<P Expectations 
Break Tradition 

jfa s summer's activities were 
JL JL coming to a close, people 
began returning to a traditional 
semester of classes. Samford was 
becoming a more personal univer- 
sity striving to enhance its stan- 
dards and better understand the 
needs of its students and faculty. 
During the year, students discov- 
ered a unique faculty and faculty 
discovered a unique student body. 
Both were seeking to discover dif- 
ferent lifestyles together. 

As the semesters quickly 
passed, the year proved to be any- 
thing but traditional. Whether it 
was listening to the first unexpect- 
ed football win in Maryville, 
Tennessee on WVSU or attend- 
ing one of the band parties, stu- 
dents had an enthusiastic spirit 
wherever they were. Samford was 
becoming a school of change with 
different things happening every- 

The summer provided a time 
for students to take vacations 
south to the beaches and north to 
the mountains. Some worked to 
raise money for tuition or attend- 
ed classes, but many just relaxed 
during their break from the pres- 
sures of school. During these 
short months, the university un- 
derwent a major face-lift that 
went beyond all anticipations the 
fall semester students might have 
had. Those alterations would 
serve the school well into the next

summer's football training. 



All year the environment at the uni- 
versity had a relaxed feeling, although 
never relenting on the Christian ideals 
and values that Samford was based on. 
The search for something to occupy a 
student's time never proved to be a 
long one. Often, the road led to Vail 
lobby and a Domino's pizza. Aside 
from gorging themselves, students 
formed study groups that thrived on a 
supply of Cokes, loaded with caffeine. 
From Wendy's to Baby Doe's, they 
always searched for creative alterna- 
tives to dining in the Cafe. Unlike past 
Jan-terms, dorm lobbies were sparsely 
populated as people looked for outdoor 
activities to occupy their time. The 
temperature rose to the 60 degree mark 
with no sign of snow in sight. 

The time came, however, for stu- 
dents to attend class, which seemed to 
some, a novel idea. Eight a.m. arrived 
earlier with each passing day and the 
one-and-a-half hour Tuesday/Thurs- 
day classes grew longer by the week- As 
the spring semester approached, it ap- 
peared that the only time not exhausted 
in class was spent in Step-Sing rehears- 
al. Every night for three weeks, groups 

T~*xcitement is found in many sum- 
L/ mer activities. Brian Lewis, a junior 
from Seltna, and Sandi Gilbert, a junior 
from Hanceville, find it at a costume 
party on roller skates.

Christian spirit in helping others.

On Pins and Needles 

The Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing of the 
Birmingham Baptist Medical Centers and 
Samford University merged in 1973. The 
John H. Buchannan Building at BMC-Montclair 
housed faculty offices as well as dormitory and 
classroom facilities for nursing students. Mrs. Ida 
V. Moffett, the lady for whom the school was 
named, is a graduate of the school. She maintained 
a prominent and active role by taking a personal 
interest in the students. 

The Nursing School was widely known for its 
excellent academic program. A few times a year, 
however, nursing students put away the books for a 
few hours of enjoyment. One of these occasions 
was the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner that was held 
one Monday before Thanksgiving Holidays began. 
Kim Carlile organized the dinner this past year. 
When asked how long the event had taken place, 
Kim, a resident assistant at Montclair, said, "I'm 
not sure, but I've been here for four years and it has 
been going on at least that long." The dinner was 
held in Harris Auditorium and the nursing students 

invited the basketball team as their special guests. 
Other guests included members of the Student 
Government Association as well as faculty mem- 
bers and their families. The guests were provided 
with plenty of food. Dinner consisted, naturally, of 
turkey and a variety of covered dishes. The turkey 
was supplied by the hospital and each girl was 
responsible for providing one covered dish. Kim 
said, "... we always have tons of food!" Guests 
were also treated to special entertainment. This 
entertainment varies from year to year. Mrs. Anne 
Hartlene, coordinator for the dinner, said, "One 
year the basketball team even sang Jingle Bells for 

Chris Young, a resident assistant, added, "This 
dinner sort of makes up for the real Thanksgiving 
Dinner that many of the girls will miss. Everyone 
will not be able to go home for the holidays. It also 
provides a bit of Thanksgiving for the basketball 
team since they are involved in a tournament and 
will not be able to go home either." — stacey Godfrey

Taking Drugs 

The Department of Pharmacy was orga- 
nized on January 31, 1927. It operated 
as an integral part of the university. 
Within the school, an active, countinuing 
education program was growing. The school 
was expanding the scope of its education op- 
portunities for pharmacists. The expansion in- 
cluded a seminar program held on campus with 
three seminars scheduled per semester. The first 
of these was held on October 13. In attendance 
were approximately 100 practicing pharmacists 
from throughout the state of Alabama. Atten- 
dance to later seminars increased at a pleasing 
rate to the Pharmacy School administration. 

Aside from the home based seminars, the 
school was investigating the possibility of cor- 
respondance courses under the direction of 

Lori Acunias. One exciting development in this 
area was a pilot project in connection with the 
Hospital Corporation of America. This pro- 
gram provided continuing educational pro- 
grams for all HCA pharmacists in 400 hospitals 
throughout the world. It involved the develop- 
ments of computer-assisted instructional units 
using a hand -held computer system known as 
Study -Pak. If successful, the school reserved 
the right to market this system all over the 
United States. 

As far as future plans for the department 
were concerned, the Pharmacy School was 
planning to take a group of pharmacists to the 
Samford Centre in London for a study in inter- 
national pharmacy.

Trial and Error 


Within our gates was housed one of the 
top law schools in the United States. 
The Cumberland Law School did not 
originate here, but was born in 1847 at the newly 
founded Cumberland University in Lebanon, Ten- 
nessee. On October 1, 1847, the first class of seven 
students met in the offices of the school's only 
instructor, Judge Robert Carruthers. Carruthers in- 
stituted what may have been the first mock trial 
program in a law school. In the 1950s Cumberland 
University closed its doors but found a new home 
for its law school. The Trustees of Cumberland 
reached an agreement with Howard College in Bir- 
mingham and in 1961, the Cumberland Law School 
began classes in the library of the newly named 
Samford University. By 1964, the school had 
moved to Memory Leake Robinson Hall where it is 
still housed. 

There were many reasons for the recognition 
that the Cumberland School of Law received. Per- 
haps the most prominent of these reasons was the 
mock trial program. This trial program is a yearly 

event that is sponsored by the American Bar Asso 
ciation and the American College of Trial Lawyers. | 
In 1984, the Cumberland School of Law won the { 
national competition for the second time in its 
history. At that time, Cumberland was only one of 
three schools to have won the competition twice. 

What does the mock trial program provide for a 
future lawyer^ James Haley, retired Circuit Court 
Judge, stated in the January 1985 "Birmingham" 
magazine article, "If you want good trial lawyers, 
you've got to give them practice. At Cumberland, 
they get all the practice they want. We prove all the 
time that if you want to be a good lawyer, this is a 
good place to be." 

In addition to the excellent mock trial program, 
the School of Law also boasted one of the most 
outstanding Student Bar Associations in the coun- 
try. The Association was comparable to the Student 
Government Association in the other disciplines of 
the University. The Student Bar Association re- 
ceived numerous awards from the American Bar 

Association. -Rachel Pinson

Black Holes and 

Dr. Glotfelty's Astronomy class became 
one of the most popular classes taken as a 
lab science requirements. In lecture, stu- 
dents learned about our galaxy, comets, stars, and 
the sun. In lab, students learned how to construct, 
set up, and use a telescope. Lab consisted of experi- 
ments dealing with different planets, plotting the 
paths of the stars, and use of different telescopes. 
Dr. Glotfelty also provided extra credit lunar 
and stellar labs. These met on top of the Physical 
Science Building at different times throughout the 
semester. In lunar labs, students observed the 
craters and maria of the moon. In stellar labs, the 
students were able to locate far away stars. 

The telescope on the roof of the Physical Science 
Building has been there for 20 years. It had a 16 inch 

reflecting telescope mirror and Kave optics tele- 
scope. It was used during required lunar labs to 
look at the moon, planets, and stars. There was one 
disadvantage to the location of the telescope. The 
lights of the city, pollution, and rain often inter- 
fered with what could be seen during the labs. 

Dr. Glotfelty has been teaching Astronomy for 
seven years. Aside from his astronomy classes, he 
taught physics, electricity magnetism, quantum me- 
chanics, and a seminar class. Dr. Glotfelty became 
interested in Astronomy as a child and he has been 
passing his interest along to others. Thanks to Dr. 
Glotfelty, when students did well in his class, they 
could say; "I saw it in the stars."

Teaching To Teach 

In addition to classwork and 
projects, students in the Or- 
lean Bullard Beeson School 
of Education gained on-hands 
experience in teaching elemen- 
tary through high school classes. 
The program was called the 
Professional Semester, and was 
taken in the student's final semes- 
ter of undergraduate studies. Be- 
sides teaching, each student also 
took "block" courses which were 
designed to fit in the first few 
weeks before entering the class- 
rooms. The teachers were graded 
on a pass/fail basis for these 
studies, and the grade was deter- 
mined by three evaluations: one 
from the cooperating teacher, 
one from the student, and one 

from a University supervisor who 
made a minimum of three visits 
to the classroom. These evalua- 
tions were then compiled by Dr. 
Jesse Jones, Director of Field Ex- 

To be admitted to the Profes- 
sional Semester, each applicant 
had to maintain a 2.2 minimum 
GPA on a 4.0 scale. To exit the 
school and become licensed by 
the Alabama State Board of Edu- 
cation, students had to accom- 
plish a 2.2 GPA in each area of 
curriculum: general, professional 
care classes, and his/her major 

OBB School of Education was 
accredited by the National Coun- 
cil Association of Teacher Edu- 

cation. It was also approved by 
the Alabama State Board of Edu- 
cation and was a member of the 
National Association of State 
Department of Teacher Educa- 
tion Certification, which was a 
required review by law. In 1985, 
the School was visited by both 
accrediting organizations and 
was again evaluated in the Spring 
of 1986 by The State Board of 

The School of Education 
gained wide-spread recognition 
over the state. Out of the 29 col- 
leges participating, Samford stu- 
dents ranked 2nd in line on pass- 
ing their exit exams, a 
prerequisite to licensing.

The Word Will Spread 


amford's new edition this year was the 
, renovated Journalism/Mass Communi- 
cations department headed by Dr. Cle- 
mensen. 10 years ago, the Journalism depart- 
ment was closed down, and while several of the 
courses were still offered, no major was avail- 

The new department was added, however, and 
though it was small it was full of energy to 
grow on. The word for the future of JMC defi- 
nitely became "expansion". There were ap- 
proximately 65 majors taught in the depart- 
ment, but within the next two years, Dr. 
Clemmensen planned to expand facilities and 
offer around 100 majors. The concentrations 
will eventually include advertising, public rela- 
tions, broadcasting and jouranlism. 

A vital part of the Journalism/Mass Com- 
municatons department had to be the addition 
of new faculty members with three new profes- 
sors added to the department. Clarke Stall - 
worth was a part-time professor and also served 
The Birminigham News as associate news edi- 
tor. Primarily, he taught writing courses using 

knowledge he gained in his 30 years of exper- 

Dr. Charles Russell came with 30 years of 
experience behind him also. He taught at Cor- 
nell University, University of Arkansas and the 
University of South Carolina, instructing Mass 
Communications courses. Dr. Jon Clemensen, 
head of the department, had been involved in 
the newspaper business and Journalism educa- 
tion for over 10 years. He taught the advertising 
and editing classes as well as serving as advisor 
for the Crimson and the Entre Nouse. 

The Journalism/Mass Communications de- 
partment offered students the chance to gain 
hands-on experience by working on the Crim- 
son and Entre Nous staffs or braod casting over 
the airways of our own radio station, WVSU. 
Dr. Clemmensen said that the community also 
appreciated Samford students and offered 
them internships even when they did not have 
much experience. He commented that "Sam- 
ford students seem to be a cut above other 
students. People are more willing to take a 
chance on them."

Dept. is the only full-time instructor. Dr. Russell 
Mr. Stallworth are the other new professors who 


Got What It Takes 

The debate program had an outstanding 
year under the leadership of director of 
forensics, Skip Coulter and first -year 
coach, Erik Walker. Debaters Keith Herron and 
Guy Boozer finished with a ninth place ranking 
in the 1986 National Debate Tournament held at 
Dartmouth College. The program as a whole 
traveled to tournaments at Vanderbilt, Emory, 
Mercer, West Georgia, Auburn, Texas A&M, 
Baylor, and other schools, with teams also com- 
peting at the University of Southern California, 
Wake Forest, North Western University, and 
University of Utah. Continuing to carry a good 
reputation, the debaters placed in top rankings in 
many of the tournaments they attended. 

The debaters, when not traveling or spending 
many hours in the library, also put much time 
into preparing for the Bishop Guild Debate in 

November and February. These tournaments for 
college and high school students, respectively, 
were named in honor of law school professor, 
Brad Bishop, who at one time the was highly 
successful director of the debate program. 

The regional college tournament enjoyed its 
biggest and best year yet, while the large high 
school tournament continued to attract top 
notch students from across the south to our 
campus. The program also ran an extensive high 
school debate workshop during the summer and 
a one-day workshop in the fall. University debat- 
ers and coaches worked with high school stu- 
dents and coaches statewide throughout the 
year, instructing them in debating theory and

Worth Checking 


One of the best things about 
college life was the chance 
to interact with fellow stu- 
dents in various organizations. Be- 
cause of this interaction, one gained 
valuable knowledge of people that 
could only be found outside of the 
classroom. A main benefit of involve- 
ment was the chance to strive with 
others to achieve a common goal. 
What was truly helpful to students 
was when college administrators went 
out of their way to become involved 
by aiding them in reaching their goals. 
Dean Rick Traylor was someone who 
tried to fulfill these expectations. 

Rick Traylor began his job in the 
summer of 1985, coming to Beeson 
Student Center from the North Caro- 
lina Baptist Association where he was 
a consultant to professional campus 
ministers and youth ministers across 
North Carolina. He tackled his new 
job as Assistant Dean of Students 
with great advances in developing 
and enhancing the structure of stu- 
dent activities. 

Traylor felt that, "Samford is a well 
kept secret," but he went on to add 
that it "is on the verge of being one of 
the great showplaces of the South- 

Traylor's office was always open to 
complaints and suggestions as well as 
being available for students to just sit 
and talk. His time to rest and chat, 
however, was minimal, for he was a 
very busy administrator. As well as 
being in charge of Beeson Student 
Center, Traylor was found in all as- 
pects of campus life. From committee 
meetings, athletic events, administra- 
tive work, fraternity and sorority 
functions, speaking engagements, 
mud wrestling, and even regular desk 
work, Dean Traylor put forth a 100% 
effort. His presence at these events 
made students aware of his commit- 
ment to the University. Dean Tray- 
lor's involvement with students was a 
factor of which the University could 
be proud.

the Swatch craze ex-

Swatch the acceptable norm, 
students adorned their arms 
with more of the plastic ti- 
mepieces in order to keep up 
with the hour in London, 
California, or the 
Physical Science 
Auditorium clock. 
Costing only 
$30, a Swatch was a relatively 
inexpensive accessory to 
match a wardrobe. Its bright 
colors and surprising designs 
became more of a status 
symbol than a Rolex!

graphics, paisley faces, ca- 
moflauge print, Halley's co- 
ment, or scented bands were 
popular models to choose 
from. Besides being a deco- 
rative addition to the wrist, a 
Swatch was waterproof and 
could be sub- 
merged up to 
100 feet. These 
made them the 
ideal sport watch. The popu- 
lar "swatch guard," a twisted 
bit of stretchy, colored plas- 
tic, added even more to a 
watch's worth, while protect- 
ing the face from scratches. 
Swatch quickly swept the na- 
tion, and was no longer a 
novelty, but an everyday ad- 
dition to an outfit. A

it's mark on the 1980's. Pais-

bold or subdued, it left noth- 
ing untouched. 

It was first found on wom- 
en's sweaters and dresses. 
Yet, gradually it grew to big-

everybody had the 
blues. Yet, the trend 
moved toward black, paisley, 
or floral prints instead of 
staying truly blue. Students 
found many ways to incor- 
porate the new blue jean 
styles into their wardrobes. 
Casual for a date, comfort- 
able for class, or sporty for 
hitting the town, an invest- 
ment in a good pair of jeans 
was essential. 

Guess? offered classy 
women's jeans with faded 
pockets to those shopping 
for a brand name. Bongo be- 
came popular when they 
manufactured splashy floral 
or paisley prints to renovate a 
plain jean collection. Cool 
black jeans by Forenza were 

the ticket for a hot night on 
the town, as the new styles 
became a personality state- 
ment. Designer jeans were 
decidedly out of fashion as 
Calvin Klein, Gloria Vander- 
bilt, and Jordache took a 
back seat to new fashions.

Blues were no longer just for 
the guys, now they were 
worn by both sexes. The 
shrink-to-fit style was a big 
hit for the Levi's company. 
Although they were once 
thought to be going out of 
style, jeans remained a defi- 
nite aspect of a college stu- 

dents wardrobe. Whether 
lounging around, or out and 
about, the blues may fade, 
but jeans will always re-

Decisions, Decisions. With a 
variety of old and new 
styles available, sometimes a 
well-worn favorite pair of jeans, 
matched with a denim jacket, is 
still the only choice.

no-frills pocket and a little

are you wondering why 
so much fuss was being 
made over compact disc

have thought that with LPs

close to perfect sound repro-

managed so far. 

The discs themselves were

could hold up to 74 minutes

the stored musical informa-

Nonetheless, if your re- 
cord library was basically 
complete, there was no need 
to jump on the CD band- 
wagon. Turntables and LPs 
would be around for the next 
30 years, though little effort 
would be made to improve 
their performance. If you

With stricter con- 
trols and more 
emphasis placed on safety, 
new laws were made to 
lessen the daily risks in- 
volved in driving a car. One 
of these laws provided for 
the addition of an extra 
brake light. The bright light 
was installed in the back 
window of all new cars. 
The law stated that any new 
car manufactured from the 
1986 models on, were re- 
quired to have an extra 
light in the window. 

The light was much 
more noticeable than the 
regular tail lights had been 
in the past. It was only 
bright when the brakes 

were applied and therefore 
at night it was not confused 
with tail lights. 

When the lights first ap- 
peared, they were not well 
accepted even though con- 
sumers knew it was in- 
stalled as a safety measure. 
Yet as more and more were 
manufactured and merged 
into the market, they be- 
came far less noticeable. 
Eventually only two brake 
lights will become the ex- 
ception instead of the 
norm. A

the fast-paced lifestyle of

quickly "buy now and pay

store in time for class, they 
were the perfect answer.

any college student. It was 
the excitement of finding 
mail in your box, and then 
the disappointment one felt

Our Hero 

Sylvester Stallone made 
the transition from 
boxer to fugitive in First 
Blood. The sequel, Rambo: 
First Blood Part II, was the 
hottest blood and sweat 
movie of the year. 

The character, Rambo, 
was released from the jail he 
was bound in at the conclu- 
sion of First Blood and sent 
by government officials to 
Vietnam to check on missing 
POWs. The movie traces his 
struggle through the jungle 
undergrowth as he wins the 

freedom of American 
POWs, instead of merely re- 
porting their existence. The 
muscle-bound hero manages 
to capture the helicopter and 
escape the perils of Vietnam 
while winning the ladies

action-packed flick appealed 
to all types and was a box-

WCAJ: Taking Great Strides 

birmingham's new 
local television 
station, WCAJ- 
TV opened doors for 
"old time" family enter- 
tainment. Channel 68 
provided cable viewers 
an alternative to prime 
time series. 

The station began its 
air time on Januray 31 
with the help and sup- 
port of local churches 
and institutions. 
Churches such as South- 
side Baptist, Indepen- 
dent Presbyterian, and 
St. Luke's Episcopal 

Even small tasks like in- 
serting a re-run tape re- 
quire great concentration 
to be sure that every detail 
is checked. WCAJ provides 
all types of family enter- 

were some donators 
that recognized the 
need for genuine family 
entertainment. As a re- 
sult, these churches and 
other institutions, such 
as Carraway Methodist 
Medical Center, bonded 
together to sponsor 
WCAJ with revenue to 
provide this entertain- 

Owned by Celtic Me- 
dia, Channel 68 was a 
non-profit corporation 
that objectively set out 
to provide a positive im- 
pact on the American 
family. WCAJ offered a 
variety of programs to 
satisfy the entire view- 
ing public. "Cisco Kid" 
remained ever popular 
with children Monday

was offered as an exer- 
cise program. 

Live broadcasts were 
also aired from the 
ACTS satellite station in

noon shows included 
such favorites as "I 
Dream of Jeannie" and 
"Bonanza". Nighttime

special concerts and 

Located on the east 
side of campus, Channel 
68 was a tremendous as- 
set to students looking 
into a broadcasting pro- 
fession. Internships and 
part-time jobs for stu- 
dents were available. 
Another advantage was 
that WCAJ completed 
the set forJMC majors.

Station manager, 
Greg Womble, de- 
scribed a typical day at 
Channel 68 as "unusual- 
ly crazy". He went on to 
add that no one day was 
ever the same and they 
"always had to be two 
steps ahead." The future 
of WCAJ is definitely 
taking great strides of

Arts and crafts festivals 
were held in the heart of

Desperately Seeking Sunshine 


et s see now, 
where did I 
stash those 
sunglasses last fall?" 

"Ah . . . my beach 
towel. I can't wait to lay 
it on the white sand and 
listen to the waves roll 
in while my skin drinks 
in those rays." 

Taking a spontane- 
ous trip down to the 
coast could be one of 
the most refreshing 
breaks for a student. 

Call a bunch of 
friends, and take off as 
soon as possible for the 

sunny beaches. 

Packing the right 
paraphernalia is also im- 
portant. It includes ev- 
erything from swimsuits 
and towels to suntan oil 
and beach balls. Flip- 
flops, Jams, and radios 
make the overnight bag 

Once all these items 
are collected, toss them 
in the car, roll down the 
windows, open the sun- 
roof, and turn up the ra- 
dio as you cruise down 
165, following the Flor- 
ida road signs.

Wet Results 

* f it's raining any- 

1 where in the world, 
it's raining in Bir- 
mingham! The valley 
that Birmingham rests 
in seems to attract and 
trap clouds that hover 
over the city and block 
out the sunshine. Some- 
times an entire week will 
go by without a glimpse 
of the sun. 

Waking up in the 
morning to find the 
mountain shrouded in 
mist and a slow drizzle 
sprinkling the campus, 
was a common occur- 
ance during the fall 
rainy season. From foot- 
ball games to Fall Carni- 
val, rain plagued many 
campus events. In the 

Gulf, hurricane Elena 
caused many weather 
problems for Alabama. 
People evacuated coast 
al towns and headed in- 
land. Driving wind and 
rain followed them and 
the effects of the storms 
were felt all over Ala- 

Rain coats, Duck 
shoes, and a sturdy um- 
brella were a must as the 
rain fell day after day. 
Relief came, however, 
when a dry spell hit dur- 
ing the spring season. 

Bright umbrellas could 
be seen even from Vail 
dorm when several dedi- 
cated students stuck it out 
during a rain storm at a 
home football game. 

Birminghamians who 
had complained about 
the constant stream of 
rainy days in the fall, 
now found themselves 
searching the skies for 
those familiar black

(Vi/Junk Mail 



Will It Be Trash or Treasure? 

Some frequented it 
up to six or seven 
times a day, some as lit- 
tle as once a week. To 
some it brought a ray of 
sunlight into their dreary 
day of 8 o'clock classes 
and afternoon labs; to 
others a crashing feeling 
of despair and loneli- 
ness. No, the place in 
question was not Stu- 
dent Accounts, Regis- 
trar's, or even the Cafe, it 
was the day-making — or 

Atypical home for mail 
box stuffers and cam- 
pus memos is the trash cans 
located near the post office. 

breaking — Post Office. 

A simple gaze into 
that little box could 
bring hope, a romantic 
love letter, food, or for 
the lucky ones, even 
money! Usually though, 
these initial hopes were 
crushed by the reality of 
the dreaded campus 
mail. Everything from 
"revised book store 
hours" and pizza cou- 
pons to SGA memos 
and fear-striking green 
envelopes containing 
telephone bills. 

A favorite box stuffer 
was the church bulletin. 
Some students got as 
many as three a week, all 

from different churches. 
Their only competitor 
was the Pizitz flyer, 
which everyone would 
agree was much better 
than a Pizitz bill. 

But despite the deves- 
tation of finding bills 
and flyers and such junk 
mail, some students con- 
tinued to check their 
mail every time they 
went through the Stu- 
dent Center. It was their 
hope that, after wading 
through the colorful 
campus mail that deco- 
rated the floor and trash 
cans, some real mail 
might be found.

Once In A Lifetime 

not seen since 
1910, Halley's 
comet orbited into 
Earth's view once again. 
Comets, known as neb- 
ulous celestial bodies, 
revolve around the Sun. 
They are characterized 
by a long, luminous tail 
that can only be seen 
when the object is mov- 
ing toward the Sun. The 
coma of some comets 
exceed the planet Jupi- 
ter in size. However, the 
solid portion of most 
comets is equivalent to 
only a few cubic kilo- 

Comet mania became 
very visible last spring, 
as did Halley's. The 
heavenly body was used 
as promotional material 
on everything from 

shirts to watches. A spe- 
cial exhibit was even 
held at the Riverchase 
Galleria featuring a 
large painting of the 
comet's path through 
the heavens and several 
videotapes and comput- 
er graphics. 

Halley's had best visi- 
bility in March and 
April. It could clearly be 
seen with a pair of bin- 
oculars. To make comet 
watching more exciting, 
star parties were sched- 
uled by the Birmingham 
Astronomical Society in 
late March. Also, many 
people gathered on 
Hwy 280 to view the 
once in a lifetime ob-

happen what I think just 
happened." The space 
shuttle Challenget silent- 
ly crept upward arching 
beautifully on another 
voyage into the vast 
realm of outer space. 
Hundreds of people 
marveled once again as 
American technology 
displayed its might. 
Then there was that little 
flame. Only 73 seconds 
after liftoff, seven 
Americans "slipped the 
surly bonds of earth to 
touch the face of God." 
It was a cool Januray 
morning at Cape Canav-

and a school teacher 
were strapped into the

beginning of a journey 
most can only dream 
about. Mission control 
checked, and then re- 
checked all the vital 
equipment that would 
sustain them on their 
journey. Finally, the 
words came through the 
headsets. The final 
countdown had begun. 
The shuttle's three main 
engines and two solid 
rocket boosters came to 
life. The craft slowly 
crept upward freeing it- 
self of the cumbersome 
bonds of the launch pad. 
The horror came fas- 
ter than the mind could 
comprehend it. The little 
flame mysteriously ap- 
peared on NASA's long 
range cameras. Where it 
came from or what

The cause of the terri- 
ble explosion that put an 
ugly scar on NASA's rel- 
atively unscratched safe- 
ty record was the subject 
of much study and spec- 
ulation by experts 
around the world. The 
facts were sparse. After 
70 seconds into the 
flight a faint orange 
glow flickered between 
the shuttle's belly and 
the adjacent external 
fuel tank. The huge tank 
full of liquid oxygen was 
clearly the source of ex- 
plosion, but where the 
orange glow came from 
was a much harder ques- 
tion to answer. That 
didn't matter then. 
America had just lost 
seven heroes. Seven 
Challengers who were 
willing to risk it all in 
pursuit of a perfectly 
American dream, to 
reach for the stars. Only 
this time, it just wasn't 
meant to be.

English faculty since 
1971, was killed in an auto- 
mobile accident on Monday. 
August 19- He was traveling 
through Mississippi when his 
car ran off the road late that 
evening. Dr. Treadway was a 
popular teacher because he al- 
ways seemed to take a person- 
al interest in his students. A

honor of Dr. Treadway was 
established for Samford stu- 
dents by Mrs. Patricia Tread- 

way, and children, Elizabeth, a 
Samford graduate, and Scott, 
a current student.

Ministry In Outreach 

Ginny Bridges is a remark- 
able young woman who 
has taken on a tremendous 
responsibility as the director of 
Campus Ministries. As director, 
Ginny planned numerous campus 
activities which included such 
events as RA hall sessions and stu- 
dent missions. Students took Cam- 
pus Ministry sponsored mission 
trips to Panama City Beach, Rio 
Grande and other exciting places 
to teach and spread God's Word 
to others. Ginny even took charge 
in promoting social concerns such 
as world hunger. These were just a 
minute portion of activities that 
she headed up with the help of 

student committees. The students 
who worked closely with her felt 
that Ginny was the paragon of en- 
couragement. She was always en- 
thusiastic and excited. And, even 
when things were not successful, 
she hung in there and persevered 
with a faithful determination. 

Being a woman in the ministry 
is a difficult task, but Ginny was 
obviously following God's calling. 
Besides being a campus minister 
director, Ginny allowed herself to 
be a friend to students as well. 
Gracie Hudson, who was an affili- 
ate of Ginny's and the president of 
Campus Ministries, felt that Ginny 
was an extremely warm and sensi- 

tive person. She encouraged Gra- 
cie and several other students to 
follow their calling into the minis- 

Ginny was definitely a strong 
and committed spiritual leader, 
unconcerned with mundane sur- 
roundings. She added a great deal 
to the prestige of Samford and im- 
mensely to its Christian atmo- 
sphere. The traditions Ginny start- 
ed in Campus Ministries for 
students and the surrounding 
community remained a vital part 
of the Christian emphasis that the 
university provided its students.

The Christian drama 
group Act: 8 was 
among one of the many 
activities sponsored under Cam-

unique style to present drama in 
a creative and zany atmosphere. 
The members were always eager 
to spread the excitement of 
Christianity through drama. 
Even though Act: 8 was not ac- 
tually the same in number as the 
previous year, they were still the 
same in purpose and much 

Act: 8's primary goal was to 
glorify God and lift up the name 
of Jesus Christ in front of all 
mankind. The group chose to 
present the good news of God 
through acting because it was 
personal and easy for the audi- 
ence to relate to. The dedicated 
members of Act: 8 felt that their 
characters were actually part of 
themselves. Act: 8 projected 
comfortable and relaxed sur- 
roundings for college students 
to have fun and yet at the same 
time disseminate the love and 
strength of Jesus to others. Act: 
8 concentrated all their efforts 
into stressing the importance of 
knowing God and the provi- 
sions He made available to 
know Him.

has to audition every year, as do the vocalists. 

Singing is not Koinonia's only activity. 
They are strongly supported through

Posing as Ben's backup group, the vocal

Koinonia was a contem- 
porary Christian en- 
semble whose purpose 
was to declare the gospel of Je- 
sus Christ through contempo- 
rary music. The name Koinonia 
was derived from the Greek 
word translated "fellowship" 
which actually meant "sharing 
in common." Koinonia's pur- 
pose was summed up in I John 

"... declare we unto you that 
you might have fellowship 
(koinonia) with us, and truly our 
fellowship (koinonia) is with the 
Father through Christ Jesus." 
With the attitude that Koinonia 
had, it is no wonder that they 
saw their abilities as a special gift 
for adapting to worship and 
reaching out to others. 

The members or Koinonia 
were selected through annual 
auditions. The group ministered 
throughout the southeast in 
church functions, campus activi- 
ties, and mission field evangel- 
ism. To be a member of Koin- 
onia, one must be a Christian 
vocalist and/or instrumentalist 
with a sincere desire to know- 
God and make him known to 

all. — Kim Shanktin

Ministry in Missions I 

Sponsored by Dr. Sigurd Bryan, 
Ginny Bridges, and Dr. Timo- 
thy Banks, BSU Choir was 
composed of students who had volun- 
teered their time and efforts in exerting 
the importance of worship through 
music. They spread their love of God 
by singing in convocations, area 
churches, tours and special occasions. 
When a few members were asked why 
they volunteered to participate with 
BSU, they gave responses such as: "be- 

cause they love to sing", "meet new 
people", and "minister to others." 
Though BSU was small in number, 
they took on a tremendous responsibil- 
ity in spreading Christianity to others. 
Their objectives included leading peo- 
ple from all backgrounds and church 
experiences in worship, and clearly pre- 
senting the plan of salvation in con- 
certs and mission activities, leading to a 
point of decision. One way in which 
BSU planned to meet these objectives 

was by taking a winter ministering tour 
to Bethel Bible Village which served as 
a place for kids whose parents were in 
prison. Here, BSU opened new doors 
for the children and showed them 
God's love. BSU Choir has obviously 
took on many responsibilities and as a 
group, they shared close relations and a 
deep concern for others.

senior honorees and puts everyone 

In the Christmas Spirit 

As luminaries lit the path along the 
sidewalk, students gathered in Reid 
Chapel for the traditional senior rec- 
ognition ceremony, Hanging of the Green. 
This year's ceremony was held on Tuesday, 
December 3. 

Sarah Standerfer, a junior from Nashville, 
Tennessee was the committee chairman. This 
year, twelve honorees were chosen. These sen- 
ior students were nominated by various cam- 
pus organizations and then voted on by the 
Council of Chaplains of Campus Ministries. 
They were selected for their outstanding lead- 
ership, scholarship, and overall contribution 
to campus life. 

The traditional events of the service includ- 
ed, The Lighting of the Advent Wreath, The 
Hanging of the Green, The Holly and the Ivy, 
The Lighting of the Chapel, The First Christ- 
mas Tree, The Lighting of the Chrismon Tree, 
and The Candlelighting Service. The honorees 
were placed throughout the chapel and held a 
part in each event. This was a new addition to 
this year's ceremony. While the previous year, 
different seniors participated in each part of 
the program.

Ministry through Love 

Spring Break of '86 will be a long 
remembered experience for a cer- 
tain group of dedicated students. 
These delegates went to New Orleans, 
LA on a mission trip sponsored by Cam- 
pus Ministries. They left Pittman Circle 
Saturday morning March 8, with every- 
thing from pillows to puppets stuffed 
into their cars. After a long but fun day 
of driving, the group finally made it to 
the Vieux Carre Baptist Church, in the 
heart of the French Quarter. 

Here a week of many trials and victo- 
ries began. The pastor, Roy Humphreys, 
was instantly befriended by the ones 
who had not been to New Orleans the 

previous year, and old times were dis- 
cussed by those who had experienced 
the city before. After unpacking and an 
orientation session, everyone went out 
to explore and make the much anticipat- 
ed trip to the Cafe du Monde for beig- 
nets, a delicious, sugared pastry. 

Sunday, the students were in charge 
of the church service, held in the small 
chapel on Dauphine Street. During the 
week they used their special talents to 
minister to those in need. As the days 
passed, many friendships were made, 
both with people on the streets and with- 
in the group itself. Bonds were formed 
which will never be broken. 

Like all the students that went to New Orleans, Kim 
Thornhill shares with people as she walks down 
the street. Here, she talks to a new Christian named 

Tony, a runaway, was led to the Lord, 
and adopted by everyone as a willing 
helper and friend. Steve, a friend return- 
ing from the year before, became a spe- 
cial tool to help minister to those from 
his past. 

After three days of puppets, singing 
and praise in Jackson Square, and a wor- 
ship service at the Baptist Rescue Mis- 
sion, not one individual could say that 
he had not played an active part in shar- 
ing God's love with those who so obvi- 
ously needed love in their lives. 

— Amy Pierce 

Finding new truths in God's Word, Tony eagerly 
reads the scriptures. Tony is a new friend gained 
during the spring trip. 

Singing choruses with the congregation becomes a 
crucial part of worshipping. Susan Graves and 
John Elrod lead in songs of praise.

Philosophy of Teaching 

The classroom environment should be a place for 
learning not only about some subject but about 
one's self as well. A classroom should allow a per- 
son to feel good about himself and provide the 
opportunity for success. Often we tend to reinforce 
only the negative in the classroom while ignoring all 
the positive behaviors that exist. 

The teaching/learning process should allow stu- 
dents to identify their strengths and feel a sense of 
accomplishment through them, yielding a positive 
self-image. Weaknesses should also be identified 
and put in proper perspective. There is too much 
pressure to do well in everything, which we all know 
is impossible for we all have weaknesses. 

I've tried to remember all the experiences I've had 
with teachers and not replicate them, at the same 
time I've attempted to impliment the positive beha- 
viors, most of which came in college. 

In monitoring my teaching behavior, I've always 
tried to put myself in the students position. 

I can remember wanting to teach since the age of 
five years when I would line my dolls up and teach 
them the alphabet. I've had other career opportuni- 
ties but can't leave my first love teaching and work- 
ing with people.

instructs many different psychology courses. 

Chosen by graduating seniors. The John 
Buchanan Award is a reputable and 
respectable one. Here, Dr. Jones receives her

l )2/John Buchanan Award 



II llljeing a qualified teacher 
1 l=yand respected friend, Dr. 
^Charlotte Jones was this 
year's recipient of the presti- 
gious John Buchanan Award. 
Dr. Jones received her doctorate 
and School Psychology creden- 
tials from the University of Ala- 
bama, Tuscaloosa. Originally 
from Adamsville, her major was 
Pre -law before she began study- 
ing psychology. She once 
worked as a court recorder in 
Mobile. She then realized that 
psychology and teaching better 
fit her needs and added to her 
personal fulfillment. 

Although she has been teach- 
ing here for thirteen years, Dr. 
Jones feels that she is going 
home instead of going to work 
each day. The pleasant people 
and Christian atmosphere give 
her the freedom to be an indi- 
vidual in her career. Dr. Jones 
instructs five psychology 
courses including: General De- 
velopment, Adolescent Psychol- 
ogy, Social Organizations, Ab- 
normal Psychology, and 
Psychological Testing. 

This award was named for 
Dr. John H. Buchanan who was 
a long-standing trustee. The re 

cipient is chosen by a faculty 
committee. Before the top two 
or three teachers are considered 
by the committee, they have 
been nominated in a survey of 
graduating seniors. The seniors 
can nominate up to four teach- 
ers of the university, then two 
from their major. The points are 
totalled and then turned over to 
the faculty committee. This 
honor has never been awarded 
to the same teacher twice. Obvi- 
ously, students respect Dr. Jones 
as a teacher, yet they also admire 
her as a friend. 

— Susan Herrington 

Jeff Prince, a senior 
from Lacey's Spring, 
and Kelly Lenox, a 
sophomore from 
Somerville, are just two 
of Dr. Jones students 
who admire and respect 
her teaching talents.

Reid Chapel on Wednesday, 
April 16. during convo hour.

he polish and poise 
in the Miss Entre 
Pageant was a- 
chieved through the dedi- 
cation of pageant direc- 
tors, Clay Chaffin and 
Marsha Prichett, who 
worked hard to make this 
Miss Alabama Preliminary 
a success. The fact that the 
pageant was an official 
Miss Alabama Preliminary 
required many hours of ex- 
tra work. Everything that 
was done had to be ap- 
proved by Miss Alabama 
Headquarters. Very strict 
official rules drawn up by 
The Miss America Pageant 

System, and distributed 
among the fifty states, had 
to be followed exactly. 

Pageant meetings with 
the contestants began im- 
mediately following Step 
Sing. A Miss Alabama 
field director came and 
held a pageant workshop 
informing the contestants 
of exactly what they need- 
ed as well as what was ex- 
pected of them. This work- 
shop was the beginning of 
what proved to be a major 
undertaking for the pag- 
eant staff. 

The theme "A New At- 
titude" was chosen, and re- 

hearsals got underway for 
the contestants and direc- 
tors. Several rehearsals 
were held that provided 
the girls with a chance to 
become used to the stage. 
They rehearsed the swim- 
suit, talent, and evening 
gown portions of the show 
which enabled them to get 
to know one another. Pre-

Ah Summer! 

Summer and 
School, do the 
two mix? 

Whether on the beach or in the classroom, 
students spent their summers in two differ- 
ent worlds. While most were working at 
summer jobs, serving as summer missionaries or relaxing 
on family vacations, Samford was going through another 
term of summer school. 

Though on a smaller scale, classes ran much as usual 
during the summer term. Students lived in air-condition- 
ed Smith and Pittman. They took classes in chemistry, 
foreign languages or anything else they needed in order 
to make up credits or get a little ahead. 

Aside from the two summer school terms offered, 
Samford engaged in a variety of other events during the 
summer. Debate and Yearbook workshops were hosted 
on campus for high school students, in addition to so- 
rorities preparing for Rush on different weekends 
throughout the summer. 

One of the highlights of the summer was the three 
orientation weekends lead by Solo teams made up of 
Samford students. These weekends gave incoming fresh- 
men and transfer students the opportunity to register for 
fall classes and gain first hand information about Sam- 
ford. They attended fraternity parties, went to orienta- 
tion seminars and got their first taste of the cafe. 

The University did not just shut down over the sum- 
mer; it was alive and active in summer programs and 
preparations for the fall semester.

Summer Missions 


Lake Placid, New York, New 
York City, Mexico, along the 
Rio Grande, and Panama City 
Beach were a few of the exciting places 
where Samford Students gave their time 
for summer mission work. 

Cindy Morris and Ann Carol McGaha 
were the chairmen for Summer Mis- 
sions. Campus Ministries sent a team of 
six to minister in music for ten weeks at 
Lake Placid. They held concerts in hos- 
pitals, worked in local churches, super- 
vised youth groups and directed day 

camps throughout the Lake Placid area. 

Kay McCollum, Amy Graves, Jeff Al- 
lison, and Tim Spurgeon went as a mis- 
sion team to New York City for two 
months. They held Bible schools and led 
music programs. They were also sent out 
by the Campus Ministries Summer Mis- 
sions Program. 

Other students did mission work in 
Panama City Beach where they worked 
with Campus Outreach of Alabama on 
Summer Beach Project. Students from 
colleges throughout the south spent 

their summer witnessing and sharing 
through activities sponsored by Beach 

Students also traveled to the Rio 
Grande where they held day camps for 
underpriviledged children. This "River 
Ministry" was sponsored by the Spanish 
Club and has been a long-standing mis- 
sion adventure in the Language Depart-

Making A Home 

In the fall as a student packs up all 
his belongings to move to 
school, he usually leaves behind 
more than mom's home cooking. His 
own bathroom, plenty of space, and 
the absence of roaches are some of 
the things college students give up for 
the dorm sweet dorm. 

For many students, moving to 
school this year was more of an ordeal 
than usual. Girls who were accus- 
tomed to living in C East were moved 
to rooms in Smith since their hall was 
turned over to guys making the first 
Coed dorm. 

The overflow of girls were housed 
in the "barracks" of Vail, and the old 
Kappa Delta sorority room. By the 
middle of the fall semester, however, 
most of the girls were moved into 

permanent rooms. 

Housing was more of a problem 
for freshmen and transfer students. 
One transfer, a junior from Enter- 
prise, was housed in Vail's barracks. 
She thought she had paid all the nec- 
essary fees, yet upon arriving she was 
told she lacked twenty -five dollars 
and would be living with five other 
girls in the barracks. Luckily, within 
two weeks everyone was moved out 
of the barracks into permanent hous- 

Thomas Harvey, a freshman from 
Columbus, Mississippi lived in the 
gymnasium along with four other stu- 
dents. He shared an office turned into 
a bedroom with one roomate. Thom- 
as said that the bad part of living in 
the gym was the lack of social activ- 

ity. Therefore, he spent a great deal of 
time in Pittman. 

Mike Manning, a freshman from 
Corner, and Fran Adkinson, a fresh- 
man from Hueytown, were two of the 
students who lived in A - B dorm. Both 
said that they thoroughly enjoyed liv- 
ing in a coed environment. 

Each individual had their own sto- 
ry about the perils of moving in, but 
most problems were worked out. Stu- 
.dents who were not happy with their 
room situation during fall semester 
had a chance to change rooms for the 
spring semester. Tim Hebson and 
Candi Gann did their best to help 
students with their housing problems.

The first week of school, a student's room is 
in a state of confusion, but as soon as a room 
is put in order it can be a niche for them to "get 
away from it all." 



Birmingham's own solution to Miami Vice is well

From Five Points to the Botanical

On The Move 

Birmingham has emerged as the Southeast's hub for medical 
'care and reserach, biomedical engineering, and finance. 
|he city is now involved in an ambitious construction boom 
hth the erection of the Equitable Financial Centre, SouthTrust 
fank Tower, and the Riverchase Galleria Metroplex. 

reen Springs Highway is just one of the major arteries that 
kjslices through the city of Homewood. This strip offers 
idividuals everything from eating establishments to retail 

Waterfalls, statuary, and flora 
from throughout the world are 
features of the Botanical Gardens. 
The flower collections are one of the 
largest in the deep South and the 
bonsai exhibit and the fern collec- 
tion have national reputations. 

When campus life, or cafeteria 
food got to be too much, stu- 
dents often ventured outside 
the gates to taste a little bit of the com- 
munity. Whether it was fast food on 
Green Springs Highway, a lazy picnic at 
Oak Mountain state park, or the fast- 
paced action of Five Points South, stu- 
dents could find plenty when they were 
ready to get away. 

The Botanical Gardens were a roman- 
tic way to spend an afternoon. Students 
were seen strolling hand-in-hand 
through the lush pathways and exotic 
greenhouses that made the Gardens a 
quiet place to talk and relax. 

As afternoons turned into evenings, 
the craving for food drove students to 
Green Springs or Valley Avenue where 
fast food restaurants abound. For those 
with a little extra money, Baby Doe's, or 
Fred Gang's gave students a second 
choice. Steak & Egg provided a home 
for late-night studiers who lost out when 
the International House of Pancakes 
shut its doors for good. 

From low cost trips to the 200 and the 
Vulcan observation deck, to free en- 
trances at Sloss Furnaces Museum or the 
Botanical Gardens, students found Bir- 
mingham an exciting place to live.

Renovations to Beeson Student 

Center, additions to Seibert Gymnasium, and 

construction on the new dorms gave the campus 

A New Look 

Samford was putting on a new 
face as construction and ren- 
ovations began all over cam- 
pus. The Student Center and the new 
dorms underwent alterations that 
were geared toward the growing 
needs of the student body and staff. 
The bookstore was expanded to in- 
clude more cash registers, dressing 
rooms to try on clothing, and extra 
space for book displays. The hours 
were extended so students were able 
to shop in the evening as well as the 
morning. Mrs. White, manager of the 
bookstore, was excited about the 
changes and said, "The bookstore is 
for the students, and we are here to 
help in any way." The much needed 
expansion of the bookstore was a wel- 
come sight to returning Jan -term stu- 


Another major addition to campus 
was the construction begun on the 
new dorms. The east side of the cam- 
pus underwent total renovation and 
students were told that the dorms 
would be opened in the fall of '86. 
The rumors of East Campus housing 
slowly became a reality as a residential 
village with five to seven dorms 
emerged from the woods behind the 
chapel. These apartments, which 
would house around 41 students each, 
included all the comforts of home 
with a kitchen area, carpet, cable TV 
hook-up, computer interface outlets, 
and spacious storage areas. One wel- 
come addition was the provision of a 
parking space for every student, re- 
ducing parking problems to a mini- 


The Student Center also under- 
went major changes. With the addi- 
tion of new post office boxes, expan- 
sion of the lounge -pool table area, 
and the additions to the snack bar, the 
Student Center was much better 
equipped to fill the student's needs. 
Sam's Place, as the snack bar was 
named, added a salad bar, pizza deliv- 
ery to the dorms, and an extended 
menu to accompany the expansion of 
other areas in the Student Center. 

The addition of the new dorms, the 
renovations to the bookstore, and the 
expansion of the Student Center 
made the campus much more conve- 
nient and comfortable for students.

Establishing traditions was 
part of the job given to the 
Homecoming Committee. 
Samford's second football Home- 
coming proved to be one full of 
excitement and energy. 

The committee, chaired by Pat 
Price, sponsored different events in 
the Cafe each night. The jazz ensem- 
ble provided dinner music and Lisa 
Bradfield, a senior from Atlanta, 
Georgia, entertained her audience 
with a comedy routine based on the 
professors and staff. 

Lambda Chi Alpha was awarded 
first place for their skit "Lambo" 
and Phi Mu won first place with "If 

I weren't a Phi Mu ..." in the skit 
competition held during the pep ral- 
ly on the football field. Alpha Delta 
Pi won first place for their float en- 
try to the Intrafraternity Council 
float competition. 

Although the score of the game, 
63-7, against the University of Day- 
ton, was not all that the team or its 
fans desired, the halftime activities 
were thoroughly enjoyed. After the 
band performance, the Homecom- 
ing Queen was finally crowned. 

Laura Billingsley and Dawn Can- 
trell served as the Sophomore atten- 
dants while Stacia Sinclair and Ja- 
nice Thompson represented the 

Junior class. Gracie Hudson was the 
Senior attendant and Traci Arm- 
strong was crowned Homecoming 
Queen 1985. 

Despite the shattering loss, stu- 
dents kept their energy level high by 
attending the Homecoming Party 
held at Quality Inn -South. The en- 
tertainment was provided by a disc 
jockey from 1-95.

1 VS/F.nd of the Money 

Too much month at the 

End of the Money 

As tuition and the cost of 
living rose steadily, more 
and more college students 
were working throughout the 
school year instead of just the tradi- 
tional summertime employment. 

The Birmingham community of- 
fered a wide variety of job opportu- 
nities. Many students found intern- 
ships dealing with the subject they 
were majoring in, or jobs that pro- 
vided them the money they needed 
for school. 

Work -study was an option of- 

fered to students who wanted to 
work on campus. The bookstore, 
library, cafeteria, and Samford Hall 
offices provided all types of jobs for 
students seeking on-campus posi- 
tions. Assistant teaching in biology 
or chemistry labs, shooting pictures 
for photographic services or work- 
ing in sports medicine also gave stu- 
dents job opportunities that offered 
them experience for their major. 

Many used the money they 
earned to help pay for tuition, 
books, or spending money. Yet, 

however their earnings were used, 
one can be sure it never lasted long. 
Students caught in the crunch 
learned to pinch pennies to make 
ends meet. The word "overdrawn" 
was commonly heard and the dread 
of having to call home for more 
money was frequent. 

With the threat of running out of 
money always present, college stu- 
dents were forever trying to get and 
keep jobs that helped their bank 
balance survive the college years.

Cold Night At the 
Carnival ^— 

After being postponed 
due to hurricane 
winds and rain, the 
night of Fall Carnival 1985 fi- 
nally arrived with clear skies 
and freezing temperatures. Stu- 
dents bundled up in warm 
sweats and down jackets and 
spent an evening in the parking 
lot of LSW to support summer 

Organizations set up booths 
to sell their wares with all pro- 
ceeeds going to fund summer 
mission projects. A dunking 
booth, a Pepsi taste test, a 

haunted house, and a rope slide 
from tree top to parking lot 
were some of the new additions 
to this year's variety of booths. 
The traditional cotton candy, 
hot dogs, funnel cakes, and na- 
chos were in popular demand 
as students sought to warm 
themselves from the bitter 

The highlight of the carnival 
was always the mudwrestling 
contest, and this year proved to 
be no exception. Students 
pooled their money in order to 
watch Dean Cox and Ginny 

Bridges battle for the title of 
Mud Wrestling Queens. Dean 
Traylor teamed up with Tim 
Hebson to challange them in a 
mean fight to the end. The 
wrestling finished in a spray of 
mud across the crowd. 

Despite the freezing tem- 
peratures and double postpon- 
ement, this year's edition of Fall 
Carnival was an overwhelming 
success. It will always remain 
an unrivaled tradition of the 
Fall semester.

When students think of Jan 
Term, visions of cold 
winds, nights spent by the 
fire in Vail lobby, games of Trivial 
Pursuit, and sliding on cafe trays 
down Vail hill all come to mind. Yet, 
this Jan Term turned out to be differ- 
ent from the norm. Classes started at 
8:00 Saturday morning, and students 
prayed for snow to cancel them. No 
snow fell, however, and classes con- 
tinued as scheduled. The snow never 
appeared since temperatures rose into 
the 50's and 60's. Vail and Smith were 
empty this year as students took ad- 
vantage of cool weather and clear 
skies to go out instead of keeping 
warm in the lobby as they had done in 
the past. 

Although there weren't as many 
sweats making their way into class- 
rooms this year, the relaxed atmo- 
sphere was there as usual. Jan term 
saw the opening of the new book- 
store as well as the cafeteria crack- 
down on showing I.D.'s. 

Students spent long afternoons 
playing pool in the student center or 
watching the latest soap opera action. 
Some took advantage of the extra 
time by adding on more work hours 
to their schedules. Most students, 
however, used the chance to catch up 
on sleep, spend time with friends, or 
find innovative ways to entertain 
themselves. This was demonstrated 
by students who, still wishing for 

Relaxed cont. 

snow, were seen sliding on stolen cafe trays 
down the slick brown grass of Vail hill. 

The two weeks passed quickly, and stu- 
dents soon returned to the hectic pace of 
spring registration and Step-Sing rehearsals. 
This Jan term was one of changes, yet the 
slow -pace of one class was one that everyone 
missed when the chaos of Spring term began.

From L . S . W . to the American College 
Theatre Festival, The Misanthrope cast is 

In the Spotlight 

The Misanthrope was a 
300 year old comedy 
which explored a 
world of truth matched against 
gossip and falsehood. Lovers 
quarrels, a battle over a beauti- 
ful young woman, the revenge 
of a jealous old maid, the dis- 
closing of confidential letters, 
lawsuits and showdowns led to 
an evening of intricate plots 
and surprise endings. 

Written by Moliere centuries 
ago, the play was still an accu- 
rate portrayal of human nature 
today. It stood the wear of time 
because the characters were 
ones that still existed in the 
modern world. 

The play was a translation of 
Richard Wilbur's, and was di- 
rected by Harold Hunt. Marty 
Higginbotham played Alceste, 
a man so truthful that he could 
not abide with white lies or any 
type of flattery. The woman he 
was in love with, Celimene, 
played by Peggy Barker, was 
the epitome of all he detested. 
The story line centered around 
his fights with the other men 
chasing her and the battle with- 
in him to rid himself of his love 
for her. The supporting cast of 
Jeff Gilliam as Philinte and Me- 
lisha Jones as Eliante provided 
insight into the play and its 

The most memorable per- 
formance was by Bill Sellers 
and Chris Causey as Acaste and 
Clitandre. Their mere appear- 
ance on the stage brought con- 
tinuous laughter from the audi- 
ence. Other supporting 
characters were Daniel Neil, 
Leah Taylor, Greg Patterson, 
Mark Corn, and Paul Johnson. 

The Misanthrope was an entry 
into the American College The- 
atre Festival. The cast traveled 
to Montgomery, where they 
competed with area colleges 
and universities for the chance 
to travel to Washington D.C. 
and perform in competition 

there. —Halite Von Hagen

Once again, the theatre depart-

with an outstanding produc- 
tion. Summer and Smoke, written by Ten- 
nessee Williams and directed by recent 
graduate, Marty Higginbotham, was a 
hit across campus. Dealing with a com- 
mon William's theme, the play explored 
the struggle of Alma Winemiller, played 
by Leah Taylor, as she tried to control 
her love for John Buchanan, Jr., played 

by Jeff Gilliam. 

Taylor and Gilliam gave inspiring per-

The Experience Shows 

The Theatre Department closed 
its season with a hilarious rendi- 
tion of Oscar Wilde's classic, 
The Importance of Being Earnest. This 
timeless spoof on the art of telling white 
lies kept the audience geared for the next 
twist of fate throughout the perfor- 

Set in England in 1885, the plot traced 
the antics of Jack Worthing, played by 
Jeff Gilliam, and his comrade, Algernon 
Moncrieff, played by Marty Higgin- 
botham. The two actors slyly steered 
themselves through a variety of mishaps 
and communication gaps as both as- 

sumed the name of Earnest. Their true 
loves, Gwendolen Fairfax, played by 
Peggy Barker, and Cecily Cardew, 
played by Melisha Jones waded through 
the tangled web of misunderstandings 
to uncover the true "Earnest ". 

Though Algernon's aunt, Lady Au- 
gusta Bracknell played by Leah Taylor, 
tried in the best interest of her daughter, 
Gwendolen, to come between the love 
affairs, the couples were united in a sur- 
prised ending that left the audience won- 
dering what exactly had happened. 

The supporting cast of Nicole Vanoy, 
as Miss Prism, Pauljohnson, as the bum- 

bling Reverend Canon Chasuble, Eddie 
Lightsey as Lane Algenon's servant, and 
Daniel Neil who played Merriman the 
butler, did an excellent job of portraying 
the minor characters. The shoes of the 
Theatre Department's graduating sen-

The ribbon was cut at 10am on February 19.

dense, the atmosphere settled into one 
of elegance in the massive shopping 
city. Couples ate by the splashing foun- 
tain as shoppers strolled through the 
burgundy and green carpeted corridors 
encircling the mall. 

Shopping was energetically pursued 
as students used the time to explore 
new styles and trends and escape from 
the confinements of campus. With 
new shopping areas sprouting up on 
Greensprings, in addition to the variety 
provided by the Galleria, almost any- 
thing a student needed was only a 
credit card away. 

Although the Galleria only brought 
one major department store, Macy's, 
that was not already in the Birming- 
ham area, the stores that did anchor the 
mall were more updated than their 
counterparts. Parisians's "new genera- 
tion" store was trendy and upbeat in 
every department. Even conventional 
stores such asJC Penney's and Rich's 
received a face lift at the Galleria. 

Shopping was a sport participated in 
by all types of students, and the River-

them to explore it in ways that had 
never been dreamt of before.

choreographers and directors busily pre- 
paring for the upcoming trials. 

The first three weeks of the spring 
semester were spent in practice and re- 
hearsal. Choreography, music, costumes, 
and smiling faces all had to work in 
harmony to produce a winning show. 
An aura of secrecy surrounded the com- 
petition as groups attended band re- 

hearsals, lighting techs, and stage re- 
hearsals. For three long weeks the 
campus pulsated with the life of Step 
Sing. Tired students fell asleep in classes, 
and dedicated performers were seen gy- 
rating in strange ways when they 
thought no one was watching. Yes, Step 
Sing had once again invaded. 

With one week until showtime, this technical re- 
hearsal was important to Sigma Chi as they put 
themselves into perfecting their show "After Hours".

The Unifying Element 

Step Sing was the glitter and glam- 
our of sequin -studded performers 
changing from mere students into 
Broadway dancers through the illusion 
of a spotlight. A clumsy boy learned to 
move with the beat and a plain girl was 
transformed into a long -lashed beauty 
on stage. However, the people that made 
the production possible were the techni- 
cians who worked their magic back- 

LSW was a hectic hub of activity as 

the band and stage crews rehearsed to 
insure that all would run without a flaw. 
The crews concentrated on lighting 
ques, microphone adjustments, and cur- 
tain drops in order that everything 
would run according to plan. 

The band learned the pieces for each 
show, and they were on hand for techni- 
cal and dress rehearsals to provide live 
music for the groups to practice with on 
stage. The band was composed entirely 
of students from the music school, who 

auditioned and were paid for their posi- 

The lighting and stage crew consisted 
of students that worked together to 
make the event a success. Step Sing was 
a blend of talent provided by students

Rehearsal jitters force performers to 

The Cutting Edge 


|he night of dress rehearsal 
was one that had been an- 
ticipated during the three 
weeks of practice. For some, it was a 
time to cut loose and have fun with 
their show before the judges ar- 
rived, while others felt that the pres- 
sure of performing before their 
peers made it their worst show. The 
mood was lightened, however, as 
the Pi Kapps and Sigma Chi's 
switched costumes and the Lambda 
Chi's added a little more (or a little 

less) to their attire. 

Another one of the most enjoy- 
able aspects of Step Sing were the 
performances given at the Fanfare 
and Finale of the show. The Fanfare 
is traditionally performed by the sis- 
ters of Delta Omicron, professional 
music fraternity for women. Delta 
Omicron is not allowed to compete 
in Step Sing, but they shared their 
talent in music and motion as a non- 
competing group with their theme 
of "Success." 

The Finale was performed by the 
brothers of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. 
Phi Mu Alpha contributed to Step 
Sing in a variety of ways as instru- 
mentalists for the band, composers 
of several shows, and in the presen- 
tation of their foot -tapping show, 
"Ain't She Sweet." Directed by 
Greg Parker and choreographed by 
Jeff Hunter the Grande Finale was 
an exciting end to Step Sing 1986.

described night life in the city by sing-

right Tonight." Directed by Clay Chaf- 
fin and choreographed by Tim 
Passmore, the Sigma Chi theme 
showed everyone what can happen 
"after hours." 

Pi Kappa Phi took second place 
with their theme depicting the "Old 
South." Directed by Scott Dyess and 
choreographed by Bruce Stallings, 
they inspired the crowd to relive those 
glorious days by singing: "Dixie," 
"Wild Eyed Southern Boys," "Rocky 

Top," and "The South's Gonna Do It 
Again." Here in the Heart of Dixie the 
Pi Kapp show made all proud of their 

Lambda Chi Alpha won the first

Punk Rockers and medieval relics make London 

A Place Unlike Any Other 


Since the opening of the London 
Centre in 1984, many students 
have made the journey to Europe. 
Those who did not wish to spend an 
entire semester overseas opted to study 
for two hectic weeks during Jan term. 
12-28-85 We arrived in Amsterdam at 
9:00 this morning. The weather is 32° 

Education majors spent time in schools learning 
about the British system of teaching. Vicki Wates 
celebrates her birthday with some of the London stu- 

and snowing. They say January is the 
coldest time to be in England, and now I 
believe it! 

12-29-85 We woke up late today be- 
cause of jet lag, but were able to make it 
to church at St. Paul's. 
12-30-85 Today, we visited two muse- 
ums, the Victoria and Albert and The 
Museum of London. They were both 
filled with suits of armour, old Renais- 
sance weapons, and paintings. 


12-31-85 New Years Eve in London! It 
was wild! We went to Trafalgar Square 
and toured Westminister Abbey. I've 
never seen so many Punk Rockers in one 
place. They won't let us take pictures of 
them unless we pay them. I guess that's 
one way to make a living. 
1-1 Our class went to the national the- 
atre today. We saw the play Mrs. War- 
ren's Profession, but I didn't like it much. I 
can't wait to see Cats. I really enjoy T.S. 


London students had a close-up glimpse of Royalty 
at the Opening of Parliament in November. Prin- 
cess Anne and Queen Elizabeth rode by in a gilded

ing to see it set to music.

es and the tube everywhere. The 
taxi cabs are too expensive to 
travel by. They look like some- 
thing out of an old cobblestone 
cop movie with black paint jobs 
and seats in the back that face 
each other. I can just see a pile 
of blue-garbed men tumbling 
out of the back! Riding the tube 
is a lot of fun. I petted a fox 
there today. An old man had it 
on a leash. 

1-9 Went to Paris today. I was 
worried about getting there be- 
cause some earlier groups had 
trouble with Air traffic control- 
ler strikes and problems be- 
tween the U.S. and Libya. We 
finally made it after almost miss- 
ing our plane, but no one could 
understand what we wanted 
when we were trying to find a 
hotel. Whenever we ordered 
food, we were never sure what 
we would get! 

1-10 Toured Versailles today. 
We spent two hours at the 
Louvre, but we didn't get to see 
everything. The cokes were 
$1.20 a piece. 

1-15 1 spent the last two weeks 
of my trip traveling all over Eu- 
rope. The people all stare at us. 
Germany and Switzerland were 
incredible. This is an experience 
I wouldn't have missed for any-

When Spring Fever sets in, thoughts turn from books to 

Catchin' Rays 

Greener grass and flying fris- 
bees were signs that Spring 
Fever had infected students. 
Books were thrown out the window, 
tests were forgotten and sunshine was 
the only thing on everyone's mind. 
Hackey-sack and frisbee in the quad 
became an afternoon event. Music 
blaring from C.J. windows accompa- 
nied the impulsive football, soccer, 
and baseball games that sprang up any 

time the sun shone. 

Vail beach was the center of activi- 
ties on sunny days. Few could resist the 
temptation to spend an afternoon in 
the warmth of the summer sunshine. 
C.J. Beach and Ramada Inn pool also 
had their share of sun worshippers. 
The craving for a tan seemed to catch 
all in it's grasp. Putting off that term 
paper and avoiding the library was a 
common occurance. Instead, students 

dusted off their sunglasses and tried to 
stretch Spring Break beyond the allot - 
ed week. 

The spring weather did not bring 
the accustomed season of rain, as a 
drought wrecked havoc on area farm- 
ers, yet it did bring a shower of en- 
gagements. Cupid did not miss his 
mark as the traditional "season of 
love" grew a crop of diamonds.

"S - Day is a lot of fun because you get 
to have healthy competition with your 
friends," Redman said. 

For the second year in a row, Phi Mu 
Fraternity was the overall winner of the 
S-Day events, while also taking first 
place in the women's division. They 
were awarded the S-Day trophy and 75 
dollars. Chi Omega finished second and 
the Ministerial Association took third in 
the women's competition. The Chancel- 
lors, a Cumberland Law School Team, 
won first place in the men's division with 

Team Florida, made up of a group of 
guys from Florida, taking second place, 
while Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity came in 

"The events can get pretty heated 
when everybody's out there competing, 
but it's still a blast," S-Day committee 
member Al Bevill said. 

S-Day actually lasted two days instead 
of the traditional one afternoon. The 
swimming was held instead on Monday. 
Swimmers participated in 50 yard heats 

Polynesian delicacies were featured during the S-

After the opening ceremonies on 
Tuesday, the track and field events were 
kicked off with the running broad jump. 
Some of the other events were the soft- 
ball throw, the three-legged race and the 
mattress race. These "fun" events were 
the most enjoyable, but the best compe- 
tition was in the running. The 440 yard 
relay, 50 yard dash, and 880 yard run 
were some of the hotly contested races. 

The afternoon ended with the sting- 
ing 12-2 victory for the faculty in the 
annual Senior/Faculty Softball match- 
up. No female faculty member partici- 
pated in the game, however crowd par- 
ticipation was excellent on both sides. 
One of the highlights of the game was 
the finesse of President Thomas Corts, 
who belted a triple into center field off 
of Senior pitcher, Lisa Bradfield. 

"Dinner on The Quad" was served 
picnic -style afterwards with such sur- 
prises as steak, fresh fruit, and an ice 
cream bar. Green plastic cups with the S- 
Day parrot printed in gold, were sought 
after almost as much as the steak. S-Day 
'86 was concluded with a dance at the 
Vestavia gym. Scott Johnson, a public 
administration major from Nashville, 
TN was the D.J. for the dance.

As the 

semester comes to a close, anxious students await 

Judgement Day 

The close of the school year 
brought with it the horrors of 
final exam week. Students be- 
gan dreading the ordeal as it started to 
overshadow all normal activities. The 
word "comprehensive" could strike fear 
into the heart of students who faced 
week -long sessions of late -nights with 
no sleep. 

The art of cramming was quickly 
learned by those whose exam scores 
could make or break their semester 
grade. Study groups in Vail lobby or an 
all-nighter at Steak-n-Egg helped some 
students survive a rough exam. 

Finals, however, were not always a 

matter of all work and no play. When 
the tension rose there was always some 
method of diversion, the dorm raids and 
water fights began earlier than usual. 
Anxious attackers swarmed the girls 
dorms the week before exams instead of 
during them. Disguised raiders made 
their appearance at 11:00 the Monday 
night preceding Finals week. 

Fire alarms in Smith signaled their ar- 
rival, as both dorms were overun with 
males. Buckets of water, shaving cream, 
and stolen clothing, followed in the 
wake of invaders as they terrorized the 
dorms. Girls fought back, however, but 
without the usual supply of fire extin- 

guishers, their ammunition was soon ex- 
hausted. The arrival of the Homewood 
police brought some excitement and the 
stragglers were finally cleared out of the 
hallways. The next morning evidence of 
the night's activities could be seen on 
the littered lawns and trashed hallways. 
No more disturbances took place due 
to an effective pinkie patrol, and exams 
proceeded as usual. The late nights and 
wild pranks that accompanied finals 
were an anticipated tradition that re- 
leased tension and were a fitting end to a 
year that had been filled with excite-

space, into chaos.

s the school year came to a

themselves for their final days

filled the thoughts of seniors as plans for 
the future filled their conversations. 

Nursing students were perhaps the 
most deserving of their diplomas. To 
commemorate their incredible effort the 
commencement exercises were held sep-

The Student Govern- 
ment Association was the 
representative government 
of the undergraduate stu- 
dents. It was the task of the 
SGA to coordinate and re- 
present student interests 
and concerns in every as- 
pect of the school. 

There were three 
branches within the SGA, 
with a Student Executive 
Board responsible for 
overseeing its functions. 
The SEB was comprised of 
the President of the SGA, 
the Vice President for Sen- 
ate, the Vice President for 
Student Activities, the 
Chief Justice, Secretary, 
and Treasurer. The SEB 
met periodically with the 
Vice President for Student 
Affairs to discuss and co- 
ordinate its many projects 
and programs. 

The Student Senate 
served as the legislative 
branch of the SGA con- 
cerned with providing a 

voice for students in the 
decision-making process 
of the University. At least 
two Senators from each 
school were represented 
on the Senate and were 
elected in the spring term. 
Various Senate commit- 
tees worked with all areas 
of the University to ensure 
that the rights and privi- 
ledges of students were 
upheld, and the range of 
committee work was as di- 
verse as its members. Sen- 
ate committees were re- 
sponsible for student 
elections, Miss Homecom- 
ing, and scholarships. 

The Student Judiciary 
served as the disciplinary 
body. Chaired by the Chief 
Justice and appointed by 
both the President and 
Chief Justice of the Associ- 
ation, the Judiciary heard 
all traffic appeals, resi- 
dence hall violations, and 
other minor student infrac-

The Student Activities 
Council provided a full 
range of activities and pro- 
grams for undergraduate 
students. The SAC in- 
volved more students in 
carrying out its functions 
than any other student or- 
ganization. A weekly film 
series, both secular and 
contemporary Christian 
concerts, lectures, and 
such traditional events as 
the Welcome Back Party, 
Homecoming, Step Sing, 
College Bowl, and S-Day 
were programs that SAC 

was responsible for pro- 

Campus Ministries, as a

provide students with such 
programs as the Fall em-

ious functions was open to 
any undergraduate on a 
volunteer basis.

President Corts 
spoke to a jour- 
nalism class in a 
press conference during 
fall semester. "I always 
read the student newspa- 
per," he said smiling. 
"Some days I put it down 
and laugh. Some days I put 
it down and am angry. But 
I always put it back down." 
As long as the paper fol- 
lowed the basic guidelines 
of decency and fairness, 
the administration prom- 
ised to leave the Crimson 
alone. The student news- 
paper now had the obliga- 
tion to report progress ob- 
jectively and the freedom 
to question administrative 

The editors followed 
those guidelines and the 
administration kept up 
their end of the bargain — 

including the story cover- 
ing the Crimson business 
manager's indictment on 
charges of embezzling 
$10,000. The front pages 
included stories on the uni- 
versity budget and housing 
problems. The editorial 
pages were filled with 
questions on international 
relations, abortion and the 
Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion. Ricky McKee's car- 
toons became one of the 
most controversial parts of 
the paper. 

A strong foundation 
was laid with the revival of

It's Nothing 
You Expected 

When the Entre Nous 
decided to change their 
style they had no idea what 
they had undertaken. The 
vision was to give the year- 
book more quality and 
make it something the stu- 
dents would want to read. 

The major changes in- 
cluded more copy and 
identification of people 
and events. Campus Minis- 
tries, Academics, and Pag- 
eants were three complete- 
ly new sections added to 
the book. Along with 
these, grey screens, art 
lines, Formatt type, and 
creative use of spot color 
were also utilized. 

The year began as the 
editor and assistant editor 
arrived at school and 
found they had no faculty 
advisor. Somewhat bewil- 

Kristin Hawkins, a freshman 
management major, uses her 
interview with Mark Fuller to finish

views and wrote copy for many dif- 
ferent sections on the book. 

dered, they talked with 
Dean Cox and Dean Tray- 
lor but still had little feed- 
back. Finally, after plead- 
ing for an advisor, who 
was a necessity for impor- 
tant things such as signing 
purchase orders and order- 
ing a telephone, Dr. Jon 
Clemmensen agreed to 
help out. 

Tracing a photo of Hal- 
ley's comet became amus- 
ing when the editor was 
told by the Birmingham 
News to call an amateur 
photographer in North 
Carolina. She placed the 
call only to find the as- 
tronomer was shooting the 
comet in Australia! Luck- 
ily, the Birmingham Astro- 
nomical Society found a 
local photographer that 
provided an excellent shot. 

With the devotion of 
hard-working staff the fi- 
nal deadline was complet- 
ed in late May, but only 
after spending a marathon 
weekend at the representa- 
tive's home in Tuscaloosa. 
33 out of 48 hours were 
spent designing, writing, 
typing, and alphabetizing 
to ensure a first-rate publi- 
cation. The staff felt that 
they accomplished with 
much success what was 
only a dream last summer. 

The 1986 edition was 
sent to ASPA, CSPA, and 
NSPA to be judged and 
critiqued. It was also cho- 
sen as Herff Jones national 
sales sample.

We Deliver 

Alpha Phi Omega 
is a national ser- 
\ ice fraternity, 
based on a committment 
to the three "C's" of ser- 
vice: a service to the col- 
lege, a service to the com- 
munity, and a service to 
the country. Along with 
the bookstore that was im- 
mediately associated with 
APO, members participat- 
ed in many more services 
that some times went un- 
noticed. Brothers partici- 
pated in blood drives and 
worked with Boy's and 
Girl's Ranches, as well as 
ushered for campus events, 
showed campus movies 
and sponsored SU, the 
campus mascot. 

Mike Carver, member 
of APO, said that members 
of the fraternity "pledge 
for fellowship yet are inter- 
ested in more than just per- 
sonal needs." Most mem- 
bers worked two — three 
hours each week at the 
Group Home of Baptist 
Medical Center Princeton. 

Alpha Phi Omega is a 
group of men who felt that 
together they could more 
easily meet needs of peo- 
ple. Yet, APO is a social 
fraternity also. They had 
parties and enjoyed a so- 
cial schedule comparable 
to other social fraternities. 

The spring actives in- 
cluded: Kevin Purta, presi- 
dent; Landon Hundley, 
first vice president; Ron 
Sanders, second vice presi- 
dent; Tommy Wilkinson, 
third vice president; Pres- 
ton Weed, treasurer; Gavin 
Norris, secretary; Won 
Kim; John Ellison; Mike 
Carver; Wayne Patterson, 
and Buddy Sledge. 

The spring pledges in- 
cluded: David Pate, Mike 
Manning, Bo Barnet, Jason 
Fowler, Rod Lepord, Allan 
Jones, and Andy Withrow.

Whether it was wrestling with 
inner city kids from Fellowship 
of the Carpenter or building up a 
sweat in the competition of in- 
tramural sports, the Ministerial 
Association was always out to 
let people know what kept their 
organization ticking. 

It was Jesus Christ who 
prompted them to promote 
Christian fellowship, encourage- 
ment and to secure a place of 
service in Christian ministry for 
those who were interested. The 
world and its needs were at the 
heart of this association. They 
tried to help meet a portion of 
those needs by sponsoring a 
booth during Campus Minis- 
tries Fall Carnival. Also, this year 
they had the priviledge of work- 
ing with the sisters of Chi-Ome- 
ga in a bake sale to raise money 
for World Hunger. 

Not overlooking the needs 
right at their front door, they 
reached out to the Birmingham 
community by involving them- 
selves with the Baptist Center 
(Fellowship of the Carpenter) 
which was an inner city mission 
sponsored by the Birmingham 
Baptist Association. The Beth- 
any Home, a home for abused 

wives was another place of ser- 
vice they were involved in. Once 
a month they ministered to la- 
dies through devotions, songs, 
and open hearts. 

Even closer to home, campus 
involvement in intramural sports 
as well as Step-Sing were activi- 
ties that the members of the 
Ministerial Association enjoy 
participating in. 

This year's Step-Sing theme, 
"He Holds The Keys," captured 
the audience as well as the 
judges. The show won second 
place in the mixed division. Be- 
sides ministering through song 
and rhythms a lectureship was 
sponsored during the fall for the 
student body. Dr. Glen Iglehart 
from the New York Baptist As- 
sociation was the speaker. 

The most profitable ministry 
was the H-Day program. This 
program allowed young men, 
who felt the Lord leading them 
into a Christian vocation, to fill 
pulpits in associations all over 
Alabama. This not only benefit- 
ed the church, it gave students 
first hand experience in prepar- 
ing and presenting the Word of 
God to a congregation.

God's beauty shines through this 
happy, carefree child from the

As always, outside games and activities are a 
strong part of backyard bible clubs. A 
backyard game of volleyball often provides 
time to share Christ. 

One of the most important parts 
of mission trips is the bible sto- 
ry. Here, several M.A.'s make story 
time fun also. 

The M.A.'s had an excellent turn 
out for their Spring Break trip 
at Fellowship of the Carpenter.

lunch in a cave, took boat 
rules in the floating gar-

locals incessantly tried to 
sell their items, always 
promising, "For you,

When Sunday arrived it 
was time to depart for Sal- 
tillo. The city was located 
in a flat valley between two 
mountain ranges. The 
weather ranged from win- 
ter cold to pleasantly 
warm. The region was dry 
and arid, but the city was 
amply supplied with water 
from an underground 
spring. The group was as- 

signed to live with families 
in various parts of the city. 
The school where they 
studied consisted of twelve 
classrooms, a bookstore, 
and a snack bar. The 
schedules were structured 
with time to get to know 
the Mexican people and 
the city. Classes began at 
9:00am and ended at 
1:00pm. After eating lunch, 
the traditional siesta was 
observed. At 3:00 the stu- 
dents returned for an hour 
to practice speaking Span- 
ish with personal tutors. 
The school had activities, 
such as a pizza party, a trip 
to nearby caves, a dance, 
and a pinata party. Many 
of the nights were spent 
seeing movies, going danc- 
ing, spending time with 
newly made friends, or on 
occasion, studying.

High Achievement 

I was just sitting there in 
class and they (Mark Ran- 
dall and Louellen Brown) 
came in and started telling 
what Phi Kappa Phi was all 
about/' said Gina Wile- 
mon, senior sociology ma- 
jor, when asked about be- 
ing inducted into the 
selective honor society. 
Mark Randall and Louel- 
len Brown were members 
of Phi Kappa Phi who 
went to classes to present 
the honor of membership 
to the fraternity. 

"My advisor told me 
that I was under consider- 
ation, so I was hopeful. 
They gave me an envelope 
with forms to fill out and 
then pinned me. It is a 
great honor and I'm just 
proud to be a member." 
Gina actually qualified as a 
Junior with a 3.8 GPA, yet 
merely lacked enough 
credit hours to be eligible 
because of transferring. 

The purpose of the Na- 


tional Honor Society of 
Phi Kappa Phi was the rec- 
ognition and encourage- 
ment of superior scholar- 
ship in all academic 
disciplines. Only 10% of 
the senior class, sixty stu- 
dents, were chosen with 
the option to decline. 
GPA's for juniors were at 
least 3.8, while seniors had 
to keep a 3.5. 

The Phi Kappa Phi Lec- 
ture Series was sponsored 
by the Society also, in coo- 
peration with the Honors 
Program. Areas in history, 
politics, and literature, 
among others, were topics 
of lectures in the series. 
This gave opportunity for 
outstanding scholars and 
lecturers to encourage the 
reach for excellence. The 
motto "Let the love of 
learning rule mankind" 
was revealed through the 
lectures and also in the 
honoring of the students 
who were most deserving. 

Jim Nabers, senior biol- 
ogy major, commented, 
"One day I saw two people 
come in. I did not know it 
was me. I was surprised 
and honored. They said, 
after pinning me, 'These 
are the colors of Phi 
Kappa Phi, wear them with 

The annual banquet was 
held April 4. Candidates, 
members, and faculty 
members were all invited. 
President Corts introduced 
the speaker, Dr. O. Suthern 
Sims, who spoke on, "Les- 
sons learned on the way to 
the office: Let's talk about 
leadership one more time." 

Faculty officers were: 
Dr. William Geer, presi- 
dent; Lee Ketchum, presi- 
dent-elect; Dr. Stanley Su- 
sina, secretary; Dr. Ellen 
McLaughlin, treasurer; and 
Mr. William Nunnelly,

Delta Omicron, a pro- 
fessional music fraternit\. 
fostered fellowship of 
women in music through- 
out their college career. 
They presented a Christ- 
mas concert, a spring con- 
cert, performed the Fan- 
fare for Step-Sing, and 
provided special activities 
which benefited the school 
of music and the commu- 
nity at large. 

The pink and gray jer- 
seys of the singing sister- 
hood were evident in more 
than just John Buchanan 
Hall as Delta Omicron be- 
came involved in all as- 
pects of student life. From 
a booth at Fall Carnival, to 
singing during Hanging of 
the Green, the sisters of 
Delta Omicron were a vital 
part of campus affairs. 

Although this organiza- 
tion was only for music 
majors and minors, presi- 
dent Laura Harbison re- 
marked, "We try to create 
a real sisterhood among

Singing His Praise 

While most students 
spent their Spring Break 
on the beach or at home, 
members of two music en- 
sembles spent their break 
on tour. The A Capella 
Choir, under the direction 
of Dr. Gene Black, visited 
the nation's capitol, sing- 
ing in churches and histori- 
cal places such as the 
White House and the Na- 
tional Cathedral. 

At the same time the 
Samford Band was also 
touring Washington, D.C. 
The band members spent 
the week leading worship 
services in several churches 
and they also spent three 
days touring the capitol. 

Both ensembles gave 
spring concerts. The AC 
Choir gave its Homecom- 
ing concert in the Concert 
Hall at the conclusion of 
their spring tour. The SU 
Band gave its concert dur- 
ing a convocation. The 
band spent the week after 
graduation on another tour 
to Florida. 

The AC Choir also vis- 
ited Korea last summer. 
They sang at such places as 
the Far East Broadcasting 
Company and were fol- 
lowed by multitudes of 
children wherever they 
went. The members were 
constantly shaking hands 
and signing autographs.

Chuck Owens, Bill Cleveland, and

Lambda Chi Alpha water slide. The 
brothers set up the slide in their yard 
during Fraternity Rush week. 




Once Squeal Night was over, 
and Fraternity bids had been 
given out, a semester and a 
half of pledgeship began. As pledges set 
out on their quest to be initiated, they 
learned the meanings of words such as 
creed, philanthropy, chapter, and Na- 
tionals. Pledge tests, pledge projects, 
pledge class philanthropies and the 
choice of a Pledge Class Sweetheart all 
became a daily part of life for a pledge or 

Parties, mixers, Formals, Semi-For- 
mals, and Pledge Bashes all added up to 
a busy semester for those individuals 
who opted for Greek life. Pledges chose 
big brothers and big sisters who helped 
them through the pledging process. So- 
rorities all had their own methods for 
assigning big sisters. Some had scaven- 
ger hunts in which the pledges fol- 
lowed a series of clues to find their

big sister at the end while others held 
special ceremonies in order to claim 
their big sisters. 

Booths were seen periodically set 
up in the Student Center as pledge 
classes tried to raise money for their 
projects. Phi Mu pledges sold bal- 
loons, warm fuzzies were sold by the 
Zeta Tau Alpha class, Chi Omega 
pledges sold mistletoe at Christmas 
and the Delta Zeta pledges held 
make-up clinics and distributed Lady 
Love cosmetics. 

Pledges got their first taste of col- 
lege parties and mixers as they tried to 
participate in every aspect of Greek 
life, while at the same time maintain- 
ing their GPA in order to be initiated. 

Pledges were an important ingredi- 
ent to any sorority or fraternity. They 
supported their chapter in Step- Sing, 
Intramurals, and Greek Week. 

Yet, for any pledge the most excit- 
ing part of pledgeship was initiation 
week. As the secrets of their group 
were revealed to them and they were 
installed as a brother or sister the 
months of pledging all became

Derby Days, an activity 
sponsored by Sigma Chi 
chapters across the na- 
tion, made its debut the first week 
in October. Three days of activi- 
ties, culminating with an open 
band party, featured competition 
between the five campus sororities. 
Events began on Wednesday 
with the Derby Snatch to arouse 
interest in the competitions. Sigma 
Chi's all wore black derbys and 
throughout the day they were 
chased by girls trying to swipe 
them. Classrooms and buildings 
were neutral territory, so many a 
Sigma Chi was seen sneaking out 
back doors and racing from one 
building to the next trying not to 
lose their precious headgear. The 
biggest money -raising event con- 
sisted of jars marked with each so- 
rority's Greek letters. The more 
change given, the more points were 
added to that group's total; and for 
each dollar bill donated, points 
were deducted. Heated competi- 
tion arose as members wrote 
checks for change to counteract 
those written for cash. The money 
collected was given to Sigma Chi's 
national philanthropy, the Wallace 
Village for Children. 

Thursday featured the Derby 
Darlin' and Mr. Legs competition. 
The group's representatives that 
had the most pennies in their jar 
received the honor. Delta Zeta, 
Priscilla Davies was Derby Darlin', 
and Sigma Chi, Larry Yarborough 
was Mr. Legs.

The activities ended with a Band 
Party at the Homewood Armory 
featuring Ruckus. Alpha Delta Pi 
was awarded the first place trophy, 
Delta Zeta took second place, 
while Zeta Tau Alpha finished 
third. Sigma Chi president, Ron 
Haskamp commented, "I feel that 
Derby Day went great. Next year, 
with another excellent chairman 
like Tim and the support of the 
sororities, it will continue to be a 
fun tradition of the Greek System."

DELTA ZETA . . . just the 
mere mention of the 
name brought images of 
friends, activities, commitments 
and sisterhood. Friends . . . like sis- 
ters, were held together in a group 
which united athlete with beauty 
queen, scholar with party-goer, and 
quiet girl with outgoing woman. 
All were brought together to bask 
in the warmth of lifetime friend- 
ships found in Delta Zeta. 

Since Delta Zeta's founding on 
October 24, 1902, the Kilarney 
Rose, Golden Lamp, and pink and 
green colors have been symbols of 
her search for excellence. Here at 
Samford the leadership of the Al- 
pha Pi Chapter was held by Sharon

Membership, Kara Pless — Vice 
President of Pledge Education,

Delta Zeta was active in all areas 
of campus life. Involvement in stu- 
dent government, placing second 
in Derby Days, participating in 
Step Sing, Greek Week, College 
Bowl and intramurals all added up 
to a busy schedule for a Delta Zeta 
pledge or sister. 

Philanthropic activities included 
the Independent Living Center and 
Telephone Pioneers. This related 
to the Delta Zeta National Phi- 
lanthrophy which was the Galludet 
College for the Deaf and Hearing 

Delta Zeta's also had a full so- 
cial calendar. In the fall they held 
their Tickled Pink and Green 
Pledge Bash and the Diamond Ju- 
bilee Christmas Semi -formal. Sec- 
ond semester brought a Spring 
Formal along with various mixers 
and theme parties.

Alpha Delta Pi, the first se-

women and the nation's 
oldest sorority, was founded at 
Wesleyan College in 1851. It was 
originally known as Alpha Delta 
Phi, but was later changed to it's 
present name. The Kappa chapter 
was founded on campus in 1910. 
The lion, diamond, and the Wood- 
land Violet symbolized the chap- 
ter; and the colors azure blue and 
white represented loyalty and 
friendship. Campus involvement 
was as strong as ever as ADP: con-

of Phi Mu was founded at 
Howard College on Octo-

started at Wesleyan College in Ma- 
con, Georgia on March 4, 1852. 

The bright pink and contrasting 
maroon of Phi Mu's jerseys helped 
them stand out from the crowd. 
Their flower was the carnation and 
their mascots were nationally, the 
lion, and locally the ladybug. 

Phi Mu was active here on cam- 
pus and in the surrounding Bir- 
mingham community. Their phi- 
lanthrophy was HOPE: Health

was 1985 Greek Goddess as well as 
being a Homecoming attendant 
alongside sister Dawn Cantrell. 

Their social functions included 
the annual Pledge Bash, Christmas

Sigma Chi Fraternity was 
founded at Miami Univer- 
sity in Oxford, Ohio on 
June 28, 1855. The confidence of 
the founders of Sigma Chi was 
based upon the belief that the prin- 
cipals which they sought were im- 
perfectly realized in the organiza- 
tions by which they were 
surrounded. Sigma Chi emphasizes 
development of individual charac- 
ter, academic excellence and the 
spirit of brotherhood among its 
more that 178,000 undergraduate 
and alumni members. Moreover, 
Sigma Chi has a firm policy against 
hazing and encourages pledge pro- 
grams based on personal develop- 
ment and growth. 

The Pi Chapter upholds the spir- 
it of Sigma Chi. The symbols of 
Sigma Chi, a white carnation along 
with the colors blue and gold, have 
become an important trademark in 
our Greek System. 

Their social functions included 
the Fall Classic Party and Derby 
Days, a new addition to this year's 
Greek events that featured sorority

228/Pi Kappa Alpha 


Pi Kappa Alpha was found- 
ed on March 1, 1868 at the 
University of Virginia by 
six college men. From this humble 
beginning, their fraternity grew to 
become an international one, with 
chapters throughtout the United 
States and Canada. The colors of 
garnet and old gold exhibited their 
courage, generosity, integrity and 
elevation of mind. 

The Alpha Pi Chapter was estab- 
lished on the Howard College cam- 
pus 75 years ago. In its many years, 
this chapter has never been inac- 
tive. Over this time, the Pikes have 
been an integral part of Samford 
University. Four out of five mem- 
bers on the Samford University 

Pi Kappa Alphas gather in front of the horse drawn 
buggy on the night of their Pikeboy Preferential 
Party during Formal Rush. 

Board of Trustees were Pikes. One 
of Samford's best varsity athletes, a 
Pike, once coached the Samford 
Bulldog football team. Today, that 
Pike, Bobby Bowden, is the head 
football coach at Florida State Uni- 
versity. Other famous Pikes includ- 
ed the late former President Lyn- 
don Baines Johnson and United 
States Senator Thad Cochran of 

In order that each member 
could continue to be proud of his 
identification with Pi Kappa Al- 
pha, they always strove to maintain 
the lofty ideals which prompted 
their fraternity's establishment and 
which characterized its administra- 
tion for over a century. The broth- 
ers of the Alpha Pi Chapter of Pi 
Kappa Alpha were proud of the 
rich tradition of their past, their 
present accomplishments, and 
their bright future.

Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity 
was nationally founded at 
Longwood College in 
Farmville, Virginia in 1898. Delta

forming the 107th link of 203 chap- 
ters. The white violet and the col- 
ors turquoise, blue and steel gray

Zeta started off the year with an 
undefeated season in intramural 
football. They actively supported 
campus activities such as S-Day, 
Step Sing, Greek Week, College

The national philanthropy of

This past year the sorority gave a 
Halloween party for the clients of 
the Birmingham ARC, which was a 
huge success. 

Zeta Tau Alpha could be found

gma Nu 


Sigma Nu was an honor fra- 
ternity which was founded 
at Virginia Military Insti- 
tute in Lexington, Virginia on Jan- 
uary 1, 1869- The Iota chapter ap- 
peared on the Howard College 
campus in 1869- 

Their flower was the white rose 
and their colors were a combina- 
tion of black, gold and white. 
There are 77 Sigma Nu chapters in 
the United States and Canada that 
are proud to display these symbols 
of their organizations. 

Sigma Nu was a strong fraterni- 
ty based on the high ideals of truth, 
love and honor. The Iota Chapter 
earned the national recognition of 

Bud Thompson, Stacey Morris and Greg Osborne 
take advantage of open dorms to visit Ruth Anne 
Glausier and Ginny Williams, in their Vail fourth floor 

Rock Chapter. They are the sixth 
oldest chapter of Sigma Nu, and 
have been on campus for over one 
hundred years. 

The brothers of the Iota Chapter 
had a long tradition of excellence 
in the classroom as well as on the 
athletic field. In addition to fulfill- 
ing their goals on campus, they 
served a purpose in the community 
through service. 

Sigma Nu maintained a very 
strong sense of brotherhood. They 
were proud of their unity and felt it 
was this that set them apart from 
the rest. With the principles and 
ideals of Sigma Nu high in their 
minds, Iota Chapter men were ever 
striving to further enrich their lives. 
Iota was their home on campus — 
their place of learning the characa- 
teristics of Brotherhood. 

The Iota Chapter was led by: 
Will Harvey, Commander; Jeff 
Black, Lieutenant Commander; 
Charles Tourney, Recorder; and 
Peter Clemens, Treasurer. 


The Alpha Eta chapter of Pi 
Kappa Phi was founded 
on the Howard College 
campus in 1901. The red rose, 
along with the gold and white col- 
ors of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity has 
made an impact here for many 

With brothers involved in 
church work, the civil rights move- 
ment and all areas of campus life Pi 
Kappa Phi earned its reputation for 
being one of the top fraternities on 
campus. One of the things that 
helped to keep them on top were 
their hardworking leaders who 
kept coming up with new ideas to 
keep them moving. 

These men were: Joel Samuels — 
Archon, Tommy Fuller— Vice Ar- 
chon, Barry Harwell— Treasurer, 
Scott Lovelady— Secretary, Bruce 
Stallings— Warden, and Tolbert 
Davis — Chaplain. 

. . . "Yessir" . . . "Oh is it?". . . 
'What's your hobby?" . . . "Oh, did 
ye?" . . . 

Just a bunch of good ol' boys 
from good ol' places — that's the 
foundation upon which the Pi 
Kappa Phi fraternity has been 
built. Being intramural champions 
for five years, winning Step Sing 
Sweepstakes more than any other 
group and having one of the top 
five chapters in the national organi- 
zation definitely made the Alpha 
Eta chapter one that upheld the 
ideals of its organization. 

From Childersburg, Alabama to 
Aireguipa, Peru they gathered from 
near and far to make a group of 
very diverse men. Singers, dancers, 
instrumentalists, scholars and ath- 
letes — that's what they were all 
about — that's Pi Kappa Phi. 

Stuart Mallory, a Samford graduate, David Friday, 
Bruce Stallings, and Don Chairman give off that 
special Pi Kappa Phi essence as they take a break 
during their Formal Preferential party.

Chi Omega was founded on 
April 5, 1895 and the Zeta 
Zeta Chapter was installed 
at Samford University on Septem- 
ber 28, 1963. Nationally known as 
the largest sorority, one out of ev- 
ery ten women were proud to wear 
the cardinal red and straw gold that 
separated Chi Omega's from the 
rest. Chi O was the second most 
financially stable organization in 
the United States and was the only 
sorority to have its magazine in the 
Library of Congress. 

It was always the policy of Chi 
Omega to encourage support of lo- 
cal projects rather than to have a 
national philanthropy. It was the 
philosophy of Chi Omega that the 

Chi Omega's find time to take a break from the 
action during their "Lovin' Every Minute of It" 

local needs could best be met by 
those that knew them best. The 
Zeta Zeta local philanthropies in- 
cluded Cystic Fibrosis, Special 
Olympics, and the Birmingham 
Children's Hospital. 

The officers of the Zeta Zeta 
Chapter were Lisa Compton — 
President, Jane Ann Scates — Vice- 
President, Lettye Gonzalez — Secre- 
tary, Danna Penn — Treasurer, 
Allison Allgood — Personnel Chair- 
man, and Cindy Herring — Pledge 

Chi Omega friendship is worth 

more than gold. 
It cannot be bought; it cannot 

be sold, 
You can't find it by dreaming.

Lambda Chi Alpha had 214 
chapters and 13 colonies nation- 
wide. Each local chapter choose its 
own philanthropy and worked dili- 
gently to uphold the standards of 
its national organization. Lambda 
Chi's were active on campus in the 
Student Government Association 
and other leadership positions. 

Their social functions included 
Rush parties, a Caveman Party, the 
Halloween Supressed Desire Party, 
and the Annual House Party in 
Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

r e are not going to win 
/ every time out, but 
' that's what we're 
shooting for— to be the best." This com- 
ment, from Athletic Director Paul Diet- 
zel, summed up the feelings of the ath- 
letes involved in the new collegiate 
athletic program. Whether the sport was 
football, basketball, soccer, golf, volley- 
ball, tennis, cross country, track, or base- 
ball, the men and women who were in- 
volved in the sports scene faced the 
challenge of beginning a program and 
having the desire to meet those chal- 
lenges head on. 

In the words of Coach Kim Alsop, "I 
don't care how many national cham- 
pionships a coach has won. If he has not 
prepared young men to be a positive 
force in society, he has failed." The at- 
mosphere surrounding the student ath- 
lete did just that, for the athlete who also 
excelled in the classroom could feel the 
sense of accomplishment that only high 
goals reached could bring. 

With the exception of some sports, 

the athletic program was new and faced 
hardships that new programs often en- 
counter. The words "college football" 
had not been heard on campus for about 
11 years. After a reinstatement of foot- 
ball in February, 1984, by the Executive 
Committee of the Board of Trustees, 
these words were brought to life with all 
of the excitement, challenge, and com- 
petition of intercollegiate football. 

The 1984 Bulldogs produced a record 
of 1 -7, but in that single victory, hope for 
the future was conceived. After all, 
wasn't the 38-33 victory over the Univer- 
sity of the South an exciting game that 
showed the young Bulldog's hunger for 
success? Could anyone find hope in a 
1-7 season? Of course! Even Bear Bryant 
had to start somewhere and, after gain- 
ing a talented group of freshmen players, 
1985 seemed destined for success. 

Heading into the 1985 football sea- 
son, after an intensive off-season pro- 
gram and strenuous summer practices, 
the Bulldog football team hoped to 
overcome their youthfulness and inexpe- 

he excited bulldogs rush to the field to 
begin the second half of the Homecoming game 
against Maryville College of Maryville, TN. 



Character cont. 

rience with dog-like determination, 
overwhelming spirit, and a driving desire 
to prove themselves. 

The first game of 1985 pitted the Bull- 
dogs against the University of the South, 
a team bent on revenge after experienc- 
ing a loss the previous year. The Bull- 
dogs felt that revenge as they fell, 28-10. 

For five more consecutive games, the 
Bulldog team, Coach Alsop, and the as- 
sistant coaches fell short of producing a 
victorious game plan for the squad. They 
lost to Hampden -Sydney, 27-14, in their 
first home game. On the road again, they 
travelled to Arkansas -Monticello and 
Emory and Henry where they felt the 
sting of defeat by scores of 35-16 and 
48-32 Back at home, the Bulldogs were 
outscored by Rhodes 19-9 and Millsaps 
35-7. Despite six consecutive defeats, the 
players never lacked the spirit and drive 
that the season began with. Much of this 
could be attributed to the character of 

(prepares to hike the ball to quarterback Scotty 

the athletes themselves, but mostly to 
the optimism of their coach. 

Coach Alsop's ability to motivate his 
players was outstanding as they showed 
positive belief in their ability as a team. 
Students could view the team working 
on the practice fields at all hours, even 
into the night, and wonder at their deter- 
mination. One student stated, "I can't 
believe those guys keep going at it after 
losing six straight games. It sort of 
makes you admire them." Keep going at 
it they did. and all of their hard work paid 
off as they travelled to Maryville, Ten- 

Against a tough fighting Scot's team, 
Samford travelled back to Birmingham 
with a 35 - 29 win under their belts and an 
overwhelming desire to prove their abili- 
ty in front of the home crowd. The Bull- 
dogs did prove themselves by defeating 
Loras, a team from Dubuque, Iowa, by a 
score of 23-7. The game ended in a 


fans but could not drench their spirits.

Character cont . 

Spectators celebrated under umbrellas 
or bare-headed as the final seconds 
ticked away and players converged on 
the field for traditional prayer and hand - 
shakes. The last game of the season was 
played against a very strong Central Flor- 
ida Team that defeated the Bulldogs 

Although the final defeat of the sea- 
son was somewhat of a let down, it re- 
vealed the signs of an improving team. 

This football tradition, seemingly at 
its beginning, actually began in 1902 
when Howard College defeated Marion 

in its first football game. Several 
coaches, including Billy Bancroft, Bob- 
by Bowden, Wayne Grubbs, and John 
Armstrong started and continued the 
growth until football was dropped from 
the athletic program. 

Will the football program ever grow 
to the competitive heights of other na- 
tionally competitive teams? No one can 
say that for sure, but fans and players 
alike can only view the 1985 season as a 
building block to greater successes.

^^his year Coach Mel Hakinson 
took time out of a busy sched - 

» ule to talk about his Bulldog 
basketball team. He had some interest- 
ing things to say about their record and 
reasons for it, the spirit of his team, stu- 
dent support, recruiting, and Bulldog's 
chances at a conference title. Here are 
some of his comments on each. 

On the record and reasons for it . . . 
"Injuries have really hurt our team this 
season, and now that we're completely 
healthy, we've won the last three games 
in a row." At the beginning of the season 
the team was plagued by injuries to elev- 
en players. When the team got com- 
pletely healthy, the season did a dramat- 
ic turn around and the Bulldogs won 3 
games in a row, two against tough Mer- 
cer and Georgia Southern teams. The 
Bulldogs were then in the inevitable po- 
sition of being ranked #1 in the Trans - 
American Conference and in the race for 
a conference title. 

On the spirit of his team . . . "The 
theme of our team is Together We're 
Better." With the loss of Craig Beard, 
outstanding basketball player, last year 
to graduation, the Bulldog team knew 
that they had to rally together. Craig was 
drafted by the Chicago Bears and Sam- 
ford said goodbye to an exciting player 
but said hello to a team that plays to- 
gether like a family. The theme of prac- 
tice was evidenced in every game played. 

On student support . . . "The percent- 
age of students who come to our games 
is very good, with only 1100 on campus 
students, we have an average of 800 stu- 
dents at the games." Student support for 
the basketball team was a tradition that 
started a few years back and has contin- 
ued to grow with each ensuing season. 
Students joined in with the cheerleaders 
to back the Bulldogs as they pursued 
each victory. And support by the student 
body was important in every sport. 

On recruiting . . . "Most of our re- 

ulldog defense member pulls a rebound while being 
surrounded by members of the Tennessee State of-

slams home two points for the Bulldogs in the game

success cont. 

cruiting is done out of the Southeast, 
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Ten- 
nessee. Last yeat's recruiting class was 
one of the best in the school's history. 
We had some early recruits that looked 
very promising in Stanley Wormly from 
Jones Valley High School and Benny 
Carter from Wenonah High School. 
Two freshmen who helped the team out 
a lot were Kenny Hutchenson from Tus- 
kegee and Joey Coe from Celina, Ten- 
nessee. With these promising athletes 
and consistently respectable recruiting 
seasons, basketball promised to progres- 
sively improve in the next few years. 

On chances at a conference title . . . 
"Right now, we're in a position to win 
the conference." With a # 1 ranking in 
the Trans -American Conference and a 
beginning of a streak of victories under 
their belts, the basketball team appeared

I occer is the unknow.. 
made up of the very dedi- 
cated who don't get the rec- 
ognition they deserve, they are very 
physical athletes." This quote is from 
John Lentine, soccer Coach. 

The soccer program was another new 
athletic program at the university. Head 
Coach John Lentine was a law student at 
Cumberland School of Law, and his assi- 
tant, Kip Bennet was a former player 
turned coach who was finishing his edu- 

The team finished the season with a 2- 
9-1 record, with two wins over Shorter 
College and tying Tennessee Tech. 
Coach Lentine gave a growing program, 
an inadequate coaching staff, and poor 
facilities as reasons for the squad's losing 
record. Every growing team will have 
problems in the beginning and a full 
time coach would enormously help the 

Coach Lentine sited the fact that soc- 
cer facilities were not adequate com- 
pared with other universities and enthu- 
siasm for the team wasn't shown in full 
force. These things combined contribut- 
ed to the losing record of the Bulldog 
soccer team, but some up -lifting insights 
about the squad lent a more promising 


success cont. 

Coach Lentine also stated, "If you 
want to see a physical game with superb 
athletes, come watch soccer." This is es- 
pecially true about the hard -playing 
Bulldogs. Although faced with poor fa- 
cilities and adverse conditions they 
pulled themselves together to exper- 
ience some victories for themselves. 

The team had no true leaders, but had 
people who peaked at different times to 
provide leadership when the occasion 
arose. The team showed their ability to 
work together and although they had 
some problems at the beginning, they 
quickly came to exhibit the fact that to 
them, team togetherness was more im- 
portant than individuality. 

Soccer was a growing sport, not only 
at Samford, but all over the state. Stu- 
dents and athletic fans were only begin- 
ning to realize that soccer was a new, 
dynamic sport and the Bulldogs exhibit -

ed this feeling. They measured up well to 
other teams they competed against. 

When Coach Lentine was asked to 
comment on how well the scrappy team 
measured up to their competition, his 
reply was, "their measure of heart and 
spirit surpassed their competition many 
times, our players have as much poten- 
tial as anyone, and with an adequate staff 
and facilities, could play with anyone, 
anywhere." It's this belief, by players and 
staff, that made 1986 an exciting year for 
the team. 

The Bulldog soccer team wanted to 
work their way up to a squad that they 
and their fans and supporters could be 
proud of. And, considering the physical 
work, character, and growth through de- 
feat they displayed this year, a tradi 
of fierce competitiveness was asserti.. 
itself in every aspect of their team.

i) 1985, when asked about the suc- 
cess of the Lady Bulldogs Volley - 
-ball Team against strong Division I 
opponents such as Troy State, Mississip- 
pi State, and Southern Mississippi, 
Coach Martha Davidson assured, "The 
desire is there, but we're not competing 
on their level . . . yet." 

This year's squad showed the aggres- 
siveness and spirit that have been known 
to go hand in hand with the scrappy 
Lady Volleyball team. The team "played 
their hearts out" and what they lacked in 
experience and ability they made up for 
in tenacity and optimism. The team's 
record advanced them a few more steps 
in their goal of competing on the level of 
Division I opponents.

After the loss of seniors and juniors 
Kathy Henry, Liz Cole, Beth Woodall, 
Renee Garner and Virginia Cole, the 
thoughts of so many "green" players 
made hopes for a successful season seem 
dreary. But with players such as Eva Ma- 
rie Thornton, Joette Keller, and Kim 
Duncan, whom Coach Davidson called 
"3 capable players and good hitters" and 
Jan Tcherneshoff, who moved to the po- 
sition of setter this year, the team 
showed few signs of drabness. Every 
game was filled with an exciting air 
which pervaded into the stands. Fans 
steadily increased in number because as 

one student stated, "those little girls a 
gutsy!" The desire and spirit of the team 
made each game exciting. 

Coach Davidson promised that the 
team would "keep on improving" and 
with the addition of scholarship monies, 
this goal could be easily reached. 

With a difficult 1986 schedule which 
included teams such as West Georgia, 
UAB-Huntsville, and a tough Monte - 
vallo team, Coach Davidson promised 
the team will "fight for a better season." 
To echo her sentiments of 1985 the team 
was still "tenacious . . . like Bulldogs 
should be."

xpanding As Competitors 

ihe men's volleyball team came 
within two points of being in 
- the TAC finals last year and 
ended up in fourth place in the confer- 
ence. After a loss of seniors Sandy Hul- 
sey and power- hitter Scott Smith, the 
season looked as if it would be one of 
rebuilding. The team had many sopho- 
more and freshman players and virtually 
the same schedule as last year. 

The team was co- coached by Martha 
Davidson and Rodney "Go Coach Go." 
Although Coach Davidson directed the 
women's volleyball team for two years, 
this was her first to coach the men and 
she named a few standout players. "Da- 

vid Fletcher is a great technician, has 
great discipline, and is a team leader, 
along with Donnie Duvall. Kip Bennett 
is a good, fiery player and a great 

She said that the team had a problem 
with aggressiveness and had to learn that 
it was not "okay to lose." They seemed 
to learn that certain things had to be 
done to win. They realized this need, 
however, and overcame it to go on to 
have a rewarding season.

oth the men's and women's 
track teams were relatively new 
to the athletics program. The 
men's team had the edge because the 
team was older, while the women's team 
was built virtually from the ground up. 
Many of the team members were 
freshmen and became well aware of the 
difference between high school and col- 
lege meets. In high school, many were 
used to being the number one runner, 
while college competition was much 
harder. Some of the runners, however, 
did not compete in high school and for 
them, competition was definately a new 

to home, for some of the students it was 
a good chance to travel and see different 
areas of Alabama and other states. The 
teams traveled to the University of Flor- 
ida, Middle Tennessee State University, 
Emory University in Atlanta, Troy State, 
West Georgia, and Tuskeegee Institute. 
Even though the teams were new and 
inexperienced, they practiced hard daily 
and as recruiting was implemented and 
growth took place, the teams hoped to 
continue improvement.

Raising A Racke 

r. Les Longshore coached 
both the men's and wom- 
an's tennis teams this year. 
Although both teams had fairly good 
season ending records the season at first 
looked bleak. 

Both the men's and women's teams 
had a large number of freshmen. The 
men had three out of six first year players 
while the women had five out of eight 
freshmen. This would lead anyone to 
question the validity of a hope for a 
winning season. Although the seasons 
weren't highly successful, they had many 
highpoints and set a foundation for im- 

provements in the future. 

The teams traveled to many in -state 
colleges such as Birmingham -Southern, 
UAB, North Alabama, Jacksonville 
State, Mobile College, and Auburn - 
Montgomery. They traveled to Florida, 
Georgia, and the TAAC Championships 
in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Team members were recruited local- 
ly, in -state, and out of state with players 
from Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, 
Virginia, and Georgia. Some were 
awarded scholarships.

pains" and great crowd support against a 
larger and favored team.

the season turn out as it did.

The team lost three starters: second 
baseman, David Garrison, third base- 
man, David Phillips, and shortstop, Gary 
Cooper to graduation. They were re- 
placed by David R. Vaughn, David G. 
Vaughn, and Brian Raley. These replace- 
ments made it hard to come together as 
a team, but Bulldog youth and exper- 
ience only improved as players looked to 
off-season practice and next year. 

With a losing season, the team just 
didn't meet the expectations of players, 
coaches and fans. The season looked 
promising after a hard-hitting and de- 
manding fall session but didn't seem to 
pan out. The Bulldogs needed to work 
on consistency and as this was a year of 
growth, that consistency will be evident 
in the future.

Playing the Fields 


ihis was the first year that cheer - 
leading was considered an ac- 
l. credited class for physical edu- 
cation credit. This was only as it should 
have been since the squad practiced 
three times a week, cheered for both the 
basketball and football teams, and par- j 
ticipated in an intense aerobics workout. ; 

Candi Gann was the squad sponsor j 
and Wayne Morris and Susan Corley 
were co- captains. They and the other 
members helped to project a spirit of 
ability and enthusiasm through cheering 
and succeeded in doing so. But, more 
than just at games, cheerleaders project- 
ed this spirit throughout their activities. 

Cheerleaders received no scholar- 
ships. They participated in fund-raising 
to go to summer camp and could not go 

on roadtrips during basketball season 
because of lack of funds. Mike Carver 
said this made the squad feel as though 
they "let the team down by not being 
there, but it can't be helped." These hin- 
drances meant extra work for the squad, 
but even though they experienced these 
setbacks, they never let it show in their 
performance and style. 

The on -going goal for the squad was 
to improve student support for the 
sports teams. The lack of enthusiasm 
could be due to the newness of the pro- 
gram and to the fact that most of the 
teams were in a building stage. Whatever 
the reason, the squad did their best to 
promote school pride.

It All Adds Up 

After high school athletics, many 
students felt the need to partici- 
pate in some kind of physical 
activity on the college level. For some, 
the answer was intramural athletics. In- 
tramural events included football, rac- 
quetball, tennis, pickle ball, bowling, 
badminton, volleyball, softball, basket- 
ball, golf, ping-pong, and activities in 
S-Day. Fans went to intramural competi- 
tions throughout the year to cheer for 
their favorite greek or independent 

For most students, intramural activity 
was a good way to meet people, become 
involved in competition, and to just 
have something to do. Men and women 
came from high school wanting to play 
ball and they had two choices: get out of 
shape or play intramural athletics. Many 
students chose the latter.

Competition was another major fac- 
tor in intramural play. Greek organiza- 
tions, independent teams and teams 
from different schools battled as good 
sportsmen, but competition was intnse. 
Games were just as much fun to watch 
as they were to play. Good-natured rival- 
ries and "bragging rights" were a part of 
the total picture of intramurals. 

In the words of Kristen Hawkins, "in- 
tramurals brought me closer to my 
friends, helped me make new ones, and 
brought everyone together — win or 
lose." It was this feeling of cameraderie, 
the need for exercise and desire for com- 
petition that made intramurals such a 
popular event in campus life.

Editor's Note 

As learned through experience, true friends are found 
when deadlines and pressure are pushed to the limit. The 
'86 book was no exception. Many thanks are due to certain 
people who made this publication possible and added the 
extra flair that made it a success. 

Susan Allen who extended her help in any way possible, 
from making phone calls to labeling nursing mugshots. 

Dr. Charles Russell who helped proof and correct pages 
any time he was needed. 

Randy Claybrook who gave advice, ideas and support 
throughout the year and especially during those 
brainstorming workshops. 

Michael Boy kin who I ended his services of MTV, Apple 
computer, pizza, and layout designs around the clock. 

Gay and Terry Morgan who went beyond their duty of 
sales representative and provided a "home away from 
home. " They deserve a special thanks for their dedication 
and concern. 

My parents, Charles and Anne Padgett, who reluctantly 
accepted my absence from home due to deadlines and 
completion of the book. 

Thank You to all, 
Cindy Padgett

Manj faculty and alumni gathered for the dedication of the 
physical science building. Brooks Hall. Lacking enough 
donations 10 hi given .1 name, the much used building has re- 
mained without a title for many years. 

Laughter, smiles and tears are all very evident elements of 
graduation ceremonies as seen in these May graduates during 
their exercises on Saturday, the seventeenth. 


Cleaning the desk drawer for summer brings back 
many memories for this student as he stops to 
glance over a piece of paper he'd almost forgotten 


Edge of Tomorrow 

Refreshments and congratulations greet seniors 
from family and friends just after the walk across 
a stage that never semed so long. 

The year may have ended 
but the traditions did not, 
neither did the new ideas 
imprinted in our minds. 

From the Challenger to Hal ley's 
comet, from new dorms to budget 
cuts, the 1983-86 year required lit- 
tle extra to make it exciting and 

The year encompassed all the 
traditions of Step Sing and Home- 
coming while adding a new fair to 
S-Day and the bookstore. It saw 
surges in trends from Swatch and 
Coca-Cola to Jams and Reeboks. 

The Athletic Department 
gained a golf team and watched 
the foundations being laid for the 
new Student Activities Center, ad- 
jacent to the gym. Beeson Student 
Center experienced a complete 
make -over of the first floor with a 
new snack bar, additional mail 
boxes, and the beginnings of a stu- 
dent lounge. 

In a constantly changing world, 
we lacked little in keeping up with 
the times.
