Taking time to 
reflect back on the 
past year of your 
life brings back 
many memories. 
Whether these 
memories are 
good, bad, happy 
or sad, all of them 
have a special 
place in our 
hearts. Going off 
to college and 
meeting new 
friends is only part 
of the fun of mak- 
ing memories 
that will last a life- 


memories and 
friends are so very 
special because 
the people you 
meet in college 
are the friends you 
will have forever. 
They are the ones 
you have de- 
pended on during 
rough times and 
will always be your 
friends," said

Spring Break '90 T 
at Daytona BeacLL 

While basking in the sun during 
Spring Break '90, El Dorado 
sophomore Matt Hootman and 
some friends took a few minutes 
to get some pictures of Daytona 
Beach. While they were there, 
Hawiian Tropic hosted a beauty 
contest. " It was really crowded, 
you had to cruse the beach to find 
a parking place." said Hootman.

I remember when Jennifer Dean and I 
had rotation at Wesley in the OR room. 
We were so excited after surgery we 
could not remember where we parked 
the car in the parking garage and spent 
1 minutes looking for it."— Teresa Lynn, 
El Dorado freshman 

"The carziest thing my buddies and I 
have done is sneak up on the top of the 
Hilton Inn in Wichita and drop water bal-

ager caught us and the police came and 
made us stay a night in jail." — Mark 
White, Derby sophomore 

"When our clinical group passed our 
skills test we celebrated by going to Chi 
Chi's and giving our instructor [Mrs. Wick-

Have you 


Have you noticed anything important 
today? Did you notice seasons changing on 
campus? Did you happen to notice the Coke 
machine in the 200 Building actually gave 
change? Have you seen the new faculty 
members, and does anyone have any idea 
where Room 129 has gone? Did you see a 
school play or check out the art gallery? Did 
you happen to notice the Honeybears at the 
football Homecoming game? I bet you did! 
Has anyone noticed $1 .5 million dollars float- 
ing around campus? Did you notice the mail- 
man was reluctant to approach your mailbox 
without your Pell Grants? Did you notice that 
where nurses are now, journalists used to 
reside? Have you taken notice of all the new 
faces in class, or were you relieved to see 
many familiar ones? 

With your life evolving constantly, and so 
many deadlines to meet, take the time to 
notice something that maybe you have over- 
looked. . . Someone who makes things happen, 
someone who makes a difference. . .Begin 
noticing something important. . .

ffih Jones — student 

ou were part of 4,400 
students who worked on campus, 
behind the scenes, in the class- 
room, at ballgames - growing and 
learning every step of the way. 

You began a new way of life by 
making special friends, going diffe- 
rent places, finding new opportuni- 
ties and seeking higher goals. 
These experiences helped shape 
your college life. 

"If you expect to learn anything 
you have to be challenged," said 
Dawn Cantrell, Kiowa freshman. 

You came from near and far but 
shared a common goal — to 
improve yourself. Whether you 
reached this goal through what you 
learned in the classroom or what 
you learned from each other, you 

learned to deal with stress and 
make sacrifices for others. From 
either a new individual you found 
interesting or an old friend, you 
found getting away from home a 
little easier. 

No matter your age or back- 
ground you all had spirit. You 
showed it by cheering at games and 
wearing purple and gold. 

"I think everybody should get 
involved in something, whetherit be 
going out with friends or joining a 
team," said Curtis Sullivan, El 
Dorado sophomore. 

You met new friends and by 
meeting others you got to know 
yourself better.

very positive, you can tell just by watching," said 
Dan Jones, El Dorado freshman. Jones worked and

Accomplishing a sense of unity 

S/\ccompiisning a sense of unity 

Spirit meant many different things. To 
most, spirit was going to ball games and 
cheering for the old purple and gold. To 
others it meant unity in every aspect of 
college life and beyond — not just sports. 

"School spirit is an attitude of coopera- 
tion which manifests itself as a sense of 
unity in a group," said Roger Lewis, instru- 
mental music director. 

"School can be an important period in a 
person's life for developing one's capacity 
to work in groups later in life," continued 

Butler students traditionally have 
shown lots of spirit. 

"Sometime in the 70s someone made 
the comment that the students here only 
do things for themselves. So the college 
brought the bloodmobile to the campus 

and over 400 pints of blood were donated 
that day," said Everett Kohls, dean of 

Students displayed their spirit in vari- 
ous ways. 

"I thought it would be fun and interest- 
ing to be the Grizzly mascot and go to the 
games," said Jason Regier, McPherson 

Wearing the school colors was a popu- 
lar way of showing off Butler to others. 
The instrumental music department 
invested in jackets of purple and gold 
design to be worn by both band and jazz 
studies students at ball games throughout 
the year. 

"A good illustration of spirit is when you 
look at all the people walking around with 
T-Shirts and hats that say Butler County. I 

don't think they wear them because it is 
the finest fashion, I think it is because they 
want people to know Butler is where they 
attend," said Kohls. 

Spirit was experienced in many diffe- 
rent ways making Butler's followers indivi- 
dually diverse. However, when students 
unified into a group most would admit it 
was the group to be in. 

"One thing I admire most about this 
place is we can mess with each other but 
no one can mess with us. We'll bind 
together and win no matter what," said

8 Budgeting Time 

Balancing life causes 


It was 4:00 a.m. The alarm went off, and 
the day began for Kelly Middleton, El Dorado 
sophomore. Middleton delivered The Wichi- 
ta Eagle, spending over two hours a day 
throwing anywhere from 125 to 200 papers. 
Around 6:00 a.m. Kelly returned home to 
catch a few hours of sleep before going to 
classes for the rest of the day. 

Although not everyone got up at four in the 
morning, most students who combined work 
and school had a full schedule. 

Some students worked at school. In the 
workroom student workers sorted mail and 
helped copy materials for teachers and 
administrators. "We do student's mail, on 
campus mail, pretty much whatever people 
bring in." said Pam Schelske, El Dorado 
sophomore. This was made much easier 
because of a new $5,800 postal machine the 
school received. The new Xerox machine, a 
$75,400 investment, also made work easier 
by putting out six to ten thousand copies a 
day, when it was working. 

The majority of students worked off 
campus. Julie Jacobs, Towanda freshman, 
worked at the Two Moon Saloon in Towan- 
da. She waited tables on the weekends, 
working 10-15 hours a week. 

"The worst thing that has happened to me 
is getting bawled out by my boss. I forgot to 
put tax on about four tickets and instead of 
him handling it clamly he used all sorts of 
profanity," said Jacobs. 

Students were not the only ones who tried 
to cram everything into the shortest amount 
of time possible. Dave Kratzer, Lantern 
adviser and English teacher, owned and 
managed a tabloid in Andover, The Andover 
Advocate, with his wife, Mo. Their paper 
came out every Wednesday and caused 
some tremendous stress, since the Lantern 
came out every Thursday. 

"Tuesdays I get up at 6:00 a.m. and come 
to Butler. As soon as I'm done I go to Andov- 
er, work all night, and all through the night, 
then come back to Butler, without stopping 
home." said Kratzer. 

Whether a person got up at 4:00 a.m. or 
12:00 noon, many students had a stressful 

"We do everything! Type worksheets, certify and 
insure mail, everything!" said Candy Mercer, Assis- 
tant Supervisor in the workroom. Candy shows 
student helper Amy Schoffstall, El Dorado sopho- 
more, how to run the new postal machine. Photo by 
Rob Browning 

"It's a little hairy, but as long as we allow 
ourselves enough time we do fine," said Linda 
Skelton, Augusta sophomore. Deadlines always 
cause stress for everyone involved with the Lantern, 
but with the help of Adviser Dave Kratzer, the staff 
, manages to deliver the paper each week. Photo by

Behind the Scenes 9 


Trying circumstances shaped 


The Random House Dictionary 
defines "interesting" as engaging 
the attention or curiosity, and 
"people," the persons of any parti- 
cular group or area. The combina- 
tion of the two equals an interesting 

Every man, woman and child 
alive today has a story to tell. 
Whether others find it interesting or 
not is beyond the point. A person is 
unique and special in his or herown 
way. It doesn't take much to be an 
individual. How can this be? 
Because each person has a special 

niche to fill. Mark Van Beuren, a 
janitor, said that he enjoyed his job. 
A job that basically picks up trash. 
"It's what I like to do. I'm happy with 
my job and my work. I'm probably 
happier than the average person." 
Coming from a far away state or 
country or being part of a large fami- 
ly are things that make a person 
interesting. Jason Gregg came 
from Canada to Butler on a golf 
schlorship. "I love golf and they 
(Butler) gave me a free ride. You 
can't beat that," said Gregg. 

While some are far more fasci- 
nating than others, everyone is 
unique in his or her own way. 

There were many interesting 
individuals that made other 
students around them stand up and 
take notice. Whether by "tooting 
their horn" or by word of mouth, their 
story was told over and over all 
around campus. It could have been 
only a story that lasted a week or 
one that was a continuing saga 
whichever the case, it was

New Kid in Town 

Going to college can be a scary exper- 
ence. Most people are nervous about start- 
ing at a new school. There are new teach- 
ers, different people and strange classes. 
In general an anxious and terrified feeling 
all in one. Imagine getting on a plane one 
morning and leaving your family and 
friends to go to a different country. Sound 
even more scary? 

Sami Samo was born in Banglidash, 
India. He spent seventeen years going to 
public schools and one day he decided to 
make a change. "It was just a feeling I had. 
One minute I loved India, the next I wanted 
to love America." Samo found that his 
destiny was in the states. On March 24, 
1987, Samo boarded a plane that would 
change his life." 

"I'd never flown before," said Samo. 
"Come to think of it, I never really did much 
of anything before." "The experience of 
flying was admittingly terrifying. Upon land- 
ing in Califorina, Samo boarded still 
another flight that took him to Wichita, 
Kansas. "When I landed in Kansas I was 
scared and happy all in one." " I had no 
family, no friends, and a great attitude 
about life." 

Samo soon found his place in the states. 
After taking his student exchange test, he 
was placed in Kansas at The Wichita State 
University. There Samo enrolled in 13 
credit hours with the hopes of someday 
becoming a prominate business man. 

At first Samo struggled in his classes. 
His brief schooling in the English language 

was not enough. Samo enrolled in a basic 
English class and still kept his regular 

"I just couldn't keep up with the rate they 
(instructers) were talking. Everything was 
just to fast." 

Despite his struggle, Samo made it 
through the first year of college with a B 

"I studied quite a bit," said Samo. "In fact 
that's about about all I did do." 

Samo knows that all his studying will pay

sophomore. Samo studies for an upcoming History II

off. He has decided to stay in the states for 
the remainder of his life. "I'll go back to visit 
and my family will come here, but I'm going 
to live in America. I just like it here better," 
said Samo. 

Samo is currently enrolled in six credit 
hours at The Wichita State and eight credit 
hours at Butler.

Kendra Jones, Salina freshman. Jones was manager

Jones receives scholarship despite problems 

Kendra Jones was a normal Sali- 
na South High School student who 
loved sports. She was a good 
student and had many scholarship 
offers for basketball. During her 
senior year she was jogging in gym 
class when her back and neck felt 
numb. She told a friend what had 
happened. Her friend started to 
massage her neck then Jones 
passed out. 

"God must have been with me, 
because along came a man that 
knew CPR. Shortly after that a 
doctor arrived, and no one had 
called a doctor. Soon an ambulance 
showed up, and no one had called 
an ambulance either. The ambu- 
lance picked me up and took me to a 
Salina hospital," said Jones. 

Three days of testing were done 
on Jones, and the doctors found 
nothing. She was sent to Wesley 
Medical Center, in Wichita, for over 

a week of testing. While at Wesley, 
the doctors gave Jones a catheteri- 
zation examination. This is when a

The doctors found that Jones 
was born without one of two of her 
main arteries. Only five people have 
lived in such a situation. The 
doctors had to operate on Jones to 
connect her artery to her heart. It 
took seven days for her to recover. 

She is still unable to play sports 
for fear of an accident happening 
with her heart. 

"If it were up to me, I would still 
play sports, but I am under strict 
orders from my doctor not to do 
anything that may endanger my 
life," said Jones. 

All of Jones' scholarship offers 
had been dropped, except for one.

Friends — the necessary ingredients to happiness 


WANTED: One very caring 
person who would be willing to 
listen, talk, have fun, share secrets, 
trust and just have an all-around 
good time together. Anyone meet- 
ing these requirements is encour- 
aged to send his resume and or 
letter of application to 901 Haverhill 
Road, in care of the Yearbook staff. 

Friendships and sharing have always 
been necessary ingredients in a happy and 
enjoyable life. Many people feel that with- 
out a friend around, their life would not be 

"We have a lot in common and we both 
enjoy doing things together like shopping, 
going for walks, partying and just talking 
with each other," said Robin Dorn and 
Marlene Beitz, Eureka sophomores. 

"A real friend is someone you trust 
with all your soul, who will listen 
when you need them to and will never 
betray you"

bestfriend would be to tell them that 
someone they loved betrayed them"

Jacksonville, Fla sophomore 

"A true friend is someone who 
does not like you superficially. He or 
she likes you for what is "inside" you, 
not what you look like, where you 
come from, or what you have." 

Tara Jensen 
Wichita freshman 

Dorn and Beitz first met their freshmen 
year of high school at volleyball practice. 
They were not friends at first sight by any 
means, in fact they would not even talk. 

Their very first encounter occurred on 
the volleyball court when Dorn hit Beitz with 
the ball. Dorn went over to apologize and 
the two started talking and found that the 
other wasn't so bad after all. Well, the rest 
is history as they say and the girls have 
been friends for six years now. 

"I think we've been friends for so long 
because we're honest with each other and 
we understand how the other feels," said 

Nobody put friendship into perspective 
as well as Bill Reekie, Mulvane freshman, 

"When something bad happens my friends 
and I just usually laugh it off and say $#&! 

While friends sometimes have prob- 
lems, which results in fights, usually good 
friends can eventually overcome the prob- 
lem and find a solution. It takes more than 
just wanting to have a good time and party- 
ing together to be friends. 

"We can trust and confide in one 
another. We never have to worry about the 
other one stabbing me in the back," said 
Beitz about her and Dorn's friendship. 

A good friend can fill the requirements in 
The Grizzly want ad. A true friend is there in 
qood times and bad.

New faces coming from faraway places added spice 


One-hundred and two students came from 
far and wide to further their education and to 
be part of Grizzly pride. Whether they 
traveled from out of state or journeyed from 
across the globe — all were faced with excit- 
ing new challenges and had a chance to strive 
for new goals. 

Making new friends to last a life-time, 
experiencing a different culture and environ- 
ment, and learning to survive on cafeteria or 
microwaved foods, were among the many 
challenges these students faced on a daily 

Butler was a melting pot of 49 students 
from 20 different states, and 53 students from 
16 different countries. Bangladesh boasted 
the most foreign students with 14, while 
Virginia had the most out-of-state students, 
with seven. 

These "foreign" students left behind their 
families, girlfriends, boyfriends, favorite 
hang-outs, and their mom's cooking. They 
left the security home provided to attend 
college hundreds to thousands of miles away. 

Students chose to leave their home towns 

and attend a college in Kansas for a variety of 

"My mom convinced me that if I was going 
to be somebody, then I'd need to go to college. 
So, Butler offered me a football scholarship 
and I accepted," said Willie Cleveland, Palm 
Beach, Fla. sophomore. 

"I chose Butler because it was very inex- 
pensive, and it was near my host family's 
home," said Mohammad Ali Qureshi, Pakis- 
tan sophomore. 

For whatever the reasons, the majority of 
the out-of-staters felt they had made a good 
college choice. Many students said that 
people were very friendly in Kansas and they 
were receiving a solid education. 

"The campus is nice and neat, the people 
are friendly, and the teachers try hard to make 
the students feel comfortable," said Tarifur 
Chowdhury, Bangladesh sophomore. 

For some students, wearing a tank-top one 
day and a ski coat the next was an all together 
new experience. Kansas' forever- changing 
climate was shocking to some, but for others it 
was just a taste of home. 

"People think that it is really cold here, but 
we'd consider it mild to what we often experi- 
ence in Canada," said Jason Gregg, Manitoba 

As semesters came to a close, these "foreig- 
ners'" who brought a little spice to life on 
campus, were considered "just like everyone 
else." The only difference was they would be 
traveling over mountains, valleys and oceans 
to return home when school was finally over. 
For many of these new friends, it would be 
time to say good-bye forever, with only hopes 
of seeing one another again. 

"I met a lot of nice people and made many 
good friends here, and that is what I'll miss 
most about Butler," said Alex Molina, 
Boynton Beach, Fla. sophomore. 

"When school is over and I leave for home, 
I'll miss my teachers and the people with 
whom I made friendships," said Syed Arifur 
Rahman, Bangladesh freshman.

The good news was he had a place to 
live. The bad news was for two weeks the 
house had no bathroom facilities. 

"I lived with three other freshmen foot- 
ball players and we all had to use the bath- 
room at Casey's (a local convenience 
store) for two weeks," said Richard 
Gadwood, Shawnee Mission freshman. 
"One of my roommates just moved out 
and went home after two weeks of school. 
He didn't like the accommodations," 
continued Gadwood. 

Housing was a major problem. 
"Our enrollment has increased show- 
ing an 8.2 percent increase in head count. 
The economic development of the 
community with Pioneer Balloon and 
Texaco Refinery has also affected hous- 
ing," said Neal Hoelting, coordinator o 
admissions and retention. 

Texaco's Turnaround which provided 
maintenance for Texaco's equipmen 
increased El Dorado's population by 1 50( 
and Pioneer Balloon added another 60 
residents. Both companies had their 
personnel in place before school ever 

Joe Hill, Grenola sophomore was 
smart and got his dorm room reserved 
before he left campus after his freshman 

"I like living in the dorm because I didn't 
have to go through the hassle of looking 
for a place," said Hill. 

Some students spent most of their 
summer looking for a place to stay. 

"I didn't find a place to live until Aug. 1 0. 
I looked for two months before I finally 
found an apartment," said Alan Harper, 
Concordia sophomore. 

Living in trailers was one way students 
eased the housing crunch. 

"I didn't have a hard time finding a place 
to live because my roommates' parents 
bought her a trailer house. We intend to 
live there until we graduate," said Libby 
Adkins, Fall River freshman. 

Darren Cusick and Chad Phipps, both 

freshmen from Mulvane also lived in a 

"We live in a three-bedroom trailer out 
by El Dorado High School. It's further 
away from the campus than I would like, 
but other than that I really enjoy it," said 

Neither Cusick or Phipps lived nearly 
as far away as students who traveled daily 
from Andover, Leon, Eureka, Wichita and 
a myriad of other locales as they were 
unable to find housing in town. 

"I live in Western Kansas and received 
a Livestock Judging scholarship and 
Blake Flanders, livestock judging instruc- 
tor, agreed to take care of the housing for 
me. Due to Texaco's turnaround all of the 
housing in El Dorado was full and I 
needed a place as soon as I arrived so he 
got me a place in Towanda," said Shawn 
Pabst, Colby freshman. 

To help alleviate some of the problems 
regarding student housing a plan was 
proposed for a coed dorm. The dorm is 
scheduled to house 110 students and be 
completed in 1990. 

"It will be built with suite-like rooms, 
which means two rooms will share a 
connecting bath. Each room will have 
cable and phone hook-ups. There will 
also be an exercise room and study area. 
This will be the nicest dorm in terms of 
facilities in the state," said Hoelting. 

Some sophomores had an advantage 
over freshmen because they had lived on 
their own for a year and had learned how 
to manage their money, come up with 
systems forthe easiest cleaning and cope 
with living with new people. 

"I learned from last year that I didn't 
want to live with five people in a two- 
bedroom house. It was hard on my GPA 
and my privacy," said Jeff Shinkle, Fall 
River sophomore. 

"We take turns cleaning but usually we 
end up cleaning together and we don't 
usually do the dishes," said Shannon 
Potter, Hamilton sophomore.

Hubbard's gifts 
benefit students 

A philanthropist is defined as a person 
who is involved in promoting human 
welfare, as by making charitable dona- 
tions. On our campus a philanthropist is 
better defined as R.D. and Joan D. 

August 1 8,1 989, was the day the school 
received a $500,000 cash donation and a 
$1 million deferred contribution, a benevo- 
lent gift from the Hubbard foundation. 
Hubbard, a 1956 Butler graduate, provided 
incentive to improve student services on 
campus, as well as launch a three-year, 
$3-million-fund raiser for the "Shaping the 
Future" campaign. 

Hubbard's gift was the largest ever 
made to a community college, and in the 
top ten contributions to a community 
college in the nation. This benign gift was 
spent to renovate the L.W.Nixon Library 
building and provide a centralized .location 
for all student services. The new facility 
was named the Hubbard Student Services 

"I take great personal pleasure in being 
able to provide this gift which will make 
possible the much needed streamlining of 

Butler student services as well as making it 
possible for them to launch their 
$3-million-capital campaign," said 
Hubbard. "The most important aspect ofi 
this gift is that it will continue to benefitl 
those who want to improve themselves; 
through education." 

The generosity of the Hubbard's gift has ; 
continued to benefit students in a very> 
direct way; the student services were; 
centrally located for maximum efficiency) 
and convenience. With the Hubbards as : 
Butler's benefactor, the advantages for the 
students have been phenomenal. 

"Because of the generosity of Mr. and 
Mrs. Hubbard, our students will have a 
Hubbard Center to better meet their 
counseling, registration, and study needs. 
We will never be able to thank the; 
Hubbards enough," said Butler President 
Rodney Cox.

Unsung heros — making it happen

There were many factors that contibuted 
to the campus' running so well this year. 
Administration and faculty were some; 
however, there were those who worked 
just as hard as the teachers and admini- 
strators, but didn't receive the same 

Ever wondered why the campus looked 
so clean? Or who raked up all the leaves 
during the fall, and who cleared the sidew- 
alks of snow in the winter? Those jobs and 
countless others fell under the responsibili- 
ties of Buildings and Grounds headed by 
Ted Albright. Albright believed that his staff 
of janitors and mechanics made up the 
backbone of Butler. 

Stacee Pitts, secretary of media resource center, 
talks about the schedules and equipment with Joe 
Hostetler, director of media resource center. The 
media resource center has four full-time employees 
and six student workers to keep the center flowing 
smoothly. Photo by Trish Howard 

"Nobody realizes the importance of 
Buildings and Grounds.. . without their help, 
this school can't run," said Albright. 

Other unsung heroes would be the libra- 
rians, headed by Hugh Richardson. The 
library staff, made up of two full-time work- 
ers, two part-time workers, and nine 
students, were always there to help. Cata- 
loguing books, returning them to their 
appropriate shelf space and making sure 
the students found what they needed were 
some of the responsibilities the library staff 
had this year; however, that wasn't all of it. 
Hazel Clothier, the assisstant librarian, 
was in charge of the circulation desk, and 
Mary Lowe worked on the library's 

"The whole library staff works as a team 
to keep it running smoothly," said 

Although these individuals worked 
outside the limelight, they played an impor- 
tant role in keeping Butler running. And 
even though it seemed most of the credit 
went to teachers, counselors and admini- 
strators, people musn't forget about the 
contributions and efforts given by the jani- 
tors and librarians and the countless others 
who were just as important.

Ranger hopeful fights fire 

Brenda Booth decided not to wait until 
graduation to get involved in her field of 
study — forestry. Instead of spending a 
quiet summer at home, Booth went to 
Wyoming last summer to help fight fires in 
Yellowstone National Park. 

"I got involved in forestry because my 
family goes camping and I like to be 
outside," said Booth. 

Booth stayed at Canyon Village near the 
center of the fires; however, she was in 
basically no danger. Booth reported that 
the fires started by lightning striking trees 
during the dry summer. When she arrived 
at Wyoming, she was startled at what she 

"It was not as bad as I thought it would 
be. I thought everything would be all flat. If 
you hadn't known what it looked like 
before, you would never have known there 
had been a fire," said Booth. 

While in Wyoming, Booth helped to 
repair burned trails. She also assisted in 
replacing water bars, which are like minia- 
ture dams that stop erosion. That work was 
similar to what Booth would like to do in the 

"I would like to be a park ranger in 
Washington or Maine doing trail work," 

Brenda Booth, Clearwater sophomore, spent last 
summer working as a forest ranger in Yellowstone 
National Park. 

Booth said. 

With her ambition to get ahead, she 
should have no trouble accomplishing her 
goals. She has displayed her drive for 
success on the cross country team and if 
she works as hard toward forestry as she 
did for the women's nationally ranked 
team, she'll do great.

tonorary Recognition Award was received 
>y Janice Jones, nursing instructor. Jones 
\ias nominated by the District Ten for 
-utstanding service to the nursing program

"It was an honor. It didn't really hit me 
intil afterwards, and because it was an 
iward from my peers made it extra 
special," said Jones. 

Jones did not only care what the award 
would do for her career, but also what it 
/vould do for the nursing profession in

Registrar enjoys new job 

Taking care of the student was a major 
concern of Paul Kyle, the new registrar. His 
duties included taking care of student 
records, doing degree checks, all registra- 
tion, enrollment and applications for 

Kyle came here from Wichita State 
University where he was in their admis- 
sions's office. He received his education 
from three different schools. His associ- 
ates's degree was from Garden City 
Community College, his bachelor's degree 
from Sterling College and his master's 
degree from Wichita State University. With 
such a well-rounded education and lively 
personality Kyle was definetly an asset to 
our staff. 

On the other hand, Kyle felt that he was 

fortunate to be on our staff. 

"It was great to work around such 
professional staff all working toward oni 
cause, the student. Butler County is in 
progressive mode as far as education wa 
concerned," said Kyle.

Pageant contestant 

More than 30 girls were escorted on to 
the stage at Century II, to participate in the 
Miss Kansas USA pageant on Saturday, 
November 18. Tolli Cook, El Dorado fresh- 
man was one of the 30. 

The girls were judged on a five to seven 
minute interview before the pageant 
started. The interview questions could be 
on any topic ranging from a political ques- 
tion to a question about yourself. Then 
during the pageant they were judged on 
swimsuit and evening gown. 

Cook really felt that the pageant was an 
excellent experience. She learned to have 
more self esteem and felt that she also 
learned how to communicate better with 

"It's a good experience for anyone. It 

teaches poise, and helps you to communi- 
cate better with others," said Cook. 

This pageant was the second one Cook 
had participated in. While in high school 
she participated in the Miss Kansas Teen 
Pageant and was fourth runner up. She 
also received the Miss Congeniality award 
at this pageant. 

She was also a graduate of the Patricia 
Stevens Modeling School, was tied for first 
in the Face Finders modeling competition, 
and participated in an international model- 
ing competition in Florida. Even though 
Cook has had many modeling experiences 
she still was very nervous. 

"You try not to think about the competi- 
tion itself. Instead you think about the new 
experience and all of the neat people you 
will meet." 

Being in this pageant was definitely a 
good decision for Cook. 

"I chose to do this because of the experi- 
ence and it proves to myself that I can 
accomplish anything that I set out to do," 
said Cook.

Sultry jungles 
vs. cool offices 

Developing an alphabet for a foreign 
tribe that had no previous written language, 
administering medical needs to the 
diseased and teaching both adults and 
children to read and write their own 
language were all part of the challenging 
responsibilities Sherry Lamm experienced 
1 3 years ago. Lamm served as a translator 
in the Philippines for four years while work- 
ing for the Summer Institute of Linguistics. 
Linguistics is the study of language 

Lamm adjusted to a new, more simplistic 
lifestyle as she was faced with making a 
home out of a grass hut in the midst of a 
jungle and learning the ways of the 

"The people lead much simpler lives 
where I worked. They do not have near the 
complexity of problems that the U.S. socie- 
ty does," said Lamm. 

Despite one frightening experience with 
some Communists in the area, Lamm felt 
very comfortable and safe in her new 
surroundings . She lived within a tribe that 
consisted of 25 families, or approximately 
200 people, that were all related to one 
another in some aspect. 

"Living in the Philippines gave me a 
chance to learn a lot about myself. The 
villagers taught me more than I taught 
them. They made me aware that new and 
different cultures are not wrong or right 
compared to our own, they're simply diffe- 
rent," said Lamm. 

Lamm was a counselor on campus who 
specialized in advising international 
students. As a counselor, she determined 
if foreign students were eligible to attend 
school in the states, worked with students 
as a career counselor and helped with job 
placement. She also taught career plan- 
ning and a conversational Spanish 

"Working as a counselor at Butler is a 


challenging job with lots of variety, which is; 
what I really like," said Lamm. 

Lamm was very dedicated to the 
students at Butler and had no current plans 
of resigning her counseling position; 
however, someday she would like to return 
to the Philippines to visit or even possibly to 
resume her career as a translator. 

"If the right opportunity came along, and 
my husband were willing, I'd love to go 
back overseas," said Lamm.

Mom deserves medal 

Jerrie Towner should probably get a 
medal for bravery. She enrolled in college 
the same time as her son, Chris. 

Chris Towner was a sophomore major- 
ing in history and Jerrie was a freshman 
majoring in elementary education. 

"Apprehension was a big obstacle when 
I first decided to enroll. Even though I am a 
very serious student, I think Chris is a 
better student than I am because he has 
not had a twenty-year lapse in his school- 
ing," said Chris Towner. 

Being a student at the same time as your 
son presented some unusual roll changes 
for the Towners. 

"There is not much competition between 
us but Chris is very curious about my 
grades and what classes I am taking. He 
likes to make comparisons between his 
grades and mine," said Jerrie. 

Jerrie was a serious student and hoped 
to make a 4.0 grade point average, but 
even if she did not reach this goal she 
should be commended for her courage in 
returning to school with a son who was an 
upperclassman. Not many parents would 
undertake such a deed.

Wolf challenges foes 

A desire to be the best has always been 

goal for Chad Wolf. 

"My team won the state championship 
ly senior year and we finished the season 
'ith a 24-1 record. I was honored as All- 
:lass 2A basketball player along with one 
f my teammates. The state championship 
'as the greatest moment for me, as it was 
ly best game ever," said Wolf. 

Wolf became interested in competing in 
thletics, particularly basketball, at a very 
Dung age. 

"I'm from a small school and a small 
>wn," stated Wolf, "so athletics were a 
lajor part of my life ever since the third or 
>urth grade." 

Wolf followed basketball into college to 
iresee a much better future in the sport, 
s a returning starter for the Grizzly 
asketball team, he had many expecta- 
)ns for the team. 

"As long as we have a winning season," he 
said, "we will accomplish our goals. If the 
team does well, it will help me to step into a 
bigger school. That will be better than 
being a star." 

Chad also states, "We can step up and 
show leadership and keep everybody from 
becoming satisfied. You do not become 
satisfied until you are the best," he added 
with confidence. 

At age nineteen, Wolf has accomplished 
and received many outstanding rewards. 
He is scheduled to graduate in May with a 
degree in business. He felt he had met 
many of his goals since he was young, and 
he was r lad they had carried him this far. 

Everyone who played against Wolf this 
year found out that he was out to be the

ionships as a high school athlete. 

"I love sports and I was from a small 
school so anyone who is athletic does all 
sports," said Righter. 

However, Righter was not just any track 
athlete. She competed in four sprinting 
events and was a vital member of the 
Chaparral State Track Championship team 
her freshman year. 

"As a freshman, our winning state when 
we were not expected to was my most 
memorable moment," said Righter. 

Although Righter has proven herself to 
be a brilliant runner, her heart lies on the 
basketball court not on the track. 

"Track is fun but running is all you do. In 
basketball you run, but you also play 
defense, shoot and it is just more exciting," 
said Righter. 

Righter carried her passion for athletics 
onto the community college level in the 
form of basketball and outdoor track. 
Competing in two sports at the college level 
was more difficult than competing in the 
same sports in high school, but it provided 
Righter with some more "memorable

Library proves 
rewarding job 

Managing the L.W. Nixon Library was a 
demanding, but rewarding job for librarian 
Hugh Richardson. Selecting materials that 
are useful to students, working on attaining 
a computer system that would make the 
card catalogue system obsolete and 
budgeting library spending were all part of 
the many responsibilities that Richardson 

Richardson had been part of Butler's 
staff since 1966, but it was not until 1976 
that he became the head librarian. When 
Richardson first came to the college, the 
library was designed for 600 students. Yet 
to this day, the library occupies the same 
amount of space and has the same number 
of librarians that it had 23 years ago. The 
concern was that now the library serves 
over five times as many students, making 
the demands that much greater. 

"I'd like to see the library grow. In the first 
three weeks of school, over 6400 people 
made usage of the library, which is more 
than ever before," said Richardson. 

The L.W. Nixon Library had over 33,000 
books, approximately 200 different maga- 
zine titles and 11 kinds of newspapers 
available for students in need of research 
materials. The library also housed books 
that were of personal interest areas, with 
topics ranging from love and hate to mental 
health and photography. 

"There are many kinds of students at 
Butler. We hope that we are of some help 
to the students by providing special interest 
books for all types of concerns," said 

Richardson was a man of many inter- 
ests, but it was his interest in reading and 
dealing with information and ideas that led 
him into choosing a career as a librarian. 

"I'm interested in reading almost 

Hugh Richardson, helps students get the most out c 
the library. Photo by Joe Terry 

anything, as long as I can understand thet 
material. I enjoy reading," said- 

When visiting the library, one seldomf 
realized the mind behind the scenes that 
made everything possible and available fori 
all who were in search of knowledge. 
Richardson was that "mind" behind the 
scenes that truly had an important job that 
effected all who utilized the vast resources 
that the library had to offer.

Lauretta Mayes was a behavioral 
science and administrative justice 

Mayes received her Bachelor of Arts 
degree in psychology and her Master's 
degree in criminal justice. 

Mayes became interested in criminal 
justice while working with juveniles. 

"When I was in psychology my desire 
was to concentrate my efforts on juveniles. 
I wanted to interact with those juveniles to 
rehabilitate them. I needed to learn more 
about what caused juveniles to behave that 
way and how I could help them," said 

She has also devoted some of her time 
to doing research. She has written many 
different articles about subjects she has 
researched. She has written about toxic 
waste after researching it for a year, airline 
aircraft security after researching it for nine 
months and the values and adjustments to 
the nation's schools after researching them 
for one and a half years. 

"I choose subjects that I have strong 
interests in and ones that I want to gain as 
much knowledge as possible on," said 

Mayes committed herself to her 
research and financed it on her own. 

She also worked with prominent people 
with her work. She received a lot of help 
from Congressman Dan Glickman and 
Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth 

"I love my teaching job the most. My 
students are very significant people to me. I 
want to help them as much as possible," 
said Mayes.

Turning from Wrong to Right 

After sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, Gary 
Mitchell changed his life. 

Mitchell had not known either church or 
God. After learning that rock and roll was a 
phony world filled with drug abusers he got 
burned out. 

"While I was in the band I became an 
alcoholic. My marriage went bad because 
there were lots of women and sex was just 
there. I soon learned those were just phony 
relationships," said Mitchell. 

When he married his second wife he 
was looking for a different type of life. His 
wife was a Christian and he changed for six 
months and then went back to his old ways. 

After having a son, Mitchell decided to 
go to church so that he could become a 
good father. He hoped to change his life. 
He left the Church again after his wife's 
sister moved in. His wife soon left him and 
he blamed God for what had happened to 

Mitchell finally turned to the church for 
good two years after his son died of Rye's 


"I just went to a church and asked God 
for help," said Mitchell. 

He started playing Christian rock, and 
played at the Four-Square Gospel Church 
for five years. After that he joined a band 
called the Thirteenth Hour. He played in the 
band for two years before quitting. 

Mitchell crushed both of his hands in an 
accident and was never supposed to play 
again; however, he has regained 90 
percent of his playing capability and he felt 
he would be ready to play in a band again 
by summertime. Since he was not able to 
play his guitar he has been counseling 

"I went through a course at Life Bible 
College and received a certificate to 
counsel children," said Mitchell. 

He has devoted his life to church and 

kids. _ . _. w 

by Tom Brits 

Gary Mitchell changed his life through God and gives 
it to others through his music and counseling.

Student Crowned Queen 

Attending interview sessions, modeling 
in a swimsuit and sportswear contest and 
giving a prepared speech were but part of 
the activities involved in becoming El 
Dorado's Miss Prairie Port in the Prairie 
Port Pageant. Competing against nine- 
teen other contestants, Liz Bardin, Towan- 
da freshman, accumulated the highest 
scores from the different categories, 
making her the reigning queen. 

"It was the first time I had ever been in a 
pageant. I was really nervous, and I was 
paranoid that I'd fall in my three-inch heels 
in front of the large crowds of people," said 

The pageant, held during the summer of 
1989, proved to be very rewarding for 
Bardin. She learned the correct tech- 
niques for walking and talking while 
competing in a pageant, and she was able 
to experience something new and exciting. 

"I am really glad I was in the pageant. I 
met many neat girls, and I made some 
close friendships," said Bardin. 

Bardin was an outgoing individual, who 
besides being named Miss Prairie Port, 
was involved in numerous other activities. 
Whether she played sports, managed the 
ads for the Lantern or entered competitions 
and became the award winner — Bardin 
has kept herself busy. 

Bardin's long-range goals included 
majoring in journalism and someday 
owning her own advertising agency. 

"I enjoy going to school at Butler, 
because you get to know lots of people and 
everyone is friendly," said Bardin.

Liz Bardin, Towanda freshman, was named El 
Dorado Miss Prairie Port. Other interests of Bardin 
include being advertising manager of The Lantern 
and making friends with people here on campus.

Sudduth plans for future 

Man Sudduth, Andover sophomore, looks forward 
) a brighter future now that the cancer that invaded 
is body is in remission. Photo courtesy of Sharon 

Compared to a year ago, Allan Sudduth, a 
twenty-four-year-old sophomore from Andover, 
had a brighter future. 

"I finally feel like a twenty year old man 
instead of a seventy year old man," Sudduth 

In October of 1 988, Allan was diagnosed with 
cancer. It had ravaged his body leaving him in 
severe pain. 

"I was scared, I never would have imagined 
that I could have come this far," Sudduth said. 

In his fight to overcome the monster that 
invaded his body, Sudduth faced both surgery 
to remove a tumor and nine months of harsh 
chemotherapy which caused the loss of his hair 
and weakened his immune system. 

Sudduth recalls, "I had to fight like a cat at a 
dog convention, but it obviously paid off 
because I feel great now." 

With the cancer in apparent remission, 
Sudduth set out to accomplish many goals. He 
started his own business in Andover and 
planned to complete his degree in banking and 
finance. He had made a miraculous recovery 
and planned to let nothing stand in his way.

Anderson's nautical adventures prove to be exhilarating 

Lewis Anderson found the United States 
Javy to be an exhilarating and educational 

"The aircraft carrier I was on, the 
Constellation, was the first line of force in 
he Persian Gulf during the hostage crisis 
>f 1980," said Anderson. 

Although Anderson's ship left the gulf 
ind headed south of the Strait of Hormuz in 
he Northern Arabian Sea, the crew was 
;till in unfriendly territory. 

"Me and my buddy was workin' the night 
;hift and there were two other ships along 
;ide of us. One of the ships was refuelin' 
is. Me and my buddy was on the port side 
jst aft of midship working in a cramped 
ittle compartment when we heard the 
imergency break away alarm," Anderson 

Anderson stated that at this point he was 
lot too worried and felt this was probably 
jst another of the countless drills he went 
hrough on board ship. 

"Although we weren't too worried, we 

began to wonder what was goin' on when 
the collision alarm sounded next. We really 
couldn't remember what that particular 
alarm was for and we could have moved a 
little faster," said Anderson with some 

As events escalated, suddenly, Ander- 
son received an education and a heavy 
shot of adrenelin. 

"Suddenly something hit the ship just aft 
of the bow on the port side, but none of us 
knew what it was. We found out it was 
another ship colliding with us but at the time 
we were sure we were under attack by 
Iranians because the sound of the collision 
was just like the sound of a harpoon missle 
hitting. I remember my buddy saying 'My 
God they've done it, those crazy bastards 
have actually done it,' and I was believin' it 
too," Anderson said. 

The mast of another ship hit the cat walk 
(a walkway around the flight deck) just 
outside of the compartment they were in. 

Anderson and his buddy stepped out on 

deck and could see they had been in a colli- 
sion when they saw the other ship beside 

"Everything was real quiet for a few 
seconds after the mast hit our ship and 
then General Quarters was sounded and 
we knew this was definitely not a drill. I 
went to the armory and checked out my 
M-16 and went to my battle station. We 
could see a lot of dark-complected people 
swarming across the deck of the other ship 

and as far as we were concerned they were 
Iranians preparing to board our ship," 
Anderson said. 

At this point fifty marines turned out, fully 
ready for attack, and boarded the offending 

"When the Marines boarded the other 
ship they found it was a Bangladesh freigh- 
ter cruising on auto pilot. They found the 
captain and crew below deck playing 
poker, and we were in the shipping lanes," 
Anderson said. 

Soon after this, Anderson heard there 
was only one hole in the side of his ship and 
luckily it was above the waterline. 

"We were relieved we weren't under 
terrorist attack. We held their ship till morn- 
ing and then released them. We had no 
jurisdiction over them and as far as I know 
nothing was ever done to them as punish- 
ment," Anderson concluded. 

Anderson found out that knowing what 
the alarms meant exactly and reacting 
quickly to them could be important to him. 
There were a lot of drills on the Constella- 
tion following the accident.

Dancer plays tennis 

Whether Brandie Niedens 
Dodge City freshman, was kickinc 
her heels up as a summertime carv 
can dancer or hitting tennis balls aj 
a member of Butler's varsity tennis 
team— she was always looking fo 

Niedens performed as a can-car 
dancer in a variety show for the 
Dodge City Boothill Museum. TN 
shows lasted on an average o 
about an hour and a half. 

"I needed a summer job, and I hac 
always wanted to be a can-car 
dancer. So, three summers ago, 
got the job," said Niedens. 

Though Niedens had many fur, 
experiences as a Dodge City 
dancer, she hoped to be a nanny ir 
New York for the following summer, 

Niedens majored in biology anc 
competed on the tennis squad while 
attending Butler. Her main reason? 
for choosing to attend school in Ei 
Dorado were because of the smal 
classes available and the chance tc 
play for the tennis team. 

"Most of my basics will be behinc 
me after Butler, so I'll be able to gc 
on to a large university and have 
some idea of what I am doing," saic

friendship Strengthened by 

■ Labor of Love 

Friendship can mean many things at 
different times through our lives. When 
we were children, a friend was some- 
one we played with. As we grew older, a 
friend became someone to confide in, 
someone to share our joys and fears 
with, but friendship in adulthood takes 
on a more mature perspective. 

Valerie Campbell, Butler sophomore, 
exemplified this new maturity in her 
special friendship. After the first of this 
year, a girlfriend asked Campbell to be 
her childbirth coach. Campbell's initial 
reaction was shock, not so much over 
the fact that her friend was pregnant, as 
the fact that she was asked to partici- 
pate in the birth of her friend's child. 
Campbell was asked to be a part of the 
miracle of birth that was traditionally 
reserved for the father of the baby. 

Tuesday nights became "their night", 
an evening to eat out and attend 
Lamaze childbirth preparation classes. 
The classes provided a special time for 
for the two friends to be together, time 
which previously had been hard to 
come by. As the time wore on, however, 
both mother and friend were ready for 
the big event. 

"We were both getting anxious to get 
it (the birth) over with," said Campbell. 

Campbell, by her own admission, 
handled the birth better than the aver- 
age "expectant father". As labor prog- 
ressed, her friend became more 
despondent, but Campbell was there to 
offer reassurance and remind her 
"student" to apply her relaxation tech- 
niques that they had learned in Lamaze. 

When the long-awaited moment had 

arrived, a beautiful 7 lb. boy was the 
result of hours of anticipation. Campbell 
had developed a new respect for her 
friend and for life. 

"It just amazes me that they can go 
through all that," said Campbell. 

If friendship is measured by shared 
experiences, then Campbell and her 
new family will have a truckload to talk 
about in future years.

Dedicated editor sets standards 



Tamara Guse, El Dorado sophomore, wanted to be a 
journalist since she was a club reporter in 4-H. As 
editor for the college newspaper, the Lantern, Guse 
averaged 35 hours a week working to meet the weekly 
deadlines. Photo by Joe Terry 


If you were to look up the word "dedica-i )o 
tion" in the dictionary, you just might find art 
picture of Tamara Guse because she set; 
new standards for the term. 

Guse was the editor lorThe Lantern, the^B 
college's weekly newspaper. In order to: 
hold this position, Guse must not only be 
dedicated to the challenge week after 
week, but she also must love work, and|ui 
have tremendous amounts of patience in 
orderto handle the pressure that came with 
the job. 

"I work about 35 hours a week on the 
newspaper," said Guse. 

Her patience came in handy at times too, ... 
especially "When we are running so fart 
behind that we miss the night deadline and : lik 
I have to get up at 5:00 a.m. to take thefe; 
paper to Augusta," said Guse. 

Guse became interested in journalism 
when she belonged to the 4-H club. 

"In 4-H, I made club reporter. I have 
been interested ever since," said Guse. 

It was fortunate for Guse she had nerves iio 
of steel because the stress of the journalis- 
tic process could drive even the strongest 
people to insanity. 

"I love it. I love the stress. I love the pres- 
sure of the deadline," Guse said. 

The future seemed bright for this hope- 
ful, young journalist. After finishing with her 
one-year editorship, Guse planned to 
move on "to a four-year school and 
continue in journalism."

Keith Cobb was great at what he did. He 
ras a thief. He stole bases. 
j "I was ranked sixth in the Jayhawk 
:onference for homeruns and eighth in the 
ation for RBI," said Cobb, a sophomore 
om Lawrence, Kansas. 

Although Cobb had more homeruns and 
!Bls than stolen bases his freshman year, 
lis year he's starting out on shaky turf. 

"In the fifth game of fall ball I got hit by a 
itch on my foot that I've already had 
urgery on twice," said Cobb. 

Even though he couldn't play in too 
lany games after his injury, Cobb was 
'etermined to do better than last year. 

"I lift weights on Mondays, Wednesdays 
nd Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays 
rhen I am supposed to run, I go and have 
iy foot worked on and ride the exercise 
ike so I can strengthen my foot so I'll be 
3ady for spring," said Cobb. 

Cobb hoped to continue his baseball 
reams by attending a four-year college on 
baseball scholarship and then hopefully 
oing into the major leagues. 

With Cobb's hard work and determina- 
on he could very well be on his way to a 
Jture World Series Championship Game.

Card game 
/ess stress, 
more fun 

Pitch, spades, poker, blackjack — 
whatever the game of choice, the neces- 
sary ingredients remained the same. A 
deck of cards, plenty of food and drink, a 
television set and a group of fast-talking, 
money-hungry, card-crazy young men 
were the ingredients that helped make up 
the weekly card games that some Butler 
students enjoyed. 

"We play cards so the guys can get 
together once a week and have some fun," 
said Richard Britt, Alexandria, Va. 

While usually the group consisted of the 
same friends, anyone was invited for an 
evening filled with jokes, wild stories and 
some serious card action. According to 
inside sources, the games lasted for three 
or four hours, or until everyone was out of 

The card games became a weekly tradi 
tion that were begun to help break thei 
monotony of school life. 

"We got bored one day, grabbed somei 
beer, grabbed some cards and we jus 
started playing," said Billy Lawrence, Eurei 
ka sophomore. 

The group of players, all having nicki 
names from characters from the motioi: 
picture Top Gun, bragged of many excitinc 
and amusing experiences. Their care 
games were never considered dull. 

"One time when we were playing cards, 
wound up losing $31 in five minutes. I hae 
to write out checks to cover my losses. So 
now I just play for fun; I don't bet anymore, 
It was becoming too expensive. Ever 
though sometimes gambling was prett; 
fun," said Ty Little, Augusta sophomore

Helping the future 

Dr. William Langley, biology instructor, 
had a major interest in the enviroment and 
the futures of our younger generations. 
Langley was involved and believed strong- 
ly in saving rain forests. 

"I see the destruction of tropical rain 
forests as one of the most pressing issues 
at this time. Because rain forests will be 
gone by 2025 if things keep going as they 

Langley became interested in saving the 
rain forests when he was looking through a 
magazine and noticed an ad. The ad was 
from the World Wildlife Fund saying that for 
$50 one could buy one acre of rain forest 
land, on the Monteverde Nature Reserve in 
Costa Rica to help preserve it. Langley 
gave it more thought and came up with an 
assignment for his biology students. The 
students must collect cans. With the 
money they received from recycling cans 
these cans, they bought the forest land. 

Rain forests are being destroyed for 

many reasons. The forest land is being] 
cleared away to make cheap grazing areas 
for fast food restaurants to raise beef. 
Wood products are also being cleared from i 
the forest, like mahogany to make furni- 
ture. The most vital reasons for the 
destruction of the rain forest is that future 
generations may need the forest and they 
will be gone and all of the animals that live 
there will be gone also. 

"Saving the rain forest shows our intere- 
lationship with the rest of the life on earth. 
Once it's gone we may not last much 
longer," said Langley.

Jack of all trades 

"Jack of all trades, master of none" was 
NJadir Ahmed's clever way of describing 
himself. Ahmed, Bangledesh sophomore, 
was a unique individual with many talents, 
including both musical and athletic 

Ahmed was a very popular and busy 
young man in his homeland. His major 
accomplishments included earning a black 
belt in Karate, being the captain of his high 
school soccer team which was national 
Dhampions for three consecutive years, 
winning the Nissan Tennis Cup along with 
his doubles partner, meeting the president 
Df Bangledesh on several occasions, 
recording music for local radio stations and 
teaching both Karate and guitar lessons to 
Interested pupils. Ahmed enjoyed being 
Dusy and keeping involved in a wide variety 
Df activities. 

"Music is one of my favorite pasttimes; it 
s part of my life. I sing all the time," said 

Ahmed carried a full class load as he 
attended Butler and planned on possibly 
ransferring to Wichita State University 
after graduation. He was striving to earn 
lis Ph.D. and then return back to Bangled- 
ssh as soon as possible. 

Ahmed was part of Butler's tennis team 
ast spring, but found that continuing his 
ennis career for the fall and spring 
seasons of the following year would have 
Deen too demanding. He resided in Wichi- 
:a, making the drive back and forth to the 
:ampus tiresome. He had, however, 
loped to compete for WSU's tennis team 
jpon transferring schools. 

While Ahmed liked living in the states, he 
missed his country, family and girlfriend. 

"I used to cry for my family when I first 

Nadir Ahmed, Bangledesh sophomore, (r) talks to 
Tina Nemeth. Wichita freshman, about his interests. 
Photo by Joe Terry 

moved here to go to school. So, I would call 
them quite often. I would have phone bills 
of over $300 each month," said Ahmed. 

Ahmed noticed many dissimilar 
aspects between Bangledesh and the 
United States that went beyond the 
distinct differences involving the 
language and foods. 

"Americans have the best of every- 
thing, while many people of my country 
have very little. But, we're people that are 
much more affectionate toward one 
another," said Ahmed. 

Ahmed possessed a warm and friendly 
personality, an intelligent mind and polite 
mannerisms. These positive characteris- 
tics, along with his numerous talents, 
helped accumulate into one amazing 
person. Ahmed was definitely someone to 
be noticed.

Retreat to the past 

If you ever wanted to step back into time, 
the Flint Hills Overland Wagon Train Trip 
was where to start, according to Larry 
Patton, a stockholder in the nonprofit 

"You return to a simpler life," said Patton. 

Patton had always loved the outdoors 
and owned several horses. His wife Vicki 
bought him stock in the Wagon Train for his 
birthday a couple of years ago. 

"It was a perfect opportunity to get 
involved," said Patton. 

"Besides, continued Patton, the Flint 
Hills are the most beautiful place on earth 
and people are not aware of the beauty of 
the region." 

The Wagon Train experience takes 
place over a weekend. Authentic wagon 
train rides and hearty pioneer meals trans- 
port people back to the 1870s. 

Patton and his wife worked as outriders 
on the wagon train. Outriders go ahead of 

the train and open up gates for the wagons 
as they pass through. Their part in the train 
as outriders also was to set a pioneer atmo- 
sphere for those riding. 

"Most guests end up walking, not realiz- 
ing how bumpy the wagons are," said 

"Although the Wagon Train may seem 
romantic and worry-free, there is hard work 
involved in preparing for the weekend. 
Many people are involved in planning 
meals, entertainment, and just making 
sure it all goes smoothly," said Patton. 

Even though Patton felt that time forgot 
you out on the prairie, eventually reality 
sets in and everyone must return to their 
weekly jobs. Patton's was the division 
chairman of humanities and fine arts. 

"When the weekend is over, I come back 
to work and feel refreshed until the next 
time," said Patton.

On A Roll 

Sammy Cahn's Classical Call Me Irres- 
ponsible and Motley Crue's popular Girls, 
Girls, Girls were just a couple tunes in the 
eclectic repertoire of Butler's nonstop 
drummer Scott Gladfelter. 

Gladfelter, a sophomore from Clearwa- 
ter, was a well known celebrity in Butler's 
musical circles. His fame wasn't so aston- 
ishing considering he was the stickman for 
practically every band in the area. On 
campus, the drummer was a vital element 
in the success of the Jazz Ensemble- 
Butler's Big Band, the school's Pep Band, 
the Concert Band and various combos 
when special recitals were given. 

"The essential quality of a good drum- 
mer is that of cohesion. The drummer has 
to lay down the time for the group and 
accept that role," said Roger Lewis, 
Butler's Instrumental Music and Theory 
Instructor. "So many times drummers try to 
stand out and overplay. Scott has learned 
that the best thing he can do for himself and 
the group is to create unity." 

Gladfelter's constant drumming didn't 
stop when he left the campus. "No, I'm in a 
rock band too. We practice everyday and 
play for parties, school dances, 
weddings.. .things like that," said the confi- 
dent music man. "And we write a lot of stuff 

The crescendo grows as hours, 
years... even a lifetime is devoted to a driv- 
ing desire to make music. Most inspiring 
musicians don't ever make it to the profes- 
sional world, and most don't even make 
their living in the business. But some do. 
Gladfelter and his best rimshot just might 
make it. Watchout for those Girls, Girls, 
Girls Mr. Drummer.

Risking it all 

Darrin Pfingsten, Mulvane freshman, 
loved to jump off the mountain cliffs 190 
feet high. He liked the challenge of climbing 
the mountain then repelling back down. 

"I love the natural high I get right before I 
go over the edge of the mountain. There is 
no turning back once you go overthe edge, 
that's what makes it fun," said Pfingsten. 

Although rock climbing was fun it could 
be dangerous. 

"I slipped on a rock right before I was 
going over the edge and I fell about ten feet 
and it was 100 feet to the ground," said 

Even though rock climbing was exciting 
every time he went, Pfingsten would like to 
try some hang gliding. 

"I just love the natural high you get when 
you put your life on the line," said Pfingsten. 

Pfingsten loved the outdoors and the 
mountains. He liked to cliff dive off rocks 
into shallow ponds of water by lakes. He 
was outgoing and liked to hunt deer and go 
fishing. He was always ready for a new

Being offered a pro contract and then 
turning it down was not what most people 
would do but that was what Craig Brad- 
shaw did. 

Bradshaw was offered a pro contract to 
play baseball with the Atlanta Braves. 
Bradshaw was still in high school when he 
was offered the contract. He turned the 
contract down because he didn't feel he 
was ready. The contract was a $30,000 
signing contract. 

"I turned it down because I wanted at 
least two years of schooling and I wanted to 
mature as an athlete," said Bradshaw. 

Bradshaw decided to attend Butler after 
his coach told him about a junior college in 
Kansas. After visiting Butler he decided he 
liked the program. 

"It was kind of funny how I learned about 
Butler. One day I was coming from practice 
and I had forgotten my belt so I went back to 
get it and my coach told me about a college 
in Kansas," said Bradshaw. 

Bradshaw was a pitcher for the Grizzly 
baseball team and he thought the competi- 
tion was good and the exposure great. 

Bradshaw wasn't for sure what his major 
would be. He was considering physical 
education or journalism. 

For his future plans he didn't know what 
he would do. He planned to wait and make 
those kinds of plans after graduation. He 
hoped to be offered another pro contract. 

"A lot of scouts have been talking to me 
but I won't be able to decide until the 
season is over," said Bradshaw.

Accident changes future 

Seeing an accident does not affect 
people that much, but when one sees an 

accident with a loved one it usually causes 
a state of panic. Tammy Robbins was 
behind her boyfriend (Tracy Amspacker) 
when he had his accident. 

Robbins was the first one to see the acci- 
dent. She wasn't for sure what she was 
going to find when she stopped at the acci- 
dent and saw him lying in the middle of the 
road. The first thing she felt was horror and 

"I had no idea what to think. I turned him 
over and there was a huge pool of blood. 
There were clots of blood coming out of his 
ears and his eyes were full of blood," said 

When the policemen arrived they had 
Robbins go call Amspacker's parents and 
explain to them what happened. 

"I have lived in Valley Center all of my life 

but I didn't know where I was at when I went 
to call his Dad," said Robbins. 

When Robbins first went to see 
Amspacker the first night she was noi 
allowed to see him, since he was not 
expected to live. However, she was not told 
that he didn't have much chance of living. 

"When I wasn't allowed to see him I went 
home and all of hisf riends came overto my 
house and we all sat and waited," said 

When Amspacker started going through 
all of his therapy Robbins was there help- 
ing him all that she could. After helping 
Amspacker, Robbins decided that she 
wanted to go to college and major in physi- 
cal therapy. 

"Helping him helped me decide my 
major," said Robbins.

Car gets facelift 

Connections were nice to have, espe- 
cially if it meant a decrease in the price of 
something. When John Long, an El 
Dorado freshman, took his 1970 El Cami- 
no to the garage of a family friend in Wichi- 
ta, to have body work and a paint job done, 
he was excited about it. If he had only 
known that over a year later he would get 
his car back with more problems than it 
went in with, he most likely would not have 
been quite as excited. 

Long's El Camino was white, rusted, 
dented, and beat up, as far as the body of 
the car was concerned. The previous 
owners had painted it with silo, or elevator 
paint; therefore, unless washed by hand, 
the paint would come off. Once he washed 
it with a power hose at the car wash and 
could actually write his name on the side of 
the car. As soon as the high powered 
stream of water hit the paint job, the paint 
came off. 

Long took his car to the shop, where it 
was supposed to be painted white and gold 
and have the body refurbished. The entire 
job was not supposed to take but a few 
months, but problems quickly arose. First, 
there were problems with the paint, so 
Long decided on black. Parts seemed to 
cause problems also. 

Finally the car was painted and 
returned, but as soon as the car appeared, 
the owner of the shop disappeared. With 
good reason too. Within three months, 
there were places where the paint was 
chipping off, the windshield that was put in 
did not seal, the quarter panels, pieces of 

metal that must be cut to fit and welded in, 
had to be replaced, and the paint job had to 
be redone. 

None of this was cheap either. Long had 
kept the insurance up on the car because 
he was told it would be done in just a few 
months. The quarter panels cost Long 
from $1 50 to $200 a piece and the paint job 
cost a pretty penny too. 

Besides the cost, there was a lot of extra 
work for Long. But since he was enrolled in 
auto body classes, he decided to do the 
work himself. As a senior in high school, 
Long took an afternoon Auto Body I class, 
which enabled him to take Auto Body 1 1 as a 
first semester freshman. 

Kenny Goering, auto body instructor, 
gave Long a scholarship, and an A in the 
course. The scholarship was nothing 
unusual, however, the A was something 
Goering did not usually hand out. 

"I didn't even know it until 20 minutes 
before we walked the floor before gradua- 
tion," Long said, about his scholarship. He 
doubted the counselor when she told him, 
because he had not even applied for it. 

But all in all Long does not really mind 
working on his El Camino. He was able to 
customize his El Camino — do with it as he 

"A car is your own personality. When 
you customize a car you do things that you 
think will make it look better to both yourself 
and others. It's basically your ideas for 
everyone to see," Long said.

Making the unusual seem usual 

Wife, mother, student, full-time employ- 
ee, animal trainer and performer of great 
and magnificant feats. The girl next door. 
She wasn't famous. She claimed she 
wasn't rich. Was she the typical Butler 
County Community College co-ed? Don't 
Det on it. 

She was pretty enough to be both, the 
girl next door and the dream of the football 
eam's quarterback. But, going to college 
neant something different to her than it did 
o a lot of her classmates. Accomplish- 
ments seemed to be essential. For Cheri 
Moore, El Dorado freshman, getting a 
jegree meant probable advancements at 
work and the gratification of knowing she 
:ould do it. Admirable, but unusual? 

Unusual in the sense that while mother- 
ng, wiving, studying and working, Moore 
nade time everyday for her favorite hobby 
)f reining. 

Reining. ..what was so unusual about 

What the heck is reining? 

"Reining is an equestrian competition in 
which man and horse perform various 
maneuvers in a show arena, at controlled 
speeds and demonstrating little or no 
guidance of the horse by the rider," said 
Moore. "Judging is based on the execution 
of established association patterns and the 
horse's overall performance of finesse, 
attitude, quickness and authority." 

There are nine National Reining Horse 
Association patterns that horse and rider 
must be prepared to complete upon enter- 
ing competition. Riders do not know which 
pattern will be designated until the time of 
the event, so all the patterns have to be 
memorized and perfected. 

"I ride each of my horses at least 45 
minutes every day," said Moore, adding, 
that's the only way to keep your horse and 
/ourself fine tuned on the patterns." 
vloore's two horses kept her in her western 
style riding saddle no less than an hour and 
a half... everyday. 

Considering the maneuvers required by 
he patterns, it's understandable so much 
ime is needed for practice. Performing 
spins, rollbacks, sliding stops, and various 
sizes of circles, while changing leads, 
speeds and directions and with no appa- 
'ent guiding, man and horse must work 
ogether as if one. 

"Most people have never heard of rein- 
ng, but if they think of the tricks they've 

seen where horse and rider back up, or 
pivoting on the horse's hind feet, horse and 
rider spin like a top, those are some of the 
maneuvers in reining," said Moore. "The 
difference is that the moves must be exact 
and they are only a part of the perfor- 
mance. The whole performance must be 
made with very little movement of the 

Moore and her mount won the amateur 
division the very first year they competed. 
To fit between her pewter bowls she's won 
at previous events, Moore hoped to some- 
day win the bronze bowl that would signify 
winning the Limited Division. 

So, who fed and groomed her 
horses.. .she did. Who paid for the horses, 
the feed, the equipment, the transporta- 
tion, and the entry fees for competi- 
tion. ..she did. When? Between wiving, 
mothering, studying and working a full time 

A college degree would help. The 
accomplishment would probably mean a 
promotion and more money. More money 
might give her more opportunities to prac- 
tice reining. If a person can become rich 
and famous in reining competition, Moore 
is the one to do it. You can bet on it.

Cox's background 
full of intrigue 

Flying F-4's, being bombed and being a 
president of an Air Force community 
college were all part of President Rodney 
Cox's military background. 

He was stationed overseas in 1 7 diffe- 
rent countries. Some of them were France, 
England, Thailand and Germany. 

Some of his duties included being Chief 
of Security in charge of 6,000 policemen, 
president of the Communitty College of the 
Air Force and Deputy Chief of Police of 

"I was a flier and the most exciting 
aspect of my career was fighting the 
war( Vietnam). I flew over 100 missions in 
an F-4 over North Vietnam," said Cox. 

During the time Cox was the Deputy 
Chief of Police of Europe the Red Army 
Faction attempted to blow up the head- 
quarters of the United States Air Forces of 

"It was August 31, 1981, at 7:15 a.m. I 
heard a loud explosion and we had been hit 
by terrorists. The terrorists had parked a 
car by the building and escaped through a 
hole in the fence and rode off on a motorcy- 

cle. The terrorists had pointed the bomb 
towards the building so the blast was 
directed towards the building," said Cox. 

"We were lucky because no one was 
killed and only two-thirds of the bomb went 
off. If the other one-third of the bomb had 
gone off a lot of people would have been 
killed," said Cox. 

Cox came to Butler with experience after 
being president of the Air Force Communi- 
ty College. Cox found being president of 
this college the most gratifying job of his 
military career. 

"The most gratifying part of my job was 
working as president of the Community 
College of the Air Force. We awarded 
10,000 degrees a year and 90 percent of 
our graduates went on to receive a bacca- 
laureate degree," said Cox. 

Butler was different than his jobs with the 

"This job isn't as exciting but it's more 
gratifying. I get to know the students here," 
said Cox.

Pam Ferguson, Emporia sophomore and Kayoko 
Mikumo, Japan freshman share more than just a 
room. The two women prove that opposites attract. 
Common sports interests helped the two women to 
find a mutual interest and begin their new friendship. 
Photo by Rick Kessler 



Roommates share different cultures 

They were from opposite sides of the 
world. One had lived in Kansas all of her 
life, the other only just beginning her 
second year in this country. One of them 
was a blonde; the other had hair as black 
as midnight. One listened to progressive 
rock while the other preferred classical 
music. A combination of pizza and yogurt, 
basketball and ballet. Very much different, 
yet very much the same. Roommates. 

At the beginning of each school year it's 
not uncommon for college students to 
arrive on campus, check into the dorm and 
wait and wonder who it is that they will be 
living with. 

"I'm glad it worked out this way, we're 
really very good friends," said Emporia 
sophomore Pam Ferguson. "I don't think of 
her as being any different than anyone 

Ferguson jumped at the chance when 
she heard that there was a dorm room 
opening. She didn't know her new room- 
mate and she didn't give it a second 
thought when she found out that her new 
friend was Japanese. 

Kayoko Mikumo, freshman from Yoko- 
hama, Japan, had only lived in the United 

States for a year and a half. English was a 
language she learned how to read and 
write while in school in Japan, but Mikumo 
had to pick up speaking the language after 
coming to America. Studying physics, 
philosophy and Freudian psychology was 
a breeze compared to their pronunciations. 
Mikumo hoped her roommate would be 
compassionate and understand the chal- 
lenge of translating American slang. 

"Pam's so great, she really is a friend," 
said Mikumo, adding, "she helps me under- 
stand new words and what they mean." 

The roommates had a lot in common 
making it easier than might be expected for 
their friendship to blossom. Ferguson, a 
member of Butler's cross country team, 
and Mikumo, a former cross country runner 
herself, found a mutual pleasure in 
running. Both women liked sports of all 

The two also liked a lot of the same 
foods. Both confessed a new found affec : 
tion for junk food but didn't really know why. 
For the most part though, healthy food like 
steamed vegetables and baked chicken 
and fish was more to their liking. Some- 
thing in the tradition of real Japanese food, 

except sushi... Ferguson didn't know what 
that was. 

"Sushi is raw fish. It's raw, you don't cook 
it," explained Mikumo. 

What's it taste like," asked Ferguson? 

"Raw fish," said Mikumo. 

That explanation was good for a good 
round of laughter, as was the story about 
the time Ferguson tried to teach Mikumo 
how to drive. 

"She laughed and laughed. She couldn't 
stop laughing," said Mikumo. 

"I thought it was a lot of fun. I couldn't get 
her to go faster than 20 mph, It was so 
funny," said Ferguson. 

Something they each found out about 
themselves was their nocturnal chatter. 
Each accused the other of talking in her 
sleep. Imagine that — the United Nations 
has probably never experienced such a 

Roommates know the good side and the 
bad side of that person who sleeps on the 
other side of the room. The ultimate 
outcome of such an intimate relationship is 
a lifelong friendship. A roommate is a 
friend. In Japanese that's.. ToMoDaChi.

Reitz' roots are in Vietnam 

Max Reitz, Manhattan sophomore, stays in shape for 
baseball by working out in the training room provided 
for all athletes and students interested in using the 
equipment. Photo by Rick Kessler 

Da Mpao, South Vietnam. How far from 
home did Da Mpao students travel to 
attend Butler County Community College? 
How difficult was it to learn how to speak 
English? Was it much of an adjustment 
fitting in with the crowd? 

Learning to speak English took only 
about four, maybe five years. Travel time 
was only about two or three hours. Fitting 
in?. sweat. 

"The only trouble I have fitting in or 
understanding the language is when the 
coaches start talking about more laps," 
said Max Reitz, sophomore second base- 
man for Butler's baseball team. 

Reitz actually hailed from Manhattan, 
but if you went way back you would discov- 
er that this Grizzly started out in South 

Born in February of 1970, Reitz is the 
son of an American doctor and an Ameri- 
can nurse. His parents had not been 
married long, and although he had already 
fulfilled his tour of duty in South Vietnam, 
Reitz's father felt compelled to return to 
that country after his army discharge. 

As volunteers for Project Concern, Dr. 
and Mrs. Reitz joined forces with other 
medical people to provide health needs not 
supplied by either the United States or the 
South Vietnamese governments. As the 
war was escalating, so was Mrs. Reitz's 

Max Reitz was born in South Vietnam, 
but he didn't stay around too long. The 
Reitz family returned to the United States 
when their baby son was only about six 
months old. 

Nineteen years and pretty much a 

forgotten war later, Reitz realized the 
importance his parents felt for South 
Vietnam and the people involved. 

"Although the reality of it is hard to grasp, 
even in 1970 living conditions were primi- 
tive. The people lived in grass huts, pound- 
ed their harvested crops on stones and 
drank water from contaminated rivers," 
said Reitz, adding, "I guess that's part of 
the reason why my parents felt like they 
were needed. Probably still are." 

Most traditional students, ages 1 8 to 23, 
probably didn't spend much time thinking 
about this country's only "Lost War". Reitz 
didn't dwell on the subject, but he knew the 
significance it played in the memories of his 
parents. ..and of the memories of Butler's 
non-traditional students, ages 35 to 50. It's 
a time to remember, but also to forget. 

Reitz viewed the subject seriously, as 
well as other things. His teachers were 
heard to say, "He's an excellent student." 
And although he liked to give Reitz a hard 
time, in a confidential context, the baseball 
coach acknowledged his second base- 
man's work ethic. 

"Max is the kind of guy, as a coach, you 
want on your team," said Coach Rick Dreil- 
ing. "No, he's not Ryne Sandberg, but he 
works as hard as anyone and it will pay off." 

From a humble beginning in a remote 
jungle in Southeast Asia he came to Butler 
County Community College. Realistically, 
it was more like just down the road at 
Manhattan, Kansas.. .just the same he was 
here. He spoke English. He fit in pretty well

Robin Palone, Towanda freshman, practices march- 
ing at Fort Dixen, N.J. where she completed her basic 
training. Palone was able to live at home while being 
an army reserve. Photo courtesy of Robin Palone 

Palone survives Army's basic training 

Whoever said that women could not join 
the army must not have met Towanda 
freshman, Robin Palone. During the 
summer before her senior year, she 
enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves. Then 
this last summer she served her time in 
basic training and then went into the 
Army's Job Training Program. 

"I went into the Army, well, for one thing, 
my dad was in the Army. ..I thought it would 
be kind of neat for a female to carry on trad- 
ition. Part of it was tradition, part of it was 
college money, a lot of the benefits. 
There's an incredible amount of benefits. 
Also, it was a challenge, and I wanted to 
see if I could do something like that. And I 
came to find out that it was really tough, 
there were times I thought I couldn't. But 
anybody can do it." 

"It's not what people think it is. Basic 
itraining was, well yeah, it's what people 
think it is. You can't possibily know until 
you've been through it. ..But about half way 
through basic training it starts getting kind 
|of neat, kind of fun, still tough," said 
Palone. She was stationed in Ft. Dix, NJ 
during basic training. 

Palone's experience with weapons was 
both good and bad. At the start of training 
she loved the rifle ranges; however, 

because she had problems with her 
weapon, she had to take her qualifying test 
over, which made her twice as nervous. 
And as a left handed shooter, she had to 
wear a brass reflector to avoid being 
burned by the hot rounds coming out of the 
rifle. During one of her practice rounds, 
she was unable to wear the guard and 
some of the hot rounds hit her face and got 
stuck in her helmet strap. 

"I thought they were going to scar, but 
they feed you so well and give you vita- 
mins, that they went away. You are in such 
good shape when you're there, most of the 
scars you've had all your life go away." 

Palone loved and excelled at grenades. 

"Grenades were absolutely wonderful. I 
loved grenades, they were so fun," Palone 
said. She used dummies to practice with. 
"They weighed and felt just like actual 
grenades, but they just popped real loud, 
instead of actully exploding." 

After she qualified in her grenade train- 
ing, she threw two real grenades. Those 
were the only real ones she was allowed to 

The worst memory of basic training was 
during a weapons physical training (PT) 
drill. Her platoon had to hold their rifles out 
to their sides with the butt of the rifle off the 

ground. After an hour and a half of this, the 
drill sergeant checked his watch and was 
amazed how long the platoon had 
continued the drill. 

"Everyone was crying. Everyone. The 
whole platoon was crying, because their 
muscles had failed. It's called muscle 
failure, you PT until your muscles fail. You 
can't do anyting any more, you just lie 
there. You can't move." 

As a child Palone swore she would 
never join the military. By doing so she was 
afraid that she would be condoning war; 
however, as she went through the training 
"They told us this, and I'll never forget this. 
'I am an insurance policy. I am a statistic,'" 
Palone said. 

She felt like as long as America had a 
strong military that Americans would never 
have to worry about war, because other 
countries would not mess with the United 

"I really think that the military institution 
is great. You can get an immense amount 
out of it.. The things that I learned, I can 
actully use in real life." Palone said.

Youth with a Mission (YWAM) were 
groups of young and older people alike 
working together to spread the word of God 
o others. Dan Sommers, Towanda fresh- 
nan went on this special mission over the 
Dast summer and most of the fall semester. 
Sommers learned about the trip from 
several other people at his church who had 
gone before. 

"I was praying about what to do after 
nigh school and I felt that God called me to 
30 into the mission field," said Sommers. 

The trip lasted for a total of four months. 
Tne first three months were spent in Color- 
ado doing training on their relationships 
/vith God. Then the missionaries traveled 
Dn Outreach trips to several different states 
ncluding Florida, Louisiana, Texas and 
Mew Mexico. While on these Outreach trips 
hey challenged churches to get involved 
/vith missions. They also worked with FCA 
groups in the different states. 

Since Sommers has returned from his 
:rip he feels that the mission field was a 
good choice for him. 

"It was a good experience to see that the 
world is not just this area and that people 
lave different lifestyles, that people live 
differently in different areas of the United 
States," said Sommers.

Williams gains world- 

Gary, Ind., was home to the famous 
Jacksons and also home to cross country 
runner freshman Anthony Williams. Now 
Williams has not gained world-wide recog- 
nition like the Jacksons, but he has gained 
recognition in his own way. He has set 
numerous records that could gain him 
world-wide recognition. 

Some may wonder what made Williams 
so outstanding; records usually speak for 
themselves and what follows were a few of 
Williams' accomplishments. Williams was 
ranked second in the nation in the one mile 
and half mile. He was the first black to win a 
state cross country championship in the 
United States, which he did his senior year 
of high school in Indiana. 

He held the five-mile record at Butler and 
took first place in the Region at the Butler 
County Invitational. 

It all began for Williams his eighth-grade 
year at Edison Middle High School in Gary. 
His gym class was asked to run one lap 
around the track under 59 seconds; 
Williams ran it in 58. The coach then told 
Williams he should run track. 

"I was always interested in basketball," 
said Williams, "but I entered my first meet, 
won it, broke two former cross country 
records and added two new ones to 
Edison's records that year." 

Williams might be looking for an oppor- 
tunity to compete in the Olympics after he 
graduates from a four-year college. 

"Hopefully, yeah," said Williams. "It's not 
a big, big thing, but I wouldn't turn down the 
opportunity to go to the Olympics." 

Not only did Williams run, he also played 
the piano, which he had been doing for 16 

Williams said he does not have many 
idols, but he did look up to Florence Joyner, 
Carl Lewis , and Steve Scott. Williams said 
he had a feeling of why he won most of his 

"I've been told that I don't look like a 
runner. So I guess at the starting line 
runners feel they can slack off, because I 
don't look like a runner," said Williams. 

However, at the tape Williams usually 
did prevail. 

Many have asked Williams why he 
chose Butler when he had offers from 
many other colleges. 

"I wanted to get away from home, meet 
different people, and learn to be indepen- 
dent. I wanted to help out a program. I 
wanted to go somewhere small and make it 
bigger," said Williams.

When Butler County Community 
College Alumnus remember back on their 
college days they will be thinking of all the 
good times they had on campus. When 
their grandchildren ask to be shown where 
grandma went to college there won't be 
any question where to go to show them. 
Grandma will just hop in the car and drive 
down to 901 S. Haverhill Road. Wron- 
go... Grizzly breath. 

Yes, those who attended Butler after 
1963 will show off the Haverhill Road 
campus and most will use a car to get 
there. However, there are those who would 
also have to go down the road to show off 
where they attended El Dorado's college. 
There is one individual who will proudly 
show off both locations, although when the 
campus tour is conducted it will more than 
likely be a parade of bicycles rather than in 
a mini-bus. 

"I was a student here when the school 
was called El Dorado Junior College and 
here I am back once again," said health 
enthusiast Ann Burch. 

Burch started college life back when the 
school was located on West Central 
Avenue and continued her education as 
she traveled around the nation and the 

"I've crossed both oceans by airplane 
and by ocean liner," said Burch. "I've 
crisscrossed this country using all kinds of 
vehicles and I still prefer old 'Terra Firma' 
with my bike connected to it." 

Returning to El Dorado in 1988, Burch 
found that if she wanted to keep making it 
to class she would have to journey to the 
west end of town. That discovery was like 
putting icing on the cake. 

"I'm a health freak. Early to bed, early to 
rise and three good meals a day," said 
Burch. "And I ride my bicycle everywhere I 

That little "old?" lady, all decked out in 
purple, that many students saw peddling 
her bike to school, turned out to be one of 
the most energetic, enthusias- 
tic. ..enlightening people a person could 

Burch had as hectic of a schedule as 
anyone. Rising out of bed each and every 
morning at 4a.m., Burch was on the go all 
day long teaching and taking classes. 

As a student of music and education, 
Burch contibuted to the classes the know- 
ledge and abilities gained through her 
years of experience. 

As a teacher, not only Butler students 
were benefited but so too were the youth 
and the elderly of the El Dorado area. Her 
daily schedule included providing tutoring 
as well as conducting aerobics for an El 
Dorado Christian school. On Sundays she 
could be found doing the same at a local 
nursing home. 

"I beieve in a healthy mind as well as a 
healthy body," said Burch. Glad to be back 
in her hometown she nostalgically said, "All 
of the students and the staff have been 
fantastic to me. I feel as if I were sixteen all 
over again and starting over. I would 
recommend it to everyone. Always 
continue with your education because you 
can learn new things daily." 

"I would love to help any one of the 
students in any way that I can," said the 
energetic grandmother of six. Would you 
believe great grandmother? 

So when Butler students return to their 
alma mater one day to see a caravan of 
bicycles touring the campus, they'll know 
the lady out front is a fellow class- 
mate. ..Ann Burch. Her remedy for grizzly 
breath is a mixture of water and lemon

hat it all boils down to is 
academics; therefore, you as 
students could be found on campus 
sitting at desks, mixing chemicals, 
writing, painting, singing, or study- 
ing your heart out for that big exam 
in order to further your education in 
a chosen field. 

Many of you chose nursing, 150 
of you to be exact. Others of you 
made a decision to pursue the arts 
and still others went for science, 
math or business-related classes. 
No matter what was chosen you 
found new challenges. 

Musically talented students were 
challenged early in the year with 
their first choir and band concert on 
October 1 5. Biology students took it 
upon themselves to start a recycling 

project to better our environment, 
and art students began creating; 
works of art for various shows 
during the year. 

"Every aspect of chemistry is 
challenging because you have to 
work at understanding it all, not just 
one part," said Jason Massoth, 
Rose Hill freshman. "If you don't 
keep up you'll really get lost," he 

Instructors were also faced with 
new challenges, as new faces from 
all over showed up in their classes 

"Teaching is never boring for me 
because the students are always 
different," said Wilfred Pettus, phys- 
ical science instructor.

Help build student knowledge 

Equations, formulas, rules and excep- 
tions to the rules were all part of the learn- 
ing process students were exposed to in 
their math and physical science classes. 

Fifteen instructors offered students the 
chance to expand their knowledge in 
everything from Plant Biology and Physics 
to Fundamentals of Algebra and Calculus 

Some students questioned the impor- 
tance of knowing how to calculate the melt- 
ing point of a substance in chemistry, while 
others were unsure to the advantages of 
being able to graph parabolas and 

"I'm just trying to get through biology and 
then forget it, since it doesn't relate to my 
major," said Korey Howell, Leon 

"I'm just trying to get 
through biology and then 
forget it..." 

These classes are often considered 
challenging by many students. Memoriz- 
ing equations and laws, balancing formu- 
las, and relating different problem solving 
techniques are often mind boggling, yet it is 
part of the collective knowledge acquired 
throughout the long college journey that 
prepares students for their majors. 

Students are not the only ones chal- 
lenged by the math and science classes. 
Teachers also faced pressures ranging 
from trying to explain difficult concepts to 
keeping classes current with the course 

"It's always a challenge to cover all of 
the material in a semester, so that the 
student will be prepared for the next 
course," said Wilfred Pettus, chemistry 
teacher of 23 years at Butler.

Are taken advantage of by students 

Technical hardware and a writing work- 
shop brought students and prospective 
students to campus. Twelve new IBMs and 
a laser printer made the business depart- 
ment more competitive with major 

Business classes appealed to students. 

"It's a popular area. It covers so many 
areas — marketing, secretarial, data 
processing, accounting, business 
management. ..People going into business 
can almost get any kind of training," said 
Howard Clements, head of the business 

The business majors included the tradi- 
tional students as well as students such as 
Sherry Scheuber, a 39-year-old mother of 
two, who came back to school. "I needed a 
job with retirement, benefits and a better 
selection of hours," she said. 

Scheuber had never used computers 
and was surprised at how easily she 
caught on. 

"I found out it's easier after 
you've been out, because you 
want to do it. I feel like I'm 
doing more with my life." 

"I wanted to do this for myself; therefore, 
I'm doing a good job," said Scheuber. "I 
found out it's easier after you've been out, 
because you wantto do itforyourself. Ifeel 
like I'm doing more with my life." 

The addition of the 12 IBM computers 
made the typing room completely 
computerized and finished up two years of 
gradual improvement plans. 

The Creative Writing Workshop, held 
during October, had its largest attendance. 
Over 1,000 elementary school students, 
from the Butler County area, attended the 
opening session and 250 people regis- 
tered and attended the workshop. 

Ninety-three English and literature clas- 
ses were offered each semester on and off 

"There are so many jobs that are 
communication based. Many you really 
cannot hold unless you can speak and 
write well, " said Larry Patton, head of 
humanities and fine arts.

86 Art 


Creativity through sight and sound 

Art is an expression of one's self that 
cannot be described verbally. How then 
can music also be art, when the whole 
aspect of it is to convey thoughts through 
words and melody? This fact didn't seem to 
matter to those participating in painting 
class, ceramics, chorus, or band — all 
showed their creative sides. 

Many changes were seen in the demo- 
graphics of the campus fine arts classes. 
Music moved to the 700 Building and art to 
the 300 Building, which required adjust- 
ments on the part of students and instruc- 
tors alike. 

"This facility has improved our situation 
logistically since we are no longer required 
to share rehearsal facilities between vocal 
and instrumental departments," said 
instrumental music instructor Roger Lewis. 

Where some departments benefitted 
some were hindered. 

"The space is smaller, but it looks more 
like an art department," said Robert Chism, 
art instructor. "We are somewhat limited to 
the size of classes because of the space 
and it's a bit awkward having the gallery 
and the classes in different buildings."

"I would like to be in graphic 
design, or I would love to be a 
political cartoonist." 

A-not-so-new face showed back up on 
campus after being on a leave of absence 
forthe 1989 spring semester. Linda Pohly, 
vocal music instructor returned from Ohio 
where she finished her doctorate degree 
and wrote her dissertation on Welsh choral 

Most students took the fine arts classes 
because of an interest in making careers 
out of their talent. 

"I would like to be in graphic design, or I 
would love to be a political cartoonist," said 
Brian Countryman, El Dorado sophomore. 

Countryman was also the recipient of 
Warren Hall Kutts III memorial sholarship, 
for which he held an art showing of his own 
in the gallery. 

Throughout the year many creative 
minds set out to move people with visual 
and musical mediums all of which were art 
enjoyed by all.

With state-of-the-art 

The vocational program offered more 
than just auto mechanics and auto body. It 
also offered data processing, welding, agri- 
culture, drafting and electronics. The voca- 
tional programs enabled students to take 
courses that were directly job related. 

The program offered a one-year certifi- 
cate and a two-year degree program. 

"Cooperative programs were also 
offered in Office Education and Marketing/ 
Management. A cooperative program 
included field study in which students work- 
ed and received on-the-job training as part 
of theircredit, "said Howard Clements, divi- 
sion chairman of business and industry. 

"The auto body class is great. 
I'm really learning a lot while 
fixing my own car." 

Vocational students received hands-on 
training with state-of-the-art equipment. 
This included equipment such as a frame 
machine with lasar beam measuring, four- 
wheel alignment, electronic computer 
engine analyzer, CAD systems with Versa- 
CAD and AutoCAD, cold wire feed welders 
and plasma cutting machines. In the 
Marketing/Management area, computers 
are used in the decision-making process. 
The equipment in the Office Education 
area is 100 percent computerized. 

The auto body and auto mechanics 
class worked on students' vehicles and the 
only cost to the students was the price of 
the parts. 

"The auto body class is great. I'm really 
learning a lot while fixing my own car," said 
Brian Bohl, Eureka freshman.

Through the mind and body 

The social, recreational and behavioral 
science department was an area where 
students could enroll to expand their 
minds. Students could enroll in psycholo- 
gy, abnormal psychology, human sexuali- 
ty, infant development, child care admi- 
nistration, agency administration, law 
enforcement, religion courses, and history. 

While you were expanding your mind 
you were also improving your physical self. 
Students could enroll in karate, aerobics, 
swimming, bowling, roller skating, golf, 
volleyball, tennis, soccer, and physical 

Students also learned about the forma- 
tion of the government, history of the world 
and the gross national product. 

"They are interesting classes 
because we learn what cops 
go through on duty by watch- 
ing films my other class 
we have to design our own 
police system." 

Students often found their psychology 
classes interesting even though it was a 
required course. Some psychology clas- 
ses performed experiments on individuals, 
recorded the results and came to their own 

"I think psychology was a great class 
and it was my favorite class. I enjoyed the 
different experiments and activities we did 
in the class," said Sherry McCray, Park 
Forest, III., sophomore. 

In the police science courses students 
learned what it took to be a police officer 
and the aspects of police administration. 

"They are interesting classes because 
we learn what cops go through on duty by 
watching films and in my other class we 
have to design our own police system," 
said Greg West, Wichita freshman.

Vital signs of the nursing program 
increased dramatically. One hundred fifty 
students enrolled, and at the beginning of 
the fall semester the nursing department 
moved to a larger area in the 1 00 Building. 

"We moved the department because of 
the increase in students and NLN (National 
Licensure for Nursing) accreditation 
requires that the nursing arts lab be sepa- 
rate from the classroom," said Pam Evans, 
nursing instructor. 

"We have been admitting 40 students 
and we increased to 48 students in the third 
semester to allow for articulation of LPN's," 
(Licensed Practical Nurse) said Janice 
Jones, nursing instructor.

"We only take the best 
students with the highest 
grade point averages." 

Available openings in this department 
are limited. The admissions criteria has not 
changed, but only the best get into the 
program, according to Jones. 

"We only take the best students with the 
highest grade point averages," said Evans. 
With such high standards the nursing prog- 
ram is one of the best around. 

"They've really increased the quality of 
their program and they have a high 
success rate at the boards," said Lora 
Lagree, nurse recruiter. 

The nursing field was not just for the 
young who were fresh out of high school. 
Karen Stilwell, Eureka sophomore and the 
mother of two came back to school to get 
her nursing degree. 

Stilwell could not pinpoint for sure which 
semester of the nursing program was the 
most difficult. 

"As far as I'm concerned, they are all 
hard, but I wouldn't trust a nursing program 
that everyone thought was easy. Nursing is 
a stressful profession and part of our train- 
ing is to learn to cope with stress. I feel you 
have to love nursing to do it," said Stillwell.

Reaching Out and Up at McConnell 

Amid the orderly business of military life, the 
scream of jet engines, the olive green of 
government-issued khaki, lay the classroom 
solitude of Butler's McConnell Outreach 

Think on-campus security was tough? Try 
parking in a No-Parking zone on base! The MPs 
were not as accommodating at McConnell Air 
Force Base. Students needed a vehicle pass to 
enterthe base, proper identification to showthe 
sentry and a Butler student vehicle sticker to 
attend classes. 

Students schooled at McConnell were diffe- 
rent than the average Outreach student. 

"Our priority is to service the active-duty mili- 
tary," said Robert House, director of Butler's 
McConnell program. 

The unique part of this program, besides its 
location, would have to be the new scholarship 
program introduced this year for military depen- 
dents wanting to take a crack at college for the 
first time. 

The program was conceptualized by Educa- 
ton Services Officer, David McConnaughhay 
and Rodney Cox, Butler president and former 
president of the Community College of the Air 

"Our priority is to service 
the active-duty military." 

The program has two target goals. One goal 
is to acquire job transferable skills since military 
families tend to be transient and to provide clas- 
ses which meet the general education require- 
ments for an Associate degree. 

"The good we are doing for the enlisted 
personnel by giving scholarships to the lower- 
ranking military wives will greatly improve the 
quality of life for Air Force families. Research 
shows that enlisted personnel with Associate 
degrees are being promoted faster than their 
contemporaries without degrees. Our scholar- 
ship program is one-of-a-kind in the United 
States and exclusive to this branch of the armed 
services," said Cox. 

Justasthe Air Force was on the leading edge 
of new technology, Butler was there providing 
the quality education necessary to be a forerun- 
ner of future success stories. Future minds were

Reaching out to the non-traditional 

Diversity and innovation were two words 
that best described Butler's Outreach 
Program. With seven counties being 
served, a vast panorama of human life 
made up the diverse enrollment of the vari- 
ous Outreach facilities. 

A total of 3,135 students enrolled in 
Outreach programs at four sites in Wichita, 
two sites in Emporia and one each in Rose 
Hill, Augusta, Andover, Remington, Eure- 
ka, Madison, Marion, Peabody, Council 
Grove, Cottonwood Falls, Hillsboro and 

"Butler has one of the best Outreach 
programs in the state because of the inno- 
vation — we should be proud of it," said 
Mary Ann Christensen, adult basic educa- 
tion director. 

"We aim for different audiences. We 
have specialized programs for firefighters 
and postal employees. We have two 
special offerings on-site for vocational/ 
technical students. In addition to these 
specialized programs our intent is to offer a 
full curriculum throughout our service 
area," said Sharon Fox, Flint Hills Outreach 

"Fifty percent of these women 
anticipate going on to a four- 
year college in order to 
complete their degrees." 

Most instructors at Outreach sites are 
full-time teachers in the local school 
districts according to Fox. Forthe most part 
students were predominately female and 
the average age was 38. 

"Fifty percent of these women anticipate 
going on to a four-year college in order to 
complete their degrees and in most cases 
the females are trying to reenter the job 
market in search of a better-paying job," 
said Fox. 

Every Outreach site had its own 

"There are basic guidelines, but each 
site is as individual as the students who 
attend. Each site seems to have its own 
personality; for example, classes like 
aerobics that are popular at one site have 
not caught on at other sites," said Fox.

ou were given the opportunity to 
broaden your mind and body through 
1 5 different organizations. It was you, 
the individual, that helped the various 
organizations grow by offering fresh 
ideas, donating your time and showing 
your support. 

Becoming involved in at least one of 
these organizations brought endless 
opportunities and challenges for those 
students seeking to further them- 
selves. Whether the challenges were 
meeting deadlines for the Lantern, 
performing for crowds of sports fans as 
a Honeybear or singing enthusiastical- 
ly as a member of the Chamber Choir- 
all required serious commitment to 
work. Because of dedicated students 
joining efforts with other students like 
themselves, many organizations found 

"It is easier to get to know new 
people if you get involved. Students 
who don't get involved really should, 
because there's something for every- 
one," said Paige Wilson, Augusta 

sophomore cheerleader. 

Every organization representee 
Butler in a unique and different way. 
The Student Activities Council, for] 
example, worked to gain more studenl 
spirit and involvement by planning' 
dances, cook-outs and games durinc 
the Homecoming weeks, while the 
Delta Psi Omegas met daily with inten 
tions of promoting support for the 
drama department. It was the theatre 
which provided entertainment for the 
entire campus and the community. 
Whether organizations donated time 
money or simply educated students ir 
a particular field-all played an impor 
tant part in giving individuals opportuni 
ties to specialize in an area of interest 

"You become more a part of college 
by joining an organization. Being ir

room. It's also meeting all dineren 
types of people," said Dean of Student; 
Ev Kohls.

Leaders. Pioneers. 
Intellects. All of these 
can be used to describe 
the two organizations 
Student Leadership 
Council and the 
Academic Excellence 
Challenge Team. 

Pioneers, that is what 
SLC members were. The 
newly formed SLC was 
once Student Activities 
Council. SAC was only 
responsible for planning 

"SLC was designed to 
merge with other activi- 
ties on campus to serve 
the interests of the 
students," said Rebecca 
Johnson-Kuntz, SLC 

Johnson-Kuntz said 
before SLC the separate 
groups on campus went 
their separate ways but 
now they have a place to 
come together to work 
on common goals. 

SLC's first year was a 

bumpy road but being 
pioneers they expected 

"If SLC is going to be 
successful, we are the 
ones that will have to do 
it," said Rich Miller, 
McPherson sophomore, 
SLC's activities 

Intellects, that would 
be a fair assumption of 
the Academic Excel- 
lence Challenge Team. 
AEC originated in 1985 
and was created to 
showcase the scholastic 
talent of community 
college students. The 
program was a natural 
outgrowth of HIGH Q 
which is at the high 
school level and compar- 
able to College Bowl 
held at four-year 

"This year's Academic 
Excellence Challenge 
Team is the strongest 
one the college has 

fielded with four team 
members who have 
previous HIGH Q and/or 
AEC experience," said

Miller, McPher-

takes seriously. 

"It takes a lot

tion to do the job 
right," said 

Once a member of 
the track team, 
Miller now gives 
all of his time to 
his responsibil- 
ities with SLC. 

"I believe you 
can do a few 
things ok or one 
thing very well, " 
said Miller .

SLC sponsor, said 
of Miller, "He is 
one of the hardest 
workers I have 
seen, he has a lot 
of enthusiasm." 

Miller's devo-

A cting 




Acting. It took skill and 
talent. Not everyone 
could do it, and those 
who could had to prac- 
tice, more than just once 
ortwice, but many times. 
Each actor or actress 
had his or her own way of 
getting into character 
before each 


"I like to be alone 
before a show. I sit and 
think 'Okay, this is the 
situation I'm in, this is 
how I react, and this is 
what I want to do.'" said 
Stuart Bogle, freshman. 
"But that's hard to do 

because there's so much 
going on. I'm really a jerk 
before a show." 

The drama depart- 
ment presented two 
shows during the first 
semester, Our Town and 
Holiday. Our Town was 
a story about life. During 
the turn of the century, in 
a small New Hampshire 
town, a couple, George 
and Emily; played by 
John Carlon and Diana 
Hull, grow up together, 
fall in love, get married 
and then during child- 
birth, Emily dies. 

"I think what was most 

surprising to me was that 
it was harder for the 
students acting to under- 
stand what the play was 
about. Everybody thinks 
it is a real simple play to 
do, but it's not," said Phil 
Speary, director of both 

Holiday was a class 
production. Many of the 
students who were in 
Our Town were also in 
Holiday. That made 
double work for those 
students. Not only did 
they have their regular 
classes and activities, 
but they also had lines to 
memorize for both plays. 
That caused some prob- 
lems in Holiday with 
memorizing lines. "Holi- 
day was real difficult to 
memorize in the first 
place," Said Speary. 

The students in the fall 
plays were pushed and 
pulled in all directions but 
they all came together 
for the final productions. 
Their hard work paid off 
and they receied rave 
reviews from the Lantern 
and the audience both.

Doing it All 

Attending four 
to five-hour play- 
rehearsals, going 
to school full 
time, being 

pregnant, and 
having your 
husband in basic 
training, during 
the first few 
months of pregnan- 
cy are trying 
events. However, 
if you put all of 
these things on 
one person, at one 
time, you would 
have El Dorado 
sophomore, Yevon- 

ne Gorman. 

A month and a 
half before her 
husband was to 
leave for basic 
training Gorman 
found out she was 
pregnant . 

"It was awful, 
being sick, and not 
having anybody 
there with me . " 
said Gorman . 

By keeping 
herself busy, 
Gorman was able to 
keep her mind off 
other things. She 
was involved in 
all the theatrical 
either on or off 
stage . 

In the produc- 
tion of Our Town, 
Gorman playedMrs . 

Gibbs . In order to 
disquise her 
pregnancy, Gorman 
would spend at 
least 30 minutes 
before each show 
arranging and 
rearranging stuf- 
fing to make Mrs . 
Gibbs appear plump 
instead of 

pregnant . 

Although Gorman 
was unable to act 
in the last play, 
she was the stage 
manager and was 
able to return for 
the musical . 

Gorman said that 
she did pretty 
good most of the 
t ime . Keeping 
busy was the key 
for her.

and Delta 

A like 

What did the organi- 
zations of theatre arts 
and the marketing/ 
merchandising depart- 
ments have in common? 
More than one might 
think. The student orga- 
nizations of Delta 
Omega Chi and Delta 
Epsilon Chi have more 
than the name Delta as a 
common denominator. 

Delta Chi Omega was 
the fraternal order of 
students in the theatre 
arts and the oldest 
student organization on 
campus. Delta Epsilon 
Chi was a student club 
for those students inter- 
ested in careers in mark- 
eting, merchandising, 
and managing. 

Although the arts and 
the world of business 
might seem as unlikely a 
combination as oil and 
water, they both shared 
a common purpose of 
promoting camaraderie 
between students shar- 
ing similar career goals. 
These student organiza- 
tions gave their 
members a chance to 
meet other students and 
professionals in their 
chosen fields and 
provided the added 
bonus that came from 
participating in an 
outside interest related 
to their majors. 

This not only looked 
good on transcripts, but it 
didn't hurt on a resume 

"Businesses look for 
three things from a 
perspective employee: 
first, they look for educa- 
tional background, 
secondly, they look for 
job-related experience, 
and finally, if the 
students were involved 
in outside activities relat- 
ing to their majors. By 
being involved in Delta 
Epsilon Chi, that's a plus 
for any resume," said 
Kevin Belt, faculty advis- 
er for the group. 

However, this was 
where the similarities 
ended. Delta Epsilon Chi 
was business orientated, 
combining the book 
learning of college 
studies with the practical 
application in the profes- 
sional world. The 
purpose of Delta Epsilon 
Chi was "to develop 
future leaders in market- 
ing and management," 
said Belt. 

The purpose of Delta 
Chi Omega was to 
support all theatre activi- 
ties on campus. Delta 
Chi Omega also 
managed to preserve the 
primitive Greek tradi- 
tions of the fraternal 

"It's the only group on 
campus, that I know of, 
that returns to, in a very 
genuine way, the fun that 
has captured the 
nostalgic essence of a 
bygone era. They really 
have a collegiate feel 
that I only understand 
when I look at my 
mother's yearbooks," 
said Bob Peterson, 
theatre instructor. 

While Delta Epsilon 
Chi was implementing 
their major advertising 
campaign for their 
Strategic Business Unit, 
and thinking ahead to 
state and national 
competitions, Delta Chi 
Omega was having a 
party on the eve of the 
Miss America pageant 
and having their annual 
thanksgiving dinner for 
the fraternal family. That 
was not to say that the 
thespians only had 
parties because some- 
times their fun was seri- 
ous business, such as 
the many civic and char- 
itable functions they 
were a part of. 

But whether it was 
marketing, partying, 
competing, or planning 
the Spelvin Award cere- 
mony, both clubs served 
a common goal: Having 
pleasure doing busi- 
ness. 'The bottom line is 
they had a good time," 
said Peterson.

for the 


Preparing for a future 
in the professional busi- 
ness and health care 
worlds were the main 
objectives of the Phi 
Beta Lambda and the 
Nurses Club. Both orga- 
nizations focused on 
educating their members 
in areas relating to their 
selected majors and 
would-be careers. 

The Phi Beta Lamb- 
das specialized in busi- 
ness networking and 
were taught valuable 
skills concerning busi- 
ness and industry. The 
seven-member organi- 
zation busily prepared 
for the state and national 
conferences by taking 
entrepreneurship, skill 
and typing tests. 
Competing on both the 
state and national levels 
were the organization 
members' main goals. 

"Phi Beta Lambda 
was originally organized 
to help bridge the gap 
between school and the 
business world. By 
competing at confer- 
ences, we're bettering 
our knowledge of busi- 
ness affairs. And in that 
way, we will be more 
prepared to compete in 
the business world," 
said Mike Norstrom, 
Galva freshman, presi- 
dent of the organization. 

The Nurses Club 
provided education on a 
different level. The 
club's main interests 
were to foster an overall 
positive attitude 
concerning health care 
and to present future 
responsibilities involved 
when becoming a nurse. 
The club of 15 members 
was involved in various 
fund raisers, sponsored 

a campus bloodmobile 
and actively participated 
in the state and national 
conventions. During the 
Christmas season, the 
club arranged food 
baskets for the needy 
within the community. 

"I've had many 
wonderful nursing exper- 
iences while being the 
president of the Nursing 
Club. The support given 
by all the members is 
one great part of the 
club," said Michele 
Bushey, Augusta 

Both organizations 
shared a common goal 
and purpose that gave 
each of their members 
experience for their 
future careers. Whether 
members of either orga- 
nizations will someday 
be dressed in business 
suits or white uniforms — 
both will have a solid 
background, and a better 
understanding of what 
the "real" world has to 
offer them in their 
selected occupations. 

"Phi Beta Lambda is a 
good organization to 
meet people, set up your 
own business network 
and compete against 
other students across 
Kansas and the United 
States," said Donna

The Butler 
County Nursing 
serves an impor- 
tant purpose in 
keeping the nurs- 
ing student 
active in the 
community, such 

as the blood 
drives. Another 
important func- 
tion is to keep 
the students in 
touch with lead- 
ers in the nursing 
world, to stay on 
the edge with the 
latest laws, 
changing tech- 
nology, evaluat- 
ing nursing 
curriculum and 
requirements .

Association is a 
liason between

The sweet peace- 
fullness of sleep is 
suddenly interrupted 
by the blare of an alarm 
clock. It is 5:00 a.m., a 
time when most 
college students are 
still sound asleep. But 
not the ag students. 

Those in show 
management took 
turns rising before the 
sun to go out and do 
the livestock feeding, 
no matter what the 
weather was like. 
Others on the judging 
team would get up 
early to leave for a 
contest . These 
students not only had 
early mornings, but 
they also had late 
nights. Often times 
they did not drag in 
until nine or ten from 
their workouts, which 
were eight to nine hour 



sessions of judging 
livestock. Coming 
home at those hours 
did not seem too late 
unless there was 
homework to do, more 
chores to finish, or the 
house to clean. 

Putting in 20-25 
hours a week in work- 
outs was not unusual 
for members of the 
judging team, which 
was under the direction 
of Blake Flanders, and 
the team was ranked in 
the top 10 nationally 
and remained in the 
top two statewide, with 
Colby being their major 

Even though the 
Show Management 
was fairly new, it grew 
rapidly under Jim 
Thomas, who was also 
a student trying to 
finish up his degree. 

Thomas had been in 
the real-world end of 
management for 
several years, but 
enjoyed the chance to 
teach what he had 

Show Management 
taught the students 
how to take their 
animal from the begin- 
ning to the finished 
product. The course 
taught them about 
nutrition, health, diffe- 
rent breeds, different 
feeds and other 
needed information. 

Show management 
helped manage area 
shows, such as St. 
Fair, Jr. Livestock, and 
the Beef Expo, all in 
Wichita. The class was 
in charge of different 
areas for each show. 

"When we go to 
these shows, we work 
from 4 o'clock in the 
morning to 10 to 11 
o'clock at night. We 
work hard, but we play 
hard too," said 

Although the ag 
department may have 
gotten flack from diffe- 
rent areas, they stood 
on their own. By gain- 
ing new people and 
new ideas the ag 
department gained the 
power it needed to 
grow into a major area 
at Butler.

it well. 

Nace was a 
member of both the 
Judging Team and

he was only a 
freshman, he 
competed through- 
out the year. At 
the Denver contest 
Nace took first in 
individual swine 
judging, 10th in 
sheep and his team 
placed 13th over- 
all . He also 
traveled to St .

it 1 akes 

Producing an annual 
involves more than simp- 
ly the publication of 
pictures and words. 
Designing layouts, inter- 
viewing people, choos- 
ing pictures and typing 
copy are but part of the 

While all staff 
members contributed to 
the making of the year- 
book, it was the writers 
who were responsible for 
recording events accu- 
rately and creating an 
overall image of the 
book. So, what did it take 
to be a good writer? The 
Grizzly was full of writers 
with what it took. 

"A writer must have 
the ability to talk to 
people, be a good Engl- 
ish student and have a 
creative mind," said 
Shely Johnston, year- 
book editor. 

But these positive 
characteristics are not 
the only things that make 
a good writer. Dedication 
is one other important 
factor in being a 
successful writer. 

"Journalists, like 
athletes, must often 
sacrifice, their own time 
to make what they do 
best worthwhile. There's 
a lot of time and dedica- 
tion involved in writing a 
story and making each 
one unique," said Kristey 
Slyter, a freshman from 

The job and position a 
writer must fill was often 
a very difficult task. The 
writer must make the 
story enjoyable and 
satisfying to himself as 
well as the reader. 

"It's hard to choose 
what angle to take while 
writing because not 

everyone finds the same 
thing interesting," said 
Toni Bills, Eureka 

While the staff writers, 
editors, and photogra- 
phers worked together, 
each had his own 
personality and style to 

add to the annual. Jane 
Watkins, yearbook 
adviser was always 
there to smooth over the 
rough spots when the 
pages came down to 

"We had a staff of 
many diverse personali- 
ties. It was important to 
pay attention to detail, to 
ask good questions and 
make the normal seem 
extraodinary," said 

Each staff writer was 
required to have seven 
interviews for every arti- 
cle. These stipulations 
added weekly deadline 
pressures. While there 
were six major company 
deadlines a series of 
constant deadlines kept 
writers and photogra- 
phers alike on their toes 
and the level of tension 

The Grizzly staff 
combined its efforts to 
give you a book full of 
memories to last a life- 
time. Many late hours of 
pasteing layouts, 
correcting copy and 
brainstorming new ideas 
were all part of producing 
a yearbook you would 
be able to enjoy over and 
over again.

Editor' s angle 

Shely Johns- 
ton, ye a r bo ok 
editor, spent 
many long hours on 
and off campus 
putting together 
the yearbook. 

Being the editor 
came with lots of 
and some times 
even sacrifices. 
"At deadline 
time I usually put 
in around 30 hours 
of work, but I 
didn ' t give up 
anything other 
than sleep and my 
time to study, " 

said Johnston. 

Being the 
editor was a job 
Johnston never 
regretted, and 
felt she would 
never give up.

C ready e 

at Work 

Creativity can be 
expressed in many 
ways. One way is 
through the use of the 
mind. A second way is 
through the use of the 
hands. Two different 
organizations that use a 
combination of these are 
The Lantern and art club. 

Both organizations 
are beneficial to the 
campus. The Lantern, 
which is the school's 
newspaper, informs the 
public on all recent and 
upcoming events that 
affect all areas of the 

Art club sponsors the 
school art sale and 
invites guest artists to 
speak to the club about a 
special area of art. 

Each organization has 
about 15 members. 
Each member excels in 
their own area. For 
instance, on the news- 
paper there are different 
types of editors, mana- 
gers and staff writers. In 
art club people may 
specialize in jewelry 
making, drawing or 

Each organization 
takes atrip once a yearto 
learn more about the 
area in which they are 
working. Art club went to 
Santa Fe and visited the 
museums. The students 
studied the different 
styles of jewelry. 

The Lantern went to 
New Orleans for a 
National College Media 

Convention. They 
attended various work- 
shops to learn different 
aspects of the journalism 
field. After all of the clas- 
ses were over for the day 
the students were allow- 
ed to go sightseeing. 

"Singing in the bar in 
New Orleans and 
popping the gator with 
my fellow journalists was 
a total blast. However, I 
was disappointed when 
Katie didn't wrestle the 
Cajun Gator Lady. The 
classes were interesting 
and I learned a lot. It was 
so great to go to New 
Orleans to learn but to 
have fun also," said Liz 
Bardin, El Dorado 

The two organizations 
differentiate in the fact 
that a student does not 
have to be in any art clas- 
ses to be in art club just 
have an interest in art. 

"Even though 
students don't have to be 
in art classes about 99 
percent of them are in art 
classes," said Pam 
Fullinwider, president of 
art club. 

To be on the news- 
paper staff a student 
must be enrolled in a 
journalism course. 

"Students must be in a 
journalism class to learn 
about the style of writing 
and layout for a news- 
paper, also so that we 
are sure they get their 
assignments," said

Brian Country-

both The Lantern 
and art club. He 
received the 
largest Warren 
Coutts scholar- 
ship that was 
awarded for art 
plus he received a 

full scholarship 
for The Lantern. 

Countryman was 
the illustrator 
for the newspap- 
er. He drew the 
cartoons for the 
paper . 

"At least right

myself doing this 
for a living and 
enjoying it," 
said Countryman, 
El Dorado 

sophomore .

The lights, the 
moves, the smiles, the 
variety, the music, 
added up to great 
evenings of entertain- 
ment. The College 
Choir, Headliners, 
Chamber Choir and 
Footlights each had its 
own unique style, yet 
they usually performed 
during the same 

College Choir was 
different than the other 
groups because it was 
an actual class open to 
any student wishing to 
sing in a choir group. 
Directed by Linda 
Pohly, the College 
Choir studied vocal 
styles such as sacred 
and classical. 

Membership in 
Headliners was deter- 
mined by audition. 
Made up of 16, the 

Headliners performed 
mostly pop and show 
tunes. Dance routines 
incorporated into their 
repertoire required 
long hours of practice, 
but looking good was 
important to everyong. 

"It's great to perform 
in front of an audience. 
It is so rewarding to see 
them smile and enjoy 
themselves," said El 
Dorado freshman 
Christy Zang. 

The Chamber Choir, 
directed by Valerie 
Lippoldt-Mack, was 
made up of 16 
students, and like 
Headliners, member- 
ship was by audition. 

Unlike Headliners' 
modern "jazzy" upbeat 
style, the Chamber 
Choir concentrated on 
Renaissance madri- 
gals, classical and 

vocal jazz. Besides 
performing in El 
Dorado, the Chamber 
Choir went to 10 diffe- 
rent high schools. 

New to the program 
was the ensemble 
called Footlights made 
up of eight women and 
directed by Pohly. The 
women put in as much 
practice as the people 
in Chamber Choir and 
Headliners, and 
performed alongside 
with them. They did a 
variety of styles from 
sacred to pop to classi- 

Although the vocal 
department seemed to 
have varied styles of 
performing, they all 
operated like a big 
family. Most of the 
concerts contained 
performances by all 
the groups, so that no 
one group received 
more praise than 

"Being in this group 
brought me closer to 
people and taught me 
to appreciate music 
more," said Chamber 
Choir freshman Dow 
Wilson. "Everyone in 
the group is real close 
and we're just like one 
big family."

They dwindled in, by 
ones or twos, occasion- 
ally there would be a 
group of three. They 
adjusted stands and 
placed music within 
reach. Instruments were 
put together piece by 
piece with care and 
precision. Pitches were 
checked and adjusted. 
Finally instructor Roger 
Lewis counted off and 
the Butler Big Band was 
ready to pep up the 
crowd , just like they did 
for every home game. 
Both the Concert and 
the Big Bands enter- 
tained audiences 
throughout the year, with 
concerts each semester. 
However, a new twist 
was added, the Big Band 
featured a soloist for the 
first time. 

"It was really fun. I 
was just really honored 
to be able to sing with the 
band," said Michelle 
Erwin, Augusta fresh- 
man, featured vocalist 
for the Fall Concert. She 
performed "My Funny 
Valentine" with the band. 

In order to practice, 
Erwin went in on her own 
time during band 

A vocalist in the 
band's performance was 
not the only thing new. 
Over three-fourths of the 
bands members were 
new. With only three 
returning members, 
there was plenty of room 
left for new talent, and 
that is just what took up 
the space. 

But even talent 
requires work and effort. 

"The freshmen are 
among the students who 
have been most willing to 
work and apply them- 
selves of all the students 
I've had. They have a 
really good attitude and 
have worked very hard," 
said Lewis. 

Most of the new 
members were 
recruited. This was a job 
taken on by the entire 
band, not just Lewis. 
They did run-out 
concerts to area high 
schools in an effort to 
interest high school 
juniors and seniors in 
Butler's instrumental 

The bands had their 
share of the work just like 
any other program, but 
they did enjoy some fun. 
The Big Band hosted the 
Second Annual Butler 
Jazz Day in the spring, 
and took a trip to Los 
Angeles during Spring 
Break to visit various 
educational sights as 
well as places such as 
Disney Land. 

The bands may have 
had a young majority, but 
the leadership shown by 
the returning members 
was visible and needed. 
Through their success it 
is evident that followers

Dreams come true 

Planning and 
dreaming is something 
everyone does, but 
unfortunately for most 
it usually turns out to be 
just dreams. However, 
a few people turn their 
dreams into reality. 
That was the case with 
Wichita freshman, 
Kevin Edwards. 

Edwards was not 

the typical freshman. It 
had been about 13 
years since he 
graduated from high 
school before he 
decided to continue his 
schooling. While 
attending Bethel, 
Roger Lewis, Butler's 
band director, 
approached Edwards 
offering him a scholar- 
ship to be the band's 
string and electric bass 

"It was something I 
always wished I could 
do but never managed 
to get it done," said 
Edwards about learn- 

ing the bass. When he 
was 21 he finally got it 
done and has been 
doing it since. 

"The bass is a really 
hard instrument to play 
by itself. It is the found- 
ation of the music, but 
must be accompanied 
to sound the best," said 

Edwards was a part 
of the band for two 
years and planned on 
being the foundation 
for a while longer.

Behind every great 
performance lies hours 
of dedicated practices. 
Performances, whether 
being chants, cheers or 
dance routines, provided 
sparks of enthusiasm 
among both athletes and 
fans. From half-time 
entertainment shows to 
pre-game pep rallies, the 
Honeybears and the 
cheerleaders practiced 
their performances in 
advance, so as to 
present them with the 
utmost style, grace and 

"All the cheerleaders 
are very dedicated and 
we practice really hard 

together. We have fun 
while we practice. But 
when it's time to practice 
our stunts, we become 
serious," said Tolli Cook, 
El Dorado freshman. 

The Honeybear dance 
team began their season 
by attending a Superstar 
Camp in Dallas, Texas. 
The squad claimed 
many awards, including 
the Shining Star Award 
for the best team discip- 
line and attitudes. The 
team, consisting of 23 
members, made perfor- 
mances at the Kansas 
State Fair, Worlds of 
Fun and at the home 
athletic games. 

The cheerleaders 
created spirit and 
support among crowds 
of Grizzly fans during 
football and basketball 
games. The eight 
member ensemble also 
attended camps in prep- 
aration for a season filled 
with shouts and cheers. 

"Being a cheerleader 
gave me the opportunity 
to make many fun road- 
trips and to be recog- 
nized by the school. On 
the other hand, I lost lots 
of sleep and homework 
time. But, it was all worth 
it," said Stephanie Healy, 
Augusta sophomore. 

Hard work and long 
practices provided the 
backbone for these two 
squads that showed their 
spirit and helped 
generate support from 
others, as well. 

"These are exception- 
al young ladies that 
volunteer their time and 
efforts to represent the 
college and the 
community at its best,"

Being the lead- 
er and role model 
for 22 Honeybears 
was a challenging 
for captain 
Sophie Turner,

and choreograph- 
ing routines, 

keeping the 
squad's appear- 
ance uniform and 
practicing each 
evening were but 
part of the 
demands met by 
Turner . 

"I'm really 
pleased with the 
team' s overall 
performance and 
efforts. I espe- 
cially want to 
thank my offic- 
ers," said 


Turner' s 
loyalties to the 
squad went far 
beyond practices 
and perfor- 
mances . When 
problems arose 
or social events 
occur red — she 
made herself 
available .

your classmates were wiping the sleep

pounds of weights in the training room. 

Even though athletes received 
special recognition, the element that 
largely went unrecognized was the 
hard work and long hours it took to 
excell and thus be noticed. You left, 
your family and friends at home so you 
could make a success of yourself. 

"There's nothing else I'd rather be

As a member of the Kansas 
Jayhawk Community College Confer-

11 teams of men and women in 
competition. "Two reasons individuals 
come to a junior college is to get their 

grades in order and make progress 
academically while at the same time 
advancing their athletic skill level to be 
competitive at the four-year school,

Combining new ideas and favorite traditions proved to be just what 
Homecoming needed. 

omecoming - a Success 

The old and the new came together to 
make Homecoming a success. Rebecca 
Johnson-Kuntz, sponsor of Student Lead- 
ership Council, rated student participation 
better than anytime she could remember in 
the past nine years. 

This new-found success could be 
credited to the SLC and the activities they 

New ideas included dress-up days and a 
"mini-olympics". The most popular event, 
the talent show, was also a new addition. 

"There was a lot of rowdy enthusiasm for 
the mini-olympics, and a tremendous turn 
out for the talent show," said Johnson- 

The winners of the talent show and the 

seventy-five dollar prize were Anthony 
Criner, Wichita sophomore, and Steve 
Young, Kansas City freshman. Criner and 
Young performed "The Art of Serious 

"We just made noises with our mouths. I 
think that is a talent," said Criner. Apparent- 
ly the judges agreed! 

Favorite traditions such as Homecoming 
royalty and the battle on the gridiron 
continued in their success. 

Organizations and teams nominated 27 
candidates which were narrowed down to 
the final six. Queen Sophia Turner, Augus- 
ta Sophomore and King J. T. Collor, Over- 
land Park freshman, were crowned at the 
Homecoming game. 

Homecoming week ended on a 
successful note with Butler defeating: 
Dodge City 17-7. 

Dodge City scored on its first possession 
causing the Grizzlies to make a defensive 
change. A change made for the better. 

"The defense put the pause on Wilhite, 
Dodge City's quarterback, and he got frus- 
trated," said Carlos Nevins, Hill City fresh- 
man, a Grizzly defensive player. 

By creating new traditions and keeping: 
old ones students found a whole new way 
to celebrate Homecoming- as a success.

The football team combined, unity, togetherness, and pride to take 
them ... 

bove and Beyond 

To say the football season was a 
uccess would certainly be an understate- 
lent. After a pair of disappointing early- 
eason losses, the Grizzlies stood at a 
lediocre 3-2. From that point on, however, 

was a different story. 

Butler ran off seven consecutive wins, 
icluding two loss-avenging victories in the 
layoffs over Coffeyville and Garden City 
) capture the conference championship. 

The Grizzlies capped off the season by 
emolishing Iowa Central 24-0 in the Royal 
rown Cola Bowl in Cedar Falls, Iowa. But 
) the players, the conference champion- 
hip was their greatest achievement. 

"After we won the conference champion- 
hip, it was like we expected to win the bowl 
ame," said Gar Ball, sophomore from 

"It was like the icing on the cake, 

because we were relaxed, the pressure 
was off, and we just had fun. It topped our 
season off, and it was a good finish for the 
sophomores," echoed Shane Mullen, 
Arkansas City sophomore. 

Lost in all the excitement was the fact 
that the success Butler enjoyed came 
under the direction of a man in his first-year 
as Butler's head coach . . . Tom Saia. 

Coach Saia came to Butler from Hutch- 
inson Community College, and from the 
moment he set foot on campus, began 
preaching unity, togetherness, and pride to 
his ball club. Perhaps coach Saia's great- 
est attribute, however, was the consistency 
and stability he brought to the football prog- 
ram in general. 

"Coach Saia set the example of integrity, 
hard work, and tough-mindedness. That's 
what made the team what it was this year. 

What Saia and his staff set into the team 
was a 'never say die' attitude. Gutsy is the 
term I would use to describe this team," 
said Rodney Cox, college president. 

To Coach Saia, however, it's all part of 
the job. 

"I am very fortunate to be associated 
with the great tradition of Butler County 
football. We have All-Conference and All- 
American players, but the team concept 
won games for us, and we hope to continue 
that philosophy into the '90s. You can't 
have a team concept if the players don't 
have good character. The players adopted 
the team concept, and we stuck to it, and 
we want to make sure we never lose sight 
of what we are trying to accomplish here. 
The big thing is to help these kids academi- 
cally as well as athletically," said Saia.

Teamwork, goals and support led the volleyball team to the ... 

est Season Ever 

Due to lots of teamwork and support 
from one another, the volleyball team had 
the most successful season in the history 
of the school. With a record of 25-15-1 the 
team showed they had what it took to be 
victorious and to prove not only to them- 
selves but to everyone else that they could 
be successful. 

"The season went really well. This was a 
great group of gals. They played great 
together as a team and they were such a 
fun and hard working group to be around," 
said Coach Tammy Wohlgemuth. 

Setting goals was part of the strategy 
that the team used in making theirseason a 
successful one. Without the whole team 

working toward the same goals they would 
not have had any expectations for 

"Our goals were to play to the best of our 
abilities and make it to the Region VI tour- 
nament. We may not have made it to the 
tournament, but we did play tough, so we 
did accomplish the goal," said Kim Gauld- 
ing, El Dorado sophomore. 

Due to the winning season, the volley- 
ball team received more support than they 
had in previous years. 

"The support was excellent by some of 
the student body and occassionally 
members of the faculty would ask how we 
did. I remember seeing some of the faculty 

members at away tournaments," said 
Missy Woodard, El Dorado sophomore. | 

Teamwork, goals and support were all 
key elements in providing the volleyball 
team with a good attitude. This good atti- 
tude provided the team with a successful 
and winning season. 

"The reason we did so well this year was 
the way we worked together as a team. No 
one person was highlighted throughout the 
season. As a team we had good attitudes 
and didn't let personal lives influence our 
games," said Woodard.

Though their friendships may not endure the test of time, their 
memories of one another surely will. 

oals and Good-byes 

Interceptions, tackles, downs, and 
victories accumulated into a winning 
season as the Grizzlies battled their way 
to become conference and bowl champs. 
Each player searched within himself to 
find the desire and determination that 
would help the team reach its ultimate 
goals — conference and national 

Grueling practices, winning attitudes 
and supporting fans aided the team in its 
quest for conference champs. Unfortu- 
nately, two early-season losses disquali- 
fied the teamforthe National Bowl Game. 
However, both the offensive and defen- 
sive teams finished a successful season, 
placing twenty team members on First, 
Second, and Honorable Mention All- 
Conference teams. Among these twenty 
were four who placed on Ail-American 

Among these outstanding football play- 
ers was a group of young men who were 
part of the number-one defensive team in 
the conference. These young men shared 
friendships that went far beyond the play- 
ing field — these were friendships that 
endured two years of victories and 
defeats, as well as changes in schools, 
coaches and rules. 

These gladiators also came from 
diverse backgrounds. For example, 
Boynton Beach, Fla. sophomore Alex 
Molina's fatherwasfrom Argentina. While 
Overland Park sophomore Terry Moha- 
jir's father originally came from Pakistan. 

Closer to home was Stilwell sophomore 
Denny Johnson. Whether backgrounds 
were Kansan, Muslim or Spanish, these 
men had no trouble fitting into the group. 
The camaraderie that was formed as 
teammates sharing a common goal — 
defensive football — helped develop 
long-lasting friendships. 

"I know when I leave Butler that I'll miss 
the good friends I have made on the 
team," said Mohajir. 

These athletes not only shared the 
field, but they also shared apartments and 
classes. Their similar senses of humor 
often livened parties and gave energy to 
mellow college classes. They traveled in 
packs; they tutored those within the group 
who fell behind in studies and they 
donated their homes as regular party 
spots. The "group" was virtually insepar- 
able from the first to the last semesters 
spent together. 

"Those football guys were close. If you 
messed with one, you had to deal with the 
others," said Ev Kohls, dean of students. 

The football teammates created a 
special form of respect for one another, 
making their friendships all the stronger. 
They endured both physical and emotion- 
al pains together, and they shared the 
advantage of always having a friend near- 
by, considering there were 55 players on 
the football team. 

"We had some really great athletes on 
our team. Everyone seemed to support 
one another," said Brook Phillips, Rose 

Hill sophomore. 

"When one teammate got down on 
himself, the rest of us did our best to bring 
him back up and encourage him to keep 
trying," said Scott Dennis, Rose Hill! 

Laughing over each others' dancing 
techniques, comparing who had the best 
athletic abilities and giving each other 
humorous nicknames were but part of the; 
many memories teammates made. Fromi 
Sly-dog to the terrorist, these new names: 
symbolized friendships that could take: 
criticism meant only in good fun. 

"We dogged each other all the time. 
But that's only because we were so close, 
and we never took each other seriously," 
said Mark Slyter, Augusta sophomore. 

When the football season finally came; 
to a close, and the final exams had been' 
taken — it was finally time for many of 
these friends to say good-bye. Some 
would continue their football careers at 
other colleges, while others would return' 
to their home towns and seek employ-, 
ment. No longer would the "group" ever bel 
together again — sharing the same 
dreams and goals. Instead, all would go 
their separate ways, to different states 
and different lives. The special camar- 
aderie they shared, however, was not in 
vain. Though their friendships may not 
endure the test of time, their memories ot| 
one another surely will.

buried consecutive three-pointers and 
other team members racked up more

Homecoming excitement was moved from 
the gym to the Redcoach Inn. The Home-

than any remembered in the near past. 
Students gathered for a time of dancing, 
socializing and celebrating. 

Prior to Saturday's main events, the

Basketball Homecoming 131 

Recruiting coaches, trainers, and people off the street to practice; a 
new coach with new ideas; and lack of players and support were 
obstacles the womens basketball team overcame by... 

etting Down and Dirty 

The womens basketball team compiled 
a winning record despite playing with only 
eight members for much of the season. 

"Five players quit and two players 
became ineligible. It was rough scrimmag- 
ing or doing anything in practice when 
there were only four players on a team," 
said Cece Rettiger, Strong City 

Practices remained fairly balanced as 
long as the right people came along. 

"We had to recruit coaches, trainers and 
people off the street in order to play five on 
five," said Shelly Thornburg, Hoyt 

The squad consisted of four freshmen 

and four returning sophomores. All of the 
sophomores played for Coach Spence last 
year, which was his first at Butler. 

"Coach Spence is a lot more relaxed 
with our team this year and his patience 
level has definitely increased. His new atti- 
tude has helped my confidence as a play- 
er," said Cheryl Lancaster, Salina 

Each team member and the two coach- 
es set goals before the season started. 

Coach Spence's goals were getting in 
the playoffs, winning twenty games, and 
establishing a respectable program. 

"By the end of the season the team had 
won a respectable 65 percent of their 

games. There was a great deal of talent' 
and character on this team according to 

"The team was exciting, upbeat and 
hungry to win. They worked harder to over- 
come adversity than other teams I've 
coached," said Spence. 

Coach told the team at their first summer! 
scrimmage that this year's motto was 
JUST DO IT. For eight women basketball 
players that's just what they did. Noj 
complaints, no alibis, no bad attitudes — 
hard work and determination got the job]

Each player contributed an invaluable amount of effort and support 
that made each victory possible, 

earn Unity Never Died 

Strong sophomore leadership, close 
team unity and self-motivated players were 
unmistakable qualities that aided the 
men's basketball team into yet another 
winning season. Determination never died 
on the court as the Grizzlies hustled for 
every loose ball, played unselfishly on 
offense and encouraged teammates 
throughout every game. 

Nationally ranked Hutchinson was to be 
the Grizzlies one major obstacle. Defeating 
the Blue Dragons 87-86 on the first meet- 
ing, Butler proved itself a highly- 
competitive ball club. Teams of lesser abili- 
ty, however, created a few set-backs for 
the Grizzlies. Fort Scott, Conner State and 
Allen County were among the teams that 
defeated Butler, yet helped spark more 
determination within the players for conti- 

nual improvement. Injuries among the 
guards caused even greater set-backs. 
The team persevered, however, and the 
injuries soon healed. 

With nationally ranked super-athletes 
such as Herbert Jones and Val Barnes 
leading the way, the Grizzlies saught a 
series of goals to be reached one step at a 
time. Capturing the conference, region and 
national titles were three goals that each 
team member took very seriously. 

"Team togetherness is important for us 
and should help us reach our goals to win 
conference," said Tony Johnson, Wichita 

Packing in the fans, the Grizzlies played 
courageously win after win. Each player 
contributed an invaluable amount of effort 
and support that made each win possible. 

"We're not a team overflowing with* 
talent. So, in order to win games we have 
to play harder than everyone else, espe- 
cially on defense," said Mike Schreiber; 
Overland Park freshman. 

Head Coach Randy Smithson and 
Assistant Coach Mark Nelson led their 
team into a season full of success due to 
hard work and sheer determination. 

"This is a close team that wants success. 
These are kids that come from good back-: 
grounds and have good hearts. All of these 
quality young men help to make a quality 
program," said Smithson. 

A quality program, indeed, gave specta- 
tors and opponents alike a taste of basket- 
ball at its very best.

Mens Basketball 135 

Fans cheered many teams on to victories, while other teams jour- 
neyed the road to success alone. 

ing in the Shadows 

Ambition, dedication and perspiration 
were contributing factors in developing 
successful athletic teams. Winning teams 
drew full-capacity crowds eager to cheer 
"their team" on to the bitter or glorious end. 
Not everyone that found success, howev- 
er, reached the limelight that they may or 
may not have deserved. Instead, many 
became lost in the shadows of more domi- 
nating players, teams or sports. 

Winning performances allowed many 
athletes to achieve the recognition and 
honor that helped promote greater self- 
confidence and endurance during the long 
seasons of competition. Other teams 
possessed the same qualities that led to 
success, yet the fans did not follow. These 
teams, whether they were the womens 
basketball or mens golf team, journeyed 
the road to success alone. 

Dean of Students Ev Kohls began the 
womens basketball program in 1975. 
Although fans have steadily increased over 
the years, the womens team remains to be 
overshadowed by the impressively 
talented mens team. 

"I feel that the womens basketball team 
is just as exciting to watch as the mens. Our 
team always plays better when there are 
supporting fans that get into the game," 
said Tina Tunick, Calhan, Colo, 

Throughout history and to this present 
day, womens sports have never received 
an equal amount of attention or media 
coverage verses any mens team. Grizzly 
women successfully competed in cross 
country, volleyball, basketball, tennis and 

The volleyball team had its best season 
record ever, which may have, in turn, 
boosted ticket sales. The cross country 
team, both womens and mens sent their 
teams to the Nationals, and one runner 
from each team made the Ail-American list. 
These two sports are finally on their way to 
becoming big spectator sports, not only 
due to their latest achievements, but 
because of the exciting sports being 

Womens teams are not the only teams 
often left out in the cold. The tennis, golf 
and track teams experienced less campus 
and community support as well. Perhaps 
these non-contact sports received less 
recognition because they were more 
individual-orientated than team-orientated 
sports. But for whatever reason, these 
were athletes that endured the same tough 
practices, yet soley for themselves and the

team — not for hopeful fans. 

"I think that the womens and mens 
tennis teams share equal advantages. 
Because our games are usually away or 
during class time, I do not feel it's the 
students' fault for the low crowd population. 
I don't think that tennis receives much 
support from the administration, but we did 
get uniforms for the spring season," said 
Janie Fugitt, El Dorado sophomore. 

"The cross country team is finally draw- 
ing crowds, which really helps. The prog- 
ram is still building and people are begin- 
ning to notice us," said Pam Ferguson, 
Emporia sophomore. 

Some sports, however, were unable to 
receive any limelight, because the teams 
were never formed or the athletic program 
was dropped. A wrestling team was once 
considered being instigated at Butler, 
however, because of the cost and interest 
level within Kansas, the decision of acquir- 
ing a wrestling squad was dismissed. 

Countless state wrestling champions and 
participants roamed the college campus 
during the fall and spring semesters. If a 
team would have been formed, Butler 
might have found another dominating 

"I was planning on attending Butler 
anyway, but when I heard a rumor that the 
college was getting a wrestling team, I was 
really excited and I wanted to try for a scho- 
larship. Now I have a scholarship where I 
video tape the Honeybears," said Joe Hill, 
Burden sophomore. 

A womens fast-pitch Softball team once 
was part of the athletic curriculum on the 
campus. The program survived up untit 
1982, and because of the lack of interest 
and the difficulty in recruiting players, the 
program was finally dropped. 

"It wasn't the school's fault that the prog 
ram was dropped. At the time it was difficul 
finding girls who wanted to play fast-pitcr 
and who were good enough," said Debbie 
Sawtell, womens softball coach. 

Different athletic teams invariably drev\ 
different amounts and types of support 
The football program, because of havinc 
the largest seating capacity, drew t he 
greatest profits from ticket sales. While 
volleyball, mens and womens basketbal 
share the same gymnasium — men? 
basketball had the largest attendence 

"I believe that it'll be the next generatior 
for womens sports. Kids will be the offspr 
ings of many women who played high 
school or college ball, and the support wi! 
grow," said Ev Kohls, dean of students 

Until that new generation, women an< 
even some mens teams must continue tc 
endure their rivalries without the grea 
support that other teams seem to receive 
No one can be fairly blamed for the lack o 
interest in each sport, one can only ques 
tion why. Perhaps some players, teams oi 
sports will always dominate others. O

now will be the ones playing in the

The mens and womens tennis teams linked their success to experience 
and re cords from previous years. 

earns Show Success 

The way mens and womens tennis 
measured their success was to compare 
records with last year's teams. After plac- 
ing third in last year's regional tournament, 
the mens tennis team wanted another shot 
at the title. The womens team, however, 
was waiting for a chance to improve on last 
year's Jayhawk Conference finish. 

The men felt with only the top two teams 
being eligible for the National tournament, 
the Grizzlies had a definite goal. 

"We would really like to raise our game a 
notch this year and make a trip to Nation- 
als." said Lee Craddock, Topeka 

Joining Craddock were sophomores 
Shane Bealmear and Eddie Cabana. 
Freshmen included Steve Dickson, Bran- 
don Pierce, Brian Fankhauser, Billy 

Forrest, Tyce Jones and Helali Ziaul. 

With the addition of these five freshman 
to a strong base of sophomores, the team 
heightened expectations for the spring. 

"Last year we felt a little inferior to John- 
son County and Cowley County but now 
we believe we can beat them at nearly any 
position," said Bealmear, Garden City 

"As long as we keep progressing until 
the Regional tournament, we feel we can 
place ourselves in Nationals," said Dick- 
son. Springfield, Ark., freshman. 

The women had three established letter- 
men returning and two freshmen newcom- 
ers and looked strong in five divisions. 

Returning sophomores included Janie 
Fugitt, Michelle Moreno and Brandie 
Niedens. Freshmen talent included Dana 

Geiman and Denise White. 

Although it was hard to compete for a 
conference title with only five players, the 
team felt they would be near the top when 
Regionals were over. 

"We feel like we have a team that could 
place very high if we had a sixth player," 
said Niedens, Dodge City sophomore. 

"We have practiced more in this off- 
season so we are hoping it will payoff at the 
end of the season," said Fugitt, Farmers 
Branch, Texas, sophomore. 

With the lack of a sixth player, the 
womens team looked more for individual 
achievements and more often than not, this 
put them near the top of tournament leader

included Jason Thornbrugh, Jason Gregg, 
Jason Yates, and Roger Xanders. 

Although the team was relatively inex- 
perienced, expectations to place at the top 
of the conference were high. 

"We know we can win the conference as 
long as we have good play from four or five 
players at each conference tournament," 
said Purslow. 

The team drew confidence from strong 

intrasquad play and fine fall results. 

"Our qualifying rounds are intense and 
we put pressure on each other to pfay 
consistently," said Thornbrugh. 

"We haven't played close to our best golf 
so we know if we do that we have a legiti- 
mate shot at winning the conference 
again," said Purslow.

Men and women make tracks and finish 10th nationally in their... 

ost Outstanding Season 

Cross country posted big names and 
en bigger events by claiming 10th in the 
tion in both mens and womens cross 

At the beginning of the year Head Coach 
irk Bussen said, "In practice I averaged 
r teams five best running scores over 
)00 meters and the scores came out 25 
conds faster than any time last year, 
at's a pretty good indication that this 
uld be the best team I've ever had at 

With talented freshmen like star cross 
untry champ Anthony Williams of Gary, 
Jiana, and state cross country champ 
ke Becker from Downs plus Dennis 
liles, James Dill, Cory Burk, Darrius Gilk- 
and Corby Malik, the season looked 
ght. Add returning sophomores Troy 
mnaway, Kevin Meyers and Letterman 

Jeff Patterson and the team knew they 
would have a great year. 

"After the first two weeks of practice I 
noticed we were already running faster 
than last year," said Dunnaway, Perry 

Returning sophomores dominated the 
womens cross country team. But, they 
were led by freshman June Swisher, the 
only cross country Ail-American produced 
by Butler. 

The sophomores included Sherry 
McCray, Anita Stufflebeam, Pam Fergu- 
son and Brenda Booth. Swisher and Helen 
Christian were the only freshmen. 

The women Grizzlies topped the early 
national rankings at fourth, but by the end 
of the season the women enjoyed 10th 
behind the record breaking 18:08 for 3.1 
mile performance by Swisher.

"I hope I've started something for 
women to continue here at Butler," said 

The men Grizzlies also finished 10th in 
the nation behind the first All-American, 
since 1981, Mike Becker. 

"I couldn't have done it without the train- 
ing and help of my team," said Becker, 
Downs freshman. 

With this being the first time both teams 
have qualified for nationals Head Coach 
Bussen states, "Not only did we definitely 
do well, but we've only just begun."

Cross Country 141 

Hurricanes blew, earthquakes shook, walls tumbled, leaders fell 
and we're still ... 

eeling Aftershocks 

September 21, 1989 — Hurricane Hugo 
swept through Charleston, South Carolina. 
Wind gusts were reported up to 135 mph 
which left in its wake a path of destruction. 

October 17, 1989 — San Francisco, 
California, was rocked by an earthquake 
that registered 7.1 on the Richter scale. 
Damage was estimated at $10 billion and 
killed 67 people. 

"I was at the daycare center working and 
I didn't know about it until my fathertold me. 
I had relatives visiting there and they left a 
day before the earthquake," said Vicki 
Talkington, Cottonwood Falls freshman. 

"I was shocked and sad for the people 
whose lives had been torn apart by the 
earthquake and hoped that their lives 
would soon be back to normal," said Karen 
Bechtel, Olpe sophomore. 

November 9, 1 989 — For the first time in 
28 years, East Germans were free to cross 
the Berlin Wall when the wall came 
tumbling down. 

January 1990 - The capture of Panama- 
nian Dictator Manuel Noriega. Noriega was 
indicted on drug trafficking charges by a 
U.S. federal grand jury in February. 

"The actual capture of Noriega will not 

have much affect on drug trafficking; 
however, the symbolism of the act does 
speak to others that the U.S. is serious 
about controlling drugs," said Diane Shaf- 
er, Wichita sophomore. 

The people of Romania overthrew their 
leader Nicolae Ceausescu. This resulted in 
the gruesome execution of Ceausescu and 
his wife. 

"It makes us realize how fortunate we 
are to live in the U.S. where our govern- 
ment is stable," said Kristin Piatz, El 
Dorado sophomore. 

February 1 990 — Nelson Mandela was 
released from a South African jail after 27 
years of imprisonment. 

Hotelier Leona Helmsley, "The Queen of 
Mean," was sentenced to four years in jail 
plus 750 hours of community service, and 
$7.1 million in fines for tax evasion. 

TV evangelist Jim Bakker was found 
guilty of fraud and conspiracy charges 
brought against him for misuse of public 

"Jim Bakker should have to pay back all 
the money besides being jailed," said Doug 
Will, Wichita sophomore. 

In the sports world, the Oakland Athle- 

tics swept the World Series from the San 
Francisco Giants. 

The city of San Franciso rallied their 
team, the 49ers, to a 55-1 victory over the 
Denver Broncos to win back-to-back 

"How many 49ers does it take to change 
a flat tire? One. If they all showed up it 
would be a blowout," Tammy Mann, Cedar 

Point sophomore. 

The sports world was stunned when 
Pete Rose, the man with the most hits in 
baseball (4,256), was banned from base- 
ball "for life" for violating the league's rules 
against gambling. Another hero had fallen. 

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar left basketball 
after 20 seasons, six NBA championships, 
and 30 individual records. 

Chris Evert retired from tennis to pursue 
a new career as wife and mother. 

Buster Douglas knocked off Mike Tyson 
to become the heavy-weight boxing 
champion of the world. 

The baseball world mourned the deaths 
of baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti 
and long-time player and manager Billy

id you notice anything impor-

roads during February? Did you 
notice all the construction work 
happening on the north edge of 
campus? Did you happen to take 
notice when Ollie Isom was nomi-

the year? Did you notice when 
North Central Associaton of 
Colleges and the Kansas Depart- 
ment of Education evaluated Butler 
giving it the top rating among junior 
colleges, thereby receiving accredi- 
tation for another 10 years. How 
about the sold out basketball game 
against Hutchinson which vaulted 
us into the national rankings. Did 
you notice the cardboard boxes all 
over campus labeled for different

aluminum cans to help the recycling

I really can not believe that I will be leaving Butler. After two 
years of working with the faculty, staff and students I must admit 
that I have loved every minute of it. 

Being editor again did not seem quite as exciting as the year 
before, but the simple truth is that the staff is what makes your job 
worthwhile not the job itself. Long hours, many thoughts and 
total dedication have been poured into this bookto make it what it 
is. The staff needs to be given a big pat on the back and a stand- 
ing ovation for all of its efforts. 

Though we did have our ups and downs and we definitely had 
our differences, I think that every final decision was made with 

;\ f 

you the student body in mind. All of us that were on staff do hope 
that you find the book interesting and informative. 

We tried reaching out to you to give us what we thought was 
important during the year... you. Without each and everyone of 
the faculty, staff and students Butler would not be quite the 
same, and that is why I am going to miss this campus and the 

' r T / ^ I '' I r 

atmosphere of Butler. 

Good luck to all of my fellow staff members each one of them 
deserves great things. All of you made my stay at Butler interest- 
ing, fulfilling and gratifying. 

Always remember that the most important person out there is 
you and although we only spent one year trying to recognize 
that, you should always keep that with you whether you are 
graduating, getting a new job or continuing your education, 
because you are somebody important.
