Letters to the editor regarding 
teachers' salaries poured in daily 

and filled the El Dorado Times. 

Students demonstrated their un- 

happiness in the way teacher ne- 
gotiations were going by painting 

the sides of abandoned vehicles at 

Cook's Towing, while faculty 
picketed Butler Western Center 

and both of the entrances to the 

mam campus. 
Construction began on the 
Hubbard Center only to be ham- 
pered by winds exceeding 90 mph 
which ripped down insulation and 
tiles, scattering them from one 
end of the campus to the other. . .

had no such room.

Traditionally, with the 
start of classes comes the 
end of summer fun. Summer 
parties, camping, skiing, and 
swimming trips, and staying 
up to unreal hours subside 
and minds begin to focus on 
studies, ball games, dances, 
and excuses for being late to 
class. However, as watchful 
eyes witnessed the 
mercury rise past P 
the 100 degree 1 
mark, more than 

seemed a very 
cumbersome re- 

During late September 
some relief sauntered into 
the picture. Cold fronts from 
the hurricane off the coast of 
Hawaii brought cooling 
winds and welcome rain. 
Homecoming activities got 
underway with the majority 

of the students not knowing 
what was going on, and the 
fall sports brought the crowds 
thundering in. All the while, 
48 thousand Butler County 
Citizens watched every step 
we took, or did not take. 

Although enrollment 
was up 6.4%, there was no 
additional parking. In fact, 
the "dead well" in 
the west parking 
lot took up extra 
parking spaces stu- 
dents and faculty 
could have used. 
Instead, Johnathan 
Oil Company 
trucks and rigs shrunk the 
already inadequate space. 

But through it all, the 
students found a way to get 
their homework and studies 
done in time to still have 
their fun and live a some- 
what normal life.

The world has its seven wonders including the 

Sphinz, the Pyramids, and the Grand Canyon, but in 

the wonder department, the Butler campus could 

very well hold its own. 

Copy and layout by Correna Wonser 
Artwork by Kenny Miller 

The queries seemed to fall 
into two categories: those that could 
be answered and those that students 
were destined to wonder about for 
all eternity. 

Some wonders were silent 
ones asked only in the minds of 
students, for example, "/ wonder if 
Lois Friesen and Larry Friesen are 
related ?" 

In truth — no, Lois and 
Larry Friesen are not related at all. 
Although the temptation to deceive 
many times got the best of them. 

"I have often called him 
my little brother and he calls me his 
big sister," said Lois Friesen, English 
instructor. She explained the reason 
for this was because Mr. Friesen 
stood two feet taller than Mrs. 

How about "/ wonder why 
the teachers always sit at the same 
table in the snack bar everyday ?" 

Gayle Krause, 

mathematics instructor, who was 
sitting at the table, turned to Elmo 
Nash, mathematics instructor, also 
at the table and said, "Why EX) we 
sit at this table? Maybe because it is 
the closest to the door." 

"Well, sometimes the sun 
shines in on us through the window," 
said Nash. 

"It's so we can see who's 
coming," said David Longfellow, 
English instructor. 

The many answers to that 

question lead to another, "Do they 
even know ?" 

One question bugged several 
students, some even wondered aloud, 
"/ wonder where the clocks are ?" 
This wonder came about because few 
classrooms on campus contained one. 
A phone call to Buildings and Grounds 
revealed the "no clocks" decision was 
made long ago. 

"The idea was that if you put 
a clock in the classroom the students 
spend half the time looking at the 
clock rather than at the teacher," said 

11 Why DO we sit 
at this table?^ ' 
-Gayle Krause, math 

Ted Albright, Buildings and Grounds 

Ok — so students spend half 
the time wondering what time it was 
and the other half looking for someone 
with a wristwatch. 

The wonders list ranged 
from those questions asked by many 
to some absurd questions of a select 
few. For example, "/ wonder why 
classroom temperature is never 
ROOM temperature ?" Who knew, 
maybe there was an unwritten law or 
maybe it was a theory of education 
that stated, "Students must be 
uncomfortably cold or hot in order to 
stay awake so they can learn ." Yeah, 
that must have been it. 

W onder why teachers sit at the same 
table every day? So do they. Gayle 
Krause, mathematics insturctor, Lois 
Friesen.English instructor, and Elmo 
Nash, mathetics insturctor, sit at the table 
to enjoy coffee and conversalion.(Photo

Students wondered daily about 
classroom temperature. Shorts and 
shivering in August were soon replaced 
by sweaters and sweating in December.

others tried to figure out just what was going on.

surprised," Claudrick said about win- 
ning. "I was also glad I won because 
the Queen got to wear a cape and it 
was freezing cold at the football game. 
Without the cape, I probably would 
have frozen to death." 

Saturday night, the highlight 
of the week took place at Galen 
Blackmore Football Stadium. The 
Grizzlies took on the Garden City 
Broncbusters, but, unfortunately, 
were defeated 13-18.

Purple and Gold reigned in 
the stands and the screaming and 
yelling could be heard blocks away 
as Butler fans celebrated Fall Home- 
coming. Homecoming festivities 
were planned months in advance and 
started days before the crowning and 

Spirit Week Days were held 
the week before Homecoming. 
Monday was Hat and Shades Day, 
Tuesday was Twins Day, Wednes- 
day was Bart Simpson Day, Thurs- 
day was Dress-Up Day, and Friday 
was Purple and Gold Spirit Day. 
However, there seemed to be little 
participation in the activities. "I was 
disappointed with the way the week 
before Homecoming went," JoAnn 
Claudrick, Student Leadership Coun- 
cil secretary, said. Claudrick added 
that the lack of participation was 
probably due to the lack of advertise- 
ment of the activities. 

The Second Annual Talent 
Show was held on Thursday night. 
Steve Young, Kansas City, Mo. 
sophomore and defending champion, 
once again took first prize. This year, 
his partner in noise-making was 
Kwamie Lassiter, Newport News, 
Va. sophomore. As their prize, they 
received $75. 

Six organizations nomi- 
nated twelve Homecoming candi- 
dates which were narrowed down to 
six finalists on Tuesday by the stu- 
dent body. The final vote took place 
in the Student Union on Thursday 
and the winners were crowned before 
the game on Saturday. Troy Adkins, 
Overland Park sophomore, nomi- 
nated by the football program was 
crowned King and JoAnn Claudrick, 
Junction City sophomore nominated 


spirits, and after the game, a dance 
was held in the cafeteria. Mike La- 
german, SLC President, said that 
about one hundred students attended 
and added, "Homecoming dances are 
usually the best-attended dances of 
the year, but I think that we surpassed 
even those standards." 

There was something for 
everyone during the Homecoming 
festivities and a lot of work went into 
the activities. Although low partici- 
pation and the football loss could 
have put a damper on the week, most 
people had a great time.

If students want to succeed they can,because the CIS 
tailors instruction/or unique clientele.

If your house is 
haunted, call Ghostbusters. If 
someone is breaking into your 
car, call 911. If you're having 
trouble passing classes at 
Butler, contact the CIS. The 
Center for Independent Study 
provided students with diverse 
needs the opportunity to get 
help in math, science, lan- 
guage arts, business, study 
skills, and stress management 
through independent study. 

The CIS provided 32 
credit hours, and 60 percent 
was transferable. The seven 
people who work in the CIS 
were paid through institutional 
funds and the Carl Perkins 
Federal Grant Program. 

The CIS originated 
when older adults enrolled and 
needed some extra attention. 
Also, the CIS had flexible 
hours which allowed parents 
who have children and people 
who have jobs to come in when 
it's convenient for them within 
the Center's hours. 

"I enjoy the closeness 
between the instructors 
because they are always 
concerned about the welfare 
of each other... it's like a family 
and we want to be that way to 
the students, so they feel 
welcome," Suzie Van Tries, 
CIS office manager, answered 
to what she enjoyed most about 
working in the CIS. 

Tutors were available 
to help students with classes.

To become a tutor a person 
must have taken the class and 
received an A, been 
recommended by the 
instructor, and been 
interviewed by Marilyn White, 
who was in charge of peer 
tutoring. Tutors went through 
training which included 
watching helpful video tapes 
and learning study skills

that those who take advantage

self discipline needed for 
independent study give 
themselves the best chance for

Starting in June of 1990, construction began on the 
600 Building and continued as classes started and 
students tried to wade past the confusion. The proc- 
ess of improving the appearance of the campus 
seemed to lead to more hassles than first thought.

Plastic trash bags disguised 
the walls, dust covered the card cata- 
logs, books were strung everywhere, 
chairs were piled high and strange 
men in hard hats paced the floor. 

"This is the library?" 

As students may have no- 
ticed throughout the beginning of the 
semester construction had placed a 
slight damper on study space in the 
library as well as the rest of the 600 

June 12 was the official 
groundbreaking ceremony to begin 
the construction and renovation proj- 
ect by Carrico Construction. 

"The purpose of the renova- 
tion is to consolidate student service 
for the benefit of the students and to 
fill the need for increased office 
space," said Director of Buildings 
and Grounds Ted Albright. 

Construction of the Hubbard 
Center and renovation of the Center 
for Independent Study, the library 
and the enclosing overhang was bid 
on as one contract. 

An estimated half a million 
dollars was given to the college by 
Joan Dale and R. D. Hubbard to be 
put forth for the renovation program. 

"The project was paid for 
by an issue of certificates of partici- 
pation which are similar to a bond 
issue. Underwriters then sell the 
certificates in the name of the college 
and those proceeds are held in a local 
bank. The contractors are paid from 
the bank and the college repays the 
trustee bank through two sources 
which are $450,000 of the donation 
by R. D. and Joan Hubbard, and a

remainder of $28,000 per year of 
general funds budgeted by the Board 
of Trustees," said Director of Finance 
Kent Williams. 

The library was redecorated 
during the construction. Books and 
magazine shelves were rearranged 
and new carpet was laid and table top 
computers were installed. 

An electronic library was 
added in the 600 Building which 
linked electronically with collections 
of off campus libraries. 

* * I think the li- 
brarians have done a 
magnificent job under 
a lot of terrible condi- 
tions and everyone 
should take their hats 

off to them. ' * 
—Vice-President Jack 

A vocational library was 
also added so students could obtain 
career choice information, and handi- 
capped services were offered in the 
building as well. 

"1 think that once the con- 
struction is finished it is going to be 
much better for students," said Vice- 
President Jack Oharah. 

The building was schedu led 
for completion Nov. 16. Theofficial 
dedication was scheduled for Nov. 
30. The building was renamed The 
Hubbard Student Center and L. W. 
Nixon Library.

The Mc Fadden family found dorm living to their 
liking, despite delays in furniture deliveries, long 

hours, and uninvited guests. 

Copy and Layout by Cheri henley 

With the addition of the 
new dormitory came the need for 
the Mc Fadden family. Dan and 
Patty Mc Fadden were hired to 
maintain the dormitory and 
supervise the students. Dan and 
Patty moved here from Ellinwood 
where Dan worked as a scuba 
diving instructor and helped with 
security at Barton County 
Community College, and Patty 
worked as an insurance agent. 

"It's been a big 
adjustment. I've enjoyed the time 
I've spent with my kids because it 
gives me more time to spend time 
with them than before," Patty 
replied about the benefits of 
changing her job. Their days as 
dorm parents were long, 
sometimes sixteen hours or more 
not counting the times they were 
awakened in the middle of the 
night about problems between 
roommates and other disputes. 

Dan and Patty have three 
sons Scott 19, O'Brien 13, and 
Timothy 11. O' Brien and 
Timothy lived in the dormitory 
with their parents while Scott 
lived outside of the home. 
"I think the students treat my kids 
normally," Dan said. Scott and 
O'Brien often played ping-pong, 
or pool with students and no one 
seemed to mind or ever think they 
didn't belong. 

It was hard for the Mc

further they did not expect the 
problems they had to face when 
they moved here. Beds, furniture, 
desks, chairs, and other necessary 
items didn't come in on time, 
posing a major problem at the 
beginning of the year. Many 
students didn't have beds or 
dressers when they first moved 
in because of back Sorders and 
delays in shipping. "I think this

Parents often "lay down the law" when it comes to dating. 
Picture it being against governmental law to date or even have 
a boy or girlfriend. This was why Ken Wu, China freshman, left 
China and came to the U. S. 

"When you grow up (in the U. S.) and are twenty or so, 
you have the freedom to meet a girlfriend, to meet any male or

On November 13, a new drug-te sting policy was 

adopted by the Board ot Trustees and almost 

everyone had his own views on the subject. 

Copy and Layout by Kim Mc Nm 

At its monthly meeting 
on Nov. 13, 1990, the Board of 
Trustees unanimously voted to 
accept a new drug-testing 
policy proposed by Rick 
Dreiling, athletic director. 

The new policy would 
require prospective athletes to 
sign an agreement to participate 
in the program before they 
would receive an athletic 
scholarship or be allowed to 

The agreement would 
read that they would participate 
in drug testing for 
amphetamines, cocaine, and 
cannabinoids- more commonly 
known as marijuana and 
hashish. Steroids, however, 
would not be tested for on a 
regular basis because the cost 
is prohibitive. 

If an athlete refuses to 
take a drug test, he or she will 
be put on a two-week 
suspension from his or her sport. 
At the time of a second refusal, 
the athlete will be referred to a 
substance abuse counseling 
program. A third denial will 
result in a two- week suspension 
and the athlete will continue or 
re-enter counseling. Upon the

programs for faculty and all 
activity participants being put 
into action. 

As it became apparent 
that the policy was going to go 
into effect, it seemed almost 
everyone had an opinion. 
These opinions varied widely- 
there were those all of it and 
others adamantly against it. 
Some expressed their opinions 
loudly and others not at all. 

"I feel that we are providing j 
service and giving those athletes with ; 
drug problem an opportunity fo 
rehabilitation. I think that it is th< 
responsibility of an institution to have ; 
drug-testing policy," said Rick Dreiling 
athletic director.

"I believe that we are sending ; 
message: Drugs are not wanted at Butle 
County Community College," said Everel 
Kohls, Dean of Students. 

Kohls said that he felt that tin 
policy was not put into action to catch thosi 
who are using drugs, but instead, serves a 
preventive and rehabilitative means. 

"I feel that this program is mean

"Personally, I'm opposed to it on ; 
constitutional basis. As a faculty member 
I am also opposed to it on the same con 
stitutional basis," Diane Wahto, presiden 
of the Butler County Community Colleg< 
Education Association, said. 

"I'm not opposed to having a polio

"I understand that it is up to the coache< 
to test for steroids and I don't believe tha 
they will do it," Lagerman stated. 

"Yes, I believe drug testing is right,' 
Scott McCalla, athletic trainer, said. 

McCalla said that he felt that the policy 
may be too lenient. He felt that if testing

;hould be made by those directly responsible for those areas. Athletics are 
vhere my energies are channeled," Drieling stated. 

Dreiling explained that the new policy wasn't something out of the 
lue, but had been a topic in the past several years. Drug testing just became 
tost-effective for Butler. 

"We are really excited about the program. The coaches are very 
lappy to see the program finally implemented and are looking forward to

lrugs to find the right path out. For those who haven't been trapped by drug 
lse, it will make them more aware of the effects of drugs," Kohls stated. 

"I would like to see drug testing done within all activities but that is 
)robably an idealistic thought. It would be very complicated," Kohls said. 

Kohls explained that one reason that the athletes would be tested was 
hat there is a drug testing program in the NCAA. By testing here, it is believed 
hat the athletes will be better prepared to go on to bigger schools. 

"I have a hard time understanding why people don' t want to fight the 
lrug problem," said Kohls. 

Ihat's how the faculty feels," Wahto said. 

Wahto explained that she also felt that drug testing costs money that 
vould be better spent on treatment programs and other constructive approaches 
o dealing with the drug problem. 

Wahto also said that before drug testing could be done on faculty 
nembers, that would have to be voted upon by them during negotiations. She 
idded that she would probably quit her job here or any where before taking a 
lrug test. 

"I don't take drugs, but to me, our civil rights are being eroded every 
lay," Wahto said. 

Lagerman went on to explain that he felt that if testing is done in one 
activity, all activity members should be tested, and if faculty is to be tested, 
hen all students should be tested also. 

"I wouldn't cooperate with a drug test because I feel that they are saying 
hat you are already guilty . I think that drug testing means "guilty until proven 
nnocent" and I don't believe in that," Lagerman added. 

"I don't approve of random selection. I think that there should be some 
>roof that someone is using drugs in order to test," Lagerman concluded. 

amples for the tests. 

"It isn't going to be a lot more work for us," McCalla said. 

"Personally, I don't think that people in other activities should have to 
ake drug tests. In athletics, taking drugs is a form of cheating. If you're in 
:hoir, drugs isn't really cheating," 

McCalla also believed that testing for faculty shouldn't be mandatory, 
)ut optional. 

Is drug testing right?

An experienced 
teaching staff and 
students trying to meet 
their graduation re- 
quirements were two 
reasons for an active 
science and math depart- 
ment. The many classes 
offered in both depart- 
ments gave the students 
a wide choice of selection. 
The math classes ranged 
from Contempoary Basic 
Math to Calculus III. The 
science classes ranged 
from General Biology to 
Anatomy and Physiology. 

"I like to teach 
math! We have a good 
faculty; we work well 
together and plan well 
together," said Gayle 
Krause, math instructor. 
Phil Theis, microbiology 

teacher, said he 
continued to 
teach because, 
"I like the 
students! That's 
what's so excit- 
ing, every year 
there's a new 
group and every 
challenges and 
and that makes 
it interesting." 

Many of 
the students that 
took the science 
classes were 
nursing majors. 
The nursing 
students had to 

take most of the science 
classes in order to 

to take at least one or two 
science and math classes 
to meet requirements for 
their majors. 

The classes gave 
students a chance to 
practice their mem- 
oriziation skillsasthey had 
to learn equations, laws, 
formulas, and concepts. 
Science and math classes 
took a lot of study time 
because they required 
continual learning of new

classes, they were 
required so almost 
everyone had to

Four semesters of 
17-18 hours per semes- 
terand an algebra course 
in the summer allowed a 
student to graduate. 
However, most students 
chose to take fewer hours 
at a time because many 
of them were non-tradi- 
tional students with fami- 
lies. Pam Evans, instruc- 

tor, said reality 
made it difficult 
for these stu- 
dents to do eve- 
rything at once. 

In the 
Nursing Depart- 
ment, one could 
not help but no- 
tice the large 
number of non- 
traditional stu- 
dents compared 
to the very small 
number of tradi- 
tional students.

students had 
been out of 
school for more 
than a year.

curriculum," Evans stated. 
"You have to want it (to 
become a nurse) and your 
family has to be behind 
you," said Linda Estep, 
fourth semester nursing 
student from Winfield. 
Estep returned to school 
after herson, now 14, was 
old enough to be left alone. 

"A lot of people 
don't know whatthey want 
to do or don't have the 
funds to do it when they 
get out of high school," 
said Marcia Redmond, a 
fourth semester student 
from Arkansas City with 
children agesthirteen and 
nineteen. "Studying takes 
a lot of time." 

Redmond may 
have spoken for many of 
the students, though, 
when she said, "I always 
wanted to be a nurse and 
opportunity just finally 
presented itself." 

Whatever the rea- 
son, these students were 
courage and dedication.

Paging. ...all Butler 
nursing students to area 

Every nursing stu- 
dent is required to take part 
in a clinical lab in area 
hospitals each semester. 
Participating hospitals in- 
cluded Wesley, St. Francis, 
St. Joseph, and Riverside, 
all in Wichita; Susan B. Allen 
in El Dorado; and Andover 
Health Care Center in 
Andover. While in clinical, 
students spent 1 0-1 6 hours 
per week in hospitals. 

According to Pam 
Evans, lead instructor, first 
semester students began 
with taking vital signs, 
administering bedbaths, and 
taking care of basic daily 
needs of the patient. 
Students applied new skills 
as they learned them. 

Second semester, 
students worked in ped- 
iatrics and obstetrics. They 
gave nursing care to young 
children, mothers in labor 
and delivery, and mothers 
and infants after delivery. 

Psychiatric and in- 
tensive care were included 
in third semester with care 
for the more acute patients. 

semester stu- 
dents provided to- 
tal care for pat- 
ients. During the 
last five weeks of 
the program the 
students formed 
agement teams 
and took care of 
several patients at 
a time. 

Each se- 
mester, faculty 
members as- 
signed students 
to hospitals. 
Each student 
worked in each 
hospital during 
the four sem- 
esters. One 
instructor super- 
vised eight to ten 
students in the 

clinical labs of- 
fered several 
benefits for both 
the students and 
the hospitals. 

For stu- 

dents, the main advantage 
was the chance to work with 
people rather than class 

"We learn a lot of 
skills that are needed to be 
a nurse. There are so many 
things to know and you just 
can't learn them all from 
reading a book," Ginger 
Briggs, second semester El 
Dorado student said. 

"It gives (the 
students) realism. They can 
practice on the computer or 
on the mannequins, butthen 
there's a real person there 
that has a lot of unexpected 
needs. The person doesn't 
just lie there while you're 
giving them an injection," 
said Cheryl Hickert, 

It also gave the 
students a chance to work 
in different nursing areas as 
well as in different envi- 
ronments, which helped 
them make decisions as to 
what they would do after 
receiving their nursing 

The participating 
hospitals recruited nurses 
from the clinical students, a 
move which helped the 
institutions alleviate their 
constant staff shortage.

at the McConnell Outreach

Alpha which shuts down the

second is Bravo, a lesser 
version of Alpha but includes 
security precautions. The 
third level of security , 
Charley, covers normal 
everyday conditions and 
operations. Bravo was in 
effect during the year 
because of the U.S. invol-

keep track of who was sent 
where and how long they 
would be there. 

"We only know of 
those who have had to drop 
a class, " said Fox. 

Besides a few 
civilian complaints because 
of the increased security, for 
the most part few problems 
occurred, considering 
McConnell's position as a 
major U.S. air force base 

"Even though we 
have some reserves over in 
the Middle-East we must still 
remember our priority aims 
which are to provide both 
military and civilian students 
with a quality program at a 
reasonable price," said Fox 

During the first 
semester 122 full-time 
students and 1,068 part-time 
students enrolled at 
McConnell. Second 

semester there were 1 ^full- 
time students and 1 ,066 part- 
time students.

Flexibility and 
adaptability are the key 
characteristics of the 
Outreach Program. 

Students with conflicting and 
hectic schedules found the 
program to be a godsend in 
allowing them to further their 
education. The program 
was designed to allow 
students with full-time jobs 
or families to have the 
chance to receive schooling. 

Jim Edwards, former 
director of Butler Western 
Center, is now in charge of 
the Outreach Program. 
Edwards, a former instructor 
at the college, really enjoys 
his job and the people 
around him. 

"I like change, and I 

like coming back 
home. Things 
don't become 
static here," 
I a u g h e. d

female. At this age, adults 
enjoyed participation. They 
were loaded with 

experiences that related to 
the courses and they were 
willing to share. 

The older students 
usually had more 
responsibilities to deal with 
because of children, or a 
steadyjob. Because of their 
maturity, they were better 
able than traditional 
students to relate to the 
classes and teachers. 

The goal of the 
program was to provide 
students with practical and 
accessible services. 

The program in- 
volved seven counties, 
Greenwood, Sedgwick, 
Morris, Lyon, Chase, Butler 
and Marion.

oes anyone 


Does anyone drive 55 anymore? 

Everyday I drive over 60 miles round trip to school. I'll be 

cruising along, radio blasting, singing, and car dancing. You know 

bobbing your head while using the steering 

wheel as a percussion instrument. Eventually I 

notice about eight cars have passed me. I look 

down to check my speed and the speedometer 

says 61 and by the time I look up again the last 

car to pass me is three miles down the road. 

At first I thought my speedometer was 

wrong, so I felt comfortable driving at a speed 

that seemed to match that of the other 

motorists. A speed that, according to my 

speedometer was 70 to 75. I shared my theory 

of the incorrect speedometer with my brother 

when he borrowed my car. 

"The officer said your speedometer is 

correct," he said, as he angrily returned my keys. Another theory 

discredited by today's technology. 
I began to wonder, did they change the speed limit, or do those 

drivers know something I don't? 

Being the cowardly person I am, I have slowed back down to 
around 60 again and every time a white car pops up over the hill my foot 
leaps off the accelerator as if burned. 

I've been passed by every make and model of 
vehicle on the market, including some no longer 
sold. When possible I pull over to the shoulder 
to let semi-trucks pass for fear of being run 
over. I've been seen in the rear-view mirrors of 
teenagers to, yes, I admit, even senior citizens. 
I have considered getting tags that read, "GO 
ON PASS." I wonder if I could get into Guiness' 
book for eating the most dust. 

It is not that my car won't go 80, and I'm 
barely a third of the age of a senior citizen, so it 
is not my age either. I guess I got the crazy 
idea of driving at or near the speed limit 
somewhere in drivers ed. 

Now I have but one question.

Playing with his friends in his 
hometown Stilwell, Kansas, neighborhood 
may have provided the inspiration for Lenny 
Heffemon's decision to make medicine his 

"I really had a lot of fun growing up. 
All the kids from the whole neighborhood 
would get together. We all did a lot of 
mischievous things as children." Whenever 
anyone got hurt it was always Heffernon who 
would bandage them up. "It was fun and 
really interesting to me. That's why I think I 
will probably go into the medical field. I am 

is where I am headed," announced Heffernon. 

Heffernon reflected further and said, 
"There was one thing I always wanted as a 
child and never got, a horse. When I "asked 
my parents for one, they gave me a 
motorcycle instead." replied Heffernon. 

This disappointment was balanced 
by a memorable event a few years later. 

"My father, who had a dream of drag 
racing that went unfulfilled, decided that he 
would live his dream through my brothers 
and myself. At thirteen, I had never raced 
before. My very first night of racing, I beat 
this kid who had been racing since the age of 

seven and who was undefeated. I won all 
three of the races! It was tremendous! I 
couldn't have done it without my father's 
support," exclaimed Heffernon. 

Heffernon had many activities that 
kept him busy. One of them happened to be 
as a member of the Grizzly football team. "I 
was recruited as a kicker for the football 
team. That is really why I am here. If the 
coach hadn't recruited me I would have 
probably gone to the University of Kansas, 
and given up on football," remarked

students competed fora$1 0,000 grant 
awarded to the person with the best 
business plan and idea for a personal 
business. McClellan used his idea of 
summer storage and made a more 
detailed plan for the business he 
already had. 

McClellan received first place

op his S.O.S. business: "I was really 
suprised to win. But, I'm glad I did." 

The camp was a good

enjoyed it he said. "They gave me 
great ideas and helped me gain a 
better understanding of the business

McClellan wants to try 
something new but isn't sure what at 
this point. He encourages all people 
who have an ideafor a business to go 
after it and try to make a success of it.

Patsy Elpers, Wichita freshman, was a surprise to 
the theater program — but a good one! Elpers was the only 
student in the children's production, "Hank the Cowdog 
and the Curse of the Incredible Priceless Corncob," who 
was not a theater major nor on a theater scholarship. 

ElperscametoButlerbecauseofits nursing program 
and found out about the "Hank" tryouts through friends. 

"It wasthefirsttryouts I'd ever been to," Elpers said, 
"It was my first drama production ever besides a one-act 
play that I was involved in and I loved it." 

In "Hank", Elpers played Missy the Coyote, who 
was the daughter of the Chief of Coyotes. Missy was very 
friendly and a "daddy's girl," according to Elpers. 

"At first, I was really scared about being the only 
one not on scholarship or in the theater classes," she said. 

"Sometimes I'm jealous of the others because they 
know what they're doing and I'm still new at this." 

"The reason I liked this particular production is 
because we were entertaining children," Patsy stated, 
"When I can make people happy, I'm happy." 

Judging by the faces of the children who watched 
the production, Patsy must have been very pleased.

Xother Goose 

The house on Pine Streetseemed 
like a normal house at first glance but 
upon closer inspection one noticed some- 
thing out of the ordinary. It was not that 
four student athletes lived there or even 
that they had a stuffed goose to watch 
over them. More likely, it was that Corby 
Malik, Derby sophomore; Kelly Cook, 
Ellsworth sophomore; Troy Adkins and 
Mike Schreiber, Overland Park 
sophomores, seemed to have an uncom- 
mon bond of friendship and more uncom- 
mon, they had the ability to share and 
had fun doing it. 

The unusual thing about their 
friendship was that they were involved in 
different sports. Although Malik and 
Cook were both active in track, Schreiber 
was in basketball. Adkins was in both 
football and track.

shared an apartment with one of their 
other friends. One of Adkins' football 
friends was graduating, leaving the place 
he had been renting open. He gave 
Adkins first shot at it. Needing to share 
the expense of renting the place, he 
turned to two friends he had met in track, 
Malik and Cook. Schreiber decided to 
stay another year so Adkins let his old 
friend stay with them. Thus began their 
long process of sharing. 

They share everything. If one of 
their cars breaks down they use one of 
the others. They might even share their 
food. They share the chores too, well 
sort of. "We used to have this schedule 
but nobody follows it anymore." Adkins 
said. Cook added, "That's the bad thing 
about being athletes. This place smells 
like a locker room all the time." Agreeing, 
Adkins said, "We come home from school 

and practice too tired to clean. We ji 
want to crash or plop down in front 
MTV and relax." 

The stuffed goose th 
affectionately named Mother Goose hu 
in the living room right above the cou 
as if waiting to swoop down and atta 
any intruders. It was passed down frc 
Adkin's older brother who shot it and h 
it stuffed to hang in his apartment wh 
he was going to KU. "He's graduated 
he gave it to us to protect our house ji 
as it used to protect his," Adkins said 

The guys in the house on Pi 
Street may be unusual but they enj 
themselves. One of these days they v 
leave, so take note: Students who folk 
the lead of these guys will find how mu 
fun life is.

The Campus of Doom 

elcome to 

The quest was to complete atrip 
from one end of campus to the other. 
Starting point: 100 Building Ending 
Point: 500 Building. No problem, right? 

Ah, but once outside the 100 
Building it became clear that this mission 
was more than a problem. As the music 
rose and a whip took the place of the 
backpack, one became not a student 
but an adventurer about to face the 
challenge of The Campus of Doom.

It was a treacherous expedition. 
There was but one sidewalk for the 
adventurer to take, and it was guarded 
by two puffing dragon smokers and 
beyond them a monstersprinklerspinning 
around dousing the sidewalk with each 
pass. To get by, one had to take a deep 
breath of fresh air, dash past the smokers, 
pause to get sychronized with the 
sprinkler, and then sprint to the back 
door of the 200 Building. 

The intrepid adventurer had 
time to celebrate passing the first test 
courage because ahead lay the 2 
Building, dense with students. On 
inside, the adventurer's ey 
automatically squinted in response 
the billowing smoke and dim lights. , 
the door slammed shut behind, a path 
the exit had to be plotted. The dc 
leading out was barely visible throu 
the babbling biology students awaiti

lass. If the adventurer fearlessly pushed, 
lulled, dodged and dashed, the door 
ould be reached. 

Once outside, the largest test of 

aith loomed. There it was — the Jungle

he brave could only go around. Another 

iecision to be made, to go left or right. 

Many chose to go left and were 
mmediately faced with a moral 
Jilemma — to walk on the grass or not. 
Dead grass lay brown and crumpled as 
evidence of those who had gone before. 

Having tracked through the grass, 
Dne then must maneuver around the 
ungle. The roaring, screeching, and 
Dounding of progress added to the 
thunderous shouting of natives from the 
tribe known as construction workers, 
startling many who passed by. 

Once safely past the jungle, a 
light from heaven seemed to shine down

on the door stamped with a large 500. 
Ah, the end was near. 

Once inside, the adventurous 
spirit as well as the shins received a 
blow; a small purple sign taped to a chair 
stated, in short, "You can't go this way," 
thanks to closed basketball practices. 

Only the strong survived to 
complete the quest. 

After having backtracked out the 
deceptive door and journeying around to 
the side, it was then time for the 
adventurer to try again. This time there 
was no sign, only bigger, taller, and more 
casually dressed students everywhere. 

Having maneuvered through the 
forest of athletic-looking students and 
reaching a classroom, the adventurer's 
quest was complete. But only for an 
hour. Then the one must again make the 
journey across campus.

Unless you're a paperboy or a cow-milker, you're not 
likely to be up as early in the morning as Alicia Smith. 

At 5 or 5:30 a.m., most people haven't even started 
dreaming yet. But Monday through Friday, Smith got up before 
dawn for one-and-a-half hour long practices as a member of 
Butler's Honeybear dance team. In addition to daily practices, 
the women must practice on Saturdays if they are performing 
that night. 

Smith is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty from Belle Plaine. 
"It's a small town where everybody knows everybody, and 
everybody knows everything about everyone," said Smith. 

Born in Wichita, Smith lived there until she was three, 
when the family moved one-half mile outside of Belle Plaine. 

Smith came to Butler because it's small and she had 
earned a scholarship that goes with being a Honeybear. 

"I have no idea what my major will be," said Smith. 

Smith lived off-campus in an apartment with asissy. No, 
her roommate isn't a weakling, Sissy is Smith's faithful calico 

Her hobbies include painting abstracts and dancing, 
which she has done since fifth grade. Smith also enjoyed all 
kinds of music, especially classical, jazz and reggae. "I like 
something you can dance to," said Smith. 

Looking down the road ten years from now. Smith would 
like to be married, have at least one child, running her own 
business, and making lots of money. "Also, I would like to live 
somewhere by the ocean, on the beach," said Smith.

Jaking a name 

They're creative. They're fun, 
entertaining and original. They're all 
special and some are about impossible to 
figure out. They can only hold seven let- 
ters and you get two of 'them instead of 
just one. No matter where you go, they're 
around you. It never fails, you pull up to 
a stoplight and one appears out of no- 
where in front of you. You pull in late for 
an eight o' clock 
class and there's 
one parked next to 
you. Not every- 
one has one and 
not everyone 
wants one. What- 
ever the case, 
they're out there 
and they're very 
The past 
couple of years car 
tags have become 
very hip, especial- 
ly to Butler 
students. Special 

tags, hooked to the vehicles of Butler 
students, are all over campus. These car 
tag owners have made a name for them- 
selves by what appears on their automo- 
biles. Hey, there go NansVan, Jul Pep 
and 24U34ME. Just who are these owne- 
rs and just what do their tags really mean? 
NansVan belongs to El Dorado 
sophomore Nancy Foster. Foster drives a 

1986 Ford van. 
"Well, the tag stands for my nick- 
name and the car I drive, a van," Foster 
said. "My husband would always joke 
with me when I called it my van. He 
would say, 'Does it have your name on it' 
So, I bought the tag so I could tell him 

"My dad thought of the idea for my 

special tag. I liked it, so we had 

My Z put on my car. " — Angle 

Corbin, Benton Freshman 

'Yes, I do have my name on it." : 

The tag which reads Jul Pep is 
owned by Rosalia freshman Julie Pepper 
and it stands for her nickname. 

24U34ME belongs to Towanda 
freshman Coby Creed. 

"My truck tag has to do with 
basketball," Creed said, "as in two points 
for the other guy and three points for me." 

Most students 
had some idea of 
what they would 
put on their special 
tags, if they had the 
extra $40 to spend. 

sophomore Maurice 
Williams said that 
he would have his 
nickname put on his 
would-be special 

"If I had a 
special tag I would 
put MOE on it," 
Williams said. "All 
my friends call me Moe. I don't really 
know why they call me that, they just do." 
Another original yet detest- 
able tag idea came from the mind of El 
Dorado freshman Danae Duryea. 

"If I had a special car tag I would 
have HATE KU put on it," Duryea said. 
"The reason? Simple-I just hate KU." 
However, not everyone liked the 
idea of having a special plate. 

"I wouldn't have a special tag put 
on my car," Augusta sophomore Bill 
Ridgeway said. "I think they're very

It'sBergertime. Lawrence freshman 
Karl Wcrtzberger is all smiles as he 
sits on the back of his 1990 Firebird 
Formula. Wcrtzberger received his 
car as well as his special license plate 
from his parents as a high school 
graduation present. Wertzgberger's 
tag Berger stands for his nickname, 
which was given tohim by his football 
buddies. (Photo by Kristy Ross) 

Boo who? El Dorado freshman 
Jennifer Blue, that's who. Blue has 
had the nickname J Boo for about six 
years. "All of the people that don't 
know me don't understand my tag," 
Blue said. "It's kind of a mystery - 1

imners return 

On Nov. 1 4, 1 970, eight very talented cross-country runners 
from Butler took first in the National Championship in Vincennes, 
Ind. Led by their coach Ollie Isom, they became the only team 
from Butler to hold this title. 

Twenty years later, on Nov. 9, 1990, that group and their 
coach came together again, this time on campus. The men 
were older, wiser, and maybe a little thicker around the middle 
than in their cross-country days, but just as enthusiastic. 

Isom, economics instructor; Dennis Patterson, 1970 team 
member; and Mark Isom, Ollie's son; planned the reunion with 
the help of the alumni office. 

The weekend event included a reception Friday night, a 
banquet attended by 82 people on Saturday, and introductions 
at half-time of the basketball game Saturday night. 

"This was a very close-knit group. I feel that to be a success- 
ful team, you must have rapport with each other," Isom said. 

Seven of eight team members returned for the event. Their 
team captain, who was injured and could not run the year of the 
championship, also came. Those team members returning 
were Bob Moreno, Dallas; Keith Wilson, Carrolton,Tex.; Dennis 
Patterson, Leon; Jim Hays, Ellsworth; Abe Serrano, Los Angeles; 
Doug Lee, Wichita; Dwayne Kime, Burlingame; and Jim Knott, 
the team captain now living in Debuque, Iowa.

Isom started the cross-country program in 1 967 and coached 
for 16 years. 

"Of course, the kids who won nationals have to be your 
favorites," Isom laughingly added. 

"I can remember the day they won the championship exactly; 
it was 39 degrees and raining. I told the kids, "We're from 
Kansas and it doesn't matter what the weather is. You're 
running. And they did," Isom said.

To theMiddie East 

servists called out 

Imagine having to leave every- 
thing in your life to travel some odd 
thousand miles to the Middle East to 
prevent Iraqi troops from taking over the 
world's oil supply. Picture having to 
march in 100 some degree temperatures 
dressed in long sleeved uniforms resem- 
bling chocolate chip cookies. Who would 
decide whether one could sleep on the 
cot or the sand? Suppose you were en- 
titled to one shower a week, who would 
decide who would be the privileged ones 
to get to take their weekly shower first? 

The Iraqi crisis was a serious 
matter. In fact American soldiers died as 

a result of Iraqi President Saddam 
Hussein's take-over of Kuwait. 

Butler reservists called to active 
duty were given full refunds regardless 
of when their units were called up. 

Because McConnell Air Force 
Base was greatly affected by Desert 
Shield, many active duty people and a 
few students that were guardsmen 
deployed to the base had to go on twelve- 
hour shift duties. These twelve-hour 
shifts posed problems for student 
reservists, as they had to make schedule 
changes to accommodate their military 

Teachers agreed to adju 
assignments in the event of a call-up 
reserve units in order to keep the studeni 
grades up. One option for reservists w< 
to complete classwork by mail. 

Students were not the only on< 
who faced the possibility of being calk 
up if the situation continued to continu 

"All of us who are retired still ov 
the government if they need us 
President Rodney Cox said. 

Although retired service peop 
may be called, usually only those wl 
have special skills are sent, Cox said

gathered for a tribal ritual to search for 
identity in ceremonial rites of passage. The 
music pounded and the crowd moved to the 
beat, as the youth chose to play with fire. 
Then the night faded and the tribe 
departed. Those who had played with the fire 
faced the possible consequence of colliding 
with reality. 
Drinking and 
driving — 
playing with 
fire. Design- 
ated drivers — 
the way not to 
get burnt. 
According to 
the Oct. 1, 
1989, issue of 
The Oregonian 
of Portland, it 
was estimated 


m 20- 


Freshman Sophomore 

Study by Ruth Engs and David Hanson of 56 universities 

included not just driving. It often involved 
other responsibilities, including being a 
referee, a nursemaid, a babysitter as well as 
the chauffeur. 

"My experience as the designated 
driver involved drunk people who talked a lot 
and couldn't walk very well. I had to carry 
them to the house and put them to bed," said 

Mike Geier, 

the designated 
driver means 
you have to 
make sure the 
people that 
came to the 
party with you 
make it 
home," said 
Natalie Bear, 

Drive while drinking 

Drive knowing they had too much too drink 

that eighty to ninety percent of college 

students drink, while alcohol contributes to 

eighty-five percent of college students' auto 


Designate a driver. An excellent idea 

but one that was not always used. Several 

students said they thought designated drivers 

were cool but they also admitted to driving 

after drinking. 
The task of a designated driver 

Augusta sophomore. 

"Usually if the passengers have been 

drinking, they get a little crazy and start 

yelling and laughing, or distracting the 

driver," said Kevin Ripley, Scranton 


Rites of passage are found in all 
cultures. The ceremony could be successfully 
completed without the fire and the loss of life.

Cultivates Talent 

T orkshop 

With nerves of a negotiator, 
the tenacity of a terrier and the adapt- 
ability of an acrobat, Lois Friesen dir- 
ectedthe Creative Writing Workshop. 

Friesen, English instructor, 
became involved in the workshop in 
1 983, just two years afterthe program 
was originally dropped. 

"I thought it was too good an 
idea, too good a connection among 
college, community and the area at 
large to be stopped. I volunteered to 
organize it on campus if the funding 
could be found to do it again," said 

Little did Friesen realize how 
much work and time directing the 
workshop would take. Ideally Friesen 
would take a break between the 
workshop in progress and the 

workshop in planning. However, this 
was not the case. 

"Planning for CWW is an 
ongoing process. Money is a big 
issue. Because we are on a limited 
budget, it takes some searching to 
find someone we can afford who is 
available and interested in coming. 

Regardless of the time and 
energy it took, Friesen believed there 
was a legitimate need for the 
workshop. She wanted writers of all 
ages to have the opportunity to get 
together and exchange ideas. 

"Creative Writing Workshop is 
open to the public, which includes 
middleschool, high school and college 
students, plus any writers across the 
state who are interested in improving 
their writing skills and gaining access 

to new ideas," said Friesen. 

She wanted young write 
particularly to benefit from tr 
expertise of professional writers. 

"I felt you couldn't wait un 
you were 18 or 19 in college to try yoi 
hand at poetry or fiction. If you a 
really serious about it you need 
start practicing when you're little, 
you are interested in football or ar 
sport, you don't wait until you a 
grown to start to practice. Writir 
takes practice and discipline and th 
spark of creativity needs to t 
encouraged," said Friesen. 

Long hours of planning ar 
constant budget worries paid off wh( 
Friesen saw her plans become real it

More Than You ExpectM 

t Harris 

Tm a nice guy. I really am. I'm 
sometimes loud, rude, crude, and 
socially unacceptable, but I'm really a 
nice guy," Pat Harris, food service 
director says of himself. 

Harris works long hours, puts 
up with students' complaints, hires 
workers to prepare and serve the 
food, makes sure the food was hot 
and out on time, orders the food, and 
manages the snack bar as just a few 
of his responsibilities. 

Harris has received many 
complaints from students concerning 
cafeteria food over the six years at 
Butler. Many people have made him 
look like the bad guy and say that he 
really doesn't do much. Students 
complain thatthere isn't much variety 

in food, the food is sometimes cold 
and the cafeteria sometimes opens 

Harris says, "The kitchen is 
toosmallforthenumberof students 
we're trying to serve. I've got to 
satisfy my supervisors and that kind 
of restricts us from what we can do. 
I would love to give the students a 
lot different menus but we just can't 
afford it." 

Harris listens to those who 
complain. He said he's trying to 
pleasethestudents, by adding more 
menu items. 

"I can't please everybody at 
every meal. Andthat'sthe problem 
students don't understand, because 
I do take things personally when 

they talk about bad food. As long a 
they tell me what they want, I'll try wrl 
I can do it. 

"I think the students know I'm i 
charge and I want them to know the 
can talk to me. I'll bend backwards t 
make sure the students are taken car 
of. That's my job. If the students ar 
happy, I keep my job. 

"I don't think the students realiz 
how much work it is to be a food servic 
director. I put a lot of hours in here ever 
week." "I feel we do the best we can wit 
the conditions we have. We're in 
business that's here to make a prol 
and if I don't make the profit the compan 
likes, then they'll replace me wit 
someone else."

Fulfills Ross 's Dream 

rfect Form 

After being red-shirted his first 
sar, John Ross kicked his way into 
e record books by being selected 
l-America for two years running. 

Ross kicked his longest field 
Dal against Garden City when his 53 
irder sailed through the uprights. In 
jdition he made good on ten field 
Dais in a row and accumulated 160 
Dints in two years. 

"John Ross, as a whole, was 
i outstanding player both athletically 
id academically," said Tom Saia, 
sad football coach. 

Ross, whose grade point 

averaged 3.50, tutored in math in the 
Center for Independent Study and 
planned to become a doctor. 

"I'm planning to go as an 
engineering major and carry enough 
credits to qualify for medical school at 
the University of Mississippi Medical 
School at Jackson, Miss." 

Ross plans to spend his 
remaining two years of eligibility at 
Oxford, Miss., at the University of 
Mississippi in Oxford where he has a 
scholarship as a field goal kicker.

Amuse Children 


Children's theater has been 
r ound tor years, but a recent 
lildren's musical, "Hank the Cow 
og," produced by the Butler Theater 
epartment, brought smiles and 
ughs galore to two to three thousand 
tie tykes in Kansas. Hank the Cow 
og is the main character in a series 
f fifteen books written by John 
rickson. Larry Patton, division chair 
f the English Department and his 
rife Vicki had first read the books and 
lought the character would make a 
eat play forthe ButlerTheater. Patton 
sceived permission from Erickson to 
mte a play based on his books. 

The play was not all laughs 
lough; it seemed there were a few 
ids in almost every audience that 

didn't like it when the bad guys Snort 
and Rip, played by Eric Kaiser, 
Kingman sophomore, and Jason 
Davis, Wichita freshman, appeared 
on stage as the bad guys. 

"I couldn't believe all of these 
'boos when my character came out 
on stage. It made me feel good, 
though, because I was playing the 
badguy and I knewthenthat I must've 
been playing my part well or they 
wouldn't have become so involved." 
said Kaiser. 

Earlier in the fall the Butler 
theater students visited Oil Hill 
elementary teacher Janice Adams' 
fifth grade class. The fifth graders 
asked questions and talked with the 
drama students. 

Adams, Kristi Augusta So. 
Affani, Feras Jordan So. 

The theater group read scenes 
from some of the original books and 
answered questions like, "How hard 
is it to remember lines?" and, "What 
do you do when you forget a line?" 

"We expected the questions 
but I didn't know that we would be 
attending recess. I haven't played 
soccer in over nine years, but it was a 
blast," said Kaiser. 

"I have been involved with the- 
ater for only a year but I love pleasing 
the audience because that pleases 
me. It's great knowing that you are 
capable of making people feel different 
kinds of emotions through something 
as simple as a play," said Kaiser.

Three alumni reunited in the fall to 
repay a debt of gratitude and it turned out 
to be a nightmare. Literally. 
The nightmare formed the struc- 
ture of the play, "Indians," which utilized 
the services of Alisa Bridge, class of '84, 
Tom Mittlestadt, class of '86 and Scott 
Schwemmer, class of '85. 
Bridge, currently in medical 
school, designed the costumes. Mittle- 
stadt, an award-winning technician at the 
1990 Cannes Film 
Festival for 
"Mystery Train," 
dressed the set of 
Schwemmer, who 
works as an actor in 
California, starred 
as Buffalo Bill 
Cody. The trio first 
worked together in 
1985 in the play 
"The Elephant 
"It was a 
experience and I had 
a terrific time. I 
believe they came and gave back to the 
college what they felt they had gained," 
said Bob Peterson, theater director. 
"I came back to do the play 'In- 
dians,' to work with the kids and with 
Bob Peterson. I thought it was a way for 
me to come and give back a little bit to 
Bob, the school, and the community," said 


The production marked many 

firsts. In addition to the return of these 

three theater professionals, it marked the 

first time for a play to go into rehearsal 

before school started. Also Aug. 30 

"It was great working with Scott, 

because he was eager to take what 

he knows and share it with the rest 

of us. " — Jason Davis, Wichita 

freshman (Photo by Don Gilliland) 

signified the earliest opening date in the 
theater department's history. 

The cast started practice Aug. 13 
and worked 10 hours a day the first week; 
the second week was a little less deman- 
ding. It was a hectic schedule and an 
intense production routine. 

This trio proves that it doesn't mat- 
ter where you went to school success is 
possible if the desire is great enough. 

Bridge graduated from Bluestem, 
Mittlestadt from 
Wichita South and 
Schwemmer from 

"It really 
doesn't matter where 
you went to school 
or what you look 
like or how tall you 
are because there are 
so many characters 
to portray you need 
unique looks," said 

"If they're 
interested in having 
a career in theater," 
continued, "they need to get their training. 
There are a lot of scholarships available 
and they need to take part in theater 
whatever part it may be. If it's not acting, 
there's the technical end of it, lights, 
sound or set design. 

"We all felt it was a very positive 
experience and we learned so much from 
trying to teach the theater students," said 

"Anna in 'The King and I' said it 
best. 'If you become a teacher, by your 
pupils you'll be taught," said Peterson.

The world watched, with 
mixed emotions. All eyes 
were on the Soviet Union 
and the United States. It 
looked like peace would 
finally have a chance after all 
the years of animosity. 

As the dust and hype 
settled to a minimal lull, 
peace seemed to be a reality. 
The U.S. and the Soviet 
Union were working 
together, the two super 
powers had shaken hands. 

But the dream of peace 
was shattered to miniscule 
pieces when the U.S. entered 
into war with Iraq to liberate

Servicemen and women 
from across the country were 
called out to defend the idea 
of freedom. As our troops 
began their quest, those they 
left behind had to find ways 
to deal with their feelings 
and thoughts. They had to 
learn to live without 
knowing what was 
happening to their buddies, 
husbands, or mothers. 

The event that had 
haunted our thoughts and

America had gone to War.

Last night Martin 
Fletcher gave me more 
chills than Stephen King 
ever will. 

As I sat in my 
favorite chair in the 
peaceful town of Lat- 
ham, Kan., I watched 
Fletcher, an NBC repor- 
ter in Tel Aviv, break- 
away from his report in 
order to put on a gas 
mask. My blood chilled, 
my jaw dropped and the 
sight of that man on the 
screen will remain etch- 
ed in my mind forever. 

I could barely see 
both eyes through the 
two large ovals of glass 
incased in the black 
rubber that covered the 
upper portion of his 
face. The lower half 
was hidden behind the 
large metal cylinder 
through which he then 
had to breathe. In that 
mask Fletcher no longer 
looked human. 
The thought that he 
looked like something 
out of a B horror movie 
was quickly pushed from 

my mind by the chilling 
reality of his situation. 
As he spoke, the mask 
moved slightly, evidence 
that the muffled voice I 
heard was indeed his. 

The waves of cold 
shock grew inside me as 
Fletcher told of how he 
expected that his 
children were also 
wearing gas masks. He 
went on to explain how 
his family had been 
practicing with the 
masks, making a game 
of it so the children 
wouldn't be scared. 

My eyes 
immediately shifted to 
my children who were 
playing across the room. 
I fought back images of 
them in gas masks as I 
reminded myself to 
breathe and returned my 
attention to the 

As the man on the 
set continued to report 
through his mask I had 
to concentrate to under- 
stand him. He began to 
explain how Israel's 

government had an- 
nounced that the people 
should put on their gas 
masks and get to their 
sealed rooms. Sealed 

My mind reeled - 
during the past week as 
I enjoyed my vacation 
from school, those peo- 
ple were sealing a room 
in their homes in prepar 
ation for chemical war- 
fare. Pictures of familiej 
huddled in small rooms, 
each member wearing 
one of those hideous 
masks, haunted me. 
My mind shouted, 
"Everyone in that 
country has his own 
personal gas mask!" 

Sure, I guess 
somewhere in my mind 
knew that, but the reality 
of it hit me like a brick 

As I continued to 
watch, Fletcher event- 
ually removed his mask, 
Shortly after that we 
learned that there had 
been no chemical war- 
heads involved. A sigh 

of relief escaped my lips, 
and then images of the 
damaged city rushed 
into my mind. At that 
point I had to move to 
another room, although 
the sights and thoughts 
of the eventing still 
buzzed in my head. 

Later as I went to 
bed I wrestled with my 
feelings. I counted my 
blessings and this time 
sincerely felt thankful. 
At the same time I was 
embarrassed by my own 
naive and oblivious 

existence. If I did think 
about war I thought in 
terms of politics and 
But the bottom line is 
war involves people, 
people just like me. 
People serving their 
countries. People who 
have fallen through the 
cracks of politics and 
procedures and 
become innocent

now have become a 
permanent part of my 

My final thoughts 
were of my Mother, me 
and my daughter. Three 
generations. I wonder- 
ed if Mom looked at me 
as she watched Viet 
Nam coverage just as I 
looked at my daughter 
as I watched the Gulf 
coverage. Now we 
share a wish, a wish that 
Sara, my daughter, will 
never have to 
experience the shock 
and fears of war.

As a ghostly veil of fog drapes El 

Dorado, tales of evil and murderous 

happenings come to my mind. The smell of 

death in Iraq hangs in the fog as I close my 

eyes and imagine a nuclear flash. 

During my walk the fog is as a 

manifestation of the uncertainty that hangs 

over our newest war. 


People come through the fog in cars 

and semi-trucks. I want to yell, "Stop, the war 

has started," but to what end? 

Now, safely, in my home, safely, 

returned from the nearest liquor store, safely, 

listening to Dan Rather talk about Americans 

dying in Iraq. 

Desert Storm. Desert Storm. 

Where are my friends? What are their 

thoughts? Why aren't they here saying, "My 

God, what have we done?" 

We should gather. We should talk. 

We should decide. The news reports that 

American military leaders are "very pleased." 

Above me, during my walk, I hear a 

flock of Canada Geese. Life, though sadder, 

goes on. Their cry holds only irony for me, the 

pleasure of their sound is gone. Perhaps 

tomorrow their call will be pleasant to me 


The protests have begun. The White 

House is picketed. 

The weeping has begun. 

Death rains on Iraq. Death reigns. 

The air screams and the cities flash. 

Surely people hide and mothers cry. Around 

the world they cry. 

Before the bombs dropped, the 

missies flew and the young died, people 

asked why. Now people only wonder who will 

win; who will have the upperhand. Only 

history will ask why — and then history will lie.

to call up. She has no 
Security Counsel nor 
any generals to lead 
her meager troops. 

We will get no 
briefings on how she is 
holding up, no State of 
the Earth address. 
The list of casualties 
will continue to grow 

for years to come. 
We are all prisoners 
of this war, for the 
damage done to 
Mother Earth affects 
life as we know it. 
The only objective 
is to stop the 
damage. Defend 
Mother Earth 
because if she 
loses this war — 
so do we.

On Nov. 17, Reservist 
Cheryl Hickert, nursing instruc- 
tor, was notified that in four 
days she would be leaving for 
Saudi Arabia. This would mean 
Hickert would leave her hus- 
band and two daughters, her 
parents, her job and her friends, 
everything familiar, to travel 
to an unknown country for a 
reason that was not clearly 
defined at the time. 

Cheryl left Nov. 20, 
and traveled by bus to Fort Riley 
to prepare for her deployment 
to Saudi Arabia. She was able 
to come home twice before she 
finally left Jan. 27 with the rest 
of her 410th Evacuation 
Hospital Unit. 

Cheryl was based 36 
miles from the Kuwaiti border 
in a hospital that has a capacity 
of 40 beds. Her unit treated 
burn victims. Most of her time 
before the war began she and 
her unit set up beds and 
prepared for patients. 

Cheryl's husband, BJ. 
has adapted well to Cheryl's 
absence. He misses Cheryl and 
wants her to come back as soon 
as possible. "I'm not so scared 
as I am anxious for her to be 
home. I'm proud of her and 
very supportive of her, even 
though I didn't want her to be 
in a war, I always supported 
her bee ause I knew her deci sion 
was made when she signed up 
two years ago." 

"It's just hard to get 
everything done. It's a 



challenge when I work out of 
town during the week and try 
to find time for shopping, house 
cleaning, and parenting." The 
Hickerts had to have relatives 
and sitters come in and take 
care of their two daughters, 
Elizabeth, who is eight years 
old, and Sarah, who is five and 
a half. 

B.J. was very relieved 
that the war ended because that 
meant that Cheryl would be 
home that much quicker. 
Hickert said that, "Cheryl is 
capable, responsible, depend- 

able and if there is an occasion 
when our country needs 
medical reservists then there's 
no other person better than 
Cheryl. She is very loyal to her 
country. I just hate to share her 
with our country. I would prefer 
keeping her to myself." 

B.J. and the rest of 
Cheryl' s family have sent many 
letters and care packages to 
Cheryl. They have sent five 
care packages not only to boost 
her morale but also provide her 
with necessary items that she 
cannot get. Hickert sends his 

wife four or five letters a weeli 
When asked if the we

Teach caring 


Joan Lovensheimer's sociology 
classes didn't go by the book — not 
entirely, that is. 
Lovensheimer was a firm 
believer in hands-on instruction. Since 
Lovensheimer began teaching 
sociology at Butler, her innovative 
ideas have taught her classes perhaps 
the most important concept behind 
sociology class 
has chosen a 
project that it 
would work on 
during the 
semester. These 
projects have 
usually been 
improvement projects. A few past 
projects have included fixing a 
Thanksgiving dinner for needy people, 
making audio tapes for the seeing 
impaired, and donating supplies to St. 
Francis Hospital in Wichita. The 
sociology classes also give 
scholarships to one male and one 
female part-time student enrolled in a 

sociology course. 

The project chosen for the fall 
semester by the 25 students involved 
was a pizza-making fundraiser with the 
money to be donated to Safehouse, a 
women's crisis center in El Dorado. 

The pizza-making was done at 
the First Presbyterian Church in El '• 
Dorado. The class had a good time 
making the pizzas and when the money 

from selling 
them was 
$900 had been 
raised to help 
abused women 
and their 

"The projects 
teach the 
students how to 
interact with others within a group. 
Yet, it also teaches them to be 
independent," Lovensheimer said. 

Watching the students in action, 
it was easy to see that going by the 
book may not always be the best way 
to do things. That's something that 
Joan Lovensheimer has had figured out 
for some time now.

A New Career 

iologist begins 

In the past he worked with 
dioactive laboratory rats; today he 
)rks with biology students hoping to 
old them into "young biologists." 

From the spring of '89 to the 
immer of '90 Bill Lester, biology 
stuctor, tested drugs on radioactive 
ts in a Lawrence pharmaceutical 
m, a job he held at KU to earn extra 
oney for his upcoming marriage, 
lere were two purposes for testing 
e drugs on the rats. One was to see 
lere the drugs would accumulate in 
e body in relation to a human's 
)dy. The second was to see how 
ng it would last in the body before 
sing its effectiveness. In order to 
ick down the drugs' location inside 
e rats' bodies Lester used laboratory 
acers which tracked where the drugs 

accumulated in the rats' organs. 

"The rat job wasn't a job of 
great satisfaction. There was always 
that fear about working with 
radioactivity in the back of your mind, 
but everyone was required to wear 
safety clothes like gloves, boots and 
goggles. I worked there until I was 
fortunate enough to be accepted here 
at Butler," said Lester. 

Lester attended the University 
of Arkansas for four years and 
received his bachelor's degree and 
the attended the University of Kansas 
for three years. While at KU he work- 
ed as a research assistant, and 
received his masters degree. Lester 
then began teaching on campus. 

"At first I was terrified, no, not 
really terrified, paranoid is more like

it," he laughed. "I wanted to be sure 
to cover everything, keep students 
from going to sleep, and try not to 
cover too much material in too much 
depth. I was really worried about the 
whole thing," said Lester. 

Lester does not have any 
definite plans for the future. Although 
he would like to teach at a big 
university, he enjoys his job now and 
doesn't wantto go backto grad school. 

"I like it when I can counsel or 
answer question that encourage 
people and it's like light bulbs come 
on and the students realize that this 
class is relevant to their lives," he 

"I really enjoy my job as a 
biology instructor and think it's pretty 
cool," he said.

"I don't have any

but I'm worried about the 
men and women who are 
fighting. This is one way I 
can show my support," said 
Bell, El Dorado freshman. 

Wearing yellow rib- 
bons to show support of 
troops has a long history. 

Americans first wore 
them during the Civil War 
when wives of Union sold- 
iers wore them until their 
loved ones were released 
from Confederate prisons. 

"Round Her Neck 
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" 
reminded Americans of their 
fighting forces when the 
song was published in 1917 
during World War I. 



Show Support

In 1980, Orlando' 
song became the anthem c

Tell Students Grades 


It's not adown slip and certainly 
is not an up slip and I know that it isn't 
time for report cards already. So what 
is this piece of paper with my name 
and a great big D on it? — Not to fear- 
it is only a six-week progress report. 

The six-week report program 
was started in 1 986 bythe Instructional 
Council which consisted of Division 
Chairs Curt Shipley, Howard 
Clements, Larry Patton, Patricia 
Bales, Tom Erwin, Paul Kyle and Kent 
Williams. Instructors issued progress 
reports on a trial basis for two 
semesters. After it was implemented 
and reviewed it was evaluated by the 
Faculty Forum. The Faculty Forum 
meets once a month for faculty 
members interested in campus- 

related issues. 

The Instructional Council and 
the faculty had taken a good look at 
students' progress and noticed that 
students tend to have a higher 
retention rate if problems are dealt 
with during the sixth week. The 
Council and faculty also found that 
surrounding colleges had 
experimented with this program. 

The program was designed 
with the main goal of retaining students 
with academic or personal problems. 

"It was set up in order to give 
students a chance to do something 
about their grades especially if they 
were having difficulty in a specific 
class, "commented Dr. JackOharah, 
vice president. 

"I believe in the prograrr 
Although I feel that it does need som 
updating, it certainly does have it 
merits. As an instructor as well as th< 
retention director I feel that it is a gree 
priority," said Felix Adams. 

Students also appreciated th< 
fact that they had some way of know 
ing their grades early in the semester 

"I think that they really benefi 
students by letting them know when 
they stand after a six-week period, 
said Randy Robertson, Kansas Cit] 

Oharah planned to continue 
with the program because of its 
success and he hoped it continued tc 
help students in the future.

Two groups that 
kept butler at the top of 
the list for students 
considering agriculture 
as a major were the show 
management and live- 
stock judging members. 
The show management 
participants were respon- 
sible for learning to feed, 
doctor, and manage 
selected stock for local 
ranchers as if they were 
their own stock. Early 
mornings before class, 
group members fed and 
trained livestock. 

"If you have an 
8:00 a.m. class, and it's 
your turn to do chores, 
you're getting up pretty 
early. You have to allow 
about an hour and a half 
to two hours to get 
everything done", stated 
Troy Richardson, Eureka 

Show manage- 
ment members went to 
livestock shows where 
they either competed or 
ran the competition. 
They played a vital role 
in the Beef Expo held at 
the Kansas Coliseum in 
the spring. 

While show 
m anagement gave hands- 
on experience, livestock 
judging dealt with 
making assessments 
about livestock. After a 
day of classes, team 
members spent their late 
afternoon and evening 
hours judging area stock 
to learn how the perfect 
steer, gilt, or ram looked 
walked, stood, or carried 
its weight. 

But their long 
hours were just practice 

for the actual contests. 
Team members would 
get up around 4:30 a.m., 
eat breakfast, and then 
break into groups, after 
being briefed by Fland- 
ers. Members would then 
judge 12 classes of four 
head each, brake for a 
half hour lunch, and 
comeplete eight sets of 
oral reasons to finish up 
the day. 

"Oral reasons are 
a two minute speech 
explaining why you 
placed the class as you 
did", explained instructor 
Blake Flanders. 

"Without a 
doubt, we are the top team 
in Kansas. We have also 
been in the top ten in 
every national contest 
with the exception of 
one", said Flanders. 

Being on the top 
was nothing new for the 
judging team, they were 
also on the top of the list 
for average GPA rank- 
ings for activities. 

"We have a 
group of students right 
now who academically 
are strong, and usually 
when they are academic- 
ally strong, they will be 
strong livestock judgers. 
The two go hand in hand' ', 
said Flanders. 

The two groups 
also worked hand in hand, 
learning off each other. 
Many of the same mem- 
bers were in both groups. 
They were two groups in 
one, participating not 
only in their own events, 
but supporting the sports 
teams and such campus 
activities as intramurals. 
Wherever you looked you 
could always find them.

If it happenec 
on campus, they knew 
about it. 

"We record his

Watkins, Grizzi> 
adviser, said as she sai 
among the confusion 
which overflowed in 
the adjoining Grizzly 
and Lantern rooms. 

The Lantern 
the college newspaper 
and the Grizzly, the 
college annual, docu- 
mented the year, and it 
took some unique 
students to do it. 

students must want to 
do it. Very few have 
hacf prior experience," 
Dave Kratzer, Lantern 
adviser, said. 

One of the best 
joints of working in the 

"We record

journalism department 
was the informal and 
friendly atmosphere 
between both the stud- 
ents and the advisers. 

"I enjoy the 
informal contact with 
the student. I think that 
yearbook students are 
brighter and wittier 
than the norm," Diane 
Wahto, assistant 
Grizzly adviser, said. 

The newspaper 
staff worked together 
as a group to put the 
paper out on time each 
week. This together- 
ness prompted Kratzer 
to refer to the Lantern 
as "the hate factory." 

"The students 
must be competitive for 
stories but they will 
come through for each 
other," Kratzer said. 

There are draw- 
backs to working in 

college journalism, 
though. A conflict 
between the admin- 
istration and the 
Lantern during the year 
brought this point to 
public attention. 

The conflict 
arose when the Lantern 
printed what the Board 
of Trustees thought to

to get in- 
that's what

dent of El Dorado. 

The Nursing 
Club encouraged mem- 
bers to get involved. 
Students and instruc- 
tors interacted in a 
situation that was not 
classroom related ac- 
cording to Andrews. 

Andrews, who 
also held the office of 
treasurer in the Kansas 
State Nursing Associ- 
ation, believed involve- 
ment in professional 
organizations after 
graduation was im- 
portant if nurses wanted 
policies changed. 

Members at- 
tended conferences and 

conventions where they 
heard speaker-focus 
sessions, learned about 
different areas of 
nursing and gained 
insight on legal issues 
pertaining to nursing. 

For four of the 
last six years the Nurs- 
ing Club won the state- 
wide traveling trophy 
forexcellence. Wichita 
State University won 
the trophy last year. 

"I hope they 
don't get too attached 
to that trophy. We 
intend to have it back 
on Butler's campus at 
the end of the year," 
said Andrews.

Andrews, El Dorado 
sophomore, decided to be a 
nurse because four members of 
her family were already nurses. 
(Photo by Mary Soyez) 

Nursing Club President Kim Andrews led a hectic 
lifestyle. As a third semester nursing student and 
mother of two, she gave a whole new meaning to 
the phrase early bird. Andrews often jumped out of 
bed at 4:00 a.m. and didn't turn in at night until the 
children were in bed and her studies were done. 

"I have had to learn to reprioritize the things that 
are important to me. My family and school come 
first," said Andrews. 

Andrews' decision to become a nurse was heavily 
influenced by the fact that her mother, brother, 
sister-in-law and aunt were all registered nurses. 

"I think I saw them helping people and I wanted 
to be able to help give someone the same type of 
help and care," said Andrews. 

Andrews felt it was a great honor to be president 
of the Nursing Club, but she took special pride in 
holding the office of treasurer on the state level. 

"My main goal is to increase membership and 
awareness. Butler has an excellent program and 
I feel very fortunate to be a part of it," said Andrews. 
Not only was Andrews a full-time student and 
mother, but she was also involved in the work study 
scholarship program at Wesley Medical Center. 

"It's an excellent opportunity for me to gain training 
and experience. I work in the labor, delivery and 
recovery unit which I enjoy. It's more than a 
learning experience, it is an extremely rewarding 
and joyful kind of work," said Andrews.

Take sixty tal-

a love for music and an 
incredible amount of 
enthusiasm and what do 
you get? Both the 
largest and the smallest 
singing groups on 
campus. The Concert 
Choir, directed by 
Linda Pohly, was the 
largest, and the Barber 
Shop Quartet, the 
smallest, was designed 
and directed by Valerie 

Mack got the 
idea to start the quartet 
mainly because her 
father had been 
involved in a quartet. 

"My father's 
group and the groups 
that I saw this summer 
were just phenomenal," 
said Lippoldt-Mack. 

Pohly started 
the choir when she first 
came to campus. In the 
intervening years the 
choir has undergone 
tremendous growth. 

"It's a real 
pleasure to see how it's 


grown," said Pohly. 
"When I started 20 
students were enrolled. 
This semester there are 
55 involved," said 

Both groups 
perform a variety of 

"I believe in a 
variety of music styles. 
Our music depends on 
who we are enter- 
taining. Usually if we 
sing for older crowds, 
then we perform most 
of a barber shop style. 
With the younger 
crowds we try to create 
more of a comedy style 
and we often enjoy 
doing some 50's 
numbers," said Mack. 

"At Christmas 
when we perform with 
the Wichita Symphony 
Orchestra, which is 
sponsored by Texaco, 
we include an arrange- 
ment of traditional 
Christmas carols, con- 
temporary Christmas 
songs as well as the 
Hallelujah Chorus 
from the Messiah," 
Pohly said.

did it to show their stuff.

emic Excellence Chal- 
lenge Team. Commun- 
ity college's equi- 
valent to HighQ. They 
gathered together with 
their buzzers, the ques- 
tions, and Judy Carney, 
their sponsor. 

Not only did 
they show what they 
knew, but they also 
learned a few things 
about themselves. 

"I learned that I 
do not have quick recall 
at all because they beat 
me all the time. Even 
when I know the 
answer, they can pull it 

out of the air faster than 
I can remember it," said 

"It has helped 
me learn to think 
quicker and process 
information faster," 
said Dave Turner, 
Wichita freshman. 

The team com- 
peted against other 
community college 
teams in the state. If 
they placed high 
enough in state a cash 
bonus would be award- 
ed, a bonus that encou- 
raged many to show 
their stuff. 

Student Lea- 
dership Council also 
had some stuff to show.

interests. For example,

While talk of 
war in the Gulf ran 
rampant over campus, 
a different kind of war 
took place in the 
Theater Department. It 
was "A War of 
Angels," a two-act play 
performed Feb. 28, 
March 1, 2, and 4. 

Two Butler in- 
structors, Bob Peterson 
and Phil Speary, wrote 
and directed the prod- 
uction. The men wrote 
the play because they 
could find no one-act 
plays that they wanted 
to work with. The dra- 
ma portrayed both good 
and evil, both heaven 
and hell in the setting 
of a college fraternity. 

Speary wrote 
the first act. Titled 
"Luke", for the arch- 
angel Lucifer. It took 
place in October 1969, 

during the time of the 
Vietnam conflict. The 
first act took place on 
Homecoming weekend 
in the parlor of the 
fraternity house. 

The second act, 
written by Peterson, 
was titled "Mike" for 
the other archangel 
Michael. It took place 
in April 1990 during 
the Persian Gulf War. 
It was the weekend 
before spring break and 
was set in a cemetery. 

The two acts 
paralleled each other 
and were tied together 
by the fact that Mike is 
Luke's nephew. 

According to 
Peterson, the first act 
was a drama with com- 
edy relief and the se- 
cond act was a comedy 
with drama relief. 

"If the two acts 
were amusement rides, 
mine would be the 


haunted house while 
Bob's would be the 
carousel," laughed 

"Or if the acts 
were drinks, Phil's 
would be straight 
scotch while mine 
would be light, bub- 
bling champagne," 
added Peterson. 

The production 
involved a total of 16 
crew members. 

"I feel like this 
has been the richest ex- 
perience I've had as far 
as theater is concerned. 
It has been very reward- 
ing to work with two 
different directors and 
to play both a good and 
a bad character," said 
Eric Kaiser, El Dorado 
sophomore, who play- 
ed Luke and Mike. 

"Angels" mir- 
rored the conflict of 
both the past and pre- 
sent wars successfully.

The crowd 
bursts into a spell of 
screaming, yelling, and 
clapping. Has the star 
athlete just made the 
big play? No, it's one 
of Butler' s spirit squads 
leading the fans in a 
cheer for the Grizzlies 
orenter-taining them at 

Both the cheer- 
leading squad and the 
Honeybears dance 
team are made up of 
full-time students who 
are awarded a scholar- 
ship for their talent and 
hard work. Tryouts are 
held for both squads 
and the best partici- 
pants are selected to 
serve as members of the 

team they tried out for. 

Being a 

cheerleader or 

Honeybear took time 
and discipline. 

"The only 
draw-backs for me 
were not having time 
for myself and not 
having a spring break. 
Cheerleading takes a lot 
of time so sometimes 
it's hard to find time to 
study," Bethany 
Young, El Dorado 
freshman, said. 

A conflict 
erupted when Rick 
Dreiling, athletic dir- 
ector, Everett Kohls, 
dean of students, and 
Rodney Cox, president, 
introduced a plan to 
combine the two 
squads. However, the 

Enthusiasm 1 

dea was met with much 
opposition, especially 
from members of both 

"It got really 
ikgly," Rebecca John- 
son- Kuntz, Honeybear 
ponsor, said. 

After adminis- 
trators heard the 
negative reactions, they 
dropped the idea and 
the teams will remain 
5 eparate. Team mem- 
bers seemed satisfied 
with that decision. 

Wherever the 
Spirit squads per- 
formed, though, they 
lived up to their name 
by showing the spirit] 
that Butler has for! 
upporting its teams. 

"I always 
looked fun, 
the stunts. 
The oppor- 
tunity was 
there and I 
took it."

ga, the drama fraternity 
is the oldest fraternity 
at Butler, as it wa> 
founded in 1935 when 
the college was E

Approximately 11* 
members met even' 
other Thursday.

rie and esprit de corps,' 
said Bob Peterson, the 
club's sponsor. 





and esprit 

de corps'' 


Delta Psi Ome- 
ga members volunteer- 
ed as a service group to 
the college, acting as 
ushers at plays and 
serving the Fine Arts 
Department in other 
ways. Most of the stud- 
ents involved in theater 
belonged to the club 
which is also well- 
known for its holiday 
scavenger hunts. 

In order to 
become a member, one 
must have contributed 
in a positive way to two 
or more shows. At ini- 
tiation, Delta names 
were given. The names 
related to a person's 
exploits or accomplish- 
ments, usually a role 
that he or she had 
played or some es- 
capade that he or she 
hadn't lived down. 

The other or- 
ganization in the fine 
arts department was the 
Art Club, which was 
open to any students 
interested in art. The 


organization provided 
students a chance to 
discuss art with other 
students with the same 
interests, according to 
Robert Chism, the club 

The Art Club 
has been in operation 
for approximately 20 
years. Its activities dur- 
ing the year included a 
field trip to Kansas City 
where members toured 
the Nelson Art Gallery, 
the Kansas City Art 
Gallery, the Kansas 
City Art Institute, and 
Hallmark. Guest artists 
visited during the meet- 
ings which were held 
once a month. The club 
also sponsored the 
Student Art Show and 

Whatever the 
activity, both groups 
found that the most 
important benefit was 
meeting new friends 
and having fun with 
people who shared 
similar interests.

Belonging to 
Delta Epsilon Chi or 
Phi Beta Lambda gave 
many students an 
opportunity to learn 
valuable skills needed 
for their majors. 

Delta Epsilon 
Chi was a student or- 
ganization for those 
interested in careers in 
marketing, merchand- 
ising, and managing. 
Sponsored by Kevin 
Belt, marketing teach- 
er, the Delta Epsilon 
Chis met twice a week 
to prepare for competi- 
tions. A state competi- 
tion of ten area com- 
munity colleges and 
three vocational tech- 
nical schools, allowed 
students the oppor- 
tunity to advance to 
national competition. 

The Delta Ep- 
silon Chis took their 
annual trip to Dallas 
where they toured ma- 
jor companies such as 
Mary Kay Cosmetics, 
Apparell Mart, The 
World Trade Center, 
and Tech Max. They 
talked to the buyers, 
sellers, and marketers 
who make the compan- 
ies a success. 

The Chis also 
hosted a spring high 


school contest to pre- 
pare them for their state 
competitions. "Delta 
Epsilon Chi allows 
students to develop into 
future leaders and 
receive good work ex- 
perience while having 
fun," Brett Hartley, 
Delta Epsilon Chi pre- 
sident, said about the 
organization's benefits. 

Phi Beta Lamb- 
da, on the other hand, 
provided opportunities 
to those interested in 
other aspects of busi- 
ness besides marketing. 
Phi Beta Lambda was 
an organization for 
those interested in

earn unity, 
great sophomore leader- 
ship, and common goals, 
no matter if one is playing 
offense, playing defense, 
or playing sideline — 
those were the strong 
points of the football 
team, Tom Saia, head 
coach said. 

On Aug. 13, the 
football team gathered at 
Butler to begin football 
practice. There were 55- 
60 players on the team, 
including 20 returning 

"We had prob- 
ably the best freshmen 
team I 'd been around in a 
longtime. We had a good 
freshman nucleus with a 
lot of talent but they had 
a long ways to go," Saia 

Saia explained 
that this had a lot to do 
with the freshmen's 
maturity level rather than 
with their athletic 
abilities. Freshmen go 
through many peaks and 
valleys — some are away 
from home for the first 

"There's a lot of 
growing up to do and we 
realize that, but with our 
sophomores' help and the 
coaches' help, they get 
through it." 

The Grizzlies 
were hot - literally - as 
the season began. The 
temperature was over 100 
degrees but that didn't 
affect the team as they 
began with a 3-0 season. 

"It's part of the 
game — the weather, the 
rain. I ' d like to play Cof- 
feyville on a dry field but 
that's football and that's 

Kansas," Saia said. 

There's more to 
this team than just playing 
football, though "I think 
that the coach/player 
relationship is what 
football's about," said 
Saia, "I think that's the 
greatest thing about 
coaching. I cherish that." 

"We're very, 
very tight as a group off 
the field as well as on. 
There is also a good 
relationship between the 
team and coach," Andre 
Burnette, Johnson City, 
Term, sophomore said. 

"The relation- 
ship between the players 
off the field is vital to a 
team. You must care 
about the otherplayers as 
people, too. I don't think 
anyone is better at that 
than we are at Butler 
County," Saia said.

In August, the 
football team was bowl- 
bound, but by October, 
after several goal- 
quenchers, the chances of 
playing in a bowl game 
seemed slim. However, 
in November, the season 
ended with an 8-4 record 
and the chance for a third 
consecutive bowl 

"I don't think 
that we really came into 
the team concept that we 
strive for until we lined 
up at Independence and 
that was our eighth game. 
When we did that, I think 
that we came into our 
own," Tom Saia, head 
coach, said. 

Much time and 
effort was put into that 
team concept and making 
the team a winning one. 

"We conditioned 
our players Sunday 

through Thursday and I 
think it showed the effects 
when we played Fort 
Scott. We were so much 
more well-conditioned 
than they were," Saia 

"Some of the 
highlights of the season 
were rebounding back 
from a 4-3 record to go 8- 
4, winning the bowl 
game, and coming within 
three minutes of 
knocking off the number 
one team in the nation," 
Saia said. 

"I think that we 
played well offensively 
and defensively, espe- 
cially in the last five 
games," Saia said. 

Saia added that 
the offense was incon- 
sistent but improved with 
each week and the players 

"I don't think 
that the offense played to 
its ability," Marcus 
Grayson, Kansas City 
sophomore, said. 

Most thought 

that the defensive team 
was more consistent. 

"We had a great 
defense. It kept us alive 
during all the games," Joe 
Sampson, Delvalle, Tex., 
freshman, said. 

One of the high- 
lights of the season was 
participating in the East 
Bowl against Lees- 
McRae in Johnson City, 
Tenn., on Nov. 18. The 
Grizzlies came out on top 
with a score of 23-8. 

"We can attri- 
bute the winning of the 
East Bowl to great team 
effort — offense, defense, 
and specialty. It was also 
a lot of Purple Pride, 
emotion, and intensity," 
Saia said. 

"I thought that at 
the end of the season, we 
could have played a good 
game against any team at 
the junior college level in 
the nation," Saia said. 

Knowing the 
intensity of that "Purple 
Pride" and the Grizzlies, 
Saia could be correct.

t's a building 
season. That's what 
everyone said about this 
year's team. None of the 
women had ever played 
college ball before and 
only a few of the women 
had played together in 
high school competition. 
Head coach, Dave 
Slayton said that all he 
wanted from the women 
was 100 percent effort 
and to see improvement. 
The women did just that. 

From their first game to 
their last, they showed 
improvement and kept 
positive attitudes. 

"I know our 
record didn't show that 
we played very well, but 
we did our best," said El 
Dorado freshman Mel- 
anie Schaker. "We 
played with Barton 
County, the second best 
team in the nation, and 
we almost beat Hutch, 
one of the best teams in 
the league." 

Even though 
they lost and lost and lost, 
they still felt that the 

season was worth the ef- 
fort and time because of 
the friendships made and 
the exciting road trips. 

"The funniest 
trip of the season was our 
five-hour drive to 
Liberal," said El Dorado 
freshman Denae Duryea. 
"We got to Liberal early, 
so we all went to Wal- 
Mart, bought popcorn 
and slurpies and walked 
around. I was sad to see 
the season end but I still 
keep in touch with the 
girls on the team and I 
even made some really 
close friendships."

t happened in 
December and it wasn ' t 
Christmas. It required 
an invitation and it 
wasn't the winter 
formal. It was the 
fourth annual Ev Kohls 
Classic Invitational 
basketball tournament. 
Shorter College of 
Arkansas and Allen 
County Community 
College men and 
Northeast Nebraska 
and Friends University 
women were invited. 

The classic had 
its beginnings four 
years ago when former 
athletic director Tom 
Spicer and former 
women's basketball 

coach Steve Kirkham 
wanted to have a 
tournament for both the 
men ' s and the women ' s 
teams. In previous 
years the tournaments 
for men and women 
were held separately or 
held only for the men. 
When it came time to 
name the tourney they 
chose to name it in 
honor of Ev Kohls. 

"They were 
desperate. No, I guess 
they chose me because 
I was the guy who 
started women's 
basketball here and I 
had held a women's 
tourney the two years 
before," said Ev Kohls, 
dean of students. 

The Grizzlies 
have enjoyed a great 

deal of success in the 

"The women 
have never lost a game 
in the tourney. As a 
matter of fact, I don't 
think the men have 
either," said Kohls. 

The Grizzlies 
continued their success 
in the tourney winning 
all of their games. The 
men began the tourney 
by downing Shorter 
College 110-76. They 
finished off the classic 
by blasting Allen 
County 109-71. The 
women began as they 
swept pass Northeast 
Nebraska 80-72. They 
continued their success 
by defeating Friends

.t started out to 
be a season of 
rebuilding but ended up 
a season of success. 

At the end of 
last year's season there 
were only eight players 
on the women's basket- 
ball team. This year, 
despite the fact that 
three returning sopho- 
mores left the team, 
twelve players, all 
freshmen, remained. 

"The season 
turned out a lot better 
than what I thought it 
would. The womens 
team worked just as 
hard if not harder than, 
the mens team," said 
Womens Basketball 
Coach Darin Spence. 

All of the 
freshmen players were 
recruited not only from 
Kansas but from all 
over the United States, 
including two from 
Tennessee and one 
from Arkansas. 

"At first at my 
old high school I was 
recruited by a lot of 
schools and got a lot of 
mail. Then when eight 
of us girls couldn't get 
along with the coach 
and we quit, the letters 
stopped. Finally I was 
recruited by Butler and 
that's how I ended up 
here," said Tracy 
Eaton, Knoxville 
Tenn., freshman. 

"We wanted to 
recruit a variety of 
young players to start 
rebuilding for the 

future," said Spence. 

For the most 
part the freshman team 
seemed to stick toget- 
her and display a lot of 
teamwork during their 

"Since we were 
all new during the first 
semester no one knew 
what the other person 
was going to do. Now 
you can tell what their 
moves are by their 
facial expressions," 
said Rebecca Horst, 
Salina freshman. 

"For being a lot 
of inexperienced play- 
ers in the beginning 
they have become the 
best players this school 
has ever had. There 
has never been a team 
with this much talent or 
depth," said Spence. 

Who's your hero? 

"Larry Bird, because he has 

worked on his skills a lot harder 

than most players in the NBA!' - 

- Emily Unruh, Galva 


"Michael Jordan: He's not really 

my hero, but I look up to him 

because of all the amazing 

things he can do." --Rebecca

The women 
kicked off the show, 
defeating Seward 
County, 84-49, in a run 
and gun game. Next 
came the men putting 
in an exciting half of 
defensive basketball. 
The half-time score was 
38-30. During half- 
time the air was almost 
tense with suspense as 
Mike Schrieber and Jeri 
Garland were crowned 
king and queen. 

The king him- 

self described the event 
as "no big deal," and 
Garland admitted, "I 
didn't tell many 
people." Both royalty 
kept the low profile

came back out and 
finished off Seward 
County 91-62.

dance and there was

coming had come and 
gone barely making a 
ripple. It came in with 
a whimper and went 
out with a yawn.

Homecoming dance was small, but

That scene was 
repeated game after 
game as the men 
cranked out a regular 
season record of 24-6. 

With new team 
members the early sea- 
son was, a time to work 
out a few kinks and find 
their style of play. A 
style that would in no 
way resemble last 
year's team. The name 
of the game became 

"The key to our 

season is defense. 
When we're at our best 
defensively we can shut 
anybody down," said 
Mike Schreiber, Over- 
land Park sophomore. 
"We began 
winning off our defense 
and our offense took 
care of itself," said 
assistant coach Mark 

By mid-season 
things began to click 
and the team enjoyed 

"Once every- 
body made a commit- 
ment to what we want- 
ed to accomplish and 
the goals we wanted to 
get done, we started to 
have more success," 
said Schreiber. 

As the end of 
the season neared, the 
team moved up the 
ranks finally defeating 
Barton County to top 
the Jayhawk Juco West 
Division. With the 

pieces falling together 
the team continued to 

"Our offense 
keys off our defense, if 
our defense is playing 
well our offense will 
come," said Schreiber. 

"We have a lot 
of guys who can score 
and our offense is 
designed so that every- 
one has a chance to get 
a shot," said Darrell 
Harmon, Chicago, 111., 

"Our offense 
appears different every 
night. Each night a dif- 
ferent player steps up 
to lead the offense. 
That's why we're so 
tough," said Nelson. 

The team had 
finally refined their 
game, polished their 
style, and adjusted their 
timing. They headed

ens and 
womens tennis teams 
could predict their 
success in the spring by 
their competitiveness 
in the fall. The teams 
didn ' t keep records for 
their fall performance 
but Curt Shipley, head 
coach for the past 11 
years, thought the 
teams would be 
determined to win. 

"We're going to 
have a good solid tennis 
team. But we're not 
going to be nationally 
competitive," said 

Shipley, who began 
the tennis program in 
1979 because he missed 

the interaction with 
students and thought 
Butler needed a varsity 
tennis team, predicted 
the mens team would 
finish as high as third 
and the women would 
finish a little lower. 

Five players 
returned from last 
season and seven new 
players totaled an 
inexperienced, but 
scrappy team. The team 
had high hopes for the 
spring but at semester 
two key players 

"We expected to 
have a great season, but 
with the loss of two key 
players at semester 
we'll have to work 
twice as hard," said 
Brian Fankhauser, El 

Dorado sophomore. 

Joining Fankhauser 
on the mens team were 
Bill Forrest and Tyce 
Jones, sophomores. 
Freshmen included 
Jason Smith, Chris 
White and Thomas 

On the womens 
team, Dana Geiman 
and Denise White were 
the established return- 
ing players. Freshmen 
talent included Joann 
Tighe, Cindy Watkins 
and Penny Wellner. 

Tennis players train- 
ed year round on their 
own for the two sea- 
sons. They practiced 
from August to October 
then returned to the 
courts in February.

990 was a year 
of trivia and tragedy. 
From who killed Laura 
Palmer to why is America 
at war in the Gulf, many 
questions had no 

Along with puz- 
zling questions came 
plenty of trivial 
information that left 
America smiling. 

Box office 
movies seemed to be the 
most prominent of all 
time. Teenage Mutant 
Ninja Turtles led the path 
with its success. The 
smash hit movie Pretty 
Woman brought in enor- 
mous crowds to the box 
office. Last but certainly 
not least was Home Alone 
which made close to 100 
million dollars. 

The Giants de- 
feated the Buffalo Bills 
20-18 in the '90 Super 

"This is an historic 
moment. ..I am 
convinced not 
only that we will 
prevail, but that 
out of the horror of 
combat will come 
the recognition 
that no nation can 
stand against a 
world united,"

In the music 
industry, country music 
star Naomi Judd retired 
from the music business 
due to a life-threatening 
illness. Madonna's video 
Justify My Love was 
banned from MTV due 
to obsenities. Rappers 2 
Live Crew received a lot 
of parental fire because 
of the explicit and 
obscene lyrics on their 
album Nasty As They 
Wanna Be. 

In mid-October 
more than 200,000 U.S. 
troops were deployed to 
Saudi Arabia to defend 
the Saudis from a possible

Yellow ribbons

hundreds injured.

A fresh look 
came to Butler when 
Kirk Wren moved from 
assistant to head track 
and cross country 
coach and spurred on 
returning team mem- 
bers to a winning 

"At the begin- 
ning of the season, a lot 
of people, including 
team members, didn't 
think I had what it took, 
but I think I've 
dispelled their doubts," 
said Kirk Wren. 

Under Wren 
and All-American 
sophomore talents 
Mike Becker and 
Anthony Williams, the 
Grizzly men were 
assured a berth at the 
National Meet in 
Brevard, N.C. 

"The freshmen 
are going to be the 
difference this year," 
Becker said. And come 
through they did. Mike 

Carr, Kansas City 
freshman, led the way. 
Carr took seventh place 
in cross-country at 
Regionals with a time 
of 26: 14 seconds. Cade 
Caselman, Salina fresh- 
man, took ninth with a 
time of 26:19, Jesse 
Schroeder, Downs 
freshman, followed 
with a thirteenth place 
with a time of 26:55 
and Jeff Wacker, Win- 
field freshman, ran 

The womens 
cross country team 
suffered from lack of 
numbers. The only 
sophomore, Anamosa, 
Iowa's June Swisher 
brought leadership to 
the womens team. 

"My women 
did a fantastic job this 
year," said Wren. "I'm 
looking forward to a 
positive season next 

On the indoor 
circuit, Butler had not 
had a National Champ- 

ion in over six years; 
this year, Butler com- 
petitors won two 
national champion- 
ships. Mike Becker, 
Downs sophomore, 
won the 2-mile champ- 
ionship with a personal 
best time of 9:07.4. 
Reggie Jones, Kansas 
Ciity,won the triple 
jump with a leap of 52- 
10 3/4. 

The season was 
"somewhat up and 
down," Wren said. 
"We went some places 
and beat some Division 
I schools and fell to 
some I thought would 
have not given us 

Even though 
the men finished in a 
respectable fifth place 
at Nationals, Troy 
Adkins, Overland Park 
sophomore, said, "In a 
way it was kind of 
disappointing. We 
know we are stronger 
than that. We'll be there 

Who's you r hero ?

idden in- 
side the 500 Building down 
below where few students 
venture was a place called 
The Doctor Larry Abraham 
Sports Medicine Center, 
better known as the training 
room. The best-kept secrets 
on campus spun their 
medicinal webs in this 
training room. These 
unsung heroes kept the 
athletic programs running. 
These secret craftsmen, the 
trainers, put in many long 
hours, sometimes seven 
days a week. They did this 
for what; glory and 
recognition? Not this job. 

Well, let's put it this way. 
I've never been asked to do 
an interview for being a 
trainer before. No, there 
really isn't much recog- 
nition," reflected Mike Nor- 
strom, Galva sophomore. 

"We're hidden 
heroes. Some athletes don't 
even know who we are until 
they need us," said Brian 
Brinegar, Salina freshman. 

"I tell the kids not 
to expect any recognition or 
a lot of praise," said Todd 
Carter, head athletic trainer/ 

"A lot of people 
don't know what we do. 
They think it's just taping 
ankles, carrying water and 
running out on the field 
when a player is hurt. There 
is a lot more to it than just 
that," added Carter. 

More to it than just 
that? Yes, there was plenty 
more to it than just that. 

"My job is being 

the initial person to work 
with the injury and to decide 
whether the player m ust see 
a doctor. I'm in charge of 
treating the injury, rehab- 
ilitating and getting the 
player back into competition 
playing at, or as near to, 
100% as before," said 

The trainers' 
duties fell into six major 
categories: prevention of 
injuries; evaluation; ed- 
ucation and counseling; 
checking the playing field 
for places where injury 
could occur and admin- 
istrative duties. 

The list of tasks for 
a trainer was as long as the 
days they put in. Trainers 
had to learn the how-tos of 
taping and bracing. They 
had to know how to decide 
on treatments such as 
whirlpool, hot packs, or 
icing. They were involved 
in the decision of when to 
return an athlete to 
competition. Trainers were 
there to help the athletes with 
things such as nutrition and 
diet. When the athletes were 
gone the trainers were still 
at work cleaning up and 
restocking for the next day. 

"Sometimes an 
athlete will say,' You don't 
know what it's like.' But I 
do know what they go 
through - 1 make it a point to 
know," said Brinegar. 

Being a trainer was 
a selfless job. The 
mountainous responsi- 
bilities combined with the 
lack of glory led one to ask 
why they did it. 

There was one 
common answer, an answer 
that linked them together. 
The bottom line was they 

were in it for the athletes. A 
conversation with any 
trainer revealed this fact. 

"It's all about 
caring for someone else," 
said Brinegar. 

"I came here to 
work with the athletes. This 
is my chance, since I'm not 
that athletic, to work with 
the athletes and be involved 
with sports," said Norstrom. 

The job of a trainer 
took many sacrifices but it 
was not a job without 

"It was exciting 
watching ESPN the other 
night and seeing Herbert 
Jones (Butler 1989-90 All 
American Basketball play- 
er) play knowing that I had 
worked with him. My most 
rewarding experience was 
working with a basketball 
player who hurt his leg last 
year. He's just now getting 
back into the swing of 
things. The reward is know- 
ing I was a part of his rehab- 
ilitation, " said Norstrom. 

"Rewards happen 
everyday, just through 
helping people. I enjoy the 
people. Helping to motivate 
an athlete through a 
frustrating injury motivates 
me," said Kim Keesling, 
Chase sophomore. 

Future plans for 
the trainers vary. Norstrom 
hopes to become a profes- 
sional trainer. Danny Niles, 
Mulvane freshman, plans to 
be a physical therapist. Al- 
though the reasons that 
brought them together were 
diverse and future plans 
varied the common bond of 
caring for others united these 
secret heroes down in that 
hidden place called the 
training room.

On January 13, 1991, the Soviet 

army imposed a curfew and took

We were watched throughout 
the year, in everything from 
sports to trustees' meetings. All 
eyes were on us as we made our 
journey thorough 1990 and 
entered in 1991 with gracefulness 

unrivaled. We overcame 

obstacles by using our knowledge 
gained by competing in life's 
open contest. Only the strong 
and courageous survived. We 
came out on the top, shinning for 

the world to see. 

As the final pages of this book are finished, it gives me a 
moment to reflect. Various images grace the back of my eyelids as 
I struggle to stay awake. 

Images of events such as St. Louis with cinnamon rolls, the 
ride up the arch, the "singing sailors", and "Pretty Woman". The 
everyday comedies, joke time, Mt. Dew, and sunflower seeds.. .tons 
of Mt. Dew and sunflower seeds. 

To each staff member, I would like to say, "Thank You. 
You were behind me 1 10% the entire year, even if you did not 
want to make that one last correction. Your dedication has enabled 
us to produce the best book yet. I love each and everyone of you". 

To each student reading this book, I would like to say, 
"Thanks to you too. Without you, there would have been no reason 
to have a book. The diversity and cooperation of each of you is 
what made this book what it is". 

To the faculty, staff, and administration I would like to say, 
"Thanks for all your help and understanding. I hope you also will 
be pleased with the contents of this book". 

The Grizzly staff put many hours into planning, 
interviewing, writing and rewriting, printing and pasting down to 
make this book what it is. I hope that you will not view it as pieces 
of paper, but pieces of all those involved. 

May you enjoy your yearbook for years to come, 

Julie Corbin
