoes and two laces."
Does this sound familiar? Why doesn't
college come with an instruction sheet?
Then there's the major dilemma of "what
will we eat?" obviously not food, or is it?
Even today. Saga's meals don't compare to
mom's homemade meals, but they have im-
proved over the years.

As a college, our campus and
community has grown extremely fast. In
1960 there were five clubs and
organizations one could participate in.
These included Chemistry, Dramatics,
French, German, and Spanish. Today a
student has over sixty-four clubs to choose
from: beginning with ECOS
administration all the way to tour guides.
I'm sure everyone attending school in
Florida can relate to the Saturdays on the
beach. In 1961, students" beach days
consisted of box lunches, surf boards,
swimming, 150 hot dogs, and 5c cokes.
Now, a few years later, students find
themselves at the beach's "hot spot"
watching activities such as jet-ski racing
We must also remember the serious
aspects of Eckerd College life. In
September, 1958, our first president.
President William Kadel, took office and
the decision was made that St. Petersburg
would be the site for the new college. In
the beginning of 1960, Florida
Presbyterian College began its academic
year with 151 freshmen at an interim on
Bayboro Harbour in St. Petersburg.
Accompanying the first few years of
Florida Presbyterian College were the
ever popular problems of every college:
apathy and rules. Apathy proved to get
the best of the students. There was no
sight of recovery until the students
became involved — such as a yearbook
committee (which was formed in 1965).
The Trident sent out pleas for writers and
people to become involved with their
social life. This hardly presents a problem
for some of us today!
Pets on campus? At Florida
Presbyterian College it was absolutely
unthinkable to allow pets on campus. The
Trident felt the same about the situation
when they stated that they didn't want
the reputation of being, "a flea bitten
As FPC moved into its third year, it
began to deal with major social problems,
such as integration. In May of 1962, a
black student, Howard Kennedy, was
admitted to FPC as a junior transfer
student. Howard had the proper
credentials and filled all the requirements
necessary to become a student. As soon as
the Board of Trustees heard that a black
student was admitted to our "lily-white
school" they overturned the Admission's
decision. In disgust and disbelief, a major
portion of our, "fine, dedicated staff'
handed in their resignation. The
resignation letters were put in a drawer
over the summer while the Board of
Trustees reconsidered their dccision^• The
next fall semester, black students were
admitted as FPC students. Unfortunately,
Howard Kennedy had found another
Apathy, apathy . . . Yes, apathy was
still evident at FPC. Due to the lack of
social events, a new gameroom was
opened on campus consisting of cards,
board games, etc. ... To add icing to the
cake, confusion still existed about the
voting policies of Student Government.
Five years after the birth of FPC, the
Student Government began reconsidering
the dorms and the rules that govern them.
"As the rules stood, visitors of the
opposite sex could only visit in the lounge
areas." Rules were passed in 1966 that
allowed open houses on Sundays, provided
notice was given to the campus
community by the dorms wishing to have
open dorms. Curfew hours were also
extended for senior females. They could
remain out until 12:00 on week days, one
AM on Fridays, and two AM Saturdays,
thanks to President Kadel.
During the next few years President
Kadel and the students of FPC engaged
in a "serious run-a-round." The students
were displeased with Kadel's attitude,
especially when he felt that it was
necessary to, apologize for their long hair
while speaking off campus. And he stated
his disbelief and unwillingness to accept
the fact that FPC had been charged with
housing drugs during the "Great Drug
Bust." President Kadel resigned soon
after to accept an administrative position
with the Board of Christian Education of
the Presbyterian Church.
The next person to fill the position of
president was Billy O. Wireman. during
his years at FPC he advanced from
athletic Director and basketball coach, to
Dean of Men, Vice-President of
Development. As he took the final step to
Presidency, he took with him the respect
and personal friendship of many students.
One of Wireman's most memorable
decisions was to improve on dorms and
the dorm life. Women over 21 had no
designated dorm hours, she only needed
to fill out an off campus pass. Freshmen
girls were the only students to have
"strict" restrictions. Open dorms and co-
ed dorms, a dream of the students, soon
became a reality thanks to Wireman.

The Eckerd College 25th annual Convocation took place on
Wednesday September 12th, 1984. This was a special occasion
in a series honoring our first 25 years in existence. The Convoca-
tion ceremony was held in Griffin Chapel. The opening prayer
was delivered by Dean Chapin prior to which two tardy faculty
members slipped into their places while adjusting their caps and
robes. Dr. Peter Armacost then proceeded to greet the college
and community. The overall turn out of students was quite
impressive. President Armacost wanted to thank all who had
been involved in the past 25 years of our charter. Then he
introduced distinguished guests, faculty, and past students.
There were two alumni of the first graduating class in atten-
dance, Howard Carter and Carolyn (Hall) Horton. Mrs. Hor
ton said she had seen many changes since she studied here. She
also said that the core curriculum she was in 25 years ago was
similar to the program used at Eck Tech today. President Arma-
cost also read a message from our distinguished board member
Jack Eckerd which sited Eckerd College as a fine institution and
expressed thanks to all who had been involved in it's history.
Uncle Peter then introduced the first and second presidents of
Eckerd College, Dr. William Kadel and Dr. Billy Wireman.
Seldom does a college president have the opportunity to intro-
duce all of his predecessors. Dr. Kadel, a spry looking grey
haired gentleman, said he was glad to be here. Also, he was
happy to see Eckerd was still seeking to present a challenge to
anyone willing to listen. He said he was glad to see there were

still cocky people here. Dr. Kadel told a couple of amusing
stories. One being about the time he and another college official
went to ask President Dwight D. Eisenhower to be our first
honorary alumnus. They were scheduled to spend only ten min-
utes with the president. Everything was worked out to the sec-
ond. Yet, after he was asked to accept the degree, Ike proceeded
to ask them, two men who had just started a college and really
were not experienced, about private education in America. They
spent thirty minutes in the Oval Office.
Dr. Kadel told the community about the first official event at
Florida Presbyterian College, a prayer was said in an empty
store front in Orlando. The prayer asked for guidance in begin-
ning a college. In closing. Dr. Kadel, speaking of today's Eckerd
College, stated one parting remark, "Well, I'll be damned!"
President Armacost introduced the second President, Billy
Wireman Dr. Wireman said that the concern for money at
Eckerd was not new. He also told why he was attracted to the
school. He was only 27 years old when he first appj^ached Dr.
Kadel. He spoke of Eckerd as a dream that our fo^n(^j$ ^d
envisioned. Dr. Wireman then proceeded to rememblr|i^6^i
John Kennedy's election, and Camelot, also, the impact of ;tj(^
invasion of Israel on the college. He went on to discuss the v^i
that we should never loose sight of our goals, and to keep the
dream alive. These were the dreams of Eckerd during his ad-
ministration. Also, mentioned was the prospect of College Har-
bor which is being built out behind the gymnasium. This project
is being built for ASPEC members. It brings together the imagi-
nations and reams of youth and elders. Chaplan David Cozad
delivered the Benediction and a reception followed in Fox Hall.
There was punch and Hors d'ouvres catered by Saga.

Independent place to live.
During the 1970's, FPC faced some
berious financial problems. Until this
lime, the college was run by two promi-
nent Presbyterian Churches of St. Pete.
The government expanded the amount
af money used for higher education;
■money that was much needed by FPC to
help pay-off its short term bank loans.
According to the First Amendment in
the Constitution, church and state could
not mix. Therefore. FPC was unable to
collect any governmental funds for aid.

^■onal friend of Wireman's, for the vast
^imount of money he donated FPC was

The most eventful and probably most
predominate revolt by students took
*)lace in Brown Hall in 1972. A black
Eckerd student and about 25 of his fel-
ow black classmates occupied the pub
(then the bowling alley) in Brown Hall.
The students were protesting racism.
Outside the gameroom stood over 200
students offering their support for their
friends and classmates. After about 24
hours the administration agreed to meet
with the students to negotiate their de-
mands. "Over the next two weeks the
negotiations produced a five year plan
that high-lighted a better Afro-Ameri-
can studies program, a recruitment ef-
fort to tempt black students to Eckerd,
and an increased understanding of black
and white problems."
Throughout the remaining years of
Eckerd College's life until now, the
school went through changes ranging
from yearbook publications, change in
dorm life to a more lenient atmosphere,
female and minority rights became do-
minent, to the opening of the Pub, to
K;kerd College as it is today, home.
In conclusion, with many thanks to
eryone, students and faculty alike,
Eckerd College has become a place of
freedom in an established learning envi-
ronment comparable to home-spiced
with understanding and love. Eckerd has
become the fine institution it is today.

Prof. Carlsten, and the librarians for the

Ah, observe the common autohaven as they
sprint out of class throw their books in the
back seat, and cruise gracefully yet swiftly
across the plains to the great tide water at
Mt. Don Cesar, (aka Pink Point) There
they sleep, play odd games with paddles,
soak themselves with grease and fake pari-
lizalion, or oggle the opposite sexes of their
breed behind mirrored eyes. Amazing! In
the distance a herd of exotic Beach-too-far-
ians that seem to be inconspicously moving
toward the waterspot at the gymnasium
hills. A bashful group, they don't like the
fact that they lack the physical means to get
to Mt. Cesar so they try to avoid recogni-
tion. But, once at their watering hole they
have their own activities. Males of the spe-
cies do a masocist aerial dances from fixed
platforms before landing in the water,
treading back and forth all day between
two particular points. And, they share the
activities of their cousins the Autohavens,
of greased, fake parilization and opposite
sex oggling behind mirrored eyes. Of
course, there are many distinctively differ-
ent creatures roaming the plains. Most take
similar action in beating the heat and kill-
ing the clock. So it is that watersports are a
special part in the lives of the wild kingdom.

Life at Eck Tech
The alarm that was supposed to annoy
me when it roused me from a sound sleep,
didn't go off because of a power failure in
the night. So my stupid clock set on the
desk, flashing some absurd time at me and
enjoying it all the while. I could tell it was
hours into my first class and so I had
achieved my morning annoyance fix in sort
of a round about way. Stumbling out the
doorway in nothing but a towel, I leisurely
make my way to the shower. I do an about-
face when I greet two maintenance ladies
cleaning the shower. I'm not sure what day
of the week it is, but I have a strong suspi-
cion it's Monday. Feeling almost as grumpy
as grubby, I take a dare from a guy in the
hall, and go to lunch. We have chilidogs and
tacos and I sprint back to the complex,
steered towards the bathroom. The Pope
could be in there for all I care — nobody's
gonna stop me this time. Hey, look at this,
my lucky day, toilet paper and every thing.
My afternoon class seems to be dragging
into an evening class. (That's funny — my
schedual doesn't say anything about this)
Remembering some thing about our house
playing intramurals before dinner, I stroll
out to the field to see what the story is, but I
find out the story is that we lost in the
championships the night before. By the
lime I get back it's dinner time and we actu-
ally stand in line, waiting to get in (irony of
ironies). Well, dinner accomplished, I pre-
tend to convince myself that I'm now going
to settle in for about four or five serious
hours of studying. Ok! So, I wind up mak-
ing a compromise and spend a half hour in
the library (Good half an hour at that)!
Before long I'm drawn to the Pub and par-
take in the splendors of merriement for
awhile. It starts to look a little late and I
begin the journey back to my room. Sitting
in bed I reflect on the day and organize all
the errands, chores and assignments for to-
morrow. I reach for the clock, set the alarm
and look forward to the annoyances of to-

is indeed a rockin' an a boppin' and a swin-
gin' and a breakin' again this year. Music is
as big a part of life at Eckerd as is breathing

would come across some Lionel Richie,

ders above the rest. So there's a lot of diver-

"Good afternoon, Eckerd College," is the cheerful
greeting you hear when you dial 867-1 166. But our cam-
pus operators are more vital than any caller could imag-
ine. Betty Watson. Bridget Middlebrook, and Shirley
Wiltrout keep this school running smoothly over the tele-
phone wires. For those that work in the offices around
campus these women provide access to all WATS lines
and information for telephone numbers.
However, these women are probably most appreciated
by freshmen and ELS students. For it is here that the
connection by telephone is arranged. Whenever an ELS
student needs to call home a trek is made to the operator.
For the Freshmen Blues the operators provide a cure with
just one phone call to home.
So, next time you hear that familiar greeting remember
these ladies are extra-special in the day-to-day running of

Imagine yourself in an auditorium on a
cool fall evening, .standing shoulder to
shoulder with people you hardly know. As
you look around you see there's not an
empty seat left; hardly even standing
room. This situation occured not once, but
twice during October on Eckerd College
Campus. What or who brought so many
people out of hiding? Our Eckerd College

... Ed Bradley from 60 Minutes and
West Germany's Ex-Chancellor Helmut
On the evening of October 15, Ed
Bradley spoke to the students and guests
of Eckerd College about everything from
his job to economics, to his views in
politics. Ed Bradley opened with a short
speech of gratitude and thanks to the
Afro-American Society for their
organization and help. He then left the
floor open to a total and very enjoyable
question and answer session. Ed Bradley
has, in the past, worked with CBS,
WCBS Radio, visited Vietnam and
Cambodia along with many other places,
worked with the Carter campaign, then in
the White House, and later as anchor
man with Dan Rather and is now on 60
Minutes and enjoying every intriguing
minute. When Ed Bradley was questioned
by the audience about his views on the
political debates — his response was strong
and optomistic — "There is a lot of
courage in the debates this year, which is
encouraging. What is not encouraging is
the lack of interest and concern in people
about the presidential election."
On October 19, Eckerd College was
once again blessed with the honour of
having a distinguished guest visit our
school. West Germany's prior chancellor,
Helmut Schmidt spoke with his audience
about the much shared concern of
economics and political situation of the
world today. Helmut Schmidt opened his
lecture with the hard to swallow idea
that, "You think the world is in an
economic upswing, this is not so, the
world is in an economic crisis. Hunger
and starvation is greater today than in the
70's." He then spoke of his idea about the
bad and good characteristics of the
American entrepreneur. He both patted
us on the back, and offered some well-
thought through advice. After his speech,
Helmut Schmidt opened himself to a
question and answer session from the
audience. When confronted with the
question, "If you could vote in the 1984
presidential election — would you vote for
Mondale or Reagan?" Much to the
audience's surprise and enjoyment.
Helmut Schmidt answered, "I would
definatelv vote for . . . Gerald Ford."

The 1984 presidential elections was a
history making event. For the first time a
woman was running on a major party
ticket. During the Democratic conven-
tion Walter Mondale chose Geraldine
Ferraro of New York as his running
mate against the Republican incumbent
Ronald Reagan and George Bush. How-
ever, the strategies of Mondale did not
succeed as Reagan won in a landslide
election. Mondale carried only Wash-
ington D.C. and his home state of Min-
nesota in the electoral vote.
Students at Eckerd got involved in
both campaigns. Predominately seen
around campus were pro-Mondale signs.
In a student mock election, though, Rea-
gan won by a majority. However, there
was a small turnout for the mock elec-
tion just as for the real election.
All around the country college stu-
dents were supporting Reagan. It seems
as if Eckerd stands alongside the other
colleges and universities. Yet, it was not-
ed that students were still rebelling. As
the last generation rebelled against con-
servatism, perhaps we rebelled against
There is a legend about a day when the
natives of Eckerd Islands got more than rest-
less. That day has come to be known as Kon-
tiki Day and, as the story goes on October 6lh
the word "celebration" was given a new mean-
ing. Delta and Day Students sponsored the
musical, recreational, water festival on the
banks of the famed and ferocious "French-
man's "Rapids." Villagers came from all cor-
ners of the island to see things kick off with the
ceremonial raft race. In the main event, the
Delta tribe broke to an early lead and held off
a last minute thrust by the people of Epsilon to
win the race. However the Kappa-Sub is said
to have stolen the show by winning the "Titan-
ic Award" and a plaque "wreckognizing"
their marine film footage of the creek bottom
as "thoroughly outstanding!" Individual
tribesman competed against each other all day
in canoe and inner-tube races, as the masses on
the banks swung to the music of the islands.
There was feasting and drinking as the people
rejoiced that the gods of the weekend had
smiled on them. There was frisbee, volleyball
and hackey-sac by day and when the moon was
high in the sky, there was the magic of a "De-
lores Telescope" concert that no witch doctor
could touch. Then in the wee morning hours of
that Sunday a cloud slithered over the moon
and all the people headed back to their home-
lands in the darkness for the celebration was
over. The people of the Eckerd Islands will
always remember that day and they will keep
their souls open for a time when the sun again
burns bright in the sky and beckons them to-
gether for Kontiki Day.

ably and began:
"Not really. On Monday night I
usually cruise down the road about
six minutes to a place called "Cow-
boy," where 1 get nickle beers from
8:00 to 9:00. Then I jump down the
road about five more minutes to "The
Brown Derby" where they have
mixed drinks for a dollar from 9:00 to
12:00. On Tuesdays I go to the cam-
pus pub for a few pitchers with the
boys. Wednesdays I hit up a place
called "Beachstreet" where they have
three beers for a dollar all night. But
if I'm in the mood I may make "The
Brown Derby" for "Double-Bubble"
(two shots in one drink) from 9:00 to
12:00. Thursdays I get myself a cou-
ple of six-packs and take in "Hill-
street Blues". Friday and Saturday
nights it's S5.00 all you can drink at
"Cowboy", but there's usually a wild
party that I'm at on campus which is
sponsored by the Student Activities

Yes Virginia, there was a Zeta-Hallow-
een dance this year and it left the phrase
"triclc or treat" up in the air, as was some
good music, festive Jacic-0-Lanterns, and a
couple of spirited roof top spirits. It seemed
all was unearthly but the rain which, mas-
querading as a passing shower, fell from the
skies all night. However, the creatures that
came out that night were not to be fright-
ened away; for the wetter things got — the
better things got. There was the "custom-
ary" line at the kegs and a "surprise line"
(of Cocaine) winning the costume contest.
While there was plenty of "get-up gazing",
some partyers danced in pairs and others
danced in groups (but all danced in pud-
dles). The traditional field of vampires,
witches and goblins outnumbered the hid-
eous looking monsters that didn't wear cos-
tumes, and there were a good number of
imaginative outfits that made the evening
interesting. We all "identified" with the
guy who came as a meal card and Bob Mar-
ley's guest appearance was a hit. But, I was
a little disappointed that the Coors Beer-
wolf didn't show. That's alright though, the
dance was a howling success anyway. May-
be we should change the phrase to "trick
and treat" . . .

On Wednesday. November 14, Eckerd Col-
lege Theatre presented "Faust Variations" by
Marlowe. Goethe, Mann, Shelley, Wedding-
ton, McCullough, etc . . . The production was
directed by Professor Andra Wcddinglon. as-
sisted by David McCullough. Diane Durham
was the stage manager. Jenny Hosein assisted
her. Gregory Anderson was in charge of props;
Sheri Hodgson designed the set: and Professor
Richard Rice was in charge of lighting design.
The pla> is based on the four different versions
of the same story, about a man who sells his
soul to the devil. The production begins in the
Middle Ages. With a Good Angel floating
over head and Mephistophilis arising from a
trap, in Round 1. Faust is dressed by devils,
seduced by demons, entertains the court,
meets Helen of Troy and if that is not enough,
causes the death of a student and finally dies
himself. In Round 11 Faust gets a reprieve.
Now it's the age of Enlightenment. Here
I aust with Meph"s help meets some "wicked"
witches and their imp, seduces a young girl,
causes a revolution, kills an old couple and
once again dies. Now in Round III, we get into
the Frankenstein Era. Faust creates the Homo
Superior, introduces him to a group of Victori-
an dancers, gets married, is beat up by his own
creature, it kills Elizabeth, the wife, and final-
ly Faust goes crazy in the frozen Arctic and
shoots himself. In Round IV, Faust wakes up
from a night-marc, goes from scientist to poli-
tician to a construction worker with the help of
his psychiatrist. Dr. Meph I. Stophilis, loses
his wife, the whole world crashes in on him.
But never fear all ends well. As I pass this to
my editor, I can still hear my favorite line
being said "Hey .lerry, gotcha a new helpa".

Life here at Eckerd is one uncanny
experience after another. Last night was the
annual Sid Vicious party. Publicity had been
building up all week about what was to have
been the wildest party of the year, thanks to
anxious "Sid" veterans, telling tales of anarchy,
freaky costumes and high voltage excitement,
while foaming at the mouth. The event was to
be held in the Khaotic Kappa Kourtyard where
a group called "Dialogue" was supposed to lay
out some hard rockin'. Punk conversation. Alas,
a brief shower chased the evening inside, as it
was decided to ship the party to Fox Hall. But
there was still enthusiasm in the halls and
bathrooms as we made last minute preparations
for the dance by ripping shirts and writing on
pants (I am still scraping lipstick out of my ear
as 1 write). Refusing to give up on "Sid", we
piled into the place, and the die hards bounced
to the blaring of "Dialogue" while the rest of
us bumped into each other as we searched for
the beerlines in the dark. So Theo, I wouldn't
say "Sid" was a "Vicious" disappointment but
it was far from "Pistol-Hot" that's for sure.
That's all for now.

Darwin House. In the great tradition of the Uni-
versity of Southern California and UCLA and
now Eckerd College courageous contestants
strolled along the stage in the sardine-packed
Pub. With such cuddly cuties and flowing beer a
good time was guaranteed.
Geoffrey Holder appeared before a
small bul intimate audience on Tuesday,
Feb. 26, 1 985. Known for his acting roles
in such films as Live and Let Die and
The Gold Bug, Holder is most recog-
nized for his 7-Up commercials. The
evening was filled with song, dance, and
good conversation. "Uncle Geoffrey", as
the audience was told to call him, made
the performance into a special "living
room" type of gathering.
Born in Trinidad, he told the audience
of his background and how he was influ-
enced by the traditions of the islands. He
then proceeded to demonstrate the mu-
sic of his heritage.
Before he left he opened the floor to
questions. Rather than give stock an-
swers to what were probably the usual
questions Holder injected his replies
with spirited advice to everyone. He
urged the audience to always ask ques-
tions for it is always better to know than
not know something.
When the evening broke up the audi-
ence left with a feeling of just having
made a new friend. For Geoffrey Holder
that "star quality" of "touch-me-not"
just does not exist. As the saying goes,
"Never had it — never will!"

ously after viinning the queen contest. Right a colorful
display of skydiving.
Homelycoming?!? That is the perfect de-
scription for what took place during the first
weekend of December. Dorms across campus
sent their most lovely "girls" to represent them
in the Beauty Queen Contest. The annual
East- West flag football game teamed a Zeta/
Kappa/Day Student squad against a squad
representing the dorms along Dorm Drive. In
addition to the traditional activities, the
crowds were entertained by a daring skydiving
exhibition. Topping the celebration was the
annual Homelycoming/Christmas dance.
Couples danced the night away in a cafeteria
transformed for the occasion.

A unique feature of the Eckerd Waterfront is the community
member's ability to use the facilities without membership in a
formal club or organization. There are, however, many clubs and
teams sponsored by the Waterfront for those interested. The
TRITON SAILING TEAM sails in sloop and single-hand
competitions against schools from Charlestown to Gainesville in
SAISA (the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association),
while the TRITON BOARDSAILING TEAM competes in
regattas both in and out of the collegiate circuit. Members of the
TRITON WATERSKI TEAM compete in trick, slalom, and jump
events against schools throughout the Florida Region. The
WATERSPORTS ASSOCIATION is made up of students and
staff who have a variety of watersports interests; recreational
activities are planned throughout the year. One of the
Waterfront's most unique student organizations is Eckerd
College Search and Rescue. EC-SAR is a highly trained group of
students and alumni who provide maritime search and rescue
services to the Tampa Bay Boating Community.

Go placidly amid the noise and the
haste, and remember what peace there
may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons. Speak
your truth quietly and clearly; and listen
to others, even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they
are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter, for always
there will be greater and lesser persons
Enjoy your achievements as well as
your plans. Keep interested in your own
career, however humble; it is a real
possession in the changing fortunes of
Excercise caution in your business
affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue
there is; many persons strive for high
ideals, and everywhere life is full of
Be yourself. Especially do not feign
affection . . .
. . . Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and
disenchantment, it is as perennial as
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of
youth. Nurture strength of spirit to
shield you in sudden misfortune. But
do not distress yourself with dark
imaginings. Many fears are born of
fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be
gentle with yourself.
Your are a child of the universe no
less than the trees and the stars; you
have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to
you, no doubt the universe is unfolding
as it should. Therefore be at peace
with God, whatever you conceive Him
And whatever your labors and
aspirations, in the noisy confusion of
life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and
broken dreams, it is still a beautiful
world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

After slaving through the year to produce the LOGOS 85 the yearbook staff can now breathe a sigh of relief. It is all over on our pari!

As editor-in-chief I would like to thank some very special people without whom the LOGOS 85 would never have made it:
Jim Cobb, Herff Jones Representative
Belle Simmons, our Customer Service Adviser
Herff Jones Publishing Company
Lisa Andrews, sent from Heaven, this is her book.
Karen Eubanks, talented and a great help.
Mae DePalmenary, my salvation and friend. Thank you, Mae.
